Tenants face huge rent hike


Residents at San Mateo complex complain that
housing crisis is starting to displace middle class
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

While the housing crisis has put a


spotlight on the displacement of the
working poor in the area, many middle-income professionals are starting
to see their rents climb beyond what
they can afford.
Tenants in a 15-unit apartment complex in downtown San Mateo are being
hit with rent increases ranging from

$900 to $1,100 a month.


Some wrote letters to the City
Council decrying the huge rent
increase saying it will displace many
median-income professionals or
retirees who have lived there for more
than a decade.
The landlords, however, note that
the rents have not been raised in more
than 10 years and that they are simply
going up to market rates.
The two-bedroom units have been

renting in the $1,900 range but will


climb up to $2,850 a month starting in
October.
The property is owned by a trust in
the name of Ted and Victor Baiz.
As trustees, my brother and myself
owe a fiduciary duty to that trust,
Victor Baiz said.
Many circumstances over the years,
including illnesses in the family, kept

The proposed redevelopment of

employees to Foster City could
clear a major administrative hurdle
Thursday as officials consider
whether the projects environmental and traffic impacts can be adequately mitigated.

sequencing technology firm.
The Foster City Planning
Commission will decide Thursday

whether to allow the project to


proceed to the City Council for
consideration by approving the
final environmental impact report
and suggested measures to mitigate an estimated 631 daily vehicle trips.
As the economy has improved,
there is certainly more traffic on
the roads than weve seen in the
past and the need for more mitigation to help reduce some of the
single occupancy vehicles in and
around Foster City, said

County supports headlands restoration


Pedro Point Headlands properties may be transferred to county
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The San Mateo County Board of


Supervisors approved a $350,000 expenditure in Measure A funds to support the
Pacifica Land Trusts restoration project of
the Pedro Point Headlands.
The money will go toward building trails,
planting native species and erosion control
for the 247-acre promontory located
between Montara and Pacifica along the
coast.
The land is owned by the California
Coastal Conservancy and the city of
Pacifica but both agencies intend to transfer
the Pedro Point Headlands parcels to the
county at no cost later this year, according
to a staff report by Parks Director Marlene
Finley to the board, which approved the
funding agreement at its Tuesday meeting.
A future section of the Coastal Trail
through Pedro Point will connect Pacifica to
the Devils Slide Trail, according to
Finleys report.
The nonprofit Pacifica Land Trust has
been instrumental in keeping the parcels
free from development and off-highway
vehicles such as motorcycles since 1993,
according to Finleys report.

Man killed in motorcycle

Jorge Becerril, 28, died after his motorcycle collided with a vehicle on State Route 92
west of Clawiter Road in Hayward around
7:50 a.m., according to the CHP.
Becerril was riding his 2002 Honda

Although motorcycles are rarely seen in
the area these days, the scars theyve left
behind through the years remain, Finley
said.
Part of the effort will go toward stopping
sediment from going into San Pedro Creek,
a habitat for steelhead trout and red-legged
frogs.
The group was awarded a $1.1 million
state grant to curtail continuing erosion in
the area.
The Measure A funds will go toward a project to replace the existing unsustainable
footpaths with well-designed hiking trails
which is not supported by the state grant.
Much of the work will be done by volunteers, Finley said Wednesday.
Of the $350, 000, $100, 000 will go
toward supporting the volunteers who will
undertake all aspects of the habitat restoration including plant salvage; plant propagation; installing and maintenance.
Another $215,000 will go toward the support of trail building, including layout;

clearing and excavation; compaction; grading; erosion control; revegetation; and


maintenance.
The remaining $35,000 will go toward
administrative costs for the Pacifica Land
Trust.
The effort will go toward constructing
about 1.5 miles of safe new trails for recreational purposes, according to Finleys
report.
The countys effort in the Pacifica Land
Trusts restoration project will improve
habitat, water quality and restore recreational opportunities, Finley said.
It has been working to restore Pedro Point
for 25 years, said Dinah Verby, with the
Pacifica Land Trust.
The group saved the parcels from residential development and has been working to
restore decades worth of steep gullys created
by off-road dirt bike riders that have led to
the occasional slide onto Highway 101,
Verby said.
The final restoration will create sustainable walking trails for the whole public to

Dead humpback towed back out to sea


BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

A dead humpback whale found on a


Pacifica beach this weekend has been
towed back out to sea, police said
Wednesday.
The 38-foot juvenile whale was
reported on Esplanade Beach below
Esplanade Avenue around 6:30 a.m.
Sunday, according to police.
The city hired a company on Tuesday
to tow the whale about 25 miles out to
sea, which should ensure it does not
return to shore, Pacifica police Capt.

Joe Spanheimer said. Scientists with


the Marin Headlands-based Marine
Mammal Center and the California
Academy of Sciences examined the
whale on Sunday and found evidence
that it had been hit by a passing ship.
A necropsy performed on the decomposing whale found internal hemorrhaging on the whales left side below
its pectoral flipper, an injury consistent with blunt force trauma such as a
ship strike, Marine Mammal Center
officials said.
The dead whale is the third to wash

ashore in Pacifica since April. A 48foot male sperm whale was found on
April 14 and a 42-foot adult female
humpback washed ashore on May 5.
Necropsies performed on those
whales were inconclusive, but scientists did find evidence of a ship strike
in the other humpback.
The
National
Oceanic
and
Atmospheric Administration in June
advised ships in shipping lanes near the
Bay Area to slow down to avoid striking
endangered blue, humpback and fin
whales moving through the area.

State meets drought-fueled fire season with extra crews


By Janie Har
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAKEPORT The firefighters come from


near and far, working 24-hour shifts to snuff
out an unpredictable blaze that has burned
more than 100 square miles in Northern
California near a major recreational lake.
They bunk in tight sleepers and eat in a
big mess hall. They depart in the mornings
with enormous high-calorie sack lunches of
sandwiches and cookies as others come
back tired, footsore and hungry to their
makeshift base at the Lake County fairgrounds.
The National Interagency Fire Center in
Idaho has listed the fire 110 miles north of
San Francisco as the nations highest priority for crews and equipment. It is the largest
of 23 fires statewide and takes up nearly a
third of the 10,000 firefighters dispatched
in California, which has become tinder box
amid years of drought.
The good news is state fire officials prepared for a drought-fueled fire season and
staffed up early with several hundred more
firefighters than previous years, Cal Fire
spokesman Daniel Berlant said.
Were definitely at a medium to high
level of activity but were not at extreme,
where we are low on resources by any
means, he said. That helps us out if there
are new fires.
Across the U. S. , 118 fires are burning
on 2, 757 square miles, according to the
Idaho fire center. About 17, 200 people
are fighting those fires, but resources
are not tapped out yet, center spokeswoman Robyn Broyles said. If civilian
crews run l o w, o ffi ci al s can cal l o n

national guard and military crews.


August is the height of fire season, and
while the number of fires nationally is
below average, the 9, 361 square miles
burned to date is about 50 percent above
average. Most of that 7,731 square miles
has been in Alaska.
On Wednesday, evacuation orders for a
small Washington town were lifted after a
fast-growing wildfire bypassed the community.
Fire spokesman Ron Fryer said people
were being allowed back into their homes in
Roosevelt, about 120 miles east of
Portland, Oregon. He said the grass fire that
began Tuesday has grown to 26 square
miles.
In California, the Department of Fire and
Forestry Protection has responded to 4,200
fires this year 1,500 more than average,
Berlant said.
The biggest is in rugged terrain in Lake,
Yolo and Colusa counties, and its cause is
under investigation. More than 13,000 people have been required or urged to leave their
homes, cabins and campsites, and at least
39 homes have been destroyed.

Some of the 3,400 firefighters on the

ago. The fire isnt expected to be fully corralled until at least Monday.
As much as crews love the work, fatigue
inevitably sets in.
This is our seventh day, said Seaton
King, a battalion chief with the Pasadena
Fire Department. He returned from a shift
protecting structures and cutting low tree
limbs.
You kind of get used to it, but its still
taxing in terms of being up and available for
those 24-hour work cycles.

