South City officials eye Oyster Points future

Discussions address marina operations adjacent to proposed Bayshore development
By Austin Walsh

With a massive life sciences

campus along the Bayfront in
South San Francisco expected to
soon break ground, officials are
set to evaluate oversight of Oyster
Points potential transformation.
The South San Francisco City
Council is slated to host a study
session Wednesday, Nov. 30,
regarding the citys role and
responsibilities in managing the
Oyster Point Marina, adjacent to
the 80 acres targeted for development by a builder seeking to con-

struct more than 2 million of

square feet reserved for biotechnology companies.
With groundwork for such a sizable development slated to begin
next year, officials feel it is wise
to address management of the
marina currently operated through
a joint powers agreement between
the city, the board responsible for
managing properties purchased
agency funds and the San Mateo
County Harbor District, according
to a city report.

Millbrae native Jonny Zywiciel is wrapping up his first solo tour supporting his debut album with an appearance
at the Boom Boom Room in the Fillmore District of San Francisco.

Stars in sight for Millbrae musician

Jonny Zywiciel finishes first solo tour back before native Bay Area audience
By Austin Walsh

San Mateo County native musician

Jonny Zywiciel is hoping his recently released debut album catapults his
career as a guitarist and songwriter
onto a global stage.
The 24-year-old San Mateo resident
has already gained some acclaim, as
he looks to wrap his first solo tour
with a final stop next month at the
Boom Boom Room in San Francisco.
While many burgeoning talents
may be satisfied with establishing
such a resume at a young age,
Zywiciel said his success over the

past couple years has only whet his

appetite for more.
I want to use my music and influence to help and change for the better, he said. I think music has the
power to do that. So I want to play in
front of as many people as possible
and have my music inspire and use
that music to create positive change.
Zywiciel said he knows well the
ways music can help heal wounds, as
his passion for playing guitar aided
him navigating through a difficult
time in his teen years when his parents divorced.
The trying experience forged a
deeper faith in his talent, which was

further tested when Zywiciel moved

from his native Millbrae to Berkeley
with his former band to pursue a career
as a musician.
Soon after relocating, the band
broke up and Zywiciel said he took to
playing music on the street as a
soloist in hopes of further honing his
skills as a singer and songwriter.
He said his commitment ultimately
paid dividends, as he began landing
gigs at local rooms, further fortifying
his confidence in his ability to make
music that resonated with others.
I feel the need to give music to

After decades of planning to

transform a former horse race track
into one of the largest transit-oriented developments in the state,
the city of San Mateo has partnered with a nonprofit housing
developer to ensure people of all
economic backgrounds will have
an opportunity to call Bay
Meadows home.
Constructing a new estimated
$50 million housing development
without intending to make a profit

has taken years of orchestrated

negotiations between the city,
land owner and now an affordable
housing developer.
Last week, the council unanimously approved working with
Bridge Housing to construct
between 68 and 72 units at a 1-acre
parcel the city secured through the
development agreement for revitalizing the second phase of the
180-acre site off Highway 101.
The new project is slated to provide housing for those who make

Man pleads no contest to hate crime Storms give state needed rain, snow
A Millbrae man pleaded no contest last week
in San Mateo County Superior Court to committing a hate crime in which he called another man
a derogatory name before hitting him near a
Redwood City gas station the day after the U.S.
presidential election, prosecutors said Monday.
Around 11 p.m. on Nov. 9, Michael Goggins,
34, showed up to the Chevron gas station at
2215 El Camino Real, according to the District
Attorneys Office.
Goggins then yelled at an employee Why are
you in my country? and accused him of being
lazy, prosecutors said.
When the employee called police, responding officers found Goggins at a nearby warehouse on Laurel Street. Goggins ignored multiple commands from officers and allegedly tried
to bite officers as they were arresting him.
After he was arrested, Goggins talked about
hitting a Mexican and said aliens were invading
the country, according to prosecutors.
Officers took Goggins to a hospital, where he
was given a psychological evaluation.
Following his arrest, police were able to
locate another victim. The victim said Goggins

had approached him and his friend that day as

they were walking on Willow Street.
Goggins allegedly said to the victim in
Spanish, Im white, Im from here. Where are
you from, wetback?
He then punched the victim in the chest, prosecutors said.
On Wednesday, Goggins pleaded no contest
to making felony threats to a police officer and
a misdemeanor hate crime for violating a victims civil rights.
The no contest plea comes with the condition
that he wont serve no more than 120 days in
county jail and will be referred for consideration
into a mental health program, according to
Goggins will appear next in court on Friday
for sentencing. He remains in custody on
$50,000 bail, prosecutors said.
Goggins defense attorney was not immediately available for comment.
The hate crime case is one of many reported
nationwide following the election of Donald
Trump as president. During the campaign,
Trump called for a wall to be built between the
U.S. and Mexico and threatened to deport millions of undocumented immigrants.

LOS ANGELES California had vital

snow on Sierra Nevada peaks Monday and
positive rainfall totals registered for many
areas after a stormy autumn weekend up and
down the state that hopes to avoid a sixth
consecutive year of drought conditions.
In the Sierra, where the annual snowpack
functions as a reservoir for much of the
states water supply, storms over Kings

Canyon and Sequoia national parks dumped

19 inches of snow at Lodgepole and 16
inches at Grant Grove, the National Weather
Service said.
Southern California mountains also saw
snow accumulations, including 5 inches at
Big Bear Lake in the San Bernardino range,
where two ski areas began limited operations. To the west, Mountain High ski area
in the San Gabriel Mountains planned to
open Tuesday.
Schwab said he could not say whether any
of the cases were related, but noted there
have been various incidents of maritime
drug smuggling along the coast.

Local briefs
Three arrested in connection with
alleged drug smuggling boat
Authorities arrested three people Sunday
morning along a remote area of the San
Mateo County coast in connection with a
boat suspected of smuggling drugs.
The three suspects, whose identities have
not been released, were allegedly connected
to a panga boat that landed at Ao Nuevo
State Park in unincorporated San Mateo
County, according to U.S. Immigration and
Customs Enforcement spokesman James
The incident follows other maritime drugsmuggling schemes nearly two years ago,
one at the same coastal park and another at
Pescadero State Beach.
During this weekends incident, U. S.
Coast Guard crew noticed the boat before it
landed and had been tracking it. Coast Guard
officials then alerted ICE Homeland Security
Investigations agents and San Mateo
County sheriffs deputies, Schwab said.
Authorities responded to the area and
arrested the trio connected to the boat.
Schwab did not elaborate on what kind of
narcotics the boat may have been carrying
or the quantity.
The investigation remains ongoing and
Schwab could not tie the incident to other
drug busts two years ago.
In May 2014, more than 1,000 pounds of
marijuana were discovered along with an
abandoned car and panga boat at Pescadero
State Beach. At the time, officials with
Homeland Security questioned whether the
incident could be tied to Mexican drug cartel.
On Aug. 1, 2014, $23 million worth of
marijuana was smuggled from Mexico to
Ao Nuevo State Park. Nine men were
arrested after two large vans met a panga
boat carrying 5,148 pounds of marijuana. In
that case, some were residents of Mexico,
San Diego and San Jose. Some of the men
pleaded no contest in San Mateo County
Superior Court in exchange for a year in jail
and three years supervised probation.

