As demand for Spanish immersion program
expands in Redwood City, school district of-
cials are considering a grade conguration
shakeup by sending Adelante sixth graders to
Kennedy Middle School.
Enrollment at Adelante Spanish Immersion
Elementary School has grown in the past
three years to be close to 600, over the 540
student capacity limit for the facility. Since
the school is one of choice, most students are
driven, which increases neighborhood trafc.
Neighbors have complained the trafc would
prevent emergency vehicles from accessing
the area if needed. As a result, the district is
considering relocating Adelantes sixth grade
students onto Kennedy Middle School.
We just have too many students on the
Adelante campus, said board President
Shelly Masur, who added its a safety issue.
The campus was at 472 students during the
2007-08 school year and currently houses
567, according to a staff report. Budget cuts
leading to increased class sizes is the primary
reason for the increase. More students has led
to more cars on the neighborhood roads.
Redwood City agreed to install speed bumps
on Mitchell Way to slow trafc, according to
the staff report.
To reduce students at the school, the super-
intendent and two trustees worked with staff
and parents to come up with two possible

Private school to build new high

Calling it a awed process, the San
Mateo Planning Commission voted
unanimously last night that the newly
opened 7-Eleven in a predominately res-
idential neighborhood is not legal.
A determination was made by city
staff in March, that based on the long-
term use of the site as a market more
than 70 years and the fact that the use
was not abandoned, the store on the site
is considered a legal non-conforming
But the Planning Commission thought
otherwise and determined that since the
market use at the former Stangelinis
Italian Deli & Hilltop Market at 501 N.
San Mateo Drive was discontinued for
more than six months that it must now
revert back to residential.
The City Council will next take up
Planning Commissions recommenda-
tions at its Jan. 14 meeting.
If the council follows the Planning
Commissions recommendations, the 7-
Eleven will have to close almost imme-
diately, however, litigation has been
It was a testy public hearing as some
city ofcials and others involved with
the property, including Councilman Jack
Matthews, were subpoenaed to testify at
last nights meeting.
City Planner Lisa Ring, also subpoe-
naed, was heckled by attendees of last
nights meeting for some of the testimo-
ny she gave, including the fact that an
opinion sent in an email from an interim
city attorney was all that was needed for
the market use to continue on the site.
Ring also said she had no idea that
previous determinations by city staff had
concluded the land be reverted back to
residential after the deli closed more
than two years ago.
Those subpoenaed, including City
Planner Stephen Scott, were even asked
whether they essentially were offered
favors, money or gifts to allow the 7-
Eleven to occupy the site.

A former assistant nurse manager at Kaiser
Permanente Medical Center claims she was
red from the South San Francisco hospital
after blowing the whistle on unsafe patient care.
Helen Raquipiso is suing Kaiser Foundation
Hospitals Inc. for retaliation and wrongful ter-
mination, according to the suit led in San
Mateo County Superior Court on Monday.
The suit claims that, in return for complaining
about patient care and working conditions, she
was given a negative performance review and
written warnings, placed on a performance
improvement plan and nally red.
Frank Beirne, senior vice president and
area manager, Kaiser Permanente San
Mateo Area, said he could not comment on
specifics of personnel matters or pending
litigation but that the organization is recog-
nized for its provision of quality health
We are vigilant about patient safety, and we
encourage employees to bring patient safety
issues to our attention. We strictly prohibit retal-
iation of any kind against individuals for report-
ing any complaint, Beirne said in a prepared
Raquipiso, a ve-year employee, said
between mid-2009 and December 2010 she
complained of incidents including an Aug. 11,
2009 dispensing error involving high alert
medication and a Jan. 19, 2010 complaint that
a stroke patient had been improperly transferred
to her unit which was not equipped to provide
that type of care. In September 2010, Raquipiso
complained that certain patients could not be
admitted because doing so violated the ve-to-
one ratio of patients to nurses, the suit claims.
Raquipisos 2009 performance evaluation
was scheduled the day of the complaint about
the stroke patient and she was not given written
copy of it until April, the suit states. At that
meeting, she was given a notice of nal warning
and placed on a performance improvement plan
that September. On Dec. 17, 2010, Raquipiso
was terminated for failure to meet the required
performance improvement expectations.
A case management conference is scheduled
for May. Raquipisos attorney did not return a
The suit was led the same week nurses at 21
Kaiser Permanente hospitals, including two in
San Mateo County, planned an informational
picket over what they say is persistently inade-
quate stafng in emergency care which leads to
patients being turned away. The afternoon pick-
et planned for today includes the South San
Francisco and Redwood City medical centers.
Beirne said the claims have little to do with
facts and are a disservice to the outstanding
work of its staff, doctors and nurses.
Care home worker jailed
for stealing from residents
An 18-year-old food service worker who
stole more than $400 worth of jewelry from a
resident at a Redwood City assisted living
home and was accused of several other thefts
was sentenced yesterday to nine months in jail
and ordered to repay several victims.
Luis Hermelindo Cebrero, of unincorporat-
ed San Mateo County, pleaded no contest to
felony residential burglary and a misdemeanor
count of theft from an elder person in return
for a promise of no more
than a year in jail. On
Tuesday, he received a
lesser amount with credit
of 144 days earned while
in custody on $100,000
bail and ordered to repay
more than $2,000.
Cebrero had worked at
the Woodside Terrace
Senior Living Complex
for six months, during
which time prosecutors say he had admitted
committing at least six previously unsolved
thefts. On Oct. 8, another employee reported
nding approximately $425 worth of jewelry
hidden in a food tray Cebrero had removed
from a room.
Police reported nding several items of jew-
elry stolen from other facility residents inside
Cebreros apartment and he allegedly admit-
ted taking the goods and committing ve other
thefts prior to his 18th birthday in September.

A San Bruno man accused of tor-
turing his live-in girlfriend in April
with punches, pliers and threats to
bury her in the yard because she
had an affair with a coworker was
sentenced yesterday to seven years
in prison.
Richard David Northey, 30, was
also ordered to stay away from the
victim for 10 years.
The sentence, which was deter-
mined by a plea deal reached in
September, speaks to the serious-
ness of the case, said Chief Deputy
District Attorney Karen Guidotti.
Northey agreed to plead no con-
test to two counts of felony domes-
tic violence and admit inflicting
great bodily
injury on the
woman during
the repeated
attacks April 5
to avoid a jury
trial on charges,
including tor-
ture which could
have imprisoned
him for life.
San Bruno
police arrested Northey after his
girlfriend of six years told them
while hospitalized that for 11 hours
he tortured and beat her repeatedly
because she cheated. The woman
said he also threatened several
times to kill her and bury her in two
trash bags in the yard. He also
allegedly threatened to kill her
family if she cheated again and
painfully squeezed one of her fin-
gers with a pair of pliers. He threat-
ened to pull off her fingernails,
swung her by her hair and slammed
her head into a wall and held a cig-
arette to her eyes while threatening
to burn them, according to prosecu-
The following afternoon, the
woman told Northey she had to go
to work as an excuse to flee.
Northey has credit of 293 days
against his term and must also pay
restitution to be determined at a
later hearing.

Eight hospitalized
after pesticide exposure
Eight people were taken to hospi-
tals Monday night after being
exposed to a pesticide at a San
Mateo County trailer park, a battal-
ion chief said.
The San Mateo County Sheriffs
Ofce and the Redwood City Fire
Department responded to Sequoia
Trailer Park in North Fair Oaks after
receiving a 911 call from someone
requesting medical aid at about 8:10
p.m., Redwood City re Battalion
Chief Daniel Abrams said.
Two residents who had apparently
been using a fogger to exterminate
eas were found inside their trailer
in a cloud of pesticide, Abrams said.
Those two residents and a neigh-
bor were washed off and taken to a
hospital to be treated for shortness
of breath and eye irritation, Abrams
Five emergency responders were
also taken to a hospital as a precau-
tion and were later released, he said.
A hazardous materials team
responded to the trailer park to mon-
itor the situation.
No evacuations were necessary,
though trailer park residents were
asked to shelter in place for about an
hour, Abrams said.

Arsonist takes plea deal
A disgruntled tenant accused of
torching the carpet of his rented
room in Mirimar with shots of
vodka because he was facing evic-
tion was sentenced to time served
and probation on one count of arson.
Lars Don Ehlers, 51, was also
ordered to register as an arsonist and
repay his former landlord $1,625.
Ehlers received the three-year pro-
bationary term plus 328 days in jail
with credit for the same amount
immediately after pleading no con-
test to the charge.
Prosecutors say Ehlers rented a
room in the 400 block of Alameda
Avenue but his attitude frightened
his landlady. Ehlers reportedly
responded to a three-day eviction
notice by sending threatening texts
like You kicked me out ... I can do
lots of things and, on July 6, set the
carpet in his room on re. After
deputies arrived
just before 11
p.m. that night
they reported
finding in his
room a scorched
patch of carpet,
burn marks on
an adjacent deck
and some lighter
uid. Ehlers ini-
tially claimed he
was just barbecuing but later
authorities gured out he had used
shots of vodka to ignite the carpet,
according to prosecutors.

SACRAMENTO The nations
largest teachers pension fund
announced Tuesday that it was
reviewing its rearms holdings after
determining that its investment in a
gun maker was linked to one of the
weapons used in last weeks
Connecticut school massacre.
The California State Teachers
Retirement System, which manages
$155 billion in assets, was review-
ing whether those investments com-
ply with the funds own social and
ethical standards.
The fund was found this week to
have invested $600 million in the
private equity rm Cerberus Capital
Management, which owns gun
maker Freedom Group
International. Cerberus announced
Tuesday it will sell its holdings in
the manufacturer of the military-
style rie used to kill 20 school-
children and six adults at Sandy
Hook Elementary School in
Newtown, Conn.
CalSTRS spokesman Michael
Sicilia also disclosed Tuesday that
the fund owns approximately $4
million in shares of Sturm, Ruger &
Co. and $1.7 million in shares of
Smith & Wesson Holding Corp., two
publicly traded gun manufacturers.
He said it will take days to com-
pile a list of all rearm holdings
because the massive fund has a
broad range of investments.
These are tragic and devastating
acts that took place at Sandy Hook
and they have prompted many in
this country to call for change and
were determining what we can do
differently to help ensure that this
unthinkable act never happens
again, Sicilia said.

NEWTOWN, Conn. Newtown
returned its students to their classrooms
Tuesday for the rst time since last
weeks massacre and faced the agoniz-
ing task of laying others to rest, as this
grieving town wrestled with the same
issues gripping the country: violence,
gun control and nding a way forward.
Funerals were held for two more of
the tiny fallen, a 6-year-old boy and a 6-
year-old girl. A total of 26 people were
gunned down at Sandy Hook
Elementary School in one of the worst
mass shootings in U.S history. The gun-
man also killed his mother in her home
before committing suicide.
The resumption of classes at all
Newtowns schools except Sandy Hook
brought a return of familiar routines,
something students seemed to welcome
as they arrived aboard buses festooned
with large green-and-white ribbons

each other and try and help each other

Still, he noted: Theres going to be no
joy in school. It really doesnt feel like
Christmas anymore.
At St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church
in Newtown, back-to-back funerals were
held for rst-graders James Mattioli and
Jessica Rekos, the third and fourth so far
and the rst of eight to be held in the
coming days at the church. Memorial
services and wakes were also held for
some of the adult victims.
As mourners gathered outside, a
motorcade led by police motorcycles
arrived for the funeral of little James,
who especially loved recess and math
and who was described by his family as
a numbers guy who couldnt wait until
he was old enough to order a foot-long
Subway sandwich.

