good resolution of the case. This is obviously a young man with a lot of issues to deal with, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. According to prosecutors, Ortiz blamed his father for his mothers imprisonment, leading to assaults on June 25 and Oct. 17, 2010. Ortiz was just 2 years old in March 1992 when his mother, Elizabeth Fuentes, fed his father a

chocolate milkshake mixed with a bug killer and ed the county to her native Mexico.

The Department of Justice is suing the operator of a Daly City nursing home for discrimination, claiming job applicants who are not native-born American citizen were required to show extra proof of their legal right to work. Generations Healthcare, which operates nursing homes statewide including St. Francis Pavilion in Daly City, rejected an applicant who did not have a green card but had an employment authorization document, according to the lawsuit led Friday.

Anyone craving a bit of Japanese culture, not to mention yummy food, can get their x Sunday, Oct. 2 at the sixth annual Japanese Cultural Festival in Millbrae. The goal of the festival is two-fold: One to present Japanese culture to the community at large, and to encourage other groups in Millbrae to think about ways in which to promote their own culture. And this years effort is to have more people experience the Japanese culture. Getting the word out meant going online as the group created its rst Facebook page, said Akiko Soda, Japanese language teacher at Mills High School who is

part of the festival committee. If the weather is good, were hoping for a good turnout, said Soda. The festival will have 25 to 30 booths, including demonstrations, food, arts and crafts and community organizations. The festival has drawn much interest from the Japanese and Japanese-American communities around the Peninsula. An immediate increase in attendance was noticed once the event was moved to the Civic Center Plaza, a sound stage was brought in and the date was changed from May to October. Normally drawing about 2,000 attendees, the festival has a variety of performers, food and activities for all, said Soda.

There will be Japanese cultural performances throughout the day including traditional dance, animation and a string instrument performance. The festival will also include activities such as a Japanese tea ceremony, a bonsai demonstration at 2 p.m. and a calligraphy demonstration. Mills High School will have one booth and 50 to 70 students volunteering at booths throughout the festival, said Soda. The free event will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2 in the Civic Center Plaza, 1 Library Ave. in Millbrae. For more information visit

Humane society aids 100 squirrels

The Peninsula Humane Society Wildlife Care Center, which occupies much of the second oor at the newly opened Tom and Annette Lantos Center for Compassion in Burlingame, reached an early milestone: 100 squirrels in need of rehabilitation. Sick, injured and orphaned wildlife are at the PHS year-round to get better and be released into their natural habitat. That work happened behind the scenes at the Coyote Point facility in some makeshift facilities, but PHS/SPCA designed its new Lantos Center with wildlife rehabilitation in mind. Some of the work including baby squirrel and bird feeding by staff and volunteers can be seen by visitors through a 20-foot long viewing window on the second floor. This week, volunteers were syringe-feeding milk to squirrels multiple times daily, according to PHS. The recent inux of squirrels was expected, as wildlife rehabilitation work is seasonal. Squirrels, like other local wildlife, have regular times of the year when they are born and when they need human intervention to survive. Many of the tree squirrels currently in the humane societys care had their nests damaged or destroyed by tree trimming, according to PHS. The busy time of the year for the humane societys wildlife rehabilitation work is spring through fall, according to PHS. PHS/SPCAs Lantos Center is located at 1450 Rollins Road in Burlingame.

inside acting nervously shortly after 8 p.m., Roskowski said. Gutierrez then asked Gonzalez, 53, of San Jose, for his keys and drivers license. A background check quickly revealed Gonzalezs arrest warrant in the Nevada murder. He was arrested without incident. Its just good old-fashioned police work, Roskowski said of Gutierrez, noting authorities across California and Nevada were told to be on the lookout for Gonzalez. The sergeant is an experienced investigator who simply trusted and followed his instincts. Gonzalez is being held in the San Francisco jail pending his extradition back to Sparks, Nev., where police accuse him of killing Jeffrey Jethro Pettigrew, 51, of San Jose during a shootout inside John Ascuagas Nugget hotel and casino last Friday. It wasnt immediately known if Gonzalez has an attorney. Gonzalez allegedly shot Pettigrew, president of the San Jose chapter of the Hells Angels and a city transportation worker, four times in the back, authorities said. They believed Gonzalez was in hiding and feared rival bikers would track him down before they could. Two Vagos members also were wounded in the Sept. 23 shootout, and a third was shot in the stomach the next morning by a gunman in a passing car. Saturdays shooting happened a few blocks from the Nugget and the town square where the 18th annual Street Vibrations motorcycle rally was being held. Sparks Mayor Geno Martini canceled the event and declared a state of emergency amid fears the gang violence might continue. Police Sgt. Greta Woyciehowsky said Friday authorities have no new leads or evidence to definitively connect the casino shootout and the shooting the next day of a Vagos gang member by a gunman in a black sedan. But she said the circumstances indicate they were linked. We had an individual that was dressed out in Vagos attire, in the color green, riding on a motorcycle and the people come up next to him in a car and shoot at him ve times, Woyciehowsky said a news conference. I think you can reasonably assume that was an act of retaliation.

Brown attacks lawmakers on dead mountain lion bill

By Judy Lin

SACRAMENTO Its not quite a cat ght, but its close. Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday sent a catty letter to California lawmakers in signing a bill that allows dead mountain lions to be stuffed and displayed in museums so long as they were not illegally killed. The bill enjoyed overwhelming support among Democratic and Republican lawmakers. It received a total of 116 votes out of the 120seat Legislature. If only that same energetic

bipartisan spirit could be applied to creating clean energy jobs and ending tax laws that send jobs out of state, Brown wrote in his bill signing Jerry Brown letter. Many of the governors budget and economic initiatives failed to gain enough support this year. He was unable to get GOP support to place a ballot measure before California voters to extend temporary state taxes.

City looking for answers in death of young girl
East Palo Alto city ofcials are looking for answers in the death of a 6-year-old girl struck and killed in a Bay Road crosswalk this week. Mayor Carlos Romero said the City Council will hear a staff report at Tuesdays meeting on the death of Sioreli Torres, who was run down as she crossed Bay Road at Gloria Way on her way to school Wednesday morning. The council will consider whether changes need to be made to deal with trafc conditions, based on the city staff and community feedback. We will probably get an earful, but thats what were there for, Romero said. I look forward to a robust discussion. Romero noted the Bay Road corridor is a priority, and more than $3.5 million was recently spent on improvements which include new crosswalks, curb cuts and a pedestrian-activated crosswalk less than 1,000 feet away from the accident. Torres was killed while in a crosswalk, as her mother and sisters walked a few feet behind her. Police are investigating the cause and have not arrested or detained the driver, Alisha Whiteparker. Whiteparker, 49, a teacher at Costano Elementary School, is on administrative leave, according to Ravenswood School District ofcials. Superintendent Maria De La Vega said the district is taking up a collection at each school and put out a call for funeral donations for Torres, a Green Oaks Academy student.

Eric Banford, a 46-year-old East Palo Alto resident, was charged with seconddegree murder, vehicular manslaughter, felony evading a police ofcer and felony hit-and-run, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said. Banford also has two prior strikes for felony convictions. He was convicted of manslaughter in 1991, and of robbery in 1987, Wagstaffe said. The murder charge was justied, in part, Wagstaffe said, by the act that Banford was allegedly using drugs at the time of the crash, which killed East Palo Alto resident Danny Lee Dixon, 50. Banford was allegedly trying to evade police when the Land Rover he was driving struck Dixons motorcycle at Bay Road and University Avenue at 5:25 a.m., according to police.

San Bruno Caltrain station moves to temporary location

Caltrain will begin serving a new temporary station in San Bruno Oct. 8 to construct the grade separation that will elevate the Caltrain tracks over San Bruno, San Mateo and Angus avenues. The temporary station is located just south of and adjacent to the current station. Train service will not be affected by the move. Tickets may be purchased at ticket vending machines at the temporary station, according to Caltrain. Construction on the future permanent station and the elevated structure will begin at the end of the year and is expected to be completed by fall 2012. The $147 millionp roject will improve safety for both motorists and pedestrians and reduce trafc congestion to and from Highway 101 in the city of San Bruno, according to Caltrain. In addition to the new station, there will be a parking lot with 201 spaces and a kiss and ride lot. The project includes three pedestrian underpasses one in the vicinity of Sylvan Avenue, one at the new station and another between Euclid Avenue and Walnut Street. Additionally, elevators will provide easy access for Caltrain customers. Streets and sidewalks, including those at Posy Park, also will be improved, according to Caltrain.

Bill Monning, DSanta Cruz, requires residential facilities to conspicuously post notices for at least 30 days and provide written notices to residents and their responsible parties if the facilitys license is in jeopardy.

State pulls out of foreclosure talks

By Don Thompson

Border Patrol seizes 14 tons of pot in California

SALTON CITY The Border Patrol says agents have found more than 14 tons of marijuana inside a truck at a remote Southern California checkpoint. The agency said Friday that it arrested a 35-year-old truck driver who was stopped at the checkpoint on state Highway 86 near Salton City, about 60 miles north of the Mexican border.

SACRAMENTO California Attorney General Kamala Harris said Friday that she will not agree to a settlement over foreclosure abuses that federal ofcials and other state attorneys general are negotiating with major U.S. banks. Her announcement is the latest to undermine a resolution that had been in the works between the banks and attorneys general in all 50 states. Other states including New York also have expressed reservations about the deal, which would help keep people in their homes and compensate borrowers who faced improper foreclosures. The agreement was supposed to settle claims of poor mortgage and foreclosure practices, including document fraud known as robo-signing approving documents in foreclosures without actually reading them. However, Harris said the pending deal is inadequate for California homeowners and gives bank ofcials too much legal immunity.

The state is being asked as part of the settlement to excuse conduct that has not been properly investigated, she wrote, promising to continue Kamala Harris her own investigation. Without agreement from the nations most populous state and one of the hardest hit by foreclosures the settlement could end up doing little to resolve the issue. Foreclosure fraud class-action lawsuits are also piling up against major banks across the country. Harris noted that more than 2.2 million California residents are underwater, meaning they owe more on their mortgages than their homes are worth. Since the negotiations began 11 months ago, foreclosures have begun against more than 560,000 additional California homes. No state has been harder hit than my home state of California, Harris wrote in a letter to Associate U.S. college bond measure mostly from those in the building industry but so far the campaign has spent practically nothing. Other school measures also showed financial support. Donations from groups supporting three local school measures the San Mateo County Community College District bond measure, a $30 million bond measure for the Millbrae Elementary School District and a $76 annual parcel tax benefiting Burlingame schools showed lots of financial support.

