Prosecutor, defender consider legal pot impact

Proposition 64 to affect San Mateo County courts by reducing or dismissing some criminal charges
By Samantha Weigel

Just one month into recreational

marijuana becoming legalized in
California, those most familiar
with prosecuting and defending

bracing for the effects of the new

Of the pendDigiacinto
charges to be dismissed, Wagstaffe
emphasized many of those defendants are likely facing other alle-

gations that would keep them

behind bars or in the system.
Compared to Proposition 47
the voter-approved 2014 law that
reduced penalties for six crimes
such as grand theft or use of illegal
drugs Wagstaffe said hes not
expecting the Adult Use of
Marijuana Act to have as much of
an effect on the local court.
Instead, he believes there are two
prime issues of concern an

said, emphasizing those who

Bilingual education act lauded

Prop. 58 passing draws cheers, though county impact may be limited
By Austin Walsh

County educators praised the

approval of the bilingual education initiative on the fall election
ballot, claiming it will clear the
path to offering local students
improved language instruction
and support.
California Proposition 58 passing on Election Day received
acclaim from officials who believe
the initiative will allow teachers

to hone skills required for students

across the state to stay competitive in a modern education landscape.
But amidst a diverse Peninsula
community where many schools
already offer bilingual education
programs to meet the needs of
their students and families, some
said the new act will likely have
little sway on the services already
It doesnt change much of what
we have done and what we will do

because our district has already

provided support for English
learners, said Linda Montes, a
director of curriculum and instruction in the Redwood City
Elementary School District.
Seventy-three percent of voters
supported Proposition 58, allowing teachers to offer enhanced lessons in Spanish, Mandarin and
languages other than English. The

With the ink barely dry on an

agreement to redevelop a shopping center into the fourth Foster
City elementary school, questions
are already being raised regarding
the legitimacy of the deal.
Foster City Mayor Herb Perez
said he does not believe the $61
million contract allowing the San
Mateo-Foster City Elementary
School District to purchase the
Charter Square shopping center
and allow the property owner
Westlake Realty to build the
school holds weight.
But an attorney representing the
school district disagreed and
claimed such a deal is a relatively
common fashion of delivering
similar projects.
This concept of a developerbuilt school is not one that is new
or novel, said Clarissa Canady,
an attorney advising the district
on the deal finalized earlier this
Alternatively, Perez claims
building the development agreement into the terms of the proper-

threat of a lawsuit, because

qualified and
interested companies.
If I were a betting man, I think
it is more likely than not that
someone is going to say something about this, Perez said. I
dont see how they couldnt.
School officials should have
struck a deal to purchase the land,
then encouraged Westlake Realty
to participate in the open bid
process for the construction contract alongside other interested
firms, said Perez, citing the most
conventional method of building
a school.
Canady noted though there are a
variety of legally endorsed and
accepted alternative methods of
building schools which do not

Macaw poses in mans mug shot
after unlucky court appearance
PORTLAND A 4-year-old macaw
named Bird is an instant celebrity
after appearing in a posed booking
mug shot in Oregon with his unfortunate owner.
Craig Buckner left Bird in a tree outside court in Washington County while
he went in for an appearance Thursday
in an ongoing drug and theft case, said
Sgt. Bob Ray, the sheriffs
spokesman. Buckner was not expecting to be arrested, but when he fell
asleep while waiting for his case to be
called, he was taken for a drug urine
test and failed, Ray said.
When he realized he was going to be
arrested, Buckner got very upset and
deputies finally realized why.
He was very concerned about Bird
the bird, Ray said. Very distraught.
Bird was 30 feet up the tree, Ray
said, and it was getting dark and rainy.
Temperatures were in the low 40s.
Deputies realized there was no way

to them.

outside and removed the restraints
from one of his hands.
Bird immediately flew down to
Buckner and landed on his shoulder.

several hours and feasted on peanuts
until they reached a friend who could

Horrific Oakland warehouse fire death toll now 33

Teens listed among dead, count expected
to rise as firefighters comb through rubble
By Kristin J. Bender
and Brian Melley

OAKLAND The death toll

from a fire that tore through a
warehouse hosting a late-night
dance party climbed to 33 on
Sunday as firefighters painstakingly combed through rubble for
others believed to still be missing and made the grim announcement that teenagers were among
the dead.
The building that went up in
flames was known as the Ghost
Ship, had been carved into artist
studios and was an illegal home
for a rotating cast of a dozen or
more people, according to former
denizens who said it was a cluttered death trap with few exits,
piles of wood and a mess of
snaking electric cords.
If you were going there for a
party, you wouldnt be aware of
the maze that you have to go
through to get out, said Danielle
Boudreaux, a former friend of the
couple who ran the warehouse.
The death toll was expected to
rise, as crews using buckets and
shovels slowly made their way
through the building, finding
victims where they least expected them, Alameda County
Sheriffs Sgt. Ray Kelly said.
Less than half of the charred
remains of the partly collapsed
structure had been searched as of
Sunday afternoon, Kelly said.
When we started this investigation, if you had told us that you
would have 33 victims, we
wouldnt have believed you,
Kelly said. I dont know how
many people are left in there.
The victims include 17-yearolds and people from Europe and
Asia and range in age from their
teens to 30-plus years old, Kelly

said. Officials have identified

seven people who were killed
using fingerprints, though they
have not released the identifications.
Among the dead was Donna
Kellogg, according to her father,
Keith Slocum. He declined additional comment.
Anxious family members who
feared the worst gathered at the
sheriffs office to await word on
their loved ones. They were told
they may have to provide DNA
samples to help identify
As many as 100 people were
there for a party Friday night
when the fire broke out just
before midnight. Fire officials
were still investigating the cause
of the blaze, but they said clutter

into the rehab center, and convinced Micah Allison to leave

month after repeated complaints
from neighbors who said trash
was piling up and people were

Planning Department.
The city had not confirmed
people lived there, but a former
resident, Shelley Mack, said she

spaces was stunning, said

Boone said she had just

and stepped outside when someone yelled, Fire!
In a couple of minutes there
were flames coming out of the
windows and black smoke was
just billowing out of the house,
she said.
Some of the people who got
out were crying and others stood
silently in shock as firefighters
arrived to put the flames out.

a telephone number for her
Saturday. Efforts to reach her at
other Oakland addresses associated with her were not successful.

