Bill seeks way to hike sales tax

Under legislation, county exempted from state law with aim to help transportation funding
By Samantha Weigel

Jerry Hill

As the countys roads and public transit are increasingly strained with the
booming economy bringing congestion
to the region, local legislators are seeking means to fund transportation
improvements by considering some of

the highest sales tax rates in California.

Per existing state law, most counties
cannot permit sales taxes to go above 2
percent of Californias sales tax
meaning cities and counties cannot have
rates higher than 9.5 percent.
With shoppers in Half Moon Bay and
San Mateo already paying 9.25 percent,
theres little wiggle room for county

transit officials to ask voters for a means

to fund future transportation needs.
Now, state Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San
Mateo, is seeking to alleviate the restriction through a bill allowing San Mateo
and Monterey counties to go beyond the
states cap in an attempt to address horrific traffic congestion.
I think transportation is really the tip-

ping point for San Mateo County and

Silicon Valley. If we dont resolve or
solve that problem and relieve congestion, I believe we will lose the economic
engine that has blessed us for so many
years, Hill said. We have to do what
we can to provide the resources neces-

Burlingame eyes
huge health care,
housing project


By Austin Walsh


Annabelle Guiod of San Mateo looks at different items that were collected and showcased at the "Catch of the
Day" contest at the 31st Annual Bayfront Clean Up at Ryder Park on Saturday morning.

The groundwork is set to be laid

by Burlingame officials for a massive residential and health service
development proposed by the
Peninsula Health Care District slated to be built near Mills-Peninsula
Medical Center.
The Burlingame City Council will
address during a meeting Monday,
Sept. 21, a proposal to get a head
start on the environmental review of
a project which could bring as many
as 250 housing units to an approximately 8-acre site near the intersection of Trousdale Drive and Marco
Polo Way.
Community is a tentative proposal
to build between 150 and 250 senior
housing units, up to 120,000 square
feet of senior support services, as
much as 40,000 square feet of rehabilitation and therapy space as well

as between 100,000 square feet and

150,000 square feet of office space,
among other features, according to a
document from the firm hired to
conduct environmental analysis for
the project.
Peninsula Health Care District
CEO Cheryl Fama said the project is
envisioned as a community asset
which will promote healthy living to
residents of the housing developments, and the rest of the region.
We really see this as an opportunity to use the land to bring together
people and their families, she said.
The project, formally proposed at
1819 Trousdale Drive, has been
through years of planning and is still
roughly four years away from being
ready to serve the community, said
An official environmental impact
report will be required for the project, but it is too early in the process

30-year sales tax Four vie for Millbrae council seats

San Mateo voters must decide this

November whether to extend what
was originally promised to be a temporary sales tax proponents say will
help support a range of needs like

Measure S is a 30-year extension

of Measure L, the 2009 voterapproved locally-controlled quartercent sales tax. As a general tax, the
estimated $5 million generated each
year could be spent on a variety of
projects voters have identified as
priorities, said City Manager Larry

San Mateo and Prohibition were made for each other

ant to get the feel of the Roaring

20s and Prohibition? Then head
to the San Mateo County coast
where rumrunners rode pounding waves long
before surfers. Tell em Jim sent me.
A coastal remnant of the nations long dry
spell is near Shelter Cove, an isolated enclave
that was the site of one of the more unusual
chapters of the fight against booze:
Prohibition agents blasted shut an abandoned
railroad shelter that bootleggers used for a
warehouse. Barbara VanderWerf recounted
the saga of the tunnel in her book, Montara
Mountain, in which she reported that the
rumrunners took over the cove at night and
unloaded thousands of bottles of whiskey
from Canadian ships. The next day the
whiskey was for sale in San Francisco
speakeasies, VanderWerf wrote.
The 354-foot-long tunnel was built by the
Ocean Shore Railroad, an ill-fated venture
designed to link San Francisco and Santa Cruz
via a coastal route. The railroad, which had a
slogan of Reaches the Beaches, lasted from
1907 to 1920, when autos increasingly lured
away passengers.
When plans were made for the present
Highway 1, the railroad decided to hold on to
its right to the tunnel, blown entrances and all.
Ocean Shore officials claimed it cost nearly a
million dollars to build the tunnel through
Pedro Point and carve a ledge along Devils
Slide. Besides the railroad might start up
again. The Highway 1 planners would have to
meet the railroads price or find another route,
which they did. Thats the route we drive

tunnel, only to be met by a screen of fog and
fences that held signs warning about the dangers of mudslides.
You cant see anything anyway, said a
man who lives in a nearby home that once
served as a depot for the Ocean Shore. Its all
just mud.
The San Mateo County coast was a natural
for rumrunners. The Coast Guard had a difficult time enforcing the National Prohibition
Act, later given teeth by the Volstead Act,
which lasted from 1920 to 1933.
Half Moon Bay was an excellent port
because of the areas many landing sites,
roads near the ocean and a sparse population.
Most seaborne booze came from Canada
with large ships loading up in Vancouver with
cargo for markets in San Francisco, Los
Angeles and San Diego. After delivering the
goods, the ships headed back to Canada for
another load.
Coast Guard Cmdr. Malcolm Willoughby
said one ship was able to stay in the Half
Moon Bay area for seven months in 1924. He
wrote in Rum War at Sea. that contact boats
sailed from San Francisco at times when a

particular official on duty found it profitable

to be unobserving.
There were clashes between the Coast
Guard and smugglers, however. One near
Moss Beach led to gunfire in which the Coast
Guard sailors opened up with rifles, machine
guns and a deck gun. The smugglers still managed to outdistance their pursuers in the dark.
The smuggling operations became very
advanced. One at Salada Beach employed a
dock that extended 250 feet into the surf and
employed a cable line to bring liquor ashore in
a breeches buoy.
In addition to the tunnel, the coast has other
reminders of the Gatsby age, particularly the
Moss Beach Distillery that boasts a fabled
flapper ghost. Other spots known for their
shady past include the Miramar Beach
Restaurant, known as the Miramar Hotel during Prohibition. An imposing private residence in Pacifica, dubbed the castle for
obvious reasons, was a well-known
It was the rumrunners and their customers
ashore who stole the bigger headlines via
exciting, colorful stories such as the Coast
Guard action noted earlier, but it wasnt long
before people were making their own libations. The San Mateo News-Leader reported
that 69 stills, including one that could make
300 gallons of alcohol a day, were raided in
the county during the first six years of
Prohibition, with most of the action taking
place in Colma and Daly City. And there were
only 36,000 people in San Mateo County at
the time. Guess few were getting carded.

Brown to sign expanded fair pay bill

By Janie Har


employees in California are poised
to get new tools to challenge gender-based wage gaps and receive
protection from discrimination and
retaliation if they ask questions
about how much other people earn.
A bill recently passed by the
Legislature and that Gov. Jerry
Brown has indicated he will sign
wont suddenly put all womens
salaries on par with mens or prod
employers to freely disclose what
every employee makes, which
could make it easier for workers to
mount pay discrimination claims.
But the legislation expands what
supporters call an outdated state
equal pay law and goes further than
federal law, placing the burden on
the employer to prove a mans higher pay is based on factors other than
gender and allowing workers to sue
if they are paid less than someone
with a different job title who does
substantially similar work.
So, a supermarket clerk could
challenge her pay based on what a

male clerk might

earn at the same
supermarket 10
miles away. Or
housekeepers at
a hotel could
challenge their
pay based on

arguing that they do similar work.
The pending legislation allows
them to learn pay details from asking clerks or janitors at other locations, again, without fear of blowback from management.
The requirement that they be in
jobs that are identical has really hindered women from bringing suits
and has failed to provide appropriate incentive for employers to make
sure theyre not engaged in subtle
discrimination, said Deborah
Rhode, a law professor at Stanford
Law School and expert on gender
Californias labor commissioner,
for example, has received only a
handful of complaints in recent
years alleging violation of the

states equal pay provision, said

Jennifer Reisch, legal director of
Equal Rights Advocate, which lobbied on the bill: Eight in 2012, 7 in
2011, and 6 in 2010.
Thats tiny, she said, when compared to other pay-related complaints.
The goal, however, isnt to clog
the courts with new lawsuits, she
said, although the newer standards
should make it easier to prevail on a
What its designed to do is to
make the enforcement more attainable and to remove barriers to effectuating the purposes of the law,
which is to make sure that women
and men are being paid equally for
doing substantially similar work,
she said.
Starting Jan. 1, women can file
these expanded claims in court or
through the state labor commissioners office.

