Bar brawl brews in San Carlos


By Michelle Durand
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

San Carlos top law enforcement ofcial is worried plans to expand a downtown bar with an outdoor patio and stage could also balloon the already high number of alcoholrelated arrests and incidents at the establishment.

Carlos Club owner Fred Duncan will ask the Planning Commission Monday night to approve a conditional use permit and architectural review of his expansion plans for the bar at 612 El Camino Real. The proposal would add food service via a truck or outdoor kitchen, a deck usable as a small stage, a fountain and furniture on a patio that

replaces the existing rear parking lot. A 6-foot stucco wall would close the patio off from the alley on the south side and while a tiki bar is also envisioned it is not part of the pending application. Duncan did not return calls for comment on his application or on the public safety concerns voiced by police Capt. Greg Rothaus, head of

the San Carlos bureau of the San Mateo County Sheriffs Ofce. Rothaus said his participation in a planning request is rare I havent spoke on a development issue in my history here but that he wants to provide the Planning Commission with all his objective data so it can make a well-informed decision. For Rothaus, that informa-

tion includes a list of statistics about the citys overall number of alcohol establishments and the Carlos Clubs place among them high on the radar for worry about crime and police contact. Aside from public safety, the application conforms with many of

Initiative would raise sales tax and increase tax on wealthy
By Judy Lin
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO Facing another budget decit and the prospect of deep cuts to education, Gov. Jerry Brown plans to le a ballot initiative as early as Friday that asks voters to increase taxes on the wealthy and raise the sales tax by half a cent. The initiative would be intended for the Jerry Brown November ballot and would maintain a pledge Brown made during his 2010 gubernatorial race not to raise taxes without a vote of people. A legislative source who had been briefed on the proposal but was not authorized to speak publicly told The Associated Press on Thursday the initiative would call for adding an extra 1 percent tax on individuals earning more than $250,000 a year. Individuals making between $300,000 and $500,000 would be taxed an additional 1.5 percent, while those making more than $500,000 would be taxed another 2 percent. Joint lers who earn more than $500,000 would face an extra 1 percent, those making $600,000 to $1 million would face an

The American dream is under siege and Congress needs to support job creation rather than making drastic cuts to the budget, a group of Occupy sympathizers said at a rally in Belmont yesterday. They also rallied against banks, saying they are responsible for the sinking middle class.

This Day in History

1961

Cuban leader Fidel Castro declared himself a Marxist-Leninist who would eventually lead Cuba to Communism in a nationally broadcast speech that began around midnight and ended ve hours later.

In 1804, Napoleon crowned himself Emperor of the French. In 1823, President James Monroe outlined his doctrine opposing European expansion in the Western Hemisphere. In 1859, militant abolitionist John Brown was hanged for his raid on Harpers Ferry the previous October. Artist GeorgesPierre Seurat was born in Paris. In 1927, Ford Motor Co. unveiled its Model A automobile that replaced its Model T. In 1939, New York Municipal Airport-LaGuardia Field (later LaGuardia Airport) went into operation as an airliner from Chicago landed at one minute past midnight. In 1942, an articially created, self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction was demonstrated for the rst time, at the University of Chicago. In 1954, the Senate voted to condemn Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy, R-Wis., for conduct that tends to bring the Senate into disrepute. In 1970, the newly created Environmental Protection Agency opened its doors. (Its first director was William D. Ruckelshaus.) In 1980, four American churchwomen were raped and murdered outside San Salvador. (Five El Salvador national guardsmen were later convicted of murdering nuns Ita Ford, Maura Clarke and Dorothy Kazel, and lay worker Jean Donovan.) In 1991, American hostage Joseph Cicippio (sih-SIHP-ee-oh), held captive in Lebanon for more than ve years, was released.

Kim Kardashians husband seeks annulment
LOS ANGELES NBA player Kris Humphries wants to undo his 10-week marriage to reality star Kim Kardashian with an annulment. Attorneys for Humphries filed a petition Thursday in Los Angeles to annul the couples brief marriage, citing Kris Humphries unspecied fraud.

Wildlife chief gets road kill warning for deer


HELENA, Mont. The head of the commission responsible for setting Montanas hunting regulations has found himself at the receiving end of one of the warnings his agency issues for illegally salvaging road kill. The Independent Record reported Tuesday that Bob Ream of the state Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission got the warning after he tagged a deer struck by his car on Nov. 12. The commission chairman says most of the carcass was salvageable, so he took it for processing. He says he didnt realize that was illegal until he mentioned it to a game warden. Wildlife ofcials say statutes limit hunting to rearms and archery during times and do not specify scenarios in which game might be taken illegally. Ream says he may seek to clarify the regulations. The warning required him to donate the meat to a food bank.

Police say the fake bills were hidden inside a wall. Theres no word on how long it may have been there. Police forwarded the counterfeit cash to the U.S. Secret Service.

S.F. area transit policy allows for cellphone outage


By Paul Elias
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Alleged post-blast scammer to trial


DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT

SAN FRANCISCO The agency that oversees the San Francisco area transit system on Thursday authorized police to turn off wireless communications in train stations, but only for extraordinary threats. The board of directors for Bay Area Rapid Transit approved the new policy Thursday. It limits blackouts to cases in which train passengers, employees or property are threatened or a substantial disruption to train service is possible. The full intent and the only intent is to preserve the safety of the patrons, the public and BART employees, said board vice president John McPartland. The board included two sentences in its policy sent by the Federal Communications Commission acknowledging that cutting cellphone service poses serious risk to public safety and should only be done when the benets outweigh the risks. Ofcials crafted the policy after BART was criticized for cutting cellphone and wireless data service in San Francisco subway stations to thwart a planned protest in August. Leaders of the protests had planned to issue demonstration instructions via text messages to protesters once they had massed on a train platform.

A San Francisco man who prosecutors say posed as a San Bruno explosion victim to secure money and other aid meant for victims of the deadly gas line catastrophe will stand trial on charges of commercial burglary, identity theft and perjury. Deonte James Bennett has pleaded not guilty to the charges but a judge found sufcient evidence at a preliminary hearing yesterday to hold him to answer on all counts but one alleging the use of multiple false applications to claim aid. He returns to court Dec. 21 to enter a Superior Court plea and set a trial date. Bennett, along with three women who previously accepted negotiated plea deals,

allegedly entered the San Bruno victim assistance center ve days after the Sept. 9, 2010 explosion and re claiming to have lost all their belongings. The re killed eight people, destroyed dozens of homes and devastated the neighborhood. Deonte On Sept. 14, 2010, they Bennett presented addresses within the disaster zone found on the Internet. They tried getting new identification from the Department of Motor Vehicles so they could then receive aid from Pacic Gas and Electric but were apprehended by San Bruno police. Two other women, Lisa Monique Justin, 42,

and Sonya Smith, 44, are San Bruno residents but live ve miles from the neighborhood affected by the gas pipeline explosion and subsequent re, according to the prosecution. Another, Niesha Marie Taylor, lives in San Francisco. Justin and Smith received credit for time served plus probation and community service. Taylor received nine months in jail. Bennett was arrested and charged at the same time but initially failed to appear in court. After his apprehension, Bennetts case went forward on its own. He remains free from custody on a $50,000 bail bond. Other post-re scam convictions brought a range of punishments, ranging from community service to prison time.

Pipeline safety officers can issue fines
The California Public Utilities Commission is giving its staff new oversight muscle by letting them ne natural gas companies for any safety problems spotted on their lines. State utility regulators have been paying close attention to pipeline safety concerns in the wake of the fatal San Bruno blast. The National Transportation Safety Board found earlier this year that a litany of failures by Pacic Gas & Electric Co. led to the Sept. 9, 2010, explosion that killed eight people, injured dozens and destroyed 38 homes. The new citation program was approved at the commissions meeting on Thursday and is effective immediately. CPUC inspectors will be able to ne pipeline companies on the spot for any violations of state and federal safety rules they nd. The nes can be appealed.

San Mateo has tapped current Walnut Creek City Clerk Patrice Olds to replace the retiring Norma Gomez, who has been with the city since 1988. Olds has been city clerk in Walnut Creek since 2005 and will ofcially join San Mateo Jan. 9. Gomezs last day with the city will be Dec. 16.

Computers stolen from school recovered,suspected burglar arrested
Seven people have been linked to a school burglary that occurred in Palo Alto over the summer, police said Thursday. Several computers stolen from Duveneck Elementary School at 705 Alester Ave. have been recovered, police said. In the July 25 burglary, someone forcibly entered the school and stole Apple laptops and iPad tablets, police said. The investigation led police to believe that 20-year-old Jaime Maldonado, of Menlo Park, was responsible for the burglary.

Its true apple juice can pose a risk to your health. But not necessarily from the trace amounts of arsenic that people are arguing about. Despite the governments consideration of new limits on arsenic, nutrition experts say apple juices real danger is to waistlines and childrens teeth. Apple juice has few natural nutrients, lots of calories and, in some cases, more sugar than soda has. It trains a child to like very sweet things, displaces better beverages and foods, and adds to the obesity problem, its critics say. Its like sugar water, said Judith Stern, a nutrition professor at the University of California, Davis, who has consulted for candy makers as well as for Weight Watchers. I wont let my 3year-old grandson drink apple juice. Many juices are fortied with vitamins, so theyre not just empty calories. But that doesnt appease some nutritionists. If it wasnt healthy in the rst place, adding vitamins doesnt make it into a health food, and if it causes weight gain, its not a healthy choice, said Karen Ansel, a registered dietitian in New York and spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association. The American Academy of Pediatrics says juice can be part of a healthy diet,

Televisions Dr.Mehmet Oz made that a key point a few months ago when he raised an alarm some say a false alarm over arsenic in apple juice,based on tests his show commissioned by a private lab.The Food and Drug Administration said that its own tests disagreed and that apple juice is safe.
but its policy is blunt: Fruit juice offers no nutritional benet for infants younger than 6 months and no benets over whole fruit for older kids. Kids under 12 consume 28 percent of all juice and juice drinks, according to the academy. Nationwide, apple juice is second only to orange juice in popularity. Americans slurp 267 ounces of apple juice on average each year, according to the Food Institutes Almanac of Juice Products and the Juice Products Association, a trade group. Lots more is consumed as an ingredient in juice drinks and various foods. Only 17 percent of the apple juice sold in the U.S. is produced here. The rest comes from other countries, mostly China, Argentina, Chile and Brazil, the association says.

Whether the drawings are egg beaters, lemon meringue pies or ancient tribal motifs, body art in the kitchen is now so mainstream that everyone from lowly kitchen rats to celebrity chefs proudly display their work on television, magazine covers, high-end catalogues and in the pages of their cookbooks, making culinistas ever more like rock stars. It used to be those cockamamie chef hats that denoted an expertise with a spatula, says Rocky Rakovic, editor of Inked magazine, a publication dedicated

to tattoo culture and that has featured several chefs. But now time in many kitchens is represented by the amount of tattoos one has. Meat cutting diagrams the different cuts of a pig or cow denoted by dotted lines and kitchen knives done like daggers are popular with chefs, tattoo artists say. Cupcakes, hot dogs, pies, equipment a stand mixer showing a reection in the stainless steel bowl receives raves from tattoo connoisseurs are standard when youre talking food tattoos. Food Network chef Duff Goldman, also known as The Ace of Cakes, has a whisk. Hugh Acheson, chef-partner of three acclaimed Georgia restaurants, who has four tattoos himself, including the names of his wife and children, as well as a Mayan god he got during a trip to the Yucatan peninsula when he was 16 (he swears he was sober).

