Democrats get supermajority


Democratic control of both houses of the California Legislature could spark conflicts in party
By Jonathan J. Cooper
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO Now that voters have


created Democratic supermajorities in
both houses of the California Legislature,
they should expect to see more conflict
between liberals and moderates in the
party and even tension with Gov. Jerry

Brown, another Democrat.


Republicans, meanwhile, will be even
further marginalized, without any leverage
to extract concessions from Democrats or
make an imprint on state government.
The latest election results show that
Democrat Josh Newman won a Republicanheld Senate seat, giving his party the final
position it needed for the supermajority.

With control of two-thirds of the seats in


the Assembly and Senate, as well as the
governors office, Democrats if they
want to could raise taxes, ignore legislative rules or pass emergency legislation.
In reality though, theyll only be able to
exercise that power if they can agree unanimously.
Steep ideological differences within the

party have already derailed the passage of


environmental and labor regulations that
didnt even require a supermajority.
The Democrats appetite for using their
power will be tested on issues such as allocating funding to repair crumbling roads
and bridges, and ending legal uncertainty

Construction workers put the finishing touches on the new Seymour Bridge in Half Moon Bay, which was installed Tuesday
as part of the citys efforts to protect the California Coastal Trail from bluff top erosion.

Visitors looking to stroll along the


California Coastal Trail in Half Moon
Bay may soon find themselves taking
a slight detour through a cypress tree
grove after bluff top erosion prompted
the city to relocate a pedestrian bridge.
Construction crews successfully
hauled the new Seymour Bridge down
toward the publics beloved winding
coastal trail and installed the new
structure immediately south of Poplar
State Beach Tuesday morning.
The existing well-used connector is

being compromised by one of the


citys and countys most challenging
natural problems coastal erosion.
The old bridge, which will be
removed in the coming weeks, seemingly hovers over a drainage ditch that
has widened due to runoff trickling
down from the mountains before
steeply dropping off to the beach
below. In an effort to keep a marked
path accessible to the public, the city
officially began the process of relocating the bridge earlier this year.
State law and our citys local
coastal program make protecting and
enhancing public access to the coast a

key part of our mission; and our economy and quality of life depends on it,
said Vice Mayor Debbie Ruddock. The
situation with the Seymour Bridge, a
critical link in our coastal trail, brings
into clear focus the perils of constant
and increasing erosion of shoreline
access and the need to act proactively.
It took crews just a few hours to
install the new bridge about 135 feet
inland. The old 48-foot-long bridge
made in part from an old rail car will
soon be torn down.
Replacing the bridge was the first

Hundreds rally at SFO for wage increases


By Daniel Montes
BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

About 900 people rallied at San


Francisco International Airport Tuesday
afternoon to demand higher wages as part
of a national Day of Disruption.
Around noon, a crowd made up of
activists, fast-food workers, airport workers, Uber and Lyft drivers, janitors and
home care and child care providers arrived
at the airports International Terminal to
rally, according to organizers.
The group demanded that corporations
and cities pay workers at least $15 an hour
and grant them rights to unionize, organizers said.
South Bay resident Francis Ballecer, who
works part time at Mineta San Jose
International Airport, joined the SFO rally
to demand higher wages for airport employees.
Ballecer said he has asked for more hours
at his job but hasnt received them and is
having a hard time supporting his kids and
his wife, who works two jobs herself.

SAN JOSE Heavily armed deputies in

empty-handed.
Fugitive inmates Rogelio Chavez and
Laron Campbell escaped last Wednesday
from Santa Clara Countys main jail by cutting through the bars covering a secondstory window and then rappelling to the
ground on a bedsheet.

throughout the county after receiving tips of

live in Silicon Valley and its really expensive.
According to airport spokesman Doug
Yakel, the rally did not cause any disruptions to any flights and no one was arrested.
The rally was part of a larger national day
of action in which many employees have
walked off their jobs to participate in rallies happening at nearly 20 major airports
and McDonalds restaurants to call attention to low wages, according to organizers.
Earlier Tuesday morning, 27 people were
arrested during a Day of Disruption rally in
Oakland.
Between 150 and 200 people marched
along International Boulevard, starting at
102nd Avenue and ending at 98th Avenue.
Once at the intersection, many of the
marchers began blocking traffic, police
said.
Officers arrested protesters there on suspicion of obstructing traffic. Those arrested
were eventually cited and released, according to police.
California and many Bay Area cities have

taken measures recently to slowly increase


their minimum wages with hopes of ultimately bringing it to $15 an hour.
Earlier this month, the San Jose City
Council unanimously approved raising the
current $10.30 minimum wage in $1.50
increments, which would ultimately bring
it to $15 by Jan. 1, 2019.
In August, the Berkeley City Council
approved increasing the citys minimum
wage to $13.75 on Oct. 1, 2017, and then
to $15 on Oct. 1, 2018.
In July, San Francisco also increased its
minimum wage from $12.25 to $13 an hour
as part of a series of increases that will see
the citys hourly wage climb to $15 by
2018.
This summer, the San Mateo City Council
also increased its minimum wage to $15 an
hour by Jan. 1, 2019, with the first increase
from $10 to $12 an hour beginning Jan. 1,
2017, with nonprofits rising to $10.50 at
that time and up to $15 an hour by Jan. 1,
2020.
Prior to that, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a
law in April that will raise the states hourly
minimum wage for most employees to $15
an hour by 2022.

Some voters, stung by election result, stirred to new action


By Matt Sedensky
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Three weeks out from a


presidential election result that left them
deeply dejected, many liberals now say
theyve been roused to action in new ways,
from making donations and volunteering to
considering political runs themselves.
Around the country, even as protests have
waned, Democrats say the sting of loss has
left an impact unlike any past race, stirring
previously passive citizens to push beyond
their initial tears and angry Facebook posts
following Donald Trumps win. Though
post-election fervor has spurred conservatives to action as well, the gut-punch of a
presidential loss has particularly energized
those on the left.
Brad Goar, a 56-year-old from Jupiter,
Florida, made a flurry of moves he saw as
constructive responses. He donated to
Planned Parenthood and upped his monthly

gift to Bernie Sanders organization; he


joined the American Civil Liberties Union
and began volunteering at an organization
that helps undocumented immigrants. He
even invited a couple who voted for Trump to
join him and his husband at their home for
drinks, appetizers and some airing of electoral differences, which was mostly cordial
all around.
Ive never gotten my butt out of the chair
before, Goar said. But I see this as a dangerous turning point.
As some, like Goar, reached out to understand the political opposition, others have
hoisted a sign in protest for the first time.
Some have felt so rattled they say theyre
making more life-altering changes.

Brooke Streech, a 44-year-old Phoenix


woman, is in the latter camp, having told her
boss two days after the election that she
would be quitting her job in finance. Her last
day is Jan. 3, and while she isnt entirely sure
what comes next, shes just certain she wants
to be doing something that feels more meaningful.
Streech has weathered a divorce, and both
her parents are sick with cancer. She isnt
even a Democrat, but she found Trumps candidacy revolting and his victory among the
greatest tragedies of her life. Even as she
struggles to find her footing on what to do
now, she feels shes been stirred like never
before.
It woke me up in a new way, she said. I

can only describe it as a moment of clarity.


Kerry Johnson, a 41-year-old New York
woman, described it in almost identical
terms. After getting over the shock and rage,
she began a checklist of things she hopes
serve as both a counter to Trumps rise and a
reaffirmation of goodness in the U.S. She
scheduled a platelet donation and is planning
to take part in a planned womens march in
Washington; she spent Thanksgiving helping at a shelter for women and children and is
looking for longer-range volunteer opportunities. She says shes always considered herself good-intentioned but has been motivated to act in new ways.
There is definitely an opportunity to play
your role and move us forward, she said.
On the winning side, Republican dominance in state legislatures has some conservatives rallying for a constitutional convention to consider amendments on congressional term limits or a balanced federal budget.

Local briefs
Man pleads no contest to bilking in-law
A man accused of stealing $184,000 from his brother-inlaw while living with him in Belmont pleaded no contest to
elder abuse and identity theft charges on Monday, prosecutors said.
Andrew Higgins, 70, was sentenced to more than two
years in jail for the thefts from his 79-year-old brother-inlaw, who let Higgins stay with him after he got divorced and
lost his job, according to the San Mateo County District
Attorneys Office.
The victim, a double amputee, agreed to help Higgins out
as long as he pitched in with grocery shopping and other
tasks around the house.
But when the victim gave Higgins his banking information so he could help paying bills, Higgins took advantage
of his brother-in-laws generosity, taking money for himself without permission, prosecutors said.
Eventually the victims son was notified in the spring of
2015 by his fathers care home that his father had been
missing payments. The son checked his fathers bank
accounts and discovered that $184,000 was missing from
12 accounts, prosecutors said.
Higgins was charged with felony elder abuse, identity
theft and felony theft charges and pleaded not guilty last
December.
On Monday, he agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors to
plead no contest to two of the charges in exchange for a
sentence of no more than three years in prison.
Judge Elizabeth Lee then sentenced him to two years and
seven months in jail followed by five months of supervised
release. He has been in custody on $150,000 bail and
already has nearly two years credit for time served.
In addition to the prison sentence, Higgins was ordered to
pay $158,256.89 in restitution to six financial institutions, prosecutors said.

Suspected drunk driver arrested in Pacifica


Police arrested a Pennsylvania man suspected of driving
drunk early Tuesday morning in Pacifica after he allegedly
caused a collision involving two cars and two motorcycles,
police said.
Around 1 a.m., an officer patrolling near Clarendon Road
and Oceana Boulevard noticed a collision that had just
occurred.
Upon closer inspection, the officer saw the collision
involved two motorcycles and two severely damaged vehicles.
Both of the motorcycle riders complained of pain but
they refused treatment. A driver of a vehicle, however, was
taken to a hospital, according to police.
Officers eventually determined the driver who was hospitalized was allegedly under the influence of alcohol and at
fault for the collision, police said.
The driver was identified as 23-year-old Liam Purcell from
Nazareth, Pennsylvania.
After he was medically cleared from the hospital, officers
arrested Purcell on suspicion of driving while under the
influence and causing bodily injury and booked him into
the Maguire Correctional Facility in Redwood City, according to police.

