The app is geared toward people
who either work or live in the community, and allows drivers to make
a little extra cash during their regular commutes while riders can
avoid getting behind the wheel.
In an effort to promote the app,
the cities have agreed to help subsidize the cost of rides by guaranteeing carpoolers will only pay $2

Thinking globally and acting locally


Zuckerberg and Chan donate to improve local education, despite global initiative
By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

While Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg


and his wife Priscilla Chan take on the
ambitious goal of seeking to wipe human
disease from the globe, the power couple
also remains committed to granting students in their backyard opportunities for
success.
The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative donated
devices and more than $10,000 worth of
grants to Redwood City school districts
recently in an effort to close the digital
divide among disadvantaged communities,
as well as fund enrichment services and
other programs.
Though the Palo Alto residents recently
received recognition for their announced

intention to donate $3
billion to the fight
toward eradicating diseases, a passion for
improving the quality of
life locally carries on as
well,
said Cristina
Huezo, a spokeswoman
for the Chan Zuckerberg
Initiative.

The Chan Zuckerberg
Zuckerberg Initiative is really committed to working closely to improve education, and what that means for us is to
empower students in local schools and

areas we can help, she said.
In pursuit of that goal, the philanthropic
organization donated more than 400 lap-

tops to students from


underprivileged communities in the Redwood
City Elementary School
District.
The devices are issued
at the beginning of the
school year and are available to students both for
Priscilla Chan learning in the classroom
as well as at home. The
initiative also sponsors coaches to maximize the proficiency of teachers, students
and families when using the computers.
Huezo said the idea of donating the computers came in the wake of meeting with

Hot windy weather


stokes California fire warnings
LOS ANGELES California is facing
hot, windy weather that has triggered warnings about the potential for wildfires and
falling tree branches and power lines.
In Southern California, red flag warnings
signaling critical fire weather are in effect
until Monday afternoon across much of Los
Angeles and Ventura counties and in mountainous areas to the east and south, the
National Weather Service reported on
Sunday.
In Northern California, hot and dry conditions are also expected, prompting officials
to issue an increased fire risk warning for
the North Bay mountains, where strong and
gusty winds are forecast through Sunday
afternoon.
Temperatures could reach triple digits in
some inland areas of Southern California,

where winds could gust up to 45 or 55 mph.


Forecasters said the gusts could down tree
branches and power lines and make driving
difficult. They also said fires could spread
rapidly due to the scorching temperatures,
low relative humidity and gusty winds.
Residents are urged to be extremely careful to avoid igniting any fires and to drink
plenty of water and take extra precautions to
avoid heat exhaustion.
In Southern California, temperatures are
expected to start cooling on Tuesday and
fall further on Wednesday.
In the San Francisco and Monterey Bay
Areas, temperatures are also forecast to
reach as high as 105 degrees, the National
Weather Service said. Temperatures there are
forecast to start cooling on Monday.

Californias famously gridlocked highways
could be doing more than just using energy
they could be producing it.
The California Energy Commission is
investing $2 million to study whether
piezoelectric crystals can be used to produce electricity from the mechanical energy created by vehicles driving on roads.
The commission is in the process of
choosing a company or university to take
on small-scale field tests.
It will study how the small crystals,
which generate energy when compressed,
could produce electricity for the grid if
installed under asphalt.
The $2 million California is using to
test the technology will come from a
renewable investment fund created by the
California Public Utilities Commission.
Bidding will end Nov. 18, and the commis-

sion will award the contract in the spring.

California farmers drilling


wells as groundwater limits loom
SACRAMENTO Farmers in central
California are drilling more and deeper
wells than ever before to pump water for
their fruit orchards and sprawling fields
following government imposed limits on
surface water.
Two years after Gov. Jerry Brown signed
a bill designed to limit groundwater pumping, new wells are going in faster and deeper than ever.
An analysis by the newspaper found
farmers dug about 2,500 wells in the San
Joaquin Valley last year alone, the highest
number on record. That was five times the
annual average for the previous 30 years.
Farmers say they will continue drilling
and pumping because its the only way to
keep their farms afloat.

NEW YORK Five years after Anwar alAwlaki was killed by an American drone

Investigators say a bomb that rocked New

dozen people, was the latest in a long line
of incidents in which the attackers were
inspired by al-Awlaki, an American imam
who became an al-Qaida propagandist.
Federal terrorism charges against the

Obituary

Norman Nutcher

June 27, 1934 - August 17, 2016


Resident of Belmont
A Santa Cruz native and graduate of Santa Cruz H.S. Norman
became a union sheet-metal worker in 1953. In 1979 he was
elected as a business agent for his local union 104, where he
finished his career. Always passionate about the rights of the
working man, his position with the union was a good fit for
him, and he worked tirelessly on many boards to benefit his
union members.
During his career and retirement he enjoyed family vacations, fishing, bowling and golf. As a
fisherman and nature-lover, Norm cared deeply about conservation, wildlife, and the environment,
supporting many organizations who worked to protect the beauty of nature he so loved.
Back on the home-front, Norm did his fair share of partying, and boy! could he jitterbug!
He was the go-to guy for daughter & nieces wanting to partake in this dance from the 50s. In
addition to all those old 50s tunes, Norm was quite a fan of Creedence Clearwater, and we can
all remember dancing with him to the Doobie Brothers China Grove. He was also a huge fan
of Neil Diamond, and his very favorite crooner was Nat King Cole. Dads favorite drink was
The Stinger- which he could tell you is hard to find made right these days.
Norm showed his love by doing, more than talking, but when you did get a chance to really talk
with him, you realized how much he cared, and how much he noticed. He listened to people
with both his ears and his heart, and noticed more than you could ever imagine. He truly saw
and appreciated people for who they really were.
Norm is survived by his wife LoRene, son Brad, daughter Renee and grandson Richard. His
ashes will be scattered near the Golden Gate Bridge (where he caught that very large sturgeon)
in a private ceremony.

MONEY
Continued from page 1
contributions to the tune of nearly
$957,798, according to statements filed
with the cities of San Mateo as well as
Burlingame, and information from the San
Mateo County Association of Realtors, or
SAMCAR.
Thats about 26 times what proponents
for the measures have collected.
That amount is only expected to increase
as ample time remains before the Nov. 8
election when voters in the two neighboring cities will be faced with a choice
should tenant protection measures such as
rent control and preventing evictions without cause become law?
Proponents for San Mateos Measure Q
and Burlingames Measure R, whose grassroots campaigns gathered enough signatures to make it onto the ballot, have collectively raised just over $36,000, according to representatives.
Jennifer Martinez, executive director of
Faith in Action Bay Area which sponsored
Measure Q, said shes not surprised to see
theres big money behind the opposition.
I think it shows whats at stake. And
thats in terms of whos currently making a
lot of money off of the way the housing
market is currently going, and who stands
to lose if that housing market changes in
favor of the people who are actually living
in the home, Martinez said.
Her group has raised about $27,000 to
support Measure Q, while the Burlingame
Advocates for Renter Protections has raised
about $9,172.
It appears San Mateo is in the political
spotlight as the influx of campaign contributions are primarily targeted toward

Measure Q. The SAMCAR-sponsored


Coalition for Housing Equality reported the
majority of its donations with the city of
San Mateo, although representatives said
the money has been raised to oppose both
measures.
More detailed campaign contribution 460
forms are due Thursday, and expected to
more clearly outline which funds are dedicated to which city.
About 225 individuals including residents, landlords and those concerned about
the impacts of rent control, have donated to
SAMCARs coalition, said the groups
spokeswoman Laura Teutschel. Thus far,
theyve raised about $426, 000, with
approximately $174,000 of that coming
from SAMCAR, she said.
I think theres a huge amount of interest
and enthusiasm. Our volunteers have turned
out in great numbers, Teutschel said. Not
only are they donating money, but theyre
donating their time. A lot of these folks are
very concerned property owners, theyre
concerned about the community and what
this is going to cost the cities. Thats
whats driving them.

Whos donating?
The California Apartment Association
has also been pulling in money, reporting
$531,798 as of Friday. Campaign regulations covering this time of year require
donations totaling $1,000 or more that are
received within a 24-hour period be reported.
Of its more than half-a-million-dollar
fund, CAA has contributed about $178,000
to the cause, according to documents filed
with the city of San Mateo.
While SAMCAR and the coalitions funds
are specifically targeted toward fighting
rent control initiatives in Burlingame and
San Mateo, its not yet clear whether a por-

for so long, I think that we forget that
we are starting to see the rents come
down, said Sally Navarro, a property
manager with AVR Realty in
Burlingame. Things are softening up.
Navarro said she is seeing less competition among interested renters for
available units causing property managers to consider taking lower offers for
apartments which previously would
have been snapped up in a hotter, more
constricted rental environment.
Andrew Peceimer, a representative of
Westbay Real Estate Group who manages roughly 60 properties throughout
San Mateo County, expressed a similar
sentiment.
He said the recent building boom
bringing online a swath of new units
particularly in Redwood City and San
Mateo may begin to offer some space in
a market which has been historically
tight.
We are headed toward having an over
supply on the market and rents will go
down, he said. The market will soften.

Whats on the ballot?


