Illinois city marks birthday
with mega bratwurst
BELLEVILLE, Ill. Residents in
the southwest Illinois city of
Belleville celebrated its 200th birth-
day with a 200-foot bratwurst, com-
plete with a 200-foot bun.
Larry Schubert and his team from
Schuberts Packing Co. in Millstadt
used about 120 pounds of meat to make
the brat, which volunteers grilled
Sunday, the final day of the citys
bicentennial celebration, the
Belleville News-Democrat reported.
Afew days earlier, a saloon hosted a
half-size practice run for grilling the
Lindenwood University and
Southwestern Illinois College ath-
letes helped march the bun down a
main thoroughfare, making a wide turn
in a parking lot to nish the delivery.
The athletes also helped roll the
bratwurst onto a 200-foot metal
grilling trough.
Event organizers decided not to pay
a fee to have the bratwurst record
attempt recognized by the World
Record Academy.
The event raised $1,600 for local
food pantries.
Man breaks into
Vermont police station
SHELBURNE, Vt. Police say a
man who thought he was breaking
into a Vermont school actually got
into the local police station.
WFFF-TVreports the man, identied
as 59-year-old John Dettor of
Washington, D.C., told police he
wanted a warm place to stay.
Police say late last week Dettor used
a trafc cone to break the glass to get
into the police station in Shelburne,
thinking it was a school.
He was arrested on suspicion of
unlawful mischief and ended up in the
Chittenden Correctional Center. It
wasnt immediately known if the man
has a lawyer.
The Kuro taste: Peppery
tang and hint of squid ink
TOKYO The rst Kuro, or black,
burger had a black bun and sauce. Last
years edition, the Kuro Ninja, added a
slice of (non-black) bacon to the sig-
nature black components. Now Burger
King Japan is going black on black.
The fast-food chain added black
cheese and darkened the other ingredi-
ents in the special burger duo added to
menus Friday. Marketing Manager
Kana Ienega said Burger King Japan
wants people to try the burger and nd
it tasty even though it may look unap-
petizing at rst.
The Kuro Pearl is simple with a
black pepper beef patty covered with
Chaliapin (onion and soy) sauce
infused with squid ink. Its black
cheese and buns are colored with bam-
boo charcoal. The Kuro Diamond is
the same burger, topped with lettuce,
tomatoes, onions, and mayonnaise.
Peppery. If you can get past the
shocking color, its not bad. The
black pepper in the patty hits you at
the first bite and complements the
tangy sauce, with its hint of squid ink.
The Kuro Diamond is juicier, with
extra sauce and mayonnaise. But if
youre expecting a totally different
taste just because of the color, it might
fall below expectations.
Eating one in Tokyos bustling
Shinjuku district, Kuah Kia Wei, a 14-
year-old student from Malaysia, says,
I like it because it has a very interest-
ing taste to it and its nothing that
Ive tasted before.
Bernice Chua, a 25-year-old fashion
designer and illustrator from
Singapore, says, the best part is actu-
ally the sauce, its not really about the
buns because you dont really taste the
bamboo charcoal inside, but I think
the sauce really makes up for it.
Julien Tirode, a 37-year-old event
planner from France, says, Im a lit-
tle disappointed because to me, it has
no special taste or anything. Yes, the
burger is black, the cheese is black,
theres little black stuff in the meat,
but (other than that) that, theres noth-
ing special to me.
The burgers are available in Japan
until November. The Kuro Pearl retails
for 480 yen ($4.39) and the Kuro
Diamond for 690 yen ($6.31).

SAN FRANCISCO Crews scrambled
Monday to extend control lines around a
massive Northern California wildre threat-
ening thousands of homes as they braced for
strong, erratic winds similar to when the
blaze doubled in size a week ago.
The King Fire east of Sacramento had
burned through 137 square miles, an
increase of about 9 square miles overnight
despite crews making some progress Sunday
in cooler and slightly wet conditions.
But expected warmer temperatures, low
humidity and winds of up to 30 mph could
increase re activity, state re spokesman
Capt. Tom Piranio said.
This could set up some potential re
growth similar to what we experienced when
it grew exponentially last week, Piranio
said. We are working very aggressively to
maintain the contingency lines.
Last week, the blaze grew to 111 square
miles overnight when winds surged to more
than 25 mph, the state forestry and re pro-
tection department reported. More than
5,000 reghters from as far as Florida
and Alaska have worked around the clock
to increase the re containment from 10 to
18 percent by Monday.
However, a red flag warning has been
issued for Tuesday as gusty winds could
reach up to 35 mph by Wednesday, said
Holly Osbourne, a National Weather Service
meteorologist in Sacramento.
Its denitely going to pose a challenge
to the control lines the reghters have cre-
ated, said Osbourne, adding that theres
also a slight chance for rain Thursday.
The wildre which started on Sept. 13
continues to threaten about 21,000 struc-
tures, more than half of them homes. It has
destroyed 10 homes and 22 outbuildings in
the White Meadows area of Pollock Pines,
according to preliminary gures released
About 100 evacuees were allowed to return
home, but some 2,700 remain under evacua-
tion orders, state re spokesman Daniel
Berlant said. The fire also continued to
threaten a key University of California,
Berkeley research station that is home to
scores of experiments on trees, plants and
other wildlife.
On Sunday, poor air quality forced a last-
minute cancellation of two popular Ironman
events in nearby Lake Tahoe, disappointing
about 3,000 athletes who signed up for the
competition, Ironman operations manager
Keats McGonigal said.
A man charged with starting the fire,
Wayne Allen Huntsman, 37, pleaded not
guilty to arson Friday. He remains in the El
Dorado County jail on $10 million bail.

U.S. existing home
sales fall in August
By Josh Boak
Americans bought homes in
August, as investors retreated
from real estate and rst-time buy-
ers remained scarce.
Sales of existing homes fell 1.8
percent to a seasonally adjusted
annual rate of 5.05 million, the
National Association of Realtors
said Monday. That snaps a four-
month streak of gains. August
sales are down from a July rate of
5.14 million, a gure that was
revised slightly downward.
Much of the decline came from
the exodus of investors, who had
been buying properties in the
aftermath of the housing bust and
recession. Investors accounted for
just 12 percent of August purchas-
es, compared to 17 percent a year
Overall, the pace of home
sales has dropped 5. 3 percent
The August figures show that
real estate recovery has depended
largely on investors and all-cash
sales, instead of families looking
to purchasing a house.
It is apparent that much of the
juice in the existing-home sales
market remains centered in all-
cash purchases by speculative
buyers, said Joshua Shapiro,
chief U.S. economist at the con-
sulting rm MFR.
The rebound from the housing
bust that triggered the recession
has been painfully slow. The share
of Americans who own homes has
trended downward over the course
of the ve year recovery, as more
Americans are becoming renters.
The ownership rate fell to 64.7
percent through the middle of this
year, down from a peak of 69.2
percent toward the end of 2004,
according to the Census Bureau.
Sales were curbed by winter
storms earlier in the year. They
began to accelerate through the
summer as mortgage rates eased
back from 52-week highs. But the
combination of rising home
prices last year and sluggish wage
growth has limited sales.
Rising prices through much of
2013 and weak income growth
priced out many would-be buyers.
Only 29 percent of purchases in
August came from rst-time buy-
ers, well below the historical aver-
age of 40 percent.
The median sales price has risen
4.8 percent over the past 12
months to $219,800, but it
slipped slightly in August com-
pared to prices in July and June.
Sales of existing homes contin-
ue to lag last years pace of 5.1

Man charged with
murder at gym seeks
to hire own attorney
ASouth San Francisco man accused of beating a man to
death at a gym was charged with murder Monday and
announced at arraignment he wished to
hire his own attorney.
Kenneth Osako, 46, has been given a
week to find an attorney before entering
a plea against allegations he killed a
fellow gym member Wednesday night,
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.
Osako is accused of using a solid steel
bar, normally used to lift weights, to
attack Diego Galindo, a 43-year-old San
Bruno resident, at the Bally Tot al
Fitness gym at 180 El Camino Real in South San
Francisco around 9:30 p.m.
According to police, Osako struck Galindo in the head
several times, dropped the steel bar and then left the
scene. Galindo was taken to San Francisco General
Hospital where he died Thursday due to his injuries,
according to police.
Osako, a plumber, knew Galindo through the gym,
although investigators are still determining to what
extent they had a relationship, Wagstaffe said.
There were several witnesses of the crime and Wagstaffe
said investigators are continuing to conduct interviews to
determine a potential catalyst for the murder.
Osako is also charged with being in possession of brass
knuckles found in the trunk of his car when he was arrest-
ed Thursday morning by South San Francisco police and a
special agent from the Department of Homeland Security,
Wagstaffe said.
Although its rare one would request to hire their own
attorney instead of accepting a court appointed one in
defending against a costly murder charge, Osako will have
until Monday to do so, Wagstaffe said.
Osako has no criminal record in San Mateo County and
is being held without bail, Wagstaffe said.

