Venice rallies to top Samohi BY WILL WEISS Special to the Daily Press

CORSAIR FIELD Football fans who turned out for Friday night’s rivalry matchup between the Samohi Vikings and the Venice High School Gondoliers were not disappointed by a blowout. Though Venice sealed the 31-28 victory with a field goal with less than a minute remaining in the fourth quarter, what transpired during the two hours preceding was nothing short of a battle. With much thanks to Samohi quarterback Garrett Safron, who scrambled for two

first downs on the Vikings’ first offensive drive, Samohi got up early with a 7-0 lead by the middle of the first quarter. After that the action sputtered. Both teams struggled to move the ball for the remainder of the first quarter and neither converted a first down until three minutes into the second period when Safron connected with senior wide receiver Chris Featherstone for a first down on third and four. Four plays later, after another third down conversion on a run from junior running back Brandon Taylor, Safron passed short to Featherstone for another touch-

down, putting Santa Monica up 14-0. Venice didn’t have to rally to get back in the game, though, as captain and senior wide receiver Jonathan McNeal streaked for a huge return and touchdown on the kickoff, finding a hole on the left sideline and criss-crossing the field at the 50 on his way. With that, Samohi’s momentum was stunted, and the Vikings were only able to drive up field for a fruitless 42-yard field goal attempt by senior Jake Schmidt. Schmidt’s kick had the distance, but sailed right for the miss. SEE VIKINGS PAGE 11

A WRABBLE-rouser BY MARISSA LYMAN Special to the Daily Press

For Elisa Terry, life has always been about staying active. As the daughter of parents who studied recreation in college, Terry remembers spending family time at local tracks and parks and walking with her dad through her hometown of Huntington Beach. But somewhere down the line, lifestyles began to change. As the program director for UCLA’s recreation and wellness program, Terry, now 40 and living in Santa Monica, sees a world where movement has not only lost its value, but has become nearly impossible. “The jobs are more sedentary. Everything is made more convenient to us,” she said. “Things have just gotten ... a little off kilter and we need balance.” To help people move, Terry has created WRABBLE, fitness adventure puzzles that combine movement and questions to foster activity with a purpose. The puzzles consist

Report: 218 killed by Metrolink trains in 15 years

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL

St. Monica falls to Laguna Beach BY WILL WEISS Special to the Daily Press

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CORSAIR FIELD Things could have gone

LOS ANGELES Accidents involving trains from Southern California’s Metrolink system killed 218 people in the 15 years leading up to last year’s collision that left 25 dead, according to a report published Sunday. A Los Angeles Times investigation of accident records found that most of the deaths along with many more serious injuries came from trains hitting automobiles and pedestrians at street crossings. The Times said a pair of busy crossings in the San Fernando Valley — both complicated mazes of streets and signals — have proved the most dangerous in the system. A Jan. 6, 2003 crash at Buena Vista and San Fernando Boulevard in Burbank crossing killed a 63-year-old driver who rolled his pickup truck into an oncoming train. Two train cars derailed and flipped, killing a train passenger and injuring 20 other riders. Exactly three years later at the same crossing a 76-year-old woman turned in front of a train going 75 mph and her car was dragged for a third of a mile. She was also killed. Metrolink blamed both accidents on drivers trying to beat the train. The crossing had already had several injury accidents before those two, and received a harsh 2003 critique by the National Transportation Safety Board. The report suggested making a left-turn arrow more clear, and building a more prominent median that would help prevent cars from reaching the tracks, but the agency only made minor refinements. A nearby crossing at Sunland Boulevard in Sun Valley was the most dangerous in the system, seeing 13 train accidents in those 15 years. “I call it the culture of denial and deflection,” said USC engineering professor Najmedin Meshkati, who has become a vocal critic of the agency after studying human factors in accidents. Meshkati said Metrolink focused for years on increasing ridership instead of safety, and only after last year’s collision — the seconddeadliest rail accident in U.S. history — did Metrolink change the status of its safety unit so that it reported straight to its chief executive, David R. Solow. Metrolink has failed to adopt even systems in use by its sister agency, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the Times said.

better for the Mariners. Though they kept their gusto through the final play, St. Monica’s varsity football team was unable to keep a handle on Laguna Beach in Saturday night’s contest, falling 4221 to the Breakers. Laguna Beach got out ahead early with a touchdown pass from juniuor quarterback Austin Paxson, caught by junior wide receiver Chris Paul. Though the Mariners answered two minutes later with a touchdown pass to junior wide receiver Kyle Farber, the Breakers would go on to score three more unanswered touchdowns, bringing the score to 29-7 by the end of the second half. From there on, it was the Breakers’ game. Although St. Monica would push back, scoring twice more before game’s end on major efforts from junior quarterback Matthew Partyka and wide receivers Daniel White, Jamal Young and Farber, their efforts would be trumped by big plays from Laguna’s Alec Jaffe, Paxson and Paul. In large part, the Breakers’ success moving the ball can be credited to their flymotion offense which frequently utilized a three-back set and two or more receivers. With one man always in motion, Laguna’s offense almost always sent two or more rushers to the line, creating the illusion of multiple points of attack and forcing the St. Monica secondary to plug holes rather than sending linebackers into coverage for the short pass. This, in turn, yielded much success on later screen-pass plays and the like. “We were able to do enough of what we needed to do. They stacked up our fly but we were able to go up the middle on them a bunch, and then we were able to pass on them pretty well, too,” said Laguna Beach offensive coordinator Jace Musselman. The game’s turnout, while upsetting to the Mariners, was a great triumph for the Breakers who had yet to seal a win before Saturday night. “I was glad to get a victory,” said Breakers coach Jonathan Todd, “The run was working and so was the pass, so it was good for us.” After the game in the locker room, St. Monica players credited the loss to, among other things, a breakdown in the team’s mentality. “We just got too psyched up for this one,” said Mariners captain and senior lineman Jack Porter “They came off a big loss last week and we thought we would have them beat.”

