Ralston Hall gets $6M grant


Through challenge grant, NDNU must match funds to retrofit historic building
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Notre Dame de Namur University has


received a challenge raise $6 million in 2015 and receive a matching $6
million grant to reopen the historic
and seismically unsafe Ralston Hall.
On Monday, the Belmont school
announced Tad Taube, a philanthropist
and former member on the schools
Board of Trustees, has offered it an
opportunity to retrofit the campus centerpiece.
Ralston Hall is a gem of a building.
Its an architectural masterpiece,
its a national historic landmark and
California historic landmark and weve

had the privilege of


sitting next to it.
Its really been at
the heart of the campus,
NDNU
President
Judith
Greig said. [The
challenge is] very
daunting, but very
exciting. This is
Tad Taube
such an opportunity for the university to not only
restore this building, but to really
make friends and help us raise money.
Built in 1868, the Ralston Hall mansion became the home of the College
of Notre Dame in 1923 and eventually
housed the universitys administrative

offices until its closure in 2012. Over


the years, the campus grew around
Ralston Hall while it served as a community asset with an estimated nearly
40,000 people using the grand ballroom and facilities for events such as
weddings, conferences, dinners,
operas, musicals and more, according
to Greig and NDNU spokesman
Richard Rossi.
The historic structure is in need of a
$12 million seismic upgrade and has
sat vacant since a building inspection
revealed it needed major repairs in
2011. The school seeks a total $20
million revamp to bring it back to Notre Dame de Namur Universitys historic Ralston Hall is in

High-end home sales


surge in Southern California
LOS ANGELES In an exception to
Southern Californias lackluster real
estate market, sales of homes costing
$2 million or more are hitting record
levels, according to a report.
At least 1,431 homes worth $2 million or more were sold in the sixcounty region during the third quarter,
said the Los Angeles Times, citing
figures from CoreLogic DataQuick.
Thats up 14 percent from the third
quarter of 2013 and well ahead of
any three-month period in the housing bubble years of the mid-2000s.
Sales worth $10 million or more are
on pace this year to double their number from the heights of the housing
bubble.
Low interest rates, a strong stock
market and an influx of cash from
overseas are boosting demand for
high-dollar homes, the newspaper
said.
The spike comes as the broader market has plateaued, with prices still
about one-fifth below their pre-crash
highs and sales at less than two-thirds
their 2005 pace.

Search for floating Pacifica body suspended


Missing person seen face down near Rockaway Beach, officials seek publics help
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Coastal search and rescue teams have suspended the search for a missing person
whose body was briefly seen floating face
down in the water near Rockaway Beach in
Pacifica Sunday evening.
The U.S. Coast Guard, Pacifica firefighters and Pacifica and Daly City police conducted a five-hour search for the suspected
surfer in a black wet suit who was originally
reported about 100 yards from shore around
4:48 p.m., according to a Coast Guard official and county dispatcher.
The incident started when concerned
beachgoers found a surfboard washed ashore
and saw a body floating in the water, said
Pacifica police Capt. Dan Steidle. One of
the first sergeants on scene confirmed seeing a body, but it submerged shortly after,
Steidle said. In cases such as this, its not
uncommon for remains to submerge and not
appear for several days, Steidle said.
Although police have a good idea who the
deceased is, Steidle said he couldnt comment or confirm the identification until the
body is recovered.

UC Berkeley students
leave campus in protest
BERKELEY UC Berkeley students
fighting tuition hikes system-wide walked
out of classes and around the city in a
peaceful protest.
Over the last five days, several dozen
students have peacefully camped at UC
Berkeleys Wheeler Hall, with as many as
150 students there at times.

Despite saturating an 18-square mile zone


by launching a 47-foot rescue boat and a
helicopter equipped with night vision and
infrared capabilities, the body wasnt seen
again and the search concluded around 10
p.m. due to conditions Monday night, said
U.S. Coast Guard Lt. j.g. Jacob Aulner.
We suspended the search for the time
being until further information is gathered.
Local fire and police are working with people in the area to identify who the missing
person was, Aulner said. We definitely
want to stress if anyone has information
about a possible missing surfer from
Rockaway Beach that they contact the
Coast Guard or 911.
Fire and police combed the beach during
the aerial and water search efforts and
although a surfboard was found, its difficult
to identify to whom the board belonged,
Aulner said.
The search remains active, but suspended,
and the Coast Guard deployed two buoys
capable of collecting ocean condition data
that may assist in possible future search
efforts, Aulner said.
[Theyre] marker buoys that will send
information to the Coast Guard based on different sea conditions and drifting condi-

tions so they can better plan their search


patterns. [The buoys] help simulate where a
person would float if they were in the
water, Aulner said.
Aulner said he couldnt speculate on
whether the chances of recovering a body
are less likely as more time passes because
each operation is different and depends on
weather conditions.
The death comes shortly after Thomas
Ormsby, a 60-year-old Pacifica man, who
drowned at the nearby Linda Mar Beach
while surfing with his son Nov. 3.
Surfers at the beach reported to police
they saw a surfboard fly into the air before
Ormsbys body was found around 9:30 a.m.
With winter swells picking up on the
coast, Steidle cautions swimmers to use care
when entering the ocean.
Our message is always surf with somebody. Just like we did in school, use the
buddy system, Steidle said. And just
remember that even experienced surfers
report problems sometimes because the
ocean can be unpredictable. So be careful.
Anyone with information about the identity of the missing person is asked to call
911 or the Coast Guard Sector San Francisco
Command Center at (415) 399-3451.

Assistant U.S. attorney named


to California Supreme Court
By Judy Lin
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO In his effort to diversify the judicial


branch, Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday nominated a deputy
assistant U.S. attorney general to fill a
vacant seat on the California Supreme
Court.
The governor selected Leondra Kruger,
a 38-year-old Los Angeles native, to
replace Associate Justice Joyce Kennard,
who retired earlier this year.
If approved, Kruger would become the
second African-American woman to serve
Leondra Kruger on the high court.
Leondra Kruger is a distinguished
lawyer and uncommon student of the law, the Democratic
governor said in announcing the nomination. She has won
the respect of eminent jurists, scholars and practitioners
alike.
Its Browns third appointment to the court this term.
Earlier this year, he nominated Mariano-Florentino
Cuellar, 42, a Mexican-born Stanford law professor to be an
associate justice on the seven-member court. In 2011, he
appointed University of California, Berkeley law professor
Goodwin Liu, 44, after Republicans in the U.S. Senate
blocked his nomination to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of
Appeals.
Kruger serves in the legal counsel office of the U.S.
Department of Justice. Previously, she was acting principal
deputy to the solicitor general and argued 12 cases on behalf
of the federal government before the U.S. Supreme Court.
I am deeply honored by Gov. Browns nomination,
Kruger said in a statement provided by the governors
office. I look forward to returning home to California and,
if confirmed, serving the people of California on our states
highest court.
Kruger is a Democrat but that was not a consideration in
her nomination, Brown spokesman Evan Westrup said.
It was a surprising choice but one that will enhance
Californias stature through its diversity, said Gerald
Uelmen, a Santa Clara University law school professor. If
approved, Kruger will further bring down the courts average
age and California will have one black, one Hispanic and
three Asian justices. Four women will serve.

winds became a menace, threatening to knock down trees and power
lines.
Forecasters, meanwhile, defended the National Weather Service
following criticism from Gov.
Andrew Cuomo, who accused the
agency of failing to anticipate
how bad Buffalos epic snowstorm
would be.
Cuomo, in the region for a
sixth straight day, said statedeployed pumps and sandbags
were in place as rain and temperatures over 60 rapidly melted
the snow. Residents shoveled

backdrop of white drifts.


By late morning, minor to moderate flooding was reported in several creeks, but nearby homes were
largely spared, and the sewers in
Buffalo and elsewhere were handling the runoff.
The snowfall across the Buffalo
area ranged from less than a foot
to about 7 1/2 feet, depending on
where the bands of snow coming
off Lake Erie hit hardest.
Forecasters said the potential
for flooding remained through
Wednesday morning.
As of this moment, the situation is not as problematic as it
could have been, Cuomo said a
day after advising residents to
pack a bag in case they needed to
leave their homes. But again, a
question mark until we know fully
what Mother Nature holds for us
throughout the rest of the day and
tomorrow.

