A cut above St. Joseph Center chef competes on ‘Chopped’

THE R.I.P. ISSUE

BY AMEERA BUTT Daily Press Staff Writer

HAMPTON DRIVE What can you make with barbecue sauce in a squirt bottle, pattypan squash, ground pork and a can of chicken noodle soup? That’s one of the answers television audiences will find out when they see St. Joseph Center’s Chef D. Brandon Walker appears on the popular show “Chopped” on the Food Network Tuesday night. The ingredients are all part of the appetizer portion of the competition where contestants have 20 minutes to whip up a dish. Four contestants compete in three rounds that consist of making an appetizer, entree and dessert with various “mystery” ingredients. Walker is in charge of the culinary training program at the center as well as chef of Bread and Roses Cafe, which provides meals to the less fortunate in a comfortable and clean setting. The Food Network got in touch with Walker a year after the executive director of the center recommended his name for something else on the channel. Walker will appear on a special episode called “Hero Chefs,” or chefs who have served their communities. The Santa Monican remained mum on how he did in the competition, but said the show, which was filmed in February, is “completely authentic.” “It’s an absolute surprise what’s in the mystery basket,” Walker said. “It’s a long, grueling day, 16 hours in the studio.” Walker said he was proud to represent the West Coast, and Santa Monica in particular, alongside chefs from New York and Philadelphia. Before he was on the show, he said his co-workers were providing him with suggestions on what to make. “I’ve taught over 500 students so it’s kind of an army of people who are watching me and rooting me on,” Walker said. With a background in fine dining and a culinary school education, Walker runs seven classes per year in the free program, which last for 10 weeks. There are an average of 105 students enrolled a year, he said. Katty Salinas, who runs Katty’s Pupusas at the YWCA on 14th Street twice a week, was one of Walker’s former

UCLA player Nick Pasquale hit by car, killed GREG BEACHAM AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES UCLA receiver Nick Pasquale was hit by a car and killed while walking in San Clemente early Sunday morning. He was 20. The Orange County Sheriff ’s Department said Pasquale was struck about 1:30 a.m. It wasn’t immediately clear whether Pasquale was trying to cross a street. Sheriff ’s Lt. Gary Strachan said the car’s driver stopped, called authorities and stayed with Pasquale until they arrived. The accident is under investigation. Strachan said no one was arrested. Pasquale, a redshirt freshman, walked on at UCLA last fall after playing at San Clemente High School, where he was a three-year starter. The 5-foot-7 receiver earned the nickname “Pacman” from his teammates while participating on the scout team in practices last season and again this summer. “This is a tragic loss,” UCLA coach Jim Mora said. “Nick was an outstanding young SEE UCLA PAGE 11

‘Riddick’ wins box office with $18.7M debut DERRIK J. LANG AP Entertainment Writer

LOS ANGELES “Riddick” is seeing light at the box office. The sci-fi thriller starring Vin Diesel as an intergalactic criminal with built-in night vision debuted in first place with $18.7 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. “Riddick” is the third installment in the series, following the $11.6 million debut of 2000’s “Pitch Black” and the $24.3 million launch of 2004’s “The Chronicles of Riddick.” “Riddick,” which finds the alien anti-hero stranded and pursued by bounty hunters on a hostile world, served as a passion project for Diesel and series writer-director David Twohy. After the studio originally passed on funding a third chapter, the pair acquired the rights to the character from Universal and independently secured their own film financing. “I don’t think there were any mistakes made here,” said Nikki Rocco, head of distribution for Universal, which returned to the fold to distribute “Riddick” in North America. “Vin wanted to do it. He had to do it on his time. He was very, very busy with ‘Fast & Furious,’ and I think everything came together as he wanted it to come together.” “Riddick” also fared well internationally, bringing in an additional $7.4 million in 22 markets such as the United Kingdom and Hong Kong. “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” fell to second place with $8.9 million in its fourth weekend at the box office, bringing its total domestic haul to $91.9 million. The Spanish-language comedy “Instructions Not Included” earned third place in its expanded second weekend with $8.1 million, giving it a total of $20.1 million in U.S. and Canadian theaters. “Typically, the weekend after Labor Day is one of the slowest weekends of the year,” said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com. “By Universal releasing a brand-new sci-fi movie with one of the biggest stars in the world, they took advantage of that and came out on top with the No. 1 movie. It gave the weekend a nice boost.” Dergarabedian said box office totals are up more than 26 percent this weekend over last year when “The Possession” scared up $9.3 million in the top spot in its fourth weekend. “Riddick” will face stiff competition next weekend when horror sequel “Insidious: Chapter 2” and “The Family” starring Robert De Niro and Tommy Lee Jones hit theaters.

