Junior Rose Bowl team comes home BY ROB LAWRENCE Special to the Daily Press

SMC Members of the legendary 1958 Santa Monica College Corsair football team dusted off their Junior Rose Bowl Championship jackets to proudly wear while being inducted into the school’s Sports Hall of Fame during homecoming on Saturday. To kickoff their return, SMC faculty members gave the inductees a tour of a much different campus than the one they are used to. “I didn’t even recognize it. It’s a new campus to me. It is unbelievable how they have torn down so many buildings and

rebuilt,” former halfback Lloyd Winston said with a look of awe. “It’s a reflection on the community here. Everyone, I think, who’s intelligent, would love to live in a community that supports its educational institutions like these folks here do.” The cafeteria was nearly at its capacity once all of the players and their families had arrived. The players looked overwhelmed, with such a large turnout. Jack Silas, a member of the foundation board at SMC and former defensive halfback for the team was responsible for the gathering. “The turnout was good,” said Silas.“It’s nice that we can share this with our grandchildren.”

The players took their time reminiscing and sharing stories before they were presented with their plaques. Myles Sahlgren, who played defensive end, smiled as he recalled winning the Junior Rose Bowl against Northeastern Oklahoma A&M. “We partied for about a week straight,” he said. “What else could you do? We just had a good time.” Just prior to the big homecoming game, SMC head coach Robert Taylor welcomed the team back to the campus, and assured them that there would be a hard fought SEE SMC PAGE 11

Veteran represents college students BY MELODY HANATANI Daily Press Staff Writer

DOWNTOWN Cameron Henton awoke one morning to find a world changed. Much like the rest of the country, Henton sat glued to the television on Sept. 11, 2001, watching footage of the planes crashing into the Twin Towers and listening to analysts speak of a possible war. Henton had already decided years before to join the U.S. Marine Corps, but the fateful events of that day had confirmed what he would be doing in joining the armed forces. “It just gave me a sense of realization that I was actually going to be sent somewhere,” Henton said. “I wasn’t going to be on a boat going around the Pacific visiting different ports.” More than seven years and three tours in Iraq later, Henton has gone from protecting the American ideals of freedom to protecting the interests of Santa Monica College students. The 26-year-old veteran is currently the only student trustee on SMC’s Board of Trustees, juggling his studies and the responsibilities that come with representing his peers on the school’s governing body, serving as the voice of the students. He joined the Marines at the end of 2002, enlisting for the challenge, adventure and teamwork. “I had a hard enough time doing home-

Will Rogers gets a little healthier BY SABA HAMEDY Special to the Daily Press

WINDY DAY

Fabian Lewkowicz Fabian@FabianLewkowicz.com High winds kicked up sand and swayed trees on Santa Monica Beach on Sunday. Temperatures reached 68 degrees.

Gay marriage supporters march across state THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN DIEGO As many as 10,000 people took to the streets in San Diego and similar numbers marched in Los Angeles Saturday to protest passage of an anti-gay marriage ballot initiative, authorities said. Demonstrators began marching through central San Diego at noon, according to police Sgt. Diane Wendell. The event lasted about 90 minutes and was peaceful, with no arrests. The march in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles began at Saturday evening and lasted about four hours, said police Sgt. Jake Bushy. No incidents were reported as demonstrators

marched down Sunset Boulevard carrying signs and waving banners. The demonstrations were the largest of several marches that followed Tuesday’s passage of Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages and overturning the state Supreme Court decision that legalized such unions in May. A candlelight vigil in Laguna Beach Saturday evening drew about 1,000 people and police reported no incidents. On Friday, tensions flared at a vigil at Palm Springs City Hall when a supporter of the gay marriage ban carrying a plastic foam cross clashed with protesters, accord-

ing to The Desert Sun. The crowd ripped the cross from her hands and stomped on it. Police made no arrests. About 2,000 people gathered in Long Beach Friday night and there were three arrests. A thousand people also marched Friday in San Francisco. In Salt Lake City Friday night, a crowd of about 2,000 chanted “Separate church and state” and waved rainbow flags outside the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which encouraged its members to work to pass the amendment by volunteering their time and money for the campaign.

WILL ROGERS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL This local school is kicking chips, cookies and pizza aside to make room for heart-healthy foods like fresh salads, fruits and vegetables. Will Rogers Elementary School was one of 25 schools in the state that received a Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) grant of $26,100 to purchase nutritional food items from local Farmers’ Markets and distribute them on campus during lunch and snack breaks. The 2008 Farm Bill expanded this program to all 50 states due to its effectiveness in pilot schools and overwhelming bi-partisan support in Congress, according to United Fresh Produce Association (UFPA). UFPA, along with state leaders like California Secretary of Food and Agriculture A.G. Kawamura, and Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell, favors the addition of healthy foods in schools at a young age. They believe that such programs will help combat obesity in children. "This program will transform schools because it will increase kids’ fruit and vegetable intake and help them stop buying junk food,” UFPA nutritionist Dr. Lorelei DiSogra said. DiSogra is one of the many people who has been working for the past six years with UFPA to expand FFVP across the country. FFVP’s main goal is for students to develop healthy eating habits before they grow accustomed to junk foods. They hope that expanding the variety of fruits and vegetables offered in elementary schools will make a difference in children's future food choices. “Our goal is for more kids to make healthy choices. We’ve already started to see improvements,” Will Rogers Principal Irma Lyons said. SEE GRANT PAGE 11

