The council voted 5-1 to

South City eyes new pot rules

By Austin Walsh

Following state voters legalizing recreational marijuana, South San Francisco officials are slated to examine establishing local
regulations on sale and cultivation of the
The South San Francisco City Council will
host a study session Wednesday, Jan. 11,
regarding a variety of potential new restrictions designed to rein in the budding industry.
The variety of initiatives to be considered
include prohibiting smoking pot in public,
disallowing commercial sales, restricting
outdoor grows and requiring permits or other
security oversights for personal use, according to a city report.
Mayor Pradeep Gupta said he believes the
issue is ripe for discussion, as he has identified a variety of questions regarding how
legalization may take hold in South San
I will go into this study session with an
open mind with regards to how it will be
affecting our kids, our businesses and our
community, he said.
Though no action is scheduled during the
upcoming meeting, officials should look to
move quickly if they intend to establish new
restrictions as planting season for outdoor
grows should begin in the spring, according
to the report.
Officials may also opt to adopt a temporary
moratorium immediately butting out all marijuana sales, cultivation and processing,
along with barring the legal minimum of
growing six indoor plants for personal use,
to grant more time for a deeper examination
of the issue, according the report.
In the months leading up to 57 percent of
California voters passing Proposition 64 to
allow marijuana use for adults 21 and older,
local cities such as San Bruno, Foster City,
Burlingame and San Carlos took action to
establish their own set of regulations on the
drug. County officials are also exploring a
regional approach to potentially craft a template for marijuana rules, which cities within
the county could adopt in an effort to avoid a
patchwork of regulations.
Though proposals to establish local regulations have spread across the Peninsula,
Gupta acknowledged the issue could have an
enhanced resonance in South San Francisco
due to the citys hub of life sciences companies potentially interested in capitalizing on
the drug.
The legalization approval rate among
South San Francisco voters matched the state
level, as about 13,850 of the 24,300 residents who participated the fall election supported the initiative, according to the report.
The proposition passed in each precinct
across the city, except a small area near Alta

Loma Middle School where it failed by a vote

of 91 to 87.
Different cities across California have
adopted a wide variety of approaches to regulating marijuana, according to the report, as
some have embraced the opportunity to capitalize on the drug while others have looked to
ratchet down on its proliferation.
Some cities choose to allow only nondispensary businesses, such as storage or distribution facilities, according to the report.
Others allow a limited amount of dispensaries. While others still, particularly cities
with a large amount of industrial properties,
are focusing on regulations to attract testing,
manufacturing and/or indoor and mixed-light
cultivation businesses.
Beginning in 2018, a 15 percent state tax
on marijuana sales will be levied and cities
are granted the opportunity to add an additional tax should local voters support the initiative. Under state laws, medical marijuana
sales can be exempted from some of the tax
Analysts project the legal marijuana industry could generate up to $1 billion annually
for the state, according to the report, and San
Mateo County officials anticipate such businesses could create $100 million in additional revenue locally.
If South San Francisco were to establish a
business license tax on companies profiting
from marijuana sales, approximately $1.7
million could be taken in, according to the
Regarding whether a tax on such businesses may be a fit for South San Francisco,
Gupta said the issue is not as simple as examining the citys opportunity to turn a profit.
I dont look at the revenue in isolation,
he said. I look at this question in terms of
what we are compromising to get the revenue, and so far I dont have the complete
In all, as cities across California prepare
for an anticipated uptick in interest over marijuana, Gupta said he looked forward to
weighing the variety of local perspectives
regarding potential regulations.
I think well have a discussion going on
for some time because I would like to hear
how our residents feel on the issue as well,
he said.
In other business at the meeting, the council is set to consider approving a proposal to
construct a new seven-story hotel and additional recreational facilities in the Genesis
project near Highway 101. The hotel, if
approved, would add a third tower to the
large, modern development formerly known
as Centennial Towers at the foot of San Bruno

The union claims violations of state law by the university and unfair labor practices including failure to bargain in

than years past. Add in the potential for significant changes to federal policies ranging
from health care to climate change with
president-elect Donald Trump slated to take
office next week, and California leaders are
favoring a cautious approach to spending.
State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, said
he anticipates changes during Browns May
budget revision will reflect possible federal
policy shifts.
Theres so much uncertainty in the future
of California related to the economy, to economic growth as well as the effects of
Washington, Hill said. What happens in
the next three or four months, that will
affect what we do.
Assemblyman Kevin Mullin, D-South
San Francisco, agreed the states budget
could take a hit under a new presidency. He
noted the most draconian estimates predict a
$15 billion hit to Californias pocketbook
if Congress repealed the Affordable Care
But its very, very difficult at this juncture to gauge or project what that hole in our
budget is going to be because it really is
contingent upon a whole host of political
factors that are beyond our control, Mullin
said. This is where I would applaud the
governors prudence in his spending plan.
Assemblyman Marc Berman, D-Palo Alto,
echoed support for a fiscally responsible

ing of a potential $1.6 billion budget deficit
and proposing a spending plan that keeps
general fund expenditures flat at $122.5 billion. Since costs rise every year, his plan
would require cuts to keep pace, and he suggested eliminating billions of dollars allocated to education, state building construction, subsidized housing, college scholarships and child care providers.
He seeks to boost the states reserve fund
to $7.9 billion up from $6.7 billion in
the current budget year to help soften
what he warned is an inevitable recession
after 10 years of economic recovery.

acknowledging that he expected some

approach, particularly while the effects of

the national election remain unknown.
That being said, I was disappointed by a
couple of things in the budget, Berman
said, citing reductions in support for affordable housing and a college scholarship program for the middle class. A budget is the
reflection of our values and I want to make
sure the values I think we have are addressed
in the final budget.


Republican reaction

As Democrat leaders announced housing

and transportation are top priorities this
year, aspects of Browns proposal have
come as a letdown.
Brown essentially revived a prior $4 billion annual transportation package
which includes raising gas taxes and adding
a surcharge for electric vehicles that is
about $2 billion less than the Democrats
proposal and whats needed to address the
states shortfall.
I think this will be a key point of negotiations, Mullin said. Although the proposal is short of what wed like to see, I
think its encouraging that he is engaging
in that conversation. Unfortunately, I cant
say the same about housing.
While acknowledging Californias housing shortage is a growing problem with the
state representing 39 percent of the
nations chronically homeless, Brown isnt
ready to offer up new long-term funding
solutions. Instead, he insists legislators
find a way to ease development hurdles and

lower costs through budget verbiage reminiscent of his by-right proposal. The key
difference this go-round is his one-time
$400 million offer for affordable housing
needs is no longer on the table.
At a time when we need to invest in
affordable housing and transportation and
other infrastructure to sustain the economic
growth that were seeing, the governor, at
least on affordable housing, is moving in
the opposite direction. I really think there
is a fundamental philosophical divide
between the governor and the Legislature
when it comes to funding affordable housing, Mullin said. Were delinquent in our
duty if we dont address this crisis.
With the governor aware the Bay Area
serves as an economic engine for the state,
Mullin noted investing in housing and alleviating traffic is good for business as well
as Californias financial stability.
Brown has historically shown fiscal prudence and is again looking at financial projections that are more conservative than the
states Legislative Analysts Office, said
Berman, who emphasized the need to
address issues that are of particular importance to the region.
Its great that we are building up these
reserves, but we also need to make sure that
we are able to address some of the real concerns that exist in California, in the Bay
Area, on the Peninsula, in the 24th
Assembly District. And I think public college affordability, and without a doubt housing and transportation are the most pressing issues that were facing, Berman said.

Browns budget a tepid reception.

