at estimates used to calculate the amount of traffic and parking spaces needed for new development in light of research brought forward by a resident showing that companies are squeezing more workers into less square footage than previously assumed. Numbers produced by CoreNet Global, a leading association for corporate real estate executives, suggest that companies are vastly reducing the amount of office space allotted per worker both to cut costs and to embrace a more flexible office environment with less assigned space to promote collaboration. CoreNet Global found that modern offices set aside roughly 171 square feet for each worker, a number that many anticipate will fall to 151 square feet within five years if not more. That’s a far cry from staff estimates used in a contract for the Bergamot Transit Village, a massive mixed-use project that includes a great deal of “creative” office space. According to the development agreement drafted between City Hall and the developer Hines Corporation, those employees will have 286 square-feet per worker. That didn’t seem quite right to Valerie Griffin, a self-proclaimed techie who has watched her own use of office space diminish vastly over the years as work spaces get smaller and bulky items like filing cabinets become a thing of the past. The CoreNet Global report as well as other articles by the Los Angeles Times shored up Griffin’s theories on the subject, which the City Council discussed at their Sept. 11 meeting. The implications on this and other development agreements are daunting. “Instead of having 1,730 workers in the amount of space they were proposing, it would be 5,000 to 6,000,” she said. Those potentially uncounted workers could spell trouble if you consider the

DOWNTOWN If William Montgomery was born in the 1950s instead of the 1970s, he would most likely not be employed as a grocery clerk, would not have his own apartment in Santa Monica and certainly wouldn’t have his picture displayed in New York’s Times Square. Montgomery, 37, has Down syndrome, a chromosomal condition that affects one in every 691 babies born in the United States each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It was just three decades ago that people with Down syndrome had a life expectancy of 25 years. Today, thanks to advances in medicine, that number has jumped to 60, and with more assistance available and acceptance in society, people like Montgomery are able to live independently and contribute to their communities instead of being locked away in an institution and forgotten. It was hard to miss them this past Saturday when thousands of people with Down syndrome and their families took over Times Square to take part in the 18th annual New York City Buddy Walk, an opportunity to promote the value, acceptance and Daniel Archuleta. daniela@smdp.com

School officials deny player’s ceremony BY DANIEL ARCHULETA Managing Editor

SAMOHI A denial by school officials has forced standout wide receiver Sebastian LaRue and his family to scramble for an offcampus location to hold a ceremony to honor his selection to an elite national all-star game.

Jason Kurtenbach, a house principal at Santa Monica High School, said that the administration wanted to do what was “right for Sebastian” in denying sports network ESPN and athletic gear maker Under Armour’s request to hold a ceremony on campus to note LaRue’s selection to a prestigious all-star game the two companies sponsor.

L.A. preps for freeway closure and Carmageddon II

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL

Valencia passes way to 41-13 win over Samohi

JOHN ROGERS Associated Press

LOS ANGELES “Carmageddon II” — the sequel — is coming to one of the nation’s most crowded freeways, and authorities are hoping its subtitle won’t be “The Traffic Strikes Back.” Transportation officials say what they would like to see during the last weekend of September is a rerun of last year’s two-day closure, when hundreds of thousands of motorists dodged doomsday predictions by staying away until the busy, 10-mile stretch of Interstate 405 reopened. It was one of the lightest freeway traffic weekends anyone in Los Angeles could remember. Hopes are high that next weekend will have the same happy result, as businesses and residents prepare to avoid the roadway that must close again so work can be completed on a bridge. At Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, just outside the Carmageddon Zone, officials plan to house as many as 300 doctors, nurses and other staff members in dorms at nearby hotels so nobody will have trouble getting to work. Some patients, including women in the latter stages of complicated pregnancies, are being encouraged to check in before the freeway closes at 12:01 a.m. Sept. 29. “Everybody, including myself, will be here to man the entire event, just to make sure everything goes safely for our patients and staff,” says Shannon O’Kelley, the hospital’s chief operations officer. A group of art enthusiasts, meanwhile, formed “Artmageddon,” featuring activities at dozens of museums and art-house theaters and listing them on the website artmageddonla.com. People are encouraged to walk or bike. The UCLA campus, with about 41,000 students, has emergency traffic diversion plans in place. In Santa Monica, just down the road, a new emergency operations center opened last month. Authorities say every major transit, law enforcement and emergency services agency in the area has been cooperating in making contingency plans. In the meantime, just what should people do over the weekend when they will hopefully be too afraid to pull out of their driveways? “Eat, Shop and Play Locally,” advises the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation

no answer for Valencia’s passing game Friday during a 41-13 drubbing at Santa Monica College. Valencia quarterback Sean Murphy carved up the Samohi defense all night, racking up five touchdown passes en route to the win. It’s the second lopsided loss in a row for Samohi, who fell to Mater Dei last week in a rout. “Guys are not doing what they are supposed to do,” Samohi head coach Travis Clark said. “This stuff is correctible.” Valencia dominated the first half rolling to a comfortable 28-0 lead. Samohi was able to muster some offense during the second half. Touted wide receiver Sebastian LaRue was inserted as the quarterback, running a wild cat-type offense. The tactic opened up space for Samohi to run its regular offense behind quarterback Ryan Barbarin, who connected with LaRue for a score to cap a drive that began with the wide receiver behind center. “We’ve been working on it all summer,” Clark said of the LaRue at quarterback situation. “It was successful.” The loss sends Samohi to 2-2 on the season as they prepare for another Southern California heavyweight in Hart next Friday on the road.

Editor:

I have never felt more compelled to ask for your help. This election is absolutely critical: we must restore California’s financial health and prevent corporations from taking over our political process. Proposition 30 is Gov. Brown’s tax and education initiative. Prop. 30 must pass to ensure that there are no further cuts in education or public safety. If it fails, there will be fewer teachers in the classrooms, collegelevel classes will be cut and college tuition will go through the roof. To avoid disastrous results, we must help our fellow Californians understand the importance of passing this measure. Proposition 32 is Citizens United on steroids. Quite simply, the California Democratic Party as we know it will cease to exist if this measure passes. Billionaires and super PACs will rule the political landscape — leaving California working families in the dust. The deceptiveness of Prop. 32 is particularly concerning. It appears to be even-handed. But don’t be fooled. That is why I need your help in educating voters on the importance of defeating Prop. 32. I am not asking for money. I am asking for just a bit of your time. An hour or two if you’re working and don’t have much free time is all I ask. Two or three hours a week if you do have the time, calling fellow California Democrats to educate them and get them to the polls. I know the Palisades Democratic Club has asked for help in the past. But the stakes have never been this high. No doubt you share my concern for the future of California. There are only days left until Election Day, and your help will make all the difference.

It’s time to address how poorly City Hall serves the public. Last Thursday, this newspaper ran a news story about how Bezian’s Bread, a 19-year purveyor at Wednesday’s Downtown Farmers’ Market had been given the boot. In October 2010, the City Council approved changes suggested by the City Attorney’s Office that created criteria and an application and review process for periodically turning over prepared food vendors and bringing in new suppliers. The changes only applied to products such as breads, coffee service, baked goods, snacks and other prepared foods. Sustainability, source of ingredients, market experience and value are the criteria for market participation. Santa Monica purveyors get the highest priority. New vendors are selected by a secret fiveperson review committee comprised of City Hall staff and three members of the public (market patrons) recommended by neighborhood groups. Those who lose out can reapply every few years. Two years ago Old Town Bakery, which sold bread and cakes at the Pico Market for 15 years, was axed and replaced by a Pico Boulevard baker who doubled bread prices and collected Los Angeles County health code violations. Long timers Lox of Bagels and Expresso Experience also left. At the Main Street market, Richard “The Breadman” Schackne was terminated along with Corn Maiden Tamales, Cafe Laurent and Bower’s Gourmet Sausage. This year, Bezian’s Breads was replaced by Venicebased Red Bread. All this is because city staff apparently doesn’t have enough to do, so they micromismanage. Complaints are ignored. It’s why I stopped shopping the Pico Market. Apparently many others did the same because Pico’s traffic declined dramatically after changes were made. I’m still shopping Brentwood’s Sunday Farmers’ Market where there’s nobody from our City Hall to screw things up. Yeah! How about the latest “free speech” controversy surrounding Big Blue Bus ads? City Hall makes good money selling ad space on municipal buses. In 2007, management pulled banners featuring a bevy of bikini-clad women advertising the “Top Model” TV show allegedly because of citizen complaints. There was nothing salacious or even controversial about the ads and the censorship and loss of revenue was beyond dumb. Proving that stupidity still rides shotgun on Big Blue these days, its managers informed AIDS Project LA that they wouldn’t allow bus banners for the annual AIDS Walk Los Angeles fundraiser this year. It seems that Big Blue’s policy against non-commercial ads had been in effect since 2000. But, buses still carried ads for AIDS walk, accepting up to $70,000 annually in ad orders over the last five years. Oops. However, when a deputy city attorney pointed out there was a policy prohibiting nonprofit/charity bus ads, AIDS walk was thrown off the bus. Nonprofits are on the

