280 Baldwin Ave. Downtown San Mateo
Family Owned & Operated
Established: 1949
By Samantha Weigel
More than 180 people, some
fresh from work, some without a
home and many with children,
arrive at Monte Diablo Avenue in
the early evening to wait for a
warm meal and a kind smile from
Samaritan House volunteers.
The charitable organization
based in San Mateo has had to
move its nightly dining services
from an indoor facility to tem-
porarily serving to-go meals at
the Martin Luther King Jr.
Community Center. It is now try-
ing to find a nearby location that
will allow it to provide clients
with hospitable facilities.
The incredible attendance during
Tuesday’s first meal service at the
King Center was proof of the com-
munity’s need for food assistance,
said Laura Bent, director of pro-
grams and services at Samaritan
House. People started lining up at
4:30 p.m. for its 5 p.m. opening;
within 20 minutes it ran out of its
180 premade chicken, rice and
vegetable dinners, Bent said.
Samaritan House provides more
than 2,800 free meals every
month to those in the community
with its Monday through Friday, 5
p.m. to 6 p.m. dining service, said
Marcy Spiker, communications
specialist at Samaritan House. For
more than 17 years, Samaritan
House was able to provide its
clients with indoor seating at the
Westside Church, Bent said.
Luckily, San Mateo’s Park and
Recreation Department stepped up
and temporarily placed Samaritan
House at the King Center when the
church made alternate plans for the
facility, Bent said. Samaritan
House is unable to use the indoor
portion of the King Center
because there are other events
scheduled during the week, Spiker
said. Although grateful to have
only moved across the street, the
lack of an indoor seating area is a
detriment to its clients, Bent said.
The seating area provided
clients with opportunities to
socialize; it was like a family, said
Mario Cousenes, a Samaritan
House cook who’s been involved
with the organization for more
than 24 years.

Man charged with driving
BMW down 'Rocky' steps
PHILADELPHIA — Police have
charged a 20-year-old man with reck-
less endangerment for allegedly driv-
ing his car down the Philadelphia
Museum of Art steps made famous by
the movie "Rocky. "
Police say 20-year-old Emin Faki
told them the brakes on the car failed
and he couldn't stop it. Police had the
BMWchecked out and filed the crimi-
nal charge.
The Oct. 24 stunt was recorded by
onlookers who posted videos online.
KYW-TV reports that Faki surren-
dered Thursday. Online court records
show he was arraigned early Friday
and applied for a public defender,
though one hasn't been assigned.
Ajudge ordered Faki to appear for a

Wedding rings
swapped for Chiefs tickets
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A longtime
Kansas City Chiefs fan says he
swapped six game tickets for a wed-
ding ring set advertised on Craigslist.
The buyer, 49-year-old Kansas City
resident Rusty Jones, said he first
learned of the ring offer last week
through a story in The Kansas City
Star. He contacted the seller, who
wanted to swap the rings and surprise
a loved one with tickets to the Dec. 1
game at Arrowhead Stadium, The
Kansas City Star reported Friday.
The tickets are a hot commodity as
the Chiefs have started the season 9-
0, and the December home game
against Denver could have playoff
A season ticket holder since 1993,
Jones said he and his girlfriend had
started talking about engagement
rings a month ago. He had tickets to
offer, though not the club-level seats
the seller was seeking. Nonetheless,
his offer worked: Four tickets to the
Broncos game and two tickets to the
Nov. 24 Chargers game, all in section
123 near the end zone.
Jones said the seller lost his contact
information and ended up reposting
the Craigslist ad. He reached out again
and made a deal.
The rings, which the newspaper said
were from the seller's previous mar-
riage, were appraised at $2,800.
The seller has asked to remain
anonymous to avoid spoiling the sur-
Cops: Pennsylvania man stole
backhoe, drove miles to Philly
PHILADELPHIA — A Pennsylvania
man has been jailed on charges he
stole a $125,000 backhoe from a sub-
urban construction site then drove it
about 30 miles to a scrapyard in
Philadelphia where he intended to
sell it.
Police estimate it would have taken
33-year-old William Michael Pusey
about 2 1/2 hours to make the trip to
Philadelphia from Shainline
Excavating of Phoenixville, where
the backhoe was stolen Sunday.
State police say the backhoe's
owner was able to locate it because of
a global-positioning device in it.
Police say Pusey was arrested in
Philadelphia where he had heard
someone wanted to buy a backhoe.
Court records don't list an attorney
for Pusey, of Columbia, who has been
returned to the Lancaster County
Prison because he faces an outstand-
ing unrelated arrest warrant for theft
Pet kangaroo gets loose,
causes stir in West Texas
MIDLAND, Texas — Officers in
West Texas who answered calls about a
kangaroo hopping along a road

animal to its owner.

Painter says deputies thought dis-
patchers were crazy when calls came
in Tuesday night from people who
said they saw a kangaroo. Patrol car

tall kangaroo as the owner offered a

ized President Dwight D.
Eisenhower to start building the
most up-to-date and impressive road system
in the United States. Eisenhower had just
finished a war in Europe where he found out
firsthand that a country like Germany had
roads superior to any other country. Their
roads reached all parts of the nation and,
because of this, they could deliver supplies
in incredibly rapid time. This type of trans-
portation system is what allowed the North
to send troops at top speed to Pennsylvania
and succeeded in many battles against the
South. This, of course, was the railroad sys-
tem that the North had and the South didn’t .
Eisenhower saw the same principle at work
here. We needed a better transportation sys-
tem to protect ourselves and move com-
modities faster.
The road system we had in the 1950s had
grown by hodge-podge. On the Peninsula,
El Camino Real began being used in the
1770s and wasn’t hardly improved upon for
decades. Bridges were temporary and the
roads themselves were impassable in the
winter due to lack of a good surface. Few
roads connected the eastern parts of the
Peninsula to the western parts. Eventually,
in the 1920s, the Junipero Serra Boulevard
was started but it never was completed to
San Jose as originally planned. Skyline
Boulevard was completed section by section
in the ’20s and wasn’t completed until the
’60s. The only good east-west roads that
existed were Highway 1, Sharp Park

Bruno) and Half Moon Bay Road. Driving

There Is
New Hope!
A Health Center
Dedicated to
Severe Disc
If you suffer with lower back,
neck, or leg pain, we invite you to try
our non surgical solution. The pain
from degenerating and bulging discs
affects everything that you do, from
work, to play, and ultimately your
quality of life. At Crossroads Heath
Center, we have created an entire
facility dedicated to patients with
severe disc conditions that have not
responded to traditional care. Our
revolutionary, Crossroads Method,
provides a very high success rate to
patients with serious back, neck,
leg and arm pain – even when all
else has failed. This FDA cleared;
non-surgical treatment allows us
to rehabilitate your herniated or
degenerative disc(s) by reversing
internal pressure and enabling your
disc(s) to heal from the inside out.
We succeed where other treatments
have failed – by removing the
pressure that is causing pain to
your disc(s) and nerves – without
drugs, injections, invasive surgery or
harmful side effects.

“The Crossroads Method”
This method which includes
computerized true disc
decompression is considered by
many doctors to be the most
advanced and successful non-
invasive treatment of serious back,
neck, leg or arm pain.
This procedure allows for a much
higher success rate by increasing
hydration of your discs, fexibility,
relaxation of muscles and ligaments
along with improving muscle and
core strength, balance and posture.
This results in a more effective and
lasting solution to your pain. There
are no side effects and no recovery
time is required.
This gentle and relaxing treatment
has proven to be effective… even
when drugs, epidurals, traditional
chiropractic, physical therapy
and surgery have failed… The
Crossroads Method has shown
dramatic results.
Patient Testimonials
During the 1 1/2 years of having
constant daily lower back pain and
spasms, I took anti-infammatory
and pain medication, but nothing
helped lessen the pain. When an MRI
showed that I had two degenerative
discs, I went through a series of
lumbar epidural injections without
success. The only thing that made
the pain and spasms go away was
Spinal Decompression treatments at
Crossroads Health Center. Four years
later and I am still pain-free!
Lisa K. San Jose, 2013
I came in to Dr. Ferrigno for
lower back pain. It’s a problem
that I have had for about 10 to
15 years. I tried everything from
physiatrists, medical doctors,
doctor of osteopathy, chiropractic,
acupuncture, pain medications,
epidural injections and everything
was a temporary fx. I decided to try
the DRX therapy and I’ve gone from
an average pain level between 5/7
out of 10 all the way down to a pain
level of 1 to 2 pretty consistently.
The DRX was defnitely the only
thing that has made me feel better.
Brian G. Los Gatos CA. 2013
How Will I Know If I Qualify
for Treatment?
When you come in for a
complimentary consultation we will
ask a series of questions and perform
a comprehensive examination to
determine exactly where the pain is
coming from. If x-rays are necessary,
we can take them in our offce. Once
we determine the cause of your
pain we will let you know if we can
help you and if you qualify for our
treatment protocol.
If we don’t feel like we can help we
will refer you to someone who can.

Driver strikes pedestrian
BELMONT — A Belmont man
driving onto El Camino Real
struck a pedestrian Thursday
evening in Belmont, according to
police. The collision occurred
shortly before 5:30 p.m. on
Thursday at Ruth Avenue and El
Camino Real, according to Capt.
Patrick Halleran.
The pedestrian, a 49-year-old
Moss Beach woman, was cross-
ing Ruth Avenue northbound
when she was struck by a Honda
sedan turning right on to El
Camino from Ruth, Halleran said.
The pedestrian was taken to a
hospital with injuries not consid-
ered life-threatening injuries.
The driver, a 26-year-old
Belmont man, appears to have
stopped for the stop sign at Ruth
but failed to see the pedestrian,
Halleran said. The pedestrian was
wearing dark clothing and
thought the driver saw her.
Halleran said motorists should be
alert for pedestrians and bicy-
clists, and pedestrians should not
assume drivers see them.

Armed woman shot and
killed by sherriff's deputies
SAN JOSE — A woman armed
with a knife was shot and killed
after confronting sheriff' s
deputies in the driveway of a
home in unincorporated San Jose
early Saturday, a Santa Clara
County sheriff's spokesman said.
Deputies responded around 12:20
a.m. to a report of suspicious cir-
cumstances and a possible burgla-
ry at a triplex in the first block of
Cleveland Avenue, Sgt. Kurtis
Stenderup said.
The caller reported hearing
glass breaking and loud pounding
noises coming from somewhere
on the property, and later report-
ed hearing a female outside
yelling and banging on some-
thing, he said.
Three deputies arrived on the
scene and were confronted by a
woman armed with a knife in the
triplex's driveway, the sergeant
said. Stenderup said he did not
know whether she was pointing
the weapon at the deputies. The
deputies ordered the woman to
drop the knife, but she refused,
and at least one of the deputies
shot her, the sergeant said.
Emergency medical aid was
given to the woman, but she suc-
cumbed to her injuries and was
pronounced dead at the scene. No
deputies were injured in the inci-
dent. Stenderup said sheriff' s
homicide investigators were at
the scene overnight and through
this afternoon interviewing the
deputies involved and witnesses.
The Santa Clara County District
Attorney's Office is monitoring
the investigation. The deputies
involved in the shooting will be
placed on administrative leave,
following standard procedure in
an officer-involved death,
Stenderup said. He said investiga-
tors are working to identify the
woman and to determine whether
she lived at the triplex or knew
someone in the building. Anyone
who may have witnessed the inci-
dent is asked to call the sheriff' s
office at (408) 808-4431.