China, U.S., India push
world carbon emissions up
WASHINGTON Spurred chiefly by
China, the United States and India, the world
spewed far more carbon pollution into the
air last year than ever before, scientists
announced Sunday as world leaders gather to
discuss how to reduce heat-trapping gases.
The world pumped an estimated 39.8 bil-
lion tons (36.1 billion metric tons) of car-
bon dioxide into the air last year by burning
coal, oil and gas. That is 778 million tons
(706 metric tons) or 2.3 percent more than
the previous year.
Its in the wrong direction, said Glen
Peters, a Norwegian scientist who was part
of the Global Carbon Project international
team that tracks and calculates global emis-
sions every year.
Their results were published Sunday in

A new study released Monday found that

The study compared ocean surface temper-
atures from 1900 to 2012 to surface air
pressure, a stand-in for wind measurements,
and found a close match.

regarding predatory lending businesses
and chose to adopt a nonbinding resolu-
tion that supported further regulation of
payday lending, lending transactions in
which a customer gives the lender a post-
dated check in exchange for cash from the
lender. The city fears there may be an over-
concentration of these types of businesses
in South San Francisco and is working to
limit payday lenders.
Others contend that putting restrictions
on payday lenders is only a short-term
solution to the problem of people who
cant get loans from a traditional bank
needing to borrow from somewhere.
The Planning Commission took the first
step toward making changes by approving
amendments to a zoning ordinance to
change the way the city defines certain
bank and financial institution uses,
revise the zoning districts where alterna-
tive financial uses are allowed and
strengthen the performance standards for
check cashing businesses, payday lenders,
pawnbrokers and similar uses. This
includes the restriction of these types of
businesses being within 1,000 feet of one
another and limiting them to 2,500 feet in
size. Limiting these businesses operation
hours from 7 a.m.-7 p.m., was also added
as a restriction to payday lenders.
For most of us, the predatory lending
has to be watched for consumer protec-
tion, said Planning Commissioner Rick
There are currently four businesses in the
city that operate as payday lenders or
something similar: SSF Check Cashing,
J&J Check Cashing, Dolex Dollar Express
and Fast Money. Three of these businesses
are located downtown. Fast Money is
located on El Camino Real, just south of
Westborough Boulevard. Additionally,
there are other alternative loan businesses
in operation downtown, including Apoyo
Financiero at 481 Grand Ave. and South
City Pawn at 337 Grand Ave. The amend-
ments expand the restrictions on check
cashing to encompass alternative loans
and pawnbrokers, according to a staff
The customers check includes the loan
amount as well as any interest and fees that
are charged by the payday lender. The
lender then cashes the customers check
on the agreed-upon date. Payday loans
tend to be small, short-term, single-pay-
ment loans with very high interest rates; a
typical two-week loan can carry an inter-
est rate of up to 460 percent when adjusted
annually. These businesses are often
labeled as predatory lenders because their
clients have few alternative finance
options and the interest rates that accom-
pany their loans can be extraordinarily
high, according to a staff report.
Theyre predators; thats how I view
them, said Vice Mayor Rich Garbarino.
The rates they have to pay are ridiculous.
Youre talking about people who just cant
afford that rate; what dont you buy to pay
them off. I dont want to see any more of
these people coming to town; Im just
tired of people being taken advantage of.
Its sad; its really sad.
In 2012, the county passed an ordinance
which applies to the unincorporated areas
and prohibits payday lenders from being
within a 1,000-foot radius of one another
and within 500 feet of residences, pawn-
shops, liquor stores and any bank or cred-
it union.
Others, like Paul Soter, outside general
counsel for California Financial Service
Providers Association, dont think this is
the right solution for dealing with payday
loan issues. He did note, however, the
amendment drafters do mean well.
I think they (the city) have not fully
grappled with the underlying philosophi-
cal question of what their goal is and what
the implications of that are, he said. If
the goal is to prevent high price, small-
dollar credit, this will somewhat achieve
that. If the purpose is to make less
expensive credit available, dont do that
by limiting credit. Borrowers dont take
out payday loans to annoy the City
Council, they do it because they have
needs. Attacking this from the supply
angle is one way to do it. Its not efficient
or fruitful.
The problem is people need this money
and they dont have an alternative and this
restriction will only make it less conven-
ient for South San Francisco residents,
Soter said.
Banks have run screaming from this
(type of) business, he said. You can say
what theyre doing is a bad thing, but
theyre making some credit available. I
think this is a symptom of a societys
problem. What South City could do is
increase the minimum wage and raise taxes
to use that to provide social services.
Theres a lot of much more difficult solu-
tions; this is a short-term feel-good solu-
Borrowing, however, is most often
cyclical and the majority of those who use
the service end up taking out 10 loans,
Keith Ogden, anti-predatory lending staff
attorney at Community Legal Services in
East Palo Alto, previously said. Borrowers
on average ultimately pay $800 for a $300
loan, he said. State and federal bank regu-
lations prevent cities from setting interest
rate maximums, Ogden said. Instead, local
jurisdictions have turned to land use poli-
cies to restrict hours of operation, light-
ing requirements, window coverage and
where lenders can be located.
Other cities that regulate payday lending
are Redwood City, Pacifica and East Palo
Alto. San Mateo also recently explored
the possibly of adding more restrictions
to payday lenders.
The amendments now go to the City
Council for approval.

U.S. ofcials said the airstrikes began
around 8:30 p.m. EDT, and were con-
ducted by the U.S., Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi
Arabia, Jordan and the United Arab
Emirates. The rst wave of strikes n-
ished about 90 minutes later, but the
operation was expected to continue for
several more hours, according to one
U.S. ofcial, who spoke on condition of
anonymity because he was not author-
ized to speak publicly by name about an
ongoing mission.
At a conference on Sept. 11 with
Secretary of State John Kerry, key Arab
allies promised they would do their
share to ght the Islamic State mili-
tants. The Obama administration, which
at a NATO meeting in Wales earlier this
month also got commitments from
European allies as well as Canada and
Australia, has insisted that the ght
against the Islamic State militants could
not be the United States ght alone.
Because the military operation was
ongoing, no details could be provided
yet, said Rear Adm. John Kirby, the
Pentagons press secretary. He said the
military made the decision to strike
early Monday. A White House ofcial
said Obama was being updated.
The strikes were carried out by manned
Air Force and Navy aircraft, and the
Tomahawk missiles were launched from
U.S. ships in the northern Persian Gulf
and the Red Sea. The aircraft carrier USS
George H.W. Bush is in the Gulf.
Some of the airstrikes were against
Islamic State groups self-declared capi-
tal in Raqqa in northeastern Syria.
Military ofcials have said the U.S.
would target militants command and
control centers, re-supply facilities,
training camps and other key logistical
Syrian activists reported several
airstrikes on militant targets in Raqqa.
One Raqqa-based activist, speaking on
condition of anonymity, said the
airstrikes lit the night sky over the city,
and reported a power cut that lasted for
two hours.
An anti-militant media collective
called Raqqa is being silently slaugh-
tered said among the targets were
Islamic State buildings used as the
groups headquarters, and the Brigade
93, a Syrian army base that the mili-
tants recently seized. Other airstrikes
targeted the town of Tabqa and Tel Abyad
in Raqqa province, it said. Their claims
could not be independently veried.
We will be prepared to strike ISILtar-
gets in Syria that degrade ISILs capabil-
ities, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey,
chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
told senators last week, using one of the
acronyms for the Islamic State group.
This wont look like a shock-and-awe
campaign, because thats simply not
how ISIL is organized, but it will be a
persistent and sustainable campaign.

Not an idyllic city anymore
In San Mateo, across Concar Drive from
the proposed Station Park Green develop-
ment there is yet another planned devel-
opment of four-story office buildings and
more. When the city planners were asked,
why? they replied, we need the taxes.
And there goes another major Peninsula
city down a vortex of honking horns,
delaying traffic jams, car fumes and
angry, frustrated people. Not an idyllic
city anymore. My kids are done with the
Peninsula; they wont come back, some-
one told me recently.

Surefire way to
protect your bank account
There is one sure way to protect your-
self that Associated Press reporter Joseph
Pisani didnt mention in his article 5
ways to protect yourself from data breach-
es (in the Sept. 22 edition of the Daily
Journal). Its called cash.
For those not yet of a certain age, it is
those little rectangular pieces of paper
with numbers on them that you can get at
any bank. Im pretty sure there havent
been any data breaches with them. If
you lose it or it is stolen from you, you
are only out a few bucks and you havent
risked a stranger having a direct pipeline
to your bank account. The main downside
is probably having to help the clerk

Taxes and
wealth distribution
Do we really know how to tax people
fairly and in such a way that the tax rev-
enue supports the United States, its infra-
structure, people and future?
The Tax Foundation published some fac-
tual numbers on Jan. 14, 2014. It said
that the top 1 percent of taxpayers pay
more in federal income taxes than the
bottom 90 percent. But that since the
early 1980s, the share of taxes paid by
the bottom 90 percent has steadily
declined. In fact in 1980, the bottom 90
percent of taxpayers paid 50.72 percent
of income taxes whereas in 2011 (the
most recent year the data is available),
the bottom 90 percent paid 31.74 percent
of taxes. On the flip side, they write, the
top 1 percent paid 19.05 percent of taxes
in 1980 and now pay 35.06 percent of
taxes. Clearly we are doing some wrong
for 20 years or more so it might not the
party in power that is the problem. Even
more frightening is the thought that just
a few businesses have been feeding the
tax revenue through share sales from IPOs
and stock market gains, this is and has
been the golden goose, the only golden
goose in town, for the last 20 years.
So what would happen if the top 10 per-
cent would stop investing in the stock
market because taxation makes it no
longer profitable enough, and they just
put their money under the mattress? I
shudder to think how quickly this house
of cards will collapse.