higher wages for men only if the
pay is based on seniority, a merit

Stockton police under fire

over teen tackled on video

STOCKTON A cellphone video showed

police officers in Stockton grappling with and
tackling a 16-year-old who allegedly refused
to get out of a bus lane.
Tuesday mornings confrontation at a
downtown bus station has prompted protests
and a flood of comments to the Police
Department Facebook page calling the officers abusive and cowardly.
Emilio Mayfield was heading to school
when an officer confronted him for being in a
posted bus-only lane. An officer went over
and told the teen to get out of the lane but the
kid immediately used obscene language

toward the officer, told the officer Im not

going listen to you and walked away, police
spokesman Joseph Silva said Saturday.
That led to a struggle captured on video.
It shows the boy lying on his back on a
raised planter with his knees raised as he and
the officer grapple two-handed over a baton.
The boy is shouting Get off! and the officer,
who appears to be trying to hold him down
with the baton, says stop resisting!
The officer twists the baton, apparently
striking the boy in the face with both ends.
Several backup officers arrive and four of
them haul the struggling boy up, then drag
him to the sidewalk as bystanders shout





tor other than sex. It cleared the

Legislature with bipartisan support
and the backing of the state
Chamber of Commerce.
The legislation would also make
California one of a several states to
prohibit employers from discriminating or retaliating against a worker for asking how much her counterparts earn, said state Sen.
Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa
Barbara, who sponsored the bill. A
similar provision in Congress has
stalled for years.
This is a very specific and
explicit provision, she said, that
there can be no retaliation.
But theres no obligation that
employers provide salary information, leaving some questioning how
effective the provision might be in
promoting pay equity. Also,
California has long had a law prohibiting employers from requiring
employees to keep quiet on their
own wages.
The new law arguably goes a little bit further than current state law
but I dont think employers were
drawing that fine a distinction, said
Michael Kalt, an employment

4-million-year-old whale fossil
found in Santa Cruz County
SCOTTS VALLEY Paleontologists
have excavated the 4-million-year-old fossilized skeleton of whale discovered at a construction site in Santa Cruz County.

was found Sept. 4 at a housing development

Paleontologist Scott Armstrong tells the

Supporters of the bill cite studies
showing that on average, full-time

84 cents for every dollar that a man
makes, losing out on roughly $33
billion a year.
Thats a collective figure and
doesnt mean, for example, that all
female workers at a company earn
less than their male colleagues who
do the same work. It does mean that
women as a group earn less than
men for a variety of reasons
because they may have taken time
out to raise children or theyre overrepresented in lower-paying jobs or
perhaps they werent as aggressive
as their male counterparts in seeking a raise.
State lawmakers say they were

GOP wants to broaden appeal

Will candidates get in the way?
By Kevin Freking
and Julie Pace


America can grow up to be president, as the saying goes unless
you happen to be a Muslim, a leading Republican presidential candidate believes.
Its possibly one more self-inflicted dent in the partys professed
commitment to broaden its appeal
and promote tolerance.

a Muslim in charge of this nation,

said in an interview aired Sunday on

After a blistering examination of

Priebus concluded that if our party

State GOP softens immigration stance


LOS ANGELES The California

Republican Party voted Sunday to soften
its stance on immigration, seeking to
appeal to the states growing Latino population and distance itself from the harsh
rhetoric of presidential candidate
Donald Trump.
The changes approved Sunday say
Republicans hold diverse views on
what to do with the millions of people
who are currently here illegally, the Los
Angeles Times reported.

Although the new language emphasizes opposition to amnesty, it
removes the statement that allowing
illegal immigrants to remain in

California undermines respect for the

law, according to the newspaper.
The changes were proposed by a
Latino party official from Fresno,
Marcelino Valdez, in reaction to what he
called Trumps offensive comments
about immigrants.

Diverse electorate
Its important to use language that is
more appealing to Californias diverse
electorate, Valdez said.
In a statement after the vote, he called
it an anti-Proposition 187 plank, referring to the controversial 1994 ballot
measure that would have prevented
immigrants in the country illegally from
receiving public services. It was invalidated by federal courts, but not before it
helped drive Latinos away from the

Republican Party.
Last month, Trump, whos leading
many polls, outlined proposals to deny
citizenship to U.S.-born babies of immigrants living in the United States illegally as part of an immigration plan.
Emphasizing border security and millions of deportations, he also says he
would build a wall along the U.S. southern border and force Mexico to pay for

Obama: Women made civil rights movement happen

Barack Obama, women of the civil

Obama said black women were
the foot soldiers who did the
behind-the-scenes work of strategizing boycotts and organizing
marches while others received the

the thinkers and the doers making
things happen each and every day,
doing the work that no one else
wanted to do, he said in a speech
Saturday night at the Congressional
Black Caucus Foundations annual
awards dinner.

But Obama said that while black

women and girls have made
progress since and are opening
more of their own businesses and
graduating from high school and
college at higher rates, they are still
overrepresented in low-paying jobs
and underrepresented in management.
He even invoked his wife,
Michelle, as an example of the attitudes about black women that he
said persist. The first lady, a lawyer
with degrees from two Ivy League
universities, has spoken on occasion
of being told by her teachers that
she was setting her sights too high.
Those stereotypes and social
pressures, they still affect our girls,
said Obama, the father of two
teenage daughters. So we all have
to be louder than the voices that are
telling our girls theyre not good
enough, that theyve got to look a
certain way or theyve got to act a
certain way or set their goals at a
certain level.

Dozens feared dead after boat incidents

The events highlight the risks that
those fleeing the Middle East,
Africa and Asia are willing to take
in hopes of reaching sanctuary in
Europe. Men, women and children
continue to take the perilous sea
journey despite the fact that thousands of earlier migrants find themselves blocked by closed border
crossings in the Balkans.
Hungarys decision to shut its
border with Serbia on Sept. 15 set
off a chain reaction in Croatia and
Slovenia that has forced people
fleeing violence in their homelands
to rush from one European border to
the next as they desperately try to
find their way north before the rules
change again.

Pope meets Fidel Castro after warning against ideology


HAVANA Pope Francis met

with Fidel Castro on Sunday after
urging thousands of Cubans to serve
one another and not an ideology,
delivering a subtle jab at the communist system during a Mass celebrated under the gaze of an image of
Che Guevara in Havanas iconic
Revolution Plaza.
The Vatican described the 40minute meeting at Castros residence as informal and familial, with
an exchange of books and discussion about big issues facing human-

ity, including
Francis recent
encyclical on
the environment
and the global
economic system.
2012 visit of
Pope Francis Benedict XVI,
peppered the German theologian
with questions, the meeting with
Francis was more of a conversation,
papal spokesman the Rev. Frederico
Lombardi said.

A photo provided by Alex Castro,

Fidels son and official photographer,
showed the 89-year-old former president and Francis looking into each
others eye as they shook hands, the
pope in his white vestments and
Castro in a white button-down shirt
and Adidas sweat top. Castro
appeared to be gripping another,
unidentified man for support.
Francis called on Castro after celebrating Mass in Havanas main
plaza on his first full day in Cuba.
Believers and non-believers alike
streamed into the square before
dawn, and they erupted in cheers

when historys first Latin American

pope spun through the crowd in his
open-sided popemobile. Francis
didnt disappoint, winding his way
slowly through the masses and stopping to kiss children held up to him.
While most Cubans are nominally
Catholic, fewer than 10 percent
practice their faith and Cuba is the
least Catholic country in Latin
America. The crowd was not as big
as when St. John Paul II became the
first pope to visit the island in 1998,
but it drew people who seemed to
genuinely want to be there and listen to Francis message.

This is very important for us,

said Mauren Gomez, 40, who traveled some 250 kilometers (155
miles) from Villa Clara to Havana
by bus, spending her time reciting
the Rosary.
In his homily delivered under the
gaze of a metal portrait of revolutionary fighter Che Guevara,
Francis urged Cubans to care for
one another out of a sense of service, not ideology. He encouraged
them to refrain from judging each
other by looking to one side or the
other to see what our neighbor is
doing or not doing.