Relocating the Caltrain shuttles
from the east to west side of the
San Carlos station as proposed
during the Transit Village project
talks would add time to each com-
mute that could reduce the number
of trips and hamper punctuality,
according to transportation con-
A July 2013 study by Hexagon
Transportation Consultants Inc.
of the existing operation and pro-
posed alternatives concluded that
rerouting the Redwood Shores
buses would increase the morning
travel times by nearly three-and-a-
half minutes and more than seven
minutes in the afternoon because
of congestion at the Holly Street
and Old County Road/El Camino
Real intersection. Another delay
would happen waiting to turn at a
future signalized intersection at El
Camino Real and Cherry Street
because of the long green time
given to El Camino Real traffic.
The study conceded the impacts
of future schedule adjustments are
hard to know but the goal is tim-
ing connections with Caltrain and
“adding even a few minutes o the
shuttle travel time can have nega-
tive consequences for both the rid-
ership and the operation.”
Caltrain already has minor shut-
tle schedule tweaks in the works
that are expected to increase travel
times which further adds to the
challenge, the study states.
SamTrans has told the city that
increased travel times and less effi-
ciency makes the shuttles less
competitive for grant funding,
according to a report by principal
planner Lisa Porras.
SamTrans spokeswoman Jayme
Ackemann said efficiency is
important and that the three or
seven minutes have a compound-
ing effect but that they are things
that can be worked on.
“We’re taking our lead from the
city. San Carlos wouldn’t be the
first city to ask us to relocate shut-
tles to accommodate some other
community concerns. But we do
recognize there may be some serv-
ice impacts and it’s something we
need to consider carefully,” she
The Hexagon analysis is com-
ing to the city’s Transportation
and Circulation Commission
Tuesday, Nov. 19 as part of the
ongoing discussion about possi-
ble relocation. The move has been
a key push by the Greater East San
Carlos neighborhood group which

Police investigating
solo motorcycle crash
Police in South San Francisco are
investigating a solo motorcycle
crash on Friday morning that sent a
male to a hospital with major
injuries. The accident occurred
roughly at 6 a.m. in the area of
Hickey and Junipero Serra boule-
vards, police said. After the motor-
cyclist rode through the intersec-
tion, he struck a curb and was thrown
from the motorcycle into thick
bushes along the side of the road,
according to police. The driver was
transported to San Francisco General
Hospital to be treated for a large lac-
eration on his leg. He is expected to
survive, police said. Anyone who
may have seen the accident is asked

Wet weather forecast to
hit the Bay Area this week
It's time for Bay Area residents to
dust off their umbrellas as wet weath-
er is expected to hit the region early
this week, a National Weather
Service forecaster said Sunday. A
Pacific storm system carrying "a fair
amount of moisture" is bearing down
on the Pacific Northwest and could
bring up to an inch of rain to North
Bay hills starting on Monday night,
forecaster Charles Bell said.
San Francisco, the East Bay, and
communities on the Peninsula could
get between a quarter-inch and a half-
inch of rainfall, with showers pre-
dicted to start early Tuesday morning
and continue through Wednesday,
Bell said. Communities in the South
Bay could get a quarter-inch or less,
according to the weather service.
Motorists are advised to use extra
precaution when driving if it does
rain, as the first hour of rainfall is
likely to produce slick and hazardous
conditions on Bay Area roadways.

roads with the lack of rain," Bell

The back-and-forth, nail-biting
race for the third slot on the
Burlingame City Council ended
Sunday with Russ Cohen’s
announcement he will not be seek-
ing a recount after falling eight
votes short of Ricardo Ortiz in the
final count for the Nov. 5 election.
“I want to congratulate Ricardo
Ortiz on his election to
Burlingame’s City Council,”
Cohen said by email Sunday. “I am
certain he will make a fine repre-
sentative for our city. ”
Cohen had toyed with the idea of
a recount after the vote total
swung within a 20-vote margin
after several updates to the tally
by the San
Mateo County

Mayor Ann
Keighran and
Co u n c i l ma n
Michael Brownrigg had convinc-
ing vote totals on Election Night
to win re-election.
Joining Keighran and
Brownrigg on the council will be
Ortiz, who already congratulated
both and also singled out Cohen
for a well-run campaign that
focused on the issues. He also con-
gratulated the
other candidates
for the courage
to run, he said
by email.
“My first pri-
ority will be to
reach out to the
rest of the coun-
cil to share the
many concerns
that I heard on the campaign
trail,” Ortiz said. “I hope to work
closely with all of them to find
ways to address them.”
Recounts, while not unheard of,
are usually rare in this county.
They are also expensive. Acandi-
date asking for a recount is
charged $956 per recount board
per day. Before a recount com-
mences, the person requesting the
recount will determine how many
recount boards are to perform the
task each day, what ballots and
precincts are to be recounted and if
it is by hand, manual, or machine,
electronic. The cost to recount by
machine is $300 per hour. There
may also be administrative costs
added for preparing a recount. A
manual recount may last five days
or more if a full recount is request-
ed, according to San Mateo
County Elections Manager David
On Election Night, Ortiz had
1,644 votes and Cohen had 1,634
votes, respectively. The vote then
flipped when numbers were report-
ed Nov. 8 and Cohen led by 17
votes. On Nov. 12, the count
revealed the vote difference had
narrowed, with Cohen still on top.
Cohen took 1,995 and Ortiz took
1,992 votes, according to
Tuesday’s count. Now, according
to the final count released Nov.
13, Ortiz has 2,048 votes, while
Cohen has 2,040 votes. Both
have 15.5 percent of the vote.
The Elections Office will begin
its 1 percent manual tally today in
anticipation of certifying the
results in early December. The
tally confirms that the election
was properly conducted. More

of people are expected to attend
"The Concert For Kids" on Tuesday
night in San Francisco, a fundrais-

Oakland. The fourth annual event,
which is being presented by the
Salesforce.com Foundation in
conjunction with their Dreamforce
conference and gala, is set to take
place at AT&T Park, with festivi-
ties including live music, cock-
tails and special presentations.
Headliners for this year's event
include Grammy-award winning
rockers Green Day, Rock N' Roll
Hall of Famers Blondie and local
rapper MC Hammer.
The concert is an important part
of the hospitals' efforts to provide
a host of programs to sick children
and their families from all over the
world. Previous concerts have
raised $10 million, and this year's
event has already garnered $6 mil-
lion in sponsorships, according
to Juliana Bunim, Senior Public
Information Representative at
UCSF. In addition to raising funds
for current programming, money
generated from the concert will
also go toward building a new state
of the art home for UCSF Benioff
Children's Hospital at the univer-
sity's Mission Bay campus, slated
to open February 1, 2015.
"This is a dream come true to
know that we are going to have a
six story building completely ded-
icated to children, and I think that
it's a building that's going to suit
the incredible care that's given
here," said Kim Scurr, executive
director of UCSF Benioff
Children's Hospital.
In addition to treating children
with a variety of illnesses, and
preparing them for their proce-
dures, the hospital also strives to
provide a high level of comfort for
them and their families while stay-
ing there; at the new campus,
which has been in the works for
more than a decade, the staff are
planning on being able to offer
even more specialized care.
"You can cure a child of their ill-
ness-but you can also rob them of
their childhood. Our Child Life
Specialists normalize the hospital
experience for kids, they normal-
ize what is an abnormal environ-
ment; so kids go to school here,
there's a play room, and we have an
art and music therapy program that
helps kids to express how they feel
about having an illness in a way
that they might not be able to ver-
bally articulate," said Scurr.
"That's a big part of us moving
into the new building, because we
will have more space, we'll also be
able to offer more programs like
that. We're a family-centered care
environment-we consider the
entire family to be our patients-
and there will be opportunities to
work with them outside in three
beautiful gardens, and children
who are undergoing rehabilitation
services will be able to do some of
their exercises outside."
The new children's hospital will
have 183 beds, and will be part of
a 289 bed integrated complex for
children, women and cancer
"We're really excited about the
new way of doing our business, a
way that makes the patients' expe-
rience much more empowered,"
said Scurr. "And that also makes it
a fantastic place to work."

LOS ANGELES — California cannot account
for 174,000 tons of lead and other hazardous
materials shipped for disposal in the last five
years, but state regulators say public health is
not threatened, a newspaper reported Sunday.
The Los Angeles Times reported that a state
database shows the toxic chemicals and cancer-
causing metals were shipped but gives no indi-
cation that they arrived at their intended destina-
tions — many of which are out of state.
California officials told the newspaper they
are confident that the missing shipments found
their way to disposal sites but acknowledge
they can’t be sure.
“We don’t know,” said Debbie Raphael, direc-
tor of the state Department of Toxic Substances
Control, which has a $189-million budget and
about 900 employees. “It’s a question mark.”
Raphael and other officials told the Times
they are concerned by gaps in the tracking sys-
tem. However, they insisted they would know
through public complaints or reports from local
officials if a significant amount of toxic waste
had been dumped illegally.
“I do not believe that Californians are at
risk,” Raphael said.
The Times said the lost loads include more
than 20,000 tons of lead, 520 tons of the car-
cinogen benzene and 355 tons of methyl ethyl
ketone, a flammable solvent.
In most cases, no one investigates what hap-
pened to the missing waste.
California’s rules on handling hazardous
waste are among the strictest in the nation.
From dry cleaners to heavy manufacturers, busi-
nesses that generate waste must report every
load they ship. Disposal and treatment facilities
must record the waste’s safe arrival. And the
state agency is required to track every ton to
make sure it isn’t dumped illegally along the
But the newspaper reported there are holes in
the department’s database and they lose track of
large quantities of toxic chemicals and cancer-
causing metals. Regulators make only limited
use of what information is available, and the
system does not automatically flag potential
problems, the Times found.
It can be difficult to link illnesses to hazardous waste
because those who have been exposed might not
know it. Also, symptoms can take years to develop
and can be ascribed to other causes.
But even a small amount of errant waste can
create “a very big public health impact,” said W.
Bowman Cutter, an associate professor in the
environmental analysis program at Pomona
College, who has studied the state’s hazardous
waste system.

LOS ANGELES — Andy Warhol’s
artwork has always grabbed atten-
tion and sparked discussion, but
one of his portraits of Farrah
Fawcett is about to receive scrutiny
of a different kind in a Los Angeles
The case centers on a relatively
simple question: does one of
Warhol’s depictions of Fawcett
belong to her longtime lover,
Ryan O’Neal, or should it join its
twin at her alma mater, the
University of Texas at Austin?
To decide the case, jurors will
hear testimony and see evidence
focused on Warhol and O’Neal’s
friendship, his relationship with
Fawcett and the actress’ final wish-
es. The panel will likely get
insight into Warhol’s creation of
the Fawcett image, which was
based on a Polaroid photo the artist
took of the “Charlie’s Angels” star
in 1980.
The image, one of the main
attractions in a 2011 exhibit on
portraiture at UT’s Blanton
Museum of Art, features an unsmil-
ing Fawcett looking out from the
canvas. Warhol painted her lips red
and her eyes green in an otherwise
uncolored image.
Jury selection in the trial is
expected to begin this week, with
O’Neal and possibly Fawcett’s
“Charlie’s Angels” co-star Jaclyn
Smith taking the witness stand.
The case resumes on Wednesday,
when lawyers will argue what evi-
dence will be admitted during the
trial, which is expected to take two
Fawcett decreed in her will that
all her artwork go to the school,
yet O’Neal insists that Warhol gave
him a copy of the portrait as a gift
and it belongs to him.
Warhol’s art continues to garner
attention and high prices. His
painting of the immediate after-
math of a car crash sold for $105
million at auction last week,
although the value of his Fawcett
portrait is at dispute in the case.
Estimates range from $600,000 to
more than $10 million, according
to filings in the case.
University of Texas’ lawyers
contend O’Neal improperly
removed the portrait from
Fawcett’s condominium after her
2009 death. The Oscar-nominated
actor had the artwork moved there
to prevent it from being damaged
by the salty air at his beachside
home and had the right to retrieve
it, his lawyers argue.
O’Neal has countersued the uni-
versity, seeking the return of a
cloth napkin that Warhol drew
hearts on and gave as a gift to
Fawcett and the actor.
“It is a precious memento of his
life with Ms. Fawcett, the love of
his life, with whom he was roman-
tically involved for 30 years up
until the time of her death,”
O’Neal’s lawyers wrote in a trial
brief. “Because O’Neal’s Warhol
portrait is an heirloom, he never
intends to, nor will sell it.”
The university says the case is
about honoring Fawcett’s final wish-
“We simply want to honor and
respect the charitable intent and
wishes of Farrah Fawcett,” UT’s
Vice Chancellor for External
Relations Randa S. Safady wrote in
a statement. “It is indisputable that
in Ms. Fawcett’s living trust, she
named the University of Texas at
Austin as the sole beneficiary of all
of her works of art, including art-
work she created and all objects of
art that she owned, for charitable
Court fights over assets frequent-
ly occur and are likely to increase
as people gain greater understand-
ing of their rights in estate cases,
said Bradford Cohen, an estate and
tax attorney in Venable LLC’s Los
Angeles office.
“What comes up a lot in the
estate area is that it’s not clear what
the intentions of the deceased were
and what the deceased owned,”
Cohen said. “These things get
slugged out a lot in litigation.”
Despite Fawcett’s notoriety and
interest in her and O’Neal’s rela-
tionship, Cohen said the case real-
ly centers on a basic question,
“What did she own and where did
she want it to go to?”