California pays off $14B


in costly debt from 2004
By Juliet Williams
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO California closed an ugly chapter in


its financial history on Wednesday by making its final payment on $14.2 billion in costly borrowing that plugged a
budget deficit 11 years ago but eventually cost taxpayers
about $5 billion in interest and fees.
State Treasurer John Chiang and Director of Finance
Michael Cohen announced the final payment of nearly
$929 million toward the Economic Recovery Bonds, debt
that was approved by voters in 2004 after then-Gov. Arnold
Schwarzenegger led a bipartisan campaign promoting
them.
They failed to make the difficult decisions possible. ...
It was just the political will at that juncture, Chiang said of
the decision by political leaders to promote the borrowing.
Wall Street should not be the budget reserve of the state
of California. Its costly, it makes no sense, he said.
Promoting the borrowing in Proposition 57 was one of
Schwarzeneggers first acts in office, and he pitched the
measure as a way to avoid public service cuts and tax
increases.
Critics, including then-state Treasurer Phil Angelides,
warned that it was a mistake to shoulder long-term debt to
solve short-term problems and could put the state in a more
perilous financial position.
Schwarzenegger enlisted help from all quarters to sell the
plan, including Hollywood celebrities and lawmakers from
both parties who he wooed with cigars, dinners and private
plane rides. He even persuaded the governor he ousted from
office, Gray Davis, to campaign with him.

Half of blacks say police

WASHINGTON A majority of

being treated unfairly by the police,
and their race is the reason.
Half of African-American respondents, including 6 in 10 black men,
said they personally had been treated
unfairly by police because of their
race, compared with 3 percent of
whites. Another 15 percent said they

Leading GOP senator


offers bill on guns
and mental health
By Alan Fram
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON A leading Republican


senator proposed a National Rifle
Association-backed bill Wednesday that he
said would make the federal background
check system for gun buyers more effective
and bolster programs for treating people
with mental illness.
The measure drew criticism from groups
advocating stricter controls over firearms,
who said it doesnt go far enough and singled out provisions they said would make it
easier for some unstable people to obtain
deadly weapons. But it was backed by the
National Alliance on Mental Illness, which
advocates for mentally ill people, and
groups representing police organizations,

correctional workers and social workers,


which combined with NRA support could
broaden its appeal.
No. 2 Senate Republican John Cornyn of
Texas unveiled the legislation in the wake
of last months mass shooting in a
Louisiana movie theater by a gunman with
mental problems. That and other recent
firearms attacks have called attention to
holes in the background check system and
programs for people with psychological
difficulties.
Cornyn said that while past bills have
been designed to drive a political wedge
on the issue, his was aimed at helping people with mental health issues to hopefully
pre-empt them from committing an act of
violence. The bills prospects are uncertain,

RUETERS

Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell, center, speaks during a news conference
accompanied by Sen. John Cornyn, right.
Th e b i l l s b ack g ro un d ch eck p ro v i sions are far weaker than Senate legislation that Republicans and the NRA killed
two years ago; that legislation would
have required the checks for firearms
bought at gun shows and online. Cornyn
has an A-plus voting rating from the
NRA, wh i ch h as l o n g i mp eded g un
restrictions in Congress but has backed
some efforts to make it harder for mental-

ly ill people to purchase weapons.


Currently, background checks are required
only for sales by federally licensed gun
dealers.
People who have been legally ruled mentally defective or been committed to mental institutions are already barred from buying firearms. But states are not required to
send those records to the FBI-run federal
database, leaving it uneven.

Man wielding pellet gun, ax, attacks theater; shot by police


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ANTIOCH, Tenn. A man armed with a


hatchet and a pellet gun unleashed a volley
of pepper spray at audience members inside
a movie theater Wednesday before being
fired at by a police officer and shot dead by
a SWAT team as he tried to escape out a back
door, police said.
The attacker, identified as Vincente
David Montano, 29, of Nashville, was carrying two backpacks, one of which hung
from his chest, and he wore a surgical

mask, possibly to protect himself from the


pepper
spray
he
unleashed in
large
amounts during the
showing of Mad Max:
Fury Road, Metro
Nashville
Police
spokesman Don Aaron
said. He said three peoVincente
ple were blasted with
Montano
the spray and treated.
There were eight people in the theater,

including the assailant, Aaron said.


As he fled out the back, Montano encountered a SWAT team and was shot dead, Aaron
said. About two dozen gunshots could be
heard in a 10-second period in raw video
footage posted online by WKRN TV.
Police initially said that Montano had been
armed with a gun and that he exchanged fire
with the first responding officer, but Aaron
said later Wednesday that he had been armed
with a pellet gun.
The violence at the Carmike Hickory 8
complex comes about two weeks after a 59-

year-old drifter opened fire inside a movie


theater in Lafayette, Louisiana, fatally
shooting two before killing himself. It
also happened while jurors in Colorado
decide whether the man who killed 12 and
injured 70 others during a theater shooting
in 2012 should receive the death penalty.
One of the people hit with the pepper
spray in the theater also had a cut that evidently was caused by a hatchet, Aaron said.
Aaron identified the victim only as Steven
because he said the man did not want to
bring any more attention to his family.

Clinton tries to break


through Trump surge
with attacks on GOP
By Lisa Lerer
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON

Ten
Republican candidates for president in 2016 will debate Thursday
for first time. Spend any time listening to Democratic frontrunner
Hillary Rodham Clinton this past
week, though, and it would seem
like only one really matters: Jeb
Bush.
As billionaire businessman
Donald Trump thunders his way to
the top of the summertime polls,
Clinton is instead focused on the
former Florida governor as one of
the most likely and potentially threatening Republican
nominees.
Clinton repeatedly slammed
Bush by name on Tuesday after he
questioned spending public
money on womens health issues,
a more direct attack after she
slyly stung him last Friday by
using the name of his super PAC
and slogan of his campaign
Right to Rise to paint him as
setting back the cause of black
Americans.
People cant rise if they cant
afford health care. They cant rise
if the minimum wage is too low to
live on, Clinton told the annual
meeting of the National Urban
League, as Bush waited in the
wings to take his turn on stage.
They cant rise if their governor

makes it hard
for them to get
a college education and you
cannot seriously talk about
the right to rise
and
support
laws that deny
the right to
Donald Trump vote, she said.
For months, Clinton and her
team have tried to keep her above
the political fray. But with her
approval rating sinking in several polls, theyve moved to
reframe the race as a choice
between two different ideologies
rather than a referendum on her
family foundation, email usage
and other controversies.
Trumps rise has complicated
that effort: While Democrats generally view the carnival-like
atmosphere the billionaire businessman brings to Republican
field as a positive for Clinton,
there is concern that his dominance has allowed other potential
nominees to get a free pass on
such issues.
Clintons staff says their
assessment of the Republican
field fluctuates by the poll, the
week even by the day. Right
now, they see Bush, Florida Sen.
Marco Rubio and Wisconsin Gov.
Scott Walker as the most likely to
win the nomination.

Lawyer says government investigating


device storage security of Clinton emails
By Eric Tucker
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Federal
investigators have begun looking into the security of devices
on which Hillary Rodham
Clintons private email was
stored when she was secretary of
state, Clintons attorney confirmed Wednesday.
We are actively cooperating
with the investigation, attorney
David Kendall said in a statement.

The inspector general of the


U. S. intelligence community
alerted the FBI last month to
concerns that classified information was included in emails
that went through Clintons personal home server. The referral
to the Justice Department did
not seek a criminal probe and
did not specifically target
Clinton.
Quite predictably, after the
ICIG made a referral to ensure
that materials remain properly
stored, the government is seek-

ing assurance about the storage


of those materials, Kendall
said in his statement.
The Washington Post, which
first reported the FBIs involvement, said that the FBI has
asked Kendall about the security
of a thumb drive containing
copies of Clintons work emails
sent during her tenure as secretary of state, which is in his
possession. The Post cited two
anonymous government officials, who said that the FBI was
not targeting Clinton.

President Obama: Critics of Iran


nuclear deal selling a fantasy
By Julie Pace
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON President Barack


Obama assailed critics of his Iran nuclear
deal Wednesday as selling a fantasy to
the American people, warning Congress
that blocking the accord would damage the
nations credibility and increase the likelihood of more war in the Middle East.
Besides challenging opponents at home,
Obama cast Israeli Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu as an isolated international opponent of the historic accord,
saying, I do not doubt his sincerity, but I
believe he is wrong.
The agreement would require Iran to dismantle most of its nuclear program for at
least a decade in exchange for billions of
dollars in relief from international sanctions. But Netanyahu and some critics in
the U.S. argue that it would not stop Iran
from building a bomb.
The presidents blunt remarks, in an
hour-long address at American University,
were part of an intense lobbying campaign
by the White House ahead of Congress
vote next month to either approve or disapprove the international agreement.

