Immigrants get driver’s licenses
California Department of Motor Vehicles expects 1.4 million applications in next three years

STANTON, Calif. — Mexican
immigrant Jesus Moreno emerged
from a California
Department of Motor Vehicles
office on Friday with official permission to do something he’s been
doing here for more than a decade:
The 30-year-old vending-machine

installer, who has forked over hundreds of dollars in traffic tickets and
car-impound fees as an unlicensed
driver, became one of the first to get
a permit under a new program to
give driver’s licenses to the
nation’s largest population of
immigrants in the country illegally.
“It’s not that I want to drive,” said
Moreno, after leaving a packed
DMV office in Orange County. “It’s

a necessity.”
Thousands of people crammed
into DMV offices and waited in
hours-long lines to apply for a
license as California became one of
10 states to authorize immigrants in
the country illegally to drive.
The DMV expects to field 1.4 million applications in the first three
years of a program aimed at boosting road safety and making immi-

grants’ lives easier. By midday
Friday, more than 6,100 immigrants had applied, said Jessica
Gonzalez, a DMV spokeswoman.
Only four DMV offices were taking walk-in applicants. Hundreds of
immigrants donning scarves and
gloves and clutching driver handbooks braved near-freezing temperatures in the Orange County city of
Stanton to try to get a place in line

before dawn.
“This is a big opportunity for
me,” said Sammy Moeung, a 24year-old Cambodian immigrant
eager to get a license to avoid having to ride his bike to work at his
brother’s doughnut shop. “Having
this is moving a step forward in life,
in California and the United States.”

Where the wind picks up
Foster City invests in, reopens popular kiteboarding park
By Samantha Weigel

Major renovations at one of the
Bay Area’s premier windsurfing
and kiteboarding parks will culminate with the grand reopening ceremony at the East Third Avenue
Park in Foster City Monday.
After a three-year collaboration
between the windsurfing community and city staff combined with
contributions from national, local
and nonprofit agencies, the
revamp now offers a safer and more

accessible park for all to enjoy.
Approximately $861,000 went
toward renovations such as new
restrooms, rinse stations, synthetic turf areas, a drinking fountain, parking lot restriping, an
improved drainage system and new
Mandi Browning, a former professional synchronized swimmer
turned kiteboarder and Los Altos
resident, said the site offers some
of the best sporting conditions
around and was prompted to contact the city when she saw the poor

conditions of the park.
“When the wind season is going
on, it provides probably the most
consistent wind you’re going to
find Bay Area wide for us to kite
probably more frequently throughout the entire season,” Browning
said. “I noticed how run-down it
was with all the moldy carpet and
debris and just how unkempt it
was. There were children running
around with broken glass, it’s really something that just broke my

Former San Mateo mayor Claire
Mack should temporarily fill the
council seat vacated by Robert
Ross’ abrupt departure until the
city can hold a special election in

Lim suggested Mack step in for
the next 11 months and she has
agreed to serve if asked.
“I’m more than happy to help
my city out,” Mack said. “I was
surprised and flattered that anyone
would think I could still be of service to the city.”
Mack served on the City Council
for 12 years before exiting in
Lim said he thought of Mack
because she is still active in the

senior and represents the North

well-represented currently on

knowledge and

Jail time for attempted
pimping and pandering

A 23-year-old transient accused of trying to rape a woman
crossing the San Mateo Caltrain station’s underground stairs
last year accepted a plea deal on assault charges after prosecutors said they couldn’t necessarily prove sexual intent.
Fernando Chamale-Boch pleaded no contest to felony
counts of attempted kidnapping and assault in return for an
immediate sentence of five years prison. The assault charge
stemmed from an earlier unrelated case also settled as part of
the plea deal.
In the more recent case, Chamale-Boch had originally been
charged with kidnapping with the intent to rape, assault with
the intent to rape, false imprisonment and battery. He was
set for a Feb. 2 jury trial before taking the deal.
San Mateo police arrested ChamaleBoch Oct. 20, 2013, after a woman identified him as the man she said grabbed her in
the darkened station hallway approaching
the stairwell about 7 p.m. that Sunday.
The suspect covered her mouth as she
screamed, and pulled her 6 feet down the
stairs as she punched and scratched at his
face. After she fought herself free, she
called police who found him nearby later
that night with scratches on his face.
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe called
the resolution a “good disposition” for
both the prosecution and Chamale-Boch. The case didn’t
have proof issues as to his actions, Wagstaffe said, but “his
specific intent in grabbing her as he did was certainly going
to be an issue in the case.”
His defense attorney questioned Chamale-Boch’s ability to
stand trial but in June a majority of court-appointed doctors
found him competent.
Chamale-Boch has credit of 877 days against his prison
term and must serve 50 percent of the remainder. He must also
pay the victim restitution to be determined at a Feb. 6 hearing.

A 22-year-old man whose original
human trafficking charges were
dropped because his alleged victim
disappeared pleaded no contest to
felony charges of attempted pimping
and attempted pandering.
In return for his plea, a judge capped
Shayne Joshua Lusalah’s maximum
term at 364 days jail when he is sentenced Feb. 2. Prosecutors had sought

up to three years in prison.
According to prosecutors, Lusalah
reportedly prostituted a 24-year-old
woman in several counties including
San Mateo and attacked her in June at
a Bayshore Boulevard motel when she
was too tired to perform another act.
Lusalah, of Fresno, changed his
plea four days into his jury trial on
charges of pimping, pandering and
misdemeanor vandalism. Prosecutors
dismissed human trafficking and

assault charges prior to trial because
the alleged victim is nowhere to be

belongings from the room because
she didn’t want to work and later

Lusalah remains in custody on
$200,000 bail pending sentencing.

SFPD make numerous arrests over New Year’s holiday
Hannah Albarazi

SAN FRANCISCO — As thousands of revelers gathered in downtown San Francisco
to usher in the New Year, San Francisco
police were busy making arrests stemming
from shootings, firearm possessions and
public intoxication, according to a police
San Francisco police Officer Albie
Esparza said that in the city's downtown
area near the Embarcadero at least 18 people
were arrested for public intoxication.
Citywide, police responded to two shootings on New Year's Eve and two shootings
on New Year's Day.
The first shooting was reported shortly
after 6 p.m. on New Year's Eve in the area of
Jerrold Avenue and Third Street in San
Francisco's Bayview District.
According to the police investigation, a
red two-door sedan pulled over in front of a

The suspect vehicle attempted to flee the
area but crashed into another vehicle, injuring at least four people.
The victims suffered injuries that are not
considered life-threatening, police said.
The suspects fled the scene but police
were able to locate one suspect and a gun
during a search of the area.
The suspect, described as a 26-year-old
man, was arrested, according to police.
Police have not released any information
about the possible second suspect.
The second shooting on New Year's Eve
was reported at about 10:20 p.m. in the 700
block of Market Street, about a block from
Union Square.
In this shooting, a male suspect shot one
victim in the upper chest and another victim
in the foot, police said.
Officers apprehended the suspect after a
brief pursuit and recovered a handgun at the

scene, police said.
Neither victim's injuries are considered
life-threatening, police said.
San Francisco police said the first shooting reported in the city in 2015 came in at
12:28 a.m. near Taylor and North Point
streets near San Francisco's Fisherman's
Wharf area.
According to police, the suspect attempted to shoot someone in the area, but missed.
Instead the gunfire struck a bystander on the
sidewalk, police said.
The bullet struck the victim, described as
a woman in her 50s, in her lower back,
police said.
She was taken to San Francisco General
Hospital with injuries not considered lifethreatening.

Kaiser mental health staff plans California strike
SAN FRANCISCO — Hundreds of Kaiser Permanente’s mental health professionals plan to go on a weeklong strike in
California starting Jan. 12 to protest what they say is the
health care provider’s failure to offer timely, quality mental
health care.
The Contra Costa Times reports Kaiser Permanente’s 2,600
psychologists, therapists and social workers are represented
by the National Union of Healthcare Workers.
They say the problem is in part due to inadequate staffing and
that more than 700 other Kaiser workers who also report
staffing problems will join their strike.
Kaiser says in a statement it plans to meet with the union
next week.
The state fined Kaiser $4 million in 2013 for failing to provide mental health treatment in a timely manner.

Gov. Brown names top deputy to university board
SAN FRANCISCO — Gov. Jerry Brown has filled the last
opening on the University of California’s governing board
with a member of his staff.
The governor on Friday named his legislative affairs secretary, Gareth Elliott, to a 12-year term on the UC Board of
Regents. The 44-year-old Elliott is a Humboldt State
University graduate who has been Brown’s top legislative liaison for five years.
The appointment comes amid a looming budget showdown
over funding for the 10-campus university system. Over
Brown’s objections, a majority of the regents in November
approved a series of provisional tuition increases UC President
Janet Napolitano said would be implemented unless the system
received more money from Sacramento.
Brown also named two regents in November, but 11 of the
board’s 18 appointed regents were appointed by former Gov.
Arnold Schwarzenegger. Another vacancy isn’t expected until

LGBT-owned businesses get diversity boost
By Lisa Leff

SAN FRANCISCO — As a Mexican-American
woman who started her own consulting firm in
Los Angeles, accountant Sonia Luna has taken
advantage of programs aimed at helping minority- and women-owned businesses compete for
government and corporate contracts. But
increasingly, the fact that Luna also is a lesbian
entrepreneur hasn’t hurt either.
Federal agencies, organizations such as the
National Football League and more than onethird of Fortune 500 companies are now trying
to expand their vendor pools by explicitly
encouraging bids from gay, lesbian and transgender contractors.
The little-known outreach efforts mirror
long-standing “supplier diversity” initiatives
aimed at creating economic opportunities for
businesses owned by racial minorities, women
and disabled veterans.
“It allows me to be even prouder of who I am,”
said Luna, who hopes her firm, Aviva Spectrum,
will benefit from a new California law requiring
large utility companies to report how much they
spend with LGBT contractors. “And it allows
the marketplace to acknowledge a class that has
been denied recognition as a minority group.”
The trend has not been without controversy.
While running for the GOP gubernatorial
nomination in California this year,
Assemblyman Tim Donnelly let his supporters
know he voted against the groundbreaking utility contract law that took effect Jan 1.
“Government-mandated discrimination in
favor of some market participants and against
others is the very antithesis of equal opportunity, fair play and free competition,” Donnelly