banned list along with liquor, firearms, tobacco products and political speech ads. The nonprofit/charity ban was enacted so that decisions on potentially offensive advertising on buses wouldn’t have to be made. There were fears that Big Blue might be forced into selling banner space to the Ku Klux Klan, anti-gay churches or hate groups. Because Big Blue is a public entity, City Hall can’t arbitrarily pick and choose ads it feels are acceptable. Without an outright ban, nonprofits denied advertising space could sue for discrimination. Sounds like a repeat of the Palisades Park nativity display controversy, huh? The loss of valuable public messaging and the income it brings is unfortunate. No more “Give blood” ads from the American Red Cross, “Exercise more” banners from the YMCA or valuable messages from any of a number of worthwhile nonprofit organizations. There are safeguards City Hall can use such as requiring all nonprofits who want to advertise to be a government-recognized charity, have a state or federal nonprofit tax status or meet the criteria for a legitimate charity as set forth by the County of Los Angeles. A motion was introduced at the Sept. 11 council meeting to review ad policy. Let’s hope that reason prevails and that advertising dollars can again flow into Big Blue’s coffers while nonprofits and charities can regain a place where important information can reach the public. Then there’s the continuing soap opera — Santa Monica’s version of “Game of Thrones.” The war over who rules the Wilshire-Montana neighborhood organization (Wilmont) began in June, when a cadre of newer members ran for the board of directors. Calling it an illegal palace coup, Chair Valerie Griffin canceled the annual meeting and election. Votes were cast anyway and when they were finally counted, a number of challengers had predictably won board seats. Griffin claimed the election was out of order and invalid. The debate intensified when laughably written “warning” letters were sent to newlyelected board members canceling their Wilmont memberships by a local attorney hired by Wilmont. Recently, Griffin announced a new annual meeting and election for Oct. 20. This is nothing more than a pointless feud between Griffin and her old board members who support the Fairmont Miramar hotel expansion and the newlyelected/ex-communicated members who oppose it. At stake is Wilmont’s continued endorsement of the Fairmont project, as if anyone cares. Wilmont is one of the neighborhood groups officially recognized by City Hall. Up to $4,000 in grants which are usually used for outreach can be applied for annually by recognized neighborhood organizations who meet City Hall’s criteria. Until Wilmont’s governance is finally determined, City Hall has no choice but to withhold grants and benefits including free meeting space in city facilities.

success story: a natural gas boom created by drilling company innovation, delivering a vast new source of cheap energy without the government subsidies that solar and wind power demand. “The free market has worked its magic,” the Barnett Shale Energy Education Council, an industry group, claimed over the summer. The boom happened “away from the greedy grasp of Washington,” the American Enterprise Institute, a think tank, wrote in an essay this year. If bureaucrats “had known this was going on,” the essay went on, “surely Washington would have done something to slow it down, tax it more, or stop it altogether.” But those who helped pioneer the technique known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, recall a different path. Over three decades, from the shale fields of Texas and Wyoming to the Marcellus in the Northeast, the federal government contributed more than $100 million in research to develop fracking, and billions more in tax breaks. Now, those industry pioneers say their own effort shows that the government should back research into future sources of energy — for decades, if need be — to promote breakthroughs. For all its success now, many people in the oil and gas industry itself once thought shale gas was a waste of time. “There’s no point in mincing words. Some people thought it was stupid,” said Dan Steward, a geologist who began working with the Texas natural gas firm Mitchell Energy in 1981. Steward estimated that in the early years, “probably 90 percent of the people” in the firm didn’t believe shale gas would be profitable. “Did I know it was going to work? Hell no,” Steward added. Shale is a rock formation thousands of feet underground. Among its largest U.S. deposits are the Marcellus Shale, under parts of Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio and West Virginia, and the Barnett Shale is in north Texas. Geologists knew shale contained gas, but for more than 100 years the industry focused on shallower reserves. With fracking, large volumes of water, along with sand and hazardous chemicals, are injected underground to break rock apart and free the gas. In 1975, the Department of Energy began funding research into fracking and horizontal drilling, where wells go down and then sideways for thousands of feet. But it took more than 20 years to perfect