REUTERS FILE PHOTO

President-elect Donald Trump nominated former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, right, the wife
of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, to be his transportation secretary, a source with
knowledge of the decision said on Tuesday.

Elaine Chaos record suggests


skepticism on new safety regs
By Joan Lowy and Jonathan Lemire
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Elaine Chaos record at the


Labor Department suggests shed have a
light hand when it comes to safety regulation as transportation secretary and would
seek to shift responsibility from the federal
government to states where possible.
President-elect Donald Trump announced
Tuesday that Chao was his choice for the
Cabinet post. Secretary Chaos extensive
record of strong leadership and her expertise
are invaluable assets in our mission to
rebuild our infrastructure in a fiscally
responsible manner, Trump said in a statement released by his campaign.
Chao said Trump has outlined a clear
vision to transform our countrys infrastructure, accelerate economic growth and productivity, and create good paying jobs
across the country.
Chao, 63, was labor secretary under
President George W. Bush and the first
Asian-American woman to serve in a presidents Cabinet. She also is the wife of
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of
Kentucky, which might be of some help if
Trump is to fulfill his promise of generating
$1 trillion in infrastructure spending.
Chaos record suggests shed be skeptical

of new safety regulations and may attempt


to roll back existing regulations. Under
Chao, the Occupational Safety and Health
Administration didnt issue a single significant new safety regulation for four years,
and mine safety inspectors were cut and
inspections reduced, said Thomas McGarity,
a University of Texas law professor and
author of Freedom to Harm, a book about
the labor department that includes Chaos
tenure.
Among the pressing issues facing the
next transportation secretary will be how to
boost the nations aging infrastructure so
that it can accommodate population growth
and not become a drag on the economy,
modernizing the nations air traffic control
system, ensuring that new transportation
technologies are adopted in a safe manner
and responding to a surge in traffic fatalities.
Whether its integrating drones into the
national airspace, deploying self-driving
cars or some other new technology, shes
not going to be especially inclined to second-guess the industry when they say that
this will be safe, McGarity said.
As labor secretary, her job was to protect
the nations workforce, including setting
safety standards and addressing issues related to wages and retirement.

WASHINGTON President-elect Donald


Trump is enlisting a trio of nominees with
deep ties to Washington and Wall Street to fill
out his Cabinet, including former Goldman
Sachs executive Steven Mnuchin as secretary
of the Treasury Department.
On Tuesday, Trump also chose Georgia Rep.
Tom Price to oversee the nations health care
system, picking a fierce Obamacare critic
who has championed efforts to privatize
Medicare. And he selected another veteran
Republican, Elaine Chao, a former labor secretary and the wife of Senate Majority Leader
Mitch McConnell, to lead the Department of
Transportation.
Mnuchins official announcement was
expected as early as Wednesday, according to
a person familiar with the decision who
insisted on anonymity in order to confirm the
pick ahead of time.
Mnuchin, 53, led Trumps finance operations during the presidential campaign and
become close with the president-elect and his
family. But he has no government experience, which could prove a hurdle in navigating the tricky politics of Washington.
If confirmed by the Senate, Mnuchin would
play a central role in shaping Trumps tax
policies and infrastructure plans. He would
also lead an agency tasked with implementing international economic sanctions.
Mnuchin is expected to be joined on
Trumps senior economic team by another

financier, Wilbur Ross.


The billionaire investor is
considered the king of
bankruptcy for buying
beaten-down companies
with the potential to
deliver profits.
Trump spent much of
Tuesday in his Manhattan
racing
Donald Trump skyscraper,
through meetings with
prospective administration hires as high-profile vacancies remain none bigger than
secretary of state. He emerged in the evening
for a private dinner with former
Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who is on
the shortlist for the nations chief diplomat.
Romney spoke briefly to reporters after the
meal, saying he has increasing hope that
Trump can lead the country to a better future.
A transition official said the president-elect

Escaping fires meant fleeing


through hell-like landscape
By Steve Mergargee
and Jonathan Mattise
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

GATLINBURG, Tenn. With flames


dripping from tree branches and the air
filled with embers, thousands of people
raced through a hellish landscape as they
fled wildfires that killed three people and
destroyed hundreds of homes and a resort in
the Great Smoky Mountains.
Fanned by hurricane-force winds, the
flames reached the doorstep of Dollywood,
the theme park named after country music
legend and local hero Dolly Parton. But the
attraction was spared significant damage.
The fires spread quickly on Monday
night, when winds topping 87 mph
whipped up the flames, catching residents
and tourists in the Gatlinburg area by surprise. Police banged on front doors and told
people to get out immediately. Some
trekked 20 minutes to catch lifesaving
rides on trolleys usually reserved for tours
and wedding parties.
There was fire everywhere. It was like we
were in hell, said Linda Monholland, who
was working at Park View Inn in Gatlinburg
when she and five other people fled on
foot. Walking through hell, thats what it
was. I cant believe it. I never want to see
something like that again in my life, ever.
Hell opened up, her co-worker Sissy
Stinnett said.
In all, more than 14,000 residents and
tourists were forced to evacuate the tourist
city in the mountains, where some
hotspots persisted and a curfew in place
Tuesday night.
No details on the deaths were immediate-

Beverly Ann DEmilio


Beverly Ann DEmilio, born April 1,
1934, died Oct. 16, 2016, while visiting
relatives in Lompoc, California.
She was born to Hubert and Marie Brown
in Colusa, California. The family moved to
San Francisco where graduated from Notre
Dame High School.
She worked at Hills Brothers, Catholic
Social Services and as a flight attendant for

ly available. More than a dozen people


were injured.
The extent of the damage began to
emerge even as smoke from the wildfires
lingered late Tuesday afternoon.
The Castle, perhaps the largest and most
iconic home in Gatlinburg, was destroyed.
So was Cupids Chapel of Love, a wedding
venue.
Entire churches were gone. Scorched cars
parked outside set on their rims after their
tires had melted away. The only sound came
from the eerie screech of hotel fire alarms
echoing through the empty streets.
Some Christmas decorations on lampposts and utility poles were on fire.
Marci Claude, a spokeswoman for both
the city and the Gatlinburg Convention and
Visitors Bureau, choked up as she surveyed
the damage for the first time on a media
tour.
Im just astonished this is my town,
she said.
On an aerial and driving tour of the damage in and around Gatlinburg, Gov. Bill
Haslam said he was struck by the seemingly random nature of the fire that destroyed
some structures and left others untouched.
Noting that much of the downtown entertainment district was undamaged, Haslam
said it just could have been so much
worse.
As darkness fell on the area near the Great
Smoky Mountains National Park, open
flames could still be seen burning near
razed homes.
A line of strong to marginally severe
storms was expected in east Tennessee on
Tuesday night and into early Wednesday
morning, with damaging straight-line
Pan Am. She then attended San Francisco State
University.
She married Frank
DEmilio in 1958. Their
family
moved
to

they were members of
Immaculate Heart of
Mary Catholic Church.

winds of up to 60 mph and lightning possible.
Gatlinburg Fire Chief Greg Miller said
officials were still conducting search-andrescue missions.
We have not been able to get in all of the
areas, Miller said. We pray that we dont
experience any more fatalities, but there
are still areas that we are trying to get to
because of downed trees and power lines.
Though wildfires have been burning for
several weeks across the drought-stricken
South, with rainfall 10 to 15 inches below
normal over the past three months in many
parts, Monday marked the first time any
homes and businesses were destroyed on a
large scale.
The fire that roared through Gatlinburg

actually began last week in the national


park, and fierce winds carried burning
embers into the city, park officials said.
That original fire is believed to have been
caused by people, national fire managers
said in a report. Whether it was intentionally set or an accident hasnt been
explained by authorities.
After the fire escaped the park, flames
spread further when winds blew trees onto
power lines, sparking new fires and shooting embers over long distances. Hundreds
of homes and other buildings, including a
16-story hotel, were damaged or destroyed.
Emergency officials ordered evacuations
in downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge
and in other areas of Sevier County near the
Great Smoky Mountains.

GOP prepares for House vote on medical research bill


By Alan Fram
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Republicans and


Democrats put finishing touches Tuesday
on a $6.3 billion medical research bill as
GOP leaders prepared to try pushing the
measure through the lame-duck Congress by
next week.
While Democrats and consumer groups
were unhappy with parts of the legislation,
it contained enough accomplishments for
both sides that passage seemed likely.
Government drug approvals would be accelerated, there would be more money for biomedical research including on cancer, a
priority for the White House and Vice
President Joe Biden and there would be
added funds for battling abuse of addictive
drugs like opioids, a growing problem that
plagues red and blue states alike.

Its a very important and attractive


piece of legislation. I anticipate a big vote.
Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.

Its a very important and attractive piece


of legislation. I anticipate a big vote, said
Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., who chairs
the Senate Health committee.
The House was planning to consider the
996-page package Wednesday, with Senate
action expected next week.
In eleventh-hour talks, both sides said
they had agreed to remove language that
would have exempted companies from publicly reporting education-related gifts to
doctors, such as textbooks. Firms must
report many payments they give physicians, which critics say encourage doctors
to prescribe products made by those companies.