There are a few differing technicalities
amongst both measures Q and R. However,
in general the rent control provisions would
apply to multi-family properties built
before Feb. 1, 1995, and seek to cap annual
rent increases at the consumer price index
but by no more than 4 percent. Exemptions
can be made to account for the cost of making improvements to the property. In San
Mateo, rents can go up to 8 percent if a landlord does not raise rent one year but, in
Burlingame, that is not the case.
Just-cause eviction provisions would prohibit tenants from being evicted unless they
break the law or terms of their lease, such as
by not paying rent or engaging in criminal
activity. The just cause eviction measures
could apply to all multi-family rental properties but, in Burlingame, they extend to all
rental properties such as single-family
homes and condominiums.
Each measure would create a rental housing commission that would oversee the
rules in their respective cities. The cost of
the commissions for which estimates
include multi-million dollar annual budgets
would be covered by fees charged to landlords per rental unit, according to the measures.

rates have jumped to 8.8 percent, up
more than 5 percent from the five-year

Average rents for two-bedroom apartments within a 10-mile radius of San
Mateo dipped to $4,040 this month
according
to
data
from
RentJungle.com, down more than $400
from the May peak. Three-bedroom
units are down over the same period of
time from more than $5,700 this summer to about $5,200.
Both Navarro and Peceimer said they
believed much of the residential market
cooling is indicative of a scorching
local economy beginning to slow at the
end of a cycle that has lasted its natural
life of roughly seven or eight years.
Navarro also speculated a ballot brimming with matters of national and local
importance may be pausing both the
real estate market and general economy
while voters wait to see the outcome of
the November election.
To that end, RentJungle.com general
manager Spencer Whitman said he is
seeing a instability in rent trends and
volatility potentially indicative of a
market attempting to figure itself out.
But while local experts feel the market will slow and rents will drop coming out of this holding pattern,

Whitman pointed to similar periods


over the past few years which ultimately gave way to steadily climbing costs.
Prices are likely to go down a little
for the rest of this year, and then we will
probably see prices go up again next
year, he said.
Mike Mele, a data analyst with
RentJungle.com, said he too was reticent to assign meaning to the recent
rent drops as the decline could be
indicative of a greater trend or merely a
temporary blip attributed to a seasonal
market slowdown.
It could mean a lot of different
things, said Mele.
He noted though it would be in the
best interest of those looking for a deal
to sign a lease now while rents have
dropped, to take advantage of either a
general market decline or at least start a
lease at a lower rate.
Whitman agreed, and said he is uncertain the direction the market will head.
Anything could happen, he said.
Based on the trends we are seeing, I
would try to get a lease now if Im worried about price.
Navarro though assumed a much more
skeptical position, as she believed the
decline will continue over the foreseeable future.
It is going to sit like this for a
while, she said.

Clinton as communicator, from


Wellesley to the campaign trail

Road to debate: Trump built


image as he built business
By Nancy Benac
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Donald Trump once


claimed to be publicity shy.
No joke.
Its right there in The New York Times of
Nov. 1, 1976. In the same article, the 30year-old real estate developer talks up his
millions, showcases his penthouse apartment and Cadillac, and allows a reporter to
tag along as he visits job sites and lunches
at the 21 club before hopping an evening
flight to California for more deal-making.
So much for that shy-guy claim.
Young and ambitious, Trump worked just
as hard at building his image as he did at
expanding his real estate empire.
Along the way, he honed the communications skills that would benefit him at the
negotiating table, turn him into a reality TV
star and launch a presidential campaign.
Hell put them to the ultimate test as he
goes one-on-one with Hillary Clinton in
three nationally televised debates over
the next month that will help determine

NEW YORK Hillary Clinton has said it


herself: Shes not the most naturally gifted
public communicator.
I am not a natural politician, in case you
havent noticed, like my husband or President
Obama, she said in March.
Yet her first public speech was a star-making one, landing her in a Life magazine writeup at the tender age of 21. She was a senior at
Wellesley, the first student chosen to address
a commencement there. Unhappy with the
words of the U.S. senator invited to speak
before her, she parried with an unplanned
rebuke, before launching into her prepared
remarks. It was unscripted and rather audacious so audacious, in fact, that the president of Wellesley felt compelled to apologize
to the senator.
Courtesy is not one of the stronger virtues
of the young, wrote Ruth Adams, in a letter
recently unearthed by The Washington Post.
Scoring debaters points seems, on occasion, to have higher standing.

Nearly 50 years later,


Clinton is facing the most
important debates of her
life as she squares off
against Donald Trump
beginning Monday
three high-stakes contests
that could set the momentum for the remainder of
the presidential campaign.
Hillary Clinton
What kind of communicator has she become in
those years since Wellesley, the last 30 or so
in the public eye? That first speech is significant, says Kathleen Hall Jamieson, of the
University of Pennsylvanias Annenberg
Public Policy Center, because it shows how
even a college-age Clinton was able to think
on her feet and jump on the moment a key
asset in a debate.
Clinton also showed, and has honed for
years, a propensity to engage the other side,
to argue and counter-argue like a lawyer,
Jamieson says not surprising, since her
next stop after Wellesley was a law degree at
Yale.

Trump, whod never participated in a
debate before the presidential primaries, is
keeping his preparations for Mondays leadoff general-election debate low key no
mock face-offs or the like.
Really, youre preparing all of your life
for these, he told Fox Business Network
recently. Youre not preparing over a twoweek period and cramming.
Is he ready?
Experts on public speaking find all kinds
of faults with Trumps oratory: His vocabulary is juvenile, his syntax is jumbled, hes
casual about accuracy, hes demeaning, his
voice is thin and nasal, hes weak on policy
details and more.
And yet, Aaron Kall, who directs the
University of Michigans Debate Institute
and debate team, will venture to tell you
this: He performs like a maestro.
Hes a media natural, says Kall, who
edited a book about Trumps primary debate
performances. He really understands audiences and tailors a message to what he
thinks that they want to hear.

Poll shows voter distaste


for Putin-style leadership
By Emily Swanson and Vivian Salma
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Donald Trump has called


Russian President Vladimir Putin a leader
unlike what we have in this country.
But most Americans dont agree with
Trumps assessment of Putins leadership
skills, a new Associated Press-GfK poll
shows.
Only 24 percent of registered voters say
Putin has leadership qualities that would be
good for an American president to share,
while 71 percent say he does not. In fact, a
majority, 56 percent, said they have an unfavorable view of Putin, while only 10 percent said they view the Russian leader favorably.
Voters were split on whether Trump would
be too close to Putin, with 42 percent saying
they think Trump would be too close, and 41
percent saying his approach would be about
right. Fourteen percent think he would not
be close enough.
By comparison, most voters (53 percent)
think Democrat Hillary Clintons relationship with Putin would be about right, while

11 percent think she would be too close and


32 percent think she would not be close
enough.
The relationship between the Republican
nominee and the Russian strongman began
taking on new life when Putin praised Trump
last December as bright and talented and
the absolute leader of the presidential race.
The billionaire businessman hailed Putins
regard for him as a great honor, brushing
off widespread allegations that the Russian
president has ordered the killing of political
dissidents and journalists.

War crimes tribunal for IS detainees lacks support


By Desmond Butler and Lori Hinnant
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON War crimes investigators collecting evidence of the Islamic State


groups elaborate operation to kidnap thousands of women as sex slaves say they have
a case to try IS leaders with crimes against
humanity but cannot get the global backing
to bring current detainees before an international tribunal.

Two years after the IS onslaught in northern Iraq, the investigators, as well as U.S.
diplomats, say the Obama administration
has done little to pursue prosecution of the
crimes that Secretary of State John Kerry
has called genocide. Current and former
State Department officials say that an
attempt in late 2014 to have a legal finding
of genocide was blocked by the Defense
Department, setting back efforts to prosecute IS members suspected of committing
war crimes.

Advertisment

The West looks to the United States for


leadership in the Middle East, and the focus
of this administration has been elsewhere
in every respect, Bill Wiley, the head of
the independent investigative group, the
Commission for International Justice and
Accountability, told the Associated Press.
Officials in Washington say that the
Defense Department and ultimately the
administration were concerned that court
trials would distract from the military campaign. But the diplomats say that justice is

essential in a region whose religious


minorities have been terrorized. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity
because they were not authorized to discuss
the issue.
The U.S. has no legal obligation to take
on the genocide of the Yazidis, but President
Barack Obama has said that preventing
mass atrocities and genocide is a core
national security interest and a core moral
responsibility of the United States of
America.

Development in San
Carlos has got to stop
Editor,
In reading Raymond DeMatteis letter in the Sept. 12 edition of the Daily
Journal (Overdeveloped San Carlos),
I could not agree more.
Once what was the city of good living, is now the city of congested living due to the city governments policy of letting developers do what they
want. It has to stop.
Its all about the money with this
City Council. Havent they heard of
Morgan Hill or Watsonville? Theres
plenty of land there. I now see developers are planning to build a fourstory building at the corner of
Prospect Street and San Carlos Avenue,
which is a very dangerous intersection
with no parking. De Mattei, you are so
right.

Jim Peck
San Carlos

Illogical argument
Editor,
In response to the letter written by
Christopher Conway in the Sept. 12
issue of the Daily Journal, Mr.
Conway is urging his fellow rental
property owners to raise rents in
Burlingame and San Mateo now to the
current market asking price.
Does Mr. Conway realize he just
negated every property owner who
stood before the city councils of San
Mateo and Burlingame who said they
were small complex owners who dont
raise rents as high as they could to
keep good tenants? It would appear
that Mr. Conway hasnt read either
measure, since if Measure Q and R
pass, rents would be rolled back to a
earlier date in 2016? What Mr.
Conway is asking is exactly what
Gordon Robertson did by evicting all
eight tenants on Anita Road in
Burlingame until after the elections so
in the event that they pass, he could
charge outrageous rents for his units.
This is why rent stabilization had to
be placed on the November ballot, to
curtail the greed of owners such as Mr.
Conway and Mr. Robertson. Where are
the fair owners who spoke at the
City Council meetings speaking out
against those owners that are hurting
them?

Those apartments are supposed to sustain me when I can no longer work.
Buying them was difcult and paying
them off was even more difcult.
Problems with tenants and problems
with repairs are endless. These apartments are private property. Yet tenants groups may seize my property
using rent control initiatives measures
Q and R.
Taking control of my property does
nothing to solve the lack of housing
in San Mateo and Burlingame. In fact,
measures Q and R will make the housing shortage worse. Who will buy
rental property under such draconian
measures? Who will build rental property under such conditions? Who can
afford to repair and improve property
when rents are frozen?
Measures Q and R will result in
shabby buildings in poor repair. If I
charged excessive rent, no one would
rent from me. But my units are full,
and the rental agreements are signed
voluntarily and gladly. There is no
coercion. Measures Q and R will give
control of my property to a commission of tenant commissars, and these
commissars will bring penalties and
punishment.
When Benjamin Franklin left the
Constitutional Convention in
Philadelphia, a lady passerby asked

replied, We have given you a republic, if you can keep it.
Well, we have not kept it. A republic
means protection of individual liberties. According to John Adams, private
property is an essential component of
individual liberty. Measures Q and R
abrogate private property and individual liberty. All persons who cling to
the American ethos rather than to
Soviet style abuse should oppose
measures Q and R.

