The neon-lit sign of the former
Carlos Club bar is certainly
unmistakable but is it also his-
After new owner John Lee cov-
ered up the marquee sign with a
covering bearing the new name
Rail Club, online forums like
Yelp and Nextdoor received a flurry
of comments by residents crying
foul. Now, the city is stepping
into the fray, hiring a historical
consultant to study the sign and
some of the original building
Meanwhile, City Manager Jeff
Maltbie said the owner agreed to
take the cover off the sign and is
being cooperative. Not that it
might matter; Mayor Olbert said
on a recent walk-by he noticed that
the light bulbs had been removed
in the sign and in a neon sign on
the buildings side.

The Belmont City Council opted
to go mobile Tuesday night by
approving the design and creation
of an app aimed at reducing redun-
dancies, engaging citizens and
promoting transparency.
The new self-service mobile app
will allow people to check out
whats going on at City Hall and
for those who see any kind of
maintenance issue, such as a pot-
hole, graffiti or even broken water
main, to pull out their smart-
phones and make a direct report to
the city. People can use GPS
through the app to identify the
exact location to city staff, attach
photos and see progress updates
on reported maintenance issues,
said Jason Eggers, the citys geo-
graphic information systems

hile creating the character of
Nancy Drew, some of the names
considered for the teenage girl
detective were Diana Dare, Stella Strong,
Nell Cody and Nan Nelson.
The Bobbsey Twins are two sets of frater-

One person created the Hardy Boys, the
Bobbsey Twins and Nancy Drew. Edward
Stratemeyer (1863-1930) founded the
Stratemeyer Syndicate in 1926.
Stratemeyer conceived of the ideas for
the juvenile series characters, created
the plot outlines and hired ghostwriters
to complete the stories. Each series was

Hillsborough police and the countys
Terrorism Counter Assault and hazardous
material teams spent nearly seven hours
working to clear the scene of a young man
who died by chemical suicide Sunday night.
Police were called to the 1000 block of
Hayne Road around 9 p. m. to find an 18-
year-old Hillsborough resident enclosed in
his car with a warning note taped inside the
drivers side window, Hillsborough police
Capt. Doug Davis said.
One of the first officers on scene was
injured after he walked by the car and was
overcome by fumes, Davis said. The officer
was taken to the hospital where he was treat-
ed and released, Davis said.
The countys Terrorism Counter Assault
Team, made up of various departments
SWAT teams, have been trained to handle
chemical suicide cases after previous cases
occurred in the county and nearby, Davis
said. In September, a father and son died
after inhaling chemicals in Mountain View.
Neither Davis nor the San Mateo County
Coroners Office would confirm which
chemicals the young man used, however,
hydrogen sulfide is commonly used in these
Police are unsure who made the initial 911
call or whose home Kashani was parked in

Kashanis note is indicative of a chemical
suicide case whereby the victims warn oth-
ers of the danger, Davis said.
Once this stuff dissipates off into the air,
its no longer a threat, but its a threat in a
confined space, Davis said. There was a
note, typical chemical suicide note. Just a
warning that theres a harmful gas inside.

San Carlos may ask voters to fund a
lengthy wish list of projects including
parks and recreation facilities, open space
and mixed-use development.
On Monday night, the City Council unan-
imously agreed to spend $500, 000 on tem-
porary staff to pursue those special projects
and figure out if placing a bond before vot-
ers to pay for them is feasible.
This is something Ive been trying to get
into the council discussion since I got on
board. There are a number of things we could
do to improve the quality of life in San
Carlos, said Mayor Mark Olbert, who was
elected in 2011.
In September, the City Council created a
list of seven goals for the next 10 years:
coordinate shuttle services like Uber and
Lyft; create a development on El Camino
Real with public parking, housing and
retail; move most government services
online; buy the Black Mountain property
for potential open space; create park and
recreation facilities for skating or dogs,
build an aquatic center and create more office
With so many large-scale projects like the
Transit Village and Wheeler Plaza already on
the citys plate, City Manager Jeff Maltbie
said there isnt enough manpower available
to tackle the list. The half-million dollars
from the general fund lets Maltbie hire two
to three project managers for 12 to 18
months for the new goals.
The City Council said it doesnt want the
allocation to be essentially a blank check
but Maltbie pointed out that any use greater
than $75, 000 must come back for approval.
The next step is working out the details of
a potential bond and taking the temperature
of a community that has rejected taxes in the
past. Olbert conceded that voters shy away
from taxes but thinks a bond for community
needs might fare better than the failed
Measure U, a quarter-cent sales tax proposal
for city services that failed in 2009.
I think my experience on the school dis-
trict taught me that if you have the right
value proposition the voters respond. And
there are a lot of things we could do with the
money that the residents say they want like
a pool, he said.
The amount and timing of a bond depends
largely on what items the City Council
decides to pursue. For example, Olbert said
the Black Mountain property might have a
greater sense of urgency because the family
owners may not be offering the sale forever.
The site is 10. 5 acres and the former loca-
tion of Black Mountain Spring Water com-
But that would be a nice feather in the cap
of the community to have the opportunity
to have public land, he said.
Funding for the projects doesnt stop with
the $500, 000. Maltbie said he will be back
to request money for other bond needs like a
survey firm, election consultant, communi-
ty meetings and specialized studies.

A group of dedicated feline activists is
inviting the public to join them tonight to
discuss facts, research, advice and attempt
to dispel misconceptions about coexisting
with mountain lions.
Members of the Bay Area Puma Project are
joining representatives from the California
Department of Fish and Wildlife and the San
Mateo County Sheriffs Office at the
Belmont Library to present Learning to
Live with Mountain Lions.
The lecture, slideshow and question and
answer panel will present research and stud-
ies conducted by the international group,
the Bay Area Puma Project.
A huge component of this project is to
engage communities and raise awareness
and really bring a greater intelligence with
responses in regards to predators; to
remove that fear base, because its real-
ly based on irrational thinking, said
Zara McDonald, president and project
director of the Bay Area Puma Project.
McDonald said shes been study-
ing mountain lions for nearly 12
years and began the puma project in
2008 in Santa Cruz and has since
expanded across the world. But there
is still much to learn about the puma
population and researchers across
the state have yet to determine how
many live in California, McDonald
said. Pumas are also known as
cougars and mountain lions.
One astonishing figure
from the Department of
Fish and Wildlife that
McDonald said is
important to note
while trying to
quench fears is
that between
85 percent and 90 percent of reported puma
sightings arent actually mountain lions.
Most often theyre bobcats, deer, dogs
and even mistaken housecats, said Ally
Nauer, development manager with the Bay
Area Puma Project.
Humans dont have great eyesight. So
not to say that people are just being igno-
rant, but a lot of times law enforcement has-
nt even seen a mountain lion, Nauer said.
More importantly, researchers know
pumas live nearby and they are seldom seen,
McDonald said. Mountain lions naturally
roam huge swaths of territory but humans
have had a detrimental effect on the ani-
mals ability to live as they were meant,
McDonald said.
Weve seen the population in the Bay
Area grow and with that growth comes
increased likeliness of sightings that are
real, but in fact, most sighting are not
real, McDonald said. The
chances do increase given that
the fragmentation of their
habitat is at an all-time
high. And lions quite
f r a n k l y,
have no interest in human beings. They
never have, they never will. Humans have
persecuted them.
McDonald said the media also frequently
misrepresents mountain lions by reporting
false sightings and theres always more to
consider when hearing about an unusual
On Sept. 7, a 6-year-old boy was attacked
by a mountain lion around 1:15 p. m. while
hiking on a trail with his family in
Cupertino. A few days later, wildlife offi-
cials and search crews chased the lion up a
tree and shot it.
McDonald said the cat was less than 2
years old and could have lost its mother
when it was young or been a dispersing cat
that had confusion about where to go.
Officials also arent sure of what immediate-
ly preceded the attack such as the distance
between the boy and his family or the lion,
McDonald said.
Pumas dont typically
stalk people on trails
and if the physically
capable lion truly
intended to kill, it
would have,
McDonald said.
Local resident Susan
Denner said the recent
reports motivated her to
help organize the upcom-
ing Learning to Live with
Mountain Lions seminar.
Because weve had so many
puma sightings in the area, I
wanted people to feel safer
about people taking their chil-
dren trick-or-treating on
Halloween and not be overly
concerned about running into
one of these beautiful cats,
Denner said.
McDonald said an important
component of the work she does
is informing residents how not to
deter mountain lions. Although its
illegal to hunt mountain lions,
California offers depredation
permits to those
who have had a
pet or live-
stock killed by
a puma. But
Mc Do n a l d
said its better
to avoid such instances by bringing pets
indoors at night and predator proofing live-
stock enclosures. People should also install
motion sensor lights and do anything they
can to detract deer from their properties,
McDonald said.
Wildlife experts also advise to avoid hik-
ing when mountain lions are more active at
dawn and dusk and to make loud noises and
wave ones arms if they do encounter one.
Mountain lions are not driven toward
urban areas to seek water but, in light of the
drought, deterring deer from ones property
is important, McDonald said.
The drought is obviously causing deer to
shift their movements a little bit more
toward water, and that means lions would
follow, because lions get a lot of their water
from the blood of deer, McDonald said.
To stave off a rare chance at seeing a
mountain lion, people should avoid plants
that are tasty to deer, keep their properties
secure and, if living in a rural area, consider
guard dogs, McDonald said.
Killing mountain lions as a defense can
be detrimental as they naturally remove
weakened or diseased prey, reduce Lyme dis-
ease by keeping the deer population in

McDonald said.
It all comes down to a decision on the
part of communities to coexist with wildlife
and what measures will you go to, that can
be a relatively small effort to accommodate
wildlife so that they remain on our land-
scape, McDonald said. We need them on
our natural landscapes. They actually keep
our natural landscape and ecosystem more
robust and free of disease.

