County forms pot work group
Proposition 64 on November ballot legalizes recreational use of marijuana
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

San Mateo County has formed a
work group to explore the possible benefits and liabilities to the
county if state voters approve
legalizing marijuana for recreational use in November.
Assistant County Manager
Mike Callagy has convened the

group comprised of officials from
the Department of Agriculture,
County Counsel’s Office, District
Attorney’s Office, Budget and
Policy Unit and the Health
System.
A study session will be held in
October, Callagy said, to look at
the issue from all perspectives.
Proposition 64, the Adult Use of
Marijuana Act, controls, regulates

and taxes adult use of marijuana
and is backed by Lt. Gov. Gavin
Newsom.
The county’s work group will
conduct a fact-finding mission
initially and be prepared to implement new policies “needed to
address the voters’ desire, ”
Callagy said Tuesday.
It will be up to the Board of
Supervisors, he said, whether to

create ordinances or policies as a
model for cities to follow.
“Everyone is trying to understand what the state’s responsibility will be and then see how it will
impact us locally,” Callagy said
about municipalities preparing for
the proposition’s passage.
Marijuana is legal for medical
use and has arguably been decriminalized in California.

A yes vote on Proposition 64
means adults 21 or older could
legally grow, possess and use marijuana for nonmedical purposes,
with certain restrictions. The state
would regulate nonmedical marijuana businesses and tax the growing and selling of medical and
nonmedical marijuana. Most of

San Mateo woman grieves after fire
Dog died in last week’s blaze, vet bills outstanding

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

For the first time since her San
Mateo condominium caught fire
last week — killing one of her
dogs and destroying nearly all her
possessions — Sara O’Brien
walked through the charred
remains of her home to survey the
damage Thursday.
A thick sludge of watered-down
debris carpeted the floor as she
inspected to see if anything was
salvageable.

See FIRE, Page 22

Ever wondered what recycled
water tastes like? Well Gov. Jerry
Brown and Assemblyman Rich
Gordon want you to find out.
This week, Brown signed
Gordon’s Assembly Bill 2022,
which will allow recycled water
facilities to distribute small bottles of highly purified reused water
for free. Gordon, D-Menlo Park,
said he was inspired to propose the
legislation as a way to help
Californian’s get over the perceived “yuck factor” of drinking
recycled water.
“This is exactly the kind of

water that astronauts have been
drinking
for
years, ” Gordon
said. “I think it
would be a great
source for us and
having tasted
the
water
myself,
I
think
Rich Gordon
people will find
they can’t taste the difference.”
The new law goes into effect
Jan. 1, and will allow facilities
that produce recycled water to take
free samples out into the community for educational purposes.

The authority says that prior to the

sheriff’s officials said.
Jesus Cisneros, 20, was arrested at 9:23
p.m. in the 1800 block of Higgins Canyon
Road just east of Half Moon Bay after he
allegedly crashed into the rear of another car
and sped off to evade deputies.
A deputy allegedly saw the crash and
Cisneros speed off onto private property.
Sheriff’s officials said Cisneros’ car then hit
an agricultural steel conveyor belt, which
shattered a passenger side window.
Cisneros sped off again and stopped at his
home where deputies detained him and two
other people, a 15-year-old girl and 18-yearold Madison Rice, according to the Sheriff’s
Office. Deputies said they found Rice covered
in glass. She was taken to a hospital for treatment.
Rice was allegedly carrying a backpack
containing a large bag of marijuana. Inside
the vehicle, deputies allegedly found phenobarbital pills, which all three said they had
taken along with Xanax.
Rice was cited for contributing to the delinquency of a minor and possessing marijuana.
She was released on a promise to appear in
court. The initial crash injured the driver of
the other vehicle.
Cisneros, who failed a field sobriety test,
was taken to a hospital to be medically
cleared before being taken to county jail.
Other offenses he is accused of include evading a peace officer and driving on a suspended license, sheriff’s officials said.

Luxury stores add
more amenities in
a tougher market
By Aanne d’Innocenzio
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — Buying some suits at Ralph Lauren might
mean being offered a chauffeured ride home in a BMW. New
clothes from Saks could lead to a Mercedes-Benz van carrying a customized wardrobe pulling up to a home, hotel or
office.
With designer goods available online anytime, luxury
retailers are adding more amenities and personal touches for
in-person shopping. Stores overall are facing slower sales
amid more restrained luxury spending, and some brands’
flagship locations in major cities have seen a drop in shopping by international tourists because of the stronger U.S.
dollar.
That makes it even more important for retailers to keep
the customers they have feeling valued and pampered.
Robert Burke, president of his namesake New York-based
luxury consulting business, said he was surprised when the
Ralph Lauren sales staff sent him back to his office with a
uniformed driver after he came in to buy two suits. He was
offered the same chauffeured treatment for the fitting. And
he was so pleased with the service he bought a coat and
blazer on the visit to do the alterations, and penned a note
to the founder’s chief of staff with thanks.
“It made you feel they really appreciated my business, and
it made me want to shop. It was a nice perk to have a driver
come and pick you up,” he said.
What Burke hadn’t realized was that the Ralph Lauren
store in Manhattan earlier this year began picking up and
dropping off customers in a BMW sporting a small company logo. It’s expected to serve as a model for the kind of
service the company wants to offer customers at its top
stores. At the soon-to-open Beverly Hills store, a full-time
concierge will offer services beyond shopping, like making dinner reservations or recommending art galleries.
Lafayette 148 New York, a clothing brand that sells to
Saks, Neiman Marcus and other upscale retailers, also offers
a pick-up and drop-off service for customers at two
Manhattan stores. Neiman Marcus Group’s Bergdorf
Goodman has expanded the number of translators at its New
York store for international shoppers. Credit card holders
for both retailers can access a 24-hour concierge service to
book travel or theatre tickets.
And the Americana Manhasset Mall on Long Island,
which offers a free personal shopping service for the openair center that includes stores such as Louis Vuitton and
Chanel, is working to provide more service. The personal
shoppers, who used to work just with the stores at the mall,
now go for training at the corporate offices or meet with the
brand’s corporate staff at the shopping mall so they can
better serve the customer.
Saks Fifth Avenue, under new President Marc Metrick, is
offering what he calls “more high-touch” experiences.

Feds OK plan to fight housing
displacement in San Francisco
By Janie Har
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO — Federal housing officials approved a preference
plan that advocates said Thursday will
help low-income minorities stay in
increasingly
unaffordable
San
Francisco.
The U.S. Department of Housing and
Urban Development will allow San
Francisco to set aside 40 percent of
affordable units at a new senior complex for low-income applicants who
live in certain districts. The agency
informed the city of its decision on
Wednesday.
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and
other city officials had sought permission to reserve 40 percent of the units
for people in the neighborhood where
the new complex is located, but HUD
officials rejected the plan as limiting

equal access to housing in violation of
fair housing law.
The rejection disheartened city leaders struggling to keep San Francisco
affordable for residents, especially for
dwindling numbers of AfricanAmericans who have left historically
black neighborhoods for lower-cost
suburbs.
In 1970, there were 100, 000
African-Americans in San Francisco.
There are fewer than half that today
even as the population has increased.
Supervisor London Breed, who is
president of the board and pushed for
the preference, welcomed the change
of heart.
“We’ve lost a large population of
Afri can -Ameri can s
in
San
Fran ci s co , b ut we’v e al s o l o s t a
large number of middle-income San
Franciscans, ” she said. “It has been

live once they become adults. ”
The new plan gives preference to
low-income people living in five rapidly gentrifying districts, including
the Mission and Western Addition,
where the new senior complex is located. The Western Addition once housed a
thriving black community called the
“Harlem of the West” before it was
destroyed by redevelopment starting
in the 1950s.
Still, the odds of scoring a spot in
the federally subsidized complex
remain daunting. For example, 6,000
people have applied for the 98-unit
building.
HUD officials declined further comment Thursday. But in a letter to Lee,
Gustavo Velasquez, the assistant secretary for fair housing and equal opportunity wrote that HUD is “keenly aware
of the larger challenges faced by lower
income residents struggling to live in
high-cost areas.”

Amid scrutiny, California to
track all police use of force
By Amanda Lee Myers
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES — From a broken
bone to a fatal shooting, all 800
police departments in California must
begin using a new online tool
launched Thursday to report and help
track every time officers use force that
causes serious injuries.
The tool’s developers hail it as the
first statewide dataset of its kind in the
country and a model for other states.
Those more critical of law enforcement
call it a big step toward better police
accountability.
The tool, named URSUS for the bear
on California’s flag, includes fields for
the race of those injured and the officers involved, how their interaction
began and why force was deemed necessary.
“It’s sort of like TurboTax for use-offorce incidents,” said Justin Erlich, a
special assistant attorney general
overseeing the data collection and
analysis.
Departments must report the data
under a new state law passed last
November. Though some departments
already tracked such data on their own,
many did not.
Working with the California
Department of Justice, a technology
nonprofit called Bayes Impact developed the tool in hopes of making the
data easy for departments to report and
easy for the state to analyze.
The tool was built as an open-source
project, and California will share the
software code with interested law
enforcement agencies across the U.S.
Only three other states — Texas,
Colorado and Connecticut — now

“We live in a culture that perpetuates racism and we need to be able
to verify that racism through data. ... For the people who continue to
deny racial disparities exist in this country, this data will allow us to
have those living room and dinner conversations and share facts.”
— Patrisse Cullors, cofounder of Black Lives Matter

require departments to track similar
use-of-force data but their systems
aren’t digital, and in Colorado’s case,
only capture shootings, according to
the National Conference of State
Legislatures.
“As a country, we must engage in an
honest, transparent, and data-driven
conversation about police use of
force,” California Attorney General
Kamala Harris said in a news release.
The goal is to capture all incidents
that cause serious injuries but not
minor ones, like bruises.
“How do we get enough information
where we can really focus on how to
improve or inform policy? How do we
make sure it’s not too big?” Erlich
said. “Capturing stubbed toes muddies
the data but not capturing broken
bones would be a huge miss.”
California’s efforts come as the FBI
has made such data collection a priority in the wake of a number of officerinvolved deaths of unarmed black people across the country.
Last year, the FBI announced it
would begin collecting all use-of-force
data and make it public, though departments don’t have to participate.
FBI Director James Comey has
expressed frustration over the absence
of nationwide use-of-force data and
said its collection will “dispel misperceptions, foster accountability and
promote transparency.”