EDITOR IN CHIEF Kevin Herrera

Editor:

I just don’t understand. How can “health care reform” be such a scary thing? Do these people really want a system with high premiums, high deductibles, cancellations for pre-existing conditions, medical decisions based on cost savings for the insurer rather than the patient’s health needs? A system with such expensive premiums that about 50 million of us can’t afford health insurance? They want “Big Government” out of our lives and yet they think “Big Government” should have the right to decide that women cannot have an abortion — for any reason? Can they not understand the simple fact that the financial bailouts were made during the Bush Administration? Where were they marching then? How many times does the state of Hawaii have to show Obama’s birth certificate and confirm that Obama was born there, in the United States of America, for this simple fact to enter into their consciousness? Where were they marching when Bush lied about weapons of mass destruction, terrorist plots and ran our national debt into the stratosphere? Where are these people picketing to end our socialized military, socialized police forces, socialized fire service and all of our other socialized services? Where are these people protesting for all sorts of “liberal atrocities” like the 40 hour work week, 8-hour work day, child labor laws, Medicare, Social Security and all of the other horrible things that liberals with their “Big Government” has intruded into their lives? I guess these people want to live in a country where everything is owned by huge corporations, that can exploit them and force them to work in any way deemed unnecessary by the company. No “Big Government” rules about time spent working, safety, no rules about discrimination over age, gender, or any other human limitation. Companies that can simply get rid of you without any explanation or recourse. That controls their lives by charging outrageous sums for health care and then denies coverage when they need it. No regulation of simple necessities like food, water, gas, electricity — the companies should be able to charge whatever they want. A country that invades countries for no reason other than imperialism, kills millions of people and whose largest industry is war and death. A country with no health care for the elderly and young, no Social Security in old age. A country in which every man is for himself, no one helps anyone else and if you can’t pay, drop dead. A country in which every person is armed to the teeth. A county in which the leaders keep them under control by scaring them to death with all sorts of made up nonsense. I guess this is the dream of these people marching, I guess this is their idea of “the heart and soul of America.”

What’s the real cost of City Hall’s errors?

MANAGING EDITOR Daniel Archuleta daniela@smdp.com

STAFF WRITER Melody Hanatani melodyh@smdp.com

CHIEF PHOTOGRAPHER

IT SEEMS THAT LAST WEEK’S DEBACLE

concerning a misleading staff report to City Council wasn’t an isolated incident. Last Monday, I wrote about Housing and Economic Development Department Director Andy Agle’s request for City Council approval to negotiate exclusively with AMC Theaters to build and operate a new movie complex on Fourth Street. His report misrepresented AMC’s ability to close the Loews/AMC Broadway to meet City Council’s stipulation that a new, 2,100-seat movie complex wouldn’t add a large number of additional movie seats to Downtown. The staff report said AMC proposed to shutter the Loews/AMC Broadway and remove its 1,049 movie seats. There was one big problem: AMC doesn’t own the fourplex and as a lessee, can’t close it and eliminate its seats. Only AMC’s landlord can close the theaters when AMC’s lease expires in 2014. Then, the landlord could find another operator to take over (if AMC doesn’t renew) or remodel for non-cinema use. A second bid received from a partnership that included ArcLight Cinemas was summarily ignored because ArcLight has no theaters in Santa Monica and no opportunity to reduce Downtown’s overall seating capacity. In June, 2008, a similar slip-up occurred in obtaining approval of the development agreement for The Village at the Civic Center from the city’s Redevelopment Agency (made up of members of the City Council.) The Village is the large, mixed-use redevelopment project facing Ocean Avenue consisting of three parcels: Parcels A and B for 165 market rate condos and Parcel C for 160 affordable housing apartments. The lead developer of The Village is Related Companies of California. When it came to guarantees, Agle’s report stated that Related Companies of New York (the $5 billion parent company of which the California company is a subsidiary) would guarantee the obligations for all three parcels of the project when the guarantee actually excluded the affordable housing component, Parcel C. Without the guarantee, City Hall could be responsible for paying out claims on Parcel C against the developer and City Hall by third parties such as workers, vendors or other persons injured on or near the site. Even worse, if claims by City Hall against Related for non-performance on Parcel C aren’t covered or the California subsidiary “goes out of business” and breaches its contract to develop The Village, City Hall would be left holding the bag. When commercial real estate attorney Stanley Epstein found out Agle’s report said all three parcels were “guaranteed” when

they weren’t, he notified Agle, some agency/council members and the outside law firm for the agency/council of the error. A red-faced Agle verbally admitted to the agency/council at their June 10, 2008 meeting that his report was in error and only two parcels — A and B — were covered by the parent company’s guarantee. Even though Related volunteered to add Parcel C, the council/agency inexplicably turned down the “free” guarantee saying it didn’t need it. Unbelievable! City Hall could have eliminated all its exposure if the guarantee also covered all three parcels. In the meantime, neither Agle nor his superiors would offer a reason or explanation for stating in the report that Parcel C was included. Fearing the possibility of misconduct, Epstein requested an investigation of the matter and was stonewalled. Daily Press Editor-in-Chief Kevin Herrera and I met with Epstein who told us he didn’t think it was conceivable that the person (Agle) who negotiated the more substantial terms in the agreement wouldn’t know the exact terms of the guarantee or how such an error could be made especially when the guarantee document could be easily understood by a 14 year old. While we thought it was interesting, neither Herrera nor I saw sufficient proof of wrongdoing or an overriding public interest in the subject, therefore the “story” didn’t receive news coverage or a mention in my column. Agle’s serious misrepresentation of AMC’s ability to meet significant bid criteria on top of misstatements concerning The Village guarantee raises even more questions about how and why such dumb mistakes are made. With the AMC fiasco, there’s now a disturbing pattern of mistakes. Within 16 months, two major errors on big money projects under HED’s jurisdiction have been uncovered. It also appears that Agle may have swung his second strike — not counting how many other serious errors may be in reports submitted to City Council and the Redevelopment Agency. It’s city policy that staff reports be reviewed for accuracy by the city attorney, city manager and finance offices before being agendized and made public. None of these departments questioned Agle’s claim about the Loews/AMC Broadway closing or looked into the omissions involving The Village guarantee which makes the reason for the errors even more of a concern to residents. With projects costing the tens of millions of dollars, is anyone minding the store?

