County looks to in-laws for housing options


Supervisors ease regulations, consider ready-made design templates
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

In a growing toolbox of ways to


address the regions housing crisis, San Mateo County officials
are looking to make in-law units
more affordable and easier to
build.

Like
many
jurisdictions
throughout California, the county
is updating its rules to meet new
state mandates promoting secondary units as a valuable source of
housing in a region struggling to
keep up with job growth.
But instead of just meeting the
minimum requirements that range

from alleviating parking restrictions to allowing property owners


to forgo public review, San Mateo
County is looking to provide residents with an even simpler path
ready-made architectural templates.
We would provide some examples, some design templates that,

with minimal or no tweaking,


would be preapproved. It saves
you from hiring an architect or a
lot of the fees of an architect, and
it saves you on design costs,
said Will Gibson, a planner with
the county. It doesnt save you
on construction costs, but it
does save a lot of the front end

costs for the applicants.


Officials will create templates
unique to various unincorporated
county neighborhoods, which are
expected to be available by the
years end, Gibson said.

Hillsdale Terrace redevelopment plan
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The density of a controversial


housing proposal for a stretch of
San Mateos El Camino Real has
been reduced after officials realized
the citys citizens initiative
Measure P prohibits more than 68

units on a 1-acre site.


On Tuesday, the San Mateo City
Council will consider the Hillsdale
Terrace project, which seeks to
transform a vacant gas station and
the former Taxis Hamburgers site
into a transit-oriented mixed-use
condominium development.

After partnering with exhibition


creators from San Franciscos
renowned Exploratorium, San
Mateo County Libraries is bringing the interactive Lookmobile to
communities across the region.
The custom mobile trailer is
making stops at the countys various libraries to encourage people
of all ages to learn more about
their community and tinker with a
variety of science- and art-based
exhibits.

Man gets 80 years for murder


San Bruno man shot girlfriend in the back of the head in 2013
By Anna Schuessler
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

A San Bruno man convicted of murdering


his girlfriend in 2013 was sentenced to 80
years to life in prison Friday, according to
the San Mateo County District Attorneys
Office.
Albert Antonio Trejo, 53, who had two
previous felony convictions, was convicted
in June of 2015 of first-degree murder for
shooting his then 36-year-old girlfriend
Cecilia Zamora in the back of the head.
Zamoras body was found at a Pacifica
apartment complex two months after her
mother first reported her missing.
Trejo, Zamora and several other people
lived together in a San Bruno residence and
the two were romantically involved. On Feb.
20, 2013, Zamoras mother reported her
missing to the police and a search was
launched in both San Francisco and San
Mateo counties because she was thought to
possibly be at a cousins home in the city.

Residents last reported


seeing Zamora the morning of Feb. 13, 2013, in
the home with Trejo.
Another occupant reported that Trejo called him,
possibly crying, and
talking about his gun
having gone off. When
Albert Trejo the other residents got
home, Trejo reportedly
was doing laundry and told them Zamora left
after the pair had an argument, according to
the District Attorneys Office.
Victim impact statements describing how
the loss of Zamora affected them were given
by Zamoras mother and her mothers partner
at Trejos sentencing, said District Attorney
Steve Wagstaffe.
Trejos defense attorney John Forsyth said
he believes Trejo is innocent and his client
experienced severe prejudice in the arguments made against him by the prosecution.
We believe that the search of his cell-

phone without a warrant


was illegal. The download
of information from his
cellphone without a warrant was illegal, he said.
Forsyth said testimony
of an expert witness presenting cellphone tracking information would
Cecilia Zamora never pass scientific
muster, and that he plans
to appeal the judges sentence.
Wagstaffe said he was pleased with the
judges sentence, adding he has been to
prison twice.
The wheels of justice moved very slowly
here. Eighty years to life made the wait
worth it, he said. Society gives people
chances. Were a country of second chances.
This defendant took the chances we gave
him and tossed them in the gutter. Its an
important message to society at large on
how we will respond to unjustified violence
such as this.

Sanders backers look to sway Democratic politics from inside


By Michael R. Blood
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES Maybe Bernie Sanders


can change politics from the inside.
The Vermont senators loyalists helped
engineer a show of political muscle in
Democratic Party elections in California
last week, months after Sanders promised
that the populist political movement he
inspired would endure beyond his failed
2016 presidential campaign.
Nurses and other liberal activists, many
faithful to Sanders, flooded local elections
for over 1,100 party delegate slots as part
of a national push to influence party leadership and advance his populist agenda in
the era of Donald Trump.
There is an opportunity here, when a
state reorganizes, to create change from
the inside, said Shannon Jackson, executive director of Our Revolution, the
Sanders-inspired group that said it sent out
over 150, 000 emails and texts urging
party members to participate in the
California contests.
We are going to continue to do this
around the states, Jackson said.
National Nurses United, which endorsed
Sanders in the 2016 campaign, and its
affiliate,
the
California
Nurses
Association, said nurses and other liberal

activists claimed a
majority of the slots up
for grabs, though the
tally had not been finalized by party officials as
of Friday.
The California elections took place as
Democrats, still stunned
Bernie Sanders by Hillary Clintons
defeat in November,
look for a way forward after the Republican
sweep of the White House and Congress.
The independent Sanders, 75, has not ruled
out another presidential run in 2020.
Part of the struggle will play out in the
fight for control of the Democratic
National
Committee.
Meanwhile,
Sanders influence is being witnessed in
places
like
New Jersey,
where
Assemblyman John Wisniewski is running a Sanders-inspired campaign for
governor, and Iowa, where Our Revolution
has endorsed Blair Lawton to lead the state
Democratic Party.
Hes also part of a broader Democratic
effort to counter Republican efforts to
scrap the national health care law, which
includes rallies around the country just
before Trumps inauguration.

socialist mayor of Burlington, Vermont,

Man gets three years for


attacking pregnant girlfriend
A San Mateo man convicted in October of
attacking his pregnant girlfriend after she
threw his game console against a wall was
sentenced Friday to three years in state
prison, according to San Mateo County
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
Charles Ambros Hightower III, 33, was
arrested November 2015 after his landlord
called police to report the sounds of a fight.
He was convicted on one count of felony
domestic violence and one count of felony
assault for choking the woman, who was
pregnant with his baby, throwing her to the
ground and repeatedly kicking and punching her.
The woman was able to grab a large
kitchen knife and stabbed Hightower twice,
but she was unable to stop the attack, prosecutors said.
She eventually escaped after he stopped
hitting her, according to prosecutors.
The prosecution had asked for five years
in prison in light of the violence and
(Hightowers) lack of remorse, Wagstaffe
said.
He was given 200 days credit for time
already served in jail.

