Signs of compromise for In-N-Out

Burger joint may plant trees to block tall sign in San Carlos neighborhood
By Michelle Durand

In-N-Out Burger may plant new backyard trees for several San Carlos home owners who say the restaurants tall neon sign impedes their views and casts unwanted light on their properties. To keep the towering 65-foot yellow and red sign bearing its name and tell-tale arrow

from bothering neighbors, a project manager with the company is working on plans to shield it with trees. A landscape manager from In-N-Out visited participating homes last week to take stock of owner requests for specific foliage. Residents are also hoping In-N-Out funds the removal of some existing trees to make way for the new transplants but that is not as certain, said Ben Fuller, president of the Greater

East San Carlos neighborhood group that includes the affected homes near the 455 Industrial Road restaurant. The sign is directly in sight of approximately 25 homes and has some impact on around 100, particularly on Faireld and Springeld drives, Fuller estimates. Acting Public Works Director Al Savay conrmed a tree plan is in the works but directed all other inquiries to the parties

involved, the GESC neighborhood group and the chain. In-N-Out Project Manager Mark Noack did not return several calls about the landscaping plan but Fuller said In-N-Out ofcials indicated after last weeks visit they will get back to the neighbors on the offer. For now, though, he said, the chances of solving the problem look good.

Small dip in Californias jobless rate

All Bay Area counties are below state average,some below national average


Gail Turner Bauer poses in front of the two-seater plane she built. Bauer will be one of the pilots on hand Saturday for Bay Area X-Planes at Hiller Aviation Museum which will feature home built X-planes along with their builders from around the Bay Area.

Californias unemployment rate dipped slightly to 11.9 percent in September but has not moved signicantly from where it has been through most of the recession, the state reported Friday. California added a total of 11,800 nonfarm jobs. The gains were led by the construction, professional and business services, and leisure and hospitality sectors. Government, education and health care posted declines, according to the Employment Development Department. The September number was down from 12.1 percent in August and from 12.5 percent during the year-ago period. Bay Area counties were all below the state average, but only a handful Marin, San Mateo, San Francisco and Napa counties were below the national average.

A great adventure
Belmont woman recounts challenge of building,flying her own plane
By Heather Murtagh

See JOBS, Page 27

Gail Turner Bauer was in her 30s when she decided she needed a new challenge. A mother, wife and kindergarten teacher at George Hall Elementary School in San Mateo, Bauer studied for her pilots license. She didnt enjoy ying at rst but it was love the minute she ew solo. Today, now pushing 70, Bauer recalled eating at Sky Kitchen near the San Carlos Airport discussing dreams of building her own plane. Fueled by taunts

from men who all said she couldnt do it, Bauer decided to prove them wrong. Ultimately, she built two planes. Bauer will be one of the pilots on hand Saturday for Bay Area X-Planes at Hiller Aviation Museum which will feature home-built X-planes along with their builders from around the Bay Area. Xplanes, or experimental aircrafts, are often used as a test. In these cases, it was testing the ability to build a plane. On the other hand, a government-funded Xplane could be a device built to break the sound barrier. Being a kindergarten teacher, Bauer

was teased she couldnt make a plane since she didnt have a high level of skills. I was going to build a plane, even if I had to cut and paste it, she said. Bauer started with a kit that really did work that way. After 14 months of work, often done at her Belmont home, Bauers Fly Baby was ready. She painted it hot pink, and often donned a matching jumper. The plane was known as the Pink Baroness. In 1976, Bauer ew her own plane across the country to

Accused killer pleads insanity,seeks delay

By Michelle Durand

Vandalism. A window was broken on Spring Street before 8:31 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20. Shooting. Construction workers hid in a manhole because of gunfire at Rugters before 8:57 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 20. Burglary. Approximately $800 worth of tools were stolen from multiple vehicles through a wooden fence broken into on the side of a building on Winslow Street before 7:54 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 20. Burglary. Several cellphones were stolen from a burglarized business on Florence Street before 2:25 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 20.

The Millbrae man accused of fatally shooting his friend and leaving the body on a residential Burlingame street after a night of drinking pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and will learn on Tuesday if he can have more time to prepare for trial as his own attorney. Teyseer Zaid Terry Najdawi, 28, entered the plea on top of his previous not guilty plea Friday and two doctors were appointed to evaluate him. Those reports are due Nov. 8. He also asked to delay his Oct. 31 jury trial date but that request wont be considered until Tuesday. Najdawi was allowed last month to represent himself although his previously appointed defense attorney was named as stand-by counsel. Najdawis position as attorney and insanity defendant comes on the heels of his return from Napa State Hospital where he was institutionalized after being found incompetent for trial. Once doctors there found him t to aid in his own defense, Najdawi returned to San Mateo County for prosecution in the 2008 death of Jack Chu, 27. Chus body was found slumped in a car at the intersection of Chula Vista and Sanchez avenues and connected to an early-morning shooting reported July 8, 2008 in Millbrae. Chu reportedly had been in the drivers seat

Teyseer Najdawi

when shot nearly a dozen times in the head. Authorities assume the shooter pushed Chus body aside and drove the car away. Authorities say the men had been drinking together that night but further motive remains unclear. A week later, police apprehended Najdawi at a Redding

Burglary. A home was broken into on the 2400 block of Kehoe Avenue before 11:37 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 19 Burglary. A home was broken into on the 100 block of Clark Drive before 7:08 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 19. Theft. A woman reported an unauthorized transaction from her account at an ATM on the 300 block of South El Camino Real before 1:21 p.m. Monday, Oct. 17. Theft. Two people stole items from a store on 42nd Avenue before 4:49 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3. Fraud. A person used a stolen credit card on the 1600 block of Vanburen Street before 2:36 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3. Suspicious person. A man cut a lock on a bike on West Third Avenue before noon

Drunk in public. A woman was on the ground in front of a fire hydrant and arrested for public intoxication on East Hillsdale Boulevard before 8:34 p.m. Monday, Oct. 17. Disturbance. Someone threw a firecracker behind a man and his wife as they were walking in the parking lot of a store on Metro Center Boulevard before 5:39 p.m. Monday, Oct. 17. Burglary. A vehicle was burglarized and a DVD was taken form the trunk on Compass

motel. Najdawi is charged with murder and gun use in Chus death and felony fraud for allegedly stealing his brothers credit card for use the night of the murder and while evading police afterward. He is separately charged with attempted murder for allegedly attacking his cellmate at the Maguire Correctional Facility while awaiting trial in the previous case. Najdawi is allowed to be his own attorney because he is now considered competent. He can also enter a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity because that refers to his mental state at the time of the alleged crime and not his current ability to understand courtroom proceedings. He remains in custody without bail.

WASHINGTON President Barack Obama said the 12 people he recognized Friday for achievement in science, technology and innovation should make others feel embarrassed about their old science projects. Remember the baking soda volcano? The volcano with the stuff coming out ... with the baking soda inside, Obama said at a White House awards ceremony where the National Medal of Science went to seven researchers while the National Medal of Technology and Innovation went to five inventors. Apparently, that was not a cutting-edge achievement, even though our parents told us it was really terrific. The researchers were recognized for work that ranged from discovering a new property of the DNA helix to contributions to the development and use of transgenic mice rodents given an extra dose of genetic material and used in medical research. Obama pointed out that nine of the honorees were born in foreign countries but ended up in the U.S. because America is the best place in the world to do the work that they do. And now more than ever, its critical that we make the investments necessary to keep it that way. He said too few of todays college under-

Community college fees now due sooner

Starting with the spring semester, students in the San Mateo County Community College District will need to pay all fees or be enrolled in a payment plan before the semester begins. Not meeting the Jan. 4 deadline will result in students being dropped from the class. Numerous meetings are scheduled for the rest of the semester in an effort to make people aware of the policy changes, according to a staff report by district ChancellorSuperintendent Ron Galatolo. In addition, messages appear on district-run websites when students log in. An update on the efforts will be presented to the board during its Wednesday meeting. Under the new program, all fees must be paid at registration. Students who do not pay by Jan. 4 risk being dropped from classes. Alternatively, students can sign up for a payment plan by the same date. Signing up for the plan costs $20 and students will be allowed to make up to ve installments between registration and April 5, Galatolo wrote. Weekly meetings will be held throughout the rest of the semester to discuss the change. At the same meeting, the district will discuss the recent increase in the facility rental fees. While the fee structure was set in 2006, the rates have not been increased since 2000, Galatolo wrote. The new fees, which went into effect July 1, represent an average increase of 33 percent from the rates established over the last 10 years. The board meets 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26 at the District Ofce, 3401 CSM Drive, San Mateo.


Barack Obama speaks before presenting the National Medals of Science & National Medals of Technology and Innovation in the East Room of the White House in Washington,D.C.
graduates are studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics subjects that he says are critical to the future global competitiveness of the U.S. And thats troubling, because no matter how many great minds we attract from around the world, it wont be enough if we cant grow some here at home, Obama said.

Former hospital worker charged with stealing patient info

By Michelle Durand

A former hospital mailroom employee who took home and kept approximately 1,500 patient records will appear in court Monday on charges of embezzlement and forgery. The charges against Katherine Asimos, 49, are misdemeanors because it is impossible to put a monetary value on the records, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. Asimos allegedly took the documents between November 2009 and September 2010 while working for Mills-Peninsula Health Services. The Burlingame hospital learned of the breach June 17 when Asimos brother discovered the documents while helping her move and returned them to the hospital.

Asimos has since been terminated. Her reason for removing the records is unclear but she told authorities she was overwhelmed with sorting them at work and brought them home with plans to shred them later, Wagstaffe said. The hospital publicized the breach in early August, assuring patients the records did not appear to be used for anything, and reported the incident to the Burlingame police. All of the patients whose information was taken were notied and the hospital offered one year of free credit monitoring and identity protection to the patients whose registration information, including addresses, insurance identication and Social Security numbers, were taken. The majority of purloined documents were

medical reports or X-rays and registration information destined for delivery to physician ofces. Most had patient names and diagnostic test results but 15 also included addresses and Social Security numbers. At the time, a hospital spokeswoman said she could not recall a previous violation. She could not be reached for comment on Asimos case. The theft is also rare for prosecutors, Wagstaffe said. Weve had people take court records before but not hospital les, he said. Charges were led Sept. 28 and Asimos was sent a notice to appear Monday for arraignment on ve counts of forgery, embezzlement by a caretaker and embezzlement of records. She faces jail time if convicted.

Gym peeper looking at time served


Womans body pulled from the surf at Manor Beach

A partially clothed womans body was pulled from the surf in Pacica Friday morning, according to police. The body was found in the water by two shermen at Manor Beach Friday morning and reported shortly after 8:30 a.m. A cause of death has not been determined and an autopsy will be conducted at a later date, police said. The womans identity is being withheld pending notication of her next of kin.

A San Mateo gym janitor arrested last week for peeping at two women changing in the locker room was sentenced to time served and ordered to stay away from the business after pleading no contest to misdemeanor disorderly conduct. Jose Albert Soto-Cabrera, 28, of Redwood

City, was given 20 days jail with credit for the same amount plus two years probation and an order forbidding him from going to 24 Hour Fitness on El Camino Real. Police arrested Soto-Cabrera Oct. 12 after two women reported finding him in the locker room. The women, ages 20 and 21, went swimming at the gym just after midnight and had returned to the room to shower and

change. One woman, who was nude, saw him watching from behind a set of lockers and both discovered him standing on a medicine ball to peer over, according to the District Attorneys Office. Soto-Cabrera told police he did not see the women and was not attracted to them because he is married, according to prosecutors.