Bureaucratic power plays WITH ALL THE PARTISAN BICKERING

clogging up the airwaves lately and obscuring the more vital news of the day, it’s difficult at times to differentiate between what’s a legitimate concern and mere spin. However, if you can manage to get past the political punditry of Glenn Beck and other media noisemakers who have been sounding the alarm over the Obama administration’s use of so-called policy czars, there is legitimate cause for concern. During his nine months in office, Obama has appointed an AfPak czar, an AIDS czar, a car czar, a border czar, a climate czar, a cyber security czar, a green jobs czar, a pay czar, a drug czar, a health czar, a science czar and a war czar, and that’s just to name a few of the approximately 32 czars in the Obama White House. And, most likely, there’s more to come. While some of these individuals are vetted by Congress, many are not. The problem with the use of policy czars, a practice that dates back to Franklin D. Roosevelt and became very popular with George W. Bush, is that it allows the president to operate in secret, beyond the scrutiny of Congress. As a result, the reach and power of the Executive Branch has expanded well beyond constitutional limits. This is a legitimate concern. During Bush’s two terms in office, he managed to assemble an assorted and impressive range of powers and greatly increased the authority of the executive branch and the reach of the federal government. However, Obama was supposed to be an agent of change. Instead, as we’ve already seen, he seems to be marching in lockstep with his predecessor when it comes to matters of secrecy and attempts to centralize power in the office of the presidency. In fact, these policy czars are just another attempt to sidestep our system of checks and balances, which is perhaps one of the most innovative ideas of the Framers: the power of each branch to check the others was intended to ensure freedom and prevent tyranny. Just as importantly, it prevents one branch of government from dominating the others. One of the chief concerns of the Framers when they created a constitutional system that included checks and balances and a separation of powers was to significantly limit the power of the President. The essential ingredient to democratic government is accountability. Government

Clipping declawing practice The City Council recently directed staff to draft an ordinance that would ban the veterinary practice of declawing cats. So this week’s Q-Line question asks: Do you think declawing should be made illegal and why?

officials and government bureaucracy must be accountable to our representatives. If not, then we are not operating as a constitutional republic. Thus, those who dismiss concerns being raised over the czars as mere right-wing scare tactics are making a grave mistake. Even some within the Democratic Party have expressed reservations about these White House staffers. Indeed, as early as February 2009, Senator Robert C. Byrd (DW.Va.) voiced the concern that Obama’s appointment of White House “czars” to oversee federal policy amounted to a power grab by the executive branch. In a letter to Obama, Byrd stated: The rapid and easy accumulation of power by White House staff can threaten the constitutional system of checks and balances. At the worst, White House staff have taken direction and control of programmatic areas that are the statutory responsibility of Senate-confirmed officials. They have even limited access to the president by his own cabinet members. As presidential assistants and advisers, these White House staffers are not accountable for their actions to the Congress, to cabinet officials, and to virtually anyone but the president. They rarely testify before congressional committees, and often shield the information and decision-making process behind the assertion of executive privilege. In too many instances, White House staff have been allowed to inhibit openness and transparency, and reduce accountability. Mind you, this criticism comes from none other than the longest-serving Democratic senator--a member of Obama’s own party and a constitutional scholar who, according to Politico, “has always stood up for the legislative branch in its role in checking the power of the White House.” All of this comes down to accountability and transparency, something that was sorely lacking in the Bush administration. A democratic government is one that is accountable to the people. However, if that is not happening, then the president is more or less a king and the government nothing more than a dictatorship.

Finding a single cause of Colony Collapse Disorder seems unlikely, but the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service points to the possibility of a “perfect storm” of stresses that compromise the immune system of bees, disrupt their social system and make colonies more susceptible to disease.

Latest buzz on bees Dear EarthTalk Not long ago there were concerns about honey bees disappearing. Are the bees still disappearing, and if so do we know why and do we have a solution?

David Grand Rapids, Minn.

THE TOPIC OF DISAPPEARING HONEY

bees first cropped up in 2004 and by the spring of 2007 was all over the news. Thousands of commercial beekeepers across the U.S. and beyond were reporting in some cases that as many as two-thirds of their honey bees were flying away from their hives, never to return. What made the problem — dubbed “Colony Collapse Disorder” (CCD) — so unusual is that most traumas to bee colonies leaves bees dead in or around their hives, not mysteriously gone altogether. Strangely enough, there was no concrete evidence pointing to disease or predation or of mites that tend to attack bee hives. Some beekeepers reported that moths, animals and other bees were steering clear of the newly empty nests, leading to speculation that chemical contamination due to widespread use of pesticides might be to blame. But no smoking gun emerged and the mystery remains today. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service (ARS), which last year convened a multi-agency steering committee to assess the problem and find solutions, several factors could be combining to cause CCD. “Pesticides may be having unexpected negative effects on honey bees,” reports ARS, adding that as yet unknown parasites, pathogens or viruses could also be wreaking havoc on bee colonies. Studies have also indicated that poor management of populations of commercial honey

bees — including inadequate diet and long distance transportation — may play a role. In one study, researchers from Columbia University isolated the presence of a virus — the so-called Israeli Acute Paralysis Virus — in upwards of 96 percent of the hives studied that were affected by CCD. Other studies point to widespread use of Imidacloprid, a common grub-control chemical used on lawns and farms and which has already been banned in France due to its alleged effect on bees. But finding a single cause of CCD seems unlikely, and ARS researchers point to the possibility of “a perfect storm of existing stresses” weakening colonies to the point of collapse: “Stress…compromises the immune system of bees…and may disrupt their social system, making colonies more susceptible to disease.” Whatever the cause, CCD remains a real threat to agriculture. About a third of all American farm production is dependent upon the pollination efforts of commercially-raised honey bees. While diversifying the stock of insect pollinators beyond just one species of honey bee would certainly represent a step in the right direction, re-jiggering the nation’s agricultural system represents no small challenge. Not surprisingly perhaps, organic beekeepers have not experienced CCD, leading to speculation that overall greener management practices could be the answer even if direct causes are not determined. Meanwhile, efforts to genetically modify bees that are resistant to predators and pathogens could also prove fruitful, although such high tech solutions are still untested and could open up other cans of worms.

DELAWARE AVE.

