Chilly response to ice rink plan

Burlingame officials favor golf entertainment for driving range site
By Austin Walsh

Folks seeking a good time on

the Burlingame Bayshore should
be aiming for aces and birdies
ahead of taking slap shots or practicing skating pirouettes, claim
officials considering rejuvenating

the citys driving range.

Topgolf, a modern golf entertainment attraction, to move into the
Burlingame Golf Center over a
proposal to build a new ice rink at
the site, according to a recommendation issued ahead of the City
Council meeting Tuesday, Jan. 17.

The direction comes to the chagrin of skating and hockey enthusiasts who hoped a new rink could
be built at the city-owned site, at
250 Anza Blvd., satiating the substantial local appetite for full,
fresh sheets of ice.
While we are disappointed by
the initial recommendation of the

working committee, we remain

steadfast in our belief that our proposal provides the best social and
recreational benefit to the city of
Burlingame and the Peninsula
region for residents of all ages
while still providing a healthy
revenue stream to the city of

BUENA PARK Flames poured from

the windows of a fire station on a rainy
Southern California morning, the raging blaze destroying firefighting vehicles and ravaging the building while a
crew was out on a call Thursday.
No one was injured in the fire that
broke out around 3:30 a.m. at Station 61
in the city of Buena Park near the
Knotts Berry Farm amusement park,
Orange County Fire Authority Capt.
Larry Kurtz said. Another crew housed in
the station escaped safely.
The blaze destroyed a 100-foot-long
aerial ladder truck, a battalion chief
command SUV, a pickup truck and a
swift-water rescue boat. In all, about
$1.5 million in firefighting equipment
was lost, Kurtz said.

It took more than 60 firefighters from

multiple agencies several hours to douse
the flames, which severely damaged the
station. Water pooled around crews as
they hosed down the blackened building.
The cause was under investigation. A
fire engine was away on a call when the
fire broke out, Kurtz said.
Station 61 had been earmarked to
close and make way for a new, $13 million station house nearby, the Orange
County Register newspaper reported.
The fire will not affect any requests for
firefighting or paramedic coverage in
Orange County, Kurtz told the newspaper.

Auto shop owner pleads no

contest to insurance fraud
A Redwood City man was sentenced to
two years probation and 40 days in jail
after he pleaded no contest to two felony
charges of insurance fraud Thursday, said
Steve Wagstaffe, San Mateo County district attorney.
Though Uriel Lenin Sotomayor, 32,
pleaded no contest to felony charges, a
judge reduced the charges to misdemeanors
at sentencing. He will receive credit for
one day served, said Wagstaffe.
In 2010 and 2011, four individuals
brought their vehicles into Quest Auto
Collision Shop, where Sotomayor was
foreman and later owner. At one point, the
shop was renamed Premier Auto Collision
Shop. All four car owners had insurance
estimates done and payments made to the
shop, and were inspected by either the
California Bureau of Automotive Repair or
Farmers Insurance. In each of the cases,
discrepancies between the value of the
work performed and what the insurance
paid were found. In one instance, an insurance company paid for a new auto part to
be installed, but the shop repaired the part
instead and kept the difference. Sotomayor
also obtained a workers compensation
policy at a low rate based on fraudulent
representation of his shops payroll,
according to prosecutors.
From our perspective, its a very
lenient sentence, said Wagstaffe.
Sotomayor will next appear in court
Feb. 23 for restitution, which prosecutors
estimate to be between $30, 000 and

Educators salute state

school spending plan
Browns increased proposal pulls state closer to pre-recession spending
By Austin Walsh

Education officials offered mixed

reviews to Gov. Jerry Browns proposed increased spending on public
schools, as the state system creeps
closer to hitting funding levels
enjoyed prior to the Great Recession.
Of the proposed $179. 5 billion
spending plan for the 2017-18 fiscal
year unveiled Tuesday, Jan. 10, $73.5
billion would be set aside for K-14
public schools, marking a $2.1 billion increase from the previous year.
Though state lawmakers must first
vote to approve the budget before the
increased school spending is authorized, some state educators offered initial indications they are satisfied with
another year of enhanced investment
benefiting California students.
San Mateo County Superintendent
Anne Campbell noted in an email
Browns desire to adopt a fiscally conservative approach to managing the
states finances may have a cooling
effect on some programs.
The governor released a cautious
and conservative state budget this
week, warning that revenue growth
was lower than expected and that
California could be headed for a deficit
if we dont implement spending
delays and deferrals, she said. It
includes a significant reduction in
[Local Control Funding Formula] gap
funding to schools and does not
include any additional revenues to offset the increased cost for retirement
system payments by employers.
The Local Control Funding
Formula, or LCFF, is the financing
mechanism school districts use to
access state funding.
State Superintendent Tom Torlakson
instead lauded Browns willingness to
increase spending on schools, while
preserving his lasting commitment to
building state reserves for fear of an
economic downturn.
In a year where Californias overall
revenue is down, this is still another
positive step forward for Californias
6.2 million public school students,

he said in a prepared statement. The
governors proposed budget continues
to invest more in helping students
succeed on their way to 21st century
careers and college.
Under the proposed budget, perpupil spending stands to jump by
$300 from the year prior to $10,900.
In all, the total education investment
is roughly $26 billion more than the
amount during the depths of the Great
State lawmakers are expected to
spend the coming months dissecting
the proposal before approving it for
Brown to sign, as a budget is required
to be passed by the end of June.
Though the increased investment
marks a significant jump in funding
for schools over the past several
years, more work stands to be done to
make California competitive with the
rest of the nation in terms of matching
dollars to students, Susan Henry, president of the California School Boards
Association, said in a prepared statement.
In this budget, Gov. Brown has
reiterated his commitment to invest in
the future of Californias transportation infrastructure, she said.
However, Californias students are
our states human infrastructure, and
we must invest in them as well.
Henry cited rising pension costs as
a primary concern regarding the state
school systems financial health.
Recognizing that these costs will
continue increasing at a much higher
rate than previously projected, it is
incumbent upon the state to protect
the Proposition 98 guarantee and to
move toward an adequate level of funding for our schools, she said.
Proposition 98 is the voter
approved initiative requiring a minimum of the states budget to be spent
on the public school system. A portion of the increased money available

for schools is available through the

fall passage of Proposition 55,
extending income tax hikes to fund
public education.

The unknown about

pots health effects
By Malcolm Ritter

NEW YORK It can almost certainly ease chronic pain

and might help some people sleep, but it may also raise the
risk of getting schizophrenia and trigger heart attacks.
Those are among the conclusions about marijuana reached
by a federal advisory panel in a report released Thursday.
The experts also called for a national effort to learn more
about marijuana and its chemical cousins, including similarly acting compounds called cannabinoids.
The current lack of scientific information poses a public
health risk, said the report, from the National Academies
of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine. Patients, health
care professionals and policy makers need more evidence to
make sound decisions, it said.
For marijuana users or those considering it, theres very
little to guide them on amounts and health risks, said Dr.
Marie McCormick of the Harvard School of Public Health,
who headed the committee.
Several factors have limited research. While the federal
government has approved some medicines containing
ingredients found in marijuana, it still classifies marijuana
as illegal and imposes restrictions on research. So scientists have to jump through bureaucratic hoops that some
find daunting, the report said.
A federal focus on paying for studies of potential harms
has also hampered research into possible health benefits,
the report said. The range of marijuana products available
for study has also been restricted, although the government
is expanding the number of approved suppliers.
Twenty-eight states and the District of Columbia have
legalized marijuana for a variety of medical uses, and eight
of those states plus the district have also legalized it for
recreational use.