the process. Alex Crawley, a former Department of Energy employee, recalled that some early tests were spectacular — in a bad way. A test of fracking explosives in Morgantown, W.Va., “blew the pipe out of the well about 600 feet high” in the 1970s, Crawley said. Luckily, no one was killed. He added that a 1975 test well in Wyoming “produced a lot of water.” Steward recalled that Mitchell Energy didn’t even cover the cost of fracking on shale tests until the 36th well was drilled. “There’s not a lot of companies that would stay with something this long. Most companies would have given up,” he said, crediting founder George Mitchell as a visionary who also got support from the government at key points. “The government has to be involved, to some degree, with new technologies,” Steward said. The first federal energy subsidies began in 1916, and until the 1970s they “focused almost exclusively on increasing the production of domestic oil and natural gas,” according to the Congressional Budget Office. More recently, the natural gas and petroleum industries altogether accounted for about $2.8 billion in federal energy subsidies in the 2010 fiscal year and about $14.7 billion went to renewable energies, the Department of Energy found. The figures include both direct expenditures and tax credits. Congress passed a huge tax break in 1980 specifically to encourage unconventional natural gas drilling, noted Alex Trembath, a researcher at the Breakthrough Institute, a California nonprofit that supports new ways of thinking about energy and the environment. Trembath said that the Department of Energy invested about $137 million in gas research over three decades, and that the federal tax credit for drillers amounted to $10 billion between 1980 and 2002. The work wasn’t all industry or all government, but both. One step at a time, the problems of shale drilling were solved. Crawley said Energy Department researchers processed drilling data on supercomputers at a federal lab. Later, technology created to track sounds of Russian submarines during the Cold War was repurposed to help the industry use sound to get a 3-D picture of shale deposits and track exactly where a drill bit was, thousands of feet underground. “It was a lot of pieces of technology that the industry thought would help them. Some worked out, some didn’t,” Crawley said.

Ahhh...the sweet smell of petrochemicals! The Environmental Working Group (EWG) reports that, while many popular perfumes, colognes and body sprays contain trace amounts of natural essences, they also typically contain a dozen or more potentially hazardous synthetic chemicals, some of which are derived from petroleum. To protect trade secrets, makers are allowed to withhold fragrance ingredients, so consumers can’t rely on labels to know what hazards may lurk inside that new bottle of perfume. “A rose may be a rose,” reports EWG. “But that rose-like fragrance in your perfume may be something else entirely, concocted from any number of the fragrance industry’s 3,100 stock chemical ingredients, the blend of which is almost always kept hidden from the consumer.” The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a coalition of over 100 groups seeking transparency about chemicals in cosmetics, commissioned independent laboratory tests that revealed 38 secret chemicals in 17 leading fragrances. The top offenders?: American Eagle Seventy Seven topped the list with 24, followed by Chanel Coco with 18 and Britney Spears Curious and Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio each with 17. “The average fragrance product tested contained 14 secret chemicals not listed on the label,” reports EWG, which analyzed the Campaign’s data. “Among them are chemicals associated with hormone disruption and allergic reactions, and many substances that have not been assessed for safety in per-

sonal care products.” EWG adds that some of the undisclosed ingredients are chemicals “with troubling hazardous properties or with a propensity to accumulate in human tissues.” Examples include diethyl phthalate, a chemical found in 97 percent of Americans and linked to sperm damage in human epidemiological studies, and musk ketone, which concentrates in human fat tissue and breast milk. EWG explains that ingredients not in a product’s “hidden fragrance mixture” must be listed on the label, so makers disclose some chemicals but “lump others together in the generic category of ‘fragrance’.” EWG blames the U.S. government in part, pointing out that the Food and Drug Administration “has not assessed the safety of the vast majority” of secret chemicals used in spray-on products such as fragrances. “Fragrance secrecy is legal due to a giant loophole in the Federal Fair Packaging and Labeling Act of 1973, which requires companies to list cosmetics ingredients on the product labels but explicitly exempts fragrance,” reports EWG. As such, the cosmetics industry has kept the public in the dark about fragrance ingredients, “even those that present potential health risks or build up in people’s bodies.” For more information, check out EWG’s May 2010 “Not So Sexy” report, available on the group’s website. Also, EWG’s SkinDeep database serves as an evolving source of information on the ingredients (and their health risks) in thousands of cosmetics and related products widely available on store shelves.

