Food gap still high in county

By Michelle Durand

San Mateo County is 47 million meals short of meeting its need the same as last year but the states food stamp program is leading an increase in the number of residents receiving some type of food assistance. While the need for food increased by 5 percent between 2010 and 2011, food aid grew by 12 percent, according to the 2011 Hunger

Index, a measurement created by Santa Clara University Professor Dr. Drew Starbird. The index, which measures the gap between the need for food and the ability of individuals to receive it, was unveiled yesterday at the Hunger Issues Summit in Redwood Shores. Enrollment in CalFresh, the states food stamp program, is up but San Mateo County is ranked second from the bottom in participation by those eligible. California also ranks third from the bottom in the nation for partic-

ipation in SNAP, the federal program. That said, the county has made some improvements when Human Services Agency Director Beverly Beasley Johnson arrived in the county ve years ago, she said it ranked dead last. In the last scal year, 40,000 San Mateo County residents received CalFresh which is nearly double the previous year. The greatest jumps in use were on the coast and in Belmont, Burlingame, Millbrae and San Bruno.

Monthly applications are up 35 percent since 2009 and the majority of recipients are children and female. The enrollment increase is a mixed blessing, advocates said more people are being connected with food but the data also shows the ongoing need despite a recovering economy. Despite the enrollment increase, the high

New flood map update in place

4,000 San Mateo property owners no longer required to purchase mandatory insurance

The city of San Mateo underwent a signicant Physical Map Revision resulting in the removal of approximately 4,000 properties from the Federal Emergency Management Agencys Special Flood Hazard Area, more commonly called the high risk ood zone, according to a city press release issued yesterday. The impacted 4,000 property owners in South Shoreview, Parkside, Sunnybrae, 19th Avenue/Park and the areas neighboring the Marina Lagoon no longer are required to purchase mandatory ood insurance as of the effective map date change of Oct. 16, this past Tuesday. The PMR is a result of the completion of the citys Bayfront Levee Project which reduced ood risks to properties in the noted neighborhoods. San Mateo residents on the east side of the city voted in 2009 to assess themselves about $80 annually to pay for three miles of levee improvements. About 18,000 homes in San Mateo and Foster City would have been forced to pay higher insurance rates if the neighborhood had not voted for the

World history teacher Karl Lindgren-Streicher works with 14-year-olds Mariko Moore,left,and Natalie Lewis in the Hillsdale High School library Thursday morning.

Flipping class
Students at Hillsdale High School try new approach to learning
By Heather Murtagh

Police name suspect in Pacifica murder


Im so confused, 14-year-old Mariko Moore said while working on a computer in the library. She isnt alone. The Hillsdale High School freshman was working on a democracy and revolution project for world history. Students previously learned about revolutions from centuries ago. Now, teens were being asked to look at recent history to find a country also seeing change.

Students need to consider if there are similarities. This assignment raised lots of questions Thursday morning. Shortly after Moore declared her confusion, world history teacher Karl Lindgren-Streicher was there to answer questions. That might not seem like a different setup for a classroom, but Lindgren-Streicher is running things differently this year. Hes ipping his classroom allowing students to learn at their own pace, develop more critical thinking skills and better utilize face-toface time. The trend of ip teaching

comes in a variety of forms. Most commonly, people associate the trend with students watching video lectures at home then doing work in the classroom. Lindgren-Streicher approaches things a little differently. Lindgren-Streicher, for example, avoids homework. He wants students to do as much work as possible in the classroom so hes there to help. LindgrenStreicher subscribes to a mastery-based approach. Students have access to les-

A 24-year-old Pacica man was arrested Wednesday afternoon on suspicion of the rst homicide in Pacica in over a decade, police said Thursday. Police responded to a disturbance on Dell Road Wednesday and found 24-year-old Keith Coffey unconscious on the ground in front of a home there around 5:15 a.m., according to police. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police identied Marc Anthony Furlan as a possible suspect and arrested him in connection to the homicide around 4 p.m. Wednesday, police said. Police said preliminary information indicates the two were acquaintances and the death was the result of some sort of altercation between them.

murder of Jared Afu. If convicted of murder and the special allegation of lying in wait, he faces life in prison without parole. Afus friends reported seeing him stabbed by Ahio around 11:30 p.m. The next afternoon, a bloodied backpack containing idenLaungatasi tification and a bloody Ahio knife was discovered a block from the school, on the side of the New Vision United Methodist Church on Chadbourne Avenue. Ahio surrendered to police that night. Authorities suggested Ahio killed Afu over jealousy involving a girlfriend who he was convicted in July 2010 of battering. In June, Ahio was committed to Napa State Hospital but recently returned. Wagstaffe said the prosecution doesnt dispute that Ahio likely had mental issues but that is different than competency. Competency is a persons ability to aid in his or her defense at trial while sanity is a persons mental state at the time of an alleged crime. He remains in custody without bail.

Farmworkers sue state regulators over heat rules

By Gosia Wozniacka

FRESNO The United Farm Workers of America sued Californias work safety division Thursday, saying state regulators arent enforcing heat regulations, leading to continued illnesses and deaths in the elds.

The lawsuit, led on behalf of the union and individual farmworkers, alleges that the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health failed in the last two years to conduct inspections in response to some heat complaints, didnt initiate inspections on time, and failed to cite or adequately ne violators.

The agency said in a statement that it has issued hundreds of citations and penalties for heat safety standard violations and that the lawsuit filed today risks draining resources away from these critical enforcement actions. An ongoing lawsuit led in 2009 alleged similar violations in earlier years.

Brown says Prop. Coastside fisherman wants meth trial 30s higher taxes will be minimal
By Juliet Williams

SACRAMENTO Gov. Jerry Brown sought to persuade college students on Thursday to support his November tax measure, telling them a quarter-cent increase in the state sales tax and higher income taxes on the wealthy are a small price to pay for a more stable state budget and secure higher education funding. Putting it in everyday terms, the Democratic governor told about 100 students at Sacramento City College that Proposition 30 asks for a small sacrice Jerry Brown about a penny on a $4 deli sandwich from most Californians. But it asks the most from the states wealthiest people, who would pay higher income taxes on a sliding scale for annual incomes greater than $250,000. I bet anyone here would be glad to pay 3 percent if you could make $1 million, an energetic Brown said to loud cheers. Thats all it is, thats all it is. It is fair, its needed and its balanced. Fees and tuition at community colleges, the California State University and the University of California have risen dramatically during the recession, as state aid has been reduced.

The coastside sherman arrested for possession of methamphetamine only months after crashing his boat declined to settle his case yesterday, instead opting to stand trial in January on three misdemeanors. Duncan Fergusson MacLean, 62, appeared in court Thursday to either accept a plea deal or arrange for trial on three counts of drug possession and being under the inuence. He chose the latter, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. MacLean returns to court Jan. 7 for a

pretrial conference and jury trial Jan. 28. Sheriffs deputies arrested MacLean July 6 after stopping him for a broken taillight. A search reportedly turned up a small bag of methamphetamine Duncan and a smoking pipe MacLean in his pants pockets. MacLean allegedly told investigators he has used methamphetamine for years for pain relief because of a bad back. MacLean is a prominent sherman on

the coast having served as president of the Half Moon Bay Fishermans Marketing Association and as an adviser for the Pacific Fishery Management Council and the Pacic Coast Federation of Fishermens Association. In May, he crashed his vessel, the Barbara Faye into a beach in Marin County. He reportedly fell asleep after shing for two straight days. He passed a eld sobriety test several hours after the crash and was instructed to take a drug test within 32 hours of the incident but failed to do so. MacLean is out of custody on a $7,500 bond. Products store in Sausalito earlier in the day. The stolen property from that burglary was still in the suspects possession, according to police.

Nightmare election scenarios worry both parties

By Charles Babington

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. Here in a county that knows a thing or two about Election Day meltdowns, both parties are fretting over what might go seriously wrong before, during or just after the Nov. 6 presidential election. More than 50 percent of the provisional ballots are thrown in the trash in this state, Florida state Rep. Mark Pafford told about 80 retirees who gathered for last weeks meeting of the Golden Lakes Democratic Club. Thats only a slight exaggeration 48 percent of the provisional ballots cast in Florida in 2008 were rejected. And Paffords warning

underscores anxiety in Florida and other states about legal challenges, ballot problems or bizarre outcomes that could bedevil a race Barack Obama that seems likely to be close conceivably as close as the 2000 contest that people still quarrel about. Merely the mention of that election unsettles people in Palm Beach County. The countys poorly designed buttery ballot confused thousands of voters, arguably costing Democrat Al Gore the state, and thereby the presidency.

Gore won the national popular vote by more than a half-million ballots. But George W. Bush became president after the Supreme Court Mitt Romney decided, 5-4, to halt further Florida recounts, more than a month after Election Day. Bush carried the state by 537 votes, enough for an Electoral College edge. Pregnant chad entered the political lexicon. And Americans got a jolting reminder of the Founding Fathers complex recipe for indirectly electing presidents. Even if everything goes smoothly,

its conceivable the nation will awaken to a major shock in three weeks: an Electoral College tie between President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney. That would throw the decision to the House of Representatives, currently controlled by Republicans but up for grabs in this election. A 269-269 Electoral College tie is unlikely but far from impossible. It could result, for instance, if Romney wins all the competitive states except Ohio, Wisconsin and New Hampshire. Four U.S. elections, including 2000, saw the presidency go to the person who nished second in the popular vote. There has never been an Electoral College tie. However, the U.S. House handed the 1824

election to John Quincy Adams after he nished second in both the popular vote and the Electoral College vote in a four-man race in which no one won a majority in either count. An Electoral College tie isnt the only nightmare scenario that could raise doubts about the elections fairness and worsen partisan bitterness, which already divides Americans and makes compromise in Congress so difcult. Campaign activists in many states are bracing for possible confusion, delays and even confrontations in polling places on Nov. 6. They are particularly watching Democraticleaning precincts where Republicans may challenge some peoples eligibility to vote.

