COMMUNITYPROFILES INA SINSHEIMER

Always the director Sinsheimer remains a vital part of the school she founded BY MELODY HANATANI Daily Press Staff Writer

OCEAN PARK Ina Sinsheimer placed her hands on the shoulder of a 2-year-old boy, a child in pain after taking a bad fall on the playground, what seemed like all the pebbles in the world stuck to his knee. She stared at the young boy straight in the eye, the sound of water rushing through the faucet playing in the background, picked him up and placed him in the bathtub.

“This is going to hurt,” Sinsheimer warned the boy. She cleaned off the pebbles and the boy looked straight at Sinsheimer, two unforgettable words coming out of his mouth. “Thank you,” he said. It was the first words from the Autistic child and two words that would go on to change Sinsheimer’s life, a defining moment that would launch a life-long career in early childhood education. Nearly 50 years later, Sinsheimer, now 79 years old, is just as active in the field as she was during the years she cared for the young Autistic child at the Santa Monica Co-Op where good friend Mary Burnett gave Sinsheimer her first job.

excellent way to help the environment and get cars off of congested city streets. For others, it’s all about cold hard cash. With gas prices soaring to unheard of levels, there’s been renewed interest in the oft maligned practice. Instead of driving solo, waves of commuters have migrated to carpools, bicycles and buses. And almost to a person, most have made the switch due to economic necessity. “The price of gas has gotten out of control,” said Santa Monica resident Dianne Juarez, who has been looking for somebody to carpool with for six to eight months. “I only go to work and the grocery store these days. I can’t afford to go anyplace else.” Juarez makes a daily commute to the Pico Union area of Los Angeles and spends anywhere from $30 to $40 a week on gas. She has considered taking the bus, but the route would take too long and would force her to leave the house hours before her scheduled shift. Years ago, she was a part of a carpool that left her with a positive feeling toward sharing a ride. “The experience was so good I had to give it another shot, but I haven’t had any luck as of yet,” she said. “I’ve been posting listings on the Internet, but haven’t gotten any response. All I can do is keep trying because the cost of driving is only going to go up.” Finding a match for carpooling is easier than it sounds. Making the job a bit easier, there are a number of popular Web sites that allow individuals to post classified listings seeking carpool partners. One site, erideshare.com, boasts 12,664 listings nationwide with at least one third of which coming from people in California. Steven Schoeffler, Web master and executive director, founded the site nine years ago and has helped tens of thousands of people find carpool partners. He said that the site receives up to SEE COMMUTING PAGE 10

Tunnel was seen as dangerous long before deadly crash BY MICHAEL R. BLOOD Associated Press Writer

SANTA CLARITA More than a decade before a fiery, 34-vehicle pileup last fall killed three people inside a curving, dimly lit tunnel, state police and a California transportation official warned that the stretch of freeway was perilous and that steps should be taken to improve safety, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. Highway officials did cut grooves into the pavement to improve traction, and it seemed to make a difference. But a state police request to routinely close the road in stormy weather was rejected. And later, the state raised the speed limit in the tunnel from 45 mph to 55 mph. Now California officials are facing accusations they contributed to the tragedy by turning a blind eye to the dangers. The tunnel was “a recipe for disaster — always was,” said Marvin Louis Wolf, a lawyer who has filed a claim against the state on behalf of a trucking company involved in the crash. “It was outdated the minute it was completed.” Thirty-three trucks and a car crashed during a rainstorm in the Oct. 12 wreck, which happened on Interstate 5 at a mountain pass north of Los Angeles. The inferno closed the major West Coast route between Mexico and Canada for two days, and the cleanup and repairs totaled $17 million. In the aftermath, state highway officials assured the public the road was safe. “I’m aware of no safety concerns,” Douglas Failing, a regional director for the California Department of Transportation, said at the time. But victims’ lawyers and freight companies are challenging that assessment, which conflicts with the road’s notorious reputation among truckers and locals alike. Claims filed with the state since the accident depict the tunnel as dangerously dark and poorly designed, with too few warning signs and a speed limit that invited catastrophe. Trucker Jose Medina, who escaped after his rig was rear-ended in the pileup, said its abrupt curve made it impossible for oncoming truckers to see the danger after the first rig crashed near the exit of the tunnel. “You’re coming down a hill, there is a tunnel, a big curve,” said Medina, who gave up trucking after the crash and now works as a bartender in Puerto Rico. “It was like SEE TUNNEL PAGE 11

Wildfire forces more evacuations By the Associated Press

SIERRA MADRE A wildfire that broke out in a popular hiking area blackened the steep slopes of the foothills near Pasadena and forced mandatory evacuations for 300 homes, authorities said Sunday. Two hundred homes around Sierra Madre were evacuated Saturday night and residents from 100 other properties were told to leave Sunday, Elisa Weaver of the Arcadia Fire Department said, as the wildfire continued to burn its way through dense brush. Sierra Madre is about 15 miles northeast of Los Angeles and just east of Pasadena. No homes were damaged, though a small outbuilding used for storing firefighting equipment was destroyed, Weaver said.

“A great neighborhood place to walk to!”

Weaver said more than 400 firefighters were attacking the 350-acre fire, aided by two helicopters with two water-dropping air tankers on the way. The fire was 5 percent contained and was expected to burn for another two or three days. “This is pretty serious,” Weaver said. “Some of these areas have not burned in over 40 years.” The cause of the blaze remained under investigation. The fire was first reported Saturday afternoon in a wooded area a few miles northeast of Pasadena. It was windy at the time and unseasonably hot, with temperatures approaching 100 degrees. The flames also brought the evacuation of a Boy Scout camp Saturday and left about 100

hikers stranded in a parking lot near Chantry Flats. Most of the Scouts had already left the camp by the time the evacuation was ordered, Weaver said, and no injuries were reported. Firefighters originally had hoped to have the blaze contained Sunday, but gusting winds late Saturday night kept the fire burning out of control and creeping toward nearby homes. The mandatory home evacuations came shortly before 11 p.m. Weaver said winds were calm early Sunday, boosting firefighter efforts. Two shelters have been set up in the area for evacuees. Flames outlined steep ridges about a mile above Sierra Madre, a San Gabriel Mountains foothill community of about 11,000 popular with artists.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