WAUSAU, Wis. Waterways across the upper Midwest are increasingly plagued with ugly, smelly and potentially deadly blue-green algae, bloomed by drought and fertilizer runoffs from farm fields, that’s killed dozens of dogs and sickened many people. Aquatic biologists say it’s a problem that falls somewhere between a human health concern and a nuisance, but will eventually lead to more human poisoning. State officials are telling people who live on algaecovered lakes to close their windows, stop taking walks along the picturesque shorelines and keep their dogs from drinking the rank water. Peggy McAloon, 62, lives on Wisconsin’s Tainter Lake and calls the algae blooms the “cockroach on the water.” “It is like living in the sewer for three weeks. You gag. You cannot go outside,” she said. “We have pictures of squirrels that are dead underneath the scum and fish that are dead. ... It has gotten out of control because of the nutrient loads we as humans are adding to the waters.” Blue-green algae are common in waters but not every lake develops serious problems until plentiful “man-induced” nutrients like phosphorous arrive, said Jim Vennie, a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources expert. The toxins released by the algae can be deadly. Symptoms include rash, hives, runny nose, irritated eyes and throat irritation. No people have died in the U.S. from the algae’s toxins, according to Wayne Carmichael, a retired aquatic biologist and toxicology professor in Oregon. Many, however, have gotten sick: “Sooner or later, we are going to have more acute human poisoning,” Carmichael said. The scum has killed dozens of dogs over the years — including at least four in Oregon, three in Wisconsin and one in Minnesota this summer. Wisconsin wildlife experts are warning duck hunters with dogs to be extra cautious this fall. “If the water is pea-soup green, be sure to have clean water along to wash the dog off,” Vennie said. “Don’t let it drink the water.” Fewer than 100 lakes in Wisconsin typically have some problems with algae bloom each summer and the ones in western Wisconsin causing so much discomfort this year are being fueled by a perfect storm, Vennie said. The last month has seen little rain, warm, sunshiny days and little wind. The blooms just sit there, growing, then

decaying and smelling. “Some people say they have gotten nauseous and vomited from smelling it,” said Ken Schreiber, a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources water quality specialist. Officials have banned recreational activities at some lakes in Washington state because of blooms. And in Oregon, the bluegreen algae is the number one water quality issue, Carmichael said. Yet other countries have worse problems, Carmichael said, because many have waters with even more nutrients than exist in U.S. lakes. In France, a horse died on a beach in July after falling into some decaying algae sludge. Last year, the Chinese government brought in the army to remove the slimy growths so the Olympic sailing competition could be held. Stephanie Marquis, a spokesman for the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, said her agency had received 41 complaints related to health concerns with blue-green algae so far this season. Rashes, sore throats and eye irritation among the problems, she said. In Minnesota, Matt Lindon is a pollution control specialist for the state and he called 2009 a typical year for complaints about algae scums. But for some reason this summer, Bagley Lake in northwest Minnesota, an “historically clean lake,” generated respiratory and odor problems, he said. “It may be related to the water level or some new runoff source,” he said. Loren Hake, 71, has lived about two blocks from a Lake Menomin in western Wisconsin since 1963. He feels like a prisoner in his own home, isolated by a stench “something like a pig pen” that forces he and his wife to run the air conditioner although it’s not that hot because they can’t leave the windows open, he said. For the first time, the couple hasn’t set on an outside deck because of the smell from the algae-covered bay. “I don’t know what they can do about it,” Hake said. There’s little anybody can do besides wait for cooler temperatures, Vennie said. John Plaza, president of the Chetek Lakes Protection Association, which represents six lakes in northwest Wisconsin, said farm runoff, lawn fertilizers, septic systems and even ashes from leaves being burned on the shorelines are among factors contributing to the algae problems. “I have been a user of these lakes since 1962,” he said. “I have never experienced anything like this before. It’s nasty. People are saying we can’t live with this any more."

In Cheyenne, glass pile shows recycling challenges MEAD GRUVER Associated Press Writer

CHEYENNE, Wyo. After working out at a gym, Amy Mahaffy dropped off a half-dozen glass jars in a city recycling container before heading home. The containers however won’t end up being recycled any time soon. Their destination: A mound of glass at the city landfill, an ever-growing monument to the difficulty many communities across the country face in finding a market for a commodity that’s too cheap for its own good. “We are stockpiling it in a desperate search for a market,” landfill foreman Monty Landers said. Cheyenne hasn’t recycled the glass it collects — 9 tons a week — for years. Instead, the city has been putting it in the landfill, using it to surround the concrete-walled wells that pump toxic fluids out of the dump. Told where the glass bottles and jars that she diligently rinses out end up, Mahaffy seemed dismayed. “I don’t think that’s what they should be doing with it,” she said. “I think they should be recycling it.” The economics of glass recycling have been marginal for some time. Nationwide, only about 25 percent of glass containers are recycled. That’s compared to 31 percent of plastic containers, 45 percent of aluminum cans and 63 percent of steel cans, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. In northern Idaho, Kootenai County gave up collecting glass last year. In Oregon, which was the first of 11 states to adopt a bottle deposit law in 1971, Deschutes County stockpiled 1,000 tons of glass at its landfill before finally finding a use for it a couple years ago — as fill beneath an area for collecting compost. Glass also has piled up at the landfill serving Albuquerque, N.M., where officials this year announced that a manufacturer of water-absorbing horticultural stones would eventually use up their stockpiles. New York City gave up glass recycling from 2002 to 2004 because officials decided it was too costly. In a sense, glass ought to be the perfect commodity to recycle. It can be recycled an infinite number of times. Melting down one glass bottle and making another isn’t particularly complicated or especially costly. The challenge is that the main ingredient in glass, sand, is plentiful and cheap — often cheaper than cullet, which is glass that has been prepared for recycling. Used glass must be sorted by color and cleaned before it can be crushed into cullet that is suitable for recycling into new containers. That contributes to much of the cost of recycling glass, said Joe Cattaneo, president of the Glass Packaging Institute in Alexandria, Va. “It’s not just a glass company buying it from your municipal waste company, or