California’s police departments will
report their use-of-force data to the
state once a year beginning in January.
It will be made public as early as the
spring.
Until now, California only tracked
deaths in custody, not non-lethal uses
of force. And it did so using paper
forms.
“This is hugely important, ” said
Peter Bibring, director of police practices at the American Civil Liberties
Union of Southern California. “We’re
not taking use of force seriously until
we’re tracking information about
every use-of-force incident.”
Patrisse Cullors, cofounder of Black
Lives Matter, said she thinks the new
data will show a pattern of abuse across
the state. But actually collecting that
data is positive, she said.
“We live in a culture that perpetuates
racism and we need to be able to verify
that racism through data,” she said.
“For the people who continue to deny
racial disparities exist in this country,
this data will allow us to have those
living room and dinner conversations
and share facts.”
Many in law enforcement think the
data will show just how rare force incidents are, said Louis Dekmar, vice
president of the International
Association of Chiefs of Police and
chief of the LaGrange Police
Department in Georgia.

Police officers wearing riot gear block a road during protests after police fatally shot Keith
Lamont Scott in the parking lot of an apartment complex in Charlotte, N.C.

Protesters out in Charlotte for
third night but stay peaceful
By Mitch Weiss and Meg Kinnard
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Protesters massed
on Charlotte’s streets for a third night
Thursday in the latest sign of mounting
pressure for police to release video that
could resolve wildly different accounts of
the shooting of a black man.
Demonstrators chanted “release the
tape” while briefly blocking an intersection near Bank of America headquarters in
the heart of the city’s business district.
They then continued marching as police
officers watched. Members of the National
Guard carrying rifles were also deployed in
front of office buildings to head off another night of violence in this city on edge.
Officers warned protesters to disperse at
times when they stopped in front of buildings, but the demonstration remained
peaceful in the hour after darkness fell.
So far, police have resisted releasing
police dashcam and body camera footage
of the death of 43-year Keith Lamont Scott
earlier this week. His family was shown
the footage Thursday and demanded that
police release it to the public. The family’s lawyer said he couldn’t tell whether
Scott was holding a gun.
But Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief
Kerr Putney said earlier in the day the
footage of Scott’s killing could undermine

the investigation. He told reporters the
video will be made public when he
believes there is a “compelling reason” to
do so.
“You shouldn’t expect it to be released,”
Putney said. “I’m not going to jeopardize
the investigation.”
Charlotte is just the latest U.S. city to be
shaken by protests and recriminations
over the death of a black man at the hands
of police, a list that includes Baltimore,
Milwaukee, Chicago, New York and
Ferguson, Missouri. In Tulsa, Oklahoma,
on Thursday, prosecutors charged a white
officer with manslaughter for killing an
unarmed black man on a city street last
week.
In Charlotte, scores of rioters
Wednesday night attacked reporters and
others, set fires and smashed windows of
hotels, office buildings and restaurants in
the city’s bustling downtown section. The
NASCAR Hall of Fame was among the
places damaged.
Forty-four people were arrested after
Wednesday’s protests, and one protester
who was shot died at the hospital
Thursday; city officials said police did not
shoot the man and no arrests have been
made in 26-year-old Justin Carr’s death.
The unrest has seemed at odds with
Charlotte’s image as a diverse, forwardlooking banking capital of the New South.

TULSA, Okla. — Prosecutors charged a
white Oklahoma police officer with firstdegree manslaughter Thursday, less than a
week after she killed an unarmed black man
on a city street and just days after police
released graphic videos, saying in court
documents the officer “reacted unreasonably.”
Tulsa officer Betty Shelby fatally shot 40year-old Terence Crutcher on Sept. 16. The
affidavit filed with the charge says Shelby
“reacted unreasonably by escalating the situation from a confrontation with Mr.
Crutcher, who was not responding to verbal
commands and was walking away from her
with his hands held up, becoming emotionally involved to the point that she over
reacted.”
Tulsa County District Attorney Steve
Kunzweiler said arrangements were being
made for Shelby’s surrender.
The swift action in Tulsa stood in contrast
to Charlotte, North Carolina, where police
refused under mounting pressure Thursday to

Congress moves to block
‘victory tax’ on Olympic athletes
WASHINGTON — A bill moving forward
in Congress would block the IRS from taxing most medals or other prizes awarded to
U.S. Olympians.
The U.S. Olympic Committee awards cash
prizes to Olympic medal winners: $25,000
for gold, $15,000 for silver and $10,000 for
bronze. That’s in addition to the cash value
of the medals themselves: about $600 for
gold and $300 for silver. Bronze medals
have little intrinsic value.
Because the money is considered earned
income, it is taxed — a practice some lawmakers refer to the “victory tax.”

death have been consisBetty Shelby tently peaceful.
Dashcam and aerial
footage of the shooting and its aftermath
showed Crutcher walking away from Shelby
with his arms in the air. The footage does
not offer a clear view of when Shelby fired
the single shot that killed Crutcher. Her
attorney has said Crutcher was not following police commands and that Shelby
opened fire when the man began to reach
into his SUV window.
But Crutcher’s family immediately discounted that claim, saying the father of four
posed no threat to the officers. They also
pointed to an enlarged photo from police
footage that appears to show Crutcher’s
window was rolled up.
And police said Crutcher did not have a
gun on him or in his vehicle.

Around the nation
The Senate passed legislation to make the
winnings tax-free just before the Summer
Olympics. The House approved a similar
bill on Thursday, 415-1, and the bill now
goes back to the Senate.
The House bill would allow Olympic taxes
on high-profile athletes such as swimmer
Michael Phelps who earn more than $1 million a year.
For Phelps, the tax bill for his five golds
and one silver won in Rio could be steep —
as much as $55,000. Gymnast Simone Biles
faces a possible $43,000 tax bill for her
haul of four golds and one bronze.

Trump debate challenge: Keeping his cool if Clinton attacks
By Julie Pace
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON —
Donald
Trump’s advisers are urging him to
keep his cool during next week’s
presidential debate and resist
attempts by Hillary Clinton to
provoke him with questions about
his business record, wealth or controversial
comments
about
minorities.
The focus underscores the campaign’s concern that too many
Americans still don’t believe the
Republican has the temperament
to be president, which could be a
difference-maker in a close race
with Clinton.
“He can’t let Hillary get under
his skin,” said Newt Gingrich, the
former House speaker and Trump
adviser.
Gingrich is part of a rotating
cast of politicians and policy
experts traveling with Trump on
his private plane for mid-flight
debate preparations, according to
Republicans familiar with the
preparations. Others include
retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, who
is advising Trump on national
security, and economist Peter
Navarro. New Jersey Gov. Chris
Christie, a loyal Trump supporter,
has been helping on issues such as
the federal government’s relationship with the states.
Trump has eschewed the kind of
mock debate setups candidates traditionally use to get ready for the
high-pressure events and hasn’t
tapped anyone to play Clinton in
his prep sessions. But aides say he
is studying written briefing mate-

rial on domestic and international issues
and is also talking
through
topics
with
advisers.
“He’s a formidable, well-preHillary Clinton pared candidate
with a formidable, well-prepared team, ” said
Navarro, a professor at the
University of California, Irvine.
Some Trump aides are more concerned about Trump’s disposition
on the debate stage than his command of the issues, according to
Republicans who insisted on
anonymity because they were not
authorized to publicly discuss the
private debate preparations.
In particular, Trump advisers are
trying to steel him for the likelihood that Clinton will aim to get a
rise out of him on live television
in front of what both campaigns
expect to be a record-setting audience.
The Republican has long lashed
out at critics in deeply personal
ways, especially after a perceived
slight. Clinton has raised that
habit as evidence that Trump is
too thin-skinned to be trusted with
nuclear weapons and other lifeand-death decisions that cross a
president’s desk.
Voters seem to share Clinton’s
concerns. According to a new APGfK poll, just 30 percent of registered voters say they consider
Trump at least somewhat qualified
to be president. Only 24 percent
consider him at least somewhat

civil, while half consider him at
least somewhat racist.
It’s unclear how aggressive
Clinton will be in trying to bait
Trump during Monday night’s
faceoff at New York’s Hofstra
University. On the campaign trail
and in television ads, she’s targeted Trump’s criticism of a U.S.born judge of Mexican descent,
his feud with an American-Muslim
family whose son was killed in
Iraq while serving in the Army and
his mocking of a disabled
reporter. She’s also challenged his
business success and suggested he
isn’t releasing his taxes to the
public because he’s not as wealthy
as he contends.
“We have no doubt that his handlers are prevailing on him to
arrive at the debate more subdued
and to try to suppress his true

self,” said Brian Fallon, Clinton’s
spokesman. “Clearly his advisers
agree that that is not a very presidential image.”
Trump backers say the real
estate mogul is prepared to stay
steady no matter what Clinton
throws at him.
“We’re going to see the debate
prep making sure that she’s not
going to be able to pull him somehow off the message,” said Rep.
Chris Collins, a New York
Republican who is one of Trump’s
most loyal backers in Congress.
He spoke shortly after joining
other supportive lawmakers for a
meeting Thursday with Trump
political director Jim Murphy.
Collins said the Republican
nominee understands the importance of presenting “President
Trump to the American public.”