Acknowledging the need for caution in the
face of federal uncertainty, they nonetheless
rejected Browns proposed cuts to college
scholarships and child care while insisting
they will still push to increase spending on
social welfare programs.
This is not a time to eliminate important
programs that lift up the middle class,
DSacramento, said in a statement.
Brown said months of lower-than-expected revenue, combined with the likelihood of
a recession and the potential for drastic cuts
in federal spending, demand restraint.
His projection for a deficit was a stark contrast with the forecast released in November
by the Legislatures nonpartisan budget
expert, Legislative Analyst Mac Taylor, who
projected a surplus as high as $2.8 billion.
Drawing on that forecast, Assembly
Democrats in December called for $1 billion
in new spending for things such as expanding the state earned-income tax credit,
mandatory full-day kindergarten and reducing college costs.
To maintain current spending, Brown pro-

poses cutting $3.2 billion from future commitments, about half by giving schools and
community colleges less than expected. He
wants to stop enrolling new college students
in the Middle Class Scholarships program,
saving more than $30 million, cancel $300
million in upgrades to state buildings and
drop a $400 million proposal for affordable
housing that the Legislature rejected last
Brown also proposed canceling higher
payments for state-funded child care
The governors budget includes $800 million more to cover people who joined MediCal under Obamacare. He also revisited his
previous proposal, which has stalled in the
Legislature, to increase gas and vehicle
taxes to raise $4.2 billion per year for road
construction and maintenance. In all,
Californias spending plan would reach
$179.5 billion when restricted special
funds and bonds are included.
Brown also proposed eliminating drivers
license suspensions for people who fail to
pay court fines a move sought by social
justice activists who say the practice traps

people in poverty.
Many Republicans, who are more often
aligned with Brown than legislative
Democrats on spending, offered qualified
support for the governors approach but said
he should look to fix roads with existing
funds rather than new taxes.
Sen. Jim Nielsen, R-Gerber, the ranking
Republican on the Senate budget committee,
called the budget perilously balanced and
urged Brown to continue holding the line on
We cannot be getting loose with the
purse in California, he said.
Trump and the Republican-led U.S.
Congress have vowed to repeal or alter many
programs that affect California, from immigration to President Barack Obamas health
care law. California has embraced the program and has enrolled about 5 million people in private health insurance or publicly
funded Medi-Cal coverage.
The proposed budget assumes federal policies remain the same, but Brown noted the
uncertainty is another reason to maintain
the fiscal prudence for which he consistently advocates.

Movement on
transportation, housing

But addressing these costly challenges

could require new funding sources and local
Democrats noted bonds or tax increases may
be needed to make a dent in the states housing and transportation issues.
Republican state Senate leaders seemed
less willing to embrace program expansions, instead agreeing with Democrats
praise for Browns prudence in light of
financial projections indicating a deficit for
the coming years. Education and infrastructure were top priorities along with job
growth and preparing for an inevitable
downturn in the economy, according to the
Senate Republican Caucus.
But unlike their counterparts, some
Senate Republican Caucus members questioned whether fretting over Trumps election was sound and instead suggested the
state strive to cooperate with the new president. As in years past, senators also pointed
to high-speed rail and tax hikes as unwise,
according to a caucus press release.
Hill said he expects budget negotiations
with both Republicans and Brown to
eventually include fleshed-out spending
proposals for critical issues like housing
and transportation.
Its just where will the money come
from? Hill said. It needs to be significant,
but with a slight downturn in revenue

Forceful and tearful, Obama says

goodbye in an emotional speech

CHICAGO Conceding disappointments during his presidency yet

offering vigorous encouragement for
the nations future, Barack Obama
issued an emotional defense Tuesday
night of his vision to Americans facing a moment of anxiety and a dramatic change in leadership.
Obamas valedictory speech in his
hometown of Chicago was a public
meditation on the trials and triumphs,
promises kept and promises broken
that made up his eight years in the
White House. Arguing his faith in
America had been confirmed, Obama
said he ends his tenure inspired by
Americas boundless capacity for
reinvention, and he declared: The
future should be ours.
His delivery was forceful for most of
his speech, but by the end he was wiping away tears as the crowd embraced
him one last time.
Reflecting on the corrosive recent
political campaign, he said, That
potential will be realized only if our
democracy works. Only if our politics
reflects the decency of our people.
Only if all of us, regardless of our party
affiliation or particular interest, help
restore the sense of common purpose
that we so badly need right now.
He made no mention of Republican


Barack Obama delivers his farewell address in Chicago, Ill.

Donald Trump, who will replace him in
just 10 days. But when he noted the
imminence of that change and the
crowd began booing, he responded,
No, no, no, no, no. One of the
nations great strengths, he said, is
the peaceful transfer of power from one
president to the next.
Earlier, as the crowd of thousands
chanted, Four more years, he simply
smiled and said, I cant do that.
Soon Obama and his family will exit
the national stage, to be replaced by

Trump, a man Obama had stridently

argued poses a dire threat to the
nations future. His near-apocalyptic
warnings throughout the campaign
have cast a continuing shadow over
his post-election efforts to reassure
Americans anxious about the future.
Indeed, much of what Obama accomplished over the past eight years
from health care overhaul and environmental regulations to his nuclear deal
with Iran could potentially be
upended by Trump.

Trump pushes GOP leaders for fast action on health care

By Erica Werner

WASHINGTON President-elect
Donald Trump pushed Congress on
Tuesday to act swiftly to repeal
President Barack Obamas health care
law and follow up with a replacement.
Speaker Paul Ryan, after talking with
Trump, announced that the House would
aim to take both steps concurrently.
The push for speed and coordination
came as growing numbers of
Republicans expressed concerns about
GOP leaderships plans to repeal the
Affordable Care Act without a replacement in hand, potentially leaving the
20 million people who gained coverage under the law in limbo.
We have to get to business.
Obamacare has been a catastrophic

event, Trump said

in an interview with
The New York
Long to me
would be weeks, he
added of the gap
between repealing
and replacing the
law. It wont be
Donald Trump repeal and then two
years later go in
with another plan.Yet thats exactly
the scenario that had been envisioned
by GOP leaders whove described a
transition period of months or years
between repealing the enormously
complex law and replacing it with
something else.
Under the congressional timetable,
procedural budget votes set for later

this week in the House and Senate

would put the repeal process in motion.
But the vote on repealing Obamacare
wasnt expected until mid-February at
earliest; a full replacement hadnt been
expected until months or even years
Trump seemed confused about that
schedule, telling the Times that the
repeal should be probably sometime
next week, and the replace will be
very quickly or simultaneously, very
shortly thereafter.
Despite his imprecision, Trump was
clear that he put an imperative on speed
for both repealing and replacing the
law, a message certain to be received
loud and clear by congressional
Republicans, some of whom had been
urging the president-elect to make his
views on the matter better known.

Around the nation

Id stand up to Trump as AG, Sessions tells senators
WASHINGTON Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions fervently
rejected damnably false accusations of past racist comments Tuesday as he challenged
Democratic concerns about the civil
rights commitment he would bring as
Donald Trumps attorney general. He
vowed at his confirmation hearing to
stay independent from the White House
and stand up to Trump when necessary.
Sessions laid out a sharply conservative vision for the Justice Department he
Jeff Sessions would oversee, pledging to crack down
on illegal immigration, gun violence
and the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism and to keep
open the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba.
But he also distanced himself from some of Trumps public pronouncements.
He said waterboarding, a now-banned harsh interrogation
technique that Trump has at times expressed support for,
was absolutely improper and illegal.
Though he said he would prosecute immigrants who
repeatedly enter the country illegally and criticized as constitutionally questionable an executive action by
President Barack Obama that shielded certain immigrants
from deportation, he said he did not support the idea that
Muslims, as a religious group, should be denied admission
to the United States.
Trump earlier in his campaign called for a temporary total
ban on Muslims entering his country but has more recently
proposed extreme vetting.
Sessions asserted that he could confront Trump if needed,
saying an attorney general must be prepared to resign if
asked to do something unlawful or unconstitutional.