Authority, reciting its official Carmageddon II slogan. The agency is partnering with hundreds of restaurants, tourists attractions and other venues to offer discounts to people who can show they used mass transit to get there. If thousands of people hadn’t stayed home on a mid-July weekend last year, authorities say they might have caused a traffic backup so massive it could have spread to connecting freeways, gridlocking the entire city highway system. The result, “Carmageddon,” would have been miles and miles of idling cars filled with thousands and thousands of angry people. “The risk factors are exactly the same as they were last year, so nothing has changed in terms of the heartburn that traffic agency people are feeling right now,” says Dave Sotero, a spokesman for the transportation authority. It’s not just any freeway being shut down, but one that even on weekends, when traffic is relatively light, can carry a half-million vehicles. It’s also the one that links the city’s San Fernando Valley, where 1.7 million people live, to its dense, urbanized West Side and its beaches. As they did for the first Carmageddon, officials have been posting flashing freeway signs for weeks warning people all over the state to stay away. On Labor Day weekend, people driving in and out of the desert resort

We have you covered of Palm Springs, 100 miles to the east, began seeing the signs. “We wanted to get that image of what the stakes were by frankly alarming the public, getting the public’s attention, grabbing everybody by the lapels and saying, ‘This is a real project that is going to cause a real disaster if we aren’t prepared,’” says veteran Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, who is credited with publicly uttering the term Carmageddon. Although Yaroslavsky says he first heard the word from an aide, he jokes that it will be cited at the top of his obituary as one his greatest achievements. The freeway is scheduled to reopen at 5 a.m. Monday, Oct. 1, just ahead of the morning rush hour. Last year it opened 17 hours early, but Sotero says not to expect that again because there’s more work this time. When all the work in the area is completed toward the end of next year, there will be a new, wider and seismically safer bridge crossing the freeway at the city’s scenic Mulholland Drive. The 405 itself will also be wider, making room for a carpool lane through the Sepulveda Pass over the Santa Monica Mountains, where traffic notoriously clogs almost all the time. If the freeway doesn’t reopen on time, that’s when Carmageddon would really kick in. While they insist they don’t expect that to happen, officials say they will be ready if it does.

SPACE FROM PAGE 1 amount of additional cars on the road taking them to the office — the environmental impact report for the Bergamot Village Project already says some of the traffic impacts are “unavoidable” — and the parking spaces needed once they get there. Or not, said Richard Kadzis, vice president of strategic communications at CoreNet Global. While companies in general are trending downward in the amount of space per employee in order to achieve some major cost savings, they’re also creating more flexible, attractive workspaces with unassigned desks and open space. Gone are the cubicles of yesteryear. In their place are democratized spaces where all workers can get natural light and a chance at the open views, Kadzis said. The arrangement also encourages employees to work from home when possible, meaning not all of the employees that technically work for these companies will actually be traveling in on a daily basis. “They’re smaller because employees can work from home, go out with clients, work somewhere else inside the building,” Kadzis said. “Technology allows that to happen in ways it couldn’t happen even five years ago.” The proximity of mass transit can also

be a mitigating factor. The Bergamot project will be adjacent to the Bergamot Station of the Exposition Light Rail Line, something proponents have been pointing to for some time as a way to cut down on car trips going in and out of the proposed development. In any case, the Hines project is currently on hold, according to the Planning Commission caselist which has no new hearing date since August 2011, and the City Council has directed staff to work with the Planning Commission to review the office space per worker ratios to make sure they’re consistent with modern practices. That has to happen before City Hall gets too much further down the road with the revision of the zoning code, said Councilmember Kevin McKeown. “What this indicates is that we no longer live in the world of the 1980s when that 300 square foot number was given,” McKeown said. “We live in a world of Dilbert, where people are put into small cubicles.” Griffin, who has long been a vocal proponent of increased parking and reasonable development, was thrilled by the move. “I am so happy to live in a city where this is considered,” Griffin said. “Santa Monica is one of the first cities anywhere … to really study the impact of the modern workplace on modern urban planning. This is an incredibly forward-looking action for the city to take.”