CNN at war with Trump
over what reporting unleashed
PASADENA A week before the inauguration, CNN is at
war with an incoming president, not necessarily for what it
reported but for what its reporting
For all the noise accusations of fake
news, the confrontation between Donald
Trump and CNNs Jim Acosta at a news
conference, false claims about what CNN
had reported or linked to that realization emerged toward the end of a remarkable 25-minute televised confrontation
between Anderson Cooper and Trump
Donald Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway.
When it reported on Tuesday that
national intelligence officials had informed the presidentelect that the Russians had collected a dossier on his behavior, CNN did not specifically detail what that behavior was
because it couldnt vouch for its veracity. But it was CNN that
gave BuzzFeed the cover to do so, Conway said.
You got the party started, she said.
The question is raised: if one person unlocks a box and
walks away, is that person responsible when someone else
opens the box and removes its unsavory contents?
The dossier was reportedly prepared by a former Western
spy as part of a political opposition research effort, and
detailed supposed efforts by Russian intelligence to compromise Trump during visits to Moscow. Its existence and contents became known by some Washington leaders last fall,
while the presidential campaign was still going on.

Watchdog to probe Comeys,

FBIs actions before election
WASHINGTON In yet another aftershock from the
chaotic presidential campaign, the Justice Department
inspector general opened an investigation Thursday into department and FBI
actions before the election, including
whether FBI Director James Comey followed established policies in the email
investigation of Hillary Clinton.
Democrats have blamed Comeys handling of the inquiry into Clintons use of a
private email server, and his late-October
public letter about the case, in part for her
James Comey loss to Republican Donald Trump.
Workers are now putting final touches
on preparations for next weeks Inauguration Day festivities,
and the new probe will not change the election results. But it
revives questions of whether the FBI took actions that might
have influenced the outcome.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz, the departments
internal watchdog, will direct the investigation, which
comes in response to requests from members of Congress and
the public.
Comey said he was pleased about the review and the FBI
would cooperate fully with the inspector general.

Obama ends visa-free path

for Cubans who make it to U.S. soil
WASHINGTON President Barack Obama announced
Thursday he is ending a longstanding immigration policy
that allows any Cuban who makes it to U.S. soil to stay and
become a legal resident.
The repeal of the wet foot, dry foot policy is effective
immediately. The decision follows months of negotiations
focused in part on getting Cuba to agree to take back people
who had arrived in the U.S.
Effective immediately, Cuban nationals who attempt to
enter the United States illegally and do not qualify for humanitarian relief will be subject to removal, consistent with U.S.
law and enforcement priorities, Obama said in a statement.
By taking this step, we are treating Cuban migrants the
same way we treat migrants from other countries. The Cuban
government has agreed to accept the return of Cuban nationals who have been ordered removed, just as it has been
accepting the return of migrants interdicted at sea.

Biden with the Medal of Freedom

WASHINGTON At the dusk of both

of their political careers, surrounded by
teary friends and family, President
Barack Obama on Thursday bestowed
the Presidential Medal of Freedom on
Joe Biden, the man he called the finest
vice president we have ever seen.
The vice president winced in shock
as Obama announced he was conferring
the nations highest civil honor on his
right-hand-man for eight years. Biden
turned away from the cameras, wiped
away some tears, then stood stoically
as Obama draped the blue-and-white
ribbon around his neck.
I just hope that the asterisk in history that is attached to my name when
they talk about this presidency is that I
can say I was part of the journey of a
remarkable man who did remarkable

things for this country, Biden said.

There were standing ovations several of them at what had been billed
as a modest farewell ceremony for
Biden but evolved into a surprise

last time Obama will present the
I had no idea, Biden said of the
award, insisting he didnt deserve it.
It was the only time Obama has presented the medal with distinction,
also awarded only once by each of the
previous three presidents.
One week out from the Obama administrations end, a deep sense of nostalgia set in at the White House as longtime staffers pack up their offices, send
out their last emails and bid farewell to
the president theyve served. On

Chicago to deliver his valedictory

Biden: Intel officials told us Trump allegations might leak

By Josh Lederman

WASHINGTON Vice President Joe

Biden said Thursday that top intelligence leaders told him and President
Barack Obama they felt obligated to
inform them about uncorroborated
allegations about President-elect
Donald Trump out of concern the information would become public and catch
them off-guard.
In an interview, Biden said neither

he nor Obama asked U.S. intelligence

agencies to try to corroborate the
unverified claims that Russia had
obtained compromising sexual and
financial allegations about Trump.
I think its something that obviously the agency thinks they have to
track down, Biden said. He added later,
It surprised me in that it made it to the
point where the agency, the FBI
thought they had to pursue it.
In the hourlong session with the
Associated Press and other news outlets, the vice president was sharply

critical of Trump for publicly disparaging intelligence officials, saying

Trump was damaging U.S. standing
and playing into Russias hands. He
also took umbrage at Trumps comments accusing intelligence agencies
of allowing the information to leak
publicly and drawing a comparison to
living in Nazi Germany.
The one thing you never want to
invoke is Nazi Germany, no matter
what the circumstances, Biden said.
Its an overwhelming diversion from
the point youre trying to make.

University system creates post

to deal with sexual violence T

SAN FRANCISCO The University of

California has created a new post for a Title
IX coordinator to oversee efforts across its
10 campuses to tackle sexual violence and
harassment after a string of cases involving
faculty members.
The UC named current UCLA Title IX officer Kathleen Salvaty, an attorney, to the new
job that includes overseeing investigations
into complaints of discrimination and
harassment and also sanctioning faculty or
students who violate campus policies.
She will start her new job Feb. 6, working
with Title IX officers at all campuses and
reporting directly to UC President Janet
Napolitano, the UC said in a statement.

on tape making inappropriate comments to
a female employee. Pattiz told the Los

regrets making the comments.
Under the new policy, all regents now
must take the universitys training program
in sexual harassment prevention, as do
employees at all 10 campuses.

Pay gap between college grads
and everyone else at a record
WASHINGTON Americans with no
more than a high school diploma have fallen so far behind college graduates in their
economic lives that the earnings gap
between college grads and everyone else has
reached its widest point on record.
The growing disparity has become a
source of frustration for millions of
Americans worried that they and their
children are losing economic ground.
College graduates, on average, earned 56
percent more than high school grads in
2015, according to data compiled by the

That was up from 51 percent in 1999 and
is the largest such gap in EPIs figures dating to 1973.