Poll: 37 percent of public back protests

Downtown San Mateo executive director quits
A man hired to spruce up and bring new business to downtown San Mateo has quit, Downtown San Mateo Association President Kris Cesena told the Daily Journal this week. Rob Edwards submitted a resignation letter last week, Cesena said. Hes just moving on, she said. Edwards, named the DSMAs executive director in April 2010, was hired to replace the outgoing Kelly Mitter, who led the nonprot agency in previous years. Edwards was primarily hired to implement a property-based business improvement district to raise about $750,000 annually for the association. That money would be applied toward downtown improvements and marketing. Edwards needed to get 50 percent of property owners in downtown to agree with the assessment to form such a district but had only gathered just shy of 20 percent support for the effort up until now, Cesena said. WASHINGTON More than one-third of the country supports the Wall Street protests, and even more 58 percent say they are furious about Americas politics. The number of angry people is growing as deep reservoirs of resentment grip the country, according to the latest Associated Press-GfK poll. Some 37 percent of people back the protests that have spread from New York to cities across the country and abroad, one of the rst snapshots of how the public views the Occupy Wall Street movement. A majority of those protest supporters are Democrats, but the anger about politics in general is much more widespread, the poll indicates. Theyve got reasons to be upset, theyve got reasons to protest, but theyre protesting

Theyve got reasons to be upset,theyve got reasons to protest,but theyre protesting against the wrong people.
Jan Jarrell,54,a retired school custodian

against the wrong people, Jan Jarrell, 54, a retired school custodian from Leesville, S.C., says of the New York demonstrators. They need to go to Washington, to Congress and the White House. Theyre the ones coming up with all the rules. Occupy Wall Street has been called the liberal counterpoint to conservative-libertarian tea party, which injected a huge dose of enthusiasm into the Republican Party and helped it win the House and make gains in the Senate last fall. While the troubled economy is at the root of anger at both government and business leaders, theres a key difference. Tea party activists generally argue that government is

the problem, and they advocate for free markets. The Wall Street protesters generally say that government can provide some solutions and the free market has run amok. Of the Americans who support the Wall Street protests, 64 percent in the poll are Democrats, while 22 percent are independents and just 14 percent are Republicans. The protest backers are more likely to approve of President Barack Obama and more likely to disapprove of Congress than are people who dont support the demonstrations. More generally, many more Americans 58 percent say they are furious about the countrys politics than did in January, when 49 percent said they felt that way.

Medicare costs to reduce Social Security increase

Prison system begins issuing layoff notices
SACRAMENTO The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has begun issuing 26,000 layoff-warning notices as the prison system prepares to adjust to a new law that shifts lower-level offenders to county jails. The corrections department began issuing notices Friday to employees with fewer than 10 years of service across a wide range of job classications.

Hillside development rules proposed

An ordinance regulating the size and scope of development in Redwood Citys hillside neighborhood is not an attempt to oversee design elements like architecture or colors, planners promised the community Tuesday night. As the Planning Commission considered recommending the City Council adopt the zoning ordinance, planning staff took pains to repeatedly tell the crowded audience that the city is not trying to regulate those details. Not all residents were convinced, however, and questioned how details like prohibiting pools or using decks and driveways to calculate coverage areas dont fall under the description.

Eshoo:Obama fails on foreclosures

U.S. Rep. Anna Eshoo heaped criticism on President Barack Obama and his administration this week for failing to address the catastrophic wave of home foreclosures across the country and is pressuring the White House to adopt effective policies to turn the housing crisis around. Eshoos ofce wants to see Obama get a little more aggressive in tackling the issue. Numbers released Wednesday suggest the crisis may worsen as real estate information service DataQuick reported that banks sent nearly 26 percent more default notices to California homeowners in the third quarter compared to the previous three months.

WASHINGTON That didnt last long. About 55 million Social Security recipients will get their rst increase in benets next year since 2009 a 3.6 percent raise. But higher Medicare premiums could erase part of it. For some, higher Medicare Part B premiums could wipe out as much as a fourth of their raise from Social Security, according to projections by the trustees who oversee the programs. Medicare is expected to announce 2012 Part B premiums as early as next week. The premiums, which cover doctor visits, are deducted automatically from monthly Social Security payments.

The Social Security Administration announced the pay increase Wednesday, offering a measure of comfort to millions of retirees and disabled people, many who have seen their retirement accounts dwindle, home values drop and out-of-pocket medical costs rise in the years since their last raise. Starting in January, 55 million Social Security recipients will get increases averaging $39 a month, or just over $467 for the year. In December, more than 8 million people who receive Supplemental Security Income, the disability program for the poor, will get increases averaging $18 a month, or about $216 for the year. In all, 1 in 5 U.S. residents stand to get a raise from the cost-of-living adjustment, or COLA. if they retire. The amount would also be determined by the single highest compensation year. The new tier would provide a 3 percent at 55 plan that would be determined by the highest three-year average compensation years. The proposal is to help with the growing cost of employee retirements. The council meets 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25 at City Hall, 1 Twin Pines Lane. The San Carlos City Council will consider potential sites for electronic message boards which will be used to promote community events. The boards rage in price from $15,000 to $45,000 depending on size and

Letters to the editor

Measure H college bond is flawed
Editor, It seems like every time we turn around, our community college district is asking to borrow more money and borrowing is a very expensive way to pay for things. While some of the half a billion dollars sought in Measure H might be put to good use, taxpayers should not be expected to pay for more parking lots from our taxes. A revenue bond funded from parking revenue would be appropriate. The district is too fond of pouring concrete over its remaining open space. Look at your property tax bill; youll see were still paying off prior bonds. The district also gets operating revenue from our property taxes as well as state funding and student fees. The district should fund its priorities from its current revenues. Many taxpayers are having trouble making their house payments and property taxes. Adding hundreds of dollars in annual property taxes is a bad idea right now. Look both to your left and right before you proceed. A big SUV can do a lot of damage if not operated carefully. I try not to take my car when I go to the park to play tennis. I hope drivers in this town can honor that request.

No on Measure H and to all college board incumbents

Editor, The trustees priorities have gone astray. They are spending money on pet projects. Instead of focusing on learning and retrofitting classrooms, they are building a mega-campus that cannot be sustained. They have built a fee-based health and fitness center, which competes with other businesses and nonprofits like the Jewish Community Center and the YMCA. New blood is needed! The college board always votes unanimously. They are using bond measures like credit cards, not realizing what the end result will be (which will be more future bonds to sustain the campus). And, on a personal note, whats very disturbing to me is that CSM will no longer have a horticulture program. Theirs is the last in San Mateo County. A parking lot will replace the greenhouses that are there now. Shame on the trustees.

Chauvinism and true patriotism

he denition of chauvinism is excessive or blind patriotism. And that, I believe, has been at the root of our falling behind other major nations in all but two areas, the military and creative electronics. We have looked upon those who point out our national shortcomings for patriotic reasons as traitors, when, actually, its not just Our country right or wrong but, if wrong, to correct it. For example, during the hubbub over the health care reform act, while opponents were calling our system the best in the world, the World Health Organizations had it ranked as 47th in the world. And, we are behind in every other category, especially in mortality and the education of our young. It has not been a shining city on the hill, as Ronald Reagan characterized it, but a city becoming obscured by dark clouds with no silver linings. Based on his chauvinistic delusions, the right has cashed in, consolidating power as income and wealth have concentrated at the top while capturing the Supreme Court. Due to his economic philosophy, programs and tax breaks for the rich, from the late 1970s, when the richest 1 percent of Americans received 9 percent of total income and held 18 percent of the nations wealth, by 2007 they had more than 23 percent of total income and controlled something between 35 percent and 50 percent of Americas wealth. CEOs of the 1970s were paid 40 times the average workers wage; now CEOs receive 300 times the typical workers wage. Meanwhile, due to the medias nancial commitment to 24/7 news coverage, we are being treated to a road show for two years of presidential primaries and policy campaigning, featuring Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Rick Santorum and the others of todays Republican right, who arent really conservatives. Their goal isnt to conserve. Its to take back the hard-earned social and sexual freedoms, cripple antitrust laws, the Pure Food and Drug Act, Social Security, unemployment insurance, labor laws, the minimum wage, Medicare and Medicaid, worker safety laws, the Environmental Protection Act, the GlassSteagall Act, the Securities and Exchange Act and the Voting Rights Act, among others. However, there has regularly come historic points when the American public has had it with the national inequality of income and wealth, survival of the ttest, dont help the poor or unemployed or anyone whos fallen on bad times, because the jobless are lazy and the wealthy are job creators (Oh, yah? Still holding lower taxed $2.5 trillion from job creation). Even without the help of the gelded unions, the middle and lower economic class have the vast majority of the vote and dont look for them to support any more taken away from them in this ongoing recession. It seems incredibly clueless that those in their fervor for the Republican nomination for president do not realize, with their ever more extreme programs to gain favor with the far right, they may be getting love and kisses from their slivers of admirers but are alienating more and more of the moderate middle class and independents. There are tipping points in our history when the frustrations of average Americans turn into action. And thats probably whats happening again with the irresistibly growing Occupy Wall Street movement across the United States and even across the world. The right wing media and nancial institutions may mock it, but its here to stay and grow, in the same fashion as the loosely organized Tea Party movement had its say in the 2010 elections. And thats whats going to be determinative of the 2012 elections. No matter how many billions of campaign dollars are spent, how many negative sound bites, how much legal maneuvering of Republican governors to redistrict to favor Republicans or to make it more difcult for the disadvantaged to vote, or television and radio pundits to harangue, how personally unfavorable President Obama may become, it is my fearless prediction that Barack Obama will not win the 2012 presidential election. The Republicans will lose it. *** It seems incredible, to get back one captured soldier son of Israel, 1,000 Palestinians imprisoned for anything up to murder will be released in exchange. Instead of exulting in the coup, I would think the Palestinians should be reecting upon the value Israelis place upon one of their own children and how little they put upon their own when they deck them out with high explosives to become suicide bombers. Perhaps, this helps explain why the Israelis, with such love of every one of their own, have survived intact through the millennia in the face of the most horrendous prejudice and murder. One thousand Palestinians for one Israeli. Wow! One would think the Palestinians should be embarrassed.

Perez for Foster City Council

Editor, There are many in our community who cling to the status quo attitude. This attitude, if allowed to expand would diminish the quality of life for all residents of Foster City and downgrade its economy for our local businesses. Herb Perez brings new energy, fresh ideas and a very different positive attitude towards nding optimal, out of the box solutions to address the numerous issues the city faces. I am in full support with your endorsement of Herb Perez for Foster City Council and hope to see Perez elected Foster City Council in the upcoming elections.

Not time to give up Bicycling in San Mateo

Editor, On Friday afternoon of Oct. 14 around 5 p.m., at the intersection of El Cameo Real and Ninth Avenue, only one block from San Mateo Central Park, I was on a bicycle heading south. The trafc light at Ninth Avenue was red and the pedestrian cross light indicated it was OK for me to cross Ninth Avenue. As I was crossing, all of a sudden this huge, late model Acura SUV at the intersection of Ninth Avenue decided to make the right-hand turn onto El Camino Real. It bumped into me, bumping me off my bicycle and onto the pavement. As I was bumped off my bike, I saw the drivers son on the passenger side of the vehicle cover his face in shock. I am sure the driver didnt mean to bump into me. What amazed me most was his comment when he got out of his car. He said: Do you know it is illegal to ride bikes across the intersection? The pedestrian cross light is only for pedestrians. I think he realized how wrong he was and apologized profusely right after he said that. I had minor scratches around the knee area and the bike, which belongs to my son, seemed to be OK, so I decided to let him off the hook. The reason I am writing this letter is to alarm drivers in this town to develop good driving habits if we are going to encourage bicycle riding in this town.

