‘We ... have not forgotten’

Hurricane Florence closes in on Carolinas By Jonathan Drew The Associated Press

WILMINGTON, N.C. — Motorists streamed inland on highways converted to one-way evacuation routes Tuesday as about 1.7 million people in three states were warned to get out of the way of Hurricane Florence, a hairraising storm taking dead aim at the Carolinas with 140 mph winds and potentially ruinous rains. Florence was expected to blow ashore late Thursday or early Friday, then slow down and wring itself out for days, unloading 1 to 2½ feet of rain that could cause flooding well inland and wreak environmental havoc by washing over industrial waste sites and hog farms. Forecasters and politicians pleaded with the public to take the warnings seriously and minced no words in describing the threat. “This storm is a monster. It’s big and it’s vicious. It is an extremely dangerous, life-threatening, historic hurricane,” North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said. He added: “The waves and the wind this storm may bring is nothing like you’ve ever seen. Even if you’ve ridden out storms before, this one is different. Don’t bet your life on riding out a monster.” Some hoped for divine intervention. “I’m prayed up and as ready as I can get,” Steven Hendrick said as he filled up gasoline cans near Conway, South Carolina. More than 5.4 million people live in areas under hurricane warnings or watches on the U.S. East Coast, according to the National Weather Service, and another 4 million people were under a tropical storm watch. President Donald Trump declared states of emergency for North and South Carolina and Virginia, opening the way for federal aid. He said the federal government is “absolutely, totally prepared” for Florence. All three states ordered mass evacuations along the coast. But getting out of harm’s way could prove difficult. Florence is so wide that a lifethreatening storm surge was being pushed 300 miles ahead of its eye, and so wet that a swath from South Carolina to Ohio and Pennsylvania could get deluged. People across the region rushed to buy bottled water and other supplies, board up their homes, pull their boats out of the water and get out of town. A line of heavy traffic moved away from the coast on Interstate 40, the main route between the port city of See FLORENCE, A6

SJ Patriot Day ceremony honors first responders By Lori Gilbert Record Staff Writer

Post Cmdr. Sam Pachuca speaks during the VFW Luneta Post 52’s Patriot Day observance Tuesday at the Stockton Memorial Civic Auditorium. “The attendance may seem sparse, but that’s not important to me,” said VFW Cmdr. Sam Pachuca. “To me what’s important is that we, the Stockton VFW, and you who are here today have not forgotten.”

STOCKTON — As Sheriff Steve Moore, Stockton Police Chief Eric Jones, Stockton Deputy Fire Chief Matt Duaime and California Highway Patrol Capt. Shann Setter spoke of the role of first responders at the Veterans of Foreign Wars commemoration of Patriot Day on Tuesday, Michael Emerson stood in the back holding an American flag. On the back of his shirt was an image of Mark Bingham and the words, In Loving Memory, May 22, 1970-Sept. 11, 2001. Bingham was a passenger on United Airlines Flight 93 when it left Newark, New Jersey, headed

for San Francisco on Sept. 11, 2001. When hijackers took over their flight, passengers on Flight 93 learned  of the earlier plane strikes on the World Trade Center twin towers and the Pentagon, and Bingham and fellow passengers and crew members charged the cockpit door. They managed to get in, which prompted the terrorists to crash the plane into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Everyone on board was killed. “He was extended family, through his father,” Emerson said of Bingham. “He played rugby at Cal. He was gay. He grew up in Los Gatos with his mother, Alice.

US marks 9/11 with somber tributes By Jennifer Peltz and Karen Matthews The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Americans looked back on 9/11 Tuesday with tears and somber tributes as President Donald Trump hailed “the moment when America fought back” on one of the hijacked planes used as weapons in the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil. Victims’ relatives said prayers for their country, pleaded for national unity and pressed officials not to use the 2001 terror attacks as a political tool in a polarized nation. Seventeen years after losing her husband, Margie Miller came from her suburban home to join thousands of relatives, survivors, rescuers and others on a misty morning at the memorial plaza where the World Trade Center’s

The president and first lady Melania Trump joined an observance at the Sept. 11 memorial near Shanksville, where one of the jetliners crashed after 40 passengers and crew members realized what was happening and several passengers tried to storm the cockpit.

SUSD weighs plans for headquarters move By Nicholas Filipas Record Staff Writer

STOCKTON — San Joaquin County’s largest school district might be getting a new home address. Trustees discussed and approved next steps  for  a possible relocation of the district’s administration building and further potential use of its current property that is said to be 100 years old. The 41,000-square-foot administration building, at 701 N. Madison St., has been the district’s headquarters since July 1958. Officials said the brick building faces numerous “structural and seismic deficiencies” that otherwise prevent proper operational use. The building also fails to meet

requirements set by the Americans with Disabilities Act. Research into a new office space has taken place since July 2015 and two years later, trustees played with the idea of settling in 349 E. Vine St., a stone’s throw away from St. Joseph’s Hospital. But there’s a problem: Much of that space is currently occupied by Stockton Early College Academy. Moving offices into the location would reduce any usable space for future program growth and reduce the existing playing field for the charter school. SUSD could use existing portable buildings and the disposition of the theater. A timeline for the project was projected to take anywhere from three to five years with

completion estimated in 2023. The district’s task of looking for a new home has been an odyssey in and of itself. In 2006, plans to move SUSD into an education center downtown never materialized. Now the district may return to its original option by moving all of its district service offices under one roof into a multilevel building on the campus of Weber Institute of Applied Sciences and Technology along 302 W. Weber Ave. The district could buy two parcels of property from the city and build on that and complete construction by 2021. Creating one large common property with surface parking is the easiest to achieve, has

Lodi sings the big city blues Michael Fitzgerald

“It’s a bit like a game show,” said summit communications director Nick Nuttall. “It’s going to be loads of Hollywood-style announcements.” And when you are talking about shifting trillions of dollars to finance initiatives, the private sector needs to get involved and that’s happening, said Nigel Purvis, chief executive officer of

he city of Lodi had a double homicide on Sunday. Part of a changing crime picture in a changing city. Two men were gunned down outside an east Lodi bar “in a neighborhood where residents say the sound of gunfire is almost a nightly occurrence.” It was Lodi’s eighth homicide of the year. “We’ve never been busier,” Lodi Police Chief Tod Patterson said. “There’s never been more violence.” That may conflict with the image many Stocktonians have of Lodi: a city that willed away big-city problems while grooming itself as an elegant wine country capital. The city has in fact improved its once-humble wine and gained increased popularity as a tourist destination. It has managed growth well. It kept alive a pleasantly walkable downtown. But on a parallel track Lodi has diversified demographically. Poverty has increased. Most importantly, city government has drifted into grave financial trouble. The upshot: Though not indicative of Lodi’s overall crime, currently Lodi’s homicides per capita in 2018 exceed Stockton’s (Lodi’s is 1 per 8,200 compared to Stockton’s 1 per 13,500). Rewind. Lodi in 1960 was a village of 22,229 people. Today Lodi is a city of 65,884. But with that growth came economic inequity. ‘We’ve got this booming wine industry and booming tourism,” said Lodi Councilwoman JoAnne Mounce, whose district encompasses Lodi’s poorer East Side. “And who do you think lives on the East Side?” Mounce asked. “Our service workers. Our grape pickers, our agricultural workforce, the people we desperately need to make Lodi successful.” But, Mounce said, the East Side has become up to 75 percent rental property. “We know that when a neighborhood reaches a certain threshold of rentals, then you get crime, drugs and blight.” The East Side has no monopoly on crime. Crime occurs throughout the city, Patterson said. But the number of sworn city police officers is actually smaller than it was 20 years ago, even as Lodi’s population grows, and new laws release more jailbirds and state convicts onto the streets. “We’re seeing more guns and more gun violence,” said Patterson, adding that officers this year have taken 78 guns off the street, 50 of which were involved in crimes. Simultaneously, a Police Department of 71 budgeted sworn

A different kind of climate summit comes to SF By Seth Borenstein The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — The international effort to fight climate change is about to get injected with a bit of Hollywood flash, a lot of Wall Street green and a considerable dose of cheerleading rather than dry treaty negotiations. Business leaders, mayors, governors and activists from around the world gather this week in San

Francisco for the Global Climate Action Summit, where participants will trumpet what they’ve done and announce new efforts to slow a warming world. In addition, a smattering of celebrities such as musician Dave Matthews and actor Alec Baldwin will add a touch of red carpet feel to the summit, which starts today. It will involve trillions of dollars of pledges for spending on cleaner energy and getting out

of investments in heat-trapping fossil fuels, according to officials involved. And it will include a newer way of fighting climate change by emphasizing more climate-friendly land use, food production and diets, along with massive increases in forests — something one expert called “the forgotten climate solution.” Cities, states, businesses and charitable foundations are all going to get in the act.

Trial for parents of missing twins delayed By Joe Goldeen Record Staff Writer

STOCKTON — An eight-week trial delay has been granted in the child endangerment case against the father and mother of missing brother-and-sister twins Ren and Setina Weddles. A three-day preliminary hearing was scheduled to begin Tuesday morning in San Joaquin County Superior Court for Aaron Ivan Weddles, 41, and Princess CanezWalker, 32, each facing eight counts suspecting them of willful cruelty to a child possibly causing injury or death. Instead, the hearing was continued to 8:30 a.m. Nov. 5 in Department 7B at the downtown Stockton Courthouse to accommodate one of the defense attorneys undergoing a medical procedure. Weddles and Canez-Walker, homeless at the time they were located by police Jan. 9 in northwest Stockton, were found living in “deplorable and dangerous conditions” with three of their eight children inside a small 2002 Suzuki sport utility vehicle. The couple’s youngest two children, twins Ren and Setina who would have been 20 months old at the time, were not present and were declared missing. Police have said there is no update on the twins’ whereabouts or their status to date. Court documents allude to the possibility that Ren may have died May 13, 2016, in Stockton, just five weeks after he was born at

the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento. Either he was killed accidentally by Weddles, the document notes, or by an unknown gunman shooting at Weddles. A formal search for the child’s body possibly buried in the backyard of the family’s former Flint Avenue home found nothing. No public information has been provided on where Setina may be. Throughout the entire time they have been in custody, neither Canez-Walker nor Weddles have said anything to authorities revealing the status or whereabouts of either twin. In July, Canez-Walker was declared incompetent to stand trial and was remanded to the custody of the California Department of State Hospitals. She is receiving inpatient treatment in a locked facility in Napa for up to three years with the goal of stabilizing her mental condition in order to establish trial competency. Weddles is being held in custody in the County Jail in French Camp in lieu of more than $1.2 million bail. Contact reporter Joe Goldeen at (209) 546-8278 or jgoldeen@ recordnet.com.