Supply rocket
headed to space
station explodes
By Marcia Dunn
unmanned commercial supply
rocket bound for the International
Space Station exploded moments
after liftoff Tuesday evening, with
debris falling in flames over the
launch site in Virginia. No injuries
were reported following the first
catastrophic launch in NASAs
commercial spaceflight effort.
The accident at Orbital Sciences
Corp. s launch complex at
Wallops Island was sure to draw
criticism over the space agencys
growing reliance on private U. S.
companies in this post-shuttle
NASAis paying billions of dol-
lars to Orbital Sciences and the
SpaceX company to make station
deliveries, and its counting on
SpaceX and Boeing to start flying
U.S. astronauts to the orbiting lab
as early as 2017. NASAspokesman
Rob Navias said there was nothing
on the lost flight that was urgently
needed by the six people living on
the space station.
Orbital Sciences Antares rocket
blew up over the launch complex,
just six seconds after the liftoff.
The company said everyone at the
site had been accounted for, and the
damage appeared to be limited to
the facilities.
Flames could be seen shooting
into the sky as the sun set. There
was no hint of any trouble until the
rocket exploded. This was the sec-
ond launch attempt for the mis-
sion. Monday evenings try was
thwarted by a stray sailboat in the
rockets danger zone. The restric-
tions are in case of just such an
accident that occurred Tuesday.
We will understand what hap-
pened hopefully soon and
well get things back on track,
Orbital Sciences executive vice
president Frank Culbertson told
his team an hour after the failure.
Weve all seen this happen in our
business before, and weve all seen
the teams recover from this, and
we will do the same.
The roomful of engineers and
technicians were ordered to main-
tain all computer data for the ensu-
ing investigation. Culbertson
advised his staff not to talk to
news reporters and to refrain from
speculating among themselves.
Definitely do not talk outside
of our family, said Culbertson, a
former astronaut who once served
on the space station.
It was the fourth Cygnus bound
for the orbiting lab; the first flew
just over a year ago. SpaceX is
scheduled to launch another
Dragon supply ship from Cape
Canaveral in December.
Retail skirmish blocks
Apple Pay at checkout line
NEW YORK Plan on paying
in stores with your shiny new
iPhone 6? Not so fast.
Retailer resistance to Apple Pay
had been expected because Apple
hasnt offered incentives to install
pricey point-of-sale terminals and
train staff on its new mobile pay-
ment system. But the decision to
not accept Apple Pay by retailers
that already have contactless ter-
minals in the checkout line is a
skirmish rooted in competition.
Big merchants like McDonalds,
Macys and Foot Locker are all
accepting Apple Pay. But a consor-
tium of retailers called Merchant
Customer Exchange plans to offer
a rival mobile payment system
next year which could direct debit
customers checking accounts,
instead of using a credit card. It
also will be designed to track cus-
tomer buying patterns to be able
to offer targeted promotions. In
the meantime, some of the groups
biggest members, like CVS, 7-
Eleven, Best Buy and Wal-Mart,
are nixing so-called NFC pay-
ments even though they already
have the point-of-sale technology
in stores. Other retailers that
arent part of MCX, like Starbucks
and Taco Bell, are opting to devel-
op their own mobile payment
services, and so arent taking
Apple Pay either. Queries into
Merchant Customer Exchange
were not returned.
Apple CEO Tim Cook
says Apple Pay a success
Tim Cook said Apples new mobile
payment system had over 1 mil-
lion activations in the first three
days after it became available, and
is now more widely used than any
competing payment system.
Were already No. 1. Were more
than the total of the other guys,
Cook boasted Monday during a
tech industry conference, and
weve only been at it a week. He
said Visa and MasterCard officials
have told Apple that the Apple Pay
system is already seeing more use
than similar contactless meth-
ods of paying for purchases.

Wednesday Oct. 29, 2014 THE DAILY JOURNAL
By Jim Kuhnhenn
WASHINGTON President Barack
Obamas commander in the fight against
Ebola was expected to operate below the pub-
lic radar. But did that mean invisible?
Ron Klain has barely been seen, and a week
before midterm elections, Obama is pressing
to dispel criticism that the government cant
manage the Ebola crisis.
The White Houses behind-the-scenes coor-
dination of the Ebola response is being
severely tested, while the Pentagon and
states like New York and New Jersey take pub-
lic steps that are far firmer than federal guide-
lines. Thats creating the appearance of a
crazy quilt of Ebola measures.
The CDC is behind on this, New Jersey
Gov. Chris Christie said Tuesday. Governors
ultimately have responsibility to protect the
public health of people within their borders.
Some public health law experts say the
government could have anticipated differ-
ences in approaches and acted sooner to
establish federal guidelines for states to fol-
What happened is the case showed up in
New York and New Jersey, those two gover-
nors respond, knee jerk reaction, ... then you
see the federal government catch up to that a
little bit, said James G. Hodge Jr., a profes-
sor of public health law at the Sandra Day
OConnor College of Law at Arizona State
University. It would have been more benefi-
cial if CDCs guidance had come out, gosh,
maybe a week or so ago.
White House officials say Klain was
brought in for his management skills and
ability to coordinate the work of agencies
that range from the Pentagon to the
Department of Health and Human Services,
leaving most of the talking to the public
health doctors at the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention and National
Institutes of Health.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said
Klain, who has been in the job since last
Wednesday, has been dealing with the various
agencies of the government to streamline the
federal response. He has met virtually daily
with Obama including a lengthy Sunday
meeting with the administrations Ebola
Wheres czar? Ebola raises management questions
By Josh Lederman
WASHINGTON President Barack
Obama said Tuesday that the United States
cant be seen as shying away from battle
against Ebola and must support health care
workers who are returning from the front
lines in Africa.
Obama did not directly criticize quarantine
policies for returning health care workers
implemented in New York and New Jersey,
but he said monitoring of those who come
back from the fight needs to prudent and
based in science.
We dont want to discourage our health
care workers from going to the front lines
and dealing with this in an effective way,
he said.
Obama said a robust response in Africa
will stop the spread of the disease in the
United States. He reminded Americans only
two people have contracted the disease in
the U. S. and both are now disease-free.
The president spoke to reporters from the
White House after a phone call with one of
those patients, nurse Amber Vinson, just
after her release from the hospital. He also
called a USAID team deployed to West Africa
and said he plans to meet Wednesday with
public health workers who have there or are
planning to go to talk about how public
policy can support the incredible heroism
that they are showing.
America cannot look like it is shying
away because other people are watching
what we do, Obama said. If we dont have
robust international response in West
Africa, then we are actually endangering
ourselves here back home. In order to do
that, weve got to make sure that those
workers who are willing and able and dedi-
cated to go over there in a really tough job,
that theyre applauded, thanked and sup-
ported. That should be our priority. And we
can make sure that when they come back
they are being monitored in a prudent fash-

Union: California
hospitals not ready for Ebola
SAN DIEGO Five California hospitals
that say they are ready to treat the Ebola
virus lack proper training and equipment, a
nurses union said Tuesday.
The contention was part of an effort by
the California Nurses Association to call
attention to what it said was inadequate
preparation at University of California hos-
pitals in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San
Diego, Davis and Irvine.
On Friday, the hospital system told the
California Department of Public Health the
facilities were ready for patients.

Patient Zero in Ebola
outbreak was Guinean toddler
LONDON In the Guinean village where
the current West African Ebola outbreak
began, 14 graves mark the spot where the
lethal virus began to spiral out of control.
International aid workers who recently
visited Meliandou say nothing is normal
anymore and that families have been ripped
apart by the devastating toll of the virus.
The first known victim of the current out-
break was 2-year-old Emile Ouamouno, who
lived in the picturesque forest village with
his parents and three sisters, including 4-
year-old Philomene. The boy fell sick last
December with a mysterious illness that
caused fever, black stools and vomiting.
About a week after his death, Philomene got
sick and died.

Video: Islamic State hostage reports for captors
BEIRUT A captive British photojournalist has been
used by the Islamic State group to take on the role of a war
correspondent in the extremists latest propaganda video.
In the video, made public on Monday, John Cantlie calm-
ly stands before a camera in what he identifies as the embat-
tled Syrian town of Kobani. He asserts in the video that
Islamic State group fighters have pushed deep into the town
despite airstrikes by a U. S. -led coalition and that they are
winning the battle against Kurdish forces.
The strange spectacle of a prisoner who has admitted to
being afraid for his life being used as a spokesman is the lat-
est of example of the ISs attention-getting approach to
propagating its message and its threats.
The Associated Press could not independently verify the
video as authentic, although some of the images, including
footage the Islamic State group says was shot by a drone,
appear to be Kobani, a town near the Turkish border.
Sporadic gunfire can be heard in the background. At one
point in the 5 1/2-minute report, a Turkish flag can be seen
flying atop a grain silo; Cantlie is not in the same shot.
Although it was unclear exactly when the video was
recorded, Cantlie mentions specific news reports and state-
ments by Western officials from as recently as last week.
Without any safe access, there are no journalists here in
the city, Cantlie intones in the video. He wears black
clothes and is bearded. In previous videos, he wore an
orange jumpsuit as did the hostages beheaded by the
At least 18 miners trapped in
coal mine accident in Turkey
ANKARA, Turkey Surging water trapped at least 18
workers Tuesday in a coal mine in Turkey, officials and
reports said an event likely to raise even more concerns
about the nations poor workplace safety standards.
Initial reports said flooding inside the Has Sekerler mine
near the town of Ermenek in Karaman province caused a
cave-in, but subsequent reports workers were trapped by the
water. Turkeys emergency management agency, AFAD, said
a broken pipe in the mine caused the flooding but did not
Gov. Murat Koca said about 20 other workers escaped or
were rescued from the mine, some 500 kilometers (300
miles) south of Ankara, close to Turkeys Mediterranean
Sahin Uyar, an official at the privately owned coal mine,
told private NTV television that the miners were stuck more
than 300 meters (330 yards) underground.
At the moment, 18 of our colleagues are trapped. We are
working to pump water out from three sections of the mine,
he told NTV, adding that rescue crews had made no contact
with the miners.
Israel attorney general probes Palestinian bus ban
JERUSALEM Israels attorney general said Tuesday he
would ask the countrys defense minister to explain his pro-
posed order banning thousands of Palestinian workers from
the Israeli public buses they ride back to their homes in the
West Bank.
The proposed edict by Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon,
who has authority over security issues, comes after a request
by Jewish settlers who ride the buses. It also comes amid
heightened tensions between Israelis and Palestinians after
this summers Gaza War and other violence.
Every day, thousands of Palestinians enter Israel for work
from the West Bank, territory Israel captured from Jordan in
the 1967 war and which Palestinians want as part of their
future state.