Senate rejects payroll tax cut


By Andrew Taylor and David Espo
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Around the nation


For Herman Cain, the campaign all but over
ATLANTA Herman Cain is still campaigning for president. But by most measures, his White House bid is all but over. His standing in polls is cratering. Supporters are wavering if not fleeing. Fundraising is suffering. And, these days, the former pizza company executive is less a serious candidate than the butt of Herman Cain late-night comedy jokes after a string of accusations of sexually inappropriate behavior and, now, an allegation of a 13-yearlong extramarital affair. His chance at winning the presidency are effectively zero, said Dave Welch, a Republican strategist who worked on both of John McCains presidential bids. And Republican strategist Kellyanne Conway said: Its the daily dose of the wince-and-cringe factor that leaves people wondering what could be coming next, As it has since Ginger White stepped forward Monday, the allegation of an affair overshadowed Cains campaign for another day Thursday, when he told the New Hampshire Union Leader that his wife, Gloria, did not know he was providing the 46-year-old Atlanta-area businesswoman with money for month-to-month bills and expenses.

WASHINGTON The Senate on Thursday sidetracked rival plans to extend a Social Security payroll tax cut, in dueling votes that pave the way for negotiations on a compromise on a core component of President Barack Obamas jobs program. First, Republicans defeated Obamas plan to extend the payroll tax cut through the end of next year while also making it more generous for workers. Minutes later, in a vote that exposed rare divisions among Senate Republicans, more than two dozen of the GOPs 47 lawmakers also voted to kill an alternative plan backed by their powerful leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, to renew an existing 2 percentage point payroll tax cut. Many Republicans and even some Democrats say the payroll tax cut hasnt worked to boost jobs and is too costly with the federal decit requiring the government to borrow 36 cents of every dollar it spends. The defeat of the competing plans came as House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said for the rst time that renewing the payroll tax cut would boost the lagging economy, a view many in his party dont share. Boehner also promised compromise on a renewal of long-term jobless benets through the end of 2012. The payroll tax cuts and unemployment benets are at the center of a costly, politicallycharged year-end agenda in which Democrats seem poised to prevail in renewing a tax cut that many Republicans back only reluctantly. But Republicans are insisting in a switch from last year that the payroll tax cut and

jobless benets be paid for by cutting spending. Both parties are seeking the political high ground as next years elections loom, with Democrats accusing Republicans of siding with the rich, and Republicans countering that Democrats were taxing small business owners who create jobs. The rst payroll tax plan to fall was a Democratic measure that was the centerpiece of Obamas jobs package announced in September. It would cut the Social Security payroll tax from 6.2 percent to 3.1 percent next year and also extend the cut to employers, with its hefty $265 billion cost paid for by slapping a 3.25 percent surtax on income exceeding $1 million. Republicans and a handful of Democrats combined to kill the measure on a 51-49 tally that fell well short of the 60 required under Senate rules. For the rst time, a Republican, Susan Collins of Maine, voted to support the millionaires surcharge. The White House issued a statement by Obama that accused Republicans of voting to raise taxes on 160 million people because they refused to ask a few hundred thousand millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share.

ACLU: FBI used outreach to collect info on Muslims


WASHINGTON Heavily blacked-out internal FBI documents released Thursday indicate that the FBI, in some cases between 2007 and 2009, ran background checks on people they encountered at Muslim-related events and recorded personal information such as email addresses, phone numbers, physical descriptions and opinions in reports marked routine. The American Civil Liberties Union, which obtained the documents under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, accused the FBI of misusing its community outreach programs to collect information on people at Muslim-related events that the FBI organized or was invited to attend. Those programs were intended to improve the relationship between Muslims and the FBI. The bureau said some of the documents the ACLU published were not derived from outreach programs but were from actual criminal investigations in which it was appropriate to include specic details such as a drivers license number.

Ex-Wis.Gov.Thompson launches bid for Senate


By Scott Bauer
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MADISON, Wis. The toughest opponent Tommy Thompson may have to overcome in next years U.S. Senate race is Tommy Thompson himself. The former Wisconsin governor and U.S. Cabinet secretary formally launched his Senate bid with a rally Thursday, 13 years after his name last appeared on a ballot, though he had already been fending off attacks from Democrats and more conservative Republicans. Thompson has been criticized by both sides about his shifting position on President Barack Obamas health care reform law. And conservatives in his party say his record as

governor and as President George W. Bushs first health and human services secretary was far too moderate. The world has changed since he was elected to ofce, said Chris Chocola, president of the conservative Club for Growth, Tommy which has endorsed one of Thompson his opponents, former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann. Now were talking about how much less well spend rather than how much more well spend. The growth in state spending and the size of government during his 14 years as governor are being cast as a liability by Thompsons

rivals, and his consensus-building approach to politics seems almost quaint in the current bitterly partisan political environment. But Thompson has some things the two more conservative GOP candidates in the race dont: more than 40 years in public life, unparalleled name recognition, and a vast reservoir of good will. Its going to be a very bloody, divisive primary where most of the re is focused on Thompson and his big spending record and ip opping on issues, said Matt Canter, a spokesman for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. The seat, which has been in Democratic hands since 1957, is opening due to Herb Kohls retirement. A victory in Wisconsin would be a major pickup for Republicans looking to regain control of the Senate.

Euro debt crisis players want others to act first

U.N. says Syria now in a civil war with 4,000 dead


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEIRUT Syria has entered a state of civil war with more than 4,000 people dead and an increasing number of soldiers defecting from the army to ght President Bashar Assads regime, the U.N.s top human rights ofcial said Thursday. Civil war has been the worst-case scenario in Syria since the revolt against Assad began eight months ago. Damascus has a web of allegiances that extends to Lebanons powerful Hezbollah movement and Irans Shiite theocracy, raising fears of a regional conagration. The assessment that the bloodshed in Syria

has crossed into civil war came from the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay. The conict has shown little sign of letting up. Activists reported up to 22 people killed Thursday, adding to what has become a daily grind of violence. We are placing the (death toll) gure at 4,000 but really the reliable information coming to us is that its much more than that, Pillay said in Geneva. As soon as there were more and more defectors threatening to take up arms, I said this in August before the Security Council, that theres going to be a civil war, she added. And at the moment, thats how I am characterizing this.

FRANKFURT, Germany The major players with the power to tackle Europes nancial crisis are in a standoff to a large degree, of their own design. Each has the capacity to take strong action independently, but instead is urging one of the others to make the rst move. Thats complicating expectations for a major summit of European Union leaders next week. The European Central Bank, Germany, heavily indebted eurozone governments and the International Monetary Fund each wants, needs or expects something from someone else before taking politically difcult and risky steps to quell the crisis. The you-rst attitude at least partly a bargaining tactic is prolonging a two-year stalemate that has weighed down the continents economy and global nancial markets. The standoff got another strong expression Thursday when Mario Draghi, the head of the European Central Bank appeared to dangle more help in front of hard-pressed European leaders if they rst come up with an agreement on tough rules to bar overspending by

individual eurozone governments. Draghis timing wasnt accidental. Rules on government spending are on the agenda for the Dec. 9 summit in Brussels. The hope is that a promise of future action would be enough to calm markets. Its unclear if a promise alone would prompt the ECB get more aggressive. We might be asked whether a new scal compact would be enough to stabilize markets and how a credible longer-term vision can be helpful in the short term, Draghi said Thursday before the European Parliament. Our answer is that it is denitely the most important element to start restoring credibility. Other elements might follow, but the sequencing matters, he said. Many economists believe or at least hope the other elements might include stepping up the ECBs so-far limited purchases of government bonds. It is the step that many politicians and governments have been urging on the ECB. They say its the only thing that will reassure bond market investors that governments will be able to pay their debts, so they remain willing to lend to them at affordable rates.

Sacramento priest arrested in molestation case


SACRAMENTO A priest in the Sacramento Roman Catholic diocese has been arrested on accusations that he molested a child, Bishop Jaime Soto announced Thursday. The Rev. Uriel Ojeda, 32, turned himself in on Wednesday after the diocese received a complaint from a parishioners family, Soto said. Ojeda is assigned as parochial vicar at Our Lady of Mercy parish in Redding, in Northern California. I have personally spoken to the family involved, and they are in great pain. ... What they have endured has been difcult, and I grieve for what they have suffered and are suffering, Soto said. Yet I also admire the courage with which they have come forward. Police spokeswoman Laura Peck said Ojeda was arrested at police headquarters on suspicion of multiple molestation counts. Charges have not yet been led, said Shelly Orio, spokeswoman for the Sacramento County District Attorneys ofce. It was not immediately clear whether the priest had an attorney. In a news conference, the bishop stressed the

dioceses quick response to the allegations, which he said were brought by the family of the alleged victim on Tuesday. Soto said church ofcials immediately contacted Child Protective Services and Sacramento police. California law requires clergymen to report suspicion of child sexual abuse.

Railroad strike averted with agreements, extension


WASHINGTON The nations freight railroad industry has averted a costly strike after resolving differences with two of its unions and agreeing to extend talks with a third. The industrys bargaining representative says railroads will try to reach an agreement with the nal union before Feb. 8. Without an agreement, the unions could have begun striking as early as Tuesday. Thats when a federal cooling off period was set to expire. The agreements mean Congress will not have to intervene to block a strike. House Republican leaders had threatened to pass legislation on Friday to prevent a work stoppage.

An easy way to support a local industry


ts a simple enough task, but one that takes a little bit of time and effort. But it may be the easiest way for one person to support a local economy. Go to the coast and buy crab off a boat. Some dont like crab, and thats OK. Theres plenty of people who do, and those who do can take the simple step to help local shermen hammered by a series of issues ranging from several seasons of poor catches of both crab and salmon, to price disputes with processors and the ever-rising cost of doing business. One of the beauties of living in this area is the wide range of indus-

Editorial
try, whether it be tourism, hightech, small retailers or locally grown produce and locally caught seafood. There are few places in the world where one can live in a comfy suburban home and spend less than 20 minutes in a car to venture onto a coast that offers the freshest seafood you can nd. Now that the crab season is upon us after a two-week wait over a price dispute, it would be easy to go to the local market and buy a crab for around $7 a pound. For around $20, you could feed your family with some creative side dishes and perhaps a loaf of sourdough bread. For that same amount, you might swing two crabs and be able to invite over a neighbor or a friend with the off-the-boat price of $4 a pound. And the best thing about buying crab off the boat is that your cash goes directly into the pocket of the person who caught it, or who captained the boat that brought it in. No middleman needed. Local grocers need your cash too. But you already spend plenty of time in their aisles and you can still supplement the catch with the

food for side dishes you pick up there. The shermen need your support. The last several years have been challenging, to say the least. And there is something to be said for making that trip to the coast and spending time in the open air amongst the hard-working people who brave the ocean on their hulking ships of steel. A nice addition to any crab dinner is the memory of being amongst the boats harbored at Pillar Point after a long days work, the breezy salt air and seeing the faces of those burnished by that same air that travels above the Pacic Ocean. Bring the family. Bring friends. But get thee to the coast.