Dylann Roof sentenced to death for killing nine church members

By Meg Kinard
and Jefferey Collins


Dylann Roof, condemned to death by a jury for the hate-fueled killings of

nine black parishioners at a Bible study meeting in 2015, is shown in this
courtroom sketch in Charleston, S.C.

CHARLESTON, S.C. An unrepentant Dylann Roof was sentenced

to death Tuesday for fatally shooting nine black church members during a Bible study session, becoming the first person ordered executed for a federal hate crime.
A jury deliberated for about three
hours before returning with the
decision, capping a trial in which
the 22-year-old avowed white
supremacist did not fight for his life
or show any remorse. He served as
his own attorney during sentencing
and never asked for forgiveness or
mercy or explained the massacre.
Hours earlier, Roof threw away
one last chance to plead for his life,
telling jurors, I still feel like I had
to do it.
The slain included the Rev.
Clementa Pinckney, the church

pastor and a state senator, as well as

other pillars of the community: a
high school track coach, the church
sexton, a librarian and an aspiring
poet. They all shared deep devotion
to the church, known as Mother
Emanuel, and passed that faith
along to their families, many of
whom offered Roof forgiveness
when he appeared in court just days
after the attack.
As Roof spoke Tuesday for about
five minutes, every juror looked
directly at him. A few nodded as he
reminded them that they said during
jury selection they could fairly
weigh the factors of his case. Only
one of them, he noted, had to disagree to spare him from a lethal
I have the right to ask you to
give me a life sentence, but Im not
sure what good it would do anyway, he said.
When the verdict was read, he
stood stoic. Several family mem-

bers of victims wiped away quiet

Roof told FBI agents when they
arrested him after the June 17,
2015, slayings that he wanted the
shootings to bring back segregation or perhaps start a race war.
Instead, the slayings had a unifying
effect, as South Carolina removed
the Confederate flag from its
Statehouse for the first time in more
than 50 years. Other states followed
Confederate banners and monuments. Roof had posed with the flag
in photos.
Malcolm Graham, whose sister
Cynthia Hurd was slain, said the
jury made the right decision.

and discrimination, he said from
his home in Charlotte, North
Carolina. The journey for me and

New year baby

A practical and serious state budget

alifornia has come a long way

since the yawning budget
chasms of 2008-2012 and has
actually enjoyed a four-year stretch of
balanced budgets with some money
put away toward a Proposition 2-mandated 10 percent rainy-day reserve.
Still, even with another deposit into
the states rainy-day fund, we will still
be under our requirement.
Gov. Jerry Brown is also stating
that there is a shortfall reaching $2
billion in this years budget, which
needs to be rectied while also nding
room to place money into the rainyday fund.
In recent history, times of balanced
budgets have been followed by
tremendous decits though there is
nothing absolute to indicate any
pending shortfall will be like what
the state experienced from 2002-2006
and 2008-2012 during two periods of
severe economic downturns.
Yet the lesson we collectively
learned from those two trough periods
is that there is a critical need to put
money away toward a rainy-day fund,
and we will be just more than half-way
there at the end of the next scal year.
With tax revenue showing signs of
weakness, along with the threat of
federal changes to health care laws,

there are enough warning signs that
now is not the time to engage in additional spending. In fact, quite the
opposite is true before we reach
conditions that could merit dipping
into the reserves to balance the budget.
That is one reason why we have
strongly encouraged the state to provide for a rainy-day fund since the
economic downturn of 2001-02. The
states boom-and-bust cycles are too
acute to engage in any other form of
scal behavior. Unfortunately, it was
just recently in 2014 that California
voters put the concept into law with
Proposition 2. However, it is also
important to note that the rainy-day
fund is not the panacea to any future
budget woes, or on a grand scale a
collapse of our economy. It is simply
a salve to help future cuts from
becoming more severe.
And with revenue trajectory starting
to turn sideways instead of up, the
governor is right in strongly suggesting that spending remain low.
Its a bitter pill to swallow for
those in the Legislature who face calls

from their constituents and also interest groups for new spending on key
programs to meet a wide breadth of
needs from housing to social services
and health care and even education.
Additionally, and this is always a
sore subject for those in a variety of
positions, the state is facing a growing wall of debt related to previous
borrowing and retirement liabilities,
which is largely a carry-over from the
budgetary shell games of years past
and unsustainable worker contracts
from as far back as the late 1990s.
Climbing this wall is no small task,
and every effort should be made to
reduce it as quickly as possible.
California is in decent nancial
shape and the governor has been
incredibly cognizant of the potential
for that to turn quickly. He has also
proven responsible in acknowledging
the impact of previous decisions on
the states overall budget situation
and its lingering impacts. When he
started this tenure as governor, the
state was facing terrible decits. Now
that the nancial situation has turned
around, yet showing signs of weakness, this is a time for resolve and scal conservatism and Brown has
proven to be good at both much to
the states benet.

Learning from the past

I recently saw the movie Hidden
Figures about the black women who
worked on the American space program
in the 1960s. The movie showed
scenes of discrimination and unfairness
toward black people, and then
moments of confronting it and trying
to ght against it. The audience of
Caucasian people were very pleased to
see this. Because in this way it
changes their feeling of shame and
guilt about the episodes of extreme
inhumanity toward their fellow
Americans in the past. Im sure
though, that in those days most white
people didnt have any qualms at all
about how they treated black people.
Because I can still remember what
things were like in the 1970s. The
struggle for social equality is still
ongoing whether some like to believe
it or not.
Now, in todays America, the dehumanization of the mentally ill is OK.
Its OK to see them as monsters, and
bad people, and blame their conditions
on their own character faults. So Im
sure if Im alive in another 30 years Ill
be sitting in a movie theater watching
another movie attempting to gloss

causes the failure to recognize and to meet
the most important needs of our children. Joseph
Rosner, Myths of Child Rearing.
On New Years Day we welcomed a new great-granddaughter into our family. Looking at that sweet, innocent
newborn renewed my child advocacy campaign. That and
the onset of a new year that has a great chance of ending
up more tortuous than 2016 aroused my fears about the
future of the children in our culture.
I have long had a soft spot in my heart for the plight of
children. These days, especially, it is evident that a great
many get short shrift because: 1). Their parents are overscheduled; 2). Their parents are ignorant of (or indifferent
to) some important needs of babies and young children;
3). Too much is expected of them too soon at home and at
With the help of some of
my favorite authors who
truly understand the dilemma of children in our culture, I am writing today of
priorities. It is obvious
that there are a lot of
things that parents needed
to learn before they had
children things that our
culture apparently doesnt
take seriously. Most
important is that children
are extremely precious
precious enough for parents to be willing to sacrifice or delay some of their personal desires including having children before they are
ready. As Diane Ehrensaft wrote in Spoiling Childhood:
We are so absorbed in our own inner world and ambition
that we generate an unhealthy trade-off between personal
fulfillment and family well-being. The children pay by
getting short-changed on the intensive time required to
create a home and raise children optimally.
They are not ready for parenting if their top priority is
to do what they want to do when they want to do it in
spite of their childrens needs. They may go to the gym
to workout or have their hair and/or nails colored even
when they have little time for the family. If they have to
have every new electronic gadget that comes along or the
latest fashion as they run up high credit card bills that
demand longer hours of employment, the family suffers.
The material standards of living many of us enjoy and
all of us aspire to are higher than they have ever been,
but in achieving them, society has undercut the lifestyles
that all caring relationships, including parenting, used to
depend. Our present lifestyle has no obvious place in it
for children: no easy way for adults to function simultaneously as respected economically solvent individuals
and as caring parents. Penelope Leach, Are We
Shortchanging Our Children?
C. Kent Hayes, author of Why Good Parents Have Bad
Kids offers: The truth is that kids cant bond with a
moving target. They cant become attached to someone
who is not there or only occasionally there. Parents who
are preoccupied with their jobs, themselves or their problems are not available to their children.
Young parents are often victims of our culture that does
not adequately value our children except as potential
consumers. If we did, it wouldnt be so difficult for so
many parents to find quality day care arrangements or
other caretakers they can afford. We would encourage
more mothers to be at home with their babies and toddlers more of the time. The minimum wage would be
increased. Maternity and paternity leave would equal that
of other developed nations. We would value our children
enough to help them grow up with an appreciation of the
responsibility of parenting and model for them the
importance of being able to delay gratification for the
benefit of the family.
We would insist that our education hierarchy would get
its head out of the sand and provide appropriate education
for all children not just the college bound. We would
insist that the schools provide comprehensive sex, family life and parenting education. We would promote birth
control. Wed demand that corporate interests stop producing and advertising products for children that compromise their health. Wed slow down enough to take stock
of how our modern culture negatively impacts our progeny.
Sylvia Ann Hewlett wrote in When the Bough Breaks:
Thousands and thousands of children have been left to
fend for themselves in a society that is increasingly
inhospitable to children. Saving our kids is not just
the compassionate thing to do and the moral thing to do.
Doing right by our kids builds up our competitive
strength and knits together the raveled sleeve of this
society, but it also produces a kinder and gentler nation.