“For the longest time we never had calls holding,” Patterson said. “Now we have calls holding for up to two hours.” The reason is money. Despite Lodi’s carefully groomed image as an upscale tourist destination, a place to pull your Porsche up to for wine and cheese, Lodi is going broke.

That report says businesses and lower levels of government have the potential to cut enough greenhouse gases emissions to keep global warming below the danger point of another 2 degrees Fahrenheit from now. However, the same report says so far, 8,000 pledges from those groups haven’t accomplished much. To keep from hitting that 2 degree mark, the world has to cut its expected annual emissions by nearly 15 billion tons of carbon dioxide equivalent by 2030, including what’s pledged in the 2015 Paris climate agreement. The businesses and states basically get about 4 percent there, according to Hsu. “It’s not much,” she said. “We were actually shocked to find that the numbers were so low.” This week’s summit aims to

create momentum for 2020 when world leaders return to the bargaining table to pledge even deeper cuts of heat-trapping emissions than set out in 2015, said Christiana Figueres, the former top United Nations climate official. She proposed this summit right after the Paris agreement was signed. “This is sort of the real economy speaking for itself,” Figueres said. She hopes the summit creates a “virtuous cycle” where businesses and states spur national governments to do better, which in turn spurs businesses again. Said Pete Ogden, a former Obama climate and national security official and now a vice president at the United Nations Foundation: “If Paris is going to work it needs to have that positive feedback loop.”

want to expose our staff to the homelessness problem,” he said. Trustees also approved the gathering of information on plans to relocate Stockton High and Jane Frederick Continuation High into a single site at 135 W. Fremont St. If given the green light, that campus would open in August 2020. As for the current North Madison Street building, SUSD officials would demolish it and develop a parent, student and health services center with a gymnasium in its place. Projects will be funded in part by the general fund using one-time reserves projected to be about $16 million. Stockton Unified intends to finance the remaining cost of building the administration building and estimated the cost at $55 million.

Finished in 1915, the North Madison Street building was originally built to house Weber School, at the time the city’s newest westside campus, according to district records. By the mid-1950s, enrollment at Weber dropped to fewer than 250, and in 1957, the district’s governing board voted to close it. The building’s conversion to an administrative headquarters had begun two years earlier.

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran’s nuclear chief said Tuesday he hopes Tehran’s landmark atomic deal with world powers will survive President Donald Trump withdrawing the U.S. from it, warning the Islamic Republic’s program stands ready to build advanced centrifuges and further enrich uranium. In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, Ali Akbar Salehi stressed Iran would be guided by “prudence and wisdom” when weighing whether to abandon the deal if European nations fail to protect it from Trump. The U.S. withdrawal from the deal already has badly shaken Iran’s anemic economy, crashing its currency, the rial. That likely will be compounded by U.S. sanctions coming in November that threaten Iran’s oil exports, a major source of government funding. All this puts further pressure on the administration of Iran’s relatively moderate President Hassan Rouhani, to whom Salehi reports as one of his vice presidents. But Salehi dismissed out of hand the idea of caving to American demands to renegotiate the accord. “Yes, we have our problems. Yes, the sanctions have caused some problems for us. But if a nation decides to enjoy political independence, it will have to pay the price,” Salehi said. “If Iran decides today to go back to what it was before, the lackey of the United States, the situation would” be different. Salehi heads the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, whose Tehran campus encompasses a nuclear research reactor given to the country by the U.S. in 1967 under the rule of the shah. But in the time since that American “Atoms for Peace” donation, Iran was convulsed by its 1979 Islamic Revolution and the subsequent

takeover and hostage crisis at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. For decades since, Western nations have been concerned about Iran’s nuclear program, accusing Tehran of seeking atomic weapons. Iran long has said its program is for peaceful purposes, but it faced years of crippling sanctions. The 2015 nuclear deal Iran struck with world powers, including the U.S. under President Barack Obama, was aimed at relieving those fears. Under it, Iran agreed to store its excess centrifuges at its underground Natanz enrichment facility under constant surveillance by the U.N. nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency. Iran can use 5,060 older-model IR-1 centrifuges at Natanz, but only to enrich uranium up to 3.67 percent. That low-level enrichment means the uranium can be used to fuel a civilian reactor but is far below the 90 percent needed to produce a weapon. Iran also can possess no more than 300 kilograms (660 pounds) of that uranium. That’s compared to the

10,000 kilograms (22,046 pounds) of higher-enriched uranium it once had. Salehi spoke to the AP on Tuesday about Iran’s efforts to build a new facility at Natanz that will produce more-advanced centrifuges, which enrich uranium by rapidly spinning uranium hexafluoride gas. The new facility will allow Iran to build versions called the IR-2M, IR-4 and IR-6. The IR-2M and the IR-4 can enrich uranium five times faster than an IR-1, while the IR-6 can do it 10 times faster, Salehi said. Western experts have suggested these centrifuges produce three to five times more enriched uranium in a year than the IR-1s. While building the facility doesn’t violate the nuclear deal, mass production of advanced centrifuges would. Salehi, however, said that wasn’t immediately a plan. “This does not mean that we are going to produce these centrifuges now. This is just a preparation,” he said. “In case Iran decides to start producing in mass production such centrifuges, (we) would be ready for that.”

NEW YORK — Religion’s role in politics and public policy is in the spotlight heading toward the midterm elections, yet relatively few Americans consider it crucial that a candidate be devoutly religious or share their religious beliefs, according to a poll released Tuesday by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Just 25 percent of Americans say it’s very or extremely important that a candidate has strong religious beliefs, according to the poll. Only 19 percent consider it very or extremely important that a candidate shares their own beliefs, and nearly half say that’s not very important or not important at all. Still, most Americans see a role for religion in shaping public policy. A solid majority of Americans, 57 percent, want the influence of religion on government policy to extend beyond traditional culture war issues and into policies addressing poverty. Americans are more likely to say religion should have at least some influence on poverty than on abortion (45 percent) or LGBT

issues (34 percent). There is little public support for the campaign by some conservative religious leaders, backed by President Donald Trump, to allow clergy and religious organizations to endorse political candidates while retaining their tax exempt status. Such a change is opposed by 53 percent of Americans and supported by 13 percent. The rest expressed no opinion. Trump’s stance on political endorsements by clergy is one of many reasons he has retained strong support among white evangelical Christians, despite aspects of his behavior and personal life that don’t neatly align with Christian values. The AP-NORC poll found that 7 in 10 white evangelical Protestants say they approve of Trump, a Republican. The importance of a candidate’s religious faith varied across religious and political groups. Among white evangelical Protestants, 51 percent consider it very or extremely important that a candidate has strong religious beliefs. An additional 25 percent think it’s moderately important. Far fewer Catholics and white mainline Protestants considered this important.

NEW YORK — Hurricanes almost always set off an orchestrated dance on Wall Street before they make landfall, with shares of property and casualty insurance companies dumped in favor of companies that sell construction supplies or portable generators. That routine began a week ago, though Hurricane Florence appears to be turning up the volume this time. The last time a hurricane of this size struck the middle of the East Coast, Texas Instruments had just introduced the first transistor radio. Since then, the region has been developed heavily and the potential damages may be exponentially higher. Karen Clark & Co., which produces models for catastrophes, said that if 1989’s Hurricane Hugo had hit South Carolina in 2012, just 23 years later, insurance losses would have more than doubled to $10 billion when development and inflation are factored in. Forecasting where a hurricane will hit and with what level force is always tricky and there is a long history of false alarms. But the likelihood that Hurricane Florence will collide with Carolinas and neighboring states has created a sustained sell off of major property and casualty insurance companies, and the companies that insure the insurers. Allstate Corp had been in decline for three days, as has Travelers Cos., though those shares appeared to stabilize Tuesday. Property and casualty insurance investors “are still keenly aware of significant losses from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria in 2017,” wrote Kai Pan and Michael Phillips, analysts with Morgan Stanley. “We expect Florence to weigh on P&C (re) insurance stocks as it moves closer to mainland U.S.”

Tech, energy help push stocks up By Marley Jay The Associated Press

Allstate has a 6.9 percent market share for home, auto and commercial property coverage in the Carolinas and Virginia, according to Morgan Stanley. Berkshire Hathaway has a market share of 5.6 percent, and Travers is 4.3 percent. As of 5 p.m. Tuesday, Florence was centered 785 miles southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, moving westnorthwest at 17 mph. The center of the titanic storm is expected meander Thursday, Friday and Saturday over a stretch of coastline saturated by rising seas, inundating several states and triggering life-threatening floods. Seven-day rainfall totals are forecast to reach 10 inches to 20 inches over much of North Carolina and Virginia, and even 30 inches in some places. Combined with high tides, the storm surge could swell as high as 12 feet. Insurers, of course, have built up war chests and insured their own potential losses given the severity of the storms that have been striking the coastal United States. Pan and Phillips point out that even with losses exceeding $140 billion last year, the insurance industry remains well capitalized. How to put

a price on the destruction and how those companies will secure funding going forward is a topic of discussion this week at the annual, global reinsurance conference in Monte Carlo, where the analysts are in attendance. But early estimates are emerging, based on each $1 billion in covered damages. North Carolina has the highest property and casualty insured premiums of the three states at $16 billion, followed by Virginia at $13.6 billion, and South Carolina at $9.5 billion, according to Citi. “In North Carolina, we estimate Travelers losses would be about $42 million for each $1 billion in insured losses, followed by Allstate at $37 million, Chubb at $25 million and Progressive at $21 million,” wrote Citi analyst James Naklicki. On the other hand, companies that help people ride out a storm, or clean up afterward, are having an exceptional week. Shares of Generac Holdings Inc., which sells generators, are up 8 percent in just the past week. Shares of Home Depot Inc. and Lowe’s Cos. are both up about 4 percent in the same period.

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks rallied Tuesday as technology companies continued to recover from their recent losses. The approach of Hurricane Florence sent home improvement retailers and gas prices higher. The Department of Energy said it’s seeing signs that shipments of oil from Iran are falling as the U.S. prepares to resume sanctions on the Iranian energy industry and pushes other countries to stop buying. Apple climbed a day before it’s set to announce new phone designs and other products. Video game companies Activision Blizzard and TakeTwo Interactive also jumped. Other big technology companies, and their compatriot Amazon, rose for a second day after big declines last week. Brad McMillan, chief investment officer for Commonwealth Financial Network, said that when investors’ confidence in the technology sector wavers, it tends to come back quickly because the companies are so profitable: Google and Facebook are free to use, and new users cost the companies practically nothing. The S&P 500 index rose 10.76 points, or 0.4 percent, to 2,887.89. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 113.99 points, or 0.4 percent, to 25,971.06. The Nasdaq composite added 48.31 points, or 0.6 percent, to 7,972.47. The Russell 2000 index of smaller and more U.S.-focused companies inched up 0.94 points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,718.40.

