Highway 101 projects get OK


San Mateo County Transportation Authority allocates $108M in local sales tax money
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

With congestion along Highway 101 tightening alongside the burgeoning Bay Area
economy, the San Mateo County
Transportation Authority is allocating $108
million in local sales tax dollars toward projects aimed at alleviating commuters woes.
The authority is responsible for overseeing

revenue from Measure A, the voter-approved


half-cent sales tax originally passed in 1988
and reaffirmed in 2004; now it has about $125
million to improve conditions near Highway
101. While this recent allocation will not
exhaust its entire highway grant fund, the leftover money can be rolled over to future years
funding cycles and officials with the TA are
hopeful the stream of sales tax revenue will
support new projects.

The transportation tax brings in about $75


million a year, of which 27.5 percent or nearly $20 million is allocated toward highway
projects, said April Chan, chief officer of
planning and grants with the TA. For the first
time in three years, the TAs Board of
Directors selected Thursday night projects
sponsored by various cities and agencies to
receive much-needed support.

ROSEBURG, Ore. A gunman


opened fire inside a classroom at a rural
Oregon community college Thursday,
killing at least nine people before dying
in a shootout with police, authorities
said. One survivor said he demanded his
victims state their religion before he
started shooting.
The attack shattered the first week of
classes at Umpqua Community College

town of Roseburg,
about 180 miles
south of Portland.
The killer was

Chris
Harper
Mercer,
according to a govofficial
Chris Mercer ernment
who was not authorized to speak publicly and provided the
name on condition of anonymity.
Authorities shed no light on his motive

and said they were investigating.


Hannah Miles, a 19-year-old freshman, was in her writing class when her
teacher got a call from security saying
the school was in lockdown. She heard
gunshots from a neighboring classroom.
Huddled together in the locked classroom, the students and teacher heard a
footsteps outside and a mans voice call
out to them, Come on out, come on
out, Miles said. They remained quiet
and didnt open the door.

A proposal to build affordable housing


for teachers in the San Mateo Union High
School District received a potent endorsement from U.S. Rep Jackie Speier, D-San
Mateo, who publicly expressed her support
for the project.
In a letter sent to the district Board of Jackie Speier
Trustees, Speier said she supported a recommendation by Superintendent Kevin Skelly to build housing reserved for teachers, staff and other public agencies on
the former campus of Crestmoor High School in San Bruno.
Residents affected by the housing crisis can expect little
relief coming from federal legislators, she said, despite her
best effort, shifting the burden to local officials.
It is up to local agencies, such as the school board and
cities, to use the land that is available to plan for the long-term
needs of employees and the district, she said.
Skelly has said he recommended the housing project, in part,

Christmas jar cash theft


at library spurs aid by author
DOVER, Ohio The cash donations
stuffed into the large glass container on
the circulation desk at Dover Public
Library were meant to be an anonymous
holiday gift to a needy family, a gesture
inspired by the book Christmas Jars.
Now its author is extending that charitable spirit to the thief who swiped the cash,
some of which was found the next day in
the book drop with a handwritten apology.
Security video shows a man who
appears to be wearing pajama pants, a
hooded shirt and a jacket walking away
from the library with the jar and an estimated $1,000 in donations on Tuesday
evening. In doing so, he actually took
something less tangible, Christmas Jars
author Jason F. Wright told The (DoverNew Philadelphia) Times-Reporter.
Hes not stealing money he was
stealing hope, said Wright, of
Woodstock, Virginia. He said hed like to
sit down with the thief to explain the jars
charitable purpose.
I want him to know this: Someone is
on their knees right now praying for a
miracle. They dont know how to make it
happen for their family, and that jar is
supposed to be their miracle, Wright
said. Id love to meet him, buy him a
burger and chat. Ill bring him my
Christmas Jar from home and personally
deliver it to him. It wouldnt be $1,000,
but theres a years worth of change in
there.

Wine Walk connects sippers and shoppers


Downtown San Mateo Association hosts annual event Saturday
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

San Mateos 19th annual Wine Walk aims to


provide first-time visitors and longtime
patrons of downtown an opportunity to
explore the merchants and community who
make up the citys busy business district.
This Saturday, 18 businesses representing a
broad range of downtown from jewelers to
bookstores and clothing stores to a gym
will open their doors to pour a glass of vino
while serving as tasting rooms. Attendees can
sample a range of wines from regional and
international vineyards while several tasting
rooms will also serve pairings from local
restaurants.
The Downtown San Mateo Association has
hosted this locally beloved event to highlight
what the citys business district has to offer.
With new restaurants and businesses frequently popping up in the increasingly popular
downtown San Mateo, the Wine Walk offers a
festive occasion to familiarize oneself with
downtown, said DSMA Executive Director
Ann Fienman.
This is one of our signature events. Its the
19th year, its the longest single-running event
the DSMA has been sponsoring and we like to
have the opportunity during a beautiful season
of the year to encourage people whether
youre longtime locals or visitors from elsewhere to come check out whats new
downtown and rediscover what you might
have known from before, Fienman said.
Live music, prizes and the opportunity to
shop local will also mark this three-hour
event.
While the Wine Walk has been through different renditions in the nearly two decades
since it started, this year wont have any street
closures, said Fienman. This will be
Fienmans first year leading the event since
taking over the DSMA in April.

The DSMA came up with the idea originally, so its nice that theyre reconstituting it

Matthews said, while referring to a prior year
when the event was canceled. Im pleased
under the new leadership, theyre continuing
it. And the purpose really is to introduce people to our downtown and to all the great
restaurants and shops that we have and what
San Mateo has to offer. So its like a celebration of downtown.

rants, sometimes merchants are overlooked.


It gives people a different way to visit
shops that theyre not familiar with or wouldnt have an occasion to visit. We have everything from coffee shops to fitness providers to
straight-up retail, experiential retail, all kinds
of stores are participating, Fienman said. It
creates an opening to give people an incentive
to visit shops that they might have walked by
a million times but never stopped in. The
combination of Wine Walk gives it an extra
draw and theres even a little competition
amongst the merchants to have the most interesting tasting room.

Hurricane batters Bahamas; could threaten U.S.


By Ben Fox and Ava Turquest
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ELEUTHERA, Bahamas Hurricane


Joaquin unleased heavy flooding as it roared
through sparsely populated islands in the eastern Bahamas on Thursday as a Category 4
storm, with forecasters warning it could grow
even stronger before carving a path that would
take it near the U.S. East Coast.
The storm battered trees and buildings as
surging waters reached the windows of some
homes on Long Island in the Bahamas and
completely inundated the airport runway at
Ragged Island. There were no immediate
reports of casualties, according to Capt.
Stephen Russell, the director of the Bahamas
National Emergency Management Agency.
Prime Minister Perry Christie said he was
amending laws to mandate evacuations
because some people were refusing to move
into shelters.
We do not know the impact of 140 miles
an hour on those areas, he said, referring to
the hurricanes winds. We know its a horrific kind of experience.
Christie and other top-ranking officials also
deflected accusations that the government
was not prepared and that residents were not
properly advised.
People on the island of Eleuthera braced for
the approaching storm late Thursday as they
hauled sandbags and boarded up businesses.
Its going to be a scary storm, said 42year-old construction worker Jason Petty as
he pointed at towering clouds gathering to the
north as the sun went down in Eleuthera. It

Petty was helping friend Demetrius

prepare for the storm. Johnson had been sharing pictures of the damage in Acklins and
other islands through Whatsapp as he waited
for the storm.
People werent taking this storm seriously
until 48 hours ago, he said. But now its a

State hits water use target


for third straight month
By Scott Smith
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

FRESNO Californians cut water use by


27 percent in August, marking the third consecutive month that residents and businesses surpassed the 25 percent conservation
goal set by Gov. Jerry Brown to deal with
the relentless drought, officials said
Thursday.
The figures released by the State Water
Resources Control Board showed a slight
decrease in savings from the 31 percent posted for July a development that raised concerns among some officials.
However, board chair Felicia Marcus said
the slippage was not completely surprising
given the heavy rains that drenched Southern

California in July and prompted people to


turn off sprinklers.
The fact the numbers didnt drop precipitously shows that people get it, she said. In
a crisis people pull together and they hang in
there.
The savings figures were derived by comparing current usage to levels from the same
period of 2013, the year before Brown
declared a drought emergency.
The board also released figures showing
how much water was saved by communities
and how that compared to the state conservation mandate given to each area.
A total of 406 water suppliers reported
water use in August. The figures showed that
six communities missed mandated targets by
more than 15 percent.

