Coastside library redevelopment proceeding
Half Moon Bay hires architect, some seek more public input opportunities
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Coastside residents are a step closer to
receiving a new library after the Half
Moon Bay City Council voted to hire an
architect Tuesday night.
The proposed $22 million project is a
collaborative effort between the city and
county, with the San Mateo County
Board of Supervisors agreeing to fund
half the cost. The current library, built in
1971 in the heart of downtown near
schools and seniors, will be redeveloped
into a larger state-of-the art facility.
“There’s an available site now that’s
going to provide services to the maxi-

mum number of people in a location that
really works best for kids and seniors,”
said Supervisor Don Horsley. “Libraries
have really reinvented themselves.
They’re really community centers and
they’re great for people to learn how to
speak [a language], or to use computers
to send out resumes, or for kids to do
their homework. They’re not what they
used to be, they’re really vital community resources.”
The council voted 3-1-1 to approve a
$2.2 million contract with Noll & Tam
Architects — a firm chosen after a
lengthy review by a working group comprised of Councilwoman Deborah
Penrose, county Library Joint Powers

Authority representatives, city staff,
Supervisor Carole Groom and members
of the community.
Councilwoman Debbie Ruddock
voted against the contract while Penrose
abstained. Both said they were confident
in the architect, but were deterred by citizens who felt they hadn’t been included
in the selection process and have concerns with the proposed size as well as
scope of the library.
“My objection is that the process is
going so fast, that there has been no real
concrete assurance that we will have a
process prior to design, which includes

Helping the whole world smile
Local student looks to offer dental care to other nearby nations
By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

A San Bruno dentistry student is
hoping to make the smiles of
Jamaican families a little whiter and
brighter, through an online fundraising campaign which will pay for his
community service journey.
Ricardo Wassmer, 23, is $120 shy
of the $1,900 goal he has set on
GoFundMe.com, that is slated to
finance his part of a nine day visit
next month to Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
Wassmer, a San Francisco native
who has lived with his family in San

Bruno for the
last 15 years,
said he expects
to spend the
entirety of the
trip to the island
nation offering
much-needed
oral
hygiene
care to resiRicardo
dents.
Wassmer
He is one of
roughly 30 students from the
University of California at San
Francisco dentistry program who
are planning to visit Jamaica, but the

school is not contributing financial
support, which is why he is relying
on the generosity of others.
Though Wassmer, who is in his
third year of the dental education
program, said he is uncertain how
many patients he will treat during
the trip, he is prepared to serve as
many as he can.
“I don’t want anyone to not get
care,” he said.
Most of the patients he will see in
Jamaica have minimal, and in some
cases no, regular access to dental

Prompted by a citizens’ referendum to overturn Belmont’s controversial zoning amendments, the City
Council will now begin to outline a
public engagement process as it
seeks to improve regulations governing how property owners remodel their homes.
On Tuesday night, the City
Council will discuss how to proceed
with further outreach to the community over the coming months. At the
heart of the debate is a range of pos-

sible changes to codes governing
how single-family home remodels
such as parking requirements,
replanting as well as removal of
trees, home sizes and secondary
units.
After studying the issue and conducting 10 public hearings, the
council passed the amendments earlier this year. A group called Ask
Belmont
Citizens,
however,
expressed concern about the
impacts of the new rules and gathered about 2,200 signatures on two

With record-setting high temperatures and severe drought conditions

Doctor pleads not guilty to
sexually assaulting patient
DA: More victims could come forward against Redwood City acupuncturist
STAFF AND WIRE REPORT

A Redwood City doctor accused of sexually
assaulting a female patient during an acupuncture session two months ago appeared in court
Friday morning.
65-year-old Randall Neustaedter pleaded
not guilty in San Mateo County Superior
Court to sexual battery and sexual penetration
charges stemming from the June incident,
according to prosecutors.
During the arraignment, a judge ordered
Neustaedter not to perform any acupuncture
sessions or have any visits from female
patients without a medical board-appointed
chaperone present, prosecutors said.
Neustaedter is out of custody on $200,000
bail. He’ll appear in court next on Oct. 22 for
a preliminary hearing.
Earlier this year, a woman bought three
acupuncture sessions with Neustaedter, who

lists himself as a doctor of
Oriental medicine, at his
business on Woodside
Road. The woman had
found Neustaedter’s business using the online discount service Groupon.
The first two sessions
were uneventful, according to prosecutors.
Randall
On June 25, the day of
Neustaedter her third session, the
woman said Neustaedter began fondling her
genitals as he was giving her a massage and
then pressed his erect penis against her arm.
The woman became terrified and left the session, prosecutors said.
When the victim told her friends about the
incident, her friends convinced her to call the
sheriff’s office.
Sheriff’s deputies arrested Neustaedter and

the arrest was published in a local newspaper,
according to prosecutors.
Another victim read the article and decided
to come forward to the sheriff’s office,
describing a similar incident at the hands of
Neustaedter in Dec. 2013, prosecutors said.
A recorded telephone call between
Neustaedter and one of the victims provided
further evidence against him, prosecutors
said.
With the case garnering further news coverage, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said he
anticipates more victims may come forward.
The Attorney General’s Office has filed a
motion recommending the court suspend
Neustaedter’s license to practice, according to
prosecutors.
A
defense
attorney
representing
Neustaedter was not immediately available
for comment.

Anti-abortion group releases video snippet after court win
By Brian Melley
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES — An anti-abortion group
released a snippet of video on Friday showing a
California company executive discussing fetal
tissue for research after a judge ruled the group
could show the footage even if it was illegally
recorded.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Joanne
O’Donnell rejected efforts by StemExpress to
block the videos, though she said the company
likely will prevail in its lawsuit claiming its privacy was violated by an anti-abortion activist
posing as a biomedical company employee.

The company that provides blood, tissue and
other biological material for medical research
said it was considering an appeal, but the littleknown Center for Medical Progress didn’t hesitate to preview its latest covert video targeting
organizations that trade in fetal tissue.
The Irvine, California-based anti-abortion
group reignited the abortion debate after releasing undercover videos last month of Planned
Parenthood officials discussing aborted fetal
organs it provides for research.
Abortion opponents said the video showed
Planned Parenthood was illegally harvesting
and selling the organs. Planned Parenthood said
it did nothing wrong and the videos were decep-

Transient to stand
trial for fatal beating

Local brief

A homeless man was ordered to stand trial
Thursday for allegedly beating another man to
death in San Mateo County last year.
Paul Ahern, 54, is accused of beating
Michael Gonzalez, 46, to death during a fight at
about 8:15 p.m. on June 9, 2014, in the 3100
block of Middlefield Road in an unincorporated part of San Mateo County near Redwood
City.
Witnesses told sheriff’s deputies that Ahern
yelled repeatedly that he was going to kill
Gonzalez, slammed his head against the
ground, punched him in the head, slammed his
head into a car and held him in a choke hold for
10 minutes, according to prosecutors.
When deputies arrived, they found Ahern
standing 3 feet from Gonzalez, who was lying
facedown on the sidewalk, prosecutors said.
Deputies arrested Ahern.
Gonzalez was pronounced dead at the scene.
On Aug. 4, 2014, Ahern was scheduled to
enter a plea for the murder, but criminal pro-

ceedings were suspended to
determine whether he was
mentally competent to
stand trial. On Sept. 30, two
doctors concluded Ahern
was not competent to stand
trial, according to prosecutors.
On Jan. 7, a judge committed Ahern to the
Paul Ahern
California Department of
Mental Health and ordered Ahern be placed at
Napa State Hospital. At the time, Ahern also
consented to involuntary medication at the state
hospital if determined to be necessary by the
hospital doctors, prosecutors said.
Ahern was taken to Napa State Hospital in
March. He has since been returned to court and
has been found competent to stand trial,
according to prosecutors.
Ahern’s defense attorney was not immediately available for comment.

Washington tragedy highlights firefighters’ passion
By Matt Volz and Brian Skoloff
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TWISP, Wash. — One was a college student for whom fighting fires was a summer
job. Another had graduated and wanted to
make firefighting his career. The third was
already a professional firefighter who had
gone back to school to earn his master’s
degree.
Tom Zbyszewski, Richard Wheeler and
Andrew Zajac — the three men who died
Wednesday when flames consumed their
crashed vehicle in Washington state — were
typical of the wildland firefighters who start
out as fresh-faced college kids making as little as $12 an hour then find themselves
hooked on the work.
Four others were injured in the canyon, one
critically. But their firefighting brothers and
sisters had little time to mourn as raging fires
forced entire communities to flee their homes
60 miles away.
The complex of fires grew more than 100
square miles in a single day, creating a situation too chaotic to even track how many
homes had burned.
“We have lost them, but I don’t know how
many,” Okanogan County Sheriff Frank
Rogers said. “We’ve got no idea.”
As conditions worsened, emergency officials ordered evacuations in Okanogan, with
2,500 residents, as well as Tonasket, a community of 1,000 people, and its surrounding
area.
Not everyone who was told to leave was
willing to go.
“I’ve been up for like 40 hours, and I was
very nervous, very concerned because (the
fire) was going to take everything we have, us
and the rest of our friends,” said Al Dodson,

Washington’s Department of Natural
Resources.
“It’s a lot of people who love the place, who
love protecting it, and it’s a great way to
spend the summer,” Smillie said. “It gets
passed down almost as a summer tradition in
a lot of families. Around the camps, you see a
lot of children and grandchildren of some of
our older firefighters.”
The wages are often about $12 to $18 an
hour, and with long days, the pay can add up,
he said.
The three firefighters who died were based
in Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, said
forest spokeswoman Carrie McCausland.
They belonged to specialized crews that

Dems urge Clinton to offer better email explanation
By Ken Thomas and Julie Bykowicz

Hillary Clinton speaks during a town hall meeting in Las Vegas.

WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham
Clinton is facing fresh worries among elected
Democrats about her use of a private email
account while serving as secretary of state, as
new polls signal that the inquiry is taking a
toll on her presidential campaign.
The Democratic front-runner’s campaign
has taken steps to defend her against allegations she may have put classified information
at risk by using a private email account and
server, arguing she never sent or received
material considered classified at the time.
Democratic lawmakers said Clinton’s campaign has not adequately explained the complicated nature of the email review and
panned some of her attempts to use humor to
talk about the probe.
Clinton joked at a Democratic dinner in
Iowa last week that she liked the social media
platform Snapchat because the messages disappear by themselves. And she shrugged off
questions about her server being wiped clean,
asking facetiously in Nevada, “Like a cloth or
something?”

“I don’t think the campaign has handled it
very well,” Florida Sen. Bill Nelson told the
Associated Press on Thursday. “I think the
advice to her of making a joke out of it — I
think that was not good advice.”
Nelson said if Clinton had received information that should have been labeled classified or top secret, the person sending the
email would bear the responsibility of making
that clear on the email. “If she is receiving
something on a private email account and it
has no designation, then how would she know
that it is classified?” he asked.
In
Republican-leaning
Kentucky,
Democratic Rep. John Yarmuth warned in an
interview with WHAS-TV in Louisville, “I
still think there is a chance that this could
upend her campaign.”
“I just never feel like I have a grasp of what
the facts are,” Yarmuth said Wednesday.
“Clearly she has handled it poorly from the
first day. And there’s the appearance of dishonesty, if it’s not dishonest.”
The new concerns follow Clinton’s decision
to turn over her server to federal investigators
who are trying to determine if the data on it
was secure.

Decision nearing, Biden games
out mechanics of a run in 2016
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Tucked away at his
family home in Delaware, Vice President
Joe Biden has been huddling with longtime aides and family members, evaluating what it would take to launch a viable
presidential campaign against well-funded Democratic opponents with a huge
head start.
Although Biden has yet to make a decision, his advisers say the vice president
and his associates have started gaming

out mechanics like
fundraising, ballot
deadlines and an
early primary state
strategy. Also under
consideration are the
personal
consequences for Biden
and his family, who
are still mourning

president’s son, Beau Biden, a few
months ago.

Much of the deliberation has taken
place this week at the Bidens’ house in a
secluded, wooded suburb of Wilmington,
said several Biden aides, who requested
anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the meetings publicly. In
recent days, longtime Biden confidantes
Mike Donilon and former Sen. Ted
Kaufman have spent time there, along
with Biden’s grandson, Hunter Biden,
and his sister, Valerie Owens Biden, who
has played a top role in all his previous

CEO of cheating website
says he’s faithful husband
By Julie Watson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN DIEGO — Touting himself as the
“The King of Infidelity,” the founder of the
adultery site Ashley Madison built his livelihood around the unconventional philosophy
that cheating is a natural part of married life
— yet he says he is a devoted husband, and his
wife of 12 years says she would be devastated
if he was unfaithful.
Noel and Amanda Biderman say they do not
practice what they preach but simply are smart
entrepreneurs seizing an untapped market.
“I am printing money, I don’t deny it,”
Biderman told the New York Daily News in
2014. “That’s what happens when you build a
taboo-focused business.”
Their privately held Toronto holding company, Avid Life Media Inc., grossed $115 million in earnings last year, according to tax documents and figures shared by Biderman with
Forbes.
Now divorce lawyers are preparing for a
potential bonanza from the site’s massive
breach that released the information of its subscribers.
It’s a problem the Bidermans say they have
never had to confront because they are in a
monogamous relationship, but they recognize
others do not have that and there is money to
be made from infidelity.
The couple, who have two children, say
there’s nothing wrong in running a site that
allows married people who want to cheat to
connect with others seeking an affair. Users
pay a fee each time they send a message to a
potential lover.