Letters to the editor


State and federal cuts should start at the top
Editor, Lets bring our Congress and Senate home. There is absolutely no need to sequester them away from their constituencies in Washington, D.C. or Sacramento. Working in their districts would give us greater access to our lawmakers, though it would make it much more difcult on lobbyists who wish to purchase them. It would certainly make them better family people, protect young children and drive prostitutes out of business. It is so simple that its laughable. If we can y an unmanned drone from the state of Nevada and kill a terrorist in Afghanistan with a direct hit, our politicians can screw themselves to a chair in a storefront in some strip mall in a district they represent and tele-communicate, video-communicate, tweet, email, text, phone, telex, telegraph, mail or send smoke signals (encoded of course) and be much more effective than they have demonstrated for the past couple of decades. With a lot fewer distractions, politicians might actually be able to get some meaningful work done, especially when they have to look their voters in the eyes. After evaluating their need and their productivity, we may nd that Congress is not necessarily a full-time job and we can make additional cuts in the future. The savings to the people would be huge and it would be our version of a stimulus package whereby we stimulate some productivity on the part of Congress.

An answer to problems with political leadership


Editor, Dorothy Dimitre wrote a great column (Let them eat cake! in the Nov. 30 edition of the Daily Journal) on the terrible conditions for working people in our nation. She says, If there ever was a more egregious and telling example of the dysfunction of our Congress this is it! Dorothy is upset at the cuts in the school lunch program for our needy children; but this is only one example of the Congress not working in the interests of the 99 percent. Congress has lots of money for funding the endless wars, giving tons of money to the crooks on Wall Street and for tax cuts for the very wealthy. The rest of us get cuts in jobs, pensions, health care, education and our rights to peacefully gather and protest the actions of our government. Dorothy is upset and doesnt know what we can do. She says, correctly, that our legislators have no conscience, no integrity and no interest beyond pleasing their donors and getting re-elected. I think we must face the fact that Congress is terminally corrupt and we must not vote tor the re-election on anyone in Congress now. We must not send Dianne Feinstein,

Founded on what?
Editor, In his letter to the editor in the Nov. 30 edition of The Daily Journal, Bob Jordan claims that In God We Trust is a symbol that our country was founded upon, and that it has worked pretty well for a long time. Really? Among the Founding Fathers, there were both believers and non-believers, yet they clearly intended to keep the Constitution secular, with no reference to anything or anyone superior to We the People, and no symbol of trusting beyond the earthly. They were totally free to include anything they wanted, but obviously chose to keep the Constitution neutral, unbiased and a document for all, not a select group. We should respect that and not twist this ne document into something never intended. One of the reasons for a secular Constitution was to set the United States apart from the religion infested monarchies of Europe. Thats what has worked pretty well, not the divisive IGWT slogan some religious zealots cooked up later on.

High-speed rail or Tower of Babel?


Editor, In her column, Now is not the time to be short-sighted in the Nov. 14 edition of the Daily Journal, Sue Lempert compares high-speed rail to the Golden Gate Bridge and Hoover Dam. The Tower of Babel would be a more appropriate analogy. Sue says the project enhances the states economy and improves air quality by cutting down on airplane and automobile trips. I assume Sue is referring to job creation. The Watts Riots created jobs, but it was not a net plus for the economy. She says, If the state Legislature does not accept the business plan or does not vote to go ahead with the rst phase, the funds must be returned to Washington and are not available for local transportation projects. Ay, theres the rub. Why do we allow the federal government to take the money from our economy in the rst place, and then return it in much less proportion to what they have taken? Look to the Tea Party to restore states rights and the Libertarian

roposals to fix Californias broken finances and gridlocked governance have surfaced often in recent years. Most were quietly placed on a shelf where they gathered dust even as the state sank deeper into financial As usual, the Thanksgiving holiday shopping frenzy saw jammed parking lots, big crowds, huge bargains and merchants hoping for a very merry Christmas. So, shoppers hit stores; did they buy? Preliminary reports for Black Friday show they did as retail sales jumped 6.6 percent over last year to an estimated $11.4 billion, up nearly $1 billion over 2010, according to ShopperTrak, which keeps tabs on consumers at malls and stores. This is the largest year-overyear gain in ShopperTraks national retail sales estimate for Black Friday since the 8.3 percent increase we saw between 2007 and 2006, said ShopperTrak founder Bill Martin. Still, its just one day. It remains to be seen whether consumers will sustain this behavior through the holiday shopping season. A partial answer came Monday (known as Cyber Monday in the retail world) as online sales rose 33 percent from 2010, with shoppers spending on average $198.26. Its expected, once all the Monday receipts are tallied, that online shoppers spent some $1.2 billion. Clearly, after years of scrimping and worrying about the economy, shoppers who swarmed the stores over the holiday weekend showed a growing optimism about the economy. Retailers also changed strategies this year to adjust to the whims of shoppers. A number of merchants in Ventura County and across the country pushed the traditional Friday shopping day up to Thursday, a day previously given to feasts, football and family. Many stores opened their doors to shoppers as early as 9 p.m. Thanksgiving Day. Such shifts in merchandising occur because of shifts in buying habits. A number of retailers said they were only responding to customers who indicated they had an appetite for shopping on Thanksgiving Day. Of course, the holidays are not only about battling the crowds to find that perfect gift. Local charities, just like the merchants, count heavily on the giving spirit during the holidays. This is the time of year many charities raise the majority of the funds that not only see the nonprofits through the holiday season, but also support their yearround programs. So, while you are out there hunting for that one-of-a-kind gift for those on your list, remember theres no better way to show your holiday spirit than to share with others less fortunate.

Wall Street wavers

Wall Street
Brothers collapsed. Another rise in applications for weekly unemployment benets dampened the mood Thursday. The Labor Department said initial applications rose to 402,000 last week, the second weekly increase in a row. The gures didnt change expectations for the governments monthly labor report, which comes out Friday. Economists forecast that the unemployment rate will remain at 9 percent. The S&P 500 index slipped 2.37, or 0.2 percent, to 1,244.59. The Nasdaq inched up 5.86, or 0.2 percent, to 2,626. Investors often turn cautious following giant leaps, said Sam Stovall, chief equity strategist at S&P Capital IQ. The Dow shot up 813 points in the rst three days of the week as fears ebbed that Europes debt crisis would turn into a global panic. Another trigger for the rally that started Monday was news that a record number of shoppers went to stores over the Thanksgiving weekend. Its almost like rooting for a football team that won by a very big score, Stovall said. The next day, people are likely wondering whether the big victory was a one-off event or the start of a lasting trend.

NEW YORK A rally that drove major stock indexes up 7 percent this week stalled Thursday. Stock indexes ended slightly lower, a day after the market posted its biggest gain in two and a half years. Goldman Sachs and other banks, the previous days star-performers, gave up some of their gains. Costco, Nordstrom and other retailers rose after reporting stronger sales for November. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 25.65 points, or 0.2 percent, to close at 12,020.03. Travelers Cos. Inc. lost 2.2 percent, the biggest drop of the Dows 30 stocks. Boeing Co. had the biggest gain, 3.3 percent. The Dow soared 490 points Wednesday, its seventh-best gain on record, on news that central banks around the world slashed borrowing costs for banks in order to shore up the European nancial system and prevent the regions debt crisis from getting worse.

Economy improving,job growth weak


By Christopher S. Rugaber
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Factories are producing more. Construction is growing. People are buying more cars. The holiday shopping season is off to a strong start. Normally, all that would suggest a bright outlook for the economy. Problem is, employers still arent hiring much, the number of people seeking unemployment benets remains high and Europes debt crisis poses a grave threat to the future. Thursdays mixed economic picture came a day before the government will

report on unemployment and job growth for November. That report is expected to show a modest net gain of 125,000 jobs, scarcely enough to keep up with population growth. The unemployment rate is projected to remain 9 percent. Analysts say the economy remains locked in a good-but-hardly-good-enough position: Its growing consistently, yet too weakly to induce employers to hire aggressively. The economy is picking up momentum as we close out 2011, said Neil Dutta, an economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. At the same time, it faces an ongoing u in Europe and other chal-

lenges, such as uncertainty about future taxes and spending in the United States, Dutta said. For now, factories are expanding. The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing managers, says its manufacturing index rose to 52.7 in November, up from 50.8 in October. Any reading above 50 indicates expansion. Factories have grown for 28 straight months. Manufacturers are slightly more hopeful about the next few months because of cheaper raw materials and healthy demand, said Bradley Holcomb, head of the ISMs survey committee.

SAN FRANCISCO YouTube has reprogrammed its website to make it easier for viewers to nd and watch their favorite channels. The facelift, unveiled Thursday, is the latest step in YouTubes attempt to make the Internets most popular video site as easy to navigate and as compelling to watch as cable TV. In the process, YouTube owner Google Inc. hopes to make money selling ads. As part of the redesign, YouTube is replacing its staid white background with a touch of gray. The changes are part of the biggest renovation that YouTube has undertaken since Google bought the site for $1.76 billion ve years ago. Although Google has been steadily adding more frills to YouTube since that acquisition, the videos on the site often were stitched in a crazy quilt that often required visitors to do a lot of searching to nd what they wanted.

Smith said it is a cash-and-stock deal, though precise terms are not being disclosed. Neither side really sees it as an exit, but more of an opportunity to scale faster, he said. The companies have 27 million customers combined, 8.5 million of which come from Khush. A total of 350 million pieces of music have been created between them.