Belmont city clerk election

Editor, After reading about Mr. Dave Wardens vision for the Belmont city clerk position, I wanted to express my view. Mr. Warden states that the city clerks role should be consistent with a volunteer-based salary and that he will volunteer (if elected) to do the job for $390 per month, in addition to the yearly $4,680 that comes with the vice mayor position. The job description for the Belmont city clerk position entails signicant responsibility. Giving parttime attention to this position is not in the best interest of the city, especially considering that the city clerk is often the rst contact for residents seeking information or clarication regarding local government services. In my opinion, the city clerk is clearly not the overpaid secretarial position that Mr. Warden insinuates. I nd his statements condescending, ippant and a bit rude. Mr. Warden states that he wants to dramatically increase transparency at City Hall. Certainly this is a worthy goal of all elected city ofcials and he should maintain it in his current position as vice mayor. However, I believe that the city of Belmont needs a dedicated and full-time professional in the position of city clerk.

Editor, In response to the op-ed Green jobs funding must end in the Oct. 18 edition of the Daily Journal, in any industry there are unfortunately going to be some individuals who are less scrupulous than others. But that does not stop us from dealing with those industries. If you encounter a dishonest mechanic, contractor, tradesman, etc., that doesnt stop you from fixing your car or doing home repairs. You simply use better diligence when the need arises again. Similarly, without trial and error (which means failures) there can be no progress. Mans early attempts at flight failed gloriously. Does that mean we should not have kept pursuing flight? What would the world be like today without air travel, let alone space exploration? Yes, there was presumably poor judgement in the Solyndra loan. That does not mean that solar and other alternative energy sources are bad, nor that these companies are corrupt or are bad investments. We need to continue to pursue alternative energy despite failures such as this one. Government subsidies (tax breaks and loans) are one way we encourage exploration and experimentation. This is how we create a better future.

Stocks rise sharply

By Daniel Wagner and Matthew Craft

Wall Street
McDonalds Corp., Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. and Harman International Industries Inc. were among the companies that beat analysts expectations. The quarterly earnings season is off to a strong start. Of the 118 companies that reported earnings so far, 75 percent have beaten estimates, according to nancial data provider FactSet. The encouraging corporate news was in line with recent signs that the U.S. economy strengthened in September after a very weak summer. On Friday the government said unemployment fell last month in half of U.S. states and was unchanged in 11. Thats much better than in August, when unemployment rose in 26 states. Markets have been moving sharply in recent weeks, mainly in reaction to the latest headlines out of Europe on the debt crisis. The Dow had a bigger jump on Oct. 10, 330 points, after the leaders of France and Germany pledged to have a comprehensive solution to the debt crisis in place by the end of the month. The Dow has now gained 10.8 percent since Oct. 3, when it sank to its lowest point of the year.

Big movers
Stocks that moved substantially or traded heavily Friday on the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq Stock Market: NYSE Ford Motor Co.,up 56 cents at $12.26 Standard & Poors lifed the automakers credit rating to near investment grade, making it cheaper for the company to borrow. Seagate Technology PLC,up $3.36 at $15.42 Analysts said the hard disk drive maker could increase market share because ooding in Thailand has shut down a rivals factories. Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc.,up $25.58 at $333.49 More people went to the burrito chains restaurants. Higher prices and new locations helped lift third-quarter prot 25 percent. Oshkosh Corp.,up $1.50 at $19.90 A Bloomberg report speculated that activist investor Carl Icahn wants to combine the truck maker with rival Navistar. SunTrust Banks Inc.,down 64 cents at $18.57 The regional banks earnings rose as credit trends improved.But a drop in revenue related to mortgages caused shares to drop. Southwest Airlines Co.,down 23 cents at $8.87 The airlines third quarter loss was its rst in two years.Fuel-hedging bets turned sour when oil prices fell this summer. Nasdaq Acme Packet Inc.,down $7.76 at $30.37 Revenue increased,but costs also rose for sales, marketing and other items.Third-quarter prot fell nearly 25 percent. Biogen Idec Inc.,up $7.17 at $108.84 The drugmaker said a potential drug for multiple sclerosis met its treatment and safety goals in a late-stage clinical trial.

A broad rally swept through the stock market Friday after McDonalds and several other large companies reported solid earnings. The Standard & Poors 500 index closed higher for the third straight week, its best run since February, as hope builds that a weekend meeting will bring European leaders closer to easing the regions debt troubles. The Dow Jones industrial average jumped 267.01 points, or 2.3 percent, to 11,808.79. The Dow is now up 2 percent from where it started 2011. Before Fridays surge, it was down for the year. The Dow has risen for four weeks straight, the rst time that has happened since January. The combination of stronger earnings, better economic news and a sense that European ofcials were taking the debt crisis more seriously have helped lift stocks, said Phil Orlando, chief equity market strategist at Federated Investors. It seems like theres a greater sense of urgency to deal with Greece and the sovereign debt trouble in Europe, Orlando said.

Fee-wary customers switch banks

By Eileen A.J. Connelly

NEW YORK Cory and Stephanie Heck are in the midst of doing what countless other Bank of America customers have threatened. In response to the banks plan to charge $5 per month for using debit cards, theyre switching banks. We work too hard to have to pay to access our money, said Cory Heck, 31, a Bank of America customer for about four years. For me, its a customer service issue, said Stephanie, also 31, a human resources manager. As a customer, they havent treated us the way I would expect to be treated. The Hecks are far from alone. A growing number of big bank customers, angry about new debit card usage fees, harder-to-avoid checking accounts fees and rising ATM surcharges, are taking their frustrations and their business elsewhere. Theyre coming over in big chunks,

said David Glaser, vice president of National Capital Bank, a family run, two-branch community bank in Washington D.C. He estimated that 80 percent of the new accounts opened in the three weeks since news broke about the $5 debit card fees have been opened by customers of the Charlotte, N.C.based Bank of America Corp. And not all of those switching would even get charged the debit fee. I had a woman bring me a quarter of a million dollars, Glaser said. She would not have paid the $5 fee, she just didnt like the idea. Theres even a campaign, dubbed Bank Transfer Day that has more than 11,500 people pledging on Facebook to switch nancial institutions by Nov. 5. Most say they are headed to credit unions. Thats the choice made by the Hecks. After they searched for options in their hometown of Royal Oak, Mich., they decided to become members of Genisys Credit Union. Most credit unions are small, nonprof-

it membership organizations, that dont charge any fees or have low fees for their basic accounts. The Bethpage Federal Credit Union of Long Island, N.Y., is even offering a certicate with a lifetime no fee guarantee to its customers. Bethpage President and CEO Kirk Kordeleski said it has opened more than 1,500 new accounts in the two weeks after the Bank of America debit fee was announced, greater than twice the normal pace. People are literally walking into branches and cutting up their Bank of America cards. Offering the no-fee guarantee was easy, said Kordeleski, because the credit union has always offered free checking. Credit unions owned the free checking business in the 80s and 90s, because banks typically had a monthly fee at that time, he said. Debit cards and overdraft fees played a big roll in changing the landscape. Banks were able to regain their earnings from monthly checking fees with steady fee income paid by the retailers for debit card transactions.

Groupons fall to earth swifter than its fast rise

By Michelle Conlin

NEW YORK Only a few months ago, Groupon was the Internets next great thing. Business media christened it the fastest growing company ever. Copycats proliferated. And investors salivated over the prospect of Groupon going public. Today, the startup that pioneered online daily deals for coupons is an example of how fast an Internet darling can fall. Groupon is discounting its expectations for the IPO that in June was valued

as high as $25 billion. In a regulatory ling Friday, the company said that it expects a valuation that is less than half that at between $10.1 billion and $11.4 billion. Its the latest twist for Groupons IPO, which was one of the most anticipated offerings this year. In June, after Groupon led for the offering, the SEC raised concerns about the way it counts revenue. Then the stock market plunged. Now Groupon faces concerns about the viability of its daily deals business model. The novelty of online coupons is wearing off. Some merchants are complaining that they are losing money and customers on the deals. And

competitors are swarming the marketplace. Groupon is a disaster, says Sucharita Mulpuru, a Forrester Research analyst. Its a shill thats going to be exposed pretty soon. Groupon shows what can happen when a startup experiences steroidal growth in an unproven industry. To its defenders, the Chicago company is a victim of its success, its stumbles emblematic of a business in infancy. After all, Groupon has hordes of fans who rave about the companys deals and its liberal refund policy. And some merchants see the company has a way to get much-needed exposure. nine straight quarters of decreases in revenue at stores open at least a year, and may see a gain by the third quarter, which ends in late October. Premiums will rise for many existing workers, and the company will reduce by half the amount it contributes for each worker to help pay for health care expenses not covered under their plan.

Wal-Mart cuts some health care coverage

NEW YORK Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the nations largest private employer, is scaling back the eligibility of health care coverage offered to future part-timers and raising premiums for many of its fulltime workers.

The discounter, which employs more than 1.4 million workers, said the changes were forced by rising health care costs. All future part-time workers working less than 24 hours a week, on average, will be affected. Wal-Mart is working hard to reverse

Scots scorch Knights

Carlmont jumps out to a 28-7 halftime lead,beats Hillsdale 35-21
By Julio Lara

whole week coach Selli was telling us it was time to take it to the next level. We came out and hit them hard. The Scots hit the Knights hard, and hit them often, limiting Hillsdale to 234 yards of total offense. The Knights came in averaging more than 28 points per game. And while they did score 21, 14 of those came in the fourth quarter with Carlmont enjoying a four-touchdown lead. From quarters one through three, the Scots pretty much dominated the game. And they had Joe Lasala to thank for that. The Scots came out on their rst offensive series and converted a short eld into the games initial score a 1-yard touchdown run by Lasala with 7:06 left in the quarter.

The Carlmont football team hit the books hard this week. They knew they had to, because although they were riding high at 2-0 in the Peninsula Athletic League Lake Division, their Week 3 opponent was Hillsdale, their rst legitimate test in the regular season. Not only did the Scots (3-0) pass their test, they aced it with ying colors, shutting down the vaunted Hillsdale offense and capturing a 35-21 victory. This was a huge win for us, said Carlmont defensive back and receiver Sky Regan. The

Hillsdale responded on the ensuing drive. It only took the Knights ve plays to cover 60 yards with Josefa Vuatalevu doing most of the work on a 41-yard touchdown reception which was highlighted by an emphatic block at the 15 by Angel Salazar. But Lasala and the Scots saw that big play and raised them an even bigger one. On the Hillsdale kickoff, No. 44 caught the football on a line drive at the 19, picked up his blocks and then raced down the right sideline 81 yards for his second touchdown of the quarter. Any time you can counter a score with another score, its huge, said Carlmont head coach Jason Selli. That play made a big difference for

When the dust settled in Friday nights Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division matchup between Terra Nova and Burlingame, neither team left the eld satised. On one hand, you had the Tigers, who rode another stellar night by quarterback Chris Forbes to a 35-28 victory over the Panthers to stay unbeaten in league play. And on the other, you had Burlingame, who for the second week in a row played tough and stood toe-to-toe with one of the divisions top teams but only had a moral victory to show for it. Last week against Sacred Heart Prep, the Panthers lost by three. Friday night against the Tigers, they were a big play or two away from pulling off the upset. There were a lot of positives, said Burlingame coach John Philipopoulos. I will say that were all sick of the moral victories. Its time to get a win. Philipopoulos said hell have a sleepless Friday night looking at the game tape and wondering what might have been. Down by 14 points late, the Panthers recovered an onside kick with 8:54 left in the game, only to see the ensuing drive stall. Then after forcing a Terra Nova threeand-out, they were able to nd the end zone on an 11-yard touchdown pass from Kevin Navas to Chris Graham with under a minute left to play in the game. But Burlingames attempt to recover another onside kick was thwarted and a couple of kneel downs later, the game was over. It was that window of opportunity provided by the Tigers that had them unsatised after the game despite the win. Weve done that all year long, with the exception of one game, said Terra Nova coach Bill Gray. We are still searching for consistent play and our best game. And we have yet to do it. We put a team in a situation where theyre ready to go and the thing we dont understand is that their coaches and their players dont want to go. And we let them creep back in. We did it this week, we did it against Jeff, we did it against San Mateo, we did it against Sacred Heart Prep, weve done it every time. We did not play to our potential at all, Forbes

