City bans new massage parlors

San Carlos passes emergency ordinance;officials also mull ban on Styrofoam,plastic bags
By Michelle Durand

San Carlos officials agreed Monday night to ban new massage permits for 45 days with hopes the county or state will help close licensing loopholes they believe make it easier for prostitution to ourish. The emergency moratorium can be extended another year by council

vote at the end of the 45-day period. Massage permits werent the only city issue facing termination at the council meeting. The City Council also directed staff to further investigate the possibility of banning both single-use plastic bags and polystyrene food containers, said Assistant City Manager Brian Moura. The primary question for those bans are not necessarily if theyre

desired but if the city will use a county template, possibly saving themselves up to $150,000 for an environmental review, or author their own anti-polystyrene ordinance. Under the county umbrella, an idea received favorably, that jurisdiction would handle outreach and enforcement. The council seemed to denitely be leaning toward a polystyrene ban but what the single-use bag ban will

ultimately look like is anyones Foster City also guess, said Mayor considers ban Andy Klein. on polystyrene The council will See page 3 revisit the idea in the fall. The city is also hoping the county tweaks its massage ordinance which it can then follow. The state took over massage therapist licensing from individual cities in 2009 and,


since then, Sheriffs Capt. Greg Rothaus, head of the San Carlos Patrol Bureau, said the number of questionable applications has risen signicantly on a weekly average. The San Carlos Patrol Bureau of the Sheriffs Ofce has also elded a number of complaints and some massage businesses have been found on escort websites, Rothaus said.

Census: Share of U.S.children hits record low

By Hope Yen

WASHINGTON Children now make up less of Americas population than ever before, even with a boost from immigrant families. And when this generation grows up, it will become a shrinking work force that will have to support the nations expanding elderly population even as the government strains to cut spending for health care, pensions and much else. The latest 2010 census data show that children of immigrants make up one in four people under 18, and are now the fastest-growing segment of the nations youth, an indication that both legal and illegal immigrants as well as minority births are lifting the nations population.

Family farm grows into nine sustainable agricultural properties
By Erin Hurley

South San Francisco may soon be answering calls going to the Pacifica Police Department as the two cities consider sharing dispatch services. If South San Francisco opts to provide dispatch services for Pacica, it will then be doing so for three cities. Restructuring could take up to six months and means $600,000 in income for South San Francisco during the rst year. For Pacica, outsourcing helps realize $1.5 million in total budget savings this year.

hen Larry Jacobs and his wife Sandra Belin started a farm in Pescadero, they expected it to stay a family farm. But it has grown into something much more. Most peoples experience with Jacobs herbs is selecting it from the top shelf of the produce aisle. But behind those little plastic containers is a business of nine organic sustainable agricultur-

al properties in California, and a sustainable growers association in Baja California, Mexico. Jacobs was born and raised in Los Angeles and graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 1974 with a degree in soil sciences. Belin was born in the Midwest and studied early childhood development at the University of Kansas. Jacobs said he was interested in farming because he wanted to do something that I felt was real and meaningful. I wanted to do something that people really needed, Jacobs said. So the day that I was on

my deathbed and dying I could say, Boy, I made some contribution, I did something that was important. At this point, organic and sustainable methods werent the accepted way of farming. Jacobs said his ideas about farming without chemicals were seen as impossible. But he rmly believed in the effectiveness of using more natural means like using benecial insects to eliminate pests and building up the soil life, which

Push on to get rid of Styrofoam

Another city considers ban on polystyrene products
By Bill Silverfarb

Styrofoam continues to be targeted for bans in the county as yet another city will consider forbidding restaurants from using the food service containers for take-out orders. The Foster City Council will consider a ban on Styrofoam, known also as polystyrene, that mirrors a recently passed county ordinance. While some on the council say the ban should be enacted immediately, others say the impact to businesses should be considered rst. The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors recently passed an ordinance banning the use of all polystyrene-based take-out containers in retail food establishments in the unincorporated areas of the county. The ordinance went into effect July 1 and requires all retail food establishments to use only compostable containers. The Board of Supervisors has urged all cities in the county to adopt identical ordinances for the purposes of consistency. In cities where the identical ordinance is adopted, county restaurant inspectors would enforce the city ordinance. In San Mateo County, there are ve cities that have existing polystyrene or Styrofoam bans Burlingame, San Bruno, Pacica, South San Francisco and Millbrae. Belmont and San Carlos are also currently considering such a ban. In February 2009, the Foster Citys Environmental Sustainability Task Force recommended that the city consider banning both plastic bags and polystyrene products. Councilwoman Pam Frisella sat on the task force at the time and would like to see the ban take effect sooner rather than later. Why wait to analyze it. It will be done eventually, Frisella said. We should make a decision and approve it now. Im all for it. Critics of polystyrene say it is a large component of litter and is hazardous to marine life when it enters waterways. It is also non-recyclable, non-biodegradable and not reusable. There is also some evidence that the chemicals used to make polystyrene can be hazardous to human health. Polystyrene products, however, are widely used in food establishments because they are inexpensive, lightweight, moistureresistant and an effective insulator. Some say, however, that banning polystyrene places an undue nancial hardship on small restaurants by requiring them to switch to more expensive products. For this reason, Councilman Charles Bronitsky would rather weigh the impacts to restaurants in Foster City before approving such a ban. Bronitsky wants to make sure restaurant owners who use polystyrene have the opportunity to address the council on the issue. The cost and impact should be studied further, Bronitsky said. He does agree that polystyrene poses environmental risks, however. It is an issue that should be looked at in greater detail, he said. The Foster City Council meets 6:30 p.m., Monday, July 18, City Hall, 620 Foster City Blvd., Foster City.

Burial or Cremation: Why does this matter?

By Paul Larson
MILLBRAE Are you ever asked the question: Burial or Cremation? Im sure youve thought about this but have you ever seriously thought about this? It is tough for some of us to give this topic the time of day but for many more of us this is a topic of curiosity, and also a topic we will need to deal with at some point in our lives. Burial or Cremation is always a personal choice but did you know that in the long run there is little difference between the two, also a BIG difference but not in the way you think? In the eyes of the state both Burial and Cremation are considered a form of final disposition. Still, it is not that simple. A basic explanation would be this: Burial is a final location; Cremation is a step to a final location. What does this mean? In scenario number one: following a visitation & funeral service the deceased is taken to a specific cemetery to be placed in either a ground burial location or a mausoleum space BUT in a second scenario: following that same visitation & funeral service the deceased would be taken to a crematory to complete the cremation process. When the cremated remains are ready a choice would be needed by the next of kin on whether the cremated remains are to be buried in a cemetery, scattered at sea, taken home, etc. So, when Cremation is selected, Burial can still be the final disposition following the cremation, among other choices. People dont deal with this topic every day, and I know that it is imagined by some that Cremation means the deceased is taken away and will just disappear. That is never the case, and there is always the necessity to properly give the deceased a final resting place. The state legally requires it, and the funeral home is mandated to complete & file necessary paperwork reflecting it prior to any final disposition. I know all this may seem complicated, but it is our job as Funeral Directors to make it all very simple and guide you every step of the way. It is our duty to support families as they maneuver through a sometimes daunting situation and unfamiliar territory, and to provide various options on what is available. Many prefer to make pre-need arrangements years in advance so choices can be made in a more relaxed atmosphere. Pause and imagine yourself as the next of kin following the death of a loved one and being asked the question Burial or Cremation?. Can you knowledgeably answer that? It may be a good idea to at least give the question some thought now. Ive served a few families in the past who couldnt answer that question and ended up making a quick decision they later regretted. It wont hurt to let this topic cross your mind, or even to discuss this question with your family, loved ones, clergy or those who give you support. Look back at your family traditions and use that as a guide. Its important for those who care to have a way to say farewell, and for many to have a place to go following the funeral as a way to visit and begin the healing process. If you ever wish to discuss cremation, funeral matters or want to make preplanning arrangements please feel free to call me and my staff at the CHAPEL OF THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650) 588-5116 and we will be happy to guide you in a fair and helpful manner.

Although Measure X passed, the district attempted to pass a parcel tax in the same year, hoping to generate up to $492,000 annually, but it failed by a fraction of a percentage point to reach the two-thirds threshold. Parcel taxes are typically for general use including salaries and bond measures are for facilities. A number of other districts are also considering measures for the November ballot. In June, the San Bruno Park Elementary School District Board of Trustees voted to put a $40 million bond measure with a rate of up to $30 per $100,000 of a propertys assessed value on the ballot. The measure will help with facilities projects including finishing upgrades at Parkside Intermediate School. The San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District is considering asking only Foster City residents to fund a bond to build a fourth elementary school in the city. Lastly, the Burlingame Elementary School District is discussing a parcel tax to fund programs. Burlingame called a special meeting next month to discuss the possibility of putting the measure on the November ballot.

Millbrae eyes $30M bond measure

By Heather Murtagh

Senate Bill 445 by state Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto, to provide 21st century privacy protections for California library patrons, has been signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown. Californias library privacy laws were created before the use of the Internet. As a result, an individuals interaction with the library outside of the typical library book circulation is not protected under current law, according to Simitians ofce.

