Rent control heads to council
Burlingame, San Mateo officials to vote on placing initiatives on fall ballot
By Austin Walsh

The fate of a ballot initiative to
repeal the ordinance preventing
rent control in Burlingame and
replace it with a variety of tenant
protections rests in the hands of
city officials, who will vote
Monday, Aug. 1, on floating the

proposal to voters in the fall election.
The Burlingame City Council is
set to decide during a special meeting whether residents will vote on
a proposal aiming to do away with
Measure T, the city’s current rent
control prohibition, and instead
implement new policies limiting
the power of landlords.

The initiative is a part of a larger effort to install policies protecting residents in some
Peninsula cities from rent hikes
which advocates claim are unjust
and too costly. The San Mateo
City Council is also scheduled
Monday to decide whether a ballot
measure establishing rent control
and just cause eviction provisions

meant to protect law-abiding tenants will go before voters on
Election Day, Nov. 8. Both were
the result of a signature-gathering
effort by advocates and the councils must vote to place the measures on the ballot.
Though a legal challenge by
opponents of the Burlingame
effort has been placed in front of

the initiative, a report authored by
City Attorney Kathleen Kane indicates the process leading toward
bringing the rent control proposal to voters was likely sound.

submitted to the City Clerk here

Executive director Terri Boesch, left, claims the demand for food distributed at CALL Primrose in Burlingame has
increased substantially as the cost of living along the Peninsula continues to rise.

Answering the call for help
Burlingame organization offers groceries to locals battling affordability crisis
By Austin Walsh

Work from a small building on
the outskirts of downtown
Burlingame makes a big difference
for those who need additional
assistance making ends meet
amidst the tough times brought on
by the climbing cost of living
For more than three decades, residents have been able to lean on
the services offered by CALL
Primrose, 139 Primrose Road, to
take home free bags of groceries
and additional products when
money gets tight.
But as the affordability crisis

worsens along the Peninsula,
more residents than ever before
have come to depend on the offerings available from the unassuming former home turned food distribution center, said Terri Boesch,
the organization’s executive director.
About 40,000 pounds of food
will be distributed out of the
roughly 1,000-square-foot center
this year to residents from San
Bruno, Millbrae, Burlingame, San
Mateo, Foster City, Hillsborough,
Belmont and San Carlos, said
Boesch, about double the amount
served when she began working
with the organization nearly six
years ago.

Many of the nearly 1,000 residents who frequent the center commonly face the daunting decision
of spending their limited resources
on either food or rent, so Boesch
said her goal is to reduce such a
heavy burden by making meals
readily available.
“This is our way of helping with
the housing crisis,” she said, as
those who take home groceries are
subsequently able to spend their
money to ensure their living situation is as stable as possible.
About 90 percent of those who
depend on CALL Primrose for food
are renters, about 3 percent are

Construction begins on coastside library
Half Moon Bay, county celebrate groundbreaking of $23 million facility
By Samantha Weigel


Police reports
Terracotta calm down
A woman was smashing plant pots in
the street on Carlos Avenue in Redwood
City before 1:46 a.m. Tuesday, July 26.


Coastside, county and state officials gathered with an elated crowd Friday to break
ground on a new state-of-the-art high-tech
library in downtown Half Moon Bay.
The city and county Board of Supervisors
have partnered to replace the small 40-yearold facility with a $23 million, 22,000square-foot community centerpiece that will
also be the first net-zero energy efficient
building in San Mateo County.
“For four decades there was not a major
infrastructure project in Half Moon Bay. It
took collaboration to make this happen and
this I think is the most important thing
we’re doing in our community in recent
times,” said Half Moon Bay Mayor Rick
Kowalczyk. “This is a resource and a tool for
our youth, for our seniors, for everybody
who lives here, to have access to information and technology.”
Through the county’s Library Joint
Powers Authority, the city will be splitting
the cost of the project that’s expected to
support thousands of residents who live in
10 unincorporated communities along of
the coast.
Funding lined up after the county agreed to
give Half Moon Bay a no-interest $6 million loan earlier this year and officials were
eager Friday to break ground on the estimated two-year project designed by architect
Noll & Tam.
“We wanted to make sure this community
got the best possible library that you could
get,” said Supervisor Don Horsley, whose
district covers the coastside. “We are going
to get a fabulous library that’s really going
to be transformational.”
Assemblyman Rich Gordon, D-Menlo
Park, was working as a county supervisor
when the library JPA was first formed and
was pleased to celebrate the project that’s
blossomed out of partnerships initiated
more than a decade ago.
“Families will be able to come and instill
a value for lifelong learning. Knowing how
critical the tools that will be here, in the
books and in the digital media, will be to
helping children value and understand that
our ability to learn never ends, and it begins
with an ability to read,” Gordon said. “This
building will be an incredible place for the
future, for the future of this community and
its children, so I am honored and privileged
to be here today to help celebrate this new
beginning for lifelong learning in Half
Moon Bay.”
The new facility will include digital
resources, a computer lab, maker space,
community rooms and more. Nestled along
Correas Street near the city’s middle school,
the community’s needs have changed over
the years, said Councilwoman Marina
Fraser, who was instrumental in advocating
for the city’s no-interest loan from the
Fraser and Kowalczyk were excited to welcome Al Adreveno, who served as mayor in
1971 when the existing library first
opened, at Friday’s ceremony.
“It takes all of you, it takes everyone, it
takes councils past and present to make
those crucial decisions,” Fraser said. “And it
takes great partnerships and leadership with
the county.”

Around the state
California offers 12
percent to largest state employee union
SACRAMENTO — California has offered its largest state
employee union a nearly 12 percent salary increase over
four years.
The Sacramento Bee reports the July 8 proposal comes in
contract talks between Gov. Jerry Brown’s office and
Service Employee International Union 1000 officials. It
includes another option of a 9 percent increase over three
The offer would boost payments to post-retirement health
benefits by 3.5 percent over either three or four years.
Union officials said June 30 talks had reached a “crossroads.” A previous update expressed dissatisfaction with a
10 percent increase over four years.
The union that represents 95,000 state employees has
been seeking a 22 percent increase over four years.


BIG SUR — Lodge managers and cafe
owners along California’s dramatic Big
Sur coast were looking Friday at a summer of jittery guests and cancelled
bookings after fire officials warned
that crews will likely be battling a
wildfire raging in steep, forested ridges
just to the north for another month.
Big Sur establishments were already
reporting as much as a 50 percent drop
in business, said Stan Russell, executive director of the chamber of commerce. That’s even though the only
signs of the blaze were fire trucks and
an occasional whiff of smoke along the
famously winding and scenic Highway
Normally, this time of year “is when
everybody really runs at 100 percent,”
Russell said about tourism in the area.
“This is when we make our money.”
The week-old blaze a few miles north

of Big Sur had been blamed for one
death, that of a bulldozer operator
working the fire line. The fire has
destroyed 41 homes and burned 48
square miles (124 square kilometers).
Flames were concentrated in forested
ridges above the summer fog line along
the coast. Many patches of fire were in
areas too steep to be reached, the
California Department of Forestry and
Fire Protection said.
More than 4,200 firefighters were
battling the wildfire that officials
expect to linger until the end of August.
Highway 1 remained open, but signs
along the narrow route warned travelers
that all state parks in the area were
closed because of the fire.
At the luxury Post Ranch Inn, where
clifftop rooms that open to sweeping
views of the Pacific Ocean go for more
than $2,000 a night, general manager
Kevin Geanides was offering refunds to
guests canceling stays because of the
wildfire. Business was off about onefourth, he estimated.

Smoke was thick along the Big Sur
coast for the first days of the blaze.
With a shift in the wind, “the past few
days, if you were standing on our ridge,
you wouldn’t even know there was a
fire,” Geanides said. Other residents
and travelers agreed.
Hotel workers reviewed emergency
evacuation plans as a precaution,
despite the blue skies along the coast.
Fire officials earlier in the week
ordered at least 350 residents to leave
homes that were much closer to the
Keith Bispo of the hard-hit Palo
Colorado community of Big Sur defied
the evacuation order, even though his
wife, 1-year-old child, five dogs and
two cats pulled out.
On Friday, Bispo’s house still stood.
Many of his neighbors’ homes were
“I wanted to stay here, and if it was
going to burn, I was going to watch it
burn,” Bispo said. “I was going to do
everything I can to stop it.”