“It allows me to be even prouder of who I am.
And it allows the marketplace to acknowledge a class
that has been denied recognition as a minority group.”
— Sonia Luna, accounting consultant

Public agencies are prohibited under
California law from using race, sex or ethnicity
in the awarding of contracts, and the new law
does not create any preferences or set-asides for
LGBT-owned enterprises. Instead, state regulators will soon consider whether to set voluntary
percentage targets for utilities such as Verizon,
Pacific Gas & Electric and AT&T to meet.
To be certified as LGBT-owned, businesses
qualify through a process overseen by the
National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of
Commerce, a 12-year-old advocacy group based
in Washington, D.C. Applicants must submit
documents proving ownership and prove their
lesbian, gay, transgender or bisexual status
through personal references or other evidence.
Over 700 companies have completed the
process in the last decade while the LGBT chamber has worked with corporations — and, since
President Barack Obama took office, with the
U.S. Small Business Administration — to
recruit those companies as potential suppliers.
Agrowing number of companies — including
IBM, PepsiCo, ConAgra Foods, Marriott
International and American Airlines — have
recently started tracking how much they spend
with LGBT contractors.
Denise Naguib, Marriott’s vice president of
sustainability and supplier diversity, said about
1 percent of the hotel giant’s $450 million

“diverse spend” last year was with gay-owned
businesses that supplied everything from technology and furniture to translation services and
When it comes to winning a piece of the
$500 billion worth of goods and services the
U.S. government buys from private companies
each year, federal law does not recognize gayowned enterprises as it does businesses owned
by veterans, women, African-Americans,
Hispanics, Native Americans, AsianAmericans, and Asian Indians.
LGBT chamber President Justin Nelson said
that is unlikely to change under the current
Congress. Nelson said he hopes to persuade
Obama to issue an executive order similar to one
Bill Clinton signed that directed government
departments to develop plans for awarding 5
percent of their procurement dollars to womenowned companies.
The SBA has for the last three years participated in a contracting fair hosted by the LGBT
chamber to give gay business owners access to
federal procurement officers from more than a
dozen departments. Last year, the agency also
co-sponsored an economic empowerment tour
that was designed to reach business people who
were both gay and members of racial minority
Deputy Associate Administrator Eugene
Cornelius Jr. said the agency’s involvement

stemmed from a June 2009 memo Obama issued
instructing his department heads to make sure
their policies and programs did not discriminate
against LGBT people as far as federal law would
allow. But the SBA also sees targeting LGBT
businesses as consistent with its mandate to
serve other underrepresented groups, Cornelius
“What we can do is educate the federal government and local government that this community makes up the very communities they are trying to reach,” he said.
In California, the NFL made history in
November when the league and the nonprofit
committee responsible for producing the 2016
Super Bowl invited gay-owned companies for
the first time to a series of workshops where
small suppliers heard about how they might
cash in on the action. The game is scheduled to
be played at the San Francisco 49ers new stadium in Santa Clara, California.
The outreach already has paid off in a small
way for San Francisco photographer
Christopher Dydyk, who heard about the Super
Bowl contracting fairs from the Golden Gate
Business Association, one of the nation’s 70 or
so gay chambers of commerce.
He met a representative from the Super Bowl
50 Host Committee at one of the events and was
hired to document the launch of the committee’s
charitable arm this month.
Dydyk said he never would have thought to
seek work in the Super Bowl, let alone that his
being gay would open any doors.
“It’s like when they are going through bids —
this one is woman-owned and this one is minority-owned — it helps you stand out a little bit
more,” he said, “like putting perfume on a

State may alter death-row policy for mentally ill

SACRAMENTO — A practice of withholding calls and visits at a new psychiatric unit
on death row at San Quentin State Prison
can discourage inmates from seeking the
treatment they need, a court-appointed
overseer said this week.
The California Department of Corrections
and Rehabilitation is re-examining its policy of automatically blocking family contacts for newly admitted patients as a result,
department spokeswoman Dana Simas said
The state opened the 39-bed unit in
October in response to a federal judge’s ruling a year ago that condemned a lack of
proper mental health treatment for inmates.
Newly arriving patients are not permitted
family visits, telephone calls and other
privileges that they had on death row, special master Matthew Lopes said in a

progress report Tuesday. The privileges are
gradually restored as incentives while the
patients undergo treatment.
While the psychiatric program otherwise
is generally going very well, that policy
often doesn’t work and can be counterproductive because it punishes inmates who
seek treatment for their mental illness, he
Lopes said withholding privileges promotes “a system of institutionalized disincentive to treatment,” noting that several
patients fought being placed in the unit.
“CDCR is committed to providing quality
health care to all inmates and we are pleased
that the Special Master found the new San
Quentin Psychiatric Inpatient Program is
functioning at such a high and effective
level,” Simas said in an email.
Attorney Michael Bien, who sued on
behalf of inmates to force the state to
improve treatment, agreed with the over-

seer’s criticism. Death row inmates already
have severely limited contact with the outside world, and the encouragement of family
members can be crucial to helping restore
their mental health, he said.
“Everybody agrees that the people in
there are very, very sick and need treatment,” Bien said. “But they can’t be treated
with punishment.”
The same problem is built into the state’s
$1 billion medical and mental health treatment complex that opened in 2013 in
Stockton, Bien said.
Exercise yards in the Stockton mental

health units are so tiny and restrictive that
they look more like they belong at maximum-security Pelican Bay State Prison,
home of the state’s toughest isolation unit,
he said. Patients in both the Stockton and
San Quentin facilities also are often
restrained in specially made chairs or have
their movements restricted in other ways
while they are in group therapy or undergoing counseling.
“We don’t want programs to be so
unpleasant and so segregation-like that
patients see them as punishment rather than
treatment,” Bien said.

Dispute could lead Cuomo: A liberal lion
to name changes
at national park
By David Klepper

“He had room for everybody. There’s so much
polarization these days.He was a big tent visionary.”



— A dispute over the names of such
iconic Yosemite National Park
locations as the Ahwahnee Hotel
and Curry Village has the park service considering renaming them.
Delaware North Companies, the
park’s current concessionaire, has
told park officials it owns the
names and should be paid as much
as $51 million for them if another
company takes over the concession contract.
The park service is currently
soliciting bids for the contract and
disputes Delaware North’s ownership contention.
“These names are historical,”
park spokesman Scott Gediman
( “They
are part of Yosemite. The Ahwahnee
dates back to 1927, and Curry
Village goes back to 1899. These
places and their names belong to
the American people.”
Still, Gediman said the park service could change the names to protect other bidders from the added
cost of buying them.
The contract to operate concessions at Yosemite is among the
largest in the national park system
with over $120 million in gross
revenue each year. Delaware North
won the contract for 15 years in the
1990s and was granted extensions
to run the concessions after the
contract was supposed to end in
2008, according to the Bee. The
new contract is set to be awarded in
mid-2015, and some observers say

Delaware North may be trying to
lessen its value for any potential
competitors. The company has not
decided yet whether it will bid on
the new contract, said Lisa Cesaro,
a spokeswoman for Delaware North
at Yosemite.
Cesaro said the company was
required as part of its 1993 contract
to purchase all assets and liabilities
in the park, including intangible
assets such as the rights to the
names. So it is only natural at this
point that it would seek to sell
them back, she said.
“We are in favor of a fair and
transparent bidding process for the
Yosemite concession contract,
which is why we believe it is
important to have a mutually agreed
upon value for the concessioner
assets, both tangible and intangible, established in advance of the
bid submission due date,” she said
in a statement.
Jim Stellmack, director of marketing for DNC Parks & Resorts at
Yosemite, told the Bee the National
Park Service has long recognized
the existence of intellectual property rights in concession contracts, and that Delaware North
owns the names of the Yosemite
businesses it operates to prevent
other people from using them inappropriately.
The company has acquired trademark registrations for nearly all the
places it manages at Yosemite, the
San Francisco Chronicle, citing
federal records, reported.
But Melville Owen, an attorney
who specializes in trademark law,
said that doesn’t mean it owns the
names of the sites.

ALBANY, N.Y. — With former
Gov. Mario Cuomo’s death, liberals have lost one of their last, best
champions, a proud populist who
represented an older breed of
During his three terms as governor, the former minor league baseball player from Queens championed
reproached Ronald Reagan and
flirted — repeatedly — with a
run for the
White House. In
address at the
De m o c r a t i c
Na t i o n a l
Convention, he
Mario Cuomo talked of a
nation of haves
and have-nots, of a yawning disconnect between rich and poor
largely ignored by Reagan.
“A shining city is perhaps all
the president sees from the portico
of the White House and the veranda
of his ranch, where everyone
seems to be doing well,” he said.
“Mr. President, you ought to know
that this nation is more ‘A Tale of
Two Cities’ than it is just a
‘Shining City on a Hill.”’
The 82-year-old Cuomo died
Thursday at his home in
Manhattan of natural causes from
heart failure just hours after his
son Andrew began his second term
as New York’s chief executive.
Services are planned for Tuesday
morning at a Manhattan church.
Mario Cuomo’s progressive
legacy is reflected today by U.S.
Massachusetts and New York City
Mayor Bill de Blasio, whose own
2013 campaign kickoff speech
recycled the “Tale of Two Cities”
By contrast, Andrew Cuomo

— Rev. Jesse Jackson

Democratic Party’s recent tendency toward centrism. While Cuomo
is socially liberal on gun control
and abortion, he’s seen as more
fiscally conservative, willing to
battle teachers unions and supportive of business friendly tax cuts.
The elder Cuomo came from an
older, more liberal strand of
Democratic politics that included
Franklin Roosevelt and Adlai
Stevenson. Like them, Cuomo
combined public eloquence with an
intellectual rigor. Unlike those
two, however, he never ran for
president, despite pleas to do so in
1988 and 1992.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson, who
also spoke at the 1984 convention, said Cuomo’s supporters “literally begged him to run.” Jackson
said Cuomo’s brand of outspoken
liberalism is needed now that “too
few have too much and too many
have nothing.”
“He had room for everybody.
There’s so much polarization these
days,” Jackson said. “He was a big
tent visionary.”
Even those who disagreed with
his policies respected Cuomo’s
passion and his rise as the son of
Italian immigrants to the pinnacle
of American politics. Republican
state Senate Leader Dean Skelos
called him “one of the great orators of our time.”
In a twist, Cuomo’s decision not
to seek the presidency in 1992
cleared the way for Bill Clinton,
who steered the Democratic Party
toward the center. Clinton also
tapped Andrew Cuomo — a top
adviser to his father — as his secretary of Housing and Urban
While Mario Cuomo represented
“what Democrats used to be, what
Democrats were before the