UC system tuition hikes

Other voices

San Diego Union-Tribune

he leaders of the University of

California system unsatised
with funding provided by Gov.
Jerry Brown and the state Legislature and
interested in ambitious new initiatives
are seeking signicant tuition hikes. For
the 2017-18 school year, the 10-campus
UC system wants a 2.5 percent increase in
in-state tuition, to $11,502, and a 5 percent increase in the student services fee, to
But the governor and lawmakers should
oppose any increases until they get meaningful answers to a meaty question: How
does the UC system justify the explosion
in its number of administrators?
In 2000, according to a 2015 Los
Angeles Times report, UC had about 50
percent more faculty members than administrators and managers. But the number of
administrators and managers passed the
number of faculty in 2011, and, as of 2015,
there were 10,539 administrators and managers and 8,899 tenured or tenure-track faculty. By contrast, in 2014, in the 23-campus California State University system,
there were 10,099 tenured or tenure-track

faculty and 3,726 administrators and managers, according to a California Faculty

Association study.
So UC needs nearly three times as many
administrators for its 238,000 students
than CSU does for its 460,000? Why? UC
ofcials say the biggest growth has been
in UCs self-supporting system of medical
centers. They also say increased enrollment has required adding administrators and
managers. But that still doesnt explain
why UC needs more than twice as many
such ofcials now as it did in 2000.
Charles Schwartz, a retired UC Berkeley
professor who has studied UC nances for a
quarter-century, notes that there has been
huge growth in UC employees in the supervisor category, especially on the staffs of
chancellors, deputy chancellors and deans.
Who, Schwartz asks, are they supervising?
The proliferation of college bureaucrats
has not been limited to UC; it follows a
national pattern. Johns Hopkins professor
Benjamin Ginsbergs 2011 book, The Fall
of the Faculty: The Rise of the All-

Administrative University and Why It

Matters, coined the term deanlets to
describe those in the job category that
Schwartz cited.
Scholars who have studied the subject
think theyve zeroed in on whats causing
this: the political science theory of
empire-building. Leaders believe their
organizations gain more prestige and
power the bigger they get. They resist
attempts to scrutinize whether the growth
is sensible or defensible on the grounds
that of course they know best.
That certainly sounds like the UC under
President Janet Napolitano. Even though
state leaders are so frustrated with the
murky nancial reporting from their agship university system that theyve ordered
seven audits of UC since 2012, UC glides
along, impervious to its obligations to
elected leaders and taxpayers alike. Last
year, UC even issued an ofcial accountability report largely focused on its
accomplishments instead of concerns
about administrative bloat or vague nancial statements.
Brown and the Legislature should not tolerate this irresponsibility. The state budget
is their lever to force change. Lets get on
with it.

Docktown resident, Thomas Howard, who
lived on the most historic Docktown

Israels Fig Leaf

Norman Lichts letter is in error in several
ways (Kerrys failed peace agreement in

First, no nation in the world, including the
United States, accepts the legality in international law of Israels settlements in the
occupied territories. Second, it is Israel that
sets conditions for negotiations, not the
Thus, even though the Palestinians long
ago recognized the state of Israel, Israel now
insists that it must recognize Israel as a
Jewish state. It is a given for the Israelis that
at least the larger settlements and East
Jerusalem will remain part of Israel. Finally,
direct negotiations with Israel have only led
to further loss of land and ethnic cleansing.
Negotiations are a g leaf for Israel, by
which it can look like it is negotiating for
peace while expanding its presence in the
West Bank. As Uri Avnery, the Israeli peace
activist and author has stated, Israel is negotiating over a pizza while it continues to
consume the pizza.

Legacy of passion
and leadership

alcolm Gladwell said it took

10,000 hours to become an
expert in something which, at
20 hours a week, would take 10 years. At 40
hours a week, it would take ve years.
So considering that Larry Teshara has
been an educator in San Mateo County, the
bulk of it at the San Mateo Union High
School District, I suppose that would make
him an expert
times 10.
And by spending just a few
minutes with
him, that
becomes abundantly clear.
This man
knows what he
is talking
Combine that
with the
patience of a
saint, a tremendous sense of
and sometimes self-effacing humor, the
insight of a sage and a passion for the work
he has been immersed in for so long and
you have quite an educator. Not only that,
but you have a strong pillar of a community.
So when he announced he was retiring
this year, I wasnt really surprised because,
well, all good things must come to an end.
In fact, I had heard he would be celebrating
his 50th year in education in February and
thought it might make a good feature story.
The retirement beat me to the punch.
I dont recall exactly when I rst met Larry
Teshara, it might have been when Al Gore
came as a presidential candidate to the San
Mateo Adult School. But I had known of
Teshara, known to most as Mr. T, before
that since he was my wifes principal at
Burlingame High School in the early
1990s. He was one of those principals who
had an impact on people because he cared
about them, and wanted to make a difference
in their lives. I know too he had a profound
inuence on my wifes brother, who carries
Mr. Ts lessons with him to this day.
My experience with him was primarily
through the San Mateo Adult School, which
he has led for about 20 years. It was through
his passion for the facility that I developed
my own passion for it recognizing its
virtues and becoming one of its defenders
from potential changes. Those changes
included moving it to make way for another
school or even a state proposal to move
adult education from K-12 districts to community colleges. The fact of the matter is
that adult schools in general and the San
Mateo Adult School specically are critical
entry points for the many students who rely
on the programs to gain access to language
and computer skills, basic education and
other unique programs. The San Mateo Adult
School serves about 8,000 students who are
looking to better themselves and their place
in the community. Immigrants in particular
benet from new English skills and citizenship classes. While the adult school does
not have the arsenal of concerned parents
traditional schools have, they have had a
strong advocate in Larry Teshara, who was
always kind enough to extol its virtues with
real-life examples at the ready.
That advocacy resonated with me, in part
because it was genuine, and also because it
was true. If it werent for someone like him
to show me, I wouldnt have necessarily
considered it. Thats the power of leadership
and passion.
And while I wish he could serve the community for another 50 years, I recognize
that is impossible. But there is a strong
legacy established that I simply do not have
the words to describe as I am just one of
thousands who have been changed for the
better by the work of this man and his thousands and thousands of hours he has given
to us all.

Financial companies lead stocks lower; oil rises

By Alex Veiga




Banks and other financial companies led U.S. stocks modestly

lower Thursday, wiping out much
of the markets gains from a day
Phone companies, real estate,

Amazon plans to hire 100,000 over the next 18 months

By Mae Anderson

NEW YORK Amazon plans to hire

100,000 full-time workers over the next 18
months, highlighting its ambitious expansion plans and the sharp contrast the ecommerce powerhouse strikes against traditional brick-and-mortar retailers, many of
which are cutting jobs and closing stores.
Amazon has long been known for investing the money it makes back into its businesses, and its doing that with a

vengeance. The new hires will largely support new Amazon fulfillment centers in
states such as Texas and California, expanded delivery capabilities and its moneyminting Amazon Web Services cloud computing business.
The numbers are generally in line with
Amazons past hiring plans. Amazon,
which had a total of 306,800 full-time and
part-time employees globally at the end of
September, hired a total of 123,700 globally during the 15 months ended in
September, according to quarterly filings.


Amazon said Thursday its
U.S. workforce has grown
from 30,000 in 2011 to over
180,000 at the end of 2016.
By comparison, Walmart
the worlds largest retailer
employs about 2.4 million
people worldwide, including
1.5 million workers in the
Sebastian said the announce-

ment shows that Amazons hiring appears

to be accelerating.
We view this announcement positively
in terms of the current trajectory of
Amazons businesses, as well as managements confidence in the long-term outlook, he said. The hiring is consistent
with our view that Amazon will continue to
invest aggressively in its retail, media,
technology and logistics businesses.