FDA strengthens warning on device linked to cancer


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TRENTON, N.J. U.S. regulators on


Monday strengthened their warning against use
of a once-popular device for gynecologic surgery that can spread unsuspected cancer, saying
its risk is only justified in a fraction of patients.
The Food and Drug Administration updated

its April safety warning, saying doctors


should not use the devices, called laparoscopic power morcellators, for performing a hysterectomy or removing uterine fibroids in
the vast majority of women.
The FDAs Dr. William Maisel said there are
safer options for the procedures for most
patients. But he said the device may be appro-

priate for a small number of women who need


to have fibroids removed, but want to protect
their uterus in case they decide to have a baby
in the future. Fibroids are benign, but sometimes painful, tumors in the wall of the
uterus. Maisel said the FDA is recommending
that makers of laparoscopic power morcellators immediately include in the detailed prod-

uct guide new safety information: a boxed


warning on the risks and two contraindications on when the devices should never be
used, which would cover most patient cases.
The FDAs primary concern is the safety of
patients, Maisel told reporters during a teleconference. We want all women with uterine
fibroids to be aware of this risk.

GOP wisdom shifts on immigration


By Steve Peoples and Jill Colvin
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BOCA RATON, Fla. The conventional


wisdom in the Republican Party is changing.
Less than two years ago, party leaders
solemnly declared after an exhaustive study
that the GOP must embrace and champion
comprehensive immigration reform. It was
critical for the partys survival, they said, to
address an issue that was paramount to the
nations surging Hispanic population. But
as President Obama issued a sweeping immigration order last week, some of the
Republican Partys most prominent governors likely presidential candidates among
them described immigration reform as little more than an afterthought.
This issue is probably not in the top 10
of most voters in America, Wisconsin Gov.
Scott Walker, who is considering a 2016
White House bid, said alongside nodding
colleagues at the Republican Governors
Association annual conference in Florida.
Walker dismissed the Democratic presidents
order that shields as many as five million
immigrants from deportation as a trap
designed to divert attention from the real
issues in this country.
The comments reflect a dramatic shift
among some GOP leaders emboldened by

Republicans ought to stand up to a president who is trying to


make himself an emperor. If we lose a vote or two over that, so be it.
Henry Barbour, a Republican operative

this months midterm success just as the next


presidential contest gets underway. Having
claimed the Senate majority in the lowturnout November campaign, the sense of
urgency that dominated Republican leadership after losing the White House in 2012
has all but disappeared.
The evolution presents risks, however, for
Republicans competing in a 2016 election
that will draw a much larger and more diverse
electorate especially in a handful of swing
states where the Hispanic population is
quickly growing.
The contrast between the parties has never
been clearer.
Prospective Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton praised
Obamas order as an historic step.
Now, she said in a tweet, lets turn to
permanent bipartisan reform.
And as Hispanic leaders cheered the order,
potential Republican presidential candidates
threatened lawsuits, shutdowns and even
impeachment but no immigration policy
of their own.

Around the nation


Democrats name three
finalists to host 2016 convention
WASHINGTON Democrats narrowed the list of contenders for their 2016 national convention to three cities
on Monday, announcing the partys next presidential candidate will be formally nominated in New York City,
Philadelphia or Columbus, Ohio.
The Democratic National Committee said convention bids
made by Birmingham, Alabama and Phoenix had been eliminated.
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Florida congresswoman, announced the finalists in an email to
Democrats and said the event would be held either the weeks
of July 18, July 25 or August 22. She said the DNC expects
to announce the host city in early 2015.
The three remaining cities could offer an appealing backdrop for Hillary Rodham Clinton, the leading Democratic
presidential contender should she seek the White House
again.

The Republican criticism has focused on


the presidents decision to act unilaterally,
although political strategists acknowledged
the distinction may matter little to Hispanic
voters come 2016.
Republicans ought to stand up to a president who is trying to make himself an emperor. If we lose a vote or two over that, so be
it, said Henry Barbour, a Republican operative who helped author the very report calling for his party to embrace immigration
reform after Hispanic voters swung sharply
against the GOP in the 2012 presidential
election.
Republicans routed Democrats in this
months midterm elections, although most
of the competitive contests played out in
states and congressional districts with small
Hispanic populations. Nationally, the share
of the Hispanic vote is surging, especially in
key swing states like Colorado, Florida and
Nevada.
In the last presidential contest, Obama
won 71 percent of Hispanic voters compared
to Republican nominee Mitt Romneys 27

percent, according to exit polls. Democrats


advantage was far smaller against former
President George W. Bush, a Republican who
tried unsuccessfully to champion immigration reform and even spoke conversational
Spanish.
Since the Bush years, however, conservatives have emphasized border security while
aggressively resisting reforms that include a
pathway to legal status for the estimated 12
million immigrants in the country illegally.
Romney in 2012 called on such people to
self-deport, a position that was popular
with conservatives but haunted him in the
general election.
Shame on us as Republicans, South
Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said on
Sunday, citing House Republicans resistance to an immigration bill approved by the
Senate.
Republican Hispanic leaders who opposed
Obamas plan predicted Republicans would
struggle again in 2016 if they simply attack
the executive order without offering their
own solutions. The party needs to address the
millions of immigrants in the country illegally instead of simply focusing on border
security, said Alfonso Aguilar, who worked
in the George W. Bush White House and now
leads the Latino Partnership for
Conservative Principles.

Grand jury doesnt indict


Ferguson cop in shooting
By Jim Salter
and David A. Lieb
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

FERGUSON, Mo. A grand jury


declined Monday to indict white
police officer Darren Wilson in the
death of Michael Brown, the
unarmed, black 18-year-old whose
fatal shooting sparked weeks of
sometimes-violent protests and
inflamed deep racial tensions
between many African-Americans
and police.
Within minutes of the announcement by St. Louis Countys top
prosecutor, crowds began pouring
into Ferguson streets to protest the
decision. Some taunted police,
shattered windows and vandalized
cars. Several gunshots were also
heard. Officers released smoke and
pepper spray to disperse the gatherings.
Prosecuting Attorney Bob
McCulloch said the jury of nine
whites and three blacks met on 25
separate days, hearing more than
70 hours of testimony from about
60 witnesses, including three med-

ical examiners and experts on


blood, toxicology and firearms.
He stressed that jurors were the
only people who heard every witness ... and every piece of evidence. He said many witnesses
presented conflicting statements
that were inconsistent with the
physical evidence.
These grand jurors poured their
hearts and soul into this process,
he said.
As McCulloch was reading his
statement, Michael Browns mother, Lesley McSpadden, was sitting
atop a vehicle listening to a broadcast of the announcement. When
she heard the decision, she burst
into tears and began screaming
before being whisked away by supporters.
The crowd with her erupted in
anger, converging on the barricade
where police in riot gear were
standing. They pushed down the
barricade and began pelting police
with objects, including a bullhorn.
Officers stood their ground.
At least nine votes would have
been required to indict Wilson. The

grand jury met in secret, a standard
practice for such proceedings.
Speaking for nearly 45 minutes,
a defensive McCulloch repeatedly
cited what he said were inconsistencies and erroneous accounts

from witnesses. When asked by a


reporter whether any of the
accounts amount to perjury, he
said, I think they truly believe
thats what they saw, but they didnt.

The prosecutor also was critical


of the media, saying the most significant challenge for his office
was a 24-hour news cycle and an
insatiable appetite for something
for anything to talk about.

