Nearly 55 percent of schools in
California, compared to 63 percent
in San Mateo County, are meeting
academic assessment goals, accord-
ing to the 2012 academic perform-
ance report released by the
California Department of Education
Thursday morning.
The APR, which consists of three
separate reports, is an annual report
card for every school in the state.
Scores leveled off and, in some
cases, decreased. In California, 54.6
percent of schools are meeting the
target both schoolwide and in the
various subgroups. In San Mateo
County, 63 percent of schools meet
those requirements. Even more
schools locally, 75 percent, have
scores at or above 800, which is
considered procient. However, not
everyone is making the grade.
Weve set a high bar for schools
and they have more than met the
challenge, despite the enormous
obstacles that years of budget cuts
have put in their way, State

OAKLAND The Oakland

in this surprising season: Justin
The As struck out 11 times
against last years AL Cy Young
winner and MVP and were unable
to complete an improbable come-
back in the AL division series, los-
ing Game 5 to the Detroit Tigers 6-
0 on Thursday night.
Oakland overcame losses in the
rst two games of the best-of-ve
series and a two-run decit in the
ninth inning of Game 4 to force the
decisive game against the Tigers.
In what looked as if it could be a
good omen for the As, the previ-

District elections could be in the countys
community college districts future after the
board discussed a tentative district map during
a study session Wednesday.
Board members of the San Mateo County
Community College District are currently
elected by voters countywide but there has
been recent attention given to the process
including a pending lawsuit against the coun-
ty for its own at-large rather than district
supervisorial elections. Previously, the district
was advised by the state chancellors to look at
the way local elections are set up. Over the
last month, the board held public hearings on
the matter. On Wednesday, the board studied
the matter and chose a possible district map.
We have not made any decisions, said
board President Dave Mandelkern.
At the next meeting Wednesday, Oct. 24, the
board will review a nalized map. If it moves
forward, the map would then be posted for a
90-day comment period. A vote on the map
and changing to district elections could hap-
pen in January, at the earliest.
The district oversees three colleges and
serves more than 40,000 students annually.
Trustees for the ve-member board are not
required to live within a certain geographic
area or district.
The differences in the two systems are pri-
marily how many voters a candidate needs to
convince and how much money it will cost to
run. At-large elections ask voters to choose
board members to represent the entire county
instead of just the district from which they are
elected. Proponents argue this makes mem-
bers more accountable to all voters and limits
factions on the board. Opponents, however,
say the system tends to be more expensive
because of the countywide campaigning
In district elections, voters only choose a
representative from within specic boundaries
which cuts down on campaign costs for candi-
dates but which opponents say leave board
members with a narrow focus on only the spe-
cic concerns of their district.
The California Voting Rights Act of
2001 prohibits at-large elections if they
dilute the voting influence of minority
groups. The act is largely the basis of the
pending lawsuit against San Mateo County
which elects its supervisors countywide to
represent individual districts.
In response, county voters in November will
be asked whether to keep the status quo or
switch to district elections for members of the
Board of Supervisors. San Mateo County vot-
ers rejected similar proposals to change the
system in both 1978 and 1980.
But changing the college districts system
will take more than just a vote to do so. The
board will rst need to draw district bound-
aries and decide whether to keep the current
ve members or expand to nine seats. With
five trustees, each district would include
136,000 to 150,000 voters. A seven-member
board drops the number of constituents to
between 97,000 and 107,000.
A change could happen as soon as
November 2013, depending on how long the
drawing of boundaries takes. On that timeline,
current trustees would nish out their terms
but those with terms ending in 2013 would
need to live within the new districts to seek re-

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, House
Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and other
local and federal officials announced
Thursday that $942 million in federal funding
has been secured for the citys Central
Subway project.
That amount is expected to cover the major-
ity of the cost of the $1.6 billion project to cre-
ate a new branch of San Francisco Municipal
Railways T-Third line to link the citys South
of Market neighborhood to Chinatown.
The subway is expected to open to the pub-
lic in 2019.
This project is a vital enhancement of our
public transit system, Lee said. It will con-
nect to some of the most densely populated
and rapidly developing areas of the city.
Pelosi said she and her family are very
familiar with that transit corridor because they
have waited for packed 30-Stockton Muni
buses to go downtown.
Wed say, Here comes the bus, here comes
the bus, there goes the bus! Because it was
always crowded, she said.

that the Central Subway is projected have the

The 22-year-old woman accused
of stabbing a cab driver as he drove
her from a Daly City shopping cen-
ter back home to Pacica and steal-
ing his taxi is mentally t to stand
trial on attempted murder and
weapon charges.
Amanda Jenille Aldeguer, who
was committed to Napa State
Hospital, is now able to aid in her
own defense, ruled Judge Craig
Parsons based on reports from doc-
tors at the facility.
Both the prosecution and
Aldeguers defense attorney submit-
ted the reports to the court for a
decision on her competency rather
than request a trial on the question.
Parsons deter-
mined she was
m e n t a l l y
restored and
reinstated crimi-
nal proceedings.
She will have a
p r e l i mi n a r y
hearing Nov. 14.
Aldeguer pre-
viously pleaded
not guilty to
attempted murder, assault and car-
jacking charges.
Pacica police arrested Aldeguer
March 16 after her mother called
911 for medical help after seeing an
injury on her hand. Authorities con-
nected it to an earlier stabbing and
carjacking report in the area of West
Manor Drive and Esplanade
Avenue. At that call, they found a
bleeding man, a driver for Serra
Yellow Cab, who said a woman he
picked up at Serramonte Center
pulled out a knife during the trip to
Pacifica and stabbed him in the
neck. As he resisted, she continued
to stab, he said. After the driver
stopped the car and ed, the woman
later identied as Aldeguer got into
the front seat and drove away. Police
found the car near a Pacica park
with a knife inside. The cars video
camera recorded the attack, accord-
ing to the District Attorneys Ofce.
Aldeguer was apprehended in
South San Francisco.
She remains in custody in lieu of
$500,000 .
Alleged cabbie stabber fit for trial
The defense attorney for a man
charged with fatally stabbing an
alleged romantic rival near the ten-
nis courts of Mills High School in
Millbrae needs more time to
review doctor reports before decid-
ing whether to challenge their con-
clusion that his client is mentally
fit to stand trial for murder.
Laungatasi Samana Ahio, 23, is
charged in the Aug. 4, 2010 mur-
der of Jared Afu. He is also alleged
to have lied in wait but prosecutors
opted against seeking the death
penalty. If Ahio is tried and con-
victed, he faces life in prison with-
out parole.
First, though, Ahios competen-
cy must be determined. On
Thursday, the defense asked for
another week and the matter was
put over until Oct. 18, said District
Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
Competency is a persons ability
to aid in his or her defense at trial
while sanity is a persons mental
state at the time of an alleged
crime. He was committed to Napa
State Hospital in June and recently
Ahio, then 20, is accused of
stabbing Afu several times in the
face and neck just before mid-
night. Authorities found Afu near
the tennis
courts of Mills
High School
and soon pro-
nounced him
dead but Ahio
remained at
large until the
f o l l o w i n g
evening when
he turned him-
self in to the
South San Francisco Police
Earlier that night, police said
Ahio began following Afu as he
walked and smoked with friends.
At some point, Ahio and Afu
became separated from their
respective friends and confronted
each other over a personal issue.
Afus friends reported seeing him
stabbed by Ahio around 11:30
p.m. The next afternoon, a blood-
ied backpack containing identifi-
cation and a bloody knife was dis-
covered a block from the school,
on the side of the New Vision
United Methodist Church on

SACRAMENTO After returning
to the governors ofce, Jerry Brown
criticized a political
culture he said
lacked a common
purpose and warned
of a war of all
against all unless
the sniping camps
learned to compro-
mise and fix
Californias persist-
ent budget problems.
Those efforts
failed, and now the Democratic governor
nds himself ghting his own political
battle as he tries to persuade voters to
pass a $6 billion tax increase on the
November ballot that he says is crucial
for closing the states decit.
With the election just a month away,
Browns initiative to boost the statewide
sales tax by a quarter-cent and income
taxes for those earning $250,000 a year
or more is in jeopardy, primarily due to
a wealthy brother and sister who are at
opposite ends of the political spectrum,
and Browns own missteps.
The political slugfest is bad news for
Browns Proposition 30 and a competing
tax initiative from Molly Munger, a lib-
eral-leaning Los Angeles civil rights
attorney who is the daughter of a billion-
aire executive for Warren Buffetts
Berkshire Hathaway.
She has spent $34 million so far in
support of Proposition 38, which would
raise about $10 billion a year through a
broadly based income tax increase and
send the revenue directly to school dis-
tricts, bypassing the Legislature.
Her brother, Stanford physicist
Charles Munger Jr., is a conservative
who has poured more than $20 million
of his fortune into a committee aimed at
defeating Browns ballot initiative and
supporting a separate initiative targeting
public employee unions.
The attacks from both Mungers have
so angered Browns Democratic allies
that they issued a statement saying they
would become known as the million-
aires who destroyed Californias schools
and universities.
California initiative campaigns are
often exercises in excessive spending,
but this ght is unusual because much of
it is taking place between
Democratically aligned interests seeking
to accomplish essentially the same thing
restoring funding to California
schools after years of budget cuts.
Teachers unions back Browns initia-
tive and the state PTA is aligned with
Molly Munger.
The public sniping is erupting just as
vote-by-mail ballots are being sent to
Californias 17 million registered voters.
When California voters are in doubt,
when theyre confused about initiatives,
they tend to vote no. What this direct hit
by Munger on Prop. 30 can do is confuse
voters. Perhaps both 30 and 38 go
down, said Sherry Bebitch Jeffe, a sen-
ior fellow at the University of Southern
Californias School of Policy, Planning
and Development.
Browns tax initiative already faced an
uphill struggle after a summer of unfa-
vorable headlines and major spending
decisions, including revelations that the
state parks department was hiding $54
million and the Legislature had given out
pay raises to staffers at a time of deep
budget cuts.
Brown also approved plans for a $68
billion high-speed rail system with wan-
ing public support and promoted a $24
billion water tunnel project that has
strong opposition in Northern
California also has one of the nations
highest unemployment rate and, recent-
ly, its highest gasoline prices.
The state budget Brown signed into
law relies on the tax revenue that
Proposition 30 will generate if voters
approve it. Without it, Brown has
warned California schools and colleges
face $6 billion in automatic spending
Brown has also been largely absent
from public view, despite saying that
passing Proposition 30 is his top priori-
ty. His last public campaign event was
Aug. 30. He did hold some separate
gubernatorial events in September.
Hes got to explain it to people,
because its his measure. He needs to be
out there explaining it, said Mark
Baldassare, president of the Public
Policy Institute of California.

