World cybersecurity leaders call for cooperation By Martha Mendoza


STANFORD ST ANFORD — Governm Governments ents and businesses spend $1 trillion a year for global cybersecurity,, but unlike wartime casualties cybersecurity or oil spills, there’s no clear idea what the total losses are because few will admit they’ve been compromised. Cybersecurity

leaders from more than 40 countries are gathering at Stanford University this week to consider tackling that information gap by creating a single, trusted entity that would keep track of how much hackers steal. Chinese Minister Cai Mingzhao acknowledged there are issues of trust to overcome — with some U.S. cybersecurity firms pointing to attacks coming from the

Chinese military. But he said countries must work together. “In cyberspace, all countries face the same problems and ultimately share the same fate,” he said. Mingzhao also urged counterparts to establish new international rules for behavior in cyberspace, a move State Department cyberissues coordinator Christopher Painter said isn’t necessary.

cent, followed by Johnson with 2,392 or 23.66 percent and Grocott who secured 2,121 votes or 20.98 percent. The three Bob Grassilli grabbed the top spots from the first reporting of ballots and never shifted during the evening. “I think it shows that honestly I try to work with everybody. I got endorsem*nts, walked 2,500 houses and tried to reach out to everybody and tried to listen to all sides,” Grassilli said.

Grocott, a home and landscape architect who served as mayor in 2005 and 2012, a term he split with Grassilli, campaigned on Matt Grocott the need for e m p l o y e e retirement benefit reform and open labor negotiations. Grocott felt that platform along with his prior council record combined helped convince voters to keep him in office. That said, as election results came in, Grocott said the anticipation never gets old or eas-

ier. “It’s always butterflies,” he said. But now he said it’s time to knuckle down and get to work. Grassilli, an eight-year Cameron councilman, Johnson John son also took aim at city finances and suggested reviewing utility rates like garbage. Johnson, head of the Economic Development Advisory

Reed, Stone and Lieberman win in Belmont By Samantha Weigel DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Eric Reed and Charles Stone will be the two fresh faces to sit alongside incumbent Warren Lieberman on the Belmont City Council, the city’s voters decided yesterday. With 21.2 percent of the vote, Reed was the highest vote-getter, according to semi-official results from the San Mateo County Elections Office. Reed said he felt

honored to be voted onto the council and that it was a reward after narrowly losing by 11 votes to current Belmont Mayor C h r i s t i n e Wozniak two Eric Reed years ago. This was the first time Charles Stone ran for an

Assemblyman and gun-rights advocate to challenge Brown By Juliet Williams THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO — Republican Assemblyman Tim Donnelly on Tuesday announced his 2014 bid for California governor, wading into a race against Gov. Jerry Brown despite the incumbent’s seemingly unstoppable money and campaign machinery. Donnelly, a gun-rights advocate, outspoken critic of illegal immigration and social conservative, said he is unfazed by a state electorate that leans far to his political left. He says his “guerrilla grass-roots” campaign will offer voters an alternative to the high taxes and what he calls government interference offered by Brown and his fellow Democrats. “I can unite the divided majority that makes up California: people who work hard, who play by the rules and just want to be left alone by their government,” Donnelly, 47, said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. Yet his candidacy, along with that of former lawmaker and Lt. Gov. Abel Maldonado, a moderate Republican, is unlikely to receive a warm welcome from the GOP establishment. After decades of sinking registration numbers, the party has sought to rebrand itself so it can appeal to a wider variety of voters, including Latinos. Many party delegates had hoped to shift the party to the political center and keep the focus off the divisive issues that have been central to Donnelly’s previous campaigns, including his history as a former Minuteman border enforcer.

Mohr tops vote for community college district Incumbent Holober Holober back in offi office ce too,voter too, voterss weigh weigh in on school races races By Angela Swartz DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Longtime educator Tom Mohr came away with the most votes in the race for the San Mateo County Community College District Board of Trustees, with 42.8 percent of the vote. Incumbent Richard Richard Holober, Holober, 61, received 38.6 percent of the vote to snag the second open seat on the board, according to semi-official election results from the San Mateo County Elections Office. George Yang came away with 11.5 percent of the vote and J. Samuel Diaz took 7.1 percent of the vote. The vacant seat that longtime trustee Helen Hausman left this past spring was up for grabs, along with Holober’s seat. Mohr, 78, said his point of

focus going into office is improving the completion and graduation rates, but knows it’s not the kind of matter you change substantially Tom Mohr in a fortnight. “I feel very good about it (the win),” said Mohr, a former science teacher, high school principal, San Mateo Union High School District superintendent and president of Cañada College. “I wanted very much to continue my association with the college district.” Mohr said he was surprised by the margin of his win. “I didn’t know what to expect,” he said. “I have worked in every

part of the county over the years and I don’t know if that made a difference in those numbers or not.” This is Holober’s fifth Richard term on the Holober board. “I’m very pleased and look forward to serving another term,” Holober said. “The issue that we will be addressing, simply because it is happening right now, is the accreditation review. Beyond that, we’re moving into new environment after five years of cuts, we will now be able to restore programs and offer new programs; it’s an exciting time.”

Other county school board races in the Daily Journal coverage area included victories by incumbents Alan Sarver with 35.3 percent and Christopher Thomsen with 33 percent of the votes for two seats on the Sequoia Union High School District Board of Trustees, according to the semi-official final results.

U.S. ballot measures MARIJUANA AND ALC ALCOHOL OHOL COLORADO:Voters approved a 25 percent tax on newly legal recreational marijuana to fund school construction.Opponents argued the tax rate would benefit black market sales. MAINE:Voters in Portland,Maine’s largest city,declared victory on a measure to legalize possession of recreational amounts of marijuana. MICHIGAN:Voters in Ferndale,Jackson and Lansing approved proposals offering some legal protection to users of small amounts of marijuana. UTA TAH H:Residents in the small town of Hyde Park are voting on whether to allow beer sales in a proposal that has divided the conservative,mostly Mormon city.Hyde Park is among a handful of dry cities left in the state,and the ordinance would only allow the sale of beer with the alcohol content of 3.2 percent.

SECESSION COLORADO:Voters in 11 largely rural counties are deciding on

a mostly symbolic effort to form a 51st state called North Colorado because of what supporters call a disconnect with urban areas.The Legislature and Congress would have to approve the creation of a new state,something considered unlikely.As of around midnight,at least six of the counties had voted against the proposal.

GAMBLING NEW YORK:New York voters bet big on casino gambling as an economic energy shot,agreeing to let seven Las Vegas-style gaming palaces be built around the state,including eventually in New York City. MASSACHUSETTS:Voters in Palmer rejected Mohegan Sun’s plan for a $1 billion resort casino and entertainment complex. And Suffolk Downs says it will reassess plans to build a resort casino at the 78-year-old thoroughbred race track after voters in a Boston neighborhood rejected its proposal and residents of a neighboring community approved it.

ASTRODOME’S FUTURE TEXAS:Voters reject TEXAS:Voters rejected ed a plan plan to authori authorize ze bonds bonds to turn the the Houston Astrodome, the world’s first multipurpose domed stadium, into a giant convention and event center center and exhibition space.The outcome means the stadium is likely to be torn down.

MINIMUM WAGE WASHINGTON STATE: Early returns showed voters in the small Seattle suburb of SeaTac were passing a measure that would raise the minimum wage for workers at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and nearby large hotels to $15 an hour. Washington state already has the highest minimum wage at $9.19. NEW JERSEY: Voters approved a constitutional amendment raising the state’s minimum wage by $1,to $8.25 an hour,and to provide for automatic cost-of-living increases,as 10 other states already do.

HEALTH HEAL TH AND ENVIRONMENT MAINE:Residents of South Portland rejected a proposal aimed at blocking the flow of tar sands oil from western Canada to the city.Environmentalists say the thick,gooey oil is more difficult to clean up than conventional crude oil, contains harmful chemicals and releases more greenhouse gases. Supporters of a pipeline say a ban would hamper the growth of existing petroleum-based businesses. WASHINGTON STATE: A measure that would require mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods was failing in early returns.Washing ton would be the first state to put such requirements in place,and the campaign has shaped up to be one of the costliest in state history.

GAY RIGHTS MICHIGAN: Residents of the Detroit suburb of Royal Oak approved an ordinance making it illegal to discriminat discriminate e based on sexual orientation and a number of other factors.

SCHOOL FUNDING COLORADO: A kindergarten-through-12th-grade kindergarten-through-12th-grade schoolfinance overhaul was rejected;it would have increased income taxes about $1 billion a year and revived a progressive income tax structure abandoned in the 1980s.


Councilman joins water board Tw T wo in incu cumb mben ents ts al also so re re-e -ele lect cted ed to Be Belm lmon ontt-ba base sed d di dist stri rict ct By Samantha Weigel DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Belmont Councilman Dave Warden will be join ing incu mben ts Al Stuebing and Betty Linvill on the Mid-Peninsula Water Water District Board to serve the small Belmont-based district, voters decided yesterday. Challenger Mike Malekos almost walked onto the board in an uncontested election before Warden threw his hat in the ring.