Trumps inauguration set to test

nations readiness for healing
By Nancy Benac

WASHINGTON One thing you

can count on during inauguration season in Washington: People of all
stripes will nd a reason to show up
whether its to celebrate or commiserate.
There are parties and protests to
attend, stars to gawk at, receptions to be

Less than two months out from
Inauguration Day, theres a different
dynamic surrounding the planning for
Donald Trumps swearing-in than the
unbridled enthusiasm that swirled
around the installation of the rst
black president in 2008.
Crowd expectations are down.
Fewer A-list celebrities are likely to

descend. Hotels still have rooms to be

But congressional ofces are maxing out on ticket requests for the Jan. 20
swearing-in. Trumps inaugural committee is wooing big donors with candlelight dinners, exclusive luncheons
and premier access to balls. Interest
groups are lining up sideline events.
And among those still mourning
Hillary Clintons loss, there is
plenty of counter-programming
afoot, including plans for a giant
womens march aimed at sending a
deant message to the incoming president.
Before the election, District of
Columbia planners set an early estimate of 800,000-900,000 people for
this years inauguration and they
havent revised that number yet,
according to Christopher Geldart,

director of D.C.s Department of

Homeland Security and Emergency
Management. But theres scant expectation of replicating the 1.8 million
people who descended on Washington
for Barack Obamas rst inaugural.
Nor will Hollywood turn out as it did
for Obama, whose two inaugurals attracted
the likes of Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen,
Usher, Jamie Foxx, Jay-Z, Oprah Winfrey
andmany moreA-listers.
More than any election weve seen
in a very long time, the Hollywood

Democrats task: Rebuild the blue political wall in Midwest

DES MOINES Democrats need

sucker. We shattered it, man. That

Trump expands list of candidates to head State Dept

By Laurie Kellman

WASHINGTON President-elect Donald

Trump is expanding his pool of candidates
for secretary of state, leaving unclear
whether former CIA Director David
Petraeus guilty plea for leaking classified
information disqualifies him to serve as the
nations top diplomat.
Theres not a finite list of candidates
for secretary of state, Trump adviser
Kellyanne Conway told reporters on
Sunday. More than four. Who knows how
many finalists there will be?
The remark comes a week after Trumps
aides confirmed that the president-elect had
settled on four finalists for the post. Two
people close to the transition told The
Associated Press that Trump is moving
away from two of the four: former New York
City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Mitt
Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential
That would leave Petraeus as a contender,
along with Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob
Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee. Both people close

to the transition said Trumps prolonged

decision-making process has left the door
open to other options. Among other possibilities, one official says is Jon Huntsman,
a former Republican Utah governor who
also served as the ambassador to China and
speaks Mandarin.
The people close to the transition spoke
on condition of anonymity because they
were not authorized to discuss the private
process publicly.
There was other evidence that Trump is
looking beyond the known four contenders. Vice President-elect Mike Pence on
Sunday listed the quartet, but added a fresh
reference to former U.N. ambassador John
Bolton or others who may be added to the
list of candidates.
I think the person who will make the
decision about our next secretary of state is
the president-elect, Pence said on ABC.
And hell factor the totality of Gen.
Petraeus career in making that decision.
Pence also referred to Petraeus as a
hero. But it seemed unclear Sunday even
to Petraeus and Trumps inner circle whether
the retired generals guilty plea has turned
off Trump.


Former CIA director David Petraeus arrives with Anthony Scaramucci, a member of thepresident elect's transition team, to meet with President-elect Donald Trump in New York.

Gun-rights backers vow to go on offense during Trump years

By Ryan Foley

IOWA CITY Firearms enthusiasts who embraced Donald

Trumps campaign and his fullthroated support of the Second
Amendment are expecting a
sweeping expansion of gun rights
under his administration and a
Congress rmly in Republican
Among their priorities: eliminating gun-free zones at schools,
reducing requirements for back-

ground checks and ensuring that

concealed carry handgun permits
from one state are recognized
everywhere in the U.S.
This is our historic moment to
go on offense and to defeat the
forces that have aligned against
our freedom once and for all,
Wayne LaPierre, chief executive of
the National Rie Association,
said in a video after the Nov. 8
election. The individual right to
carry a rearm in defense of our
lives and our families does not and
should not end at any state line.

In pursuing their agenda, the

gun lobby and its GOP supporters
could nd themselves at odds with
two other tenets of Republican
orthodoxy: states rights and local
It would be ironic to see conservatives who long have professed a
belief in states rights override
states choices in this area, said
Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the
University of California Irvine
School of Law.
One of the NRAs paramount
goals is getting Congress to pass

a law requiring all states to recognize concealed-carry handgun permits issued by any other state.
Currently, many permit holders
must leave their weapons at home
when traveling or risk violating
other states laws. NRA supporters
say permits should be treated like
drivers licenses.
Trump endorsed the idea during
the campaign, but it is likely to
face intense opposition from
Democrats in states with tight gun
restrictions, including California
and the president-elects home

state of New York.

States make their own judgments
on who should be allowed to have
a concealed carry permit, and their
eligibility requirements vary based
on an applicants criminal history,
age and training.
Many law enforcement organizations warn the change would mean
encountering more guns during
trafc stops and in tourist areas.
They also say there is no way to
easily check the validity of an outof-state rearm permit because
there is no nationwide database.

Renzi quits; Italian populists seek quick vote to win power

By Frances DEmilio

ROME -- Italian voters dealt

Premier Matteo Renzi a stinging
defeat on his reforms referendum,
announcement and galvanizing
the populist, opposition 5-Star
Movement's determination to
gain national power soon.
The outcome also energized the
anti-immigrant Northern League
party, an ally of French far-right
leader Marine Le Pen, a candidate in
France's presidential race.
The blow to Renzi also delivered
a rebuke to Italy's industrialists,
banks and other establishment
institutions, which had staunchly
backed the referendum. The political upset, which could spook
investors, comes just as the government had made some inroads in
cutting the staggering rate of youth
employment and while Italy's
banks have urgent need for recapitalization.
During the campaign, the risk of
political instability in Italy,

Europe's fourth-largest economy,

triggered market reaction, with
bank stocks sinking and borrowing costs on sovereign debt rising.
The Movement, led by anti-euro
comic Beppe Grillo, spearheaded
the No camp on the constitutional
reforms, a package aimed at updating Italy's post-war Constitution

Free range children

By Kent Lauder

aving been around for most of

72 years allows me a certain
perspective, not always available to younger generations, concerning how children are brought up today
compared to my own era (50s- 60s).
Is this another one of those insufferable we walked 10 miles to school
both ways uphill
in the snow comparisons? (Well,
yes, only the last
snow we had here
was one weekend
back in 62 all
two inches of it).
The most significant difference
today is the increase in parental supervision. As kids, we had certain freedoms
denied the youth of today. We would set
out on a Saturday morning, away from
parental control, and not come home
until late in the day, with parents confident knowing that, being with friends,
we could take care of ourselves.
In particular, we did not have highly
organized sports programs, but made do
with our own makeshift activities. We
would go to a nearby field or basketball
hoop and choose teams according to
ability. If the game turned out to be onesided, wed reconfigure the teams; three
good players against four lesser ones,
or whatever. To win was only an immediate goal, and quickly forgotten once
completed. In other words, we took the
responsibility to organize, lay the
ground rules, follow them, then not care