Letters to the editor

Response to Faith for thought
Dorothy Dimitres Aug. 26 column,
Faith for thought has some statements which are only supported by her
belief that she is right. She takes some
issue with the Ten Commandments,
which are followed by multiple religions without sticking to a single formal faith. The Commandments, if practiced by everyone, would cut through a
huge chunk of selshness and keep our
eyes on the highest good for everyone.
I admit to being so impressed with
these laws that I strive to follow them
myself, and try to impart them to my
children. Do my children challenge me
and seek to create their own understandings? Of course, and that is the
way it should be. My job is to expose
them to what I think is great knowledge, and their job is to decide if it will
work for them. I do not consider this as
brainwashing, as Dimitre implies.
Human life is precious and how we
treat the most the mentally ill, our prisoners, our youngest, and our oldest,
denes our humanity.
I nd editors irresponsible for printing Dimitres column without comment
on her lack of facts. The article was an
inammatory column, ridiculing the
faith of many people. We need to aim
higher in our communities to promote
tolerance and respect for all people.

Why does Millbrae need

so much money for the
sewer systems?
According to ofcial Millbrae City
Council minutes from July 13, 2010,
the total cost of the Baykeeper consent
decree is cited as $1.9 million. The
minutes state that all but three items of
the consent decree are outsanding.
Millbrae recently raised the wastewater rates, citing an additional funding
need of $34 million to fully satisfy the
consent decree. Why is this number so
much signicantly larger than the original $1.9 million in the ofcial minutes?
A signicant amount of capital
improvements in the millions of dollars
has been made to our sewer systems on
top of the $30 million renovation of the
water pollution control plant which
installed 1.2 million gallons of capacity
for sewer overows. The city has
already passed the cost of sewer laterals to homeowners and engaged in
more aggressive hot spot cleaning.
Reviewing the ofcial documents of
the consent decree; I see no correlation.
What is the deal? The people of
Millbrae deserve better information,
open communication and basic transparency.
Three out of the ve members of
council have never once replied to any
of the email inquiries I have sent in the
last two years. Either those members
cannot be bothered or they are incapable of defending the positions handed down by staff.
Certainly on a variety of issues we
can agree to disagree but when a
majority of both city council and staff
refuse to engage legitimate questions;
that is both telling and frightening.

Ongoing battle to save ice rink

As longtime San Mateo County residents, we are writing to you to express
our complete and utter frustration over
the lack of support from many of our
members of the San Mateo City
Council regarding the forced closure of
the Ice Center of San Mateo rink. The
councilmembers were elected by the
residents of this community and are
supposed to represent us. Why are they
not supporting the wishes of the community to help keep the ice rink operational and protect it from demolition?
They say they cant do anything, but
they really can. They can reject the
zoning change (recreational to retail)
that SPI has requested.
Forover two years, this entire community has rallied together to save the

Are Trump or
Carson qualified to
run for local office?

ne has to wonder why people with little community experienced or participation suddenly decide to
run for the local school board or city council. On
the one hand, its gratifying that citizens want to play a
major role in local government. And new blood can be an
improvement over an ineffective incumbent. On the other,
its troubling that newbies, if elected, will be asked to make
important policy, nancial and personnel decisions for which
they may be unprepared.
My guess is that everyone
feels they are an education
expert. They have attended
school. Their children and
grandchildren have, too. So
whats not to know? It turns
out that school board business is complex, school
nancing is complicated,
and often very difcult
budget and personnel issues
must be decided. School
trustees should know how to
analyze a budget and how to
participate in collective bargaining. They also need to
visit the schools and classrooms in their district, know the
teaching and administrative staff, and have the skills to evaluate and select a superintendent
Then education philosophy is always changing from
emphasis on the whole child to open classrooms to phonics
to the Three Rs and to the many new subjects students are
expected to master. There are questions of how much technology is too much or too little. What to do about a teacher
shortage or shrinking budgets or what new schools to build
or close depending on demographic changes. The state
makes many decisions and school boards have lost much
local control since Proposition 13. Still its not a job for the
weak of heart. And what could be more serious and worthwhile than attending to the education of our children?
Many candidates for city council do have some experience
in city if not community affairs. Many have served on their
citys boards and commissions or have been active in their
neighborhood associations. That makes it much easier. The
biggest challenge of city councils are land use issues. How
much and what kind of new development is necessary to
sustain the vitality of the community. What to do about trafc. Now with climate change and drought, there are new
problems with ooding and water conservation. What to do
about aging infrastructure. There is never enough money in
the capital budget to answer all of these needs plus the desire
of citizens for more parks and better libraries.
Councilmembers should also know how to analyze a budget
and how to evaluate and select a city manager.
The most troubling aspects of neophyte candidates is the
tendency to feel I dont need to know all these things. Thats
the staffs responsibility. As for staff letting councilmembers
off the hook, lets remember the Stockton City Council
which allowed their city to fall into bankruptcy because they
never exercised appropriate nancial oversight. When councilmembers were questioned by the grand jury on the asco,
some councilmembers said they thought it was the staffs
responsibility and not theirs.
The good news that however green a newly elected board
trustee and councilmember is there are excellent training
classes available for newly elected ofcials on all the subjects mentioned above and many more by the League of
California Cities and the California School Boards
As for Donald Trump and Ben Carson, I dont think either
would be a suitable school board candidate. My guess is that
they sent their children to private school and while that may
not be a problem if you are running for other ofces, it is if
you want to serve on a public school board. Dr. Carson doesnt believe in evolution which might create a problem for
biology classes.
And Trump would have problems with the signicant
number of Latino children in the schools, probably some of
whom have parents who are undocumented.
Dr. Carson might make it on a city council if he kept his
religious beliefs to himself but Trump, as the ultimate bigtime developer, would have problems getting elected. As for
Trump and Carsons run for president of the United States,
commander-in-chief, and leader of the free world, thats
something else.

country became dependent on international bailouts five years ago. The
country has seen six governments
and four parliamentary elections
since 2009.
We will place our peoples just
cause at the forefront faced with
asymmetrical powers and enemies
more powerful than us, Tsipras
said. But we have achieved it: The
flags of Greece are flying in the
squares of Greece and the European
capitals. Greece and the Greek people represent struggle and dignity.

And together we will continue that

struggle for an entire four years.
A total of eight parties were set to
win parliamentary seats. The new
anti-bailout Popular Unity party,
formed by rebel Syriza members
who objected to Tsipras agreement
to a third bailout for Greece and the
stringent austerity attached to it,
was falling short of the 3 percent
parliamentary threshold.
We lost the battle, but not the
war, said Popular Unity head
Panagiotis Lafazanis, Tsipras former energy minister.
New Democracy head Vangelis
Meimarakis conceded defeat shortly after exit polls showed a clear
Syriza victory, and called for a government to be formed quickly.
The election result appears to be
forming comprehensively with
Syriza and Mr. Tsipras coming
first, Meimarakis said. I congratulate him and call on him to form the
government that is necessary.
The new government will have
little time to waste. Creditors are
expected to review progress of
reforms as part of the bailout next
month, while the government will
also have to draft the 2016 state
budget, overhaul the pension system, raise a series of taxes, including on farmers, carry out privatizations and merge social security
It must also oversee a critical
bank recapitalization program,
without which depositors with over
100,000 euros ($113,000) in their
accounts will be forced to contribute.

Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the head of

the eurozones finance ministers
meetings known as the eurogroup,
congratulated Tsipras on his election victory. Looking forward to
swift formation of new government with strong mandate to continue reform process, he said in a
Sundays result, with Syriza able
to form a government with the
Independent Greeks and without
need to reach out to more eurofriendly centrist parties is one that
Tsipras will likely feel somewhat
emboldened by, said Malcolm Barr
of J.P. Morgan. The choice appears
to have been made that when push
comes to shove, Syriza will opt to
keep Greece in the euro. But we
note this result provides a platform
upon which Syriza will continue to
challenge significant parts of the
(bailout) program.
Tsipras has clearly stated he disagreed with the spending cuts and
tax hikes demanded by Greeces
European creditors in return for the
new bailout, a three-year package
worth 86 billion euros ($97 billion).
But he argued that without it,
Greece faced bankruptcy and a
potentially disastrous exit from
Europes joint currency.
His party supporters were more
forgiving than the hardliners who
split from his party.
He is young. We had been voting
for the others for 40 years, supporter Eva Vasilopoulou. We are
giving (him) a second chance. He is
pure, and smart, and I hope that he
will govern for many years.

VW chief says sorry after EPA

says firm skirted clean air law



Volkswagen apologized Sunday and VW
customers said they felt duped after the
Environmental Protection Agency
revealed that the German automaker
skirted clean air rules by rigging emissions tests for about 500,000 diesel cars.
I personally am deeply sorry that we
have broken the trust of our customers
and the public, Volkswagen chief
Martin Winterkorn said in a statement.
He said VW has ordered an investigation
and promised that the company would
cooperate with regulators.
The EPA said Friday that VW used
software that allowed its diesel cars to
release fewer smog-causing pollutants
during tests than in real-world driving
conditions. The cars, built in the last
seven years, include the Audi A3, VW
Jetta, Beetle, Golf and Passat models.
The agency ordered VW to fix the cars at
its own expense. VW also faces fines

that could add up to billions of dollars.

