Public warned to stay

alert for whales, sharks
Recent sightings along San Mateo County coast, San Francisco Bay
By Samantha Weigel

With recent shark sightings and an uptick

in the number of migratory humpback
whales feeding closer to shore, environmental and police officials are advising the public to stay alert while visiting the beach.
Most recently, a 6-foot shark was reported
about 80 yards off the coast of Linda Mar
Beach around noon Thursday, according to
Pacifica police Lt. Chris Clements. The
report comes about a month after a surfer
spotted a 16-foot great white shark around
60 feet offshore, near the north end of the
popular beach on June 24, Clements said.
We tell people to always be careful when
theyre coming to our beaches. They should
always be aware of their surroundings, not
just because sharks are there in the ocean, we
all know they exist, but also because of the
rip current and tides, Clements said.
While shark sightings are not completely
uncommon, they are after all in their natural
habitat, Clements noted theres been chatter
that more whales are being spotted off the
San Mateo County coastline.
The increased sightings of wildlife activity whether it be whales, sharks or birds
likely has to do with the animals simply following their food, said Mary Jane Schramm,
a spokeswoman with the Greater Farallones
National Marine Sanctuary.
Schramm suggested people follow the
buddy system when they head to the beach or
venture into the water, also warning of riptides. People may want to avoid swimming
or surfing when signs indicating recent
shark sightings are posted, she said.
The uptick in recent whale sightings and
somewhat unusual animal behavior driving
them inland closer to humans may be related
to warmer ocean conditions, she noted.
When we have anomalous years like this
past year with the combination of the blob
(warm water in the Pacific) and El Nio, we
have elevated water temperatures and its
opening the door to a variety of wildlife
thats only found in much warmer waters,
Schramm said.
While not directly familiar with the
Pacifica sightings, Schramm said some
unusual activity is taking place throughout
marine sanctuaries that extends to the southern tip of San Mateo County and up to

the coast of Pacifica. Police are asking

and be careful in the water.
Bodega Bay.
We had some white shark sightings
inside San Francisco Bay as early as May,
which is unheard of. When we have had
previous white shark sightings in San
Francisco Bay, its always been in the fall,
so to have them showing up in basically
springtime is very unusual, Schramm said.
When we have these anomalous years, its
pretty much like no holds barred.
Everything goes, anything goes.
Sanctuary officials conduct regular expeditions to survey the area and theres undoubtedly been an uptick in the number of whales,
primarily humpbacks but some blues too,
she said. Another odd occurrence in recent
years that has increased this year is the number of humpbacks entering the San
Francisco Bay, Schramm said.
Sightings along the coast have also
increased, likely due to denser areas of
anchovies and krill being found closer to
shore, Schramm said.
We dont have anything to think that
their population has increased itself, but
they certainly are feeding closer to shore and
they actually have done this for the past few
years, because they will follow the food,
Schramm said.
An observer located at the lighthouse off
the southeast Farallon Island this week spotted 74 whales within an hour, the majority of
them humpbacks. Humpbacks are in the
midst of making their annual migration,
working to stock up on as much food as possible. So while it can be fascinating to see
them in their natural habitat, Schramm

Their one mission in life during part of
the year is to bank as many calories as they
can because they have to travel great distances down to breeding grounds. If theyre
distracted by people who think theyre pets,
they may not get a full tank, Schramm said.
Federal regulations suggest humans keep
at least a 100-yard distance from the whales,
she said. Other tragic consequences of
humans spooking whales could be to accidentally drive them toward ship traffic, putting them at risk for getting wounded,
Schramm said.
With an increase number of whales moving closer to shore and humans disturbing
them, the sanctuary has received calls and
emails from people demanding more be done
to protect them, Schramm said, noting people can face fines or even imprisonment for
intentional or egregious acts.
Weve been seeing and hearing a lot of
reports of people who are abusing this wonderful privilege we have of so many whales
in our area by getting very close to the
humpbacks, Schramm said. [People] need
to start thinking how do I fit in with my

Eighteen states see significant job

gains, but unemployment rises
By Josh Boak

WASHINGTON Unemployment rates

ticked up noticeably in six states in June,
even as employers continued to add jobs
and the hiring outlook improved.
The unemployment rate in 21 states is
now significantly below the national figure of 4.9 percent, while its higher in 14
states. In Colorado, the rate jumped 0.4
point from May to a still-low 3.7 percent
as more of its population began looking
for work without being hired, a positive
for the economy as it suggests greater
optimism that these people will find jobs.
A similar trend played out in five other
states: Nevada and Oregon each saw a 0.3
percent increase, while rates went up 0.2
points in Maine and South Dakota. Those
trends correspond with the national report
that saw the unemployment rate rise from
4.7 percent in May to 4.9 percent as more
workers started searching for jobs.
Development Department says the states
unemployment rate edged up to 5.4 percent in June.
The rate derived from a federal survey of
5,500 California households was 5.2 percent in May and 6.2 percent in June 2015.
The department said Friday, however,
that a separate survey of 58,000 business-

states lost a meaningful level of jobs.

This also matches the national figures that
showed an increase of 287,000 jobs in
June, after lackluster hiring in April and
South Dakota had the nations lowest
rate in June, at 2.7 percent, followed by
New Hampshire, at 2.8 percent. Alaska
had the highest unemployment rate at 6.7
Many places with very low unemployment rates have smaller populations.
Hawaii boasts an unemployment rate of
3.3 percent, while Idaho is at 3.7 percent.
Other states with a deeper pool of educated workers also have lower jobless
rates. Minnesota, which includes a thriving medical technology industry, has a
rate of 3.8 percent. Virginia, which has
many federal government workers and
contractors, also has a rate of 3.7 percent.

Obama and Mexican president

stress importance of relationship
By Darlene Superville

WASHINGTON President Barack Obama

and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto
reaffirmed the importance of the US-Mexico
relationship Friday, promoting the benefits
of trade and friendship in an election year
that has sometimes stressed that alliance.
In a news conference with Pena Nieto at
the White House, Obama said trade with
Mexico brings important investment and
jobs to the U.S. He said the United States
sells more to Mexico than to China, India
and Russia combined.
Obama said he has worked to deepen the
relationship during his presidency.
Were not just strategic and economic
partners, were also neighbors and were
friends, Obama said.
The news conference came the morning
after the closing of the Republican National
Convention and a speech by GOP nominee
Donald Trump, whose demands that Mexico
pay for a U.S. border wall and descriptions of

Mexican immigrants as
criminals and rapists has
offended the neighboring
Pena Nieto said a good
relationship with the
United States is essential for his country and
said he looks forward to a
frank, open dialogue
Barack Obama with whomever is elected. Pena Nieto avoided
questions about the wall,
but has previously said
that Mexico will not pay
for the wall Trump proposes.
The two men also
endorsed the TransPacific Partnership trade
agreement that both
Enrique Nieto countries have signed on
to, saying it would make
the relationship between their countries
even stronger.