Clintons came on the scene,”
Andrew Cuomo shows the party’s
evolution since then, said
Christina Greer, professor of
political science at Fordham
University. But Greer said the elder
Cuomo’s liberal legacy still resonates through his son.
“The son is always different
from the father. We saw that with
the Bushes, with the Romneys,”
she said. “But you can’t be with a
man like Mario Cuomo for 20
years without having the core
essence of who he is rub off on
Mario Cuomo famously said
“you campaign in poetry; you
govern in prose” and if he was the
orator, his son is the operator, the
one who passes state budgets on
time and — as when he resolved a
threatened Long Island Rail Road
strike last year — makes trains run
on schedule.
“Andrew Cuomo is more the
prose guy,” said Baruch College
political scientist Doug Muzzio,
who taught a course several years
ago alongside Mario Cuomo.
“Mario was transformational.
Andrew doesn’t seek to be transformational. He’s transactional.”
In a 1992 interview with The
Associated Press, Cuomo said his
greatest accomplishments included restructuring the state police
and courts, fixing highways and
passing the nation’s first seatbelt
law. He did not include another
legacy: an unprecedented expansion of the state prison system.
“Will I be remembered for all of
that? I don’t know,” he said at the
time. “What I would like them to
say, what I would like to have written on my tombstone: ‘He tried.’
That, I think, is the maximum we
can do.”

Immigrant advocates have cheered the licenses as a way to
integrate immigrants who must drive to work and shuttle children to school, though the cards will include a distinctive marking and are not considered valid federal identification. Critics
have questioned state officials’ ability to verify the identity of
foreign applicants, citing security concerns.
Applicants must submit proof of identity and state residency
and pass a written test to get a driving permit. Those who don’t
possess foreign government-issued identification on a list of
approved documents can be interviewed by a DMV investigator
to see if they qualify.
Immigrants must come back at a later date and pass a road test
to get the license, which will be marked with the words “federal limits apply.” Those who have licenses from other states are
not required to take the road test again, Gonzalez said.
Law enforcement officials have said the program will
improve road safety because more drivers will be tested and
insured. A DMV study of 23 years of crash data found unlicensed
drivers were more likely to cause a fatal collision.
Some immigrants who waited in line for hours Friday failed
the required written test and vowed to make an appointment to
return on another date to try again. About half of new driver’s
license applicants fail the written exam, Gonzalez said.
Celia Rayon, a 49-year-old warehouse worker from Anaheim,
left the crowded office in Stanton with her new permit in hand.
For nearly two decades, the Mexican immigrant has refrained
from driving, relying on rides from co-workers to get to her
“You can’t go out anywhere,” Rayon said, adding that she’d
like to drive to visit relatives in Georgia once she passes her
road test. “Now we’re going to feel more secure.”

More thought needed on college ratings system In economics, what goes
Other voices

Boston Herald


he U.S. Department of
Education’s own comments on
its draft of a document to
establish a federal government rating
system for colleges succinctly state
the problems — in our view insuperable — with the whole enterprise.
“Many of the factors that contribute
to a high quality postsecondary education are intangible,” not measured by
numerical data, or by available data.
“Among these are learning outcomes,” which “vary widely across
programs and institutions and are
communicated in many different
President Obama instructed the
department to develop a system that
would recognize colleges that excel at

enrolling students from all backgrounds, focus on maintaining affordability and succeed in helping all students graduate within a reasonable
amount of time. The department plans
to consider two-year and four-year
institutions separately, sorting each
group into the high-performing, the
low-performing and those in the middle.
Among the criteria on which the
department seeks public comment are
three on family income or socioeconomic status, two on cost of attendance, employment and earnings of
graduates, graduate school attendance
and loan repayment rates.
Under any system of numerical ratings institutions may try to make the

numbers look favorable. Graduation
rates too low? Ease up on grading
standards. (There’s been enough of
that already.)
Without details, the department said
it was “considering accounting for
differences in institutional characteristics such as degree and program mix
and selectivity.”
There’s the rub. Harvard, MIT, Holy
Cross, Hampshire, Salem State,
Smith, the Boston Museum School,
the Berklee College of Music and the
Massachusetts Maritime Academy are
hugely different. The handful of colleges like Harvard that can admit students without regard to need will present further important differences from
those that can’t.
All things considered, the department must devote more thought to the
task before it.

Letters to the editor
All transportation is subsidized
Mr. Oberg (letters, Dec. 27) correctly
asserts that a bike onboard Caltrain is
paid for by taxpayers, but so is every
other form of transportation. Cars depend on publicly-funded roads and
parking lots. Pedestrians depend on
publicly-funded sidewalks. Public
transportation depends on public funding to operate. 
When the full cost of the trip is considered, a bike onboard Caltrain
actually saves taxpayer dollars.
Caltrain’s farebox recovery is approximately 60 percent, with ticket revenue
covering only 60 percent of operating
costs. Muni’s farebox recovery is less
than 25 percent, Samtrans’ a scant 17
percent and VTA’s even lower at 13 percent. Taxpayers cover the rest.
It’s illustrative to compare the difference in subsidies for a passenger
traveling between San Mateo and San
Francisco under two scenarios: 1). A
bike onboard Caltrain, and 2). Public
transportation at both ends of the Caltrain trip. Under scenario 1, the bicycle
takes the space of one seat (not two, as
alleged by Mr. Oberg) and is subsidized
approximately $7.50. Under scenario
2, the bus rides are subsidized approximately $10, that is, $7 on Samtrans
plus $3 on Muni. By bringing a bike
onboard the train, the passenger saves
taxpayers $2.50 for every trip.

There’s no need to see
Laura Hillenbrand’s ‘Unbroken’
Laura Hillenbrand’s “Unbroken” is interesting enough, and indeed,
important. However, her entire book
would better have been written on a
single page. OK, a maximum of five
pages would have covered the whole
For example, Hillenbrand documented
every minute of the 47-day ordeal adrift
on a raft. The crew improvised methods
for capturing fish for food, which, of
course, was necessary for their survival. Once, a seagull was captured,
and the sharks, oh, the sharks!
The only “vital bit of information”
Hillenbrand left out of her far-too detailed account of that part of the saga
were the pet names of the sharks that
continuously circled the crews’ raft as
it drifted along, anticipating a meal,
while the crew hoped for their rescue —
which ultimately came, unfortunately
for the crew, by people on the opposing side of the war.
Laura Hillenbrand is indeed a marvelous chronicler, but I’ll never read
another book written by her — until
she learns to pare down about 80 percent of her stories.
As for seeing “Unbroken,” the movie
— ain’t no way.

The American public should prepare to
say goodbye to the Super Bowl as we
know it. The reason has to do with private screening and pay-per-view
Already the NFL, which is really an entertainment company, has started the
NFL network. These are games shown
on Thursday nights on a premium cable
channel. The directors of the NFL know
where the money is and how to get it.
Remember the super fights of the ’70s
like Ali and Frazier? They all ended up
like Pacquaio on private and pay-perview broadcasts. Obviously, the Super
Bowl is a one time event like a title
fight. Everywhere in America there are
Super Bowl parties amongst fans and
non-fans, and the NFL is very aware of
it. So not too far in the distant future
you may be reaching for that cable
router and choosing a channel to watch
the Super Bowl that you will be paying
for at the end of the month. Also, the
game of American football could end altogether as each generation of NFL
player gets bigger, stronger and faster,
making it so no helmet technology
will absorb the force of these helmetto-helmet collisions.

f you want a prediction about the uncertain future
of our economy, just ask a plumber.” That is what
my economics professor at Skyline Community
College in San Bruno said to my economics class just before
the markets crashed in 2007, marking the genesis of a worldwide financial crisis. I remember raising my hand in class,
attempting to sound smart by criticizing his statement. After
all, I watched CNN Money daily
and occasionally flipped through
the Financial Times. I knew it
could not have been that simple.
When my professor called on
me, I questioned his credibility,
telling him that every student in
the classroom, in my view, was
in a better position to give
advice on the economy than a
plumber, who likely did not have
as adequate of an education as
each of us. I felt proud that I — a

had successfully gutted the statement of a professor in such a public forum.
The professor grinned for a while. Then, he picked up a
piece of chalk and drew a large image of a curve on the
chalkboard. This represents the equilibrium curve in supply
and demand. He turned to me and replied, “It is simple.
Plumbers understand more than any of you the most fundamental lesson in economics — what goes up must come
down.” Students began to chuckle at his statement. After
finding the joke somewhat funny and disgusting, I further
researched the history of human capacity to predict economic crises, and it all made more sense to me.
Take for example a recent panel discussion in December
polled by Fortune Magazine, where the chairman of Standard
and Poor’s Index Committee, David Blitzer, was asked to use
one word to predict market changes in 2015. Believe it or
not, Blitzer’s response was more simplified than the statement made by my economics professor. “Mysterious,”
Blitzer uttered. To many, it is understandably alarming that an
economic source as reliable as the chairman of S&P’s Index
Committee could not provide a better prediction of the economic climate lying ahead of us. Making such a statement
requires a great deal of humility on his part. But, more importantly, it was honest. History shows that Blitzer’s prediction
was as accurate of any prediction that we have seen in recent
economic cycles.
The uncertainty around economic booms and busts has
existed since the birth of currency. Booms and busts are created by a number of factors ranging from excessive monetary easing and unrealistic market expectations by
investors, policymakers and consumers alike.
The irony is that in our constant attempt to predict the
market to better plan for the crashes that lie ahead, one
would think we were watching the same drama unfold over
and over again. The first scene displays a world where aggregate demand grows and businesses are hiring and thriving.
However, the law of impermanence eventually reminds us
that a boom only lasts for so long. As such, the imaginary
confidence in the market which experts refer to as a “mania”
comes crashing down faster than anyone could have accurately predicted. As you probably know, this is exactly what
transpired in 2008.
According to a 2009 study conducted by the Wharton
School of Business, most reputable economists not only
missed the 2008 financial crisis, but “positively denied it
would happen.” This was certainly not the first time. As
world-renowned philosopher George Santayana once said,
“Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat
In spite of our limited knowledge of how the economy
works, many of the legislators in our state and in
Washington, D.C. have decided that they can predict the
next boom or bust, and enact legislation accordingly. The
intent is honorable, but the unfortunate reality is that many
economic regulations place an undue burden on thriving
businesses that drive our nation’s economic engine, particularly small businesses.
History tells us the economy is fragile. Completely
deregulate it, and human greed will prompt a crash. Regulate
it too much, and panics and crashes will inevitably occur. In
my humble opinion, the best economic model is a system
that encourages businesses to prosper and incentivizes
prosperity at every socioeconomic level. Both of these
noble goals are achievable when we establish a system of
regulations that protect consumers without unduly burdening our job-creators.
The reality is that there are certain things for which we as
humans in our intellectual capacity will always be limited.
Many economists have embraced this harsh reality, and it is
about time our lawmakers do the same.