Democrats had wanted stronger language


to assure that the money the legislation
makes available would actually be provided
by future Congresses. They were also
unhappy with provisions making it easier
to get government approval to prescribe
existing drugs for new uses, and with the
measures cuts in President Barack Obamas
health care law and other programs, which
would take effect immediately.
But with Donald Trump replacing a more
supportive Obama in the White House in
just two months, Democratic leverage to
demand changes was limited.
In remarks Tuesday to the Senate,
Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said

there is some angst among Democrats


about the bill and said he was expecting it
to be changed, but was not specific.
White House spokeswoman Katie Hill
voiced support for added research and drug
abuse spending but said officials are reviewing the legislation while conversations
continue in Congress.
The bill was drawing populist attacks
from two of the Senates most liberal members, Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. , and
Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.
Sanders said Congress must stand up to
the worlds biggest pharmaceutical companies, not give them more handouts. In a
fierce Senate speech Monday, Warren called
the bill corrupt and very, very dangerous.
The bill would let the Food and Drug
Administration approve drugs and medical
devices more quickly which consumer
groups say is dangerous.

Official: Ohio attacker was angry about treatment of Muslims


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

COLUMBUS, Ohio The Somali-born


student who went on a car-and-knife rampage
at Ohio State University railed on Facebook
against U.S. interference in Muslim lands
and warned, If you want us Muslims to stop
carrying lone wolf attacks, then make peace
with the Islamic State group, a law enforcement official said Tuesday.
The posts from Abdul Razak Ali Artans
account came to light after Mondays violence, which left 11 people injured.
Investigators are looking into whether it

was a terrorist attack.


America! Stop interfering with other
countries, especially the Muslim Ummah.
We are not weak. We are not weak, remember
that, he wrote, using the Arabic term for the
worlds Muslim community.
The posts were recounted by a law enforcement official who was briefed on the investigation but wasnt authorized to discuss it
publicly and spoke to the Associated Press
on condition of anonymity.
Every single Muslim who disapproves
of my actions is a sleeper cell, waiting for
a signal. I am warning you Oh America!

Artan also wrote.


Dozens of FBI agents began searching
Artans apartment for clues to what set off the
rampage.
Artan drove a car up onto a sidewalk and
plowed into a group of pedestrians shortly
before 10 a.m. He then got out and began
stabbing people with a butcher knife before
he was shot to death by a campus police officer.
Most of the victims were hurt by the car,
and two had been stabbed, officials said. One
had a fractured skull. Three remained hospitalized Tuesday.

Engineering professor William Clark, who


underwent surgery for deep cuts on his leg,
recalled at a news conference Tuesday being
hit by the car from behind and being thrown
through the air.
When the car hit me, I really didnt know
what to think, he said, adding he next heard
screams from students. Thats when I figured
out it was more than a car accident.
On Tuesday, a self-described Islamic State
news agency called Artan a soldier of the
Islamic State who carried out the operation
in response to calls to target citizens of
international coalition countries.

Massive Chernobyl shelter


put over exploded reactor
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHERNOBYL, Ukraine Workers completed a massive shelter over the Chernobyl


nuclear plants exploded reactor on Tuesday,
one of the most ambitious engineering
projects in the world that one expert said
had closed a nuclear wound.
The half cylinder-shaped shelter was
locked in place over the plants reactor No.
4 after being moved in on hydraulic jacks
for two weeks. It marks a significant step
toward containing the consequences of the
worlds worst nuclear accident, which
occurred 30 years ago in what is now
Ukraine.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko
described the new shelter as the biggest
moving construction that humanity has
ever created.
Workers will now begin dismantling
unstable parts of the original cover, the socalled sarcophagus, which was built over
the reactor shortly after the disaster to contain radiation.
The April 26, 198,6 explosion at the reac-

Count shows Moise winning


Haiti vote; challengers protest
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti A political
newcomer backed by Haitis previous
elected leader easily won a presidential
election redo against 26 rivals, according
to preliminary results that were quickly
questioned Tuesday by several losing factions.
Haitis Provisional Electoral Council
said Jovenel Moise won 55.6 percent of
the votes in the Nov. 20 election, apparently avoiding a runoff. Turnout was just
21 percent.
Moise had been the leading vote-getter
in the first-round of presidential balloting

tor sent a cloud of radioactive fallout over


much of Europe and forced the evacuation of
about 115, 000 people from the plants
vicinity. A 30-kilometer (19-mile) area
around the plant has remained largely offlimits and the town of Pripyat, where the
plants workers once lived, was turned into a
ghostly ruin of deteriorating apartment
buildings.
The new shelter is 275 meters (843 feet)
wide and 108 meters (354 feet) tall and cost
about 1.5 billion euros, according to the
European Bank for Reconstruction and
Development.
More than 40 governments have contributed to funding its construction, which
involved 10,000 workers.
EBRD President Suma Chakrabarti hailed
the shelter as a testament to the lasting
international solidarity with Ukraine and
the commitment to nuclear safety.
Hans Blix, chairman of the Chernobyl
Shelter Fund, said thirty years after the
accident, pains and costs are still there but
the healing process has come a long way.

Around the world


last year, but the official results were
annulled after a Haitian commission called
for the election to start over from scratch
amid widespread fraud allegations.
This time, Moise, an agricultural entrepreneur and candidate of former President
Michel Martellys Tet Kale party, led his
nearest competitor by over 35 percentage
points.
Moise was surrounded by jubilant, cheering supporters at a Petionville hotel after
results were announced late Monday. With
his wife, Martine, at his side, he thanked
Haitis citizens and all his political competitors in the deeply polarized country.

People wave Cuban flags as they attend a tribute to Cubas late President Fidel Castro.

Second day of homage to Fidel


Castro ends with massive rally
By Fabiola Sanchez and Juan Zamora
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HAVANA Schools and government


offices were closed Tuesday for a second day of
homage to Fidel Castro, with the day ending
in a rally on the wide plaza where the Cuban
leader delivered fiery speeches to mammoth
crowds in the years after he seized power.
Hundreds of thousands of Cubans have been
bidding farewell to Castro, pledging allegiance to his socialist ideology and paying
tribute before images of the leader as a young
guerrilla gazing out over the country he would
come to rule for nearly a half century.
On Tuesday they were joined by two of
Castros firmest ideological allies, presidents
Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela and Evo Morales
of Bolivia, who spent several moments paying their respects before a picture of Castro as
a young, bearded rebel.
Cuba is going through a moment of profound shock, Morales said when he arrived
the previous evening. I came to be present
during a moment of pain from the loss of my
brother, my friend.
Cuban state media reported that an urn containing Castros ashes was being kept in a
room at the Defense Ministry where his
younger brother and successor, Raul Castro,
and top Communist Party officials paid tribute the previous evening.
Lines stretched for hours outside Havanas
Plaza of the Revolution, the heart of govern-

ment power. In Havana


and across the island, people signed condolence
books and an oath of loyalty to Castros sweeping
May 2000 proclamation
of the Cuban revolution as
an unending battle for
socialism, nationalism
Fidel Castro and an outsize role for the
island on the world stage.
Tribute sites were set up in hundreds of
places across the island as the government
urged Cubans to reaffirm their belief in a
socialist, single-party system that in recent
years has struggled to maintain the fervor that
was widespread at the triumph of the 1959
revolution.
Many mourners came on their own accord,
but thousands were sent in groups by the communist government, which still employs
about 80 percent of the working people in
Cuba despite the growth of the private sector
under Raul.
Inside the memorial, thousands walked
through three rooms with near-identical displays featuring the 1962 Alberto Korda photograph of the young Castro in the Sierra
Maestra mountains, bouquets of white flowers
and an array of Castros medals against a
black backdrop, framed by honor guards of
soldiers and children in school uniforms. The
ashes of the 90-year-old former president did
not appear to be on display.

North Central quality of life
Editor,
I have lived in North Central San
Mateo since 1963. I have seen family
and friends move from the Bay Area
because the cost of living was not
affordable for them. Most of them
were born here and moved from a
community that was their home for
many years.
I have family that moved to
Manteca and commuted to the Bay
Area every day on a busfor work. A
mother of two that had to move from
family and friends to support them.
You work and live in a city that is
affordable for you and your
family.The Bay Area is one of the
most expensive areas to live in
California.
This city is building townhouses
for over a million dollarsin North
Central and are not really serious
about building affordable
housing.Now they want to pass mandate junior accessory dwelling units
and accessory dwelling unitshoping
this will helpthe housing
problem.North Central has a population of 18,457 people living in this
community and it has already lost
aQuality of Life for everyone.
Lets hope our city can get serious
about affordable housing and help
these families without overpopulating already dense areas.

Electoral doughnut holes


Editor,
When I was a San Francisco
Chronicle delivery boy during World
War II, I would stop at the end of my
paper route and patronize a neighborhood doughnut shop that had a wisdom sign on their wall which read,
As you travel through life, brother,
whatever may be your goal, keep your
eye upon the donut and not the hole.
The recent election indicates that
the Democrats fell into the Electoral
College hole. Forget about the
doughnut.

papers was widely acclaimed as journalisms preeminently recognized


standard bearer. But in the clash
between Trump and Clinton, the paper
surrendered all pretentiousness of
journalistic truthfulness and impartiality as it went to extremes to not
simply present the Democrats position in the most admiring light, but
to actually become Clintons clarion
mouthpiece.
Near the beginning, the paper
unmistakably had a incongruent tone
laced with imbalanced coverage that
fancied Clinton over her primary
rival Bernie Sanders, never mind that
he was drawing far larger throngs
than Clinton. But among our elite
intelligentsia, Clinton had long been
the odds-on darling not only to triumph in the primaries, but to loom
over the general election like
Godzilla, regardless of who the
Republican nominee turned out to be.