CHICAGO — Dozens of torna-
does and intense thunderstorms
swept across the Midwest on
Sunday, causing extensive dam-
age in several central Illinois
communities, killing at least
three people and prompting offi-
cials at Chicago’s Soldier Field
to evacuate the stands and delay
the Bears game.
“The whole neighborhood’s

is all that is left of my house,”

An elderly man and his sister
were killed when a tornado hit
their home around noon in the
rural community of New

third person died in Washington,

and three vehicles to
Washington to assist with
immediate search and recovery

WASHINGTON — Sen. Kirsten
Gillibrand has secured public sup-
port from nearly half the Senate, but
not enough votes, for her proposal
to give victims of rape and sexual
assault in the military an independ-
ent route outside the chain of com-
mand for prosecuting attackers.
Gillibrand’s solution for a prob-
lem the military calls an epidemic
appears to have stalled in the face
of united opposition from the
Pentagon’s top
echelon and its
allies in
C o n g r e s s ,
including two
female senators
who are former
Opponents of
the proposal by
Gillibrand, D-
N.Y., insist that
commanders, not an outside mili-
tary lawyer, must be accountable for
meting out justice.
Even so, major changes are com-
ing for a decades-old military sys-
tem just a few months after several
high-profile cases infuriated
Republicans and Democrats in a
rapid chain of events by
Washington standards.
“Sexual assault in the military is
not new, but it has been allowed to
fester,” Gillibrand said in a recent
Senate speech.
The Senate this week is set to
consider an annual defense policy
bill that would strip commanders of
their ability to overturn jury con-
victions, require dishonorable dis-
charge or dismissal for any individual
convicted of sexual assault and estab-
lish a civilian review when a decision
is made not to prosecute a case.
The bill would provide a special
counsel for victims and eliminate
the statute of limitations.
Those changes in military law are
backed by members of the Senate
Armed Services Committee. But
overshadowing the revisions is the
testy, intense fight over
Gillibrand’s proposal to strip com-
manders of their authority to prose-
cute cases of sexual assault. She
wants to hand responsibility to
seasoned military lawyers outside
the chain of command.
Her solution has divided the
Senate, splitting Republicans and
Democrats, men and women, even
former attorneys general, into
unusual coalitions. The lobbying
has been fierce, with dueling data,
testimonials and news conferences
with victims. Opponents invited
Marine Corps Brig. Gen. Loretta
Reynolds to the closed-door
Republican caucus last week.

ing U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and comparing
him to Sen. Joe McCarthy take off
their “blind blinkers” and look around
Why oh why would they be so
shocked when we have a president who
has lied to us repeatedly, betrayed us
and caused such disruption and anxiety
for the peoples of America; together
with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. At
least Ted Cruz told the truth and stood
up for the American people.
Did you stay awake to listen to all of
his speech or did you just interpret
what you wanted to? The venom, Mr.
Hill and Ms. Lempert is emitting from
you both. Yes, let’s hope the United
States will wake up and real soon and
not listen to the vitriol spewing from
ignorant people.

The retirement party
Attending a retirement party is easy.
One need not be concerned about how
the party is funded — just put on a
smile and show up. Writing about the
party can be difficult. How can it sound
important and relevant to non-atten-
dees? For example, a column appear-
ing in the Nov. 11 edition of the Daily
Journal written by Sue Lempert,
“Retirement party for Susan Loftus,”
begins by telling readers that the gov-
ernment officials who attended the
party told one another how great they
looked. Their names are listed but it is
doubtful that many readers, especially
those with low incomes, have ever
met the attendees and probably will
not encounter them in the future. Ms.
Lempert also says the party shows
what is best about the city of San
Mateo. Readers may wonder how a
retirement party can be more appealing
than the city’s shopping areas, restau-
rants, parks and recreation facilities.
Near the end of the column, readers
are told that Larry Patterson is a per-
fect interim city manager because he
has a reputation for getting things
done. It would be nice to have some
specifics — what was achieved, with
how much effort, and with what type
of resources? Perhaps, readers can give
Ms. Lempert some tips on improving
her reporting skills.

This part of 17th Avenue is hardly

he results are finally in. The
reporting as to the
percentage of
votes received by
each candidate in
city council elec-
tions in San Mateo
County leaves an
incorrect impres-
sion of the votes
the winners received. Since voters may
cast multiple votes which somehow get
cumulated in vote totals, and the races
are at large rather than head to head, the
election reporting percentages are not
For example, in Redwood City, the
top vote-getter Jeff Gee received 4,865
votes but was reported as 24.40 percent
— that percentage is meaningless
because it is not linked to how many
people actually voted as compared to
how many votes were cast. After all,
the voters in Redwood City each had up
to three votes to cast for City Council
and of course could only cast one per
The Redwood City winners, Gee,
Diane Howard and John Seybert, clear-
ly dominated the field finishing with
4,865, 4,403 and 3,730 votes respec-
tively. Perhaps the most meaningful
percentage is the difference in votes
between candidates who won and those
who did not. The top finisher Gee
received about 90 percent more votes
than Corrin Rankin, who finished
fourth. In other words, to catch Gee,
Rankin would have had to receive at
least 90 percent more votes that she
did. To match John Seybert (who in
effect came in “first” for the third avail-
able seat), Rankin would have had to
garner 46 percent more votes than she
was able to. James Lee Hahn, who fin-
ished second from the bottom, trailed
behind percentage wise even more dra-
matically — to reach Gee or Seybert,
Hahn would have had to find approxi-
mately 115 percent or 65 percent more
votes respectively than he was able to
eke out.
As we know from the Burlingame
race where the margin between winning
and losing currently is eight votes
before a possible recount, each vote is
very important. All Redwood City can-
didates raised important community
issues. Each was able to get their mes-
sages out to the voters in a variety of
meaningful ways. The voters clearly
and resoundingly supported Gee,
Howard and Seybert in Redwood City.

Election post mortems
n Burlingame, every vote for city council counts. Russ
Cohen announced Sunday he would not seek a recount
and ceded the win to Ricardo Ortiz. It has been a see-saw
since Election Day.
In San Mateo, many were surprised that Joshua Hugg came
in fourth (Two incumbents David Lim and Robert Ross came
in first and second.) Hugg lost to Joe Goethals who ran a
more vigorous campaign.
Goethals grew up in San
Mateo, attended St.
Matthew’s, and coached and
played in local sports. He
had a loyal and extensive
following. It also helped
that he is a close friend of
Mayor Lim and works in the
same office — for the
Alameda County District
Attorney’s Office. Recently,
Lim was assigned to the
Santa Clara County District
Attorney’s Office, but is now
back in Alameda. It’s been a
long time since two such
close friends served together
on the council. It hasn’t hap-
pened since the days of Jane Baker and Donna Richardson.
They always voted together on all issues. It will be interest-
ing to see if Goethals and Lim do the same.
The big question is whether Hugg will run again in two
years when Jack Matthews is termed out. His supporters in
the recent race are hoping he will. Meanwhile, there are oth-
ers being talked about as possible 2015 candidates. They
include Park and Recreation commissioners Clifford
Robbins, Lindsay Held and Papia Benerjee Gambelin; Public
Works Commissioner Anna Kuhre; Planning Commissioner
Charles Drechsler; Baywood Homeowners Association
President Diane Papan; former Parks and Recreation commis-
sioner Ellen Mallory Ulrich who will retire from the San
Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District in December;
and Karen Schmidt who came in fifth in this election.
Rumors abound including that one of the above is already a
favorite of several councilmembers and the San Mateo
County political establishment. But two years is a long time
away to crown an heir apparent.
Much of the post mortem discussion is on the failure of
Measure P, the San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School
District bond issue. Usually, the district passes its measures.
But this year it didn’t happen because many San Mateo par-
ents felt out of the loop. It didn’t help that the board didn’t
reflect and respond to concerns in the community before the
ballot measure was finalized. It didn’t help that one board
member, Ellen Mallory Ulrich, voted against the measure and
wrote the ballot statement against it. That was heads-up in
itself that something was wrong. What started out as just a
Foster City issue — the need to build another K-5 school in
and paid for by Foster City residents — morphed into a dis-
trictwide bond measure which included reopening Knolls
Elementary and rebuilding Bowditch Middle schools, when
land could not be found for a new K-5 school in Foster City.
Something got lost in the process — sufficient San Mateo
involvement and buy-in. Today, both supporters and oppo-
nents are sad that this had to happen. But with the help of
two new board members, perhaps the district will do its
political homework before coming to the taxpayers again.
In the meantime, the district has to face the issue of over-
crowding in Foster City’s three elementary schools.
Superintendent Cynthia Simms has proposed several ways to
address this districtwide: increase class size; operate morning
and afternoon kindergartens; adjust school boundaries; and
assign students to schools which have extra space. Some of
this will seem punitive but some adjustments have to be
made to compensate for no new facilities.
There will be many other options to consider. Here’s my
1). To increase capacity at overcrowded schools introduce a
four track year round schedule. The district already operates
year-round schools but single track. In a four-track system,
only three tracks attend school at one time.
2). Reconfigure College Park (Turnbull) as a neighborhood
English immersion school. The neighborhood children need
the most help. Provide them with extra resources, longer
school days, small class sizes, tutorial assistance during and
after school and all-day kindergarten. College Park is located
in North Central San Mateo with an overwhelming Hispanic
student body. But it hosts a Mandarin immersion program
which only a few neighborhood children attend. Most of the
students are bused in from Foster City.
3). Meanwhile, when Knolls is reopened, transfer the
Mandarin immersion program there. Some of these options
seem more attractive than increased class size or changing
school boundaries. There’s nothing inherently wrong with
morning and afternoon kindergarten except that today’s stu-
dents need a full day of kindergarten just as they receive in
several other states.

WASHINGTON — Throughout
President Barack Obama’s first four
years in office, he prided himself
on his ability to bounce back when
much of Washington thought his
presidency was in peril.
But the political challenge posed
by Obama’s disastrous health care
rollout is far greater than those he
overcame during the nasty debt
ceiling fight with Republicans, his
stumbling campaign debate in
2012 or even the painful recession.
This time, the president is fight-
ing to regain trust and credibility
with the American people. Those
are the same qualities that helped
keep him afloat during those earlier
“It’s legitimate for them to
expect me to have to win back some
credibility on this health care law
in particular and on a whole range
of these issues in general,” Obama
said during a news conference last
week that turned into an extensive
mea culpa for the health care fail-
ures consuming the White House.
As bad as things are for Obama,
they may be worse for many mem-
bers of Congress.
Democrats in both the House and
Senate worry the health care prob-
lems could dim their re-election
chances next year. Republicans are
saddled with historically low
approval ratings and an internal
debate over the direction of their
party, though the heath law woes
have proved a lifeline following
the GOP’s much-criticized han-
dling of the government shutdown.
With Republicans sensing an
opportunity in Obama’s free fall,
the president is sure to face a strug-
gle in getting their support, particu-
larly in the House, for White House
priorities such as an immigration
overhaul or broad budget deal.
Without success on other fronts
to counteract the health care fail-
ures, Obama will have fewer chances
to change the public’s view that
Washington, and the president him-
self, are ineffective.
“We appear to be stuck, whatever
direction we look,” William
Galston, a senior fellow at the
Brookings Institution, said about
Washington’s political landscape.
Obama’s health care calamity
began with the flood of computer
problems that crippled
HealthCare.gov, the website that had
been billed as a quick and easy way
for people to purchase insurance.
Those troubles were compounded
when at least 4.2 million people
started receiving cancellation let-
ters from their insurance companies
despite Obama’s repeated assur-
ances that anyone who liked his or
her insurance plan could keep it.
The widespread problems have
spurred questions about the nor-
mally cool and confident presi-
dent’s management style and his
Why was the White House so
poorly prepared for the long-antic-
ipated rollout of Obama’s major
legislative achievement? Why did
the president seem personally
unaware of the extent the problems
until they became publicly known?
For the public, those failures are
changing how they view the president.
Many polls now show that
Americans say Obama isn’t honest
or trustworthy, or a strong leader.
For example, Quinnipiac
University’s poll of registered vot-
ers conducted this month found just
44 percent thought Obama was
honest and trustworthy, down 10
points since earlier this fall. Only
48 percent felt he has strong lead-
ership qualities, a low point in his