Officials rescue 367 migrants


off Libya; 25 bodies found
ROME A fishing boat crowded with
migrants overturned Wednesday in the
Mediterranean off Libya as rescuers
approached, and the Italian coast guard and
Irish navy said at least 367 people were
saved, although 25 bodies also were found
in the latest human smuggling tragedy.
Coast guard Cmdr. Filippo Marini said the
rescue operation, involving seven ships,
was still underway several hours after the
capsizing. Survivors indicated that between
400 and 600 people were aboard the smugglers boat, he added.

Opponents of the agreement have streamed to


Capitol Hill, too, to
make their case, and they
have spent tens of millions of dollars on advertisements.
The stakes are high,
Obama said, contending
Barack Obama that it isnt just Irans
ability to build a bomb
that is on the line but also Americas credibility as the anchor of the international
system.
The choice we face is ultimately
between diplomacy and some form of war,
Obama said. Maybe not tomorrow, maybe
not three months from now, but soon.
Obamas diplomatic overtures to Iran, a
centerpiece of his foreign policy agenda,
have put him at odds with Republicans and
some Democrats, as well as with
Netanyahu, who has campaigned vigorously against the deal.
Netanyahu and U.S. critics of the Iran
deal say Obama is presenting a false choice
between accepting the deal at hand and
going to war to stop Iran from building a
bomb.

Around the world


The exact number of those aboard might
never be known, but authorities hoped to
have a better idea after survivors are interviewed.
The Irish naval vessel Le Niamh was one
of the ships tasked by the coast guard to
speed to the rescue of the boat shortly
before noon, Irish Capt. Donal Gallagher
told the Associated Press by phone.
The Le Niamh arrived near the fishing
boat, Marini said, and at the sight of it, the
migrants shifted to one side and their boat
capsized.

Malaysian leader reports debris


found on island from Flight 370
By Eileen Ng
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia A piece of


a wing found washed up on Reunion Island
last week is from Malaysia Airlines Flight
370 that vanished last year, Malaysias
prime minister announced Thursday, saying
he hoped the news ends the unspeakable
uncertainty of the passengers families.
Yet authorities in France, the U.S. and
Australia were more cautious, stopping
short of full confirmation. Some relatives
said the mixed messages were causing them
yet more confusion and anxiety.
The disappearance of the Boeing 777 jetREUTERS liner 515 days ago while on a flight from
Turkish soldiers stand guard at the Turkish-Syrian border in Karkamis, bordering with the Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014,
Islamic State-held Syrian town of Jarablus, in Gaziantep province, Turkey.
has been one of the biggest mysteries in
aviation history. Officials believed it
crashed in the southern Indian Ocean,

killing all 239 people


aboard, but it is unknown
why the plane went
down.
It is with a very heavy
heart that I must tell you
that an international
team of experts has conclusively confirmed that
Najib Razak the aircraft debris found
on Reunion Island is
indeed MH370, Prime Minister Najib
Razak told reporters. The French territory is
thousands of miles from the area being
searched for wreckage from the flight.
U.S. and French officials involved in the
investigation were more cautious, stopping
short of full confirmation but saying it made
sense that the metal piece of the wing,
known as the flaperon, came from Flight
370.

Turkey: Extensive fight Pope Francis: Keep door open to


against IS to start soon divorced Catholics who remarry
By Frances DEmilio

By Suzan Fraser
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ANKARA, Turkey An armed drone taking off from Turkey launched a strike on the
Islamic State group on Wednesday, a U.S.
official said, as Turkeys foreign minister
said American aircraft had begun to arrive at
a Turkish base close to the border with Syria
and an extensive fight against the extremists would begin soon.
Also Wednesday, Syrias foreign minister
said Damascus would support efforts against
IS, as long as the fight is coordinated with
the Syrian government.
Ending its reluctance, Turkey carried out
airstrikes against IS targets in Syria late last
month and agreed to allow U.S. warplanes to
use Incirlik Air Base for operations, taking a
more front-line role in the U.S.-led coalitions fight against the extremists.
Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt. Jeff
Davis said a drone had launched an airstrike
from Turkey for the first time on Wednesday,
but provided no further details.
He said the U.S. was planning to fly
manned aircraft out of Turkey but that had not
yet begun.
U.S. officials had said the first armed drone
missions out of Turkey began last weekend
although they did not conduct airstrikes at
the time.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of


an ASEAN meeting in Kuala-Lumpur, Turkish
Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said the
battle against the IS from the Turkish air
base would begin soon, but didnt elaborate.
As part of the agreement reached with the
United States, we have made great strides on
the technicalities of Incirliks use and the
U.S. aircraft have started to arrive, the
state-run Anadolu Agency quoted him as
telling reporters. Soon we will together
start an extensive battle against Daesh. He
was using the Arabic acronym for the Islamic
State group.
The Turkish minister also told reporters
that once the effective fight has begun, the
ground would become safer for moderate
opposition forces fighting IS.
His comments came following reports that
members of the Free Syrian Army who went
through a U.S. training program to fight
Islamic State militants were captured by the
al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front in Syria.
Turkey on Wednesday named a new chief of
military staff as it takes on a more active role
in the fight against IS. Land Forces
Commander Gen. Hulusi Akar was appointed
to replace the current military chief who
retires at the end of a three-day, annual High
Military Council meeting which decides on
promotions, retirements and dismissals
within Turkeys armed forces.

VATICAN CITY Pope Francis declared


on Wednesday that divorced Catholics who
remarry, as well as their children, deserve
better treatment from the church, warning
pastors against treating these couples as if
they were excommunicated.
Catholic teaching considers divorced
Catholics who remarry are living in sin and
are not allowed to receive Communion,
leaving many of these people feeling
shunned by their church.
Francis emphasis on mercy in church
leadership has raised hope among many
such Catholics that he might lift the

Communion
ban.
Catholics who divorce
after a church marriage
but dont take up a new
union, such as a second
marriage, can receive
Communion.
The Vatican this fall is
holding a month-long
Pope Francis follow-up meeting on
family issues, after a
similar gathering last year left divorced
Catholics who remarry hoping in vain that a
quick end to the ban would have resulted
from those discussions.
In his latest remarks on divorce, Francis

Automakers working to prevent


hackers from commandeering cars
By Tom Krisher
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT When researchers at two


West Coast universities took control
of a General Motors car through cellular and Bluetooth connections in
2010, they startled the auto industry
by exposing a glaring security gap.
Five years later, two friendly hackers
sitting on a living room couch used a
laptop computer to commandeer a Jeep
from afar over the Internet, demonstrating an even scarier vulnerability.
Cars dont seem to be any more
secure than when the university guys
did it, says Charlie Miller, a security
expert at Twitter who, along with
well-known hacker and security consultant Chris Valasek, engineered the

attack on the Jeep Cherokee.


Fiat Chrysler, the maker of Jeeps, is
now conducting the first recall to
patch a cybersecurity problem, covering 1.4 million Jeeps. And experts and
lawmakers are warning the auto industry and regulators to move faster to
plug holes created by the dozens of
new computers and the growing number of Internet connections in todays
automobiles.
The average new car has 40 to 50
computers that run 20 million lines of
software code, more than a Boeing
787, a recent KPMG study found.
Miller and Valasek are known as
white hat, or ethical, hackers and
reported their findings to the company. But the episode raised the prospect
that someone with malicious intent

could commandeer a car with a laptop


and make it suddenly stop, accelerate
or turn, injuring or killing someone.
After the 2010 hack, the auto industry plugged access holes and tried to
isolate entertainment and driver information systems from critical functions
such as steering and brakes. But in
each subsequent model year, it added
microchips and essentially turned cars
into rolling computers. The introduction of Internet access has created a
host of new vulnerabilities.
The adversary only needs to find
one way to compromise the system,
where a defender needs to protect
against all ways, says Yoshi Kohno,
associate professor of computer science at the University of Washington,
who was part of 2010 hack.

Solar deals hot, but investors fret; Sunrun IPO fizzles


By Jonathan Fahey
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK A string of deals


involving rooftop solar companies
has shown both the appeal and potential of the business and limits to
investor enthusiasm.
SunRun, the San Francisco-based
solar financing pioneer, raised $250
million in an initial public offering
Wednesday, but shares fell 13 percent.
Late last month SunEdison bought the
rooftop installer Vivint Solar for $2.2
billion, but SunEdison shares have
fallen 28 percent since.

Still, SunRun was able to raise the


amount it had hoped to, and the price
for Vivint was high, signaling to analysts that despite the recent bumps,
rooftop solar remains promising.
One (rooftop solar company)
priced in the middle of its range and
another sold for $2.2 billion. Things
are very good in residential solar,
said Shayle Kann, an analyst at GTM
Research.
Not all recent moves have scared
investors. SolarCity shares rose 2
percent Wednesday after it announced
the acquisition of Ilioss, a developer
in Mexicos fast-growing solar market. SolarCity shares are up 16 percent

over the past month.