My Write

Send comments to editor@smdp.com

Bill Bauer

Here’s one you’ll never see Editor:

“Neighbors welcome change.” Two items in the April 25 edition demonstrate why the Santa Monica Daily Press may never have a chance to run this headline. One item is a story describing a planned mixeduse development along the 2900 block of Wilshire Boulevard (”Development draws criticism,” page 3). The neighborhood opposition both to this project and the possible redevelopment of the Albertson’s grocery store a couple of blocks to the east is as perplexing as it is predictable. Opponents are fighting to preserve two large parking lots, a liquor store, a pet store and a market housed in a building that might easily be mistaken for a fortress. Those portions of Wilshire Boulevard are tired and unsightly, and the neighbors ought to welcome well-planned change. The second item was a letter opposing the Santa Monica urban forester’s recommendation that 300 diseased carob trees be removed from a number of North of Montana residential streets. Assuming the correctness of the tree expert’s diagnosis, the city has an obligation to prevent the harms that can occur when large trees fall down. The letter writer not only unreasonably minimizes the city’s potential liability, but also may not realize that people have been killed by falling street trees. Public input into the planning process is good and necessary. But if we all remember that while change is not always better, neither is the status quo, someday we may see that headline in the SMDP.

It’s still about race Editor:

For those living in denial and who don't see the whole picture of why Hillary Clinton triumphed over Barack Obama in the Democratic primary in Pennsylvania all you have to do is check voter demographics in most counties and listen to what some of the more honest residents are saying; "yes, my vote had something to do with race." It's still about race in America even when it comes to a top notch presidential candidate. On the brighter side of things for the Democrats, Hillary and Barack are taking all the spotlight from John McCain who has been shuttled off to the back pages. You can read between the lines the angst and worry the extended Democratic primary is causing many conservative and Republican pundits.

ODDS OF A CHILD BECOMING A ODDS OF A CHILD PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE: BEING DIAGNOSED 1 in 16,000 WITH AUTISM: 1 in 166

PUBLISHER Ross Furukawa Send comments to editor@smdp.com

Is school staff running amuck? SPECIAL EDUCATION CAME UP AGAIN AT

City Council last Tuesday. It was an evening of stunning revelations proving the horror show continues. At issue is whether the Santa MonicaMalibu Unified School District has met the requirement for review of policy regarding confidentiality clauses in employee contracts and special education settlement agreements as set forth by the council months earlier. At stake: $529,779 in city funds for the district. The agreements are used to resolve disputes between special education parents and the district over their children’s educational plan. District superintendent, Diane Talarico told council since June, 2007, all parents involved in dispute resolution with staff were advised of the moratorium. She said that out of 37 agreements, 28 included confidentiality clauses and another nine were removed from agreements when parents "didn’t feel comfortable” signing them. Talarico said she was informed by her staff that "parents had been told a moratorium had been put on confidentiality clauses in settlement agreements — unless parents requested them” and “none had been coerced." However, she had heard, “According to the rumor mill, some (of the 28 families) felt they were coerced into signing agreements with confidentiality clauses." Councilman Bobby Shriver responded that he’d received e-mails from parents saying they were coerced into signing. Shriver suggested Talarico’s staff may have misinformed her. He pointedly asked Talarico, “What would happen if staff had misled the superintendent?” She replied there was “a progressive discipline procedure” and “if staff members were telling me untruths, there would be consequences," adding she hadn’t received the e-mails forwarded from the city and no parent complained to her even though she is “approachable and accessible." Talarico, who initially said she “could only stay for a little while because I have oodles of work to do,” heard a parade of parents and knowledgeable citizens tell council about “secret deals to control parents and erode the legal process” and confirm repeatedly that “the moratorium was not respected.” One parent revealed that four school board members were advised of the situation and only one unnamed board member investigated and was informed that “gag” clauses were used during the moratorium only in existing cases and agreements initiated after the moratorium didn’t contain them. When Ken Haker, chair of the Special Education District Advisory Committee said he was aware that “staff blatantly violated the terms of the agreement between the district and the city in regard to settlement agreements” and disclosed “abuses so sys-

tematic that truth was hidden by secrecy and fear,” eyes must have rolled. Two years ago, within weeks of replacing former superintendent, John Deasy (who instituted the settlement agreements and their gag clauses), Talarico signed a staterequired document stating the SMMUSD had the financial resources to cover a teacher pay raise even though district chief business officer, Winston Braham refused to certify the document and “resigned.” Outside auditors confirmed shaky fiscal procedures and noted that changes would be necessary if the district were to meet its fiscal obligations, thus vindicating Braham. Meanwhile, the continuing agony over special education was ignored by just about everybody in charge until last year when City Council withheld the Master Facility Use funding increase pending independent review and policy changes. The deceit, cover-ups, ignorance and screw-ups speak volumes about serious problems in administrative ranks. The combination of e-mails to council persons outlining ongoing abuse and the apparent awareness of some school board members about ignored policies and a renegade staff running amuck is indicative of a dysfunctional school district. Unbelievably, misguided school supporters still informed Shriver that special education parents were “excitable women” and council’s intervention was "anti-educational," suggesting that the city stop playing cop and just hand over the money. Hmmmm. What will they say when these “management” problems metastasize and infect the quality of education of their students — not just the special needs students who are now so marginalized? Add a school board incapable of proper oversight and school cheerleaders and stooges who soft-pedaled the festering situation (probably for fear it would negatively affect voting for parcel tax and school bond measures) and it’s easy to see why this hideous situation has flourished. Mayor Herb Katz told Talarico, “One of the largest problems you have, is they (parents) don’t trust you, and they don’t trust your staff ... these people are still scared.” In a vote of “no confidence,” Katz said he “was not convinced our superintendent is going to do much within the next 30 days" and wisely called for strong and immediate action noting that “those involved in this should be taken away from their positions.” Amen. At Talarico’s and many other’s request, council delayed releasing monies pending the submission and approval of a firm action plan by the district — as if they will give up a nickel until this debacle is settled.

