Cops killed by former Marine


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BATON ROUGE, La. Three


Baton Rouge law enforcement
officers investigating a report of a
man with an assault rifle were
killed Sunday, less than two weeks
after a black man was fatally shot
by police here in a confrontation
that sparked nightly protests that
reverberated nationwide.

Three other officers were wounded, one critically. Police said the
gunman was killed at the scene.
Although he was believed to be
the only person who fired at officers, authorities said they were
unsure whether he had some kind
of help.
We are not ready to say he acted
alone, state police spokesman
Major Doug Cain said. Two per-

sons of interests were detained in


the nearby town of Addis.
A witness described the gunman
as wearing all black and carrying
extra clips of ammunition. He was
identified as Gavin Long of
Kansas City, said East Baton
Rouge Parish Mayor-President
Kip Holden.
The 29-year-old black man
served in the Marines from 2005

to 2010, reaching the rank of


sergeant.
He

from June 2008
to

medals, including one for good


conduct, and received an honorable discharge. His occupational
expertise was listed as data network specialist.

San Carlos has snagged another


business away from Redwood City,
as Goetz Brothers departed downtown this weekend for a new, bigger space on Industrial Road.
The sporting goods store transformed over the years from a card
and gift store when it first opened
in downtown Redwood City in
1937 to a business that rented,
repaired and sold typewriters.
Owner Steve Goetz remembers
the day his family moved the business three doors down on
Broadway to its current location at
2629 Broadway in 1958.

New, improved street lights


should soon be installed throughout South San Francisco, addressing the concerns of residents who
claimed to feel endangered while
walking neighborhood streets
they believe are too dark at night.
City Manager Mike Futrell told
residents of the Pecks Lot neighborhood gathered at the Martin
Elementary School gymnasium

Thursday, July 14, that light poles
along their streets would be the
first to receive new bulbs.

The
neighborhood
near
Highway 101, bounded by Sister
Cities Boulevard to the north and
Airport Boulevard to the east,
should begin receiving the new
lights in the next couple weeks,
said Futrell, and the entire project
should be completed by the end of
August.
Street lighting has become a

since residents pleaded with city
officials earlier this year to
improve illumination, in hopes of

Wheeler Plaza demo to start


San Carlos property to change hands to developer
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT

This month, KB Homes will take over


ownership of Wheeler Plaza in San Carlos
as it prepares to build a condominium complex in the heart of downtown.
The developer then plans to start demolishing buildings on San Carlos Avenue and
Laurel and Walnut streets starting in August
to make way for a new mixed-used development featuring 109 condominiums for sale
and 10,000 square feet of new retail space on
about 2.65 acres.
The proposal to redevelop the plaza first
came before the council nearly 20 years
ago.
It was also delayed in recent years as the
city and state grappled over a couple of
properties once owned by the citys redevelopment agency, which was dissolved in
2011.
KB Homes plans to start building a parking garage at 616 Laurel St., the former
Foodville site, in mid-October that will take
up to 14 months to complete.
A transformer will be installed and utility
undergrounding is also planned for midOctober that will take about 10 weeks to
complete. The developer and city officials
are working with Pacific Gas and Electric,
however, to expedite the process.
After the parking garage is open to the
public, construction will then start on the
condominiums which is expected to be completed by 2019.

Judge reignites debate over researching jurors online


By Sudhin Thanawala
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Mining


prospective jurors Facebook,
Twitter and other social media
accounts is common practice for
many attorneys looking to spot
biases that might cost their
clients a fair trial.
The American Bar Association
has said the searches are ethical,
and a ruling by the Missouri
Supreme Court bolstered arguments that attorneys have a duty
to do online research of prospective jurors. Still, some judges

have deemed the online searches


invasive and banned them.
Now, a federal judges ruling in a
copyright battle between Silicon
Valley heavyweights Oracle and
Google has reignited debate about
the practice while also offering a
potential middle ground.
U. S. District Judge William
Alsup, raising concerns about
prospective jurors privacy, said
attorneys could research the jury
panel, but would have to inform it
in advance of the scope of the
online sleuthing and give the
potential jurors a chance to
change online privacy settings.

Otherwise, they had to agree to


forego the searches.
Alsup said prospective jurors are
not celebrities or public figures
... but good citizens commuting
from all over our district, willing
to serve our country.
Their privacy matters, the
judge said in March.
Attorneys for Google and Oracle
agreed to do without the searches.
The ruling prompted a fresh
wave of discussion in legal circles
about how aggressively attorneys
should be allowed to investigate
jurors online personas and how
beneficial the searches are.

What Judge Alsup has done is


truly unique, said Thaddeus
Hoffmeister, a professor at the
University of Dayton School of
Law who studies the impact of
social media on the legal system.
This may be a route other judges
suggest going forward.
Prosecutors in a recent criminal
case accusing FedEx of drug trafficking requested that a judge issue
the same ultimatum as Alsup.
FedEx objected, and the issue
became moot after the judge, not a
jury, heard the case. All charges
were dismissed against the shipping giant in June.

We as a society want the attorneys and litigants to know enough


about these people so they can
legitimately get rid of those who
know about the case or have a
bias, said Greg Hurley, a lawyer
who studies juries at the National
Center for State Courts. On the
other hand, we dont want people
digging into the jurors private
lives.
Paula Frederick, who chaired the
American Bar Association committee that in 2014 gave the green
light to researching jurors social
media sites, said people understand
their postings arent private.

Police tackle rise in gambling slaphouses


By Amy Taxin
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WESTMINSTER On a quiet
suburban California cul-de-sac
where neighbors hang wind
chimes and grow rose bushes, one
three-bedroom house stood out. At
night, dozens of cars swarmed outside. Groups of young women
headed inside the fenced-off home
dotted with security cameras. The
next morning, the street was littered with syringes.
What looked like a typical single-family home in a suburban
neighborhood on the edge of
Orange Countys Little Saigon had
been turned into an illegal gambling house where betters plunked
down thousands in cash and stolen
credit cards during all-night
binges fueled by drinking and
drugs.
Over the past three years, police
in the largely Vietnamese area said
theyve found more than a dozen
of these homes run by gangs. In
some cases, police were tipped off
by neighbors tired of the noise
and traffic; in others, they were led
there after a fight landed one of the
gamblers in the hospital.
Inside the homes, players try
their hand at video poker or black-

jack. But one of the biggest draws


is a six-seater table featuring a
video game that gamblers play for
money. The game earned the
homes the name slaphouses as
the sound of players pounding
their hands on the game controls
can be heard outside.
They dont just go there for an
hour, theyll be there for hours on
end, said Westminster police Sgt.
Darin Upstill, adding that the
objective of the game is to shoot
out fire and kill a dragon. Now,
who is financing it is another
story. Thats what were trying to
figure out.
Gambling has long been popular in the Vietnamese community
that settled in Orange County after
the fall of Saigon in 1975 and has
since grown to 200,000.
For years, authorities said,
Vietnamese coffeehouses featured
machines rigged for poker, blackjack and other games where owners could flip a switch and turn the
screens back to run-of-the-mill
video games when police walked
in the door.
Authorities said the coffeehouses were drawing drug dealing, fraud
and gang activity along with the
gamblers. In 2011, police in the
Orange County city of Garden

Grove raided more than a dozen


coffeehouses,
seizing
186
machines and $150,000 in cash.
Weeks later, the city passed a
law banning arcade games from
coffee houses. Since then, Garden
Grove police have detected at least
15 illegal gambling houses in residential areas, said police Lt. Tom
DaRi.
Moving gambling into residential neighborhoods makes it
tougher for police to detect, since
they need a warrant to get in.
Neighbors are often afraid to
report the homes to police even
when they draw drug use and other
crime.

Shootings
Bac Duong, an Orange County
inmate who escaped from jail earlier this year and led California
authorities on a weeklong manhunt, was charged with shooting a
man outside one such house in
nearby Santa Ana, authorities
said.
Its a hub for organized crime,
DaRi said. Off a slaphouse,
youre
probably
making
$100,000 a month easy.
Gambling is lucrative for gangs
because the profits are high and
the risk is low compared with drug

dealing and fraud, which carry


higher penalties.
Police in largely suburban
Orange County are trying to dig
deeper into the slaphouses, which
are usually set up in rental homes.
At least one person lives in the
house and provides security. Cash
is regularly moved out to reduce

Underground gambling has

the
Vietnamese. But gambling is popular in Little Saigon, where large
billboards beckon players to
legitimate casinos in Southern
California.
Dr. Timothy Fong, co-director
of the Gambling Studies Program
at University of California, Los

many immigrant communities,
especially among Asians where
risk-taking is encouraged and betting seen as a way of testing fate.
It is very steeped in tradition,
Fong said. You are supposed to
take huge risks and you are supposed to go big.

