Developer targets farmland


Proposed project for 34 homes, some concerned its not a fit for South San Francisco neighborhood
By Angela Swartz
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The last bit of farmland in South


San Francisco could be developed
into 31 townhouses and four single-family homes, including some
affordable to low- and moderateincome residents, but some are
concerned the development will
disrupt the existing neighborhood.
Just east of the South San

Francisco
BART station,
the project is in
the
Transit

and is com- Rich Garbarino
prised of three
separate lots, totaling approximately 1.7 acres in the Sunshine

Gardens neighborhood, according


to a staff report. The Planning
Commission voted 6-1 Thursday
night adopting a resolution to
make findings and recommend the
City Council approve the project.
Officials seem mostly excited
about the development, including
Mayor Richard Garbarino.
Its an opportune time and
place for a development, he said.
It fits into the transit-oriented
plan; its near shopping and trans-

portation. I think its a perfect fit


for that area.
In the past 15 years, the city has
developed a vision for the South
San Francisco BART area to transform into a transit-supportive
neighborhood between the singlefamily neighborhood to the south
and east and the BART station,
according to a staff report.
The only commissioner to vote
against the proposal was Chair
Carlos Martin, who said its

important to add housing so people can live closer to where they


work and that he likes the plan,
but that it needs more open space.
Currently, the plan includes a
small playground adjacent to the
area where Edgewood Avenue
would be extended.
Our goal here is not just to add
housing, but to build a community
and make it a beautiful place to

San Bruno preps for development


Height limitation rise should make way for new businesses, housing
By Angela Swartz
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Although officials in San Bruno


are looking forward to bringing in
new development with a just-passed
measure to raise height limits near
San Brunos downtown, dont
expect to see restaurants, apartments and businesses pop up right
away.
Measure N, passed by voters in
November,
modified
1977s
Ordinance 1284, which limits
building heights, potentially rais-

ing them from the current maximum


of 50 feet to 90 feet near the San
Bruno Caltrain station, and lesser
amounts in surrounding areas. City
Manager Connie Jackson said
while Measure N sets the stage for
new development, the city hasnt
received new applications and didnt expect to generate immediate
proposals.
We do expect with the new development standards in space, there is
now an opportunity to assemble
parcels and to build to more modern
heights and other development

specifications, she said.


The ordinance was the result of a
voter initiative, which was intended to preserve the existing character of San Bruno by requiring voter
approval for high-rise developments, increased density in existing neighborhoods and projects
encroaching upon scenic corridors
and open spaces. It prohibited
buildings or other structures to
exceed 50 feet or three stories in

Redwood City and the YMCA of


Silicon Valley are moving a step
closer to building a joint recreation complex to replace the antiquated Veterans Memorial Center
at Red Morton Park and potentially draw younger seniors.
The city and YMCA were individually pursuing new projects the
former to replace the 1956-era veterans center and the latter to
expand its Hudson Street building
when they opted to try working
together. A partnership launched
in 2011 and now, three years later,
the city is ready to sign a letter of
intent, or LOI. The City Council
on Monday night will likely give
City Manager Bob Bell authority
to execute the non-binding letter

which establishes a framework for


hammering out specific terms and
conditions in an agreement.
Parks and Recreation Director
Chris Beth said hes excited to
take this next step. His enthusiasm is shared by Kathy Riggins,
president and CEO of YMCA of
Silicon Valley, which called the
city a marvelous partner.
The two share a common vision
for expanding health, wellness
and recreational opportunities in
the community and believe this
type of project will leverage each
organizations strengths and experience. By working together, we
can ensure that our facilities complement one another and that
theres strong synergy between

the game.
KRQE-TV reports that Evangeline
Shelland of Alamogordo has asked the
New Mexico Attorney Generals Office
for help since she was banned two years
ago from playing her favorite game at

Shelland denies the accusation. The
club declined to comment.
The Attorney Generals Office says
it didnt have jurisdiction over the
club and couldnt force it to allow
Shelland to play.

Man scares off thieves


with gun on walker
GASTONIA, N.C. A 68-year-old
Gastonia man says he scared off two men

And then he taped a note to his door saying if they try to break in his house
again, he will be waiting on them.
Joseph Sapienza told The Gaston

Historic ships at Hyde Street Pier and Pier 45

an Francisco is jam-packed with history. A lot of it had to do with the


maritime events that started here in
the mid-1850s.
The Yerba Buena Cove became too busy
and crowded when gold was discovered in
the foothills. Thousands of boats were left
along the shores and in the Bay as their
crews jumped ship and left to try their luck
at panning gold that was there for the picking. After the gold fever subsided, the port
area became the lifeblood to get supplies
that the Bay Area lacked. Ships of all kinds
were needed to navigate the water in the Bay
and move people as well cargo.
Many historic ships have been preserved
at Hyde Street Pier and Pier 45. The fleet of
ships at Hyde Street Pier now include: An
1886-built square rigged sailing ship, the
Balclutha; an 1895 built lumber schooner,
the C. A. Thayer; an 1890-built steam ferryboat; an 1891-built scow schooner, the
Alma; a 1907-built steam tugboat, Hercules;
and a 1914-built paddlewheel tug, the
Eppleton Hall.
At the Hyde Street Pier is berthed the
Eppleton Hall. The Eppleton Hall was built
in England in 1914 as a ship to tow colliers
(coal ship) from sea to the wharf and back.
This was cheaper than the ships docking
and paying fees for this service. This is one
of the last surface condensing side-lever
engines of the grasshopper type. Her two
functioning engines helped her with docking ships. After many frustrating attempts
to obtain her after she was taking out of
service, she was donated to the National

In 1954, Pacific Queen was acquired by the

many names starting off as the Star of
Alaska, Pacific Queen or sailing ship
Balclutha. After being built in Scotland in
1886 and being a steel-hulled full rigged
ship being the only square-rigged ship left
in the Bay Area, the museum was happy to
get this ship after it led a full life on the
seas. She rounded the Cape Horn 17 times in
13 years carrying wine, case oil and coal
from Europe and the East Coast of the United
States. She carried nitrate from Chile, wool
from Australia and New Zealand, Burma rice,
San Francisco grain and lumber from the
Pacific Northwest.
In 1902, the Alaska Packers Association
chartered her and later bought her after running aground on an island. The Balclutha

Gable and Charles Laughton. In 1954, she

Museum which renamed her Balclutha. She
is a great asset to the Maritime Museum at
the Hyde Street Pier.
The tugboat Hercules was built in 1907 in
Camden, New Jersey and then was sailed to
San Francisco. She was used extensively for
towing sailing ships when the wind stopped
blowing. Her engine made it possible to
move in all types of weather and she made
many trips to Hawaii and the Northwest timber area to haul log-rafts to San Francisco.
In 1924, she was acquired by the Western
Pacific Railroad and used for shuttling railroad cars across the Bay. In 1975, the
California State Park Foundation acquired
the Hercules and the National Park Service
took over her restoration in 1975.
In 1895, a Danish shipbuilder built a
three-masted lumber schooner (the C.A.
Thayer) near Humboldt Bay by Eureka. One
half of the lumber was carried below deck
and the remaining lumber stacked above
deck. The crew of eight or nine men loaded
the schooner and unloaded it when it reached
port. After a brutal wind damaged it in 1912,
its days as a lumber carrier were ended.
Steam-driven boats were more economical
and reliable and the wind-driven boats were
being phased out. Each April, starting in
1912, life was ejected into the Thayer when
she became used in the fishing industry in
Alaska. She was loaded up with 28-foot gillnet boats, bundles of barrel staves, and tons

Obama, GOP-led Congress Berkeley protesters


prepare for veto showdowns smash windows; 4 hurt
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

By Charles Babington
and Jim Kuhnhenn
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Veto brinkmanship


between congressional Republicans and
President Barack Obama was virtually
absent in his first six years in office, but its
about to unleash itself on Washington.
Until now, controversial Republicanbacked legislation rarely reached the presidents desk because Senate Democrats
blocked it. Starting in January, however,
Republicans will control both the House
and Senate, and Obama may have to decide
more often whether to sign or veto GOPcrafted bills.
Obama gave lawmakers an early taste of
veto politics recently when he forced congressional leaders to drop a proposed package
of tax breaks that were popular with many
Republican constituents. Some Democrats did
support the plan, but liberals and the White
House said it tilted too heavily toward corporations, not lower-income workers.
The White House also has promised to
veto any bills restricting the presidents
major changes to immigration policies, setting up likely showdowns early next year.
Obamas threats present the type of bind

Man dressed as woman


robs bank, carjacks minivan
Police are searching for a man who robbed
a bank in Belmont while dressed in
womens clothing then carjacked a minivan
while fleeing
Friday afternoon.
The suspect
was caught on
camera while
robbing the
P r o v i de n t
Credit Union
on the 400
block of El
Camino Real
shortly before
3:10
p. m. ,
according to
Police.
After fleeing on foot, the suspect carjacked a womans minivan on the 1700
block of Notre Dame Avenue. The victim
was not injured, but her vehicle, a Honda
Odyssey license number 5SAH869, and the

that Republicans may face repeatedly in the


next two years. They can agree to many or all
of the changes he demands in legislation, or
they can let him use his veto and hope
Americans will blame him more than them.
Its a gamble, especially with critical
spending bills Congress soon must address.
Some Republicans want to amend these
must-pass bills to thwart Obamas bid to
protect millions of immigrants, now in the
country illegally, from deportation.
Assuming Obama keeps his veto promise,
Republican lawmakers would have to decide
whether to drop their demands or let parts of
the federal government close for lack of
money. GOP leaders say there will be no
shutdowns, but they have yet to explain
how they can force Obama to back off on
immigration.
The 2013 partial government shutdown
occurred under similar partisan circumstances. Polls show the public blamed congressional Republicans more than the
Democratic president.
Its unclear how often Obama will face a
veto decision. Even in the minority,
Democratic senators can use the filibuster,
the name for unlimited debate, to block
many measures that break strictly along
party lines.