Bush and habeas corpus: Gutting the Constitution INCREDIBLY, PRESIDENT BUSH WOULD

have us believe that the rights of citizenship are only as good as the ground a citizen literally stands on. In recent oral arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case involving Mohammad Munaf and Shawqi Omar, a Bush Administration lawyer argued that “American citizens, when they go abroad, they have to take what they get.” Munaf and Omar, both American citizens, were arrested in Iraq by American military personnel and have been in the custody of U.S. authorities operating as part of Multi-National Force Iraq. Both of these Americans are challenging attempts by the Bush Administration to deny them access to U.S. courts and transfer them into Iraqi custody, where they could very well be subjected to torture and given the death penalty. The Bush Administration insists that even though the men are being held at a U.S. Army-run detention center near the Baghdad airport, the U.S. has no control over what happens to them. Yet as Supreme Court Justice Breyer noted during the oral argument, “this multinational force operates subject to a unified American command, and the chain of command ultimately runs to the President. So as a practical matter it’s the President and the Pentagon, the Secretary of Defense, and the American commanders that control what our American soldiers do.” Thus, regardless of whether the U.S. military holds prisoners within U.S. borders or on foreign shores, as long as they are in U.S. custody, they have a right to a hearing by way of the writ of habeas corpus. No matter what President Bush insists to the contrary, government officials cannot pick and choose when or to whom the Constitution’s protections should be applied. America’s founders believed that the right of habeas corpus was essential if American freedom and democracy were to be maintained. They fought the War of Independence in part so that the lawless capture and detention of prisoners would never occur again. The right of habeas corpus is the foundation stone of American liberty. Alexander Hamilton, perhaps the most conservative of America’s founding fathers, once said that the writ of habeas corpus was perhaps more important to freedom and liberty than any other right found in the Constitution. Believing that such arbitrary imprisonment is “in all ages, the favorite and most formida-

ble instrument of tyranny,” the founders were all the more determined to protect Americans from such government abuses. Indeed, the founding fathers thought this right was so important that it was enshrined within the body of the U.S. Constitution, rather than as an amendment. Latin for “bring forth the body,” the Great Writ of Habeas Corpus ensures that if you’re being held in a jail or prison and haven’t been charged with a crime, you have the right to go before an impartial judge and ask, “Why am I being held? What is the evidence against me?” I am not saying that Munaf and Omar should be set free. Imprisonment would certainly be appropriate and necessary if the two men are guilty of what they were accused of. However, imprisoning American citizens without providing them access to the courts in order to challenge their detention represents a grave departure from the ideals of those who drafted the Constitution. This case will no doubt have far-reaching implications for all Americans, including journalists who cover the war. U.S. troops have occasionally mistaken reporters for insurgents and have detained over a dozen journalists for months at a time without charge. One photographer, Bilal Hussein, was held for almost two years after being mistaken for a terrorist in 2006. If the government prevails in this case, many such innocent American bystanders will find themselves in a legal limbo, unable to petition American courts for their release. Every prisoner’s darkest moment is when he realizes that the outside world doesn’t seem to care what happens to him. As Joseph Margulies, one of the attorneys for Omar and Munaf, wrote: “When I was in Iraq, I sat in cramped and bare concrete rooms with Shawqi Omar and Mohammad Munaf. After the nervous initial chatter about food and the weather, after the earnest discussion of legal cases and habeas corpus, after the long pause when conversations either come to an end or reach a more vital center, they began to speak of their fears, the greatest of which was that they had been, or soon would be, forgotten.” Constitutional attorney and author JOHN W. WHITEHEAD is founder and president of The Rutherford Institute. He can be contacted at johnw@rutherford.org. Information about The Rutherford Institute is available at www.rutherford.org.

Possible actors strike drives movie filming BY LYNN ELBER Associated Press Writer

LOS ANGELES Feature film production in the Los Angeles area jumped 11 percent in the first three months of the year as studios moved to get ahead of a possible actors strike. FilmL.A. Inc., an agency that tracks onlocation filming, said the increase came in comparison to the first quarter of 2007. “The studios are trying to get production wrapped before June 30,” the expiration date for the current Screen Actors Guild contract, Jack Kyser, chief economist for the Los Angeles Economic Development Corp., said Friday. A film shoot interrupted by a strike would a “very expensive proposition,” he said. SAG and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers held their 10th day of negotiations on Friday as another actors union, the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, waited in the wings for its contract talks to begin on May 5. AFTRA delayed the start of its talks for a week to give SAG a better chance to complete a three-year deal covering movies and prime-time television. Kyser said the reprieve for SAG gave many workers in Hollywood hope that there won’t be a repeat of the 100-day strike by writers that brought the entertainment industry to a standstill. FilmL.A. said TV production was making a slow recovery from the strike. TV location filming was down 45 percent in the first quarter of 2008. compared to last year, the agency said.

San Joaquin bishop sued Diocese leaders say Schofield breached his duties to the church BY AMANDA FEHD Associated Press Writer

SAN FRANCISCO The Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin is suing a deposed bishop who led a secession last year prompted by the church’s ordination of women and gays. The diocese said in its lawsuit, filed Thursday in Fresno County Superior Court, that John-David Schofield breached his duties to the church and demanded he vacate his offices and turn over diocesan property and financial accounts. National church leaders removed Schofield as the head of the Fresno-based diocese after he led parishioners to align themselves with the conservative Province of the Southern Cone, an Argentina-based member of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Last month, Jerry Lamb, a bishop loyal to the U.S. church, was elected to head the San Joaquin diocese. Schofield, however, maintains he is an Anglican bishop of the Diocese of San Joaquin under the worldwide church. The U.S. Episcopal Church is also part of the 77 million-member Anglican Communion, a global fellowship of churches that trace their roots to the Church of England, but the national denomination has faced increasing scrutiny for its liberal-leaning stance. Most Anglicans are traditionalists who believe Scripture bars gay relationships. Lamb said in a statement Friday that there was no other viable way to recover church property but to seek court intervention.