WASHINGTON Congressional
gun rights supporters showed an
increased willingness Tuesday to con-
sider new legislation to control rearms
in the aftermath of the Connecticut
school shootings provided it also
addresses mental health issues and the
impact of violent video games.
A former co-chairman of the
Congressional Sportsmens Caucus,
Democratic Rep. Mike Thompson, D-
Calif., and 10-term House Republican
Jack Kingston a Georgia lawmaker
elected with strong National Rifle
Association backing were the latest to
join the call to consider gun control as
part of a comprehensive, anti-violence
effort next year.
Put guns on the table, also put video
games on the table, put mental health on
the table, Kingston said.
But he added that nothing should be
done immediately, saying, There is a
time for mourning and a time to sort it
out. I look forward to sorting it out and
getting past the grief stage.
With the nations nerves still raw over
the murders of 20 elementary school
children and six teachers, White House,
spokesman Jay Carney said President
Barack Obama was actively support-
ive of a plan by Sen. Dianne Feinstein,
D-Calif., to introduce legislation to rein-
state an assault weapons ban. While
Obama has long supported a ban, he
exerted little effort to get it passed dur-
ing his rst term.
Meanwhile, the National Rifle
Association, silent since the shootings,
said in a statement that it is prepared to
offer meaningful contributions to help
make sure this never happens again.
There was no indication what that might
entail. The group, the best-known
defender of gun rights in America,
scheduled a news conference for Friday.
On Capitol Hill, Feinstein is likely to
become chairman next year of the
Senate Judiciary Committee, which may
get the rst crack at considering rearms

WASHINGTON After four days of self-imposed
silence on the shooting that killed 26 people inside a

gun rights lobby emerged Tuesday and promised to offer
meaningful contributions to help make sure this never hap-
pens again.
The National Rie Association explained its unusual
absence out of respect for the families and as a matter of
common decency after Fridays shooting that left dead 20
children, all ages 6 or 7.
The group typically outspoken about its positions
even after shooting deaths went all but silent since the
rampage. As it faced public scrutiny online and in person,
the group left many wondering how if at all it would
respond to one of the most shocking slayings in the nations

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Foster City, as Lead Agency, has completed a Draft Subsequent
Environmental Impact Report (Subsequent EIR) for the Gilead Sciences Integrated Corporate Campus Master Plan (2012
Master Plan). The 2012 Master Plan would amend the Vintage Park General Development Plan, under which the 20 I
0 Corporate Campus Master Plan (20 I 0 Master Plan) was approved. The amendments would increase the amount of
building space and land area beyond that identied in the 2010 Master Plan. The 2010 Master Plan was examined in the
Gilead Sciences Corporate Campus Master Plan EIR, which was certied on February 16, 20 I O.
PUBLIC HEARING: The Planning Commission is schedu led to receive public comments on the Subsequent EIR on
January 17,2013, at 7:00 p.m. at roster City Council Chambers, located at 620 Foster City Boulevard.
PUBLIC REVIEW TlMELlNE: The public review period for the Subsequent EIR begins December 14,2012 and ends
January 28, 2013. The City must receive all written comments regarding the adequacy of the Subsequent ErR wit hin this
time period. Written comments may be submitted in person, by mail, bye-mail, or by fax. The mailing address is 610 roster

Drive to the east, Bridgepointe Shopping Center/Home Depot in San Mateo to the south, and Mariners Island Boulevard
in San Mateo to the west. Figure I depicts the location of the project site.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The proposed project would amend the 2010 Master Plan and the Vintage Park General
Development Plan to incorporate and develop an additional approximately 32 acres acquired from Electronics for Imaging
(EFI) adjacent to the 40-acre site comprising the 20 I 0 Master Plan. The 2012 Master Plan would redevelop a portion of
the approximately 73-acre project site, including demolition of up to 12 of the exi sting ofce and laboratory buildings,
and construction of up to 17 new build ings. Buildout of the 2012 Master Plan would result in a total of up to 22 ofce and
laboratory buildings (comprising approximately 2,500,600 square feet of interior space) and 6,050 parking sta ils on the
project site. Development envisioned under the proposed 2012 Master Plan would require an amendmcnt to the Vi ntage

a less-than-signicant level. With the implementation of the proposed mitigation measures, no signicant impacts would
resu!t with implementation of the proposed project, except for the following impacts:
The project would confict with General Plan noise policies
adopted to avoid or mitigate an environmental impact.
Project-related traffc would create a clearly noticeable
permanent change in the noise environment.
Operation of the project would result in a signifcant
project-level and cumulative net increase in criteria pollutant
emissions, resulting in a confict with the Bay Area Air
Quality Management District 2010 CleanAir Plan.
These impacts would remain signicant and unavoidable,
since the mitigation measures identied in the Subsequent
EIR would not reduce these impacts to a less-than-
signicant level. The project site is not listed on any of the
lists of hazardous materials sites enumerated under Section
65962.5 of the Government Code.

The Utility Reform Network and
Consumer Federation of
California, will hold a news confer-
ence to unveil legislation that would
prohibit the California Public
Utilities Commission from continuing its practice under
President Michael Peevey of awarding non-competitive
grants to agencies such as the Lawrence Livermore
National Laboratory. The press conference is 10 a.m.,
today, 505 Van Ness Ave., San Francisco.
On Tuesday, state Sen. Leland Yee, D-San
Francisco/San Mateo, introduced a bill intended to close
major loopholes in Californias assault weapon ban and
announced two other gun control measures he plans to intro-
duce this session.
Senate Bill 47 is modeled after a bill he introduced last
year but that was held by the Assembly. The bill prohibited
semi-automatic weapons like AR-15s and AK-47s from hav-
ing devices known as bullet buttons and mag magnets,
which allow the gun to be easily reloaded with multiple
rounds of ammunition. SB 47 will also prohibit add-on kits
that allow high-capacity magazines, according to Yees ofce.
Yee also announced that he plans to introduce legislation
that will require yearly registration and background checks
for gun ownership and another bill that will toughen safety
requirements. His legislation will require that all guns have a
locked trigger and be properly stored in a lock box when not
in use, according to Yees ofce.
The Foster City Council voted 5-0 Monday night to
approve a ban on reusable plastic bags based on a county-
wide ordinance. A second reading of the amendment changes
will be held Jan. 7 and the new ordinance will go into effect
on Earth Day, April 22, 2013. The council also approved a
new garbage rate structure with Recology at Mondays meet-
ing that will see no increase to garbage rates for Foster City
residents in 2013.
Cliff talks hit a lull with Boehners Plan B
Unions plan new offensive after Michigan loss
WASHINGTON Blindsided by a new law weakening
union rights in Michigan, organized labor is preparing to tar-
get Republican governors in politically important states up for
re-election in 2014 part of a renewed offensive against per-
ceived anti-union policies.
While unions fared reasonably well nationally last month at
the ballot box, their struggle to survive has forced them to
spend staggering sums just trying to hold ground. It is money
not spent on recruiting new workers to stem a membership
decline that has made unions more vulnerable than ever.

WASHINGTON Just two weeks
from an economy-threatening deadline,
scal cliff talks hit a lull Tuesday as
House Speaker John Boehner announced
that Republicans would also march
ahead with their own tax plan on a sepa-
rate track from the one hes been pursu-
ing with President Barack Obama.
The White House and leading congres-
sional Democrats immediately rejected
Boehners Plan B, which would extend
soon-to-expire Bush-era tax cuts for
everyone making less than $1 million but
would not address huge across-the-board
spending cuts that are set to strike the
Pentagon and domestic programs next
Everyone should

Boehners proposal
will not pass the
Senate, said Senate
Majority Leader
Harry Reid, D-Nev.
Boehners surprise
move came after sig-
nificant progress
over the past several
days in talks with
Obama talks that produced movement
on tax rate hikes that have proven deeply
unsettling to GOP conservatives and on
cuts to Social Security benets that have
incensed liberal Democrats.
Just Monday, Obama offered conces-
sions, including a plan to raise top tax
rates on households earning more than
$400,000 instead of the $250,000 thresh-
old he had campaigned on. And the two
sides had inched closer on the total
amount of tax revenue required to seal
the agreement. Obama now would settle
for $1.2 trillion over the coming decade
while Boehner is offering $1 trillion.
By contrast, protecting income below
$1 million from a hike in the top tax rate
from 35 percent to 39.6 percent would
raise only $269 billion over the coming
But the outlines of a possible Obama-
Boehner agreement appeared to have
shaky support at best from Boehners
leadership team and outright opposition
from key Republicans like vice presiden-
tial nominee Paul Ryan, R-Wis., a House
GOP aide said. That aide spoke only on
condition of anonymity because the aide
was not authorized to discuss the situa-
tion publicly.

Healing hearts
Is it mental dysfunction, the alarming
presence of assault weapons, a toxic
popular culture or the simple fact that
some people have lost hope for a better
future, that has led to the national
nightmare that played out last Friday in
Newtown, Conn.?
Lost in all the agony and soul search-
ing, however, is the single most impor-
tant tenet of all our faiths: that a loving
God is always with us, particularly in
those hours when our hearts are broken
and we struggle to understand.

7-Eleven protest
I am writing concerning Mr.
Silverfarbs article in the Dec. 18 edi-
tion of the Daily Journal about the con-
troversy surrounding the recent opening
of the 7-Eleven on North San Mateo
Whether permits should or should
not have been granted is really a moot
point, as the establishment is now in
operation. While I am sympathetic
toward the neighbors who might feel
that they will be negatively impacted
by this store, the issue is the nancial
liabilities to the city of San Mateo if a
closure order is issued. I believe that I
read in an earlier article that the cost to
the city could run as high as $8.6 mil-
lion, excluding attorneys fees.
This potential exorbitant payout to
benet a few concerned residents is, in
my opinion, a waste of our tax dollars.
There are other solutions available
rather than simply closing the business
or allowing the 7-Eleven to operate
without restrictions. Increased police
presence would be the rst thing that
comes to mind. However, barring that,
what about the possibility of requiring
the operators of the 7-Eleven to provide
private security during evening and
weekend hours? There is currently a
market at 16th Avenue and South
Claremont Street that employs a private
security guard, so it is not unheard of
in San Mateo.