CDC: Meningitis outbreak growing, 14 people dead
WASHINGTON Federal health ofcials have tracked
down 12,000 of the roughly 14,000 people who may have
received contaminated steroid shots in the nations growing
meningitis outbreak, warning Thursday that patients will need
to keep watch for symptoms of the deadly infection for months.
We know that we are not out of the woods yet, Dr. J. Todd
Weber of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said
as the death toll reached 14.
Of the 170 people sickened in the outbreak, all but one have
a rare fungal form of meningitis after receiving suspect steroid
shots for back pain, the CDC said. The other case is an ankle
infection discovered in Michigan; steroid shots also can be
given to treat aching knees, shoulders or other joints.
Fungus has been found in at least 50 vials of an injectable
steroid medication made at a specialty compounding pharmacy
in Massachusetts, investigators said.
FBI seeks help in finding missing Colorado girl
WESTMINSTER, Colo. Authorities looking for a miss-
ing 10-year-old Colorado girl are asking the public for help
nding who apparently kidnapped her, a day after a body was
found in a park.
Police have yet to link the body found seven miles from
Jessica Ridgeways home to her Oct. 5 disappearance, or even
say if it belongs to a child. Jessica disappeared after leaving
home to meet friends at a park for her walk to school.
On Thursday, the FBIs Behavioral Analysis Unit released a
list of changes that a person committing a crime against a child
would exhibit. Among them: sudden differences in appearance,
missed appointments, being absent from work, or leaving town
with no explanation.
When California voters are in doubt,
when theyre confused about initiatives, they tend
to vote no.What this direct hit by Munger on Prop. 30
can do is confuse voters. Perhaps both 30 and 38 go down.

ANKARA, Turkey Escalating tensions
with Russia, Turkey defended its forced land-
ing of a Syrian passenger jet en route from
Moscow to Damascus, saying Thursday it was
carrying Russian ammunition and military
equipment destined for the Syrian Defense
Syria branded the incident piracy and Russia
called the search illegal, saying it endangered
the lives of Russian citizens aboard the plane.
The accusation by Turkish Prime Minister
Recep Tayyip Erdogan contradicted denials by
both Russia and Syria that anything illegal had
been aboard the Airbus A320 that was inter-
cepted over Turkish airspace late Wednesday.
Equipment and ammunitions that were
being sent from a Russian agency ... to the
Syrian Defense Ministry, were conscated
from the jetliner, Erdogan told reporters in
Ankara. Their examination is continuing and
the necessary (action) will follow.
He did not provide details, but Turkish
media said the seized cargo included missile
parts as well as radio receivers, antennas and
other military communications equipment.
As you know, defense industry equipment
or weapons, ammunitions ... cannot be carried
on passenger planes, Erdogan said. It is
against international rules for such things to
pass through our air space.
Erdogan refused to say how or from
whom Turkey had learned that the twice-
weekly scheduled ight would be used to
transport military gear to Syria.
As you will appreciate, those who gave the
tip, which establishments, these things cannot
be disclosed, he said.
The United States said it backed Turkeys
decision to intercept the plane.
Any transfer of any military equipment to
the Syrian regime at this time is very concern-
ing, and we look forward to hearing more from
the Turkish side when they get to the bottom of
what they found, said State Department
spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.
She declined to comment on Turkish reports
that the intelligence on the planes contents had
come from the United States. The plane was
allowed to continue to Damascus after several
hours, without the cargo.

WASHINGTON The Obama administra-
tion declared the ultra-violent street gang MS-
13 to be an international criminal group on
Thursday, an unprecedented crackdown target-
ing the nances of the sprawling U.S. and
Central American gang infamous for hacking
and stabbing victims with machetes.
The Treasury Department formally designat-
ed MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, a transnation-
al criminal organization. The aim is to freeze it
out of the U.S. nancial system and seize what
are estimated to be millions of dollars in crim-
inal prots from drug and human smuggling
and other crimes committed in this country.
The gang was founded by immigrants ee-
ing El Salvadors civil war more than two
decades ago. Its founders took lessons learned
from that brutal conict to the streets of Los
Angeles and built a reputation as one of the
most ruthless and sophisticated street gangs,
according to Immigration and Customs
Enforcement Special Agent Jason Shatarsky.
With as many as 10,000 members in 46
states, the gang has expanded far beyond its
initial roots. Members are accused of major
crimes including murder, kidnapping, prostitu-
tion, drug smuggling and human trafcking.

roponents of Measure A, a proposed
half-cent sales tax increase in San
Mateo County to raise $60 million a
year for 10 years, have paraded out a panoply
of beneciaries including child abuse pre-
vention programs; health care for low-
income children, seniors and the disabled;
county parks; after-school programs; jail
stafng; countywide gang and drug task
forces and assistance for hospitals including
the private Seton Medical Center in Daly
City. With the exception of Seton, the bene-
ciaries are merely a description of certain key
services the county government provides to
its residents.
However, the measure needs 50 percent
approval and requires that it not specify
where the money would go. So the ballot text
merely provides examples of the types of
services that may benet from the tax. The
measure might as well state it will fund
county services and provide money to Seton,
which, according to campaign nance state-
ments, has raised nearly $1 million to help
the measure pass.
Each of the beneciaries are worthy, how-
ever, the lack of specic language should
give the average voter pause particularly
because of the timing of this measure and the
fact that the county just asked voters for
three tax measures in June. Of those three
June tax measures, one on rental cars passed.
All three were presented as measures that
would not impact the average county resident
because many are still aficted by the eco-
nomic downturn. That economic downturn
has not suddenly vanished and many are still
feeling the effects. With several tax initiatives
on this particular ballot, asking San Mateo
County residents for a sales tax increase for
general purposes with several specic intents
seems a bit tone-deaf.
With its budget nearing $1.9 billion, the
county has its hand in nearly every aspect of
our lives though its work is often unseen.
Whether it be funding for health services,
social services and the local criminal justice
system, its costs often rise as the economy
turns down because more people need county
services and crime tends to rise. That is a
regrettable fact of life.
With the downturn, county ofcials point
to a raft of cuts to maintain its bottom line
while still providing much-needed services.
It has cut more than $70 million in operating
costs through a combination of eliminating
500 positions, slashing budgets and negotiat-
ing $13 million in labor costs. Yet still more
can be done. The county is embarking on a
structural and operational reorganization
because of the evolving role and value of
government in light of scal instability and
new models of service delivery. That is a
worthwhile goal and certainly merited con-
sidering the weight of its organization and
the tentacles of state and federal rules and
obligations. That effort may not be the
panacea, but it certainly is a step in the right
direction. Another consideration is the pen-
sion obligation to retirees and the benets
and salary package of current employees.
There was a time when government employ-
ment was considered a public service which
was rewarded by a healthy pension but lower
pay. That formula has been skewed in recent
years by a variety of factors and has reached
a point of unsustainability. There has been
some headway on that front, and this is not
merely an issue for this county. But the scal
impact is real and more needs to be done to
alleviate the burden on the average taxpayer.
It is that average taxpayer that will feel the
brunt of this measure in a time when such
burdens should be minimized. Proponents
point to the countless and worthwhile pro-
grams that will benet from this tax increase.
But there also has to be some consideration
of the average county resident who is not a
regular beneciary of such programs and yet
is still suffering from the weight of the eco-
nomic downturn in a variety of ways.
This measure is well-meaning and would
likely benet many. However, its lack of
specicity even with a range of possible uses
combined with the need for nancial and
structural reform and poor timing make it a
less than palatable proposition for the aver-
age county resident. Vote no on Measure A.
No on B
County supervisors deserved to be heard by
all the people in San Mateo County and not a
small number of voters. The best reason for
county-wide elections will ensure that candi-
dates understand all the issues. If we expect
supervisors to nd common ground on impor-
tant decisions after the election, the cart is
before the horse. No on B please.

The gas situation in California
As Ronald Reagan would say: Here we go
again. Its the same politicians for the last 20
years now wanting to check this thing out.
Perhaps it would be better to understand that
any time you create an exception (a separate
blend of gasoline for California), you end up
with unintended consequences. The conse-
quence, in this case, is the consumer getting
shafted with high prices at the pump. Now
why on Earth do we, California, need a differ-
ent blend of gas at the pump? Just more signs
that the EPA and government are adding costs
and enormous liability to the plight of our citi-
zens. Sometimes more is less. Eliminate EPA
and other agencies who have basically very lit-
tle to do with making things better, but more to
do with making things expensive and difcult
to manage and sustain. The solution should
instead be easy and painless. Less is more.

nyone who has watched a basketball
game has likely seen what is casually
known as the op.
The player with the ball makes contact with
a standing defender or a defender who leaps to
block or prevent a shot toward the rim, then
one of the players makes a dramatic fall to the

what must have been an egregious foul. When

This political season, candidates, parties and
outside interest groups have each seemingly
tried to take a op.
For instance, Republicans have tried to paint
the Obama administration as heartless for the
fact that the Affordable Health Care act antici-
pates a reduction of growth in Medicare of
more than $700 million. The budget proposed
by vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan
makes that same accounting move. Of course,
anything the Democrats want to feel aggrieved
about in the budget is a op, too; the
Democrat-led Senate has not taken up its duty
to pass a budget in several years, so of course
its easy to fault the other party.
Where it gets tricky is nding out who will
be the enforcer for the ops. Unlike the NBA,
theres no commissioners ofce where viola-
tors can be issued punishment. Its up to vot-
ers, who should take with a grain of salt the
claims coming from candidates and parties.
Can unemployment
figures be trusted?
Midland (Mich.) Daily News
s it good news or are the numbers
fudged? Thats the debate raging in the
aftermath of the most recent report on the
countrys unemployment rate.
According to the latest statistics, the nations
unemployment rate fell below 8.0 (to 7.8 per-
cent) for the rst time since January 2009.
The Labor Department said that employers
added 114,000 jobs in September. The econo-
my also created 86,000 more jobs in July and
August than rst estimated. Wages rose in
September and more people started looking for
work, the Labor Department reported.
But many say the numbers are being spun to
help Obamas re-election bid, with less than a
month remaining to Election Day. The Wall
Street Journal downplayed the report, saying to
take it with a grain of salt.
Ways and Means Republicans sent an email
to the media, presenting 10 points that refute
the Labor Departments most recent report.
Among the points mentioned include the fol-
lowing: If the unemployment rate included the
invisible unemployed (discouraged workers
who dropped out or never joined the work-
force), the September 2012 unemployment rate
would be 10.9 percent; and, during the Obama
administration, the number of people not in the
labor force has grown by 8.2 million while
total employment has grown by less than
800,000. This means that during the Obama
years new workforce dropouts have outnum-
bered new employees by 10 to 1, according to
the email.
This is the election season during a hotly
contested presidential race. And this is what