LOS ANGELES An overflow crowd

Before going inside, Beck chatted
with the crowd outside, but it was
unclear whether he would speak during

the meeting. Beck shook hands with


The Game and the two hugged.
Beck said the meeting was a step in
the right direction toward peace, especially considering the police shootings Sunday morning in Baton Rouge,
Louisiana.
Beck said LAPD would double air for
officers on the ground who respond to
calls.
Were making sure that theres no
one-person cars responding to emergency calls, Beck said, adding that
beginning Monday, all officers would
be in uniform.

Gambling aside, Dan Nguyen,

customers often played arcade

Black cops living in two worlds


By Lisa Marie Pane
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DALLAS In the aftermath of


the deadly attack on Dallas officers, the citys police chief issued
an appeal to blacks: If you want to
change law enforcement, join us.
Apply to become a cop.
Chelsea Whitaker heeded that
call nearly a decade ago, long
before the fatal police shootings
in Ferguson, Missouri, and North
Charleston, South Carolina, and
elsewhere that energized the Black
Lives Matter movement.
Now she finds herself living in
two worlds.
Whitaker is a police officer
whos been cursed at and attacked
while making an arrest. Shes also
a black woman who has faced the
indignity of being asked if she
belongs where she is, even while
using the citys gas pumps to fill
up her department-issued vehicle.

In this era of
d i s t r u s t
between blacks
and
police,
Wh i t ak er
believes
she
has an opportunity to help
bridge
the
divide.
Chelsea
Were

Whitaker
dominated by
fears and our prejudices. Weve got
to do better, she said. We cant
just jump to What this white person did is racist or What this
black person did is criminal.
In the days after the sniper slayings, Police Chief David Brown
urged blacks to leave the protests
and join the department to work
for change from within.
Like most U.S. cities, the Dallas
department has struggled to diversify its ranks. While the city is
composed mostly of blacks and

Hispanics, the police force is still


dominated by whites, which make
up about half of the department.
The rest of the force is 26 percent black and 20 percent
Hispanic. The city is about 28 percent white, 25 percent black and
42 percent Hispanic.
The police chief, a black man
who rose through the ranks during
a three-decade career, challenged
protesters to be part of the solution.
Serve your community. Dont
be a part of the problem, he said.
Were hiring. Get off of that
protest line and put your application in.
Whitaker, who turns 34 next
week, is well known in Texas. A
former point guard on the Baylor
University squad that won the
2005 NCAA championship, she
later played professionally in
Israel and Turkey before returning to Texas and joining the

department.
Shes now a detective in the
criminal intelligence unit and
attends law school. She comes
from a family of public servants:
Her brother and father work for the
fire department. Her mother is a
retired probation officer.
Since becoming an officer in
2007, shes seen both ends of the
spectrum. Many blacks who distrust officers based on years of
harassment and excessive force
are quick to view every police
interaction as racist. Many white
officers are fearful that crime or
danger is just one stop away.
Shes found herself in the middle, trying to explain to black
people that she and fellow officers
arent all out to get them and
insisting to white colleagues that
many blacks, including herself,
are stopped for no apparent reason
and challenged about their activities.

When
she
first
started
patrolling, she was infuriated by
people hurting each other, committing crimes or cursing her out
when she was arresting them. She
was trying to help, trying to take
bad guys off the streets, and she
was getting grief for doing her
job.
I let it consume me. I hated it,
she said.
But she started to think more
about the circumstances that lead
someone into a life of crime. She
began to focus on the things she
could do to be a mentor: talking
regularly to a guy she had arrested
and is now in jail, buying a meal
for a girl who had been molested,
bringing a teenager to Wal-Mart
to get her personal hygiene products and teach her how to care for
herself.
Her chief lamented the myriad of

Harlem could soon have first Dominican-American in Congress


By Deepti Hajela
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK In an election year filled


with debate over immigration, Adriano
Espaillat hopes his personal story makes
its own statement. After living at one point
in the country without documentation, he
could become the first Dominican-American
in Congress.
After winning the Democratic primary in
a strongly Democratic district that includes
Harlem and parts of the Bronx, Espaillat is
heavily favored in Novembers general
election to succeed the long-serving Rep.
Charles Rangel, who is retiring.

It would break new


ground for the historically black district, which
includes Harlem and has
been represented by only
two African-Americans,
Rangel
and
Adam
Clayton Powell Jr.
before him, for more
than 70 years even as
Adriano
Hispanics have been the
Espaillat
majority in the district
for at least the past several years.
As an immigrant, Espaillat sees his rise
as a strong message against the intolerance thats being spewed by the Trumps of

the world. He was especially looking forward to seeing how his story could resonate
in Congress, especially among those
opposed to immigration reform.
How will they feel knowing that I have
the same vote as they have on the floor of
Congress? he said. I would love to see
what the reaction is.
Espaillat, a 61-year-old state senator
whose resume also includes the state
Assembly and years spent in community
work, has come a long way from his introduction to the U.S. as a 9-year-old on vacation in 1964.
That trip started out as a visit to grandparents, who were already in New York City,
but continued past the expiration of his
familys visa. His grandparents petitioned
for the family to gain U.S. residency, but
they lived in the country without legal
authorization for several months in
Manhattans Washington Heights neighborhood while waiting for paperwork.
His grandmother worried about immigration officials deporting them and often

warned the young Espaillat and his brother


to be careful when they went out. In the
neighborhood, he said, there was a level of
fear ... that Immigration would come in, at
any time.
Espaillat said that perspective gives me
an advantage, a clear advantage, because I
see life through a different optic.
Having any kind of immigrant worldview
would definitely put him in the very small
minority in Congress. According to the Pew
Research Center, only six members of the
current 114th Congress immigrated to the
U.S., and out of more than 12,000 who have
served in Congress in the countrys history,
only 407 were foreign-born.
It was unclear whether any of those foreign-born members had also ever been in
the country without legal authorization.

Representatives doesnt collect information on ancestry or status unless a representative self-identifies it and couldnt deter-

Trump ready to complete improbable rise


By Steve Peoples
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CLEVELAND A year ago, few


imagined Donald Trump as a headline speaker at the Republican
National Convention let alone
as its star.
Back then, maybe the billionaire New Yorker was alone in
thinking he would arrive in
Cleveland this week as the GOPs
presumptive nominee for president. There are still some
Republicans trying to stop him,
but the partys four-day coronation of its unlikely White House
hopeful will complete his rise
from real estate mogul to potential
leader of the free world.
It was quite a journey,
Republican National Committee
Chairman Reince Priebus said.
Not just what he was able to do in
getting more votes than any
Republican in the history of our

party, but do it
with 16 people
running. It is a
remarkable
thing.
Indeed, the
man
who
opened his campaign as a late
TV
Donald Trump night
punchline will
face the nation as the Republican
Party standard-bearer, delivering
what could be the most watched
convention speech of all time.
Trump will do so in a time of
tumult at home and abroad.
Authorities said three police
officers were shot and killed
Sunday
in
Baton
Rouge,
Louisiana, where the slaying of a
black man by white police officers
this month led to protests nationwide and heightened concerns
about the state of race relations in
America.

Trump quickly blamed a lack of


leadership for that shooting, taking to his Twitter and Facebook
pages to say he was grieving for
the offers killed.
We demand law and order,
Trump wrote.
In the days before, Trumps
choice of Indiana Gov. Mike
Pence as his running mate was
overshadowed by a terror attack in
France and attempted coup in
Turkey.
Protests are widely expected outside the Quicken Loans Arena in
Cleveland, where the citys police
chief, Calvin Williams, said
Sunday that it seems everyone is
coming to town to exercise their
First Amendment rights.
The circumstances only add to
the attention placed on Trump and
his politically incorrect and
unscripted campaign, which has
successfully tapped into a wave of
populist anger that few others saw

Obama urges Americans to tamp


down on inflammatory rhetoric
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Confronting another


killing of police officers, President Barack
Obama on Sunday urged Americans to tamp
down inflammatory words and actions as a
violent summer collides with the nations
heated presidential campaign.
Obama said the motive behind Sundays
killing of three officers in Baton Rouge,
Louisiana, was still unknown. It was the latest in a string of deadly incidents involving
law enforcement, including the police
shooting of a black man in Baton Rouge
and the killing of five officers in Dallas.
We as a nation have to be loud and clear
that nothing justifies attacks on law
enforcement, Obama said.
The president spoke on the eve of the
Republican Partys national convention,
where Donald Trump will officially accept
the GOP nomination. The businessman has
cast the recent incidents as a sign that the
country needs new leadership, often using
heated rhetoric to make his point.
Every one right now focus on words and
actions that can unite this country rather
than divide it further, Obama said.