I consider myself a senior member

1996. Although I am very proud of my
heritage, being a second-generation
Filipino-American, I am not offended
at all that I was not named in your list
of my elected colleagues. It has always

heritage not be part of my political

be looked upon as capable and dedicat-

Shooting tragedy
In all the 55-plus years Ive been in
this country, this is the most horrible
With all the talk and noise ying
back and forth about which weapons
should or should not be available and
to whom, I think there should be a total
ban on all guns! Whether its a pistol or
a rie, theyre all killing machines and
they should not be available to any reg-
ular Joe. Theyre only used where they
are needed: the cops and the military.
It will take a lot of time and effort to
enforce this, but it can be done. People
in Europe are shaking their heads in
disbelief when they read and hear about
shootings that happen on a daily basis
in the streets of this country. We dont
live in the jungle, we live in a civilized
society and nobody needs a gun.
Madelon Deys
Letters to the editor
he tragedy at Sandy Hook
Elementary School in
Newtown, Conn. was an
unthinkable crime. As the details
revealed themselves Friday, it only got
worse and worse. At its end, the death
count, particularly that of young chil-
dren, was beyond comprehension. For
parents, it is a nightmare scenario.
Still, it is in our nature to try to make
sense of it and do something. One path
is to immediately call for gun control
since the crimes were committed with a
gun. That is but one solution as there is
more to it than access to guns and the
weapons themselves.
This week, U.S. Sen. Dianne
Feinstein announced she will reintro-
duce legislation to stop the sale, trans-
fer, importation and manufacturing of
assault weapons as well as large ammu-
nition magazines, strips and drums that
hold more than 10 rounds. These are
not common weapons for the average
gun owner and there would be an
exemption for weapons already legally
possessed as well as 900 types of
weapons used for target shooting and
hunting. This is an issue that has been
bubbling for some time, and it is well
worth a national conversation about
rules for gun ownership while still
adhering to the Second Amendment.
But to say the fault lies solely with
guns is not seeing the entire picture.
There are countless theories as to
why this troubled young man decided
upon this despicable act. It could be
mental health issues, it could be violent
video games, it could be his upbring-
ing, it could be sensationalized and
glamorized violence in our media or it
could be the media itself that provides
notoriety for those who commit these
heinous crimes. All, however, is conjec-
ture. The truth of the matter is that no
one, no one, knows what caused this to
happen. So while we look for some-
thing to blame, the blame itself should
go solely to the person who committed
the crime.
That doesnt make it any easier to
comprehend, but lets try to focus our
energy in a positive way. While the
chances of such a crime happening at
your childs school are slim, the possi-
bility is always there though it would
be unthinkable before Friday. With this
new reality that includes this nightmare
scenario, it is important to not overreact
but not underreact either. To school
districts with emergency protocol in
place, it is worth revisiting them to
ensure they include every possible situ-
ation even with the knowledge that
even schools with doors that lock from
the inside are not fail-safe.
Aside from the details of emergency
plans, it is also key for us as a collec-
tive society to look out for one another.
If something doesnt look right, say
something. If someone seems troubled,
talk to them. Every person has value,
do not shun those who are different
than you.
Human history is lled with tragedy
rational thought and civic responsi-
bility has always helped us through
those difcult times.
Fear and anger are natural reactions
but they wont help us come to terms
with what was before unthinkable.
Focus on the heroic acts that saved it
from being even worse. Take solace in
our nations support of those who
grieve. And dont allow anger to direct
your own thoughts.
Making sense of tragedy
ust as we let go of dead philosophies, illusions
and old science to confront reality, so a country
must keep challenging its traditions if it is to be
transformed if it wants renewal. Marilyn Ferguson,
The Aquarian Conspiracy.
Back in November 2001, I
wrote a column wondering if
it was possible that anything
positive could have resulted
from the 9/11 catastrophe. I
thought that maybe we, in
this country, had become a
little more civil, a bit more
generous of heart, somewhat
more involved with each
other, a little more aware of
worthwhile priorities all
important qualities of a civi-
lized society from which we
had strayed over the past
I wondered if it was possible that maybe more of us were
starting to think about the answers to some important ques-
tions. For instance, was the best advice from the president
after such a tragedy to go out and shop? Is it good for
democracy for so many of us to wallow in luxury while
many in our country are hungry and homeless? Could it be
possible that we may become less partisan more aware of
the fact that were all in this together? Dream on!
Just imagine if instead of aspiring to impressive houses
and luxury cars and indulging ourselves in anything we
desire, that more of us would cut back on Christmas spend-
ing for those who have everything and contribute to helping
those in need.
Imagine that instead of allowing corporate executives to
accumulate huge bonuses and salaries at the expense of
employees and our economy that we would demand that all
of those who work full time earn a living wage and have
decent benets.
Imagine if instead of screaming socialism every time a
program is conceived that will help the needy (and increase
taxes on the wealthy), such self-righteous and arrogant peo-
ple would develop a little compassion and empathy.
Imagine if wed all use our grief over tragedies like the
one at Newtown, Conn. to good advantage by working with
others to nd ways to prevent such insane slaughter.
Imagine if instead of looking to extremely arrogant, ego-
centric and overpaid celebrities as heroes, more of us would
emulate some truly mindful people who contribute some-
thing of real value to the world.
Imagine if instead of ravaging the earth and the environ-
ment without thought to the future so that we can indulge
ourselves with our luxuries, that more of us would resolve to
live lightly on the earth.
Imagine that if instead of some people being so obsessed
with their religious dogma and catechistic beliefs that they
are willing to destroy others, they would connect with reali-
Imagine that instead of being so securely tethered to our
electronic gadgets, we were to contribute some of the related
time to education, community activism and volunteer work.
Imagine if those Tea Party members and other adamant
Republicans with serious scrooge complexes were revealed
for what they really are. Maybe they would grow up and take
responsibility for their part in our multi-trillion national debt
instead of acting like they are victims of the Democrats
Imagine that the legislators who are bound and determined
to prevent any increase in taxes on the wealthy (not even
allowing Ws tax cuts on those earning more than $250,000
to expire) would absorb a bit of the Christmas spirit and see
the importance of sharing some of their wealth to fund pro-
grams that would improve things for all Americans.
Imagine a Christmas when the United States is not
involved in a war and/or threatened war and there is peace
on Earth.
If there was a coming together for a while in the fall of
2001, we, as a nation, certainly wasted no time in reverting
to our self-centered, exploitative ways. Now, 11 years later,
we nd ourselves even more estranged from each other,
more intolerant, more divided on important issues. In 2012,
when things have become even more difcult for those who
have lost their jobs (or been downsized) and their homes
because of the present recession (and greedy and unscrupu-
lous loan institutions), and we face many uncertainties about
the future, wouldnt it be great if in 2013 we were to resolve
to imagine how we can contribute to helping this country
truly exemplify liberty and justice for all?
Imagine theres no countries. It isnt hard to do. Nothing

NEW YORK Stocks climbed on
Wall Street Tuesday, pushing the
Standard and Poors 500 to its highest
level in two months, on optimism that
lawmakers are closing in on a budget
deal that will stop the U.S. from going
over the scal cliff at the beginning of
next year.
The Dow Jones industrial average rose
115.57 points to 13,350.96, its biggest
one-day gain in almost a month. The
Standard & Poors 500 rose 16.43 points
to 1,446.79, its highest close since Oct.
18. The Nasdaq composite rose 43.93
points to 3,054.53.
House Speaker John Boehner told
reporters he remains hopeful that a scal
cliff compromise can be reached, but
says President Barack Obama has yet to
offer a balanced deficit-cutting plan.
Boehner said Obamas latest offer for
$1.3 trillion in tax increases over the
next decade with $850 billion in spend-
ing cuts is not enough. The White House
says that President Obama has moved
halfway to meet Boehner on a budget
People are cheering the prospect for
some compromise in Washington right
now, said Joe Costigan, director of
equity research at Bryn Mawr Trust Co.
At the moment there is some pretty
good news and the market is reacting
favorably to it, but the deal isnt done
Stocks slumped after the presidential
election Nov. 6 on concern that a divid-
ed government would struggle to reach
an agreement before Jan. 1, when a
series of series of tax increases and gov-
ernment spending cuts are scheduled to
take effect if no deal is reached. Those
measures could push the U.S. back into
recession. The S&P 500 has since
recouped all of those losses.
Some investors say stocks are already
pricing in too much optimism. Any deal,
while ensuring that the economy avoids
the full impact of the scal cliff, will
still involve higher taxes and less gov-
ernment spending. That will be a drag on
economic growth, said David Wright, a
managing director and co-founder at
Sierra Investment Management in Santa
Monica, Calif.
There are just too many naive people
thinking that the agreement itself is a
signicant event it isnt, Wright said.
The implementation is going to be neg-
ative for the economy.
Stocks added to their gains after the
Standard & Poors rating agency said at
midday that it had raised Greeces credit
grade by six notches to B-, lifting the
country out of default.

popular mobile photo-sharing service
now owned by Facebook, said Tuesday
that it will remove language from its new
terms of service suggesting that users
photos could appear in advertisements.
The language in question had
appeared in updated policies

take effect Jan. 16. After an outcry on
social media and privacy rights blogs,
the company clarified that it has no
plans to put users photos in ads.
That said, Instagram maintains that it

would like to experiment with various
forms of advertisements to make money.

Oracle 2Q earnings rise 18
percent to top Street view
By Michael Liedtke
SAN FRANCISCO Snapping out of a summertime lull,
Oracles latest quarter demonstrated that companies have been
splurging on software and other technology as the year comes
to a close, despite uncertainty about the economys prospects.
The results announced Tuesday are an improvement from
Oracles previous quarter, when the business-software makers
revenue dipped slightly from a year earlier.
The most recent quarter spanned September through
November. That makes Oracle the rst technology bellwether
to provide insights into corporate spending since the Nov. 6 re-
election of President Barack Obama. Its also the rst to report
since negotiations to avoid the so-called scal cliff began to
heat up in Washington.
The solid performance by one of the worlds biggest tech-
nology suppliers suggests corporate decision makers arent
fretting too much about the economy falling off the cliff. The
scal cliff refers to the combination of wide-ranging increases
in taxes and cuts in government spending that will be auto-
matically triggered Jan. 1 unless the White House and
Congress can reach an agreement on how to soften the impact.
Taiwanese exec guilty of LCD screen price fixing
SAN FRANCISCO A federal jury in San Francisco has
convicted a former executive at a Taiwanese company of par-
ticipating in a global LCD screen price-xing conspiracy.
The U.S. Department of Justice says Shiu Lung Leung could
face up to 10 years in prison and a $1 million ne for his role
in illegally xing computer screen prices in the U.S.
Leung was a senior manager for AU Optronics Corp.
His company, its American subsidiary and two colleagues
were convicted of price xing in March but the charges against
Leung resulted in a mistrial.

A lot of the names are the same, but the
results so far have been different.
The Burlingame girls basketball, after
struggling the last three years, appear to be on
the right track under new coach Bill Lepeltak
as the Panthers have jumped out to an 8-0 start
so far this season and theyre doing it with
seven returners from last years 10-16 team.
Lepeltak, however, is not ready to start
clearing space in the Burlingame trophy case
just yet.
Creative scheduling, is how Lepeltak
explained his teams hot start. We havent
played the strongest schedule.
But given the climate around the team last
season, the Panthers appear to be invigorated
by Lepeltak and the quick start to the 2012-13
season. Last year, rumors swirled of dissen-
sion among the team, parents and the coach,
but the Panther appear to have put that behind
them this year.
The kids are actually having fun playing
basketball. I dont know why they didnt have
much fun (the last few years), Lepeltak said.
Im a little different. We scrimmage full
court every day at practice. Our practices are
pretty fun. I think a lot of coaches break
things down so much, they kind of make prac-
tice not fun. Im a teach-by-doing kind of guy.
We play ball.