Raiders coach still not For many NFL fans, only losses will bring them Luck saying wholl start at QB
By Antonio Gonzalez

By Josh Dubow

OAKLAND Jason Campbells broken collarbone easily could have derailed what appeared to be a promising season for the Oakland Raiders. Instead of putting his teams hopes on the arm of backup Kyle Boller, coach Hue Jackson responded boldly and sacriced some of the future to bring in a quarterback with a much more impressive pedigree in Carson Palmer. Hue Jackson The move shocked many around the NFL and sent a clear message to Jacksons locker room that he truly does believe in his mantra that the time is now. We kind of got the sense that they were ready to go with it, trying to get to the play-

offs and win that championship, defensive tackle Tommy Kelly said. Man, you cant complain as a player. You know the mans going to do what hes got to do to make your team better. The answer to whether Carson Palmer the deal to send a 2012 rst-round pick and a second-rounder in 2013 that could become another rst if the Raiders make it to the AFC title game in one of the next two years will pay off wont come for a little bit. But the rst test is Sunday when the Raiders (4-2) host the AFC West rival Kansas City Chiefs (2-3) in their nal game before their bye. Jackson did not commit to a starter during the week, as Palmer and Boller shared rstteam snaps in practice. Theres a chance both

STANFORD The last couple of weeks have been brutal for Nick Wright and his followers. The lifelong Kansas City Chiefs fan and current radio host has watched, much to his dismay, as his beloved NFL team did the last thing he wanted them to do. The Chiefs actually won twice. We were on the cusp and about to go full throttle with something great, said Wright, who hosts an afternoon drive-time show on 610KCSP. They really took the wind out of everything. While his logic might seem backward, Wright is not alone in his feelings. For fans in places where the playoffs will likely never come this season, about the only thing left to cheer for is more failure. Waiting at the end of the most miserable year in pro football is Andrew Luck, the Heisman Trophy favorite from Stanford who turned down a chance to be the NFL drafts No. 1 pick to return for one more season. He is considered almost unanimously by scouts as the best quarterback prospect in years, drawing comparisons to Peyton

Manning and even John Elway out of college, exceeding both with hype in the Internet age. Beleaguered fans, dreaming of a franchise-changing quarterback, have even come up with a slogan: Suck for Luck. He is so far ahead of Andrew Luck every quarterback coming out of college in more than a decade and its not even close, NFL draft consultant Gil Brandt said. He can take a team to the Super Bowl. Looking at his makeup, theres nothing not to like. What makes Luck such a cant miss? Start with the perfect pedigree for the position. Hes the son of former NFL quarterback and current West Virginia athletic director, Oliver Luck. He has all the physical tools: a strong arm, eet footwork and precision passing. His work ethic has drawn praise and so have his smarts. Luck earned valedictorian honors at his Houston high school and will have an architecture degree from Stanford this spring. He matured

Both Aragon coach Steve Sell and Woodside coach Steve Nicolopulos must have been feeling cases of deja vu Friday night in Redwood City. Aragon, which led Woodside by 15 in the fourth quarter, had a chance to put the Wildcats away, much like the Dons did against Sequoia two weeks ago. But the Cherokees rallied for a 32-28 win. Last week, Woodside scored 14 points in the nal 96 seconds to stun Sequoia, 42-35. So with about the same amount of time remaining Friday night, the Wildcats thoughts had to drift to last week. Neither scenario, however, played out. The Dons defense held rm to record the 35-20 win. With a quarterback that good and a receiver that good, you have to cash in your chances, said Sell, referring to Woodsides Ricki Hoffer and Byron Castillo. (Considering) how Woodside won last week, I know they have to repower to do it. Woodside, however, just could not stop Aragon ground attack. Add in a number of key mistakes and it had Nicolopulos wondering what could have been. We shot ourselves in the foot a couple times, Nicolopulos said. [Aragon] got ahead. We couldnt stop them and they ground us up. Aragon (2-1 PAL Ocean, 6-1 overall) rushed for 323 yards, led by fullback Victor Jimenez. Much as theyve done all year, the Dons had a plethora of running backs carry the ball, seven in all. Friday night, it was Jimenezs turn to have a big night as he nished with 105 yards and three touchdowns on 21 carries. Victor is a very good athlete. He cares about the team a great deal, Sell said. Credit to all the running backs. They never say Boo

about carries. Woodside (1-2, 3-2-1) countered with Hoffer and Castillo. The two combined for all 20 of the Wildcats points. Hoffer had a 1-yard sneak for a score and then hooked up with Castillo for two others one a 70-yard catchand-run and the other a 12-yard score. Castillo nished with six catches for 136 yards and Hoffer was 16 for 30 for 269 yards. Woodside was hamstrung, however, by the fact it was missing ve starters. The turning points of the game came in the rst quarter. With Aragon driving deep into Woodside territory, Castillo picked off a pass and returned it 85 yards for an apparent touchdown. The Wildcats, however, were called for a personal foul on the return, negating the score. Did it change the complexion of the game? It could have, Nicolopulos said. I dont know if that was a real penalty. Well have to see the lm. Woodside ran two plays before Aragon defensive back Aldo Severson intercepted a pass to set up the Dons rst score of the game. Aragon drove 46 yards on nine plays, with Jimenez bulling into the end zone from eight yards out to put the Dons up 7-0. Aragon was going into for a 14-0 lead when the Dons fumbled the ball away at the goal line. Woodsides Gino Cockrum scooped up the loose ball and returned it to mideld. The Wildcats offense did the rest, going 51 yards on eight plays, with Hoffer scoring on a 1yard run. Aragon went up 14-7 just before halftime, taking nearly ve minutes off the clock in the process. Davarian Redd scored from six yards out with less than 24 seconds left in the half to cap a 11-play, 76-yard drive. Woodside tied the score at 14 on its rst drive of the third quarter. After picking up an initial rst down, the Aragon defense brought the house on a blitz, from which Hoffer

Harbaugh has 49ers off to best start since 1998

By Janie McCauley

SANTA CLARA Jim Harbaugh parted the heavy red 49ers curtains separating the locker room from meeting and training areas and peeked out, on patrol for any stragglers. One minute! San Franciscos coach announced. Time to work. It was late morning Monday, after a long ight home from yet a third comefrom-behind road win this time a 25-19 thriller against the previously unbeaten Detroit Lions. Harbaugh, dressed in his standard uniform of khaki slacks and a black 49ers sweatshirt, encountered Ray McDonald and asked how the defensive end was doing. Then, a quick check of the bathroom to see if anybody else was left. Its not bye week around here. Its improvement week, as Harbaugh prefers to put it. In a short time running this once-proud franchise, Harbaugh has shown improvement, all right. He

has shown he can at out coach. And motivate and inspire. While nobody questions whos in charge, Harbaugh likes to be just one of the guys. He sits back Jim Harbaugh with his players on the plane rather than in rst class where he always has a seat. Its all working wonderfully so far. San Francisco has a new team to cheer after the Giants captured the citys hearts with an improbable run to the World Series title last October. The Niners are 5-1 and leading the NFC West, quite a change from their 05 start only a year ago under thencoach Mike Singletary. Harbaugh has this bunch believing and buying into his system, his approach, his enthusiastic nature in every aspect of the job including

walking right into the locker room himself to round up his men. Whos got it better than us? Nobody! he hollers along with the players. The 49ers get a kick out of his highenergy antics. Like the now infamous handshake controversy after last Sundays win in the Motor City. Harbaugh grabbed the hand of Lions coach Jim Schwartz too hard and then gave him a rm slap on the back, and a furious Schwartz chased him down before the two were separated. When theres somebody who brings something like that to the table, it gives you, I dont know if its condence or if it just gives that joy in going out and playing that hard, punter Andy Lee said. You want to go out and play for this guy. That seems to be the sentiment throughout San Franciscos upbeat, winning locker room. The fracas at Ford Field happened moments after Harbaugh emphatically

untucked his shirt and jumped for joy. He has all kinds of quirks and, so far, they are working to a tee. He pulls out his shirt after games as a tribute of sorts to some hardworking uncles in Ohio he used to watch go about their daily lives. Its a mentality that when we work we tuck our shirts in. When work is over we untuck them, Harbaugh said. And when we win, we celebrate. Thats the theme and message behind that. It goes back a ways. I had some uncles that lived in Ohio that worked a blue-collar job. And when they came home from their work, untucked their shirts, sit on the couch, put the feet up on the coffee table, and eat some pizza and drink a beer. Those were good times. Those were good times to be a little kid and just watch them do that. So, weve kind of taken that approach, that theme here. A former NFL quarterback himself, Harbaugh is getting the most from Alex Smith. The 2005 No. 1 overall draft

pick out of Utah has nally exhibited the kind of steady, smart play Harbaugh believed he still had in him. Smith insists he is simply being himself and not trying to do too much, and Harbaughs guidance has helped a great deal in that process. Team president Jed York is coming off looking like a genius, and same goes for general manager Trent Baalke. They wooed Harbaugh away from nearby Stanford on a $25 million, veyear deal. Nobody can argue hes earning his hefty paycheck each Sunday and every day in between. Money aside, Harbaugh is a proven winner who has taken his success turning around Stanford and brought that swagger to the next level along with several familiar faces from the former Cardinal coaching staff, such as defensive coordinator Vic Fangio and offensive coordinator Greg Roman. So much for the 49ers needing some time to adjust to a new man in charge after a lockout.

As bring back Curt Young as pitching coach

By Janie McCauley

OAKLAND Bob Melvin is bringing back a familiar face to guide the Athletics pitchers. Pitching coach Curt Young is leaving the Boston Red Sox to return to Oakland and work under Melvin, who received a three-year deal in September to be the clubs permanent manager. The As announced Friday that Young had signed a one-year deal to rejoin the club that originally drafted him in the fourth round in 1981. Melvin wont have to worry one bit about Young getting up to speed with the staff. The As gured the timing was right to reach out to Young with the uncertainty of Bostons eld staff after manager Terry Francona was let go last month. Its great for a number of reasons, Melvin said in a phone interview Friday. One, his history with the organization and Curt Young he is one of the more respected pitching coaches in the game. We knew it would be difcult to get him but we thought it was a good time to ask. Were thrilled to get him. His familiarity with the organization and the pitchers was a comfort for me. The 51-year-old Young, who pitched 10 of his 11 big league seasons for the As, left Oakland last year for a stint in Boston after spending 23 years in the As organization. He guided the 2010 group that had an AL-best 3.56 ERA and a league-leading 17 shutouts while holding opponents to a .245 batting average. During Youngs tenure from 2004-2010, As pitchers led the American League with a 4.03 ERA and held opponents to an AL-low .257 average while allowing the fewest home runs (1,062) in the league. Young spent four years as a minor league coach in the organization before becoming pitching coach. Melvin and Young spent a short time as teammates during the 1992 season with Kansas City. They have golfed together, too. This move provides Bob with not only an experienced pitching coach on his staff but also someone who has a lot of experience specically with the organization and with the pitchers on this team, As assistant general manager David Forst said. On a personal level, Curt has always been well-liked by everyone in Oakland, and itll be nice to have him back on our side this season. Also Friday, the As said they named Mike Henriques strength and conditioning coach for 2012.