Hagel steps down as Pentagon chief


By Julie Pace and Robert Burns
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Defense Secretary


Chuck Hagel announced Monday he is stepping down, leaving under pressure following a rocky tenure in which he has struggled to break through the White Houses
insular team of national security advisers.
During a White House ceremony, Obama
said he and Hagel had determined it was an
appropriate time for him to complete his
service.
Hagel is the first senior Obama adviser to
leave the administration following the
sweeping losses for the presidents party in
the midterm elections. It also comes as the
presidents national security team has been
battered by crises including the rise of
Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria and
Russias provocations in Ukraine.
The president praised Hagel, a
Republican who grew close to Obama while
they both served in the Senate, as an
exemplary defense secretary who forged a
strong bond with troops stationed around
the world. Hagel, who served in the
Vietnam War, is the first enlisted combat
veteran to serve as defense secretary.
Chuck Hagel has devoted himself to our
national security and our men and women in
uniform across six decades, Obama said.
Among the leading contenders to replace
Hagel is Michele Flournoy, who served as
the Pentagons policy chief for the first
three years of Obamas presidency.
Flournoy, who would be the first woman to
head the Pentagon, is now chief executive
officer of the Center for a New American
Security, a think tank that she co-founded.
Others mentioned as possible replace-

ments include Ash Carter, the former deputy
defense secretary, and Robert Work, who
currently holds that post.
The timing of Hagels departure sets up a
potential confirmation fight in the Senate.
Republicans, who will take control of the
body next month, have been deeply critical
of the presidents foreign policy.
While Obama has sought to consolidate
foreign policy decision-making within the
White House, advisers have privately worried about Hagels ability to communicate

the administrations positions. There have


also been concerns that Hagel wasnt
proactive or engaged in Cabinet meetings
and other national security discussions.
In what appeared to be an effort to refute
that criticism, Obama said Monday that
Hagel had always given it to me straight
during their private conversations in the
Oval Office.
Hagel has had his own frustrations with
the White House. In recent weeks, he sent a
letter to national security adviser Susan

Quality Management District.


Sims agreed to the stipulation but did not
admit any wrongdoing. Under the terms of
the settlement, Sims will pay $2,393,814
total $825,000 to DTSC for civil penalties and reimbursing investigative costs;
$125,00 for environmental enforcement
and training; and, at least $1,443,814 to
upgrade the facility beyond current requirements.
The upgrades include constructing buildings to enclose the metal shredder, the
screening unit and associated magnets,
improving the air pollution control system
and adding more perimeter fencing.
Enclosing the facility, will further protect the community and the environment by
controlling the releases of metal-contaminated waste from the shredding operations,
Miriam Ingenito, acting director for DTSC,

said in a prepared announcement of the settlement.


Until the upgrades are finished, Sims will
inspect private property, sidewalks and
streets near the facility to remove any light
fibrous material deposits.
Sims has already implemented a number
of improvements to reduce the contamination risk, such as installing more windscreen and fencing and modifying the layout
of certain conveyors, and voluntarily
agrees to the additional measures, according
to Rodby.
Sims remains committed to environmental stewardship and improvement at
its Redwood City facility and is committed to continue to work closely with
the community for the common betterment of local industry, commerce and residents in Redwood City, Rodby said in a

Rice in which he said Obama needed to


articulate a clearer view of the administrations approach to dealing with Syrian
President Bashar Assad. The letter is said
to have angered White House officials.
Sen. John McCain, the Arizona
Republican who is poised to become chairman of Armed Services Committee, said
Hagel has been frustrated with aspects of
the administrations national security policy and decision-making process.
His predecessors have spoken about the
excessive micromanagement they faced
from the White House and how that made it
more difficult to do their jobs successfully, said McCain, referring to public criticism from Robert Gates and Leon Panetta.
Chucks situation was no different.
Hagel submitted his resignation letter to
Obama on Monday morning. The 68-yearold said he had agreed to remain in office
until a successor is confirmed by the
Senate.
Hagels aides assert that he is leaving at
an appropriate juncture, after having
brought to fruition this year several major
initiatives on nuclear weapons management and as well as reforms to the military
justice system and to the military health
system. But his departure also coincides
with a period of great uncertainty over the
course of the administrations campaign to
defeat the Islamic State group, as well as
worry over Russias actions in Ukraine.
Hagel served as senator from Nebraska
and became a critic of U.S. involvement in
Iraq. After Obama nominated him to succeed
Leon Panetta as defense secretary in his
second term, Hagel struggled through a
confirmation hearing that raised early concerns about him within the White House.

In September, Sims Metal Management
was fined $189, 500 by the U. S.
Environmental Protection Agency and the
U.S. Department of Justice for violating the
federal Clean Water Act by polluting San
Francisco Bay with scrap metal debris.
Sims also made headlines last year
because of two fires, one arson, within two
months at the Redwood City facility. The
company implemented new prevention
policies like shredding to the ground,
adjusting receiving hours, working with the

Letters to the editor


Immigrants need to
respect our country
Editor,
President Obamas ideas and actions
turn my stomach and my lifelong
Democratic thinking becoming a conservative Republican. I am not alone.
This attitude is becoming more popular every day.
The continuous frustration builds
when hearing and reading about
Obamas amnesty plan. Allow millions of illegal immigrants to live in
the United States, obtain any and all
government assistance they need free
of charge and continue having children for the benefits. In return, they
are not expected or required to repay a
penny.
Even more frustrating, these people
do not show the minimum amount of
respect by learning our number one
language, English. The ability to
read, write and speak a countrys
prominent language one chooses to
live in shows respect for that country.
The United States has made it too
simplified for any illegal resident to
come across borders, settle and continue to live without requiring
English for daily use. All residents
should be able to bank, make purchases and complete their own government forms without needing an
interpreter or written in their own
language. These millions of people
have no true respect for our country.
They see it as an escape for obtaining
free money/benefits.
I am a U.S. citizen born and raised
in California, mid-50s and have
worked since I was 15 years old. I
cannot obtain the majority of benefits these illegal immigrants get.
Is it not time we require respect
from these illegal immigrants. Read,
write and speak English first before
allowing government assistance?

Obama is a despot
Editor,
The president, along with his sycophants in Congress and the media, is
spinning the amnesty issue as one
of compassion for the poor illegal
immigrants. Minus the spin, what we
have is a presidential pardoning of 5
million criminals who entered our
country illegally, including Mexican
gangmembers, Islamic terrorists,
child molesters, thugs, etc. while
simultaneously committing the
American people to paying for their

potential incarcerations.
Egregious as this is, it is not the
main issue. In one fell stroke, Obama
has eviscerated our Constitution.
Though he makes himself out to be a
hero who bravely acts without
Congress, his action is that of a despot. He has dispensed with the rule of
law, and violated the separation of
powers that is the hallmark of our
constitutional republic.
In truth, his act is not only unconstitutional, it is treasonous. Even the
illegals who are now rejoicing at
their good fortune should take note:
Obamas lawless gift to them in
part a cynical ploy to garner future
Democratic voters undoes the
America they sought. Unless this
tyrannical overreach is halted,
America is no longer a free, representational republic, but on track to
becoming Mexico North.

The Republican
lies are now exposed
Editor,
Just in case America missed the
news, the lies and smears propounded
by Republican political hacks toward
President Obama and Hillary Clinton
regarding the Benghazi tragedy have
been exposed once and for all.
And those smears, repeatedly promoted by conservative letter-writers
to the Daily Journal like Keith de
Fillipis, have been exposed (reluctantly) by the Republicans themselves.
Late Friday, the GOP-controlled
House Intelligence Committee quietly
released a report that found the Obama
administration, the CIA and the military all acted properly after the
Benghazi attack. To quote the AP
story on the report, the two-year
investigation of the politically
charged incident determined that there
was no intelligence failure, no delay
in sending a CIA team, no missed
opportunity for a military rescue.
Thats exactly what six previous
investigations, many of them by
Republicans, had found.
The report also found that it was
intelligence analysts, not the White
House, who provided the inaccurate
information that Susan Rice reported
on the Sunday talk shows.
So the issue is dead.
There will, of course, be no apologies from the Obama-hating conservatives who have been making polit-

Contrasting writing styles


Editor,
People should express their own
opinions. Hopefully they do some
research, collect some facts and arrive
at a reasonable viewpoint. On the
Nov. 22 opinion page of the Daily
Journal, are two contrasting styles in
delivering a point of view. Jonathan
Madison delivers a solid review of the
political results of the recent election
(Not whos right, but whats right
in the Nov. 22 edition of the Daily
Journal). He is articulate, factual and
courteous to his readers.
Mike Brown of Burlingame
expresses his negative opinion of
President Obama by name-calling and
assertions of what he believes has
happened or might happen in the
future (Browns letter King Obamas
immigration fail in the Nov. 22 edition of the Daily Journal). Mr. Brown
uses only vitriol, with no facts or
accurate details supporting his position. He insults the readers of his letter. Maybe folks wont bother reading
future letters from Mike Brown.