Local briefs
suspect are outstanding, according to
police.
The suspect was last scene wearing a yellow vest and black pants. Womens clothing, including the sweater and wig the suspect wore during the robbery, as well as a
black air soft replica handgun were found on
the 1600 block of Notre Dame Avenue,
according to police.
The suspect is described as a black man
between the ages of 17 and 20, approximately 6 feet tall, with a slender build and a
tattoo on his left forearm, according to
police.
Belmont police and the FBI are investigating the case. Anyone with information
should call police at (650) 595-7400, the
Belmont anonymous tip line at (650) 5983000 or the FBIs San Francisco office at
(415) 553-7400.

divide.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich said on ABCs
This Week that a significant percentage
of the country believes the systems not
working for them and can be working
against them.
They need to be listened to and they need

best when were united.
The unrest in Berkeley follows violent
disruptions of demonstrations in San
Francisco and Oakland in recent days. Five
San Francisco police officers sought medical treatment after sustaining injuries during a protest in downtown San Francisco on
Black Friday.
On Saturday night, protesters broke away
from a peaceful demonstration and began
throwing rocks, bottles and pipes at officers.

Police seeking two


suspects in armed robbery
Police are seeking two suspects who
robbed a woman at gunpoint in San Bruno
early Friday morning, police said.
Officers responded to a report of an armed
robbery at 1:10 a.m. in the 200 block of
Lake Drive, police said.
Police said two men approached a woman
after she parked her car. One of the men
pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the
woman, demanding her personal property,
police said.
Police described the first suspect as about
6 feet tall, roughly 200 pounds, wearing a
dark hooded sweatshirt with the hood up and
dark pants and armed with a handgun.
Police described the second suspect as
about 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 180
pounds, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt
with the hood up and dark pants.
Officers searched the area for the suspects
but did not locate them, police said.

Survivors gather to remember Pearl Harbor attack

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii


Veterans who survived the Pearl
Harbor attack that launched the
United States into World War II
attended Sundays 73rd anniversary ceremony with the help of
canes, wheelchairs and motorized
scooters.
Wearing purple orchid lei, about
100 Pearl Harbor and World War II
survivors attended the ceremony
overlooking a memorial that sits
atop sunken battleship USS
Arizona. Many of them arrived
well before the sun came up.
This years anniversary of the
Japanese attack is the 10th consecutive one that USS Utah survivor Gilbert Meyer attended. But
its getting harder for Meyer, 91,
to travel to Hawaii from San
Antonio.
Asked if he planned to attend
next years anniversary, he
responded with a chuckle, Thats

alive.
Harold Johnson, 90, is making
it a goal to attend the 75th

anniversary, even though traveling


from
Oak
Harbor,
Washington, isnt always easy.
Ive got a little scooter thats a

real life saver, the USS Oklahoma


survivor said.
Johnson had been aboard the
Oklahoma for just six months on
Dec. 7, 1941, looking forward to a
day off and a date with a little
Hawaiian girl. He was shining
his shoes when the first alarm
went off, he recalled.
Three months later I ran into
her in town in Honolulu, he said
of his date. She was mad at me
because I stood her up.
For many of the roughly 2,000
survivors who remain, there are
also more painful memories.
Keynote speaker Gen. Lori
Robinson, commander of Pacific
Air Forces, told the crowd of several thousand about four of the
nine remaining survivors of the
USS Arizona. Don Stratton, 92, of
Colorado Springs, Colorado, and
Lauren Bruner, 94, of La Mirada,
California, were two of six men
who escaped the inferno that
engulfed the forward half of the
ship by negotiating a line, hand

over hand, about 45 feet in the air,


despite burns to more than 60 percent of their bodies. John
Anderson, 97, of Roswell, New
Mexico, was ordered off the ship,
but he didnt want to leave behind
his twin brother, Delbert. Even
though he was forced into a small
boat that took him to Ford Island,
he commandeered an empty boat
and returned to the Arizona to rescue three shipmates. But he never
found his brother.
When the Arizona sank, she
took with her 1,177 sailors and
Marines, Robinson told the
crowd, which included Arizona
Gov. Jan Brewer and Hawaii Gov.
David Ige.
Robinson also highlighted the
sacrifices of the Honolulu Fire
Department, which was dispatched
to respond after receiving the
alarm at 8:05 a. m. Without
knowing it, the Honolulu Fire
Department was going to war,
she said. Three firefighters would
never return, and six others would
be seriously injured.

U.S. sends six prisoners from Guantanamo to Uruguay


By Ben Fox
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MIAMI Six prisoners held for


12 years at Guantanamo Bay have
been sent to Uruguay to be resettled as refugees, the U.S. government announced Sunday a deal
that had been delayed for months
by security concerns at the
Pentagon and political considerations in the South American country.
The six men four Syrians, a
Tunisian and a Palestinian are
the first prisoners transferred to
South America from the U.S. base
in Cuba, part of a flurry of recent
releases amid a renewed push by
President Barack Obama to close
the prison.
All were detained as suspected

militants with ties to al-Qaeda in


2002 but were never charged. They
had been cleared for release since
2009 but could not be sent home
and the U. S. struggled to find
countries willing to take them.
Uruguayan
President
Jose
Mujica agreed to accept the men as
a humanitarian gesture and said
they would be given help getting
established in a country with a
small Muslim population.
We are very grateful to Uruguay
for this important humanitarian
action, and to President Mujica for
his strong leadership in providing
a home for individuals who cannot
return to their own countries,
U. S. State Department envoy
Clifford Sloan said.
Among those transferred was
Abu Wael Dhiab, a 43-year-old

Syrian on a long-term hunger


strike protesting his confinement
who was at the center of a legal
battle in U.S. courts over the militarys use of force-feeding.

Cori Crider, a lawyer for Dhiab


from the human rights group
Reprieve, praised Mujica, a former
political prisoner himself, for
accepting the men.

The Pentagon identified the


other Syrians sent to Uruguay on
Saturday as Ali Husain Shaaban,
32; Ahmed Adnan Ajuri, 37; and
Abdelahdi Faraj, 39. Also released
were
Palestinian
prisoner
Mohammed
Abdullah
Taha
Mattan, 35, and 49-year-old Adel
bin Muhammad El Ouerghi of
Tunisia.

Despite years of suffering, Mr.


Dhiab is focused on building a
positive future for himself in
Uruguay, said Crider, who was
heading to Montevideo to meet
with him. He looks forward to
being reunited with his family and
beginning his life again.

Uruguayan officials declined


comment Sunday on the transfers.
Adriana Ramos, a receptionist at a
military hospital in Montevideo,
the capital, said the six men were
being examined there but declined
to provide any details.

The U.S. has now transferred 19


prisoners out of Guantanamo this
year, all but one of them within
the last 30 days. Saturdays move
brings the total number of prisoners still at Guantanamo to 136
the lowest number since shortly
after the prison opened in January
2002. Officials say several more

releases are expected by the end of


the year.
Obama administration officials
had been frustrated that the transfer took so long, blaming outgoing Defense Secretary Chuck
Hagel for not approving the move
sooner. They said after Mujica had
agreed to take the men in January,
the deal sat for months on Hagels
desk, awaiting his signature as
required by law. The Pentagon didnt send the notification of the
transfer to Congress until July.
By then, the transfer had
become an issue in Uruguays
political election and officials
there decided to postpone it until
after the vote. Tabare Vazquez, a
member of Mujicas ruling coalition and a former president, won a
runoff election on Nov. 30.

Statistics lacking in debate HISTORY


over police behavior, deaths
Continued from page 3

By Allen G. Breed
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Ferguson, Missouri. Cleveland, Ohio.


Staten Island, New York. Eutawville, South
Carolina.
In each place, individuals all unarmed
except for a child carrying a pellet gun
died at the hands of police officers. All of
the dead were black. The officers involved,
white.
To many Americans, it feels like a national tidal wave. And yet, no firm statistics can
say whether this spate of officer-involved
deaths is a growing trend or simply a series
of coincidences generating a deafening buzz
in news reports and social media.
We have a huge scandal in that we dont
have an accurate count of the number of people who die in police custody, says Samuel
Walker, emeritus professor of criminal justice at the University of Nebraska at Omaha
and a leading scholar on policing and civil
liberties. Thats outrageous.
There are some raw numbers, but theyre
of limited value.
The FBIs Uniform Crime Reports, for
instance, track justifiable police homicides
there were 1,688 between 2010 and 2013
but the statistics rely on voluntary
reporting by local law enforcement agencies and are incomplete. Circumstances of
the deaths, and other information such as
age and race, also arent required.
The Wall Street Journal, detailing its own
examination of officer-involved deaths at
105 of the nations 110 largest police
departments, reported last week that federal
data failed to include or mislabeled hundreds
of fatal police encounters.
Put simply: Its hard to know for certain
what is happening on the ground.
We want a comprehensive picture ... so
people can be aware of what really goes on,

and not the claptrap put out by people with


agendas, says David Klinger, a professor
of criminology at the University of
Missouri-St. Louis who has studied use of
deadly force and hopes to get funding for a
pilot project that could provide better
national statistics.
To those who have taken to the streets to
protest in recent weeks, that lack of context
is almost beside the point.
These are communities that have been
living for generations under the yoke of
what has felt like an occupying force, says
Phillip Atiba Goff, co-founder of UCLAs
Center for Policing Equity. And regardless
of what any of the stats are ever going to
say, if we dont address the reality of that
experience, then were shooting ourselves
in the foot in our attempts to make good on
our promise of democratic principles.
The high-profile cases have erupted one
after the other.
On July 17, 43-year-old Eric Garner died
after officers tried to arrest him on suspicion of selling untaxed cigarettes on a New
York City street. Cellphone video captured
the scene as one officer wrapped his arm
around Garners neck, and the black man
repeatedly pleaded, I cant breathe.
Tensions escalated on Aug. 9, when
Officer Darren Wilson fatally shot unarmed,
18-year-old Michael Brown in the St. Louis
suburb of Ferguson.
On Nov. 22, a Cleveland officer shot and
killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice after responding to reports of an armed man at a city
park. Rice had been holding a pellet gun.
Two days later, officials announced that a
grand jury had declined to return an indictment in the Brown case. Fires from the resulting protests in Ferguson had barely stopped
smoldering when word came there would be
no charges against the officer in New York
City. Again, angry protesters marched.

