Watershed moment for rail

Updated high-speed rail business plan includes projections on cost,ridership
By Bill Silverfarb

The California High-Speed Rail Authority will release an update to its often criticized and recently delayed business plan next week that will include new projections on construction costs, ridership and passenger fares.

Joe Simitian

The business plan, first released in 2008, has been called awed by the rail authoritys detractors for containing lofty ridership projections and

unrealistic cost estimates. This is a watershed moment for high-speed rail, said state Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto. After three years, the public is expecting some good answers to some obvious questions like what is the cost and how will it be paid. Multiple sources, including the states Legislative Analysts Ofce,

has pointed to aws in the authoritys original business plan. It lacked credibility from beginning to end, Assemblyman Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, said about the 2008 business plan. Every estimate has been off, way off. If the update to the business plan is unsatisfactory, Hill said, it might be time to drop support for the project.

If the project has changed drastically in scope and magnitude, then voters may need to revisit it, he said. The 2008 business plan assumes the entire system will be completed by 2030 and initially called for a four-track system to be constructed from San Francisco to San Jose at a

Murder defendant cannot delay trial

Millbrae man to defend himself in court,plans to claim insanity
By Michelle Durand

The Millbrae murder defendant recently named his own attorney will not be given more time to prepare for a trial in which he will argue to jurors he shot his friend in the head while insane. Judge Mark Forcum upheld an Oct. 31 trial start date for Teyseer Zaid Terry Najdawi, 28, after saying he had plenty of time to prepare by the time jury selection and evidence motions are done, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti. When they grant the motion [allowing him to be his own attorney] it is with the Teyseer understanding he is ready to go, Guidotti Najdawi said. Before Najdawi begins trial Monday, though, he will rst ask Forcum on Friday to dismiss the entire case. Najdawi is charged with murder and the use of a gun in the July 8, 2008 death of Jack Chu, 27. Chus body was found slumped in a car at the intersection of Chula Vista and Sanchez avenues in Burlingame and connectJD CRAYNE/DAILY JOURNAL

Allowing out-of-district children to continue to attend San Carlos schools has been a topic of interest for months and one the Board of Trustees will take up Thursday. San Carlos schools are facing enrollment issues. As a charter district, it previously welcomed students from other communities. That practice was stopped a few years back as enrollment issues became apparent. Since then, the debate has long been about fourth grade students. Should those children be allowed to attend the local middle schools? Superintendent

Thought for the Day

Without a song,each day would be a century.
Mahalia Jackson (1911-1972)

This Day in History


The legendary Pony Express ofcially ceased operations, giving way to the transcontinental telegraph. (The last run of the Pony Express was completed the following month.) In 1774, the First Continental Congress adjourned in Philadelphia. In 1825, the Erie Canal opened in upstate New York, connecting Lake Erie and the Hudson River. In 1881, the Gunght at the O.K. Corral took place in Tombstone, Ariz. In 1911, The Queen of Gospel, singer and civil rights activist Mahalia Jackson, was born in New Orleans. In 1942, Japanese planes badly damaged the aircraft carrier USS Hornet in the Battle of Santa Cruz Islands during World War II. (The Hornet sank early the next morning.) In 1972, national security adviser Henry Kissinger declared, Peace is at hand in Vietnam. In 1979, South Korean President Park Chung-hee was shot to death during a dinner party along with his chief bodyguard by the head of the Korean Central Intelligence Agency, Kim Jaekyu, who was later executed. In 1980, Israeli President Yitzhak Navon became the rst Israeli head of state to visit Egypt. In 1994, Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin of Israel and Prime Minister Abdel Salam Majali of Jordan signed a peace treaty during a ceremony at the Israeli-Jordanian border attended by President Bill Clinton. Ten years ago: President George W. Bush signed the USA PATRIOT Act, giving authorities unprecedented ability to search, seize, detain or eavesdrop in their pursuit of possible terrorists. Former nurses aide Chante Mallard struck a homeless man, Gregory Biggs, with her car on a Fort Worth, Texas, highway; Biggs, who became lodged in the windshield, died after Mallard refused to seek assistance for him and instead enlisted the help of a friend and his cousin to dispose of his body after he died. (Mallard was later convicted of murder and sentenced to 50 years in prison.)

More than 200 people gathered for the 10th Annual NFL Alumni Red Ribbon Day Tuesday to warn children about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. Started by Chair Carolyn Hoskins, the program was inspired by the death of a Ralston Middle School student who overdosed on ecstasy. This years event featured former San Francisco 49er Eason Ramson who told the children about his past which included time at San Quentin State Prison from drug-related crimes. He has been drug free 12 years and is a tremendous inspiration to both children and adults. Ramson was one speaker who spoke with students about the perils of drugs and alcohol. Students from Sequoia High School in Redwood City, St. Pius in Redwood City, Nesbit School in Belmont, Henry Ford School in Redwood City and The MidPeninsula Boys and Girls Club were in attendance. The event coincides with Red Ribbon

Father of artificial intelligence dies


Stolen vehicle. A vehicle was stolen on the intersection of Colby Way and Pacic Heights Boulevard before 4:57 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20. Hazard. A big truck knocked wires down at the intersection of City Park Way, Crystal Springs Road and Oak Avenue before noon. Thursday, Oct. 20. Burglary. A vehicles passenger-side window was smashed on the 200 block of San Bruno Avenue before 9:56 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 20.

PALO ALTO John McCarthy, a pioneer in articial intelligence technology and creator of the computer programming language often used in that eld, has died. He was 84. Stanford University, where McCarthy was a professor for four decades, announced McCarthys death Monday. The school said he died at his Palo Alto home but did not provide a cause. Tributes to McCarthy ooded into Twitter, where people mourned the loss of another Silicon Valley technology innovator. Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Jobs and C programming creator and UNIX co-developer Dennis

Ritchie died earlier this month. McCarthy was a leader in the articial intelligence eld, coining the term in a 1955 research proposal. He said every aspect of learning or any other feature of intelligence can in John McCarthy principle be so precisely described that a machine can be made to simulate it. He went on to create the MIT Articial Intelligence Lab and the Stanford Articial Intelligence Lab, serving as its director from 1965 to 1980.

In 1958, McCarthy invented the programming language Lisp, which paved the way for voice recognition technology, including Siri, the personal assistant application on the newest iPhone. McCarthy also developed the concept of computer time-sharing, which allowed multiple users to interact with a single computer. That lay the foundation for cloud computing today.

the June 2009 death of Albert Korn, 88, or for allegedly attacking correctional ofcers while jailed after his arrest. Earlier this month, Hutchinson returned to San Mateo County after hospital doctors found him restored to mental tness. Tyler Prosecutors plan to Hutchinson actively argue that Hutchinson remain and progress with a preliminary hearing and possibly trial, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti. The people whove been treating him nd him restored so were going to move forward with that and call witnesses to show that, Guidotti said. Hutchinson is charged with first-degree murder, robbery and special allegations in Korns death two weeks after allegedly encountering him in the mans Hallmark Drive home. Prosecutors say Hutchinson had entered a back window of the house and beat Korn before eeing with his wallet and jewelry in the mans car. Hutchinson was identied as the suspect after being arrested for similar home invasion robberies in West Sacramento. After being convicted in those crimes, he was transferred to the Maguire Correctional Facility where he allegedly attacked two officers providing security for a maintenance worker in his cell. If Hutchinsons competence is afrmed, prosecutors must convince a judge there is enough evidence to hold him to answer on the charges. They must also decide whether to seek the death penalty or life in prison without the possibility of parole. Hutchinson remains in custody without bail.

Defense challenges beating suspects competency California panel

By Michelle Durand

A transient potentially facing Death Row for the fatal beating of an elderly Belmont man is not necessarily competent to stand trial, according to his court-appointed attorneys. At a court appearance to certify his return from a state mental hospital, the defense for Tyler Hutchinson, 23, asked for a hearing on the doctors conclusions to determine if hell be tried or institutionalized for further treatment. Defense attorney Jim Thompson declined to accept a press inquiry on the request. At Tuesdays appearance, another hearing was scheduled for Nov. 8. Unlike sanity, which is the mental state at a specic time, competency is the ability of a person to aid in his or her defense during trial. Hutchinson was sent to Atascadero State Hospital in April before he could be tried in

Poplar interchange design options down to three


The city of San Mateo has whittled down the list of possible design improvements for the dangerous Poplar Avenue interchange at Highway 101 and will forward the options to the citys Public Works Commission for review in November. One of the three options the commission will consider calls for a right-of-way acquisition, although it is unclear what properties may be affected by the purchase. Conditions at the interchange have been looked at for improvements for at least seven years now. A year ago, the city had 13 options on the table to solve trafc conditions at the interchange which were narrowed down to four this past June. Now the Public Works Commission has just three options to look at after the city has conducted several public workshops

on the matter. An increase in accidents prompted San Mateo city ofcials to look at changing the Highway 101 off-ramp at Poplar Avenue and Amphlett Boulevard in 2004. The city began to consider changes at the Poplar Avenue interchange once Caltrans approved the widening of the Peninsula Avenue overpass that divides San Mateo and Burlingame. The design options being looked at now include constructing a center median along Poplar through Idaho Street with a left-turn access at Amphlett Boulevard; closure of the Poplar off-ramp while maintaining the onramp; and closure of the Poplar ramps with construction of southbound on- and off-ramps at Peninsula. The center median along Poplar is considered to be the low-cost alternative that can be constructed quickly. Trafc conicts will be Marin County Deputy District Attorney Aicha Mievis tells the Marin Independent Journal that 47-year-old Kevin Joseph OConnell entered the plea on Monday to a charge of threatening a public ofcial. The charge was reduced to a misdemeanor in exchange for the plea.

reduced on Poplar, however this option increases traffic on Humboldt Street and requires Humboldt to become a truck route. Closing the Poplar off-ramp would increase trafc at the Third Avenue interchange at Highway 101, resulting in more trafc on Third and Fourth avenues in San Mateo. Closure of the Poplar ramps with construction of southbound on- and off-ramps at Peninsula, which involves a tight diamond design, is the most complex and costly of the options. It improves trafc safety on Poplar, but adds trafc to Peninsula and Humboldt. It is the only option that would require right-ofway acquisition.