IRBIL, Iraq Thousands of cheer-
ing, flag-waving people gave a noisy
send-off to a group of Iraqi Kurdish
peshmerga troops who left Tuesday for
Turkey the first step on their way to
help their Syrian brethren fight Islamic
extremists in the embattled border
town of Kobani.
The unprecedented mission by the
150 fighters to help fellow Kurds in
their battle with the Islamic State
group came after Ankara agreed to
allow the peshmerga cross into Syria
via Turkey although the Turkish
prime minister reiterated that his coun-
try would not be sending any ground
forces of its own to Kobani.
A U. S. State Department official con-
firmed that peshmerga fighters are on
their way to Kobani but did not know
when they were expected to arrive. The
official spoke on condition of
anonymity because he was not author-
ized to be identified in discussing the
Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu
told the BBC that sending the peshmer-
ga was the only way to help Kobani,
since other countries dont want to use
ground troops.
The Islamic State group launched its
offensive on Kobani and nearby Syrian
villages in mid-September, killing
more than 800 people, according to
activists. The Sunni extremists cap-
tured dozens of Kurdish villages around
Kobani and control parts of the town.
More than 200, 000 people have fled
across the border into Turkey.
The U. S. is leading a coalition that
has carried out dozens of airstrikes tar-

The deployment of the 150 peshmer-
ga fighters, who were authorized by the
Iraqi Kurdish government to go to
Kobani, underscores the sensitive
political tensions in the region.
Turkeys government views the
Syrian Kurds defending Kobani as loyal
to what Ankara regards as an extension
of the Kurdistan Workers Party, or
PKK. That group has waged a 30-year
insurgency in Turkey and is designated
a terrorist group by the U. S. and NATO.
Under pressure to take greater action
against the IS militants from the
West as well as from Kurds inside
Turkey and Syria the Turkish gov-
ernment agreed to let the fighters cross
through its territory. But it only is
allowing the peshmerga forces from
Iraq, with whom it has a good relation-
ship, and not those from the PKK.
Peshmerga spokesman Halgurd
Hekmat said the fighters were flying
Tuesday to Turkey and from there would

Being a lifelong fan and a 20-year

sary to state the obvious, Fox Sports
Channel does not know the basic
facts on how to televise a baseball
game. They spend way too much time
talking about themselves and whats
going to happen in the game instead
of just broadcasting what is happen-
ing. They leave out important per-

Fallacy of Proposition 46
I convey my deep condolences to
Thomas Bostrom for the loss of his
3-year-old daughter (letter to the edi-
tor: A vote for Proposition 46 is a
vote for patient safety in the Oct.
27 edition of the Daily Journal).
However, the thesis that her physi-
cians and nurses were not conscien-
tious in providing care at the high-
est level because they perceived that
they could be sued for only
$250, 000 is a base canard.
As a family physician who prac-
ticed in San Mateo for over 40 years,
I cannot count the anxious moments I
spent worrying about the care I, my
colleagues and nurses delivered to our
patients regardless of age or socioe-
conomic status.
To suggest that the professional
standards which are drummed into us
from the rst day of medical school
onward are somehow based on an
underlying assessment of economic
damages not only demeans our call-
ing as physicians but is offensive and
Bottom line: Do not be mislead
that Proposition 46 is about saving
lives or patient safety. It is about
money to accrue in the pockets of
trial lawyers. Vote no on 46.

Letters to the editor
he city of Half Moon Bay has
one of the highest sales tax
rates in the state at 9. 5 per-
cent. Has that dissuaded visitors from
coming to the city? Hardly.
On nice days and in October, during
pumpkin harvest, there are always
long streams of visitors making their
way to the coast to enjoy the sights
and take part in what the coastal city
The argument that a high tax rate
would cause the citys bottom line to
diminish and hurt its businesses when
it established this tax rate through
Measure J, passed in 2012, certainly
is diminished through the evidence
produced by simply looking around.
Still, the argument for the high tax
rate is problematic since the city is
seemingly reliant on this tax to fund
projects it probably should have
saved for previously.
Measure O is a three-year extension
of Measure H. Its proponents point to
its ability to help fund a new library
and that visitors will share the burden
with locals for it. Measure O will also
enable the city to make other infra-
structure improvements and the exi-
bility provided by Measure J has
allowed it to fund improvements like
the skate park and contribute money
to repair the Pilarcitos Creek Bridge.
But is that the point of a sales tax
Proponents say yes, particularly
since passing a bond for a new library
would require a two-thirds vote and the
citys property taxes were frozen at a
low rate when Proposition 13 passed
in 1979. While residents surely
appreciate that low property tax rate,
it limits what the city can do.
When Measure J was proposed, the
city was at the tail end of the reces-
sion when residents were still hurting
from the economic downturn. It was
also entangled by the Beachwood
debacle with the tough pill of $1 mil-
lion annual payments for 30 years.
Insurance payments reduced that lia-
bility, but the city is still on the
hook until 2019 pointed to by pro-
ponents as the end date for Measure O.
There are numerous ways in which a
city can raise revenue for projects its
council and community deem impor-
tant. Some cities raise hotel tax.
Other cities create special districts for
specic improvements. The city of
Half Moon Bay has selected this par-
ticular half-cent sales tax extension
as a way to create opportunities for it
to build a needed library and make
other improvements that were set
aside during previous nancial dif-
culties. One could argue that better
decisions could have been made in the
past, and thats always true, but the
fact of the matter is that this measure
is a nancial mechanism to not only
provide for improvements, but also
provide a buffer. Is that worth a half-
cent for every dollar spent on goods
outside of food and prescription
drugs? It can add up over time, but the
amount is negligible for the individ-
ual. Still, maintaining a high tax rate
is not the best way to help fund a city
and while the benets outweigh at the
individual cost at this point, this
measure should be the last of its kind.
Yes on Measure O
Just wondering!
ts better to know some of the questions than all
of the answers. James Thurber.
Assorted compelling thoughts:
1). In these days of drought, its very interesting, as
we drive here and there, to take note of the extreme dif-
ferences in peoples front yards especially their
lawns. They range from the perfectly groomed, emerald
green lawns and blooming bushes to those that look like
they havent been tended in years and left to become eye-
sores by people that obviously dont care about the
appearance of their neighborhood. Then there are those
in between who have lawns that are obviously suffering
because the owners are prudently saving water but still
are neatly trimmed.
I cant help but wonder
about those lush green
lawns and the people who
keep them that way in
spite of the drought. Are
they taking fewer showers
and washing the car less?
Do they, like the rest who
are still sporting green,
green lawns (yes, I know
which ones are fake), think
they are above having to
pay attention to watering
cutbacks like the rest of
us? Is it their habit to
think only of themselves?
2). We still read and hear about problems of sexual
misconduct by fraternity members. The partying, the
alcohol consumption, the rampant sexual behavior
(including rape) none seem to be under control. You
wonder if anything was ever done about it except lip
service. Those frat boys some barely out of high
school, are carrying on in very irresponsible ways. After
all, isnt the legal age for drinking alcohol 21? And what
about the mindless girls that go along with the partying
by drinking and risking becoming victims?
I recently read a very poignant, educational and inter-
esting book about adolescents (which includes these
kids chronologically and/or developmentally) titled,
Age of Opportunity by Laurence Steinberg, Ph. D. He
doesnt mean that adolescence is the age of opportunity
to carry on at these frat parties, but its the age that kids
need to learn self-control and prudence. He writes: The
elevated rates of risk taking in adolescence create a mas-
sive health problem, because many have consequences
that persist long after adolescence ends. He cautions
parents: Remember that unsupervised, unstructured time
with peers is often a recipe for risky and reckless behav-
ior. So why do colleges and universities still seem to be
leaving fraternities and sororities inappropriately to
their own devices? And why are so many parents appar-
ently so willingly blind to the consequences of this lack
of supervision?
3). It was reported Oct. 24 that Joan Quigley, who
became famous as the astrologer who President Reagan
and his wife Nancy depended on for advice in the 80s
has passed away. She spent seven years and many hours
of many days as the White House astrologer, advising
the Reagans on everything from the best time for travel,
summits and surgeries. Among other things, she also
took credit for reshaping the presidents views on the
Soviet Union. I wonder what the reaction would be now
if President Obama and Michelle were doing that.
4). What is it with the Walgreens store on Broadway in
Millbrae? When we call in a prescription renewal and
then they call us when its ready, they keep saying that
the store is located at the southeast corner of Broadway
and Taylor. Really? Thats where the Wells Fargo bank
is. In the first place, that Walgreens store is not on a
corner. It isnt even near the corner. Secondly, if it were
on the corner, wouldnt the northwest corner be more
accurate? But on that corner is the post office. It seems
that whoever figured that out could have used a compass.
And what is their obsession with their stores being on
the corner?
5). After watching the home games of the Giants, I
wonder why the players dont have their names on the
backs of their uniforms when they play at home like
they do when away. Do they think that everyone is so
familiar with those guys that they can identify all of the
players from the stands or on TV? There are two that I
can always spot right away intrepid Pablo Sandoval
because of his stocky body, and inimitable Hunter Pence
who wears his baseball pants above the knee. It would
make identifying the rest of the players much easier for
those of us who are not fanatics, but simply fans.
Maybe I need to pay more attention to that wise guru,
Ashleigh Brilliant, who quipped: Theres little in the
world I can change and of that, very little wants to be

Big movers

NEW YORK Strong corporate
earnings pushed up stocks across
industries on Tuesday, with the energy
sector and small companies leading
the gains.
Stocks rose from the opening of
trading, then built on the momentum
as investors sifted through mostly
encouraging quarterly results.
Whirlpool, AutoNation and engine-
maker Cummins all jumped 7 percent
after reporting their earnings.
With Tuesdays gain, the market has
recovered almost all of the ground that
it lost in a four-week slide through Oct.
15 that nearly drove the Standard and
Poors 500 into a correction, defined
as a drop of 10 percent or more from a
recent high.
Here we are just two weeks later, and
weve just about gained it back, said
Scott Wren, a stock strategist at Wells
Fargo Advisors. We think its still
going up.
Investors were also cheered by news
that a key gauge of U. S. consumer con-
fidence rebounded in October. The
Conference Board reported that its
confidence index hit a seven-year high
as solid job gains raised expectations
for economic growth, an encouraging
sign for retailers as they head into the
holiday shopping season.
Were predicting Christmas is
going to be very strong, said Phil
Orlando, chief equity strategist at
Federated Investments. Stocks are
cheap right now.
The S&P 500 rose 23. 42 points, or
1. 2 percent, to 1, 985. 05. That puts it
another strong day from its record
high close of 2, 011. 36 on Sept. 18.
The Dow Jones industrial average
rose 187. 81 points, or 1. 1 percent, to
17, 005. 75. The Nasdaq composite
climbed 78. 36 points, or 1. 8 percent,
to 4, 564. 29.
The biggest gain was in the Russell
2000, a small stock index. It jumped
2. 9 percent.
Homebuilders rose following news
that U. S. home prices grew in August,
albeit at a more modest pace. The
Standard & Poors/Case-Shiller 20-
city home price index rose 5. 6 percent
in August from 12 months earlier.
Home prices were rising at a double-
digit rate as recently as last fall.
Meritage Homes rose 84 cents, or 2. 2
percent, to $38. 60.