Barbara Johnston Bone

September 10, 1921 July 19, 2016
Barbara Johnston Bone passed peacefully at her home in San Mateo
on July 19, where she lived for 64 years. She is survived by her only son,
William Richard Stanley Bone, and her two grandsons, Bradley Wilson
Bone and Bryan Christopher Bone.
Barbara was born in San Francisco on September 10, 1921. She
graduated from Lowell High School in San Francisco in 1939. After
attending San Jose State University for two years, she left to become a
secretary at the Presidio army base during WWII.
In 1947, Barbara married William Bone. Their only son was born the following year, and in 1952
the family moved to a house in San Mateo, where she resided ever since. Barbara began working
at Pan American Airlines in 1959, where she worked for 26 years. Over the years she traveled all
over the world to destinations such as Great Britain, France, Spain, the USSR, Egypt, Morocco,
Nigeria, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Japan.
After her retirement in 1985, Barbara found joy volunteering with the Mills Peninsula Hospital
Auxiliary for 19 years. She also volunteered her time as a poll worker during elections. In her later
years, she enjoyed watching tennis and the San Francisco Giants in the comfort of her home.
Her funeral service will be held at Crosby-N. Gray Funeral Home in Burlingame on July 25th at 10
am. The service will be followed by internment at Skylawn Memorial Park in San Mateo.

Summer heat wave

building in California
LOS ANGELES A strong high-pressure
system over the nations midsection built
westward into California on Friday, baking
inland areas of the southern counties in dry,
triple-digit heat while raising wildfire danger in the parched region.
Day-to-day warming was expected to
spread similar highs up the San Joaquin and
Sacramento valleys during the weekend,
forecasters said.
Readings of 100-plus degrees stretched
from the interior of Los Angeles County

Overall, the days temperatures were

The hot conditions will result in an
increased risk of heat-related illnesses,
especially for the homeless, the elderly,
infants, outdoor workers and those participating in outdoor activities, the National
Weather Service said.

State to levy fee on rail cars

carrying dangerous chemicals
SACRAMENTO California plans to
levy a $45 fee later this year on rail cars carrying dangerous chemicals across the state.
The move follows several oil train derailments in the country, including in neighboring Oregon. A recent analysis conducted
by the Office of Emergency Services found
gaps in Californias ability to handle such
spills, prompting the state Legislature to
order the fee program.
Railroad companies call the proposed fee
illegal. Federal law prohibits states from
imposing constraints on interstate commerce of railways.
The state compiled a list of 25 of the most
hazardous materials shipped by rail. Each
car carrying one of those materials will face
the $45 fee.

Nurturing the next

generation of news
By Austin Walsh

Aspiring reporters, editors and members

of the media in the making may soon enjoy
lessons designed to help them usher in the
next generation of the news industry, under
an innovative journalism education initiative offered to local teachers.
A group of San Mateo Union High School
District teachers will travel to Washington,
D.C., where they will engage in an almost
weeklong summer professional development program hosted by PBS crafted to help
them enhance their journalism curriculum.
Patsy Fergusson and Jane McCabe, of San
Mateo High School; Nick Carillo, of
Aragon High School; Stephen Erle, of
Burlingame High School; and Allison
Gamlen, of Hillsdale High School; were
selected among the 36 teachers from across
the nation who will participate in the workshop.
Teachers will work alongside media professionals to help them develop skills in
reporting, social media, storytelling, video
production and a variety of other talents
which will ultimately be passed along to
Fergusson said she appreciated the opportunity to participate in the PBS NewsHour
Student Reporting Labs program, as she
believes it will help her better hone the
skills of students who will be on the cutting
edge of an industry in transition.
Journalism has really changed in the last
20 years, and Im glad PBS is flexible and
trying to respond to that, she said. They
are reaching out and making sure that journalism is still part the education of young
people, which is important for democracy.
She said she hopes the PBS program helps
her and her colleagues offer lessons accommodating a changing audience which consumes news primarily through phones,
computers and other technological devices
rather than print media.
Yet despite shrinking newsrooms, newspaper
resources for media companies and a variety
of other discouraging signs for high
schoolers considering a career in news,
Fergusson said she still recognizes a passion and interest for journalism among her

delightful, she said.
The earlier relationship established
between Fergusson and the station facilitated her trip to the East Coast, which will also
be furnished entirely by PBS, and the opportunity is now hers to learn more about the
next generation of journalism.
Fergusson said she is intrigued by the
shift in the industry in which she used to
work as a former newspaper employee.
Journalism is changing in positive and
negative ways, she said. It is an exciting
The news industry must also adapt to

that almost everyone is equipped with a

The rise of citizen journalism has really

hands of the few, she said. There are pluses and minuses to that, because there are not

Mills-Peninsula begins
construction of replacement helipad
Mills-Peninsula Health Services has
begun construction of a helipad to replace
the one demolished during construction of
Mills-Peninsula Medical Center, which
opened in May 2011.
Once constructed, the helipad will facilitate transport of critically ill patients and
enhance Mills-Peninsulas participation in
the newly-launched Sutter Health medical
transport network. Via air ambulance, critically ill patients will be transported more
quickly and efficiently both within the
Sutter Health network and outside of it,
according to Mills-Peninsula officials.
The $2.5 million helipad is being built in
the parking lot adjacent to MillsPeninsulas Emergency Department.
Technically, the 65-foot square helipad is
a helideck because of its tabletop design:
The landing area will be on a raised and
lighted platform, 12 feet above ground
level, with a gurney ramp for entry and exit.
Beneath the landing surface, MillsPeninsula will store disaster supplies. It
will accommodate two types of helicopters:
Lifeflight emergency air ambulance service
and Jayhawks, which are typically used in
Coast Guard rescue operations, according to
Plans were originally approved by the
city of Burlingame in 2004 and construction of the helipad is scheduled to be completed later this fall, according to officials.