Ann Romney says no more campaigns if they lose

WASHINGTON Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romneys wife says her husband will not run again if this race doesnt turn out the way they hope. Ann Romney told ABCs The View Thursday that it was a very hard thing to put her family through another White House bid after he lost the 2008 Republican primary. She said she agreed because she feels her husband can bring economic prosperity to America, but they absolutely will not do it again if he loses.

Around the nation

Also appearing was the Romneys son Josh, who was asked about brother Taggs joke after this weeks contentious debate Ann Romney that he wanted to take a swing at President Barack Obama. Josh Romney said as someone whos been slugged by Tagg, he can assure Obama he has nothing to worry about.

Scholars: Jewish shift to GOP a long way off

By Rachel Zoll

NEW YORK Like Chicago Cubs fans in spring, Jewish Republicans start every presidential election season hoping this will be their year: American Jews, who have voted overwhelmingly Democratic for decades, will start a signicant shift to the political right. But scholars who study Jewish voting patterns say not this year. Or anytime soon, for that matter. Although recent studies have found potential for some movement toward

the GOP, analysts say any revolution in the U.S. Jewish vote is a long way off. I would be very surprised to nd that this is the transformative election, said Jonathan Sarna, an expert in American Jewish history at Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass. Surveys conrm that growth in socially conservative Orthodox Jewish communities, who tend to be GOP voters, is greater than in Jewish groups from other traditions. Russian-speaking Jews are also emerging as a strong GOP con-

stituency, as evidenced when Republican Bob Turner won the special election to succeed disgraced New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner. But a generous estimate of the two groups combined would make them only a quarter of American Jews, with many living in heavily Democratic New York. Steven M. Cohen, director of the Berman Jewish Policy Archive at New York Universitys Wagner School, predicts status quo ante the way things were before for a decade or more, at least until the many Orthodox children reach voting age.

Chicago official proposes bullet tax

By Don Babwin

U.S. sees potential for anti-Taliban uprising

By Robert Burns

CHICAGO As Chicago struggles to quell gang violence that has contributed to a jump in homicides, a top elected ofcial wants to tax the sale of every bullet and rearm an effort that has national gun-rights advocates already considering a legal challenge. Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle submitted a proposed budget on Thursday that would impose a tax of a nickel for each bullet and $25 for each rearm sold in the nations second-largest county, which encompasses Chicago. Preckwinkles ofce estimates the tax will generate about $1 million a year, money that would be used for various county services including medical care for gunshot victims. Law enforcement ofcials would not have to pay the tax, but the ofce

said it would apply to 40 federally licensed gun dealers in the county. Through last week, the city reported 409 homicides this year compared to 324 during the same period in 2011. Although the violence still doesnt approach the nearly 900 homicides a year Chicago averaged in the 1990s, ofcials say gang activity was largely to blame for a rash of shootings earlier this year. Preckwinkle insists the ordinance is far more about addressing gun violence than raising money for a county that faces a budget shortfall of more than $260 million. The violence in Cook County is devastating and the wide availability of ammunition only exacerbates the problem, she told the board Thursday.

Dave Workman, of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Bear Arms, said the tax is sure to infuriate gun-rights advocates when they hear about it. Its not the law-abiding citizens stacking bodies like cordwood in Chicago; its the bad guys, he said. Preckwinkle sought to fend off that argument during her remarks Thursday. She said nearly a third of the guns recovered by police after being used in Chicago crimes had been purchased legally, initially at least, in suburban Cook County. Earlier this week during a meeting with a newspaper editor board, Preckwinkle called the countys legal gun shops a conduit for crimes in Chicago, according to a transcript released by her ofce.

AB BAND, Afghanistan Fed up with the Taliban closing their schools and committing other acts of oppression, men in a village about 100 miles south of Kabul took up arms late last spring and chased out the insurgents with no help from the Afghan government or U.S. military. Small-scale revolts in recent months like the one in Kunsaf, mostly along a stretch of desert south of the Afghan capital, indicate bits of a grass-roots, do-it-yourself anti-insurgency that the U.S. hopes Afghan authorities can transform into a wider movement. Perhaps it can undercut the Taliban in areas they still dominate after 11 years of war with the United States and NATO allies. The effort in Ghazni Province looks like a long shot. The villagers

dont readily embrace any outside authority, be it the Taliban, the U.S. or the Afghan government. American ofcials nonetheless are quietly nurturing the trend, hoping it might become a game changer, or at least a new roadblock for the Taliban. At the same time, they are adamant that if anyone can convince the villagers to side with the Afghan government, its the Afghans not the Americans. If we went out there and talked to them we would taint these groups and it would backre, said Army Brig. Gen. John Charlton, the senior American adviser to the Afghan military in provinces along the southern approaches to Kabul. Charlton, who witnessed similar stirrings in Iraq while serving as a commander there in 2007, said that in some cases the Taliban are ghting back ercely, killing leaders of the armed uprisings.

NDNU chief asked to resign
Both students and faculty called for the resignation of Notre Dame de Namur University President John Oblak the week of Oct. 19, 2007, criticizing the state of school facilities, its budget and enrollment. Both faculty and student senates took separate votes on Tuesday of that week, according to an article published Wednesday by the Argonaut, the student newspaper. Oblak, however, defended the work he does for the university. I am deeply saddened by the accusations and innuendo that have been released by certain individuals. Over the last seven and a half years, I have worked hard to help this institution solve the challenges of a Catholic university that relies primarily on tuition to meet its annual budget, Oblak said in a prepared statement Thursday. ts all about priorities.

Charity hit with sex scandal

The 65-year-old director of a Half Moon Bay Catholic charity offered a 35-year-old Half Moon Bay woman $500 in exchange for sex when she called looking for employment help, according to prosecutors who charged him with one misdemeanor count of solicitation the week of Oct. 19, 2007. The incident allegedly happened Aug. 13, 2007 but did not come to light until that week when Michael David Niece had his initial arraignment. Half Moon Bay police arrested Niece the day of the alleged solicitation, said police, but he was free from custody since on his own recognizance.

Yes on Measure H
he San Carlos Elementary School District is facing a not-so-unique yet still challenging situation. Like the Burlingame Elementary School District, it too is facing ballooning enrollment and tightening spaces for the education of the citys growing student population. And like the Burlingame district, it too is asking for a bond measure for school improvements. Through Measure H, the district is asking voters for $72 million in bonds to upgrade its aging facilities and possibly construct a new school. In short, the district needs classrooms for its school population that is growing at a significant rate in part because of its draw of high-quality schools and teachers. The district has seen an increase of about 600 students in the past five years and is expected to see an additional 600 in the next five to seven years. The district itself is in the midst of considering how best to meet the needs of the growing student population while main-

taining its excellent reputation. The district has been responsible with its money, even renancing Measure E bonds, a voter-approved $38 million initiative in 2005, this year to take advantage of low interest rates and save an estimated $1.1 million over the life of the bonds. It has shared services with the city in which the city operates middle school sports teams and there is further exploration of sharing much-needed eld space. Its education foundation is robust and it has generated income through preschool programs on its campuses. Savings could also be realized through energy-efcient upgrades like solar power and new lighting. The savings through such measures is estimated to be $7.8 million over 25 years. That is money saved that could be used directly in the classroom. The bond money would also be used to complete classroom repairs and meet current code. It will also be used to replace aging siding, remove dry rot and replace cracked and leaking windows. There is also a component that will upgrade classrooms for high-tech learning. But most importantly, it will allow the district to provide the proper space for the education of the citys children. San Carlos has been fortunate in its ability to attract high-quality teachers that directly translates to high test scores. With state funding in constant ux, there is not always an opportunity to maintain that effort while maintaining its facilities, particularly when new students are coming in at a high rate. This bond measure will allow the district to conduct its facility master plan with plenty of public input and provide adequate space and facilities for the education of its students. Vote yes on Measure H.