Gilead beats Street 3Q forecasts
FOSTER CITY Gilead Sciences Inc. (GILD) on Tuesday
reported third-quarter prot of $2. 73 billion.
On a per-share basis, the Foster City-based company said
it had prot of $1. 67. Earnings, adjusted for one-time
gains and costs, came to $1. 84 per share.
The results surpassed Wall Street expectations. The aver-
age estimate of analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment
Research was for earnings of $1. 80 per share.
The HIV and hepatitis C drugmaker posted revenue of
$6. 04 billion in the period, also surpassing Street fore-
casts. Analysts expected $5. 88 billion, according to
Gilead expects full-year revenue in the range of $22 bil-
lion to $23 billion.
Gilead shares have risen 51 percent since the beginning
of the year, while the Standard & Poors 500 index has
climbed slightly more than 7 percent. In the nal minutes
of trading on Tuesday, shares hit $113. 45, an increase of
65 percent in the last 12 months.
Facebooks advertising revenue soars in 3Q
NEW YORK Facebook grew its advertising revenue by
64 percent in the third quarter, helped by a boost in mobile
ads that are becoming an increasingly large chunk of the
social networking giants overall advertising business.
The steady increase indicates that Facebook has succeed-
ed in steering advertisers to its mobile platform at a time
when most of its users are using Facebook on phones and
tablets. Investors were initially worried about the desktop
Web era-born companys ability to succeed in mobile
advertising, but those concerns are long gone.
Though Facebooks results surpassed expectations,
investors sent the companys stock down sharply not long
after the results came out, possibly spooked by comments
during a conference call that 2015 will be a signicant
year for expenses. The company said it expects costs to
grow by 55 percent to 75 percent next year as it ramps up
investment in its work force, growing existing products
and new areas such as WhatsApp, Oculus and video.
FTC says AT&T misled
customers over unlimited data
WASHINGTON AT&T is being sued by the government
over allegations it misled millions of smartphone cus-
tomers who were promised unlimited data but had their
Internet speeds cut by the company slowing their abili-
ty to open web pages or watch streaming video.
The Federal Trade Commission led its complaint
Tuesday against AT&T Mobility Inc. , charging that the
telecom company failed to adequately disclose to customers
that it would reduce data speeds if they went over a certain
amount of data use in a billing cycle. The practice, known
as throttling, slowed web browsing, GPS navigation or
streaming videos.
According to the complaint, at least 3. 5 million con-
sumers have been affected. Some customers, the agency
said, had data speeds slowed by nearly 90 percent.

WASHINGTON U. S. consumer

October, hitting a seven-year high as
solid job gains raised expectations
for economic growth.
The Conference Board said Tuesday
that its confidence index climbed to
94. 5, t he st rongest readi ng si nce

However, confidence still lags pre-

WASHINGTON U. S. home prices
grew more slowly in August amid mod-
est sales, a trend that could help make
homes more affordable in the months
The Standard & Poors/Case-Shiller
20-city home price index, released
Tuesday, rose 5. 6 percent in August
from 12 months earlier. Thats down
from 6. 7 percent in July and the small-
est gain since November 2012. Home
prices were rising at a double-digit
pace as recently as March.
The rapid slowdown has been most
pronounced in many of the western
cities that had seen the biggest price
gains in recent years. The annual price
gain in Las Vegas braked sharply to
just 10. 1 percent from 12. 8 percent in
July. Prices rose 9 percent in San
Francisco from a year earlier, down
from 10. 5 percent.
The smaller price gains, combined
with a recent drop in mortgage rates,
could spur more sales. Home sales rose
in September to their fastest pace this
year, but still remain slightly below
the pace reached 12 months earlier.
The number of homes for sale is rising,
which helps keep prices in check.
Were transitioning away from a
period of hot and bothered market
activity, characterized by low invento-
ry and rapid price growth, onto a more
slow and steady trajectory, which is
great news, Zillow chief economist
Stan Humphries said.

INDIANAPOLIS NCAA President Mark Emmert keeps
touting the record-breaking graduation rates of Division I
athletes. Critics keep balking at the interpretation of those
numbers, citing recent academic scandals.
The NCAAs newest graduation report, released Tuesday,
showed 84 percent of athletes who entered college in 2007-
08 earned a degree within six years, a 2 percentage-point
increase over last years previous high mark. The four-year
average of 82 percent is another record, up 1 percentage
point from the 2013 report. Emmert also said there were
increases in almost all demographics in the one-year meas-
urement some rare good news for a governing body in
Its the highest (rate) ever by a good measure and its up
virtually across the board football, basketball, all other
sports, men, women, all races included, Emmert told The
Associated Press. So its the best academic performance
weve ever seen.
The federal numbers show a similar trend.
Over the four-year period covering freshmen classes from
2004-07, athletes graduated at a rate of 65 percent, 1 point
higher than the general student body. The 2006-07 fresh-
men class also set a record, 66 percent, compared with 65
percent of non-athletes.
The difference in rates is that the NCAA counts athletes
who transfer in good academic standing and graduate from
another school. The feds do not.
Those who question the NCAAs stats contend the higher
numbers are skewed because athletes have more access to
tutors, learning specialists and multimillion-dollar academ-
ic centers all of which are intended to keep players aca-
demically eligible and on track to graduate. They also
believe athletes are sometimes being advised to take easier
What really is happening is that athletes are being fun-
neled into the majors of least resistance, said Oklahoma
professor Gerald Gurney, president of The Drake Group, an
NCAA watchdog. They really, based on their athletic com-
mitment, do not have an opportunity to pursue an education
at all, much less a world-class education.
This year, the critics have even more ammunition thanks
to a series of high-profile academic scandals.
In August, Notre Dame suspended five football players for
alleged academic misconduct. One player has returned to
practice but none have been reinstated to play.
Earlier this month, media reports said Syracuses football
and mens basketball teams face an NCAA hearing over
alleged rules violations that include academic impropriety.

When people start talking about rankings
and statistics and yardage, College of San
Mateo football coach Bret Pollack turns a
deaf ear.
Hes not interested in quantifying num-
bers in the game of football, save two: the
final numbers on the scoreboard.
Everything else is a means to an end.
While 288 yards rushing is nothing at
which to sneeze, its also not that eye-pop-
ping number that elicits gasps. Yet the
Bulldogs scored eight rushing touchdowns
in a 61-14 drubbing of the Dons.
Thats why yardage doesnt matter,
Pollack said, noting CSM took advantage
of a number of De Anza turnovers.
We were getting short fields.
Running back Sammy Fanua tied a single-
game school record with four touchdowns in
one game, and yet he gained only 38 yards
on nine carries. All four of the scores came
on runs inside the 10-yard line.
He took advantage of his opportunities.
Thats his job (to score down there). Thats
his job. He did it well, Pollack said.
The lopsided score allowed the CSM
coaching staff to get a look at some of the
players deeper on the bench. For Pollack
and the coaching staff, its a prime chance
to see how players respond in a real game.
I dont know if they all (the running
backs) got carries, but they (all) played.
Last time we cleared the bench like that was
Delta (Week 4, Sept. 27, a 52-7 CSM win),
Pollack said. Its a good opportunity to
take advantage and to see how their practice
time has paid off. It gives them automatic
All told, nine players got a carry against
De Anza, with no one getting more than 10
touches. Michael Allen led the way with 76
yards on seven carries, followed by Michael
Latus 68 on nine.
Allen and Latu each scored a pair of touch-
downs as well.
Its been fluid (in the backfield). There is
no doubt about that, Pollack said, adding
they seem to be recovered from some early-
season injuries. Certain guys are better at
different things. Thats the great thing
about having flexibility, they have the
skills you can use when you need them.
Up next: vs. Foothill, 1 p.m. Saturday
The Bulldogs, 2-0 in National-Bay 6
Conference play, 6-1 overall and ranked No.
2 in the state, go from a no-win team last
week (De Anza) to a one-win team this week
in the Owls.
Foothill is coming off a 35-9 loss against
Diablo Valley and hasnt won since beating
College of the Sequoias 27-24 in the season
opener. Over the last three weeks, Foothill
has managed a total of 25 points.
They use tight ends, they have a couple
of mobile quarterbacks, some running
backs, Pollack said of the Owls offense,
adding their strength on defense would be
their defensive line.
It wasnt too long ago this matchup was
considered a rivalry game because at the
time, both schools were drawing from some
of the same schools on the Peninsula. It
wasnt uncommon to see former high
school teammates square off when Foothill
and CSM met.
Now, however, that kind of talk has all
but withered away. Now, the Owls are just
the next game on CSMs schedule call it
what you want.
What creates the rivalry are competitive
games. Its not just a rivalry because a
school is close to you because the recruiting
lines are blurred, Pollack said. For years,
you could say San Francisco and [CSM] was
a rivalry. No, we didnt make it rivalry
because we didnt win.
Besides, Pollack would not expect any-
thing less than 100 percent from each play-
er on the team regardless of who the oppo-
nent is. The opponent should not dictate the
intensity of each individuals performance
is the way Pollack sees it.
Are you going to try harder? Play less
(hard in other games)? Pollack asked.
Lets call it a rivalry. What does that
change? Lets not call it a rivalry? What
does that change?
CSM womens water polo
The Lady Bulldogs reached the . 500 mark
for the season and a winning record in Coast
Conference play with a trio of wins last
week 14-11 over Merced, 7-6 over Santa
Rosa and 18-6 over Laney-Oakland.
Those victories evened CSMs overall
record at 10-10 and with the win over Laney,
the Bulldogs improved to 3-2 in conference.
More importantly, Wright believes his
team has all but wrapped up third place in
the conference, which means a theoretical
easier path to the finals of the conference
tournament and a spot in the Northern
California tournament.
It also gives them a first-round home
playoff match Nov. 5 at 3:30 p. m.
The Bulldogs still have some unfinished
work to do before that, however, as they
their final home game against Cabrillo
today at 2:30 p. m.
It should be a solid game. We win this,
were guaranteed third spot, Wright said.
Top-3 in conference is a goal every year.
Making the (Coast Conference) finals is a
goal every year.
Stats dont always tell the whole story
CSM running back Sammy Fanua had only nine carries in a 61-14 win over De Anza but
he scored on four of them, tying a school record.