Orchids and onions


Editor,
Orchids to Tim Hilborns Guest
perspective piece on Nov. 28 that
encouraged everyone disappointed
with the Nov. 8 election results to try
to understand the other side. Tim, as
a self-proclaimed liberal, sees the
need for our country to come together. He is correct. It would also be
correct to encourage everyone pleased
with the election results to try to
understand the other side. It works
both ways.
Onions to Sue Lemperts column
titled, The end of the world? Her
comments ooze condescension in a
mix of personal feelings and unconnected facts aimed squarely at anyone
who disagrees with her liberal political point of view. I was a card-carrying, bag-totin Democrat for over 30
years, and its just this sort of negativism that convinced me to join the
burgeoning ranks of citizens who
select No Party Preference (NPP formerly known as decline-to-state)
when they register to vote. Now, I
vote for a candidate, not a political
party.
Orchids to Tim for acknowledging
the legitimacy of differing points of
view; onions to Sue for lambasting
the RNC and its candidate while completely ignoring the shenanigans of
the DNC and its candidate.

Large-scale
construction in San Carlos
Editor,
In spite of signicant concerns
about resident safety and other concerns raised at the Nov. 21 San Carlos
Planning Commission meeting, the
commission unanimously approved
construction of a new mega home on
Elizabeth Street that is completely
out of scale with our neighborhood.
The huge project covers over
10,000 square feet, includes a 7,600square-foot home, a new detached
unit, new pool and deck and a new
huge detached garage. Several neighbors spoke against the project with
specic thoughtful concerns about
trafc hazards, tree preservation and
environmental concerns.
What did the commissioners do
about residents signicant concerns?
They ignored them and approved the
project just like they have approved
so many other large out-of-scale projects in San Carlos.
Unlike neighboring cities that carefully consider large projects impacts
on sustainability and residents, San
Carlos does not and is far behind.
Why? One response is to run for City
Council or commission and vote to
ensure San Carlos is responsive to
residents and more sustainable.

Millbrae BART housing proposal


Editor,
I am writing to express my support
for the mixed-use, mixed-income proposal at the Millbrae BART station.
As someone who grew up in Millbrae,
and continues to live in the Bay Area,
this would be an awesome addition to
the town I came from and the Bay
Area.
I have lots of friends who arent
from here, and a building like this is a
perfect place for them (or me) to live.
It could not be any closer to BART
and Caltrain, eliminating the need for
us to use cars.
It also has 55 subsidized units set
aside for local veterans who badly
need places to stay, adds a whopping
$400 million to the tax base of
Millbrae and an additional $1 million
straight to the schools.
This is a great, future thinking,
environmentally friendly proposal
that will add to the quality of life in
Millbrae for generations to come.

Surviving
the season
G

ratitude is one of the strengths of character


most robustly associated with life satisfaction. Christopher Peterson, Pursuing
the Good Life.
Now that Thanksgiving is past and tomorrow is Dec. 1,
have you made your Christmas gift list yet? Does the
thought of another holiday season leave you feeling overwhelmed? Maybe with all of the depressing political,
national and local events that we read about and see on TV
you dont even feel in the mood for holiday festivities.
Besides that, what are you going to get all of those on the
gift list who have everything already? Unfortunately, for
many of us, it seems to be
as Al Gore once described
it: The accumulation of
material goods is at an all
time high, but so is the
number of people who feel
an emptiness in their
lives.
Maybe you look forward
to all of the festivities and
gatherings to restore your
faith that there are some
things that stay the same.
Whatever our orientation
to the holidays, there are
some ways we can improve
them greatly and maybe
even relieve some of the angst. First, though there is
much going wrong in our world, nation and community
that causes us to feel cynical, we can alleviate some of
this by regularly counting our blessings and feeling and
expressing gratitude for them. We can feel grateful for
something as important as family and friends or as small
as that beautiful rose in the garden. Mindfully appreciating such blessings regularly helps us become more optimistic, more content with what we have and happier in
general because we are emphasizing what we have instead
of what we dont have.
Some families, when they sit down on holidays to eat
together, ask each person to name something for which
they are grateful that has nothing to do with possessions.
This is especially good for children who are constantly
bombarded with messages from our culture that what we
have is what we are and that wealth is success. We all need
to be reminded regularly that truly successful people are
those with peace of mind because they are honest, decent,
responsible, kind and basically content with what they
have. As David C. Meyers wrote in The American
Paradox: Happiness is less a matter of getting what we
want and more a matter of wanting what we have.
Simplify. We can toss out or cut down on that gift list
and donate the money we would have spent otherwise to
deserving and reliable charities like Second Harvest Food
Bank, Salvation Army, St. Anthonys Dining Room,
Samaritan House or another good cause that helps those
who are unfortunate to relieve some of the anxiety of living in todays world. This will require some explanation
to those on the list, but, with any luck, it will encourage
them to do the same. When it comes to the children on my
list, I nd it very difcult to come up with gifts for children who already have everything. Though they may not
appreciate the contribution to their college fund now,
hopefully, theyll appreciate it later.
Many of us could live a very good life with half of the
stuff we have. In a country that has 6 percent of the
worlds population and yet uses 25 percent of the worlds
resources, we need to seriously consider the downside of
our materialism much of which has occurred because:
Our assumption that we can buy the feeling of success
has made us into the consummate consumers. Paul
Pearsall, Toxic Success. Along with this goes the lowering of expectations. We can give up any delusions of holiday perfection we may entertain. If dinner doesnt come
out perfectly, so what? If the tree isnt outstanding, let it
be. We can spend the time and energy saved enjoying the
family and others to whom we feel close.
It may help to slow down and enjoy healthy pleasures.
Some suggestions: Take a walk in a beautiful area a
lovely garden or park, for instance. Play with a small
child or a pet. Read a really interesting book. Attend a
performance of beautiful holiday music. If we make it a
priority to get into a more generous, less materialistic
spirit of the holidays, we may begin the new year in a better state of mind than we expect. Its often a matter of the
choices we make. As Paul Roberts wrote in The Impulse
Society: In a society driven by a hunt for yield and the
churn of the treadmill and the incessant search for the perfect, personalized satisfactions, were rarely invited to
even consider a reality beyond the short-term and selfregarding.

Stocks close higher, helped by health care companies


By Ken Sweet

DOW JONES INDUSTRIALS

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Stocks closed


slightly higher on Tuesday,
boosted by health-care companies
like UnitedHealth Group, which
helped outweigh steep declines in
energy companies.
Tiffany jumped after it reported
better quarterly results than analysts expected.
The Dow Jones industrial average rose 23.70 points, or 0.1 percent, to 19,121.60. The Standard
& Poors 500 index rose 2.94
points, or 0. 1 percent, to
2,204.66 and the Nasdaq composite rose 11.11 points, or 0.2 percent, to 5,379.92.
Stocks started the day slightly
lower but posted slight gains by
late-morning and stayed higher
throughout the afternoon.
Health care stocks were a primary driver of the markets upward
turn. UnitedHealth, the largest
U. S. health insurer, backed its
forecast for this year and said it
expects its earnings to grow in
2017. Thats because of stable
medical costs, less exposure to
Affordable Care Act health care
exchanges, and growth for Optum,
a business that manages pharmacy

In energy, oil prices fell sharply
after it seemed like a deal to reduce

1.2 percent on Tuesday.
Luxury jeweler Tiffany traded
higher after the company reported
stronger sales in Asia, which
countered weaker results from the
U.S. and Europe. Its stock gained
$2.46, or 3.1 percent, to $80.60.

U.S. economy grew at 3.2 percent in third quarter


By Martin Crutsinger
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The U.S. economy in the third quarter grew at the


fastest pace in two years, with a
revised report showing stronger
consumer spending than first estimated.
The gross domestic product, the
countrys total output of goods
and services, expanded at an
annual rate of 3.2 percent in the
July-September period,
the
Commerce Department reported
Tuesday. That is up from a previ-

ous estimate of 2.9 percent.


The revision was significantly
better than the meager gains of 0.8
percent in the first quarter and 1.4
percent in the second quarter when
the economy was being held back
by a strong dollar and weak business investment.
The 3.2 percent increase was
expected to be the best showing for
the year. Economists believe
growth has slowed to around 2 percent in the current quarter. At the
moment, they forecast growth of
around 2 percent to 2.5 percent for
2017.

But analysts caution that the outlook for next year could shift significantly based on policy changes
such as tax cuts and higher trade
tariffs that President-elect
Donald Trump has promised to
implement.
Uncertainty regarding our forecasts is higher than usual given
expected fiscal and trade policy
changes under the new administration, said Barclays economist
Blerina Uruci.
The latest look at GDP, the second of three estimates from the
government, showed that con-

sumer spending grew at a 2.8 percent rate in the third quarter, better
than the 2.1 percent advance first
estimated. The new-found strength
reflected more spending than initially thought in such areas as auto
purchases and utility bills. Still,
consumer
spending,
which
accounts for 70 percent of economic activity, slowed from a gain of
4.3 percent in the second quarter.
Other areas of strength were in
export sales, which grew at a 10.1
percent rate. Although the figure
partially reflected a temporary
surge in exports of soybeans,

economists are hopeful that


exports will show further gains in
the months ahead. Earlier in the
year, American manufacturers were
battered by a strong dollar which
made their goods more expensive
on overseas markets.
The 3.2 percent GDP gain, the
best showing since a 5 percent
advance in the third quarter of
2014, is not expected to last.
Analysts believe growth will slow
to a still-solid 2 percent rate in the
current quarter as a temporary boost
from business restocking of store
shelves fades.

Business briefs
Saudi-Iran rivalries could
scuttle tentative OPEC deal
VIENNA Up to this week, chances that OPEC countries
would agree to their first cut in output in eight years were
looking good. Now, not so much.
Saud Arabia is questioning an informal agreement made in
September to trim production. And the desert kingdom,
which accounts for about a third of OPECs output, normally prevails at ministerial meetings.
Whether OPEC decides to cut or not at their meeting
Wednesday will influence energy prices around the world as
the cartel remains the dominant force in oil markets. The
price of crude fell about 4 percent Tuesday as it appeared
uncertain that a cut might be agreed upon.
Still, a deal is not out of the question, and even a remote
possibility that it will be backed is an exciting prospect.
Spencer Welch, an analyst with IHS energy, casts the event
as potentially the most important OPEC meeting since
1973, when the cartel imposed a highly effective oil
embargo on the West.

