programming and release from custody he sought instead. Vanher Cho, 18, was close to his desired outcome until the judge who heads the mental

health court refused him admission into Pathways. Instead, Cho bounced back to Judge Cliff Cretan who could have imposed up to two years in prison. Instead, Cretan opted for the lower term. In April, Cho pleaded no contest to aiding and abetting in return for the two-year maximum. For the last two months, Cho has tried to avoid

incarceration by enrolling in Pathways instead. In his refusal of Pathways, Judge Mark Forcum said Cho belongs in prison for his role in helping murder defendant Josue Orozco escape from the Youth Services Center on Paul Scannell Drive. Cho and Martin Villa Patino, 18, were at the juvenile hall instead of

the adult Maguire Correctional Center because they were nishing juvenile sentences at the Paul Scannell Drive facility. Before 7 p.m. Feb. 14, authorities say the men pushed Orozco, 17, over a wall surrounding the outside recreation yard where the trio were playing

Home from gnomemans land

By Dana Yates

Just as quickly as they vanished, a handful of silver slathered garden gnomes reappeared in the garden of San Mateo resident Tony Rafello on Fathers Day morning. On May 8, at least nine handpainted garden gnomes disappeared from the lush ivy and blooming raspberry bushes outside Rafellos Kingsridge Drive home. The gnomes left behind a small shing pole, a tiny mushroom hut and miniature camping trailer. The apparent gnomenapping left Rafello, neighbors, children and family pleading for their return. Signs went up. Neighbors gave condolence gifts. Some people even tried to offer replacement gnomes. One gnome named Ike arrived in the

mail all the way from Cracker Barrel restaurant in North Carolina. I heard you had an opening for garden gnomes ... I got here as fast as UPS would ship me. I look forward to a long, mutually satisfying career the note from Ike read. There is no indication what human helped Ike package himself up for California. Just when Rafello was beginning to move through the stages of grief, something silver surprised him. On June 15 Fathers Day Rafello noticed ve of the stolen gnomes glistened in the morning sun. They were coated in silver paint. The silver lacquer was not painstakingly placed. It was not spray painted. It was haphazardly coated over the gnomes that Rafello

LOS ANGELES The median price of a home in California plunged 30 percent to $339,000 in May, opening doors for some rsttime buyers to afford homes in the states most depressed areas, a real estate research rm said Wednesday. The annual decline was driven by home depreciation, fewer sales of high-end homes, and a surge in sales of heavily discounted foreclosed properties, DataQuick Information Systems said.

Inland markets hit hardest by forecloHome sures and falling buying prices are now the changes most likely to post with high gas prices higher sales than last year, said Andrew Page 18 LePage, a DataQuick analyst. These communities have been attracting rsttime buyers, first-time move-up buyers and investors. Prices in those markets are falling in line with incomes, and some buyers feel they are getting better deals,

Rodham Clinton joined several hundred of Russerts friends and colleagues at a memorial service televised by MSNBC. Russert, the host of NBCs Meet the Press, died Friday of Tim Russert a heart attack. He was 58. Tom Brokaw opened the memorial service by lifting a bottle of Rolling Rock beer to salute his fallen colleague. We are going to do it Irish style, Brokaw, who pilfered the Rolling Rock from Russerts cooler, said at the service held at the Kennedy Center. There will be some tears, some laughs, and the occasional truth. Speakers included Maria Shriver, Mario Cuomo, Mike Barnicle and even the nun who taught Russert in the seventh grade. It ended with Russerts 22-year-old son Luke. He regarded a day greeted without real enthusiasm as a sadly lost opportunity, said Cuomo, the former New York governor for whom Russert worked as an aide in the early 1980s. Shriver, Californias rst lady and member of the Kennedy family, recalled how Russert tried to help get her daughter into Boston College, which Luke attended. He told her its competitive, she said. You need to know people in Boston. You need to know people in the Catholic church. Shriver had that covered, although her daughter landed on the waiting list.

couple, he or she washed their hands in the downstairs bathroom, where diluted bloodstains were found on the sink and toilet. Investor Fernand Wagner, 78, and part-time hairstylist Suzanne Wagner, 68, were found murdered on June 14 at their home. Police disJoseph Cua covered their bodies after Suzanne Wagner failed to show up to work that day. Joseph Cua was their building manager and had known them for 25 years. When police entered the home at 623 Lomita Ave. they found the couple dead from blunt force trauma, Gallagher said. Both victims received blows to their head and face, suffering skull fractures and broken jaws. Fernand Wagner was fully dressed, laying face down in the hallway, while Suzanne Wagner was laying face up in the den in only her bra. A steak knife was missing from a block in the kitchen drawer, and both Wagners had cuts on their bodies, according to Patel and Gallagher. Joseph Cuas DNA was found on Suzanne Wagners panties and nylons, found near her body, as well as a doorjamb near Fernand Wagners body and in the Wagners black Cadillac, found a few miles away in Daly City. Patel said that a second pair of nylons, as well as white gloves and paper towels were found in the kitchen trashcan. Defense attorney Edward Pomeroy said that since Joseph Cua was such a close friend he was at their home multiple times a week, and the DNA was transferred during normal day-today activities. Prosecutors believe that Joseph Cua murdered the Wagners because they realized he was stealing money from them. From January 2004 to June 2006, when the Wagners were killed, Cua embezzled about $237,847, Gallagher said. A forensic tax expert testied earlier in the trial that Joseph Cua was skimming money from renters monthly checks to pay for his nearly $100,000 in commercial debt.

Competency questioned for alleged lip biter


The 55-year-old South San Francisco man who allegedly bit off his wifes bottom lip after she called him a short man and shoved aside their teenage daughter who tried to intervene may be incompetent to stand trial. Akano Nzerem was scheduled to begin jury trial June 23 but the court suspended criminal proceedings after defense attorney Eric Hove raised questions about his clients ability to aid in his own defense. Competency is a persons ability to aid in their own defense while sanity refers to their state of mind at the time of the alleged crime. Two court-appointed doctors will evaluate Nzerem to decide if he should stand trial or be sent to a state hospital for treatment. If he is treated and found competent again, he faces

felony charges of domestic violence, mayhem, false imprisonment, battery, criminal threats and misdemeanor counts of violating a court order and child endangerment. He has pleaded not guilty. On Jan. 24, 2007, Akano Nzerem Nzerems wife of 17 years told police, he punched her repeatedly and threw a bottle because she told a friend he was acting strangely. Their 16-year-old daughter one of six children in the family tried stepping between them but was reportedly tossed aside. Nzerem then allegedly grabbed his wife in a bear hug and bit off her lip.

Doctors tried re-attaching the lip but it didnt take and left her with a large hole on her mouth, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. After his arrest, Nzerem reportedly told police he had to bite her lip off because she called him a short man and attacked him, according to the District Attorneys Ofce. At the time, Nzerem was on probation for a previous misdemeanor conviction for domestic violence. Nzerems wife is standing by her husband and discounts police reports of his pushing their daughter. At previous court appearances, she said the extent of her injuries has been exaggerated by authorities and the arrest cost him his job as a pharmacy technician at San Francisco General Hospital, she said. Nzerem is free from custody on a $500,000 bail bond.

Man arrested for smashing car windows with hammer
Daly City police arrested a 22-year-old man and charged him with 10 counts of malicious mischief for smashing out car windows with a hammer early yesterday morning. Around 2:45 a.m. a resident in the 700 block of Beechwood Drive heard the sounds of a car alarm and saw two or three young men smashing car windows with a hammer, Capt. Michael Edwards said. The resident saw the men get into a dark colored sedan and copied down the license plate number. The car was registered to a home in San Francisco so ofcers staked it out until around 3:45 a.m. when Kevin Luu, the driver of the car, arrived at the home. He was transported to Daly City police station where he admitted that he had gone to the usually quiet neighborhood with the intent of smashing car windows, Edwards said. Luu declined to give the names or any information regarding his accomplices, or any sort of motive for the vandalism. In total, 10 car windows were destroyed.

Grand jury applauds Office of Education

Services offered by the San Mateo County Office of Education and its staff are widely used by school districts, according to a grand jury report released yesterday. A survey of the 23 school districts within the county, three interviews with senior administrators and two Board of Trustees members resulted in the San Mateo County Grand Jurys latest report about the performance of the Office of Education according to those it serves. Overall, Superintendent of Schools Jean Holbrook and her staff earned high marks. The districts utilize many services offered, as well. Despite the high marks, the report does suggest additional transparency is needed when it comes to financial documents and background for agendized Board of Trustee topics. Twenty districts responded to the questionnaires. Answers provided showed praise for Holbrook in all 20 districts. Seventy-five percent or more of the districts utilize county services. Financial services such as payroll and oversight are utilized by all the answering districts. Special education, teacher education and enrichment, educational enrichment for students and advice regarding state and federal laws were also popular services. Districts did have services they would like to see offered including: State-mandated training; better and more professional development; enhanced library support; enhanced financial support; facilities and safety plan meetings; services for children with limited intellectual functioning; employee tracking through California Education Computer Consortium; better dispute resolution; more regional occupational programming; assistance with hard-to-fill positions including speech and language personnel; and instruction utilizing technology. A couple of the suggestions are being looked into already, said Porter Sexton, senior administrator for the board and superintendent services. On the whole, Sexton needed to look into the suggested services. Problems with the county centered around its Web site. The site was updated and is easier to manage, according to the report. However, it does not offer access to financial documents, which the grand jury suggested should be added. Additionally, background materials for items before the Board of Education was requested to be made available online. The annual budget will soon be available online, said Sexton. Sexton plans to have background material available online, although it has yet to be made possible. It may not be possible to post larger items, Sexton said. In those instances, a posting will be put up explaining how the document can be viewed. Weaknesses were also noted when it came to financial services with respect to the Community Day School; the cost of special education; and a lack of updates and enhancements. Problems were noted specifically with special education services including: Decreasing options; high cost; and a lack of supportive software. An exception was noted for the autism program which has good staff development. For more information visit www.sanmateocourt.org/grandjury/.

Police ask for information on electronics store robbery

South San Francisco police are seeking information about a robbery at an electronics retail store Tuesday. Police responded to the 2200 block of Westborough Boulevard around 4:30 p.m. where a man reportedly sprayed an irritating chemical substance that left the clerk incapacitated, according to the Police Department. The suspect then took merchandise and ed on foot, police said. Paramedics treated the clerk on the scene, and no other injuries were reported. The chemical substance had a citrus smell and left an orange residue, police said. The suspect was only described as a bald, Hispanic or Filipino man, 20 to 30 years old with a medium build, about 5 feet 7 inches tall and was wearing a dark blue shirt, police said. The suspect was reportedly inside the store with an associate within an hour of the robbery, said police Sgt. Paul Ritter.