Look for real solutions


for housing problems
Editor,
After reading about the ballot initiative disagreement over Measure R and
Measure Q in the Sept. 21 issue of the
Daily Journal, I am concerned that the
proponents of these measures are
focusing on the divisive issue of rent
control rather than looking at real
solutions to the housing problems in
our community.
Everyone agrees that housing should
be affordable and attainable. But rent
control will not make that happen.
And to make that the focus distracts us
from working on concrete ways to
address our housing problems.
Cities should look at affordable
housing options, homeownership programs and rst-time homebuyers assis-

San Mateos Measure Q


Editor,
This is a poorly written measure
supercharged with emotion.
What we dont know:
1). Percentage of evictions that are
non causal?
2). Percentage of seasoned tenants
that have had their rents raised to market rate?
3). Percentage of tenants that have
enjoyed under market rates for a long
time?
4). What is the current average of all
rents and how do they compare to market rates?
5). As proposed: Who is going to
pay for the rent boards expenses over
and above fees that are assessed to
owners?
6). How will limiting income affect
all renters in controlled buildings?
What we do know:
1). Limiting rent sanctions to building older than those built in 1995 will
affect a disproportionate of mom-andpop owners.
2). Expenses and fees go up annually. The city charges me in excess of
$500 to inspect my re extinguishers
and smoke alarms. The city will not be
cutting those fees will they?
3). Property taxes are raised every
year.
4). Services provided by owners will
suffer. Those providing services will
have their income affected. The gardener that comes every week will be
coming twice a month. The plumber
paid extra for service on the same day
will not be coming, as a cheaper
plumber will be called. So what if he
comes in a day or two.
5). If the rental board needs more
funding than they get from fees will be
paid by the city, that means less
money for public services.
6). Tenants paying under market will
be guaranteed an annual raise regardless of any facts. This is the reality
that this measure is going to produce.

Threat to Bay
Meadows Park

he 12-acre park at the new Bay Meadows development is at risk from two possible city actions.
One is to place a sewage storage tank under the
park to collect water during a storm. The second is to
place a multi-use aquatic center there. Neighbors have
organized to ght the storage tank. But the bigger threat
may be the placement of a major swim center in its midst.
***
There is no question that the city needs extra storage
space during storms when existing pipe capacity is
exceeded. Insufcient capacity can lead to sewer overow
which is bad for the community and the Bay. A Clean
Water Program is currently under review to nd the appropriate place to store a 4.2-million gallon sewage overow
tank. It would be a permanent xture and construction would take from one to
four years. Neighbors of
Bay Meadows Park
expressed their concerns at
a meeting Aug. 25. They
included loss of the park
during construction and
potential health hazards
from sewage odors or venting of toxic fumes; that
placement of the tank
underneath the park would
affect their quality of life
residents do not have traditional backyards and the
park is their open space.
Fiesta Meadows Park is also on the list. And this is not a
good choice either. No park is. Can you imagine placing
such a sewage storage tank under Central Park? There are
other alternatives on the list which seem more appropriate.
***
One of the reasons a big park was part of the Bay
Meadows plan was because the City Council at the time
wanted to ensure that there would be sufcient open space
in a crowded area, similar to the oasis of Central Park in the
urban center. Bay Meadows is almost a small city within a
city with over a thousand units of housing, a large corporate center and retail expected along Delaware Street. It is a
transit-oriented development where people walk or bike to
work, to shop or to the train station to commute. Units are
smaller than single-family homes but a big park is one of
the perks of living there. Currently, the park is unimproved
with about half of it being used for soccer. The other half
accommodates a pick-up baseball game, picnicking or families just enjoying some lawn and a place to stroll in a tranquil environment.
Bay Meadows Park is a remarkable resource for residents
across the city because of its unique, ample open space.
Enjoyed daily by families with strollers, kite yers, dog
walkers, picnickers and many sports, it would be a shame
to compromise it with loss of so much open space as proposed by the parks plan, points out resident Raphael
Reyes.
***
Open space is fast disappearing in San Mateo. And the
little there is, unfortunately, is often vulnerable to development be it housing, commercial or intense recreational
use. Still its hard to understand why a major new water
facility which would include new parking lots in a transitoriented development is being considered. There are pools
at the Peninsula Family YMCA, the Jewish Community
Center, College of San Mateo, Equinox, the 24 Hour
Fitness health clubs. Each high school has a big pool
which could be available for community use in the summer.
The city runs two aquatic facilities, one at Joinville and one
at the Martin Luther King Center. Both are being considered
for upgrading. Wouldnt it make more sense to put a new
aquatic center at either location where it could better serve
the community?
***
Good news that the county and several cities are working
on a plan for a new ice skating rink now that so many private facilities have closed. Creating a new rink is very
expensive, the cost of land and setting up the ice. It seems
so wasteful when an existing rink sits empty at
Bridgepointe. Why doesnt this consortium of interested
parties pool their resources and take over the existing rink?
Its the sustainable answer.
***
Dont forget this weekend Oct. 1-2 11 a.m.-5 p.m. is the
popular Bacon and Brew in Central Park, sponsored by the
San Mateo Area Chamber of Commerce. Its one of the most
popular events in the park so if you have never attended,
dont miss the chance. The event features live music, food
and beer, along with entertainment for kids. Proceeds go to
Samaritan House.

Mortgage exec reflects on housing markets challenges


By Josh Boak
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON From the outside, the


housing market looks solid: Sales are
climbing. So are prices. Mortgage rates are
near historic lows.
But the picture gets more complicated the
deeper you dig into the data. U.S. home
ownership rates have sunk to a half-century
low. And qualifying for a mortgage requires
an all-but-pristine credit score. Which can
make life hard for both would-be sellers and
buyers.
The Associated Press spoke with Rohit
Gupta, chief executive of Genworth
Mortgage Insurance, about todays housing
market.
Why are mo rtg ag e rates s o l o w?
Gupta: Rates have always been tied to
10-year Treasury yields. The yield is the
interest paid on government debt. Concerns
about a global slowdown have caused more
investors from around the world to put their
money in Treasury notes, as has past government stimulus. This has kept rates low.
But the people receiving mortgages also
have better credit records than in the past.
So there is less risk in lending to them and,
therefore, lower rates. Credit gets measured
using a FICO score, with 850 being the
highest. Our average FICO for mortgages is
740 to 750.
Do peo pl e hav e the s tandard 2 0

Unfortunately, there are still borrowers


who dont have the down payment or the
credit score. If you have 10 percent down
with a FICO of 640, your interest rate will
be so high that youre probably going to
just rent.
As more renters come onto the market,
then people who once only had primary
homes are buying houses for rental purposes. This trend reduces the supply of homes
for sale, which means home prices go up.
Can new co ns tructi o n hel p?
Gupta: Builders arent building a lot of
starter homes, in part because of the costs
of regulation and land. Weve had this theory internally that middle class families
would typically buy four homes in their
lifespans: A starter home, an upgrade home,
their vacation home and then, finally, their
retirement home. But this concept of starter
homes is getting tougher and tougher in the
United States.

Negative online reviews are double-edge sword for businesses


By Joyce M. Rosenberg
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK It is a double-edged cybersword: a negative review of a restaurant or


other business, posted for the world to see.
Anyone who peruses Yelp!, TripAdvisor,
Google and companies own websites can
see complaints about bad food, surly sales
associates, late deliveries or defective merchandise. But some business owners, even
when they are chagrined or embarrassed,
regard a bad review as valuable information
that will help them improve.
Jeff Gates, who co-owns eight restaurants
in the Boston area, says online reviews
give him a steady flow of feedback and
likens them to the comment cards few diners fill out. He reads and responds to every
post, and consults with staffers to understand what worked and what didnt.
If multiple people are picking up on the
same issue, thats something we really
want to focus on, says Gates, whose

restaurants include Aquitaine and Gaslight


Brasserie.
Some negative reviews may be
inevitable, especially with a business that
has hundreds of customer interactions each
day. Miscommunications can lead to mistakes, restaurants can be short-staffed and
businesses do fall down on the job.
Gates also looks at whos leaving the
reviews. If theres a pattern of skewering
restaurants, it could be a customer who
cant be satisfied. Jim Turner, who owns
Turners Seafood restaurants in Melrose and
Salem, Massachusetts, says he knows customers who have too much to drink and are
asked to lower the volume will post complaints about how they were treated.
You have to accept that everybody is
going to have that, everybody is going to
have those customers, says Turner, who
responds to each review privately.
Negative reviews can be irritating, Turner
says, but because they point out issues like
poor service, they spur him to address any

Owners who contact reviewers are sometimes able to get a bad review updated and
improved. But even businesses that take a
constructive attitude can find it difficult or
even impossible to get a review removed.
They can appeal to site operators, but most
reviews stand.
Some angry businesses owners have sued
people who wrote the reviews, but unless
they can prove they were libeled because of
false information, theyre not likely to
win. Some businesses have also sued sites
like Yelp!, but also unsuccessfully. Last
week, a federal appeals court ruled against
an owner who contended that Yelp! should
be held responsible for a negative review.
Lawmakers are taking steps to protect
reviewers and review sites. The House has
passed a bill that would prevent businesses
from requiring customers to sign agreements that they wont post negative
reviews. A similar Senate version passed
last year, so the two will have to be reconciled before the measure goes to the president. A law outlawing such agreements
took effect in California last year.

