Downtown Good Samaritanfacing gun charges

By Michelle Durand

The 23-year-old Good Samaritan who pulled a .45-caliber gun on a man involved in a confrontation with a woman in downtown San Mateo was charged Friday with several weapons violations. In court on Friday, Ashley Viola, of San Pablo, initially denied his name before pleading not guilty to

felony assault with a rearm and misdemeanor charges of possessing a concealed weapon, possessing a loaded weapon and brandishing a rearm. His conduct was somewhat strange which raises all sorts of issues in this case, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. Violas actions Wednesday afternoon left downtown San Mateo merchants rattled after he pulled the

weapon apparently in defense of a woman who said had been assaulted. Some hailed Viola as a Good Samaritan but Wagstaffe said he violated the law himself by having no legal basis to Ashley Viola carry the gun.

At the bare minimum, this is an individual who illegally brandished a weapon, Wagstaffe said. But by Fridays formal charging of Viola, more details emerged about what happened short after 3 p.m. near Third Avenue and San Mateo Drive. Viola told police he saw a 57-year-old San Mateo woman being assaulted and followed her alleged attacker, pulling his rearm as the man hid behind a

newspaper rack. He pulled the trigger multiple times but the gun did not re. However, Wagstaffe said the couple had an angry interaction and the man either shoved or bumped the woman but did not knock her down. When two police officers responded to multiple calls at 3:16 p.m., Viola turned toward them and

SAN FRANCISCO A California utility under re for a deadly pipeline explosion has revealed that its employees dispute key information the company gave federal investigators about past problems on the gas line that ruptured. Pacic Gas & Electric Co. quietly released a document in May more than eight months after the explosion killed eight people and torched a San Bruno neighborhood showing that the same transmission line had sprung a leak a few miles away more than two decades earlier. But the company revealed this week that its own workers accounts

challenge the accuracy of that record given to the National Transportation Safety Board. The conflicting reports about details of the 1988 leak are just the latest development in a long string of concerns about the companys haphazard record-keeping in the wake of the September blast in San Bruno. NTSB Chairwoman Deborah Hersman previously has chided the company for coming forward with critical information about the prior failure so long after the agency began its probe, saying it could hamper investigators progress. In this weeks filing, PG&E revealed that none of the approximately 20 leak surveyors and pipe

Retrial for child psychiatrists competency?

A week after a jury deadlocked over the mental tness of a former San Mateo child psychiatrist facing molestation charges, attorneys Friday scheduled a second trial to determine if the 79year-old doctor is incompetent. William Hamilton Ayres was given an Aug. 22 jury trial date but attorneys are due back in court June 29 for a status conference an appearance at which they could conrm the date or announce some agreement as to his ability to aid in his own defense. We set a trial date and are willing to do it again but there are some additional matters were looking at in making that decision, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. The defense has the burden to prove Ayres is incompetent and technically has the right to request the new trial. However, with defense attorney Jonathan McDougall likely not willing to give up proving his client unt to face a criminal trial, the real question is if the prosecution will Willam Ayres relent. McDougall did not respond to a request for comment. A jury deliberated a day before announcing June 17 it was hopelessly deadlocked 8 to 4 in favor in Ayres being not competent. Prosecutor Melissa McKowan never disputed the 79-year-old Ayres likely suffers some dementia and early Alzheimers disease but asked a jury to believe his mind was not hopelessly impaired. McDougall asked how his client, who cannot remember his childrens middle names or the word for simple items like biscuit, could possible help defend himself against felony child molestation allegations by six former male patients. The alleged abuse happened between 1988 and 1996 under the guise of medical exams. Ayres testied in his 2009 trial which hung in varied amounts on nine counts of lewd and lascivious activity, prompting McKowan to plan a retrial. Before that happened, McDougall questioned his clients mental tness and criminal proceedings were halted. Two of three court-appointed doctors found Ayres competent but McDougall requested a jurys verdict. Ayres remains free from custody on $750,000 cash bail.

The offshore area extending from Bodega Bay down to Big Sur is known as the Red Triangle for its high number of great white shark sightings. The waters draw them because of the rich supply of food, including sea lions, elephant seals and whale carcasses.

Millbrae eyeing grant for dog park

A group hoping for a dog park in Millbrae needs a little help from city ofcials. An application for state grant funds of about $300,000 would help get the process started. However, Friends of the Millbrae Dog Park has yet to be approved as a nonprot. The application deadline is July 1. On Tuesday, the

Millbrae City Council will vote to apply for the grant on behalf of the group should the nonprot approval not come in time, according to a staff report by Public Works Director Ron Popp. Friends of the Millbrae Dog Park are working with the city and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission to make the idea a reality. Currently the group is working with the SFPUC to secure access to a plot of land near Greenhills Park. The group is working on an agreement to share upkeep with the city. Under the proposal, the group would take on long-term maintenance needs while asking the city to provide garbage pickup and trash can liners, estimated to cost $5,069 annually, Popp wrote. The city would also like the right to review plans for pet-friendly plants and trees, storm water drainage and water service requirements like irrigation demands.

Millbrae schools budget shows cuts on the horizon

Reserves will help balance the Millbrae Elementary School Districts budget next

year, but cuts are coming in the following two. On Monday, the Millbrae Elementary School District Board of Trustees will hold a public hearing and vote on the proposed budget for next year. Millbrae is suggesting a budget with $15.8 million in revenue and $16.16 million in expenditures, according to a report by Chief Business Ofcial Michele Dodge. The several hundred thousand dollar difference will cut into the reserves. In the following two school years, the district forecasts the need to cut $532,600 in 2012-13 and $965,361 in 2013-14. Those cuts are in addition to further cuts into the reserves. The move will leave the district with just above the required 3 percent nancial reserve starting in the 2012-13 school year. Like most school districts, the Millbrae Elementary School District is anticipating to lose at least $349 per student, which would be a loss of $780,000, according to the staff report. The budget assumes a student to teacher ratio of 28 to 1 in kindergarten through third grade classrooms; 175 instructional days; ve furlough days; no staff development and reductions to certain employees The district meets 7 p.m. Monday, June 27 at City Hall, 620 Magnolia Drive.

NAACP decries saggy pant incident as racist

The Board of Supervisors will authorize a $1.75 million agreement with Santa Clara County for one psychiatric bed in its main jail for the next two years. The county contracts beds with Santa Clara to house jail inmates with mental health issues who cannot be accommodated at the San Mateo Medical Centers acute psychiatric ward. The board will also consider approving a $177.53 fee for response to a false re alarm beyond the second. Systems installed within 45 days of the false alarm and alarms during power interruptions or declared disaster areas would be exempt. In 2010, county re responded to 109 re alarms of which 34 were false alarms. The majority of false alarms, 24, required response by the Pescadero Station. The Board of Supervisors meets 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 27 in Board Chambers, 400 County Government Center, Redwood City. NAACP ofcials and the mother of a black college football player removed from a U.S. Airways ight and subsequent arrest because his pants were sagging called the incident racist at a Friday news conference. The fact that college football player Deshon Marman was asked to pull up his pants and ejected from a ight from San Francisco to New Mexico on June 15 is unconscionable given recent news reports that another white passenger has been allowed to travel regularly in womens lingerie, said Amos Brown, president of the San Francisco chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The airline clearly targeted Marman because of his race, Brown said at a news conference Friday in San Francisco. Hes been a victim of racial injustice and U.S. Airways owes him and his mother an apology, he said. Brown said the NAACP will be seeking an apology from U.S. Airways and action including sensitivity trainDeshon ing for employMarman ees. San Francisco police and U.S. Airways officials have said that Marman, a San Francisco resident attending the University of New Mexico on a scholarship, was arrested not because of his clothing, but because he refused requests from airline crew to pull his pants up and then refused to leave the plane when told to do so by the pilot. But Marmans mother, Donna Doyle, called the charges bogus, and said the dispute originated with a ticket agent who did not like the way her son looked. She said Marman was not a threat or exposing any underwear once he was seated, but the pilot chose to escalate the situation. You dont judge a book by its cover, and thats what they did, they judged him by his appearance, Doyle said. Marman was not even sporting the saggy pants look but was instead wearing pajama pants with a drawstring waist for comfort, she said. He tried to pull them up when the ticket agent rst mentioned them, but had bags in his hands at the time and they fell back down. It wasnt a fashion statement, it was pajama pants with a tie on them, Doyle said. When she saw photos published in newspapers recently of another passenger allowed to travel in womens underwear, Doyle said she was appalled that the man was allowed to y while her son was arrested. U.S. Airways has said it does not have a dress code for passengers but asks that they dress in an appropriate manner to ensure the safety and comfort of all our passengers. A call to the airline requesting a response to todays news conference has not yet been returned. Brown said he did not approve of the baggy pants look, which has its roots in prison culture, but Marman should not be singled out for sporting it. Doyle, who said she had four sons, likewise expressed reservations about the look. I dont condone my sons attire, but thats his choice, she said. Marman was arrested on suspicion of a felony count of battery of a police officer and misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest and trespassing. Police said an ofcer was injured in a scufe after Marman was escorted off Flight 488 to Albuquerque. He posted bail and was released from custody the next day. He is due to appear in court July 18 and the district attorneys ofce has until July 16 to decide whether to le charges.