They turned down a request by the
Associated Press to be interviewed for this
story but have spent years appearing on TV
talk shows and making other media appearances to promote their site.
The company says in a statement the hackers should be judged, not Ashley Madison and
its roughly 39 million customers. The hackers
have accused the company of filling the site
with fake profiles and extorting fees for wiping profiles that were never truly deleted.
The company has said it is working on beefing up its security protocol.
“Regardless of the nature of the content, our
customers, this company, and its employees
are all exercising their legal and individual
rights, and all deserve the ability to do so
unhindered by outside interference, vigilantism, selective moralizing and judgment,” the
company said. “The individual or individuals
who are responsible for this straightforward
case of theft should be held accountable to the
fullest extent of international law.”
Noel Biderman has written books espousing
his views on infidelity, including one published in 2011 entitled: “Cheaters Prosper —
How Infidelity Will Save The Modern
Marriage.”
“The reader will be transported to other cultures where infidelity is rampant and yet
divorce is virtually non-existent,” says the
book’s promotional material.
That theory may be put to its biggest test yet
in the aftermath of the breach. Some lawyers
predict they will be flooded with business,
while New York divorce attorney Michael
DiFalco says he believes there will be “a
dozen clients caught by text message for every
client that might get caught this way.”

Ashley Madison faces $578M
Canadian class-action lawsuit
By Charmaine Noronha
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TORONTO — Two Canadian law firms
have filed a $578 million class-action lawsuit
against the companies that run Ashley
Madison after a hacker group’s data breach
exposed some 39 million memberships in the
adultery website earlier this week.
Charney Lawyers and Sutts, Strosberg LLP,
both of Ontario, said Friday that they filed the
lawsuit on behalf of Canadians who subscribed
to Ashley Madison and whose personal information was disclosed to the public. The website, with its slogan “Life is short. Have an
affair,” is marketed to facilitate extramarital
relationships.
The lawsuit, filed Thursday in the Ontario
Superior Court of Justice, targets Avid Dating
Life Inc. and Avid Life Media Inc., the
Toronto-based
companies
that
run
AshleyMadison.com. Its class-action status
“still needs to be certified by the court,” the
statement says.
Ashley Madison did not immediately
respond to requests for comment. It has said

that the personal details exposed in the initial
data leak can’t be used to prove the infidelity
of their clients.
The plaintiff is Eliot Shore, an Ottawa widower. Shore said he joined the website for a
short time in search of companionship after he
lost his wife to breast cancer. He said he never
cheated and never met up with any members of
the site.
Lawyer Ted Charney told the Associated
Press it is the first class-action suit filed against
the companies in Canada.
Missouri lawyers have filed a class-action
lawsuit in United States district court seeking
more than $5 million in damages. U.S. lawyers
filed a statement of claim late last month on
behalf of an unnamed female plaintiff who said
she ponied up $19 so Ashley Madison would
purge her personal information from its website in a process called a “paid-delete.”
The lawsuit argues that the privacy of
Canadian members was breached in July when
hackers infiltrated Ashley Madison’s website
and downloaded private information. The data
breach includes users’ personal names, emails,
home addresses and message history.

WASHINGTON — U.S. government
employees with sensitive jobs in national
security or law enforcement were among hundreds of federal workers found to be using
government networks to access and pay membership fees to the cheating website Ashley
Madison, the Associated Press has learned.
The list includes at least two assistant U.S.
attorneys, an information technology administrator in the White House’s support staff, a
Justice Department investigator, a division
chief, and a government hacker and counterterrorism employee at the Homeland Security
Department. Others visited from networks
operated by the Pentagon.
Federal policies vary by agency as to
whether employees could visit websites during work hours like Ashley Madison, which
could be considered akin to a dating website.
But such use raises questions about what personal business is acceptable — and what websites are OK to visit — for U.S. workers on
taxpayer time, especially those with sensitive
jobs who could face blackmail.
Hackers this week released detailed records
on millions of people registered with the website one month after the break-in at Ashley
Madison’s parent company, Toronto-based
Avid Life Media Inc. The website — whose
slogan is, “Life is short. Have an affair” — is
marketed to facilitate extramarital affairs.
Few connecting from federal networks had
listed government email accounts when subscribing. But the AP was able to trace their

government Internet connections, logged by
the website over five years and as recently as
June. They encompass more than two dozen
agencies, such as the departments of State,
Justice, Energy, Treasury and Transportation.
Others came from House or Senate computer
networks.
Records also reveal subscribers signed up
using state and municipal government networks nationwide, including those run by the
New York Police Department. “If anything
comes to our attention indicating improper use
of an NYPD computer, we will look into it and
take appropriate action,” said NYPD
spokesman Stephen Davis.
The AP is not identifying the government
subscribers it found because they are not
elected officials or accused of a crime.
Many federal customers appeared to use
nongovernment email addresses with handles
such as “sexlessmarriage,” ‘’soontobesingle”
or “latinlovers.” Some Justice Department
employees also appeared to use prepaid credit
cards to help preserve their anonymity but
nonetheless connected to the service from
their office computers.
“I was doing some things I shouldn’t have
been doing,” a Justice Department investigator told the AP. Asked about the threat of
blackmail, the investigator said if prompted he
would reveal his actions to his family and
employer to prevent it. “I’ve worked too hard
all my life to be a victim of blackmail. That
wouldn’t happen,” he said. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was deeply
embarrassed and not authorized by the government to speak to reporters using his name.

Obituary

John Harold Tallett
January 1, 1922 - August 18, 2015
John (Jack) Tallett passed away at his home in Indian Wells, CA
on August 18, 2015 at the age of 93. Jack was born on January
1, 1922 in Waukegan, IL to Harold and Irma Tallett. They lived
in North Chicago where Jack attended the Holy Family grammar
school before attending Waukegan High School. He was a varsity
baseball player in high school and college, where he played at
the University of Notre Dame. He had gone to high school with
Otto Graham who played baseball at Northwestern. Jack loved
telling the story that when he hit two home runs past Otto, Notre Dame beat Northwestern. The
Waukegan newspaper wrote that “Jack Tallett hit them and Otto chased them.” Jack also played
semi-pro baseball during the college summers for the St. Joseph ball club in the Kenosha and
Racine, WI league. Scouts from the major league teams became interested in Jack. He received
a contract offer from the St. Louis Browns of the American League. WWII began and his class
accelerated their schooling by completing a semester in the summer of 1942. He was elected
President of his class during his senior year. With his class, he graduated from Notre Dame in
December of 1942 receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Letters and Law.
Jack was commissioned as an officer in the Army Air Corps and became a navigator of a B-24
Liberator in the 746th Bomb Squadron, 456th Bomb Group. First Lieutenant Tallett and his
bomber group flew 24 missions out of Air Base Stenora near Cerignoa, Italy. On their fifth mission
on December 11, 1944, the aircraft was hit by flack as they started dropping their bombs over a
Nazi marshalling yard in Vienna. They rallied their plane away from the target area and attempted
to return to Italy, but, were pulled eastward with two engines on the same left wing out. The
10-man crew had to bail out over Yugoslavia. His crew parachuted into the village of Daruvar,
friendly territory in a country heavily occupied by the enemy. The villagers and airmen held a
funeral for one of his buddies whose parachute did not open. The airmen were escorted to the
Yugoslavia and Hungary border crossing the Sava River in wooden rafts. They were turned over
to the Russian military and the underground. After a month of traveling by train, boat, and on
foot, they made it to Bucharest, Romania, and finally returned to Bari, Italy to join their bomber
squadron. LT. Tallett earned the Air Medal with Oak Leaf Clusters, The World War II Victory
Medal, the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal, and the Asiatic Pacific Campaign
Medal. After the Victory in Europe, Jack’s squadron returned to the United States to prepare for
the invasion of Japan. The war ended before Jack received his orders to the Pacific.
Jack married Katherine Pfeiffer in Tucson, Arizona in December 28, 1946. Jack entered
University of Michigan Law School where he received his law degree in 1948. He moved to Fresno,
California where he worked for Standard Oil of California until he passed the Bar. The State of
California hired the young lawyer, who worked on State highway right-of-way cases. He and two
other lawyers formed a private practice, Rogers, Vizzard and Tallett, a San Francisco firm that was
involved in the condemnation, real estate acquisition and subsequent litigation on behalf of the
Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART).
Jack was an avid golfer who belonged to and served as a board member of the Peninsula Golf
and Country Club. He also joined the Indian Wells Country Club. In the 1960’s he played in the
Bob Hope Desert Classic in Indian Wells as an amateur. He enjoyed socializing, especially having
family and friends over for a barbeque on his patio. He maintained his quick wit throughout his
life. He liked talking about family history, sports, and politics.
He is survived by his four daughters, Judy Tallett of Palm Desert, Tricia Stromsted (Bob) of
Rowayton, CT, Pamela Franssen (Patrick) of Delray Beach, FL, and Janet Tallett Collins (Kevin)
of San Carlos, CA. He is also survived by his sister Joan Cook of Lake Forest IL, and his nieces
and nephews, Grainger Cook III, Joanne Miller, Bryan Cook, Susie Moore, and Graham Cook.

referendum petitions. Ultimately, the council
opted to rescind the ordinances instead of
placing them on the ballot and is now seeking
to address the community’s interest in being
more involved.
The council will consider outreach methods
such as a citywide mailer, up-to-date postings
on the city’s website as well as via social
media sites, and community engagement sessions where staff will answer questions and
gather feedback. Hearings before the Planning
and Parks and Recreation commissions, and
the City Council will also be conducted.
Some citizens have already raised concerns
about the “Question and Answer” engagement
sessions, instead seeking town hall meetings
and a working group that includes members of
the public.
Vice Mayor Eric Reed, who serves on a
council subcommittee that drafted the amendments, said the outreach proposal is not set in
stone and looks forward to discussing how to
proceed.
“The whole point of Tuesday’s discussion is
to figure out what the right direction is. We
have some proposals on the table, but the pro-

posals are plastic. It’s going to take a discussion to figure out what’s the best way to get
public input to make these zone text changes
the best they can be,” Reed said.
The ABC group submitted a letter outlining
what they believe is a more inclusive, “bottom-up” process that first identifies any problems with the ordinances, prioritizes the
issues and then breaks them down into categories. It also suggests forming an advisory
committee, conducting a public survey and
analyzing potential impacts.
Since the council met earlier this month,
Belmont resident and ABC member Daniel
Pierce said he’d like to see a process that is
community driven and fact based.
“Have it be a legitimately bottom-up
process in which the public can meaningfully
shape what comes up,” Pierce said. “Q-and-A
public information sessions are a way for the
council to communicate about and justify
what they’ve already decided to do. … Ask
Belmont Citizens does not consider that a
meaningful level of public participation, simply telling people what they’re going to do.”
Reed agreed it’s critical to be mindful that
the community wants to be involved and
hopes with more outreach, the amendments
will be further improved. However, as zoning
ordinances can be complex technical documents, Reed stressed the importance of making sure everyone is educated on what the
California is already seeing twice as many
fires this year and the season hasn’t even
reached its peak, which typically occurs in
September and October, Tolmachoff said.
“This fire season has definitely lived up to
everyone’s predictions so far,” said Santa
Clara County Fire Department Deputy Chief
of Operations Joe Parker.
Locally, fire officials from the Bay Area
say their departments are beginning to feel
the impact of increased fire activity across
the state.
“It’s certainly putting a strain on the overall mutual aid system because of the number
of firefighters out on the line,” Alameda
County Fire Chief David Rocha said.
When the Tesla fire broke out earlier this
week near Livermore, Rocha said the depart-

amendments actually entail.
“What’s really key is making sure that the
people who have concerns about the zone text
amendments, that we’re all speaking the same
language. That we’re all understanding what
the proposals do and do not do,” Reed said.
“And I don’t think we’re there yet. So I think
the public outreach process contains a very
important education component that will
make, I believe, many people feel a lot better
about the proposed changes.”
Another concern raised by the ABC group
is that the nearly 40 amendments covering
ment put out a request for assistance from
other fire agencies, but those agencies
weren’t able to immediately send the help
they needed.
“We were pretty thin on resources when
the fire started,” Rocha said, who said that
can make a big difference in firefighters’
ability to battle the blaze.
As of Friday morning, the Tesla fire was
roughly 70 percent contained at 2,500 acres.
Firefighters from the Contra Costa County
Fire Protection District have already been
called out for mutual aid 18 times since the
end of July, when fire activity picked up
statewide, said Fire Marshal Robert
Marshall.
A total of 26 firefighters, from the district’s
roughly 250, have gone out to fight fires
across the state, Marshall said. Although it
varies from day to day, those numbers are
consistent with those seen by the Alameda
and Santa Clara county fire departments,
according to data each agency provided.
The San Francisco Fire Department has
sent 43 firefighters since July 22 on
statewide mutual aid requests, according to
spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge.
Marshall said he’s noticed that the personnel they send to fires across the state are
gone for longer periods of time this year.

distinct topics were bundled together. As part
of the workshops, the council will consider
breaking down the review process into five
categories — single-family design review
guidelines, trees, parking, secondary dwelling
units and a floor area cap impacting how large
a home can be.
“I think what’s important for us to do is to
allow people to mentally separate out the different issues,” Reed said. “When people talk
about 40 changes, the reality is there are five
main buckets. So that is where I think we need
to gather more input, is in these five buckets.”
While mindful of those who want more
input, Reed noted the city did conduct outreach and hosted public meetings while developing the initial changes that numerous residents supported. Now, he hopes this will be an
opportunity to improve.
“I don’t want anyone to forget that this was
a topic at over 10 different public meetings.
So this in my mind, is continuing public outreach,” Reed said. “And see if we can alter
these zone text amendments to be a win win
for everybody.”