Wilmington and inland Raleigh. Between the two cities, about two hours apart, the traffic flowed smoothly in places and became gridlocked in others because of fender-benders. Only a trickle of vehicles was going in the opposite direction, including pickup trucks carrying plywood and other building materials. Long lines formed at service stations, and some started running out of gas as far west as Raleigh, with bright yellow bags, signs or rags placed over the pumps to show they were out of order. Some store shelves were picked clean. “There’s no water. There’s no juices. There’s no canned goods,” Kristin Harrington said as she shopped at a Walmart in Wilmington. At 11 p.m., the storm was centered 670 miles southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina,

Alice and his dad, Jerry, were estranged. I have a relationship with Jerry.” Emerson never met Mark Bingham, but like the rest of the 25 or so people who attended the annual Veterans of Foreign Wars Luneta Post 52 ceremony, he wanted to pay tribute, to remember all the victims of 9/11. “The attendance may seem sparse, but that’s not important to me,” said VFW Cmdr. Sam Pachuca. “To me what’s important is that we, the Stockton VFW, and you who are here today have not forgotten. We need to continue, to carry that responsibility, and it is a responsibility. It’s a responsibility to our fellow citizens, a responsibility to our community and a responsibility to our first responders.” The representatives of the local agencies who make up the region’s first responders echoed a similar theme as they spoke on the steps of Stockton Memorial Civic Auditorium on a sun-dappled Tuesday eerily reminiscent of that warm day 17 years ago when most here awoke to the horrifying news that the United States was under attack. Seared in our memories are the images of those colossal towers crumbling in a puff of smoke, the

history.” They “joined the immortal ranks of American heroes,” said Trump. At the Pentagon, Vice President Mike Pence recalled the heroism of service members and civilians who repeatedly went back into the Pentagon to rescue survivors. The terrorists “hoped to break our spirit, and they failed,” he said. At the United Nations, Security Council members stood for a moment of silence, led by U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley. The 9/11 commemorations are by now familiar rituals, centered on reading the names of the dead. But each year at ground zero, victims’ relatives infuse the ceremony with personal messages of remembrance, inspiration and concern. For Nicholas Haros Jr., that concern is officials who make comparisons to 9/11 or invoke it for political purposes. “Stop. Stop,” implored Haros, who lost his 76-yearold mother, Frances. “Please stop using the bones and ashes of our loved ones as props in your political theater. Their lives, sacrifices and deaths are worth so much more. Let’s not trivialize them.” This year’s anniversary comes as a heated midterm election cycle kicks into high gear. But there have long been some efforts to separate the solemn anniversary from political campaigns. The group 9/11 Day, which promotes volunteering on the anniversary, asks candidates not to campaign or run political ads for the day. Organizers of the ground zero ceremony

moving at 17 mph. It was a potentially catastrophic Category 4 storm but was expected to keep drawing energy from the warm water and intensify to near Category 5, which means winds of 157 mph or higher. Florence is the most dangerous of three tropical systems in the Atlantic. Tropical Storm Isaac was east of the Lesser Antilles and expected to pass south of Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and Cuba, while Hurricane Helene was moving northward away from land. Forecasters also were tracking two other disturbances. The coastal surge from Florence could leave the eastern tip of North Carolina under more than 9 feet of water in spots, projections showed. “This one really scares me,” National Hurricane Center Director Ken Graham said. Federal officials begged residents to put together emergency kits and have a plan on where to go. “This storm is going to knock out power days into weeks. It’s going to destroy infrastructure. It’s going to destroy homes,” said Jeff Byard, an official

at the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Forecasters said parts of North Carolina could get 20 inches of rain, if not more, with as much as 10 inches elsewhere in the state and in Virginia, parts of Maryland and Washington, D.C. One trusted computer model, the European simulation, predicted more than 45 inches in parts of North Carolina. A year ago, people would have laughed off such a forecast, but the European model was accurate in predicting 60 inches for Hurricane Harvey in the Houston area, so “you start to wonder what these models know that we don’t,” University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy said. Rain measured in feet is “looking likely,” he said. The storm forced people to cut their vacations short along the coast. Paula Matheson of Springfield, Oregon, got the full Southern experience during her 10-week RV vacation: hot weather, good food, beautiful

Pentagon on fire, and the debris of an airplane in a country field. For first responders, those images linger, too, but they see something else. They see men and women in uniforms running into the fray to try to help. “Why do people do that, go toward those things when they happen?” Sheriff Moore asked. “It’s not unlike what we ask of our armed forces. … What it is, is duty. Duty means you take on that affirmative action in responding to situations. That duty is innate in people, to serve people, to serve our country, to go in and help others to preserve our way of life.” Chief Jones reminded everyone that the terrorist attacks were the deadliest incident ever in the United States for public safety, with more than 340 firefighters and 70 law enforcement officers lost that day. That those individuals ran to help as other law enforcement members do on a daily basis is “a calling,” Jones said. “Not everybody wants to be, or can be in law enforcement,” Jones said. “Those who do that job, officers, firefighters, EMTs on the street every day protecting us, are following that calling.” They do, Jones said, quoting Isaiah 6:8, raise their hands and say “Send me,” as Isaiah did when the Lord asked, “Who shall I send?” Setter, with the CHP, had just come off a graveyard shift in East Los Angeles when he saw

the planes strike the towers on television. “Like Chief Jones, I wanted to go back to work and help,” Setter said. “I didn’t know what I could do thousands of miles away,” but his instinct was to do something. That day changed law enforcement forever, turning agencies in terrorist fighters, said Setter, who noted a colleague lost his daughter in the San Bernardino shooting and he has family members who live near the site of the Las Vegas shooting. Both incidents “illustrate the strength of character of first responders,” Setter said, even if they didn’t face anything as ferocious as 9/11 first responders faced; they’d react to that level of chaos if they had to. “First responders choose their profession because of ideals to serve a greater cause, a faithfulness to a higher calling,” Setter said. The passengers and crew on Flight 93 were not first responders. They simply responded as heroically as the men and women who charged into the burning towers and began climbing stairs to help people. Emerson, who said he helped get the first 9/11 memorial built in Union City in 2007, reminded everyone of that with the simple tribute on his shirt.

allow politicians to attend, but they’ve been barred since 2011 from reading names or delivering remarks. If not political speeches, there were politically tinged appeals from some victims’ relatives amid the reading. “May we support our president to lead our country,” said Joanne Barbara, who lost her husband, Fire Department Assistant Chief Gerard Barbara. Another victim’s family sent a different message. “My hope is that discrimination, hatred and bigotry will cease and that we all will come together and love,” said Debra Epps, a sister of victim Christopher Epps. Another sister, Chaundera, had an answer for anyone who wonders why families still come to such ceremonies after 17 years. “Because soldiers are still dying for our freedom. First responders are still dying and being ill,” Chaundera Epps said, adding, “God bless America that’s never, ever, stopped being great.” Trump uses “Make America Great Again” as a slogan. Other relatives laid bare the toll their losses had taken on their families. Thomas Langer said his brother, Timmy, “drank himself to death” after losing his wife, Vanessa, and their unborn child on Sept. 11. “I witnessed my brother endure the pain that no one human being was ever meant to bear,” Thomas Langer said. Sept. 11 still shapes American policy, politics and everyday experiences in places from airports to office buildings, even if it’s less of a constant presence in the public consciousness after 17 years. A stark reminder came not long after last year’s anniversary: A truck mowed down people, killing eight, on a bike path

within a few blocks of the World Trade Center on Halloween. In December, a would-be suicide bomber set off a pipe bomb in a subway passageway near Times Square, authorities said. They said suspects in both attacks were inspired by the Islamic State extremist group. The recent attacks scare Ruben Perez, who read names at the trade center Tuesday. “I get very worried for the state of society. ... It’s part of what it means to be human in the 21st century, a fear for public safety,” said Perez, 23, who lost his uncle, Calixto Anaya Jr. Memorials to 9/11 continue to grow at Shanksville, where a newly dedicated Tower of Voices will eventually include a wind chime for each of the 40 people killed there, and ground zero, where work is to begin soon on a pathway honoring rescue and recovery workers. It will serve as a way to recognize those who became sick or died from exposure to toxins released when the Trade Center’s twin towers collapsed. Researchers have documented elevated rates of respiratory ailments, post-traumatic stress disorder and other illnesses among people who spent time in the rubble. About 38,500 people have applied to a compensation fund, and over $3.9 billion in claims have been approved. Meanwhile, a subway station destroyed on 9/11 finally reopened Saturday. In June, doors opened at the 80-story 3 World Trade Center, one of several rebuilt office towers that have been constructed or planned at the site. Victims’ families, too, have evolved and grown. “Even though I never met you,” Isabella Del Corral said of her slain grandfather, Joseph Piskadlo, “I’ll never forget you.”

beaches and, finally, a hurricane evacuation. Florence interrupted her stay on North Carolina’s Outer Banks. It took Matheson and her husband nearly the whole day Monday to drive the 60 miles off the barrier island . “It was so beautiful. The water was fabulous. Eighty-five degrees,” Matheson said, pausing a moment. “I guess that’s a big part of the problem.”

Florence’s projected path includes half a dozen nuclear power plants, pits holding coal-ash and other industrial waste, and numerous hog farms that store animal waste in huge lagoons. Duke Energy spokesman Ryan Mosier said operators would begin shutting down nuclear plants at least two hours before hurricane-force winds arrive.

North Carolina’s governor issued what he called a first-ofits-kind mandatory evacuation order for North Carolina’s fragile barrier islands from one end of the coast to the other. Typically, local governments in North Carolina make the call on evacuations. “We’ve seen nor’easters and we’ve seen hurricanes before,” Cooper said, “but this one is different.”