Napa Valley wine train file lawsuit
SAN FRANCISCO A group of mostly
black women filed a racial discrimination lawsuit Thursday after they were removed from a
train that tours Napa Valley wineries, saying it
was humiliating to be thrown off a rail car
when loud and inebriated white passengers
were allowed to stay.
The 11 women sued Napa Valley Wine
Train Inc., claiming they were singled out
because of race and seeking $11 million in
damages. The company said in a statement
that it takes allegations of discrimination very
seriously and has hired a former FBI agent to
investigate.
The women said many of them were part of
a book club that meets regularly and had gathered on the train to discuss a romance novel.
Before the train left the station in Napa, a train

power went off overnight and phones were


down. Russell said some of the roughly 565
people who live there were trapped in their
homes.
Bahamas resident Shandira Forbes said she

Disdainful of fundraising,
Sanders raises big sums for 2016
WASHINGTON For someone who rails almost daily
against big money in politics, Bernie Sanders has suddenly
become pretty good at getting it.
In the past three months, the independent
senator from Vermont pulled in $26 million
for his Democratic campaign for president.
Thats several millions more than hes raised
from donors during his entire 26-year congressional career, and nearly as much as the
$28 million haul of front-runner Hillary
Rodham Clinton.
The sizable sum is all the more remarkBernie Sanders able because Sanders raised it without
engaging in the typical dance with donors
that has become a hallmark of running for president.
Sanders has held just seven fundraisers, compared to the more
than 110 fundraisers thrown by Clinton since she launched her
campaign in April. His cost typically around $100 to attend,
while hers routinely charge $2,700 the most allowed by law.
The receptions are more of a rally than the catered affairs at a
wealthy donors home that are typical of political fundraisers.
And forget about the boutique hotel retreats, strategic briefings
and other perks often given to high-dollar donors.
One event, held in the suburban Los Angeles backyard of
actor Larry Dilg, featured the host singing an ode to Sanders, a
version of the Neil Young song Rockin in the Free World
modified to include Sanders-centric lyrics like: got a man from
Vermont telling folks the truth.

Senators reach deal to reduce


prison time for some offenders
By Mary Clare Jalonick
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Senate conservatives and liberals on Thursday united


behind an overhaul of the criminal justice
system, a rare bipartisan agreement that
would allow some nonviolent drug
offenders to get reduced prison sentences
and give judges greater discretion in sentencing.
The legislation, years in the making,
comes as disparate voices have spoken as
one in saying the current system is broken,
from President Barack Obama to the
ACLU to the conservative Koch
Industries. At the same time, national
attention has focused on how police and
criminal justice treat minorities after several deaths of black men at the hands of
police, including high-profile cases in
Missouri and Maryland.
The legislation announced Thursday
would give judges the discretion to give
sentences below the mandatory minimum
for nonviolent drug offenders. Some cur-

rent inmates could get their sentences


reduced by as much as 25 percent by taking part in rehabilitation programs, if they
are deemed a low risk to offend again. The
bill would also create new programs to
help prisoners successfully re-enter society.
Among the senators goals: Make the
sentencing system more fair, reduce
recidivism and contain rising prison costs.
Since 1980, the federal prison population has exploded, in part because of
mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent drug offenders. Then, it was less
than 25,000. Today, it is more than
200,000.
This historic reform bill addresses

legitimate over-incarceration concerns


while targeting violent criminals and masterminds in the drug trade, Sen. Charles
Grassley, R-Iowa, chairman of the
Judiciary Committee.
The bill would eliminate mandatory life
sentences for three-time, nonviolent
offenders, excluding violent offenders,
sex offenders, inmates convicted of terrorism charges and some others.
The package will have some momentum in the Senate. It was negotiated by
some of the most powerful senators,
including Senate Judiciary Chairman
Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, and the top
Democrat on the panel, Vermont Sen.
Patrick Leahy.

Clinton seeking to organize


Latino voters ahead of primaries

House passes defense bill that Obama threatens to veto

NEW YORK Hillary Rodham Clintons campaign is planning a major push to organize Latino voters ahead of the Nevada
caucuses and early primary contests in
Texas, Florida and Colorado, all with an eye
toward connecting with Hispanics in the
2016 election.
The Democratic presidential candidate
will be in South Florida on Friday and will
hold campaign events next month focused
on Hispanic voters in San Antonio, Texas,
and Las Vegas, Nevada. Her campaign will
use the first Democratic presidential debate
Hillary Clinton in Nevada and another Republican debate
next month in Colorado to organize house
parties geared at garnering support among Hispanics.
Clintons pitch, called Latinos for Hillary, will also extend to
Hispanic lawmakers and elected officials, and will include an
address next week to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus
Institutes annual meeting in Washington.
Shes shown a deep commitment to the issues that Hispanics
care about over a long period of time. This isnt somebody who
showed up, decided to run for president and then a lightbulb
came on and she decided to reach out to the Hispanic community, said Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas.

WASHINGTON The Republicanled House on Thursday approved a


multibillion-dollar defense policy bill
despite a White House veto threat.
The vote was 270-156, more than
enough to sustain a veto.
The $612 billion bill covering new
ships, aircraft and pay raises for military
personnel authorizes an increase in
spending that President Barack Obama
had requested, but he strenuously opposes the way Congress did it.
Lawmakers increased defense spending by padding a separate war-fighting
account with an extra $38.3 billion. That

account for overseas contingency


operations is not subject to spending
limits.
A vote is scheduled in the Senate next
week.
The defense policy bill is one of the
few bipartisan measures in Congress
that has readily become law for more
than a half-century, but Obamas veto
threat jeopardizes the legislation.
The dispute is over whether Congress
should break through spending caps
when it comes to defense, but adhere to
them for domestic agencies. Obama and
his Democratic supporters say no.
Republicans argued that the bill authorizes money for national security amid
global threats.

Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, the


chairman of the House Armed Services
Committee, said the bill is critical for the
troops and for national security.
This is no time for political games,
Thornberry said during House debate.
This is the time to come together and
pass a bill that helps provide for the
countrys security. ... This is a dangerous
world, and it is getting more dangerous
by the minute.
Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the
No. 2 Democrat in the House, said using
the warfighting account employs a strategy to sneak around the ceilings
Congress imposed to check spending.
Hoyer said the special account is handled on a year-to-year basis.

Senate panel votes to lift 40-year-old U.S. ban on oil exports


By Mattew Daly
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The Senate


Banking Committee has endorsed a bill
to lift the four-decade-old ban on crude
oil exports, the latest sign of congressional support for legislation that
President Barack Obama opposes.

The banking panel endorsed the bill,


13-9, on Thursday, on a largely partyline vote. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North
Dakota sponsored the bill and was the
only Democrat to support it.
Heitkamp said the bill would lower or
stabilize gas prices, support jobs and
increase U.S. influence abroad. Despite
the largely partisan committee vote,

Heitkamp said she is optimistic that


Senate Democrats will support efforts to
lift the export ban.
The ban was imposed in the 1970s
amid an energy shortage.
The House Energy and Commerce
endorsed a similar bill last month.
The White House said it opposes both
bills.

Russia defends its military action in Syria


By Jim Heintz
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MOSCOW As Russian warplanes


carried out a second wave of airstrikes
Thursday in Syria, Moscow defended its
military involvement against Western
criticism of its intentions, saying it sees
eye-to-eye with the U.S.-led coalition
campaign on its targets in the country.
The claim of agreement with
Washington came amid conflicting
reports about Russias intentions in
Syria and whether it is targeting only
Islamic State and al-Qaida-linked militants.
The U.S. and its allies fear that
Russia, which has backed the family of
President Bashar Assad since the current leaders father was in power, is
using the air campaign as a pretext to go
after anti-Assad rebels that include

CIA-backed groups.
Russian
jets
appeared to be primarily bombing central and northwestern
Syria,
strategic
regions that are the
gateway to Assads
strongholds in the
capital of Damascus
Ash Carter
and the coast.
Warplanes
hit
locations of a U.S.-backed rebel group,
Tajamu Alezzah, in the central province
of Hama, said the Britain-based Syrian
Observatory for Human Rights. It added
that Tajamu Alezzah also was targeted a
day earlier.
Idlib province appeared to bear the
brunt of the attacks, activists said. The
province is controlled by a coalition of
rebel groups that includes the al-Qaidalinked Jabbat al-Nusra.

In Syrias chaotic civil war and rapidly shifting battlefield terrain, however,
it can be difficult to distinguish which
groups holds what territory.
On Wednesday, French Defense
Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said
Russian warplanes didnt hit Islamic
State, and U.S. Defense Secretary Ash
Carter had also said the Russians
appeared to have targeted areas that did
not include IS militants. Speaking
Thursday at the United Nations,
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey
Lavrov rejected suggestions that the
airstrikes were meant to shore up support for Moscows main ally in the
Middle East.
He insisted Russia was targeting the
same militant groups as the U.S.-led
coalition, which is conducting its own
airstrikes in Syria: the Islamic State,
also known as ISIL, the al-Qaida-linked
Jabbat al-Nusra and other groups.

UNITED NATIONS In an impassioned speech interspersed


with bouts of dramatic silence, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu on Thursday condemned the Iran
nuclear deal as empowering Tehran to
spread unrest in the Mideast while leaving
the country capable of making an atomic
bomb.
Netanyahu described Israeli-U.S. bickering over the deal as a disagreement within
the family, and the United States also
downplayed any lasting effects of the fallout
over an agreement that Washington praises
Benjamin
and Israel condemns.
Netanyahu
The Israeli leaders speech to world leaders at the U.N. General Assembly was notable for his rhetorical
flourishes, including 47 seconds of silence about 15 minutes into
his address.
Netanyahu insisted the nuclear agreement lets Iran support terrorism in the Mideast and bolsters its plan to liquidate the Jewish
state. He said the U.N. and most governments have responded to
Irans intent to destroy Israel with deafening silence, and then
stopped speaking to emphasize his point, glowering at hushed
delegates before finally resuming his speech.
Netanyahu kept attacking the accord, which has already gone
into effect despite intense lobbying by Israels allies in
Washington.
This deal doesnt make peace more likely, he said. By fueling Irans aggressions with billions of dollars in sanctions relief,
it makes war more likely.
After Netanyahu again denounced the Iran deal in his speech,
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said President Barack
Obama is proud of the strong relationship between our two
countries and the unshakeable bond when it comes to our commitment to Israels security.
Iran denies any interest in nuclear weapons. It describes its
atomic activities as peaceful, focused only on generating energy
and advancing science and medicine. The Obama administration
insists the deal is effective in crimping the activities Tehran could
use in making an atomic bomb.