Panthers fall short in rematch of CCS final


By Nathan Mollat
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

After losing to Willow Glen in the Central Coast Section Division II championship game last season, Burlingame boys soccer coach Mike Sharabi couldnt wait to face the Rams again. He set up a rematch with Willow Glen and that showdown came Thursday night in Burlingame. While there are different faces on both teams and its a new season, the result

was the same: Willow Glen beat the Panthers 2-1. It was a well-played game, Sharabi said. We knew what we were going to get. What Burlingame (1-1 overall) got was a well-disciplined, fast, technically-sound squad in Willow Glen. All were on display as the Rams scored once early and once late to take a 2-0 lead with about ve minutes to play. Burlingame got a goal back when Tim Lutvieyv converted a penalty kick after Jonah Snyder was taken down in the Willow Glen

penalty box. It would be as close as the Panthers would get as they had numerous rst-half opportunities go by the wayside. We had a lot of chances, Sharabi said. Willow Glen took a 1-0 lead just seven minutes into the game as the Rams worked a giveand-go at the top of the penalty. Burlingame claimed the Rams striker handled the ball on the return pass, but the referee didnt see it and Willow Glen converted. From there, however, Burlingame steadily

turned the momentum in its favor and went on the dominate the nal 25 minutes of the rst half. The Panthers earned a number of free kicks and Burlingame sweeper Mark Lopez was dangerous in taking them, but the Panthers just could not get onto the end of one of his crosses. Burlingame nished the rst half with eight shots, but only three were on goal. Willow Glen appeared to take a 2-0 lead on

Menlos Ball wins national honor


By Julio Lara
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The list of great football players who have donned a Serra Padres uniform is long, proud and distinguished. Lynn Swann, John Caselli, David Taufoou, Jason Hardee, Tom Brady, Cody Jackson, DeLeon Eskridge; the name-dropping can go on and on. And yet, for all the luster that accompanies the rich history of the Serra Padres, the 2011 team has the opportunity on Saturday afternoon to do something none of those players did win a Central Coast Section title. Only once in their schools history have the Padres won a section title and that was back in 1990 the players on the current roster were probably still afterthoughts. Their head coach Patrick Walsh was two years away from graduating high school. So yes, Saturdays Division I nal against Menlo-Atherton is a pretty big deal. It goes back many, many years, Walsh said. Weve been playing football here for a long time. Just last week, we solidied our rst 10-win season in school history. So, just the ability to build on the teams success and really take Serra football to another level is what this group is trying to do. With the ability to add the schools second CCS title, and the rst in 20 years, its something that cant go unnoticed for this group of kids and the Serra community. In that game 20 years ago, the Padres defeated Saratoga 28-7. It was a game highlighted by the play of fullback Troy Dooley, who scored two touchdowns in the win. Saturdays matchup against M-A will be the rst ever between the Peninsula opponents and it has the entire Serra community buzzing with anticipation. But Walsh said the boys in blue are trying to keep everything even keel. I think theyre just internalizing the whole thing, Walsh said. I think thats a mature thing to do. We respect and love all of our alumni and everyone who has played here before us, but this is their time now. They cant get lost in what happened during other

Menlos Andrew Ball is one of the countys top tennis players. Hes also one of its most honorable athletes. Menlo High School announced Thursday that Ball has won the United States Tennis Associations Bill Talbert Junior Sportsmanship Award for his honorable tournament play during the season. Chosen among all junior players nationwide, Ball is one of four winners who will be honored in a July ceremony during the International Hall of Fame weekend in Rhode Island. I was just super excited, Ball said when he heard he won the honor. I knew that I had been nominated to represent Northern California. I dont really know why they chose me. I was denitely a little shocked and surprised. Ball is being a bit modest. The Bill Talbert Junior Sportsmanship Award is presented annually by the Board of Directors of the International Tennis Hall of Fame, the award honors four recipients who are selected from the 17 sectional nominations of the USTA awards committee. Each winner is a junior player who exemplies the nest qualities of sportsmanship in tournament play, as well as one who maintains the nest traditions of the great sportsmen/women of tennis, past and present. Tennis is a game where you really need to be honest, Ball said. You have to be fair to your opponent. A lot of the times there isnt a ref on the court, so you need to make call for yourself. Theres denitely a lot cheating that goes on in tennis and people get away with it. But I guess although there is so much competitiveness, the heat of the moment, you want to call shots out because you can get a huge point if you do, Ball said, adding that to him, having his opponent see him in a respectable light is more important that gaining an unfair advantage. Im playing Andrew, hes a nice guy, were going to have a fair match, he said. Andrew is a fierce competitor, yet at

Mills cant hang with Mercy-San Francisco


By Nathan Mollat
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Mills girls basketball coach Dave Matsu wasted little time before throwing his team into the re. In just the second game of the season, the Vikings hosted Central Coast Section Division V power Mercy-San Francisco in the annual Kelly Shea Gallo Shootout Thursday night. The Vikings acquitted themselves well they showed no fear and were not intimidated by the Skippers. In the end, however, Mercy-SF was just a

little bit superior in every facet of the game, as the Skippers beat Mills 51-36. Theyre a good team, Matsu said of Mercy. They get after you. Mills (1-1) played Mercy even for the rst quarter-and-a-half before the Skippers turned up the defensive intensity. Mills tried to match Mercys in the energy department, but it was a pace that was a bit too much for the Vikings. The quickened pace caused Mills to be a little more sloppy than usual, as the Vikings committed 19 turnovers. Against a team like Mercy, thats deadly. Add in the fact the Skippers were bigger and

more physical up front and it added up to a 15-point loss to Mercy. Offensively, we dont match up, Matsu said. They all want to shoot the ball. Thats what we need to still in our kids. The Vikings had no answer defensively for Mercys Courtney Sabahi and Nia Ilalio, who dominated in the post. The pair combined for 22 points and 18 rebounds. They rebound like men, Matsu said. It makes our girls have to play more aggressive. The domination was particularly acute in the rst half. The Vikings couldnt stop the entry pass into the post and once Sabahi or

Ilalio got the ball, they were seldom denied. Thats why we talked about ball pressure on the perimeter, Matsu said. Try to make that entry pass as tough as possible. Mercy was just as effective at rebounding as the Skippers dominated the boards 19-8 in the rst half. (The lack of rebounding) is on me as a coach, Matsu said. We have to spend more time on team rebounding. We talked (at halftime) about having ve girls rebounding. The Vikings apparently listened to their

49ers offensive line looks to regroup


By Janie McCauley
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SANTA CLARA Joe Staley understands if people take shots at San Franciscos offensive line and turn on the unit again. That comes with the territory after his group allowed a season-high nine sacks in a loss at Baltimore last week. The O-line had made such big strides after its early struggles. But against the Ravens, these guys got beat on protection calls and were repeatedly outmuscled. Coach Jim Harbaugh acknowledged there also were a handful of situations when quarterback Alex Smith held onto the ball too long. Thats just the way football is its always the offensive lines fault. It was. We didnt play well, said Staley, the left tackle and leader of the line. Weve got to do a lot better job just on overall execution. Its not something where all of a sudden we think we (stink) or anything. It was a down game and we didnt

play very well. We know that. Staley, center J o n a t h a n Goodwin and right tackle Anthony Davis believe San Francisco will get right back Joe Staley on track this Sunday against St. Louis, needing just a few minor tweaks on technique to avoid the problems the Niners endured against the punishing Ravens defense. Were not in panic mode or anything, Staley said. Smith was sacked 14 times in a three-game span from Weeks 2 to 4, then only seven times over the next six games before being pounded nine times by the Ravens. Smith shared some of the blame for how things went. It was kind of all the way around. Denitely a couple calls I could have changed and helped us out up front denitely put us in

some tough situations, the guys up front, he said. Something we take a lot of pride in is when we get pressure, really beating it and making teams pay. I really felt like they were setting the tone on us last Thursday. Right guard Adam Snyder is nursing an injured left hamstring and his status is uncertain because Harbaugh has declined to offer an update based on not wanting to tip off the Rams (2-9). Chilo Rachal played in Snyders place for most of the Thanksgiving night loss to the Ravens and Harbaughs big brother, John. The linemen know they must adjust no matter who takes the eld Sunday at Candlestick Park. We just need to make the corrections and go to work every day this week and plan on getting better, said Davis, a rst-round draft pick last season who started every game as a rookie. Theyre simple tweaks, but weve just got to do them. Offensive coordinator Greg Roman said Thursday hes still

hopeful of having Snyder available to start Sunday, when San Francisco can clinch its rst NFC West crown and playoff berth since 2002. Goodwin, the 49ers veteran center in his first season with San Francisco, knows how quickly things can turn in this league. He won his rst 14 games with the eventual Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints two years ago before they lost their nal three heading into the playoffs. Of course its discouraging to have a bad game, but it happens, Goodwin said. The key now is to realize what things went wrong and not let it happen again. Ive still got a lot of condence in this group. In some ways its still kind of a young group. Im sure well as a unit learn from the mistakes and improve and solve the problems. Roman took accountability for the problems on the line against Baltimore noting the short week didnt help the cause. San Francisco beat Arizona on Nov. 20 then played four days later across the country.

Im not going to make any excuses, Roman said. You either block them or you dont. You either catch the ball or you dont. We didnt block them and we didnt get it done. It was really an overall issue. You never really can say its just one thing. Its a variety of things and it starts with me. ... The four-day week probably brought that to light more so than at any other time. I think were settling into a good rhythm on a seven-day week of preparation. A four-day week that changes everything. Roman is committed to better preparing the 49ers front ve on short notice. Theres plenty of motivation this week. The 27-year-old Staley cant wait to go to the playoffs for the rst time in his ve-year career. Win, were in, Staley said. Personally, this is the rst time where were in total control of our destiny. I look forward to that.

Raiders McClain arrested for assault


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DECATUR, Ala. Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain was arrested Thursday on misdemeanor assault, rearms and other charges after police said he red a gun during a ght in his Alabama hometown. McClain, 22, held a gun beside a mans head during an altercation and the man begged him not to shoot, according to a statement released by Lt. John Crouch of the Decatur Police Department. McClain, an All American at Alabama during his junior year, moved the gun but red a round beside the mans ear, according to the statement. No one was shot, but police said a man who was injured in the altercation drove himself to a hospital, where he was treated and released. McClain was released on $2,000 bond. He faces charges of assault, menacing, reckless endangerment and ring a gun inside the city limits. Another man identified as Jerradius Willingham, 23, was

charged with assault and released after posting a $500 bond. M c C l a i n s attorney Billy C. Burney II said the linebacker denies he red a Rolando gun and said he McClain was not involved in the ght. Mr. McClain asserts his innocence, Burney said in a statement. We are condent that Mr. McClain will be cleared of all charges. The Raiders had no comment. McClains agent, Pat Dye Jr., did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment Raiders coach Hue Jackson said McClain was in Alabama for the funeral of his grandfather. Speaking before the arrest, he said McClain would play Sunday at Miami as far as I know. I can tell you we understand and know exactly whats going on, and we feel very comfortable with our

information and we dont have any further comment at this time, Jackson said. McClain is the Raiders secondleading tackler this season after joining the team as the eighth overall pick in 2010. Although he struggled as a rookie, the 6-foot-3-inch, 255-pounder had developed into a centerpiece of Oaklands defense this season despite being slowed by a sore left ankle. Earlier this year McClain, the 2009 Butkus Award winner at Alabama, reported someone in Decatur shooting at his vehicle. There wasnt any indication whether the two incidents were related. Police said the victim, whose name was not released, suffered injuries to his head and face during a ght with Willingham. He was bleeding when officers talked to him. The victim told ofcers that following the ght, he crawled to his car, the police statement said. He said that when he reached his car, Rolando McClain produced a pistol

and aimed it at him. He said that while he was still on the ground, McClain walked over to him and put the gun to his head. Police said the victim told ofcers he begged McClain not to shoot him and that McClain took the gun away from his head, held it next to his ear and red it. McClain was facing legal problems in Alabama before his arrest. A University of Alabama student sued McClain in November 2010 claiming the former Crimson Tide star hit him with a car and assaulted him in 2008. Stanford Matthew Mangham led suit in circuit court in Morgan County, where Decatur is located. Mangham claims McClain intentionally hit him twice at an intersection on Nov. 13, 2008 and then slung Mangham to the ground, causing permanent injuries. He is seeking $75,000 plus punitive damages. McClains attorneys led documents in court denying the students claims. That case is set for trial June 5.