The president spoke earlier Sunday with


Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards and Baton
Rouge Mayor Kip Holden to hear the latest
on the investigation into the shootings and
pledge federal support.
Obama has spent most of the last week
focused on defusing tensions and rebuilding
trust between police departments and the
communities they serve.
On July 7, an Army veteran opened fire on
law enforcement in Dallas, killing five and
wounding seven other officers. The shooter,
who was black, said he wanted to kill white
people, especially white officers. Obama
spoke at the memorial service for the officers killed and told Americans not to
despair, that the nation is not as divided as
it might seem.
The next day, Obama held an extraordinary four-hour meeting at the White Houses
executive offices with police officers, community activists and elected leaders, emerging from the session saying were not even
close to the point where minority communities could feel confident that police
departments were serving them with respect
and equality or where police departments
could feel adequately supported at all levels.

as the race for president began


more than a year ago.
Trump has thrilled supporters
with a willingness to hurl insults
at Democrats and Republican
alike, tearing them down them
with pet nicknames: Little
Marco and Crooked Hillary
among them. Yet his lack of discipline and disorganized campaign
has turned off many Republican
leaders. His blunt tone and aggressive approach to immigration and
terrorism has done the same with
key segments of general election
voters: women, blacks and
Hispanics, especially.
According to any number of
preference polls, Trump heads into
the convention as one of the most
unpopular major party nominees
ever.
All of it makes the convention
starting Monday must-see TV.
He doesnt have natural filters, New York GOP Chairman Ed

Cox said. Lets see about the


acceptance speech. Thats probably going to be the most watched
acceptance speech ever, because
its going to be dramatic. People
dont know exactly what its
going to be.
An estimated 30 million people
watched 2012 nominee Mitt
Romney address the convention
four years ago. After setting ratings records throughout the
Republican primary season,
Trump could very well shatter that
number.
But what those tuning in will
see between the chairmans opening gavel Monday afternoon and
when roughly 125,000 balloons
fall from the rafters at Quicken
Loans Arena at the end of Trumps
speech Thursday night remains, to
a large degree, a mystery.

6,000 detained after failed coup attempt


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ISTANBUL Following a failed


coup against Turkish President
Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the government moved swiftly Sunday to
shore up his power and remove
those perceived as an enemy, saying it has detained 6,000 people.
The crackdown targeted not only
generals and soldiers, but a wide
swath of the judiciary that has
sometimes blocked Erdogan, raising concerns that the effort to oust
him will push Turkey even further
into authoritarian rule.
Friday nights sudden uprising
by a faction of the military
appeared to take the government
and much of the world by surprise.
The plotters sent warplanes firing on key government installations and tanks rolling into major
cities, but it ended hours later
when loyal government forces

Recep Tayyip
Erdogan

regained control of the military, and civilians took to the


streets in support
of
Erdogan.
At
least 294 people were killed
and more than
1,400 wounded,
the government

said.
On Sunday, Prime Minister
Binali Yildirim said the coup had
failed and life has returned to normal.
Another calamity has been
thwarted, Yildirim said in Ankara
after visiting state TRT television, which had been seized by
soldiers supporting the coup.
However, our duty is not over. We
shall rapidly conduct the cleansing operation so that they cannot
again show the audacity of coming

against the will of the people.


Yildirim said those involved
with the failed coup will receive
every punishment they deserve.
Erdogan suggested that Turkey
might reinstate capital punishment, which was legally abolished in 2004 as part of the countrys bid to join the European
Union.
Even before the weekend chaos
in Turkey, the NATO member and
key Western ally in the fight
against the Islamic State group
had been wracked by political turmoil that critics blamed on
Erdogans increasingly heavyhanded rule. He has shaken up the
government, cracked down on dissent, restricted the media and
renewed fighting with Kurdish
rebels.
Speaking to a large crowd of
supporters in front of his Istanbul
residence
Sunday
evening,
Erdogan responded to frequent

calls of We want the death penalty! by saying: We hear your


request. In a democracy, whatever
the people want they will get.
Grief-stricken relatives in
Ankara and Istanbul buried those
killed in the coup attempt, and
prayers for the dead were read
simultaneously at noon Sunday at
Turkeys
85, 000
mosques.
Erdogan attended a funeral for his
campaign manager Erol Olcak and
his 16-year-old son, Abdullah
Tayyip Olcak. The president wept
and vowed to take the country forward in unity and solidarity.
The governments announcement that 6,000 people had been
detained including three top
generals and hundreds of soldiers
suggested a wide conspiracy.
Observers said the scale of the
crackdown, especially against
the judiciary, indicated the government was taking the opportunity to further consolidate

Our Community

Erdogans power.
The factions within the military opposed to Erdogan who did
this just gave him carte blanche to
crack down not only on the military but on the judiciary, said
Aykan Erdemir, a former lawmaker
from the main opposition party
and now a senior fellow at the
U. S. -based
Foundation
for
Defense of Democracies. The
coup plotters couldnt have helped
Erdogan more.
The rapid suppression of the
putsch was greeted by Turks across
the political spectrum with opposition parties joining to condemn
it. In a half-dozen cities, tens of
thousands marched throughout the
day after officials urged them to
defend democracy and back
Erdogan, Turkeys top politician
for 13 years.
At
nightfall,
flag-waving
crowds rallied in Istanbuls Taksim
Square.

NICE, France French authorities detained two more


people Sunday and released the estranged wife of the slain
Nice truck attacker from custody as they tried to determine
whether he had been an Islamic extremist or just a very
angry man.
The Bastille Day carnage wrought by Mohamed Lahouaiej
Bouhlel on the seafront of this southern Mediterranean city
claimed the lives of at least 84 people and wounded 202,
including many tourists from other countries.
About 85 people remained hospitalized Sunday, and of
those, 18 including a child were still in life-threatening
condition, Health Minister Marisol Touraine told reporters
on a visit to the city.
The Paris prosecutors office said only 35 bodies have
been definitively identified so far, carried out by specialists
with a judicial official present. That left 49 bodies still
without identification. Touraine also said one of the hospitalized wounded still has not been identified.
A man and a woman were detained Sunday morning in
Nice, according to an official with the Paris prosecutors
office, which oversees national terrorism investigations.
Shortly afterward, Bouhlels estranged wife, who was
arrested Friday, was released from custody, according to an
official in the Paris prosecutors office. She is the mother of
Bouhlels three children and was in the process of divorcing
him.

Tainted liquor kills


at least 19, blinds 6
in northern India
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LUCKNOW, India At least 19 people died and six others were blinded after drinking toxic bootleg liquor in
northern India, police said Sunday.
Another 50 people fell ill after consuming the homebrewed liquor on Friday and were being treated in hospitals
in Etah district in Uttar Pradesh state, said senior police
officer Ajay Shankar Rai. The Press Trust of India news
agency put the death toll at 21.
Illicit liquor is a hugely profitable industry across India,
where bootleggers pay no taxes and sell enormous quantities of their product. The manufacturers operate from
homes, hidden warehouses and even forests.
Rai said the victims bought the liquor from a village shop
on Friday evening and started falling ill and dying. The
shop owner, who has been arrested, was selling pouches of
tainted liquor for 15 rupees (4 cents) each, six times cheaper than the legal drink, he said.
Most of the victims were poor farmers and laborers looking for a cheap means of intoxication.

OPINION

THE DAILY JOURNAL

Civilian deaths from drone strikes


Other voices

The Orange County Register

n a show of shocking imprecision, the White House recently


released statistics on the number
of civilians killed by U.S. drone
strikes in Pakistan, Yemen and Africa
during President Obamas seven years
in ofce.
The imprecision is evident in two
ways, and it encourages practical and
philosophical questions about the
drone attacks that play a large role in
Americas war on terrorism.
First, there are the statistics themselves. Theyre an insult to the word
estimate. According to the administrations rst-ever report of this kind,
as few as 64 and as many as 116 noncombatants have been killed, along
with between 2,372 and 2,581 enemy
combatants, in 473 unmanned aircraft
strikes aimed at suspected terrorists
and their leaders.
Thats quite a range: 64 to 116.
Americans wouldnt accept such inexactitude in a calorie count; we certainly shouldnt accept it in a casualty
count of apparently innocent people.
And an accurate number of dead
civilians may not fall within that
range, given that independent organizations that keep track of reports of
U.S. drone strikes believe the real toll

is as high as about 800. The website


Long War Journal counts 207 civilian
deaths in Pakistan and Yemen, the
think tank New America counts 216
in those countries, and the news
organization Bureau of Investigative
Journalism says the range is 380 to
801.
Second, theres what the statistics
say about those drone strikes.
Part of the supposed point of using
armed drones is that compared to
bombs from manned aircraft, theyre
more accurate at hitting small targets.
Collateral damage is supposed to be
minimized. Civilian deaths should be
few the strikes more humane.
But these numbers, especially the
larger private estimates, suggest that
advantage is overstated.
The implications are fodder for critics of President Obamas stepped-up
use of drones. Maybe thats why the
administration rolled out the numbers
on the Friday before the Fourth of
July.
Note that the numbers dont include
civilian deaths from drone strikes in
Afghanistan, Iraq or Syria. They
cover only places where the U.S. is
not engaged in active hostilities.
To his credit, the president issued an

executive order on the day of the data


release making protection of civilians a priority for military planning.
But good intentions wont satisfy
those who say drone strikes, controlled by personnel at video screens
thousands of miles away, sanitize the
tragedy of civilian casualties.
While Americans debating how to
ght terrorism may disagree on how
many dead foreign civilians is too
many, we shouldnt ignore the question of drone-strikes big-picture
effectiveness. Do they debilitate the
enemy and discourage would-be terrorists? Or does anger at the killing of
civilians drive more young men and
women toward terrorist recruiters?
Isnt the killing of civilians what
were ghting against?
Last month, this editorial board
called on Congress to give the president authority to use military force
against ISIS. At the same time, the
board said U.S. leaders must clearly
delineate our aims as well as limits
that keep military and police action
within the bounds of American values.
They can begin to better dene the
mission by asking hard questions
about the vague, barely believable
data released on July 1 and the drone
strategy itself.