RUNNING ROOM: Samohi’s Sebastian LaRue runs the ball against Valencia on Friday at home.

SAMOHI FROM PAGE 1 let’s do some ceremonies.’ But seriously, we cannot support a sporting good company coming to campus to take advantage of Sebastian in order to sell shirts.” Fretz could not be reached for comment. The decision didn’t sit well with Athletic Director Daniel Escalera. “Eligibility was a concern,” he said, “but, I wanted [the ceremony] to happen.” Escalera said that officials were concerned that this may hurt LaRue’s scholarship offer from USC, but other schools across the country allow the practice to occur, which is vexing to the family. Escalera and Kurtenbach both said that the ultimate decision came from the school’s principal, Fretz. But, both agreed that they would like to see a procedure in place to allow events like these to occur in the future. The LaRue family had gone back and forth with the school in an attempt to clear the event to no avail. Realizing the school’s hesitance to host the ceremony, they decided to go in a different direction because the crew staging the event was only in the

Southern California area for a limited time. As for LaRue himself, he can’t help but be a little emotional about the decision. “I’m just hurt by the whole situation.” he said. “I felt like this was honoring the school, but they don’t feel the same way.” This most recent incident is just the latest for the LaRue family. Dane exchanged a number of e-mails with administrators that articulated her disapproval of the release of the player’s transcripts to colleges interested in offering him a scholarship. LaRue ultimately agreed to commit to USC, but there were a bevy of schools that were recruiting him and still are. Dane wrote to school officials opposing their release of transcripts to the University of Nebraska without the consent of LaRue’s parents. Dane has since sealed her son’s transcripts, but is still upset at the entire situation. “This has been going on for a while,” Dane said, “Since he has been there, it has been a tug-of-war for any little thing.” Head Coach Travis Clark sympathizes with the family, saying that he would have liked the ceremony to take place on campus. “It’s too bad that it went down this way,” Clark said. “I’m just proud of Sebastian.” daniela@smdp.com

CP FROM PAGE 1 inclusion of people with Down syndrome. Buddy Walks will take place in more than 250 cities across the globe in October for Down Syndrome Awareness Month. “People with Down syndrome have come a long way in recent decades,” said Jordana Stern, communications and social media manager for NDSS. “For a long time people with Down syndrome were institutionalized. Now many live independently and they are included in schools more often and contribute to society in a number of ways.” William walked with his mother, Joanne Montgomery, and had his picture featured in a video displayed on the News Corporation Sony screen, located in the heart of Times Square. The Santa Monica High School graduate and Whole Foods clerk couldn’t have been more excited to not only board a plane and fly across the country, but also meet new friends that he can share music and movies with. He’s a David Hasselhoff fan, loves the Dodgers, and has practically run out of space on his hard drive from downloading scores of hip-hop, pop and jazz tunes. “I enjoy meeting all kinds of people,” said William, who is heavily involved in the Special Olympics as a promoter and an athlete, having competed in numerous sports over the years, including soccer, tennis and softball. He’s disarming and jovial, so much so that while in high school he was able to get along with people from all backgrounds, including those students who some considered to be gang members, Joanne Montgomery said. To hear William tell it, it

was as easy as just walking up to them and saying hello. His philosophy is to treat everyone with respect and show kindness. When his mother mentioned a story about a teen boy with Down syndrome who was reportedly kicked out of first class for being a “flight risk” earlier this month, he shakes his head and looks down at his hands. “That’s just wrong,” William said. “You shouldn’t treat people like that.” While he is aware that he is different from others because of his condition, William doesn’t let that affect him. That’s clear when watching him at work. Whether it’s cleaning displays or packing someone’s groceries, he takes pride in what he does and is always offering to help customers and make conversation. He’s also pretty talented when it comes to spotting celebrities who shop in his store. “He recognizes everybody,” said Lucia Ramirez, customer service team leader at the Whole Foods on Fifth Street in Downtown. “He always like ‘Hey, do you know who is here?’ I don’t see them, but he’s right on it.” Ramirez has worked with William for the past eight years and sees the happiness in his eyes. “He seems to always be smiling, he’s very helpful and very passionate,” she said. “When something new rolls out, whether it’s something on sale or only at this location, or maybe it’s a donation drive, he’ll let you know.” When William was diagnosed, it was difficult for Joanne to accept at first. She wasn’t an older woman, (the incidence of births of children with Down syndrome increases with the age of the mother), was in good health and didn’t experience any complications. “It’s just something that you don’t think will happen to you, and then it does,” she said.