Three dead after

Thanksgiving meal at church
Three people died and five others were
sickened after eating a Thanksgiving meal
prepared at Antiochs American Legion Hall
by a local church, according to a Contra
Costa County Health Services spokeswoman.
All eight people were admitted to Sutter
Delta Medical Center at various times
between Friday and Saturday with what
appeared to be food borne illnesses.
Three people died, four were treated and
released and one person remains hospitalized, according to the hospital.
Autrey James, commander at American
Legion Post 161, said Golden Hills
Community Church was responsible for
preparing the meals on Thanksgiving.
We are extremely, extremely upset that
anyone lost their lives, James said. We
were not ourselves involved in the cooking
of the meal.
The cause of the deaths and illnesses,
which surfaced after 835 people ate the
meal, is still under investigation, said
Health Services spokeswoman Victoria
Balladares. If it were a food borne outbreak, wed expect to see a lot more people
getting sick, Balladares said.
The countys public health and environmental health officials are conducting an
investigation to determine just what might
have killed and sickened the diners, but
Balladares said there is no current risk to the
general public.

A 2. 8-magnitude earthquake struck in

The quake occurred at 7:36 a.m., had a

Trump won presidency, but lost popular vote


WASHINGTON Donald Trumps tweets

cant erase the reality that he lost the popular
vote in this months election, according to the
Associated Press vote-counting operation.
The president-elect tweeted on Saturday that

the millions of people who voted illegally. He
also alleged serious voter fraud in California,
New Hampshire and Virginia and complained
that the media arent covering it.
Not only did he present no evidence to back
up those claims there apparently isnt any.
Asked to provide supporting evidence on
Monday, Trumps transition team pointed only
to past charges of irregularities in voter registration. There has been no evidence of wide-

U.S. investigating leak related to Petraeus case
WASHINGTON The Defense Department is conducting a
new leaks investigation related to the sex scandal that led to the
resignation of former CIA Director David Petraeus, The
Associated Press confirmed Monday, the same day Petraeus was
meeting with President-elect Donald Trump
in New York.
Petraeus, who could be in line for a
Cabinet nomination, arrived at Trump
Tower in early afternoon and met with
Trump for about one hour. Trump afterward
tweeted that he was very impressed.
Petraeus said Trump basically walked us

A U.S. official told the AP that investigators were trying to
determine who leaked personal information about Paula
Broadwell, the woman whose affair with Petraeus led to criminal charges against him and his resignation. The information
concerned the status of her security clearance, said the official,
who was not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation by
name and spoke on condition of anonymity.
Disclosure of the Broadwell information without official permission would have been a violation of federal criminal law.
The latest twist in the case could complicate Petraeus
prospects of obtaining a Cabinet position in the Trump administration, resurfacing details of the extramarital affair and FBI
investigation that ended his career at the CIA and tarnished the
reputation of the retired four-star general.

The APs vote-counting operations in

locally hired workers to gather vote totals from

agency also collected votes from secretaries of
state or state election boards.
The AP, which called Democrat Hillary
Clinton the winner in all three states, said its
vote count operation found no significant differences between the county-by-county vote
totals and those released statewide on election
night in California and Virginia. In New
Hampshire, the APs vote totals were reported
directly to the news agency by town clerks and
were verified by AP in most towns before the
count was completed.

Disputes, falsehoods hit transition

By Julie Pace and Catherine Lucey

NEW YORK The drama, disputes and falsehoods that

permeated Donald Trumps presidential campaign are now
roiling his transition to the White House, forcing aides to
defend his baseless assertions of illegal voting and sending
internal fights spilling into public.
On Monday, a recount effort, led by Green Party candidate
Jill Stein and joined by Hillary Clintons campaign also
marched on in three states, based partly on the Stein campaigns unsubstantiated assertion that cyberhacking could
have interfered with electronic voting machines.
Wisconsin officials approved plans to begin a recount as
early as Thursday. Stein also asked for a recount in
Pennsylvania and was expected to do the same in Michigan,
where officials certified Trumps victory Monday.
Trump has angrily denounced the recounts and now claims
without evidence that he, not Clinton, would have won the
popular vote if it hadnt been for millions of people who
voted illegally. On Twitter, he singled out Virginia,
California and New Hampshire. In another series of tweets
Monday, he lashed out at a CNN reporter who had called
Trumps fraud claim baseless.
There has been no indication of widespread election tampering or voter fraud in those states or any others, and
Trump aides struggled Monday to back up their boss claim.
Spokesman Jason Miller said illegal voting was an issue
of concern. But the only evidence he raised was a 2014
news report and a study on voting irregularities conducted
before the 2016 election.
Trump met Monday with candidates for top Cabinet posts,
including retired Gen. David Petraeus, a new contender for secretary of state. Trump is to meet Tuesday with Tennessee Sen.
Bob Corker, who is also being considered more seriously for
the diplomatic post, and Mitt Romney, who has become a
symbol of the internal divisions agitating the transition team.
Petraeus said he spent about an hour with Trump, and he
praised the president-elect for showing a great grasp of a

variety of the challenges that are out there.

Very good conversation and well see where it goes from
here, he said. A former CIA chief, Petraeus pleaded guilty
last year to a misdemeanor charge of mishandling classified
information relating to documents he had provided to his
biographer, with whom he was having an affair.
Trump is expected Tuesday to name Georgia Rep. Tom
Price to lead the Department of Health and Human Services,
said a person familiar with the decision, who insisted on
anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss
the nomination publicly ahead of the announcement.
Vice President-elect Mike Pence, who is heading the transition effort, teased a number of very important announcements tomorrow as he exited Trump Tower Monday night.
Pence is said to be among those backing Romney for
State. Romney was fiercely critical of Trump throughout the
campaign but is interested in the Cabinet position, and they
discussed it during a lengthy meeting earlier this month.
Other top Trump allies, notably campaign manager
Kellyanne Conway, have launched a highly unusual public
campaign to warn the president-elect that nominating
Romney would be seen as a betrayal by his supporters.
Conways comments stirred speculation that she is seeking
to either force Trumps hand or give him cover for ultimately passing over Romney.
Three people close to the transition team said Trump had
been aware that Conway planned to voice her opinion, both
on Twitter and in television interviews. They disputed
reports that Trump was furious at her and suggested his decision to consider additional candidates instead highlighted
her influence.
Conway served as Trumps third campaign manager and
largely succeeded in navigating the minefield of rivalries
that ensnared other officials. Trump is said to have offered
her a choice of White House jobs either press secretary or
communications director. But people with knowledge of
Conways plans say she is more interested in serving as an
outside political adviser, akin to the role President Barack
Obamas campaign manager David Plouffe played.

Rebels collapsing in Eastern Aleppo


BEIRUT Syrian government forces

captured more than a third of oppositionheld eastern Aleppo on Monday, touching
off a wave of panic and flight from the
besieged enclave as rebel defenses in the
countrys largest city rapidly collapsed.
The dramatic gains marked an inflection
point in Syrias nearly 6-year-old conflict,
threatening to dislodge armed opponents of
President Bashar Assad from their last major
urban stronghold.
Reclaiming all of Aleppo, Syrias former
commercial capital, would be the biggest
prize of the war for Assad. It would put his
forces in control of the countrys four
largest cities as well as the coastal region,
and cap a year of steady government
It also would bolster his position and
momentum just as a new U.S. administration is taking hold, freeing thousands of his
troops and allied militiamen to move on to
other battles around the country.

Charles Lister, a senior fellow at the

Washington-based Middle East Institute,
said the oppositions losses in Aleppo are
the biggest since 2012.
Aleppo city itself has also been a consistent base of moderate opposition activity, so its collapse spells what could be an
existential blow to the moderate opposition from which itll likely struggle to
recover, he said.
Ever since it joined the uprising four
years ago, eastern Aleppo tried to make
itself a model for a Syria without Assad. It
elected local leaders, ran its own education
system and built an economy trading with
the rebel-held countryside and neighboring
Its residents kept life going amid ferocious fighting with the pro-government
western districts, but four years of battles
and airstrikes have reduced entire blocks in
the territory to rubble.
Helped by massive Russian air power and
thousands of Iranian-backed Shiite militia
fighters from Lebanon, Iraq and Iran, Assad

renewed his push for Aleppo this month.

