Officials aim to better manage storm runoff
County looks to reduce pollution, capture more water
By Samantha Weigel

As welcomed rains drench the Bay
Area this week, San Mateo County residents are being asked to weigh in on
how communities should reduce pollution and alleviate flooding by finding
more sustainable ways to manage
Plus, between the long-standing
drought and forecasted population
growth, conservationists are wondering whether stormwater could be used as
a resource instead of superfluous waste.

The state mandates the nine Bay Area
counties curb the amount of harmful
pollutants allowed to contaminate
local waterways, which led to plans
outlining more sustainable methods of
handling stormwater. This week and
next, the public is invited to community forums covering how San Mateo
County intends to improve its systems, and offer comment on the draft

Governments, or C/CAG, established
the Flows to Bay Program to help local

“Managing it must be different than
we have done in the past where we’re
treating it as waste and trying to get it
out of urban areas as fast as possible,”
said C/CAG engineer Matt Fabry.

Female rock group
performs depth of
Led Zeppelin’s music

Steph Paynes is on a mission to
show the world that the future of guitarplaying is in women’s hands.
As guitarist and band leader for the
all-girls rock group Lez Zeppelin,
Paynes has chosen what she considers

revered rock group Led Zeppelin — to
prove it.
She and three other female rock musicians will make this statement in
Redwood City this week, performing
Led Zeppelin’s songs at Club Fox

also very powerful,” she said. “Where

music’s complexity and beauty.

burglarizing San Mateo men
Police allege suspect has history of sexual battery

A San Mateo man being investigated for
an alleged sexual battery at a gym six
months ago was arrested Monday for burglarizing multiple homes and groping two
more men, according to police.
Ismael Espinoza-Vasquez, 24, violently
resisted arrest after he was contacted by
police who received multiple calls about a
man breaking into homes around 6:30 a.m.
near North Kingston Street and North
Bayshore Boulevard, according to San
Mateo police.
Espinoza-Vasquez allegedly broke into
several apartments in a building, as well as
nearby duplexes before officers arrived and
caught him exiting a resident’s window.
Following a brief pursuit on foot, he was
taken into custody and determined to have
been known by law enforcement, according
to police.
A further investigation revealed that at
two separate locations, Espinoza-Vasquez
grabbed two male victims’ genitals and
stole property from their homes, according
to police. He also stole various items such
as money and electronics from other homes
in the North Shoreview neighborhood. All
of the property was recovered either on the
suspect or nearby, according to police.

Road in San Mateo, according to police.
A misdemeanor case was submitted to
prosecutors who said it will be revived and
looked at again Wednesday.

U.S. Rep. Becerra nominated

SACRAMENTO — Gov. Jerry Brown on
Tuesday nominated Xavier Becerra to be
California’s next attorney general, beginning what is likely to be a smooth confirmation for the longtime Democratic congressman who has taken a combative stance
against President-elect Donald Trump.
The state Legislature will have 90 days to

same day Kamala Harris resigned from the
post to take her seat in the U.S. Senate. She

campaign, has represented parts of Los

Margaret B. Buting
July 11, 1923 – December 30, 2016
Margaret Bateman Buting, 93, passed away peacefully
on December 30, 2016 in Redwood City, California. A
funeral mass will be held at 11 AM on January 6, 2017 at
St. Bartholomew Catholic Church, 300 Alameda de Las
Pulgas , San Mateo, CA.
Margaret Mary Bateman was born July 11, 1923 in New
Bern, NC and moved to West Baden, IN in 1930. She
graduated valedictorian of the West Baden High School
class of 1941, then attended St. Mary of the Woods
college in Terre Haute, IN for two years before finishing her undergraduate degree at St.
Louis University.
Margaret then pursued and earned a masters degree at Purdue University, where she met
the love of her life, Walter Eugene Buting. They married June 24, 1950 and moved to
Indianapolis to begin their life together, which included 50 years of marriage, 7 children,
6 grandchildren and countless friends made through the many years in both Indianapolis
and the SF Bay Area, where they moved in 1985 when Walter decided to join a budding
biotech company--Genentech.
Those who met Margaret often said they felt an instant kinship with her. She loved to
strike up a conversation with anyone and made friends easily. Margaret had an unending
love and loyalty to her family, both the family she grew up around in Indiana and the large
contingent of children and grandchildren to whom she and Walter dedicated their life.
Margaret was predeceased in life by her parents, her brother James, husband Walter, and
son Joseph. She is survived by her children: Thomas, John, Jerome (Kathleen Stilling),
Marianne Murphy (Terry), Michael (Rina Lintag), and Rosemary Jorde (Bjorn). Margaret
was also a beloved grandmother to Meghan and Colleen Murphy, Stephen and Grace
Buting, and Christopher and Sarah Buting.
Margaret was a generous supporter of many faith-based, educational, arts and
environmental conservation organizations. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that
contributions may be made in her memory to a charity of your choice.

Kelly said in a message on Twitter
on Tuesday.
Rupert Murdoch, executive chairman of Fox, said that “we thank
Megyn Kelly for her 12 years of
contributions to Fox News. We
hope she enjoys tremendous success in her career and wish her and
her family all the best.”
Kelly became one of Fox’s
hottest properties and a flashpoint
in the presidential campaign after
Trump objected to her questioning
in the first Republican presidential
debate a year and a half ago. He
tweeted angry messages about her
and boycotted another Fox debate
after the network refused to replace
her as one of the debate moderators.
She also became a central figure
in the downfall of former Fox News
chief Roger Ailes, telling in-house
investigators of inappropriate conduct by Ailes that supported women
who had made similar accusations.
Details about Kelly’s new jobs at
NBC will be revealed in upcoming
months, said Andrew Lack, chairman of the NBC Universal News

Fox News star who’s had a contentious
President-elect Donald Trump, said
Tuesday that she’s leaving the network for NBC News, where she will
host a daytime talk show and a
weekend newsmagazine, as well as
contribute to breaking news coverage.
NBC News made the announcement Tuesday, ending months of
speculation over whether she would
re-up with Fox, where she has flourished while suffering bruised feelings in recent months, or start a
new chapter in her career. Her contract with Fox expires this summer.

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump
says he is confident North Korea
won’t develop a nuclear-tipped
missile that could strike the
United States. But his options for
stopping the reclusive communist
country are slim: diplomacy that
would reward Pyongyang, sanctions which haven’t worked, and
military action that no one wants.
For more than two decades,
Republican and Democratic administrations have tried carrots and
sticks to steer North Korea away
from nuclear weapons. Each has
failed. And as Trump prepares to
take office Jan. 20, the stakes are
Pyongyang may already be able
to arm short-range and mid-range
missiles with atomic warheads,
threatening U. S. allies South
Korea and Japan, and American
forces in each country. On Sunday,
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un
said preparations for launching an
intercontinental ballistic missile
“reached the final stage.”
Trump tweeted the following
day: “It won’t happen!”
Some experts believe the North
is likely to have the capability to
strike the U.S. mainland before
Trump’s four-year term is up.
The president-elect has given
conflicting signals about what he
plans to do, while stressing that
China, North Korea’s traditional
ally, must exert greater pressure on
its unpredictable neighbor.
Some of his options:

Three U. S. administrations,

Retreating after
tweet, GOP won’t
gut ethics office
By Erica Werner

WASHINGTON — The new GOP era in
Washington got off to a messy start
Tuesday as House Republicans, under pressure from President-elect Donald Trump,
abruptly dropped plans to gut an independent congressional ethics board.
The dizzying about-face came as lawmakers convened for the first day of the
115th Congress, an occasion normally
reserved for pomp and ceremony under the
Republicans found themselves under
attack not only from Democrats but from
their new president, over their secretive
move Monday to neuter the independent
Office of Congressional Ethics and place
it under lawmakers’ control.
GOP leaders scrambled to contain the
damage, and within hours of Trump registering his criticism on Twitter, they called
an emergency meeting where House
Republicans voted without opposition to
undo the change.
The episode, coming even before the
new Congress was convened and lawmakers were sworn in, was a powerful illustration of the sway Trump may hold over his
party in a Washington that will be fully
under Republican control for the first time
in a decade. GOP lawmakers who’ve felt
unfairly targeted by the ethics office had
defied their own leaders with their initial
vote to neuter the body, but once Trump
weighed in they backpedaled immediately.
“With all that Congress has to work on,
do they really have to make the weakening
of the Independent Ethics Watchdog, as
unfair as it may be, their number one act and
priority,” Trump had asked over Twitter

Tuesday morning, in an objection that
appeared focused more on timing than on
substance. Trump, who will take office in a
little over two weeks, said the focus should
be on tax reform and health care, and he
included the hash-tag (hash)DTS, for “Drain
the Swamp, ” his oft-repeated campaign
promise to bring change to Washington.
Democrats and even many Republicans
were quick to point out that the lawmakers’ plans for their ethics watchdog flew in
the face of that notion. The measure was
part of a GOP-written rules package that
looked like it could fail after Trump registered his objections amid a public outcry
from good government activists. The
stripped-down package was approved late
Tuesday by the House, 234-193.
“We were elected on a promise to drain
the swamp, and starting the session by
relaxing ethics rules is a very bad start,”
said GOP Rep. Tom McClintock of
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy
mentioned Trump’s opposition in the
emergency meeting, and some lawmakers
said it had a powerful effect.
“I do believe when President-elect
Trump tweeted out...members got calls,”
said Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Pa. Trump spoke
by phone with House Speaker Paul Ryan
on Tuesday after the ethics change was
The Office of Congressional Ethics was
created in 2008 after several bribery and
corruption cases in the House, but lawmakers of both parties have groused about
the way it operates.
Lawmakers were especially incensed by
an investigation of members of Congress
from both parties who went on a 2013 trip
to Azerbaijan paid for by that country’s


House Speaker Paul Ryan holds the gavel upon being re-elected speaker in the House chamber
on the first day of the new session of Congress.
government. Lawmakers said after the
investigation was made public in 2015
that they had no idea the trip was paid for
by the government, and the House Ethics
Committee ultimately cleared them.
Once the ethics controversy was dispensed with, Congress returned to the ceremonial business. As set out in the
Constitution, both chambers gaveled in at
noon, and as storm clouds threatened outside, the halls of the Capitol filled with
lawmakers’ children, friends and spouses
on hand to witness the procedures. The day
had a festive feel of the first day back at
school, as new arrivals roamed the halls
with old hands, exchanging greetings and
taking in the day.
In the Senate, seven new members joined
those who won re-election, taking the oath
of office administered by Vice President
Joe Biden. The Senate will be controlled
52-48 by the GOP and includes two new
Republicans and five new Democrats. They
include Illinois’ Tammy Duckworth, a double-amputee Iraq war vet, who walked to
the dais and stood for the oath.
Biden remains president of the Senate
until Trump becomes president Jan. 20;
then Vice President-elect Mike Pence will
take over.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer
of New York set battle lines, saying

Democrats will hold Trump to his promises to create jobs, raise incomes and protect Americans but will “fight him tooth
and nail when he appeals to the baser
instincts that diminish America and its
Issues confronting America are complex, he said, and “we cannot tweet them
In the House, lawmakers easily re-elected Ryan, of Wisconsin, as their speaker.
The House will number 241 Republicans
and 194 Democrats; among the members
are 52 freshmen.
Behind the ceremony was a sense of
anticipation, as Republicans prepare an
ambitious agenda, beginning with dismantling President Barack Obama’s health
care law. The GOP directed Senate committees to produce repeal legislation by Jan.
27 while debate begins this week.
But there was uncertainty, too, as
Republicans confront an untested new
president who has opposed fundamental
elements of GOP orthodoxy and may exercise his influence in unpredictable ways,
as illustrated with the ethics kerfuffle.
“The people have given us unified government, and it wasn’t because they were
feeling generous, it’s because they wanted
results,” Ryan said. “How could we live
with ourselves if we let them down?”

U.S. construction spending at highest level in 10 years

WASHINGTON — U. S. builders
boosted spending on construction
projects for a second straight month in
November, pushing activity to the
highest level in more than a decade.
Construction spending rose 0.9 percent in November after a 0.6 percent
increase in October, the Commerce
Department reported Tuesday.
The increase reflected solid gains in
home construction, nonresidential

building and government construction
The gains in all three categories
pushed total construction to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $1.18 trillion, the highest point since April
2006 when a housing boom fueled
Economists believe construction
will continue to show gains in 2017,
reflecting a strong job market with
unemployment at the lowest point in
nine years.

Financial markets sent stock prices
to record highs following the election
of Donald Trump, reflecting in part
enthusiasm over his vows to increase
spending on projects to repair and
replace the country’s aging infrastructure.
For November, the 1 percent rise in
residential construction reflected a 1.8
percent rise in single-family construction which offset a 2.7 percent drop in
the smaller and more volatile apartment construction sector.

“This is, no doubt, an attempt
by Daesh to divert attention from
their losses in Mosul and, unfortunately, it is the innocent civilians who are paying the price,”
Jan Kubis, the special representative of the U.N. Secretary-General
for Iraq, said in the statement.
The group was also behind
Monday’s suicide bombing in a
commercial area in eastern
Baghdad, which killed 41 people
and wounding 64 others. Several
other attacks, including one carried out by five suicide bombers
against two police stations in the
city of Samarra north of Baghdad,
killed at least 27 people and
wounded 89.
Backed by the U.S.-led international coalition, Iraqi government troops and paramilitary
forces launched the campaign in
mid-October to dislodge IS from
Mosul — Iraq’s second-largest
city and the last major IS urban
bastion in the country.
Unlike other reports, last
month’s report didn’t include
casualties among security forces.
The U. N. came under criticism
from the Iraqi military last month
after reporting that nearly 2,000
members of the Iraqi forces had
been killed in November. The
Iraqi government has not publicized the casualty figures for government troops and paramilitary
forces fighting in Mosul and elsewhere in northern Iraq.

Annotated version of Hitler’s
‘Mein Kampf’ a hit in Germany
BERLIN — An annotated edition of “Mein Kampf,” Adolf
Hitler’s notorious manifesto, has become a non-fiction
best-seller in Germany. The publisher said Tuesday that a
sixth print run will go on sale later this month.
Some 85,000 copies of the book have been sold since it
was first published a year ago, according to the Munichbased Institute for Contemporary History. The publisher
spent years adding comments to Hitler’s original text in an
effort to highlight his propaganda and mistakes.
The institute said in late 2015 that it planned an initial
print run of up to 4,000 copies and wasn’t sure whether
more would be printed. In April, however, the book topped
the weekly Der Spiegel’s non-fiction best-seller list.
The bulky two-volume edition, titled “Hitler, Mein
Kampf: A Critical Edition,” weighs in at 1,948 pages and
costs a hefty 59 euros ($62). It was the first version to be
published in Germany since the end of World War II.
Before the copyright on “Mein Kampf held by Bavaria’s
state finance ministry expired at the end of 2015, the ministry had used it prevent the publication of new editions in
the country.
Despite its incendiary and anti-Semitic content, the book
wasn’t actually banned in Germany and could be found
online, in secondhand bookshops and in libraries.
The Institute for Contemporary History said fears that the
new publication might help make Hitler’s ideology socially acceptable had proven unfounded.