Talmadge said firefighters are gone for
approximately 10 days on average.
“These guys have families and kids and all
of that,” Marshall said.
In the more remote areas of the state,
Marshall said cell phone service is often not
available, so just keeping in contact with
family can be hard.
“Just being out in these fires can be
exhausting as well,” Marshall said.
When firefighters can’t work their normal
shifts, either because they are battling blazes
elsewhere in the state or are recovering from
fighting fires, others have to take their place
and they get fewer days off between shifts,
fire officials said.
If there’s any silver lining, Parker said it’s
that the increased activity gives firefighters
more experience battling wildfires that they
can then bring back home.
If current weather patterns hold, Parker
said they’ll get a lot more experience in the
coming months.
“It’s going to keep up until the weather
changes significantly. A smattering of rain is
not going to do the trick,” he said. “The fuels
are drought-stressed and we are aware of the
bigger potential not only of an easier start to
fires but also the energy and heat released
from the fires will be greater.”

UNESCO chief: IS systematically destroying heritage sites
By Karin Laub and Albert Aji
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DAMASCUS, Syria — Islamic
State extremists in Syria and Iraq are
engaged in the “most brutal, systematic” destruction of ancient sites
since World War II, the head of the
U.N. cultural agency said Friday —
a stark warning that came hours
after militants demolished a
monastery with ancient foundations
in central Syria.
The world’s only recourse is to try
to prevent the sale of looted artifacts, thus cutting off a lucrative
stream of income for the militants,
UNESCO chief Irina Bokova told
the Associated Press.
Recent attacks have stoked fears
that IS is accelerating its campaign
to demolish and loot heritage sites.
On Friday, witnesses said the militants bulldozed St. Elian Monastery
which houses a fifth century tomb
and served as a major pilgrimage
site. Days earlier, IS beheaded an
81-year-old antiquities scholar who
had dedicated his life to overseeing
the ruins of Palmyra in Syria, one of
the Middle East’s most spectacular
archaeological sites.
Since capturing about a third of
Syria and Iraq last year, IS fighters
have destroyed mosques, churches
and archaeological sites, causing
extensive damage to the ancient
cities of Nimrud, Hatra and Dura
Europos in Iraq. In May, they seized
Palmyra, the Roman-era city on the
edge of a modern town of the same
name.
“We haven’t seen something similar since the Second World War,”
Bokova said of the scope of the IS
campaign against ancient sites. “I

think this is the biggest attempt, the
most brutal systematic destruction
of world heritage.”
Bokova said recent images of
archaeological sites under IS control
in Iraq and Syria show signs of
widespread illegal digging and looting. “If you look at the maps, the
photos, the satellite pictures of it,
you will not recognize one place,”
she said. “It is just hundreds of holes
all around them.”
There is very little the world can
do to stop the extremists from
inflicting more damage, she said,

White House: No.
2 IS leader killed
in U.S. airstrike
By Darlene Superville and Hamza Hendawi
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAK BLUFFS, Mass. — The No. 2 leader of the Islamic
State militant group was killed in a U.S. military airstrike in
Iraq earlier this week, the White House said Friday.
Ned Price, a spokesman for the White House National
Security Council, said Fadhil Ahmad al-Hayali was traveling in a vehicle near Mosul, in northern Iraq, when he was
killed Tuesday.
As the senior deputy to IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi,
al-Hayali was the primary coordinator for moving large
amounts of weapons, explosives, vehicles and people
between Iraq and Syria, where IS militants control vast
amounts of territory.
The United States is leading a coalition of countries that
have spent the past year striking at IS militants, weaponry
and machinery from the air but has made little progress in
meeting President Barack Obama’s goal to “degrade and
destroy” the group, which has also beheaded hostages,
including some Americans.
Al-Hayali oversaw the IS in Iraq, where he planned operations over the past two years, including an offensive the
group launched in Mosul in June 2014. He was a member of
al-Qaida in Iraq, the predecessor group to IS.
Also killed in Tuesday’s airstrike was an IS media operative known as Abu Abdullah.
Price characterized al-Hayali’s death as a blow to the
organization because his influence spanned finance, media,
operations and logistics for the group. But his removal from
the scene is unlikely to affect IS operations or weaken the
group and will most likely lead to even tighter security and
secrecy around al-Baghdadi, whom Iraqi intelligence officials say has mostly kept out of sight since he was wounded
in an Iraqi airstrike near the Syrian border.
The IS leader uses hand-delivered mail to communicate
with leaders of the group, shunning the use of more traceable telephones or email. He has recently, according to the
officials, brought to his inner circle former fellow inmates
from his time at the U.S.-run detention facility known as
Bocca in southern Iraq, where he was held nearly 10 years
ago.

but stopping the trafficking in artifacts must be a priority.
Bokova spoke hours after IS posted photos on social media showing
bulldozers destroying the St. Elian
Monastery near the town of
Qaryatain in central Syria. The
group had captured the town in early
August.
A Qaryatain resident who recently
fled to Damascus said militants leveled the shrine and removed church
bells. The man, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear his relatives still in Qaryatain might be

harmed, called on the United
Nations to protect Christians and
Christian sites.
Osama Edward, the director of the
Christian Assyrian Human Rights
Network, said shelling of the area by
Syrian government troops over the
past two weeks had already damaged the monastery. “Daesh continued the destruction of the
monastery,” said Edward, using an
Arabic acronym for the Islamic
State group.

According to Edward, Mourad sheltered both Muslim and Christian

Activists said that shortly after
capturing Qaryatain, the Islamic
State group abducted 230 residents,
including dozens of Christians.
Activists said some Christians were
released, but the fate of the others is
still unknown.
Bokova said in a statement that
“the intentional targeting and systematic destruction of the cultural
heritage of Syria is reaching
unprecedented levels” and that the
militants’ campaign “testifies of an
ideology of hatred and exclusion.”
In another attack, IS militants
beheaded Palmyra scholar Khaled
al-Asaad on Tuesday, hanging his
bloodied body from a pole in the
town’s main square. Al-Asaad, a
long-time site director, had refused
to leave Palmyra after it was overrun
by IS.
Bokova told AP that she believes
al-Asaad was “brutally murdered”
because he refused to divulge where
authorities had hidden treasures
secreted out of Palmyra before the
IS takeover. She would not say
whether UNESCO was aware of
where the artifacts were taken, saying only “we hope they are in safe
places.”
She recalled her first visit to
Palmyra before the outbreak of the
conflict, with al-Asaad escorting
her. “He introduced me to this beautiful Venice of the desert, as it was
called,” she said. “We walked
through the colonnades, more than a
kilometer of beautiful colonnades.”

NEW YORK — Growing concerns
about a slowdown in China shook markets around the world on Friday, driving the U.S. stock market to its biggest
drop in nearly four years.
The rout started in Asia and quickly
spread to Europe, battering major markets in Germany and France. In the
U.S., the selling started early and never
let up. Investors ditched beaten-down
oil companies, as well as Netflix, Apple
and other technology darlings. Oil
plunged below $40 for the first time
since the financial crisis, and government bonds rallied as investors raced
into hiding spots.
“Investors are wondering if growth
isn’t coming from the U.S. or China,
where is it going to come from?” said
Tim Courtney, chief investment officer
of Exencial Wealth Advisors. “This is
about growth.”
By the time it was over, the Standard
and Poor’s 500 index had lost 5.8 percent for the week, its worst weekly
slump since 2011. That leaves the main
benchmark for U.S. investments 7.7
percent below its all-time high — within shooting range of what traders call a
“correction,” a 10 percent drop from a
peak.

Markets began falling last week after
China announced a surprise devaluation of its currency, the yuan. Investors
have interpreted China’s move as a
sign that flagging growth in world’s
second-largest economy could be
worse than government reports suggest. On Friday, they got more bad
news: A private survey showed another
drop in manufacturing on the mainland.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index
dropped 64.84 points, or 3.2 percent, to
close at 1,970.89.
The Dow Jones industrial average
fell 530.94 points, or 3.1 percent, to
16,459.75. That’s 10 percent off its
high, a correction.
The Nasdaq slid 171.45 points, or 3.5
percent, to 4,706.04.
That’s unwelcome news for anyone
with a 401(k) invested in stocks, but
they shouldn’t panic and try to time the
market’s swings, said Quincy Krosby,
market strategist for Prudential
Financial.
“The difficult thing is it’s easy to get
out of the market, but it’s difficult to get
back in,” she said. “You can take the
money out now, and then you sit and
wonder ‘wait a minute is the market
going to go up?”’
Traders have been worried about
slowing growth in China and its potential impact on the U.S.
Those worries are valid, said Jeremy

Zirin, head of investment strategy at
UBS Wealth Management.
“But there doesn’t seem to be any
signal that the weakness abroad is slipping into the U.S. economy,” he said.
Investors pointed to other reasons
behind the recent sell-off, such as
falling prices for oil and other commodities as well as the relatively high
prices investors pay for U.S. stocks
compared with corporate earnings.
“All of this is coming at a time when
we haven’t had a correction” in many
years, Zirin said. The last time the market slipped into a correction was in
October 2011.
Until recently, investors seemed willing to shrug off any worrying news,
confident that low interest rates from
the Federal Reserve and rising corporate profits would help push stocks
higher. As a result, big drops were soon
followed by big gains and the market
would continue on its six-year run. The
S&P 500 has more than tripled in value
since the financial crisis.
Roberto Perli, head of global monetary policy research at Cornerstone
Macro, said the market’s recent slump
likely means the Federal Reserve won’t
raise its benchmark interest rate at its
September meeting. Fed officials gathering next month will have to weigh the
global pressures against evidence of a
solid U.S. job market and improving
U.S. economic growth.

Q&A: What a stock market ‘correction’ means to you
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK— The stock market’s steep
decline this week has pushed the Dow Jones
industrial average into what is known as “correction” territory.
Here are some common questions asked
about corrections and what they mean to average investors:

WHAT IS A STOCK
MARKET CORRECTION?
A “correction” is a Wall Street term for
when an index like the Dow industrials or the

Nasdaq - or an individual stock - falls 10 percent from its most-recent high. The Dow lost
530.94 points Friday and closed at 16,459,
which is 10.1 percent below its record close
of 18,312 set on May 19. A correction is not
the same as a bear market, which is defined as
when a stock index or individual stock falls
20 percent from its most-recent peak.

IS THE ENTIRE STOCK
MARKET IN A CORRECTION?
No. In fact, the Standard & Poor’s 500
index, considered a far broader gauge of the
U.S. stock market’s health, is down 7.5 per-

cent from its most-recent high. The Nasdaq is
precariously close to being in a correction,
down 9.8 percent from its most-recent high,
but that is not by definition a correction.

as fears about Greece’s financial condition.

WHEN WAS THE LAST
TIME WE HAD A CORRECTION?

Stock market corrections have historically
happened every 18 months. The fact that the
U.S. market went nearly four years without
one is historically unusual - it is the thirdlongest such streak in the last 50 years,
according to JPMorgan Asset Management.
Even the most bullish of market strategists
will say a correction is ultimately healthy for
a market because it removes some of the froth
and speculation.

The U.S. stock market entered into its last
correction in October 2011, but the market’s
downturn started in late July 2011. That correction was caused by a combination of factors, one being the U.S. government near
breach of its debt ceiling and subsequent credit downgrade from Standard & Poor’s, as well

Barrel of U.S. crude drops below $40
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — A barrel of U.S. crude
oil fell below $40 per barrel for the first
time since the end of the global economic crisis.
Friday’s fall, to $39.86, was just the
latest indicator of a vast shift in the energy landscape over the past year. U.S. Oil
bounced back a bit to close down 87
cents at $40.45, the lowest close since
March 3, 2009.
The price of oil has fallen for eight
consecutive weeks, the longest streak
since 1986. Oil is down 34 percent from
its high of $61.43 this year, and 62 percent from its high of $107.26 last year.
A boom in production has outpaced
growth in global oil demand. The U.S. is

churning out oil at a rate not seen in
decades. Meanwhile, even with sharply
lower prices, Saudi Arabia and other
OPEC nations haven’t cut production.
Production in the U.S. averaged 9.4
million barrels in the four weeks ending
Aug. 14, up nearly 11 percent from a
year ago, according to data released this
week by the Energy Department. U.S.
oil held in storage has reached levels not
seen in at least 80 years. Meanwhile,
OPEC production averaged 31.5 million
barrels a day in July, a three-year high.
Adding to the downward pressure on
oil prices is a steady drumbeat of economic data out of China suggesting that
the world’s second largest economy is
slowing. Data released Friday showed a

further contraction in China’s manufacturing sector and it sent ripples through
global stock markets.
The world’s biggest oil producers are
getting hit by falling prices and pessimism about China and other
economies that have not recovered from
the recession like the U.S. has.
Almost all oil companies, from Exxon
Mobil to BP PLC, have cut spending on
exploration in anticipation of a prolonged period of lower prices. Over the
past 12 months, Chevron shares have
lost nearly 40 percent, while Exxon
shares are down 26 percent. Companies
that primarily drill for oil onshore in the
U.S., such as Continental Resources,
have suffered even steeper declines.