Lady Warriors setting their sights sky high


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Nothing announces the outset of girls


basketball season quite like the tackling and
tumbling antics of South Citys burgeoning
superstar Brittney Cedeno.
Entering her senior year, Cedeno is looking to lead the Warriors to a special season.
The team is coming off a fairly historic season already, having advanced to the Central
Coast Section Division III championship
game for the first time in program history
and earning a spot in the CIF Northern
California tournament.

Losing just one senior


to graduation this year,
and a non-starter at that
and adding depth to the
roster after entering last
years postseason with
just seven active players
South City figures it is
destined for big things in
2016-17.
Brittney
Based on what we did
Cedeno
last season, I think we
can return to CCS,
Cedeno said. I definitely want to return to
CCS and go further than we did in [NorCals].

Those lofty expectations, however, hinge


on the health of Cedeno. Her reputation for
being able to take over a game precedes her.
At several points during Tuesdays home
opener a 62-41 win over Lowell-SF
fans in the stands were constantly shouting
for her to take the ball to the hoop.
For Cedeno, though, taking the ball to the
hoop has become a mild source of controversy for a couple reasons.
For starters, Cedeno is so focused on
involving her teammates in the fast-moving
Warriors offense, she is currently more intent
on passing the ball than any other element
of her game.

Shes an unselfish player, so shes always


looking to pass and make plays for others,
South City junior center Jerlene Miller said.
This isnt always to the liking of Warriors
head coach Paul Carion, however, who constantly chides her in practice for being too
selfless.
Shes our best player, Carion said. You
want your best player to shoot the ball.
Then there is the fallout from her ultraaggressive style of play when she does drive
the hoop. Whether Cedeno dials in the
shooting game or not, she only ever plays at

Gryphons escape with win Burns delivers


Crystal Springs gets pair of goals from Duncanson, holds off Cap
By Nathan Mollat
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The Achilles heel of the Crystal Springs


girls soccer team the last few years has been
at goalkeeper, as coach Michael Flynn has
scrambled to find someone with experience
to work between the posts.
This season, Flynns prayers may have
been answered with freshman Elaine Chen,
who was thrown into the fire in her first
high school game against visiting
Capuchino.
Chen definitely earned her keep. Playing
against a vastly improved Mustangs squad,
Chen and the Crystal Springs defense weathered a relentless Capuchino attack. The
Mustangs got off 19 shots during the game
15 of which were on frame with Chen
saving 14 of them.
Having a [legitimate] goalkeeper makes
a big difference, Flynn said.
After stopping several shots from distance, Chen proved unflappable as the
Mustangs got up into her face several times
in the second half. Down 2-0 at halftime,
the Mustangs score cut their deficit in half
three minutes into the second half, but could
not solve Chen over the final 37 minutes of
the game.
We were getting good looks, said
Capuchino coach Rich Medina. I personally thought we had the majority of possession the first 20 minutes of each half.
Brianna Ledesma and Fernanda Castro did
a good job of controlling the middle for the
Mustangs. Castro played a physical game to
win challenges and distribute the ball, while
Ledesma brought a more technical approach
to the game, using some fancy footwork to
create space and make penetrating passes.
Isabel Hernandez, Lauren Meyer and Marli
Bonney wreaked havoc on the wings for the
Mustangs, while Amaya Tomlinson was a
force at the sweeper spot. Medina said
Tomlinson skipped the high school season
to focus on her club team last season.

Crystal Springs freshman goalkeeper Elaine Chen, right, smothers a shot attempt by
Capuchinos Lauren Meyer during the Gryphons 2-1 win over the Mustangs in the season
opener for both teams.

SAN JOSE All it took was an overtime


power play for the San Jose Sharks to
change a frustrating pattern this season
against the Arizona Coyotes.
Brent Burns scored a power-play goal 19
seconds into overtime and the Sharks
avenged a pair of onegoal losses to the
Coyotes earlier this
month with a 2-1 victory
on Tuesday night.
After losing twice in
Arizona despite a decided
advantage in shots, San
Jose came out on top this
Brent Burns time.
I thought we deserved
the win, coach Peter DeBoer said. We
worked hard enough for the win. We stuck
with it. I liked our composure tonight. It
would have been easy at different points to
get frustrated or get impatient. Thats what
they wait for. But we didnt. It took us more
than 60 minutes but we found a way.
Chris Tierney also scored and Martin
Jones made 18 saves. San Jose won four of
five games on the homestand and improved
to 8-3 overall at the Shark Tank this season.
Max Domi scored the lone goal for the
Coyotes, who lost their fifth straight in San
Jose. Mike Smith made 40 saves but had no
chance on Burns one-timer in overtime.
Martin Hanzal was called for high-sticking Melker Karlsson with 0.3 seconds left
in regulation and the Sharks did not take
long to capitalize in the extra period.
San Jose set up quickly in the offensive
zone after Logan Couture carried the puck in.
Joe Pavelski then fed Burns at the top of the
faceoff circle for the big shot that beat
Smith for his ninth goal of the season.

Brazilian soccer teams plane crashes, 71 dead

LA UNION, Colombia Colombian


authorities searched for answers Tuesday
into the crash of a chartered airliner that
slammed into the Andes mountains while
transporting a Brazilian soccer team whose
Cinderella story had won it a spot in the
finals of one of South Americas most prestigious regional tournaments. All but six of
the 77 people on board were killed.
The British Aerospace 146 short-haul

plane declared an emergency and lost radar


contact just before 10 p.m. Monday (0300
GMT Tuesday), according to Colombias
aviation agency. It said the planes black
boxes had been recovered and were being
analyzed.
The aircraft, which departed from Santa
Cruz,
Bolivia,
was carrying the
Chapecoense soccer team from southern
Brazil for Wednesdays first leg of the twogame Copa Sudamericana final against
Atletico Nacional of Medellin. Twenty-one

Brazilian journalists were also on board the


flight.
Colombian officials initially said the
plane suffered an electrical failure but there
was also heavy rainfall at the time of the
crash. Authorities also said they were not
ruling out the possibility, relayed to rescuers by a surviving flight attendant, that
the plane ran out of fuel minutes before its
scheduled landing at Jose Maria Cordova
airport outside Medellin.
Whatever the cause, the emotional pain of

Colombias deadliest air tragedy in two


decades was felt across the soccer world.

49ers Kaepernick showing improvement


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ORLANDO, Fla. San Francisco 49ers


tight end Vance McDonald remembers quarterback Colin Kaepernick leading the team to the
NFC championship game in 2013 with his
ability to make plays all over the field.
McDonald feels as if Kaepernick is starting
to regain that form and the confidence that
comes with playing every week after being
selected as the starter in Week 6 against the
Buffalo Bills.
(He is) just having a lot more patience in
the pocket and having a lot more cleaner
reads, McDonald said. He got warmed up and
you look at him the last three weeks, the guy is
putting up great numbers.
In his first two weeks as the starter,
Kaepernick completed 46 percent of his pass-

es for 330 yards, two


touchdowns and an interception.
But in the past four
weeks, Kaepernick has
completed more than 58
percent and thrown for
1,110 yards with eight
touchdowns and two interceptions.
Colin
Offensive coordinator
Kaepernick
Curtis Modkins said it was
natural to expect an improvement in
Kaepernicks game from his first start in
Buffalo as he has started to get healthy and get
through the rust of not playing football for
much of the past year.
He had some injuries that he was dealing
with, Modkins said. He missed the offsea-

son. It was his first game back. I think whats


important though is that hes steadily
improved from that point on and I dont see
why that wont continue the way he works.
Although the 49ers are on a 10-game losing
streak, the recent play of Kaepernick has teammates and coaches excited. And as Kaepernick
continues to work toward developing better
chemistry with his teammates in hopes that
his improvement will soon turn into wins.
Well, I think its showing more and more
every week, Kaepernick said. The more I get
comfortable, the more receivers and offensive
line get comfortable with whats going on, I
think we put up more and more yards, give ourselves more and more opportunities to score.
Now, we just have to convert those opportunities into points.
Kaepernick is also finding success on the

ground. He rushed for 113 yards in the 31-24


loss to the Miami Dolphins last Sunday and
has 373 yards on 46 carries this season, averaging more than 8 yards per rush.
I think part of it is this offense lends itself
to that, Kaepernick said. Theres more opportunities for (runs), especially being in threereceiver sets most of the time, a lot more space
out there. So, scramble lanes are bigger. When
we do run zone-read theres more space there as
well.
NOTES: Linebacker Shayne Skov (knee)
has been placed on injured reserve. Skov
appeared in nine games this season and had
two tackles on defense and eight on special
teams. Safety Marcus Ball was promoted from
the practice squad to the active roster and the
team signed linebacker Wynton McManis to
the practice squad.

Tiger is back, but for how long?


By Doug Ferguson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NASSAU, Bahamas Returning to golf was always


going to be an easier decision for Tiger Woods than knowing when to leave.
One week in the Bahamas is not going to determine that.
Woods turns 41 at the end of next month, and for the first
time since he started this holiday tournament, he is the oldest player in the field. Age is not the issue, though. It never
is in golf. One of the greatest aspects of this sport is that it
can be played a few years short of forever.
At the elite level, however, thats also
its greatest burden.
Golf rarely offers a graceful exit.
While it didnt cross his mind Monday
when Woods played nine holes with
Derek Jeter in a breezy atmosphere punctuated by the occasional needle, it was a
reminder of how difficult it will be for
Woods to leave at the right time, on his
Tiger Woods own terms.
Jeter knew when it was time to go, and
his departure was right out of a movie script. He hit a gamewinning single in the bottom of the ninth in his final game
at Yankee Stadium, and then he hit another RBI single in the
final at-bat of his career and received a standing ovation at
Fenway Park.
Ted Williams hit a home run in his final at-bat. Peyton
Manning walked off the field for the last time as a Super
Bowl champion. Kobe Bryant scored 60 points in his last
game with the Los Angeles Lakers.
What would be a comparable ending for Woods, or any
golfer?
I dont know, Woods said with emphasis on the final
word. He paused for a brief moment before adding, You
cant.
Arnold Palmer had the tearful farewell from the U.S. Open
at Oakmont in 1994, the grand crossing of the Swilcan
Bridge at St. Andrews a year later, an entire week devoted to
his departure at the Masters in 2004. His final time playing
Bay Hill, he hit driver off the deck to the front of the 18th
green and made par.
But the King quit keeping score well before that. At the
2001 Pennsylvania Classic at Laurel Valley, the standard
bearer removed his score from the sign and Palmer did not
turn in a card (he would have shot 90).
Gary Player played the Masters for the 52nd time at age
74.