Brown,Dems work on budget

By Judy Lin

SACRAMENTO Gov. Jerry Brown and his fellow Democrats in the Legislature worked Friday along two different tracks with the hope that one will lead to a budget deal before the start of Californias new scal year next week. Brown met with Assembly Speaker John Perez and Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg to discuss an alternative budget plan the governor could support if it were passed by a simple majority of Democrats. The governor, meanwhile, kept insisting he still has time to persuade Republican lawmakers to support his call for a special election so voters can decide whether to increase taxes. The speaker continues to meet with the governor, the pro tem and Republican leaders to nd a comprehensive budget solution and will continue to do so over the weekend, said Perezs spokeswoman Robin Swanson. He is focused on delivering a budget agreement that doesnt make further devastating cuts to schools and public safety. Californias scal year ends Thursday, and for the rst time lawmakers are feeling additional pressure to resolve the states budget crisis in a timely manner. They are losing their salaries and living expenses until they balance

the states annual spending plan by closing a $9.6 billion budget decit Lawmakers from both parties this week sounded increasingly pessimistic that Brown could get a special election. Some even proclaimed the govJerry Brown ernors plan dead. Is Plan A dead? Ill leave it to the governor to announce the wake and the funeral services but we are proceeding to try to develop again the best majority vote budget that we can with the governor, Steinberg said Thursday. Democratic lawmakers are seeking the governors input on a majority-vote budget that he could sign after he vetoed their initial budget package last week. Brown had said the Democrats spending plan relied too much on borrowing and legal maneuvers. Its unclear how the majority party could put together a new plan without taxes, especially when its leaders have pledged not to make further cuts to education and public safety. Brown has said since his gubernatorial campaign that he would seek a statewide vote on the increases, the last of which expire June 30. This week he said he remained in negotia-

tions to get the four Republican votes he needs to call a special election. Such an election would let voters weigh in on whether to extend increases in sales, vehicle and personal income taxes for up to ve years. But Republicans for months have resisted Browns call for a special election without promises of pension reform and a state spending cap, possibly as companion ballot initiatives. Assembly Republican Leader Connie Conway said those reforms werent enough to get her support for a special election. Senate Republicans said they were willing to let Californians vote on tax extensions but accused the governor of being unwilling to compromise because of pressure from public employee unions. Its the public unions and the governor who have become the problem in this budget negotiation, not Republicans, said Sen. Bob Huff, R-Diamond Bar, vice chair of the Senate Budget Committee. The governors spokesman, Gil Duran, said it was Republicans who refused to allow a special election vote to go forward, even when the governor made concessions earlier this year. Theyve again shown what theyre best at grandstanding without solving problems, Duran said. out of restricted areas where Navy missile tests are conducted. The state Air Resources Board, meeting Thursday in Sacramento, agreed unanimously to extend the regulatory zone farther than the current 24 nautical-mile zone between the Southern California island chain and the shore. The Navy complained that ships are traveling around the islands and through its Point Mugu Sea Range since California enforced the worlds toughest ship pollution regulation. The rule, which took effect July 2009, forced ships heading to California ports to switch from burning heavy, sludge-like bunker fuels to more rened but pricier fuel as they enter the buffer zone.

Hospitals concerned about 2-day L.A. freeway closure
LOS ANGELES Next months weekend closure of a busy Los Angeles freeway has hospitals concerned that the anticipated trafc nightmare that it could cause will keep workers from getting to work on time. Authorities planned to shut a 14-mile segment of Interstate 405 for 53 hours so crews can demolish one side of the Mulholland Drive Bridge as part of a larger $1-billion freeway improvement project. At a community meeting Thursday night, an executive speaking on behalf of four hospitals near the freeway told transportation and law enforcement ofcials that there was a serious gap in planning for the July 15 start of the closure. A police ofcial said hospital employees, just like law enforcement ofcers and transportation workers scheduled to be on hand during the closure, should leave for work early enough in case of delays or trafc jams. Carpenter said the hospitals were making efforts to try to provide nearby housing for employees during the closure, but that there were not nearly enough beds for all of them.

Small asteroid to zip harmlessly past Earth Monday

PASADENA NASA says a newly discovered asteroid will have a close encounter with Earth on Monday, but theres no need to worry. The space agencys Near-Earth Object Program Ofce says the small space rock dubbed 2011 MD will pass 7,500 miles above Earths surface over the southern Atlantic Ocean at about 6:30 a.m. PDT. Though it will come close, its not a distance record holder. Earlier this year, a tiny asteroid ew by even closer within 3,400 miles. . The latest asteroid measures 33 feet long and was discovered this week by telescopes in New Mexico. Scientists say asteroids this size sail past Earth every six years. The asteroid will briey be bright enough that medium-size telescopes may be able to spot it.

N.Y.approves gay marriage


County adopts recommended budget

Capping three days of departmental presentations, the Board of Supervisors Thursday adopted a tentative $1.7 billion budget that spared from the chopping block several probation ofcers, a coastside public nurse and some health services for at-risk children. The supervisors added $1,705,568 back to its recommended $1.69 billion budget a substantially smaller amount than the $4.1 million in departmental requests before them Thursday. Board President Carole Groom suggested the board not add back anything requiring general funds because of state budget uncertainties and the countys own ve-year effort to wipe out a $82 million budget gap. Leave it alone. I would suggest we just leave it alone. Look at it again in September. Look at it again in January, she said.

Three local high schools ranked in top 500

Only three San Mateo County high schools made the top 500 in Newsweeks Americas Best High School list, which was released this week. Summit Preparatory High in Redwood City was at the top of the San Mateo County schools with a rank of 132. Only two other schools in the county earned a spot on the 500-school list: Hillsdale High School in San Mateo, ranked 225; and Mills High School in Millbrae, ranked 244. Last year, nine schools in San Mateo County earned the ranked and three schools from Palo Alto or Los altos were included in the list which was over triple the current list size. Gunn High School in Palo Alto tops the list locally ranking 42, putting it in the top 10 California schools. Summit also earned a new distinction as one of the top 10 Miracle High Schools. The Miracle High School list includes schools with an added challenge of taking students at all skill levels and graduating qualied students.

ALBANY, N.Y. New York lawmakers narrowly voted to legalize same-sex marriage Friday, handing activists a breakthrough victory in the state where the gay rights movement was born. New York will become the sixth state where gay couples can wed and the biggest by far. We are leaders and we join other proud states that recognize our families and the battle will now go on in other states, said Sen. Thomas Duane, a Democrat. Gay rights advocates are hoping the vote will galvanize the move-

ment around the country and help it regain momentum after an almost identical bill was defeated here in 2009 and similar measures failed in 2010 in New Jersey and this year in Maryland and Rhode Island. Once this is signed into law, the population of the United States living under marriage equality doubles, said Ross Levi, executive director of the Empire State Pride Agenda in an interview. Thats certainly going to have a ripple effect across the nation. Its truly a historic night for love, our families, and democracy won. Though New York is a relative latecomer in allowing gay marriage,

it is considered an important prize for advocates, given the states size, New York Citys international stature. The gay rights movement is considered to have started with the Stonewall riots in New York Citys Greenwich Village in 1969. A huge street party erupted outside the Stonewall Inn Friday night, with celebrants waving rainbow ags and dancing after the historic vote. I am spellbound. Im so exhausted and so proud that the New York State Senate nally stood on the right side of history, said Queens teacher Eugene Lovendusky, 26, who is gay and said he hopes to marry someday.

Obama takes control of debt-limit discussion


Around the Nation House rejects measure to continue U.S. role in Libya
WASHINGTON The House refused to vote President Barack Obama the authority for U.S. military operations against Libya on Friday but stopped short of cutting off funds for the mission, a mixed message reminiscent of congressional unease on Vietnam and more recent wars. The vote was 295-123, with 70 Democrats abandoning Obama one day after Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had made a lastminute plea in a Capitol Hill meeting.

City agrees to parking lot swap

A proposal to swap land between the city of Burlingame and St. Catherine of Siena Church, which raised concerns by those who live and work around the Primrose Road lot, was approved by the City Council Monday.

WASHINGTON Struggling to break a perilous deadlock, President Barack Obama took direct control Friday of national debt-limit negotiations with both Republicans and Democrats. With the White House warning the nations economic stability is at stake, its one of the most severe tests yet of Obamas presidency. The key disagreement is over taxes. Democrats, including Obama, say a major decit-reduction agreement must include tax increases or the elimination of tax breaks for big companies and wealthy individuals. Republicans are demanding huge cuts in government spending and insisting there be no tax increases. Absent an agreement that cuts longterm decits, Republicans say they will not vote to increase the nations borrowing, which will exceed its $14.3 trillion limit on Aug. 2. The administration has warned that if Congress

does not raise the debt ceiling, it could mean the rst U.S. nancial default in history and send economic shockwaves around the world. Discussions led by Vice President Barack Obama Joe Biden that were designed to trim about $2 trillion from long-term decits abruptly stalled this week, leading Obama to step in Friday and summon the top Senate leaders to the White House. On Monday morning, Obama and Biden plan to meet with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and in the early evening he will sit down with Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner have repeatedly said that no deal can include tax hikes.

Small checks drive Michele Bachmanns big bucks

ST. PAUL, Minn. Republican Michele Bachmann is counting on legions of donors giving a few dollars at a time, over and over again, to carry her in the 2012 presidential race. Bachmann has cultivated a devoted base of small yet repeated donors. Of her $13.5 million haul for her 2010 congressional race, more than half came from contributors giving less than $200.