A $30 million bond measure could be going before Millbrae voters in November in an effort to continue facility upgrades not covered in a 2008 bond of the same size. On Monday night, the Millbrae Elementary School District Board of Trustees expressed support for such a measure. An ofcial vote is expected Monday, July 25, said Superintendent Linda Luna. Such a measure would allow the district to nish projects not covered with the rst bond such as a state-of-the-art cafeteria to accommodate all Taylor Middle School students. Such a measure would require a 55 percent passage rate. Weve brought everything up to code. Now its time to update for learning, said Trustee Jay Price. Millbrae voters approved Measure X, a $30 million bond measure equating to a $19 annual tax per $100,000 of a propertys assessed value, in 2008. A facilities plan generated at the time showed needs higher than the bond could meet. Now the board hopes to showcase how the rst bond was used in hopes of getting public support for another bond. Lower than expected construction costs means the district will nish about $38 million in work using the original $30 million. Price explained the upgrades are hard

to notice but all the bathrooms and sidewalks, for example, are upgraded. Essentially, Measure X allowed the district to reinforce the structures. Additional funds would allow for expansion or buildings to support educational programs, he said. If the district went for a second $30 million measure, it would cost property owners about $25 per $100,000 of assessed property value. With the addition of a new cafeteria at Taylor, the project list will stay true to the original goals of Measure X that werent met. The cafeteria is currently not large enough to house even half the students attending, ofcials said. A new cafeteria, as presented to the board earlier this year, showed an expanded facility with additional covered outdoor picnic benches and a larger kitchen allowing for the district food needs to be produced in one location. Such a building could also act as a community center or be built to include recreation options like a basketball court. Working with the public is a necessity in Millbrae, as residents are historically tough on tax proposals.

Thursdays special meeting of the San Mateo Union High School District Board of Trustees to interview candidates to ll a vacant board seat will now begin at 4:30 p.m. in conference room A at the District Ofce, 650 N. Delaware St. in San Mateo. The meeting originally was set to begin at 5:30 p.m. The public is welcome.

Prosecutors Scott McKibbin say in October he convinced the 16-year-old he met online to y from Vancouver to San Francisco International Airport and took him to a hotel. He was apprehended by Burlingame police and FBI agents when he brought the boy back to the airport to change his ight reservation. The boys parents had contacted authorities once they discovered him missing. In May, the boy and his family sued McKibbin in Santa Clara County Superior Court for negligence, assault and battery, emotional distress and sexual battery. In 1999, McKibbin was convicted of oral copulation on a minor in Santa Cruz County. He reportedly took a 14-year-old from San Jose to Santa Cruz, plied him with alcohol and took advantage of the boy. He is currently in compliance with sex offender registration requirements, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, although he is not currently listed in the Megans Law database. McKibbin is free from custody on $50,000 bail and returns to court Sept. 7 for a review conference.

CSU approves tuition hike


Deputy AG appointed as secretary of California EPA


LONG BEACH California State University on Tuesday approved another 12 percent increase in student tuition this fall to offset a deeper-than-expected cut in state funding. With a 13-2 vote, the CSU Board of Trustees passed the annual tuition hike of $588, which comes on top of a previously approved 10 percent increase for 20112012. CSU ofcials said the increase is needed to preserve educational quality and avoid large-scale enrollment cuts that would prevent tens of thousands of students from attending one of the systems 23 campuses. These are not easy choices, board Chairman Herbert Carter said. We dont take great delight in doing this. We do it because we think it is in the best interest of the young people of this state that this university be available to them. One third of the new revenue will be set aside for nancial aid. Annual tuition for in-state undergraduates will increase to $5,472, which doesnt include room, board or campus fees averaging $950. Annual tuition will increase $678 for credential program students and $720 for graduate students. Earlier in the day, the nance committee

They keep on taxing the students.The CSU claims to be an affordable,accessible and a quality education.But thats no longer the case.
Pati Guerra,Cal Poly Pomona student

of the board voted for the increase. The recently approved state budget reduces CSU funding by $650 million, or more than 20 percent. The system stands to lose another $100 million if the state generates less revenue than projected. The enormous reduction to our state funding has left us with no other choice if we are to maintain quality and access to the CSU, said Chancellor Charles Reed. About 50 students marched and chanted outside the board meeting in Long Beach, carrying signs that read Fund instruction, not corruption and No cuts, no fees. We are vehemently disappointed in what has happened today, said Gregory Washington, president of the California State Student Association. The sad truth is that California isnt prioritizing its higher education. Pati Guerra, 21, said shes tired of seeing CSU trustees deal with the budget crunch by pushing fees higher and higher. The Cal Poly Pomona student said one of her younger brothers had to drop out of school because of the increases, and another brother is looking into studying

out of state. They keep on taxing the students, she said. The CSU claims to be an affordable, accessible and a quality education. But thats no longer the case. Shortly after the tuition vote, the board approved a controversial $400,000 compensation package for Elliot Hirshman, the new president of San Diego State University. Thats $100,000 more than that of his predecessor Stephen Weber. In a letter to the board chairman, Gov. Jerry Brown criticized the move, questioning whether Hirshman should be paid twice as much as the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. I fear your approach to compensation is setting a pattern for public service that we cannot afford, Brown wrote. CSU ofcials defended the move, saying the university needs to provide competitive compensation to recruit and retain top administrators. Carter acknowledged the governors concerns and said the board would create a task force to review CSUs policies on selecting and paying administrators.

SACRAMENTO Gov. Jerry Brown has appointed Matt Rodriquez, the states chief deputy attorney general, as secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency. Brown made the announcement Tuesday. Rodriquez, who is 58, has represented the attorney generals ofce and state clients such as the California Coastal Commission, State Lands Commission and the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission. Rodriquez joined the Department of Justice in 1987 and became a chief deputy attorney general under Brown, who served as attorney general before running for governor. Rodriquez, a Democrat, also worked in Jerry Brown the governors ofce during Browns previous administration, from 1981 to 1983. If conrmed by the Senate, Rodriquez would replace Linda Adams, who was former Gov. Arnold Schwarzeneggers lead negotiator on Californias landmark global warming law, AB32. The annual pay is $175,000.

Talks continue on splitting state

By Jacob Adelman

Visit our website:


LOS ANGELES Elected ofcials in Riverside County endorsed a proposal Tuesday to discuss cleaving California in two, but with a catch: No public funds can be spent on the budding secessionist movement. Staffers for Jeff Stone, the Riverside County supervisor who dreamed up the idea for what hes calling South California, said proponents will turn to private donors and possibly sympathetic city councils with cash to spare to sponsor work toward the scheme. After the meeting, we were ooded with people wanting to volunteer and help, Stones chief of staff Verne Lauritzen said. But the lack of nancial support from the county is bound to make what was already a longshot proposal even less likely to gain traction.

Its not clear how this would work out in practice, said University of California, Riverside political science professor Shaun Bowler. Stones largely agricultural district of desert plains and boulder-studded hills saw rapid population growth during the last decades housing boom, and he wants 13 mostly conservative California counties to break away to create a 51st state. The Republican supervisors formal motion, which Riverside Countys board passed 4-0 with one absence after adding the no-public-funds caveat, calls for ofcials from the 13 counties to come together and discuss the idea. Stone has called California too big to govern and chastised state lawmakers in Sacramento for raiding local government coffers to support what he characterized as runaway spending. I have come to the conclusion ... that the political priorities of Southern California

and Northern California are completely different, Stone wrote in his motion. Stones version of South California would encompass coastal Orange and San Diego counties, and more sparsely populated, inland areas such as Fresno, Imperial, Inyo, Kern, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Mono, Riverside, San Bernardino and Tulare counties. It would have a part-time Legislature and no term limits. But even if those counties do decide to join under Stones South California banner, they would face numerous hurdles, such as the U.S. Constitutions requirement that says no new state be formed without the consent of Congress and the state Legislature. Federal lawmakers would be especially unlikely to sign off on a new state because it would dilute their own power by bringing a fresh pair of South California Senators into the mix, said University of Southern California constitutional law professor David B. Cruz.

In essence, McConnells proposal would greatly enhance Obamas authority to avoid a default, while also virtually absolving Republicans of responsibility if one occurred. At the same time, it would allow Republican lawmakers to avoid having Mitch to support an increase in the McConnell debt limit, something many of them nd odious. Republicans will choose a path that actually reects the will of the people, which is to do the responsible thing and ensure the government doesnt default on its obligations, McConnell said in a speech on the Senate oor. He also excoriated the administration for seeking tax increases along with spending cuts as part of an agreement to raise the debt limit. His plan drew criticism from GOP presidential contender Newt Gingrich, who quickly tweeted it was an irresponsible surrender to big government, big decits and continued overspending. There was no immediate response to the GOP proposal from the White House, where Obama hosted his third meeting in as many days with congressional leaders struggling to avert a nancial crisis. The talks have revolved around attempts to meet Republican demands for decit cuts at least as large as any increase in the debt limit. Negotiators have grown testy in recent days as Obama and Democrats pushed for higher tax revenue as part of the deal, a line Republicans say they will not cross. It was unclear whether McConnells proposal could show the White House and congressional leaders of both parties a way out of a deadlock that Obama and others said threatened calamitous results for an economy still struggling to recover from the worst recession in decades. It would obligate Obama to outline deep spending cuts, something Republicans have been trying to force him to do for months without much success.

Betty Ford remembered at bipartisan memorial
PALM DESERT First ladies, past and present, and others who called the White House home remembered Betty Ford on Tuesday, not just for her decades-long work against substance abuse but for contributing to a political era when friendship among lawmakers helped them govern. Ford, who died at the age of 93 on Friday, had mapped out plans for the ceremony well in advance, including who would deliver her eulogies. A second funeral will be held Thursday in Grand Rapids, Mich., where Gerald Ford was buried at his presidential museum. Former rst lady Barbara Bush was expected to attend that event. California Highway Patrol motorcycles and squad cars escorted Fords hearse and her family members to Tuesdays service in four black sedans and six SUVS. Other mourners arrived later by the busload, after the family was given private time inside the church.

WASHINGTON With compromise talks at a vituperative standstill, Senate Republicans unexpectedly offered Tuesday to hand President Barack Obama new powers to avert a rst-ever government default threatened for Aug. 2. Under a proposal outlined by Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Obama could request increases of up to $2.5 trillion in the governments borrowing authority in three separate installments over the next year, as long as he simultaneously proposed spending cuts of greater size. The debt limit increases would take effect unless blocked by Congress under special rules that would require speedy action and even then Obama could exercise his authority to veto such legislation. Signicantly, the presidents spending cuts would be debated under normal procedures, with no guarantee they ever come to a nal vote.

Congressional showdown over light bulbs?