Repeating mistakes
Patricia Gray, in her letter Military
Madness (in the Sept. 20 edition of the
Daily Journal) wants all military action
to end, saying that war is not ever the
answer. Is she kidding? You cant stop ter-
rorists by being nice to them. She would
have to convince Hamas to stop terrorism
against Israel, and ISIS to stop its
extremist terrorism, Syria and other coun-
tries to stop their civil wars.
It is unfortunate that there will be some
deaths in a war against terrorism, but that
is a better cause than to be killed by the
terrorists. Neville Chamberlain tried to
get peace through the appeasement of
Hitler, but instead that encouraged more
aggression by the Nazis. Either learn
from past mistakes, or else repeat them.

Transit-oriented development
It is with interest that I read Mike
Browns Sept. 11 letter to the editor. I
went to the Metropolitan Transportation
Commission website and looked under
Planning and found Federal Congestion
Management Process under Adopted
Plans. Upon reviewing this, on page 15,
number five lists the Transit Oriented
Development (TOD) Study.
There is a link that shows a briefing
book for city planners and managers. The
whole point of TOD is to encourage walk-
ing, biking and taking mass transit.
TODs specifically state that they cannot
always accommodate abundant parking
and garages for each resident. Parking is
provided for those willing to pay for it,
making the most for limited parking sup-
pl y. They suggest to share parking at dif-
ferent times of day or days of the week
and sharing cars. Parking will be restrict-
ed in TOD (so how will retailers fare with
that setup and possibly share parking
space with office workers). Then it states
to implement residential permit parking
to establish or maintain preferential
access to street parking for local resi-
dents. Now, are these residents of TOD
considered local residents? If so, they
will be parking in the surrounding neigh-
borhood. Now, just how sustainable is
According to Mike, our local govern-
ments were strongarmed by the MTC
(withholding transportation funds). Our
local governments may also be part of
the ICLEI group now called Local
Government for Sustainability.

Caltrain bike
cars: The other
side of the story
By Michael R. Oberg
fter reading all of the latest letters
from commuters with bikes request-
ing that Caltrain increase bike car
capacity, Ive noticed a real important fact
that has been neglected,
and that is, each and
every one of the bicycle
riding commuters think
they are entitled to main-
tain their lifestyle, con-
venience and benet s,
and that everyone else
should pay for their
lifestyle. They think that
the local taxpayers,
Caltrain, the state and federal governments,
all with taxpayers money, should pay for
their convenience of taking along their
bicycles onto commute trains. They think
that everyone else should pay for the mil-
lions of dollars it costs to convert the com-
mute cars to bike cars. They think that
everyone else should pay for the benet of
them not having to spend their own money
on buying or using another car for commut-
ing. They think that everyone else should
pay for them saving money on gas, park-
ing, maintenance, tires and insurance.
Oh yes, all the bicycle commuters will say
that they are all protecting the environ-
ment, going green, taking more cars off the
highways, not burning fossil fuels and get-
ting good exercise. Yeah, so are all of the
commuters without bicycles doing the exact
same thing, but, they dont expect everyone
else to pay for their lifestyle and conven-
Beside the enormous cost of converting
commuter cars to bike cars, there is the huge
loss of revenue that each bike car is costing
Caltrain and the taxpayers. Each commuter
car is originally congured to carry from 75-
90 riders per car but, after being converted
to a bike car, now those same cars can only
carry 25-30 riders, plus their non-paying
bicycles. This generates a net loss of 66
percent of potential revenue on each car, in
each train, multiplied by the number of bike
cars and the number commuter trains with
bike cars that are run each day, each week,
all year long. Thats a lot of lost revenue,
just to keep the commuters with bicycles
happy so they can continue to enjoy their
There is a better way to accomplish every-
thing the bicycle commuters want to
achieve and benet from, plus, it doesnt
cost the taxpayers and other commuters any
more money. Its simple, and this idea has
been previously mentioned before in this
newspaper. All bicycle commuters should be
required to purchase their own second bicy-
cle, with their own money. All they have to
do is use one bicycle from home to the
Caltrain station, lock up their bike in a bike
locker and get on a commuter train, like
everyone else. Then, when they arrive at
their destination station, they simply
unlock their second bicycle from its locker
and bike to work. It would only cost the
bicycle commuters the cost of a second bike
and the cost of renting two bike lockers.
There is no waste of taxpayers money and
no huge loss of potential revenue.
I have nothing against bicycle riding
commuters. Im all for saving the environ-
ment. Im all for thinking outside the box.
Im all for living a less stressful lifestyle.
But, these bicycle riding commuters should
do this on their own dime, not everyone
elses .

Big movers

NEW YORK Worries about the
outlook for growth in China and a
slide in the price of oil pushed the
stock market to its biggest loss in
almost seven weeks Monday.
Investors are nervous about China
following a run of soft economic data
that suggests growth in the worlds
second-largest economy is slowing.
The worries about China helped push
down the price of oil. That in turn
weighed on energy stocks.
The stock market has struggled to
gain traction this month as investors
have weighed signs of an improving
economy in the U.S. against evidence
of slowing growth in both Europe and
Weve got China weighing down
on stocks, said Kristina Hooper, U.S.
investment strategist at Allianz
Global Investors. The lack of trans-
parency there always creates greater
The Standard & Poors 500 index
dropped 16.11 points, or 0.8 percent,
to 1,994.29. The loss was the biggest
one-day decline for the index since
Aug. 5. The index is down 0.5 percent
this month.
The Dow Jones industrial average
fell 107.06 points, or 0.6 percent, to
17, 172. 68. The Nasdaq composite
dropped 52.10 points, or 1.1 percent,
to 4,527.69.
The losses were broad, and all 10
industry sectors that make up the S&P
500 declined. Energy stocks were the
second-biggest decliners, slumping
1.4 percent as the price of oil fell.
Companies that rely the most on con-
sumer spending, such as entertain-
ment and media conglomerates and
retailers, fell the most.
The price of oil dropped on concerns
that Libyas production is picking up
at a time when global economic indi-
cators point to weaker demand from
countries including China.
Benchmark U.S. oil fell 89 cents to
$91.52 a barrel. Analysts say U.S. oil
could test the $90 mark sometime this
Smaller companies were also among
the biggest decliners as investors
shunned the riskier parts of the mar-
The Russell 2000, an index which
tracks small-company stocks, fell 1.5
percent, more than other indexes. The
Russell has dropped 3 percent so far
this year, compared with gains of 7.9
percent for the S&P 500 and 3.6 per-
cent for the Dow.
Some analysts say investors should
regard any pullback in stock prices as
an opportunity to add to their hold-
ings. Recent reports on the manufac-
turing and the service industries have
been strong. Hiring is picking up and
ination remains tame.
The fundamentals in the U.S. have
been coming in strong, beyond
expectations, said Doug Cote, chief
market strategist at Voya Investment
Management. Its a modest pullback.
If anything I would take it as an
opportunity to build positions.
On Monday, stocks were also hurt
by a report showed that fewer
Americans bought homes in August as
investors retreated from real estate and
rst-time buyers remained scarce.
If the trend continues it could dent
consumers condence, said Allianzs
It really speaks to much of middle-
class America. The largest component
of their net worth is their home, she
said. It could really put a damper on
consumer spending and consumer sen-
The National Association of
Realtors said sales of existing homes
fell 1.8 percent to a seasonally adjust-
ed annual rate of 5.05 million. That
followed four months of gains. August
sales fell from a July rate of 5.14 mil-
lion, a gure that was revised slightly
The report weighed on homebuild-
ing stocks. Hovnanian fell 14 cents,
or 3.6 percent, to $3.80 and Beazer
Homes fell 52 cents, or 2.8 percent, to