Greek opposition tries to form government but election looms
By Elena Becatoros
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ATHENS, Greece — Greece’s president asked the main opposition party
Friday to try to form a new government,
a day after Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras
resigned and called an early election
next month to deal with a governing
party rebellion over Greece’s third
bailout deal.
The opposition has few chances of
uniting and forming a government,
meaning that after more than five years

of a worsening financial crisis, Greece is
headed for its fifth national election in
six years. Tsipras is widely tipped to win
the vote, though if he fails to secure an
outright majority he could have to seek a
new coalition that could hamper his ability to govern.
Hardline lawmakers in Tsipras’ radical
left Syriza party announced Friday they
were splitting from the party and forming their own anti-austerity movement,
which becomes the third largest group in
parliament.
Outgoing government officials say the
likeliest election date is Sept. 20, just

eight months after Tsipras was elected
on promises to fight creditors’ demands
for spending cuts and tax hikes — terms
he later agreed to in order to secure
Greece a third bailout and keep it from
falling out of the euro.
It will be the third time this year that
Greeks vote, after January elections and
a July 5 referendum Tsipras called urging voters to reject reforms that creditors
were proposing during the bailout negotiations.
Greece’s European creditors seemed
to take the news, which was widely
expected, in stride.

ARE CORRECTIONS A
NORMAL THING FOR THE MARKET?

U.S. safety agency probes
Honda Accord air bag failures
DETROIT — U.S. auto safety regulators are investigating
reports that air bags on some older Honda Accords may not
inflate in a crash.
The probe by the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration covers about 384,000 cars from the 2008 model
year.
The agency says in documents posted Friday that it received
19 consumer complaints that the air bag control computer
failed in the Accord, which then was Honda’s top-selling
model.
A driver in Belleview, Florida, was injured when his car hit a
concrete wall at 50 miles per hour and the air bags didn’t
inflate, according to a complaint filed with the agency. Several
others complained that the computer had to be replaced to fix
the problem and they were charged around $500.
“This also means that the safety of the vehicle passengers
and operators are in jeopardy and potentially face serious injury
or death,” another complainant wrote. People filing complaints
are not identified in the agency’s database.

US Airways to skip
Pittsburgh for ceremonial final flight
PITTSBURGH — A former county executive says US
Airways is insulting the city that helped give it its start.
A ceremonial final flight for US Airways Flight 1939 is slated for Oct. 16 and will land in Philadelphia; Charlotte, North
Carolina; Phoenix; and San Francisco. It notably ignores
Pittsburgh, the city where the airline began.
US Airways recently merged with American Airlines, which
is based in Fort Worth, Texas. An American Airlines
spokesman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that Pittsburgh
isn’t a hub for the airline.
Former Allegheny County Executive Jim Roddey said
Thursday the snub represented “maybe the last and final
insult.”

Houston’s Fiers no-hits Dodgers
By Kristie Rieken
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HOUSTON — Mike Fiers has
pitched the second no-hitter in the major
leagues in nine days, leading the
Houston Astros to a 3-0 victory over the
Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.
Fiers (6-9) struck out Justin Turner on
his 134th pitch to end it and threw his
glove high into the air for his first career
complete game and the fifth no-hitter in the

big leagues this season. Seattle’s Hisashi
Iwakuma tossed a no-no on Aug 12.
Astros executive Nolan Ryan, who
threw a record seven no-hitters, applauded from a suite as Fiers was mobbed by
his teammates near the mound after finishing the 11th gem in Astros history.
“Oh man, this crowd was going insane,”
Fiers said. “It got me pumped up. I felt
great.”
Cole Hamels with Philadelphia, San
Francisco’s
Chris
Heston
and

Washington’s Max Scherzer also have
thrown no-hitters this season.
A night earlier the Astros were on the
wrong end of a gem, getting just a fifthinning single against Tampa Bay’s Chris
Archer.
Acquired by the Astros at the trade deadline to help with their playoff push, Fiers
was stellar in his first two starts for
Houston. This was something else, though.

Harrison fumbles
away key lesson
for his two sons

J

ames Harrison made his kids give
their trophies back. There’s no
reward, the Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker insisted, just for showing up.
Sorry, James, you got that one wrong.
Rest assured, his 6- and 8-year-old sons
will get plenty of experience dealing with failure over the course of their lives. They’ll
come to learn soon enough what a dog-eatdog world it is out
there. No need to
deprive them of this bit
of pride and accomplishment, even if they
received their trophies
merely for taking part
in a camp.
We’ll take that over
the alternative, the winat-all-costs mindset on
display at Friday at the
Little League World
Series, which endured a
cheating scandal just
last year, where there’s never a shortage of
overbearing parents and 11- and 12-year-old
kids potentially ruining their arms with curveball after curveball.
“Participation in youth sports has been
declining steadily over the last decade,”
said Rick Eckstein, a sociology professor at
Villanova University. “If giving kids a trophy for showing up and trying to improve
keeps them involved, then it is a good
thing.”
Harrison, still going strong in the NFL at
age 37, stirred up a national debate when
he revealed that he wouldn’t let his kids
receive a trophy until they had done something to earn it.
“I came home to find out that my boys
received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies!” Harrison ranted on
Instagram. “While I am very proud of my
boys for everything they do and will
encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN
a real trophy.”
In fairness to Harrison, it’s not surprising

Madison Bumgarner hit his fifth home run and earned his 15th win of the year in the Giants’ 6-4 win in Pittsburgh Friday night.

Giants power past Pitt
By Will Graves
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PITTSBURGH — The San Francisco
Giants brought in Marlon Byrd to help an
offense in serious need of jolting.
Maybe finding a way to get Madison
Bumgarner in the batter’s box semi-regularly would help too.
Bumgarner smashed his fifth homer of
the season and Byrd drilled his 20th in his
first game with the defending World Series
champions as San Francisco held off the
Pittsburgh Pirates 6-4 on Friday night to
climb within 1 1/2 games of the Los
Angeles Dodgers for first in the NL West.
Bumgarner homered in his last start and

added a pinch-hit single on Tuesday. Facing
Pittsburgh’s Jeff Locke, Bumgarner
crushed a fastball 418-feet over the wall in
left field in the second inning, a two-run
shot that gave the Giants an early four-run
lead and all the cushion the 2014 World
Series MVP would need to improve to 156.
“That homer he hit was loud,” Byrd said.
“He can swing it. That’s like having nine
hitters up there when he’s pitching.”
Of course, Bumgarner is in no danger of
losing his day job even if he wasn’t quite as
sharp as he was in his last appearance at
PNC Park, a four-hit shutout in the 2014
NL Wild Card game last fall that served as
the springboard to one of the greatest postseasons in baseball history and propelled

the Giants to a third championship in five
years.
He labored through the first two innings
before retiring 14 straight at one point
before leaving with one out in the seventh.
Bumgarner gave up three runs on six hits
with a walk and six strikeouts as the Giants
improved to 17-3 in Bumgarner’s last 20
starts after Aug. 1.
“Command wasn’t as good as we would
have preferred but it certainly was good
enough to compete,” Bumgarner said.
Then again, the way Bumgarner is swinging the bat at the moment, near perfection
on the mound is hardly required. He leads

SANTA CLARA — Jimmie Ward is

Not that it’s even noticeable.

Just this week, Ward joined the full

team drills at training camp — and getting used to his special new footwear
has been as big of an adjustment as anything as he tries to stay on the field for
his second NFL season.
“At the end of the day, it’s all in my
mind,” Ward said. “It feels like I have
no problems so far since I’ve been wearing it.”
A padded, plastic casing resembling a
clam shell goes over his sock and covers
the surgery area to keep his foot in
place.

Coach Jim Tomsula refers to the shoe
as a “turtle shell.”
Ward is moving well, looks physically strong and hardly seems bothered by
the foot. Even after all the frustration of
two fractures and surgeries in an eightmonth span last year.
“Those actions can tell you where
his mindset is,” Tomsula said. “He’s

Woods shoots 65 to claim co-lead at Wyndham
By Joedy McCreary
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Tiger Woods
signed up for his first Wyndham
Championship knowing a win would definitively keep his season from ending.
He’s halfway there.
Woods shot a 5-under 65 on Friday to share
the second-round lead with rookie Tom Hoge.
“I’m only at the halfway point,” Woods
said. “Only 36 holes. We’ve still got a long
way to go.”
Woods and Hoge were at 11-under 129.
Hoge shot a 67.
The sport’s biggest name put himself in
prime position to contend for his first victory
in more than two years, one that would send
him into the FedEx Cup playoffs.
Woods followed his best round since 2013
— a first-day 64 — with one almost as good.
He made his big move up the leaderboard
on the back nine, with birdies on Nos. 12 and
13 and an eagle on the par-5 15th that gave
him a share of the lead.
“I just couldn’t get anything out of my
rounds (before this tournament) and a couple
lucky bounces here, take advantage of those
opportunities — it’s just the flow,” Woods
said.
Now he’ll spend Saturday playing with an
unfamiliar rookie. When asked if he would
recognize Hoge to see him, Woods responded: “No, I wouldn’t. What is it, or him?”
“I look on the Champions Tour leaderboard

Tiger Woods

and I know every one of
those guys because I
played against them and I
played
with
them,”
Woods said. “Now I come
out here, I don’t really
know a lot of people.”
Davis Love III and
Chad Campbell were a
stroke back. Campbell
shot 65, and the 51-year-

old Love had 66.
Brandt Snedeker matched the tournament
record with a 61 that put him in a group of six
players two strokes behind Woods and Hoge.
But for the second straight day, the big
story at Sedgefield Country Club was Woods.
He missed the cuts in the last three majors
and hasn’t finished better than a tie for 17th at
the Masters. At No. 187 on the FedEx Cup
points list, he would definitely crack the top
125 with a win and qualify for the Barclays
next week in New Jersey. Depending on how
the math works out, a solo second-place finish also might be enough.
He took advantage of some prime scoring
conditions during the first round, shooting
that 64 on a course softened by showers that
morning. That left him two strokes off the
lead.
And then, playing under a hot afternoon
sun that sped up those undulating greens,
Woods almost matched it.
“I wasn’t quite as sharp as I was yesterday,”
he said.

He capped that run of consecutive birdies
with a 25-foot putt on the 13th that drew a
mighty roar from the huge gallery.
Then came his eagle.
He placed his second shot about 10 feet
behind the hole and, after his downhill putt
fell into the hole, he followed with his trademark fist pump.
And as strong as his round was, it also easily could have been even better.
He settled for birdie on the par-5 fifth when
his 10-foot eagle putt lipped out, then missed
a 15-foot birdie putt on the next hole. He left
a 10-foot birdie putt an inch from the hole on
the ninth.
“I’ve shot 59 and I left a couple shots out
there,” Woods said. “The great thing about
golf, you can always get a little bit better.”
Love, a former University of North
Carolina player whose two wins in the tournament came across town at Forest Oaks
Country Club, played a practice round with
Woods on Tuesday. Several times this week,
Woods has referred to pointers Love gave
him, notably
Love reeled off three straight birdies early
in his round before closing with 10 straight
pars.
“It will look boring on the card ... but I
made some nice putts for par, and some good
up and downs, and kept the round together,”
Love said.
Hoge shared the first-round lead with
William McGirt and two-time heart transplant recipient Erik Compton.

Trea Turner debuts for Nationals

By Michael Wagaman

WASHINGTON — The Nationals believe Trea
Turner can help them catch the NL East-leading
Mets, even if it’s not quite clear how just yet.
The 22-year-old shortstop, one of baseball’s top prospects, made his major league
debut Friday, showcasing
his speed and experiencing his first replay
review in Washington’s
10-3 loss to the Brewers.
“I thought I was going
to be more nervous,” said
Turner, who went 0 for 2
after entering the game as
part of a double-switch in
Trea Turner
the seventh inning. “But
at the same time, I felt like I was doing some
uncharacteristic things. I felt like I couldn’t
control my body sometimes.”
Turner was called up from Triple-A
Syracuse to replace Tyler Moore, who was
placed on the 15-day disabled list. He was
batting .322 with eight home runs and 54
RBIs and 29 stolen bases in 116 games
between Double-A and Triple-A.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND — Drew Smyly pitched into the
sixth inning for his first win in more than 11
months and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the
Oakland Athletics 2-1 on Friday night.
Making his second start since missing
more than three months with a torn labrum
and tendonitis in his pitching shoulder,
Smyly (1-2) gave up seven hits and struck out
two in 5 2-3 innings.
He worked out of a pair of jams and pumped
his fist after striking out Billy Burns to end
the fifth. It was an emotional moment for the
Rays veteran pitcher who last won on Aug.
27, 2014.
Tampa Bay’s bullpen, which has struggled
on this 10-game road trip, had its problems
again. Closer Brad Boxberger gave up three
consecutive singles in the ninth and allowed
the A’s only run before getting Billy Burns to
pop out for his 30th save.
Desmond Jennings drove in both runs for
Tampa Bay with an RBI single in the second
and a home run in the ninth.

runs (five) and RBI (nine) and even came off
the bench against St. Louis on Tuesday and

This time around, he had plenty of help.
San Francisco came in averaging just 1.5
runs through the first four games of its current road trip but bettered that in the first

Grady Sizemore was
stranded at second after
hitting a leadoff double in
the sixth. Tampa Bay
loaded the bases in the
fifth and seventh but
failed to score each time.
The A’s also had problems offensively and
Drew Smyly wasted a strong outing by
starter Chris Bassitt.
Bassitt (1-5) allowed one run and six hits
over 6 2-3 innings but took the loss, his first
since July 30.
Logan Forsythe drew a leadoff walk in the
second, moved to second on a wild pitch and
scored on Jennings’ single.