The besieged eastern districts came under
intense airstrikes that killed hundreds in the
past two weeks.
More than 250,000 people are believed
trapped there with limited access to food,
water and medical supplies. They include
more than 100,000 children, the U.N. says.
It is stinging cold, food is scarce and
people are shaken in the streets,
Mohammad Zein Khandaqani, a member of
the Medical Council in Aleppo, told The
Associated Press in a text message from
eastern Aleppo.
Troops moved quickly Saturday into the
Hanano neighborhood, the first time they
had pushed that far into eastern Aleppo
since 2012. On Monday, they moved into
the Sakhour district, putting much of the
northern part of the citys besieged rebelheld areas under government control.
With the capture of Sakhour, the rebels are
now boxed in mostly in central and southeastern Aleppo, encircled by government

Why I didnt vote for Clinton
In the story, Locals digest Trump presidential win in the Nov. 10 edition of the Daily
Journal, students at the College of San
Mateo question how Hillary Clinton could
have lost. As a registered Democrat who did
vote, this is my answer.
I have been a Clinton supporter since I first
voted for Bill Clinton in the early 1990s.
My support for Hillary stopped when I found
out that she used a private server to conduct
State Department business.
It is my belief that government is a necessary evil that can become oppressive to the
people it governs. Our founders instituted a
system of checks and balances to counter
this very real threat.
Government oversight, a free press and the
Freedom of Information Act are used to
counter this threat. By conducting State
business on a private server, Secretary Clinton circumvented all three of these
safeguards. Think about it. Not even a court
approved FOIA request could have pried any
information from this server.
This information was not only kept from
us, but lost to future historians.
Such prevention of transparency makes Ms.
Clinton unfit to hold any office of public trust.
She could have won me back if she had said
something like,I am sorry for setting up
this server and did not consider its effect on
government transparency. I will make all
government business available to government archiving agencies. She did not do
that. Instead she said her actions were perfectly acceptable.
I still have great respect for her abilities and
am saddened that we will lose that talent.

Japanese internment
and the Muslim registry
Like many of my friends involved with the
Japanese-American community, I am pretty
shocked by Carl Higbies suggestion that
Japanese internment camps are a precedent
for establishing a Muslim registry. It finally
dawned on me that this was actually planned
and deliberately crafted to appeal to a particular demographic of the electorate. Higbies
comments were not accidental, and his continued refusal to retract this statement
reminded me of disturbing reports issued during the primaries.
In early 2016, articles published about
polling data indicated that voters were directly asked if they approved of Japanese
internment camps. In Iowa, 48 percent of

Jerry Lee, Publisher

Jon Mays, Editor in Chief
Nathan Mollat, Sports Editor

Trump voters approved of the use of these

camps. In South Carolina, 32 percent of
Trump voters supported internment. The
question I asked myself is Why? Why
would this question even be asked?
Voters were asked how they feel about the use
of presidential executive orders, and followup questions ask their view of various historic
executive orders, including the Emancipation
Proclamation, the desegregation of the Army
and Roosevelts infamous Executive Order
9066 that led to Japanese internment.
One can only speculate on the motives behind Higbies statements, but the Trump
campaign and those with designs behind the
Muslim Registry have seen this polling information. They know that the idea of
Japanese internment as a precedent for a
Muslim Registry is accepted among a specific group of voters, and they will continue
to press this idea because it is becoming normalized as political leverage that appeals to
the Trump base.
This is not just the random rambling of a
crazy guy. This is a carefully crafted strategy
designed to take away the civil liberties of
citizens of the United States.

Hollow YIMBY argument

Weve recently been barraged with the message that the silver bullet to kill rising rents
is to build more housing. A friend recently put
to rest this hollow YIMBY argument:
Building market rate housing doesnt bring
rents down to rates that people with even the
median income can afford. It creates new demand for additional affordable housing [...]
because the new high income residents dont
provide (many) essential services for each
other. They need low-and-moderate income
workers to provide services for them (retail
sales, food service, etc.).

For market rate rents to drop to the point

where a person making the median income
could afford them under classic housing affordability standards (rent comprising 1/3 of
take-home pay), theyd need to drop by approximately 50 percent from their current
levels. If that happens, well be in economic
free-fall. We cannot build our way out of this
problem by burying ourselves in larger and
larger amounts of market rate housing.
Newly built affordable housing will only
have limited positive impact for existing
residents, because Fair Housing laws make
everyone from everywhere just as eligible to
get those units.
Its noteworthy to underscore that affordable housing, based on 30 percent of resident
adjustable gross income, considers all residents when averaging out those figures,
including those making six figure salaries.
So, just remember, when they insist on
bringing more turkeys to the table that you
are footing the bill. After consuming enough
of the fixings, I am ready for a serious diet.

In the recent article New pro-growth group
taking on old notions in the Nov. 15 edition of the Daily Journal about a YIMBY (an
acronym for Yes In My Backyard) group, promoting housing development, it is clear that
the facts are a little mixed up.
The group stated that citizens who bought
homes to San Mateo in the past oppose
growth, which keeps the young from living
in the same area. These people that the group
talks about are the citizens of these towns.
Who better has a say on what happens in
their town? The majority of us worked our
way into these towns. We made our towns
what they are today. We are not against smart
growth, we just define it in different way. If
you want high-density housing and transitoriented development build the
infrastructures first, develop the transportation and parking first, then, only when its
apparent that we can support this type of influx, then come to the citizens and ask
not the other way around.
The quality of life that the group states
everyone deserves comes from people that
have been here and developed that quality of
life. We understand the problem with housing, the real problem though, is that you do
not understand us. NIMBY (Not In My Backyard) till my backyard is ready.

Stocks pull back from records; banks, retailers fall


NEW YORK Stocks pulled

back slightly on Monday, retreating from the records the market set
last week.
Consumer companies and banks
took some of the largest losses.
Small-company stocks, which
have been outperforming the rest
of the market for weeks, gave back
some of their recent gains.
The Dow Jones industrial average lost 54.24 points, or 0.3 percent, to 19,097.90. The Standard
& Poors 500 index lost 11.63
points, or 0. 5 percent, to
2,201.72 and the Nasdaq composite lost 30.11 points, or 0.6 percent, to 5,368.81.
Consumer discretionary stocks
were among the hardest hit, following the closely watched postThanksgiving sales push.
Online retail giant Amazon fell
$13. 60, or 1. 7 percent, to
$766.77 after Citigroup analysts
cut their price target on the stock,
citing deep discounting by the





retailer to compete during the holiday shopping season. Barnes &

Noble fell 30 cents, or 2.3 percent, to $12.50 on reports the
bookseller is also doing deep discounting to attract customers.