Minimum wage, guns, fracking bills face lawmakers in California’s Legislature SACRAMENTO, Calif. State lawmakers head into the final week of this year’s Legislative session facing issues that could help shape California’s environment and business climate for years to come. They also plan to add new limits to what already are some of the nation’s strictest regulations for firearms, while trying to find a compromise that will meet federal court demands to reduce the prison population by the end of the year. With just four days of hearings scheduled to consider hundreds of remaining bills, some of this year’s most contentious issues remain unresolved while the Democratic leaders of the Senate and

Assembly try to work a compromise over how to address the state’s prison crisis. In addition to the competing prison proposals, lawmakers will consider changes to the most stringent environmental law in the country. The debate over the California Environmental Quality Act is pitting environmentalists against business interests and includes fast-track provisions to aid a planned NBA arena for the Sacramento Kings. Regulations for the oil and gas drilling technique known as fracking, a minimum wage increase and whether to strip the tax exempt status of the Boy Scouts because the group excludes gay adults also are on the agenda for the end of this year’s session. “There are a few hot buttons and controversies,” said Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento, adding

later that, “We’ll get it done.” Hanging over the lawmakers is a federal court order requiring California to reduce its prison population by about 9,600 inmates by year’s end to improve the delivery of medical and mental health care. Steinberg is at odds with Assembly Speaker John Perez, D-Los Angeles, Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown and both Republican leaders over whether to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on rehabilitation programs, as Steinberg wants, or to lease empty cells in private prisons or county jails, as the others want. Steinberg predicted a compromise, while Sen. Jim Nielsen, R-Gerber, said the prison dispute is unlikely to be resolved unless Brown calls a special legislative sesSEE BILLS PAGE 9

12 tips for 12th graders

MANGO leaves a bad taste

Editor: 1. Don’t give away too much information. People will always judge your college choices and try to poo-poo every school on your list. They’ll say things like “Oh you won’t get in there” or “Good luck with that.” Remember, remarks like this often have to do with the naysayers’ own experiences with a particular school. 2. Don’t base your decision to apply/not apply to and later to attend/not attend a school based on an image or stigma that people attach to the institution Do a lot of research on different schools and apply to the campuses that most cater to your needs, not your dad’s, not your aunt’s, not your best friend’s. 3. Start your essays early ... NOW! The sooner you can have your essays, yes, all of them (UC, Common Application and Supplemental) done, the sooner you can hand them to your college counselor for review. 4. Don’t just write your average essay. Colleges are tired of hearing about how much your family means to you and about how many community service hours you have done at a place that you pretend to really care about. Be painfully honest. Be funny. By the end of the day, essay readers are dying for a giggle. 5. Talk to your college counselor ASAP. And get on his/her good side. This person will do a lot for you, and some things will happen behind the scenes. They will be mailing out your transcripts, they will send out weekly reminders of deadlines, heck, they may even lobby for you to be a scholarship recipient at the end of the year. 6. Ask for letters of recommendation the second/third week of school if you haven’t already done so. Teachers’ and advisers’ lists will get long, fast. Be proactive and ask for the letter early to ensure that you are at the top of their list. 7. Ask politely for a letter of recommendation and GO IN PERSON to request one. An e-mail is a bit inconsiderate. Unless the teacher/adviser specifically asks you to e-mail him/her all questions and requests, speaking to your prospective letter-writer in person is the polite norm. 8. Take your last SATs/ACTs early in the fall. You only have two more sittings to get it right before scores must be sent off. Start preparing in August, your weekends should be consumed with pouring over SAT/ACT books. 9. Get your AP books, tomorrow. And start going through them from day one of your AP class. Get ahead. Just do it. 10. Buy all your senior-year paraphernalia as soon as it is offered. Prices for caps and gowns, prom tickets, senior portraits, senior gear, etc. go up if you don’t jump on the chances to purchase early. Wait in the long lines. 11 . Don’t kowtow to senioritis. You don’t have to be immune to it. You choose to be. And on that same note, if you are admitted anywhere Early Decision, don’t let your guard down. Keep the grades up. A college will revoke your offer of admission if your average plummets. 12. Take advantage of all you can. This is your last year of high school. Go to all schoolrelated events. Talk to your teachers/advisers, don’t forget they are all college educated and have their fair share of crazy dorm stories to tell you. Explore. If you have never been involved with the theater department and thought you never would be, go to a drama club meeting, volunteer to be on the lighting crew. It’s never too late to call your high school home.

