Judge Paul E. Zellerbach was admonished by California’s judicial agency in August for behavior in October 2004, when he left a jury deliberating a murder charge in order to attend an Angels-Red Sox playoff game and declined to leave the game when notified that the jury had reached a verdict (forcing everyone to return the next day). Tammie Lee Doss, 43, and two friends were charged with unlawful imprisonment in September in Athens, Ala., when Doss held her brother Randy at gunpoint and prayed for him. According to police, Tammie had confronted Randy, even firing a shot near his head to keep his attention, and urged him to redress his childhood mistreatment of her.

SMC students have ‘Magic to Do’ BY MICHAEL J. TITTINGER Daily Press Staff Writer

SANTA MONICA COLLEGE — The origami-like roof that sits atop the school’s new $17 million Theatre Arts Building seemed particularly fitting on Saturday night, as students opened the state-of-the-art facility to the public by sashaying through a Broadway musical revue that shifted form at an animated pace. The invitation-only show inside the performance hall’s spankingnew 264-seat theater was staged as both a coming-out party and fundraiser, as the college’s Foundation goes about trying to raise revenue to ensure the building and department’s upkeep. The 20,000 square-foot building was made possible by Santa Monica and Malibu voters in 2002, when they approved Measure U, a $160 million bond. Amid the three-year construction, the department held classes and staged plays in a temporary theater at SMC’s satellite campus at Santa Monica Airport. “Thank you for giving our stu-

As a resident of Sunset Park, Knauf said he was shocked by the reaction of his neighbors. “It’s right down the street from me, it’s basically my neighbors who

THIRD STREET PROMENADE — A Santa Monica police officer fired twice at a fleeing suspect who had allegedly taken part in the beating of a man just off the Third Street Promenade early Saturday. No one was shot in the incident, which led to three suspects being taken into custody by police. At around 12:25 a.m. Saturday morning, officers responded to the 300 block of Santa Monica Boulevard regarding a fight in progress. When officers arrived, they spotted three men beating a male victim. One of the assailants was kicking the victim in the head, while another suspect was then spotted attempting to stab a second victim with a knife, police said. As officers intervened, the three suspects — each later

marked the first chance members of the public, and potential benefactors, had to catch a glimpse of the impressive arts building, which by all accounts appeared to contain all the hallmarks of any professional theater space. Within the 1.06-acre site resides the main stage, a “black box” performance space, lobby shop, dressing rooms, classrooms, separate sound and lighting rooms, and makeup labs. While the night may have been geared towards raising money for the SMC Foundation — selling off naming rights for everything from individual theater chairs ($1,000 apiece) to the entire building ($1 million) — it wasn’t hard to discern who the building would really stand to serve over time, as excited students, still in costume, walked attendees through the building’s halls and performance spaces for post-show tours. “This building brings theater to life, and that’s what it’s all about,”

Back from the mean streets By Daily Press staff

The Westside Shelter and Hunger Coalition (WSHC) is giving it up for those who didn’t give up, even while living on the streets. The WSHC hosts its 11th annual “Celebrating Success: Changing Lives and Revitalizing Our Communities” breakfast on Friday, Oct. 6, at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in downtown Santa Monica. Ray Gonzales, executive producer and host of KTLA’s “Pacesetters,” will emcee the ceremony that honors 20 previously homeless individuals who have made extraordinary changes to leave behind life on the streets. Four honorees will represent the recipients by sharing their stories at the event. “I was on a dead-end street going nowhere, no future, no hope or direction in my life. Now I have a life that gets better every day,” says Henry Romero, one of this year’s honorees. Romero grew up in Central Los Angeles. Within six months of his mother’s death, when Romero was 15, he joined a gang and started a hard life of drug and alcohol abuse, landing in and out of prison for 35 years. In between were stints of homelessness and addiction. In the final 14 months of his last prison term, Romero entered a substance abuse program leading him to Phoenix House for further treatment and assistance with re-entry into society. He sought help finding employment from Chrysalis and now he is part owner/operator of a limo company, driving his own business sedan, paying his own rent, spending time with family and acting as a role model for his nieces and nephews. The Success Breakfast also pays tribute to a number of individuals, organizations and businesses that have supported the coalition’s member organizations in an exceptional manner. The 12 honorees this year include the Edelstein Family Charitable Foundation, Edward Keasbey, the Emerson Family Foundation, First Federal Bank of California, Housing Options for People to Excel (HOPE), the Junior League of Los Angeles, PricewaterhouseCoopers, RAND Corporation, the Santa Monica Farmers Market, Santa Monica Place, Starbucks and Working Wardrobes. Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky will be honored by the coalition as a whole with the 2006 Partnership Award in recognition of his commitment to homelessness issues.

PUBLIC DUMP IN SANTA MONICA

City Hall has recently expanded its high-speed wireless network to 11 locations within the city, adding sites such as the Santa Monica Pier, the Civic Auditorium and its own building’s lobby and courtyard, making it exceedingly easier for laptop users and Internet junkies to get their online fix. Several cities across the U.S. have pursued blanketing their entire region with “Wi-fi,” allowing residents either free access or charging a monthly access fee in efforts to recoup the costs of installing such a network. So this week, Q-Line wants to know: “Should Santa Monica render the entire city a “hotspot,” with Internet access for all? How should the costs be offset? Call (310) 285-8106 before Friday at 5 p.m. and we’ll print your responses in the weekend edition. Please try to limit your comments to a minute or less. It might help to think first about the wording of your response.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Report card clear up Editor:

I am writing to clear up some misinformation that was presented in your recent article and editorial on the Sustainable City Report Card. Kevin Herrera’s otherwise excellent article (SMDP, Sept. 25, page 1) noted that the report card measures “City Hall’s progress”in meeting the Sustainable City Plan goals. This is incorrect — the report card measures the entire community’s progress toward meeting the Sustainable City Plan goals, which were developed by the community during a 15 month process in 2001-2002 and adopted by City Council in 2003. A second piece of misinformation appeared in your editorial in Friday’s paper (SMDP, Sept. 29, page 4) which asserts that the report card is “an internal audit with city staffers grading themselves.” As noted above, it is the entire community that is being graded, not city staff or “City Hall.” And while it is true that city staff developed a first draft of the grades (with the assistance of an outside consultant), the final grades presented in the report card received outside review and approval by experts in the various Sustainable City Plan goal areas. The grades were developed based on a detailed analysis of indicator data (which can be found at http://santa-monica.org/epd/scpr/index.htm) conducted by city staff, outside consultants and outside experts, including representatives of the city’s task force on the environment and Sustainable City Task Force, and were independently reviewed and approved by the Sustainable City Task Force (a City Council-appointed group of non-city staff experts in the eight sustainable city goal areas) on Sept. 11, 2006. The purpose of the report card is to present a large amount of complex indicator data, as objectively as possible, in a format that is easy to understand by key decision-makers and residents alike. It was designed to help all community members celebrate our successes and, more importantly, to see where the challenges remain so that we can focus our resources on addressing them. I urge readers to take the time to look at the Sustainable City Plan, the indicator data and the report card at www.smepd.org and decide for themselves what the grades should be. And more importantly, take a look at those areas where we are not doing well and take some positive steps to help turn the grade around. Help to bring up that “C+” grade in Resource Conservation by installing compact fluorescent light bulbs in your home or office, or put a solar panel on your roof! The only way we will be able to get straight As is if all of us — businesses, residents, schools and institutions (like City Hall) — get involved in helping the community realize its vision of becoming a sustainable city.

No room for mental illness in Sunset Park Editor:

(This letter was originally addressed to the Santa Monica City Council.) I was not able to attend the City Council meeting tonight (Sept. 26). I have a 10 year-old daughter who expects me to be home on weeknights to help her with her homework and tuck her into bed. It is on her behalf, and the behalf of many other children like her, that I am writing this letter to you. I ask that you use your influence to dissuade Step Up On Second from establishing a proposed halfway house for 8-12 bipolar and schizophrenic young adults at 1826 Pearl St. Step Up On Second currently is in escrow to purchase this property, despite considerable community opposition. I feel this is not an appropriate location for the following reasons: • Young adults with these problems are unpredictable and prone to many problems to which children should not run the risk of being exposed. Step Up On Second maintains that these patients are not a danger to the community — as long as they stay on their treatment program. That’s a big “if,” and Step Up On Second admits there are no guarantees that these patients will not present a danger to the hundreds of elementary and middle school children who walk past this location on a daily basis. For most of these young kids, Pearl Street is their only route to and from John Adams Middle School, Grant Elementary School, the YWCA on 14th Street and Pico Boulevard, and the municipal swimming pool at SMC. • There are many other properties available on Pico or Ocean Park boulevards which would serve these young adults just as well and not impact our stable, child-centered residential community in the heart of Sunset Park. This halfway house will be a revolving door for Step Up’s ever-changing roster of clients, approximately 65 percent of whom come from outside Santa Monica, according to Step Up On Second’s own estimate. They will not be around long enough to become a part of our community. A commercial venture such as this simply does not belong in a residential neighborhood. Legally, there may be nothing that the city can do about this situation. But it is disingenuous to say that councilmembers have no influence over the actions of a city-supported non-profit organization. Voters will be looking very carefully at your response, because this could happen to anyone living next to or near an R2-zoned property. As the law currently stands, any organization can locate a halfway house for the mentally ill, the homeless, recovering alcoholics or even sex offenders, on any R2-zoned property: • Without requesting any sort of variance. • Without requiring any sort of public hearing. • Without notifying nearby residents, even if living next-door. • By evicting current residents, even if in rent-controlled apartments on the properties. This is not right. Are you going to let it happen without any further discussion, just because it’s for a “good cause?” We all have rights here. Yes, 8-12 mentally ill clients have a right to a place to live, even if most of them do not even come from Santa Monica. But so do the 2,500 school children — Santa Monica’s children — whose young lives could be irrevocably changed by one regrettable incident. Step Up On Second does great work. I am not against the organization or its clients — my own sister is schizophrenic. I simply feel that this location is not an appropriate place to carry on Step Up’s good work. Phil Harnage Santa Monica

Social services: When is there enough help? MY WRITE BY BILL BAUER

In the never-ending quest to bring more social services to Santa Monica, 1826 Pearl St. has become the latest cause celebre. It’s a single-family, four-bedroom bungalow with two one-bedroom apartments over garages at the rear of a property, which is directly across from Santa Monica College and a block or so east of John Adams Middle School in Sunset Park. Step Up on Second plans to acquire the property for a transitional living facility for young adults, 18 to 28, suffering from the early stages of mental illness such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression. According to Step Up’s executive director, Tod Lipka, the program will service seven or eight young men and women already in existing Step Up programs such as the nearby Daniel’s Place, who’ve been referred by case workers as being ready for transitional housing opportunities. “The program will provide early treatment and support to keep these young adults from becoming homeless mentally ill on the streets of Santa Monica, Lipka said in a phone interview last week. “The program is a two-year to 26-month structured program for young adults to better manage their illnesses and to help them learn independent living skills such as cooking and managing a household,” he added. “Initially residents would live in the main house and ultimately ‘graduate’ to an even more independent living situation in an apartment in the back. Some are already students at SMC.” Clients would have to pass an intensive screening before entering the facility. Lipka stressed that there will be a professional, adult supervisor living on the property at all times and that none of the prospective residents will have a history of violent behavior. Nevertheless, neighbors are upset — seeing this as just another social service program being foisted on them in a neighborhood rife with homeless and/or mentally ill service centers catering to clients coming here from outside Santa Monica. But Lipka said most of the residents would be young adults who have families in Santa Monica and the Westside. “Very few are ‘homeless’ or young adults from outside the area,” Lipka told me.