By Jim Abrams

Creator of Brady Bunch, Gilligans Island dies

LOS ANGELES Sherwood Schwartz, writer-creator of two of the best-remembered TV series of the 1960s and 1970s, Gilligans Island and The Brady Bunch, has died at age 94. Great niece Robin Randall said Schwartz died at 4 a.m. Tuesday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was being treated for an intestinal infection and underwent several surgeries. His wife, Mildred, and children had been at his side. Sherwood Schwartz and his brother, Al, started as a writing team in TVs famed 1950s golden age, said Douglas Schwartz, the late Al Schwartzs son. They helped shape television in its early days, Douglas Schwartz said. Sherwood is an American classic, creating Brady Bunch and Gilligans Island, iconic shows that are still popular today. He continued to produce all the way up into his 90s.

WASHINGTON How many government bureaucrats does it take to screw in a light bulb? A lot of House Republicans think the answer should be none. They say the government should just stay out of it. To them, those newfangled curly uorescent light bulbs are the last straw, another example of an overreaching government thats forcing people to buy health insurance, prodding them to get more fuel-efcient cars and sticking its nose into too many places it doesnt belong. For most Democrats, its an exasperating debate that, just like the old incandescent bulbs being crowded out of the market, produces more heat than light.

Republicans in control of the House moved toward a vote late Tuesday on legislation that would seek to overturn light bulb energy-efciency standards and keep the marketplace clear for the cheap, energy-wasting bulbs that have changed little since Thomas Edison invented them in 1879. The standards in question do not specically ban the old bulbs but require a higher level of efciency than the classics can produce, essentially nudging them off store shelves over the next few years. Four of Edisons descendants said the great inventor would be mortied to see politicians trying to get the nation to hang on to an outdated technology when better bulbs are available. The standards have not been particularly contentious before now. They were crafted in 2007 with Republican participation and signed into law

by President George W. Bush. People seem to like the new choices and the energy savings they bring, polling nds. But now they have become a symbol of a much larger divide in Washington over the size and reach of government itself. The new bulbs suggest to some conservatives that big government is running amok. Now the government wants to tell consumers what type of light bulb they use to read, cook, watch television or light their garage, said Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas. Im not opposed to the squiggly tailed CFLs, said Rep. Joe Barton, R Texas, a driving force behind the effort to save the old incandescents and sponsor of the bill to overturn the standards. But making the old bulbs go away seems to me to be overkill by the federal government.

Herniated Disc? Severe Back/Neck Pain? Sciatica?

Spinal Decompression may be your answer to minimizing your chronic pain and restoring better motion and function back to your spine.
At Crossroads Health Center, your Satisfaction is Guaranteed. Let us help you get the quality of life back that you deserve.
y name is Dr. Thomas Ferrigno D.C., owner of Crossroads Health Center in Campbell and San Mateo. I understand what it feels like to live with chronic back pain. Due to several auto accidents and sports injuries, I have personally suffered from multiple disc herniations in both my neck and lower back and understand rsthand the severe pain and disability that comes with these types of injuries to the point where I was forced to sell all 3 of my practices. I did not want to have spinal surgery due to the high risk; instead I wanted a non-surgical non-invasive therapy that would help me manage my condition. That is when I turned to Spinal Decompression, not as a doctor, but as a patient and it completely changed my life. Within a few months my pain went from severe to mild and I was able to return back to my activities of golf, weight lifting and spending quality time with my family. It has been my mission ever since to share this great new technology with as many people as possible. While non-surgical spinal decompression is a rather new treatment, theres plenty of research to back up its claims. Give us a call and we will send you the studies or visit my website at www.BayAreaBackPain.Com. However its the results we see every day in our ofce that get us so excited about this new non-invasive treatment. Read what a few of our patients are saying. My severe lower back and sciatica pain have been reduced signicantly since receiving spinal decompression therapy. I am now able to walk, golf and do things without pain that I havent been able to do for years. Thank you, Dr. Ferrigno C.M. Allard During the 1 1/2 years of having constant daily lower back pain and spasms, I took anti-inammatory and pain medication, but nothing helped lessen the pain. Physical therapy didnt help. When an MRI showed that I had two degenerative discs, I went through a series of lumbar epidural injections. The rst one helped a tiny bit, but the others didnt do a thing for my pain. The only thing that made the pain and spasms go away was Spinal Decompression treatments at Crossroads Health Center. Four years later and I am still pain-free! Lisa K..

A remarkable example of sport

here were as many things wrong with Sundays soccer match between the women of the United States and Brazil as there were things right. But at the end, the right result xed all the wrongs and emboldened a battle-tested team of top athletes. The end was a win in penalty kicks after forward Abby Wambach squared off a header into the goal from a perfect delivery off the foot of midelder Megan Rapinoe for a stoppage time, extra time equalizer. That header came in the stoppage time created by the boorish fake injury by Brazils Erika to waste what was left of the 2-1 lead. That fake injury was on top of incredibly poor ofciating that made it seem as if the x was in. To overcome such adversity to top an incredibly skilled team of players led by Marta, hands-down the best womens player in the game, was nothing short of remarkable and inspiring. In 1999, the world was riveted by the U.S. women defeating China in the nals and the

The action has been nothing short of remarkable. If the games leading up to Sundays U.S. victory couldnt catch the attention of our nation, then the amazing comeback surely should. The games have provided riveting action and story lines. These women usually play under the radar for many in our nation obsessed with baseball, football and other mens sports. But every now and then, they take center stage. As they should. These women dont have multi-million dollar contracts. They play for the love of the game, for their country, for each other and to inspire and connect with all of us. This tournament has presented a window into the purest form of sport at its nest. And it is something we should watch and enjoy. The nal is Sunday.

Redwood City/Bay destruction plans
Editor, As somebody who used to work at Pacific Shores, I can tell you that the Cargill site is a bad place to put homes, schools and seniors. Seaport Boulevard is lined with giant piles of metal and cement which are loaded onto ships at the port. All of this activity generates dust and noise which would impact the people in the housing that Cargill wants to build. Many Pacific Shores workers complain when their parked cars are coated with dust from the industrial activity next door. Safety is also a major concern as some of these companies have had major fires with big plumes of toxic smoke. There have been at least two incidents of fires (Sims in 2007 and Granite Rock a few months ago) in just the past five years alone. Silicon Valley needs to be able to ship materials. We need metal recycling, cement and other building materials. Without such industries we would have a hard time building our cities. Currently, these port industries are far from housing. If housing is built next door to these industries, then the residents will be exposed to dust and other hazards. Thus, they will start to demand to close down the industries. Just look at Cupertino where residents are trying to shut down a 100-year-old cement plant. This problem is avoidable. Do not put housing next to heavy industry.

A continuing effort
Editor, The article about the eight-year effort of San Mateo High School students to create a new sign for the school (Years in the making, a new sign for SMHS in the July 4 edition of The Daily Journal) is commendable. I would challenge students to repair the loss of the bronze plaques listing those students who died in World War I and World War II. These plaques were on the wall as you entered the building. In rebuilding the school these lists disappeared. Also, students working to redo those plaques could create plaques of those San Mateo High School students who have died in subsequent wars. Students attending the school now should be aware of the costs paid to preserve our freedoms.

Credit where credit is due

Editor, Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, letter writer Keith De Filippis (Punishing the rich in the July 6 edition of The Daily Journal) believes the Republican mantra that tax benets for the rich will create jobs. That didnt work under Bush, whose tax reductions and unnecessary wars ate up the surplus he inherited from President Clinton, while jobs were lost. Clinton, however, created millions of jobs without special tax benets for

those better off than the rest of us. Why would a few percentage points reduction of the tax rate for net taxable income over a certain limit, whether $250K, $500K or higher, create jobs? Quite the opposite. The top earners are CEOs, hedge fund managers and other Wall Street employees, and people living off their investments hardly people who would care about job creation. Instead, they are more likely to lay people off, and spend money and invest abroad, which doesnt help our economy. On the other hand, extra tax income enables the government to reduce the decit and fund larger projects, which again will stimulate the economy, create jobs and increase the tax base. Thats how it works, contrary to the old Republican myth. Expecting those better off, who can afford it, to carry their share of the social burden, is not punishment, just a fair surcharge for those who benet the most from a well-organized society, with a population with purchasing power that ultimately will benet the owners of the means of production, distribution and exchange. Even though the Bush tax reductions have been extended, unpatriotic Republicans keep chanting where are the jobs? Nevertheless, against compact resistance from the GOP, president Obama has been able to create new jobs. How about some old-fashioned honesty and credit where credit is due?

ho doesnt want to pay less at the pump? Although the role of government intervention in gas prices can be debated, no one wants to pay nearly $4 a gallon for gas. President Barack Obama and the International Energy Agency are trying to lower the high price of gas, but their decision to release oil reserves creates a danger that the bar for accessing the reserve supply will become too low. The president recently joined with the International Energy Agency and several other European and Asian countries to release a total of 60 million barrels. Republicans and OPEC have expressed outrage with the decision and many have questioned the timing of the release. The Republicans argue that Obama tapped the reserves only as a political move to gain popularity. OPEC claims that there was no reason for the release as the market currently has more than enough supply. But, for American consumers, the timing couldnt be better. More people travel by car in the summer, driving gasoline prices higher. Though the oil reserves are supposed to be accessed only in times of emergency, neither the United States nor the International Energy Agency has defined exactly what an emergency is. Instead of criticizing President Obama for lowering gas prices for American consumers, we should ask the International Energy Agency to redefine the term emergency, so there are fewer disputes over such a release in the future.

