U.S. SENATE PASSES LEGISLATION

The chance of a public marinaremaining at Pete’s Harbor afterits conversion into 411 waterfronthigh-rises — a demand by oppo-nents and a concession by thedeveloper — is now lost becausethe state forced owner PaulaUccelli to terminate leases of theouter waterway, according to herspokesman.As of June21, Uccelligave notice toend her 28-yearlease with theState LandsCommissionfor the outerharbor, an areadeveloper PaulPowers hadagreed to keep as public slips if Redwood City officials approvethe application. Uccelli said shehad little choice because the com-mission issued a breach of con-tract, ordered her to make millionsof dollars in capital improvementswithin 60 days and claimed shehad not provided timely notice of her husband’s 2005 death.“At this junction, the StateLands Commission has made it lit-erally impossible to maintain theouter harbor and has in all likeli-hood needlessly ruined anyprospect of a future public marinaat Pete’s Harbor,” Uccelli said in aprepared statement.Pete Uccelli opened the 21-acreharbor in 1958 and the quirkyboat-dwelling community becamea Peninsula landmark. Uccelliplanned to sell her land and trans-fer the outer harbor lease toPowers for his planned develop-ment. However, as news of thepending sale broke and Uccellievicted tenants, opponents foughtback against the proposal andquestioned the State LandsCommission about her right to doso under the existing lease termswhich called for a commercialmarina. Powers attempted to splitthe difference by agreeing to pub-lic slips and even financial com-pensation to move remaining ten-ants in return for the opposinggroups to drop their efforts. No

City code was thenamended in 1975 to ban beekeep-ing outright in every part of thecity, he said.“I can’t tell you why and it hasnever beenrevisited,” Tolersaid.That couldchange, howev-er, since ViceMayor CharlieBronitsky andCouncilmanHerb Perez saidthey were bothwilling to consider beekeeping inthe city if it gets on a councilagenda.“Many of our rules are antiquat-ed,” Perez wrote in an email. Healso said he is committed to updat-ing all ordinances that may “haveoutlived their usefulness.”Bronitsky was not aware thatbeekeeping was banned in thecity.“If a resident wants to raise thisissue, they can always appear atany City Council meeting and askus to put it on the agenda or theycan email any of us to do the same.We would then have the benefit of a staff report and the applicant’sposition from which to make adecision,” Bronitsky wrote theDaily Journal in an email.In March, members of theBeekeepers’Guild of San MateoCounty attended a San Mateo CityCouncil study session on sustain-

House investigators:Disability judges are too lax
WASHINGTON — Social Security isapproving disability benefits at strik-ingly high rates for people whoseclaims were rejected by field offices orstate agencies, according to Houseinvestigators. Compounding the situ-ation, the agency often fails to dorequired follow-up reviews months oryears later to make sure people are stilldisabled.Claims for benefits have increasedby 25 percent since 2007, pushing thefund that supports the disability pro-gram to the brink of insolvency,which could mean reduced benefits.Social Security officials say the pri-mary driver of the increase is demo-graphic, mainly a surge in babyboomers who are more prone to dis-ability as they age but are not quite oldenough to qualify for retirement bene-fits.The disability program has beenswamped by benefit claims since therecession hit a few years ago. Lastyear, 3.2 million people applied forSocial Security Disability orSupplemental Security Income.In addition, however, managementproblems “lead to misspending” andadd to the financial ills of the program,investigators from the HouseOversight and Government ReformCommittee say.“Federal disability claims are oftenpaid to individuals who are not legallyentitled to receive them,” three seniorRepublicans on the House committeedeclared in a March 11 letter to theagency. Among the signers was thecommittee’s chairman, Rep. DarrellIssa of California.

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT
The Service League of San Mateo Countynamed longtime employee and interim directorKaren Francone to permanently take up thereins of the nonprofit which administers pro-grams preparing and transitioning jail inmatesback into society.Francone has been involved with the ServiceLeague since 1990 when she helped launch theorganization’s first Hope House which givesrecently released female inmates an intensiveresidential substance abuse treatment programbefore reuniting with their families and thecommunity. She has been director of the HopeHouse program since 1997, working to expandto six houses and offer transitional housingopportunities.“Karen is already such anessential component of this organization and weare very excited that she’llbe working in this role,”said Mike Scanlon, presi-dent of the board of direc-tors, in a prepared state-ment.The decision came after anationwide search to replace former executivedirector and county supervisor Mike Nevin whoserved six years before his December 2012death from esophageal cancer. Scanlon citedFrancone’s “instrumental” work with Nevin tomake the Service League successful in theannouncement of her naming.In 2010, the Service League honoredFrancone’s work by dedicating the Karen MarieWellness Center which provides Hope House’sclients with a fully-equipped health and fitnessfacility.Francone said she is “incredibly honored” bythe new opportunity and chance to continue theorganization’s work.“Twenty years ago, I joined the ServiceLeague because I wanted to work hands-on toimprove the lives of some of our community’most vulnerable people. Today, I’m celebratingthe success that we’ve had and embracing thechance to promote the Service League’s contin-ued growth so that more and more people canbenefit from our programs,” Francone said.

Oktoberfest movingback to San Carlos
Peninsula Oktoberfest, the annual one-daycommunity excuse for music, food and goodbeer, is heading north this fall to San Carlos.After a four-year run in Redwood City,Peninsula Oktoberfest organizers want a small,more intimate event and believe the HillerAviation Museum in San Carlos provides theperfect mix of large outdoor space, centralizedlocation and — on the off chance of rain as inthe celebration’s first year — indoor space.Organizers are touting the free parking,indoor rest rooms and limited ticket sales tohelp keep lines short. Oh, and the addition of cool airplanes to check out is a bonus for visi-tors, too.The smaller location also frees volunteersfrom the extra burden that comes with biggerevents and popularity, according to anannouncement of the move.More details will be released closer to theactual event at www.hiller.org.