Israeli leader denies
wrongdoing after police grilling
JERUSALEM — Israel’s prime minister is denying
wrongdoing a day after he was questioned by police for
more than three hours over corruption allegations.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wrote on Twitter
Tuesday that “there won’t be anything because there is
nothing,” and decried “years of daily persecution against
me and my family.”
Police investigators grilled Netanyahu on Monday
evening at his official residence over suspicions that he
improperly accepted gifts from wealthy supporters.
Israel’s Channel 2 TV has said that Netanyahu accepted
“favors” from businessmen in Israel and abroad and that he
is the central suspect in a second investigation that also
involves family members.
Netanyahu has portrayed the investigation as a witch
hunt by a hostile media.

Water crisis in Syrian
capital as government
attacks nearby valley
By Philip Issa

BEIRUT — Residents of Damascus are
scrambling for clean water after the government attacked rebels holding the city’s main
source in a nearby valley, leading to an accidental outage that has stretched on for nearly
two weeks.
The cut-off is a major challenge to the government’s effort throughout the nearly 6-yearold civil war to keep the capital as insulated as
possible from the effects of the conflict tearing apart much of the country.
“I have stopped cleaning the house, washing dishes or clothes. We no longer take
showers,” said Mona Maqssoud, a 50-year-old
resident of Damascus. She said residents have
relied on water tankers that come by occasionally and give 20 liters (5 gallons) of
water to each house, but that hasn’t been
“We begged the drivers (to return) to our
neighborhood, but they refused.”
The cut-off, since Dec. 22, is the longest
Damascus has seen, say residents, who are
accustomed to intermittent outages.
The opposition has long controlled Wadi
Barada, the valley northwest of Damascus

through which the river of the same name
flows to the capital. The Barada River and its
source, the Ain al-Fijeh spring, supply 70
percent of the water for Damascus and its environs.
The government and the opposition had
previously had an understanding to keep water
services running. But that modus vivendi
ended when forces of President Bashar Assad
and his allies, the Lebanon Hezbollah guerrilla force, attacked the valley, home to some
100,000 people.
The two sides blame each other for the cutoff.

Video shows man believed to be nightclub attacker in Turkey

Suspected gunman

ISTANBUL — An eerie video emerged
Tuesday of a man believed to be the attacker who killed 39 people in a mass shooting
at a nightclub, showing him taking a selfie
as he silently toured Istanbul’s most
famous square.
The camera never leaves the man’s
unsmiling face as he walked through
Taksim Square during the 44-second clip
that was broadcast on state-run Anadolu television and other Turkish media.
It wasn’t immediately clear if the video
was made before or after the New Year’s
massacre at the Reina nightclub, or how it
was obtained. The gunman, who hasn’t

been publicly identified, is still at large.
On Monday, the Islamic State group
claimed responsibility for the attack,
which also wounded nearly 70 people. The
extremists said a “soldier of the caliphate”
had carried out the mass shooting to avenge
Turkish military operations against IS in
northern Syria.
Funerals began Tuesday in Jordan,

most of them tourists. Mourners wept for

Hundreds of people attended funerals for
two of three Lebanese victims. One of

them, 26-year-old fitness instructor Elias
Wardini, was recently engaged to be married. His family and friends set off fireworks as his white coffin arrived at a church
in Beirut.
At least 14 people have been detained in
connection with the attack, including two
foreigners stopped Tuesday at the international terminal of Istanbul’s Ataturk
Airport after police checked their cellphones and luggage, according to Anadolu.
The Hurriyet newspaper said a woman
identified by Turkish media as the wife of
the suspect has told police she didn’t know
her husband was a member of the Islamic
State group.
The woman was detained in the central
town of Konya as part of the investigation.
Neither she nor her husband has been identified. Hurriyet reported in its online edition that the woman said she learned about
the attack on TV and told police she didn’t
know her husband harbored “sympathies”
toward IS.

A New Year’s resolution?

‘In jeopardy’ rings true

Nuclear capabilities

This is to all our friends in the news
media like CBS, CNN, ABC and NBC.
What happened to all the black men
being shot by white police officers
that you were reporting on earlier this
year? Remember? It was an epidemic
that was out of control. Has it all
stopped now? If so, than why? Or, is
it the truth that you just got your fill
of it, and it didn’t make good press
So have you given up on it and are
looking for some more sensational
stories to tell? All except the true

Dorothy Dimitre’s Dec. 28 column
“In jeopardy” is the most refreshing
and insightful analysis I have read
about the Obama/Trump dichotomy.
While it has been said that for a
democracy to work, an educated citizenry is required, poorly informed
and gullible voters made Presidentelect Donald Trump possible. The
same people who swallow Trump’s
lies and empty, often mutually
exclusive and impossible, promises,
seem basically to be the same who
blindly deny President Obama’s
unquestionable accomplishments.
While Obama has spent two terms
getting us back on track after
George W. Bush’s disastrous administration, domestically as well as
internationally, Donald Trump has
already dedicated himself to destroy
as much as possible of his predecessor’s work — while already taking
personal credit for the recent new
high of the stock market.
It took Democratic administrations to clean up after both Bushs’
Republican administrations, but will
it be possible at all to clean up after
what Trump has promised to do? I’m
afraid Mrs. Dimitre is dead right in
her dire prediction of what even a
single Trump term will lead to.

I would like to take some time and
thank our president-elect for his
christmas gift to the citizens of
American and the world.
According to Trump, peace will
come when we expand and strengthen
our nuclear capabilities. Instead of
peace on Earth, the new saying is let
there be an arms race we will match
them at every pass and outlast them
I guess instead of trying to end
nuclear war, we will threaten the
world by saying ours is bigger than

Bogus Burlingame study
The article “Mayor: Money needed
for improved facilities” in the Dec.
28 edition of the Daily Journal is
misleading. It gives the impression
that a poll commissioned by the
Burlingame City Council found that
Burlingame residents are enamored
with the need for a new recreation
center and the upgrading of City Hall
to the point that 62 percent are in
favor of putting a tax or bond measure
on a future ballot.
This is a classic manipulation and
distortion of information.
The “Community Priority Study”
was a 10-day telephone and online
survey that specifically targeted residents that were likely voters. The
number of residents who responded
was very small. How small? The 62
percent quoted in the article represents but 174 residents out of a population of over 28,000.
Furthermore, the article failed to
point out that a new recreation center
and improvements to City Hall were
not priority items; number one was
providing a variety of housing for all
ages, followed by additional parking
downtown and improving the
Broadway business district.
Shouldn’t the City Council strive to
represent all constituents, not just
those who are “likely voters?”  Why
was the focus so narrow and why the
singular concern for City Hall when
thousands of Burlingame residents
live in seismically unsafe soft story
This was a very poor study and not
worthy of front page coverage. By
the way, on Dec. 13, I asked a member of the Burlingame City Council
how much the study cost and have yet
to receive an answer.