Trainer’s room
Ike Davis will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a torn hip labrum. Davis, who
missed 33 games earlier this year with a

inning alone against Locke (6-8). Byrd,
batting fifth behind Buster Posey, wasted
little time winning over his new teammates.
The 37-year-old is no stranger to packing
his bags. It’s part of the deal when you play
for nine teams across 14 years. He needed
all of one at bat to become a hit with the
Giants, drilling a Locke offering into the
seats in left to cap a three-run first. Byrd has
homered at PNC Park for five different clubs
during his nomadic career.
Byrd hit a deep two-run shot to left
against Locke in the first. He later singled
and doubled and is hitting .361 against
Pittsburgh this season, with six home runs.

Cowboys concerned with 49ers’ turf MLB, players’ union
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OXNARD — Dallas owner Jerry Jones
suggested Friday that the Cowboys could sit
quarterback Tony Romo and other starters
for a preseason game in San Francisco over
concerns with the troublesome turf at Levi’s
Stadium.
Jones made his comments in a radio interview a day after coach Jason Garrett said,
“I’m confident that the league will make
sure that field is safe for everybody to play
or we won’t play the game.”
The outspoken Jones later softened his
remarks when he met with reporters, saying
he has “such respect for what that organization is and what they are going to get done.”
The Cowboys and 49ers play Sunday
night.
San Francisco coach Jim Tomsula moved
some practices out of the stadium early in
training camp after large chunks of sod came
loose. There were similar issues when the
stadium debuted last season.
The turf was replaced after two Taylor
Swift concerts on Aug. 14-15. Stadium operations chief Jim Mercurio has said it will be
replaced as needed during the season, perhaps as many as six or seven times.
The year-old, $1.3 billion stadium is set to
host the Super Bowl in less than six months.
The NFL is expected to install its own field
and is already in regular communication
with the 49ers.
“I’m not worried about it,” 49ers safety
Eric Reid said. “I trust our guys. They take
great care of the field. Our practice field is
amazing, so I trust they’ll get our playing
field in that type of shape, too.”

NFL brief

USA TODAY SPORTS

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones suggested QB
Tony Romo could sit out Sunday’s game at
Levi’s Stadium due to concerns about the turf.
Garrett said he was planning a walkthrough at the stadium Saturday, a rarity for
a preseason game. He also recalled NFC
championship games between the Cowboys
and 49ers at rain-soaked Candlestick Park in
the 1990s, when he was a quarterback for
Dallas.
“I remember they used kitty litter on the
field one year and all of that,” Garrett said.
“What’s our role in this whole thing? Make
sure your cleats are right. Players get out
there early, make sure you’ve got the right
gear on so you can go be your best.”

Redskins acquire TE Carrier
from 49ers for undisclosed pick

Continued from page 11

WASHINGTON — The Redskins acquired
tight end Derek Carrier from 49ers on Friday.
Carrier played in 11
games for the 49ers last
season, his third in the
league, making nine
catches for 105 yards. He
was originally signed by
Oakland in 2012 as an
undrafted free agent out
of Beloit.
Washington was in
Derek Carrier need of depth at tight end
after losing two of its top
three players at the position to season-ending
injuries: Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen.
The Redskins gave the 49ers an undisclosed draft choice for Carrier.

shoe. Jimmie worked some at the start, he’s
working at the safety right now and we’ll get
him in that way. That’s our plan.”
Cornerback Tramaine Brock, one of two
expected starters with newcomer Shareece
Wright, has been playing the nickel cornerback spot while Ward is working with the
third-team safeties. He was drafted to play in
nickel packages, so he is not only coming
back from injury but also switching back to
his old college position.
For the time being, at least. As long as he
is playing, Ward will do whatever is asked of
him.
Losing Ward last November was another
blow for a defense that had already seen
now-retired linebacker Patrick Willis go

Jones called the situation “interesting” in
his radio interview and brought up a preseason game in Mexico City in 1994, when he
said there “clumps as big as softballs” in the
Houston Oilers’ 6-0 victory over the twotime defending Super Bowl champions.
“I can’t believe when I look back on it that
we kept playing in Mexico City,” Jones said
in the radio interview.
But Jones backed off considerably with
reporters.
“I don’t want to overblow that because I
have such respect for what that organization
is and what they are going to get done,” he
said. “What I want to do, though, is basically give any consideration to somebody that
is on the fence. Everybody needs field conditions as good as they can get them.”
The Cowboys were already considering
sitting Romo because he could be missing as
many as four of his starting offensive linemen, along with receivers Dez Bryant and
Cole Beasley.
“A lot of that has to do with who we got up
there that are playing in front of him,” Jones
said. “And who is in his supporting cast. If
it’s like I can think it can be, I would like to
see him get some plays.”
Jones said Darren McFadden would make
his Dallas debut after the oft-injured running
back missed the first two weeks of training
camp with a hamstring issue. He had seven
mostly injury-plagued seasons with
Oakland, which took him fourth overall in
the 2008 draft.
NOTES: The Cowboys signed DT Carlif
Taylor and placed T Cody Clay on injury
waivers.
down with a toe injury that ultimately factored into his decision to end his career.
Finding some continuity now will mean a
lot for new defensive coordinator Eric
Mangini’s unit. A top-notch defense has long
defined the Niners, who went 8-8 last season
and missed the playoffs for the first time in
four years following three straight trips to the
NFC championship game.
“He’s coming along good. He’s in the
meeting room taking good notes, he’s understanding the defense,” safety Antoine Bethea
said. “It’s just about him getting on the field,
being able to stay on the field, stay healthy.
He’s anxious to get out there.”
Ward, the 30th overall draft pick in 2014
out of Northern Illinois, finished with 20
tackles and two passes defensed in eight
games as a rookie.
He started all 14 games at strong safety in
his final college season, leading his team
with 95 tackles — 62 solo — with a 10-yard
sack and 10 pass deflections. His first sur-

announce domestic
violence guidelines
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — Major League Baseball can
suspend players with pay when legal charges
are pending in “exceptional cases” under a
new domestic violence policy signed Friday.
The 13-page deal signed Friday by the league
and players’ association, which followed a
series of high-profile domestic violence cases
involving NFL players, allows the baseball
commissioner to issue discipline for “just
cause,” the same standard used under the sport’s
collective bargaining agreement. Discipline is
not dependent on a criminal conviction.
“Major League Baseball and its Clubs are
proud to adopt a comprehensive policy that
reflects the gravity and the sensitivities of
these
significant
societal
issues,”
Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. “We believe that these efforts will foster not only an approach of education and
prevention but also a united stance against
these matters throughout our sport and our
communities.”
The commissioner can place a player
accused of domestic violence, sexual
assault or child abuse on paid “administrative leave” for up to seven days before a
disciplinary decision, which can be
appealed to the sport’s arbitration panel,
chaired by an independent arbitrator. The
commissioner also may defer a discipline

ran the 40-yard dash in a sizzling 4.47 seconds despite his bum foot.
That speed still shows.
“Yesterday was his first real day of practice and he was flying, and I mean flying,”
safety Eric Reid said Friday. “The kid has
wheels and I didn’t even know it because
he’s been hurt. A couple plays and he’s
instantly opening our eyes. He just needs to
keep doing his thing and make some plays.”
Tomsula is taking a cautious approach with
players such as linebacker NaVorro Bowman
and Ward after injuries. The coach didn’t say
Friday who would play in Sunday’s home
preseason game against the Cowboys.
“Jimmie would have rather there never
been a problem with his foot a year, two
years, a year-and-a-half ago,” Tomsula said.
“The way Jimmie’s handling things and
where he’s at, he’s doing great. ... You’re not
seeing any hitch in the giddy up.”

Djokovic, Serena reach Cincy semifinals BallStatestudent
By Joe Kay
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MASON, Ohio — Novak Djokovic played
his best match. Serena Williams? Well, she
needed to pull a Serena to move on.
Taking two different approaches, the top
seeds at Cincinnati reached the semifinals
on Friday, moving step closer to a title that’s
been tough for either of them to win.
Djokovic
beat
fifth-seeded
Stan
Wawrinka 6-4, 6-1, knocking off the player
who beat him for the French Open title.
Williams followed on center court, struggled with her serve, and had to “pull a
Serena” and rally from behind to beat Ana
Ivanovic 3-6, 6-4, 6-2.
“It’s like when you’re down and maybe
down a break in a set and a set, and you pull
a Serena is when you come back and win,”
she said.
Djokovic has never won at Cincinnati, the
only one of the nine ATP Masters events that
has eluded him. He’s trying to become the
first to win all nine.
Williams won the tournament for the first
time on her sixth try last year, beating
Ivanovic in the final. She lost in the semifi-

nals at Toronto last week
and is using her week in
Cincinnati as a final
tune-up for the U.S.
Open, where she’ll try to
complete a rare Grand
Slam sweep.
This one was ragged.
Williams got only 46
percent
of her first
Novak
serves in play and had 36
Djokovic
unforced errors. After
dropping the first set, she
fell behind 3-4 in the second set. At that point, she
turned it around, breaking Ivanovic’s serve five
times while pulling
away.
“Usually there isn’t a
point where I’m like, ‘Oh,
Serena
I’m going to do this,’ but
Williams
today there definitely
was,” Williams said.
She dominated the last six games.
“Against top players, it’s not over until
you shake the hand,” Ivanovic said. “You
have to fight for each point. Especially

Serena — every time she was down and her
back against the wall, she came up with the
best shots.”
By contrast, Djokovic needed only 63 minutes to reach the semifinals, looking fresh
throughout the match. He had only eight
unforced errors to 27 for Wawrinka, who was
coming off a long, three-tiebreaker win on
Friday.
Djokovic has been bothered by a sore
elbow that affected his serve. The elbow is
better, and so was Djokovic’s serve — 85
percent accuracy during the first set.
“It was the best performance I had so far
this week,” said Djokovic, who is 18-4
career against Wawrinka. “Came at the right
time, against one of my biggest rivals and
the guy I lost to last time we played in the
finals of French Open.”
The two hadn’t played since the French
Open. At 4-4 in the first set, Djokovic
broke Wawrinka and went on to win the
next five games, taking command.
Djokovic will play qualifier Alexandr
Dolgopolov, who upset sixth-seeded
Tomas Berdych 6-4, 6-2. He’s the first
qualifier to reach the semifinals in
Cincinnati since 1994.

Ronda Rousey will fight former boxer Holly Holm on Jan. 2
By Greg Beacham
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES — UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey
will take on former boxing champion
Holly Holm in her next bout on Jan. 2.
Rousey announced the matchup on
ABC’s “Good Morning America” on
Friday. The unbeaten 135-pound star’s
attempt at a seventh title defense will
headline UFC 195 at the MGM Grand
Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
“Definitely my biggest challenge to
date, so I’m super excited about it,”
Rousey told the morning show.
Rousey’s next bout was widely
expected to be a third meeting with
Miesha Tate, the only fighter who has
ever survived a first round with Rousey.
Instead, Rousey (12-0) unexpectedly
chose a meeting with Holm (9-0), who
went 33-2-3 as a professional boxer and
won several championship belts. The
New Mexico native dedicated herself
fully to mixed martial arts in 2013,
training in the Albuquerque gym of
respected trainer Greg Jackson.
“She’s not the average chick that I
would fight,” Rousey said. “She’s the
best striker I’ve ever fought, and striking is something that I learned much

Undefeated UFC sensation Ronda
Rousey surprised with Friday’s
announcement she will take on Holly
Holm in her next bout Jan. 2.
later in my career.”
Holm has won two fights by decision
since joining the UFC earlier this year,
but neither was particularly impressive.
Rousey is counting on Holm’s vaunted
striking abilities to be a draw for the bout
— although Rousey’s utter dominance
has been its own selling point lately.
Rousey has won her last three fights
in a combined 1:04, including a 34-sec-

ond stoppage of Brazil’s Bethe Correia
in Rio de Janeiro on Aug. 1. Rousey is
the only women’s bantamweight champion in UFC history, and the former
Olympic judoka has parlayed her electrifying MMA success into international fame and an acting career.
“I don’t ever expect fights to be easy
and fast,” Rousey told the morning
show. “No one knows exactly how the
fights are going to go, and that’s why
people buy them. ... I prepare for a fiveround war every time I get in there. No
one is easy until after you beat them.”
UFC President Dana White previously said Tate had earned the right to face
Rousey again by earning four straight
victories since her third-round submission loss to Rousey in December 2013.
Rousey, who has a personal dislike for
Tate along with their professional rivalry, had previously discussed Tate as her
next opponent.
Rousey also has been challenged by
Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino, the Brazilian
veteran widely considered the world’s
best female fighter after Rousey. But
Justino has been fighting in the Invicta
promotion as a 145-pound featherweight, and she has expressed reservations about her ability to get down to the
135-pound bantamweight limit.