City Hall is reviewing Step Up’s revised loan application for $456,000 to purchase the Pearl Street property. Step Up also will raise private money and seek other public funding to finish the project. A previous loan request for $1.7 million was declined by City Hall for technical reasons. Obviously, this is a worthy program. But there is the issue of a city already saturated with social service programs. Within a few blocks of 1826 Pearl St. is the Hirshorn Manor, which houses and services mentally ill clients and the Clare Foundation, which provides services to alcoholics. Add to that the number of low-income housing units and numerous other service programs, and it’s easy to see why neighbors feel besieged. Letter writers to this and other newspapers predict dire consequences if a hoard of mentally ill young adults are loosed on the neighborhood. I understand the concerns of those living around the proposed project, however Lipka assures me that nobody who poses any danger to the community whatsoever will be placed at 1826 Pearl St. Unfortunately, other letters to the media from supporters calling opponents “wildeyed,” “crazy,” “ignorant” and “mean spirited” are unacceptable. Abusive dialogue from abusive people harms the very cause they defend. I agree with neighbors that south Santa Monica already is a dumping ground and there’s probably too many social services. Although they’re all worthwhile, as is this project, when do you say enough is enough? One hard fact to ignore is that most of these services are funded by City Hall, which is why the homeless and mentally ill are here to begin with. There’s also the argument that as more and more properties are converted to nonprofit or social service uses, they’re removed from tax rolls. And taxpayers are continually subsidizing most of these programs, making all of us pay both ways. Proponents and opponents need to stop name-calling. Step Up must reach out to neighbors. Lipka’s suggestion of an ongoing joint committee of Step Up staffers and neighbors to calmly discuss and resolve issues is an excellent start. Step Up on Second will be hosting a second community forum on Thursday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. at Grant Elementary School. Those for and against the project are urged to attend.

Buzz is acutely aware he is taking his life in his hands when he cruises around town on his beach cruiser, but since driving his car in the traffic-clogged city is a worse option, he’d rather risk life and limb than let his frustration and stress levels soar. On any day, Buzz is concerned about the oblivious woman driver talking on her cell phone while applying her make-up, or the jerk bus driver who moves for no one and finds pleasure in running two-wheelers off the road. But one recent Friday evening was no typical bike riding day for Buzz. On his routine ride home from work, Buzz stopped at the light at Broadway and Lincoln Boulevard, heading east. Safely (or so he thought) positioned on the sidewalk, he pushed the crosswalk button and waited for the green light. Out of the corner of his eye with the iPod blaring Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition,” Buzz saw a severely retarded woman crossing Broadway in a motorized wheelchair. She was headed his way, so Buzz checked the space between his back tire and the sidewalk ramp. Believing she had enough room, Buzz looked straight ahead and continued to jam. But before he knew it, Buzz’s bike was being dragged from the back tire with him on it. Apparently, the woman couldn’t judge the space correctly and clipped Buzz’s Huffy, dragging it at least 15 feet. With brand new stainless steel flatware his mother had sent in the front bike basket, it was only moments later that they were spread all over the sidewalk. By the time Buzz knew what was happening, the woman’s wheelchair had to come to a stop. After ripping off his iPod, Buzz realized the woman’s aide was

screaming at the poor woman, “I told you to look where you were going! How many times are you going to do this?” As Buzz attempted to bend back the fender to make his transportation operable again, he had to endure the verbal lashing the retarded woman was getting from the hired help — and all she could do was drool all over herself while her head rocked back and forth uncontrollably. Buzz rode away thinking there are worse things in life than being taken out by a wheelchair — like being in one and getting yelled at. But Buzz definitely crosses to the other side of the street now when he sees a wheelchair coming ... ... Getting his fast food fix for lunch a few days ago — chowing down numerous McNuggets with a hefty helping of sweet and sour sauce — Buzz realized he had over-ordered. Seeing multiple homeless people milling about the area, Buzz decided to offer his tasty chicken-flavored meat thingys to a man sitting near the exit. “No thanks,” the homeless gent replied. “I’m a vegetarian.” Seems beggars can be choosers... ... While sipping on some Harp, and some more Harps, with friends in the outdoor patio of the Britannia Pub, Buzz noticed what appeared to be a homeless bicyclist being frisked by some of Santa Monica’s finest. Buzz watched from across Santa Monica Boulevard as the officers put on their blue rubber gloves and dug into the suspect’s pocket. That’s when a beefy K-9 cop in shorts rolled up with a Starbucks cup in hand. As he stood nearby chatting with his colleagues, a young, attractive Asian tourist walked by with her camera and began to snap a few photos. Always looking to make visitors feel at home, two of the cops, including the one with the coffee, decided to pose with the young lady for a picture. Following the photo session, the officers wrote the bicyclist a citation and sent him on his way. One officer showed his sharp-shooting skills when he took his rubber gloves, pulled them back like a rubber band, and sent them flying into a nearby trash can. “Nice shot,” Buzz yelled. All in a days work.

COMMUNITYPROFILES

Speaking out KNAUF, from page 1

are voicing this opposition,” he said. “This is how you keep people who have mental illness from becoming homeless and get them to become productive members of society. And here’s my community saying, ‘we don’t want you here.’ It’s so unbelievably shortsighted to me.” Knauf said he plans to bring the issue to the attention of the Disabilities Commission and make it a future item on its agenda. “I’m speaking out wherever I can on this issue to raise awareness and suppress the knee-jerk fear of certain community members,” he said. “It’s fun. I enjoy it. It’s great to have that kind of cause.” It is not just his personal interest in the cause, but his physical proximity to the issue that has Knauf excited. “If this was north of Montana, I’d probably be involved to some extent, but not to the extent I am because it’s in Sunset Park,” he said. A MIND FOR POLITICS