the Thayer did cod fishing in the Bering

the Thayer, removed her masts and used it,
as a barge, for transporting ammunition in
British Columbia. After this ended, the
boat returned to cod fishing until her final
trip in 1950. In 1957, the State of
California purchased the C.A. Thayer and
after repairs and refitting, it opened for

refit and repairs. After six successful
patrols, by Dec. 15, 1945, she was decommissioned at Mare Island in reserve until
she was stricken from the Navy Register

Body of slain South African hostage heading home


By Lynsey Chutel
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

JOHANNESBURG Pierre Korkie was


supposed to be released Sunday from 18
months of captivity in Yemen under a deal
struck by an aid group.
Instead, his widow is mourning her dearest friend and companion ... torn from me
and the children when he was killed
Saturday along with American photojournalist Luke Somers during a U.S.-led rescue
attempt. Ten al-Qaida miltants also were
slain in the raid, Yemeni security officials
said.
About 40 U.S. special operations forces
were involved in the half-hour rescue
attempt in Shabwa province, which followed U.S. drone strikes in the area east of
the capital of Sanaa, U.S. officials said.
After a firefight with militants, the rescuers
eventually reached the men and found them
alive but gravely wounded. They both died

shortly after as medics tried to save them.
Korkies body is being flown back to
South Africa and is scheduled to arrive
Monday, the government said. Yolande
Korkie said in a statement that will help her
and the couples two children, Peter and
Lize, reach some sort of closure.
The Yemeni security officials who con-

firmed the deaths of the al-Qaida militants


spoke Sunday on condition of anonymity
because they were not authorized to brief
reporters.
President Barack Obama said he ordered
the raid because Somers was believed to be
in imminent danger. On Thursday, alQaida released a video showing Somers and
threatening to kill him in three days if the
U.S. did not meet the groups unspecified
demands.
No American forces were killed or seriously injured in the raid. Yemens government
said four of its forces were wounded.
Korkie was kidnapped in the Yemeni city
of Taiz in May 2013, along with his wife,
Yolande, who was doing relief work there.
She was released in January without ransom
as a result of negotiations by the South
African humanitarian relief group Gift of
the Givers.
Before the rescue attempt, tribal leaders
in the Yemeni city of Aden were preparing to

fetch Korkie. His captors dropped their ransom fee of $3 million after realizing that
Korkie and the negotiators had no money.
Instead, Gift of the Givers had raised a
$200,000 facilitation fee for the tribal
leaders working directly with the al-Qaida
militants to release Korkie.
I think they realized after 11 months that
we were not lying, said Imtiaz Sooliman,
founder of the relief group. How can a
teacher from an ordinary South African family raise that kind of money? Hes an ordinary guy from a farm.
In her statement, Yolande Korkie chose
not to blame anyone for her husbands
death.
Will we win anything if we hate and
accuse? Will this return Pierre to us? No,
she said.
So today we choose to forgive. We
choose to love. We choose to rejoice in the
memories of Pierre and keep him alive in
our hearts, she added.

Hagel: Afghan training is key in wars final act


By Robert Burns
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TACTICAL
BASE
GAMBERI,
Afghanistan Its only a slight stretch to
say Americas longest war stops here.
The several hundred American soldiers on
this remote base in Afghanistans wild east
are the vanguard of a transformed U.S. military mission meant to avoid the kind of
unraveling of security that happened this
year in Iraq and ensure that the reason for
invading Afghanistan in the first place - alQaidas haven for plotting the Sept. 11
attacks - never recurs.
These soldiers, including elements of the
3rd Infantry Division and the 3rd Cavalry
Regiment, are not fighting the Taliban.

They are trying to script the final chapter of


the U.S. part in a conflict that seems certain
to continue after the Americans leave.
Gamberi, a dusty outpost in Laghman
province near the fabled city of Jalalabad,
will be one of four Train, Advise, Assist
Commands across the country, in addition
to several training establishments in
Kabul, the capital.
Gone are the days of large U.S. combat
forces here or in any other part of
Afghanistan, although U.S. special operations forces will continue, mostly in conjunction with Afghan forces, to hunt down
al-Qaida remnants or other terrorists.
U.S. troops also will take on the Taliban
in situations where they are deemed to pose
a threat to American troop security.

The largest mission, however, is going to


be training the Afghans - not on the front
lines but at bases such as Gamberi.
U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel
dropped in Sunday to get briefed on their work
and to deliver a holiday-season pep talk.
Before a few hundred soldiers, Hagel said
the idea is to work our way, essentially, out
of a job as we transition from the combat
role weve had over the last 13 years to a
mission that puts the onus on Afghan combat prowess.
He said the Afghan army and police forces
have made a lot of progress, at the cost of
much U.S. blood and treasure since 2001.
We dont want to see that roll back downhill, Hagel said.
Gamberi exemplifies what President

Barack Obama calls the new noncombat


mission.
The soldiers here are focused on training
and advising Afghan security forces; its a
mission with NATO allies that will assume a
new name on Jan. 1, Resolute Support.
The long combat mission known as
Operation Enduring Freedom will conclude
at the end of December.
This new phase will not last long, however, if current plans hold.
Virtually all U.S. troops will be gone two
years from now as Obama completes his
final term in office. The hope is that the
Afghans can hold off Taliban militants
who, it is feared, could allow a return of alQaida or other extremist groups if they were
to regain power in Kabul.

OPINION

THE DAILY JOURNAL

President Obamas immigration bait


The Wall Street Journal

resident Barack Obama must be


smiling. Only a month after his
election trouncing, and with the
ink on his immigration decree still
fresh, he has already induced
Republicans to ignore him and start
ghting each other.
The latest GOP self-abuse concerns
how to respond to the decree while
funding the government after the latest
spending bill runs out on Dec. 11.
Speaker John Boehner and most of his
members have gured out that a showdown over funding the immigration
order would be futile. It would end up
with another government shutdown for
which they would get most of the
blame, and at a moment when their
political standing with the public has
begun to rise.
So Boehner is pushing together a
two-part proposal to express GOP
opposition to Obamas action while
avoiding another self-inicted kneecapping. In the current lame-duck session, House Republicans will rst pass
a bill declaring the immigration order
illegal; this will die in Harry Reids
Senate.

Other voices
Then Republicans will attempt to
pass a bill funding the government
through September 2015, except for
the Homeland Security Department,
which they will fund for only a couple
of months. The idea is to take a largescale government shutdown off the
table while leaving the possibility to
ght more narrowly next year, with the
Senate in GOP hands, over funding for
the department that handles immigration enforcement.
You know whats coming: A handful
of Republicans are calling this a cowardly abdication. Congress must
respond to the presidents unlawful
action by funding the government but
not funding illegal amnesty, says
Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions. This is a
perfectly sound and routine application
of congressional authority. In fact, the
nonpartisan Congressional Research
Service reports that last years
omnibus spending bill included 16
such funding restrictions on fee-based
programs.
Hes right that its routine when a

bill passes the Senate and is signed by


the president. But Senate Democrats
will kill any bill that defunds Obamas
order. What happens then?
Thats the question we never seem to
get an answer to. A budget stalemate
means a government shutdown after
Dec. 11. As far as we can tell, Sessions
believes that if Republicans hold rm
during a shutdown, the public will
eventually side with the GOP, Senate
Democrats will roll over and the president will surrender. Does this sound
remotely plausible?
Our guess is that a run off the rails is
precisely what Obama wants, so he can
blame Republicans for a shutdown and
diminish their political standing
before the 114th Congress even
begins.
This is true even on immigration.
Republicans arent likely to overturn
his immigration decree unless they
take the White House, but in Congress
they can minimize its political damage
by passing individual reforms that
solve discrete immigration problems.
Part of Obamas calculation in issuing his edict was to induce Republicans
to overreact. They shouldnt give him
what he wants.

Honesty is a virtue
Editor,
Hats off to Carlmont High School
student Arianna Bayangos for writing
a column defending the virtue of honesty (Cheating is not worth it in
the Nov. 29 edition of the Daily
Journal).
As simplistic as this topic may
sound, Ms. Bayangos describes the
omnipresent cheating which occurs
throughout much of the high school
experience. She acknowledges that
honesty is emphasized and cheating
discouraged, but cites statistics and
personal experience to document the
widespread use of cheating by students nonetheless. Achieving higher
test scores and better grades with
added peer pressure to be competitive
are common excuses used by cheating
students, according to Ms. Bayangos.
Perhaps the most disturbing observation is that this behavior has reached
a normalcy within the typical high
school students experience.
Ms. Bayangos states that the
cheaters dishonesty is unfair to their
peers and ultimately damaging to
their own integrity.How true that is.
I urge all teachers and administrators to take a more a proactive regimen of apprehending code violators.
By doing so, you will be teaching
your students though actions, in addition to stating policies. Helping
your students to learn rsthand that

honesty is a virtue could be one of the


most valuable lessons any student
can learn.
Not a big deal, you may ask? Well,
ask yourself these questions: Do I
have any friends who consider me
untrustworthy? Would I be hired by
any employer if he/she considered me
untrustworthy? What are the consequences of being considered a liar?
These are just a couple of tangible
aspects of failing to possess a true
sense of honesty.
Thank you, Ms. Bayangos, for writing such an important column.I suspect you may have had an uncomfortable experience, or two, by rejecting
the cheating practices used by your
peers.If that is the case, then you
have demonstrated the virtue of
courage, as well.