Dave Warden

Warden, former mayor for of Belmont whothree-time served on the City Council 12 years, rolled in first with 31.2 percent of the vote. He gave up his position to run for a seat on the water board at the last minute because he said he couldn’t stand to see it go uncontested. He’s grateful that the voters and his community recognized that he could continue to serve in the best interest of the ratepayers, Warden said. Linvill came in second with 25.2 percent

Betty Linvill

of the vote. This was the first time she had to run for a seat since she walked on six years ago, Linvill said. “I’m proud to be elected and I feel an enormous responsibility to continue to serve the community,” Linvill said. This was the second time Stuebing was reelected after coming in third with 23.4 percent of the vote. Mike Malekos, a former Belmont finance commissioner with 18 years of utility experience, lost with 20.3 percent of the vote. All the candidates generated good ideas and,

although the election process stirred up issues, it turned into a positive thing with which the board will move forward, Stuebing said. Company oversight was at the core of the election after a recent embezzlement scandal in Al Stuebing which former employee Catherine Abou-Remeleh allegedly embezzled more than $200,000 over a three-year period but was caught after suffering a stroke. The small 18-employee operation has an annual $9 million budget and more than $17 million in assets. Working out thorough bookkeeping and budgeting is a must, Warden said previously. He plans to look at

Christie cruises cruises in New Jersey Jersey, McAuli McAuliff ffee wins Virginia By Steve Peoples and Philip Elliott THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ASBURY ASBU RY PARK, N.J. — The 2016 overtones were clear in this year’s two most high-profile elections. Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s resounding re-election victory in Democratic-leaning New Jersey sets the opening argument for a possible White House run while Terry Terry McAuliffe’s gubernatorial victory gives fellow Democrats — if not his confidante Hillary Rodham Clinton, herself — a road map for success in the pivotal presidential swing-voting state.

Christie became the first Republican to earn more than 50 percent of the New Jersey vote in a quarter-century. McAuliffe is the first member of the party occupying the White House to become Virginia governor since 1977. Among a slate of offChris Christie year balloting from coast to coast, New York City voters also elected Bill De Blasio, making him the first Democrat to lead the nation’s largest city since 1989.

Colorado agreed to tax marijuana at 25 percent, and Houston rejected turning the Astrodome into a convention hall, likely dooming it to demolition. Alabama Republicans chose the establishment-backed Terry McAuliffe Bradley Byrne over a tea party-supported rival in a special congressional runoff election in the conservative state.

CPUC fines fines PG&E $8.1M for weld weld inspecti inspection on violations violations BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

The California Public Utilities Commission in San Francisco Tuesday issued a staff citation with an $8.1 million fine to PG&E for allowing a contractor to conduct inadequate X-ray tests on natural gas pipeline welds.

The citation said PG&E fired the contractor and conducted new tests on that line, and also conducted an internal review that found 224 previous instances where the same contractor violated the requirement. The planned $8.1 million fine is for the 224 previous violations. PG&E has 10 days to either pay the penalty or begin an appeal process before a CPUC administrative administrat ive law judge. Asked whether the utility plans to appeal, PG&E spokeswoman Brittany Chord said, “We are reviewing the decision and will

respond accordingly.” Jack Hagan, the director of the commission’s safety and enforcement division, said in a statement, “It is totally unacceptable that prior to March of this year — two and a half years after the San Bruno tragedy — PG&E could employ contractors for important testing that would do such shoddy work. “Still more unacceptable is that PG&E would do such poor quality control of their contractors,” Hagan said. In San Bruno, a pipeline rupture, explosion and fire killed eight people in 2010.

Fast-food subsidies St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Other voices


s fast food so vital to the nation that taxpayers should spend $7 billion a year to supplement the industry’ss profits? Imagine the outcry industry’ if that was proposed. And yet a study by economists at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana Champaign-Urb ana and the University of California at Berkeley’ Berkeley’ss Labor Center says it’s already happening. Seven billion dollars a year is what it costs taxpayers for Medicaid, food stamps and the other public assistance programs for fast-food workers who are paid poverty-level wages. Asecond report, “Super-Sizing Public Costs” by the National Employment Law Project, said low wages and missing benefits at the 10

largest fast-food companies in the country cost taxpayers about $3.8 billion a year. Another way to look at it: McDonald’s posted $1.5 billion in third-quarter profits. Taxpayers paid $1.2 billion last year for public assistance to the McDonald’s workforce. That’s $300 million per quarter, a 20 percent contribution to the company’s bottom line. It’s enough to give you indigestion. The “Fast Food” researchers calculated that the cost to Missouri taxpayers, where about 49 percent of fastfood workers receive public assistance, is about $146 million a year. Post-Dispatch reporter Kavita Kumar wrote wrote Tuesday that All an

MacNeill, a Webster MacNeill, Webster University political economist, said the public cost was probably underestimated. That’s because it did not include managers and people who work fewer than 10 hours a week. The study also looked at only five of the largest federal public assistance programs, excluding other federal and state programs that would have pushed the figures higher, MacNeill said. By under-paying under-paying employees, companies push their real cost of doing business onto the public at large. This can be called corporate welfare. Or socialism. But not capitalism. Fast-food workers should be paid a living wage. The corporations that hire them must stop relying on the public for anything more than buying the occasional burger burger..

Letters to the editor In defense of McDougald Editor, I write in defense of Chuck McDougald’s recent column headlined “The Affordable Care Act Conspiracy Theory” (Nov. 2 issue of the Daily Journal) suspecting that at least one of your “progressive” readers will write in to dismiss him as a kook. He is no such thing, and conspiracy theories are sometimes right. The piece is well reasoned and backed with facts. Mr. McDougald’s speculations about the motives of the people behind Obamacare are quite plausible. It’s obvious by now that no one person ever knew the contents, much less the implications, of all its 906 pages. It’s obvious that the law will need major revisions, and soon. It’s no stretch at all to believe that the instigators of Obamacare have seen it all along as a throw-away stepping stone to a “single payer” system — a euphemism for a forcible political power grab. Many of them have said as much publicly. Should they succeed in capturing health care, it’s likely these “progressives” will launch further attacks on what remains of our freedom and prosperity.

Not such good sports Editor, People in America need to be aware of who they are following in professional sports. The arrests arrests of New New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez for murder a couple of months ago and 49er Aldon Smith for DUI as well as other various charges recently highlight my point. From Ben Roethlisberger in the NFL NF L to Kobe Bryant in the NBA, how many times have these sports stars been arrested for the most serious charges in society: rape and murder? How often are their accusers called gold diggers, and how often do they walk out of court exonerated due to their wealth and fame? They are paid a king’s ransom to play a child’s game. All this while concessions and fees at these sporting events become more and more expensive for ordinary people to afford. I propose that there should be a fan strike. Just let these stadiums sit empty for a few weeks weeks.. Maybe this will help these men to clean up their act. Patrick Field Palo Alto

How we compete!


he American mind in particular has been trained to equate success with victory, to equate doing well with beating someone.” — Eliot Aronson. Competition is running amok in our culture in many ways. It’s like a national religion and to question the advisability of extreme greediness to compete and win is considered by many to be un-American. Competition permeates our culture so thoroughly that we take it for granted, like it’s the natural order of things. After all, our free-enterprise system depends upon it. Capitalism depends on us to judge our self-worth by how much more we have than the other guy — more money, prestige, control, beauty beauty,, strength, trophies, etc. When you think of the concepts that are akin to competition, such as aggression, greed, envy envy,, distrust, conflict, violence, we do not see a pretty picture of human striving. When you think about how the idea of free enterprise has been distorted by leveraged buyouts, takeovers, unscrupulous tactics relied on by corporate leaders to gain the advantage, or to make CEOs rich or to gain political favor, or to chase that encompassing fetish, expansion, you can see where competition can easily be turned into a monster. And we wonder why we have so much trouble living together with love and compassion and in peace. So how competitive are you?

Some weak earnings reports stall market NEW NE W YOR YORK K — The stock market is taking a break from its record-breaking run.

The market is still close to record levels after a surge that has put the Standard & Poor’s 500 index on track for its best performance since 2009. Stocks have advanced this year as the Federal Reserve kept up its stimulus program to help the U.S. economy recover. Investors are struggling, however, to find more catalysts to push the market higher. Investors already expect the Fed to keep up its stimulus until at least next year, and company earnings may start to flag if economic growth remains in the doldrums. “We’re going to run out of steam here,” said Scott Wren, a senior equity

In government bond trading, the yield on the 10-year note climbed to 2.67 percent from 2.60 percent on Monday. The yield rose after a private survey showed that hiring and sales increased in the U.S. services sector last month. That suggests the sector wasn’t affected by the partial government shutdown. The report measures growth at companies that employ 90 percent of the workforce, including retail, construction, health care and financial services.

Tesla shares drop as 3Q falls short By Dee-Ann Durbin


DETROI DETR OIT T — Tesla Motors’ Motors’ high-flying stock tumbled 12 percent in after-hours trading Tuesday after the electric car maker’s third-quarter results fell short of expectations. Tesla said it sold just over 5,500 of its Model S sedans in the July-September period, which was a record for the automaker but lower than some analysts had predicted. Barclays analyst Brian Johnson, for example, had expected Tesla to deliver 5,820 cars during the quarter. In a conference call after its earnings release, CEO Elon Musk said the company’s production has been constrained by its battery supplies, but that should ease next year thanks to a recent deal with Panasonic Corp. that increases battery shipments to Tesla.

“It doesn’t make sense to amplify demand if we can’t meet that demand with production,” Musk said. “We have to figure out how to ramp up faster.” Musk also said the company is looking into building its own battery plant, likely with a partner that he didn’t identify. “That factory would most likely be in North America, but we are investigating other options as well,” Musk said. Musk also told analysts that due to the battery cell shortage, Tesla was shipping cars to Europe that could have been sold in North America. “I think we could sustain 20,000 cars a year in North America and maybe more than that,” he said. During the quarter, Tesla said it invested heavily in its network of U.S. and European charging stations and in opening new stores. The company’s development costs increased as it prepares for next year’s planned launch of its Model X crossover.