COUNTRYENGLISHredefined.com

“Regardless of the necessity of proceeding with the litigation, the diocesan leadership and I remain committed to reconciliation with clergy and parishes that are still trying to understand their relationship with the Episcopal Church,” Lamb said in the statement. The Rev. Van McCalister, a spokesman for the secessionist diocese Schofield leads, said Friday that the deposed bishop’s parishioners are the rightful owners of the proper-

course we are going to defend them.” McCalister said he assumed the lawsuit applies to the 40 parish churches and missions within the diocese, as well as other assets. He said an eviction order had not been served on the Fresno offices Schofield continues to occupy as head of the Anglican diocese. The complaint demands that Schofield leave those offices, return control of a church investment trust and foundation and return bank and brokerage accounts, money, and

THE PEOPLE OF THE DIOCESE, THEIR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES, VOTED TO MOVE FROM THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH TO THE ANGLICAN PROVINCE. IT WASN’T A UNILATERAL DECISION BY THE BISHOP. Rev. Van McCalister, Spokesman for the secessionist diocese Schofield leads

ties Bishop Lamb is seeking. As such, there is no reason for him to comply with Lamb’s demands, according to McCalister. “The people of the diocese, their elected representatives, voted to move from the Episcopal Church to the Anglican Province. It wasn’t a unilateral decision by the bishop,” he said. “They are the ones who paid for the properties, through their forebears, so of

financial, historical and property records. “Defendant Schofield’s attempt to divert the Diocese of San Joaquin itself and its property for the use and benefit of another church in violation of the Episcopal Church’s Constitution and Canons breached his fiduciary duties as the Bishop and ecclesiastical authority of the Diocese of San Joaquin,” the complaint said.

This week Sinsheimer will experience another defining moment in her career as the First Step Preschool, which she founded and still serves as director, will celebrate its 30th anniversary on Wednesday at The Victorian. “I’ve always loved children,” Sinsheimer said during an interview last week. “My house was the house where all the kids in the neighborhood came to play.” The preschool has changed minimally in the past 30 years, still located in the same bungalow in Ocean Park and still acting on the same philosophy of allowing the child to flourish creatively in a time when they are establishing the framework for the rest of their lives. “I believe that [Albert] Einstein had it right when he said the imagination is more important than knowledge,” Sinsheimer said. Following a stint at the Santa Monica CoOp, Sinsheimer set her career sights on the Backyard Group, a Westside preschool where her three sons attended. Once her children were off to elementary school, Sinsheimer went straight to Henrietta Endore, the preschool’s founder and guru of early childhood education. “I want to work for you, Henrietta,” Sinsheimer recalls saying. Sinsheimer went on to serve as both an instructor at the preschool and a pupil to Endore, who mentored her during the formative years in her education career. Concurrent to her time at the Backyard Group, Sinsheimer began working toward her master’s degree in human development. In the mid 1970s, Sinsheimer felt she was finally ready to branch off on her own. With a handful of teachers and about four students, Sinsheimer started the First Step Preschool. The following year, the school reached capacity. “Henrietta allowed for children to be themselves, to truly be themselves and she was really the first school that I know of who didn’t reject children because they marched to a different drummer,” Sinsheimer said. Within the aging school house is the chorus of children’s laughter, sung as they run through the corridors after one another,

sung as they finger paint enthusiastically out in the courtyard. For Sinsheimer, the bungalow is not just a preschool but also a living memory book. One of her fondest memories came just a few years after the preschool opened its doors. When a student with leukemia was recovering at home after undergoing chemotherapy, Sinsheimer rounded up a group of kids in a wagon and took them up to see him. The boy, who lived just two blocks away, survived the cancer and is doing well, Sinsheimer said. About 1,000 students have gone through the doors at First Step and the staff has remained roughly the same over the past three decades. Among those teachers is Hillary Bedell, who has taught at First Step for 20 years. “I’m given the freedom to teach what I want to teach and Ina’s philosophy of allowing the children freedom to play and learn and imagine is my philosophy also,” Bedell said. “I’ve been in the field for 36 years and at other schools there are teachers coming and going but the teachers stay here because Ina is a good person to work for.” Perhaps nothing has stayed more constant at the preschool than its philosophy. Sinsheimer recently opened her old master’s thesis, written back in 1981. She was shocked to see that in 27 years, very little has changed in her educational goals and beliefs as outlined in the thesis. “I can’t believe we’re doing the same thing,” she said. “I can’t believe I’m sitting here saying the same thing all these years later.” melodyh@smdp.com

Ride sharing getting popular FROM COMMUTING PAGE 1 20,000 visitors a month and is completely free to use. “I saw the opportunity for this kind of site and jumped on it,” Schoeffler said. “I’m not a car-pooler myself, but I can see where something like this can be a God send for some people. Traffic and gas prices are bad no matter where you live. That’s part of the reason I used to walk to work. I’m lucky now and I work from home, which is the ultimate way to stay off the roads.” Some municipalities have decided that the private sector could use a nudge in the right direction when it comes to ride sharing. Santa Monica, a city known for being on the cutting edge of environmental concerns, created an ordinance 17 years ago that requires any business operating in the city to inform its employees of various ride sharing opportunities. The city provides Big Blue Bus schedules and marketing materials to businesses in the hope that some of their employees abandon their individual cars in favor of ride sharing. To give the ordinance some teeth, the city charges employers an impact fee ranging from $9.14 to $11.72 per employee, per year. To offset that cost, businesses are required to pay workers $1 for each day they take an alternative form of transit to work. For every dollar paid to employees, that amount can be subtracted from the yearly impact fee. “All businesses operate the same plan, but they can come up with different ways to entice employees to participate in the program,” said Luis Antonio Morris, transportation management specialist for the city. “It’s a good way to promote ride sharing.” If businesses fail to comply with the ordinance, there’s a steep penalty to pay. A business in violation would be required to pay $5 per person, per day the violation occurs. Violators also risk losing their business licenses, but Morris can’t recall that happening in the time he’s worked with the city. The city itself is one of the most successful enterprises in the city when it comes to ride sharing. Jerri Wingo, who works in the transportation office, is in charge of the city’s efforts to help its employees find alternative modes of transportation to work. She said that 800 of 2,100 city employees ride share in one for or another. “I’m always asking people if there are interested in participat-

