Chevron takes blame for
Brazilian coast oil spil

Officials estimate
more than 110,000
gallons of oil spilled
SAO PAULO (AP) - An ongo-
ing oil spill off the Brazilian
coast occurred because Chev-
ron underestimated the pres-
sure in an underwater reservoir,
the head of the company's Brazil
operations said yesterday.
George Buck, chief operating
officer for the Brazilian division
of the San Ramon, California-
based company, told foreignjour-
nalists that Chevron "takes full
responsibility for this incident,"
and that "any oil on the surface
of the ocean is unacceptable to
But Buck rejected accusa-

tions the company did not notify
authorities quickly enough after
the leak was detected and that it
did not properly manage cleanup
Chevron was drilling an
appraisal well about 230 miles
(370 kilometers) off the north-
eastern coast of Rio de Janeiro
when the leak began Nov.7.
The drilling fluid that is
pumped down the center of
the drill as it works, lubricat-
ing and stabilizing the pressure
of the bore hole, was not heavy
enough to counter the pressure
coming from the oil reservoir,
Buck said.
That caused crude to rush
upward and eventually escape
through a breach inthe bore hole
and leak into the surrounding

The oil then made its way to
the ocean floor and has since
leaked through at least seven nar-
row fissures, all within 160 feet
(50 meters) of the well head on
the ocean floor, Buck said.
Brazil's National Petroleum
Agency has said it's possible more
than 110,000 gallons of oil have
spilled into the Atlantic Ocean.
Buck would not provide an esti-
mate on the total size of the leak,
but said the agency figure was "in
the ballpark."
He added that the slick cur-
rently contains about 756 gallons
(2,860 liters) of oil, a figure not
confirmed by Brazilian regula-
tors, though they have said it has
been significantly reduced since
Chevron successfully carried out
the first stage of capping the well

McDonald's drops Minn. egg
supplier over cruelty charges

FDA cites 'serious
violations' at five
Sparboe Farms
McDonald's Corp. said Friday it
has dropped a Minnesota-based
egg supplier after an animal
rights group released an under-
cover video of operations at the
egg producer's farms in three
The video by Mercy for Ani-
mals shows what the group calls
animal cruelty at five Sparboe
Farms facilities in Iowa, Min-
nesota and Colorado. Its images
include a worker swinging a bird
around by its feet, hens packed
into cramped cages, male chicks
being tossed into plastic bags to
suffocate and workers cutting
off the tips of chick's beaks.

"The behavior on tape is dis-
turbing and completely unac-
ceptable. McDonald's wants to
assure our customers that we
demand humane treatment of
animals by our suppliers," Bob
Langert, McDonald's vice presi-
dent for sustainability, said in a
The move also followed a
warning letter to Sparboe Farms
dated Wednesday from the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration
that said inspectors found "seri-
ous violations" at five Sparboe
facilities of federal regulations
meant to prevent salmonella.
The warning said eggs from
those facilities "have been pre-
pared, packed, or held under
insanitary conditions whereby
they may have become contami-
nated with filth, or whereby
they may have been rendered
injurious to health."
Sparboe Companies LLC
issued a statement calling the

video "shocking" and saying an
internal investigation identified
four employees "who were com-
plicit in this disturbing activity"
and were fired this month.
"I was deeply saddened to see
the story because this isn't who
Sparboe Farms is," owner and
president Beth Sparboe Schnell
said in a statement posted on a
company website. "Acts depict-
ed in the footage are totally
unacceptable and completely
at odds with our values as egg
farmers. In fact, they are in
direct violation of our animal
care code of conduct, which all
of our employees read, sign and
follow each day."
Sparboe, which is headquar-
tered in Litchfield, also said on
the website that it has made
management changes, taken
corrective actions sought by the
FDA, and begun retraining all
barn workers in proper animal
care procedures.

University chancellor
Katehi blamed for
police intervention
testers sitting on the ground sup-
porting the Occupy Wall Street
movement on the campus of the
University of California, Davis
took a face full of pepper spray
at close range from an officer in
riot gear in an incident that was
captured on cellphone video and
spread virally across the Internet
UC Davis Chancellor Linda
Katehi described the video imag-
es as "chilling" and said she was
forming a task force to investigate
even as a faculty group called for
her resignation because of the Fri-
day police action.
However, a law enforcement
official who watched the clip
called the use of force "fairly stan-
dard police procedure."
In the video, an officer dispas-
sionately pepper-sprays a line
of several sitting protesters who
flinch and cover their faces but
remain passive with their arms
interlocked as onlookers shriek

and scream out for the officer to
"The use of the pepper spray as
shown on the video is chilling to
us all and raises many questions
about how best to handle situa-
tions like this," Chancellor Linda
Katehi said in a message posted on
the school's website Saturday.
The protest was held in support
of the overall Occupy Wall Street
movement and in solidarity with
protesters at the University of Cal-
ifornia, Berkeley who were jabbed
by police with batons on Nov. 9.
The UC Davis video images,
which were circulated on You-
Tube and widely elsewhere
online, prompted immediate out-
rage among faculty and students,
with the Davis Faculty Associa-
tion saying in a letter Saturday
that Katehi should resign.
"The Chancellor's role is to
enable open and free inquiry, not
to suppress it," the faculty associa-
tion said in its letter.
It called Katehi's authorization
of police force a "gross failure of
At a news conference later on
Saturday, Katehi said what the
video shows is "sad and really
very inappropriate." The events
surrounding the protest have
been hard on her personally, but

she had no plans to resign, she
"I do not think that I have vio-
lated the policies of the institu-
tion. I have worked personally
very hard to make this campus a
safe campus for all," she said.
Katehi remained in a media
room for more than two hours
after the news conference, even-
tually walking to an SUV past a
silent group of students nearly
three blocks long, many of them
holding up signs calling for her to
step down, the Sacramento Bee
The statewide Council of UC
Faculty Associations issued a
statement Saturday saying "We
are outraged that the administra-
tions of UC campuses are using
police brutality to suppress dis-
sent, free speech and peaceful
Charles J. Kelly, a former Balti-
more Police Department lieuten-
ant who wrote the department's
use of force guidelines, said pep-
per spray is a "compliance tool"
that can be used on subjects who
do not resist, and is preferable to
simply lifting protesters.
"When you start picking up
human bodies, you risk hurting
them," Kelly said. "Bodies don't
have handles on them."