Letters to the editor

The emaciated women
Editor, Dorothy Dimitres Oct. 17 column, Flawed females? on some womens obsessions to stay thin and the stereotypical look we are dictated to follow was brilliant. I too have recoiled at the emaciated women in fashion magazines and movie stars that literally look like victims of forced starvation. What happened to the naturally curvy look that was prevalent and considered sexy when I was a child? Even some of my acquaintances look like skeletal stick figures. Obsessions with thinness and perfection have led some women to have cosmetic procedures by fake doctors in their kitchens. Remember the liposuction people who were shut down in the North Peninsula area who did this in their homes? I have never wanted to look like some of these current movie stars. I would rather look like Marilyn Monroe than look like Kate Moss. The best line Dorothy gave was this: When you believe you are not a legitimate human being in and of yourself and that your legitimacy hinges on outside validation and approval, you live in constant fear. Brilliant quote, Dorothy! and the defunding of Planned Parenthood. Are you wondering why his supporters arent complaining about his apparent 180 degree turns on each of those issues? Maybe its because hes so reassuring to them when he talks to them behind closed doors, you know, like when hes describing the 47 percent of irresponsible Americans who feel entitled and dependent on the government. Im sure hes making it abundantly clear to them that everything he now says is to seduce the uninformed and undecided to vote for him. He assures his mindless followers that his election is far more important than any sense of honesty.

veryone remembers the wasted taxpayer dollars ($540 million) spent on the solar company Solyndra. But few Americans realize how many other companies funded by the 2009 stimulus bill went bust. Two years after President Obama attended a groundbreaking ceremony for a Michigan plant built with $150 million in taxpayer funds to make batteries for hybrid vehicles, the company is putting workers on furlough. Not one battery was ever produced. The workers at Compact Power Manufacturing in Holland, Mich. have had their work schedules reduced to three weeks a month due to a lack of demand for lithiumion cells. Huh? The plant, operated by LG Chem, a South Korean company, opened in July, 2010 to produce batteries for the Chevrolet Volt, a plug-in hybrid vehicle built by GM. The car has experienced epic downward sales from the beginning even with a $7,500 federal tax credit for each vehicle. Less than 25,000 Volts have been sold through last September. Production delays have caused several plants to simply close. Is this what can be considered another government boondoggle? Government infringing on the private sector with public funds with no idea how to utilize them? Considering the lack of demand for electric vehicles, despite billions of dollars from the Obama administration that were supposed to stimulate it, its not surprising what has happened with LG Chem, Paul Chesser, an associate fellow with the National Legal and Policy Center, told Fox News. Just because a ton of money is poured into a product does not mean that people will buy it. Initially, the $300 million plant was going to produce approximately 15,000 batteries a year creating hundreds of new jobs. Instead, only 200 workers are employed at the plant and the batteries for the Volt arent even being made there. That task is being handled by the LG Chem plant in South Korea. Meanwhile, the Michigan plant has spent nearly two years, building infrastructure and conducting pre-production test runs, according to Fox News. Where does the money come from? Partial funding was provided by a $150 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, and tax breaks from local governments upwards of $50 million over 15 years in property taxes and $2.5 million a year in business taxes. Beginning to sound much like Solyndra? It is and there are many more stories just like this one. During the groundbreaking ceremonies two years ago, President Obama said, You are leading the way in showing how manufacturing jobs are coming right back here to the United States. Right. All that is being produced at the site is a factory that produces nothing and furloughs workers. An LG Chem spokesman said workers who are on furloughs one week a month are eligible to collect unemployment benets for that week. Your tax dollars at work.

Donnelley & Sons stock also plunged as much as 71 cents, or 6.5 percent, to $10.14 after the mistake. It later recovered most of the loss and ended the day down 9 cents. The Google report said it earned $2.18 billion from July through September, down from $2.73 billion in the same period a year ago. Prot came to $6.53 per share, and would have been $9.03 if not for accounting costs from employee stock compensation and restructuring charges related to Googles acquisition of Motorola Mobility, a cellphone maker. Still, analysts polled by FactSet, a provider of nancial data, were expecting $10.63 per share. Besides disappointing investors, the report was an embarrassment for Google. Near the top of the draft, the report said, PENDING LARRY QUOTE, apparently a place to insert a quote from Larry Page, one of Googles founders.

NEW YORK Google plummeted almost $80 per share, more than 10 percent, and trading in the stock was halted two and a half hours Thursday after a disappointing earnings report was published ahead of schedule and surprised investors. Bleak figures in the report about online advertising dragged down Facebook stock, too, and the Nasdaq composite index skidded 1 percent on a day when the broader stock market was mostly at. Google was trading at $754 per share at 12:30 p.m. EDT, then fell almost $20 in a minute after investors saw the report, a draft. It dropped as low as $676, and Google halted trading at 12:50 p.m., with the stock at $687. The stock was halted until 3:20 p.m. Companies routinely halt trading when they have news to release to investors during the market day, but two and a half hours is an unusually long suspension. When trading in Google resumed, the stock climbed slightly, but it still nished down $60.49, or 8 percent, at $695. Google blamed a printing company,

Newsweek going out of print

By Jerry Schwartz

NEW YORK There was a time when the newsweeklies set the agenda for the nations conversation when Time and Newsweek would digest the events of the week and Americans would wait by their mailboxes to see what was on the covers. Those days have passed, and come the end of the year, the print edition of Newsweek will pass, too. Cause of death: The march of time. The tempo of the news and the Web have completely overtaken the news magazines, said Stephen G. Smith, editor of the Washington Examiner and the holder of an unprecedented newsweekly triple crown nation editor at Time,

editor of U.S. News and World Report, and executive editor of Newsweek from 1986 to 1991. Where once readers were content to sit back and wait for tempered accounts of domestic and foreign events, they now can nd much of what they need almost instantaneously, on their smartphones and tablet computers. Where once advertisers had limited places to spend their dollars to reach national audiences, they now have seemingly unlimited alternatives. So on Thursday, when Newsweeks current owners announced they intended to halt print publication and expand the magazines Web presence, there was little surprise. But there was a good deal of nostalgia for what Smith called the shared conversation that the nation used

to have, when the networks, the newsweeklies and a few national newspapers reigned. Before Newsweek, there was Time the brainchild of Henry Luce and Briton Hadden. The first issue of the first newsweekly came out in 1923, and the formula, from the rst, was to wrap up the weeks news and tie it with a bow, telling it with a singular voice. Newsweek or as it was originally called, News-week came along in 1933. The founding editor was Thomas Martyn. The rst foreign editor of Time, he was British-born and had a single leg, having lost the other in World War I. His magazine sold for 10 cents and was advertised as an indispensable complement to newspaper reading, because it explains, expounds, claries.

GM to hire 3,000 workers from Hewlett-Packard

By Tom Krisher

DETROIT General Motors will hire 3,000 workers from HewlettPackard, part of a push to bring most of its computer technology in-house. The HP employees, who already work on GM projects, will help the automaker toward a larger goal: improving the software technology it puts in cars and uses to run its business. Thursdays announcement is the latest in series of technology moves at GM.

The company plans to hire 10,000 programmers and software experts over the next three to ve years. It also wants to shift technology work from outside rms into GM and to open four new IT centers. The former HP workers will help GM consolidate 23 global data centers into two. And theyll try to cut GMs software applications by 40 percent so the company uses more common programs and becomes more efcient, said GM Chief Information Ofcer Randy Mott. Theyll also nd ways to automate a number of corporate functions, saving

GM money that will be spent on electronic innovation, Mott said. Once the automation is done, workers will shift to developing software and dreaming up new dashboard devices. Mott said the employee switch is about GMs needs and has nothing to do with HPs plans to cut 29,000 jobs by October of 2014. Most of the new HP hires are in the U.S., but some are overseas. HP, based in Palo Alto, is the worlds largest maker of personal computers. It has been hurt as consumers shift away from PCs to smartphones and tablets.

AOL:Organize your email clutter with Alto

By Barbara Ortutay

Business brief
AMD to cut nearly 1,800 jobs or 15 percent of workers
SUNNYVALE Chipmaker Advanced Micro Devices Inc. says it will cut nearly 1,800 jobs, about 15 percent of its workforce, by the end of the year in order to reduce spending in the face of dwindling sales. AMD is the worlds second-biggest maker of microprocessors for personal computers and PC sales are falling. Thats partly due to more consumers shifting away from PCs and doing their computing on tablets and smartphones. CEO Rory Read says AMD needs to quickly restructure its business because trends that are reshaping the PC industry are happening faster than the company expected.

NEW YORK The Internet icon that brought email to the masses with its classic Youve got mail slogan now wants to help people organize the ood of messages in their Gmail, Yahoo mail and other accounts. AOL Inc. launched Alto on Thursday. Its not a new email service. Rather, Alto works in concert with other email accounts to clean out and organize messages, social network notications, daily deals, photos and email attachments. The service is available for free by invitation to users in a closed beta test. Users can set up Alto so that massemails, such as those from retailers or daily deals sites, skip their inbox entirely

and show up only in Alto. Instead of a text-based list that people are used to in email, Alto uses what it calls stacks. These take up most of the applications main page. You can use Altos existing stacks such as daily deals, social notications, retailers or photos. Or, you can create your own stacks for messages from family members, newsletters you subscribe to or event invitations, for example. Alto also lets users snooze certain emails, which can be useful for bill pay notications or invites. One downside Alto is not compatible with Microsofts email services. AOL said the goal of Alto is to make email less stressful, harkening back to the days when Youve got mail made people excited.

Best Bets
Hillsdale (0-2, 0-6) at Capuchino (1-0, 2-4), 3 p.m.
The Knights fell to San Mateo 3421 last week. The Mustangs galloped past El Camino, 26-12. Capuchino beat Hillsdale 35-20 last season. Hillsdale showed some signs of life last week, scoring three touchdowns in the rst half. QB Cole Carrithers threw for 233 yards and a touchdown on 10 of 23 passing. The Knights defense continues to struggle. They allowed 463 yards of offense to San Mateo last week. Capuchino RB Justin Ewing continued his assault on the Central Coast Section single-season rushing record with 240 yards and a score against El Camino. He now has 1,557 yards this season. The CCS record is 2,798 yards set by Burlingames Onan Reyes in 1997.