Recovery-Vacation-Respite-Shorr Term Stays
Always Welcome!
By Antonio Gonzalez
STANFORD Sick of losing and on the
verge of irrelevance in the Pac-12 race, David
Shaw did what some thought he never would.
Shaw scrapped Stanfords model of offense
for a spread-style approach more in line with
the rest of the conference. The Cardinal crushed
Oregon State 38-14 last Saturday with fly
sweeps, read-options and multiple wide receiv-
er sets, sometimes even looking like their
rivals to the north in a no-huddle offense.
The sudden and surprising change gives the
Pac-12s marquee matchup this week quite the
The Cardinal (5-3, 3-2) visit fifth-ranked
Oregon (7-1, 4-1) on Saturday night, and the
winner will move into first place in the
leagues North Division. Stanford has dashed
the Ducks national championship hopes the
past two seasons on the way to Pac-12 titles
and Rose Bowl berths, ending quarterback
Marcus Mariotas Heisman Trophy chances
each time.
But those program-defining victories fol-
lowed another blueprint, notably a ground-and-
pound run game that controlled the line of
scrimmage and the clock. The formula limited
Mariotas minutes and helped Stanfords
defense the most efficient in the nation this
season quiet one of the countrys highest-
scoring offenses.
We just have to do whatever our guys can
do, Shaw said. If we can get like we did last
year and get to our big personnel to be able to
run the ball efficiently, hey, thats great, we can
do that. If we have to spread it out and run and
throw and move the football, hey, we have to
do that. Nothing is off limits to us.
Shaw seemed reluctant to make such a dra-
matic change previously. Losses to Southern
California, Notre Dame and Arizona State left
him fed up and frustrated, though, especially
given the talent on his team.
So Shaw searched deep in his playbook and
created a few new tricks last week, partially
abandoning the power running game that
played a leading role in transforming the pro-
gram from an afterthought to an unlikely jug-
gernaut under Jim Harbaugh.
What we had been doing wasnt good
enough, Shaw said.
The Cardinal passed more to offset a young
offensive line that has struggled to block in the
run game. They ran more to the outside than
between the tackles because the running backs
are faster and shiftier than the physical bull-
dozers on past teams. And they opted for a no-
huddle offense, at times, to speed up the tempo
for quarterback Kevin Hogan who seems to
thrive in a quicker pace.
Stanford also created more touches for top
playmaker Ty Montgomery, promising fresh-
man Christian McCaffrey and deep-ball threat
Michael Rector. And it spread the ball around
more to utilize all of the teams threats, includ-
ing wide receivers Devon Cajuste and Jordan
Pratt and a trio of blossoming tight ends.
What players found is the offense actually
got simpler, allowing them to think quicker
and play faster.
We recognized that something needed to
change, Hogan said, and I think it changed
for the better.
The quick-strike approach is still in its
infancy, though, and the sample size is limited.
What worked against an overmatched Oregon
State team might not work against an Oregon
team that can score as fast as anybody.
Stanford upset the Ducks 20-17 in overtime
two years ago in Eugene. Last season, the
Cardinal led 26-0 in the fourth quarter before
holding off a frantic rally to beat Oregon 26-20
at Stanford Stadium.
Both are the lowest-scoring outputs the past
two years for Oregon, which is averaging 45.5
points this season, tied for fifth-best in the
nation. The Cardinals common thread was
playing keep-away Stanford held the ball for
42 minutes last year and 37 minutes in 2012.
With a change in personnel, those game
plans may not be an option this season.
You have to be able to do it in different
ways, Shaw said, because youre not always
the same team as you were last time.

SAN ANTONIO Tony Parker had 23
points, including the game-winning 3-
pointer, Manu Ginobili added 20 points and
the San Antonio Spurs capped an emotional
NBA championship commemoration with a
thrilling 101-100 victory over the Dallas
Mavericks in their season opener Tuesday
Tim Duncan had 14 points and 13
rebounds for his 14th double-double in a
season opener, the most by any player in
NBA history, according to Elias Sports.
Monta Ellis scored 26 points, Dirk
Nowitzki added 18 points and Devin Harris
had 17 points for Dallas.
Following a video
recap of the 2014 season
narrated by actor and
Spurs fan Samuel L.
Jackson, NBA
Commissioner Adam
Silver presented San
Antonios staff and play-
ers with their champi-
onship rings. The
inscription inside the ring was Good to
Great, which was coach Gregg Popovichs
mantra last season.
It was the teams first meeting since
Dallas took San Antonio to seven games in
the opening round of the playoffs last sea-
son the Spurs toughest test during their
run to a fifth NBA championship. The
rematch proved just as tense after a sluggish
After Nowitzki gave Dallas a 100-98 lead
with a fade-away jumper over Boris Diaw
with 1:37 remaining, Parker drained a 3-
pointer in front of the Mavericks bench off
a feed from Diaw for a 101-100 lead. Parker
was 4 for 4 on 3-pointers, matching a career
high for 3s in a game.
Chandler Parsons, who left the Houston
Rockets to sign with the Mavericks, missed
a 3-pointer with 0. 4 seconds remaining that
would have won the game. His shot hit the
front of the rim.
San Antonio committed five turnovers in
the first eight minutes and missed its first
three shots before returning to the fluid ball
sharing and long-range shooting that
resulted in a five-game rout of the Miami
Heat in the NBA Finals.
Both teams came to life during a tense
third quarter. Technical fouls were issued
against Tyson Chandler and Nowitzki about
a minute apart about 4 minutes into the third
quarter after both argued calls against them
made by official Jason Phillips.
Nowitzki continued to argue against an
offensive foul even after receiving the tech-
nical, leading Duncan to walk by the
Mavericks star a few times to argue in the
Both technical fouls came San Antonios
14-2 run that created a 62-59 lead with 6:36
remaining in the third.
Spurs edge Mavericks in season opener
Tony Parker
11-0 rout of St. Louis in 1985, since
Pittsburghs victory at Baltimore in 1979.
And the Giants have lost all four of their
World Series finales pushed to the limit.
Teams with the home-field advantage
have won 23 of the last 28 titles, including
five in a row. This Series has followed the
exact pattern of the only other all-wild card
matchup in 2002, when the Giants won the
opener, fell behind 2-1, took a 3-2 lead and
lost the last two games at Anaheim.
Ventura escaped his only trouble in the
third, when he walked the bases loaded with
one out and then got Buster Posey to ground
a 97 mph fastball into a double play.
Ventura threw fastballs on 81 of 100 pitch-
es, reaching up to 100 mph, and worked
around five walks. Royals manager Ned Yost
was able to rest the hard-throwing back of
his bullpen: Kelvin Herrera and Wade Davis
enter Game 7 with two days off and closer
Greg Holland with three.
In a Series marked by blowouts the first
in which five games were decided by five
runs or more Kansas City out-hit the
Giants 15-6 Tuesday. All nine Royals had
hits by the third inning, matching the mark
set by Arizona against the Yankees in Game
6 in 2001.
Cain drove in three runs and was among
six Royals with two hits each.
Mike Moustakas homered in the seventh
against Hunter Strickland, ending a 36-
inning homerless streak in the Series, the
longest since 1945.
Peavys outing was the shortest for a
Series starter since the Yankees David Wells
got just three outs against the Marlins 11
years ago in Game 5, according to STATS.
Peavy was charged with five runs and six
hits in 1 1-3 innings, leaving with a career
Series record of 0-2 with a 9. 58 ERA in three
starts. His record at Kauffman Stadium is 1-
7 with a 7. 28 ERA.
San Francisco had scored 15 straight runs
entering the night, but the Royals bludg-
eoned Peavy and Yusmeiro Petit in a 32-
minute bottom of the second to take a 7-0
Singles by Alex Gordon and Salvador
Perez put runners on the corners, and
Moustakas grounded a double over the first-
base bag, past Brandon Belt and down the
right-field line for a 1-0 lead.
Peavy struck out Omar Infante and, in the
nights key play, Alcides Escobar hit a
bouncer to Belt. With Peavy yelling
Home! Belt checked Perez at third and
then tried to out-race Escobar to first base
rather than throw to second baseman Joe
Panik, who already was at the base.
Escobar slid past Belts failed tag attempt
and into first to reach on the infield hit, and
Nori Aoki chased Peavy after 42 pitches
with a single to left.
Petit, who had pitched 12 scoreless post-
season innings coming in, allowed Cains
blooped single to shallow right and
advanced the runners with a wild pitch.
Hosmer chopped a ball that hopped over
shortstop Brandon Crawford for a double
that made it 6-0 and scored on Billy Butlers
double for a 7-0 lead.
Cain added an RBI double off Jean Machi
in the third, and Escobars run-scoring dou-
ble in the fifth made it 9-0.
Home cooking
Home teams are 23-3 in Games 6 and 7
combined since 1982. The last eight home
teams that won Game 6 to even the Series
also went on to win Game 7, and no road
team has lost Game 6 and rebounded to win
the title since the 1975 Cincinnati Reds at
Bostons Fenway Park
Up next
Gi ants : Hudson allowed three runs and
four hits in 5 2-3 innings in Game 3.
Royal s : Guthrie on Game 7: My memo-
ries of a Game 7 probably go back to Jack
Morris, 91, he said. I was 12 years old,
so certainly could appreciate the effort that
he gave and the magnitude of the game, to
be able to pitch like he did and win the
World Series.