Shoppers change Cyber Monday DirecTV wants to


NEW YORK The Monday after

Thanksgiving is still a time when millions of
Americans pause to check out online deals and
check off items from their gift list but a
one-day Cyber Monday frenzy appears to be
going the way of the dial-up modem.
Shoppers who have high-speed connections at home and on their phones are pouncing on deals that stores are spreading out over
several days, leaving the so-called Cyber
Monday online shopping bonanza in danger
of losing its title as the top online sales day.
So instead of doorbuster markdowns on a
select few products, retailers are shifting to a
stream of discounts and alerts during the entire
week via email and social media. Cartwheel,
Targets digital app, started offering holiday
deals including 50 percent off one toy per day
on Nov. 1. Amazon started offering 35 days of
Black Friday deals on Nov. 16. And Walmart

kicked off its Cyber Monday deals on Friday

for the first time as it aimed to grab customers
ahead of its competitors.
The Monday after Thanksgiving has been
the busiest day of the year for online shopping since 2010, and referred to the day when
people returned after the holiday weekend to
offices where they had high-speed internet
Cyber Monday still packs the biggest
punch in terms of a single online shopping
day for now. Shoppers spent $540 million
between midnight and 10 a.m. Eastern time on
Monday, affirming that sales are expected to
total $3.36 billion, up 9.4 percent from a year
ago, according to an early tally by Adobe

But other days are catching up. Adobes forecast puts Cyber Monday neck-and-neck with

be the next online

substitute for cable

NEW YORK There are already a few

online services that aim to replace cable,
but they havent attracted many users yet.
AT&Ts DirecTV hopes to change that.
While just about any person you meet on
the street will tell you cable costs too
much, the vast majority of Americans dont
think its bad enough to cancel. Cheaper
online live-TV services, like Dish
Networks Sling TV and Sonys PlayStation
Vue, remain relatively unknown compared
with Netflix, Hulu and Amazon. And while
theyre easy to order and cancel online and
fairly simple to use, they still have drawbacks.
No one has really delivered the right
combination of content, price and ease that
will get people to make that call to their
current provider and say sayonara, said
Forrester analyst Jim Nail.
Its unclear if AT&Ts new service, creatively dubbed DirecTV Now, will break out
with consumers. But it has the size to get
better deals from entertainment companies,
who have slowly come around to the idea of
streaming. And if that doesnt work, watch
for a live-TV operation from Hulu early next
year. And maybe one from Google. Or, who
knows, maybe even Apple, too.

the business models of entertainment conglomerates. Only people in some markets

can watch broadcast channels like NBC and
Fox in real time. Thats OK if you can wait
to watch the next episode of a TV series, but
sports fans typically want to watch games
And even though so-called cord-cutters
are on a quest for cheaper video, virtual
cable may end costing just as much,
depending on how many sports channels or
other extras you want and how much your
internet costs when its disconnected from
its cable-bundle discount. Bundles from
Sling and Vue range from $20 to $65 a
month. You can pay to add more channels.
These services are easy to sign up for and
cancel but connecting them to a TV often
requires an extra step or a new gadget, like
an Apple TV. On the plus side, while
theyve experienced some technical issues
during major events, service quality
appears to have improved.
And they sometimes lack some of the
best features of both traditional TV (endless
channel options, DVR recording) and subscription TV services like Amazon and
Netflix (no blackouts, no restrictions based
on location if youre in your home country).

Who wants to watch?

Enter DirecTV

If an online cable service could figure out

how to get customers to pay up, it could
attract millions of people.
Americans are increasingly dissatisfied
with how much they pay for whats on TV.
The number of customers paying cable and
satellite operators for TV has dropped nearly 3 million, to roughly 97 million, in the
past two years, according to industry
experts MoffettNathanson Research.
And plenty of people never signed up for
a $100 TV bundle to begin with. Research
firm SNL Kagan estimates that about 14.4
million households pay for internet but not
TV. AT&T sees the potential market for
DirecTV Now as 20 million homes.

The problems with internet TV

New services dont have all the channels
people want. Theres been no perfect solution that lets you pick only your favorite
channels for a reasonable price, a vision of
TV nirvana known as a la carte that has
failed to materialize because it undermines

It appears that DirecTV Now will have

some of those same problems. It still hasnt announced a deal with CBS, which airs
hits like NCIS, The Big Bang Theory
and NFL football games and which has its
own streaming service it wants you to pay
But having the muscle of AT&T and
DirecTV, together the countrys largest
video provider, behind DirecTV Now may
help it shake out more attractive packages
from entertainment conglomerates. AT&T
CEO Randall Stephenson said in October
that the $35-a-month service will offer
more than a hundred premium channels.
That selection would be striking compared to the smaller offerings from competitors, said Macquarie analyst Amy Yong.
AT&T will promote it by letting its cellphone customers watch without using up
their mobile data. But it may not be good
for large families AT&T has said you can
only run it on one or two screens at a time.

Big Ten reprimands Harbaugh

By Ralph D. Russo

The Big Ten reprimanded Michigan

coach Jim Harbaugh and fined the
school $10,000 on Monday for violating the conferences sportsmanship
policy by criticizing officials after the
Ohio State game.
Harbaugh blasted the officiating after
the Wolverines 30-27 double-overtime
loss Saturday in Columbus, Ohio, saying he was bitterly disappointed during a lengthy rant.
He complained about an unsportsman-

like conduct penalty he drew in the second

half of the game when he tossed headphones and a play card, a pass interference
against Michigan that prolonged a key
drive for the Buckeyes and a non-call of
pass interference against Ohio State. He
was most ardent about the spot of a fourthdown play that gave the Buckeyes a first
down in overtime when a stop would have
won the game for the Wolverines.
Ohio State scored the winning touchdown on the next play.
The Big Ten cited its sportsmanship
policy in punishing Harbaugh, saying his
comments were in violation of a portion

that states in part that The Big Ten

Conference expects all contests involving
a member institution to be conducted without compromise to any fundamental element of sportsmanship. Such fundamental
elements include integrity of competition,
civility toward all, and respect, particularly toward opponents and officials.

a perfect game. It also made her a cinch as

As Vandermeer fielded questions smiling
ear to ear in Saturdays postgame, a group of

Menlo to start an impromptu game of catch

The last time Menlo advanced to the state
championship was in 2013, Lida
Vandermeers senior year. She isnt the only
player from that Nor Cal Division IV championship team that fell in the state finals
to Francis Parker-San Diego with a
younger sister on this years squad.
Current senior libero Jessica Houghton,
the only remaining player from the 2013
varsity team, is the older sister of sophomore outside hitter Sianna Houghton. And

No. 10 anything but perfect for Niners

By Josh Dubow

SANTA CLARA Ever since the season opener, the results for the San
Francisco 49ers havent changed each
week: 10 straight losses for the worst
skid in franchise history.
With the playoffs, a winning record
and just about any positive now officially out of reach this season, the
49ers (1-10) are left searching for any
signs of progress that could provide
optimism for the struggling franchise.
Colin Kaepernick provided just that
in Sundays 31-24 loss to the Miami
Dolphins. Kaepernick threw for 296
yards and three touchdowns, ran for 113
yards more and nearly led a late gametying drive before being tackled at the 2
on the final play in a performance that
looked like a flashback at times to when
he emerged as one of the NFLs top
young quarterbacks in 2012 and 13.
Hes made a progression from game
to game where you see improvement
from him, which is what youre looking for, coach Chip Kelly said on a
conference call Monday. I think that
part of it is positive. I think in all
facets, its not just one facet where its
just this and this is all hes done. Its in
everything; his pocket presence, his
accuracy, understanding and knowledge
of protections.
Kaepernicks struggles last season
led to his benching midway through the
year and then he struggled with injuries
all offseason. With his practice time
limited, Kaepernick was beaten out for
the starting job by Blaine Gabbert
before regaining it last month against
After struggling his first two starts
when he completed just 46 percent of
his passes and had a 66.2 rating,
Kaepernick has stepped it up since the
bye week. He has completed 59.3 percent of his passes the past four games
for 1,110 yards, eight TDs, two interceptions and a 96 rating. He has also
rushed for 223 yards in that span, averaging 7.7 yards per carry.
Despite gaining at least 475 yards for
the second time in four games, the
Niners were unable to translate that
into a big scoring output. Garrett Celek

Raiders move on up by
any means necessary
By Josh Dubow

ALAMEDA Khalil Mack has given the Oakland Raiders a

motto to live by this season: By any means.
No matter what hurdles have presented themselves, the Raiders
have proved adept at dealing with them.
Three early starts in the first four weeks. A full week in
Florida between road games. A home
game at high altitude in Mexico City.
Then came the latest example on Sunday
against Carolina. The Raiders came into the
game on a short week after beating Houston
in Mexico City, while the Panthers had
extra time off following a Thursday game.