Afghan troops push into city


of Kunduz, Taliban in retreat
By Lynne ODonnel
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KABUL, Afghanistan Government


troops seized control of the strategic northern
city of Kunduz on Thursday, the Afghan president announced, following a six-hour battle
that saw the Taliban insurgents who had held
it for three days largely melt away.
Despite the claim of victory, residents hunkered down inside their homes said they could
still hear explosions and shootings in the
provincial capital, whose fall to the Taliban
was a humbling defeat for President Ashraf
Ghani and raised questions over whether the
U.S.-trained military was capable of defending the country now that most coalition forces
have withdrawn.
Intense fighting is continuing in the streets

of the city, said Zabihullah, speaking by


phone from his home near the main city
square. The situation is really critical and
getting worse, and Ive just heard a huge
explosion from a bomb near my house.
Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi
said the operation to retake Kunduz was
launched late Wednesday, with ground forces
moving from the airport where they had
massed since the city fell over roads that
had been mined by the insurgents.
By 3:30 a.m. Thursday the battle was over,
he said, and Kunduz was under government
control. He conceded, however that troops
were still going street to street to clear out
final pockets of Taliban resistance, and it
could be some time before all insurgents had
been cleared from the city and its surrounding
districts.

Yes on Measure X

ts been a long road for


those contemplating the best
way to help solve overcrowding issues for the San
Mateo-Foster City Elementary
School District. After the failure
of Measure P in 2013, district
officials began a long community
outreach and input effort with its
Next Steps Committee, comprised
of a wide breadth of community
members with different points of
view and ideas for how best to
meet the districts capacity needs.
Measure P, a $130 million bond
request, had essentially aimed to
rebuild and expand Bowditch
Middle School in Foster City and
renovate Knolls in San Mateo so
it could be used once again as a
district school. The reasons for its
failure were manifold but it did
not reach the required 55 percent
for passage, instead only receiving 46.6 percent.
Two years later and officials are
asking for a different measure,
Measure X, which would raise
$148 million for facility improvements to contend with overcrowded schools. With 12,500 students,
the district is the largest in San
Mateo County and is expected to
grow by about 200 students per
year. Put simply, the district is at
capacity and could even be considered overcapacity. And its
only gotten worse in the last two
years since the district floated
Measure P.
While the Daily Journal supported Measure P, it was not without
its faults. Included in the bond

Editorial
language was money for technology that, while important, was not
critical to meeting the districts
capacity needs. There was also
some concern of equity in ensuring that all schools, particularly
those in San Mateos flatlands,
received the same attention as
other schools. There is also the
matter of balancing the needs of
two cities, Foster City and San
Mateo, when dealing with capacity
issues. There is sometimes conflict
between residents of the two cities
who share this school district to
ensure their individual citys needs
are met. Thats understandable,
but there is always the strong
notion that what is good for the
district is good for all. There
should be an emphasis on that.
Still, the district is seeking to
provide something for all with
Measure X though the bond language is vague in its exact plans.
Though that is the style for such
measures these days, it is a disappointing development though it
can be argued that it also allows
for more flexibility as the project
list proceeds.
Should the measure pass, it will
help the district build 50 classrooms in both cities and, in particular, in San Mateo at George Hall
and Sunnybrae elementary
schools, as well as Abbott,
Bayside STEM and Borel middle
schools. New gyms will be built

at the middle schools too. There


are plans to construct a new
school on the College Park campus in North Central San Mateo
that would serve the neighborhood and eliminate the need for
students to go to schools further
away while still maintaining the
popular and successful Mandarin
immersion program at the school
now.
Middle school enrollment
growth in Foster City will be
addressed by renovating the campus at Bowditch, and adding
capacity with new buildings as
well as relocatable classrooms.
District officials are also negotiating to buy Charter Square in
Foster City but should that not
come to fruition, they would likely consider adding new buildings
at Brewer Island and Audubon in
Foster City to address capacity
concerns at Foster City elementary schools.
Measure X is not perfect, but no
measure seeking to address so
many needs and community wish
lists can be. However, it is a solid
approach to contending with the
districts pressing and immediate
need for additional capacity that
was honed through a long and
involved community process. This
measure will simply add classrooms to the district.
The individual impact of the
measure is itself mild, $15 per

Good riddance to
redevelopment agencies
Editor,
In the Daily Journal story,
Affordable housing law wont
benefit San Mateo County in the
Sept. 29 edition, your reporter
notes that three years ago, redevelopment agencies were dissolved, and California cities lost
a long-standing means to fund
affordable housing projects. The
article ignores the fact that redevelopment agencies had caused
near-expropriation of real estate
and distortion of taxpayer money
that finally caught up with them.
Possessing the power of eminent
domain, California redevelopment
agencies under the guise of
unsupportable city council find-

ings of blight resulted in governmental taking of private property for automobile row, golf
courses, swimming pools and
even entertainment hubs.
Redevelopment agencies commonly seized privately-owned real
estate at bargain prices and sold it
cut-rate to favored developers for
alleged public purposes to eliminate blight. Thousands of people were displaced from their residences in San Francisco and other
California cities. Good riddance
to redevelopment agencies. May
they never be reincarnated.

bowling alleys have been closing

Put out fires of


uncontrolled
rent increases
By Carol Lamont

he fires raging all around


us are helping people
grasp the ramifications of
what the loss of a home really
means. Fires generated by uncontrolled rent
increases are
also displacing
and harming
many residents.
This displacement is too often
not just temporary. Those
being displaced
by huge rent
increases often have few options
and most must leave the Bay Area
entirely. I have seen the emotional
distress in the faces of people facing a total loss of the lives they
have lived. I have heard from
renters who go to bed each night
with the anxiety that the fire will
change direction overnight and
now engulf their home, their lives.
The fires generated by uncontrolled
rent increases are contagious. They
are driven by greed.
The steady upward increase in
rents is outpacing the average
increase in most workers wages.
When people cannot pay the huge
rent increases pushed onto them,
they have 30, or at most 60 days, to
move out of their home; and most
have nowhere else to go. They
struggle to find where to move and
what to do with their possessions
until they can resettle and rebuild
their lives somewhere else. Their
displacement results in job losses
or long commutes on the road back
to work with less time with their
family. Students displaced from
schools suffer from the impact on
their education, their relationship
with friends, sports teams, doctors,
care providers and family connections. We all suffer from the destabilization of our community by the
loss of our neighbors, students,
church and community members,
service providers, volunteers,
employees and friends.
High rents are also sucking energy out of the local economy.
Increasing numbers of residents
cannot afford to shop much at local
stores or eat at local cafes because
they spend so much money on rent.
Others, who work here but can no
longer afford to live here because
high rents have forced them to
move beyond the Bay Area, dont
have time to shop here either
because they must spend so much
time on the road commuting to and
from work.
To correct this, we must press
our elected leaders to prevent the
fires generated by unsustainable
rent increases by adopting reasonable rent stabilization and just
cause for eviction protections for
residents. We must also press for
the creation of high-quality deed
restricted affordable homes for the
long-term stability of our community. Not taking such actions would
be a little bit like approaching fire
safety by not adopting safe building codes.
Carol Lamont is a member of the
Board of Directors of the Housing
Leadership Council of San Mateo
County.

NEW YORK A late turn gave the


stock market a meager gain to start the
month Thursday, a day after it finished
its worst quarter in four years.
Investors were looking ahead to
Friday when the government releases its
monthly jobs report. Economists forecast that employers added 200,000
workers to their payrolls last month.
Strong hiring would likely raise expectations that the Federal Reserve will
increase its benchmark interest rate at its
next meeting later this month.
If the jobs report were to show a gain
of more than 200,000, people will start
wondering about the Feds next move,
said Brad McMillan, chief investment
officer at the Commonwealth Financial
Network. That could mean were in for
another big drop, he said.
Mounting concerns about slowing
global economic growth and the timing
of the Feds first interest-rate hike in
nearly a decade battered markets over
recent months.
Without any big developments to
drive the action on Thursday, trading
appeared aimless. The Standard &
Poors 500 index took a sharp fall in the

afternoon then climbed back to finish the
day with a slight gain.
The S&P 500 added 3.79 points, or 0.2

Experian: 15M have info stolen in hack of T-Mobile data


By Tali Arbel

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Hackers have stolen


personal information belonging to about
15 million T-Mobile wireless customers
and potential customers in the U.S.,
including Social Security numbers,
home addresses, birthdates and other
personal information.
In the latest high-profile breach, the
hackers got the information from credit

reporting agency Experian, which TMobile uses to check the credit of consumers applying for phone plans and
financing for devices. Experian said TMobile customers who applied between
Sept. 1, 2013 and Sept. 16, 2015 may
have had their information stolen.
Experian said it immediately notified
law enforcement authorities after discovering the hack and that there is no
evidence to date that the data has been
used inappropriately.
T-Mobile customers can sign up for

two free years of credit monitoring services at www.protectmyID.com/securityincident , a service owned by Experian.
That arrangement prompted sarcastic
responses on Twitter. T-Mobile CEO
John Legere, who is active on Twitter,
responded to many tweeters unhappy
with the resolution offered.
I hear you re: Experian as service
protection option. I am moving as fast as
possible to get an alternate option in
place by tomorrow, Legere wrote

CSM out to pay back American River


By Terry Bernal

Game of the Week

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

A week after getting stunned with a 43-30


loss to unranked San Joaquin Delta, the No.
5-ranked College of San Mateo Bulldogs
have to reload for one of their biggest nemeses of a year ago.
No. 8 American River pays a visit to
College of Heights Stadium Saturday at 1
p.m. And the Bulldogs hope to be as inhospitable hosts as the Beavers were a year ago.
On Oct. 4, 2014 while San Francisco
Giants slugger Brandon Belt was etching his

place in postseason lore with an epic 18th


inning home run to defeat the Washington
Nationals in Game 2 of National League
Division Series American River was putting the finishing touches on a 24-14 drubbing of CSM.
The Bulldogs entered last seasons Week 5
matchup ranked No. 1 in the state. But that
all changed after they suffered their first loss
of the season. The Beavers catalyst was
now-graduated sophomore quarterback
Tanner Trosin, who gained 244 total yards.