Temple plan causes strife


A new place of worship is planned for downtown San Bruno a Buddhist temple. Yeo Lai Sah Buddhist Monastery and Zen Temple of America, known as the YLS Buddhist Temple, hopes to set up its rst Peninsula spot at 200 San Bruno Ave. currently Skylawn mortuary. Doing so, however, could affect parking for a nearby religious group, Crossroads Christian Center at 270 San Bruno Ave., and the surrounding neighborhood. A use permit was approved by the city Planning Commission Tuesday despite concerns of Crossroad mem-

bers who were instructed to work together. The property has a total lot size of 15,00 square feet with a 6,816-square-foot, two-story structure previously used as a mortuary. The rst oor was dedicated to the business while the second consists of a residential unit. There is also a detached garage. Plans to the rst oor are the most extensive with the benches in the chapel to be removed to create a meditation and prayer room. One stateroom will be converted into a meditation room. A second will be changed into a library. The arrangement room will be turned into a private ofce. Finally, the preparation room will be used as a pantry/storage space area.

The second oor will remain as a residential unit for the two masters of the temple. Parking is the crux of the debate. The neighboring church was allowed by the mortuary to use parking during services. The temple will not be offering the same deal and will be adding parking. Fifteen parking spots are currently on the property with three additional spots proposed in the plans. Additionally, during a community meeting, a representative of the temple stated a 10-passenger van would be used to transport members from different public transportation stops to the temple to lessen the effects on the neighborhood, according to the staff report.

Sequoia reports steady budget Schwarzenegger

By Heather Murtagh

Status quo will be maintained in the projected Sequoia Union High School budget next year, however the uncertainty of the state budget could negatively affect future nancial projections. An increase in both bills and incoming funds are estimated for the district, according to a presentation at last nights board meeting. Next year will bring $97 million in income and $98.3 million in bills. The $8.5 million rolled over from the previous school year will cover the $1.27 million decit. Sequoia conservatively estimates ending the year with $7.25 million or a 5.26 percent reserve. The board will vote on the budget Wednesday, June 25. Those numbers anticipate all budgeted money will be used, which is not historically the case, said Ed LaVigne, assis-

tant superintendent of administrative services. LaVigne anticipated the ending balance actually be higher than budgeted. A loss in state money is accounted for with a 6.5 percent drop in certain areas, said Martin Fuentes, director of budget and nance. For the most part, the district will need to wait until the state budget is passed to have a clear picture of the year ahead. One thing to look out for is the effect of charter schools. The district already has one Summit Preparatory. Plans include opening a school in East Palo Alto in the near future using voterapproved bond money for the facilities in the near future. Additionally, leaders at Summit have expressed interest in opening a second school in the 20092010 school year. The enrollment increases in charter schools does impact Sequoias budget,

LaVigne suggested paying attention to those numbers specically. Another suggestion LaVigne put forward is researching using bonds to set up a trust to fund retiree medical benets. Currently the district has a $1.7 million payment earmarked from the annual budget. The nancing plan could create a lasting trust that produces interest to be used to repay the debt payment and, potentially, even create an additional steady source of income. A plan is not actually before the board, however LaVigne will be leaving the district this summer. He wanted to suggest the solution prior to his departure. Trustee Sally Stewart requested an outline of new projects prior to next weeks meeting. Additionally, she wanted to know what areas could possibly be cut if it became necessary as a result of the governors budget.

opposes oil drilling

By Samantha Young

Grand jury:County makes strides in conservation


A number of county agencies and programs have made good progress toward signicant levels of energy conservation but efforts to cut down on fuel consumption by government vehicles is inconsistent, according to a civil grand jury report issued yesterday. Aside from private vehicles, much of the transportation energy is used by SamTrans and Caltrain which, respectively, retted its buses with cleaner engines and looked into electrication. Both have had some impact but hold promise for considerably more cost and

efciency improvements in the future, the jury concluded. While the county, agencies like SamTrans and some cities are paying attention to the problem of fuel usage, others are inconsistent and seem unconcerned, the jurors found. The jury recommended the City/County Association of Governments work with the jurisdictions so they follow recommendations of the San Mateo County Energy Strategy; appoint another task force for an indepth study with practical recommendations for reducing transportation-related energy use; encourage efficiency of

vehicle eets; and, support the Green Team and Cool Cities programs. The jury also recommended the SamTrans Board of Directors encourage staff to test and study alternative fuels and electrication; be ready to expand SamTrans service if increased fuel costs cause another spike in mass transit and encourage Caltrain to do the same. The nal recommendations are for the cities of Brisbane, Colma, Daly City and East Palo Alto. The grand jury suggested the cities begin the ve milestones of the Cool Cities program which would bring enrollment to 100 percent within San Mateo County.

SACRAMENTO Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said Wednesday he opposes lifting a ban on new oil drilling in coastal waters, breaking with President Bush and Republican presidential candidate John McCain. He called Californias coastline an international treasure that must be protected by a federal oil-drilling moratorium that has been in place for 27 years. Were serious about that, and were not going to change that, he told reporters and business executives at BIO International, Arnold an annual biotechnology industry confer- Schwarzenegger ence in San Diego. Schwarzenegger, who has endorsed McCains presidential bid, said the federal offshore drilling ban was not to blame for soaring gas prices. In a statement issued earlier in the day, the governor said technological innovations and expanded fuel choices for consumers ultimately will lead the way to reduced fuel costs. We are in this situation because of our dependence on traditional petroleum-based oil, Schwarzenegger said in the statement, which referred only to Bushs call for lifting the ban and did not mention McCain.

Towns suffer big losses as rivers rise

By Allen G. Breed

OAKVILLE, Iowa Even before the Iowa River used this town as a shortcut to the Mississippi, there wasnt much here: A post ofce, a convenience store, a tavern and a little restaurant. The largest employer was a pork-andgrain producer called TriOak Foods. The companys towering grain elevator was the tallest structure for miles around. Then the oodwaters soaking much of the Midwest turned their force on the

regions small communities most with skylines that consist only of a water tower and maybe a couple of church steeples. As the rivers rise, these modest towns survive because neighbor helps neighbor, and the people reinforcing the levees are business owners, farmers and fellow church members who have lived there for years. My house is past help. So were trying to save everybody elses, said Bethany Frank as she helped ll sandbags in a church parking lot in Oakville, about 40 miles southwest of Davenport. Her home

But small towns up and down the Mississippi still awaited the worst of the ooding. Some rivers were not expected to crest until Thursday. Storms and ooding across six states this month have killed 24 people, injured 148 and caused more than $1.5 billion in estimated damage in Iowa alone a gure thats likely to increase as river levels climb in Missouri and Illinois.

SACRAMENTO Republican lawmakers said Wednesday they want a spending cap and emergency reserve fund as part of a long-term solution to Californias budget problems. The proposal would allow state spending to grow only as fast as the population plus ination. Half of any revenue over that limit would go to a special emergency reserve fund while half would be used to pay off state debts. Money in the reserve fund could be used only when state revenue fell below the spending limit in any given year. The system is broke. Unless we take our steps now to adopt long-term xes, our budget system is going to not work in the future, said Assembly Minority Leader Mike Villines, RClovis. Republicans want to solve this budget crisis, not just for this year but for the years to come.

U.S.says Shiite group behind Iraq bombing

By Bushra Juhi

Rockets come before Gaza truce

By Matti Friedman

BAGHDAD The U.S. military blamed a renegade Shiite group Wednesday for a deadly truck bombing in a Baghdad Shiite neighborhood and said it was seeking to reignite sectarian violence. Iraqi officials said the death toll from the bombing rose to 63. The Iraqi government said Tuesdays attack, the deadliest in Baghdad in three months, would stiffen its resolve to defeat the terrorists and to maintain the security achievements. No group claimed responsibility for the blast, which occurred on a bustling commercial street in Hurriyah, scene of some of the bloodiest sectarian slaughter in 2006. That led to speculation Sunni extremists may have been behind the attack. But U.S. spokesman Lt. Col. Steven Stover said the command did not believe alQaida in Iraq was behind the attack based on the type of vehicle and explosives used. Instead, he said the command believed the attack was carried out by a Shiite special group led by Haydar Mehdi Khadum alFawadi, whom Stover described as a murderous thug seeking to incite violence for his individual profit and gain. U.S. and Iraqi forces have been searching for al-Fawadi for months, and his photo is displayed on checkpoints in the area. Authorities have offered a $10,000 bounty for information leading to his arrest. We believe he ordered the attack to incite (Shiite) violence against Sunnis; that his intent was to disrupt Sunni resettlement in Hurriyah in order to maintain extortion of real estate rental income to support his nefarious activities, Stover said in an email. Several Iraqi police officials said the casualty toll stood at 63, with another 78 wounded. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not supposed to release the information. Stover gave a figure of 27 dead and 40 wounded.

JERUSALEM Palestinian militants fired 50 rockets and mortars toward Israel on Wednesday, and Israel responded with airstrikes in Gaza just hours before a truce was to take effect, illustrating how fragile the cease-fire between Israel and Hamas would be. In another diplomatic initiative, Israel called on neighboring Lebanon to open peace negotiations an overture that was quickly rejected by Lebanons prime minister. After a year of violence that has killed more than 400 Palestinians and seven Israelis, the leaders of both sides expressed hope a truce would succeed but made clear they have little faith in their adversaries commitment to the deal. I hope it will succeed. I believe there will be quiet in (Israels) south, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said in a speech to philanthropists. But he also said he instructed his military to prepare for any operation, short or long, that might be necessary if the truce breaks down as several previous ones have. In Gaza, Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said the truce would ease the lives of Gazans, but success or failure was in Israels hands. The calm is going to bring stability to Israel if they commit themselves to it, he said. The truce deal between Israel and Hamas

was reached after months of efforts by Egypt and could avert a large-scale Israeli military incursion. The talks were brokered by Egypt because Israel, like much of the international community, shuns Hamas for refusing to recognize Israel or renounce violence. But on Wednesday, violence was still in evidence and a truce seemed remote. The military said at least 40 rockets and 10 mortar shells exploded in Israel by nightfall, an especially high one-day total. Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for much of the rocket fire, saying it was to avenge Israeli airstrikes that killed 10 militants in the previous two days. Israel hit back with two more airstrikes, wounding two Palestinians, according to Hamas security officials.

Afghan, NATO troops kill 36 Taliban militants

By Noor Khan and Jason Straziuso

ARGHANDAB, Afghanistan Backed by helicopters firing missiles, hundreds of NATO and Afghan forces hunted Taliban militants in villages outside Kandahar on Wednesday, killing dozens of insurgents. NATO reported only light resistance in Arghandab district, a lush river valley lled with fruit groves that offer militants bountiful defensive positions. The Afghan army says up to 400 militants poured into the area on Monday, just 10 miles northwest of Kandahar

city, the Talibans former power base. U.S. and NATO ofcials have repeatedly played down the scope of the Taliban push. But the swift military response 700 Afghan soldiers flew to Kandahar on a moments notice and the ghter aircraft dedicated by NATO suggest that keeping Arghandab free from militants is an urgent priority. Arghandab is considered a gateway to Kandahar. If militants can gain a foothold there, attacks become easier on the city once commanded by fugitive Taliban leader Mullah Omar.