EDITOR IN CHIEF Kevin Herrera editor@smdp.com

Editor:

This week has been great for me personally. Barack Obama won the presidency in a landslide victory. I am very excited. I guess because I got to vote for the first time in American since I became a U.S. citizen in 2006. Most importantly, from my heart, I feel that finally, right and wrong, good and bad, smart and dumb have been straightened out by the great democratic system, and this is what makes America such a great nation. I am an immigrant from China. I still remember the Tiananmen Square crack down while I was a college student; the moment that brutal force conquered the cries for democracy. Left with despair and hopelessness, and trying to escape the foreseeable fate that lays out for me, I fanatically applied for American schools. Finally, a letter from a university in New York came notifying me that I was accepted into their graduate program with a scholarship. At that moment, I knew that my life would be changed forever, and I finally got a ticket to a free and better place. This election, reminds me of my good fortune again just to be here. With his confidence, eloquence, and most of all, his idealism, Obama easily erased racial barriers that so many people think that are unbreakable. After I came to America, I received an education in individualism and self improvement, something of which I knew nothing about while I was in China. Although I felt the liberation that one can control his or her own destiny, I also sensed that people in America are more practical and short sighted. Few Americans care about international events; they only wish to have a nice house and a comfortable life. Only a few really have big dreams. That is shown obviously by the presidential election in 2004. Instead of dreaming that the USA, being the most powerful nation in the world, can do a lot better both at home and abroad, people just made a choice to settle with the mediocre policies of George Bush. I had also become more realistic, content to only enjoy my life and three gorgeous kids. But this week, I feel deep down very happy that Obama did something impossible. He did it with his dream, and his dream inspired millions of others. His accomplishment gives hope to everyone who also wants to do something impossible. America now is great and perfect, at least to me. I can now tell my kids, with all honesty and sincerity, that they can dream, and dream big.

No on T campaign dished dirt and dishonor until Election Day

Daniel Archuleta daniela@smdp.com

STAFF WRITER Melody Hanatani melodyh@smdp.com

LAST WEEK, I PREDICTED THAT T, THE

“commercial development cap/reduce traffic” measure, would pass comfortably. Losing 56 to 44 percent isn’t winning comfortably, so I’m swallowing my dinner of stewed crow. I overestimated the ability of Santa Monica voters to recognize B.S. and fairy tales. But, with Save Our City (SOC) spending well over $800,000 from realtors and developers with projects pending to “swift boat” the measure, it was virtually impossible to counter misinformation and set the record straight. SOC hired pollsters and a PR firm that developed “hot button copy points” which best conveyed that Measure T was evil and destructive. Claims such as T “will allow landlords to displace tenants,” “not reduce traffic,” “would devastate the schools” and “jeopardizes city services” received good response from prospective voters even though they weren’t true. SOC leaders could care less that their campaign was pure misrepresentation and prevarication. They “approved this message.” Winning at any cost was paramount. So, SOC’s Co-Chairs Terry O’Day (Planning Commission chair) and Judy Abdo (Santa Monicans for Renters’ Rights Steering Committee member), Bruce Cameron (SMRR Steering Committee member), land use attorneys Chris Harding and Tom Larmore and former eye doctor turned realestate salesman Mike Gruning and others pulled out all the stops. SOC was desperate to get endorsements from school supporters and groups such as the PTA, CEPS and LEAD early on to establish credibility. Numerous sources tell me Harding and Gruning (who were both on CEPS Steering Committee) played hardball with fellow CEP members and other school leaders by suggesting that if they didn’t stand against T, the Chamber of Commerce may not be there when you need them. One recently re-elected anti-T councilman also threatened the city’s funding contract with the school district if supporters and groups didn’t denounce T. SOC shills stressed the importance of being on the good side of the majority of council persons (opposing T) to keep city subsidies for programs and funding safe. When SOC campaign materials began trumpeting “T will hurt schools,” many supporters, including a number of school board members, were shocked and felt betrayed and exploited. “It’s not what we signed on for,” said one school activist who asked not to be named. “They played us to get credibility and then used our endorsements to give credence to sleazy lies.”

Being non-committal on the issue was tantamount to supporting it, waverers were told. Councilman Kevin McKeown said there was so much arm twisting going on that “there are still sore arms all over town.” Renters were also victimized by anti-T advocates, especially by a couple of longtime SMRR leaders. A SMRR veteran told me many of No on T’s pressure points involved threats to renters that just weren’t true. And, SMRR honchos Abdo and Cameron were desperately trying to find ways to intimate that SMRR opposed T after the organization took no position on it. Abdo and company sold out renters by doing the bidding of anti-rent control developers and spreading another big lie: “T was too risky for renters.” Anti-T and “neutral” SMRR leaders such as SMRR’s two co-chairs knew that uncontrolled commercial development and the demand for housing it creates poses a greater risk to existing tenants and the city’s older housing stock than T’s development cap. Yet, they said nothing publicly. SOC’s big bucks bought massive exposure. I received 16 color mailers condemning T as opposed to three mailers from the Santa Monica Coalition for a Livable City backing T — not counting voter guides, slate mailers, political party or other campaign materials. SMCLC spent $20,000 on the three mailers that only went to 15,000 targeted households versus the 45,000 households that received SOC’s 16 anti-T brochures, according to Diana Gordon who heads the group. With that kind of media weight, there’s no way anyone could derail SOC’s massive misinformation train. Huge war chests also helped pass Measure AA, Santa Monica College’s $295-million bond proposal with its $450,000 advertising budget. Excluding slate mailers and other campaign materials, I received 13 Yes on AA mailers plus four additional SMRR mailings and a door hanger endorsing AA. I received no mailings from No on AA, who raised $3,100 for their messaging. If the No on AA and Yes on T campaigns each had a couple hundred grand, the outcomes might have been different. Unfortunately, voters mostly hear about one side of a measure and it’s usually the big bucks side with the obscene ad budgets. Imagine if England came to the colonies 232 years ago with a mega-huge ad campaign trashing independence as “being too risky.” We’d be speaking with English accents now.