about the outcome. No guiding parental
authority or trophy incentive required.
Those of us on the Peninsula now live
in an ultra impacted environment in
which the growing number of children
overwhelms the relatively less open
spaces on which they have to play. With
some of the existing fields now gated,
locked and open by appointment only,
it makes it difficult for kids to spontaneously play the way we once did.
One good compensating factor has
been youth sports programs. These
leagues exist because of the hard work
parents and organizers do in encouraging kids to get out and engage in
healthy activity. The problem is, it is
run by adults.
As a parent, weekends were devoted
to transporting the kids to soccer
games and watching them play. In my
case, as assistant coach, I adopted the
wise, leadership tactic of yelling at
them (Kick the ball!). Fortunately, I
was never a head coach.
I was not necessarily a fervent parent,
but while most of us were rooting for
our kids to excel, we also had an excessive interest in the outcome. Zealous,
abusive parents are not tolerated in
these organized activities, but their
vicarious competitive nature does sometimes rear its ugly head.
There was a survey done some years
back in which very young players were

asked to rate, from a prepared list of

nine or 10 items, what part of soccer
they liked best: i.e. being with friends,
winning, learning skills, pizza after
the game, etc. Pizza of course was number one winning came in dead last.
While they have their priorities
straight, it certainly does not match
the agenda of many parents.
Todays parents seem more controlling than ever; wanting to be in every
aspect of their childrens lives. While it
may seem innocuous enough for them
to cheer on their childrens teams, their
very presence at the games can be
intimidating, and at least in the childrens minds, escalates the idea that success can come only through winning.
I believe children would be happier
playing in an atmosphere of diminished fervor, and for its own sake. But
spontaneous play is harder to come
by, so perhaps in league play, parents
could back off from the distracting
shouting and screaming; or better yet,
just stay home. Since children are
innately fair-minded, we might be
amazed at what they can work out for
themselves when compelled to be
accountable and responsible. That is
what learning is all about.
We all have anxieties for our children
in todays oftentimes scary world, but
parents are doing a disservice by being
overprotective and hovering over
them. For them to succeed in the future,
they may need to count on those lessons they learned all by themselves.
After all, the plays the thing.

contractor and very longtime resident of

Letters to the editor

Mike Brown asserted that Trump won
in a landslide and that, according to
information provided by reputable internet experts, 80 percent of the country
is Republican (Letter to the editor,
Self-absorbed liberal Democrats in the

That would be a neat trick since
Hillary Clinton got around 65 million
votes to Donald Trumps 62.5 million.
In other words, Trump got his patoot
handed to him in the actual vote count
of people, not that the majority of people who voted for you counts in

I think it is great veterans can enter for

Point who would cut the entry fee in half
if one could prove, with a D.O.D. card,
that they were in the service.
As far as information put out in other

was brochure printed in Spanish and the

Maybe the county could spend some

What to do about our

lost working class jobs

uring the past presidential campaign, Donald Trump

and Bernie Sanders used the plight of working class
Americans as their main focus. For Trump, it was
opportunism. For Sanders, a socialist, it was his longtime
belief that working men and women were exploited. Both
promised, if elected, they would stop trade deals which
exchanged American jobs for cheaper foreign labor. But will
this bring back jobs? Hardly. If not, what can we do about
lost working class jobs?
I thought a friend of mine, a longtime community activist
and Democrat who grew up poor
and lived the life of hard physical labor, might have some
answers. He knew Trump was
going to win. Because faced
with frustrations and feelings of
being abandoned, human always
vote for a perceived strong
man. He agreed with many
other post-election critics, that
the Democratic Party had turned
its back on working class men
and women and instead embraced
identity politics. He showed me
a map where in 44 states its easy to get a permit to carry a
concealed weapon. Only California, New York and a few
other East Coast states have strict regulations. Despite my
protests, he insisted this was important enough to 10 percent of Americans to make a difference in national elections.
He agreed that many of these jobs are not coming back.
The biggest threat to blue collar and now white collar workers is automation. This is being felt around the world, not
just in the United States.
Foxconn in China, which makes iPhones, has laid off
60,000 workers. Berkshire Hathaway has consolidated
Heinz operations in Canada and, while most of its ketchup is
made in Ohio, closed a plant in Leamington, Ontario. And so
it goes. Even with the revival of the U.S. automobile industry, workers are not making the $22 an hour they used to
make at General Motors.
The best solution is to ensure that anyone working full
time eight hours a day makes enough money to support a
family and be off the public dole. The opposite of Walmart
where low wages equals taxpayer subsidies. In many states,
Walmart employees are the largest group of Medicaid and
food stamp recipients. Other solutions are to increase the
earned income tax credit and the minimum wage.
David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker, held a remarkable interview (Nov. 28 issue) with the soon to be former
president. Obama said: The prescription that some offer,
which is stop trade, reduce global integration is not going
to work. We are going to have to redesign the social compact in some fairly fundamental ways . It begins with ...
early childhood education, continuous learning, job training, a basic social safety net, expanding the earned-income
tax credit, investments in infrastructure which ... arent
shipped overseas. All those things accelerate growth, give
you more of a runway. But at some point, when the problem
is not just Uber but driverless Uber, when radiologists are
losing their jobs to A.I., then were going to have to figure
out how do we maintain a cohesive society and a cohesive
democracy in which productivity and wealth generation are
not automatically linked to how many hours you put in,
where the links between production and distribution are
broken, in some sense. Because I can sit out over the internet, and suddenly I just made a couple of million bucks, and
the person whos looking after my kid while Im doing that
has no leverage to get paid more than 10 bucks an hour.
Where Trump won votes, many want to keep their health
insurance under the Affordable Care Act. But his new secretary of Health and Human Services, U.S. Rep. Tom Price, a
Georgia Republican, is someone who wants to eliminate it.
However, it is good news for 800 workers at Carrier. Trump
had promised during the campaign to stop Carrier from moving more than 2,000 jobs to Mexico. Now 800 will keep
theirs because of a deal which involves lucrative tax exemptions and most likely promises to its parent company, a
major federal defense contractor. But the thousands of other
endangered Rust Belt jobs may not be that easy to keep. A
manufacturing job is one of the only ladders to fulfilling the
American dream for someone with only a high school education. Service jobs are out there but they dont pay as much,
not enough to afford a home and send your kids to college.
In this changing world there is no one easy answer.
Undelivered promises will make the vulnerable angrier
and hungrier for a strong man who can solve their problems, no matter what the cost to democratic values and
national security.