SAN FRANCISCO — The late gay rights leader Harvey
Milk already has schools, streets and parks named in his
honor. Soon, a U. S. Navy ship will
join the list.
A Navy official said Friday that Navy
Congress earlier this month that a new
fleet of replenishment oilers being
built in San Diego will be named for
Milk and five other civil and human
rights icons.
The official spoke on the condition
Harvey Milk
of anonymity because a public
announcement is expected in the near future.
More than two decades before he became one of the
first openly gay candidates elected to public office, Milk
spent four years in the Navy, first as an enlisted man and
then as an officer in San Diego.
He was serving on the San Francisco Board of
Supervisors when a former political colleague assassinated him and Mayor George Moscone at City Hall in
The GLBT Historic Task Force of San Diego County and
former U. S. Rep. Bob Filner wrote Mabus in 2012 to suggest Milk as a fitting subject for a ship name tribute.
The news that Mabus had granted the request first was
reported Thursday by U. S. Naval Institute News.
The other ship name honorees include abolitionist
Sojourner Truth, Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl
Warren, Robert F. Kennedy, suffragist Lucy Stone and
Georgia Congressman John Lewis.
In announcing that the first new oiler would bear
Lewis’ name, Mabus said in January “I name ships for
people and places that represent our highest values, the
things we cherish the most. ”

Tesla looking at cameras
and radar in Florida crash
By Tom Krisher


A police SWAT team surround a home as they search for a second suspect after a San Diego
police officer was fatally shot and another was wounded late on Thursday.

DETROIT — Tesla engineers told members of a Senate committee they are looking
into the role cameras and radar played in the
fatal crash of a Model S using self-driving
mode, according to two people familiar with
a meeting held Thursday.
The engineers have two main theories, the
people said. Either the car’s cameras and
radar failed to spot a crossing tractor-trailer.
Or the cameras didn’t see the rig and the car’s
computer thought the radar signal was false,
possibly from an overpass or sign.
Tesla officials disclosed these theories to
U. S. Senate Commerce Committee staff
members during an hour-long meeting, said
the people, who didn’t want to be identified
because the meeting was private. The meeting came at the request of Committee
Chairman Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., whose
committee oversees transportation and
could hold a hearing on self-driving tech-

nology at a later date.
The driver of the Model S, Joshua Brown
of Canton, Ohio, was killed when the sedan
hit the side of a tractor-trailer while traveling nine mph above the speed limit on a
highway near Gainesville, Florida, federal
accident investigators have said. The
Administration, which is investigating the
May 7 crash, has said that the car’s
Autopilot system was engaged.
Brown, 40, a tech company owner, was
using the car’s automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping features at the time, a
report from the National Transportation
Safety Board said. Those features are part of
the vehicle’s Autopilot system.
The Tesla struck the underside of the
truck’s 53-foot semitrailer at a 90-degree
angle, shearing off the sedan’s roof before it
emerged on the other side of the trailer,
according to the report. The truck was making a left turn on a highway that allows
cross traffic.

Two San Diego police officers
shot, one fatally, during stop Mosquitoes now spreading Zika in U.S.

By Elliott Spagat and Julie Watson

SAN DIEGO — Two San Diego police officers were shot — one fatally — after a latenight stop turned into a gunfight, triggering a manhunt that led to the capture of one
wounded suspect in a ravine and an hourslong SWAT standoff Friday that ended after
officers detained a second man who may
have been involved.
The shooting came as departments around
the country are on high alert following the
killing of officers in Dallas and Baton
Rouge, Louisiana, this month. San Diego
Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said it was
unknown whether the San Diego attack was
The chain of events unfolded over more
than 12 hours in a blue-collar area of southeastern San Diego with modest single-story
homes and streets lined with palm trees.
It started about 11 p.m. Thursday when
two veteran gang unit officers in bulletproof
vests stopped a person on a street. Almost
immediately a shootout ensued and the officers called for backup.
Authorities initially said the officers made
a traffic stop involving a motorist, but clarified later that they were still trying to determine whether it was a traffic stop or a stop
to check out a pedestrian.
“It happened extremely quickly,” Police
Chief Shelley Zimmerman said. “From the
information that was put out that a stop was

being made to that the officers called for
emergency cover to when the other officers
arrived on scene, we’re talking very, very
quickly. Seconds to a minute or so.”
Jonathan DeGuzman, a 16-year veteran of
the force who was married with two children,
suffered multiple gunshot wounds. The 43year-old died at Scripps Mercy Hospital after
doctors’ efforts to save him failed.
Wade Irwin, 32, underwent surgery after
being shot and was expected to survive,
Zimmerman said. His wife was at his side
during surgery.
Police swarmed the neighborhood where
the shootout happened and quickly captured
52-year-old Jesse Gomez in a nearby ravine,
Zimmerman said. He was in critical condition Friday with a gunshot wound but was
expected to survive. Police gave no further
information about Gomez or his role in the
shootout except to say he was a suspect.
During the search for a second man
described as a “potential” suspect, residents
were ordered to stay in their homes throughout the night as San Diego police and officers from other law enforcement agencies
scoured yards, streets and alleys. A helicopter hovered over the neighborhood.
About nine hours after the shootout, heavily armed officers surrounded a house about a
half-mile (about 1 kilometer) away, one of
them using a loudspeaker to urge a man to
surrender. Authorities also detonated several
devices at the scene to draw him out and used
tools to break windows and pound on the

New Sandy Hook school opens
nearly four years after massacre
By Pat Eaton-Robb

NEWTOWN, Conn. — The new Sandy
Hook Elementary School, built to replace
the one demolished after a massacre that
took the lives of 20 children and six educators, features three courtyards, study spaces
designed to look like treehouses and a
moat-like raingarden.
Still, many would give anything to have
the old building back.
“But, let me state unequivocally that we
would trade in a minute this beautiful new
school for the more familiar and ancient
Sandy Hook school, built in the ’50s, if we
could just change the past,” said Pat Llodra,
the town’s first selectman.
The new 86, 000-square-foot school
opened Friday for the first time to the media
and the general public, containing no obvious memorials to the 26 people who died in
December 2012, but officials said it was
created with them in mind.
The $50 million replacement was built on
the same property but not in the old footprint. All that remains are two large con-

crete slabs containing dinosaur footprints
that also sat outside the old building.
Local officials hope allowing people to
take a look this week will make for a
“quiet, respectful, and appropriate opening” on Aug. 29, Superintendent Joseph
Erardi said.
Melisa Horan found touring the new
school with her now sixth-grade son cathartic. He has aged out of the prekindergartento-fourth-grade school but wanted to see the
replacement for his old school.
“Once you got down to where the driveway opened up, there was a whole different
feeling, at least for me,” Horan said. “It was
done so respectfully and so tastefully. And
the kids we toured with who are going there
were just so excited to be there.”
Architects and engineers held seven
workshops to gather community input,
including “Kids Build” sessions with the
students, whose drawings can be seen on
the flags that line the driveway.
“These people had their hearts ripped out.
It was important to listen to them,” said
Julia McFadden, an architect with Svigals +
Partners and the project manager.

MIAMI — Mosquitoes have apparently
begun spreading the Zika virus on the U.S.
mainland for the first time, health officials
said Friday, a long-feared turn in the epidemic
that is sweeping Latin America and the
Four recently infected people in the Miami
area — one woman and three men — are
believed to have contracted the virus locally
through mosquito bites, Gov. Rick Scott said.
No mosquitoes in Florida have actually
been found to be carrying Zika, despite the
testing of 19,000 by the state lab. But other
methods of Zika transmission, such as travel
to a stricken country or sex with an infected

person, have been ruled out.
“Zika is now here,” said Dr. Thomas
Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.
Still, U.S. health officials said they do not
expect widespread outbreaks in this country
like those seen in Brazil, in part because of
better sanitation, better mosquito control and
wider use of window screens and air conditioners.
The virus has triggered alarm across the
Western Hemisphere’s warmer latitudes.
While most people who get Zika don’t even
know they are sick, infection during pregnancy can cause severe brain-related birth defects,
including disastrously small heads.