Brandon Gerson, who oversees marketing for Hudson Allergy, a medical practice
in New York, actually considers reviews
part of that strategy. Patients are given
tablet computers and encouraged to write
reviews before they leave the office. If
theyre unhappy with any aspect of the
practice, they get a response.
Shirley George Frazier says shes posted
five negative assessments among about 50
reviews of restaurants, hotels and other
businesses. She says reading customer
reviews help her make informed decisions,
and hopes negative reviews will motivate
business managers to correct the situation.
I expect good service and a good environment and when that goes downhill in
whatever way it does, the room or front
desk or room service, I am absolutely disappointed, says Frazier, who lives in
Paterson, New Jersey.
An owner who gets a nasty or unreasonable review may want to make a snarky
response, but that will only invite more
vitriol, says Darnell Holloway, Yelp!s
director of business outreach. People who
see a contentious exchange may give that
business a pass.

Mills mauled by Mission

Mission 45, Mills 6

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

TERRY BERNAL/DAILY JOURNAL

Mills quarterback Saumane Stanley is met by a host of Mission


defenders in the Vikings 45-6 loss Saturday at Jim Cox Field.

Football is not a game that is played


on paper as evidenced by Mills 45-6
loss to Mission-SF Saturday at Jim Cox
Field.
Entering the non-league matchup,
Mills (4-1) had opened the season with
four straight wins. Mission (1-4) had
lost its first four. But the Vikings were
levied with a key personnel loss when
their starting quarterback was benched
due to disciplinary reasons, causing a

shakeup in the backfield in moving starting fullback Saumane Stanley under center.
Instead of pairing with senior halfback
David Tongilava for a two-pronged
ground attack that led the Vikings to
outscore opponents 149-38 through
their first four games, Stanley had to

The team was just sleeping today,
Tongilava said. We lost some key
players and Mission just brought it
today.
Mills without its regular QB settled for 164 yards of total offense.
That takes away one of our strongest
runners and it allows the other team to
key on [Tongilava], Vikings head coach

Marlins ace killed


Star pitcher Jose Fernandez, 24, dies in boating mishap
By Tim Reynolds and Steven Wine
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MIAMI Jose Fernandez escaped from


Cuba by boat on his fourth try as a teenager,
and when his mother fell into the Yucatan
Channel during the journey, he jumped in and
pulled her out.
Fernandezs heroic backstory made his
death early Sunday that much more heartwrenching. The charismatic Miami Marlins
ace was killed in a boating accident at age 24.
Fernandez and two other people died when
their 32-foot vessel slammed into a jetty off
Miami Beach, authorities said.
Authorities didnt know the time of the
crash. The capsized boat was found shortly
after 3 a.m.
All I can do is scream in disbelief, said
Hall of Famer Tony Perez, a Marlins executive and native of Cuba. Jose won the love
of all. I feel as if I had lost a son.
Major League Baseball released a statement
saying it was stunned and devastated.
He was one of our games great young
stars who made a dramatic impact on and off
the field since his debut in 2013,
Commissioner Rob Manfred said. Our
thoughts and prayers are with his family, the
Miami Marlins organization and all of the
people he touched in his life.
The Marlins game Sunday at home against
the Atlanta Braves was canceled. The Braves,
along with several other teams, quickly
offered condolences.
Hands down one of my favorite guys to
watch pitch! He brought nothing but intensity and passion, Boston Red Sox pitcher
David Price tweeted.
Within hours after the news broke, Marlins
players gathered at the ballpark to grieve
together.
A lot of words were said meaningful
words and emotion and prayer, team president David Samson said. Jose is a member of
this family for all time.

to the masses with a hard-charging style,
charisma and a commoners touch, At ease
with both presidents and the golfing public,
and on a first-name basis with both, The

Alastair Johnson, CEO of Arnold Palmer

Palmer ranked among the most important

beyond his seven major championships and
62 PGA Tour wins. His good looks, devilish
grin and go-for-broke manner made the elite
sport appealing to one and all. And it helped
that he arrived about the same time as television moved into most households, a perfect
fit that sent golf to unprecedented popularity.
If it wasnt for Arnold, golf wouldnt be as
popular as it is now, Tiger Woods said in

Dodgers clinch NL West title in Scullys home finale


By Beth Harris
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES The Los Angeles


Dodgers clinched their fourth straight NL
West title, winning the crown in Vin
Scullys final home game when Charlie
Culberson homered with two outs in the
10th inning to beat the Colorado Rockies
4-3 Sunday.
Culbersons first homer of the season and
just sixth of his career landed in the lower
left-field seats, touching off wild cheers and

a raucous celebration at
home plate. The Dodgers
charged out of their
dugout and surrounded
Culberson, jumping up
and down. They donned
championship T-shirts
and hats from carts
wheeled on the field.
The Dodgers took off
Vin Scully
their caps, turned toward
Scullys broadcasting booth and held them in
a salute to the 88-year-old Hall of Famer, who

has just three games at San Francisco next


weekend before ending his 67-year career.
Under first-year manager Dave Roberts,
the Dodgers became the first NL West team
to win four straight division titles.
Scully began with the Brooklyn Dodgers
in 1950 and is the longest tenured broadcaster with a single team in professional
sports. He was nattily attired in his usual
long-sleeved shirt and tie despite the 95degree heat.
Joe Blanton (7-2) pitched the 10th to get
the victory.

Boone Logan (2-5) took the loss in relief.


The Dodgers provided plenty of drama for
Scully to describe.
Corey Seager homered with two outs in
the ninth off Adam Ottavino, tying the
game 3-all. It was the rookies 190th hit of
the season to go with a single in the first
and triple in the seventh.

Bulldogs defense steps up to down Butte 14-7


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The College of San Mateo defense, after


allowing an early score, scratched and clawed
to hold on for a 14-7 win Saturday at Butte
College-Orovilles Cowan Stadium. With the
win, the Bulldogs improve their overall
record to 2-2.
Butte running back Martin Fleming broke a
56-yard touchdown run just five minutes into
the game to give his team an early 7-0 lead.
Fleming went on to rush for a game-high 205
yards on 23 carries, but CSM outgained Butte
in total offensive yards 415-373.
A pair of Serra alumni sophomore linebacker Daniel Lavulo and freshman defensive
end Kwami Jones helped lead the
Bulldogs defense to eight tackles for losses
including three sacks, one by Lavulo, his second of the year. Lavulo totaled five tackles

and Jones six. The


Bulldogs were paced by
freshmen Elijah Orr and
Colt Doughty with nine
tackles apiece.
Butte had plenty of
chances to catch CSM (22 overall), moving the
ball into the red zone on
Kwami Jones each of its last three possessions of the game.
The first saw the Roadrunners (2-2) facing
third-and-goal from the CSM 5-yard line
when quarterback Clayton Welch completed a
4-yard pass but was fumbled away and recovered by Bulldogs defensive lineman Jelani
Brown with 8:50 to play. CSM went threeand-out and the Roadrunners offense quickly
turned it around to move to the Bulldogs 15,
but a spree on incomplete passes saw Butte
turn it over on downs with 2:54 left.

Bulldogs quarterback
Ryan Brand drove the
team to the Butte 17-yard
line but missed a fourthdown pass attempt to turn
the ball over on downs
with 1:06 remaining.
Butte swiftly drove downfield on a penalty-laden
Welch
Daniel Lavulo possession.
looked to have a 41-yard
touchdown to tie it, but the play was called
back due to offsetting penalties. Three plays
later Welch misfired to have a pass nabbed by
CSMs Deon White, but the Bulldogs were
flagged for pass interference to give Butte a
second life.
With the penalty advancing to the CSM 11yard line, Butte had time for one last play by
Welchs pass was incomplete to end it.
While the CSM defense was pitching a

shutout over the final three quarters, Brand led


his team to two first-half touchdowns to overtake the lead. Brand was 11-of-28 passing for
234 yards and an interception; he also rushed
for an 8-yard score midway through the second quarter to give CSM the lead.
The Bulldogs tied it late in the first quarter
when fullback Sione Finefeuiaki recovered an
offensive fumble in the end zone. The play
was a 53-yard pass from Brand to sophomore
Ramiah Marshall, but Marshall had the ball
stripped near the goal line and picked up by
Finefeuiaki for the score.
Marshall totaled 95 receiving yards on five
catches to pace CSM. Freshman running back
Rashaan Fontenette rushed for a team-high
82 yards on 13 carries.
CSM had one more non-conference tuneup
prior to the start of Bay 6 Conference play, as
the Bulldogs travel to American River
College this Saturday for a 7 p.m. kickoff.

Lady Dons capture title


at Sequoia tournament

Raiders force three turnovers to beat Titans

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Aragon bounced back from its first loss of the season in a


big way, sweeping three games Saturday to win the Sequoia
Girls Water Polo Tournament. The Dons have been to the
championship game of the tourney for three straight seasons, previously claiming the title in 2014.
The Dons held off Notre Dame-Belmont in the championship game for a 16-13 win, fueled by
eight goals from Maria Sell, who totaled
16 goals on the day. Rachel Downall,
Aragons leading scorer on the season,
added five goals in the title game. Senior
driver Olivia Tobin added three goals.
Tobin has made the Dons go all season
as theyve won 10 of their first 11 games,
including six straight to open Peninsula
Athletic League Ocean Division play.
Olivia Tobin While no Most Valuable Player was
named in Saturdays tourney, Aragon
fifth-year head coach Roxanne Tursi said Tobin was the player that made the team go.
Shes just kind of the difference-maker in games for us,
Tursi said.
Downall totaled 11 goals in the tourney while Tobin had
eight, including four in the opener, a 9-7 win over Santa
Teresa. Aragon went on to down host Sequoia 12-9 in Game
2. Dons goalie Sarah Frandsen totaled 44 saves through
three games.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. To Derek Carr,


its time for all the critics to stop picking on the Oakland Raiders defense.
Carr threw for 249 yards and a touchdown, and the Raiders beat the Tennessee
Titans 17-10 on Sunday with their
defense finally coming up with some big
plays.
They won the game for us, Carr said.
That right there was a prime example of
what Ive seen every day in practice.
Thats why I kept saying what I was saying. Its hard to complete balls against
them.
The Raiders (2-1) forced three
turnovers and had a sack after coming
into this game having given up more
yards than any team since at least 1940
through the first two games. Coach Jack
Del made a couple of lineup changes,
starting linebacker Cory James and
rookie safety Karl Joseph, their top draft
pick.
Oakland took control in the second
quarter, scoring 10 points and outgaining the Titans 129-40 to take a 17-3 lead
into halftime.