Dont confuse rhetoric with reality

By Linda Koelling

Arrogance of power
eaders, who have followed my little column for years, may remember, early in the Bush administration, I promised I would not write anything about our military incursions into Iraq and Afghanistan, because both, inevitably, would end up failures of purpose. I have kept that promise. Also, I wrote that accursed administration was playing a cynical political game with the tragedy of 9/11. Now, President Obama is, nally, announcing a painfully slow drawdown of American troops from these disasters. In being drawn into these two wars, our leadership had not learned the most basic lesson from the Vietnam incursion, which assumed we could send military might into ongoing ancient civilizations and effect changes in their course of history. So, again, we have interrupted civil wars that will recommence after we leave. Great powers from Rome to the British Empire and now us assumed that same mantle of arrogance of power that, eventually, brings them down as world powers. It was Bushs conceit and ignorance of history that dragged us into a war with Saddam Hussein, admittedly a murderous leader for his own people, who provably had no part of the 9/11 attacks and, as a secular leader, was an enemy of Osama bin Laden and rest of the Islamic religious right. This is in a nation, because of stupid decisions made after the World War I Versailles Treaty, had national geographic boundaries drawn encompassing religious tribes that hated each other, in this case, populations of 60 percent Shiite Muslims, 20 percent Sunni Muslims and 20 percent Kurds. It is still my conviction, after we have wasted so many American lives and so much of our national wealth, when we pull out entirely, as we must, these native factions will pick right up where they left off during our interruption, and begin slaughtering each other again. In Afghanistan, we went in to secure that nation against a staging ground for al-Qaida and, inevitably, fell into a deadly war, with many American losses, with the Taliban, which had never expressed itself as an enemy of the United States, whose ancestors have, likely, been there for over a thousand years and will still be there after we leave to pick up again their goals inherited from the 7th century of enforcing primitive religious practices upon the rest of its countrys population. As for our domestic reaction to the consequences of 9/11, for re-election purposes and to posit a strong Republican national defense posture, the Bush administration, led by Karl Rove, wildly exaggerated the size and power of bin Ladens band, called ctional attack alerts and threw our nation into a paroxysm of fear of a small band of religious zealots that had no way of invading our country or the weapons to engage our great military and, obviously, granted to bin Laden, the great pleasure that with a few suicide planes he had done more damage to the American psyche than the bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese. I felt from the outset that 9/11, although a terrible tragedy at the personal level for the thousands of victims and their family and friends, was a one-shot opportunity that succeeded as a surprise attack upon an unprepared nation, but would not, and could not, be repeated. As for physical damage to our massive population and infrastructure, if one projects a map of the U.S. mainland on the side of the Merchandise Mart in Chicago, the worlds largest commercial building, puts a ladder up to the 12th oor and makes a dot with a felt marker pen upon the image of New York City, even that would be an exaggeration of the actual physical damage to our vast country. But, the psychological damage, fostered by the Bush administration, has been immeasurable. And, if one remembers, fearful readers, in letters to the editor, attempted to scorch me as myopic and head in the sand. But I held to my own conviction, if one is truly patriotic, one doesnt succumb to mainstream conventional wisdom and clings to the truth, however unpleasant that may be. I kept asking, why would suicide bombers need to surreptitiously board commercial planes to bring them down, when it is much easier to acquire black market Stinger missiles, stand at the periphery of airports and just shoot them down landing or taking off? This is a weak point in democracy: It gives free license for political demagogues of fear to inuence normally rational minds and direct nations into swamps of self destruction. As a sop to our American national pride, in the face of obviously losing causes, we continue drawing out military engagements, despite the continuing deaths and crippling of our young, patriotic American troops and waste of our national wealth, in this case, also, the political posturing before the upcoming presidential elections.

nfortunately, here remains some confusion about whose responsibility it is for funding the school crossing guard program in Foster City. The health and safety of our children is the concern of all of us but implementing this program has been and remains the responsibility of the San MateoFoster City Elementary School District. I would like to provide all concerned with the recent history of the crossing guard program in Foster City. In 2004, the city was asked by the school district to help pay for the $40,000 crossing guard program as it was facing some tough budgeting issues. To assist in helping the school district, the city offered to help by paying half the cost ($20,000). To date, the city has been able to continue to help fund the program. Last year, the school district withdrew its half of the funding and the number of crossing guards was reduced. This entire subject of crossing guards became more of an emotional issue concerning driver safety rather than a real desire to understand the genesis, implementation and funding of the crossing guard program. The fact that city government agencies and school districts provide different services to the general public seems to be misunderstood by many residents. I appreciated the comments made by parents who spoke at our council meeting. They demonstrated a real collective interest in nding a solution. I think we can all agree there is a need for our children to be able to get to and from school safely. There really is no debate

Guest perspective
on that concept. Where there is a debate is how to construct such a safety plan and who can and will pay for it. It is essential that a comprehensive funding mechanism be put in place for a longterm solution. As part of my council responsibilities, I am chair of the Peninsula Trafc Congestion Relief Alliance. For the past few years, that organization has offered gas vouchers for parents to carpool to and from schools throughout the county. The reasoning behind this program is to incentivize carpooling, thereby, having fewer cars traveling to and from school and reducing the overall trafc hazard to students. Recently, the City/County Association of Governments board allocated $2 million for a program called Safe Routes to School. This program is in the planning stages and will be implemented throughout the San Mateo County Ofce of the Superintendent. It will offer ways and means to generate safety programs for children traveling to school. My understanding is that grant funding will be available and school districts are encouraged to apply. These are just two ongoing options for addressing the need for student safety while traveling to and from schools. Due to the current lack of a clear plan for the next school year, the council has given the go-ahead to help fund the crossing guards for at least one additional year, with the understanding that a longer term solution will be required to be put in place. The City Council subcommittee comprised of Vice Mayor Art Kiesel and myself, will ask to meet with the school board subcommittee to discuss ways to achieve this long-term crossing guard plan. We

cant continue to beat on the issue every few years. I remember a time when students were crossing guards and wondered when and why this has evolved into a paid program offered by the district. I think a volunteer program can work, although it was not a popular option when I mentioned it, because we have very dedicated parents who would be willing to offer a day to serve as crossing guards. Another possibility to help fund a crossing program is to have every family pay a $20 per year fee to the district, thereby minimizing the cost to the school district budget. These are a few ideas I will share in the subcommittee meeting for further exploration. As parents offered their opinions about the crossing guard issue at the last meeting, they also expressed concerns over the high incidence of reckless driving by parents and commuters in the complete disregard of our trafc laws particularly during the morning hours while children are walking to school. Incidents of cellphone operation while driving, texting while driving and other illegal or unsafe driving habits have been far too prevalent. Again, it will take a collective effort to make this happen. Drivers need to reevaluate their driving habits around schools, parents need to do more carpooling and be ready to step up to help keep the crossing guard. The school district needs to evaluate available options to fund crossing guard programs that will help students safety and encourage their implementation. The city will continue to do its part by having police patrol presence to discourage offenders of our trafc laws. Irresponsible driving habits that put our children in peril will not be tolerated.

Letters to the editor

Framework for freedom
Editor, In Congress, July 4, 1776, the unanimous declaration of the 13 United States of America was signed by 55 members, 235 years ago. The Declaration of Independence was the promise. In the last quarter of the 18th century, there was no country in the world that governed with separated and divided power or provided checks and balances on the exercise of authority by those who goverened. The rst step was taken in 1776, followed by the Constitution drafted in Philedelphia in 1787 (the fullment) and in 1791, the Bill of Rights was added. During the patriotic holidays, Memorial Day, Flag Day and Independence Day, I hope that we all, as American citizens, renew our faith in the framework for freedom, envisioned by the Founding Fathers. The Declaration of Independence was the promise, the Constitution was the fulllment. At the Constitutional Convention, Ben Franklin was asked, What have you wrought? He answered, A Republic, if you can keep it. The only way we can keep it is to vote to have your say.

About divine denial

Wall Street
since it hit a high for the year on April 29. Technology stocks were broadly lower. Micron Technology Inc. fell 14.5 percent after the company said lower sales of computer chips hurt its earnings, which were far less than analysts had expected. Oracle Corp. fell 4 percent after its sales of computer hardware fell sharply. Cisco Systems Inc. fell 3.5 percent, and Microsoft Corp. lost 1.3 percent. Government bond prices rose to their highest level of the year as investors favored lower-risk assets. The yield on the 10-year Treasury dipped to 2.86 percent. The U.S. economy has cooled since late April. Recent reports on housing, employment, manufacturing and retail sales all have been weak. The debt crisis in Greece and fears that Chinas growth is slowing have also pushed markets lower. No one is expecting good news, but if its worse than expectations, this is really a very shaky market, said Uri Landesman, president of Platinum Partners, a hedge fund. Landesman expects that the Standard & Poors 500 index will fall to 1,200 this summer as more companies report secondquarter earnings next month. The last time the S&P 500 crossed that threshold was in December 2010.

If weak nancial results from big tech companies are a sign of whats to come, stock indexes are in for a tough summer. Stocks fell Friday, giving the market another losing week, after poor earnings reports from two major technology companies suggested that companies invested less in new technology as the economic recovery slowed. Fears of a spreading European debt crisis also weighed on markets. Italian bank stocks plunged and trading in some of them was halted after Moodys warned that it might downgrade their credit ratings. I think it spooked a lot of people, said Frederick Rizzo, who analyzes European banks for T. Rowe Price. The markets are really emotional right now. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 115.42 points, or 1 percent, to 11,934.58. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 15.05, or 1.2 percent, to 1,268.45. The Nasdaq composite fell 33.86, or 1.3 percent, to 2,652.89. The decline erased all of this weeks gains for the Dow Jones industrial average and S&P index. The broad stock market has now fallen for seven of the last eight weeks, largely because of concerns that the U.S. economy is slowing and that Europes debt problems may lead to another nancial crisis. The S&P 500 is down 7 percent

FTC turns up heat on Google


SAN FRANCISCO Google may be entering a make-or-break phase in its colorful history now that U.S. regulators have opened an investigation into whether the company has been abusing its dominance of Internet search and advertising to stie competition. The probe by the Federal Trade Commission, conrmed by the company Friday, will require Google to convince regulators that its closely guarded recipe for search results is designed to give people the best recommendations, not bury links to its rivals. If you search for a local business, for example, Google might highlight its own listing, from a service called Google Places, instead of one on Yelp, a popular review site and Google competitor. Requests for directions may turn up Google Maps, and queries for a video might point to the companys own site, YouTube. Or if you type mortgage in Googles main search box, the top ad might be for Google Advisor, which lists the lowest interest rates. The inquiry also is expected to peer into Googles nancial engine: the advertising links tied to the subject of each search request. Some of these commer-

cial messages appear, shaded in color, at the top of the results page, while others are stacked in the right-hand column. Even as Google has expanded into video, mobile phones and television, the text advertising that pops up alongside search results and other Web content generates most of Googles revenue an amount expected to exceed $35 billion this year. Some websites contend Google has rigged its system in a way that drives up the ad prices, even though Google says the rate is determined by bids submitted in an auction. Others say Google purposely blocks their ads from appearing because the company views them as competitive threats. A coalition of Internet travel companies, including Expedia, Hotwire and Kayak, have welcomed the investigation. The FTC is following the lead of European regulators who launched a similar investigation last November. The Texas attorney general has been looking into Googles business practices, too. The search engines for Microsoft and Yahoo also sometimes feature their own services in search results. The big difference: Google processes about two-thirds of all search requests in the U.S. and handles an even larger volume of advertis-

ing. Microsofts Bing and Yahoo combined have less than 30 percent of the market. Danny Sullivan, who follows the industry closely as editor-in-chief of the trade journal Search Engine Land, said what Google is doing is not unlike a newspaper running an ad to promote one of its products. From what I have seen so far, he says, Google doesnt seem to be doing anything wrong. Melissa Maxman, an antitrust attorney in Washington, said the FTC wouldnt have opened its inquiry unless it thought the complaints were credible. There is smoke if not re, she said. The FTCs investigation threatens to put Google on the same course as nemesis Microsoft, which was the target of a Justice Department lawsuit that began in the 1990s and dragged into the next decade. That case alleged that Microsoft used its dominant Windows operating system to kill competing software makers. Its right out of the same playbook, Maxman said of the FTCs probe into Google. Although Microsoft thwarted an attempt to break up the company, it was distracted for years, and the company has never been quite the same.