Who is hacking who?
Russia annexes Georgia, Crimea
and other parts of Ukraine. Our
administration does nothing. Russia
might have hacked the Democratic
Party’s and John Podesta’s email and
we kick out 35 Russian diplomats?
We hack the Russians, they hack
us, it’s called espionage. Almost all
nations large and small engage in
espionage. The degree of sophistication depends on the nation. The
Russians, or someone else, may
have hacked Hillary’s illegal email
server and Podesta’s email.
Are we saying that the content of
John Podesta’s email cost Hillary
Clinton the presidency?
Cyber security is a very serious
issue. Apparently there is no one
agency responsible for cyber security. Maybe that makes us vulnerable?
In my opinion the answer is yes.
Who is watching the store?

Where do we
go from here?


wrote the following column for another newspaper
after the midterm election in November 2002. Déjà vu?

“That millions share the same form of mental pathology
does not make these people sane.” — Erich Fromm.
I don’t want to lose faith in humanity — really I don’t.
But when I saw the results of the midterm election, the mercury in my faith in humanity thermometer dropped precipitously low. At least for a while there was a bit of hope —
hope that in the Senate at least, Democrats would remain in
the majority. But it didn’t happen. And now I am terribly
concerned that George W. and his buddies that manipulate
his strings feel an even greater mandate to carry on in their
inimitable way — screwing the poor and middle class, pandering to the wealthy and corporate interests, whittling
away at our rights, disregarding how their actions affect the
environment and, most frightening, getting us involved in
a war with Iraq and whatever repercussions go along with it.
It is truly astounding that
there are so many people in
the United States who don’t
seem to have a clue as to
what encouraging the dominant Republicans to have
their way could portend. Not
that the Democrats are gems
of astuteness, but at least
there might have been some
checks and balances on the
Republicans if one of the
houses had seen a
Democratic majority. Where
were the mindful Democrats
when we needed them most?
Why weren’t they standing
up to the Republicans, offering us a strong, feasible alternative? 
What is lacking, it seems, among a lot of American voters
and politicians in Washington is vision. How is it that so
many people are so self-involved, so obsessed with their
special interests that they cannot or will not open their
minds and hearts enough to see the fallacy of the Republican
agenda? What other nation is exploiting the world like we
are — racing along the road to disaster at an ever-escalating
rate and in the process, increasing depriving its citizens of
what they need most — the kind of spiritual base that leads
to a fulfilling and happy life? In spite of reports that a large
majority of people in the United States attend religious
services and/or profess belief in some deity, this culture
lacks reverence for the qualities that improve and enhance
our humanity. 
It seems that few raise their heads above the material clutter and the frantic daily routine necessary to maintain such a
lifestyle. Many are mesmerized by the mall, the chat room,
their fitness, diet and beauty routines, the glitter of celebrities and a hail-fellow-well-met demeanor of a glib, but mentally challenged president who, along with his cartel and a
cooperative Congress, could very well bring about one of
the darkest eras in our history.
Among other disastrous results we can look forward to —
more defilement of our Earth in the name of “progress.”
Human beings and the environment will be increasingly
poisoned because of an ever-greater lack of supervision of
industry and corporate production practices. Add increased
population growth in a world that is, in many areas, unable
to feed its citizens adequately — in part because of our
refusal to join other countries in promoting birth control.
Get ready for longer work hours and fewer benefits for
those who are employed, and greater struggles for those who
lose their jobs. Prepare for more economic chaos in our
country and a great many of our citizens go deeper into debt
as the gap between rich and poor increases. The “Great
American Dream” has, in many ways, become an “American
Nightmare.” And the “American Way,” as it has evolved, has
turned many into an arrogant, self-serving bunch of materialists — not a pretty picture if you have any concern for the
future of our grandchildren.
What good is it to have big houses but broken homes;
high incomes but low morale; to demand our rights but lose
civility; to make a good living but fail to create a rewarding
life; to emphasize self-interest but long for connection; to
celebrate greed but yearn for purpose. As a culture, we have
lost sight of what is truly important in life. But don’t wait
for the leaders of the Republican monopoly to come to our
rescue. They use their rigid religious-right agenda to further
whatever issue suits their purposes. They are fixated on more
and more oil to fuel our SUVs. They advise us to do our patriotic duty by frequenting the malls even when terrorism
strikes. The rich must get richer and heaven forbid that we
should interfere with corporate interests.
Martin Luther King once said: “This may well be
mankind’s last chance to choose between chaos and community.” I’m afraid we’ve had it and we’ve blown it. 
Now, in 2017, here we go again — on an even more dangerous and threatening route.

Indexes ring in new year with gains
By Marley Jay



NEW YORK — U.S. stocks
broke a three-day losing streak
Tuesday and ushered in the new
year with broad gains. Health care
stocks, which struggled for most
of last year, climbed.
Stocks started the day with a
surge as the Dow Jones industrial
average rose 175 points in the
first hour of trading. Bond yields
jumped, which took bank stocks
higher. The price of oil also rose
early on, but it began slipping
after 10 a.m. Investors started buying again late in the day, however,

Ford cancels plan to build new
Mexican plant, adds U.S. jobs
By Dee-Ann Durbin
and Tom Krisher

FLAT ROCK, Mich. — The auto
industry’s relationship with Presidentelect Donald Trump took a dramatic
turn Tuesday as Ford Motor Co. decided
to shift investment dollars targeted for
Mexico to the U. S. , while Trump
threatened General Motors with a tax
on some imported small cars.
Ford is canceling plans to build a
new $1.6 billion factory in San Luis
Potosi, Mexico, and will instead
invest some of that money in a U.S.
factory that will build new electric and
autonomous vehicles.
Ford said last spring it would move
production of the Ford Focus small car
to the new plant from Michigan.
Trump repeatedly criticized the plan,
and Ford was among the companies he
threatened to hit with a 35 percent tariff on products made in Mexico and
exported to the U.S.
Trump added General Motors to that
group Tuesday, saying in a tweet that
the Cruze small cars GM makes in
Mexico and sends to U.S. dealers could
face “a big border tax!”
Ford CEO Mark Fields said Tuesday
that market forces dictated Ford’s decision not to build the San Luis Potosi
plant. Low gas prices and low interest
rates have been hammering small-car
sales. U.S. sales of the Focus were
down 17 percent through November;
by contrast, sales of Ford’s biggest
SUV, the Expedition, were up 46 percent.
Ford will still move production of
the Focus to Mexico, but it will go to
an existing plant in Hermosillo that
makes midsize cars. Ford will hire


Ford Motor Co. president and CEO Mark Fields makes a major announcement at
the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Flat Rock, Mich.
around 200 workers in Hermosillo to
expand production there. The Wayne,
Michigan, plant that currently makes
the Focus will get two new products
next year, preserving jobs at the facility.
Fields said Ford will invest $700
million in the Flat Rock plant to make
hybrid, electric and autonomous vehicles. It will also hire around 700 workers starting in 2018. In announcing
the Michigan expansion, Fields noted
Trump’s promise to make the U.S.
more competitive by lowering taxes
and easing regulations.
“This is a vote of confidence for
President-elect Trump and some of the
policies he may be pursuing,” Fields
said at the company’s plant in Flat
Workers lined up on the factory floor
cheered the news. United Auto Workers
Vice President Jimmy Settles, the

union’s chief negotiator for Ford, told
workers he cried when he heard about
the investment. Flat Rock, which
employs around 3,200 people, was
threatened with closure during the
recession. More recently, it has seen
temporary layoffs because of slowing
sales of one of its products, the Ford
Mustang. The plant also makes the
Lincoln Continental.
Fields said Ford Executive Chairman
Bill Ford called Trump Tuesday morning to tell him the news. Fields called
Vice President-elect Mike Pence. The
company also contacted the Mexican
government, which issued a statement
regretting Ford’s decision.
“The jobs created in Mexico have
contributed to maintaining manufacturing jobs in the United States which
otherwise would have disappeared in
the face of Asian competition,” the
Mexico Economy Department said.