Memo to Dems: upholding norms is a two-way street Mona Charen

M

any of the current president’s critics on the left insist that they are standing up for norms of democratic conduct and for democracy itself. Some are sincere. Neal Katyal, for example, who served as principal deputy solicitor general in the Obama administration, endorsed Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court. Liberal feminist lawyer Lisa Blatt penned an op-ed in Politico praising Brett Kavanaugh. Her standard, she wrote, was whether the nominee was “unquestionably wellqualified, brilliant, has integrity and is within the mainstream of legal thought. Kavanaugh easily meets these criteria.” But the Democratic members of the Senate judiciary committee last week undermined the norms of decency they claim to uphold. They have contributed to the sense that things are out of control. The opening of the Kavanaugh hearing was a circus. One after another, Democratic senators, starting with Kamala Harris of California, interrupted and talked over the committee’s chairman as he was welcoming the nominee. Sen. Richard Blumenthal moved to adjourn the hearing, and was echoed by Senators Mazie Hirono and Cory Booker. At the same time, scads of protesters arose, at carefully timed intervals, to screech their incoherent bile at the entire process. They were escorted out. Chairman Grassley must have been tempted to ask the sergeant at arms to offer the same treatment to Harris et al. In fact, the Republicans must have been tempted to accept the Democrats’ challenge and cancel the hearing altogether. The Republicans have the votes, and can simply report out Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the floor. The only Democrat to object to this descent into chaos was Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California. In a nod to the zoo-like tenor of the hearing, she told Kavanaugh, “I’m sorry for the circumstances but we’ll get through it.” For this, she was predictably skewered by progressives. Next, Booker flamboyantly violated Senate rules (the penalty for which can include expulsion

from the body) by releasing some of Kavanaugh’s emails that were deemed “committee confidential.” Booker, whose first name might as well be “likely presidential candidate,” chose his subjects with all the subtlety of a jackhammer. One email contained Kavanaugh’s caution to George W. Bush’s transportation department that a particular program looked like a “naked racial set aside.” Booker implied that Kavanaugh’s use of the term implied racial insensitivity, but in fact, the Supreme Court had ruled set asides to be invalid, so it was completely sensible for the staff secretary, a lawyer and former Supreme Court clerk, to alert the agency that it was on shaky legal ground. The other email Booker waved about like a bloody shirt bore the subject line “racial profiling.” This email, dating from the early post-9/11 era, apparently contains Kavanaugh’s recommendation — drumroll please — that the government refrain from racial profiling! If Booker has made a fool of himself, and flouted Senate procedures in the process, most of his Democratic colleagues bought in, too. As Booker himself crowed after several of his colleagues, including minority leader Chuck Schumer, weighed in on his behalf, “This is about the closest I’ll ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.” Someone also took the step of leaking many other emails to The New York Times. If you’re truly concerned about norms, surely the rules of the Senate and ordinary civility and respect for one’s opposition should rank high. Yet Democrats were content to stoke absurd suspicions that Kavanaugh had snubbed the father of one the Parkland shooting victims, when any benefit of the doubt would have shown that it was simply a case of an unknown man approaching him and security intervening to usher him away. And in the fever swamps of the left, the accusation of a “white power” symbol blazed across Twitter for a few hours. Some of us take our lumps holding our own side to account. The Democrats need to reflect seriously on the fact that norms are more than a cudgel to use against Republicans. Mona Charen is a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

hey used to call Bill Clinton the Big Dog, because wherever he went, people paid attention. His growl always drew a crowd. Well, while President Donald Trump was napping last week, the Sleek Dog got off the porch. Finally. Former President Barack Obama had always planned to model his post-presidential life after the leads of other ex-presidents, like George W. Bush, who paints, or Jimmy Carter, who builds houses for poor people. He was, he said the other day, “intent on following a wise American tradition of ex-presidents exiting the political stage, making room for new voices and new ideas.” Turns out, the stakes are too high to remain above the fray. On Friday, in a speech to students at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and on Saturday at a rally in Anaheim for supporters of Democratic congressional candidates in contested Southern California districts, Obama made one thing clear: The muzzle is off. And you know what else? Since Trump has spent his presidency trashing Obama, dismantling his legacy piece by piece and making racists feel safe again, the Sleek Dog, whose aloof ways are legendary, has gotten downright snarly. He called Trump shameless. A fear monger. A demagogue promising “simple fixes to complex problems.” A bully. He accused Trump of “toxic corruption,” of being responsible for the country’s “downward spiral.” He blamed a spineless Republican Congress for allowing Trump to undermine the nation’s international alliances, to cozy up to Russian President Vladimir

Putin — “the former head of the KGB,” as Obama reminded the crowd — and for “actively blocking legislation that would defend our elections from Russian attack.” “In a healthy democracy,” Obama said, “there’s some checks and balances on this kind of behavior, this kind of inconsistency, but right now there’s none.” We are in a moment where no one who cares about the fate of the nation can comfortably sit on the sidelines. Welcome back, Sleek Dog. What took you so long? Doesn’t it seems like eons ago that Michelle Obama stood onstage at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia and delivered that memorable line about civility: “When they go low, we go high”? It seemed so reassuring at the time. Turns out, the line was better as prophecy than as advice. What followed was a torrent of pettiness and ugliness from Trump, his associates, and his fans. “Lock her up!” said the future national security adviser who later pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. Nice is so overrated. “We never know what kind of sludge is going to roll out of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.,” California Democratic Party Chairman Eric Bauman said Saturday as he welcomed about 750 Democrats to a small ballroom in the Anaheim Convention Center. Obama strolled onstage Saturday, dressed casually in slacks and shirtsleeves. He was less bombastic than he’d been in Illinois the day before. Hey, Sleek Dog can only stay nasty for so long. Unlike our current president, it’s just not in his nature. “There is no set of issues we can’t solve if we are working together,” Obama said, sounding very much like the optimistic cheerleader of years past. “It’s always tempting for politicians

for their own gain and people in power to try to see if they can divide people, scapegoat folks, turn them on each other, because when that happens, you get gridlock and government doesn’t work and people get cynical and decide not to participate. “And when people don’t participate, that vacuum is filled by lobbyists and special interests and we get into a downward spiral where people get discouraged and think nothing is going to make a difference. And that unfortunately is the spiral we have been on for the past couple years.” If Democrats retake the House in November — and a handful of traditionally Republican seats in California could make the difference — many citizens will look upon Obama’s return to the political fray this week as the beginning of an American restoration. A restoration of integrity. Of decency. Of honesty. And, possibly even, of the ideal of bipartisanship, strangled by the current chief executive, then dumped by the side of the road in Crazytown, Chief of Staff John F. Kelly’s nickname for the White House, according to Bob Woodward in his new book “Fear: Trump in the White House.” Trump’s response to Obama’s attack in Illinois? He said he fell asleep. It was his idea of a clever putdown. Instead, it inspired an outpouring of mockery on Twitter. (“Trump ‘fell asleep’ during Barack Obama’s speech because it wore him out looking up all those words in the dictionary,” quipped screenwriter Randy Mayem Singer.) In truth, it’s the Sleek Dog who has been asleep. “You can feel people saying, ‘Enough is enough,’” Obama said Saturday. “We’re going to kick off our bedrooms slippers, we’re putting on our marching shoes.” Nap time is over.

Conservative Kavanaugh could rule on every aspect of your life

Ann McFeatters

A

s the often tedious questions — and answers — proceed in the process of putting Donald Trump’s newest nominee on the Supreme Court, there are occasional nuggets that should give us pause. Have no doubt. Brett Kavanaugh, 53, is going to be on the nation’s highest court, ruling on every aspect of American life — workplace, bedroom, voting booth, school room, kitchen, environment, what happens to the body. He’s careful to tell us, repeatedly, that it’s not that he doesn’t like minorities, workers, women, environmentalists. He simply must abide by legal precedent. That’s

paramount. He wrote a book about it, “The Law of Judicial Precedent.” Kavanaugh’s reputation is as an extremely conservative judge. He thinks of himself as an umpire. He is considered a proponent of originalism, a manner of interpreting the Constitution that begins with the text and attempts to give that text the meaning it had when it was adopted, and textualism, a method of legal interpretation that relies on the plain text of a statute to determine its meaning. (When the Constitution was written, there were slaves, no environmentalists, women could not vote and workers had no rights.) So when workers at a horrific slaughterhouse whose bosses made them work in abominable conditions, often for 12 hours at a stretch without overtime pay, sued to form a union, Kavanaugh sided with the bosses. Legal precedent. Every other judge that looked at the case disagreed. Wasn’t that a little awkward,

suggested Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois. Not at all, said Kavanaugh. In fact, he’s proud of that opinion. He followed precedent. (Trump commuted the 27-year prison sentence of the slaughterhouse boss.) Then there was the 17-year-old girl who came across the border alone, without documents, and found she was pregnant. In the detention center where she was being held, she asked for an abortion. She dutifully went through all the channels — counseling, the waiting period, examination, etc. The clock was ticking. At 20 weeks the option of abortion would be closed to her. Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court judge, decided that she should not be able to get an abortion unless a foster home was found for her to properly advise her. That, of course, would take time. All things federal take time. The court was divided and ruled against the Trump administration’s policy of denying abortion to undocumented minors. The girl did

get an abortion. But the Supreme Court eventually tossed out the lower court’s ruling although that case was by then moot. Did Kavanaugh think he might have been wrong to argue for a delay? No, said Kavanagh. Precedent. She should not make such a decision alone even if the delay meant she no longer would have had a decision to make. Kavanaugh was asked about his time at the George W. Bush White House when the overriding top issue was torture of suspected terrorists. What was his role in that discussion? Didn’t have one, he said, despite the fact that he was in the loop at the White House. Just the staff secretary. From 2003 to 2006. Handling every paper that went to the president. Kavanaugh was caught off guard after he denied knowing about an aide’s theft of senators’ papers during a judicial nomination and then being shown emails by Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, that he did know.

Kavanaugh has said that a sitting president should not face indictments, subpoenas, investigations or legal actions. At some point, after special counsel Robert Mueller finishes his report on the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, Trump is likely to go before the Supreme Court on that issue. After Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, decided that former President Barack Obama could not name Merrick Garland, a highly respected jurist with bipartisan credentials, to the Supreme Court because Obama had only a year left in office, the stage was squarely set for more politicization of the high court. The Senate also decided said that it no longer would take 60 votes to confirm a justice, only a majority of 100. The politicization was complete. Kavanaugh is the icing on the cake.  Contact Tribune News Service columnist Ann McFeatters at amcfeatters@nationalpress.com.