Raiders strong safety T.J. Carrie


celebrates after defeating the Tennessee
Titans 17-10 at Nissan Stadium.
The Titans (1-2) rallied from a 15-3
deficit a week ago in beating Detroit 1615 , and they thought they at least had
forced overtime when Marcus Mariota
found Andre Johnson alone in the end
zone for a touchdown. But officials
flagged Johnson for interference on
Raiders cornerback TJ Carrie.
If he wouldnt have fell down, it
wouldnt have been called, Johnson
said.
Two plays later, Carrie appeared to
grab Harry Douglas
in the end zone on
the Titans final
play with no flag
thrown. Carr knelt
to run out the clock
as the Raiders
escaped with a win.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said he


needed to watch the tape on some of the
plays.
I need to be careful, Mularkey said.
Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan may
have had the costliest penalty. He apologized to his teammates for an unnecessary roughness penalty that backed the
Titans from the Oakland 3 to the 18 with
50 seconds left.
Tajae Sharpe caught a 19-yard pass and
was being tackled when Lewan flew in to
clean up the pile. Officials flagged him,
costing Tennessee first-and-goal at the 3
with 50 seconds left to first-and-10 at
the Raiders 18. Asked about the penalty,
Mularkey said Lewan and the Raiders
thought the play was still alive.
Everybody but the officials,
Mularkey said.
Mariota turned the ball over three
times, and the No. 2 pick overall in the
2015 draft now has lost three fumbles
with four interceptions already this season. The Raiders turned a fumble forced
by Bruce Irvin into a field goal and a 103 lead. That was all the points the
Raiders got off his mistakes.
Latavius Murray didnt touch the ball
on Oaklands opening drive until he was
handed the ball on the final play. Then,
he ran 22 yards up the middle for a touchdown to put the Raiders ahead to stay.
Carr also tossed a 19-yard TD pass to
Seth Roberts late in the second quarter
against a Tennessee defense that had
allowed only one offensive TD through
the first two games.

Seahawks 37, 49ers 18

49ers routed
by Seahawks

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE Russell Wilson is already dealing with more injuries in the first three weeks
of the 2016 season than the first four years of
his career.
This time, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback
got lucky.
Wilson threw for 243 yards and a touchdown
before suffering a left knee injury and the
Seattle Seahawks rolled to a 37-18 rout of the
49ers Sunday.
Wilson was injured with about 10 minutes to
go in the third quarter getting pulled down
awkwardly on a sack by San Franciscos Eli
Harold.
Harold was called for a horse collar penalty,
but the bigger concern was how he fell on
Wilsons left leg.
Fortunate. I dont think its as severe as it
looked, Wilson said.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll referred to the
injury as a slight sprained knee and Wilson
was set to undergo an MRI to verify the initial
diagnosis.
Wilson stayed down on the field for a few
moments after the injury before walking off.
Wilson missed the first play of his career
because of an injury, but returned almost
immediately and without perhaps the
approval of his coaches to throw one more
pass.
The completion led to the third of Steven
Hauschkas three field goals for a 27-3 lead and
after that Wilsons day was done.
He walked on the field on his own. You
could see all the coaches were like Nobody
told him to do that, wide receiver Doug
Baldwin said. But thats Russell though.
Wilson had a brace placed on his left knee,
and he never saw the field again, giving the
final 1 1/2 quarters of the blowout to rookie
Trevone Boykin.
Wilson finished 15 of 23 passing, including
an 18-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jimmy
Graham. Boykin also threw the first TD pass
of his career, hitting Baldwin on a 16-yard
touchdown early in the fourth quarter.
Baldwin had eight catches for a career-high
164 yards.
It was a big day for Seattles offense that
slogged through the first two weeks, scoring
just 15 points in the first 120 minutes of the
season.
The Seahawks nearly matched that total in
the first 11 minutes of the game thanks to the

first two touchdowns of Christine Michaels
career.
It was amazing. I give all that to my offensive linemen, Michael said.
Getting the start with Thomas Rawls out
because of a shin injury, Michael had TD runs
of 41 and 4 yards on Seattles first two drives,
the first drive taking three plays and just 43
seconds. Michael rushed for 106 yards on 20
carries, the second 100-yard game of his
career.
Carlos Hyde two TD runs in the fourth quarter for San Francisco, but the 49ers had just
five first downs entering the fourth quarter and
missed on their first 10 third-down attempts.
Blaine Gabberts streak of 12 straight games
with a touchdown pass ended as he was 14 of
25 for 119 yards and an interception.
We knew we were going against the most
talented group defensively we were going to
face and knew it was our job specially to convert on third down and we didnt do that, San
Francisco coach Chip Kelly said.

Wilsons injuries
The knee injury for Wilson comes on top of
the Seattle quarterback suffering a sprained
right ankle in the opener against Miami .
Wilson never missed a snap against the
Dolphins and played the entire game last week
against Los Angeles, although his mobility
was limited. Wilson appeared to have better
movement on Sunday, but had only one official run for 3 yards.
Seattle may not have wanted a bye in Week
5, but it could end up being critical for the
health of its quarterback.

Padres rookie rips Giants


By Bernie Wilson

By Tim Booth

Monday Sept. 26, 2016

SAN DIEGO With the NL West won by


the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Giants have six
more games to try to clinch a wild-card berth.
The good news is, they dont have to play
the San Diego Padres anymore.
Rookie Manuel Margot tripled in the seventh inning and scored the go-ahead run on
Wil Myers single as the Padres beat San
Francisco 4-3 to drop the Giants a game
behind the New York Mets in the NL wildcard race.
The Mets beat Philadelphia 17-0. St. Louis
began the day a half-game behind the Mets
and Giants.
A few minutes before this game ended, the
Dodgers beat Colorado 4-3 in 10 innings to
win the NL West title. The Dodgers came into
Sunday seven games ahead of the Giants.
The Padres split the four-game series and
beat the Giants for the eighth time in 10
games since the All-Star break. San
Francisco had swept the Padres three times in
the seasons first two months.
You know its coming, so were battling
for the wild card, said manager Bruce Bochy,
who managed the Giants to World Series
titles in 2010, 2012 and 2014. You know
thats inevitable, that was going to happen.
You understand that, and sure youre always
disappointed you dont win your division,

Padres 4, Giants 3
but right now our focus is
keep trying to win games
and get there and have a
shot at it.
The Giants finish at
home with three games
against the Rockies and
three
against
the
Dodgers.
Myers said the Padres
Manuel Margot didnt necessarily savor
helping ruin the Giants chances at the division title.
The only thing were focused on is playing good baseball, Myers said. Obviously
we want to win every game. Were not going
out there (with) our goal to beat the Giants.
Our goal is to get better and get these
younger guys experience.
Why have the Padres dominated the
Giants, who led the NL West by 6 1/2 games
at the break?
Weve just played better baseball, Myers
said. I feel weve been pretty good here in
the second half. I think weve done a lot of
good things and I like where our teams at.
Margot, called up Wednesday from Pacific
Coast League champion El Paso, tripled to
right center off Cory Gearrin (3-2) with one
out in the seventh and scored on Myers single.

As trounce Rangers to avoid sweep

OAKLAND Jharel Cotton is off to a historic start to his career with the As.
Hes still not satisfied.
Cotton pitched seven crisp innings and the
Athletics beat the Texas Rangers 7-1 on
Sunday to avoid a series

to start his career with four
consecutive starts of five
innings or longer while
allowing one earned run or
less.

no runs, he said. I feel
like in all my starts I give a home run, but
theyre good hitters, big league guys.
Ryon Healy had three hits, including a tworun homer, and Stephen Vogt drove in three
runs to help the As win after being shut out in
back-to-back games.
Cotton (2-0) struck out five and allowed

As 7, Rangers 1
three hits and no walks. He faced two over the
minimum while quieting the Rangers potent
offense, and threw just 70 pitches.
I guess I have surpassed my own expectations, but just coming to ballpark in the big
leagues and just going out there and seeing who
I am, its fun to see for myself, Cotton said.
Oakland had lost the first five games on
this homestand. The As avoided their first
winless homestand in Oakland history.
I was nervous coming into today, As
manager Bob Melvin said. That wouldve
just been a cherry on top of a bad season. Its
nice to be able to go out there and score some
runs and have a good-feeling game.
(The fans) all stayed for the entire game,
theyre all waving and staying afterwards to
wish us farewell and so forth. Its a great
group of people and Im glad we won today
for sure.

good job of blocking the back side.
Mission, meanwhile, had previously scuffled to settle in to the complexities of a newly
installed wing-T offense. But senior quarterback Niamey Harris showed more than capable
of making the transition to the new scheme of
first-year co-head coach Lamar Williams, previously the Bears offensive coordinator.
Harris racked up 336 yards of total offense,
rushing for 168 yards on seven carries and a
touchdown, and also throwing for 158 yards
on 6-of-13 passing and three more scores. A 62 senior currently being recruited as a wide
receiver by Cal, according to Williams, Harris
also had one reception for 10 yards.
He had a wonderful performance, Williams
said. Gutsy performance as the leader of the
team. He led by example. How do you not
give your all when youre playing next to a
guy giving his all every play.
Harris got Mission on the board in the first
quarter with the crafty use of his legs. The
Bears were facing fourth-and-1 at their own 39yard line, but with Mills anticipating a quarterback sneak, Harris stutter-stepped in anticipation of the goal-line crush, then darted through
an opening and sprinted virtually untouched
for a 61-yard score.
Mission went on to score on its next two
possessions a beautiful Harris spiral for a
76-yard pass to Tyrece Johnson, followed by a
4-yard scoring run by Joseph Broussard and
closed the half with a 17-yard toss from Harris
to Johnson to go up 25-0.
Mills settled for five first downs in the first
half, but things got even worse in the second