Drivers catch a break as gas prices fall


NEW YORK A summer road trip may not be such a bad idea after all. Gasoline prices are falling fast. In the past 7 weeks, the average U.S. retail prices has dropped 38 cents to $3.60 per gallon. Another 25-cent drop is expected by midJuly. When prices approached $4 in early May, drivers were worried that $5 gasoline was a possibility this summer. But since then, oil prices have collapsed, the result of slowing economic growth in developed countries, weaker demand for oil and gas and this weeks decision by the U.S. and other countries to release 60 million barrels of oil from strategic reserves. Economists say falling prices will benet consumers by leaving money in their wallets, and making them

feel freer to spend on travel, shopping and dining. Ron Meyers, 51, a handyman from Little Rock, Ark., was doubtful that he could afford the drive to visit family in Pennsylvania. Now, thanks to cheaper gas, the trip is on. And he plans on seeing a few more summer movies, too. You can go out and have a good time, and have a little money left in your pocket, he said. Economists say that while, for instance, a 25-cent-per-gallon drop only saves the typical driver $12.50 per month, it has a huge effect both on the economy as a whole and on the psychology of consumers. Naveen Agarwal, who helps small businesses and car companies manage fuel costs as CEO of Pricelock, in Redwood City, Calif, said he expects drivers will travel far-

ther distances this summer than originally planned. And theyll spend as they go. Theyll be a little bit more liberal about their consumption instead of just having a barbeque in their back yard, Agarwal said. Instead of thinking of ways to cut back, the Dykstra family of Orange City, Iowa, will now be able to spend a little more on meals and souvenirs when it visits Chicago. We actually budgeted for $5 a gallon, Mark Dykstra, 46, a supermarket assistant manager who will be travelling with his three teenage children, said earlier this week. For the rst ve months of the year, gasoline prices went in one direction: up. Growing economies, especially in Asia, burned more gasoline, diesel and jet fuel. Turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa prevented oil from reaching the market and scared oil traders into bidding prices higher.

Logano wins pole for NASCAR race at Sonoma

By Jenna Fryer

SONOMA Joey Logano never thought hed win the pole at Inneon Raceway, even after he claimed the top qualifying spot. As he sat in his Joe Gibbs Racing hauler Friday watching the nal drivers make their qualifying laps, Logano expected to be bumped. But when Kasey Kahne, Denny Hamlin and Kurt Busch all failed to beat him, Logano wound up with just the second pole of his career.

Logano turned a lap at 93.256 mph in his Toyota to claim the top starting spot in Sundays race. I was very surprised, he said. We were sitting in the trailer watching the last three guys to go and it was Kasey, who got the Joey Logano pole here last year, Denny, who is really good here and our teammate, and then Kurt, who has got the last three poles in a row. We didnt think

we were going to be good enough to get the pole, but made some good adjustments and got some speed in the car. This is the last place I expected to get a pole. I never considered myself a road course racer. Logano snapped Buschs streak of three straight poles this season. Jamie McMurray qualified second in a Chevrolet with a lap at 93.223 and Paul Menard was third in a Chevrolet. Hamlin was fourth, Ryan Newman fth and Kahne sixth. Richard Petty Motorsports teammates AJ

Allmendinger and Marcos Ambrose qualied seventh and eighth in Fords. Clint Bowyer and Brian Vickers lled out the top 10. Busch wound up 11th and defending race winner Jimmie Johnson was 12th. Tony Ave was the only driver to fail to qualify for the race. Current points leader Carl Edwards qualied 23rd and decided to skip the Nationwide Series race Saturday at Road America. Running the event in Wisconsin would have

Giants 4, Indians 3

Giants rally for victory



As rookie Guillermo Moscoso held Philadelphia to just two hits over seven innings of work.Unfortunately,the As offense could not pick him up as the Phillies scored in the bottom of the ninth to win 1-0.

Moscoso masterful in loss

By Rob Maaddi

Phillies 1, As 0
Moscoso said. I just hope I can stay in the rotation. Well just have to see what happens. Moscoso gave up two hits and walked three in a career-high seven innings. Moscoso replaced the injured Tyson Ross in the rotation on May 25, and is 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA in six starts. He located well and used his breaking ball and change more than he has in the past, As manager Bob Melvin said. He used more pitches than he has been throwing. Hes been good, but this one was his best yet.

PHILADELPHIA Guillermo Moscoso strengthened his case to stay in Oaklands starting rotation. Moscoso took a no-hitter into the sixth inning, but had nothing to show for the best start of his young career. He was gone by the time pinch-hitter Ben Francisco hit an RBI single with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to lift the Philadelphia Phillies to a 1-0 victory over the Athletics on Friday night. This game was good for my condence,

In a game in which rookie starters Moscoso and Vance Worley took no-hitters into the sixth, neither team got a runner to third until the ninth. Shane Victorino walked to start the inning against Brian Fuentes (1-8). He went to second on Domonic Browns one-out single to right. Both runners advanced on Brian Schneiders grounder to rst. Francisco then hit a high bouncer over third baseman Scott Sizemores head to drive in Victorino. It was Oaklands third straight loss after six wins in a row.

SAN FRANCISCO Andres Torres scored the deciding run from third base on Aubrey Huffs long foul out in the sixth inning, and the San Francisco Giants overcame another erratic start by pitcher Jonathan Sanchez to beat the Cleveland Indians 4-3 on Friday night. Torres also homered and singled twice to help the Giants rally from three runs down and win their major league-leading 16th one-run game at home. San Francisco has won three straight following a season-high fivegame losing streak. The Giants managed only six hits but took Andres Torres advantage of two errors by Cleveland first baseman Carlos Santana to score three unearned runs off starter Carlos Carrasco. It was a tough night all around for the Indians, who lost outelder Shin-Soo Choo to a possible hand injury after he was hit by a pitch from Sanchez in the fourth. Sanchez allowed only two hits but walked six and hit a batter with a pitch in what may be his nal start in San Franciscos rotation. The left-hander, who struck out six, has failed to make it out of the fth inning in each of his last two starts and has only one win since May 12. With left-hander Barry Zito scheduled to come off the disabled list in the next few days, manager Bruce Bochy may be forced to make a move. Before the game Bochy said that Zito will pitch the second game of San Franciscos doubleheader in Chicago on Tuesday but was noncommittal beyond that. Santiago Casilla (1-1) pitched 1 1-3 innings for the win and combined with Jeremy Affeldt, Sergio Romo and Brian Wilson for 4 1-3 hitless innings to complete the two-hitter in the rst meeting between the two teams since 2008. Wilson pitched the ninth for his

Roddick swept out of Wimbledon in third round

By Stephen Wilson

WIMBLEDON, England Three-time Wimbledon runner-up Andy Roddick was eliminated 7-6 (2), 7-6 (2), 6-4 by Feliciano Lopez in the third round on Friday, the biggest upset of the mens tournament so far. The 44th-ranked Lopez served 28 aces and piled up 57 winners to defeat Roddick on Centre

Court, the Americans rst loss to the Spanish left-hander in eight matches. In a surprise on the womens side, second-seeded and 2010 runner-up Vera Zvonareva was knocked out 6-2, 6-3 by 33rd-ranked Tsvetana Pironkova of Feliciano Lopez Bulgaria. The Russian con-

verted only one of seven break points and had 18 unforced errors. Pironkova upset Venus Williams here last year en route to the seminals. The eighth-seeded Roddick, who lost to Roger Federer in the nals in 2004, 05 and 09, served 16 aces but also had six double-faults. Its the third time in four years Roddick has lost in the early rounds he went out in the second round in 2008 and the fourth last year.

Lopez, who reached the Wimbledon quarternals in 2005 and 2008, broke Roddick twice and had only seven unforced errors. The Spaniard had lost to Roddick in all their previous matches, including the Wimbledon tuneup at Queens Club two weeks ago. This was a big win for me, Lopez said. I played Andy so many times and he always beat me. It was so important for me to win today.