Adding a third may be a ways off
but the Panthers took a step in the
right direction with a 2-0 win over

Its a very big win, said
Burlingame coach Philip De Rosa.
Theyre an A level team. All these
(non-league) wins are very impor-
tant. I told the girls if we can get
this win, and get a couple more wins

Watching the Mustangs knock the
ball around with precision and con-
dence proved them to be a quality
side. But while Pioneer did a good
job of building up its attack through
the midfield, the Burlingame
defense made sure that was the only
place the Mustangs would be dan-
gerous, as the Panthers back line
stood tall and solid, giving up only a
couple of legitimate scoring
chances. Sweeper Greer Chrisman
the last line of defense roamed
sideline to sideline, clearing any
potential trouble.
With the Burlingame defense
locking down the Mustangs, the
only question was whether or not the
Panthers had the skill to nish on
offense. After a scoreless rst half
and a near-miss on the part of the
Mustangs Burlingame found the
answer to that question, nding the
back of the net twice, both in the
second half.

made offensively was to push the

SANTA CLARA Linebacker Aldon
Smith loves playing in prime time. It takes
him back to how he spent so many Friday
nights in high school under the lights.
San Francisco teammates Anthony Dixon,
Joe Staley and others become similarly nos-
talgic when they take the eld these days with
the football spotlight on them.
Under the lights, you knew it was show-
time, Smith said. Its just that feeling you
get again from being under that spotlight.
Aside from the good vibes and youthful
memories, the 49ers (10-3-1) sure seem to
thrive on the NFLs big stage. They are 5-0
this season in prime time, with another
Sunday night game coming up at Seattle and a
chance to clinch a second consecutive NFC
West crown.
Those Friday night lights, when Im feel-
ing like that, I feel like the other team is in
trouble, Dixon said Tuesday. Back in those
high school days, most of us, we were unstop-
pable. I love that feeling. I do get that feeling
sometimes when I go back out there and its
one of those games. You try to get that feeling,
those Friday night days you were (dominat-
ing). You were at the top of your game. It feels
good to feel like that.
San Francisco wants to keep its own good
feeling going right into January.
For running back Frank Gore, Sunday
nights surprising 41-34 victory at New
England was a big step toward what he hopes
is another special postseason run with one
more game, that is: the Super Bowl. San
Francisco lost in overtime of last Januarys
NFC title game to the reigning Super Bowl
champion New York Giants.
We know that we had to get a win going
against a great team in New England, Gore
said. We let everybody know what type of
team we are. We came out, we started out fast
as a team and got the big win.

OAKLAND Oakland Athletics general
manager Billy Beane hopes he got another
significant addition from the international
The As nalized a $6.5 million, two-year
contract with Japanese shortstop Hiroyuki
Nakajima on Tuesday, lling a void created by
the departures of Cliff Pennington and
Stephen Drew.
This marks the second straight offseason
that Beane has added a prominent internation-
al player, with the team
having signed Cuban
defector Yoenis Cespedes
to a $36 million, four-year
deal last winter.
If Nakajima can have
anywhere the success that
Cespedes had as a rookie,
the As would be ecstatic.
Cespedes was major part
of the teams surprising
season, batting .292 with
23 homers and 82 RBIs to
help lead Oakland to the AL West title and
rst playoff appearance since 2006.
The As achieved that despite having the
lowest payroll in baseball at $59.5 million and
they didnt need to break the bank to sign
Nakajima. The contract also includes a $5.5
million club option for 2015, but Oaklands
top draft pick last year, high school shortstop
Addison Russell, could be ready for the
majors by then.
Nakajima, 30, is an eight-time All-Star in
Japan and a three-time Gold Glove winner. He
has a .302 career batting average with 162
homers in 11 seasons with the Pacific
Leagues Seibu Lions. He has hit 20 or more
homers in a season four times. He batted .311
with 29 doubles, 13 homers and 74 RBIs in
136 games for the Lions last season, earning
All-Star, Gold Glove and Best Nine recog-

OAKLAND David Lee had 26 points
and nine rebounds, Klay Thompson nished
with 19 points and the Golden State Warriors
brought their surprising road run home with a
103-96 victory over the struggling New
Orleans Hornets on Tuesday night.
After going 6-1 on the seasons longest road
stretch, the Warriors built a 14-point lead in
the second quarter and held off the Hornets
late. Golden State (17-8) is off to its best start
since the 1991-92 season, when the team
began 21-8.
Ryan Anderson scored 28 points off the
bench and Anthony Davis had 15 points and
16 rebounds in his rst start in a month for the
Hornets, who lost their eighth straight and are
the worst team in the Western Conference
with a 5-19 record.
Carl Landry and Jarrett Jack each scored 16
points to help Golden State hold off their for-
mer team, with each making a pair of free
throws in the nal minutes. New Orleans sent
Jack to Golden State as part of a three-team
deal with Philadelphia, while Laundry signed
a free-agent deal with the Warriors.
The Warriors hadnt played at Oracle Arena
since Dec. 3. The Hornets almost erased all
the good vibes with a frantic fourth quarter
Davis caught a half-court pass from Greivis
Vasquez and converted a layup over Landry
for a three-point play that capped a 14-4
Hornets run to tie tied the game at 92-all.
Landry answered with two free throws,
Stephen Curry made a pull-up jumper and
Jack added another pair from the line to put
the Warriors ahead 98-92 with 1:24 remain-
The Warriors extended the momentum from
their East Coast trip which included a win
at defending champion Miami and added
some style points, too.
Currys left-handed pass off the dribble split
two defenders en route to Festus Ezeli, who
tapped the ball to David Lee for a dunk. And
on the last play of the rst quarter, Charles
Jenkins brought the home fans roaring to their
feet with a buzzer-beating baseline jumper.
Landry kept the surge going in the second
quarter when he started a three-point play
with a reverse layup over Roger Mason. He
exed his biceps in celebration and made the
free to give Golden State a 38-24 lead.
Hornets coach Monty Williams had restruc-
tured his starting lineup in hopes of shaking
the losing streak. Anderson came off the
bench and Robin Lopez moved from center to
power forward to make room for Davis.
Davis, the top pick in Junes draft, started
for the rst time since Nov. 17 at Milwaukee.
He had come off the bench the previous four
games after sitting out 11 games with a left
ankle injury.

RALEIGH, N.C. Lorenzo Brown scored
18 of his season-high 24 points after halftime
to help No. 25 North Carolina State pull away
to beat Stanford 88-79 on Tuesday night.
Scott Wood scored 15 of his 17 in the rst
half for the Wolfpack (8-2), who earned a
fourth straight win with another high-scoring
performance at home. It also allowed N.C.
State to avenge a road loss last year in which
the Wolfpack blew a 12-point lead in the sec-
ond half.
Richard Howell nished with 17 points and
12 rebounds for the Wolfpack for his fourth
straight double-double.
Dwight Powell continued his recent strong
play for the Cardinal (7-4), scoring 23 points
for his fourth 20-point performance in ve
games. But Stanford gave up its highest point
total of the season.
N.C. State, which came in leading the coun-
try by shooting nearly 53 percent, nished this
one at 56 percent.
It was also another strong offensive showing
at home for the Wolfpack, who came in aver-
aging almost 86 points at the PNC Arena.
N.C. State is in the middle of a six-game
homestand that will keep it in Raleigh until
opening Atlantic Coast Conference play at
Boston College on Jan. 5.
N.C. State led by just ve at the half and 50-
42 with about 16 minutes left before Brown
got rolling. With the junior point guard attack-
ing the paint more aggressively, the Wolfpack
scored on six straight and eight of nine pos-
sessions to nally build a cushion.
Brown started the urry with a score in the
lane then added another oater in the lane.
Minutes later, he penetrated to nd a cutting
Howell for a dunk, then scored again in the
lane while drawing a foul for a three-point
play that pushed N.C. States lead to 67-50
with 10:32 left.
Stanford got as close as seven with about 5
1/2 minutes left, but Howell answered by
muscling his way through the paint for a bas-
ket then C.J. Leslie followed with a jumper to
push the margin back to double gures.
Brown also came through with a driving
basket and a pair of free throws in the nal
minute that kept N.C. State in control.
Wood had struggled the past two games,
going just 2 for 10 from the eld and 1 for 7
from behind the arc for eight points. But he
broke out of that with ve 3-pointers in the
rst half, including a run of three straight that
pushed N.C. State to a 29-20 lead with about
9 minutes left.
Stanford never led.
This was the Cardinals rst true road game
of the season. Stanford had played six home
games, one against San Francisco in its home
state and three games in the Battle 4 Atlantis
in the Bahamas.

SAN FRANCISCO Right-handed reliev-
er Santiago Casilla completed a $15 million,
three-year contract with the World Series
champion San Francisco Giants on Tuesday.
The deal includes a club/vesting option for
the 2016 season. Casilla passed his physical to
nalize his new contract, Giants vice president
of baseball operations Bobby Evans said.
The 32-year-old Casilla went 7-6 with a 2.84
ERA and 25 saves last season, initially assum-
ing the closer role after 2010 saves leader Brian
Wilson was lost in April to a second Tommy
John reconstructive elbow surgery. He made 73
appearances and pitched 63 1-3 innings.
Glad to know we have Santiago for at least
three more years, manager Bruce Bochy said.
Hes been an integral part of our bullpen the
last three years, so its great to have him tied up
for the next three years.
Casilla is set to earn $4.5 million in 2013 and
14 and $5 million in 2015. He would receive a
$1 million buyout if his option doesnt vest. He
was eligible for arbitration this winter and
could have become a free agent next offseason.
Giants general manager Brian Sabean was
committed to keeping his championship team
intact as much as possible and, so far, he has
been able to do so with much of the core group.
Left-hander Jeremy Affeldt signed an $18
million, three-year deal in November, then cen-
ter elder Angel Pagan and second baseman
Marco Scutaro reached multiyear contracts
during this months winter meetings in
Nashville Pagan for $40 million over four
years and Scutaro for $20 million over three
In addition, San Francisco brought back
Andres Torres on a one-year deal last week to
play left eld. He was a key member of the
2010 World Series winners here.
The Giants declined to tender Wilson a con-
tract late last month, making him a free agent.
Bochy has said Sergio Romo will be his closer
heading into 2013.
Romo is thrilled to see so many familiar
faces returning.
I thought it was real huge we signed those
guys back, Romo said. What a role they
played in our ride last year, our adventure as a
group last year. Having (Pagan and Scutaro)
back, those are the top two guys in our lineup.
Weve got the top of our order back.
Casillas new deal was negotiated by agents
Sam and Seth Levinson, who also represent
2012 All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera. The
former Giants outelder was suspended for 50
games in August for a positive testosterone test
and left off San Franciscos postseason roster
once eligible to return.
Cabrera received a $16 million, two-year
contract from the Toronto Blue Jays last

Johnny Manziel ran for almost
1,700 yards and 30 touchdowns as a
dual-threat quarterback his senior
year of high school at Kerrville Tivy.
Who would have thought hed be
even more impressive at Texas
A&M when pitted against the
defenses of the Southeastern
On Tuesday, Manziel picked up
another major award for his spectac-
ular debut season. He was voted the
Associated Press Player of the Year.
As with the Heisman Trophy and
Davey OBrien Award that Manziel
already won, the QB nicknamed
Johnny Football is the rst freshman
to collect the AP award.
Manziels 31
votes were more
than twice that
of second place
finisher Manti
Teo, Notre
Dames start
linebacker. He is
the third straight
Hei sman-wi n-
ning quarterback
to receive the honor, following
Robert Grifn III and Cam Newton.
Manziel erased initial doubts
about his ability when he ran for 60
yards and a score in his rst game
against Florida.
I knew I could run the ball, I did
it a lot in high school, Manziel said
in an interview with the AP. It is
just something that you dont get a
chance to see in the spring.
Quarterbacks arent live in the
spring. You dont get to tackle. You
dont get to evade some of the sacks
that you would in normal game situ-
ations. So I feel like when I was able
to avoid getting tackled, it opened
some peoples eyes a little bit more.
The 6-foot-1 Manziel threw for
3,419 yards and 24 touchdowns and
ran for 1,181 yards and 19 more
scores to help the Aggies win 10
games for the rst time since 1998
and in their inaugural SEC year,
Ryan Tannehill, Manziels prede-
cessor now with the Dolphins after
being drafted eighth overall this sea-
son, saw promise from the young
quarterback last year when he was
redshirted. But even he is surprised
at how quickly things came togeth-
er for Manziel.
Its pretty wild. I always
thought he had that playmaking
ability, that something special
where if somebody came free, he
can make something exciting hap-
pen, Tannehill said. I wasnt real-
ly sure if, I dont think anyone was
sure if he was going to be able to
carry that throughout an SEC sea-
son, and hes shocked the world
and he did it.
After Manziel sat out as a redshirt
in 2011, Texas A&Ms scheduled
season-opener against Louisiana
Tech this year was postponed
because of Hurricane Isaac. That
left him to get his rst taste of live
defense in almost two years against
He responded well, helping the
Aggies race to a 17-7 lead early
using both his arm and his feet. The
Gators shut down Manziel and
A&Ms offense in the second half
and Texas A&M lost 20-17.
But Manziels performance was
enough for Texas A&Ms coaching
staff to realize that his scrambling
ability was going to be a big part of
what the Aggies could do this sea-
The rst half really showed that
I was a little bit more mobile than
we had seen throughout the spring,
Manziel said. Me and (then-offen-
sive coordinator) Kliff Kingsbury sat
down and really said: Hey we can
do some things with my feet as well
as throwing the ball. And it added a
little bit of a new dimension.