Elsewhere in Afghanistan, militants killed six NATO soldiers and wounded 10. Just last week Defense Secretary Robert Gates called attention to the worsening situation in Afghanistan, noting that American and allied combat deaths here in May surpassed the monthly toll in Iraq for the rst time. The Afghan Defense Ministry said more than 20 Taliban fighters were killed Wednesday in NATO airstrikes in the Arghandab village of Tabin and 16 more were killed in the village of Khohak. Two Afghan soldiers were also killed, the ministry said in a statement.

funding McCain calls for 45 nuclear reactors War bill reaches agreement
By Andrew Taylor


SPRINGFIELD, Mo. Sen. John McCain called Wednesday for the construction of 45 new nuclear reactors by 2030 and pledged $2 billion a year in federal funds to make clean coal a reality, measures designed to reduce dependence on foreign oil. In a third straight day of campaigning devoted to the energy issue, the Republican presidential nominee-in-waiting also said the only time Democratic rival Barack Obama voted for a tax cut was for a break for the oil companies. McCain said the 104 nuclear reactors currently operating around the country produce about 20 percent of the nations annual electricity needs. Every year, these reactors alone spare the atmosphere from the equivalent of nearly all auto emissions in America. Yet for all these benets, we have not broken ground

on a single nuclear plant in over thirty years, he said. And our manufacturing base to even construct these plants is almost gone. Even so, he said he would set the country on a course to build 45 new ones by 2030, with a longer-term goal of adding another 55 in the future. We will need to recover all the knowledge and skills that have been lost over three stagnant decades in a

highly technical eld, he conceded. Later, at a news conference, McCain said he favors steps to reduce the time plant owners need to obtain the necessary permits. He suggested U.S. companies use common technology to shave the time in takes to bring a new nuclear facility on line. He also said a decision by President Carter three decades ago not to pursue fuel reprocessing technology should be reversed. In an appearance before an audience at Missouri State University, McCain also said, We will need to solve complex problems of moving and storing materials that will always need safeguarding.

WASHINGTON President Bush would win $162 billion in long-overdue funding to carry out military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan into next year under a bipartisan agreement sealed on Capitol Hill on Wednesday. The agreement reached between House Democrats and Republicans and the White House if passed into law as expected would nally put to rest Bushs long-standing battles with congressional Democrats over war funding.

Obama says bin Laden must not be a martyr

Engineer gets two years jail for espionage

By Jordan Robertson

WASHINGTON Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Wednesday he would bring Osama bin Laden to justice in a way that wouldnt allow the terrorist mastermind to become a martyr, but he may be killed if the U.S. government nds him. First of all, I think there is an executive order out on Osama bin Ladens head, the Illinois senator

said at a news conference. And if Im president, and we have the opportunity to capture him, we may not be able to capture him alive. Obamas camBarack Obama paign said he was referring to a classified Memorandum of Notication that President Clinton approved in 1998 revealed in the 9/11 Commission

report that would allow the CIA to kill bin Laden if capture werent feasible. Obama said he wouldnt discuss what approach he would take to bring bin Laden to justice if he were apprehended. But he said the Nuremberg trials for the prosecution of Nazi leaders are an inspiration because the victors acted to advance universal principles and set a tone for the creation of an international order. What would be important would be for us to do it in a way that allows

the entire world to understand the murderous acts that hes engaged in and not to make him into a martyr, and to assure that the United States government is abiding by basic conventions that would strengthen our hand in the broader battle against terrorism, Obama said. Obama was questioned about bin Laden after he met with a new team of national security advisers. The meeting came after rival John McCains campaign said Obama had a pre-9/11 mind-set for promoting criminal trials for terrorists.

SAN JOSE An engineer who admitted he tried to sell ghter-pilot training software to the Chinese Navy was sentenced Wednesday to 24 months in federal prison, in the rst sentencing for a newly dened intellectual property crime. Xiaodong Sheldon Meng, 44, a Chinese national with Canadian citizenship, was sentenced on the rare charge of committing economic espionage against the U.S. Its the most serious crime under the Economic Espionage Act of 1996 and involves stealing trade secrets to benet a foreign government.

tried to kidnap her at a park. The girl snapped a photo and ran away after Mohammed Al Hamdani, 39, reportedly asked her to get into his car. Police later circulated the photo and tracked down Hamdani. On the other hand, in Ohio, the 12-year-old girl is the one running afoul of the law. The girl, known only as Victoria, supposedly scammed hundreds of people by using Multiple Sclerosis Society material to convince donors to buy $40 season passes for an amusement park. By some accounts, the girl tells people her grandmother had the disease but police say that story like the season passes just isnt true. While nobody should be bilking the good-hearted by playing on their compassion, not to mention the lure of a good thrill ride, the girl should be lauded for strong determination at such a young age. She obviously has a future in white-collar business. In Canada, an equally determined 12-year-old girl took her father to Quebec Superior Court after he grounded her for chatting on Web sites and posting inappropriate photos of herself online. The court agreed his refusal to let her go on a school trip was too severe a punishment. Elsewhere, the world agreed parenting just got a little harder. In Estonia, a 12-year-old girls refusal to obey had more dire consequences. Doctors removed a 600gram lump of hair from Kausar Parveens stomach after she complained of pains. Parveen admitted locking herself in her room to eat hair for seven years, in agrant disobedience of her parents orders. Thats a story to chew on. These last girls in particular arent shining examples of pre-teen females at least in comparison to the rst two go-getters. But they do prove that not every pre-adolescent girl is only obsessed only with text messaging only in shorthand and emoticons, pining for the next installment of High School Musical, clamoring for American Idol tour tickets and dressing like Paris Hilton. The nine to 12 set is a gray area,


Girl power
ets here it for the girls, particularly that tween set! In this era of Hannah Montana craziness and female teenage role models that are perpetually one club date away from rehab or unplanned pregnancy, it is refreshing to see recent headlines showcasing young women girls really who arent looking for anybody else to take charge. In what is being called a lemonade stand-off, 12-year-old Dominique Moreeld turned the tables on a would-be robber. After Steven Tryon, 18, tried stealing $17.50 from Moreeld and her fellow stand workers, the teen chased him down while calling police on her cell phone. Tryon holed up away from his teenage pursuer for 45 minutes before surrendering to police. A sour situation for Tryon but sweet for Moreeld the kids now sell snow cones as well as the original lemonade and local press reports they are taking their business on the road around Terra Haute. Thats the epitome of making lemonade from lemons. In a different story with a picture-perfect ending, Denver police were able to nab a potential kidnapper after an 11-year-old girl used her cell phone to capture the image of the man who allegedly

Sen.Barack Obama and fighting rumors

The Austin (Texas) AmericanStatesman

emocratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama learned an important lesson from the 2004 presidential campaign: Dont be passive about false rumors. When Democratic nominee and Vietnam War veteran John Kerry, who served with distinction in the

U.S. Navy and won multiple Purple Hearts for wounds in battle, was attacked for a lack of patriotism, his campaign was slow to respond. Obama wont be so passive. ... But after the dustup last week over comments attributed to his wife, Michelle, the Obama campaign took to the Internet with a vengeance and a new Web site. Michelle Obama was accused of using a derogatory term for white people, which she and her husband

roundly denied when it was reported and deny again on the Web site. The name of the Web site, ghtthesmears.com, says it all clearly and concisely. Obamas camp will respond to smears instantly and forcefully. It will not be easily swiftboated, not be passive about rumors no matter how bizarre, not be caught unaware of the destructive potential of false statements. Its an unfortunate reality of modern politics that the most

absurd charges assume a life of their own on the Internet. Anyone can post any nutty thing, and it spreads like a virus. This is the new gutter politics, and it can be effective. ... But Democrats have learned from the swiftboating of Kerry that they can and must ght back. Fightthesmears.com is an excellent tool for turning lies and smears back on their perpetrators and revealing the truth.

Business as usual: Our alienated citizens
Editor, I see our alienated San Mateo County citizens failed to vote in vast numbers in the June 3 Primary. I wouldnt be surprised that more illegal immigrants who have stolen identities voted for our incumbent Board of Supervisors and city incumbents reinforcing our countywide gridlock. That protects them and makes the county a Sanctuary County. Citizens that did or didn't vote also had a wonderful opportunity to hold an unofficial referendum on breaking our local and county political gridlock. They could have sent a message to our career politicians that we demand better performance that can be quantifiably measured by our electorate. So how do the non-voters want to measure the standards of performance for our newly reelected officials? What was accomplished beyond basic maintenance by government during the last four years? In two to four years, will we have better ethical performance and restore the public trust, will we have affordable housing, and will we have immigration enforcement; will Redwood City downtown redevelopment be centered elsewhere? I dont think so, if the past is the key to the present. Well have more natural-alien U.S. citizens divorced from their county, the Union and our lack of immigration enforcement will give way to a guest workers program leading to citizenship and a new Amnesty Program. The wages will remain flat and we will continue to exploit our new immigrants. However, it can be said that our immigrants, as naturalized citizens, will not be alienated because they will appreciate and exercise the power of the vote. the June 4 edition of the San Mateo Daily Journal that it seems to be conventional wisdom. I wonder whether anyone has taken a poll of such voters lately. Ive been voting absentee for years, and started when I was still working, and I am far more liberal than most Democratic candidates dare to be. I am old, 75 years old, and some people would regard me as rich, some as poor; it really depends upon how many more years my income has to cover. I also file my ballot within a few days of receiving it and I find it protects me from a last minute flurry of garbage. Although I got about eight fliers for one of the Assembly candidates, it was all wasted because I voted long before the barrage started. It all went right into the recycling. rebel faction joined in signing the Darfur Peace Agreement. It is tempting to hail the DPA as a final solution. This, however, is far from the truth. Violence in the region has hardly decreased. Whats more, only one of three main rebel factions has signed on to the DPA, exacerbating an already dire situation as these groups turn against one another. Darfur begs our attention now more than ever. Current African Union forces have proved incapable of enforcing a cease-fire, leaving little reason to trust their policing of a peace agreement that lacks cohesive support. Without UN troops, the DPA will become another empty promise to the people of Sudan. The United States has been a strong leader on this issue. We must continue our efforts and not relax them in the face of the DPA. Our work in Darfur is far from over.

Tim Russerts death

The State Journal-Register, Springeld, Ill.

hen the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum opened three years ago, it sought to pull Lincolns presidency out of the history books and drop it into a modern context. Among the exhibits that does that in stellar fashion is Campaign 1860, which sets the four-way presidential campaign of 1860 in a modern media setting. Setting viewers straight on the views of candidates Lincoln, Stephen A. Douglas, John C. Breckinridge and John Bell is the familiar, authoritative presence of Tim Russert.

Russert was a natural choice for this role. Since taking the helm of Meet the Press in December 1991, Russert had earned respect across the political spectrum. If a generation was to understand the bitterly contested presidential contest of 1860, who better to explain it than the man who guided America through the bitterly contested presidential contest of 2000? Campaign 1860 also appeared to have staying power. Russert, after all, was at the top of his game when the exhibit was unveiled. In fact, his participation was a tightly guarded secret prior to the museums opening. His loss last week was a truly sad moment for anyone who followed national politics in America.

For a year and a half, I have consistently asked that the Congress pass a good farm bill that I can sign, Bush said after he vetoed the bill for the second time. Regrettably, the Congress has failed to do so. At a time of high food prices and record farm income, this bill lacks program reform and scal discipline. About two-thirds of the farm law pays for domestic nutrition programs such as food stamps, which will see increases of around $1 billion a year. About $40 billion is for farm subsidies, and almost $30 billion will go to farmers to protect environmentally sensitive farmland. Congress has overridden Bush on only one other bill a measure authorizing $23 billion in water projects that was enacted in November.