Knauf said he was always interested in politics and government, a passion that took him to Washington, DC after he graduated from UCLA in 1991. He worked there for two years before returning to the West Coast to attend law school at USC. “In the first year of law school, with this kind of government-political bent, I discovered something called public interest law,” he said. “I was thinking, ‘this is the greatest area of law ever, where you get to be a lawyer and argue cases that are truly meaningful for the community.’ And so I fell in love with that.” Knauf worked for the legal aid organization Bet Tzedek in Los Angeles for two years, and then for what is now called the Disability Legal Rights Center for more than four years. Working in disability law meant that he had to take a crash course in issues affecting people with disabilities. “I did trainings. I met the community. I just learned about all types of different

stereotypes and perceptions that were untrue,” he said. While working for the Disability Legal Rights Center, Knauf lived in Santa Monica and, through work, met his wife, Leanna, also an attorney. They lived in her condo on 11th Street until they decided to buy a house — and Knauf decided to change jobs. “I was getting married,” Knauf said. “And my wife and I realized that we really loved Santa Monica and we really want to live here and so we thought the best move for me was to move from the non-profit world to the for-profit world.” In private practice, Knauf worked for a firm that primarily represented school districts in special education issues. He learned about special education law and tried to resolve disputes between parents and the district about services provided for children. “It’s kind of sad,” he said. “I know from the district perspective, if they had all the money in the world, they would love to give every kid every service that they could possibly give the kid.” Knauf worked at the firm for three years before opening his own practice, Knauf Associates, at the beginning of this year to spend more time with his daughter Maya, who celebrated her first birthday last Monday. Sitting in his home office, Knauf can appreciate that Santa Monica has been kind to his family. “Leanna and I have planted our roots in Santa Monica,” he said. “Il Forno’s our favorite restaurant. It’s a great community kind of local restaurant. You see the same people there over and over again ... We love Clover Park.” Knauf works from home and walks to the park with Maya every morning. “It’s great that I can now basically wake up and work if I need to,” he said. “I can walk my daughter to the park, hand her off to my wife who takes her in [to daycare], and I just pop in and start working at home.” Add to that the Dodgers’ playoff run and the Bruins’ performance in last year’s NCAA basketball tournament, and it’s clear why Knauf is so content with his life. “I’m very happy and I’m very lucky,” he said.

PASSIONATE COMMUNITY INVOLVMENT

Although he is quite happy with his own luck, he remains dedicated to helping others who are not as fortunate. As chair of the Disabilities Commission, Knauf works to make the city more friendly, accessible and affordable for people with disabilities. He was there at the inception of the Disabilities Commission seven years ago. “I thought, this would be a great community thing to get involved in, and it really became a passion,” Knauf said. Initially, Knauf said, the city was skeptical about the need for a disabilities commission. “I think the organizers had a credibility problem and I saw my role as to bring in some credibility to this issue,” he said. “Other cities across the country have commissions. There’s no reason why Santa Monica shouldn’t. And you had an active, vocal community that wanted this kind of representation and this forum to bring its issues. It was perfect.” Knauf got involved and brought his years of experience as a disabilities’ rights and special education lawyer to the aid of the commission’s founding members. “Fortunately, the city saw the light and agreed to establish a task force,” Knauf said. The task force advised the city to create a commission, but the council was not yet prepared to take that step. Instead, it formed a committee. Knauf was appointed to serve on the committee, which came up with another set of recommendations, one of which was the formation of a commission. Finally, two years after the initial meeting, the Disabilities Commission was established. In July, Knauf was appointed chair of the commission, which is now in its fifth year. He said he hopes to put his “thumbprint” on the commission and “build on what we’ve already accomplished.” “The other night, I accepted a proclamation from the City Council declaring October to be Disabilities Awareness Month,” he said. “I was thinking, ‘remember when you opposed us? Or you weren’t so sure that we were a good idea?’” Now, Knauf said, the council has told the commissioners that they’re a model commission, that they are active and productive, “the

best, or one of the best, commissions in the city.” “It’s because we are passionate and we care a lot about our community and we want the city to do better for our community,” he said. In Knauf ’s year as chair, he plans to take on a few major goals. One is to gain more public awareness for the commission and for disabilities issues generally. As part of that effort, the organization will hold its “First Annual Disability Awareness Month Celebration” at the Santa Monica public library on Oct. 28. The event will feature speakers and an art show by artists with disabilities, as well as a dramatic performance by a woman who became a paraplegic after she fell from a tree on a hiking trip. At the event, the commission will also recognize Santa Monica High School’s Circle of Friends program for its contribution to people with disabilities. The group matches students with various kinds of disabilities with their peers to increase socialization and inclusion in the community to fight the natural isolation that students with disabilities often face, especially in high school. “It’s a tremendously successful program,” Knauf said. “They’re growing and they’re trying to replicate it at other school districts ... We’re very happy to honor them with our first award.” Knauf wants to increase public input to the commission, have the city develop a program to increase employment of people with disabilities, and improve the “visitability” — or accessibility — of private homes. “That’s what’s so appealing to this area of law — it’s a civil rights movement,” Knauf said. “We’re not asking for anything other than an equal opportunity to participate. Get your stereotypes out of the way and look at me for my abilities and what I can do and bring to you and your organization and your community. And in order for that to happen, well, the sidewalks need to have curb-ramps and you can’t have steps leading up to every store and every restaurant.” Knauf vows that he won’t rest until everyone gets the opportunity to be just as happy with their lives as he is.