Northern California officials


assess heavy storm damage
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Its too soon to


peg a damage estimate from days of
rainy weather that turned streets into
rivers and living rooms into swimming pools throughout Northern
California, state and county officials
said Friday.
In San Benito County south of San
Francisco, where dozens of people
were rescued from flooding homes in a
dramatic early morning operation this
week, workers spent a dry day checking on damage including two streets
and possibly a county bridge, said
Kevin ONeill, the countys emergency services manager.
About 50 houses along Lovers Lane
in the small rural town of Hollister suf-

fered high water damage after a nearby


creek overflowed but no estimate had
been calculated on the cost of the damage.
No homes are in water anymore.
There is still standing water in fields
and stuff, and maybe some outbuildings are affected, he said. The suns
out today, so thats good.
The massive rain and snowfall that
prompted a rare blizzard warning in
parts of the Sierra Nevada was helping
much of Northern California recover
from a six-year drought. The series of
storms has also added 39 billion gallons
of water to Lake Tahoe since Jan. 1.
Mountains near Big Sur in
Monterey County registered more
than 34 inches nearly 3 feet of
rain since Jan. 2, according to the

National Weather Service.


The rain toppled or damaged about
370 trees in San Francisco alone. A
woman was killed by a falling tree
while walking across a golf course in
San Ramon, about 35 miles east of San
Francisco.
In Sonoma County, crews surveyed
damage after the Russian River receded
from its highest level in a decade. The
water spilled into streets and into
homes, forcing residents to travel by
boat.
Kelly Huston, a deputy director with
the Governors Office of Emergency
Services, said Friday that counties
were just starting the process of tabulating costs.
Its likely to take us a little while,
he said in an email.

SACRAMENTO The first chamber of the California


Legislature has confirmed U.S. Rep. Xavier Becerra to be
the states next attorney general.
Democrats in the California Assembly
voted Friday to support the Los Angelesarea Democrat as the states top law
enforcement official.
Becerra has vowed to defend
Californias immigration and climate
change policies against the incoming
Trump administration. He would be
Xavier Becerra Californias first Latino attorney general.
Only one Republican, Assemblyman Rocky Chavez of
Oceanside, voted to support Becerra. Others said they were
not persuaded Becerra would uphold federal law and the
Constitution.
Gov. Jerry Brown nominated Becerra to replace Kamala
Harris earlier this month after she was elected to the U.S.
Senate.
Both houses of the Legislature must approve Becerra. He
faces hearings in the California Senate next week.

Legislatures budget expert


questions Brown deficit forecast
SACRAMENTO The California Legislatures nonpartisan budget expert says Gov. Jerry Browns state revenue
projection is probably overly conservative.
Legislative Analyst Mac Taylor
released his initial analysis of the governors budget Friday. The Democratic
governor has forecast a $1.6 billion
deficit next year because of higher costs
and a sharp drop in income tax revenue.
Brown projected income tax revenue
would grow by 3.3 percent. Taylor says
Jerry Brown that contradicts history and is counter to
the administrations own economic outlook. He says revenue growth would typically exceed 5 percent without a recession or major policy change. He says he
doesnt understand Browns projection of rising stock
prices but slowing capital gains revenue.
Taylor says California could have considerably more
revenue next year than the governor forecasts. He previously forecast a $2.8 billion surplus.

Top Trump aide in frequent
contact with Russias ambassador
WASHINGTON President-elect Donald Trumps national security adviser and Russias ambassador to the U.S. have
been in frequent contact in recent weeks,
including on the day the Obama administration hit Moscow with sanctions in
retaliation for election-related hacking,
a senior U.S. official said Friday.
After initially denying that Michael
Flynn and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak
spoke Dec. 29, a Trump official said late
Friday that the transition team was aware
Michael Flynn of one call on the day President Barack
Obama imposed sanctions.
Its not unusual for incoming administrations to have discussions with foreign governments before taking office.
But repeated contacts just as Obama imposed sanctions
would raise questions about whether Trumps team discussed
or even helped shape Russias response.
Russian President Vladimir Putin unexpectedly did not
retaliate against the U.S. for the move, a decision Trump
quickly praised.

Immigrant groups to rally


against Trumps planned crackdown
WASHINGTON Immigrant rights advocates are planning demonstrations at dozens of rallies across the country
this weekend in what they are calling a first salvo against
President-elect Donald Trumps pledged hard line on immigration.
Union leaders and young immigrants are organizing more
than 50 protests and cultural events from Philadelphia to
Phoenix on Saturday with an aim toward highlighting the
power of the immigrant rights movement. Immigrants living in the country illegally also hope the events will make
it clear to the incoming administration that they dont plan
to leave the country despite Trumps calls for a border wall,
tougher immigration enforcement and mass deportations.
This is our first salvo to what may be a long, drawn out
campaign, said Jorge-Mario Cabrera, spokesman for the
Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles.
The protests mark the latest chapter in a movement that
has evolved considerably since 2006, when more than a
million people took to the streets to protest a Republicanbacked immigration bill that would have made it a crime to
be in the country illegally.

Personal IRS letters nudge


uninsured to get coverage

on Capitol Hill.

Early GOP win on health care


repeal, Congress OKs budget
By Alan Fram and Andrew Taylor
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Ascendant Republicans


drove a budget through Congress on Friday
that gives them an early but critical victory
in their crusade to scrap President Barack
Obamas health care overhaul.
The vote trains the spotlight on whether
they and Donald Trump can deliver on repeated pledges to not just erase that statute but
replace it.
Demonstrating the GOPs willingness to
plunge into a defining but risky battle, the
House used a near party-line 227-198 roll call
to approve a measure that prevents Senate
Democrats from derailing a future bill, thus
far unwritten, annulling and reshaping
Obamas landmark 2010 law. The budget,
which won Senate approval early Thursday,
does not need the presidents signature.
The Unaffordable Care Act will soon be
history! Trump tweeted Friday in a dig at the
statutes name, the Affordable Care Act.
Trump takes the presidential oath next
Friday.
The real work looms in coming months as
the new administration and congressional
Republicans write legislation to erase much
of the health care law and replace it with a
GOP version. Republicans have internal
divisions over what that would look like,
though past GOP proposals have cut much of
the existing laws federal spending and eased
coverage requirements while relying more on
tax benefits and letting states make decisions.