Brandon McCarthy came off the disabled
list (right hip stiffness) earlier in the day to

would stand as the only time Mills moved the
chains in the half.
Harris added a third TD pass to Johnson with
a 24-yard chuck to go up 31-0 with 4:09
remaining in the third quarter. After Tongilavas
41-yard score to open the fourth, Mission added
a 66-yard scoring run by Broussard and a 1-yard
score by Frank Harris in the fourth.
When you have a team like that hungry to
win, theyve been getting beaten up, so they
are going to come to play, Dozier said.
Stanley closed the day with 72 total yards of
offense. The 5-9, 230-pound senior never
came off the field, also serving as the core of
the defense at middle linebacker. He was 3-of-6
passing for 58 yards and also battled for 14
yards on 12 carries.
Never having started at quarterback,
Stanley has taken approximately 10 snaps
from center the season but hadnt thrown a
pass prior to Saturday.
I was comfortable, Stanley said. I just do
what the coaches tell me to do. We worked on it
all week in practice. It was something new
though, Im not going to lie.
Mills still has reason to be optimistic. After
a bye week, the Vikings open Peninsula
Athletic League Lake Division against two
teams Carlmont and El Camino with just
one win apiece this season. Mills travels to
Carlmont Friday, Oct. 7 at 4 p.m.
This game doesnt really affect me because
its still preseason, Stanley said. They came
out and balled like they should. Give them
props. We still have five games left though.
Quarterback wasnt the only position Mills
was short at Saturday. The Vikings were also
missing three defensive backs, junior Austin
Brown, junior Johnny Sargbah and senior
Gordon Tran due to injury.
That hurts us in our secondary; and we
were suspect against the pass, Dozier said.
So that hurt us.
McCarthy gave up two runs and four hits
in 5 1/3 innings, struck out six and walked
one. He hasnt won since July 9 against San
Diego.
Anderson allowed two runs and 10 hits in
6 1/3 innings. The left-hander struck out
one and walked two.
Several Dodgers tipped their helmets or
saluted toward Scully in his booth before
stepping into the box for their first at-bats.
Some of Scullys grandchildren popped
into the booth between innings, sharing
hugs and kisses before he put his headset
back on. Fans chanted VIN! VIN! VIN!
between innings when video tributes to him
were aired. A sheepish Scully covered his
face with his hands, having said earlier that
all the attention was embarrassing.
Scullys final three games will be next
weekend at San Francisco. He wont do the
three-game series in San Diego starting
Tuesday, having long ago reduced his travel.

PALMER
Continued from page 11
probably would not have had that type of
excitement.
And thats why hes the king.
Beyond his golf, Palmer was a pioneer in
sports marketing, paving the way for scores
of other athletes to reap in millions from
endorsements. Some four decades after his
last PGA Tour win, he ranked among the
highest-earners in golf.
On the golf course, Palmer was an icon not
for how often he won, but the way he did it.
He would hitch up his pants, drop a cigarette and attack the flags. With powerful
hands wrapped around the golf club, Palmer
would slash at the ball with all of his might,
then twist that muscular neck and squint to
see where it went.
When he hits the ball, the earth shakes,
Gene Littler once said.
Palmer rallied from seven shots behind to
win a U.S. Open. He blew a seven-shot lead
on the back nine to lose a U.S. Open.
He was never dull.
He left behind a gallery known as Arnies
Army, which began at Augusta National
with a small group of soldiers from nearby
Fort Hood, and grew to include a legion of
fans from every corner of the globe.
Palmer stopped playing the Masters in
2004 and hit the ceremonial tee shot every
year until 2016, when age began to take a
toll and he struggled with his balance.
It was Palmer who gave golf the modern
version of the Grand Slam winning all four
professional majors in one year. He came up
with the idea after winning the Masters and
U.S. Open in 1960. Palmer was runner-up at
the British Open, later calling it one of the
biggest disappointments of his career. But
his appearance alone invigorated the British
Open, which Americans had been ignoring
for years.
Palmer
never
won
the
PGA
Championship, one major short of capturing a career Grand Slam.
But then, standard he set went beyond trophies. It was the way he treated people,
looking everyone in the eye with a smile
and a wink. He signed every autograph,
making sure it was legible. He made every
fan feel like an old friend.
Palmer never like being referred to as The
King, but the name stuck.
It was back in the early 60s. I was playing pretty good, winning a lot of tournaments, and someone gave a speech and
referred to me as The King, Palmer said in
a November 2011 interview with The
Associated Press.
I dont bask in it. I dont relish it. I tried

for a long time to stop that and, he said,
pausing to shrug, there was no point.
Palmer played at least one PGA Tour event
every season for 52 consecutive years, ending with the 2004 Masters. He spearheaded
the growth of the 50-and-older Champions
Tour, winning 10 times and drawing some of
the biggest crowds.
He was equally successful off with golf
course design, a wine collection, and apparel that included his famous logo of an
umbrella. He bought the Bay Hill Club &
Lodge upon making his winter home in
Orlando, Florida, and in 2007 the PGA Tour
changed the name of the tournament to the
Arnold Palmer Invitational.
The combination of iced tea and lemonade is known as an Arnold Palmer.
Padraig Harrington recalls eating in an
Italian restaurant in Miami when he heard a
customer order one.
Think about it, Harrington said. You
dont go up there and order a Tiger Woods at
the bar. You can go up there and order an
Arnold Palmer in this country and the barman he was a young man knew what
the drink was. Thats in a league of your
own.
Palmer was born Sept. 10, 1929 in
Latrobe, Pennsylvania, the oldest of four
children. His father, Deacon, became the
greenskeeper at Latrobe Country Club in
1921 and the club pro in 1933.
He had two loves as a boy strapping on
his holster with toy guns to play Cowboys
and Indians, and playing golf. It was on the
golf course that Palmer grew to become so
strong, with barrel arms and hands of iron.
Palmer joined the PGA Tour in 1955 and
won the Canadian Open for the first of his
62 titles. He went on to win four green jackets at Augusta National, along with the
British Open in 1961 and 1962 and the U.S.
Open in 1960, perhaps the most memorable
of his seven majors.
Nothing defined Palmer like that 1960
U.S. Open at Cherry Hills. He was seven
shots behind going into the final round
when he ran into Bob Drum, a Pittsburgh
sports writer. Palmer asked if he could still
win by shooting 65, which would give him
a four-day total of 280. Drum told him that
280 wont do you a damn bit of good.
Incensed, Palmer headed to the first tee
and drove the green on the par-4 opening
hole to make birdie. He birdied the next
three holes, shot 65 and outlasted Ben
Hogan and 20-year-old amateur Jack
Nicklaus.
Palmer went head-to-head with Nicklaus
two years later in a U.S. Open, the start of
one of golfs most famous rivalries. It was
one-sided. Nicklaus went on to win 18
majors and was regarded as golfs greatest
champion. Palmer won two more majors
after that loss, and his last PGA Tour win
came in 1973 at the Bob Hope Classic.

LSU fires coaches Miles, Cameron; promotes Orgeron


By Brett Martel
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Les Miles has finally been done in by one of


the frantic finishes that came to define the
Mad Hatters tenure at LSU.
LSU fired Miles and offensive coordinator
Cam Cameron on Sunday, and promoted defensive line coach Ed Orgeron to interim head
coach.
The moves came less than 24 hours after
Miles briefly watched his players wildly celebrate what they thought was a game-winning
touchdown pass at Auburn, only to walk off
the field with a stunning, 18-13 upset loss
after officials determined on video replay that
time had expired before the ball was snapped.
It wasnt the first time chaos reigned in the
closing seconds of an LSU game with Miles at
the helm, leading to intense scrutiny of the
quirky coachs clock management. But it will
go down as the last after 11-plus seasons that
were highlighted by a 2007 national title. It

Sports brief
CFL player Mylan Hicks killed at 23
CALGARY, Alberta Mylan Hicks, a former Michigan State defensive back and
member of the Calgary Stampeders, was
killed early Sunday in what the CFL team
described as an act of violence. He was 23.
Police said earlier Sunday they were investigating a shooting outside a Calgary nightclub. They said in a statement that the victim, whom they did not identify, was taken
to a hospital in life-threatening condition
before dying of his injuries. They later said
three suspects had been were arrested.
Hicks signed with the NFLs San
Francisco 49ers as an undrafted free agent in
May 2015 before being released at the end
of training camp.
He hadnt played a game this season since
signing with the Stampeders in May.

will also be the last time


Miles can be blamed for
untimely bouts of stagnation by an offense that
seems to have too much
talent to be stifled as it has
for significant stretches.
Coach Miles has done
a tremendous job here and
hes been a great ambassaLes Miles
dor for our University,
which makes this even more difficult, LSU
athletic director Joe Alleva said in a written
statement. However, its apparent in evaluating the program through the first month of
the season that a change has to be made.
We have an obligation to our student-athletes to put them in the best position to have
success on the football field each week. We
have great confidence that coach Orgeron will
do just that.
Miles firing came hours after LSU (2-2, 1-1
Southeastern Conference), which was ranked

18th last week, dropped out of the Top 25 in


the latest AP Poll released Sunday.
The 62-year-old coach did not speak publicly about his dismissal, which came more
than three seasons before his contract was due
to expire at the end of 2019. Miles is paid
about $4.3 million annually and although it is
unclear whether hell get all of what he would
have been owed in his buyout.
Several LSU players said Miles was given
an opportunity to say goodbye to the team on
Sunday evening as the formal transition to
Orgerons interim regime took place.
He told us to keep fighting, safety Jamal
Adams said. Coach Miles gave it his all
every day. He is so passionate about LSU.
Coach Miles definitely cares about you as a
human being. I hurt for coach.
Junior running back Leonard Fournette, a
Heisman Trophy candidate who is expected to
turn pro after this season, said he was very
shocked by the decision and hated the way
the teams unexpected early season stumbles

precipitated Miles firing.


Coach Miles loves us. We had some great
memories with him, Fournette said. He is
one hell of a coach. Of course, you feel some
guilt after him getting fired. At the same time,
I understand this is a business.
Receiver Travin Dural said Miles almost
broke down, while delivering a touching
speech, and added, You could tell he loved the
team.
Miles, who replaced Nick Saban in 2005,
went 114-34 at LSU, the second-most victories in school history behind Charles
McClendons 137 victories from 1962 to
1979.
Cameron, an old friend of Miles from when
they were both assistants at Michigan in the
1980s, joined LSU in 2013. His offense was
effective when his quarterback was Zach
Mettenberger, a tall, strong-armed, pro-style
pocket passer. Production was far less consistent and the passing game was often anemic during the past two seasons.