Stocks drop as China, oil weigh on markets

SAN FRANCISCO Yahoo may be
losing some appeal on Wall Street now
that U.S. investors can buy directly
into Alibaba.
Yahoos stock fell Monday as
investors grappled with uncertainty
about CEO Marissa Mayers efforts to
turn around the struggling Silicon
Valley company. The sell-off came
even though Yahoo reaped more than
$9 billion last week from selling some
of its stake in Alibaba, as the Chinese
e-commerce company held a record-set-
ting initial public offering of stock.
Yahoo has promised to return at least
half of the after-tax proceeds to share-
holders likely through stock buy-
But some investors arent waiting,
now that theyre able to buy Alibaba
shares directly, according to Brian
Wieser, an Internet stocks analyst at
Pivotal Research.
Before the Alibaba IPO, Yahoo was
one of the few ways U.S. investors
could tap into the growth of e-com-
merce in the worlds most populous
country. That was because of Yahoos
large stake in the Chinese company.
Yahoos stock has risen more than 30
percent over the past year, largely on
the strength of investor excitement
about Alibabas booming business.
On the second day of public trading
for Alibaba, Yahoo shares fell more
than 5 percent to close Monday at
Although Mayer has not said what
shell do with $3 billion or so of the
Alibaba proceeds not going to share-
holders, analysts believe she could use
that for acquisitions to help Yahoo
revive its struggling advertising busi-
ness and expand its online video pro-
Yet many investors lack optimism
about Mayers chances of regaining
some of the advertising business that
Yahoo lost in recent years to newer
rivals like Google and Facebook.
Yahoo was an early pioneer in the
lucrative market of online advertising,
but it hasnt been able to keep up with
rivals fast-growing audiences and
sophisticated tools for selling ads tar-
geted to users likes and interests.
My expectations for Yahoos core
business are pretty muted, Wieser
said. There should be pretty tepid
growth, if any, in the near term.
That didnt stop Wieser and a handful
of other analysts from raising their
price targets for Yahoos stock. Yahoo,
which acquired its stake in Alibaba
back in 2005, still holds more than
380 million shares in Alibaba, worth
more than $34 billion at Mondays
closing price.
The remaining stake in Alibaba rais-
es the possibility of a big, future pay-
day for Yahoo investors if the company
sells more of its shares in the future.
Those Alibaba shares also represent
the bulk of Yahoos stock market value
of $38.5 billion, suggesting that
investors are putting little value in the
companys core business.
Since she was hired from Google two
years ago, Mayer has overhauled
Yahoos online services and hired some
big names like former CBS newscaster
Katie Couric to anchor Yahoos online
news operation. Mayer has also begun
to modernize Yahoos online advertis-
ing programs. But ad sales have seen
little change in recent quarters, while
other major online companies have
seen signicant advertising growth.
Mayer could use some of the new
Alibaba cash to continue a buying
spree that has seen Yahoo acquire
dozens of smaller companies since she
became CEO. While many of those
deals were aimed at acquiring technolo-
gy or talent to help improve Yahoos
online consumer offerings, Mayer has
more recently turned her attention to
the companys advertising business
and its video programming.
Investors fret Yahoos future, stock dips
Apple: 10 million
iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sold
NEWYORK Apple says it sold more than 10 mil-
lion iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models, a record for a new
model, in the three days after the phones went on sale.

DETROIT The death toll from
crashes involving General Motors
small cars with faulty ignition
switches is at least 21.
Attorney Kenneth Feinberg, who
was hired by the company to compen-
sate victims, said Monday in an
Internet posting that he received 143
death claims as of Friday, and 21 of
those have been deemed eligible for
Aspokeswoman said the rest of the
claims are under review and not all
will be eligible. The death toll rose
from a week ago, when Feinberg had
determined 19 claims would get pay-
The website also said that Feinberg
received 532 injury claims as of
Friday. Of those, 16 are eligible for
compensation thus far. The others are
still being reviewed.
The defective switches can unex-
pectedly move to the accessory or
off positions, shutting down the
engine and knocking out power steer-
ing and brakes. With engines shut off,
people can lose control of their cars
and crash. If that happens, the air
bags wont inflate.
GM has admitted knowing about the
problem for more than a decade in
small cars such as the Chevrolet
Cobalt. Yet it didnt begin recalling
the 2.6 million small cars until
For months, the company said at
least 13 people died in crashes linked
to the faulty switches, but GM
acknowledged that the death toll
would go higher. Some lawmakers
have estimated that its close to 100.
Feinberg has said GM has not limit-
ed the total amount he can pay in com-
pensation. GM has estimated the cost
of compensating victims at $400 mil-
lion, but says it could rise to $600
A Feinberg spokeswoman said
Monday that his office is in the
process of sending out letters telling
people how much money he is offer-
ing. Those filing claims can reject
Feinbergs offer and seek compensa-
tion through lawsuits.

Susac singled home the go-ahead run in the
13th inning, and the San Francisco Giants

Monday night to climb within 3 1/2 games
of the NL West lead.
Susac singled to left field off Kevin

with two innings of relief, and Hunter
Strickland pitched the 13th to earn his rst

Woodside senior David Teu posted the highest single-game rushing total of his three-year
varsity career, erupting for 225 yards last Friday in the Wildcats 42-15 win over Sequoia.
By Terry Bernal
David Teu didnt stop to celebrate much
after a career night last Friday as his
Woodside football team clobbered rival
Sequoia 42-15.
Not only did the senior running back run
for a career-high 225 yards, Teus efforts
were the catalyst in the Wildcats rst win of
the season, and the rst win in the career of
new head coach Justin Andrews.
The epic ground total wasnt enough for
Teu though. In evaluating his performance,
Teu was critical of himself for missing some
holes on particular runs and for needing to
work on his blocking.
I felt like I could have done better, Teu
said. I think of it, Ive only got 24 hours
(to celebrate). Once that 24 hours is over, I
go on to the next game and forget about the
other game.
Its nearly impossible for Teu to improve
on his workload though. As a team,
Woodside ran the ball 23 times. Teu tabbed
22 of those runs, averaging 10.2 yards per
carry while totaling three touchdowns in the
process. It was also the rst time in his
three-year varsity career he has reached the
200-yard plateau. In doing so, he surpassed
1,500 career yards as a varsity back.
Because of his career effort, Teu has been
named the San Mateo Daily Journal Athlete
of the Week.
Even though Teu wont brag on himself,
his coach sure does.
He just has this relentless approach,
Andrews said. He has the reputation of
never getting tired. Hes really fast and hes
got good vision.
Fast yes. Teu is and always has been.
Ever since he started playing Pop Warner
football with the Menlo-Atherton Vikings,
his speed has been a game-changer. He ini-
tially played linebacker in his rst season
with the Vikings but he was in the offensive
backeld by years end. And he has been a
weapon as a running back ever since.
I was always a pretty fast kid, Teu said.
Known as Memo, not David, by his fam-
ily, Teu dedicates himself to contact sports

SANTA CLARA The San Francisco
49ers nd themselves in a familiar position
having lost two straight games to fall to 1-
2 after three games for the second straight
Its the way they got to this point that is
so frustrating to the team.
For the second straight week, the Niners
blew a second-half lead and gave a game
away in losing 23-14 to the Arizona
Cardinals on Sunday. After being done in by
turnovers in a Week 2
loss to Chicago, it was
penalties that did San
Francisco in this week.
It leaves the Niners
looking up in the stand-
ings as they already trail
Arizona by two games
and Seattle by one in the
tough NFC West heading
into Sundays home
game against undefeated Philadelphia.
We need to get it fixed Sunday at 1
oclock, coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday.
Thats the challenge for our ballclub.
Weve been in this position before where
there is an ebb and a ow to the season.
Were in it now. Thats the great challenge
for our football team and I have great con-
dence that well attack it.
The Niners responded to the slow start
last year by winning their next ve games
as they made it all the way to the NFC title
game for the third straight year.
If they are going to have a similar turn-
around this year they will need to clean up
their play. The Niners were called for nine
penalties for 107 yards on Sunday and have
a league-worst 36 penalties overall through
three games.
The penalty barrage by the 49ers started
midway through the third quarter when line-
backer Dan Skuta was called for unnecessary
roughness for hitting sliding quarterback
Drew Stanton one play before Patrick Willis
was called for a disputed roughing the pass-
er penalty.

Chicago Bears took advantage of early mis-
takes by the sloppy New York Jets.
Then they had to hold their breath before
hanging on for a 27-19 victory Monday
Jay Cutler threw two touchdown passes to
Martellus Bennett and Ryan Mundy returned
an interception 45 yards for a score. Cutler
nished 23 of 38 for 225 yards and Alshon
Jeffery caught eight passes for 105 yards for
the Bears, who got a 45-yard eld goal from
Robbie Gould to make it an eight-point
game with 3:10 remaining.
The Jets (1-2) had one last opportunity to
tie, getting into Bears territory on Geno
Smiths 51-yard pass to Greg Salas. But
Jeremy Kerley was out of bounds when he
caught Smiths desperation fourth-down
heave from the Bears 9.
Cutler took a knee three times to seal the
victory for the Bears (2-1).
Smith was 26 of 43 for 316 yards and a
touchdown with two interceptions and
nearly had a few others. Kerley nished with
seven catches for 81 yards, and almost came
up with a diving grab off a tipped pass in the
end zone on the nal drive.
The Jets lost wide receiver Eric Decker in
the rst half to a hamstring injury after he
was questionable for the game with tight-
ness in the hamstring.
The Bears went up 14-0 just over 5 min-
utes into the game.
On New Yorks second play from scrim-
mage, Smith didnt see Mundy lurking in
the at as he oated a screen pass to Chris
Johnson. Mundy stepped in front of the
toss and ran untouched into the end zone for
a 45-yard score.
It was the sixth-year veterans third career
interception, and rst score.
After the Jets stopped the Bears on three
plays on their rst offensive series, rookie
Jalen Saunders dropped Patrick ODonnells
punt at his 40 and it was recovered by
Ahmad Dixon. Cutler threw deep down the
right sideline to Jeffery one play later, and
cornerback Darrin Walls was called for pass
interference to put the ball at the Jets 7.
Three plays later, Cutler rolled right and
found Bennett in the back of the end zone to
make it 14-0 and get the MetLife Stadium
crowd booing.
The Jets got on the scoreboard on their
next possession, capping an 11-play, 55-
drive with Nick Folks 43-yard eld goal.
Chicago answered with a 15-play, 79-yard
drive helped by cornerback Antonio Allens
holding penalty on a third-down incomple-
tion by Cutler. Goulds 24-yard eld goal
gave the Bears a 17-3 lead 66 seconds into
the second quarter.
The Jets got their next series off to a good
start with a 43-yard completion to rookie
tight end Jace Amaro, but they stalled in the
red zone again, settling for a 28-yard eld