Fridays vote was preceded by debate that


saw hyperbole on both sides and underscored
how the two parties have alternate-universe
views of Obamas overhaul. Democrats
praised it for extending coverage to tens of
millions of Americans, helping families
afford policies and seniors buy prescriptions, while Republicans focused on the rising premiums and deductibles and limited
access to doctors and insurers that have
plagued many.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said the
health care law was so arrogant and so contrary to our founding principles and had not
delivered on Obamas promises to lower
costs and provide more choice.
We have to step in before things get
worse. This is nothing short of a rescue mission, Ryan said.
Our experimentation in Soviet-style central planning of our health care system has
been an abject failure, said freshman Rep.
Jodey Arrington, R-Texas.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, DCalif., said Ryan was peddling mythology
and said the GOP was moving toward worsening health care for consumers.
They want to cut benefits and run. They
want to cut access and run, she said of
Republicans.
This is a sad day in the history of this
country as Republicans begin the process of
destroying health care in America, said Rep.
Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., arguing that the
GOP has no replacement in hand. All you
have is smoke and mirrors, and the American
people are getting ready to get screwed.

WASHINGTON If you havent signed up


for health insurance, you may soon be getting a not-too-subtle nudge from the taxman.
The IRS is sending personalized letters to
millions of taxpayers who might be uninsured, reminding them that they could be on
the hook for hundreds of dollars in fines
under the federal health care law if they dont
sign up soon through HealthCare.gov. Its an
unusual role for a revenue-collection agency.
Fines are one of the most unpopular parts
of the 2010 health overhaul, and theres a
high likelihood theyll get repealed by
Republicans, even if other parts of
Obamacare survive. The administration is
counting on IRS reminders to help sign up as
many people as possible before open enrollment ends Jan. 31. Thats soon after officials
hand off President Barack Obamas signature
program to a Trump administration committed to repeal and replace.
Letters bearing the IRS logo will be sent to
an estimated 7.5 million people who either
claimed an exemption from the laws requirement that most Americans carry health insurance, or who paid a penalty for being uninsured during the 2015 tax year. The coverage
requirement was included in the law as a way
to get healthy people into the insurance
pool, helping to keep premiums in check.
The penalty for this year could be $2,085
or more, depending on family size and
income, says one draft version of the IRS letter. Another draft takes a somewhat different
approach, leaving a blank space for the IRS
to provide an individualized estimate of what
the particular uninsured taxpayer might owe.
The drafts were obtained by the Associated
Press. Although the administration has made
no secret of the IRS role in open enrollment
this year, officials have not responded to

People receiving
these letters have already
made up their minds about
Obamacare when they applied
for an exemption or paid a
penalty. ... They dont want stock
letters. They want better health
care choices and lower costs.
House Ways and Means
Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas

requests for copies of the actual letters.


Republicans say the whole thing is a waste
of money. The campaign will cost about $4
million, say congressional aides.
People receiving these letters have
already made up their minds about Obamacare
when they applied for an exemption or paid a
penalty, said House Ways and Means
Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas. They dont
want stock letters. They want better health
care choices and lower costs.
Supporters of the health care law say
research has shown that many people who
remain uninsured are still unaware that they
can go to HealthCare.gov and qualify for
government subsidies to help pay their premiums. Those subsidies were designed as tax
credits, bringing the IRS into the picture.
The IRS letters make the pitch:
Most people who enroll in a plan through
HealthCare.gov can find plans for $75 a
month or less after financial help, the letters say. At HealthCare.gov, you can compare plans to find one that meets your needs
and budget.
While such low-cost plans are available,
many people actually pay more, and the $75
figure doesnt take into account deductibles
and copayments.

Surge in traffic deaths
outpaces increase in travel
WASHINGTON Traffic deaths surged about 8 percent
in the first nine months of last year, continuing an alarming upward spiral that may be partially explained by more
Americans on the roads due to the economic recovery,
according to National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration estimates released Friday.
The sharp increase comes as drivers are putting more
miles on the road than ever, the government said. But the
rise in deaths is outpacing the increase in travel. Vehicle
miles traveled in the first nine months of 2016 rose about
3 percent.
There were 27,875 deaths in the first three quarters of
last year, compared to 25,808 deaths in the same period in
2015.
Experts believe the increased travel is mostly a result of
an improved economy and low gas prices. But NHTSAs
data experts said increased travel and a better economy
alone cant explain the rise in deaths.
We still have to figure out what is underlying those
lives lost, NHTSA Administrator Mark Rosekind said. If
it was simple, we would already know that.

Fridays action means the fleet of new cars will have to average 51.4 miles per gallon by 2025, up more than 18 mpg from
the 33.2 mpg requirement in 2015, the most recent year available.

Feds: Excessive force a


big problem for Chicago police

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO The Justice Department released the findings of its yearlong investigation into civil rights abuses
by the Chicago Police Department going back years.
The report found that the department has been violating
peoples constitutional rights for years, emphasizing the
use of excessive force and the killing of people who didnt
pose a threat.
The federal agency and city officials will start negotiations on reforms to the Police Department. The talks will
happen after President-elect Donald Trump has taken
office, and his attorney general nominee, Sen. Jeff
Sessions, has expressed concerns about the handling of
such cases by the Justice Department under President
Barack Obamas administration.

WASHINGTON The Environmental


Protection Agency moved Friday to
cement strict fuel economy requirements that force the auto industry to
make new cars and trucks significantly
more efficient, a decision that will be
difficult for the incoming Trump administration to undo.
The EPA said in late November that it
had completed a required midterm
review of Corporate Average Fuel
Economy standards put in place in 2012
and decided they should not be relaxed
as requested by the auto industry. The

move in the waning days of the Obama


administration brought protests from
congressional
Republicans
and
automakers, which accused the agency
of playing politics with a rushed determination.
Fridays action keeps in place pollution reduction targets for the years
2022-2025. That means the fleet of new
cars will have to average 51.4 miles per
gallon by 2025, up more than 18 mpg
from the 33.2 mpg requirement in
2015, the most recent year available.
Acting EPA Assistant Administrator
Janet McCabe said the agency determined the technology is available to

meet the standards. The requirements are


flexible and will automatically be
reduced if consumers keep buying trucks
and SUVs, she said. For example, when
the standards were conceived in 2012,
the fleetwide mileage target for 2025
was 54.5 mpg. But because more trucks
and SUVs are now being sold, that number was reduced to 51.4, the EPA said.
In 2012, gasoline was $3.60 per gallon, compared with around $2.35 currently. During several months last year,
the SUVs and trucks captured a record
share of the market. At years end nearly six of every 10 new vehicles sold
were trucks or SUVs.