The top of the Big 12 looks familiar,
with Kansas in rst place and ranked in
the top 10.
The rest of the league doesnt appear
to be nearly as deep as usual this sea-
son, its rst with West Virginia and
TCU instead of Missouri and Texas
No. 24 Oklahoma State (8-1) is the
only other league team to join the
ninth-ranked Jayhawks (8-1) in the Top
25 and nobody else received a single
vote for Mondays poll.
This wasnt entirely unexpected, of
course. Missouri won the conference
tournament before bolting for the SEC
and its currently ranked 12th. But
beyond the Cowboys, nobody has
emerged as a serious threat to the
Jayhawks with non-conference play
winding down.
Big 12 teams are just 2-10 against
opponents ranked in the Top 25 and the
league is seventh in overall RPI
behind the Atlantic-10 and the
Mountain West. The inconsistent play
of Baylor and Texas has a lot to do with
The Bears (7-3) were picked to nish
second in the preseason poll, while the

big a resume builder as a team could
ask for. The Bears knocked off
Kentucky in Rupp Arena on Dec. 1, 62-
55, snapping the Wildcats 55-game
home winning streak. But Kentucky
later fell out of the Top 25and Baylor
lost at home to Northwestern.
The Bears have already lost to
Charleston in Waco. But theyve got a
chance to pick up a pair of quality wins
before meeting Texas in the league
opener on Jan. 5. Baylor hosts BYU
and plays at Gonzaga on Dec. 28.
Baylor coach Scott Drew said he saw
positive signs after his team led by just
two at halftime before rallying to beat
USC-Upstate, 73-57.
Early in the year I think that you are
always adjusting, changing and tweak-
ing, Drew said. Im so pleased with
this effort though because we were able
to defend and still take care of the ball
and win. I thought that we made some
extra effort passes. We made a more
conscious effort to get the ball inside.
Were learning how to get more touch-
es inside.
Texas is scufing in part because of a
challenging schedule and the absence
of point guard Myck Kabongo (NCAA
eligibility investigation) and forward
Jaylen Boyd (left foot injury).
If the Longhorns want to turn their
season around, this would a good week
to get started.
Texas, which doesnt have an upper-
classman in its starting lineup, hosts
No. 23 North Carolina on Wednesday
and plays at No. 20 Michigan State on
Saturday. A pair of wins would be a
massive boost for a team that has lost to
Division II Chaminade and by 23
points to No. 15 Georgetown.
Youve just got to go into it with a
mindset of getting better every day.
Build on the positive. And thats what
weve been trying to do as a young
group, Texas freshman guard Javan
Felix said.
Of course, not everyone in the Big 12
is off to a slow start.
Kansas brought a seven-game win-
ning streak into this week. Oklahoma
State has already beaten Tennessee and
North Carolina State behind freshman
point guard Marcus Smart, who is aver-
aging 13 points, seven rebounds and
5.2 assists a game and is on the short list
of the games top freshmen.
New coach Bruce Weber got Kansas
State off to a respectable 7-2 start, and
Oklahoma beat old foe Texas A&M
64-54 on Saturday to move to 7-2.
Iowa State (8-3), which was picked
to nish eighth in the league, has lost to
three quality opponents; Cincinnati,
UNLV and Iowa.

the Panthers started doing that, they dominat-
ed most of the second half.
What we were doing (in the rst half) was
play to Pioneers strength which is straight
up the middle. We kept trying to play up the
middle, De Rosa said. You have to go to the
outside. Once we did that, thats when the
chances came.
Pioneers best chance at a goal came about
eight minutes into the second half when a shot
from 25 yards out beat goalkeeper Nina
Chikanov. But her best friend the goal post
came up huge as the shot clanged off the
post. A few minutes later, Burlingame winger
Alexis Prieto started changing the complexion
of the game. Playing on the right ank, she ran
at the Pioneer defenders, beating them and
sending quality crosses into the Pioneer penal-
ty box. After a couple of crosses were pulled
down by the Pioneer goalkeeper, Prieto found
her range. In the 56th minute, she sent a per-
fect cross that found the head of Malia Smith,
who headed her shot right to the goalkeeper.
Four minutes later, the pressure nally paid
off for the Panthers. This time, Prieto sent a
ball back into the mideld to Rachel Byrd,
who then targeted Lena Mendelson about 25
yards from the goal. Mendelson took a shot
that beat the goalkeeper and slipped just inside
the post to give Burlingame a 1-0 lead.
Four minutes later, the Panthers doubled
their lead. Again, Mendelson hit a shot on
frame, but the goalkeeper appeared to have a
bead on it. She shufed to her left, but did not
get her body behind the shot. She caught the
ball as she was moving and the momentum of
the shot ripped it out of the goalkeepers hands
and off the post. Smith crashed the goal and
easily buried the rebound for the games nal
Weve scored almost all our goals (this sea-
son) in the second half, De Rosa said.

victory is nearly 15 points and theyve
allowed 50 points or more only three times so
far this season.
Lepeltak, who has coached at Skyline under
the legendary Pete Pontacq, as well as head
coaching stints at Notre Dame de Namur, as
well as the Terra Nova girls program to name
just a few of his stops, knows what it takes to
make a team competitive.
I think my resume is pretty good. When I
walk in the gym, I know how to command the
gym, Lepeltak said.
But as any coach will tell you, they become
much better coaches when they have talented
players implementing their styles. Lepeltak
believes that is the case with this years team.
The Panthers have seven returners from last
year and Lepeltak expects all of them to play
important roles. Add in the re-emergence of
Dana Michaels, who didnt play last year and
dropped eight 3-pointers on Harker, along
with a handful of four-year varsity players and
Lepeltak believes it could be a special year for
Im a defensive coach, but this team is a bit
different. They can get up and down the court
and they can score, Lepeltak said. Were
averaging 56 a game. Theyre doing that to
spite me.
No. The Panthers are doing that because
they can. Michaels and Lauren Rally, a four-
year varsity player, have been lighting it up as
shooting guards. Sarah Gogarty has been a
rock at the point guard position and with Nora
Gustafson, Nina Newman, Katie Gutierrez
and Jessica Privado-Baker, the Panthers have
the size to compete in the front court.
The strength of this team is they can score
the ball, Lepeltak said. We have six, seven
players who can score. Right now, weve been
guard oriented, but we can get scoring out of
a lot of kids. I have to better utilize the big
kids. I just have to gure out how to use.
I think we can become an even better
offensive team. Thats the thing that excites
me. I think weve only scratched the surface
of how good an offensive team we can be.

TRENTON, N.J. Pro sports leagues have
experienced nearly unprecedented success
despite the existence of illegal and legal gam-
bling and therefore cant claim harm if New
Jersey legalizes sports betting, an attorney for
the state argued Tuesday.
Theres no evidence that gambling has hurt
the sports leagues and their reputation, said
Theodore Olson, a former U.S. solicitor gener-
al who has joined the states legal team. All
evidence shows sports have grown in this coun-
try alongside the growth of gambling, some
legal, some not legal. Illegal gambling on the
Super Bowl has made the Super Bowl the most
watched event on TV in the world.
U.S. District Judge Michael Shipp heard
arguments Tuesday from both sides as he
weighs whether to throw out the lawsuit by the
NFL, NBA, NHL, Major League Baseball and
the NCAA or to let it proceed to trial. After pre-
sentations lasting about 90 minutes from Olson
and plaintiffs attorney Jeffrey Mishkin, Shipp
said he would issue a written ruling by Friday.
The leagues led suit in August after Gov.
Chris Christie vowed to defy a federal ban on
sports wagering. New Jerseys Legislature
enacted a sports betting law in January, limiting
bets to the Atlantic City casinos and the states
horse racing tracks.
New Jersey has said it plans to license sports
betting as soon as January, and in October pub-
lished regulations governing licenses. But the
state agreed to give the leagues 30 days notice
before it grants any licenses and hasnt done so
yet, an attorney generals ofce spokesman
If Shipp sides with the state and dismisses the
lawsuit, the leagues are expected to appeal
immediately. The federal government also
could join the case.
A 1990s federal law prohibited sports gam-
bling in all states but Nevada, where bettors can
gamble on single games, and three other states
that were allowed to offer multi-game parlay
betting. New Jersey has argued the law usurps
the authority of state legislatures and discrimi-
nates by grandfathering in some states.
Tuesdays hearing revolved around whether
the leagues and NCAA could show they would
suffer harm from New Jerseys action, thereby
giving them standing in court.
There will be greater suspicion about all of
the normal incidents in the game, every dropped
pass, every missed free throw if sports gam-
bling is allowed to spread, Mishkin argued.
Theyre our games. That gives us a personal
stake, and that gives us standing.
He disputed the states contention that fanta-
sy sports leagues, which the pro leagues sanc-
tion, are tantamount to gambling because they
dilute fans allegiance to a specic team.
The leagues view fantasy as just that:
Pretend, made up, he said. Its like the differ-
ence between playing Monopoly and being a
real estate agent.
The two sides offered contrasting views on
how illegal sports gambling would be affected if
New Jerseys law stands.
Olson contended the leagues havent shown
that they would be harmed by the states regu-
lating and supervising what has been occurring
in the shadows for decades. He noted that the
leagues are in regular contact with Las Vegas
sports books to monitor suspicious shifts in
point spreads.