VW edged out Toyota to become the
worlds top-selling automaker the first
half of 2015. But a hit to its reputation
from the emissions revelations could
hamper its efforts at a sales rebound in
the U.S. Between 2013 and 2014, VW
brand sales plummeted 10 percent even
as overall industry sales rose 6 percent.
U.S. buyers want SUVs, and
Volkswagen doesnt have competitive
vehicles to offer them.
The influential magazine Consumer
Reports almost immediately suspended
its recommended rating from the Jetta
and Passat diesels until it can get a recall
repair and re-test the cars.
Volkswagen marketed the diesel-powered cars, which account for about 25
percent of sales, as being better for the
environment. After the EPA announcement, the automaker withdrew ads for its
diesel cars from and asked
dealers to stop selling 2015 diesel cars
with 2.0-liter engines, according to a

person familiar with the matter who

requested anonymity.
Some VW customers were furious.
Zeeshan Shah, 39, of Fulton,
Maryland, said that he bought a
Volkswagen Diesel Passat 2015 model
in July after he totaled his Jetta two
years ago.
The selling point, for the Diesel
Passat was that the technology was so
good, he said. Now, Shah said he plans
to bring the car back to the local dealer
to have it examined and doesnt want to
buy another Volkswagen. Once they
cheat you on this issue, what other issues
can they cheat you on? he said. You
dont trust them.
San Francisco resident Marsha Riggs,
who owns a 2009 Jetta SportWagen, said
she was shocked. I bought this car
because I thought it was clean, she said.
And its not clean. She had been
happy with the car but now doubts shed
buy another Volkswagen. They sort of
compromised that trust, she said.

SHP comeback falls short

Palma perseveres to hand Gators second straight loss
By Terry Bernal

For a game that was fairly dominated by the Palma football team,
Sacred Heart Prep sure did make it
interesting. But in the end, the
Palma-Salinas held off a late surge
by the Gators to get back in the
win column with a 31-28 victory.
The loss marks the second
straight for the Gators (1-2),
which is wildly unfamiliar territory. Having won Central Coast
Section titles in four of the previous five seasons, including last
seasons Open Division title for
the first time in program history,
the Gators have not lost consecutive games since 2007.

Even in 2007, the second

straight loss to Ferndale was in
the opening round of the CCS
playoffs. SHP has not lost consecutive regular-season games since
2006 in opening the year with
three straight losses, to El
Camino, Menlo and Mills.
Were still a pretty good smallschool football team, Sacred Heart
Prep head coach Pete Lavorato said.
I think were still OK.
Early in Saturdays matchup
with the powerhouse Chieftains
who themselves were coming
off a loss, having fallen 28-14 to
St. Francis Sept. 11 the game
looked destined to be a blowout.
Palma (2-1) once led by 21-0 in
the first half, then took a 31-14

lead into the fourth quarter.

But the Gators rallied for two
touchdowns in the final quarter to
close to within 3 points, capped
by a dramatic 9-yard touchdown
reception by senior wide receiver
Nick ODonnell. Then with precisely one minute remaining on
the game clock, SHP nearly pulled
off the miracle onside kick when
sophomore placekicker Peter
Larson exacted a perfect-looking
attempt towards the sideline.
SHP senior Adrien Beaulieu actually came up with the ball, making
a leaping grab of the high bounder. But it was ruled Beaulieu
touched the ball only nine yards

Steelers stick Niners

with first loss of year
By Will Graves


CSM quarterback Dru Brown gained 315 total yards, including 42 rushing, in Saturdays 56-27 win over Butte.

Dog day

PITTSBURGH The sheet and

20 years of conventional NFL wisdom said to kick. The Steelers
took a look at it, ripped it up and
set it on fire.
Considering how easy Ben
Roethlisberger and company made
finding the end zone look on Sunday
against overmatched San Francisco,
there may be no going back.
Roethlisberger passed for 369
yards and three touchdowns,
DeAngelo Williams tied a team
record with three rushing scores
and the Steelers converted a pair of
early 2-point attempts to seize
momentum and roll to a remarkably easy 43-18 win.
Steelers receiver Antonio Brown
caught nine passes for 195 yards and
one touchdown and had a 2-point
conversion catch for the Steelers,
who needed all of 23 minutes to pile
up 453 yards even without All-Pro
running back LeVeon Bell and wide
receiver Martavis Bryant. The two

23-year-olds sat
out a second
straight game
for violating the
policy, though
Bell will return
next week when
Jim Tomsula Pittsburgh visits St. Louis.
Given 10 days to recover from a
28-21 loss to New England,
Pittsburgh responded by looking
every bit as explosive as offensive
coordinator Todd Haley insisted it
could be. Frustrated by an inability to finish drives with touchdowns against the Patriots, the
Steelers decided to end them with
exclamation points while ruining
Tomsulas homecoming.
Despite an easy opening week
win over Minnesota, Tomsula
stressed he was worried about

Goff makes history

No.3-ranked Bulldogs rout winless Butte in Cals win at Texas
By Jim Vertuno

By Terry Bernal

When the College of San Mateo

Bulldogs took their first offensive
possession of the second quarter
Saturday at College Heights
Stadium, they found themselves in a
position they were only in twice all
of last year trailing by 14 points.
Both those matchups accounted
for the only two losses of the 2014
season for the Bulldogs. Yet CSM
head coach Bret Pollack said there
was no panic in he, or his team,
Saturday. And they showed it. The
Bulldogs scored on their next
seven legitimate possessions
sans a one-play possession to run
out the clock at the end of the first
half to power past the Butte

College Roadrunners 56-27.

The win marks the third straight
to start the year for the No. 3ranked Bulldogs (3-0), who totaled
578 yards offense against winless
Butte (0-3).
I never panicked, Pollack said.
Theres nothing to panic about.
Its a football game. But we definitely overcame some adversity.
Freshman fullback Joey Wood
broke out for the first big performance of his collegiate career, rushing for a game-high 145 yards on
17 carries and three touchdowns.
CSM came up empty on its first
two possessions, with a three-andout followed by freshman quarterback Dru Browns lone interception of the day. But the Bulldogs
solved the Butte defense on their
first possession of the second quar-

ter with the help of two beneficial

pitch plays to freshman running
back Ramiah Marshall.
After spreading the Roadrunners
defense from sideline to sideline,
Wood busted through for his first
score of the day on a 13-yard run
through the middle to cut Buttes
lead to 14-7.
Hes made to power the ball up
the middle and overpower the
defense, Pollack said. The name
of his game is between the tackles
and to break tackles.
Woods outburst was even more
Bulldogs finished the first half
missing five regular offensive linemen. Sophomore Mani Tonga and
freshman Feke Kioa were already

end a six-game home losing streak to
Arizona, beating the Diamondbacks 5-1 on
There are great fans here in San
Francisco and I do want to take in every little moment I can out there, the 40-year-old
Hudson said. I cant argue with results.
Alejandro De Aza and Jarrett Parker also
drove in runs for the Giants, who snapped a
35-inning scoreless streak at home against
Arizona pitching.
David Peralta homered, and Ender Inciarte
had three hits for the Diamondbacks, who
had won three of their previous four games.
Hudson (8-8) gave up four hits in improving to 11-2 with a 2.19 ERA in 16 starts
against the Diamondbacks. He walked three

Barry and I go back a while, so it was
nice to see him on the field, Hinch said. I
told him before the series that I was proud of
him for sticking it out.
Zito isnt sure whats next, but is ready for
whatever role hes given.
Ive been building up my pitch count so
Ill be able throw whenever they need me,
he said. Out of the pen or if they need me
to make a start, I feel like I can do that.
Melvin enjoyed seeing him playing in an
As uniform for the first time since Oct. 10,
2006, in Game 1 of the AL Championship
Series against Detroit.
It is nice. You see him in the green and
gold, Melvin said. Hes made a nice career
out of pitching for this organization.
Zito appeared in 24 games with 22 starts
for Nashville this season, going 8-7 with a
3.46 ERA. He hopes hell get to start in
Oakland this season.