Raiders ready to ride with Cook in playoffs
By Josh Dubow

better,” rookie running back Jalen Richard
said Tuesday. “It really shows he’s always been
prepared for this moment and his moment
finally came. I look forward to seeing him out
there Saturday and playing well.”
The Raiders held a walkthrough off-site on
Tuesday that was not open to the media and do
not have to issue a participation report about
who is healthy enough to practice until
Cook showed some positive signs when he
replaced McGloin in Sunday’s 24-6 loss at
Denver that cost the Raiders a chance at the
division title and a first-round bye. Cook completed 14 of 21 passes for 150 yards and a 32-

yard touchdown to Amari Cooper. He did turn
over the ball twice with a fumble and interception. But he moved the offense much more
effectively than McGloin did with just 21 yards
passing on 11 attempts.
“I think he did a pretty good job, especially
to come in having not played all year,” Cooper
said. “He did a really nice job going through
his reads, stepping up in the pocket and making good throws.”
Cook had a successful college career at
Michigan State, but there were questions heading into the draft about his leadership because

Scots stuff Westmoor

Westmoor boys
outrun Carlmont

By Nathan Mollat



ALAMEDA — While the Oakland Raiders are
giving no official word who will start at quarterback for their first playoff game in 14 years,
the players are ready to go into the postseason
behind rookie Connor Cook.
With Pro Bowler Derek Carr out with a broken leg and backup Matt McGloin nursing a
shoulder injury that could make it tough for
him to practice enough before Saturday’s game
at Houston, Cook looks like he will get the
chance. He would become the first quarterback

ever to make his first career
start in the postseason.
Despite appearing in
just one game as a rookie,
the Raiders (12-4) say
Cook showed some “swagger” when he replaced
McGloin in the second
quarter on Sunday in
Connor Cook Denver, and has their confidence heading into the
game against the Texans (9-7) because of what
they’ve seen all year.
“Every day after practice Connor’s been out
there working on his throws and trying to get

With a week left before the start of
Peninsula Athletic League play, teams are
beginning to fine-tune their game to prepare
for the next leg of the 2016-17 season.
But even after a month of non-league
games, not every team is on the same level.
The Carlmont girls’ basketball team looks
to be ready for the grind of league play,
while visiting Westmoor is still trying to
figure things out, despite a 7-3 record.
Both were on display as the Scots used a
suffocating defense and aggressive play on
both ends, holding the Rams to single-digit
scoring in all four quarters in a 62-33 rout.
Westmoor was at a severe disadvantage,
however, playing without its starting backcourt of senior Sabrina Tan and sophomore
Vanessa Lee. That was crucial as the Rams
struggled with Carlmont full-court trapping
“That was a big difference, ” said
Westmoor coach John Calonico. “I knew
that coming in. I just wanted the girls to
The way Carlmont was pressing and
defending, it’s questionable if the Rams,
even at full strength, had enough to keep up
with the Scots. While Carlmont didn’t
exactly set the nets on fire — the Scots connected on just 20 of 61 shots — its defense
picked up the slack. Led by Alexa Bayangos’
five steals, the Scots came up with 20 steals,
including 14 in the first half alone. In addition, Westmoor threw the ball away 13 more
times to give it 23 empty possessions for
the game.
“We came out and played aggressively
from the get-go,” said Carlmont coach Dan
Mori. “Our size and speed in our press got us
some easy baskets.”
And this year, the Scots should have plenty of opportunities for easy baskets because
their offense is so diverse. Bayangos, who
led the team in scoring last season, has a lot
more help this season. She finished with
only five points, but got plenty of support
from sophomore Ashley Trierweiler, who

Carlmont’s Ashley Trierweiler shoots over a Westmoor defender for two of her team-high 13
points in the Scots’ 62-33 win over the Rams in a non-league game.

For an opponent trying to run with the
Westmoor Rams, they might as well be running with the bulls.
Overcoming an eight-point halftime
deficit, the Westmoor boys’ basketball team
(8-4 overall) turned up the tempo on the visiting Carlmont Scots in the second half
Tuesday to run away with a 71-64 victory.
Westmoor senior Sean Orr turned in an
explosive second-half performance. The 6-4
forward notched his usual double-double
with 25 points and 11 rebounds, but took
just four points into the halftime locker
room. He turned up the heat though, scoring
21 points in the second half, leading
Westmoor on a 27-16 third-quarter run to
overtake the Scots.
“I guess we were just sleeping,” Orr said of
Westmoor’s tepid first-half performance.
“We didn’t want to drive I guess. We were all
scared of the contact. And we just came back
in (the second half) ready to fight.”
Carlmont (7-5) was able to hold Westmoor
at bay for much of the third quarter, but the
Rams got a big splash from the bench when
senior Lukas Nodar, with 2:30 remaining in
the period, drilled a 3-point bull’s-eye to cut
the lead to 48-47.
“He comes in, he’s shooting it,” Orr said.
“I tell him to shoot it every day. That’s what
I tell everyone, to shoot it with confidence.
That’s all we need.”
Then Orr took over, giving the Rams a 5452 lead with a strong man’s dribble-drive
with just over a minute in the quarter. He
went on to rack up 14 points in the quarter,
then carried that over to the first points of
the fourth quarter to keep Westmoor in control.
The Scots went into the fourth quarter at a
disadvantage with 6-5 center Daniel Zorb
sitting due to foul trouble. Carlmont is
already down a power forward in senior
Jacob Lloyd, who hasn’t played this season
since turning an ankle in the season-opening alumni game.
Zorb tended to the post sturdily when he

Menlo grad has hand in USC’s wild Rose Bowl win
By Terry Bernal

Talk about a fairytale ending.
When USC place kicker Matt Boermeester
capped one of the most thrilling Rose Bowl
Game comebacks in history Monday in
Pasadena, former Menlo School lineman
Zach Smith was right in the middle of the celebration.
That’s because it was Smith — the Trojans’
special teams long snapper for the past four
years — who snapped the ball perfectly to

holder Wyatt Schmidt for
Boermeester’s 46-yard
game-winner with no
time remaining on the
game clock, marking the
end of Smith’s collegiate
career in grand style.
“We were just more
excited than anything to
go out there and win in
Zach Smith
that situation,” Smith
said. “It was a great way to finish my college
career. It was incredible.”