News briefs

MIAMI Authorities say three Florida

men planned to travel to Syria and become
fighters for the Islamic State.
Federal prosecutors said in a news release
Friday that 52-year-old Gregory Hubbard,
31-year-old Dayne Christian and 50-yearold Darren Jackson of Palm Beach County
are charged with conspiring to join the
Islamic State. They were arrested Thursday.
An FBI report says the three told an
informant last year about plans to go to
Syria, and spoke approvingly of terror
attacks in Orlando, San Bernardino,
California, and elsewhere. It also says they
talked about attacking the White House or
Pentagon but took no specific steps.
The three are being held pending arraignment.

Hillary Clinton chooses Sen.

Tim Kaine as running mate
By Ken Thomas
and Alan Suderman


WASHINGTON President Barack Obama fiercely

rejected Donald Trumps depiction of an America in crisis
on Friday, arguing that violent crime and illegal immigration have plunged under his leadership to their lowest
rates in decades.
Looking to Novembers election, Obama said, Were
not going to make good decisions based on fears that
dont have a basis in fact.
At a news conference alongside Mexicos president,
Obama sought to undermine two pillars of Trumps speech
Thursday night in which he accepted the Republican presidential nomination. Trump said that if he is elected,
safety will be restored at home and abroad.
This idea that American is somehow on the verge of
collapse, this vision of violence and chaos everywhere,
doesnt really jibe with the experience of most people,
Obama told journalists.
The violent crime rate, he said, has been lower during
his presidency than any time in the last three or four
decades. While he acknowledged an uptick in murders in
some U.S. cities this year, Obama said the violent crime
rate today is still far lower than when Ronald Reagan was
president in the 1980s.
The violent crime rate has been on a long-term decline,
receding to 366 per 100,000 people in 2014. It was 758
per 100,000 in the peak year of 1991.
Obama used the same marker for immigration, describing todays rate of illegal border crossing as only a third
of what it was during the Reagan administration, and
lower than at any time since. About 331,000 people were
apprehended crossing the Mexican border illegally last
year; there were 1.6 million arrests in 1986.
Speaking after an evening in which Trump laid out his
case to be the next commander in chief, Obama grimaced
noticeably when a reporter suggested the billionaire businessmans message appeals to working-class Americans.
Its not really clear how appealing it was, Obama

tary affairs, he built a reputation for
working across the aisle as Virginias
governor and as mayor of Richmond.
Hes also fluent in Spanish, making
him a valuable asset in Spanish-language media as the campaign appeals
to Hispanic Americans turned off by
Trumps harsh rhetoric about immigrants.
Clinton weighed two finalists:
Kaine and Agriculture Secretary Tom
Vilsack, a longtime friend of the candidate and former President Bill Clinton.
Kaines strong ties to politically

important Virginia, as well as his foreign policy experience, put him over
the top, according to a person close to
the campaign, who insisted on
anonymity because the person was not
authorized to discuss the process publicly.
Kaine and Vilsack each had friends
and allies lobbying the Clinton campaign on their behalf. But Kaine had a
particularly powerful backer: Obama,
who told the campaign during the
selection process that the senator
would be a strong choose.

Trump takes time from victory lap to swat at Cruz


CLEVELAND A day after accepting the Republican presidential nomination, Donald Trump pivoted back to

to re-litigate a pair of monthsold battles with rival Ted Cruz.

his thundering acceptance speech,
Trump instead defended his decision

IMF chief Lagarde to stand
trial in French arbitration deal
PARIS Frances top court has ruled that International
Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde must stand trial in
France over a 2008 arbitration ruling that handed 400 million euros to a politically-connected business magnate.
Lagarde, who was French finance minister at the time of
the deal in favor of tycoon Bernard Tapie, is accused of negligence in the case. She has denied wrongdoing.
A special court ruled in December that Lagarde should
stand trial, but she appealed. Frances Court of Cassation on
Friday rejected the appeal.
Lagarde lawyer Patrick Maisonneuve expressed disappointment at the decision, but told the Associated Press that
he expects the trial to show that the IMF chief did nothing

NEW DELHI The Indian air force Friday lost contact
with a transport plane carrying 29 people to islands in the
Bay of Bengal, the defense ministry said.
The air force, navy and coast guard were using ships,
planes and helicopters to conduct a massive search.
The AN-32 aircraft took off from the southern city of
Chennai at 8.30 a.m. and was flying over the water to the
city of Port Blair in the Andaman and Nicobar islands, said
Nitin Wakankar a spokesman for Indias defense ministry.
The flight, covering 1,375 kilometers (854 miles), was
supposed to last three hours. The Russian-made aircraft
could go for four hours without refueling, Wakankar said.

Stocks creep higher again, S&P at record high

By Stan Choe



NEW YORK Another day,

another lazy drift higher for
stocks and another record high.
The Standard & Poors 500
index rose 9.86 points, or 0.5 percent, to 2,175.03 on Friday. It
surpassed its prior record set
Wednesday by 0.09 percent, the
latest nudge higher for a market
that has taken a decidedly slowand-steady path to all-time highs
in recent weeks. Telecom and utility stocks led the way, as they
have for much of this year.
The Dow Jones industrial average rose 53.62 points, or 0.3 percent, to 18,570.85. The Nasdaq
composite rose 26.26, or 0.5 percent, to 5,100.16. The gains sent
all three indexes to their fourth
consecutive winning week, their
longest streak since March.
Many doubts still hang over the
market, including the continued
drop for corporate earnings and a
U. S. economy that is growing
only modestly. But various earnings and economic reports have
come in better than expected, and
the S&P 500 is up nearly 9 percent




since June 27.

Southwestern Energy had the
biggest gain in the S&P 500 following its own better-thanexpected earnings report. It lost
money in the latest quarter, but
less than analysts estimated. The
producer of natural gas and oil also
raised its forecast for production
this year, and its stock jumped
$1.26, or 9.5 percent, to $14.47.
American Airlines Group likewise rose despite reporting a drop
in earnings. It climbed $1.40, or 4

The telecom and utilities sectors
each rose 1.3 percent to lead the

Honeywell International fell
$3. 05, or 2. 6 percent, to
$115.61. The company reported
stronger earnings than analyst
expected, but it also lowered its
forecast for full-year sales. It
helped hold the industrial sector to

Volkswagen has emissions-cheating fix ready

By Tom Krisher

DETROIT Volkswagens plan

to fix most of its 2-liter diesel
engines that cheat on emissions
tests includes a computer software update and a larger catalytic
converter to trap harmful nitrogen oxide, and it may not hurt
mileage or performance, according to dealers who were briefed by

executives on the matter.