NEW YORK The market closed
roughly at Thursday, underwhelmed
by encouraging jobs news but unrattled
by worrisome developments in the glob-

shrugging off a widening U.S. trade

and a ratings cut for Spain.

gains and losses. It closed slightly
down, along with the Nasdaq composite

Joe Costigan, director of equity
research at Bryn Mawr Trust Company
in Pennsylvania, described Thursday as
a reasonable day.
What were seeing is more of a
wave, he said, not a tide.
The Dow nished down 18.58 points
to 13,326.39. The S&P 500 inched up
0.28 point to 1,432.84. The Nasdaq fell
2.37 points to 3,049.41.
The Labor Department said that
weekly applications for unemployment
aid fell to their lowest level since
February 2008, before the nancial cri-
sis, and when the unemployment rate
was much lower 4.9 percent, com-
pared with todays 7.8 percent.
Citi analysts upgraded U.S. stocks to
the equivalent of buy. The analysts, led
by Hasan Tevk and Robert Buckland,
argued that stocks are relatively cheap
and that central banks seem likely to
take more steps to try to boost the econ-
Still, their report wasnt all cheery,
and neither were most of the other eco-
nomic developments Thursday. Prots
are slowing around the world, the Citi
analysts wrote, and (earnings-per-
share) expectations need to be cut fur-
ther, in our view.
Already this week, the aluminum
manufacturer Alcoa kicked off the third-
quarter earnings season with a disap-
pointing loss.

WASHINGTON Declining appli-
cations for unemployment benets have
typically pointed to stronger hiring.
Not so much anymore.
Since the U.S. recession officially
ended in June 2009, fewer layoffs have
meant fewer people seeking unemploy-
ment aid. On Thursday, for example, the
government said rst-time applications
for benets hit a 4 1/2-year low.
Yet job growth remains sluggish. That
was evident last week in the govern-
ments jobs report for September. A sur-
vey of employers showed that they
added a modest 114,000 jobs last month.
And the unemployment rate, based on
a separate survey of households, did sink
in August to 7.8 percent from 8.1 per-
If fewer people are being laid off, why
arent employers hiring more?
Blame the slow pace of the U.S. econ-
omy, damage from Europes economic
crisis and fear that tax increases and
spending cuts could trigger another U.S.
recession next year.
Many companies have said they lack
condence that the U.S. economy will
strengthen enough in coming months to
justify hiring now.
The relationship between claims and
jobs has been less strong during this
recovery than in past post-war recover-
ies, said Drew Matus, an economist at
UBS. Theres a hiring problem out
there, as opposed to a layoff problem.
Fewer U.S. layoffs no longer suggest strong hiring
SAN JOSE A federal appeals court
has sided with Samsung Electronics
Corp. in one aspect of its ongoing patent
dispute with Apple Inc.
The Washington, D.C.-based U.S.
Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit
on Thursday overturned a judges order
blocking Samsung from selling its
Galaxy Nexus smart phone pending a
patent lawsuit by Apple.
Apple accuses Samsung of stealing its
smartphone and tablet computer tech-
A jury in September agreed with the
company and ordered Samsung to pay
$1 billion. Samsung has moved to set the
judgment aside.
In its Thursday ruling, the appeals
court said Apple had failed to show that
any of the patent violations it accused
Samsung of in regards to the Galaxy
would immediately and irreparably hurt
its own smart phone sales. It said Judge
Lucy Koh had abused her discretion in
granting Apple a preliminary injunction
earlier this year.
The decision allowed Samsung to con-
tinue selling the Galaxy Nexus.
Government attorneys
object to Solyndra plan
WILMINGTON, Del. Government
attorneys are urging a Delaware bank-
ruptcy judge to reject the proposed reor-
ganization plan of failed solar power
company Solyndra LLC.
Internal Revenue Service attorneys
led papers this week saying the plans
principal purpose is tax avoidance. The
plan allows for two private equity funds
that control Solyndra to potentially reap
hundreds of millions of dollars in tax
breaks after Solyndra emerges from
bankruptcy, using net operating losses.
The Department of Energy, which
loaned Solyndra $528 million, also is
objecting to the plan, saying it fails to
protect DOEs $30 million interest in
pre-bankruptcy collateral.
Court sides with Samsung in Apple dispute

DALLAS Just weeks ago,
American Airlines was working its way
through bankruptcy court, on schedule
for one of the fastest turnarounds in avi-
ation history. Planes were full. Revenue
was pouring in. Then seemingly
overnight, American became the butt of
jokes from Facebook to late-night TV.
A slowdown that American blamed on
pilots caused massive delays and cancel-
lations. Then rows of seats came loose
on a few planes. Passengers wondered if
theyd get where they were going on
time and in one piece.
American Airlines has a new slogan,
Jay Leno joked on NBCs The Tonight
Show. Your seat is free to move about
the cabin.
Some travel experts advised booking
on other airlines to avoid getting strand-
ed on American. Low-cost rival Spirit
Airlines picked on American with this
ad: We let low fares loose, not seats.
Americans on-time record fell well
below its competitors, and its cancella-
tions were the highest of any airline.
There are signs that the trouble which
began in September when American
threw out the union contract of its pilots
is causing passengers to switch.
Domestic trafc fell by 7.1 percent in
September from the same month a year
earlier. No other major airline experi-
enced a drop like that.
Thomas W. Horton, CEO of American
and parent AMR Corp., acknowledges
that a few weeks in September were
very difficult on our customers.
American has said little else to ease cus-
tomers concerns.
Horton and other executives instead
steer conversations toward the airlines
recent nancial performance, which by
many measures has led the industry. For
six straight months, American the
nations third-largest airline has
reported larger gains in a key revenue-
per-mile statistic than rivals United
Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Southwest
Airlines and US Airways.
American Airlines stumbles on path to recovery
Business brief
By Julio Lara
If you think the San Francisco Giants
and Oakland Athletics are good for a nail
biter from time to time, then you havent
gone to a Serra-Bellarmine football game
In the Patrick Walsh era, a span that
encompasses 14 football games, 10 of
those games have been decided by single
digits. And to nd the biggest margin of
victory (21 by the Padres) you have to go
back to 2001 Walshs rst year at the
helm of Serra.
In the last 12 years, their 14 battles split
right down the middle, 7-7. So, the Daily
Journal Game of the Week, schedule for a
1 p.m. kickoff Saturday at Serra, pits two
of the best teams in Northern California
in a bit of rubber match.
Theyve all been down to the wire,
Walsh said. It doesnt matter if theyre
up or were down, since 2001 this game
has been a ridiculously competitive, four-
quarter football game. Were expecting
that this Saturday.
Bellarmine has won the last ve
matchups by a combined 45 points. Last
year, the Bells rode their win against
Serra all the way to the CIF Division I
state championship game. This year, the
script is ipped a little bit. The Padres are
the team atop many experts polls. And
with so much riding on this game, includ-
ing a leg up on the West Catholic Athletic
League standings, youd think the hype
behind this game would be gigantic.
Walsh says its been almost the oppo-
Its been quiet, Walsh said. And
thats OK. I think the focus around cam-
pus has been on each other and the things
we can do to get better on a daily basis.
With that said, we have a great opponent
in Bellarmine, whos basically undefeat-
ed if you dont count the NFL team (De
La Salle) across the Bay, and theyre play-
ing football, theyre playing great

Best Bets
South City (1-0, 2-3) at
Menlo School (1-0, 5-0), 3 p.m.
The Warriors won a wild 36-28 deci-
sion over Sequoia last week. The
Knights cruised past Woodside 43-12.
South City held Menlo to just 21
points in a 41-21 win over the Knights
last year. This game features the
nearly unstoppable Menlo offense
against a virtually unmovable South
City defense. After managing only
one touchdown in its two previous
games combined, the Warriors found
the end zone ve times against Sequoia
last week. South City had to recover
a Sequoia fumble to beat the
Cherokees. Menlo has the highest-
scoring offense in the PAL, scoring
more than 52 points a game. QB
Jack Heneghan torched the Woodside
defense last week, throwing for 295
yards and four touchdowns. For the
year, Heneghan has thrown 10 TD
passes against just one interception.
Menlos defense is as good as the
offense. The Knights are allowing just
over 12 points a game.
Sacred Heart Prep (1-0, 5-0) at
Terra Nova (0-0, 2-3), 7 p.m.
The Gators shut down Burlingame
last week, 10-0. The Tigers are coming
off a bye. They lost a 34-28 shootout to
Inderkum-Sacramento two weeks ago.
Last year, Terra Nova outlasted SHP
44-30 in a game that saw the two teams
combine for 977 yards of offense. In
ve games this season, the Gators have
allowed a total of nine points
including three straight shutouts.
Terra Nova amassed 315 yards of total
offense against Inderkum, but only 49
came on the ground. Tigers QB
Kren Spain threw the ball 51 times two
weeks ago, completing 31 passes for
266 yards and two touchdowns. The
Terra Nova defense is allowing an aver-
age of 24 points per game this season.
Mills (0-0, 2-2-1) at
Carlmont (0-1, 1-4), 7 p.m.
The Vikings were off last week. They
were blasted 40-0 by Menlo School
two weeks ago. The Scots came up
short against San Mateo, 20-13.
Carlmont cruised to a 35-6 win over
Mills in this matchup last year. Mills
managed 128 yards of total offense
against Menlo two weeks ago. The