Nasdaq sets another record high on mixed day

By Alex Veiga



The Nasdaq composite index

notched its third record-high close
in three days Tuesday, eking out a
modest gain on a day when the
other major U.S. stock indexes
barely budged.
After wavering between small
gains and losses for much of the
day, the Standard & Poors 500
index closed unchanged, while the
Dow Jones industrial average
posted a slight loss. More stocks
rose than fell on the New York
Stock Exchange.
Consumer-focused companies,
banks and health care stocks were
among the biggest gainers. Real
estate companies lagged the most.
Energy stocks also fell following
a drop in crude oil prices.
Encouraging reports on small
business confidence and job openings helped keep stocks in the
green early in the day. But by
midafternoon the indexes began
to waver.
I do think the market stays
kind of quiet until it really hits
earnings season, said David
Chalupnik, head of equities for




Nuveen Asset Management. The

market will really start to take its
direction when earnings season
starts in full, and thats Friday.
The Nasdaq composite increased
20 points, or 0. 4 percent, to
5,551.82. The index has closed
higher the past six days in a row.
The S&P 500 ended unchanged at

World Bank forecasting brighter prospects for 2017

By Martin Crutsinger


Bank is forecasting the global
economy will accelerate slightly
in 2017 after turning in the worst
performance last year since the
2008 financial crisis.
The 189-nation lending agency
said Tuesday that the global
growth should expand at a 2.7 percent annual rate this year. That is
down from the banks June forecast for 2.8 percent growth this
year, but its better than last years
2.3 percent growth.
The global economy faced a
number of headwinds last year,
from economic troubles in China
to bouts of financial market turmoil.

We are encouraged to see

stronger economic prospects on
the horizon, said World Bank
President Jim Yong Kim.
The World Banks Global
Economic Prospects report projects 2.2 percent growth in the
United States, up from an estimated 1.6 percent in 2016. The U.S
forecast for 2016 is lower than
the June projection of 1.9 percent
growth, while the outlook for
this year is unchanged.
In the years since the 2008
financial crisis, the World Bank
and the International Monetary
Fund have both repeatedly
proved too optimistic in their
U.S. growth in the first half of
last year was anemic as American
companies struggled with the

impact of a strong dollar, which

cut into exports. A big fall in oil
prices also triggered a sharp
reduction in investment spending
by energy companies.
Globally, many developing
countries struggled with a fall in
commodity prices, which reduced
the income they received from
those goods.
The World Bank said that commodity exporters in emerging
markets and other developing
economies should see their
economies expand by 2.1 percent
in 2017 after a barely discernible
0.3 percent gain in 2016. The
new forecast expects commodity
prices to gradually recover, and
Russia and Brazil to resume growing after recessions last year.
Among advanced economies,

the World Bank said the United

States should benefit from a
rebound in manufacturing and
investment after last years slowdown. The World Bank said there
is a potential for an even better
performance in the United States
if the stimulus program proposed
by President-elect Donald Trump
is enacted. Trump pledged during
the campaign to cut taxes, roll
back burdensome regulations and
boost infrastructure spending.
The World Bank said the gains
realized from stronger U. S.
growth could help boost global
prospects. It cautioned, however,
that proposals to impose higher
tariffs on goods from such countries as China and Mexico represented a threat to growth if they
sparked trade wars.

Wells Fargo overhauls pay plan for bank branch employees

By Ken Sweet

NEW YORK Wells Fargo

announced a complete restructuring Tuesday of how it pays tellers
and other bank branch employees,
with incentives now tied to how
often customers use their accounts,
as the company tries to right itself
after a scandal over its aggressive
sales practices.
The long-anticipated plan has
been considered a high priority for
CEO Tim Sloan and Mary Mack,
the head of Wells Fargos commu-

nity bank division both of

whom took those jobs after the
scandal emerged. Wells Fargo had
already announced in September
that it was getting rid of the sales
goals that led employees to open
up to 2 million unauthorized
Wells Fargos 70,000-plus
front-line bank employees will no
longer be given incentives for
how many new accounts they open
or for meeting sales goals. They
will instead receive part of their
overall salary based on how the
products they sell are used, with

one component also based on

independently measured customer
service scores for their branch
Do they use the products they
have with us? Do they think of us
as their primary bank? Are we
growing customers who consider
us their primary bank? These are
the metrics we are now measuring, Mack told the Associated
Accounts that are used frequently, such as those where customers
set up direct deposits or use debit
cards often, will be a positive fac-

tor for an employees pay. Idle

accounts will not, and an account
wont be a factor toward incentives
until its been open three months.
Our goal here was to create a
pay plan that would restore trust
with our customers, team members
and the public, Mack said.
Wells Fargo employees will also
receive more of their overall compensation as a base salary, rather
than in one-time incentives and
bonuses. A teller, the lowest-level
position, will have about 95 percent of his or her total pay as a

season sales, which fell for most

of its store chains, including Ann
Dressbarn. The stock lost 60 cents
to $5.41.
Investors boosted shares in
Pacific Continental on news the
holding company for Pacific
Continental Bank will be bought
by Columbia Banking System for
$644 million. Pacific Continental
shares added $5.35, or 25.7 percent, to $26.15. Columbia shares
slid $1. 26, or 2. 9 percent, to
Major stock indexes in Europe
notched gains, led by Britains
FTSE 100, which rose 0.5 percent,
closing at a new all-time high for
the ninth day in a row. Germanys
DAX added 0.2 percent, while the
CAC40 of France inched up 0.1
percent. In Asia, Japans Nikkei
225 index dropped 0.8 percent,
while the Kospi in South Korea
slipped 0.2 percent. Hong Kongs
Hang Seng added 0.8 percent.
U.S. benchmark crude oil lost
$1.14, or 2.2 percent, to close at
$50. 82 a barrel in New York.
Brent crude, which is used to price
oil sold internationally, fell
$1.30, or 2.4 percent, to close at
$53.64 a barrel in London.