Trump transition
tests outsider’s
governing ability
By Steve Peoples

WASHINGTON — His status as a
presidential nominee barely a
week old, Donald Trump is already
tasked with assembling a complex
transition team capable of hiring
thousands of high-level government officials and crafting a
detailed policy agenda should he
win the presidency.
It’s a herculean task that will
test the limits of Trump in particular, a political outsider who, thus
far, has struggled to attract experienced talent to his presidential
campaign. Experienced officials
warn that the safety and economic
security of the nation depends on
both White House contenders
aggressively preparing for the
transition to a new presidency in
the coming weeks, even as they
intensify their political operations for the three-month sprint to
Election Day.
The New York billionaire has
shrugged off recent political stumbles that were created, in large
part, by extraordinary understaffing and inexperience within
his bare bones organization. Yet
there is less room for error as the
responsibility shifts from winning an election to governing the
world’s most powerful nation.
“If you aren’t preparing, then
the American public should be
concerned about whether you’re fit
to lead, ” said Partnership for
Public Service CEO Max Stier,
who is helping both campaigns
with transition planning through
the non-profit’s Center for

Presidential Transition. “The
point of maximum vulnerability
is when there is that handoff of

Friday that chief of staff Denis
McDonough informed the campaigns that Trump and Clinton are
now eligible to receive intelligence briefings from the government. McDonough said senior
White House officials will be in
touch with both campaigns in the
coming weeks.
Trump has entrusted much of the
transition planning to New Jersey
Gov. Chris Christie, his transition chairman, along with two
longtime Christie loyalists,
fundraising chief Bill Palatucci
and former chief of staff Rich
Bagger. Trump’s son-in-law Jared
Kushner, a real estate developer, is
also playing an active role along
with Jamie Burke, who played a
senior role in Mitt Romney’s transition team four years ago.
Trump’s team has identified
experts in major policy areas such
as foreign affairs, national security and economic affairs to help
build out the transition, but those
familiar with preparations to date
describe them as preliminary at

about his transition planning.
Brian Murray, a spokesman for
Christie, said the governor is “just
too focused on his job as chairman
of the transition team to engage in
press interviews right now.”
The experience of past candidates — and Trump’s struggles
with his own campaign — suggests that the Republican nominee has a lot of work to do.
Romney’s 2012 team, dubbed
the Romney Readiness Project,
had 495 people working for the
transition effort before Election
Day and another 165 identified to
join had he won the election,
according to Stier’s office. Ahead
of the 2009 presidential inauguration, the Obama-Biden Transition
Project had more than 600 staff
dedicated to the transition.

Donald Trump speech beat out
Hillary Clinton in TV viewership
By David Bauder

NEW YORK — Donald Trump pulled off
the upset — at least in television popularity.
Hillary Clinton’s acceptance speech at the
Democratic National Convention was seen
by 29.8 million people on the commercial
networks, the Nielsen company said Friday.
That fell short of the 32.2 million people
who watched Trump speak to the
Republicans a week before.
Trump, who used to carefully watch television ratings during his days as star of “The
Apprentice,” immediately boasted about the
victory during a campaign appearance
Friday in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
“We beat her by millions on television.
Millions!” he said. “Honestly, the numbers
were incredible.”
Although Trump has been a proven ratings draw throughout his campaign, the
Democratic convention had proven more
popular with viewers than the Republicans
for its first three nights. Stars like Alicia
Keys, Katy Perry, Lenny Kravitz and Paul
Simon performed for the Democrats, and
President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle
Obama and former President Bill Clinton
showed off their oratorical skills.
Meanwhile, star power was much dimmer
at the Republican meeting. One night, the
convention even ended 15 minutes earlier
than planned, leaving television networks
scrambling to fill time.

But viewers turned up to hear Trump: his
audience was watched by 9 million more
people than it was for any other night of the
Republican convention, Nielsen said.
Meanwhile, the Democrats actually had
slightly more viewers for the first night of
its convention than it did for the nominee’s
speech, typically the highest-rated night of
convention coverage.
Four years ago, the audience for Obama’s
acceptance speech was 35.7 million, while
30.2 million saw Republican challenger
Mitt Romney.
Nielsen’s count did not include PBS’ commercial-free coverage, which made the margin closer. PBS said its viewership for
Clinton’s speech was 3.91 million people,
and 2.75 million the week earlier for Trump.
Fox News Channel went from first to
worst during a tumultuous two weeks that
included the resignation of its chief executive, Roger Ailes, on the day Trump spoke.
An estimated 9.4 million people watched
Trump on Fox, the most popular network for
Republicans, and Fox took out newspaper
ads touting its first-place finish among
those covering the convention.
Just over 3 million people watched
Clinton on Fox. Perhaps sensing its audience’s level of interest, Fox showed fewer
live events from the convention floor than
its rivals, preferring discussions hosted by
anchors Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly.
Sean Hannity was brought in for analysis
immediately after the convention closed
each night.

70 people on the payroll and
another few dozen consultants at
the end of June, according to
Federal Election Commission filings.
The goal is to create “a miniature federal government,” said former Utah Gov. Michael Leavitt,
who led Romney’s transition team
four years ago and is informally
advising Trump.
There are just 73 days between
the Nov. 8 election and the Jan.
20, 2017 inauguration when the
new presidential takes over.
Without a running start, Leavitt
says that’s simply not enough
time to appoint roughly 4,000
personnel that occupy senior
roles in government departments
— State, Defense, Homeland
Security, Commerce, and Treasury
among them — many requiring
multiple security reviews or
Senate confirmation.

“This is a responsibility of a
candidacy, ” Leavitt said. “You
can’t transition power in the most
important government in the
world in 73 days.”
Like Stier, Leavitt noted that the
nation is often most vulnerable
during periods of transition. The
1993 siege in Waco, Texas, the
Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks
and the 2008 economic meltdown
all occurred within months of a
new president taking over.
Beyond staffing key government agencies, the transition
team is also charged with preparing to execute the new president’s
policy prescriptions.
Four years ago, Leavitt’s team
crafted a detailed plan for
Romney’s first 200 days in office,
which included prospective executive orders and legislation based
on the candidate’s policy promises on the campaign trail.

Clinton roars against Trump
as a hacking distraction arises
By Lisa Lerer and Jonathan Lemire

PHILADELPHIA — Fresh off a spirited
convention, Hillary Clinton told prospective voters Friday they face a “stark choice”
in November and pressed ahead with the
scalding rhetoric against her Republican
rival that marked many of the speeches in
Philadelphia. Another distraction arose,
however, as her aides acknowledged that a
hacking attack that exposed Democratic
Party emails also reached into a computer
system used by her own campaign.
Rallying in Colorado, Donald Trump
denounced Clinton’s convention speech as
“full of lies” and said he’s starting to agree
with those calling for Clinton to be locked
Not long after, the intrusion into a system used by the Clinton campaign came to
light, first reported by Reuters. The FBI said
it was working to determine the “accuracy,
nature and scope” of the cyberattacks.
Campaign spokesman Nick Merrill said the
newly disclosed breach affected a
Democratic National Committee voter
analysis program used by the campaign and
other organizations. The hackers had access
to the program for about five days.
Merrill said outside experts found no evidence that the campaign’s “internal systems have been compromised” but gave no
detail on the program or nature of the
attacks. President Barack Obama and cybersecurity experts have said Russia was
almost certainly responsible for the DNC
hack, and the House Democratic campaign

“Remember this, ” he said, “Trump is

the first time he encouraged his crowd’s
anti-Clinton chants of “lock her up.”
“I’ve been saying let’s just beat her on
Nov. 8,” he said, “but you know what? I’m
starting to agree with you.”
Polls find that most Americans question
Clinton’s honesty. But in her convention

Computer service
used by Clinton
campaign hacked
By Alan Fram

WASHINGTON — A computer service used by the campaign of Hillary Clinton was hacked as part of a broader
breach of the Democratic National Committee, an intrusion
for which the Russian government is the leading suspect,
the campaign said Friday.
The breach affected a DNC data analytics program used by
the campaign and a number of other organizations, according to the campaign. It said outside security experts reviewing the campaign’s computer system have found “no evidence that our internal systems have been compromised.”
The hackers had access to the program, which is used to
conduct voter analysis, for about five days. It did not
include Social Security numbers or credit card information,
a campaign aide said.
The campaign did not specify what types of data the service was analyzing, but partnerships with modern e-commerce companies can allow sophisticated tracking, categorization and identification of website visitors. This can
help organizations tailor their online content, advertising
and solicitations to be more effective.
The announcement comes as the FBI investigates a hack
at the DNC that resulted in the posting last week of embarrassing internal communications on WikiLeaks, and a similar intrusion of the House Democratic Congressional
Campaign Committee. President Barack Obama has said
Russia was almost certainly responsible for the DNC hack,
an assertion with which cybersecurity experts have agreed.
The FBI said Friday it was aware of “media reporting on
cyber intrusions involving multiple political entities, and
is working to determine the accuracy, nature and scope of
these matters.” The intrusions have added another layer of
mystery to the hacking of Democratic Party information
that has been revealed in the heat of this year’s presidential
and congressional elections.
The DNC breach led to the release by WikiLeaks on July
22, days before the Democratic national convention began,
of 19,000 emails showing that supposedly neutral party
officials were favoring Hillary Clinton over Sen. Bernie
Sanders during their primary contest for the presidential