WASHINGTON The Washington
Nationals signed Jayson Werth to show them
how to win. His game-ending homer Thursday
night extended their surprising season.
Werth led off the bottom of the ninth inning
by driving Lance Lynns 13th pitch into the
left-eld stands to give the Nationals a 2-1
victory over the defending World Series
champion St. Louis Cardinals and force a
Game 5 in their NL division series.
As he circled the bases, Werth raised his
right index nger in a No. 1 gesture, while
the announced crowd of 44,392 roared with
delight. The other Nationals raced out of the
dugout to greet Werth, who tossed his red bat-
ting helmet high in the air before jumping on
home plate and being enveloped by a bounc-
ing collection of thrilled teammates.
The best-of-ve series will end Friday night
in Washington, with the winner advancing to
face the San Francisco Giants in the NL cham-
pionship series.
The homer was Werths first with the
Nationals but 14th of his career in the post-
season. He won the 2008 World Series and a
string of division titles with the Philadelphia
Phillies before moving to Washington as a free
agent before last season on a $126 million
contract that stunned much of baseball.
He gets a ton of credit for helping steer a
quick turnaround: The Nationals lost 100
games in 2008 and 2009, but led the majors
with 98 wins and won their division this year.
Werths shot provided a sudden end to a
classic postseason contest lled with tremen-
dous pitching. Each team managed only three
Lynn, usually a starter for St. Louis but a
reliever in these playoffs, was making his
third appearance of this series. He was the
wild-card Cardinals third pitcher and
faced only one batter.
Cardinals batters made eight consecutive
outs via strikeout against three Nationals
pitchers: Jordan Zimmermann, Tyler Clippard
and Drew Storen, who threw the top of the
ninth and got the win.
Nats force a Game 5
NEW YORK With midnight approach-
ing, the Baltimore Orioles bats awoke for one
more improbable rally.
Now they have a last shot to nally overtake
the New York Yankees.
J.J. Hardy hit an RBI double in the 13th
inning and Baltimore bounced back from a
demoralizing loss to outlast the Yankees 2-1
Thursday night, forcing a deciding Game 5 in
the AL division series.
After splitting 22 games this year, it all
comes down this: a winner-take-all game for a
spot in the AL championship series.
Game 1 winner CC Sabathia was set to
pitch the deciding game for the Yankees.
Orioles manager Buck Showalter had not
announced his starter.
The Orioles were 0 for 8 with runners in
scoring position until Hardy doubled off
David Phelps with one out to score Manny
Machado. Phelps had relieved in the 12th
after Joba Chamberlain was hit by a ying
broken bat, forcing him to leave with a
bruised right elbow.
Jim Johnson bounced back from allowing
Raul Ibanezs pinch-hit homer in the ninth
inning Wednesday to earn his second save in
the series with a perfect 13th.
Hours after learning Joe Girardi had kept
quiet that his father died last Saturday, the
Yankees couldnt rally late. This time, Girardi
called upon Eric Chavez to pinch hit for
slumping Alex Rodriguez. He lined out to
third base to end it.
Baltimores win pushed all four division
series to ve games for the rst time since the
round began in 1995.
The Orioles have been pursuing the
Yankees all season, cutting a 10-game decit
in July to zero in early September. Baltimore
and New York were tied 10 times atop the
East in the final month but the Yankees
wrapped up the division on the nal night of
the regular season.
After dropping Game 1 , the Orioles
rebounded with another one-run win in a sea-
son in which they had the best record in the
majors in such games at 29-9. But they lost in
stunning fashion in 12 innings Wednesday
night, when Ibanez homered twice in his two
at-bats after pinch-hitting for Rodriguez.
The team that caught the Yankees in
September didnt rattle, though.
They came right back Thursday for their
rst win in extras against the Yankees this
Orioles win in the 13th

U.S. knows it needs wins
in World Cup qualifying
With the World Cup qualifying standings a
mess, the U.S. national team has found a way
to simplify things: win and win.
There are other ways the U.S. could reach
the nal round of qualifying for the 2014
World Cup in Brazil, but the Americans are
xating now on the route that sounds easiest
but will be the most difcult.
If the Americans win their next two games,
starting with a road test against Antigua and
Barbuda on Friday night, they will move on
no matter what happens in the other remaining
Group A matchups.
Sputter in those games, though, and the
Americans could be ousted long before any-
one expected.
Its been a challenging few days already for
the Americans, who summoned 24 players
into camp for these matches the game at
Antigua is followed by one in Kansas City,
Kan., on Tuesday night against Guatemala. By
the time the plane left Miami for Antigua on
Thursday morning, that group was pared to
20, after Landon Donovan (knee), Brek Shea
(abdominal), Edgar Castillo (foot) and Fabian
Johnson (u) were ruled out by injury and ill-
Johnson should be healthy enough to play
Tuesday. Donovan, Shea and Castillo will not
play in either match.
We play in big games every week, U.S.
goalkeeper Tim Howard said. I dont think
anyones really worried or nervous. Weve got
winnable games. Whether we win them or not,
well see.
The U.S., Guatemala and Jamaica all have
seven points in the standings (three for a win,
one for a tie, none for a loss) through four
matches. Antigua and Barbuda has one point,
and if the qualifying round ended after four
matches, the Americans and Guatemalans
would advance based on goal differential.

Thankfully, theyre in our league and we have another opportunity

Every play will be crucial Saturday afternoon. Consider that in the

ence of about two per game.

like Bellarmine, it generally comes down to a a couple of key
With the way Serra has gone about handling its business in 2012,
it appears there isnt a more ideal time to break their ve-game los-

dent for this, or any WCAL game for that matter.
Winning makes you soft,Walsh said. And the fact that were 5-
0 basically makes it harder and harder and harder to achieve true
humility. But, as people and power and prestige keep being
heaped upon us with each win, that becomes more and more chal-
lenging. And when an opponent as daunting as Bellarmine is com-
ing to our stadium, hopefully we can continue to approach our team
in that way, from a spiritual perspective, which enables us to look
within as opposed to getting caught up in the friction of information
from the outside. I believe if we can accomplish that, then regardless
of the scoreboard, then well be able to accomplish something on

CONCORD, N.C. AJ Allmendinger returned from an
early morning workout to nd a slew of missed calls and text
messages on his phone.
I thought this is either something good, or something real-
ly, really bad, Allmendinger said.
It was really good news for Allmendinger.
Phoenix Racing has grabbed Allmendinger to drive the No.
51 Chevrolet this weekend as part of the domino effect from
Dale Earnhardt Jr.s concussion. Its the first time
Allmendinger has been in a car since his July 7 suspension for
failing a random drug test, and comes a week after he spoke
briey with Phoenix owner James Finch at Talladega in
Allmendingers rst trip to a NASCAR race.
I talked to Finch for about three minutes this morning,
Allmendinger said Thursday. He started to tell me what the
deal was and I was like, Man, its all good. Ill come drive this
weekend, and if you like me, you like me. And if not, its OK.
Its all about taking it as it comes right now.
Kurt Busch had been driving for Phoenix this season, but left
the team this week to get an early start on next years partner-
ship with Furniture Row Racing. That displaced Regan Smith
in the Furniture Row ride, and Finch planned on using Smith
for at least Saturday nights race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Then a doctor decided Earnhardt should not race the next
two weeks because of a concussion he suffered in the 25-car
wreck at Talladega on Sunday. Team owner Rick Hendrick
called Finch late Wednesday and asked for Smith, who is a
candidate to run for the Nationwide championship next season
at JR Motorsports.
Smith received a text message at 7 a.m. on Thursday morn-
ing from Earnhardt crew chief Steve Letarte, who informed
Smith hed be driving the car of NASCARs most popular driv-
er the next two weekends.
Once he accepted, Phoenix Racing scrambled to nd
Its the break Allmendinger has been waiting for. He has said
he tested positive for Adderall, a prescription drug typically
used to treat attention deficit disorder, and completed
NASCARs Road to Recovery program. The series reinstat-
ed him last month, but he was dropped by Penske Racing after
his backup B urine sample also failed a drug test.
Still looking for work for 2013, Allmendinger wasnt sure if
anyone would take another chance on him.
He is not sure how rusty he will be this weekend.
Ive just got to get comfortable, Allmendinger said. This
is the longest I havent driven a race car in at least six years. In
the offseason, Im always driving a Rolex car and our
(NASCAR) offseason is only two months, anyway. So Im a
little nervous, trying to get back into the ow of things.
I dont expect to set the world on re. Im just trying to get
used to it again, progress through the weekend, limit my mis-
takes, nish all 500 miles and wherever that puts us, it puts us.
The rst issue the team encountered was a big one the car
had been tted Monday for Smith, and Allmendinger couldnt
reach the pedals when he got inside the cockpit on Thursday.
It forced the lean Phoenix crew to scramble to move the throt-
tle and make the adjustments needed to get Allmendinger on
the track in time for rst practice.

leaps and bounds since last season.
Ian Santos had a big game for El
Camino last week, scoring three
touchdowns. El Camino leads
the Lake Division in scoring aver-
age with nearly 29 points a game.
The Colts also have the divisions
best defense, giving up just under
15 points per contest.
San Mateo (1-0, 2-3) at
Hillsdale (0-1, 0-5), 7 p.m.
The Bearcats opened division
play with a 20-13 victory over
Carlmont. The Knights were domi-
nated by El Camino, 28-0. A city
of San Mateo showdown, Hillsdale
beat San Mateo in a shootout last
season, 42-33. San Mateo coach
Jeff Scheller used to coach the
Hillsdale team, while Hillsdale
coach Mike Parodi is San Mateos
former head man. After losing
their rst three games to start the
season, the Bearcats are now riding
a two-game winning streak. RB
Line Latu scored on runs of 51 and
46 yards last week the former of
which proved to be the game-win-
ning score with under six minutes to
play. Hillsdales offense contin-
ues to be the Knights own worst
enemy. The Knights have had three
straight games in which opposing
defenses returned at least one
turnover for a score. Hillsdale is
averaging just over 12 points a
game, while allowing 38.