Federal government blocks Dakota Access pipeline route

By James MacPherson


Army Corps of Engineers said
Sunday that it wont grant an easement for the Dakota Access oil
pipeline in southern North
Dakota, handing a victory to the
Standing Rock Sioux tribe and its
supporters, who argued the project
would threaten the tribes water
source and cultural sites.
North Dakotas leaders criticized
the decision, with Gov. Jack
Dalrymple calling it a serious
mistake that prolongs the dangerous situation of having several hundred protesters who are
camped out on federal land during
cold, wintry weather. U.S. Rep.
Kevin Cramer said its a very
chilling signal for the future of
infrastructure in the United States.
The four-state, $3.8 billion project is largely complete except for
the now-blocked segment underneath Lake Oahe, a Missouri River
reservoir. Assistant Secretary for
Civil Works Jo-Ellen Darcy said in
a news release that her decision was
based on the need to explore alternate routes for the pipelines
crossing. Her full decision doesnt
rule out that it could cross under the
reservoir or north of Bismarck.
Although we have had continuing discussion and exchanges of
new information with the Standing
Rock Sioux and Dakota Access, its
clear that theres more work to do,
Darcy said. The best way to complete that work responsibly and
expeditiously is to explore alternate routes for the pipeline crossing.
The company constructing the
pipeline, Dallas-based Energy
Transfer Partners, had said it was
unwilling to reroute the project. It
had no immediate comment

The decision came a day before
the governments deadline for the
several hundred people at the Oceti
Sakowin, or Seven Council Fires,
encampment to leave the federal
land. But demonstrators say theyre
prepared to stay, and authorities
say they wont forcibly remove
As the news spread Sunday,
cheers and cheers and chants of

Lakota Sioux broke out among
the protesters. Some in the crowd
banged drums. Miles Allard, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux, said
he was pleased but remained cautious, saying, We dont know what
Trump is going to do.
The whole world is watching,
Allard added. Im telling all our people to stand up and not to leave until
this is over.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch
said Sunday that the Department of
Justice will continue to monitor the

protest site.
I have grandchildren, and Im
going to have great grandchildren,
she said. They need water. Water is
why Im here.
Standing Rock Sioux tribal chairman Dave Archambault didnt
immediately respond to messages
left seeking comment.

Kirchmeier, whose department has
done much of the policing for the
protests, said that local law

enforce the law.
U.S. Secretary for the Interior
Sally Jewell said in a statement that
the Corps thoughtful approach ...
ensures that there will be an indepth evaluation of alternative
routes for the pipeline and a closer
look at potential impacts.
Earlier Sunday, an organizer with
Veterans Stand for Standing Rock
said tribal elders had asked the military veterans not to have confrontations with law enforcement of-

cials, adding the group is there to

help out those whove dug in
against the project.
About 250 veterans gathered
about a mile from the main camp for
a meeting with organizer Wes Clark
Jr., the son of former Democratic
presidential candidate Gen. Wesley
Clark. The group had said about
2,000 veterans were coming, but it
wasnt clear how many actually
We have been asked by the elders not to do direct action, Wes
Clark Jr. said. He added that the
National Guard and law enforce-

ment have armored vehicles and

are armed, warning: If we come
forward, they will attack us.
Instead, he told the veterans, If
you see someone who needs help,
help them out.
Authorities moved a blockade
from the north end of the
Backwater Bridge with the conditions that protesters stay south of
it and come there only if there is a
prearranged meeting. Authorities
also asked protesters not to
remove barriers on the bridge,
which they have said was damaged

Trump threatens payback for US companies that move abroad

By Paul Wiseman

WASHINGTON President-elect Donald

Trump is threatening to impose heavy
taxes on U.S. companies that move jobs
overseas and still try to sell their products
to Americans.

But the plan could drive up prices for

U.S. businesses and consumers and risk
setting off a trade war if its legal to
begin with.
In a series of early-morning tweets
Sunday, Trump vowed a 35 percent tax on
products sold inside the U.S. by any business that fired American workers and built

a new factory or plant in another country.

Trump campaigned on a vow to help
American workers but also to reduce taxes
and regulations on businesses.
Trump tweets there will be a tax on our
soon to be strong border of 35 percent for
these companies wanting to sell their
product, cars, A.C. units, etc., back across
the border.
He says companies should be forewarned prior to making a very expensive

Gary Hufbauer, senior fellow at the

Peterson Institute for International
Economics, says Trump would face a
potent legal challenge if he tried to impose
taxes, known as tariffs, on specific companies without congressional approval.
Hufbauer also doubts that Trump could
identify a group of companies those that
move jobs overseas, then ship goods back
into America for special tariffs. Im
skeptical, he says, predicting that courts
would block such a move.

State champs!
Menlo brings home
Division IV state title
By Terry Bernal

ORANGE Just up the road from Disneyland is where Menlo

Schools volleyball dreams finally came true.
It was three years ago when the Lady Knights last made the trip to
Santiago Canyon College for a state title game when a 1-set lead
and a 24-18 advantage in Game 2 slip away.
So, even though Menlo (25-8 overall) swept past Point LomaSan Diego (24-13) in Saturdays CIF Division IV state championship game 25-18, 25-13, 25-21, senior libero Jessica Houghton
the only Menlo player left from the 2013 team was never entirely at ease with her teams commanding lead.
That was the score of [Saturdays] first game, 24-18, so that was
haunting, Jessica Houghton said.
Menlo certainly played with ease, though, topping Point
Loma in overall match kills 49-24. And the Knights were taking
no chances of a redux of the Game 2 mishap from three years
ago, dominating Saturdays second set with 17 kills to Point
Lomas four.
The Knights serve receive set the tone for the balanced attack,
playing a near perfect game by not allowing an ace against a
usually sharp serving opponent. And once the ball was in play,
Jessica Houghton (14 digs) and younger sister Sianna Houghton
(11 digs) ruled the back row.
Menlos overall effort drew plenty of praise from their firstyear head coach Marco Paglialunga. But the Italian-born coachs
initial reaction was short and sweet.
Bueno, Paglialunga said.
Later he added: I think the girls have to be very proud of what
they did today. This is probably the best game weve played on
blocking and defense. Thats our strength. That needed to be our
And the rhythm carried over to Menlos offense.
The Knights sparred with Point Loma early in Game 1 but tied at 66, setter Kristen Sellers inverted Menlos attack with two key assists
to outside hitter Sianna Houghton. With Menlos other setter in the 62 offense, sophomore Selina Xu, dominating the right side, Sianna
Houghton took advantage on the left side by tooling back-to-back kills
to give the Knights some breathing room at 8-6.
Point Loma closed the lead to 12-11 on a block by junior Rebecca
Nuanez, but the Knights then turned to middle hitter Mia
Vandermeer for consecutive kills. Then up 24-18 for set point,
despite Jessica Houghton being haunted by memories of her freshman season, the rest of the Knights, having not played for that
2013 state runner-up team, werent affected by any bad memories.

USC claims Brady breaks QB wins record

soccer title
in San Jose
By Kyle Hightower



SAN JOSE Katie Johnson scored twice in

the final 16 minutes to lead Southern California
to a 3-1 victory over top-ranked West Virginia
in the NCAA womens College Cup championship game Sunday at Avaya Stadium.
I felt like the goal against us was kind of my
fault. I turned a ball over in the middle, said
Johnson, a senior whose career was threatened
two years ago by her second ACL knee injury. I
felt like I had to make up for that. I honestly just
wanted to win.
The second-seeded Trojans (19-4-2) also captured the national title in 2007. They are the
fourth school to win multiple College Cup
The Mountaineers (23-2-2) lost for the first
time since a 1-0 setback to Georgetown back on
Sept. 18. West Virginia had a 17-game unbeaten
streak snapped, and allowed three goals for the
only time all season.
West Virginia outshot USC 21-8 and held a 91 edge in corner kicks, but trailed 1-0 just 1:22
into the game after Morgan Andrews.
No one finished better than Johnson, who sat
out last season while rehabilitating after ACL
surgery on her right knee. She tore ligaments in
her left knee in high school.
Johnson, who also had winning goal in
USCs 1-0 semifinal win over Georgetown on
Friday, was wide open in front of the net when
Leah Pruitt took a pass up the left sideline, beat
defender Easther Mayi Kith, and delivered a perfect cross. Johnson simply rolled the ball into
the goal to the right of goalkeeper Rylee Foster.
Johnson, selected the College Cups most
outstanding offensive player, scored again off
an assist from Nicole Molen in the 87th minute.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Tom Brady now