Tom Elliott

Courage, compassion
and immigration reform
Editor,
In his speech on immigration
reform, President Obamaissued a
strong and stirring challenge to the
conscience of America: Are we ready
and willing to do the right thing, or
are we going to treat our broken
immigration system as a political
football? In putting a human face on
the anxiety and fear of living and
working as a responsible member of
the community while being an undocumented immigrant, the answer
becomes clear.

o, Pablo Sandoval is kung fu-ing his way to the


East Coast, trading his orange and black for a
decidedly red pair of sox.
At least now we know.
By Monday afternoon, the back and forth between the
media and Sandovals agent and trusted sources in the
Boston Red Sox club was reaching a fever pitch while
the rest of baseball-loving America waited with more
anticipation than drummed up by the Ferguson grand
jury. Will he? Wont he? How could he?
Even if Panda had decided to curl up in San Franciscos
tree for another five seasons, one thing is certain:
Situations like this are exactly why a fan should never,
ever wear a jersey with a specific players name on the
back. As any tattoo aficionado bearing creative
coverups of ex-flames names on their skin will tell
you, things have a way
of changing. Absolute
certainty today can be
absolute regret another.
Granted, there are
exceptions to the tattoo rule. Mom, your
kids, your dogs
these are names that
will likely stand the
test of time. The same
goes with jerseys.
Classics surpass the
whim of any given season Willie Mays,
Will Clark, some might
even throw Barry
Bonds in there but try an asterisk for added irony.
Otherwise, plunking down dough for the flavor of the
month on the mound or in the field is courting possible
tragedy both in finances and esteem. Jerseys, like all
sports swag, aint cheap and nobody wants to be the guy
or girl in the stadium seats looking like theyre clueless
about the current roster.
The public can turn on even the most darling of
favorite players, particularly if the exit feels personal
or the individual doesnt know when to button his
mouth. Notice not too many folks are running around
wearing Brian Wilson jerseys. Even that Wilson garden
gnome once so coveted hasnt seen the light of day at
my house for a long time.
The one silver lining is that at least saying goodbye
to a baseball jersey is a lot less painful than erasing
body art sleeves.
Point is, no matter how much we love our boys of
summer and buy into the marketing schemes of how
were all in this together, the truth is that the allure of a
green monster and Im talking something a little
more personally enriching than Fenway Park here
can eclipse even the brightest fan base adoration.
This will surely break the hearts of every person who
invested in a full-body panda costume but, again, that is
the risk one takes. Just ask The Melkmen whose
white-clad rising stars as bleacher stalwarts burnt out
after Melky Cabrera received a 50-game suspension for
doping. At my final post-season game at AT&T this
year, I briefly thought they had a resurgence after doing
a double take at a young man dressed all in white and
sporting a white hat. Nope, turns out it was a concession worker taking a break from the Ghirardelli hot
fudge sundae stand.
But while a scandal like Cabreras is often a sucker
punch for fans, trades or deals like Sandovals contract
should be an expected part of the deal.
This doesnt mean keeping the Giants craziness at
bay. Unapologetically keep Smoke on the Water as a
ring tone a dozen years after Robb Nens departure. Buy
every version of a Giants cap, beanie and scarf. Paint
your face, perfect posterboard signs extolling kale
power and do everything short of naming the dog after
Buster Posey (although with his deal chances are good
the pooch could wear the moniker for the long haul).
Just dont expect that love alone is enough to keep
everything, and everybody, as is always. Pablo might
leave his heart in San Francisco but every other part of
him is headed to Beantown where he will undoubtedly
continue to leave his mark. Im just glad he didnt leave
one on my game day gear.

NEW YORK The stock market


eked out another record close Monday
as investors remained confident that
stimulus from central banks would
revive global growth. Retail stocks
rose ahead of the crucial holiday season.
Stocks have surged following a
slump that lasted from mid-September
to mid-October. The rally has been
driven by optimism that central
banks in Europe, China and Japan
will invigorate economic growth outside the U.S.
You clearly have momentum favoring stocks right now, said Russ
Koesterich, chief investment strategist at Blackrock.
The Standard & Poors 500 index
rose 5.91 points, or 0.3 percent, to
2,069.41. The index has climbed for
seven of the last eight days and is at
an all-time high, having gained
almost 12 percent this year.
The Dow Jones industrial average
rose 7.84 points, less than 0.1 percent, to 17,817.90. The Nasdaq composite gained 41.92 points, or 0.9
percent, to 4,754.89.
On Monday, the gains were led by
the so-called consumer discretionary
sector, which includes retailers such
as Coach, Urban Outfitters and Gap.
These stocks should benefit most if

the consumers go on a spending spree


this holiday season.
Coach rose 95 cents, or 2.6 percent, to $37.41 as analysts at Stifel
reiterated their belief that the maker
of luxury clothing and accessories is
doing the right things to reinvigorate the brand. The analysts believe
that the stocks price could climb as
high as $47. The stock is down 32
percent for the year.
Telecommunications stocks were
among the days biggest losers.
Verizon and AT&T slumped after analysts at Citigroup published a gloomy
review of the sector and predicted a
tough year ahead for the two phone
giants.
Verizon fell 71 cents, or 1.4 percent, to $49.50. Citigroup cut its outlook on the stock to neutral, predicting that the companys earnings
will come in lower than most Wall
Street analysts expect. Revenue
growth at the big telecommunication
companies could crimped by more
intense competition and higher
prices for wireless spectrum. AT&T
dropped 58 cents, or 1.6 percent, to
$34.70.
Stocks were still riding momentum
from Friday, when Chinas central
bank lowered a key interest rate and
European Central Bank President
Mario Draghi said he was willing to
step up the banks efforts to stimulate
the regions struggling economy.
Oil fell ahead of a crucial meeting in

Vienna on Thursday of the


Organization of Petroleum Exporting
Countries. Traders will be looking for
a possible agreement to cut production to shore up prices. The price of
crude has tumbled 26 percent since
June as producers kept output stable
while demand in Europe and other
markets weakened.
Benchmark U.S. crude fell 73 cents,
or 1 percent, to $75.78 per barrel on
the New York Mercantile Exchange.
Brent crude, a benchmark for international oils used by many U.S. refineries, fell 68 cents to close at $79.68 a
barrel on the ICE Futures exchange in
London.
In other energy futures trading on
the NYMEX, wholesale gasoline fell
2.3 cents to $2.033 a gallon, heating
oil fell a penny to $2.395 a gallon
and natural gas fell 11. 5 cents to
$4.151 per 1,000 cubic feet.
The slump in energy prices bodes
well for the upcoming holiday shopping season, said Jennifer Ellison, a
principal of San Francisco-based
Bingham, Osborn & Scarborough.
She predicts that any money that consumers save at the gas pump is likely
to be spent, rather than saved.
The falling price of oil affects consumers in a lot of different ways, but
most importantly youve got more
money in your pocket, said Ellison.
That has a big impact especially at a
time like holiday season when people
are spending anyway.

Wish granted: Same day delivery for the holidays


By Mae Anderson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK A procrastinators holiday wish come true: Presents ordered at the
last minute can now show up under the
Christmas tree that same day.
Amazon, Target and Macys and other
retailers are offering speedier delivery,
including overnight and same-day options
that will continue even past the holidays.
The focus on faster shipping is one way

retailers are catering to shoppers whove


become increasingly finicky and impatient. Since the recession, its not enough
to get lower prices; they want the deepest
discounts. And when it comes to ordering
online, orders need to be shipped fast.
Ill pay extra to get something right
away, says Wendy Connors, a 47-yearold mother of three who lives in Menlo
Park, California.
Quick delivery is important for retailers
as they head into the winter holiday shopping season, a time when they can make

up to 40 percent of their annual sales. U.S.


shoppers are expected to spend $61 billion online in November and December,
according to research firm comScore.
Retailers cant afford a repeat last year
when UPS and FedEx failed to deliver some
packages by Christmas due to a combination of poor weather and overloaded systems, causing angry customers. Neither of
the top two deliverers said how many
packages were delayed, but noted it was a
small share of overall holiday shipments.
Forrester Research analyst Sucharita

Mulpuru fears that the industry could be


ill-prepared for the influx of online ordering again this year. She points out that the
growth UPS and FedEx are forecasting this
season is below growth estimates for
online spending by the retail industry.
UPS forecasts it will deliver 585 million
packages in December, an 11 percent
increase over 2013, and FedEx expects to
deliver 290 million packages, an 8.8 percent increase from last year. But research
firm ComScore expects online spending
will grow 16 percent to $61 billion.