Half Moon Bay (0-0, 1-4) at
Aragon (0-1, 4-1), 3 p.m.
The Cougars are coming off a bye
week. They were beaten by Sequoia
two weeks ago, 28-6. The Dons suf-
fered a devastating 28-23 loss to
Menlo-Atherton last week.
When these two teams met last year,
the Ocean Division crown was on
the line. Half Moon Bay won 21-20
as the Cougars blocked a game-win-
ning eld goal attempt. Despite
losing a heartbreaker to M-A last
week, the Dons added a new dimen-
sion to their offense a legitimate
passing game. QB Nat Blood threw
the ball 37 times for 276 yards.
WR Aldo Severson caught 12 pass-
es for 161 yards in the loss last
week. The 28 points allowed was
the most given up by the Aragon
defense this season.
Burlingame (0-1, 2-3) at
Menlo-Atherton (1-0, 3-2), 7 p.m.
The Panthers were shut out 10-0
by Sacred Heart Prep a week ago.
The Bears hung on to beat Aragon,
28-23. Last year, M-A manhan-
dled Burlingame, 35-13.
Burlingame has shown it has to be
nearly perfect on offense to score.
Last week, penalties or plays for
negative yards killed the Panthers
momentum. The Burlingame
roster has been decimated by
injuries. The Panthers started sum-
mer practice with 43 players. They
are now down to 29. M-A RB
Tasi Teu is one of the hardest run-
ners in the PAL. He nished with 87
yards and a score on 16 carries last
week. The 28 points represent a
season high for the M-A offense.
Sequoia (0-1, 4-1) at
Jefferson (0-0, 1-4), 7 p.m.
The Cherokees were stunned by
South City, 36-28 last week. The
Indians are coming off a bye. They
were buried by El Camino 54-0 two
weeks ago. Sequoia QB Mike
Taylor rushed for four touchdowns
last week. The Cherokees were
held to a season-low rushing last
week, nishing with 130 yards on
42 carries. Jefferson has been
shut out in its last two games, losing
by a combined score of 96-0. The
Indians have scored a total of 21
points in ve games this season.
Kings Academy (0-0, 0-5) at
Woodside (0-1, 2-3), 7 p.m.
The Knights had a bye last week.
They fell to San Mateo two weeks
ago. The Wildcats were whipped
43-12 by Menlo School last week.
After four straight shutouts to
begin the season, Kings Academy
nally got on the scoreboard for the
rst time this year with a touchdown
against San Mateo. The Knights
rushed for 189 yards last week, a
season high. Looks like Kings
Academys grand plan of running a
spread offense has fallen by the
wayside. The Knights have thrown
for a total of 156 yards this season.
Woodside saw its two-game win-
ning streak snapped with the loss
last week. Josh Holmans 82-
yard scoring strike to Tommy Cook
gave Woodside a brief 6-0 lead over
The Rest
receptions, including at least three
catches in each of San Franciscos ve
games. He also has rushed for 57 yards
on two reverses after rushing for
minus-10 yards during his career with
the Giants.
Ive had as many (carries) in four
months here as in four years in New
York, Manningham said Thursday. I
feel like theyre putting me in a good
position to move the chains and make
plays. And its not like I left a good
team and went to a bad team.
Manningham played a key role in
the Giants Super Bowl run last year,
catching a 17-yard pass against the
49ers for New Yorks nal touchdown
during a 20-17 overtime victory for the
NFC title. He also had a 38-yard recep-
tion late in the fourth quarter to spark
New Yorks winning touchdown drive
against New England in the Super
Manningham made an impressive
play on the latter catch, tip-toeing
along the sidelines for what 49ers
offensive coordinator Greg Roman
called, one of the biggest plays in
Super Bowl history.
Manningham has added an element
of speed and shiftiness to a San
Francisco passing game that is
improved by his presence. He com-
pletely turned around a Buffalo
defender last week to get wide open in
the end zone and catch a 10-yard pass
from Alex Smith for Manninghams
rst touchdown with the 49ers.
Mario is an outstanding receiver,
very fast, very good along the sideline,
New York coach Tom Coughlin said.
So you see what has transpired with
his addition.
It remains unclear whether the
Giants will face Jacobs, a key player on
two Super Bowl championship teams
during his seven seasons in New York.
Jacobs started 48 games and rushed
for 4,849 yards and 56 touchdowns
with the Giants, who released him ear-
lier this year when Jacobs declined to
take a signicant pay cut. He later
signed a one-year, $1.575 million deal
with San Francisco.

We have to make our fair share of
plays, get turnovers and get the ball
back to our offense. Thats really the
only way to slow them down.
The Raiders are again relying on a
patchwork lineup in their secondary.
Huff was moved from free safety
after injuries sidelined starters Ron
Bartell and Shawntae Spencer and
the backups struggled to pick up the
slack. Pat Lee, Oaklands other start-
ing cornerback, had started only one
game in three previous seasons
before replacing Bartell in Week 2.
Both have had their share of prob-
lems in coverage, something theyll
have to improve signicantly going
against the pass-happy Falcons.
Gonzalez leads the NFL with 39
catches while White and Jones have
combined for 57 receptions, 794
yards and seven touchdowns.
Youve got to pick your poison at
times, Raiders coach Dennis Allen
said. Theyre very explosive on the
outside with their receivers.
Obviously, Tony still works the mid-
dle of the eld extremely well. Then
if you play for the pass too much,
theyve still got a good running
Oakland is seventh in the NFL
against the pass but the Raiders are
one of only two teams without an
interception. Detroit is the other.
Allen, the teams rst defensive-
minded head coach since John
Madden was hired by late owner Al
Davis in 1969, and his staff have
stressed to players the need to create
more turnovers.
What weve done schematically
is try to put our guys in the best posi-
tion to be successful, Allen said.
We cant get discouraged and weve
got to continue to compete all the
way until the end. We were able to do
that one game this year. Well see
what were able to do this week.

Posey hit the third grand slam in
Giants postseason history on
Thursday, and San Francisco pulled
off an unprecedented revival, mov-
ing into the championship series
with a 6-4 victory over the
Cincinnati Reds.
You dont want to be in a lose-
and-youre-out scenario, reliever
Jeremy Affeldt said, wearing a brace
on his left wrist so he didnt hurt it
in the champagne-flavored club-
house celebration. Weve been in
that situation for three days. Were
probably going to sleep well

Game 1 of the NL championship
series will be Sunday, either in
Washington against the Nationals or
in San Francisco vs. the Cardinals.
In the meantime, the Giants will
stay in Cincinnati until their next
opponent is determined Friday night
when the Cards and Nats play Game
The Giants became the rst NL
team to overcome a 2-0 decit in the
division series, which began in
1995. Major League Baseballs
changed playoff format this season
allowed them to become the rst to
take a best-of-ve by winning the
last three on the road.
Poseys second career grand slam
off Mat Latos put the Giants up 6-0
in the fth and sparked a joyous
scrum in the San Francisco dugout.
The ball smacked off the front of the
upper deck in left eld, just above
Latos name on the video board.
For the rst time in the series, the
Giants could exhale.
I dont think anybody gave up,
Posey said.
Will Clark, in the 1989 NLCS,
and Chuck Hiller, in the 1962 World
Series, hit the other Giants slams in
the postseason.
Matt Cain and the bullpen held
on, with more help from Posey. The
All-Star catcher threw out Jay Bruce
at third base to snuff out a sixth-
inning rally that cut it to 6-3. The
Giants had a pair of diving catches
that preserved the lead in the eighth.
There was more drama in the
ninth. Ryan Ludwick singled home
a run off Sergio Romo. With two
runners aboard, Romo fanned Scott
Rolen to end it.

after winning the Cy Young award

But Verlander was sharp from the

outs as the As never really threatened

after his double in the rst, Brandon
Moss was out trying to advance on a

Jarrod Parker, one of a record three
rookie pitchers to start in this series,
pitched well again but proved to be
no match for Verlander for a second
time this series. After being hurt by
his own error in a Game 1 loss, it was
two wild pitches in a two-run third
that helped do in Parker this time.
Omar Infante led off the inning
with a single and advanced on a wild
pitch. Austin Jackson followed with
an RBI double and went to third on
Quintin Berrys sacrice. Jackson
scored on a second wild pitch, giving
Detroit a 2-0 lead.
Parker left with runners on rst and
third with one out in the seventh and
sat in the dugout with a towel draped
over his head in frustration. That only
grew deeper when the bullpen those
two runners and two others to score
that inning to make it 6-0.
The As were never even supposed
to be in this position after trading top
starters Gio Gonzalez and Trevor
Cahill and closer Andrew Bailey in
the offseason as they were building
for the future.
That future came quicker than any-
one expected as Oakland overcame a
major league-low payroll of $59.5
million to beat out the big-spending
Texas Rangers and Los Angeles
Angels for the AL West title. They
wrapped up that title with a three-
game sweep of Texas in the nal reg-
ular season series, bringing a rare
excitement and intensity to an out-of-
date stadium that has struggled to
attract fans in recent years.
That carried over to the postseason
as the As staved off elimination the
previous two nights, including the
dramatic comeback from two runs
down in the ninth inning Wednesday
to force Game 5.
The As were hoping to ride the
momentum from that three-run rally
to win a postseason series for just the
second time since 1990.

come a two-run decit in the ninth

tion game and went on to win the

C-Max Hybrid: A Ford challenges Prius
By Ann M. Job
Fords newest gasoline-electric vehicle, the
C-Max Hybrid, is so roomy, stylish and smart,
its likely to attract buyers before they see the
noteworthy 47 miles-per-gallon fuel rating on
the window sticker.
New for 2013, the ve-passenger, ve-door
C-Max Hybrid hatchback has a federal gov-
ernment fuel economy rating of 47/47 mpg
city/highway that beats the 44/44-mpg rating
of the 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid and the
44/40-mpg rating of the 2012 Toyota Prius v.
Only the long-running regular Toyota
Prius, with a government rating of 51/48 mpg,
is higher.
But where the Prius round-nosed, plain
styling has not changed appreciably in recent
years, Fords C-Max Hybrid has fresh, mod-
ern looks.
The car features a comfortably raised driv-
ing position for good views out, optional high-
grade amenities and smart tech displays and
aids to help drivers get the most from every
tank of gas.
As an example, the C-Max Hybrids Brake
Coach monitors the amount of energy a driver
recoups during stops.
Did the car gather 65 percent of the brake
energy in that last stop, or did the driver apply
the pedal just right so 95 percent of the brake
energy could be saved and stored in the
onboard battery? Brake Coach knows and
tells via a dashboard display at each stop.
Best of all, the C-Max Hybrid comes to the
United States with a starting retail price thats
just a bit above long-running and smaller

$1,350 below the Toyota Prius v, which, as a
van-like vehicle, is the closest direct competi-
tor to the exible, people- and cargo-hauling
C-Max hatchback.