Stocks mostly higher, helped by tech, oil
By Ken Sweet



NEW YORK — Stocks ended
slightly higher on Friday, helped
by better-than-expected quarterly
results from Google’s parent
Alphabet and retailer Amazon and
a modest recovery in oil prices.
However, the gains were held
back by disappointing results
from Exxon Mobil as well as news
out of the Bank of Japan, which
did not announce as much stimulus
as many had hoped.
The Dow Jones industrial average closed down 24.11 points, or
0.1 percent, to 18,432.24.
The Dow was held back partly
by a drop in the oil giant Exxon
Mobil. The company reported its
smallest quarterly profit in 17
years, well below what analysts
were looking for, due to the continuing weakness in oil prices. Its
major competitor, Chevron, fared
slightly better. While earnings
dropped sharply from a year ago,
Chevron’s results still beat analysts’ expectations.
Exxon fell $1.25, or 1.4 percent, to $88.95. Chevron climbed
69 cents, or 0. 7 percent, to
$102.48 after being down earlier




in the day.
Broader market indicators ended
higher. The Standard & Poor’s 500
index rose 3.54 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,173.60 and the Nasdaq
composite increased 7.15 points,
or 0.1 percent, to 5,162.13.
Wall Street is finishing out its
busiest week of corporate earnings, which was dominated by
mostly strong results from technology companies including

($104 billion) takeover offer, clearing the
way for a shareholder vote on the mega-deal.
The decision comes as some SABMiller
shareholders were seeking a better offer after
the value of the pound dropped more than 10
percent since Britain voted last month to
leave the European Union.
The pound’s drop means that the majority
of SABMiller’s shareholders have seen the
value of their deal drop when compared with
the offer of cash and AB InBev shares that is
being offered to SABMiller’s top two shareholders.
Those two shareholders — U.S. tobacco
company Altria and investment firm BevCo
— had arranged for that special offer because
they wanted to remain invested in the new

U.S. GDP grows a weak 1.2
percent in second quarter
By Martin Crutsinger

WASHINGTON — Growth in the U.S.
economy was sluggish again in the spring,
dashing expectations for a robust rebound
after a tough winter. Stronger consumer
spending was offset by weakness in housing
construction and a big slowdown in the pace
that businesses restocked store shelves.
The Commerce Department said Friday
that the gross domestic product — the
broadest measure of the economy — grew at
a 1.2 percent annual rate in the April-June
quarter. That was far below the 2.6 percent
GDP growth rate that economists had been
The government also revised down its
estimate of first-quarter growth to 0.8 percent from 1.1 percent. The economy has
now grown at lackluster rates for three
straight quarters.
Despite the worse-than-expected performance in the second quarter, analysts said
they remained hopeful that the economy
will rebound in the second half of this year

as some of the headwinds start to abate.
Analysts said that businesses will likely
ramp up inventories in the coming months.
Still, the weakness in the first and second
quarters prompted analysts to trim their
forecasts for total growth in 2016.
Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist at
Capital Economics, revised his GDP forecast for this year from 2 percent down to 1.5
percent, which would be the weakest showing since the economy contracted by 2.8
percent in 2009 as the country was struggling with a deep recession.
The government, in its annual revision of
GDP released Friday, boosted its growth
reading for 2015 to 2.6 percent, up from its
previous estimate of 2.4 percent.
Analysts said the disappointing second
quarter GDP report would likely give the
Federal Reserve pause about raising rates as
soon as September.
“The ongoing softness of growth in the
second quarter will no doubt add to calls for
policymakers to err on the side of caution
and as such greatly reduces the chance of any
rate hike before December, ” said Chris
Williamson, an analyst with IHS Markit.

Cheaper oil sends Exxon, Chevron
to worst quarter in nearly 17 years
By David Koenig

DALLAS — Cheaper oil is leading to the
lowest summer gasoline prices in years, and
it is causing heartburn for oil companies and
their shareholders.
On Friday, Exxon Mobil Corp. reported its
smallest quarterly profit in nearly 17 years —
although it still earned $1.7 billion.
Chevron Corp. posted its biggest loss in
nearly 15 years.
The reports from the two biggest U.S. oil
companies followed weak second-quarter
results from BP and Royal Dutch Shell.
Exxon Chairman and CEO Rex Tillerson
said the results “reflect a volatile industry
The companies have slashed spending on
exploration and cut budgets to offset lower
prices, but that has yet to create a sustained
rebound in oil prices.

U.S. crude rallied from below $30 a barrel
in February to above $50 in early June. But
more recently oil prices have faded again,
with crude inventories remaining stubbornly
high and the global economy mired in a funk.
This week, U.S. oil hit a three-month low.
Production of oil in U.S. shale fields has
fallen, and wildfires in Canada and unrest in
Nigeria have also interrupted oil flows at
times this year. Still, major players like
Saudi Arabia continue to pump away.
The outlook is good for drivers, bad for
anyone working in, or investing in, the energy sector. The U.S. Energy Information
Administration forecasts that oil will average $43.57 this year and $52.15 next year.
“Oil prices shot up to $50 sooner than we
all thought,” said Brian Youngberg, an analyst with Edward Jones. “In the near term
they could fall back a little farther, but I’m
confident oil prices will be in the $50s for
most of 2017.”

Refugees run long, inspiring road to Rio

NAIROBI, Kenya — They were used to

Indians rally in seventh to beat A’s

Ex-Texas A&M linebacker,
wife killed at their home
HOUSTON — A former Texas A&M and
Miami Dolphins linebacker and his wife were
fatally shot at their home in Houston, and a
16-year-old boy has been charged as a juvenile
with murder in the slayings.
Texas A&M University identified the victims in a statement as Antonio and Dawn
Armstrong. Police said officers discovered the
wounded couple about 2 a.m. Friday. Dawn
Armstrong died at the scene, and Antonio
Armstrong was pronounced dead at Memorial
Hermann Hospital hours later with a gunshot
wound to the head.
The suspect’s identity is being withheld
because of his age.
Texas A&M issued a statement Friday saying
Antonio Armstrong was a letterman who
played for the Aggies from 1991 to 1994 and
described him as a cornerstone of the A&M
“Wrecking Crew” defense. He was named firstteam Associated Press All-America linebacker

Carr has a strong offensive line to protect
him, a 1,000-yard back in Latavius Murray
to relieve some pressure and most importantly a big-time receiver in Amari Cooper,
who caught 72 passes for 1,070 yards as a
rookie last year.
Carr has heard plenty about the hype surrounding his team as friends around the
league spent the offseason praising moves
like the additions of linebacker Bruce Irvin,
cornerback Sean Smith, safety Reggie
Nelson and guard Kelechi Osemele and told
him the Raiders are a team to be feared.
As much as he appreciates those compliments after starting his career in 2014 on an
overmatched team that lost its first 10
games and changed coaches before finishing 3-13, he mostly tunes them out.
“I put so much pressure on myself I don’t
get caught up in ‘we expect this, we expect
that,”’ Carr said. “I already expect greatness
and perfection.”
Carr said he keeps a close eye on the team
to make sure that the outside praise doesn’t
lead to complacency.
He is pleased with what he saw this offseason as players put in the same extra work
and effort they did even when the team struggled his rookie season.

The former University of Connecticut player

The move came a day after defensive tackle

Ex-NY Giant Petitgout gets

Welterweight title on the line at UFC 201
By Dan Gelston

The UFC can hang an “under new management” sign on the octagon.
The new era under the Hollywood entertainment conglomerate WME-IMG banner
kicks off Saturday with UFC 201 at Philips
Arena in Atlanta. UFC President Dana White
and the new owners have suggested little
will change immediately for the promotion.
Robbie Lawler can only hope that also
means the staus quo remains at the top of the
welterweight division.
The UFC still has plenty of buzz coming

off the landmark 200 pay-per-view, though
the aftermath has been sullied in recent
weeks by former heavyweight champion
Brock Lesnar’s failed drug tests, as well as
Jon Jones’ earlier test failure.
Holy Holm has been exposed as the next
Buster Douglas one-hit wonder more than a
true rival for Ronda Rousey. And UFC 201
almost seems like a speed bump as the promotion gears up for UFC 202 and the anticipated rematch between Nate Diaz and Conor
But looking to steal the spotlight is
Lawler, making his third title defense in a
remarkable career resurgence, this time

against Tyron Woodley. Lawler not only
defeated Rory MacDonald and Carlos Condit
in his first two defenses, he earned fight of
the night honors on both cards.
Lawler (26-10) is looking for more than
earning that title for a third straight card.
“No one ever wants fight of the night,” he
said. “Every fight, I’ve gone in I want
knockout of the night. I want to be in and
out quick. Sometimes these guys just have a
lot of grit, they’re highly trained and I just
can’t get them out of there so I get fight of
the night. So it’s not necessarily I’m changing anything. It’s like, I’m just sick of fight
of the night. I want to knock people out.”