That Rutherford Guy

Heirs of the revolution YEAR

WAS

1961.

I

WAS

14-years-old, the only child of blue-collar workers living in Peoria, Illinois. Lacking any great understanding of the winds of change that were blowing through our nation and the world, I sat transfixed in front of our small black-and-white television as John F. Kennedy delivered his inaugural address as the nation’s 35th president. The sound might have crackled and the picture wavered, but Kennedy’s message came through loud and clear. It was a message of hope, challenge and faith in an America that could be a beacon of freedom to the rest of the world. Kennedy called us the “heirs of that first revolution” and spoke of rights that come not from the state but from God.“Let the word go forth,” he said, “that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans — born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage — and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this Nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.” I realized that Kennedy was not talking to my parents or my teachers or the cop on the beat: he was talking to me. Everything in me wanted to be part of an America that was a champion of justice and a model of virtue. When Kennedy called on Americans to “bear the burden of a long twilight struggle” to defend freedom in its hour of maximum danger, I never would have guessed how long that twilight would last — or that almost half a century later, we, the American people, would come to represent the gravest threat to our freedoms through our apathy, ignorance and indifference. The world is a very different place from when I was a teenager. We undeniably live in perilous, uncertain times. Our nation is plagued by perpetual war; a deteriorating economy; shadowy enemies bent on terrorizing us; increasingly aggressive government agencies. Governmental tentacles now invade virtually every facet of our lives, with agents of the government listening in on our telephone calls and reading our e-mails. The groundwork has been laid for a new kind of government where it will no longer matter if you’re innocent or guilty, whether you’re a threat to the nation or even if you’re a citi-

zen. What will matter is what the president — or whoever happens to be in power at the time — thinks. We have an appalling literacy rate; a populace with little understanding of history or the United States Constitution; porous borders with countless illegal immigrants flowing over them; ravaging natural disasters; a monstrous financial deficit; armed forces pushed to their limit, spread around the globe. We’re embroiled in wars in Afghanistan and Iraq against a rebel enemy that seems to attack from nowhere. Our country is both ideologically and politically fractured. Is there any hope? Yes, there is. But that hope does not rest with a president, Congress or the government. And it never has. That is an illusion. The only real hope in any significant change for the better rests in the American people. But first we have to regain a sense of America’s history and reclaim our inheritance. The freedoms we often take for granted did not come about through happenstance. They were hard-won through the sheer determination, suffering and sacrifice of thousands of patriotic Americans who not only believed in the cause of liberty but also acted on that belief. Those revolutionaries were average citizens, not agitators or hotheads. They were not looking for trouble or trying to start a fight. Like many today, they were simply trying to make it from one day to another. But they finally had enough and decided to stand and fight for the one thing that makes an American an American: freedom. It wasn’t easy. Many lost their livelihoods and homes. Many lost their lives. But, like Tom Paine, they would not be sunshine patriots. They would not shrink from service to their country. If we are to survive as a nation, we must regain the spirit of the American revolutionaries. It’s time to turn off the television set, put down the cell phone and, if need be, take to the streets and make sure our voices are heard. Some of our fellow citizens are already on the frontlines of freedom. Let’s join them. Constitutional attorney and author John W. Whitehead is founder and president of The Rutherford Institute. He can be contacted at johnw@rutherford.org. Information about The Rutherford Institute is available at www.rutherford.org.

Reflections on Election Day Election Day has come and gone. There is a new president, incumbents ruled the day locally, new laws were enacted, and even a few new taxes were approved by voters.

Call (310) 285-8106 before Friday at 5 p.m. and we’ll print your answers in the weekend edition of the Daily Press. Please limit responses to a minute or less.