It was creating serious problems for the
security of Cuba, for the security of the
United States and for the security of our citizens left vulnerable to human trafficking,
migratory fraud and violence as a result of
the incentives created by these preferential
policies, said Josefina Vidal, Cubas top
diplomat for U.S. affairs.
Obama is using an administrative rule
change to end the policy. Donald Trump
could undo that rule after becoming president
next week. He has criticized Obamas moves
to improve relations with Cuba. But ending
a policy that has allowed hundreds of thousands of people to come to the United States
without a visa also aligns with Trumps commitment to tough immigration policies.
This was bound to happen at some
point, said Havana taxi driver Guillermo
Britos, 35. It could impose a more normal
dynamic on emigration, so that not so many
people die at sea, but it could also take an
escape valve away from the government,

Syria says Israeli missiles
struck near military airport

BEIRUT Syria accused Israel of firing


missiles early Friday that landed near a
major military base west of Damascus, in
the third such reported attack in nearly six
weeks to hit near the capital.
The Syrian government was quick to
respond, warning Israel of the repercussions of such attacks. But it refrained from
saying whether it would retaliate.
Damascus, preoccupied with the countrys civil war for six years now, is unlikely to open a new front with Israel.
Meanwhile, Israel has delivered the occasional message to Damascus by targeting
shipments of weapons headed to the
Lebanese Hezbollah group. The group is a
main supporter of Syrias President Bashar
Assad in the civil war, and has sent thousands of fighters to fight alongside his
army.
There was no immediate comment from
Israel on Friday to the Syrian claims of a
strike. Israel is widely believed to have carried out a number of airstrikes on advanced
weapons systems in Syria including
Russian-made anti-aircraft missiles and
Iranian-made missiles, as well as Hezbollah
positions but it rarely confirms them.

HAVANA Ordinary Cubans worried


Friday about the economic problems that
could be caused for some people by the sudden end to a once-easy pathway to life in the
United States, saying many people who
already left the island to take advantage of
the earlier American immigration policy
could wind up back home with nothing.
President Barack Obama on Thursday
ended the possibility of automatic legal residency for any Cuban who touches U.S. soil.
Those people who were in the middle of trips
to get to the United States could be the
biggest losers, some Cubans said.
There are people who have sold houses,
renounced everything, and today they are in
limbo, said Leonardo Serrano, a 47-yearold who works for a firm that operates with
private and government investment. They
wont be able to get there, and when they
return they wont have anything.
Average Cubans and opponents of the
islands communist leaders said they expected pressure for reform on the island to
increase with the elimination of a mechanism that siphoned off the islands most dissatisfied citizens and turned them into
sources of remittances supporting relatives
who remained on the island.
The repeal of the wet foot, dry foot policy went into effect immediately after a
Thursday afternoon announcement. It followed months of negotiations focused in
part on getting Cuba to agree to take back
people who had arrived in the U.S.
Cubans fearful of an imminent end to a
special immigration status bestowed during
the Cold War had been flocking to the United
States since the Dec. 17, 2014 announcement that the U.S. and Cuba would re-establish diplomatic relations and move toward
normalization. About 100,000 left for the
United States after the declaration of detente,
many flooding overland through South and
Central America and Mexico in an exodus
that irritated U.S. allies and other immigrant
groups and spawned bitter complaints from

29 West 25TH Ave.


(Near El Camino)
San Mateo

which was getting hard currency from the


emigrants.
President Bill Clinton created the wet
foot, dry foot policy in 1995 as a revision
of a more liberal immigration policy that
allowed Cubans caught at sea to come to the
United States become legal residents in a
year.
The two governments have been negotiating an end to wet foot, dry foot for months
and finalized an agreement Thursday.
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.

Wells Fargo profit falls after sales practice scandal


By Ken Sweet and Joseph Pisani
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Wells Fargo said


Friday its profit fell 5 percent in
the first full quarter after regulators
said that bank employees opened
millions of customer accounts
fraudulently to meet sales goals.
The scandal has kept new customers away, with the bank reporting that new account openings
plummeted last month.
In September, regulators fined
the San Francisco-based bank
$185 million for opening more
than two million unauthorized
accounts. The scandal brought
nationwide attention to the bank,
leading to the resignation of the
banks CEO John Stumpf in
October.
Earlier this week, the company
announced a new pay plan for bank

19,952.03
19,849.38
19,885.73
-5.27

branch employees that would


eliminate incentives for opening
accounts or meeting sales goals.
While we have more work to
do, I am proud of the effort of our
entire team to make things right
for our customers and team members and to continue building a
better Wells Fargo for the future,
CEO Tim Sloan said in a statement.
New checking account openings
fell 40 percent in December compared with the same month the
year before. New credit card applications fell 43 percent during the
same period. In-house customer
loyalty scores also fell.
Notably, Wells Fargo dropped
its so-called cross-sale ratio,
which was a metric Wells used to
calculate on average how many
products a customers household
had with the bank. The cross-sale

ratio became a toxic metric for the


bank after the sales practices scandal.
Overall, Wells Fargo reported
net income of $5.27 billion, or 96
cents per share, in the three
months ending Dec. 31, compared
with $5. 58 billion, or $1 per
share, in the same quarter the year
before. Wells Fargo said its earnings were lowered by 7 cents per
share because of an accounting
adjustment related to hedging
long-term debt.
Adjusted earnings came to $1.03

First Friday-night quad of the season. Two


rivals Aragon and San Mateo hooking
up for the first time this year.
It couldnt possibly get any better than
that, right?
Well, when you factor in the way the game
ended, no, it could not get any better.
Down three with 12 seconds to play,
Aragon got a couple looks from behind the
3-point arc, but the Dons couldnt convert,
allowing San Mateo to escape with a 46-43
victory.
But that tells only tiny bit of the story.
San Mateo (1-1 PAL South, 10-4 overall)
rallied from a nine-point, early fourth-quarter deficit to stun Aragon (0-2, 6-8) down the
stretch.
The Bearcats finished the game on a 8-0
run, with Viraj Chandha draining a 3-pointer to give San Mateo a 45-43 lead with 2:07
to play. Jake Jeffries then hit one of two free
throws to put San Mateo up 46-43 with
under a minute to play to set up the game
final frantic seconds.
Chandhas 3 capped a wild sequence. First,
it was DaHareeha Allen making an acrobatic, blind, backward layup as he was fouled to
cut the Aragon lead to 43-42 with 2:15 to
play. He missed the ensuing free throw, but
the Bearcats corralled the rebound and
kicked it out to Chandha, whose trey nearly
brought down the filled-to-capacity gym at
San Mateo.
We didnt want to settle for the 3, said
San Mateo coach Marvin Lui. That was one
of those shots where you go, No! No! No!
Yes!
It completed a comeback for San Mateo
that saw the Bearcats turn the screws defensively over the final eight minutes, holding
Aragon to just five fourth-quarter points.
And those shots that the Bearcats were
misfiring on in the first half, started to fall
in the fourth quarter.
At the end of the third quarter, I challenged them, Lui said. Who wants it more?
Who wants to go after those 50-50 balls?
The Bearcats came up with seven steals in

Caada College in a battle for first place
Friday night against City College of San