ON CALL 24/7


Lawler and Condit established a lofty
benchmark for the best fight of 2016 with
their thrilling slugfest at UFC 195 in Las
Vegas. Lawler was awarded a narrow decision
and both fighters kept going into a brutal
fifth round in which they struggled to lift
their arms for punches or defense.
A rematch might have been the most
intriguing option for both fighters. Lawler,
who has finished 20 of 26 fighters by
knockout, instead matched up against
“This is who I’m fighting. My coaches
and guys decided who they wanted me to
fight next,” he said.

area well left of the 17th and scrambled for
par, and then his tee shot narrowly missed
its mark and found the water on the 18th,
leading to bogey.
Even so, he was tied at the halfway point
of a major.
“It’s going to be a new experience, and it
will be fun,” Walker said. “You still have to
go perform. Doesn’t matter what tournament
it is.”
Day dropped to even par with a double
bogey on No. 7, and that appeared to wake
up the world’s No. 1 player. Day went on a
tear with seven birdies over his next eight
holes, two of them from 18 feet, one of them
from 35 feet. Suddenly, he was on the verge

Not only can golfer get a chance to virtually play a course they may otherwise not have
a chance to do, but the simulator gives golfers
feedback about their swing: clubhead speed,
swing path, carry distance, whether your club
face is open or closed at impact.
The simulator also has a driving range setting as well. Nakamura believes the simulator

of a shot at 63 until he hooked his tee shot to
the base of the hospitality area on the 17th,
and pushed a driving iron into the right
rough on the 18th. He settled for pars at both
for a 65.
Day was right where he wanted to be, three
shots behind going into the weekend, his
name high on the leaderboard for everyone
to see. At stake is a chance to join Tiger
Woods as the only back-to-back PGA champions since the stroke-play era began in
Day was joined at 7-under 133 by Emiliano
Grillo, the talented young Argentine who
worked hard on his putting at Baltusrol and
watched it pay off. Grillo got this afternoon
of birdies going by making five of them in a
seven-hole stretch on the back nine until he
cooled on the front and had to settle for a 67.
This is new territory for him, too.
Just like Walker and Streb, he has never
even contended in a major.

“I’ve never been in this situation, and I’m
not afraid of it,” Grillo said. “I’m going to
go out and enjoy it.”
By the end of the day, it was easy to overlook a familiar figure — Henrik Stenson, the
British Open champion who made eagle on
the 18th at the turn and polished off another
67. He was only four shots behind in his bid
to match Ben Hogan as the only players to
win two straight majors at age 40.
Mickelson made the cut, and that might
have been the most entertaining of all.
He began his round with a tee shot so far
left that it sailed off the property, bounced
along Shunpike Road and caromed to the left
down Baltusrol Way. Wherever it finished, it
was out-of-bounds, and Mickelson had to
scramble for a triple bogey. He spent the rest
of the day battling to get back, and he delivered on the 18th with a birdie to post a 70.
“I think in the history of the PGA
Championship, that’s the worst start of any

player’s round. I’d have to look it up,”
Mickelson said.
No need to. Someone pointed out that
Nicolas Colsaerts piped two over the fence
and made 8.
“I’m having a difficult time right now
managing my expectations, because I know
how well I’m playing and I’m so result-oriented that I’m not playing very relaxed, free
golf like I did at the British, like I did in the
preparation here,” Mickelson said.
Two weeks ago at Royal Troon, where
Mickelson opened with a 63 and Stenson
close with a 63, it was just those two players
in a duel that ranked among the greatest.
At Baltusrol, a dozen players were separated by five shots going into the weekend, a
group that included Martin Kaymer (69).
Jordan Spieth was finally back in the mix, at
least on the fringes, after a hot start that led
to a 67. He was in the group six shots

their game, and ultimately that is Nakamura’s
“I wanted to build a golf facility for golfers
to get better,” Nakamura said.
The facility on South Amphlett Blvd, is
built in an old bakery that took Nakamura
over a year to renovate. But now he’s open and
trying to drive traffic to his site. In addition to
the simulator, there is a large putting green on
which to practice, a driving range net on the
back patio, as well as numerous activities for
non-golfers, or those waiting to use the simulator — including a pool table, a Golden Tee
video game and pop-a-shot basketball game.
“This kind of place doesn’t really exist out
there,” Nakamura said. “We’re hoping to book
more events because that’s the money generator.”
Nakamura offers monthly and yearly memberships, which give users a more preferred
status, but anyone can just come in off the
street, plunk down some cash and play a round

That’s what Dan Maldonado did about six
months ago and he’s hooked. Maldonado and
his buddy Evan King were engaged in playing
the back 9 of a course on the simulator.
“I’m here daily,” Maldonado said. “When I
found this place, I found it on Craigslist as I
was looking for new clubs. I call it a clubhouse. We come, hang out. We play golf,
watch the Giants game.
“I think I was here for six hours (the first
time I came in). I’m trying anything to get
better (at golf).”
King said he’s been going to Relic Golf for
about two months to get his game back in
shape. He said a friend of his is getting married and golf outings are part it.
“I’m determined not to embarrass myself,”
King said.
He said he played when he was younger, but
hadn’t touched a club in about 15 years until
the last couple of months.

Now, like Maldonado, Relic Golf has
become King’s hangout spot.
“This is my come-hang-out-and-relax place
before battling traffic home,” King said, who
works in Foster City and live in Los Altos.
Plus, there’s the fact he’s seen tremendous
improvement in his game.
And ultimately, that’s what Nakamura is trying to accomplish.
“I love meeting golfers and people in general. I was stuck in a lab all day (during my
time at Genentech). That wasn’t for me,”
Nakamura said. “I think the value of the simulator (is where it’s at). Basically, all the regulars who are average to above-average players
are getting better really quick.
“The No.1 thing that makes me happy is
seeing the regulars get better in front of my
face. And they’re hooked. They know the
value of this machine.”

Padres send Cashner to the
Marlins in seven-player deal
By Steven Wine

MIAMI — Buyers at the trade
deadline for a change, the Miami
Marlins believe they now have
enough starting pitching to make
a playoff push.
The Marlins acquired the rotation reinforcements they sought
in a trade Friday that cost them
four players.
Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea
were sent to Miami by the San
Diego Padres in the seven-player
Miami also will receive pitching prospect Tayron Guerrero and
cash for right-handers Jarred
Cosart and Carter Capps and two
minor leaguers, pitching prospect
Luis Castillo and first baseman
Josh Naylor.

that we’re trying to win,” Miami
manager Don Mattingly said.

of baseball operations Michael

30-49 with a 3.73 ERA in seven
seasons. Mattingly, former manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers,
faced the 6-foot-6 right-hander

league season, is 5-5 with a 4.98

Cashner has a $7.15 million

after this season. Rea, 26, has a
salary of $510,200 and is under
team control through 2018.
The Padres are fourth in the NL
West and looking to future seasons, and for them the prize in the
deal might be Naylor, 19, a lefthanded power hitter taken by the
Marlins in the first round of the
2015 draft. He is batting .269

Single-A Greensboro.
Cosart went 13-11 in 2014 with

Russian weightlifters banned from Rio
By Pablo Gorondi

BUDAPEST, Hungary — All of Russia’s
weightlifters were banned from the Rio
Olympics on Friday for doping for what the
international federation called “extremely
shocking” results that brought the sport
into “disrepute.”
The eight competition spots have been
offered to other countries.
Federation said the “integrity of the
weightlifting sport has been seriously damaged on multiple times and levels by the
Russians.” It said the punishment was an
“appropriate sanction” to “preserve the status of the sport.”
The IWF described the doping results as

“extremely shocking and disappointing.”
To replace the eight Russian lifters in
Rio, five countries were offered places in
the men’s competition — Belarus, Croatia,
El Salvador, Mongolia and Serbia. For the
women, Albania, Georgia and Moldova
became eligible. Because of the lateness of
the decision, the IWF said it was not clear
whether all the spots would be filled
In justifying its actions against Russia,
the IWF said retests of samples from seven
Russian weightlifters who took part in the
2008 Beijing Olympics or 2012 London
Olympics resulted in positive tests, and
more were expected.
Two female weightlifters — Tatiana
Kashirina and Anastasiia Romanova — were
withdrawn by the Russian federation for earlier doping offenses. The names of the other

banned lifters were not announced.
Four additional weightlifters were mentioned in World Anti-Doping Agency investigator Richard McLaren’s report — which
alleged a massive cover-up of failed drug
tests — as having benefited from the “disappearing positive methodology system”
used by Russia to mask doping results.
The IWF ruling took time because on
Tuesday it asked the International Olympic
Committee and WADA for “further clarification” on the recent IOC ruling giving individual sports federations the responsibility
of deciding which Russian athletes can compete in Rio.