Obama wants to use powers right away BY STEPHEN OHLEMACHER Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON President-elect Obama plans to use his executive powers to make an immediate impact when he takes office, perhaps reversing Bush administration policies on stem cell research and domestic drilling for oil and natural gas. John Podesta, Obama’s transition chief, said Sunday Obama is reviewing President Bush’s executive orders on those issues and others as he works to undo policies enacted during eight years of Republican rule. He said the president can use such orders to move quickly on his own. “There’s a lot that the president can do using his executive authority without waiting for congressional action, and I think we’ll see the president do that,” Podesta said. “I think that he feels like he has a real mandate for change. We need to get off the course that the Bush administration has set.” Podesta also said Obama is working to build a diverse Cabinet. That includes reaching out to Republicans and independents — part of the broad coalition that supported Obama during the race against Republican John McCain. Defense Secretary Robert Gates has been mentioned as a possible holdover. “He’s not even a Republican,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said. “Why wouldn’t we want to keep him? He’s never been a registered Republican.” Obama was elected on a promise of change, but the nature of the job makes it difficult for presidents to do much that has an immediate impact on the lives of average people. Congress plans to take up a second economic aid plan before year’s end — an effort Obama supports, But it could be months or longer before taxpayers see the effect. Obama could use his executive powers to at least signal that Washington is changing. “Obama’s advantage of course is he’ll have the House and the Senate working with him, and that makes it easier,” said Carl Tobias, a law professor at the University of Richmond. “But even then, having an immediate impact is very difficult to do because the machinery of government doesn’t move that quickly.” Presidents long have used executive orders to impose policy and set priorities. One of Bush’s first acts was to reinstate full abortion restrictions on U.S. overseas aid. The restrictions were first ordered by President Reagan and the first President Bush followed suit. President Clinton lifted them soon after he occupied the Oval Office and it wouldn’t be surprising if Obama did the same. Executive orders “have the power of law and they can cover just about anything,”

Tobias said in a telephone interview. Bush used his executive power to limit federal spending on embryonic stem cell research, a position championed by opponents of abortion rights who argue that destroying embryos is akin to killing a fetus. Obama has supported the research in an effort to find cures for diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Many moderate Republicans also support the research, giving it the stamp of bipartisanship. On drilling, the federal Bureau of Land Management is opening about 360,000 acres of public land in Utah to oil and gas drilling. Bush administration officials argue that the drilling will not harm sensitive areas; environmentalists oppose it. “They want to have oil and gas drilling in some of the most sensitive, fragile lands in Utah,” Podesta said. “I think that’s a mistake.” Two top House Republicans said there is a willingness to try to work with Obama to get things done. But they said to expect Republicans to serve as a check against the power held by Obama and Democratic leaders in Congress. “It’s going to be a cheerful opposition,” said Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind. “We’re going to carry those timeless principles of limited government, a strong defense, traditional values, to the American people.” Pence, of Indiana, is expected to take over the No. 3 leadership post among House Republicans. In other transition matters, Obama’s new chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, would not say whether Obama would return to the Senate for votes during the postelection session this month. Obama’s presence would be extraordinary, given his position as president-elect, especially if Congress takes up a muchanticipated economic stimulus plan. “I think that the basic approach has been he’s going to be here in Chicago, setting up his economic, not only his economic team, but the policies he wants to outline for the country as soon as he gets sworn in, so we hit the ground running,” Emanuel said. Also, Emanuel would not commit to a Democratic proposal to help the auto industry with some of the $700 billion approved by Congress to for the financial bailout. Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, DCalif., said in a letter Saturday to Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson that the administration should consider expanding the bailout to include car companies. Podesta appeared on “Fox News Sunday,” as did Pence, and CNN’s “Late Edition,” where Reid also was interviewed. Emanuel spoke on ABC’s “This Week” and CBS’ “Face the Nation."

Republican Party loses grip on New England BY SUSAN HAIGH Associated Press Writer

HARTFORD, Conn. A generation ago the Republican Party was the dominant political force in New England, populating the region’s congressional delegations with moderates like Connecticut’s Lowell P. Weicker Jr. and Rhode Island’s John Chafee. But today’s GOP, led by a more socially conservative wing of the party, is finding votes harder to come by. Voters on Tuesday cast out Connecticut’s veteran Rep. Chris Shays, the last New England Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives. Sen. John Sununu was voted out in New Hampshire, leaving that state’s Judd Gregg and Maine’s Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe as the only Republicans among the region’s 12 senators. Shays’ loss to former Goldman Sachs executive Jim Himes marks the first time since 1969 that southwestern Connecticut will be represented by a Democrat in the House. “I felt that we were going to win this, I really did,” Shays told supporters. “I felt that people were so good to me, they were so nice to me. But they were deciding they were going to go the other way.” New England’s decision to “go the other way” in recent elections is a dramatic transformation for a region considered a Republican stronghold a generation ago. The Republican Party and New England have a long history together. At their first presidential convention, in 1856, Republicans nominated John C. Fremont on a platform of abolishing slavery in the territories — a widely held view in the North. While Fremont lost, he carried 11 Northern states. Later, Abraham Lincoln captured the presidency by winning 18 Northern states. By the late 1940s, Republicans held 21 of 28 of New England’s seats in the House of Representatives. But the turning point came in 1964, when the Republicans nominated conservative Barry Goldwater for president, said Gary Rose, a political science professor at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Conn. Known for being fiscally conservative but more socially