CARMICHAEL — The doctor isn’t in, but
he can still see you now.
Remote presence robots are allowing
physicians to “beam” themselves into hos-
pitals to diagnose patients and offer medical
advice during emergencies.
A growing number of hospitals in
California and other states are using telep-
resence robots to expand access to medical
specialists, especially in rural areas where
there’s a shortage of doctors.
These mobile video-conferencing
machines move on wheels and typically
stand about 5 feet, with a large screen that
projects a doctor’s face. They feature cam-
eras, microphones and speakers that allow
physicians and patients to see and talk to
each other.
Dignity Health, which runs Arizona,
California and Nevada hospitals, began
using the telemedicine machines five years
ago to diagnose patients suspected of suffer-
ing strokes — when every minute is crucial
to prevent serious brain damage.
The San Francisco-based health care
provider now uses the telemedicine robots
in emergency rooms and intensive-care
units at about 20 California hospitals, giv-
ing them access to specialists in areas such
as neurology, cardiology, neonatology,
pediatrics and mental health.
“Regardless of where the patient is locat-
ed, we can be at their bedside in several min-
utes,” said Dr. Alan Shatzel, medical director
of the Mercy Telehealth Network. “Literally,
we compress time and space with this tech-
nology. No longer does distance affect a per-
son’s ability to access the best care possi-
Dignity Health is one of several hospital
chains that recently began using RP-VITA,
which was jointly developed by InTouch
Health and iRobot Corp. It’s approved for
hospital use by the U.S. Food and Drug
“Hospitals are now using this type of
technology in order to leverage the special-
ists that they have even better and more effi-
ciently,” said Dr. Yulun Wang, CEO of Santa
Barbara-based InTouch Health.
Nearly 1,000 hospitals in the U.S. and
abroad have installed InTouch telemedicine
devices, including about 50 RP-VITArobots
launched in May, according to company
officials. The company rents out the RP-
VITAfor $5,000 per month.
When a doctor is needed at a remote hos-
pital location, he can log into the RP-VITA
on-site by using a computer, laptop or iPad.
The robot has an auto-drive function that
allows it to navigate its way to the patient’s
room, using sensors to avoid bumping into
things or people.
Once inside the hospital room, the doctor
can see, hear and speak to the patient, and
have access to clinical data and medical
images. The physician can’t touch the
patient, but there is always a nurse or med-
ical assistant on-site to assist.
On a recent morning, Dr. Asad Chaudhary,
a stroke specialist at Dignity Health,
beamed into a robot at the neuro-intensive
care unit at Mercy San Juan Medical Center
in Carmichael to evaluate Linda Frisk, a
patient who recently had a stroke.
With his face projected on the robot
screen, Chaudhary asked Frisk to smile,
open and close her eyes, make a fist and lift
her arms and legs — common prompts to
test a patient’s neurological functioning.
“If you develop any weakness, any numb-
ness, any problem with your speech or any-
thing else, let us know right away, ”
Chaudhary told Frisk before the robot turned
around and left the room.
“It’s just like being with the patient in the
room,” Chaudhary said. “Of course, nothing
can replace seeing these patients in person,
but it’s the next best thing.”

engineers wearing jeans and fli p
flops test the latest smartphone
apps. Walls and windows double
as whiteboards where ideas are jot-
ted down. And a mini basketball
net is in the center of it all.
At first glance, this workplace
resembles any Silicon Valley
startup. There’s just one excep-
tion: Target’s trademark red bulls-
eye at the entrance.
Target, Kohl’s and home-shop-
ping network QVC are among a
half dozen retailers opening tech-
nology test labs in the San
Francisco area to do things like
improve their websites and create
mobile shopping apps. They’re
setting up shop in modern spaces
and competing for top Silicon
Valley talent to replicate the cre-
ativity, culture and nimbleness of
online startups.
The goal is to stay on top of
tech trends and better compete
with online rivals like
Amazon.com that attract shoppers
with convenient ordering and
cheap prices. The labs are a shift
for retailers, which like many
older industries, have been slow to
adapt to rapidly changing technol-
ogy. But retailers say the labs are
essential to satisfy shoppers who
more often are buying on their
PCs, tablets and smartphones.
“Consumers expect immediate
gratification,” says Lori Schafer,
executive adviser at SAS Institute,
which creates software for retail-
ers. As a result, she says retailers
need to develop technology in
weeks, instead of months or years.
Retailers are playing catch-up
after several years of watching
shoppers gradually move from
physical stores to the Web.
Online sales have grown from 5.9
percent of the $2.64 trillion in
total retail sales in 2009 to 7.6
percent of the $3.1 trillion in rev-
enue last year, according to
Forrester Research.
The explosion of people using
smartphones to shop has pushed
stores to move faster. U.S. con-
sumers are now spending more
than half of their time on retailers’
websites using their smartphones
and tablets, according to the
National Retail Federation, a
retail trade group.
Retailers knew they needed to
figure out how to create online and
mobile technology to please their
shoppers. So they began looking
to Silicon Valley, where they
hoped to tap the talent, culture and
creativity that come from tech
giants like Facebook and Apple.
Wal-Mart, the world’s largest
retailer, was the first to open a tech
lab in Silicon Valley. Since open-
ing Wal-MartLabs in San Bruno in
2011, the company has rolled out
a number of technologies that it
developed there.
One of the biggest projects?
Wal-Mart rebuilt its website’s
search engine, which launched in
2012. It can guess a customer’s
intent when he or she types a term
rather than just returning specific
search results. A search for
“denim” yields results for “jeans”
instead of products with “denim,”
for example.
Wal-Mart’s mobile app also has
been a big focus at Wal-MartLabs,
which has 1,200 workers and all
the trappings of a Silicon Valley
startup including treadmill desks
and ping pong tables. For
instance, Wal-MartLabs developed
technology that enables Wal-
Mart’s mobile app to help guide
shoppers to products. It also
developed technology that
enables the mobile app to track
customers’ spending based on a
predetermined budget.

Perfect Paw: Panthers roll to 10-0
By Nathan Mollat
The day before Saturday’s 86th annual
Little Big Game, San Mateo football coach
Jeff Scheller said one of his team’s goals was
to force Burlingame to play four quarters of
The Bearcats limited the potent Panther
offense to just a pair of first-half touchdowns.
Scheller also said Friday that his team’s
problems have come mostly in the second
And that’s when things fell apart for the
Bearcats Saturday.
After taking a 14-0 at halftime, Burlingame
exploded for 28 third-quarter point and didn’t
let up in a 48-0 beating of the Bearcats in San
Mateo Saturday afternoon.
The win not only gives Burlingame its 50th
win in the annual series – Burlingame leads
50-32-4 – but it also capped a perfect 10-0 (5-
0 PAL Ocean) season for the Panthers, who
should be the No. 1 seed in the Central Coast
Section Division III tournament.
“We came out flat (in the first half),” said
Burlingame fullback Keone Keahi, who was
named the game’s Most Valuable Player after
combining for 101 yards of offense and three
“To be honest, we came in big headed.”
The one thing that wasn’t flat for the
Panthers was their defense. While the
Burlingame offense get most of the accolades,
the defensive unit has been equally dominant.
Saturday, it held San Mateo (2-3, 4-6) to just
119 yards of offense, 65 of which came on the
Bearcats’ final drive of the game against the
Panthers’ second-string defense.
“[The defense has] been the backbone of
this team all season,” said Burlingame coach
John Philipopoulos.
Said Keahi: “Our defense has been shut-
down all year. If we had the same defense this
year we had last year, I don’t know where we
would be. I know we wouldn’t be undefeat-
Saturday’s shutout was the fifth of the sea-
son and second in three weeks. That is came

more special. The shutout was in jeopardy,
however, as San Mateo finally put some
offense together on its final drive of the game,
going 65 yards from its on 19 to the
Burlingame 15.

NEW ORLEANS — Ahmad Brooks burst
into the backfield and leveled Drew Brees,
forcing a lost fumble that he thought would
seal a San Francisco victory.
Then he noticed the dreaded yellow flag
landing near the spot of his big hit.
He knew the call was on him. Soon after, the
defending NFC champion 49ers let a second
straight game slip away.
The New Orleans Saints capitalized on
Brooks’ penalty with a tying 42-yard field
goal by Garrett Hartley, then won 23-20 on a
31-yard Hartley kick as time expired on
Brooks was flagged for hitting Brees in the
head and neck on a violent sack that left Brees
with blood on his chin. There was 3:12 left
and the 49ers led 20-17.
“I was like, OK, here we go again,” Brooks
said of his animated reaction to the penalty. “It
was very frustrating. The game could have
gone a totally different direction that what it
went. I was just mad because that was a big
play in the game. We lost, and that’s probably
the reason why.”
That wasn’t the only play the 49ers regret-
ted after allowing to the Saints to kick field
goals on their last three possessions.
Following Hartley’s 21-yard field goal that cut
New Orleans’ deficit to 20-17 with 7:50 left,
wide-open San Francisco running back Frank
Gore dropped a pass from Colin Kaepernick
with a blocker in front of him and only one
Saints defender on his side of the field.
Gore was thinking 79-yard touchdown. His
miscue turned it into a third down, and the
49ers punted.
“I have to make that play,” Gore said. “I’m
a better player than that. If I had made that
play, we would have won the game.”
A week after losing 10-9 to Carolina, San
Francisco struggled again on offense, finish-
ing with 196 yards. Gore picked up 48 yards
on 13 carries. Kaepernick went 17 of 31 and

Even if they don’t know it, anyone who has
seen Menlo girls’ volleyball this season knows
Melissa Cairo.
With the Knights (27-5) appearing in their
18th straight postseason, Cairo has been the
catalyst of a squad looking to join a long lega-
cy of Menlo champions. The program has cap-
tured seven Central Coast Section crowns all
time. And it has been Cairo’s voice heard
resounding from the back row all season long
as the Knights attempt to claim their first title
since 2008.
Cairo is one of a trio of Menlo fourth-year
seniors, along with outside hitters Maddie
Huber and Maddy Frappier. Yet the group has
never advanced past the CCS semis. After
cruising past Notre
Dame Belmont,
Saturday — 25-17, 25-
17, 25-12 — the
Knights will get anoth-
er crack at it, as top-
seed Menlo advances
to Wednesday’s
Division IV semifinal against No. 4-seed
Harker at Notre Dame-Belmont. Game time is
scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
“This team is definitely the best team we’ve
had (since I’ve been here), I think,” Cairo said.
“Having all these seniors, I’ve never played on
a team with so many older girls.”
There are eight seniors in the Menlo mix,
three of whom are bound for the Ivy League
next year. Cairo, who will be attending
Brown, has the Knights firing like a well-oiled
machine. Her four fellow senior starters had
fairly equal kill distribution, Saturday. Middle
blocker Morgan Dressel (Dartmouth) scored a
match-high 12 kills, while Huber (Princeton),
Frappier, and Lida Vandermeer had nine kills
apiece. Cairo totaled 14 digs with a 2.34 pass-
ing rating.
Menlo first-year head coach Steve Cavella
had nothing but praise for his senior libero.
“Melissa is a great passer, a great defender,
also just a really fiery and emotional player,
and I think the girls respond to her positive
energy,” Cavella said. “She’s super strong,
she’s been a leader throughout the year, and I
think that she’s someone who makes a big dif-
ference on this team.”
The young Notre Dame Belmont team was
battling Menlo at net early on. The Tigers
totaled six blocks in Game 1, including four
blocks by middle hitter Stephanie Kolnes.