recycling company,” Cattaneo said. “Some entity has to clean it so it meets the specifications of mixing it with sand, soda ash and limestone.” Another cost is transportation. The farther away a community is from glass processors and container manufacturers, he said, the more expensive it is to recycle it. Cheyenne has been in touch with glass recyclers in Colorado but has yet to find a feasible arrangement for glass recycling, said Dennis Pino, director of the city sanitation department. “If we’re going to try and do something that’s going to put us in the hole, it’s not a good idea, especially with the economy,” Pino said. One of the region’s largest glass recyclers, an O-I Inc. bottling manufacturing plant, is only 50 miles south of Cheyenne in Windsor, Colo. That plant gets the vast majority of its cullet not from Wyoming or even Colorado, but from the 11 states with bottle deposit laws, company spokeswoman Stephanie Johnston said. Bottles returned for 5-cent or 10-cent deposits are kept sorted by color and usually haven’t been mixed with other recyclable materials or trash. As a result, cullet produced from such glass is more likely to meet the company’s very high standards — completely free of paper, plastic, metal or other contaminants, she said. “Our interest in recycled content is high. But the way the system is currently set up, it’s hard for us to get quality, clean cullet right now,” Johnston said. “We’re trying to find some ways to increase the amount of quality cullet from the states that don’t have bottle bills.” Johnson said O-I prefers to use cullet rather than sand because cullet requires less energy to melt down. O-I has billed the 4-year-old facility as the most modern of its kind in the world. Cheyenne was runner-up in the race to land the plant in 2003. Within sight of its landfill glass, Cheyenne has begun building a recycling center that will handle a variety of materials including glass. The city still needs to complete two more leachate wells at the landfill, Pino said, and after that the center should be able to process the rest of the stockpiled glass. Mahaffy said that’s good enough for her to keep recycling her glass. “If they’re keeping it someplace separate where they could recycle it in the future, that’s one thing,” she said. “But if they’re not ever planning on recycling it, that irritates me.” The city plans to buy a glass pulverizer and is considering at least two uses for the glass it plans to grind into a fine consistency — in place of sand in road construction and at playgrounds, Pino said. “It’s not dangerous. It’s been tested — it works great,” he said. “We don’t want to just keep stockpiling it. We want to find another use for it."

Terry thinks activity should be simple, fun FROM CP PAGE 1 of a series of questions that can only be solved by getting outside and walking around to find the answers. Each solution corresponds to a letter and the letters spell out the puzzle’s final solution. “Any type of physical movement is fun for me, but that isn’t the case for some other folks,” Terry said. “There needs to be another element to it that makes it more interesting.” Terry first tried out this concept with her staff at UCLA, giving people five days to complete a puzzle on campus. Ordinarily, WRABBLE should take about an hour and a half to complete, but many people only have 15 minute breaks and lunch hours to find the answers. It is integrating more movement like this into the day-to-day that Terry believes is important. “You don’t have to join a gym, you don’t have to make things complicated,” Terry said. “You just have to restore a little bit of movement and physical activity to your daily life.” As someone who has been involved with UCLA’s recreation department ever since she was a sociology student at the university, Terry’s athletic experience is expansive. The former Bruin rower has taught classes on everything from yoga to basic movement, seeing fundamental activity as the key to staying healthy. “If we go back to basics, back to exploring and just simple human movement and making it fun, you can achieve fitness,” Terry said. “When you are physically active, those feelings translate into other aspects of your life.” With WRABBLE, Terry hopes that she will inspire other people, including Santa Monica residents, to embrace this type of lifestyle. In fact, over Labor Day weekend, Terry created a Santa Monica edition of the puzzle

in honor of the pier’s 100th birthday. Having lived in the city for over 11 years, Terry was inspired by local sites and landmarks, including many that go unnoticed when traveling by car. Through activities such as walking, running or biking, Terry feels that local residents can utilize the puzzles on weekends or during work breaks to exercise and explore. She even hopes to create new WRABBLE puzzles to reflect what’s going on in different areas of Santa Monica. “It can expose people to new places that they have never seen,” Terry said. “The beach is my route for the most part, so exploring other parts will be interesting for me.” On a typical Saturday, for example, Terry leaves her apartment on Third Street and heads straight for a walk on the beach, followed by a yoga class at Exhale Spa in Downtown. From there, it’s back to the beach to catch some sun and body board before playing a game of paddle tennis in Venice Beach. By the end of the day, Terry is ready to see a movie or grab a bite to eat with friends. “You have to have an energy balance,” Terry said. Despite her myriad activities, Terry recognizes that not everyone is willing to get active right away. In a fitness course she teaches at UCLA, Terry always tells her students that these things take time. “Be open to the information I’m giving you,” Terry tells them. “Somewhere down the line when something else happens and you think that might be a good idea for [you] to improve [your] health, then that’s the time for you to implement it.” There is no secret to Terry’s fitness philosophy. “Fitness is not rocket science,” Terry said. “Just get out and explore.” news@smdp.com

Teen stabbed following Samohi game BY DAILY PRESS STAFF CORSAIR FIELD A 17-year-old Inglewood resident was stabbed multiple times Friday as he was leaving the Santa Monica High School football game at Santa Monica College’s Corsair Filed, police said. The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries and was transported to a local hospital for treatment. No suspect was arrested and no weapon was recovered, said SMPD

Sgt. Jay Trisler. The attack does not appear to be gang related, Trisler said. Investigators on Saturday were still questioning those who attended the game versus Venice High School. Samohi lost the game. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Santa Monica Police Department at (310) 458-8427. news@smdp.com

Venice found the upper hand early in the second half with a 73-yard touchdown run by senior running back Aaron Jones, tying the game at 14 with 7:15 remaining in the third period. On the following offensive drive, Santa Monica was forced to punt on fourth and two, at which point Venice junior wide receiver Teondray Caldwell returned the kick for a 60-yard touchdown, breaking two tackles and shaking two more defenders along the way. With the score resting at 21-14 in favor of Venice, Santa Monica would drive forward again, ramming in a touchdown on third and 8 with a pass to senior wide receiver Mike Smith. Safron also made major completions to Featherstone and was helped by runs from senior backs Shane Jones and Luke Zelon. The extra point was no good, leaving Venice in the lead, 21-20. The Gondoliers only needed eight plays to charge back up the field to make it 28-21 shortly after the start of the fourth quarter, pushed down the field with major plays by McNeal and senior running back Aaron Jones. With an eight point defecit and 9:02 remaining in the fourth period, Samohi needed a drive and fast. Safron, with receivers stacked to his right, led the Vikings up the field, frequently rolling out of the pocket to his strong side and passing up the sideline to Zelon, Featherstone and Smith. On a couple of key plays, including that which brought Santa Monica its fourth touchdown, Safron threw cross-field to Smith, confusing Venice