Avideo review reversed a call late in the
half on which the Jets might have taken the
lead. Cutler was sacked by David Harris and
lost the ball, but was declared down by con-
tact. A review showed Cutler had fumbled,
but Demario Davis return to the end zone
was negated because the whistle had blown.
The Jets then went three-and-out.
Chicago opened the second half aggres-
sively, marching 80 yards on six plays and
capping the drive with Bennetts 13-yard

Maddy vs. Madi as Pac-12 volleyball begins tonight
Maddy Kerr
psyched about
new-look Bears
By Terry Bernal
Cals Maddy Kerr has never been the tallest
player on the volleyball court.
Once upon a time, as a club volleyball star
with San Diegos Wave when she was small-
er than she is now, Kerr has a short-lived
career as an outside hitter. Now, the 5-7
sophomore has found a home as a libero for
the Golden Bears.
With Cal opening Pac-12 play Tuesday at
Maples Pavilion against rival Stanford
the No. 1 ranked team in the nation the
Golden Bears enter as an extreme underdog.
They also enter with a lot to prove. On a ros-
ter of 19 players, eight are freshmen, while
Kerr is one of four sophomores.
We arent expected to do well just because
were so young and new, Kerr said. I think
were a little bit underrated, and I think we
can denitely surprise some people. I know
the talent is there. Its completely obvious
we have a lot of talented girls. Its just
whether we put it out there.
Last years Cal team, which advanced to
the postseason, was an entirely different
makeup. The Bears were hoping to catch
lightning in a bottle before graduating out-
side hitter Adrienne Gehan and setter Joan
Caloiaro. After defeating North Carolina in
the opening round of the playoffs for head
coach Rich Fellers 600th career win the
Bears were eliminated by Wisconsin, a team
which went on to reach the nals before
falling to national champion Penn State.
It was really fun winning a tournament
game, Kerr said. Thats just something you
dream about. It was tough seeing Wisconsin
really early. We kind of got a bad draw with
that one.
Cal was contending with a slew of injuries
heading into postseason play though. Kerr
was among the aficted. And during the off-
season while her father Steve was in the
midst of being hired as the head coach of the
Golden State Warriors Kerr was resting an
injured shoulder which cost her an opportu-
nity to play in most of the games during
Cals summer exhibition tour of Europe.
Kerr returned to full volleyball activities
with the start of preseason double-days in
August though. With her return, the new cast
of characters surrounding her on the court
has quickly impressed.
Its totally different. Were super young,
especially our outsides, Kerr said. Its
going really well. Theyre getting better by
the day. Its nice to know Im going to have
them for the next three years and theyre just
going to keep getting better.
With newcomers Christine Alftin
(Woodside) and Ashten Smith-Gooden
emerging as two of the most promising
freshmen outside hitters in the Pac-12, jun-
ior Christina Higgins still boasts the teams
most intimidating kill shot.
We need her to do well, Kerr said. Shes
a really crucial part of our offense. And we
love getting her the ball.
And Kerr said shes happy Higgins is on
her side. This much shes learned from prac-
ticing against the prolic outside hitter.
Digging her at practice is tough, Kerr said.
Its a little painful. It hurts sometimes.
Kerrs fellow sophomore Alyssa Jensen
has been a godsend at the setter position.
Replacing graduated Joan Caloiaro the
cousin of three-time Olympic beach volley-
ball gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings
Jensen has handled the transition as seam-
lessly as can be expected. She currently
ranks fth among Pac-12 setters with 10.73
assists per set.

Stanford setter Madi Bugg may be one of
the only volleyball players in the Pac-12
with her own personalized theme song.
Last season, when her Cardinal teammate
Jordan Burgess was asked about Bugg hav-
ing one of the coolest names in the game,
Burgess, without hesitation, broke into the
Madi Bugg! Madi Bugg! song.
Everyone always says Madi Bugg, like
one word, Bugg said.
Of course, Bugg is not the only one in
town with her rst name. The Cardinals
archrival Cal Golden Bears against whom
Stanford opens Pac-12 play Tuesday night
at Maples Pavilion have sophomore
libero Maddy Kerr in the mix.
And with Madi being short for Madison
she was named after the mermaid por-
trayed by Daryl Hannah in the Tom Hanks
movie Splash there is also Giants
pitcher Madison Bumgarner, who is from
the same home state of North Carolina as
As the song states though, there is only
one Madi Bugg! Madi Bugg!
I obviously know Maddy from Cal from
playing her and stuff, but most of my team
calls me Bugg or some variation of that,
Bugg said. So, I feel, sports-wise, Im
much more Bugg than Madi.
Buggs uniqueness transcends the volley-
ball court, as she was recognized as one of
the sports elite by garnering Pac-12 Setter
of the Year honors as a sophomore last sea-
son. Now, the junior and her Stanford team-
mates are on a mission. Currently ranked
No. 1 in the nation, it doesnt take a song to
suggest what that mission is. But the
Cardinals grueling ve-set win over reign-
ing national champion Penn State on Sept.
5 was a major step in the right direction.
I dont think the Penn State game was a
pretty game, Bugg said. I think there were
a lot of nerves, certainly on our side, prob-
ably on their side too. I think it was an
ugly game technique-wise, but it was really
a gut-it-out, find-a-way-to-win kind of
game. To win that so early in the season
means a lot.

shape for football season, he said.
The strategy seems to be paying off. In
Woodsides rst game of the season, a 42-
28 loss to Dublin, Teu ran for 94 yards and
tabbed three touchdowns.
With six touchdowns on the year, Teu is
currently tied for tops in the Peninsula
Athletic League along with Hillsdales
James Hollon and San Mateos Wi l son
Filikitonga with 42 points on the sea-
son. Hollon and Filikitonga each amassed
their respective totals over the course of
three games. However, Teu played in just
two games as Woodside had a Week 2 bye.
Teu gives all the credit for his outstanding
start to his teammates though.
Its my linemen, the quarterback, just
the whole offensive team, Teu said. If
they didnt execute their [plays], I wouldnt
have been able to score or get so many
When it comes to workload though,
theres no denying Teu is in a class by him-
self in the Woodside ranks. And thats just
the way he likes it.
I feel like thats going to be every
game, Teu said. Thats what I love to do.
Just run the ball.

Chase DelRosso made six catches for 182

the Bears first victory of the season.
Pete Lavorato has long contended Burr-
Kirven is the best player hes ever coached.
At 6-1, 205 pounds, Burr-Kirven has been
clocked at 4.5 in the 40-yard dash and is
one of the most punishing tacklers and
runners in the Bay Area. He nished
with 204 tackles, six sacks, four intercep-
tions, in addition to 13 touchdowns, in 15
games last season.
Burr-Kirven, a three-year varsity player,
said he drew light attention from college
coaches after his sophomore year most-
ly Division II and Division III schools.
His junior year, however, he put himself on
the map. Following an outstanding regular
season, Burr-Kirven took his game to
another level in the playoffs especially
against El Cerrito in the Division III
Northern California championship game,
where he rushed for 161 yards and three
touchdowns on 15 carries, while also shut-
ting down a potent Gauchos offense that
featured a number of Division I recruits dur-
ing a 42-7 SHP rout.
Burr-Kirven said the ood of calls from
college coaches began soon thereafter.
After El Camino, [the recruiting
process] blew up, almost immediately,
Burr-Kirven said. December, I really start-
ed talking heavily (to recruiters).
And just to prove his performance
against El Camino was no uke, Burr-
Kirven nished with double-digit tackles
in the Gators 27-15 loss to Corona Del
Mar in the Division III state title game.
During the spring track season, however,
Burr-Kirven, a sprinter, suffered what was
initially diagnosed as an upper calf strain.
After resting and rehabbing the injury for
several months, it was not getting better.
Another visit to the doctor and more tests
revealed it wasnt his calf but his Achilles
tendon that was strained. Because the diag-
nosis came so late in the summer, Burr-
Kirven was shut down from football prac-
tice for rest and rehab.
Its frustrating, said Burr-Kirven, who
recently got back into the gym to work on
strengthening the tendon and is still on
track to be ready for Peninsula Athletic
League opener Oct. 17 against ve-time
reigning PAL champ Terra Nova.
Just as frustrating was the fact that Burr-
Kirven noticed a downtick in the recruiting
process. Washington, he said, never
wavered in its commitment to him.
[The recruiting process after the injury]
denitely changed, Burr-Kirven said. Its
nice to know [Washington still] wanted
me. I couldnt be happier.
Even without Burr-Kirven, SHP is still
off to a 3-0 start this season, although it
hasnt been easy. The defense, which
allowed 20 or more points twice in 15
games last season, gave up 20 in a 33-20
win over Leland in Week 1 and 21 to
Salinas Friday.
Getting Burr-Kirven back can only
strengthen the Gators defense and could
provide the spark they need if they hope to
go deep into the playoffs again this year.
Burr-Kirven, however, has a much sim-
pler goal in mind right now.
I just want to get back on the eld,
Burr-Kirven said.