Schwarzenegger tries to appeal to right and left MICHAEL R. BLOOD AP Political Writer

LOS ANGELES — In celebrity-studded events this week, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger conspicuously advertised his moderate Republican credentials, signing Democratic bills to combat global warming and withdraw state investments from companies in war-torn Sudan. “Democrats and Republicans can work together,” the governor told an audience in Malibu, trumpeting a central plank of his reelection drive. But a less-visible promotion was taking place, almost simultaneously. In a Republican-sponsored advertisement being distributed by telephone, Schwarzenegger is portrayed as tough and resolute on illegal immigration — an issue with potent appeal among Republican conservatives. His Democratic opponent, Phil Angelides, is depicted as a softy. “It is critical that we protect our borders, which is why Governor Schwarzenegger vetoed a bill that would have given drivers licenses to illegal immigrants,” a narrator says in an urgent voice in the brief, recorded spot. “Governor Schwarzenegger sent over 1,000 National Guard troops to protect our border, but Phil Angelides says he will pull those troops off the border,” the ad says. The ad never mentions the governor was initially hesitant to deploy the troops, or that

he later rejected a Bush administration request to send 1,500 more to the border. The ad underscores a political reality for the actor-governor as he seeks a second term — in a state with a Democratic tilt, he is trying to appeal to independents and Democrats at the same time he needs to motivate Republicans and other conservative-leaning voters. Angelides consultant Bill Carrick accused the governor of “pandering to his political base with targeted phone calls while he is masquerading as — almost pretending to be — a Democrat.” “He's continually changing his positions,” Carrick said. But Schwarzenegger's campaign manager, Steve Schmidt, said the calls use facts to point out the “tremendous differences between Phil Angelides and Governor Schwarzenegger.” “We will continue to communicate to voters, through television advertising, volunteer phone calls ... all the way through Nov. 7,” Schmidt said. The state Republican Party ads, which end with a pitch to mail in a ballot for Schwarzenegger, are part of a major, election-turnout drive being run by the governor's campaign and the state GOP. Campaign and party officials use computerized data to identify receptive voters, who then receive carefully crafted ad pitches, much the way retail firms identify and market goods to consumers.

Victim’s son identifies shooter A suspect in a 2002 shooting death in Mexico was arrested after the victim’s son saw him in a local restaurant, authorities said. Rene Perez Carrion was wanted by Mexican authorities in connection with the slaying of Everado Ramirez Pomposo, who served as a police commander in the state of Pueblo. Pomposo was shot when he was called to a party whose host complained that some of the guests were drunk and rowdy, his son, Evarado Duron Ramirez, said Wednesday. Ramirez called police after seeing Carrion at a restaurant on Sunday, officials said. Police detained Carrion, 31, and arrested him after learning that Mexican authorities had issued an arrest warrant for him, officials said. He was later transferred to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents after it was determined he was in the United States illegally, said ICE agent David Wales. PASADENA

Suing over stripping The attorney representing a businessman who wants to open a strip club near a residential area sued the city after the venue’s business application was not processed. Roger Diamond filed a lawsuit Thursday accusing the city of violating his client’s First Amendment right to free expression when it imposed a moratorium on licensing adult businesses earlier this month. Diamond said the freeze was put in place only to stop his client’s proposed club from opening. City officials could not be reached for comment Friday, as municipal offices were closed for the day.

The Orange Line expands Transit officials voted to add six miles to the San Fernando Valley’s Orange Line busway, which has exceeded ridership projections since it opened last fall. Under the plan unanimously approved Thursday by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority board, the busway running now running between North Hollywood and Woodland Hills will be extended to Chatsworth. The expansion will cost $135 million and should be completed in 2012. “We have an opportunity to do something to build on the Orange Line’s success,” said county Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, an MTA board member. The board was under pressure to act quickly in approving the busway or risk losing $98 million in state funds that must be allocated by Jan. 1, 2009, officials said.

FDA lifts buyer ban on most fresh spinach BY LISA LEFF Associated Press Writer

SAN FRANCISCO — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration lifted its 2-week-old consumer warning on most fresh spinach Friday, revising the alert to say it now covers only specific brands packaged on certain dates. A week ago, the FDA said it was safe to eat spinach grown anywhere outside of three Salinas Valley counties, and some stores began restocking. Dr. David Acheson, chief medical officer of the agency’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, said Friday that only spinach that already had been recalled shouldn’t be eaten. Other spinach “is as safe as it was before this event,” Acheson said. The revision means the spinach warning now applies only to spinach recalled earlier this month by Natural Selection Foods of San Juan Bautista and four other companies that it supplied, said Kevin Reilly, deputy director of prevention services for the California health department. River Ranch Fresh Foods of Salinas, Pacific Coast Fruit Co. of Portland, Ore, S.T. Produce of Seattle,

and RLB Food Distributors of West Caldwell, N.J. recalled products that contained spinach supplied by Natural Selection. Natural Selection’s recall covered 34 brands it packaged bearing “Best if Used By” dates of Aug. 17 through Oct. 1 — this Sunday. Reilly said the recall and the expiration dates make it likely the tainted spinach that led to a nationwide E. coli outbreak has mostly worked its way out of the food supply chain. Natural Selection Foods and nine farms that supplied the company with spinach have been the focus of inspectors searching for the source of the E. coli outbreak that has sickened 187 people in 26 states, with one confirmed death. Nine packages of Dole baby spinach, one of the brands Natural Selection bagged, have tested positive for E. coli. The FDA action came on the same day that California growers and produce processors presented preliminary food safety guidelines the agency set as a prerequisite for removing its spinach warning after the E. coli outbreak. But state health officials said during a conference call with reporters Friday afternoon that the FDA’s decision to tell consumers they could resume eating all but a very limited supply of spinach was unrelated to the indus-

Raw organic milk that sickened California children now clean By the Associated Press

FRESNO, Calif. — State officials announced on Friday that an investigation of a raw milk dairy whose product had been recalled showed the company’s facilities were clean, allowing them to market milk again. “Zero pathogens have been found in the state of California linked to organic dairy,” said Mark McAfee, owner of Organic Pastures Dairy. “We test our milk all the time, we agree that raw milk from factory farms should not be consumed, but we have grass-fed cows whose milk we can get test results from in a matter of hours.” Since no contamination was found, investigators have lifted the quarantine, said Steve Lyle with the California Department of Food and Agriculture. The state veterinarian decided to recall

milk from the Fresno-based company on Sept. 21 after it was linked to E. coli contamination that sent three children in San Bernardino, Riverside and San Diego counties to the hospital. But nothing suspicious was found during an investigation of the dairy this week. Two children remained hospitalized Friday. Most milk sold in grocery stores is pasteurized, but raw dairy products may contain disease-causing microorganisms. Infants, the elderly, pregnant women and those with weak immune systems are especially vulnerable, officials said. Raw dairy products are outlawed in many states.