SACRAMENTO A state panel voted Tuesday to resume a tax break program for clean energy manufacturers after lawmakers found the effort has been working as intended to help foster alternative energy in California. The California Alternative Energy and Advanced Transportation Financing Authority had temporarily suspended the program after awarding $25 million in sales tax breaks to the failed Fremont solar startup Solyndra. After a review of regulations, state Treasurer Bill Lockyer said he still believes in the program. Lockyer is chairman of the authority. We learned from the experience with Solyndras abrupt business failure that we can improve the way we evaluate applicants and enforce state requirements to accomplish that objective, Lockyer spokesman Joe DeAnda said in a statement. We will work with the Legislature and the states own policies and procedures to make the changes we need. Under legislation passed last year, the program allows qualied companies to waive the state sales tax when purchasing manufacturing equipment in California. It was intended to promote the growth of alternative energy manufacturing plants in the state and complement the states push for renewable energy. The state has approved 33 applicants for $104 million in sales tax exemptions, according to the treasurers ofce. Solyndra was among 11 companies that claimed some of those tax breaks. The company closed its doors Aug. 31 and has led for bankruptcy protection. It also is the subject of congressional inquiries because it received a $528 million federal loan that has become an embarrassment to the Obama administration. ple times by police was carrying a gold-painted toy gun in his waistband not a loaded rearm as ofcers had suspected, authorities said.

Ruptured gas pipeline down for two weeks


Voter registration likely up

Elections officials expecting low turnout for November election
By Michelle Durand

SAN FRANCISCO Pacific Gas & Electric Co. ofcials say a major natural gas transmission line that ruptured during a pressure test will be back in service in the next couple of weeks, and customers wont notice any service disruptions in the meantime. A six-foot section along the pipelines longitudinal seam blew during the test Monday on an exposed portion of the line running through a eld in a remote area of Bakerseld. The company says crews are cutting out the damaged section and will replace a 40-foot segment of the line, which was laid in 1950. The testing was part of the utilitys effort to assure regulators its gas system is safe in the wake of last years pipeline explosion in San Bruno, which killed eight people. T h e Belmont/San Carlos chapter of the Sierra C l u b announced its endorsement of Christine Wozniak for Belmont City Council and Dave Warden for Belmont city clerk.

Voter registration is on track to be up in San Mateo County but election ofcials say the lack of a presidential ballot in November likely means turnout wont be as high. As of Friday, just shy of the Monday registration deadline, the Elections Ofce reported 334,355 total voters and is expected to climb as post-marked applications are processed, said David Tom, deputy assessor-county clerk-recorder. Tom anticipates at least another 100,000 or 200,000 once the count is nished but called it a running number up until Election Day. But while the number of county residents registering is climbing, those actually participating in the Nov. 8 election is expected to be low. Election cycles tend to climb in

four-year cycles, hitting a high mark during presidential races before trending back down, Tom said. On average, a non-presidential fall contest brings 26 percent or 27 percent, he said. They are very low for these kind of elections. Were hoping 28 to 29 percent. That would be pretty good, he said. The lack of draw remains disappointing for Tom who said the local contests like city council and school bonds rather than the presidential race are the ones who really affect daily lives. Absentee ballots are requested by approximately 53 percent of voters and have slowed pace a bit more than in neighboring jurisdictions like Santa Clara County which Tom said was 68 percent. As of the Oct. 21 numbers, Democrats still outnumbered

Republicans 172,026 to 68,641 and 81,318 declined to state. With registration closed and the election around the corner, the next effort for the Elections Ofce is opening and processing mail-in ballots which starts Friday. The public is invited to watch and Mark Church, chief elections ofcer and assessor-county clerk-recorder said it will see a variety of activities including training, absentee ballot requests, verifying signatures and packing up equipment for the 208 polling places. This is a very exciting time to visit, said Church in a prepared statement. Right now, nearly every functional team responsible for election administration is fully engaged. The deadline to request an absentee ballot be delivered by mail is Nov. 1. After that point, ballots can

be had in person at either of the two election ofces. The San Mateo Elections Ofce located at 40 Tower Road, San Mateo is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday and Saturday, Nov. 5 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Redwood City Elections ofce located on the rst oor of 555 County Government Center is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday. Those interested in observing the process should contact Elections Supervisor Narda Barrientos at 3125365 or More information about the election is available at

College prices up again as states slash budgets

By Justin Pope

As President Obama prepared to announce new measures Wednesday to help ease the burden of student loan debt, new gures painted a demoralizing picture of college costs for students and parents:

Average in-state tuition and fees at four-year public colleges rose an additional $631 this fall, or 8.3 percent, compared with a year ago. Nationally, the cost of a full credit load has passed $8,000, an alltime high. Throw in room and board, and the average list price for a state school now runs more than

$17,000 a year, according to the twin annual reports on college costs and student aid published Wednesday by the College Board. The large increase in federal grants and tax credits for students, on top of stimulus dollars that prevented greater state cuts, helped keep the average tuition-and-fees

that families actually pay much lower: about $2,490, or just $170 more than ve years ago. But the days of states and families relying on budget relief from Washington appear numbered. And some argue that while Washingtons largesse may have helped some students, it did little to hold down prices.

Patience tested at protest sites

By Meghan Barr

NEW YORK Fed up with petty crime, the all-night racket of beating drums, the smell of human waste and the sight of trampled owers and grass, police and neighbors are losing patience with some of the anti-Wall Street protests around the U.S. In Oakland police in riot gear red tear gas and bean bags before daybreak Tuesday to disperse about 170 protesters who had been camping in front of City Hall for the past two weeks, and 85 people were arrested. The mayor of Providence, R.I., is threatening to go to court within days to evict demonstrators from a park. And businesses and residents near New Yorks Zuccotti Park, the unofcial headquarters of the movement that began in mid-September, are demanding something be done to discourage the hundreds of protesters from urinating in the street and making noise at all hours. A lot of tourists coming down from hotels are so disgusted and disappointed when they see this, said Stacey Tzortzatos, manager of a sandwich shop near Zuccotti Park. I hope for the sake of the city the mayor does close this down. She complained that the protesters who come in by the dozen to use

her bathroom dislodged a sink and caused a ood, and that police barricades are preventing her normal lunch crowd from stopping by. In Philadelphia, city ofcials have been waiting almost two weeks for Occupy Philly to respond to a letter containing a list of health and safety concerns. City Managing Director Richard Negrin said ofcials cant wait much longer to address hazards such as smoking in tightly packed tents, camp layouts that hinder emergency access, and exposure to human waste. They just cant ignore us indenitely, Negrin said Tuesday. Every day that they havent addressed these public safety concerns simply increases the risk. Stephen Campbell, a protester in Boston, said the troublemakers are the minority. We have a policy here: no drugs, no alcohol, he said. Us occupiers really try to stick true to that. Other people who move in, who maybe have an alcohol problem or a drug problem, you know, were not fully equipped to handle things like that. City ofcials in Oakland had initially been supportive of the protesters, with Mayor Jean Quan saying that sometimes democracy is messy. But tensions reached a boiling point after a sexual assault, a severe beating and a fire were reported and paramedics were denied access to the camp, according to city ofcials.

Bad economic mood heading into holidays

Demonstrators march in Oakland

By Marcus Wohlsen

OAKLAND Under cover of darkness early Tuesday, hundreds of police swept into Oaklands Occupy Wall Street protest, ring tear gas and beanbag rounds before clearing out an encampment of demonstrators. In less than an hour, the 2-weekold, miniature makeshift city was in ruins. Scattered across the plaza in front of City Hall were overturned tents, pillows, sleeping bags, yoga mats, tarps, backpacks, food wrap-

pers and water bottles. Signs decrying corporations and police still hung from lampposts or lay on the ground. Later Tuesday, hundreds of protesters gathered at a library and marched through downtown Oakland. They were met by police ofcers in riot gear, and several small skirmishes broke out. The protesters eventually made their way back to City Hall for a game of cat-and-mouse as dusk approached. Police later threw ash bang canisters and red more tear gas as the crowd dispersed up the street.

NEW YORK Americans say they feel worse about the economy than they have since the depths of the Great Recession. And its a bad time for a bad mood because households are starting to make their holiday budgets. It might not be all doom and gloom, though. Sometimes what people say about the economy and how they behave are two different things. Consumer condence fell in October to the lowest since March 2009, reecting the big hit that the stock market took this summer and frustration with an economic recovery that doesnt really feel like one. The Conference Board, a private research group, said its index of consumer sentiment came in at 39.8, down about six points from September and seven shy of what economists were expecting. The reading is still well above where the index stood two and a half years ago, at 26.9. But its not even within shouting distance of 90, what it takes to signal that the economy is on solid footing. Economists watch consumer condence closely because consumer spending accounts for about 70 percent of U.S. economic activity.

The San Carlos City Council at Monday nights meeting agreed to include synthetic turf as part of the Crestview eld renovation plan and will discuss the cost as part of its next budget. Councilman Bob Grassilli recused himself from the vote and Councilman Matt Grocott voted no. The Council also asked for more specics on the cost of electronic information signs and approved redoing the roof of the adult community center. The Redwood City Council unanimously agreed to amend its existing massage ordinance to comply with state law.