Stocks fall as manufacturing growth slows

Pot’s growing pains
By Gene Johnson

SEATTLE — A year into the nation’s experiment with legal,
taxed marijuana sales, Washington and Colorado find themselves wrestling not with the federal interference many feared,
but with competition from medical marijuana or even outright
black market sales.
In Washington, the black market has exploded since voters
legalized marijuana in 2012, with scores of legally dubious
medical dispensaries opening and some pot delivery services
brazenly advertising that they sell outside the legal system.
Licensed shops say taxes are so onerous that they can’t compete.
Colorado, which launched legal pot sales last New Year’s
Day, is facing a lawsuit from Nebraska and Oklahoma alleging
that they’re being overrun with pot from the state.
And the number of patients on Colorado’s medical marijuana registry went up, not down, since 2012, meaning more
marijuana users there can avoid paying the higher taxes that
recreational pot carries.
Officials in both states say they must do more to drive customers into the recreational stores. They’re looking at reining
in their medical systems and fixing the big tax differential
between medical and recreational weed without harming
And in some cases, they are considering cracking down on
the proliferating black market.
“How can you have two parallel systems, one that’s regulated, paying taxes, playing by the rules, and the other that’s not
doing any of those things?” said Rick Garza of the
Washington Liquor Control Board, which oversees recreational pot.
The difficulty of reconciling medical marijuana with taxed
recreational pot offers a cautionary tale for states that might
join Washington and Colorado in regulating the adult use of
the drug.
While legalization campaigns have focused on the myriad
ills of prohibition, including racial discrepancies in who gets
busted for weed, the promise of additional tax revenues in tight
budget times was in no small part of the appeal.

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks slumped
on Friday as signs of a slowdown in
manufacturing growth weighed on
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell
five points, or 0.3 percent, to 2,053 as
of 3:06 p.m. Eastern time. The Dow
Jones industrial average slipped 26
points, or 0.3 percent, to 17,797. The
Nasdaq composite dropped 15 points,
or 0.3 percent, to 4,720.
U.S. crude closed lower after moving
between losses and small gains. The
price dropped 58 cents to $52.69 a barrel in New York. Brent crude, the international standard, declined 91 cents to
The decline in oil prices helps consumers, who are paying less for gas,
but it hurts energy companies by lowering their revenues. The energy industry accounts for about 10 percent of
earnings of companies in the S&P 500

The fall in prices will also mean that
oil companies will rein in spending on
plants and equipment, said Anastasia
Amoroso, global market strategist for
J.P. Morgan Funds.
“The benefit of lower oil prices is
incremental to the damage that they
inflict on other parts of the economy,”
Amoroso said.
U.S. manufacturing grew at the slowest pace in six months in December,
weakened by declines in orders and
production. Yet growth remained
healthy, a sign manufacturing may
help drive the economy’s expansion
in 2015 as it did last year.
Management, a trade group of purchasing managers, said Friday that its manufacturing index fell to 55. 5 in
December from 58.7 in November.
Any reading above 50 signals expansion. November’s figure was just
below a three-year high reached in
The industrial sector was among the
biggest decliners in the S&P 500,
dropping 0.9 percent.

The euro retreated against the dollar.
The decline came after European
Central Bank President Mario Draghi
indicated that the bank could support a
government bond-buying program to
combat alarmingly low inflation in
the eurozone. The currency fell to
$1.2004, its lowest level against the
dollar in 4-1/2 years.
Investors have a number of concerns
about Europe as 2015 begins. Growth
is anemic in the region and an election
in Greece on Jan. 25 that could reignite the country’s debt crisis if an
anti-austerity party wins.

Fast-food resolution: Transform junk food image
By Candice Choi

NEW YORK — Fast-food chains have
a New Year’s resolution: Drop the junk.
As people express distaste for food
they think is overly processed,
McDonald’s, Taco Bell and other
chains are trying to shed their reputation for serving reheated meals that are
loaded with chemicals. That includes
rethinking the use of artificial preservatives and other ingredients customers
find objectionable.
“This demand for fresh and real is on
the rise,” said Greg Creed, CEO of Yum
Brands, which owns Taco Bell, KFC
and Pizza Hut.
During the presentation for analysts
and investors last month, Creed said
the company needs to be more transparent about ingredients and use fewer
Recasting fast-food as “fresh” and
“real” will be tricky, in large part
because it’s so universally regarded as
cheap and greasy. Another problem is
that terms like “fresh, ” “real” and
“healthy” have nebulous meanings,
making it hard for companies to pin
down how to approach transformation.
One way chains are looking to redefine themselves is by purging recipes
of chemicals people might find unappetizing. Already, packaged food and
beverage companies have reformulated
products to remove such ingredients,

even while standing by their safety.
PepsiCo, for instance, said it would
remove brominated vegetable oil from
Gatorade after a petition by a teenager
noted it isn’t approved for use in some
markets overseas.
And fast-food chains are indicating
they want to jump on the “clean label”
trend too:
• Last month, McDonald’s USA
President Mike Andres outlined
improvements the company is working on, including the simplification of
ingredient labels. Without providing
details, he said to expect some changes
in early 2015. The remarks came after
the company reported a 4.6 percent
decline in U.S. sales for November,
capping two years of struggling performance.
“Why do we need to have preservatives in our food?” Andres asked, noting McDonald’s restaurants go through
supplies quickly. “We probably don’t.”
• Subway, a privately held company
that does not disclose sales, started airing TV ads Thursday for its new chicken strips free of artificial preservatives
and flavors. After suffering bad publicity, the company said earlier last year it
would remove an ingredient from its
bread that an online petition noted was
also used in yoga mats. The ingredient,
azodicarbonamide, is approved by the
Food and Drug Administration and
widely used as a dough conditioner and
whitening agent.

• Chick-fil-A said in 2013 it would
remove high-fructose corn syrup from
buns and artificial dyes from its dressings. A couple months later, it said it
plans to serve only chicken raised
without antibiotics within five years.
• Carl’s Jr. last month introduced an
“all-natural” burger with no added hormones, antibiotics or steroids. “We are
obviously looking at other products
on our menu to see which ones can be
made all natural as well,” said Brad
Haley, the chain’s chief marketing officer.
It’s not clear how far fast-food companies will go in reformulating
recipes. But the nation’s biggest
chains are facing growing competition. In the latest quarter, customer visits to traditional fast-food hamburger
chains declined 3 percent from a year
ago, according to market researcher
NPD Group. Fast-casual chains —
which are seen as a step up from traditional fast-food — saw visits rise 8
Part of the appeal of fast-casual
chains is that they position themselves as being higher in quality.
Chipotle, which touts its use of organic ingredients and meat from animals
that were raised without antibiotics,
said sales at established locations
surged 19.8 percent in the most recent
quarter. And Panera vowed this summer
to remove artificial colors, flavors and
preservatives from its food by 2016.

U.S. sanctions North Korea over Sony cyberattack

HONOLULU — The United States
imposed fresh sanctions on North Korea
on Friday, targeting the North’s defense
industry and spy service in an attempt to
punish Pyongyang for a crippling
cyberattack against Sony. The sanctions marked the first public act of retribution by the U.S.
Although it was unclear how painful
the blow would be — North Korea
already is under tough U.S. sanctions —
the move signaled that that the U.S. was
not backing away from its insistence
that North Korea is responsible for the
attack against Sony. North Korea has
denied involvement, and some cybersecurity experts say it’s possible the
North wasn’t to blame.
“The order is not targeted at the people of North Korea, but rather is aimed at
the government of North Korea and its

activities that threaten the United States
and others,” President Barack Obama
wrote to a letter to House and Senate
None of the 10 individuals targeted by
the U.S. are being sanctioned because
they had any involvement in the cyberattack, Obama administration officials
said. Rather, the U.S. sanctions were
aimed at undermining North Korea’s
defense sector, further isolating the
government and creating a deterrent for
future cyberattacks, said the officials,
who briefed reporters on condition of
The White House warned this was just
the first part of the U.S. response to the
Sony incident. Officials said more individuals will be sanctioned in the future.
The stepped-up sanctions, authorized
by Obama, will also affect three North
Korean entities that are already subject
to U.S. sanctions. The U.S. has extensive sanctions in place against North

Korea over its nuclear program, but
these are the first sanctions punishing
Pyongyang for alleged cyberattacks.
The FBI has blamed North Korea for
the crippling cyberattack against Sony
Pictures Entertainment. North Korea has
denied involvement but has expressed
fury over a comedy film by Sony that
mocked North Korea’s leader. Sony
Pictures initially called off release of the
film, citing threats of terror attacks
against U.S. movie theaters. Obama
criticized Sony’s decision, and the
movie opened last month.
A nearly 10-hour shutdown of North
Korean websites last week prompted
widespread speculation that the U.S. had
launched a counterattack in retribution,
but the White House did not comment on
whether the U.S. was responsible. The
U.S. has vowed a proportional response
to the Sony incident but has warned its
response would “take place at a time and
in a manner of our choosing.”