try blueprint submitted earlier in the day. “Our recommendation is that the public should not consume the spinach specifically cited in the recall,” Reilly said. “As I’ve said pretty persistently, there are some concerns about systemic contamination in the Salinas Valley and it’s really critical the farms, the ranchers, implement good agricultural practices routinely and on every farm, every day.” Even as it reassured consumers that it’s OK to eat spinach, the FDA once again told California farmers Friday to get serious about fighting E. coli in their fields. The recent nationwide outbreak is the

20th connected to leafy green vegetables — lettuce or spinach — since 1995, half of them linked to farms in central California’s Salinas Valley. Investigators don’t yet know how the greens linked to the current outbreak became tainted, and may never know for sure, Acheson said. Nevertheless, news of the eased restrictions were welcomed by California’s agriculture industry. “This means everyone should go out and eat spinach tonight — a lot of it,” said Rep. Sam Farr, a California Democrat who represents the Salinas Valley. ROP_K_# 99545113.ad

Object found at the tip of the Aleutian chain may be lost sub BY JEANNETTE J. LEE Associated Press Writer

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Underwater sonar images of a black shape against a background of grainy monochrome are safely stored on two computer hard drives at Bruce Abele’s home in Newton, Mass. Blurred by odd shadows and striations, the silhouettes are the biggest clues in more than 60 years to the fate of his father’s World War II submarine, the USS Grunion, which sank nearly 5,000 miles west of Massachusetts, near the obscure islands at the tip of Alaska’s Aleutian chain. For decades, relatives of the Grunion’s 70 lost crewmen had no information beyond fragmented U.S. Navy records, and a few rumors, about where and why the sub went down. They knew the Grunion had sunk two Japanese submarine chasers and heavily damaged a third in July 1942 near Kiska, one of two Aleutian islands occupied by the Japanese. They knew her last official radio message to the sub base at Dutch Harbor, on July 30, 1942, described heavy enemy activity at Kiska Harbor. They knew she still had 10 of her 24 torpedoes during that communication. They knew Dutch Harbor responded with an order to return to the base, but they don’t know if Grunion ever received it. Until a few years ago, the clues were too sparse to justify a search, said Abele, whose father, Mannert Abele, was the Grunion’s commander. “We really didn’t do anything about it because there was nothing, no information,” Abele said. “What were we going to do?” Abele and his two brothers all married and had children. Bruce, the oldest, started working in computers in the late 1950s and later invested in Boston-area real estate. Brad, the middle son, owned a management recruiting business and John helped found the multibillion dollar medical equipment company Boston Scientific Corp. Four years ago, a man who had heard about the Grunion’s disappearance e-mailed Bruce the links to several Grunion Web sites. One site held an entirely new clue, a note from a Japanese model ship builder who said he thought he knew what had happened to the Grunion. John Abele contacted the man, Yutaka Iwasaki, who translated and sent him a report written in the 1960s by a Japanese military officer who served in the Aleutians. A maritime magazine had recently reprinted the report. It described a confrontation between a U.S. submarine and the officer’s freighter, the Kano Maru, on July 31, 1942, about 10 miles northeast of Kiska — the Grunion’s patrol area. The sub dispatched six or seven torpedoes. All but one bounced off the boat without exploding, or missed, the officer wrote, although the hit knocked out his engines and communications. He said he returned fire with an 8-centimeter deck gun, and believed he had sunk the sub. Japanese troops took over Kiska and Attu in early June 1942, just as the Allies were winning the battle of Midway. The U.S. Navy was shoring up its defenses in the central Pacific, but managed to assign more than a dozen submarines to the waters around Kiska at the end of the month, according to declassified Navy orders. The Abeles began investigating the identity of the sub in the Kano Maru officer’s report. They contacted Robert Ballard, discoverer of the Titanic. He declined to participate in a search, but briefed the Abeles on the complications of searching for deep-sea wrecks. Geological formations sometimes conceal a vessel; it could be perched precariously on an undersea cliff; the water pressure and landing impact could have broken the Grunion into small pieces, making it harder to find. They also hired a marine survey firm, Williamson and Associates, for an expedition in August to Kiska. The Seattlebased company focuses on mapping ocean and river bottoms for oil and cable companies, government agencies and academic institutions and, occasionally, explores for wrecks. Williamson at first told the Abeles that surveying the tip