Tigers sophomore tames CCS Smith helps


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

During Notre Dame Belmont volleyballs Central


Coast Section Division IV semifinal win over Menlo
last Wednesday, sophomore Tammy Byrne scored a
painful block on a ball fired straight down on her
right thumb.
Byrne kept the knowledge of the injury to herself.
Her fortitude paid off. Not only did she go on to produce her best match of the year in Notre Dames fourset win over Menlo. By Saturday, Byrne and the Tigers
had the CCS Division IV title in their sights. And as
they led 20-13 in Game 3 of an eventual sweep of
Harker, Byrne turned to senior middle blocker Maggie
McDonald and nonchalantly said: We got this.
It hit me while I was talking to Maggie (between
points) in the third set, Byrne said. I actually said:
Five more points to the banner.
At match point, Byrne dug a Harker attempt Lisa
Morabe set for Smoot, who spiked a cross-court shot
off the top of the net and over before a Harker touch
sent it careening out of bounds to spark the Notre
Dame celebration.
That last point, it was all a blur, Byrne said.
Byrne turned in a solid championship-match performance with 10 kills, six digs and four blocks to
help Notre Dame to its fourth all-time championship
in program history and the first since 2006. It is also
the first career championship for third-year head
coach Jen Agresti.
For Byrnes all-around excellence in Notre Dames
two most crucial matches of the season, she has been
named the San Mateo Daily Journal Athlete of the
Week.
It was last Wednesdays performance in the semifinal victory that stands out as one of Byrnes best of
the season. Her ability to soldier through the thumb
injury allowed her to notch a double-double with 21
kills and 10 digs.
Its like Jen said, Im the one on the court all the
time, Byrne said. Im not the one who always gets
the kills, but I was just feeling it in that game.
Byrne has plenty of experience as a scoring threat
though, as it was her M.O. when she first started

Athlete of the Week


playing the sport.
In fourth grade, I was always
the tallest one, Byrne said.
So, I was the only one who
really had strength. I was a
strong hitter, so thats where I
played.
Since then she has developed
into a complete volleyball
player. She plays year-round on
the club circuit and has been coached
by Agresti nonstop since the outset of her freshman season at Notre Dame. Following the 2013
campaign, Byrne played for the Encore club
teams 15-and-under squad coached by Agresti.
But this years Notre Dame team was palpably different from last year, according to
Byrne.
We didnt have the best team chemistry
last year, she said. So, it was a tough year
for all of us. Ever since the beginning of
the [this] season, we all knew we sucked
last year, but we knew were not the same
team we were last year.
It was Oct. 1 when Notre Dame realized it
could contend with the top teams in CCS
when the Tigers won a grueling five-set
battle in the West Catholic Athletic
League opener against Presentation.
But one of the key matches of their title
run was on Oct. 25 in the championship
match of the Tiger Cup Tournament, the
first annual event hosted by Notre Dame
Belmont. In the final match, Notre
Dame captured the Tiger Cup with a
two-set win over Harker. More
importantly, Notre Dame got a
good read on how Harker ran
their offense, Byrne said.

49ers to 3rd
straight win
By Janie McCauley
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SANTA CLARA Jim Harbaugh has the


utmost respect for a guy who dislocates his
finger and pops it back in on his own.
Harbaugh once did so himself during his 15year NFL career as a quarterback.
San Francisco linebacker Aldon Smith
popped his left middle
finger back into place
Sunday.
That was pretty cool.
If I did that Id tell somebody, too, Harbaugh
said Monday. I have
done that before. Thats a
good battle scar to have.
In his second game

back from a nine-game
NFL suspension, Smith looked a lot like his
old dominant self with two sacks against
Robert Griffin III in a 17-13 win against the
Washington Redskins.
The 49ers (7-4) are counting on more of
the same from No. 99 when they host the
defending Super Bowl champion Seattle
Seahawks (7-4) on Thursday night in a
rematch of the NFC title game and with playoff implications at stake for both teams. The
teams will play twice in three weeks.
Last January, Smith sacked and stripped
Russell Wilson on the first play from
scrimmage and recovered the fumble as
San Francisco took an early 3-0 lead

Yet Smith hasnt played much football
since then, serving a lengthy suspension for
violations of the leagues substance-abuse
and personal-conduct policies.
Hes been playing amazing, quarterback
Colin Kaepernick said. He started off the
game great yesterday and hes going to keep
getting better.
That time off could play into Smiths favor,
too.
I dont have as many hits on my body as
the guys who have been playing, Smith
said. Hopefully that comes into play and
matters Thursday.
While he made plenty of impressive plays
sons with the Giants.
The burly switch hitter was beloved in the
Bay Area, where fans sported panda hats in his
honor including a quartet of oversized
heads on a few fans during the franchises latest championship run. His lasting memory
likely will be the moment he leaned back on
bent knees and raised his arms in triumph
after winning another World Series last
month.
He has been with us through some of the
greatest moments in San Francisco Giants
history including all three World Series
championships, the Giants said in a statement. We will never forget his World Series
MVP performance in 2012 and his numerous
contributions to the 2014 championship.
His connection with Giants fans young
and old is truly special, and he will be
greatly missed. We wish him nothing but the
best in Boston.
Sandoval, 28, met with the Red Sox last
week. After winning his third World Series
title in five years with San Francisco, he indicated he wanted to retire with the Giants. He is
coming off a three-year deal that guaranteed

and blew past rookie Morgan Moses, the


Redskins fill-in left tackle, Smith insists
hes still finding his way.
He made his first start Sunday after playing
much of the win at New York the previous
week.
Probably later in the third going into the
fourth quarter I started getting my rhythm
back, and Im still getting it, Smith said.
Two sacks is good but I could have made
some more plays.
Smith couldnt practice with the team during his suspension, but credits his work to
stay in shape and, as he neared the end of the
penalty, returning to football drills. He also
missed five games last year to undergo treatment following a September 2013 DUI arrest.
Just putting myself in a position so when
I come back Im ready, he said of his thinking. Ive still got some room to grow. Well
just keep getting better every week, thats the
plan.
Smith attended meetings and worked out at
him $17.15 million.
Sandoval joins a big-spending Boston
team that finished last in the AL East, one
year after winning the World Series.
Sandoval hit .279 with 16 homers and 73
RBIs in 157 games this season. He also batted .366 in the postseason with seven doubles
and five RBIs, four during the World Series
against Kansas City.
I want to wear that jersey for the rest of my
career, Sandoval said after the Oct. 31 victory parade. Im going to go from what my
heart tells me.
Having the chance to eventually become a
designated hitter could have factored into his
choice.
After the season, Sandoval declined to
answer when asked whether he might accept a
hometown discount. He has faced constant
criticism about his ever-changing waistline
and the fact he performs in the postseason but
has been inconsistent through the first 162
games.

team headquarters but wasnt allowed to practice during his suspension. His teammates
and coaches remained confident Smith would
quickly make contributions, even if defensive coordinator Vic Fangio noted there was a
bit of rust to his game.
From my vantage point and the defensive
coaches felt he played extremely well and
keep honing it, Harbaugh said. He made
plays. I thought he added 10 percent to our
defense creating that pressure, the sacks, the
hurries. If he feels like he can create more, all
the better.
Smith is just one example Harbaugh pointed to following another narrow victory. The
49ers are on a three-game winning streak
after consecutive road wins the two previous

Rod Streater returns to practice for Raiders


By Josh Dubow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ALAMEDA Oakland Raiders receiver


Rod Streater returned to practice Monday for
the first time since breaking his left foot
two months ago.
Streater was placed on the injured reserve
list with a designation to return on Oct. 2
after breaking his foot in New England. He
was eligible to return to practice on Nov. 13
but was finally ready to do so on Monday.
The Raiders (1-10) now have a 21-day
window to decide whether to activate
Streater and place him back on the 53-man
roster. He is eligible to play as soon as this
Sunday against St. Louis.
I think Im close, Streater said. I went
through pretty much the whole practice
without any pain. Cutting, running full
speed, catching it. I feel Im very close.