The rooftop solar business has been
fueled by declining system costs, a
federal subsidy that lowers the cost of
solar installations by 30 percent, and
low interest rates that reduce borrowing costs for systems that can cost
$25,000 per roof.
This has allowed companies to offer
a tempting proposition to homeowners, one pioneered by SunRun and first

Teslas loss triples in 2Q
as it lowers delivery forecast
DETROIT Tesla Motors upcoming Model X SUV cast a
long shadow over the companys second-quarter results.
Teslas net loss nearly tripled to $184 million in the
April-June period as it invested in tooling and factory
capacity for the new SUV, which is scheduled to go on sale
next month.
The Palo Alto maker of electric cars also lowered its
expectations for full-year sales because its not confident
suppliers will be able to meet its production goals for the
Model X in the fourth quarter. It now expects to sell between
50,000 and 55,000 Model S sedans and Model X SUVs this
year, down from a previous target of 55,000.
We do think that its going to be quite a challenging production ramp on the X, Tesla CEO Elon Musk told analysts
on a conference call Wednesday. We only want to deliver
great cars, so we dont want to drive to a number thats
greater than our ability to deliver high-quality vehicles.
Teslas shares fell $18.13, or 6.7 percent, to $252 in
after-hours trading following the release of the earnings
report.
Musk later mused that the Model X could be the hardest
car to build in the world. Its tricky features include unique
side doors that open out and upward.
Tesla sold a quarterly record 11,532 Model S electric cars
in the second quarter. It said sales grew more than 50 percent in Europe despite two price increases in the last six
months, and they were up 30 percent in the U.S. Revenue
rose 24 percent to $954.9 million.

Googles ultra-fast Internet


service expands to San Antonio
SAN ANTONIO Googles ultra-fast Internet service is
coming to San Antonio, the largest city yet to be promised
the opportunity to accelerate the speed of their online
access.
With the addition of San Antonio announced Wednesday, a
total of 24 U.S. cities scattered through seven states have
now been selected as markets for an Internet service called
Google Fiber.
Started five years ago in Kansas, the ambitious project
represents Googles attempt to pressure major broadband
providers such as Comcast, Verizon Communications and
AT&T Inc. to upgrade their networks so they run at faster
speeds.
Google Inc. is installing fiber-optic lines in selected
cities to deliver Internet service at one gigabit per second,
up to 100 times faster than existing services. The Mountain
View, California, company figures it will benefit if the
Internet is available at faster speeds by making online
access a more enjoyable experience, increasing the chances
that people will see ads at Googles search engine or its
other services such as the popular YouTube video site.
Prices for Google Fiber are comparable or below what
most households already pay. The service typically costs
about $70 per month for just high-speed Internet service.
Google Fiber is currently available in Kansas City,
Kansas; Kansas City, Missouri; Provo, Utah; and Austin,
Texas.

Caadas Miguel transfers to Rogers State


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

It was quite a summer for slugging Top


Speed Baseball of the Golden State
Collegiate Baseball League. Posting a 43-6
record, the San Anselmo-based summer team
was propelled to a GSCBL championship
with a contingent of Caada bats in the middle of its order.
Former Colts masher Steve Knudson
who hit 24 home runs at the University of
Montevallo this season continued his

power barrage by setting the Top Speed single-season record with a league-leading 18
homers. Recent Caada graduate Champi
Lucca ranked fourth in the league with seven
home runs for Top Speed.
Another recent Caada grad, Daly City
native Chris Miguel, ranked second in the
GSCBL with a .390 batting average. In a
way, Miguel was playing with house
money, having committed in June to transfer to Rogers State University.
Miguel is one of three Colts to transfer to
the Division-II program in Claremore,

Oklahoma, along with pitcher Josh Eclavea


and catcher Jason Marley. In Miguel, the
Hillcats are getting a third baseman who hit
for a .289 career batting average at Caada
from 2014-15.
According to Miguel, it took some time
to craft a collegiate swing. Hence the reason
he took a redshirt at Caada in 2013.
At Sacred Heart, I was more of a dominant
pitcher, Miguel said. I wasnt known as a
hitter. I hit in the middle of the order, but we

The good news is:
the fall sports season

weeks from the

and were about a
month before we start
seeing some nonleague games and
matches beginning.
While all sports are important, football,
obviously, takes center stage in the fall,
so I started poking around various websites, checking out schedules and any
available rosters for Peninsula Athletic
League teams to see if I can glean any kind
of interesting information about the

Seubert bounces back over course of freshman year


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

As a center fielder this summer for


American Legion Post 82, Matt Seubert
covered ground and dove around like he was
trying to win a Gold Glove.
The catch is center field isnt Seuberts
natural position. While he took to it with a
love-of-the-game enthusiasm, Seubert is a
natural shortstop and also pitches.
He hasnt done much of either since joining the collegiate ranks at Skyline College.

Coming off an arm injury


he sustained in high
school, Seubert converted to first base. He didnt
play a lick of shortstop
and totaled just nine
innings on the mound.
But if all goes according to plan, that wont
Matt Seubert be the case in 2016.
He played [shortstop]
in high school and hes very good, Skyline
manager Dino Nomicos said. The only rea-

son he played first is because of his arm. But


now his arm is healthy. So were going to
start him off at short and see how he does.
As a freshman, Seubert cracked the starting lineup because the Trojans needed a middle-of-the-order presence. He provided that,
debuting in the No. 3 spot of the batting
order on opening day by going 2 for 4 with
three RBIs in a 12-6 win over Laney
College.
He went on to hit .267 with 20 RBIs while
playing in all but one game. Only, he had to
convert to first base to do it a position so

new to him, he purchased the only firstbasemans glove hes ever owned just two
weeks before reporting for fall practice.
I had arm problems last summer,
Seubert said. [Skyline] knew about it and
that it wasnt anything I needed surgery for
or anything like that. It was just a rest
thing. But when I came back, I was a month
behind everyone else but I just got going
hitting-wise and I didnt ever really cool
down.

Ledecky claims Haley rides five titles to Canton


gold in 200 free
By Schuyler Dixon

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

By Beth Harris
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KAZAN, Russia Katie Ledecky is


unbeatable in the distance races. Turns out
shes awfully good going shorter, too.
The 18-year-old American rallied to win
the 200-meter freestyle at the world swimming championships Wednesday night,
beating a stellar field that
included defending champion Missy Franklin of
the United States and
two-time winner Federica
Pellegrini of Italy.
Ledecky had a good view
of the competition from
lane 7. Breathing to her
right, she saw all but one of
Katie Ledecky her rivals and halfway
through she knew another gold medal was hers.
She rallied from fourth after the first two
laps to touch first in 1 minute, 55.16 seconds for her second gold medal of the championships. She already won the 1,500 free,
lowering her own world record in the preliminaries and final.
Pellegrini of Italy finished second in
1:55.32, and Franklin was third in 1:55.49.
I knew it was going to be a really competitive field and that was something that
was really special for me, Ledecky said. It
was an honor to be in a heat like that.
Femke Heemskerk of the Netherlands took
it out strongly, dipping under world-record
pace on the opening lap. She was still in front
through the third lap before fading to eighth.
Franklin was second and Ledecky fourth
halfway through the most anticipated
womens race in Kazan. Ledecky moved up
to second behind Heemskerk on the third lap
while Franklin dropped to third.

OXNARD Charles Haley walks the sidelines at training camp a little more slowly
these days, his gruff exterior softened by a
smile as he jokingly chides reporters and
team personnel with the Dallas Cowboys.
It wasnt an act 25 years ago, when San
Francisco was trying to appease one of the
NFLs best pass rushers before giving up and
trading him to a top NFC rival in the middle
of what became a Hall of Fame career.
When I went into the NFL, I was a 22year-old athlete that had an 11-year-old kid
inside of me crying for help. But I refused to
ask for it, said Haley, the only player with
five Super Bowl rings as he heads into his
induction Saturday in Canton, Ohio.
I think the people that reached out to me
were the people that saw me hurting and
knew that I needed help and knew I was too
dumb or too weak to ask for it. I realize at
this stage of my life that its better to mend
fences than to burn them down.
Most of those fences were on the West
Coast, where Haley reportedly once urinated
on the car of Tim Harris after Harris was
acquired in a move seen as a challenge to
Haley. There was also talk of fights with
teammates and lewd behavior in the locker
room, both in San Francisco and Dallas.
Years later, after Haley retired, the former
defensive end was diagnosed as bipolar.
Be honest with yourself, you had to know
something was wrong with him, right? former teammate Nate Newton said. He just
wasnt a normal guy. But when that came
out, Im glad he faced it and overcame it and
he knows what he has to do to maintain
that.
Newton was close to Haley then and is
now. Newton, who spent almost two years in
prison on marijuana trafficking convictions
after his career ended, said the locker room in
Dallas was simply a better fit for Haley.
Everybody was unique, Newton said.