of the Aleutian archipelago would be too expensive, Bruce Abele said, but after six months of negotiating, the firm agreed to send sonar technicians and equipment aboard a Bering Sea crab boat to the frigid waters licking the base of Kiska volcano. The U.S. Navy, citing lack of resources, is not involved in the search and the Abeles prefer to keep the cost to themselves. The Aquila, carrying more than a dozen crew members and sonar surveyors, set out from Dutch Harbor on Aug. 6, said Pete Lowney, a family friend from Newton who joined the crab fishing fleet in Dutch Harbor more than a decade ago. Lowney has fished king and snow crab for years under the Aquila’s captain, Kale Garcia. The conical volcanoes of the far western Aleutians seem to drop straight into the sea. Even in summer, rain, fog and vicious winds envelop the tiny islands. Near the end of July 1943, for instance, the fog clung so thick around Kiska that 5,183 Japanese troops and civilians evacuated from the harbor without drawing fire from any of the surrounding U.S. battleships. The military realized a distant three weeks later that Kiska was deserted, but only after 35,000 Allied troops had spent eight days searching the fogcloaked island, with 24 killed by friendly fire, according to the National Park Service. For more than two weeks, the Aquila carefully towed a sonar cable from east to west and back again inside a 240square-mile grid that the survey team had plotted using information from naval archives and the Kano Maru officer’s account. The crew worked in shifts to keep the search going 24 hours a day, Lowney said. Sonar images can deceive even those who interpret them for a living. Elongated boulders look like submarines; outcrops resemble ship’s prows. “It’s a rocky seascape,” said Art Wright, survey manager for Williamson. “We went over the areas several times to differentiate between rock and ship and look at things from three to four different aspects.” They looked first for the Japanese destroyer Arare, sunk by the U.S. submarine Growler, to test the sonar and see what a known wreck would look like against the seafloor. The sonar captured shapes that appeared to be two halves of the Arare, Wright said. There were several false “eureka” moments, Lowney said. "We put down the sonar and I thought I saw two destroyers and got excited,” he said ruefully. “After that point, I stopped jumping to conclusions.” In mid-August, the sonar picked up a 290-foot-long object with the sharp angles and jutting shadows of something man-made wedged into a terrace on the steep underwater slope of the volcano. The Grunion, however, was 312 feet long. The Williamson team believes the bow may have plowed beneath a mat of thick sediment, hence the apparent shortage of about 20 feet. Skid marks show the vessel slid to rest about 1,000 meters from the surface, Wright said. Over the years, earthquakes along the tectonic subduction zone could have piled on more debris, he said. Wright, a retired Navy captain who has worked with Williamson since 1986, is 95 percent sure the shadowy images are those of the vanished sub. The Grunion is the only known sunken vessel in the area and the sonar captured the distinct outline of a submarine conning tower, he said. “If our target is not the Grunion, where is she?”Wright said. The Abeles remain circumspect about the find, saying they need more proof of the vessel’s identity. “Although it’s very encouraging at the moment, it’s dangerous to say, ‘Absolutely, we have it,"’ Bruce Abele said in August during a brief stop in Anchorage after the three met the crew of the Aquila on Adak, 275 miles east of Kiska. But they have enough faith in the wreck to send out a second expedition next summer, this time with a remote-controlled underwater camera to identify the vessel and try to reconstruct her sinking.

Associated Press Writer

SEATTLE — When Dr. LeeAnna Muzquiz was growing up on the Flathead Indian Reservation in northwestern Montana, doctors seemed to come and go. She saw her dad die in his 40s of a heart attack and other family members suffer deal with chronic health problems without the benefit of consistent, quality medical care. A member of the Salish and Kootenai tribes, Muzquiz decided as a kid she wanted to grow up and do something to help her people. “That was my plan: to go to medical school and then try to make health care better for the people here on the reservation,” said Muzquiz, 35, who lives in Polson and practices in Ronan, Mont. A 2003 graduate of the regional medical school program of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho based at the University of Washington in Seattle, Muzquiz now works for the tribes as a primary care physician. The program’s goal is to train primary care doctors and send them back to work in small towns and rural areas in the five states. Students are offered incentives to participate, such as in-state tuition for the University of Washington. In Wyoming and Alaska, students must return to the state for a few years after their residency or repay some of the money the state invested in their education. Jonathan Olson, 25, a fourth year medical student from Green River, Wyo., said he has every intention of returning to the state when he finishes his residency, but wishes he could go to Montana instead. “The place I really fell in love with was Whitefish, Mont.,” said Olson, who made sure he worked in every state in the region during medical rotations in his third year. “A combination of really good medicine, I love the doctors and the area is just spectacular,” Olson said. “It’s kind of a small town, but it’s a cosmopolitan small town.” The program currently accepts up to 120 medical students each year from Washington, 20 from Montana, 18 from Idaho, 10 from Alaska and 10 from Wyoming, though each of the states has been offered a chance to underwrite more students within the next few years. Since it began in 1972, the program has graduated more than 6,500 doctors. About 750 to 775 WWAMI medical students are enrolled in the four-year program at any one time. Many students in the program choose not to return to their home states. Wyoming’s insistence that students return — referred to as “indentured servitude” by some former students — prompts 83 percent of graduates to return, said Dr. Doug Schaad, an administrator who has tracked program statistics since its inception. Medical schools nationally return about 40 percent to 42 percent of their students to their home states to practice, said Dr. Tom Norris, head of the program. "It’s provided a really cost-effective medical program for five states, and very high quality education for students across the Northwest,” Norris said. In Alaska, 50 percent return. Graduates from other WWAMI states, equivalent to 17 percent of the number of Alaska graduates, choose to practice in Alaska, offsetting some of the Alaska graduates who go elsewhere. In Idaho, the return rate is 46 percent, or 64 percent when students from other states in the region are included. In Montana, 39 percent of residents return, but the number jumps to 52 percent when other states are included. Fifty-two percent of Washington medical students stay in their home state to practice. When students from the other states are added, Washington gets a 61 percent return. Muzquiz did her residency in Seattle at the Indian Health Board because she wanted to better prepare for her work on the reservation and that was the only residency in the country that focused on American Indians. “I didn’t stay in Seattle primarily because my goal from the get go was to come home and practice and try to make a difference here,” she said. “Although I had some offers to stay in Seattle, I felt obligated to myself.”

A promising future THEATRE ARTS, from page 1

said Jessica Gunson, a theater arts student who played Cinderella’s stepmother for segments from the show “Into the Woods.” “The seats are new, everything’s new. It makes people want to come to the shows, and that will only make the program so much more successful. “When I first saw the stage, I couldn’t

wait to be on it.” Saturday’s show began with the number “Magic to Do” from the musical “Pippin,” a fitting opening for a theater with the promise of the future laid out before it. Students also belted out numbers from “Cabaret” and “Evita,” which is scheduled as the theater’s first housed production in October. The theatre complex, designed by the international architecture firm Leo A. Daly, replaces the former, overcrowded, 50-yearold facility that was originally built as a children’s theater in the 1950s. “The opening of this building marks an important milestone in the history of this college,” remarked SMC President Dr. Chui L. Tsang. “This beautiful facility will catapult our already outstanding theatre arts program to new heights.” The project marks the latest chapter in a storied department that counts Oscar-winner Dustin Hoffman, screen legend James Dean and Oscar-nominee Gloria Stuart (”Titanic”) among its alumni. But on Saturday, it was all about the future of the department and the performers that will take to the as-yet-to-be-scuffed stage in efforts to rise among the ranks of Hollywood and Broadway elite. “Just even the architecture of this building, it’s so awesome,” said Alex Edlefsen, a theatre arts student leading tours in his Dr. Seuss character costume. “This night, this building means a lot. It’s so official ... so cool.”

identified as a resident of Denver, Colo. — fled on foot. One man was arrested after a brief foot chase. A second suspect was located in the area and arrested without incident. The third suspect jumped into a vehicle parked nearby. An officer ordered the man to surrender, but he refused, prompting the officer to fire two shots at the suspect in an attempt to arrest him, according to police.