Super Bowl to be lit by LEDs
SYRACUSE, N.Y. When the Super
Bowl kicks off in February at
University of Phoenix Stadium,
theres one thing the NFL wont have
to worry about: an extended blackout.
Ephesus Lighting of Syracuse, New
York, has just completed installation
of LED lighting at the venue, site of
the 2015 Super Bowl. The rst game
played under the new lights was
Sunday, when the Cardinals hosted the
San Francisco 49ers.
So far, so good.
Fantastic! Peter Sullivan, regional
vice president and general manager of
the University of Phoenix Stadium,
said Monday. They were fantastic on
a variety of levels. These lights are
rated for super slow-motion, so the
clarity and the level of light and the
type of light is phenomenal.
Ephesus chief executive ofcer Amy
Casper says its the rst NFL venue to
illuminate a playing surface exclusive-
ly with LED lighting. Sullivan said he
had already elded calls from another
NFL team and a Major League Baseball
Only 312 Ephesus stadium xtures
were installed in the University of
Phoenix Stadium. They will replace
more than 780 metal halide xtures,
which have not yet been removed, and
carry a 10-year warranty. According to
the company, the new lights will use
just 310,000 watts of energy. The sys-
tem it replaces needs 1.24 million
watts, which translates to a 75% reduc-
tion in overall energy consumption.

By Janie McCauley
OAKLAND Jeff Samardzija has waited
for another chance to pitch in the playoffs,
and he is enjoying every part of being in a
pennant race again.
Hes doing his part to extend Oaklands
season into October, too.
Samardzija tossed seven strong innings
and received some rare run support, and the
Athletics kept hold of the top AL wild-card
spot by beating the AL West champion Los
Angeles Angels 8-4 Monday night.
The As moved one game ahead of Kansas
City for the rst wild card.
This last months been fun for me. Its a
new situation for me, and something Ive
been asking for for a long time, Samardzija
said. I got in this situation and I want to
take advantage of it. Opportunities arent
guaranteed and they dont come around too
often, so you dont want to waste them.
Geovany Soto hit a two-run single to
highlight a six-run rst inning as the As
chased C.J. Wilson after just two outs for
the second-shortest start of his career.
Stephen Vogt added a two-run single in the
Albert Pujols hit a
three-run homer in the
eighth for Los Angeles,
giving him 1,602 RBIs
for 33rd on the career
Samardzija (5-5) beat
the Angels for the rst
time in three career starts
and won for the rst time
in ve starts since a victory at Houston on
Aug. 25.
Samardzija struck out three and didnt
walk a batter while working at least seven
innings for the sixth straight start.
Hes been terric, and really emotional,
Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. You get
that kind of lift when you play behind him
knowing hes so into it.
When Samardzija has pitched this year,
his teams the Cubs and As have been
shut out six times and held to one run or
fewer 10 times.
The early run support sure helped this
time. Some snazzy defense, too.
Josh Donaldson stopped a sharp grounder
by Chris Iannetta that ipped up off his
glove, and the All-Star third baseman made
a barehanded catch and threw to rst to end
the seventh. Samardzija walked off shaking
his head in disbelief.
I think he was bored and wanted to make
things interesting, Samardzija said.
Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia made
it clear before the game that he wants his
team to treat the remaining games with the
same urgency even though the Angels
clinched their rst division title since 2009
last week.
I think its important to play and keep
your edge, he said. Naturally, these games
have bearing on all the teams.
Among his four free passes, Wilson (13-
10) allowed bases-loaded walks to Derek
Norris and Nate Freiman in the rst that put
the As ahead. Soto then singled up the mid-
dle to make it 4-1.
If youre missing your spots all over the
place, its a mechanical thing, Wilson
Before Sotos single, Oakland was hitless
in 18 plate appearances with the bases
loaded since Sept. 9.
Wilson, the rst of three straight south-
paws scheduled to start in this series, had
his three-start winning streak snapped. His
only shorter start was one-third of an
inning on May 11, 2012, at Texas.
Thats a rough one for C.J., Scioscia
said. Weve looked at C.J. from every
angle possible. Hes prepared, he knows
what hes trying to do, he has terric stuff.
At times it works and hes on top of the
game. Sometimes the games on top of him
and we saw that tonight.
Oakland scored eight or more runs in con-
secutive games for the rst time since July
23-24 against Houston.
The As hold a 9-8 lead in the season
series, dropping the Angels to 1-6 at the

Sundays game after four innings with a
bruised left foot, and catcher Derek Norris

Sonny Gray (13-9, 3.28) looks to snap a
ve-start winless stretch with what would be
just his second victory in 11 starts since a
5-0 July that earned him AL pitcher of the
month honors.
As down Angels to maintain top wild card spot
Jeff Samardzija
crossed each other up on Blancos
routine y. Both players were con-
verging toward center field to
make a play on the ball.
Kemp raced over and appeared to
call him off, but Puig seemed inde-
cisive and got in the way of the
ball, which dropped. Kemp and
Puig returned to their positions
and looked at each other from a
Blanco homered on a 3-2 count
leading off the
game to give
the Giants the
lead in front of
53,500, the
biggest crowd
in the majors
this season.
Puig was 0 for
4 with a strike-
out and got hit
by a pitch. Kemp was hitless in
ve at-bats with two strikeouts.
Notes: RHP Tim Hudson (hip)
threw a bullpen session and is
scheduled to start Wednesday, but
could be replaced by RHP Tim
Lincecum depending on how he
feels. ... OF Michael Morse
(strained left oblique) had an MRI
in San Francisco but had not
received the results. ... OF Angel
Pagan (inflamed nerve in lower
back) missed his third straight
game and there was no timetable
given for his return.
Madison Bumgarner (18-9, 2.91
ERA) takes the mound with 11
career wins against the Dodgers,
the second-most of any active
pitcher against them. The Giants
have won each of his last six
starts. The left-handers 18 wins
are the most by a Giants pitcher
since Shawn Estes had 19 in 1997.

Braves re GM Wren
ATLANTA For nearly a quar-
ter-century, the Atlanta Braves
have been all about stability.
That changed Monday.
In their rst major off-the-eld
ring since 1990, the Braves dis-
missed general manager Frank
Wren less than 24 hours after
being eliminated from the NL
playoff race.
The move came with a week
remaining in the regular season.
Former Cleveland and Texas gen-
eral manager John Hart will serve
as Wrens interim replacement.
It was time, team President
John Schuerholz said. It was time
for the organizations well-
For the Braves, it was the most
jarring change of direction since
manager Russ Nixon was red 65
games into the 1990 season. He
was succeeded by Bobby Cox,
who remained in that job until his
retirement in 2010. Schuerholz
was the general manager for 17
seasons before moving up to pres-
ident in 2007, handing over the
GM job to his hand-picked succes-
sor, Wren.

Cardinals defender, backing San
Francisco up to the 21.
A clipping call on Jonathan
Martin moved the Niners back 15
more yards and the drive ended
with no points when Tommy Kelly
blocked Phil Dawsons 45-yard
eld goal attempt.
Willis and Chris Culliver got
called for personal fouls on
Arizonas next drive and a pass
interference by Chris Cook on
third down late in the game helped
set up the game-sealing score.
San Francisco has been outscored
52-3 in the second half this season
and 31-0 in the fourth quarter.
The frustration boiled over into
the postgame locker room where
Boldin did criticize the ofcials
and running back Frank Gore was
too upset to nish an interview.
Theres definitely frustration
and not feeling good after a loss,
Harbaugh said. But the mindset
has to be, going forward, to x.
You push against something until
its upright. Thats a process that
our team uses. I have total belief in
everybody associated with our

everybody involved.

The early-season victory was bit-
tersweet revenge for the Cardinal,
who last year were eliminated from
the postseason and summarily had
their season ended with a loss to
Penn State in an NCAA Elite 8
matchup. The Nittany Lions went on
to defeat a Cinderella Wisconsin
team for their sixth all-time national
Not that Bugg was all too
I was bitter the whole time, Bugg
said. I was so bitter watching it.
Stanford is poised to make anoth-
er postseason run though. Off to a
10-0 undefeated start heading into
Pac-12 play, the Cardinal have
defeated ve ranked teams thus far,
including an Aug. 31 sweep at then
No. 7 ranked Nebraska in the sec-
ond game of the season.
It wasnt just the three-set victory
that left Bugg glowing though. With
Nebraskas Devaney Sports Center
being one of the biggest volleyball
hubs in the nation, the game was
played in front of 8,562 fans in
Playing at Nebraska is something
I want for every volleyball player to
experience. It was amazing, Bugg
said. Their fans are incredible. And
dealing with that environment so
early in the season and with how well
we played in that game, it gave us a lot
of condence going into the season.
The Cardinal have a lot to be con-
dent about. Stanford has one of the
deepest attacking arsenals in the Pac-
12. Bugg currently ranks second in
the conference with an 11.81 per set
assists average. And the surere mid-
dle blocker tandem of freshman
Merete Lutz and junior Inky Ajanaku
rank the top two among conference
attackers in hitting percentage.
We talk a lot about running our
middles because, in my opinion, our
middles are the best in the country,
Bugg said. I think it helps our out-
sides a lot to run the middles so
much, so by running Inky, I free up
[Burgess so she] plays better. I just
have a lot of weapons.
While defensive specialist Kyle
Gilbert has been a digging machine,
ranking at the top among Pac-12
players with 4.33 digs per set,
Burgess has been a six-rotation force
for the Cardinal.
I think [Burgess] is one of the
most natural passers Ive played
with, Bugg said.
Burgess and Bugg have known
each other half their lives. Both jun-
iors, the two competed against one
another for years on the club volley-
ball circuit while concurrently play-
ing together during high school for
the U.S. Youth National team.
Current Stanford teammate Brittany
Howard also played along side them
with the U.S. team.
Theres only one Madi Bugg
though. Raised by a mother who was
an elite middle blocker at the
University of Tennessee, Bugg is a
volleyball lifer. She likens her
upbringing to that of Stanford assis-
tant coachs newborn daughter, who
is already a daily xture around
Maples Pavilion.
I was that kid, Bugg said.
Continued from page 13
She had a year to watch and
learn from all the best Pac-12 set-
ters, Kerr said. Shes denitely
risen to the challenge.
If any one team is going to give
Stanford a run for its money at the
middle blocker position though
the Cardinal currently boast the
two top shooting middles in the
Pac-12 in Merete Lutz and Inky
Ajanaku Cal, between 6-3 junior
Lillian Schonewise and 6-5 junior
Lara Vukasovic, looks to be that
worthy adversary.
Cal enters its Pac-12 opener with
an 8-2 record while riding a three-
game winning streak.
And in many ways, the 5-7 Kerr
personies the guts and guile of
this years Cal squad.
Were not the biggest team.
Were not really physical, Kerr
said. So, were going to have to
be really scrappy on defense and be
really disciplined in blocking.
Were really trying to make that
what were about more than any-
thing. Were denitely not there
yet but were getting better. Were
kind of hoping thats what denes
us this year.