Bradys blocking suddenly a topic

By Jimmy Golen

Finally, theres a hole in Tom

Bradys game.
The four-time Super Bowl champion admitted Monday that hes a
little lost when called upon to
block for his teammates, saying
hes really a fish out of water when
Im out there.
(I) dont even know what to do
when I get out there, the Patriots
quarterback said in a radio interview a
day after leading New England to a
22-17 win over the New York Jets.
Im looking around at bodies, really
a fish out of water when Im out there.
Things happen so fast. Its like
youre out there on the highway.
Despite missing two days of
practice with a sore knee, Brady
completed 30 of 50 passes for 286
yards and two touchdowns on
Sunday, becoming the fifth NFL
player to surpass 60,000 yards
passing in his career. It also was his
200th career victory, tying Peyton
Manning for the most in league history.
Brady said Monday that he never
thought he would miss the game
because of the injury.

Tiger and Jeter play golf and only one of them is retired
By Doug Ferguson

NASSAU, Bahamas They were voted

rookie of the year 20 years ago in their
respective sports and quickly piled up championships. Tiger Woods and Derek Jeter
finally had a chance to play golf together
Only one of them is retired.
He never played golf when he played
baseball, Woods said after going nine
holes at Albany Golf Club with the former
New York Yankees shortstop. Now that
hes out of baseball, hes addicted to playing golf. From what I had first heard from
some of the guys I know who have played
with him, he slashed it around. But now hes
focused. He likes to practice. He likes to
play. He does his fitting, tries to get better.
You can tell hes analyzing, hes watching,

hes asking questions.

The group included
Tino Martinez,
Olympic gold medalist
Justin Rose.
They played before the
rest of the 18-man field
began arriving for the
Tiger Woods Hero World Challenge, a
holiday event that benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation and suddenly feels a lot more significant because
Woods is coming back after 15 months, the
longest hiatus of his career.
Woods has a new endorsement on his golf
bag (Monster Energy) and a few new pieces
of equipment, mainly a Bridgestone golf
ball, a TaylorMade driver and the old Scotty
Cameron putter he used to win his 14 major

L.A. Galaxy hires Peter Vagenas

as GM, replacing Bruce Arena
Bt Greg Beacham

CARSON Peter Vagenas replaced Bruce

Arena as the LA Galaxys general manager on
Galaxy President Chris Klein promoted
Vagenas, the captain of the Galaxys 2005
MLS championship team. Vagenas will be
involved in the search for a coach to replace
Arena, who was the Galaxys coach and GM
while leading the club to three MLS Cup titles.
Arena returned to the U.S. national team last
Pete has been part of this club since its
early years and embodies everything the
Galaxy stands for, said Klein, Vagenas teammate with the Galaxy for two seasons.
Vagenas also will remain the Galaxys vice
president of soccer operations, his job since
January. The Los Angeles-area native and
UCLA graduate became the director of the LA
Galaxy Academy in 2013 after playing nine of
his 13 MLS seasons with the Galaxy, winning
two MLS Cups.
Not only does he have a deep affection for
the LA Galaxy and knows what were about,
but he also knows what weve been building,
Klein said. Im confident in the value that he
brings to the club in understanding us, and also
understanding the league rules and how we can
best build a team that can be successful.
Klein and Vagenas will be in charge of charting the future for the Galaxy, who face major
changes after the departures of Arena, Robbie
Keane and Steven Gerrard over the past month.

Klein intends to have a

coach in place before
2017, but the Galaxy also
are plotting personnel
moves to bolster their roster after finishing sixth in
the MLS table and losing
in the Western Conference
Klein confirmed LA
Peter Vagenas
Galaxy II coach Curt
Onalfo is the only internal candidate for the
job, but the club plans to interview at least one
international coach. Former Galaxy coach
Sigi Schmid, another UCLA product, also
could be a candidate, Klein said.
A coach has to have a belief not only in our
club, but in our league, Klein said. There are
a number of bright soccer minds around the
world that could easily translate what they do
to our league, but they have to believe in it.
The Galaxy are known for their high-profile
signings of international stars, from David
Beckham and Keane to Gerrard and Giovani Dos
Santos. Yet theyve also invested in player
development while producing a series of homegrown contributors in recent years, including
Gyasi Zardes and defender Daniel Steres.
Klein plans to continue that two-pronged
approach to success after the departures of
Keane and Gerrard, but the Galaxy still have
the core of an MLS contender built around Dos
Santos, Zardes, Sebastian Lletget and a strong
back line led by Jelle Van Damme. Landon
Donovan also might extend his comeback for
another season.

For someone who

began playing only two
years ago, Jeter already
is down to a 10 handicap
and hits it plenty far, usually where hes aiming.
He asked me a bunch
of technical questions
about the game, and I
could hear him pick the
Derek Jeter
brain over there with
Rosie, Woods said. He wants to know.
Hes one of the best athletes who ever lived.
He wants to learn. He asks the right questions.
Jeter ended his career two years ago with
an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth in
his final at-bat. Woods can only dream of
finishing a career like that; he knows that
never happens in golf.
You would think that win a major and

youre done, he said of the perfect end to a

golf career. But if you win a major, youre
going to want to come back and play.
Woods relished the few hours with Jeter,
and referenced an end of the era thing with
him, Jeter and Kobe Bryant, another rookie
in 1996.
We all came in together. We all followed
each other, watched each other, he said.
We all were in the prime of our career,
doing stuff, winning championships, winning majors. When I was having my run, he
was having his run.
The Yankees won the World Series four
times in five years through 2000. Woods
won the Masters in 1997 for his first major,
and he won four more majors in 1999-2000.
Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers won the
NBA title three straight years; Woods won
six majors during that stretch, including an
unprecedented sweep.

Rodgers shows leadership skills on field, leads Pack to win

By Rob Maaddi

PHILADELPHIA Aaron Rodgers threw

Nobody will question his leadership this
Rodgers had 313 yards passing and tossed
two touchdown passes to Davante Adams to
help the Green Bay Packers snap a fourgame losing streak with a 27-13 win over
the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night.
The two-time NFL MVP openly criticized
his teammates while the losses piled up,
causing people to point the finger back at
him for the way he handled it. But Packers
coach Mike McCarthy praised his quarterbacks approach.
His positive attitude has been consistent
through all this time, McCarthy said.

What is clear, though, is that the new
way of crowning a national champion
still falls short of a true playoff system.
In too many ways it still feels like
the BCS, where in some years it was

So for us to finish it off the way we did on

offense the last two drives, defensively to
come up with a stop, and to finish out the
game with a couple of sacks was great for
our confidence.
Green Bay (5-6) wasnt losing because of
Rodgers or the offense. The defense allowed
at least 30 points in each of the four previous games and 89 in the past two. Injuries
on both sides of the ball didnt help the situation.
Rodgers made sure the Packers started
fast, leading them to touchdown drives on
the first two possessions. They took hostile crowd out of the game early and became
the first team to win in Philadelphia (5-6)
this season.
Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers only
managed a field goal against the Eagles in
Week 3. Matt Ryan and the Falcons had
their lowest scoring output (15 points) here
on Nov. 13.

his Buckeyes are in. Nothing is certain, though he and a lot of others

he should have been talking about
how a team that lost by a point at
Iowa and in double overtime at Ohio

Not to worry, though. Leaving

will give him something to really

front of us wed like to accomplish,
Rodgers said. This is a step in the right
direction, a game we needed to take care of
business, but we have a short week with
Houston coming in and we have to have a
similar performance.
Rodgers showed off his accuracy under the
prime-time lights, going 30 for 39. He
made two passes to Adams that will make all
the highlight tapes.
Rodgers threw a perfect 20-yard TD pass
to Adams to give the Packers a 14-7 lead
early in the second quarter. Nolan Carroll
had excellent coverage on the play, but
Rodgers put the ball in a tight spot and hit
Adams in stride in the back of the end zone.
After Ha Ha Clinton-Dix intercepted
Carson Wentz in the third quarter, Rodgers
connected with Adams again. Adams was
covered well on a deep pass, but Rodgers
threw it in the right spot and Adams made an
outstanding over-the-shoulder catch for a
50-yard gain.