I thought they played OK, CSM defensive line coach Dave Heck said. We just
couldnt tackle their damn quarterback.
Three current sophomore defensive linemen played in that game for CSM, and are
intent on not allowing a repeat performance.
The stern core three defensive tackles feature
some size in 6-2, 290-pound Fou Polataivao
and 6-1, 285-pound Anthony Ameperosa;
but laying his claim to the third starting
tackle position is the stealthier 6-2, 260pound Cody Brown.

[Brown] is a pretty strong kid pound for


pound, Heck said. If youre going up
against linemen who are 6-6, 340 pounds,
youve got to have good technique. Hes a
good technician.
One of five Serra alumni on roster at CSM,
Brown is anticipating American River as
again posing a matchup that will define the
course of the season.

Menlo takes Ocean lead Warriors


By Nathan Mollat

coach to
take leave

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Both the Menlo School and MercyBurlingame girls water polo teams came
into their Peninsula Athletic League showdown facing adversity.
Menlo was without head coach Matt
Jones, who had to take an emergency leave
of absence earlier this week. Mercy, meanwhile, had to face the Knights without their
starting goaltender, Marena Kibblewhite,
who suffered a concussion in a car accident a
few weeks ago.
The ace in the hole for Menlo, however,
was that it has one of the best interim
coaches around to fill in for Jones Kyle
Utsumi, who coached the Knights to four
Central Coast Section titles before stepping aside following the 2005 championship season. He is also a longtime coach
with the Stanford water polo club.
I met (most of the team) yesterday,
Utsumi said. We tried to keep things simple today.
Utsumi probably didnt have as big an
impact on the game compared to Mercy,
having to play its backup goaltender. And
Menlo capitalized, scoring a couple of fluky
goals on its way to a 6-3 win over the
Crusaders at Serra Thursday afternoon.
A starting goalie makes a difference,
said Mercy coach Rocio Medina.
Two of Menlos first three goals came on
floaters from way out on the perimeter.
Trailing 1-0 late in the first period, Jane
Zafran lofted a shot from eight meters out
and it found the back of the net to tie the
score at 1 with 14 seconds left in the period.
Midway through the second period, Zafran
took a similar shot from a bit further out
with the same result, the score giving the
Knights a 3-1 lead at the time.
Those helped get our offense going,
Utsumi said.
Said Medina: Lobs that went in wouldnt
have gone in with [Kibblewhite in the
cage].
Menlo also used a pair of late goals at the
end of periods to give them the momentum.
Zafrans goal tied the match late in the first,
while Chloe Ebrahimian scored on a drive

coach Steve Kerr will take a leave of
absence as he recovers from back surgery
and will be replaced on an interim basis by
Luke Walton.
The Warriors announced Thursday that
Kerr will need time off for rehabilitation and
recovery. Kerr underwent back surgery to
repair a ruptured disc in late July and had follow-up
surgery
in
September.
After the first two
days of training camp, I
realized I need to take a
step back and focus on
my rehabilitation in
order to be ready for the
grind of another NBA
season, Kerr said in a
Steve Kerr
statement. As I noted
last week, my summer was difficult and no
fun due to the multiple back surgeries. At
this point, I simply want to get healthy and
back to my normal daily routine on and off
the court.
The Warriors said they dont know yet
how long Kerr will be out.
At this point, the most important thing
is to make sure Steve is healthy, completely
recovered and ready for not only the rigors
of a long NBA season, but day-to-day life in
general, general manager Bob Myers said.
We dont anticipate the recovery process
will be long term, but as of today we dont
know the exact timeframe. Well evaluate

Scots take down Dons to stay unbeaten in Bay play


By Terry Bernal

Menlo-Atherton 3, Burlingame 1

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The Bears (4-0, 10-3) rallied of a 15-25, 25-16, 25-16, 2521 comeback at Burlingame (2-2, 6-10). The Bears had three
players record double-figure kills. Coutney Foliaki had a
match-high 13 kills while Jacqueline DiSanto and Lenna
Collins each had 10. Alexa Roumeliotis continued her backrow tear with 33 digs and added four aces. Setter Kirby Knapp
had 40 assists. For Burlingame, Julia Haupt had eight kills and
Natalie Ballout had six blocks.

Maya McClellan spent last year as a benchwarmer. This


year, however, she is doing little else besides roasting opposing defenses from the left side of the court for the Carlmont
Scots.
The sophomore fired a team-high 17 kills as the Carlmont
volleyball team scored a critical win Thursday at home over
Aragon. The Scots faltered in the Game 1, but bounced back to
win it in four sets 21-25, 25-17, 25-20, 25-19.
With the win, Carlmont (4-0 in PAL Bay, 12-5 overall)
remains one of two undefeated teams in Peninsula Athletic
League Bay Division play. Menlo-Atherton is the other, as the
Bears downed Burlingame Thursday in four sets. The Bay
Divisions two top teams collide next Thursday at M-A.
For McClellan, this season began with her on a mission to
prove she belonged in the starting rotation, Crader said.
Against Aragon Aragon (2-2, 9-8), she showed how far shes
come since being the fourth outside hitter on the Scots depth
chart a year ago as she produced one of the most explosive leftside performances for Carlmont in recent memory.
I have a lot of energy when the games are exciting and
close, McClellan said.
The match was certainly that, as Aragon middle hitter
Melanie Moore played out of her mind in Game 1. The 5-10
junior had a match-high 19 kills, including eight in the first
set.
But Scots head coach Chris Crader made some quick adjustments going into Game 2, namely pairing their middle blocker extraordinaire Alexis Morrow with Moore. Morrows
defense loomed large in the second set; and while she totaled
just five kills through the opening two games, she finished as
strong and totaled 14 kills four-and-a-half blocks in the match.
With Alexis, weve got someone who jumps like [Moore]
does, which gives us a fighting chance, Crader said.
The Scots jumped out to a quick 8-2 lead in Game 2 and turned
the tide of the match. The back-row defense of Carlmont libero
Erin Alonso was a game-changer. The senior tabbed 17 digs in
the match, and forced Aragon to overextend its shots. The
Dons managed just six kills in the set but committed 11 errors.
We couldnt connect, Aragon head coach Kelsey Stiles
said. Our serve receive struggled, our blocking struggled. We
just couldnt get on the same page at the same time.
The Dons didnt go away though. In Game 3, Carlmont
jumped out to a quick 6-3 lead, but Aragons senior outside hitter Kaelah Velisano fired back-to-back kills to close to within
1. Aragon soon tied it 8-8 on a left-side kill by senior outside

hitter Anna Joshi, but Carlmont took the lead right back, and
would not trail again in the set, on one of senior Mia Hogans
eight match kills.
Perhaps just as importantly in Game 3, Morrow started gathering momentum. It was her best single-game performance, as
she tabbed five kills and one-and-a-half blocks. With Morrow
taking on more offense, though, it allowed Moore to get back
into the swing of things as she totaled six kills in the set.
Even with [Carlmonts tall blockers], she still did really
well, Velisano said.
But as Carlmont took charge in Game 4, it was obvious
Morrow had just been getting warmed up.
[Morrow] always kills it, McClellan said. She has these
amazing jumps and she can just hang in the air. I love watching her play.
With such little playing time last year, McClellan had plenty of time to sit and marvel at Morrows ups. This year, however, McClellan is flashing plenty pizazz of her own. While
Morrow saved plenty in the tank for an explosive Game 4 performance, McClellan was just as dominant from the left side.
The final set saw the Dons in it early as they battled to take
a 9-8 lead. But the Scots owned it from the service line, totaling seven set aces, including senior Alex Lay going back-toback to up Carlmonts lead to 16-11. Morrow then rocked a
pair of kills to give the Scots leads of 17-12 and 18-13. From
there, it was all McClellan, who won the final three Carlmont
points to close it out.
Her confidence is a lot higher (than last year), Crader said.
Shes really dynamic and really explosive.
For the Dons, the loss marks their second straight. The first
came Tuesday when they fell to reigning APL Bay Division
champion M-A in four sets.
Yeah, its two losses in a row, but to arguably the best two
teams in the league, Stiles said. The girls are battling and
they know what they have to do to get better. Thats all they
want to do is work and get better.

The Cougars (1-3, 9-7) got their first PAL Bay Division
win 25-22, 25-20, 21-25, 25-18 over Hillsdale (0-4, 6-10).
Half Moon Bays Kimmie Odasz returned to action for the
first time in over a week to record 15 digs. Hailey Merkes
paced the offense with a match-high 19 kills and added 14
digs. Olivia Hedding had 14 kills and 16 digs. Mia Cordes
recorded six blocks for the Cougars while Kenzie Mell had
five. Setters Gabbi Cozzolino and Becca Moules combined
for 41 assists. The Knights got a team-high 16 assists from
Cherene Uale and Jenna Smith added 14 kills.