You would think that win a major and youre done,


Woods said of the ideal exit from golf. But if you win a
major, youre going to want to come back and play.
Jack Nicklaus never won again after the 1986 Masters he
won at age 46. He never missed a major as a pro until the
1998 British Open. Nicklaus played the Masters for the last
time in 2005 without telling anyone he finished on the
front nine because of rain delays.
Still, he managed a memorable retirement that summer
when he played a major for the last time at St. Andrews.
While he missed the cut, Nicklaus birdied the final hole,
raised his left arm in that pose made famous at the 86
Masters and said, I knew that hole would move wherever I
hit it.
Woods isnt ready to think about retirement or he would
have left when he had the chance.
If you love the game, you can keep coming back, Ernie
Els said when assessing Woods return to golf. Otherwise,
we can walk away. I have enough of everything. I can go do
other stuff. But I still feel I can play decent golf, and I love
it. If he has the desire and I think he does have the desire,
otherwise I think he could have really walked away this time
then you keep grinding and forget about how good you
were. Its where you are now.
Woods waited 15 months to heal. He has said his health is
no longer an issue, and the final measure will be this week
at the Hero World Challenge. His body has aged and his
swing has changed. The golf landscape has become even
more crowded with younger, disciplined players who grew
up in awe of him. They work just as hard, hit the ball farther
and make putts that Woods once did.
Can he win again? Maybe not this week, but it would be
foolish to count him out, majors included. All it takes is one
week when everything goes right. That doesnt apply only
to Woods; that has been proven with plenty of players over
the years.
Our sport, you see guys like Jim Furyk just shooting 58,
hitting it as far as he does. You can play different ways and
still win golf tournaments, Woods said. You cant do that
in baseball, football, basketball, tennis. You have your
window. And once you miss that window, youre done.
Youre starting to see the end of Fed (Roger Federer), and its
sad. We can see hes not quite the same. Same with Jetes
(Jeter) after he broke his ankle.
In golf, you can still have one or two great weeks a year
and still win golf tournaments. And if you win two golf tournaments, youve basically had a great year.
Its enough to keep him going. For how long, not even he
knows.

Baseball briefs
Bostons Porcello, Washingtons
Rendon win comeback awards
NEW YORK Boston Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello has
won the AL Comeback Player of the Year award, while
Washington Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon
received the NL honor.
Porcello also won the Cy Young Award in his second season
with the Red Sox, helping Boston to its second AL East title in
four seasons. The right-hander went 22-4 with a 3.15 ERA over
33 starts. Porcello bounced back after going 9-15 with a 4.92
ERA in 2015. His 22 victories led the majors.
Rendon hit .270 with 20 home runs and 85 RBIs in 156
games in his fourth season. He had a .348 on-base percentage
and a .450 slugging percentage to help the Nationals win the
NL East for the second time in three seasons. Rendon was limited to 80 games in 2015 because of injuries.
Major League Baseball announced the winners Tuesday. The
awards are voted on by the 30 team beat writers from
MLB.com.

Cespedes, Mets agree to $110M, 4-year contract


NEW YORK Yoenis Cespedes is staying with the New
York Mets again.
After testing free agency for the second straight offseason,
the slugging outfielder agreed to a $110 million, four-year contract with New York, a person familiar with the deal told The
Associated Press on Tuesday.
The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity
because the agreement is subject to Cespedes successfully completing a physical.
A two-time All-Star, Cespedes gets $22.5 million in 2017,
$29 million in each of the following two seasons and $29.5
million in 2020.
The 31-year-old receives a full no-trade provision as part of
the agreement, the largest for a free agent thus far this offseason. The deals $27.5 million average annual value ties former
Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez for the second-highest
among position players, trailing only Miguel Cabreras $29.2
million with Detroit.
Cespedes had 31 homers and 86 RBIs in 132 games this year,
slowed after injuring his right quadriceps on July 8.

Ex-NFL star gets 20 years in drugging rapes


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES Former NFL star Darren


Sharper was sentenced Tuesday to a 20-year
prison term, ending a tour of shame and punishment in the courthouse where he first
admitted drugging and raping women in four
states.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael
Pastor denounced Sharpers horrible conduct and disgraceful abuse of trust during
the hearing that concluded prosecutions that
unmasked the popular former all-pro safety
and Super Bowl champ as a serial rapist.
Under the terms of a plea deal negotiated
with prosecutors in four states, Sharper will be
eligible for parole in about eight years
because California law requires he serve half
his sentence and he has already been behind
bars more than two years since his arrest.
But he will probably serve more time if an
appeals court upholds an 18-year prison sentence handed down by a New Orleans federal
judge who rejected the deal as too lenient.
Sharper has appealed that harsher sentence.
Sharper, 41, sat quietly in court in orange
jail scrubs and never addressed the court or two

longer escape after he


secretly slipped drugs in
their shot glasses and
insisted they drink.
Both women blacked
out and later awoke to the
groggy reality that something terribly wrong had
occurred that they couldnt
Darren Sharper immediately comprehend
in their drug-induced stupor.
I started vomiting, my head was pounding
and I had trouble seeing clearly, said one victim, who said her rape on Jan. 15, 2014 was
the worst night of my life.
The woman, identified only as Jane Doe 2,
teared up before she even addressed the court
and dabbed at her nose with a tissue throughout. She said her surfing career spiraled downward afterward, she lost her self-confidence,
lives in fear and at one point considered suicide.
The only good thing about this situation is
that this disgusting low-life human will be
sent to prison for many years and is likely he
will never be able to do to this to another
woman again, she said. I hope this scumbag
will now feel as worthless as he has made me
feel.

Sharper, 41, was working as an NFL network analyst when women in several cities
began reporting how nights of partying with
their girlfriends and Sharper ended with them
waking up in his hotel room confused and discovering they had been sexually assaulted.
Sharpers arrest came as the NFL was dealing
with off-field problems with players accused
of crimes ranging from spousal abuse to murder.
The second woman, identified as Jane Doe
4, was with a friend when they were drugged by
Sharper in his hotel room in 2013, hours after
they met at a Sports Illustrated 50th anniversary party.
She woke up on a bed with her clothes on,
blood coming out of her nose and did now
know where she was. She said her friend had
been sexually assaulted, and both fled fearing
for their lives.
Its one thing to be a victim, but to be the
victim that got lucky in some eyes is not
easy to live with, Jane Doe 4 said. When I
think back to that night I wonder what he
could have done to me. Thats not lucky. Its
haunting.
The Associated Press does not generally
name people who are victims of sex crimes.
Sharper retired from the league in 2011 after
a 14-year career with the Green Bay Packers,

the Minnesota Vikings and, finally, in New


Orleans with the Saints, where he won a Super
Bowl.
Lawyers for Sharper had vigorously disputed the charges before he abruptly gave up his
defense in March 2015 on the eve of a preliminary hearing to decide if the Los Angeles case
would go to trial.
From the Los Angeles courtroom, Sharper
appeared by video-conferencing and pleaded
guilty to sexually assaulting one woman and
trying to attack another in suburban Phoenix
in 2013.
An hour later, he pleaded no contest to drugging and raping two women he picked up at a
West Hollywood bar on two occasions in late
2013 and early 2014.
The next day, he pleaded guilty via video to
a reduced felony attempted sex assault charge
for a Las Vegas case.
He later pleaded guilty in Louisiana to federal charges of drugging women so he could rape
them and state charges to three counts of rape.
At Sharpers sentencing in Louisiana federal court, he told the judge he wanted to apologize a thousand times.
On Tuesday in the Los Angeles courtroom,
Sharper had nothing to say besides providing
simple, short answers to routine legal sentencing questions posed by the judge.

domestic violence case against him. The


alleged incident happened in September at a bar
in the popular Sixth Street entertainment district in downtown Austin.
The plaintiff, Eric Newton, said Manziel was
attending a private party when Newton turned
down Manziels request to prepare some drinks.
Newton said he was later discussing his opinion
of Manziel with another customer and that
somebody in Manziels group told the former
Cleveland Browns quarterback about the conversation.
Newton claims that Manziel came downstairs, ran behind the bar, cursed at Mr. Newton,
and punched him in the face, breaking Mr.