Attorney General Thomas Perrelli and Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, who have been leading the talks. Bank of America Corp., JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Wells Fargo & Co. are among the banks that have been involved in the talks. We will continue to work with all parties, including our customers to restore home ownership nationally and locally, Wells Fargo spokeswoman Vickee Adams said, adding that the bank has helped more than 700,000 people nationwide with new low cost loans or modications. JPMorgan Chase spokesman Thomas Kelly and a Bank of America spokesman Lawrence Grayson declined to comment. Harris said California will go it alone in negotiating a settlement with the banks that would keep more families in their homes. She also promised to seek regulations and legislation to prevent future problems. Assistant Iowa Attorney General Patrick Madigan said California had been an important part of the negotiations, which already have had last Belmont Councilwoman Christine Wozniak has raised $1,615 toward her re-election bid, according to campaign finance forms released this week. Wozniak loaned herself $1,000 and received a $150 donation from former councilman Phillip Matthewson. Wozniak has spent $2,192.76 on campaign literature, voter information, ofce supplies, postage and for website hosting services. Redwood City Councilman Ian Bain has raised $2,395 toward his re-election bid. Bain began the reporting period with a $1,809.45

ing effects, delaying foreclosures in many states. However, the multistate effort is pressing forward and we fully expect to reach a settlement with the banks, he said in a statement. The settlement will still be presented to all 50 states, he said. States need to move quickly to prevent more foreclosures, Madigan said. Providing relief after the foreclosure crisis is over would be a hollow victory indeed, he warned. Community organizations praised Harris for rejecting the settlement. The rst step in restarting our economy is keeping people in their houses and holding banks feet to the re, Rick Jacobs, chairman and founder of the Courage Campaign, said in a written statement. This settlement would have only been able to help around 20,000 California homeowners out of 2.2 million, while giving away all future rights to pursue investigations and litigation around a broad list of fraud that has been committed, said a news release from People Improving Communities Through Organizing.

Harbor district seeks new master

The San Mateo County Harbor District Commission will likely search nationwide for a new harbormaster with more managerial experience than the longtime position holder who departed earlier this month, the commission vice president this week.

No Child Left Behind

Chicago Sun-Times

Other voices
only if every group of students in the school, including poor students, racial groups and special-education students, meet testing targets that grow more difcult each year. That microscopic view has done wonders to focus America on its neediest students. But that laudable goal also has proved counterproductive and unworkable, leaving Obama and U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan little choice but to rework it. Obama said he will offer waivers to states that want to opt out of key provisions of the No Child Act, including the mandate that all students reach pro-

n 2001, President George W. Bushs signature reform effort, the No Child Left Behind Act, became law with broad bipartisan support, its centerpiece a bold pledge to hold all students to high standards. The law, which President Barack Obama said he will dramatically alter in the coming months, requires annual student testing and sets a goal of bringing all American children, regardless of background or disability, to grade level in reading and math by 2014. An audacious and admirable goal, to be sure, one that focused attention on every student like never before. Under the law, schools are judged a success

ciency by 2014. The waivers are in place of a scheduled 2007 update to the law that Congress has failed to produce. The waivers are reserved for states that will use rigorous college and career standards to set new ambitious but achievable testing goals, states willing to turn around their weakest schools and states willing to set guidelines for teacher and principal evaluations. This is not a retreat. We consider this No Child Left Behind, Part 2. The No Child law set the nation on the right course. But now were ready for the next step: A law that does more than identify the problem, a law that does a better job of moving education in America forward.

A government for the people?

dont mean to sound irreverent of that great declaration by President Lincoln, but I believe its time for a reality check: Of the people. OK! But by the people? How can it be by the people when so many do not vote, a goodly portion of the 66 percent who declare their allegiance to one or the other of the major parties do no more than repeat the talking points, believe the 30-second television blurbs and ingest the bumper slogans, as they vote lockstep with their declared political allegiance? Of course, with their workloads and overwhelming commitment to entertainment, its naive to believe that many of those voters actually do their own research but mostly react and vote to single issues, such as support for Israel, to preserve benets and entitlements, anti-something or another and such. Government for the people? Thats the bane of the conservatives since Franklin Roosevelt invoked that to have the government help the hurting people during the Great Depression. Its been historically true that concern about all of the people has been the last thing on their minds as they throw every bone they are able to the very slim number of people who dwell at the top of the economic ladder. That may have run its course, as recent Gallup and others polls are revealing that even two-thirds of those who declare themselves Republican have joined the three quarters of all Americans who support taking tax breaks away from that limited number of people. Of course, theres been a rush by the conservatives to blanket the Buffet Rule adopted by the administration with the big lie of class warfare. Which is perversely humorous because that warfare was initiated by them with their attacks upon the shrinking middle class, the expanding lower economic classes and women. Heres just a sampling of what class warfare really is: Gut collective bargaining, pass medical programs off to the tender mercies of red states, cut off benets for those unemployed through no fault of their own, close off medical services for low-income women, support enforcing foreclosures of desperate homeowners, keep loopholes and deductions so the rich and super-rich continue to pay lower income taxes than their employees and sometimes not at all, put Medicare on a voucher system in which the elderly may become victims of inevitable cost rises and pre-existing condition exclusions, privatize Social Security, disenfranchise the poor and the elderly with new voting rules, such as needing drivers licenses and insulting testing for drugs Now thats class warfare! They foster this big lie, while the wealth gap between the economic classes is the greatest since before the Great Depression, and growing. They wish to obscure the fact that the middle class is really eroding quickly, there are still 50 million without health insurance and even that is accelerating, as job coverage is lost. They promote the image that the evil government wants to take your hard-earned money and give it to some unemployed person too lazy to look for a job. And, perhaps, worst of all, they are trying to gut as many regulations that inhibit the reckless exploitation of our irreplaceable and fragile natural resources and protect the health and welfare of all of the people. Loyalty to the American people is trumped by loyalty to prots and stockholders and lets ship as many American jobs oversees as it enhances our corporate prots. Its time to replace the big lies with the big truths. This may come sooner than we expect. Since theres been a big media blackout, its unlikely readers here will even know for almost two weeks theres been thousands occupying the square near Wall Street, demanding that it be called into account. In that, they are joining similar very large demonstrations in India, Israel, Spain, Greece and the Middle East, among others, who are scorning governments that cater only to special interests, as ours has been doing since the end of World War II. Of course, Wall Street responded only by beeng up security and labeling those as the spoiled children of the middle class and aging hippies, when, actually, most are young, intelligent students and graduates fullling their college dreams who are unable to nd decent jobs, if at all. Since universities have become only vocational schools for most, theres a lack of historical awareness that these are almost always the vanguard of big changes in societies, as we had during the Vietnam and civil rights movements. They consider their parents voting as worthless for them as the same economic framework continues to exist that favors the controlling 1 percent and which keeps them out of the mainstream. These protests are ignored by our elected political leaders at their own peril, as these young represent the future voters and the future of America.

Pundits on the right and left alike have correctly noted that the presidents proposals amount to the opening round of his re-election campaign. Well see how the American people judge the direction hes headed when they vote in next years presidential election.

Letters to the editor

Support Palestinian statehood
Editor, Palestinians recently submitted their application for statehood to the United Nations. The United States is threatening a veto, yet the two-state solution has been U.S. policy for decades. The only way forward to ensure peace and security is for Israelis and Palestinians to each have their own state. Israels objections to this U.N. request are disingenuous. They claim their willingness to negotiate the peace has been dismissed by the Palestinians. But, at the same time they are mouthing words of willingness, Israelis continue to conscate Palestinian lands, bulldoze Palestinian homes and roads, build separation barriers and arrest those who protest these actions (both Palestinians and internationals). Israeli occupation has destroyed more than 531 villages, bulldozed nearly a million olive and fruit trees and thrown up horric walls that separate families and encircle villages into ghettos. Americans often hear the Israeli view, but it is time to listen to the voices on the other side. Unfortunately, the media seldom tells the Palestinian story: imams denouncing violence, multinational supported non-violent efforts for peace in the Occupied Territories and daily humiliations at checkpoints endured trying to get to work, to school, or even to hospital. Until the media steps up, I recommend looking at the link Watch the embedded video Steadfast Hope to learn what is happening on the ground. Palestinians deserve legitimacy at the U.N. There will be no peace until there is justice.

bouts of buying and selling. The Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq each lost more than 12 percent this quarter, the rst time thats happened since the nancial crisis crested at the end of 2008. The S&P 500, the benchmark for most U.S. stock mutual funds, has lost 14.3 percent since July 1, the start of the third quarter. Thats the biggest quarterly drop since the three months ended Dec. 31, 2008, when global financial markets seized up. Excluding that period, the S&P has not dropped that much in a quarter for nine years. The Dow dropped 1,500.96 points, or 12.1 percent, over the same time frame. The market has really seen some damage this quarter, said Mike Hurley, portfolio manager of Highland Trend Following Fund. The weakness appears to be the start of a longer decline, Hurley said, because bonds are increasing in value and interest rates are low. Traders also are selling commodities such as oil, which would lose value in an economic downturn. Lower interest rates and commodity prices are denitely an indication that the market thinks economic activity is going to be weak, Hurley said.

BofA debit fee is only the latest

Business briefs
Executives indicted over faulty aircraft repairs
SAN FRANCISCO A federal grand jury has indicted six former executives and supervisors of a Northern California aircraft repair company on charges that they cut corners and used unapproved parts. The indictment unsealed Thursday in Sacramento charges the former employees of Lincoln-based WECO Aerospace Systems Inc. with conspiring to use uncertied parts and falsely certifying that the Federal Aviation Administration approved their use. Prosecutors allege the faulty repairs happened on small, private aircraft between October 2006 and February 2008. No crashes or ight emergencies occurred because of the repairs, U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner said. While it is fortunate that there are no aircraft crashes known to be associated with faulty repairs conducted by these defendants, their alleged conduct needlessly took risks with the safety of persons who used aircraft that they repaired, Wagner said. FAA regulations are intended to ensure the safety of air travel, and those who disregard them in order to increase prots should face serious consequences.

NEW YORK Angela Malerba, who works in public relations in Boston, carries a debit card because she likes to know when she buys something that she has enough in her account to pay for it. But paying $5 a month to use her own money? Thats too much. So when Bank of America starts charging the fee next year, Malerba gures shell rely more heavily on her credit card. Or, in a strategy that seems almost quaint in these swipe-and-go times, she may just carry more cash. Paying $60 a year in debit card fees just seems absurd, she says. The 38.7 million people who carry Bank of America debit cards will face a similar decision in the latest example of

banks raising fees or establishing new ones not just for debit cards but for visiting ATMs or talking to a teller. Bank of Americas announcement follows tests by Wells Fargo and Chase for $3 monthly fees for debit cards in some markets. Other banks have begun charging for basic checking. Banks have sharply restricted their rewards programs for debit cards. Bank of America said the fee will apply only when customers use their debit cards for purchases in a certain month. The fee will not apply if the card is used only to access ATMs. It will not apply for premium customers, who keep high balances. Debit fees hit particularly hard because banks have spent the past decade encouraging their customers to go for the ease of the cards, which deduct purchases immediately from a checking or savings account.

In 1995, debit cards accounted for only 1 percent of the transactions when people pulled a card out of their wallet to pay for something. Credit cards made up the rest. Debit cards grew steadily, hitting 50 percent in 2006. Today, there are more than 530 million of them in use in the U.S. Two out of every three times someone reaches for plastic, its debit, according to the Nilson Report, which tracks the card industry. Credit cards still make up 56 percent of the money spent, according to the report. So when people use debit, its for the forgettable, smaller transactions of everyday life a pack of gum or a cup of coffee. Banks have cashed in big. They collect about $19 billion a year from swipe fees, the pennies they collect from a store every time you run your card through a magnetic reader at the checkout counter.

U.S.incomes fall for first time in nearly two years

DOE backs three more solar loans as deadline looms

WASHINGTON With a midnight deadline looming, the Energy Department has approved three more loan guarantees for solar energy totaling about $3.5 billion. Energy Secretary Steven Chu says the department has completed a $1.5 billion loan guarantee to Arizona-based First Solar Inc. for a 550-megawatt solar farm on federal land in Southern California and $646 million to Exelon Corp. for a 230-megawatt solar plant near Los Angeles. A third project, worth $1.4 billion, will support installation of about 750 solar rooftop panels in 28 states. The loans were approved under the same program that paid for a $528 million loan to Solyndra Inc., a now-bankrupt solar panel maker that has become a symbol for critics of the Obama administrations green energy program. The loan program expires on Friday.