Limited details of the plan were
made public last week at a regional dealer meeting in Newark, New
Jersey, by Volkswagen of America
Chief Operating Officer Mark
McNabb, said two dealers who
asked not to be identified because
the plan hasnt been made public.
One dealer said the group was
told that early testing of a small
sample of repaired cars showed

that the fix made no discernable

difference in the cars mileage,
horsepower or torque. Both dealers said they were told that more
testing was needed and that the
plans still had to be approved by
U. S.
Protection Agency and the
California Air Resources Board.
If the fixes dont hurt performance and mileage, that could be a
big boost for Volkswagen, which

last month agreed to spend up to

$15.3 billion to settle consumer
lawsuits and government allegations that its diesels cheated on
U.S. emissions tests. The settlement included up to $10 billion
that would go to over 475,000
owners of 2-liter VW or Audi
diesels, giving them the choice of
selling the cars back at the prescandal value or getting them

Too busy for Pokemon? These entrepreneurs will play for you

NEW YORK Too busy with

your real life to play the hit augmented reality game Pokemon
Go? For a price, some entrepreneurs will play the game for you.
New ads are popping up on
Craigslist nearly every day from

people who say they will log on

to your Pokemon Go account
and effectively run up your score
while you are stuck at work or sitting in class.
On a recent July afternoon, two
24-year-old Pokemon trainers,
Lewis Gutierrez and Jordan Clark,
walked through

Prospect Park with their eyes

glued to their phones, tapping and
swiping away to catch virtual
Pokemon for clients paying about
$20 per hour for the service.
Gutierrez, who described himself as a welder and writer, said he
began by helping relatives with
the game after it was released in

the U.S. in early July.

Then he put a post on Craigslist
advertising his services professionally.

The S&P 500 has not had a day
where it moved by 1 percent, up or
down, in the last two weeks. Its a
sharp turnaround from the end of
June, when worries about the
United Kingdoms vote to leave
the European Union sent the S&P
500 to six straight days where it
swung at least 1 percent.
The biggest loss for the S&P
500 over that span was Thursdays

quickly snapped up stocks the following day.

He was one of the forerunners, standard
bearers from an African-American standpoint, Vikings COO Kevin Warren said.
He was there early and won a lot of football
games. He not only got in that position as
a head coach, he then hired people and gave
them opportunities.
Green spent 10 seasons in Minnesota,
leading the Vikings to eight playoff appearances and two NFC championship games.
He only had one losing season and compiled an overall record of 97-62, a mark second only to Bud Grant in franchise history.

That included a 15-1 regular season in 1998

NEW YORK Giants shortstop Brandon

Crawford earned his rst Gold Glove last
season, enhancing his reputation as a guy
with a rocket arm.
He had been pretty sharp in the eld this
year, too until Friday night.
Crawford made three errors for the rst
time in his career, all on throws. His wild
toss in the eighth inning let the go-ahead
run score and sent San Francisco to its season-worst sixth straight loss, 3-2 to the
New York Yankees.
Three errors? Nah, its not happened
before, Crawford said.
Just three kind of weird plays, all different kind of throws that happened to get
away from me, he said.
The Giants held the best record in the
majors at the All-Star break, but havent
won since. The NL West leaders also lost
catcher Buster Posey, who fouled a ball off
his right foot and left with a bruise. X-rays
were negative and he was listed as day to
Im just sore right now. Well have to see
tomorrow, he said.
Giants ace Madison Bumgarner gave up
two runs in seven innings. Yankees starter
Masahiro Tanaka pitched six shutout
innings, allowing four hits.
The Giants nicked Dellin Betances in the
seventh, pulling within 2-1 on a walk, a
double by Denard Span and a wild pitch. That
ended a streak of 31 scoreless innings by
Yankees relievers.
A double by Giants pinch-hitter Mac
Williamson off Andrew Miller (6-1) tied it in
the eighth. Aroldis Chapman closed in the
ninth for his 20th save in 21 chances, working around a leadoff double.
We hit a couple of balls hard, but we didnt get a break, Giants manager Bruce
Bochy said. And thats the way it goes.
When youre in winning streaks, everything
goes right. Right now, its not going well
for us. But still, you make your breaks.

Mac Williamson hits a eighth-inning double to tie the score, but the Yankees scratched an

After Burlingame tied the score in the

FC Tucson caught a break less than 10 minutes later when, on its eighth corner kick of
the night, it finally converted. The ball was
crossed into the goal box where Burlingame
goalkeeper Nico Corti went up high to make
the catch.
He failed to corral it, however, dropping
the ball to Tucson. With Corti well off his
line, Tucson worked the ball around to Ozzie

IOC: 45 more positive cases in retests of 2008, 12 samples

By Stephen Wilson

LONDON Forty-five more athletes,

including 31 medalists, have been caught for
doping after retesting of samples from the last
two Summer Olympics, the IOC said Friday.
The new cases bring to 98 the total number
of athletes who have failed tests so far in the
reanalysis of their stored samples from the
2008 Beijing Olympics and 2012 London
Using the very latest scientific analysis
methods, the latest round of retests produced
30 provisional positive findings from
Beijing and 15 confirmed positives from
London, the International Olympic
Committee reported.
The IOC said 23 medalists from Beijing and

eight medal winners from London were among

those caught.
No names were given.
The IOCs news release cited 23 medalists
from Beijing, but did not mention any from
London. However, an IOC spokeswoman,
Emmanuelle Moreau, confirmed later to The
Associated Press that the London positive
tests included eight medal winners.
The IOC stores doping samples for 10 years
so they can be retested when new methods
become available, meaning drug cheats who
escaped detection at the time can be caught
years later.
In a separate announcement Friday, the IOC
stripped a Turkish weightlifter of her silver
medal from the Beijing Games after her urine
sample came back positive for steroids in new

The IOC said Sibel Ozkan tested positive for

stanozolol and was ordered to return her medal
in the 48-kilogram class. The 28-year-old
lifter also faces a possible ban from the
International Weightlifting Federation.
Ozkan is the second athlete formally disqualified so far by the IOC in the retesting program. Last week, Ukrainian weightlifter Yulia
Kalina was stripped of her bronze medal from
the London Olympics after her sample came
back positive for the steroid turinabol.
The retesting program has targeted athletes
who were in contention to compete at the
upcoming Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, but
has also been widened to cover many medalists.
All athletes found to have infringed the
anti-doping rules will be banned from competing at the Rio Games, the IOC said.