Letters to the editor


Minimum wage
Editor,
I support the minimum wage being
considered by the San Mateo City
Council and I support unions (San
Mateo considers phasing in wage
hike in the July 16 edition of the
Daily Journal). Shouldnt the minimum apply to everyone even
employees covered by collective bargaining? Perhaps someone could
explain.
Kudos to the City Council for helping to close the enormous local wage
gap.

This deal has made both the region


and the world more stable and safe.
However, this week some members of
Congress have tried to undermine the
deal with new legislation and the
same old tired arguments. This legislation is not only short-sighted, it is
dangerous. It would remove the safeguards blocking Iran from a potential
nuclear bomb and put our country
back on the path to war.
The Iran deal is a victory for
America. It not only makes us, and
the world, safer, it helps avoid a costly and devastating war with Iran. We
must not abandon the deal in favor of
a failed policy of sabre rattling and
war.

The Iran nuclear deal is working


Editor,
One year ago, Iran and the United
States announced that they had
accomplished a historic diplomatic
victory. The Joint Comprehensive
Plan of Action, more commonly
known as the Iran deal, denitively
blocked every potential Iranian pathway to a bomb, put inspectors on the
ground with unprecedented access and
averted a war between the United
States and Iran.

Koch brothers and their funding of


groups that stand for a devil take the
hindmost attitude toward the common good. The most dangerous part
is that these groups have in reality a
very long-term goal of totally dominating our political system for their
shortsighted purposes.
I think it is really useful for our
local opinion makers and politicians
to take a leaf from Sues book in not
being afraid to call out the dangerous
effects of unlimited cash upon our
societys political system. Just one
example is the effort by groups such
as Citizens Climate Lobby and their
espousal of a carbon tax levied on
fossil fuel importers and producers to
be paid to the government and then
returned to the taxpayers, rendering it
revenue neutral.
This effort is being stalled by the
various reactionary forces arrayed
against anything that might cause
some short-term pain to the industries that are causing climate change.
The worst part is that all the while
these backward-looking groups pretend to espouse freedom for those
citizens who will indeed be underwater pretty shortly. Bravo Sue!

Remembering
Dallas

know its the rst night of the Republican convention. And maybe its no longer the major news story
but I keep thinking about Ofcer David Chetcuti and
remembering Dallas. When you are a councilmember, you
have a different perspective of the police. You know the
individual members of the force. You know how dedicated
they are to the communities they serve. And while being a
policeman or policewoman in the suburbs is not quite the
challenge as serving in San Francisco, Philadelphia,
Chicago or New York where there is violence every day
and so many diverse populations to protect, often
from each other, still the
men and women who do
this job need our respect
and love, especially at this
time.
Its not often a local
police ofcer gets shot in
the line of duty, but
Millbrae police Ofcer
David Chetcuti did. He wasnt the rst one to re and
he was killed. He had come
to the aid of a San Bruno
policeman who made a trafc stop and noticed the
occupant had a high-powered rie. Chetcuti rode up on his motorcycle, asked the
driver to put down his weapon. Instead, the motorist
picked it up and killed Chetcuti.
When I read about the tragic events of Dallas and about
the two New York policemen who were shot as they sat in
their car I think of Ofcer Chetcuti.
***
Twenty to 30 marchers in the Dallas protest openly carried military style ries. In Texas, an open carry state, its
not only legal but typical. But the presence of armed protesters openly carrying ries made it more difcult for the
police to distinguish between suspects and marchers.
Ohio, host to tonights convention, is also an open carry
state.
***
Most of the discussion has been about race, how the
black community distrusts the police and in turn how the
police fear a black man with a gun. Not enough has been
said of the easy access to dangerous weapons which
threatens the life of every police ofcer whether they
work in a big city or a small town.
Whether the owner of the gun is white or black or
brown. Or how the easy access to guns turn some neighborhoods in Oakland, Chicago, Los Angeles,
Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia into war zones. It is
the people who live in these neighborhoods, mostly
black or Hispanic, who depend on the police to protect
them from gang gun ghts where innocent children are
caught in the cross re.
And it is in these same neighborhoods where the police
are viewed by too few as the protector and by too many as
the enemy. Its difcult to erase years of prejudice and
unjust treatment, where too many still feel threatened by a
man in blue.
But if we could dream a bit, how different it would be if
only the police were allowed to carry guns?
***
If it was only legal in civilian life for the police to own
and, if necessary, use rearms, there would have been no
Dallas where ve ofcers were ambushed by one man with
an assault rie; and no Dallas where President Kennedy
was assassinated; no Ferguson, no Falcon Heights; no
Baton Rouge. No mass shootings like Orlando, Florida;
Blackberry, Virginia; Newton, Connecticut; Chattanooga,
Tennessee; Killeen, Texas; San Ysidro and San
Bernardino, California and Aurora, Colorado. Trayvon
Martin and David Chetcuti would probably still be alive
today.
Black Lives Matter would be about jobs, good schools,
getting rid of drugs and gangs and not about hating cops.
Its not that good people havent tried to restrict the
sale of these weapons to those who shouldnt have them.
But they are up against a manufacturing lobby, the NRA,
which hides behind the Second Amendment and hunters to
increase gun sales no matter what the cost in lives. The
NRA does not care who has or buys a gun. Their mission
is to represent the companies which make guns and to
ght any restriction, however small, on their use and sale.
Its in a way like Kelloggs. The company doesnt care
who buys their Corn Flakes. There could be sinister people out to kill smacking their lips over Rice Krispies
every morning.
Who cares as long as sales are up. The difference is that
cereals dont kill people. Guns do.

To some, Donald Trump is


desperate bid for survival
By Claire Galofaro
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOGAN, W.Va. Mike Kirk


leans across the counter of the
pawnshop where he works for $11
an hour. Its less than half what he
made in the mines, but the best he
can do these days.
Many of the storefronts on the
narrow downtown streets are
empty. Some of the buildings
burned. Their blackened shells,
condemned signs taped to the
doors, stand as a symbol of how
far theyve fallen.
In 10 years? A ghost town, one
customer offers. Another wonders
if it might simply cease to exist.
There are places like this across
America poor and getting poorer, feeling left behind while the
rest got richer. But nowhere has
the plummet of the white working
class been as merciless as here in
central Appalachia. And nowhere
have the cross-currents of desperation and boiling resentment that
have devoured a presidential race
been on such glaring display.
It used to be that young people
could finish high school and get a
job in the mines that paid enough
to feed their families. Now the
mines are idle.

Families are fleeing.


The population of Logan
County is 35,000, half what it was
50 years ago. More than 96 percent of residents are white; one in
five lives in poverty. Few have
college degrees. Drug abuse is
rampant. The life expectancy for
men is 68 years, eight years shorter than the average American man.
Look around, this town went to
hell, said Kirk, who lost his $28an-hour job on a strip mine and
his three-bedroom house with a
two-car garage.
The unemployment rate is 11
percent, compared to less than 5
percent nationwide. West Virginia
is the only state where less than
half of working-aged people
work.

Despair
Anxiety turned to despair, said
James Branscome, a retired managing director of Standard &
Poors. And desperate people,
throughout history, have turned to
tough-talking populists.
And that is how, in one of
Americas forgotten corners, the
road was perfectly paved for the
ascent of Donald Trump. He won
by spectacular margins across the
coalfields.

He offers us hope, Kirk said,


and hopes the one thing we have
left.
Daniel Cox, the research director for the non-profit Public
Religion Research Institute, said
an uneven recovery from the recession lined up with societal shifts
the election of the first nonwhite president and a rising
minority population. It left many
in struggling, blue-collar communities feeling deserted for the sake
of progress someplace else.
When confidence falls, its all
too complicated to understand an
elaborate plan or an articulated
policy, Atwater said. We dont
want to wait for the details; we
dont want to read the footnotes.
Just give me a powerful headline.
Trump promised to build the
wall. Create jobs. Destroy ISIS.
He blamed immigrants and China
and Muslims for Americas woes.
His critics warn that his redblooded, racially tinged rants
threaten to unravel the fabric of
the nation. Here, the same words
translate as truth-telling.
A think tank called the
Economic Innovation Group created the Distressed Communities
Index , which combines several
factors for every county poverty rate, the percentage of people

without a college degree, the number of abandoned homes.