he deadline for raising the U.S. debt ceiling is approaching. The Treasury says it will be unable to meet all its obligations after Aug. 2. Legislators must agree some days before that to allow a law to be written and passed. The consequences of failing to raise the ceiling would be grave. Republicans and Democrats should curb their ambitions for this settlement, make a deal that gives something to both sides and postpone broader negotiations until later. The main sticking-point up to now has been the Republicans refusal to raise taxes. This is an indefensible position. However, there are signs of movement. Influential GOP figures have begun to suggest that they are open to raising modest additional revenues, so long as tax rates do not rise. The White House has such a plan. Looking farther ahead, revenues and spending must both be on the table. It would be marvelous if a balanced, mediumterm plan for fiscal consolidation could emerge from the talks but this looks unlikely, and the consequences of failing to agree are too serious to contemplate. A temporary pact with modest spending cuts and revenue increases could pacify aggrieved supporters on both sides without doing much harm to the weak recovery no triumph, but better than failing to avoid default. A grand bargain on fiscal policy comprehensive reform of taxes and entitlements cannot be postponed for ever. But the debt-ceiling debate is the wrong context for that discussion. Time is too short and the risks are just too high.

the month. Earlier Tuesday, minutes from the Federal Reserves last meeting on June 21-22 were released. In those minutes, several Fed ofcials said that the government would have to consider new monetary policy to stimulate the economy, especially if growth remains too slow to reduce the unemployment rate. That raised hopes that more economic stimulus might be on the way. The Dow rose about 60 points after the minutes were released, but retreated not long after. Stocks bounced between small gains and losses for most of the day amid worries that Italy would need help managing its debts. A successful auction of new Italian government bonds and a promise to fast-track that countrys austerity measures helped ease those fears. The news sent Milans main stock index up 1.2 percent. A default by Italy, the thirdlargest economy in Europe, would cause far more damage to the global nancial system than one by Greece, which is a much smaller economy. Investors also felt some relief after a meeting of 17 European nance ministers Monday resulted in a statement that implied they were open to buying distressed Greek bonds.

NEW YORK Hope that the Federal Reserve might consider more economic stimulus wasnt enough to keep bad news about Ireland from sinking stocks. Irelands government bonds were downgraded by ratings agency Moodys to junk status shortly before U.S. markets closed Tuesday, sending stocks sharply lower and erasing the days gains. Ireland joins Greece and Portugal, whose debt was also recently graded as junk. The move puts Ireland back on the list of heavily-indebted European countries in danger of default. The country has already received a nancial rescue package from other countries. If a European country fails to pay its debts, it could cause widespread disruptions in nancial markets and lead to a slowdown in lending.

Oil imports drove May trade deficit up

By Martin Crutsinger

WASHINGTON The U.S. trade decit surged in May to the highest level in more than two and a half years, driven wider by a big increase in oil imports and a decline in exports. The Commerce Department said Tuesday that the decit increased 15.1 percent to $50.2 billion in May. Thats the largest imbalance since October 2008. Exports declined 0.5 percent to $174.9 billion. Imports rose 2.6 percent to $225.1 billion. Oil prices have fallen since May, so the effect of higher prices should ease some in the coming months. The decit is running at an annual rate of $563.2 billion. Thats 12.6 percent higher than the 2010 imbalance. A higher trade decit subtracts from overall economic growth because it means consumers are purchasing more foreign-made goods and fewer products made by U.S. workers. Analysts said the wider decit in May means that the economy probably grew at an even slower pace in the April-June quarter than they had previously forecast. Paul

Dales, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics, said he was now looking for economic growth of around 2 percent in the second quarter. Thats roughly the same pace as the rst three months of the year. The decit with China jumped to $25 billion, the largest monthly gap since November. The decit with Japan fell 26.4 percent to $2.6 billion. Japanese imports shrank further because of supply-chain disruptions caused by the March earthquake and tsunami. Economists say Japan is starting to rebound from the crisis and a parts shortage that followed those disasters is beginning to dissipate. As a result, Japans factories should increase shipments to the United States over the next few months. As the supply chain disruptions continue to unwind, we expect imports from Japan over the next few months to recover and for the overall trade decit to modestly widen later this year before leveling off in 2012, said Troy Davig, an economist with Barclays Capital. Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets, noted that while total imports from Japan declined, imports of Murdoch and News Corporation to withdraw their bid for BSkyB, it read. The resolution is nonbinding but is likely to be seen as a powerful expression of united opposition to any substantial expansion of Murdochs holdings.

Japanese auto parts rose. She said that indicates that Japanese auto plants were starting to resume more normal operations and supply U.S. factories with critical component parts. American companies depend on component parts supplied from Japan. The supplychain disruptions have slowed production at U.S. factories, particularly among those companies that make autos and electronics. Manufacturing has been one of the strongest areas of the U.S. economy in the two years since the recession ofcially ended. Sales in foreign markets have been helped by increased demand and a weaker dollar, which makes U.S. goods cheaper overseas and imported goods more expensive. Last year, the U.S. decit with China hit $273 billion. Its the largest decit the United States has ever had with any country. The huge trade gap between the two countries has prompted many companies and members of Congress to criticize China for manipulating its current to gain a trade advantage. U.S. manufacturers contend that China is keeping its currency undervalued against the dollar by as much as 40 percent.

UK government turns against Murdoch Sky TV bid
LONDON Rupert Murdochs cozy relationship with the British power structure came to an abrupt end Tuesday after Prime Minister David Cameron joined the opposition in calling for the media magnate to withdraw his bid for control of a lucrative satellite broadcaster. Camerons turnabout means all three major political parties are now lined up against Murdoch in his bid for the BSkyB gold mine, which enjoys prots that dwarf revenue from his dwindling British newspaper holdings. The news came in a stunning announcement from Camerons ofce indicating that the government would join the opposition in a parliamentary vote Wednesday urging Murdoch who until recently kept British politicians in his hip pocket to withdraw the bid The statement was a clear indication that Murdochs magic carpet ride is over, at least in Britain: This House believes that it is in the public interest for Rupert

Facebook teams with Time Warner to fight bullies

SAN FRANCISCO Facebook and Time Warner are ganging up on bullies to address a problem that torments millions of children and young adults. The partnership announced Tuesday calls for Facebook and Time Warner to use their clout to raise awareness about bullying and encourage more people to report the abuses when they see them. Facebooks participation reects a growing recognition that its online social network consisting of more than 750 million people has become an outlet for harassment as well as friendship. We believe that by working together with parents and teachers, we can teach young people to speak up and stop bullying, said Sheryl Sandberg, Facebooks chief operating ofcer. The anti-bullying campaign will be waged on the Internet, on TV and radio and several major U.S. magazines. Its being billed as Stop Bullying: Speak Up, a theme that Time Warners Cartoon Network has been trumpeting since last year.

We are also thankful for Nolan Ryan, Josh Hamilton, the Texas Rangers, the Rangers fans, and all baseball fans,

which have showed such concern and compassion, Jenny Stone wrote in her rst public comments.

PHOENIX Pitching, speed and a little bit of power. The National League is back on top in the All-Star game, using the same formula that worked during its dominating run in the 1970s and 80s. Prince Fielder hit a three-run homer and Roy Halladay and his relief combined on a six-hitter to lead the NL over the AL 5-1 Tuesday night, giving the senior circuit its rst two-game winning streak since the mid-1990s. The NL claimed home-eld advantage in the World Series, its only blemish being a home run by Adrian Gonzalez off Cliff Lee. With several big names as no-shows at Chase Field, the AL lost more than the game. Boston right-hander Josh Beckett warmed up, then bowed out with a sore knee. Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera left after hurting his side. Even before they were hurt, many stars were missing. Justin Verlander, Felix Hernandez and many other aces started Sunday and were ineligible, Chipper Jones and Alex Rodriguez were among those on the disabled list and

Dahlkemper on fast track All eyes on U.S Team

By Julio Lara

Like every young female soccer player in the country, former Sacred Heart Prep superstar and Daily Journal Girls Soccer Player of the Year Abby Dahlkemper has been glued to her television set or computer taking in the 2011 Womens World Cup in Germany. But the difference between everyone else and Dahlkemper is that donning the red, white and blue one day and representing the United States is an actual possibility for her. Unless youve been living under a rock, you know all about Dahlkemper and her stellar career as a Gator. In four seasons at SHP, Dahlkemper has been at the forefront of one of

the best girls soccer programs in the Central Coast Section. Yet, what might have been lost to those out of loop, is Dahlkempers rise up the United States soccer ranks. Recently, she received a callup to the Under-20 national team as a defender she is one the youngest members on that team that will report to Los Angeles July 23. They just announced the location of the U20 World Cup. Its in Uzbekistan, Dahlkemper said, This is the last camp before the college season starts. So this is early preparation. These are pretty important camps. Were excited about that (and) these camps that youre invited to are super important to


MOENCHENGLADBACH, Germany The Americans feel just ne, thank you, not tired a bit. The high they were on after that epic Brazil game? Thats so yesterday. The U.S. women are one game away from reaching their rst World Abby Wambach Cup nal since 1999 the last time they won soccers biggest prize and the only thing on their minds now is beating France. Losing is not an option, Abby Wambach

said Tuesday. We want to win this thing, and France is standing in our way right now. The Americans are the top-ranked team in the world and defending Olympic gold medalists, yet they were almost afterthoughts when the tournament began two weeks ago. Twotime defending champion Germany was considered the heavy favorite, sure to get a boost playing on home soil. Then there was Brazil, runner-up at the last three major tournaments and led by Marta, FIFAs player of the year ve years running. And the U.S.? They had to win a playoff with Italy just to get here, and theyd been uncharacteristically inconsistent with three losses in a ve-month span.

Jose Joaquin Rojas of Spain was third. The top three completed the stage in 3 hours, 31 minutes, 21 seconds. Cavendish is one of the most outspoken cyclists, his comments sometimes scathing. But after beating Greipel to win last Fridays seventh stage in Chateauroux in much the same way Greipel beat him Tuesday with a late sprint the two cleared the air. We had a chat after the Chateauroux stage and he said I have a big respect for your sprint Greipel said. I think he has shown he is one of the fastest sprinters on earth. Cavendish repaid the compliment, giving credit where it was due. Now Im happy for him. Hes come to the Tour de France and hes won, Cavendish said. I feel I made a mistake, but Greipel beat me so theres not an excuse I can say. Cavendish thinks he should have timed his run better. I didnt commit early enough, I didnt kick, he said. I kind of rolled round the last corner. ... Greipel just came past me and beat me. Greipel comes across as mild and placid, so much so that his team told him to be more aggressive. The message seems to be sinking in. When I step off my bike Im a really, really nice guy, Greipel said. Of course, I have to learn to be a bit more aggressive on the bike. ... Actually, for the sprint you need this. Greipel punched the air in delight as he crossed the line. On the podium, he looked tearful as he celebrated. Its the moment Ive been waiting for all year, he said. Its the most beautiful race in the world and the most famous. To win here is sensational. He dedicated his ride to teammate Jurgen Van Den Broeck, who was hurt in Sundays crash-lled stage and withdrew along with such other injured riders as Kazakh star Alexandre Vinokourov and American rider David Zabriskie.