I walk away a little disappointed,

Hellickson said. My command was pretty
good, even in sixth inning I executed my
pitches. Good pitches, maybe not the right
pitch for the situation.
Randall Delgado came on to walk Matt
Duffy ahead of Poseys 19th home run of the
year. Posey has driven in 10 runs over his
last seven games and has 93 on the season.
Special players do special things,

Carr rallies 49ERS

Raiders to a
late victory
Continued from page 11

By Josh Dubow

OAKLAND All Derek Carr wanted after

he threw a late interception in a tie game
was a chance. When that opportunity came,
Carr didnt squander it.
Carr bounced back from that critical mistake to throw a 12-yard
touchdown pass to Seth
Roberts with 26 seconds
left to cap the most productive day of his young
career and lead the Raiders
to a 37-33 victory over
the Ravens Sunday.
Im thankful our
defense held up, Carr
Derek Carr
said. After that I told the
guys in the huddle, Believe it. Weve done
this a thousand times. They did a great job
of making plays.
Carr went 7 for 9 for 65 yards on the winning
drive. He was helped by a personal foul on
Timmy Jernigan and a hold on Will Hill III that
negated an interception on the play before the
touchdown that gave Jack Del Rio his first win
as coach of his childhood favorite team.
It was special, Del Rio said. I had to
focus on taking my mind elsewhere so I didnt get all choked up. Very special for me.
Carr threw for a career-high 351 yards and
three touchdowns a week after being
knocked out of a season-opening loss with
an injured throwing hand.
Joe Flacco threw for 384 yards and two
scores but just missed an open Steve Smith
Sr. in the end zone to force Baltimore to settle for a field goal before Oaklands winning
drive. Flacco then threw a late interception
that sealed it and sent the Ravens to their
first 0-2 start since 2005.

in an intentionally thick Pittsburgh accent

as a way of paying tribute to his roots.
The Steelers began each practice during
training camp with a drill called seven
shots. The starting offense would run seven
plays from the 2 the distance of a 2-point
conversion against the starting defense.
It wasnt just for late-game situations.
Tomlin hinted hed become more aggressive
going for two after the league moved back
the extra point kick. He backed it up twice
in the first half, keeping the offense on the
field following touchdowns by Heath Miller
and Williams.
Both times the Steelers converted with
ease. Roethlisberger connected with a wideopen Brown to put Pittsburgh up 8-0. The
Steelers initially lined up to kick after
Williams first score but Tomlin changed his
mind when San Francisco was flagged for
being offside. With the ball moved up to the
1, Roethlisberger flipped a pass to Miller.

Continued from page 11
credit him with a block.
We saw on the edges they were kind of
weak, White said. We knew if we went
really hard, really fast, everything was
gonna work out.
Texas coach Charlie Strong was stunned
by the loss.
This one hurts, he said. An extra point
is automatic. I didnt even look ... (Then) I
saw one of their players running down the
field and said Oh my God.
It was a record day for Goff as well, who
became Cals all-time best passer throwing
268 yards and three touchdowns to break the
program records for career passing yards and


Colin Kaepernick threw for 335 yards but was

sacked five times by the Steelers Sunday.
Tomlin finally sent kicker Josh Scobee
out for a one-point kick after Darrius
Heyward-Beys 35-yard touchdown reception early in the second quarter. Scobee,
who missed a pair of field goals in the opener, smacked it off the upright. When Scobee
did connect on one to push the Pittsburgh
advantage to 29-3 with 1:58 to go in the
half, the largest regular season crowd in
Heinz Field history greeted the kick with a
career completions, as well as the career
program record for total offense.
But Heard, who was making just his second career start, nearly upstaged him.
Heard passed for 364 yards and ran for 163
and three touchdowns, becoming the first
Texas quarterback to pass for 300 and run for
100 in a game since Colt McCoy in 2009.
He also nearly had his helmet ripped off late
in the third quarter when a rushing defensive
lineman grabbed his facemask, but Texas (12) rallied from that point, trailing 45-24.
Khalfani Muhammad ran for 164 yards for
California (3-0), including a 74-yard touchdown.
California seemed in complete control
when Muhammad burst through the middle
of the Texas defense, breaking tackles and
outracing several tacklers to the end zone.
The touchdown capped 31 straight points
by California.
Texas stormed back behind Heard. The
home crowd got into the game when
Californias James Looney grabbed Heards
facemask and turned his head backward.
Heard stayed on the ground for a few minutes, but got up and Texas finished the drive
with Heards zig-zagging, sideline-to-sideline 13-yard touchdown run.
California didnt score in the fourth quarter and Texas kept grinding out yards and
touchdowns. DOnta Foremans 27-yard run
cut Californias lead to 45-38 before Texas
started its final drive from its 19. Heards
long run for the end zone had the game likely headed for overtime before Rose missed
the kick.

Bronx cheer.
The plodding 49ers couldnt keep pace.
Colin Kaepernick threw for 335 yards and
two scores but was sacked five times and
didnt get comfortable until it was far too
late. Torrey Smith had six receptions for
120 yards and a touchdown.
Obviously with the offense the Steelers
have, we have to match the touchdowns and
we didnt do that today, Kaepernick said.
Two San Francisco long drives 17
plays in the first half and 18 plays in the
second netted just three points. None of
the Steelers six scoring drives took more
than eight plays.
Its no secret, Tomsula said. They do a
wonderful job of creating. Thats what happened. You cant give up big plays.
NOTES: 49ers RB Carlos Hyde ran for 43
yards before leaving in the second half following a shot to the head. He was cleared by
doctors to return but was held out as a precaution. ... Steelers LB Ryan Shazier had a
career-high 15 tackles, but left with a minor
right shoulder injury. ... Roethlisberger tied
Terry Bradshaws team record for career wins

Rose had to stay on the field to attempt an
onside kick, which skipped across the field
and out of bounds. Goff then took a knee to
run out the clock.
It was a big win to go on the road and
beat a power five conference. A huge win,
Both teams rolled up and down the field
mostly at will. California had 548 yards
total offense and Texas had 650. Goff threw
two touchdown passes to Kenny Lawler.
We just assumed after they scored we were
going to overtime, California coach
Sonny Dykes said. Im still in a little bit of

Richardson plenty of comfort in the pocket. Not only were

the Gators not able to sack Palmas quarterback. Behind an
impressive Chieftains offensive line of tackles Zach
Ralston and Josh Koberg, guards Nick Denny and Richard
Hernandez and center Aaron Zender, Richardson has yet to
be sacked this season.
I think we were close a whole bunch of times and theyre
just a good offensive team, Lavorato said.
The Chieftains last years Monterey Bay League Gabilan
Division co-champion and qualifier for the CCS Open
Division playoffs havent lost back-to-back regular-season
games since 2013.
Its a really big win for us after a loss, Palma head coach
Jeff Carnazzo said. Its tough when you lose. So, when
you bounce back against the reining Open Division champion, its big.

Continued from page 11
past the line of scrimmage, one yard shy of the 10 yards a kickoff is required to travel. The resulting penalty gave Palma possession with less than a minute to play to easily run out the
clock, as SHP had no timeouts remaining.
When Adrien grabbed the ball, I thought he had it for sure,
said Cameron Dolsky, SHP senior team captain.
Dolsky is a two-way lineman and was not on the field for the
special-teams play. But he did have the best view of it as he
was standing on the SHP sideline right at the 50. Not that the
referees call was disputed. The vast consensus was Beaulieu
got to the ball early. But the wave of emotion from the Gators
sideline when their guy came down with the football was very
real, only to fall muted when the referees immediately conferred and ultimately awarded possession to Palma.
After a dreadful first half that saw Palma junior tailback
Emilio Martinez rush for 141 of his game-high 213 yards, the
Gators did well to recuperate in the second half. Trailing by 17
points, SHP generated some defensive momentum as the two
teams traded a total of six scoreless possessions, including
one fumbled turnover by each.
But the Gators were able to get their offense on track after a
Palma punt gave them possession at their own 40-yard line.
Senior running back Lapitu Mahoni gained some steam en
route to rushing for a team-high 89 yards on 21 carries with
two touchdowns. His initial score in the first quarter got the
Gators on the board. His second score capped a 12-play, 60yard drive as he blasted in a 1-yard touchdown to close Palmas
lead to 31-21.
In the beginning [our offense] was slow, Mahoni said. It
was hit and miss there. But later it started picking up and we
started finding holes.
Palma got the ball back with 8:03 remaining in the game
and began moving the ball. The Chieftains kept it on the
ground, using six plays to move to the Gators 43-yard line.
Then on third-and-10, Palma quarterback Jack Richardson
who was 14 of 20 for 165 yards completed a 7-yard pass to
Orlando Yepez to set up fourth-and-3 from the SHP 26.
But on fourth down, senior running back Jared Torculas