College tuition is insane


Editor,
In the late 50s and early 60s, college education was free, just as it was
in K-12 schools in California.
Memory, of course, fades, but I have
no recollection of paying tuition,
either at the junior college level, or
at my upper-level state college.
Of course, in college, we had to buy
our own books, unlike in our K-12
level experience, but we had no complaints about that until some of

These days our young people have to
go heavily into debt to get a degree for
which there are few jobs at the end of
their excessively expensive educations.
To make things worse, young people are facing even higher tuition fees
5 percent hikes per year for the
next ve years and for what? Jobs
that either dont exist, have been
exported overseas, or that have been
taken by imported people who can
perform the same functions at a lower
employer cost.
In my time, the GI Bill covered all
my expenses, given that college
tuition didnt exist at the time (or was
so insigicant as to fade from memory). Instead, the GI Bill covered my
room and board expenses. Want
more? I once sought medical attention while in college and it was provided to me atno charge simply
being a registered student covered my
medical needs.
An argument might be made that
circumstances have changed, but I
cant buy that none reasoning a
society is responsible for educating
the next generation. That premise has
always been understood regarding our
K-12 youngsters, and for many years
in California, also covered collegelevel people, even old vets, like me.
Its time to cut the nonsense and
cut out college tuitions.

C

hildren and animals go together. Side by side


they create an almost perfect picture. So imagine the combination of horses that have been
salvaged from race tracks when they are too old to run
and special need kids who have trouble showing their
affection. Put them together and its almost a perfect
match. So the people who put together the Square Peg
program at Half Moon Bay discovered.
The program started 10 years ago when Joell Dunlap,
a race track exerciser, started a small lesson program
where kids with problems could ride non-competitively.
She discovered special need kids showed an affinity
with cast-off horses and visa versa. The magic brew has
helped between 200 to 300 kids since 2004. The nonprofit which she started
with her husband Darius
Dunlop is called Square
Peg from the following
quote by Paul Collins:
The problem with pounding a square peg into a
round hole is not that the
hammering is hard work.
Its that youre destroying
the peg.
The horses are donated
or are rescued. Race horses have short lives. They
are often finished racing
when they are 3 years old
but they can live to be 30.
Square Peg currently takes
care of 22 horses on two
pastures in Half Moon Bay. Classes are small, two to
four children per class. This helps with safety issues.
Head trainer Sigourney Jellins gets assistance from two
to three helpers, many of them volunteers. There is an
initial evaluation, one on one, to see if the child will
benefit from the program. The cost is $75. Group lessons include riding, packing and unpacking (saddling
and unsaddling) and are $75 for a private lesson and
$55 for a group. Scholarships are available.
According to Rachel Bassalion, assistant trainer and
volunteer coordinator, Some horses are as misunderstood as kids. They live in isolation. People dont take
time to talk or get to know them. Kids see this and they
feel safe, comfortable and included. The horses seem to
understand, too, and they take to these kids.
On Square Pegs website,
www. SquarePegFoundation. org, owner Joell Dunlop
writes, We created a friendly space that is physically
challenging but emotionally safe. A space where the
student learns at his or her own pace and marks achievement because he/she is encouraged. Where helping out,
in whatever way you can, is being part of a community
of caring. A space where the care of the animals reminds
us that all life has value and deserves respect and another chance.
***
Square Peg has partnered with the Half Moon Bay Surf
Club to provide an adventure camp for autistic children
and their families. It includes surfing and riding and a
positive vacation alternative for parents. Parenting an
autistic child can sometimes be a full-time job so these
special activities offered by the Square Peg Foundation
can be beneficial for the entire family.

Assemblyman Kevin Mullin- D-South San Francisco,
has raised his profile and importance in Sacramento
with his recent appointment as speaker pro tem. He is
second in line to current Speaker Toni Atkins, D-San
Diego.
This is especially important when both the head of
the state Senate and Assembly are held by Southern
Californians which breaks a long-held tradition of
splitting the jobs between north and south. Head of
this years state Senate president pro tem is Kevin de
Leon of Los Angeles. Previous Senate presidents pro
tem have included Darrell Steinberg from Sacramento;
Don Perata, Oakland; John Burton, San Francisco. For
many years, Willie Brown of San Francisco held the job
of Assembly speaker while the Senate leadership was
usually in Southern California hands. Mullin will regularly preside over floor sessions. In his floor leadership position, he will also help guide legislation and
round up votes on close bills. Atkins choice of the

Tesla wants Texas auto sales regulations loosened


By Will Weissert
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

AUSTIN, Texas Tesla passed on Texas


as the site of its new $5 billion battery factory, but the company still hopes to sell its
electric cars directly to Texans over the
Internet, instead of through dealerships,
and it is dangling the carrot of future investment projects as an incentive.
The automaker doesnt use outside salesmen or franchised dealers to sell its cars
because it says they have too much invested
in promoting traditional, gasoline-powered
vehicles. The practice is prohibited in Texas
and at least somewhat restricted by many
other states laws on new vehicle sales.
Proposals to allow direct car sales in
Texas stalled during the 2013 legislative
session, but the Pala Alto, California-based
automaker appears poised to rev up efforts
to revive the issue as lawmakers head back
to work next month.
Were not asking to blow up the franchise dealer system, said Diarmuid
OConnell, Teslas vice president for business development. We are looking for a
narrow and reasonable window to be able to
promote this new technology ourselves.
No one has pre-filed a bill promoting
direct sales yet, and few in the Legislature
have publicly supported the idea. But outgoing Gov. Rick Perry in March called the

for Texas to have an open conversation
about this.
Of course, Perry said that when Texas was

Mishaps at nuke repository


lead to $54M in penalties
By Susan Montoya Bryan
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. New Mexico


on Saturday levied more than $54 million in
penalties against the U.S. Department of
Energy for numerous violations that resulted in the indefinite closure of the nations
only underground nuclear waste repository.
The state Environment Department delivered a pair of compliance orders to Energy
Secretary Ernest Moniz, marking the states
largest penalty ever imposed on the agency.
Together, the orders outline more than 30
state-permit violations at the Waste
Isolation Pilot Plant in southeastern New
Mexico and at Los Alamos National
Laboratory.
The orders and the civil penalties that
come with them are just the beginning of
possible financial sanctions the Energy
Department could face in New Mexico. The
state says its continuing to investigate and
more fines are possible.
The focus has been on a canister of waste
from Los Alamos that ruptured in one of the
Waste Isolation Pilot Plants storage rooms
in February. More than 20 workers were
contaminated, and the facility was forced to
close, putting in jeopardy efforts around the
country to clean up tons of Cold War-era
waste.
The state accuses Los Alamos of mixing
incompatible waste, treating hazardous
waste without a permit and failing to notify
regulators about changes in the way waste

was being handled. The penalties for the lab


total $36.6 million.
New Mexico does not need to choose
between fulfilling the laboratorys mission
and protecting the environment, Ryan
Flynn, state environment secretary, said in
a letter to Los Alamos officials. DOE now
has an opportunity to learn from these mistakes and implement meaningful corrective
actions that will ensure the long-term viability of the Los Alamos National
Laboratory.
He wrote a similar letter to officials at the
Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, saying New
Mexicans understand the nuclear repositorys importance but that it must be operated and maintained with the highest standards of safety and complete transparency.
The nuclear dumps penalties total $17.7
million.
Moniz has said repeatedly that its a top
priority for his agency to get the Waste
Isolation Pilot Plant on track, and he took
steps earlier this year to shift oversight of
the cleanup work at Los Alamos from the
National Nuclear Security Administration
to his agencys Office of Environmental
Management.
It wasnt immediately clear Saturday
whether the Department of Energy would
seek a hearing on the penalties levied by
New Mexico or pursue settlement negotiations. A message seeking comment was left
with the agency.
Watchdog Don Hancock said the penalties are a good first step.

height of his Tesla charm offense during a


June visit to California, he even drove the
companys Model S around Sacramento.
An op-ed signed by four economics and
law professors from Texas universities
appeared this week in the Austin American
Statesman, and a longer letter signed by
those four and eight other academics was

sent to every member of the Legislature.


They urged lawmakers to modernize vehicle distribution rules and scrap existing regulation that hurts competition via protectionism for auto dealers.
Calls seeking comment from spokesmen
for Gov.-elect Greg Abbott and Dan Patrick,
who will oversee the Texas Senate when he
becomes lieutenant governor in January,
were not returned.
Texas Automobile Dealers Association
lobbyist Robert Brazie said he believes
bills promoting direct car sales will likely
be filed before the end of the 2015 legislative session, but that he expects them to
garner little support. He said an offer of
future Tesla investments would carry little
weight in the state, because when they had
a chance to come to Texas, they didnt.
Brazie added that Tesla explained its
choosing Nevada by pointing to geography, cost and speed of development, reasons that had nothing to do with either
states car sales laws.
OConnell admits that getting the law
changed wont be easy.
Does the fact that we didnt site the factory there complicate things? Absolutely,
OConnell said. But were going to be
doing a number of big battery factories in
the coming years and were going to need
new vehicle factories as well, and theres a
certain logic to doing those in Texas.