For any high school players thinking
special teams is a dead-end gig, one needs
look no further than Smith for inspiration.
When Smith joined the Menlo varsity squad
in 2010, he had ambitions of playing quarterback. At 6-2 with a strong arm, he had the
tools. The problem was the Knights were
already stacked at the position.
Smith found three future collegiate athletes
head of him on Menlo’s quarterback depth
chart. Starter Jack Heneghan would move on
to Dartmouth College, where as a junior in
2016 he led the Ivy League in passing with

2,725 yards. Matt Bradley, who played one
year of college football as a slot receiver,
and Mikey Diekroeger, currently a starting
infielder for the Stanford baseball team, were
the others.
So, Smith made a career leap that would
determine his fate of playing football
through college, and possibly beyond. He
took to an overall lineman role, playing
both sides of the ball. But it was those
early days at Menlo where he first forged

49ers look to rebuild from historically bad season
By Josh Dubow

SANTA CLARA — The wish list for the
San Francisco 49ers will be long this offseason, even after they find a fourth head coach
in four years and a new general manager.
What just a few years ago was one of the
NFL’s most talented roster when San
Francisco went to three straight NFC title
games and one Super Bowl from 2011-13
was exposed as one of the league’s weakest
in 2016.
The offense got inconsistent quarterback
play from Blaine Gabbert and Colin
Kaepernick, who showed signs of regaining
his dynamic form of 2012-13, but struggled
to sustain it for an entire game. The quarterbacks got little help on offense from a
receiving group that lacked a big-play target.
The defense might have been the worst in
franchise history, setting marks for most
points, yards and yards rushing allowed in a
single season.
It all added up to the Niners (2-14) matching the worst record in franchise history and
firing coach Chip Kelly after just one season, along with longtime general manager
Trent Baalke.
“We were 2-14,” CEO Jed York said after

Jed York

announcing the firings.
“I think that speaks for
itself. We didn’t do a lot
of things right this year,
but if we’re going to reset
and re-establish, that’s
where it starts is with the
head coach and the general manager.”
Some things the team
will deal with in the off-


Get along
York used the word culture 16 times at his
26-minute news conference as he made clear
that finding a coach and general manager
who can work well together will be paramount. Tensions between Baalke and Jim
Harbaugh led to the departure of the team’s
only successful coach in the past 15 years
following the 2014 season. York hinted
there were major issues between Kelly and
Baalke as well.
“It can’t be, you know, ‘I have the 53-man
roster and you need to go back to your
office.’ We can’t have that,” York said. “It’s
got to be these two guys on the same page,
and when we disagree on a player we need to
know what to do when we disagree on a player, and know how to move forward and move

beyond it. That’s very important to me. So,
whether the head coach is in control or the
general manager is in control, they need to
be accountable to each other.”

made him one of the league’s top defenders
before two major injuries, his leadership
will be key for the defense.
“It’s been tough for me to watch,” he said.
“Part of that is I put that on me, because guys
look at me as a person to handle certain
things and get us on the right pace out there.
Hopefully we’re going to get out of this
slump and get back to 49ers football.”

Kap’s future
One of the first big roster decisions will be
at quarterback, where Kaepernick has the
option to opt out of his restructured contract
and become a free agent. Kaepernick did not
rule out a return to San Francisco, but it will
likely depend on whether his running style
fits what the new coach wants to do.

By Ralph D. Russo

“I don’t know there is one reason to have a bowl game.”
— Andy Bagnato, former public relations executive for the Fiesta Bowl

Meaningless bowls. Too many bowls.
Made-for-TV bowls. Shrinking bowl attendance.
There have never been more bowl games,
and three years into the College Football
Playoff era there are more questions than
ever about why these games are being played
at all. Especially when high-profile players
such as Christian McCaffrey and Leonard
Fournette choose to skip the postseason to
protect their bodies for the NFL draft.
There is currently an NCAA-imposed

freeze on the creation of new bowls that caps
the field at 40 through 2019. Over the next
few years the people invested in the bowls
— commissioners, athletic directors and
bowl executives — will consider ways to
improve the bowl system and answer the
question: What should bowls be?
Chances are there will be fewer bowls,
data-driven limitations on how many bowls
a conference can lock in and maybe even
postseason games played on campus. But for

those who long for the days when there were
a dozen or so bowls that rewarded only the
very best teams in college football, well,
you might as well wish for the return of
leather helmets. Neither is coming back.
Everyone seems to agree that while the
bowl system is not perfect, it does not need
to be razed.

Trailing 64-61, Takashi produced a big
steal —  a rarity seeing as Westmoor committed just six turnovers throughout — then
pushed the tempo in transition and kicked it
out to Billot who popped a 3-pointer to tie
it at 64-64 with 3:10 remaining in regulation.
But Westmoor closed on a seven-point
run, getting more show from Nodar. It was
senior forward Alex Johansson driving to
the hoop to give the Rams the lead at 6664.
Then on the other end, Nodar grabbed
board on an ill-advised Carlmont chuck, and
with the Rams setting up a middle lane in
the half-court set, the ball found its way
back to Nodar, who kicked a bounce pass
with Orr gliding through the paint for a layin to all but seal the win.
“That was something we all work on
every day,” Orr said. “We got spacing and he
got me the ball.”

Running and gunning is going to be a staple of Westmoor’s game this season,
according to Westmoor head coach Herb
Yaptinchay. Much of that has to do with the
team’s height, or lack thereof.
“[Orr] is our biggest guy at 6-4, ”
Yaptinchay said. “After that, our biggest
guy is 6 foot. So the only way we can really
survive is we’ve got to get the tempo up.”
Orr was hardly a one-man show though.
The senior is at his best when he’s involving his teammates in the flow of the
offense, and that’s just the way he likes it.
“I think that’s a little bit of our problem
is everything is on [Orr],” Yaptinchay said.
“We’ve got guys that are capable of playing. … We need to get them to step up and
put some points up.”
Those points showed up in the box score
with three Rams scoring in double-digits. In
addition to Orr’s game-high 25, Johansson

Westmoor got 13 points from Merylle

scored 12 of the Rams’ 17 first-half points.
In the second half, the rest of her teammates got more involved, but it was Pereda
who was shut down. Kymber Gastinell
showed some bounce to her game, scoring

2:48 to play in the opening period.
Westmoor climbed to within five, 15-10,
but Carlmont’s Bayangos drained a 3-pointer and then came up with a steal and layup.
Erin Wise connected on a layup to give the
Scots a 22-10 lead after one quarter.
Trierweiler scored the first bucket of the
second quarter before Westmoor, once
again, used a mini-spurt to get back in the
game. Pereda knocked down a 3 and made
four free throws to cut the Rams deficit to

But the Scots ended the second quarter as
they did the first: using a 5-0 Trierweiler run

to hold a 32-17 lead at halftime.

from five different players. Westmoor was
still hanging on to a competitive game

HOUSTON — Brock Osweiler
will start at quarterback for the
Houston Texans on Saturday in
their wild-card game against the
Oakland Raiders.
Coach Bill O’Brien announced
the decision on Tuesday with Tom
Savage, who had started the past
two games, still recovering from a
concussion he suffered on Sunday.
Osweiler started the first 14
games this season before being
benched on Dec. 18 against
Jacksonville after throwing interceptions on consecutive drives in
the second quarter.
But Osweiler got another chance
after Savage got a concussion
early in the second quarter of a
loss to Tennessee on Sunday .

Osweiler’s work on Sunday.
“I thought he played loose,”
Brown said. “I thought he communicated well recognizing the front,
getting us into the right plays,
made some good throws. Had the

he played tough.”
Savage remains in the concussion protocol and O’Brien said if
he is cleared he will be the backup
on Saturday. If not, Brandon
Weeden, who hasn’t played since
last season, will back up Osweiler.
This game will be an opportunity for Osweiler to redeem himself
after failing to live up to expectations in his first season in
Houston after signing a $72 million contract in the offseason.
O’Brien thinks Osweiler benefited from taking a step back to
observe things after he was
benched and said he played more
“freely” than he had in the past on
“I’m sure that in some ways it’s
painful to go through that, but in

The Texans will need Osweiler to

win a playoff game for the first
time since the 2012 season.