CITY OFFICIALS ARE REVIEWING CONCEPTS

for a Michigan Avenue Neighborhood Greenway, or MANGO. LEMON would be a better acronym. MANGO is a plan to convert Michigan Avenue and adjoining streets in the Pico Neighborhood (including portions of Delaware and Virginia avenues) into a more bike and pedestrian friendly byway from Ocean Avenue on the western end to the Bergamot Station Expo Light Rail station and Expo Bike and Pedestrian Path on the eastern end. According to the Aug. 28 staff report, MANGO, “would provide residents and visitors with a safe and comfortable place to walk, bike, and interact with neighbors, all while connecting the community to important destinations including schools, job centers, and future Expo stations.” As if this mostly quiet residential neighborhood isn’t safe and comfortable, already. MANGO contains the usual elements — “roadway calming, increased landscaping, sidewalk widening, bike facilities, and enhanced crosswalks … The project will make it easier to get around Santa Monica on foot and by bicycle, and is intended to enhance the livability of the neighborhood and improve environmental quality.” Many neighbors strongly disagree. Achieving this could mean narrowing or removing Michigan’s traffic lanes from Santa Monica High School to 20th Street. Among the options being considered are making most of Michigan Avenue one way (east to west) and installing traffic roundabouts at key intersections. By far and away, the worst aspect of this proposal is removal of high-demand parking space on one side of the street. With many older apartment buildings underparked — especially with multiple tenants in apartments each owning cars, street parking is a scare commodity. Fear not, City Hall planners have an answer: Create diagonal parking on some intersecting side streets to create more parking space. This also involves narrowing or removing traffic lanes to accommodate the diagonal parking and it also means less safe space for bicycle riders. City staff reports these days are mostly a mix of fiction and/or propaganda. My favorite MANGO benefit is this gem: “1 in 4 SMMUSD students residing in 90404 were unable to pass at least 4 of 6 State physical fitness tests, which is the highest of the City’s ZIP codes. Providing more opportunities for active transportation will work toward reversing this.” Wow! We’re going to redo most of the Pico Neighborhood so school kids can get more exercise? I thought that’s what parks and sports programs were for. Lest I be accused of being anti-bicycle, let me say that I’m all for bike access. But, bicycles can share traffic lanes. Traffic lanes on quiet residential streets such as Michigan and others included in the greenway plan should clearly be marked for shared use by bicycles. Traffic, parking and neighborhood access should not be disrupted by the installation of exclusive bicycle lanes with barricades

between bike riders and the rest of the street. Michigan is a public street, not a linear playground. By the way, I can’t help but think what kind of a hullabaloo would result if City Hall bureaucrats proposed removing street parking, eliminating traffic lanes and installing wider sidewalks and constructing exclusive, barricaded bike lanes on Alta, Carlisle, Margarita or Georgina avenues on the city’s north side. Sharing the space makes sense. If we think smart, we can have the best of both worlds, but the folks in the Pico Neighborhood, especially along MANGO’s path, should not be denied parking or convenient access to their homes. BERGAMOT AREA PLAN IS A SCAM