Burlingame’s girls volleyball team was-
n’t going to let anything stand between
them and homecoming, not even their
Central Coast Section playoff opener.
Saturday night, No. 3-seed Burlingame
(19-11) made quick work of No. 6-seed
Saratoga – 25-17, 25-18, 25-14. With the
win, Burlingame advances to Wednesday’s
Division III semifinal match with Sacred
Heart Cathedral at Valley Christian. Game
time is slated for 5:30 p.m.
With the game being played at neighbor-
ing Mills due to a scheduling conflict—
Burlingame’s homecoming dance was being
held at its home gym—the Panthers hustled
to victory in straight sets, firing 12 service
aces throughout. And following their sec-
ond quarterfinal win in as many years, the
Panthers hardly took time to celebrate.
“We have homecoming tonight,”
Burlingame junior Tatum Novitsky said.
“So, we really wanted to get out of here
tonight, and I was just ready to rock ‘em.”
After a seesaw start, Burlingame broke a
scoring deadlock when Novitsky reeled off
six straight service points. The junior hitter
went 13 for 19 from the service line, total-
ing five aces, while junior Rachel Topper
tabbed four aces.
Burlingame was intent on advancing its
offensive systems by incorporating multi-
ple attacks, and established its strategy
early. The Panthers’ first six match kills
were scored by five different players, before
senior Bianca Alvarez and junior Dana
Williams emerged to pace the team with
three kills apiece in the first set.
“One thing about our team is they are a
very slow starting team,” Burlingame head
coach Nilo Mauricio said. “So once they get
warmed up, they kind of figure things out,
and that’s when we can get done what we
need to get done on our side, offensively and
defensively. ”
Jumping out to a big lead in Game 2, the
Panthers began effectively commanding the
net. Alvarez and senior Morgan McKeever
each delivered four kills in the set, while
each pacing the team with a match-high
eight kills. Also, Williams notched seven
kills and Novitsky scored six kills in the
“In the past week we’ve been working on
a lot of different plays, spreading the ball
around so all our hitters can hit the ball
when we’re in system,” McKeever said. “So,
we’ve definitely been working on that in the
past week to put that into play for CCS.”
The Panthers rode the strong distribution
of senior Isabell Walker into the final set.
Walker tabbed 28 match assists, and demon-
strated the leadership skills that earned the
setter first-team All-League honors this sea-
son. In Game 3, a towering return from
Saratoga went long towards the backline.
Novitsky initially settled under it, but
Walker charged back to call her off at the
last second. With her back to the net,
Walker provided a perfect bump set for
Novitsky—the stronger hitter of the two—
and the junior converted the kill with an
impromptu pipe shot.
“We all really trust each other, so if some-
body calls the ball, we’re going to let them
have it,” Novitsky said. “We just trust that
they’re going to put it into good hands.”
Burlingame also received exceptional
passing from Walker, McKeever, and junior
libero Brittney Carias, which allowed the
front-row defense to do their thing in the
final set. The Panthers tabbed six blocks in
Game 3, including two by Cooper, who
scored a match-high three blocks through-
For Saratoga (18-12), the loss marks its
second CCS-quarterfinal elimination in as
many years. The Falcons finished in second
place in the Santa Clara Valley Athletic
League El Camino Division this season, and
will graduate four seniors—Julia Lee, Tivoli
Sisco, Jennifer Ho, and first-team All-
League setter Katelyn Mollahan. Saratoga
has never won a CCS championship,
advancing to the finals just once in school
history when they were defeated by Mitty in
With the win, Burlingame advances to the
Division III semis. Along with Sacred Heart
Cathedral, Aptos, and Valley Christian, this
year’s final four is comprised of the same
teams as last season, albeit with different
pairings. And just because the Panthers were
in a hurry to skedaddle to their homecoming
dance doesn’t mean they aren’t amped about
“It’s awesome,” McKeever said. “We’re
super excited. We’re ready for Sacred Heart
Cathedral [this] week.”
In Saturday’s other Division III action,
No. 2-seed Sacred Heart Cathedral downed
No. 7-seed Hillsdale – 25-16, 25-14, 25-16.
This year marks just the third ever CCS
appearance for Hillsdale.
Top-seed Valley Christian downed No. 9-
seed Terra Nova in four sets – 25-22, 16-25,
25-18, 25-19. Terra Nova, the lone team to
qualify for the postseason out of the
Peninsula Athletic League Ocean Division
this season, advanced to Saturday’s semifi-
nal by downing Notre Dame San Jose on
Wednesday, marking the first CCS win for
Terra Nova in 30 years.
No. 4-seed Aptos downed No. 5-seed
South City in straight sets – 25-19, 25-18,
25-18. It was South City’s first CCS berth
since 2002.
In the Division I bracket, No. 1-seed
Menlo-Atherton swept No. 9-seed
Cupertino – 25-14, 25-17, 25-15.
Menlo-Atherton established strong
defense at the net. Meanwhile, senior libero
Virginia Lane was digging everything that
came her way. Lane had 24 match kills while
senior hitter Pauli King fired a match-high
18 kills and junior Devin Joos tabbed 15
“They played fine,” Menlo-Atherton head
coach Ron Whitmill said. “My team tends
to be slow starting, unfortunately, but they
got things going and played well.”
With the win, M-A advances to
Wednesday’s semifinal to take on No. 5-seed
Palo Alto at Santa Clara. Game time is
scheduled for 5:30 p.m. The winner will
advance to Saturday’s championship game
at Independence to take on the winner of the
Wednesday’s semifinal match between No.
2-seed Homestead and No. 3-seed Salinas.
Whitmill said he isn’t concerned with
specifics as to who M-Aplays from here on
“It is who it is,” Whitmill said. “It’s like I
told my girls … if we do what we do on our
side of the court, they have adjust to us.”
In the Division II bracket, No. 3-seed St.
Francis defeated No. 6-seed Woodside in four
sets – 25-21, 27-25, 19-25, 25-22.

At Sterling Court, we’re
proud of what we offer.
But Burlingame’s Cooper Gindraux kept
the shutout intact by intercepting a pass in
the end zone with less than a minute to play.
“Normally, I don’t care (about the
shutout),” Philipopoulos said. “But I’m
glad it happened.”
San Mateo’s offense could never get
untracked, due in large part to injuries.
Running back Line Latu, who had missed
the last several games, played Saturday, but
he was a shell of his former self and not
completely healed. He was held to four yards
rushing on nine carries. Finau Hafoka hurt
his shoulder on the first play from scrim-
mage and later suffered an ankle injury that
knocked him out of the game. He finished
with just 14 yards on four carries.
That left a bulk of the work to Watson
Filikitonga, who rushed for 74 yards on 17
carries – 48 of which came on the Bearcats’
final drive of the game.
Philipopoulos had a lot about which to be
glad – especially in the second half. After
being held to “just” 149 yards of offense in
the first two quarters, the Panthers had 208
yards in the third quarter alone and finished
the game with 414 for the game.
“We just challenged them (at halftime) and
like they have all season long, they
responded,” Philipopoulos said of the dif-
ferences in the offense from the first to sec-
ond half.
All but 42 of those yards came on the
ground, as nine different Burlingame ball
carriers combined for 372 yards rushing.
Chi Li Tang led the way with 81 yards on
just seven carries.
“It’s the diversity (that makes our offense
so effective),” Philipopoulos said. “I think
we have six, seven kid who could easily be
starting (running) backs.”
After taking the second-half kickoff ,
Burlingame wasted little time in driving 62
yards, needing seven plays to cover the dis-
tance. Manase Palu capped the drive with an
8-yard scoring run to give the Panthers a
21-0 lead.
An interception by Burlingame’s Tommy
Dryden on San Mateo’s next drive gave the
Panthers a short field at the Bearcats’ 27. On
the next play, Keahi took a screen pass from
Avery Gindraux and turned it into a 27-yard
That gave the Panthers two touchdowns in
less than two minutes and the rout was on.
The Bearcats then fumbled the ball away
the next time they had the ball and the
Panthers cashed in again. Facing fourth-
and-1 at the 5-yard line, Burlingame’s
Griffin Intrieri not only picked up the first
down but went in for a touchdown and a 35-
0 Panthers lead.
And they still weren’t done. After forcing
San Mateo to punt, Burlingame needed just
one play to go 62 yards as Keahi exploded
through the line of scrimmage and took it to
the house for a 42-0 Panthers lead and the
fourth score of the third quarter.
With a running clock in the fourth quarter,
Burlingame added one more score as the
Panthers drove 60 yards on six plays. Duran
Andrade scored from two yards out, but the
key play was a 34-yard run from Tang.
The second half was a far cry from the first
two quarters, which featured a defensive bat-
tle between the two squads. Burlingame
finally got on the scoreboard late in the first
quarter when Robby Baumgarten scored
from five yards out on a fourth-and-1 to cap
a 25-yard, six-play drive that was set up by
a 5-yard San Mateo punt.
The Panthers doubled their lead midway
through the second quarter, with Keahi scor-
ing from three yards out to cap Burlingame’s
longest scoring drive of the day – 88 yards
on 12 plays.

With a West Catholic League title and a
spot in the Central Coast Section Open
Division hanging in the balance, the Serra
Padres took on the unbeaten Archbishop
Mitty Monarchs Saturday afternoon.
And the boys in blue and gold proved yet
again why they’re arguably the team to beat
in the entire section.
By virtue of their 31-7 win over Mitty,
Serra captured a share of the WCAL title.
They also knocked Mitty from the No. 1
seed in that Open Division and pushed them
to No. 5. That means, if they two were to
meet again this season, it was be for the
Open Division championship. For now,
No. 7 Pioneer of San Jose will visit the
Padres on Saturday afternoon to get Serra’s
latest playoff run on the road.
Hamilton Anoa’i caught three Matt
Fa’aita touchdowns passes in what was
probably Serra’s best performance of the
The Padres got on the board first when
Fa’aita threw a 17-yard TD pass to Anoa’i.
The Fa’aita to Anoa’i connection came
through once again for a 24-yard pitch and
catch to make it 14-0.
The Monarchs answered with a score of
their own to make it 14-7 at the end of the
first quarter. But right before the end of the
first half, senior Kevin McGee scored on a
5-yard touchdown run to give Serra its two-
TD lead back.
Senior kicker Steven Bodley added a 25-
yard field goal half way through the third
quarter to make it 24-7. And finally, another
Fa’aita to Anoa’i hookup on a 69-yard
touchdown pass sealed the 31-7 victory at

The 2013 Central Coast Section football
playoffs are here.
And when they kick off on Friday, San
Mateo county will represent the CCS as the
No. 1 seed in three of the five championship
Terra Nova, Burlingame and Sacred Heart
Prep earned the right to be the No. 1 seed in
the Open, Division III and Division IV
Terra Nova’s No. 1 seed in the Open
Division represents the first time a
Peninsula Athletic League school has earned
such a high seeding. At a perfect 10-0, the
Tigers will have to through a gauntlet of
West Catholic League teams to play in the
championship game Friday, Dec. 6 at San
Jose City College. First up, Terra Nova will
take on No. 8 Valley Christian in Pacifica
Friday at 7 p.m.
Junipero Serra, who captured a share of
the WCALchampionship with a dominating
win over Archbishop MItty Saturday after-
noon in the regular season finale, is the No.
2 in the Open Division. The Padres will host
Pioneer High School of San Jose Saturday,
Nov. 23 at 1 p.m. The winner will face
either Bellarmine College Prep or Wilcox.
For Terra Nova, a win means a date with
Mitty (No. 5) or Palma (No. 4).
After dismantling San Mateo in the 86th
Little Big Game, Burlingame earned the No.
1 seed in Division III. The Panthers are
searching for their first CCS title since
2003. They’ll host PAL Lake Division
champion, No. 8 Hillsdale, in a first round
matchup. That game is scheduled for a 7
p.m. start Friday night. The winner will
take on either No. 4 Christoper or No. 5 St.
Fellow PAL Ocean member Aragon got
into CCS by virtue of its win over Hillsdale.
The Dons are seeded No. 7 and will travel to
No. 2 Aptos, Friday night at 7 p.m. The
winner there will take on either No. 3 Leigh
or No. 6 Willow Glen at a time and place to
be determined.
Over in Division IV, Sacred Heart Prep
will begin its title defense as the No. 1 seed
in the bracket. But unlike last year, where
they faced rival Menlo School in the cham-
pionship game, Prep will have to get past
the Knights in the semifinals if they want to
The Gators and Menlo are the same half of
the 2013 Division IVbracket. SHP will take
on No. 8 Seaside at home, Saturday at 1 p.m.
The winner will take on either No. 4 Menlo
or No. 5 Monterey. The Knights will host
Monterey at Sequoia High School Friday
night at 7:30 p.m. The Division IV bracket
has one unbeaten team — No. 3 Carmel
who is 10-0.
The county’s last CCS representative
comes in the form of Menlo-Atherton, who
earned the No. 3 seed in what appears to be
one of the most stacked brackets for these
No. 3 M-A will host No. 6 Oak Grove
Friday night at 7 p.m. The winner will take
on either No. 7 North Salinas or No. 2 Los
Gatos. The Bears already have a win over
Los Gatos this season.
Terra Nova, SHP and Burlingame are No. 1 seeds in CCS
San Mateo County had a strong showing

Bellarmine despite taking the top two spots
and having four runners finish in the top-15
The Menlo-Atherton girls came agoniz-
ingly close, but fell just a few points short
of qualifying for the state. The Bears fin-
ished third, one spot out of advancing.
Individually, Carlmont’s Ryan Dimick

passed for two touchdowns but also was sacked three times
and threw for only 127 yards. He scrambled three times for
25 yards.
His last run was a 16-yarder that came up just 3 yards
short of a first down on third-and-long with less than two
minutes to go.
That gave Brees all the time he needed to lead a game-win-
ning drive in regulation.