Germany,U.S.,Brazil headline womens World Cup

By Nesha Starcevic

FRANKFURT, Germany When Germany won its rst major title in womens soccer, coming home with the trophy from the 1989 European Championship, the players bonus was a coffee set. A tacky one to boot, with a design of red and blue blooming owers and a aw. The discount, second-choice product from a local manufacturer may have been a poor pick for a gift, but consider that this was the same German federation that had banned organized womens soccer between 1955 and 1970. The womens game has come long way since its pioneer days. Should Germany win the Womens World Cup, the players will be able to buy any tea set they want and then some with their bonuses of $85,410 each. The World Cup will give womens soccer a new dimension, says Katja Kraus, a former Germany goalkeeper who has risen to top management levels in the mens Bundesliga. Germany will be trying to become the rst team to win three straight World Cups when it kicks off the three-week tournament against Canada on Sunday in Berlins Olympic stadium. The tournament will be held in nine cities across Germany, with the July 17 nal in Frankfurt. This is going to be a great event to rival and maybe surpass the 1999 spectacle. We all know that was an awesome and competitive spectacle of womens athletics, said ESPN analyst Tony DiCicco, who witnessed the sold-out stadiums and enthusiasm rst-hand as the U.S. coach in 1999. We have great teams three of my personal favorites are the U.S., Germany and Brazil and we have great players. Weve got the most prepared teams probably in the history of the Womens World Cup from top to bottom, he added. Theres going to be a couple of lopsided games but, overall, I think this is going to be the most engaging competi-


Germanys Birgit Prinz,left,United StatesAbby Wambach,middle,and Brazils Marta hope to lead their respective teams to this years World Cup title in Germany. Germany has lost only three games since 2009,Wambach was injured when the U.S. won the gold in Beijing in 2008 and Marta is generally regarded as the best female player in the world.
tion as far as the World Cup (ever). The 2006 mens World Cup in Germany is now known as the summer fairy tale for its fabulous weather, huge and generally wellbehaved crowds that turned the tournament into a monthlong party. German organizers are trying to reproduce that atmosphere, and the strong marketing effort has sold 75 percent of the 900,000 tickets for the 32-game tournament. Aside from Berlin, which will host only the opening match, the only other 2006 World Cup arena to be used is in Frankfurt. Most other stadiums have a capacity of between 20,000 and 30,000. The tournament will also have unprecedented television coverage both in Germany and the United States. All 32 games will be shown live in Germany by the countrys two public television channels. ESPN is giving the Womens World Cup the same kind of treatment it did last years mens tournament in South Africa, showing all 32 games live on either ESPN or ESPN2, as well as online at ESPN also created a mobile studio, Big Blue, that will allow the network to do live pregame, postgame and halftime shows from the different stadiums, along with showcasing cultural sites throughout Germany. We will cover the tournament as a tournament unto itself, said Jed Drake, executive producer of ESPNs World Cup coverage. But we will recognize the importance of the U.S. team to our audience, and pay extra attention to them. ... I do believe that the interest in the U.S. team is going to generate a lot of interest, and were starting to feel that buzz now. The Americans come into the World Cup as the top-ranked team in the world and defending Olympic champions. But its been 12 years since the Golden Generation Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy, Joy Fawcett, Kristine Lilly and Brandi Chastain, just to name a few won the United States second title, and the Americans have been uncharacteristically inconsistent of late. After going more than two years without a loss, the U.S. dropped three games in ve months. The Americans were stunned in the seminals of regional World Cup qualifying by Mexico, a team that had been 0-24-1 against its northern neighbor. The U.S. had to win a homeand-home playoff with Italy just to get to Germany. The United States lost to Sweden in the Four Nations opener, though it did go on to win the tournament, and then was beaten by England for the rst time since 1988. Thats a sign of how strong the sport has become, said captain Christie Rampone, the only current player left from the 99 squad. International teams have more money invested and more of a commitment to womens soccer. Theres not a team out there you can overlook. Germany has lost just three games since February 2009 though all three were to the Americans and looks particularly potent after spending more than two months in training camps. Coach Silvia Neids team played four warm-up games and won them all, scoring a combined 15 goals and conceding none. Thats not surprising, seeing that Germany won the title four years ago in China without conceding a goal. Brazil, runner-up at the last two Olympics and the 2007 World Cup, is unbeaten since April 2009 and has Marta, the ve-time FIFA player of the year. Its very important because Ive won individual titles, Marta said of winning the World Cup. Now I want to get a team medal, not just for me, but for the entire team, the athletes, the coaches and everyone. And for Brazil.

Doping appeal hangs over Contador,Tour

By Samuel Petrequin

PARIS Alberto Contador might as well be riding this years Tour de France with an asterisk emblazoned on his jersey. The small print would say: Doping appeal Aug. 1-3 before the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The three-time Tour champions hearing a week after the race ends will loom in the background as cyclings showcase event plays out against the familiar scenes of rolling countryside and soaring mountains. Bradley Wiggins, who recently won the Criterium du Dauphine to position himself as a credible rival to Contador, said the defending champions presence next month on the snaking roads of France is bad for the sport. Personally, I am happy that he is there as it means that Saxo Bank will be doing everything to help him win, Wiggins said referring to Contadors team. Sports-wise, though, it is not a good thing that a bloke who tested positive four times is in the race. It is also bad for all those teams that are ghting to be clean, as is the case with my team, Sky. Contador tested positive for the banned anabolic agent clenbuterol on the second rest day of the 2010 Tour and traces of the drug were found in tests performed over the next three days. But the Spanish cycling federation dismissed those tests because clenbuterol takes several days to leave a persons system, and

then cleared Contador of the positive test, accepting his explanation that he inadvertently consumed innitesimal doses of clenbuterol in contaminated beef. The International Cycling Union and World Anti-Doping Agency Alberto appealed that ruling to the Contador Court of Arbitration for Sport. The case originally was scheduled to be heard in June, but the CAS pushed the dates back to August, acceding to a request from Contadors legal team for more time to prepare. That cleared the way for the Spaniard to compete in this years Tour from July 2-24. Its hard to understand that a year later, we still dont have an answer and we have to wait until after the Tour to get an answer, Tour director Christian Prudhomme said. There is an incredible time lag between the world of the sports media and that of sporting justice. While the UCI deplored excessively long proceedings in Contadors case, it said that until the CAS rules the Spaniard has the right to be treated like every other rider who takes the start of the Tour de France. Even the distraction Lance Armstrong caused by coming out of retirement to compete in the 2009 Tour, which race organizers called an embarrassment to the event, falls short of what Contadors participation this year could do to further sully cycling.

Though rumors and accusations of doping dogged Armstrong throughout his career, and he is currently under investigation by a federal grand jury, the Texan never tested positive for a banned substance. Contadors decision to defend his title in the grueling three-week race ahead of his impending hearing sets up the possibility he could win a fourth Tour title only to be stripped of it and banned from the sport if the CAS rules against him weeks later. He would lose all his victories since the positive test, including last years Tour title and the Giro dItalia crown he won in May. While a negative ruling would severely taint the 28-year-olds legacy in the sport, being cleared could cement his status among cyclings all-time greats. He already is one of only ve riders to have won all three of the sports Grand Tours: the Tour, the Giro and the Spanish Vuelta. A fourth win in the Tour would give him his seventh Grand Tour victory, tying him with Armstrong, Miguel Indurain and Fausto Coppi. Only cycling legends Eddy Merckx (11), Bernard Hinault (10) and Jacques Anquetil (8) have won more. A victory in July also would give Contador his third consecutive Tour title, a feat achieved by only five other men: Louison Bobet, Anquetil, Merckx, Indurain and Armstrong, the all time record holder with seven straight. Wearing the yellow jersey at the nish in Paris on July 24 also would put Contador in position to make history by becoming the rst

cyclist to win all three Grand Tours in the same season. Saxo Bank team boss Bjarne Riis says the Spaniard has what it takes to win the Tour and add a Vuelta crown in September. Contador calls it a dream. While this years Tour appears to be tailormade for Contador with six high-mountain stages and four hilltop nishes, he said winning will be hard because of the toll the Giro took on his legs. It is very difcult to win the Tour anyway, because it requires a specic approach, he said. The Giro was not the ideal preparation, because it was extremely difcult. The Tour, which starts in the Vendee region of western France, is likely to be decided during a grueling third week of racing in the Alps, with the Col du Galibier climbed twice before a stage nish at the legendary Alpe dHuez ski resort and its 21 hairpin bends on July 22. The course will include a total of 23 mountain passes in the Alps, Pyrenees and Massif Central. Contador says Andy Schleck, whom the Spaniard beat by only 39 seconds last year, again will be his main rival. Schleck won the king of the mountains green jersey earlier this month at the Tour of Switzerland. I am in a good spot in my nal buildup to peak condition, Schleck said. Its nice to have the mountain jersey now, but green is still the second color behind yellow. As long as it doesnt come with an asterisk.

Sharks acquire defenseman from Wild

By Josh Dubow

SAN JOSE The San Jose Sharks acquired the topight defenseman they had been seeking, sending a package headlined by forward Devin Setoguchi to the Minnesota Wild for All-Star Brent Burns. The Sharks paid a steep price to acquire the 26-year-old Burns, who is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent after next season. Theres such a shortage of high-end defensemen in this league, general manager Doug Wilson said. Thats why you better move quickly because other people are lined up and involved. Theres just not enough good defensemen and centermen around in this league. When they do become available, if you hesitate you dont get them. They sent a former 30-goal scorer who hasnt even reached his prime in the 24-year-old Setoguchi, last years rst-round pick Charlie Coyle and the 28th overall pick in this years draft for Burns and a 2012 second-round selection. After losing in the conference nals the past two seasons, the Sharks hope the addition of Burns helps them get past that hurdle for the rst time in franchise history. Were right in, we think, our wheel house, our window with our team, Wilson said. Bringing in a guy with his age and his type of game, it complements where our team is at. Burns had 17 goals last season, third among all blue liners. He also had 29 assists, giving the Sharks another proven puckmoving defenseman to go along with veteran All-Star Dan Boyle. San Joses lack of depth on the blue line was evident in the conference loss to Vancouver, providing an impetus for this move. When you dont win you make changes. It happens, coach Todd McLellan said. Even the Bruins will make changes this year. Thats the way the business is set up. For the past few years we felt that we were maybe not as strong on the blue line

as we needed to be. McLellan coached Burns in the AHL during the 2004-05 season, when he made the transition from forward to defense. McLellan gave a glowing review of Burns to Wilson and said he believes he will be one of the top defensemen in the league for years to come. He has some offensive instincts that forwards would have driving the puck to the net, protecting it and taking it to the post because hes played up there before, McLellan said. And hes very good on the blue line. Hes a hybrid. Burns has played 453 career games since joining the Wild as an 18-year-old rst-round pick. He has 55 goals and 128 assists in his career, but has not played in the postseason the past three years. Now he joins a team that has been one of the best in the league the past few seasons. To not make the playoffs, its really hard to look back at your year and feel good about it, Burns said. To get a chance to play with a great team like San Jose is pretty amazing. I cant wait to get there. Burns, the Wilds rst pick in 2003, was probably their most tradable asset. The Wild have missed the playoffs for three straight years, and general manager Chuck Fletcher spoke of the need to aggressively add young players to keep up with the rest of the league. We werent looking to trade Brent Burns, but it came together quickly and in the course of discussing things with Doug Wilson, the pieces came together, Fletcher said after the draft in Minnesota. Fletcher lauded the addition of Setoguchi, but also was very high on Coyle, who played this past season at Boston University. We feel hes one of the top young power forwards in the game, Fletcher said. We gave up a very important piece in Brent Burns, but our timeframe needs to be stretched back a bit and we need to add more young players. We very quickly assembled a lot of young talent.