SHP running back Lapitu Mahoni ran for a team-high 89 yards

and two touchdowns in Saturdays loss to Palma.
attempted a sweep around the right side, but was met directly
behind the line of scrimmage by the defensive end Dulsky
for a 5-yard loss, turning the ball over on downs to SHP with
4:11 remaining.
Dulsky said the Gators made key adjustments in the halftime
locker room. Throughout the first half, the defense was consistently giving up inside lanes, he said. SHP assistant coach
Matt Moran held court during halftime to repair the recurring
missed assignments.
In the first half, we came out a little flat, Dulsky said. We
were missing some assignments.
So, when the Gators defense gave quarterback Mason
Randall the ball back, the senior reciprocated. Randall was 15of-21 passing for 145 yards, including a 5-for-7 spree on the
final possession. It was a costly drive, however, as SHP used
all three of its timeouts within a seven-play span. Only one of
those timeouts was used to stop the clock. The other two were
due to tactical personnel issues, stemming from injured regulars not being on the field, Lavorato said.
Honestly, I dont think I did a good job of using my timeouts, Lavorato said.
It was a necessary sacrifice though, as the Gators had to claw
for first downs. Randall was twice faced with fourth down,
gaining a first on a 1-yard sneak on fourth-and-inches before
completing a 25-yard pass to ODonnell to the Palma 20-yard
line on fourth-and-7.
Then on second-and-goal from the 9, with 1:07 remaining,
Randall dropped back and hit ODonnell with a low pass, converting a hook route at the goal line for the touchdown.
That was unbelievable, Mahoni said. [ODonnell] just
sparked our whole team right there. Because of that catch,
we were ready to keep going.
But Palma earned its breathing room with its 21-point outburst to start the game. Martinez took the second play from
scrimmage 75 yards for a touchdown. After SHPs first possession ended in a blocked punt by Yepez, Martinez scored on a
more conventional 3-yard run. Then the Gators fumbled away
their next possession one of three on the day for SHP
allowing Palma a four-play, 42-yard drive with Martinez scoring his third touchdown on a 1-yard dance into the end zone.
All the while, SHPs insistence on not blitzing allowed

The Knights (3-0) continue to feel at home at neutral sites

while their home field is being re-turfed, leading the whole way
to down Soquel (0-3) Saturday at Cabrillo College.
Team Charlie paced Menlo on the ground with junior tailback Charlie Ferguson rushing for a career-high 164 yards and
two touchdowns. Senior fullback Charlie Roth added 72 yards
on the ground.
It was quarterback Mackenzie Morehead who got the
Knights on the board with each of their first four scores. The 65 senior was 16-of-28 passing for 296 yards and four touchdown strikes. He hit senior receiver R.J. Babiera scoring passes of 11 and 40 yards in the first half. Then taking a 14-7 lead
into the second half, he hooked up with Antonio Lopez senior
Antonio Lopez for touchdown completions of 33 and 16 yards.
Ferguson added Menlos final two scores in the fourth quarter
with touchdown runs of 19 and 4 yards.
Menlo has now won three straight to start the season,
including last weeks 28-14 win over Mission-SF at Sequoia
High School. After an upcoming road trip to Carlmont Friday,
the Knights are scheduled to make their debut at Menlo Oct. 9
for their homecoming game in the Peninsula Athletic League
Ocean Division opener against Woodside.

Mills 34, Galileo 12

The Vikings (2-1) won their second straight in Saturdays
home matchup against Galileo-SF (0-3). Mills racked up 286
rushing yards, including a game-high 137 yards on 15 carries
by Jerry Ibanez.
While Mills led the entire way, the first half saw a back-andforth scoring battle.
Senior Sean McAuliffe got the Vikings in the first quarter
with a 2-yard touchdown run. But Mills and Galileo traded two
touchdowns apiece in the second quarter Mills were both
scored by Ibanez with runs of 14 and 4 yards to make it 2112 going into halftime. The two scores for Galileo were its
first points of the year.
Mills dominated the second half though, tallying twice in
the third quarter to put the game away. Sophomore fullback
Andrew Killigrew scored on a 1-yard run and Ibanez galloped
for a 16-yard touchdown.

Lincoln 27, El Camino 7

The Colts (0-2) are still looking for their first win after
Saturdays loss at Lincoln-SF (2-2). El Camino tied the game
7-7 in the second half before Lincoln rattled off three unanswered touchdowns. The Mustangs gained 295 yards via the
rush, including a team-best 101 yards on 22 carries from senior Jacquez Williams-Chish.

Maze Runner sequel outpaces Black Mass

By Jake Coyle

wish a had a dollar every time Ive

heard people introducing two dogs
say something like this: just let em
go at it ... they will sort it out eventually as
thats what dogs do. They reason the dominant dog will put the other dog in his or her
place and the fur will stop ying. While
this may be the case in nature with wild
animals, the wild bunch in your home or
yard arent exactly the same. For one, wild
animals severely injure or even kill each
other establishing this hierarchy. This is not
something you want to see between your
resident dog and a new dog you are bringing into your home, or between your dog
and a family member or friends dog. A dog
ght can be scary to you, traumatic for the
dogs and costly if you have to make a trip
to the emergency clinic. It can be costly in
other ways, straining a family relation or
friendship. Also, in nature, the less dominant animal has the option of leaving the
pack or group. If you have a new dog you
are trying to introduce to your resident dog,
you dont have that option and you dont
want to have to return your new dog. So,
dont let the two dogs duke it out. Have
them meet, on leash, somewhere unfamiliar
to both dogs. If this goes well, you can see
how they interact off-leash in this same
neutral territory. If one is off-leash and the
other is not, the dog left on-leash may feel
vulnerable. And, of the two options ght
or ight ght will be the easier one
since ight isnt possible. If you have any
doubts, you may want to have a professional trainer observe the initial meetings. We
do this quite often when adopters who have
resident dogs bring those dogs to our
center to meet a new dog.

NEW YORK The Maze Runner: The

Scorch Trials edged out Johnny Depps
Black Mass at box office, as the two films
split young and old moviegoers in half on the
first weekend of the fall movie season.
20th Century Foxs sequel to The Maze
Runner earned an estimated $30.3 million,
according to studio estimates Sunday. While
that came in slightly below the debut of the
2014 young-adult dystopian sci-fi original, it
counted as a win for a movie that cost $61
million to make.
Warner Bros. Black Mass, starring
Johnny Depp as Boston gangster Whitey
Bulger, premiered with $23.4 million. Thats
a strong sum for an R-rated adult drama, and
it stabilizes a bad box-office run for Depp following Mortdecai, Transcendence and
The Lone Ranger.
The audience for The Scorch Trials was
63 percent below the age of 25, according to
Fox, while 89 percent of the audience for
Black Mass was over 25, according to
Warner Bros.
The draw for Black Mass was Depps icy
performance as Bulger, which has garnered

2.Black Mass, $23.4 million.

better reviews for the actor and some Oscar
buzz. Jeff Goldstein, head of domestic distribution for Warner Bros., said that 55 percent
of the audience said in exit polls that Depp
was their reason for seeing the movie, which
features an ensemble including Joel Edgerton
and Benedict Cumberbatch.
A diverse cast leading to a diverse audience
was the key for Scorch Trials, said Chris
Aronson, head of domestic distribution for
Fox. Wes Balls adaptation of James
Dashners young-adult novel stars Dylan
OBrien, Ki Hong Lee and Kaya Scodelario.
More than half of its audience was made up
of minorities. It also performed well abroad,
earning $43.3 million internationally.