ing,” Wingo said.“Lately,most people say the price of gasoline is the main reason they want to get involved. Many people that work for the city don’t live here. Some drive from as far as Riverside and San Diego. I’m always matching them up with people in their area.” The distance one has to commute often forces some people to take drastic measures. Allen Yang used to live in Santa Monica but was forced to move closer to his job due to the soaring cost of commuting.

He tried Internet message boards with no success and grew so frustrated he moved to keep his costs down. “There was a lot of publicity for ride sharing back in the ‘70s and ‘80s,” Yang said. “There used to be billboards touting ride sharing, but there doesn’ seem to be enough publicity any more.” daniela@smdp.com

State knew tunnel was dangerous FROM TUNNEL PAGE 3 dominoes. You don’t have any chance.” The tunnel was repaired and reopened a month after the disaster, and now bears little resemblance to its 1970s-era predecessor. White concrete was used to increase illumination, 500 computerized lights can create a noontime-like brilliance inside, and flashing signs mark the entrance. The tunnel speed has been lowered back to 45 mph. A second tunnel, farther downhill, was not damaged and has not been redesigned. Drivers descending the mountain pass toward Los Angeles go through the two tunnels while passing through a 2.4-mile network of curving bypass roads designed to allow trucks to come down along a gentler grade. Cars are also allowed in those lanes. Driving those lanes can be tricky and can include frequent stops and starts, with curves, merges and slow-moving trucks that can obscure what’s ahead. Records show the 550-foot tunnel where the crash happened has been nearly accident-free in recent years. However, between 2002 and 2006, there was an average of nearly one collision a week on the network of bypass roads going both directions. In 1996, the California Highway Patrol was so distressed it recommended shutting the truck lanes and the tunnel in stormy weather — an idea state officials deemed unacceptable because they did not have the manpower to pull that off, according to internal documents obtained by the AP. That same year, state maintenance supervisor Charles Payne, alarmed by numerous crashes in stormy weather, wrote a letter urging engineers to review speeds and road conditions. “It is my concern that if these issues are not addressed immediately, that a major incident will happen with possible loss of life,” he wrote. The state spent $250,000 in 1998 to grind and groove the pavement to improve traction. Accidents on the cluster of roads in both directions dropped from 1999 through 2001, government records show, but then began to climb. There were 32 accidents in 1999 and 55 by 2003, the year after the speed limit was raised to 55 mph. Traffic in both directions on the busy stretch of highway increased 32 percent from 1996 to 2006, to an average of 281,000 vehi-

cles a week. In an interview, Failing said that the overall crash rate is slightly above the norm, but that serious collisions — those involving deaths or injuries — are slightly below average. “The statistics, the accident records, everything showed that this roadway was safe, especially when driven with due care,” Failing said. “If there was any doubt in our minds, we would have been out making changes.” The California Highway Patrol is still investigating the cause and declined to comment on safety questions about the tunnel. The official cause is certain to have a powerful effect on the legal claims, which could expose the state to millions of dollars in damages. John Woodrooffe, who heads the safety analysis division at the University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute, said the increase in accidents in 2002 and 2003, after several years of relatively stable numbers, could be explained by increased traffic, weather or the economy. But one trend was clear: wet-weather crashes dropped, suggesting the 1998 road work helped reduce accidents. The deadly crash took place after the first significant rain in months made the road slick. The pileup is believed to have started with a tractor-trailer that went out of control and crashed as it was leaving the tunnel. The pileup spread wreckage over a halfmile and sent motorists running for their lives from the 1,400-degree fire. Among the three victims was a 6-year-old boy, Isaiah Matthew Rodriguez, who was riding in his father’s truck. The boy’s mother has charged in state documents that officials were aware of a “significant number” of accidents in and around the tunnel but looked the other way. Water pooled inside, light fixtures weren’t working and it was improperly banked and graded, the mother said. “This tunnel should have had a lower speed limit, a highway patrol car parked three miles from the entrance as a reminder to slow down. There should have been warning signs to the entrance of the tunnel that there is something going on inside the tunnel,” said Wolf, who represents Western Regional Delivery Service. “They’ve done it after people died.”

Earth Talk By the editors of E Magazine

Send comments to editor@smdp.com

Flying the green-friendly skies Dear EarthTalk: Are there any efforts underway to green the air travel industry? It seems to me that it must be one dirty business from a pollution standpoint.

Elias Corey Seattle, WA

ENVIRONMENTAL BATTLES OVER THE

siting and expansion of airports are as old as the air travel industry itself, but only in recent years have the airlines themselves been under pressure to go green. And there’s no time like the present for the industry to take some action: Air pollution from commercial jets is a growing concern among scientists, as is air travel’s role in climate change because of the more acute warming effect of emissions when they are disbursed so much closer to the upper atmosphere. According to the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution, an independent group of scientists that advises the British government, emissions from aircraft will likely be one of the major contributors to global warming by the year 2050. According to USA Today, on a flight from New York to Denver, a commercial jet generates between “840 to 1,660 pounds of carbon dioxide per passenger. That’s about what an SUV generates in a month.” Despite still gloomy times for the industry post-9/11, a few are actually responding to the call. Virgin is blazing new trails as part

of a $3 billion investment in energy efficiency. The company is experimenting with biodiesel and ethanol — fuels derived from crops — and has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in ethanol-related businesses. But don’t expect to ride on a biofuelpowered jet anytime soon. Airplane makers are getting in on the act, too. Boeing successfully flew the world’s first hydrogen-powered, fuel cell airplane in April 2008. A company spokesperson called the plane — a small one-seater — “full of promises for a greener future.” Boeing is working to develop a commercial version, but uncertainties about hydrogen production and distribution put this advancement well into the future, too. So what can consumers do to fly greener today? Sharon Beaulaurier of GreenLight magazine suggests choosing airlines with newer, more fuel-efficient fleets such as JetBlue, Singapore Airlines or Virgin. She adds that direct flights are better than those with stopovers, as frequent take-offs and landings use more fuel than when the planes are cruising. She also recommends avoiding airlines and airports with bad track records for delays, which leave planes idling and spewing greenhouse gases for hours unnecessarily. The National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA) runs AvoidDelays.com, which helps fliers choose airlines and airports based on on-time departures. Airlines with poor records include American, Atlantic Southeast,