Report:Apple cuts cost to make iPad Air by 13 percent SAN FRANCISCO — Apple seems to have trimmed the bill for making its latest iPad along with the tablet computer’s width and weight.The iPad Air that sells for $499 costs Apple $274 to make, based on an analysis released Tuesday by the research firm IHS Inc. That’s a 13 percent decrease from the estimated $316 that it cost Apple to make the thirdgeneration iPad introduced last year. The iPad Air went on sale last week. IHS buys various devices and then takes them apart to assess how much the parts cost. “While the iPad Air slims down in size, the profit margins ar e getting fatter,” said Andr Andrew ew Rassweiler, IHS’s senior director of cost benchmarking services, in a statement. Apple Inc. declined to comment Tuesday. But Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer assured analysts in a conference call last month that Apple “is going to work really hard to get down the cost curves” of its products.

Business briefs Pandora listening up in face of iTunes Radio SAN FRANCISCO — People listened to Pandora’s Internet radio service for a collective 1.47 billion hours in October, up 18 percent from a year ago, in the face of the launch iTunes Radio. The figure, released by Pandora Media Inc.’s Chief Financial Officer Michael Herring at an investor conference Monday, is Pandora’s second-highest monthly level. It had 1.49 billion hours in March, the last month before it imposed a 40-hour-per-month cap on free listening on mobile devices. It lifted the cap on Sept. 1, two weeks before Apple Inc. launched iTunes Radio. Pandora’s active listeners fell to 70.9 million from 72.7 million in September. About a month after its mid-September launch, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that 20 million people had used iTunes Radio to listen to more than a billion songs.

In his first year as head coach of the Cañada men’s basketball team, Mike Reynoso is trying to accomplish something very tricky — especially at the community college level. Ayear after finishing with a No. 6 ranking in the state with a 20-6 record, the Colts went in the complete opposite direction last season, winning only five games and dropping 18 (11 of those in Coast Conference play). So, at a level of basketball that is all about constant change, the Colts hired who they’re hoping will be the program’s constant for years to

goals scored. If the Knights won by two goals, another tiebreaker would be needed to determine who would compete in the play-in game. A Hillsdale win by three three or more goals, the Knights tie for the title, but its season would continue. Did the Knights know all the math involved in Tuesday’s regular-season finale? “I did,” said Hillsdale coach Renato Hodzic. “I said we needed to win by three. The guys had that in their minds.” The Knights did their coach even better, winning by five, 10-5.

of co-champions. As the Knights sent Hodzic into the pool — the customary customary celebration for all water polo champions — the Mills team waited, dejected, to go through the post-match handshake. Hillsdale (1 3-1 PAL Ocean) jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead and never trailed the rest of the way. Mills (13-1) tied the match at 2 with 2:46 left to play in the first period, but had to play catch-up the rest of the way as the Knights responded by scoring four unanswered goals to take a 6-2 lead at halftime.

Tigers closes in on piece of Ocean title, CCS berth By Terry Bernal DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

Terra Nova is a win away from punching its ticket to the Central Coast Section playoffs for the first time in four years. The Tigers (12-1 Ocean Division, 19-2 overall) kept their perfect second-half record in tact yesterday by downing El Camino (2-11, 4-12) in four sets – 25-23, 25-15, 15-25, 25-20. With one game remaining in the regular

season, Terra Nova is tied atop the Peninsula Athletic League Ocean Division with Sequoia. If, after Thursday’s season finale, the two teams finish tied for the top spot, they will share a co-championship. However, Terra Nova would receive the Ocean Division’s one guaranteed automatic CCS bid by virtue of heads-up set play. Terra Nova has taken four sets from its fellow division front-runner this season, having dropped a Sept. 24 matchup 3-1, before sweeping the Cherokees 3-0 Oct. 17.

Terra Nova isn’t taking its good standing for granted. Assistant coach Kari Trainor knows anything can happen in Thursday’s season finale at Half Moon Bay, especially since the Tigers will go into the contest without sophom*ore libero Katie McKay McKay.. McKay sprained her ankle in practice last week. The Tigers are hoping she will be ready to take the court next week for the CCS opener Nov. Nov. 13. “She’s out for Thursday’s game,” Trainor said. “Obviously, we hope to have her back,

because it’s single-elimination if we make it to CCS. She’s an important dynamic for us.” McKay’s replacement, sophom*ore Kristiana Wolf-Blake, Wolf-Blake, put forth a strong allaround effort yesterday. She got off to an ambitious start, tabbing four kills in the opening set. However, she soon backed off to leave the kill shots to Terra Terra Nova’s Nova’s heavy hitters, and quickly dialed it in on defense.

CSM puts loss behind,focuses on De Anza Word around the College of San Mateo football locker room is that the page has been turned. And without a doubt, it’s the most disappointing and disheartening page of the 2013 season so far. The Bulldogs did almost everything right in an absolute battle with No. 1 Butte College in Oroville last Saturday. Offensively, they racked up 400 yards of offense against the sta-

sive coordinator. “They fought all the way down to the final snap. After the game, they carried themselves with class. They picked their heads up, they shook hands, tipped their hats to a very good Butte team. There is no regret with those guys. Those guys left it all out on the field. It was a slug fest. It was as physical a football game as I’ve been involved with in a long, long time. It’s what you coach in this conference for. It’s what you coach in this league for. It’s for games like that. I’m very, very proud of our guys. “What I love about what we did in that game

NorCal schedule requires that. “They’re more pissed off than anything,” Tulloch said. “We talked about how in 2009, the same thing happened — we lost a conference game and those guys went on a run, that team went on a run. They were pissed off and won every game in conference there on out. We ended in a three-way tiebreaker ... and we went on and advanced. Those guys know there’s definitely a potential it can go down there. Our guys know what’s in front of us and where we are. They’re going to be prepared on Saturday.” Saturday is a matchup against De Anza,

us all kinds of problems. … So, there isn’t isn’t going to be a lack of motivation.” The Dons are led by quarterback Jack Singler, who’s passed for 2,214 yards and 25 touchdowns this year. What makes Singler dangerous though, is perhaps the most dangerous wide receiver tandem in the state. Bryan Fobbs and Tyler Lucas are responsible for 130 of Singler’s Singler’s 180 completions — and over over 1,700 of his yards. “They have a lot of weapons on offense,” Tulloch said. “They have probably the best receiver in the conference (Fobbs). They have

tistically best defense in the NorCal Conference. Defensively, a team coming in averaging over 350 yards of rushing on the ground didn’t hit 100 (if you subtract a couple of quarterback scrambles). But, key turnovers and a big kickoff return for a touchdown in the second half gave CSM it’s first loss of the season 28-20 — this after the Bulldogs were twice thwarted near the goal line in the fourth quarter, the latter of which came on the final play of the game. “They played a great game,” said Tim Tulloch, CSM assistant head coach and defen-

was, a couple of things. They jumped out on us and we fought back, on the road. You wish you could have the kick return back. That a big one, because they didn’t score on our defense in the second half. We shut them out in the second half. They scored on a trick play. Some of those things, you wish you could have back. All and all, the guys executed.” That said, it seems unproductive to dissect CSM’s loss and take a page from their book. And in a lot of ways, if you’re the Bulldogs, you have to put that loss in the rearview mirror and move on since the toughness of the

which is among the most pass-happy teams in the NorCal conference. But the Dons are coming off a 35-31 loss to Santa Rosa. The Bear Cubs outscored the Dons 21-0 in the fourth quarter to win that game. But despite its 3-5 record, De Anza isn’t a team CSM is taking lightly — especially since it was the Dons who beat the Bulldogs in overtime last year. “There is no question — those guys remember it and they remember it well,” Tulloch said. “We all do. That one was a tough one just because the best player on the field was their quarterback and he did a great job and they gave

another receiver from Penn State. They’re going to throw it around. They’re going to go five-wide. They’re going to run a bunch of personnel groups . They’re going to shift and do a lot of things to try and stretch you. Defensively, they’re going to pressure and blitz you. We’ve We’ve definitely have our eyes on De Anza. The page has been turned. It was turned on Monday. And, we’re going to have those guys ready to go play.” Kick off for Saturday’s clash between CSM and De Anza is scheduled for 1 p.m. at the College of San Mateo.

Local sports roundup Girls’golf For the second year in a row, San Mateo golfer Aman Sangha qualified for the state golf tournament, following a fourth-place finish at the Northern California tournament Monday at Spring Creek Country Club in Ripon. Sangha shot a 4-over 77 to finish in a two-way tie for fourth place with Vista del Lago’s Emilee Hoffman. The state championship tournament will be held at Quail Run Golf Club in Carmel Nov. Nov. 20. 2 0. Sangha, a sophom*ore who won her second consecutive Peninsula Athletic League championship and finished fifth at the Central Coast Section tournament, had an up-anddown day at Quail Run. She was 1under after nine holes, but struggled on the back nine, with four bogeys and a double bogey against just one birdie. She bogeyed the par-4 second hole, but had birdies on the par-3 seventh and par-5 ninth. She followed that with a pair of pars on holes 10 and 11, 11 , but fell back to even with a bogey on the par-3 12th. She bounced right back and got back to 1-under with a birdie on the par-5 13th, but quickly gave that shot back with a bogey on the par-4 par-4 14th . Following a par on the 15th, she closed her round with a pair of bogeys and her double bogey on the 18th hole. Palo Alto’s Michelle Xie captured the Nor Cal crown by shooting an even-par 73. Sangha struggled at the state tournament last year, shooting a 91.