The news comes a month after Presidentelect Donald Trump met with tech leaders,
including Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
Throughout the presidential election campaign Trump and Bezos clashed after Trump
attacked Bezos and The Washington Post,
which Bezos owns. But they appeared to
make nice when Bezos attended the meeting
in December.
Sean Spicer, the incoming White House
press secretary, noted in a call with
reporters on Thursday that Amazon made the
announcement after the meeting, when
Trump urged tech leaders to keep jobs in the

to his diagnosis.

Stanford is starting to find out, tracking the everyday lives of several dozen
volunteers wearing devices that monitor more than mere activity.
He envisions one day having wearables that act as a sort of check
engine light indicating its time to see
the doctor.
One way to look at this is, these are

Court revives suit alleging

Apple monopoly on iPhone apps
appeals court has revived a lawsuit
accusing Apple of having an illegal
monopoly on the sale of iPhone apps.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
said Thursday the plaintiffs have the
right to sue Apple because they purchased apps directly from the company.
Apple had argued that it did not sell
apps, but instead acted as an intermediary used by the app developers.
The ruling overturned a lower court
decision dismissing the lawsuit.

An email to Apple was not immediately returned.

Dons, Cats settle for draw

By Nathan Mollat

The consensus among the Woodside and

Aragon girls soccer coaches following
their teams scoreless draw Thursday was:
hey, a tie beats a loss.
Knowing that every point gained this
season during PAL play will be crucial to
winning a division title or even an automatic Central Coast Section berth three
points for a win, one for a tie both
Woodside coach Jose Navarrete and
Aragons Nick Dye were more or less satisfied coming away with a point.

The Dons were playing their first game

since before Christmas, having their opener against Burlingame rained out Tuesday.
The lack of time together showed as they
struggled to find a rhythm.
Rhythm and routine is huge, Dye said.
And even though Woodside is going
through a rebuilding stage this season, Dye
admitted the four-time defending PAL
champ still has a target on its back.
Woodside is still a name and we got a
point off them, Dye said.
Woodsides Navarrete said calling this
season a rebuild for his side would be kind.
If it was a rebuilding year, wed be in
great shape, Navarrete said.

fact the Wildcats didnt get their first win of

No one is expecting us to do anything,
Navarrete said. A win is always good, but
Aragon is a good team and we played
Aragon to a tie.

Rising PGA Tour star Thomas joins 59 club

By Doug Ferguson

HONOLULU Fresh of his victory on

Maui, Justin Thomas became the seventh
player to join the 59 Club on the PGA Tour
when he made a 15-foot eagle putt on his last
hole Thursday at the Sony Open for an 11under 59.
Thomas thought his hopes at a 59 were over

when his drive on the par5 ninth hole at Waialae

Country Club was a foot
from clearing a fairway
bunker on the left and
rolled back into the sand.
He figured he couldnt
reach the green until realizing Daniel Berger hit 4Justin Thomas iron from the bunker onto

the green.
Thomas figured this wasnt a time to lay
He hit 5-iron clean and pure, and it settled
15 feet below the cup. Wasting little time over
the putt, he poured it in for 59 and lightly
pumped his fist. The excitement came from
Berger and Jordan Spieth, and only when
Thomas looked at their reaction did it begin to
sink in.

I got more excited from seeing them get

excited, he said.

Welcome to LA, Bolts. Youre no longer

While their franchise value soars and their

among the roughly 19 million people who
inhabit the five counties around Los
Angeles, the nations second-largest city.
Chargers owner Dean Spanos first public
comments acknowledged the difficulty of
the task theyve accepted in leaving San
Diego after 56 years.
Our entire organization knows that we
have a tremendous amount of work to do,
Spanos said. We must earn the respect and
support of LA football fans. We must get
back to winning. And we must make a meaningful contribution, not just on the field,
but off the field as a leader and champion for
the community. The Chargers are determined to fight for LA, and we are excited to
get started.

Even among die-hard NFL fans,

the Chargers will be at least a
distant third-place team in their
two-team market next fall. The
Rams have a generational fan
base that never gave up on
them during 21 years in St. Louis,
and the Raiders are still wildly
popular in Los Angeles from
their 1982-94 run at the
run at the Coliseum along with that outlaw franchises status as a California
lifestyle brand as much as a sports team.
But one intriguing aspect of the Chargers
machinations is their choice to play their
next two seasons at StubHub Center, the LA
Galaxys compact soccer stadium in suburban Carson. Even with an expansion in
capacity to 30,000 seats, it will be small by
NFL standards or even by some Texas
high school football standards.
The Chargers and the Galaxys owners,
sports conglomerate AEG, have plans for
expansion and improvement of the modest
facilities around StubHub. Yet playing in a
small stadium should protect the Chargers
from the unpleasant optics of thousands of
empty seats while they attempt to build a
fan base.
The Raiders annual road game against the
AFC West rival Chargers should be a fascinating sight this fall, but the Chargers hope
theyll benefit from their temporary home
by providing an unusually intimate setting
for fans and whatever ticket prices the
market will bear.
I would like to commend the Chargers on
this bold and innovative decision to move
to StubHub Center, AEG President and CEO
Dan Beckerman said. It is truly a testament
to how strongly the Chargers feel about the
fan experience and their willingness to create something special for people in
Southern California.
The Rams were ripped on social media and
by rival fans for empty seats this season at
the cavernous Coliseum, which doesnt
look full even with 80,000 people in attendance. The Chargers games will be packed
by comparison even if the crowds are
one-third of the Rams turnouts.
The Chargers training complex is
expected to be in Costa Mesa, 40 miles
southeast of Los Angeles amid the Orange
County fan base often cited by the Chargers
as evidence of their appeal in the area.



UConn streak among

best in sports history
By Pat Eaton-Robb

STORRS, Conn. UConns womens basketball team is on the verge of winning its
91st straight game, which would break its own
NCAA Division I record that was set between
2008 and 2010. The Huskies play Saturday at
SMU, a team that is 10-6 and just lost to
Tulane. UConns streak ranks among the most
impressive in sports, but there are plenty of
others. Heres a look at some of them:

UConns women dont own the longest winning streak in college sports history, or even
in the state of Connecticut. That streak
belongs to the Trinity mens squash team. The
Bantams won 252 consecutive matches,
including 13 national championships,
between February 1998 and January, 2012,
when they lost to rival Yale.

Wayland Baptist-Womens basketball

The Huskies also dont own the longest
streak in womens college basketball.
Wayland Baptist in Plainview, Texas, won
131 straight between 1953 and 1958, when
the Flying Queens finally lost in the AAU
national semifinals to their rivals, the
Nashville Business College. Their streak
included four straight AAU national championships.

UCLA-Mens basketball
UConns streaks are most often compared to
the 88-game benchmark put up by John
Wooden and the UCLA men between 1971 and
1974. There are parallels. Both programs are
considered the best in the history of their
sport. UCLA won 10 titles during the Wooden
era. UConn and Auriemma have 11. UCLA
won the final three of its seven consecutive
titles during the winning streak. UConn has
won four straight, two during the streak.

Oklahoma-College football
Oklahoma went more than three seasons
without losing or tying a game. Their 47 con-

secutive wins between 1953 and 1957 is seven

games longer than the second longest major
college football streak, put up by Washington
between 1908 and 1914. Alabama, by comparison, won 26 straight before losing to
Clemson on Monday.