Congress enacts farm bill over Bush veto,again

By Mary Clare Jalonick

WASHINGTON Congress enacted a massive $290 billion farm bill for a second time on Wednesday after a clerical error in the rst bill threatened delivery of U.S. food aid abroad. The Senate voted 80-14 to override President Bushs veto of the legislation, more than the two-thirds majority necessary to enact it. Bush vetoed the bill for a second time earlier Wednesday, and the House voted 317109 to override it a few hours later. Most of the bill was enacted in May, when both the House and Senate easily overrode Bushs first veto of the legislation. But 34 pages of the bill that would extend foreign aid programs were mistakenly missing from the parchment copy Congress sent to the White House, so that section did not become law.

Stocks drop again

earlier on declining revenue. Earlier, FedEx forecast that earnings for the scal year that began this month will fall well short of what Wall Street had been expecting. The shippers prediction serves as the latest sign that oil prices, which have nearly doubled in the past year, are exacting a burdensome tax on businesses and consumers alike. I think the news out of FedEx today really is starting to make people second guess some of the optimism that had been brewing over the last few weeks, said Craig Peckham, market strategist at Jefferies & Co. in New York. The Dow fell 131.24, or 1.08 percent, to 12,029.06. The index briefly fell below 12,000 before recovering. The index hadnt traded below the 12,000 mark since March 18 and last closed below that level on March 17. The Dows decline follows its loss of more than 100 points on Tuesday. Broader stock indicators also pulled back Wednesday. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 13.12, or 0.97 percent, to 1,337.81, and the Nasdaq composite index fell 28.02, or 1.14 percent, to 2,429.71.

NEW YORK Wall Street sank Wednesday for the second straight day on renewed concerns about the nancial sector and FedEx Corp.s warning that weakening demand and surging fuel costs would weigh on its prots in the coming year. The Dow Jones industrial average nished down more than 130 points, after briey dipping below the 12,000 mark for the rst time since mid-March. All three major stock indexes nished down about 1 percent, as oil and bond prices jumped. Unease about nancials arose after several worrisome developments. Fifth Third Bancorp said it plans to cut its dividend by nearly two-thirds, raise $1 billion through an offering of preferred stock and generate another $1 billion through the sale of businesses. MF Global Ltd. predicted that tight credit spreads will weigh on its scal rst-quarter earnings. The futures and options broker said it plans to sell $300 million in convertible securities to help pay down a loan due this year. And although Morgan Stanley reported a slightly better-than-expected scal second-quarter prot, earnings at the nations second-largest investment bank were still down 61 percent from a year

Department said the nations crude oil stockpiles fell less than expected last week but that gasoline supplies declined. Though often volatile, the weekly numbers have drawn increased attention in recent months as investors look for any clues about where energy prices are headed. The run-up in oil has unnerved some on Wall Street and raised the prospect that strapped consumers are going to pare spending on discretionary items because they are forced to reach deeper into their wallets at the gas pump. Bond prices jumped as stocks declined. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note, which moves opposite its price, fell to 4.14 percent from 4.20 percent late Tuesday. The dollar was mixed against other major currencies, while gold prices rose. Among nancials one of the weakest performing sectors of the session Morgan Stanley rose 10 cents to $40.69, but Fifth Third, a regional bank, fell $3.47, or 27 percent, to $9.26, and MF Global fell $5.43, or 41 percent, to $7.83. The nancials are getting hit. There just isnt anything to spark interest in buying, said Ron Kiddoo, chief investment officer for Cozad Asset Management Inc. in Champaign, Ill. He said that investors are nding it difcult to set aside their worries about the economy.

The Government Accountability Ofce upheld Boeings protest of the refueling tanker contract and recommended the service hold a new competition. The congressional watchdog said it found a number of signicant errors in the Air Forces February decision, including its failure to fairly judge the relative merits of each proposal. While the GAO decision is not binding, it puts tremendous pressure on the Air Force to reopen the contract and could pave the way for Boeing to capture part or all of the award from Northrop and Airbus parent European Aeronautic Defence and Space Co. And it gives ammunition to Boeing supporters in Congress who have been seeking to block funding for the deal or force a new competition. The decision also is a setback for Sen. John McCain, the Republican presiden-

tial nominee in waiting, who was instrumental in the Pentagons long attempt to complete a deal on the tanker. The Air Force will determine its next steps after completing a review of the GAO ruling within 60 days. The service will select the best value tanker for our nations defense, while being good stewards of the taxpayer dollar, said Air Force Assistant Secretary Sue C. Payton. Boeing said it looks forward to working with the Air Force on the next steps in this critical procurement for our warghters. Northrop said it continues to believe its plane was the best option for the military. The GAO decision marks the second big blow to the Air Force this month, coming on the heels of the ouster of its two top ofcials over mistaken nuclear shipments. The Air Force also is trying to rebuild a tattered reputation following a 2003 procurement scandal that sent its top acquisition ofcial to prison for conict of interest and led to the collapse of an earlier tanker contract with Boeing. McCain played a key role in exposing that scandal. McCain sent two letters in 2006 urging

the Defense Department to make sure the bidding proposals guaranteed competition between Boeing and Airbus. Months later, Airbuss parent company retained the rm of a McCain campaign adviser to lobby for the tanker deal. McCain on Wednesday called the GAO decision unfortunate for the taxpayers, saying Air Force ofcials need to go back and redo the contracting process and ... hopefully they will get it right. Democratic presidential nominee-inwaiting Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., lauded the GAO decision and called for a fair and transparent rebidding of the contract. With a leadership vacuum, a concerned Congress and an upcoming change in the White House, the Air Force needs to act quickly, said Jim McAleese, a defense industry consultant in Virginia. The tanker contract has sparked a erce backlash among lawmakers from Washington, Kansas and other states that stand to gain jobs if Boeing succeeds in landing the award. The Air Force will have no choice but to rebid this project, said Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash.

Yahoos Flickr founders head for exits


SUNNYVALE The husband-andwife team behind Yahoo Inc.s popular photo-sharing service Flickr have resigned, following two top executives that have departed since the Internet pioneer rejected a $47.5 billion takeover offer from Microsoft Corp. Flickr co-founders Stewart Buttereld and Caterina Fake want to pursue another opportunity that they havent yet revealed, Yahoo spokeswoman Terrell Karlsten said Wednesday. Fakes last day at Sunnyvale-based Yahoo was June 13. Buttereld plans to leave July 12. The couple sold Flickr to Yahoo for a reported $35 million in 2005, about a year after they created the Web site for showing off digital photography. Flickrs system for displaying and sharing photos attracted such a loyal fol-

lowing that Time magazine included Buttereld and Fake on a 2006 list of the worlds most inuential people. Flickr already had been weaning itself from its co-founders. Fake had been working in another Yahoo division that cultivates new technology and Buttereld took an extended paternity leave last year. Kakul Srivastava, who became Flickrs general manager in April, will continue to oversee the photo-sharing service, Karlsten said. The Flickr defections follow the resignations of two Yahoo executive vice presidents, Jeff Weiner and Usama Fayyad. Weiner oversaw an array of services that included Yahoos search engine and e-mail. He left to become an executive in residence at two venture capital firms, Accel Partners

and Greylock Partners. Fayyad had been in charge of Yahoos analysis of user data a job aimed at identifying online ads more likely to pique a readers interest. Yahoo attributed all the departures to personal decisions unrelated to the outcome of the companys ve-month battle with Microsoft. The software maker withdrew a $33 per share offer on May 3 after Yahoo sought $37 per share a price that the companys stock hasnt reached since January 2006. Yahoo shares fell 34 cents, or 1.5 percent, to nish Wednesday at $22.91. Had a Microsoft deal been reached, all of Yahoos 13,800 employees would have been covered by a generous severance plan that would have paid them if they were red or quit after being reassigned to a new job within two years of a takeover.

Knee knocks out Tiger

More knee surgery to keep Woods out of action for 6 to 8 months
By Doug Ferguson

Recruiting is a new ball game

ears ago, high school athletes depended on their high school successes to make impressions with college coaches. Along came high-level club sports and they increased an athletes visibility. Now, high school athletes are in full-blown sell mode trying to make connections that allow them to catch the attention of college coaches to earn coveted scholarships. Alex Sortwell is one of those players. Sortwell just nished up his junior year at Aragon and his goal over the next nine months to a year is to earn a college baseball scholarship. To make that happen, Sortwell along with dozens of other players around the Peninsula go on the summer showcase and college camp tour. All in the name of building their name. Nowadays, [showcases] are everything, Sortwell said. There are so many kids that are trying to play college baseball. Its all about promoting yourself. Showcases are basically summer camps for high school baseball players, who are weighed, measured, timed, gauged and gone over with a ne-tooth comb to see if they have the makeup a college baseball coach is looking for. If a player makes an impression at one showcase, it can open doors to others. While they are playing baseball, its a game with which Sortwell is not familiar. You take ineld or outeld (practice) to show off your arm, you get [batting practice], they time your 60-yard dash, then you get assigned a team and play, Sortwell said. The rst showcase I went to, I was lost. You have to learn how to play it. You have to focus its all about you. Its not about baseball. Its about you. Its actually kind of lonely. Sortwell looks at the showcase events as a necessary evil, I hate showcases, to be honest, but realizes that unless you come from

Tiger Woods walked tenderly out of Torrey Pines with a U.S. Open trophy he was destined to win on a left leg worse than anyone imagined. A group of children called out to him and Woods looked over and waved. It turned out to be a most symbolic gesture. So long, Tiger. See you next year. Woods revealed Wednesday he has been playing for at least 10 months with a torn ligament in his left knee, and that he suffered a double stress fracture in his left leg two weeks before the U.S. Open. He said he will have season-ending surgery, knocking him out of the nal two majors and the Ryder Cup. Now, it is clear that the right thing to do is to listen to my doctors, follow through with this surgery and focus my attention on rehabilitating my knee, Woods said on his Web site. He sure wasnt listening to doctors by playing the U.S. Open, a victory that now looks even more impressive. Out of competition for two months because of April 15 surgery to clean out cartilage in his left knee, he suffered a double stress fracture in his left tibia two weeks before the U.S. Open. Hank Haney, his swing coach, was with him in Florida when doctors told Woods the preferred treatment was three weeks on crutches, followed by three weeks of rest. According to Haney, Woods looked at the doctor and said: Im playing the U.S. Open, and Im going to win. And then he started putting on his shoes, Haney recalled. He looked at me and said, Come on, Hank. Well just putt today. Every night, I kept thinking there was no chance hes going to play. He had to stop in his tracks for 30 seconds walking from the dining room table to the refrigerator. He was not going to miss the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines. There just wasnt any discussion. And it was a U.S. Open that will be talked about for years. Despite a torn anterior cruciate ligament and a double stress fracture, Woods managed to win a major that required ve days of inching, grimacing and a long list of spectacular shots that have dened his career.