For U.S. unemployed, job


market hits turning point
By Christopher S. Rugaber
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Look past the booming


November job gain of 321,000 reported
Friday - the best figure in three years in the
strongest year for U.S. hiring since 1999.
The job market has reached a new milestone on its road to full health: For the first
time since the Great Recession ended 5 1/2
years ago, Americas unemployed are now
as likely to be hired as to stop looking for
a job.
It means that employers have grown confident enough to fill more job vacancies.
And it means the unemployed are now less
likely to succumb to frustration.
The hiring surge owes much to solid consumer spending - on items like cars, electronics and restaurant meals. That, in turn,
has given businesses the means to step up
investment in machinery, computers and
facilities. Thanks to such spending, the
economy grew at a 4.3 percent annual pace
from April through September - the healthiest six-month spurt since 2003. Employers
have responded by adding a robust average
of 241,000 jobs a month this year.
For each month, the government estimates the proportion of the unemployed
who found work and the proportion who
stopped looking. In November, 23 percent
of people who were out of work the previous month found jobs, and the same percentage gave up looking. (The figures are
three-month averages, intended to smooth
out volatility.)
That was the highest percentage of the
unemployed to find work in any month
since the recession officially ended in June
2009. A year ago, fewer than 19 percent of
the unemployed were finding jobs.

The increase marks the first such sustained improvement since the recession
ended. This years acceleration in hiring
has been potent enough to finally soak up a
significant proportion of the jobless.
During the first four years of the recovery,
businesses had hired at a rate that was merely enough to keep up with population
growth.
The brightening picture has been a relief
for people like Kersten Higgins, who had
begun job hunting in July after graduating
from law school. She didnt get a single
interview until November, when she got
four.
Two of the interviews produced offers.
Shes accepted a position at Mutual of
Omaha, where she will help ensure that its
insurance policies comply with federal
rules. Higgins, 26, who lives in Omaha,
Nebraska, starts Monday.
I feel great, Higgins said. This definitely fits into the category of jobs I hoped
to get coming out of law school.
At the same time, the governments jobs
figures illustrate how much improvement is
still needed. Before the recession began in
2007, the unemployed were more likely to
find work than to stop looking in every
month dating to when record-keeping
began in 1990. Since the recession ended,
thats been true for only three months out of
65.
One sour note amid the improving outlook for the unemployed: The jobless are
likelier now than before the recession to
land only part-time work. Though the economy has regained all the jobs lost to the
recession, there are still nearly 2 million
fewer people with full-time work.
In other cases, the jobs the formerly
unemployed have now pay less than those
they had before.

Center in Foster City announced the

49ers come undone in loss to Raiders


By Janie McCauley
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND The San Francisco 49ers are


playing themselves right out of the playoff
picture.
Two duds in 11 days. A faltering quarterback
and offense. A nonexistent pass rush against
a rookie quarterback.
Colin Kaepernick followed one of his worst
outings as a pro with another surprising flop,
and Jim Harbaughs 49ers were stunned by the
Oakland Raiders franchise that gave him his
coaching start in a 24-13 defeat Sunday.

Now, will the Raiders give him his next


job?
Harbaugh sparked further chatter about
where he might wind up next season when he
walked out of the tunnel and straight to
Raiders owner Mark Davis for a quick chat.
Harbaugh worked as an offensive assistant
with the Raiders in 2002-03 under late owner
Al Davis.
My priorities are No. 1 winning football
games, No. 2, with the welfare of our players,
coaches and our staff, and lastly is what my
personal and professional future is, said
Harbaugh, who was later asked if he even

wanted to be back, My priorities are winning games.


Kaepernick threw an interception on the
first play, and found himself on his backside
following a fifth sack when it finally ended
with the Raiders (2-11) celebrating on their
home field a week after a 52-0 loss at St. Louis.
These Niners (7-6) hardly look like a team
that entered the season with the swagger of a
franchise that has reached three straight NFC
championship games and had a Super Bowlor-bust mentality for 2014. That Whos got
it better than us? No-body! has quickly
turned to a mantra of playing to stave off

elimination each week.


Theyre not doing it.
From dominant to dumbfounded.
I dont think we overlooked this team,
tight end Vernon Davis said.
Kaepernick went 18 for 33 for 174 yards
with a touchdown and two interceptions. The
five sacks gave him a league-high 43 this
year.
Im giving everything I have every time I
step on the field, succinct-as-ever
Kaepernick said. I have to play better. I

Tigers claim CCS crown Rose Bowl


set to star
2 top QBs

By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Terra Nova was regarded as the smallest fish


in the smallest pond.
Entering into the Central Coast Section playoffs, the Tigers earned the No. 8 seed out of
eight teams in the small-school Division IV
bracket. Yet it was merely a prelude to one of the
unlikeliest title runs in the history of the CCS.
With a convincing 43-23 victory over No. 3
Monte Vista Christian in Saturday nights
Division IV championship game at
Independence High School, Terra Nova reminded the Bay Area football world that Tigers do
roar by capturing its fourth all-time CCS title.
After a 2-5 start this season, Saturdays win
propelled Terra Nova (7-6) over the .500 mark
for the first time all year. It is only the second
time in CCS history a team has gone over the
.500 mark for the first time with a championship-game victory. The first time was in
1996 when St. Francis bounced back from a 04 start to capture the CCS Division I crown.
We were confident all the way, Terra Nova
quarterback Anthony Gordon said. We had a
great group of kids a great team this whole
time. We just really put the pieces [together]
in the end when it really mattered.
The culmination of Terra Novas Cinderella
season was certainly ripe with storylines.
The most intriguing, in a historic sense, was
Gordons performance. Entering the game
tied for the CCS single-season record with 45
touchdown passes, Gordon threw for three
scores on the night. The record-breaker came
near the end of the first quarter on a 5-yard
screen pass to senior Eric Viana.
Coach called a play to me and I knew I just
had to make a play, Viana said. It was nice
to have the play called to me.
Playing in the final football game of his
high school career, Gordon was 22-of-33
passing for 252 yards his lowest singlegame output of the season while finishing
the year with 48 touchdown throws. His unofficial total for passing yards this season was
4,899 yards, the most in Terra Nova history.
Hes a great quarterback, Viana said. I
got to play with him for four years. Hes one

PASADENA Jameis Winston won the


last Heisman Trophy. It looks as if Marcus
Mariota is going to win the award this year.
And on New Years Day, the two most decorated quarterbacks in college football will go
head-to-head in the Granddaddy of Them All.
Defending national champion Florida State
(13-0) will face West Coast king Oregon (121) in the 101st edition of the Rose Bowl. The
tantalizing matchup was determined by the
College Football Playoff committee on
Sunday.
You have two of the greatest of all time at
their position, Oregon coach Mark Helfrich
said.
The schools will meet for the first time in a
playoff semifinal that could be a showcase
for Winston and Mariota, who both finished
up their regular seasons by leading their
teams to victories in their conferences championship games.
Winston threw for 309 yards and three
touchdowns in the Seminoles 37-35 win
over Georgia Tech in the ACC game, and
Mariota threw two TD passes and ran for three
more in the Ducks 51-13 rout of Arizona in
the Pac-12 final.
You have two of the greatest college football players right now, Florida State coach
Jimbo Fisher said. It makes for great TV and
great competition.
The Seminoles have never played in a Rose
Bowl, but they were in Pasadena just last
January, beating Auburn in the BCS national
title game on the same hallowed turf in
Arroyo Seco. Winston capped one of the
greatest freshman seasons by a quarterback in
the sports history by throwing the winning

Baseball meetings to open with stress on offense


By Ronald Blum
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN DIEGO When baseball officials


last gathered in San Diego for the winter
meetings, the session took place at the
Town and Country Resort in Mission
Valley. No free agents reached agreements
and players claimed collusion, which led to
the first of three grievances against owners
and eventually a $280 million settlement.
The annual get-together is back, this time

in downtown San Diego at the Manchester


Grand Hyatt, and the average salary has
soared from $372,000 to about $3.5 million. But one thing hasnt changed: The
Kansas City Royals are defending AL champions.
Since then, offense has boomed with the
Steroids Era and then gone bust in a new Age
of the Pitcher. With offense at a premium,
teams have pursued hitters with greater
urgency this offseason, leaving pitchers
Max Scherzer, Jon Lester, James Shields and

David Robertson still searching for deals.


Its been interesting that the markets
moved a lot quicker on the bats, both trades
and free agents, Texas Rangers general
manager Jon Daniels said. Most of the
major, bigger-name guys that have been
moved so far, whether its the free-agent
market or the trade market, have been offensive players. I think thats a little reflective
of the marketplace, there arent as many
offensive players out there, the offensive
environment in the game.

Since the end of the World Series, third


baseman Pablo Sandoval has left the champion Giants for a $95 million, five-year
contract with Boston, which also signed
Hanley Ramirez for $88 million over four
years and plans to shift him from shortstop
to left field.
Toronto signed catcher Russell Martin for
$82 million over five years, Detroit kept designated hitter Victor Martinez for $64 million

TD pass to Kelvin Benjamin with 13 seconds
left in Florida States 34-31 victory, capping
a 79-yard drive.
Oregon will be in the traditional postseason destination for the Pac-12 champion for
the third time in six years, and the stands will

lost to Terrelle Pryor and Ohio State in 2010,
but outlasted Wisconsin 45-38 in a thriller in

years.
Mariota hasnt won a national title or
played in a Rose Bowl yet, but the junior
from Hawaii has done nearly everything else
during three incredible seasons as the Ducks
starter. He has thrown a touchdown pass in
all 39 games of his college career while
throwing just 12 interceptions the same
number Winston has thrown in his last six
games.
Mariota is highly likely to pick up the
Heisman in New York later this month before

Stanford and Maryland to play in


Foster Farms Bowl at Levis Stadium

Oregon should have a decided home-field


advantage in Pasadena, given the comparatively easy travel time from the Pacific
Northwest to Southern California along
with a local base. When the Ducks beat
UCLA here in October, the stands were filled
with alumni and fans of the school jokingly
known as the University of California at
Eugene for its large percentage of Golden
State students.