Business brief
Johnson & Johnson to reveal
average drug price increases
Johnson & Johnson plans next
month to disclose average price
increases of its prescription drugs,
as the industry tries to calm the
storm over soaring prices.
The health care giant will divulge
its 2016 average increases in list
price and net price, or what middlemen such as insurers and distributors pay J&J after discounts and
Analysts say that will help J&Js
image more than patients initially,
but could push other drugmakers to
tame future price increases and be
more transparent.
We hope that can create a better
understanding of the industry and ...
ultimately improve patient access
to medicines, Joaquin Duato, head
of J&Js prescription drug business,
said in an interview Tuesday.
With annual price tags topping
$100,000 for many new drugs for
cancer and rare diseases, some
patients have been unable to afford
their medicines. Huge price hikes
on old products with little competition, like Mylans EpiPen emergency allergy injectors, also have
left some patients scrambling.
High and rising prices have also
infuriated doctors, insurance companies and politicians, and triggered government probes into the
industrys practices. The government has no power now to regulate
prices, but the industry appears to
be starting to move to deflect further scrutiny and avoid price controls.

Raiders cut ties with OC Musgrave

By Josh Dubow

ALAMEDA The Oakland Raiders are

making changes on their coaching staff
after their first playoff berth in 14 years.
A person familiar with the plans said
Tuesday that quarterbacks coach Todd
Downing will replace offensive coordinator
Bill Musgrave next season on coach Jack
Del Rios staff. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the changes
have not been announced by the team.

Musgraves contract
was up and will not be
renewed by the Raiders in
the first changes to Del
Rios staff since he was
hired in 2015.
NFL Network first
reported that Musgrave
would not return next
Bill Musgrave season.
Oakland (12-5) made
the playoffs and posted a winning record for
the first time since 2002 before quarterback

Derek Carr broke his leg in the second-tolast game of the regular season.
Musgrave helped develop one of the
NFLs top offenses in his two seasons in
Oakland as Carr grew from an up-and-down
rookie season before Musgrave arrived into
a possible MVP candidate this season.
Carr threw for 3,937 yards and 28 touchdowns this season, while throwing just six
interceptions and taking only 16 sacks
before the injury.
The Raiders ranked sixth in total offense,
seventh in scoring and 10th in yards per

play this season.

Oakland also had a successful ground
game, averaging 4.4 yards per carry, with a
three-headed backfield led by Latavius
Murray and rookies Jalen Richard and
DeAndre Washington.
The Raiders had 416 points this season
the fourth most for the franchise in a 16game season and had seven fourth-quarter
comebacks on the way to earning a wildcard berth in the AFC.
But Oakland stumbled in the season finale

South City holds off HMB Boedkers hat

Sharks 5, Oilers 3

trick leads Sharks

By Nathan Mollat

A fast start can offset a clunky nish and

that is precisely what the South City girls
basketball team did in Half Moon Bay in a
49-41 win over the Cougars in the Peninsula
Athletic League North opener Tuesday
Ill take any win I can against this (Half
Moon Bay) team, said South City coach
Paul Carion. We played not to lose at the
end (of the game).
South City led 18-4 after the rst quarter,
but Half Moon Bay countered that by
outscoring the Warriors 17-6 in the fourth.
But an 18-point South City lead going into
the nal eight minutes proved too much for
HMB to overcome.
South City (1-0 PAL North, 10-1 overall)
jumped out to a big early lead in the rst
quarter. After HMBs Ally Longaker scored
the rst basket of the game on a putback,
South City responded with a 16-0 run to end
the rst quarter with an 18-4 advantage.
That rst quarter, it was a combo of us
missing [easy layups] and them making
everything they were shooting, said HMB
coach Antonio Veloso.
Actually, the they was, in reality her,
as in South City guard Brittney Cedeno.
After Longakers bucket, Cedeno hit backto-back-to-back 3-pointers on three
straight possessions to give the Warriors a
quick 9-2 lead.
And Cedeno wasnt done. She came up
with a steal and a layup to put South City up
11-2. After a Jerlene Miller 3, Cedeno
knocked down another layup and nished
her scoring eruption with another steal and
layup to give her 15 of her teams 18 rstquarter points on 6 of 8 shooting in the period.
Shes been doing that in big games,
Carion said. We needed our biggest player
to step up.
Cedeno led all scorers with 25 points on
the night.
In the second quarter, HMB (0-1, 8-4)
started picking Cedeno up defensively once
she got past midcourt and ran two, and South Citys Brittney Cedeno scored 15 of her game-high 25 points in the first quarter to lead

Mikkel Boedker who came in with three

Benning, with his second career goal, got the
Olers within two 22 seconds into the third.
Klefboms slap shot off a faceoff 2:23 later
pulled the Olers to 4-3.
Couture put the Sharks back up by two at

his leg and in while crashing the net.
The Sharks took a 1-0 lead just 1:39 into the
opening period as Boedker got to a rebound and
lifted the puck over a sprawling Talbot, making
his NHL-leading 38th start of the season.
Caggiula tied it up for Edmonton with four
minutes left in the first. He fought off a pair of
Sharks defenders at the side of the net before
hooking a backhand shot past Jones.

Cavalcade of coach and GM candidates continues for 49ers


SANTA CLARA The San Francisco 49ers

interviewed Carolina defensive coordinator
Sean McDermott for their head coaching vacancy and ESPN analyst Louis Riddick for their
general manager job on Tuesday.
McDermott became the first defensive coach
to interview with CEO Jed York for the coach
opening in San Francisco as the team seeks
replacements for fired coach Chip Kelly and
general manager Trent Baalke following a 2-14
season that tied the worst mark in franchise history.
The four previous head coach candidates all
served as offensive coordinators in the NFL this
season: New Englands Josh McDaniels,


Atlantas Kyle Shanahan,

Buffalos Anthony Lynn
and Washingtons Sean
McDermott just finished
his sixth season as coordinator for the Panthers. His
unit ranked in the top 10
from 2012-15 and he was
the only coordinator to
oversee a top 10 defense in
each of those four seasons.
McDermott helped the Panthers reach the
Super Bowl last season before they struggled
this season after the departure of star cornerback
Josh Norman and injuries to star linebacker
Luke Kuechly.

Before arriving
McDermott had spent 12
seasons in Philadelphia,
including two as coordinator. He was part of Eagles
teams that won six division
titles, played in five NFC
championship games and
Louis Riddick made one Super Bowl trip.
Riddick, a ninth-round
pick by San Francisco in 1991, played six seasons in the NFL with Atlanta, Cleveland and
Oakland. He then spent time in the front office
in Washington and Philadelphia after his playing career, first as a scout and then director of
pro personnel with both teams before becom-

ing a television analyst in 2013.

Dodgers, closer Jansen finalize deal


LOS ANGELES Kenley Jansen is coming

back to close games for the Los Angeles
Dodgers after finalizing an $80 million, fiveyear contract.
The team announced the deal Tuesday with
the 29-year-old free agent right-hander, who
earned his first All-Star selection last year.
The contract was agreed to Dec. 12, subject to
a physical.
Jansen gets a $4 million signing bonus
payable on Thursday and salaries of $10 million in each of the first two seasons, $18 million apiece in 2019 and 2020, and $20 million in 2021. He can opt out after the 2019
season and become a free agent again.
In addition, Jansen would receive a $1 million bonus if traded.
To make room on the 40-man roster, the
Dodgers designated infielder Micah Johnson
for assignment.
Jansen and third baseman Justin Turner were
scheduled to discuss their decisions at Dodger
Stadium on Wednesday.
In addition, left-hander Vidal Nuno agreed to
a one-year contract worth $1,125,000, up
from $532,900 last year. He was acquired in
November from Seattle for catcher Carlos
Jansen was 3-2 with a 1.83 ERA and a
career-high 47 saves, tied for second in the