Streater had nine catches for 84 yards and one


touchdown in two-plus
games before the injury.
Streater has 108 receptions for 1,556 yards and
eight touchdowns since
joining the Raiders as an
undrafted free agent in
Rod Streater 2012.
Interim coach Tony
Sparano said he thought Streater looked
good on the practice field but said it was
important to be patient and not risk a more
significant injury.
Streater said he got a bit winded in his
first practice after spending the past few
weeks working out on the side. He said it
will take some time getting back into
rhythm with quarterback Derek Carr after
missing the past two months.

Thats going to be a big thing, Streater


said. Im probably going to have to put in
some extra time after practice, getting the
timing down, but I felt like I didnt miss a
step really. Little routes were off, but thats
going to come. That will come back real
quick.
Streaters return came the day the Raiders
practiced for the first time since winning
their first game of the season last Thursday
against Kansas City.
Oakland had lost its first 10 games this
season and 16 in a row dating back more
than a year before breaking through with a
24-20 victory over the Chiefs last week.
I saw good focus, Sparano said.
Normally you bring a team in on a Monday
after a couple of days off, you see a lack of
focus, a lack of attention to detail. They
were very focused, very good in meetings
and very good out there on the field.

While the Raiders have already started


preparing for this weeks game against the
Rams, Sparano told his players that it was
still all right to look back at the victory and
savor that feeling.
Its OK to close your eyes and think back
to the locker room a couple days ago and
think about what that feeling is all about
because you want more of it, Sparano said
he told the players. It becomes something
that possesses you a little bit when you win
a football game like that.
NOTES: Running back Latavius Murray,
who ran for two TDs against Kansas City,
did not practice as he has not been cleared to
return from a concussion.
Cornerback TJ Carrie returned to practice
after missing two of the previous three
games with an ankle injury.
Guard Gabe Jackson, who has been sidelined by a knee injury, also did not practice

Soviet hockey coach Tikhonov dies at 84 Cardinal women


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MOSCOW Viktor Tikhonov, the Soviet hockey


coach whose teams won three Olympic gold medals
but fell to the United States in the Miracle on Ice,
died after a long illness. He was 84.
Russias Kontinental Hockey League said early
Monday that Tikhonov died during the night. He had
been receiving treatment at home for an undisclosed illness that had left him unable to walk in recent weeks.
The entire global hockey community has lost a
great coach, Vladislav Tretiak, who played goalie
for Tikhonovs Soviet team and now heads the
Russian Hockey Federation, told Russias R-Sport
news agency.
He devoted his entire life to hockey until the last
second. Even when I was with him in hospital, we
were discussing what needed to be done and how, in
order to raise the Russian national team to the very
highest level.
Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed condolences to Tikhonovs family, the Kremlin said. The
Russian Sports Ministry called his death an irreplaceable loss for hockey fans worldwide.
While a successful player, winning four Soviet
titles as a defenseman, Tikhonov came into his own
during 14 years in charge of the Soviet national team.
Under Tikhonov, the Soviet Big Red Machine
was a powerhouse, although it had to settle for the
silver medal at the 1980 Olympics in Lake Placid
after the stunning defeat to the United States.
Tikhonovs teams went on to win Olympic gold in
1984 and 1988, and he took the post-Soviet Unified

Team to another gold at the 1992


Games. He also led the Soviet
team to eight world championship
titles.
An authoritarian leader with a
taste for intense training sessions, Tikhonov used the Soviet
political system to control his
players and was known to cut star
players from the team for internaViktor
tional tournaments if he feared
Tikhonov
they might defect to the West.
Tikhonovs funeral will take place Thursday with a
memorial service at CSKA Moscow, the club he
coached to 14 national championships, Russian
media reported.

Forsetts 182 yards lead Ravens in Big Easy Buffalo roams

NEW ORLEANS Justin Forsett ripped off

mistake.
Forsett rushed for 182 yards and two touchdowns, and Baltimore beat New Orleans 34-27
on Monday night to hand the Saints their third
consecutive loss.
Will Hill had a 44-yard interception return
for a go-ahead score for Baltimore in the third
quarter. Steve Smith caught four passes for 89
yards, including a 15-yard touchdown catch for
the Ravens (7-4), who improved to 4-0 against
the NFC South and remained within a halfgame of AFC North leader Cincinnati (7-3-1).
Forsetts scoring runs went for 13 yards in
the second quarter and 20 yards late in the
fourth quarter to seal it.
The offensive line did a great job of making
those lanes open for me, Forsett said. I just
tried to seize the moment.
Brees passed for 420 yards and three touchdowns for New Orleans (4-7), which remained

Jets in Detroit
By Noah Trister
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT Scott Chandler capped an emotionally draining week with a celebration for
the folks back home in Buffalo.
After catching a touchdown pass shortly
before halftime, he began
mimicking a shoveling
motion, a nod to Bills
fans who have spent the
last few days digging out
of several feet of snow.
It was a little bit of a
tribute to the people of
Buffalo, Chandler said.
Scott Chandler You want to do something special for our
fans. They did a great job showing up for us
tonight, and for the people back there, were
behind you.
After a week of frightening weather and an
abbreviated practice schedule, Buffalo played
one of its best games of the season in a 38-3
victory over the New York Jets on Monday
night. Kyle Orton threw two touchdown passes, and the Bills also had a key play on specials teams in the runaway win.
Heavy snow in the Buffalo area moved the
game to Detroit, but there were plenty of Bills
fans in attendance at Ford Field. Buffalo (6-5)
couldnt even practice before arriving in
Michigan on Friday, but it was the Jets (2-9)
who looked out of sorts all night.
We probably had the easy part of it, and
back home they had the tough part, Orton
said. Excited to get here and get a big win for
us, and hopefully this will propel us forward.
Orton threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to
Robert Woods in the first quarter, and the second-year receivers one-handed catch set up
another touchdown in the second. Chandler
caught a 19-yard scoring pass from Orton to
make it 14-3 late in the half.
Chandler needed a snowmobile to get out of
his neighborhood before the team traveled to
the Detroit area, and the Bills faced logistical
issues for several days. Tickets to the game
were given out for free.
It was Buffalos second victory of the year
in Detroit the Bills beat the Lions in early
October. The field was repainted for this
game, with Buffalos team logo at midfield
and BILLS in both end zones.
And that familiar Bills version of The Isley
Brothers Shout was played periodically
over the loudspeakers.

Iran nuclear talks stumble, extended until July


By Matthew Lee and George Jahn
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

VIENNA A yearlong effort to seal a


nuclear deal with Iran fizzled Monday, leaving the U.S. and its allies little choice but to
declare a seven-month extension in hopes
that a new deadline will be enough to
achieve what a decade of negotiations have
failed to do limit Tehrans ability to make
a nuclear weapon.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and
other Western foreign ministers converging
on Vienna in a last-ditch diplomatic push
talked up the add-on time as the best way
forward. We would be fools to walk away,
Kerry declared.
But a week of tough maneuvering appeared
to have achieved little more than agreement
to keep on talking. Negotiators will now
strive to nail down by March 1 what Iran and
the six world powers it is negotiating with
must do, and by when. A final agreement is
meant to follow four months later.

Although the proposed grant is a unique
opportunity, theres a hitch. If the school
fails to raise its portion between Jan. 1 and
Dec. 31, 2015, then its not eligible for any
grant funding, Greig and Rossi said.
Its a challenge grant, so he puts up $6
million and challenges us to raise a matching $6 million. So we only get the money if
we can match it, Rossi said.
Greig said although theres no guarantee
the school will receive any help, she agreed
with the stipulation.
Its an all-or-nothing deal, Greig said.
Because he wants to make sure we can do
the project. If we cant do the project, why
pour money down it?
The grant will be issued through Taube
Philanthropies, a foundation that makes
investments primarily in the Bay Area and
Poland by offering scholarships toward heritage preservation, education, arts and culture, according to NDNU.
Taube spent more than a decade on the
schools Board of Trustees and said in an
email he was troubled by the thought of the
community losing the historic asset.
Ralston Hall is in danger of having to be
demolished because of earthquake risks, and
I just cannot envision that loss to NDNU,

broadly, Taube said. I am honored to help
NDNU take the first step in restoring this

Republican whose work with Democratic
Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey on oil
sanctions helped cripple Irans economy
and drive it to the negotiating table.
Kirk pledged to come forward with a new
bipartisan sanctions package after the
Republican takeover of the Senate.
Menendez suggested similar action, saying
hed work to ensure that Iran comprehends
that we will not ever permit it to become a
threshold nuclear state.
The U.S. administration strongly opposes additional sanctions because it fears it
will push Tehran away from the table.
Kerry called for patience, saying he hoped
congressional skeptics would come to see
the wisdom of giving talks an extra few
months to be able to proceed without sending messages that might be misinterpreted.
In Tehran, hard-liners fearful that their
country will give away more than it gets
under any final deal may increase pressure
on Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei
to break off talks. Still, the latest extension
appears to have the approval of Khamenei,
the ultimate arbiter in his country.
Positive comments by Iranian President
Hassan Rouhani reflected Khameneis backing.
Many gaps have been eliminated,
Rouhani said in a statement, though he
added the sides were still some distance
from a deal.