Hirscher wins night
slalom; gatekeeper dies
Defending overall World Cup champion
Marcel Hirscher of Austria was fastest in both
runs Tuesday, winning a night slalom marred
by the death of a gatekeeper.
Hirscher moved past American rival Ted
Ligety into second place in the overall stand-
ings. Ligety, who has dominated in giant
slalom this season, nished ninth.
Under the lights, with thousands of fans lin-
ing the course, Hirscher skied the two runs in
1 minute, 42.50 seconds. He was followed by
Felix Neureuther of Germany and Naoki
Yuasa of Japan.
The race was delayed for about 15 minutes
during the first run. After the first eight
starters, a 70-year-old gatekeeper became ill.
Organizers say he had a history of heart prob-
lems and medical personnel attempted to
resuscitate him for about an hour.
He was identied as a ski instructor in
Madonna di Campiglio, but his name was not
released because his family could not immedi-
ately be notied.
Sports brief
Wednesday Dec. 19, 2012 THEDAILYJOURNAL
By Harold Heckle
MADRID It began as a marriage
of convenience between a coach hungry
to establish himself at the top of his
sport and a club determined to put the
brakes on the runaway success of its
For Jose Mourinho, coaching Real
Madrid added a major notch to his
career, having previously led Inter
Milan to the 2010 Champions League
title and guiding Chelsea to six trophies
in three years.
Madrid president Florentino Perez
banked heavily on Mourinho having the
qualities required to counter Pep
Guardiolas stinging victories with
Barcelona and also the strength of char-
acter to sort out a squad encumbered
with galactico trappings but lacking
any silverware.
Mourinho had proved his Champions
League pedigree early by winning the
trophy with Porto in 2004, aged just 41.
Perez set aside considerations that
Mourinhos fascination with defensive
tactics might grate with his teams tradi-
tion of overwhelming opponents
through attacking prowess.
Two-and-a-half seasons later, the hon-
eymoon is in tatters and the talk is that
it was never a love match anyway.
Spains media has claimed the
Portuguese doesnt understand the
stateliness of Madrid and the rever-
ence it deserves.
As evidence they point to the disre-
spect Mourinho showed to his position
by poking (then assistant coach) Tito
Vilanova in the eye during a melee in
August 2011, and also to how he has
criticized his own players in public for
not showing the guts and commitment
to win matches.
Mourinho was scathing after
Madrids 2-1 loss at Celta Vigo in the
Copa del Rey last Wednesday.
There are players
who have disap-
pointed me, he said.
(Some) didnt want
to play because it
was cold, raining.
Perez showed
unusual warmth as
he quickly stepped
up to defend him on
that occasion.
We have the best coach in the world,
with an impressive track record, Perez
said Sunday. From here, Jose
Mourinho, I give you my acknowledg-
ment, my condence in your work and
my affection.
That was before Sundays 2-2 draw
against lowly Espanyol at the Santiago
Bernabeu, a result that left Madrid in
third place in the league, 13 points
behind leader Barcelona after 16 match-
es, not to mention facing possible elim-
ination from the Copa after a rst-leg
Mourinho conceded it was practical-
ly impossible for his side to retain the
Spanish league title pried from
Guardiolas grip last season.
The distance is too great to achieve
the league, he said after the draw,
words that Perez responded to rapidly.
Madrids sporting principles are
never to give up, however difcult the
challenge, the president said Monday.
The atmosphere in Madrids dressing
room has been tense, leading sports
newspapers Marca and As have repeat-
edly reported in recent weeks. Rumors
that French club Paris Saint-Germain
may be trying to sign Mourinho have
caused unease, as have unsubstantiated
but unceasing speculation that the
Portuguese coach really wants to end up
at Manchester United.
Mourinho has never hidden his admi-
ration for the English Premier League
since beginning work as a translator,
then assistant coach, to Bobby Robson
at Lisbon in 1992 and then Barcelona.
The Portuguese has tried to quash
rumors of his departure.
No, its not true, Mourinho snapped
at a news conference Saturday before a
French journalist had even been able to
pronounce the rst two words of his
With the journalist about to speak
again, Mourinho interjected that in May
he had signed a new four-year contract
to remain as Madrid coach until 2016,
quashing the Frenchmans curiosity
about any possible link with PSG.
But last seasons success, in which
Madrid nished with 100 points and
121 goals and Guardiola left the sport
for a break, has been all but forgotten.
Barcelona has eclipsed Mourinhos
squad, making it look at-footed. The
media have been quick to lay the blame
on Mourinhos methods.
His choking style of leadership, his
persistent and obsessive deance, have
finally exhausted his players, said
sports columnist Alfredo Relano in As.
The problem for Perez and fans is a
lack of ideas as to who could replace
Mourinho. A random question ung at
Joachim Loew last week about his
chances of taking the job was immedi-
ately dismissed by the German national
I do not care about the rumors. This
is just speculation, Loew said to
German Television station Sport1. Jose
Mourinho has a contract until 2016. I
have a contract until 2014.
Despite the criticism and doubt that
Mourinho has engendered, there is still
great respect for his ability, as Perezs
words demonstrated. No trophy is more
precious to Madrid than the Champions
League, and hope still remains there.
The Spanish media grudgingly asked
on Monday if Mourinho had the pulse
to turn Madrids situation around.
He still can, but much will have to
change, Relano said.

Real Madrid turns sour

LONDON Lionel Messi brushed aside all challengers in the AP
Global Soccer rankings this week, although his Barcelona team came
close to being topped by new world club champion Corinthians.
Messi, with scored two goals in La Liga last weekend for a stag-
gering 90 this year, received 169 points of a possible 190 from 19
global soccer journalists on The Associated Press panel.
Corinthians goalkeeper Cassio played a key role in the 1-0 defeat
of Chelsea in the Club World Cup nal in Japan on Sunday. He
earned 72 points, two more than Manchester Uniteds Dutch striker
Robin van Persie.
Messi gets two more in the best match in La Liga, panelist Orfeo
Suarez of Spains El Mundo newspaper said. And Barcelona has 13
points more than Real Madrid.
After being knocked off the top of the rankings last week by
Manchester United, Barcelona was back in rst place this week, by
one point over Corinthians.
The victory over Chelsea in the nal of the Club World Cup
returned the trophy to South America after six years, panelist
Leonardo Bertozzi of ESPN Brazil said, rewarding the brilliant
work of coach Tite who did it without any world-class players.
Barcelona drew 161 of 190 points and Corinthians was at 160.
United was in third place at 103, just ahead of Juventus, which stayed
in fourth.
Paris Saint-Germain notched its highest ranking since it began in
October, winning 75 points to nish fth after the impressive 1-0 vic-
tory over Lyon that took the Parisian side to the top of Ligue 1.
Manchester City came in sixth, ahead of Lazio and AC Milan, giving
Italy three teams in the top 10.
Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch put Cassio in the
top spot.
Players who do good things in very important games should get
a little extra credit, which is why Cassios play in the Club World Cup
gets top billing this week, ahead of standby Messi, who usually is in
the top spot, Timmerman said.
Corinthians are the rst non-European club Ive put on my ballot.
I feel a little awkward putting the club thats sixth in the Brazilian
standings in my top 10, but they beat Chelsea, which counts for
something. Paris Saint-Germain jumping over Lyon made the deci-
sion easy at the bottom of the top 10.

Weve got a good team. We practice hard
and we work hard every day. And we want it.
The Niners snapped New Englands 20-
game home winning streak in the month of
December. They slowed down Tom Brady and
his high-powered offense after coming to
Foxborough, Mass., as an underdog.
49ers center Jonathan Goodwin played for
the Jets team that beat the Patriots in
December back in 2002 even though he
didnt get on the eld.
I guess I can think, for maybe a second,
that I was some kind of good luck charm,
Goodwin said with a grin.
Next up will be stopping a Seattle team that
has gone off for 50 points in back-to-back
games behind rookie quarterback Russell
San Francisco is 64-32 in night games,
including 26-17 on the road and 13-9 on
Love prime time games, Staley posted on
Twitter before Sunday nights win.
I dont mind em, wideout Randy Moss
said, unwilling to elaborate when asked fol-
low-up questions.
San Francisco won at Arizona on Monday
night on Oct. 29, then again on Monday night
at home against the Chicago Bears on Nov.
19. They won a Sunday night game against
the Lions at Candlestick Park in September,
and against Seattle on a Thursday night game
Oct. 18.
I think everybody gets up for it, said
Smith, tied for the NFL sacks lead with
Houstons J.J. Watt at 19 1/2. Weve played
under the lights in high school, Friday Night
Lights and I think thats where everybody
kind of got their real love for football. Just
being back in that atmosphere, I think every-
one still has that childhood in them, so we all
get amped for it.
Gore gets it, and insists the Niners will have
no trouble getting energized for another night
game with so much on the line at this late
stage of the season. A year ago, the 49ers ran
away with the NFC West and clinched early.
In December, you want to be the hot team,
Gore said. We know that if we get the win we
can win the division. Theyve been playing
great. I think they got better as a team each
week since they played us. We want to claim
the division and the playoffs.
Notes: Harbaugh said on his radio show
Tuesday he expects DT Justin Smith to play
after he sustained an arm injury against the
Patriots and had an MRI exam. It would be his
186th straight start. Everybody affectionate-
ly refers to Justin Smith around here as The
Cowboy, Harbaugh said. I expect well see
The Cowboy. Knowing what I know of Justin
Smith and the situation, I think The Cowboy
will be around, saddled up . roping and riding.
If its humanly possible, The Cowboy will be
out there, roping and riding. ... 49ers DL and
special teams regular Demarcus Dobbs said
he wont need surgery on his right knee after
he sustained a partially torn medial collateral
ligament and posterior cruciate ligament in
the third quarter of a Dec. 9 win against
Miami. No surgery, thats a blessing, Dobbs

He also has extensive international experi-
ence, having participated in both the 2008
Olympics and 2009 World Baseball Classic
for Japan.
Nakajima will get a $1.25 million signing
bonus and base salaries of $2.25 million next
year and $2.5 million in 2014. He can earn up
to $1.3 million in performance bonuses next
season. Whatever bonuses he earns will be
added to his salary in 2014, when he can earn
up to $600,000 in bonuses based on playing
time. Nakajima could earn as much as $9.2
million his rst two years.
There is also a $500,000 buyout if the As
dont exercise their option for 2015, and
Nakajima will be eligible for free agency at
the end of the deal. The contract also includes
awards bonuses and various perks including
an interpreter, ights to and from Japan and
moving expenses.
Nakajima nearly came over to the majors
last offseason after the New York Yankees bid
$2.5 million for his rights. But when New
York could not agree to a contract with
Nakajima, he returned to the Lions and the
Yankees kept their money. Nakajima was a
free agent this offseason, so the As did not
need to pay a posting fee.
The As got little offensive production at
shortstop this year, when Pennington and
Drew earned most of the playing time.
Oaklands shortstops collectively batted .203
second lowest in the majors with 12
homers and 46 RBIs. The .272 on-base per-
centage from the teams shortstops was also
lowest in the majors.
The As dealt Pennington to Arizona in
October in a three-team trade for outelder
Chris Young.
Drew, acquired in a midseason trade with
the Diamondbacks, became a free agent when
the As declined a $10 million mutual option.
He agreed to a $9.5 million, one-year deal
with Boston this week, a person familiar with
the negotiations told The Associated Press on
condition of anonymity because Drew needed
to take a physical before the contract could be
Oakland also traded outfielder Collin
Cowgill to the New York Mets for minor
league third baseman Jefry Marte. Nakajima