major leagues, in 53

Sharapova to return from
ban in April at Stuttgart event
MOSCOW Maria Sharapova will return from her 15month doping ban at a tournament in Germany in April.
Car manufacturer Porsche, which sponsors both Sharapova
and the event in Stuttgart, said Tuesday that Sharapova has
been given a wild-card entry into the tournament. It will be her
first official competition since she tested
positive for meldonium at last years
Australian Open.
I could not be happier to have my first
match back on tour at one of my favorite
tournaments, said the 29-year-old
Sharapova, who won the Stuttgart tournament from 2012-14. I cant wait to see all
my great fans and to be back doing what I
Sharapova will be eligible to return on
April 26, the third day of main-draw play,
which could leave her facing a busy schedule of matches in order to win a fourth Stuttgart title.
Im sure the fans will be excited to see her play, WTA CEO
Steve Simon said in a statement.
The Russian will have to rely on wild-card invites to tournaments, including Grand Slams, for a while because her ban
means she has fallen out of the world rankings, which only
count tournament performances over the preceding 12 months.
Sharapova was originally banned for two years but that was
reduced on appeal in October. She said she had used meldonium
for years for medical reasons and was not aware it had been
banned for 2016.
During her ban, she has played in some exhibition events.
Sharapova also enrolled in a two-week program at Harvard
Business School last year.

with just one assist for the game, but not for a lack of trying.
It was more so what they were doing (defensively in the
second quarter), Carion said of Cedenos quiet second period. [The Cougars] were saying, Anyone but her.
The second quarter also saw the Cougars nd their rhythm
offensively. They started to move the ball much better and
with more authority. And those easy buckets that were missed
in the rst quarter starting falling in the second.
After South Citys Nevaeh Miller scored on a putback to
open the second quarter, HMB responded with a 13-1 run.

South City eventually pushed its lead to 20, 43-23, with

When Walling nailed a 3 from about 27 feet with 31 seconds to play, it cut the South City lead to 49-41, but HMB

FIFA to expand World Cup to 48 teams in 2026

By Graham Dunbar

ZURICH FIFA will expand the

World Cup to 48 teams, adding 16
extra nations to the 2026 tournament which is likely to be held in
North America.
President Gianni Infantinos
favored plan for 16 three-team
groups with the top two advancing
to a round of 32 was unanimously approved Tuesday by the FIFA
It meets Infantinos election
pledge of a bigger and more inclusive World Cup going beyond
European and South American
teams, which have won all 20
With 80 matches instead of 64,
FIFA forecasts the equivalent of
$1 billion extra income at current
rates from broadcasting and sponsor deals, plus ticket sales, compared to $5. 5 billion revenue
forecast for the 2018 World Cup

in Russia.
FIFA projects an increased profit
of $640 million despite some extra
operating costs and prize money
for teams.
FIFAs six continents should find
out by May how many extra places
they will each get.
No guarantees have been made,
Infantino said. The only sure
thing is that obviously with 48
teams everyone will have a bit
more than they have today.
UEFA wants 16 European teams
at the tournament, which is strongly favored to be played in North
America. The CONCACAF region

there could be little competition in

bullet-proof to meet all integrity

Africa and Asia could be winners in
a bigger World Cup with up to nine
places each. They had only five and
four teams, respectively, at the 2014
World Cup in Brazil.
Still, FIFA said it expects the standard of soccer to drop compared to
the 32-team format locked in for the
next two World Cups in Russia and
The absolute quality of play,
defined by high-ranked teams facing
each other most often, is achieved
by 32 teams, FIFA acknowledged in

Instead, Infantino wants to create
fervor and months of anticipation
back home in the 16 extra nations
which would qualify, some probably
making their World Cup debut. FIFA
has pointed to Costa Rica, Wales and
Iceland as examples of teams which
overachieved at recent tournaments.

Sports brief
Another Rio Olympic venue
struggling to find a use
RIO DE JANEIRO Almost five months
after the Rio de Janeiro Olympics ended,
another venue is struggling to find a use.
Rio de Janeiros city hall said Tuesday that
the Deodoro Olympic Park, which was to be
used as a park and recreation area after the
games, has been closed.
Deodoro was the second-largest venue
cluster during the Olympics and is located in
Rios impoverished north, far from the
famous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. It
held events that included equestrian, rugby
and field hockey.
Measures are being taken to ensure that
the space is reopened as soon as possible,
the city said in a statement to The
Associated Press. It did not say when that
might happen. It said a contract had been
terminated at the end of the year with a company operating the park.
Rios new Mayor Marcelo Crivella took
over on Jan. 1, replacing Eduardo Paes who
served his two-term limit and was credited as
the driving force behind the games by the
International Olympic Committee.

The parks main attraction is a public
swimming area, which is now unavailable at a time when temperatures in the South
American summer in Rio soar daily to 35C
In another setback, Rio de Janeiro last
month handed over responsibility to the
federal government for sports venues in the
main Olympic Park after a bid to auction
them failed.
Officials said only one bidder participated, and failed to provide required assurances
for a 25-year concession.
Brazils Sports Minister Leonardo
Picciani said at the time that the federal government would operate the two arenas, the
velodrome, and the tennis stadium.
A $20-million golf course built for the
Olympics is also struggling to find players
and funds to take care of upkeep.
The state of Rio de Janeiro has declared a
financial calamity and is several months
behind in paying teachers and public
employees. The country itself is in the deepest recession in decades, with unemployment at 12 percent.
This stands in stark relief to the $10-12
billion Brazil spent to organize the
Olympics. It spent a similar amount organizing the 2014 World Cup.

and 45.3 percent overall. The two-time
reigning NBA MVP fell short of a fourth
straight game with 30 or more points.
Golden State, which played its lone road
game in 10 on Sunday with a bus trip to
nearby Sacramento, again struggled to find
an offensive flow while missing everything
from layups to open 3s during stretches.
Miami lost its third straight game and

Celebrate Lunar New Year with Asian bok choy

By Katie Workman

If you tend to fall into cooking ruts,

one easy way to snap out of it is to
check out the holiday calendars of different cultures. Next up on my list of
inspirations is the Lunar New Year, or
Chinese New Year.
I love cooking Chinese and Asian
food all year, but certain foods carry
symbolism in Chinese culture and are
intrinsic parts of this holiday. Many
of the new years foods are associated
with luck and prosperity. Long noodles symbolize longevity; the word for
orange in Chinese is similar to the
word for gold, thus signifying
wealth, so that fruit is commonly presented and shared (the round shape also
signifying fullness); fish is served
whole, to symbolize a strong year to
come, start to finish; and green foods
are equated with money.
It takes just a few ingredients garlic, ginger, soy sauce, hot chili sauce
to turn a variety of vegetables into
a delicious Asian side dish. Because my
husband is knee-deep in love with bok
choy these days, that was the vegetable I picked to create my prosperity
green vegetable dish. Bok choy is
available in cute baby versions, but
for this dish you can use the inexpensive bigger bunches. Look for it in
well-stocked produce sections or Asian
specialty stores.
This dish has a nice amount of cooking liquid, so serve it over rice along-

side a main course.

Im under no illusions that money
equals happiness, but I do know that
this green dish makes my family
happy, and thats a rewarding feeling.
Wishing all of you lots of luck in the
Rooster New Year.


Serves 6
Start to finish: 20 minutes
2 tablespoons sesame seeds (optional)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
2 pounds bok choy, trimmed, sliced
into 1-inch pieces, and rinsed
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon Sriracha or other hot
chili sauce
Place the sesame seeds, if using, in a
large stock pot or braiser (this will
seem silly, but you will use the same
pan to cook the bok choy). Heat the
pan over medium heat, stirring frequently until you can smell the sesame
seeds and they turn a bit more golden
in color. This will only take 2 or 3
minutes; watch carefully that they
dont get too brown. Turn the seeds
onto a small plate and set aside.
Heat the vegetable oil in the same
pan over medium-low heat. Add the
garlic and the ginger and stir for 1
minute until you can smell the aromas.

soy sauce and hot sauce, and bring to a
simmer. Cover the pan and cook the
bok choy for about 8 minutes, until it
is tender, stirring occasionally.