With the game deadlocked 79-79 with one
second remaining in regulation, CCSF
the No. 1 ranked team in the state
inbounded to a wide-open Adrian Rico and
the freshman buried a 3-pointer as time
expired to give his Rams a dramatic 82-79
victory.
Just three games into conference play, the
win thrusts CCSF (3-0 in Coast North, 18-1
overall) into sole possession of first place
in the Coast Conference-North. CCSF and
Caada (2-1, 14-5)
entered Friday as the last
two unbeaten teams in
league play.
Were disappointed,

Reynoso said. We know
were a better team than
them. And thats kind of

room is keep our heads
high because we know we beat ourselves.
But also a lot of disappointment because we
dont think theyre the No. 1 team in the
state. We believe were a better team; and I
know we are. We just didnt play like it for
the majority of the game.
Both teams ran hot and cold in the wildly
physical game, with CCSF committing 22
turnovers the most it had in a single
game since the opening week of the season
back on Nov. 10 against Monterey
Peninsula. But it was the turnover that wasnt that set up the game-winner for the
Rams.
Amid the tie and CCSF in possession
with under 10 seconds to play, the ball got
jarred loose near midcourt. Caada forward
Antony Navarrete sprinted towards the sideline in attempt to scoop it up but lost his
feet and pushed the ball out of bounds.

Ace Gray, catcher Vogt reach deals with As


By Janie McCauley

OAKLAND The Oakland Athletics knew


Khris Davis would command a hefty raise
after a career year.
He is seeking a $5 million salary for the
2017 season and the As are offering $4.65
million in numbers exchanged Friday.
Other than the slugger, the rest of the
clubs arbitration-eligible players reached
new deals.
Right-hander Sonny Gray agreed to a
$3,575,000, one-year contract to avoid
arbitration. Right-hander Liam Hendriks
received a $1.1 million contract while
Stephen Vogt got a $2,965,000 deal, leav-

ing left fielder Davis as


the only one yet to settle

career highs of 42 home
runs and 102 RBIs in his
first season with the lowKhris Davis
budget, last-place As. He
earned $524,500 in 2016 and will get a substantial bump after his performance highlighted a losing year for last-place Oakland.
Gray entered 2016 with huge expectations
as ace of the As staff, then was scratched

Harper and Nationals avoid


arbitration with $13.6M deal
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Bryce Harper and the Washington Nationals


agreed to a $13,625,000 contract for 2017, avoiding arbitration
and more than doubling the slugging outfielders salary two years
before he can become a free agent for the first time.
The Nationals also reached one-year deals with their three other
arbitration-eligible players on Friday, the day players and teams
were to exchange proposed salary figures ahead of hearings.
Third baseman Anthony Rendon will earn $5.8 million next
season, right-hander Tanner Roark gets
$4,315,000 and new catcher Derek Norris
agreed to $4.2 million.
Harper was paid $5 million by the NL East
champion Nationals last season, when he
struggled with injuries and took a big step
back after becoming the youngest unanimous MVP in baseball history in 2015.
He hit only .243 with 24 homers and 86
RBIs in 2016, significant drop-offs from the
Anthony
.330, 42 and 99 of a year earlier.
Rendon
Still only 24, Harper is already a four-time
All-Star and he was the NL Rookie of the Year in 2012. One of the
top topics of discussion with regard to the Nationals and all of
Major League Baseball moving forward will be whether the
team will be able to sign Harper to a long-term deal. He can go
into free agency, with the chance to sign with any club for hundreds of millions of dollars, after the 2018 season.
With every player that you acquire, its a possibility that you

may lose them in their specific time frame.


With Bryce Harper and every other player
that has a contract expiring, you better make
plans, Rizzo said last month, when asked
about preparing for the chance that Harper
could leave before the 2019 season. And its
not just Bryce Harper; its everybody on the
roster.
Rendon is coming off a bounce-back year
in
which he hit .270 with 20 homers and a
Bryce Harper
career-high 85 RBIs while appearing in 156
games; injuries limited him to 80 in 2015. The No. 6 overall pick
in the 2011 amateur draft, Rendon is entrenched as Washingtons
starting third baseman and made $2.8 million last season.
Roark was Washingtons second-best starter in 2016, behind
NL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer, going 16-10 with a
2.83 ERA in 33 starts, returning to the rotation after spending a
year working out of the bullpen. He earned a substantial raise after
making just under $543,300 last season. Roark ranked fifth in
the NL in wins, sixth in ERA and ninth in hits per nine innings.
As of now, Norris is penciled in as the starting catcher for the
Nationals, who acquired him in an offseason trade with the San
Diego Padres. Norris is coming off a terrible 2015 at the plate: He
batted only .186 with 14 homers and 42 RBIs and a hard-tobelieve .255 on-base percentage. He made $2,925,000 last season. Unless Washington goes out and adds another catcher, the
27-year-old would replace Wilson Ramos who signed with
Tampa Bay as a free agent as the teams everyday guy behind
the plate.

to settle down the tempo. And after a scoreless first half, Carlmont did precisely that
with Avetian scoring the decisive goal in
the 45th minute.
My guys, we play a much more composed game not flinchy, panic ball,
Carlmont head coach Will Stambaugh said.
The first 40 minutes, we were panicking,
and then we were able to calm them down.
The calm helped Carlmont exploit an
Aragon defense that was compensating
heavily to one side of the field. With the
Dons sending three defenders to the west
sideline, the Scots struck from the east as

senior forward Leo McBride pushed the


action and served it into the middle for
Avetian to exact a ninja kick from just outside the keepers box.
[Avetian] happened to be in the right
place at the right time, Stambaugh said.
Avetian has proven one of a trio of strong
scorers in the fast Carlmont front this season. Along with McBride and senior midfielder Brett Fitzpatrick, the secret to the
Scots success has been keeping balance in
the front line.
The beauty of this side is a lot of people
are scoring, Stambaugh said.
But Aragon attempted to wrestle the game
back into a frantic state in the closing minutes and nearly succeeded. Playing from a
goal behind, the Dons saw a majority of the
possession time through the closing 15
minutes.
With just over five minutes remaining in

regulation, Aragon senior midfielder


William Laird had the best look as he took a
pass over the middle from 25 yards out, but
sent a booming kick high over the crossbar.
Carlmont responded with a push upfield to
nearly put the game away when senior midfielder Alexander Chernikov took a charge
into the penalty box at a near 1-on-1 with
the keeper, only to have Aragon senior
Antonio Sandoval slide in for a tackle to
clear the ball to the sideline.
Otherwise, the Carlmont defense hunkered down with strong 1-on-1 defense to
rely on a physical presence as the Dons
tried for several game-tying chance, all of
which fell short.
Aragon is a big team, Carlmont senior
defender Diego Ronderos said. Theyre
good and technical, so you have to stick
your body in front of them or theyre going
to get through. So we were able to come

through and put up a strong performance.