Coming up tomorrow is the City Council’s adoption of review of the Bergamot Area Plan. The plan is supposed to provide a realistic blueprint for development and growth in these formerly industrial lands which are now the target du jour for extensive housing, office and transit elements. Directing staff to begin negotiating development agreements based on the adopted plan is also included. Problem is that the Bergamot Plan is deeply flawed and negotiating development agreements on it will lead to major planning failures. One problem is that the number of housing units projected for new developments in the plan area have already exceeded the city’s Land Use and Circulation Element (LUCE) projections for 2030 — and there’s more, lots more, to come. This occurrence alone should trigger the need for a new environmental impact report because key LUCE thresholds have been surpassed. Another key LUCE “fantasy” goal of “no new net trips” has zero chance of being met with the estimated 20,000 additional weekday car trips expected from recently completed and approved developments as well as pending developments including the Bergamot Transit Village Center development on the old Paper Mate site. Speaking of the Bergamot area, isn’t developer Hines calculating the new streets proposed for the site as part of its floor area ratio (FAR)? This little trick give Hines extra density. Only buildable land should be used in determining FAR. The project is before the Planning Commission on Wednesday. City planners and developers alike see the Bergamot area as one place to put lots of new housing to help correct what planners and politicos alike claim is a jobs/housing imbalance. Now they’re going to correct the imbalance by adding lots more development under the belief that people who work here will also live here if they can afford it and vice versa. That’s a big “if.” Or, that people who reside here will never change jobs and work out of town. All of this will exacerbate traffic, congestion and crowding. The current Bergamot Area Plan is a bogus way to justify the unjustifiable and facilitate irresponsible development. Bill can be reached at mr.bilbau@gmail.com.

GREEN WAY: A new film by Academy Award-

Brazilian rubber tappers take center stage in Act four, as narrated by Isabel Allende, in their fight to save their Amazon rainforest. Lastly, Act five focuses on Bill McKibben, as told by Meryl Streep, and the 25-year effort to address the foremost issue of our time: climate change. Intertwined within these main stories are strands including the struggle for environmental justice, getting “back to the land,” and sustainability efforts in the developing world. The film ends on an optimistic note, driving home the point that environmentalism is really about civilizational change and bringing industrial society into balance with nature and that each of us can make a difference with a little effort. Those interested in seeing the film should check out the schedule of theatrical releases at the film’s website, afiercegreenfire.com. The website also features more information on the film and features historical photos of some of the scenes and events depicted in it.

“A Fierce Green Fire” is a new film documenting the rise of the modern environmental movement from the 1960s through the present day. It premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival and will be playing at select theaters across the country beginning in September 2013. Educators, environmental groups and grassroots activists also will be showing the film at small and large events from coast to coast over the course of the fall. Written and directed by Mark Kitchell, Academy Awardnominated director of Berkeley in the Sixties, “A Fierce Green Fire” (the film) is based on the 1993 book of the same name by environmental journalist Philip Shabecoff. The phrase “a fierce green fire” refers to a longer passage in one of the seminal environmental books of the 20th century, 1949’s “A Sand County Almanac.” In the famous “Think Like a Mountain” section of that book, author Aldo Leopold relates his experience as part of a predator extirpation team that shoots a wolf in the New Mexico desert: “We reached the old wolf in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes. I realized then and have known ever since that there was something new to me in those eyes, something known only to her and to the mountain. I was young then and full of trigger-itch; I thought that because fewer wolves meant more deer, that no wolves would mean hunters’ paradise. But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view.” Kitchell’s film shows how this passage and other writings were instrumental in raising awareness about the importance of wise stewardship of the natural environment and as such played a crucial role in the re-birth of the environmental movement in the 1960s. Featuring five “acts,” each with its own central story and character, the film depicts a central environmental conflict of each decade since the 1960s. The first act, narrated by Robert Redford, focuses on David Brower and the Sierra Club’s battle to halt dams in the Grand Canyon in the 1960s. Act two, narrated by Ashley Judd, tells the story of Lois Gibbs and other Niagara Falls, New York residents’ struggle against pollution buried beneath their Love Canal neighborhood in the 1970s. Act three is all about Greenpeace and efforts by Captain Paul Watson to save whales and baby harp seals, as told by Van Jones. Chico Mendes and