stands alone when it comes to career wins
by an NFL quarterback.
Brady became the leagues leader in victories among QBs, earning his 201st by
throwing for 269 yards and a touchdown to
lead the New England Patriots past the
struggling Los Angeles Rams 26-10 on
Brady, who was 33 of 46, had tied Peyton
Manning last week in a win over the New
York Jets.
Its always been about winning, and Ive
been very fortunate to be on a lot of great
teams, Brady said of reaching the milestone. Im just really grateful.
His lone touchdown pass came on a 14yard pass to Chris Hogan in the first quarter.
LeGarrette Blount scored the games first

The Rams entered the game ranked 31st in

the fewest by a team in a game this season.
Los Angeles was outgained 402-162 for

and Penn State followed two difficult
paths to reach a remarkable reunion
eight years later in the Rose Bowl.
The Trojans will face the Big Ten
champions on Jan. 2 in the 103rd edition of the Granddaddy of Them All. The
rematch of the 2009 game showcases
two venerable football programs that
have emerged from bad times since their
last trip to this traditional postseason
destination for their conferences.
I cant think of a better reward for
our football team after this season,
USC coach Clay Helton said. These
are the things you dream about as a little kid.
USC (9-3) will meet Penn State (112) in a rematch of the Trojans 38-24
victory eight years ago the last trip

to the Rose Bowl for either team. Since

then, both programs were rocked to
their foundations by scandals and
NCAA sanctions.
But both capped years of progress
with breakthroughs this fall, recovering from similarly slow starts to
become two of the nations top teams.
Coach James Franklins Nittany
Lions have won nine straight games,
culminating in a 38-31 victory over
Wisconsin on Saturday night in the Big
Ten championship game. Penn State
finished fifth in the final College
Football Playoff rankings, just ahead
of Michigan.
How humbled and honored we are to
have this opportunity, Franklin said.
I think this is a game and a bowl that
players and coaches grow up dreaming
about having an opportunity to play in
and be a part of one day.
Heltons Trojans have won eight

games in a row, capped by back-toback victories over top rivals UCLA

and Notre Dame. The Trojans barely
missed out on the Pac-12 title game
between Washington and Colorado
who were both beaten convincingly by
USC but overtook the Buffaloes in
the final playoff rankings to snag their
record 34th Rose Bowl berth.
Penn State will make its fourth
appearance in the Rose Bowl, including three against USC. The Rose Bowl
berth is another milestone in the programs revival after the scandal surrounding former defensive coordinator
Jerry Sandusky, who was indicted on 40
counts of sex crimes in 2011.
USC has played in far more Rose
Bowls than any other team. The
Trojans downtown campus is 15 miles
from the stadium, which became the
programs second home during the
dominant years of coach Pete Carroll.

win total he posted in his first two years
combined as Oaklands playoff drought
reached 13 seasons.
Its an exciting time in Oakland, Carr
said. Its definitely fun times. Weve come a
long way. ... But we still have yet to do anything.
The defense also tightened by forcing three
straight three-and-outs and then getting a
turnover when Khalil Mack deflected Tyrod
Taylors pass that Nate Allen intercepted .
Oakland took over at the 16 and put the game

leagues longest playoff drought. A big day

CHICAGO Colin Kaepernick and the

San Francisco 49ers tried everything. Deep
throws and out routes. Crossing patterns
and shovel passes. Nothing worked.
Call it a snow day for San Franciscos aerial attack.
Kaepernick completed just one pass for 4
yards before he was replaced by Blaine
Gabbert in the fourth quarter, and the lowly
49ers dropped their 11th straight game with
a 26-6 loss to the Chicago Bears at a wintry
Soldier Field on Sunday.
San Francisco (1-11) finished with a
record-low 6 yards passing while strengthening its position for at least the No. 2
overall pick in next years NFL draft, handing a third win to one of their main competitors for those prized selections at the
top of each round.
The winless Cleveland Browns, off this
weekend, have the pole position for the top
spot heading into the final quarter of the
The April draft is about all 49ers fans have
to look forward to these days.
We have to continue to keep building,
keep progressing, Kaepernick said. This
is a setback, most definitely. But we have to
continue to keep pushing forward.
Whether thats with Kaepernick or
by LeSean McCoy, who had 130 yards rushing, helped stake Buffalo to the big lead, but
it wasnt enough.
The Bills are two games behind Denver for
the second wild-card spot in the AFC and
could be headed to a 17th straight season
without a playoff berth.
It was one of those situations where
everything they did went right and we just
couldnt make a play, safety Corey Graham
said. Ive never really been in a situation
like that where everything went wrong, just
like you couldnt make a play, and then those
guys went on a roll and it was like everything
they did turned to gold.

Carrs finger
A week after injuring the pinkie on his
throwing hand and missing a series, Carr was
able to play without a glove on his right
hand. But the injury still hampered Carr to a
degree as he took no snaps under center to
protect the injury, even in short-yardage situations.

Gabbert at quarterback
remains to be seen.
Coach Chip Kelly was
asked about his starter
for next weekends visit
by the New York Jets.
Thats not my decision, Kaepernick said.
Blaine Gabbert My feelings on it really
dont matter at this
point. Im just going to do everything I can
to make sure Im prepared.
Kaepernick attempted five passes and was
sacked five times. Gabbert, who led San
Francisco to a 26-20 overtime win in
Chicago a year ago, was 4 for 10 for 35
The 49ers previous franchise low for net
yards passing was 10 against Detroit on
Oct. 6, 1963, and it looked as if that number
was safe before Gabbert was sacked by
Leonard Floyd in the end zone with 1:55
We just had breakdowns here and there all
day long and it definitely showed, Gabbert
While the 49ers are barreling toward perhaps the worst season in franchise history,
Kaepernick had been a bright spot of late.
He had passed for 1,110 yards and eight
touchdowns in four starts since San
Franciscos bye week, nearly rallying the

Fast start
The Bills gained a season-high 147 yards
in the first quarter and scored on their first
two drives with a field goal by Dan Carpenter
and Mike Gillislees 1-yard run early in the
second. Buffalo ran just once on nine plays
on the opening drive and then ran on nine of
11 plays the next drive.

Fast finish
The Raiders took over with 30 seconds left
in the first half at their own 15 and managed
to get points. Carr completed four straight
passes for 57 yards to set up Sebastian
Janikowskis 47-yard field goal that cut
Buffalos lead to 10-9 at the half. The last
time a team started a drive shy of its own 20
with 30 seconds or fewer remaining in the
first half and scored came in 2005 when San
Francisco did it for a field goal against
Jacksonville, according to Pro Football

49ers to a victory in Miami last weekend.