Former 49ers and Cowboys great defensive


end Charles Haleywill be inducted into the
Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.
Michael Irvin was unique in his own way.
Kevin Gogan was unique. Mark Tuinei was
unique. ... We respected each other. We all
had our limits. We knew how far to push each
other.
A playoff loss to Detroit ended the 1991
season, and coach Jimmy Johnson vowed in
front of his team that he would improve the
pass rush. Sure enough, the 49ers made
Haley available, and Johnson had some
Cowboys call their counterparts with the
49ers. He had assistant coaches check with
San Franciscos staff.
To a man, and of course everybody knew
he was an outstanding player, but everybody
said he had a passion for the game,
Johnson said. He was smart. And he was an
extremely hard worker. Regardless of his
problems, I knew that if he was smart and
would work hard and he had a passion for the

game, that I could deal with him.


Johnson had a few run-ins with Haley, who
eventually asked his coach to stop chastising him in front of other players. Haley said
he understood it needed to happen, but asked
if it could be in private.
And I said, Charles, I cant guarantee you
that thats going to happen. But Ill take
that into consideration, Johnson said.
From that time forward, we had a great relationship. Charles is one of my favorite
players. He was fun to coach. He made it
interesting.
A 1986 fourth-round pick out of James
Madison, Haley won Super Bowls with the
1988 and 89 championships with San
Francisco. There were back-to-back titles
with the Cowboys (1992-93) before the
final one in 1995.
Haley finished with 100 1/2 sacks, half of
all-time leader Bruce Smiths total in 19 seasons. Hes not even in the top 10 on the
Dallas with 34 in five seasons. Haleys back
problems limited him late in a 12-season
career that actually ended with one more year
in San Francisco in 1999 after two years out
of the game.
But the Cowboys never measured his
worth in sacks.
Super Bowl. Super Bowl, Newton said
about how much difference Haley made for
the Cowboys. He was the reason we won
the first Super Bowl. We needed a pass rush.
We had good corners that turned into great
corners because Charles Haley was at that
right defensive end.
Former 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr.
doesnt measure Haleys career in sacks or
Super Bowls.
I think his great legacy, besides being a
Hall of Fame and great, great football player, is what hes going to do with the rest of
his life in helping kids, said DeBartolo,
who will introduce Haley in the hall ceremony. That legacy probably is more important than the legacy that he aspired to in
football.

grand slam in 12 days with one out in the top
of the 10th inning and the Baltimore Orioles
beat the Oakland Athletics 7-3 on Wednesday.
Davis hit 28th home run and third in four
games on a 3-2 pitch from Arnold Leon (0-1).
It came two batters after Gerardo Parra was
intentionally walked to load the bases. Caleb
Joseph and Manny Machado led off the
inning with back-to-back singles.
Its the sixth grand slam of Davis career. He
also hit one against Tampa Bay on July 25.
The Orioles trailed 3-1 before scoring twice
in the sixth.
Closer Zach Britton (2-0) pitched a seasonhigh 2 1/3 scoreless innings for the win.
Marcus Semien had two hits and two RBIs
for the As.
Nolan Reimold snapped an 0-for-9 skid
with an RBI single off Oakland starter
Kendall Graveman in the third.
The As tied it on Brett Lawries sacrifice fly
in the bottom of the inning.

Tennis brief
Riske upsets Suarez Navarro
to reach quarters at Bank of the West
STANFORD American Alison Riske
changed her schedule this season to include
the Bank of the West Classic for a variety of
reasons. One of them was
to change her luck.
The 59th ranked Riske
did just that, beating
third-seeded Carla Suarez
Navarro 6-4, 6-4 on
Wednesday to reach the
quarterfinals.
Riske, making her
Alison Riske main draw debut in the
event, beat a top-10
player for the first time in nearly two years
and the second overall in 12 tries.
Germanys Mona Barthel also knocked off a
seeded player, beating sixth-seeded compatriot
Andrea Petkovic 5-7, 6-2, 7-6 (4) and could

THE DAILY JOURNAL

Through the summer with the offensivejuggernaut Shockers, Seubert did even more
damage at the plate, tallying a .376 batting
average. He tied for second place on the team
with 32 hits, along with catcher Felix
Aberouette and second baseman Aaron
Albaum, both who are slated to play at
Skyline next season. Only Serras Angelo
Bortolin was better, pacing the squad with 38
hits while hitting for a .514 average.
But the Shockers season ended in a flurry
of bureaucratic drama at the American Legion
state championship tournament last week in
Yountville.
With the team surging through the losers
bracket and into the semifinal round against
Merced, the Shockers took an 11-7 lead into
the final innings, only to have the eventual
win nullified when Merced protested the game
on the basis of San Mateo failing to file its

insurance paperwork by the June 1 deadline at


the beginning of the season. The resulting
elimination marked a weird conclusion to the
teams season.
On the field, however, the Shockers were
peppering the ball. Seubert paced the team
through four games in the Yountville tournament, batting .500 with nine hits. As a team,
San Mateo batted .331 throughout the tourney.
We were hitting it pretty good there,
Seubert said. We got fortunate to hit stride at
the right time. We came out a little flat, but
that made it so we came out and really starting
swinging and being competitive.
Merced went on to lose to Chico in
Sundays championship game 3-2. With the
Shockers averaging nearly nine runs per
game throughout the tourney, the team felt
pretty good about its chances had it been
allowed to advance.
We could have done a lot, Seubert said.
We had plenty of arms to throw so we
could have hung with Chico and beat them,
and done well at regionals.
Not to mention, it would have prolonged

Seuberts ambitious defensive showcase as a


center fielder. And with his arm finally
healthy and back to full strength, the thought
of reinjuring it never entered his mind, he
said.
Not at all, Seubert said. If it does, youre
not going to be able to perform if youre worried about things going wrong. So I just keep
having fun and try to keep that mindset.
As well as returning to the shortstop position next season, Seubert is also being
looked upon for consistent late-inning relief
for a promising Trojans pitching staff that
will feature a pair of reunited arms in the starting rotation. Former Capuchino tandem
right-hander Rory McDaid and left-hander Joe
Galea are both enrolled at Skyline for the fall.
McDaid is a sophomore transfer from Caada
while Galea enters his freshman season.
So, where precisely does Seubert fit on the
bullpen depth chart?
Closer, Nomicos said. Im not going to
use him as a starter only because hes going
to be an everyday shortstop and I dont want
to screw up his arm. And thats where hes
more comfortable.

You could just see it,
Knudson said. If he

cage or on the field, he

After hitting .297 this season as a sophomore, Miguels propensity for solid contact
only intensified through the summer with
Top Speed.
Every time he hit the ball, it just sounded like a car crashing into the side of a bus,
Knudson said.
With Miguel growing up within walking
distance of Westmoor High School, and
Knudson a South San Francisco native who
graduated from El Camino in 2011, the two
go way back. They first played together

with the South City PONY 14-year-old team


that advanced to the championship round of
the regional playoffs.
He raked, Knudson said. Me and him
hit right next to each other in the lineup all
summer. It was awesome.
And the two have a common bond in
world of four-year colleges as well. Prior to
transferring to Montevallo, Knudson
played his sophomore season at Oklahoma
Baptist University under assistant coach
Chris Klimas. This year, Klimas embarks
on his first season as manager at Rogers
State. And it is Klimas resume from powerhouse Oklahoma Baptist a perennial contender in the NAIA World Series that
piqued Miguels interest.
That definitely had a lot to do with it,
Miguel said. They are a very successful
program. So that was one of the bright
sides of me committing to Rogers State.
Miguel said he did garner Division-I interest, albeit a little too late in the game. An
offer was made to him by a California D-I

program, but he had already signed a


National Letter of Intent with Rogers State.
Miguel didnt rule out the possibility of a
Division-I transfer next year though.