starts finding guys ... and making great

comebacks already this season. The latest came Sunday when he
came back from the injury to tie the game midway through the
fourth quarter with a TD pass to Clive Walford and a 2-point conversion to Seth Roberts and then won it with an 82-yard drive to
set up Sebastian Janikowskis game-winning field goal.
One of the things I really love about the NFL is the extreme
highs and lows and we got a good dose of those yesterday, Del
Rio said. Always best when you finish with a win.
Its just the latest clutch performance from Carr, who has
thrived under pressure this season. He has completed 80 of
118 passes (67.8 percent) for 1,109 yards (9.4 yards per
attempt), 10 TDs, one interception and a 122.5 passer rating
when tied or trailing in the fourth quarter or overtime.
The latest comeback might have been most impressive because
of the pain he dealt with after jamming his finger on a fumbled
snap. He managed to come back in after missing one series with
a glove on his right hand and taking all snaps from the shotgun
and there seemed to be no long-term effects from the injury.
Im doing good. Im doing good, Carr said Monday on his
weekly appearance on 95.7 The Game radio station .
Obviously its a little sore, but thats expected. But should be
good. Just get some swelling down and well be all right.
The Raiders are counting on that if they want to end a 13year playoff drought and make a run come January. They
already are having their best season since winning the AFC in
2002 and have realistic hopes of doing much more.
First they will have to negotiate a tough closing stretch to
the season starting with a home game against Buffalo on
Sunday. Oakland then has three road division games in the
final four weeks, including a Thursday night game against the
second-place Chiefs on Dec. 8, as well as the home finale
against Indianapolis on Christmas Eve.
But those are on the back burner for now.
Right now everything were doing is all about Buffalo, Del
Rio said. Its all about Buffalo leading up to this weekend.
No tes : Del Rio said he still expects DL Mario Edwards Jr. to
return this season from a hip injury sustained in the exhibition
opener on Aug. 12. ... Del Rio had no update on the status of
CB DJ Hayden, who left Sundays game with a hamstring
injury. ... CB David Amerson tested out his injured knee before
the game but was not made active. We elected to give him a little more rest and hope to get him back this week, Del Rio said.

What Trump can learn from Obama on health care


WASHINGTON President Barack

Obama took on the problems of a lack of
access to health care and high cost, but he
and Democrats paid a political price.
President-elect Donald Trump has promised
to undo much of what Obama put in place,
and pledged to make the system better.
Although Trump is lacking in specifics,
he seems to want to make costs his priority.
States, insurers, businesses, and individuals
would get more leeway to sort out access.
Health care keenly reflects the countrys
deep political divide. A look at some lessons Trump might learn from Obamas
rough ride:

the artificial lines and

That ignores practical
issues such as whether an
insurer in Houston can
set up a viable network of
doctors in New York.
There are no easy
Donald Trump solutions in health
care, said Jim Capretta,
a health policy expert with the businessoriented American Enterprise Institute.
Whatever is done will necessarily involve
some trade-offs, and winners and losers.
There are political risks associated with
every kind of policy proposal.

The perils of promises

New Medicare and Medicaid

Obama promised that if you like your

health care plan, you can keep it. But then
several million people were threatened with
the loss of policies that didnt conform to
his overhaul. Obama said premiums would
come down, too.
Trump hasnt made such specific promises, yet it may already be too late for him. In
the campaign, Trump made it sound like
replacing the law would be quick and easy,
and people would be widely satisfied with
the results.
Consider his idea for allowing insurers to
sell policies across state lines. Get rid of

As a candidate in 2008, then-Sen. Obama

proposed requiring parents to get health
insurance for their children, one of several
steps to move toward coverage for all. As
president, he embraced a broader individual
mandate requiring most people to be covered. Enforced with fines from the IRS, its
been unpopular from the start.
Separately, Obama and a Democratic-led
Congress financed part of the coverage
expansion in the Affordable Care Act with
cuts in Medicare payments to service
providers. That was an unwelcome surprise
to older people. Even if Medicare cuts

improved the programs

balance sheet, older voters helped deliver the
House to Republicans in
2010, a few months after
Obama signed the overhaul.
Trump has promised
not to cut Medicare, but
Barack Obama Republican leaders in
Congress want to revamp
the program to provide future retirees with a
fixed amount to purchase private insurance.
Will Trump go along?
Trump initially also said he wouldnt cut
Medicaid, the health care program for lowincome people. During the campaign,
though, his views shifted to backing a
block grant that would limit federal
money to states and could result in big cuts.
Medicare and Medicaid have been around
for more than 50 years and are politically
Republicans, dont equate the programs
with the health law. So Trump could be left

Going it alone
Democrats passed the 2010 law over solid
GOP opposition. Progressives blamed
Republican obstinacy and said the overhaul
contained many provisions with a centrist,
even Republican, pedigree. But the lack of

bipartisan support stoked years of opposition.

Trumps ability to win over some
Democrats will determine whether his ideas
are remembered as a fleeting lurch to the
political right or a lasting course correction.
At the moment, its hard to detect any
glimmer of bipartisanship.
If President Trump succeeds in getting
the ACA repealed, he and the Republicans
will own Americas health care system,
said Ron Pollack of Families USA, a leading
advocate for Obamas law. As tens of millions of people lose coverage, the blame
will go squarely onto the shoulders of those
who engineered the repeal.

People live here

When Obama signed the measure into law,
Democrats hailed it as the fulfillment of historic aspirations to close the last major
hole in the nations social safety net.
If Trump gets to sign repeal and replace
legislation, the rhetoric will be about getting government off peoples backs and
giving consumers the options they really

House to vote on bill aimed at speeding drug approval


WASHINGTON The House plans to vote

Wednesday on a $6.3 billion bill aimed at
speeding federal approval of drugs and medical
devices and boosting biomedical research.
The legislation, a priority for congressional leaders in the lame-duck session, seeks to
streamline how federal regulators assess the
safety of new treatments and let them reach
markets more quickly. It provides new money
for the National Institutes of Health and Food
and Drug Administration, including funding
for the White Houses cancer moonshot and
precision medicine initiatives.
The bill also would seek $1 billion in grants
to states to fight opioid abuse.
Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., who chairs the
House Energy and Commerce Committee,
announced details of the draft bill Saturday
along with Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.,
chair of the Senate Committee on Health,

Weed is winning, but the train could still go off track

By Kristen Wyatt

Stricter regulations


DENVER Weed is winning in the polls,

with a solid majority of Americans saying
marijuana should be legal. But does that
mean the federal government will let dozens
of state pot experiments play out? Not by a
long shot.
The government still has many means to
slow or stop the marijuana train. And
President-elect Donald Trumps nomination
of Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions to be the next
attorney general has raised fears that the
new administration could crack down on
weed-tolerant states 20 years after
California became the first to legalize medical marijuana.
We need grown-ups in charge in
Washington to say marijuana is not the kind
of thing that ought to be legalized. It ought
not to be minimized, that its in fact a very
real danger, Sessions said during an April
Senate hearing.
The Controlled Substances Act bans pot
even for medical purposes. A closer look at
some of the governments options for
enforcing it:

Take em to court
The government rarely invokes its
authority to sue states, but its the quickest
path to compliance. The Justice Department
could file lawsuits on the grounds that state
laws regulating pot are unconstitutional
because they are pre-empted by federal law.
Something similar happened in 2010,
when the Justice Department successfully
sued Arizona to block an immigration law
that conflicted with federal immigration
Federal courts can also compel action, not
just block it, as in Kentucky last year, when
a county clerk was ordered to issue marriage
licenses to same-sex couples following a
landmark Supreme Court ruling.
Twenty-eight states and Washington,
D.C., allow marijuana for medical or recreational purposes. The government has yet
to sue any of them.