WASHINGTON Americans earned less in August than in July, the rst decline in nearly two years. With less income, consumers could cut back on spending and weaken an already-fragile economy. Their lower pay explains why consumers increased spending at a slower pace in August. And most of the increase went to pay higher prices for food and gas. When adjusted for infla-

tion, spending was flat. Many people tapped their savings to cover the steeper costs. The savings rate fell to its lowest level since December 2009. The decline in income offered more evidence that households are in quite a bind, said Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics. Consumer spending rose 0.2 percent in August, after growing 0.7 percent in July, the Commerce Department said Friday. Incomes fell 0.1 percent, which was the rst decline since October 2009. The data also contributed to a rough

day of Wall Street. The Dow Jones industrial average tumbled to close 240 points down. Broader indexes also fell. When people have less income, they spend less and that slows growth. Consumers spending accounts for 70 percent of economic activity. The economy grew just 0.9 percent in the rst half of the year, the worst sixmonth stretch since the recession ofcially ended more than two years ago. Most economists have been predicting the second half of the year will be slightly better, in part because gas prices have come down since peaking this spring.

Mortgage rates now below even lows of early 1950s

By Derek Kravitz

WASHINGTON Mortgage rates have skated near record lows for weeks. But now it can nally be said: Longterm rates in the United States have never been lower. This week, the average rate on a 30year xed mortgage fell to 4.01 percent, mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said in its weekly report. Thats the lowest since it

began keeping records in 1971. For months, Freddie had pointed to data from the National Bureau of Economic Research showing that rates were lower in the early 1950s, when long-term mortgages typically lasted just 20 or 25 years. But Freddie says thats no longer true: Todays average 30-year rate is even lower than the average 20- or 25-year rate was in the 1950s. The NBERs data show that between July 1950 and February 1951, long-term

rates averaged 4.08 percent. Todays average 30-year rate is 4.01 percent. Both are higher once you include the extra fees most buyers pay. Those fees are called points; one point equals 1 percent of a loan amount. If you include fees and points comparable to todays low rates, the 1950-51 average would be 4.33 percent, Freddie Mac said Friday. Todays average on the 30-year, with extra fees factored in, is 4.17 percent.

Serra stuffs St. Francis

By Julio Lara

Sequoia slammed
By Nathan Mollat

The jinx is over. For the rst time since 1969, the Serra Padres football team traveled to St. Francis High School in Mountain View and at the end of a 48minute war with the Lancers, found themselves on the winning end. Its safe to say that the bus trip back to 20th Avenue in San Mateo was one hell of a party. Its incredible, said Serra quarterback Joey Erdie. It was an incredible performance by both teams. We denitely felt (the hype), we denitely focused on it. We were just trying to embrace it, overcome it, and thats what happened tonight. The monkey on Serras back had 42 years worth of weight accumulated, and the Padres, along with the infamous Padre Faithful, celebrated like the 31-13 victory was one of the biggest wins in school history with the student section charging the now-unhexed eld post game. The streak was something like 40 years, said Serra linebacker Brandon Bochi. We came out so red up, so prepared, its such a huge win for us. It sets the tone for the season. Its a season that has started with four straight victories. And the Padres came away with the win by sticking to what has brought them success in 2011 running the ball with incredible efciency. Serra outgained the Lancers 342 to 189 Friday night, with all of the Padres yards coming on the ground. Erdie rushed for 44 yards on 11 carries and Eric Redwood handled the rock 22 times for 109. But the man everyone will be talking about on the Serra campus come Monday is Erich Wilson, who almost single-handedly placed the Padres on his back and put together a performance for the ages on both sides of the football. Offensively, Wilson carried the ball 22 times for 185 yards, scoring two touchdowns along the way the second of which Serra head coach Patrick Walsh called, the play of the game. With the score 17-13 in favor the Padres and 1:44 left in the third quarter, Serra found themselves with fourth and one at their own 42-yard line. Sensing that St. Francis was seizing some of the momentum, Walsh made a gutsy call and decided to go for it.


See SERRA, Page 16

Serra quarterback Joey Erdie ran the Padres offense to near perfection as they beat St. Francis in Mountain View for the rst time since 1969.

The Sequoia football team got off to a fast start offensively against visiting Valley Christian-Dublin Friday night. The Cherokees scored on their rst two drives of the game to take a 14-7 lead with 47 seconds left in the rst quarter. And then the Vikings ran away from the Cherokees literally. Attempting only one pass all night, Valley Christian ran the ball 67 times for a whopping 461 yards the Vikings handed Sequoia its rst regular-season loss since the 2009 season. Last year, the Cherokees went through an undefeated regular season (with one tie) and added two more wins in the Central Coast Section playoffs before Willow Glen handed them their only loss in the CCS Division II championship game. In fact, that loss to Willow Glen resembled Friday nights loss in several ways. Most notably in the Cherokees inability to stop a high-powered offense. Willow Glen, they out-played us, said Sequoia coach Rob Poulos. Not to say [Valley Christian] didnt out-play us, but they out-physicaled us. [The Vikings] brought the hat early. Valley Christian (4-0 overall) had three runners nish with over 100 yards rushing, led by Anthony Grants 190 yards on 20 carries. Quarterback Alex Wozniak added 110 yards on 16 carries and A.J. Harris added 103 yards on 16 carries. Harris was the Vikings power back and he did most of his damage in the rst half, rushing 14 times for 101 yards. Then, Grant got warmed up. He also rushed for over 100 yards in the rst half. In the second half, it was Wozniaks turn to gash the Sequoia defense as he racked up 76 yards in the second half running the Vikings option offense. They ran a bunch of power stuff early. Thats a physicality test, Poulos said. Then they went to their option stuff. Its hard to simulate [the option] in practice. Valley Christian was especially dominant in the rst half, churning out 277 yards on the ground and 17 rst downs. Despite being dominated in the rst half, the

Homecoming for Seymour to face old team 49ers kicker Akers

By Josh Dubow

By Rob Maaddi

PHILADELPHIA David Akers left his heart in Philadelphia when he went to San Francisco. The ve-time Pro Bowl kicker is coming home Sunday when the 49ers (2-1) visit the Eagles (12). Akers return to Philadelphia hasnt received the headlines Donovan McNabb and Brian Dawkins got when they came back. But this will be a special homecoming nonetheless. Philadelphia has been a huge blessing in my life, Akers said. I just cant say enough for the organization, for the way they gave me the opportunity to make it in the NFL when so many other teams didnt. Akers was so thankful that he put up a billboard on I-95 near Lincoln Financial Field that

read: Thanks Philly for blessing me for 12 years and for your support on and off the eld! The green-and-white billboard above the backdrop of a football eld hung for a month during the preseason. I cant thank those fans enough, he said. David Akers Still, Akers, whose wife and children remain living in New Jersey, is trying to downplay his return. I just realized from the start of the season that Im a 49er and this is just going to be another game, Akers said. Obviously, Im going to where my house is and my family is and all that.

OAKLAND Nearly a decade removed from the Tuck Rule Game and having shed his New England uniform for the Silver and Black of the Oakland Raiders, Richard Seymour still isnt ready to change his view on one of the most famous and disputed plays in NFL history. While Raiders backers are still insistent that Tom Brady fumbled after being hit by Charles Woodson in the closing minutes of that snowy playoff game in January 2002, Seymour takes a more diplomatic approach leading up to his rst meeting against his old team since being traded to Oakland in 2009. It could have went either way, he said. It is what it is. I dont make those calls. The fumble was overturned on instant replay and the Patriots went on to win their rst of three Super Bowls with Brady and Seymour leading the way. Seymour also didnt make the call that sent him to the Raiders a week before the start of the 2009 season. After being a stalwart for

Richard Seymour

eight seasons in New England, Seymour was a bit shocked by the deal and took his time coming to Oakland. But once he arrived, he fully embraced everything about his new team and has been a key part of the turnaround that has made Oakland relevant again for one of the few times in the

past decade. Theyve embraced me with open arms. I think you always want to be where youre welcome and youre wanted, Seymour said. I have a good supporting cast and everyone is understanding what were trying to do here. Two games doesnt win us anything in this league. Weve got a big challenge this week and were looking forward to it. While there is plenty of history surrounding Sundays meeting between the Patriots (2-1) and Raiders (2-1), that all will take a back seat once the game begins.

Dons wear out Mustangs

By Nathan Mollat


Aragon tackle Derek White,right,paves the way for Davarian Redd,left,to rush for a 42-yard score. Redd scored three times and ran for 114 yards.

For a half, the Capuchino football team gave visiting Aragon all it could handle. But a bad punt followed by a quickstrike touchdown from the Dons just before halftime gave them the momentum they needed to post a 24-0 win over the Mustangs. With just under three minutes remaining in the second quarter and Aragon leading 3-0, Capuchino was forced to punt from deep in its own territory. The punt from the 5-yard line traveled only 15 yards and Aragon, which struggled offensively up to that point, took over at the Mustangs 20. On the next play, Davarian Redd blasted into the end zone from 20 yards out, putting the Dons up 10-0 with 2:42 left in the rst half. Any time you give a team like that eld position and momentum (its going to hurt you), said Capuchino coach Adam Hyndman. Redd nished the game with 114 yards on 11 carries. Aragon (4-0 overall) used that momentum to score on its rst two drives of the second half with Redd scoring both. He went 42 yards over

right tackle with 7:17 left to play in the third quarter to put the Dons up 17-0 and capped the scoring with a 19-yard run on fourth-and-1, this time over left tackle to put the Dons ahead 24-0 with 20 seconds left in the third quarter. Aragon coach Steve Sell admitted his team might have been overlooking the Mustangs. But he knew better. This was not exactly the kind of game you want to have going into league play (which begins next week), Sell said. I told them this was a trap game. I told them (after Fridays game), Youre a high school football team. Youre bound to have one of these games. While the Aragon offense struggled against Capuchino (2-3), the Dons defense was stout against a Mustangs squad that had scored 62 points combined in their last two games. Friday, however, not only were the Mustangs shutout, they managed only 135 yards of total offense 54 in the rst half. It was the Capuchino defense that kept the Mustangs in the game in the rst half. They were bringing everybody, Sell said. The Dons managed just 103 yards of total offense in the rst half, before get-

ting their running game in gear in the second half. Aragon rushed for just 58 yards in the rst half, but nished the game with 268 yards on the ground and 313 yards of total offense. The rst half, I was pleased (with the defensive play), Hyndman said. In the second half, [Aragon] just said, Were bigger than them. Aragon place kicker James Garcia gave Aragon a 3-0 lead with a 30-yard eld goal to cap a 12-play drive that bogged down at the Capuchino 14. From there, it turned into a battle of eld position and defense before Redds 20-yard scamper gave the Dons some breathing room. Aragon came out with a renewed focus in the second half and steadily wore down the Capuchino defense. We made an adjustment on our blocking (in the second half), Sell said. And we ran a little harder. Hyndman could not explain his teams lack of offensive production, especially after two weeks of tremendous execution. Offensively, Im still stuck, Hyndman said. Mustangs running back Justin Ewing had a strong effort. He rushed for a team-high 102 yards on 21 carries, after gaining just 41 yards in the rst half.