A driver does not plug in the C-Max
Hybrid, because electric power is generated
onboard, stored and then routed out of the
onboard battery pack.
But a plug-in version of the C-Max, called
the C-Max Energi, is slated to debut later in
the model year.
The 2012 Toyota Prius gas-electric hybrid
non-plug-in model has a starting retail price of
$24,795, while Toyotas introduced-for-2012
Prius v ve door carries a starting retail price
of $27,345. The 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid
sedan has a starting MSRP, including destina-
tion charge, of $24,990. Toyota and Honda
have not announced 2013 pricing yet.
Ford Motor Co. was the rst U.S.-based
automaker to venture into mass-produced gas-
electric hybrids years ago with its Escape
But while the Escape Hybrid was a version
of the regular gasoline-powered Escape sport
utility vehicle, the C-Max Hybrid is Fords
rst hybrid-only line of vehicles.
Given the attributes of the C-Max Hybrid, it
could prove to be the biggest competitor to s
Japan-built Prius line, which is the top-selling
gas-electric hybrid in .
Built in , the C-Max Hybrid looks more
compact than it is. At 14.5 feet long, its short-
er, bumper to bumper, than a regular Prius and
is about the same length as a Honda Civic
Hybrid sedan.
But with total passenger volume of nearly
100 cubic feet and maximum cargo volume of
52.6 cubic feet with rear seats folded at, the
C-Max Hybrid easily bests the Prius and Civic
sedan in interior and cargo volume.
For example, with tall-riding back seats that
provide more rear-seat headroom and legroom
than the Prius and Civic sedan, the C-Max
Hybrid has pleasant passenger room, even for
back-seat riders.
The tall ceiling keeps passengers from feel-
ing conned and helps make entry and exit
stress-free. Passengers in front and rear seats
dont drop down but merely turn and set upon
the nicely positioned seat cushions.
s Prius v, which debuted in the 2012 model
year, has a longer body than the C-Max, but is
shorter in height, and cant match the C-Max
Hybrids front-seat headroom of 41 inches
and second-row headroom of 39.4 inches.
The Prius v does offer more total cargo
room 67.3 cubic feet.
But the C-Max styling, inside and out,
appears to have more attention to high-line
details and doesnt feel like a large, plastic-
lled box.
Dont expect a speedster, though. Like the
Prius, the C-Max utilizes a four-cylinder
engine with Atkinson cycle, so its tuned for
fuel economy, not zippy performance.
The electric motor provides zip at startups
and contributes along the way at other speeds,
when needed.
What was most impressive is how seamless-
ly the gas engine and electric motor worked
together, meshing power without a hiccup or
hesitation, in the test C-Max.

LEAGUE, 1936-1951, AT SAN
Small, hand-held 35mm cameras,
introduced in the 1920s, enabled a
new kind of spontaneous photogra-
phy, at once casual and purposeful.
In the streets of Depression-era
New York City, the Photo League, a
group of young and idealistic docu-
mentary photographers, most of
them first-generation Jewish
Americans, focused their cameras
on a world of ordinary people and
the everyday. Their work, with titles
such as Shoemakers Lunch and
Salvation Army Lassie in Front of a
Woolworth Store, exposed issues of
class, poverty and racial inequality,
and revealed a new aesthetic shaped
by a deeply personal relationship to
their urban environment. During its
15-year existence (19361951), the
Photo League mirrored monumen-
tal shifts in the world, starting with
the Depression, moving through
World War II and ending with the
Red Scare. The Radical Camera:
New Yorks Photo League, 1936-
1951 at the Contemporary Jewish
Museum is the rst comprehensive
museum survey in three decades to
reassess the inuential groups his-
tory and artistic signicance.
In 1930, the Film and Photo
League was founded as an offshoot
of Workers International Relief (a
leftist German and Russian aid
organization), and produced some
of the rst social documentary lms
in America. The economic turmoil
of the 1930s brought enormous
social and political upheaval. In
response, the government of
President Franklin D. Roosevelt
instituted massive relief programs
known as the New Deal and funded
unprecedented art projects that
employed artists, making their
work accessible to a broad public.
In 1936, the still photography mem-
bers of the Film and Photo League
broke away from the lmmakers to
form the Photo League. The League
offered basic and advanced classes
in photography at a time when there
were no such courses in colleges or
trade schools. More than anything
else, though, the League was a
gathering place for photographers
to share and experience their com-
mon artistic and social interests,
which focused on the urban envi-
ronment and ordinary people. They
explored their own New York
neighborhoods, street-by-street,
camera at the ready. Their work was
fostered by a picture-hungry world
of illustrated magazines such as
Life (founded in the same year as
the League) and Look, newspapers
and books. Their goal was to pro-
vide evidence of an impoverished
community in peril and their work
frequently depicted tenement
facades, shoeshine boys, protests
and portraits of the poor.
In addition to their urban focus,
Leaguers began to spread out, pho-
tographing in rural America and
Latin America and, with the coun-
trys rapid transition from New
Deal recovery to war mobilization
in the early 1940s, in Europe as
well. The League rallied around
war-related projects and half the
membership enlisted. More women
became members, and the exhibi-
tion highlights the work of many,
such as Vivian Cherry and Sonia
Handelman Meyer, who found rare
access and recognition at the
League. At League headquarters,
Crazy Camera Balls raised funds
and fostered a sense of community.
Photo Hunts competitions in
which Leaguers scoured the city to
complete random, sometimes ludi-
crous assignments were leg-
endary. Postwar prosperity replaced
economic hardship and the threat of
global fascism as the turbulent
1940s drew to a close.
With the advent of the Cold War,
anti-communist sentiment intensi-
ed as the Red Scare gripped the
nation and leftist politics became
suspect. On Dec. 5, 1947, the U.S.
Attorney General blacklisted the
Photo League as an organization
considered totalitarian, fascist,
communist or subversive. Being
blacklisted meant more than a dam-
aged reputation: members faced
loss of work, criminal investigation
and even imprisonment.
Membership and revenues dwin-
dled and the group was ostracized.
By 1951, the Photo League could
no longer sustain itself, and it of-
cially closed its doors. In the short
time it existed, however, its more
than 300 members, including some
of the most noted photographers of
the mid-20th century Berenice
Abbott, Consuelo Kanaga, Lisette
Model, Aaron Siskind and Weegee

of its executive producers. His stated mission
is to dramatize a hideous scourge and a shat-
tered society, not to repair or even explain
them. Our show, he has stated, is about a
group of people dealing with the fallout.
So The Walking Dead is an anomaly among
TV series, whose heroes and narratives are most-
ly aspirational. Not here. The only aspiration for
the Walking Dead survivors is to survive
another day. And that is never guaranteed, as
shown by the series demonstrated willingness to
kill off some of its most popular characters.
In short, The Walking Dead may be the
bleakest TV series ever aired.
Also one of the most leisurely. In the best
tradition of suspense-building thrillers, The
Walking Dead practices, then doubles down
on, a meditative pace where tension builds
while little is said and not much happens
that is, until it does.
On the season premiere, Rick (series star
Andrew Lincoln) and his band (including co-
stars Sarah Wayne Callies, Norman Reedus,
Steven Yeun, Emily Kinney and Scott Wilson)
are on the run from their previous refuge, a
farm overtaken by zombies months before.
Sample dialogue:
We got no place left to go.
Whatd you say, about 150 head (of zom-
That was last week. Could be twice that by
If this group joins with that one, they could
spill out this way.
So were blocked.
Then they come upon a prison in the
Georgia countryside. They plot to take it over
from the zombies that infest it. It could prove
to be a safe haven against further assaults.
But nothing is simple. Or quick. Theres
lots of anguished talk and furrowed brows.
The episode even makes room for a plaintive
lullaby sung over a crackling campre.
Then, in a burst, plenty happens. There
have been Walking Dead episodes that
shortchanged the viewer with too few zom-
bies on display. And there have been episodes
with escalating dread but no dramatic release.
This is not one of them. Count this episode
packed with a zombie skirmish, a terrible
twist and a bonus complication among the
series most unforgettable.
And looking ahead to next weeks episode:
Necessity proves to be the mother of inven-
tion. One of the survivors hits upon perhaps
the most macabre problem-solving scheme
since season one, when Rick smeared himself
with hunks of zombie carcass to pass unde-
tected through a zombie mob. Yuck.
Identifying with the plight of Rick and his
fellow refugees is clearly a blast for the fans
of The Walking Dead, who last season
averaged nearly 7 million weekly. The
Walking Dead puts you with this tattered
band as you imagine yourself under similar
threat and joined in the struggle that may
never end.
The zombies remain a threat not through
craftiness or villainy (they, stripped of their
humanity, are capable of neither), but instead
due to their multitudes and plodding persist-