SANTA CLARA Stanford and Maryland


will play in the Foster Farms Bowl in Santa

The rebranded bowl will be played at Levis
Stadium, the new $1.3 billion home of the

played in San Francisco under various names
and title sponsors.
The bowl chose the Cardinal over Arizona
State and Utah out of the Pac-12. Stanford went
7-5 this season, which came after winning the
conference title the previous two years and
making a BCS bowl the last four. Maryland
went 7-5 in its first year in the Big Ten, finishing third in the conferences East Division.
Levis Stadium is about 15 miles from the
Stanford campus, while the Terrapins will
travel about 2,800 miles.

Fresno State vs. Rice in Hawaii Bowl

Defenses have rarely slowed Mariota


during his three years as Oregons starter,
yet the Heisman Trophy ceremony and the
surrounding hoopla might have an effect.
Winston and Fisher candidly acknowledge
the grind of postseason banquets and
recognition before the bowl games even
arrive, and Mariota is likely to be feted
repeatedly during the holidays before the
teams get to Disneyland on the day after
Christmas.

HONOLULU Rice will play Fresno State


in the Hawaii Bowl on Christmas Eve at
Aloha Stadium.
The bowl game is the third straight postseason berth for the Conference USA-member Owls (7-5), who rebounded from three
straight losses to open the season. They won
six straight at one point before losing two of
their final three games.
Rice has won seven or more games in each
of the last three seasons, and its 24 wins over
that stretch are the most over a three-year
span in school history.
The Bulldogs (6-7), who lost to Boise State
in the Mountain West championship game,
are making their second Hawaii Bowl appearance, having lost in Honolulu to SMU in
2012. Fresno State has made 14 bowl appearances in the last 16 seasons.

TERRY BERNAL/DAILY JOURNAL

Top left: Terra Novas Eric Viana dives across the goal line after a 5-yard reception to give quarterback Anthony
Gordon his CCS-record 46th touchdown pass of the season. Top right: Terra Nova head coach Tim Adams
congratulates Reggie Auelua after the senior surpasses the 1,000-yard rushing plateau for the year. Right: Adams,
Gordon, Jordan Genato, Dante Campagna and Javier Murguia with the CCS championship trophy.

TIGERS
Continued from page 11
Hes a great quarterback, Viana said. I
got to play with him for four years. Hes
one of my best friends. Its just been fun
playing with him.
The coach calling Terra Novas plays this season was head coach Tim Adams. In his first year
at the helm after taking over for legendary coach
Bill Gray, it was a tall task to return the team to
prominence so quickly. Adams had to follow in
the footsteps of the coach who led the Tigers to
their last CCS championship in 2010.

Defense delivers
Terra Nova also had to reinvent its defense,
with 11 new starting defensive players no
less.
We started off slow but we came together
as a family, Terra Nova defensive tackle Uriel
Soza said. We did what we had to do. We got
the job done.
The Terra Nova defense entered into play
Saturday having surrendered 445 points
through 12 games for an average of over 37
points per game. The 23 points scored by
Monte Vista was the lowest total of any of
Terra Novas opponents this season.
[The defense] played their best game of the
year, Adams said. Thats been our Achilles.
Early on, it didnt look like it was going to
be the Terra Nova defenses night. Monte
Vista took its first offensive possession with
its back up against the wall after a punt on the
Mustangs 11-yard line.
The Mustangs struck quickly though,
marching downfield on five plays, including
back-to-back passes of 21 and 12 yards by

junior quarterback Ryan Spohn to march into


Terra Nova territory. On the following play,
junior running back Brosnan Kirchick broke
a pitch play for a 40-yard touchdown run to
give Monte Vista a 7-0 lead.
On the first play of Terra Novas following
possession, Gordon threw his first of two interceptions on the night with Monte Vista senior
Luke Dillon nabbing the pick. But with the
Mustangs taking over near midfield, the Terra
Nova defense dug in. Tigers middle linebacker
Dante Campagna came up with a big tackle on
second down to hold a short pass from Spohn
to Mustafa Majeed for just a 3-yard gain. Monte
Vista ultimately went three-and-out.
And Terra Nova, taking over at its own 35yard line, got its offense in gear on the following possession.
Gordon opened the drive with a 14-yard
strike to Anthony Fretty near midfield. Then
running back Reggie Auelua took his first
carry of the night for 6 yards. On the nineplay, 65-yard scoring drive, the junior Auelua
carried four times for a modest 6, 0, 2 and
minus-2 yards. In fact, he managed just 69
yards on 22 carries in the game.

Auelua perseveres
That Auelua was able to carry the ball at all
though was a championship-caliber performance. Wearing a cast on his left arm that
envelops his entire hand after breaking his
arm Oct. 17 against Sacred Heart Prep he still
managed to lead the Tigers in rushing on the
year, surpassing the 1,000-yard plateau with his
second-to-last carry of the game Saturday.
Whats more, he fumbled just once all season,
and that came in Week 1 against Bishop
ODowd, five weeks before he broke his arm.
Hes one of the toughest and most physical runners Ive ever seen, Adams said. Hes
going to be special next year.

After the teams


traded secondquarter touchdowns and 2-point conversions with
Gordon again rallying back to tie it at 15-15,
Terra Nova went to its physical running back
to start and finish the games defining drive.
With five minutes remaining in the first
half, Terra Novas defense held Monte Vista to
another three-and-out possession. The
Mustangs returned a kickoff to the Terra Nova
40-yard line. But the Tigers defense stopped
a pair of wildcat options.
Kirchick took the first snap but carried for
just 1 yard when defensive tackle Mace
Iaulualo drilled him just past the line of scrimmage. On second down, Spohn took the snap
but was stopped for no gain by Campagna and
linebacker Angelo Pera. On third down,
Spohn was pressured by the blitz of defensive
ends Brian Montgomery and Quinton
Highsmith and threw incomplete.
Following a punt that just kicked into the
end zone for a touchback, Terra Nova set forth
on a 12-play, 80-yard drive to take the lead.
Auelua opened with a 6-yard run. Then after
Gordon marched the offense downfield the
big gain came of third-and-11 on a 39-yard
completion to Fretty to the Monte Vista 30yard line Terra Nova advanced to the 1-yard
line for a dramatic fourth-and-goal play with
31 seconds remaining in the half.
Auelua took the dive play and blasted
through the right side for the go-ahead score,
giving Terra Nova a 22-15 lead at the half.

Dominant second half


In the second half, Terra Novas defense
opened with a bang. Following a Monte Vista
three-and-out, culminating in a punt-block by
Pera, the Tigers offense took over at the
Monte Vista 32-yard line. Five plays later,

Gordon hit Marvin Montoya for an 18-yard


touchdown to give Terra Nova a 29-15 lead.
The Tigers went on to score three consecutive
touchdowns in the half, the final two on
Auelua runs.
After Monte Vista scored once more with
five minutes remaining in the game, Terra
Nova ran out the clock, with Gordon taking a
knee at the Monte Vista 12-yard line to end it.
Gordon who is also a standout baseball
player likened the comeback story of the
2014 Terra Nova gridiron gang to that of
Major League Baseballs 2014 World Series
champion San Francisco Giants team, who
captured the crown after qualifying for the
playoffs as a wild-card team.
Were kind of like the Giants, Gordon
said. Thats how we live through it. Just get
to the dance and anything can happen.

Gray saves the day


Although former head coach Gray wasnt in
attendance, he still had a far-reaching effect
on the game. Terra Novas team bus was
approximately an hour late in arriving at
Independence High School. Due to the original bus sent to dispatch the team from Terra
Nova having broken down, the Tigers had to
wait at their campus for an hour until a new
bus arrived.
According to Adams, he placed a telephone
call to Gray who now resides in South Dakota
when the crisis arose. Adams said it was Gray,
by placing a call to league officials to get the
start time pushed back, who saved the day.
Prior to Terra Novas CCS Division III
crown under Gray in 2010, the Tigers previously won the Division II North title under
Bob Lotti in 1982 and again under Mike
Gunning in 88.

Galaxy claim MLS Cup on Keanes goal

in the 79th minute for New England, both


teams had golden opportunities in extra
time including a tantalizingly close free
kick for Donovan, who sailed it over the
bar.
But Keane capped his MVP season in the
second period of extra time when Marcelo
Sarvas lobbed a long pass to the Irish striker, who was nearly unmarked. He gathered it
and beat Bobby Shuttleworth with the same
poise he showed throughout his 19-goal
regular season, celebrating with his usual
cartwheel and finger guns.
We werent going into the game thinking about (Donovan), Keane said. (But) if
we won a championship for him, no one
deserves to go out on a high as much as he
does. Its a great honor to play with him.
The 32-year-old Donovan announced his
retirement in August, saying he had lost
passion for soccer and hungered to find his

identity outside the sport.


The Southern California native took a
slow postgame tour of the StubHub Center
field, a Galaxy scarf draped around his neck,
waving at a sellout crowd loudly chanting
One more year!
Could I play longer physically? Yeah,
probably, Donovan said. But this feels
right to me. Its always better to retire than
get cut, and thats what Im doing.
Despite an outstanding second half and
several extra-time chances, New England
lost the MLS Cup for the fifth time
including three times to the Galaxy on
extra-time goals. Keane followed in the
footsteps of Carlos Ruiz, who beat the Revs
in 2002, and Guillermo Ramirez, who did it
in 2005.
Its tough that we were a part of his storybook ending, but the guy deserves
everything, New England coach Jay

Heaps said of Donovan.