The announcement comes at a time when

the IOC is weighing whether to ban Russia
from the Rio Olympics over allegations of
systematic and state-run doping.
On Thursday, the Court of Arbitration for
Sport upheld an IAAF ban on Russias track
and field athletes from the games. The IOC
executive board is scheduled to hold a meeting
Sunday amid calls by anti-doping bodies to
exclude Russia entirely from Rio.
The IOC said the previous first wave of
retests had found 30 positive cases from
Beijing and 23 from London. The Russian
Olympic Committee has said 22 of those
cases involved Russian athletes, including
A total of 1,243 samples have been retested

U.S. women hope to give

Karolyi golden sendoff

After 40 years helping some of the greatest

gymnasts of all time soar to Olympic gold
from Nadia Comaneci to Mary Lou Retton to
Nastia Liukin Martha Karolyi is ready to
say goodbye. The U.S. womens national team
coordinator is retiring after the 2016 Games.
The five-woman group Karolyi is bringing
to Rio de Janeiro Simone Biles, Gabby
Douglas, Aly Raisman, Madison Kocian and
Laurie Hernandez has the perfect going
away present in mind: Gold. Lots and lots of
gold. Maybe all six available, something
thats never been done by one country in a single Olympiad.
Its a testament to the empire Karolyi has
built since taking over the program in 2001
that its not merely just hype but entirely plausible, a luxury afforded when you have the
three-time reigning world champion (Biles),
the defending Olympic champion (Douglas), a
three-time Olympic medalist (Raisman) and
the reigning uneven bars world champion
(Kocian) on the roster.
The gap between the U.S. and the rest of the
world has grown since the Fierce Five rolled
to the team gold four years ago. The chance of
anyone overcoming it is akin to the odds of
Michael Jordan and the original Dream Team
falling in Barcelona in 1992. No one came
close back then. If the Americans do what
theyve done at every major international
event since 2011, Karolyis final meet will be
more of an extended victory lap.

reigning all-around champion to repeat in
nearly 50 years. While topping Biles seems
unlikely, the 20-year-old Douglas could follow in the footsteps of Comaneci, who won
the all-around in Montreal in 1976 and earned
silver in Moscow in 1980. Douglas path back
to the Olympics has been bumpy of late.
Though she was runner-up to Simone Biles at
the 2015 world championships and captured
the American Cup in March, she struggled at
times during the selection process and parted
with coach Kittia Carpenter in early July.

Michael Phelps is back for a sequel to his

Olympic farewell.
This time, he insists, it really is goodbye.
After retiring and then un-retiring, Phelps
will be in Rio as the rst U.S. male swimmer
to compete in ve Olympics. He is already
the most decorated athlete in the history of
the games, with 18 golds and 22 medals
overall, and at age 31 remains the biggest
star in a sport that will also feature teen sensation Katie Ledecky and an increasingly
diverse pool of potential champions from
around the world.
Look for Phelps to add signicantly to
his medal total. He qualied for his three
best individual events and will likely be
part of all three mens relays on the powerful U.S. team.
Just dont expect another comeback.
This is it, Phelps said. No more.

Sure about that?

Im done, he reiterated. The body is
done. This is my last one.
Phelps initially retired after the London
Games, only to backtrack on that decision
about 18 months later.
Looking back to four years ago, Phelps
said he didnt really want to be at the
Olympics and wasnt in top condition, even
though he was still good enough to capture
four golds and two silvers. He came back
with a rekindled passion for swimming,
only to run into another major challenge
when he was arrested for the second time on
drunken driving charges.
That led Phelps to completely overhaul
his personal life. He went into therapy,
gave up alcohol, got engaged, made peace
with his estranged father and, in the biggest
change of all, became a father for the rst
time when son Boomer was born in May.
No matter what happens in Rio, this is
how he really wants to go out.

From booth to car: Gordon preps for surprise return

By Michael Marot

INDIANAPOLIS Jeff Gordon always

expected to be at this weekends Brickyard 400.
The tricky part was figuring out his role.
One week after Gordon asked his publicist to
delay a long-planned announcement that he
would drive the pace car before a race he won
five times, the four-time

has not yet been cleared by doctors to climb
back into the car.
When Earnhardt took himself out of the No.
88 last weekend, Hendrick contacted his longtime star who was vacationing in France.
Gordon agreed to pinch-hit when he returned.
Gordon then texted publicist Jon Edwards, who
contacted the speedway 15 minutes before the
scheduled announcement.
For the Rainbow Warrior, this weeks pace

has been every bit as frantic.

He flew to New York on Tuesday, then hopped
on Hendricks plane, bound for North Carolina
as Earnhardt was seeing doctors in Pittsburgh.
After landing in Charlotte, Gordon was
whisked to team headquarters for a seat fitting.
On Wednesday, the day it was announced
Earnhardt would miss two more races, Gordon

Skaters excited for new Dew Tour format


LONG BEACH Skateboarding stars such as Sean Malto,

Theotis Beasley and Trevor Colden will compete this weekend in the new-look Dew Tour at the Long Beach
Convention Center.
The biggest change is a four-part skate course that will
challenge skaters and make it easier for fans to understand
the scoring system.
Four different courses, thats a new thing in skateboarding, Malto said. Im looking forward to it. Its going to be
a lot of skating. Its going to be kind of intense because
sometimes as a skater you can pick what you like in a course
and stick to that. But in this we have to get outside of our
comfort zone. It will force me to skate and compete. I like
that challenge. Its a good format.
Malto said itll be like four different mini-skate parks.
One section will be all hand rails and at bars, one section
will be gaps where skaters will do ip tricks and jumping
down ramps and over sets of stairs, another section will be
a technical section with ledges where skaters can ip in and
out, and the last section will be a big bowl.
Malto described it as more of a jam format, a little more
open. Youll basically be put on each section for three minutes at a time, skate and ow and see what you come up with.