McClains ankle injury forced him to miss the Raiders 38-24 loss to Denver on Nov. 6 when the Broncos ran for 299 yards, 118 from quarterback Tim Tebow. McClain reinjured his ankle on the rst play of the second half in last weeks 2520 win over Chicago but came back later to nish the game. Since McClains return, Oakland has won three straight to take a onegame lead in the AFC West heading into Sundays game at Miami. Raiders veteran running back Rock Cartwright said he intends to talk to McClain about his situation whenever the linebacker returns to the team. All you can do is tell them things, try to give them help, but if they dont want to be helped, then they wont be helped, Cartwright said. Once he gets back, Ill try to put a bug in his ear and see whats going on. McClain signed a $40 million, ve-year contract that included $23 million in guarantees with the Raiders on July 28, 2010.

Warriors ready to improve roster


By Antonio Gonzalez
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND New Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson started to explain his plan for a shortened training camp when general manager Larry Rileys phone rang. I hope thats a couple of free agents, Jackson joked. Riley laughed, placed the phone back in his coat pocket and whispered that it wasnt easy to ignore the call. The two nished talking with reporters and, before they could return to the basketball operations ofces, the phone started ringing again. Welcome back. All of the other things to building a great franchise have taken place, but we havent been able to do much with basketball, Riley said. So now, so to speak, its time to go. While the reconstructed Warriors management returned to Oracle Arena on Thursday, most players are not expected at the teams practice facility in downtown Oakland now open again until next week.

Preparations for their return are already under way. Riley has been busy fielding calls about potential moves. New assistant general manager Larry Riley and eventual successor Bob Myers took a ight to Los Angeles to talk to agents at his old stomping grounds at the Wasserman Media Group and new executive board member Jerry West stayed in contact with everybody. Just dont expect any major changes anytime soon. Although trade talk has surrounded leading scorer Monta Ellis for years, breaking up the point guard tandem with Stephen Curry still seems an unlikely possibility at the moment. Riley said he will do his due diligence exploring possibilities with the roster but doesnt anticipate a major overhaul before the season begins Dec. 25. Whats the likelihood the roster

will be near the same with some additions on opening day? Very likely, Riley said. The statement seemed to indicate Jackson will be working with the same incomplete roster as his predecessor, Keith Smart, ousted after one year as a ll-in coach under the new ownership group headed by Joe Lacob that has promised sweeping changes to the underachieving franchise. The Warriors have made the playoffs just once since 1994. About the only success the franchise has enjoyed is that long-suffering fans in the basketball-crazy Bay Area still regularly pack the arena and can be as vocal as any in a market saturated with sports teams. Ellis, Curry and forward David Lee are the core of a Golden State team that nished 36-46 last season, a 10game improvement from the previous year. While moving one of the three will likely be necessary for any overhaul, doing so under the rushed offseason free agency will be tough. In time, Riley believes bigger changes will come.

Now will tomorrow or next week show a lot of change? It could be, because we dont know exactly what were dealing with and what additions were making to the team, Riley said. But this organization has a lot of condence that our future is good. And Im not talking about 10 years from now. Were not talking about that. Were talking about shortterm future. Then he turned to Jackson and muttered, I hope you agree with that. Absolutely, Jackson replied. I wouldnt be sitting here. Somebody else would be sitting here. The rst-time head coach has his own obstacles to overcome. The only preaching Jackson could do all summer and fall is at his ministry in the Los Angeles area. He held meetings with his new coaching staff in Oakland and a boot-camp style one in Southern California one week to overload them with information. I think it wouldve been a nightmare if we didnt have basketball back, Jackson said. Training camps are scheduled to

open Dec. 9, under the parameters that a new collective bargaining agreement will be ratied in time. In the meantime, Jackson and his coaching staff are not permitted to have any contact with players who might be hanging around the facilities. Jackson is using the time wisely. He stopped by the San Francisco 49ers headquarters to speak with Jim Harbaugh this week and has another meeting in the works with Oakland Raiders coach Hue Jackson. The rst-year NFL head coaches have had remarkable success in turning around the two Bay Area football franchises, and they did so despite a work stoppage that shortened training camp. Jackson hopes to duplicate the success on the hardwood. The reason I wanted to do it is because of the great success both those guys have had in changing the culture. Great leaders. Theyve turned things around. Theyve made it the same things that I look forward to making this team, we, collective, buy in or youre out, having fun, Jackson said.

Lynch carries Seahawks to win over Eagles


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE Marshawn Lynch loves the prime-time stage, even if hes rarely given such a spotlight. But he wasnt about to accept any praise on a night when he certainly deserved it. It was all about the offensive line. We managed the game, we came out

victorious, everybodys happy, and now were on to our break, Lynch said during a very brief locker room appearance. Thank you. Seattles hard-charging running back bulled through Philadelphia for 148 yards and a pair of rst-half touchdowns, David Hawthorne returned the third of Vince Youngs four intercep-

tions 77 yards for a score, and the Seahawks rolled to a 31-14 victory Thursday that only added to the Eagles miserable season. Lynch ran into and escaped from a massive pileup for a 15-yard TD run in the rst quarter, then made a quick cut and went back against the ow for a 40yard scoring dash on the rst play of the

second quarter to give the Seahawks (57) a 14-0 lead. It was the second-best performance of Lynchs career and a capper to what has been his nest stretch as a pro. Lynch never had consecutive 100-yard rushing games until a few weeks ago. Now hes done it in four of Seattles past ve, and the only time he didnt,

Lynch had 88 yards in a victory over St. Louis. His rst-quarter, escape-act touchdown against Philadelphia (4-8) gave Lynch eight straight games with at least one score and added a highlight reminiscent of his famous tackle-breaking, 67-yard TD run in last years NFC playoffs against New Orleans.

Gerhart gets work with Peterson hurt

matches, he is always very gracious and makes good line calls, Menlo coach Bill Shine said in a press release. He plays the game the right way. Its well deserved, and its nice to see what hes been doing all the time is recognized. Hes got the whole program excited. The award is given in honor of 1967 Hall of Famer Bill Talbert, who was regarded for his high standards of sportsmanship.

Ball will receive his award during a July 14 ceremony and has been invited to many of the Hall of Fame events, including the induction ceremony, during which recent players and several major contributors to the game of tennis have been nominated, including Jennifer Capriati, one of Americas most dominant tennis players in the 1990s and early 2000s, Russias first world No. 1 Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Brazilian tennis superstar Gustavo Guga Kuerten and the late wheelchair star Randy Snow. Going to the Hall of Fame is pretty sick, Ball said. Im excited to be going out there. But to do that theyll have to get past a MenloAtherton team that has bounced back nicely after a 35-0 loss to Terra Nova four weeks ago that cost them the Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division title. The Bears return to the scene of the crime on Saturday with a chance to knock off one of the best teams the county has ever seen. Walsh said the Bears arent a team the Padres can afford to take lightly. I know coach Taufoou is a very proud football coach and has built a lot of belief systems down there at Menlo-Atherton, he said. They do a great haka, you can tell they really play together. They have two great running backs, they have a stingy defense and its not an arguable fact that theyre playing their best football right now. So, if we give anything short of our best performance, our best effort, well denitely be in a dog ght and be in a position to lose the game. Im really hoping that we stay focused and intent on our relationships, focused and intent on the growth of our team and play the best possible game we can against a very good M-A team on Saturday.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Toby Gerhart was used to being a workhorse running back from his days as a college star at Stanford. He wasnt playing behind Adrian Peterson then. With Peterson starting for the Minnesota Vikings, its been a quiet two seasons for Gerhart in the NFL. But Peterson suffered a high ankle sprain two weeks ago, giving Gerhart into a more featured role. Gerhart had just 24 carries in his rst 10 games of the season. But he started last weekend against the Falcons and had 17 carries for 44 yards and a touchdown. When he woke up on Monday morning, he felt a little sorer than hes used to feeling after a game day. He had a few more bumps and bruises, but it was a good kind of hurt. It felt OK, Gerhart said with a shrug and a grin. Some bumps and bruises, a little sore. But thats expected after playing a full NFL game. For the rst time all season, and really only the third time in his two-year career, the former Heisman Trophy nalist got the kind of workload he had in college. His production in the loss to the Falcons may have been on the modest side, but it was a welcome change

from the one- and two-carry days he had seen in most games. Gerhart set the Stanford school record for career attempts with 671 carries in just over three seasons and also has the school record with 44 rushing touchdowns. But hes spent the vast majority of his NFL career backing up Peterson, who is widely viewed as the best running back in the game. Peterson is such a focal point of the Vikings offense that coaches have been reluctant to pull him off the eld. And when they do, the carries are just as likely to go to versatile receiver Percy Harvin. The durable Peterson sustained the ankle sprain two weeks ago against Oakland and missed the Falcons game, putting Gerhart into the starting role. He had 22 carries for 76 yards and a touchdown in a win at Washington last year and 16 carries for 77 yards in a loss to Chicago, both when Peterson was out with injuries. Peterson has not practiced this week leading into the game Sunday against Denver, so Gerhart is gearing up for more action. I try to prepare every week like I am the guy, he said. Go out there and get ready. I dont know what Adrians status is. Until hes back out there running on the eld with us, Ill be preparing like Ill be the guy. Hes a key part of this team, Sharabi said of Shayan. Hes probably the best defensive midelder in the PAL. When hes not out there, we can be exposed. The Panthers were also missing center midelder Kody Wakasa, who is nishing up his commitment to his academy team. Without Shayan and Wakasa, there was plenty of room for the Willow Glen attackers to roam in the mideld. As such, the Panthers had a tough time stringing together passes and controlling possession with the bulk of their mideld missing. Burlingame took its shots in the second half, but many times the Panthers were a half step to quick as a number of offside calls thwarted promising attacks. Im just proud of the boys, Sharabi said. They didnt give up. the rebounding, Matsu said. We came out with good energy. In addition to her eight boards, Sui also had 11 points, with seven coming in the second half. The Vikings were led by Briana Suis 12 points. Kelly Chin added six. Despite the loss, Matsu was encouraged by his teams play, considering their relative lack of varsity experience. We have a fairly young team out there, Matsu said. Only three of nine girls played (varsity minutes) last year. We played six girls who did not have any varsity experience.

a goal early in the second half, but it was wiped away when the Rams were whistled for a foul before the goal. While the Panthers avoided the goal, they lost a key player in Sebastian Trevino, who was injured on the foul. He suffered what appears to be a deep bruise on his foot and while he should be ne for the long haul, the Panthers were without his services for the rest of the night. Burlingames chances also took a hit when defensive midelder Shayan Alimohammadzadehamin who Sharabi said is just trying to use his rst name this season, ala a Brazilian player had to be subbed out early in the second half because of a groin strain.

peoples time. This is a unique and special group of seniors that is intent on creating their own history. And theyve done that a few times this year. More than a few times actually this Serra team was the rst to beat rival St. Francis at Mountain View in 40 years. Theyre also the rst 10-win team in school history. The 2011 team will go down as the highest scoring team in school history (463 points, 59 touchdowns and counting) and anything above 153 yards against M-A will give them the most yards offensively by any Serra team. I believe they understand it, Walsh said of the historic magnitude of Saturdays game. And I think if history plays a part in it, theyll embrace it and not run from it. I think this group would be proud to see this program grow on their foundation.