Brennan, Mattusch, Kiraly, Larenas for Harbor District board

T

he San Mateo County
Harbor District has
received more attention in
recent years than the tiny, yet
countywide, district should get.
To say that it has undergone a
transitional period would be an
understatement. However, there
has been signs of progress in
recent months and years with the
Board of Commissioners and a
new general manager setting its
sights on fiscal management and
establishing some solid goals,
both short and long term.
There have been calls for the
district to be dissolved and
absorbed by other government
agencies, which have largely
served as a wake-up call for the
board in making sure its priorities
are straight. Dissolution should
be a last resort as the district
serves a very important fishing
community on the coast and oversees the Oyster Point Marina/Park
in South San Francisco. There is a
lot of opportunity at both, and
the elected officials who oversee
the areas should have the best
handle on how to progress into
the future.
There are conflicting reports on
what exactly has caused the controversy at the district but usually
at its center is Commissioner
Sabrina Brennan, who has made it
her cause to change the previous

Editorial
climate of the district and has
made a few waves on the way.
Change can be difficult, and
there are bound to be some growing pains — which Brennan will
readily admit.
Brennan certainly has her heart
in the right place and seeks to
make the district more fiscally
responsible and responsive to its
constituents. However, she has
also had a difficult time in making
the transition from hard-hitting
community activist to an elected
official keen on collaboration.
However, within the current board
structure and with the new general
manager, there seems to be a good
amount of progress in collaboration and establishment of common goals. Brennan is bright,
creative, hard-working and
aggressive. Her presence on the
board and her focus on what she
considers to be doing the right
thing will more than likely turn
out to be an overall asset, sharp
elbows and all.
Three cheers for Tom Mattusch,
current president of the board, for
balancing the needs of the commissioners and constituents and
seeking to do what is right for the
district’s future and all the people
it serves. Mattusch is knowledge-

able, insightful, creative and collaborative and is proving to be
the much-needed glue for the
divergent personalities on the
board.
Virginia Chang Kiraly has
served on the board since
November 2015, when she was
appointed to fill a vacant seat.
Though a newcomer, she has
taken on the role with vigor and
her focus on fiscal responsibility
can only be seen as an asset.
Kiraly chose to run for a fouryear seat vacated by longtime
Commissioner Pietro Parravano,
who decided to step down. That is
opening up an opportunity for
two newcomers, Ed Larenas and
Brian Rogers, to run for the twoyear seat. Both have a firm grip
on the workings of the board and
Rogers would bring a matter-offact attitude to its activities.
However, Larenas has a wide
breadth of experience in both the
scientific and environmental
world that would complement the
work of the board right away. As a
member of Surfrider, he has
worked on coastal water quality
and helped act as a go-between for
government and citizens for the
greater good. It is that spirit of
collaboration that would serve the

board well.
The Harbor District has been
through a period of transition,
though some may say disruption,
and there is promise on the horizon. Though it has oversight of
two tiny areas of the county on
the Bayfront and the coast, it
holds influence over the everimportant and changing fishing
business and can act as a positive
changemaker for one of the county’s legacy industries. Brennan,
Mattusch, Kiraly and Larenas are
the best bets for the continuation
of that oversight and assistance
and together can lead to progress
both on the district board but also
on our coastal and Bayside communities.

Letters to the editor
Protecting all residents
Editor,
The biggest misconception in
just cause eviction laws is that it
will supposedly serve to protect
families from being displaced.
This is not the truth. Just cause
eviction laws protect criminals
and make it very difficult to
remove a tenant committing
crimes in the neighborhood.
Eviction prevention laws sound
reasonable at first, but they are a
nightmare in reality. Imagine
having a neighbor turn violent.
Normally a tenant would go to the
landlord to report the disruption.
The landlord has the obligation
to protect the safety and comfort
of all residents in the building, so
he/she takes action against the
violent tenant. This is how disputes should be resolved and it
should be done quickly.
Unfortunately, with Measures Q
and R, the landlord’s ability to
protect residents in the building
will be severely limited. Why?
Because Q and R will require the

landlord to first serve a written
warning to the aggressor before
initiating any eviction — even
after a criminal activity. This is
not fair to the residents in the
building who will live in fear
knowing that a violent neighbor
will remain in close quarters with
everyone else.
As a renter, I expect my landlord to fulfill his duty to protect
my family and immediately
remove threats from our community. The safety of all residents
should be priority number one.
Measures Q and R don’t protect
families. They protect criminals,
reward bad behavior and risk the
safety of all renters in the building.

Attacks in
New York,
New Jersey
Boston Herald

T

he weapons of choice in
last weekend’s New York
City bombing tell us a
lot about the motivation of the
bomber — and no one in Boston
needs to hear the president of the
United States or FBI officials
dance around that question.
The bomb that went off in the
Chelsea neighborhood of
Manhattan, injuring 29, was
filled with shrapnel, small bearings or metal BBs. It was
designed to do grave damage —
much like the ones that took
three lives and changed the lives
of some 260 people here in
Boston on Marathon Day in
2013. A second pressure-cooker
bomb was found before it could
be detonated. Five more unexploded devices were found in an
Elizabeth, New Jersey, train station.
This was terrorism pure and
simple — even if it did take New
York’s perfectly pathetic mayor
another 24 hours to get those
words out.
Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, shot
and captured by New Jersey
police Monday, was identified
by investigators as the “main
guy” behind the explosion in
New York City and an earlier
pipe bomb explosion in New
Jersey that targeted a charity
road race, benefiting Marines
and their families. Rahami was a
naturalized citizen, born in
Afghanistan, and harboring what
might have been a rather large
chip on his shoulder. His parents
had filed suit several years ago
alleging their fast-food chicken
restaurant was targeted by
police, not because neighbors
had complained it was a latenight nuisance but — because
they are Muslim.
It doesn’t take much these days
for those who harbor their own
set of grievances to turn them
into action. Meanwhile radical
jihadis provide a wealth of information via the internet on how
to make bombs, and at the same
time they stoke hatreds which
have already taken root.
Public officials, even
President Obama, were a little
faster to label a stabbing rampage at a Minnesota mall a
“potential act of terrorism.”
Maybe it was because the now
dead suspect was yelling the
name of Allah as he did the deed
and asking potential victims if
they were Muslim.
Other than that, Monday the
president had one of his better
No Drama Obama performances,
admonishing the press to
“refrain from getting out ahead
of the investigation” even as
Rahami was under arrest in New
Jersey.
New York and New Jersey were
saved from a far worse fate by
alert citizens and great police
work — and yes, perhaps by the
grace of a higher power. But all
that happened not because of but
in spite of political leaders who
don’t lead and can’t inspire.

Stocks see gains, led by high-dividend sectors
By Ken Sweet

DOW JONES INDUSTRIALS

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — Stocks posted
solid gains on Thursday as
investors, comfortable that the
Federal Reserve will keep interest
rates low, bought up stocks that
pay big dividends.
Real estate companies rose as
investors looked for income, as
did telecom stocks, which also
typically pay higher-than-average
dividends.
The Dow Jones industrial average rose 98.76 points, or 0.5 percent, to 18,392.46. The Standard
& Poor’s 500 index gained 14.06
points, or 0.7 percent, 2,177.18
and the Nasdaq composite climbed
44.34 points, or 0.8 percent, to
5,339.52.
The newly created real estate
component of the S&P 500
climbed 1.9 percent, far more than
any other sector. The group is
made up largely of real estate
investment trusts, which enjoy
certain tax benefits by paying out
much of their income as dividends.
Telecommunications stocks,

than the rest of the market. AT&T
rose 54 cents, or 1.3 percent, to
$41.11. Verizon Communications
rose 48 cents, or 1 percent, to
$52.35.
Trading followed a pattern that
has become familiar in the last
several months. After hesitating
or worrying that the Federal
Reserve will raise interest rates,
investors piled into high-dividend

stocks following yet another Fed
decision to stand pat on interest
rates. The two best performing
parts of the S&P 500 this year are
utilities and telecoms, up 18 percent and 15 percent respectively.

Yahoo hack steals personal info
from at least 500 million accounts
By Michael Liedtke
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO — Computer
hackers swiped personal information from at least 500 million
Yahoo accounts in what is
believed to be the biggest digital
break-in at an email provider.
The massive security breakdown disclosed Thursday poses
new headaches for beleaguered
Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer as she
scrambles to close a $4.8 billion
sale to Verizon .
The breach dates back to late
2014, raising questions about the
checks and balances within Yahoo
— a fallen internet star that has
been laying off staff and trim-

ming expenses to counter a steep
drop in revenue during the past
eight years.
At the time of the break-in,
Yahoo’s security team was led by
Alex Stamos, a respected industry
executive who left last year to
take a similar job at Facebook.
Yahoo didn’t explain what took
so long to uncover a heist that it
blamed on a “state-sponsored
actor” — parlance for a hacker
working on behalf of a foreign
government.
The Sunnyvale, California,
company declined to explain how
it reached its conclusions about
the attack for security reasons,
but said it is working with the FBI
and other law enforcement. Yahoo

began investigating a possible
breach in July, around the time the
tech site Motherboard reported
that a hacker who uses the name
“Peace” was trying to sell account
information belonging to 200
million Yahoo users.
Yahoo didn’t find evidence of
that reported hack, but additional
digging later uncovered a far larger, allegedly state-sponsored
attack.
“We take these types of breaches very seriously and will determine how this occurred and who is
responsible,” the FBI said in a
Thursday statement.
The Yahoo theft represents the
accounts ever stolen from a single
email provider, according to com-

puter security analyst Avivah
Litan with the technology
research firm Gartner Inc.
“It’s a shocking number,” Litan
said. “This is a pretty big deal that
is probably going to cost them
tens of millions of dollars.
Regulators and lawyers are going
to have a field day with this one.”
Yahoo says it has more than 1
billion monthly users, although
it hasn’t disclosed how many of
those people have email
accounts. In July, 161 million
people worldwide used Yahoo
email on personal computers, a
30 percent decline from the same
time in 2014, according to the
latest data from the research firm
comScore.

LinkedIn adding new training features, news feeds and ‘bots’
By Brandon Bailey
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO — LinkedIn
wants to become more useful to
workers by adding personalized
news feeds, helpful messaging
“bots” and recommendations for
online training courses, as the professional networking service
strives to be more than just a tool
for job-hunting.

The new services will arrive just
as LinkedIn itself gains a new boss
— Microsoft — which is paying
$26 billion to acquire the Silicon
Valley company later this year.
LinkedIn said the new features,
which it showed off to reporters
Thursday, were in the works before
the Microsoft takeover was
announced in June. But LinkedIn

LinkedIn says it will soon introduce a bot that could help someone
schedule a meeting with another
LinkedIn user, by comparing calendars and suggesting a convenient
time and meeting place.
The new bot will be part of an
online messaging service that
LinkedIn is gradually expanding to
make it easier for users to communicate without opening a new
screen or switching to email.

The Federal Reserve kept its key
interest rate unchanged Wednesday
but signaled it is likely to raise it
later this year. The Fed said the
U.S. job market has strengthened
and economic activity has picked
up but business investment is soft
and inflation too low. The central
bank said risks to its economic
outlook are “roughly balanced.”
The Fed’s decision to keep rates
low also caused bond prices to rise
and the U.S. dollar to fall against
other major currencies, which in
turn helped boost prices of commodities, which are denominated
in dollars.
The yield on the U.S. Treasury
10-year note fell to 1.62 percent
from 1.67 percent the day before.
U.S. benchmark crude rose 98
cents to close at $46.32 a barrel,
while Brent crude, used to price
international oils, gained 82
cents to close at $47.65 a barrel.
In other energy commodities,
heating oil rose 2. 5 cents to
$1.45 a gallon, wholesale gasoline rose less than 1 cent to $1.40
a gallon and natural gas fell 7
cents to $2.99 per 1,000 cubic
feet.