Startupheaded to Junior Olympics Another Zito start,

By Emanuel Lee

When it comes to club volleyball programs, Los Gatos-based Vision and Santa Clara-based City Beach are the top destination spots for the best players not only from the South Bay but from the Peninsula, too. Payes Performance in San Carlos is looking to join that elite status in the not too distant future. Just in its third year as a program, Payes Performance is sending three teams its 12s, 13s and 15s squads to club volleyballs most prestigious event, the Junior Olympics, which will take place June 27 to July 3 in Dallas. Payes Performance sent three teams to the Junior Olympics in its rst year as a program and two last year. It started off with three squads and now has ve (one each from the 12 to 16 age divisions). Unlike some of the bigger clubs, Payes has only

been homers. Zito (2-11) saw the end to his three-game winning streak against the Tigers, picking up his rst loss to Detroit since Aug. 7, 2003 Barry Zito the year after his AL Cy Young Award season with the Oakland Athletics. Zito still looks nothing like his old self. He has just one win in his last ve starts and this was the second-shortest

one team per age group. Compare that to Vision and City Beach, which boasts up to four teams per age group, and you can see why the founding members of Payes volleyball program call themselves the little startup that could. Its a huge source of pride for us to be sending three teams to the Junior Olympics, said Dave Huan, who coaches the 12s and 15s teams and along with club director Darlene Tran, 13s coach and P.R. director Robin John Rosales and Lawrence Dudash are the founding members of the program. Weve done something thats rarely been

done, and thats building something from the ground up. We pretty much took nothing and built something out of it. Huan and Rosales compare the foundation of the program to a startup. At rst its all about getting the name out there. Then you look for increased exposure, all the while developing your product. Huan has plenty of experience in that department, because he works for Redwood City-based ReputationDefender.com, one of the industry leaders in online reputation management. Using a startup as a

Stanford survives,moves on in CWS

By Eric Olson

Cardinal 8, Miami 3
World Series. Miami, ranked No. 1 for most of the second half of the season, has been eliminated in three games in each of its four CWS appearances since 2003. Phelps collected three of Stanfords 11 hits and drove in two runs. He had a single and double to go with his triple and missed out on hitting for the cycle when he ied out to short right in the seventh inning. After Miamis rst two batters reached base on singles, Sandbrink and Davis combined to hold Miami without a hit until the sixth inning. Davis (8-3), sent to the bullpen for the CWS after struggling as a starter late in the year, shut down a

OMAHA, Neb. Sean Ratliff homered and Cord Phelps tripled in Stanfords four-run fth inning, and the Cardinal ousted top-seeded Miami from the College World Series with an 8-3 victory Wednesday night. The Cardinal (41-23-2) advanced to the Bracket 1 finals against Georgia, needing to beat the Bulldogs twice to return to the bestof-three championship round for the second time since 2003. Starter Danny Sandbrink and reliever Erik Davis held the potent offense of Miami (53-11) in check. The Hurricanes failed to join the 1999 squad as the only No. 1 national seeds to win the College

Hurricanes threat when he entered in the fth. After Sandbrink issued a leadoff walk, Davis walked his rst batter to put two runners on. But he got Jemile Weeks to foul out trying to bunt and struck out Miamis top sluggers, Yonder Alonso and Mark Sobolewski. For Alonso, the No. 7 pick in the draft by the Cincinnati Reds, it marked the rst time since March 2007 that he struck out three times in a game. Davis worked out of trouble again in the eighth after giving up three straight singles to open the inning. Jason Hagertys sacrice y pulled Miami within five runs, but the Hurricanes would get no more as Davis struck out Yasmani Grandal and Blake Tekotte. Drew Storen took over for Davis

with no outs in the ninth after Weeks walked and Alonso doubled. He got Sobolewski to pop out and struck out Ryan Jackson, then got the last out when he snagged Adan Severinos hard liner. The Cardinal took a 2-1 lead in the third on Randy Molinas sacrice y and added another run in the fourth before breaking things open in the fth. Ratliffs 22nd homer of the season and fourth in 10 NCAA tournament games ended Miami starter Enrique Garcias night after 4 1-3 innings. Garcia (7-3) had worked at least ve innings in eight of his nine previous starts, but was tagged for ve runs on eight hits the last being Ratliffs high fly into the stands in right-center. Toby Gerhart reached on

Sobolewskis error at third and Jake Schlander singled before Phelps sent a pitch from Anthony Nalepa into deep center for a two-run triple. Davis, a 13th-round draft pick by the San Diego Padres, earned a measure of redemption with his performance. He had been a starter in all 16 of his appearances before the CWS but landed in the bullpen after three straight poor outings. He had allowed 11 earned runs in his previous 13 innings coming into Omaha, and pitched an inning of relief against Florida State on Saturday and allowed a run on two hits. In his four innings against Miami, Davis gave up two runs on seven hits and two walks. He struck out six. Sandbrink, a freshman, allowed two hits and a run in the sixth start of his career.

As wilt against Haren, Diamondbacks

Arizona 11, As 1
Chris Young and Stephen Drew homered for the Diamondbacks, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Arizona had been outscored 35-7 during the skid, but its dormant attack awoke against Oaklands Joe Blanton. The Diamondbacks gave Haren all the support hed need with ve runs in the rst. Drew, Conor Jackson and Orlando Hudson each singled, and

PHOENIX Dominating his former team, Dan Haren allowed one run and drove in three as the Arizona Diamondbacks routed the Oakland Athletics 11-1 on Wednesday night. Haren (7-4) limited the As to four hits in seven innings, walking one and striking out eight. Haren also hit a three-run double as the Diamondbacks paid back the As for a 15-1 drubbing in the series opener.

Chad Tracy doubled down the right field line to score Drew and Jackson. Blanton (3-10) retired the next two batters before Young hit a 1-1 pitch 412 feet into the left eld bleachers to give the Diamondbacks a 5-0 lead. It was Youngs 13th homer, and his rst since May 31. Drew, Hudson and Tracy each had three hits for Arizona, which matched a season high with 15. Haren, acquired from Oakland last winter in an eight-player deal, gave up a one-out single and walk in

the rst but then retired the next 12 batters. He cruised until the seventh, when Haren gave up a two-out double to Carlos Gonzalez and an RBI single to Kurt Suzuki. Haren, who entered hitting .133 (4-for-30), added to his lead in the third. With the bases loaded and two out, he lined a double over Gonzalezs head in center eld to clear the bases and put the Diamondbacks ahead 8-0. Three of Harens four hits this season have been doubles. Drew added a two-run homer in

the fth against Chad Gaudin. Blanton allowed eight runs in three innings, his shortest outing since May 25, 2005, when he left after retiring one of the nine batters he faced. Blanton lost his fourth straight start and is 1-6 since May 2. Notes: Blantons 10th loss came on June 18, the earliest date for an Oakland pitcher to lose his 10th game. ...

NASCAR drivers have to cope with 140-degree heat

By Larry Lage

BROOKLYN, Mich. The Car of Tomorrow is making life hotter for NASCARs drivers today. Heat-stricken drivers had just enough strength to rant about the topic earlier this month at the Pocono 500 and the conversation

was a hot topic again last week at Michigan International Speedway. I heard someone make a comment, Theyre race-car drivers, making millions of dollars. Theyre hot. Who cares? Jeff Burton said. I guess thats a good point, but at the same time its to the point of being ridiculous. NASCAR technical director Steve

Peterson said the new cars can get about 10 degrees hotter up to 140 degrees than previous models because exhaust exits on the right side instead of both sides. You could certainly cook eggs on it to say the least, Jimmie Johnson said. With all the radiant heat from the tubes and the steel around you over the course of the

race, you just cant get away from the heat. Peterson insisted there are measures some teams are taking to improve conditions for their drivers such as adding insulation and adjusting the routing of air ducts and vents. Some teams are having success by doing those things and some teams are reluctant to add weight or

alter the aerodynamics, Peterson said. The different way teams are attacking the heat leads to us seeing one guy driving with a oor pan at 140 degrees and another guy at 100 in the same race. Its a difcult area for NASCAR to regulate. Some drivers say its not a problem and others say its a serious one, so obviously we want to help those guys.

Russia sends Sweden packing


INNSBRUCK, Austria Russia dominated a 2-0 victory over Sweden on Wednesday night in a Group D elimination game, sending the Russians to the European Championship quarternals. Roman Pavlyuchenko scored in the rst half and Andrei Arshavin, coming off a two-match suspension, made it 2-0 right after the break. That set up a match against the Netherlands on Saturday in Basel. Russia finished second behind Spain on six points in Group D, three ahead of Sweden, which would have advanced with a win. The youthful Russians outran the experienced Swedes to qualify for the knockout stage for the rst time since the breakup of the Soviet

Union. For Sweden, it was the rst group stage exit at a major tournament since Euro 2000. Russia coach Guus Hiddink maintained his record of reaching the knockout stage in every international tournament he has coached. He now will take on his home country, which he led to the seminals of the 1998 World Cup.

Spain 2, Greece 1

ing champion to leave the European Championship without scoring a goal, getting a 42nd-minute header from Angelos Charisteas. But Greece was the only team to not earn a point from three matches in Group D. De la Red tied it in the 61st minute with a hard shot that goalkeeper Antonis Nikopolidis got a hand on. Guiza, who led the Spanish league with 27 goals scored this season, then headed in the winner in the 88th off a cross from Sergio Garcia. Both Spain players scored their rst goals for their country, which will face Italy in the quarternals on Sunday in Vienna. The Spaniards played backups almost exclusively Wednesday.

Walker expected to be ready for camp

By Greg Beacham

Sports Brief
Earthquakes 0, Real Salt Lake 0
SALT LAKE CITY Real Salt Lake remained unbeaten at home, but failed to take advantage of a short-handed San Jose Earthquakes squad as the teams played to a scoreless tie. Kyle Beckerman appeared to have given Real Salt Lake (4-5-4) a 1-0 lead in the 71st minute. As the team celebrated, officials decided that Beckerman was in an offside position when he redirected a header from Robbie Findley into the goal. San Joses Jason Hernandez picked up his second yellow card of the game in the 44th minute and the Earthquakes (3-7-2) were forced to play with 10 men for the remainder of the contest.

ALAMEDA The Oakland Raiders expect new receiver Javon Walker to be ready for training camp when he recovers from injuries incurred during a robbery in Las Vegas last weekend. Raiders coach Lane Kifn nally spoke to Walker by phone on Wednesday morning, more than two days after Walker was discovered unconscious and beaten on a back street near the Las Vegas Strip following a night of partying. Walker was released from a hospital after treatment for a concussion and facial injuries. The info that I have is hes going to be ne, Kifn said. Training camp wont be an issue. ...