HOW TO PICK SUSHI Do you love sushi but also love the ocean? Seafood Watch from the Monterey Bay Aquarium offers some tips for making your sushi dinner as sustainable as possible. • Look for U.S.-sourced Alaskan King Crab over crab from Asia, Russia and Argentina. • Search for pole-caught albacore from the U.S. or Canada as an alternative to bluefin tuna. • Yellowtail is best when fished with hooks and lines, but avoid yellowtail farmed in Australia and Japan.

ootball season has kicked off and that means one thing. Tailgating season has kicked off, too. Getting together with friends and enjoying food and laughs sometimes is more fun than the game itself. Last Saturday, a friend and I went to the StanfordUSC football game in Stanford, where we hooked up with Joe Zigulis for a pre-game tailgate party featuring Joe’s outstanding barbecue. Zigulis lives in Los Altos and has

cooked most of his life. He said he started barbecuing when he was 8 years old on a hibachi at his family’s home in San Mateo. For about the past seven years, Zigulis has operated Canyon Riders BBQ, a catering and competition barbecue business. You might have seen Joe and tasted his food at the Van Ruiten Rib Cook-Off in Lodi and other competitions over the years. When his schedule allows, Zigulis sets up his canopy, fires up his barrel and rotisserie grills just outside Stanford Stadium and invites friends to bring dishes and drinks for an all-out feast. Barbecue and friends are Zigulis’ passions. “I love the college atmosphere and feeling,” Zigulis said as he See HIGHFILL, B2

The wonderful jalapeño shines cooked or preserved. [ARI LEVAUX]

Preserve jalapeños now for chipotles, sriracha and more heat all winter By Ari LeVaux More Content Now

I

f I were stranded on a desert island with one type of chile pepper, it would definitely be the jalapeño. No single pepper wears as many sombreros as the pride of Jalapa, Veracruz, Mexico. The jalapeño shines in two distinct areas: cooked fresh and preserved. This time of year, when fresh, local jalapeños can affordably be acquired by the boxload, I focus on preservation — which is another way of saying “jalapeño condiment making.” Sriracha sauce, for example, is made from red, ripe jalapeños. Mexican escabeche, meanwhile, is a style of pickles made with carrots, herbs and green jalapeños. Green jalapeños can also be roasted like a New Mexico green chile, and with comparable flavor. I’ve enjoyed roasted jalapeños dressed in butter and Maggi (a type of Mexican soy sauce) alongside the escabeche at the salsa bars that grace Mexican restaurants. Back in the day, farmers would pick enough green jalapeños to enjoy fresh and bring to market, and at the end of the season the chile plants would be full of unpicked red jalapenos. Following an ancient practice, the farmers would leave these ripe peppers on the plant as long as possible, allowing them to shrivel

and dehydrate, before smoking them to complete the dehydration process. These Aztec-style smoked red jalapeños are today known as chipotle peppers, and their sweet, smoky, earthy flavor is important in many dishes. Meanwhile, jalapeños of both hues have taken off among Asian Americans. Sriracha sauce is as ubiquitous at American Vietnamese and Thai restaurants as ketchup is at a burger joint, and sliced green jalapeños garnish virtually every bowl of pho that is sold in America, while pickled jalapeños are a common fixture in American banh mi Vietnamese sandwiches. In my general approach to dealing with the seasonal glut of my favorite pepper, I try to emulate the jalapeño farmers of Jalapa. When they are green, I enjoy the fresh jalapeños in my meals, and make pickles. When they turn red, I make chipotle. My current preferred form of preserved green jalapeño is based on Vietnamese-style pickled jalapeño slices, a la banh mi. These pickled slices are an easy way to store jalapeños for later, and they are even easier to scoop onto everything, where they rightly belong. Smoking chipotles When it’s time to smoke red jalapeños into chipotles, my

technique is less refined. I trim and clean the red jalapeños the same way as the greens, then roast them on the grill. When the skins have blistered, I move the peppers away from direct heat, add some wood chips to the grill and close the top so the peppers smoke, adjusting the airflow as necessary. When the wood chips have all burnt off, I finish drying the jalapeños in the sun or a dehydrator. One could smoke them for days, Aztec-style, but a touch of smoke is fine with me. When crispy-dry, store them in airtight bags in the freezer. Remember, this is a process that has been in use for thousands of years, and there are a lot of ways to smoke a red jalapeño. As long as you don’t touch your eyes before washing your hands, messing around with jalapeños is a tolerant process. Pickled Jalapeño Slices • Jalapeños • Vinegar (white or cider) • Salt • Sugar (In order to properly trim the jalapeños, you must know how hot they are relative to your heat tolerance. If they’re not too hot you can leave the seeds and inner membranes in place. I brought a load of jalapeños home from the farmers market recently,

and they were so hot I had to clean them carefully, then wash my hands with equal dedication.) Begin by slicing off the stem end of the jalapeño. If the peppers are too hot, use the tip of a narrow knife to carve out the seed-bearing membranes. Slice the peppers crosswise as thinly as possible, and pack them into a sterile jar. When all of your peppers are packed, add vinegar to each jar until it’s full, then pour the vinegar out of the jar(s) and into a sauce pan. Bring vinegar to a simmer on medium. As it’s heating, add two teaspoons sugar and a teaspoon of salt to each pint jar (adjusting sugar and salt quantities accordingly for larger or smaller jars). When the vinegar reaches a simmer, pour it into the jars and screw on clean lids and rings. Let cool, the place jars in fridge, where they can last for longer than you can refrain from eating them. If you’re doing massive quantities and don’t have space in the fridge, process the jars for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath, which will render them shelf-stable. To use, simply scoop the pickled jalapeño slices from the jar and apply them to your food. You’ll get the hang of it.

WOLFGANG PUCK’S KITCHEN

Add a retro touch with a devilishly good egg recipe Wolfgang Puck

Y

ou can tell when a recipe has stood the test of time when it makes regular, repeated comebacks. For a perfect example, consider deviled eggs. In my more than five decades cooking professionally, I’ve seen them go repeatedly from appetizer favorite to jokey has-been to hip retro rediscovery — as they seem to be right now. Deviled eggs trace back at least to the 18th century, and you’ll find variations in cuisines worldwide. But the preparation has remained basically unchanged down through the years and across many borders. Hard-boil eggs and then cool, peel and halve them. Pop out their yolks, mash them (or pass them through a sieve for fluffier results), and mix them with enrichments and spicy seasonings (the source of the “deviled” adjective). Finally, return the

yolk mixture to the whites — and watch them disappear! I know many people who say that they find it difficult to eat two hardboiled eggs but happily gobble up even more deviled eggs. It’s understandable. The stuffed halves are so irresistibly delicious that eating just one creates a strong desire for another. And, with the filling often piped decoratively into the whites, they’re just so pretty that you can’t resist picking up that gateway piece. Deviled eggs are also so simple to make that you can prepare them easily for a small dinner party or a large cocktail gathering. Cooking and peeling the eggs calls for the most careful attention. I prefer using eggs that have been packed and refrigerated for seven to 10 days after they were laid, since time and cool temperatures slightly change their internal chemistry to make the whites less likely to stick to the inside of the shells after boiling. Since most eggs reach supermarkets three to five days after they were laid, it makes sense to leave them in your refrigerator another four days to a week before cooking. I start

• 1 tablespoon brine from bottled dill pickles • 1 teaspoon honey • 1 teaspoon minced dill pickle • 1 teaspoon minced yellow onion • Sea salt • Freshly ground black pepper • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives or Italian parsley • Paprika (optional)

them in cold water to prevent the shells from cracking, as they sometimes do when cold eggs are added to already boiling water. And I cool and peel the eggs submerged in ice water, which helps you ease the shells from the whites more cleanly and easily. In the following recipe, which my friend and fellow chef Marian Getz prepared with me recently during my 20th-anniversary appearance on Home Shopping Network, the seasonings are simple but lively. They include mustard, dill pickle,

DEVILED EGGS Makes 24 halves • 12 large eggs • ¼ cup good-quality mayonnaise, plus extra as needed • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Meanwhile, fill a mixing bowl with ice cubes and water. When the timer goes off after 9 minutes, drain the eggs and immediately transfer them to the ice water to cool for about 5 minutes. To peel each egg, gently but firmly tap its shell underwater against the side of the bowl to crack it all over; then, with your fingertips, gradually peel off the shell underwater. Transfer the peeled eggs to a double layer of paper towels to drain, removing any

With a sharp knife, carefully cut each egg in lengthwise in half. With your fingertips, gently pop the yolk from each half into a fine-meshed metal strainer set on top of a mixing bowl, placing the whites cut sides up on a large plate or platter. With the back of a large, sturdy metal or wooden spoon, press the yolks through the strainer into the bowl, scraping off any yolks adhering to the underside of the strainer. Add to the yolks the mayonnaise, mustard, pickle juice, honey, pickle and onion. Stir until thoroughly blended, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer the yolk mixture to a piping bag fitted with the star tip. Close the bag and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Cover the egg white halves with plastic wrap and refrigerate as well. Before serving, remove the egg whites from the refrigerator and uncover them. Remove the piping bag, and pipe the yolk mixture decoratively into each egg white half. Garnish with chives or parsley and paprika (if using), and serve immediately.

loaded chicken thighs and legs covered in an al pastor marinade on the grate of his barrel cooker/smoker. “Smiles. That’s the biggest deal, is to make people happy.” Joe’s menu included dryrubbed St. Louis ribs with hot and sweet sauces on the side, charcoal-cooked and lightly smoked chicken al pastor and two styles of homemade smoked sausage — one studded with habañero cheese and the other studded with jalapenos and cheddar cheese. Joe grinds rib trimmings for the sausage meat and forces the mixture into natural casings. Other items folks brought for the buffet included macaroni and cheese, corn bread, watermelon, salads, antipasti on skewers and guacamole and chips. To wash down all that goodness, Joe said he prefers a cold beer, but when he’s in the mood for a glass of wine, he likes a full-bodied red. That was music to my ears. My contribution to the party was two wines that I believed would pair with Joe’s barbecue and the sides: the 2012 Lucas ZinStar Vineyard Zinfandel and the 2013 LangeTwins Single Barrel Cabernet Franc Miller Vineyard. Zinfandel and barbecue are a match made in heaven, especially Lodi Zinfandel with its lush fruit flavors and medium tannin. The ZinStar vineyard of head-pruned Zinfandel covers 3.5 acres behind the Lucas Winery tasting room on Davis Road and was planted on its own roots in 1933 in the heart of Lodi’s Mokelumne River sub-Amercian Viticultural Area. Farmed certified organic, ZinStar is Lodi’s first single-vineyard estate bottling, beginning with the 1978 vintage and continuing every year since, according to a blog post “Lodi’s single-vineyard wines (Part 1: west-side growths)” written by Randy Caparoso for LodiWine.com. “By choice (owner David Lucas and winemaker/ spouse Heather Pyle’s house style) as much as terroir, produces a medium-bodied style of Zinfandel of moderate alcohol, zesty natural acidity and distinctively toned, lush fruit qualities,” Caparoso wrote. ZinStar’s acid and fruit balance and pepper spice were in absolute harmony with the ribs that had been rubbed with salt, black pepper and spices and gently smoked. The wine was a hit with all those who tried it. As was the 2013 LangeTwins Single Barrel Cabernet Franc from the

onion, honey, salt and pepper. Feel free to try your own variations, such a little hot sauce or paprika, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce or minced anchovy. Chef Getz likes to use a pastry bag with a star tip to pipe the filling so beautifully that I couldn’t resist eating them myself, right on the air!