Jim Harbaugh said.
HOUSTON — Oakland rookie Matt
McGloin was so good in a victory
over the Houston Texans that it raised
questions about whether Terrelle Pryor
will get his job back when he’s
The undrafted free agent threw three
touchdown passes in his first NFLstart
and the Raiders extended Houston’s
franchise-record skid to eight games
with a 28-23 victory on Sunday in
coach Gary Kubiak’s return from a
Oakland coach Dennis Allen evaded
the question when asked if McGloin
would remain the starter when Pryor
has recovered from a knee injury.
“Listen, here’s what I’m going to do
— I’m going to enjoy this win, all
right,” Allen said. “We’re going to go
back and we’ll evaluate. But he defi-
nitely did a very good job today. ”
McGloin was 18 of 32 for 197
yards. Houston’s Case Keenum, also
an undrafted free agent, was benched
after Houston’s offense stalled in the
third quarter.
McGloin threw touchdown passes of
5, 16 and 26 yards to help the Raiders
score their most points of the season.
“There is always more to prove and
more to do,” McGloin said. “I think I
got off to a good start, but we will
Kubiak wasn’t on the sidelines,
instead coaching upstairs from the
booth on doctor’s orders two weeks
after collapsing at halftime of
Houston’s game against Indianapolis.
He benched Keenum for Matt Schaub
with Houston trailing by 11 points.
Houston cut the lead with two field
goals in the fourth quarter and had a
chance to take the lead late. But
Schaub’s pass to Andre Johnson on
fourth down from the 8 was broken up
in the end zone.
Johnson and Schaub were yelling at
each other on the field after the play
and the screaming match continued on
the sidelines, a clear indication of the
frustration on a disappointing team
that was supposed to contend for a
Super Bowl.
Johnson said the argument came
because the receiver “messed up” and
didn’t finish the play.
“We just exchanged some words,” he
said. “It’s just heat of the moment.
Once we came in the locker room, we
talked about it, left it alone so I’m not
worried about that. Me and Matt have
played a lot of football together. ”
Schaub also brushed off their dis-
“It’s just emotions, emotions of the
game, a culmination of a lot of things,
but stuff we’ll keep between us,”
Schaub said.
Kubiak replaced Keenum with
Schaub after Houston’s first three
drives of the second half all ended in
punts. Schaub was terrible early this
season and hadn’t played since Oct.
13, after he was benched following an
Keenum threw for 170 yards with a
touchdown and an interception.
Schaub had 155 yards passing.
McGloin leads Raiders over Texans
announcing to his players that this was his
final ride.
Whatever moment you choose, a couple of
things are certain about South City’s 29-28
win over nemesis El Camino: one, the 2013
Bell Game will go down as one of the most
unforgettable and emotionally draining con-
tests in the rivalry’s history.
And two, as far as christening a new stadi-
um is concerned, no one does it better than
the city of South San Francisco.
The 2013 Bell Game was about as evenly
matched as it has been in recent memory. The
Warriors, despite their 0-5 run through the
Peninsula Athletic League’s Bay Division,
went into Saturday’s game not having loss to
El Camino in 20 years. But it was South
City’s struggles and injuries, coupled with
the Colts and the opening of their new foot-
ball field and subsequent hosting of the Bell
Game for the first time in its history, that
gave El Camino players the belief that this
was their season.
And up until the 5:06 mark of the fourth
quarter, when Michael Keegan bulldozed his
way for a 1-yard touchdown (and John Turner
added a 2-point conversion), it appeared El
Camino had South City’s number. The Colts
had busted the door open to begin the second
half after trading football blows with the
Warriors during the first 24 minutes of foot-
ball. One play into the second half, Brandon
Gip exploded into the South City secondary
and carried the ball 63 yards for a touchdown
that gave El Camino the 20-13 lead.
The score gave the Colts added momentum
after hanging with South City for the game’s
initial parts. The Warriors thwarted El
Camino’s initial drive, that took up double-
digit plays to begin the game but netted them
zero points. And, despite trailing 13-7 as
time was winding down in the second quarter,
South City kept plugging away with the run
game and it paid off as a last minute touch-
down gave the Warriors the lead going into
But Gip’s touchdown run right out of the
second-half gate energized El Camino. The
Colts only ran four plays in that third quarter
(as opposed to 20 for South City) but still led
20-13. A missed extra point though would
loom large in the grand scheme of things.
South City went on yet another long and
bruising drive to end the third quarter, and on
the first play of the fourth, Dupra Goodman
broke off a 27-yard touchdown run to give
the Warriors a 21-20 lead.
After an El Camino punt, the Colt defense
came up huge, forcing a turnover on downs at
the 43-yard line. It was then than Gip and
Danny Ruiz carried the ball all the way to the
1-yard line and Keegan did the honors to put
El Camino up 28-21.
But South City came right back. With five
minutes left, it took the Warriors eight plays
to go 69 yards yards. Goodman ran the ball in
from eight yards out and then South City
head coach Frank Moro made the gutsy call
and elected to go for two with 1:28 left in the
On the exact same play call that scored the
touchdown, Goodman went in to give South
City the 29-28 lead.
But El Camino wasn’t done. With 1:26 left,
Keegan drove the Colts down to the 2-yard
line with eight second left which set up a 19-
yard, game-winning field goal attempt.
Adelay of game penalty made it a 24-yard
attempt. It might not have made much of a
difference though as El Camino missed the
kick wide to the left to give South City
another Bell Game win.
After the game, Moro announced that this
was his last season as the South City head
football coach.

However, Kolnes exited early after sprain-
ing her ankle on what was, until she rolled
the ankle, probably the rally of her life.
Amid the rally, Kolnes had three consecu-
tive blocks, but Menlo junior Elisa Merten
finally elevated a kill over the outstretched
hands of the tenacious Kolnes, who landed
on a teammate on the way down. After a
brief play stoppage, the junior had to be
helped off the court.
“She came down on someone’s foot,
twisted her ankle, and that was it,” Notre
Dame head coach Jennifer Agresti said. “She
is one of our best middles, and that really
hurt us a lot.”
As Notre Dame switched from a 5-1 set to
a 6-2, Menlo started rolling, relying heavi-
ly on its stellar defense to stay in system. In
Game 2, the Knights’ back row forced one
long rally after another, allowing Menlo
hitters to bide their time to pinpoint with
an array of kill velocities.
The Tigers didn’t get a down ball against
Cairo until midway through Game 3, by
which time it was too late. Notre Dame held
its only lead of the match early in the third
set. But with her Knights trailing by one,
Dressel tabbed three consecutive kills to
give Menlo a 7-5 lead which they would not
relinquish. Notre Dame tallied just five kills
in the final set.
“I think it really came down to our pass-
ing,” Cavella said. “We have four or five
girls on this team that can pass really, real-
ly well. It allows us to do a lot of things on
offense, and today we were great.”
As was Cairo, whose vocal verve while
running the floor can give any football quar-
terback a run for his money.
“Definitely as a libero, I try to take a lead-
ing role in the back row,” Cairo said. “I’m
just calling out where their players are,
because sometimes our blockers are just
more focused on offense, and I’m only real-
ly focused on defense. So, I just get to point
out things that they might not be able to
With the loss, Notre Dame closes the year
with a 19-14 overall record. The Tigers will
graduate five seniors — Anna Tealdi,
Daniela Barbera, Emma Irvine, Kaylin
O’Leary, and Lorin Hom. However, in her
second year as head coach, Agresti has good
reason to be optimistic about the future.
Notre Dame will return all but one of its
starters next season, including three current
freshmen — Tammy Byrne, Mele Fakatene,
and Katie Smoot.
“You’re going to hear a lot more about
Notre Dame Belmont,” Agresti said. “We’re
a young squad. All our starters are pretty
much freshmen and sophomores. So, it’s
exciting for me to be able to coach that.”
On the winning side, Cavella is maintain-
ing a conservative approach to Menlo’s top
seeding in the Division IVbracket. While it
is his first year at the helm of the Knights,
Cavella brings a wealth of postseason expe-
rience from his seven years as head coach at
Crystal Springs Upland, including a
Division Vchampionship in 2010.
“We’re just going to take it match by
match, and game by game, and point by
point, and just kind of stay focused on the
present and not get too far looking ahead,”
Cavella said. “We’ll prepare and come
Monday in practice and get ready for whoev-
er we are playing.”
The winner of Menlo’s semifinal show-
down with Harker will advance to Saturday’s
championship game to play the winner of
Wednesday’s semifinal matchup between
No. 2-seed Notre Dame Salinas and No. 3-

1301 Ralston in Belmont
has been attending the dinner service for six
years. Having facilities that encouraged
human contact was a social gift, Andrews
said. Although it was only for an hour, not
having an indoor dining room will be a
hardship on Samaritan House clients, par-
ticularly with winter beginning and for
those without housing, Andrews said.
“People looked forward to not only a hot
dinner, but a warm place to sit,” Andrews
Jose Ortiz has been involved with and
attending Samaritan House’s dining serv-
ices since he was 12 years old. Sadly,
many of the clients will end up having to
eat their meals on the street, Ortiz said.
Now an adult, Ortiz is in school and
works part time. He continues to attend
the dining service two to three times a
week and volunteers as often as he can,
Ortiz said.
People want to give back, Cousenes
said. At the indoor facility clients were
happy to chip in any way they could by
helping to clean up or put away chairs,
Cousenes said.
Clients of Samaritan House’s food serv-
ice program are generally working mem-
bers of the community who struggle to
make ends meet with the county’s high
cost of living, Bent said. Its food service
programs help to supplement resources
for low-income individuals who already
struggle to pay for housing or transporta-
tion, Bent said.
“We are bound and determined to find a
location in this same area, because of lot
of these individuals are walking here. It’s
within walking distance and many of
them don’t have transportation,” Bent
Remaining accessible to clients is the
only way for Samaritan House to success-
fully help those who are in need, Bent
Samaritan House cooks all of its meals
at its main office and has several other
food programs. They have a weekend to-
go lunch program that provides an indi-
vidual with enough food to get through
the evening, Cousenes said. There is a
mobile meals program, similar to meals-
on-wheels, as well as a food pantry that
provides low-income families with full
boxes of groceries. About 80 percent of
its food comes from the Second Harvest
Food Bank and the remainder is donated
by local grocery stores, Bent said.
Samaritan House offers a range of serv-
ices to the community. With the assis-
tance from the Peninsula Health Care
District and the Sequoia Healthcare
District, it offers medical and dental care
through its free clinics of San Mateo and
Redwood City, Spiker said. It also has the
90 bed Safe Harbor Shelter for the home-
less, Bent said.
Cousenes began volunteering with
Samaritan House at a young age. He start-
ed by driving around and looking for peo-
ple who needed help. He would take an
inventory of what those in the homeless
community needed and would return with
clothes and sleeping bags, Cousenes
“You have to be in their shoes to under-
stand. Some people [in the community]
live day by day on their income,”
Cousenes said. “But we’re here to help
them no matter what.”
Samaritan House is looking for a dining
room location that could seat 75 to 100
peopl e. As the holiday season is
approaching, it is looking for food dona-
tions such as turkeys, chicken and ham to
cook and serve through its dining pro-

from San Francisco to San Jose was almost
an adventure and driving to Half Moon Bay
was a trek.
Eisenhower wanted to change this. The
two-lane highways from east to west had
to be widened to at least four lanes with
shoulders on them. The days of driving
across country in a car and getting stuck
behind a slow-moving truck or a harvest-
ing combine had to become history. The
old highways traveled from town to con-
gested town centers had to be changed
and the new interstates were planned to
go around towns thus saving much time
and money for truckers and cars.
On the Peninsula, the new interstate
was to be parallel to highways 1 and 101
where possible and hope that San
Francisco would cooperate and let the
road go through the city. That answer was
no. San Francisco is one of the few cities
that has no north-south interstate. In San
Mateo County, part of the existing
Junipero Serra Boulevard had to be torn
out so the interstate could get through
Daly City, South San Francisco and San
Because of the existing opposition to
completing the Junipero Serra
Boulevard, it was decided to travel to the
west through Crestmoor in San Bruno,
then use parts of existing Skyline
Boulevard as it progressed south through
the San Francisco Watershed and Cañada
Road. San Francisco said no to this and
opted for the interstate to go around its
wildlife preserve. San Francisco won and
delayed the connection through to
Woodside by many months.
Another big obstacle that had to be
overcome was the existence of the deep
San Mateo Creek bed that had the Crystal
Springs Dam just below the area the road
was to cross the creek. After the engi-
neers figured things out, it was achieved
with the design and construction of an
impressive bridge completed in 1969.
It was decided the bridge should honor a
prominent policeman, Eugene A. Doran,
who was killed by a man, Alexander
Robillard XIV, who was wanted for a bur-
glary he had committed. Doran had
stopped Robillard in the area of Bunker
Hill Road and Skyline Boulevard. After
fleeing the scene, Robillard was later
captured in Salt Lake City and executed
for this crime. Doran left two sons and a
pregnant wife to wonder why this sense-
less murder had to happen. The bridge
was named the Eugene A. Doran
Memorial Bridge. Eugene’s son, Lance
Cpl. Patrick M. Doran, was killed in
Vietnam Feb. 18, 1967. In August 2004,
the Senate redesignated the bridge in
memory of his son as the Officer Eugene
and Marine Lance Cpl. Patrick M. Doran
Memorial Bridge.