The most distressed patches
stretch through Appalachia and
across the South. Trump won in
rich places and poor places and
places in between. But an analysis
shows that Trumps strongest support increased along with the level
of economic hardship.
In Buchanan County, Virginia, a
quarter of people live in poverty
and one in five live on disability.
In March, 70 percent of primary
voters supported Trump.

Ego
Maybe part of it is his ego,
said Gerald Arrington, Buchanan
Countys prosecutor, a 37-yearold Democrat. He voted for Trump.
His ego is going to make him
want to be the greatest president
ever.
Albert Adams and a friend quit
their jobs after decades in the
mines and opened up Big Als Auto
and Small Engine Repair in Logan
to try to build a life after coal.
They hung a Make America
Great Again sign over the coffee
maker.
Adams doesnt like everything
Trump has to say. He imagines
immigrants are a lot like West

Virginians: doomed by the place


of their birth to be down on their
luck, looking for a better life.
His conundrum is echoed all
over these mountains. People like
Trumps rat-a-tat-tat of promises
and insults so unscripted they figure he couldnt have given it
enough forethought to be pandering. Yet theyre occasionally disturbed by the contents.
Adams business partner, Leslie
Arthur, isnt sure Trump should be
trusted with the nuclear codes.
Mike Honaker, who runs the funeral home, doesnt appreciate how
he talks about women.
But theyre willing to forgive
because they believe the political
machine left them with no other
option.
Coal is all but gone, Adams
knows. There are no factories, no
infrastructure to build any and no
companies that want to relocate
here.
They knew opening this shop
was a gamble. Maybe theyll stay
afloat, maybe they wont. Maybe
Trump can fix it. Maybe it cant be
fixed.
Sometimes Adams thinks of
packing it all up and moving himself. He figures hed head west,
where the coal seams still run
thick.

Tesla working on Autopilot radar changes after crash


By Tom Krisher
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT Tesla Motors is


working on modifications to its
Autopilot system after it failed to
stop for a tractor-trailer rig in a
Florida crash that killed the driver
of a Model S sedan.
CEO Elon Musk, in a Twitter
post Thursday night, said Tesla is
working on improvements to the
radar system. Autopilot uses cameras, radar and computers to detect
objects and automatically brake if

a Tesla vehicle is about to hit


something.
But in the May 7 crash that
killed Joshua D. Brown, 40, of
Canton, Ohio, cameras in his
Tesla Model S failed to distinguish
the white side of a turning tractortrailer from a brightly lit sky, and
the car didnt automatically brake,
the company has said. Signals
from radar sensors also didnt stop
the car, and Brown didnt take control either.
Tesla wouldnt comment Friday
on Musks tweets or possible

changes to Autopilot, which is


being scrutinized by two U. S.
government agencies. Whatever
changes are made have broad
implications for Tesla and other
automakers, who either have similar technology in place or are
about ready to put it on the road as
they
move
toward
fully
autonomous driving within the
next decade.
Just after the crash was made
public June 30, Musk gave an
indication in a tweet that the radar
was discounted in the Florida

crash. His tweet, which since has


been removed from Twitter, said
that radar tunes out objects like
an overhead road sign to avoid
stopping the car for no reason.
Experts say this means that the
radar likely overlooked the tractor-trailer in the Florida crash.
Thursday, Musk tweeted that the
company is working on changes
that would decouple the
Autopilots radar from its cameras
and allow the radar to spot objects
with fewer data points. Car sensors produce so much data that

Warriors great Nate Thurmond dies at 74


By Paul Elias
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Nate Thurmond
1941-2016

SAN FRANCISCO Nate Thurmond, the


tenacious defensive center who played with
Wilt Chamberlain and was an iconic figure
in two cities, died Saturday after a short battle with leukemia. He was 74.
The Golden State Warriors announced the
death of one of the teams most respected
players less than a month after they lost the
NBA Finals to the Cleveland Cavaliers in
seven games. Both franchises previously

retired the Akron, Ohio, natives No. 42.


Thurmond played 11 of his 14 seasons
with the Warriors and retired after the 19761977 season, one year after leading the
Miracle Cavaliers to an improbable trip
to the Eastern Conference finals.
Without a doubt, he is one of the most
beloved figures to ever wear a Warriors uniform, Golden State owner Joe Lacob said.
Current Cavalier and Akron native LeBron
James said on Twitter: Knowing u played
in the same rec league as me growing up
gave me hope of making it out! Thanks!

The 6-foot-11 Thurmond was voted as one


of the best 50 players in NBA history and is
considered among the most dominating
centers in the game. He was elected to the
Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of
Fame in 1985.
Nate Thurmond was a giant of his era and
one of the greatest players in the history of
our game, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver
said in a statement.

Pacifica is sitting pretty after traversing


the first two Section 3 wins without having
to use either of its ace pitchers, Dylan Uter
or Evann Smith. Pacifica manager Nate Uter
turned to Benny Hatch in Saturdays opener;
the big right-hander soldiered through 2 2/3
innings of work before departing for reliever Marcel Elicagaray, who worked one-third
of an inning to earn the win.
Elicagaray bounced back Sunday to make
his first All-Star start of the summer, earning

One day removed from Belmont-Redwood


Shores 16-run outburst in the Section 3 AllStar Major Little League opener, the Bels ran
into a buzz saw.
The District 52-champion Bels fell to the
losers bracket Sunday at Palo Altos
Middlefield Park, suffering a 12-0 shutout at
the hands of the District 57 San Ramon squad.
The Bels managed just five hits, all singles,
but kept it close until the third. Then, trailing
1-0, three different Bels pitchers yielded a
nine-run inning to San Ramon. The game was
called after four innings via mercy rule.
We ran into a little bit of a buzz saw of a
team and we didnt play up to our capabilities, Belmont-Redwood Shores manager
Chris Freiere said.
The sobering loss came a day after the Bels
big 16-4 win over District 45-champion
Castro Valley. Billed as a battle of former teammates, the Bels faced former Belmont native
Sam Neal, who played with the Bels current
Major squad last season at the 10-11s level.
Bels right-hander Tai Takahashi got the better of his former teammate though, firing
three innings to earn the win. Never trailing
in the game, the Bels erupted for four home
runs throughout, three of which were three-run
blasts and the other a grand slam off the bat of
catcher Joey Thompson.
We have power, Freiere said. Probably
all 13 of them can hit the ball out of the park.
So we can surprise guys.
It was Castro Valley that first flexed its muscles with the long ball. After the Bels jumped
out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the first, Castro
Valley drew closer on a two-run home run by
Cam Calvillo. But the Bells would get it back
and then some in the top of the second when
Jack Vanoncini drilled a three-run bomb to
right, extending the lead to 6-2.
Neal didnt pitch poorly. The big left-hander actually totaled seven strikeouts through
the first two innings and finished with eight

It took Pacifica American a couple innings


to get the bats going in the Section 3 9-10

the Padres this season coming into Sunday.
Cueto allowed home runs to Kansas Citys
Eric Hosmer and Salvador Perez in the second inning of the All-Star Game, which the

On Sunday, Cueto allowed a solo homer

Stenson outduels Mickelson to


claim crown at British Open
By Doug Ferguson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TROON, Scotland Henrik


Stenson is the champion golfer of
the year, thanks to a final round for
the ages.
He kept hitting the best shots of
his life, one after another, and he
needed each one to stay ahead of
Phil Mickelson in a British Open
duel that ranked among the best in
major championship history.
Stenson made 10 birdies, including a 50-foot putt across the 15th
green that had him pumping his
fist in a rare show of emotion
Sunday.
The final stroke in this masterpiece was a 20-foot birdie putt on
the 18th hole that curled into the
cup on the final turn. It gave him an
8-under 63, tying Johnny Miller at
Oakmont for the greatest closing
round by a major champion, and
Stenson didnt even realize it until
he sat down to sign his card.
Records didnt matter. This was
about winning his first major.

DeGrom (6-4) allowed only a

Zach Eflin and retired 27 of 29 batters. The lanky right-hander struck
out seven, walked one and went
the distance for the first time in 68
career starts.
Eflin (2-3) allowed five hits and
three runs in six innings.
DeGrom dominated the Phillies
and continued his mastery in day

some
point
when Ill struggle to make it

when I get back
Henrik Stenson to the house,
Stenson said
after four hours of an epic battle
between two 40-somethings at
Royal Troon.
Mickelson was a runner-up for
the 11th time in a major, but never
like this. He cant look back at a
mistake because he really didnt
make any. He opened with a 63,
closed with a career-best 65, shot
the second-best score in Open history and was 11 shots better than
everyone in the field.
Except one.
He got beat by arguably the best
final round in 156 years of major
championships.
Miller also made 10 birdies in
his final round of the 1973 U.S.