But until our guys look at him, I dont want to say (the extent of Walkers injuries). Kifn said Walker was scheduled to y to Oakland on Wednesday evening in time to attend the nal session of the Raiders organized team activities on Javon Walker Thursday, though he obviously wont suit up with quarterback JaMarcus Russell and his new teammates. Oakland opens training camp July 25 in Napa. We are aware that Javon Walker was the victim of a robbery, Raiders spokesman Mike Taylor said in a statement. We have been told of the school so hes willing to do whatever it takes to get there. Hes already participated in the Rawlings NorCal World Series where he was one of the top three stars from the Peninsula and is heading to another showcase in Las Vegas next week and one at AT&T Park next month. In the meantime, hell continue to hone his skills with the San Mateo Post 82 American Legion team. A decade ago, playing summer ball was the best way to gain notice. When working for a newspaper in the East Bay, I covered Bishop ODowd of Oakland on consistently. There was a player for the Dragons who already accepted a scholarship to Stanford but after watching him, couldnt gure it out. He was a solid player, but Stanford caliber? The common response I got was, Oh, but you should have seen him during the summer. That player, Jonny Ash, is considered the Houston Astros best minor league prospect at second base. Sortwell said summer ball can help but even that is limited, unless a player comes from a squad known for churning out college players. Post 82 is developing that reputation but Sortwell realizes he has to do more to assure himself of reaching his goal. But the time of depending solely on a players high school career or summer season is over. Its not like that any more, Sortwell said. You have to show yourself out there. Even if a player doesnt like it, showcase events and college camps are now part of the college baseball recruiting landscape. And while college and pro scouts will still show up to watch the latest phenom, there are hundreds of others who just need to be seen by the right person to start their recruiting journey.

that he will make a full recovery in the near future and resume his preparation for the 2008 NFL season. A Las Vegas police spokesman said a large amount of cash and expensive jewelry were taken from Walker, who was photographed earlier in the fateful evening spraying a nightclub crowd with champagne. His agent, Kennard McGuire, said Walker was recovering in a private environment on Wednesday. Walker signed a six-year, $55 million deal with the Raiders after the Denver Broncos released him in February. The 29-year-old former Packers star has participated in some offseason work with Russell, though Kifn said two weeks ago that Walker was a little heavy for workouts.

Continued from page 13
a prestigious high school known for its baseball program, its hard to draw attention unless a player is putting up eye-popping numbers. If you come from a low-key school, you have to go to them, Sortwell said. Nobody gets anything coming from Aragon. Showcases and college camps actually work to the colleges benet as well. In the past, coaches would have to send scouts across the nation to nd the best players. Now, these showcase events round up the best players in a particular area and college coaches and scouts have a chance to see dozens of players in one afternoon. Which can be good and bad for the player, depending how the day goes. Maybe Im not playing my best and Im not at my best and I just showed 60 college coaches that I suck, Sortwell said. A better route might be the college camps themselves. Getting an invite from a college coach to attend one of their camps means a player is on a schools radar, making it a bit easier to get noticed. After all, instead of hundreds players attending a showcase, there may be a few dozen participating at a college camp, giving players a chance to catch the coachs eye without such a cattle-call environment. The ones you really have to go to are the college camps, Sortwell said. If there is a college you really want to go, you go to that (schools) camp. Sortwell is already on the radar of several schools, including Fresno State, San Jose State and Santa Clara University, just to name a few. Right now, Sortwell is in a frame of mind to play at the Division I level, regardless

Olympics (from lowest to highest, American Division, National and Open). Two of the three Payes Performance teams earned spots in the National Division, whereas in the last couple of years they were competing in the American Division. The plan eventually is to have each team make it in the Open Division, which would be a monumental accomplishment. Huan and Rosales envisioned a successful program on the court and off it as well. We always wanted to put out a good program for these kids not only to succeed on the court but to represent our name and region as well, Huan said. Weve brought in a lot of kids who were turned down from middle and top-tier clubs and turned them into kids who are now desired by those same clubs. Earning a bid to the Junior Olympics is no small feat. Club tryouts start in early November, teams are usually assembled by Thanksgiving and the season starts in January. For ve months, teams travel all across the country to play in tournaments, up to four a month. Teams can earn a bid by winning a qualifying tournament, receiving an at-large berth or, in Payes Performances case, through league play. victories that rank third all-time on the PGA Tour, and 14 professional majors that are second only to the record 18 won by Jack Nicklaus. This is the 500th week Woods has been ranked No. 1 in the world. Even in his abbreviated 2008 season, he won ve of seven tournaments worldwide. Dating to the discovery of the torn ACL, Woods won nine of 12 tournaments, including two majors, and never nished lower than fth. While I am obviously disappointed to have to miss the remainder of the season, I have to do the right thing for my long-term health and look forward to returning to competitive golf when my doctors agree that my knee is sufciently healthy, Woods said. My doctors assure me with the proper rehabilitation and training, the knee will be strong and there will be no long-term effects. Woods will miss a major for the rst time in his career the British Open next month at Royal Birkdale and the PGA Championship, where Woods is the two-time defending champion, in August at Oakland Hills in Michigan. Tiger is an enormous attraction, theres no denying that, Royal & Ancient chief executive Peter Dawson said. But the Open Championship has had many exciting nishes which Tiger has not been part of, and Im sure there will be more. Its very sad. Were very sorry that hes succumbed to the injury and he wont be competing in the Open. We hope he has the speediest recovery. Woods also will miss the Ryder Cup in September, meaning the ninth player in the U.S. standings will qualify for the team. second with a two-run double to make it 5-0. Polanco also singled in a run in the fth to help Detroit win its fourth straight series. With Billy Sadler already warming up in the second, Giants manager Bruce Bochy made a mound visit after Guillens double. But Zito stayed in and Bochy got booed on his way back to the dugout. Zitos former pitching coach with the As, Rick Peterson, is looking for work after the New York Mets red him early Tuesday and there is speculation the Giants might try to bring him aboard to guide their $126 million left-hander. Detroit pushed another run across in the fourth


Payes Performance plays in the Northern California Volleyball Association, which consists of 90 to 100 teams. One of the keys to Payes success lies in its massive facilities. It has three courts to practice on, and has free rein to choose the times and dates to use them. A lot of clubs rent out gyms in different cities on different days and is dependent on the facilitys hours, Rosales said. For us, its a little more nite. You dont have to be nomadic. We can spend more one-on-one time with our girls, whether its working on technique or doing conditioning drills. Payes Performance is still the new kid on the block and upstart. But its developed into a place where local volleyball talent can thrive and grow. For some girls getting to the Junior Olympics is great, but theyve come to a point where they want to place for a medal, Rosales said. Now its not being just content to get there but to go for a medal (top three nish). Our goals are to aim higher and higher. Said Huan: Weve pushed and created something good for the community. Its been tough at times, but weve never been one to back down from a challenge. injury rst happened. Woods said he tore the ACL while jogging at home after the British Open last July. He played on, going on a streak that included seven consecutive victories, including Dubai Desert Classic in Europe and his Target World Challenge, an unofcial event. He did not play overseas late last year for the rst time since 2003, hopeful that rest could allow him to play more this year. But the pain intensied through the Masters, where he nished second, and Woods said the cartilage damage developed from the ACL injury. He bypassed surgery on the torn ligament April 15, hopeful that by cleaning out the cartilage he could make it through the year. What he didnt anticipate were the stress fractures as he tried to get ready for the Memorial. The stress fractures that were discovered just prior to the tournament unfortunately prevented me from participating and had a huge impact on the timing for my return, Woods said. I was determined, though, to do everything and anything in my power to play in the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, which is a course that is close to where I grew up and holds many special memories for me. Woods won for the eighth time at the public golf course in San Diego a U.S. Open, a record six times at the Buick Invitational, and a Junior World Championship as a teenager. He called his U.S. Open victory probably the best ever. On Wednesday, he explained why. faced any of the Giants batters, is 5-1 in seven appearances and six starts on the road this year. ... Fred Lewis singled in the fth for San Francisco to give him a career-best nine-game hitting streak. ... San Francisco had its six-game errorless streak snapped. ... Giants RHP Merkin Valdez, sidelined with a strained elbow, liked the news he received from his visit with Angels orthopedist Dr. Lewis Yocum on Tuesday in Anaheim. There is no structural damage in the elbow, which is encouraging considering Valdez missed all of last year following Tommy John surgery. He still needs more rest and rehabilitation before being activated.

The results speak for themselves, as Payes Performance has thrived with top-notch facilities, an excellent coaching staff and a yearning to develop homegrown talent. Top players from the 13s team include outside hitters Helen Gannon and Emma Uhrich, middle blockers McKenna Hurley and Katelyn Doherty, defensive specialists Katie Woods, Amy Farnworth and Amannda Armanini, setters Danielle Dacanay and Emily Lewis and super sub Danielle Peranich. For some of the older players, this wont be the rst time theyll be competing in the Junior Olympics. Whereas in the rst two years Payes Performance was happy to reach the Big Dance, its teams are now looking to make a name for themselves on the national stage. There are three different levels in each age group when it comes to the Junior


Katelyn Doherty is a standout middle blocker for the 13-year-old Payes Performance team.
Coincidentally, Woods had mathematically clinched a spot on the team by winning the U.S. Open. We sent him owers for winning the U.S. Open. Now I wish I had put in a note of condolences, U.S. captain Paul Azinger quipped. But this is not about Tiger and the Ryder Cup. Its about Tiger getting better and his march to history. The majors wont miss Woods nearly as much as the PGA Tour and the networks that televise it especially in the second year of the FedEx Cup, which Woods won in a landslide last year. He still might be leading the points race in August leading to the playoffs. Even with Woods no longer playing the rest of the year, he will keep his spot in the playoff events for which he is eligible. Tiger is our tour, Kenny Perry said from the Travelers Championship, which starts Thursday at TPC River Highlands in Connecticut. When you lose your star player, it denitely hurts. PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said his concern was for Woods health and well being. We wish him the best toward a speedy recovery, he said. Woods is private about his health and personal life, never more so than at the just-completed U.S. Open. He didnt say anything about the torn ACL or the stress fractures, and wouldnt say how he was treating it, only that it was more sore as the week went on. Perhaps the biggest surprise was when the after second baseman Travis Denkers throw to rst on a double-play attempt was high and got past John Bowker for an error. The Giants fell to 1-8 so far this season against the American League. The Giants, who have lost seven of eight at home, got on the board in the second when Denker doubled with one out and later came home on a wild pitch. San Franciscos other run came on an error in the sixth. Polanco is batting .367 (72-for-196) with 31 runs scored, 15 doubles, two home runs and 21 RBIs over his last 47 games dating to April 25.