among the
many peo-

ened by
our recent
news. In
case you
missed it,
we issued a $1,500 reward for information lead-
ing to the arrest and conviction of the person or
persons responsible for a puppy essentially
being torn apart by another dog or dogs. We
don’t know for sure that someone intended to
bring harm to this 10-week-old pit bull puppy;
we suspect someone did. At the very least, an
owner may have failed to provide veterinary care
for their dying puppy or abandoned their puppy,
both considered animal cruelty. At the worst,
someone purposefully subjected this dog to an
attack, which would be considered an animal cru-
elty felony. The puppy was male, mostly white
with black spots; he had no collar, tag or
microchip. The exact location where he was
found was on a sidewalk at the intersection of
Cooley Avenue and Bell Street in East Palo Al t o.
If you have any information that might be help-
ful for our investigation, please call (650) 340-
7022, ext . 384. There is very little we can do for
t hi s puppy, short of finding the person responsi-
ble and handing a case to our District Attorney’s
Office for prosecution. But, we can do something
for other animals being abused or neglected.
Please know PHS/SPCA investigates all cases of
abuse or cruelty; we are the only animal-welfare
group that addresses abuse in San Mateo County.
Please continue being the voice for animals who
cannot speak. We can’t save the puppy, but we
have a center full of dogs who can be adopted and
given a second chance. If adoption doesn’t fit
your interests or lifestyle now, consider foster-
ing a shelter animal or volunteering as a dog
walker. And, of course, know that our anti-cruel-
ty work is entirely donor-funded. We receive no
funding from national animal welfare groups
though they don’t mind you thinking that gifts
trickle down — they don’t .

NEWYORK — In an unlikely battle
of sequels, “Thor: The Dark World”
bested “The Best Man Holiday” at the
box office.
Disney’s “Thor: The Dark World”
continued its box-office reign with
$38.5 million in its second week of
release, according to studio estimates
Sunday. Opening 15 years after the
original “The Best Man,” Universal’s
“The Best Man Holiday” opened
strongly with $30.6 million.

ensemble cast including Morris

more than three times the box office of
1999’s “The Best Man.” That film
opened with $9 million.

has been hammering audiences around
the globe. “Thor: The Dark World”
made $52.5 million internationally

wide total to $479.8 million. Wi t h
Chris Hemsworth as the title character
and Tom Hiddleston as the popular vil-
lain Loki, the Thor franchise has
proven to be one of Marvel’s most
Just as “Thor” approached the half-
billion mark, Warner Bros.’ space
adventure “Gravity” crossed it in its
seventh week of release.
“The Best Man Holiday” was the
only new wide-release opening over
the weekend, as the marketplace clears
out for the release of “Hunger Games:
Catching Fire.” In limited release,
Alexander Payne’s black-and-white
Midwest road trip “Nebraska” opened
in four locations with a strong
$35,000 per theater average for
Paramount Pictures.

MOSCOW — ABoeing 737 jet-
liner crashed and burst into flames
Sunday night while trying to land
at the airport in the Russian city
of Kazan, killing all 50 people
aboard in the latest in a string of
deadly crashes across the country.
The Tatarstan Airlines plane was
trying to make a second landing
attempt when it touched the sur-
face of the runway near the control
tower, and was “destroyed and
caught fire,” said Sergei Izvolky,
the spokesman for the Russian
aviation agency.
The Emergencies Ministry said
there were 44 passengers and six
crew members aboard the evening
flight from Moscow and all had
been killed. Kazan, a city of about
1.1 million and the capital of the
Tatarstan republic, is about 720
kilometers (450 miles) east of the
The ministry released a list of
the dead, which included Irek
Minnikhanov, the son of
Tatarstan’s governor, and
Alexander Antonov, who headed
the Tatarstan branch of the Federal
Security Service, the main succes-
sor agency to the Soviet-era KGB.
Some Russian air crashes have
been blamed on the use of aging
aircraft, but industry experts point
to a number of other problems,
including poor crew training,
crumbling airports, lax govern-
ment controls and widespread neg-
lect of safety in the pursuit of

cessful. Boeing said it would pro-

company said in a statement on its
A journalist who said she had
flown on the same aircraft from
Kazan to Moscow’s Domodedovo
airport earlier in the day told
Channel One state television that
the landing in Moscow had been
frightening because of a strong
vibration during the final minutes
of the flight.
“When we were landing it was
not clear whether there was a
strong wind, although in Moscow
the weather was fine, or some kind
of technical trouble or problem
with the flight,” said Lenara

BEIRUT— Thousands of Syrians
poured into Lebanon over the past
two days, taking shelter in wedding
halls and makeshift shacks after
fleeing heavy fighting in a rugged
mountain region across the border
in western Syria, U.N. and local
officials said Sunday.
The clashes in Qalamoun, an area
that stretches from north of the
Syrian capital along the Lebanese
frontier, appeared to be part of a
ed government
offensive aimed
at cutting a key
rebel supply
route and
c e m e n t i n g
P r e s i d e n t
Bashar Assad’s
hold on the
strategic corri-
dor from the capital to the coast.
Over the past month, Assad’s
forces have made headway against
the rebels on two key fronts, cap-
turing a string of opposition-held
suburbs south of Damascus and tak-
ing two towns and a military base
outside the northern city of
Aleppo. Agovernment victory in
the battle for Qalamoun would deal
a severe blow to the already belea-
guered rebels on Damascus’
Despite the recent setbacks on
the capital’s southern periphery,
the opposition remains firmly
entrenched in other areas around
Damascus and capable of carrying
out large attacks. A massive
explosion late Sunday targeting
an administrative office in the
northeastern suburb of Harasta
killed at least 31 government
troops, the Britain-based Syrian
Observatory for Human Rights
said. There was no immediate con-
firmation from government offi-
cials or state media.
Since the heavy fighting in
Qalamoun began Friday, some
10,000 Syrians have fled across
the border to the Lebanese frontier
town of Arsal, former Mayor
Bassel Hojeiri said. He said the new
arrivals have crammed into wed-
ding halls and improvised shacks.
Some families left so quickly
that they arrived in Lebanon “with-
out anything except the clothes on
their backs,” said Dana Sleiman,
who works for the United Nations
High Commissioner for Refugees.
She said at least 1,000 Syrian
families crossed into Lebanon over
the weekend, but many had not yet
registered with the U.N., so more
precise figures weren’t available.

year-old who attends Hillsdale High
School. Bonini has two sons, one is in
kindergarten and the other is in fourth
grade, both at Laurel Elementary
In March, Bonini, 41, decided to run
primarily to help address equity issues
she sees in the district. She also want-
ed to represent the area south of State
Route 92 since there aren’t any other
board members from that area.
Additionally, she believes she has the
right qualifications as a lawyer and for-
merly as a kindergarten teacher in
South San Francisco.
“Schools need balance — it’s benefi-
cial to be in a school with a mix,”
Bonini said. “It’s really hard when the
school has heavily disadvantaged stu-
dents. You can’t just keep ignoring
this, it’s been talked about, but there
hasn’t been anything done about it.”
Bonini believes this equity issue
needs to be addressed along with the
district’s overcrowding. For the past
five years, district enrollment has
grown from 1,703 students from
10,079 to 11,782.
To address overcrowding in the dis-
trict, the board put Measure P, a con-
tentious $130 million bond measure on
the ballot. It only received 46.5 percent
approval, short of 55 percent voter
approval it required. The bond’s aim
was to rebuild and expand Bowditch
Middle School to add Foster City fifth
graders and reopen Knolls Elementary
School in San Mateo for the 2016-17
school year, following a design process
and construction of about three years. It
would have cost property owners $19
per $100,000 assessed property value.
Coady, 45, said it was very difficult
for him to not support it. Normally, he
said he is behind measures to support
“Our schools are terribly underfunded
and overcrowded,” he said. “I just could-
n’t support it, the way we had planned
to purchase solar was probably not the
best way to do it. The overarching
thing was I just don’t think it was
enough; it was a Band-Aid for the
schools in our district.”
There was a lot of focus on a couple
schools, while they all need updates, he
Bonini hopes the district can move
past Measure P in a positive way and
wouldn’t support a plan to address over-
crowding without addressing equity as
well. She believes Measure P was poor-
ly written.
What motivated Coady to run?
Volunteer work throughout the years in
his children’s schools was a key to him
ending up on Laurel’s site council, then
becoming president of the Parent
Teacher Association for two years.
“I saw a lot of the challenges and
opportunities,” said Coady, who works
in management for ADP in San
Francisco. “I had a lot things I accom-
plished and am proud of. I’ve never run
for office before, but do care about
schools. It’s too easy to just go along
with the flow; I wanted to get
What is each of the candidates look-
ing forward to most?
For Bonini, it’s being involved with
decisions that impact communities.
“I want more people to understand
what the school board does,” she said.
“I want to be accessible.”
Coady said he wants to make the dis-
trict a model for the rest of the state of
California and plans to prioritize differ-
ential small group learning and expand-
ing the magnet and world language pro-
“The school board should be spend-
ing time to increase student achieve-
ment across all schools,” said Coady,
who decided to run in January. “At some
of the meetings they spend time talking
about a logo or non-essential items and
it honestly makes me angry. I want to
help the district focus only on things
that can improve student achievement.”
Curriculum is also on Bonini’s mind,
including Common Core, which she
believes will allow for more consisten-
cy across districts and even states. New
Common Core standards shift to more
project-based and team collaborative
learning, with less time spent on lec-
tures and more of an emphasis on stu-
dents using technology in classrooms.
Since 1998, California school districts
spent a significant amount of time
preparing for STAR tests. New Smarter
Balance testing, which aligns with the
new Common Core standards, will go
into effect during the 2014-15 school
“It initially struck a chord with me,”
she said. “It very much seemed like the
way I was taught to teach. It’s very dis-
cussion based. It will help with differ-
entiation of students. It’s good for a lot
of kids. Technology will be the chal-