First, hard-boil the eggs: Put the eggs in a saucepan or pot large enough to hold them in a single layer and add enough cold water to cover them by 1 inch (2.5 cm). Put the pan, uncovered, over medium-high heat, and bring the water to a boil; cover the pan, remove it from the heat and set a timer for 9 minutes.

Miller Vineyard on the edge of the Lodi and Clarksburg AVAs. The Miller Vineyard is planted to Bordeaux varieties on sandy loam soil and is farmed by the Lange family and certified by the Lodi Rules for Sustainable Winegrowing. “We thinned down the Cabernet Franc to really focus on the deepest colored bunches and the best bunches,” said fifth-generation winegrower Aaron Lange, vineyard operations manager with LangeTwins Family Winery and Vineyards. “We were really able to fruit-thin to the point where we feel it produces the best wine possible.” Cabernet Franc is one of the five noble Bordeaux varieties and is closely related to Cabernet Sauvignon. In France, Cabernet Franc is primarily a blending

grape, but it’s an interesting, fun wine on its own. LangeTwins’ first vintage of the variety has subtle perfume on the nose with green olive, black cherry and blackberry flavors, chewy tannin and mellow smokiness after three years in French oak barrels. The savory character and high acidity are perfect with barbecue. LangeTwins’ Single Barrel wines, available to wine club members, represent the best from each vintage and are crafted by David Akiyoshi.

We start our cheese bread with all-purpose flour and add whole milk and sour cream for a clean, creamy flavor and rich, moist texture. Just a few tablespoons of butter adds enough richness without greasiness, and using less fat makes the texture heartier and less cakelike. Most recipes for cheese bread call for shredded cheese. We prefer our cheese (cheddar or Asiago) cut into small chunks, which, when mixed into the dough and baked, create luscious, cheesy pockets throughout the bread. For added cheesy flavor and a crisp, browned crust, we coat the pan and sprinkle the top of the loaf with grated Parmesan. Runof-the-mill cheese bread is at once dry and greasy, with almost no cheese flavor at all. We wanted a rich, moist loaf topped with a bold, cheesy crust. QUICK CHEESE BREAD Servings: 10 Start to finish: 1½ hours Chef’s Note: A mild Asiago, crumbled into ¼- to ½-inch pieces, can be used instead of the cheddar. Aged Asiago that is as firm as Parmesan is too sharp and piquant.

a false indication. The texture of the bread improves as it cools, so resist the urge to slice the loaf while it is piping hot. Do not use skim milk for this bread. We developed this recipe using a loaf pan that measures 8½-by-4½-inches; if you use a 9-by 5-inch loaf pan, start checking for doneness 5 minutes earlier than advised in the recipe. • 3 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated on large holes of box grater (1 cup) • 2½ cups (12½ ounces) allpurpose flour • 1 tablespoon baking powder • 1 teaspoon salt • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper • 1/8 teaspoon pepper • 4 ounces extra-sharp cheddar cheese, cut into ½-inch cubes (1 cup) • 1 cup whole milk • ½ cup sour cream • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled • 1 large egg, lightly beaten Adjust oven rack to middle

In large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, salt, cayenne, and pepper to combine. Using rubber spatula, mix in cheddar, breaking up clumps, until cheese is coated with flour. In medium bowl, whisk together milk, sour cream, melted butter, and egg. Using rubber spatula, gently fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients until just combined (batter will be heavy and thick; do not overmix). Scrape batter into prepared loaf pan; spread to sides of pan and level surface with rubber spatula. Sprinkle remaining ½ cup Parmesan evenly over surface. Bake until loaf is deep golden brown and toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes, rotating pan halfway through baking. Let cool in pan on wire rack for 5 minutes, then invert loaf onto wire rack. Turn right side up and let cool until warm, about 45 minutes. Serve. (To freeze, wrap cooled loaf tightly with double layer of aluminum foil and freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to serve, adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 375 F. Bake wrapped loaf until it yields under gentle pressure, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake until exterior is crisp, about 5 minutes longer. Let loaf cool on wire rack for 15 minutes before serving.)

Giving your child a tasty school lunch without turning routine upside down By Angela Davis The Washington Post

Do you hear that? It is the sound of parents everywhere collectively exhaling as kids return to school. My days working from home have become eerily quiet, and the pantry and fridge are finally safe from daily raids by a bored teenager and a toddler with an appetite rivaling “The Hungry Caterpillar.” This brief celebratory moment is often followed by dread, once I realize it is time to figure out a game plan for school lunches. As a single mom to two children with busy schedules, I find a no-nonsense approach ends up working best. When I am grocery shopping, I look for lunch options that are affordable, reasonably nutritious and do not require a ton of prep. • For kids who prefer to graze, lose the concept of a structured meal. My 4-year-old daughter is happy munching on an assortment of chopped grilled chicken or sliced salami, cheese cubes, raisins, apple slices and crackers. Compartmentalized plastic storage containers or Bento boxes are perfect for lunches like this. Older kids might appreciate extra protein in the form of protein bars, boiled eggs or hummus accompanied by something hearty to dip, such as pita chips and sliced veggie sticks. • Last night’s leftovers can find a second home in school lunches. I am often thinking about how I will repurpose a meal for lunch before I choose to cook it for dinner, and in many cases I will cook more of it for just that reason. Soups and stews can be reheated in the morning and poured into an insulated thermos to safely stay warm until lunch time. • If you often have a smorgasbord of options in the fridge, consider grain or pasta bowls for your more adventurous child. Start by filling the base of a small food storage container

with cooked rice, quinoa or other grains. Pile on some roasted veggies or raw salad ingredients. Add your protein and some sort of dressing will help tie everything together. If you have a favorite storebought vinaigrette, use it! If not, it only takes a couple minutes to shake up your own vinaigrette in a Mason jar to use throughout the week. You can pack this dressing in

a smaller container for your child to drizzle over the grain bowl when it is time to dig in. • Sandwiches are traditional for good reason. There is no shame in packing a “regular” sandwich alongside chips, a piece of fresh fruit and a drink. (Before you reach for the peanut butter and jelly, just make sure your child’s school has not implemented a nutfree policy.)

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Talk can be cheap and it can be expensive, too. Mostly, you’ll pay in attention, which you’re likely to give to those who talk less, not more. GEMINI (May 21-June 21): It’s as if you’re standing on the intersection of life pushing the “walk” button, unsure if it will actually have an influence on the traffic pattern. CANCER (June 22-July 22): If what the Dalai Lama said is true, there is no such thing as righteous hatred. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may find that you keep asking the same question to which you already have the answer. That’s because you don’t like the answer. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Ignore negative attitudes and try to connect with the goodness in others.

Best Bets Which of this season’s hopefuls will make it into the finale? We’ll know at the end of the new two-hour episode “Battle of the Beef; The Semi Final.” First up, the top five home cooks face a series of skills tests involving a deceptively common protein: good ol’ beef. After an elimination, the Final Four split into teams to prepare a great entree for chefs Daniel Boulud, Jonathan Waxman and Lidia Bastianich.

‘World of Dance’ 9 p.m. on NBC The best act from each of the four divisions takes the stage for the last time as Season 2 wraps with the two-hour “World Final.” Judges Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough, Ne-Yo and host-mentor Jenna Dewan evaluate the performances for artistry, precision and athleticism before the season champion and winner of the $1 million grand prize is announced. This finale also features performances by Dewan and the judges, as well as the Season 1 winners, hip-hop duo Les Twins.

‘Ancient Invisible Cities’ 9 p.m. on PBS/KVIE PBS/KQED Professor Darius Arya closes out his threepart limited series by exploring Istanbul, which has been fought over by everyone from the Greeks and the Romans to the Ottomans and the Turks. As a result, this ancient city has been destroyed and rebuilt time and again, but cutting-edge 3-D technology helps Arya

digitally peel back layers of history to examine how Istanbul has managed to reinvent itself over and over again.

‘American Horror Story: Apocalypse’ 10 p.m. on FX Series mainstay Sarah Paulson returns, in her character from the earlier “Coven” season, as this hit horror anthology opens its eighth edition. As usual, executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are being maddeningly coy about most details, but other “Coven” actresses — including Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe, Lily Rabe and Frances Conroy — also will reprise their witchy characters. Jessica Lange, who won Emmys for her work in two previous seasons, also will appear, while Joan Collins makes her “AHS” debut.

‘Greenleaf’ 10 p.m. on OWN Patti LaBelle guest stars in the new episode “The Underdog” as celebrity Pastor Maxine Patterson, who gets a visit from Lady Mae (Lynn Whitfield) shortly before the latter is forced to endure a last attempt by the Bishop (Keith David) to win her back during a party. Elsewhere, Connie (Jen Harper) surprises Grace (Merle Dandridge) by asking whether she might have any interest in running Calvary herself.

DEAR ABBY: When I was a teenager, there were many times when I made things awkward. It continues today. I try to have normal conversations with people, but when I do, I have nothing to say. My mind goes blank, so I keep quiet and walk away. I feel like the odd person out each time and like I’m not good enough, and it really sucks. The only time I’m successful socially with people is at work because I’m kind of forced to be. I really want to make friends and possibly get a girl in my life, but it’s almost impossible to do with my

social skills. This is so depressing and disappointing that I’m almost ready to quit trying. I need some tips and guidance. Do you have any? — FRUSTRATED GUY IN FAIRBANKS DEAR FRUSTRATED GUY: I think so. If you think you are alone in having this problem, you are mistaken. The majority of people have the same insecurities you do. No one is born knowing how to be social. Social adeptness is a skill like any other. It can be learned and, with some practice and effort, polished until it becomes second nature. You don’t have to be handsome to be well-groomed. You don’t have to be brilliant or witty, either. Part of being social is showing an interest in other people. Ask them about what they think and encourage them to share their interests and opinions. And when they tell you, be a

8 p.m. on Fox LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You’ve just about forgotten that someone wronged you, probably because you’ve trained your focus on the many things they did right by you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): A simple nod to the universe will set your day off on the right note. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): There’s something controllable in moods if you’re able to take a mental step back and witness your own emotional landscape. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you give too much and don’t let anyone give back, people will be robbed of the pleasure of completing the circle of reciprocity. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): One way to clear your mind is to talk it out. Perhaps a stranger or a professional will provide the best insight. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): As long as people can change, the world can change. Be the agitator.