Open, and then waited to see if anyone could catch him. Stenson started the final round with a one-shot
lead over Mickelson, and knew it
would be a two-man race from the
opening hole when Mickelson
nearly holed out from the fairway.
He answered great shot with one
of his own, finally pulling away
with birdies on the 14th and 15th
holes, and then a third in a row after
Mickelson drilled a 3-wood onto
the green at the par-5 16th and
came within a fraction of an inch of
making an eagle.
The last birdie was for the record
book.
Stenson finished at 264, breaking by one shot the 72-hole scoring record in the majors that David
Toms set in the 2001 PGA
Championship at Atlanta Athletic
Club. His 20-under par matched
Jason Days record for lowest under

Donaldsons double dooms As Bels 10-11s

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND Rich Hill didnt last very long


in what was supposed to be a key start for the
Athletics pitcher.
With about a dozen major league scouts in
attendance to check out the Oakland lefty a
potential trade candidate Hill threw just five
pitches before a blister on the middle finger of
his left hand popped and forced him out of the
game.
Things didnt get much better after that for
manager Bob Melvins ballclub.
Former As third baseman Josh Donaldson
hit a tiebreaking two-run double with two outs
in the ninth and the Toronto Blue Jays held on
to beat Oakland 5-3 on Sunday to avoid a series
sweep.
Its just disappointing, thats the biggest
thing, said Hill, who had been scratched from
a scheduled start on Friday because of the blister issue. It opened up pretty good. It was
bleeding. Its pretty raw right now.
Hill wasnt the only As pitcher hurting.
His replacement, Andrew Triggs, was hit in
the leg by a line drive from Donaldson
moments after Hill was taken out. Triggs finished the inning, giving up an unearned run
when left fielder Khris Davis misplayed Edwin
Encarnacions single for an error, before
Melvin brought in Manaea.
Oakland used seven pitchers overall.
After losing two pitchers in the first inning

tournament, Smith and Dylan Uter have been powering
Pacifica at the plate. Each added two hits Sunday, and are
each batting .625 (5 for 8) in the tourney.
As a team, Pacifica has totaled 25 hits through the two victories.
Its top to bottom, Nate Uter said. All those kids contribute. Every day somebody else is going to have a big day.
Honestly, when we have three of our top five kids hit, its
going to be a good day.
Saturday started with a scare when San Ramon jumped out
to a 4-1 lead, capped by Jake Russells solo home run in the
third. But then the small strike zone of the home plate
umpire reared its head as San Ramons pitchers collapsed in
the bottom of the third as Pacifica rallied for 10 runs.

seen in his All-Star career.


Bels reliever Michael Chu set down the side
in order in the bottom of the fourth to end it,
with help from Vanoncini in center. The former catcher got a great first step on a sinking
line drive off the bat of Castro Valley No. 9
hitter Nate Olson and extended with a dive into
the right-center gap to glove it with a tumble.
With Sundays loss, up next for the Bels is
an elimination game Monday night at 5:30
p.m. at Middlefield Park in a rematch with
Castro Valley. The winner of that game will
advance to the championship round to face
San Ramon Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. Having
advanced through the winners bracket, San
Ramon would need be defeated twice. If necessary, the second game of the championship
round will be played Wednesday at 5:30.
San Ramon has yet to surrender a run in the
tourney, also notching a shutout 10-0 in
Saturdays opener over District 14.
Its tougher obviously, Freiere said of
falling to the losers bracket. That (San
Ramon) team is a really good team. We
thought they were going in and they showed
it. Now we have to beat them twice which is
going to be a tough task for sure.

Pacifica sent 16 batters to the plate in the inning, while


totaling just four hits, including a pair of singles by Smith.
San Ramon pitchers walked seven and hit one batter in the
frame.
I didnt really worry because weve been down before,
Smith said, like in the Hillsborough game (in the District
52 championship round). So, I didnt have any doubt that we
could not come back.
Smith has as good of a hitting foundation as any player in
the tournament, with an easy and natural pull stroke generated by his ability to rotate his hips through his swing. Not
that his consistently loud contact is limited to his pull field
though. Of his three hits Saturday, two of them went to center field.
A three-sport athlete, who also plays soccer and basketball, Smiths favorite is indeed baseball. And he showed just
how refined a hitter he is Saturday by being quite selective
amid the control problems of the opposing pitchers and not
missing good pitches when they were over the plate.
I knew I had to be patient and look for one I could hit
hard, Smith said.
Pacifica pitchers also had problems locating to the tight
strike zone, with three arms combining to walk eight.
Right-hander Ronin Sargent emerged in the closing innings
to find the best rhythm of any pitcher throughout the afternoon. While Sargent still walked two, he set down four
straight at one point, totaling two innings of work.
I just tried to throw it down the middle, Sargent said. I
think the other pitchers were trying to hit the corners.
Sargent also proved a vital leadoff man, settling into the
role after bouncing around the order through much of the
District 52 tournament. On Saturday, he reached base in all
five of his plate appearances. He went on to go 2 for 4
Sunday with singles in each of his first two at-bats.
Sargent said Saturdays big win in the opener was key
because it showed Pacifica means business.
I think its pretty important, Sargent said. I think it
kind of makes a statement because we 10-runned them.

Looking back, he was as ferocious as any player in the history
of the game on the court, but one of
the kindest and nicest souls in his
everyday life, former teammate
and coach Al Attles said.
Thurmond recorded the first official quadruple-double in NBA history as a Chicago Bull when he had
22 points, 14 rebounds, 13 assists
and 12 blocked shots against the
Atlanta Hawks in 1974. He is one
of only four players to grab more

Thurmond starred at Bowling

Thurmond was, without a doubt,
one of the fiercest competitors that
I played against during my entire
career. He played with unbelievable
intensity and was simply a man

The Warriors traded Thurmond to
the Bulls prior to the 1974-75 season. The Bulls dealt him after 13
games the next season to his
hometown Cavaliers, where he
closed out his career in style.
He played a key role in the
Cavaliers most memorable season

After the seven-time All-Star
selection retired, he worked for the
Warriors as a community liaison

Nate brought the same passion
to his longtime community-relations role with the Golden State
Warriors, who benefited from his

Ghostbusters holds its own


By Jake Coyle
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK After months of prerelease debate, Sony Pictures femaleled Ghostbusters reboot arrived in
theaters as neither a massive success
nor the bomb some predicted, as the
much-scrutinized film opened with an
estimated $46 million in North
American theaters, second to the
holdover hit The Secret Life of Pets.
The Secret Life of Pets stayed on
top with $50.6 million in its second
week, according to studio estimates
Sunday.
But all eyes were on Paul Feigs
Ghostbusters, which resurrects the
1984 original with a cast of Melissa
McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones
and Kate McKinnon. Sony, noting it
was the best opening for a live-action
comedy in more than a year, called the
result a triumph. Audiences, which
broke down 46 percent male and 54
percent female, gave it a solid B-plus
CinemaScore.
There was a lot of scrutiny on the
film going up to release, but the movie
in the opening delivered, said Josh
Greenstein, president of marketing and
distribution for Sony. Weve successfully restarted a very important brand
and were just ecstatic at the results.
Yet given its hefty price tag the
film cost $144 million to make, after
rebates, plus more than $100 million
to market its a relatively tepid start
for Ghostbusters that will put pressure on the film to perform well overseas. And that could be a challenge in
some territories that dont have the
same familiarity with the original
Ghostbusters films. It began with

$19.1 million internationally.


A release in China, the worlds second-largest film market, is also in
question. China has regulations
against depictions of the supernatural
in movies. Greenstein said Sony will
submit the film for release and well
see if we get accepted or not.
Among
new
releases,
Ghostbusters had the weekend largely to itself. The true-story crime drama
The Infiltrator, starring Bryan
Cranston, supplied a counterprogramming option from the usual summer
fare, and took in $5.3 million. Woody
Allens 1930s Hollywood drama Cafe
Society opened in limited release
with $355,000 in five theaters.
For Sony,
the stakes
for
Ghostbusters were extremely high.
Greenlit by the since-departed Amy
Pascal, the film is intended to kick off
several future Ghostbusters installments.
Aspirations
for
more
Ghostbusters sequels had long languished largely because of the continued disinterest of original star Bill
Murray. But Feig, who has found critical raves and strong box office for
female-starring
comedies
like
Bridesmaids, The Heat and Spy,
won over the studio and the movies
creators with his idea to reboot around
McCarthy and Wiig.
But the film found plenty of detractors, including even Donald Trump .
Some fans objected to the gender
switch, others complained that the
first trailer was subpar and some even
fretted that any new incarnation of the
comedy classic (one of the biggest
box office hits of the 1980s) would tarnish their fragile memories .