Freeh: Possible corruption in oil spill claims handling CHEVEL JOHNSON MICHAEL KUNZELMAN Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS A former FBI director recommended Friday that the Justice Department investigate whether several lawyers plotted to corrupt the settlement program designed to compensate victims of BP’s 2010 Gulf oil spill. But the independent probe led by Louis Freeh didn’t find any evidence of wrongdoing by the multibillion-dollar settlement’s court-appointed administrator, who has been a target of BP’s increasingly aggressive campaign to challenge payouts to Gulf Coast businesses. Freeh, who was appointed by a federal judge to investigate alleged misconduct by a staff attorney who worked on the settlement program, cleared claims administrator Patrick Juneau of engaging in any “conflict of interest, or unethical or improper conduct.” The report also found nothing that warranted shutting down payments to victims of the oil spill, which spewed millions of gallons of oil into the water, fouling marshes, fisheries and beaches from Louisiana to Florida. However, Freeh concluded that then-top members of Juneau’s staff engaged in conduct that was improper, unethical and possibly criminal. He recommended that his report be forwarded to the Justice Department. “The nature and seriousness of this type conduct varied in degree but was pervasive and, at its extreme, may have constituted criminal conduct,” the report said. Freeh’s probe also isn’t over. His report said his work is “ongoing” and will result in recommendations for strengthening the settlement program’s operations and antifraud measures. Juneau said Freeh’s report validates his team’s work, and he played down the alleged misconduct by two former members of his staff as an “isolated situation.” “We will continue the job of processing claims,” he said in a statement. “We welcome the recommendations from the Freeh report and we look forward to working with him to help improve all aspects of the claims process.” BP spokesman Geoff Morrell said the report “confirms what BP has suspected for some time: there has been fraud and unethical conduct within the facility itself and among various claimants and their lawyers —and immediate steps need to be taken to prevent it in the future.” “The evidence of conflicts of interest and misconduct assembled in Judge Freeh’s report is shocking, but it simply underscores that neither BP nor the public has had any idea of what’s really going on within the (settlement program),” Morrell said. “Judge Freeh’s continued investigation is essential to assuring public confidence in the integrity of the claims process.” Two of the lead plaintiffs’ lawyers who brokered the settlement with BP last year said Freeh’s report “confirmed what we knew to be true all along: that Patrick Juneau has, for more than a year, led the Court-Supervised Settlement Program with integrity, transparency and objectivity.” “It is a testament to Mr. Juneau’s running of the program that Judge Freeh’s recommended that the Settlement Program con-

tinue paying claims unabated, with Juneau at the helm,” the attorneys, Stephen Herman and Jim Roy, said in a statement. While the report cites certain conduct within the program as problematic, Freeh said, “this should not prevent the (settlement program) from fairly and efficiently processing and paying honest and legitimate claims in a timely manner.” It also found that two private attorneys — Glen Lerner and Jon Andry — used Lionel Sutton, then a lawyer on Juneau’s staff, to expedite a claim by their firm for nearly $8 million. In return, Sutton received more than $40,000 in fees from payments on claims he had referred to their law firm before joining Juneau’s staff, the report says. Freeh recommended turning over his report to the Justice Department and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Louisiana to determine whether Sutton, Lerner, Andry or Sutton’s wife Christine Reitano, who also worked as a lawyer on Juneau’s staff, violated any federal laws “regarding fraud, money laundering and conspiracy.” Freeh also recommended that the court consider disallowing the $7.9 million payment of The Andry Law Firm claim based on “long-held principles of equity which prohibit a party before the court to benefit and enrich itself after having engaged in dishonest, unethical and improper conduct.” “In this matter, the conduct of The Andry Law Firm is particularly egregious,” the report said. “In effect, Mr. Jon Andry’s AndryLerner firm was making secret, improper payments to Mr. Sutton at the precise time Mr. Sutton was a senior CAO attorney, working in concert with Mr. Jon Andry to expedite payment of The Andry Law Firm claim.” Michael Walsh, an attorney for Lionel Sutton, said Freeh’s allegations about his client’s conduct possibly warranting a criminal investigation are “absolutely unfounded.” “There was no criminal activity on Mr. Sutton’s part,” Walsh said. “If Mr. Sutton had done anything criminally wrong, he would not have cooperated with Mr. Freeh.” James Cobb, a lawyer for Andry, said his client hasn’t done anything wrong and doesn’t deserve to be smeared by Freeh. “It appears to me that Mr. Freeh reached a conclusion first and then worked his way backwards, citing facts which are unsupported in the record,” Cobb said. Lawyers for Lerner and Reitano didn’t immediately respond to emails seeking comment. Sutton resigned from his job at the settlement program in June. Reitano was fired later the same month. She has demanded to be reinstated, saying she didn’t do anything wrong. BP had asked U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier to suspend all settlement payments to businesses and residents pending the outcome of Freeh’s investigation, but the judge denied that request on two separate occasions. In April 2010, the oil drilling rig Deepwater Horizon exploded off the Louisiana coast, killing 11 workers and triggering the massive oil spill. BP set up a compensation fund for individuals and businesses hurt by the spill and committed $20 billion. Juneau took over the processing of claims after the settlement was reached last year.