Setoguchi got dealt a day after signing a $9 million, threeyear contract. He said after reaching that deal that he couldnt be happier, calling San Jose the best place to play in the NHL. It will no longer be his home in a move that he said took him be surprise. Its tough to leave there, Setoguchi said. Ive been there so long and know so many people there. Ive grown to love the city and the organization. That will be tough. But you cant expect to be there forever. Now you have to make new friends and start all over. Setoguchi overcame a lackluster start last season before nishing with 22 goals and 19 assists in the regular season. He added seven goals and three assists in the playoffs, including overtime goals to beat Los Angeles and Detroit in the rst two rounds. He provides a needed scoring threat for the Wild, whose 203 goals were the fth fewest in the regular season. Setoguchi has 84 goals in four seasons in the NHL, including a career-high 31 two years ago. He also has 75 assists in 267 games and has one of the best shots on the Sharks. The Wild used the pick acquired in the deal to draft center Zack Phillips from Saint Johns of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Quite the opposite of me, I think she was much more aggressive than I was in the beginning. But then I just kind of got my rhythm a little bit and started playing better. Wozniacki, who will face Jarmila Gajdosova, reached the fourth round at Wimbledon the past two years but has never made it to the quarternals. Despite her No. 1 ranking, she has never won a major title, losing at the 2009 U.S. Open to Kim Clijsters in her only Grand Slam nal. Wozniacki leads the tour this year with ve titles, but lost in the third round at the French Open to extend her drought at the majors. She is guaranteed to hold onto the No. 1 ranking at least until August. I think I deserve to be where I am, Wozniacki said. I won so many tournaments already, ve this year. Im playing good tennis. Im young. Im competitive. My time will come. Wozniacki was asked about being put on Court 2, rather than Centre Court or Court 1. Five-time champion Serena Williams was asked Thursday why she and sister Venus, a ve-time champion, had been scheduled on Court 2 while the top men had played only on the two main courts. The Williams sisters have combined to win nine of the last 11 Wimbledon titles. Obviously I think I deserve to play on one of the bigger courts, Wozniacki said.

Lou Marson walked and Jack Hannahan followed with an RBI single to drive in pinchrunner Shelley Duncan and make it 3-0. Sanchez walked the bases loaded in the three nal beginning Monday.

South Carolina back in College World Series championship match up


OMAHA, Neb. The South Carolina Gamecocks are getting a reputation for being drama kings. Adam Matthews scored in the bottom of the 13th inning Friday night after Virginia reliever Cody Winiarski botched two throws while elding

Brady Thomas singled leading off the 13th against Winiarski. Matthews came in to run and advanced when Winiarski pivoted and threw wildly trying to get him at second on Peter Mooneys bunt. Robert Beary followed with another bunt. Winiarski tried to get Matthews at third, but the low throw got away from the third baseman, allowing the winning run to score.

Even though he beat me before, to beat him at Wimbledon is the most special. Im happy to pay him back here on this wonderful court. Earlier, top-ranked Caroline Wozniacki, pursuing another bid for her rst Grand Slam title, made only one unforced error in defeating Virginie Razzano 6-1, 6-3 to move into the third round. The 20-year-old Dane was at the top of her game, downing the 96th-ranked Frenchwoman in 66 minutes in sunny conditions on Court 2 at the All England Club. Wozniacki, who extended her career record against Razzano to 5-0, took command of the match from the beginning and was never in trouble. Razzano saved three match points at 5-2 down in the second set and another in the next game before Wozniacki hit a service winner into the corner to close the match. I served pretty well today and ... dictated quite a few of the points, she said. I was happy about the game. In another early womens match, 2004 champion Maria Sharapova recovered from a slow start to beat 17-year-old British wild card Laura Robson 7-6 (4), 6-3 on Court 1. The Russian trailed 4-1 in the rst set, and then 4-2 in the tiebreaker, before taking charge against the former Wimbledon junior champion.

It will snap Edwards streak of 210 consecutive starts the longest active streak in the Nationwide Series. We felt like as a team that we needed more practice on the Cup side, Edwards said. For Logano, the qualifying run was a muchneeded boost for a struggling driver. After closing last season strong, he was picked by many to make the 12-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup championship this year. But hes had a rocky start to the year, and has just two top-10 nishes through the rst 15 races. Hes ranked 23rd in points. Starting rst Sunday will give him his rst lap led at Sonoma, and in two previous starts, hes not nished higher than 19th. Weve been going through a bit of a drought, so this is going to help us a lot, Logano said. I really think the big thing today is self-condence in me and the team and giving us momentum.

Andy Roddick, a three-time nalist at Wimbledon, was knocked out in the third round Friday.
Polanco charged hard, barehanded the ball and just beat Suzuki with a strong, off-balance throw. With two outs and a runner on second, rst baseman Ryan Howard made a diving stop going to his right on a hard grounder by Jemile Weeks. His toss to rst was wide, but Worley made the grab and kept his foot on the base. Moscoso got help in the third from center elder Ryan Sweeney, who robbed Jimmy Rollins of extra bases with a diving grab on a drive to right-center.

Bay: New Transformers better than previous sequel

By Sandy Cohen

LOS ANGELES Director Michael Bay promises that the third Transformers movie is way better than the second. The 46-year-olds pride was bruised after part two of the franchise, 2009s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, did a bang-up job at the box ofce (bring-

ing in more than $400 million domestically) but was roundly beat-up by critics. Rolling Stones Peter Travers said the movie was so beyond bad, it carves out its own category of godawfulness. It also won the Razzie that year for worst director, worst script and worst lm. Now, Bay is back with Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which opens in IMAX 3-D on Tuesday night and goes wide at midnight Wednesday. When asked to describe the new movie, Bay

said, its a lot better than No. 2. This one is much more of a mystery, he said, sitting at a shady outdoor table on the Paramount lot. Its really epic in scope, its got more heart. Its kind of back down to basics. Movie two, we kind of went off on a tangent. That tangent brought Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) and his giant robot friends and foes to Egypt, where he and See SEQUEL, Page 19

eil Patrick Harris opened this years Tony Awards ceremony with a show-stopping number with a simple message: Broadway is not just for gays anymore. The whole song was, of course, a joke Broadway has never been only for any one sector of the population, despite the many stereotypes often bandied about, many of which were even listed in the song. But the overall message was clear: The world of musical theater really has something for everybody, and theres never been a better time for the new experiences that Broadway has in store. It only takes a brief look at the Broadway marquees of recent years to see just how true Harris statement is. This year saw revivals of two time-honored comedy classics Anything Goes, starring Broadway big shot Sutton Foster and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, starring Daniel Radcliffe. Meanwhile, Trey Parker and Matt Stone won big at this years Tony Awards for their new musical The Book of Mormon, a satire featuring riffs on religion, musical theater itself, and, of course, scatological humor (What did you expect? They are the guys who created South Park). And the boulevard also houses shows that run the gamut of topics, styles and time periods, from the ultimate long-runner of Phantom of the Opera to the big-budget bust of Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark. And to nd out what the world of live musical theater has to offer, you dont need to take the trip to New York; in fact, you dont even need a plane ticket theres a plethora of opportunities available here on the Bay Area. This year, both regional theaters and touring companies are bringing

Columbo star, Peter Falk, dies at 83

By Frazier Moore

NEW YORK The best way to celebrate Peter Falks life is to savor how Columbo, his signature character, fortied our lives. Thanks to Falks affectionately genuine portrayal, Lt. Columbo established himself for all time as a champion of any viewer who ever felt less than graceful, elegant or well-spoken. Falk died Thursday at age 83 in his Beverly Hills, Calif., home, according to a statement released Friday by family friend Larry Larson. But Columbo lives on as the shining ideal of anyone with a smudge on his tie, whose car isnt the sportiest, who often seems clueless, who gets dissed by fancy people. As a police detective, Columbos interview technique was famously disjointed, with his inevitable awkward afterthought (Ahhh,

theres just one more thing...) that tried the patience of his suspect as he was halfway out the door. Columbo was underestimated, patronized or simply overlooked by nearly everyone he met especially the culprit. And yet Columbo, drawPeter Falk ing on inner pluck for which only he (and an actor as skilled as Falk) could have accounted, always prevailed. Contrary to all evidence (that is, until he nailed the bad guy), Columbo always knew what he was doing. Even more inspiring for viewers, he was unconcerned with how other people saw him. He seemed to be perfectly happy with himself, his life, his pet basset, Dog, his wheezing

Peugeot, and his never-seen wife. A squat man chewing cigars in a rumpled raincoat, he stands tall among TVs most self-assured heroes. What viewer wont take solace forever from the lessons Columbo taught us by his enduring example? Columbo he never had a rst name presented a refreshing contrast to other TV detectives. He looks like a ood victim, Falk once said. You feel sorry for him. He appears to be seeing nothing, but hes seeing everything. Underneath his dishevelment, a good mind is at work. On another occasion, he described Columbo as an ass-backwards Sherlock Holmes. As a person, he was like Columbo. He was exactly the same way: a great sense of humor, constantly forgetting things, said Charles Engel, an NBCUniversal executive who worked with Falk on Columbo and was his neighbor

and longtime friend. He remembered Falk as a brilliant actor and an amazingly wonderful, crazy guy, and said a script was in place for a two-hour Columbo special, but Falks illness made the project impossible. In a court document led in December 2008, Falks daughter Catherine Falk said her father was suffering from Alzheimers disease. Somehow ttingly, Falk the perfect choice to play Columbo failed to be the rst choice. Instead, the role was offered to easygoing crooner Bing Crosby. Fortunately, he turned it down. With Falk in place, Columbo began its run in 1971 as part of the NBC Sunday Mystery Movie series, appearing every third week. The show became by far the most popular of the three mysteries, the others being McCloud and McMillan and Wife.