Mercado topped Alondra Garay of Capuchino 6-1, 6-2 in her opener before downing Terra Nova’s Kiana Arciga 6-1, 6-1 to advance to the quarters. The quarterfinal matchups are as follows: No. 1 Liu-Tiemann, No. 2 Sidell-Mercado, No. 3 Siegle-No. 6 Kelly and No. 4 Burgueno-No. 5 Somers. On the doubles side, five of the six seeded teams made it to today’s quarterfinals. The one upset came when No. 6 seed Sally Carlson and Amanda Scandalios (Menlo-Atherton) were knocked off by Sequoia’s Sadie Rhen and Julie Self, 6-7(4), 7-5, 6-3. The rest of the draw went to form with the No. 1 tandem of Mariko Iinuma and Natalie Spievack (Hillsdale), No. 2 Keade Ishikawa and Victoria Sun, No. 3 Alex Harrigan and Lisa Patel, No. 4 Sammy Andrew and Lindy LaPlante and No. 5 Cassidy Sobey and Morgan Watson all made it to the quarterfinals, all winning in straight sets. The other unseeded teams to advance was Carlmont’s Michelle Guan and Zoe Wildman and Burlingame’s Haley Shaffer and Madeline Somers. The quarterfinal matchups are as follows: No. 1 Iinuma-Spievack against Shaffer-Somers; No. 2 Ishikawa-Sun against Guan-Wildman; No. 3 Harrigan-Patel against Rhen-Self and No. 4 Andrew-LaPlante against No. 5 Sobey-Watson. In the West Bay Athletic League championships, Menlo School swept the singles and doubles titles. Liz Yao won her second straight singles crown, winning both her semifinal and finals match in straight sets, dropping a total of three games.


STANFORD — Oregon coach Mark Helfrich and Stanford’s David Shaw shared some laughs when they met for the first time this offseason during an annual Pac-12 Conference meeting. Although they had never talked before, the similar circ*mstances that brought them together made them feel like they had known each other for years. Both had been promoted from offensive coordinator to replace popular predecessors, Chip Kelly and Jim Harbaugh, after each moved on to NFL jobs. “You take over and everybody says, ‘Who?”’ Shaw said. said. “But at at the same time, both of us are coaching lifers that don’t care about what our name means or trying to take the limelight. It’s just about being smart football coaches and recruiting great players and keeping great coaches and giving them a chance to do what they do.” Nobody is questioning either coach’ss credentials this week. coach’ Helfrich has No. 2 Oregon (8-0, 5-0) undefeated heading into

T h u r s d a y n i g h t ’ s matchup at sixth-ranked Stanford (7-1, 5-1) in what has once again shaped up as the Pac-12’s game of the year. All David Shaw Shaw has done is go 30-5 since taking over in 2011, leading the Cardinal to a conference championship and the program’s first Rose Bowl victory in 41 years last season. Both coaches are quick to credit the other for sticking with what worked already and not making any major changes, even if it means not getting the same recognition as their predecessors. Shaw stayed with the power running game and physical defense that Harbaugh built before leaving for the San Francisco 49ers after the 2010 season. And while Kelly is with the Philadelphia Eagles now, Oregon’s up-tempo offense and aggressive approach — faking punts, not punting on fourth down and going for two-point conversions — are still staples in


Sabers 5, Sabers 4

SAN JOSE — Cory Hodgson scored in the fourth round of the shootout and Ryan Miller made 47 saves for the Buffalo Sabres, who overcame a pair of blown third-period leads to get their third win in 17 games this season, 5-4 over the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night. Henrik Tallinder, Cody McCormick, Drew Stafford and Tyler Ennis also scored for the Sabres, who have beaten the Sharks five straight times. Tyler Kennedy and Tomas Hertl scored 70 seconds apart early in the third to erase a two-goal deficit for the Sharks. Tommy Wingels got another equalizer late in the third, but San Jose still lost its third straight game. Marty Havlat also scored and

Antti Niemi made 32 saves. Matt Moulson and Logan Couture each scored in the first round of the shootout, and then Miller stopped three straight shots before Hodgson beat Niemi for the winner. The third period was filled with excitement with the teams combining for five goals starting when Ennis scored Buffalo’s second road power-play goal of the season to make it 3-2. But the Sharks erased that lead in a flash. The first goal came when Joe Pavelski won a faceoff to MarcEdouard Vlasic, whose shot deflected toward Kennedy, who knocked it in for his second goal of the season 3:19 into the period. Then just over a minute later, Hertl took a rebound of Scott

Helfrich’s first season. Helfrich’s “It was very similar in terms of what they’ve done and what we’ve done has been really good and how can we do it a little bit better,” Helfrich said. “Not, ‘How can I come and change this so everyone think s it’s my idea?’ As soon as you start doing that, you lose focus. The biggest thing in all of this is what your players believe in, what they can perform the best, how your program can continue to ascend because of what they do. I think we have a very similar approach in that way.” Both coaches saw no reason to overhaul their programs. They inherited championship contenders led by Heisman Trophy favorites — Marcus Mariota at Oregon, and Andrew Luck at Stanford — in their first season, which brought the added pressure of keeping pace on the national stage. Some changes still had to be made. Shortly after Shaw opened his first spring practice, he noticed some defensive players were not quite as comfortable with him yet, a few maybe even unsure of his abilities.

Sharks lose third in a row



Coaches a mirror of success

Hannan’s and skatedgoal around the net forshot a wraparound that was his ninth of the season. The Sabres appeared on their way to a rare win when Tallinder scored midway through the third and then they had a two-man advantage later in the period. But Jamie McBain hit the post during the 5-on-3, and the Sharks tied it late in the period shortly after a penalty to Marcus Foligno ended. Wingels dove into the crease to knock in the loose puck to tie the game and excite the sellout crowd. What appeared to be a decided mismatch on paper between a Buffalo team that had one regulation win all season, and a San Jose team with just one regulation loss was anything but on ice. The Sabres overcame an early deficit and scored twice in the second period to take a 2-1 lead heading into the third.

VOLLEYBALL Continued from page 11 Terra Nova’s heavy-hitting junior tandem of Ali Vidali and Anna Listmann soldiered through a disjointed team effort. Vidali tabbed a match-high 19 kills, while Listmann totaled 17 kills. The two were actually dead even in the kills department after three sets, until Vidali emerged with seven kills in the decisive Game 4. “Ali is always strong and aggressive,” Trainor said. “She’s our go-to girl.” Terra Nova seemed to be on cruise control in Game 1, but let a 21-16 lead slip away after El Camino senior Caitlyn Ladigan stepped to the service line. Ladigan went on a five-point service run, giving her Colts the lead with back-to-back aces. Listmann staved off an upset by retying the match at 22-22 with a clutch kill, before Terra Nova won the seesaw race to 25. The Tigers committed 10 of their 34

HOOPS Continued from page 11 work that is needed and really dedicated guys — make sure guys are competitors.” Reynoso said. “I want competitors. Talented guys, those come and go. But in the long run, what’s going to win you games, especially at our level, is if you have competitors. And you can always develop players. But you can’t teach — nor should you spend time teaching in college



match errors in Game 1. “[El Camino was] kind of scrappy and sent the ball back, and let us make the mistakes” Trainor said. Vidali showed off her serving prowess in Game 2, going on a five-point run, including three consecutive aces, to give Terra Nova an insurmounta insurmountable ble lead. In Game 3, El Camino answered back when senior Geli Maurille got cooking. The fourth-year varsity senior tallied five of her 13 match kills in the set, and proved once again to be one of the hardest hitters in the Ocean Division this season. El Camino head coach Brittany Formalejo said it has been fun watching Maurille earn the respect of opposing teams because of the sheer velocity with which she hits. “She’s a great player,” Formalejo said. “She’s one of my captains, she has great heart, and she definitely loves the game…. Every game we go into, the other team gets into this shock-face, like: Who is this girl?” At 5-foot-3, Maurille is an unconventional hitter. But she has stepped up to do what-

ever has been asked of her to help her struggling team. According to Formalejo, her star senior does a little bit of everything. That’s a stark contrast from her role with her club team, the Frisco Bay, where Maurille is strictly a libero. Having won jut four games this season, El Camino looked at it as a moral victory to take one set from Terra Nova. “They’re a decent team,” Formalejo said. “I didn’t even go into this thinking we’d win a set. So, I’m glad to see my girls play so well against them.” Terra Nova last advanced to CCS play in 200 9. The Tigers Tigers have not won a CCS match since 1983, when they captured the Div. II crown with a win in the championship round over Salinas.

— effort, hustle and hard work. And that I think is the main thing. Pushing yourself to the limit is basically the type of guy we need to get.” By the sound of things, Cañada might have a couple of those players on its roster now. While Peninsula Athletic League fans will be familiar with a couple of names already, Reynoso pointed to the likes of Nick Martz (Mills) and Jason Garcia as key role players who might assume leadership positions on this young team. Reynoso said the team has four or five guys capable of double-figure scoring and mentioned Marquis Glenn, one of his few

returning sophom*ores, as a key component to the Cañada offense. “I actually like it because there are four or five guys who are capable of scoring 11 a night, or 13 a night,” Reynoso said. “Nobody is going to come out and give us 20 a night. So, in that respect, it’s nice because we’re never going to miss a guy if he doesn’t play that much a certain night. That helps us be a fully capable team as a unit and not a team that relies on one guy.” It then appears that the key to a winning season for the Colts will be their commitment to defense. “We can’t rely on our offense on a night

SMITH Continued from page 11 friends, organization, teammates and everything. And it really says a lot that people care about me outside the field and they care about me as a person.” Smith had been on an indefinite paid leave of absence before being activated to the 53man roster Thursday, two days after he turned himself in to Santa Clara County authorities on weapons charges. He met last Wednesday with team officials. The fearsome pass-rusher is in shape despite a couple of extra pounds gained during his stint at an in-patient treatment center for substance abuse. He was at a facility outside California, he said, while declining to o ffer further details. He said he returned to

the Bay Area on Oct. 28 after entering rehab in late September — and he was away for his 24th birthday Sept. 25. Defensive teammate and fellow linebacker Patrick Willis is among those who sent periodic text messages to Smith during his time away. “Aldon has been a guy since he came in who has been very productive for our defense, has been a playmaker for our defense,” Willis said. “To get him back is a good thing, then, too, with his absence we were able to develop some depth with some of the other guys. It’s really going to be a strong point for us. When you have a guy such as Aldon with his talent, the biggest thing we can do for him is just let him know we’re here for him, let him know that we’re his teammates, but the main thing is just let him grow on his own.” Smith played in a 27-7 home loss to the Colts on Sept. 22 and had five tackles just

two days after he was arrested and jailed on suspicion of DUI and marijuana possession. He apologized for his behavior after the game then later announced he would leave for treatment. San Francisco (6-2) has won five straight games in impressive fashion without him. Also in September, Smith and former teammate Delanie Walker were named in a lawsuit filed in Santa Clara County Superior Court by a Northern California man who said he was shot at a party at Smith’s house on June 29, 2012. Smith, selected seventh overall in the 2011 draft out of Missouri, had previously been arrested on suspicion of DUI in January 2012 in Miami shortly after the 49ers lost in the NFC championship game. Now, Smith is moving forward. He’s thrilled to be reunited with not only his team but also his 10-month-old son, Aulis.