Greipel lets bike do talking


CARMAUX, France After all the feuding and hard words, Andre Greipel nally got what he wanted and it had nothing to do with talk: a winning ride in the Tour de France. The German sprinter beat Mark Cavendish his former teammate and sometimes adversary by the length of a wheel Tuesday to capture the 10th stage of a three-week race that is soon to leave the atlands for the perilous climbs of the Pyrenees. Thomas Voeckler of France kept the yellow jersey after nestling safely in the main pack for most of the day. Defending champion Alberto Contador did much the same, and the Spaniard had even more reason to be careful after hurting his right knee during crashes in the fth and ninth stages. At the beginning of the stage, I wasnt sure what to think, said Contador, a three-time champion. But as the stage progressed my knee was feeling less sore. Contador, the best climber in the world, trails main rivals Cadel Evans of Australia and Andy Schleck of Luxembourg by 1:41 and 1:30 entering Wednesdays at run. Tuesdays 98-mile trip from Aurillac to Carmaux ended with Cavendish applying brutal acceleration and seemingly headed toward his third stage victory in this Tour. Instead, Greipel got on his wheel and surged ahead in the last 20 yards, a winning leg in cyclings showpiece race at last secure. Greipel and Cavendish clashed last year while on the HTC-Highroad team. Greipel, who now rides for Omega Pharma-Lotto team, was in a conciliatory mood. I have a lot of respect for Cavendish he was won 17 stages of the Tour de France. Now I have one, Greipel said. He was not always really friendly with his comments (about) me. This is not my level. I just try to show on the bike what I am able to do. I always said to my teammates that we need to believe in our race and do our own things.


Roger Clemens arrives for the rst day of his perjury trial,at the federal courthouse in Washington

Clemensjury selected

WASHINGTON An overwhelmingly female jury with little interest in baseball will decide whether former pitching star Roger Clemens lied to Congress when he said he never used performance-enhancing drugs. The jurors who took their seats Tuesday include a woman whose cousin, former outelder Al Bumbry, was a coach for the Boston Red Sox when Clemens played for the team. Another woman on the jury said she believes Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was done wrong in his criminal conviction in connection with dogghting. The jury took shape after four days of questioning by U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton and lawyers for both sides. Clemens defense team said the seven-time Cy Young Award winner will begin his defense by questioning the propriety of lawmakers investigation into whether Clemens used performance-enhancing drugs. Opening arguments are scheduled for Wednesday. Both sides seemed to want to start with a blank slate and sought jurors who dont have many preconceived notions about the case or Clemens himself. When the Eagles fan said

during questioning that she didnt know a thing about baseball, Clemens attorney Rusty Hardin responded, Thats a plus. The jury includes a 22-year-old aspiring fashion designer who works two part-time jobs and cares for her young daughter and an older woman who said her three-times-a-week dialysis treatments will not keep her from attending the trial. Another juror is a yoga teacher and lawyer who said she nds U.S. drug laws a bit heavy-handed. The two sides threw out the maximum number of 20 people before the jury of 10 women and two men along with four alternates were seated. The jurors themselves were not told who among them are alternates but they were told to avoid news and sports programs. To keep the panel from encountering the dozens of journalists at the courthouse, the judge told them they will meet off site each daily, be bused into a back entrance and use nonpublic corridors. They will be served breakfast and lunch in what was once a judges chambers so they dont have to use the cafeteria where reporters, attorneys and Clemens himself take their meals.

More NFL questions


NEW YORK Think back four months to that disappointing day in March when the NFL lockout began. The general opinion was the owners and players would reach a new labor agreement long before training camps opened. They had plenty of time and about 9 billion reasons to get it done. Well, some training camps open at the end of next week, and the two sides have not yet gotten it done. Yes, they are closer than ever, with several key issues particularly how to split more than $9 billion in revenues just about settled. But there is serious doubt that a disruption to the preseason can be avoided. While the regular season still appears safe, the situation isnt as simple as shaking hands and going back to business as usual, even assuming owners and players patched everything up when face-to-face talks resume Wednesday an unlikely scenario.

Yet without a collective bargaining agreement in place soon, many teams will need to delay training camp. The New York Giants and Jets and Baltimore Ravens already have canceled out-of-town camps and will do all their preseason work at their home facilities, at a signicant cost to the communities where they normally would have gone. The Pro Football Hall of Fame inductions will go on as scheduled on Aug. 6. But the game the following day between the St. Louis Rams and Chicago Bears is in jeopardy, which certainly would put a damper on the festivities. And with owners and players haggling over the rookie wage scale, guidelines for free agency and how benets for retired players will be funded, the next few days are critical. Should the differences remain strong and prevent a timely deal, the rst full weekend of preseason games could be canceled at a cost upward of $60 million.


Vaughns secret gives him a hint of how tough it must be for a homosexual athlete to hide his orientation in a locker room. If Im not gay and I am afraid to mention it, I can only imagine what an athlete must be going through if he is gay, Irvin said. I would like to see players come forward and be happy with who they are. Hopefully, as we move forward, well get to a place where theres no way its even considered; it just is what it is and everybody can do what they do. Thats the ultimate goal. Irvin said he believes the fast life hes led was to accentuate his heterosexuality. He said he wanted everyone in the locker room to see him have the most women and the nicest car so that everybody says, Michaels the man. Maybe some of the issues Ive had with so many women just bringing women around so everybody can see maybe thats residual of the fear I had that, if my brother is wearing ladies clothes, am I going to be doing that? Is it genetic? Irvin said.

Noah to play for Team France

The person spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss Noahs plans.

TIANJIN, China Kevin Durant isnt ruling out playing basketball abroad next season if the NBA lockout isnt resolved. The Oklahoma City Thunder forward said Tuesday during a promotional tour in China that he thinks more players will follow Deron Williams example and play overseas if the NBA season is disrupted. Williams has said he will play for Besiktas in Turkey if the lockout remains.

Well see, I would like to try something new, Durant said. But of course, my rst option is playing in the NBA. So now I want to see how this lockout goes. He said hes still hopeful that a new collective bargaining agreement will be reached. If not, I will make a decision on where I am going to play basketball, said Durant, who added hes in no hurry to make a decision. I am going to take it slow, everybodys going to wait to see how this plays out. D-Will, you know, he

made his decision quick and I am sure you are going to see a lot of guys kind of follow his footsteps. So, hes very brave to be the rst guy to do it. He added it is tough to see Yao Ming retire, and the 7-foot-6 Houston Rockets center deserves to be in the basketball Hall of Fame. Durant said it has been an honor to play Yao, who is expected to announce July 20 that hes retiring from the NBA after nine seasons because of leg and foot injuries.

of pitching, which has become resurgent as the Steroids Era has receded. Scoring in the rst half of this season dropped to its lowest level in 19 years and the major league batting average shrunk to its smallest midseason figure since 1985. The home runs were the rst in the All-Star game since J.D. Drew connected at Yankee Stadium three years ago. The AL nished with six hits for the second straight year. Given the temperature outside, the theme song for this game could have been the Buster Poindexter song Hot Hot Hot. And except for Lee, thats what the NL pitching was. San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy became a winner in his second All-Star try, following a defeat in 1999, and gave Giants closer Wilson, the 10th NL pitcher, got two outs for the save. Texas C.J. Wilson, the fourth AL pitcher, took the loss for the team managed by the Rangers Ron Washington. Despite the weather outside 99 degrees at gametime two separate groups opposed to Arizonas controversial immigration law protested outside of Chase Field before the game.

It wasnt just at SHP, but her club team, the MVLA Avalanche. Her play caught the attention of the U-20 national team decision makers, who invited her to join the team as they made a trip to La Manga, Spain. Her callup came in the middle of SHPs run through the CCS playoffs as the No. 3 seed in Division III. My senior year was probably one of the funnest years (Ive had), Dahlkemper said. I couldnt play my last senior year game which we ended up losing and that was kind of a bummer. But I couldnt miss an

They will have to be because, much like Brazil, France has creativity and air.

Her control of the mideld is masterful, the driving force behind Frances quick, uid offense. Les Bleues often appear seamless no surprise considering 10 of the 21 players are teammates at Olympique Lyonnais, which won this years womens Champions League nal. For us, its very important to be patient, Sundhage said. We need to pick up the rhythm and dictate the tempo, and we need the mideld to get more involved. I dont want to make it a stretch game. Or make it a (physical) ght. But France has struggled against bigger, more physical teams in the past, and they dont come much stronger than the Americans. Its true weve had one additional day of rest, French coach Bruno Bini said. I think its quite fair because the American team is in better shape. While the Americans have their quickest turnaround of the tournament, getting just two days rest between games, France hasnt played since Saturday. But Les Bleues had an emotional doozy, too, beating England 4-3 on penalties after scoring in the 88th minute to tie it 1-1. equally huge opportunity for Dahlkemper. For her, the choice was pretty simple. One, I denitely clicked better with the UCLA girls, she said. I had a better experience on my visit there, which was pretty important to me. I felt like I really connected with the coaches better at UCLA as well. The program is super promising this year, I just like to be a part of something that. Were going through this together, 11 freshman that make it through four years. Its kind of cool to see how we can change the program. Dahlkemper goes into the program as arguably the best freshman defender in the country. Its a bit of

Derek Jeter wanted a break. In all, 16 of 84 All-Stars were dropped. Tyler Clippard got the win despite allowing a single to Adrian Beltre, his only batter. Relievers Clayton Kershaw, Jair Jurrjens, Craig Kimbrel, Jonny Venters, Heath Bell, Joel Hanrahan and Brian Wilson combined to keep the NL ahead. Fielder won the MVP award after becoming the rst Brewers player to homer in an All-Star game. The World Series edge could help him later, with Milwaukee and St. Louis tied for the Central lead at the break. The NL dashed around the bases and stole three bags, all in one inning. Bell showed some speed, too the reliever provided the image of the night, sprinting in from the bullpen in the eighth inning and tearing up the turf with a slide just short of the mound. In all, the Nationals have enjoyed their best run since taking three in a row from 1994-96 they had lost 12 straight games played to a decision before a 3-1 victory at Anaheim last year. Andre Ethier and Pablo Sandoval also drove in runs for the NL. Before a crowd of 47,994 that included Muhammad Ali, this was no desert classic except for fans

Rachel Buehler has started all but one game the last two years, and her bruising style of defense she isnt called the Buehldozer for nothing has been vital. But shes suspended for the seminal after getting a red card for taking down Marta in the box in the 65th minute Sunday.