Guber is chairman and CEO of Mandalay
Entertainment Group. He joined Joe
Lacobs group to buy the Warriors in 2010
for $450 million, which was then an NBA
record. Guber also owns a minority stake in
the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The email snafu comes at a time when the
NBA is reeling from other league executives
making racially charged statements.
Bruce Levenson announced last month
that he would sell his controlling interest in
the Atlanta Hawks and apologized for talk-
ing about race in an email in August 2012.
In that email, Levenson said the Hawks
struggle with attendance because the black
crowd scared away the whites and there are
simply not enough affluent black fans to
build a significant season ticket base.
Levensons email came after an investiga-
tion into comments Hawks general manager
Danny Ferry made while reading from a
scouting report about free agents. On a con-
ference call, Ferry described forward Luol
Deng, who now plays for Miami, as some-
one who has a little African in him.

bought the Clippers from the Sterling fami-
ly for a record $2 billion earlier this year.

SOSUA, Dominican Republic
Several St. Louis Cardinals were among
thousands of people who crowded into a
cemetery near the Dominican
Republics north coast for Tuesdays
burial of former major league outfielder
Oscar Taveras.
Some people clutched pictures of
Taveras as they walked behind his coffin
and entered the municipal cemetery in
the town of Sosua. The crowd had started
at a nearby church for a brief ceremony
ahead of the burial for the 22-year-old
slugger, who died Sunday following a
car crash.
St. Louis general manager John
Mozeliak, manager Mike Matheny, sec-
ond baseman Matt Carpenter and pitch-
er Carlos Martinez were among the
mourners from Taveras major league
He was my brother, he was my friend,
we were always together anytime we
went out, Martinez said.
The Giants and Royals observed a
moment of silence in Taveras honor
before Game 6 of the World Series in
Kansas City, Missouri.
Taveras was killed after authorities
say he lost control of his 2014
Chevrolet Camaro on a highway in the
popular tourist region of Puerto Plata,
north of the capital of Santo Domingo.
Officials said his 18-year-old girlfriend,
Edilia Arvelo, was in the car and also
The cause of the crash is under investi-
The sluggers father, Francisco
Taveras, thanked the crowd for coming
and teared up as he spoke at the ceme-
Im extremely devastated about what
has happened, he said. I urge young
people to wear their seatbelts and to
learn from what happened to my son.
Taveras was considered one of the
majors top prospects, and he hit .239
with three homers and 22 RBIs in 80
games this year. He was scheduled to
travel in November to the teams spring
training facility in Jupiter, Florida, and
then play in the Dominican Winter
Taveras was a teenager when he signed
with St. Louis as an international free
agent in 2008. Before this season, he
was ranked as the No. 3 overall prospect
by MLB.com and Baseball America.
He homered against the Giants
Yusmeiro Petit in his major league debut
May 31 and had a big solo drive in the
seventh inning of Game 2 in the NL
Championship Series against San
This is a huge loss for us and the
Dominican Republic, Matheny said.
He was our weapon off the bench and
we had plans for him next year. Even
though he was only 22, he wasnt afraid
of anything. He had a great heart, and
this is a tragedy for us.
Thousands attend Taveras burial
Family and friends of St. Louis Cardinals' outfielder Oscar Taveras accompany his
coffin during his funeral in the Sosua, Dominican Republic Tuesday. Taveras, 22,
was killed Sunday night along with Yamaly Arvelo, 18, while driving a 2014
Chevrolet Camaro on the tourist road Sosua-Puerto Plata on the north coast of
Dominican Republic, police said.

NEW YORK Don Stewart and his wife
will be home with the lights on Halloween
night, waiting for trick-or-treaters. But like
a lot of folks who stock up on candy, theyll
probably end up eating it themselves.
My wife and I buy candy every year,
knowing that trick-or-treaters wont come
to see us, said Stewart, an artist in
Homewood, Alabama. Thats why they buy
the treats they like, not necessarily what
they think kids will like: Nothing is wast-
ed. If we plan well, theres usually enough to
last us til Christmas.
This little game of self-deception plays
out each year in buildings where apart-
ment -dwel l ers wai t i n vai n for door
knocks and on suburban side streets and
country roads where kids dont wander.
We were bummed out the first few times,
said Stewart, until we realized, Hey this
is a bonus. We can buy all the candy we
want and eat it and its not our fault.
When Paula Werne moved to a rural stretch
in Ferdinand, Indiana, 32 years ago with her
farmer husband Gary, I was skeptical wed
have any trick-or-treaters. But her husband
insisted the location wouldnt deter locals.
I purchased multiple bags of goodies and
positioned a welcoming jack-o-lantern in
the front window, she recalled. And who
came? Not a soul. Not a single solitary soul
. . . I even checked to make sure the doorbell
worked. Twice. Her husband ate the candy,
and each year since, hes convinced her
this might be the year.
Some folks think fewer kids go door to
door these days, with more organized parties
and programs instead. Kids do their trick-

NEW YORK Dunkin Donuts plans to
roll out a croissant-doughnut hybrid in the
U. S. next week, but the company says
please dont call it a Cronut.
The chain tells the Associated Press it will
launch its Croissant Donut nationally for
a limited time starting Nov. 3.
It comes more than a year
after the Dominique Ansel
Bakery in New York City
introduced its now trade-
marked Cronut, which
became a viral sensa-
tion and spawned
numerous knockoffs.
Last summer,
Dunkin also
introduced a
c r o i s s a n t -
doughnut in
South Korea it
dubbed a New York Pie
John Costello, Dunkins president of
global marketing and innovation, said in a
phone interview that bakers around the
country have been mixing doughnuts and
croissants for at least 20 years. He said
Dunkin is constantly tracking consumer
and bakery trends and has been looking at
pastry combinations for several years
Are we copying a specific bakery in New
York? The answer is no, Costello said in a
phone interview.
The Croissant Donut is one of several new
offerings Dunkin has in the pipeline after
reporting disappointing quarterly sales last
week and warning it might struggle to make
its long-term growth targets this year.
Among the challenges the company is fac-
ing is increased competition, with chains
including Taco Bell going after the break-
fast crowd.
Dunkin, based in Canton,
Massachusetts, has nevertheless been open-
ing new U. S. locations and last week said it
sees potential for more than 17, 000 U. S.
locations over time, up from its current
8, 000.
As for the Croissant Donut, Dunkin says
the pastry will cost $2. 49.
Thats less than the $5 for
a Cronut, but more than
twice the $1 or so for
other Dunkin dough-
nuts, making it more
profitable for the
The Croissant
Donut will be covered
with the same glaze used
for its Glazed Donut, giving it
a familiar taste, but wont have any
cream filling like the Cronut. Costello
said Dunkin is looking at fillings and
glazes for future versions.
An email sent to the Dominique Ansels
press contact was not returned.
When asked to explain how the Croissant
Donut and Cronut differ, Dunkins Executive
Chef Jeff Miller said: Ive tried the product
that you mention. As the executive chef of
Dunkin, I like ours better.
Rob Branca, a franchisee whos on
Dunkins committee that develops new
products, said his friends and acquaintances
have been asking when the company would
roll out a version of the Cronut. He said he
thinks the Croissant Donut will be a hit
because the popularity of Cronuts hasnt
faded. But he noted it took some time for
Dunkin to come out with its croissant-
doughnut hybrid.
Were going to be selling a lot more of
them than a single shop bakery, so it was
important to do it right, Branca said.

MIAMI Alicia Silverstone may
have made her acting mark as a
Clueless valley girl, but these days
shed rather be known as someone so
very clued in about diet and health.
It was more than 16 years ago that
Silverstone switched to a vegan diet,
ditching animal products such as dairy
and meat. Since then, shes become an
outspoken advocate for what she con-
siders a cleaner, leaner and healthier
way to eat, and written a book The
Kind Diet so others can follow
The 38-year-old recently spoke with
the Associated Press during Miamis
vegan Seed Food and Wine Festival.
She dished about her favorite indul-
gences, Thanksgiving menu plans,
and how perceptions of vegan diets
have changed.
When I used to say I was vegan on
(David) Letterman, it was like a huge
joke for them, and thats not the way it
is anymore, she said. (The interview
was edited for length and clarity. )
As s o ci at ed Pres s : What are
s o me eas y t i ps f o r s o meo ne
fl i rti ng wi th cutti ng meat and
dai ry f o r a meal , a day, o r
l onger?
Si l vers tone: The most important
thing is to make the connection
between wellness and food, and thats
what I think is lacking the most in our
culture. If you had to pick one thing,
move away from the foods that are
harmful, the meat, the dairy, the sugar,
the processed foods. Just gently move
away from those and be adding in
grains. Even if you make a pot of
brown rice every three days and a pot
of beans or your favorite bean chili and
just a little steamed kale here and there,
with those things youre going to
notice such a massive difference and
its so easy to make those things.
Really date vegetarian restaurants.
Really start to try those places and
enjoy those places so you can see the
yumminess thats out there because
none of this should be deprivation.
AP: What are s ome of your
favori te i ndul ges ?
Si l vers tone: I was a hardcore food-
ie before I went plant-based and Ive
continued to be a hardcore foodie and
maybe more of a food snob. If it isnt
amazing, Im not interested. I know
that sounds really, really snobby but
its the truth because I know what good
food is and how delicious it can be.
Some of my favorite things that I
make, theres a million, but if youre
needing a meaty, salty fried taste,
theres fat-fried udon noodles with
sesame oil, garlic and ginger, or sweet
potato hash with kale and smoked
Field Roast sausage.
AP: So what wi l l you s erve for
your un-Turkey Day meal ?