But San Francisco emphasized the run
right from the start against the Bears and
Kaepernick never looked comfortable while
playing in a steady snowfall on a typical
winter day in Chicago.
I think the weather was something that
definitely played a factor, Kaepernick said.
We have to be able to do a better job managing that, handling it, and being able to
throw the ball still.
Kaepernicks 4-yard pass to tight end
Vance McDonald midway through the second quarter was the first completion of the
day for either team. Phil Dawson then
kicked the first of his two first-half field
goals, helping San Francisco to a 6-0 lead.
Chicago (3-9) got the ball back late in the
half, and thats when Matt Barkley started to
find his footing while Kaepernick continued
to falter. Barkley then directed the Bears to
Jordan Howard rushing touchdowns on three
straight possessions,
putting San
Francisco away.
We didnt handle the weather very well
from a passing game standpoint, said
Kelly, who coached with a heavy heart after
the recent death of his father, Paul. It was
the same for both teams, its not an excuse,
they played in the same conditions.

24-6 with 12:55 left, prompting Kelly to

Continued from page 11
I wasnt on that team so I didnt really care
about that, Xu said. We were just focusing
our game going forward and not worrying
about that.
Fitting, since it was Xus sixth set kill that
forced set point. Vandermeer followed with a
block to finish off the opening set, the
Knights 16th kill through Game 1.
Sophomore outside hitter Grace King also did
damage with three kills and two blocks.
Junior opposite hitter Ashley Dreyer also
added three kills.
Then in Game 2, Dreyer took charge in continuing Menlos dominance off the right side.
Dreyer and Xu went on to share the matchhigh with 12 kills apiece, 23 of those coming from the opposite side. And after Dreyer
gave the Knights an early 4-3 lead with her
first set kill, they would never trail as the 6-2
junior fronted an attack that saw seven different Menlo players record kills.
I think we varied the attack really effectively, Sellers said.
Once again it was the Menlo defense that
allowed Sellers (21 assists) and Xu (16
assists) to run a balanced attack. And the
back-row exploits ran much deeper than just
the Houghton sisters. Xu and sophomore
defensive specialist Riley Holland each
played clutch defense late in Game 2, including Xu barreling into her own bench to pick
up a dig and extend a rally for an eventual
Point Loma hitting error to force set point.
Sellers ultimately finished Game 2 with a
dump kill to send the Knights into Game 3
riding a wave of momentum.
In Game 3, Holland and Sianna Houghton
set the tone by laying out for several clutch
digs. Up 8-4, they each laid out for one-handed digs to extend a long rally and exploit one
of Point Lomas 17 field errors in the match.
Then up 19-13, with Jessica Houghton rotating off the floor, and Sianna Houghton in the
front row, Holland produced another clutch
dig, and Dreyer scrapped for a reflex front-row
dig, amid a long rally that ended with a Point
Loma fade attempt spinning wide to give
Menlo a 20-13 lead.
Neither team had recorded an ace until late
in the Game 3 when Sellers fired the first of
the match to put Menlo up 22-15. Sianna
Houghton went on to add the only other ace
to force match point. Xu closed out the cham-

crown in program history.

Big names in play as baseball winter meetings open Holliday, Yanks

By Ronald Blum

OXON HILL, Md. Andrew McCutchen,

Chris Sale, Miguel Cabrera and Justin
Verlander could be available for the right price.
As baseball teams gathered for the start of
the winter meetings Monday, star players
were dangled along with the usual crop of
free agents.
When clubs take a dramatic change in
direction or even a subtle one, that type of
player can become available although
often its just talk, New York Mets general
manager Sandy Alderson said Sunday. Well
see what happens.
Having retained outfielder Yoenis Cespedes
last week for the biggest deal thus far this offseason, $110 million over four years,
Alderson is listening to offers for Curtis

Granderson and Jay Bruce.

The other New York
team made a splash with
a free agent Sunday. The
Yankees agreed to a $13
million, one-year contract with outfielder Matt
Holliday, a person familiar with the negotiations
said, speaking on condiAndrew
of anonymity
because the deal had not
yet been announced.
On the eve of the meetings, former
Commissioner Bud Selig was elected to the
Hall of Fame along with John Schuerholz,
architect of the Atlanta Braves teams that won
a record 14 straight division titles.
Only about one-sixth of major league free
agents have agreed to contracts, and the

unsigned group includes closers Aroldis

Chapman, Kenley Jansen and Mark
Melancon; slugger Edwin Encarnacion,
major league home run leader Mark Trumbo
and outfielders Jose Bautista, Ian Desmond
and Dexter Fowler.
Negotiations usually gain pace during the
winter meetings, when nearly all of baseball is
gathered in one hotel. The offseason was
framed last month when general managers met.
Detroit made clear it had shifted into payrollparing mode.
We chose to be transparent, Tigers GM Al
Avila said then. We chose to tell the players
the possibility of things happening.
McCutchen, who revived somewhat in the
late stages of last season, could become a free
agent a year from now. Rather than get only a
draft pick in return then, the Pirates are likely
to be proactive.

Selig, Schuerholz elected to baseball HOF

By Ben Walker

OXON HILL, Md. Bud Selig oversaw baseball during a time of transformation and turmoil
wild cards and a ballpark boom, the cancellation of a World Series and the Steroids Era. For
much of his reign, though, there was one constant: those first-place Atlanta Braves, built by
John Schuerholz.
The former commissioner and the longtime
general manager met up again Sunday, both
elected by an overwhelming margin to the Hall
of Fame.
Even so, Selig didnt see it as a sure thing.
It reminded me of many a ninth inning when
I used to pace around, the one-time owner of the
Milwaukee Brewers said on a conference call.
Schuerholz was picked by all 16 voters on a
veterans committee at the winter meetings in
suburban Washington. Selig was listed 15
The ultimate of honors, Schuerholz said.

It took 12 votes for election, and former player and

manager Lou Piniella was
third with seven. Harold
Baines, Albert Belle, Will
Clark, Orel Hershiser,
Davey Johnson, Mark
McGwire and George
Steinbrenner also were on
the ballot considered by the
Bud Selig
Todays Game Era panel,
and none of them got more than five votes.
Selig became the fifth of 10 commissioners to
reach the Hall. He will be enshrined July 30 in
Cooperstown, NewYork on his 83rd birthday.
His election was sure to draw fire from fans
who link him to some of the games darkest
He called off the 1994 World Series during a
players strike. He was in charge when illegal
steroids left a cloud of performance-enhancing
drugs that still lingers and that might prompt
some to wonder whether power hitters and power

pitchers who benefited from PEDs should now

be welcomed to the Hall, too.
Sometimes in life you have to go through
certain things to maybe solve the problem,
Selig said.
Under Selig, the playoffs expanded from
four teams to eight to 10 and the leagues
were split into three divisions. Video replay
was added to review umpire calls, revenue
sharing was put in place and 20 new stadiums opened across the majors.
We were a sport resistant to change, he said.
And, yes, I believe in those years as commissioner, thats the most change in baseball history.
There was no variance, however, once
Schuerholz took over as GM of the Braves in the
winter of 1990.
Atlanta had never won even a single playoff
game in its 25-season existence before going
from worst-to-first in its first year under
Schuerholz, starting an unprecedented run of 14
straight division titles.