“He looks good, man,” running back Frank Gore said. “I’m a big fan of Aldon, a young guy who has the potential to be one of the best at the position. I’m happy he’s back with the family. I know he can help our team, so that’s great.” While Smith is scheduled for court appearances each of the next two Tuesdays, he expects to be in practice. Smith was charged Oct. 9 with three felony counts of illegal possession of an assault weapon, stemming from that party at his home in June 2012. “Of course, I didn’t want to be away from the sport I love. But it was good for me to get away and get my mind together and work, like I say, just to get to the positive spot I need to be at,” he said. “I caught some of the games, some that were broadcast over there. So I was able to keep up with the guys and chime in here and there and wish them good luck.”

POLO Continued from page 11 The Vikings outscored the Knights 2-1 in the third period, but the Knights closed out the match by scoring three times in the fourth period. Tuesday’s match would have meant nothing, how ever, if not for Hillsdale’s win over Half Moon Bay last Thursday. The Cougars, in third place in the Ocean, gave the Knights everything they could handle before Hillsdale pulled out a 13-11, doubleovertime win. “We knew the game at Half Moon Bay was going to be huge,” Hodzic said. “My guys have been on edge. They’ve been playing championship ball for the last couple days.” That edge helped the Knights weather an


early Mills man-advantage, during which the Vikings came up empty — a preview of things to come for Mills, which went 0 for 9 on the power play. About 30 seconds later, the Knights went a man up and made the Vikings pay as Thomas Durant took a cross-pool pass from Curtis Cassin and buried his shot to give Hillsdale a 1-0 lead. The Knights made it 2-0 just over 40 seconds later when Thomas Mirt came up with a steal near midpool and fed a driving Cassin, who fired home a shot in from the wing. Mills got on the board less than 20 seconds later when Cliff Shaw powered a shot past Hillsdale goalie Tony Pappas, who got a hand on the shot, but couldn’t stop it. The

of his five goals, off an assist from Javier Rosas. Hoffert got his shot off moments before the shot clock expired, giving Hillsdale a 3-2 lead after one period. “[Hoffert] stepped up,” Hodzic said. The Knights then scored all three of the second period’s goals — one from Rosas and a pair from Hoffert. Pappas assisted on two goals and Rosas had the assist on the other. Mills tried to make a move in the third period. The Vikings closed to 6-3 on a goal from Zane Girouard, but Rosas pushed the Knight s’ lead back to to four on a breakaway breakaway goal.

Knights started their celebration. Hodzic was willing to let anyone but Mills’ Grant Peel score, score, who is regarded regarded as the best player in the Ocean Division. The Knights geared their defense around Peel and limited him to only a handful of shots for the entire match. “They have the best player in the league and we planned for him,” Hodzic said. “[Peel’s] “[Peel’ s] an outstanding outside shooter.” Which worked perfectly into Hillsdale’s hands in the presence of Pappas, who is the best goalie in the Ocean Division and whose forte is stopping the outside shot. “Anything outside of five meters, I don’t even worry about. That’s a stop for us,” Hodzic said. “[Pappas] had one of his best games today.” Pappas finished with 14 saves, including six in the fourth period. “Defensively, the guys executed,” Hodzic said. “They wanted it.”

Colleagues cite lack of leaders in Miami ASHBURN, Va. — Eleven seasons into his football career career,, Washin Washin gton Redskins linebacker Nick Barnett figures he has a pretty good sense of the sort of teasing and hazing and horsing around that happens in the typical typic al NFL locker room, especially when it comes to rookies. They’re stuck with $5,000 dinner tabs. They’re told to tote the helmets or pads of older players. They’re held down and given unwanted haircuts or get their eyebrows shaved. What he’s never heard of, Barnett said Tuesday, is the kind of accusations of out-and-out bullying and harassment at the heart of why second-year offensive tackle Jonathan Martin suddenly left the Miami Dolphins a week ago because of emotional distress, and why his linemate, Richie Incognito, was suspended indefinitely by the team. “You have different people, different personalities, different cultures in here, and it’s not going to be the same as in an accountant’s office or Wall Street. Same as our armed forces,” Barnett said, standing at his locker after Washington’s practice. “But every social setting has its standards, and when (you) cross those standards ... especially with a guy who is 6-something-foot tall, 300 pounds ... not coming to practice because he feels bullied or whatever the case is, now we have an

connected to the country’s most popular sports league, they garner quite a bit of attention. During training camp last year, New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara was tossed into a tub of ice water by defensive lineman Jason Pierre-Paul. Amukamara had missed most of training camp with an injury a year earlier as a rookie, so perhaps this was a chance to make up for lost time; a teammate let the world in on the episode with a tweet. “What I went through wasn’t bullying at all. It was just more of fun in the locker room. Of course, nobody’s going to be happy being thrown into a cold tub of water, but ... things can get out of hand sometimes,” Amukamara said this week. Like several other players around the NFL, Amukamara latched onto two particular elements of the Miami situation that moved past normal fun ‘n’games: “Anything that’s racial racial or threatening, I think that’s in the definition of bullying,” he said. Some veterans, such as Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen, consider such happenings a rite of passage they hope won’t disappear entirely — within reason. “Some of the younger guys come in and there’s a sense of entitlement, and you lose that work ethic, you lose that true veteran-led locker room sometimes,” said Allen, who said he’s seen teammates fork over $50,000 or more. “You got to know

natured ribbing. That, they say, was the failure in Miami. “Who was the leaders on that team?” Redskins linebacker London Fletcher said. “I know Jonathan Martin didn’t feel comfortable enough to go to any of the guys, because either you’re encouraging it or you’re just turning a blind eye and allowing the guy to get treated like he was getting treated. trea ted. And that’s that’s the th e biggest thing that disappointed me. ... There was not a veteran guy strong enough to stop what was happening.” The irony, of course, is that Incognito was one of the oldest members of the Dolphins — only one player on the Week 1 roster had been in the league longer — and was voted to one of six spots on the team’s leadership council. “How do you police it if you have your most-esteemed vets doing it?” Washington’s Barnett said. “Other vets have to have the responsibility and step up.” One factor at play in Miami: There is something of a veteran leadership vacuum on the young Dolphins, perhaps in part because the best player, defensive end Cameron Wake, generally is a laid-back guy who is not inclined to assert himself. “The locker room has been fine, as far as I’m concerned,” Wake said Monday, when details of the MartinIncognito case emerged. “I can’t

issue.” While some players said they figure the NFL to make clear certain kinds of locker-room behavior won’t be tolerated, Commissioner Roger Goodell has so far been silent on the matter; a spokesman said the league is “currently engaged in a thorough review of the situation.” The players’ players’ union issued issued a statement Tuesday saying it expects the NFL NF L and teams to “create a safe and professional workplace for all players.” The curtains do get pulled back on this sort of thing in the NFLevery so often and, as with most bits of news

who dealing with. You You can’t can’t treat you’re everyone the same. treat every rookie the same. “Some guys are more sensitive than others.” And there are those who take the whole pecking-order system rather seriously. “In our locker room, it’s simple: Do what we say and you won’t get hazed,” Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas said. “If you don’t, you get thrown in the cold tub or your shirt gets cut up.” Several players said they think it’s up to players to prevent the behavior that goes beyond good-

speak forno anybody else.” While one on the Dolphins was critical of Martin, the Miami players who talked to the media on Monday were far more vocal in defense of Incognito than on behalf of Martin. Dolphins rookie cornerback Will Davis said about Incognito: “He’s a funny guy. Everybody loves him.” Among the many missing details is what — and when — Dolphins coach Joe Philbin knew about the Martin-Incognito relationship, because he did not intervene. Philbin says he was unaware until last weekend, when a representative of Martin’s complained to the team.

Around the nation U.S.home prices rise at slower pace in September

White House sidesteps on‘Obamacare’change By David Espo THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASH ASHING INGTON TON — A measure of U .S. home prices rose only slightly in September from August, a sign that prices are leveling off after big gains earlier this year. Real estate provider CoreLogic said Tuesday that home prices increased 0.2 percent in September from the previous month. That’s sharply lower than the 0.9 percent month-over-month gain in August and well below the 1.8 percent increase in July. Prices still rose 12 percent in September compared with a year ago. Higher mortgage rates and steady price increases began to slow home sales in September. As a result, price gains have cooled off. Mortgage rates are still very low. And the average rate on a 30-year fixed loan has fallen to 4.1 percent in the past month, down from a two-year high of nearly 4.6 percent over the summer. “This deceleration is natural and should help keep market fundamentals in balance over the longer-term,” said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic.