Stanford beats Washington State in Pac-12 opener

seventh consecutive conference opener.
“We were excellent in executing our game
plan, particularly in the first 10 minutes of
the game,” Cougars coach Ernie Kent said.
“We had an opportunity to really put them
in a big hole, but we took some really quick
shots — out-of-rhythm shots — consequently we missed those shots. In the second half, they were the aggressors.”
Washington State has not won a road conference game in nearly two years and has
lost five straight to the Cardinal.
“We sort of let this one get away from us,”
Hawkinson said. “They put it together in
the second half.”

After missing all seven of his shots in the
first half, Randle scored Stanford’s first
seven points of the second half, including a
long range shot that tied the school record
(241) for 3-pointers.
“We picked it up but we’ll need to play
better,” Brown said. “The bench carried us
in the first half.”
Washington State missed its first six
shots of the second half and the Cardinal
opened with a 13-3 run to go up 40-27 with
14:42 to play.

STANFORD — Anthony Brown offered
several reasons for Stanford’s poor start and
he wasn’t entirely sold on any of them.
“Maybe it was the early starting time, I
don’t know,” Brown said of the Cardinal
missing nine of their first 10 shots. “It
could have been any number of things. It
was a sluggish start.”
Chasson Randle scored 17 of his 18
points in the second half and Stanford
opened Pac-12 play with a 71-56 victory

“Give them a lot of credit,” Cardinal
coach Johnny Dawkins said. “They came
out with a good game plan and played with a
lot of energy. We were fortunate to come
back in the first half and then win the second

OAKLAND — Stephen Curry had 32
points and 12 assists, Draymond Green got
his first career triple-double and the Golden
State Warriors rolled past the Toronto
Raptors 126-105 on Friday night in a
matchup of conference leaders.
Green finished with 16 points, 13 assists
and 11 rebounds, and three others scored in
double digits to help the NBA-best Warriors
(26-5) wear down the Raptors (24-9) in the
second half. Golden State started the third
quarter on a 23-5 run.
Toronto’s loss allowed Atlanta to move
into first in the East.
Greivis Vasquez scored 25 points, and
Kyle Lowry had 22 points and eight assists
for the Raptors, who lost consecutive road
games for the first time this season. Toronto
fell to 2-3 on its six-game trip, which ends
at Phoenix on Sunday.
Golden State kept up its blistering pace
without a true center as Andrew Bogut (right
knee) and backup Festus Ezeli (left ankle)
continue to recover from nagging injuries.
Coach Steve Kerr mixed and matched
smaller lineups — using Green down low
and sometimes nothing but forwards on the
floor — to push the pace and keep the
Raptors scrambling to defend shooters.
Golden State outshot Toronto 53.3 percent to 46.5 percent. The Warriors had nine
turnovers, while the Raptors had 17.
The Warriors went 5 for 6 from 3-point
range in the first quarter to take a 40-31 lead.
It was the most points Golden State has
scored and the most the Raptors have
allowed in the first quarter this season.
Even with the Warriors putting on an
offensive spectacle, Toronto never went
Lowry overcame early foul trouble and
Vasquez hit four 3s in the first half to help

The main question for the NFL’s weekend
of wild-card games is who will advance, of
course. The next big query: Who do you
Dallas? Not exactly a sure thing in the
playoffs — at least not since Jimmy
Johnson was around.
Detroit? Even less dependable; the Lions’
last postseason win came when Barry
Sanders was in the early portion of his Hall
of Fame career.
So when the Cowboys host the Lions on
Sunday in the final wild-card affair, it’s virtually impossible to predict what will happen.
“Little different this time of year,” says
first-year Lions coach Jim Caldwell, who
guided the Colts to the February 2010 Super
Bowl, a loss to New Orleans. “Obviously, I
think every game is tough and difficult I
think when you get in the playoffs when it’s
one and done if you lose. I think it’s a
heightened sense of intensity.”
Can Detroit handle it? Can Dallas?
“I think as much as anything else is to
take advantage of an opportunity to get better as a football team,” coach Jason Garrett
says. “Guys embraced the opportunity to
play. I think we saw that in the spirit and
demeanor we played with.”
They’ll need the same approach in the second season.
Also this weekend, it’s Arizona at
Carolina and Baltimore at Pittsburgh on
Saturday, Cincinnati at Indianapolis on
Sunday. Division champions New England,
Denver, Seattle and Green Bay have byes.

Detroit (11-5) at Dallas (12-4)
Dallas has the league’s leading rusher,
DeMarco Murray. Detroit has the best rush
defense in the league.
Think the ground game will be important?

Randy Johnson looks to be shoo-in for Hall of Fame
By Bob Baum

PHOENIX — At 6-foot-10, Randy Johnson
stood on the mound and looked down on batters,
an intimidating presence before he even threw
the ball.
And when he let it fly, his talent matched his
imposing stature.
With a menacing fastball and devastating
slider, “The Big Unit” had a career that rivaled
any other left-handed pitcher who played the

game. There is a long list of
statistics to back that up,
and he seems a shoo-in as a
first-ballot selection when
the new Hall of Fame class
is announced Tuesday.
His best seasons came
Diamondbacks, where he
Randy Johnson won four consecutive Cy
Young awards — he had a
total of five — and his only World Series cham-

pionship. Every start was a display of searing
“We knew that every fifth day we were going
to get one of the most competitive efforts in the
history of the game,” said Bob Brenly, his manager for most of his time in Arizona. “He
pitched every game like it was the most important of his life.”
Since his retirement in 2009, Johnson has
mostly detached himself from baseball, concentrating on his love of photography, traveling
the world, shooting pictures of his many rock

musician friends, meeting with soldiers on USO
tours to Kuwait, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay.
Johnson pitched 22 seasons with Montreal,
Seattle, Houston, Arizona, the New York
Yankees and San Francisco, compiling a 303166 career record.
He led his league in strikeouts nine times,
third-most in baseball history behind Walter
Johnson and Nolan Ryan. His average of 10.6
strikeouts per nine innings ranks first among
all pitchers.

Eagles’ coach wins front-office power play
By Rob Maaddi

PHILADELPHIA — Before winning his
first playoff game, Chip Kelly won a power
Kelly got control of the Philadelphia
Eagles’ player personnel department on
Friday after Howie Roseman was promoted
from general manager to executive vice
president of football operations.
The shake-up ends speculation about
Kelly’s future in Philadelphia following a
turbulent week that included the dismissal of
vice president of player personnel Tom
Gamble on Wednesday.
“It’s most important that we find players
that match what our coaches are seeking,”
owner Jeffrey Lurie said in a statement.
“This is part of an all-encompassing vision
that takes you from the scouting process all
the way to on-field performance. Howie,
Chip and (president) Don (Smolenski) are

all united in their desire
to win. Together, we
decided this approach
was the best course of
Philadelphia Eagles.”
Kelly has led the
Eagles to consecutive
10-6 seasons. He already
had final say on the 53Chip Kelly
man roster. Now he’ll
hire a new personnel executive who will
answer directly to him.
“I am very confident about where we are
headed as a team and as an organization,”
Kelly said. “I look forward to continue
working with Jeffrey and Howie as well as
the personnel department. This is not a oneman operation. It will truly take a team
effort to acquire and develop the best football players and then put the best team on
the field each week. It will take all of us
working together.”
The 39-year-old Roseman had been the

youngest GM in the NFL and held the position for five seasons. He began his career
with the Eagles as an unpaid intern in 2000.
“My No. 1 goal is to help bring a championship to this city and that will never
change,” Roseman said. “I believe this will
solidify the trust we have all placed in
Coach Kelly.”
The Eagles won the NFC East in 2013, a
year after finishing 4-12 under Andy Reid.
They lost a playoff game at home to New
Orleans. This year, they became only the
third team since 1990 to miss the playoffs
after a 9-3 start.
Lurie said after the season finale last
Sunday that Roseman would return as GM.
That was before Gamble was let go and
reports of a rift between Roseman and Kelly
began circulating.
“After carefully listening and reflecting
on the lengthy discussions that I had with
our senior team, I changed my mind (about
Roseman staying as GM),” Lurie said. “I
have a very good relationship with Chip

that continues to grow stronger and
stronger. When we spoke, he was thoughtful, thorough and professional. There were
no demands, no threats; quite the contrary,
he was passionate, engaged and articulated a
dynamic and clear vision on how this fully
integrated approach will work. We look forward to seeing it come to life over time.”
When Kelly left Oregon to join the Eagles
two years ago, he made it clear he wasn’t
interested in total control.
“I’ve heard questions that I want control
over this, control over that,” Kelly said on
Jan. 17, 2013. “That has never been an
issue, never is an issue for me. I’m a football coach. I’m not a general manager. I’m
not a salary-cap guy. I coach football. I need
people who can go out there and say, ‘Hey
this is what you want. These are the people.’
And it’s going to be a collaboration. We’re
all going to be on the same page. I’ve got
no delusions of saying that I want all these
different titles. I just want to coach football.”

Raiders interview Eagles’ offensive coordinator for coach

ALAMEDA — The Oakland Raiders interviewed Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur for their head coaching vacancy
on Friday.
A person with knowledge of the interview
said the Raiders met with Shurmur as they seek a
full-time coach. The person spoke on condition
of anonymity because the team is not releasing
details on interviews.
Shurmur has been offensive coordinator for

the Eagles the past two seasons. He was head
coach in Cleveland the previous two years
where he had a 9-23 record.
Shurmur has been in the NFL since 1999,
spending a decade as an offensive assistant in
Philadelphia and two years as offensive coordinator in St. Louis before taking the Cleveland
job in 2011.
Shurmur has experience working with young
quarterbacks, having worked as Donovan
McNabb’s position coach with the Eagles,
helping Sam Bradford win top offensive rookie

honors in 2010 in St. Louis and helping Nick
Foles lead the Eagles to the playoffs last season.
Philadelphia has had a top offense the past
two years with Shurmur, although head coach
Chip Kelly is the play-caller.
Shurmur also has ties to Oakland general
manager Reggie McKenzie. His uncle, Fritz,
was the longtime defensive coordinator in
Green Bay when McKenzie was in the Packers’
front office.
The Raiders are seeking a full-time coach after

firing Dennis Allen four games into last season.
Interim coach Tony Sparano is also a candidate
and will be interviewed for the job.
Oakland has had eight coaches since the start
of the 2003 season. The Raiders have not had a
winning record or playoff berth in that span as
the constant turnover has contributed to the
struggles on the field.
The Raiders also have interviewed Seattle
offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, Seahawks
coach Pete Carroll told SiriusXM NFL Radio earlier this week.