defenders after heavy strong-side throws. Moments later, a trick play landed a pass from Zelon in Safron’s hands for a two-point conversion, tying the game once more at 2828 with 2:15 left to play. With just moments remaining, Venice senior quarterback Alfonso Medina, Jones and Caldwell rushed up the field, combining for 65 yards in eight plays and planting the Gondoliers in position for senior kicker Connor Gil’s successful 25-yard successful field goal attempt for the win. “I thought it would be better to get (Safron) going on his strong side and get into those routes. And it was working, obviously,” said Vikings coach Travis Clark. Clark explained that Safron had injured his thumb during Thursday’s practice, and that while Vencie had successfully cracked down on the strong-side movement by crashing with safety Gibran ZahediMitchell, Safron was able to successfully throw across the field at key moments. “It’s all internal,” Clark added later. “I’d take that kid over anyone else in high school. Some of those things are just innate for quarterbacks. Safron’s a good kid.” Though the Gondoliers took home the rivalry win this year, Venice coach Angelo Gasca could only tip his hat to his players and the opposing Vikings. “It was a heck of a game. I give a lot of credit to Travis and his team, but we had a lot of big plays on offense,” Gasca said. “(Medina) is a senior and he’s just a big-time player I think. He came up big at the right time for us.”

Migrant kids take long step from fields to schools CHRISTINE ARMARIO Associated Press Writer

OCALA, Fla. Elizabeth Pineda climbs out of bed, her 4-year-old son Adrian asleep nearby. She lays out a tiny pair of shorts and a white T-shirt for his first day of school, gathers her purse and tiptoes outside. Her cousin will get the boy up and off to class in a few hours. It is 4 a.m. and only a few solitary street lamps light the darkened roads in this rural central Florida community. She climbs into an old white Ford work van and starts the engine. Pineda, the 20-year-old daughter of migrant farmworkers, is heading to the peanut fields. It’s a story repeated in migrant families across the United States: A chain of labor that stretches from one generation to the next. As a little girl, Pineda helped pick oranges from the lowest branches as her father worked from a ladder overhead. As a single mother, she has sometimes had to bring Adrian along as well — letting him play with toy cars in the van while she picked peanuts nearby. Private childcare is too expensive for most of these families, and the alternatives are limited. The government offers a Head Start program for the children of migrant and seasonal laborers. But it serves only a fraction of those eligible, according to estimates by providers and the U.S. Department of

Health and Human Services. Waiting lists stretch hundreds of children long in parts of the country. Those who can’t get in go to friends’ care, or to state-run pre-kindergartens or to the fields, where they are exposed to the heat, insects, chemicals and heavy machinery and where, each year, some children are hurt or even killed. In this farming town, two Head Start centers have opened in the last year. And with a $26 million boost for Early Head Start in federal stimulus funds and separate $10 million expansion, nonprofit organizations around the country are hoping to expand enrollment of migrant infants and toddlers by thousands more. The goal: Besides providing a safe haven, the programs offer access to basic social services, help teach English and aim to set these children on a path toward parity with their peers in kindergarten. Pineda has enrolled Adrian. Her dream: That he never has to do what she does. How many young children follow their parents into America’s fields isn’t known. Care providers estimate that just under one-fifth of children eligible for Migrant and Seasonal Head Start are enrolled (about 35,000 in 2007, according to the most current national figures). Yvette Sanchez-Fuentes, executive director of the National Migrant and Seasonal Head Start Association in Washington, said she accepted the estimate “just because of the amount of wait lists that they have across

the country.” In South Texas, there are 400 children on the waiting list of the largest provider of migrant Head Start services. During the peak season in Michigan, the waiting list sometimes exceeds 200 children, many of them vulnerable infants and toddlers, officials said. Parents have become better educated about the dangers of the fields, SanchezFuentes said, but still there are tragedies. In Newport, Tenn., Arnulfo Hernandez and his wife, Esmeralda, took their 11month-old son, Jesse, with them to the tomato fields in 2007. Other migrant families had encouraged them to enroll him in a Head Start program, but the young parents, then just 22 and 20, were reluctant to do so. “They were very nervous about being apart from their baby, and we do hear about raids,” said J Davis, the nonprofit Telamon Corp.’s Tennessee state director. “’What’s going to happen if I’m away from my child and immigration shows up and I disappear?’” The couple put Jesse in the back of their van, rolled down the windows and left the back door up, according to a report filed by the Cocke County Sheriff ’s Office. They tied a thin string used to keep tomato plants upright from a seat in the car to a belt loop on Jesse’s pants to keep him from wandering away, Chief Detective Robert Caldwell said. Esmeralda Hernandez told detectives she checked on her son every five minutes. But at one point, the couple found Jesse unresponsive. He’d gotten his neck tangled in the string and strangled, Caldwell said. “They were devastated,” Davis said. “We were all devastated.” In Polk City, Fla., 2-year-old Ruben Velasquez crawled out of a truck as his family picked oranges in 2006. He was between the vehicle and a flatbed trailer when his 10year-old brother moved the truck forward, crushing him. “Every so often, you do hear horror stories,” said Lourdes Villanueva, director of farmworker advocacy with the Redlands Christian Migrant Association. “But the potential for that happening is all the time.” The path Pineda drives to the fields is long and, at times, jolting. She stops first outside a beige trailer and honks. A wrinkled, groggy-eyed man in flip-flops emerges and languidly pulls himself into the van. She picks up nearly a dozen more workers, the youngest just 13. They are tired and silent. Several are barefoot. The van whips through overgrown grass in the darkness, no visible destination in sight. It’s usually her father’s job to drive the laborers, but he is sick. So the duty falls on her. Pineda has long black hair and wears a pair of light-blue jeans with sequined crosses on the back pockets. Growing up, she went to eight different schools, depending on where her parents were traveling to work. They mostly stayed in Florida, but also went to South Carolina, where her father worked in the tobacco fields. She managed to earn As and Bs in school. Then, at 16, she got pregnant. After graduating from high school, she went to work in the fields. She has held other jobs — gas station attendant, restaurant hostess — but says she couldn’t get enough hours. Now, with the recession, she says there is no other work to be found around Ocala, about 95 miles north of Tampa. And so she harvests peanuts, an especially labor-intensive crop, with low-growing plants that offer no shelter from the sun. The first few days of