Smith and Wilson both shaky as Chiefs
hold off Seahawks; Ryan leads Falcons

THE DAILY JOURNAL

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Seahawks quarterback
Russell Wilson and Chiefs counterpart Alex Smith
struggled behind their unsettled offensive lines in
Kansas City’s 14-13 preseason victory over Seattle on
Friday night.
Wilson was 9 of 15 for 78 yards, though most of those
completions came on his final drive, when tight end
Jimmy Graham finally got involved in the game.
Otherwise, Wilson spent his half of work running away
from Chiefs pass rushers Justin Houston and Dee Ford.
At least he wasn’t throwing to the wrong team.
Smith was pressured so much in the first half that he
began rushing his throws, and one of them was picked
off by Bobby Wagner. The Seattle linebacker returned
it untouched 25 yards for a touchdown that gave the
Seahawks a 10-7 halftime lead.
Smith finished 11 of 18 for 81 yards with a touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin.
The game belonged to the backups from there.
Chase Daniel led the Chiefs (2-0) on an 86-yard
drive to open the second half, hitting tight end James
O’Shaughnessy from 1 yard for the score. Daniel has
been sharp in two preseason games, throwing four TD
passes without an interception.
R.J. Archer played better than he did last week for
the Seahawks (0-2), who lost regular backup Tarvaris
Jackson to a high ankle sprain in their loss to Denver.
But Archer was unable to move his team into range of
a winning field goal in the final minutes Friday night.
Seattle center Drew Nowak, left guard Justin Britt
and right tackle Garry Gilliam were new to the lineup

from the preseason opener, joining left tackle Russell
Okung and right guard J.R. Sweezy. They performed
better as the first half wore on, though Gilliam had his
hands full with All-Pro pass rusher Houston.
For the Chiefs, LT Eric Fisher (high ankle sprain) and
RG Jeff Allen (knee sprain) did not dress, nor did their
replacements fare well. Paul Fanaika started at tackle
and was consistently pushed off the line of scrimmage,
and Laurent Duvernay-Tardiff was manhandled at his
guard spot.
Ryan, Falcons starters sharp early in 30-22 loss to
Jets

Falcons 30, Jets 22
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Matt Ryan was sharp
for the second straight preseason game, leading Atlanta
to touchdowns in both of his offensive series in the
Falcons’ 30-22 loss to the New York Jets on Friday
night.
Ryan finished 4 of 5 for 75 yards, including a 60yard completion to fullback Collin Mooney, and a 2yard touchdown toss to Leonard Hankerson. Rookie
Terron Ward also had a 4-yard TD run for the Falcons
(1-1), who carved up the Jets’ starting defense.
Meanwhile, Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets’ offensive
starters were sluggish until facing Falcons backups
midway through the second quarter. New York (1-1)
was sparked by the defense on a safety by first-round
pick Leonard Williams.
Chris Ivory followed less than two minutes later with
a 33-yard TD run, and Fitzpatrick found Brandon
Marshall for a 2-point conversion that cut New York’s
deficit to 14-10.

He didn’t get that far simply by participating.
“I’m not sorry for believing that everything in life should be

Quebec City advances to third
stage of NHL expansion process
By John Wawrow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The Nordiques have advanced to
the third and what’s expected to be
final stage in their bid to return to
Quebec City as an NHL expansion
franchise.
Montreal-based communications
giant Quebecor, which is submitting
the expansion bid, announced the
development on its Twitter account
on Friday, concluding its message
by saying: “The goal: Bring (hashtag)Nordiques back to Quebec
City.”
Quebec’s capital was previously
home to the Nordiques, before they
relocated to Colorado in 1995.
What’s unclear is if Las Vegas —
the second of two expansion-franchise hopefuls — is also moving
forward.
Messages left with the Bill Foleyled group “Vegas Wants Hockey,”
were not returned. Foley is a billionaire businessman who had
secured more than 13,200 season
ticket deposits since February, when
he began exploring the community’s level of interest for professional hockey.

the trophy he received years ago for playing T-ball.
“I am not surprised that Harrison would take this view. As a
professional athlete he lives in an unbelievably competitive
world where finishing second is simply intolerable,” Eckstein
wrote in an email. “But kids should be motivated to play sports
because it builds friendships, challenges them to improve, and,
oh yes, can actually be fun. By focusing too much on winning
and championships, we set kids up to stop participating at all,
lest they be considered failures.
“This is not coddling kids,” he added, “it is treating them
LIKE kids, not tiny adults.”
Or course, the colors of any issue are rarely black and white.
It’s always good to have plenty of gray on hand.
There’s something to be said for teaching our kids to deal
with failure, to use their setbacks as a learning tool, to recognize that they’re going to get knocked down from time to time
but they’ll be stronger when they get back up.
Rebecca “Kiki” Weingarten, a former elementary school
teacher who worked in New York City Mayor Michael
Bloomberg’s administration and now serves as a life coach for
corporations and educators, praised Harrison for sending just

A person familiar with the
process told The Associated Press
that the third stage involves the
NHL reviewing the group’s business plan and revenue projections.
If approved, the league would be in
a position to award an expansion
franchise as early as next month, the
person added.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the NHL
has not provided details of the
process.
The NHL isn’t expected to
expand until 2017-18 at the earliest.
Commissioner Gary Bettman
has proposed an expansion fee of
$500 million. That’s a significant
jump from the $80 million fee
paid by the Columbus Blue
Jackets and Minnesota Wild,
when the NHL last expanded to 30
teams in 2000.
The third phase comes after the
NHL examined each market and
both groups’ arena plans
In Quebec City, the publicly funded, 18,259-seat Videotron Centre is
set to open next month. In Las
Vegas, a multipurpose arena under
construction near the Las Vegas
Strip is set to open next spring.

the right message to an entitled society that often buckles at
the first sign of adversity.
In essence, she believes we all need the sort of tough love
that Harrison was doling out to his kids.
“It’s startling to see what’s happening with kids that grew up
with this attitude of getting a trophy because they appeared,”’
she said Friday in a telephone interview. “I hear it all the time.
Employees think they’re doing something just because they
showed up.”
She goes a step further, saying that sort of parenting produces young adults who don’t want to hear anything except
what they already believe, the sort of attitudes that have led
comedians such as Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock to give up
playing college campuses because of audiences that are too
focused on political correctness.
“Something’s happening where parents do not want their
kids to deal with anything negative, to have no negative feedback,” Weingarten said. “Well, you don’t win at everything all
the time. You just don’t. That’s competition. If you want to
start a business ... you have to shove some people out of the
way. I don’t mean that in a bad way. But you have to learn to
sling some arrows.”
Point taken.
Still, there’s a balance to life that Harrison fumbled away
with his sons.
Yes, there’s always going to be winners and losers in life.
But there’s nothing wrong with praising our kids — or even
giving them a trophy — when they at least enter the game.

Montoya starts final drive for IndyCar title at Pocono
By Dan Gelston
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PHILADELPHIA — Juan Pablo Montoya
turned the Philadelphia Eagles’ training camp
parking lot into a showcase for some pace-car
burnouts.
Montoya screeched and spun the poor
Pocono Raceway car — with defensive back
Fletcher Cox in the passenger’s seat —
through the lot and left behind circular trails of
skid marks and the scent of burnt rubber.
Montoya hopped out, beaming: “Not bad.”
It’s the kind of show he could put on if he
clinched the IndyCar championship — and the
Colombian star is the driver to beat down the
stretch.
Montoya, the Indianapolis 500 champion,
has had a banner year in his second season
driving for Team Penske. He holds a ninepoint lead in the series standings as the series
shifts Sunday to the 2 1/2-mile triangle at
Pocono Raceway. When it’s over, the title will
be decided Aug. 30 in the season finale on the
road course at Sonoma Raceway.
“Let’s be honest, we’ve had an awesome
year,” Montoya said Friday. “We’ve got a 500
win. We’ve done everything. If we win the
championship, it’s a plus. Do we deserve it?
Yeah. But deserving it and getting it are two
different things.”
Montoya didn’t want to come out and proclaim himself the driver to beat — he said veteran champ Scott Dixon was his biggest threat
— but he was confident he could win it all just
two years into his open wheel comeback.
“You never count it before it’s yours,”
Montoya said, “but things are going well.”
Montoya was the hottest driver in IndyCar
until a little bump the last two races let other
drivers storm back into the title picture.
It’s a three-contender strong sprint to the finish, with at least two more drivers lurking
nearby to shake up the standings and steal a
championship.
1. Montoya. Team Penske. He won for the
first time in the CART/IndyCar Series since
2000 and had his first major victory since he

won a road-course race at Watkins Glen in
NASCAR in 2010 when he took the checkered
flag last season at Pocono. Montoya won from
the pole and snagged the lead for good when
Tony Kanaan was forced to pit for fuel with
four laps left.
Montoya seemed like he was headed toward
a runaway championship after eight straight
top-10 finishes — the second one in that run
was Indy — stamped the former NASCAR
driver as the heavy favorite.
Graham Rahal has outscored Montoya in
each of the last four races to tighten the lead.
Montoya’s night at Iowa Speedway lasted just
nine laps after his No. 2 car flew into the wall.
Montoya finished 11th at Mid-Ohio in a race
won by Rahal that put the championship up for
grabs with two races left.
Montoya has four wins in 10 career 500mile races — he’s a two-time Indy 500 winner
— has led in all 10 500 milers and his average
finish is 3.3.
He says: “I think I’m really good at setting
up the car on the ovals. I do a really good job
at understanding what the car needs to be
good, and I think that makes a big difference.”

Racing. When Montoya scuffled, Rahal
shined. He has been tough down the stretch
with five straight top 10s. Oh, and two of those
were wins. He took the checkered flag at
Fontana to pair with his Mid-Ohio triumph.
He improved in the standings from Toronto
to Iowa, going 5-4-3-2. Will Pocono park him
at No. 1?
Maybe, but the track has given him fits.
Rahal finished 18th and 19th since the series
returned here in 2013 and he’s never started
better than 14th.
He says: “Ultimately, the most important
thing is to be the champion.”
3. Dixon, 34 points out. Chip Ganassi
Racing. Count out Dixon? Not a chance, mate.
Like Montoya, Dixon had a rough outing at
Iowa (18th) but otherwise had been as consistent as expected from of open wheel’s greats.
He has two wins and the New Zealander has
found a home at Pocono.
He won in 2013 and was fifth last year — a
sign that he should be in the mix in the finale
for a fourth IndyCar championship.
He says: “I think for us, you’re going to hope
for a little bit of bad luck or a mechanical issue

with Juan, but those are generally not seen too
many times in the current racing formula.”
4. Helio Castroneves, 58 points out. Team
Penske. Helio Castroneves has danced his way,
climbed his way, fought the law his way and
raced his way into the IndyCar record book. He’s
done it all — except win the championship.
At 40, Castroneves is running out of years to
fill the lone void on an otherwise sterling
resume.
He’s winless for Roger Penske for the first
time since 2011 and has finished 23rd, 11th
and 15th in three of the last four races. Pocono
could point Castroneves toward the right track
of ending the drought at Sonoma. He was
eighth in 2013 and was runner-up behind his
Team Penske teammate Montoya last year.
He says: “I will do exactly what I did not do
regarding this challenge, because it certainly
didn’t work in the past.”
5. Will Power, 59 points out. Team Penske.
Power is pretty much the last driver who can
stake even a feint claim at winning the championship, but the reigning series champion
needs almost everything to go right for him in
the last two races.
Power, with one win this season, needs a
dash of good luck — and checkered flags — if
he has any chance of defending his championship.
He finished a solid fourth and 10th in two
Pocono races driving for Penske.
He says: “I feel I have a pretty good chance
if I win my last two races.”
6-10. The top 10 drivers in points are still
mathematically eligible for the championship headed to Pocono. With double points
available at Sonoma, any driver within 104
points of the leader after Pocono still has a shot
to win it all.
That means Sebastien Bourdais, Marco
Andretti, Josef Newgarden, Tony Kanaan and
Simon Pagenaud can all dream of hoisting that
championship trophy for at least one more
race. But none of them should power on the
iPad and start typing up notes for a championship speech.