block bounded by Middlefield Road,
Bradford Street, Jefferson Avenue and
Veterans Boulevard. However, the revi-
sions are meant to address concerns
that the tall development, particularly
the tower on Bradford Street, did not
mesh with the existing architecture’s
charm and size.
“We brought them in our office so
they could see what we would be look-
ing at it and they were very reasonable in
accommodating our suggestions,” said
Geoff Carr, an attorney and partner in the
business appealing the project.
The project at 525 Middlefield Road
calls for approximately 10,500 square
feet of commercial space for the San
Mateo Credit Union and leasing office
along with the housing in three 10-story
towers and two- to three-story podium
buildings. The condos can be leased out
for 10 years as apartments. The project
also includes three levels of unbundled
In the revised design, floors four
through 10 on the Bradford and Jefferson
towers will be shifted north 8.5 feet to
create a three-story edifice along the
Bradford Street side. The stepback at the
fourth level will create an eight-and-a-
half-foot deep open space deck of rough-
ly 1,700 square feet. The deck will replace
1,020 square feet of landscape lost from
the tower shift, according to Peter F.
Dunne of developer Downtown RWC Res,
LLC. More plantings on the deck will
break up the visual impact of the building
The original appeal argued the develop-
ment violated the provisions of the city’s
downtown precise plan and called for a
new environmental impact report because
the consolidation of county courts into
Redwood City has increased traffic and
traffic pressure in the area.
Carr said those issues are out of his
“We can’t be the conscious for the
city,” he said.
The city, however, must still accept the
design revisions. The City Council is
scheduled to hear the appeal at Monday
night’s meeting and could theoretically
reject them in favor of the plan originally
approved by the Planning Commission
in September.
“If they do that, we’ll be back to square
one,” Carr said.
Carr’s partner Kevin Frederick wrote in
a Nov. 12 letter to Planning Manager
Blake Lyon on Nov. 12 that as long as the
city confirms the modifications, there
will be no lawsuit.
“We are happy that we were able to
resolve our concerns through negotiation
with the applicant rather than litigation,”
Frederick wrote.
Assuming the City Council denied the
appeal and implements the modifications
as recommended, construction is sched-
uled to begin in January 2014 with occu-
pancy starting in late 2015 to early 2016.
The Redwood City Council meets 7
p.m. Monday, Nov. 18 at City Hall,
1017 Middlefield Road, Redwood City.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Follow the path of
least resistance. Head in whatever direction will bring
you joy. Take the time to grasp each moment and get
the most out of whatever comes your way.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Put more thought
behind your actions. You may feel the restless need
to make a change, but you must only do so for the
right reason and without introducing force.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Get in the groove
and make things happen. Your enthusiasm will spark
interest and allow you to stay in control of whatever
situation you face. Advancement can be yours.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Listen and respond
carefully. Giving in to demands will not help you take
care of your responsibilities. A change in the way you
handle pushy people will be necessary.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Emotional matters may
disrupt your plans. Make allowances for individuals
who are facing uncertainty, but don’t take a back seat.
Be brave and bold and move forward with your plans.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — A last-minute change
of plans will work in your favor. Avoid anyone trying to
push you in a direction you don’t want to go. Stick to
basics and control excess.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Take responsibility for
your actions. Be ready to call the shots and make the
changes that suit you best. Partnerships will be held
together through courage.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Your sudden leap to
action in defense of a situation or individual will
capture attention and bring you good fortune. Be
true to your beliefs and carry on.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Sit tight and do what
suits you, not what others suggest. You have more
control than you realize, so you must shy away from
making an impulsive move for someone else’s benefit.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Gauge what’s going on
around you before making a move. You must take
care of business first to ensure no one gets in your
way when it’s time to play.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Take your place in the
spotlight and call the shots. Promote your beliefs
and drum up support. Your strength of character will
attract both personal and professional interest.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — A personal relationship
or domestic situation must not be allowed to dictate
what you do. A change may be in order, but it has to
be what works for you.

BOSTON — There’s no shortage of places
for people to share memories of where they
were 50 years ago when they found out John
F. Kennedy had been assassinated. But a new
website debuting Monday aims to take the
focus from past to future by asking people
of all ages — even those who weren’t alive
when Kennedy died — to share their
thoughts about how he has inspired them.
The website is part of the JFK Library and
Museum’s commemoration of the 50th
anniversary of JFK’s death, which is Friday.
The museum also plans a new exhibit of
never-before-displayed items from his
three-day state funeral, including the flag
that draped his casket and notes written by
First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy.
Visitors to the “An Idea Lives On” site can
explore an interactive video that includes
NASA Commander Chris Cassidy, former
Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis,
comedian Conan O’Brien, Freedom Rider
Charles Person and others talking about
Kennedy’s lasting impact.
The Kennedy Library Foundation, a non-
profit that raises money to support the
library, is spearheading the project. The
foundation hopes visitors will upload their
own photos, videos, written messages and
tweets to answer the question “How do the
ideals of John F. Kennedy live on in your
life today?”
“It’s ambitious,” said Tom McNaught, the
foundation’s executive director. “He was an
ambitious president. In a way that’s how we
see this. You can’t stop trying to instill in
young people the ideas he instilled in my
All submissions will become part of the
archives at the JFK Library in Boston. The
best stories will be featured on the site.
“The stories are meant to be really per-
sonal,” said Brian Williams, vice president
and creative director of The Martin Agency,
which produced the site.
The site’s name comes from a quote in a
speech Kennedy gave in February 1963: “A
man may die, nations may rise and fall, but
an idea lives on.” It’s also inscribed on the
wall visitors to the library see when they
exit the small area of the museum that focus-
es on his assassination and walk into a
brighter area where they can learn about his
lasting impact on civil rights, public serv-
ice, civic discourse, the arts, space explo-
ration and more.
“President Kennedy stood for vitality and
optimism and hope, so we’ve made a con-
scious decision to try to have the experi-
ence be uplifting,” said Tom Putnam, the
library’s executive director.
Because of that focus, the library does not
typically do anything special to mark the
anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination.
But this year is different.
In addition to the website, a new exhibit
starts Friday that will include the flag from
his casket and the saddle, boots and sword
worn by the riderless horse that walked in
the funeral procession. Visitors will also
see notes written by Jackie Kennedy as she
made plans for her husband’s funeral and a
15-minute video with footage from the
Curator Stacey Bredhoff hopes it will help
visitors who were not alive or too young to
remember comprehend the enormity of the
shock and the mourning that followed.
Also Friday, the library will host a musi-
cal tribute featuring Paul Winter, who per-
formed at the White House with his jazz sex-
tet during Kennedy’s presidency, along with
a U.S. Navy choir and singer James Taylor.
Between songs, notable guests including
Gov. Deval Patrick will read quotes from
Kennedy’s speeches. The event is not open
to the public, but it will be streamed live on
the library’s website. It will include a
moment of silence at the time Kennedy was
Members of the Kennedy family will not
attend and instead will observe the anniver-
sary privately at home.
“We want our tone to be respectful and we
want it to have a certain reverence, but we
also want it to be hopeful and end on this
notion of what JFK stood for,” Putnam said
Website asks people to share stories of JFK legacy
DALLAS — The mementoes are every-
where, preserved for five decades by people
who wish they could forget: Letters of grief
and thanks, in a widow’s hand. An unwanted
wedding band. Arose stained with blood.
Those who were closest to events on the
day President John F. Kennedy was assassi-
nated still talk about what they witnessed as
if it happened yesterday. And they frequent-
ly mention a keepsake, some small but
often heavy burden they’ve carried since
Nov. 22, 1963 — perhaps a touchstone to
happier memories or just an artifact proving
history brushed their lives.
Some can’t even explain the items they
keep from those awful, convulsing, world-
changing 24 hours.
Dawn was approaching — it was past 6
a.m. that Friday.
In a bungalow in suburban Irving, the
only one up was Lee Harvey Oswald. He
made coffee, dressed for work, then paused
before leaving his wife, Marina, and two
young daughters. He drew most of the cash
from his pocket, removed his wedding ring
and left both behind. Gathering up a parcel
he’d retrieved from the garage, he crept out.
“Lee left a coffee cup in the sink,” recalls
Ruth Paine, whose house Marina and the
girls were staying in. Oswald had come the
previous evening to try — unsuccessfully
— to reconcile with his estranged wife.
When he departed, leaving the ring, Paine
says, “My guess is that he did not expect to
She would later retrieve the ring for inves-
tigators, and it would find its way into a
lawyer’s file for decades. Only recently was
it returned to Oswald’s widow, who put the
bitter memento up for auction. In a letter,
she explained that “symbolically I want to
let go of my past” and what she has called
“the worst day of my life.” The ring sold last
month for $108,000.
Walking from Paine’s house, Oswald
reached the home where Buell Frazier, his
co-worker, lived. He put his parcel in
Frazier’s Chevrolet for the ride to work at
the Texas School Book Depository, where
both had $1.25 an hour jobs filling orders.
Normally, Oswald would wait to be picked
up; normally, he would have carried a sack
lunch. And unlike most Fridays, he told
Frazier he would not need a ride home that
night. Then there was that package in the
backseat. When Frazier asked, Oswald said
it contained curtain rods.

TORONTO — The Toronto City Council
moved a step closer to making Rob Ford a
mayor in name only following months of
publicity surrounding his excessive drink-
ing and drug use, and will look to complete
those efforts next week when council
Ford vowed to take City Council to court
after it voted overwhelmingly Friday to
strip him of some of his powers over his
admitted use of crack cocaine, public drink-
ing and increasingly erratic behavior.
The motion, approved in a 39-3 vote, sus-
pends Ford’s authority to appoint and dis-
miss the deputy mayor and his executive
committee. The council, which lacks the
authority to force the mayor from office
unless he is convicted of a crime and jailed,
also voted to give the deputy mayor author-
ity to handle any civic emergency.
The effort will continue Monday when the
council moves to strip the mayor of most of
his remaining powers, including his office
budget. It would also appoint the deputy
mayor to lead of his executive committee.
That motion has already been signed by 28
of the council’s 44 members.
The votes capped another frenzied week of
twists and turns in a scandal that has been
the talk of Canada’s largest city and finan-
cial capital for months.
Recently released court documents show
the mayor became the subject of a police
investigation after news reports surfaced in
May that he had been caught on video smok-
ing crack cocaine. In interviews with
police, former staffers accused the mayor of
frequently drinking, driving while intoxi-
cated and making sexual advances toward a
female staffer.
Ford stirred up further controversy and
even offended Toronto’s football team when
he wore a team jersey while making a pro-
fanity-laced statement about the allegations
It has been a stunning decline for mayor
who was elected three years ago with over-
whelming support from Toronto’s conserva-
tive-leaning suburbs, where many voters
felt angry about what they considered waste-
ful spending and elitist politics at City
His mood swings were on full display
Friday as he defiantly vowed to fight the
motion in court, then conceded he under-
stood why the council took the measures.
Then, in a flash of remorse, the 44-year-
old Ford declared: “If I would have had a
mayor conducting themselves the way I
have, I would have done exactly the same
thing. I’m not mad at anybody. I take full
responsibility. ”
The mayor, a conservative who touts his
efforts to curb public spending and keep
taxes low, later made it clear he intends to
seek re-election next year.
“Councilors spoke today. The taxpayers
of this great city will have their say Oct.
27,” Ford told a crush of reporters at City
Hall, referring to next year’s municipal
elections. Nearby, a few hecklers shouted,
“Resign! Resign!”
Ford said he didn’t care that many council
members were laughing at him, noting he
won a large mandate in the 2010 election
and was laughed at for years as a councilman
before being elected mayor.
“They laughed at me for 13 years but for-
tunately 387,000 people never laughed at
me. We’ll see what happens” the mayor
Ford’s lawyer, Dennis Morris, accused the
council of attempting an illegal “coup” and
said Ford has hired a municipal law expert,
lawyer George Rust-D’Eye, to challenge it.
“Council clearly has the power to amend or
appeal its own bylaws but at the same time
it doesn’t have the legal power to restrict
the statutory responsibilities of the mayor
of Toronto,” Rust-D’Eye said.
Ford’s brother and adviser, councilman
Doug Ford, called him “the mayor of the
people” and said the rights of those who
voted for him were being trampled.
Friday’s vote capped a week featuring a
series of antics that outraged city coun-
On Thursday, Ford spouted an obscenity
while denying that he pressured a female
employee for oral sex.

TACLOBAN, Philippines — Aid workers,
heavy equipment and lifesaving supplies
flowed into regions devastated by Typhoon
Haiyan on Monday, as a global relief effort
moved into high gear.
On the ground, there were further signs
that battered communities were beginning
to shift from survival mode to one of early
recovery: markets were beginning to
reopen, though with very limited wares,
some gasoline stations were pumping and
residents were repairing damaged homes or
making temporary shelters out of the
remains of their old ones.
“The darkest night is over but it’s not yet
100 percent,” regional military commander
Lt. Gen. Roy Deveraturda said.
The Nov. 8 typhoon killed or left missing
more than 5,000 people and left 4 million
displaced, requiring food, shelter and water.
The first week of the response was
inevitable chaotic because airports into the
region were damaged and local governance
structures shattered.
At the main airport in Tacloban, a pay
loader was shifting pallets of water and
sacks of rice to trucks. On the main road,
teams were shifting debris into trucks.
Military and civilian teams from around
the world have arrived to bolster an immedi-
ate response by local people and national
The U.S. government and military have
been at the forefront in helping one of its
Asian allies.
Washington’s aid arm announced a further
$10 million, bringing to $37 million the
amount it is committed to spending.