He went 91 holes on a leg that got worse with each day, finally defeating Rocco Mediate on the 19th hole of a playoff. When I talk about golf, he doesnt count, Mediate said Monday after the playoff. Hes not normal. Woods, 32, did not say when he would have surgery, but he canceled a clinic that was scheduled for Tuesday at Comerica Park in Detroit. Haney said the typical recovery is six to eight months. This will be Woods third surgery in ve years on his left knee. There will be debate whether he rushed back for the U.S. Open, said Mark Steinberg, his agent at IMG. But I dont think there will be any debate that he rushes back from his next surgery. He wont need to. Augusta is in April. And if things go according to plan, hell be able to play an event or two or three. Woods rst went to Haney toward the end of 2002 to overhaul a violent swing that was putting enormous pressure on his left knee. Haney suspects the pain has been increasing, and Woods stopped hitting balls after his rounds at last years British Open. Hes been playing way less than 100 percent for a long, long, time, Haney said. It has limited him a lot in practice. Hes going to come back better than hes ever been. Woods was already plenty good, with 65

He allowed a one-out single to Polanco then walked Carlos Guillen before back-to-back RBI singles by Magglio Ordonez and Miguel Cabrera. Guillen followed Polancos RBI double in the

Home buying practices adjust to high gas prices

By Adrian Sainz

In his hunt for a new home, Demetrius Stroud crunched the numbers to nd out that, with gas prices climbing, moving near an Amtrak station is the best thing for his wallet. Stroud was looking in Elk Grove., Calif. about 85 miles away from his job in the San Francisco Bay Area because homes there are more affordable. But with gas at $4.50 and a car that gets about 22 miles per gallon, Stroud would be pumping $560 a month into his tank. So instead he made an offer on a home near the train station in Davis, which will shave $160 off his commuting costs. I wouldnt even be able to consider doing it without that Amtrak possibility, said Stroud, 45, who also telecommutes one day a week to his job in software quality assurance. Strouds choice represents a fundamental shift in the way more Americans are approaching home buying in this era of ballooning gas prices. Real estate agents, transportation ofcials and industry surveys indicate that home buyers are placing more importance on cutting their gas bills and commute times than they have since the oil shocks of the 1970s. And there are some early indications that homes near urban centers, and subway, train and bus stops are often selling faster and at better prices than those in the distant suburbs. On Wednesday, a survey of 900

There are some early indications that homes near urban centers, and subway, train and bus stops are often selling faster and at better prices than those in the distant suburbs.
Coldwell Banker agents showed a remarkable 96 percent said that rising gas prices were a concern to their clients, and 78 percent said higher fuel costs are increasing their desire for city living. Don Denton, manager of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in the Capitol Hill area of Washington, D.C., said prices are holding in the area and the neighborhood appears to be expanding. We have seen a steady increase in interest in our area over the last several years and it is comparable to how the reaction to the 1970s gas crisis sparked an interest in this area and inside the entire Beltway, Denton said. A grueling commute by car into the city is the main reason why Mark Bulkeley wants to move closer to his job in Tysons Corner, Va., near downtown Washington D.C. He is selling his home in Haymarket, Va., which is 30 miles from work, and has signed a contract on a home in Great Falls, Va., thats just 6 miles from the ofce. My commute is miserable enough that Ive taken to leaving my house at about quarter to ve in the morning to avoid the trafc, said Bulkeley, a 36-year-old wholesale electricity trader. Its kind of brutal. Its routinely an hour, and theres a lot of variability around that. Bulkeley already has a hybrid Honda Civic, but he still calculates a savings of about $100 a month on gas once he moves closer to the city. When we decided that we were going to make a move we basically put a dot in the middle of the map

where my ofce is and said, We are not going to live farther than essentially a 20-minute circle around that, Bulkeley said. Gas prices, which have shot up $1.07 this year, are magnifying demographic trends that show more younger buyers and empty-nest seniors are moving back to urban centers. If gas prices continue their ascent, this could have profound consequences over time on the future development of American cities and suburbs and modes of transportation. Homes in cities and neighborhoods that require long commutes and dont provide enough public transportation alternatives are falling in value more quickly than more central locations, according to a May study by CEOs for Cities, a network of U.S. urban leaders. In Atlanta, agent Mike Wright with Prudential Georgia Realty notes that real estate brokerages within the city perimeter have been selling better than those outside the city, reecting an area trend of people moving closer-in. You can easily draw the conclusion thats trafc or gas-price related, Wright said. Its a decision thats both lifestyle driven and people trying to stay out the car. In response to more riders, some U.S. cities are expanding their mass transit services. The Dallas Area Rapid Transit system, for example, is doubling the miles of light rail it has to 90, said Morgan Lyons, DARTs spokesman. The project has an estimated cost of $4 billion, and two main light rail lines are expected to be completed

Is your house built to last?


How long will your roof last? When will your kitchen appliances need to be replaced? Will your furnace make it through another heating season? Knowing the life expectancy of your homes building components can help you determine how to deal with the inevitable. The National Association of Home Builders together with Bank of America Home Equity recently created a Life Expectancy of Home Components study that outlines the longevity of housing components. What follows are some of the reports ndings and tips for prolonging all your homes parts:

Ask the Careys

Q: I recently had ceramic tile installed on my kitchen oor. The tiles are pavers and are 12 inches by 12 inches. A short while after installation,a crack that is several feet long appeared in the grout. A number of these cracks have appeared, some at right angles to the others.The contractor said the oor was exing but it seems pretty solid to me. Why are the cracks appearing and what can be done? The contractor said that the only solution was to install a supporting beam below the oor to minimize exing and therefore the cracking.This seems to me to be an extreme measure. A: If you were not warned in advance that cracking could result, the contractor was not being as responsible as we think contractors should be to consumers. Unfortunately for you,no law has been broken here. But an experienced contractor who works with ceramic tile is well aware that a substantial substrate is needed to prevent grout cracking when tile is installed over a wood oor. In new construction when tile is used over a wood-frame oor,the strength of the oor in that area is increased and it is usually built about two inches lower than the oors that dont get tile or stone.This makes room for a two-inch-thick layer of mortar and steel rods that adds rigidity and strength. In remodel construction, the oor is reinforced from below with extra piers and-or additional oor framing members. It is wise to add a one inch thick layer of mortar below the tile for even more strength. Unfortunately,this is expensive and usually creates a change in oor levels that is hard to get used to.Without being able to see it, it is difcult for us to determine whether your oor is exing or shifting laterally since both can cause the condition you describe. If your contractor is right, extra supports under the house will reduce exing. However,if your house is shifting laterally other measures may need to be taken. We hate to tell you this,but it might be cheaper to assume that the contractor is right and add the supports.If the condition persists once supports have been installed,contact a soils engineer.


According to the NAHB study you can expect your gas range to last 15 years; clothes dryers and refrigerators should last about 13; microwave ovens and dishwashers 9; and trash compactors about 6 years. Keeping appliances clean will help them operate more efciently. Keeping your refrigerators coils and door gasket clean will make for a better seal, cut down on energy loss and prevent wear and tear on the motor. When it comes to the dishwasher, the more you use it, the longer it is likely to operate. Infrequent use causes gaskets to dry out and results in leaks.

Knowing the life expectancy of your homes building components can help you determine how to deal with the inevitable.
vary dramatically depending upon many factors such as climate, sun exposure, deck construction and nish. According to the NAHB study, a deck has a life expectancy of about 20 years under ideal conditions. We have yet to nd ideal conditions. There are a few very common mistakes that people make when it comes to building and maintaining a deck that are sure to hasten its demise. First, the lowest portion of the deck framing should be no less than 8 inches from the soil to prevent rot and pest damage. Deck boards should never be face nailed or screwed to the framing as this tears the wood ber and acts as an entrance source for water to damage both the decking and framing. Using a hidden deck fastener from below will prevent this condition. Keep the deck clean and add a new coat of nish every three to ve years. or berglass, steel and wood doors will last as long as the house, berglass is the most stable and wont expand and contract like steel or crack like wood. Whatever the material, the best step that you can take to maintain an exterior door is to keep it clean and give it a fresh coat of paint from time to time.

Concrete and masonry

Masonry is one of the most durable components of a home. Chimneys, replaces and brick veneers can last a lifetime, and brick walls have an average life expectancy of more than 100 years. You can extend the life of your replace and chimney by burning only seasoned, dry hardwood. Have a chimneysweep inspect it once annually or after burning a cord of wood, whichever comes rst. Seal brick, concrete and masonry with a high quality concrete and masonry sealer.

Wood, marble, granite and slate are the most durable floor finishes with projected life expectancy of 100 years or more. Although the NAHB study nds that vinyl and linoleum oors will last about 50 and 25 years respectively, we believe that you will grow tired of their appearance and rip them out well before. Average quality carpet is rated to have a life of 8 to 10 years according to the study. When purchasing carpet keep in mind that the better

Some 25.6 percent of the homes resold last month had been foreclosed on sometime in the previous 12 months, up from only 3.3 percent in May last year. In Solano County, where the median home price sank 31 percent to $300,000 compared with the year-ago period, more than half of all resold homes were foreclosed properties. In Contra Costa County, which saw its median home price tumble by nearly 34 percent to $390,500 compared with last year, foreclosed homes accounted for 43.3 percent of all homes resold. In contrast, foreclosures made up only 5.8 percent of resold homes in San Francisco County, where the median price slipped 5.4 percent to $790,000 since May 2007. Six Southern California experienced a similar trend. Nearly 38 percent of all the homes sold in the region last month were in foreclosure at some point during the past 12 months. of debris.

HOMES Low house prices

heat up state sales


LOS ANGELES Foreclosures helped fuel the sharpest decline in California housing prices in at least 20 years last month, and thats attracting an inux of rst-time buyers who had been priced out of the market or were waiting for prices to bottom out. All of a sudden, (homes) are in our price range, said Elizabeth Trezza, a paralegal in Oakland, Calif. Trezza has been on the hunt for a foreclosed property and placed offers on at least six in recent weeks. The 24-year-old made an offer Tuesday on a two-bedroom, two-bath bank-owned home in Oakland listed at $234,000 just below her max spending limit: $250,000. Right now our mortgage would be relatively close to what we pay for in rent, she said.

For California, epicenter of the nations housing boom and bust, the drop in home prices has sparked a home-buying rally thats beginning to reverse more than two years of monthly year-over-year sales declines. While observers are cautious to peg the surge in foreclosure sales a bellwether for a wider turnaround, it suggests some buyers are feeling less skittish about diving back into the market. Inland markets hit hardest by foreclosures and falling prices are now the most likely to post higher sales than last year, said Andrew LePage, a DataQuick analyst. These communities have been attracting rst-time buyers, rst-time move-up buyers and investors. Prices in those markets are now more in line with family incomes, and some buyers feel they are getting better deals, LePage added. cally last 15 to 25 years. Truth is, advancements in efciency can make replacement after 10 to 15 years a smart decision.

LePage added. The statewide median home price peaked at $484,000 in May 2007. DataQuick said a total of 33,024 homes were sold statewide in May, down nearly 11 percent from a year earlier. About 38 percent of the resold homes in May were foreclosed properties. Earlier in the day, Dataquick said the median price of a home in the San Francisco Bay area tumbled 21.7 percent in May to the lowest level in nearly four years. The annual decline drove the median price to $517,000 in the nine-county region. The median price was $660,000 in May 2007 and $510,000 in September 2004. Earlier this week, DataQuick reported the median home price in May plunged 26.7 percent to $370,000 in a six-county region of Southern California. Despite increased sales of foreclosed homes, overall home sales in the San Francisco Bay area notched their slowest pace for any May in

If you have a slate, copper, clay or concrete roof, chances are good that it will last 50 to 100 years.

Using organic fertilizers the right way

By Lee Reich

Suburban brief
Disneyland Dream Home shows Jetsons-like future
ANAHEIM Disneyland has seen the future, and the future is now-ish. For its Innoventions Dream Home that opened Monday, the Happiest Place on Earth combined todays cutting edge technology with a few Jetsons-like flourishes. Many of the 5,000-square-foot homes technologies are practical, such as a virtual bulletin board for the kids schedules and a flat-screen outdoor monitor that gives barbecue instructions. Others are more futuristic: the push of a button changes the outside appearance of the home and a virtual mirror projects accessories, hairstyles and clothes from your closet onto your reflection. The idea of a futuristic home dates back to the Monsanto House of the Future, which stood near the entrance of Disneyland Parks Tomorrowland from 1957 to 1967. Many features of the new dream home were inspired by technology inside the Microsoft Home, a prototyping facility in Redmond, Wash.