CHEF FROM PAGE 1 students from the culinary program. After getting laid off as a pre-school teacher, she wanted to do something else and turned to the program to get another skill under her belt. “He’s a great teacher. He’s really tough, but he’s fair and he definitely gives you the skills you need,” Salinas said. “And how far you want to develop the skills he gives you is up to you.” She learned knife skills from him as well as different techniques to cut vegetables and fruits. Walker also helped her re-create a traditional El Salvadorian pupusa with mango habanero salsa and red pickled cabbage. “He puts colors into food and you look at it and you think ‘the colors look so amazing,’” Salinas said. “He says, ‘the food has to dance in your mouth.’” Walker didn’t always know he wanted to make food dance. He initially worked in public relations and started hanging around event planners and catering chefs. He became inspired to go to culinary school and in 2003, began working in fine dining. But the long hours took a toll and he decided to make a transition into teaching, finding himself at St. Joseph Center revamping its culinary program in 2007. “I said, ‘I was your guy. I’m from the neighborhood and I understand the people,” Walker said. “I was trained very well with all my culinary skills.” He ended up designing a whole new course that focused on farm to table, seasonal and classical cooking techniques so students were prepared to get higher paying jobs at nicer restaurants. He also has a highend catering business on the side. At St. Joseph, he relies on French tech-

nique but his flavor profiles include Asian/Latin fusion cooking, he said. Walker is one of the most skilled chefs St. Joseph has had, Va Lecia Adams Kellum, executive director, said. She said he’s brought higher level skills to the cooking at the cafe and the culinary training students. Walker is known for his sauces and dressings, among other things, she said. “We can’t wait to see how it all turns out,” Kellum said. The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet rely on the old Scripture that deals with teaching people how to fish. “I hope that when people see we are not only doing great work of serving and helping people deal with issues around hunger

and homelessness, but also teaching people to help themselves,” Kellum said. Walker said he feels “privileged” to work for St. Joseph and teach folks who are unemployed or underemployed. “I have three daughters and I think I’m a great example to them, they know their dad is a chef and a teacher and I’m always helping the less fortunate,” Walker said. “Everybody is so excited about the show premiering on Tuesday. There’s a buzz on the street.” ameera@smdp.com

BILLS FROM PAGE 3 sion for later in the year. Several bills remain that the California Chamber of Commerce labeled “job killers,” most notably AB10, by Assemblyman Luis Alejo, D-Watsonville. His bill would raise the state’s minimum wage from the current $8 an hour to $10 by 2018. The bill would drive up other wages and workers’ compensation costs, said Jennifer Barrera, an advocate with the chamber. “If you don’t have the money right now to pay for that extra cost, then it’s going to cut jobs,” she said. Business groups also are concerned that Steinberg’s proposal to change the state’s landmark environmental law in a way that would accelerate the legal process when lawsuits are filed will not go far enough. The bill has recently been tied to other legislation that would fast-track a downtown arena for the Sacramento Kings. Lawmakers this year introduced 2,189 bills, including 1,376 in the Assembly and 813 in the Senate. Some of the remaining high-profile bills to be considered during the Legislature’s final week include: • SB323 by Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, which attempts to pressure the Boy Scouts of America into fully accepting gay members. The bill would deny state tax breaks to youth groups that discriminate on the basis of gender identity, race, sexual orientation, nationality, religion or religious affiliation. Conservative legal aid groups promise to sue if the measure becomes law. • AB4 by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, which would prohibit law enforcement agencies from detaining people for deportation if they are living in the country illegally and are arrested for a minor crime. Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed similar legislation last year because it did not let officials detain those convicted of crimes such as child abuse and drug trafficking. The bill creates a statewide standard for how local agencies comply with a federal program that