Raid pot businesses

The government could avoid court entire-

ly if it doesnt mind a more expensive
option: law-enforcement raids.
The Drug Enforcement Administration
retains the legal ability to shut down anyone selling or growing pot, but there has
been no coordinated federal attempt to close
pot producers in multiple states. The agency
has said repeatedly that it does not have the
resources to pursue ordinary pot users.
Any change in that approach would likely
require more money from Congress, which
just saw many of its constituents vote in
favor of legalization. And a federal agency
probably will not spend limited resources
busting people growing pot for personal
use, said John McKay, a former U.S. attorney in Washington state.
Who is going to stop people from smoking pot in a residence in Denver? Federal
agents? he said. They are going to stop
doing terrorism investigations and start
arresting people for pot? That, to me, is
Still, a series of raids could upend the
marijuana landscape and chill investment

in the fledgling industry.

Financial hurdles
Its the biggest complaint in the weed business: taxes.
Businesses selling marijuana cannot use tax
breaks or incentives offered to other small
businesses, and some of them say they pay 80
percent or more of every dollar on taxes and
fees. They have limited access to banking
because many financial institutions are leery
of the paperwork they are required to file on
clients working with marijuana.
Colorado officials tried last year to ease the
banking burden by setting up a special credit
union to safely handle pot-shops money,
only to see the Federal Reserve Bank and federal courts block the effort.
As long as Congress and the new administration leave those hurdles in place, the marijuana business will grow haltingly. Voters
may generally support pot legalization, but
few have sympathy for a pot entrepreneur
unable to become a multimillionaire because
of banking obstacles.

Government officials who are skeptical of

marijuana but also leery of going against public opinion can use regulation and red tape to
slow commercial pot.
Legalization opponents frequently decry
the strength of todays marijuana, an argument that provides political cover for pot
skeptics who once used the drug themselves
and gives legalization opponents a backdoor
route to blocking weed.
In Colorado, for example, marijuana skeptics nearly succeeded earlier this year in getting state lawmakers to cap commercial pot
potency. The proposal would have banned
some 80 percent of the pot products on
Delays can be just as damaging. Even in
Colorado, the first state out of the gate with
recreational stores, businesses complain of
long waits to get permits or licenses. A few
shops were hobbled in 2015 when Denver
health authorities raised alarms about pesticides and banned the sale of thousands of
In Alaska, voters legalized pot in 2014, but
shops are only just now opening.
Washington state spent more than a year
mulling rules for the pot business.

Not everyone all in

The marijuana industry has grown under
three presidents, each opposed to legalized
The Obama administration has generally
shied away from pursuing commercial operators who comply with state-level rules. When
states began pushing the marijuana experiment beyond the medical realm, former
Attorney General Eric Holder urged them to

Marijuana activists say the pot experiment
is too far along for anyone to stop, but the
industry is anxious. When Sessions was

email to supporters, was our worst nightmare.

ing San Mateo, Redwood City, San Carlos,
Menlo Park, the county and soon San Bruno, in
requiring commercial builders to contribute
money toward locally-controlled affordable
housing funds.
Recognizing new commercial buildings create new jobs that consequentially exacerbate
the demand for housing, the council agreed its
time for developers to share in their profits.
Given the economic climate today and the
amount of money the developers are making, I
think its only fair for them to contribute, pay
their fair share to the economy and those who
are working 40 hours a week and still cannot
afford to live on the Peninsula, said
Councilman Sam Hindi, according to a video of
last weeks meeting.
Cities throughout the county are considering
how to help bridge the gap of nearly 55,000
jobs versus just 3,000 new units of housing
being created over the last few years. Now,
theyre looking to regulate employers and
developers by considering linkage fees as a way
to have commercial builders fund affordable
housing goals. Foster City, along with most
cities throughout the county, participated in the

21 Elements Nexus study that outlined linkage

fee rates that wouldnt be overly burdensome to
developers while providing communities with a
new source of funding.
Foster Citys fees, slightly higher than others in San Mateo County, include charging
$12.50 per square foot of new hotel space,
$6.25 per square foot of retail space, and
$27.50 for each foot of new office developments. The fees will only be applied to net new
developments meaning if a builder tears
down an existing 100,000-square-foot office
park and creates a 150,000-square-foot campus,
they would only be charged on the new 50,000
square feet of space.
With a variety of projects in the pipeline and
based on future buildout, staff estimates the fees
could generate tens of millions of dollars over
the next decade.
Vice Mayor Charlie Bronitsky said he typically falls on the side of caution when considering whether government should regulate private
industry. But as commercial developers appear
uninterested in willingly contributing toward
affordable housing needs, its appropriate for
the city to step in, he said.
No one wants to do anything to help the situation, so youve got to act. I think the private industry has given us no options,
Bronitsky said. When you look at the amount
of money these companies are making, these
are reasonable fees to accomplish a reasonable

Many councilmembers noted more people are
driving from further away to work on the
Peninsula due to the lack of affordable housing
options so, in a sense, the fees could help reduce
traffic and benefit the environment.
During their meeting Nov. 21, many councilmembers expressed frustration with past
developers both commercial and housing
that expanded in their community but failed to
uphold promises.
Mayor Herb Perez said companies or office
developers not doing their part and builders that
end up selling housing units for nearly double
what theyd initially claimed were shameful
and discouraging.
So the question is what do we do as legislators to prevent bad actors from fulfilling their
promise to the community? To provide us with
adequate funds when they gleam the benefit
from our community? Perez said.
The council previously stalled on approving
the fees as some first sought direction on how
the money should be spent. Faced with a number of residents adamantly opposed to any new
units being built in the traffic-plagued foursquare-mile city, the council agreed the funds
from the linkage fees could be used to retain
existing affordability-restricted units slated to
Affordable housing advocates urged the council to adopt the impact fees, emphasizing the

Zywiciel compares his music to the stylings of John Mayer, Ed
Sheeran or Sam Smith, who have risen to fame in recent years as
solo singers and songwriters with broad pop appeal.
Though he is reluctant to assign a specific genre to his tunes,
Zywiciel said he will embrace any affiliation with the superstars
he has been likened to by fans.
Ill take that comparison, he said, of the parallels to Mayer,
Sheeran and Smith. I dont mind being compared to them at all.

is the next goal on Zywiciels list.

Leora Tanjuatco, policy director with the

Councilwoman Catherine Mahanpour said
she supported the funds being used toward anything reasonably related to affordable housing,
but wants to ensure they dont overly deter businesses.
I think we just need to make sure were planning for the future and need to be nimble because
the economy could take a downturn,
Mahanpour said.
She and Councilman Gary Pollard raised concerns about giving developers a 25 percent
reduction on the fees for paying construction
workers area standard wages. Instead, they preferred Hindis proposal to consider a citywide
requirement that developers looking to build be
required to pay workers a livable wage, also noting the city has negotiated with builders for
higher wages as part of the development agreement process.
Ultimately, the council decided to provide the
discount but may take up the matter through a
citywide ordinance at a later date.

And I want to give back to the community.
He said his perspective has been influenced by the exposure to
different cultures he has performed for while on the road. But with
his first tour ending back near his home turf, Zywiciel said he
appreciates the opportunity to perform for the people who initially inspired him to launch his career.
This is really one of the best places to grow up, and to come
back here and share my music and perspective, I couldnt think of
a better place to do that, he said. I want to travel more and keep
sharing, but San Mateo and the Bay Area in general have been
such a great place to grow out of and be influenced by.