Organic fertilizers are all the rage these days, and with good reason. They can provide plants with a long, slow feed, and their manufacture reuses waste products while putting less demand on natural resources. Many gardeners, though, make the mistake of approaching the use of organic fertilizers in the same way as they might use a chemical fertilizer. For instance, the other day a gardening expert on the radio was touting the benefits of guano, or bat droppings. He was right about guano being rich in nutrients. It has almost 20 percent nitrogen in a form that can be taken up quickly by plants. And guano surely is natural: Its merely scooped out of caves where bats hang out, then bagged up for sale. The problem is that guano is not much different in its effects on plants and soil from any quick-acting, chemical fertilizer. The same could be said for blood meal, poultry manure, and other concentrated, quick-acting albeit organic fertilizers.

Bulk up
The thing missing from all chemical fertilizers and from concentrated organic fertilizers is bulky organic matter. Yes, plants benefit from bulk in their diet, just as we do. Like the bulk in our diet, bulks benefits to plants are indirect. These benefits include getting soils to hold more air and water, making nutrients already in the soil more available to plants, and helping plants fight off certain diseases. Bulky organic material that is good for plants is familiar stuff. Raw organic materials include straw, autumn leaves, sawdust, hay, and manures. When these raw, organic materials decompose, they become such things as compost, leaf mold, old manure, and humus all of them somewhat richer in plant nutrients than the original organic

Organic fertilizers can provide plants with a long, slow feed, and their manufacture reuses waste products while putting less demand on natural resources.
materials that went into them. Note that most of the bulk associated with manures comes from the sawdust, straw, or whatever other material was used for bedding for the animal. What comes out a chicken, for example, has little organic material and much of its benefit to plants comes from the wood shavings or straw that is scooped up along with the poop from the floor of the chicken house. In fact, the more concentrated any organic fertilizer is, the less bulky organic material it offers. The kids in T-shirts and shorts attending Camp Rock in Disneys new TV movie have the woodsy look down, but if they were attending Camp Southwoods in New Yorks Adirondack Mountains, theyd have to bring their Hannah Montana pillows and Transformers throw blankets. At Island Lake Camp in Pennsylvania, owner Matt Stoltz expects an influx of electronic gadgets, such as cell phones and handheld games, even though they arent allowed. Those trend-driven items change more than the wardrobe, which is still rooted in tees and hooded sweatshirts. Both Stoltz and Camp Southwoods owner Scott Ralls note that Soffe athletic shorts are a favorite item with their campers.

Too much of a good thing

This is not to say that plant growth cannot suffer from the opposite extreme, that of applying too much raw bulk and not enough actual nutrients. Raw organic materials low in nutrients, such as sawdust and straw, can cause temporary nutrient deciencies if mixed into the soil. More concentrated fertilizers do have their uses. With houseplants, for example, which have no room in or on their pots for bulky organic materials. And quick-acting, concentrated fertilizers are needed for emergency feeding of neglected plants.

Viewwith Michelle Obama

By Ann Sanner

WASHINGTON Michelle Obama said Wednesday she was touched that first lady Laura Bush came to her defense after she was harshly criticized by Republicans for her February comment that for the first time in her adult life she was proud of the United States. Obama, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, later clarified her remarks, saying she had always been proud of her country and was particularly proud to see so many people involved in the political process. In an interview last week with ABC, Bush said, I think she probably meant Im more proud, you know, is what she really meant. She said comments in a campaign are closely watched and can be misconstrued. Michelle Obama told the women of ABCs The View that she sent Bush a note for her remarks. It took me a while to write it. Its like, how do I address her? she said. I said dear madam first lady. Obama did not elaborate on the contents of the letter because she said Bush might not have received it yet. But I was touched by it, Michelle Obama said. And thats what I like about Laura Bush. You know, just calm, rational approach to these issues. And you know, Im taking some cues. I mean, theres a balance. Theres a reason why people like her. Its because she doesnt, sort of, you know, fuel the fire. At a campaign stop in February, Michelle Obama told an audience in Milwaukee: For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my

country. Not just because Barack is doing well, but I think people are hungry for change. Cindy McCain, wife of Republican presidential contender John McCain, later sought to capitalize on the remark, saying I have, and always will be, proud of my country. Michelle Obama, a guest host on the popular talk show, talked about the presidential campaign and helped the shows regular hosts interview actor Matthew Broderick. She walked onto the set arms linked with Barbara Walters, one of the shows co-hosts. She joked with the other cast members Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd, giving them fist bumps as she joined them at the table. Wait, she told them after sitting down. I have to be greeted properly. Fist bump, please. Earlier this month, a Fox News analyst suggested that her affectionate onstage knuckle bump with her husband, on the night he locked up the Democratic presidential nomination, might have been a terrorists fist jab. It is now my signature bump, Michelle Obama told The View cohosts. But let me tell you, Im not that hip. I got this from the young staff. Thats the new high-five.

Seinfelds lawyers see humor, not defamation

By Larry Neumeister

NEW YORK Jerry Seinfeld claims a cookbook author is cooking up some fancy semantics by calling him an actor rather than a comedian to minimize the humor in statements she says defamed her. Lawyers for Seinfeld say Missy Chase Lapines lawyers resorted to the switch in words to describe Seinfeld when several weeks ago they led a rewritten version of her lawsuit against him and his wife in U.S. District Court in Manhattan. Jerry Seinfeld is an enormously wealthy and well-known actor, Lapines revised lawsuit said. The original had called him a comedian. Lapine, the author of The Sneaky

Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids Favorite Meals, accused Seinfelds wife, Jessica Seinfeld, of plagiarizing her cookbook when in Jerry Seinfeld October she published her own, titled: Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food. During an appearance on CBS Late Show with David Letterman, Jerry Seinfeld said Lapine was accusing his wife of vegetable plagiarism and compared her to the three-name killers of John Lennon and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

If you read history, many of the threename people do become assassins, Seinfeld said. Mark David Chapman. And you know, James Earl Ray. So thats my concern. His lawyers said in court papers led late Tuesday: No reasonable viewer could have thought that Seinfeld really meant that Lapine ... might become an assassin simply because she has three names. Lapines lawyers have said Seinfeld, best known for the sitcom Seinfeld, used the Letterman appearance to begin a malicious, premeditated and knowingly false and defamatory attack on her. The issues of law will be decided by the court, and we are condent of the outcome, Lapine lawyer Howard B. Miller said Wednesday.

Celebrity psychic loses lawsuit over ex-Elvis home

MEMPHIS, Tenn. Celebrity psychic Uri Geller and two partners have lost a federal lawsuit claiming the former owners of Elvis Presleys pre-Graceland house breached an eBay contract to sell the Memphis home. Geller, who gained fame in the 1970s for his alleged power to bend spoons and other objects with his mind, and his partners bid $905,100 for the ranch-style home in a 2006 auction by owners Cindy Hazen and Mike Freeman. But the deal fell apart. Hazen said Gellers group altered terms of the real estate deal so that it was unacceptable. Geller said Hazen and Freeman reneged on the deal in order to sell it for more to Nashville record producer Mike Curb, who bought the house for $1 million. On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Jon McCalla ruled that the eBay auction was more of an advertising vehicle than a binding sale. Even if it was a contract, the judge said, Geller and his partners breached it when they altered the closing terms after the sale. Im relieved that this is all over, Hazen

told the Memphis newspaper The Commercial Appeal. Presley bought the four-bedroom, 3,000square-foot house in 1956 with his early song royalties. The singer, his parents and grandmother lived there for 13 months before throngs of fans forced them to move to more secluded Graceland in 1957. Curb plans to let Rhodes College use the home as part of a new Mike Curb Music Institute.

tion, nabbed the gnome for a free Tshirt. Maybe aliens doused the pintsized garden creatures during an out of this world experience. Or maybe the paint is residual from one of the gnomes legendary midnight parties. No one knows for certain, but Rafello is sure of at least one thing. More good came out of it than bad, Rafello said. He received six gift gnomes and met with numerous neighbors. For a man who never set out to be the King of Gnomes, Rafello accepts the title with a slight grimace. He knows anything that brings the neighborhood together is a good thing.

once hand-painted. Rafello is nding it hard to remove the pile of paint, because simple paint thinner will not do the trick. It was bizarre, really, Rafello said. It seems like some kind of mean prank, theyre still withholding ve or six gnomes. Who is responsible for the dwarfs return from gnomemans land? There was no ransom note. No snickering teenagers seen leaving the scene. No anti-gnome neighbors. Perhaps a gang persuaded by the rhetoric of www.freethegnomes.com, a Web site advocating for gnome libera-

basketball. Orozco pulled himself over the wall using a halogen light set below the 15-foot minimum and slipped through a three-foot hole previously cut in the perimeter fence. Reports issued since also highlighted the inattention of two supervisors, a lack of security knowledge and no clear escape protocol as other issues aiding the escape. Cho pleaded no contest to aiding and abetting while Patino maintains a not guilty plea in the same incident. He is set for jury trial Sept. 8 on similar charges plus an allegation

of acting to further the Sureo gang. A $10,000 reward by the Sheriffs Ofce is still pending for information leading to the arrest of Orozco, once the youngest San Mateo County murder defendant charged as an adult. Orozco, a Sureo gang member, was 14 in July 2005 when charged with murdering a 21-yearold Redwood City man alleged to have ties to a rival gang. Faustino Ayala, 24, the alleged driver of the vehicle from which Orozco shot, is currently on trial for murder. The jury is deliberating and recently sent out a note indicating its difculty in reaching a verdict.

Peninsula reghters traveled to El Salvador last year to donate equipment and familiarize locals on how to use tools including hoses and an old Jaws of Life.Fireghters will make a trip to Central America again next month.

Continued from page 1
It is the first time multiple Central American countries will train together. It could lay the groundwork for similar annual training, Greene said. The goodwill trip is the second of its kind. This time, however, the training will consist of multiple countries instead of just El Salvador. Local firefighters ventured to El Salvador last year on the same sort

of mission. It began after Greenes wife traveled to El Salvador to visit a daughter of a friend injured in a car accident. She noticed the outdated equipment and thought the Central American country could use updated gear. Local departments donated equipment that was past its warranty life. Local, state and federal regulation also put limits on how long department may use certain gear. We gave an old Jaws of Life. We refurbished it and sent it down there, but it has to be followed up with training, Greene said. The group of firefighters is getting shifts covered and paying out

of their pocket for the trip. It is organized through the Redwood City Firefighters Create a Smile Foundation, formed in 1993 after firefighters decided they wanted to be able to help people after theyve experienced a traumatic situation. The specific situation that forced the creation of the foundation happened when a 4-year-old girl was kidnapped, traumatized, beaten and thrown from a car in the parking lot of a storage facility on Hansen Street in Redwood City. She had been abandoned and wasnt discovered until the next morning, according to the organizations Web site.