the season, Pineda says her muscles ache so much she can hardly sit and stand when she gets home. The fields are no place for a child, she believes, and yet when she couldn’t find someone to care for her son she often took him with her. A Migrant and Seasonal Head Start program opened up nearby when he was 3, but Pineda says there wasn’t space for him. This year, a second center opened up in Ocala, and Adrian got in. “Hopefully he never has to go to the fields and pick,” Pineda says. Research on early learning has shown the importance of building basic cognitive and social skills from an early age. Children from low-income families know about 3,000 words by age 6, while those from high-income backgrounds know 20,000, a 1995 study estimated. Children from privileged families hear millions more words by age 3 than those from less affluent backgrounds, according to a 2003 study. Migrant children in particular are a vulnerable population, as they often attend more than one school each year, and sometimes in different states, meaning academic requirement vary. “These children do not have a typical home,” Villanueva said. “Many times, there’s two or three families living together in one trailer, so there’s no room for a bookshelf, for example.” They may also feel pressure to help contribute to the family income and work in the fields. In some states, farmers can employ children as young as 10 or 12 outside school hours. When the Head Start centers open they are sometimes the children’s first link to social services. Villanueva, who is based in central Florida, recalls seeing children who had suffered so many untreated ear infections that scar tissue had left them with hearing loss. Other young children had teeth that needed to be extracted. The immigration debate inevitably trickles into any attempt to provide services. In Bybee, Tenn., about 70 miles southeast of Nashville, a 72-year-old farmer decided to lease land for a migrant Head Start day care program in 1999 in order to give his workers’ children a place to go. His neighbors responded with an angry march, threatening letters and harassing phone calls. Then his hay barn was set on fire, in what investigators said was an act of arson and possible hate crime. No arrests have been made in the case. “I never bothered nobody — I just wanted to help them kids,” James Ellison said at the time. Today there are over 450 centers in 40 states, and funding has been increasing in recent years. About $288 million was allocated for the program in the 2007 fiscal year. This year, stimulus money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act could increase enrollment by as many as 8,000 infants and toddlers, Sanchez-Fuentes said. Many of the students are U.S. citizens, she added — “kids that are going to go into our public schools and then hopefully into our universities.” Growers mainly support migrant Head Start initiatives. “As a general rule, farm employers would prefer not to have young children around the field,” said Ron Gaskill, senior director of congressional relations for labor and environment for the American Farm Bureau. Davis of Telamon recalled a recent plea to make room for more children, so they wouldn’t go to the fields.

NY governor pushed to quit, goes it alone MICHAEL GORMLEY Associated Press Writer

ALBANY, N.Y. David Paterson thrived politically as a state senator, working his way up in a nearly all-white Albany political structure. Now, he’s governor, and things have never been worse. For nearly a year, Paterson, the state’s first black governor, has been battered by a faltering economy and with poll numbers hovering at record lows. This week, he learned President Barack Obama’s administration is worried he’ll drag other Democrats down in 2010 if he runs for a full term, perhaps even threatening the narrow margin the party needs to ward off filibusters in the U.S. Senate. These days, Paterson finds himself very much alone. Paterson said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Obama never directly asked him to step aside, and he wouldn’t discuss what presidential aides may have told him confidentially. But the legally blind governor added he’s heard the message from Democrats in New York and Washington: “I’m blind, I’m not oblivious.” “But I am running for governor,” he said. “I don’t think I am a drag on the party. I think I’m fighting for the priorities of my party.” At an Associated Press event in Syracuse last week, Paterson said that when he was Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s lieutenant governor, he had never envisioned becoming the state’s chief executive. “I had this grand plan that Hillary Clinton was going to become president,” he said. “Maybe the governor would appoint me to the Senate.” In January 2008, that was the plan. Paterson worked to draw black voters to Sen. Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. On TV screens and front pages, he was wedged next to President Bill Clinton and closer to the senator than Chelsea. Democrats thought it was a well-deserved fit for Paterson as a reward for bringing the party close to controlling the state Senate for the first time in decades. Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch said Paterson was capable, highly intel-

ligent and courageous. Paterson was the dashing statesman in an otherwise plodding Albany. He was smart, collegial, a reformer, ambitious and funny — on purpose. Now, for many, he’s a punch line. Even Paterson is starting to talk about exit scenarios. “I don’t think anyone who is clearly hurting their party would take an action like running when it is going to make the party lose,” he said. Then he added a shot: “I’m not sure those that are always calling for loyalty in the Democratic Party have been loyal themselves.” Albany’s top two legislative Democrats — Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and Senate Conference Leader John Sampson — last week committed to Paterson “right now” and “until otherwise known.” Another Democratic pal, Rep. Gregory Meeks of Queens, called Paterson “my governor, my friend, who has done a relatively good job.” For a sitting governor, that praise is a few shades shy of faint. All of this comes days after Washington Democrats sent a clear message that Paterson should step aside for the popular Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. They are concerned that a weak top of the ticket could hurt other Democrats, including Kirsten Gillibrand, whom Paterson appointed to fill Clinton’s Senate seat. A Paterson run could even entice Republican savior-in-waiting Rudy Giuliani to run for governor. “He needs a game-changer,” said Lee Miringoff of the Marist College poll, which found Paterson had a 17 percent approval rating. Many, however, say the game is over. Last week’s criticism and an apparent snub by Obama who gushed over Cuomo during a New York visit was embarrassing publicly for Paterson. Worse, it may be lethal financially, giving Democratic campaign contributors cover to cut checks to Cuomo and, with the apparent blessing of the nation’s first black president, not worry about a backlash. That will make Paterson’s decision for him. It was the same force that made Cuomo exit the 2002 race for governor as money and support flowed to then-state Comptroller Carl McCall in his losing campaign to unseat Gov. George Pataki.