ST. LOUIS Adam Wainwright threw seven innings of four-hit ball and the St. Louis Cardinals roughed up Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants in an 8-3 rout Thursday night that gave them a 3-1 lead in the NL championship series. Matt Holliday, Jon Jay and Yadier Molina had two RBIs apiece to lead a 12-hit outburst by a team that batted just .198 through the rst three games of the series. The defending champion Cardinals can wrap up their second straight trip to the World Series as a wild card with a victory at home Friday night in Game 5. Lance Lynn faces Giants lefty Barry Zito. Lincecum was a bust in his rst postseason start since the World Series clincher over Texas in 2010, giving up four runs in 4 2-3 innings.

Defensive war goes to Niners


The rst major league showdown with legitimate playoff implications is upon us and it just so happens to be in the Peninsula Athletic Leagues Lake Division. And to the surprise of many, the game involves two teams that last season combined for a total of one league win. My, how times have changed. At a combined 3-0, the Vikings and the Bearcats can take major steps in ensuring a division title and a Central Coast Section berth at seasons end. A win for San Mateo puts them at 3-0 for the rst time since 2009 under Jeff Scheller. And a win for Mills gives them two wins in league for the rst time in ve seasons. Both head coaches understand

the magnitude of the game and what it means for their programs. Theres not many games that you can miss, Scheller said. If you want to win the league, you have to win every game so each game is really important. Its a game we think we have every chance to win, said Mills head coach Mike Kreiger. Its certainly the most important game of the week and if we get off to a 2-0 start, I think thats going to show the rest of the league that we mean business this season. The Daily Journal Game of the Week is scheduled for a 7 p.m. kickoff at Mills High School in Millbrae. Last week in its win against Carlmont, Mills used an explosive rst half of offense to get ahead and stay ahead of the Scots. But the Vikings had two weeks to prepare for that game

Tigers rout Yankees for four-game ALCS sweep

By Noah Trister

Tigers 8, Yankees 1
Austin Jackson added a solo shot in the seventh for Detroit, and Peralta hit another homer an inning later to make it 8-1. Detroit won its 11th American League pennant and rst since 2006. The Tigers have ve days off before the World Series starts Wednesday at defending champion St. Louis or 2010 winner San Francisco. After scoring in just three of 39 innings during the series, New York heads home to face unpleasant questions about its future following a postseason of awful hitting, benched stars and veterans showing the wear and tear of age. Rodriguez, the $275 million third baseman, was out of the starting lineup for the third time in the playoffs. Derek Jeter and

DETROIT Max Scherzer capped a stupendous stretch for Detroits starting rotation, and the Tigers advanced to the World Series for the second time in seven years by beating the New York Yankees 8-1 Thursday for a four-game sweep of the AL championship series. Miguel Cabrera and Jhonny Peralta hit tworun homers in a four-run fourth inning against CC Sabathia, who was unable to prevent the Yankees from getting swept in a postseason series for the rst time in 32 years. Scherzer took a no-hit bid into the sixth against a New York starting lineup that was again without Alex Rodriguez, who ied out with two on in the sixth as a pinch hitter.

Mariano Rivera could only watch following season-ending injuries. Detroit, without a World Series title since 1984, lost to Texas in last years ALCS but signed slugger Prince Fielder in the offseason. The excitement of that bold move subsided a bit when the Tigers struggled to a 26-32 start in the AL Central, but they overtook the Chicago White Sox in the nal 10 days of the regular season and won the division with an 88-74 record, matching the Cardinals for the fewest wins among the 10 playoff teams. And in the postseason, their starting rotation has been impeccable. Scherzer, Justin Verlander, Anibal Sanchez and Doug Fister allowed only two earned runs against the Yankees. New York was shut out once and totaled six runs in the series. The Yankees lost Jeter to a broken ankle in

the opening game, and the slumping Rodriguez was benched for Game 3. He was out of the starting lineup for Game 4 too, but A-Rod did have one last chance to turn his postseason around when Scherzer was lifted for left-hander Drew Smyly with two outs in the sixth and the Tigers up 6-1. As Smyly nished warming up, Rodriguez popped out of the dugout to pinch hit for Raul Ibanez, but with men on rst and third, he hit a routine y to center eld. He grounded out in the ninth, completing a postseason with no RBIs. The Yankees failed to win a game in a postseason series for only the fth time. They hadnt been swept since a best-of-ve ALCS against Kansas City in 1980. The last team to sweep four straight against them had been Cincinnati in the 1976 World Series.

ALAMEDA Rolando McClain arrived in Oakland two years ago expected to be the impact middle linebacker who could transform a Raiders defense that had struggled for years to stop the run. Less than halfway through his third season with the Raiders, McClain has been relegated to spot duty. McClain is now only being used in base defensive packages, playing a season-low 17 defensive plays last week in Atlanta. While McClain gures to get more time Sunday against the more run-oriRolando ented Jacksonville Jaguars, McClain he will remain a part-time player for the time being. It makes my job easy, just focus on base whenever that is and go from there, McClain said Thursday. You understand the situation, you understand the transition whatever that may be. Youre not naive to the fact of whats going on. But at the same time youre still a team player. If coach thinks thats the best thing for the defense then by all means do it. I can focus on the base downs and thats what I put my energy toward. A heralded college star at Alabama who helped the Crimson Tide win a national cham-

pionship, McClain came to Oakland as the eighth overall pick in 2010. But he has failed to produce, recording just 5 1/2 sacks, one interception, no forced fumbles and no fumble recoveries in 35 career games. McClain averaged about 68 defensive snaps a game the rst four weeks, staying on the eld in almost all of Oaklands alignments. But the coaches reassessed things during the bye week and decided to take McClain out of the nickel package. That led him to play only 17 of 55 defensive snaps last week in a 23-20 loss at Atlanta. I think when we went back and looked and saw how many plays that Rolando was playing, it had a factor in his conditioning, coach Dennis Allen said. We felt like him not playing quite as many plays would help him to play better and be more effective, and I think it had that effect in this game. Allen said McClain had his most productive game on a per play basis this season in the limited time, with his biggest contribution coming when he stopped Jason Snelling for a 1-yard loss on third down from the 1 late in the third quarter. You make the plays that are there to make, McClain said. Every ball doesnt come into your area. Every run doesnt come your way. Youre not able to make every tackle. With McClain set to make more than $4 million next year and a possible suspension for

striking out Brandon Inge as the stand-in closer for injured Jason Isringhausen in the 2006 clincher over the Tigers. Just 12 pitches in, the Cardinals had two hits and the lead and Lincecum got a visit from pitching coach Dave Righetti. Jay opened the rst with a single, Matt Carpenter walked on four pitches and Holliday singled up the middle for the lead. Allen Craig tacked on a sacrice y. Lincecum escaped trouble in the second after issuing two more walks, one of them on ve pitches to Wainwright. The Cardinals missed a chance to add on after Pete Kozma reached on third baseman Pablo Sandovals elding error to open the inning when he was thrown out trying to steal. Lincecum had retired eight in a row before running into trouble in the fth. Carpenter doubled off the top of the wall in right-center with one out. He held up until Hollidays single fell in front of fast-charging center elder Angel Pagan, but third base coach Jose Oquendo aggressively waved Carpenter home. The relay from shortstop Brandon Crawford was in time, but short-hopped catcher Hector Sanchez and Carpenter scored on a headrst slide to make it 3-1 and Holliday went to second on the play. Molinas two-out RBI single made it 4-1 and was the knockout blow for Lincecum. These teams met in Weeks 1 and 16 last season, with the 49ers beating Seattle 33-17 at home for Harbaughs rst victory as an NFL coach. This one was close until the end. After Walkers touchdown, Dashon Goldson intercepted a deep pass by Russell Wilson to thwart Seattles next drive after NaVorro Bowman clobbered the rookie quarterback as he was trying to throw. Smith gave the ball back with an interception of his own early in the fourth quarter. His fth interception of the season matched his total from all of 2011. Harbaugh went to backup Colin Kaepernick for one keeper play that lost a yard, Smith returned for third-and-goal on the 7. He scrambled to his left looking for an open receiver and Brandon Browner jumped in front of a pass intended for Randy Moss. That gave Seattle the ball back with 11:58 remaining. Yet again, the Seahawks couldnt capitalize on a night of missed opportunities and dropped balls. Gore had his third 100-yard game of the season, not to be outdone by Lynch on the other side. Lynch carried 19 times and bounced back from a 41-yard outing in Sundays comeback 24-23 home win against the Patriots. The 49ers and their top-ranked defense hadnt allowed a 100-yard rusher in 22 consecutive home games before New Yorks Ahmad Bradshaw ran for 116 yards and a touchdown Sunday and now the Niners made it twice in ve days.

relief work earlier in the postseason but reverted to regular-season form, when he was 10-15 with a 5.18 ERA, worst among qualifying starters in the National League. Wainwright was a glorified cheerleader while rehabbing from elbow reconstruction during the Cardinals improbable title drive last fall after earning the wild card on the nal day and then upsetting the favored Phillies, Brewers and Rangers to give manager Tony La Russa a chance to retire on top. Under rookie manager Mike Matheny, the Cardinals were the nal team to qualify this year, too. Once again, theyve stepped up their game. Wainwright bounced back from a rough outing in Game 5 of the NL division series, striking out ve and walking none for his rst career postseason victory as a starter. The lone damage against him came on Hunter Pences rst homer and RBI of the postseason, a second-inning clout estimated at 451 feet that soared over the visitors bullpen into the bleachers in left-center to cut the Cardinals lead to 2-1. Now, the 14-game winner is on the verge of his rst World Series as an active player since

Over 5,500 expected for Quakes ground breaking

seven quarters after an embarrassing 26-3 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday in a lopsided rematch of the NFC championship game. The tight end broke his jaw in two places at Seattle last Dec. 24 and sat out until the title game. Smith went 14 of 23 for 140 yards in another subpar performance. The defense hung tough down the stretch. NFC rushing leader Marshawn Lynch nished with 103 yards for Seattle (4-3). Its now Jim Harbaugh 3, Pete Carroll 0 since these two coaching rivals started facing off in the NFL last year after all those memorable moments in the college game. Harbaughs teams sure have shown they are quick to forget their losses. The 49ers improved to 5-0 after regular-season defeats since reigning NFL Coach of the Year Harbaugh took over before last season. Pulling off this one could give the 49ers some momentum, too. It was the rst of two straight prime time games for San Francisco, which doesnt play again until Oct. 29 at Arizona. The defensive ght left the animated coaches shaking their heads and hollering on opposite sidelines all game, offering plenty of entertainment for the sellout crowd of 69,732 at balmy Candlestick Park.