Obama waits for Baby emerges from Turkish rubble GOP race to end Survivor-style

By Jim Juhnhenn

SAN FRANCISCO President Barack Obama says hes waiting for the Republican presidential eld to narrow itself down Survivor-style before he starts paying attention to the contenders running to replace him. Im going to wait until everybody is voted off the island, Obama said, referring to the popular reality show in which contestants are voted off in each episode. Obama made the comment in appearance on NBCs Tonight Show, his second stop on Jay Lenos show as sitting president and fourth appearance overall. Obama

taped the appearance in Los Angeles Tuesday morning before heading to San Francisco to raise money for his re-election campaign. In excerpts Barack Obama released ahead of the shows airing Tuesday night, Obama also tackled more serious matters, including the killing last week of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadha. The president said Gadhafi had his chance to loosen his 40-year grip on power and peacefully transition to democracy.

Perry calls for sweeping tax cuts,benefit changes Gadhafi buried in secret site in Libyan desert

ERCIS, Turkey After 48 hours, a miracle emerged from the rubble: a 2-week-old baby girl brought out half-naked but alive from the wreckage of an apartment building toppled by Turkeys devastating earthquake. Rescue workers erupted in cheers and applause Tuesday at sight of the infant and again hours later when her mother and grandmother were pulled out, their survival a ray of joy on an otherwise grim day. The death toll from Sundays 7.2magnitude quake climbed to at least 459 as desperate survivors fought over aid and blocked aid shipments. A powerful aftershock ignited widespread panic that turned into a prison riot in a nearby provincial city. With thousands of quake survivors facing a third night out in the open in near-freezing temperatures, Turkey set aside its national pride and said it would accept international aid offers, even from Israel, with which it has had strained relations.


Rescue workers carry a baby girl from a collapsed building in Ercis,near the eastern Turkish city of Van.
Tuesdays dramatic rescue of three generations of one family was all the more remarkable because the infant, Azra Karaduman, was declared healthy after being own to a hospital in Ankara, the Turkish capital. Television footage showed rescuer Kadir Direk in an orange jumpsuit wriggling into a narrow slit in the pile of concrete and metal, then sliding back out with Azra, clad only in a T-shirt. Praise be! someone shouted. Get out of the way! another yelled as the aid team and bystanders cleared a path to a waiting ambulance.

GRAY COURT, S.C. Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry proposed dramatic tax and spending changes Tuesday, saying he would let Americans choose between a 20 percent at tax and the current system, allow private Social Security accounts and slash government spending and regulation. Perry, seeking to regain the

momentum he enjoyed in late August, said his plan would signicantly spur e c o n o m i c growth. But analysts from the left and right said he would need draRick Perry conian federal budget cuts to avoid massive decits.


MISRATA, Libya Flamboyant and grandiose in life, Moammar Gadha was buried in secrecy and anonymity, laid to rest in an unmarked grave before dawn in the Libyan desert that was home to his Bedouin tribal ancestors. The burial ended the gruesome spectacle of Gadhas decaying

Moammar Gadha

corpse on public display in a cold storage locker at a Misrata warehouse for four days after he was killed in his hometown of Sirte on Oct. 20. The location of the brutal dicta-

tors grave site was not disclosed by the interim government for fear of vandalism by his foes and veneration by his die-hard supporters. Gadha, 69, was buried Tuesday along with his son Muatassim and former Defense Minister Abu Bakr Younis after the military council in the city of Misrata ordered a reluctant Muslim cleric to say the required prayers.

Galvin for San Carlos treasurer

or 24 years, Michael Galvin has served as treasurer for the city of San Carlos. In that time, he has yet to have a challenger for the position. Newcomer Harold Schuette is changing that with his run for the mostly behind-the-scenes position that keeps an eye on the citys nances. Schuette has a wide range of nancial experience, both in small business and working for nancial institutions. However, he acknowledges that Galvin is doing a good job and there is not much he would change about the ofce. So, when the city is facing a host of complicated nancial issues including pension obligations, new contracts for services like police and re and the possibility of state takeaways for redevelopment agencies, is now the right time to make a change in the position? We dont think so. Galvin has a solid grasp on the position and has constantly taken the time and provided his own nancial resources to obtain additional training. The job is to ensure the citys nancial investments are safe, expenditures are

appropriate and that there are internal controls in place to avoid fraud. Galvin seems to have done that job well by providing oversight and perspective from an elected ofcials perspective. He has kept up on the countys investment policy and its changes since it lost millions in the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy. He also keeps a stern eye on the citys own investments to ensure the returns are solid and the funds are both safe and liquid enough to ensure access in an emergency. Schuette seems to be an apt nancier, but is it worth it to make a change to the person keeping an eye on the citys purse strings and create a new learning curve when the city itself is going through so much change? There may be a time in which the citys voters want to consider changing its policy to fold the elected treasurer into an appointed position as other cities have done. But that may be an issue to consider in the future. For now,

Closing the gaps? O

ur progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education. The human mind is our fundamental resource. John F. Kennedy. It was recently reported in the San Mateo County Times that only 75 percent of local graduates head to college. We are told that San Mateo County is on a par with the statewide statistics of public high school graduates who go on to college or university somewhere in this country. As I read this report, many questions came to mind. First, is this considered a good thing? Are they trying for 100 percent? Also, how many of those who enroll in a community college or university end up graduating? (The dropout rate in the rst year of community colleges is high). How much grant money is wasted and how much debt do students incur while they attend these institutions? How many of these kids would be better off if they were trained for a well-paying vocation and how to be a good employee no matter where they work? How many of those who dropped out of high school would have beneted from a high school experience that was relevant to them and would give them skills that might prevent them from inhabiting the streets? Added to this was the concern about the achievement gap that remains for racial and ethnic groups. The percentages enrolling in college: 60 percent Latinos, 66 percent black, 81 percent white and 83 percent Asian. Gary Waddell of the county Ofce of Education thinks that the achievement gap can be closed by getting more of those in the demographic groups in question to enroll and excel in rigorous courses in our secondary schools. Seems much is being overlooked. Has he considered that tightening the screws on those students who are not college material could very likely produce even more dropouts? The education hierarchy seems to be oblivious to the fact that not all teens want to or are able to attend college. And they seem to conveniently ignore the 25 percent who drop out of high school. But the achievement gap will not decrease until many of the cultural disadvantages that are holding such children back are improved. Expecting a child coming from a background of deprivation to be able to even use whatever abilities he may have to the utmost is unrealistic. We must remember that many of these kids may have parents who do not value education and may not speak English. Also, as Jeffrey Sachs explains in The Price of Civilization, When the child is born underweight; raised in a dangerous and stressful environment; subjected to environmental hazards of pollution, noise and other threats; and precluded by poverty from preschool and quality child care, the consequences can be disastrous, not just in childhood but for decades onward. The economic problems of our country and state will only make matters worse. Only four states spend less per pupil than California. Teachers are being laid off, programs cut and California schools have the most students per teacher. How many jobs will be available for college graduates many with huge loans to pay back? Where will well-trained workers come from for the trades and other important jobs that are essential to keep our nation going? Our educational hierarchy needs to get real as less and less money is available for our schools, more parents are unemployed and homelessness and hunger increase. Putting more pressure on children who have so much already going against them is not what they need most. But take heart. A new state law has created a small change in high school curricula. Students will be allowed to count one vocational type class as credit toward graduation. The idea is that this will help some students learn job-market skills, such as keyboarding, medical assisting and metal shop. Supporters say that this may help high schools get away from the one size ts all curricula and help more kids graduate. State Superintendent Tom Torlakson says the law is a move toward restoring relevancy. Opponents (who obviously dont live in the real world) say that all students should be prepared for college and they add that this will lead to two tiers of college prepared and unprepared students. We already have a two track system, said one backer. Its called college or nothing. With so much emphasis on college, many struggling students are falling by the wayside. Even more vocational classes and an alternative type of high school diploma might encourage more teens to stick around and at least get some kind of job training. Does the fact that three out of four high school graduates are headed to college say anything about our education system? Nothing, until a whole lot of questions are answered. This brings to mind one of Ashleigh Brilliants famous quips: All people are different. Thats why everybody should be treated the same. Since 1984, Dorothy Dimitre has written more than 500 columns for various local newspapers. Her email address is

the time Galvin has put in and the experience he has is the best bet to ensure the citys nancial stability.

Letters to the editor

No on Measure H
Editor, I nearly laughed when I read the 11x17, two-sided, four-color, glossy ier from the construction companies nancing Measure H. Truth in advertising laws must not apply. Go back six years to the previous $485 million bond. The bond measure said A YES vote on Measure A will complete the job of modernizing all existing college facilities. /sm/meas/A/ Note the word complete. Did it? No. Because instead of doing what they promised, trustees have been demolishing buildings. In their place? A country club environment with lavish new buildings that provide a membersonly health club and rental facilities for everything from weddings to corporate parties. The extravagant costs for these new buildings are the reason theyre asking for another half a billion dollars. And whos paying for the glossy iers in your mailbox? The construction companies hired to do the work! Visit And vote no on Measure Hoodwinked. the Oct. 13 edition of the Daily journal, challenger Ricardo Ortiz is stated as saying that, the city has often dragged its feet on large projects, like Safeway. I hope Mr. Ortiz is not suggesting that Burlingame should have simply rolled over and acquiesced to Safeways original, intrusive, big-box store plan. It was Safeways refusal to work with the community that caused the delays. Several citizen groups were formed to counter Safeways there is no plan B approach. It was due to their successful efforts that voters were informed about the toxic situation that existed on council and about how important it was to turn out the old, autocratic power elite. This allowed new candidates such as Terry Nagel, who has always had the true welfare of the city at heart, to win a seat on council. Hundreds of people were involved in the effort; it was difficult, and at times, agonizing. But it was a true demonstration of the democratic process at work. Safeway eventually relented and began to work with, and not against the community. The result is a project vastly superior to the original design; one that promises to be a benefit to both Safeway and the city it inhabits.

