Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
856 North Delaware St.San Mateo, CA 94401
By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar
WASHINGTON — Three years,two elections,and one SupremeCourt decision after PresidentBarack Obama signed theAffordable Care Act,its promise ohealth care for the uninsured may bedelayed or undercut in much of thecountry becauseof entrenchedopposition frommanyRepublican stateleaders.In half thestates,mainlyled byDemocrats,offi-cials are racing deadlines to connectuninsured residents to coverage nowonly months away. In others it’s asif “Obamacare— signed Mar. 23,2010 — had never passed.Make no mistake,the federal gov-ernment will step in and create newinsurance markets in the 26 mostlyred states declining to run their own.Just like the state-run markets inmostly Democratic-led states,thefeds will start signing up customersOct. 1 for coverage effective Jan. 1.But they need a broad cross-sectionof people,or else the pool will bestuck with what the governmentcalls the “sick and worried”— thecostliest patients.Insurance markets,or exchanges,are one prong of Obama’s law,pro-viding subsidized private coveragefor middle-class households whocurrently can’t get their own. Theother major piece is a Medicaidexpansion to serve more low-income people. And at least 13states have already indicated theywill not agree to that.

Good boy gone bad? JustinBieber’s adult problems
NEW YORK — In just four years,Justin Bieber has gone from fieldinginnocuous questionsabout his haircut todenying that he’s indesperate need of rehab. Bieber’sgrown up and intotabloid territory,withhis recent troublesmaking some ques-tion whether he’s justthe latest teen stargone wild.In what could have been his worstweek ever,the 19-year-old pop star strug-gled with his breathing and fainted back-stage at a London show,was taken to ahospital and then was caught on cameraclashing with a paparazzo. Days earlier,he was booed by his beloved fans whenhe showed up late to a concert.Those incidents come after photos of Bieber appearing to smoke marijuana hitthe Web,and some headlines have sug-gested that the ultra-popular star is goingthrough a famous Britney Spears-stylemeltdown.Others suggest he’s struggling with amore common condition:being a teenag-er.Donnie Wahlberg,who was just 14when New Kids on the Block debuted onthe music scene in the late 1980s to wildfan craze,said he remembers the pressureand hard times that came with being ateen celebrity.“Justin Bieber’s making mistakes thateveryone makes and he’s probably tryingthings and exploring things that most kidshis age explore,but the problem is he’sgot 50 paparazzi chasing him aroundwhen he does it,”43-year-old Wahlbergsaid. “When we are 19 and 20,we think we can take on the world and we do for-get that there is a lot of life left to live infront of us,and hopefully he’ll getthrough these times and find his way intoa long career and a healthy adulthood.”Bieber,his manager and his motherdidn’t respond to interview requests forthis story. But the pressure was evident inthe days following his collapse backstageat the O2 Arena,as the Grammy-nomi-nated singer wrote on Instagram that he’ssick of the “countless lies in the press”and that he would not be heading torehab.“I’ve accomplished more than Icould’ve ever dreamed of,i’m 19 and itmust be scary to some people to think thatthis is just the beginning,he wrote. “I’ma good person with a big heart. ... All thisisn’t easy. I get angry sometimes. I’mhuman. I’m gonna make mistakes.”
Analysis:Despite ousterplans,Leno leads ratings
NEW YORK — Jay Leno and the“Tonight”show is one of the few remain-ing successful programs that NBC has onits network. So why would its executivesthink about getting rid of him?NBC has con-firmed that it is build-ing a new studio forJimmy Fallon at itsNew York headquar-ters but refuses tocomment on reportsthat Fallon is due toreplace Leno on aNew York-based“Tonight”show asearly as next year.With Leno already taking potshots atnetwork executives regularly in hismonologue,the network risks repeatingthe nightmare of 2010,when ConanO’Brien failed at “Tonight”and NBCbrought Leno back.“They seem to be making the samemistakes over and over again with a newregime,said Christine Becker,an associ-ate professor at Notre Dame Universityand author of the News For TV Majorsblog. “You kind of wonder what’s in thewater at NBC that is making them makethat decision.”On its face,such a move would seemlike a proactive strategy from NBC’s newcorporate owners at Comcast Corp.,known for its decisive decision-making.Leno,62,and his longtime rival DavidLetterman,65,are approaching the end of their long late-night reigns. Fallon,38and with his own late-night show gettingcritical acclaim,represents the next gen-eration. So does Jimmy Kimmel,45,atABC,and that network made the strategicchess move in January to give him thesame time slot as Leno and Letterman.

Mark and Kimberly Klaiber were given 30days to clear their yard of debris in SanMateo’s Shoreview neighborhood and spentthe past month with help from volunteersmaking several dump runs in an effort to com-ply with a court-ordered preliminary injunc-tion.The couple was previously ordered tovacate their home as the city asked the court todeclare the property on Lindbergh Street a“continuing public nuisance.A judge ruled in February that the couplehad to clean up the front and backyard of thehome within 30 days and if the family doesnot clean up the mess,the city will completethe work through a contractor and bill thefamily,according to the preliminary injunc-tion.The time for voluntary compliance hasexpired,however,and the city can nowarrange for a vendor to complete the work.The Klaibers have yet to hear from the city,however,and are not sure whether all the work they have done will be enough to comply withthe court order.Although the family cleared much debrisfrom the front yard,there are still whatappears to be inoperable vehicles on the prop-erty,a possible violation of the preliminaryinjunction.Mark Klaiber once even lived in a tent infront the home while his family was previous-ly ordered to vacate it because of myriad codeenforcement problems.A judge ordered the tent removed from thefront of the property also and it is now gone,but other larger items,such as an old campertrailer and truck,are still parked in the drive-way.The city has had code enforcement issues at227 Lindbergh St. since at least since 1995,according to the City Attorney’s Office.In 2001,the owners began a constructionproject and,at least since 2006,the city hashad code enforcement issues with the proper-ty and sought to declare it a public nuisance.Some of the most recent code enforcementviolations the family were hit with include useof the property as a dumping ground; haz-ardous or unsanitary premises,debris,junk,garbage and vegetation accumulations on theproperty; fire hazards; excessive accumulationof storage,junk and/or debris on the property;inadequate exits,excessive accumulation of storage,junk creating potential safe egresshazard; and storage in public view,junk,debris,construction materials stored in publicview.
Two Oakland councilmembersaccused of breaking law
Oakland’s city auditor says two councilmembers broke city law by interfering with thebidding process for a major construction proj-ect.Courtney Ruby made the allegations againstlong-time council members Desley Brooks andLarry Reid in a report released on Thursday.Ruby said Brooks and Reid told the city’sredevelopment staff to seek a bid from a partic-ular construction company for a roughly $2 mil-lion contract involving the redevelopment of theformer Oakland Army Base.The councilmembers’preferred company didnot get the deal. Reid called the allegationsagainst him “a flat-out lie.”Brooks said sheraised concerns at a public meeting that staff had not opened the contract to competitive bid-ding,but did not interfere.Ruby said she intends to turn her findingsover to the Alameda County District Attorney’sOffice and the FBI.
Family cleans mess,but is it enough?
City of San Mateo set to decide if family can stay in house
A San Mateo family was ordered by a judge last month to clean up their property or have thecity do it for them.The family cleared much debris from their Lindbergh Street home overthe past 30 days but they may still face fines or even be forced to vacate their home if the work was not enough to comply with a preliminary injunction.Left,is the house as it looked yesterday,and right,is how the yard looked in early January.