Sharks 4, Devils 3 SO
game a memorable one. We wanted this to start the road trip out right, said Joe Pavelski, who forced the overtime by taking a pass from Thornton and beating Johan Hedberg with 32.4 seconds left in regulation. We didnt take care of business at home when we had the chances. We had our chances and we tied the game up 2-2. We want to get the next one but it didnt happen. Guys didnt drop down. We kept saying wed nd a way. The Sharks rallied three times in the contest, from decits of 2-0, 3-2 and then a 1-0 disadvantage in the shootout after Ilya Kovalchuk converted for New Jersey and Pavelski missed the net. There was a little bit of frustration, Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. It wasnt smooth of those things, we have to turn the tide. We have to be that play ahead. We need to make some of those things happen for us. It was a key stretch considering the Panthers played to par with the Tigers the rest of the way. After a Joe Mahe interception stalled a late second-quarter drive, the Panthers didnt give up and cut the lead to seven points right before the half with Navas carrying the rock to the house from two yards out. Burlingame actually outgained the Tigers 197-154 in the rst half, and down seven, theyd get the ball coming out of halftime. But the Panthers couldnt do anything with that rst drive of the second half. The Tigers on the other hand, drove right down the eld, aiding by a 41-yard run by Tanner Piccolotti, which set up Forbes third rushing touchdown. Navas would throw an interception on the next drive which Terra Nova converted into seven plays, Parodi said. We dont expect there to be a dropoff. When someone goes down and you step in, thats when kids show what they are made of. That rst half was a not a good half of football for us at all. It got worse for the Knights right before the half when Lasala scored his third touchdown on the afternoon, carrying the ball 13 yards for the 28-7 lead. During the week of practice, we watched a lot of lm, Selli said. And there were some things we were trying to do. We wanted to confused them a bit by changing out looks up front. I wanted to make sure we started the game off strong. Last year, they came out fast. This year, I felt we needed to come on a better foot. Carlmont outgained the Knights 131-74 in the rst half. The second half was all about control again, with Egan capping the drive with a 14yard run to put the Dons up 35-14 with 6:51 to play in the game. Woodside nally got its offense in gear again as the Wildcats went 61 yards on just six plays in less than two minutes. Castillos 12yard scoring catch cut the Wildcats decit to 35-20 with just over ve minutes to play.


Sharks celebrate Thorntons 1,000th game with win


NEWARK, N.J. Riding a three-game losing streak and down two goals to the New Jersey Devils despite having a wide margin in shots, the San Jose Sharks could easily have given in to the frustration. They didnt and started playing desperate hockey. It paid off. Michal Handzus and Ryane Clowe scored shootout goals and the Sharks opened a sixgame trip with a 4-3 victory on Friday night, marking captain Joe Thorntons 1,000 NHL

going. As coaches we could feel it. As the night went on and we got the two quick goals, we started to believe again that it could be done. We felt the frustration come back after the third goal but we stuck with it. Its a good sign for our team. Zach Parise, who scored on a second-period penalty shot to give New Jersey its 2-0 lead, had a chance to put the Devils ahead 2-0 in the shootout, but goalie Antti Niemi stopped his backhander. It was the same type of shot Parise used to score on the penalty shot. points shortly after on a 14-yard touchdown run by Forbes, who had 50 yards rushing to go with his 199 yards passing. Burlingame had some ght in them though. Another long drive produced their third touchdown when Cameron Webb scored from three yards out and Grahams touchdown catch came with 49 seconds left in the game. The Panthers did rush for 305 yards despite the loss. Yet, Philipopoulos knows that his team is running out of time, and running out of games. CCS starts now for us, he said. Were going to move forward. We have a huge game against Jefferson (next week). Its huge because, there are four teams that get in, they dont have a win, we dont have a win. And between us, Kings Academy and Jefferson, its going to be one of us as that fourth team. And were going to do everything we can to make sure its us. for the Scots. Carlmont rushed for a 138 yards in the second half and, most importantly, shut down the Knights in the third quarter to keep that threetouchdown lead heading into the games nal frame. With 5:48 left in the game, the Scots all but sealed the deal on a 4-yard touchdown run by Harris, his second of the day. Hillsdale had a couple of quick strikes left in them. With 4:40 left, Salazar scored a 17-yard touchdown to cut it to 35-14. A minute-forty later, Carter, who had returned from his injury, scored on a 6-yard run. Hillsdales ensuing onside kick attempt was recovered by the Scots, who ran out the clock the rest of the way for the win. Aragon was poised to put the nal nail in the cofn, but fumbled the ball away at the Woodside 19, giving the Wildcats a last glimmer of hope, which quickly faded. Too many mistakes, Sell said. Said Nicolopulos: I knew it would be tough to coming back after last weeks (exhilarating) game. Its hard to get up again.

Continued from page 11
said, who nished 17 of 21 for 199 yards passing. I dont think they stopped us, I think we stopped ourselves and thats the big thing for us. This whole year we havent played to our potential, the whole season, offensively. We have yet to have our best game. Thats a scary thought considering the way the Tigers have shown they can move the football. On Friday, the Panthers came out and intercepted Forbes on the fourth play from scrimmage at their own 2-yard line. The Panthers then would move the ball methodically down the eld on an impressive 13-play, 98-yard drive that ate up about six minutes worth of clock and gave them a 7-0 lead.

The start looked promising, in large part because against an offense like Terra Novas, keeping them off the eld and controlling the football and the clock are key. The Tigers responded on the ensuing kickoff, with Elias Vargas taking the kick from the 2 and returning it 98 yards for the touchdown. The play seemed to deate the Panthers because it began a stretch of six minutes where the Tigers would put up 21 points on the home team. After a three-and-out, it took the Tigers nine plays to nd the end zone again, with Forbes scoring his rst of four rushing touchdowns on a 2-yard keeper. Three plays after a Burlingame punt, it was Forbes again, strolling in from seven yards out to make it 21-7 with 8:41 left in the second quarter. All season, weve felt like were so close, Philipopoulos said. But its a play here, a play there, a penalty here, a penalty there. Its just one odd points per game, Regan said, so we knew we couldnt let them come out and let them get at us rst. We needed to come at them. Coach preached to us all week, no big plays, restrict their big plays. We knew they had athletes and we needed to minimize the big plays. Carlmont was stout on defense, especially in that rst half. After taking a two-touchdown lead, they stopped the Knights on a three-and-out and then on a four-and-out. Hillsdale was dealt a pretty big blow early, when Damien Carter aggravated a nagging ankle injury. The former Daily Journal Athlete of the Week was a non-factor for most of the rst half. Hillsdale head coach Mike Parodi said his absence shouldnt have been as big of a factor. I love Damien with all my heart, hes a baller, but we expect our next guy to step in and make a would-be tackle and raced down the left sideline for a 70-yard score. The Dons responded by scoring three straight touchdowns to take a 35-14 lead. Jimenez scored on a pair of 1-yard plunges on the Dons next two possessions. A James Egan interception gave the Dons the ball back around mideld and they promptly scored

us and it kind of changed the complexion of the game. I think it was even bigger that we were able to go out there and get a stop (on Hillsdales next drive) after they scored pretty easily on us. That stop came on an interception by Regan at the Carlmont 44 yard line. The pick proved to be even bigger when the Scots marched the ball down eld on eight plays and scored on a 3-yard touchdown run by Marquise Harris less than two minutes into the second quarter. Coming in, we knew they were averaging 28-

Cards,Rangers hoping to go batty

By Ben Walker

ARLINGTON, Texas Strolling behind the batting cage, Matt Holliday watched his St. Louis teammates hit away Friday and offered a simple tip. Get a good swing! he hollered. Great advice for anyone with a Louisville Slugger in hand at this World Series. Despite the presence of Josh Hamilton, Albert Pujols, Nelson Cruz and other top boppers, the Cardinals and Texas Rangers have hardly dented the scoreboard while splitting the rst two games. So far, a total of just eight runs. The last time there were fewer through the opening two games at a Series? Try 1950, when Joe DiMaggio and the New York Yankees combined with Philadelphia for four. A lot of people thought this was going to be an offensive World Series, Texas shortstop Elvis Andrus observed before an off-day workout.

Blame the drought on a few factors: raw weather at Busch Stadium, good pitching and, perhaps most significantly, hitters facing arms theyve never seen before. Both teams have ailed away at the plate, chasing sliders and curves that bounced, shattering bats and seeming to guess wrong on what pitches were coming next. We need to give good at-bats and get deeper and quit swinging at balls out of the strike zone, Mike Napoli said. Napoli has hit the lone home run of the Series. He connected off Chris Carpenter, but maybe he had an edge Napoli had been 3 for 3 lifetime against the Cardinals ace going into Game 1. Fresh off their two-run rally in the ninth inning and a 2-1 win in Game 2, the Rangers start Matt Harrison on Saturday night at Rangers Ballpark. Kyle Lohse will pitch for the Cardinals. Its a tough place to pitch, especially when you see those flags blowing in. It usually means that jet stream is going to right-center,

Elvis Andrus

People though this was going to be an offensive World Series.

Lohse said. I think everyone in the league knows that. Each team adds a designated hitter, with the AL rule in effect at Texas. Cardinals manager Tony La Russa will make Lance Berkman the DH and put Allen Craig already with a pair of key pinch-hit RBI singles in right eld. The Rangers will likely use Michael Young at DH, move Napoli to rst base and put Yorvit Torrealba at catcher. At this point, it might take more than a wind tunnel to help the hitters. Texas is batting only .186, St. Louis is stuck at .203. Hamilton and

Pujols are hitless, and Cruz has been held to a mere single after tearing through the AL championship series. On Friday, Cruz gave the Hall of Fame the bat he used to hit a grand slam in the ALCS. It was cracked maybe Texas and St. Louis need new timber, too. It seemed fitting, in fact, that when Texas scored those two runs Thursday night to even the Series, both crossed on sacrice ies. Each team has scored four runs overall. Back in 1983, Baltimore and Philadelphia also combined for eight through two games its more than 60 years since the total was lower than this October. I think honestly we got out of our approach a little bit, maybe a little over aggressive trying to create things that necessarily werent there, said Ian Kinsler, whose bloop single and daring steal keyed the Texas comeback. If we can just relax and play our style of baseball, let the game come to us, well be all right. Rangers outelder David Murphy

hopes it plays out that way, eventually. Its the World Series. Were going to face a guy tomorrow that most of us have never faced, if at all. Game 4 is a little different because Edwin Jackson has been in the American League enough to where most of us have probably faced him, he said. I feel like just watching the rst two games, offensively, its just a matter of who is going to make adjustments on the y. Were facing their guys that weve never before and its the same thing on their side. The pitching performances have been good, but we have condence in our offense to put up runs, as well, he said. So does Texas hitting coach Scott Coolbaugh. He was promoted from the Triple-A job when Thad Bosley was red two months into his rst year with the team. Coolbaugh watched Young swing through strike three from Jaime Garcia in Game 2, then saw Adrian Beltre wave at a couple of low offspeed deliveries.

Fox, Telemundo get NBC Sports relocating to Connecticut U.S. World Cup rights
By Stephen Singer

By Graham Dunbar

ZURICH FIFA cashed in on a $1.2 billion bonanza from United States broadcasters Friday, striking World Cup deals with Fox, Telemundo and Spanish language radio. Fox won the English-language U.S. television rights for the 2018 and 2022 tournaments, outbidding incumbent ESPN and NBC for soccers showpiece tournament. Fox agreed to pay around $425 million for the two-tournament package, a person familiar with the bidding told The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because the gure was not made public. It also secured English-language radio rights. ESPN paid $100 million to show the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and the 2014 event in Brazil. The World Cup will be held in Russia in 2018 and in Qatar in 2022. Telemundo paid around $600 million for the

Spanish-language deal, the person said. Telemundo, which is owned by NBC Universal, also defeated a rights holder, Univision, which had paid $325 million for the 2010-2014 package. Spanish-language radio rights went to Futbol de Primera Radio for more than $100 million. The deals were agreed to on an important day for FIFA President Sepp Blatter. He revealed the rst steps in a wide-ranging reform program he initiated after a troubled year that was peppered with scandals implicating some of his most senior colleagues within world soccers ruling body. We are happy because we are moving forward, Blatter said, after signing off on the U.S. deals during a meeting of his executive committee. Before the end of the year a big chunk of the concerns we had in the past ... will be set behind us. The American contracts cover tournament nals in all FIFA competitions from 2015-22, also giving Fox the Womens World Cup in 2015 and 19.