Game of the Week

Local teams

Serra tourney

The Menlo School boys’ water polo program hosts the Scott Roche Invitational.
Most of the top teams in Northern
California participate in the CCS-NCS
Challenge. The elite squads, such as Sacred
Heart Prep, test their skills in Southern
California tournaments, which feature some
of the best teams in the state and country.
But what do those water polo teams, that
are not among the best of the best, do?
Many of the teams in the Peninsula Athletic
League would have their hats handed to them
in the above tournaments. Are there no tournaments for second-tier teams to hone their
skills in a competitive environment?
Serra water polo coach Bob Greene hopes
to fill that void. Beginning today and running through Saturday afternoon, the Padres
host the third annual Serra Water Polo
Classic tournament, an event that highlights — mostly — public school water
polo prowess, and teams from the PAL,
specifically.
“What I like to do is … find a way to get a
lot of the (local) team (involved in a tournament). To show that there is (good water
polo among public schools) around here,”
said Greene, who has spent the last 12 years
running the Serra polo program and the 14
years before that helming Aragon.
“I use the tournament to promote the sport
and the area. I’m a San Mateo guy. This is
my city. Anything I can do to help (promote
the sport and the city) is fantastic.”
Aragon and Serra will kick off the eightteam tournament at 3:30 p.m. Friday, followed by Hillsdale-Burlingame at 4:30,
Monta Vista-Cupertino-Mills at 5:30 and
Los Gatos-Christopher-Gilroy wrapping up
Day One competition at 6 p.m.
Saturday’s action begins at 9 a.m., with
the championship match slated for 4 p.m.
All matches are held in Serra’s pool.
Aragon and Burlingame are burning up the

The Aragon Dons are no strangers to fast
starts on the gridiron.
Out to a 4-0 overall record this year, the start
echoes each of the previous five seasons;
only once did the Dons not win their first four
games when, in 2013, they started a mere 3-0.
Friday night’s test is going to be a true one
though as Aragon completes its non-league
schedule taking on Aptos — kickoff at Aragon
is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. — for the first time
since that 2013 season. Aptos too is a faststart stalwart. Since seventh-year head coach
Randy Blankenship took over prior to the
2010 season, the Mariners have posted a 5919-2 record and haven’t lost a game in Santa
Cruz Coast League play since Blankenship’s
first year at the helm. Aptos is also the reigning three-time SCCL champ.
After what happened to the Dons last year,
they are looking to close out non-league play
strongly. While they also started the 2015
campaign 4-0, they got leveled come
Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division play,
earning just one victory in league. So, taking
winning momentum into league play this year
is a priority.
“I think it’s really important,” Aragon quarterback Gabe Campos said. “Because if we win
this we’ll have good momentum going into
league. It’s really hard to come off loses. So
it’s really important we execute.”
Campos had never played quarterback at any
level prior to this season. The most experience he has throwing is as a shortstop on the
baseball diamond. But with the graduation of
6-3 pro-style passer Tanner Nguyen, the Dons
looked to the 5-7 Campos — who served as a
slot receiver last year — to take over the
offense.
“He’s a football player,” Aragon head coach
Steve Sell said. “He’s very intelligent and he’s
a natural leader. … I have been coaching long

M-A girls stun Menlo with unthinkable comeback
By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

CHRIS DENEND

M-A’s leading scorer, Annabelle Paris, scored
five times to lead the Bears to an improbable
9-8 win over rival Menlo Wednesday.

Menlo-Atherton girls’ water polo coach
Kelsey Holshouser is a lifer in the swimming pool. Even having played water polo
since she was 9, however, the first-year
head coach had never witnessed a comeback
like the one the Lady Bears pulled off from
seven goals down Wednesday against
crosstown rival Menlo School to beat the
Knights 9-8.
“I’ve never seen a team come back from a
7-0 deficit that late in a game — or even
ever in a game,” Holshouser said.
Not scoring their first goal until midway
through the third quarter, the Bears (3-0 PAL
Bay, 8-3 overall) got on the board when
senior Annabelle Paris converted on a short
shot into the high corner of goal. At that
point, still trailing 7-1, it seemed like M-A
was merely salvaging some pride. But Paris
went on to total five goals to front the

unthinkable comeback.
Menlo (2-1, 6-8) still outscored M-A 4-3
in the third period, but the Bears went on
the warpath in the fourth. Junior Ayla Huhn
scored on a counter play with just under a
minute remaining in regulation to tie it 8-8.
Then the M-A defense produced a steal with
15 seconds remaining and got the ball to
Paris who hustled to the 5-meter line and
drew a foul.
Playing off the foul, Paris immediately
fired a fastball high into goal to score the
game-winner as the healthy crowd of M-A
students and the boys’ water polo team went
nuts.
“It was a very different feel than the
beginning of the game,” Holshouser said.
The beginning of the game saw a landslide first period for Menlo. The Knights
outscored the Bears 4-0 in the opening stanza.
But M-A switched goalies in the second
period, turning to senior Lauren McGinnis

who had not played since the season’s
opening weeks. But McGinnis instantly
found her sea legs to pitch a shutout in the
second period.
“She was great,” Holshouser said. “She
came in after not having played for a while
and performed incredibly. She had some key
blocks … and in terms of where she was
passing the ball after those blocks, she was
helping us spring our offense.”
McGinnis and 2-meter defense Kyra
Sheeper anchored the defense with strong
play.
“We got our offensive bearings at that
point,” Holshouser said. “We started moving the ball and started sending some people (on the counterattack) so we could get
some opportunities from there.”
Menlo was paced by two goals apiece
from three different players — Parker
Callender, Sophie Golub and Chloe
Ebrahimian.

Raiders DB ready to go after concussion
By Michael Wagaman
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ALAMEDA — Raiders cornerback
David Amerson is expected to play in
Sunday’s game against Tennessee, one
week after suffering a mild concussion.
Amerson has been limited all week in
practice after getting temporarily
knocked out in the fourth quarter
against the Falcons but told reporters
Thursday he feels fine and is ready to
play.
“I feel fine good. I feel normal, ready
to go,” Amerson said. “It wasn’t really
a blow to the head, I got kind of hit
under my chin so it was more like getting knocked out. I was knocked out for
a minute. With the trainers being on
their job they were being very cautious
of what was going on, what my steps
were after that happened. I’ll be cool.”
Players with concussions are required
by the NFL to pass a battery of tests
before being cleared to play. According
to a Raiders spokesman, Amerson is
still in the protocol but is able to do
some physical work in practice.
That’s key because the Raiders
defense needs all the help it can get to
stop an early season onslaught after
giving up 1,035 yards in the first two

games. According to
Pro
Football
Reference, Oakland
is the first team
since the 1967
Falcons to allow
500 yards or more in
each of the first two
games.
David Amerson The Raiders rank
31st in points
allowed and last in total defense and
pass defense.
Much of the problem has centered
around Oakland’s secondary, which
underwent a makeover in the offseason.
Cornerback Sean Smith was signed to a
$38 million contract, free safety
Reggie Nelson was lured away from
Cincinnati as a free agent and the team
used the 14th overall pick in the draft
on safety Karl Joseph.
Yet both Drew Brees of the Saints and
Matt Ryan of the Falcons had field days
while finding gaping holes in the
Raiders’ coverages. The two quarterbacks combined to pass for 819 yards
and seven touchdowns while being
intercepted once.
Joseph has played exclusively on
special teams but will see time on
defense this week against the Titans.

“We have high expectations for
Karl,” defensive coordinator Ken
Norton Jr. said. “Practice is that place
where you get better. You really have to
be competitive in practice. We don’t
know exactly how much he’s going to
play, but you’re going to see him play.”
Amerson’s concussion was his third
since entering the NFL as a secondround pick by Washington in 2013. He
was injured late in the game while trying to make a diving stop on a 13-yard
touchdown by Atlanta’s Tevin
Coleman.
The blow temporarily knocked
Amerson out, and after being examined
by trainers, he was pulled from the
game. Amerson appeared fine afterward
but was put in the concussion protocol
as a precaution.
At a time when concussions are forcing some NFL players into early retirement, Amerson said he hasn’t even
thought about it.
“I’ve been kind of fortunate,” he said.
“I’ve had some concussions but I don’t
think I’ve had any that have been very
severe or crazy to where I think it’s
career-ending. It’s just been little minor
stings, maybe getting knocked out a
play or something like that. I’m fine. I
don’t feel any different.”

Kelly: Kap highlighting an
issue that needs addressing
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SANTA CLARA — San Francisco 49ers coach Chip Kelly
said Thursday that Colin Kaepernick’s protest during the
national anthem is bringing attention to an issue that needs
addressing.
“You look at what’s gone on in Tulsa and Charlotte the last
two nights, it’s an issue that’s at the forefront of our country,” Kelly said. “It needs
to be addressed, it needs to be taken care of.
Because what’s going on is not right. So, I
think, again, (Kaepernick) is shedding
light on the situation that is heinous and
shouldn’t happen in this country. We all
have inalienable rights as a citizen of this
country. They’re being violated and that’s
what I think Colin is standing up for.”
Chip Kelly
The 49ers’ backup quarterback became a
polarizing figure when his protest became
public following a preseason game against
the Packers on Aug. 26, when he sat on the
bench during the national anthem in protest
of racial oppression and police brutality.
Kaepernick has since begun kneeling during the anthem instead of sitting and has
been joined by several other NFL players
and scores of high school and college players who have picked up the cause.
Colin
Kaepernick has also pledged to donate $1
Kaepernick
million to organizations supporting his
cause of racial equality.
Despite Kaepernick’s position at the center of the broadening protest, Kelly said the quarterback hasn’t had problems
handling his responsibilities as the backup to starter Blaine
Gabbert.
“He’s at every meeting. He’s done everything,” Kelly said.
“He understands what his job is and he’s balanced it really well.
I think he’s managed it really well. He’s focused, he’s dialed in
when we’re at practice, he’s dialed in when we’re in meetings.”