Menlo cruises past short-handed Mills

By Julio Lara

On paper, the preseason nale between Menlo School and Mills looked like a mismatch with the Knights undefeated and the Vikings at 1-2 and without their starting quarterback. Once the opening whistle blew, Menlo showed everyone just how big of a mismatch it was going to be. Menlo stormed off with the game in the rst half, putting up 30 points

and holding the Vikings to -11 yards of offense. The dominating half of football was more than enough as the Knights cruised to a 37-0 win to close out their preseason at a spotless 4-0. The good thing is everyone played, said Menlo head coach Mark Newton, so were really pleased with that. Everyone got in, and when they got in they knew what they were doing and they did it well. A running clock was used midway through the second quarter

after Mills, who was already without their usual starting quarterback, saw second string QB Parth Patel go down with injury. With the roster depleted, the Vikings posed very little resistance to the Menlo offensive attack. And the Knights defense had no problems corralling the Vikings. Mills attempted only one pass in the game, which was completed but called back after a penalty. For the game, the Vikings totaled three yards of total offense. Menlo on the other hand racked

up the yards and the points early. The Knights got on the board with 7:58 in the rst quarter after their rst drive ended in a 3-and-out. On the rst play of drive No. 2, Jack Heneghan found Connor Paterson on the right at. The junior wideout shook off a would-be tackler then proceeded down the eld for a 71yard touchdown. Four minutes later, Heneghan would hook up with Dylan Mayer on a four-yard touchdown toss set up by Mayers 28-yard run to Mills 4-yard line. Three plays after the

run, Mayer was rewarded for his effort. The missed point after kept the score at 13-0. After a Mills drive that resulted in -11 yards, Menlo wasted very little time in nding the end zone again. With 11 seconds gone in the second quarter, Heneghan found Chris Reed on a little out-pattern for his third touchdown toss of the half. With their top two quarterbacks unavailable, Mills had problems the entire afternoon with the center-to-

Red Sox Weather the winner in New York part with Francona
By Mike Fitzpatrick

By Howard Ulman

BOSTON The Terry Francona era in Boston began with the Red Sox rst championship in 86 years. It ended after one of the worst months in club history. Players who didnt listen to him needed a new voice, he said, and his employers agreed. The team announced Friday that it was not exercising its contract option for next season and wouldnt hurry to name a replacement for the manager who rarely criticized his players publicly. That loyalty may not have been returned. I trusted them explicitly and things werent getting done the way I wanted it in the end, Francona Terry Francona said, and I was frustrated because of that. If thats letting me down, maybe it is. But, he said he liked his players and I actually feel I let a lot of people down. In a statement, the Red Sox said they wouldnt pick up the option for a ninth year as manager following the teams September collapse in which they blew a nine-game lead in the AL wild-card race. They went 7-20 in September, capped by a 4-3 loss to Baltimore, as Tampa Bay beat them for the playoff spot on the nal night of the regular season. Owners John Henry, Tom Werner, and Larry Lucchino acknowledged a change was needed and thanked Francona, who led the franchise to titles in 2004 and 2007. But the statement also mentioned that Francona was ready to head in a different direction. Tito said that after eight years here he was frustrated by his difculty making an impact with the players, that a different voice was needed, and that it was time for him to move on, the statement said. The decision was part of a whirlwind day at Fenway Park that saw the principal parties shuttle in and out of the facility. Francona was in the building three different times. As Francona drove away once in his

NEW YORK The rainy season rolls on. The playoff opener between the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees was suspended because of rain in the second inning Friday night, wiping out the ace of each pitching staff for a few days. Justin Verlander started for Detroit against CC Sabathia in a highly anticipated matchup between two of the games best pitchers. The score was tied at 1 in the middle of the second inning when play was halted. According to a rule adopted by Major League Baseball after rain and snow wreaked havoc with the 2008 World Series, the game is not postponed. So it will pick up Saturday night at the point of suspension weather permitting with the Yankees coming to bat in the second inning. The forecast calls for rain through late Saturday night. Neither ace is scheduled to pitch again until at least Game 3 on Monday, likely limiting both to one start each even if the best-of-ve American League series goes the distance. Its denitely disappointing, Sabathia said. It looked like it was going to be a good game.

Instead, what was already a wild week for baseball became a wet one, too. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said rookie righthander Ivan Nova will be on the mound when the game resumes Saturday at 8:37 p.m. He had been slated to go in Game 2, which was moved back to Sunday at 3:07 p.m., a scheduled day off in the series. MLB said there will not be a doubleheader during the series. Just had a nice bullpen in front of half of America today, Verlander said. It was a little disappointing. Now Ive got a start Monday to look forward to, start getting prepared for that. Freddy Garcia will now get the ball in the second game for New York instead of Game 3, Girardi said, adding that he wasnt sure yet when Sabathia would go again. I want the ball as much as possible, Sabathia said. The big lefty added that he would make his pitch to Girardi to start on Sunday, but the manager said: Its not the right thing to do. Doug Fister, the Tigers scheduled starter for Game 2, will pitch when Game 1 resumes. Max Scherzer was moved up from Game 3 to Game 2 and Verlander will start Game 3 on Monday.

This is not a big deal. Everybody does the best they can. Everybody is kind of scurrying around right now, Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. Theres no sense getting excited. I dont worry about stuff like that. I think when the manager makes a big deal about something like that, it affects the players. It is what it is. Good Lord, it rained. So what? he said. Verlander and Fister are both right-handed. But the Tigers elded a lineup Friday night that was stacked with right-handed hitters against Sabathia. Now that same group will have to remain in the game, at least at rst, against Nova. Thats the one little dilemma probably, but it will work out, Leyland said. Im going to keep my lineup in there and see how the game plays out. Obviously, Im not going to start pulling guys out. Delmon Young homered for the Tigers and Alex Rodriguez had an RBI groundout, both in the rst inning. All statistics from Friday night will count. Verlander, who won the pitching version of the Triple Crown in the AL this season, threw 25 pitches in the rst inning. Rain began falling with Mark Teixeira at the plate, the eighth batter of the game.

Tampa blasts Texas in opener

By Stephen Hawkins

Rays 9, Rangers 0
innings as fast as possible, he said. Kelly Shoppach homered twice and drove in ve runs, Johnny Damon also homered and Tampa Bay dominated the whole way behind Moore. Moore began this best-of-ve matchup by striking out six and walking two against the ALs top-hitting team. The Rays played for the rst time since their dramatic rally Wednesday night on the nal day of the regular season. Since Tampa Bay needed every out simply to overcome Bostons ninegame lead in the last 3 1/2 weeks to win the wild card, Maddon had to focus on getting this far over trying to set up his pitching rotation. When Maddon had to pick a rested starter for Game 1 of the AL division series rematch, he had no qualms of going with the lefty who made his rst start last week at Yankee Stadium and struck out 11 in ve scoreless innings. No pitcher had ever started a postseason opener with only one previous career start until the seemingly unfazed Moore took the mound at Rangers Ballpark less than 22 hours after being told he was pitching in the playoffs less than three months after pitching in the Futures game

ARLINGTON, Texas Matt Moore went to the mound as the ultimate wild card. Seven innings later, he walked off as a postseason ace. Making only his second major league start, the 22-year-old rookie pitched two-hit ball and left with a huge lead Friday as the improbable Tampa Bay Rays opened the real playoffs with a 9-0 victory over the defending AL champion Texas Rangers. You cant be more impressed, Rays manager Joe Maddon said. What he did tonight was spectacular. A minor leaguer until mid-September, Moore dazzled with his pitching and poise. He took a deep breath before his rst delivery, then was in total control for a team that already had played a months worth of tense games. I may have looked a little more calm than I was, especially early. The rst inning, I had a little bit of nerves and adrenaline going, Moore said. But these guys made it really easy for me, putting up those numbers. Looking up there after the fourth, I think it was 8-0, it was just a matter of throwing strikes and getting out of the

during the All-Star break. Rookie Brandon Gomes and Wade Davis both pitched a hitless inning in relief to complete the rst shutout in Rays postseason history. It was a day of memorable pitching in Texas, where 6-year-old Cooper Stone tossed a ceremonial rst pitch to Josh Hamilton and then shared two hugs with his favorite player. This was Coopers rst game at Rangers Ballpark since July 7, when his reghter father fell to his death trying to catch a ball thrown to him by Hamilton. Cooper went to the mound Friday with his widowed mother, Jenny, and Rangers president Nolan Ryan, the Hall of Fame pitcher. Game 2 is Saturday night. James Shields will start for the Rays against Derek Holland. Moore, who had thrown only 9 1-3 innings in the majors before this start, was smiling by the late innings. He was greeted by hugs and highves in the Rays dugout after he had thrown his last pitch he threw 98 in all, 62 for strikes. I know everybodys name in that lineup. I never faced them before, just kind of one of those things I didnt want to be out of it before I was in it, Moore said. I tried to be as normal, as normal and as calm as possible. And it was just a matter of getting comfortable, and there on it was throwing strikes.

Phillies eager to get postseason started

By Rob Maaddi

PHILADELPHIA Roy Halladay came to Philadelphia to pitch in October, knowing the regular season was a necessary formality. Halladays rst trip to the postseason was quite a memorable one, though it ended in bitter disappointment. The two-time Cy Young Award winner, his teammates and just about everyone else in Philadelphia expects the Phillies to win the World Series this time around. First, they have to beat the red-hot St. Louis Cardinals in the NL division series. Game 1 is Saturday at Citizens Bank Park, with Halladay opposing Kyle Lohse.

We were anxious in spring training, Halladay said Friday. I know you play 162 games and you get to this point. This is the fun part. Were looking forward to it. Obviously, the ultimate goal is to win a World Series, but weve done a lot of great things this year, and we have a great team. I think to a man in that clubhouse, theres not a guy who would tell you that he would not be disappointed if we didnt win it all. The teams took different paths to get here. Led by their Four Aces, the Phillies cruised to their fth straight NL East title, winning a franchise-record and major league-best 102 games. The Cardinals needed an incredible collapse by Atlanta and help from Philadelphia to

earn the wild card. St. Louis trailed the Braves by 10 1/2 games on Aug. 25, but went 23-8 the rest of the way and got in after Game 162 when the Phillies completed a three-game sweep of Atlanta. They are very good, Phils manager Charlie Manuel said. Theyre playing good, especially the last two or three weeks, and without a doubt, weve got our work cut out. Three out of ve is a short series, and for us to be playing them at this time, weve got to play good baseball. Halladay also praised the Cardinals, calling them a dangerous team. But the big righthander borrowed a line from William Shakespeare to make it clear hes not intimidated by Albert Pujols or the rest of St. Louis

potent offense. I heard a quote a long time ago: I came here to bury Caesar, not praise him, Halladay said. I think its true. Were all aware of how good the team is. We obviously have respect for what theyve done and how theyve played, but you have to be condent going in that youre going to be able to beat them. Halladay got his rst taste of the postseason last October after spending 12 years in Toronto looking up at the Yankees and Red Sox in the standings. His debut was one for the ages. Halladay threw the second no-hitter in postseason history in Philadelphias 4-0 victory over Cincinnati in Game 1 of the 2010 NLDS.