Amazons Jeff Bezos has cameo in new Star Trek film
LOS ANGELES Amazon founder Jeff Bezos got to live
out every Trekkies fantasy by playing an alien in the new
Star Trek movie.
Bezos is listed in the credits for Star Trek Beyond, the
third installment of the rebooted sci-fi franchise. In interviews Friday, producer J.J. Abrams and director Justin Lin
confirmed his appearance in the movie.
Lin said the billionaire CEO arrived with plentiful security for a day of filming and waited patiently for crews to
shoot the single tracking shot that includes his character.
He was awesome, Lin said. It was like a president was
visiting, you know? He had a big entourage! But it didnt
matter because he was so into it. He had to wait around all
day because it was one day we were shooting like three different scenes and, it was also credit to Jeff because ... he just
nailed it every time.

Feigs Ghostbusters had the vocal


support of director Ivan Reitman (a
producer on the reboot) and Murray,
who makes a cameo in the film. Critics
were largely mixed on the movie,
which scored a 73 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Paul Dergarabedian, senior media
analyst for comScore, called the weekend performance a solid and expected
result.
There was all this hoopla and all
this chatter about the movie and now
its opened and it did just fine, said
Dergarabedian. I dont think theres a
referendum on whether or not an allfemale cast in a movie has an impact.
If people like the concept and the cast,
theyre going to go see the movie.

Corey Feldman celebrates life,


new double-CD as he turns 45
By Sandy Cohen

GROUNDBREAKING AT DAVEY GLEN

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Regis Homes Bay Area, an affiliate of Sares Regis Group of Northern California, celebrated July 13, the groundbreaking of the Davey Glen luxury community, with a ceremony held at the site on El Camino Real in Belmont.
In addition to representatives from the San Mateo-based real estate developer, several Belmont city officials
were in attendance, including Mayor Eric Reed, who spoke at the event before accepting a ceremonial sledgehammer from RHBA to symbolize the demolition of the obsolete office building and retail store on the site.
Here, Jeff Smith, Sares Regis Group of Northern California senior vice president of residential development; Reed
and Adele Della Santina, Belmont Chamber of Commerce vice president, hold the ceremonial sledgehammer.
Located on a 1.83-acre site in Belmont, the proposed development will consist of 73 units in four stories over parking and include 4,909 square feet of retail space. Plans call for completion in late 2018. Regis Contractors Bay Area,
RHBAs construction arm, will be building the project.

LOS ANGELES Nothing is off


the table in an interview with
Corey Feldman.
During a wide-ranging conversation over lunch at Jerrys Deli in
the San Fernando Valley neighborhood of Encino, Feldman talks
about his movies, past marriages,
his production company and
record label, his son, his home
recording studio, the group of
beauties he calls Coreys Angels,
and his new double-album 10 years
in the making. But most of all, he
talks about gratitude.
As Feldman turned 45 Saturday,
he feels deeply grateful for a contented life, and it shows.
I feel very grateful and very
lucky to be alive still, to have any
kind of semblance of normal life,
he says. I am blessed to have a
beautiful child, a beautiful home, a
beautiful girlfriend and a beautiful
career... I dont take any of it for
granted.
Feldman says he still does at
least one film a year, interspersing
acting with writing and recording
music.
His latest project is the Angelic
2 the Core album, 22 tracks he
wrote or co-wrote, save for a cover
of John Lennons Working Class
Hero. Feldmans first full solo
album since 2002s Former Child
Actor was released June 22.
While recovering from his second divorce and the deaths of his
grandfather and close friends
Michael Jackson and Corey Haim,
Feldman poured himself into
music, building a recording studio

in his house and tinkering on


every instrument. The result is the
genre-hopping album, which features such artists as Snoop Dogg
and Fred Durst, and Feldman playing everything from drums to keys
to bass and guitar.
There album spans electronica,
hip-hop, hard rock and even a
gospel choir. Disc one is all dance
music and dedicated to Jackson;
Disc two is rock-based and dedicated to Haim.
Theres something for everyone, Feldman says. The lyrics are
personal and positive, with songs
for his girlfriend, Courtney, and
son Zen, now 11.
The entertainers attitude of
gratitude comes from a practice of
daily prayer and nightly self-evaluation to see where he can
improve. Positivity was a survival
method during what he describes
as a heinous childhood.
A survivor of abuse by his mother and molestation by men in the
entertainment industry, Feldman
also struggled with drugs and a battered public image that made him
the butt of many a late-night
comics joke. He has been sober
for more than 25 years.
If the public ridicule hurt his
feelings, it hasnt stopped him
from being warm and open. He
wrote candidly about his life in his
2013 memoir, Coreyography,
which he says is being adapted for
the big screen.
Feldman also hasnt lost his
sense of humor. The album cover
features two of his Angels the
beautiful, young women whose
careers he says hes working to
jump start.

In Kansas City, police officers,
some with guns drawn, converged

The shooting which took
place just before 9 a.m., less than
a mile from police headquarters
came amid escalating tensions
across the country between the
black community and police. Just
days earlier, one of the slain officers posted an emotional
Facebook message about the challenges of police work in the current environment.
It was the fourth high-profile
deadly encounter in the United
States involving police over the
past two weeks. In all, the violence has cost the lives of eight
officers, including those in Baton
Rouge, and two civilians and
sparked a national debate over race
and policing.

Americans to tamp down inflammatory words and actions.
We as a nation have to be loud

than divide it further.
Authorities initially believed
that other assailants might be at
large, but hours later said that no
other active shooters were on the
loose. They did not discuss the
gunmans motive or any relationship to the wider police conflicts.
The shooting began at a gas station on Airline Highway.
According to radio traffic, Baton

a man with an assault rifle and
were met by gunfire. For several
long minutes, they did not know
where it was coming from.

Sedona bridge
to get barrier
to stop jumpers
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEDONA, Ariz. A barrier that would surround the railing of a Sedona area bridge where people have jumped to
their deaths is getting closer to construction.
The Sedona City Council will discuss the barrier proposed
for Midgley Bridge by the Arizona Department of
Transportation at a meeting July 26. The agency is recommending a chain link-style fence. The agency is recommending a chain link-style fence. The fence and the current
railing would make a 10-foot high barrier, according to
ADOT spokesman Tom Herrmann. The barrier will have 2inch openings to discourage anyone from attempting to
climb the fencing, Herrmann said in an email Friday.
Other specifics are still being discussed, he added.
There was one suicide last month, the only one so far this
year. But four people died last year after jumping from the
historic steel arch bridge. That is twice as many as any
other year in the past decade.
The mayor and the fire district in Sedona initially reached
out to the state, which owns the bridge, and suggested fencing along it or netting between it and the rocky ground
below. Since then, officials have installed signs one in
the parking lot and two on the bridge with a hotline for
those contemplating taking their own lives.
The city of Sedona held a public meeting on the barrier
last week.
Officials have expressed a desire for any preventative
measures so the site doesnt gain the same notoriety of the
Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco or the Rio Grande
Gorge Bridge in northern New Mexico.
Built in 1937, Midgley Bridge is listed on the National
Register of Historic Places and is incorporated into
Sedonas logo. It spans a chasm off Oak Creek Canyon with
a rock formation that resembles a steamboat in the background.
The Mental Health Coalition Verde Valley formed a suicide prevention task force for increased awareness of mental health issues and training on crisis situations. The
group has been working with the community. They have
spoken to school children, residents and organizations
about the effects of mental illness and warning signs of suicide.

after a scuffle at a convenience

In the message, Jackson said he
was physically and emotionally
tired and complained that while in
uniform, he gets nasty looks.
When hes out of uniform, he said,
some people consider him a
threat.
A friend of Jacksons family,
Erika Green, confirmed the posting, which is no longer on

image was circulating widely on
the internet.
The Baton Rouge attack unfolded hours after a domestic violence
suspect opened fire early Sunday
on a Milwaukee police officer who
was sitting in his squad car. The
officer was seriously wounded, and
the suspect fled and apparently
killed himself, authorities said.
Police-community relations in
Baton Rouge have been especially
tense since Sterlings death. The
killing was captured on cellphone
video.
It was followed a day later by the
shooting death of another black
man in Minnesota, whose girlfriend livestreamed the aftermath
of his death on Facebook. The
next day, a black gunman in Dallas
opened fire on police at a protest
about the police shootings,
killing five officers and heighten-

Thousands of people have
protested Sterlings death, and
Baton Rouge police arrested more
than 200 demonstrators.
Sterlings nephew condemned
the killing of the three Baton
Rouge officers. Terrance Carter
spoke Sunday to The Associated
Press by telephone, saying the
family just wants peace.
My uncle wouldnt want this,
Carter said. He wasnt this type
of man.
A few yards from a police roadblock on Airline Highway,
Keimani Gardner was in the parking lot of a warehouse store that
would ordinarily be bustling on a
Sunday afternoon. He and his girlfriend both work there. But the
store was closed because of the
shooting.
Its crazy. ... I understand some
people feel like enough is enough
with, you know, the black community being shot, said Gardner, an
African-American. But honestly,
you cant solve violence with violence.
Michelle Rogers and her husband drove near the shooting
scene, but were blocked at an
intersection closed by police.
I cant explain what brought us
here, she said. We just said a
prayer in the car for the families.