New England Patriots-NFL

New England won 21 straight games
between October 2003 and October 2004,
including two playoff games and a Super Bowl
(32-29 over Carolina). The Patriots streak
was broken in 2004 by Pittsburgh. But the
Patriots recovered to go 14-2 that season and
beat the Eagles for a second consecutive title.

Edwin Moses-Track and field

Moses holds perhaps the most impressive
individual winning streak. The two-time
Olympic champion hurdler won 122 consecutive 400-meter races, including 107 straight
finals between August 1977 and June 1987.
Moses was 31 years old when he lost to fellow
American Danny Harris, who was 10 years
younger, at a meet in Spain.

Byron Nelson-Golf
Byron Nelson dominated the PGA Tour in
1945, winning 18 tournaments, including an
unprecedented 11 in a row. The closest any
other golfer has come to that record is seven
straight, accomplished by Tiger Woods 2006
and 2007.

Martina Mavratilova-Tennis
Martina Navratilova won 74 straight matches in 1984, including 13 straight tournaments. She also holds the doubles streak
record with Pam Shriver. The pair won 109
straight matches between 1983 and 1985.

Vonn taking a lot of risk

returning with broken arm
By Eric Willemsen

Lindsey Vonn is taking a lot of risk of
doing more damage to her right arm when
she returns to World Cup skiing this weekend, nine weeks after breaking her right
upper arm.
Surgery has made the arm more vulnerable
to another fracture if she has to break a fall,
the four-time overall champion said on
For the rest of my career there will definitely be a lot of risk, Vonn said. The plate
is stable but obviously above the plate my
arm is susceptible to
another fracture. As I
have already a plate in
there, it becomes a very
complicated surgery if I
were to do that.
Vonn would have to fly
back immediately to the
clinic in Vail, Colorado,
Lindsey Vonn where she underwent surgery in November, in
case it happens.
They have to be either taking out the
plate and do another plate, or two plates on
top of each other, the American said. That
is a very complicated surgery.
Vonn suffered the injury in a training crash
on Copper Mountain, Colorado, while
recovering from a left knee injury that ended
her last season prematurely in February.
Late Wednesday, Vonn revealed she struggled with nerve damage so severe she couldnt even move her fingers soon after the surgery in November. She posted a 5 1/2-minute
video on her Facebook page which showed
glimpses of her nine-week rehab. The video
had more than one million views the following day.
Vonn said on Thursday she was very

scared whether she would be able to use her

hand in a normal way again. Two months
later, she was still hampered in daily life by
its reduced mobility, but was able to hold her
ski pole as the grip is strong.
In races, she was not planning to wear special protection except for double paddings
under her race suit.
Its certainly not going to be aerodynamic but it will be protective somewhat, Vonn
A record 76-time winner, Vonns return was
postponed for a day after downhill training
was canceled on Thursday because of bad
weather. The final training was scheduled for
Friday, though more snowfall was forecast.
I am going crazy if we are not able to
race, said Vonn, who was accompanied by
one of her dogs, spaniel Lucy, during a news
conference. As it was broadcast live on
Austrian TV, she answered most questions in
Asked about her goals, Vonn said she
believed she could still win the downhill and
super-G title despite missing half of the season.
I really look at it with the perspective of
last year, she said. I won the downhill title
and I didnt finish in two races and I missed
one. There are three (downhill) races I missed
so far this season and only two super-G
races. I definitely think its possible.
It depends how Ilka (Stuhec) and Lara
(Gut) do, but if I can consistently be fast,
then I have a good chance.
The knee fractures and broken arm were the
latest setbacks in a career that has been
marred by injuries. Various injuries forced
her out of the world championships in 2007,
11 and 13, and she missed the 2014 Sochi
Olympics. Still, Vonn said she would compete as long as ski racing brings her joy.
To me ski racing is like air: I need it, the
adrenalin, the speed, she said. I love it
more than anything else.

Harlem Globetrotters
The games were a lot more exhibition than
competition, but the Harlem Globetrotters lay
claim to an 8,829-game winning streak that
ran between 1971 and 1995. The streak was
ended in Vienna, Austria by an all-star team led
by Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Rams make McVay youngest head coach ever in NFL

By Greg Beacham

LOS ANGELES The Los Angeles Rams

have made Sean McVay the youngest head
coach in modern NFL history, and he
appears to be getting some experienced
The Rams on Thursday hired McVay, who
turns 31 on Jan. 24. Several hours later, reported the Rams have finalized
a deal with 69-year-old Wade Phillips to be
their defensive coordinator, although the
team declined to confirm it.
McVay has been the Washington
Redskins offensive coordinator since 2014.
He will replace Jeff Fisher, who was fired 13
games into the Rams homecoming season
in Los Angeles, and interim head coach John
Fassel, who led the Rams to a 4-12 finish in
their 13th consecutive non-winning season.
The accomplishments and success that he
has had in less than a decade in our league are

Gillaspie, Giants agree to $1.4
million, one-year contract
SAN FRANCISCO Third baseman
Conor Gillaspie and the San Francisco
Giants have agreed to a $1.4 million, oneyear contract, a raise from his $1 million
salary last year.
The sides avoided arbitration, and the deal
was announced Wednesday night.
Gillaspie had a great spring training last
year then briefly began in the minors before
re-joining the Giants in his second stint
with San Francisco. Then, he became an
unlikely September and playoff star as an
injury replacement, no less.
He hit a three-run homer off Jeurys

California, Thompson will have his jersey
retired at Santa Margarita Catholic High

Sean McVay

McVay spent the past three seasons as Jay
Grudens offensive coordinator with the
Redskins. He has been an assistant since
2010 in Washington, where he worked with
Gruden and Bill Callahan to build a prolific
offense led by quarterback Kirk Cousins.
McVays most important task is likely to
be the transformation of No. 1 overall pick
Jared Goff into a star after his rough rookie
campaign behind a struggling offensive
Familia in the ninth
inning of a 3-0 wild-card
win at New York.
Gillaspies catch over
the railing and into the
photo well in Game 162
against the Dodgers will
be remembered, too. Vin
Scully called it superiConor Gillaspie or in his final broadcast.
Gillaspie would earn an additional
$50,000 if he is elected to start in the AllStar Game and $25,000 if he is selected as a
reserve. He also would get $50,000 each if
he wins a Gold Glove or Sliver Slugger,
$75,000 if he is League Championship
Series MVP and $100,000 apiece if he is
MVP or World Series MVP.
... Golden State is 12-1 vs. the Eastern
Conference this season and also won at
Detroit on Dec. 23. ... Andre Iguodala has
gone a career-best five games without a
turnover topping his previous best from
Dec. 30, 2014, to Jan. 7, 2015. He leads the
league in assist-to-turnover ratio. ... The
Warriors announced they had parted ways
with former San Francisco Police Chief
Greg Suhr after just having hired him as a
consultant to advise the organization
regarding certain security matters related to
the teams ground breaking ceremony occurring in San Francisco next Tuesday.