D-backs have stats to match Brewers stars

By Chris Jenkins

MILWAUKEE When it comes to star power, even the Arizona Diamondbacks acknowledge theyre no match for the Milwaukee Brewers. Milwaukee has a pair of MVP candidates in Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder, and pulled the surprise of the offseason when they traded for standout starter Zack Greinke. The Diamondbacks biggest star is Justin Upton and even he feels as if he and his teammates get lost in the shufe. Were just a bunch of guys nobody ever heard about, Upton said. In Arizona, still, nobodys heard about us. The Diamondbacks might not have the Brewers marquee names. But the numbers, and the results, show two teams that are surprisingly similar going into Saturdays Game 1 of the NL division series. Milwaukees Casey McGehee calls the Diamondbacks the NL West version of ourselves, kind of. And if fans dont know the Diamondbacks players, Braun says they will soon enough. Its not like they dont have talent, Braun said. Justin Upton was an MVP candidate all year. You look at the top of their rotation, Ian Kennedy is going to be in the Cy Young discussion. So

its no doubt they have plenty of talent and I think theyre playing great baseball. Its not easy. Arizona and Milwaukee both can trace much of their success to improved starting pitching. Both have deep bullpens that dont blow leads. And while the Brewers are known for their two big home run hitters, the Diamondbacks can hit for power, too. I feel like were very similar teams, said Kennedy, who will start Game 1. And we probably got hot around the same times, just because I felt like when we came here it was right before the All-Star break and we were still in second. I dont know what place they were in. But I noticed that our record pretty much stayed the same all the way through, as they got hot. And thats when we took over rst place and continued to stay hot. So I think were very similar teams. The numbers will show that. Both are strong at the top of the rotation. Yovani Gallardo starts Game 1 for Milwaukee, coming off a dominant threegame stretch when he went 2-0 and had 36 strikeouts in 20

1-3 innings. Hes pitched good all year, but the way hes pitched lately has been lights out, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. I think his condence coming in has to be really high. And you wont see that, because hes a pretty mellow guy. Greinke will pitch on three days rest for Game 2 on Sunday. Arizona counters with 21-game winner Kennedy in the opener. And while manager Kirk Gibson hasnt set his rotation yet, Daniel Hudson is a strong No. 2 starter. Obviously the big thing for us against Gallardo is that Ian throws well, Gibson said. We expect a tight game. If he can match and keep the game close, just like many of these postseason games, well have a shot at winning. The late innings should be a case of strength versus strength. Brewers closer John Axford has converted his last 43 save opportunities. Francisco Rodriguez handles the eighth inning, and the rest of the bullpen is tough to score on, too.


Weekend Oct. 1-2, 2011

time of the night to do it. It was a fantastic run, an effort-drive run, just an amazing deal. Defensively, Wilson was entrusted with guarding the No. 1 rated wideout in the section in Braden Bishop. Our game plan (on defense) revolved around Erich being able to cover Braden Bishop on man coverage, Walsh said. And it all goes back to [Wilson], he did that. That gave us the opportunity to do some other things in the box with the rest of our defenders. Serra set the tone early in the game. On St. Francis rst play from scrimmage, Bishop took a hand-off and barreled into the line. When he saw he was going nowhere, he tried to lateral the culminated with Timmy Costa booting a 45-yard eld goal its a kick Menlo Athletic Director Craig Schoof said might be a new school record. The score was 30-0 at the half. With a running clock, Menlo only ran 13 offensive plays in the second half, one of which resulted in their fth touchdown, a 7-yard touchdown run by Heneghan. Bradley was three of three passing in the second half, good for 20 yards. Heru Peacock ran the ball effectively for Menlo, carrying it ve times for 18 yards. Mills was able to muster enough offense in the second half to get out of Negative Land the Vikings ran seven plays for 14 yards.

ball back, but the ball hit the turf and Peter Tuipulotu pounced on it, setting the Padres up with rst and 10 from the Lancer 11. Two plays later, Redwood romped into the end zone from six yards out for the early 7-0 lead. Serra would add three points to that lead following a 13-play drive that stalled at the 12-yard line. Anthony Toms came in and kicked a 29-yard eld goal to make it 10-0 Serra. St. Francis nally showed some life offensively on the ensuing drive, aided in large part by a Redwood fumble on the St. Francis punt that set them up with the ball at the Serra 28-yard line. Two plays later, Durrell Crooks found some daylight and romped into the end zone from 25 yards out to make it 10-7. Redwood wasted little time in redeeming himself. On the St. Francis kickoff, No. 2 took the ball to the Serra 40-yard line. Four plays later, Wilson had his rst big run of the day, a 30yard touchdown run with 7:47 left in the half to give Serra the 10-point lead. It was a lead theyd take into recess. St. Francis began the second half by shutting the Padres down and forcing a punt. The Lancers then went on a nineplay drive that ended when Crooks ran the ball into the end zone for the second time, this one from 27 yards out. A blocked extra point made it 17-13 Serra, but the momentum seemed to shift with Crooks second touchdown. It appeared that the Lancers would seasons here as the best kicker in team history and one of the NFLs all-time greatest. Akers holds the franchise record for points, eld goals, extra points, games played in the regular season and in the playoffs. He was selected to the NFLs All-Decade team for the 2000s, and Morten Andersen (seven) and Jan Stenerud (six) are the only kickers whove made more Pro Bowls. Unfortunately, its part of this game, Eagles coach Andy Reid said. I have the highest regards for David Akers. Youre talking about the greatest kicker in Eagles history; really, I mean I think thats probably a slam dunk. And the guy, hes a great person and he did a tremendous amount in the community and Im sure hell be welcomed back with open arms. When youre together for 12 years like he and I were, then you develop a relationship there and I hold he and


capitalize on that swing when Serra found themselves with fourth and one at their 42 that is, until Wilson got his hands on the rock again and took the ball to the promised land on the play of the game. The nail in the proverbial cofn came with 5:55 left in the game, when Erdie snuck into the end zone from one yard out to give the Padres the 31-13 advantage. I think this is a win for the alumni, for the community, for the people who graduated in 1970, Walsh said. And Im very very happy for that. But this team has a higher goal than just one win. Its a very special win, not to take anything away from the boys, but there is a whole season to be played here. his wife and his family in the highest regards. The 49ers are thrilled to have him. The 36-year-old Akers has made all seven of his extra points and all seven eld goals, including long ones from 55 and 53 yards. He also has been a positive inuence on his teammates. Ive seen a lot of leadership from David in the locker room, said 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh. I knew he was a great guy and a high-character guy, but I didnt anticipate what kind of a leader he was and what kind of impact hed have on our team. I dont know if Ive ever seen a kicker be as much of a leader as David has been. Hes just an interesting guy. He works, he loves his family, he trains dogs. Theres a lot to him. He takes the time and works to get to know the other players on the team. I cant say enough about him. A class act all the way.

I had complete faith in the guys up front and in Erich, Walsh said. Wilson rewarded his coachs faith by taking the ball over the right side, shufing his way through the line, bolting across the eld and then down the Serra sideline for a 58-yard touchdown. The run was just as electric as it was deadly to the Lancers, who four minutes before had trimmed the Serra lead to four. I was waiting for that all night, Walsh said. And he picked the best

quarterback exchange. Those issues ended up costing them dearly on their ensuing drive when Peter Tight was able to pounce on a loose football and set his Knights up with rst-and-10 from the Viking 19-yard line. Three plays later, Matt Bradley, who had come in to spell Heneghan at quarterback, hooked up with Reed on an 8-yard touchdown pass and catch. With 9:52 left to play in the rst half, Menlo led 27-0. The Knights werent done yet. After another Mills drive resulted in negative yardage, Menlo went on a seven-play drive to eat up a lot of time in the second quarter. The drive

Spending 12 years there, you just cant erase that. But its another game as of right now. Put the emotions away and realize that Im no longer going to be on the sidelines where the Eagles are. Akers didnt choose to leave Philadelphia. The Eagles decided to go in another direction, even though Akers had perhaps his best season last year and made the Pro Bowl for the second straight year. After designating Akers as a transition player a move that was voided by the new CBA the Eagles drafted kicker Alex Henery in the fourth round. That signaled the end of Akers career in Philly. He nished up his 12

and threw a little swing pass to Josh Lauese, who did the rest. Lauese looked like he was shot out of a cannon as he was at full speed in two steps and raced past the Valley Christian defense for a 34-yard score. After forcing Valley Christians only punt of the game on the Vikings second possession, the Cherokees quickly took the lead. Starting from their own 40, the Cherokees needed six plays to nd the end zone, with Taylor lunging in from a yard out. The big play was a 44-yard pass and run from Taylor to Matt Jenkins, taking the ball from the Vikings 46 down to the 2. We found some holes early and then they (Valley Christian) adjusted, Poulos said. After that, it was all downhill for the Cherokees. The Vikings tied the score on their next drive, took the lead on the safety and then scored on three straight possessions in the second half. Thats a good learning experience going into league, Poulos said of the loss. Hopefully, this will refocus us.


These Raiders are much different than the version Brady last played against six years ago. That led to a week of intense studying for Brady, who knew more than enough about one member of the Oakland defense. Brady and Seymour were teammates for eight seasons in New England when they won Super Bowls and that famous game in the snow against the Raiders.The two are still friends and have lots of admiration for each other that will be put aside for the game on Sunday. I was hoping that day would never come when he was here because I know what kind of player he was for us, Brady said. I saw him this offseason. He promised me that if he got to close to me, he wouldnt take me down too hard. Ill see if he lives up to that. Hes a great friend and a hell of a player. He looks like the Richard that Ive always seen. He gets after the quarterback, he plays the run, hes a great leader on the defense. For Brady, the trip to the Bay Area is extra special, having grown up across San Francisco Bay in San Mateo. He has only gotten the chance to play out here once in his career, losing to the Raiders 26-20 in 2002 in one of seven games he has started that the Patriots failed to score an offensive touchdown. Brady missed games in San Francisco and Oakland in 2008 after suffering a season-ending knee injury in the season opener. He said his parents will be happy not to have to make a long trip to see him play, although he said they may be in disguise at the game to avoid being harassed. Its been a while, he said. I always enjoy being home. The last time we played in Oakland it wasnt a very pleasant ight home. Hopefully we can redeem ourselves this time around.