After shaking up the Major League Soccer standings for the majority of the season, the San Jose Earthquakes will be moving ground a different way this Sunday afternoon. So Quakes fans: Grab your old shovel and make your way over to Coleman Avenue and get ready to dig. The time has come for the Quakes to begin the construction of their new, 18,000-seat, soccer specific stadium. And while simply breaking ground on the privately-nanced Dave Kaval sporting venue is a major accomplishment for the team leading all of MLS in points this season, the Earthquakes are poised to make this a record-breaking day literally. This is a huge event, said Earthquakes President Dave Kaval, Weve prepared the site. We have the physical location where the eld will go when the stadium is completed. Thats where well be digging. Its a great way to celebrate a real historic event for our team and community. The Quakes announced Monday that registration for Groundbreaking Day has passed 5,500 people and they have 6,000 commemorative shovels ready for Quake fans. San Jose is attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the largest number of people to participate in a groundbreaking ceremony on Sunday. The current record of 4,532 was set on Nov. 17, 2007 in Jaipur, India by Unique Builders. An official adjudicator from Guinness World Records will be on hand to

ofciate the event. To break the Guinness World Record, participants will need to dig, using a commemorative shovel or one of their own shovels, for two minutes at the site of the groundbreaking. The Earthquakes are such a communityoriented team that I didnt want a goldenshovel event, Kaval said, I wanted a blue shovel event where everyone could participate, celebrate the historic nature of the event and have fun. Its a joyous occasion. The day will also feature a number of other memorable moments to commemorate the start of the Quakes new world class stadium. Fans who would still like to participate in the event are encouraged to bring their own shovel on Sunday. They also need to download a waiting list ticket at and bring the waiting list ticket to the event. Kaval said that the reception to the groundbreaking event has been tremendous. Its going to be a great cross-section of the entire community, he said. Its almost a day thats a dream come true. It sure is. After the groundbreaking, fans can head down to Buck Shaw Stadium and enjoy the California Classico between San Jose and the Los Angeles Galaxy. With a win, the Quakes can lock up the MLS Supporter Shield, given to the team with the best record in the league. Also, with two goals, Chris Wondolowski would tie the single-season goal-scoring record. Its been a long road, Kaval said of the new stadium planning. I think everyone would acknowledge theres been ups and downs, trials and tribulations, but I think at the end of the day, what weve always had is the best fans in professional sports. And I think that has carried us.

The Rest
El Camino (1-1, 3-3) at Carlmont (0-2, 1-5), 7 p.m.
The Colts dropped a 26-12 decision to Capuchino. The Scots lost to Mills, 28-13. Last year, El Camino beat Carlmont 31-7 to grab a share of the Lake Division title and earn the divisions lone CCS berth. El Camino saw its twogame winning streak snapped with the loss last week. In the Colts three wins this season, theyre averaging 33.6 points per game. In their three losses, the Colts are averaging 13.3 points. After a promising 33-0 win to start the season, Carlmont has dropped ve straight. In those losses, the Scots have scored a total of 52 points. I am concerned based on the proposal that was made today that things are not progressing, he said. To the contrary, I view the proposal made by the players association in many ways a step backward. Bettman said Tuesday that the sides would have to reach an agreement by Oct. 25 for a full season to be played. We came in here today with those proposals thinking that we could really make some progress, Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby said. To hear those words (from Bettman) kind of shuts it down pretty quickly. In a nutshell it doesnt look good. Fehr said two of the unions proposals would have the players take a xed amount of revenue, which would turn into an approximate 50-50 split over the term of the deal, provided league revenues continued to grow. The third approach would be a 50-50 split, as long as the league honored all existing contracts at full value. NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly disputed the unions assessment of that offer. The so called 50-50 deal, plus honoring current contracts proposed by the NHL Players Association is being misrepresented, Daly said. touchdowns on 27 carries and caught a screen pass he turned into a 62-yard touchdown. He also recovered a fumble and picked off a pass on defense. Before, against Carlmont, Latu carried the ball 13 times for 185 yards. The guys that we have, Scheller said, theyre very humbled and very unselsh. They dont care who gets the accolades, they dont care who gets the touchdowns, they just want to win. They dont get down when things dont go their way. They dont put their heads downs and thats what makes them play four quarters. Thats going to help us every game forward. Mills has proven they can be cerebral with their offensive attack and, while the San Mateo defense is much improved this season, the Vikings are balanced with Rai Lal throwing the ball and Antonio Jeffrey running it. Hes a phenomenal playmaker, Scheller said of Jeffrey. And their quarterback is really smart. Theyve come all the way around. Its a huge game. They have a lot to play for.


attempts (35) and yards (355). He also tossed three touchdowns. Jose Plancarte threw for 150 yards and rushed for a touchdown for Kings Academy. Luke Vereschagins 28-yard field goal was the game winner for Kings Academy last week. All of Kings Academys scoring came in the fourth quarter.

NHLs Bettman disappointed with unions proposals


TORONTO NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman received three counterproposals from the players association on Thursday and left the negotiating table thoroughly disappointed. No new talks have been scheduled, and the possibility of a full hockey regular season is quickly shrinking. This is not a good day, union executive director Donald Fehr said. It should have been. The players association offered multiple options in response to the NHLs offer on Tuesday that called for an 82-game season and a 50-50 split of hockey-related revenues between owners and players. Bettman said that proposal was the best that we could do and added that the two sides are still far apart. None of the three variations of player share that they gave us even began to approach 50-50, either at all or for some long period of time, Bettman said. Its clear were not speaking the same language. Bettman said he was still hopeful the league can have a full season, but time is running out to make that happen.

Jefferson (0-1, 1-5) at South City (2-0, 3-3), 7 p.m.

The Indians lost 14-7 to Sequoia last week. The Warriors beat Menlo School in a shootout last week, 4339. Jefferson beat South City 106 the last time these teams met in 2010. Jeffersons touchdown last week was its rst since a 16-15 win over Balboa Sept. 15. In the last two weeks, South City has scored a combined 79 points. In its rst four games, the Warriors scored a total of 53. South City had 533 yards of offense last week, including 427 yards on the ground. The Warriors defense allowed a total of 78 points combined in their rst four games. In their last two, theyve allowed 67.

Menlo-Atherton (2-0, 4-2) at Half Moon Bay (0-2, 1-5), 3 p.m.

The Bears got past Burlingame last week, 28-21. The Cougars were pounded by Aragon 42-7. This is the first meeting between these teams since a 20-6 M-A win in 2006. Tasi Teus 55-yard interception return proved to be the winning score for M-A last week. Alan Sakalia rushed for two scores for the Bears. Half Moon Bay had 236 yards of offense against Aragon, led by RB Ben Thortons 87 yards on 19 carries. Albert Duenas scored a 10-yard touchdown for the Cougars.

against Carlmont and San Mateo presents Mills with a slew of matchup problems that the Scots just couldnt. We feel were well-prepared for what weve seen on lm, Kreiger said. Its a similar offense ... so we are as prepared as we were for Carlmont. They do have a few more athletes that will create some problems for us. But at the same time, the success from last week will carry over into having our kids being very condent in our game plan on both sides of the ball. Chief among Mills problems this week is young Line Latu, a now two-time member of the Daily Journal Athletic Honor Roll for league performances that are quickly cementing him as one of the more promising playmakers in the Lake Division. Against Hillsdale, he rushed for 235 yards and three

Serra (2-1, 5-1) vs. Sacred Hear t Cathedral (0-3, 1-5) at Kezar Stadium, 7 p.m.
The Padres suffered a heartbreaking 35-34 loss to Bellarmine last week. The Irish were buried by Valley Christian, 43-0. Last year, Serra beat SHC 35-14. Serra is now 1 for 2 on 2-point conversions to win games. The Padres went for two in their 36-35 overtime win over Buhach Valley Sept. 20. Since beating Terra Nova in its season opener, SHC has lost ve straight. The Irish have been shut out in two of their last three games.

Menlo (1-1, 5-1) at Kings Academy (1-0, 1-5), 7 p.m.

Menlo lost their rst game of the season to South City last, 43-39. Kings Academy stunned Woodside 9-6 for its rst win of the season. Menlo QB Jack Heneghan had a season high for completions (21),

Continued from page 11
Heart Prep posting a 33-21 win. The combination of QB Nat Blood and WR Aldo Severson continues to put up big numbers for Aragon. Blood completed 11 of 18 passes for 178 yards and four touchdowns. Severson caught ve passes for 117 yards and two scores. The Aragon offense leads the Bay

Division in scoring at 37.8 points per game. SHP was held way below its season average of total offense of 354 yards when it managed just 229 yards against Terra Nova. QB Kevin Donahoe completed only 6 of 20 passes against the Tigers, but he did throw for two touchdowns.