Furthermore, Taube has volunteered to
help the university raise the remaining
funds needed to fully restore Ralston Hall to
the community, Greig said. Although the
school has been in touch with several
donors, no one had really wanted to take the
lead on the schools fundraising efforts,
Greig said.
Taube has agreed to lead the public campaign to raise the other $8 million (for the
retrofit and remodel). So hes really helping
us with the whole project which is really
exciting because he has entree into the community that we may not, Greig said.
Weve been trying to find the right person

Greig and Rossi said its too early to set a
schedule for when the university may begin
fundraising events or how soon it could
start construction if awarded the grant.
However, with newfound help, the school is
excited to begin the process, Greig and
Rossi said.
Closing the elegant Ralston Hall was
emotional and, although it was disappointing for staff whose offices were located
there, its disheartening that some students
wont experience the building during their
time at NDNU, Greig said.
Its just been central to the campus milieu
and its really going to generate energy to
have it back in use, Greig said. We want to
make sure that every student thats on the

Ebola to prepare

By Lauran Neergaard
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The next Ebola or the next SARS.


Maybe even the next HIV. Even before the Ebola epidemic
in West Africa is brought under control, public health officials are girding for the next health disaster.
Its really urgent that we address the weak links and blind
spots around the world, Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told the
Associated Press. Ebola is a powerful reminder that a
health threat anywhere can affect us.
Ebola sprang from one of those blind spots, in an area
that lacks the health systems needed to detect an outbreak

high-risk countries and guard against the next contagion.
Theres little doubt there will be a next time. Just in recent
years, the world has seen bird flu sicken people in Southeast
Asia, the respiratory killer SARS spread from China, the
2009 flu pandemic, growing threats from antibiotic-resistant germs, and SARS new cousin in the Middle East named
MERS.
And what if the next bug spills across borders even more
easily than Ebola?
If bird flu ever mutates to spread between people, we better look out. It will make Ebola look like a picnic, Sen.
Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, warned a recent Senate Appropriations
Committee as he questioned whether $600 million was
enough to do the job.
After all, less than 20 percent of countries have reported
meeting World Health Organization requirements showing
they are adequately prepared to respond to emerging infectious threats.
The Obama administration kicked off the global health
security project in February at a White House meeting with
representatives of more than two dozen countries
unaware that Ebola already was quietly brewing in Guinea.
Additional countries signed on in later meetings in Finland
and Indonesia, and again at the White House in September,
where President Barack Obama declared the world must

For its part in the international collaboration, the U.S.
plans to assist at least 30 countries over the next five years
to bolster local disease prevention and monitoring,
improve laboratory diagnosis of pathogens and strengthen
emergency response to outbreaks.
Consider Uganda, where in 2010 a lack of a good laboratory system was one reason it took a shockingly long 40
days to determine a mysterious outbreak was yellow fever,
said CDC scientist Jeff Borchert.

Liberia free of Ebola by HEALTH


Christmas, says president
Continued from page 17

By Jonathan Paye-Layleh
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MONROVIA, Liberia Liberias president on Monday urged her countrymen to


double their efforts to reach the governments goal of having zero new Ebola cases
by Dec. 25, a target some experts have
described as highly ambitious.
Weve set a pretty tough target. But when
you set a target it means that you stay
focused on that target and on that goal and
then you double your efforts, Sirleaf said
during a ceremony marking the docking of a
Dutch aid ship in the capital, Monrovia.
When youre running a race, as you get
closer and closer to the nish line you pick
up the speed because you want to make sure
that that last mile you will give it your best
bet, Sirleaf added.
Liberia has recorded nearly 3,000 conrmed, probable and suspected Ebola deaths
since the outbreak began far more than
any other country, according to the latest
World Health Organization gures.

The number of new cases in Liberia has


declined recently, however, prompting the
U.S. to scale back the size and number of
treatment facilities it is building.
Still, ofcials have warned against complacency. Anthony Banbury, who heads the
U.N. ght against Ebola in West Africa, said
Friday that while achieving a decline in
cases is difcult, reaching the point of zero
cases in the region will be much, much
harder.
The arrival of the Dutch naval vessel, the
Karel Doorman, in Monrovia marked the
end of its tour of the three countries hardest
hit by the Ebola epidemic.
The ship visited the capitals of Sierra
Leone and Guinea in the past two weeks,
said Julius Kanubah from the European
Unions political section in Liberia.
Nine European countries and the United
Nations Childrens Fund donated 160 vehicles, 80 containers and 1,200 tons of supplies for humanitarian agencies.
Sirleaf thanked the E.U. for also providing aid to Guinea and Sierra Leone.

Last year, CDC began a pilot project to


improve Ugandas disease detection by piggybacking on a small program that tested
babies born to HIV-positive mothers. Now,
in a larger swath of the country, motorcycles race samples from sick patients to
provincial capitals where theyre shipped
overnight to a central lab to test for a variety of diseases. The health ministry also set
up an emergency operations center to oversee potential outbreaks.
In March, Ugandas new system proved
itself, Borchert said, as the country fought
an outbreak of nearly 200 cases of meningitis, using that network for testing of
patients in remote areas. And last month, in
an another example of its overall preparedness, Ugandan officials rapidly tracked
down contacts of a health worker who died
of Marburg virus, an Ebola relative, a case
that fortunately didnt spread.
CDC has long trained public health workers in various countries to be disease detectives, but the international collaboration is
supposed to be more comprehensive. Even
before receiving any new funding, CDC
started some additional small projects in
countries such as India, Thailand, Jordan,

Vietnam and Georgia, to expand outbreakfighting capabilities.


Then came Ebola. While the outbreak
stalled work on broader global health security, it also increased awareness of the ripple effect that one unprepared country can
have.
Lawmakers want to know if the U.S. will
leave Ebola-ravaged Liberia, Sierra Leone
and Guinea with health systems more capable of responding to future outbreaks.
Liberia is a country where they tell me
that their electricity output is such that it
would have trouble powering the Jumbotron
at Dallas stadium, said Sen. John
Boozman, R-Ark. Is this going to be
something that we put in and its going to
be an ongoing cost for us, you know, forever?
CDC will expand its Ebola-specific work,
such as training rapid response teams to
investigate cases, so theyre better able to
detect and respond to not only Ebola but
other pathogens, said Dr. Jordan Tappero,
CDCs director of global health protection.
Its our intention to be there for the longterm to really build that public health capacity.
Learning to tackle one disease can pay off
against another: Nearby Nigeria beat back
Ebola thanks in part to its polio-fighting
program that included labs and CDC-trained
disease detectives who quickly switched
gears to the new threat.

Merry marijuana: Pot sellers


looking for holiday shoppers
By Kristen Wyatt
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DENVER Thats not mistletoe.


From new marijuana strains for
the holidays to gift sets and potand-pumpkin pies, the burgeoning marijuana industry in
Colorado is scrambling to get a
piece of the holiday shopping dollar. Dispensaries in many states
have been offering holiday specials for medical customers for
years - but this first season of
open-to-all-adults marijuana sales
in some states means pot shops
are using more of the tricks used
by traditional retailers to attract
holiday shoppers.
Heres a look at how the new
recreational marijuana industry is
trying to attract holiday shoppers:

OLD-FASHIONED
DOORBUSTERS
Traditional retailers sell some
items below cost to drive traffic
and attract sales. Recreational
marijuana retailers are doing the
same.
The Grass Station in Denver is
selling an ounce of marijuana for
$50 - about a fifth of the cost of
the next-cheapest strain at the
Colorado dispensary - to the first
16 customers in line Friday,
Saturday and Sunday. That works

out to less than $1 a joint for the


ambitious early-rising pot shopper. Owner Ryan Fox says his
Black Friday pot is decent quality,
and says hes selling below cost
to attract attention and pick up
some new customers. As Colorado
dispensaries approach a year of
being able to sell weed to all
adults over 21, not just card-carrying medical patients, Fox says
retailers have to do more than just
sell pot to get public attention.
Pot shops are using old and new
media to tout the sales. One dispensary is taking out a full-page
Happy Danksgiving ad in The
Denver Post and is inviting shoppers to text a code for extra savings.