Westmoor (3-1 in PAL Ocean, 8-9 overall) won a wild one

Packers present big challenge to 49ers D


By Chris Biderman
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SANTA CLARA Things arent getting


any easier for the struggling San Francisco
49ers, who were outscored 90-25 in their last
two games. Theyre set to take on Aaron
Rodgers and the undefeated Packers on
Sunday as they look to avoid a 1-3 start.
Through three weeks, Rodgers is completing passes at the highest rate of his career and
hoping to beat San Francisco for the first
time since 2010. That four-game stretch
includes consecutive playoff losses to Colin
Kaepernick under former 49ers head coach
Jim Harbaugh.
But with Harbaugh gone, along with former
defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, the 49ers
are relying on new defensive coordinator Eric
Mangini to create a scheme to stop the reigning league MVP. His defense allowed 676
yards passing over the last two weeks.
Hes very efficient, Mangini said. Its

one of those unique things, because even


when you disrupt Aaron Rodgers, the plays
he can make outside the pocket are different
than some other guys.
Rodgers is coming off a five-touchdown,
333-yard performance in a 38-28 win over
the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night.
His 10 touchdown passes lead the NFL.
The 49ers were able to contain Rodgers in
those four wins since 2012 thanks to a standout defense that finished in the top-10 in
scoring in each season under Harbaugh and
Fangio. But after three games this year, San
Francisco ranks 31st in points allowed.
Were familiar with the team, third-year
safety Eric Reid said. Hopefully, we can use
that experience to our advantage. But theyve
been playing great this year, so we definitely
have to be on our Ps and Qs.
The last time the 49ers faced Rodgers came
in frigid Green Bay, when they held him to
177 yards passing and just one touchdown in
the wild card round of the playoffs in January

2014. San Francisco won that game 23-20 on


a 33-yard field goal from Phil Dawson as time
expired.
Reid is one of four defensive starters
remaining on the 49ers new-look defense
that played in that game, along with linebacker NaVorro Bowman, linebacker Ahmad
Brooks and cornerback Tramaine Brock.
Were three weeks in, so a lot of teams are
still figuring out the stuff they want to run
and the stuff thats working, Rodgers said.
Theyre whittling down their plans and continuing to add new stuff to the mix that they
may have worked on in training camp.
Rodgers, 31, might be playing at the
highest level of his 11-year career. Hes
been without two of his three best receiving
threats for chunks of the season, including
star receiver Jordy Nelson, who tore his
anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee
in a preseason game against the Steelers.
One of Nelsons understudies, Davante
Adams, has been in and out of the lineup

with a left ankle injury.


Those injuries led to Green Bay bringing
back veteran receiver James Jones, 31, who
spent 2014 with the Oakland Raiders. Jones
has four touchdown catches and 219 yards
receiving in three games.
(Jones) is a big body with good speed and
very good body control, Rodgers said. He
does a good job of going through his routes
and to the proper spot on time. He can win
one-on-one matchups, and thats what you
have to do in this league. You have to be able
to get off the press and make plays when the
ball is in the air.
NOTES: 49ers RB Reggie Bush returned to
practice this week for the first time since sustaining a left calf strain in the season-opening win against the Vikings. ... TE Vernon
Davis missed practice Wednesday, but
returned Thursday as a limited participant
after suffering a knee injury in Sundays 47-7
loss in Arizona. His status for the Packers
game is unknown.

Raiders Carrie doing well in switch to safety


By Josh Dubow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ALAMEDA TJ Carrie admits he was a


little apprehensive when the Oakland
Raiders coaches came to him last week to
talk about playing safety.
With good reason.
Carrie hadnt played the position since
high school, lining up exclusively as a cornerback for his four years in college at Ohio
as well as his first season-plus as a pro with
the Raiders.
But with starter Nate Allen sidelined by a
knee injury and more depth at cornerback
than safety, the Raiders decided to move
Carrie to safety last week. It paid off.
Youre definitely going to be hesitant
because youre going into a zone you
havent practiced and arent comfortable
with as much, Carrie said. But being athletes that we are, youre able to adjust to the
situation and understand they wouldnt have
put you back there if they didnt think you
had the skill set to do it. The more and more
I practiced it last week I got more comfort-

able and I was able to go


out there and provide
some plays.
With Allen out at least
until November with a
knee injury, Carrie could
be seeing more time at
safety in the coming
weeks. He has practiced
with the safeties during
TJ Carrie
the open portions of
practice this week and could play there
again on Sunday at Chicago.
Coach Jack Del Rio said the decision will
depend in part on matchups but he was
pleased with how Carrie fared his first shot
at safety and is happy with the versatility it
gives the defense.
Hes a smart, tough football player, Del
Rio said. He has good cover ability, solid
tackler. It was an opportunity to get him
involved and get some other people on the
field as well.
The Raiders struggled in the secondary
after Allen got hurt early in the season
opener against Cincinnati. Taylor Mays

was signed off the street and started the next


game against Baltimore only to get pulled
at halftime for Larry Asante.
Mays did not play at all on defense the
next game with Asante serving as a reserve.
With Carrie moved to safety, Neiko Thorpe
took over as a starting cornerback alongside DJ Hayden and recently signed David
Amerson came on as a reserve.
Carrie enjoyed the move although there
was an adjustment in terms of learning
which angles to take, what players to key
on and the need to focus on the entire field
instead of a smaller slice as a cornerback.
Making the transition easier was the fact
that the Raiders have a coach and player
who successfully made the same move in
their careers.
Assistant Rod Woodson came into the
NFL as a cornerback and was an All-Pro five
times at the position before switching to
safety midway through his career. He made
All-Pro at his new position and played in
two Super Bowls, solidifying a Hall of Fame
career.
Oakland safety Charles Woodson made a

similar transition three years ago in Green


Bay. After being a top-flight cornerback and
winning AP Defensive Player of the Year as
a cornerback in 2009, Charles Woodson
moved to safety his final year in Green Bay
in 2012 and stayed there for the past three
years with the Raiders.
Both Woodsons and safety coach Marcus
Robertson, an All-Pro at the position himself, gave Carrie plenty of helpful pointers.
They all have a lot of experience playing
in the back end, Carrie said. Im able to
pick their brains and understand what I need
to be looking at, what angles I need to be
taking, how far my depth needs to be, all the
little intricacies of the position. I can go to
them and ask and theyve been very helpful
with that.
NOTES: Pass rusher Khalil Mack was
limited in practice by a hip injury. There
was no additional information. ... DE Justin
Tuck (knee) and S Charles Woodson (shoulder) were back on a limited basis. ... RB

Any time we stop a score, its important, Taufoou said. So, those were definitely big stops.
The highlight of the two came on second

Affeldt to retire at end of the season


By Janie McCauley
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Torn between being


a present father to his three young sons and
a professional pitcher, Jeremy Affeldt nearly
walked away from baseball for good at the
All-Star break before manager Bruce Bochy
and catcher Buster Posey talked him into
sticking it out a couple more months.
Now with the season wrapping up, the 14year veteran is making the move he thought
about months ago to turn his attention to
family and further involvement with several
causes he has worked with for years.
The left-hander announced Thursday this
would be his last weekend of baseball as the
reigning World Series champions end the
year without a playoff berth. Affeldt, 36, was
the 2014 World Series Game 7 winner at
Kansas City and is completing an $18 million, three-year contract and his seventh
season with the Giants.
Affeldt, Santiago Casilla, Javier Lopez
and Sergio Romo have been part of four core
relievers on each title team three of the past
five years.
Im very thankful I was able to come
through in some big situations to help us
win championships, Affeldt said. To say I
was a part of that for me is a tremendous
honor. To say I won three world championships on the same team is an amazing
feat.

While Affeldt had kept


open the idea of pitching
one more year when this
season began, he said he
would listen to his sons
to help him make the
decision if they wanted him home, that might
win out. He and wife
Jeremy Affeldt Larisa discussed the possibility before the season.
Affeldts sons 8-year-old Walker, 5year-old Logan, and Kolt, 3 are eager to
have him home.
Affeldt also pitched for Kansas City,
Colorado and Cincinnati. He has missed 34
games this season for two stints on the disabled list, with a strained pitching shoulder
and a left knee injury. He twisted the knee
during an Aug. 24 off day while playing with
his sons outside Spokane, Washington,
where he grew up and still lives.
That was just one of several fluke injuries
the lefty sustained in off-the-field mishaps
in recent years.
Ive been accident-prone all my life, he
said.
In April 2011, he sprained his right knee
and went on the DL after reaching out to
catch his then-4-year-old, 60-pound son
when the boy jumped off the couch to greet
his father. On Sept. 8 that year, he sliced his
non-throwing hand while separating frozen

hamburgers during a barbecue with his family on an off-day. The paring knife he was
using pushed through a hamburger patty and
deep into his hand. Affeldt came within a
millimeter of an artery and underwent surgery about eight hours later to repair nerve
damage in his pinkie.
Hes going to have to hire a full-time
trainer, Bochy joked. Hes made enough
money to have a guy staying at the house.
After going 1-2 with a 2.70 ERA in 67
appearances over 63 1-3 innings during the
2012 season, Affeldt received his last contract. He has been part of a stable bullpen
that has been such a key for Bochys club in
winning three of the past five World Series
titles.
You can make an argument were not putting on any of those rings without this guy,
reliever Javier Lopez said.
The ex-military brat who is open about his
deep faith released a book in 2013, To Stir
a Movement: Life, Justice, and Major League
Baseball. He acknowledged he overcame
homophobia when he initially joined the