requires law enforcement to check the immigration status of anyone arrested. • AB1222 by Democratic Assemblymen Roger Dickinson of Sacramento and Richard Bloom of Santa Monica, which would help retain $1.6 billion in federal grants to transit agencies statewide. A deal crafted by Democratic leaders responds to a finding by the U.S. Department of Labor that last year’s public employee pension changes violate union members’ collective bargaining rights. The bill would temporarily exempt workers at public transit agencies from contributing more to their retirement funds, while the state and a local transit agency sue over the federal agency’s ruling. • SB4 by Sen. Fran Pavley, D-Agoura Hills, which would regulate an oil and gas drilling technique known as “fracking.” The bill would require permits and disclosure of what chemicals are used. It also would require state and local agencies to develop regulations and study the effects of the practice. Her bill is the only fracking-regulation bill to survive to the end of session. • About two dozen gun control bills are awaiting final consideration. Among the pending measures are ones that would ban the sale of semi-automatic rifles that accept detachable ammunition magazines and outlaw the possession of ammunition magazines holding more than 10 bullets, even by those who already own the magazines. The pending legislation would add to California’s already strict gun laws and follows similar efforts in other states in the wake of mass shootings in Connecticut and Colorado. • AB1309 by Assemblyman Henry Perea, D-Fresno, which would prohibit professional athletes who spent most of their careers with teams in other states from filing workers’ compensation claims in California. Supporters say such out-of-state claims put a burden on the state’s workers’ compensation system and could raise insurance costs. Opponents say the bill is an attempt by owners of football, baseball, basketball, hockey and soccer teams to avoid liability for legitimate injuries. It passed the Senate on a 34-2 vote Friday and was returned to the Assembly for final action.

WATER FROM PAGE 1 a trickle. The cost of replacing those wells and extracting groundwater ballooned by 400 percent. “We became the largest energy demand in the region — $11 million a year for electricity just to run the pumps,” said Martin Querin, manager of the city’s water division, which supplies 550,000 residents. Fresno is just one player in a water war that’s quietly being fought underground. Throughout the Central Valley — one of the world’s most productive agricultural regions — farmers, residents and cities have seen their wells go dry. Those who can afford it have drilled deeper wells that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Experts say water supplies have been strained by growing city populations and massive tracts of newly planted orchards and vineyards. “Water levels are dropping dramatically in some areas. It’s never been this bad,” said Steve Arthur, vice president of Arthur and Orum Well Drilling. The drops create concerns that groundwater is becoming unaffordable and that overuse could cause serious land subsidence, which can damage infrastructure such as roads. “We can’t keep over-pumping groundwater,” said Peter Gleick, president of Pacific Institute, a nonpartisan research group in Oakland. “It’s simply unsustainable and not economically viable in the long run.” California has few rules governing groundwater. While some basins limit pumping through management plans or court rulings, anyone can build a well and pump unlimited amounts in most of the state. The U.S. Geological Survey has found in much of California — the San Joaquin Valley, the Central Coast and Southern California — more water has historically been pulled out of the ground than was replenished.

We have you covered Climate change and droughts are putting additional pressure on aquifers, said USGS hydrologist Claudia C. Faunt. There also is a recent shift among California farmers to replace row crops such as tomatoes with orchards, which can’t be scaled back in dry times. On the west side of the Valley, massive farms whose surface water deliveries have been severely curtailed to protect fish in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta are increasingly relying on groundwater and digging deeper wells. Farmers have also seen wells go dry east of Modesto in the Sierra foothills, where they’ve planted hundreds of thousands of acres of new orchards. They’ve been forced to drill new wells as deep as 800 feet. “There are more straws taking water out of the basin,” said Al Rossini, a third generation farmer from Oakdale. And whoever has the longest straw — and the deepest pockets — is winning. Some small farmers can’t afford to drill deeper. Rural residents who rely on smaller wells for drinking, cooking and bathing are also feeling the brunt. “Our well went dry, and we had to redrill,” said Gerald Vieira, a retired Denair resident. Vieira paid $13,000 this summer for a new well — drilled 200 feet deeper than it had been before. A dozen of his neighbors also bought new wells. Some farmers and urban districts are now trying to find solutions to prevent groundwater overuse. Fresno plans to use a combination of surface, ground and treated wastewater and to greatly expand the city’s program to replenish groundwater, and farmers in the Sierra foothills also plan to dig recharging ponds. Meanwhile, many farmers and other water users say the state must build more storage, especially groundwater banks, to hold water during wet years. “Water is like blood to the body,” said Rossini. “Without water, California won’t be the same state.”