SPORTS Fiers dominates, still perfect with Athletics By Todd Karpovich The Associated Press

BALTIMORE — The acquisition of Mike Fiers has coincided with the Oakland Athletics’ surge toward the postseason. With a pitching staff decimated by injuries, the Athletics will be leaning heavily on the right-hander to help anchor the rotation. Fiers remained unbeaten in an Oakland uniform, working six solid innings to lead the Athletics past the Baltimore Orioles 3-2 on a damp Tuesday night. “I feel like if I do my job, I’m going to get a win,” Fiers said. “Keeping a team within a couple runs with the way our team is and the way we swing the bats, I find myself in a good chance to win us the game.”

Oakland extended its winning streak to five games and is 33-15 since the All-Star break, the best mark in the majors during that span. The Athletics hold the second AL wild-card spot behind the Yankees. Fiers (12-6), who was acquired from the Tigers on Aug. 6, allowed one run and four hits with seven strikeouts and a walk. He is 5-0 in seven starts with the A’s and has won a career-best six straight decisions overall. “It seems like other than one (start), maybe, that’s pretty much what he’s been giving us,” Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. “Six innings and a lead when he leaves. Seems to get a little stronger at times as the game goes along.” Stephen Piscotty went 3 for 4, including an RBI single in a threerun third inning. He extended his

hitting streak to 12 games and has driven in a run in six straight. “It just seems like every time we need somebody up in a big situation, (Piscotty) comes up and either hits a home run or gets a big hit to extend the lead or whatever it will be,” Melvin said. Adam Jones was back in the starting lineup for the first time since last Wednesday and had a pair of hits for Baltimore, which has lost five straight and has the majors’ worst record (41-103). Jonathan Villar drove in both Orioles runs with a homer off Fiers in the sixth and a single in the eighth off Lou Trivino. Jeurys Familia, acquired from the Mets on July 21, worked a perfect ninth for his 18th save overall. See FIERS, C2

ALAMEDA — Losing didn’t get any easier for Jon Gruden in his nine seasons away from coaching. Gruden’s much-anticipated return from the broadcast booth to the sideline for Oakland ended in disappointment as the Raiders were outclassed in a 33-13 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night. The performance showed how far the Raiders have to go to get back to the level they were at when Gruden ended his first stint here more than 16 years ago. “They feel the same. It stinks,” Gruden said Tuesday of losing. “It’s not very fun. We have work to do. It’s obvious. We have work to do. We’re going to build this football team back. It might not happen tonight. We’re going to keep laying bricks. We have a great group of guys and we’ll be

ready for the next battle.” Gruden’s return to the Raiders got off to a fast start with a 75-yard drive capped by Marshawn Lynch’s 10-yard touchdown run on the opening possession. The Raiders were then held to two field goals the rest of the way thanks to three interceptions by Derek Carr, a lack of a consistent run game and the inability to get the ball to receivers Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson on the outside. The defense wilted in the second half as Todd Gurley took over the game and Jared Goff used play action to find holes to throw downfield. The Raiders struggled to generate any kind of pass rush just over a week after trading star edge rusher Khalil Mack with rookies Arden Key, P.J. Hall and Maurice Hurst failing to make big impacts.

Bulldogs beat McNair, post 12th sweep of season under new coach Vaughns By Kevin Niendorf Record Correspondent

TRACY — Taking over for a legendary volleyball coach at Tracy High, Cat Ebojo Vaughns was fully aware of what she was getting herself into when she was offered the job.

But all she’s done is lead the Bulldogs to a 12-3 non-league record, including a sweep of visiting McNair on Tuesday, as she continues to win over both players and fans filling the Bulldogs’ stands. The 25-8, 25-10, 25-8 victory gave Tracy its 12th sweep of the young season. “I think offensively we’ve improved a lot since the beginning of the season,” said sophomore Natalie Laiolo, who had eight kills,

five aces and 14 assists. “We’ve gotten better mentally and physically and that really showed in this game. I think our defense is sometimes where we can get lost, so we’ll have to improve on that because we have a lot more to come in our season.” Also leading the Bulldogs was Briahna Garcia with seven kills, three aces and two blocks, Teia See TRACY, C3

Salmon anglers catch limits outside Golden Gate By Dan Bacher Record Correspondent

Salmon fishing outside the Golden Gate Bridge has been outstanding over the past few days as charter boat captains with light passenger loads landing limits of Chinooks. “The salmon are still biting,” Joe Gallia Sr. of New Easy Rider Sportfishing in Berkeley said. “We’re catching salmon every day and are seeing really good fishing this September.” The New Easy Rider returned to the dock with six limits to 24

pounds on Sunday, 12 limits to 27 pounds on Monday and 16 limits to 24 pounds on Tuesday morning. Other boats that found great fishing on Monday included the Hog Heaven (Sausalito), 18 limits of salmon to 22 pounds; the Lovely Martha (SF), 13 limits salmon to 23 pounds; the New Rayann (Sausalito), 12 limits of salmon to 22 pounds; the Outer Limits (Sausalito) , 16 limits of salmon to 24 pounds; and the Salty Lady (Sausalito), seven limits of salmon to 30# “The weather has been good near shore off the Marin County coast,

although it’s been windy offshore over the past few days,” Gallia said. “We’ve been fishing off Stinson Beach, Rocky Point and the edge of the shipping channel.” “The fish are nice, bright fish, including small, medium and large kings, but the overall average is around 10 pounds,” he said. The salmon are not just going after bait, but are hitting Apex spoons and other lures. Anglers are trolling at 30 to 45 feet deep. The ocean salmon season ends on October 31. The New Easy Rider will continue fishing through late October. Information: (707)

422-2050. Delta stripers/sturgeon: If you want to catch striped bass, now is a great time to hit the Delta. “We’ve caught limits of stripers every day except for one from August 1 through today,” Dave Hammond of Delta Pro Fishing said. “This is by far the best fishing I’ve seen in over a decade.” On his latest trolling adventure on Saturday, four anglers landed their two fish limits, in addition to releasing another 12 keepers and three undersized fish.

The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Mike Foltynewicz pitched a sixhitter to win for the first time in nearly a month, Charlie Culberson hit a two-run homer after entering as an injury replacement and the Atlanta Braves sent the San Francisco Giants to a 10th straight defeat with a 4-1 win Tuesday night. Foltynewicz (11-9) retired 13 straight batters after Evan Longoria's two-out

double in the first. The righthander carried a shutout into the ninth before allowing Brandon Crawford's two-out RBI single. Atlanta's starter struck out seven and walked one while finishing with 108 pitches. He was still hitting the high 90s on the radar gun in the late innings. It marked Foltynewicz's first victory since Aug. 13 against Miami, ending a four-start winless stretch during which he was 0-2 following a threestart winning streak.

Dansby Swanson added an RBI double in the eighth for the NL East-leading Braves, who moved 6 ½ games ahead of the Phillies in the division. Ender Inciarte had a sacrifice fly in the fourth then Culberson followed Ronald Acuna Jr.'s leadoff triple in the fifth with his 11th home run. He replaced injured third baseman Johan Camargo, who exited with left groin tightness. The Giants have just their third double-digit losing

streak since moving West in 1958 — also in 1985 and 1996 — and sixth since 1908. The club's last 11-game skid was in 1951, when the New York Giants went on to win an NL pennant. Giants lefty Andrew Suarez (6-11) gave up three runs and six hits in six innings, struck out three and walked three. SEPT. 11 REMEMBERED: A moment of silence was held before the anthem to remember the victims of Sept. 11, 2001.

Seahawks WR out with MCL injury The Associated Press

RENTON, Wash. — Pete Carroll insisted through the offseason the Seattle Seahawks would return to their roots of being based around a solid run game. They’ll need to be that way at least in the short term, with wide receiver Doug Baldwin likely out the next couple of games because of an MCL injury in his right knee suffered in the season-opening loss to Denver. Carroll, a former Pacific player and assistant coach, was evasive about an exact timeline on Baldwin and vague about the specifics of the injury. He said it would be “maybe a couple of weeks” for Baldwin, but would only say it would be difficult for Baldwin to be able to play next Monday against Chicago. As for the injury itself, Carroll said “he does have MCL issues,” but provided no other details. No matter how long Baldwin is out, it’s bad news for Seattle’s offense, which showed flashes in the opener against Denver but had too much inconsistency, especially on third downs. Rams THOUSAND OAKS — Los Angeles Rams wide receiver and return specialist Pharoh Cooper is expected to miss several weeks because of a sprained ankle. Head coach Sean McVay said Tuesday that Cooper might need surgery to repair the injury he suffered in the third quarter of the Rams’ 33-13 win over Oakland on Monday night. McVay said Cooper is getting a second opinion. “He’s going to be out for some time right now, so that’s a big loss for us,” the coach said. The Rams might be forced to sign a return specialist this week as Cooper’s backup, wide receiver Mike Thomas, is also dealing with an injury. McVay said Thomas tweaked his groin and is going to meet with a specialist.

(Field) and we had a pregame workout and he wasn’t ready to go.” Davis’ absence also means more potential opportunities on offense for Green Bay’s three drafted rookie receivers behind the top trio of Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison. Broncos ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos filled their roster vacancy by re-signing safety Shamarko Thomas, who was with them in training camp. After spending his first four seasons in Pittsburgh, Thomas led the Buffalo Bills with nine special teams tackles in 12 games last season. Following his release from the Colts during the preseason, Thomas signed with the Broncos, who had just placed safety Jamal Carter on IR with a torn hamstring. But Thomas didn’t make the initial 53-man roster. Thomas, who has 38 career special teams stops, replaced wide receiver/kick returner Isaiah McKenzie, who was released Monday. Falcons FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — The Atlanta Falcons placed linebacker Deion Jones on injured reserve on Tuesday, taking a second 2017 Pro Bowler from the defense in less than a week. The move with Jones comes after coach Dan Quinn on Friday announced safety Keanu Neal suffered a torn ligament in his left knee and will miss the remainder of the season. Jones hurt his foot in Thursday night’s 18-12 opening loss at Philadelphia . Quinn said Tuesday that Jones will require surgery, but is expected to return this season. Jones led the defense with nine tackles, one interception and two passes defensed against the Eagles. It was his seventh career interception.

Packers Panthers GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Green Bay Packers have placed receiver and return man Trevor Davis on injured reserve, and claimed cornerback Deante Burton off waivers from the Atlanta Falcons. Davis missed the season opener against Chicago after adding him to the injury report just a couple of hours before the game on Sunday. The third-year player and primary returner also missed much of training camp with a sore hamstring. “When Trevor showed up at the stadium, his hamstring was really bothering him — more than I think even he expected,” coach Mike McCarthy said Monday. “So we took him out on Lambeau

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Panthers will be without threetime Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen and second-team All-Pro Bowl right tackle Daryl Williams for the foreseeable future. The team announced that Olsen re-fractured the same right foot that kept him out of nine games last season in Carolina’s 16-8 win over Dallas on Sunday. Olsen will not have surgery and will be reevaluated on a “monthly basis.” He’ll remain on the team’s roster in hopes that he can return later in the season as he did a year ago. Williams suffered an undisclosed knee injury and will need surgery.