The sequel to The Maze Runner earned an estimated $30.3 million over the weekend at
the box office.
But North American theaters had the distinct feel of fall, with a crowded slate of wellreviewed films some of them awards
hopefuls opening in more limited release
and hoping to build strong word of mouth for
longer runs at the multiplex.
Universals 3-D mountaineering thriller
Everest, starring Josh Brolin and Jason
Clarke, opened with $7.6 million, playing
only on 545 IMAX and large-format screens.
It expands wide next weekend.
Sicario, the Lionsgate drug-war thriller
starring Emily Blunt, Brolin
and Benicio del Toro,
opened in New York and Los
Angeles ahead of its expansion over the next two
weeks. In just six theaters, it
took in $390,000 with an
excellent per-screen average
of $65,000.
The fall season, said Paul
Dergarabedian, senior media
analyst for box-office data
firm Rentrak, got off to a
good start, with a wealth of
options for moviegoers and
well-reviewed releases that
can play beyond opening
Its about that playability,
the long-term conversation
on social media that keeps

people buzzing about Sicario, Black Mass

and other films yet to come, Dergarabedian
said. The moviegoing habit changes in the
fall, not only how and when they go to the
movies, but how they talk about the movies
and for how long.
Paramount Pictures Captive, starring
David Oyelowo and Kate Mara, however,
struggled to find moviegoers. The faith-based
thriller couldnt follow in the steps of the
lucrative Christian drama War Room,
grossing just $1.4 million in 806 theaters.

to begin, said Burlingame Community
Development Director Bill Meeker.
The council stands to approve during the
meeting Monday a service agreement
between the health care district with David J.
Powers and Associates to conduct some initial
steps of the environmental impact review, said
Fama said over years of community outreach, a main concern expressed has been

ed the citys ability to fix nearly 19 miles of
failed streets, undertake flood control
improvements to alleviate residents from
being forced to pay flood insurance, improve
parks and more.
Although Measure L was passed during
tough economic times and the citys finances
have improved, supporters of Measure S
argue it will help fund police as well as fire
personnel and tackle overdue infrastructure
Opponents contend sales taxes are regressive, hurt the poor and the city should spend
wiser to save for improvements instead of
burdening shoppers.

Is it palatable?
The city previously hired a firm to conduct
a poll of likely voters to determine whether
there was support for such a measure.
Through that effort, citizens identified priorities such as maintaining emergency services,
repairing potholes and maintaining programs
for youth and seniors, according to a city staff
The city briefly considered increasing the
tax to a half percent but with a shorter 20-year
life span. Ultimately, the City Council settled
on proposing the extension instead.
Its a continuation of something that exists.
Its not something new; were not raising
taxes. So if its palatable today, then why raise
it? said Anna Kuhre, vice chair of the Yes on
Measure S Committee.
Rich Hedges, chair of the committee, said
the sales tax will also allow visitors and those
who use city streets to contribute particularly as a recent survey found nearly 40 percent of shoppers were from out of town.
But with six million Californians living in
poverty, charging more for goods could be
harmful to citizens and businesses, said Mark
Hinkle, president of the Silicon Valley
Taxpayers Association.
Taxes like this hurt and they hurt big time.
And rather than continue to tax people, we
think they deserve a tax break and that politicians should honor their promise that when a
temporary tax is put on the ballot, it really is
temporary. And unfortunately, its not,
Hinkle said.
Changing needs
The state has taken nearly $50 million from
San Mateo over the last 25 years and lost its
redevelopment agency, supporters contend,
while arguing a locally-controlled and long-

how the project might adversely affect traffic

and parking in the neighborhood.
Ultimately though, considering the size and
scope of the project, she said it has been a relatively seamless planning process.
Its been very smooth so far, said Fama.
She said health care district officials have
made an attempt to design the project in a
fashion which would allow it to look as a sort
of intermediary between the medical center,
and the rest of the homes and businesses in the
We have worked really hard to blend it
into the neighborhood, she said. We dont
want it to look like a big industrial complex of
any kind.

Though much of the residential units at the

site are currently proposed to serve seniors,
Fama said officials have emphasized looking
forward to offering services that will serve the
needs of future generations as well.
The whole process started by looking at
needs. And not needs of today, but the needs
of 10, 15, 20 years from now, she said.
The housing could serve as independent
senior living, but also potentially provide
some living spaces for disabled adults, said
Fama, with an eye to serving a wide cross section of the community.
We want to focus on some senior services, she said. And also on some multi-generational services.

term funding source is needed.

Patterson and Measure S supporters said
while the city used Measure L to stay afloat,
times and needs have changed.
I think Measure S addresses our concerns
going in to the future. What we want to do is
look out for future generations and thats what
Measure S is going to do by addressing infrastructure, Kuhre said.
There are approximately 19 miles of failed
streets estimated to cost between $30 million
and $35 million to repair, and improving the
citys levees as well as pump stations used to
protect against flooding is predicted to cost
another $23.5 million, Patterson said.
Although the flood control improvements
would help residents in the North Shoreview
and North Central neighborhoods who are
faced with costly insurance rates due to orders
from the Federal Emergency Management
Agency, Hedges said the entire city should be
concerned as its a matter of safety. It could
also affect neighbors as those in the flood
zone are inhibited from remodeling more than
50 percent of their home of special concern
in the event of any type of disaster.
Having a 30-year sales tax extension would
assist the city when it goes to bond for such
improvements, Patterson said.
Cheryl Angeles, CEO of the San Mateo
Area Chamber of Commerce, also noted
undertaking repairs sooner than later is key, as
construction costs will only rise.
Hinkle said while he supports infrastructure
improvements, the city should have been prepared for such costs and questioned why they
didnt plan ahead. He also suggests finding
other ways to cut back on expenses such as
not offering plump compensation packages to
From our perspective, if street repairs were
a priority, why havent they been taking care
of it? Hinkle said. We think that money
should be spent on road improvements and
infrastructure repairs rather than bloated
salaries and pensions and all the other
things government spends their money on that
isnt a priority.

welcoming place, a safe place. Its a very

expensive region, but we want San Mateo
to be beautiful and attractive to visitors, our
workers and residents.

Impact to businesses
In his ballot argument against the measure,
Hinkle said San Mateo County already has
some of the highest tax rates and continuing
the citys will undoubtedly affect businesses
by deterring shoppers.
Many already shop online to save, therefore
tax increases would harm local businesses,
Hinkle argues.
Proponents noted the average increase on a
new $30,000 car would be just $75. While
some members of the chamber varied on the
impact of the measure, Angeles said, overall
we concluded that we want San Mateo to be a


Fama said there would be a variety of public amenities included in the project as well,
which officials hope will make it more inviting and useful for as many residents as possible.
We are going to have a lot of open space so
it will be a convening place, a welcome place
for people to walk to, said Fama. We want
to incorporate all the latest thinking on
healthy urban living ... this is not for sick people, but for everybody to stay well.
The Burlingame City Council meets
Monday, Sept. 21, in Council Chambers, 501
Primrose Road. The meeting begins at 7 p.m.

Oversight and accountability

Hinkle argues the city should learn to live
within its means, like most people do.
The proposed general tax only needs a
majority threshold to pass and while the revenue would go to San Mateos general fund,
the measure would include a citizens oversight committee to monitor expenditures as
well as an annul audit.
Hedges and Kuhre said they both would be
interested in serving on the committee to
ensure the funds are spent wisely and in

sary to meet our transportation needs.
Hills Senate Bill 705 is a narrower spin-off
from legislation by Assemblyman Kevin
Mullin, D-South San Francisco, that was
vetoed earlier this year. SB 705 passed the
Legislature and is now awaiting approval
from Gov. Jerry Brown.
The bill would allow an agency or municipality, such as the San Mateo County Transit
Authority, to seek a half-percent sales tax
solely dedicated to transportation needs a
move that would still require two-thirds of
voters to agree.
While San Mateo County has long received
support through Measure A, a half-cent sales
tax approved by voters in the 1980s and reaffirmed in 2004, it appears transit officials may
seek another increase.
The San Mateo County Transportation
Authority is exploring the possibility of pursuing a 0.5 [percent] sales tax measure to
address the horrendous traffic along
[Highway 101] Given that Highway 101 is

Continued from page 1
as educator Ann Schneider all seek voter support on an all-mail ballot due Election Day,
Nov. 3.
As city officials begin the initial review of
two mixed-use developments proposed for the
region near the Bay Area Rapid Transit center,
council candidates believe the city stands on
the precipice of undertaking a project which
will forever shape the future of Millbrae.
We have one shot at looking for the highest
and best use of those sites, Gottschalk said of
the 116-acre region near the intersection of
Millbrae Avenue and El Camino Real, which
has been targeted for development of new
hotels, retail centers and residential projects.
All candidates were aligned in the belief
that Millbrae has a unique opportunity to
build a thriving community hub at the interchange of a variety of public transportation
lines including BART, Caltrain and
SamTrans, which also stands to benefits from
proximity to San Francisco International
Airport and the potential to become a future
high-speed rail stop.
Officials are currently considering two proposed developments which could kick off
construction in the region.
BART has hired Republic Urban Properties
to develop a project offering 164,000 square
feet of office space, nearly 47,000 square feet
for shops, more than 300 residential units as
well as a hotel, on property owned by the transit agency which is currently a parking lot.
And Vincent Muzzi, owner of Serra
Convalescent Hospital, has proposed to build
a project that would contain 267,000 square
feet of office space, 32,000 feet of retail
space, and 500 high- to medium-density resi-



built out, there may be a need to acquire more

revenue for Caltrain and SamTrans along with
additional funding to make operational
improvements to ease congestion, according
to a letter sent by SamTrans CEO Jim Hartnett
in support of Hills bill.
Caltrain is still working to identify the
remainder needed to complete a nearly $1.5
billion system overhaul that includes electrifying the tracks between San Jose and San
Francisco to account for an astronomical
increase in ridership. Providing officials with
the option to have more locally-controlled
sales tax revenue could help fund impactful
transportation projects, Hill said.
Examples of projects might be similar to
what Measure A funds have been spent on
over the last few decades such as SamTrans
shuttles, railroad and grade separation projects, ferry service to South San Francisco,
bicycle and pedestrian projects as well as
funds for Caltrain, according to Hills office.
Should Brown sign Hills legislation, taxes
in San Mateo County could go as high as 10
percent if voters approve a ballot measure by
2026. Due to various cities passing their own
sales tax measures, San Mateo and Half Moon
Bay have essentially maxed out the current
possibility of any other countywide increase.