Gore is more when it comes to
Halloween cocktails.
From classics like bloody mary to
new-fangled libations inspired by the
trend for all things vampiric, mixolo-
gists are seeing red for the annual cele-
bration of things fun and ghoulish.
Chef Richard Garcia of 606
Congress at the Renaissance Boston
Waterfront likes to play on the clas-
sics with his Ghost of Mary, a drink
where the blood of the tomato juice
swirls around in the glass.
He uses vodka mixed over ice with
his own special ghost mix of toma-
to-vegetable juice cocktail, lemons
and seasonings, then strained to create
an effect of blood swirling around in
the glass. For a shortcut, you can just
buy some bloody mary mix and strain
it in a coffee filter to remove some of
the solids.
Ghost of Mary is bloody good fun,
says Garcia. Its a drink with enough
kick to haunt you, just the kind of
Bloody Mary you want to drink by the
full moonlight.
At BANK Cafe and Bar in Napa, bar-
tenders will be making a blood and
sand, a classic cocktail that is
believed to have gotten its name from
the 1922 bullfighter movie of that
name starring Rudolf Valentino. The
red of cherry brandy brings the
blood to this drink, which also
includes scotch, sweet vermouth and
orange juice.
BANK bar manager Lou DAngelo
looked forward to mixing up a few for
Halloween revelers, especially those
who emulate the vampires so popular
in movies and TV shows.
It makes a really nice-looking
Halloween cocktail. Its not quite red
and its not quite orange, its just got
that blend of in between. Its a fun
cocktail, says DAngelo.
And if All Souls Day should find you
feeling like the ghost of your former
self, theres always the corpse reviv-
er, a drink featuring, among other
things, gin and absinthe.
Its just one of those cocktails,
says Jeff Fairbanks, lead bartender at
EPIC Roasthouse in San Francisco.
Its a classic. Its got a lot of history.
It tastes great, and it was intended to be
drunk before noon.

kids go up to strangers.
The trend hasnt stopped him from buying
the 200-plus-size bags of goodies from
Target. Its all for the children! he insist-
ed. But we bought Kit Kats and Snickers
candy we knew we would eat if we had to.
Bryanna Johns, 20, a student at Virginia
Commonwealth University in Richmond,
isnt that far removed from her childhood
trick-or-treating, but she thinks the practice
is losing its appeal. People are so worried
about can you trust who your child is getting
candy from. Theyre going trick-or-treating
more in childrens museums, churches and
malls instead.
She goes home Halloween night to help
her mom answer the door, but they typically
only get about 20 kids. So mom buys candy
the family likes Snickers and Reeses
Pieces, rather than fruity or fizzy sweets
and they watch a horror movie at evenings
end while finishing the leftovers.
Monique Lewis also has fond memories of
trick-or-treating as a kid in Arlington,
Virginia. But as an adult living in three dif-
ferent apartments, shes never had a trick-
First year in, I was so excited because I
was certain that I would be flooded. By the
time 10 p. m. had rolled around, I was stand-
ing in the hallway with my door open, fran-
tically searching for the missing treaters,
said Lewis, a marketing consultant now liv-
ing in Manhattan. Each time she moved, she
kept buying candy, thinking every build-
ing is different. She even decorated her
door to make it inviting.
But usually, the day after Halloween, shes
eating all the candy and throwing
impromptu get-togethers to get rid of it.

thinking about Thanksgiving yet, but on
my blog (TheKindLife. com) I post all my
menus from past Thanksgivings . . . Theres
these leek crostini that I make that are like
artichoke, pesto and leek and mushroom
that are just insane.
AP: Heres the inevitable how-do-I-get-
my-kids-to-eat-vegetables question.
Silverstone: Once you really start making
really healthful delicious food and thats just
the norm and theres no discussion about it
. . . it doesnt have to be a battle if thats how
you all eat. Thats whats served. There isnt
another option. If theyre hungry for dinner
and they go on strike, and believe me they
will . . . theyre going to get hungry and
come around to the delicious food when their
tummy is hungry and their tantrum is over.
AP: Are you seeing more people embrac-
ing this lifestyle? And where do you see the
evolution going?
Silverstone: This choice improved my
health and wellbeing 100 percent. There was
this glow from the inside out and thats what
becomes contagious and the more of us that
are out there, everyday a new person is
woken up to it. Ive heard from so many
people on my website who have lost
weight. . . . Its changed so many peoples
lives so I really do just believe in the sim-
plicity of the story.

o youve landed in a foodie destina-
tion, a happening city brimming
with top tier restaurants and chefs
sporting scary-good culinary cred. You
want to make the most of your time.
But even the most intrepid eaters can
pack only so many meals into a day. And
every meal eaten at one restaurant means
missed meals at others. As a veteran of
many on-the-road meals, Ive developed a
novel approach to dining that allows me to
sample a wide array of restaurants without
entirely embracing gluttony.
The principle is simple: Dont eat a full
meal in any one place.
Heres how it works. A typical mid- to
high-end dinner consists of three or more
courses. Instead of eating them all at the
same restaurant, spread those courses over
a series of eateries a cocktail and nib-
bles at one, a starter at another, main
course at a third, coffee and dessert at a
You could select three or more restaurants
youre eager to try. Or pick a theme, such
as a particular cuisine. Have a favorite chef
with multiple restaurants? Eat a different
course at each.
Depending on distances, set aside four to
six hours for this project (its still less
time than four full meals). Be sure to pace
yourself (dont ll up on the bread basket).
And do your research. Check opening
times, make reservations, plot out a logi-
cal sequence for visiting each place.
On a recent multi-course eating adventure
in New York, I visited all of April
Bloomelds restaurants over the course of
one ve-hour lunch. Her brash, unapolo-
getic way of cooking and easy way with
small plates that pack big avor made her
restaurants the perfect choice for the expe-
A co-worker and I started at The John
Dory Oyster Bar, a beautiful, inviting place
with high tables, a
visually striking open
raw bar and soaring
windows. We split a
dozen oysters present-
ed on a pedestal at the
table. A house-made red
pepper and ketchup
cocktail sauce was a
perfect companion, as
was my classic old-
fashioned made with
Whistle Pig rye.
We desperately want-
ed the pumpkin toast with marjoram pesto,
and the pork sandwich with tuna-caper
mayonnaise, but in a marathon such as
this, self-control is key.
So we meandered next door to The
Breslin, Bloomelds dark-paneled ode to
British pub fare. We took a cozy booth by
the kitchen and watched her team prepare
platter upon platter of cumin mayo-
slathered lamb burgers and monstrous
Scotch eggs (a hard-cooked egg swathed in
sausage, then breaded and deep-fried).
But we restrained ourselves and instead
began with one of Bloomelds bar snacks,
a bag of shatteringly crisp caramel pop-
corn. We then indulged in the terrine board,
an assortment of ve meaty offerings,
including rustic pork pate studded with pis-
tachios, and creamy, rich liverwurst that
begged to be smeared thickly on the
chunky toast.
Now it was time to head across town to
Bloomelds agship, The Spotted Pig.
Many of the items here have become clas-
sics, including deviled eggs and her burger
topped with Roquefort cheese. We kept it
simple a sensational apple salad with
cheddar, and the roll mop, pickled herring
rolled into a tight cylinder, topped with
creme fraiche and herbs. As my companion
put it: These are life-changing.

dite it, eliminate redundancies to be
more efficient and just leverage the cit-
izens. Because theyre the eyes and the
ears and they see whats going on. And
with the pervasiveness of mobile
devices nowadays, its just a smart way
to get the work done, Eggers said.
Users can also see other reports in
the area or if someone previously noti-
fied the city of the problem, Eggers
said. If the city has already been made
aware of a particular maintenance issue,
residents can click support the
request, which is similar to liking
something on Facebook, Egger said.
The app will also be widely used by
city staff and maintenance crews as
Belmonts current email, phone or in-
office report system can have delays,
Eggers said. For instance, if someone
makes a report on a problem they
noticed a few days earlier, a mainte-
nance worker might arrive to find out it
was fixed the day before, Egger said.
The app will also promote trans-
parency by allowing users to track city
response times and stay up to date with
whats going on at City Hall,
Belmonts IT Director Bill Mitchell
The city will contract with Public
Stuff, Inc. , a company currently being
used by Palo Alto and Redwood City.
The City Council approved a $10, 400
annual contract for one year, with two
one-year renewal options, Mitchell
The app is anticipated to be released
sometime in January or February and
the citys efforts to become more tech-
savvy coincide with the revamp of its
website about six months ago,
Mitchell said. The city paid about
$40, 000 for its new, more user-friendly
website and a $600 per month hosting
and maintenance fee, Mitchell said.
The new app will also have widgets
that link to content on the citys web-
site such as community and city meet-
ings, events and whatever proves to be
most trending, Eggers said.
Like all things Web-based, its
organic and dynamic. So what we do is
consume the Web analytics and see
where people are going and what peo-
ple are searching for and we can pro-
mote those on the widgets on the
mobile app and kind of change that up
as interests ebbs and flows, Egger
Users will also be able to sign up for
notifications on issues such as the
Ralston Avenue Corridor Study or the
update of the Belmont Master Plan,
Egger said.
Although Belmont isnt the first
public agency to hop on the tech wave,
Egger said its right on track to reach-
ing the community through modern
Its a pretty common trend now,
were certainly not cutting edge doing
this. But I think those cities who dont
do it soon will be playing catch up,
Egger said. Because this is just a way
people like to communicate now and
its a way for them to communicate
with City Hall 24/7.

Even if one wished to turn the sign
back on thered be nothing to show
for it, Olbert said.
If the sign is deemed historic, the
city can purchase and relocate the
sign or forbid its removal. The city
could also require the owner to repli-
cate the neon marquee style in any
new sign with the current bars name.
What the city cant do is force the new
business to keep the old Carlos Club
Olbert said the name itself is iconic
to a certain generation and thinks any
change may be upsetting.
The San Carlos Club has stood on El
Camino Real across from the train sta-
tion in San Carlos since 1947 and the
building itself is past 100 years old.
Notable acts include blues performer
John Lee Hooker and even a few
politicians were known to pay a visit,
according to Olbert and some online
Prior to its purchase by Lee was the
source of debate over what city offi-
cials said was an uptick in police
responses to and around the bar. Then-
owner Fred Duncans attempt to
expand the nightclub in 2011 set off a
prolonged stretch of public hearings
and debate over the business and the
clientele. Duncan said he wanted to add
food, live music and an outdoor patio
to bolster business. The City Council
said it couldnt overcome public safe-
ty concerns after the police chief
showed logs of calls. After the denial,
Duncan put the club up for sale.
The Rail Club is billed as a sports
bar and grill with handcrafted cock-
tails and special nights for karaoke
and bands.
New owner Lee did not respond to an
inquiry but is interested in expanding
his bar with food, too. Olbert thinks
his request might find a different reac-
tion than Duncans.
What Ive been told is that while
Freds idea was to be basically a bar
with some food the new owner wants
to turn it into a restaurant with a bar
which I personally think would be
great, Olbert said.
Lee also owns Burmese restaurant
Rangoon Rubys in San Carlos and
Palo Alto.