Ryane Clowe tied the game with 1:26 left in regulation, and after a fast-paced overtime, the Sharks maintained their home dominance over the Canadiens in the shootout. San Jose has won six straight at home against Montreal, last losing 3-2 in overtime on Nov. 23, 1999. The Canadiens looked as though they would end that dry spell when Erik Cole gave them a 3-2 lead midway through the third. But after Clowe tied it, the Sharks pulled it out in the shootout. Marty Havlat beat Carey Price in the second round with a forehand before Brian Gionta kept it going in the third round when he stickhandled past Niemi. Michal Handzus and David Desharnais traded goals in the fourth round before both teams missed in the fth. Pavelski then beat Price with a forehand wrister before Niemi got his pad out just in time to stop Subbans backhand attempt. Logan Couture and Jamie McGinn scored and Niemi made 29 saves for the Sharks, who avoided matching a season-worst, three-game losing streak. Desharnais had a goal and two assists, and Cole and Michael Cammalleri each had a goal.

Civic Natural Gas available to more consumers


By Ann M. Job
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

2012 Honda Civic Natural Gas BASE PRICE: $26,155 for base model; $27,655 with navigation. PRICE AS TESTED:$28,425. TYPE:Front-engine,front-wheel-drive,vepassenger,compact sedan. ENGINE: 1.8-liter, single overhead cam,

compressed natural gas four-cylinder engine with i-VTEC. MILEAGE:27 mpg (city),38 mpg (highway) gasoline-gallon equivalent.

TOP SPEED:NA. LENGTH: 177.3 inches. WHEELBASE:106.3 inches. CURB WEIGHT:2,855 pounds. BUILT AT:Greensburg,Ind. OPTIONS:None. DESTINATION CHARGE: $770.

Thirteen years after launching its natural gas-powered Civic as a low-emission, lowfuel-price vehicle for public utilities and other business eets, Honda is expanding availability to more consumers than ever. For the rst time, car shoppers in 30-plus states should nd natural gas-powered Civics sitting on lots at select Honda dealerships. Key benets for buyers: Natural gas prices can be 35 percent less than gasoline and the car qualifies for high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane usage in many states, including those who have failed to provide or recently rescinded HOV access to gas-electric hybrids. A big drawback: Finding a convenient place to ll up when youre away from home. Named the 2012 Green Car of the Year by the California-based Green Car Journal, the 2012 Civic Natural Gas sedan looks like a regular Civic. The words Natural Gas on the trunk lid are all that visually differentiate it on the outside. Formerly called the Civic GX, the Civic Natural Gas sounds and drives like a regular Civic, though theres less torque available from the four-cylinder engine than there is in other Civic sedans. The 2012 Civic Natural Gas also cant be had with a manual transmission, leather seats or sunroof. But with a starting manufacturers suggested retail price, including destination charge, of $26,925, the 2012 Civic Natural Gas has the highest starting retail price of any 2012 Civic model.

sumers have to do what I did on my test drive, which is nd places to gas up. And that used up precious time one busy workday morning, because even in environmentally inclined California, it may not be easy to nd natural gas to put into a consumer car. The test car rode like other Civics. I felt road bumps nearly all the time, and the interior, while roomy, was not wellinsulated against outside noises. As in other 2012 Civics, there is a futuristic feel behind the wheel. Its primarily because big digital speedometer numbers and other typical car gauge data are clustered in a long, raised screen atop the dashboard in front of the driver. But seat cushions in the tester felt a bit cheap, and hard, gray plastic dominated inside. In the test car, the hard plastic trim next to the drivers side window on the inside of the door would groan when I put my elbow or any pressure there. Rear brakes are the less expensive drums, not discs like they are in the Civic Hybrid. Trunk space is compromised by the 3,600-psi natural gas tank that sits behind the rear seatbacks, which do not fold

down. A trunk in a gasoline-only Civic sedan measures 12.5 cubic feet. Theres 10.7 cubic feet in a Civic Hybrid trunk and just 6.1 in the natural gas model. The 1.8-liter, single overhead cam four cylinder sounded strained when I pressed hard for sudden acceleration. The engine, which is a modied version of whats in other Civics, develops the same 110 horsepower as the Civic Hybrid. But torque peaks at just 106 foot-pounds at a 4,300 rpm vs. the 127 foot-pounds at a low 1,000 rpm in the Civic Hybrid. Hondas big news is the navigation system in the upper trim level Civic Natural Gas model provides directions to places where consumers can gas up. But the rst place my nav system sent me, which was tucked off a cul de sac amid junkyards and sandblasting businesses near Sacramento, had no natural gas pump. It was a transportation ofce of a local school district, and the woman there told me they had gotten rid of all 18 natural gas-powered school buses long before, and the pump had been removed a year ago. Somehow, though, this site was programmed into the Civics database.

Continued from page 17
Indeed, the starting price for a base, 2012 Civic Hybrid, which has a gasolinepowered four cylinder supplemented by an electric motor and which has a higher government fuel economy rating than the natural gas-powered Civic, is $24,820. A base, 2012 Civic sedan without hybrid or natural gas-using powerplant has a starting MSRP, including destination charge, of $16,575. Honda is the only mass-market automaker producing a natural-gas car on a factory assembly line, though other carmakers, including Ford, have long offered natural gas vehicles to business eets. A consumer should consider installing a natural gas dispenser at his/her home when buying a Civic Natural Gas. A home refueling station, which is powered by electricity, has a compressor that converts your home supply to the Civicrequired pounds per square inch (psi). Without a home refueling station, con-

Chilly November? Not for U.S. car sales
DETROIT People are nally replacing the cars and trucks they held on to during the economic slump, giving a big boost to U.S. auto sales in November. Chrysler, Ford, Nissan and Hyundai were among the companies reporting double-digit gains from last November, which is normally a lackluster month because of colder weather and holiday distractions. This November, buyers were lured by good deals, improving condence in the economy and the need to trade in older cars. Consumers are just starting to say its time to start spending money again, says Larry Dominique, executive vice president of data for the TrueCar.com automotive website.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Nintendo itself seems ready to move on to its forthcoming Wii U. LOS ANGELES Link is getting a So The Legend of Zelda: Skyward workout. Sword ($49.99) looks like the last Unlike the button-mashing pursuits gasp for the once unstoppable Wii. in previous installments of the popIs it worth dusting off and ular Nintendo Co. franchise, plugging in your old Legend of Zelda: Skyward machine to play it? Sword is asking players to Absolutely although ick their wrists, wave its not quite the masterpiece their arms and Nintendo has been promising. The core elements of the 25-yearold Zelda franchise remain. Once again, you are Link, a teenager whos destined for great things. As usual, your friend Zelda disappears and you must run to her rescue. Your journey takes you through a series of fantastic locations including, most notably, a series of dungeons lled with brain-twisting puzzles. Still, there are plenty of tweaks to the formula. Skyward Sword begins in Skyloft, a tiny town oating high above the clouds. Each character is master of a loftwing, a bird you can y to the other rocks floating around Skyloft. While out on a joyride, Zelda is attacked by a tornado and dragged to the land below, where most of the action takes place. There are three major areas to explore: the grassy Faron Woods, the ery Eldin Volcano and the desolate Lanayru Desert. Each is populated with a healthy variety of native creatures, some helpful, some vicious. Theres plenty of sword-swinging combat, but thats not the emphasis the real challenge is guring out how to get through the mazelike environments to their central temples.

While the Wii iteration of the previous Zelda console game, Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, included some simplistic motion controls ve years ago, Skyward Sword is pushing the physicality further by employing the more precise Wii MotionPlus technology to serve as such weapons and tools as Links sword, bug-catching net, harp and slingshot. Its going to feel like a brand new experience for everyone, regardless of their experience with the series, and I hope that theyll all enjoy it very much, said Japanese game producer Eiji Aonuma, who has worked on the 25-year-old Zelda franchise for the past 14 years. He spoke through a translator during a recent interview in Los Angeles. Aonuma compared the motion control of Skyward Sword, out Nov. 20, to the threedimensional graphics of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which revolutionized the series when it was released for the Nintendo 64 console in 1998 by transforming the mythical land of Hyrule from a mysterious maze-like 2-D labyrinth into a fantastical 3-D realm. In Skyward Sword, Link descends from a oating city to such locales as a dense forest, mammoth volcano and sprawling desert in search of Zelda, while encountering mind-bending puzzles, well-armored baddies and time-ipping crystals along the way. Instead of a horse or a train, Link has a giant crimson bird to help him get around this time. Aonuma said the more physical take on Zelda

Kinects kid games ruling the holidays

Microsoft and some third-party companies rolled out some nifty titles in 2011, with a few new ones for the holidays that will test your wits and stamina as you lunge around the living room, angling for high scores. Heres a look at some featured Kinect-friendly titles as the year wraps up.

Dance Central 2 (Microsoft Studios, $49.99, rated T)


More dance and more songs are on tap for this standout sequel. As with the original title, the goal remains to keep up with the crew of eet-footed characters on the screen while you bust a move to popular hip-hop and electronica songs. The dance moves are fun even if some of them like the bear cub are best left to an embarrassing uncle at a wedding. Truly, its an awful lot of hand-waving and arms akimbo. Some of the new features include the ability to create your own playlist from the provided songs as well as top-notch voice commands that allow you, among other things, to slow down the music if youre having problems nailing some tough dance moves. Three out of four stars.

The Gunstringer (Microsoft Studios, $39.99, rated T)


In this fairly strange game, you play as the operator of a marionette skeleton that also happens to be one of the fastest guns in the Old West. You hoist up the Gunstringer by the strings and walk him around with movements

Regis: Been too busy to miss show with Kelly


NORWOOD, Ohio Regis Philbin says hes been too busy to miss the live weekday TV show he left nearly two weeks ago, though he is already thinking about a return to television. The 80-year-old entertainer said at a suburban Cincinnati book-signing on Wednesday that he hasnt had time to think about the old program with Kelly Ripa because of his book tour.

But this years event posed a unique challenge: How to make Revelations, that crown jewel in the Ailey repertoire, shine even brighter, to mark the ascendance of new artistic director Robert Battle and the dawn of the post-Judith Jamison era?