The success is often lost on the cast, who
shoot on location in rural Georgia, away from
the ego-enhancing realm of Hollywood.
Theyre reminded of the popularity when con-
fronted by thousands of fans at San Diegos
Comic-Con or motivated by the gasoline
that is fan letters and photos posted inside a
makeshift shrine erected in the trailer of actor
Norman Reedus (Daryl).
Its a solid pocket we stay in, said Steven
Yeun, who plays nimble Glenn. I got a
glimpse of it today when I was sitting in the
hotel room. I looked out from the balcony, and
Im like, Where am I?! We just came from
shooting a terrible, gnarly scene in the middle
of the woods just yelling and guttural stuff
and now all of a sudden Im at the Four
The third season, which premieres Sunday
at 9 p.m. EDT, nds the survivors coming
across the too-good-to-be-true town of
Woodbury, a zombie-free enclave thats led by
a cutthroat character dubbed the Governor.
British actor David Morrissey, who was cast
as the iconic villain from the comics earlier
this year, is downplaying the Governors
MUHAHAHA! ruthlessness.
I think, creatively, youd hit a ceiling very
quickly if you did that in the TV show, said
Morrissey. You have to give him complexity.
You have to give him a sense of motivation
and why hes doing these things.
The new season will also feature katana-
wielding fan-favorite Michonne, who saved
straggler Andrea at the end of last season with
her chained-up zombie sidekicks in tow.
Michonne actress Danai Gurira said the char-
acters interpersonal relationships with the
other survivors will send her on a bit of a dif-
ferent journey than the Michonne of the
However, the action in this seasons rst
two episodes is focused squarely on the prison
glimpsed at the end of last season after Rick
and son Carl took down a zombied version
of Ricks best friend, Shane, who continually
clashed with his buddy about how to exist in a
world where walkers the shows pre-
ferred term for zombies seem to lurk
around every corner.
After making it through the winter, the sur-
vivors attempt to transform the well-secured
prison into their new homestead. Callies,
whose Lori is further along in her pregnancy
this season, said the addition of Woodbury and
the prison adds a new dimension to the story-
telling, especially now that the characters are
accustom to taking down walkers.
Theres a sense of what it wouldve been
like if Shane had run the show from the begin-
ning, said Callies. Its two mature visions of
what this world can look like now: one with
Ricks group; one with the Governors group.
They stand in stark contrast to one another,
and you get a real clear sense of what each
leaders decisions have cost their people.
Kirkman, who serves as an executive pro-
ducer on the show, promised the third season,
which will be split in half, will feature some
surprises that even the most die-hard
Walking Dead fans wont see coming. (The
series has continually veered from the source
material, whether its drawing out story lines
or killing off characters earlier than in the
We challenge each other, said show run-
ner Glen Mazzara. We ask each other ques-
tions. If something that feels too big, not plau-
sible or like a jump-the-shark moment, we
have to gure out how to do it.
The Walking Dead masterminds are also
pushing their realistic take on the zombie
apocalypse into other avenues: an episodic
game from Telltale Games based on the
comic; a rst-person shooter game due from
Activision focusing on Daryl, who doesnt
appear in the comics; and mazes at Universal
Studios Halloween Horror Nights in
California and Florida.

tric Walking Dead novels. I look at like, If

By Judy Richter
Most Americans like to think of them-
selves as nonracist at least in public
but the dirty little secret is that racism
is still woven into the fabric of our soci-
ety whether intentionally or not.
Playwright David Mamet brings this
issue to the forefront in Race, the 90-
minute, one-act drama being staged by
San Jose Stage Company. Sexism and
ageism also gure into this provocative
2009 work.
The action takes place in the law ofce
(set and lights by Michael Palumbo) of
Jack Lawson (artistic director Randall
King), who is white, and Henry Brown
(L. Peter Callender), who is black. A
wealthy, white, married man, Charles
Strickland (David Arrow), comes to their
ofce saying he has been falsely accused
of rape and asking them to defend him.
His alleged victim is a much younger
black woman, who says the attack took
place in a hotel room.
Although the attorneys arent neces-
sarily interested in whether or not hes
guilty, they know that taking the case to
a jury trial could be tricky because
jurors will probably assume that hes
guilty, but they also dont want to
appear to be prejudiced against him.
Also guring into the attorneys discus-
sions is their attractive, young, black
associate, Susan (ZZ Moor). She has her
own opinions about the case and about
the ways black women view white men
and vice versa.
Like so many of Mamets plays, such
as Oleanna, Speed-the-Plow, the
Pulitzer-winning Glengarry Glen Ross
and others, there are no clear-cut
answers or resolutions. Ambiguity and
anger reign as the two partners and

Mo Yan won the 2012 Nobel prize for literature.
Chinese writer Yan wins
Nobel literature prize
By Alexa Olesen and Louise Nordstrom
BEIJING Novelist Mo Yan, this years Nobel Prize win-
ner for literature, is practiced in the art of challenging the sta-
tus quo without offending those who uphold it.
Mo, whose popular, sprawling, bawdy tales bring to life
rural China, is the rst Chinese winner of the literature prize
who is not a critic of the authoritarian government. And
Thursdays announcement by the Swedish Academy brought
an explosion of pride across Chinese social media.
The state-run national broadcaster, China Central
Television, reported the news moments later, and the ofcial
writers association, of which Mo is a vice chairman, lauded
the choice. But it also ignited renewed criticisms of Mo from
other writers as too willing to serve or too timid to confront a
government that heavily censors artists and authors, and pun-
ishes those who refuse to obey.
The reactions highlight the unusual position Mo holds in
Chinese literature. He is a genuinely popular writer who is
embraced by the Communist establishment but who also
dares, within careful limits, to tackle controversial issues like
forced abortion. His novel The Garlic Ballads, which depicts
a peasant uprising and ofcial corruption, was banned.
Hes one of those people whos a bit of a sharp point for the
Chinese ofcials, yet manages to keep his head above water,
said his longtime U.S. translator, Howard Goldblatt of the
University of Notre Dame. Thats a ne line to walk, as you
can imagine.
Typical of his ability to skirt the censors limitations, Mo
had retreated from Beijing in recent days to the rural eastern
village of Gaomi where he was raised and which is the back-
drop for much of his work.

Superintendent Tom Torlakson said in a pre-
pared statement. The incredible efforts of
teachers, administrators, school employees, par-
ents and students should serve as an inspiration
to us all. While theres still more work to do,
Californias schools have earned a vote of con-
API scores range from 200 to 1,000, with 200
being far below basic, 500 being below basic,
700 being basic, 875 being procient and 1,000
being advanced. The statewide API perform-
ance target for all schools is 800.
These data also show that schools and dis-
tricts in San Mateo County, as their counterparts
throughout the state, continue to be identied in
increasing numbers as failing to meet Adequate
Yearly Progress, or AYP, and consequently
being identied under program improvement,
said county Deputy Superintendent Gary
Waddell. While we take seriously the mission
of continually improving instruction in ways
that ensure that all children receive quality edu-
cational outcomes, we also know that the cur-
rent system of identication and remediation is
outdated and long overdue for rebenching and
Waddell added that as the state moves toward
full implementation of the statewide California
Common Core standards and new assessments,
schools can renew the commitment to continu-
ing improvement.
Gains and losses were widespread across San
Mateo County district schools.
North Star Academy in Redwood City con-
tinued to hold its position as the top scoring
school in the county with 990 a two-point
drop from last year. Hillsboroughs North
School, however, was only 1 point behind with
Test scores arent just numbers they tell
part of the story about our students, said
Redwood City Superintendent Jan Christensen.
The story behind the rise in test scores is that
our students are learning and achieving at a
higher level, and they are going into the next
grade more prepared. This lays a foundation
that will help them achieve success in high
school and beyond.
Forty-one schools in San Mateo County
scored more than 900 points, none of which
were high schools. All schools within the
Hillsborough City Elementary, Las Lomitas
Elementary, Menlo Park City Elementary and
Portola Valley Elementary school districts
scored over 900. When it comes to high
schools, Carlmont in Belmont stole the top spot
from Mills with a score of 877. Mills followed
with 870 and Burlingame at 869.
On the other end of the spectrum, Stanford
New School High School in Menlo Park
remained in the bottom spot countywide scor-
ing 638, which came with a 33-point gain from
last year.
Not meeting the standards can mean a loss of
funding or control for schools and school dis-
These thresholds of understanding slowly
increase with the objective that, by the 2013-14
school year, 100 percent of students at all
schools must score at the procient level or
Schools and districts can enter or continue to
be classied as needing program improvement
when one or more sub-groups fail to make
annual growth goals for two consecutive years.
Countywide, 43 schools and 14 school dis-
tricts are in program improvement at one level
or another.
Being in program improvement as well as
having a drop in score does not go unnoticed by
school ofcials. Notably, six schools in program
improvement El Granada Elementary in Half
Moon Bay, Sunset Ridge Elementary in
Pacica, Green Oaks Academy in East Palo
Alto, Kennedy Middle School and Roosevelt
Elementary in Redwood City, and Belle Air
Elementary in San Bruno will be eligible to
exit program improvement in the 2013-14
school year if all targets are met in 2013.
In San Bruno, Belle Air Principal Michael
Rothhammer pointed to a partnership with
Notre Dame de Namur University as making a
huge difference. By working together, each of
the schools 12 classrooms has both a teacher
and student teacher creating a lower teacher to
student ratio. There is also after-school tutorial
services provided by NDNU School of
Education undergraduate students to continue
to support student achievement.
In the San Mateo Union High School District,
three schools exited performance improvement.
We are seeing steady increases in our state
test results year-by-year, said Andy Parsons,
district associate superintendent for instruction.
This has come about by creating structures and
classes that support all students.
Parsons said the district has wonderful
teacher and site leaders. Also, efforts have
increased in recent years to support incoming
freshmen by working closer with elementary
school districts, he said.