Matt Holliday next month, fits into the
Yankees strategy of signing veterans to short-term deals while pivoting toward a youth movement.
A seven-time All-Star with a .303 career
average, Holliday was drafted by Colorado in
1998, traded to Oakland after the 2008 season and then dealt to St. Louis the following
July. He hit .246 with 20 homers and 62
RBIs in 110 games this year, missing substantial time after his left thumb was broken
when he was hit by a pitch on Aug. 11.
Holliday became a free agent when St.
Louis declined his $17 million option.
He figures to be primarily a designated hitter in a lineup where the projected outfield has
Jacoby Ellsbury in center, Brett Gardner in
left and 24-year-old Aaron Judge in right.
Carlos Beltran, another possibility for the
DH spot, agreed Saturday to a $16 million,
one-year contract with Houston, a deal that
has not yet been announced. Holliday spent
84 games in left field this year, 10 at first
and eight at DH.

Its my third win in super-G here so I

PROP. 58
Continued from page 1
Proposition 227, passed by voters in 1998,
which required parents to sign a waiver
before enrolling their students in special
foreign language support programs.
The previous legislation also mandated
the first month of any bilingual education
program to be taught primarily in English,
which Montes said presented difficulties
during a critical time for students who most
needed additional language support. It limited the amount of foreign language allowed
to be used by bilingual teachers as well, in a
focus on enhancing English literacy.
It created difficulties and challenges for
districts to implement really strong bilingual programs, Montes said of the previous legislation.
While other districts may have been discouraged by the hurdles presented by the

method most recently adopted by the district, as well as the lease-leaseback
approach, as two innovative techniques
school systems will occasionally take to
develop campuses.
I do understand that this is not the traditional design-bid-build approach that most
people are used to seeing, she said.
Since signing the deal, school officials
have started reaching out through a series of
community meetings to gather feedback
from residents regarding the proposal to
redevelop the shopping center.
The final in an initial series of three community meetings was hosted in the district
office Wednesday, Nov. 30, during which
officials expressed a desire to usher the
project through the state approval process



prior mandates, Montes said Redwood City

officials spent the past nearly two decades
beefing up their language programs.
Currently, between 800 and 900 students are
enrolled in bilingual education or dual
immersion programs in which they can
receive a portion of each day receiving lessons in languages other than English, said
She said the commitment to bilingual education has paid dividends, as the district
received widespread recognition for the language support services offered to Redwood
City students. Since the election, Montes
said districts from other communities have
reached out for guidance in establishing
such a model program.
The challenge will be for districts to
ensure they are following best practices,
said Montes.
Though the new acts approval could take
little hold in Redwood City, Montes said
she hoped it would serve students in other
local communities who seek to build more
than solely their English or Spanish skills.

I do believe there is room for improvement in all our districts, she said. I think
that in San Mateo County, we have a big
population of Asian and Latino families,
so we can open the door for students to not
just learn a second language, but a third.
And we need that in San Mateo County
because we have families coming from all
Cheryl Olson, superintendent of the San
Bruno Park Elementary School District,
said she believed the new legislation will be
a tremendous asset in improving the districts programs serving those who do not
speak English at home.
It will be helpful to have additional
options available again, for our English
language learners and how we go about serving them, she said in an email. We will
appreciate the ability to have more flexibility in programs and how we teach.
Chris Ungar, president of the California
School Boards Association, expressed a
similar sentiment in a prepared statement.
Proposition 58 provides greater oppor-

tunities for all California students to learn a

second language that offers social advantages and an enhanced ability to compete in
the global economy and also allows local
school districts to offer language instruction programs that best meet the needs of
their communities, he said.
Montes also claimed the focus of the legislation could lift some of the restrictions
for educators looking to address the most
pressing demands of their students.
Its a very exciting time for the district
and its a great opportunity for all
Californians because they need to be bilingual, she said.
But considering the caliber of language
programs already in place at some local
classrooms, Montes said the quality of education in Redwood City does not stand to be
greatly affected by the new legislation.
Its great for the rest of the state, but for
us it is business as usual, she said. That is
who we are, and what we have done and students have benefited from the opportunity
to learn two languages.

over the next year with an eye to beginning

construction January 2018.
Should all go according to plan, officials
are hopeful to finish the school for approximately 500 students between transitional
kindergarten and fifth-grade in the winter of
Financing for the project is possible under
voter approval last year of Measure X, a
$148 million bond floated to construct new
classrooms and schools accommodating
enrollment growth across the district.
During the most recent community meeting, officials illustrated a commitment to
being a good neighbor and laid out a variety
of traffic mitigations, visual buffers to the
surrounding homes and other design components proposed to address potential concerns from surrounding residents.
Canady lauded the districts outreach effort
and as example of the interest in gathering
support for the project from local residents.
She noted school officials have also met
with Foster City staff, who seemed receptive

to the initiative.
The district is getting a much better sense
of what the citys concerns are and finding
room for collaboration between the district
and the city to ensure the community at large
is served in an appropriate way, she said.
Perez though said he fears the project will
move ahead with demolition before hitting
an obstacle, such as a lawsuit causing
school construction to stall. He cited a frustrated contractor shut out from the bidding
process, neighbor who opposes the
schools development or displaced merchant formerly operating from the shopping center as a potential source of litigation.
The question is whether the school will
be built or if we will be left with a hole in
the ground? Because the method the district
is using, under anyones interpretation with
any legal background, is patently illegal
and has not been vetted by anyone, he
Canady though pointed to a project in

Fremont where developers agreed to build a

new campus to offset student enrollment
growth generated from recently constructed
homes as a recent example of such a deal
being struck.
Locally now there is a similar transaction happening, she said.
For his part, Perez said he supports the
schools construction, but wishes school
officials had approached the process in a
more traditional fashion assuring they
would be protected from the threat of a legal

want it to be done well, correctly and legally so we dont end up with a hole in the
ground and a bunch of angry residents, he
Canady though it is likely too early in the
process to anticipate the variety of challenges potentially facing the project.
There is a lot of bell ringing that, in my
estimation, seems premature, she said.
But that is my own personal opinion.

defender of the countys Private
Defender Program, Digiacinto said hes
not expecting his ofce to be as affected
as it was with Proposition 47. Although
hes not a proponent of using marijuana, he thinks its about time resources
are focused elsewhere.
I think felonies for marijuana is really an unfortunate piece of history from
the past. On a scale of what illicit narcotics are available on the black market,
pot is really the least of our problems, Digiacinto said.
Whats no w l eg al ?
Proposition 64 permits adults 21
years and older to smoke marijuana
recreationally although its primarily restricted to inside private residences
or at a licensed facility such as a pot
cafe. It also allows adults to grow up to
six plants for personal use. The state is
now tasked with creating a new licensing system for commercial operations
thats expected to roll out by 2018.
The law also reduced most criminal
offenses. Many felonies previously
punishable by up to three years behind
bars and $10,000 nes, were reduced to
misdemeanors. For example, illegally
possessing or growing large quantities
of marijuana is now a misdemeanor,
Wagstaffe said.
Most of what is illegal under
Proposition 64, such as a use by a minor
or driving under the inuence, are also
simple misdemeanors typically punishable with small nes or six months in
jail. Smoking in public is likely to
result in a ticket or ne.
There are a few rare cases in which
marijuana-related crimes can now be