UCLA FROM PAGE 1 man who had a positive impact on everyone who knew him. He was a great teammate who was loved and respected by his entire team. Our thoughts are with the Pasquale family.” UCLA said Pasquale played in its seasonopening victory over Nevada on Aug. 31, although his name and No. 36 jersey didn’t appear on the participation report. The No. 16 Bruins were off this weekend. Pasquale’s teammates reacted on Twitter as the news of his death came out Sunday morning.

“Love you PACMAN. Brother for life. Bruin for Life,” Bruins guard Xavier Su’a Filo tweeted. “The definition of a true team player. Came to practice every day ready to work and give his all for his teammates.” Dietrich Riley, a former UCLA safety whose career ended due to injury this summer, tweeted that Pasquale “took every snap on the scout team. Never complained.” “The UCLA family lost a wonderful young man who represented the university, his team and his family well,” UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said. “Our hearts go out to the Pasquale family, and we will do everything we can to assist and support them, as well as his teammates, as they go through this unthinkable tragedy.”

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ Your ability to start a conversation and keep it going will come into play. As you will discover, you have a lot of anger bubbling up. You might feel as if you can discuss what is going on with you at this point in time. Tonight: Go out and let off some steam with a friend.

Monday, September 9, 2013

★★★★ If you're feeling frustrated, work on completing a project; you will find that you feel a lot better as a result. Detach, and you will be able to see what is really bothering you. It would be wise to step back and avoid starting a fight for no reason. Tonight: Watch a favorite TV show.

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

This year you will want to communicate more, but you often might feel as if something is holding you back. A sibling or someone in your daily environment could be difficult. Many of you will be increasing your education, and you'll be focused. This pursuit will be time-consuming. If you are single, you do not need to look for anyone. You will meet someone naturally in your daily travels. If you are attached, the two of you seem inclined to break past some of your barriers. SCORPIO cares, but sometimes is cold.

GETTING STARTED There are many strategies to solving Sudoku. One way to begin is to examine each 3x3 grid and figure out which numbers are missing. Then, based on the other numbers in the row and column of each blank cell, find which of the missing numbers will work. Eliminating numbers will eventually lead you to the answer.

SOLUTIONS TO YESTERDAY’S PUZZLE

■ Loco Parentis: First-time mother Amy Webb proudly notates dozens of data points about her child each day and obsessively tracks their detailed progression by computer on spreadsheets, according to the provocative first-person account she wrote for Slate.com in July. In categories ranging from ordinary vital signs, to the kid's progress in sound-making, to dietary reactions, to quantity and quality of each poop, stats are kept 24/7 (even with a bedside laptop to facilitate nighttime entries). She began tracking her own health during pregnancy, but then decided, "Why stop now?" when her daughter was born. Webb's pediatrician rated the kid's health as "A-minus," but the parents' as "C," adding: "You guys need to relax. Leave the spreadsheets (out)." Webb and her husband remain confident that their extreme tracking optimizes their chances of raising a healthy daughter. ■ Dr. Timothy Sweo said later that he was only trying to make his diagnosis of lumbar lordosis "less technical" for patient Terry Ragland when he described her condition as "ghetto booty." The shape of her spine makes her buttocks stick out more, he said, and he prescribed pain medication as there is no cure, per se. Nonetheless, Ragland felt insulted and filed a complaint against Dr. Sweo with the Tennessee Department of Health in July. Said she, "I couldn't believe he said that."

TODAY IN HISTORY – The Palestine L i b e r a t i o n Organization officially recognizes Israel as a legitimate state. – Ahmed Shah Massoud, leader of the Northern Alliance, is assassinated in Afghanistan by two al Qaeda assassins who claimed to be Arab journalists wanting an interview. – At exactly 01:46:40 UTC, the Unix billenium is reached, marking the beginning of the use of 10-digit decimal Unix timestamps.