Berkeley student among the dead in France attack

burglaries.
Futrell said feedback from the Pecks
Lot initiative will inform the decision
of officials regarding whether to
install the new bulbs across the rest of
the city.
The Pecks Lot neighborhood has
recently suffered an uptick of people
dumping their trash in open lots, and
Futrell said he is hopeful the new
lights will be effective in helping
crack down on such behavior, as well
as other illicit activity.
We hope this works. I think it
will, he said. I dont know why it
wouldnt.
The current street lights are energyefficient bulbs that replaced old sodium lamps. The bulbs focus much of
their light in a concentrated pattern
directly below the lamp pole. The new
LED bulbs to be installed have a wider
light distribution and will shine more
along sidewalks and areas surrounding
the pole.

ing earlier this year took issues with


the existing, focused bulbs, claiming
the light did not adequately wash over
neighborhood sidewalks, and made
them feel unsafe while walking at
night.
Their fears at the time were compounded by a string of residential burglaries, and they expressed the belief
that better street lighting would help
deter the criminals from cruising
neighborhoods and seeking vulnerable homes.
Futrell said input from the Pecks Lot
residents will be integral in helping
officials selecting the best kind of
street light to address the needs of the
entire South San Francisco community.
To the extent you have suggestions, please contact us, he said.
Should the new lights not be deemed
up to par, Futrell said officials will
continue searching to find the right
solution for residents.
We will keep working at this until
you like the lighting, he said.
The Pecks Lot neighborhood was
selected to be the first to receive the
new street lights, said Futrell, because
the community has long been inadequately lit.

You have had lighting problems for


a long, long time, he said. It needs
attention.
During the meeting, residents presented Futrell with a petition featuring
signatures from members of the Pecks
Lot community who favored installing
improved street lighting.
Despite the lighting issues the
neighborhood has suffered, crime
remains relatively uncommon in
Pecks Lot, according to data presented
by Futrell.
Of the 142 calls to police from the
neighborhood this year, 19 resulted in
reports being filed, four led to violations being issued but there were no
incidents of home or auto burglaries,
said Futrell.
Beyond the street lights, new
paving and sidewalks improvements
are set to begin in Pecks Lot next year
as well, said Futrell.
The variety of projects will help the
neighborhood, and eventually, South
San Francisco become a happier and
safer community, said Futrell.
The goal is to pull together as a
neighborhood, and find some initiatives to improve the quality of life, he
said.

Brittan Avenue.
The store remained open in downtown Redwood City until Saturday
afternoon. The remaining inventoryc
was then be moved that night and the
next couple of days to the new San
Carlos location, expected to open
Tuesday.
Much of the inventory has already
been moved and the remaining inventory should be easy to stock on
shelves, Steve said Thursday.
Goetz Brothers has been a team
sports store since the late 1990s now
and services sports such as lacrosse,
volleyball, baseball, football and
rugby. It also specializes in making
custom-made uniforms.
Shoes are also a big seller and the
store has plenty of 49ers, Giants and
Warriors gear, including Kevin Durant
T-shirts.
The store is not moving, however,
after 80 years on Broadway because of
the buildings recent ownership
change and the possibility of rent
increases.

It needed more space and parking,


which there will be plenty of in San
Carlos, Steve said.
Many casual customers can walk
right by the store in Redwood City
without even noticing, he said.
We will be much more visible now,
Steve said.
Loyal customers, however, will find
you no matter where you are located, he
said.
The stores longtime employees,
including Justin Lax, are looking forward to the move.
Lax has worked at Goetz Brothers for
10 years and specializes in graphic
design. He prints up customized Tshirts for all kinds of local companies
including
current
neighbor
Powerhouse Gym in downtown
Redwood City.
Steve Goetz said the moveis bittersweet as Goetz Brothers has always
been a Redwood City store.

and take care of your responsibilities. Its what you

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Express your feelings
and share your ideas and plans. Not everyone will

but was denied because of severely low gas
tax revenue.
The
California
Department
of
Transportation must approve the MTC
request to pool the money from other projects to continue the Highway 101 carpool
lane study.
Environmental studies are already underway by C/CAG to study whether carpool
lanes and a possible toll lane/express lane
will work to ease congestion on Highway
101.
An express lane is essentially a carpool
lane that single drivers can pay for to
access.
Express lanes make sense for the corridor
because of the high number of express buses
that already travel on Highway 101, the bad
traffic that currently exists and the high
number of motorists who have the ability to
pay to access the lanes, said Randy
Rentschler, MTCs director of legislation
and public affairs.
The corridor has the prerequisites to
make it work, Rentschler said Friday.
MTC actually supports the concept of
express lanes throughout the entire Bay

who Donald Trump the man is, not
just Donald Trump the candidate,
Trumps campaign chairman, Paul
Manafort, said Sunday on the convention floor.
The pre-convention show got
off to a rocky start, as the addition
of Pence to the ticket dragged out
over a few days amid rumblings
that Trump was having second

Officials are seeking federal funding to study the feasibility of carpool lanes on Highway 101.
Area, he said.
But Highway 101, he said, is a significant priority for everybody.
C/CAG has partnered with the San Mateo
County Transit District and Caltrans to con-

thoughts. Trump called the Indiana


governor my first choice when
introducing him Saturday in New
York, but spent most of his 28minute speech talking about anything but his new running mate
and spent only a few seconds with
him on stage.

Who will speak?


The Trump campaign has not yet
released a full list of convention
speakers, or say who will speak
when, but plenty of Republicans
are skipping the show including the GOPs two living ex-pres-

duct an assessment of the corridor, which is


in the beginning stages of environmental
review, said the agencys Executive Director
Sandy Wong.
Those studies will not be completed for

idents and its last three nominees.


While an official printed convention program features Ohio Gov.
John Kasich and Sen. Rob
Portman near the front, neither
will speak or even appear inside
the convention hall.
The only professional athlete
on the program is pro golfer
Natalie Gulbis, after college football star Tim Tebow called his
attendance a rumor. Ivanka
Trumps rabbi, scheduled to deliver the opening prayer, also backed
out.
Trump and his allies do appear

another two years or more though, she said.


Although a high number of tech buses
drop off employees at corporate campuses
up and down the Peninsula, they get stuck in
traffic traveling north of Whipple Avenue
since there are no carpool lanes on Highway
101 in San Mateo County.
Assemblyman Kevin Mullin, D-South
San Francisco, has made improving traffic
on Highway 101 one of his top priorities.
Mullin introduced legislation last year to
develop a strategy to tame traffic as the
rebounding economy has led to slower commutes.
Mullins Assembly Bill 378 would make
congestion relief on Highway 101 a priority, however, the bill did not pass out of
committee.
Its critical that we examine all the possible alternatives to addressing the existing
congestion and express lanes are one of
those options. I have met with a number of
stakeholders since introducing AB 378 in
2015 to discuss strategies and options that
could address the issue. Hopefully, as the
study on express lanes proceeds, there will
be additional information and options that
will come to light. I am ready to work with
community groups, business leaders, transportation planners and local governments
to craft legislation that may be required to
assist in the process, Mullin wrote in an
email.

to have quashed a rebellion from


the so-called Never Trump
movement. Rebel delegates still
vow to cause convention mischief, but Trump will get an immediate boost when the nomination
roll call starts with Alabama. At
the mic will be delegation chairman Jeff Sessions, the first U.S.
senator to endorse Trump and one
of his most full-throated supporters in Congress.
This Never Trump push, its
been an interesting story, but its
one of noise at this point, not of
substance,

mine whether any other person in Congress
ever had any such history.
Espaillats shot at the November general
election didnt come easily.
He lost two previous primary attempts
against Rangel, the Lion of Harlem, who
was first elected in 1970 and is retiring this
year.
That means a new day for the historically
black 13th congressional district.
Changing demographics in recent years
helped.
The district is now about 55 percent
Hispanic, thanks to the addition of small
portions of the Bronx in its covered area. At
times, primary contests got heated, with
accusations that racial politics were being
played.
This time around, Espaillat competed

societys ills that police are asked to handle
from loose dogs to single-parent households. All for about $44,000 a year.
As much as possible, Whitaker tries to
explain that police are human too, and if
they might be a bit rude or brusque, its not
necessarily because of racism.
On the flip side, she tries to explain to
white colleagues why blacks might be distrustful or fearful when encountering an officer. The long history of police targeting
blacks for violence and going unpunished cant be easily dismissed.
As a detective, she doesnt wear a uniform.
When she goes to the city gas pumps, shes
been questioned about where she works.
Does he know that I work here? Yeah, he
sees me using my ID to get (gas), and they
still feel the need to ask me. And that hap-

Chairwoman Terry Lathan said


Sunday.

United party
That moment may help Trump
score what he needs most from the
convention: a picture of a
Republican Party united behind
his candidacy. To do it, the RNC
chairman suggests that for this
week, the infamously freewheeling Trump would do well to follow