For a young Aragon team, Markoulakis is
looking to employ a similar strategy as
Carlmont did Friday in persevering for a
strong
second-half
effort.
Only
Markoulakis sees that strategy as more of a
long-term one for Aragon to extend late into
the season.
Its the quality of play the entire season
and its where we can go from now,
Markoulakis said.
Carlmont, on the other hand, is thinking
big from the here and now. The Scots have
incurred just one loss this season, and that
was a 2-1 battle at powerhouse Palo Alto.
Carlmont followed that by tying
Bellarmine 1-1, then defeating St. Ignatius
1-0 to start a four-game winning streak.
We definitely know were a contender for

No. 21 St. Marys takes on


No. 5 Gonzaga Saturday
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SPOKANE, Wash. Fifth-ranked


Gonzaga typically doesnt get tested much after West Coast
Conference play begins. But the
undefeated Bulldogs face one of
their biggest remaining challenges
when No. 21 Saint Marys visits on
Saturday.
The Zags (16-0, 4-0 West Coast)
are the last remaining undefeated
team in the nation, and they have
romped through their first four conference games, winning by an average of more than 25 points.
Saint Marys figures to be a bit
tougher. The Gaels actually dealt
Gonzaga a rare home loss last season.
That sticks with you, guard
Silas Melson said. It hurts when
somebody comes into your house
and takes your win away from you.
But Melson admitted it is good to
have a tough archrival in a league
where Gonzaga often blows out
opponents. The Bulldogs beat
Loyola Marymount 93-55 on
Thursday night for their 16th consecutive win, the longest streak in
the nation.
It makes it a lot more fun when
you have a league game thats hyped
up this much, Melson said.
Gonzaga
center
Przemek
Karnowski missed last seasons
games against Saint Marys with
injury, but the senior knows all
about the rivalry.
Its Saint Marys, Karnowski
said. Theyre either in front of us

or behind us mostly behind


but the rivalry is there.
Added guard Josh Perkins: This
is definitely a game we circle on our
calendars.
Saint Marys coach Randy
Bennett is fielding perhaps his best
team at the school. The Gaels (15-1,
5-0 WCC) beat Portland 74-33 on
Thursday night.
Gonzaga will visit Saint Marys
on Feb. 11. Theres a pretty good
chance the teams will meet a third
time in the conference tournament
in Las Vegas.
While Saint Marys is a veteran
team that returned nearly its entire
roster from last season, Gonzaga
started the season with a lot of newcomers.
Three starters Nigel WilliamsGoss, Jordan Mathews and
Johnathan Williams are transfers
who are in their first season playing
for the Zags. Freshmen Zach

COLTS
Continued from page 11
Reynoso contended Navarrete was pushed by
a CCSF defender. But no foul was called.
The City kid pushed him out and thats when
the ball went out of bounds on us, Reynoso
said. I thought it was a pretty obvious call.
But Caada did plenty to hurt its chances. The
Colts started red hot both at the outset of the
game, and to start the second half. Freshman
guard Marcel Burton was a perfect 6 of 6 from 3point land, sinking three straight in the opening five minutes of the game to stake Caada to
an early 16-8 lead.
Then trailing 40-33 at halftime, the Colts
went on an 11-point run to start the second half,
fueled by three more treys by Burton.
When my teammates screen for me, thats
what I do, Burton said. I just let it go.

addition to three other Aragon turnovers in
the fourth quarter. And after scoring no more
than 12 points in the first three quarters, the
Bearcats had 16 in the fourth.
But it almost wasnt to be. It was one of
those game in which San Mateo trailed most
of the way. Every time the Bearcats reeled
back in the Dons, Aragon would spurt ahead.
I was concerned we would run out of gas,
Lui said.

Given the opponent, circumstances and


atmosphere, it was a legitimate concern
for Lui.
The first three quarters of the game, we
didnt play with any composure. Our guys
were so hyped, Lui said. The atmosphere was amazing. The best I think Ive
seen it since Ive been here. I think they
(the San Mateo players) let [the crowd]
take them out of what we wanted to do.
In the first half, the Bearcats were gett i n g t h ei r o p p o rt un i t i es , t h ey j us t
werent finishing them. If not for some
sloppy play by Aragon, the Dons might
have had a commanding lead at halftime,
instead of the three-point lead they had at

THE DAILY JOURNAL

22-20 lead on a 3-pointer by sophomore Zach


Copeland. Following Burtons hot start, Caada
finished the half 0 of 10 from beyond the arc.
We did not shoot the ball well tonight other
than [Burton], Reynoso said. [Burton] was on
fire. He let it fly and we moved the ball to
him. And when we went away from ball movement and sharing the ball, we were bad.
CCSF guard Eddie Stansberry came off the
bench to nearly single handedly temper
Burtons hot hand. The freshman was tasked
with guarding Burton 1-on-1 and didnt let him
get another shot off in the first half.
He played good defense, Burton said. His
coach was saying: Face guard! Face guard! So,
he wouldnt let me get the ball. So, I credit him
on his defense.
Stansberrys defensive heroics earned him
more time in the second half and it paid off big
time on offense. After tallying just two points
in the first half, Stansberry went on a secondhalf tear to finish with a team-high 17 points.
Burton, who paced Caada with a game-high 18
points, was one of four Colts to score in double
figures. Sophomore point guard Mike Pickney
finished with 15 points, while Navarrete and

sophomore guard William Green and freshman


totaled 14 apiece.
Late in the game though, Caadas tepid performance from the free-throw line proved a
killer. The Colts were 10 of 18 from the line, and
when Pickney made just 1 of 2 with 1:01
remaining in regulation, Caada found itself
clinging to a mere 77-76 lead.
Copeland who finished with 14 points for
CCSF responded with a clutch and-1 in the
closing minute, giving the Rams a 79-77 lead
after hitting an off-balance 10-foot jumper and
drawing a foul in the process. He drilled the free
throw to up the lead to 79-77.
Caada responded with a bucket by freshman
Keith Dickerson, who came up with a loose ball
in front of the hoop and finger-rolled it in to tie
it 79-79.
But CCSF responded with Ricos dagger
just his third 3-pointer of the season in six
tries as the freshman found himself wide open
to get the shot off just before Pickney and Green
arrived with the defense.
We slacked off on him just a little bit and got
enough to see the rim and got it up, Green said.

the break, 21-18.


Neither team shot particularly well from
the field in the first two quarters, but
Aragons rebounding limited second-chance
opportunities. The Dons outrebounded the
Bearcats 23-16 in the opening half, but that
advantage was offset by 11 turnovers committed by the Dons.
Argon trailed 10-9 after the first quarter,
but scored seven unanswered points to open
the second period to lead 16-10. The Dons
eventually built up a 19-12 lead when Aaron
Balotro drained a 3 midway through the
period. San Mateo got back into it with 3 of
4 free throws and a late Chandha 3 made it a
three-point game at the half.