As much as I loved high school, it was denitely hard (but) I know everyone knew I made the right decision. Its tough. You got to do what you got to do, take those opportunities and not take anything for granted. With the senior season over, it became time for Dahlkemper to choose where to play her college soccer. She choose UCLA, thus joining one of the most talented and deepest recruiting classes in school history.

Nothing we can do is going to bring him back. But the organization can take care of the family and see that everything is going in the right direction. Two nights after Stones death, Hamilton hit a game-winning, ninthinning home run for the Rangers, a release of sorts for a man who was once addicted to drugs and lives with an abundance of Christian faith. He was simply tossing the ball toward a fan who had a young boy with him. Just a random act of kindness turned tragic, Hamilton said. It just lets you know how quickly life can change, just in a blink of an eye, that quick. Stone was remembered during ceremonies in Brownwood on Sunday and Monday.

Wheres the beef? Michigan State to find out

By Jeff Karoub

DETROIT A small herd of cattle from Michigan State University was recently slaughtered with two goals: boosting the amount of locally produced food on campus and creating a system of tracking beef from the farm to the plate. Animal scientists at the East Lansing-based school are working on the state-funded projects starting with 10 steer and barcode tags on the beef that comes from them. The small-scale effort has large aims, according to one of the project leaders. Associate Professor Dan Buskirk said in addition to verifying whether the beef came from

Even if it has a little bit of value to consumer,it also adds incentive to producers to get involved in these programs.A lot of these things are things producers might be doing,but consumers have no way of knowing....Maybe it makes it more real if its grass-fed,grain-fed or organic.

a local source, shoppers eventually could use a smart phone or kiosk to nd out if it came from grass-fed, grain-fed or hormone-free cattle. Even if it has a little bit of value to consumer, it also adds incentive to producers to get involved in these programs, Buskirk said.

A lot of these things are things producers might be doing, but consumers have no way of knowing. ... Maybe it makes it more real if its grass-fed, grain-fed or organic. The cattle were killed and processed late last month at off-campus commercial facilities. The frozen packages with barcode labels

soon will make their way back to Michigan State and onto residence hall menus. Buskirk said the projects grew out of Michigans first-in-the-nation, mandatory livestock tracing program, which was adopted in 2007 to track the states cattle herds to battle bovine tuberculosis. All cattle in Michigan herds have radio-frequency identication tags attached to their ears to provide animal health ofcials a tool to trace individual animals back to where they were born. There was a group of us here on campus asking, How do we exploit those tags to add some additional value? he said. Helping Buskirk and his colleagues take the next step are Bradenton, Fla.-based

Survey: Diners frown on Books help you get to texting, tweeting at table know your food culture

NEW YORK When you pick up the menu, put down the cell phone. Thats the message from restaurant-goers in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, who told the most recent Zagat Survey that they think its rude to text, tweet, check e-mail or talk on cell phones during a meal. It may not matter. Tim Zagat, who founded the survey with his wife, Nina, said the presence and use of phones at the table is part of the changing culture of restaurants, like T-shirts instead of coats and ties. And while a few restaurants have rules against talking on cell phones, none regulate texting. Youre not going to tell a young person not to text at a meal, he said in a telephone interview. And if you do, youre likely to lose a client for life. Sitting with two friends at a cafe in the Chelsea neighborhood on Monday, Beau Frank agreed that its rude to use a cell phone at dinner though his was in front of him. It bothers me, but I would be the rst to admit that I do it, Frank said. I would never take a phone call, but I would answer a text. Of the 40,569 surveyors who rated restaurants for the 2011 Zagat guide to New York City restaurants, 64 percent said that texting, checking e-mail or talking on the phone is rude and inappropriate in a restaurant. In Los Angeles and San Francisco, 67 percent and 63 percent of surveyors agreed respectively. Another 32 percent of New Yorkers said the behavior is acceptable in moderation, 2 percent said it is perfectly acceptable and 2 percent had

no opinion. The New York City guide, released Wednesday, rates restaurants for food, decor, service and cost. It found that the sputtering economy continues to take a toll. The average cost of a meal dipped by a nickel this year, from $41.81 to $41.76. Zagat said the only other time the cost declined in New York was after the 2001 terrorist attacks. Also dropping was the number of restaurant meals surveyors ate. Out of all their lunches and dinners in a given week, the meals that were eaten at or ordered from restaurants fell from 53 percent in the 2010 survey to 52 percent in 2011. The drop in patrons means restaurants are less crowded. Just 23 percent of surveyors listed noise/crowds as the thing that irritates them most about restaurants, down from 33 percent two year ago. Zagat Survey began in 1979 as a guide to New York City restaurants and now rates airlines, restaurants, hotels, nightlife, shopping and other entertainment categories in cities around the world. The new edition of the agship New York restaurant guide lists 2,115 eateries. The ratings are based on average scores of survey participants who voted on each establishment. Gramercy Tavern repeated as the citys most popular restaurant. Part of Danny Meyers growing empire, Gramercy Tavern was No. 1 in 2010 and has been either No. 1 or No. 2 in the mostpopular category every year since 2000. Diners said the ower-lled restaurants ambiance, service and sophisticated new American cuisine justied the $112 average price tag.

If you think apple pie is the all-American food, think again. An inspiring collection of new books dips deep into the melting pot to serve up stories and recipes that trace the multi-ethnic and cultural origins of what our country eats. Jane Ziegelmans 97 Orchard offers an eminently readable history of ve families German, Irish, Italian and Eastern European all living in a tenement on New Yorks Lower East Side at the turn of the last century. The book is lled with fun facts that pickles were once considered a stimulant; that goose pastrami was bar food. But the books beauty lies in the insight and intelligence with which Ziegelman tells the story of real, live people who came to this country and brought their food with them. Using census records, shopping lists, recipes and other documents, she brings her characters to life, and illuminates how immigrant food such as hot dogs and pizza became American food. A must-read for anyone interested in food, ethnicity and culture. In Breaking Bread, chef and English professor Lynne Christy Anderson has collected stories about the power of food to recall a lost world for those who have left much behind. She leads us around Boston and its suburbs to a Lebanese family that cuts grape leaves at the nearby arboretum, a house painter from Cote dIvoire who makes a mean sh dish, a nurses aide who clings to the groundnut stew of her native Ghana.

Anderson also turns the pages over to her subjects, who offer advice (only talk to your husband when hes got a full stomach) and reminiscences (rum coke, and dancing always fueled cooking in Xotchil Gaarns Venezuela home) that informs and delights. Told with verve and voice, Joseph Dabneys The Food, Folklore and Art of Lowcountry Cooking offers an exhaustive (and sometimes exhausting) history of this Southern cuisine and the immigrants who inuenced it. More than 130 recipes for items like she-crab soup, chicken bog, and shad roe with grits are sprinkled lightly through text from locals, home cooks and well-known chefs in the coastal regions of South Carolina and Georgia. A thorough and informative look at this very specic Southern cuisine. Joan Allers Cider Beans, Wild Greens and Dandelion Jelly tackles the foods of southern Appalachia with credit to the native and immigrant cultures that spawned them. Cherokee Indians originally cultivated the area from East Tennessee across the northern parts of the Carolinas, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi, and were closely followed by the Spanish, African slaves, and Europeans from other American colonies. Primarily a cookbook, Cider Beans offers more than 100 recipes for items like Cherokee pepper pot soup made of beef bones and bell peppers; an African chicken-cabbage soup sweetened with Vidalias and tomato; German cabbage and meat pies called bierocks; and chocolate gravy from the Melungeouns, a tribal people possibly descended from Iberians who ed the inquisition.

Pack ingredients,let kids assemble lunches

By Alison Ladman

Kids love the chance to assemble their own lunches. Not the night before, mind you. Theyre quite happy to leave the packing of lunch to you. Were talking about when they eat it. Present them with a variety of agreeable ingredients, and the little ones have a blast assembling their own sandwiches, pizzas, fajitas and other kid-friendly creations. Its part of the reason those boxed lunches available at the grocer are so popular. But theres no reason you need to pay a premium for those, or be a slave to their questionable quality. When you assemble your own, you can use healthier ingredients you and your kids love. You also can include a wider variety of ingredients than the typical box includes, and have it assembled in little time. The rst step is to get a lunch box with multiple small compartments. Bento-style lunch boxes are popular and widely available online. But a collection of small plastic containers works just as well.