9,000 feet, I devoured a heaping plate of tagliolini pasta with meat from the roe deer, a small regional species, while taking in a 360-degree view over the Dolomites most striking peaks and valleys. To the east is the broad basin with swanky Cortina, Italys answer to Aspen and St. Moritz. The imposing peaks of the Sella Group rise to the west, carved into surreal shapes from the coral-reef-and-volcanic rock mixture that emerged millions of years ago to form the range. The Marmolada glacier glittered in the August sun to the south. In the cheerful buzz of conversations in Italian and German at the communal outdoor tables, I suddenly realized that I have never seen a place where the majestic beauty of nature contrasts more with the tragic scratches of human folly. The same trails where athletic mountaineers and fashion-conscious day-trippers with poodles in tow le up and down were carved by hand by the Austrian-Hungarian and Italian armies, which fought bitter trench battles here during World War I. Less than a century later, mountain-lovers from the former enemies vie for position down improbable tunnels hewn through the sheer rock face to shoot only the perfect Alpine photo. The sole animosity I witnessed was directed toward a pesky leash-less poodle that dangerously darted between legs on the steepest stretch of trail. (No, Prada-clad maam, I was not trampling your dog, I was nimbly trying to avoid falling down a ravine.) Three generations ago, bloodshed marked the gain of each meter in the stalemated front line. Today, the trailhead parking lot, with license plates spanning the European Union from Portugal to Romania, is itself evidence of a borderless continent. About halfway up the mountain from the Falzarego Pass to Lagazuoi, at the snow line past fragrant shrubby pines, tiny daisies and Though he didnt initially embrace the technology, the lm lent itself to 3-D because just the size differential between robots and humans, the director said. You can really feel it. Shooting in 3-D affected his lming style, requiring longer shots and wider frames. Its more expensive and more time consuming, but ultimately Bay found he enjoyed sculpting with space and pushing the boundaries of the technology. He shot more than half the footage with 3D cameras, including soaring images captured by wing-suited stuntmen ying off of highrise buildings. We were able to strap that camera on things that its never been on before, he said. You look at it and you just know its real. You cant fake that stuff. Only 10 to 15 percent of the movie is completely computer generated. The remaining footage was carefully converted from at images to dimensional ones by a team of more than 5,000 artists who spent a year on the project. Even Spielberg gave the 3-D his

Italy: Hiking and driving the Dolomites Great Road

By Giovanna DellOtro

If You Go
ITALYS DOLOMITES: has information from lodging to hiking and historical attractions. Summer season runs to September. Most mountain huts, called rifugi, reopen for the winter season in late November through March. The fastest way to Cortina is from Venice, which has an international airport.

CORTINA DAMPEZZO, Italy Raniero Campigotto, the owner of a mountain hut nearly 7,000 feet up in the Dolomites range, has resigned himself to the impossibility of serving dinner without having his guests jump up mid-fork through the polenta and grilled sausage and run outside. They are trying to catch enrosadira, the term from a local language called Ladin for the stunning moment when the setting sun makes gray spires glow iridescent pink in this mountain range in northeastern Italy. Picture the jutting rock formations of the southwestern United States, substitute the desert oor with a sea of dark-green spruce forest, and you have what some will argue is the most breathtaking landscape in the Alps. Ive always lived here, said 43-year-old Campigotto. But sometimes I stop in my tracks, enchanted by certain sunsets and certain dawns. Last summer, I returned to the area where I had spent my favorite childhood winter skiing breaks, this time for a combined hiking and driving visit along the Grande Strada delle Dolomiti, the Dolomites Great Road. It stretches just south of the Italian-Austrian border for about 70 miles, starting at Cortina dAmpezzo, a couple of hours north of Venice. Right before entering town, a road sign reads Bon azeto, welcome in Ladin, the ancient language spoken only by an estimated 30,000 inhabitants in the Dolomites. The road then hikes right up to Campigottos Col Gallina rifugio (mountain shelter) at Falzarego Pass and eventually ends in Bolzano/Bozen in the autonomous and bilingual region of Trentino-Alto Adige/Sudtirol. The highlight for me was a strenuous fourhour round-trip hike from Col Gallina to Rifugio Lagazuoi where, on its terrace at


Rifugi offer both private rooms and bunks as well as meals. In the Falzarego Pass area, try Col Gallina, rri/ospitalita/ColGallina/index.html , just off the Great Road, or Lagazuoi, rri/ospitalita/RifLagazuoi/index.html , which you can only reach by gondola or a strenuous hike. pack, they went up armed carrying 90 pounds. On a cloudless summer day, it was indeed staggering to read on the many bilingual museum panels of men who shivered through subfreezing storms, hunkered down on the opposite side of a rock face in an improbable high-altitude standoff. Even the Great Road was built for strategic reasons, but it is virtually impossible to visualize war among the bursts of red petunias cascading down wooden balconies in its merry villages dominated by onion-steeple churches. Leaving the Falzarego Pass on SR48, the road precipitously descends into a deep valley, with walls of giant firs allowing a few glimpses of remote chalets, the ruined castle of Andraz and the pastel spires above, some towering above 10,000 feet. critics. Youve got to do movies that you like and you feel in your gut and hopefully the audience likes. This time, the sprawling story culminates with skyscrapers toppling on Chicagos Michigan Avenue. Peter Cullen, who voices lead Autobot Optimus Prime, said Bay was like the chief of his own army during the making of Transformers. I compare him to Norman Schwarzkopf, you know, Stormin Norman. Heres a guy in charge of this massive undertaking, and he gets it done, said the veteran voice actor. Despite a history of action-packed boxofce juggernauts, Bay said with the longer shots and 3-D action scenes, this one really tops myself. LaBeouf said pride also had a lot to do with it. Everybody just red on another level on this movie, he said. We all have a lot of pride, you know. And so everybody came to really play this time.

The Grande Strada delle Dolomiti, the Dolomites Great road,stretches for about 70 miles just south of the Italian-Austrian border.
violets, hikers with flashlights and safety equipment can leave the main trail and go straight up the mountain through tunnels carved during the 1914-1918 Great War. Tunnels, machine-gun nests and impossibly cramped living quarters are all part of the free Museo allaperto del Lagazuoi, one of several World War I open-air museums in the area that provide a striking introduction to this forgotten history. People can experience rsthand what those soldiers suffered through, Campigotto said. We have a hard time walking up with a backthumbs-up, Bay said. Spielberg said to me, This is the best 3-D Ive ever seen, the director proudly recalled. And, you know, he doesnt blow smoke. Transformers: Dark of the Moon opens with the historic American moon landing, which ends up being more than an exploratory mission advancing the U.S. space program and national pride. It turns out a Cybertronian spaceship crash-landed there, and the astronauts are there to investigate. Like the second Transformers ick, this story spans the globe, from China to Africa to Angkor Wat. The lm has its world premiere this week in Moscow, which became a billiondollar movie market in 2010. The last Transformers was Chinas biggest boxofce hit to date. Bay said international test screenings of No. 3 have impressed audiences so far, and he makes his movies for audiences, not critics. Honestly, theyve had a eld day making fun of me, but people go to my movies in droves, Bay said. You cant do movies for

the noble Autobots fought to save humankind and the Earth and the sun from the evil Decepticons. LaBeouf said the second lm was just far too complicated, but volume three is simple enough to be able to enjoy. ... Its without a doubt our best lm. Besides a more straightforward plot, Transformers: Dark of the Moon introduces new cast members Frances McDormand, John Malkovich, Patrick Dempsey, Ken Jeong and Victorias Secret model Rosie HungtingtonWhiteley, who replaces Megan Fox as Sams love interest. (Bay told GQ magazine that executive producer Steven Spielberg demanded he re Fox after she compared Bay to Hitler.) Dark of the Moon also introduces a whole new dimension as Bays first 3-D film.

some of the best of Broadway to California, showcasing both timeless classics and more recent hits. Those looking for family fare can look to Broadway By the Bay, performing The Music Man at the Fox Theatre in Redwood City. A hallmark for such songs as Trouble, Til There Was You and 76 Trombones, the musical is the story of a roguish con man who charms his way into a small town in the Midwest under the pretense of forming a marching band of the towns children. The show runs from July 14 to July 31, and I feel I can attest that the show not only is perfect for families (after all, as my parents love to remind me, The Music Man was the rst live musical I ever saw) but will also be very good, having seen and participated in enough shows at Broadway By the Bay to know its outstanding productions. For somewhat more adult-oriented entertainment, theres Avenue Q, presented by San Jose Stage Company at the San Jose Stage Theater in surprise, surprise San Jose. The show looks like Sesame Street but sounds like South Park; as one of the Broadway posters explains, the show is 80% Tony-Winning Hilarity, 10% Adult Situations, 10% Foam Rubber. Even listing some of the more memorable songs would either spoil the jokes or run afoul of whats appropriate

to print in a newspaper; the most Ill say is that the show, which runs until July 17, turns its irreverent spotlight on everything from relationships to racism to Gary Coleman, and includes a song about the Internet that has reached memetic levels of popularity. Those willing to brave a trip to the city can nd the touring company of my personal favorite musical, Billy Elliot, at the Orpheum in San Francisco from June 27 until Sept. 17. Based on the 2000 movie, the musical follows a young boy in a mining town in Northern England in the 1980s that discovers a love of and a talent for ballet, even as his family struggles to deal with the United Kingdom miners strike. Though a hefty amount of swearing makes the show a little less than suitable for a family outing, I cant stress enough how incredible the musical is on the whole, featuring stellar music, an inspiring story and 12-year-olds doing dance steps I could hardly dream of replicating. None of my descriptions quite do justice in describing all there is to appreciate about each of these musicals, and my list of opportunities this summer is far from complete. But, just like with Harris song from the Tony Awards, I hope my message remains clear: The world of musical theater truly does have something for everybody, and much of it can be found right here in the Bay Area.