Harvick races into NASCARs second round


By Dan Gelston
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOUDON, N.H. Kevin Harvick has


thrived as NASCARs version of a Game 7
master, steeling his nerves and flourishing
in those win-or-else races that kept a championship push alive.
His Chase off to a rocky start, Harvick
injected the Chase again with a rousing finish that eliminated a must-win race for him
and parked him in the next playoff round.
Harvick won Sunday at New Hampshire
Motor Speedway to earn a spot in the second round of the NASCAR Sprint Cup playoffs, pulling away off a restart a year after a
late loss at the track.
Its kind of like an addiction, Harvick
said. You just love the rush of being able to

be behind and be able to


perform and make that
happen.
Harvick finished 20th
in the Chase for the
Sprint Cup championship opener which
stuck him 15th in the
standings. With another
Kevin Harvick weak finish at New
Hampshire,
Harvick
would have faced yet another race at Dover
he may have had to win to advance.
His lap times in the No. 4 Chevrolet only
got faster deeper into the race and he was
soon nipping at Martin Truex Jr. and Matt
Kenseth at the front of the field. Kenseth
dominated the second half of the race and
seemed poised to win the New Hampshire

race for the third straight time.


Harvick, the 2014 Sprint Cup champion,
had enough juice in the Chevy to zip past
Kenseth with five laps left and join Truex as
the drivers locked in the next round. Truex
won the Chase opener at Chicagoland and
he led a race-high 141 laps at New
Hampshire.
Harvick ran out of fuel late last year at
New Hampshire to lose and faced a win-orelimination race the next week at Dover.
Harvick, who won for the third time this
season, rallied for one of the biggest wins
of his career to survive another round.
He won in a similar situation in 2014 at
Phoenix when he needed a victory to
advance to the championship race. Harvick
won the finale and the championship at
Homestead.

Samson spoke at a news conference while surrounded by every player on the Marlins, except their ace.
The players wore team jerseys
black ones. Pitcher David Phelps
stared at the floor and shook his
head, while outfielder Christian
Yelich took a deep breath and exhaled
slowly. Their eyes were red.
Manager Don Mattingly and president of baseball operations Michael
Hill flanked Samson and unsuccessfully fought back tears. Slugger
Giancarlo Stanton didnt speak but
later posted a tribute on Instagram.
Im still waiting to wake up from
this nightmare, Stanton said. I lost
my brother today and cant quite
comprehend it. The shock is overwhelming. What he meant to me, our
team, the city of Miami, Cuba &
everyone else in the world that his
enthusiasm/heart has touched can
never be replaced. I cant fathom
what his family is going through
because We, as his extended Family
are a wreck.
Fernandez was on a vessel that hit
a jetty near a harbor entrance, said
Lorenzo Veloz of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission.
The overturned boat remained in the
water for several hours, its engines
partially submerged as its nose
pointed skyward, and debris from the
crash was scattered over some of the
large jagged rocks.
Veloz described the condition of
the boat as horrible.
City of Miami Fire-Rescue workers
were seen carrying bodies, draped and
on stretchers, at the Coast Guard station after sunrise. They were taken to
the medical examiners office. Two
bodies were found under the vessel
and a third was found on the jetty.
The names of the other two victims
were withheld pending notification
of relatives, the Coast Guard said.
One of them was the son of a MiamiDade police detective, the police
department said.
It does appear that speed was
involved due to the impact and the
severity of it, Veloz said. It does
appear to be that they were coming at
full speed when they encountered the
jetty, and the accident happened.
Fernandez died from trauma and not
drowning, Veloz said, who added
there was no immediate indication
that alcohol or drugs were a cause in
the crash. He said none of the three
victims wore a life jacket.
The boat was owned by a friend of
Fernandez.
It does pertain to a friend of Jose
who is very well connected with several Marlins players, and I have
stopped that boat before for safety
inspections with other Marlins players on board, Veloz said. We know
that this boat knows the area. We just
cant answer why this happened.
Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria was

out of town but planned to fly to


Miami.
Sadly, the brightest lights are
often the ones that extinguish the
fastest, Loria said in a statement.
Jose left us far too soon, but his
memory will endure in all of us. At
this difficult time, our prayers are
with his mother, grandmother, family and friends.
A native of Santa Clara, Cuba,
Fernandez was unsuccessful in his
first three attempts to defect, and
spent several months in prison. At
15, he and his mother finally made it
to Mexico, and were reunited in
Tampa, Florida, with his father, who
had escaped from Cuba two years earlier.
The Marlins drafted him in 2011
and Fernandez was in the majors two
years later at 20. He went 38-17 in
his four seasons with Miami, winning the NLs Rookie of the Year
award in 2013, and was twice an AllStar.
Last week, Fernandez posted a
photo of his girlfriend sporting a
baby bump on his Instagram page,
announcing that the couple was
expecting its first child.
Im so glad you came into my
life, Fernandez wrote in that post.
Im ready for where this journey is
gonna take us together.
Fernandez became a U.S. citizen
last year and was enormously popular
in Miami thanks to his success and
exuberant flair. When he wasnt
pitching, he would hang over the
dugout railing as the teams lead
cheerleader.
When I think about Josie, its
going to be thinking about a little
kid, said Mattingly, pausing repeatedly to compose himself. I see such
a little boy in him ... the way he
played. ... Kids play Little League,
thats the joy Jose played with.
Mattingly then wiped away tears,
and he wasnt alone. Retiring Red
Sox star David Ortiz asked the Tampa
Bay Rays to cancel a pregame tribute
they scheduled in his honor before
his final game in their ballpark
Sunday.
I dont have the words to describe
the pain I feel, Ortiz said.
The New York Mets, in the thick of
a playoff chase, will begin a series in
Miami on Monday. Fernandezs
debut game in 2013 was against the
Mets, and he was scheduled to face
them Monday after having his start
pushed back a day.
When the first pitch left his hand,
the first thought is, Oh, wow, this is
something special, said Mets manager Terry Collins, who picked
Fernandez for this years All-Star
Game. This was not only one of the
greatest pitchers in the modern game
but one of the finest young men
youd ever meet, who played the
game with passion and fun and
enjoyed being out there.
The game Monday will be played
as scheduled, the Marlins said.
Deep in our hearts there is a lot of
pain, Miami third baseman Martin
Prado said. Somehow weve got to
overcome that.

Last week, the Foster City Council unanimously agreed to offer up to $60,000
toward the program during the initial sixmonth pilot period. San Mateo has made a
similar agreement extending $30, 000
toward keeping costs initially lower.
Foster City, a community bordered by
two highways and the Bayfront, has sought
to reconcile job growth with regional traffic congestion while priding itself on quality of life.
Robert Sadow, cofounder and CEO of
Scoop, spoke to the Foster City Council
about how the company strives to work
with Bay Area municipalities and large
employers to make carpooling easier for
both drivers and riders.
The tension between economic development and quality of life in the city are real

how do you make it possible for cities to


grow, to pursue economic development,
without feeling like theyre making sacrifices in quality of life?
Even though its more expensive to drive
alone, commuters often make trade-offs to
have the reliability of their own car. Two
prime reasons people dont choose to carpool is it can be challenging to find someone to share a ride with, and commuters
dont always know when theyll want to
leave work, Sadow said.
But Scoop helps make carpooling more
flexible as well as reliable, he said. Users
can book a morning ride until about 9 p.m.
the night before, and have until around
noon or mid-day to book a trip home. Plus,
Scoop guarantees a user gets home by paying for the cost of a taxi or rideshare like
Uber, if they cant find a carpool or have an
emergency, Sadow said.
Since the company began in 2015,
Sadow said 35,000 Bay Area residents have
signed up for Scoop. The company has
organized over 200, 000 carpool trips
accounting for 1.5 million miles of driving
being avoided, and reduced hundreds of tons
of carbon dioxide from being emitted,
according to Sadow.

Congestion is not just an issue in Foster


City, its a top three issue probably in
every metro area in the world. And our mission as a company is how do you not make
congestion a top three issue in every metro
area? How do you not make getting back
and forth to work the worst hour or two
hours in somebodys daily experience?
Sadow said.
The average trip in the Bay Area is about
20 miles and Scoop users typically pay
about $6 per ride. Having the cities help
subsidize the initial cost is a meaningful
incentive that helps get people to consider
and ultimately adopt carpooling,
Sadow said.
Over the six-month period, the city will
extend up to $60,000 from its Sustainable
Foster City Fund, accounting for up to
7,500 trips, said Assistant Foster City
Manager Dante Hall.
Councilman Gary Pollard excitedly said
hed be thrilled to sign up and share his
daily commute to the Caltrain station.
Whether I drive or use carpool, Id be
happy to get involved in this, Pollard said.
The program is open to both residents
commuting out of the city or employees
heading in to their Foster City offices.

I would like to encourage all of our residents to use Scoop and be part of reducing
traffic and reducing our carbon footprint,
Councilman Sam Hindi said.
San Mateo is allocating $30,000 toward
the program and expects to launch the program in early October, according to Kathy
Kleinbaum, San Mateos interim economic
development manager.
Ideally, having both cities participate
will generate even more interest in the program thus making carpooling more accessible.
Commute. org estimates half of San
Mateo County residents are commuting outside the county and while carpooling may
not be a silver bullet to resolving traffic
woes, Kleinbaum said it helps diversify
options.
The intent is to reduce traffic congestion
by helping raise awareness and encourage
the use of alternate commute options,
Kleinbaum said in an email. There is no
one solution that works for everyone, but
we hope that by offering a diverse array of
menu options (train, bus, shuttle, bike
share, carpool and even car share) that we
can make a dent on this traffic situation we
are in.