No-hitter on opening day at Williamsport POLICY
By Ben Brigandi

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa.
— Alex Edmondson threw his second no-hitter in eight days and hit a
two-run homer in the first inning to
help Taylors, South Carolina, beat
Cranston, Rhode Island, 7-1 on
Friday in the state’s first ever victory
in the Little League World Series.
Edmondson struck out 15 a week
after striking out 12 in his no-hitter
in the Southeast championship.
Throwing around 80 mph, the
right-hander struck out the side four
times. He struck out 10 straight
between the third and sixth innings
in South Carolina’s first LLWS
game since 1950. Charleston in
1949, and Clinton in 1950, failed to
win games in the state’s only other
appearances.
“No South Carolina team had
been here in 65 years and no team
had ever won a game at the Little
League World Series so it means a
lot. It’s a big deal,” Taylors manager Kevin Tumblin said.
Edmondson also had an RBI sin-

Having never even gotten an out
in the ninth inning in his five-year
career, Fiers was dominant. He

‘Hitman:
Agent 47’
lacks plot Starting fresh
By Emily Shen

By Sandy Cohen
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES — The idea of the hightech, emotionless super-soldier is so popular in movies, it’s practically a convention.
The “Terminator” and “Bourne” franchises, and even last year’s animated “Big
Hero 6,” imagine characters programmed
to kill and the would-be world destroyers
who want to control them.
The same formula is at work in
“Hitman: Agent 47,” a stylized shootem-up based on a video game, of which
no previous knowledge is required.
Rupert Friend plays the titular character: an elite assassin genetically engineered to be smarter, faster, more fearless and less remorseful than ordinary
human sociopaths. Named for the bar
code branded on the back of his head,
Agent 47 is stoic, expressionless and
amazingly efficient at wielding multiple
firearms and using everyday objects as
murder weapons.
Unfortunately, “Hitman: Agent 47”
leans on another familiar Hollywood
convention, this one painfully outdated:
the damsel in distress. It’s always disheartening to see this tired trope employed, but
especially here, where the female protagonist
is clearly as capable as any of her male counterparts. Why must she appear constantly on the
verge of tears? Why does a brilliant woman like
this need saving?
Some moviegoers may not mind the use of this
lazy device — which serves as a catalyst for the
action and ostensibly why we should care — but for
those who do, it’s as frustrating as having a piece of
popcorn stuck between your teeth.
Dogged by fractured memories from her childhood, Katia (Hannah Ware) is searching for
answers. She’s turned the biggest wall in her oneroom apartment into “A Beautiful Mind”-style
mess of maps and photos and newspaper clippings
dotted with push-pins and pieces of string. So singularly focused is she on her search that she sleeps
on a mattress without sheets.
Two men are after her: Agent 47 and the mysterious
John Smith (Zachary Quinto). Because Katia can
sense danger before it happens, she escapes through
her apartment window and heads straight to a shady,
underground guy to secure a fake passport.

Two actors play all parts in funny ‘Irma Vep’ at Cal Shakes
By Judy Richter
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

“The Mystery of Irma Vep,” a.k.a. “Irma
Vep” and subtitled “A Penny Dreadful,” is the
late Charles Ludlam’s spoof of Victorian
melodrama, old-time horror movies and
more.
California Shakespeare Theater has fun
with the show, thanks to direction by Jonathan
Moscone and his versatile two-man cast, who
play all characters of both genders.
The story takes place in Mandacrest, a
spooky country estate owned by Lord Edgar
Hillcrest (Liam Vincent), who has remarried
after the death of his wife three years earlier.
His new wife is Lady Enid (Danny Scheie).
The estate is staffed by Jane Twisden

(Vincent), the housekeeper; and Nicodemus
Underwood (Scheie), the caretaker.
A portrait of Lord Edgar’s first wife, Irma,
looms over the massive stone fireplace. She
and their young son were killed by a wolf, or
perhaps a werewolf.
For various reasons, Lord Edgar, an
Egyptologist, goes to an Egyptian tomb,
where he finds a mummy and takes it to
Mandacrest.
Literary allusions to the likes of James
Joyce, Edgar Allan Poe, Oscar Wilde, Henrik
Ibsen and William Shakespeare abound in the
script, as do cinematic borrowings from
“Gaslight,” “Rebecca” and “Wuthering
Heights.”

A GLORIOUS SKYSCRAPER ON THE
GREAT PLAINS: THE NEBRASKA
STATE CAPITOL’S MAGNIFICENT
MERGER OF ART AND ARCHITECTURE. Set on a square, three-story base, 437
feet on each side, and reaching 400 feet above
a sweeping prairie, the Nebraska State Capitol
in the heart of Lincoln can first be admired
from miles away. Constructed between 1922
and 1932 of Indiana limestone, the building is
home to the Nebraska Supreme Court, the
Nebraska Court of Appeals, and the Nebraska
Legislature. Its richly decorated interior
gleams with images, symbols and icons that
represent the elements of the natural world
and the arc of human history.
HUMAN AND NATURAL HISTORY IN
SCULPTURE, TILE AND MOSAIC.
Roxanne Smith, Tourism Supervisor of the
Office of the Capitol Commission, said:
“Visitors from across the nation and around
the world come to the Nebraska capitol; no
one has ever expressed disappointment.
Comments range from ‘We never expected
this in Nebraska’ to ‘This is much more beautiful than our Capitol’ to a French visitor who
said, ‘We may have bigger, but not better.’
When the guides mention the columns in the
building are solid marble, jaws frequently
drop. It’s a monumental building, made all the
more impressive by the extensive use of
mosaic and sculpture which inspire
Nebraskans and all who enter to work together toward a noble life.”
HEAVEN AND EARTH, ABOVE AND
UNDERFOOT. Floor mosaics in the
vestibule represent the sun, stars, moon and
planets in abstract geometric patterns. The
ceiling shows agricultural products and wild
animals of Nebraska in ceramic mosaic tile.
The Rotunda floor has a central mosaic of the
Earth providing food and water, surrounded
by four smaller medallions which represent
water, fire, air and soil, surrounded in turn by
prehistoric animals that once lived in
Nebraska and birds and insects that still do.
Buffalo, corn, wheat, sunflower and wild
native animal motifs are repeated throughout

the building. The massive balustrade flanking
the main stairway is ornamented with bison
inscribed with American Indian poems and a
gilded frieze shows the “Spirit of the
Pioneers.” The doors to the original Senate
chamber, weighing more than 750 pounds
each, commemorate the cultural contributions
of Plains Indians.
THE NEBRASKA HALL OF FAME.
Many famous and accomplished Americans
have their roots in Nebraska. The second floor
of the Nebraska State Capitol is lined with
busts of members of the state’s Hall of Fame.
Among them are Willa Cather, Red Cloud,
William Frederick Cody, John J. Pershing,
William Jennings Bryan and Edward J.
Flanagan.
A JEWEL IN THE LIBRARY: THE
SPIRIT OF THE PRAIRIE. The capitol’s
law library on the third floor holds the The
Spirit of the Prairie, an 1930 oil on plaster
mural by Nebraska artist Elizabeth Dolan that
depicts a pioneer woman, her two children,
and their faithful dog, gazing eastward,
toward the place they left to come to their new
Nebraska home.
CROWNED WITH GOLD, AND A
VIEW FOREVER. The 14th floor Memorial
Chamber, decorated with eight murals reflecting various aspects of public service, is the
highest publicly accessible level. Four observatory decks offer views of Lincoln from 245
feet above the ground. The tower is crowned
by a golden dome atop of which is a 19-foot
sculpture entitled The Sower, representing the
importance of agriculture to Nebraska. The
dome is symbolic of the sun, and its reflective
surface changes color with the weather.

Lily Tomlin’s in full
glory in bittersweet
and brisk ‘Grandma’
By Jocelyn Noveck
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A movie about a wisecracking grandma and
her teen granddaughter, racing around in a
beat-up car to find $600 by nightfall. You
might think it sounds like any number of
mediocre road comedies out there, full of trite
generational gags and sporting a sappy, all-isforgiven ending.
You’d be very wrong.
“Grandma” is, instead, a brisk, bittersweet
and moving film, rightfully devoted to displaying the singular talent of Lily Tomlin —
especially her striking ability to fuse acerbity
and crankiness with empathy and humanity,
and to find the essential lovability way, way
down at the core of an unlikeable person.
The film, directed and written by Paul
Weitz, is also about abortion, a theme that
could easily have taken over every line and
frame. But somehow, it leaves us thinking
even more about what it means to be someone’s mother, someone’s daughter, someone’s
granddaughter — and what it means to grow
old. Credit for that last part goes to Tomlin
and also to Sam Elliott, who darned near
steals the show in a scene with Tomlin that,
well, they should immediately start showing
in acting classes — to demonstrate what two
actors can convey in just a few minutes about
a lifelong relationship.
Tomlin is Elle, a brilliant poet and professor
who, perhaps due to her facility with words,
doesn’t mince them. We meet Elle in her living room, mid-breakup with her younger girlfriend (Judy Greer). “You were a footnote,”
Elle tells her lover, with resigned honesty
more than spite. But in the shower later,
alone, she weeps.
We soon learn Elle is still suffering the loss
of her longtime romantic partner, Violet,
which explains much of her bitterness. She’s
also clearly at odds with her stressed, workaholic daughter, Judy (Marcia Gay Harden,
pitch-perfect). But when teen granddaughter
Sage (Julia Garner, appealingly natural)
comes knocking, Elle’s ready to help.
Turns out Sage needs an abortion, and fast;

the only free appointment is that evening, and
it’s $600, which has Elle immediately ranting
about how it’s impossible to get a reasonably
priced abortion these days. Sage has no
money, but doesn’t want to bring her judgmental mother into the picture. Elle herself is
fairly broke, scraping by on a college writerin-residence gig. She’s recently paid off her
debt and cut her credit cards into scraps,
which now serve as wind chimes.
Elle is angry — as we see in an unnervingly funny mini-breakdown she has in a coffee
shop — but not at Sage. First, she’s angry at
Sage’s
obnoxious,
good-for-nothing
boyfriend, who has no intention of contributing to the abortion until Elle pretty much
beats him — physically — into submission
and grabs the few dollars he has. They also try
Elle’s old friend Deathy (Laverne Cox, of
“Orange is the New Black”), a tattoo artist
who can only offer a free tattoo.
Elle has one more idea: Karl, an old flame.
She shows up on his doorstep, and at first, it
seems like it’ll be an easy solution. But then
the layers of the onion get peeled back — suddenly, startlingly. Karl’s laconic demeanor
and sexy drawl make it all the more shocking
when his emotion — rage, resentment, and
more — comes gushing forth. The scene is
not to be missed.
Of course, Judy (Harden) eventually must
emerge, and she’s a trip: She works at a treadmill desk, and has espresso running through
her veins. But Judy isn’t the shrew she initially seems. In one of the better scenes, three
generations of women come together for a
moment — very brief — in which it becomes
clear that even in the nuttiest families, there
are bonds that supersede all that craziness.
We won’t spoil the story, but in the end, it’s
just Elle on the screen. As it should be.
Tomlin, at 75, is operating at full throttle, and
she deserves that final shot, all alone.
“Grandma,” a Sony Pictures Classics
release, is rated R by the Motion Picture
Association of America “for language and
some drug use.” Running time: 79 minutes.
Three stars out of four.

Tomlin isn’t buying her own hype
By Nicole Evatt
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES — At 75, Lily Tomlin is
loving the roles coming her way, but not necessarily the spotlight.
Tomlin stars in the upcoming indie film
“Grandma” and recently scored her first lead
actress Emmy nomination for her hit Netflix
series.
“Well, it’s kind of uncomfortable in the fact
that everybody in our show `Grace and
Frankie’ is so good,” said Tomlin of her nomination. “Everybody is great about it and they
tease me about it. So that’s good.”
The veteran comedian teams with Jane
Fonda for the streaming series about two
friends starting over after finding out their
husbands are in love with each other.
Tomlin relished the chance to break new
ground in an industry obsessed with youth.
“That’s what we wanted to do ... to show
(older) women, to show our sexuality, to show
our resourcefulness, our resilience to bounce
back and start over again,” she said.
“`Grandma’ does the same thing.”
In the film, out Friday, Tomlin stars as an
irreverent grandma road tripping around Los

Angeles to rustle up cash for her teenage
granddaughter’s abortion.
Sam Elliott plays Tomlin’s ex-husband in
“Grandma” and joins her for season two of
“Grace and Frankie,” where he’ll play Fonda’s
old flame.
“It’s a treat,” said Elliott, 71, of working
with Tomlin. “I think that we do a real disservice to ourselves and certainly to the audience when we think that these older people,
it’s time to put them out to pasture rather than
embracing what they may have picked up
along the way.”
Dolly Parton recently expressed interest in
reuniting with her “9 to 5” co-stars on “Grace
and Frankie.”
Tomlin said the timing simply isn’t right yet.
“Dolly’s a wonderful person and we’ve
been friends with her ever since `9 to 5,’ all
three of us,” said Tomlin. “We just want to get
`Grace and Frankie’ more established before
we venture into something like that. ... We
don’t have any definite plans right now, but
it’s always in the backs of our minds.”
Though Tomlin is quick to downplay her
recent successes, she joked that she’s finally
starting to believe the hype.

taking his secrets with him. The evil Le Clerq
(Thomas Kretschmann) wants to resurrect the
killer-making program, and he sees Katia as
the key to finding the elusive scientist who
can make it happen.