The suspect was not hit and drove away from the scene. He was arrested moments later by police. The suspects were identified as Steven Casados, 26, Louis Casados, 37, and 18year-old Anthony Vasquez. They were all booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. The victim was transported to an area hospital, where he was listed in serious condition with head trauma and abrasions. The investigation is on-going and is being handled by the Robbery-Homicide Unit.

Success on farms and ranches requires balance BY STACI MATLOCK Associated Press Writer

SANTA FE, N.M. — The Romeros and the Moons are bucking a national trend. They’re 40-something and younger, and making a living on their small-scale farms at a time when American agriculture is headed toward larger corporate farms with fewer producers, according to a recent U.S. Department of Labor report. In 2002, there were 1.9 million family or individually run farms, down more than 20,000 farms from 1997, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service. Family farms are finding relief in niche markets that involve horticulture, organic farming and small-scale operations that market directly to customers, the Labor Department report says. Those niches, an understanding of the traditional skills and new knowledge needed to run a successful operation, and a

deep love for life on the land are what drive the Romeros and the Moons. Matthew Romero, 48, operates three fields along the Rio Grande with help from his wife, Emily, 34, and one full-time worker. They grow year-round and harvest more than 30 kinds of produce. They are the largest producer selling at the Santa Fe Farmers Market, and he’s made a comfortable enough living to buy a farm in Dixon. Not bad for a nonfarmer who put down his chef’s hat and started harvesting fields barely six years ago. “It has a lot to do with independence, about being your own boss,” Matthew Romero said.“But you have to be very resourceful to do this for a living.” Romero said making every minute count is a key to success. He has made his watering system highly efficient with a combination of flood irrigation, drip irrigation and sprinklers. Romero said with the right plan, farmers can make a good

living in agriculture. “It is possible to grow $40,000 to $50,000 worth of vegetables on an acre of land,” he said. On top of Rowe Mesa, 20 miles down a dirt road and more than 60 miles from the nearest grocery store in Santa Fe, Michael and Dawn Moon are raising a family and trying to help a nonprofit organization build a wildlife-friendly cattle ranch. The ranch in San Miguel County is the Rowe Mesa Grassbank, run by the Quivira Coalition, a Santa Fe nonprofit founded by two Sierra Club members and a rancher. The group is devoted to proving good ranching is better for land and wildlife than driving ranchers out of business. The grass bank provides a place where public-land ranchers can bring their cattle while resting their grazing allotments. Michael Moon says money can be made in agriculture, and he opposes government subsidies to ranchers and farmers. “The reason people don’t make money is because they’re not farming or ranching smart,” Moon said.“They’re going into debt.”

Segway causes trouble for Chan Jackie Chan’s acrobatic stunts have made him one of the world’s most recognizable movie stars, but the actor revealed that mastering a Segway two-wheeled scooter can be tricky. Chan, preparing to kick off filming for the third installment of

the “Rush Hour” action comedy series with co-star Chris Tucker in Paris, wrote in a diary entry on his Web site Sunday that he shipped the scooters to Paris to conveniently get around the film set. “Everybody thinks it’s easy to drive a vehicle like this. Like rid-

ing a bicycle, one has to learn how to properly drive a Segway. Even when a person thinks they understand how to ride it, they may go too fast and get hurt,” Chan wrote. Chan also wrote that he thinks camera tests are unnecessary.

“American directors want to make sure that our coloring and costumes look right for the film, which I think is a good thing. Sometimes I think they seem to spend too much time on trying to get every detail right. In Chinese films, we just use our eyes to fig-

It was a big moment. She asked me if I was sure it was the right decision and she was really good about it,” Mower told the Daily Telegraph.

The show, which was named best new musical in this year’s Olivier awards, is one of London’s more popular theater destinations. Based on the Oscar-nominated film, it boasts a score by Elton John, who has said Billy’s story reminds him of his own childhood struggle to express his creativity. Mower, who has played the

role for 18 months, will give a final performance on Sunday, the paper reported. He is also giving up his place as a student at the Royal Ballet School in southwest London, where he was on a scholarship the Telegraph said was worth $52,000, in part because of criticism he received for quitting Billy Elliot. AP

As he worked his way to salsa stardom, Marc Anthony said he saw the tragic career of the Puerto Rican performer he plays in an upcoming movie as inspiration and a warning to avoid industry pitfalls. Anthony, who kicked off a concert tour in San Juan this weekend, said he felt a personal connection to Hector Lavoe, who was credited with bringing salsa to the United States and died in 1993 at age 46 following a struggle with drug addiction. “He painted this clear picture of what you could be if you put your mind to it, but how painful a life you could live if you made the wrong choices,” he said. The biopic “El Cantante,” which has Anthony starring opposite his wife, Jennifer Lopez, premiered this month at the Toronto Film Festival. It is expected to be released in North America next year. The film traces Lavoe’s rise from the Caribbean island to stardom in New York, where the sold-out concerts and best-selling albums of the 1970s give way to drug addiction and a strained marriage in the 1980s. Lopez, who co-produced the film, took on the project nearly five years ago when Lavoe’s widow approached her with a script and asked the pop star to consider playing her role. The husband-and-wife duo — who also collaborated on Lopez’s upcoming Spanishlanguage album, with Anthony as the producer — were expected to appear on stage together this weekend. AP