Without friends, a free flow of campaign cash and the contacts made from a previous campaign for governor, Paterson is mostly alone. Inheriting the job 18 months ago when Spitzer resigned amid a prostitution probe and governing through the worst fiscal crisis in state history left him saying “no” to powerful, well-funded special interests, while repeatedly committing his own political missteps, including the ugly process to replace Clinton with Gillibrand. Paterson angered the Kennedy family when he didn’t embrace Caroline Kennedy for the job and a Paterson operative later leaked unsubstantiated rumors about her in an attempt to show she was ill suited. He is left with a message that is not much more than his character — which polls show New Yorkers like — and how he feels he kept the state from worse fiscal fates faced by other states. So Paterson says he’s “clearly running” even as Democrats urge him to reconsider. “You don’t give up because you have low poll numbers,” he told “Meet the Press.” “If everybody can tell what the future is, why didn’t they tell me I’d be governor? I could have used the heads-up."

for the Dodgers: Jonathan Broxton on the mound, a three-run lead in the ninth inning against the dismal Pirates and an NL West title to celebrate as soon as they closed it out. Instead, easy turned into excruciating as Los Angeles let a victory slip away when the majors’ second-worst team pulled off a fourrun rally aided by several defensive lapses. Right fielder Andre Ethier misplayed Lastings Milledge’s two-run single for an error that allowed the winning run to score, and last-place Pittsburgh beat the Dodgers 6-5 to prevent Los Angeles from clinching the NL West title on Sunday. “You’ve got to get 27 outs. That’s why baseball’s a little crazy sometimes,” said shortstop Rafael Furcal, who committed one of two Dodgers errors in the ninth. Los Angeles, already assured a playoff spot, went ahead 5-2 with three runs in the ninth against Matt Capps (4-8), only to let the Pirates stage their best rally of a miserable season. Pittsburgh, four losses from 100, won for only the fifth time in 29 games. “As many times as you snatch it back from somebody else, you have to understand those things happen,” Dodgers manager Joe Torre said. “It’s not easy to take, but that’s why you watch every pitch.” The Dodgers went into the game with a magic number of two for clinching the division crown, but it essentially was one because Colorado would lose any tiebreaker with them. After they lost, the Dodgers sat quietly in front of their lockers watching the Cardinals-Rockies game, hoping for a St. Louis victory and a delayed celebration. Instead, the Rockies won 4-3, meaning the Dodgers must win Monday afternoon if

they want to leave Pittsburgh as division champions. The Rockies are off Monday. Furcal wasn’t among those staying around after the Dodgers lost. “I don’t care about that game,” Furcal said. “I care about us. I’ll go back and think about the (bad) game we played.” Broxton (7-2) gave up singles to pinchhitters Delwyn Young and Brandon Moss before Andrew McCutchen grounded into a force out. Andy LaRoche’s infield single scored Young, making it 5-3, and McCutchen moved to third when Furcal threw wildly for an error. Furcal also thought he should have turned a double play on McCutchen’s grounder. After Garrett Jones was intentionally walked for the third time, Milledge — who stranded five runners while going hitless in his first four at-bats — lined a two-run single into right field to tie it. Jones kept running on the play and scored when the ball went under Ethier’s glove and rolled to the warning track. “The Dodgers have a great team and they’re going to do great things in the postseason,” Milledge said. “For us to score four runs in the bottom of the ninth inning against that team and one of the best closers in baseball is quite an accomplishment. It’s something we can feel good about, something that can give us a little confidence going into the offseason.” Los Angeles went into the seventh trailing Pirates rookie Daniel McCutchen 2-1, but shortstop Luis Cruz fumbled a potential double-play grounder by pinch-hitter Jim Thome and settled for getting one out as James Loney scored the tying run. The Pirates brought in their closer, Capps, to pitch the ninth, but he immediately gave up singles to Loney, Ronnie Belliard and Russell Martin that put the Dodgers ahead.

NFL

Lewis is big hero for Vikings JON KRAWCZYNSKI AP Sports Writer

MINNEAPOLIS It was almost by accident that Minnesota Vikings receiver Greg Lewis was in position to make one of the greatest catches you’ll ever see. If Percy Harvin had not missed two practices earlier this week with migraine headaches, Lewis might have been inactive for a third straight game. If Harvin had not run a go route on the previous play and come to the sideline a little winded, Lewis might not have been inserted for just his fourth play of the game. And if Vikings coach Brad Childress had not been so familiar with Lewis from their days together in Philadelphia years ago, the seventh-year veteran may have not been given the chance to continue his career in Minnesota. All of those factors converged Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, and Lewis took advantage. With the Vikings trailing by four points, Lewis ran the tight rope along the back of the end zone, leaped over safety Mark Roman to snatch Brett Favre’s dart out of the air and somehow kept both feet inbounds for a 32-yard score to give the Vikings a 27-24 lead with 2 seconds to play. “He made a great catch, an incredible play and a play that’s really responsible for getting us a win,” Vikings center John

Sullivan said. “So we’re glad he’s here.” That wasn’t the case just a few weeks ago. Childress abruptly released popular veteran Bobby Wade three days before the season opener to sign Lewis, whom Childress coached as an assistant in Philadelphia for three seasons. Receiver Bernard Berrian wore Wade’s No. 19 practice jersey in the locker room that day as a show of support for his friend, and many were wondering what the new guy could bring to the table that Wade did not. Lewis understood the skepticism. He scored on a 30-yard reception from Donovan McNabb in the Eagles’ loss to the Patriots in the Super Bowl in 2005, but it has been an otherwise nondescript career for an undersized, wiry player Childress described as “a skinny kind of piece of gristle.” “I’ve never really been a star in the NFL or in college, really,” said Lewis, who was undrafted out of Illinois. “I was always the third or fourth guy. I’m used to being in and out or whatnot, so it’s not a big deal to me. I just want to win.” The Eagles traded him to New England in March, where Lewis survived the final cuts of the preseason and thought he had it made with the Patriots. But he was cut a few days later, a move that stunned him and his family. “Unfortunately, it didn’t work out for me up there,” he said.

■ In March 1996, an 18-year-old dockworker at Roadway Express in Dallas was arrested at a local Western Union office and charged with forgery after trying to cash a check made out to his employer. The man produced a homemade photo ID that gave his name as Mr. "Roadway V. Express." After questioning him, the Western Union manager said, "OK, Mr. Express, I'll be right back (with the money)," but went into another room and called the police. ■ A male Swedish college student, Ragnar Bengtsson, 26, has begun pumping his breasts at three-hour intervals in a 90-day experiment to see if he can produce milk. If he succeeds, he said, it could prove "very important for men's ability to get much closer to their children at an early stage." A professor of endocrinology told the daily Aftonbladet that male lactation without hormone treatment might produce "a drop or two," but suggested that men instead consider offering their breasts to babies as a matter of comfort and warmth, rather than as food. Bengtsson, who will report regularly on his progress via Stockholm's TV8 channel and the station's Web site, acknowledged that his timetable would sometimes require that he pump during classes.