Then have your kids help choose what goes together and what goes in their boxes. And take the whole thing a little less seriously. Be creative with the combinations; its supposed to be fun. Weve started you off with some ideas for combinations, but let your imaginations go. Do-it yourself lunch boxes:

Pretzels Crunchy breadsticks or cracker sticks Hummus Assorted veggies cut into sticks Tzatziki (cucumber yogurt dip) Salad dressing Jam

Small corn or our tortillas Green and red bell pepper slices Shredded cheese Sliced chicken breast Guacamole Salsa

Cracker sandwiches
Graham crackers Whole-wheat saltines Peanut butter and jelly Ham, cheddar and apple slices Cream cheese, cucumber and deli turkey

Yogurt or cottage cheese Toasted walnuts or sliced almonds Sunower or pumpkin seeds Granola or dry cereal Sliced peaches or nectarines Sliced fresh berries

Crackers Small pitas or atbread (such as lavash or naan) Pizza sauce or salsa Shredded mozzarella Sliced pepperoni Cherry tomatoes, olives, or chopped peppers


Pack the ingredients for a fajita and let the kids assemble them.

Peanut butter and jelly cubes

Sometimes peanut butter and crackers or a piece of fruit just isnt enough for the kids after a long day of learning. To keep snacking interesting, try one of these simple recipes. The peanut butter and jelly cubes need time to set up, so be sure to start them well in advance. The blueberry blendies are a quick, healthy frozen beverage that appeals to both kids and adults; its sort of like a drinkable soft-serve ice cream. Sweet quesadillas are a fun treat for days when something warm and comforting is called for. All of the snacks are easy to change around to suit your kids favorite avors. Start to nish: 6 1/2 hours (1/2 hour active) Makes 32 cubes Six 1/4-ounce envelopes unavored gelatin, divided 4 cups grape juice, divided 1/2 cup honey, divided 1/2 cup cool water

1 cup boiling water 1 cup peanut butter 8-ounce package cream cheese, room temperature Spray a 9-by-13-inch pan with cooking spray, then line with plastic wrap. In a medium bowl, combine 4 of the envelopes of gelatin with 1 cup of grape juice. Let sit for 5 minutes. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the remaining 3 cups grape juice and 1/4 cup of the honey to a boil. Pour into the bowl with the gelatin and stir until the gelatin is dissolved. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and refrigerate until rm and set up, about 3 hours.

In a small bowl, combine the cool water with the remaining 2 envelopes of gelatin. Let sit for 5 minutes, then add the boiling water. Stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Set aside. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together the peanut butter, cream cheese and remaining 1/4 cup of honey until smooth. Slowly beat in the gelatin mixture. Pour and spread this mixture over the set up grape jelly in the pan. Refrigerate and allow to set up completely, about 3 hours. Using the plastic wrap to assist, remove the set up gelatin from the pan and peel off the plastic wrap. Cut into cubes. Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

for the companys employees in a program called Food for Us. The Pescadero farm workers also live in solar-heated homes on the property alongside Jacobs and Belin. Part of the farms sustainable aspect is making sure not to think of the workers as numbers, Jacobs said. It was at this same time that Jacobs and Belin were inspired to bring their farming experience beyond the countrys borders. In 1985, they took a vacation to Mexico to drive a friend to a workshop, and on the way back they visited some of the farms in Baja. We had an epiphany that we could do a Pescadero South, Jacobs said, and they presented a plan to the director of rural development in Los Cabos County. Belin said their experience working in Guatemala was what got them interested in doing something beyond agriculture. We saw an opportunity to create a model that was based on a business that would improve peoples livelihood and that would be sustainable by being protable, Jacobs said. The idea was to teach people to grow crops organically. The Del Cabo growers association started with eight families, Jacobs said, and some were skeptical of his ideas about farming without chemicals. But pesticides were expensive for them and the farmers didnt have anything to lose, Jacobs said. So they gave it a try. When Del Cabo began Jacobs said each family made about $3,000 a year and now they make about $30,000 a year. Del Cabo is now operated by the farmers in Baja, and they are responsible for their own prots. Jacobs said between 400 and 500 families are now part of Del Cabo, and the number is still growing. Today the enterprise that started as a family farm has what Jacobs called a life of its own. There are bigger dreams to continue making the entire organization healthier and reach out to more people, Jacobs said. But its critical that the mission of providing avor and enriching our lives with food ... all of that has to stay.

he uses on his properties. Jacobs would soon prove to be a forward thinker. Jacobs said he didnt realize sustainability was something he wanted to pursue until he was around 20 and running a tree nursery in the San Fernando Valley. He said he had a problem with aphids on his oak trees until the county inspector sold him a chemical pesticide, which made Jacobs sick. You dont ever want to be that sick, he said. That experience set him on a different path for nding ways to work with plants and soils and insects that would maintain a balance, he said. After college Jacobs worked on a small farm in Maine and in 1976 met Belin, who was working on a neighboring farm. Belin came to the farm after college and moving around for different jobs because she said she felt a strong pull to work in a rural setting. Jacobs said he and Belin left Maine when it got really cold to pursue a job opportunity in Costa Rica but they never got there. On the way, Jacobs said they met a member of a research team building a soils testing lab for the Canadian government in Guatemala, and were given a job helping to set up the lab. After three years in Guatemala, however, Jacobs wanted to try farming for himself. I was making these suggestions on how these small-scale farmers would manage their farms based on the analysis of the soils, and Id never grown any of these crops, Jacobs said. It felt disingenuous. It struck me that I should farm. Jacobs started looking for a piece of land in California. He said he liked the Pescadero climate and the good soil. In 1980, Jacobs Farm was started in a similar way to many young people who are starting farms today; we had lots

of different crops, Jacobs said. Eventually the farm focused on what Jacobs called a specialized niche culinary herbs such as rosemary, basil and mint. The physical realities of growing food are stark, Jacobs said. You cant erase it when something goes wrong, you have to deal with it. Jacobs said he and Belin didnt think about the farm becoming a successful business it started as just a family farm. The beginning years were mostly putting in the infrastructure, according to Jacobs, but by the mid-1980s he said we were doing pretty well as gourmet cooking became more popular and chefs grew more interested in using locally grown food. That was when the farm latched on to growing culinary herbs for chefs, according to Jacobs. We werent looking at the nancial statements and seeing how much money we were making ... but we knew it had to be a sustainable enterprise, Jacobs said. In the mid-1980s, the farm was successful enough that Jacobs and Belin could expand. Jacobs Farm now has a network of four farms in Pescadero, one in Swanton, another in Wilder Ranch State Park, and greenhouses in Watsonville, Freedom and Pajaro. All are in San Mateo, Santa Cruz and Monterey counties. The produce is distributed all over the country, but Jacobs said some is reserved for local markets. He said some land on every property owned by Jacobs Farm is also dedicated to growing food

Another ofcial, however, Ahmed Wali said the wounds were to Wali Karzais head, hand Karzai and leg. Wali Karzais bodyguards then rushed into the room and gunned down Mohammad. The assassination took place less than two hours before the president held an outdoor news conference with French President Nicolas Sarkozy in Kabul. Before it started, tears welled up in the eyes of Karzai associates. When Karzai arrived, he spoke in a somber voice. This morning my younger brother Ahmed Wali Karzai was murdered in his home, the president said. Such is the life of Afghanistans people. In the houses of the people of Afghanistan, each of us is suffering and our hope is, God willing, to remove this suffering from the people of Afghanistan and implement peace and stability. for the selection of a constituent assembly that will draft a new constitution, allaying fears by many Egyptians that Islamists likely to dominate parliamentary elections due in September would elect an assembly that would give the document an Islamic slant.

He said the database is creating two-dimensional barcodes similar to what are used on mail that would provide a wealth of information about the animal and how it was processed. Buskirk said his team also has applied for federal funding to help develop software that would offer a more user-friendly look and feel to the data. Beef-tracking efforts are under way elsewhere. Technology that allows meat to be traced back to the farm has been used in Europe and other countries for more than a decade. IdentiGEN Ltd., based in Ireland with U.S. ofces in Lawrence, Kan., was founded by researchers from Trinity College in Dublin, who developed the process that assesses genetic markers in meat with DNA analysis in the mid-1990s. Its working with Richmond, Va.-based distributor Performance Food Group on supplying DNA-traceable beef to thousands of restaurants. DNA TraceBack uses natures own barcode the DNA of each animal to identify and trace each cut of meat from the animal to fork, Ronan Loftus, CEO of IdentiGEN North America, said in a news release in May. There is a lot of marketing noise out there. DNA technology cuts through that noise, and provides the ultimate proof of product integrity. Buskirk said he sees the technology as a potentially complementary system to the work he and his colleagues are pursuing. They envision a broad-based, voluntary program that ties Michigan livestock producers with food service and retail operations. Although thats a long way off, he said a small, focused project is the best way work out the kinks and go beyond doing this on a farmers market scale.