Adam Rak for San Carlos schools

Editor, We have an opportunity this election to bring new energy and ideas to the San Carlos Elementary School District board. Adam Rak is the right choice for the job. He has signicant experience working on policy issues and in business. He has been an active volunteer in the schools and also served on the successful Measure A committee to ensure critical funding for our schools. Adam understands the issues we are facing and I believe he can bring a thoughtful and balanced approach to the school board. His views on integrating technology and 21st-century learning into the classroom are smart and balanced and will help to enrich the learning experience for our children. We will face some serious challenges over the next few years, particularly the need to address the capacity issues at our schools. We need people on the school board who will work with all stakeholders to nd the right solutions to that and other challenges we will need to tackle. I believe that Adam is up to that task and is the right person to serve on the San Carlos school board.

Netflix shares tank amid backlash

By Barbara Ortutay

NEW YORK Netflix shares plunged Tuesday after the one-time Wall Street favorite revealed a massive departure of subscribers angered by price increases and other questionable changes at the rental service that was created to make entertainment a snap. Netix revealed late Monday that it ended September with 23.8 million U.S. subscribers. Thats down about 800,000 from June and worse than what the company had hinted at before. In September, the company predicted it will lose about 600,000 U.S. customers. And it may get worse. Netix said it expects more defections in coming months. The exodus began after the company raised its prices by as much as 60 per-

cent in July and split up its streaming and DVD rental services. Its website was ooded by comments from angry customers. Many people also canceled service, especially on the DVD-by-mail side. The company is betting that its future is in streaming video, and CEO Reed Hastings has said he expects Netixs DVD subscriptions to steadily decline, much like what has happened to AOL Inc.s dial-up Internet service. But Netix bungled a spin off its DVD-by-mail service, giving it the name Qwikster and creating separate accounts for people who wanted both DVDs and movie streaming. By doing so, the company created what many perceived as a more complicated rental process at a company that began its meteoric rise with a new, easier way of searching for and nding entertainment effortlessly. Netix shares fell $41.34, or 34.8 percent, to $77.50 in late morning trading

Tuesday. The stock is down from more than $300 just 3 1/2 months ago. The last time the stock was trading so low was in April 2010, but that was during its steep ascent. The results prompted a downgrade to Neutral from Buy from Citi Investment Research analyst Mark Mahaney on Tuesday, who also slashed his target price on the stock to $95 from $220. The analyst called the price increase and the abandoned plan to separate Netixs DVD business two major execution errors. Netflix Inc. did report better-thanexpected nancial results for the third quarter, but that was drowned out by the din of subscriber cancellations, expense controls and a one-time tax benet, said Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter. Pachter cut his target price to $82.50 from $110 on Netixs stock and kept his rating at Neutral.

Amazon third quarter net income sinks

By Rachel Metz

SAN FRANCISCO Online retailer Amazon is spending a lot to grow its business, and while this will eventually help its bottom line its currently costing the company on Wall Street. The Seattle-based companys earnings fell short of analyst expectations Tuesday, sinking 73 percent despite revenue growth as Amazon built sales fulllment centers at a rapid clip this year. And its revenue outlook for the current quarter failed to impress investors. Its

stock fell nearly 18 percent in afterhours trading. Inc. earned $63 million, or 14 cents per share, in the third quarter. This compares with $231 million, or 51 cents per share, a year earlier. Analysts polled by FactSet had hoped for much more: 24 cents per share in net income. Revenue climbed 44 percent to $10.9 billion, in line with the nearly $11 billion analyst were looking for. The companys media business, which includes products like books, CDs and DVDs, saw revenue rise 24 percent to $4.2 billion. Amazons revenue from

electronics and other general merchandise rose 59 percent to $6.3 billion. But Amazons operating expenses also climbed, rising 48 percent to $10.8 billion. The increase came mainly from a higher cost of sales. This is the third consecutive quarter in which Amazons expenses have cut into its bottom line. To support its growing business, Amazon has built more than a dozen fulllment centers this year. This ensures that the company can keep up as more people order everything from stuffed animals and power tools from the online retailer.

IBM names its first female CEO

SAN FRANCISCO IBM Corp. ushered in Virginia Rometty as the companys rst-ever female CEO on Tuesday, as Sam Palmisano stepped down from the position. Palmisano, who turned 60 this year, has been CEO for nearly a decade. He Virginia will stay on as chairRometty man. Virginia

Ginni Rometty, 54, is in charge of IBMs sales and marketing, and has long been whispered about by industry watchers as Palmisanos likely heir.

Aragon freshman takes PAL golf title

By Nathan Mollat

Its amazing how quickly fortunes can turn on the golf course. Kelly Fang, a freshman at Aragon, had three birdies shot a 35 on the front nine at Poplar Creek during the Peninsula Athletic Leagues girls individual championship Tuesday and had a six shot lead over Menlo-Athertons Xin Fang, the two-

time defending PAL individual champion. By the time the rst foursome nished the 14th hole, Xin Fang had made up the six-shot decit and Kelly Fang was wobbling. Kelly Fang, however, pulled it together. She made birdie on the par-3 15th and Xin Fang bogeyed the hole. Xin Fang got a stroke back at the 16th, but Kelly Fang made the one-shot lead hold as she captured the PAL championship with an 18-hole score of 76.

I met my standards, Kelly Fang said. It wasnt excessively good or bad. I wanted to shoot under 75, (but) Ill take it (76) any day. Kelly Fang and Xin Fang (no relation) were two of three golfers to qualify for the Central Coast Section tournament next week in Carmel. Any individual who shot 90 or better qualied. Burlingames Allie Economou red a 87 to also earn the trip to the CCS tournament. San Mateos Lisa Sasaki shot an 82, but she had already qual-

ied with the San Mateo team, which captured the PAL team title by going 10-0 this season. Xin Fang followed up her 41 on the front with a 36 on the back. I was surprised to play that bad (on the front 9), Xin Fang said. Thats like the worst Ive shot on the front in a long time. Xin Fang picked up three shots alone on the

Schreck shines at Mt. SAC Panthers pummel

By Julio Lara

Athlete of the Week

The Carlmont cross country program is known for its exceptional talent. The 2011 squad is no exception. And at the forefront of the team, and apparently of everyone else in the Central Coast Section, is Sarah Schreck. The senior proved that shell be a forced to be reckoned with once the CCS meet comes around with her performance at the Mt. SAC Cross Country Invitational. In one of the largest meets in the nation, Schreck set a new personal best time in the 2.93 mile varsity Division I Yellow heat with a time of 18:31. Sarah is always prepared, said a chuckling Carlmont head coach Jennifer Randazzo when asked about her runners mindset going into the meet. She doesnt need much talking to. She pretty much focuses on her races. She has high expectations for herself (and) shes pretty good at reaching her expectations. In a pool of over 600 runners, Schreck posted the fourth-fasted time in Division I, and was the top nisher of any runner representing the Central Coast Section. According to Randazzo, her time of 18:31 was 15 seconds faster than her performance last season. For her efforts, Schreck is the Daily Journal Athlete of the Week. I just wanted her to keep progressing like she has each year, Randazzo said. And the times shes been running this year have shown that she was able to get another time at this meet that was better than last year. Which she did do. Schreck is a varsity veteran. But that doesnt mean there wasnt some things her coach wanted her to improve on. I wanted to see her helping her team out and working to score as a team not just focusing on her, but placing as a team because cross country is a team sport. She was able to accomplish that. Shes been on varsity for the past few years so she pretty much knows what to do and Im condent that she does do it, she said. And it shows in her races. She has a very strong mind and that really helps her in her races. She knows exactly what she needs to do and shes going to do what she wants to do. Shes good at setting goals for herself.

With only a handful of dates on the Peninsula Athletic League water polo schedule, every single game takes on added signicance. The top three spots in the Bay Division advance to the Central Coast Section playoffs, with the fourth place team forced to play the rst place team in the Ocean Division for the PALs last spot. The Burlingame Panthers took a major step in ensuring their season would be extended, picking up their third straight league win in a convincing 17-9 victory over visiting Carlmont. The win was a byproduct of a rst half in which the Panthers outscored the Scots 13-5. And while Carlmont played noticeably better in the games latter half, the eight-point decit was much too high to overcome. When our boys played well, executed the plays and controlled the ball, they had a very nice offense, said Burlingame coach Randy Kalbus. When Carlmont took away the lanes and forced some bad passes, that was the difference in the second half. When we kept control of (the ball), we played well. It seemed that every time the Panthers touched the ball in the rst half, they were good for a score. Less than 30 seconds into the match, Burlingames leading scorer Eric Baker found the back of net for his rst of six goals on the afternoon. A minute after that Alex Snyder would tally his rst of the game as well. Carlmont got to within one but back-toback goals by Baker would foreshadow the kind of half it would be for the Scots defense. Time and time again, the Panthers found themselves with relatively easy goals on the transition. With 2:26 left in the quarter, Conor Kemp would convert a 5-meter shot before Callahan Nathan would score on a floater for Carlmonts second goal. The boys have worked really hard this season to get faster, Kalbus said of his teams transition game. And its starting to show as

Impressive win sets up showdown with CCSF

By Nathan Mollat

The College of San Mateo football teams rst-team defense allowed its rst touchdown since its season-opening loss to Fresno when Foothill nally scored Saturday. Turns out it didnt mean much as the

Bulldogs drilled their rivals 42-10. That was a big win, said CSM safety Alex Hubbard, who had an interception. Its been ve, six years since we beat them. The 10 points allowed was the most the Bulldogs have allowed since they gave up 14 to Reedley in Week 2. Offensively, CSM continues to roll. Since a

9-7 win over Chabot Oct. 1, which saw the Gladiators score their only touchdown on a punt return, the Bulldogs are averaging 47 points per game. Were connecting (offensively and defensively), Hubbard said. (Against Fresno) it was hit and miss, hit and miss. After that, we made a vow to bring everyone together.