Cookie-wine pairings add zip to afternoon tea


By Michelle Locke
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Cookies and tea are nice, but cookies and wine can be ne. Thats something Leah Kuo and Laura Englander, co-owners of Cookies & Corks found out a few years ago. The pair already had turned their culinary and marketing smarts into a business selling gourmet cookies direct-toconsumers and through local merchants. Then, Englander got a new idea after delivering cookies to a Falls Church, Va., wine shop that was carrying their goodies. A wine tasting was going on and she was struck by a thought How about pairing cookies with wine? So, she and Kuo sat down and wrote out a business plan, got busy with recipes and enlisted the expertise of wine columnist Amy Reiley. The result is a line of gourmet and savory cookies intended specically to pair with wine. It was fun to come up with these formulas from a cookie standpoint, says Kuo. For instance, bakers usually use table salt which dissolves well and doesnt leave a distinct taste behind. But for wine pairings a salty nish can be an asset, so Kuo started using kosher salt, with its larger grains and bigger taste wallop. Then when you pair with wine, a buttery chardonnay, say, or cabernet franc or even a zinfandel, it really is a great pairing. Looking for some holiday inspired pairings of your own?

The fun part is when I put this cookie in front of people.Theyre always surprised to take the zesty lemon cookie and pair it with a merlot or a light pinot noir.Acidic red wines like those red wines are very complementary with this acidic lemon cookie.
Laura Englander,co-owner of Cookies & Corks

Pamela Heiligenthal, co-founder and editor of Enobytes.com, suggests matching gingerbread with riesling or gewurztraminer, two aromatic white wines. The spiciness of the cookie brings out the honey and peach notes of a riesling, she says. Try it with a gewurztraminer to accentuate the spiciness of the cookie. The holidays also are a good time to pull out the bubbly, and shortbread is a good match for a sparkling wine or blanc de blanc Champagne (sparkling wine from Frances Champagne region made from chardonnay grapes). The light and dry avors of the bubbles cut through the rm, crumbly buttery goodness of the cookie, says Heiligenthal. Another traditional favorite, lace cookies, can be paired with late-harvest riesling, with the wines delicate avors complementing the delicate crispness of the buttery cookies. Sherry is another stand-by for sweet pairings. Liz Mendez, co-owner of Vera Chicago, a wine bar featuring Spanish cuisine in Chicago, suggests going with an amontillado-style sherry when serving cookies. This kind of sherry is in

between dry and sweet, so it makes a nice contrast with desserts without overpowering them. Amontillado sherry also typically has a nutty avor which goes well with rich treats. Some suggested pairings from Kuo and Englander include their espresso chocolate peanut butter cookie and a zesty lemon cookie with prosecco. The zesty lemon, lightly tart and sweet, is a versatile player, says Englander. The fun part is when I put this cookie in front of people. Theyre always surprised to take the zesty lemon cookie and pair it with a merlot or a light pinot noir. Acidic red wines like those red wines are very complementary with this acidic lemon cookie. Kuo also likes the idea of using cookie-and-wine pairings as a way to get people thinking about mixing and matching avors. It was so interesting to think of this as more than just a fun way to entertain, which it is, but also a way to educate people in an accessible manner on how to do food and wine pairings. Cookies and wine not the most conventional pairing, but it just may turn out to be your cup of tea.

MUSEUM GOTTA SEE UM


By Susan Cohn
DAILY JOURNAL SENIOR CORRESPONDENT

AN ARTISTS BRIEF LIFE. California artist Rex Slinkard (18871918) died in the influenza epidemic of 1918 while serving in the military. The Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University, the primary repository of his work, presents The Legend of Rex Slinkard, an exhibition of more than 60 oil paintings, charcoal drawings and pen-andwatercolor sketches that convey the breadth and strength of Slinkards short-lived artistic development. Slinkard, born in Indiana, studied at Judson Art School and at the College of Fine Arts of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. In 1908, Slinkard won a scholarship that allowed him to continue his studies in New York City, where he established personal contacts with well-known people in the worlds of visual and literary arts. He studied with Robert Henri and roomed with fellow artist George Bellows (1882-1925), with whom he shared a common interest in boxing. Bellows would become famous for his paintings of the sport and Slinkards portrait is often included amongst the audience featured in these paintings. The exhibition includes an oil portrait by Bellows of Slinkard, entitled Portrait of Rex (c. 1915), on loan from a private collection. Patience Young, curator for education at the Cantor Arts Center, said, These contacts [with Henri, Bellows and others] have recently come to light with new scholarship undertaken by Geneva Gano, who spent a post-doctorate year teaching at Stanford, and her research prompted the Center to publish and make more widely known the works of this enigmatic modernist. The Slinkard collection came to Stanford in 1955 as a bequest from Florence A. Williams, the sister of Slinkards fiance, Gladys Whitney Williams. Until Genevas research this past decade, little has been known about the artist and his work in our collection. Slinkard returned to the West Coast from New York and financial necessity ultimately required him to relocate to his familys ranch near Saugus, in the hills north of Los Angeles. There, Slinkard lived a fairly isolated life and began painting his important independent works. His major painting, Young Rivers, on display at the Cantor, is a landscape based on irrigation ditches on the family ranch.

WEEKEND JOURNAL
hili dogs generally are considered summer food. Which makes sense. Hot dogs tossed in a bun and slathered with chili and shredded cheese does tend to scream summer casual (and heartburn, but thats another matter). But those flavors do go so nicely together, I wondered if there was a way to capture the spirit of the meal in a form better suited to fending off the chill of a winter night. In converting the recipe I saw no reason to mess around too much with the hot dog or chili topping. Why ruin with a good thing? So I instead focused on the starch. A bun just wasnt going to cut it. I considered pasta, but thats too close to Cincinnati chili (spaghetti topped with chili and cheese). Roasted potatoes were the right flavor, but wrong texture. Mashed, however, were just right. The resulting recipe oozes comfort and warmth. And since you dont have to worry about toppings spilling out of the bun, its also easier to load up on extras, such as sour cream and jalapeno peppers.

Disneyland Adventures (Microsoft Studios, $49.99, rated E10+)
In this title, the gamer uses Kinect as a gateway to the Magic Kingdom of the Disneyland amusement park in Southern California. Walking my childlike character around the park was a little clunky at rst. I raised my arm to move forward, but instead of following a sparkling golden path to my next task, I ended up plowing through crowds of families and getting stuck in a corner near a fence. This got better once I learned to slow my walking pace. The best part about this game is walking to attractions from memory. If youve been to Disneyland more than once, you know the Adventureland section is on the left side after grappling hook and slingshot. The most versatile of the new devices is the beetle, a ying drone that can pick up bombs and drop them on enemies. Skyward Sword is filled with aha! moments when you suddenly gure out how to use those devices to get past a seemingly insurmountable obstacle. Its an unusually rewarding game mechanic, emphasizing logic and strategy over reexes, and the devilish puzzles make this Zelda chapter well worth your time. With 60-plus hours of playtime, this is the features the ability to use a new touchscreen controller in tandem with a Wii Remote. Aonuma said the goal with Wii U is to continue to leverage the gameplay introduced with Skyward Sword, but to layer on top of that the functionality of the Wii U controller, which has a screen built into it. The hope, Aonuma continued, is to use that as some type of tool to allow players to further enhance the way they interact with you enter the grounds. And sure enough, I found it quickly. But the similarities ended once I boarded the Jungle Cruise ride. I had to use my arms to control a water cannon and fend off legions of raging hippos. This is a pretty good game for the young and young at heart if youve visited the park. Three out of four stars.

The Gunstringer battles various comical foes, including a wavy inflatable tube character that would seem more at home in front of a used Ford dealership. I had to lean the skeleton out from side to side carefully to avoid getting whacked on the head by one of the wavy mans long arms. Its mild fun at best. Kudos to the developers at Twisted Pixel Games for their unconventional take on player controls and offering gamers lighter gunfire fare rather than a scaled back, Kinect-friendly Call of Duty knockoff.

Deepak Chopras Leela (THQ, $49.99, rated E)


Putting your spiritual and physical well-being in the hands of someone like Deepak Chopra is a good bet. But its probably tough to book an appointment with him, which is where Deepak Chopras Leela comes in handy. This is the most soothing video game Ive ever played. After custom-crafting my own mandala longest game in the Zelda franchise, but not all of it is as rewarding as the dungeon sequences. It takes several hours before Link nally gets to the surface, where almost all the action is. In between dungeons you have to keep returning to Skyloft, home to a bunch of dimwits who send you on tedious fetch quests while youre trying to prevent the apocalypse. Theres an awful lot to do in Skyward Sword, but about one-third of it feels like ller. The boss battles against the most powerful monsters range, similarly, from boring to spectacular. The bad ones essentially involve the Zelda world. A non-interactive, high-denition clip of Link encountering a giant spider was used at E3 to demonstrate some of the Wii U controllers capabilities, such as changing camera angles, toggling lighting schemes and switching the view between the touchscreen and TV display, but it was billed strictly as a demonstration, not a preview of a future Zelda title.

design (with gestures from my hands), I took part in a hip-swiveling session in which I controlled an image of the rotating Earth. The goal was to align growing trees with moving rain clouds and later to the sun. This was a good warm-up exercise in the games Muladhara, or Root Chakra, section. The goal of the game is to help the user align the seven chakras; spinning wheels of energy in the body if you believe in such things. I had the option to Play or Reect. During Play, I moved my body to engage with Leela, a Sanskrit word meaning the play of the universe, according to the game instructions. During Reect, I took a seat on the oor while Leela led me through breathing and meditation exercises. The imagery is beautiful and the background music is calming. I found this game both physically and mentally rewarding. These types of wellness titles truly take advantage of Kinects capabilities and when well-designed, as with Leela, showcase what gaming can become. Four out of four stars. slashing at the enemy until he surrenders, but the good ones make imaginative use of the skills Link has learned. One sequence, which involves rescuing a parasite-infested sky whale, is Zelda at its most exhilarating. Such moments go a long way toward reawakening the sense of wonder common to the best Nintendo games of the last quartercentury. And despite some dull stretches, Skyward Sword delivers enough of those moments to make it one of the most satisfying chapters in the Zelda canon. Three-and-ahalf stars out of four. Despite its expansive pedigree, Skyward Sword will face competition stiffer than just electric blobs and spitting birds, said Anita Frazier, an analyst for NPD Group, which tracks the retail sales of games. Between Uncharted 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and Zelda: Skyward Sword, I expect November to be a huge month for new physical retail sales, she said.