Though no decision is set to be made during the upcoming meeting, city staff is
seeking guidance from councilmembers
regarding the shape and scope of the agreement in coming years, according to the
Development, LLC] and their drive to redevelop a large part of Oyster Point has created an urgency to examine the long-range
relationship between the city and the district, and to modify or alternatively to terminate, the JPA, according to the report.
Oyster Point Development, LLC is the
initiative spearheaded by the Greenland
Group of China to spend an estimated $1.5
billion revitalizing more than 80 acres of
property along the northern portion of the
Bayshore in South San Francisco, east of
Highway 101. The project was previously
proposed and entitled to Shorenstein
Properties, but it fell fallow prior the development rights being acquired in June.

The builder has expressed an interest in

constructing the project to house office as
well as research and development space for
companies to occupy in the heart of South
San Franciscos thriving biotechnology
As part of the project, the Greenland
Group offered to sponsor a variety of infrastructure fixes to help accommodate the
anticipated uptick in demand for accessing
the area. Examples of the proposed fixes
include trail rehabilitation, street repairs
and new athletic fields.
Many of the improvements were authorized in negotiations between city officials
and the developer, but the Harbor District
will retain control of management, maintenance and operation of the nearby marina
according to terms of the joint powers
agreement, which will dissolve in 2026.
Once the agreement ends, the city is slated to take on control of the marina, according to a city report.
Action now to revise and/or terminate
early the JPA is advisable given the development activity by [Oyster Point
Development, LLC], and the potential for
the district to begin winding down operations and capital improvement in advance

some of the lowest incomes in the area and may also be one
of the first to apply for funds from Measure K a countywide sales tax voters recently extended and agreed should be
spent on affordable housing.
I think its fantastic to support the whole community
and to ensure that theres housing dedicated for everybody,
especially in such a difficult place to afford to live, said
San Mateo Mayor Joe Goethals. And it is a testament to
the city councils that came before me.
In its approval of Bay Meadows, the city negotiated for
the land as a way to ensure an estimated 15 percent of the
more than 1,100 residences would be set aside as affordable.
Most of the affordable units are sprinkled throughout the
site and the Bridge development will represent the sole
property completely dedicated as affordable. San Mateo will
provide the city-owned 1-acre site to Bridge through a $1
annual ground lease for 99 years. The site is now on its way
to become home to renters making between 30 percent and
60 percent of the areas median income which is between
$33,000 and $66,000 for a family of three, according to a
staff report.
It really was very prudent of the past city councils who
negotiated the development agreement to include this 1acre parcel for affordable housing, said Deputy Mayor
David Lim. Diversity is very important for our community
as a whole; so its nice to know theres going to be a range
of socioeconomic diversity at Bay Meadows.
Aside from providing the land, the city will also provide
a $2 million loan to Bridge. The city chose Bridge, one of
the states largest nonprofit developers, to build the one-,
two- and three-bedroom apartments at the property off
Delaware Street near 28th Avenue.
We have been watching this site for a long time, said
Ali Gaylord, Bridge director of Northern California development. Bridge has a long history of doing transit-oriented developments so this fits right in with our wheelhouse.
The site is centrally located near the Caltrain line and,
once the grade separation project at 28th Avenue is com-


of the termination date, according to the

A 455-boat slip marina, yacht club, boutique hotel, 33-acre park and terminal for a
commuter ferry currently run from the marina just six miles north of the San Francisco
International Airport. The city owns the
marina and park, but allows the district to
manage operations under an agreement
established in 1977.
A new or amended joint powers agreement
could also be established through collaboration between the district and the city.
Under recommendation of a hired consultant, the city should not take on operations
at the marina, but instead hire a professional company with more experience to handle
the task, should control shift hands, according to the report.
When the Oyster Point development was
initially entitled in 2011, the deal included
opportunities for partnership between the
city and the private builder such as development of new open space, hotel development, Bay Trail improvements and more.
The city set aside $30 million in money
generated by the former redevelopment
agency dedicated to be paid in collaboration
with the builder toward infrastructure

pleted and the Hillsdale Caltrain Station relocated, this

development will have great access to mass transit along El
Camino Real, Gaylord said.
Winfield Hill, a subsidiary of Bridge, will develop the site
and a public hearing and planning process will ensue allowing time for community input. Bridge has chosen architect
Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects, which designed the neighboring Nueva School and is expected to create a cohesive
feel for the neighborhood, Gaylord said.
The nonprofit must also outline a financing plan to support the estimated $50 million project. Bridge is expected
to apply for federal tax credits, as well as traditional financing from private or public sources. Gaylord said Bridge is
also hoping San Mateo County may begin to release offers
for Measure K funds. Earlier this month, voters approved
extending Measure A, the countywide half-cent sales tax,
after proponents proclaimed it as a way to support affordable housing needs.
Gaylord said shes hoping construction could begin in
As with many affordable housing projects that require an
assembly of financing, land is often a key component and a
citys donation can help jump-start development. San
Mateo officials are familiar in leveraging city assets toward
affordable housing goals and are in the midst of considering
doing so again at two other parcels near downtown, which
have been targeted for workforce housing and public parking.
Gaylord said shes impressed with the dedication San
Mateo staff and the council have shown thus far.
The councilmembers are always very focused on how to
address the affordable housing crisis in San Mateo, theyre
doing great from a leadership perspective, Gaylord said.
The value they can provide [with the land] and the forethought of requiring a certain percentage of affordable is
critical, especially at a transit-oriented site. Allowing
people to live there that have lower incomes as well, is part
of the foresight of the planning process.

improvements in the area.

As part of the upcoming discussion, the
council will address proposed potential
improvements throughout the area, as well
as the variety of opportunities for future
projects near the marina. Another similar
discussion is set for the City Council early
next year, according to the report.
But with a sizable undertaking looming
on the horizon, city officials believe more
clarity should be established regarding management and operations of the area near the
biotechnology development, according to
the report.
Staff recommends exploring revisions to
the existing JPA, forging a new partnership
with the district under a more comprehensive JPA providing clearer guidance for
future operations, maintenance and governance at [Oyster Point Marina], according
to the report.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Council of the City
of San Bruno, California (the City) at its meeting on, Wednesday, November 9, 2016, held a Public Hearing, waived the
first reading and introduced the following ordinance, then on
Tuesday, November 22, 2016, at its regular meeting, the City
Council waived the second reading and adopted the following
ordinance. The ordinance amends and replaces Chapter
12.230 of Title 12 (Land Use) of the San Bruno Municipal
Code to establish an affordable housing program and affordable housing impact fees for new residential and nonresidential
development projects in San Bruno.
ORDINANCE SUMMARY: The ordinance is supported by a
residential impact nexus study and a commercial linkage
nexus study prepared for the City of San Bruno, which analyzed the need for affordable housing associated with new development, and included the calculation of fees based on the
nexus analysis and the affordability gap between what lower
income households can afford to pay and the cost of developing new housing units. The nexus studies established that the
fees and related affordable housing requirements established
by this ordinance are reasonably related to the need for affordable housing associated with development projects in the San
The adoption of the ordinance is not a project under the California Environmental Quality Act because the ordinance creates a governmental funding mechanism which does not involve any commitment to a specific project that may result in a
potentially significant effect on the environment. (CEQA
Guidelines Section 15378(b)(4).)
A copy of the ordinance and the Impact Fee Nexus Studies
are available for review at the office of the City Clerk, 567 El
Camino Real, San Bruno, CA 94066.
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that if you challenge the adoption of
the ordinance in court, you may be limited to raising only those
issues you or someone else raised at public hearings before
the City of San Bruno or in written correspondence delivered
to the City of San Bruno at, or prior to, the public hearing.
Please call (650) 616-7053 with any questions.