“I was shocked. But we accepted it and decided to push forward. There have been ups and downs, for sure. It can be very challenging, but that’s just life.” Joanne made the decision early on to integrate William into schools and community groups like the YMCA so that he could socialize and make friends. From a progressive pre-school to Samohi, William has always learned alongside those without Down syndrome and has flourished. The Montgomerys took advantage of services that helped William set up his own apartment, balance his checkbook and pay bills, something which he still finds difficult but he’s working on it. The National Down Syndrome Society is fighting to make sure that people like William can access those services. The organization is lobbying for the passage of the ABLE (Achieve a Better Life Experience) Act, which will allow families to save money for their disabled children without penalty. “Right now if you have Down syndrome and you have too much money saved, you don’t qualify for certain benefits, which is really a problem. With all the advancements in medical care, people are living longer and legislation hasn’t quite caught up.” William cannot work full-time at Whole Foods, even though he would like to, because he would make too much money to qualify for help, Joanne said. “I really do consider William to be a part of this new generation, this first generation of people with Down syndrome who have been allowed to play a role in society, to be contributors and to be accepted.” While she’s happy William is living on his own, it’s clear that a mother’s instinct has not faded. Joanne can’t help but worry about

MONTGOMERY

her son, but William admits he likes the attention. The two act like best friends, which is fitting since she was William’s first, and the list continues to grow. “You just have to enjoy life,” William said when asked about what keeps him going. “You have to stay positive and be nice to people.” Simple, but true.

Obama responds to Romney’s tough talk on Mideast JOSH LEDERMAN & STEVE PEOPLES Associated Press

WASHINGTON President Barack Obama, defending his foreign policy record at a time of anti-American rage in the Muslim world, fired back at suggestions from Republican Mitt Romney that the president has been weak with allies and enemies alike. In an interview airing the night before Obama meets with other world leaders at the United Nations, the president said, “If Gov. Romney is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so.” It was Obama’s most direct rebuttal yet to persistent skepticism by his White House rival on his handling of an unraveling situation in the Middle East. Romney has charged the U.S. stance has been marred by miscalculations, mixed messages and appeasement. As far back as May, Romney was condemning Obama’s response to unrest in Syria, dubbing it a “policy of paralysis” and calling for more assertive measures, such as arming the opposition to Syrian President Bashar Assad. As deadly antiAmerican protests erupted earlier this month in Libya and elsewhere, Romney sought to undercut what polling shows is a significant foreign policy edge for Obama by calling the president’s handling of the situation “disgraceful” and decrying a lack of U.S. leadership in the region. In a companion interview to Obama’s appearance on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Romney broadened his reproach to include Israel, criticizing Obama’s failure to meet with the U.S. ally’s head of state, Benjamin Netanyahu, during the annual U.N. gathering. Romney called it a mistake that “sends a message throughout the Middle East that somehow we distance ourselves from our friends.” The White House has said scheduling precluded a meeting between the two leaders, who won’t be in New York at the same time. With the final six weeks of a hard-fought election