may mean more problems, Rothaus said. It is a good idea to double the capacity of a bar with its track record and place it next to an alley? Rothaus said. To understand some of the worry, Rothaus said one rst must look at the overall picture of police service in the city. There is one sergeant and three deputies on any given shift and any alcohol-related incident at a bar requires a minimum of two units responding. A greater disturbance takes three and sometimes a whole shift could be used. Its not the end of the world and happens in every community but you have to ask how often does that happen? Rothaus asked. San Carlos in general has an over-concentration of liquor licenses in its downtown, where the Carlos Club is located, according to the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. In 2010, San Carlos had 132 arrests for public intoxication. In comparison, the similarlysized cities of Burlingame had 24, Foster City had 33, Belmont had 73 and bar-heavy Los Gatos had 93. From October 2010 to October 2011, San Carlos police logged 131 alcohol-related incidents at the Carlos Club alone including public intoxication, driving while under the inuence, public disturbances, assault, battery, domestic violence, excessive noise and random spot checks by ofcers. The Carlos Club had nearly twice as many as Clooneys Pub, the Orchid Room and The Patio Bar combined, Rothaus said. And thats prior to any expansion, he said. Rothaus also points to the survey of intoxicated drivers sidetracked to First Chance rather than jail in which participants offer where they had their last drink. Of 472 responders, 92 could name a specic location and of those the Carlos Club tied for second behind the Clubhouse Bistro at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Foster City. Winters Tavern and BJs Brewhouse also tied for second. None of these facts means the Carlos Club will become any more trouble with expansion, Rothaus conceded, but they certainly dont paint an optimistic picture. I dont have a crystal ball. I cant predict what the impact will be but I can guess based on my experience, based on their alcoholrelated incidents and what I already know, Rothaus said. Aside from the Carlos Club, Rothaus said expansion plans by any other bar would be taken on a case-by-case basis. He also said that he liked the design hes seen so far for the expansion. The plan looks nice, he said. But thats not my issue. The San Carlos Planning Commission meets 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 5 at City Hall, 600 Elm St., San Carlos. Not as many people attended the rally as she hoped, though. The local dream council started rallying in August in various cities including San Mateo, Palo Alto and Redwood City. Those events typically drew about 150, Raughley said. Maybe political fatigue is setting in, she said. She is determined, however, to continue rallying against the 1 percent. The economy is rigged in favor of the obscenely wealthy, she said. I was asleep for years. Now I want to wake up the neighbors to get them out in the streets. Millbrae resident Gary Graham, 69, never protested or participated in a rally before the group held a bridge demonstration in San Mateo in October. The group rallied at the bridge to highlight job creation related to xing Americas infrastructure. He calls Congress dysfunctional. I want to add my voice to all the other voices in expressing the frustration we are all feeling. It is time to generate jobs and get the economy going, Graham said. Congress needs to start listening to these groups, he said. If money is indeed speech then we may get drowned out, Graham said about the wealthiest in America. The group is urging people to send letters directly to the regions elected members in Congress to voice their concerns about the nations decit and putting people back to work.

the required conditions. Zoning Administrator Brian Moura, also the assistant city manager, granted Duncan a parking exception in June which gives the club the right to use the private lot for expansion. However, the Planning Commission must rst sign off on the specic expansion plan for outdoor dining, drinking and entertainment. Associate Planner Jill Lewis, in a staff report to the Planning Commission in October, recommended denying the application but commissioners wanted to revisit the request after Duncan hired an architect to nalize design features and add extra rest rooms. On Monday, Lewis will also return with both a recommendation for approval and a recommendation for denial which were both requested by the commission for consideration. Even the recommendation for approval, though, doesnt omit the public safety issues. There are still signicant concerns. Those have not really gone away even with revisions to the plan, Lewis said. In her October summary, Lewis found the plan consistent with several aspects of the city code but not public safety. Specically, the report noted the patio proposal includes the possibility to create hidden dark corners with inadequate lighting in which potential crimes could be committed. The planning staff also said the stucco wall would block what was happening on the patio where noise can amplify and crowds can congregate. The revamped plan calls for entertainment limited to 10 p.m., food service ending at midnight and one security guard posted at each entrance at all times. The existing establishment is approximately 2,200 square feet and sits on a 7,800 -squarefoot lot south of San Carlos Avenue. The maximum occupancy of the indoor building is 88 patrons and Lewis wrote there is the potential for crowds to spill out into the alley or cause a trafc backup on El Camino Real. The Planning Commission will again consider the application Monday night before making its recommendation to the City Council. In recommending the parking exception in June, Lewis noted the Carlos Club is an institution dating back to 1922 and the iconic neon sign has stood since 1947. The club is a destination point and the parking exception was the rst step in helping Duncan fully realize his vision of the Carlos Club as an allencompassing full service establishment. Not so fast, said Rothaus. The Carlos Club is already cause for concern and more of it

OCCUPY
Continued from page 1
The Mid-Peninsula American Dream Council, afliated with the MoveOn.org movement, drew about 30 people to the intersection of Ralston Avenue and El Camino Real holding signs reading Our Middle Class Too Big too Fail, Honk for the 99%, and Big Money Out of Elections, among others. Supporters in passing vehicles obliged the group, sounding their horns as they passed for a couple of hours. Belmont resident Sheila Cockshott, 78, said the rally was not a protest but rather an exercise in free speech. The 1 percent are increasingly getting wealthy and the middle class is sinking more and more, Cockshott said. She decided to join the group after seeing a University of California at Davis police ofcer recently pepper spray a group of college students at an Occupy rally. That was so wrong. It made me want to be more active, she said. She is also upset with banks who she blames for crashing our economy. Cockshott was not alone in her disdain for the banks and Congress as she stood alongside Rick Bonilla, a member of the San Mateo Public Works Commission, who held a sign that read Put Americans to Work Rebuilding America. The rally was organized in part by Cilla Raughley, 61, a San Mateo resident. Similar rallies were held across the United States yesterday.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2011 SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Before starting

another project, be sure to first finish what youve already begun. Focus and follow-through become difficult when you have too many things going on at the same time. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Be extremely selective regarding whose counsel you follow. Going with the wrong advice could cause minor complications to turn into very serious ones. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Warning signs are all over your chart, telling you that going to the wrong adviser could cause complications that would turn

into grave impediments. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Subdue any kind of inclinations that invite distraction. Chances are they would cause you to waver in your pursuit of an objective, when you should be giving your full attention. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- By pretending you know a lot about something when in reality you know little, you could get yourself in an embarrassing position when asked to explain it to others. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If a friend of yours attempts to pry some confidential information out of you, hold firm in keeping mum. If this particular info morsel were to be circulated, youd be blamed.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- All being difficult will get you is a loss of support from your friends. Dont be your own worst enemy; build bridges, dont burn them. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Take it slow when engaged in something important that could produce many future rewards, and make sure you do everything right. Patience will get you where you want to go much quicker than haste. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- When caught up in something that is not directly under your control, it behooves you to be on guard. You could easily be blamed for anothers mistake and be forced to rectify it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Dont get caught up in air-

ing a disagreement with your spouse in front of others. Having an audience would only make matters worse as each of you tries to look like the blameless party. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Conditions are such where a gadget, tool, material or a method could easily cause you to run amok if youre not totally familiar with its intricacies. Get quality instructions first. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Impulsiveness on your part could cause you to purchase an expensive piece of merchandise for which you currently have little use but hope one day to have. Wait to buy it until you actually need it. COPYRIGHT 2011 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

TAX
Continued from page 1
extra 1.5 percent, and those making more than $1 million would be taxed an additional 2 percent. The combination of income and sales tax hikes would raise about $7 billion and expire in 2016. The governor declined comment on his tax plan Thursday. He did make a rare appearance before a joint legislative committee to press lawmakers for public employee pension reform, which he says is needed rst in order to win public support for taxes. He wants to increase the retirement age, get local and state government workers to pay more toward their pensions and retiree health care, and place new workers into a hybrid plan that includes 401(k)-style accounts. Without pension reform, I dont think well have the credibility to ask people to do other things that are very much needed, Brown told lawmakers. Browns political adviser, Steve Glazer, would not conrm he administration was ready to submit the language for a ballot proposal but said the approach ts with the governors budget philosophy. The governor continues to promote a balanced solution to the state budget that combines difcult cuts and efciencies with adequate revenue that protects schools and public safety, he told the AP. California is facing a projected $13 billion shortfall over the next 18 months. With tax revenue running behind projections, the budget passed last summer calls for automatic spending cuts after the rst of the new year to higher education, public schools and some social services. Brown, a Democrat, has been developing his tax plan in a series of closed-door meetings with his staff, labor leaders and Democratic lawmakers. He has argued since taking ofce that raising taxes is necessary in order to prevent further cuts to essential services such as public safety and schools. Among the options for school districts is slicing another seven days off the states minimum 175-day school year, which already is ve days shorter than before the recession began. Earlier this year, Republicans blocked his effort to place a measure on the ballot as part of budget negotiations. California has cut tens of billions of dollars in state spending since the recession began in late 2007 and sent tax revenue plunging. The state general fund this scal year is $86 billion, down from $103 billion before the recession. The additional revenue from the temporary taxes Brown proposes would be directed toward schools, which would in turn free money for other services. Browns tax proposal would also seek to protect money the state is directing to local governments for taking on additional responsibility for thousands of lower-level criminals, many of whom would be incarcerated in county jails instead of state prisons. The initiatives prospects at the polls will be far from certain if it qualies for the ballot. The recession has thrown millions of Californians out of work, and several other groups also are planning tax-related initiatives, creating a logjam of confusing proposals. One, for example, seeks to close a corporate tax loophole while another seeks to raise income taxes to generate $10 billion for schools. Tom Del Beccaro, chairman of the state Republican Party, said voters turned down the last seven tax increase proposals and will do so again. These will be turned down as well because voters know better than Gov. Brown, Del Beccaro said in a statement.

Biden: Sacrifices of troops bring end to war


CAMP VICTORY, Iraq As Iraqi flags were raised in what was once a giant U.S. military base, Joe Biden joined Iraqi officials in honoring forces who the vice president said made it possible to end this war. The American militarys role here is nearing an end, but Iraqis still must contend with the violence that the nearly nine-year conflict unleashed: 20 people were killed in attacks around the country Thursday. Bidens comments came during a ceremony at Camp Victory, one of the last American bases that will be handed over to the Iraqi government before U.S. troops leave Iraq this month. The Iraqi government hosted the ceremony as a way to honor the sacrifices of Iraqi and U.S.-led coalition forces. Because of you and the work that those of you in uniform have done, we are now able to end this war, Biden told the hundreds of American and Iraqi Joe Biden service members. Speaking under a massive chandelier in a Saddam-era palace that Biden referred to as a grotesque monument to a dictators greed, the vice president said the U.S. takes immense pride in what the American troops have been able to do in Iraq and that they are leaving with their heads held high. We owe you. We owe you, said Biden, whose son has served in Iraq. and stopped a car matching the description and correctional staff called to the scene positively identied the boys as the escapees.

Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, referring at times to our friends, the Americans, praised the troops for their sacrifices and said that based on the joint efforts of the coalition and Iraqi forces, stability in the country has been restored. Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, a Shiite who won re-election last year, was much more circumspect in his comments, focusing his thanks and praise for the U.S. military withdrawal as promised rather than on American sacrifices or achievements such as overthrowing Saddam Hussein. I extend my appreciation to Barack Obamas administration for carrying out the withdrawal from all Iraqi lands on time, he said. appearance date.