WASHINGTON — Under growing pressure, the administration refused repeatedly to state a position Tuesday on legislation formalizing President Barack Obama’s oft-stated promise that people who like their existing coverage should be allowed to keep it under the new health care law. Senate Democrats spoke dismissively of the proposals, signaling they have no intention of permitting a vote on the issue that marks the latest challenge confronting supporters of “Obamacare.” An earlier controversy appeared to be ebbing on a law that has generated more than its share of them. Even so, one strong supporter of the health care law, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R. I., good-naturedly told an administration official, “Good luck getting through this mess.” Whitehouse spoke to Marilyn Tavenner, the head of the agency deeply involved in implementing the law. She had assured lawmakers that initial flaws with the government’s website were systematically yielding to around-the-clock repair effort.

Deal delays cancellations for state insurance policies By Don Thopmson THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO — California’s insurance commissioner announced an agreement Tuesday with one of the state’s major health insurance companies to delay the cancellation of more than 115,000 individual policies under the new federal health care law. The agreement with Commissioner Dave Jones will let policyholders keep their lower-priced policies through the first three months of 2014.

Blue Shield of California Life and Health Insurance Co. planned to cancel individual and family health insurance policies on Dec. 31. Jones objected that the company gave policy policy holders holders just 90 days’ notice when it should have given six months’ notice. The agreement requires Blue Shield to send new notices to its customers starting Wednesday, letting them know they can keep their individual policies if they wish, at the existing price and with the existing medical provider network.

Hagel warns of dangers in deep cuts to defense By Robert Robert Bur Burns ns THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon is preparing top-to-bottom changes, including a push to limit the growth of military pay, as it adjusts to steep budget cuts and the winding down of war in Afghanistan, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Tuesday. In a speech on U.S. defense priorities, Hagel said that as the Obama administration preserves the military’ military’ss strength it will make it a less prominent tool of foreign policy. That’s not a new goal but one Hagel said is more achievable now that the U.S. is ending more than a decade of foreign conflict and the public is weary of war. He sketched a future focused on investments in space and cyber technologies, missile defense and a strategy that assumes the world will not soon resolve challenges posed by terrorism and “heavily armed” states like North Korea. He advocated a more humble U.S. approach to foreign policy. “Wee must also make a far better effort “W to understand how the world sees us, and why,” he said. “We must listen more.” Cautioning against national arrogance, the former Republican senator from Nebraska and Vietnam combat veteran said “the insidious disease of hubris can undo America’s great strength s. We We also must not fall prey to hubris,” nor to the idea of American decline. Hagel said that since he took office in February he has been intent on finding ways to adapt the nation’s defense pri-


U.S.Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel speaks at a news conference at the Pentagon. orities to the realities created by a rancorous budget debate in Washington that has undermined the Pentagon’s ability to plan ahead. He warned of the impasse’s dangers, including the prospect of nearly $500 billion in defense cuts over 10 years as a result of the forced budget reductions known as sequestration. And he noted that this would be in addition to $487 billion in cuts already in motion. “These cuts are too fast, too abrupt and too irresponsible,” he said at a public forum on national security at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a centrist think tank. He cited

a danger that the budget crisis “will cause an unnecessary, strategically unsound and dangerous degradation in military readiness and capability capability.” .” But he also said Pentagon leaders are not assuming the government’s budget crisis will be resolved soon. One possible consequence of continued impasse, he said, is that a larger part of the military will lose its combat edge. As a result, it may be inevitable that some forces will be less prepared to act — and that, he said, would mean that in a crisis the president would have fewer options for protecting the nation’s security interests.

Gay rights bill moves forward as opposition remains silent By Donna Cassata THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Invoking the Declaration of Independence, proponents of a bill that would outlaw discrimination against gays in the workplace argued on Tuesday that the measure is rooted in fundamental fairness for all Americans. Republican opponents of the measure were largely silent, neither addressing the issue on the second day of Senate debate nor commenting unless asked. Written statements from some rendered their judgment that the bill would result in costly, frivolous lawsuits and mandate federal law based on sexuality. The Senate moved closer to completing its work on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act that would prohibit workplace discrimination against gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. Senate Majority Leader Harry Ha rry Reid, D-Nev. , said a final vote in the Senate is possible by week’s end. Senate passage of the bill would represent a major victory for advocates of gay rights just months after the Supreme Court affirmed gay marriage and granted federal benefits to legally married same-sex couples and three years after Congress ended the ban on gays serving openly in the military. Illinois was poised to become the 15th state to legalize gay marriage after the state’s Legislature gave its final approval Tuesday Tu esday,, sending it to the g overnor, who has sa id he’ll sign it. “I don’t believe in discriminating against anybody,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a backer of the measure who voted against a similar, narrower bill 17 years ago. Hatch said the bill has language ensuring religious freedom that he expects the Senate to toughen.

Burger King to bring back Big Mac copycat By Candice Choi

NEW NE W YORK — What has two al l-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions on a sesame bun? Burger King’s latest sandwich. The Miami-based chain says it’s bringing back its “Big King” sandwich, which looks a lot like the popular Big Mac made by its bigger rival McDonald’s. Burger King says it’s an addition to the permanent

He noted that Burger King has also rolled out more differentiated products, such as a pulled pork sandwich. The changes aren’t yet making a big splash with customers. In the latest quarter, Burger King said sales slipped 0.3 percent at North American locations open at least a year. McDonald’s said the figure edged up 0.7 percent.

It’s just the latest move by Burger King that seems to pay more than a little homage to the Golden Arches. Last spring, Burger Bur ger King also unveiled a revamped menu that looked a lot like the food McDonald’s had added in recent years, such as fruit shakes, chicken snack wraps and specialty coffee drinks. Since then, Burger King has also rolled out a rib sandwich to compete with the popular McRib, as well as chicken nuggets (Burger King is better known for its chicken tenders). As the New York York Pos t wrote at the time, “They look like McNuggets. They’re as nutritious as McNuggets. Just don’t call them McNuggets.” What does McDonald’s think of all this? “We’re focused on our business and our customers,” spokeswoman Lisa McComb said

Burger King Worldwide has had numerous owners over theInc.years. 3G Capital, an investment firm run by Brazilian billionaires, bought the chain and took it private in 2010. It took it public again last year in a deal that allowed it to earn back what it paid while still maintaining a majority stake. Since then, 3G has moved CEO Bernardo Hees on to another assignment over in Pittsburgh, where he’s heading up H.J. Heinz. 3G bought the ketchup maker with Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway. In Hees’’ place, 3G installed another Hees another one its principals, Daniel Schwartz, who was 32 at the time. As for the new “Big King,” Burger King ’s website lists it at 510 calories.

Paramedics were called around 10 a.m. to Trotter’s Lincoln Park home, where they found him unresponsive. An ambulance crew transported Trotter to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was declared dead after unsuccessful attempts to revive him, Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said. An autopsy was planned for Wednesday. His wife, Rochelle Trotter, on Tuesday expressed the family’s shock at his death and apprecia-

His impact upon American Cuisine and the culinary world at large will always be remembered.” For decades, Trotter’s name was synonymous with cutting-edge cuisine.

He grew up in the northern Chicago suburb of Wilmette and majored in political science at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. But an inspiring meal several years earlier had planted the desire to cook. After graduation, he created a de facto apprenticeship, landing his first job at a restaurant in Chicago’s North Shore area called Sinclair’s, where he worked under now well-known chefs such as Norman Van Aken and Carrie Nahabedian.

CHICAGO — With a culinary style he likened to improvisational jazz, Charlie Trotter changed the way Americans view fine dining, pushing himself, his staff, his food and even his diners to limits rarely seen in an American restaurant. Yet it was his reluctance to move beyond those limits

returned to the U.S. — and with financial backing from his family — he purchased a Victorian house in Chicago and opened Charlie Trotters in it in 1987. “His restaurant shaped the world of food,” said Dana Cowin, editorin-chief of Food & Wine magazine. “He was so innovative and focused and intense and really brilliant. When he opened Charlie Trotter he was so original.” Trotter’s food was grounded in classical French technique, but blended seamlessly with Asian influences. He believed fervently in the power of simplicity and clean cooking, turning to simple vegetable purees and stocks — rather than heavy sauces — to deliver standup flavor in menus that changed daily. “He was a part of bringing in unusual ingredients and really scouring the world for ingredients that you never tasted before,” said fellow Chicago restaurateur Rick Bayless. “He was really on that forefront of creating the modern tasting menu.” He also was an early advocate of using seasonal and organic ingredients, as well as sustainably raised or caught meat and seafood. “Charlie was a visionary, an unbelievable chef that brought American cuisine to new heights,” Emeril Lagasse, a close friend of

For folks who generally find kale a little too assertive, the time to eat it is now, now,in in the cooler months,when its taste is milder

A fl flex exible ible,, hea healt lthhy soup that packs porky flav flavor or By Sara Moulton THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

This soup is a stick-to-your ribs flexitarian special. Make it with chicken broth and prosciutto and you end up with a carnivore’s delight. Make it with vegetable stock and no prosciutto and you’ve got a vegetarian’s delight. Either way, it’s plenty hearty. The potatoes give it body and creaminess. The spinach and kale give it earthiness and a bright green color. The greens also happen to be nutritional superstars — both spinach and kale are terrific sources of vitamins A, C and K, not to mention fiber. For folks who generally find kale a little too assertive, the time to eat it is now, in the cooler months, when its taste

is milder. And given kale’s current “it” vegetable status, you’ll certainly have no trouble finding it at the store. Some supermarkets even carry the bagged shredded leaves, as convenient as pre-washed lettuce or shredded slaw mix. For the potatoes, I went with Yukon gold because I like their buttery taste and because they hold their shape when cooked, unlike high-starch, thick-skinned baking potatoes. However, any potato will do as long as you cut it into 1-inch chunks. If the only spuds you have on hand are baking potatoes (such as russets), just be sure to peel them first. Otherwise, the skin will be too chewy in the soup.