After a scoreless first half, Zardes
another Southern California product
erased his late-season slump when he settled
a cross from Stefan Ishizaki slotted it past
Shuttleworth.
But right before desperation set in, New
England equalized when substitute Patrick
Mullins got past Leonardo and Omar
Gonzalez on a frantic run before chipping
back to Tierney, who beat Jaime Penedo and
silenced the crowd.
I thought we were the aggressor today a
lot of the time, Heaps said. Of course,
theyve got great players and they deserve
everything. No one gave us a chance. I
thought our guys rallied around that and we
were pretty good on the day.
Teal Bunbury pinged a chip shot off
Penedos crossbar in the 85th minute, missing a trophy-winning goal by inches.
Its tough, Bunbury said. You go the
whole season pursuing a goal and a dream to
win a championship. Everyone was pushing each other, so I couldnt be more proud
right now. (But) it is devastating and disappointing for all the fans that came out.
Penedo made a difficult stop on a shot by
Mullins in the first extra-time period. New
England pressed after Keanes goal, but
Penedo made another huge save on Mullins
before the final whistle.
The Revolution had lost just once in their
previous 16 games, and theyll head into
next season with the core of a contender
built around Jermaine Jones and Lee
Nguyen, who were both fairly quiet in the
final.
The Galaxy havent lost at home since
their season opener, but theyll open next
season with a fundamentally different look
without Donovan.
This is my hometown, and I used to really look up to Landon, and I still do, Zardes
said. Its amazing that he gets to retire as a
champion.

something real close to your face youre


going to try to move out of the way, too.
A defense that has carried San Francisco in
recent weeks when the offense couldnt find a
groove showed its flaws against the NFLs
biggest loser.
Carr rarely faced any pressure, giving him
plenty of time to find open receivers downfield. He hit Mychal Rivera down the middle
for a 27-yard gain and completed all five of
his passes for 73 yards on the go-ahead drive.
Carr threw three touchdown passes, including a 9-yarder to Marcel Reece late in the third
quarter that gave the Raiders the lead for good.
The Raiders and 49ers renewed their rivalry at
the Coliseum for the first time since 2002.

They were able to go out there and take


advantage of the mistakes we made. He did a
good job of getting the ball out and using his
protection, linebacker Aldon Smith said. I
dont know if shocks the word Im going to
use. Were a competitive team, were a good
team and every week we go out I expect for us
to win. So I wasnt expecting the result.
The 49ers surrendered the first back-to-back
touchdown drives for the Raiders all season.
Offensive lineman Donald Penn even got
into the action for Oakland, catching a 3-yard
TD pass from Carr. It was the 330-pound
offensive linemans third career touchdown
and second against San Francisco.
49ers outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks was

benched for missing a defensive meeting


Tuesday morning, though he made it to a domestic violence meeting an hour later. He said he
wasnt told he wouldnt start or not play at all.
They have their plan of what they want to
do and all I can do as a player is just abide by
the rules, he said. No, I do not agree. Im
just a player, Im just a number.
NOTES: CB Chris Culliver injured his left
knee when he went down with 11:03 left in the
second quarter, but said afterward he was OK.

CARSON Landon Donovan grabbed


Robbie Keane in a triumphant midfield hug
right before Donovans girlfriend leaped
into his arms. Moments later, Donovan and
Keane raised the silver trophy together amid
fireworks and a confetti blizzard.
Throughout his remarkable soccer career,
Donovan always did know how to finish.
One last time, he did it as a champion.
Keane scored on a breakaway in the 111th
minute, and Donovan retired with his record
sixth MLS title when the LA Galaxy beat the
New England Revolution 2-1 on Sunday in
the MLS Cup.
Gyasi Zardes scored in the 52nd minute as
the Galaxy won their record fifth league title
in the final game for Donovan, the MLS
career scoring leader and most accomplished player in U.S. history.
Im in a little bit of a daze, Donovan
said, still champagne-soaked after the celebration of the Galaxys third league title in
four years. Theres a lot going on. A lot of
obvious excitement. Theres sadness.
Uncertainty. Just pure joy for this team and
what we did. It just feels strange, but Im so
proud what this team accomplished this
year.
Donovan, Keane and the Galaxy have celebrated three times on their home field, the
first two with David Beckham. Retiring
with his skills largely still formidable,
Donovan followed in Beckhams footsteps
by leaving on top, wrapping his 14-year
MLS career with six titles, including two
with San Jose.
Hes done it all, said coach Bruce Arena,
who won his record fifth MLS title. Hes
got very little left to give. Im so happy
hes made this decision. Hes able to go out
a winner.

Ligety wins
Beaver Creek
giant slalom
By Pat Graham
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEAVER CREEK, Colo.


American Ted Ligety used a powerful second run to win a World Cup
giant slalom Sunday despite a broken wrist.
In fourth place after the opening
pass, Ligety found speed where
others couldnt on a deteriorating
course. He finished in a combined
time of 2 minutes, 34.07 seconds.
Alexis Pinturault of France was
second, 0.18 seconds behind, and
Austrias Marcel Hirscher ended up
third.
Ligety had four metal screws
inserted into his wrist after an accident during training Nov 22. He
didnt take much time off after surgery, but had to train without a pole
for a little bit. Ligety said that
actually helped him develop more
balance going around gates.
Hirscher joked that it really didnt matter if Ligety raced with one
pole or even one ski he would
still be fast.
This was Ligetys 23rd career GS
World Cup victory, tying him with
Switzerlands
Michael
von
Gruenigen for second all-time in
the discipline. Fitting, since von
Gruenigen was one of Ligetys
idols as a kid.
The only name ahead of Ligety
on the GS list is Swedish great
Ingemar Stenmark, who had 46
wins in the event.

Hunger Games tops slow weekend at the box office


By Lindsey Bahr
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES The Hunger Games:


Mockingjay - Part 1 continues to dominate
the domestic box office, but awards season
hopefuls Wild and The Imitation Game
proved their might with impressive limited
release showings on this sleepy postThanksgiving weekend.
In its third weekend in release,
Mockingjay - Part 1 earned an estimated
$21.6 million. Lionsgates penultimate
chapter in the massively successful franchise
has now earned $257.7 million domestically,
according to studio estimates Sunday.
And yet, even though Mockingjay - Part
1 is on track to become the second-highest
grossing movie of the year by mid-week,
its still about $78 million shy of where the
previous installment, Catching Fire, was
in its third weekend just last year.
For Paul Dergarabedian, senior media ana-

ot a creature was stirring, not


even a rat. We have many rats,
mice, guinea pigs and even two
chinchillas stirring inside the second oor

lyst for box office tracker Rentrak, this


deficit is only concerning for the overall box
office, which is down 4.6 percent for the year.
We are nearing the finish line for 2014 and
that is a lot of ground to make up, but luckily
we have some big movies on the way, he
says of Into the Woods, Exodus: Gods and
Kings, Annie, Night at the Museum:
Secret of the Tomb and Unbroken.
While audiences wait for that fresh fare,
some still turned out to catch up with the
leftovers.
DreamWorks
Animations
Penguins of Madagascar took second
place with $11.1 million in its second
weekend, while the raunchy Warner Bros.
comedy Horrible Bosses 2 claimed third
place with $8.6 million. The fourth and
fifth place spots went to Disneys animated
Big Hero 6 and Paramounts space
odyssey Interstellar, which earned $8.13
million and $8.0 million respectively.
The Pyramid, Foxs R-rated horror pic,
just barely cracked the top 10 in its debut

weekend with a less-than-stellar $1.35 million from 589 locations.


Its one of those status quo, boring
weekends. But its not boring in the specialized or indie world, Dergarabedian
said. For me thats where the excitement is.
Wild, a Fox Searchlight release starring Reese Witherspoon, opened in 21 theaters Wednesday, earning an estimated
$630,000 over three days for a strong
$30,000 per-theater average. The Oscarwinning actress has been getting lots of
buzz for her soul-searching turn in the
adaptation of Cheryl Strayeds best seller.
The biggest success story of the weekend
is The Weinstein Companys Alan Turing
biopic The Imitation Game, which took
in an estimated $402,000 from eight locations for a stunning $50,250 per-theater
average. Star Benedict Cumberbatch is
also expected to be a major contender on
the awards circuit this season.

small animal suite at our Center for


Compassion. My faves are Trolley, a
guinea pig and Dexter, a rat. All of them
would love to be snuggled in new beds
well before Santa arrives. Their beds
inside our center are temporary. We suggest slight tweaks when helping adopters
set-up permanent housing at home. First,
size matters! A larger cage is the most
basic type of enrichment you can provide
a small animal. A guinea pig, for example,
needs about 7.5 square feet (approximately
30 inches by 36 inches) of housing to be
happy; a pair of guinea pigs could use a
space closer to 30 inches by 50 inches. A
domestic rat is happiest with at least two
cubic feet of space. And, rats are great

climbers who like multiple levels. No


small animal enjoys a cage with a wire
bottom; this is quite uncomfortable on
their feet. Cages should be elevated and
away from breezeways or drafts; theyre
best placed in your living area, so they
can be close to close. Owners assume larger cages are harder to clean, but its the
opposite; larger cages prevent buildup of
waste since they allow animals to separate
bathroom areas from other activities.
Larger cages also increase the likelihood
that pairs of small animals will co-exist
peacefully. Choosing an exercise wheel is
another place where owners misstep.
Some dont provide one (big mistake)
while others get one that is too small. A

and hammocks. Spot clean daily and give
a thorough cleaning weekly.

munity, Riggins wrote in an email to
the Daily Journal.
No price tag is attached to the project
because it isnt yet defined, Beth said.
Meaning, the LOI allows us to really delve into types of programs that we
envision that will be offered which then
generates the type of facilities needed.
That will be the next step if the LOI is
approved, Beth said.
Although no hard figures are attached,
Beth estimates the cost will be in the
several millions of dollars and split
roughly equally between the two partners depending upon what facilities are
included. For example, a pool at the
YMCA may cost more than a theater
installed by the city.
The Stanford in Redwood City project
provides $1 million in seed money
from its development agreement with
the city. Other funding includes development fees from the downtown construction boom the city receives
approximately $10,000 per residential
unit, Beth said naming rights, capital project money and maybe even
bonds.
Under the proposed terms, the YMCA
would lease city property for 55 years

remain so until Nov. 17.