Aragon and Burlingame are burning up the PAL’s Ocean
Division so far this season, with a combined 8-1 record in
league play. Mills and Hillsdale, which were moved up to the
Bay Division this season, are struggling as they both are
still in search of their first Bay Division wins, but have
shown enough over the last couple of seasons that they are
programs on the rise. Los Gatos and Monta Vista are both
strong programs that annually qualify for the CCS postseason.
Unlike many sports, water polo’s non-league schedules
are filled with tournament games played throughout the season. Greene said the reason for this is it is difficult to fill a
24-game schedule when Serra and the teams in the PAL Bay
Division, for instance, play just six league games. That
leaves 18 more slots to fill. For the top teams in the Central
Coast Section, those are made up against elite competition,
but many of the teams in the PAL, specifically, stay away

way to get games in and get quality competition to prepare
for league play. The CCS-NCS Challenge is not the place for
many of the teams from the PAL to accomplish that.
The Serra tournament is.
“[Tournaments] are really practice to get ready for league,”
Greene said. “You want to improve and you need the games.”
Greene, who is also runs Golden State Aquatics club program, said the sport of water polo is growing around the
county and many of the teams are starting to see club players — those who play year-round — starting to trickle in
more frequently. Many PAL teams may not have enough
high-level players to compete with the CCS big boys, but it
seems nearly every team has at least a couple of players who
have significant playing experience.
“All of the (high school) programs are bigger,” Greene
said. “I have kids from all these high schools (around here
playing for my club teams).”
And the demand for a tournament of Serra’s caliber is growing. Greene said he plans to expand the tournament to 16
teams next season and will work with another school to offer
a secondary site for the tournament.
“The waiting list is a long one,” Greene said.

NDB outbrawls Menlo in five-set WBAL thriller
By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The WBAL just turned into a brawlers’
league.
It took just one week of West Bay Athletic
League Foothill Division play to glimpse
the new tone of the league with Notre DameBelmont making the conversion from the
West Catholic Athletic League this season.
NDB (2-0 WBAL Foothill, 12-4 overall)
faced its first test against defending fourtime league champion Menlo School with
the Tigers going the distance to win a fiveset slugfest 27-29, 25-10, 25-18, 18-25,
15-13 at Moore Pavilion.
The Knights (1-1, 14-5) got a quick taste
of how hard a hitter NDB outside hitter Katie
Smoot is. The senior took it to Menlo with a
match-high 24 kills, including eight in a
Game 2 landslide. But Smoot’s most ferocious smash of the night came in Game 3
when Menlo setter Kristin Sellers got lit up
with a shot to the face that forced her off the
floor with a bloody nose.
“[Smoot hits] insanely hard,” Sellers said.
“She deserves everything she gets because
she hits amazingly hard.”
Sellers’ reaction to the play encapsulated
Menlo’s gritty performance in a nutshell.
The junior hopped to her feet and lobbied to
stay on the court despite the stream of blood
running down her face. Then after she was
forced to take a break, she multitasked by
applying a tissue to stop the bleeding while
insisting to Knights assistant coach Tony
Holland that she was OK to return to the
match.
“I just wanted to be in as much as possible
and win that set,” Sellers said.
While Sellers was off the floor for nearly
an entire rotation to make certain she didn’t
have a concussion — she didn’t — Smoot
was busy taking control of the match. The
senior’s performance in Game 2 had already
proven an equalizer, as the Tigers drew even

after Menlo won the opening set.
And with Sellers departing amid a 6-5
Menlo lead in Game 3, Smoot stepped to the
service line and fired back-to-back aces —
two of her match-high seven aces — to
swing NDB into the lead. Her rocket serve
proved the spark the Tigers needed as senior
middle Mele Fakatene followed with a fierce
kill off middle, and senior outside hitter
Tammy Byrne punctuated Smoot’s four-point
service run with an epic block to put NDB in
the driver’s seat.
The Tigers never again trailed in the set.
“When [Smoot] is on she’s definitely a
spark for the entire team,” Baumann said.
“But when she’s down we can help get her
right back in the game.”

the one Baumann gave that helped keep the
Tigers’ foot on the accelerator. Midway
through Game 2, Baumann followed a pancake dig by senior Gianna Susa with an allout running bump to deliver a pass for
Smoot to knock it over. On the following
point, Baumann sprinted in with a knee slide
under middle net to bump a pass up for Smoot
who crushed off the left side for a kill.
Smoot said the motivating factor was a
pep talk from NDB head coach Jen Agresti
following a loss in extra points in the opening set.
“I think in the first set we didn’t play well
as a team to be honest,” Smoot said. “But
once Jen screamed at us it was what we needed to step in up.”
Menlo is notoriously one of the best in
town when it comes to using sharp defense
and passing to transition into its offense.
Baumann said NDB was just trying to follow
suit.
“I think we were responding to what they
were doing,” Baumann said. “Just keep every
point going. We didn’t let a ball hit the
ground at times. So that helped.”
Menlo got a team-high 12 kills from
sophomore setter Selina Xu while senior
middle Mia Vandermeer added 10. Junior
opposite Ashley Dreyer had nine kills, but
was a non-factor on offense through the
opening three sets. When the left-hander got
going off the right side in Game 4, however,

she was a force to be reckoned with.
Six of Vandermeer’s kills came in the
fourth set as the Knights earned some daylight on the scoreboard early. Tied 8-8,
sophomore Sianna Houghton tabbed a kill
on an overpass to give the Knights the lead
for good, and they continued to add on showcasing their right-side firepower.
“We are designed to cheat more in the middle and to the right,” Menlo head coach
Marco Paglialunga said. “But this match
more than others we thought we could attack
on the right side.”
Game 5 saw Menlo continue to fight back.
NDB led by as much as 4, and held a 9-6 lead
when the Knights made a run behind Xu’s
right-side attack. Menlo tied it at 10-10,
then kept close with a 12-11 deficit on Xu’s
final kill of the match. NDB forced match
point at 14-12 on a Smoot kill. A Menlo
block by Vandermeer prolonged the match
but only for a point as Smoot put away the
win when she found middle court with a fade.
Byrne added 12 kills and Fakatene 10 for
NDB, while setter Kristine Gese totaled 57
assists. Junior libero Kat Ho had a teamhigh 14 digs and Susa added 10.

Sacred Heart Prep 3, Harker 2
SHP (2-0, 13-5) kept pace with NDB atop
the Foothill Division standings in a five-set

enough to say I would hate to have to coach
against him.”
Through Campos’ brief quarterbacking
career, all he has faced in PAL opponents. The
Dons first four non-league games were all from
the PAL’s lower league, including San Mateo
and South City of the Ocean Division, and
Carlmont and Jefferson of the Lake Division.
While the Dons have a good amount of
returning players, many of those returners are
still non-seniors, such as the junior Campos.
“Returning but young,” Sell said. “We had
more freshmen and sophomores (in last year’s
Central Coast Section playoff loss) against
Palma than seniors.”
One senior anchoring both sides of the ball,
however, is standout Siua Tongamoa — a similar mold as his older brother, now-graduated
Bubba Tongamoa — who plays both running
back and defensive back.
Tongamoa didn’t see much action on offense
last year because the Dons had little depth at
linebacker. In transitioning to the secondary
this season, along with Aragon having more
defensive depth, Tongamoa figures to see
plenty of reps out of the backfield.

Burlingame 3, Half Moon Bay 0
Burlingame (4-0, 10-7) remained unbeaten in Bay Division play with a 25-15, 2510, 25-20 win over Half Moon Bay (1-3, 98). Kyra Novitzky paced the Panthers with

Report: Bullying widespread among district’s athletes
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — An investigation
launched after a freshman high school player
in Tennessee was attacked by three teammates
at a holiday basketball tournament has
revealed “widespread, systemic problems
going unaddressed at every level” in his county’s public schools.
The county’s district attorney and sheriff’s
office jointly investigated allegations of hazing and bullying on Ooltewah High School’s
basketball team, and found problems on a
much wider scale. Their report released
Thursday says “permissive coaches” and “an
apathetic administration” allowed a culture of
bullying to spread around the county.
The investigation was launched in January,
days after Gatlinburg police said three
Ooltewah players assaulted a freshman teammate with a pool cue on Dec. 22. In juvenile
court last month, one was convicted of aggravated rape and aggravated assault, and the other
two were found guilty of aggravated assault.
“From the moment the basketball coaches
drove the team out of town without Board

barrels past shuttered businesses on Main
Street, a highway heading into the Coastal
Range to the west. Corvallis, home to
Oregon State University, lies 3 miles (4.8
kilometers) to the east.
The town formed around Philomath
College, which existed from 1865 to 1929.
Its name is Greek for “lover of learning.”
Philomath has little in the way of entertainment, and several people said the loss
of the football season will be a blow.
“It’s a little bitty town, and there’s not
much else to do, so there was usually a pretty big turnout there,” said Rhonda Lewis, a
waitress at the C D & J Cafe, on Main Street.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen
now.”
Pastors representing seven churches have
made themselves available “to listen, pray
for and offer counseling to local students,
parents and school district personnel,” said
Jim Hall, senior pastor of Living Faith
Community Church. They’ve had conversations with a broad spectrum of townspeople, Hall said.
The school district contracted an independent investigator, Goff said. That probe
is ongoing. The Oregon State Police also
investigated, because the incident happened
at a state-owned camp.

approval, the system failed,” the report says.
“There was failure to adequately supervise
the students, failure to recognize the significance of the horrific injuries suffered during a
rape, failure to notify the victims’ parents,
failure to provide a swift and appropriate
response to the attacks, and failure to assure
the public that proactive measures would be
taken to address the root causes of these failures.”
Many of adults referred to in the report are no
longer working in the county’s schools. Kirk
Kelly, the interim superintendent, said in a
statement that the board “will determine additional steps as we continue to improve our district.”
“We have already made significant changes
in our district over the past six months, including new and stricter policies, stronger training
for our employees about abuse reporting, and a
more comprehensive approach to crisis management and communications,” Kelly said.
“However, the report may provide us an additional opportunity to enhance our practices,
provide better support and safety for all students moving forward.