Woodside (0-2, 2-4) at Sequoia (1-1, 5-1), 7 p.m.

The Wildcats were shocked by Kings Academy last week, 9-6. The Cherokees rebounded from their loss to South City two

weeks ago to squeak past Jefferson, 14-7. Last year, Woodside outscored Sequoia, 3528. This is the battle for bragging rights in Redwood City. RB Tommy Cook scored Woodsides lone touchdown last week. Sequoia managed only two scores despite amassing 288 yards of offense. QB Mike Taylor scored both touchdowns. Tommy Lopiparo intercepted three passes for the Cherokees.

Burlingame (0-2, 2-4) at Terra Nova (1-0, 3-3), 7 p.m.

The Panthers suffered a disappointing 28-21 loss to Menlo-Atherton last week. The Tigers got past Sacred Heart Prep, 20-13. Last year, Terra Nova held on to beat Burlingame, 35-28. Burlingame battled back from a 140, rst-quarter decit to tie the game at 21 in the fourth quarter, but an M-A interception return turned out to be the difference. Terra Nova racked up 445 yards of total offense last week. QB Kren Spain passed for 137 yards and rushed for 162, with two touchdowns.


leaders from displaying banners with religious messages such as, If God is for us, who can be against us, after the Freedom From Religion Foundation complained. The advocacy group says the messages violate the First Amendment clause barring the government or a publicly funded school district, in this case from establishing or endorsing a religion. Gov. Rick Perry, who appointed Thomas, a fellow Republican, to the district court to ll a vacancy, issued a statement welcoming the ruling. Todays ruling is a victory for all who cherish our inalienable right to freedom of speech and religious expression, Perry said. I am proud of the cheerleaders at Kountze ISD for standing rm in the knowledge of these endowed rights and their willingness to be an example in defending those rights, which a secular group has needlessly tried to take away. receivers. That doesnt gure to be the case Sunday. Jacksonville has a struggling second-year quarterback in Blaine Gabbert and an elite runner in JonesDrew so it gures the Jaguars will stick with the run game and McClain will get more time. The last time these two teams met, the Jaguars ran for 234 yards in a 3831 victory that McClain missed with a foot injury. All I remember is them running the ball, McClain said. You have to take that personally. We have to go out and try to at least stop that run. If you dont do anything else, stop the run, let them know you cant do this two times in a row. The demotion of McClain led to signicantly more playing time for rookie outside linebacker Miles Burris, who had been leaving the eld in nickel situations the rst four games.

Judge rules for cheerleaders in Bible banner suit
AUSTIN, Texas A judge ruled Thursday that cheerleaders at an East Texas high school can display banners emblazoned with Bible verses at football games, saying the school districts ban on the practice appears to violate the students free speech rights. District Judge Steve Thomas granted an injunction requested by the Kountze High School cheerleaders allowing them to continue displaying religious-themed banners pending the outcome of a lawsuit, which is set to go to trial next June 24, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said.

legal trouble off the eld looming, he could be in his nal season with the Raiders.

CC remains a distinctive Volkswagen

By Ann M. Job

Volkswagens upscale CC compact sedan is nicely put together with a coupe silhouette, pretty lines, a taut, rened ride, well-crafted interior and for 2013, seats for ve. In response to dealer and customer feedback, VW removed the two rear bucket seats, with console between, and replaced them with a padded and sculpted bench seat that has a resting spot and seat belt for a middle passenger. Its the rst time since the CC debuted in the in the 2009 model year that the car has the traditional five-seat configuration of other sedans. In a ve-seat option was already offered. Further changes for 2013 include restyled front and rear with standard bi-Xenon highintensity discharge headlamps that swivel up to 15 degrees as the car goes through corners. The 2013 CC also gets light-emitting diodes for its taillamps and license plate illumination. The interior is upgraded, too, with new head restraints that can adjust fore and aft and automatic climate control with humidity sensor that helps keep window glass free of condensation. Best of all, the CC comes with free scheduled maintenance for three years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes rst. This Carefree Maintenance Program is on all new VWs. CC pricing rises slightly from the 2012 model year. Starting manufacturers suggested retail price, including destination charge, for a base 2013 CC Sport is $31,435 with manual

nently sculpted lower sills, and the CC looks somewhat low to the ground. In fact, it is shorter in overall height than the TSX and Verano, and passengers set down a bit onto the seats, which means theres no good way to look over or around taller vehicles. From the start, VW touted the CC as an affordable four-door coupe, and certainly, its less pricey than the Mercedes-Benz CLS four-door coupe that starts at more than $70,000 for 2013. The CC also has a coupes kind of doors frameless. But Americans bought just 29,502 CCs last calendar year. The test CC, a base model with six-speed manual transmission, handled emergency maneuvers as well as day-to-day driving with confidence and composure. Highway travel was pleasant, too. The test car rode with its 15.75-foot-long body well-controlled and tamped down over road bumps. There was never any wallowy or loose feel in the CC motions. And, most road bumps were well-managed below the car, leaving passengers to feel mostly mild vibrations. Only over sustained broken pavement did the ride feel busy. Electric, power-assisted, rack-and-pinion steering has variable speed assist, so steering had a consistent feel. The driver always had a palpable sense that the test CC was well connected to the road. The CC seemed to slice through air without wind noise. There was a bit of road noise from the 17-inch, all-season tires. Shoppers may not expect a six-speed manual in a sedan, but its in the CC for those who want it. The shifting had a bit of a loose, rubbery feel, and the clutch pedal didnt take a lot of effort and engaged the clutch quickly. The test car had some lag at startup, evidently from the turbo, but once the turbo got going, the forceful grunt pulled the car strongly. Peak torque of 207 foot-pounds in this 3,300-pound car comes on at a low 1,700 rpm. VW recommends premium gasoline for top performance, and the test cars fuel economy of nearly 24 miles per gallon in 70 percent city driving and 30 percent highway driving did not impress. Still, with a sizable gas tank capable of holding 18.5 gallons, the test CC had a range of 440 miles. The CC tank is 18.6 percent larger than that of the Verano, which has the same fed-

transmission and $32,535 with dual-clutch automatic. The base CC comes with a 200horsepower, turbocharged, direct-injection, gasoline four cylinder. A 280-horsepower gasoline V-6 is available on the upper level Executive model that starts at $42,245. It comes with automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Note: Allwheel drive is only offered on the V-6-powered CC. Competitors to the CC include other upscale, front-wheel drive, compact sedans with four-cylinder engines, such as the 2013 Acura TSX, which has a starting MSRP plus destination charge of $31,405 and base, 201-horsepower powerplant. Meantime, the 2013 Buick Verano sedan has a starting retail price of $23,965 with 180-horsepower, four-cylinder engine and automatic transmission. The base four cylinders of the ILX and Verano are not turbocharged. But later in the 2013 model year, the Verano will add a 250-horsepower, turbo four cylinder. Neither Acura nor Buick includes free scheduled maintenance. The CC started life as a VW with standout aesthetics, and the distinctive styling continues with the new hood, grille, lights and bumpers. The sides now have more promi-

eral government fuel economy rating as the CC with manual 21/32 mpg. The CCs rear-seat legroom of 37.3 inches is more than whats measured in the TSX and Verano. But the CCs sloping roofline requires some ducking to get inside and restricts back-seat headroom. Its measured at 36.6 inches without a sunroof, which is less than the Verano and TSX with sunroof. By the way, a sunroof is available only on the top CC models that start at $36,180. In comparison, the TSX has a standard moonroof. The TSX also has standard leathertrimmed seats, while the CC has standard leatherette seat trim in all but the $42,245 Executive model. Other restrictions in CC amenities seem off-putting, too. The pricey Executive model is the only one with rearview camera. Consumer Reports lists CC reliability as below average.

Low budget thrills

Little regard for plot in Paranormal 4
By Justin Lowe

LOS ANGELES Mockumentary lmmakers Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (Catfish) know a thing or two about misdirecting an audience, as they proved again with 2011s Paranormal Activity 3. Together with returning screenwriter Christopher Landon, this time around they seem short on new ideas, however, relying more on the series reputation for lowbudget thrills to attract audiences. Regardless, by now Paramounts franchise is a brand unto itself, and its unlikely that anything will stop the rst few waves of fans boosting Paranormal Activity 4 up the chart until at least through Halloween. Quickly recapping with flashbacks and documentary-style introductory cards the conclusion of Paranormal Activity 2, when in a prequel to 2007s original lm Katie (Katie Featherston) killed her sister Kristi (Sprague Grayden) and abducted her nephew Hunter (William Juan Prieto), the current version jumps ahead to 2011, relocating the action from California to Nevada and introducing an entirely new family. Teenager Alex (Kathryn Newton), her 6-year-old brother Wyatt (Aiden Lovekamp) and their parents (Stephen Dunham and Alexondra Lee) live a typical middle-class suburban life, even if they think their neighbors across

Matthew Lillard picks top five moviegoing memories

By Christy Lemire

LOS ANGELES Matthew Lillards lmography runs the gamut, from playing a killer in the original Scream and the goofy Shaggy in the Scooby-Doo movies to showing a more dramatic side of his talent opposite George Clooney in The Descendants and Clint Eastwood in Trouble With the Curve. This week, he adds directing to his resume with the release of his rst feature, Fat Kid Rules the World, starring Jacob Wysocki as a lonely, suicidal teen who forges an unlikely

friendship with a charismatic, junkie drop-out (Matt OLeary). The two literally save each others lives, which may sound corny and feel-good, but Lillard shows a deft touch and nds just the right balance of absurdity and Matthew Lillard uplift. So we asked him to take over the Five Most space this week with a personal list he suggested himself: movies that impacted him so greatly, he remembers exact-

ly where and when he saw them. Here he is, in his own words:

The Blair Witch Project, Park City, Utah, Sundance Film Festival, 1999:
My sister Amy worked as an independent lm publicist. She was hired to release The Blair Witch Project at the Sundance Film Festival. I was at the festival that year with SLC Punk, and one night, my sister invited me to attend a midnight screening. She purposely didnt tell me anything about the lm so when I sat down, I had no preconceived expectations. Afterwards, as the lights came

up, I sat there, bug-eyed and completely shellshocked. The rest of the room was sitting in the same silence as I was. It was epic. I distinctly remember looking down this row of people sitting next to me, all strangers, and asking the question: What the HELL was that?