Existing law allows the nine Bay Area

counties to increase sales taxes specifically
for transportation needs by either a half or
whole percent therefore SamTrans couldnt seek a quarter-cent increase, according to
Hills office.
Without this bill, a countywide sales tax to
improve transportation is impossible, Hill
Precedence for such an increase exists as
the Legislature granted exemptions to the 2
percent statutory cap to support countywide
transportation programs in Alameda, Contra
Costa and Los Angeles counties.
This session, Mullin had originally sought
to increase the cap to 3 percent for all counties
across the state, however, Brown vetoed the
proposal. Late in the session, Hill said he
agreed to push a similar proposal but narrow
it to transportation and for just San Mateo and
Monterey counties.
With the region facing a dire need to reduce
traffic congestion exacerbated by an increase
in jobs and a lack of housing, Hill said hes
hopeful the bill will provide opportunity.
Whatever were going to do in the future,
its going to take more money, Hill said.
Voters still need to approve it by two-thirds
vote. Its just opening the door to allow transit

agencies to put them on the ballot. Then its

up to those agencies to sell it to the voters.
Noting State Route 92 along the San MateoHayward Bridge is becoming an increasing
problem with commuters coming from the
East Bay and Highway 101 the main route for
anyone traveling between San Francisco and
Silicon Valley, Hill said local traffic is the
worst hes ever seen.
Supporters for the bill, including San Mateo
Countys City/County Association of
Governments, said theyre hopeful voters will
agree funding transportation improvements is
a worthwhile initiative.
Historically, San Mateo County voters
have shown a willingness to approve local
sales taxes to fund new and existing transportation services, invest in critically needed
infrastructure and support other vital local
services, C/CAG Chair Mary Ann Nihart,
also a Pacifica councilwoman, wrote in a support letter. This measure will provide the
capacity to allow for local decision makers to
weigh their options in addressing our transportation needs.

dential units.
Lee said officials should seize the opportunity to ensure whatever is eventually
approved near the station includes a significant financial benefit for the city.
There must be a positive effect for the
city, he said. I mean millions of dollars for
Lee favored the establishment of high-end
stores in the retail portion of the developments, which he said would help make
Millbrae a destination for shoppers from
across the region, and globe.
We have to do this thoughtfully, he said.
Papan said she would like officials from the
variety of transportation agencies, such as
BART, Caltrain and potentially SFO, to collaborate on a vision for the future of the site,
so travelers, shoppers and residents can use it
in the most efficient fashion possible.
Lets make this work, for once in our
lives, she said.
She also expressed the desire for the project
to include a variety of community benefits,
which would serve those who live in Millbrae.
We need to ensure the citys quality of life
is maintained, Papan said.
Schneider echoed those sentiments, and
said officials should look to get financial commitments which will account for the increased
demand the developments will place on city
infrastructure and open spaces.
She also expressed a sense of urgency
regarding the need to move quickly with the
construction projects, in part due to fear that
the momentum in the current economy may
not continue.
I dont want to force us to build quickly,
but if we wait a couple years, we may lose this
window, she said.
A foremost concern for Schneider is pedestrian safety along El Camino Real for those
accessing the transit, retail and housing center
once it is built.


stay in place through 2020, to raise revenue

for a $27 million settlement reached with the
San Francisco Baykeepers to improve city
infrastructure and protect against flow of
undesirable material in the Bay.
All candidates generally agreed though that
the citys aging infrastructure was in need of
repair, despite the frustration of some with the
escalating rates.

As officials consider making decisions

which will affect the future of Millbrae, such
as development near the train station, candidates agreed clear and consistent communication with residents should be a component of
those efforts Many of the candidates agreed
messaging to residents has been inconsistent
and inefficient at times in the past, and they
pledged an effort to improve that in the future.
We know our communication sucks, said
Lee, who believes there should be a centralized effort by the city to communicate important issues from both elected officials and the
office of City Manager Marcia Raines to the
general public.
Papan said she has been, and will continue
to be, accessible to those interested in discussing the citys affairs.
Gottschalk though admitted he has been difficult to contact in the past.
Ill admit, Ive been one of the worst at
returning phone calls, he said.
Schneider said she also considered accessibility a valuable asset in city government, and
if elected, one of her first orders of business
would be meeting with Raines to develop a
better communication plan.

Sewer rates
The need for better outreach was apparent
when the city recently raised its sewer rates,
which came as a surprise to many residents,
said Schneider.
Under the July council decision, the average
residential sewer bill will jump from $71 to
$86 per month beginning Aug. 1, and will
continue rising annually until reaching a maximum of $123 by July 1, 2019.
There will also be an additional surcharge
of $10.50 which will begin next year and
jump to almost $24 the subsequent year and

We are really trying to get the excitement
into downtown, Papan said.
Candidates concurred as well an effort to
beautify downtown Millbrae by ensuring its
cleanliness could make it more appealing to
Gottschalk said the city might be well
served to run a public awareness campaign
designed to encourage shop owners to clean
up their storefront, which would benefit both
the business and the city.
He said he has worked with Lee and Papan
on developing a business improvement district, which would encourage entrepreneurs to
pay toward a common fund spent in part to
clean up downtown.
Schneider said she would favor a greater
police presence downtown focused on writing
citations for those who are littering, which
may encourage patrons to be conscientious
about keeping the streets clean.
Lee though took issue with that idea, and
instead said he would like property owners to
take greater responsibility, since he believes
enforcement is typically an inefficient strategy in changing behavior.

Blame for Pain in Your Back and Neck

Sciatica and herniated discs are PGUFONJTVOEFSTUPPE

This pain affects everything that you do, from work to play, and
ultimately your quality of life.We are here to tell you that there is

Bulged Disc
Herniated Disc
Pinched /FSWFT

Is Surgery the Answer?

It is true that surgery may be the answer for certain types of back injuries.
When considering your options, ask yourself this question ...If there is a
solution to back pain that doesnt require surgery, is it worth exploring?

Before you consider surgery consider these points


The Solution: The DRT Method, (Disc Restoration Therapy)

The DRT Method is a 5 Step S.P.I.N.E. approach to healing & restoring
function to bulging and degenerative discs.
Spinal Decompression, Physiotherapy, Inter-Segmental Mobilization, Nutritional
Support, Exercise Rehabilitation.
The DRT Method allows for a much higher success rate by increasing hydration
and restoring health to your discs. This results in a more effective and lasting
solution to your pain. There are no side effects and no recovery time is required.
This gentle and relaxing treatment has proven to be effective... even when drugs,
epidurals, traditional chiropractic, physical therapy and surgery have failed....
Disc Restoration Therapy has shown dramatic results.

Who is a Candidate for Disc Restoration Therapy

Disc Restoration Therapy has been found to relieve the pain associated with disc
degeneration, herniated and bulging disc, facet syndrome and sciatica. It is our
opinion that patients should exhaust all non surgical/non-invasive treatments rst
before considering surgery.

Why Bay Area Disc Centers?

Dr. Thomas Ferrigno, DC and his team have vast experience in treating
patients suffering from moderate to severe disc disease.
Dr. Thomas Ferrigno, DC is Certied by and is also part of the Disc
Centers of America Team who are a national group of doctors that
have gone through extensive training that follow the protocols set up
by The International Medical Advisory Board on Spinal Decompression, and follows the protocols set forward by Dr. Norman Shealy the
Honorary Chairman, former Harvard professor, and probably the most
published doctor in the world on spinal decompression therapy.