liberal, Northeast moderates — dubbed the Rockefeller Republicans after the former New York governor — started to be eclipsed by the more socially conservative wing of the party. “The eastern establishment got weaker and weaker,” Rose said. “Today, there’s really no eastern establishment to speak of.” Chafee’s son, Lincoln, was appointed to the Senate in 1999 after his father’s death and was elected in 2000 to a sixyear term. A moderate like his father, Chafee was the only Republican in the Senate to vote against authorizing the use of force in Iraq. But he was defeated by a Democrat in 2006. That same year, Reps. Nancy Johnson and Rob Simmons of Connecticut also were defeated by Democrats, buoyed by anti-Iraq-war and anti-President Bush sentiment. “There is no longer, to speak of, a moderate voice within the party,” Rose said. “It’s a party that’s becoming more narrow and there’s really no sense of compromise within the party.” Jennifer Donahue, political director of the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at St. Anselm College, said she believes the GOP can still come back, at least in independent-minded New Hampshire where the state motto is “Live Free or Die.” “It depends on the state. I don’t really think you can look at it as a regional phenomenon,” Donahue said of New England politicians trending Democratic. “The further north you get, the colder it gets, the more the voters look at (races) on a case-by-case basis.” A large increase of registered Democrats factor into Sununu’s loss, she said. But those numbers can change, especially as more fiscally conservative tax refugees migrate north from neighboring Massachusetts. “It doesn’t necessarily indicate a long term pattern coming out of this,” she said. “New Hampshire has a uniqueness in that way. It is not fundamentally a state that has in its essence more Democrats than Republicans.” Lawrence J. Cafero Jr., the Republican leader of Connecticut’s House of Representatives, blames the image of the national Republican party for hurting the GOP in New England, where Republicans historically have often favored fiscal responsibility, abortion rights, protection of personal liberties and strong environmental policies.

He believes the problem worsened with the 1994 socalled “Republican Revolution,” when midterm congressional elections added 54 Republican seats in the House. “They lost their way and I think more and more New England people, especially those who were Republicans basically because of smaller government and less government intrusion into our lives, started to see their party led by people whose foremost issues were social issues, religious and values and morals, etc.,” Cafero said. “I think that turned a lot of people off in New England and they didn’t feel the party was really with them,” he added. Carrie James, a regional press secretary with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which supports Democratic congressional candidates, said bad feelings about President Bush, the war in Iraq and the weakened economy have helped to persuade New England voters to support Democrats over the past eight years. One bright spot for the GOP in New England has been their control of governorships. Republicans are governors in Connecticut, Vermont and Rhode Island. “A big part of our strategy this cycle was to link Republican incumbents with the failed policies of the Bush administration and it’s not applicable in a governor’s race,” James said. “But certainly President Bush damaged the Republican brand across the board.” Rose said he believes Republican gubernatorial candidates in New England will face the same challenges as GOP congressional candidates. He said it’s difficult to tell what Yankee Republicans represent and what role they’ll play in the future. “The only reason they’ve been able to survive is they’ve acted like Democrats,” Rose said. “They too, I think are going to become endangered species.” Thomas Whalen, a political historian at Boston University, said he believes the Republican brand in New England will become even less popular over time, especially as some national party activists tout socially conservative Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as the future of the GOP and the prime presidential candidate in 2012. “I think that’s going to turn off even more people (in New England),” said Whalen, author of “A Higher Purpose: Profiles in Presidential Courage.”

MORE POWER: Toyota has made no announcement yet as to when consumers will be able to buy a plug-in hybrid Prius. But Prius owners with $4,000-$10,000 to spare can convert their Priuses to plug-ins themselves or with the help of a number of available kits.

Making the switch Dear EarthTalk I understand that Toyota is planning to sell a plug-in Prius that will greatly improve the car’s already impressive fuel efficiency. Will I be able to convert my older (2006) Prius to make it a plug-in hybrid vehicle?

Albert D. Rich Kamuela, HI

TOYOTA IS READYING A LIMITED RUN OF

a plug-in Prius, which can average 100 miles per gallon, for use in government and commercial fleets starting in 2009. Toyota will monitor how these cars, which will have high efficiency lithium ion batteries that haven’t been fully tested yet, will hold up under everyday use. Essentially, a plug-in version of the Prius reverses the roles of the two motors under the hood. The regular Prius relies more on its gas engine, switching to (or combining) use of the electric motor in slow traffic, to maintain cruising speed, and when idling or backing up. The car doesn’t need to plug in because its battery stays charged by the gas motor and by the motion of the wheels and brakes. The plug-in will primarily use its electric motor, allowing commuters to go to and from work every day fully on the electric charge, saving the gas engine for longer trips that exceed the distance the car can go on electricity alone. Toyota has made no announcement yet as to when consumers will be able to buy a plug-in; that depends largely on the results of the field test of the fleet version. But owners of a current or past model don’t need to wait. Those with automotive mechanical skills can convert their Priuses to plug-ins themselves. “The conversion is an easy DIY [do-ityourself] project that you can do for about $4,000, if you choose to use sealed lead acid batteries,” says Houston-based Jim Philippi,

who converted his Prius last year, using instructions he downloaded for free from the Electric Auto Association’s PriusPlus.org website. Philippi recommends that DIYers consult Google’s RechargeIT.org as well for useful background information. For those less inclined to a DIY, several companies now sell readymade kits (some also have kits for converting Ford Escape Hybrid SUVs). Ontario-based Hymotion sells plug-in kits for Prius model years 20042008 for around $10,000 via contracted distributors/installers in San Francisco, Seattle and elsewhere. Other providers include Plug-In Conversions Corp., Plug-In Supply, EDrive Systems, Energy Control Systems Engineering Inc. and OEMtek. All typically work with select garages that specialize. One potential worry about conversions is whether or not Toyota will honor the warranty that came with the original vehicle. The California Cars Initiative (CCI), which has converted several hybrids to plug-ins for research and demonstration purposes (sorry, they’re not for sale), says the carmaker needs to clarify the matter, since hybrid cars typically have four or five separate warranties. There is legal precedent, CCI says, that modifications cannot completely void warranties — only the part(s) affected by a retrofit. If you’re looking to convert, keep in mind that such a move is not about cost-savings, as it will take some time for fuel savings to justify the upfront cost of even a DIY. Most people interested in such a conversion are doing it for the sake of the environment, not their pocketbooks. Want to talk environment? Submit questions to earthtalk@emagazine.com.