Rams Super Bowl championship home to Los


Really happy for Sean McVay! Cousins

The Rams made the eye-catching move on
the same day that the Chargers announced
their relocation to Los Angeles to share the
Rams $2.6 billion stadium. The Chargers
are still without a coach, and the Rams
grabbed some of their headlines by snagging one of the most interesting names on
the coaching market.
I am incredibly honored by this opportunity, McVay said in a statement, thanking
Kroenke and Rams chief operating officer
Kevin Demoff. Collectively, we are committed to building a championship-caliber
team, and Im excited to start that process
and make our fans proud.
McVay wowed the Rams top brass during
two recent interviews, but he is an unorthodox choice for the franchise, which hasnt
taken many extraordinary risks during
Kroenkes tenure. While McVay is respected
as an up-and-coming NFL mind, he has

understandably meager experience, including none as a head coach at any level of football.
Lane Kiffin was 31 years old when the
Oakland Raiders hired him in January 2007.
That hire didnt work out so well, but perhaps risks are in order to snap the Rams out
of their 12-year playoff drought.
Theyve made the playoffs just four times
in the last 27 years, all during a five-year
span in St. Louis from 1999-2003, and they
havent had a winning record in Los Angeles
since 1989.
Los Angeles has the NFLs youngest roster, but McVay is still younger than Rams
defensive linemen William Hayes. McVay
doesnt inherit an enormous amount of elite
talent beyond Pro Bowl defensive lineman
Aaron Donald and other topflight defensive
players, but the Rams are eager to build a
winning team heading into their new stadium in Inglewood, which they will share with
the Chargers beginning in 2019.

Three Giants remain eligible for arbitration and are set to swap proposed salaries
with the team Friday: right-hander George
Kontos, third baseman Eduardo Nunez and
left-hander Will Smith.

Trevor Bauer and the Cleveland Indians met

The enigmatic right-hander, whose best
season in the majors was tarnished by a
postseason drone accident in 2016, avoided

Woodside (0-0-1, 1-5-2) that had the better

The Wildcats had the best chance of the day

Thats when all hell broke loose. Kayla Hart

Before she got hurt, Kenney did a tremendous job of keeping Woodside off the scoreboard because, after struggling for the first 20

Classic) and Stuart Appleby (2010
Greenbrier Classic).
This was special because he made it look
so easy.
Thomas, a 23-year-old with enormous
power for his 145-pound frame, never hit
more than a 7-iron into the par 4s at Waialae
on a perfect day for scoring very little
breeze, fast fairways and soft greens. That 7iron was chipped under the trees and into a
bunker on No. 8 when he was trying to save
His only bogey came on his second hole,
the par-3 11th, when his tee shot went into a
bunker and he missed an 18-foot par putt.
Duval was the only other player to shoot
59 with an eagle on the last hole. Furyk at
Conway Farms is the only other player to
shoot 59 with a bogey.
Spieth, best friends with Thomas since
they were 13, was more nervous than
Thomas and far more demonstrative.
Thomas had a 30-foot birdie putt on No. 7
that looked good even when it was inches
from the cup until burning the edge. Spieth
clutched the back of his neck and was still
asking how the putt didnt fall when he

It was awesome. What an awesome last five
rounds hes had.
Just four days ago, Thomas closed birdiebirdie for a 69 to win the SBS Tournament of
Champions at Kapalua. He started his round
Thursday at Waialae by pitching in from 35
yards for an eagle on the short 10th hole.
And he was off.
All my birdies were easy, Thomas said.
He was smashing drives when he could,
especially on the par-5 18th hole when he
found an extra long tee and hammered a high
hook that left him only an 8-iron into the
green. He narrowly holed that for eagle, settling for a 29. Then, he went birdie-birdie to
start the front nine, and when he hit 7-iron
to 5 feet for birdie on the par-3 fourth hole,
the race was on to hit golfs magic number.
He had full control of his golf swing,
Spieth said.

on Thursday that its investigation

According to a U.S. military
statement, the investigation
determined, regretfully, that 33
civilians were killed and 27 wounded as troops responded to fire from
Taliban who were using civilian

houses as firing positions.

After the raid, Kunduz residents
carried over a dozen corpses of the
dead, including children and family members of the Taliban fighters, toward a local governors
office in a show of rage.
Regardless of the circumstances, I deeply regret the loss of
innocent lives, the statement
quoted Gen. John Nicholson, commander of U. S. Forces in
Afghanistan. On this occasion
the Taliban chose to hide amongst
civilians and then attacked Afghan
and U.S. forces.
I wish to assure President
(Ashraf) Ghani and the people of
Afghanistan that we will take all
possible measures to protect
Afghan civilians, Nicholson
added. We will continue to assist
the Afghan security forces in their
efforts to defend their country.
But a Kunduz official told the
Associated Press that the Afghan
civilian death toll in the U.S. military probe was less than what
local authorities had.

His family waited in their home

enough to venture out on the
streets, he said.
On Tuesday, Lt. Gen. Talib
Shaghati told the Associated Press
the whole city could be recaptured
from IS in another three months, or
less. When the operation began in
October, Iraqi leaders had predicted
they would retake the city before
2017 began, but progress has been
slow amid fierce counterattacks

from the extremists.

streets, armored military vehicles

One group of soldiers carried a
metal chair a seemingly ordinary object until a closer look
revealed that cuff-like restraints
had been welded to its arms and
legs. The soldiers said they said
they recovered it from an IS prison.
They used this for torture, said
special forces Col. Ali Kenani.
The clamp was used to hold a

the streets were precarious:
Markets like this one still get hit

of presidential win in 96
By Karel Janicek

PRAGUE Nearly 30 years

ago, Donald Trump was confident
he would win the U.S. presidential
election as an independent in
1996, according to recently
Czechoslovakias Communist-era
secret police.
Czechoslovakia was the home
nation of Trumps first wife,
Ivana, a model, athlete and businesswoman who became the mother of his three oldest children:
Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric.
A year before the 1989 collapse
of communism in many parts of
Europe, details about Ivana
Trumps 1988 visit back to her
homeland were recorded in a classified police report. The Oct. 22,
1988, report claimed that Trump
refused to run for president in 1988

despite alleged pressure to do so

because he felt, at 42, he was
too young. But the secret report
said he intended to run in the 1996
U.S. presidential race as an independent, when he would be 50.
Even though it looks like a
utopia, D. TRUMP is confident he
will succeed, the police report
said, based on information from
an unspecified source who talked
to Ivana Trumps father, Milos
Zelnicek, about her visit.
It was unclear where the alleged
pressure was coming from.
The report is interesting
because, in the United States,
there was little public knowledge
that Trump would consider a presidential run until a 1988 interview
on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
I would never want to rule it out
totally, he said then.
I think Id win, he added. I
wouldnt go in to lose.

Star of 24 sequel welcomes

chance to create black hero
By Lynn Elber

PASADENA The clock is

ticking and the nations fate
again is at stake in 24:
Legacy, a sequel to Foxs
white-knuckle drama series.
But this time the hero is
African-American and that
matters, says the shows star
and producers.

In television, to be a hero
and look like I look, that really stuck with me, said Corey
Hawkins, who plays Eric
Carter, an ex-Army Ranger
whos drawn into a fierce new
battle at home.
Now that hes helping create
a character thats not typically
black, the actor said, Carters
ethnicity will be more than
skin deep.

We have to honor where he

comes from, not just his skin
color but wheres hes from,
the southeast area of
Hawkins, whos also a native
of the city. Thats the authenticity.
Theres pressure in taking
over the lead from longtime
24 franchise lead Kiefer
Sutherland, who played U.S.

counter-terrorism agent Jack

Bauer, Hawkins acknowledged during a Q&A session
with TV critics Wednesday.
Uh, yeah. Id be crazy to
say there wasnt any pressure, he said. If the challenge wasnt there, theres no
reason to say yes to the role.