HEAVY FOOTPRINT: On a flight from New York to Denver a commercial jet generates between 840 to 1,660 pounds of carbon dioxide per passenger, or about what an SUV generates in a month.

ExpressJet, Mesa and United, according to NATCA, which also calls Chicago’s O’Hare, New York’s LaGuardia, Newark, Philadelphia and San Francisco the worst airports for catching on-time flights. Meanwhile, the European Union wants to require airlines touching down in Europe to participate in continent-wide carbon reduction programs already in place. Backers hope it will cut Europe’s exponential growth in airline emissions in

half by 2020. Some carriers oppose the plan and are fighting it in court. Want to get down to earth? Submit questions to earthtalk@emagazine.com.

Green funerals make for eco-friendly exits BY REGAN MCTARSNEY Associated Press Writer

LONDON It’s no longer enough to live a greener life — now people are being encouraged to be environmentally friendly when they leave the Earth too. Cardboard coffins, clothes sewn from natural fibers, a burial plot in a natural setting. Green funerals attempt to be ecofriendly at every stage. “People are trying to think about what’s the best way to live and with that, what’s the best way to die,” said Roslyn Cassidy, a funeral director for Green Endings, which provides eco-friendly funerals. Britain has been a world leader in ecofriendly funerals for years and a source of green burial products and ideas for countries like the United States, where the trend is just starting to catch on. Over the weekend in London, those in the business showcased their products and services at the Natural Death Center’s Green Funeral Exhibition. Some may expect green funerals to be as cheap as a do-it-yourself project, while others might brace for price hikes similar to those fair trade food. But, funeral directors say green funerals — like any — run the gamut. “It’s about choice, not price,” said Fran Hall, marketing director for Epping Forest Burial Park. For a concept aimed at saving the Earth by going back to basics, an eco-funeral can be more complicated than it sounds. The Natural Death Center provides a handbook that suggests environmental targets for cemeteries.

“You can take any funeral and make it greener,” said Michael Jarvis, the center’s director. In a green funeral, bodies are not embalmed and are dressed in pure fiber clothes. Green campaigners say refrigeration or dry ice is a good alternative to formaldehyde, which can seep into the water system. Biodegradable coffins also differ from the traditional mahogany. Coffins on display included one made from wicker and decorated with flowers. One visitor, Linda McDowall, admired another coffin bundled in a beige, leaf-adorned felt shroud, saying it looked comfortable. “Cozy and warm are not words you associate with death,” said McDowall, a 48-yearold German and French translator. Cardboard coffins — which are as thick as their wooden counterparts — can be decorated by family and biodegrade within three months. “The trouble is, they are a bit ungainly to use,” said Oakfield Wood burial ground director Oliver Peacock. “They’re not terribly easy to handle and if it’s wet, they don’t look their best either.” Particular care is taken in how coffins are buried at eco-friendly graveyards like Oakfield Wood, Peacock said. The cemetery was a pasture when it opened in 1995. It is now speckled with more than 1,600 trees that mark plots along with a wooden plaque. Marble tombstones are frowned upon. Jeremy Smite, a funeral director at Green Endings, notes that shipping and mining produce carbon and that marble is not a renewable resource.

“PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO THINK ABOUT WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO LIVE AND WITH THAT, WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO DIE.” Roslyn Cassidy, Funeral director for Green Endings

For cremations — which account for 70 percent of British funerals — a person’s ashes and the remains of the eco-friendly coffin are placed in bamboo, glass or ceramic urns.

New legislation in Britain requires reductions in the mercury content of plastics and treatments used in coffins starting in 2010. All biodegradable coffins meet the new standards.

NEW YORK After threatening Barry Sanders’ single-season rushing record in college, Kevin Smith now can concentrate — or at least dream about — Sanders’ marks with the Detroit Lions. The Central Florida running back and nation’s leading rusher in 2007 was chosen atop the third round of the NFL draft Sunday. The Lions even traded up two spots with Miami for the privilege of beginning the second day by grabbing Smith. Last season, Smith rushed for 2,567 yards and scored 29 touchdowns. Sanders’ set the single-season record with 2,628 in 1988, when he won the Heisman Trophy. He went on to a Hall of Fame career over the next decade with the Lions. Detroit will settle for a semblance of that from Smith, who left the Conference USA school as a junior after first saying he would return to college. “I never thought of myself as chasing Barry Sanders. He’s a legend,” Smith said. “My numbers might have been close, but I was just thrilled to be close to someone like that. Now I get to play in the same organization, which is a dream come true.” And enough to make a guy weep. “The coach told me that they were going to come up to get me, and he put me on the phone with all the coaches, and I just burst into tears,” Smith admitted. He was one of two All-Americans chosen in the third round. Penn State linebacker Dan Connor went to Carolina 10 spots later. Connor left Linebacker U as its career tackles leader with 419. In the last few years, the Panthers have lost some starters at the position, notably Will Witherspoon and Dan Morgan. They hit with Jon Beason, their first-rounder last year, at middle linebacker. “It’s going to be great to be able to learn under a bunch of great linebackers and guys that have experience,” Connor said. “I’m