San Carlos, owner Tony Rohatch is
seeing its $25 major league baseballs
sell well. The store originally opened
in San Mateo on Oct. 1, 2010, right
before the Giants were in the World
Series for the first time since 2002.
Popular selling jerseys include Posey,
Bumgarner and outfielder Travis
This is in preparation for people
who want to get autographs on the
balls, Rohatch said. Those have
been selling like crazy. The collectors
especially; thats kind of like the most
Buyers will get the team to sign
balls with the World Series logo,
which probably takes a few years to
complete, he said. This makes the
balls worth $3, 000-$5, 000 with all 25
teammate signatures, he added. Its not
as easy anymore to get that many sig-
natures though, as some players are on
contract with companies or will only
sign a certain part of the ball, he said.
This year sales have been very good
on playoff T-shirts as well as National
League Championship T-shirts, said
Jim Bernardini, co-owner of Leftys
Sports Collectibles in Burlingame.
We have quite a few Giants (players)
in the store here throughout the year,
Bernardini wrote in an email. And we
have had flash sales on Twitter and
Facebook for Giants autographs and
other items.
Meanwhile, at Sports Authority in
San Mateo, everything Giants has
been selling across the board, a repre-
sentative at the store said. The store
carries Giants hats, shorts, jerseys,
tailgating gear and other novelty gear
like lanyards.
All in all, spikes in sales of Giants
gear really helps these types of local
If they win, we win, Rohatch said.

51 Wonderment
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Friends and relatives
will question what you are trying to accomplish. Your
impulsive nature and effervescent disposition will
attract attention and bring about a personal challenge.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Its vital that
you keep meticulous records of your personal
expenditures and assets. You work hard, but money
has a way of slipping through your ngers if you
become too complacent.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You will have to
decide whether a romantic relationship has become
too one-sided. If you do not share the same depth of
feeling, a serious discussion is in order.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Trust your intuition if
something doesnt feel right, and make the necessary
alterations. Use discretion, and refrain from being too
forthcoming with your opinions to avoid being put in a
vulnerable position.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) An unusual creative
project will get you heading in a new direction. Not only
will you make new acquaintances, but you will also
discover abilities and skills you didnt know you had.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) Find a quiet corner
where you can reect on your personal life and explore
your emotions. Soul-searching will give you a better
understanding of your motivations, needs and wants.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Let your charm lead the
way. New friendships will develop if you mingle. Attend
events that bring you into contact with those who
share your favorite pastimes.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Read the ne print.
Make sure you understand whats included and what
isnt. Its up to you to be diligent and to ask questions
before you sign on the dotted line.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) You may be feeling
anxious or temperamental. You wont be helping
anyone if you fly off the handle. Keep your opinions
to yourself for now.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Things will improve if
you work alone. You will accomplish more without
distractions or interruptions and if you eliminate jobs
that have been put on hold for too long.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Take advantage of
your high energy and clear thinking so you will be
able to accomplish your goals and open up time to
do things you enjoy.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You will face ups and
downs regarding family matters. Listen to complaints
and work to rectify the problems that exist before they
have a chance to escalate. Its essential to cooperate.

with winter approaching and conserving
indoors harder than letting ones lawn go
The SPUC issued a 10 percent voluntary
reduction request to nearly 2. 6 million cus-
tomers in San Mateo, San Francisco and
Santa Clara counties, after Gov. Jerry
Browns drought declaration in response to
2013 being the driest year on record.
The utility asked customers to reach its
goal by the end of the year and, despite a
midyear update that unveiled disappointing
savings, consumers were able to reach the
year-end target two months in advance,
SFPUC spokesman Tyrone Jue said.
Our customers throughout our service
territory really stepped up this summer and
exceeded the 10 percent conservation goal
to make up for that lost time earlier in the
year, Jue said. I want to add the caution
though, that water savings is exactly like a
bank account. If we stop conserving
now that can quickly erode and go the other
direction. So our message is to continue to
conserve, be vigilant, because this drought
is not over.
The SFPUCs 10 percent voluntary
request remains in place and although cus-
tomers deserve recognition for their
efforts, further orders and possibly even
mandatory rationing could be initiated if
the winter snowpack proves minimal, Jue
The SFPUC continues to work closely
with its retail and wholesale customers to
push the need to conserve through the fall
and winter to make sure people dont start
turning up the sprinklers in light of the
good news, Jue said.
Water providers throughout the Bay Area
amped up conservation messages to cus-
tomers over the summer after the SFPUCs
midyear update showed customers werent
on track to meeting goals.
In June, consumers had only conserved
1. 4 billion gallons of water, or just 17 per-
cent of the suppliers year-end goal, caus-
ing the SFPUC and the Bay Area Water
Supply and Conservation Agency to dis-
cuss potentially issuing mandated
But hopeful the summer would provide
greater opportunities to conserve outdoors,
which accounts for the largest residential
water use, no mandates were issued.
As winter nears and people naturally cut
back on outdoor irrigation, conservation
efforts must shift indoors. However, short
of not showering or washing dishes and
laundry, theres only so much one can do to
cut back indoor water use. Therefore, Jue
said its critical consumers continue to pre-
pare now and plan for an elongated drought.
The 10 percent goal is still in place until
we feel comfortable that were out of this
drought. Its possible, depending on
how the winter turns out if we dont receive
enough snow and rain, its possible we still
may need to take additional measures to
stretch our water supply. Every drop we
save means we have that much more that we
can depend on for the long run, Jue said.
We just really hope we can keep it up and
we can always do better. Thats got to be our
motto, and the drought is the new norm.

NEW DELHI Indian women still face
some of the worlds worst inequality in
access to health care, education and work,
despite years of rapid economic growth,
accordi ng t o a survey of 142 nat i ons
released Tuesday.
The annual Gender Gap Index by the
Geneva-based Worl d Economi c Forum
showed India falling to 114th place, after
being ranked 101st out of the 136 coun-
tries surveyed last year. That puts India
bel ow ot her fast -devel opi ng nat i ons
i ncl udi ng Sout h Afri ca, ranked 18t h,
China at 87 and Brazil at 71.
Nordic nations led the world in promot-
ing equality of the sexes, as they have for
many years, wi t h Icel and, Fi nl and,
Norway, Sweden and Denmark occupying
the top five spots.
The United States climbed three places
to 20th, thanks to a narrowing wage gap
and more women occupyi ng pol i t i cal
Achieving gender equality is obviously
necessary for economi c reasons. Onl y
those economies who have full access to
all their talent will remain competitive
and will prosper, Klaus Schwab, WEF
founder and executive chairman, said in a
Yemen, Pakistan and Chad remained at
the bottom of the index, which ranks
countries based on data reported by inter-
national organizations in four categories:
health and survival, access to education,
economic opportunity and political par-
Overall, the report said gender equality
is improving worldwide, with 105 coun-
tries becoming more equal since the forum
launched the index in 2006 and health and
education access being the most egalitari-
an across the globe.
Much of the progress on gender equali-
ty over the last 10 years has come from
more women entering politics and the
workforce, said the reports lead author,
Saadi a Zahi di , who heads t he forums
Gender Parity Program.
India ranked a high 15th for female
political participation, with some of its
most powerful positions in government
recently occupied by women.
But it was among the bottom 20 in terms
of income, literacy, work force participa-
tion and infant survival.
China also has a low ratio of girls born
to boys, which contributed to the country
fal l i ng 18 spot s. The hi ghest -ranki ng
Asian country was the Philippines, in
ninth place.
Experts cautioned that the index, pitting
countries against one another, may not
reflect improvements on the ground. For
example, while Ireland improved its over-
all score slightly, it still fell from sixth to
eighth place as Nicaragua, Rwanda and
Denmark moved up.
Indian voters fed up with the corruption
and inequalities that have come with eco-
nomic growth gave new Prime Minister
Narendra Modis party an enormous elec-
tion mandate this year after he campaigned
on promises of a fairer society and a
revived economy. Economic growth had
been averaging 8 percent for a decade
before slumping to below 5 percent in
recent years.
Modi has also spoken publicly against
rape and violence against women, giving
many people hope for change after decades
of political apathy in addressing concerns
about womens safety, high rates of mater-
nal mortality and female infanticide. The
Gender Gap Index placed India second to
l ast , ahead of Armeni a, i n t erms of
womens health care and survival.
Modis government has said it plans to
launch a program next month to improve
the health of pregnant woman and empow-
er young girls.
The intent looks good so far from the
prime minister, but its too soon to say,
said Ranjana Kumari, director of the Delhi-
based Center for Social Research, who
called for more effort in guaranteeing that
the nations wealth is used to benefit
women and the poor.
There is no natural trickle down. India
needs legislation to make sure that hap-
pens, she said.
Indias sex ratio for children under 7 has
fallen to its worst level since the country
gained independence in 1947, with 914
girls born for every 1, 000 boys. It is ille-
gal for medical workers to reveal the sex
of a child before birth, to prevent families
from aborting female babies.
Activists in India also said that while
theyve noted some progress in boosting
the number of Indian girls in primary
school, the overall lack of safety was still
preventing many from traveling for high-
er education or taking jobs far from home.
Others were simply not getting credit for
the work they were doing, such as farming
on land that is owned by a man.
The thing that worries me the most is
the work situation, because girls are get-
ting fewer skills than boys, and so they
have fewer opportunities than boys, said
Renana Jhabwala, national coordinator
for t he Sel f-Empl oyed Womens
Associ at i on i n Indi a. Women are an
important part of the work force, they
contribute to GDP, but they really are not
regarded as workers and producers. Its
never become a political issue, and that
has to change.
India slides, U.S. gains in gender equality ranking
Achieving gender equality is obviously necessary for
economic reasons. Only those economies who have full access
to all their talent will remain competitive and will prosper.