Dodgers hold off Giants


By Janie McCauley
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Brett Anderson


pitched two-hit ball into the eighth in his
final regular-season start, and the NL West
champion Los Angeles Dodgers wrapped up
their road schedule with a 3-2 victory over
the San Francisco Giants on Thursday.
Anderson (10-9) retired 14 straight batters following Kevin Frandsens one-out
single in the third before Jarrett Parker singled to start the eighth. The lefty made his
31st start for a career high, topping his 30
outings in 2009 as a rookie with Oakland.
Healthy for the season again, he also
reached a high for innings with 180 1-3.
Just three balls left the infield against
Anderson and no San Francisco runner
reached second base until an eighth-inning
throwing error by second baseman Howie
Kendrick. Anderson gave up four hits, struck
out three and didnt walk a batter in 7 2-3
innings.
Tim Hudson (8-9) allowed three runs and
three hits in 2 1-3 innings in the final start
of his 17-year big league career.
Chase Utley hit a sacrifice fly after Andre
Ethiers leadoff triple in the second, Adrian
Gonzalez added an RBI single and Ethier
drove in a run on a groundout for the NL West
champion Dodgers. Los Angeles split the
four-game series with the reigning World
Series champions, bouncing back a day
after being shut out 5-0 on Mike Leakes
two-hitter.
The 40-year-old right-Hudson said his
farewell last weekend across the bay in
Oakland where his career began in 1999,
pitching opposite former Giants lefty Barry
Zito.
Manager Bruce Bochy expected Hudsons
outing to be short considering he has been
bothered by a tender left hip. Hudson walked
off to a roaring ovation in the third, tipping
his cap in every direction before going
through a lineup of teammates who moved
in front of the dugout rail to offer hugs and
handshakes.
Hudson will be honored during the weekend along with left-handed reliever Jeremy
Affeldt, who announced his retirement
Thursday and entered to relieve Hudson.
Hudson is the majors active wins leader
for a few more days with 222 career victories. He won his first World Series ring last
season and winds up having thrown 46,631
pitches against 13,005 batters.

In the book, he also acknowledged how he
returned $500,000 to the Giants after a typo
in the contract gave him an accidental bonus
before the 2010 season.
He began his book and life story in
Thailand, where Affeldt about 10 at the
time was grabbed by a man and pulled
toward a building as he fought to get away,
only to have his dad catch up and help him
escape.
Affeldt has become a strong supporter of
efforts to stop sex trafficking, and believes
thats where he could have been headed that
day. His father was stationed in Guam at the
time, so they traveled regularly in Asia.
Going into Thursdays series finale
against the Dodgers, Affeldt had a 43-46
career record and 3.97 ERA in 772 appearances spanning 924 2-3 innings with 28
saves. He joins right-hander Tim Hudson
heading into retirement, and both will be
recognized during weekend games against

With the win, Menlo (6-0) now

Ocean Division title, while Mercy
(5-1) will need to beat the Knights
in the second round of the schedule
to have a shot at winning an Ocean

The fact her team did not give up
and kept fighting to the end was a
good omen for Medina.
We still have a chance,
Medina said. [We] played a good
game. The second half was the better of the two halves. We closed
the gap.

Walton, the son of Hall of Famer


Bill Walton, played collegiately at

spent 10 years in the NBA. He was

Damon charms as stranded


astronaut in The Martian
By Sandy Cohen
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Without Matt Damon, the solitary fight for


survival on Mars would be lonely indeed.
Alone on screen for most of his scenes as an
astronaut stranded on the red planet, the
Oscar-nominated actor is the winning heart of
Ridley Scotts epic space adventure, The
Martian.
With Damons charm center stage, Scott
has crafted an exciting, hopeful story about
humanity at its best: The brightest minds

working together for a common goal that


bridges international borders and forges a
feeling of unity.
Affable and intelligent, playful and determined, Damons Mark Watney is so endearing
and entertaining as a narrator and subject, its
easy to see why the world would want to save
him.
The story begins with Watney accidentally
left behind during a NASA mission to Mars.
When a fierce storm forces an emergency
evacuation from the planet, he disappears in
the chaos and is presumed dead. He isnt, of

course, and as his fellow astronauts mourn


him during their months-long journey back to
Earth and NASA officials struggle with how
to explain his death to the public, Watney
wakes up, injured and alone.
But hes incredibly optimistic and resilient.
He fixes his wound with minor surgery and
immediately goes about prolonging his survival, knowing it could be years before a
manned spacecraft returns to Mars. He puts
his skills as a botanist and engineer to work,
devising a way to grow crops in the arid soil
and make water by burning hydrogen. He

rewires old equipment from a past Mars mission in hopes of communicating with NASA.
Watney is curious and talkative, keeping
himself company by narrating his every
move. He tracks his obstacles and progress in
daily video logs. He chats to himself in
footage from the helmet cam in his spacesuit,
cracking jokes he knows no one can hear.
Seeing his efforts through various camera
perspectives the helmet cam, a bunk cam
inside his sleeping quarters, a dashboard cam-

Damon and Scotts


return to space
By Jake Coyle
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TORONTO The Martian was briefly stranded


in Hollywood development when Ridley Scott
reached out to Matt Damon, the star attached to the
stalled projected.
The script by Drew Goddard (Cabin in the
Woods) from Andy Weirs novel was full of the
kind of nerdy humor and science geekery that
few would associate with the masculine epics
Scott is known for. But the 77-year-old British
director tends not to concern himself with
such trifles.
He goes, Weve never met, recalls
Damon, barking an impression of the nononsense Scott. And I said, No, weve
never met. He goes, The script is good!
And I said, Yeah. He goes, Its (expletive) great. Yeah. Why arent we making
this? I said, I guess we are.
The unexpected combinations of talent that
went into making The Martian are fitting for
a movie of such hybrid entertainments. Its a
space tale more grounded in science fact than
fiction; a 3-D popcorn movie full of mathematics;
an ode to science thats funny.
The Martian, which 20th Century Fox will
release Friday, is that rare earthly creature: a blockbuster with brains. There may be water on Mars, as
NASA announced Monday, but theres been a drought
at the multiplex.
Damon stars as astronaut Mark Watney, whose
crewmembers, thinking him dead from a flying piece
of debris, leave him behind on Mars as they
rush to flee a sand storm. Alone on the red
planet, Watneys fate is seemingly sealed,
but through his own scientific ingenuity,
improvises his survival. NASA
(including an ensemble of Jeff
Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor and
Jessica Chastain) mounts a rescue
mission with its own scientific
dexterity.
Rarely has there been a film
more celebratory of the space
program and the problem-solving power of science. NASA
has embraced the film with
celestial warmth, screening it
for the crew on the
International Space Station.
The solitary extreme of
The Martian may be
reminiscent of Gravity,
but its closeness to
another recent space

spirit of space exploration Christopher

MICHAEL CHAMBERLAIN SHOW AT


MERCY CENTER ART GALLERY IN
BURLINGAME. Works by Bay Area artist
Michael Chamberlain are on display at the
Mercy Center Art Gallery until Oct. 31.
From a San Francisco scene of Last Light on
Pacific to the simple Toaster, the artist
searches for beauty in the commonplace.
Inspired by the California Impressionists and
the landscapes of Edward Hopper, he began
painting 12 years ago with a few basic supplies and a stack of library books.
Chamberlain said: My first painting took
four days to complete. It was a real struggle.
Painting was more difficult than I thought,
but once I started I couldnt stop. I find endless inspiration in simple, everyday objects
and scenes. Painting has helped me slow
down and look more carefully at the world
around us. Chamberlains work can be
found in collections across the U.S. as well
as in Europe and Australia. He currently
shows his work at the Studio Gallery in San
Francisco, Elliott Fouts Gallery in
Sacramento, Collector in Berkeley, and John
Natsoulas Gallery in Davis. The Mercy

FOSTER CITY EXHIBITS BETH
GROSSMANS EXHIBIT COMMEMORATING THE LAW OF SEEDS. Foster
City presents artwork calling attention to the
issue of seed law, that which protects the
right to save seeds and keep them in the public domain. Bay Area artist Beth Grossman
has compiled a Bill of Rights for Seeds and
shares it as a visual art exhibit currently on
view at Foster Citys William E. Walker
Recreation Center. Grossman was inspired

by the constitutions of Bolivia and Ecuador,


each of which includes Articles on the Rights
of Nature. She compiled a Bill of Rights
specifically for seeds, scribing them with a
quill pen on 10 vintage seed bags that are
also painted with images of the stages of germinating corn from seed to mature plant.
Grossman uses art and participatory performance to stimulate conversation, focus
attention on the environment, and encourage
public participation. Based in Brisbane, she
has collaborated internationally with individuals, communities, corporations, non-profits
and museums. Grossmans exhibit may be
viewed at 650 Shell Blvd. in Foster City
from Oct. 6 to Oct. 29. In conjunction with
the exhibit, a proclamation Honoring the
Ancient Knowledge of Seeds that Nourish
and Sustain All Living Beings will be presented at the City Council meeting on Oct. 5

Dreams, death on the


menu at Freds Diner
at the Magic Theatre
By Judy Richter
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