The Nuggets 14U, 16U and 18U teams
will participate in the Premier Division,
with the U18 team kicking off pool play
this weekend in Huntington Beach, with the
knockout portion of the tournament slated
to begin Monday. The 16U and 14U tournaments begin July 31 and run through Aug. 6
For an organization to qualify teams in
three age divisions at the Premier level is
unprecedented and is a testament to the hard
work of our players and coaches Haley
Woods, founder and president of the Cal
Nuggets, said in a press release. Our girls
will have a chance to play against the best

players in the country many of which are

going to Division I major conference
schools in the future.
Woods is a former Burlingame and Cal
softball standout, who has spent the last

dying. Theyre not going anywhere for a long, long
time. So-called experts have been predicting the
death of print newspapers for decades.
A few papers have bit the dust, but not for lack of

In the second half, the tables turned.
Burlingame came out of the locker room on
fire, applying pressure from the whistle.
After not catching any breaks in the first
half, the soccer gods smiled on Burlingame
in the second half. In the 60th minute, Gabe
Silveira took a long pass along the left
wing and slotted a diagonal through ball
into the path of Khalid Arramdani. His first
shot went off the post, but he calmly collected the rebound and roofed it to cut the
Dragons deficit in half.
Burlingame found the equalizer in the
74th on a piece of shoddy defensive work
by Tucson. There was a long back pass to
the Tucson goalkeeper, near the right edge
of the penalty box. With Arramdani applying pressure, the goalkeeper hurried his
clearance kick sending it right to
Theirjung, who immediately aimed a shot
toward the far right post from about 40
yards. With the goalkeeper well off his line,
Theirjungs shot nestled past the right post
to tie the score at 2.
Minutes later, however, Tucson took
advantage of a Burlingame mistake to end
the Dragons season.

tial community outreach process as it
undertook a more than $2 million upgrade
of the aging playground at the popular park
off Alameda de las Pulgas and 28th Avenue.
This Saturday, the nature-themed playground will officially reopen to the public,
showing off a truly unique design with
standout features such as the towers, a 26foot tall Swedish-fabricated climbing structure.
We think its awesome. There is
absolutely no other playground in this area
that I think even comes close to the design
we have. So I think the kids will be
absolutely thrilled at playing on this new
structure, said Parks and Recreation
Director Sheila Canzian.
In a twist to the citys typical public outreach process, staff worked closely with
two fifth-grade classes at Beresford
Elementary School to hear firsthand what

Mondays council action is only to offer
residents a choice.
If approved, the citys sales tax would
increase to 9.5 percent and is expected to
generate about $1.3 million in locallycontrolled revenue each year. As a general
sales tax, the funds are not specifically
earmarked to any particular project so the
measure would need a simple majority, or
just more than 50 percent, to pass.
The city has identified nearly $100 million worth of unmet street and storm drain
infrastructure needs, and the community
has indicated their priorities include tending to capital projects as well as maintaining emergency services, according to the

the kids would delight over. Julee Flores,

one of the teachers whose classes participated in the design process three years ago,
said more than 45 students were able to
share their insight.
The kids were just really excited and
asked some great questions, like well what
about trees? Or where are people going to
sit and eat? So they were very thoughtful
and they wanted to make sure they had fun,
but that it would be functional too, Flores
said. I just think its great that they went
to the community thats going to be using
the park for input on what its going to
look like.
Recalling field trips to the park and city
staff keeping the kids apprised of the
progress, Flores noted the students are now
on their way to high school.
Beresford Principal Cristina Haley and
her daughter Savannah Haley, who was part
of the fifth-grade class, popped by the park
Thursday, eager to see the new playground.
Since we were at Beresford, they were
really trying to make sure the kids that
would get affected most by the park got to
choose what would be there, Savannah

Haley said. I was very surprised. It looks

completely different. I love this big climbing structure, thats really cool and I know
a lot of kids are going to love it.
Now 14 years old, her age wont deter her
from appreciating the more colorful design
to which her fifth-grade class contributed.
Im for sure going to go on it, she said.
Having the playground shut down for a
year was tough, but there is a special connection between the families who participated in the design process and the new
site, said Jenna Carson, whose son J.D.
was in Flores class.
I feel fortunate to have been in the right
place at the right time to give input on this
new park, which will be great for the little
kids, said J.D. Carson, before adding his
attention is now on getting new basketball
Cristina Haley said shes pleased by the
new playground layout that will allow parents to keep an eye on both younger kids
and older ones at the same time. The
thoughtful design has space for children to
interact with each other while playing
amongst the structures and is unlike any-

thing shes seen.

Everything kind of blends in with that
whole beautiful park now, it really is a stunning renovation project. Im very
impressed, Cristina Haley said.
Designed by Miller Company Landscape
Architects, with input from multiple community meetings, Canzian said the city
incorporated some of the kids suggestions, such as having a nature-themed playground without any sand and, of course,
new swings.
Flores, who has now taught at Beresford
for 12 years, said shes thrilled her students
have made a lasting mark on this community asset.
Its just a staple in our community and it
was just really a great experience to be a
part of that and have my students be a part
of that, Flores said. It shows that they do
make a difference, their opinion does matter.

drain pipes as well as 69 miles of street

pavement that are deficient or in at risk
condition, according to the report.
The issues are the same issues weve
had for a long time. We have underfunded
capital needs that we need to address. Our
roads are among the worst in the Bay Area,
I believe theyre the worst in San Mateo
County, and we have storm drains that are
inadequate and crumbling. People want to
make sure we maintain our services for
emergency response and we want the voters of Belmont to decide what is the right
way to fund all of this, Reed said.
But some question whether the citys
cost estimates are exaggerated and argue
the city already has sufficient revenue to
fund annual repairs. Resident Tim Strinden
wonders whether the survey questions
asked of participants were misleading, and
contends some of the city infrastructure,
such as its storm drains, may not be in as
much disrepair as officials are claiming.
Another vocal opponent, resident Perry
Kennan, said the city should set clear
goals for street improvements before

jumping to a new tax and feels officials

have not sufficiently explained the infrastructure problems to citizens.
Not only is the proposed sales tax
unnecessary, but the process leading up to
it has been lacking in transparency,
Strinden wrote in an email, adding the
infrastructure subcommittee has reportedly not met in a year.
Belmonts storm drains, streets and sewers are 50 years old or older and have long
been a concern to officials who contend
kicking the can down the road will only
increase costs. Reed noted the tax, which
is estimated to generate $39 million in
todays dollars, will not fully close the
Officials are taking a two-pronged
approach by both seeking the sales tax
revenue as well as promoting economic
development, Reed said. He pointed to
recent projects such as two hotel developments and the citys approval of a digital
billboard, revenue from which will help
support projects and programs that benefit
the community.