Ultimately, Wade said a goal of the center and its programs is to encourage

state or international lines, if a person
already has two prior convictions since
the November 2016 election, and if
environmental laws are violated during
cultivation, Wagstaffe said.
Chang es i n the co urts
For the pending cases, prosecutors
will make a motion to have the marijuana charge dismissed as it comes before
the court. Wagstaffe said he anticipates
it taking several months but occurring
smoothly. He also doubts there are
many currently in custody on marijuanaonly charges. Instead, most who are
behind bars likely have other counts
such as for more illicit drugs like
methamphetamine, thefts or other types
of felony crimes, he said.
Digiacinto agreed its unlikely many
are facing hard time solely for marijuana
I dont think police agencies have
been hell bent on getting the D.A. to
le these charges for a number of years,
unless theres a larger quantity of pot
involved. Its hard for me to imagine
itll have much of an impact,
Digiacinto said. The D.A. has not gone
crazy on us, they prosecuted them, but
after a while I think they were pretty
much in anticipation of where this was
What will take some tweaking is the
process for which those who have convictions can petition the courts and
Digiacinto said his ofce would work
with the district attorney.
Wagstaffe said he cant imagine legalizing marijuana having nearly as much
of an impact as Proposition 47 had, particularly on the courts resources.
Weve dealt with over 4,000
Proposition 47 petitions in two years,
Wagstaffe said, noting Proposition 64
was more limited in scope. We dont
build a marketing firm.

of services available at the center, located in downtown San Bruno at 458 San
Mateo Ave., such as conference rooms,
co-working spaces, workshops, seminars and an opportunity to access the network of venture capitalists, local businesses and professionals who may be
able to offer mentoring or stewardship.
The center has established partnerships with the San Bruno Chamber of
Commerce, along with small business
associations in San Francisco and San
Mateo counties for a portion of the advising services.
Incubator members also stand to access
business development money available
from the programs board of directors,
said Wade, though the investment fund
has yet to be launched.
The resources are only available to students who go through an application
process and pay a fee to enroll, which
Wade said is an effective mechanism to
assure those who participate are commit-

expect to see as many, but well see

some Im sure, and that means the court
has to deal with it.
Cri mes may co nti nue
What could prove to be a larger shift
to those working in the courts or law
enforcement is how to prove marijuanarelated crimes occurred.
Wagstaffe pointed to the recent cases
of maritime marijuana smuggling when
panga boats have been found off the San
Mateo County coast and federal ofcials
have pointed to Mexican drug cartels as
the culprit.
Based on the new law, unless theres a
way to prove the marijuana came from
outside California, the smuggling is
just a simple misdemeanor, Wagstaffe
said. Taking lessons from Colorado,
which legalized pot in 2012, he noted
there is still a large opportunity for a
black market industry and those looking to avoid the new tax regulations
which include a minimum 15 percent
sales tax.
Wagstaffe said hes also concerned
about an uptick in those driving under
the inuence of marijuana, for which
there is currently no test to prove.
Although Proposition 64 does set aside
funds for creating such a test, in the
meantime Wagstaffe urged police departments to have more ofcers undergo
specialty training to determine when
someones driving high.
Although Wagstaffe, the prosecutor,
and Digiacinto, the defender, are often at
opposite ends, both agreed adults who
choose to smoke should remain mindful
of the laws limits.
Everybody should follow the law and
do it legally, Wagstaffe said. But
because theres the prot motive
involved and the danger has been
reduced to a misdemeanor, I think law
enforcement will continue to have plenty of activity in the eld.
ted to their endeavor.
Members are asked to spend between
$150 per month for a virtual membership
which grants access to programs but no
office space to $450 monthly for unlimited access to resources along with two
consulting appointments.
Wade said the program was borne from
a desire among many students at Skyline
College to build their talents for growing
a small business into a viable and successful company and interest for the
services has jumped since the incubator
recently launched.
It has encouraged a lot of Skyline students, she said.
For his part, Lin said he is hopeful his
message resonates by encouraging students to overcome the potential fears
associated with taking the risks which
may initially seem intimidating but
stand to benefit a companys growth.
Most people are too scared to talk to
strangers, but that is when the most
interesting things happen, he said.

No more room for the dead as Aleppo is crushed

By Sarah El Deeb

BEIRUT The old Aleppo cemetery filled

up a year ago. The new one filled up last
week. Now the dead are left in the besieged
enclaves streets, buried in backyards and
overwhelming the morgues.
Medical officials secured yet another plot
for the dead. But they say they have no way to
dig graves with government troops now
crashing into opposition-held eastern
Aleppo, shelling civilians as they flee and
forcing thousands to squeeze into a chaotic,
devastated and shrinking pocket of neighborhoods.
We have no more room, said Mohammed
Abu Jaafar, the head of the local forensic
authority. His department is so overwhelmed, the staff registering the dead pleaded with him not to take any more bodies.
Even if I were to consider mass burials, I
dont have the machines to do the digging,
he said in a telephone interview.
Dignity in death has been lost as the
rebel-held enclave that has held out for

four years collapses.

For two weeks, government forces bombarded the area, killing more than 310 civilians, including 42 children, and up to 220
opposition fighters, according to the
Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. Then
last weekend, ground troops stormed into
the 17-square-mile (45 square kilometer)
enclave, captured half of it and advanced on
the rest.
U.N Emergency Relief Coordinator
Stephen OBrien pleaded Wednesday for
access to eastern Aleppo, home to some
275,000, before it becomes one giant
In some ways, it already has. Bodies have
been left to rot on the streets. Ambulances
and rescue vehicles cant reach them because
they have been targeted or because fuel has
run out. As troops close in, there are now
more, multiple front lines all too dangerous
to approach.
Residents of a southern neighborhood
close to a government advance only learned
that a body was lying in the ditches when a
cat started eating at the corpse.

Carter: US, partners should

stay in Iraq after IS defeat
By Robert Burns

SIMI VALLEY The American military,

along with its international partners, will
need to remain in Iraq even after the expected defeat of the Islamic State group,
Defense Secretary Ash Carter said Saturday.
Carter said the U.S. and its coalition
partners must not stop after completing
the current campaign to expel IS from

He said the militants are on a path to lasting defeat.

But there will still be much more to do
after that to make sure that, once defeated,
ISIL stays defeated, he said, using an alternative acronym for the Islamic State group.
Well need to continue to counter foreign
ghters trying to escape and ISILs
attempts to relocate or reinvent itself. To
do so, not only the United States but our
coalition must endure and remain engaged