As the play opens, a man lies


dead while a nearby woman holds a
baseball bat and looks at him.
How they got to that point is
revealed in English playwright
Penelope Skinners Freds Diner,
making its American premiere at the
Magic Theatre.
Set shortly before Christmas in
the present, the action unfolds in an
English roadside diner modeled
after one in the U.S. in the 50s.
Fred (Donald Sage Mackay), its
45-year-old owner, employs three
waitresses. One is his 17-year-old
daughter, Melissa (Katharine Chin).
Another is 52-year-old Heather
(Julia McNeal). The other is 31year-old Chloe (Jessi Campbell),
just back from a year of traveling,
mainly in Thailand.
All three women have dreams.
The most ambitious is Melissa, who
has applied to study law at Oxford.
Chloe wants a better life, but shes
not sure how shell achieve it.
Heather wants to become the
diners manager. Shes also trying to
re-establish her life after being
imprisoned for murdering her hus-

band after years of severe physical


abuse.
Completing the cast are two customers. One is a regular, Sunny
(Terry Lamb), a 57-year-old motorway driver who has spent most of
his life in India. Hes attracted to the
wary Heather. Finally theres the
down-on-his luck, 21-year-old Greg
(Nick Day).
Most of the tension comes from
whether Melissa will be admitted to
Oxford, whether Heather will go
out with Sunny and who will
become the new manager.
A deeper source of tension is the
relationship between Fred and
Melissa. An early scene and some
subsequent scenes hint at emotional
abuse or even incest along with an
unhealthy mutual dependence.
Aided by the sure direction of
artistic director Loretta Greco and
her cast, playwright Skinner gradually builds to the inevitable yet surprising conclusion.
McNeals Heather is especially
interesting, serving as a mother figure for Melissa while beginning to
harbor hopes for a future with
Lambs kindly Sunny.
Campbells Chloe may be a flake,
but she can be ambitious as well as

The director sought out Nolan to see an
early cut of Interstellar and decided the
similarity wasnt an issue. I mean, theyre
making another Batman movie already,
laughs Damon, alluding to the upcoming
role for his friend, Ben Affleck.
Space, of course, is also a familiar frontier
to Scott, who forever endeared himself to
sci-fi fans early in his career with Blade
Runner and Alien. Decades later, hes
found himself firmly back in the genre with
The Martian and 2013s Prometheus,
for which hes currently prepping one and,
he says, possibly two sequels.
I loved it, says Scott. I realized on the
first day how much I missed it.
The Martian, which largely drew raves
out of its premiere at the Toronto

International Film Festival, has been portrayed as a return-to-form for Scott following critical disappointments like Exodus
(which was slammed for its largely white
cast) and his Cormac McCarthy adaptation
The Counselor.
The press can be very negative, Scott
says. I never let it get to me, not for a long
time. The last time I got upset about press
was Blade Runner. No one liked it.
Having Scott aboard, Damon says, mitigated his concerns about playing most of his
scenes alone. Like a video diary, Watney
speaks the majority of his lines to cameras
situated around the Mars habitat.
You have no one co-signing your fantasy, Damon says. It is kind of like when
you were a kid making a game up in your
room. Its entirely dependent on not crack-

ing. It was the challenge of the movie and


kind of why I wanted to do it.
Besides prepping the Prometheus
sequel, Alien: Paradise Lost, Scott is
managing his busy production company,
Scott Free Productions. Damon, following
his short hiatus, has packed in a shoot in
China with Zhang Yimou, a new Bourne
film with director Paul Greengrass and a
planned
Alexander
Payne
movie
(Downsizing).
But The Martian aligned the mens
orbits for a mutual return to space, propelled
by the workmanlike Scott. Not that the
director is one to get all cosmic about it.

Mastering the easy art of cooking dried beans


By Sara Moulton
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Until I went off to college and became a


vegetarian out of financial necessity,
beans really werent a part of my life.
But once I found myself pinching pennies while sharing a house with three
other women, beans became a great and
affordable source of bulk and protein. And
though the initial motivation was saving
money, we eventually grew to love the
unique flavors and textures of beans, and
I have continued to cook with them ever
since.
And the best way to make beans?
Starting with dried beans. Why take the
time to cook dried beans when you can
find a wide variety of canned available?
There are several reasons.
Dried beans cooked from scratch have a
more uniform texture than most canned
beans (some of which tend to get mushed
in the can). Also, you can control what
gets added to the beans (particularly salt).
And they cost much less than canned
beans. A 16-ounce bag of dried beans
yields roughly 5 or 6 cups of cooked
beans, while a 15-ounce can of cooked
beans yields roughly 1 1/2 cups. Finally,
homemade beans freeze beautifully, so
why not make a big batch on the weekend
and use it in recipes later in the week?
But there are a few things to keep in
mind regarding dried beans.
Dried beans seem to last forever on the
shelf, but beware: The older the bean, the
longer it will take to cook. So try to buy
your beans from a store that has plenty of
turnover.

There has been a long debate about


whether to soak beans before cooking
them. The main reason for the pre-soak is
to speed up the cooking time. And a presoak does indeed do that, by about 30
minutes. But Cooks Illustrated magazine
has uncovered an even better reason. If
you soak beans in salted water overnight,
they not only absorb some of the salt
(which seasons them), they also come out
more tender. For years we were all told
that salt made beans tough, but its quite
the contrary. So I recommend a pre-soak
in salted water.
Acid of any kind, however tomatoes,
citrus, vinegar, wine, etc. is the enemy.
It will prevent the beans from cooking
properly. If you want to add a touch of
acid to your beans, add it only when the
cooking is nearly done.
The basics for cooking almost all dried
beans (except dried lentils and split peas,
which cook so quickly you can make
them from start to finish in about 20 minutes) are below. I wont offer exact cooking times because the timing can vary
widely depending on the variety and size
of the beans, as well as how fresh they are.

MASTER RECIPE FOR


COOKING DRIED BEANS
Start to finish: 13 to 15 hours (15 minutes active)
Servings: 10
1 pound dried beans
3 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons kosher
salt, divided
1 medium yellow onion, quartered
1 medium carrot, cut crosswise into 4
pieces

1 celery stalk, cut crosswise into 4


pieces
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 sprigs fresh thyme
Sort through the beans to pick out any
random stones or sticks among them, then
rinse and drain the beans.
In a large bowl or pot, dissolve 3 tablespoons of the salt in 4 quarts of water. Add
the beans, stir, then cover and soak
overnight at room temperature.
The next day, drain the beans and rinse
them. In a large saucepan or stockpot,
combine the beans with 7 cups of cold
water. Stir in the remaining 2 teaspoons
salt. Bring the mixture to a boil, skimming
the scum that rises to the surface with a
skimmer or slotted spoon (that scum is
protein solids). Reduce the heat to a simmer and simmer the beans, regularly
skimming the scum, until no more scum
rises to the surface.
Add the onion, carrot, celery, garlic and
thyme, then simmer for 30 to 60 minutes,
or until the beans are just tender. Drain the
beans, reserving the cooking liquid (if
desired) and discard the onion, carrot, celery and thyme stalks. Use the beans in
recipes or freeze them in 1- or 2-cup portions.

No matter how you cook dried beans stovetop and a slow


cooker save the cooking liquid. It is delicious added to
Soak the beans as described above, then soups and stews.

SLOW COOKER METHOD

drain and rinse them. In a slow cooker,


combine the beans with the 2 teaspoons of
salt, onion, carrot, celery, garlic and
thyme. Add enough water to cover the
beans by 1 inch, then cover and cook on
high for 4 to 6 hours, or until completely
tender.

Start to finish: 45 minutes (15 minutes
active)
Servings: 3
For the burgers:
1 pound 80 percent lean ground beef
3 tablespoons ssamjang
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
For the condiment:
3 ounces grated white cheddar cheese
1 1/2 tablespoons ssamjang
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon lemon juice
To serve:

3 slices fresh watermelon, slightly smaller


than the burger bun
3 tablespoons chopped kimchee
3 burger buns, preferably potato buns
To make the burgers, in a medium bowl
combine the beef, ssamjang and a pinch each
of salt and pepper. Divide into 3 patties, then
refrigerate for 15 to 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the condiment. In a small
bowl, combine the cheddar, ssamjang, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Refrigerate until
needed.
When ready to cook the burgers, heat a
cast-iron skillet over medium. Add the burgers and cook until browned on the bottom,
about 3 minutes. Flip the burgers and cook for
another 2 minutes.
Divide the cheese mixture evenly, spreading it over each patty. Reduce the heat to low,
cover the pan and cook about 2 minutes, or
until the cheese melts. Transfer each burger to
a bun bottom, them top the burgers with a
watermelon slice and 1 tablespoon of kimchee. Finish with the bun tops, then serve
immediately.