Feds post food allergy guidelines for schools By Mike Stobbe THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ATL TLAN ANTA TA — The federal governme nt is issuing its first guidelines to schools on how to protect children with food allergies. The voluntary guidelines call on schools to take such steps as restricting nuts, shellfish or other foods that can cause allergic reactions, and make sure emergency allergy medicine — like EpiPens — are available. About 15 states — and numerous individual schools or school districts — already have policies of their own. “The need is here” for a

SOUP Continued from page 22 There’s very little fat in this recipe. The vegetarian version uses just 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil and half an ounce of grated Parmigiano-Reggiano. A little bit of that justly celebrated cheese goes a long way. And carnivores can keep the fat content low by trimming off the prosciutto’s fat. What’s that? The little Mario Batali devil on your shoulder insists that the flavor will go bye-bye along with the fat? Not necessarily. I was thrilled to discover that if you briefly bake the prosciutto on a rack in the oven, it becomes downright bacon-esque — crisp, salty and redolent of pork. Just be sure to pull the prosciutto out of the oven before it is completely crisp. It will continue cooking even outside the oven. If it doesn’t reach the desired state within a minute or two, slide it back into the oven and give it

TROTTER Continued from page 21 Trotter’s, said in an email. “We have lost a tremendous human being and an incredible chef and restaurateur.” Trotter was gruff, exacting, demanding and a culinary genius. And for years, the restaurant was considered one of the best in the nation, earning two Michelin stars the first year the guide rated Chicago restaurants. He also was giving. He created a charitable group that not only awarded culinary scholarships, but also brought disadvantaged children to his restaurant every week to teach them about fine dining. But in time, the food world caught up with him. And food culture changed, with

more comprehensive, standardized way for schools to deal with this issue, said Dr. Wayne Giles, who oversaw development of the advice for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Food allergies are a growing concern. A recent CDC survey estimated that about 1 in 20 U.S. children have food allergies — a 50 percent increase from the late 1990s. Experts aren’t sure why cases are rising. Many food allergies are mild and something children grow out of. But severe cases may cause anaphylactic shock or even death from eating, say, a peanut.

The guidelines released Wednesday were required by a 2011 federal law. Peanuts, tree nuts, milk and shellfish are among the food that most often most trigger reactions. But experts say more than 170 foods are known to cause reactions. The new advice call for schools to do such things as: • Identify children with food allergie allergie s. • Have a plan to prevent exposures and manage any reactions. • Train teachers or others how to use medicines like epinephrine injectors, or have medical staff to do the job.

• Plan parties or field trips trips free of foods that might cause a reaction; and designate someone to carry epinephrine. • Make sure classroom activities activities are inclusive. For example, don’t use Peanut M&M’s in a counting lesson, said John Lehr, chief executive of an advocacy group that worked on the guidelines, Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE). Carolyn Duff, president of the National Association of School Nurses, which worked on the guidelines, said many schools may not have policies on food allergies.

another quick jolt. Now you’ve got all the flavor you — or your inner Mario — could ask for. Just keep an eye on the salt in the rest of the recipe. Both the cheese and the meat are high in sodium.

Twelve 1/2-inch-thick diagonally cut slices of baguette 1/2 ounce finely grated ParmigianoReggiano cheese Heat the oven to 400 F. In a large saucepan over medium, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring for 1 minute. Add the potatoes, 4 cups of the stock and the wine. Bring to a boil, cover the pan and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the kale, cover the pan, then simmer for another 10 minutes. Add the spinach spinach and the pepper flakes, cover, and simmer for another 5 minutes. Working in 2 batches, transfer about 3 cups total of the soup solids with a little added broth each time, to a blender and puree until smooth. Be careful, hot foods expand in the blender. Return the puree to the saucepan, add salt to taste and the additional cup of stock if necessary to achieve the

Meanwhile, set a wire rack over a rimmed baking sheet. Arrange the prosciutto slices in a single layer on the rack, then bake on the oven ’s middle middle rack for 10 to 12 minutes, or until they begin to crisp. Remove the rack from the sheet pan and set it on the counter to let the prosciutto cool. When cool, crumble the prosciutto. Arrange the baguette slices in single layer on the sheet pan and brush them with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Bake them on the oven’s middle shelf until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle the grated cheese evenly over them, return the slices to the oven and bake until the cheese is just melted, 1 to 2 minutes. To serve, ladle the soup into 4 bowls, then top each portion with some of the prosciutto crisps and 3 toasts on the side.

“The one thing it will do for me is let me wipe a certain slate clean. And while I’m studying and reading and applying myself to something else, if I decide to come back to the restaurant world, I think I’m going to bring a different perspective,” he told The Associated Press in an interview last year. “My hope is to really learn how to think very differently on the whole thing,” he said. Trotter was hospitalized in New York City this summer after having a seizure, close family friend and early Trotter mentor Van Aken said Tuesday. Van Aken said he didn’t know what caused the seizure. Van Aken said it was a shame the public rarely saw other sides of Trotter’s personality — the wit that drove him to share video clips of W.C. Fields, his reenactments of scenes from “The Godfather,” his love of Miles Davis.

In a behind-the-scenes look for the AP three days before closing night, the Charlie Trotter’s staff held a typically detail-laden pre-dinner meeting, discussing specifics down to the exact dates when diners last ate at the restaurant and reminders about when to use certain wine glasses. Dishes from the final week of menus included poached white asparagus with charred broccolini, manchego cheese and red pepper essence and root beer leaf ice cream with vanilla cremeaux and birch syrup-infused meringue. Some might have thought the move from the restaurant world was too risky. Not Trotter. “What’s the worst that could happen? Life’s too short. You may be on this planet for 80 years at best or who knows, but you can’t just pedal around and do the same thing forever,” he he told the AP in 2012.

POTATO AND GREENS SOUP WITH PARMESAN TOASTS Start to finish: 1 hour (40 minutes active) Servings: 4 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided 1 cup finely chopped yellow onion 1 tablespoon minced garlic 1 pound Yukon gold (or other thinskinned potatoes), cut into 1-inch chunks 4 to 5 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth 1/2 cup dry white wine 6 cups packed torn kale leaves 6 cups packed baby spinach leaves 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste Salt 1/4 pound thinly sliced prosciutto celebrity often trumping skill. It was a world to which he adapted poorly. “The last few times I saw him were at a food and wine festivals where people didn’t recognize him. People did not acknowledge him for his incredibly important place in history,” said Bourdain. “Back in Charlie’s day, it was really the merit system. Being a great chef was enough. You didn’t have to be lovable.” Meanwhile, chefs such as Achatz — of award-winning Chicago restaurants Alinea and Next — became so avant-garde, Trotter ’s menus seem almost dated. And the very organic and seasonal philosophies he’d spearheaded had become commonplace. In 2012 — and in keeping with his reputation for bold, unexpected moves — Trotter closed his iconic 120-seat restaurant. His plan? Return to college to study philosophy.

THE DA DAIL ILY Y JOUR JOURNAL NAL Sandy a year ago. Taken together, the results in individual states and cities yielded no broad judgments on how the American public feels about today’s two biggest national political debates — government spending and health care — which are more likely to shape next fall’s midterm elections. Even so, Tuesday’s voting had local impact.

“It was a good race,” said Mason. “I’m proud to be part of the process and learned a lot. I would love to sit on the school board. I’m really interested in science-based education. [Running] helped me galvanize the work I want to do when I run for the school board.” Marty Medina, 47, came in third and said the point of him running was to bring focus to utility rate increases. He is a former Public Works inspector for the city. “I believe in giving people choice for the

most hard-fought races. Without presidential or congressional elections on the books, voters were primarily hard-core partisans. But to win, both gubernatorial victors sounded a tone of pragmatic bipartisanship — at a time of dysfunctional divided government in Washington — and, because of that pitch, they managed to cobble together a diverse cross-section of voters from across the political spectrum. In Virginia, McAuliffe eked out a smallerthan-expected victory over conservative

was too close to call. Democrats, who already control both Senate seats, hoped this election would give them control of all major statewide offices for the first time since 1970, a rejection of the conservatism that has dominated for the past four years. “Virginia’s on its way becoming reliably blue,” Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said. In New Jersey, Christie coasted to a second term, defeating little-known Democratic state Sen. Barbara Buono. He assembled a winning coalition with broad support among constituencies that don’t reliably vote Republican. Exit polls show that Christie carried a majority of women and split Hispanics with Buono. He

I would like them to be able to assist them with that, with study sessions and getting the public’s involvement.” Mayor Jim Ruane, City Clerk Carol Bonner and City Treasurer John Marty all ran uncontested for their positions.