Olympic brief
Australia evacuates Olympic
lodging after small fire
RIO DE JANEIRO — Australian Olympic
team members were forced to evacuate their
lodgings on Friday at the Rio de Janeiro
Olympics after a small fire in a basement parking area caused smoke to fill the stairwells.
Australian team spokesman Mike Tancred
said about 100 athletes and officials were evacuated from their building in the sprawling athletes’ village. The compound contains 31 buildings and will accommodate 18,000 athletes and
officials at the peak of the games, which open
in a week.
The fire will once again draw attention to
Rio’s spotty preparations, which have been
marred by the Zika virus, severe water pollution, crime, and slow ticket sales.
Tancred said team members returned to their
rooms after 30 minutes.

and women who have talent and drive, and the same dreams of
competing on the world’s largest stage as athletes from all over
the globe. But they have no way of representing their countries,
countries they were forced to flee. So they’ve been given a flag,
the Olympic flag, to march behind at the opening ceremony in
Rio and to compete under at the games.
They have stories of unfathomable hardship.
Yiech was a 9-year-old boy caught up in the Sudanese civil
war in 2005 when his mother — with no food and no other hope
— left him with a neighbor and went in search of something to
eat for her family. She didn’t come back. Yiech was sent, alone,
to the vast Kakuma refugee camp in northern Kenya.
James Nyang Chiengjiek wasn’t much older, a child who
herded cattle, when soldiers tried to kidnap him and force him to
go to war. He ran away and also ended up at Kakuma, a camp
teeming at one time with nearly 200,000 people, all homeless,
many of them hopeless.
Scrambling to hide when her village was attacked by a rival
tribe, Rose Nathike Lokonyen came across the dead bodies of
her grandparents. She was 7.
Paulo Amotun Kokoro’s childhood memories are of running,
but not for fun or for sport. He ran for his life as bullets whizzed
past his head.
Anjelina Nadai Lohalith was separated from her parents as a
child more than a decade ago. The 21-year-old hasn’t heard from
them since, and can only hope that the news passed on to her
that they are still alive is true.
“What I want to be is a champion,” said Nadai Lohalith,
whose event is the 1,500 meters. “One day, one time.” She
hopes for a successful Olympics but, more than that, a reunion
with the parents she hasn’t seen in more than 10 years.
The rest of the team is made up of two swimmers from wartorn Syria who, separately, made the treacherous voyage across
the Aegean Sea on flimsy inflatable boats to reach Europe. They
then trekked from country to country seeking shelter.

who left Ethiopia in fear for his life, who now drives a taxi in
Luxembourg to make ends meet, trains alone, and still wins
Make no mistake their places at the Olympics have been
earned: All 10 have met qualifying criteria.
It’s still a steep curve, especially for the South Sudanese.
They have only been in formal training for a few years at the
most, some of them just months. But after the hardships they
endured early in life, this challenge isn’t that scary.
“If I compare the training or the duration of training with
other people I am going to compete with, (it) is not the same.
But, I do not fear that,” Nadai Lohalith said.
They’ve come a long way, but Wagner said if any of them get
through the qualifying heats at the Olympics, it’ll be huge. But
that’s not the point.
It was never the point.
“When you give these people hope,” coach Wagner said,
“that made this project successful.”
They look forward to being at the Olympic village in Rio and
meeting other athletes. They look forward to having their own
uniforms and running shoes. They look forward to being part of
a team.
Most of all, they look forward.

Turkey’s Erdogan slams U.S. reaction to failed coup
By Suzan Fraser and Elena Becatoros

ANKARA, Turkey — Turkey’s president
slammed the United States on Friday, claiming it was not standing firmly against a
failed military coup and accused it of harboring the plot’s alleged mastermind, as a
government crackdown in the coup’s aftermath strained Turkey’s ties with key allies.
Turkey has demanded the United States
extradite Fethullah Gulen, a cleric living in
self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania whom
it accuses of being behind the violent July
15 coup attempt that left more than 200
people dead. It is accusing Western nations
of not extending sufficient support to its
efforts to counter further threats from followers of the Gulen movement, which it
says have infiltrated the country’s state
Turkey considers Gulen’s movement a terrorist organization. Gulen has denied any
prior knowledge of the plot and says his
movement espouses interfaith dialogue.
The United States has asked Turkey for evidence of his involvement, and said the U.S.

extradition process must take its course.
“Instead of thanking this nation that
quashed the coup in the name of democracy,
on the contrary, you are taking sides with
the coup plotters,” Turkish President Recep
Tayyip Erdogan said in an angry speech
Friday at a police special forces headquarters in Ankara. The facility was bombed and
fired upon during the attempted coup, and 47
police officers were killed.
“The putschist is already in your country,” Erdogan said.
The president also lashed out at an
American military official who expressed
concern that the failed coup may have longerterm effects on the U.S.-led fight against
Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq.
Gen. Joseph Votel said Thursday the
unrest could affect U.S. relations with the
Turkish military, noting that some of its
leaders have been jailed.
“We’ve certainly had relationships with a
lot of Turkish leaders, military leaders in
particular. And so I’m concerned about what
the impact is on those relationships as we
continue to move forward,” Votel said at the
Aspen Security Forum.


Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan addresses the audience as he visits the Turkish police special
forces base damaged by fighting during a coup attempt in Ankara, Turkey.

Pentagon: No U.S. military
support for Turkey coup
By Lolita C. Baldor

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon on Friday flatly rejected
allegations by Turkey’s president that the U.S. military was
somehow involved in or in any way supported the recent
failed coup in that country.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan lashed out at the
U.S. Friday and criticized a senior military commander who
had expressed concerns that the violent July 15 coup could
have longer-term impact on U.S. relations with the Turkish
military. Erdogan said the U.S. was taking sides with coup
Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook said any suggestion
that the U.S. supported the coup was absurd and wrong.
He said Defense Secretary Ash Carter received assurances
from his Turkish counterpart that the fight against Islamic
State militants won’t be affected. The U. S. launches
airstrikes, surveillance aircraft and other missions out of
Turkey’s Incirlik air base.
Cook said that while U.S. and Turkish officials “talk
every day,” he could not say whether or not any senior U.S.
defense or military officials had reached out to Erdogan
Friday to specifically discuss or refute the latest accusations.
Erdogan at a speech Friday criticized Gen. Joseph Votel,
the top U.S. commander for the Middle East, who noted that
some Turkish military leaders whom the U.S. had relationships with have been jailed in the wake of the attempted
“So I’m concerned about what the impact is on those relationships as we continue to move forward,” Votel said during the Aspen Security Forum on Thursday.
Cook echoed Votel’s comments, saying the key point is
that “we have excellent military-to-military cooperation,
have had for some time with the Turkish military. If you are
no longer able to talk to a counterpart that you’ve dealt with
for some time, there’s a concern that there might be some
breakdown in communication. We are trying to work
through that with the Turks and have every confidence we’ll
be able to do that.”

Rabat zoo seeks answers
after elephant kills girl with stone
PARIS — Experts at a zoo in the Moroccan capital of
Rabat are trying to understand why an elephant hurled a
stone toward visitors, killing a 7-year-old girl.
The behavior of the female elephant was “abnormal” and
needs to be understood, a veterinarian at the zoo said Friday.
The girl was visiting the Zoological Garden of Rabat with
her family on Tuesday, admiring three elephants when one
picked up a stone, then tossed it more than 10 meters
(yards) over a huge ditch and a wooden barrier toward the
visitors. The girl was struck in the head and died hours later.
The elephant exhibit has been temporarily closed, zoo
veterinarian Abderahim Salhi said by telephone. He said
that zoo personnel remained in shock three days later at
what he called an “unforeseeable accident.”
“The behavior ... of any animal is very complex,” he
said, “and wild animals are unpredictable.”

‘Bad Moms’ flirts with

The comedy “Bad Moms”

for the PTA set. And, while a
wild send-up of modern
parental perfection — that
insidious idea that exists only
in commercials and glossy
magazines — is a worthy and
fresh subject for a fun summer

comedy, “Bad Moms” is ultimately rather conventional.
Set in an upper middle class
Chicago suburb, “Bad Moms”
centers on Amy (Mila Kunis),
a perpetually stressed and
overworked 32-year-old with
a part time job and two super
busy pre-teens. Lest you think
Kunis is a little too young to
have pre-teens, the first line in
the movie has her explaining

that she got pregnant at 20.
The movie is on the defense

Amy spends her days shuttling her kids (Oona Laurence

school to soccer practice to

‘Nerve’ is a dark thriller for
the Pokemon Go generation
By Lindsey Bahr

LOS ANGELES — The invigorating new
thriller “Nerve,” now playing in theaters,
goes deep into the psychology of the internet with an addictive game that’s so fresh,
you wonder whether the filmmakers had a tip
that the Pokemon Go craze was on the horizon.
In the film, based on the 2012 Jeanne
Ryan novel, Nerve is an app-based game
that’s all the rage among the kids. You can
choose to be a “player” or a “watcher.”
Players are given dares by anonymous
masses of watchers with the promise of cash
prizes at the end of each dare, which they
have to film themselves doing — not dissimilar to Facebook Live or Periscope.