“When Trevor showed up at the stadium, his hamstring was really bothering him — more than I think even he expected. So we took him out on Lambeau (Field) and we had a pregame workout and he wasn’t ready to go.” Mike McCarthy, Green Bay Packers coach

Goalie Marlise van Tonder of the Pacific field hockey team earned her first America East Conference defensive player of the week honor on Tuesday. Van Tonder had a stellar performance on the road in Michigan last weekend. The redshirt-sophomore allowed three goals through three games and stopped 13 of 14 shots against Big Ten foe Michigan State in a double overtime battle, which the Tigers won 2-1. “This is a fitting accolade for one of the best goalkeepers in the world,” said head coach Andy Smith of van Tonder. “She has been fantastic so far this season.” Van Tonder has two shutout victories for the Tigers. She has notched 60 saves and holds a 1.38 goals against average. The South Africa native played in the Field Hockey World Cup over the summer in London. She became the first Pacific player in

the 41-year history of the program to be selected for the World Cup. The Tigers host Kent State at 3 p.m. Friday at the Pacific Field Hockey Turf. HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL

McNair (2-5) was led by libero Aliah Cortez, who had 10 digs, while teammate Miette Mason added three aces. Coach Ashleigh Hedstrom said she hopes the Eagles will become better playing the team that went to the Division I state playoffs each of the past two seasons. “I think the girls really learned about having a faster defense and a faster offense,” Hedstrom said. “The girls got a good look at what a really good team looks like. In practice they have something to look forward to, and hopefully that will resonate through the rest of our season and conference.” Vaughns isn’t about to say the Bulldogs will get back to state, but Tracy took third place in the elite division the Central California Tournament. Still, she believes there is plenty to improve upon before attacking the demanding Tri-City Athletic League schedule. “We definitely need a lot of work on defense,” Vaughns said. “It’s apparent we have pretty good firepower, but we can’t rely on that. We need to be more consistent at stopping balls at the net. We’re a work in progress, and we have a little bit of time to get it together before league begins on Monday.” Vaughns, herself, said that at first glance people may not perceive her as a typical volleyball coach because of her lack of height. However, she has been around the game her entire life dating back to even before being

a four-year starter at Encinal High in Alameda. Still, following former coach Mahina McCamey wasn’t easy considering in McCamey’s last five years alone her teams compiled an impressive 135-39 record, including the postseason. Vaughns spent nearly a decade coaching at intracity rival West as a varsity assistant coach and junior varsity head coach. “This (Tracy) program is full of history and success, and there’s a lot of tradition here in athletics,” Vaughns said. “I definitely wanted to be a part of it and I’m very happy I got the position. We’ve been working hard, and I’ve introduced some new concepts to the girls and they’ve adapted well. “I’ve tried to put a little stamp on this program because their last

GRUDEN

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr talks with head coach Jon Gruden during the second half against the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night in Oakland. The Rams won 33-13.

“They have to keep improving,” Gruden said. “They have to keep seeing schemes. Keep their pad level down. Using their hands better. Just improving. We have to get Arden Key some better looks. When they run all those jet sweeps, there’s a lot of eye candy out there. It’s tough.” Carr said after the game that this loss felt different than past ones because of how positive Gruden was after the game to the team. Gruden said it felt just like any other loss and he’s trying to avoid that same feeling this week when Oakland travels to Denver (1-0). “Losses all feel painful,” he said. “Especially Monday night losses when you have to get up and get ready for a team like Denver. Put a lot into it. We put a lot of time into this. I thought he was on his way in the first half. He was 20 for 24, I read, doing some really good things. ... I don’t have any doubts that Derek Carr is going to be great and I can’t wait to get started and get ready for the Broncos.” There were a few positives to take from the game, including Jared Cook catching nine passes for 180 yards to set a franchise record for a tight end; solid play from the tackles in rookie Kolton Miller’s first career game and Donald Penn’s first career start at right tackle; and running back Jalen

coach was here for 15 years and she did an amazing job,” she added. “I’ve got big shoes to fill. Trust me when I say it took me the first two weeks for me to get over feeling like I was trying to improve myself to folks.” When the Bulldogs rattled off an 8-0 run to start the season (all by sweeps), that helped Vaughns feel more accepted among the Tracy culture. Laiolo is among the players who have come to appreciate what Vaughns has brought to the green and gold campus. “She definitely pushes us more,” said Laiolo. “She’s always on us, and she gets us to focus on the days ahead. We never dwell on the past, we always move on. She corrects our mistakes then and there, which is really good for our team.”

Richard providing a good receiving threat out of the backfield with nine catches for 55 yards. While Cook was Oakland’s best player in the opener, two of Carr’s three interceptions came on passes to the tight end. The first came in the end zone in the first half when Cook had one-on-one coverage against John Johnson but Carr underthrew the pass. The second came on a miscommunication in the fourth quarter that led to Marcus Peters’ 50-yard interception return for a TD. “There was some confusion,” Gruden said. “Derek thought Jared was going to stay on the move and Jared sat down. That goes on me. That’s coaching. We have to do a better job of defining our routes at times.” WR BRYANT IS BACK: Martavis Bryant, the wide receiver acquired

for a third-round draft pick and released at the cutdown to 53 players, returned to the Raiders Tuesday, with sources confirming reports that originated with the NFL Network. According to another NFL Network report, Bryant would be signed to one-year contract and could play as soon as Sunday against the Denver Broncos. Bryant told Pittsburgh-based ESPN reporter Jeremy Fowler he was pleased to be back, saying he was “thankful for the opportunity to take care of his family. Bryant was with the Steelers from 2014-17. When Bryant was released, Gruden and GM Reggie McKenzie said it was for “competitive” reasons and not because of a looming year-long drug suspension from the league for violation of the policy on substance abuse.

Adams scores, USA shuts out Mexico By Teresa M. Walker The Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tyler Adams showed he might be able to help when the rebuilding U.S. soccer team resumes competitive matches next June. So did Antonee Robinson and goalkeeper Zack Steffen. Adams scored his first international goal, four minutes after Angel Zaldivar was ejected for a studs-up tackle, and the United States rebounded from a poor first half for a 1-0 victory over Mexico on Tuesday night and their first win over El Tri in three years. "We wanted to show our character and pride for the country, and we went out there and battled at times," Adams said. "Maybe at the

are averaging four to five pounds each. The stripers are showing in similar numbers on both the Sacramento River in the Sherman Island, West Bank and Collinsville areas and on the lower San Joaquin from Eddos Harbor to the Antioch Bridge. “We are catching our fish while trolling with deepdiving Yo-Zuri lures in both shallow and deep water,” Hammond said. Hammond will begin sturgeon fishing in October. “I see sturgeon jumping down near Collinsville when I’m striper fishing,” he added. “I think

beginning the soccer wasn't there completely, it got a little chippy at times, but we handled ourselves well. " A 19-year-old who made his national team debut last November, Adams scored after Kellyn Acosta passed to a sprinting Antonee Robinson on the left flank. Robinson crossed for Adams, who onetimed the ball from the penalty spot past debuting goalkeeper Hugo Gonzalez. Adams has started for three seasons with Major League Soccer's New York Red Bulls and may transfer in January to the Bundesliga's RB Leipzig, owned by the same parent company. "He's a winner this kid, and I think I've been really pleased in terms of his growth with the sturgeon action will be excellent just like everything else has been this season.” Information: (916) 479-3492. New Melones rainbows: The large New Melones rainbow trout that anglers have been seeing for the last 18 months are beginning to appear after a lull of a couple months. “The trout bite is not off the charts, but when you can land a 7-pound, 5-ounce rainbow, as Ron Chaney did on a recent trolling trip, you have something to brag about,” Gene Hildebrand of Glory Hole Sports in Angels Camp said. Marvin Wells of Sonora also successfully battled a chunky 7-pound, 14-ounce rainbow while trolling with a firetiger Needlefish at 42 ft. depth up the Stanislaus River arm of the lake. Information: (209) 736-4333.

the ball in tight spots," U.S. interim coach Dave Sarachan said. "We know that he can run and cover ground and win tackles and compete. But at the next level now can you do the next part? And that's have a presence with the ball and picking your spots so it just keeps getting better." The left-footed Robinson, burned by Diego Costa with a cross that led to Brazil's opening goal in a 2-0 loss Friday, had replaced right-footed Eric Lichaj at left back in the 56th minute. "I just saw the defenders dropping really deep toward the goal so I cut it back across so hopefully someone could get on the end of it, and thankfully Tyler did," Robinson said. "And it was a really great finish."

NOTICE OF PREPARATION OF AN ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT AND COMMUNITY AND CEQA SCOPING MEETING FOR THE CITY OF STOCKTON REGIONAL WASTEWATER CONTROL FACILITY MODIFICATIONS PROJECT STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA COMMENT PERIOD: September 7, 2018 to October 8, 2018 Community and CEQA Scoping Meeting: Monday, September 24, 2018, 4:00 to 6:00 PM at the Stockton Memorial Civic Auditorium, North Hall, 525 N. Center St., Stockton, CA 95202. The City of Stockton (City) is the lead agency responsible for preparation of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for Regional Wastewater Control Facility (RWCF) Modifications Project, located at 2500 Navy Drive, Stockton, California. Modifications to the RWCF are required to maintain compliance with the RWCF National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit, extend the useful life of existing facilities, improve working conditions for facility staff, and to implement components of the City’s Capital Improvement and Energy Management Plan (CIEMP). The proposed RWCF modifications consist of demolition of certain treatment process components and buildings, rehabilitation and repurposing of some existing components and buildings, and construction of new treatment process components and buildings. Existing RWCF facilities would remain in operation during construction of new and rehabilitated facilities to ensure continual wastewater treatment services. The proposed improvements would not provide additional wastewater treatment capacity at the RWCF beyond the existing permitted discharge capacity (55 million gallons per day, average dry weather flow). The Notice of Preparation is being circulated for a 30-day public review and comment, beginning September 7, 2018. A community and CEQA scoping meeting to seek input on the scope of the EIR analysis will be held from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM on September 24, 2018, at the Stockton Memorial Civic Auditorium, North Hall, 525 N. Center St., Stockton, CA 95202. Individuals may attend the meeting at any time to obtain information on the project, ask questions of project team members, and provide comments.

The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Trustee’s Sale is estimated to be $142,044.04 (Estimated). However, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary’s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property. Notice to Property Owner The sale date shown on this Notice of Sale may be postponed one or more times by the Mortgagee, Beneficiary, Trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.