However, the rains of October and early
November substantially moistened the
ground prompting the cycle to begin anew.
We really had our fingers crossed, saying
we know we need the rain but just not yet,
said SVCW Manager Dan Child.
Depending upon how much rain next
spring brings, Child is hopeful the soil can
dry earlier because the area neednt first be
drained of standing water and secure the
four-month window before precipitation
starts up again.
The SCVW must build more facilities due

with a chance of two 10-year renewals


at a rate of $1 per year. The complex
would including two coordinated facilities, one YMCA piece including aquatic, sports and after-school programs
and a city building with programs for
seniors, veterans and others.
Working together is financially beneficial, efficient and might increase
volunteerism, Beth said.
The Veterans Memorial Center on
Madison Avenue relies on volunteers to
run services like bingo and the gift
shop, but isnt attracting any new seniors. A new facility can attract new, and
young seniors, who will use the
YMCAs model of volunteers running a
majority of programming, Beth said.
The existing four-story veterans center has more than 100,000 annual visits
but is slowly deteriorating and its
hodgepodge design of separate buildings segregate participants, Beth said.
Herkner Pool is seasonal, outdated
and not easily accessible, there is no
central welcoming center which can
confuse visitors about where to go and
maintenance is costly.
The city was inspired to look at a
joint relationship after researching a
similar relationship between the
YMCA and the city of Morgan Hill
which is the closest model to what
might happen on the Peninsula, Beth
said.
Once the letter of intent is approved,

to new regulations so plans to fill the


impoundment to provide more land and create a new area for birdwatching near the
treatment plant.
We are dedicated to having something for
the birds at some point, Child said.
Doing so will require its own permitting
process via multiple agencies. Between the
drying and permitting times, Child estimated in a prepared statement that the area
wont have any water in it until at least late
fall 2015 and possibly longer.
SVCW drained the impoundment in
January after ducks began dying. U.S. Fish

city and YMCA staff will begin preliminary planning to define a project
description for the required California
Environmental Quality Act process tentatively projected for completion by
March 31. Conceptual plans, including
approximate square footage, would be
finished by April 30, 2015, after which
a CEQA consulting firm can be hired.
Thats when the real hard work gets
started, Beth said.
The city and YMCA must also decide
whether to use one architect for both
pieces or one mutually agreed upon.
And lastly, what to call the new center
is also up in the air. Beth said it is
important to keep the focus on veterans
and seniors so the name may remain the
same, rooms within may be named or
something completely different.
We will work on that together, he
said.
Riggins said YMCA will continue
operating its current location until the
new project is finished at which time all
programs and services will be transferred.

and Wildlife confirmed the cause as avian


cholera similar to that killing birds in
Hayward. As a preemptive move, SVCW
removed the remaining birds and drained the
pond.
The pond has stood on the west side of the
sewage treatment plant since 1998 when it
was created to eliminate dust from the barren
dirt which in turn helps protect the plants

the pond loses through evaporation and the

live, he said, according to a video of
the meeting. When I think of a community, I think of bedrooms, kitchens,
garages, but I also think of parks and
public areas. Im not convinced theres
enough open space.
The proposed development is obligated to provide 20 percent of the
dwellings as affordable to low- and
moderate-income households. This
means at least seven of the 35 units
must be designated for this purpose. For
the projects affordable units, the applicant will work with the citys first-time
homebuyer administrator to select the
buyers through an application and lottery process. In addition to income
requirements, staff will establish other
eligibility criteria in consultation with
the City Council. In exchange for the
affordable housing, the developer, City
Ventures, is asking to be allowed to
increase allowable building height
from 25 feet to 35 feet and to allow the
use of one architectural prototype. The
other incentive the developer is requesting is building slightly denser units,
according to a staff report.
The site is immediately bounded by
Mission Road to the southwest, with
medical office uses directly across
Mission Road, a Pacific Gas and
Electric utility easement and singlefamily homes to the northwest,
Baywood Avenue and single-family
homes to the northeast, and singlefamily homes and the Edgewood Way
cul-de-sac to the east. El Camino High
School is approximately one block to
the northwest, Sunshine Gardens
Elementary School is about a quarter
mile to the northeast and Sunshine
Gardens Shopping Center is approximately one block to the southeast,
according to the staff report.

either a tandem or side-by-side configuration. The single family condominiums on the upper portion of the site
provide between three- and five-bedrooms and range in size from 1,900
feet to 2,600 square feet, with a one- or
two-car garage and a driveway to provide additional parking area, according
to the staff report. To improve privacy
for the neighbors in existing homes,
Rotstein said the architects added windows that were higher up.

Neighborhood concerns
The city held a neighborhood meeting Nov. 5. About 20 residents attended
and concerns raised included a strong
desire to not allow extension of
Edgewood Avenue into the project site,
with preference that all townhomestyle condominium units have vehicular access from Mission Road only and
too many guest parking spaces provided along Edgewood Avenue extension.
There were also questions related to how
affordable unit tenants are selected and
how the three-story height allowance
will impact privacy of existing residences, according to a staff report.
The most prominent concern at the
neighborhood meeting was the concern
related to the extension of Edgewood
Avenue, said Billy Gross, a senior
planner with the city.
Residents disagreed the project would
be consistent with the current neighborhood, including Laura Fanella, who
lives two doors from the development.
The 35-foot heights and additional traffic with opening up access to Edgewood
Road are her main concerns.
As much as I know we need to have
housing, Im not sure this property is
consistent with that, she said,
according to a video of the meeting.
It looks like the city is planning on
taking our blocks.
Additionally, Gregory Young, an
adjacent property owner to the project,
wrote a letter to the city opposing the
dense units. He noted the project is not
compatible with the surrounding neighwould anticipate in 12 to 18 months to
start to see some new activity.
A key to capturing peoples attention will be the new one acre mixed-use
project for 406-418 San Mateo Ave.
with 83 residential units, 6,975 square
feet of commercial space and underground parking containing 106 parking spaces approved in late October by
the City Council, said Councilman
Ken Ibarra.
Realistically theyre not going to
be lining up, he said. Im very anxious because one project passed in late
October will probably capture peoples attention. Im anticipating once
the year begins well be pleasantly
surprised with applicants.
The city will be welcoming in developers with open arms, said Mayor Jim

borhood and that the plans intrude on


his privacy.
City Ventures has prepared a site
plan that depicts how the overall
project would be affected by providing the southern portion of the site
with vehicle access only from
Mission Road. One alternative would
allow density to be maximized on the
southern portion of the site and minimize the need for traffic access from
other neighborhood streets with residential construction above podium
parking; however, this alternative
would require a zoning amendment and
would not be in keeping with the surrounding single-family neighborhood, according to the staff report.
The plan were proud to show

its a great place to live.
Maintaining the character of the current neighborhood is important to the
developers, Rotstein said.
Meanwhile, the 20 acres of open
space in the Sign Hill area of South
San Francisco hasnt had any movement on being developed. Residents
in that area are adamantly opposed to
development on the land currently for
sale, Garbarino said.
The proposal is going to the City
Council in January 2015, the city
said. The project is categorically
except
from
the
California
Environmental Quality Act and thus
doesnt require environmental study,
according to the staff report.
In other Planning Commission news,
11-year Planning Commissioner Rich
Ochsenhirt will be resigning Dec. 11 to
serve on the South San Francisco
Unified School District Board of
Trustees, which he was elected to this
November.

ANSWERS

MONDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2014


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Slow down and
make critical decisions based on facts. Think matters
through and ferret out information that can help you
make a wise choice. Its better to be safe than sorry.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Dont jeopardize
your reputation. Stay away from anyone whose ethics
or morals are in question. Others will judge you by the
company you keep. Choose your friends wisely.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Look for a challenge
that stimulates your senses and motivates you to do
your best. Regardless of what path you take, patience
and hard work will be required.

WEEKENDS PUZZLE SOLVED

Each row and each column must contain the


numbers 1 through 6 without repeating.
The numbers within the heavily outlined boxes,
called cages, must combine using the given operation
(in any order) to produce the target numbers in the
top-left corners.
Freebies: Fill in single-box cages with the number in
the top-left corner.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Ask pertinent


questions, or someone will offer you a false
impression. Choose a reliable friend or relative to give
you an honest assessment of your current situation.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) Dont be a pushover.
Stick to your plan and dont let anyone talk you out of
doing something you have your heart set on. Missed
opportunities will lead to regrets.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) An increase in
professional commitments will keep you busier
than usual. Undue stress will cause minor health
problems. Its OK to ask for help if you feel
overwhelmed or if you fall behind.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Dealing with relatives
may try your patience. Pick your battles. If you turn

a minor disagreement into a major confrontation,


everyone will be upset and no one will come out a
winner.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Try not to get too
frazzled about the changes going on around you.
Jumping to conclusions before all the facts are in will
add to your distress.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) If you are feeling pressured
by someone, cozy up to fun, optimistic friends. Avoid
sharing your disappointments with others, and keep
your focus positive.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your patience will be
tested. Your peers may feel that they have all the
answers. Get your point across without alienating
the people you deal with daily if you want to avoid

repercussions.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Youll receive mixed
signals from a colleague today. If you are not sure what
is expected of you, ask. Speculation on your part will
only add to the confusion.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Today is about making
money and getting ahead. Take control of your
situation. Attend business courses, go for interviews
and find a market for your ideas and skills.