other, Ryan said later to his rival, referring to
Democratic pressure on Biden to make up for
President Barack Obamas listless perform-
ance in last weeks debate with Mitt Romney.
There was nothing listless this time as the
69-year-old Biden sat next to the 42-year old
Wisconsin congressman on a stage at Centre
College in Kentucky.
Ninety minutes after the initial disagree-
ment over foreign policy, the two men clashed
sharply over steps to reduce federal decits.
The president likes to say he has a plan,
Ryan said, but in fact he gave a speech and
never backed it up with details.
Biden conceded Republicans indeed have a
plan, but he said if it were enacted, it would
have eviscerated all the things the middle
class care about.
The debate took place a little more than a
week after Obama and Romney met in the
rst of their three debates an encounter
that has fueled a Republican comeback in
opinion polls.
With Democrats eager for Biden to show
the spark the president lacked, he did so.
Unprompted, he brought up the video in
which Romney had said 47 percent of
Americans pay no federal income tax, view
themselves as victims and do not take respon-
sibility for their own lives.
Its about time they take responsibility
instead of signing pledges to avoid raising
taxes, Biden said of Romney, Ryan and the
The serial disagreements started immedi-
ately after the smiles and handshakes of the
Ryan said in the debates opening moments
that U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens had been
denied sufcient security by administration
ofcials. Stevens died in a terrorist attack on
the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11.
Not a single thing he said is accurate,
Democrat Biden shot back.
Republicans and Democrats alike have said
in recent days the presidential race now
approximates the competitive situation in
place before the two political conventions.
The two men are generally separated by a
point or two in national public opinion polls
and in several battleground states, with
Obama holding a slender lead in Ohio and
Both the president and Romney cam-
paigned in battleground states during the day
before ceding the spotlight to their political
partners for the evening.
In Kentucky, Biden and Ryan seemed
primed for a showdown from their opening
moments on stage, and neither seemed will-
ing to let the other have the nal word. They
interrupted each other repeatedly and
moderator Martha Raddatz of ABC as well.
With Democrats eager for Biden to show
the spark the president lacked, he did so.
Unprompted, he brought up the video in
which Romney had said 47 percent of
Americans pay no federal income tax, view
themselves as victims and do not take respon-
sibility for their own lives.
Its about time they take responsibility
instead of signing pledges to avoid raising
taxes, Biden said of Romney, Ryan and the
But Ryan quickly turned to dreary econom-
ic statistics 23 million are struggling to
work, he said, and 15 percent of the country is
living in poverty. This is not what a real
recovery looks like.
Medicare was a ashpoint, as well. Ryan
said Obamas health care plan had diverted
$716 billion from the program for seniors and
created a new board that could deny care to
patients who need it.
Democrats havent put a credible solution
on the table, he said. Theyll tell you about
vouchers. Theyll say all these things to try to
scare people.
Biden quickly said that Ryan had authored
not one but two proposals in which seniors
would be given government payments that
might not cover the entirety of their care.
Otherwise, he said, the Romney-Ryan
approach wouldnt achieve the savings they
Unlike Obama, Biden had no qualms about
launching a personal attack on Romney.
After Ryan argued that Romneys plan
would pay for reduced tax rates by eliminat-
ing tax loopholes for the wealthy, Biden noted
that on a recent interview on CBS 60
Minutes, Romney defended the 14 percent
tax rate he pays on his $20 million income as
fair, even though its a lower rate than some
lower income taxpayers pay.
You think these guys are going to go out
there and cut those loopholes, Biden asked,
addressing the national TV audience.
Across 90 minutes, the two men agreed pre-
cisely once.
That was when Ryan, referring to the war in
Afghanistan, said the calendar was the same
each year. Biden agreed to that, but not to the
underlying point, which was that it was a mis-
take for Obama to have announced a date for
the withdrawal of the remainder of the U.S.
combat troops.
The ercest clash over foreign policy came
in the debates opening moments, when Ryan
cited events across the Middle East as well as
Stevens death in Libya as evidence that the
administrations foreign policy was unravel-
ing. The Republican also said the administra-
tion had failed to give Stevens the same level
of protection as the U.S. ambassador in Paris
Biden rebutted by saying that the budget
that Ryan authored as chairman of the House
Budget Committee had cut the administra-
tions funding request for diplomatic security
by $300 million.
On the nations economy, both men were
asked directly when his side could reduce
unemployment to 6 percent from the current
7.8 percent. Both men sidestepped.
Biden repeated the presidents contention
that the nation is moving in the right direc-
tion, while Ryan stated the Republican view
that economic struggle persists even though
Democrats had control of both houses of
Congress during the first two years of
Obamas term.
Where are the 5 million green jobs we
were told would be created? Ryan said to
Obama campaigned in Florida during the
day. Mocking recent changes in Romneys
rhetoric, he told a rally in Miami rally, After
running for more than a year in which he
called himself severely conservative, Mitt
Romney is trying to convince you that he was
severely kidding.
Romney visited with 93-year-old Billy
Graham in North Carolina before speaking to
an evening rally in Asheville, N.C. Prayer is
the most helpful thing you can do for me, he
told the evangelist.
For Biden, Thursday nights debate was his
rst since the 2008 campaign, when he shared
a stage with Sarah Palin, then John McCains
running mate.
Ryan spars frequently with Democrats dur-
ing debates on legislation on the House oor
and in the House Budget Committee, which
he chairs, but not in a one-on-one encounter
covering 90 minutes and a virtually unlimited
range of topics.
For all their differences, the two men
shared a common objective, to advance the
cause of their tickets in a close race for the
presidency and avoid a gaffe that might
forever seal their place in the history of
Romneys choice of Ryan as running mate
over the summer cheered conservatives in the
House, many of whom regard him as their
leader on budget and economic issues. The
seven-term lawmaker has authored a pair of
decit-reducing budgets in the past two years
that call for spending cuts and changes in
Medicare, blueprints that Republicans passed
through the House and Obama and his allies
in Congress frequently criticize. He also
champions a no-tax increase approach to eco-
nomic policy.
As a senator before becoming vice presi-
dent, Biden was chairman of the Foreign
Relations and Judiciary committees, and he
has long experience in national security
issues. More recently, he was Obamas point
man in arduous, ultimately unsuccessful
negotiations with Republicans on steps to cut
the decit.
Both Ryan and Biden held extensive
rehearsals, with stand-ins for their opponents.
Biden turned to Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-
Md., who is well-versed in Ryans policy
views from his tenure as senior Democrat on
the Budget Committee.
Ryans foil in rehearsal was former
Solicitor General Ted Olson, a skillful court-
room advocate.
Continued from page 1
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- There is a strong likeli-
hood that you will focus on your hopes rather than
on actually doing what needs to be done. Good inten-
tions cannot replace industriousness.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Someone who is aware
of your gullibility might dangle a carrot at the end of
a stick in order to entice you to trot off after the unat-
tainable. Be on guard.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Try to be aware of
the fact that you cannot be all things to all people if
you are required to make a painful choice. If you fail
to be objective and logical, youll let everyone down.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Dont start an im-
portant assignment without frst laying out a specifc
game plan. It will be critical to have your methods
and procedures fgured out.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Be extremely careful
with your investments or anything else that requires
fnancial risk. Make certain that the odds are sub-
stantiated by the facts, before you make any bets.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- There is no reason
why you should have faith in someone who has
offered you bad advice previously. This person may
want to be helpful but doesnt have the wherewithal
to do so.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Unfortunately, success
could be denied you because, for some reason,
youre likely to do the opposite of what youre sup-
posed to. Pay attention to what must get done.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Although you know
deep down that great opportunities are likely to come
in your career, you may forget it from time to time.
Your associates wont, however.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- In order to achieve your
objectives, you must be tenacious and consistent.
If youre depending on chance to see you through,
youre in for a big disappointment.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- By failing to be
realistic, you could lull yourself into a false sense of
security regarding your opposition. Dont underesti-
mate your rivals; they could be stronger than you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If youre single, put your
credit cards in deep storage. If youre married, let
your spouse manage the fnances. You cant be
trusted with money right now.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- By requesting a favor
from an egotistical friend, all youre likely to do is
embarrass yourself. This particular person loves to
use rejection as a power play.

owners said they had never heard of before
unpermitted vehicle lifts.
The shops ring four blocks of South
Claremont Street and South Railroad Avenue
and many of them were sent warning letters to
abate a public nuisance for trash cans, grafti
and the vehicle lifts, also called racks or
Many of the owners learned for the rst time
that the lifts require a special permit issued by
the city.
The warning letters stated the owners could
be hit with a $2,000 administrative fee plus
daily civil penalties if the owners do not com-
ply by a certain date.
The code enforcement violations were the
result of multiple complaints from residents in
the surrounding neighborhood, Mason told the
The city only has three code enforcement
ofcers, Mason said, and did not seek out the
auto shops for violations on their own.
Many of the complaints were related to
parking issues in the area, double parking
especially, and for repair work that is actually
done on the street.
Some of the shop owners, however, said that
the code should be enforced for every business
in the city that uses vehicle lifts, and not just
the shops on Claremont Street and surround-
ing area.
Some said the city was picking on the
Weve never had this issue before, shop
owner Kevin Benner said about past inspec-
tions and the vehicle lifts.
Getting the permit, however, will not be
simple, Benner said.
It is beyond reason. It is not affordable, he
Taking the vehicle lifts down, the owners
said, would impact their business and make
parking even worse in the area.
Some wondered whether they could be
grandfathered in depending on when the code
went into effect.
Some have had the vehicle lifts in place for
30 years and never knew they needed a permit.
Many also wanted to know who the com-
plainers were.
Sue Nedwick, who owns an auto repair shop
on the block and leases space out for another,
said the city wasnt being fair.
This is ridiculous, she said about the citys
Mason was able to calm the group down,
We dont want to make things worse, he
said. We want to move to compliance and not
be insensitive.
The owners asked Mason a number of ques-
tions about the permit requirement for lifts
and when that requirement was rst enacted
into law.
I will research those questions and respond
to the owners when I have the answers. In
addition, some business owners raised some
specic concerns about the costs of complying
with the lift requirement. I am going to meet
with our inspectors and engineers to see if
there are ways we can suggest to help reduce
those costs, Mason wrote the Daily Journal in
an email after meeting with the shop owners.

JAKARTA, Indonesia A strong earth-
quake jolted eastern Indonesia on Friday,
panicking residents, but no major damage
was immediately reported.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake
measured magnitude 6.7 and was centered
108 kilometers (67 miles) north of Dobo in
Maluku province, at a depth of 24 kilometers
(15 miles). It was followed by two after-
shocks both measuring magnitude 4.9.
Indonesias meteorology and geophysics
agency put the preliminary magnitude at 7.0
and said there was no tsunami.
A district government office in Dobo, the
closest village to the epicenter, sustained
some damage but the extent was unclear,
said agency official Subagyo, who like many
Indonesians uses only one name.
Dobo resident Victor Siahaya said the
strong earthquake shook everything in his
house, forcing he and his family to run out-
It was so strong ... many people were
screaming while running in panic, he said.
But I dont see any damage in my neighbor-
Indonesia, the worlds largest archipelago
nation, is prone to seismic upheaval due to its
location on the Pacific Ring of Fire, an arc
of volcanoes and fault lines in the Pacific

2004, triggered a tsunami in the Indian
Ocean that killed 230,000 people, half of