Several contenders for
Supercross series title
By John Marshall

Davi Millsaps went into the Monster
Energy Cup with low expectations, treating
it almost as a warm-up for the Supercross
Of course he wanted to win the race — all
riders do — but after spending 18 months
away from racing because of injuries and
running with a new team for the first time,
getting a feel for racing again was the main
Turned out to be some warm-up.
By taking the final moto and finishing
top-5 in the other two, Millsaps won the
Monster Energy Cup in October, earning a
$100,000 paycheck while giving his
Supercross season a huge kick-start.
“Honestly, it was a surprise to myself and
everyone else,” Millsaps said. “But it was a
really good race.”
The 17-race Supercross season kicks off
Saturday at Angels Stadium in Anaheim,
California. The schedule also includes a stop
at Levi’s Stadium, home of the San
Francisco 49ers, races in consecutive weekends in Atlanta and a switch from Qualcomm
Stadium to Petco Park in San Diego.
Once the first gate drops, Millsaps will be
one of the favorites in what could be the
most wide-open season to date.
Ryan Villopoto, the four-time defending
Supercross champion, retired from the series
and went to race in Europe to compete for the
FIM Motocross World Championship. Twotime champion James Stewart also will be
missing after being suspended 16 months
for a failed drug test.
That leaves two riders who have previously won Supercross titles: Ryan Dungey and
two-time champion Chad Reed.
Millsaps finished second in 2012 and
2013, and is healthy again, so he will likely have a say in the championship race. Trey
Canard is one of the series’ best young riders
and was in line for a $1 million payday
before wrecking in the final moto at the
Monster Energy Cup, so expect to see him
competing for a title.
Justin Barcia, Eli Tomac and Ken Roczen

also will be back and a new crop of talented
riders will be making the jump from the
250cc series, including Blake Baggett, who
will race for Yoshimura Suzuki with Stewart
“We say it every year, but I think this year
is going to be incredible,” said Dave Prater,
director of Supercross for AMA Supercross.
“It should be wide open.”
Millsaps put his name in the mix by winning the Monster Energy Cup, but it was a
long road back to get there.
After finishing second in the 2013
Supercross season, he underwent surgery to
fix a lingering knee injury, basically having
his leg strengthened to prevent needing
knee replacement surgery.
The 26-year-old rider from Orlando,
Florida, was out for nearly four months,
then broke his foot and dislocated his ankle.
Once Millsaps came back from that, he tore
up his other knee and needed surgery.
As he started riding again, his foot continued to hurt, so he had surgery to try fixing
it. Then another. And another.
“It was miserable. Just the fact that every
time I thought I fixed it, it came back,”
Millsaps said. “It’s definitely hard mentally
to get past it.”
The final surgery finally fixed Millsaps’
foot and he was able to start riding outdoors
in July. He also left Rockstar Energy Racing
for Monster Energy Kawasaki, essentially
filling the spot left by Villopoto’s departure.
Millsaps had less than a month with his
new team before the Monster Energy Cup
and missed part of that time because he got
sick, but meshed quickly.
The team was already a well-oiled machine
after winning four Supercross titles with
Villopoto and Millsaps made a seamless
transition, finishing third and fourth the
first two races before taking the final moto
and the big paycheck.
“Basically two years off a motorcycle,
jump on a brand new one and win your first
race, with everyone there really is really
impressive,” Prater said. “You can never

Miller could miss the
world championships
By Pat Graham

BEAVER CREEK, Colo. — At times, Bode
Miller’s surgically repaired back makes him
feel like he’s “balancing two pool balls on top
of each other.”
Not exactly a comforting feeling when he’s
speeding down the mountain. Miller remains
unsure if the herniated disk he had fixed nearly
seven weeks ago will recover in time to allow
him to race at the world championships in
Beaver Creek, Colorado, next month.
At this point, the 37-year-old Miller is
unsure when he races again. Simply depends on
how quickly his back responds to treatment and
“But if it’s possible, I’m probably one of the
people able to pull it off,” said the skier from
Franconia, New Hampshire, who’s captured six
Olympic medals, two World Cup overall titles
and had countless wipeouts with his go-forbroke approach. “Whether everything goes
right, it’s a matter of luck and good fortune and
being smart about it.”
Miller’s running out of time, though, with
world championships right around the corner.
The first men’s race is the super-G on Feb. 4.
There have been plenty of encouraging
signs, like when he freeskied in Park City,

Utah, a few weeks ago and actually felt good.
“Took it real easy there, kind of worked into
it,” he said.
But then things like this give him pause for
concern: On New Year’s Day, Miller was squeezing in some giant slalom training on the new
women’s Raptor Course when he had to stop
because of his back. And while he woke up sore,
he went back out Friday and got in some superG runs, skiing “hard and fast,” he said.
“The disk is probably out of the woods for
the most part, in terms of a real serious chance
of me re-rupturing it,” said Miller. “But if
everything locks down, you can’t ski.”
For the moment, Miller plans to keep training and be on hand for a downhill training session in Wengen, Switzerland, on Jan. 13. If his
back responds favorably, he will race that
And should training not go well, Miller will
postpone things a week, see where things
stand in Kitzbuehel, Austria.
“If I don’t have a sense everything is basically full steam, I’m not going to run,” Miller
said. “I’m going to have to make a hard decision.”
His worst-case scenario is arriving at Beaver
Creek for worlds and seeing how he feels. It’s a
tricky course he knows intimately, winning
four of his 33 World Cup races at this venue.

Doping rules getting more strict STANFORD
By Eddie Pells

Beginning this year, athletes in Olympic
sports who work with trainers, coaches or
agents who have been banned for doping will
be in jeopardy of receiving a ban, as well.
The most noteworthy of the new rules in the
World Anti-Doping Agency’s 2015 code is a
prohibition from working with people who
have been sanctioned themselves. Among
those currently banned is Lance Armstrong’s
one-time trainer, Michele Ferrari. Since he
was banned, Ferrari has been photographed
meeting with members of other cycling
Until the new code went into effect, there
was no specific penalty for an athlete who
dealt with banned coaches or trainers.
Beginning this year, the U.S. Anti-Doping
Agency plans to give athletes a warning if
they’re dealing with a banned person. After
that, the athlete could be sanctioned.
“These important changes advance the poli-

Johnson had six seasons of at
least 300 strikeouts, tied with Ryan
for the most ever.
A hard-throwing but extremely
wild pitcher as a youngster at USC
and in his early professional years,
Johnson worked with Ryan and
pitching coach Tom House in 1992
to fix his mechanics. And he developed remarkable control.
“He’s out of the mold physically
when it comes to a major league
pitcher,” Brenly said. “For him to
go from where he was at the beginning of his career in Montreal when
he was just a wild, hard thrower to
where he finished his career — this
guy would regularly strike out 300
more guys than he walked in a season.”
That’s a slight exaggeration,
although Johnson did accomplish
it once. In 2001, he fanned a careerhigh 372 and walked 71. It was the
greatest season in Johnson’s
career, largely because of the way it
In the seventh game of a World
Series considered by many to be the
best ever played, with the New York
Yankees leading 2-1, Johnson
jogged down to the bullpen to thunderous cheers from the home crowd.
When he emerged from the bullpen
to pitch with two outs in the eighth
inning, the reaction was even louder.
“For all the great moments there
were in that World Series,” Brenly
said, “people continuously tell me
that when Randy ran down to the
bullpen, then when the door opened
and he came out of it, that was the
seminal moment in that World

rights, health and fair competition,” USADA
CEO Travis Tygart said. “Now, the challenge is
to ensure all countries and sports are fully
implementing this gold-standard policy to
ensure the real winners win.”
In Italy, where doping is a crime, sports
officials are urging law enforcement to get
more involved in preventing Ferrari from
associating with riders.
Last month, investigators sent a file to
Italy’s Olympic committee detailing allegations of Ferrari’s continued influence on
In 2006, Ferrari was cleared of criminal
charges of distributing banned products to athletes. But he remains barred for life by the
Italian Cycling Federation and was also
banned for life by USADA in 2012.
Another key rules change taking effect this
year increases the possible penalty for a firsttime doping violation from two to four years.
That change came after athletes pushed for the
increased penalty for intentional cheaters.

opposing teams took the day off
when Johnson pitched. The rest of
the lineup knew they were in for a
“It’s almost like you’re going
into a game with a 1-0 lead because
of the psychological advantage he
gave to the team,” teammate Luis
Gonzalez said. “... He thrived on
intimidating other teams.”
Johnson talked about his
approach to baseball in an interview with reporters when he
appeared at Chase Field last May for
the commemoration of the 10th
anniversary of his perfect game.
“I did what worked for me,” he
said. “Doesn’t mean it was the right
way — it just worked for me.
Whether it was working out the way
I worked out, my regimen, my offseason training, my demeanor on
game day, my demeanor working up
to game day, it worked for me.”
In 2001, he became the third
pitcher to strike out 20 in nine
innings in a 4-3, 11-inning victory
over Cincinnati. In 2002 he won
the pitching version of the triple
crown, leading the National League
in wins, strikeouts and ERA.
And in 2004, at the age of 40, he
became the oldest person to throw a
perfect game, a performance
against Atlanta that still can be
viewed on YouTube.
Johnson has said he’s not the
same intense person he was back
then. He stepped away from baseball for a long time, enjoying the
easing of the internal pressure he
always put on himself.
“I didn’t have any problems retiring because I felt like I did what I
wanted to do,” he said in May. “I
deserved to walk away.”