Continued from page 1
recommendation and voted 4-0 on the new
standards with Councilman Ron Collins
absent. The changes will increase the minimum lot size for subdivisions to 10,000
square feet from 5,000 square feet and minimum lot width to 65 feet from 40 feet.
The new standards also include an additional provision restricting flag lots in residential neighborhoods. City officials and residents have previously deemed flag lots as disruptive to the general pattern of a neighborhood.
Several community members came forward
to urge the council to revert back to the pre2011 standards. Many residents, like Brent
Cowan, have attended public hearings on the
topic since June when the City Council
imposed an emergency moratorium, which
prohibited some residential property owners
from splitting their lots to build additional
homes. Cowan lives on Cedar Street, a neighborhood that faced a possible lot split with
resulting flag lots earlier this year. He said
the current standards had a negligible impact
on the citys housing shortage, and only
negatively impact neighbors of the eligible
properties split to accommodate large homes
on comparatively small lots.
At the end of the day, you see a five to 10
[times] factor in terms of dissatisfied residents for one resident that is satisfied, said
Cowan, according to a video of the meeting.
Resident Peter Tzifas urged the council to
vote against changing the current standards
and instead to reconsider the entire ordinance.
Just as the current code doesnt fit the
neighborhoods in and around Carmelita nor
does the proposed code fit my neighborhood
or the rest of San Carlos, he said.
Tzifas said he favored policies requiring
property owners considering lot splits to
take a neighborhoods existing qualities into
account. He said he liked the approach of one
policy requiring a minimum lot size of 5,000

square feet, with the additional requirement
that the lot split align with the average lot
size within a 300-foot radius.
Vice Mayor Matt Grocott was sympathetic
to Tzifas concerns and advised the council to
continue thinking about the entire ordinance
and how it might play out in the future.
Are we just going to take this action
tonight because weve heard so many comments? Im surprised this has gone through
the process and so many people have had the
chance to look at it to me, this is a bit of
a knee-jerk reaction to something that was
bad, he said.
Grocott acknowledged the public concerns
the council has received in the past year, and
ultimately voted to approve the new standards.
Mayor Bob Grassilli said when the standards allowing lot splits passed in 2011 they
were not meant to negatively impact San
Carlos residents, but rather had unintended
consequences made apparent after economic
conditions shifted.
A lot of times, government does things
because no ones in the room, he said. I
wish every night we had folks like this.
Councilman Cameron Johnson thanked
community members for voicing their concerns throughout the process, resulting in
improved standards for property owners in
the future.
I hope this wont be the end of it, he said,
according to a video of the meeting. I hope
you think of other things we can do to
improve your neighborhoods.
In other business, the council moved to
reopen public hearing on the regulations for
formula businesses downtown at its next
meeting on Jan. 23 to incorporate Collins
input. The efforts aim was to keep mom-andpop businesses from being displaced and
retain the areas small-town charm as commercial rents soar. Support was mixed, however, because it could have limited retail
stores that people may want downtown.
The council also moved to discuss changing to the citys general election cycle to
align with statewide election dates to Jan.


Continued from page 1
story building with 91 condominiums and
4,500 square feet of ground-floor retail
space was approved by the Planning
Commission in May but appealed by citizens group Redwood City Residents for
Responsible Development to the council,
which denied the appeal and approved the
project in July.
That sparked a citizens group lawsuit, settled in November with the agreement the
project applicant, The Pauls Corporation,
would submit a scaled-back plan for review.
Geoff Carr, a longtime downtown resident
and attorney representing Redwood City
Residents for Responsible Development,
expressed frustration it took a lawsuit to
achieve the settlement compromise at
Mondays meeting.
This kind of compromise should have
been hammered out without a lawsuit, he
said. If anyone in the city had come to us
and said, What do you think about this
one? We could have ended up with this
without all of this difficulty, expense and
unnecessary controversy.
Paul Powers, president of The Pauls
Corporation, agreed that the compromise
was not ideal, but represented a sustainable
path forward in increasing Redwood Citys
housing stock.
We support the settlement. It wasnt our
first choice, he said. We believe strongly
that the previous project and this project
represents smart growth.

Balancing needs
Several residents lent their support for
the projects approval. Peter Frank, a 20year resident, said he and his wife are looking for ways to downsize from their fourbedroom home in Redwood City, which is
central to where their children live on the
We want to stay here. I want a place I can
move to, where I can own it, he said. Its
the perfect answer for us, It [would be] the
last move were going to make.
Councilmembers leveraged extended discussion on this development to bring attention to focus areas for future discussions.
Borgens acknowledged the complexity in
balancing the housing needs of Redwood
Citys diverse population.
I love hearing that our seniors want to
downsize and move to Redwood City and I
want to make that possible, she said.

I would like for us to make sure that
those developments that we are approving
are complementary to our history, she
said, referring to the projects size and
design. I dont think this is that.

Housing impact fee

Other councilmembers noted the impact
on the number of units, especially affordable housing units, as a result of the
changes made to the original plan.
The new plan generates almost $500,000
less in the affordable housing impact fee,
which allows the city to charge project
applicants for new residential and commercial developments to help fund the provision of affordable housing units in the city.
The project at 603 Jefferson Ave. marks the
first time since the city adopted the fee in
December of 2015 that is subject to it, said
Assistant City Manager Aaron Aknin.
Councilman Jeff Gee drew attention to the
magnitude of the affordable housing impact
fee reduction, which he said is a multiple of
the face value.
Perhaps one of the unintended consequences is the financial impact of contributing $500,000 less toward affordable
housing, he said. We have learned that
whatever monies we can offer as a city are
leveraged five to 10 times over.
Councilwoman Shelly Masur was similarly affected by the loss in funds accompanying the reduced project, reminding the
group of the urgency of the areas housing
At almost every single meeting that we
have, someone comes before us to talk
about the dire straits that members of our
community are in with regard to housing,
she said. It takes money to bring in affordable housing. It cant be done without
leveraging other monies.

For Vice Mayor Ian Bain, the obstacles
encountered with the 603 Jefferson project
plan offered an opportunity for improved
communication between developers, city
councilmembers and members of the community so that proposed projects reflect a
wide array of community needs. He also
implored future developers to consider

LOS ANGELES The force, it

seems, was with Los Angeles. And San
Francisco was left on the dark side.
Star Wars creator George Lucas
and his team were on the side of the
City of Angels over the City by the
Bay on Tuesday, choosing L.A. as the
home of a museum that will showcase
his lifes work along with a huge collection of exhibits on film history
and art.
After what organizers called extensive due diligence and deliberation,
they announced that the Lucas
Museum of Narrative Art will be built
in Exposition Park, where it will sit
alongside the Natural History Museum
of Los Angeles County and the
California Science Center, which
houses the space shuttle Endeavour.
Lucas has been trying to build the
museum for nearly a decade and is
financing the project by himself with
plans to spend over $1 billion.
It had several possible locations,

Continued from page 1
Bruno after working as a teacher for
five years in the San Bruno Park
Elementary School District.
He transitioned from his counseling
role to become the assistant principal
at Aragon High School, before being
named principal of Burlingame High
School, where he stayed for 15 years.
Though he has spent a majority of
his time in education as an administrator, Teshara said he has always considered himself a teacher.
Everyone at a school is a teacher,
because kids are modeling, observing
and watching everything we do all the
time, he said. Even when you wish
they wouldnt.
Seeing Teshara practice his craft as
the head of a school is akin to witnessing a master of his element, weaving
through crowds of students between
classes and teachers greeting each
individually and frequently offering a
gentle ribbing or joke.
A personal touch is integral to making a good educator, said Teshara, who
said the defining characteristic of the
most qualified teachers is the ability to
be earnest and up-front with students.
The commonality is authenticity,
he said. If you present yourself as an
authentic adult, students and young
people will react to it.
A healthy sense of humor helps too,
he said.