Veteran learned life skills while at war FROM CP PAGE 1 work in high school as it was so I didn’t see myself going to college afterward trying to do that,” Henton said. “I figured I wanted to be a Marine anyway so I decided to do my service and after that go to college on the GI Bill.” His first deployment was in Baghdad just weeks after the war started. “Going up there was interesting to see … the amount of desert and some of the destruction here and there,” Henton said. “There was no sense of reality hitting — it’s ‘I’m here now and this is what I got to do.’” His second and third tours were in the Fallujah region. For Henton, the best moments came in his interactions with Iraqi civilians. “They’re just normal people like you and I, trying to get by, wanting to be content with their lives at the least,” he said. “Whatever their religion, they’re normal people — they’ve got to eat, they’ve got to breathe and they’ve got to have shelter.” Henton said he would support pulling the troops out of Iraq, but would prefer it in a phased approach, fearing the consequences of what would happen if the American forces left abruptly. “We’ve done well about training the Iraqi army and police forces,” he said. “The more we can get out there and the more we can do to build up their infrastructure … the outcome will turn out better.” A number of veterans who have returned from the Middle East have spoken out against the war. Henton said that he signed a contract knowing what he was doing and was going to fulfill his promise. “There are obviously a lot of people who did not care for the politics behind it and there was a lot of shady stuff obviously, whether it was Dick Cheney or (George W.) Bush or Halliburton,” Henton said. “I still try to think about Saddam (Hussein) and his sons and what they did to the people they were in charge of. “We still found torture chambers … and I thought it was very unfortunate they had

decided to try to say weapons of mass destruction or whatever excuses they used to push a preemptive war on the American people.” Henton finished his third tour in December 2006 and by February the next year, he was enrolled in SMC. The native Alaskan had learned about the college while visiting his father in Marine del Rey during trips from Camp Pendleton where he was based. He had also previously completed an internship with a special effects company in Venice through SMC, earning course credit. Soon after enrolling, Henton and several students talked about revitalizing the campus’ veterans club and began rewriting the constitution to get the organization off the ground. It was through the club that Henton had his first introduction to the student government at SMC, serving as the representative at the Inter-Club Council meetings and later the Associated Students’ Joint Council. He had been asked by other students whether he would run for a position on the Associated Students but declined, believing it would cut into his ability to take other classes, which would decrease the amount of money he would receive from the G.I. Bill. Henton found a solution in the student trustee position, which is demanding but actually pays a stipend, helping him recover the losses. The position has given him a better appreciation of the decision-making that goes on in the college. Just two years into SMC, Henton said he plans on graduating with an associate’s degree in general science and perhaps transfer to Loyola Marymount University in a few years to study history and/or political science. Looking back at his years serving in Iraq, Henton said he has no regrets. “I learned a lot about life in general and how to look at things outside of the box to picture it differently,” he said. melodyh@smdp.com

MAKING THE RIGHT FOOD CHOICES: Will Rogers Elementary School was one of 25 schools in the state that received a Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) grant of $26,100 to purchase nutritional food items from local Farmers’ Markets to serve students during lunch.

Will Rogers receives healthy food grant

FREE DELIVERY ($10 Minimum Order)

FROM GRANT PAGE 3 The program allows many kids to connect with their parents in addition to their peers. “Kids say they want to go shopping with their parents now to pick out healthier foods,” Lyons said. But Will Rogers has worked toward improving its cafeteria food options since before FFVP began. For the past decade, the school has tried to positively impact students’ health in different ways. They currently offer a salad bar at lunchtime every day. The school also holds weekly group meetings called Students and Teachers in Nurturing Groups for Success (STRINGS). Each group, made up of approximately 20 students, meets for one

hour every Friday to discuss and develop healthy behaviors related to their bodies, minds and community. Through Will Rogers’ innovative actions, they have become an inspiration to schools up and down the California coast. Officials from the California Department of Education and other program advocates like Kawamura and DiSogra, visited Will Rogers on Oct. 30 for the program’s unveiling. They talked to different classes about the importance of the program and asked for student feedback. As a result of the program, Will Rogers faculty hopes the students will “start to see they can make healthy choices,” Lyons said. news@smdp.com

SMC honors historic team during homecoming FROM SMC PAGE 1 game that night. “They’re going to play their hearts out for you tonight, and play their hearts out for the Corsair football program,” Taylor said. Once they had received their commemorative plaques the group went up to the skybox to watch the game. The skybox was decorated with the original team colors, orange and black, and filled with historic memorabilia such as Rose Bowl tickets that sold for $3 and news clippings covering their undefeated season. The inductees were all crossing their fingers for a homecoming victory that night. “I went to see [Coach Taylor], and I told him that ‘I got ten of us that are ready if you need us.’ He said ‘I probably could use you tonight,’” said Silas. Many of the players left the skybox, so the