the countys transit officials collaborate


with the state, cities and the county to
address the impacts of the areas economic growth.
Everyone understands the traffic on
101 is atrocious. Its affecting peoples
quality of life, Canepa said. We need
to make an investment in our infrastructure and we need to make sure we have
the throughput and coupled with what
were doing around Caltrain and public
transportation, hopefully we can find a
solution to alleviate this traffic thats
frustrating people.
The TA opted to fund projects that are
directly within or impact the congested
Highway 101 corridor.
Recipients include San Mateos and
Caltrans collaboration on the State
Route 92/El Camino Real Interchange
Project. The TA will extend $16.2 million toward the project that will convert
the dangerous intersection into a partial
cloverleaf, realign the off- and on-ramps
and add signalized intersections on El
Camino Real.
San Mateo City Manager Larry
Patterson said hes pleased the TA is
supporting the project that will improve
safety by eliminating the short weave
distance between drivers merging on and
off State Route 92 as well as deter existing backups when drivers spill onto the
westbound portion of the highway at El
Camino Real.
The Transportation Authority has
been an outstanding partner since we
first advanced the concept for improving
the safety and function of the interchange. The project is currently in final
design. This funding will allow us to go
to construction in the near future,
Patterson wrote in an email.
The largest Measure A expenditures

cycle was $56.4 million toward Menlo


Parks
Highway
101/Willow
Interchange Project. That will convert
the existing full cloverleaf into a partial
cloverleaf interchange, replace the existing overcrossing with additional lanes as
well as sidewalks and enhanced bike
paths, according to a TA staff report.
Another $10.7 million will be spent on
San Carlos Highway 101/Holly Street
Interchange Project, which will convert
the existing full cloverleaf to a partial
cloverleaf interchange while adding new
and widened bike lanes. The citys
request for another $3 million to construct a separate pedestrian/bicycle
bridge was denied, as it wasnt eligible
under the conditions of the TAs highway program, according to the report.
Redwood City, which originally
sought about $14 million for interchange
improvements at Woodside Road, will
be given $2.65 million to help add vehicle lanes, sidewalks and bikeways, as
well as expand and signalize the ramp
intersection, according to the report.
The TA also agreed to allocate $22
million to help fund the environmental
review phase of four other projects along
the countys segment of Highway 101.
Belmont sought $7.8 million to fund
its Ralston Avenue Corridor Complete
Streets Improvement, an initiative that
involved a multi-year study to enhance
the citys main east to west thoroughfare
for all modes of travel. However, the TA
determined the project wasnt as competitive as the others that provided more
countywide or regional benefits, according to the report.
While allocating $108 million is significant, Canepa and Chan emphasized
the importance of regional collaboration
and using local funds to leverage more
investment.
Transportation is expensive, you
think of $100 million as a lot of money.
It is, but how do you program those dollars for various projects to get the state
and federal mix. Thats what pulls it all

together, Canepa said. Its really hard


nowadays for one entity to fund a project. When you have multiple sources of
funding, projects that were on the back
burner are now able to move forward.
Thats what makes this award of
Measure A dollars important.
The TA is continuing to investigate
alternate projects that could alleviate
congestion by funding environmental
studies. Projects include extending an
HOV or commuter lane from Whipple
Avenue to the San Mateo County and
San Francisco border, Chan said.
Another option may be to consider an
auxiliary lane dedicated to those exiting
Highway 101 somewhere between
Interstate 380 and the northern border of
the county, Chan said.
Moving forward, the TA hopes to have
its highway improvement grants issued
on a two-year cycle, although it may
take several years before it has as much
to dole out as it did this time around,
Chan said, noting about $16 million
came from the original Measure A that
expired in 2008.
Ultimately, the TA is responsible for
carrying out the intention of the voters
who approved the sales tax through
2033. But promoting collaboration is
key if any entity wants to make a dent in
the regional congestion, Chan said.
[Measure A] doesnt provide sufficient funding. We generate about $75
million a year, so we work very closely
with the cities and the county and the
[Metropolitan
Transportation
Commission] to see how we can leverage our Measure A funding so we can do
a lot more. Because highway projects
are not cheap, so you have to work
closely with others, Chan said. And
theres so many areas where we need to
make improvements both for congestion
relief and safety improvements.

NOTICE OF PETITION TO
ADMINISTER ESTATE OF
Margaret Joan Sarmento
Case Number: 126054
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of: Margaret Joan Sarmento. A Petition for Probate has been filed
by David Sarmento in the Superior Court
of California, County of San Mateo. The
Petition for Probate requests that David
Sarmento be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of
the decedent.
The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted
unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the
authority.
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: Oct 09, 2015 at
9:00 a.m., Department 28, Superior
Court of California, County of San Mateo,

and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the
California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section
9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law.
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court a
Request for Special Notice (form DE154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk

Continued from page 1
to make the district more attractive to educators who might be concerned about the ability
to afford the considerable expense of the local
housing market.
The board had bandied Skellys proposal
during a meeting Thursday, Sept. 26, but postponed a decision due in part to concerns
regarding whether the housing project had
been properly communicated to the public.
The housing project is contingent on a proposal to move Peninsula Alternative High
School, the districts continuation program,
from the Crestmoor campus into a building
owned by the San Mateo County Office of
Education on Rollins Road in Burlingame,
which is currently home to the districts charter school Design Tech High School.
D.tech is slated to move onto the campus of
the Oracle Corporation in Redwood Shores in
coming years, making space available for the
proposed facilities shuffle to begin.
The board will again address the housing

OREGON
Continued from page 1
Police soon arrived, Miles said, and after
students were convinced that it was indeed
officers, they opened the door.
It was like a huge burden had been lifted,
she said. A huge sigh of relief that we were
going to be OK.
Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin said at
least two officers acted heroically in the
shootout, but it was not clear if the gunman
was killed by authorities or whether he took
his own life.
At a news conference, a visibly angry
Hanlin said he would not name the shooter.
I will not name the shooter. I will not give
him the credit he probably sought prior to this
horrific and cowardly act, he said.

proposal Thursday, Oct. 8.


Board President Marc Friedman, who has
advocated for the housing project, said he
appreciated Speiers support.
Im glad Congresswoman Speier is behind
our plan, he said. That demonstrates that it
is a good idea and a good plan.
He said he hoped her endorsement would
help make the project seem more viable to
those who might be skeptical of it.
Trustee Linda Lees Dwyer, who has questioned components of the plan, said she too
appreciated Speiers perspective.
I agree with her that the federal government is not going to solve anyones housing
crisis, she said. I think she is absolutely
right, and that it does need to be addressed
locally.
But as officials consider moving forward
with gathering more information about the
benefit and costs of the housing plan, Dwyer
said it is imperative to work with the community in San Bruno to address their concerns as
well.
I want to know if this is something they
would support, she said of San Bruno officials and residents.

As district officials have considered alternative uses for the Crestmoor campus, San
Bruno residents have reiterated their interest
in keeping the athletic fields at the school
open for public use.
District officials made a commitment during the previous meeting to ensure that would
be possible, but have yet to identify the size
and scope of the housing project, and how it
might affect the fields.
Lees Dwyer said she has yet to hear from
San Bruno residents or officials, or members
of the district teachers union, regarding interest in developing housing at the site.
She said she would like to find a mutually
beneficial agreement that would serve the district, as well as the greater San Bruno community.
If this could be a win-win for students, and
those who provide services, and the city of
San Bruno, it would be a good thing, she
said.
Friedman said district officials are in the
process of reaching out to the San Bruno community, as well as other elected officials such
as the San Mateo County Board of
Supervisors, to consider supporting the hous-

ing project.
Hopefully, they will come along and
endorse this like Congresswoman Speier did,
he said.
Speier, in her letter, said she was inspired to
grant support for constructing affordable
teacher housing by similar, local projects.
Local leadership on the housing crisis is
imperative. It takes courage, she said. The
good news is that we already have a model of
success to follow in the example of the San
Mateo County Community College District.
Skelly has said he has worked closely with
Chancellor Ron Galatolo on understanding
how the community college districts program
is able to run so effectively, with an eye to
eventually building the high school districts
version around that model.
In light of what she considers to be a variety
of benefits, Speier urged officials to move forward with the proposal.
I strongly encourage the Board of Trustees
to allow
housing construction on the
Crestmoor site, she said.
The San Mateo Union High School District
Board of Trustees will meet Thursday, Oct. 8.
to discuss the issue.

Mercer had been living at an apartment


complex in nearby Winchester. Yellow police
tape surrounded the building Thursday night.
A neighbor, Bronte Hart, said Mercer would
sit by himself in the dark in the balcony with
this little light.
Hart said a woman she believed to be
Mercers mother also lived upstairs and was
crying her eyes out Thursday.
Sarah Cobb, 17, was in a writing class when
gunfire erupted in the next room. She heard a
shot, but thought a book had fallen. Then a
teacher said they needed to get out, and the
class ran out the door as she heard two more
shots.
I was freaking out. I didnt know what to
think, what to do, she said.
Distressed parents rushed to the county fairgrounds, where students were being taken by
bus to reunite with families.
Jessica Chandler was at the fairgrounds des-

perately seeking information about her 18year-old daughter, Rebecka Carnes.


I dont know where she is. I dont know if
shes wounded. I have no idea where shes at,
Chandler said.
Carnes best friend told Chandler that her
daughter had been flown by helicopter to a
hospital, but she had not been able to find her
at area medical centers.
The sheriff said 10 people were dead and
seven wounded. An FBI spokeswoman said
the gunman was included in that number.
Earlier, Oregon Attorney General Ellen
Rosenblum said 13 people had been killed. It
was unclear what led to the discrepancy.
Its been a terrible day, a grim-faced
Hanlin said. Certainly this is a huge shock to
our community.
Hours after the attack, a frustrated President
Barack Obama spoke to reporters at the White
House, saying the U.S. is becoming numb to

mass shootings and that the shooters have


sickness in their minds.
Repeating his support for tighter gun-control measures, the president said thoughts and
prayers are no longer enough in such situations because they do nothing to stop similar
attacks from happening a few weeks or
months later. He challenged voters wanting to
confront the problem to vote for elected officials who will act.
Police began receiving calls about a campus
shooting at 10:38 a.m. The school has a single
unarmed security guard.
Kortney Moore, 18, said she was in a writing class when a shot came through the window and hit the teacher in the head.
The gunman then entered the Snyder Hall
classroom and told people to get on the floor,
she told the Roseburg News-Review newspaper. He told people to stand up and state their
religion before opening fire.