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Wellington, New Zealand, 2003:
I was in New Zealand shooting Without a

GUARDIANS: PHOTOGRAPHS BY ANDY FREEBERG, AT STANFORDS CANTOR ARTS CENTER. In 2008, Photographer Andy Freeberg traveled to Russia intending to document the countrys evolution since his last visit in the 1980s. But once there, Freeberg focused his lens on the retirement-aged women guarding Russias national treasures in the art museums. This serendipitous undertaking resulted in 16 critically acclaimed portraits of Russian art museum guards at work, now installed in Guardians: Photographs by Andy Freeberg, an Exhibition in Three Parts, at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University. Freeberg, a San Francisco-based photojournalist whose assignments for magazines such as Fortune, Time and Sports Illustrated have taken him across the world, discovered that despite sitting for hours and earning little pay, the women guards loved their jobs; they were deeply proud of Russias culture and felt honored to protect and share its treasures. He was struck by how the guards unconsciously resembled and complemented the objects in their care. One woman wore a sweater trimmed with the same blue that Henri Matisse used in the painting she sat below, Still Life with Blue Tablecloth. Another sat cross-armed, her bare forearms as muscular and pale as those in the Michelangelo plaster casts around her. The photographs emphasize how the women become part of the visitors overall museum experience. Hoping to remain inconspicuous, Freeberg used a small 35-millimeter digital camera (Canon Eos 5D) and available light. He sized his resulting prints as wide as five feet, nearly life-size, so that viewers might feel they were actually in a museum with the women. The layout of the Cantor Centers exhibition furthers this museum-within-amuseum experience. The 16 works on loan

Paddle and halfway through production we had a three-day break ... for the world premiere of Peter Jacksons The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. To commemorate the films success, Jackson and his team were throwing a premiere party to end all parties. There was a parade that stretched over a mile long that included armies of elves, orcs, armored knights and everything in between. The one ring to unite them all stood atop the premiere theatre and cast a shadow over guests as they led in. Abraham Benrubi, a co-star from Without a Paddle, and I were lucky enough to score premiere tickets. We sat directly behind Jackson and his cast. As the lights came up, Benrubi and I both had tears in our eyes and were blown away by the moment. I was a kid who lived in his imagination, and those books helped dene the man I am today.

steam and see a movie. It was the opening weekend of Training Day, and we were one of the last few people to get tickets to the 10 p.m. screening at the Kabuki Theatre near the Mission District. As the lights dimmed and the movie started, I heard a low rumble somewhere toward the back of the theatre. A huge ght had erupted between two groups of men. As the lights blasted on, someone screamed, He has a knife! The entire audience started to panic and struggled to get out of the way. The skirmish was over as quickly as it had begun, but the effects of a dude swinging a knife lingered. The manager of the theatre came in as soon as everyone had settled down and offered to restart the movie or give us a rain check. My wife and I chose to stay, and the adrenaline mixed with the violence of that lm left us both shaken.

Fat Kid Rules the World, Austin,Texas, South by Southwest Film Festival, 2012:
Its the movie I directed. Its a bit selfish to include, but the world premiere meant the world to me. I optioned the book Fat Kid Rules the World 10 years ago and getting the story to the screen was no easy task. We premiered it at the SXSW Film Festival and the night was a huge success. When you screen your movie for the rst time, that movie ies away and you dont ever get it back. The night we premiered the lm, I dont remember what I wore or who was there. I dont remember a single thing that was said at the Q&A or what I had to drink at the after-party. When I think about that night, I think about hugging Jacob Wysockis mom and dad and seeing the tears in their eyes. I remember my wife holding my hand as we walked to our car to leave. Its probably the best memory I have as an artist, and Ill keep it until the day I die. remain perfunctory overall. Laptop webcams and camera phones are substituted for the earlier video-surveillance cams, but little has changed visually in the style of the filmmakers alternation of static and frantic handheld shots, mixed with a surfeit of distracting closeups. Asymmetrically framed scenes, staccato editing techniques and oppressive ambient sound (and the ominous lack of a score) are substituted for any real narrative development, leaving a plot essentially consisting of a series of setups followed by frightening payoffs. Weak attempts to introduce a smattering of satanic symbology are belatedly superfluous. Its just such lack of creative investment that inevitably leads to further sequels, if a theatrical audience can actually be sustained going forward. Paranormal Activity 4, a Paramount release, is rated R for language and some violence/terror. Running time: 95 minutes. Motion Picture Association of America rating definition for R: Restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.

Aliens, Orange County, Calif., 1986:

I was with my dad standing in line to buy tickets for over an hour. A packed theatre and the rush of excitement as the lights went down, James Camerons Aliens was totally perfect for a 16year-old boy. I laughed; I freaked out; I thought it was bitchin. Early in my career as an actor, people asked who inspired me. I would always say Bill ing her out, the mysterious forces behind Robbies visit become more assertive, squarely threatening the familys survival while inexorably tracking back to the earlier abduction of Hunter. By now the basis of the Paranormal Activity franchise, concerning Katies possession by a demonic force that results in a series of malevolently haunted houses, is well-known to those who care to follow each new iteration. The fourth installment adds very little new information while playing out the inevitably unpleasant outcomes that await the characters, preferring to recycle plot elements from previous films. Fairly mild in tone and riffing if not quite ripping off a collection of horror classics that includes The Shining, Rosemarys Baby and Poltergeist, both the franchises premise and its execution nevertheless remain rudimentary, with the narrative and character backstories representing more of a sketch than a fully realized vision of the supernatural world that Katie inhabits. Although Newton and Shively are likable enough in their roles as the sleuthing teens, the other performances

Wine gets in the spirit with new liquor blends

By Michelle Locke

Restaurant cellphone distractions still irritate

By Michael Hill

ALBANY, N.Y. The digital divide is wider than ever between diners who talk, tweet and snap pictures mid-meal and those who wish theyd just shut up, shut down and be present. Caught at the center of the discord are restaurant owners and chefs, who must walk the careful line of good customer service for both those who dine under the inuence of smart phones, and those who wont. But as the devices have morphed into an unrelenting appendage for texting, photography and games, more restaurateurs are challenged to keep the peace. Owners who once relied mostly on no cellphones, please signs, increasingly are experimenting with everything from penalties for using phones, discounts for not and outright bans on photography. Theres no place to get away from the chatter, said Julie Liberty of Miami, who started the Facebook page Ban cellphones From Restaurants earlier this year. Everything has a soundtrack, including when you go into the ladies room. Thats just not right. Its a touchy issue. Consider the crush of news coverage Eva Restaurant in Los Angeles generated when it began offering patrons a 5 percent discount if they leave their phone at the door. Online comments ranged from cheers of YES! to others who said their phones would have to be pried from their cold, dead hands. The policy is working, though. Evas Rom Toulon said about 40 percent of our customers will leave their cellphones at the door. After a few cocktails and glasses of wine, it can be challenging to remember that you left the phone behind, he said. The burst of headlines for Eva came after a Burlington, Vt., deli took on cyber-folk hero status for posting a sign informing customers that $3 will be added to their bill if you fail to get off your phone while at the counter. Its rude. Disgusted diners are doing their part too with games like phone stack, in which everyone places their phones in a stack in the middle of the table. The rst person who reaches for their phone pays the bill for all. These are more creative approaches to the no cellphone signs now common in restaurants ranging from highbrow to quickeats. The landmark Boston restaurant Locke-Ober asks diners in language appropriate for a place with a dress code to kindly refrain from using cellphones. In Albany, N.Y., the Hamilton Street Cafe has a more direct, hand-drawn No cellphones at the counter sign with a phone with a red X through it. Owner Sue Dayton said the sign by the counter helps keep the lunch line moving. You get a half-hour for lunch. You walk up here and you have to stand behind someone not paying attention enough to say what kind of bread they want on their BLT because theyre on their cellphone, Dayton said. Irritation over distracted dining has broadened with the rise of photo-sharing apps like Instagram. The popular online scrapbook Pinterest is clogged with pictures of everything from pan fried noodles to poutine snapped moments before digestion. Chefs who, as a rule, put a premium on control dont always take kindly to their dining rooms becoming shooting galleries.