Poles have
long been a
staple of
s m o k y
s t r i p
clubs, but
the women
scaling and
swinging from
them in Las Vegas
earlier this month
werent doing it for dol-
lar bills.
Many of the attendees at the
3rd Annual Pole Expo are taking
the lead of expo founder Fawnia
Dietrich and refining their
slinky craft as a workout activi-
t y.
Most people that pole dance
in the studios are everyday
women, not strippers, said
Dietrich, who got her start as a
stripper but has since launched a
Las Vegas studio offering fit-

Hines is no stranger to real estate along
the Peninsula near State Route 92 having
sold eight office buildings totaling
250,000 square feet in Foster City to Gilead
Sciences for about $91 million earlier in
The Centre is also less than two miles
from Hines proposed redevelopment of its
property at 1830 S. Delaware St. and 470
Concar Drive. Hines hopes to break ground
by the end of the year in turning the current
TeleCenter appliance store and former
Dennys Restaurant into 292,400 square
feet of ofce space near the Hayward Park
Caltrain station.
All of the San Mateo properties are in an
extremely attractive location along the
Peninsula, both centered between Silicon
Valley and San Francisco and close to State
Route 92 and Highway 101, said Hines
Senior Managing Director Cameron
From a Bay Area locational perspective,
we think its great to be central like that and
theres growing companies that have been
in San Mateo and Foster City and continue
to want to be there and to grow there,
Falconer said. Its offering competitive
growth to those from the north and the
The Centre is currently just 86 percent
leased to tenants, which include California
Society of CPAs, Camico Mutual Insurance
Company, Nexant and SugarSync, Inc.,
according to Hines.
After co-funding the acquisition, Hines
will serve as the on-site property manager
and seek to maximize the available space,
Falconer said.
We think the location, the oor plates,
the quality of the product, will appeal to a
good, wide variety of tenants and it can be
offered at a competitive rate, Falconer
said. We believe that the market demand is
strong and getting stronger. So our intent
is to lease it up and continue to offer high
quality management.
Hines and Angelo are not seeking to rede-
velop the property, however, they will
reinvest into the site and rents could pro-
portionately increase, Falconer said.
Well certainly have some strategic cap-
ital investment in the assets, but its not a
redevelopment opportunity, its a solid
acquisition, own and lease for us, Falconer
said. For the current tenants, our intention
is to maintain [the property] and provide
quality service and have them stay.
Although the exact price of the property
was unconrmed, Hines and Angelo paid a
minimum of $321 per square foot of ofce
space and the city of San Mateo will receive
a share of the value. The city will earn a
minimum of $350,000 in one-time proper-
ty transfer tax and an increase in its annual
collection. San Mateo has become a desir-
able locale for ofce space as evidenced by
two major sales this year alone.
The 200,000-square-foot Tower Plaza at
2121 S. El Camino Real recently sold for
$41.7 million, a stark increase from 2011
when it sold for just $15.5 million. In less
that three years, its value bumped from $75
to $208 per square foot.
Century Centre I and II, two mid-size tow-
ers totaling 276,551 square feet of ofce
space near State Route 92 and Fashion
Island Boulevard in San Mateo, also sold
for a near $100 million in April.
Approximately 30 percent of the citys
budget is derived from property taxes and in
2007 the city took in a total of $10.3 mil-
lion, San Mateos Finance Director Dave
Culver said. However, that number drasti-
cally decreased to about $3.3 million just
two years later, Culver said.
Were a very desirable location, so its
great were seeing the economy improve
like that, Culver said. Theres good and
bad to this. Its great to see these sales
occur and us receiving one-time property
transfer tax, but it can be a negative if we
rely too much on this happening every year
at this level.
Hines certainly sees San Mateo as a prof-
itable city to invest in and looks forward to
maintaining a presence near the key transit
corridors, Falconer said.
We are pleased to add San Mateo Centre
to our Bay Area portfolio, Falconer wrote
in press release. Given the quality of this
location, the nearby amenities and the solid
market fundamentals in San Mateo, we
believe this is a strategic acquisition and
will provide an option to new tenants seek-
ing a cost-effective alternative to San
Francisco and Silicon Valley.

WASHINGTON Its time for u vaccine
again and while its important for the whole
family, this year health ofcials have some
different advice for different ages: Certain
kids should opt for the ouchless nasal spray.
Seniors, expect to get a new kind of pneumo-
nia shot along with that u jab.
And too many young and middle-age adults
are skipping the vaccine altogether, says the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
even though there are more options than ever.
Some things to know about u vaccina-
The government recommends a yearly u
vaccine for nearly everyone starting at 6
months of age. Yet only about half of
Americans get one, a number Frieden called
unfortunate. On average, the CDC estimates,
u kills about 24,000 Americans a year.
Vaccination rates last year were highest for
children under 5 70 percent and for sen-
iors 65 percent, the CDC said. But just a
third of healthy adults ages 18 to 64 got vac-
cinated and, surprisingly, last year hospital-
izations were highest among that age group.
About 55 percent of school-age children
were vaccinated. Parents need to realize that
u vaccine is crucial even for otherwise
healthy children, said Dr. Paul Oft of the
Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia. At least
100 U.S. children died of u last year, only
half of whom had lung conditions or other ill-
nesses that put them at high risk and most of
whom werent vaccinated.
About half of pregnant women get vacci-
nated. The shot can be given during any
trimester, and also protects the baby during
the rst few months of life, said obstetrician
Dr. Laura Riley of Massachusetts General
About 150 million doses are being shipped
this year, with no signs of shortages or
delays, Frieden said. About half will protect
against four strains of inuenza instead of the
usual three, he said, as U.S. manufacturers
move toward vaccines with that extra bit of
protection. CDC doesnt recommend one over
the other.
For the rst time this year, the CDC says
the ouchless FluMist nasal spray version is
the preferred vaccine for healthy children ages
2 to 8, after research showed it works a little
better for them. But dont wait if your doctor
has only the shot just get them vaccinated,
said Dr. William Schaffner of Vanderbilt
University and the National Foundation for
Infectious Diseases.

Health workers load Spanish Ebola patient, Catholic priest Manuel Garcia Viejo, into an ambulance on the tarmac of Torrejon
airbase after he was repatriated from Sierra Leone for treatment in Spain.
Spain says Ebola
test drug out of
supply worldwide
MADRID Doctors treating a Spanish priest who was
repatriated from West Africa on Monday after being diag-
nosed with the Ebola virus said there were no samples of
experimental drug ZMapp available in the world right
now, and they were considering alternative treatments.
The priest, Manuel Garcia Viejo, 69, was in serious con-
dition and was suffering from dehydration, with kidney
and liver complications, said Javier Rodriguez, chief
health officer for the Madrid region.
Garcia Viejo, a medical director of the San Juan de Dios
Hospital in Lunsar, Sierra Leone, was transferred to
Madrid Carlos III hospital after being flown back from
Sierra Leone in a medically-equipped military plane.
Mapp Biopharmaceutical, the company that makes
ZMapp, says the drug's supplies are exhausted and that it
takes months to make even a small batch.
With ZMapp unavailable, the hospital was looking into
alternative medicines or the possibility of using blood
serum from a cured patient, said Dr. Jose Ramon Arribas,
of the Carlos III hospital.
Garcia Viejo is the second Spanish missionary to catch
Ebola. Another priest, Miguel Pajares, 75, was flown
back to Spain from Liberia on Aug. 7. Pajares began treat-
ment with ZMapp, but died Aug. 12.
Ebola is blamed for the deaths of more than 2,600 peo-
ple in West Africa.
The Health Ministry said Garcia Viejo asked to be trans-
ferred back to Spain after testing positive for the deadly