Corsair team could hear them cheer, and to prepare for halftime when they would step onto the field to greet the crowd. “I’ll probably shake halfway out there and might have to borrow somebody’s walker,” Sahlgren said jokingly. “I’m nervous as a cat in a roomful of walking chairs.” During halftime while the Corsairs held a small lead over the Southwest Cougars, 7-6, the former players were escorted onto the field by SMC students. The crowd was meager in attendance, compared to the 50,000 that attended their final game, and they likely had no idea the ceremony was going to take place. The Corsairs held onto their narrow lead of 7-6 to seal their victory. Sahlgren described it as “the icing on the cake.” news@smdp.com

score like Big 12 powerhouses Texas Tech, Texas and Oklahoma. On defense, though, no team in the country measures up to the hard-hitting Trojans. California came to the Los Angeles Coliseum ranked 21st in the country and averaging 36.4 points per game, but managed only a field goal Saturday night in a 173 loss to No. 6 USC, keeping the Trojans’ national championship hopes alive. “We have a swagger and a confidence. It’s not cockiness, it’s confidence,” defensive end Clay Matthews said. “Our mind-set is to shut down the run and the pass and to shut out each team each game.” The Trojans came close to their fourth shutout in five games against the Golden Bears, who got a 35-yard field goal from Giorgio Tavecchio midway through the second quarter. Cal wouldn’t score again. “We set boundaries and goals at the beginning of the season,” said linebacker Rey Maualuga, who made seven tackles and assisted on three others. “We came together tonight. We have a veteran group of guys, and everybody knows their jobs. We don’t try to be superstars, we play within our system.” Mark Sanchez passed for 238 yards and two touchdowns in USC’s sixth straight victory. The Trojans (8-1, 6-1 Pac-10) have outscored the opposition 231-23 since losing 27-21 as 25-point favorites at Oregon State. USC has allowed an NCAA-low 6.7 points per game, the Trojans’ best defensive performance since 1952, when they gave up 4.3 points per game. They’ve given up just seven touchdowns four by Oregon State and three by their other eight opponents combined. And they also lead the country in total defense, allowing 206.4 yards per game. “The defense was playing like crazy lights out again,” USC coach Pete Carroll said. “The game was more in control than it looked because the score was so close. The

guys just keep playing, quarters after quarters after quarters. They just don’t give up anything.” The Trojans have gone more than 2Ω games since giving up a touchdown Arizona got one in the second quarter of a 17-10 loss to USC on Oct. 25. Cal (6-3, 4-2) had only 165 yards of total offense, the fourth straight opponent USC has held under 200. “We have a high regard for Cal and to hold them the way we did tonight is a major accomplishment,” Carroll said. “We have a good opportunity to finish this thing and are looking forward to the next challenge. We have a chance to be a really good team with this defense. They definitely give us a good chance to win out.” Even that might not be enough to get the Trojans into the Rose Bowl, much less the BCS title game. Oregon State topped UCLA 34-6 on Saturday, leaving the 23rd-ranked Beavers (6-3, 5-1) in position to play in their first Rose Bowl in 44 years if they beat Cal, Arizona and Oregon to finish the regular season. USC, which finishes against Stanford, Notre Dame and UCLA, has won or shared the conference title and played in a BCS bowl in each of the past six years. USC is 25-0 in November games since Carroll became coach in 2001, and has won 43 of its last 44 games at the Coliseum, where a crowd of 88,523 watched the latest triumph. “We’re playing really well right now,” said linebacker Brian Cushing, who had six tackles and three assists. “We have a lot of seniors out there who know their roles. We are playing aggressive. We just know how to play.” Trailing 10-3, Cal moved into USC territory three times in the third quarter, but came up empty. The Bears wouldn’t threaten again. “Everyone understands what a special group they have on defense,” Bears coach Jeff Tedford said. “You can’t beat yourself in situations, have penalties, get a touchdown called back, especially when you play a defense like that."

’Bama, Texas Tech pull away in AP Top 25 BY RALPH D. RUSSO AP College Football Writer

NEW YORK Penn State slipped to the back of the one-loss pack Sunday in The Associated Press college football poll, while No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Texas Tech strengthened their hold on the top spots. The Nittany Lions fell four places to No. 7 in the Top 25 after losing for the first time this season. The 24-23 loss at Iowa on a field goal in the final seconds all but eliminated coach Joe Paterno’s team from the national title race and left only Alabama and Texas Tech as unbeaten teams from the six BCS conferences. The Crimson Tide (10-0) needed overtime to stay perfect, beating LSU 27-21 in Nick Saban’s return to Baton Rouge, La., as Alabama coach. The Tide received 44 firstplace votes and 1,604 points from the media panel.