more looking forward to that, taking it all in and learning from guys who have proven themselves every week on Sundays.” Other third-rounders looking to prove themselves in the NFL will be defensive back Chevis Jackson (Atlanta), running back Jacob Hester (San Diego) and receiver Early Doucet (Arizona), all from national champion LSU. Hester could fill the role of LaDainian Tomlinson’s stand-in previously held by Michael Turner, now with the Falcons, and the Cardinals need another wideout after losing Bryant Johnson to San Francisco. Texas running back Jamaal Charles was chosen by Kansas City and West Virginia RB Steve Slaton was taken by Houston. The Giants took Michigan’s big-play receiver, Mario Manningham, who could be groomed to eventually replace former Wolverine Amani Toomer. New England chose San Diego State quarterback Kevin O’Connell, causing one pundit to remark: “Is this the end of the Tom Brady era?” Uh, no. Another San Diego area QB went late in the fifth round when Josh Johnson of the University of San Diego Toreros was chosen by Tampa Bay, which has as many quarterbacks as some entire divisions. Southern California quarterback John David Booty was the second selection in the fifth round, by Minnesota after the Vikings made an in-division deal with Green Bay. The Packers already had their QB of the future: Brian Brohm, chosen in the second round on Saturday, yet chose Matt Flynn of LSU in the seventh. Tennessee passer Erik Ainge went to the Jets at No. 162 overall, six spots after Oregon’s Dennis Dixon was taken by Pittsburgh. The Steelers are hoping the fast, versatile Dixon can recover from a severe knee injury to make their team. Utah State guard Shawn Murphy, son of former baseball star Dale Murphy, went in the fourth round to Miami.

NCAA BASKETBALL

UCLA’s Shipp decides to enter NBA draft By the Associated Press

LOS ANGELES UCLA’s Josh Shipp will enter the NBA draft, but the junior won’t hire an agent, leaving him the option of returning to play for the Bruins. Shipp averaged 12.2 points and 3.2 rebounds during UCLA’s run to its third consecutive Final Four. The Bruins lost to Memphis in the national semifinals. “After speaking with my family and with coach (Ben) Howland, I think I should test the NBA waters to get some feedback,” Shipp said in a statement Sunday. “I feel like it really can’t hurt me at this time. I want to go through the process this year, which will serve as a positive experience for me in my

future development.” Shipp is the fourth UCLA starter to enter the June draft, along with freshman Kevin Love, sophomore Russell Westbrook and junior Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. On Saturday, point guard Darren Collison announced he will return for his senior season. Shipp started a school-record 39 games this season and led the Bruins in 3-point field goals. He announced his decision on the final day for underclassmen to declare for the draft. “It has been great being a part of so many winning teams,” he said. “But at the same time, I’m at the later stages of my college career and I think it would be an advantage for me to test this year."

Mind the details, Leo ARIES (March 21-April 19)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

★★★★★ You know what you want and are ready to do what is necessary to get there. If you feel it’s important, check out the idea one more time, but with someone you trust and whose judgment you respect. Tonight: Indulge and buy that new item.

★★★★ You might want to revise certain relationships. Sometimes you are all about work and don’t consider the viability of adding more lightness and joy in your life. Tonight: Let the fun begin.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ★★★★ Your inner voice might tell you something different from the obvious. Mobilize this sixth sense, if for no other reason than to test it out. Tonight: A must appearance. No rest for the weary!

★★★ Try to add that personal touch to your work and your relationships. If you do, expect the best end results. Others like it when you are more relaxed and easygoing. Express that quality. Communication could be overwhelming, but not bad. Tonight: Happy to be home.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

★★★★★ Reach out for others and expect new insight. If you need to find an expert, do just that. The more input you get, the tighter your idea is likely to be. Tonight: Forget the saying that curiosity killed the cat; explore all you want.

★★★★★ Speak up and don’t let others take your agreement for granted. If you don’t agree, the reason why might be very important. Your expenses could soar. Tonight: Hang out with a friend.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) CANCER (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ What friends suggest might not be in sync with a respected partner’s insight. What should you do? Tonight: An important talk.

★★★★ You might want to pull back and analyze expenditures and your budget. Knowing when you have spent enough could prevent indulgence from becoming a crisis. Tonight: Pay bills first.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★ Others certainly put in their two cents. Bosses have a strong sense of limitations too. Listen well, as someone comes up with an alternative. Tonight: Entertain different suggestions.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★★ Your smile, centering and insight draw many. That same mix points to success and a greater sense of satisfaction. Realize that you might not want to push so hard. Tonight: As you like it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★ All work and no play can make the Virgo feel dull. The interesting issue for you will be how to refresh and re-invigorate your life. Your creativity surges. Let your ideas bubble forth, and work with these new options. Tonight: Recognize if you are tired and call it a night.

Happy birthday

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★ Slow down and focus on what you must accomplish. Consider yourself on a factgathering mission. You don’t need to make decisions just yet. Tonight: Get some extra downtime.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: ★★★★★Dynamic ★★ So-So ★★★★ Positive ★ Difficult ★★★ Average

Opportunity strikes for those willing to step up to the plate. Accept what at first might seem like an unusual responsibility. Good communication helps you see far more than in the past. Discover the many routes to the same goal. Be open to changing your style. Sometimes you find yourself tense and feeling pressured. Learn ways to let off steam, for your well-being. If you are single, someone quite unique enters your life. You might frequently shake your head as you see life differently. If you are attached, do much more as a couple. Even more bonding will occur. AQUARIUS could seem bossy. A willingness to expand mentally earmarks your success this year. Many of your opinions will reverse themselves given time.