New diet guidelines might
reflect environmental cost
By Mary Clare Jalonick

WASHINGTON — For years, the government has been issuing guidelines about
healthy eating choices. Now, a panel that
advises the Agriculture Department is ready to
recommend that you be told not only what
foods are better for your own health, but for
the environment as well.
That means that when the latest version of
the government’s dietary guidelines comes
out, it may push even harder than it has in
recent years for people to choose more fruits,
vegetables, nuts, whole grains and other
plant-based foods — at the expense of meat.
The beef and agriculture industries are crying foul, saying an environmental agenda has
no place in what has always been a practical
blueprint for a healthy lifestyle.
The advisory panel has been discussing the
idea of sustainability in public meetings,
indicating that its recommendations, expected early this year, may address the environment. A draft recommendation circulated last
month said a sustainable diet helps ensure
food access for both the current population
and future generations.
A dietary pattern higher in plant-based
foods and lower in animal-based foods is
“more health promoting and is associated

with lesser environmental impact than is the
current average U.S. diet,” the draft said.
That appears to take at least partial aim at
the beef industry. A study by the journal
Proceedings of the National Academy of
Sciences last year said raising beef for the
American dinner table is more harmful to the
environment than other meat industries such
as pork and chicken.
The study said that compared with other
popular animal proteins, beef produces more
heat-trapping gases per calorie, puts out more
water-polluting nitrogen, takes more water for
irrigation and uses more land.
As the advisory committee has discussed
the idea, doctors and academics on the panel
have framed sustainability in terms of conserving food resources and also what are the
healthiest foods. There is “compatibility and
overlap” between what’s good for health and
good for the environment, the panel says.
Once the recommendations are made, the
Agriculture and Health and Human Services
departments will craft the final dietary guidelines, expected about a year from now.
Published every five years, the guidelines are
the basis for USDA’s “My Plate” icon that
replaced the well-known food pyramid in
2010 and is designed to help Americans with
healthy eating. Guidelines will also be integrated into school lunch meal patterns and
other federal eating programs.


Euro sinks after ECB chief
Draghi gives stimulus hint

LONDON — The euro slid to a 4-1/2 year
low against the dollar on Friday after the
head of the European Central Bank hinted at
plans to fight alarmingly low inflation
across Europe.
In an interview with Germany’s financial
daily Handelsblatt, Mario Draghi, the
ECB’s president, said that the bank is more
at risk of failing to keep prices stable than
it was just six months ago.
“We have to avoid too-high inflation and
we have to avoid too-low inflation as well,”
Draghi said. “We are making technical
preparations to alter the size, pace and composition of our measures in early 2015,
should it become necessary to further
address risks of a too prolonged period of
low inflation.”
Traders sold euros and bought U.S. dollars
in response, driving the euro down 0.7 percent to $1.201 as of 3:37 p.m. Eastern time
Friday. The euro hasn’t traded below $1.20
since June 2010. Back then, Europe’s financial markets were reeling as Greece, Ireland
and other countries struggled under their
For many in the markets, Draghi’s comments were a clear hint that the bank stands
ready to launch a full-blown bond-buying
program similar to those undertaken by
other central banks, such as the U.S. Federal

Iran, six powers move
closer to nuke talks deal
VIENNA — Iran and the United States
have tentatively agreed on a formula that
Washington hopes will reduce Tehran’s ability to make nuclear arms by committing it
to ship to Russia much of the material needed for such weapons, diplomats say.
In another sign of progress, the two
diplomats told The Associated Press that
negotiators at the December round of
nuclear talks drew up for the first time a catalog outlining areas of potential accord and
differing approaches to remaining disputes.
The diplomats said differences still dominate ahead of the next round of Iran-six
power talks on Jan. 15 in Geneva. But they
suggested that even agreement to create a todo list would have been difficult previously
because of wide gaps between the sides.
Iran denies it wants nuclear arms, but it is
negotiating with the U.S., Russia, China,
Britain, France and Germany on cuts to its
atomic program in hope of ending crippling
sanctions. The talks have been extended
twice due to stubborn disagreements.
The main conflict is over uranium enrichment, which can create both reactor fuel and

Reserve and the Bank of England. Many
experts think the ECB could make the
announcement at its next monetary policy
meeting on January 22.
Although the ECB has cut interest rates to
record lows and backed the purchase of some
private-sector bonds, it has refrained from a
full-scale bond-buying program — socalled quantitative easing, or QE.
The euro has been in retreat for months on
the back of expectations that the ECB will
back a further stimulus as traders anticipate
more of the currency in circulation.
While anemic levels of economic growth
across the eurozone are a major source of
concern for policymakers at the ECB, it is
too-low inflation that’s prompting the
speculation of further action.
Inflation in what is now the 19-country
eurozone — Lithuania adopted the euro on
Thursday — stands at 0.3 percent, far below
the ECB’s annual target of price increases
just below 2 percent.
The worry is that weak inflation turns
into a widespread drop in prices. Although
that might sound good in principle, deflation can choke the life out of an economy if
consumers put off purchases in the hope of
future bargains, and companies struggle to
remain profitable. Deflation can prove difficult to reverse, as evidenced by Japan’s
economic stagnation over the past two
the fissile core of nuclear arms. In seeking
to reduce Iran’s bomb-making ability, the
U.S. has proposed that Tehran export much
of its stockpile of enriched uranium —
something the Islamic Republic has long
said it would not do.
The diplomats said both sides in the talks
are still arguing about how much of an
enriched uranium stockpile to leave Iran. It
now has enough for several bombs, and
Washington wants substantial cuts below
that level.
Issues that still need agreement, they
said, include the size of Iran’s future enrichment output.

Before creating new year’s resolutions
and going through the year, I intend to
keep in mind a few things.
In the past years, I have always created a
list of resolutions I intend to try to follow
or accomplish. Over the month of January,
I am enthusiastic about
these resolutions; I tell
myself every year that I
will follow through with
my list, but that enthusiasm eventually fades and
I forget about this list
by the end of the month.
This year, instead of
setting too big and too
broad goals for myself, I intend to have
realistic and specific goals. For example,
instead of a resolution like, I will maintain
a healthy lifestyle through the year, I plan
on having more resolutions aimed toward
specifically following what I want to
accomplish like exercise twice a week.
Another thing that I intend to do is enjoy
the year by spending as much time with the
people I love and doing the things I love
and want to do. We have 365 days (now,
362 and counting) to make the most out of
the year.
I always hear people constantly say, I
can’t wait for this or that. But once they
get to that moment, they have other things
they can’t wait for and therefore they can’t
enjoy what is currently happening. Instead
of focusing on the future, this year, I want
to make the most out of what’s happening
in that moment.
Even though sometimes we don’t have a
choice on who to spend the day with and
how we spend the day, we do have the
choice on our outlook, attitude and the

‘Mr. Turner’ is Mike Leigh’s look at Victorian-era artist Joseph Mallor William Turner. The movie focuses on Turner’s last few decades.

‘Mr. Turner’ is Mike
Leigh’s masterpiece
By Jake Coyle

Survey countless films about artistic
geniuses and you will not encounter one
quite like Mike Leigh’s J.M.W. Turner, as
played by Timothy Spall.
Grunting is practically his choice mode of
expression. He spits on his canvases and
grubbily wields his brushes — and he’s not
much more elegant in his female relationships or when trying to carry a tune. He
squints like a mole to such a degree that you
feel at any moment he could twitch his nose
and burrow a hole into the ground.
He’s not a man from whom sublimity
would seem to emanate, and yet it does.
Joseph Mallor William Turner (1775-1851)

churned out some of the most powerfully
visceral paintings of light and tumult, of
stormy seascapes and Victorian smokestacks. But between Turner the man and
Turner the artist, the distance is as vast as
the ocean.
And that is much of the point of the spectacular “Mr. Turner.” Its mission isn’t to
place Turner on a pretentious pedestal of
genius, where so many of our depictions of
brilliant talents reside, but to treat him as a
craftsman, a laborer going about, as Leigh
has said, “a job of work.”
“Mr. Turner, ” which concentrates on
Turner’s last few decades, is punctuated,
courtesy of cinematographer Dick Pope, by
beautiful landscapes that often vividly
recreate Turner’s own compositions. But

they aren’t showy and instead crop up in
Turner’s days as he, pointing an umbrella
with each pace, strides the English seaside moments of awe after which “Mr. Turner,” a
sturdy film as equally sure of itself as its
subject, gets back to work.
Leigh follows Turner back and forth
between his home in London and his
sojourns to the coast (mostly Margate in
the southeast of England), and between
work and the largely unwelcome intrusions
of family, society and business. When his
estranged mistress (Ruth Sheen) barges in
with one of their daughters and a new granddaughter, Turner grumbles, “Most preoccupied.”

Donna Douglas, ‘Elly Mae Clampett’ dies at 82
By Frazier Moore

NEW YORK — Donna Douglas, who
played the buxom tomboy Elly May
Clampett on the hit 1960s sitcom “The
Beverly Hillbillies,” has died.
Her niece says Douglas died Thursday in
Baton Rouge, Louisiana, near her hometown of Zachary. The cause of death was
pancreatic cancer, Charlene Smith said.
Douglas was 82.
She was best known for her role in “The
Beverly Hillbillies,” the CBS comedy about
a backwoods Ozark family who moved to

Beverly Hills after striking it rich from oil discovered on their land.
The series, which ran
from 1962 to 1971, also
starred the late Buddy
Ebsen and Irene Ryan as
well as Max Baer Jr., who
turns 77 on Sunday.
Donna Douglas As Elly May, she
unaware of her status as a bumpkin blond
bombshell. Typically she was clad in a snug
flannel shirt and tight jeans cinched with a
rope belt, and she seemed to prefer her critters to any beau.

Chosen from more than 500 other actresses, Douglas said she felt at ease playing the
role because, like her character, she grew up
a poor Southern tomboy. Her childhood in
Pride, Louisiana, came in handy when she
was asked during her audition to milk a
“I had milked cows before,” she recalled
in a 2009 interview with The Associated
Press. “I figured they were equipped the
same, so I just went on over and did it.”
The show was not only assailed by critics, but by the network president who put it
on the air: “I HATED it,” Michael Dann confided much later. “After screening the pilot,
I don’t think I ever watched another seg-

The public, however, felt quite the opposite: It ran for nine seasons, often in the
Top 10. In their own way, the Clampetts
were a forerunner of the ‘60s counterculture.
It wasn’t much of a stretch for Douglas to
fit into the troupe, said her cousin, Charlene
“She was always happy, and she really
loved animals — just like her character on
‘The Beverly Hillbillies.’ She was a wonderful lady, a very good Christian lady.”
Indeed, when Douglas gave her autograph,
she included a biblical verse (“Trust in the
Lord with all your heart...”), according to
New Orleans TV station WAFB.

the wall in 1989, which took place during
the term of the 41st president. The installation dramatically captures one event in the
career of a man who served his country in
roles that also included World War II pilot,
congressman, ambassador to the United

of President George H.W. Bush, to support
democracy, promote civic education and
increase historical understanding of our
national experience. Permanent exhibits
convey the essence of George Bush’s life and
public service career and illustrate historical
events of this period in American history.
The museum holds both a replica of the Oval

The museum draws visitors from all over
the world, who come to learn both about the
life of this former president and about the
country he so devotedly served. John

Winder, a volunteer at the Presidential
Library since 1998, said, “Volunteering at
the George Bush Presidential Library is a
great honor. The excitement I see on the
faces of first-time visitors reminds me that
we have one of the greatest systems of government in the world. One visitor comes to
mind. A firefighter from Venezuela came to
the library after attending a fire training
school at Texas A&M University. He spoke
very little English. As he entered, he
stopped, looked around, put hands over his
heart and exclaimed, “Bush! Bush!”