“While this has been a difficult time for
many, I believe we will be better positioned in
the future by having taken the right training
path, creating greater awareness of appropriate
behavior and encouraging the sharing of timely information.”
According to the report, the team’s coach,
Andre Montgomery, “attempted to grossly
minimize the situation” and “attempted to
cover up the crimes.” The report says
Montgomery told players to keep quiet and not
inform their parents.
Montgomery was indicted in May on four
counts of failing to report child sexual abuse.
His lawyer, Curtis Bowe, said Thursday he hadn’t seen the report and declined further comment.
The report says authorities widened their
investigation after fielding complaints about
other bullying at Ooltewah and other Hamilton
County schools. They found that neither
Ooltewah High officials nor central office
administrators at Hamilton County acknowledged the seriousness of the Dec. 22 case.
And it says “there is no indication” that Rick
Smith, the Hamilton County schools superin-

tendent at the time, took his duty to manage
the situation seriously. It says that Smith
failed to communicate the gravity of the situation to School Board members or the public.
The report says Hamilton County
Department of Education has a “glaring lack of
training” on how to handle these types of incidents. And it states that Ooltewah athletes
“continue to display bullying and threatening
behavior.”
This report comes one month after a separate
investigation commissioned by Hamilton
County school officials said that Ooltewah had
“a culture of hazing and bullying” even before
the Dec. 22 attack.
Meanwhile, the victim filed suit on Sept. 9
against his former coach, the former vice principal and athletic director, the former principal
and the county’s board of education, accusing
them of knowingly ignoring the abuse of athletes.
The lawsuit alleges that Montgomery told
players after the assault, “We’re a family and
what goes on in the family stays in the family.”

Benton County District Attorney John
Haroldson said 11 freshman players had
intimate parts of their bodies targeted during an initiation.
In court Thursday, one of six upperclassmen charged with misdemeanors pleaded
guilty to harassment. As part of his sentence, he will speak out against hazing and
stand up for the victims.
Haroldson, who advocated for the term,
said victims are being blamed for the football season’s cancellation and some students’ expulsions, and instead should be
recognized for their courage.
The hazing existed for years, “instilled as
part of the institution,” and had gotten
worse, Haroldson said.
“The coaches didn’t stop it,” he told
Circuit Court Judge Locke A. Williams.
“They chose not to stop it or couldn’t stop
it.”
The judge noted hazing isn’t isolated to
Philomath and said there must be an “understanding that this is a practice that cannot
continue.”
A 22-year-old volunteer assistant coach
stands charged in the county where the hazing occurred. All the coaches are on leave,
Goff said.
The decision was made to cancel the varsity season after other athletes and coaches
evaluated the readiness of eligible players.
The junior varsity season remains on track.
Brittany Dryden, manager of Wilson’s
NAPA Auto Parts store, feels the cancellation is “a little harsh.”

“I understand people make mistakes ...
but I don’t see why we have to punish the
whole football team, and punish other people that weren’t involved, had nothing to do
with it,” Dryden said. “It’s just not fair to
those kids.”
Goff has a rebuttal: “High school football
in Philomath is important, but it is not as
important as our kids.”
Hazing might be part of human nature,
and “it definitely goes back to ancient
Greece and Rome,” said Susan Lipkins, a
psychologist and an expert on hazing.
Victims take the experience to college and
the military, primed to be hazed again and
again, Lipkins said in a telephone interview
from Port Washington, New York.
Over time, they often become perpetrators, feeling they “have the right to do unto
others what was done to them,” Lipkins
said.
Ending the cycle requires breaking the
silence.
Philomath seems to be handling its case
right so far, Lipkins said. To prevent hazing, schools must encourage victims to
come forward, using clearly established
methods like the internet and even reporting abuse anonymously so they aren’t
labeled wimps.
But few high schools and colleges follow
through on promises to eliminate hazing,
Lipkins noted.
“They react,” she said. “They don’t prepare for it and don’t have a system in place
in any meaningful way.”

NASCAR Hall of Fame
damaged in Charlotte protests
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The NASCAR Hall
of Fame in downtown Charlotte was open
Thursday, hours after its exterior was damaged during violent protests over the police
shooting of a black man this week.
The Charlotte Regional Visitors
Authority oversees the NASCAR Hall of
Fame building and the convention center
next door.
“The damage at our CRVA venues consists
of broken exterior windows at the Charlotte
Convention Center and NASCAR Hall of
Fame and a breach that took place at one of
our tenant spaces at the NASCAR Hall of
Fame,” said Laura Hill White, director of
communications for the CRVA.
The breach on the property was to a
restaurant connected to the Hall of Fame.
The $160 million Hall of Fame museum
opened in 2010 and is part of a complex that
includes the office tower for NASCAR’s
Charlotte headquarters.
Hill said both the Hall of Fame and
Convention Center had events scheduled
Thursday and nothing had been canceled.
“The safety of these meeting attendees
who have traveled significant distances to
convene in Charlotte is especially important to us, and we’re working to take appropriate security precautions,” she said.

Samardzija deals to
lead Giants past S.D.
By Bernie Wilson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN DIEGO — Fighting for a
postseason berth, Jeff Samardzija
and the San Francisco Giants
finally figured out the pesky San
Diego Padres.
Angel Pagan’s single broke a
scoreless tie in the eighth and
Samardzija struck out nine in
seven innings for the Giants,
who beat the Padres 2-1 on
Thursday night to keep pace with
the New York Mets for the NL
wild card lead.
The Mets and Giants took a
half-game lead over the idle St.
Louis Cardinals in the wild card
race. New York beat Philadelphia
9-8 in 11 innings.
San Francisco continues to
trail Los Angeles by six games in
the NL West, but the Dodgers
reduced their magic number to
four by beating Colorado 7-4.
The Giants faced a Padres lineup
that included five rookies, three
making their big league debut.
The Giants snapped a six-game
losing streak to the Padres, who
have been their nemesis during
their second-half skid. The Padres
swept the Giants at San Francisco
last week and in San Diego in the
first series after the All-Star
break. The Giants had swept the
Padres three times in the first two
months of the season.
Samardzija joined the Giants as
a free agent so he could pitch in
games like this.
“It’s great, that’s why I signed
up to come over here and play,
was to be playing in September,
important games in September,”
he said. “That’s why we play this
game, to compete at the highest
level, and with the most on the
line.
“I tried to hang in there in the
game long enough and then we
squeaked on through there in the
eighth. It was a nice way to end
it.”
Samardzija (12-10) allowed
four hits in seven scoreless
innings, and walked none.

Giants 2, Padres 1
“He’s a horse,” manager Bruce
Bochy said. “That’s obviously
part of the deal, what intrigued us
about him, his stuff and how
strong he is. He’s really good,
throwing the ball well right now,
all his pitches locating. Gave us
what we needed.”’
Joe Panik, who had been in an
0-for-24 slump, doubled to rightcenter opening the eighth
against Christian Friedrich (511). His fly ball ticked off the end
of rookie Hunter Renfroe’s
glove, hit the ground and
bounced over the fence. Kelby
Tomlinson, pinch-hitting for
Samardzija, singled to left to put
runners on the corners and chase
Friedrich. Brad Hand came on and
induced Eduardo Nunez to hit into
a force, with Panik holding at
third. Pagan then hit a blooper
that landed just fair and brought
in Panik.
Renfroe fielded Panik’s blooper
and made a strong throw, but first
baseman Wil Myers cut it off.
“Since there was no other play
there, Wil probably wants to let
that ball go, ” manager Andy
Green said. “I think he’d say that
right now. I don’t think we’re
accustomed to Hunter Renfroe’s
arm yet. That is a very unique
play to see a ball drop on the line
like that and see a guy coming up
firing like that. I don’t know how
far up the line it was going to be
to Hedgy (Austin Hedges), but I
thought it was going to be close
enough to be an interesting play
at the plate. ... There’s some arm
strength there.”
Hunter Pence doubled with two
outs to bring in Nunez.
Padres
pinch-hitter
Alex
Dickerson homered off Derek Law
with one out in the eighth.
Sergio Romo pitched the ninth
for his second save in as many
chances. Schimpf doubled with
one out before Renfroe popped up
to first base and fellow rookie
Carlos Asuaje grounded to short
to end it.

Golden milk is
a sweet treat
By Meera Sodha
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Ayesha Curry says the recipes are quick, easy and accessible. Some reflect her multicultural background — her mother is
Jamaican and Chinese and her father is black and Polish.

Winning in the kitchen: Curry
cooks up career with new book
By Mesfin Fekadu
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — Ayesha Curry remembers the first meal she cooked for her
ultra-popular NBA player-husband
Stephen Curry: a baked chicken dish.
But the meal Stephen whipped up for
his chef-wife wasn’t as tasty.
Or edible.
“The one time he cooked for me, it
was awful. It was salty, cream of wheat,
gushers lined up on a plate as garnish,”
Ayesha, 27, said in an interview
Tuesday. “It was cute, but I couldn’t eat
it.”
Ayesha said the Golden State
Warriors point guard loved the first
meal she made, which included “his
dad’s famous seasoning.”
“So maybe that’s the reason why
we’re still married,” she laughed. “I
don’t know. I hope it’s more than
that.”
Food has played a large part in the
family’s life — and Ayesha’s career.

She just launched her first cookbook,
“The Seasoned Life” (Little, Brown and
Co.), and she cooks all the meals for
her family — including daughters
Riley, 4, and Ryan, 1 — without the
help of a chef.
“No discredit to the people that do —
I’m always watching and looking on
social media at the stuff that they make
— but at home I think I’m so prideful
with my food and so I make everything,” she said.
For the book, she also worked independently: “I food styled and cooked
all the food for the photos myself, so
it was just the photographer and I.”
Ayesha says the recipes are quick,
easy and accessible. Some reflect her
multicultural background — her mother is Jamaican and Chinese and her
father is black and Polish.
“It’s a big part of the way I cook, the
way I flavor my food, and I think it
helped me growing up to be able to
play around with my food and experiment,” she said.