■ Two aggressive art pieces sexualizing Jesus' Last Supper were displayed earlier this year: Among the 74 plaster models shown in Gateshead, England, in January by British artist Terence Koh was one of Jesus and several disciples sporting generous erections. And in March, a retrospective of Austrian Alfred Hrdlicka went on display in the Cathedral Museum in Vienna, with the blessing of the archbishop of Vienna, even though it included a painting of the Last Supper as a "homosexual orgy," in Hrdlicka's description (because, he said, there were no women in the original Da Vinci painting that inspired it). (That piece was removed during the first week, after complaints.) ■ Last year, Montreal, Quebec, artist Michel de Broin created, as art, the hollowed-out shell of an old Buick powered only by a fourseater bicycle (with hand brakes, or, failing them, Fred Flintstonetype brakes). Nonetheless, when a group took the car out for a spin last October, an overzealous officer ticketed them for "driving" an unsafe "car," but in April, after a daylong court hearing, the charges were dropped. ■ No Man's Land: "The Bride of Palestine" (a 26-year-old drag queen) is the best-known of a group of sexually uncertain Israeli Arabs who gather in underground venues in Tel Aviv and "struggle to define themselves," according to a March dispatch from McClatchy Newspapers. Though they are proud Palestinians at odds with the "occupying" Jewish society, some feel even more rejection by their own conservative communities and seem grateful that the "oppressors" permit the spaces that one woman called her "only refuge."

TODAY IN HISTORY Gavrilo Princip, the 1918 assassin of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and the archduke’s wife, Sophie, died in prison of tuberculosis. War with Japan officially ended as a treaty signed in San Francisco the year before took effect. The United States conducted the first of 35 nuclear test explosions in the Pacific Proving Ground as part of Operation Hardtack I. Heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali refused to be inducted into the Army, the same day Gen. William C. Westmoreland told Congress the U.S. “would prevail in Vietnam.”

More legal wrangling ahead in shooting case BY DAVID B. CARUSO Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK The family of an unarmed man killed in a hail of police gunfire on his wedding day pledged Saturday to continue its fight to have someone held accountable for his death, a day after a judge acquitted three officers in the slaying. “I’m still praying for justice, because it’s not over. It’s far from over. It’s just starting,” Sean Bell’s fiancee, Nicole Paultre Bell, told supporters at a rally in Manhattan’s Harlem neighborhood. “Every protest, every march, every rally, I’m going to be right up front.” If history is a guide, the family may indeed still have a chance at extracting some measure of retribution, but it would very likely come at the expense of the city and not the officers who pulled the trigger. Bell, 23, was killed and two friends wounded in a 50-shot barrage outside a Queens strip club hours before his wedding. Legal experts said Bell’s family faces an uphill fight in their attempt to have the officers charged with federal civil rights violations and might have to settle for battling them in civil court, where the city, not the officers, would be responsible for paying off any multimillion-dollar verdict. Peter J. Neufeld, an attorney who represented police torture victim Abner Louima, said he believed the chances that the U.S. attorney’s office would bring federal charges in the case were “close to zero,” judging by Justice Department decisions in past police shootings. While federal prosecutors have been willing to prosecute police officers for civil rights violations before, most famously in the case of Los Angeles brutality victim Rodney King, they have hesitated to take on cases in which officers have had to make a quick decision whether to open fire on a person they perceived to be dangerous. No civil rights charges were brought in the 1999 case of Amadou Diallo, an unarmed African immigrant shot to death in the vestibule of a Bronx apartment building by officers who mistook his wallet for a gun. They also were not brought in the case of Eleanor Bumpurs, a mentally ill, 66year-old black woman who was killed by two shotgun blasts fired by a police officer evicting her from her apartment in the Bronx in 1984. “The split-second nature of the decision to shoot,” Neufeld said, makes it difficult for prosecutors to argue that the officers knowingly acted to deprive someone of a constitutional right. Bell’s family and the two survivors of the shooting may have better luck, though, with their lawsuit against the city. His companions that night were Joseph Guzman and Trent Benefield. New York has a long history of multimillion-dollar payouts as a result of lawsuits brought by the families of people slain or beaten by police, including many settlements in cases where the officers

Starting Over?

were acquitted of criminal responsibility. Even if the case goes to trial in civil court, Bell’s family is in a good position for a victory, said Bob Conason, an attorney who helped Diallo’s mother wrest a $3 million settlement from the city. “This certainly doesn’t kill the civil case,” Conason said of Friday’s acquittal. “Yes, they will have to try the case over again,” he said, but the standard for proving that the officers used excessive force is much lower in a civil court. “We had the exact same thing in Diallo, and we were not that concerned about winning the civil case,” even after the initial verdicts of not guilty, Conason said. An exoneration in a criminal investigation also wasn’t an obstacle for the families of Patrick Dorismond, an unarmed black security guard whose family won a $2.25 million settlement from the city after his shooting by a narcotics detective in 2000, or for relatives of Timothy Stansbury, who settled for $2 million after the 19-year-old was shot by a startled officer on a Brooklyn rooftop in 2004. Grand juries had declined to indict in either case. That doesn’t mean that the road to victory will be easy for the Bell family, even in civil court. The long trial of detectives Michael Oliver, Gescard Isnora and Marc Cooper produced some moments damaging to the family’s claim that the officers had no cause to fear for their safety. Judge Arthur Cooperman noted in his written decision on the case that some of the prosecution witnesses who had given the most damning account of the officers’ conduct had changed their stories regarding the circumstances of the shooting, which he said “had the effect of eviscerating” their credibility. While not mentioning him by name, the judge also appeared to refer to Guzman as he described a witness with a criminal history and a poor demeanor on the witness stand. Guzman had been combative as he was cross-examined about the shooting and has served jail time. The police detectives said they decided to confront Bell’s party as they left the strip club because they believed Guzman was going to his car to retrieve a gun after an earlier argument. Yet, even considering those factors, Conason said it might be in the city’s best interest to settle, rather than risk polarizing citizens by defending the detectives’ conduct in court. “I would hope they figure, ‘Enough of this. It’s not good for the city. It’s not good for the department,"’ Conason said. The Rev. Al Sharpton said he would meet with members of Congress in an attempt to elicit their help getting the Justice Department involved in the case. Regardless of what the city decides to do, Bell’s family and his friends say they aren’t going to give up. “We got a long fight. We still here. We still in it,” Guzman said.