HARTFORD, Conn. NBC Sports has agreed to move from New York City to Stamford to take advantage of tax breaks, adding to a growing lm and TV presence in the southwestern Connecticut city, a state ofcial said Friday. The agreement, which could bring hundreds of jobs, would be part of Gov. Dannel P. Malloys signature economic development program, according to the ofcial, who spoke on condition of anonymity because Malloy and Democratic leaders of the legislature hope to announce a deal next week. Chris McCloskey, a spokesman for NBC Sports, and a spokeswoman for Malloy declined to comment. Stamford made a strong play during the 1980s and 90s for nancial services companies that do business in New York City, just 35 miles away. More recently, it has branched out into entertainment, luring production companies with lower taxes and more space than producers can nd in New York. In 2009, Maury Povichs Maury left New

York for Stamford, joined by two other NBC Universal properties, The Jerry Springer Show and The Steve Wilkos Show, which relocated from Chicago. The city also has become home to the headquarters of WWE and the sports network Versus. We have a real cluster and its growing, said Kevin Segalla, chief executive of the Connecticut Film Center, a Stamford company that provides production and nancial services and facilities for the lm and TV industries. Segalla, a former New York resident, said he left the city reluctantly, but he does not regret it. He said the rail and highway access to Stamford makes it easier to reach from Manhattan than parts of some outer boroughs such as Queens. This is a real city. Theres diversity here. The arts are here, he said. Malloy, who was the mayor of Stamford before he was elected as governor last year, negotiated to bring NBC Sports to Connecticut as part of his First Five initiative, which is intended to consolidate various tax credits to draw the rst ve businesses that invest $25 million in Connecticut and create 200 jobs over ve years.


Weekend Oct. 22-23, 2011

describe what Luck is doing on the eld, so he points his index ngers apart on the table to explain what he sees on lm. Its just mathematically funny. You would say theres no way he gets the ball from here to there before this guy can go from here to there, Shaw said, moving his hands together to show the defense closing. Its just phenomenal. Theres about three of those in each game you cant coach. Hes one of the few guys on the planet that can do it. Nothing might say more about Lucks talent than the fact some fans want their teams to tank for him. Chris Joseph, who runs a popular blog called FinsNation, didnt know how to act Monday night when Miami played the rival Jets. There is not a more hated team for most Dolphins fans than the Jets, although a victory wouldve meant taking a step back in the race for the No. 1 pick. The only relief came at the end of the night when the Dolphins remained winless. I came to the realization that we stink. So if were going to stink, lets really, really stink. Lets be horrible, Joseph said. It feels blasphemous. But

I have to keep reminding myself to think big picture. One bad season could be bring 10 or 12 great ones. Fans who want teams to lose wont nd any public support from the franchises they love. Contracts in the NFL are not guaranteed, and tanking serves no purpose for players who want jobs next season. And along with coaches, theyre competitors, and the mere suggestion of intentionally losing is offensive. Those players go out there every single week and put themselves at risk, Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said. That part of it, that angers me a little. Added Broncos defensive end Robert Ayers: That really (ticks) me off. Were going to try to win no matter what. The Stanford quarterback agrees. He has been aware of the Suck for Luck campaign by NFL fans that has spread on radio, social networks and message boards for months. Since he was rst asked at Bay Area media day on Aug. 1, Luck hasnt wavered on his opinion about the campaign. That seems a little stupid to me, he said.

under the tutelage of former Stanford coach and NFL quarterback Jim Harbaugh and has been running a prostyle system with all the same vocabulary of NFL offenses for three years. I would venture to say hes doing as much, if not more, than most NFL quarterbacks at the line of scrimmage, said current Cardinal coach David Shaw, the former offensive coordinator. Luck has thrown for 1,719 yards with 18 touchdowns and three interceptions this season with two of those turnovers coming on tipped balls by his receiver to lead No. 7 Stanford (6-0) to the nations longest winning streak at 14 games entering Saturdays matchup against No. 22 Washington (5-1). Luck has been given complete autonomy calling plays when the offense runs a no-huddle system, responsibilities almost unheard of for a college quarterback, and rare even in the pros. Shaw has run out of words to

team snaps in practice. Theres a chance both could play Sunday. Whatever decision I make somebody is going to go in there and play well, Jackson said. Theyve done a great job in practice, but obviously somebodys got to trot out there rst and thats what well do when that time comes. After spending training camp, the preseason and the rst six weeks of the regular season in retirement in Southern California, Palmer has had to rush his way back into playing form. Theres nothing else to life right now, Palmer said. You eat and you do football stuff. Whatever it is whether its lifting, conditioning, studying, whatever it may be, watching lm. You just have to, theres such a short amount of time that you just cannot be doing enough. Oakland is counting on Palmer to carry on from where Campbell left

off before getting hurt last week against Cleveland. After eight straight years without a winning record, the Raiders nally appear to have turned the corner behind Darren McFaddens running, speedy, big-play receivers on the outside and an improving defense that has done a better job stopping the run the past two weeks. Thats why Jackson was willing to pay such a high price to get Palmer, the quarterback he believed could lead the Raiders back to the playoffs for the rst time since winning the AFC championship in 2002. It just shows you that Hue denitely wants to win, receiver Jacoby Ford said. Hes going to put us in the right position to win and hes going to bring the right guys in to win. Hes competitive. Were all behind him as far as being competitive. While the Raiders are adjusting to life without their starting quarterback, the Chiefs have had plenty of practice so far this season with dealing with serious injuries to signicant players.

Around the world

U.S. demands Pakistan action on Afghan insurgents
ISLAMABAD The United States pressed a hard case with a difcult ally during an extraordinary two-day diplomatic offensive in Pakistan, arguing on one hand that Pakistan should send its army after militants the U.S. says get special protection from the Pakistani government and on the other that Pakistan should use its inuence with Taliban militants to encourage peace in Afghanistan. Pakistan is unlikely to do either to U.S. satisfaction, leaving a critical counterterrorism partnership on uncertain terms.

Eurozone closer to cutting Greeces debts

BRUSSELS Finance ministers from the 17 euro countries agreed Friday to pay Greece its next batch of bailout loans, avoiding a potentially disastrous default, and moved closer to reducing the countrys massive debt burden. But Greeces debts are only one piece of Europes economic puzzle. The ministers meeting in Brussels were also struggling with two more complicated and arguably more important issues: boosting the repower of the eurozones (euro) 440 billion ($607 billion) bailout fund to keep the crisis from spreading and forcing weak banks to increase their capital buffers as a defense against market turmoil. A European Union ofcial said ministers had made progress on strengthening the banks, and that a plan should be ready for a summit of EU leaders Sunday. He spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss condential negotiations. However, more work remained to be done on Greece and the bailout needs a substantial cut to its debt load. The ndings of a report from Greeces international debt inspectors piled more pressure on European nance chiefs to nd a solution for the country, whose troubles kicked off the crisis almost two years ago. According to the report, Athens wont be able to raise money on nancial markets until 2021 unless it is allowed to write off more of its debt load. If that doesnt happen, the country would need hundreds of billions of euros in new bailout loans. A person familiar with the report said a tentative deal reached with banks in July to give Greece easier terms on its bonds would still leave it with a huge debt load of 152 percent of economic output in 2020. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the report is condential. Germany is pushing for a revision of the July deal to have Greeces private creditors take bigger losses of 50 percent to 60 percent and reduce its debt to some 120 percent of GDP by 2020.

Thailand counting cost as flood seeps into Bangkok

BANGKOK Floodwaters that have devastated Thailands industry and agriculture seeped into outer Bangkok on Friday as the crowded capitals residents braced for the impact, uncertain if they will soon be hopping over puddles or fording waist-high streams just outside their windows. Thailands prime minister urged residents of the city of 9 million people to get ready to move their belongings to higher ground.

fund, the European Financial Stability Facility. Decisions on those two fronts were not expected until a second summit on Wednesday. Greek Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos welcomed the news that Athens would get the next (euro) 8 billion ($11 billion) installment, calling it a positive step.

21 ouster. It appeared Friday that he was still at large: some government ministers had said he was wounded and in custody in a hospital in the city of Zlitan, but a military ofcial at the hospital, Hakim al-Kisher, denied he was there. In Misrata, residents crowded into long lines to get a chance to view the body of Gadha, which was laid out on a mattress on the oor of an emptied-out vegetable and onions freezer at a local shopping center. The body had apparently been stowed in the freezer in an attempt to keep it out of the public eye, but once the location was known, that intention was swept away in the overwhelming desire of residents to see the man they so deeply despised. Men, women and children led in to take their picture with the body. The sites guards had even organized separate visiting hours for families and single men. We want to see the dog, some chanted. Gadhas 69-year-old body was stripped to the waist, his torso and arms streaked with dried blood. Bullet wounds in the chest, abdomen and left side of the head were visible.

Gadhafi put on display in shopping center freezer

By Kim Gamel and Rami Al-Shaheibi

MISRATA, Libya Moammar Gadhas blood-streaked body was on display in a commercial freezer at a shopping center Friday as Libyan authorities argued about what to do with his remains and questions deepened over ofcial accounts of the longtime dictators death. New video emerged of his violent, chaotic last moments, showing ghters beating him as they drag him away. Nearly every aspect of Thursdays killing of Gadha was mired in confusion, a sign of the difculties ahead for Libya. Its new rulers are disorganized, its people embittered and divided. But the ruling National Transitional Council said it would declare the countrys liberation on Saturday, the starting point for a timetable that calls for a new interim government within a month and elections within eight months. The top U.N. rights chief raised concerns that Gadhafi may have been shot to death after being captured alive. The fate of his body seemed tied up in squabbles among Libyas factions, as ghters from

Death energizes Syrian and Yemeni protesters

An Anti-Gadha ghter reacts during Friday prayers at a mosque in Sirte,Libya.

Misrata a city brutally besieged by Gadhas forces during the civil war seemed to claim ownership of it, forcing the delay of a planned burial Friday. Also muddled was the fate of Seif al-Islam Gadha, the only Gadha son who stayed in Libya and reportedly survived after his fathers Aug.

BEIRUT Energized by the killing of Libyas Moammar Gadha, thousands of protesters in Syria and Yemen poured into the streets Friday and said their longtime rulers will be next. Syrian President Bashar Assads security forces opened re on protesters, killing at least 24 people nationwide, according to activists. It did not stop the crowds from chanting, Your turn is coming, Bashar. Yemenis delivered a similar message to President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who survived an assassination attempt in June. Gadha is gone, and youre next, oh butcher, they chanted. The armed rebellion that drove Gadha from power with NATO air support appears to have breathed new life into the uprisings elsewhere in the Arab world.

Our souls, our blood we sacrice for you, Libya! Syrian protesters chanted Friday. Gadhafi was killed Thursday under still-murky circumstances, although he apparently was dragged from hiding in a drainage pipe, begging for his life. His brutal end less than two months after he lost control of his oil-rich nation follows the ouster of Tunisias Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, who has been driven into exile, and of Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, who is in jail and facing charges of complicity in the deaths of more than 800 protesters. All three uprisings have given Syrian protesters hope. One banner read, Ben Ali ed, Mubarak is in jail, Gadha is killed, Assad? The uprisings in Syria and Yemen have proved remarkably resilient even as the governments relentlessly try to crush the revolts.