FREETOWN, Sierra Leone Two of
the West African nations hardest hit
by Ebola were bracing for new case-
loads on Monday after trying to out-
ank the outbreak with a nationwide
checkup and a large new clinic.
Sierra Leone was expected to
announce a sharp increase in Ebola
patients Tuesday following a nation-
wide effort to identify new cases,
while Liberia opened its largest treat-
ment center yet.
Both countries have poor health
systems, weakened by the loss to
Ebola of many of doctors and nurses.
The World Health Organization esti-
mated last week that they have only
about 20 percent of the beds they need
to treat Ebola patients.
Still, identifying the sick is funda-
mental to containing the disease, and
Sierra Leone went to an extreme
unseen since the plague ravaged
Europe during the Middle Ages, order-
ing an entire nations people to
remain at home while teams went door
to door handing out soap and informa-
More than 1 million households
were checked for Ebola and told how to
prevent its spread, authorities said.
Officials had previously predicted
that they would nd hundreds of new
cases during the three-day shutdown,
and government spokesman Abdulai
Bayraytay said Sierra Leone was
preparing tents for use as temporary
treatment centers before announcing
their ndings on Tuesday.
In Liberia, meanwhile, ambu-
lances rushed to fill the nations
largest new treatment center, a 150-
bed hospital on the outskirts of
Monrovia that opened on Sunday,
run by the Health Ministry, WHO
and a team of Ugandan doctors.
By Monday, the new clinic had
admitted 112 people, though only 46
of those have tested positive for
Ebola, said Assistant Health Minister
Tolbert Nyenswah. The rest were
being held for observation and treated
for other diseases, like malaria.
Ebola, transmitted through bodily
uids, is now blamed for the deaths of
more than 2,800 people in West
Africa, according to new figures
released Monday by the WHO. More
than 5,800 are believed to have been
sickened. Most of the infections have
been in Liberia, but the disease, which
was rst identied in Guinea, has also
spread to Nigeria and Senegal.
At least 77 bodies were buried during
Sierra Leones shutdown and half test-
ed positive for Ebola, Bayraytay said.
Ofcials were waiting on laboratory
tests for the other half. The disease is
thought to have killed more than 600
people in the nation of 6 million.

stayed the same, said Nancy Magee,
administrator for board support and
community relations at the county
Ofce of Education. The county has yet
to receive statistics on its class of
2014 pass rate from the state.
Wed like to see growth every year
of course, Magee said. When we
look at the ve-year change, the num-
bers for CASHEE have stayed consis-
tent. Its been in the high 80 percents.
It started in 85 percent passes in 2009
and it has jumped over the years. It
pretty much stays in that spot year
after year. I would like to see it bump
up some.
For 10th-graders, scores can narrow
down the kinds of interventions they
need, she said.
For the San Mateo Union High
School, 90 percent of 10th-graders
test passed the mathematics portion of
the test. For English language arts, 89
percent of 10th-graders passed. In
terms of the class of 2014 pass rate, 98
percent passed the language arts sec-
tion, while 99 percent passed the math
Were always happy to see the num-
ber that passed, said Cynthia Clark,
director of curriculum and assessment
for the district. The challenge is the
prociency. We would like more stu-
dents reach prociencies at younger
age. Seventy percent of students (in
the district) enroll in college right out
of school; still its that prociency
and how will make sure competitive
and successful in college.
The passing rate score is 350, while
the prociency rate on the federal level
is 380. If not all students reach the
procient level, the district can be put
in program improvement status by the
federal government, said Andy
Parsons, associate superintendent of
instructional services. This year, the
district fell back on prociency, he
said. The districts 10th-graders had a
proficiency rate of 74.5 percent in
math, and 73.2 percent in English.
Still, the state is in the process of
switching to the new Common Core
curriculum standards that shift to using
more technology in the classroom, he
Its a one-day snapshot, he said.
Im concerned parents and students
are going to look at one day of a 10th-
grade year.
The CAHSEE is administered each
year to ensure students who graduate
from public high schools demonstrate
competency in reading, writing and
mathematics. Students who do not
pass the CAHSEE in 10th-grade have
two opportunities in 11th-grade and up
to ve opportunities in grade twelve to
pass the exam. The preliminary 2013-
14 results are for the July, October,
November and December 2013 and the
February, March and May 2014 test
I am pleased Californias high
school students continue to pass this
graduation exam at record rates,
Torlakson said. Dedicated educators
have worked hard in difcult times to
prepare students for college and
careers, but we must keep striving for
even higher levels of achievement so
all students have the skills, knowl-
edge and tools they need to be suc-
In the Sequoia Union High School
District, 89 percent of 10th-graders
passed the math portion of the test,
while 85 percent of 10th-graders
passed the language arts part.
In the South San Francisco Unied
School District, 86 percent of 10th-
graders passed the math and language
arts portions of the test.
We are very pleased that we are see-
ing growth over the course of the past
few years with our census CAHSEE
data, wrote Shawnterra Moore
Thomas, assistant superintendent for
educational services and categorical
programs, in an email. In particular,
we are seeing growth with the number
and percent of all students who are
passing the CAHSEE. In addition,
we are proud that our reclassied uent-
English procient students as well as
our economically disadvantaged and
not economically disadvantaged group
of students have also increased in the
overall percent of students passing.
The hard work of the staff, students and
parents are denitely evident with our
positive growth data.
The estimated 95.5 percent of the
students, totaling 417,960 students,
from the class of 2014 who met the
CAHSEE requirement by the end of
their senior year equals the same over-
all pass rate achieved by the class of
2013-and represents a 5.1 percent
since 2006, when the test was rst
required for graduation.
Students from the class of 2014 did
better than their counterparts from the
class of 2013 when taking the test for
the rst time as sophomores, when the
exam is rst given to all 10th-grade
students. About 74.8 percent of the
class of 2014 passed both the mathe-
matics and language arts portions of
the exam on their rst attempt a 1
percentage point increase over rst-
time test takers in 2013 and a 10.5 per-
centage point increase over rst-time
test takers in 2006.
During the 2013-14 CAHSEE admin-
istration, 608,720 students took the
language arts section with 459,864
passing and 596,043 took the mathe-
matics section, with 461,607 passing.

They allege Flores and Joseph Ortiz,

shooters and Campos-Gonzales drove
the car. After spotting the victims,
Flores and Ortiz got out of the car and
started ring, Meyer told the jury.
Two victims lay dead in the street, a
third was mortally wounded and three
others were shot in the leg as they ran
for their lives, he said.
Ortiz pleaded guilty last year to the
three murders and other charges and
was sentenced by Illston to ve con-
secutive life terms plus 60 years in
prison. The plea bargain enabled him
to avoid a potential federal death
penalty if he had gone to trial and been
Prosecutors decided not to seek a
death penalty for Flores and Campos-
Gonzales, but the two men could face
life sentences if convicted.
The victims who died in the attack
were Omar Cortez, 18, Gonzalo
Avalos, 19, and Hector Flores, 20, all
of South San Francisco.

stance Jean Sfarzo be appointed as per-

estate of the decedent.
The petition requests authority to admin-
ister the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This au-
thority will allow the personal representa-
tive to take many actions without obtain-
ing court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the per-
sonal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted

If you object to the granting of the peti-
tion, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hear-
ing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent cred-
itor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representa-
tive, as defined in section 58(b) of the
California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal de-
livery to you of a notice under section
9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal au-
thority may affect your rights as a cred-
itor. You may want to consult with an at-
torney knowledgeable in California law.
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court a
Request for Special Notice (form DE-
154) of the filing of an inventory and ap-

SANAA, Yemen In a stunning sweep
of the Yemeni capital, the countrys Shiite
rebels seized homes, offices and military
bases of their Sunni foes on Monday, forc-
ing many into hiding and triggering an
exodus of civilians from the city after a
week of fighting that left 340 people
It was the latest development in the
Hawthi blitz, which has plunged volatile
Yemen into more turmoil, pitting the
Shiite rebels against the Sunni-dominated
military and their Islamist tribal allies.
The heavily armed Hawthi fighters on
Monday seized tanks and armored vehicles
from military headquarters they had over-
run, and raided the home of long-time arch-
enemy Maj. Gen. Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar,
the commander of the armys elite 1st
Armored Division and a veteran of a series
of wars against the Shiite rebels, as well as
residences of top Sunni Islamist militia-
men or the fundamentalist Islah party.
Al-Ahmar himself fled and was forced
into hiding, along with his followers, as
the U.N. envoy to Yemen, Jamal Benomar,
succeeded in mediating a deal on Sunday
between the Shiite Hawthis and their
rivals and the fighting died down. But the
Hawthis made no concessions.
After flooding into Sanaa, the Hawthis
also took strategic installations and key
state buildings, though they claimed later
to have handed them back to the armys
military police.
Thousands of Hawthi fighters includ-
ing many youths were the only visible
force Monday on the streets of the capital.
They drove army tanks and armored vehi-
cles they looted from al-Ahmars forces
out of the city, heading north, likely to
the Hawthis heartland in the city of
The groups spokesman Mohammed
Abdul-Salam said the rebels will hunt
down those who committed violence
against them, indicating the possibility
of wider revenge attacks against oppo-
Yemeni Shiite rebels sweep into capital kill 340