The additional tax revenue could also be

used to support emergency response times
such as police and fire departments, to
which a large chunk of the citys annual
budget goes, according to the report.
Reed emphasized while some may never
be convinced there are outstanding needs
within the community, Belmonts
finances are simply not enough to deal
with the multi-million dollar backlog of
repairs to vital infrastructure used day in
and day out.
We still have a problem that cannot be
adequately funded given our current
resources, Reed said. I am not pushing
for any particular outcome, I am pushing
to give voters a chance to weigh in on
this. This is about, as silly as it sounds,
its about basic democracy; giving people
a chance to determine how they want to
fund these critical infrastructure needs.

Birbiglia gives
improv its close-up

offers little
on comedy

By Sandy Cohen

Pour some Champagne, light a smoke and put

on something gorgeous, dahling, because the
women of Absolutely Fabulous are back.
Its been 24 years since Jennifer Saunders and
Joanna Lumley made their debut as hard-partying
best friends Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone on the
BBC sitcom, and they bring the same outrageous
boozy charm to their big-screen adventure,
Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie.
Theyve also brought along some familiar
faces, including Eddys put-upon daughter,
Saffron (Julia Sawalha), and long-suffering
assistant, Bubble (Jane Horrocks), as well
as a slew of celebrities, models and
designers in delightful cameos. Jon
Hamm, Rebel Wilson and Chris Colfer
play small roles.
Fans of the series will be relieved to see
that Eddy (Saunders, who created the show
and wrote the films screenplay) and
Patsy (Lumley) havent matured a bit
during their time away from the
screen. But no prior knowledge of
the characters is needed to appreciate such overblown selfishness and superficiality in a
post-Kardashian world.

takes on Russian
By David Bratman

Russian music is the theme of this years

Music@Menlo chamber music festival.
Last Saturdays opening night concert, at
the Menlo-Atherton Center for the
Performing Arts, addressed the question:
How, in less than 35 years, did the image of
Russian music change from the lush but
Tchaikovskys Serenade for Strings to the
harsh rhythmic brutality of Stravinskys
Rite of Spring?
The program faced this question by pairing both of these bookmarks with music
written (mostly) during the interval
between those two works by two pianistcomposers of intermediate age, Alexander
Scriabin and Sergei Rachmaninoff. They
served to draw the line between
Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky.
Menlo is known for its genteel, civilized, thoughtful performances. Saturdays
served to bring these four disparate Russian
composers closer together, to meet somewhere in the middle.
Tchaikovskys Serenade is a work for
string orchestra. Menlo played it with a
chamber orchestra of 15 players, a mixture
of festival principal artists, young professionals from their International Program
and others, led by concertmaster Nicolas
Dautricourt. Perhaps because of the small
size of the group or because theyre more
used to chamber than instrumental playing, the sound came out grittier than usual

for this smooth and gentle work. A premonition of the harsher music to come, perhaps.
Rachmaninoff was represented by his
Suite for two pianos, Op. 17. This sounds
less like his monumental concertos than
like the sparkly bits of Tchaikovsky.
Rachmaninoff likes to jangle around the
upper register of the keyboards.
Usually, music for two pianos is played
with the pianists facing each other across
the bodies of their instruments. Lucille
Chung and Gloria Chien sat side by side
instead. This didnt impede the tone of
Chiens piano, hidden behind the raised lid
of Chungs, and it must have contributed to
the excellent coordination between the
pianists in a work which usually lends
itself to sloppiness and garrulousness.

Birbiglia gives improv its first close-up on the big screen

By Jake Coyle

NEW YORK Good improv is like a

magic act, conjured out of thin air. A handful
of people step onto the stage with nothing
prepared, and poof! an hour of laughs
tumbles forth from unpredictable, off-thecuff scenarios.
No other type of comedy has grown more
in the last decade, and now, the burgeoning
scene has its first movie. Mike Birbiglias
Dont Think Twice lovingly dramatizes

bob and weave like featherweight boxers on
stage and off it navigate painfully disparate
opportunities in show business.
One night my wife said to me after an
improv show: Everyones kind of equally
talented but that persons on SNL and that
persons a movie star and that person lives
on an air mattress in Queens, Birbiglia
says in an interview. That really knocked
me out. In some ways, improv is this great
metaphor for life. Life isnt fair.
Birbiglia started in improv and still frequently performs it. But he found his footing in stand-up and one-man, off-Broadway
shows that marry comedy and storytelling.
After his first directorial effort, Sleepwalk
With Me (adapted from one of those
shows), he became interested in a story
about the close-knit friendship of a troupe
predicated on supporting each other, even
while jealousies fester.
Yes, and ... to positively contribute
to a fellow performers ad lib is the foundational principle of long-form improvisation comedy, as passed down from guru Del
Close. Its taught in improv hubs like the
UCB Theatre, Second City and the
Groundlings, not to mention more than a
hundred other theaters that have sprung up
nationwide in the last decade.
For his fictional troupe, the Commune,
Birbiglia assembled a group of veteran
players from such theaters (Keegan-Michael
Key, Chris Gethard, Tami Sagher) and actors

In comedy, there really are only so many

jobs. And not everyone gets to have one of
those jobs, Gethard says. In New York,
SNL is absolutely one of those gigs that
when youre starting out as a comedian in
the trenches, everyone kind of has it in the

street. If youre at UCB, youre 20 blocks
away from Rockefeller Center.
The tantalizing nearness of such breaks is
something Dont Think Twice delves into
most movingly through Jacobs character.
An audition for an SNL-like show (Seth
Barrish plays a not very flattering version
of Lorne Michaels) sends her character into
a kind of crisis both out of fear for such a
bright spotlight and out of loyalty to the
purity of improv.
I felt different ways at different points
shooting it, Jacobs says. I do like Mikes
thought in this film which is that success
means different things to different people.
Birbiglia, 38, has his own history in
detouring from the most sought-after paths
to show-business success. Eight years ago,
he thought a CBS pilot was his big ticket.
When it didnt get picked up, he instead
carved out his own idiosyncratic career.
At the time, I thought: This is my dream
come true. Its all going to happen, he
says. I feel like the fact that I didnt get

Though Armstrong spoke to numerous

new light they shed is limited. The book did

other published comments and the aforementioned litany of easily available sources.