You’ll see that two different

a bit of couscous left, but not

You could use all rice, or all couscous, or any other grain you

we’re trying to use a variety of techniques to
capture stormwater as best we can.”
The new plan focuses on three key areas
— green street design methods to capture
and treat runoff, constructing regional capture sites that can be used to recharge
aquifers, and encouraging sustainable
building techniques, said Fabry, C/CAG’s
manager of the countywide pollution prevention program.
The plan outlines a cohesive regional
approach based on watershed hydrology
instead of geographical city boundaries. It
also prioritizes proposed projects that
improve water supply and quality, manage
flood hazards or have community as well as
environmental benefits.
Equipping local governments with a formal plan is also a prerequisite to earning
state funding, such the $11 million in
stormwater grants San Mateo County
municipalities recently received, according to C/CAG.

Environmental benefits
Stormwater typically refers to naturallyoccurring runoff from rain, while wastewater is derived from household discharge.
Unlike wastewater, which is already heavily regulated, Fabry noted the rules for

Last month, the San Carlos Chamber of

Managing stormwater, which will
become even more pertinent in the face of
sea level rise, has both flood protection
and environmental benefits, he said.
Trash that gets washed away during
storms is a big problem, as are chemicals
found on roads or landscape that inadvertently end up in the system. With this in
mind, federal and state governments require
communities in the region reduce the
amount of mercury and PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyl, released into waterways.
C/CAG worked with stakeholders to create
a regional plan to meet those mandates
through infrastructure improvements.
“Since the middle of the last century,
stormwater had traditionally been handled
particularly in urban areas by putting it in
underground pipes and just sending it out
into the Bay. Unfortunately when you do
that, all the oils and grease on the roadway
go with it. This [new] approach is trying to
treat or take out the pollutants before it
goes to the Bay,” said county Director of
Public Works Jim Porter. “The challenge is
we’re working in a built-out system.”

One increasingly popular method of
treating pollutants is through green street

The stormwater plan also suggests cities
encourage that more low-impact development features are incorporated, particularly in new construction but also retrofitting flood-prone sites as well. For
example, instead of having impervious
concrete throughout a development,
builders would be encouraged to use methods to capture, filter and even reuse
stormwater on site. Another case might be
considering features at a park that neighbors a flood-prone creek, according to the
Other prime opportunities include
regional facilities that capture stormwater

This option could not only help address
flooding issues, it could also prove a valuable resource for the drought-parched state.

get even bigger theoretically with climate
change because I think we’re going to start
to see more frequent intense storms. The

Stormwater to combat drought
It’s also beneficial to recharge aquifers,
which local water utilities have recently
turned more attention to pulling from as
they seek to expand potable water sources.
Finding ways to capture and use stormwater has caught the attention of legislators
who studied various resources in light of the
drought and sea level rise.
“There’s also been interest in San Mateo
County to look at how we can potentially
have more sustainable water supplies,”
Fabry said.
Currently, most in the county are heavily
reliant upon the San Francisco Public
Utilities Commission’s Hetch Hetchy
Reservoir System. Nearly 2.6 million Bay
Area residents rely on water flowing from
nearly 140 miles away down to their faucets.
“I think there’s opportunity for us to look
at how we can manage our groundwater sustainably and use it for a more diverse portfolio of water supply as opposed to relying on
imported water,” Fabry said. “As we deal
with dwindling water supplies and increased

“I spend a lot of time with my grandchildren and youth,” she said. “That’s where I

guys. But they happen to be a little
trickier to cook than a standard-issue
burger. The slider’s size makes it tough
to put a nice crust on the outside while
ensuring that it doesn’t overcook on
the inside.
These sliders are adapted from a burger I used to make at a bar in Ann Arbor,
Michigan, called the Del Rio — my
first job as a cook. Dubbed the Det
Burger, this marvel was dreamed up
before I landed at the Del Rio by a cook
named Bob Detweiler, who baptized
the creation after himself. The heart of
the original version was a quarterpounder topped by “the Det mix” —
canned mushrooms, canned olives,
grilled onions, freeze-dried green peppers and slices of cheese.
But there also was a secret ingredient: beer. The Det Burger was steamed
in beer. If it wasn’t quite “the burger
that made Ann Arbor famous,” it was
undeniably a citywide favorite.
A generation later, I assembled the
same winning combo of ingredients —
though in a fresher form — and then
focused on the cooking process to
make sure that these mini-burgers
ended up both juicy and crusty. There
are a few key points to preparing BeerSteamed Cheese and Mushroom Beef
First, the sliders need to be about 3/4
inch thick, not only so they don’t
overcook, but also so you can fit all of
them at one time into the skillet.
Second, the skillet needs to be large, a

12-incher. If you don’t have a skillet
that big, use two smaller ones and
cook six sliders in each. And third,
whichever skillet you use, the oil must
be heated until it’s almost smoking. At
the start, you want the burgers to sear,
not steam, which is what will happen
if the pan isn’t hot enough.
At first, the sliders will be crowded
together in the skillet, but they’ll
shrink down as they cook, giving off
fat and juices in the process. You
deglaze the pan with beer, of course,
which mingles intimately with the fat
and juices released by the burgers to
create a delectable pan sauce.
I recommend spooning some of this
liquid onto the buns before sliding in
the burgers, but my son proposes a
more extravagant way to roll: pour the
sauce into ramekins and invite your
guests to dunk their sliders into it
between bites. Whatever happens
onscreen, you’ll be winning at home.

Start to finish: 50 minutes
Makes 12 sliders
3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
1/2 cup finely chopped yellow
3 ounces mushrooms (white, cremini
or shiitake), finely chopped
Kosher salt
2 tablespoons finely chopped pitted
green olives
2 tablespoons finely chopped,
drained, canned green chilies
3 ounces sliced sharp cheddar
cheese, broken into 12 equal pieces
1 1/2 pounds ground beef, shaped
into 12 sliders, each about 3/4 inch
Ground black pepper
1/3 cup beer
12 slider buns
In a large (at least 12-inch) skillet

over medium, heat 1 tablespoon of the
oil. Add the onion and cook until golden, about 8 minutes. Using a slotted
spoon, transfer the onion to a bowl.
Add another tablespoon of the oil to
the pan, the mushrooms and a hefty
pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid the mushrooms
give off has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Transfer the mushrooms to the
bowl with the onion. Reserve the skillet.
Add the olives and chilies to the
mushroom mixture and stir well. Set
Return the skillet to high heat. Add
the remaining tablespoon of oil and
wait until it is almost smoking.
Meanwhile, season the sliders on one
side with salt and pepper. When the oil
is hot, add the sliders, seasoned side
down (it will be a little crowded in the
pan), and cook them until they are just
browned on the first side, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle the top side of each with
salt and pepper, turn the sliders over
and cook for another 2 minutes.
While the sliders are browning, top
each slider with a heaping teaspoon of
the mushroom mixture, dividing all of
the mixture among the sliders, then
place a piece of cheese on top of each.
Quickly pour the beer into the pan, all
around the sliders, cover the pan and
steam for 2 minutes.
Turn off the heat and let the sliders
sit in the pan for another minute to let
the cheese melt completely. Spoon
some of the liquid in the skillet onto
the tops and bottoms of the buns,
transfer the sliders to the buns and
serve right away.