The dares can be as innocuous as kissing a
stranger for five seconds, which is how
Emma Roberts’ square high school student

Or the dares can be as dangerous as deadhanging off a high-rise.
“Nerve” is directed by Henry Joost and

world “Catfish,” that is-it-real, is-it-fake
cultural phenomenon/documentary from
2010 about lying on the internet that
birthed the popular television show. They
were excited to jump back into the current
state of the internet. A lot has changed in
six years, and “Nerve” almost makes
“Catfish” look quaint.

In new artful documentary
‘Gleason,’ hero battles ALS
By Mark Kennedy

NEW YORK — Football star Steve
Gleason was known for throwing caution to
the wind. He’d launch himself down the
field with seemingly no regard for his own
Gleason cemented his place in New
Orleans Saints lore with a blocked punt during the Louisiana Superdome’s reopening
following Hurricane Katrina. He retired
from the sport in 2008, saying: “I can walk
away with my health.”
Fate had other plans.
You’d better have plenty of tissues on
hand when you watch the moving, remarkable “Gleason,” a documentary about the
ex-Saint whose bravest days were actually
ahead of him.
Five years to the day after his memorable
block, Gleason went public with his diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also
known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Doctors
said he had only a few more years to live.
Adding to the anguish of the moment was
that his wife was pregnant with their first
Clay Tweel’s documentary could so easily
have turned into a gooey pile of Hallmark
aphorisms but it refuses to be maudlin,
faithfully capturing the unmerciful progression of the disease as it robs Gleason of his
voice, the use of his legs and later control
over his bowels. It never robs his spirit,
The footage is mostly shot by Gleason
himself in the form of an ongoing video
diary to his newborn son, Rivers. He wants
to give advice, read nursery books and tell
him who his father is before he runs out of
time. Gleason comes across as irrepressibly
optimistic, even as his body turns on him.

He’s as fearless as when he was playing.
Tweel (whose other documentaries include
“Print the Legend” and “Finders Keepers”)
includes interviews with family members
and friends, but stumbles when he strays
further afield - like interviews with members of Pearl Jam, Gleason’s favorite band.
Tweel occasionally adds piano or classical music to signal poignant moments, as
when Rivers happily eats cake with his
hands at his first birthday while his father
beside him in a wheelchair needs to be fed.
The best footage is the kind that’s unanticipated, as when cameras capture a marital
spat or a spontaneously dad-son nuzzle.
Gleason tries to outwit his disease at
every turn. He believes technology like
eye-tracking software can give back to ALS
patients whatever the disease robs. But it’s
a brutal illness. Within a year, Gleason
starts to walk awkwardly, then needs a cane,
then a wheelchair. Subtitles eventually are
added, as if he was slowly slipping into a
foreign land.
“I think the last of my talking days are
here,” he addresses his son at one raw point.
“I have no hope. I want to punch something
but I can’t. The only thing I can do is
The former football play’s humor,
though, won’t be dulled. One of the film’s
most enduring images is of Gleason zooming along in his wheelchair with his gleeful
infant son in his lap. Gleason even keeps
upbeat while undergoing a painful enema.
While struggling against the disease and
advocating for fellow ALS patients,
Gleason is also trying to heal the rift with
his own stern father and deliver wisdom to
the next generation. It’s a movie as much
about fathers and sons as it is about living
with ALS.

‘Gleason’ is a documentary about the ex-Saint and his battle with Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Football star with ALS
finds a new purpose
By Jake Coyle

NEW YORK — In the opening moments of
the documentary “Gleason,” the celebrated
New Orleans Saints safety Steve Gleason
talks to the camera with a not-yet-occupied
crib behind him. He has just learned that he
has ALS. Soon the symptoms will take over.
Preparing for what’s coming, Gleason tells
his unborn son that he wants to give him “as
much of myself as I possibly can while I still
What follows is a father-son tale of staggering spirit, both tragic and awe-inspiring.
With overwhelming intimacy, “Gleason” follows Steve (diagnosed at age 34) and his
wife, Michel, into the maelstrom of ALS, or
Lou Gehrig’s disease, as the couple adjusts to
their fluctuating reality and makes way for
their son, Rivers.
“Ultimately, if the audience walks away
from this film with anything, my hope is
they understand that in the midst of our adversity, we will find our greatest opportunities,”
Gleason, who now communicates through a
machine he operates with his eyes, said by
email. “Everyone faces tragedy and adversity,
but most often, that is where we find our
power and meaning.”
“Gleason,” which has already soaked all
the Kleenex along the festival circuit, is a
mixture of video journals Gleason shot for
his son while he still had the power of

speech, and documentary footage. His body
disintegrates heartbreakingly fast, just as he,
undaunted, embarks on a new mission to raise
attention for ALS.
Edited together from 1,300 hours of
footage by director Clay Tweel, “Gleason” is
a family portrait that doesn’t shy away from
the disease’s day-to-day hardships, the
Gleasons’ naked emotions or even Rivers’
“This is purely just raw, real emotion,”
says Michel Varisco Gleason, speaking by
phone. “It’s crazy that it’s out there, but it
The film packs such a wallop partly
because the Gleasons are themselves so
unsentimental. They’re free spirits and
adventurers, more likely to use a new wheelchair to spin around a toddler than lament
their unfair fate. But both Steve and Michel
acknowledge being nervous about releasing
such an intimate film — “the inside of our
life,” Michel calls it.
“Honestly, I am not sure I will ever be completely comfortable with some of these intimate and raw moments being public,” says
Gleason. “At the same time, I believe that our
greatest strength as humans is to share our
weakness and vulnerability with each other.”
Gleason played for seven years in the NFL,
where he was most famous for a cathartic,
city-rallying punt block in the early minutes
of the Saints’ first Superdome game after
Hurricane Katrina.

Pacific Coast city of Richmond, British

Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Mainland China.
By 2013, Richmond had an immigrant population of 60 percent, with 50 percent of

of empathy and humor to what could have
easily been a train wreck of a part.

The saving grace is in the oddball friendship between Amy, Kiki and Carla. But

The scariest part of “Nerve” is that the

game is user generated and promulgated.
There is no center to attack once things
start getting out of hand. This was a change
from the novel, which has a shadowy evil
genius controlling everything.
“We realized what was actually more insidious and scarier and much harder to control
and confront is if we’re the bad guys,”
screenwriter Jessica Sharzer said. “It’s more
truthful to the way the internet works.”

Moore said the nearly 25 years she has

that runs near Polhemus Creek, according to
Cal Water and officials with the water board.
The utility will also work collaboratively
with state wildlife officials and fund a
streambed and habitat restoration project in
the San Mateo Creek.
The penalty is in part related to Cal
Water’s failure to adequately respond to the
leak. Cal Water workers had initially dismissed alerts that there was a drop in water
pressure due to an ongoing issue with
meters and it was hard to visually confirm a
leak as the pipe was underground, officials
said previously.
Ultimately, it appears much of the water
did not enter the creek, instead it likely
seeped into the ground surrounding the broken pipe, said Tim Treloar, Cal Water’s vice
president of Water Quality and Operations.
Regardless, the utility is committed to
learning from the mistake and helping

Moore came to the district last year as an
interim vice chancellor of Educational
Services and Planning, prior to being
selected in June by the district board as
president over 47 other qualified candidates, according to a district press release.
Board President Dave Mandelkern said in
a prepared statement he believed Moore
will serve the Cañada College community
well over the coming years.
“From a strong field of candidates, the
board has selected an experienced, talented
and dedicated community college educator
to lead Cañada College, ” he said. “We
believe ... Moore will continue Cañada’s
strong tradition of providing leading-edge
educational opportunities and support services that help ensure student success.”
Before joining the local district, Moore
worked as a senior official for the state

College District.

“This was a very strange occurrence, it’s
just not a normal main break,” Treloar said,
noting they couldn’t visually confirm the
leak for a few days. “And the problem is we
have to protect public health, so we have a
disinfectant in the water, but it’s the same
disinfectant that’s harmful to the environment.”
Despite the unfortunate circumstances,
Treloar said it is exciting that the utility
now gets to wade into uncharted territory —
a streambed habitat restoration project.
Admittedly inexperienced, Cal Water will
work closely with Fish and Wildlife to determine how to best improve the creek and
promote steelhead habitat, Treloar said.
“We’re going to do our best to do exactly
what Fish and Wildlife would like to see
done there so that we’re good stewards of

about restoring and getting back to where
we were and hopefully make things better
for the future.”
Treloar acknowledged the utility originally failed to correctly report the extent of the

board considered when determining culpability.

leading up to her losing a battle with cancer.
Moore said she appreciated officials
allowing her to be with her family in a time
of need.
“It’s been an extraordinary opportunity
to work for a district that really walks the
talk about family first,” she said.
Family is an extremely important component of Moore’s life, she said, as much of
her time away from the office is dedicated to
raising her teen nephew Thomas, who she
adopted as her son.
Between the taxing professional obligations associated with running a community
college, and preserving time to be a mothwas less than 50,000 gallons and occurred
over just one day. But after the control board
sought more information, it was determined
that nearly 2,280 gallons had leaked every
minute over the course of nearly five days.
White said the control board feels the
fines are appropriate, noting half of the $1
million would be spent by Cal Water to
replace its own infrastructure — 2,000 feet
of water main near the Polhemus Creek.
Essentially the utility ends up improving
its system to deter future breaks from occurring in an environmentally sensitive area,
White said.
The remaining nearly half a million will
contribute toward a statewide remediation
fund that is used to support environmental
projects or cleanups, White said.
Although several other utilities across the
region have received fines for spills at one
point or another, White emphasized the
value of encouraging best practices
amongst water suppliers to discourage
impacts to the environment.
“What it’s been about the last few years is
really educating the water purveyors about
the importance of having a quick response.
Response time is critical, the faster they
can get out there and shut these mains down,
the less volume there’s going to be, therefore the less harm,” White said.