The Bulldogs (2-0 NorCal Conference, 6-1 overall) will need everyone on the same page as they prepare for their biggest test of the season Saturday when City College of San Francisco visits CSM, although the Bulldogs are trying to treat it as just another game.

Sharks 3, Predators 1
Rinnes stick for his second goal of the season. After being held without a goal in his first five games this season, last seasons runner-up for the Calder Trophy has goals in back-to-back contests. Havlat missed San Joses Joe Pavelski rst four games of the season with an upper-body injury, but has posted one assist in each of his rst three games as a Shark. The Sharks held that lead until Smith tied the game at 13:12 of the third with a powerplay goal. In the right faceoff circle, Smith corralled the rebound of Shea Webers shot from the slot and slipped a backhand low to the stick side of screened San Jose goaltender Antti Niemi. San Jose had an 36-20 shot advantage in the game. Nashville has been outshot by their opponent in each of their eight games this season. By Janie McCauley


Sharks beat Predators The Shakestill wont go away


NASHVILLE, Tenn. Joe Pavelski scored twice to lead the San Jose Sharks to a 3-1 victory over the Nashville Predators Tuesday night. Logan Couture also scored for the Sharks. Rookie Craig Smith had the lone Nashville goal. The Sharks started the season with just one victory in their rst four games but have now won two in a row. Nashville has lost ve of their last six. Just 57-seconds after Smith tied the game at one, Pavelski grabbed a loose puck behind the Nashville goal and stuffed it just inside the right post of Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne. Couture scored the games rst goal at 14:22 of the opening period. Pavelski added an empty net goal at 18:48 of the third to account for the nal scoring margin. With the Predators on a power play, Martin Havlat carried the puck down the right side and cut to the middle. His shot from the high slot was turned aside by Rinne, but Couture collected the rebound and ipped it high over

SANTA CLARA Donte Whitner gures he elded 20 questions last week from family and friends about Jim Harbaughs antics. Vernon Davis went home to Washington, D.C., and got grilled by his buddies for any and all details on San Franciscos red-up head coach. Same for Ricky Jean Francois during a visit to South Florida. The Handshake is still a big hit a week later. Across the nation, no less. Its still a hot topic, especially when they show it so many times on ESPN and all these places, Whitner said Tuesday. Davis assured his crew that Harbaugh isnt crazy, just downright spirited. Whitner, who traveled to his native Cleveland and Miami last week, eventually came up with a standard response. You think you know everything but I actually didnt see it until I watched TV, Whitner said. After hearing about it and talking to different people about it you gure out what went on. I dont really see it as a big deal, but everybody else sees it as a big deal, so my entire family and everybody wants to know. I probably had to answer that question 20 times. So then Id just get to the point where Id tell them it was a misunderstanding. Harbaughs NFC West-leading 49ers (5-1) returned to practice and work Tuesday in preparation for Sundays home game against the Cleveland Browns. Many were still talking about Harbaughs infamous rm handshake and backslap with Jim Schwartz that infuriated the Lions coach. The men had to be separated as they left the eld following the 49ers 25-19 comeback victory Oct. 16 at Ford Field. Nobody denies that the hype around this franchise largely stems from the man in charge, the former NFL quarterback who is nding immediate success in his rst season as a professional head coach. The rst thing they said to me, Your coach is crazy, Davis recalled of conversations with his

pals last week. I was like: Harbaugh, no hes not crazy, hes a great guy. He just has a lot of energy. They also talked about our record, how were 5-1, Youre all rollin, youre rollin. Im like, Yeah, but Im not worried about that, Im not thinking about that. I cant think about 5-1. We still have 10 more games to nish. Once we nish that, then Ill get excited. Davis hopes that means a trip to the playoffs at last for a team that has failed to do so or post a winning record since 2002. These players believe it can happen with the emotional Harbaugh leading the way. Hes going to be the talk of the country for a good while, Francois said. I wouldnt be surprised if hes at the ESPYs for that handshake. Wide receiver Braylon Edwards returned to practice for the rst time since sustaining a right knee injury early in a Week 2 overtime loss to Dallas and then undergoing surgery. Wearing a protective sleeve on the troublesome knee, Edwards ran well and worked on cuts to either side during warmups. He has targeted this Sundays game for his return against his former team. Edwards spent his rst ve NFL seasons in Cleveland before playing the past two years with the New York Jets. Braylon adds big-play ability. Hes a long receiver, tall, big, physical and he wants to have some success, Davis said. So, hes very motivated. We dont have to worry about that. Hell help us out tremendously in the receiving game. We look forward to having him back. Whitner, too, has plenty of motivation to play well this weekend. He was born and raised in Cleveland and his entire family still cheers for the Browns except, maybe, this Sunday. His uncle, Greg, insists he wont alter his allegiances just because Whitner is on the other side. Theres some debating. Theres a few people but the majority want me to win, Whitner said. I have an uncle named Greg. Hes pretty much the only one. He said he wants me to play well but he wants Cleveland to beat us. He called me on the phone and sent me a couple text messages.

Palmer: Raiders debut learning experience

By Josh Dubow

ALAMEDA As bad as Carson Palmers three-interception debut with the Oakland Raiders looked, he views it as a valuable teaching tool. Palmer took the eld Tuesday for his rst practice since that debacle to start what promises to be a learningintensive bye week. Palmer had just three practices with the Raiders before making his debut in Sundays 28-0 loss to Kansas City. So the task this week will be to learn the offense, build a rapport on and off the eld with his receivers and get back into football shape after more than

nine months away from the game. This bye week may be the most valuable to me of anybody in the league, other than a guy who is really hurt or nursing a serious injury, Palmer said. Thats because Palmer arrived in Oakland just a week ago after spending training camp and the rst six weeks of the season in retirement at home in Southern California. That ended when Jason Campbell broke his collarbone and the Raiders traded a 2012 rst-round pick and a conditional second-rounder in 2013 to Cincinnati for Palmer. Palmer got about 20 percent of the rst-team snaps during the week

before being sent in to replace Kyle Boller in the third quarter against the Chiefs with the Raiders trailing 21-0. Palmer completed his rst pass in more than nine months but there wasnt much positive. He nished 8 of 21 for 116 yards and threw three interceptions, including one that Brandon Flowers returned for a touchdown. Palmer nished with his third-worst completion percentage, tied for his second-most interceptions and his 17.3 passer rating was the second lowest of his career. It was kind of like a preseason game just to get my feet wet, call a play in the huddle, throw a ball in live

action and make errors and make mistakes, he said. Its much easier to learn from a mistake or an error than it is to learn from doing it right. ... Its always a negative thing to lose and lose the way we did. But I think theres a lot more good than people outside this building would recognize that well learn from and improve on and move on from. The to-do list for Palmer is extensive, starting with learning protections and terminology, calling plays in the huddle, working on snap counts, reading defenses, changing plays and getting a feel for the skill position players. When all of that is done, Palmer can

start preparing for the next game against Denver on Nov. 6, which the Raiders hope will be a much more successful day than his debut was. I put him in a very tough situation, but it was a situation he was willing to go in and compete in, coach Hue Jackson said. I understood what the situation was. I knew that those things could happen. I knew it could go really well. I knew it could go really bad, and obviously it went the latter. We dont want that to happen again. Thats why were out here practicing like were practicing. Were going to get ourselves ready to play big-time football the way we know how to play.

Pacquiao makes it personal in 3rd Marquez fight

By Greg Beacham

LOS ANGELES Manny Pacquiao never takes his ghts personally. The pound-for-pound kings opponents are usually quite respectful of his throne, and the easygoing Pacquiao shrugs off any stray insults with a smile. Not this time. Not in his third ght with Juan Manuel Marquez, the closest thing to an archrival for this unrivaled eight-division champion. Pacquiaos trainers are sensing an unsettling edge in the Filipino congressman, who started an all-out training regimen with pre-dawn runs and lengthy gym workouts before the ght was even announced. The steady stream of bloody, beaten sparring partners leaving the Wild Card Gym testies to a focus that nobody in

Pacquiaos camp has ever seen. Im not upset, but I get excited because hes claiming that he won the ghts, Pacquiao said while wrapping his hands in the broom closet that serves as his dressing room at Manny trainer Freddie Pacquiao Roachs gym in Hollywood. Thats why I train hard, because I want to end this, all the doubts. This is our last ght. Pacquiao admits hes insulted by Marquezs boastful insistence that he won their rst two ghts, which ended in a draw in 2004 and a split decision for Pacquiao in 2008. Marquez even traveled to the Philippines to plead his

case to the public, wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with: We Were Robbed. In truth, both bouts were dazzling displays of style and heart, with Pacquiaos aggression and toughness matching Marquezs counterpunching and combinations for 24 fascinating rounds. Pacquiao knocked down Marquez three times in the rst round of the rst ght, and he oored Marquez once in the rematch, but Marquez rallied both times to even the bouts, doing more damage to Pacquiao than any opponent in the past decade. It seems personal to him because he talks too much, and he needs to prove it, said Pacquiao, who will meet Marquez at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas on Nov. 12. He talks a lot, and its not good for a ghter to talk a lot without action. Me, I dont talk a

lot. I just do some action. Pacquiao is sparring more aggressively and running more miles than he usually does at this point in his preparation for a ght, Roach said. Hes also training smarter, with strength trainer Alex Ariza nally selling him on the benets of an occasional day off to rejuvenate the calf muscles that cramped against Marquez. I dont think Ive seen him more focused, and I think its because its personal, for sure, Ariza said shortly before Pacquiao knocked another palooka through the Wild Card ropes twice in the same sparring round. When something is personal, its a lot different. He knows that he has to make a statement in this one. With everyone having questions about the rst two, he has to make sure in this one that theres no doubt. ... Were going through sparring partners like you change underwear. Im surprised

that these guys are still coming back. Even with his stellar career in full bloom over the past two years, Pacquiao has been generous to a fault with his recent opponents. He noticeably let up on Joshua Clottey and Antonio Margarito when they couldnt match him last year, and he irked many fans by constantly touching gloves with over-the-hill Sugar Shane Mosley last May, even hugging Mosley before the 12th round. I dont see Manny even touching gloves (with Marquez), Ariza said. He has a disdain for the guy, and Ive never known him to dislike anyone. ... Manny is still a nice guy and everything, but theres something very Third World about him when he wants to be. He can be merciless. Ive seen it, and its been a long time since Ive seen that. Usually he lets guys off the hook. He isnt letting anybody off the hook.