Denham said ignorance is too often expressed in the media. Fear is promoted toward Muslims who share the same values as Americans. The media neglects any substantive representation of where the majority of Americans actually stand: a shared commitment to tolerance and freedom, she said. The Congregational Church of Belmont wants to integrate the Muslim community by reducing stereotypes created by the war against Iraq, Denham added. So often Muslims are expressed as terrorists, Denham said. This is not true. They come to America to love our way of life. We need to expand our understanding so that we can relax and love each other. Anwar said he hopes the event will create awareness within people: Sharing and caring for humanity, caring for other fellow beings, and carrying moral and ethical values pertain to all human beings. We as individuals live in one society no matter how diverse we are, Anwar said. We must be tolerant among one another, understand one another and understand our differences in faith and hopefully diversity can unite and bring Springsteen, Police, Michael Jackson, Billy Joel really whatever you like, there will be a band performing to match your taste. While also free, there are reserved seats available. Those pre-paid spots only take up a small portion of the area but act as a fundraiser to keep the concerts going. Seats range from $15 for a single show, $50 to $70 for a monthly pass or $240 for a season pass. Such seats can be purchased by visiting and at the Fox Theatre box ofce, located at 2223 Broadway, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays. Belmont recently kicked off its 35th summer concert series at Twin Pines Park meadow, 1225 Ralston Ave. End your weekend by bringing a chair and indulging in refreshments from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Running through July, the series features Mixed Nuts, a rock and pop band, this weekend, country group The Fred McCarty Band, July 3, rock group The Jack Aces July 10, California good time tunes from Blue July 17, danceable hits from Highwater Blues July 24 and Cajun-style ddling by Tom Rigney and Flambeau July 31. Concerts in Foster City, Burlingame, San Carlos and San Bruno start in July. Like Belmont, Burlingame offers music Sunday afternoons starting July 3. From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Washington Park, 850 Burlingame Ave., a variety of originated at a poorly installed weld on the lengthwise seam of the transmission line, which PG&E previously believed was seamless. Consumer advocates said shoddy accounting puts people at risk, and they wondered whether PG&E might reveal other erroneous records in the future. One day the records say one thing, the next day they say they say something else, the next day there are no records to be found or they were written in erasable ink, said Mark Toney, executive director The Utility Reform Network, based in San Francisco. The story keeps changing, and the more we learn, the more it sounds like there were repeated early warning signals on that line that were never followed up on. PG&E spokesman Brian Swanson initially said the small methane leak detected in 1988 was the result of a defect in a douattorney and returns to court July 6 for a preliminary hearing with a 90-minute estimate. Wagstaffe said the cases emerging details and Violas courtroom behavior will lead to careful review of his exact intent and possible mental issues. We charged the case because it was a very dangerous circumstance but we will proceed carefully while reviewing what we have here, Wagstaffe.

us together. Bridges of understanding are built by spending time with one another, sharing meals together and reaching across boundaries, Denham said. Opportunities are created when we realize we have the same values and want to attain the same goals. The more we know, the less we are afraid, she said. Wolf said it is sacred and fundamental to look upon our faith and draw our traditions to shed light on a collective value. When we share our teachings, we are able to learn our differences from other faith communities and identify common grounds, Wolf said. In addition to the event, worships will be conducted through prayers of different styles and traditions. We all value the golden rule: it is foundational to all faiths to do unto others as you would have them do unto you, Denham said. Were all based on the idea that love is central. Our religious texts grew from the same traditions. For more information, call the church at 650-593-4547 or visit melodies including salsa, rock and country will be played. San Carlos and Foster City get the party started on the same day Thursday, July 8. Both offer shows from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. San Carlos shows held at Burton Park, 1017 Cedar St. run through Aug. 19.

repairmen involved in the 1988 incident recalled a leak springing from a seam running lengthwise down the pipe, as the document given to NTSB in May states. One worker said he remembered the leak stemming from a girth weld, a problem that also appeared in several other spots on the high-pressure line coursing through bedroom communities south of San Francisco, according to the ling. Following the explosion, the California Public Utilities Commission ordered the company to hand over decades worth of safety records for its pipelines, and this weeks release includes more than 16,000 documents on welding problems.

Swanson would not say earlier this week whether the company told federal investigators about employees conicting accounts, but he subsequently claried that the company notied NTSB about the new information at an undetermined later date. The NTSB declined to comment on the discrepancy, and CPUC spokeswoman Terrie Prosper said the commission only heard of the prior leaks as the information emerged through the NTSBs investigation into the San Bruno blast.

One of LulzSecs victims says the group sets itself apart from the rest of the hacker underground with its posturing and bragging on Twitter. Most of the hacker groups that are pretty well known out there ... dont really like to aunt their ndings. Theyll do it among their peers, but not typically the public, said Karim Hijazi, a security expert whose emails were ransacked by the hacking group last month. LulzSec made its name by defacing the site of the U.S. Public Broadcasting Service, or PBS, with an article claiming that rapper Tupac Shakur was still alive. It has since claimed hacks on major entertainment companies, FBI partner organizations, a pornography website and the Arizona Department of Public Safety, whose documents were leaked to the Web late Thursday. In the interview, the hacker promised more embarrassing leaks, saying LulzSec was already sitting on at least 5 gigabytes of government and law enforcement data from across the world, which it planned to release in the next three weeks. The claim couldnt be independently veried. In the past, the group has targeted U.S. and British government sites. Many past attacks have yielded sensitive information including usernames and passwords nearly 38,000 of them, in the case of Sony Pictures. Others appear to have been just for kicks. In a stunt last week, LulzSec directed hundreds of telephone calls to the customer service line of, a New Jerseybased manufacturer of custom refrigerator magnets. LulzSec uses a similar technique to temporarily bring down websites, ooding them with bogus Internet trafc. This is an old


Publicity-seeking hackers on attack spree


Around the World

15 die as Syrians march demanding Assads ouster
BEIRUT Defying government guns, thousands of Syrian protesters poured down city streets and a main highway Friday to press demands for President Bashar Assads ouster. Security forces opened re, killing at least 15 people, including two children, activists said. Syrias streets have become the stage for a test of endurance between a 3-month-old pro-democracy movement, bloodied but resilient, and an iron-sted but embattled regime. The latest round of protests and killings came as international pressure mounted on Assad. The Syrian opposition says 1,400 people have been killed as the government has cracked down on a movement demanding an end to four decades of Assad family rule a popular uprising renewed each Friday after weekly Muslim prayers.

LONDON Can you be famous if no one knows your name? A new band of hackers is giving it its best shot, trumpeting its cybercapers in an all-sirens-ashing publicity campaign. Lulz Security has stolen mountains of personal data in a dozen different hacks, embarrassing law enforcement on both sides of the Atlantic while boasting about the stunts online. The group, whose name draws on Internetspeak for laughs, has about 270,000 followers on the messaging site Twitter. In an online interview via Skype with the Associated Press late Friday, one LulzSec member said the groups current hacking campaign was about attacking the common oppressors which he identied as banks, governments (and) law enforcement. Not all of them of course, but they know who they are, he said. The hacker refused to reveal any personal details beyond identifying himself as male, but he proved membership in LulzSec by posting a prearranged message to the groups popular Twitter account following the interview. The hacker agreed to the online interview in response to an email request sent by the AP to the groups website registrant. The group may cause serious damage, but its online persona often veers into wackiness. LulzSecs Twitter mascot is a black-and-white cartoon dandy that looks like a cross between Mr. Peanut and The New Yorker magazines monocle man. Its rambling messages are peppered with references to YouTube sensation Rebecca Black, the Dungeons and Dragons role playing game and tongue-in-cheek conspiracy theories.

Hard-line Sunni voice gains audience in Bahrain


A new breed of hackers,such as Lulz Security, publically trumpet their exploits.

hacker standby that doesnt require much sophistication. Members also break in to sites to steal data. That requires more skill and often involves duping employees into revealing passwords. LulzSecs actions against government and corporate websites are reminiscent of those taken by the much larger, more amorphous group known as Anonymous. That group has launched Internet campaigns against the music industry, the Church of Scientology, and Middle Eastern dictatorships, among others.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates A visit by Bahrains king to Sunni supporters this week was also something of a royal blessing for a rising political star: an Islamic scholar who claims the Gulf kingdom is under threat from both foe Iran and ally America. Once consigned to the fringes, Sunni hard-liners like Abdullatif al-Mahmood are suddenly gaining a receptive audience amid a government crackdown on pro-democracy protesters. Its another sign of Bahrains deeply polarized atmosphere as the kingdoms Sunni rulers try to open talks with the Shiite opposition after violence that has left 31 people dead since February. Al-Mahmoods group appears to be tapping into deep-rooted fears over Shiite giant Iran and growing questions about commitment from Washington, which bases the U.S. Navys 5th Fleet in Bahrain.