Ayesha said she turned to food professionally after starting her cooking
blog.
Some of the standouts in her book
include her Mama Alexander’s brown
sugar chicken, Stephen’s five-ingredient pasta (for game days) and her
honey-peppered cast-iron biscuits.
She came up with her “pancrepes” by
accident.
“I just threw stuff together, put it in a
pan and then realized I left out the
thickening agent, what was going to
fluff that pancake up, and it was the
consistency of a crepe, but they were
so delicious,” she said. “The whole
family loves them. They’re great. It’s
my happy accident.”
She says she enjoys cooking with
her daughters, and getting Riley
involved has helped expand her
palette: “The way that I get her to try
stuff is by making it with me because
then she’s seeing what’s going into

With fashion week swirling from New York to London,
Milan and Paris, one can’t help but think about ingredients
that are in vogue.
Turmeric, the day-glow Indian spice, is one of the hottest
ingredients around at the moment — and turmeric latte, or
“golden milk,” is a delicious recipe for incorporating it
into your diet.
A mild spice, turmeric in its powdered form can be added
to most things unobtrusively. At home, when cooking
Indian food, we use it in its powdered version in every main
meal a quarter of a teaspoon at a time. In small quantities,
you barely notice the flavor. It’s mild, mellow and earthy.
Infused into warm milk, like in this turmeric latte, it
tastes sweet and zingy. For me (and many Indians), it is the
taste of childhood, of a few days off school, tucked up in bed
and being looked after.
But now, I need no excuse, I drink it first thing in the
morning for a jolt of sunshine or last thing at night for a
soothing evening drink. It’s even good cold, as a milk-

inspiring, it sounds like a made-for-Disney
movie: A young, illiterate girl from the
streets discovers a natural gift for chess, and
with the help of a caring coach, she develops the skills and self-confidence to
become a champion. The real Phiona Mutesi
is a national hero and educational leader in
Uganda who’s on her way to becoming a
chess grand master.
Played onscreen by magnetic newcomer
Madina Nalwanga, the Queen of Katwe’s
story begins in 2007. Her father has just
died and her mother, Harriet (Lupita
Nyong’o), can barely keep the family fed.
They can’t afford school, so Phiona spends
her days fetching water for the family and
selling corn in the streets. One day, she fol-

lows her little brother Brian (fellow firsttime actor Martin Kabanza) to an old church
where some other kids from the slums are
learning to play chess. Coach Robert
Katende (David Oyelowo, perfect as always)
invites shy Phiona to join. She’s a natural,
and her aptitude inspires him to enter the
group in competitions.
As in many chess/underdog films, these
tournaments are where kids from the wrong
side of the tracks get to see how the other
half lives. Suddenly, the Katwe kids — all
played brilliantly by local children — are
envious and insecure.
The film ticks off the years and the tournaments as Katende encourages and Phiona
improves, despite her mother’s disap-

proval. To Harriet, chess is a distraction
from selling corn.
The screenplay by William Wheeler at
times borders on the trite — “Sometimes
the place you are used to is not the place you
belong” — but the film is anchored by its
colorful setting and solid performances by
the entire cast. It’s easy to become absorbed
in Phiona’s struggle in Katwe. Knowing she
becomes a champion doesn’t diminish the
thrill of her journey.
“Queen of Katwe,” a Walt Disney Studios
release, is rated PG by the Motion Picture
Association of America for “thematic elements, an accident scene and some suggestive material.” Running time: 124 minutes.
Three stars out of four.

her daughter’s popularity.
“It’s a little bit intimidating I think as a
mom, a little bit scary ‘cause the intentions weren’t there for that to happen, but
we’ve kind of taken it on and taken it for
what it is because if you have a gift to make
people happy the way that she’s made people happy, I mean that’s OK,” Ayesha said.
“She puts a smile on people’s faces so
we’re all right with it.”
Fame has also impacted Ayesha, who,
while being a fan-favorite, has taken some

criticism. Her angry Twitter rant earlier
this year following a Warriors loss during
the finals made her a target (she later apologized). And her wholesome image, while
being lauded by some, has caused others to
use her photos as memes with a holierthan-thou image.
“I think it’s silly. It’s so funny how your
personality and character can be shaped by
other people and not yourself, and I would
just like to say nobody’s perfect. I’m completely normal,” she said.

She’s hoping that her new cooking
show, “Ayesha’s Homemade, ” will help
deliver her true personality. It premieres
Oct. 22 on the Food Network and was
filmed at the Currys’ home in Alamo,
California.
“I tend to be supergoofy and that will
come off on the show,” she said. “I’m just
excited for people to see that I don’t take
things so seriously — life’s too short, so
we’ve got to have fun and make things
easy.”

Remote Alaska clinic goes
modern with telemedicine
By Rachel d’Oro
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The only clinic in one of the
nation’s busiest commercial fishing ports is so remote that
even conventional telemedicine for emergencies has been
impossible for its limited staff — until this week.
Starting Thursday, a new partnership with an Anchorage
hospital will virtually beam critical care doctors 800 miles
away to the emergency room on Unalaska Island, home to
Dutch Harbor.
But instead of transmissions with fiber-optics, which are
nowhere near the isolated Alaska island, the team putting
together the system is relying on satellite technology in
what is believed to be a first in the country for telemedicine.
The clinic, Iliuliuk Family and Health Services, brings to
nine the number of providers served by the electronic intensive care unit at Anchorage’s Providence Alaska Medical
Center.
“We are kind of mix-mashing everything together to try
to make this work,” Sharon Compton, services manager of
the hospital’s eICU office, said after a recent demonstration
of the Dutch Harbor link.
The new system will provide real-time camera links
between emergency doctors and clinic staffers during medical emergencies, such as injuries among the Bering Sea
crabbing fleet made famous by the Discovery Channel show
“Deadliest Catch.”
The idea is to help stabilize patients before transporting
them out of town and to help with triage during major
events like a ship sinking.
From afar, doctors will be able to view X-rays and patient
charts and talk directly with patients on camera instead of
consulting with medics by phone and email.

‘Houshan Revolve’ is on display in ‘Literati Gathering: New Work by Wang Tiande,’
at NanHai Art in Millbrae from Sept. 30 to Oct. 15.
Disabilities Awareness Month. This
year marks the 14th year of the art
showcase, cosponsored by the San
Mateo County Arts Commission and
the Commission on Disabilities.
Local artists with disabilities are provided with an opportunity to exhibit
their extraordinary artwork and talent
to the community in which they live.
The exhibit is located at the Caldwell
Gallery on the first floor of the Hall of
Justice, 400 County Center in
Redwood City. The works may be
viewed 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MondayFriday. Admission is free. Artists with
disabilities who are interested in
exhibiting their artwork can get information at http://smchealth.org/smccod, or by calling 573-2480 or the
California Relay (711) for those who
are deaf, or have hearing or speech
impairments.

enter the smoldering apartment while officers and firefighters worked the scene. She
and her boyfriend had been at a friend’s
home when they heard about the fire
online.
Sandwiched between two other units,
O’Brien’s condominium on Ticonderoga
Drive was first reported to have caught fire
around 10:45 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 16. It
quickly rose to four alarms and has been
estimated to have caused nearly $1 million
worth of damage. O’Brien’s home, which
she shared with her boyfriend, was considered a total loss. Neighbors in the five-unit
building experienced a range of impacts
from minor smoke damage to residents
needing to vacate for more major repairs.
The fire was primarily contained to
O’Brien’s unit, where she’s lived for the
last 19 years and, after having some finan-

cial difficulties, took out a interest-only
mortgage loan. About a year ago, she lost
her full-time job with the American Red
Cross and now works a contract position
with the San Mateo County Election’s
Office.
Now, she’s temporarily living out of a
motel and feeling the sting of the Bay
Area’s housing crisis as she looks for an
affordable apartment that will allow dogs
— their second dog Gil was with the couple
when the fire broke out. O’Brien said she
expects it to be about eight months to a
year before her home will be livable.
Not yet sure where she’ll end up, the hardest part of it was losing Buddy, O’Brien said.
About a year ago, she and Buddy spent a harrowing night cuddled together for warmth
after falling halfway down a beachside cliff
in Daly City. Her boyfriend, who’d fallen to
the beach below, went to get help. Rescuers
arrived around 3 a.m. and took O’Brien first,
a move she now regrets. Shortly after she
was airlifted, O’Brien said Buddy fell further
down the cliff and broke his leg.
“Buddy stayed with me all night on the
cliff and he kept me warm and he kept me
from being so scared and then Buddy fell,”
O’Brien said. “He broke his leg and he’s
probably been in pain ever since. And then
Buddy dies in the fire? It’s not right.”
O’Brien said she was committed to seeing
him get better and put nearly $10,000
worth of veterinarian bills on her credit
card, which she’s still paying off. A sympa-

thetic neighbor started a GoFundMe campaign and O’Brien is thankful for any assistance.
Going to work has been difficult, particularly since her drive to the county Elections
Office on Tower Road overlooks her condominium complex. She’s grateful for the
clothes people have donated, but chuckled
at her luck while pointing to a rash she
developed after wearing a hand-me-down
sweater.
She said nearly all of her possessions are
gone and, having worked for the Red Cross
for more than 12 years, she’s seen others in
her position.
“I’ve met people in the same situation
who are put out of their apartments, or their
homes by fire. People come out and they
just have a couple pictures that are singed.
And I had the greatest empathy, I would go
spend my free time doing what I could to
help others. And now, I’m the one needing
help. It’s weird that way,” O’Brien said.
The cause of the blaze is still under investigation, but fire officials’ theories include
it either being related to a computer that
was left plugged in on a bed or from a cigarette.
She recalled returning home around 8
p.m. after getting off work before heading
out to a friend’s house with her boyfriend.
She brought her dog Gil with her, but opted
to leave Buddy at home as he appeared to
have been having hip problems. It’s rare
they take one dog and not the other, she

said, while emotionally going over the
chain of events from that night.
She and her boyfriend heard about the fire
online and rushed home. O’Brien said she
wasn’t told that Buddy had died in the fire
and, in a frenzy, tried to call for him. She
said the apartment was no longer ablaze but
she tried to enter after police told her to
leave. O’Brien said she suddenly found herself under arrest in the back of a police car
where she sat for about an hour before they
informed her the dog had died.
“I was just crying and praying for Buddy,”
O’Brien said. “Your house is on fire, and
you’re alone in the back of a police car, you
didn’t set your house on fire, it was just devastating to be by myself at that time.”
Moving forward, she’s hoping to find
temporary housing with her other dog Gil
while her home is repaired. She recognizes
that many of her possessions might not be
compensated for as she didn’t increase her
insurance policy over the years — something she urges other homeowner to consider.
Knowing that it will take time to rebuild,
she hopes to at least pay off her credit card
debt from Buddy’s veterinarian bills.
“We just have so much hanging over our
heads right now,” O’Brien said. “I know it
sounds like a lot of money for a dog … but
he was just so loyal.”