The Dons extended their lead to 26-19


early in the third quarter, but San Mateo
responded with a 7-0 run to tie the score at
26. But Aragon end the period on a 10-4 run,
with Joe Park nailing a pair of 3-pointers
late to put Aragon up 36-30 going into the
fourth quarter.
San Mateo was led by point guard Josh
Cobillas, who finished with a game-high 15
points. Chanha and Allen each finished
with eight points.
Aragon was led by Balotro, who scored 11
points. Davion Cox and Park each chipped
in with nine points for the Dons.
A win is a win, but its good to get this
win, Lui said.

will find some red tape has been removed
after the Board of Supervisors unanimously
agreed Tuesday to update its ordinance to
comply with state mandates.
We all know the Peninsula, San Mateo
County, the greater Bay Area is feeling
probably the worst of the housing crisis in
the state and potentially in the country.
So our Board of Supervisors has focused and
prioritized this. They see second units as a
very good way of increasing housing supply without really impacting neighborhood
conditions the way a multi-family building
would, Gibson said.
Secondary units provide an alternative to
denser developments in smaller neighborhoods. For example, its unlikely developers could buy up enough contiguous properties to create apartments while neighbors
may be less amenable to a larger housing
complex as compared to a secondary unit,
Gibson said.
Board of Supervisors President Don
Horsley agreed secondary units that dont
have substantial adverse impacts to neighbors quality of life such as parking or

did at the same stage of life, despite being
better educated, according to a new analysis
of Federal Reserve data by the advocacy
group Young Invincibles.
The analysis being released Friday gives
concrete details about a troubling generational divide that helps to explain much of
the anxiety that defined the 2016 election.
Millennials have half the net worth of
boomers. Their home ownership rate is
lower, while their student debt is drastically
higher.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

privacy can be a benefit to alleviating


the housing crunch.
I think what we passed was a thoughtful
way to provide additional housing without
having real negative impacts on neighbors.
Because although people are supportive of
additional housing, I just dont believe they
want their neighborhoods to become places
where you have high rises and at the same
time, we dont have a lot of space, Horsley
said. Were trying to look at every option
we possibly can. We know we are a
Peninsula, theres only so much land, and
we know that 70 percent is open space, its
protected open space and thats something
we place a high value on.
Under the new rules, single-family homeowners with large enough properties could
go through a ministerial review instead of a
public hearing if their proposal meets zoning regulations.
Consistent with the states changes, an
attached unit could be either 750 square feet
or up to 50 percent of the main home but no
more than 1,200 square feet. Detached units
could be either 750 square feet or up to 35
percent of the main home size but no more
than 1,200 square feet. The county previously had a 1, 500-square-foot absolute
maximum and may return to that size if officials determine state law allows it, Gibson
said.

Single-story units no more than 16 feet


tall must have at least 5-foot side and rear
setbacks while taller two-story units up to
26 feet must have 5-foot side setbacks with
at least 10 feet in the rear.
Constructing new units requires at least
one on-site parking space and three-bedroom units must provide two new spaces
although in-laws of that size are very rare,
Gibson noted. One state mandate the county
cant avoid is that properties located near
mass transit dont have to provide additional parking.
Demand for secondary units has also gone
up from an average of two or five applications a year, to the county receiving more
than 10 requests last year, Gibson said.
The proposed ready-made design templates would be consistent with the countys guidelines and Horsley suggested easily
visualizing whats possible may encourage
interested property owners.
It would be nice to show them templates
of what you can do that would architecturally fit with your home, that arent over-intrusive, are respectful of your neighbors and at
the same time create the opportunity for
second units, Horsley said, noting the
additional space could be used to help house
growing families, supplement a property
owners income and provide additional
options for those working in the county.

We want people to start looking at if


there are higher and better uses for properties, especially along transit corridors, he
said.
Another ongoing effort is to provide an
amnesty period so owners of illegally constructed or unpermitted units can make sure
theyre safe. Although the extent of illegal
units isnt known, officials have anecdotally heard there are a fair amount throughout
the region, Gibson said.
In response, the county may consider a
yearlong grace period during which people
can come forward and wont be penalized.
Instead, the county would work with owners
to meet the bare minimum needed to make
the units safe. The county is also considering whether to provide low-interest loans
that could help owners bring units up to par,
Gibson said.
The amnesty period is especially
poignant after the deadly Oakland Ghost
Ship fire killed dozens at a warehouse turned
into an illegal housing compound.
We have these units that are on the
ground, they exist, theyre someones housing now. We dont want to lose them, but we
dont want them to be unsafe, Gibson said,
noting with the looming housing crisis
Im sure throughout the Bay Area people
are kind of retooling their garage, or their
shed or whatever into a living space.

The generational gap is a central dilemma


for the incoming presidency of Donald
Trump, who essentially pledged a return to
the prosperity of post-World War II
America. The analysis also hints at the
issues of culture and identity that divided
many voters, showing that white millennials who still earn much more than their
blacks and Latino peers have seen their
incomes plummet the most relative to
boomers.
Andrea Ledesma, 28, says her parents
owned a house and were raising kids by her
age.
Not so for her. Ledesma graduated from
college four years ago. After moving
through a series of jobs, she now earns
$18,000 making pizza at Classic Slice in

Milwaukee, shares a two-bedroom apartment with her boyfriend and has $33,000
in student debt.
Thats not at all how life is now, thats
not something that people strive for and
its not something that is even attainable,
and I thought it would be at this point,
Ledesma said.
Her mother Cheryl Romanowski, 55, was
making about $10,000 a year at her age
working at a bank without a college education. In todays dollars, that income would
be equal to roughly $19,500.
Romanowski said she envies the choices
that her daughter has in life, but she
acknowledged that her daughter has it harder than her.
I think the opportunities have just been
fading away, she said.
The analysis of the Fed data shows the
extent of the decline. It compared 25 to 34
year-olds in 2013, the most recent year
available, to the same age group in 1989
after adjusting for inflation.
Education does help boost incomes . But
the median college-educated millennial
with student debt is only earning slightly
more than a baby boomer without a degree
did in 1989.
The home ownership rate for this age
group dipped to 43 percent from 46 percent
in 1989, although the rate has improved for
millennials with a college degree relative
to boomers.
The median net worth of millennials is
$10,090, 56 percent less than it was for
boomers.
Whites still earn dramatically more than
Blacks and Latinos, reflecting the legacy of
discrimination for jobs, education and
housing.
Yet compared to white baby boomers,