Cognac blended with moscato? Pink wine mixed with port? And how about a mashup of sparkling white wine and vodka? Hard liquor is showing a softer side as producers shake things up with new blends that put wine and spirits in the same bottle. Companies are going out of the box, observes Ted Carmon, spirits buyer for the BevMo! liquor chain. Theres no ofcial category name so far Spirited wines? Laid-back liquors? but Carmon traces liquors anything goes movement to Pinnacle Whipped, the wildly popular whippedcream avored vodka that came out a couple of years ago. That really rewrote the rules on what kind of avors could be used. Bill Newlands, president of Beam Inc., which bought Pinnacle Vodka earlier this year, sees the intensely avored Whipped as playing into a trend of consumers whether its an alcohol beverage or anything else, looking for more avor reward. Theyre looking for two things, he says, avor and avor intensity. That quest inuenced Beams latest product, Courvoisier Gold, which blends French cognac with moscato wine from the South of France. Research indicated customers, particularly women, wanted a cognac with less alcohol but more avor, and Gold answers on both counts coming in at 36 proof, or 18 percent alcohol by volume, well below the 40 percent (80 proof) of traditional cognac. Suggested retail for a 750-milliliter bottle is $24.99. Gold follows last years introduction

of Courvoisier Rose, which blends cognac with French red wine grapes. Both blends can be drunk on the rocks or mixed into cocktails. Gold and Rose are both grape-ongrape affairs since cognac, a type of brandy made in the Cognac wine region in France, is a distilled grape spirit. But TUNE, a new product from ABSOLUT, goes in a different direction, blending grain-based vodka with a sparkling white wine, New Zealand sauvignon blanc to be precise. It comes in a Champagne-style bottle decorated with gold stars, swirls and other patterns which has an outer wrapper of silver, black and gold that unzips for presentation pizazz. TUNE, so named for the dual notes of vodka and wine, is 14 percent alcohol by volume and has a suggested retail of $31.99. Another beverage taking a lighter touch is Croft Pink, which is a port (not a liquor but wine thats been fortied by addition of a spirit). Croft traces its roots to 1588, making classic ruby and tawny ports. Croft Pink is made from traditional port grapes but with light contact between the wine and the grape skins, resulting in a light ruby color. It was made with cocktails in mind to introduce port to a new audience. Alcohol content is 19.5 percent by volume, similar to traditional port. Suggested retail is $19.99 for a 750-milliliter bottle. Lain Bradford, a South Carolina wine and spirits writer who blogs at, has noticed the blurring of the lines between wines and spirits, especially in restaurants, for instance margaritas made with fruit wine thats been avored to taste like tequila.

Owners of these properties have two options they can purchase much more affordable optional flood insurance to best protect their home or they can cancel their policy and carry no flood insurance, according to the press release. In both cases, property owners will be eligible for a refund and will need to initiate the refund process with their insurance agent and lender.

$6,300 annually for healthy meals but households of less than $10,000 spend only on average $3,200 and even those making between $40,000 and $50,000 only spend approximately $5,515, Starbird said. Part of the problem is stigma, particularly among older adults, and misperceptions about who qualies. The undocumented often worry participation will lead to immigration issues and older people believe erroneously that somehow accepting benefits will keep younger people out of work from receiving them, said Dennis Stewart, the western regional director for SNAP. Stewart said a key is education of potential recipients but also of leaders and other residents about just who is food insecure. Hunger cuts across gender, race, age and locales, the participants agreed. Stewart argued that solving hunger not only benefits households but the county as a whole because an increase in participation of just 10 percent would bring $3.9 million in potential new benefits and $7.2 comprehension earlier in the year. Basically, he gets to work with students more. I do want to talk with kids every day. And, not just, Whats up? But, What are you working on? he said. Students seem to be responding well to the change. Many were unaware the trend had any name. Freshman Natalie Lewis said the class is completely different from previous history courses shes taken. Its good because we can take notes at our own speed and hear lectures again if we need, she said, although hasnt actually rewatched a lecture. Moore also liked the ability to work on her own. She previously attended a Montessori school which was more project-based, which is a bit closer to the model Lindgren-Streicher is using. million in economic impacts. Federal and state aid generates millions in economic impacts and children in particular are not left struggling to thrive educationally because they are hungry. You cant learn in school if you have an empty belly, said U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, DSan Mateo, who recalled trying to live on $4.50 a day as part of a food stamp challenge. Speier said she ate a lot of tuna, stretched one tomato all week and thought about food all day long. With the advent of the Affordable Care Act, the need will be even greater because the expected Medi-Cal surge will also bring increases in other services, like CalFresh, said Kim McCoy Wade, a consultant with the Alliance to Transform CalFresh. One-time money will also be available through 2015 for counties who integrate their health and Human Service Agency offerings, Wade said. Wade said Oregon is a model to emulate because more than 80 percent of applicants Not all students work on their own. Students can work together, and LindgrenStreicher encourages it. Hes found a positive peer pressure effect from students who do work together. If one student is absent, for example, the other will text to say what was missed and what needs to be worked on. Thursday was unique as it was an open house day. People could sign up to observe and ask questions about the ipped classroom. Gunn High School French teacher Anne Dumontier was there to note differences. Shes also ipping her class for the rst year. Unlike Lindgren-Streicher, Dumontiers students access lectures at home then spend more time in class practicing language. Both teachers noted the changes allow them to have more time with students. Both agree things will be tweaked as they learn and start to implement these changes. Both have also


are processed in one day through streamlined services. The state also throws out demands that are not federal requirements, such as family verication, she added. But aside from the technical and tangible needs to solve the countys hunger problem, speakers yesterday said one step is acknowledging the issue even exists. Jackson recounted meeting a custodian at an event who asked for food help, illustrating that even those who may look sufcient might not be. Hungry people are all around you. You just cant see them, Jackson said. County residents can apply for CalFresh online at or request an application by phone and nd ofce locations by calling (800) 223-8383. Anyone who needs food can call Second Harvests Food Connection hotline at (800) 984-3663.

cost of living in San Mateo County remains a substantial barrier to food access because the denition of poor is different in the secondwealthiest county in the state. Poverty looks different here than in other parts of the county, said Kathy Jackson, chief executive ofcer of Second Harvest Food Bank. To qualify for CalFresh, a household of three typically needs to earn less than $2,070 a month while the average monthly rent for a two-bedroom apartment is $2,159, according to the countys Department of Housing. Ironically, Jackson said those who make the least have more options because they qualify for food assistance. The real challenge is helping those who make more than $24,000 annually but not enough to adequately survive on their own. A family of four should spend

sons in a variety of ways videos, textbooks, online. Lindgren-Streicher doesnt have a set of computers in his class. Students share what Lindgren-Streicher has or bring in their own. They can take notes in a fashion that works best for them. There are deadlines for projects and tests like any other class. However, students dont move on until they have mastered a section. While its a learning process even for Lindgren-Streicher, hes noticed differences. Increasing his chances to work individually with students has helped him notice a students challenges like reading, spelling,

noted wonderful outcomes. Lindgren-Streicher, for example, knows his students a bit more. Dumontiers class has worked together more. As such, the atmosphere is more collaborative. And, she has the opportunity to introduce cultural activities to students. Not all teachers are making such changes. In fact, both Lindgren-Streicher and Dumontier noted not having a ton of teachers on the campus with whom to discuss ideas. Those interested, however, can nd a vibrant community online. Lindgren-Streicher turns to Twitter for ideas, to share challenges and, often, support.

Airstrikes in Syria kill at least 43

By Ben Hubbard

Around the world

Diplomats: EU chiefs agree on bank supervisor
BRUSSELS European leaders reached agreement Thursday on creating a single supervisor for banks in the countries that use the euro that will be up and running sometime next year, German diplomats said. The deal reached at a summit of European leaders in Brussels represents a compromise between the Germans and French, who had been tussling over how best shore up the regions stricken banking system one of the main causes of Europes debt crisis. In Irelands case, the governments attempts to rescue failing banks forced it into a bailout. Some fear Spain could face that fate, too. France has been pushing to get all 6,000 banks in the 17 countries that use the euro under the supervision of one European body by the end of this year.

BEIRUT Syrian warplanes hammered a strategic city captured by rebels, leaving behind scenes of carnage captured Thursday on amateur videos that showed a man holding up two child-sized legs not connected to a body and another carrying a dismembered arm. Activists said airstrikes over the past two days on opposition targets across Syrias north have killed at least 43 people. The city of Maaret al-Numan, located strategically on a major north-south highway connecting Aleppo and Damascus, was captured by rebels last week and there has been heavy ghting around it ever since. Rebel brigades from the surrounding area have poured in to

defend the town. Online videos have shown them ring mortars at regime troops, and they claimed to have shot down a government helicopter on Wednesday. Since it was captured a week ago, the city in northern Idlib province and its surroundings have been the focus of one of the heaviest air bombardments since President

Bashar Assads military first unleashed its air force against rebels over the summer. Local activists in the city say warplanes are continuously overhead, and entire villages are largely deserted and peppered with destroyed homes. The scenes from the city provide a window into the carnage being wrought by the Syrian militarys increasing reliance on airstrikes to ght rebels waging a civil war to topple Assad. Rights groups say the airstrikes often hit civilian areas. And this week, U.S.-based Human Rights Watch accused Syria of using cluster bombs, which pose grave dangers to civilians. The regime contends that it is ghting terrorists backed by foreign powers who seek to destroy Syria and denies using cluster bombs.