Allen Leech plays Tom Branson on ‘Downton Abbey.’

Allen Leech finds a happy
home at ’Downton Abbey’
By Lynn Elber

BEVERLY HILLS — “Downton Abbey” star
Allen Leech has a winning way with accents.
The Irish-born actor employs his native
brogue in portraying Tom Branson, the former chauffeur who’s become a landed-family
insider on the PBS series that returns Sunday
for its fifth season. But moviegoers hear a
Scotch lilt from Leech’s World War II code
breaker in “The Imitation Game.”
And, for an audience of one, Leech seals his
adroitness with an impish take on the posh
English tones of “Downton Abbey” creator
and writer Julian Fellowes.
When a nanny was discovered mistreating
Tom’s toddler daughter last season, Leech
recalls, he asked Fellowes if Tom could punish
the wayward servant.
“I don’t think another death on our hands is
what we need,” Leech said, mimicking
Fellowes — who, despite asking, has yet to
hear the canny impression.
“As soon as he fires me,” Leech said, smiling.
There appears little danger of that. Leech’s
Tom has become an integral part of Lord
Grantham’s estate and the series. Tom may
lack the elan of the late, lamented Matthew,
but his solid warmth, coupled with Leech’s
helpful handsomeness, make him a worthy
Downton leading man.
During a promotional visit here for
“Downton Abbey,” Leech was careful to avoid

giving away details of the latest season —
which, to the frustration of some viewers,
comes to America after it airs in the U.K. —
but he was willing to revisit past threads that
are woven in for his character.
Tom, a single father since the death several
years before of his high-born wife, is increasingly uneasy in the embrace, however kind,
of his wealthy in-laws. Fanning his discontent: an attractive woman who wants him to
return to his onetime radicalism.
Teacher-firebrand Sarah Bunting, played by
Daisy Lewis, “certainly has reignited his passion for political life but also for change,”
Leech said. That has Tom seriously mulling a
different life in America for him and his daughter.
“Bear in mind, the family aren’t enamored
of him going anywhere, which is a long way
from season two,” he said, laughing over
Tom’s rocky path in wooing Lady Sybil.
Leech’s career has moved along nicely
since he found, as a child appearing in school
plays, that acting allowed him to exercise his
The real epiphany came at age 11, when he
played the Cowardly Lion in a stage production of “The Wizard of Oz” and bumped into a
schoolmate’s father. The man mentioned that
acting was his full-time job.
Immersing himself in the magic of “Oz,” he
said, “really invigorated me ... and then happening to meet someone who was a professional at this. It just completely changed my
outlook on what I wanted to do.”

The father-son relationship is as tender as
any, without even a brush stroke of sentimentality. They’re of a piece, both stout
wheezers. “My little lad,” says the father as
he expires. There’s sweetness, too, in the
romance that subtly develops between
Turner and his Margate landlady, Sophia
Booth (Marion Bailey), who became
Turner’s last mistress. Turner’s appetites are
great. In one scene - an old tale about the
artist - he straps himself to the mast of a
ship to experience a gale up close.
The business of work also fills Turner’s
days. From a peephole, he grimaces at customers who visit his studio. At the Royal
Academy, he contentedly and competitively
parades among fellow artists, perusing their
works: “`Tis a splendid cornucopia,” he

judges, an apt description of “Mr. Turner” as
Leigh has an obvious fondness for the
period detail. Most memorable are Turner’s
encounters with the Victorian art critic John
Ruskin. Joshua McGuire plays him as a lisping, intellectual fop, a historical inaccuracy
but no matter. He’s a perfectly conceived
opposite to Turner, whose high-minded
salon conversation the artist responds to
with unhappy grunts and coarse jokes.
“Mr. Turner” has long been a passion for
Leigh, who typically discovers his films
through improvisation and rehearsal. Here
he’s on a more direct line, and there’s no
doubt it’s his masterpiece.
Clearly, it wouldn’t work without a
tremendous performance from Spall, a fine
character actor finally given the stage.
Spall’s Turner is an enigma: a brutish, primal force capable of glory. “Mr. Turner,”
thankfully, never seeks to resolve the discord (evoked by Gary Yershon’s atonal
score). Instead, “Mr. Turner” is a maelstrom
of life and art.
“Mr. Turner,” a Sony Pictures Classics
release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion

day will be Monday, Jan. 5. Hophan comes
to Millbrae with seven years of experience
as a 7-12 grade principal.
“It really is an honor to have the position,” Hophan said. “The staff is just fantastic. I’ve been preparing all my life for what
it is to be a principal and schools are very
resilient. I’m just interested in taking what
has worked well and just moving forward.”
Superintendent Linda Luna is excited
about the hire.
“Let us come together as a caring community on behalf of our Millbrae students,”
Superintendent Linda Luna wrote in a letter
to the Taylor community. “We are entering a
new beginning. Dream big for our Taylor
students and believe that all things are possible. Please join me in welcoming Hophan

related to a heart condition.
The council has 30 days to fill the vacancy by either appointing a replacement
through either public or closed session
interviews or holding a special election.
Naming Mack would give the council the
option of coinciding the special election
with a standard election day.
Although Mack has already served 12

in Vancouver.
“From my short time with Principal
Hophan, I am impressed with his work
ethic, his deep commitment to building
relationships and making decisions on
behalf of what is best for students,” Luna
wrote in an email. “His experiences leading
a school in grades 7-12 brings to Millbrae
an articulation for high school and college
and career readiness.”
The district has completed a background
check through an investigative agency and
has seen Hophan in four interview settings
prior to his being appointed as principal,
according to Luna.
Parents can meet with Hophan at the regularly scheduled Principal’s Coffee on 8:30
a.m. Friday, Jan. 9 at the school’s library at
850 Taylor Blvd. in Millbrae.

“Many of us are looking forward to some

stability and continuity,” she wrote in an
email. “After 20 years, I have seen several
changes in leadership in Millbrae, some
good and some not so good. But, I am happy
to start 2015 with lots of hope for what the
future holds for us at Taylor. The lack of consistent leadership has definitely taken its
toll on the staff and community over the
past year, but I am looking forward to a new
energy and optimistic for the changes.”

the improvements are also of financial
value to Foster City as windsurfers and kiteboarders are drawn to the area.
“It’s just a real versatile location for people that travel from all over that utilize that
site to kiteboard. So there is economic
value that’s associated with the site,” Liu
said. “We really genuinely wanted to
respond to the community and address the
need out there.”
Councilman Gary Pollard agreed adding
revamping the destination spot helps keep
Foster City on the map.
“People were using it from all over the
world regardless of what it looked like and
now that we realize how valuable it is,
we’ve invested money in it to make it a
world-class park,” Pollard said. “I think it

was money well spent to keep the park system that our residents have come to enjoy at
its highest level.”
While the ribbon cutting ceremony is the
culmination of the work completed at the
East Third Avenue Park, Foster City is also
in the midst of creating two new additions
known as Werder and Destination parks.
Both along the Bayfront, Liu said the city
anticipates opening the new parks in May
or June of 2015.
“In our minds, we kind of look at it as a
package of three parks that really enhance
access to the Bay Trail,” Liu said. “We’re all
about facilitating recreational access, that’s
the goal.”
The city’s commitment to encouraging
visitors to frequent the Bay Trail helped land
it a $60,000 grant from the National Fish
and Wildlife Foundation for improvements
to the kiteboarding park. Another
$175,602 was awarded by the nonprofit the
Smart Family Foundation and the remaining
$625,000 came from the city, Liu said.

Browning said she’s thrilled the city was
responsive in addressing the windsurfing
and kiteboarding community’s concerns and
that everyone will have the opportunity for
a more enjoyable experience at the park.

her to run for re-election because it wouldn’t
be consecutive terms. However, she has
agreed not to do so.
“She’s had her fill. She’s left her mark.
She’s been there and there’s no temptation,”
he said.
Lim said he believes San Mateo voters
should have a say in who their councilmembers are but doesn’t think that person
should be given the advantage of being an
appointed incumbent come election time.
“If we appoint a person who then runs for
the spot in November, the person would
have a leg up on all the other candidates ...
and to me that seems fundamentally unfair,”
Lim said in a prepared statement.
Deputy Mayor Jack Matthews disagrees

that an advantage is a given. He pointed to
Fred Hansson, the former planning commissioner named to the San Mateo council and
former appointed San Carlos councilwoman
Karen Clapper, who both lost reelection
“So while it’s certainly a help, it’s not a
guarantee they’re going to be elected,”
Matthews said.

District Board of Trustees announced out of a
closed session meeting in October 2014
that she would not be returning, Luna said.
Prior to that, interim administrator Maggie
O’Reilly served as interim principal when
former principal Lesley Martin left the job.
Some felt Martin was intimidated by Luna
and the school board into resigning.
Teachers and parents expressed concern that
the administration was making for a poor
work environment, with the Millbrae
Education Association and Classified
School Employees Association going so far
as to take a no confidence vote in Luna. The
district did say it is making an effort to work
more with teachers and staff and recently
sent out a letter highlighting areas it’s
looking to improve such as providing more
clarity about how the board meetings work,
more training for trustees, increased board
visibility, implementation of a climate survey and other strategies.
Employees are hopeful about the new
principal being instated, including Julie
Nestor, a Taylor physical education and
health teacher.

“This is such an important decision, I’m
not willing to just pull a name out of a hat,”

Goethals said the job is hard, time-consuming and not “honorary.” He wants a candidate ready to roll up their sleeves and get

regional boards which he believes is not
being done well enough currently.