When Cowgirl Creamery breaks out the
raclette on weekends in San Franciscos Ferry
Building Marketplace, people oat into the
store almost trancelike.
They smell that aroma coming down the
hall in the ferry building and theyre drawn to
it like a cartoon, Sue Conley, co-founder of
the San Francisco-based cheese company, says
of raclette the name of a cheese, as well as
a dish and the machine used to make it.
Which is surprisingly unhelpful. What is
raclette? Consider it a more sophisticated
answer to fondue.
Raclette which derives from the French
word meaning to scrape involves melting
the surface of a wheel of semi-soft raclette
cheese, then scraping the gooey part onto
boiled potatoes and other accompaniments. A
tradition of the Swiss Alps, raclette is still little
known in the United States. But that may be
The pungent, washed rind cheese has been
made in Switzerland for centuries in the canton
of Valais. Its most distinctive feature is that it
becomes creamy and smooth when melted.
The Swiss eat it as a meal, accompanied by
boiled potatoes, cornichons and pearl onions,
with liberal drafts of white wine or tea.
Raclette also makes great street food, served on
a slab of bread.
In the United States, its hard to nd outside
high-end cheese shops, supermarkets such as
Whole Foods Market and the occasional very,
very cool party. Shops like Cowgirl Creamery
sell and serve raclette. Murrays Cheese in
New York also is experimenting with it.
Raclette should naturally appeal to palates
weaned on grilled cheese. But a number of
obstacles have slowed its rise. Raclette tradi-
tionally has been imported, which can make it
both expensive and hard to nd. While most
raclette still is imported, a number of American
cheese makers have begun producing it.
Emmi Roth USA, the American arm of a
large Swiss cheese maker, has been making
small amounts of raclette for about 20 years.
Leelanau Cheese Company in Michigan began
crafting handmade raclette in 1995. And last
winter, Spring Brook Farm in Vermont also
began offering raclette. While that means there
is more of it is available, getting the word out
is another story.
Even the imported Swiss and French
raclette arent really marketed and there are
only a few producers in the U.S. making it,
says Nora Weiser, executive director of the
American Cheese Society, based in Denver,
Colo. Its a matter of awareness in many
cases. If awareness is raised and more people
try it, I think people will get into it.
Which may already be happening. Its no
longer hard to nd a raclette machine. A trip to
the mall and retailers like Williams-Sonoma
will do. They also are readily available online.
Boska, a Dutch company that sells raclette
machines, says U.S. sales of professional
setups have doubled since last year. Home
models have grown as much as 30 percent.
But raclette acionados say even equipment
shouldnt stand in your way.
You dont need a fancy oven, says Rene
Weber, master cheese maker and vice president
of operations for Emmi Roth USA. You can
just cut a quarter-inch slice, put it in a Teon
pan, and heat it up and when it melts you put it
on a plate. Thats how the Swiss eat it at home.
Leelanau still makes just 30,000 pounds of
their handmade raclette cheese a year, but that
gure is four times what it was when they start-
ed 17 years ago. Weber says raclette makes up
less than 10 percent of sales for his company,
but that the gure is growing.
Think of the 70s when fondue became all
the rage. Raclette is next maybe, says
American Cheese Societys Weiser. People
are more open to different cheeses. Theyre
looking for local products and looking for
ways to support producers in their region.
Theyre more open and their palates are more
prepared for it.
Raclette is the perfect party food. Like fon-
due, its all about melting cheese. The biggest
difference is that raclette (the name of both the
cheese used and the overall dish) is grilled or
broiled, rather than cooked in a pot.
Typically, raclette is melted in individual
portions using a special raclette grill. The
cheese then is scraped onto a persons plate
over a serving of boiled potatoes, pickled
onions and gherkins or cornichons (another
kind of small pickle). Other accompaniments
might include ham or dried beef, along with
various vegetables and fresh bread.
Raclette grills usually have two levels a
top for heating vegetables or meat, and a lower
broiler level for melting the cheese. Individual
pans are used for melting the cheese. Raclette
cheese is obviously the most popular cheese to
use to for the dish. If you cant nd it, another
rm, easy melting Swiss cheese can be substi-
tuted, such as Emmentaler.

LOS ANGELES The most prized holiday
guests are those that eat with gusto, express
their appreciation and lick their plates clean.
So what if some of them eat off the oor, get
a little sloppy and never help with the dishes?
At Nancy Gubertis house, Flower, a 6-year-
old black-and-white shih tzu, will eat the same
organic turkey and spinach as Gubertis own
Shes part of the family and shes such a
good dog, Guberti said. We treat her with the
utmost respect, like youd want to be treated.
Guberti, a certied nutritionist in New York
City, makes a special dinner for the whole fam-
ily to share ve times a year Christmas, New
Years, Easter, Thanksgiving and Flowers June
10 birthday.
Plenty of people cook for their dogs year-
round, but the holidays might be the easiest
time because human menus can be so easily
adapted to their needs, said Sarah Zorn, a New
York pet columnist for the magazine Everyday
with Rachael Ray. She also creates and tests
most of the pet recipes the magazine runs.
Do unto your dog as you are doing to your-
self, she said. Ingredients that are good for
humans are very often good for dogs too, she
Dogs have millions of taste buds, said Dr.
Katy Nelson. But the veterinarian said those
taste buds are not really well dened and
neither is the dogs sense of smell.
My dog thinks the garbage can smells good,
so its all subjective, Zorn said.
Nelson, who hosts The Pet Show on
Saturdays on News Channel 8 in Washington,
D.C., had guests who made turkey cakes she
plans to make for Papi, her 70-pound
Labradoodle, on Christmas morning.
They look like crabcakes, with brown
rice, vegetables and shredded turkey. You
mix that with an egg, make patties and sear
them in a pan, she said.
How would you x a traditional holiday din-
ner of appetizers, turkey, mashed potatoes and
gravy, candied sweet potatoes, green bean
casserole, cranberry sauce, biscuits and dessert
to serve dogs and humans? No matter how
spicy the human food is, the dogs has to be
bland and low-fat.
Before dinner, they can graze like every-
body else, have a couple of carrot sticks and
cheese cubes, Zorn said.
When it comes to preparing the turkey, go
saltless, she said. Eliminate onions and garlic,
white our, rened sugars and processed foods.
That doesnt mean you cant put anything in
the dogs meal. There are actually a lot of
herbs that are good for dogs. Parsley is good for
them its a natural breath freshener. Ginger is
good for digestion and turmeric is good.
Its hard to make biscuits without our, Zorn
said. But try to use whole wheat, barley, rice,
ax or amaranth because they should really
have a low-gluten diet.
For side dishes, make the green beans with
chicken stock or sauteed mushroom soup.
Before you candy the sweet potatoes, take one
out for the dog and steam it with a little cinna-
mon and ginger. White potatoes are OK, too,
although not as healthy as sweet potatoes. A lit-
tle cranberry sauce is good for a dog. Instead of
gravy, use turkey juice or stock, Zorn said.
For dessert, Zorn recommends gingerbread
biscuits. Dogs also love peanut butter cookies
with yogurt frosting, she said.
Zorn tries out many of her creations on her
own dog Rowdy, a hound mix. He is the rst
rung of the testing process. Hes my child to be
sure obsessed with food. If this dog doesnt
eat it, the recipe needs to be scrapped, she said.
All of the dogs food can go in one bowl,
Zorn said. Every other day of the year, Rowdy
gets 1 1/2 cups of food twice a day, so hell get
the same on Christmas Day. We are talking
about making this special, but hes not going to
gain 10 pounds.
Family dog is on the guest list for holiday dinner

Whenever I have too little time
and too few ingredients on hand
or when Ive been eating too
much meat I cook up some
broccoli pasta.
Which means I make it for din-
ner about once every 10 days! Its
delicious, healthy, inexpensive
and easy to prepare. The recipe, in
fact, is a cinch, consisting of just a
few ingredients pasta, chicken
broth, Parmigiano-Reggiano, olive
oil and a large head of the name-
sake crucifer. I always have four
of those ingredients in house, so
all I need to do is run out and pick
up some broccoli and Im good to
Another of this recipes charms
is its flexibility. I can swap in veg-
etable broth for chicken broth,
spaghetti for the angel hair pasta,
and any other grated hard cheese
for the Parmigiano-Reggiano.
Sometimes Ill even lose the
broccoli in favor of roasted cauli-
flower or Brussels sprouts.
But what makes the dish so pop-
ular in my house is its comfort
factor. I serve it soupy, so you can
slurp the chicken broth along with
the strands of pasta. I also make
sure theres some crusty bread
within easy reach, which helps to
mop up the broth not captured
with a spoon.
In the original version of this
recipe (Ive been making it for
years), I sauteed the broccoli in
olive oil over very high heat until
it was quite brown around the
edges. The problem with this
method is that the broccoli quick-
ly soaked up all the olive oil and I
always ended up having to add
quite a bit more. I switched to
oven-roasting it, which helps to
decrease the amount of olive oil
necessary. It also requires very lit-
tle baby-sitting.
This dish is so economical its
almost ecological. I use all of the
broccoli, not just the florets. For
years I used to trash the stems, but
the stems are also plenty edible.
Just peel off the skin, cut them up,
and youre ready.
Start to finish: 30 minutes
Servings: 4
1 large head broccoli (about 1
1/4 to 1 1/2 pounds)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive
Kosher salt
1 to 2 teaspoons red pepper
flakes, or to taste
1 quart low-sodium chicken
1/2 pound whole-wheat capelli-
ni pasta
1 cup freshly grated

one of the racks in the top third of
the oven.
Bring a large pot of water to a
Cut the broccoli, including the
stems, into 2-inch pieces. Peel any
thick stem pieces to remove the
thick skin.
On a rimmed baking sheet,
arrange the broccoli in a single
layer. Drizzle with the oil, then
sprinkle with salt to taste and toss
well. Place on the top oven rack
and roast for 8 to 10 minutes, or
until the broccoli is crisp tender
and slightly brown at the edges.
Transfer the broccoli to a large
skillet, add the pepper flakes and
the chicken broth, then bring to a
boil over medium-high heat.
When the water in the large pot
comes to a boil, add a hefty pinch
of salt and the pasta. Stir and cook
for 2 minutes, or until the pasta is
limp but not quite cooked through.
Drain the pasta and transfer it to
the broccoli pan. Simmer for 2
minutes, or until the pasta is al
dente. Stir in the Parmigiano-
Reggiano and salt to taste. Ladle
into shallow soup bowls and serve
with crusty bread.

CARACAS, Venezuela Venezuelan
President Hugo Chavez has a respiratory
infection after undergoing cancer surgery in
Cuba and must have complete rest for the
next few days, the government said Tuesday.
The socialist leader is in stable condition
after being diagnosed with the respiratory
infection on Monday, Information Minister
Ernesto Villegas said on television, reading a
government statement.
It has been controlled, Villegas said. In
the opinion of the doctors, this type of ailment
is one of the consequences that appear with the
greatest frequency in patients who have under-
gone complicated surgeries.
The infection appeared a week after a six-
hour operation that the
government has said
involved complications.
The medical team has
said that President Chavez
should have complete rest
in the coming days and
receive ... the prescribed
medical treatment, with
the purpose of maintaining
the stability of his vital
signs that he currently enjoys, Villegas said.
Concluding the statement, he said: Long
live Chavez!
Tuesdays announcement came amid uncer-
tainty and concern over the 58-year-old presi-
dents health.
Chavez hasnt spoken publicly since his
Dec. 11 surgery for an undisclosed type of
pelvic cancer. It was his fourth cancer-related
operation since June 2011.
Medical experts say that its common for
patients who have undergone major surgeries
to suffer respiratory infections and that how a
patient fares can vary widely from a quick
recovery in a couple of days to a ght for life
on a respirator.
Five experts consulted by the Associated
Press agreed that its hard to predict what
Chavezs likely scenario might be given the
available information.
If its not a pneumonia ... it can be resolved
in 48 hours with the proper antibiotics, said
Dr. Maria Crista de Blanco, an internist at the
University Hospital of Caracas.
Dr. Carlos Castro, scientic director of the
Colombian League Against Cancer in Bogota,
said that because Chavez has gone through
chemotherapy and has probably been taking
steroids, his immune system is weakened and
complications of various sorts may be more
That hes stable doesnt mean that hes
completely been cured of the infection,
Castro told the AP in a phone interview. I
dont think hes out of danger. The rst 10
days after surgery are very critical, and any-
thing can happen.
He said that Chavez must be in an intensive
care unit and under constant observation.
Chavezs elder brother, Adan, planned to
travel to Cuba on Tuesday to visit the presi-
dent, the government newspaper Correo del
Orinoco reported. It also said that the presi-
dents father, Hugo de los Reyes Chavez, had
plans to travel to Havana and that Chavezs
mother might go with him, though that had not
been conrmed.
Against the backdrop of Chavezs illness,
many Venezuelans are talking about the possi-
bility of a looming transition of power and a
new presidential election. Before undergoing
surgery, Chavez designated Vice President
Nicolas Maduro as his chosen successor to
take his place if necessary.
Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos
expressed concern Tuesday about what might
happen if a post-Chavez transition were to go
badly. In a radio interview, he said a peaceful
and problem-free change would have no
repercussion in the region.
What would be terrible is if that transition
werent easy, were problematic, Santos said
in an interview with Colombias W Radio.
That would generate problems in the region.
Thats why Ive said that Chavez is a factor of
stability at this time.
Chavezs government has been appointed a
facilitator in peace talks between Colombias
government and rebels, and Santos noted that
he has had a good relationship with
Venezuelas leftist leader despite their differ-