49ers look to hone air attack


with new receiving options
By Chris Biderman
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SANTA CLARA Having spent


his entire football career playing
close to his Virginia home, new
49ers wideout Torrey Smith is
enjoying his first extended stay
out West in the Bay Area.
From where I went to high
school, to playing with the Ravens,
its literally off the same highway,
Smith said. I just constantly went
up (Interstate) 95. Its been so
close, Ive been so comfortable
with everything. This is my first
time really being outside of that.
With that, its been peaceful.
The 49ers are thrilled to have him
as a complement to former
Baltimore teammate Anquan Boldin.
The 26-year-old Smith became
San Francisco general manager
Trent Baalkes most expensive
free-agent acquisition to date since
being promoted to that role in
2011. Smith signed a $40 million,
five-year contract March 11.
Baalke showed the importance of
finding another deep threat following the departure of Michael
Crabtree as quarterback Colin
Kaepernick looks to bounce back
from a disappointing year.
He opens up a lot of possibilities, Kaepernick said. Hes a
great player whos shown he can
make plays in big-time situations,
and thats something we want to
take advantage of.
The offense sputtered with the
leagues 30th-ranked passing attack
last season as the 49ers went 8-8,
missed the playoffs for the first time

Harbaugh.
Smith
and
Boldin played
together for two
years with the
Ravens,
and
Boldin
took

part in recruiting Smith to the
Niners.
The duo combined for eight
catches, 139
yards and a
touchdown in
their 34-31 win
over the 49ers
Anquan Boldin in the Super
Bowl after the
2012 season.
Guys respect his speed, said
Boldin, who has had 1,000-yard
seasons in his two years with the
49ers. Youre not going to find too
many guys that play up on him like
that, which makes running intermediate routes that much easier for
him. But hes also a guy that doesnt mind getting his nose dirty
likes to get in there and get blocks.
Thats something we took pride in
as receivers in Baltimore.
Smith has averaged 16.9 yards per
reception throughout his four years
in the league after getting drafted in
the second round at 58th overall in
2011. San Francisco pass catchers
averaged 11.9 yards last season.
Everybody goes out on the field
and you see how fast he is, new
coach Jim Tomsula said. But my

first impression of Torrey Smith is


more about the man than it is about
the ball player. He is a unique guy.
And the way he carries himself and
the way he talks to people, hes one
of those multipliers. Hes just a really, really good person.
San Francisco also will rely on
Bruce Ellington, Quinton Patton and
newcomer Jerome Simpson.
Ellington, a favorite for the No. 3
receiver job, was used primarily as
the teams return man during his
rookie season, averaging 8.2 yards
per punt return and 25.6 on kickoffs. All three of his touchdowns
came on offense. In December,
Ellington became the first 49ers
rookie since Amp Lee in 1992 to
notch a touchdown rushing and a TD
receiving in the same game, scoring
on an 8-yard pass from Kaepernick
and on a 1-yard run in a 38-35 overtime loss to the Chargers.
On Wednesday, San Francisco
signed another wide receiver by
adding undrafted free agent Nigel
King on a two-year contract. He
joins five other undrafted free
agent receivers, including athletic
Dres Anderson out of Utah and
Alabamas DeAndrew White.
Anderson made a leaping catch on
the left sideline Tuesday on a pass
by Blaine Gabbert.
Anderson, the son of former Los
Angeles Rams receiver Flipper
Anderson, sustained a torn meniscus
in October against USC, ending his
senior season. White dealt with a
string injuries throughout his career
with the Crimson Tide, including an
ACL tear in 2012, a toe fracture, separated shoulder and hamstring.

The 48-year-old Ellis took over as head
coach of the U.S. team May 16, 2014, leading the women through World Cup qualifying and then to the title in Canada.
As the U.S. heads into its 10-game
Victory Tour this fall to celebrate its world
title, Ellis has compiled a 29-2-9 overall
record, including two stints as interim head
coach in 2012 and 2014.
Gregorio Paltrinieri of Italy finished second in 7:40.81 after leading for six laps until
he was passed late by Sun, who earned his
third consecutive world title.
Mack Horton of Australia, who led the first
eight laps, settled for third at 7:44.02.
Laszlo Cseh of Hungary overtook Chad Le
Clos to win the 200 butterfly as the oldest
man in the final at age 29.
Cseh trailed Le Clos after the first two laps
before passing the South African midway
through the third lap. He hung on and
touched first in 1:53.48.
Defending champion Le Clos settled for
silver in 1:53.68, and Jan Switkowski of
Poland earned bronze in 1:54.10.
I tried to take it out really hard. I wanted to
see if I could scare them off the first 100 but
it didnt work out, Le Clos said.
It was Csehs first gold at the worlds since
2005 in Montreal, where he won the 400
individual medley. He has reunited with his
childhood coach ahead of next years Rio de
Janeiro Olympics.
Michael Phelps, the world-record holder,
was forced to miss the world meet as part of
his suspension by USA Swimming after a
second drunk-driving arrest. He will be competing at U.S. nationals in Texas this week.
Adam Peaty of Britain earned his second
individual gold medal with a victory in the
50 breaststroke, a non-Olympic event. He
set the world record in the semifinals Tuesday
and came back to win in 26.51.
Cameron van der Burgh of South Africa finished second in 26.66. Kevin Cordes of the
United States was third in 26.86.
Peaty and van der Burgh also finished 1-2

Vladimir Morozov of Russia, a gold-medal

Keep compost simple


By Lee Reich
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Look on the shelves of almost


any store or in any catalog selling
plants and gardening equipment
and youll find compost activators offered. These mixtures contain beneficial microorganisms,
nutrients, and/or more esoteric
substances meant to speed composting or improve the quality of
the finished compost.
Despite the beneficial organisms and nutrients they contain,
however, compost activators are
generally neither needed nor costeffective. If you could take a
microscope to the pea vines, old
delphinium stalks and lettuce
plants tossed onto a compost
pile, youd see they are already
seething with microorganisms,
just whats needed to get decomposition underway. As raw materials are piled together, these
microorganisms get to work and
rapidly multiply, as long as they
also have sufficient moisture and
air.

WHAT DOES
A COMPOST PILE NEED?
Composting microorganisms
are most hungry for the elements
carbon and nitrogen, the ideal
being a ratio of about 15 parts carbon to 1 part of nitrogen. (This
need is analogous to our own

caloric needs mostly for carbohydrates, which are high in carbon,


and protein, which is high in
nitrogen.)
Carbon as a compost food
comes from bulky, old plant material, such as straw, hay, autumn
leaves, wood chips and old weeds
and garden plants. It would be
impossible to stuff suitable quantities of any of these materials in a
box of compost activator.
Nitrogen could be squeezed into
a box but could also be added by
sprinkling nitrogen fertilizer or
layers of manure on the pile as it
grows. Young, succulent weeds and
garden plants (such as thinnings
of excess carrot seedlings) and
kitchen scraps are also high in
nitrogen. Sprinkling the contents
of a box of compost activator on a
compost pile is an expensive way
to supply nitrogen, and brings no
special benefits beyond what the
above-mentioned materials would
bring.
No need to get too exacting
about ratios of nitrogen and carbon because they are influenced by
such things as the form of the
nutrients and the particle sizes of
the materials that carry them.

KEEP TABS ON PROGRESS


Monitor the progress and health
of your compost pile with your
eyes and your nose your eyes
preferably on a thermometer. As
long as the materials are moist, a

brown compost. Be patient.
The only compost piles that
might be candidates for compost
activators would be those oddball
piles built almost exclusively of
offbeat materials, such as sawdust,
or with a lot of plant debris that
had been heavily sprayed with
pesticides. Such piles could lack
the necessary organisms, temporarily at least (sawdust alone is

pile that doesnt heat up indicates


insufficient nitrogen or excess
carbon. A pile that smells bad signals the opposite. Either condition can be corrected by adding the
needed nitrogen or carbon materials.
Or by giving it time. A pile deficient in nitrogen, or built slowly
over a long period, may never get
hot but, in time, will turn to rich,

Even then, some soil and fertilizer
would likely serve just as well.
So pay attention to the ratio of
the various things you add to your
compost pile, and then watch and
smell what happens. Whatever
you do, dont fret too much over
details. Any pile of organic materials, kept moist, will eventually
turn to compost.