HONOLULU — Hawaii residents concerned about pesticide use by major agriculture companies on the islands are
planning a push to strengthen regulation over chemicals
they fear harm their health.
The divisive issue has drawn thousands to the Legislature
in recent years following incidents where schoolchildren
and agriculture workers fell ill and some suspected their
sickness was connected to pesticides sprayed by seed testing companies.
Several major agriculture companies test genetically
engineered crops on the islands, taking advantage of
Hawaii’s year-round warm weather to develop new types of
corn and soybeans and testing more generations of crops
than they could in other states.
A recent study found there wasn’t enough evidence to
show the pesticides used by Syngenta, Dow AgroSciences,
DuPont Pioneer and BASF Plant Science on Kauai caused
adverse health or environmental effects on the community.
But the study encouraged the state to boost its environmental monitoring and data collection.
A court decision declaring it’s up to the state — not counties — to regulate agriculture and a change in committee
leadership in the House have added momentum to the effort
to enhance state regulation.
“With really focused public pressure, we could really see
something get through. The time is right,” said Ashley
Lukens, director of the Hawaii Center for Food Safety.
Advocates are pushing bills to require companies to fully
disclose when and where they’re spraying pesticides and to
mandate buffer zones around schools and hospitals.

Selling shark fins now banned in Rhode Island
PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Selling shark fins is now banned
in Rhode Island.
A law took effect Sunday that makes it a crime to own or
sell a shark fin unless it’s used for scientific research or in
preparing a shark for ordinary consumption.
Rhode Island became the 11th state to ban shark fin sales
when Democratic Gov. Gina Raimondo signed legislation
into law in June. Hawaii was the first in 2010.
Shark fin soup is popular in Chinese cuisine but animal
rights activists say the practice of slicing off a shark’s fin
and leaving the fish to die is cruel.
The Humane Society of the United States says the laws
will help global shark populations recover.
The ban is one of several state laws taking effect on the
first day of the year.

storms were expected to dump 4 to 5
feet of snow through Thursday in areas
above 4, 500 feet in Northern and
Central California, while mountain
areas below that could get 2 to 3 feet,
forecasters said.
The storms should boost the snowpack that provides roughly a third of
California’s water in normal years for
drinking, farming and wildlife when it
melts in warm, dry months.
What surveyors find between now
and April 1 will guide state water officials in managing the water supply of
the nation’s most populous, agriculture-rich state.
Electronic monitors at elevations
throughout the Sierra in late December
showed the overall snowpack had a
water content of 72 percent.
At Tuesday’s reading at Phillips
Station, the water content measured at
53 percent of normal, said Frank
Gehrke, chief snow surveyor at the
state Department of Water Resources.
Gehrke said the level “seems a little
gloomy” as the state tries to avoid
another year of drought. But he also
called it a good start because higher

“I was blown away by the timeless,
classical beauty of this music,” she
said. “Then I thought, ‘Why not just
start a band and have fun playing it?’”
For Paynes, it wasn’t enough to find
a drummer, bassist and vocalist with
enough training to perform Led
Zeppelin’s songs, which Paynes says
are beautiful but musically complex.
She was intent on creating an all-girls’
“I had no doubt that women could
play this music,” she said. “And I knew
that no one else had done this.”
Paynes has found a range of female
musicians ready to take the charge.
She has worked with several drummers,
bassists and vocalists over the past 12
years, and describes Lez Zeppelin as a
“it takes a village” type of group.
The concept of an all-girls group
performing rock music that some consider to be the precursor to heavy metal
rock music may seem surprising.
Paynes is well aware of her group’s
challenge to perceptions of the group

elevations were showing a deeper
Gehrke also pointed out that the survey was taken at an elevation below
the snowline for December’s storms.
A year ago, the snowpack was
slightly above normal levels, but
Gehrke recalled that the rain and snow
essentially stopped in February and
March, leaving the state at a nearly
average year for precipitation on April
“This year, it looks like (storms are)
lined up off the coast and will continue
to increase the snowpack,” he said as
he stood on about three feet of snow.
Elsewhere, rain was falling Tuesday
in the San Francisco Bay Area. Winter
storm advisories will go into effect
from 4 a.m. Wednesday until 4 a.m.
Thursday, said Bob Benjamin, a
National Weather Service forecaster.
Avalanche alerts were issued for high
elevations and flooding was possible
in the foothills.
A second, stronger storm system was
expected to hit the region over the
weekend, bringing the possibility of
as much as 5 additional feet of snow in
the Sierra Nevada.
“It looks like it’s going to be wet all
week, and possibly into next week,”
Benjamin said.
Southern California, which has
remained relatively dry in recent

months, was expected to see light
showers this week, forecasters said.
At the height of the drought in 2015,
snowpack surveyors stood on a dirt
patch for the April 1 measurement at
Phillips Station, finding the least
snow since records had been taken in
more than 50 years.
Gov. Jerry Brown responded by
ordering residents statewide to use 25
percent less water, letting lawns turn
brown — or tearing them out — and
flushing toilets less often.
The drought eased last year and so did
In February, the state water board
will again consider the conditions and
decide whether the state needs to take a
stronger stand on conservation.
“If the skies dry up, we’ll be looking
at something different,” board chair
Felicia Marcus said. “We’re playing
this one moment to moment.”
This winter started strong. More rain
fell in October than in the same month
over the past three decades, raising the
state’s major reservoirs in Northern
California along with hopes that the
drought would soon end.
Doug Carlson, a spokesman for the
state’s Department of Water Resources,
said it is too early to predict if the wet
weather will end the drought.
“It could change immediately and
stop snowing and raining,” he said.

as a male bastion, both in its musical
quality and predominantly male following.
But to Paynes, an all-female group
makes sense.
“People were not so conscious of, at
least it was not something that was
discussed, the guys themselves were
actually androgynous and there was a
lot of female energy to it,” she said.
She has found the members of Lez
Zeppelin have been able to capture
their predecessors’ energy with a musical prowess that transcends gender.
Paynes is joined by drummer Leesa
Harrington-Squyres, vocalist Marlain
Angelides and bassist and keyboardist
Joan Chew. The group is organized just
as their male counterparts’ group was
years earlier, with what Paynes calls a
“power trio” playing metal instruments and a vocalist carrying the
melody. The group practices for hours
to be able to learn and perform complex music meant for live performance, working toward creating a transcendent experience for their audiences
as their predecessors did.
“They each left space for each
other,” said Paynes. “It could be very
intense and powerful but never felt like
it was slogging along. Even though it

was incredibly heavy, it flew into the
Paynes hopes that Lez Zeppelin’s
flair for defying expectations will
bring listeners of all stripes into an
appreciation for rich, live music experiences.
“People don’t get this kind of musical experience anymore,” she said.
“When you see four women digging so
deeply into music like this, [where]
people understand what it is. Then
they’re taking it to that place.”
Paynes has seen members of Lez
Zeppelin’s audience change their perspectives on rock music, as well as the
role women can play in its future.
Which is perhaps why for her, the
group’s music acts as more than a tribute to a musical icon.
“When you’re playing timeless,
classical music like this, you can
bring yourself as a musician to the
music,” she said. “Then the music
becomes a vehicle for your musical