hanging over the U.N. summit, Obama has opted out of face-to-face meetings with any of his counterparts — not just Netanyahu — during his compressed U.N. visit. But Obama pushed back on the notion that he feels pressure from Netanyahu, dismissing as noise the Israeli leader’s calls for the U.S. to lay out a “red line” that Iran’s nuclear program mustn’t cross to avoid American military intervention. “When it comes to our national security decisions, any pressure that I feel is simply to do what’s right for the American people,” Obama said. “And I am going to block out any noise that’s out there. “ In a wide-ranging interview conducted the day after U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens was killed in an attack on Benghazi, Obama defended his foreign policy successes, noting he’d followed through on a commitment to end the war in Iraq and had nabbed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden. He also waxed optimistic that winning a second term would give him a mandate to overcome obstructionism from congressional Republicans whose No. 1 goal, he said, has been to prevent his re-election. “My expectation is, my hope is that that’s no longer their number one priority,” Obama said. “I’m hoping that after the smoke clears and the election season’s over that that spirit of cooperation comes more to the fore.” Romney, in an interview conducted last week, sought to deflect attention from his running mate, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, over their differences in Medicare policy: “I’m the guy running for president, not him.” While reaffirming his commitment to lowering all income tax rates by 20 percent, Romney expressed no unease about his refusal to offer specifics, such as which loopholes and deductions he’d eliminate to pay for the cuts. “The devil’s in the details. The angel is in the policy, which is creating more jobs,” Romney said, adding that he doesn’t want to see overall government revenue reduced.

Addressing the seemingly unshakable charge of flip-flopping on policy issues, Romney pointed the finger at Obama, noting his changes of heart on gay marriage and military tribunals for terrorism suspects. “Have I found some things I thought would be effective turned out not to be effective? Absolutely,” Romney said. “You don’t learn from experience, you don’t learn from your mistakes —why, you know, you ought to be fired.” The series of interviews also offered glimpses into both candidates’ personal habits, including their late-night routines. Romney said his nightly prayer is a time to connect both with the divine and with his own thoughts, and said he asks God mainly for wisdom and understanding. Obama, describing himself as “a night guy,” said that after first lady Michelle Obama and their daughters retire around 10 p.m., he hunkers down for reading, writing and occasionally a moment alone on the Truman Balcony, with the Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial in view. “Those are moments of reflection that, you know, help gird you for the next challenge and the next day,” Obama said. The “60 Minutes” interviews came as Romney’s campaign strove to turn the page on a week of public stumbles and Republican hand-wringing, promising a redoubled effort in the most competitive states to undercut Obama’s economic record as voters tune in for the final six weeks of a deadlocked race. A secretly recorded video released last Monday showed Romney writing off his prospects for winning over the almost half of Americans who he said pay no taxes, are dependent upon government and see themselves as victims dominated the week. Ahead of an evening campaign stop at a Denver-area high school Sunday, Romney huddled with senior advisers in Los Angeles to rehearse for the three upcoming presidential debates, which his aides see as the SEE ELECTION PAGE 13

Amid mounting pressure to spend less time raising money and more time explaining his plans to voters, Romney was refocusing his schedule on the most competitive states. After Colorado, Romney was to begin a three-day bus tour in Ohio on Monday followed by a stop in Virginia — states that Obama won in 2008 but that Republicans

claimed four years earlier. While national polls remain tight, polls in several of the most closely watched states, including Colorado, suggest Obama has opened narrow leads. Obama won Colorado by 9 points four years ago, but the state went to a Republican in the previous three presidential elections. Obama took a rare weekend break from the campaigning ahead of his U.N. address Tuesday, but dispatched top allies to the Sunday talk shows to try to keep Romney’s missteps alive in the minds of a dwindling cadre of undecided voters.

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

Although every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the winning number information, mistakes can occur. In the event of any discrepancies, California State laws and California Lottery regulations will prevail.

■ And What Were Y-o-u Doing at Age 14? Among the students featured in Popular Science's September list of young inventors was Fabian Fernandez-Han, 14, of Conroe, Texas, who invented a bicycle that, when pedaled, also desalinates seawater (via reverse osmosis) from replaceable 15-gallon canisters. One hour of pedaling produces 20 gallons of drinkable water. Jack Andraka, 15, from Maryland, created a test for pancreatic cancer that is demonstrably much faster and more accurate than current diagnostics (using carbon nanotubes that can be specially activated by applications of the signature pancreatic-cancer protein, Mesothelin). ■ School officials in Grand Island, Neb., told Hunter Spanjer that the way he signs his name violates the schools' anti-weapons policy and that he'll have to abandon it. Hunter is 3 1/2 years old, deaf, fluent in the language Signing Exact English, and uses a hand flourish as his unique signature (registered with SEE), except that officials say the flourish looks like Hunter is threatening with a weapon. At press time, Hunter's parents were still negotiating with officials.