Pets pick up on cues to comfort the dying, the grieving


By Sue Manning
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES For those who are


dying, its clear why all dogs go to heaven.
They provide comfort not just in death,
but in other difficult times, whether its
depression, job loss or a move across country. Dogs know when people are dying or
grieving through body language cues,
smells only they can detect and other ways
not yet known, experts say.
As a hospice veterinarian, Jessica
Vogelsang knows how much being there
can mean to struggling people or pets.
Shes director of Paws Into Grace in
Southern California, a group of vets who
provide end-of-life care and euthanasia for
pets at home.
The San Diego vet finished her first book,
All Dogs Go to Kevin: Everything Three
Dogs Taught Me (That I Didnt Learn in
Veterinary School), just before learning
her mom, Patricia Marzec, had an inoperable brain tumor. The title of the memoir

SUPPLIES
Continued from page 1
Wednesday, Aug. 5, which served as an
opportunity for members of low-income
families to receive necessary education
materials such as pencils, pens, erasers,
notebooks and much more.
More than 100 children received the
donated backpacks and supplies during the
final day of the third annual charity event
dedicated to making sure all local students
have the same access to the supplies which
will help them succeed in school.
Priscila Aramburo, 12, smiled as she carefully selected the white and blue backpack
which would accompany her to her first day
of school at Abbot Middle School in San
Mateo.
Aramburo, who will be in seventh-grade
next year, said she appreciates the opportunity to accept the free supplies, because it
helps her prepare for classes.

PROFIT
Continued from page 1
to address this problem, Steyer said. We
have to protect Californians from these
gigantic and unprecedented gas hikes.
A brief supply shortage brought a huge

published last month refers to what


Vogelsangs toddler heard when he was told
all dogs go to heaven.
Her parents moved in so Marzec could
enjoy her last months with family, and
Vogelsangs golden retriever, Brody, picked
up on the changes. He always jumped on her
parents but stopped when they arrived in
April.
He knew Mom was sick. He was with her
24-7, Vogelsang said. He was trying not
to be too obvious, but Dad was on one side
and he was on the other.
Brody would lay by Marzecs feet or rest
his head on her lap when he sensed she was
sad. He wedged in next to her when hospice
workers came by, ignoring her shaking
hand as she patted his head, Vogelsang said.
He is still my dog, but he knew when
they came they needed him more than I did,
she said.
Dogs know to comfort people by sniffing
out some cancers, such as on the breath of a
lung cancer patient, said Dr. Bonnie Beaver,
professor at Texas A&M Universitys

College of Veterinary Medicine and executive director of the American College of


Veterinary Behaviorists.
But most often, its about body language.
They recognize fragile, slumped over,
not moving as well, Beaver said. Thats
how they read each other. ... They are great
at it, and we are not.
Some rest homes and hospices that have
live-in dogs to comfort patients even use a
dogs behavior such as who the animal
chooses to sleep with as a sign to tell
relatives to come say their goodbyes.
A lot of resident dogs know those people
and know something is different, whether
the smell changes or they are moving less,
Beaver said.
Dogs also can help those dealing with
other challenges.
In the book, Vogelsang introduces pets
that got her through some life changes. As a
little girl, her Lhasa Apso named Taffy
helped her adjust to an unwanted move from
New England to California.
Just after the birth of her first child, her

golden retriever Emmett wouldnt leave her


alone as she struggled with postpartum
depression and a new career as a veterinarian. He gave her love, as well as looks that
led to some soul-searching to get the help
she needed, Vogelsang said.
Later, an older Labrador retriever named
Kekoa taught her to let go of unrealistic
expectations as she balanced career and
motherhood. When the dog got cancer,
Vogelsang didnt push endless procedures
and medications, because it wasnt right for
Kekoa. That led her into the hospice-care
field.
After Vogelsangs mother moved in, the
family spent two months watching movies,
eating cookies and watching butterflies flit
across the yard. Pat Marzec even read her
daughters book, giving her approval.
She died June 3, about a month before it
went to print.
Those last two months we had were just
an incredible time, Vogelsang said. Death
is just a moment. Life is everything else
leading up to it.

She also said the donation allows her to


spend more time enjoying her summer, as
she will need to dedicate less of her free time
to tracking down necessary supplies.
I get all my stuff on time, that way I can
spend time with my friends, she said.
This year, Samaritan House gave out a
total of 500 backpacks all packed tirelessly by volunteers with materials donated
by local residents and businesses which
were designated separately for students in
elementary and high school.
Samaritan House CEO Bart Charlow said
the nonprofit takes great pride in the ability to help prepare students in families of the
more than 12,000 individuals it serves
annually.
We are trying to make sure kids are well
equipped to go to school, he said.
Beyond the backpack drive, Samaritan
House will also work with many of the students who accepted the donation to develop
their reading skills during the school year,
as well as feed them meals when necessary,
offer them access to clothing drives, and a

variety of other valuable services.


The organization, which relies on the
efforts of more than 2,000 volunteers to
offer its services, is thrilled to have the
opportunity to continuously give back,
said Director of Development Mary Dunbar.
Its important to have places like the
Samaritan House, said Dunbar, while
watching young students browse through
the variety of backpacks set in front of
them.
Charlow echoed those sentiments.
This is a massive community effort, and
it really builds the community, he said.
The nonprofits efforts to help prepare
students for the coming school year continues this week, as students can come back
Thursday, Aug. 6, to Samaritan House and
receive a free haircut.
Children signed up to receive services
from Samaritan House can get a fresh look
due to the charitable efforts of Great Clips,
which will also make a financial donation
to the nonprofit.
While her 5-year-old daughter browsed the

backpacks filled with material for elementary school children, Lucila Calderon, of
San Mateo, beamed with pride.
The opportunity to receive donated materials which can help her daughter Sasha prepare for school, while saving money, is a
tremendous assistance to Calderon, she
said.
It is really good to have this chance,
she said. These materials are really expensive, especially for a mother with three
kids, so this comes in handy, she said.
Offering local families peace of mind
going into the new school year is one reason Samaritan House strives to offer such
events, said Charlow, but the greater effort
is to build confidence and preparedness for
those in need.
Its not about pencils, said Charlow.
Its about equipping students with dignity.

rise in wholesale prices in California last


month. Drivers in some parts of the state
paid more than $4 a gallon for gas. Prices
have since decreased.
According to GasBuddy, the average price
in California was about $3.70 a gallon on
Wednesday. The nationwide average was
about $2.63.
Steyer, a hedge fund manager who
dropped $74 million into the 2014

November elections for candidates who


support policies to curb climate change,
said any attempt by legislators to fix
Californias gas market should require oil
companies to fully disclose profits; give
the public advance notice of planned maintenance and outages at refineries; maintain
minimum gas reserves to prevent a price
hike; and increase penalties for any company that illegally conspires to increase gas
prices.
He pointed to Consumer Watchdogs
analysis showing oil companies tripled
their refiner margins, from 47 cents to
$1.61 for each gallon sold between July
2014 and last month.
The analysis highlighted Chevron,
which it said increased its refining profits
by $214 million, or 41 percent, over the
same quarter last year.
That is money that is being made off the
pockets of Californians at the pump,
Steyer said.
Braden Reddall, a spokesman for
Chevron, said prices are different in
California because of a fire at one refinery,
a strike at another, higher taxes on gas and

a new state-mandated fuel regulation.


While it is easy for groups like
Consumer Watchdog and individuals like
Tom Steyer to take one factor in our earnings out of context, what cant be taken out
of context is the fact that many policies
backed by Steyer are already increasing fuel
prices for California consumers, Reddall
said.
Steyer and Consumer Watchdog president
Jamie Court said they have not yet identified any lawmakers who intend to carry the
legislation.
The Legislature is currently in recess and
would have only until the middle of
September to pass legislation this year.
In addition to the money he spent on
2014 races, Steyer is a prolific Democratic
fundraiser and donor who has recently hosted events for President Barack Obama and
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary
Clinton.
He toyed with a run for U.S. Senate next
year in the race to succeed U. S. Sen.
Barbara Boxer but decided against it,
though he is thought to be considering a
run for governor in 2018.

Ask a Designer: How to add a


touch of homemade to any room
By Melissa Rayworth
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

No matter his clients taste or budget,


interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn follows this rule: For every large, manufactured item that he adds to a room, he also
includes three handmade pieces.
They might be anything from patchwork
pillows and hand-woven throw rugs to a
repurposed object made into a table lamp,
he says.
They could be expensive or totally affordable.
The key is they were made by a person,
not a machine.
Handmade objects have become more
and more in demand over the past 10 years,
says Flynn, of Flynnside Out Productions.
People seem to really love the story
behind how things are made, and they want
their homes to have the meaning and character that handmade pieces evoke.
With flea market and craft fair season in
full swing, weve asked Flynn and two other
interior designers Betsy Burnham of Los
Angeles Burnham Design and Dan Faires,
host of HGTVs Dan Made what kinds
of handmade items they seek, where to find
them and how to use them in decorating any
space.