Continued from page 11
Cherokees only trailed 16-14 at halftime, and should have been tied, if not for a snap out of the end zone on a late second quarter punt attempt. In the second half, however, the Vikings stuffed the Sequoia defense. They didnt allow the Cherokees to pick up a second-half rst down until there was 10:15 left to play and the Cherokees facing a 16-point decit, 30-14. In all, Sequoia managed just seven rst downs and just 180 yards of total offense for the game. Sequoia (3-1) started quickly. After the Vikings drove 80 yards on nine plays on the rst possession of the game, the Cherokees answered with a quick strike of their own. Starting from their own 25, they drove to the Vikings 34 where Sequoia faced a fourthand-5. Quarterback Mike Taylor took the snap

Continued from page 11
Then it will be all about the Patriots trying to put last weeks collapse in Buffalo behind them, while the Raiders look to build on their satisfying win over the New York Jets in their home opener last week. A week after Oakland blew a 21-3 halftime lead in Buffalo, the Patriots squandered an early 21-0 advantage as Brady threw four interceptions in a 34-31 loss that has made for a rough week in New England. You better hate losing in the NFL because if you dont youre going to lose a lot, Brady said. Fortunately theres not too many losses that weve had here. Every time you lose its a rough few days until you get back to practice and start preparing for the next opponent. The Raiders were able to put their loss to the Bills behind them quickly. They ran for 234 yards, led by a career-high 171 by Darren McFadden, to beat up the Jets last week and gain some respect around the league. After going eight straight seasons without a winning record, the Raiders appear to have turned things around under new coach Hue Jackson. But they know that win against the Jets will mean little if they cant back it up this week. We try not to notice it because we still got a lot to improve on as a team, quarterback Jason Campbell said. We feel like we got a long way to go. We know the Patriots are coming into town and we know how quickly things can change. You win one, youre the greatest thing in the world. You lose one, same old Raiders.

ing to generate momentum by finishing in the top three in the caucuses, the rst of the 2012 nominating contests. The former Massachusetts governor is dispatching his wife, Ann, there next week and Mitt Romney plans his own visit later in the month. After scaling back sharply from his $10-million 2008 campaign in Iowa, Romney is now adding modestly to his small Iowa staff and building support among niche groups, such as the agricultural industry, local businesses and senior citizens. Perry charged hard out of the gate to cheering crowds after he announced in late summer. But his momentum was slowed by stumbles in recent debate performances. Nevertheless, hes heading to New Hampshire, where active voters hold him with some skepticism, for a series of appearances in front of inuential voters who will be able to question him in public. The following weekend, Perry plans to introduce himself to conservative northwest Iowa, where the Texas governors opposition to a fence on the U.S.Mexico border has raised eyebrows. Rick Perry Perry is organizing aggressively in Iowa and has already peeled support away from rivals Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum in the state where he is expected to do well. Although Romney has only visited the state twice this year, he has maintained some support, and the latest moves there up the ante. There are enough people in the Republican Party in Iowa who want to keep the focus on jobs and the economy, Romneys senior Iowa strategist David Kochel said. And we have an opportunity to organize in Iowa. With a small but effective effort, we can do well.

Romney, Perry reach deeper into early states

Obama welcomes new military chief replacing Mullen
WASHINGTON The Obama administration welcomed Army Gen. Martin Dempsey as the new chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Friday and said farewell to Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, whose nal day as the top American military ofcer was punctuated by the killing of a key al-Qaida gure. Martin In a ceremony at Fort Dempsey Myer, Va., President Barack Obama lauded Mullen for his steadiness, resilience and humility. Be assured, our military is stronger and our nation is more secure because of the service that you have rendered, the president told Mullen, who is ending a 43-year military career. Obama called Dempsey one of the militarys most battle-tested ofcers.

DES MOINES, Iowa Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is following his long-planned, tested and methodical strategy to secure the Republican presidential nomination, while his chief rival, Rick Perry, is challenging the experienced campaigner on the y. Meanwhile, several people close to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie say hes reconsidering his decision to stay out of the race. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they werent authorized to discuss the issue. Neither Romney nor Perry is panicking nor retooling after an aggressive September battle in which each landed blows. But as they begin October, they will each reach deeper into the early contest state perceived to belong to the other man. Romney has kept a low prole in Iowa, but his campaign is growing in the state now, hop-

FAA workers furloughed in shutdown get back pay

WASHINGTON Nearly 4,000 workers who were furloughed in a two-week partial shutdown of the Federal Aviation Administration this summer were told Friday in an email that they will receive back pay. The back pay will be in the workers Oct. 18 paychecks, according to a copy of the email from Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt. The FAA said in a separate statement that its using authority provided in a bill passed by Congress in August ending the shutdown to award the back pay.

TRENTON, N.J New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is reconsidering his decision to stay out of the race for the White House in 2012 and is expected to make a decision soon, according to several people close to the governor with knowledge of his thinking. Christie has long said he wont run in 2012. But those close to the rst-term governor, who spoke only on condition of anonymity

because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the issue, say he is rethinking his hard stance. A decision will have to come fast. Filing deadlines in primary states are weeks away. Calls have been intensifying from top GOP Chris Christie donors and party elders for Christie to jump into the race. President Barack Obamas weak

approval ratings and a Republican eld that has been struggling to put forward a clear front-runner are also creating an opening for Christie. Christie may think twice about moving forward, however. GOP latecomers have jumped in to see a big initial splash, only to tread water. Michele Bachmann leapfrogged ahead of Mitt Romney only to be pushed back when Texas Gov. Rick Perry joined the eld in August after months of insisting he had no interest.

First taste of lifeatcollege

By Chloee Weiner

hile I spent a great deal of my summer completing the required and grueling tasks of lying in the sun, catching up with episodes of guiltypleasure television and vegetating, a signicant part of my days were spent in classroom 142 of the College of San Mateo. In an effort to try out classes in subjects not offered at my school, Id enrolled in a beginners psychology course: Psyc 100. I entered the classroom expecting to meet several people like me: high school students looking to receive college credits (or, more accurately: high school students with parents who insist that summer is a time for learning and not for hibernation). However, I should have prepared myself for the diversity of community college. Instead of nding myself amongst fellow teenagers, I spent the six weeks that followed with adults that fullled high school stereotypes surprisingly well. Much like a typical high school, my class was broken up into cliques. One of the cliques that was least shy in establishing themselves immediately consisted of the oldest students in the class. On the rst day, they sat front and center and were quick to begin vying for the title of teachers pet. From that rst day onward, they thrust their hands into the air to answer questions that had yet to be asked and rivaled in their ability to provide words of wisdom to the younger students. A few desks over in the corner sat the psychedelic, bearded gentleman who we later discovered wasnt actually enrolled in the class (he later became known for his complete lack of textbooks and the friend hed often bring to class for company). Closer to my side of the room was the student who mulled over switching his major each and every morning. It became a proven pattern that the more psychology homework we were assigned, the more he was convinced he belonged in the theatrical world. As for me (by some unimaginable reason) I immediately found my place in a group of students in which I was the only non-blonde and even more noticeably, the only one who didnt speak Russian uently. However, the similarities between the high school classes Ive taken and the course at CSM ended with social hierarchies and stereotypes. Having been accustomed to learning in a classroom lled with around 15 students, it was foreign learning alongside 30 at CSM. Our class, as a result, was far less unied and instead sectioned into groups.

Number fails to add up

By David Germain

Hollywoods new age of realistically raunchy, female-driven romantic comedies takes a step backward with Whats Your Number?, a dollop of forgettable uff thats as dull and predictable as they come. If Kristen Wiigs Bridesmaids was a 10 and Cameron Diazs Bad Teacher was a 6, then Whats Your Number? rates a 2 or 3, straining through a similar R-rated sensibility but delivering the usual vanilla of most PG-13 romances. As she usually does, Anna Faris comes through with a spirit and quirkiness far more engaging than the material merits, creating a character youd like to embrace if only she wasnt forced to behave so stupidly and shallowly. But its difcult to get caught up in what essentially is a one-note, feature-length gag about a womans sudden xation that

shes slept around too much and that one of those former partners must have been her perfect mate. Particularly when the lmmakers had the misfortune of starting their story with Faris stealthily preening so shell look like a cover girl for her current partner when he wakes beside her. It might have looked like an original moment from director Mark Mylod, a veteran of British TV as well as HBOs Entourage, and screenwriters Gabrielle Allan and Jennifer Crittenden, if it werent a bad echo of an identical and much more clever and genuine sequence in Bridesmaids. Based on Karyn Bosnaks novel 20 Times a Lady, Whats Your Number? has Faris Ally Darling in similar straits as Wiig in Bridesmaids newly red and fumbling romantically while everyone else seems to cruise effortlessly into love and marriage. Ally freaks after reading an article stating

that most women average 10.5 sexual partners in their lives and that those who sleep with 20 or more men are prone to insecurities and low self-esteem that make them unlikely to land a husband. She tallies up her number and realizes with horror that shes just hit that terrible milestone, so Ally vows to go without sex while she reconnects with past lovers, guring she threw back at least one sh she should have kept on the line. Its as episodic as it sounds as Ally and her ally hunky neighbor Colin (Chris Evans), who conveniently has a snoops background, growing up in a family of cops track down the men in her life one by one. The exchanges between Ally and her lovers are quick and mostly humdrum, despite a nice range of cameo appearances by such actors as Anthony Mackie, Zachary Quinto, Martin Freeman, Joel McHale, Chris Pratt and Andy Samberg.

Good story, excellent musical

When the musical Gypsy originally opened on Broadway in 1959, it was a perfect vehicle for starring the legendary, brassy Ethel Merman. But when it was nominated in eight categories for Tony Awards, including best musical and best actress, it won nary a one. Its ironic because since then it has been touted by some critics as the greatest American musical of all time, become a classic addition to the musical theater repertoire, been staged professionally several more times and is a staple of regional and community theaters across the country. Even Jessica Lansbury won a Tony in a Broadway revival. And its all due to the irrepressible Mama Rose, Rose Hovick, a complex and driven woman whose story, inspired by the memoirs of her daughter, the famed stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, was immortalized in this musical after it fell into the hands of three famed Broadway gures, Arthur Laurents, Jule Stein and Stephen Sondheim. With a story like that and such songs as Let Me Entertain You, Everythings Coming Up Roses, Small World, Together Wherever We Go, the hysterical You Gotta Get a Gimmick and the heartbreaking Roses Turn, how could it fail to be great? But no matter how great the book and music, however, nothing is guaranteed if the staging and performers dont match the script in quality. No fear of that with Broadway By the Bay, where superior casting is a given and Robin Tribuzi is around to do the choreography and Ric Reynolds, the musical direction. Upcoming new Artistic Director Amanda Folena does a great job of pacing the action in a complex staging of sets. As almost all know by now, Rose Hovick was modern theatrical historys quintessential stage mama, driven to make one of her daughters, the super cute June, a big star in the vaudeville palaces in the 1920s and 1930s, while almost completely ignoring her ugly duckling daughter Louise. Even three failed marriages didnt slow her down.

Heather Orth as Mama Rose is simply spectacular from the outset as she drags daughters Baby June (Mary Kalita) and Baby Louise (Samantha Bruce) from stage to stage, theater to theater, even as vaudeville was dying. After being traumatized by losing June who didnt really believe she was star material to an eloped teenage marriage, she resorts to trying to make the less talented Louise into a star by pressing her into burlesque, where she ultimately becomes Gypsy Rose Lee, the most famed stripper of all time. The heartbreaking climax is in the last song of the show, when she admits to herself she has been doing it all for herself to give life to her own frustrated personal ambitions. Samantha Bruce is also remarkable in how she carries her character from a subdued and compliant Louise, subservient to her mothers demanding will, to how she blossoms out in full sexuality when she is released on to the booming burlesque stage, with full footlights, and emerges from the cocoon as Gypsy Rose Lee. Also impressive is Walter M. Mayes as Herbie, a failed show biz character who falls in love with Rose and joins the family as a booking agent. And Mary Kalita as the adult June, who ironically did eventually become a star of stage and screen as June Havoc. Clair Lentz is the very young Baby

People in the news

Medic: Info from Jackson doctor didnt add up
LOS ANGELES After just a few moments in Michael Jacksons bedroom, the paramedic dispatched to save the singers life knew things werent adding up. There was the skinny man on the oor, eyes open and a surgical cap on his head. His skin was turning blue. Paramedic Richard Senneff asked the sweating, frantic-looking doctor in the room what condition the stricken man had. He said, Nothing. He has nothing, Senneff told jurors at the involuntary manslaughter trial of Jacksons doctor, Conrad Murray. Simply, that did not add up to me, Senneff said. Over the course of the 42 minutes that Los Angeles paramedics tried to revive Jackson, several other things about the room and Murrays responses seemed inconsistent with what had really happened, Senneff said. After repeated prodding, Murray revealed a few details about his actions, saying that he had only given Jackson a dose of the sedative lorazepam to help him sleep.