Karzais half brother gunned down


KANDAHAR, Afghanistan The powerful half brother of President Hamid Karzai was gunned down in his heavily fortied home by a close associate Tuesday, setting off a power struggle in southern Afghanistan and raising doubts about stability in a critical area for the U.S.-led war effort. The assassination of Ahmed Wali Karzai, a wheeler-dealer and the key to his half brothers power in the south, leaves the president without an inuential ally to handle the tricky job of balancing the interests of the regions tribal and political leaders, drug runners, insurgents and militias. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, but ofcials immediately cast doubt that they were involved. If they were, it could undercut the presidents own effort to talk peace with insurgents as foreign forces begin their exit. The gunmans motive was unclear. He was identied as Sardar Mohammad, who had provided security for Wali Karzai and members of his family. Tooryalai Wesa, the provincial governor of Kandahar, described Mohammad as a close, trustworthy person who had gone to Wali Karzais house purportedly to get him to sign

Later that evening, the president ew south to Kandahar to be with his slain brother and relatives. A funeral was scheduled for Thursday, and Wali Karzai was to be buried in Karz, the Karzai family village in Kandahar province the spiritual birthplace of the Taliban movement and the site of recent coalition military offensives. Wali Karzai, who was in his 50s, was for years a lightning rod for criticism of corruption in the government. He was seen by many as a political liability for Karzai after a series of allegations including that he was involved in drug trafcking. He denied the charges. The president repeatedly challenged his accusers to show him evidence of his siblings wrongdoing, but said nobody ever could. With no concrete evidence to force his ouster, U.S. ofcials worked to persuade Wali Karzai to align his activities with coalition goals, or at least not impede them. Mr. Karzai has been the target of endless accusations about being a drug dealer and many other things, said Bruce Riedel, an ex-CIA ofcer and former adviser to the White House on Afghan policy. As far as I know, talking to people in the U.S. government, these are accusations backed up by very little evidence. teenage son and Filipino nephew before dawn Tuesday from a southern Philippine island near a stronghold of al-Qaida-linked militants, ofcials said. Suspicion fell on the notorious Abu Sayyaf, which has been blamed for ransom kidnappings, beheadings and bombings in the last two decades, or a Muslim rebel commander whose group has been linked to previous abductions. The 400-plus Abu Sayyaf militants, who are ghting for an Islamist state in the predominantly Christian nation, are holding three other kidnap victims, including a child, as part of desperate efforts to raise funds, according to the Philippine army. No contact or ransom demand has been made by the abductors, and their identities remain unconrmed, de Ocampo said.

sengers all over, to Turkey, to New York, to Paris. We receive emissaries who are saying, Gadha is prepared to leave. Lets discuss it, Juppe said, without identifying the envoys. Moammar The U.S. State Gadha Department said that Washington, too, is getting visitors. We have a lot of folks claiming to be representatives of Gadha one way or the other reaching out to lots of other folks in the West, said State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland. But the These raise urgent questions about whether todays children will have the resources they need to help care for Americas growing elderly population. The numbers are largely based on an analysis by the Population Reference Bureau, a nonprot research group in Washington that studies global and U.S. trends. In some cases, the data were supplemented with additional census projections on U.S. growth from 2010-2050 as well as gures compiled by the Annie E. Casey Foundations Kids Count project. Nationwide, the number of children has grown by 1.9 million, or 2.6 percent, since 2000. That represents a drop-off from the previous decade, when even higher rates of immigration by Latinos who are more likely than some other ethnic groups to have large families helped increase the number of children by 8.7 million, or 13.7 percent. Percentages aside, 23 states and the District of Columbia had declines in their numbers of children in the centurys rst decade, with Michigan, Rhode Island, Vermont and D.C. seeing some of the biggest drops. On the other hand, states with some of the biggest increases Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina and Texas also ranked in the bottom one-third of states in terms of Pacicas City Council approved the contract in June, said City Manager Stephen Rhodes. Pacificas police department has numerous cuts this year, totaling $634,000, including the layoffs of six full-time employees. Mullin sees the partnership as a rst step toward talks of expanding shared services between cities in the northern part of the county. Its a balancing act to maintain savings but not require building new facilities, he said. In other business, South San Francisco ofcials will consider extending a moratorium on issuing business licensees to retail tobacco stores. Noting an abundance of places selling tobacco, a cry for less smoke downtown and an effort to curb access of tobacco products to children, the council approved a 45-day temporary ban in June with a 4-0 vote, with Councilwoman Karyl Matsumoto, who brought forth the item, absent. The council will tonight consider extending the moratorium for an additional 10 months and 15 days. The ban will affect retail tobacco stores dened as having more than 15 percent of the total oor dedicated to the sale of tobacco, tobacco smoking prodexisting locales to renew their permits as long as all therapists have valid, unconditional certicates from the nonprot California Massage Therapy Council. To obtain a certicate, a person must pass a background and identity check and complete 250 hours of training. The CAMTC also issues conditional certicates to those who graduated from schools not requiring the same number of classroom or study issues. These can be a sign of illegitimate practitioners, Rothaus said. messages are contradictory, and we remain to (hear) a clear-cut message more importantly, the TNC (Transitional National Council representing the rebels) remains to have a clear-cut message that Gadha is prepared to understand that its time for him to go, she said. French ofcials and their allies have insisted that Gadhas giving up power is key to ending the hostilities, which began in mid-March, and Juppe said that more and more countries agree on that point. There is a consensus on how to end the crisis, which is that Gadha has to leave power, Juppe said. That (consensus) was absolutely not a given two or three months ago. child well-being as measured by the Kids Count project. The project calculated child well-being based on levels of poverty, single-parent families, unemployment, high-school dropouts and other factors. The slowing population growth in the U.S. mirrors to a lesser extent the situation in other developed nations, including Russia, Japan and France which are seeing reduced growth or population losses due to declining birth rates and limited immigration. The combined population of more-developed countries other than the U.S. is projected to decline beginning in 2016, raising the prospect of prolonged budget crises as the number of working-age citizens diminish, pension costs rise and tax revenues fall. Japan, France, Germany and Canada each have lower shares of children under age 15, ranging between 13 percent in Japan and 17 percent in Canada, while nations in Africa and the Middle East have some of the largest shares, including 50 percent in Niger and 46 percent in Afghanistan, according to gures from the United Nations Population Division. In the U.S., the share of children under 15 is 20 percent. Depending on future rates of immigration, the U.S. population is estimated to continue growing through at least 2050. ucts or tobacco accessories/paraphernalia; or stores that devote more than a 2foot-by-4-foot section of a shelf display for the sale of tobacco or tobacco accessories. Lastly, the council will consider approving a one-year contract with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, Local 829, ending June 30, 2012. Under the agreement, employees would receive no across-the-board wage increase. In addition, the contract will no longer have a no layoff or furlough clause nor will it have a me too clause. A side letter will also be added to allow extra shifts should South San Francisco begin providing dispatch services for Pacica, according to a staff report written by Human Resources Director Kathy Mount. The council meets 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 13 at the Municipal Services Center, 33 Arroyo Drive, South San Francisco.

PARIS Frances foreign minister said Tuesday Paris has had contact with emissaries from Moammar Gadha who say the embattled Libyan strongman is prepared to leave power. It was not immediately clear whether such an offer is credible or amounts to a potential breakthrough in the Libyan crisis. But Gadha has refused to leave or give up power. Alain Juppe said that while the contacts do not constitute proper negotiations, everyone (involved in Libyas civil war) has contacts with everyone else. The Libyan regime sends its mes-

Currently, the share of children in the U.S. is 24 percent, falling below the previous low of 26 percent of 1990. The share is projected to slip further, to 23 percent by 2050, even as the percentage of people 65 and older is expected to jump from 13 percent today to roughly 20 percent by 2050 due to the aging of baby boomers and beyond. In 1900, the share of children reached as high as 40 percent, compared to a much smaller 4 percent share for seniors 65 and older. The percentage of children in subsequent decades held above 30 percent until 1980, when it fell to 28 percent amid declining birth rates, mostly among whites. There are important implications for the future of the U.S. because the increasing costs of providing for an older population may reduce the public resources that go to children, said William P. OHare, a senior consultant with the Baltimore-based Annie E. Casey Foundation, a childrens advocacy group. Pointing to signs that many children are already struggling, OHare added:

Its something that makes sense for both Pacifica and South City, said South San Francisco Mayor Kevin Mullin. Pacica saves some money and South San Francisco earns a little money, he said, adding it will also allow South City to hire a few new people. South San Francisco currently dispatches for the Colma Police Department from midnight to 8 a.m. daily and 24 hours during certain holidays. Adding another city would require increasing South Citys staff by four at the communication center, according to a staff report by Police Chief Michael Massoni. Also, the South San Francisco Police Department would need to restructure positions lled by civilians within the department by consolidating communications, records and evidence into one unit with a manager and three supervisory positions, Massoni wrote.

Without any right to deny applications or revoke licenses, Rothaus worried the city is attracting fronts for prostitution and possibly human trafcking. At least one establishment on El Camino Real has been investigated several times, leading to multiple arrests. The emergency moratorium allows

Prior to the council vote Monday, CAMTC CEO Ahmos Netanel said the nonprot actually does revoke or suspend questionable licenses. In June, the Belmont City Council approved a similar 45-day emergency moratorium. But while at least these two San Mateo County cities are worried about the state takeover leading to more prostitution, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said his ofce has not seen a commensurate increase in cases.

In the year ahead there are some strong indications that some friends will play key roles in your affairs, not only socially, but business-wise as well. Be friendly to all, because you dont know which ones will step up and open those doors.
CanCeR (June 21-July 22) -- Treat everyone youre

around as someone special and itll add a luster to your personality you couldnt manufacture. Make popularity your goal. leO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Lady Luck always tags onto tenacity of purpose, so unless you dont want her in

your life, do whatever you can to make what you want happen. The harder you try, the better your chances. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Good things happen when we get out and do what we can to socialize with others. You might even be able to make a new friend wholl become special in your life. lIBRa (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Some kind of better shift in conditions is developing for you, of which you might not initially be aware. As time passes, however, it will become abundantly clear to you. sCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- There are strong indications that something youre tying to do cannot be accomplished alone. If youre having trouble tackling an important project, keep this in mind and get a partner. saGITTaRIus (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- By thinking in

positive terms or using constructive measures to fulfill a material hope or expectation, a sizeable profit can be realized. Dont let yourself get dragged down by a naysayer. CaPRICORn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You should try to make things happen instead of waiting for them to occur. Enterprises or endeavors you originate and personally control have strong possibilities of becoming realities. aQuaRIus (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Even if you are a trifle bit slow in revving up some steam to get yourself going, once you get started, there will be no holding you back. You could be an amazing finisher. PIsCes (Feb. 20-March 20) -- There is likely to be some strong justification for you feeling a bit fortunate. Dame Fortune wont do the job for you, but she

will help you to get on a roll and pull things off. aRIes (March 21-April 19) -- If youre designing something you hope could generate a profit, once your plans are solidified, dont sit on them. Delay wont help; only action will make things happen. TauRus (April 20-May 20) -- Get out and mingle if you can, because you could run into someone who belongs to a group youre longed to join. When you start interacting, others will interact with you. GeMInI (May 21-June 20) -- Instead of trying to make things happen, let life take its own course of events. Lady Luck is likely to do a far better job for you than you can yourself. Copyright 2011, United Feature Syndicate, Inc.