Sports briefs
As release RHP Wuertz, claim 2 from Padres
OAKLAND The Oakland Athletics have released right-handed reliever Michael Wuertz and claimed right-hander Evan Scribner and outelder Cedric Hunter off waivers from the San Diego Padres. The 32-year-old Wuertz went 0-0 with a 6.68 ERA in 39 relief appearances for the As last


season, which he started on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring. Wuertz had a $3.5 million team option and is due a $250,000 buyout. Scribner, who began the season at Triple-A Tucson, posted a 7.07 ERA in 10 appearances over two stints with San Diego in his injuryshortened rookie season. Hunter made San Diegos opening day roster before being optioned to Tucson on April 9. He batted .255 with two home runs and 33 RBIs in 81 games before going on the DL on July 17 for the rest of the year with a strained right groin. tle slow, we were watching the ball get stolen while they were already three, four strokes down the pool. They came out and were more ready than us. I think once we identied their main players, we were kind of able to stay with them ... and make those kind of adjustments, keep a body on them (and) not give us those easy goals. Unfortunately for the Scots, Baker and Synder werent Burlingames only weapons Wednesday. Nicholas Bauer got in on the action and Jake Vikoren scored as well. When the water settled at the end of the half, Burlingame had a 13-5 lead. But as Wolfe mentioned, the Scots were able to make some adjustments in half number two, enough to stay even with the Panthers the rest of the way. Lavanchy Julien scored for the Scots and Fecher Adam found the twine with under a minute in the third quarter. Julien led all Carlmont scorers with three goals. Nathan had two goals and three assists.

14th hole when she made birdie and Kelly Fang lost a ball in the water en route to a 7. Kelly Fang quickly recovered on the next hole, knocking her drive to within two feet of the cup. Xin Fangs drive came up short of the green. Her second shot got her within eight feet and her par attempt lipped out and she had to settle for a bogey. Just like that, Kelly Fang had a two-shot lead. She stumbled again on the 16th as she chunked her drive and her second shot ew the green. She scrambled for a double bogey, but maintained her lead when Xin Fang managed only a bogey on the hole. Xin Fang had a chance to pick up that stroke on the par-3 17th, but her birdie attempt slid agonizingly by the hole and she tapped in for par. Kelly Fang had some work to save par, but nailed a knee-knocking eight footer to keep her a stroke ahead going to the 18th. Both Fangs nished with a par on the nal hole. [Kelly Fangs] such a doggone competitor, said Aragon coach Guy Oling. [Her 35 on the front] was her best nine of the season and its her rst season. She enjoys the game. Its a pleasure to have her part of our golf team.

the season is coming to an end. Its been a problem for us the entire season, said Carlmont coach Zachary Wolfe. We had a problem staying with them in the rst quarter. Often times, its like we try too hard, we kind of try to force the ball in there a little too much. I think it takes us a while to get into it, so I think thats kind of typical of our team this year. The Panthers stayed hot to begin the second quarter, with Synder scoring the rst two goals and Baker tallying another to make give the Panthers a 9-2 advantage. The Burlingame guys were denitively quick to react, Wolfe said. Denitely quicker than us at that point. So, credit to them and their ability to get down there.

What put the Bearcats over the top was the addition of Sasaki, a freshman. She was a super addition, Ikeda said.

the Bulldogs have two regular season games left before the Coast Conference tournament and two wins will help their outside chances of earning a wild-card berth into the Northern California tournament. While Saturdays match at Santa Rosa is a non-conference game, coach Randy Wright will be putting all his focus on Ohlone in the Coast Conference regular-season finale Friday afternoon in Fremont. Its very clear what has to be done. Beat Ohlone and do what you can in the conference tournament, Wright said. Its going to take a wild nish. We have to beat Ohlone to be tied for third. The difference between third and fourth place means the difference between having the play top-seeded Merced in the seminals (fourth-place finish) or the championship match (third-place nish). Even if we dont nish in the top-6 (in Northern California, which would earn a spot in the Nor Cal tournament), seventh isnt bad, Wright said. We were knocking on the door.

Were carrying the same thought: its Week 8, Hubbard said. It just happens to be City. The Rams are ranked No. 1 in Northern California, No. 1 in the state and No. 1 in the nation, according to I didnt even know, Hubbard said. The Rams-Bulldogs rivalry goes back to 1932 and it hasnt been that close. CCSF has beaten CSM 19 of the last 20 times the teams have met, with the lone Bulldogs win coming in 2009, 30-24. Were going to see if theyre really the No. 1 team, said Tim Tulloch, CSM defensive coordinator and assistant head coach. For us, well nd out where we are at the end of the (game). Whatever team wins this game will have the inside track to the conference title. CCSF (2-0, 7-0) lead the state in scoring, averaging 57 points per game and are coming off a 56-10 win over Laney last weekend. Offensively, they have some very talented skill guys, Tulloch said. They know how to put points on the board. The Rams are led by quarterback Turner Baty, who led Menlo-Atherton to the Central Coast Section Large School title in 2008. Baty is averaging 226 yards passing per game and has tossed 19 touchdowns. The Rams are equally adept at running the ball as they are passing. They average 250 yards per game on the ground. Defensively, the Rams are allowing less than 10 points per game, having given up a total of 57 points this year. Well see how good they are Saturday, Tulloch said. We just focus on playing our game. If people are red up and think theyre the top team good for them.

Having those goals paid off. And her willingness to be a team player garnered the Scots a third place nish in Division I. Well, weve worked hard all year and when youve been doing the workouts that theyve been doing, it pays off, Randazzo said. So, I dont look at success as how you place, I look at it as how everyone is doing and everyone is steadily improving. Thats how I view success. And, based on how their workouts were (going), I knew they were going to do well including Sarah in her race. Shes getting there, Randazzo said of Schrecks status as a team leader. Shes start-

ing to take the role by being, competitionwise, the leader of the group. So, she taken that role on recently to go out strong and build condence in the races with the girls by showing them that shes a strong competitor. The end of the cross country season is right around the corner. And there is still plenty to accomplish for Schreck as she winds down her career as a Scot. We have PAL nals next week and Im expecting her to finish in the Top 3, Randazzo said. And we have CCS in a couple of weeks after that and I want her to just keep improving on her time at Crystal Springs. This will be our fourth time racing at Crystal Springs this year so I just want to see her time steadily go down so that shell be ready for the state meet.

The CSM cross country team will be participating in the Coast Conference nals today at Golden Gate Park and will host the Nor Cal nals at Crystal Springs Nov. 5. In other cross country news, CSMs Kelly Claire was named to the 2010 California Community College All-Academic womens cross country team.

Although the start of the 2012 baseball season is still four months away, pre-season polls were released Tuesday. CSM earned a preseason rank of No. 5 in the state and No. 2 in Northern California. Caada was ranked No. 18 in Nor Cal, while Skyline came in at No. 20.

Chilly nights call for a bowl of soup

eeding a warming bowl of chicken soup and having the time you need to make it too often dont coincide. Which is why I came up with this quick and easy way to get a steaming bowl of chicken noodle soup on the table in under 30 minutes. The trick is to use mostly prepped ingredients, such as rotisserie chicken, frozen peas, carrots and corn, and prepared broth. You can even buy the onion already diced if that helps. With little effort youll be curled up on the couch slurping your soup in no time. This soup also can be partly prepped ahead in batches to make your weeknight soup needs even easier to handle. Simply buy several rotisserie chickens and double or triple the veggies needed. Fill zipclose freezer bags with some of each ingredient, add your seasonings, then freeze. When you need a soup x, just toss the frozen prepped soup in a saucepan with broth, bring to a simmer and add the pasta. For an especially nice touch, serve this soup with crusty sour-

dough bread topped with fresh mozzarella and popped under the broiler for a minute. Its great for dunking.

Organic foods not always safe

By Mary Clare Jalonick


Start to nish: 30 minutes Servings: 6 2-pound rotisserie chicken 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika 1 teaspoon dried thyme 1 medium yellow onion, diced 1 pound frozen blend of peas, carrots and corn kernels 2 quarts chicken broth 1 cup elbow pasta Salt and ground black pepper 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley Remove the meat from the chicken, then use your ngers to pull any large pieces into bite-size chunks. Set aside. In a large saucepan over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the garlic powder, cumin, paprika and thyme. Heat the seasonings for 30 seconds, then add the onion. Saute for 5 minutes, then add the frozen vegetables. Saute for another 5 minutes. Add the broth and bring to a simmer. Add the pasta and cook for 7 to 8 minutes, then add the chicken meat and return to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper, then stir in the parsley.


By using mostly prepped ingredients, such as rotisserie chicken, frozen peas,carrots and corn,and prepared broth,you can cut prep time down.