Flavor of buffalo wings without the chicken

By Melissa dArabian

Baked meatballs are a great way to get both the flavor and fun of buffalo wings without the
fried chicken skin derailing our nutritious eating.

Ive loved chicken wings since long

before they were ever a cute little bar menu
item, looking more like tiny drumsticks
than an actual Z-shaped wing.
My mom, a savvy penny-pinching college student when I was born, included
chicken wings on our weekly dinner menu
rotation throughout my childhood; fried
chicken skin was practically a major food
group. In college, when I discovered spicy,
buttery buffalo wings, I was in pool-hall
Now, as an adult, I still love all things
buffalo-flavored. Ill pour spicy sauce
straight from the bottle onto anything from
roasted cauliflower to scrambled eggs.
Meatballs, which are a big favorite around
our house, are no exception.
Meatballs are an excellent family menu
staple I just swap out flavors according
to our tastes (and pantry), and even make a
bunch ahead of time to keep in the freezer
for busy weeknights. They are also an ideal
appetizer treat for events like movie night
or watching Sunday football.
Turns out, baked meatballs are a great way
to get both the flavor and fun of buffalo
wings without the fried chicken skin derailing our nutritious eating. Lean ground beef

is my favorite meat to use (96 percent lean

beef offers over 20 grams of protein for
fewer than 6 grams of fat per 4-ounce serving), but ground turkey also works great.
Adding blue cheese and spicy buffalo sauce
straight into the meatball means a complete
visit to buffalo heaven all in one non-fried
Try using a small ice-cream scoop to
measure out even meatballs, and then bake
on a parchment-lined baking sheet or in a
mini-muffin pan sprayed with nonstick
Sometimes I dunk the cooked meatballs
in extra sauce, rendering them too messy
and spicy for my kiddos, but perfect for me,
who doesnt mind going through multiple
napkins in a sitting. But for the average
meatball eater watching the game, lets call
swimming in sauce an optional, if delicious, step.


Start to finish: 30 minutes
Servings: 10 servings, 2 meatballs each
1 egg white
3 tablespoons spicy buffalo sauce (like
Franks, or hot chili sauce)
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic

catering order of $200 or more.

Judge: Appeals holding up
Prince estate determination
CHASKA, Minn. The Minnesota judge overseeing
Princes estate will wait for appeals to be exhausted before
making a final determination on who will
inherit a fortune that could be worth
around $200 million, he said at a hearing
But Carver County District Judge Kevin
Eide also made it clear the late superstars
six confirmed siblings are the likely
heirs. Prince left no known will when he
died in April of a painkiller overdose. The
judge already has rejected claims from
several other people to be Princes child,
sibling or wife.
The court cannot make a determination of who the heirs
are until these appeals are exhausted, Eide said. That
process typically takes several months or more.
Princes sister, Tyka Nelson, and his five half-siblings
also want Comerica Bank and Trust to take over running the
estate from temporary special administrator Bremer Trust.
Attorneys for the two institutions said they expect a handover at the end of the month.
Eide also heard testimony but did not immediately rule on
whether he should appoint an individual as a co-personal
representative, or co-executor, to act in part as a gobetween Princes siblings and Comerica.

Extra sauce for dunking, if desired

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, use a fork
to mix together the egg white, buffalo
sauce, paprika, garlic and salt and pepper until blended. Add the beef and mix
well with your hands. Then mix in the
blue cheese and breadcrumbs. Let sit
for 5 minutes.
If mixture is too wet to form into
balls, add in another tablespoon or
two of breadcrumbs. Form the meat
into golf-sized balls, and place on
lined baking sheet. (Or use a mini-muffin pan sprayed with nonstick spray.)
Spray the meatballs lightly with oil

from the mister (or nonstick spray).

Bake 15 minutes and then remove from
the oven.
Mix together the melted butter and
buffalo sauce in a small bowl. Turn the
meatballs, and brush with the basting
sauce. Return to the oven until cooked
through, about 5 more minutes. If
desired, toss the meatballs in extra
sauce in a large bowl (optional, but
tasty and messy!).

Anna Diop, who plays Carters wife,
said all viewers should find the couple
familiar, race notwithstanding.
Im hoping people see this and see
themselves in these characters and it
transcends us being black, Diop said,
adding that her character, Nicole, is
trying to support her husband and
remain true to her own beliefs.

Jimmy Smits as a U. S. senator and
presidential hopeful, Miranda Otto
as a former counter-terrorism unit
head and Ashley Thomas as Carters

drug-dealer brother.
The familiar elements, including
episodes that play out by the clock, are
there for good reason, the shows producers said. The approach remains a
brilliant propulsive engine, said
series creator Evan Katz.
24: Legacy also is bringing back
the character of Tony Almeida, played
by Carlos Bernard.
Katz said that reflects what a
dynamic actor and presence Bernard
is and his characters compelling
nature. When he asked himself which
of the former characters he wanted to
see again, Katz said, it was Tony.

office in a few days, Moore said, noting hes heard complaints of racial
incidents at restaurants and high

how to live a life that honors the values hard-fought for by leaders of the

Moore noted it feels as though Donald
Trumps rise to the presidency and
heightened racial tensions detract
from the efforts to create a society
that welcomes diversity.
Sometimes when we take two steps
forward, we end up taking a step
back, Moore said. We have to deal
with these things and remember the
many accomplishments of Dr. King,
not only Dr. King but many of the

40s, 50s and 60s in terms of what
they went through. Some of them

Its so vital to remember Martin

stood for was equality and nonviolence. Its more so now than ever
before, Webb said. Because theres
so much violence out there and you
dont want that to be the status quo.
You dont want your kids thinking

move will allow his team to create the
gym they have always wanted to build.
Because his business was two years
into its second 20-year lease on 2075
Broadway when Lane Partners came
forward with their proposal, the developer said they would facilitate his
business move.
The gym that were going to build
is a million-dollar gym, said
Svelflohn is preparing to move his
gym across the street in the next three
to six months. The new Powerhouse
Gym will feature brand-new locker
rooms, showers and equipment as well
as a separate room for yoga and aerobics activities.
When we moved [into Redwood
City], there was literally nothing else
in Redwood City thats still there. It
was a pretty blank landscape, except
for us, he said. Were really fortunate
to move right across the street.