Matthews said he had no idea a competing
legal opinion from the City Attorneys Ofce
was given in February to allow for the 7-
Eleven to open up.
While some, during public comments,
called city planners incompetent or liars,
Planning Commissioners defended the city
There are troubling gaps in the process,
Commissioner Joshua Hugg said last night.
But he and the other four commissioners,
said they do not believe that any staff acted in
a corrupt manner.
According to city staff, the denition of
abandonment does not only mean ceasing the
use for a specied time. There must also be
evidence of an intent to abandon the use,
which means that the owner is purposefully
acting in a manner that indicates the owner is
not seeking to continue the legal non-con-
forming use. In this specic case, the intent to
abandon the use was not in evidence, accord-
ing to city staff.
But Commissioner Rick Bonilla said the use
was both discontinued and abandoned.
The previous owners of the market, Isaac
Choy and Susan Lin of Hillsborough, did mar-
ket the building for a medical ofce before
entering contract with PDP to nd a new ten-
ant for the site but they contend there was no
intent to abandon the site as a market use.
Choy also testied at last nights meeting
and said he had no idea PDP was courting 7-
Eleven to occupy the property.
At the conclusion of the meeting, Dianne

bor to this point.

officially a youth-run nonprofit with
many San Mateo County and Stanford
teens on the helm. Founded in December
2010 with the goal of creating a confer-
ence for the Bay Area lesbian, gay,
bisexual and transgender known as
LGBT and allied youth community,
the group of young leaders recently
completed requirements to become a
nonprot. Its celebrating by launching
its rst public service announcement
featuring many of the BAYS board.
The tag line of the video is Decide to
Make a Difference, said President of the
Board Sam Alavi, a senior at Aragon
High School, who added the goal was to
empower young people to realize they
have the capacity and ability to make a
difference in their community.
A 2011 study of 8,584 middle and
high school students found nearly eight
out of 10 lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgender students experienced
harassment at school in the past year,
according to the Gay, Lesbian and
Straight Education Network which
released the results in September. A
majority of these students felt unsafe or
harassed as a result of their sexual orien-
tation and about a third had recently
skipped a day of school due to safety
During 10 years of surveying on the
topic, GLSEN found a decrease in hear-
ing homophobic remarks but found stu-
dents reactions to bullying and harass-
ment as more severe.
Locally, a number of gay teens and
college students have found a voice in
activism and support from school
administrators. Noting that isnt the case
not only across the country but in
California, the group decided to apply
for nonprot status and work to empow-
er individuals to make a difference.
BAYS web director Darcey Pancoast,
a sophomore at Stanford University,
joined the group last year after being in
the same hall as Jason Galisatus, Aragon
alum and BAYS executive director.
Pancoast said it was difcult for her to
come out despite having supportive peo-
ple around her. Considering that, she
nds it difcult to imagine the chal-
lenges for someone who isnt in a sup-
portive environment.
The one-minute video features the
BAYS leaders talking about knowing
what it feels like to be bullied or to feel
unsafe but that people can choose to
make a change.
While the group works within the Bay
Area, the idea was to make the video
pertinent to anyone who watches it.
Pancoast said if it inspires one kid to
speak out when another is being bullied,
then thats a win.
The group is planning its second sum-
mit in 2013 but with the new nonprot
status is also working on additional proj-
ects like helping to create curriculum
about tolerance for middle school stu-
dents, said Alavi. Also, a Day of Action
to be held in February will allow people
throughout the state to sign up to volun-
teer for other LGBT organizations a
move the group hopes will create a
stronger bond between activists of all

solutions: Limiting incoming kinder-
gartens to 60, 30 less than normally
allowed, or relocating the sixth grade
class to Kennedy. The latter is the rec-
ommendation from the principal and
trustees before the board Wednesday.
Limiting the incoming students would
result in a long-term need for combina-
tion classes in the upper grades which
neither the principal nor teachers sup-
ported in their statements. Moving stu-
dents to Kennedy, however, would open
up space at Adelante while allowing stu-
dents to continue with the immersion
model of having core classes in both
Spanish and English, according to the
staff report. In addition, those students
would then have access to physical edu-
cation and an elective course. Kennedy
currently offers the immersion program
for seventh and eighth grade students.
If approved, sixth grade students
would be housed in a mostly self-con-
tained area of the campus.
In a November letter signed by numer-
ous teachers, staff requested that all
alternatives be considered but also that a
solution be reached quickly as the topic
has become divisive within the school
Demand for the immersion program
has been growing. If the waitlist would
support it, the district would consider
offering the program at another site in
addition to Adelante in the 2013-14
school year, according to the staff report.
If an alternative site is opened, the plan
would also be to send sixth graders from
that school to Kennedy, according to the
staff report.
At the same meeting, the board will
approve the rst interim budget report.
The board meets 7 p.m. Wednesday,
Dec. 19 at the District Office, 750
Bradford St., Redwood City.

move to the new state-of-the-art facility
at the Bay Meadows Phase II develop-
ment in 2014.
The private high school will accom-
modate up to 450 students.
Nueva School currently operates a
pre-kindergarten through eighth grade
campus on Skyline Boulevard in
Hillsborough and was founded in 1967.
We are pleased to work with the
Nueva School, CSM President Michael
Claire wrote in a statement. We believe
that this partnership will be benecial to
both the college and to the Nueva
School. We are pleased to host the inau-
gural high school class and we look for-
ward to working with their ofcials to
ensure a successful academic year.
The freshman class is expected to be
between 75 and 100 students and will
start its studies at CSM.
The new Nueva high school campus
will feature a 133,000 square-foot sus-
tainably designed facility on 2.75 acres
overlooking a 12-acre public park, with
exible classrooms and seminar spaces,
performing and ne arts studios, science
laboratories and tech shops, an attached
athletic center and gymnasium, exten-
sive student and community center, two-
level writing and research center and a
future 425-seat theater.
An 18,220-square-foot garage for
parking is also part of the plan.

BEIRUT Syrian ghter jets
bombed a Palestinian refugee camp
in Damascus Tuesday for the sec-
ond time this week after rebels
made signicant advances, seizing
large areas within the camp,
activists said.
Meanwhile, American foreign
correspondent Richard Engel of
NBC said that he and his crew
escaped unharmed during a reght
after being held captive for ve
days by pro-regime gunmen.
The rebels fighting to topple
Assads regime have pressed hard
against the regime in the past
weeks, capturing air bases and mil-
itary installations in and around
Their offensive in the Palestinian
refugee camp of Yarmouk in south-
ern Damascus, which began Friday,
is aimed at driving out a pro-gov-
ernment Palestinian faction.
The British-based Syrian
Observatory for Human Rights and
other activists in the camp said
ghter jets dropped bombs on the
camp Tuesday afternoon, but there
was no immediate word of casual-
Similar airstrikes on Sunday
killed at least eight people in
When the revolt against Assads
rule began 21 months ago, the half-
million-strong Palestinian commu-
nity in Syria stayed on the sidelines.
But as the civil war deepened,
most Palestinians backed the rebels,
while some groups such as the
Popular Front for the Liberation of
Palestine-General Command
have been ghting on the govern-
ment side.

BEIRUT NBCs chief foreign
correspondent Richard Engel said
Tuesday he and members of his net-
work crew escaped unharmed after
ve days of captivity in Syria, where
more than a dozen pro-regime gun-
men dragged them from their car,
killed one of their rebel escorts and
subjected them to mock executions.
Appearing on NBCs Today
show, an unshaven Engel said he and
his team escaped during a reght
Monday night between their captors
and rebels at a checkpoint. They
crossed into Turkey on Tuesday.
NBC did not say how many peo-
ple were kidnapped with Engel,
although two other men, producer
Ghazi Balkiz and photographer John
Kooistra, appeared with him on the
Today show. Another member of
Engels team, Aziz Akyavas of
Turkey, also
escaped. It was
not confirmed
whether every-
one was
accounted for.
Engel said he
believes the kid-
nappers were a
Shiite militia
group loyal to
the Syrian government, which has
lost control over swaths of the coun-
trys north and is increasingly on the
defensive in a civil war that has
killed 40,000 people since March
They kept us blindfolded,
bound, said the 39-year-old Engel,
who speaks and reads Arabic. We
werent physically beaten or tor-
tured. A lot of psychological torture,
threats of being killed. They made us
choose which one of us would be
shot rst and when we refused, there
were mock shootings, he added.
They were talking openly about
their loyalty to the government,
Engel said. He said the captors were
trained by the Iranian Revolutionary
Guard and allied with Hezbollah, the
Lebanese Shiite militant group, but
he did not elaborate.
There was no mention of the kid-
napping by Syrias state-run news
Both Iran and Hezbollah are close
allies of the embattled Syrian gov-
ernment of President Bashar Assad,
who used military force to crush
mostly peaceful protests against his
regime. The crackdown on protests
led many in Syria to take up arms
against the government, and the con-
ict has become a civil war.
Engel said he was told the kidnap-
pers wanted to exchange him and his
crew for four Iranian and two
Lebanese prisoners being held by
the rebels.

BAGHDAD Iraqi President
Jalal Talabani has suffered a stroke
and was in intensive care at a
Baghdad hospital Tuesday, injecting
new uncertainty into the countrys
political future a year after the U.S.
military left.
Although his ofcial powers are
limited, Talabani, 79, is respected
by many Iraqis as a rare unifying
gure seen as able to rise above the
ethnic and sec-
tarian rifts that
still divide the
country. Known
for his joking
manner and
wa l r u s - l i k e
mo u s t a c h e ,
Talabani has
been actively
involved in try-
ing to mediate
an ongoing crisis between Iraqs
central government and the coun-
trys ethnic Kurdish minority, from
which he hails.
Iraqi state TV and several of-
cials, including the prime ministers
spokesman and Deputy Prime
Minister Saleh al-Mutlaq, con-
rmed to the Associated Press that
Talabani had a stroke. The severity
remains unclear.
Talabanis spokesman, Nasser al-
Ani, told reporters that the president
is in stable condition, though he did
not say what he was suffering from.
Medical ofcials who appeared with
him were just as circumspect. They
did not take questions.