WASHINGTON Shoppers nervous about foodborne illnesses may turn to foods produced at smaller farms or labeled local, organic or natural in the hopes that such products are safer. But a small outbreak of salmonella in organic eggs from Minnesota shows that no food is immune to contamination. While sales for food produced on smaller operations have exploded, partially fueled by a consumer backlash to food produced by larger companies, a new set of food safety challenges has emerged. And small farm operations have been exempted from food safety laws as conservatives, farmers and food-lovers have worried about too much government intervention and regulators have struggled with tight budgets. The government has traditionally focused on safety at large food operations including farms, processing plants, and retailers because they reach the most people. Recent outbreaks in cantaloupe, ground turkey, eggs and peanuts have started at large farms or plants and sickened thousands of people across the country. While its critical that food processors be regularly inspected, there is no way the Food and Drug Administration would ever have the

cow. He would come home with a check and be done. The problem with this, he said, is you dont know the future of the calves. Instead of keeping them for eight months, they now keep calves for two years, raising them and bringing them to Petaluma for butchering. to an endangered species of red-legged frogs thriving in their stock pond.


On distribution day, theyre like kids in a candy store, sorting out let mignons at the price of ground beef, said Erik. Aside from the herd shares, there is also the buying club which allows people to pick up customized orders regularly.

Continued from page 1
drove into TOTO ranch, bringing his 9-year old daughter Lea, the oldest of his four children, home from school. When he pulled up to the ranch house in his truck that runs on vegetable oil, he was met by two excited Australian shepherds and his smiling 4-yearold son Larry. Over fresh raw milk from their Jersey cows, Erik and his wife Doniga made it clear they were not in the ranching business to make a quick buck. Rather, they explained that their goal is to create an example for others of practices that are healthy for humans and the environment. Part of the inspiration is from having kids of your own, said Doniga, adding that you never know where your cheap milk at the grocery store is really coming from. To afford healthy food, weve got to do it ourselves, she said. And the kids are happy to be their helpers. When Larry starts to look grumpy, Erik cheers him up by telling him they can go out and sort calves later. Our kids dont see it as work. They do what we do, said Erik. There is no 9 to 5. This is life. Sporting a black cowboy hat and walking with a limp from rodeo injuries, Erik is a sixth generation rancher. He grew up just over the hill from TOTO ranch on Broken Arrow Ranch, where his father had leased land for raising cattle. He only recently switched to grass-fed cattle when he moved to TOTO ranch with his family in 2006. Erik used to have a cow-calf operation. He would raise calves and sell them at a public auction as soon as they were weaned from the

Caring for animals

Erik described the moment when he realized the necessity for good treatment of animals. At an auction, he watched a man bring in his calves in what he called a disgusting rusty trailer. It seemed evil to him. He realized that there is a right way and a wrong to treat animals and the behavior of his animals reect that difference. When I honk the horn on my truck, every animal we own comes running to us, said Erik. Along with cattle, they raise sheep, horses, pigs, chickens and dairy cows. They dont hide their kids from the reality of life and death, said Doniga. Lea loves to take care of the pigs. I let her bond with certain ones, said Erik. And others, I tell her that ones bacon and that ones pork chops.

Land stewardship
The move to grass-fed was inspired by Donigas background in nature awareness. She became passionate about sustainable practices when she learned about land stewardship. She realized that Eriks cattle ranching was a perfect opportunity to use her knowledge of holistic management to improve the quality of the land. She and Erik were the rst people in the area to raise grassfed beef, she said. They have an average of around 300 cows, calves and yearlings on about 3,000 acres. Surprisingly, the Markegards do not own any of the land. They lease ve ranches in San Mateo and Sonoma counties. The biggest challenge for them is nding affordable land, said Erik. They lease TOTO ranch from the Peninsula Open Space Trust. There is plenty of dormant grassland in the area, added Doniga, but wealthy individuals and state parks are not willing to lease to agriculture. Making the switch to grass-fed was not easy. Theres a saying that we arent cattle ranchers, were grass farmers, laughed Erik. He rotates the cattle about every two weeks to enhance the soil and grasslands. After the cattle move on to the next section of grassland, chickens are brought in a portable coup, made from a converted horse trailer, to feed on what is left behind. Caring for that land has brought back much of the natural biodiversity, said Doniga. She noticed species from bobcats and quail last week after six cases of salmonella poisoning were linked to the farms eggs. A new food safety law President Barack Obama signed earlier this year exempts some small farms as a result of farmers and local food advocates complaining that creating costly food safety plans could cause some small businesses to go bankrupt. The exemption covers farms of a certain size that sell within a limited distance of their operation. Food safety advocates unsuccessfully lobbied against the provision, as did the organic industry. Christine Bushway of the Organic Trade Association, which represents large and small producers, says food safety comes down to proper operation of a farm or food company, not its scale. How is the farm managed? How much effort is put into food safety? she asks. If you dont have really good management, it doesnt matter.

Doniga said she is proud yet worried about her family farm. Its scary times for small farmers, even though local food is trendy, she said. Farmers need to be activists. She recently spoke on a panel in San Francisco on issues that small farmers are having with food regulators. Her grandmother grew up on a milk farm in Montana. Doniga is revisiting these practices by inviting families to have a share in her milk cows. She also trades her milk for produce from other farmers. As a result, she is visited by regulators who are concerned about her lack of dairy certication. She said she cannot afford the thousands of dollars it would cost to get certied for her small-scale operation. She said this kind of regulation enforcement has lead to the shutdown of many local family farms. Im not anti-regulation, she said. We just need a different level of regulation. Erik agreed. I understand Safeway products having these regulations, but we are the opposite of them, said Erik. We encourage people to be involved in the process. She has talked with the California Department of Agriculture about exempting small farm operations from their one-sizets-all dairy and meat regulations and is now working on passing a resolution in San Mateo County. A similar resolution has already passed in Santa Cruz County. For more information visit grounds where they are roaming. So what can a consumer do? Experts say to follow the traditional rules, no matter what the variety of food. Cook foods like eggs and meat, and make sure you are scrubbing fruit and cleaning your kitchen well. Do your part, and hope for the best, the experts say. Labels like organic or local dont translate into necessarily safer products, says Caroline Smith DeWaal of the Center for Science in the Public Interest. They are capturing different values but not ensuring safety. Bushway of the Organic Trade Association says one of the best checks on food safety is the devastating effect a recall or foodborne illness outbreak can have on a companys bottom line. Its just good business to make sure you are putting the safest products on the market, she says.

Feeding the local community

For beef, the Markegards sell herd shares of Angus and Belted Galloway. What inspired them to sell herd-shares of their beef was their involvement in a community-supported agriculture program. They bought a share in a farm and in return received regular produce packages. Doniga realized they could be selling their beef to the local community this way. In purchasing a whole, half or split-half of an animal from Markegard farm, customers receive many different cuts of beef. They want to offer their meat and eggs to local families at affordable prices. A half animal share is approximately 160 pounds of beef priced at $6.05 per pound. The meat is good for a whole year. They encourage families to go in on herd shares together or to buy a deep freezer, which many of their returning customers have done. Smaller farms do have some obvious food safety advantages. Owners have more control over what they are producing and often do not ship as far, lessening the chances for contamination in transport. If the farm is organic, an inspector will have to visit the property to certify it is organic and may report to authorities if they see food being produced in an unsafe way. Customers may also be familiar with an operation if it is nearby. But those checks arent fail-safe. The FDA has reported at least 20 recalls due to pathogens in organic food in the last two years, while the Agriculture Department, which oversees meat safety, issued a recall of more than 34,000 pounds of organic beef last December due to possible contamination with E. coli. Egg safety is equally ambiguous. While many people like to buy cage-free eggs, those chickens may be exposed to bacteria on the

resources to check every farm in the country, nor are we calling for that, says Erik Olson, a food safety advocate at the Pew Health Group. Unfortunately, there are regulatory gaps, with some producers being completely exempt from FDA safeguards. The FDA, which oversees the safety of most of the U.S. food supply, often must focus on companies that have the greatest reach. A sweeping new egg rule enacted last year would require most egg producers to do more testing for pathogens. Though the rule will eventually cover more than 99 percent of the countrys egg supply, small farms like Larry Schultz Organic Farm of Owatonna, Minn., would not qualify. That farm issued a recall

Fall stir-fry with potatoes McRib makes McComeback

By Christina Rexrode

Traditional stir-fries typically are served over rice or noodles. But we decided to think outside the wok. Instead we went for another favorite autumnal starch mashed potatoes. The result is a quick and easy stir-fry thats a bit like shepherds pie (though jammed with way more vegetables). We also stuck with autumn as our inspiration and used produce and seasonings appropriate to the season. But mashed potatoes go so well with so many things, theres no reason not to mix it up a bit and add whatever produce you crave or happen to have.


For a simple mashed potato, in a large saucepan combine 1 1/2 pounds new potatoes with enough cool water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook until tender. Drain, return the potatoes to the saucepan, then mash with milk, butter, salt and pepper according to taste. Start to nish: 25 minutes Servings: 6 8 ounces bacon 12 ounces pork tenderloin, cut into thin strips 1 medium red onion, sliced 1 teaspoon dried sage 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1 pound carrots, peeled and cut in 1/2inch chunks 1 pound Brussels sprouts, quartered 1/2 cup chicken broth 1/2 cup dried cranberries Salt and ground black pepper, to taste Mashed potatoes, to serve In a large, deep skillet over mediumhigh, cook the bacon until crisp, about 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer

NEW YORK The McRib, the elusive sandwich that has inspired a cult-like following, is back. McDonalds Corp. announced Monday that the boneless barbecue pork sandwich, usually available in only a few stores at a time, will be sold at all U.S. locations through Nov. 14. Most of the time, its up to local franchises to determine when and if they want to sell the McRib except in Germany, the only place where its available perennially. But McDonalds said the response was so great last November when it made the McRib available nationally for about three weeks that it decided to bring it back this year. The company, which previously hadnt sold the McRib nationally since 1994, declined to give specic sales numbers. The sandwich, which is dressed with onions, pickle slices and barbecue sauce, was introduced nationally in 1982. With 500 calories and 26 grams of fat, its slightly trimmer than the Big Mac, which has 540 calories and 29 grams of fat. And just like the Big Mac, the McRib has become a popular McDonalds offering. There are Facebook groups like Bring Back the McRib!!! There are Twitter tags, where posts range from Lucky me, the McRib is back to If you eat McRibs, you need to re-evaluate what it is you actually want in life. Last year, the guy who won McDonalds $1 million Monopoly grand prize was ordering you guessed it a McRib. Earlier this month, former Playmate Jenny McCarthy contacted the McRib Locator website for help nding a McRib in southern California: She got one in Fountain Valley.

the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain, leaving the fat in the skillet. Over medium-high, add the pork strips and sear to brown, about 2 minutes. It does not need to cook through. Transfer the pork to a plate and set aside. Lower the heat to medium and add the onion, sage and cinnamon. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the onions begin to brown at the edges. Add the carrots and Brussels sprouts and saute for 5 to 6 minutes, or until starting to brown. Add the broth, then cover and cook for 10 minutes. Return the pork to the pan, add the cranberries, then cook, uncovered, for another 5 to 6 minutes, or until the pork is cooked. Season with salt and black pepper. Serve over mashed potatoes, crumbling the bacon on top.