In all, there are about 20 other actors crossing the stage, some of the cutest preteens and good-looking dancing teens youve ever seen, all having great fun as newsboys and backup performers for Baby June, with elders lling in as stage crew and managers. I cant remember how many times Ive seen Gypsy over the years but, with each new theater, new director and new cast, its always another new and great experience and this production by Broadway By the Bay is among the best.

ROAD SCHOLARS LEARN AS THEY GO. Travel offers many things. Adventure. Fun. Education. New Friendships. Road Scholar, formerly known as Elderhostel, provides all of these in its perennially popular programs that deftly combine the usual pluses of packages tours and the advantages of travel with intellectually curious friends. Road Scholar weaves sightseeing with guest speakers, course-related field trips and extracurricular activities, affording participants the opportunity to fully discover the people and history of the places visited. The resulting experience is a much richer one than individual visitors could arrange for themselves. Road Scholar president and CEO James Moses said, Road Scholar learning adventures inspire adults to discover the world and explore a world of ideas. Our experts, professors and instructors share their knowledge and provide insider access to behindthe-scenes experiences. Each year more than 100,000 extraordinary people become a part of our warm and welcoming educational community. At the heart of the organization are the participants, who are lifelong learners engaged in educational trips that foster camaraderie and a sense of community. Road Scholar devotees enthusiastically share their impressions. Steve and Gayle Brugler of Palo Alto said, Weve attended 17 Road Scholar/Elderhostel programs, about half domestic and half international, and have enjoyed them all. A special favorite has been bike and barge which weve done in The Netherlands, in Germany, and in France. They offer a vast variety of programs targeted for mature folks who enjoy learning more than shopping. We find that the people on these trips are always lively and engaged. If you want to bask in five star luxury at a fancy resort, these trips are not for you. If you like trips with a strong educational component with interesting companions, we recommend that you check out Road Scholar. Road Scholar draws on a broad, seasoned

pool of experts to provide commentary and context at the widely varied program locations. One guide, Catalina Island Historian Chuck Liddell, who has been a lecturer to hundreds of Road Scholar participants, said, I, like most young people, used to look at senior citizens and think that they no longer wanted to learn and grow. Now that I am among their ranks, I realize how ridiculous this notion was. Having proudly worked with Road Scholar over the last five years, I am so glad that these wonderful explorers are given a chance to grow! Road Scholar programs are offered in all 50 states and in 150 countries, but a good place to start may be close to home. A number of programs take place at the Embassy Suites in Burlingame, where it is possible to attend as a commuter without staying at the hotel. This option is a way to sample the Road Scholar atmosphere without having to pack your bags. Burlingame programs include: Fantastic Comedy: Loads of Laughs.

50/50is effortlessly affecting

By Christy Lemire

It could have been agonizingly mawkish: the story of a young man with everything ahead of him who learns he has a rare form of spinal cancer, one that he only has a 50-percent chance of surviving. The premise alone sounds like an insufferable drag, an example of eatyour-vegetables cinema, regardless of the catharsis that might result. Instead, 50/50 is consistently, uproariously funny, written with humanity and insight and directed with just the right tone every time. Comedy writer Will Reiser crafted the script based on his own cancer diagnosis when he was in his early 20s. His words are lled with dark humor and a wry recognition of the gravity of this situation, but also with real tenderness. His characters are so well-drawn that even when you see obvious developments looming on the horizon, they still feel fresh and offer some moments of surprise. And director Jonathan Levine (in a vast improvement over his last lm, the self-conscious The Wackness) pulls us into this intimate world through an abiding naturalism. Levine has accomplished a tricky bit of juggling here: Hes made a lm about cancer thats effortlessly affecting. It helps a great deal that he has Joseph Gordon-Levitt, an actor of great range and subtlety, in the starring role. His character, Adam, a reporter at Seattles public radio station, receives the diagnosis after having a doctor examine him for chronic back pain. Everyone around him reacts differently to the news, and not necessarily well. Adam goes through all the requisite stages of denial, frustration, fear and eventually acceptance, but he does so with such believable imperfection, he never feels like a saint or a martyr. Hes not always gracious in the face of adversity; he can be a little surly and smug and emotionally closed-off. He doesnt even return phone calls from his understandably concerned mother (Anjelica Huston). But Adam has a great balance in his lifelong best friend and co-worker, the garrulous and lovably crass Kyle (), the kind of garrulous and lovably crass role Rogen has built a career upon. Again, though, heres an example of how 50/50 sneaks up on you: You think you know this guy, and then he shows a kindness and gen-

Five brief romances with director Haigh

erosity youd never expect. And it gives Rogen, whos also a producer on the lm, a rare opportunity to show some dramatic ability. Sure, he uses his buddys illness to line up sympathy sex for both of them but, you know, he means well. Similarly, Anna Kendrick may seem familiar to you as Adams inexperienced, young therapist, Katherine; it seems like the kind of eagerbeaver, overachiever role Kendrick has played before in lms like Up in the Air and Rocket Science. But theres a softness weve not seen from her before, a femininity thats appealing. Adam is only her third patient, and within her bungling and stiff gestures of sympathy lies not just a strong desire to help, but also to be perceived as helpful. Their exchanges increase in intensity and provide the lms biggest source of emotion. Bryce Dallas Howard, meanwhile, says all the right things but doesnt really mean them as Adams girlfriend. She insists shell stick by him no matter what, but its clear from the start that shes really trying to convince herself shes capable of such loyalty. Howard is in a tough

LOS ANGELES The indie romance Weekend, in theaters in limited release, is a sweet, wistful glimpse at a love that could have been from writer-director Andrew Haigh. It follows the brief but intense relationship between two young, gay men who meet in a boozy haze at a London club on a Friday night. They go home together, then spend the next couple of days having sex, taking drugs, sharing stories and forging a quick but genuine intimacy. Its shot with an engaging naturalism and written with a bracing honesty. So since we liked his lm so much, we asked Haigh to join us in the Five Most space this week to pick his favorite ticking-clock romances and elaborate on his choices. Dont wait see these movies before its too late: Brief Encounter (1945): From director David Lean, the ultimate tale of strong passions lurking underneath the repressed British exterior. The lm ends with the famous scene at the train station when the two characters are heartbreakingly robbed of their nal goodbye. (It was) written by Noel Coward, and there have always been rumors that it was really about two men, and if you watch it now in that context, it makes wonderful sense. Last Night (1998): Directed by Don McKellar, an end-of-the-world movie told with quiet simplicity. One of the stories follows two strangers, played by McKellar himself and Sandra Oh, who end up spending their last hours together. As the clock ticks

tion of students. Not only is CSM a two-year college (rather than a four-year high school), but students also pay by the unit and often come and go sporadically throughout the year. However, course enrollment, unlike in high school, is more often dened by passion and interests rather than requirements. The 30 or so students who surrounded me had chosen to be there. They were fullling a curiosity, eager to learn and therefore made for better discussion; going so far as to launch into a debate about child development that delayed the rest of our previously scheduled lecture for over an hour. I admit that since I attend a high school with 250 students, Im a little biased in my assessment of my rst college experience, but I hope not to be forced to choose between passion and community in the future.

Potter e-book sales STUDENT postponed until 12


LONDON Harry Potter fans will have to wait a bit longer to buy the magic tales in electronic form. The creators of the online Potter portal said Friday that the launch of an e-book store has been pushed back to next year. The seven Harry Potter books had been due to go on sale in October, exclusively through the Pottermore website. The site is a combination of virtual encyclopedia, role-playing game and online community for fans of author J.K. Rowlings boy wizard. It launched in July and is so far accessible to 1 million registered users chosen through an online competition. In a blog posting on the site, Pottermore management said registration would be open to everyone from the end of October, and the

online store would open in the rst half of 2012. The posting said use of the site so far had been phenomenal, and the delay would allow us to focus on our rst priority: opening Pottermore to as many people as possible and making the experience as good as it can be. The Harry Potter novels have sold 450 million copies and made Rowling one of the worlds richest women, with a fortune estimated by Forbes magazine at $1 billion but have never been available as e-books. Rowling annoyed some booksellers with her decision to circumvent established retailers and sell the e-books and digital audio books through her own site. The creators of Pottermore say the books will be compatible with popular e-readers, including Amazons Kindle, Sonys Reader and Apples iPad.

While fewer friendships amongst classmates were made, the fact that the students lacked any signicant relationships allowed for more risk-taking in discussion and competition when it came to contesting each others ideas about a controversial subject. People were far less afraid to express their opinions on issues like mental illness and invasive cerebral surgery. However, this anonymity in character also proved a disadvantage in forming teacher-student relationships. Relationships with our teacher, for the most part, were dened by Scantron bubbles and test scores rather than intellectual interest and academic integrity. But class size is not the biggest culprit of the formation of these distant relationships, at least not in comparison to the vast matricula-

Ari Graynor manages an easy rapport with Faris as Allys perfect, soon-to-be-married sister. But Blythe Danner is stuck in phony overbearing mode as their mother, while Ed Begley Jr. pops up as a lame afterthought as their dad. Bad as the movie is, its a nice showcase for Evans to display his comic charms (and rippling abs as a guy who goes shirtless an awful lot) after establishing his superhero cred in the title role of the summer hit Captain America:

The First Avenger. From the instant Evans Colin appears on screen, though, its insipidly obvious who Allys Mr. Right is, and the movie doesnt add up enough fun moments to make getting there an interesting trip. Theres a real missed opportunity for some shrewd laughs and even social insights in Allys conviction that 20 lovers make her an undesirable slut while womanizing Colin, whos clearly bedded far more partners, is simply living every guys dream.

Al-Qaida figure Al-Awlaki killed

Relief,anger at mosque where cleric preached
By Matthew Barakat

FALLS CHURCH, Va. At the Washington-area mosque where Anwar al-Awlaki preached a decade ago, there were few tears over the death of the inuential alQaida gure who more than anyone gave the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center its unwanted association with international terrorism. But some found the way he was killed to be un-American. Most worshippers at Dar alHijrah for Friday services said they were glad that al-Awlaki was gone that he besmirched not only their mosque but all of Islam by calling for the deaths of innocent Americans. Others rejected both al-Awlakis calls for violence against Americans and the U.S. airstrike that killed him in Yemen early Friday, saying he hadnt even been charged with a crime. And a small few were unrepentant in their support of al-Awlaki, though most were unwilling have their names attached to their views. I like justice to be done the normal way, said Tarik Diap. If youre guilty of doing something, you have the law, you have courts. This is, for me, youre killing someone without proving innocence or guilt.