Initiative for a grant that will help us close


the digital divide, he said. We know many
of our students do not have as much access
to technology as others.
Representatives from the initiative took a
similar approach of gathering perspective
from Sequoia Union High School District
officials regarding best ways to help
Redwood City teens, but arrived at a different fashion of offering assistance.
High school district officials recommended the charity fund full-time positions for
advisors who are focused solely on offering
support to 60 incoming students who run
the highest risk of dropping out.
The advisors share with students success strategies for school achievement
and also help them stay engaged. Huezo
said she has met with some of the students and their advisors and can sense the

value of the relationship.


I have heard from the students directly
they felt they could trust their advocate with
any issues they were having, she said. It
was really heartwarming to hear how the
students are thriving as a result of the
grant.
Beyond the deeply involved work collaborating with local education experts, the
initiative has also granted $100 to each
teacher in the Redwood City Elementary
School District and the Ravenswood City
Elementary School District in East Palo
Alto to buy supplies. Principals also
receive $7,500 to pay toward student support services, professional development,
community engagement and other campus
enrichment efforts.
The most recent donation to Redwood
City Elementary School District marks the

third year the initiative has offered some


kind of educational support, indicating an
ongoing commitment to enriching the
local school system, Huezo said.
The initiative will also maintain a relationship with recipient school districts in
an effort to track the success of the variety
of programs the grant money has funded,
she said.
We are not going anywhere, Huezo said.
As Chan and Zuckerberg have expressed a
desire to donate 99 percent of their personal
wealth over their lifetimes, Huezo said the
work they do in the future to fund education
support programs will be informed by their
recent local efforts.
This is Mark and Priscillas backyard,
and the work they do elsewhere will be
grounded in what we learn from our work
here, she said.

Other areas through which the city is
or share this story at
www.smdailyjournal.com hoping to make building in San Mateo

after reaching out to the development


community was at what level to require
new projects be electric vehicle
ready. Often, installing electric vehicle charging infrastructure requires an
electrical panel with higher capacity
and is much more costly to add after
construction is completed. Instead,
the city is considering requiring
developers of new projects to be electric vehicle ready by including the
higher-capacity panels at the onset.
Although the state recently recommended voluntary standards lower
than what city officials were considering, San Mateos Sustainability
Commission voted this month to recommend the council enact the more
stringent requirements.
The proposed city standards would
be to require commercial and multifamily properties have at least 10 percent of their parking spaces electric
vehicle ready, Kleinbaum said.
In contrast, the state set up tiers that
included no recommendation for
multi-family developments with
between three and 16 units, and setting it at 5 percent for housing projects with 17 or more units. The state
recommended requiring either 8 percent or 10 percent of commercial parking spaces be able to support the
charging infrastructure, according to a
city staff report.
Kleinbaum noted how new singlefamily homes and duplexes are already
required to be built with the infrastructure needed to support electric vehicles. While it depends on each project,
the city estimates the average cost to
implement the proposed rules for a 94space parking lot would be around
$10,000 which would be a minimal

cost to an entire project and significantly cheaper than installing the


infrastructure later on, she said.
However, some have expressed concerns about the impact to development. In a letter to the city, Bay
Meadows master developer Wilson
Meany noted its important to take
demand into account. At one of the
now fully occupied new Bay Meadows
apartment buildings, only two of the
four electric vehicle charging spaces
were rented, according to the letter.
It does not make sense financially
or spatially for us to exceed demand
when this is an evolving issue,
according to the letter.
Kleinbaum agreed the city doesnt
want to create further hurdles while it
strives to meet the goals of its
Climate Action Plan and greenhouse
gas reduction targets.
Were trying to better prepare our
properties, but still be reasonable. We
dont want to slow down development
or impact housing costs. But we also
want to make sure the infrastructure is
in place as preferences change and
more and more people are driving electric cars, Kleinbaum said, noting the
influx of electric cars in the Bay Area.
Although staff suggested reducing
the residential requirements in light of
the states new proposal and developer feedback, the Sustainability
Commission decided it was a priority
and kept its 10 percent recommendation that the council will consider. In
turn, the commission also voted to
remove the requirement that a portion
of the electric vehicle ready spaces
actually have charging infrastructure
installed, Kleinbaum said.

more environmentally sustainable is


by requiring new developments to
install solar panels.
In May, the City Council approved
updating its regulations which had
to be reviewed by the state. If the rules
go into effect beginning next year,
new single-family homes must install a
minimum 1-kilowatt solar photovoltaic system; multi-family projects with
between three and 16 units must have a
minimum 2-kilowatt system; multifamily buildings with 17 or more units
must have a minimum 3-kilowatt system.
For construction of new non-residential buildings, those less than 10,000
square feet must have at least a 3-kilowatt system and larger structures must
include at least a 5-kilowatt system.
The proposed rules include an exemption for installing a solar hot water
system and requirements to install
lighter-colored cool roofs on certain
multi-family and commercial developments.
Last week, the California Energy
Commission officially approved San
Mateos proposed amendments related
to solar panels, and even praised the
local city for its efforts to adapt to climate change, Kleinbaum said.
Another new requirement will be to
have new homes constructed with a
low-cost valve that could assist in
properties using recycled water such
as from a clothes washing machine
to irrigate landscape.
Outside of the electric vehicle charging requirements, Kleinbaum said the
city received few if any concerns from
the development community.
All of the changes will be reviewed
by the City Council, likely in
November. If approved, they would go
into effect Jan. 1, 2017, Kleinbaum
said.
Sweetland, its voice cast is led by
Andy Samberg.
The rest of the top 10 was populated
by holdovers, with Sully slotting in
at third with $13.8 million in its third
week. It has now grossed $92.4 million domestically. A potentially bigger test of Hanks drawing power
awaits the actor next month with the
release of Inferno, in which he
reprises his role as Robert Langdon in
the Dan Brown franchise.
The Magnificent Seven slots in as
one of the biggest openings for a
Western ever, though the genres heyday predated modern wide releases. The
only Westerns to debut better, not
accounting for inflation, bended the
genre in other directions: sci-fi in the
case of Cowboys & Aliens ($36.4
million in 2011) and animation in
Rango ($38. 1 million, also in
2011).

BEIRUT At least 26 civilians were killed in fresh government airstrikes on the contested city of Aleppo, Syrian
activists said Sunday, as the United Nations Security
Council convened an emergency meeting on the spiraling
violence in Syria but failed to take any action because of
deep divisions between Russia and the Western powers.
The United States, Britain and France, who called the
emergency meeting, heaped blame on Moscow for supporting the Syrian offensive which U.N. envoy Staffan de
Mistura called one of the worst of the 5 1/2-year war.
When Syrias U.N. Ambassador Bashar Jaafari was called
to speak in the council, the ambassadors of the three
Western powers walked out in protest.
They had demanded a halt to the Aleppo offensive and
immediate council action, and their walkout demonstrated
anger and frustration not only at Damascus but at Russia for
backing close ally Bashar Assads military campaign while
talking about reviving a cessation of hostilities.
What Russia is sponsoring and doing is not counter-terrorism, its barbarism, said U.S. Ambassador Samantha
Power. Its apocalyptic what is being done in eastern
Aleppo.
As the government offensive entered its fourth day on
Sunday, medical workers and local officials reported
airstrikes on neighborhoods throughout Aleppos rebelheld eastern districts.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights
reported 26 civilians had been killed by 7:30 p.m. and said
it expects the toll to rise. Ibrahim Alhaj of the Syrian Civil
Defense search and rescue outfit gave a higher toll, saying
hospitals and rescuers had documented the deaths of 43 people so far on Sunday.
The Observatory, which relies on a network of contacts
inside Syria, said earlier in the day that 213 civilians had
been killed by airstrikes and shelling on opposition areas
in and around Aleppo since the U.S.-Russian brokered
cease-fire collapsed Monday evening.
Hospitals are overwhelmed with casualties and medical
workers are expecting many of the wounded to die from a
lack of treatment, according to Mohammad Zein
Khandaqani, a member of the Medical Council, which oversees medical affairs in the citys opposition quarters.
Ive never seen so many people dying in once place, he
said from a hospital in the city. Its terrifying today. In
less than one hour the Russian planes have killed more than
50 people and injured more than 200.
Conflicting casualty estimates are common in the aftermath of clashes and attacks in Syria.

Around the world


In battle for Iraqs Mosul,
many forces with many motives
BAGHDAD An unlikely array of forces is converging
on the city of Mosul, lining up for a battle on the historic
plains of northern Iraq that is likely to be decisive in the
war against the Islamic State group.
The tacit alliance Iraqi troops alongside Shiite militiamen, Sunni Arab tribesmen, Kurdish fighters and U.S special forces underscores the importance of this battle.
Retaking Mosul, Iraqs second-largest city, would effectively break the back of the militant group, ending their selfdeclared caliphate, at least in Iraq.
But victory doesnt mean an end to the conflict. In a postIslamic State Iraq, the enmities and rivalries among the
players in the anti-IS coalition could easily erupt.
The battle, expected near the end of the year, threatens to
be long and grueling. If IS fighters dig in against an assault,
they have hundreds of thousands of residents in the city as
potential human shields. And as residents flee, they fuel the
humanitarian crisis in Iraqs Kurdish region around Mosul,
where camps are already overcrowded with more than 1.6
million people displaced over the past two years.
Humanitarian groups are rushing to prepare for potentially
1 million more who could be displaced by a Mosul assault.

Spains regional elections


give boost to Rajoys party
Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula

Sponsorships and exhibitor space still available.

YGPSJOGPSNBUJPO

MADRID Acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoys conservative Popular Party got a boost in regional elections
Sunday, while the opposition Socialists lost ground.
Residents of the Basque and Galicia regions voted in elections for 75-seat regional parliaments, but the results failed
to indicate a clear path forward to ending the countrys prolonged political stalemate.
Rajoy has been running a caretaker government for
almost a year after two inconclusive rounds of national
elections in December and June. The conservatives won the
most seats in both elections, but were unable to form a governing coalition, and another election is likely in
December.
In Galicia, the Popular Party won a majority of seats, with
41, while the Basque Nationalist Party won 29. The Basque
party won the most seats in the Basque region.