Republican Kenfared Cuccinelli. Exit polls that Cuccinelli well among core found rightflank constituents — tea partyers, gun owners and rural voters. But the victor, McAuliffe, held advantages among unmarried women, voters who called abortion a top issue and the vote-rich Washingt Washingt on su burbs. “Over the next four years most Democrats and Republicans want to make Virginia a model of pragmatic leadership,” said McAuliffe, a Democrat taking the helm in a state where Republicans control the Legislature. “This is only possible if Virginia is the model for bipartisan cooperation.” Democrats won the top two offices in Virginia, while the attorney general’s race

improved on his the10vote among blacks in 2009 by share more of than percentage points. Christie’s advisers saw his ability to draw support from Democrats, independents and minorities as a winning argument ahead of 2016, pitching him as the most electable candidate in what could be a crowded presidential primary field. “As your governor, it has never mattered where someone is from, whether they voted for me or not, what the color of their skin was, or their political party. For me, being governor has always about getting the job done, first,” Christie told supporters inside a rowdy convention hall in Asbury Park, N.J., just steps away from the same Jersey Shore that was devastated by Superstorm

• In Alabama, the GOP’s internal squabbles played out in the special congressional runoff primary election. Bradley Byrne, a veteran politician and the choice of the GOP establishment, won against tea party favorite Dean Young. The race was the first test of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s promise to try to influence primaries. The group had pumped at least $200,000 into supporting Byrne. • Big city mayors: In New York, de Blasio cruised to victory over Republican Joe Lhota after Michael Bloomberg’s 12-year tenure. Atlanta, Boston, Detroit, Minneapolis, Seattle and other cities also chose mayors. • Colorado: Voters agreed agreed to tax marijuana at 25 percent and apply the proceeds to regulating the newly legalized drug and building schools. And 10 rural counties refused to approve secession from the state. One county narrowly voted to secede, but it was a symbolic gesture.

There were three open seats in the Hillsborough City School District Board of Trustees race. Incumbent Lynne Esselstein, Don Geddis and Kaarin Hardy took the open seats with 28.2 percent, 27.9 percent and 27.7 percent of the vote, respectively. Pearl G. Wu received 16.3 percent of the vote.

As the water district board stands, it takes all five members to come together to make a decision, Linvill said. With her help, the board will continue to polish its policies and enhance its financial documenting procedures, Linvill said. With repairs underway on the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission infrastructure, rates are projected to rise. Keeping customers happy with reasonable rates while providing them quality service is a job all three victors say they’re dedicating to fulfilling.

Test takers rush to complete GED By KimberlyHefling THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHI ASHINGTO NGTON N — Americ ans who passed part, but not all, of the GED test are rushing to finish the high school equivalency exam before a new version rolls out in January and their previous scores are wiped out. About 1 million people could be affected. With the new version, test takers must use a computer instead of paper and pencil.

SAN MATEO Continued from page 1 Lim generated the most voter support with 27.4 percent of the vote, according to the semi-official results from the San Mateo County Elections Office. “I’ll continue being accountable and accessible. [For the] first four months, I’ll have meetings on sustainability, street repairs and quality-of-life issues,” Lim told the Daily Journal. Ross came in second with 23.4 percent, narrowly ahead of Goethals who came in with 23.3 percent of the vote. Goethals, like Lim, is a prosecutor for the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office

BURLINGAME Continued from page 1 man Russ Cohen, who are separated by 10 votes, with Ortiz taking 15.6 percent with 1,644 votes and Cohen taking 15.5 percent with 1,634 votes. Nirmala Bandrapalli, Steve Duncan, Alexander England Kent, Andrew Peceimer and Robert Schinagl also ran. Incumbent Cathy Baylock opted not to run again. Cohen, 54, has not yet conceded and said

MEASURE P Continued from page 1 support Measure P. After the meeting concluded, Simms allegedly refused to shake the mayor’s hand as he had it extended out in thanks for her presentation. The measure would have allowed Knolls in San Mateo, which has been used as a tempo-

The test itself will be more rigorous and cost more — at $120, the price in some states will be significantly higher than previous versions. Some places may subsidize all or part of the cost. “This is the thing that’s sort of putting the spur in the saddle,” said Lecester Johnson, executive director of Academy of Hope, an adult charter school in Washington. “People just don’t want to start over.” Test takers have been warned for more

than a year about the approaching Dec. 31 deadline to complete the test. States and localities are phoning people, and thousands of letters have gone out — including to 32,000 Californians who passed parts but not all the test in the last two years. “We don’t want anyone to be caught offguard and come in and test in January or February thinking they have their old scores, and they have to start over,” said Pam Blundell, who oversees adult education for the Oklahoma State Department of

and is giving up his position on the Peninsula Health Care District Board to serve on the council. It’s bittersweet, because the health care district is very important th e city’s well-being, however he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to have a role on the council, Goethals said. Joshua Hugg came in fourth with 13.3 percent of the vote. Regardless of the outcome, he stayed true to his values and will remain in civic service and continue to support the community as a planning commissioner, Hugg said. Although disappointed in the loss, he is happy to have provided voices to people who wouldn’t otherwise be part of the dialogue, Hugg said. “I’ll continue to work to make the city the best it can be to the extent that I can,” Hugg said.

Communications and marketing professional Karen Schmidt took her first swing at city politics and came in fifth with 12.6 percent of the vote. Ross, a 28-year veteran of city’s police department, has served on the council for four years, as has Lim. Goethals will be filling councilman Brandt Grotte’s seat after he opted not to run for re-election this year. Ross looks forward to working with the young Goethals. “I’m excited, I think Joe will bring a set of fresh eyes and some new perspective,” Ross said. With the city’s recent controversy and lawsuit over the new 7-Eleven on San Mateo Drive, Lim and Ross need a strong cohort. Even with a top-notch council, the city still has several staff vacancies to fill after

three members of the Community Development Department, including director Lisa Grote resigned. Anew city manager will also need to be appointed as the former city manager Susan Loftus retired Nov. 1. The city has a great interim city manager in Larry Patterson and, once things are reorganized, he would like to see everyone come together as a team at City Hall, Goethals said. With continued input from the community and businesses, Ross said he hopes to create a long-term vision for the city. Affordable housing, city staff oversight and developing a more fruitful downtown are issues all of the candidates agree need work.

Council as a whole has been very productive for the last four years and that counts.” She said she’s interested in continuing to work on the master plan for a potential new community center and building the new Broadway overpass.

Nicole Chestang, executive vice president at GED Testing Service, said the rush was expected. In 2001, the year before the last upgrade, there was a 30 percent increase in test takers, most toward the end of the year, she said. She advised people to register for the exam now, even if they don’t take it until later in November or December.

Around the world U.N.envoy: No deal U.N.envoy: on Syrian peace talks date GENEV GEN EVA — After a rocky day d ay of U.N.-brokered talks, the United States and Russia failed to agree on a date to bring Syria’s warring sides back to the negotiating table, and the two powers remained divided Tuesday Tuesday over what role Iran should play in a hoped-for Geneva peace conference. The U.N.-Arab League’s top envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, told reporters at the end of the talks involving Russia and other nationsthe thatU.S., the impasse did not mean all hopes of resuming negotiations from June 2012 were dashed. Another round of U.S.Russian talks on arranging a second peace conference in this city is planned for Nov. 25. “We are still striving to see if we can have the conference before the end of the year,” he said.

Inspectors waiting on two Syria chemical sites UNITED NATIONS — Global chemical weapons inspectors will visit the last two unverified Syrian chemical weapons sites as soon as security conditions allow in the midst of an ongoing civil war, a U.N. o fficial said Tuesday. Tuesday. Sigrid Kaag, the head of the joint mission of the United Nations and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, told the Security Council that the inspectors will check the last two sites as soon as possible. The inspectors last week said they had visited 21 of 23 sites declared by Damascus. “The intent is to visit them in future, subject to security conditions in the country,” she said.

Toronto’s Mayor Ford admits crack use, plans to keep job By Rob Giles THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TORONTO — Toronto Mayor Rob Ford acknowledged for the first time Tuesday that he smoked crack “probably a year ago” when he was in a “drunken stupor,” but he refused to resign despite immense pressure to step aside as leader of Canada’s largest city. Ford said he loves his job and “for the sake of the taxpayers, we must get back to work immediately.” Allegations that the mayor had been caught on video smoking crack surfaced in news reports in May. Ford initially insisted the video did not exist, sidestepped questions about whether he had ever used crack and rebuffed growing calls to leave office. The mayor was forced to back-

“Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine,” Ford told reporters earlier in the day. “There have been times when I’ve been in a drunken

stupor. That’s why I want to see the tape. I want everyone in the city to see this tape. I don’t even recall there being a tape or video. I want to see the state that I was in.” Later at a news conference, he said acknowledging the drug use made him feel as if he had “1,000 pounds off my back.” Authorities have said the video, which has not been released publicly, does not constitute enough evidence to charge the mayor with a crime. Police have said they want to talk to the mayor, but his lawyer so far has declined. Police spokesman Mark Pugush said Ford’s acknowledgement of crack use will be passed on to investigators. Several Toronto city councilors called on Ford to step down, and Canada’s justice minister urged him to get help.

Egypt’ss ousted president Egypt’ president in high-securit high-securityy prison By Sarah El Deeb THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CAIRO — Deep in the desert and far from his former base of power, ousted President Mohammed Morsi is being held in a sprawling penitentiary that is notorious as one of Egypt’s highest-security prisons. The move appears aimed not only at isolating him from other Muslim Brotherhood leaders who

are jailed in Cairo but also to prevent his supporters from staging protests — or even trying to engineer a prison break, like those that occurred during the Arab Spring uprising of 2011. Morsi spent his first night at the Borg el-Arab prison in a hospital room at the facility, complaining of high blood pressure and high blood sugar after a dramatic court appearance earlier Monday, the start of his trial on charges of inciting the killing of protesters

His room in the prison hospital has a TV set and a private private bathroom, bathroom, security officials said. The 50-acre prison compound, about 30 kilometers (19 miles) from Alexandria, is garrisoned by a special unit of the security forces and sits behind layers of high con-

crete walls. New checkpoints stretching for a mile beyond the prison gates have been set up to make it more difficult for Morsi’s supporters to congregate in the area for possible protests. Security officials said Borg elArab prison was the preferred choice of Egyptian authorities after Morsi spent four months in a secret military facility facility,, held virtually incommunicado since he was ousted July 3 in a popularly backed military coup.