Marthaone of years Six-letter most haunting films

By Chloee Weiner

By Christy Lemire


f there were ever an appropriate time for children to begin their obsession with college and their futures, most would agree its ones junior year of high school. Junior year is critical, they say; the time when parents really start to put on the pressure, when it seems like everyone has forgotten all but six letters: SAT and GPA. So, yes, as a junior, I spent my Saturday with a group of incredibly stressed students and their even more anxious parents. Yes, I spent my weekend with a group of people frighteningly concerned with school admission processes. Yes, I spent this time with a group of fth graders and their families. Theres a program at my school called Crystal Ambassadors. Those who participate, while clad in matching navy and maroon jackets, are responsible for sharing their experience at our school with prospective students and their families. Once a month during application season, I can be found sporting one of these infamous jackets at a CSUS open house. The open houses are fairly standard, but each event ends with the opportunity for parents and students to question a panel of Crystal Ambassadors. While the more typical fth grader was concerned with our weekly lunch menu or lack of recess, there were a surprising amount of parents who were more curious about what college I plan on attending or if I was able to balance a challenging workload with an impressive-looking amount of extracurricular activities.

Johnny is back at the agency, MI7 (hardy har har), after a few years away with a bit of a stigma attached to him. Seems he massively messed up an assignment in Mozambique, and his new boss, Pegasus (Gillian Anderson, trotting out her at British accent again), lets him know she wont tolerate those kinds of mistakes. For his next job, Johnny must nd out who is behind a plot to assassinate the Chinese premier. And even though hes been training in the remote mountains of Tibet all this time (in an admittedly amusing montage), Johnny still isnt quite u p for the challenge. Director Oliver Parkers lm relies on much of the same tired, repetitive spy spoofs as the Austin Powers movies, and much of the same false condence in the face of absurd danger. That any of this works, ever, is a testament to Atkinsons skills as a comedian. You can sense him slumming and straining but hes so gifted physically, he makes pretty idiotic material more enjoyable than it should be. Slapstick requires a delicacy and nesse that Atkinson most certainly possesses, but the writing just isnt there. Rosamund Pike brings her usual combination of beauty and smarts to the role of the agencys psychologist, and manages to provide a bit more substance than was available to her on the page. But even given her formidable presence, its hard to believe that her character would ever give Johnny the time of day, much less fall for him. Dominic West, meanwhile, co-stars as a fellow agent who is so obviously sleazy and menacing from the start, theres nowhere else for his character to go. Johnny English isnt reborn so much as reheated, and his aim hasnt improved after all these years. Johnny English Reborn, a Universal Pictures release, is rated PG for mild action violence, rude humor, some language and brief sensuality. Running time: 101 minutes. One and a half stars out of four.

Englishfires wildly at targets

By Christy Lemire

You probably werent clamoring for a sequel to the 2003 British spy parody Johnny English, which was far more successful overseas than it was in the United States. Still, heres Johnny English Reborn, again starring Rowan Atkinson. As the secret agent of the title, Johnny thinks hes as suave and resourceful as James Bond. Mostly, though, he bumbles his way from one situation to the next with the help of all the obligatory weapons and gadgets, none of which is terribly clever or creative.

Forzagets your motor running

By Lou Kesten

Im not what youd call a car guy. Ive been driving the same set of wheels for more than 10 years. The only maintenance chore I can handle myself is relling the gas tank. I dont need to go from zero to 60 in 6 seconds; Id rather have a good stereo. And yet, Im a sucker for racing games like Microsofts Forza Motorsport 4 (for the Xbox 360, $59.99). Sure, its built to satisfy the most demanding gearhead, but its accessible enough for even the most fainthearted Sunday driver. At its easiest level, Forza 4 practically drives the car for you, adjusting your braking and steering so you dont hurtle off curves. You start off the World Tour solo campaign with a low-horsepower vehicle (in my case it was a Volkswagen Fox), but once you start winning events you earn faster rides. If you turn off the computerized assistance you earn more experience points, which gets you behind the wheel of high-performance Ferraris and Lamborghinis faster. World Tour bounces giddily around the globe, presenting a nice variety of tracks from America,

Europe and Asia. One race may be on a high-speed Japanese oval; the next may be on a twisting path across Spains Montserrat. There are a few gimmicky events knocking down bowling pins or slaloming through trafc cones but most of the time youll be testing your mettle (and metal) against a dozen or so other cars in your vehicle class. Truly hardcore speed freaks will want to get on Xbox Live and challenge other humans, and Forza 4 offers as robust an assortment of online modes as one could ask for. Naturally, you can race against up to 15 other drivers in relatively straightforward events. A new Rivals mode lets you challenge your friends best times even if theyre not online. And you can indulge in sillier, tag-like games where youre just trying to avoid or create contact with other cars. There are hundreds of cars from more than 80 manufacturers. If youre the type who drools over car magazines, youll spend hours in the Autovista showroom, where you can walk around a vehicle, open the door and take a seat in the cockpit. Jeremy Clarkson from the BBCs Top Gear talks you through the highlights, and his enthusiasm for everything on four wheels is infectious.

you may not even actively perceive as youre watching the film; rather, he creates a cumulative sensation that sneaks up on you subconsciously. Hes an exciting filmmaker to watch, having made a movie about a tawdry, tabloid-ready topic without injecting an ounce of sensationalism. And his last shot is tantalizingly ambiguous, and a sign of real confidence. But Olsen is just as much of a discovery. She has a beautiful, open face that seems placid, but also subtly conveys her characters torment. At times she resembles Maggie Gyllenhaal or perhaps a young Faye Dunaway, with her deep-set eyes and prominent cheekbones, but she has a fascinating, mysterious presence all her own. Its a brave, thrilling performance in a film that is far and away one of the years best. Martha Marcy May Marlene, a Fox Searchlight release, is rated R for disturbing violent and sexual content, nudity and language. Running time: 101 minutes. Four stars out of four. the trend of elementary school students in collegiate garb, whether sweatshirts from Stanford or caps from Cal. Im beginning to think that there needs to be a new addition to the curriculum of schools around the country, one that redenes the standard of achievement. Id like to hear from a teacher, or from anyone really, that success is not scored out of 2400 nor measured by a scale that goes to 4.0 (or higher). Until then, maybe Ill trade my own copy of the Princeton Reviews SAT prep guide for a couple of chapter books and enjoy a dose of the 10-yearold bliss of years passed.

Lohan reports to morgue for community service

Continued from page 20
real name of Martha. Writer-director Sean Durkin seamlessly cuts back and forth in time. In the present, Martha is awkwardly trying to assimilate to normal life with Lucy and her British architect husband, Ted (Hugh Dancy), at their peaceful Connecticut lake house. But memories increasingly plague Martha of her time at the idyllic but slightly creepy farm ruled by the calmly charismatic Patrick (John Hawkes). He gave Martha a new name, Marcy May, initiated her through the same ritual all the women there endured and insisted she was his favorite when he sensed her apprehension. Hawkes is frightening without ever raising his voice; he simply radiates menace, and after very different roles in Winters Bone, Higher Ground and Contagion, he again reveals his range

LOS ANGELES Lindsay Lohans arrival at the morgue for community service Take Two had a better result Friday as the actress was quickly put to work after showing up early. News helicopters hovered over the coroners facilities and cameras greeted her black sport utility vehicle when Lohan reported for duty, one day after ofcials turned her away for being 40 minutes late to an orientation session. Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said Lindsay Lohan Lohan arrived real early Friday, completed her orientation and was put to work before 8 a.m. She had been ordered to report at the coroners facilities at 7 a.m., but Lohans publicist, Steve Honig, wrote in an email that the actress had been outside for more than an hour before it opened. Lohan must complete 16 hours of custodial work at the morgue before a Nov. 2 court hearing. She will be expected to mop oors, clean and stock bathrooms, and wash dirty sheets, coroners ofcials have said.

and versatility. Patrick makes his followers feel safe even though thats clearly the last thing they are, and Hawkes makes the character as fascinating as he is fearsome. Despite returning to a more traditional, stable life, Martha hasnt entirely left this place in her mind; vague references to being a teacher and leader suggest the brainwashing she suffered. Lucy tries to understand Marthas standoffishness, her weird behavior, but Martha is still too screwed up to let her in. Durkin doesnt judge either sister for the causes of their strained relationship, or Martha for whatever loneliness or need for acceptance might have driven her toward the cult in first place. As the psychological abuse of the past and the paranoia of the present converge and collide, Martha Marcy May Marlene builds to a gripping, terrifying climax. But Durkin achieves this effect in the most ingenious of ways: through steady camerawork and long takes, naturalistic lighting and ambient noise. He grabs you in a way ple of the families in the room. I couldnt help but notice their turned-down lips and furrowed eyebrows as we admitted that not one of us, yet, had concrete plans. I cant say I remember exactly what was going on in my head when I was 10 years old. However, Im pretty convinced it had more to do with the next Harry Potter movie than my next step toward college. I did apply to CSUS, true, but as far as I remember, the word college was never mentioned in the process. I have to wonder why it seems as though each year, parents grow more and more intense when it comes to the educational future of their children. There are plenty of logical reasons: California public schools are currently suffering from cuts, our universities are impacted, U.S. job-seekers face increasing throngs of international competitors. But these reasons do not explain

Extra figures cost $8 each. Using a plastic platform about six inches in diameter, the gures connect wirelessly to your video game system, the same way plastic instruments connect to on-screen musicians in Guitar Hero. As with other games, you still control their characters on the screen. But you need the gures, which store data and transmit characters histories to the nearest game console. Each works like a wireless thumb drive for data storage. Connect it to the system, and character has been through. So you can start playing the game at home on a Wii, grab the Spyro gure and head to a friends house. There, you can continue playing the game on the PlayStation 3 without losing all youve accomplished on the Wii version. This hasnt been possible before. Sure, theres stuff like

Activision jumps into kidsgame with Skylanders

By Barbara Ortutay

NEW YORK To impress kids these days, its not enough to make another video game. Mere action gures wont do, either. So Activision is merging the two. With Skylanders: Spyros Adventure, Activision is using some of its Guitar Hero technology in a new venture thats part handheld toy, part digital entertainment. Aimed at kids, Skylanders is among the latest and most ambitious game in a growing genre that blends a childs physical world with a video game and online media. The new game marks Activisions latest stab at a must-have holiday hit, less than a year after it killed off its iconic Guitar Hero franchise. Although Activision Blizzard Inc. still has hit titles such as Call of Duty, people are increasingly turn-

the game recognizes all that the

secret codes that kids type into a website to play with an online version of their pet. The Skylanders gures, though, become an integral part of the game because they store their characters entire history inside. Its DNA-level play, says Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. How many times have you wished you could bring toys to life? Hirshberg calls it the first true crossplatform g a m e . T h a t means you can play the game on the Wii, the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3, the Nintendo 3DS, online and on the iPhone and the iPad.

Mighty Macs follows same underdog path as team

By Kathy Matheson

IMMACULATA, Pa. Heres a sports fairy tale that never gets old: Underdog team with few resources but a lot of heart beats the odds and comes out on top. That is what actually happened to the 1971-72 womens basketball squad at tiny Immaculata College. Its also what happened to The Mighty Macs, a small-budget movie about the teams improbable national championship that overcame its own obstacles to make it to Hollywood. The lm starring Carla Gugino,

Marley Shelton, David Boreanaz and Ellen Burstyn hits theaters Friday. We really needed to be patient and believe in the story and the right distribution platform for the story, said Tim Chambers, who wrote and directed the lm. It was denitely worth the wait. The true story of the Mighty Macs has always read like a movie script. It starts in 1971 with a 23-year-old named Cathy Rush. The former high school basketball star was coaching the ragtag team at Immaculata, a struggling Catholic school for women near Philadelphia. She was barely older than her players. The Macs, who had no home court

because their eld house had burned down, practiced at local gyms and played all their games on the road. When they earned the 15th seed in the rst-ever womens U.S. collegiate championship tournament in 1972, players held rafes and sold toothbrushes to raise money for the trip. Immaculata upset three teams to reach the nals. There, the scrappy Macs faced off against nemesis West Chester in a nail-biting rematch and won. Cue the confetti. In the following years, Rush was approached many times about making the Macs Cinderella story into a movie. But every would-be produc-

tion turned into a pumpkin. So Rush was understandably wary when Chambers came to her around 2004. But she was won over by his strong backing former Philadelphia 76ers president Pat Croce is an executive producer and personal connections to the story. Chambers had grown up in the area and, as a child, saw Rush and the Mighty Macs practice at his Catholic grade schools gym. And he was taught by the same nuns who run Immaculata the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The more I was around him, the more I was convinced that if anyone

could do this, he could do it, Rush said. Filming for Our Lady of Victory the movies original title began in 2007 at Immaculata and, ironically, in the gym of nearby West Chester University. Chambers cast Katie Hayek, a former University of Miami shooting guard and theater major, as star player Trish Sharkey. But Hayek was diagnosed with cancer as cameras were set to roll. A wig, tenacious work ethic and rearranged shooting schedule helped mask the effects of chemotherapy, which Hayek said successfully treated her Hodgkins lymphoma.