WHAT WORKS
Its easiest to start small, with handmade
accessories. The items on your coffee table
might include hand-thrown pottery or handpainted trays, side-by-side with books and
other mass-produced pieces. Handmade candle holders and pillows are also easy to find,
as are little sculptures and other small
pieces of handmade art.
Any accessory collection should include
organic or handcrafted items because, honestly, who wants shelves full of manufactured knickknacks? asks Burnham.
Going a bit bigger, pottery lamp bases
are great additions to any room, says
Burnham, as are handmade quilts and knit
throws.
Flynn likes to have one or two handmade
fabrics in every room for instance, the
artisanal fabric of Zak and Fox, which
Flynn says look like they were made by

Flea markets and craft fairs are perfect places to buy handmade or just browse for ideas. And the Internet, of course, has made finding
handmade items easy year-round: Etsy.com and UncommonGoods.com are two popular sites, but a quick online search will likely turn up
information about local crafters in your area, too.
tribes hundreds of years ago, but somehow
they also seem modern.
Faires suggests custom-made lighting:
There is so much bad lighting on the market these days, so this is an area where I like
to customize the piece to fit the style of the
space. You can get so much bang for your
buck with a handmade light fixture in any
space.
If youre looking to add a large handmade
piece to a room, such as a table, reach out to
local carpenters for price quotes based on
your specifications.

WHERE TO FIND IT
Flea markets and craft fairs are perfect
places to buy handmade or just browse for
ideas. And the Internet, of course, has made
finding handmade items easy year-round:
Etsy.com and UncommonGoods.com are
two popular sites, but a quick online search
will likely turn up information about local
crafters in your area, too.
When you find something, try to discover a bit about its history. Burnhams clients
enjoy handmade items more when they
know the provenance and the story behind a
piece, she says. They get a further boost
knowing theyre supporting a particular
artist or artisan.
Handmade pieces also can speak directly

to your history. Ask around for local


painters and photographers whose work
captures the region where you live, then see
whether their work speaks to you. These
are the items that become the focal point
and conversation pieces in the room,
Faires says.

HOW TO USE HANDMADE DECOR


Flynn loves to place objects made from
stone or other materials with organic
imperfections on smooth, machine-perfect surfaces. When Ive got pristine bookshelves to display interesting things, he
says, I love the juxtaposition of a fluid,
biomorphic shape with rough texture
against something rigid and linear. That
creates visual tension, something designers
use to add depth.
You can also magnify the appeal of something traditional a classic fireplace mantle, for example by hanging a colorful,
whimsical piece of handmade art over it.
Or make your own partially handmade
piece by adding your creativity to a factorymade piece of furniture.
While Id prefer all seating and beds in
my house to be handmade by artisans,
sometimes manufactured items are just more
affordable and ready right away, Flynn
says. To make these things a bit more per-

sonalized, Ill add something unique to


them, like hand-blocked wallpaper to the
back of bookshelves or locally crafted
sconces to a wall covered in 50-cent white
subway tile from the home improvement
store. Its all about the mix.
Even lower-end manufactured items can
take on high-end style with a bit of handmade assistance. I have Ikea cabinetry in
almost every house Ive designed because
its practical. However, I make the readymade drawer and door fronts seem more custom by installing forged-iron or antiquebrass hardware made by local artisans,
Flynn says.

EXTRA BENEFITS
Going handmade means you can get
exactly what you want and need. With the
rise in popularity of artisan goods, interior
designers have a much broader palette,
Faires says.
You also may get higher quality if you go
handmade.
Honestly, most mass-produced wood furniture items are poorly manufactured, says
Faires, who builds custom furniture for
clients. I always encourage clients to
think long-term. Purchasing solid, handcrafted goods that are timeless is a much
better investment.

Continued from page 1
City. A good fit with the type of businesses that we would like to see come
to Foster City.
The Bayside community is becoming a hub of biotech innovation with
Gilead Sciences also in the process of
expanding its own campus.
Illumina struck the 15-year campus
lease with BioMed last year after the
former tenant, Life Technologies
Corp. , relocated to South San
Francisco. Now, Illumina seeks to start
out bringing about 600 employees to
its new headquarters that could boast
555,000 square feet of office and lab
space spread between three buildings
up to seven stories tall. A 40,000square-foot two-story building to
house amenities for employees and
visitors such as a fitness center, caf,
dry cleaners as well as meeting space is
also planned. Three parking structures
with nearly 1,800 spaces are included
as well, according to a city staff report.
By 2018, Illumina anticipates
employing nearly 1,200 people at its
Foster City site.
With the influx of employees at the
site just south of State Route 92 next
to the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge, the
environmental impact report suggests
the most comprehensive transportation demand management plan the city
has received to date, Banks said.
Yet there remain unavoidable traffic

the rents from increasing and were not

Each tenant was also given a fourmonth notice of the rent increase at the
beginning of June, Baiz said.
Rents at the Laurel Street property
will now be approximately $2.38 per
square foot, which Baiz argues is
below the rents of some other properties.
Baiz said the extra rent will also go
toward needed improvements to the
property.
But tenants Barbara ONeil, who has
lived there 11 years, and Diane
Fjelstad, who has lived there 13 years,
said they are also being asked to pay a
second deposit to pay for fresh paint or
carpet if they desire.
ONeils rent will climb $1,100 a
month and Fjelstads rent will rise
$1,000 a month. They both rent twobedroom units.

Route 92 east of Foster City


Boulevard, according to the report.
The intersections that will have
increased delays due to the new campus
are Foster City Boulevard at Chess
Drive, Norfolk Street at East Third
Avenue and the eastbound ramps to
State Route 92 off Metro Center
Boulevard, according to the report.
While Illumina has not confirmed its
transportation demand management
plan that could reduce single-occupancy vehicle trips by 21 percent, officials with the company said there will
be commuter incentives to entice
employees to use public transportation like Caltrain and Bay Area Rapid
Transit.
As development continues throughout the region, its important for communities to ensure comprehensive
transportation demand management
plans are in place, said Tom Madalena,
transportation planning manager with
the City/County Association of
Governments.
C/CAG reviewed and approved the
traffic mitigation proposal as it conformed to the countys Congestion
Management Plan by implementing
enough measures to reduce more than
631 vehicle trips per day, Madalena
said.
Measures include offering services
on site, providing bike lockers as well
as showers, implementing shuttle programs and guaranteeing rides home for
commuting employees facing an emergency by paying for a taxi, according
to the report.
Youre making it more comfortable
and more likely that employees will
utilize mobility options other than

single-occupancy vehicles, which we


hope is a good thing. Were trying to
get people out of their cars, and its
hard to do that, Madalena said. But
were all up against crazy challenges
with traffic.
Banks noted the city did not receive
many public comments on the draft
report that was discussed by the
Planning Commission in June.
If the Planning Commission and
City Council approve the biotech campus and the proposed traffic mitigation
measures, the 12-month construction
period could culminate in December
2016, according to the report.
BioMed Realty is very excited
about developing this state-of-the-art
campus for Illumina in Foster City. We
believe this site has a great location
for Illumina employees to commute to
work by car or using public transportation whether they live in downtown
San Francisco, down on the Peninsula
or in the East Bay, BioMed
spokesman Jim Cullinan said previously. We are eager to begin construction.

A $2,850 a month rent will eat up


about 63 percent of ONeils take home
pay, who works as a teacher in the San
Mateo-Foster City Elementary School
District.
Fjelstad, 62, decided to apply for her
Social Security benefits three years
early just to cover the rent increase.
Her rent will now eat up 44 percent
of her net income which includes the
Social Security subsidy.
They were also told more rent
increases are possible.
ONeil has written letters to the San
Mateo City Council and other policymakers about her plight.
I see a lot about the displacement of
low-income workers in this area but
little reference to median income professionals who are also being displaced ... landlords and Realtors who
see the handwriting on the wall are taking advantage of the opportunity to
raise rents before the bubble bursts
and/or laws are enacted to provide tenant protection in San Mateo County,
ONeil wrote.
ONeil and Fjelstad say its time for
cities to start considering rent control

as a way to combat the housing crisis.


This is leading to the elimination
of the middle class here, ONeil said.
The way tenants were presented with
the rent increase was callous and
cold, they said.
The average rent for a one-bedroom
apartment in the county is now
$2,516, a 50.2 percent increase in four
years, according to a housing indicators report released last month by the
countys Housing Authority.
At the rate things are going there
will be no one left to work in the
restaurants or mow the lawns and clean
the houses of the few who will be able
to remain in the area. There will also
be no one to staff the hospitals, work
in city or county offices, put out fires,
enforce the law or teach in the schools.
Many middle-income professionals
are beginning to realize that we can no
longer afford to live in the community
that we have loved and helped build,
ONeil wrote in the letter.