VISIONS OF SUGAR PLUMS


Sweets and marijuana seem to go
together like hot chocolate and
marshmallows. Many dispensaries this time of year resemble a

Health brief

JOHANNESBURG A plague outbreak has killed 40 people on the


island nation of Madagascar, with 119
people diagnosed with the bacterial
disease since August.
Two people have been diagnosed and
one has died in the capital,
Antananarivo. The World Health
Organization fears the plague outbreak

may
spread
rapidly
through
Madagascars largest and densely populated city, worsened by the countrys
poor health care system.
WHO said a national task force has
been set up to manage the outbreak,
with the cost of the project reaching
$200,000. The international health
organization said it is working with
the Red Cross and Madagascan health

Apothecary timed the release of
some top-shelf strains of potent
pot for the holiday season.
Spokeswoman Ann Dickerson
says theyre sort of like the best
bourbon or Scotch that will be
competing on quality, rather than
price.

GIFT WRAPPING
What holiday shopper doesnt
appreciate free gift wrapping? Or a

gift set ready to pop under the


tree? The Growing Kitchen is making $49.99 gift sets for both the
medical and recreational pot user.
The sets include the edible-pot

a pot-infused confection new for
the holiday shopping season,
along with marijuana-infused
salves for muscles sore from the
ski slopes. Other dispensaries are
offering free gift totes and stockings with purchases.

The plague is a disease carried by
rodents and spread by fleas. Humans
are most often infected when they are
bitten by fleas, causing swelling of
the lymph nodes and sometimes pneumonia.
Combatting
the
disease
in
Madagascar has been made more difficult by a high level of resistance to an
insecticide used to control fleas,
according to WHO.

RELAY
Continued from page 1
lead, said despite the setback
Capuchino remains the best location
for the community fundraising walk
created by the American Cancer
Society.
It really disappointed us because
Relay is supposed to symbolize 24
hours in life of a cancer patient, he
said. Capuchino has been really
cooperative. I went to the district
and pleaded with them, but they put it
off by saying its a done deal. I looked
for some reasoning, but there is
none.
The district is making this change
for safety reasons, said Sheri CostaBatis, communications manager for
the district.
The San Mateo Union High School
District really appreciates the value of
Relay for Life and the positive impact
it has on the community, she said in
an email. For safety reasons, the district will not be able to accommodate
the full time requested, but supports
and welcomes Relay for Life on the
Capuchino campus until midnight.
The district cant take the liability
risk for minors spending the night on
campus, said board President Linda
Lees Dwyer. The event is not a schoolsponsored program and doesnt have
school-sponsored chaperons. The risk
is harm to students and inappropriate
behaviors without adequate supervision, she said.
I would prefer we have no overnight
programs, she said. We have issues

GUILTY
Continued from page 1
commit this type of crime and proves
that these three people did not lose
their lives in vain, District Attorney
Steve Wagstaffe said.
Demacedo, who is in custody without
bail, will be sentenced Jan. 23 and
faces up to life in prison although the
determinant number is in question
25 years or 45 years depending on who
one asks.
Defense attorney Geoff Carr said his
client was upset with the news.
He was distraught. Hes been distraught from the beginning because he
took responsibility right away, said
Carr, who had pushed jurors to convict
on vehicular manslaughter.
The prosecution elevated the charges
to murder after his arrest, citing the
number of victims and his prior history which included the DUI education
class about the dangers of his actions.
During closing arguments last
Wednesday, prosecutor Jeff Finigan

of people exposing themselves, a person trying to get young women to


engage with them. ... We need to keep
students safe; its impossible to lock
these campuses to keep strangers from
getting in. Its nothing against these
kids; theyre trying to do a good thing
and the motivation is absolutely wonderful, but the risk of harm to students
overnight on a public campus is not
something I would want to take on.
Still, the 24 hours symbolize the
around-the-clock challenges of a cancer patient, a disease that never sleeps,
Ibarra told the district at a recent
school board meeting. Relay for Life
is traditionally an overnight community fundraiser. Teams of people take
turns walking around a track, while
camped out. Theres usually food,
games and activities for entertainment
and camaraderie, he said.
Liability was one of the reasons
given for the midnight cutoff, Ibarra
said.
The silver lining is we dont anticipate any reduction in donations, he
said. In the past couple of years,
weve had less than 100 people stay
overnight. Well probably have a
stronger message and more people participating in the closing ceremonies.
Prior to being hosted at Capuchino,
the San Bruno event first began at
Skyline College in 2010, but was
moved since the campus can get chilly,
Ibarra said. The Relay committee also
considered San Bruno City Park, but
decided not to go with that location
because its not as good of a facility as
Capuchino and requires a city approval
process, he said.
Capuchino is perfect for our event,
he said. Its not as close to residents,

theres good weather, secluded, the fact


we have an all weather track, restroom
facilities, a nice setup for a Relay,
plenty of parking and the staff we work
with there accommodates us. We had a
committee meeting and it was unanimous we stay at Capuchino because of
the advantages.
This is actually the first event season that volunteer coordinators for
Relay for Life in California have the
option of doing events other than the
typical 24-hour heritage event, said
Katie Wilcox, community engagement
specialist for the American Cancer
Society. Options for six-hour, 12-hour
and 18- to 24-hour events have been
available to other states across the
country, she said.
We did it just to fit peoples needs a
little more, she said. The venues,
dates, types of fundraising at the
events are all up to the volunteers. All
of the volunteers have spoken and
they want to remain at Capuchino.
They went $20,000 over the goal last
year, so clearly theyre moving in a
very positive direction.
The 12-hour event might be a blessing after all, Ibarra said.
Were going forward with a positive
attitude and stronger message on how
to help the cancer victims, he said.
The event takes place April 25,
2015, at 1501 Magnolia Ave. in San
Bruno and there will be a kickoff celebration at the end of January 2015.
So far, seven teams and nine participants have raised $1,060.

told jurors the March 9, 2013, crash


was no tragic accident as the defense
contended but instead the result of
Demacedos conscious decision to
drink, drive and speed while on a suspended license and probation.
The crash killed Josefa Osorio
Acevedo, 50, and her sons Amado
Osorio Acevedo, 23, and Josue Osorio,
14. The family was immediately killed
at the scene. Amado Acevedos girlfriend Sarah Sangraw survived.
During the trial, jurors visited the
Eastmoor Avenue scene and saw the
vehicles involved firsthand. They also
viewed video surveillance footage
taken by a camera across the street that
captured Demacedos BMW slamming
into the familys Toyota Tercel. Less
than mile before, Demacedo had
bumped into a Honda Civic but fled the
collision, according to Finigan,
because he knew he was drinking and
legally prohibited from driving. He
allegedly sped up to 67 mph in the 25
mph zone as the Tercel pulled away
from the cub to turn around.
The Tercel was pushed about 150 feet
and Josefa Acevedo was ejected.
Sangraw had to be cut from the car and

survived but spent weeks unconscious,


fractured her pelvis and suffered multiple internal injuries that leave her
unable to run and jump.
A blood draw from the 8 p.m. crash
placed his blood level at .22 at the
time of the collision by working backward from the level at the time it was
tested.
Prior to the crash, Demacedo had
spent the afternoon drinking with
friends although just how much was a
point of contention in trial. Whether
Demacedo tried to avoid the crash was
also in play. A defense reconstruction
expert also testified that Demacedo
may have been braking or swerving in
the 1.8 seconds before impact. A prosecution expert said his simulation was
improperly conducted.
In recent years, the number of vehicular deaths resulting in murder convictions has risen locally. From 1980
when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled they
could be charged as such until 2007,
San Mateo County saw two seconddegree murder convictions, Wagstaffe
said.
In the last 18 months, the county has
had five.