Newtons nose.
Austin police wouldnt release details of an

A spokeswoman for Manziel said his representatives were aware of the lawsuit but didnt

Sportsmanship also prevailed,

much possession throughout the game and
Flynns lineup took a hit when starting center
fullback Maddie Schin came out midway
through the first half with cramps in her calf,
which forced Flynn to juggle his lineup. He
moved attacking midfielder EV Nora to the
back line and her versatility proved vital as
she closed down a number of Capuchino
attacks.
You could tell it was our first game, Flynn
said. [Nora] stepped up huge. Shes such a
selfless player.
Also missing for the Gryphons was center
midfielder Nikki Lee, who is also in the
national pool for her age group. Lee was lost
for the season with a knee injury.
The lack of cohesion in the midfield, coupled with a determined Capuchino squad made
things tough on Crystal, but the ace in the
hole for the Gryphons is senior striker Megan
Duncanson, who scored 26 goals last season.
She didnt wait long to get into the scoring
column in 2016-17, finding the back of the
net just 10 minutes into the season.
Duncanson chased down a long through ball
deep in the Mustangs end. Duncanson held off
a pair of defenders, made the turn toward goal
and, with the outside of her right foot, managed to spin a shot past the defenders efforts
and just inside the far right post for a 1-0 lead
in the 10th minute.
Duncanson was at it again in the 20th
minute when she corralled a loose ball in the
Capuchino penalty box, turned and fired a shot
into the upper left corner to give the
Gryphons a 2-0 lead.
That would be about all the offense Crystal
Springs would muster in the opening 40 minutes.
We had a couple organizational mistakes in
the back, Medina said.
Crystal Springs made the 2-0 lead stand
until halftime, but the Mustangs wasted little
time in getting back in the game. Pressing off
the second-half kickoff, the Mustangs were

working on the left flank when Hernandez
found Siena Martinucci stationed in the penalty box off of the near right post. Martinucci
then one-timed a pass to Castro, who was
located about 25 yards out from goal in the
middle of the field.
After taking a touch to control the ball,
Castro whipped her right foot through the ball
and hammered it into the upper right corner of
the net in the 43rd minute to cut the
Gryphons lead in half.
Thats when Capuchino goalkeeper Julia
Swedberg was forced into action and she kept
her team in the game with a pair of saves during one sequence about 15 minutes into the
second half.
Crystals Marlena Booker ran down a pass
and had a step on her defender when she let
loose a shot from about 18 yards out.
Swedberg got a hand on the shot to deflect it
away but the rebound landed right at the feet
of Molly Schoberl. But her shot was turned
aside by Swedberg as well to keep the
Mustangs deficit at just one goal.
Despite all efforts to find the equalizer, the
Crystal Springs defense was up to the task.
[Capuchino is] an A league team, Flynn
said of the Bay Division-playing Mustangs.
It shows.

one all-out tempo. And this tempo, combined


with her barreling to the hoop with, well,
reckless abandon may be putting it mildly,
proved costly in last seasons Nor Cal elimination loss to Tamalpais as Cedeno struck
her head on the court after attempting a layup
and crashing to the floor early in the second
half and departed with a concussion.
Not only was Cedeno unable to return to that
elimination loss without her, undermanned
South City fell by the slight margin of 58-57
she wasnt able to return to the court for
four months. And with this season just underway, she has already had another scare in
South Citys Nov. 21 sportsmanship exhibition game against Capuchino by crashing to
the court and getting accidentally kicked in
the head.
Yet in Tuesdays opener, Cedeno was again
tackling the ball and tumbling to the floor.
And so long as she can survive her senior season, it will sure be a fun one to watch.
Sometimes it makes me forget Im a coach
because I turn into a fan, Carion said.
Cedeno is far from the only talent in the
Warriors ranks though, and she was intent on
showcasing that talent against Lowell. Junior
forward Nevaeh Miller came off the bench to
score a game-high 16 points. Jerlene Miller
erupted in the third quarter to finish with 12
points, eight rebounds and seven steals.
Cedeno finished with 12 points, three steals
and three assists. However, South Citys erratic performance from the field over the final
three quarters saw her lose upwards on 10 possible assists on missed shots, many of which
were from close range. After the Warriors went
9 for 12 from the field in the first quarter, they
were a mere 14 for 48 thereafter, including an
about-face in the second quarter shooting 2 of
15.
Still, Carion was pleased with his teams allaround play. The swarming half-court defense
coaxed 34 turnovers from Lowell. In comparison, South City committed just 24.
The trapping, even when they broke it, it
got us to play faster, Carion said. And we
played really well.
Lowell kept pace early in the first quarter,

but with South City up 9-7, Cedeno and junior guard Valerie Avila got cooking. Cedeno
worked the perimeter through a double-team
with an impressive behind-the-back dribble
only to kick it out to Avila, who drilled a
three-pointer. Next time down the court,
Avila repaid the favor with a dime to Cedeno
who converted from beyond the arc, upping
the lead to 15-7.
Neveah Miller finished the quarter with six
points over the final 30 seconds amid an 11-0
run. But despite the Warriors leading 26-11
early in the second quarter, Lowell outscored
them 17-7 in the quarter to close the lead to
30-28 at the half.
The Warriors, though, opened the second
half on a 9-0 run, sparked by the exceptional
play of Jerlene Miller, who totaled six points,
four rebounds and four steals over the eightminute stanza. Meanwhile, the Warriors
defense held Lowell to just six field goals in
the second half.
We didnt play like a team playing its first
game, Carion said.
South City will have several hearty tests in
the opening weeks of play. The Warriors travel to Eastside College Prep for their first road

A new way and improved way to eat peppermint bark


By Elizabeth Karmel
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

I have always loved peppermint and


chocolate together and peppermint bark is
my favorite way to eat it.
Or it was until I created this peppermint bark variation of my favorite childhood Christmas cookie.
My mother made Spritz cookies every
Christmas for as long as I can remember.
She always made the simple butter cookies
in both chocolate and vanilla and we decorated them with colored sugar sprinkles. My
favorite shape was the poinsettia, because
you could eat the cookie, one petal at a
time.
The hardest thing about making this
recipe is using the cookie press. There is
no way around it you need a cookie
press. My mother used her mothers cookie press until it stopped working and
since then, we have both purchased many
cookie presses trying to find one that was

smooth and easy to work.


A cookie press looks like the culinary
version of a caulking gun and deposits only
enough dough to make one cookie. I tried
quite a few presses, and the best one that I
have found so far is the OXO cookie press. I
also love that it comes with all the traditional patterns like the Christmas tree,
wreath and several flowers, but also has an
elegant fleur de lis and a heart. You can also
buy extra seasonal discs and make spritz
year round. The extra Christmas discs also
have a great bow design that would be perfect for baby and bridal shower parties.
Once you have a good press, all you need
to make the cookie dough is a bowl and a
blending fork, or your hands. Ive taken the
basic chocolate spritz cookie recipe and
instead of decorating with sugar, I decorate
with melted chocolate, sprinkling with
crushed peppermint candies and drizzling
with white chocolate to create my
Peppermint Bark Spritz Cookie.

Decorate your cookies with melted chocolate, sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies and
See COOKIE, Page 18 drizzle them with chocolate to create a Peppermint Bark Spritz Cookie.

step in the citys efforts to study the
effects of sea level rise, as well as
human behaviors, on coastal erosion.
In response to a changing coastline,
its also considering realigning the
coastal trail as an adaptation strategy
known as managed retreat.
The erosion that we are experiencing along the bluff tops and the
California coast, these are things we
need to take into consideration now and
into the future as we do trails or put in
infrastructure, said Councilwoman
Marina Fraser. But its going to need
ongoing maintenance in the future,
because the coastal trail is so important
for not only people going to work and
going to school, but for our quality of
life.
One example of considering investments or improvements through the
lens of coastal erosion is the citys
recent decision to hire a consultant.
While in the process of planning to
repave a segment of the trail running

BIKE
Continued from page 1
Whether you live, commute through
or shop in Belmont, city officials
want more people of all ages to start
biking and walking. Last week, the
City Council approved the 2016 plan
that outlines lofty objectives such
as doubling the rate of walking and
biking in Belmont by 2030.
Theres the obvious greenhouse
gas emissions that are reduced when
you reduce the number of cars on the
road, said Mayor Eric Reed while discussing the goals of the plan. Theres
also the benefit of physical activity
over driving. Its getting people out
and about, walking and burning calories is a great thing.
To help achieve that goal, the city
will strive to create more bike paths
and contiguous sidewalks where possible, and make safer intersections. It
also seeks to promote routes to prime
destinations such as schools, public
transit, parks, neighborhoods and its
future downtown.
The city is in the process of trying
to create a more centralized downtown

and witnessed some of the activity


along the popular trail, the city may
opt to expand the study, said
Community Development Directory
John Doughty.
Were doing the study and we are
evaluating all causes of erosion and
looking at the implications and then
addressing what managed retreat looks
like for the coastal trail, Doughty said,
noting there are causes that include not
just the rising seas, but also runoff that
trickles west from the neighborhood
and mountains.
Ruddock noted it will be important
for the city to consider means to potentially reduce erosion and follow
through to protect infrastructure.
But like many coastal regions in the
area, the bluffs are often made up of a
patchwork of land owners and environmental regulatory agencies. For example, even relocating the Seymour
Bridge 135 feet moved the project into
San Mateo County territory and the city
had to receive approval from the Board
of Supervisors. And immediately east of
the existing trail is a county-owned
landfill that was capped years ago but
faces possible exposure from erosion.
Its important that we work with the
state and county because, throughout
the coast, areas of land are owned by different jurisdictions, Fraser said, notthrough the Belmont Village Specific
Plan and Reed said urging visitors or
residents to get out of their cars is a
key component.
Our goal is to create a walkable
downtown where people can get
everything they need within a small
area; and congestion from cars is
going to make that more difficult, not
less. So to the extent we can get people walking and biking, the better our
walkable downtown is going to be,
Reed said.
The downtown is in a primarily flat
area near El Camino Real and mass
transit stops possibly one of the
easier regions of the city to better
adapt for walking and biking. But the
citys geography may make certain
improvements in other areas more
challenging.
In a suburban community like
Belmont with lots of hills and narrow
streets, the challenge always is to find
ways to improve biking and pedestrian use when we often dont even have
enough room for sidewalks. So I think
the plan we adopted is realistic in that
it recognizes a lot of our streets arent
wide enough to stripe bike lanes, said
Councilman Doug Kim.
Kim, director of planning at
SamTrans, emphasized the plan seeks

Amazingly tender Hanukkah brisket


By Katie Workman
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Whether or not you celebrate the Jewish


holidays, a good brisket recipe is a nice
thing to have in your winter repertoire.
Brisket is a tough and fairly inexpensive
cut of meat that gets amazingly tender
after some quality time in the oven, and it
requires little attention or care while it
cooks. Thats a nice characteristic in a
piece of beef.
You can use a larger size piece of brisket
and just bump up the quantities of the
other
ingredients
proportionately.
Brisket is a very flexible meat as long as
you cook it low and slow, so the exact
measurements of onions and liquid are not
so important just keep the flavors balanced.
Brisket shrinks when it cooks, so keep
that in mind as you are assessing the size
you need. You can make brisket a couple of
days ahead and keep it in the fridge. Skim
off any fat that has accumulated on the
top, and slice the brisket before returning
it to the pot with the sauce and heating it
gently in the oven or on the stove.
Adding almost two heads of garlic
cloves to the sauce may seem crazy, but
they will mellow and also turn meltingly
soft in their papery skins as the brisket
cooks. Tell your guests to squeeze out the
roasted garlic from the skins and add it to
their sauce, or spread it on toast or crusty
bread (which you should provide). Make
sure to serve this with egg noodles or
potatoes to soak up all the sauce.
If you want a more subtle mushroom flavor, mix in some sliced button or cremini
mushrooms with the wild mushrooms.
This is also helpful budget-wise, as wild
mushrooms can be pricey (but as any
mushroom lover will tell you, worth every
penny).