But her professional and personal interests may intersect, as Moore said an initial
focus of her work as an administrator will
be helping students cope with the heightened tension associated with relations
between people of color and law enforcement.
Moore said she and her son have had an
ongoing series of similar discussions dedicated to keeping him safe when interacting
with police, and she plans to open up that
dialogue on the Cañada campus as well,
because the issue resonates with many of
the school’s students.
The discussions will begin next month,
said Moore, and she expects the conversations to be substantial and valuable.
“We are going to be having a courageous
conversation around race and law enforcement,” she said.
Moore said she looks forward to beginning all the hard work associated with
ensuring students are offered the education
needed to excel in academics, but also the
lessons to keep them on the path to success
beyond the walls of the classroom.
“I do feel very fortunate,” she said. “This
is a great college and a wonderful opportunity. I’m excited.”

Because potable water must be treated to
keep it safe for humans, White said it’s
important to educate the public as well
about how their own behavior might have a
negative impact.
“The public can also be releasing potable
water to our creeks. Even emptying your hot
tub in an area that’s going to drain into a
creek or leaving a hose running can be critical,” White said, noting the chlorine burns
the gills of fish.
Another best practice utilities and even
cities can implement is installing chlorine
filters or “mats” near storm drains or at the
ends of pipes that may discharge into a sensitive habitat, White said.
In the 2013 spill, local residents’ drinking water is attributed to killing hundreds of
fish. Now, remediation is focused on restoring a sensitive habitat for the betterment of
the species that rely upon it as well as the
community, said Eric Laughlin, a
spokesman with the state Department of
Fish and Wildlife.
“The overall goal is to address the damage
to the resource and come as close as we can
to the conditions before the spill,” said
Laughlin. “We want to make sure the public
is compensated for the loss of resources. …
Anyone who pollutes is going to be held

law being proposed and that its intent
is to wipe out all previous laws that
may be inconsistent with it, including
Measure T,” responded Kane to a letter
from Ashlee Titus, an attorney hired by
the California Apartment Association,
claiming the petition with signatures
supporting the rent control movement
should be disregarded as it allegedly
violated state election laws.
The Burlingame Advocates for
Renters Protections submitted the more
than the 2,332 signatures necessary to
put their proposal onto the presidential
election ballot, and received confirmation from county elections officials last
week those were enough to quality.
But Titus said in her letter city officials are obligated to throw out the rent
control effort, because the advocates’
petition was incomplete as it did not
include the complete Measure T text,
making it impossible for those signing
to know all the necessary details of the
ordinance up for repeal.
Kane’s letter to the council suggests
though the petition did not include all
of language of the ordinance passed by
voters in 1988 to prevent rent control,
a reasonable signer could understand
the aim of the initiative.
“Having the text of Measure T itself
may … be something a conscientious
voter would desire, but it is unlikely a
court would find it necessary for understanding the nature of the initiative

rather than vulnerable
Those who visit are available to take
home bags full of meat and dairy products purchased by the center at a reduced
price from local stores, as well as
donated canned goods and produce,
which comes courtesy of Second
Harvest Food Bank and local residents,
among other sources. Diapers are also
available to families with young children, as well as bags of select toiletries.
Fresh produce and fruit along with
assorted packages of other food are
assembled across tables near the entryway of the building, and those seeking
assistance are able to browse while filling grocery bags with their selections.
Boesch said granting clients the ability to choose their own food and take it
home to prepare on their own terms can
be empowering for those who may otherwise be feeling vulnerable.

being proposed,” according to the letter.
An attorney hired by the renters’
advocates claims a sufficient sample of
the Measure T text was offered during
the signature collection campaign to
adequately inform those interested in
“The initiative petition meets the
requirements of California election law
and its validity would be upheld by a
court,” according to the letter from
attorney Daniel Saver, of Community
Legal Services in East Palo Alto, which
represents the rent control advocates.
Should the council disagree and prevent the initiative from moving ahead,
Saver said his group could pursue a lawsuit seeking legal injunction.
The council ultimately will be
charged with first deciding on whether
the petition should survive the legal
challenge, and then can order a special
election to be held on Election Day, in
which voters can determine the fate of
the measure.
The council could also postpone a
decision in favor of collecting more
information, which would likely cause
the initiative to miss the fall election
ballot, as the deadline to float measures
looms in the next couple weeks. Under
such a decision, the council would need
to call another, later election, which
would cost the city roughly $100,000
more than allowing it to go on the fall
Should the initiative reach the ballot
and be approved, landlords in
Burlingame could not hike 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 landlord would be granted greater power under the implementation of just cause eviction policies as
Cindy Cornell, president of the
Burlingame Advocates for Renters
Protections, said in an email she looked
forward to officials formally vetting the
initiative and hopefully allowing it to
go before voters.
“We have absolute confidence in the
validity of our ballot initiative, and feel
CAA’s attempt to block a truly grassroots democratic effort is meritless and
not in the interests of Burlingame’s residents,” she said. “It’s all about respecting the will of the people, and to let the
democratic process sort this out at the
ballot box.”
Josh Howard, spokesman for the
apartment association though, disagreed.
“We hope that the city clerk upholds
the elections code and rejects this noncompliant measure so that we do not
need to consider litigation but can focus
on truly addressing our region’s housing crisis with real solutions not failed
policies that do not produce affordable
housing,” he said in an email.

Though space comes at a premium
amidst the boxes of food and other
necessities packed nearly to the ceilings in the innards and attic of the small
building, those waiting their turn to

The center was formerly associated
with Christian Action Life Line, hence
the acronym prefix in its name, but has
since reorganized as an independent
nonprofit organization which relies
heavily on the assistance of local community members and companies.
Boesch said the organization greatly
appreciates all the generosity offered
by local residents and companies,
which makes the food distribution service possible.
“When we ask, they respond,” said
Boesch. “We wouldn’t be here without
the community.”
Boesch is the only full-time employee of the center, accompanied by three
other part-time workers. The rest of the
services are operated by a staff of
roughly 70 volunteers who assist
clients, pick up and deliver food, as
well as a variety of other vital forms of

nOtIcE OF pEtItIOn tO
Bret Allen mcdonald
Case Number: 16PRO00157
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of Bret Allen McDonald. A
Petition for Probate has been filed by
Morgan A. Leech in the Superior Court
of California, County of San Mateo. The
Petition for Probate requests that Morgan
A. Leech be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of
the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the
Independent Administration of Estates
Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions
without obtaining court approval. Before
taking certain very important actions,
however, the personal representative will
be required to give notice to interested
persons unless they have waived notice
or consented to the proposed action.)
The independent administration authority
will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and
shows good cause why the court should
not grant the authority.
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: AUG 29, 2016 at
9:00 a.m., Department 28, Superior
Court of California, County of San Mateo,
400 County Center, Redwood City, CA
If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the
Calilfornia Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under sectioin
9052 of the Callifornia Probate
Code.Other California statutes and legal
authority may affect your rights as a
creditor. You may want to consult with an
attorney knowledgable in California law.
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court a
Request for Special Notice (form DE154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.

Surprise! Newspapers are not dead. They’re not
dying. They’re 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
readers … or advertisers. Many newspapers are
increasing readership.
In 2012, 62 percent of adults in the United States read
a newspaper each week. It’s 67 percent when you
include online newspapers.*

nOtIcE tO rEAdErS:
California law requires that contractors
taking jobs that total $500 or more (labor
or materials) be licensed by the Contractor’s State License Board. State law also
requires that contractors include their license number in their advertising. You
can check the status of your licensed
contractor at www.cslb.ca.gov or 800321-CSLB. Unlicensed contractors taking
jobs that total less than $500 must state
in their advertisements that they are not
licensed by the Contractors State License Board.