but the choice

down to perpetual
rivals in Northern
Island, with its sceGeorge Lucas nic views in the
middle of the bay,
as a home that the museum would have
had virtually to itself.
The museum will house Lucass personal collection, which includes
40,000 paintings, illustrations and
film-related items including storyboards and costumes from The Wizard
of Oz, Casablanca and, of course,
Star Wars.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti
emphasized that it would not be just a
Star Wars museum.
This is a collection of narrative art
in a city that has the best storytellers
and story makers in the world, he said
at a news conference.
I am disappointed, of course, but

must respect the decision, San

Francisco Mayor Edwin M. Lee said in
a statement. I am pleased that the
museum will be built in California for
our states residents to someday
L.A. seemed an obvious choice for
Lucas, not merely because of its film
industry legacy. He is an alumnus and
major donor to the film school at the
University of Southern California,
which is right across the street from
the museum site.
However, Lucas has strong San
Francisco ties as well. He has lived in
the Bay Area for most of his life, and
the city was home to Lucasfilm until
Disney Co. bought it in 2012.
Garcetti said the Exposition Park
site will allow museum-hoppers to see
movie-magic spacecraft and then walk
over to see the real thing: the space
You can go from imagining space,
to actually seeing how it got done,
the mayor said. You can see how we
are inspired by the natural world, and
see how we put it on the screen.

If its funny, then laugh, he said.

Especially if it is about yourself.
Following his move to the adult
school, Teshara said he has learned to
appreciate the unique learning environment apart from the traditional setting offered at the districts comprehensive schools.
Adult school classes are offered to
students seeking English language
skill development, career technical
education, high school or general education diplomas, training for citizenship exams or a variety of other
enrichment programs.
He has formed a deep admiration for
the hard work and commitment shown
by adult school students, as many balance a variety of personal and professional obligations against their pursuit for a better education.
People are learning, growing and
trying to improve, he said. Its a
good thing. Its a positive workplace.
He also expressed his esteem for
teachers at the school who volunteer
their time to offer guidance to fellow
community members.
They are almost like missionaries
in their desire to serve a population
that is underserved, to say the least,
he said.
The confluence of distinctive perspectives is unlike most other
schools, where some young students
may resent their obligation to attend
classes, he said.
This place is a little more magical,
because everyone is a volunteer, he
said. We dont have to tell them it is

important. They know it and that is

why they are here.
Looking ahead to being granted an
abundance of free time, Teshara said he
is uncertain exactly how he will fill his
days, but imagines family will take a
priority as his second grandchild was
born only one month ago.
Superintendent Kevin Skelly said in
a press release Teshara will leave a
lasting impression on the adult
school, as well as the district.
Larry is a community icon, he
said. He is an extraordinary man who
has done extraordinary things for so
many people. He will be dearly missed
from the halls of the adult school and
district leadership meetings.
Former superintendent Tom Mohr
expressed a similar sentiment in a prepared statement.
Larry Teshara has had a phenomenal
career. No one in this county who has
been responsible for thousands of students, has served students in a more
professional and principled manner,
said Mohr, who now serves as president of the San Mateo County
Community College Board of Trustees.
He is the manifestation of all the qualities an educator should strive for.
Though his work is not officially
done for another five months, Teshara
said he does not plan to rest on his laurels once he closes the book on the
final chapter of a long and accomplished career.
Ill miss the action of the school
and the interaction with the students,
he said. I hope I keep some connection, but Ill find something to do.

Scandal cant keep VW

from big sales increase
By David McHugh


Men carry an injured policeman to a hospital after a suicide attack in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Bombs near Afghan capital

government offices kill 38
By Rahim Faiez

KABUL, Afghanistan Two

large bombs one triggered by a
suicide attacker exploded near
government offices Tuesday,
killing at least 38 people and
wounding dozens of others in the
deadliest Taliban violence in
Kabul in months.
southern Afghanistan,
another attack at a guesthouse
belonging to the governor of
Kandahar province killed five
people and wounded 12. An
ambassador from the United Arab
Emirates and other UAE diplomats were among the wounded,
authorities said.
The Kabul suicide bomber struck
about 4 p.m. as workers were leaving a compound of government
and legislative offices, said
Interior Ministry spokesman
Sediq Sediqqi. The second bomb,
which was planted in a car,

exploded minutes later after security forces had rushed in to help

the victims, he said.
The Taliban, who have been
waging a 15-year war against the
U.S.-backed government, claimed
the attack in the capital.
The 38 dead included civilians
and military personnel, and
another 72 people were wounded,
said Public Health Ministry official Mohibullah Zeer.
Among the wounded was
Rahima Jami, a member of parliament from Herat province in western Afghanistan, said another lawmaker from the province, Ghulam
Faroq Naziri.
It appeared to be the deadliest
attack in Kabul since July, when
two suicide bombers struck during
a demonstration held by Hazaras,
a Shiite Muslim ethnic group,
killing 80 people. That attack was
claimed by a local affiliate of the
Islamic State group.
Fighting in Afghanistan tends

to taper off during the winter,

when mountain supply routes used
by the insurgents are impassable.
President Asharf Ghani strongly
condemned the Kabul bombings
in a statement from the presidential palace.
Amnesty International said the
bombings indicate that the
Taliban are pressing ahead with a
gruesome campaign of violence
that makes no effort to spare
civilian lives.
Targeting first responders in a
car bomb that killed many people
that were on the street shows a
chilling contempt for human
life, said Champa Patel, Amnesty
Internationals South Asia director.
In the Kandahar attack, two
explosions inside the governors
compound killed five people and

Booming business in China
helped push Volkswagen to a 3.8
percent sales increase in 2016
despite lawsuits and criminal
investigations over its cars that
cheated on emissions tests.
Volkswagen sold 10.31 million
cars across all of the companys
brands, which include Audi,
Porsche and Skoda. Sales in China
grew 12.2 percent for the full year,
to 3.98 million.
Volkswagens bid for the title of
worlds largest carmaker against
the sales leader from 2015,
The Japanese automaker led with
10. 15 million, followed by
Volkswagen with 9.93 million and
U.S.-based General Motors with
9.8 million.
Volkswagen was helped by a
strong December. Global sales
jumped 11.8 percent during the
month, with stellar growth of
18.6 percent in China, the companys biggest single market.
Volkswagen has agreed to a $15
billion settlement with U. S.
authorities and car buyers, but is
still solving its legal issues. It has
a criminal penalty pending and an

Sales fell by 2.6 percent for the
year in the U.S., where the scandal
first broke in September 2015.
U. S.
Volkswagen had illegally installed
software that turned on pollution
controls when cars with diesel
engines were on test stands.
During normal driving, the emission controls were turned down,
improving performance but violating limits on health-damaging
nitrous oxides. Some 11 million
cars worldwide were sold with the
illegal software.
Yet even the U.S. market showed
signs of a rebound, with a robust
increase of 16 percent in the last
month of the year. The U.S. is a
much smaller market for the company than China, a factor which
helped limit the global sales damage.
Volkswagen still faces serious
trouble from the scandal. It has yet
to agree on a criminal penalty with
the U.S. Justice Department that
could run to several billions of
dollars. In addition to the executive arrested in Florida, Oliver
Schmidt, engineer James Liang
has pleaded guilty to conspiring
to defraud regulators and customers.