Clotilde Carcamo
Case Number: 16PRO00662
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of Clotilde Carcamo. A Petition for Probate has been filed by Jorge
E. Carcamo in the Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo. The Petition for Probate requests that Jorge E.
Carcamo be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of
the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the
Independent Administration of Estates
Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions
without obtaining court approval. Before
taking certain very important actions,
however, the personal representative will
be required to give notice to interested
persons unless they have waived notice
or consented to the proposed action.)
The independent administration authority
will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and
shows good cause why the court should
not grant the authority.
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: February 01, 2017
at 9:00 a.m., Department 28, Superior
Court of California, County of San Mateo,
400 County Center, Redwood City, CA
If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the
Calilfornia Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under sectioin
9052 of the Callifornia Probate
Code.Other California statutes and legal
authority may affect your rights as a
creditor. You may want to consult with an
attorney knowledgable in California law.
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court a
Request for Special Notice (form DE154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.

favor of building more retail space.
The foundation hopes to use funding from
a variety of sources such as the city and
county of San Mateo plus a loan to construct the facility estimated to cost between
$12 million and $16 million, according to
the city report. The proposal includes an
indoor facility with at least two sheets of
ice, locker rooms, a training center, restaurant, parking and youth homework center.
The U.S. Badminton Center Group also
expressed interest in building a facility
housing between 20 and 50 badminton
courts, wellness center, training facility and
a variety of other amenities at the driving
range owned and operated by the city.
A committee comprised of Councilwoman
Donna Colson, City Manager Lisa
Augustine, Public Works Director Syed
Murtuza and Parks and Recreation Director
Margaret Glomstad reviewed all applications for the site and indicated they preferred Topgolfs proposal due to its financially feasibility and potential to draw revenue.

unleashed burbling waterfalls in southern
deserts, and doubled the vital snowpack in
the Sierra Nevada in little more than a week.
Declaring California as a whole to be past
its official three-year drought emergency
will be up to Gov. Jerry Brown, who will
probably wait until the end of the winter
rain and snow season to make that decision.
But for people in northern cities such as
Sacramento, where state workers opened
flood gates to ease pressure on levees for
the first time in a dozen years, releasing a
two-mile-wide torrent of excess water from
the surging Sacramento River, the call on
declaring the dry spell over in Northern
California looked much clearer.
Its hard to say we have a drought here
right now, said Jay Lund, director of the
Center for Watershed Sciences at the
University of California at Davis.
Lund spoke as he returned from taking students to see the wrenched-open, century-old
flood gates in Sacramento, which got its
heaviest rain in 20 years this week.

Whether it be through an agreement

with a for-profit or not-for-profit entity,
the preferred solution for the Golf Center
site would maximize use of the property and
availability of recreational activities for
the broadest spectrum of the citys residents and visitors, according to the report.
The committee feels the Topgolf proposal
best fulfills these attributes, while also presenting the maximum amount of return to
the city in the form of a relatively secure
lease agreement. The other two proposals
provide significantly less in guaranteed
Topgolf is a chain entertainment company with centers across the nation offering
patrons an opportunity to play golf-style
chipping games amidst a sports bar setting.
The Topgolf proposal included a 65,000square-foot facility with 102 hitting bays,
3,000 square feet of event space, a full
restaurant and bar, pool tables, shuffle
board and more. The center would be built on
the existing Golf Center site and offer entertainment, food, music, golf lessons, summer camps, tournaments and leagues,
according to the report.
Ice rink advocates claim building the center adjacent to the hearty network of hotels
along the Bayshore would present a wide
appeal for hockey and skating enthusiasts
who would travel to Burlingame and stay for

tournaments over the weekend.

These ice rinks are regional amenities,
said Strambi. The opportunity is not just a
great amenity for residents, but it will also
bring business and commerce to
Jeremy Verba and Dina Artzt, coordinators
of the Committee to Save the Bridgepointe
Ice Rink, expressed a similar sentiment.
The two-rink facility will attract skaters
and their families from all over the country
when there are tournaments and skating
competitions, especially being in such
close proximity to an airport, said the two
in a joint statement from the organization
which also advocates for local ice rink
But Anne LeClair, president of the San
Mateo County/Silicon Valley Convention
and Visitors Bureau, offered an alternative
Our sales team here believes Topgolf
would be of enormous benefit to the area
hotels. It is an ideal off-site event location
and selling point for the hotels and offers
conference attendees a place to go and have
fun on their own, as well, she said in an
email. Having been to the ones in both
Scottsdale and Austin, I can attest to
Topgolf facilities being a great draw for visitors and a great destination for local families of all ages.

She noted the bureau has not adopted a formal position on the issue, but a group of
local hoteliers wrote a letter to the council
expressing their support for Topgolf as
We are all in support of the Topgolf
application over any other proposed entertainment uses, according to a letter signed
by executives at the Hyatt Regency, Crowne
Plaza, San Mateo Marriott and other local
LeClair said Topgolf would meet the needs
of corporate groups seeking amenities adjacent to the hotels east of Highway 101, in
an area otherwise starved for entertainment
The committee examining the proposals
explored an opportunity to share the site
between applicants, but found parking
restrictions precluded such an alternative,
according to the report.
Ultimately, officials concluded Topgolf
would serve as the highest and best use of
the site.
Topgolf is a proven, successful and profitable brand name business with operations
around the country, and they have prior
experience working with municipalities,
according to the report.
The Burlingame City Council meets 7
p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 17, at City Hall, 501
Primrose Road.

The weekly drought report by federal and

academic water experts showed 42 percent
of the state had emerged from drought. This
time last year, only 3 percent of California
was out of drought.
Southern California, which is also receiving welcome rain from the storms, remains
in drought but experienced a dramatic reduction in severity.
Just 2 percent of the entire state, a swath
between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara,
remains in the sharpest category of drought
that includes drying wells, reservoirs and
streams and widespread crop losses. Fortythree percent of the state was in that direst
category this time a year ago.
The Cachuma reservoir near still-arid
Santa Barbara was at just 8 percent of capacity, even as authorities at Northern
Californias Shasta Dam opened spillways
for the first time in six years to make room
for more water to come.
Like many people in Northern California,
winery tasting-room supervisor Nate Hayes
went out to marvel when this weeks heavy
rains started and enjoyed taking his canoe
down the flooded streets of his town of
Rohnert Park.
By Thursday, Hayes and others were tired

of the rockslides and mudslides complicating commutes and the round-the-clock

downpours keeping everyone inside.
Were all really excited for the rain,
Hayes said. But at the same time we kind of
want it to be over.
Forecasters said the heaviest of storms
fueled by an atmospheric river weather
phenomenon had passed after delivering the
biggest downpours in a decade.
Everything is on the way down, said
Steve Anderson, a meteorologist at the
National Weather Service office in
A rare Sierra blizzard at the start of the
week brought the mountains their heaviest
snowfall in six years. Runoff from the
mountains provides Californians with much
of their year-round water supply. Stations up
and down the mountain chain were reporting
twice the amount of normal rain and snow
for this time of year.
Overall, reservoirs were brimming above
average for the first time in six years.
Its been so wet in some places this winter we would do pretty well even if it tapered
off right now, said Daniel Swain, a fellow
at the University of California at Los
Angeles whose weather blog has been a

closely watched chronicle of the drought.

Water experts look at factors including
soil moisture, stream levels and snowpack
in determining drought, said Claudia Faunt,
a San Diego-based hydrologist with the
U.S. Geological Survey.
At the peak of the drought in 2014 and
2015, urban Californians were under a
mandatory 25 percent water conservation
order from Brown. Threatened native
species suffered as waterways shriveled.
More than 100 million trees in the Sierra
Nevada died.
Warming temperatures associated with
climate change increasingly are eating
away at the Sierra snowpack. Californias
underground water reserves have been so
depleted by extra pumping that they would
take decades, at a minimum, to replenish.
With nearly 40 million urban water users
and a huge agricultural industry, drought in
California is part nature and part human
behavior, said Bill Patzert, a climatologist
at NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Are these storms giving us drought
relief? No doubt, but its a quick fix. In the
long term, solving the drought problem in
California will be a political problem,
Patzert said.