Iraq war over,U.S. troops coming home

By Ben Feller

Local reactions
I applaud the president for fullling his promise to end the war in Iraq and bring home all of our troops.As our brave men and women come home,we must make sure they receive the services and help they deserve to reintegrate into civilian life. It is time for us to wind down Americas wars abroad and focus on creating jobs here at home and investing in our country. U.S.Rep.Jackie Speier,DSan Mateo I voted against the Iraq war resolution in 2002,and since then I have fought to end this war. It has cost us dearly. There have been over 4,400 U.S. lives lost and more than 30,000 U.S. soldiers wounded. Our country has spent trillions of dollars in Iraq during a profound economic downturn, and our international reputation has been needlessly tarnished by a war that should never have taken place.Ive waited a long time to hear the news that our troops will nally come home. I pay tribute to the men and women of our armed services who have served our country with honor. As they return, we should reward them with economic and educational opportunities. U.S.Rep.Anna Eshoo,DPalo Alto

WASHINGTON Americas long and deeply unpopular war in Iraq will be over by years end and all U.S. troops will denitely be home for the holidays, President Barack Obama declared Friday. Stretching more than eight years, the war cost the United States heavily: More than 4,400 members of the military have been killed, and more than 32,000 have been wounded. The nal exit date was sealed after months of intensive talks between Washington and Baghdad failed to reach agreement on conditions for leaving several thousand U.S. troops in Iraq as a training force. The U.S. also had been interested in keeping a small force to help the Iraqis deal with possible Iranian meddling. The task now is to speed the pullout of the remaining U.S. forces, nearly 40,000 in number. Staying behind in Iraq, where bombings and other violence still occur, will be some 150-200 U.S. military troops as part of embassy security, the defense attaches ofce and the ofce of security cooperation. Thats common practice but still a danger to American forces. Obama, an opponent of the war since before he took ofce, nevertheless praised the efforts of U.S. troops in Iraq. He said American soldiers would leave with their heads held high, proud of their success. For Obama, Fridays announcement capped a remarkable two days of national security successes, though theres no indication how much they will matter to re-election voters more concerned with economic woes at home. On Thursday, the president heralded the death of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadha and a day later the end to one of the most divisive conicts in U.S. history.

He did speak, though, about the string of wins on his watch none bigger than the killing of Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaida leader behind the Sept. 11, 2011 terrorist attacks. The Afghanistan war still rages, but there, too, Obama has moved to end the combat mission by the end of 2014. This was, in essence, the third time Obama had pronounced an end to the war, allowing him to remind the nation he had opposed it all along a stance that helped his White House bid in 2008. Shortly after taking ofce, Obama declared in February 2009 that the combat mission in Iraq would end by Aug. 31, 2010. And when that milestone arrived, he said it was time to turn the page on Iraq and put the focus back on building up the United States. On Friday, he said: After nearly nine years, Americas war in Iraq will be over. The U.S.-led invasion of Iraq was launched in March of 2003 after reports, later discredited, that the country was developing weapons of mass destruction. By early April, American Marines were helping Iraqis pull down a statue of Saddam Hussein in Baghdad. Saddam was captured in December of that year and executed in 2006, but the war dragged on. The ending was set in motion before Obama took ofce. In 2008, President George W. Bush approved a deal calling for all U.S. forces to withdraw by Dec. 31, 2011. At issue was whether that deal would be renegotiated to keep thousands of U.S. forces in Iraq. The Obama administration and Iraqi government spent months debating whether the United States would keep troops to maintain a training force, to provide added stability in a country where spectacular attacks still occur, and to serve as a hedge against Iran. Throughout the talks, Iraqi leaders refused to give U.S. troops immunity from prosecution in Iraqi courts, and the Americans refused to stay without that guarantee.

The key points are the quantity and quality of trees offered, Fuller said. Several residents are willing to uproot or move existing foliage themselves but others want the company to help, such as yanking out some fruitless plum trees and replace them with a better-screening variety. We want to find a good agreement with them so theyre not stuck with everything, Fuller said. Some property owners only need one tree; others are asking for four to five. The GESC estimates needing approximately 35 trees for the neighborhood removal of approximately six to 10 inappropriate trees and stumps and root blocking material. The GESC would also like In-N-Out to turn down the signs brightness by 20 percent, particularly while the trees are in their infancy, but said planting is the best route. Id point out that its not just about planting trees but replacing those necessary to provide a long-term viable solution, Fuller said. The trees will also provide a buffer when other projects finish, such as the Palo Alto Medical Foundation hospital. The resident worried about several aspects of the new business after it opened in June but the light of the sign was particularly bothersome. The GESC went so far as to threaten a lawsuit against the city if it didnt enforce the tenets of the conditional use permit which requires illumination not spill on to adjacent properties. Members said they are not anti-progress or anti-growth but also not willing to see their quality of life and property values diminished by purveyors of double cheeseburgers and fries. The sign is required to be turned off when business ends at 1 a.m. but some members responding to an informal GESC survey asking their thoughts on the sign said they just dont like it looming in the sky at any time.

GESC residents worried about the sign exemption prior to its approval but decided not to appeal because it wanted to pick its battles, Fuller said. A few respondents said they didnt know how bad it would be until the sign was erected and illuminated. The plan for a tree blockade is the latest in a list of impact-softening steps taken by InN-Out since buying the $1.6 million plot from the city for the 3,654-square-foot restaurant and 46-space parking lot. To ease possible concerns over the smell of the food, the company made the San Carlos outlet the first in the nation with air scrubbers to squelch any outside aroma. In-N-Out hired an extra sheriffs deputy out of its own pocket to provide crowd and crime control. But while those issues were ameliorated, the sign has remained a concern particularly for those on Fairfield Drive. Fuller said landscaping is a welcome answer. For example, he said, one resident who was ready to mount a legal fund to fight the sign is now content to take two trees. If you ask most of the neighborhood if the sign should go or if they want trees, theyll definitely take the trees, he said.

Oshkosh, Wis. She was the first woman to build her own plane and take that trip. Shortly after, Bauer wanted a new challenge building a two-seater plane called a Charger so she could bring a friend along for her adventures. It took about three and a half years to build the second plane. It involved enlisting the help of everyone she met along with learning many new skills. Bauer even had her girlfriends come over to help sew the wings together. Successful people like to help other people be successful. All I had to do was let people know I needed help, she said. People were often dropping by to see the woman who was building her own plane. Bauer capitalized on the opportunity often asking people what specialty they had and putting them to work. Bauer took the Oshkosh trip twice. The second time was with her son Willie Turner, vice president of operations at Hiller. She gave Turner her Fly Baby when he turned

16. He painted it red like a racing plane the kind his dad flew. Together the pair flew first to Texas, where Bauer grew up, to pick up her mom. She was 75 at the time. The three of them flew from Texas to Wisconsin. Bauers new two-seater plane had much more power than Turners Fly Baby. She says she went twice as far as me, Turner said, explaining his mom would fly ahead then circle around giving him a chance to keep up. Bauer described the outing with a smile, It was such an adventure. In five years, when Bauer celebrates her 75th birthday, she hopes to make the trip again but with her son and grandson. This time Bauer plans to be a passenger. Bay Area X-Planes is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Hiller Aviation Museum, 601 Skyway Road, San Carlos. Event included with museum admission. Tickets range from $7 to $11 and free for children 4 and under.

Cain tweaks 9-9-9 tax plan to allow exemptions

By Philip Elliott

DETROIT Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain on Friday redened his tax plan to exclude the poorest Americans and to allow some deductions, abandoning the zero-exemption feature of his 9-9-9 proposal that helped win headlines but would have meant a tax increase for 4 out of 5 Americans. After sharp criticism over his one-size-tsall plan from Republicans and Democrats

alike, Cain proposed no income taxes for Americans living at or below the poverty line. He also proposed exemptions for businesses investing in opportunity zones as a way to give an economic jolt to rundown neighborhoods such as the one he Herman Cain visited in hard-hit Detroit. Standing in front of a massive abandoned train depot with broken windows and barbed wire, Cain blamed regustress the importance of sharing instances of bullying with others, she said. Sean Story, a 16-year-old sophomore at Everest Public High School in Redwood City, added the group decided to focus on middle school students since kids are often nding themselves and their friends at that time. In addition, Story thought it was an impressionable age during which, with the right inuences, negative habits could be changed. Making a change, Story said, comes through communication. Many programs separate the bully and the person being bullied. Story believes the two should work together to solve the problem. The rally is to bring about awareness and to join forces, said Story, who wanted middle school kids to be empowered and feel good about themselves. Mondays presentation will also include a challenge to those in attendance to befriend those who may be getting bullied. Bystanders,

lation for the crumbling of the nations cities. When I look at this building behind me, I see opportunity if we get capital gains out of the way. There are a lot of people in this country that have money, and capital gains is a wall between people with money and people with ideas, Cain told reporters after a campaign speech. Because taxes and regulations have gotten so bad, people with money dont want to take risks. Cain said America needs to renew its optimism and take those risks. I believe the American people are saying they want to move this shining city on a hill the teens explained, are important. They have the power to befriend those going through a difcult time or explain to another why their actions are wrong. While there have been smaller efforts taken on by the group, this is its rst big event. Dream Volunteers empowers youths to be difference makers, said Dream Volunteers Executive Director Brian Burtz. The group meets weekly after school and began to brainstorm for an idea in the spring. Students worked hard on the content while adults helped with logistics. Getting the content led to partnerships like working with a local company to make documentary and public service announcement-style type videos which can be shown, said Burtz. Sam Sobell, a 16-year-old junior from Summit, described Monday as the beginning. The group hopes to do more things to curb bullying in the future. While there are no plans set, Sobell mentioned training groups of

back to the top of the hill where it belongs, he said, borrowing some of President Ronald Reagans favorite rhetoric. Yet many of Cains proposals for sites such as this one were likely to earn him more skeptics. Cains plan suggested minimum wages block low-skill workers from nding work and proposed that they be eliminated in already struggling areas. His plan also suggested that building codes and zoning in such areas should be reviewed; if businesses can make a case the regulations are hurting the economy, they may qualify for waivers. students at different schools with tools to deal with the problem. In addition, Sobell encouraged parents to talk with their kids about bullying. For kids, it can be hard to start the conversation, he said. If parents start it, it could be easier. The anti-bullying free concert and rally will be at 3:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24 at Fox Theatre, 2223 Broadway, Redwood City. Geared toward middle school students, the program is free and expected to be given to about 800 students and their parents. For more information about the Young Dreamer Network visit

prot, Dream Volunteers. Working with local teens, the program focuses on volunteer and leadership opportunities. Its rst big event will focus on a topic chosen by the teens: Bullying. On Monday, teen members of the Young Dreamer Network will host a concert and rally in Redwood City for about 800 local middle school students to launch an anti-bullying campaign. Bullying is very important in our lives right now, said 16-year-old Angelina Laus, a junior at Summit Preparatory High School in Redwood City. Laus added all the teens in the Young Dreamer Network could relate to having seen bullying or being bullied. Mondays goal is to