Couldnt the author even track down more
members of the fascinating parade of ancillary characters who might offer some new
stories? Not Jerry Stiller, who played George
Costanzas father? Not Wayne Knight, of
Newman fame? Not the actors behind David
Puddy or J. Peterman or Susan Ross?
Its not that interesting threads are completely missing from Seinfeldia. We learn
of a scrapped episode in which Elaine
weighed buying a handgun, of Richards
aloofness on the set and of a York
Peppermint Pattie standing in as the famed
airborne Junior Mint to make sure the camera
could easily track it.
Those glimpses are few. Deep into the
book, in a chapter examining whether a
Seinfeld curse doomed the cast from replicating their success, youll find a telling
quote from Jason Alexander. The presence of
a curse has easily been dispelled by the successes of Veep, Curb and Comedians in
Cars, but Alexanders words could easily
apply to Armstrongs attempt. The problem
with Seinfeld, he says, is that measuring up
is no easy standard.

cannot afford to get behind because if you
start getting behind then everything falls
apart. So, were on a very tight schedule

But this parody of a lavish life of irresponsibility and consumption doesnt mean
what it did when Ab Fab first hit in the

obviously ridiculous, Eddy and Patsys

years ago, actor and playwright Dan Hoyle
set off to look for the United States that
exists between the coasts and outside the
big cities. He returned to tell the tale with
The Real Americans, a series of quick
sketches of the people he met on his journey through small towns and rural byways.
The show was wildly popular around the
country and Hoyle now returns with an
update, examining a fractured population
during a tumultuous presidential election
year. Hoyles vocal and physical pliability
serve him well as he morphs not only into
rural fundamentalists, Vietnam veterans and
garage mechanics, but also into the spaced
out San Francisco inhabitants who serve as
his social network and peanut gallery.
Hoyles cultural commentary is pointed

being caricatures. Written and performed by

amazing beests walk a wandering, windblown line between art and engineering,
mechanics and biology. Physicist-turnedartist Jansen has been creating strandbeests
since 1990. Intricately designed and assembled, Jansens self-propelled creatures have
evolved over the years, becoming increasingly complex and lifelike, with specialized adaptations to help them survive in
their seaside environment. On tour for the

should decide on an effort to do away
with Measure T, the ordinance passed
by voters in 1988 disallowing rent control, and replace it with mandates guaranteeing just cause eviction protections, rent stabilization as well as relocation assistance requirements for displaced.
Cynthia Cornell, president of the
renters advocacy group though, said
her organization has hired its own
attorney to fight in favor of the initiative qualifying for the ballot, and is certain their cause will succeed.
We are confident we can prevail over
any kind of argument, she said.
An attorney hired by the apartment
association filed a letter last month
claiming the advocacy groups effort
was illegitimate, as the petition did not
include the full text of Measure T,

said of the apartment associations
Cornell, who has long fought against
what she called unfair and unsustainable
rent hikes as well as unjust evictions in
Burlingame, celebrated collecting
enough signatures to give voters a
chance to cast their vote on the politically-charged issue.
It feels fantastic, she said. You
cant understand how much work this is
until you do it. And it feels great that
democracy and grassroots efforts still
Cornell said she and her colleagues
spent countless hours in Burlingame
collecting support from residents,
resulting in more than 3,000 signatures
delivered to City Clerk Meaghan
Hassel-Shearer earlier this month.
Should the Burlingame effort qualify
for the ballot, it would join similar initiatives in San Mateo, Mountain View
and Alameda going before voters in the

presidential election.
If approved, Burlingame landlords
would not be allowed to increase rents
at a rate higher than the rate of inflation, which is typically around 2 percent annually, and they would also be
required to offer displaced tenants three
months worth of rent payments that
could be spent toward finding another
place to live. Tenants facing being
forced out by a property owner would be
granted greater power under the implementation of just cause eviction policies as well.
Opponents though claim the effort is
too far-reaching and violates the rights
of property owners who deserve to manage their land as they best see fit.
But the rise in amount of residents
priced out of living in Burlingame due
to severe rent hikes or sudden evictions
has made it necessary for renters rights
regulations to be imposed, and the
existing rent control prohibition to be
removed, said Cornell.
It will stabilize the community in
Burlingame it will keep essential
workers here and seniors will have the
protections they so desperately need,
said Cornell.
As she expects the measure to qualify

before their goal is accomplished.
We have a lot of work ahead of us to
get the message out to voters that this
is the right thing to vote for, she said.

We are looking at everything, said
Fire crews responded to the fouralarm fire at the Millbrae Community
Center, at 477 Lincoln Circle, early
Thursday morning to find the facility
ablaze. No one was injured, but the
building was lost as firefighters struggled to dampen the flames, due in part
to material used for acoustics in the
buildings ceiling which cramped attic
spaces and presented difficulties
accessing the fires source, said
The total value lost in the fire is yet
to be determined, according to
Kammeyer, but the U.S. Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
Explosives was brought in to help
investigate, as the worth of the building is greater than $1 million.
The facility was insured under a policy offered by the Association of Bay
Area Governments, said Raines, and
city officials met with insurance agents
Friday, July 22, to discuss next steps
for cost recovery.
During the Friday morning community meeting, many residents posed
questions regarding temporary locations for the variety of programs formerly held at the community center,
while some expressed concerns about
the safety of other Millbrae landmarks.
John Muniz, president of the

Millbrae Historical Society, said the

possibility of arson made him fearful
of a potential similar threat to the
Millbrae Museum, at 420 Poplar Ave.
Im very concerned in light of the
fact arson has been suspected at the rec
center, he said. The museum is totally made out of wood. It would go up in
10 minutes, I guarantee you and it
would be a great loss to this community.
Following the meeting, Muniz said
the loss of the recreation facility was a
tremendous hurdle for the community
to overcome.
Its a terrible situation, he said.
Officials will spend the weekend and
following days establishing a site to
host meeting places for other community grounds, said Oliva.
We are trying to relocate as many
programs as possible, she said.
Looking ahead, Oliva reiterated the
commitment of officials and residents
toward working together in rebounding
from the blow dealt by the loss of the
community center.
Were going to rebuild the building
located in, and known as, the center of
our city, she said.