Net additional state and local tax revenue
could eventually range from the high hundreds of millions of dollars to over $1 billion annually, according to the LAO.
The proposition’s passage would also
save tens of millions of dollars annually to
state and local governments primarily related to a decline in the number of marijuana
offenders held in state prisons and county

jails, according to the LAO.
Using marijuana in public and driving
while impaired, however, will remain illegal.
The proposition imposes a 15 percent
excise tax on all marijuana sales.

who face enormous barriers to opportunity,” she said. “The In Harmony with
Hope Award reflects the commitment we
at BUILD have to serving our youth and
helping them onto a successful path

Prior to Gordon’s law, the only way for
people to taste highly purified recycled
water was to go directly to a treatment
plant.
Current laws make it difficult for consumers to come into direct contact with
potable recycled water. Even after
going through an extensive treatment
process, it must be injected to replenish aquifers and then pumped out as
groundwater before it can be used for
drinking purposes.
Gordon expects the new law could be
used by places like the Santa Clara
Valley Water District, which provides
samples at its treatment plant; or the
Orange County Water District, which is
using recycled water to replenish
aquifers.
The new law requires the water to
meet or exceed state as well as federal
drinking standards and to go through a
robust treatment process that includes
various forms of filtration, reverse
osmosis and advanced oxidation.
Gordon, who chaired the
Assembly’s
Select
Committee
on
Water
Consumption
and
Alternative Sources, said the
idea to promote recycled
water for potable purposes
came in part from research on
how to diversify California’s
water portfolio.
Recycled water was identified as one of the top alternatives to making the most of
California’s limited resource,
he said.
“Even in our best water
years, California does not
have enough water. So
drought only makes our
problem
worse
and
California needs to look for
alternative sources. And the
cheapest, most convenient
source would be recycled
water,”
Gordon
said.
“Stormwater capture is
another good alternative,
desalination is an expensive

run the nonprofit as part of an effort to
improve her local community.
“Each of us have a vision for how we
want things to be better,” she said. “So
I leverage my special set of skills and
look to who I can partner with to make
a change.”
A former computer programmer,
Speeth said her call to action was
enhanced in the wake of an exchange
with former President Jimmy Carter,
who encouraged her to use her abilities
in communication and collaboration
for good.
“He told me that we should all use our
skills to address problems in unmet
areas,” she said.
Speeth’s foundation offers three
annual grants, funded partially through
a partnership with Wells Fargo and has
donated to 30 Bay Area community
service organizations.
Winners are invited back to an annual
award gala, which Speeth said is beneficial in helping to build a network of
organizations sharing a common interest in improving the local community.
That many people may not recognize
the work done by the foundation is by
design, said Speeth.
“We like to remind people about their
own power to make a difference,” she
said. “We are the elves behind the
scenes. We are less interested in being
known about than people and students
recognizing their potential for being
really wonderful change agents.”
Speeth said a unique component of
this year’s event is that each of the
recipients are founded by women.
Lava Mae transforms former municipal public transportation buses from
San Francisco’s old fleet into a mobile

shower and bathroom platforms servicing homeless populations.
Doniece Sandoval, founder of the
Lava Mae, said in a prepared statement
she was honored to receive the most
recent round of grant funding from the
Elfenworks Foundation.
“We are proud of our commitment to
bringing humanity, innovation and
collaboration to the way services are
provided to those experiencing homelessness through our mobile shower
services and pop-up care villages, and
this recognition will further our efforts
to restore dignity, rekindle optimism
and fuel a sense of opportunity among
those moving through homelessness,”
she said.
Laura
Weidman,
founder
of
CODE2040, expressed a similar sentiment in a prepared statement.
“We at CODE2040 believe the tech
sector, communities of color, and the
country as a whole will be stronger if
talent from all backgrounds is included
in the creation of the companies, programs and products of tomorrow,” she
said. “The In Harmony with Hope Award
reflects the importance of an inclusive
tech industry and helps to amplify the
voices of marginalized communities.”
The company focuses on building
coding and technology engineering
skills among communities of color
throughout the Bay Area.
In all, Speeth said she was proud to
offer financing to a variety of programs
doing so much good work to improve
local communities and offering support
to those in need.
“We value positive partnerships and
the message that they can make a difference,” she said.

alternative and probably should only
be used after we’ve used recycled water
and captured stormwater.”
Gordon, who has championed environmental legislation and will term out
of office this year, knows that more
must be done. He hopes his bill is a
stepping-stone
toward
getting
Californians to become more comfortable with drinking highly purified
reused water and that his colleagues in
the Legislature continue these efforts.
One local supporter of Gordon’s bill,
who has also made headlines for experimenting with uses for recycled water,
is Half Moon Bay Brewery owner
Lenny Mendonca.
Inspired to make a political statement about the drought with an unexpected commodity, the coastal brew
pub began purchasing highly purified
recycled water to use in one of its tasty
coastal concoctions — a specialty version of their Tunnel Vision IPA.
“I think it’s a good way to help people feel comfortable drinking recycled
water, because once people drink it,
and understand it’s fine, that [ick] issue
goes away. That’s why we tried it in
beer, because it’s a product where water

is so central to how it tastes,”
Mendonca said.
The process also taps into the antiquity of brewing beer as a way to purify
water — although the Half Moon Bay
Brewery already uses top-quality ingredients, the first batch was made with
recycled water straight from NASA.
But similar to bottled recycled water,
Mendonca isn’t allowed to sell the specialty beer. Instead, he happily brews
batches to give away for educational
purposes — such as to serve during
conferences focused on sustainability.
Moving forward, Mendonca said he
hopes new laws will be established to
help incentivize agencies to invest in
recycled water infrastructure.
Mendonca and Gordon point to other
countries that have long used recycled
water for potable purposes as a way to
cope with limited resources. With
California still in a drought, they said
now’s a good time to introduce
Californians’ taste buds to it.
“I think the more alternative ways
that people can taste recycled water the
better,” Gordon said. “Having recycled
water used as a source for brewing beer,
I would support that.”

Rouani: Halt on flights over Syria would help radicals
By George Jahn
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

UNITED NATIONS — Iranian
President Hassan Rouhani on
Thursday joined in opposing a call
by U.S. Secretary of State John
Kerry to halt all flights over Syria
in efforts to get relief shipments
through, saying that would only
help Islamic radicals gain ground.
Rouhani
also
alleged
Washington was sowing fear
among financial institutions wanting to do business with his country
as part of the sanctions relief due
Tehran under a deal with six powers
in exchange for curbs on its nuclear
program.
He spoke on the sidelines of the
U.N. General Assembly a day after
the U.S. government gave aviation
giants Airbus and Boeing Co. the
go-ahead to sell aircraft to Iran as
part of the landmark deals under the
nuclear pact potentially worth
some $50 billion.
The outgoing administration of
President Barack Obama is keen to
show that it is honoring the economic terms of the nuclear pact. But
Rouhani said permission should
have been granted months earlier
under terms of the nuclear pact and
criticized the “severe delay.”
Coming during heated Security
Council debate Tuesday, Kerry’s
proposal to halt all flights was met
with disagreement both in Moscow
and even in Washington. Gen.
Joseph Dunford, chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff, told Congress
any grounding of war planes should
exclude American aircraft, and
Russia’s deputy foreign minister
said grounding flights would make
matters worse, a view echoed
Thursday by Rouhani.

Kerry admits diplomacy at impasse
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — The United
States and Russia ended any pretenses Thursday of their cease-fire
for Syria remaining in force after
days of increased violence and the
Syrian military’s announcement
of a new offensive in Aleppo.
“We can’t go out to the world
and say we have an agreement
when we don’t,” Secretary of State
John Kerry said after meeting the

top diplomats from Russia and
more than a dozen European and
Middle Eastern countries.
Kerry’s statement, after three
days of private and public diplomacy on the sidelines of the U.N.
General Assembly, provided an
ominous endnote to a week diplomats had hoped would be a major
capstone toward peace. Instead,
Kerry and Russian Foreign
Minister Sergey Lavrov, who
negotiated the truce two weeks

ago, went their separate ways as
violence in Syria flared up anew
and the relationship between the
two key foreign powers in the
conflict appeared to reach a new
low.
No one spoke of being able to
quickly resuscitate the cease-fire.
While Kerry and Lavrov were set
to hold more talks Friday, even
confidence-building measures
seem beyond their reach at this
point.

Kerry called for a stop to all
flights after an airstrike on a
humanitarian aid convoy this week

that killed 20 civilians. But
Rouhani suggested air strikes
remain the best way of attack on

Islamic radicals.
“If you ground flights,” he said,
“you are aiding the terrorists

whether you like it or not because
the terrorists ... are well equipped
except for an air force.”
Iran strongly backs Assad’s government and Rouhani said the first
priority now should be getting aid
to those in need. The second must
be a continued focus “on the fight
against terrorism,” and the third
should be “to pave the proper path”
to elections including all groups
and political parties in Syria, he
said
Iran complains that international
financial sanctions are not being
lifted quickly enough under the
agreement that stipulates a removal
of these and other penalties
imposed over Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for Tehran’s
agreement to curb atomic activities
that could be used to make a bomb.
Tehran says America is to blame, a
theme Rouhani sounded both in an
earlier speech to the General
Assembly and in his comments to
reporters.
While U.S. financial institutions
remain under tight restrictions as
part of non-nuclear related sanctions, Rouhani said that other
banks complain about confusing
signals from the U.S. Treasury
Department that create a “lot of
doubt” about the legality of doing
business with Tehran.
“As one thing they tell them ‘you
are free to engage with Iran in banking activity,”’ he said. “At other
times, they ... enter the arena with
threats.
“They frighten the big banks,”
he said.
He said restrictions on U.S. companies doing business in Iran as
part of sanctions that remain in
place outside the nuclear deal were
America’s problem.

derailing a cease-fire and lacking
the “will” to fight extremists in
his country.
In an interview with the
Associated Press, Assad rejected
U.S. accusations that Syrian or
Russian planes struck an aid convoy in Aleppo this week and that
his troops were preventing food
from entering the city’s rebel-

held areas. He maintained deadly
airstrikes by the U.S.-led coalition on Syrian troops last weekend were intentional, dismissing
American officials’ statements
that they were an accident.
In Washington, the State
Department countered that Assad’s
assertions were “ridiculous.”
While acknowledging that the

war will “drag on” indefinitely as
long as his opponents were still
receiving external support from
countries like Turkey, Saudi
Arabia and Qatar, Assad said Syria
will bounce back as a more unified
state, and pledged to rebuild the
ruined country and even welcome
back refugees if assistance to the
insurgents were to stop.