BEEF BRISKET WITH


WILD MUSHROOMS
Serves 6
Start to finish: Four hours
2 heads garlic, cloves separated but
unpeeled
1/2 ounce dried porcini mushrooms

Brisket shrinks when it cooks, so keep that in mind as you are assessing the size you need.
2/3 cup boiling water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 2 1/2- to 3-pound piece beef brisket
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to
taste
1 red onion, halved and sliced
1 cup dry red wine
1 1/2 cups beef broth
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 pound sliced wild mushrooms, any
sort
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Chopped parsley or arugula to garnish
Preheat the oven to 300 F. Peel and
mince two of the garlic cloves and set
aside.
Place the porcini mushrooms in a small
bowl and add the boiling water. Let the
mushrooms soak for 20 minutes. Remove
them, squeeze out any extra water back

into the bowl, and then strain the soaking


liquid through a fine mesh strainer into a
large bowl. Chop the soaked mushrooms,
and set the mushrooms and the strained
soaking liquid aside.
Meanwhile, heat a large, deep ovenproof pan or stockpot with a lid over
medium high heat. Add the oil. Season the
brisket on both sides with salt and pepper.
Sear the brisket on both sides for about
four minutes per side, until browned.
Transfer the brisket to a large plate.
Return the pan with the oil to medium
heat. Add the onions, season with salt and

pepper, and saute for 5 minutes until softened and lightly browned. Add the wine
and stir, scraping up any browned bits
from the bottom, until the wine is reduced
by half. Add the beef broth, the chopped
soaked mushrooms, the strained mushroom soaking liquid, and the thyme to the
pot. Tuck the brisket back into the pot;
the meat will be about halfway submerged.
Tuck the remaining garlic cloves in their
skins around the meat into the liquid.
Cover the pot and transfer it to the preheated oven.
Cook for about three and a half hours
until the brisket is fork tender. Remove it
from the pot to a cutting board with a moat
to catch the juices, and let it rest for at
least 15 minutes. Let the braising liquid
rest in the pot.
Meanwhile, heat the butter in a very
large skillet over medium-high heat until
melted. Add the wild mushrooms and
reserved, minced garlic, season with salt
and pepper, and saute until the mushrooms
have turned nicely brown, and any liquid
that was released has been evaporated,
about eight minutes. Sprinkle in the balsamic vinegar and stir to release any
browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
Skim and discard any fat that has accumulated on the braising liquid. Stir the
sauteed mushrooms into the pot.
When the meat has finished resting, cut
it into slices as thin or thick as you like,
across the grain. Transfer the slices neatly
back to the pot, and nestle them into the
sauce and mushrooms. Serve hot.
Alternately, you may place the meat on a
deep serving platter with sides, and ladle
the sauce with the whole garlic cloves and
mushrooms over the top. Sprinkle over
the parsley or arugula.

video of the meeting Monday, Nov. 28.


The decision comes roughly six
weeks after the commission tabled a
decision on the proposal, as most of
its members felt the company had not
done enough to blend its new design
with the adjacent buildings amidst the
thriving shopping district.
But during the most recent discussion
commissioners expressed an appreciation for a willingness of the Cupertinobased technology company to think
differently.
You guys have done a terrific job of
addressing our concerns, said commission Chair Will Loftis. We appreciate it. Its nicely done.
Commissioner Richard Sargent
shared a similar perspective.
I like the changes, I think they look
really good, he said.
A majority of the alternations to the
initial proposal focus on the back of
the building, abutting the parking lot
facing Park Road, which officials initially claimed was not given consideration equal to the redesigned storefront
along Burlingame Avenue.
Commissioners had taken issue with
the long, blank walls on sides of the
store not serving as an entrance or exit
for shoppers, so Apple representatives
responded with a proposal adding more
windows, along with landscaping and
logos, to break up the buildings solid
outer shell.

The changes enhance not only the


look of the store, but the surrounding
neighborhood as well, according to a
letter to Burlingame officials from the
architecture firm managing the design
for Apple.
Taken together, these changes will
reinvigorate the rear of not only the
Apple store, but that of the two adjoining spaces as well, according to the
letter from Atilio Leveratto, senior
associate
vice
president
at
CallisonRTKL Architects. Each will
be articulated and distinguished from
the other, providing visual appeal as
well as an invitation for users to the
parking area to walk around to the
storefronts.
Commissioner Nirmala Bandrapalli
said she believed the proposals met
their intended mark of giving the building a more interesting aesthetic
appeal.
It complements the streetscape and
adds diversity to the block. This is
great, I really love the changes, she
said.
The proposed look of the entire
building is aligned with an effort by
Apple to roll out a new store design
across many of its retail locations. The
style mirrors many of the companys
devices, featuring a hard and simple
exterior giving way to a glassy and
sharp access point where customers can
engage with the products.

Ron Karp, who operates a real estate


firm near the Apple retail store, said he
believed the companys presence is an
asset to downtown Burlingame.
We are fortunate to have them, said
Karp.
Representatives from WilliamsSonoma and Gap, which have nearby
stores in the citys core commercial
district, also wrote letters supporting
the Apple proposal.
Bandrapalli cited the advocacy of
nearby businesses for allowing the renovations in justification of her favorable vote for the project.
I see so much support from other
property owners and merchants, that is
great news, she said.
Sargent expressed a similar sentiment.
I appreciated the way they have
worked with us and the community to
come up with a project that works, he
said.
Commissioner Richard Terrones was
absent from the meeting and Jeff
DeMartini recused himself from voting
because he owns stock in the company.
In other business, the commission
unanimously approved a proposal for
Bolder Cup Caf to open at 1326
Broadway. The caf will offer breakfast,
lunch and dinner, along with bakery
and pastry items, coffee, blended fruit
drinks as well as ice cream. It will occupy the space previously serving as
home to Broadway Hardware.

DEMS

Democrats that have taken a view of


more concern about impact of taxes.
The tremendous power of a supermajority had been the holy grail of
California politics. But it has lost
much of its significance since voters
decided in 2010 to no longer require a
two-thirds majority of lawmakers to
approve the state budget. The twothirds requirement had been blamed for
legislative gridlock and tense impasses.
When the new Legislature is sworn
in Monday, Democrats will control 55
of 80 Assembly seats and 27 of 40
Senate positions.
Yet Democrats say those supermajorities are more symbolic than practical, because winning them requires the
party to succeed in diverse areas ranging from liberal coastal districts to
working-class inland areas and conservative Orange County.
In addition, several incoming
Democrats won by razor-thin margins
after running as moderates and may not
be enthusiastic about voting for tax or
environmental measures.
Still, they will be under tremendous
pressure from members of their own

party, said Jon Coupal, president of


the
Howard Jarvis
Taxpayers
Association. He worries that they
wont be able to consistently hold out
against tax increases or efforts to roll
back limits on tax increases imposed
in measures such as Propositions 13 or
218.
The moderates were able to repel
some of the more aggressive instincts
of the progressives by saying, Well,
the Republicans will never go for
that, Coupal said.
Now, moderates will hold the decisive votes.
They cant hide, Coupal said.
Assembly Minority Leader Chad
Mayes, a Republican from Yucca
Valley, said voters will know to blame
Democrats when problems dont get
fixed.
Now theyre not going to be able to
blame us and shame us for it, Mayes
said. They own it all.
Democrats last had a supermajority
in 2012 but did not use it to raise
taxes. They didnt hold it for long,
however, because three Democratic
senators were indicted and suspended
from the Legislature.

surrounding the states cap on pollution.
Lawmakers mostly Democrats
voted earlier this year to strengthen
and extend the climate change goals
but were unable to muster the twothirds supermajority that would inoculate the program from several legal
challenges.
For more than a year, Brown and top
Democratic lawmakers have unsuccessfully promoted plans to raise gas
taxes and vehicle registration fees to
tackle a $57 billion backlog in road
maintenance. Last week, they said
theyre giving up for now and will try
again next year with the newly elected
supermajorities.
Im not certain that it will be any
kind of a slam dunk, said Will
Kempton, executive director of
Transportation California, an advocacy group seeking a transportation
funding plan. Particularly in the
Assembly, I think there are moderate

court, you are hereby cited and required
to appear before the judge presiding in
Department 5 of this court on 12-19.

and procedures that relate to this proceeding for the termination of custody
and control of Santiago Martinez and

Section 7822 of the Family Code.
1. At the beginning of the proceeding the

will be determined by the court. The
amount must be paid by the real parties

counsel to become acquainted with the
case.