“Be careful, little girl,” he tells her. “The
world is a dangerous place.”
Never mind that she is a full-grown adult
woman who already knows where to buy a

The story, explained in voiceover during the
film’s opening moments and later by Quinto’s
character, is that Katia’s geneticist father created — and later abandoned — a top-secret
government program to engineer human
killing machines. After his 47th attempt at
perfecting the design, her dad disappeared,

But all you really need to know is that two
killers are after Katia, and she doesn’t know
who to trust. This sets the stage for a series of

fun comes from the two actors, who often make
split-second character changes. It would be
interesting to peer backstage and watch as
dressers help them with their transformations.
Vincent and Scheie are both Cal Shakes
favorites. Here, Vincent tends to play all of his

tends to flounce and mug, as he is wont to do.
This is Moscone’s last hurrah as artistic

chase through a parking garage is especially
thrilling, as is a spectacular gunfight on a spiral staircase illuminated by strobe lights. The
incredible international settings add to the eye
candy.
But the damsel-in-distress trope dampens
the action. Katia is always afraid, even as she
says lines like, “We determine who we are by
what we do.” The soundtrack is so cloying at
times, it highlights the cheesiest dialogue.
Though Katia eventually learns to fend for
herself, she’s forever at the mercy of the men
around her. And shame on the filmmakers for

Jake Johnson on ‘Digging
for Fire’ and batting sixth
By Lindsey Bahr
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES — This story begins
with a rusty gun, a license plate and a bone
of unknown origin.
A few years ago, a half dozen blocks
from the hip Silver Lake wine-tasting shop
where Jake Johnson is enjoying a glass of
Pinot Noir, he and his wife dug up the makings of a mystery novel in the backyard of
their rented house.
His neighbors weren’t surprised and the
police weren’t concerned. So he called a
bunch of buddies and went digging.
The experience “freaked him out” for a
long time, he said with wide-eyed intensity,
perched against the bar in a loose-fitting
Sriracha T-shirt.
“What happens to someone who thinks
there’s a dead body in their backyard?”
asked Johnson. “I wanted to tell that story.”
It’s one of those too-weird-to-be-true
tales that’s made even more bizarre by the
fact that the stylish Silver Lake enclave of
Los Angeles seems like the last place you
might unearth guns and bones.
He’s able to laugh about it now, having
used the experience as the metaphorical
bones for a largely improvised indie movie,
“Digging for Fire,” out in limited release
Friday and on VOD Aug. 25. The buried
objects serve as a catalyst for a funny and
poignant character study about a married
couple and their young kid, who try on an
upgraded life while housesitting for friends
in LA.
Johnson’s character becomes obsessed;
his wife (Rosemarie DeWitt) would rather
not deal with it.
It’s his second movie with indie director
Joe Swanberg. They met through Lizzy
Caplan, who Johnson knew from the Fox
sitcom “New Girl,” where Johnson plays
curmudgeonly but kind Nick Miller.
Caplan was working with Swanberg to

develop the 2013 film “Drinking Buddies,”
a beer-soaked relationship study set in
Chicago. Johnson wanted to spend the
summer in his hometown, but needed convincing.
“(Swanberg) told me he could make a
movie in 16 days — we’d have a couple
IPAs on set and it’d be really fun, really
easy and it’d be good. I told him he sounded like a car salesman,” said Johnson,
pausing to ask the bartender what makes
the rosé pink, without losing his train of
thought.
“I said, ‘I’m a super nice guy until I’m
not. If we get there and you pull the rug
out, we’ll be enemies forever. But if it’s
real, I’m your guy forever.’ It was real.”
Johnson’s a bit of an anomaly in
Hollywood. After struggling for years, his
cast role on “New Girl” has allowed him
the financial freedom to be choosy about
how he spends his time, and, most importantly, who with. Simply, he wants to work
with friends.
He’d just spoken to his agent about this
on the way to the wine tasting.
“I’d rather have less work and less fame,
celebrity and money than not have a lot of
fun working. If I don’t know somebody, or
people who I like and respect don’t vouch
for them, I’m probably not going to do the
project,” he said.
So Johnson sticks with his friends,
including Max Winkler, who he has a production company with, and his “Jurassic
World” director, Colin Trevorrow, who
Johnson met while he was an out-of-work
actor and Trevorrow was a struggling
writer.
So far, it’s working.
“He’s who I think of when I picture a guy
in one of my movies. He sets the tone and
sets the bar for what I’m looking for in a
performer,” said Swanberg.
For “Digging for Fire,” they developed
the story via texting, borrowed “Ed Wood”
screenwriter Larry Karaszewski’s LA home

better understand the whole
improvised experiment. Sam
Elliott, Judith Light, Brie
Larson, Ron Livingston and
Melanie Lynskey are also in the
cast.
Johnson wants to keep making
movies with Swanberg, selffinancing them, and using the profits to make another. They even made
one this summer.
He thinks of it as gambling. He
likes gambling. He also knows
that he’ll have to make some
compromises if his day job
ever goes away.
“Deep down, unfortunately, I’m not a bleeding heart artist. On my
death bed, it’s not
going to be about my
films. It’ll be about
my family and
friends,” he said.

WASSMER
Continued from page 1
care, he said.
Much of the money from the fundraising effort will be used to purchase materials for patients, he said, and though
local dentistry practices have donated
some equipment, more needs to be collected.
The trip to Jamaica is the second community service journey Wassmer will go
on this year, as he recently returned from
Ensenada, Mexico, where he and 11
other students from the UCSF dental
program provided care for 250 patients
in four days, performing teeth cleanings
and extractions.
Wassmer and his colleagues would
often work all day to serve as many
patients as possible during their short
amount of time in Mexico, which he
found extremely taxing, both physically
and mentally.
“I was wrecked,” he said. “I’ve never
felt so exhausted before.”
He said at times he wondered whether
he could muster the required endurance
to serve all the patients, but when his
energy lulled, he relied on the strength of
his colleagues and need of the residents
to persevere.
“When you see how happy people are to
see you, that is the motivation,” he said.
“You want to serve as many people as possible, because you are working for them.”

LIBRARY
Continued from page 1
community input,” Penrose said. “But I
think this firm will design a building that
will probably fit very well in our community. And I think of all the firms, they
showed that they would be able to adapt
to the community.”
The contract includes hosting four
community meetings — one in the city,
another in the unincorporated mid coast,
a third in the unincorporated south coast
and one with the Hispanic community,
according to Deputy City Manager Alex
Khojikian. Kiosks where the public can
provide input will also be set up at farmers markets, community events and
other stakeholder meetings, according to
Khojikian.
Ruddock said she hopes the public
will have ample opportunities to get
involved in the design as thus far, she
feels the process has been flawed —
referring to complaints raised by residents who were denied access and the
ability to film a July meeting of the
city’s architect selection committee held
in Foster City.
While perhaps not legally required for
the meeting to have been public,

WEEKEND JOURNAL
He said much of the care he provided
was educating people on the value of
implementing simple, daily oral care
techniques, such as encouraging patients
to brush their teeth on a regular basis, or
warning against the danger of certain
diets that may be harmful to their teeth,
gums and mouth.
A variety of patients visited Wassmer
while in Mexico, he said, some who had
never brushed their teeth, others who
only went to the dentist when their teeth
hurt and others who had regularly scheduled appointments every six months.
And though he has never visited
Jamaica, some of his classmates who are
organizing the trip have gone on a similar mission, and told Wassmer he can
expect to be welcomed by lines of
patients hoping to receive treatment
each day he provides care.
The thought of such a demand may
seem overwhelming to someone less
motivated, but Wassmer said he is prepared for the challenge.
“It’s daunting,” he said. “But we are
going to treat everyone exactly the same,
and do our best for every single patient.”
As a deeply dedicated servant of the
community, both locally and abroad,
Wassmer said his passion for ensuring
oral health extends far beyond his trips
with classmates.
Wassmer is proficient in speaking
Spanish, and said he uses his bilingual
abilities to communicate with patients
who might otherwise not be able to
clearly understand a dentist’s instructions.

“Everyone has a right to fully understand the care they are receiving, where
they might be lacking, and where they
need to be in terms of their health,” he
said. “And everyone deserves to have
someone who can explain that in a fashion that they can understand.”
He said the ability to speak to a patient
in their native tongue goes a long way to
building a relationship with their dentist.
“If a patient feels more comfortable
with you, they will like you more and be
more open to the treatment they need,”
he said.
Wassmer has about two more years left
before graduating with his degree, and
then plans to begin administering dental
care through the U.S. Navy, which he
accepted a scholarship from two years
ago to help pay for his education.
Wassmer said he relies on family,
friends and classmates to provide some
balance to his life beyond of his insatiable desire to provide care to the community.
“I get a lot of support from my family,” he said. “And my classmates have
been huge. The fact that we’re all going
through the same thing, we really feed
off each other, and the support I have
really keeps me going.”

Ruddock said the community’s interest
should have officials endeavoring a
more open and transparent process that
includes stakeholder input at all stages
— particularly as the issue became
somewhat contentious during the last
election.
The city fell 22 votes short of extending a sales tax measure in November that
officials touted as a means to help support the city’s costs of the new library. In
February, the council voted to put $4
million down and commit its general
fund to pay off an $8.1 million bond
over the next 30 years to pay its portion.
Ruddock and Penrose noted Half
Moon Bay residents will be paying for a
substantial portion of the library as both
their city and county tax dollars will be
contributing.
Ultimately, Ruddock said everyone
seems to agree on the concept of a new
library.
“There needn’t be this conflict. There
needs to be dialogue, collaboration and
willingness to compromise,” Ruddock
said. “Everybody I know wants a new
library, but people have differences of
opinion as to the scale and the scope and
the cost.”
County supervisors and the council
are leaning toward revamping the current 8,000-square-foot library into a

25,000-square-foot facility that will
serve the entire coast, as it’s the only
library between Pacifica and Santa Cruz.
Of the library’s large coverage area,
about 58 percent of the population lives
outside the city’s limits, according to a
staff report.
Although there is a vocal portion of
the coastal community that has accused
various local government bodies of mishandling projects or meetings, many city
and county officials feel positive that
proceeding with a new library will be a
tremendous benefit.
“Selecting an architect is chalking up
one more milestone in the process of
building a 21st century library for Half
Moon Bay and the entire coastside,”
Mayor Marina Fraser wrote in an email.
“Now with selecting a design firm, we
will hold another round of public outreach to the community. To those who
did not participate before, this will provide an exciting opportunity to be
engaged. After 45 years, this well worn
much loved establishment will be rebuilt
on the same location to continue to be a
valuable community asset for another 40
plus years.”

Typhoon Goni leaves seven
dead, two missing in Philippines
MANILA, Philippines — Typhoon Goni
slightly weakened Saturday as it lashed the
northern Philippines with strong rain and wind
that set off landslides and flooded low-lying
villages, leaving at least seven people dead
and two others missing, officials said.
The government’s weather agency said the
typhoon was at sea about 125 kilometers (78
miles) east of northern Calayan Island on the
northern tip of the archipelago and is not

France: Two Americans
subdue gunman on train
By Greg Keller
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PARIS — A gunman opened fire on a highspeed train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris
on Friday, wounding two people before two
American passengers subdued him, officials
said.
French
Interior
Minister
Bernard
Cazeneuve, speaking in Arras in northern
France where the suspected was detained, said
one of the Americans was hospitalized with
serious wounds. Their names were not immediately released.
Philippe Lorthiois, an official with the
Alliance police union, said on i-Tele that the
two Americans were soldiers. In Washington,
the Pentagon said it “can only confirm that
one U.S. military member was injured in the
incident. The injury is not life-threatening.”
The White House issued a statement saying
that President Barack Obama was briefed on
the shooting, and said, “While the investigation into the attack is in its early stages, it is
clear that their heroic actions may have prevented a far worse tragedy.”
Contrary to early reports, Lorthiois said the
attacker did not fire his automatic weapon but
wounded one man with a handgun and the
other with a blade of some kind.
The suspect is a 26-year-old Moroccan,
according to Sliman Hamzi, an official with
the police union Alliance, who spoke on

French television i-Tele.
Investigators from France’s special anti-terror police are leading the investigation, a
spokeswoman for the Paris prosecutor’s office
said.
“As always where an act that could be terrorist in nature is involved, the greatest care
and the greatest precision will be used,”
Cazeneuve said.
Cazeneuve said the two Americans “were
particularly courageous and showed great
bravery in very difficult circumstances” and
that “without their sangfroid we could have
been confronted with a terrible drama.”
A third person, French actor Jean-Hugues
Anglade, suffered a minor injury while activating the train’s emergency alarm, Lorthiois
said.
Passenger Christina Cathleen Coons of
New York described the drama in car 12 of
the train in an interview with Ouest France
newspaper.
“I heard shots, most likely two, and a guy
collapsed,” she is quoted as saying.
Coons, identified as a 28-year-old vacationing in Europe, said a window broke above one
woman’s head. “A guy fell to the floor and had
blood everywhere,” she is quoted as saying.
She described lying on the floor herself and
taking photos with her phone.
“I thought there would be a shootout in the
train,” the newspaper quotes her as saying.
Then, “people came to take care of him.”

THE DAILY JOURNAL

Around the world
expected to make landfall. It is packing maximum sustained winds of 160 kilometers (100
miles) per hour and gusts of up to 195 kph
(121 mph). The slow-moving typhoon is forecast to start blowing away from the country on
Sunday, passing east of Taiwan and heading
toward Okinawa, Japan, early next week.
Among the dead were two brothers who
died when a landslide buried a temporary
shelter where they took cover in Bakun town
in the mountain province of Benguet.