The Red Raiders (10-0) followed up their big win over Texas last week with a resounding 56-20 victory over Oklahoma State. The impressive performance earned the Red Raiders the remaining 21 first-place votes, up from 12 last week, and 1,574 points. Alabama plays Mississippi State at home on Saturday and Texas Tech has a week off before playing at Oklahoma on Nov. 22, the Red Raiders’ fourth consecutive game against a ranked opponent. No. 3 Florida, No. 4 Texas, No. 5 Oklahoma and No. 6 Southern California, all with one-loss but still with national title hopes, all moved up one spot and are ahead of the Penn State. No. 8 Utah (10-0) moved up two spots, jumping over Boise State (9-0) which stayed at No. 9. The Utes and Broncos are both trying to break into the Bowl Championship Series from conferences without an automatic bid to the big-money games.

Act like it’s Friday, Sagittarius ARIES (March 21-April 19)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

★★★★★ You are in the thick of things, like it or not. Investigate and understand what is happening. Do you want to change directions? A sudden insight takes you down a new path, allowing you to see the situation far differently. Tonight: Personality plus.

★★★★★ Others prove to be demanding and direct. Listen to news knowing there are no immediate solutions. Your resourcefulness always proves to be an asset. Your ability to break past the obvious once more determines your success. Tonight: Sort through invitations.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

★★★ Read between the lines and understand what is happening behind the scenes. Observe rather than act. A friend behaves in a most unexpected manner. Tonight: Where the gang is.

★★★★ How you deal with a situation could change dramatically because of cooperation and understanding. Questions asked help you go very far and draw results. Realize what needs to happen. Tonight: Yap up a storm.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ★★★★★ Emphasize goals and where you are heading. You will be successful if you stay goaloriented. Know that you can and might need to handle a quirky boss before he or she handles you. Your intuitive response is the right one. Tonight: As you like.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★★★ Your playfulness earmarks your interactions. Others understand far more than you realize. Come from a strong point of view and, above all, be willing to stand up for yourself. Consider your options. Tonight: Act like it's Friday, not Monday.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) ★★★ All eyes turn to you. Understand that you are a leader. How you absorb unusual or shocking information could define who you are. Laughter allows greater flow and ease with others. Tonight: As you like.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★ Stay solid with your thinking, knowing which way to go. Realize what needs to happen within your inner circle, especially on the home front. How you deal with a situation could change greatly. Tonight: Hang out.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ Deal with someone directly. How you handle a personal matter and the choices you make could be quite different as a result. The more information you gather, the better off you will be. Express your innate buoyancy. Tonight: Take in a new view.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★★ You might want to understand what is going on within your immediate circle. Though you might hear what someone is saying, the words don't ring true.Tonight: Visit with a friend. Ask for this person's opinion in a difficult matter.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★★ Work with others as a team. Your ability to defer and listen comes through. How you deal with someone could change radically because of unexpected actions and decisions. Your high energy only adds to the moment. Tonight: Listen to an offer.

Happy birthday

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★ Your intensity comes out when dealing with a financial matter. You are on top of your game. Carefully listen to what someone offers. If it doesn't jibe with what you want, be willing to say no. Tonight: Just for you.

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

Listen to your inner voice more often this year. You'll be able to make headway if you allow greater give-andtake in your daily life. Communication remains instrumental this year. You could turn around a trend that's unacceptable to you when you least expect it. Tap into your creativity and other talents when feeling flustered or at a dead end. Others learn to count on your ideas and solution-finding skills. If you are single, you might not keep that status much longer. Someone quite romantic will enter your life. Enjoy every moment. If you are attached, your relationship captures the old romantic tone of the past.

Sudoku

By Justin Borus and Andrew Feinstein

Fill in the blank cells using numbers 1 to 9. Each number can appear only once in each row, column, and 3x3 block. Use logic and process of elimination to solve the puzzle. The difficulty level ranges from ★ (easiest) to ★★★★★ (hardest).

The Meaning of Lila

By John Forgetta & L.A. Rose

King Features Syndicate

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.

Strange Brew

By John Deering

CHUCK

SHEPARD

■ Recent Heroic Dogs: (1) Buddy, the German shepherd trained to punch 911 on a special phone and bark, came through in the clutch in September when owner Joe Stalnaker of Scottsdale, Ariz., had a seizure. (Stalnaker said it was the third time Buddy had saved him.) (2) Cash, a German shepherd, remained at the side of his 25-year-old master, in the Colorado prairie, for six weeks this summer after the man's suicide, until the body was found in August. Cash apparently strayed only to catch mice and rabbits for food but then returned. ■ A plumbing error in October at the annual Grape Festival in Marino, Italy, stymied the traditional hookup in which white wine cascades through the famous fountains in the center of town. Instead, water continued to run in the fountains, but "10 to 12" nearby homeowners must have thought it glorious divine intervention, briefly, when they opened their taps and found white wine flowing freely.

TODAY IN HISTORY

Speed Bump

By Dave Coverly

The U.S. Marines were organized under authority of the Continental Congress. Journalist-explorer Henry M. Stanley found Scottish missionary David Livingstone, who had not been heard from for years, near Lake Tanganyika in central Africa. 41 suffragists were arrested for picketing in front of the White House. The American Legion opened its first national convention, in Minneapolis. Japan’s Emperor Hirohito was formally enthroned, almost two years after his ascension. Kate Smith first sang Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America” on her CBS radio program, which aired on Thursdays. Turkish statesman Mustafa Kemal Ataturk died in Istanbul at age 57. The U.S. Marine Corps Memorial, depicting the raising of the American flag on Iwo Jima in 1945, was dedicated by President Eisenhower in Arlington, Va.