2030, according to the 2008 business plan. But the states Legislative Analysts Ofce has pointed out many inadequacies and aws in the business plan and its subsequent updates since 2008. The LAO found the business plan to be at risk of not realizing the forecasted ridership, revenues or costs and that federal funding expectations are highly uncertain. A report by the University of California Berkeley Institute of Transportation Studies also slammed the business plan as being unreliable and impossible to predict whether the project will be successful or lead to severe revenue shortfalls. If the new business plan is unsatisfactory, it could effect the Legislatures willingness to support the project, Gordon said. The Legislature is going to have to make some funding decisions next year, he said. If the plan flawed, the Legislature will not be willing to open the purse strings. Gordon chairs the Budget Subcommittee on Resources and Transportation in the Assembly and plans to hold a special hearing on high-speed rail funding sometime in November after the updated business plan is released. The Nov. 1 publication of the business plan will commence a 60-day public comment period, which includes public meetings to be scheduled in November and December. The authority currently has access to about $6.3 billion, enough to construct the rst phase of the project in the Central Valley, with construction expected to get under way next year. The state Legislature must approve the plan by Jan. 1, 2012. The plan will include new projections on construction costs, ridership and passenger fares. In another report expected next month, the authority also is supposed to identify the sources of money to build the system. The California High-Speed Rail Authority board meets 10 a.m., Thursday, Nov. 3, City Hall, Sacramento, 915 I St., Sacramento.

cost of roughly $4.2 billion. Simitian and Assemblyman Rich Gordon, D-Menlo Park, however, have called for a blended rail approach on the Peninsula that will minimize cost and reduce property takings through eminent domain. Simitian is not sure if the updated business plan will address the blended rail request, which also called for the rail authority to scrap plans for an environmental impact report for the full buildout of the system on the Peninsula, which originally called for constructing a fourtrack aerial viaduct, soaring 60 feet above ground. The blended system calls for highspeed trains to mostly share Caltrains current two-track system, with the addition of about nine miles in passing tracks to be constructed, likely south of San Mateo. The rail authority requested the state Attorney Generals Ofce to determine whether the blended rail request is legal, based on Proposition 1A, the voterapproved bond measure that got the project off the ground. The Attorney Generals Ofce has yet to respond to that request, however, Simitian said. U.S. Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Palo Alto, joined Simitian and Gordon in their request for a blended system, saying it will get high-speed trains into San Francisco quicker and at less cost than the full buildout of the system. It is a level-headed approach that will bring down costs dramatically for the Peninsula section of the project, Gordon told the Daily Journal yesterday. The 2008 business plan estimated the capital costs of constructing the 800-mile system from Los Angeles to San Francisco to be roughly $33.6 billion but that number has since swelled to past $43 billion and new estimates calculate the overall cost to be more than $66 billion and climbing. Hill is hoping to see a credible cost estimate in next weeks update to the business plan, which was supposed to be released earlier this month but pushed back to Nov. 1, two days before the rail

authoritys next board meeting in Sacramento. Whatever the cost, Gordon said, the plan needs to show the public how the project will be paid for. If the project cost is $100 billion then they need to identify how to pay for it, Gordon said. The business plan was required to be put in place by the state before voters decided whether to approve a bond measure to fund the project. With the passage of Proposition 1A in November 2008, Californians pledged more than $9 billion in bond proceeds toward the project based on information in the initial business plan. The 2008 business plan targeted up to $16 billion in support from federal sources, up to $3 billion in local nancial support and up to $7.5 billion in private sector money. With private investment, there will be a trade-off, Gordon said. There has been lots of talk about private investment, Gordon said. But how realistic is it to secure private funding? No private individual is going to give us free money. The plan estimated, with ticket fares priced at 50 percent of airfares, highspeed trains would carry about 55 million trips in 2030 and generate $2.4 billion in ticket revenue, $735 million of that coming directly from direct trips from Los Angeles to San Francisco. The plan estimates that 4.8 million passengers alone will use the system annually between San Francisco and San Jose that will generate about $54 million annually for the rail authority. Operation and maintenance costs are estimated to be $1.3 billion annually by grade student, not allowing the older child to attend the local middle school would split families into different districts, Baker said. At a previous meeting, during which one trustee was absent, trustees indicated a willingness to let the children remain enrolled within the district in the upcoming school year. Thursdays discussion will allow that decision to be discussed hopefully with a full board. At the same meeting, the board will discuss the process for lling a possible vacancy. Currently three people are running for two seats on the board. Board President Tom Quiggle is not running for re-election, but Trustee Seth Rosenblatt, technology executive Adam Rak and civil engineer Peter Tzifas are running. At the same time, sitting trustees Carrie Du Bois and Mark Olbert are both running for different positions. Du Bois is running for the Sequoia Union High School District while Olbert is pursuing a seat on the San Carlos City Council. After the Nov. 8 election, the district Najdawi is also charged with felony fraud for allegedly stealing his brothers credit card for use the night of the murder and while evading police afterward. While awaiting trial at the Maguire Correctional Facility, he allegedly attacked his cellmate, leading to an attempted murder charge. Before he could stand trial previously, Najdawi was found incompetent and institutionalized at Napa Sate Hospital. He was deemed t earlier this year and returned to San Mateo County. Najdawi was appointed an attorney but recently decided to defend himself and enter a second plea of not guilty by

Craig Baker is recommending the kids stay put for the coming year a conversation the board will take up Thursday. About 200 of the districts more than 1,200 students are from other areas, according to a staff report. Of those children, only 30 are possibly advancing to middle school next year. The board realizes those 30 students are not going to impact the greater enrollment issues, Baker said. Not allowing the children would create other issues for families. Baker noted many out-of-district families previously lived within the district limits and simply wanted to keep their children at the same school. Also, once accepted, the district allows children to stay enrolled at the same school. So if a family currently has a kindergartner and a fourth-

will not only have a new trustee but it could need to ll up to two vacancies. New San Carlos trustees will ofcially take ofce Dec. 8. Those elected to other seats which could be Du Bois or Olbert will have to resign from the district board. At that time, the board will decide if it wants to hold a special election or appoint people to ll the positions. Appointing a person to the board is a cheaper option for the district but is one that is sometimes criticized by those who see the process as not democratic. Alternatively, if the board doesnt make a decision between appointing or holding an election within 60 days, San Mateo County Superintendent Anne Campbell can call an election to ll the vacancy. The board meets 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27 at the Central Middle School library, 828 Chestnut St., San Carlos.

ed to an early-morning shooting reported July 8, 2008 in Millbrae. Chu reportedly had been in the drivers seat when shot nearly a dozen times in the head. Authorities assume the shooter pushed Chus body aside and drove the car away. Authorities say the men had been drinking together that night but further motive remains unclear. A week later, police apprehended Najdawi at a Redding motel.

reason of insanity. A pair of doctors will return evaluations used for that portion of trial, if necessary, on Nov. 8. Najdawi is allowed to be his own attorney because he is now considered competent. He can also enter a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity because that refers to his mental state at the time of the alleged crime and not his current ability to understand courtroom proceedings. He remains in custody without bail.

Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2011 scORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You dont want to be wasteful or foolish with any of your possessions or resources. You may have to say no to someone who is a friend but is known to have trouble handling funds. saGIttaRIUs (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Should you start to lose your position in a partnership arrangement, its time to bow out. Once it becomes one-sided, it will be valueless. caPRIcORn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Theres a chance that an endeavor that has been rather fortunate for you is now starting to lose some of its luster. When its promise begins to outweigh what it can deliver,

its time to call it quits. aQUaRIUs (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you start searching for faults in others, others will suddenly examine you closely, as well. When dealing with friends or family, more tolerance and understanding is required. PIsces (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Taking charge of a situation that is beginning to flounder is clearly the best thing to do, but carrying things to extremes is asking for more trouble. Recognize the difference. aRIes (March 21-April 19) -- If you think you can pick apart another persons opinion and not be challenged, youre in for a big surprise. Youd be smart to simply accept what others have to say. taURUs (April 20-May 20) -- Dont leave something

in the hands of another that, if handled poorly, could cost you a bundle of money. Indifference to this matter will have you paying the proverbial piper. GeMInI (May 21-June 20) -- More strain than usual could arise in a valued relationship over an issue that each party believes affects him or her personally. Both of you will be more protective than cooperative. canceR (June 21-July 22) -- Unless you have a good attitude about your work, it isnt likely youll do a good job. The end result of an assignment you resent doing will reflect your malice. LeO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Instead of trying to be the center of attention or making sure the spotlights centered on you, relax and let your friends showboat

a bit. They will like you more if you give them a chance to strut their stuff. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If everything turns out great, you could be the first one to step up and take a bow. Conversely, if things go wrong, youre likely to be the first one pointing a finger.