SANAA, Yemen The heavy black beard spoke of Islamic piety, the fashionable wire-rim glasses of Western style. Anwar al-Awlaki, American-born, a gifted Muslim preacher and savvy Internet operator, became a powerful al-Qaida tool for recruiting in the West, its English-speaking voice spreading a terrorist credo via a blog, social media posts and email exchanges. Al-Awlakis East-West crossappeal was seen as a potential model for the next generation of alQaida leaders. But his rise to prominence also drew the attention of the CIA, and landed him on its captureor-kill list, the rst American so targeted. On Friday, al-Awlaki was killed in the mountains of Yemen in what

local ofcials said they believed was an American airstrike. The ofcials said pilotless drones had been seen circling the area in recent days. According to American ofcials, the 40-year-old al-Awlaki had over the years moved from being an influential mouthpiece for alQaidas ideology of holy war against the United States to an operational gure, helping recruit militants for al-Qaidas branch in Yemen, seen as the most dangerous direct threat to America. President Barack Obama on Friday called al-Awlaki the leader of external operations for al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, and outlined al-Awlakis involvement in planning and directing attempts to murder Americans. He directed the failed attempt to blow up an airplane on Christmas Day in 2009. He directed the failed attempt to blow up U.S. cargo planes in 2010, Obama said.

Killing Americans: Uncharted ground

By Matt Apuzzo

Officials:Drone likely killed terrorist

By Adam Goldman and Matt Apuzzo

WASHINGTON U.S. intelligence indicates that the top alQaida bomb-maker in Yemen also died in the drone strike that killed radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, two U.S. ofcials said Friday. Ibrahim al-Asiri is the bombmaker linked to the bomb hidden in the underwear of a Nigerian man accused of trying to blow up a plane over Detroit on Christmas Day 2009.

The FBI pulled al-Asiris ngerprint off that bomb. Authorities also believe he built the bombs that alQaida slipped into printers and shipped to the U.S. last year in a nearly catastrophic attack. The ofcials spoke on condition of anonymity because al-Asiris death has not ofcially been conrmed. Al-Asiris death would make the attack perhaps the most successful single drone strike ever. Along with al-Awlaki, the attack also killed Samir Khan, the editor of the alQaida propaganda magazine Inspire.

WASHINGTON President Barack Obama steered the nations war machine into uncharted territory Friday when a U.S. drone attacked a convoy in Yemen and killed two American citizens who had become central gures in al-Qaida. It was believed to be the rst instance in which a U.S. citizen was tracked and executed based on secret intelligence and the presidents sayso. And it raised major questions about the limitations of presidential power. Anwar al-Awlaki, the target of the U.S. drone attack, was one of the best-known al-Qaida gures after

Osama bin Laden. American intelligence ofcials had linked him to two nearly catastrophic attacks on U.S.bound planes, an airliner on Christmas 2009 and cargo planes last year. The second American killed in the drone attack, Samir Kahn, was the editor of Inspire, a slick online magazine aimed at alQaida sympathizers in the West. Al-Qaida and its afliates will nd no safe haven anywhere in the world, Obama said in announcing al-Awlakis death. Working with Yemen and our other allies and partners, we will be determined, we will be deliberate, we will be relentless, we will be resolute in our commitment to destroy terrorist networks that aim to kill Americans.

EAs NHL 12more realistic than ever

By Michael Felberbaum

EA Sports National Hockey League franchise froze out the competition a few years ago, winning fan devotion with its stunning graphics and true-to-life gameplay. Maybe thats because the programmers work out of Canada, eh? Whatever the reason, EA hasnt let the quality of NHL 12 (for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, $59.95) slide. This seasons incarnation builds on previous triumphs, with numerous subtle enhancements that make a big difference. But that doesnt mean a fan cant nitpick. Computer-controlled skaters now anticipate where the puck is going and are better at reading plays. You can interact more with the goalies by bumping or hitting them. The net comes off when players crash into it, and collisions and hard shots can break the glass. Helmets pop off and players can be knocked over the bench. EA Sports has upgraded its physics engine, so size and strength truly do matter. That means bigger hits and more muscling for the puck, and if you line up a skater just right, you can send him spinning. The new Be a Legend mode puts you in the skates of all-time greats like Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Gordie Howe. There are also improvements to the Be a Pro feature that allow you to create your own player from head to toe and lead him from the

minors to the big show. In the past, once your shift was over on the ice, youd have to watch and wait for your next turn. Now, you can simulate the time in between shifts so you can get back to playing sooner. NHL 12 also features the newest tradition and spectacle in the NHL, the Winter Classic outdoor game. While it defaults to last seasons contest between the Washington Capitals and the Pittsburgh Penguins at Heinz Field, you can choose any two teams and watch the snow fall on the ice as they skate around. Now the gripes. While the new physics engine makes gameplay more realistic, it also causes some frustration. The hitting and bumping moves the game closer to what youd see in an NHL game, but it also leads to more turnovers and lost pucks and slows the game down more than necessary. This seasons Legends team includes greats like Gretzky, Lemieux, Howe and Patrick Roy, but leaves out many of the games greatest players and some notable Hall of Famers. In their place are newer legends like the Penguins Sidney Crosby, the Vancouver Canucks Roberto Luongo and cover athlete Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning. EA Sports has come close to perfecting the hockey video game experience. Despite a few small issues, any hockey fan will enjoy NHL 12 and even gamers who arent devoted to the sport will nd much to enjoy. Three-anda-half stars out of four. House for the past ve months, is already in the process of trying to expand their specialty cocktail menu buy incorporating new infused spirits. Prior to Gov. Browns signing of the bill, the Department of Alcohol and Beverage Control had issued nes to several bars within the Bay Area for infusing and selling their own alcohol. We knew the threat was there, said Chris Demetris, a bartender at Glow. Demetris admits that now, with the cocktail infusions being legal, the bar can continue aiming to create a reputation for serving their unique drinks. The infused vodka is our center piece, Demetris said. Its our claim. The infused alcohol stands out from ordinary drinks and entices customers with the promise of tasting something inventive with a twist. [Infusion] makes the drinks taste better, Laredo said. And thats what we want to emphasize specialty cocktails and great wine. Steffen also believes in the drinks being served at Glow. Every batch is different, tastes different, Steffen said. It all about how sweet the fruit is or how the alcohol absorbs the avor.

single shelf containing liquor with various fruit and vegetables. This is what sets Glow, and a few other bars, like Burlingames Barrel House, apart from the rest: homemade infused alcohol. With Gov. Browns recent signing of Senate Bill 32, a bill that now allows bars to legally infuse alcohol with vegetables, fruit and spices bars are embracing the freedom to play around with different avors. We are very creative, said Krista Steffen, a resident bartender at Glow, for example, our pineapple-jalapeo kamikaze. With a blend of avors ranging from ginger lemon drops, to drinks infused with peach, mango and cucumber, the idea of creating various avors is not just for the personal artistry of the bartenders but also for the reputation of the bar. Barrel House owner, Juan Loredo, also sees the originality of infused drinks as a way to attract a growing market. There is denitely a demand for it, Laredo said. Laredo, who has only owned the Barrel

beat his father and screamed at him about what he had done to his mother, Wagstaffe said. The rst time, Ortiz put a knife to his fathers chest and later took him to the hospital where the man told doctors he had been robbed at knifepoint, Wagstaffe said. The second time, the man reportedly told staff he was beaten during a robbery. A family member eventually contacted the detective who investigated the milkshake poisoning in 1992. Although Ortizs father was the alleged victim in the case, prosecutors say he initially tried to protect his son by claiming the injuries were due to other circumstances. However, he was cooperative with prosecutors and ready to testify, Wagstaffe said. The case goes to show that when you have violence in the home, its what all the studies fell apart last year and the city was forced to seek more proposals for the site once set aside for a high school. Both development proposals were rst presented to the City Council Sept. 6 before a packed council chambers. Village Square is the vision of SaresRegis in conjunction with Northern California Presbyterian Homes and Services, Mercy Housing and Bank of America/Merrill Lynch. Sares-Regis wants to acquire the land outright rather than craft a lease agreement. The Community Partners plan, which includes a retail town square, seeks to leverage existing assets like Leo J. Ryan Park and The suit stems from an Aug. 25, 2009 incident in which a woman applied to be a certified nursing assistant at St. Francis Convalescent Pavilion and was allegedly told by a human resources ofcer to show a green card. The applicant said she did not have a permanent resident card but was authorized to work. In February 2010, she went back and presented an Employment Authorization Document. The ofcer told the woman she could not be hired because the EAD had a show, thats what the child learns, Wagstaffe said. Elizabeth Fuentes Ortiz, now 40, claimed self-defense in her 2002 trial on charges of attempted murder, concealing a child, inicting great bodily injury and torture. FuentesOrtiz told the court that by poisoning her husband she meant only to incapacitate, not kill him, to escape an abusive marriage that included sexual abuse. Prosecutors argued, though, that the murder attempt was fueled by jealousy and anger over his long work hours. On March 11, 2002, Fuentes-Ortiz brought her husband the milkshake laced with Ortho-7 insecticide. She told him it was a protein shake intended to help him build muscle mass. Gilbert Ortiz testied that the drink tasted like chocolate but sour and burning. Ortiz fell to the ground in convulsions, slipped into a 10-day coma and suffered mullook at ve projects that are complementary rather than one big development that might be more difcult to nance. But while the projects may be broken out, the retail component will fall under one vision and all facilities will include construction that favors the sun and shields the wind in the Community Partners plan. Unlike the large anchor store proposed by Sares-Regis, the plan includes boutiques and smaller stores like wine and paper shops. Key design elements for the Community Partners plan include promenades and gateways to Foster Citys main streets radiating out from the town center and with an emphasis on safety and accessibility. future expiration date, according to the suit. The suit claims the woman was authorized to work until June 22, 2010 as an asylum applicant and that the federal employers handbook spells out that consideration of an expiration date to prevent hiring may be an unfair immigration-related employment practice. During that period, the company hired ve CNAs at St. Francis, one U.S. citizen and four lawful permanent residents who could show green cards, according to prosecutors.

drawing commissioned by authorities searching for him and Ortiz was reunited with the father, Gilbert Ortiz, who survived the poisoning. Elizabeth Fuentes was convicted and sentenced to 13 years to life in prison. Defense attorney Gerritt Rutgers did not return a call for comment but previously told the Daily Journal his client has issues fueled by his mothers absence and the abrupt switch from living with her mother in Mexico to living with a paternal family he didnt know. Father and son were living together in Redwood City with other residents last year when, on two occasions, the younger man

tiple organ failures and a heart attack. While her husband was comatose, Fuentes-Ortiz gave Redwood City police conicting stories of from where the poison originated once she said a masked man tried to kill her husband; another time she claimed it was a suicide attempt. By the time Ortiz could tell authorities who had given him the questionable shake, Fuentes-Ortiz was gone. She was proled numerous times on the television show Unsolved Mysteries over the eight years it took FBI agents to arrest her in the Mexican state of Jalisco. She was denied parole for the rst time in January 2010. She is next eligible in 2015.

Partners, a consortium of several builders, including the nonprofit Mid-Peninsula Housing Corporation. The council is expected to pick one of the two groups to develop the site at its Oct. 17 meeting and enter into a 60-day exclusive negotiating period thereafter. A mixed-use senior housing complex called Mirabella was slated to be built on the land previously, but nancing for the project

Village Square would include a senior living community with three levels of care, a memory care center and amenities for seniors 70 and older. Both independent and assisted living facilities would share the site with affordable housing and multiple retail outlets. An arrival courtyard for vehicle drop-offs would sit in the middle and the various elements would be connected through walkways and plazas dotted with trees, sculptures and outdoor seating. The City Council meets 6:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 3, City Hall, 620 Foster City Blvd., Foster City. The case is an example of a pattern of discrimination that dates back to at least Jan. 1, 2008, the suit claims. The Department of Justice is asking that the company be ordered to stop the discriminatory practices, offer back pay and to hire or rehire each victim and pay the maximum civil penalties allowed.