some white millennials appear stuck in a


pattern of downward mobility. This group
has seen their median income tumble more
than 21 percent to $47,688.
Median income for black millennials has
fallen just 1.4 percent to $27,892. Latino
millennials earn nearly 29 percent more
than their boomer predecessors to
$30,436.
The analysis fits into a broader pattern of
diminished opportunity. Research last year
by economists led by Stanford Universitys
Raj Chetty found that people born in 1950
had a 79 percent chance of making more
money than their parents. That figure
steadily slipped over the past several
decades, such that those born in 1980 had
just a 50 percent chance of out-earning
their parents.
This decline has occurred even though
younger Americans are increasingly college-educated. The proportion of 25 to 29
year-olds with a college degree has risen to
35.6 percent in 2015 from 23.2 percent in
1990, a report this month by the
Brookings Institution noted.
The declining fortunes of millennials
could impact boomers who are retired or on
the cusp of retirement. Payroll taxes from
millennials helps to finance the Social
Security and Medicare benefits that many
boomers receive programs that Trump
has said wont be subject to spending cuts.
And those same boomers will need younger
generations to buy their homes and invest
in the financial markets to protect their
own savings.
The challenges that young adults face
today could forecast the challenges that we
see down the road, said Tom Allison,
deputy policy and research director at
Young Invincibles.

While Berg gravitates toward tough-guy
realms like the battlefield and the gridiron,
hes most at home in the home. His films
are grounded in quotidian family life, of husbands kissing wives goodbye and parents
making breakfast for their kids. (The
tremendous home life of Bergs TV series,
Friday Night Lights, is the best example
of this.) He has surely made a close study of
John Ford Westerns and their tender lingering on the hearth.
Beginning in the hours before the pressure-cooker bombs explode, Berg visits the
home or workplace of the characters hell
stitch together throughout the film: newlyweds planning to watch the race (Rachel
Brosnahan and Christopher OShea), an

ast week, before winter break drew


to a close, making way for 7 a.m.
alarms and 8 a.m. lectures, I found
myself making my way to the living room
couch, a steaming cup of tea in one hand, a
Margaret Atwood novel in the other. As I
settled into the comfortable softness that
only old leather couches have, the rain outside forming a steady,
soothing rhythm, I
removed the bookmark
from where I had left off
months maybe even a
year ago, flipping to
the front of the novel to
begin anew.
Except for a short
break to pour another
cup of tea, I read for two or three hours
straight, reveling in the sound of falling
rain droplets and crinkling pages, enjoying
the feel of worn leather and textured paper.
Curled up on the sofa, eyes following the
neatly printed lines of black text, it was a
while before I realized that I had accidentally left my phone upstairs while grabbing
the throw from off my bed.
I instinctively made a move to stand up,
wanting to head upstairs and retrieve my
phone. But as I slid the bookmark in
between the pages and disentangled myself
from the warmth of the blanket, I paused. I
had no need for my phone at the moment
there were no urgent emails or last-minute
homework assignments. And catching up
with friends on Facebook or by text could
hardly be considered a now or never activity. Besides, when I had free time, I was
online in some format on my phone, or
my laptop or perhaps even both simultaneously likely 90 percent of the time.
I sank back into the sofa, rearranging the
blanket and taking another sip of my stillwarm Earl Grey tea before reaching for the
paperback again. Opening to the bookmarked pages, I resumed reading, the plump
water droplets still falling in an organized
manner, as though there had been no interruption whatsoever.
And it wasnt until I heard my fathers

Community disarms
terrorin Patriots Day
By Jake Coyle
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Bombs detonated in the center of Boston


are disarmed by bonds of family and community in Peter Bergs Patriots Day, a stirring ode to civic life in the age of terrorism.
Patriots Day, which recreates the 2013
Boston Marathon and the subsequent fourday manhunt, is the third in a string of docudramas for Berg, following the Navy SEAL
drama Lone Survivor and the recent oil rig
disaster film Deepwater Horizon.
In tales of real-life American heroes, Berg
has found a potent balance of fact and fiction, mixing expert big-budget filmmaking
with realism. Following the all-around disappointment of Battleship, he has made
his muscular, masculine tales leaner and
truer. In each, a skillfully visceral chronol-

ogy culminates cathartically in moving codas of


the real people from the
movie.
Patriots Day, coming
just over three years after
the bombing that killed
three and maimed many,
could easily seem like
typical

exploitation of a tragedy,
or, on the other side of the coin, simpleminded rah-rah patriotism.
That its neither is due in part to the detail
of Bergs many-peopled portrait of
American life. Everyone here is an individual, a family member, someone doing their
job. The film, from a screenplay by Berg,
Matt Cook and Joshua Zetumer, weaves
together a spectrum of characters from

Judge finalizes divorce of Johnny Depp, Amber Heard


By Anthony McCartney
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES A judge ended Johnny


Depp and Amber Heards marriage on Friday
after months of bickering over the final
terms of their breakup.
The judgment keeps in place many of the
key terms the actors agreed to in August,
when they announced a settlement in their
divorce a day before a restraining order hearing that would have focused on Heards allegations that Depp was physically abusive
toward her.
Their agreement called for Depp to pay
Heard $7 million, which she has pledged to
a pair of charities. Attorneys for the actors
have squabbled over whether Depp can make
the payments directly to the charities and

other details of the final


judgment.
We are all pleased to
put this unpleasant chapter in Mr. Depp and his
familys lives behind
them, his attorney Laura
Wasser wrote in a statement.
Having
his
request for entry of the
Johnny Depp dissolution judgment
granted today made it a
particularly lucky Friday the 13th.
The couple has no children together, but
Heard will keep their dogs, Pistol and Boo,
and a horse named Arrow.
The judgment splits up several other
assets, including cars and property. Neither
actor will receive spousal support, and a

confidentiality provision calls for them to


refrain from discussing
their relationship in
interviews or on social
media.
The actors signed the
judgment in December,
which led Los Angeles
Superior Court Judge
Amber Heard Carl H. Moor to state at
the outset of a hearing
Friday, Im scratching my head a little bit
about why were all here.
He received assurances from lawyers that
there was no dispute over the terms of the
judgment, and Heards lawyer Pierce
ODonnell said the actress wanted the case
to end immediately.

My client would be very happy to move


on with her life, ODonnell said.
The judgment ends a marriage that lasted
less than two years. The pair met on the set
of the 2011 film The Rum Diary and married in February 2015, but separated in May
2016.
Depp denied he physically abused Heard.
Police officers who responded to their apartment in May after a fight between the couple
said they found no evidence of a crime.
Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound
by love, the actors said in a joint statement
released after Heard dismissed her restraining order petition. Neither party has made
false accusations for financial gain. There
was never any intent of physical or emotional harm.

Pacifica Quartet shakes the winter blues


Music@Menlo features elegant and absorbing ensemble
By David Bratman
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

Music@Menlos winter series, occasional


concerts designed to keep the chamber
music lovers heart warm during the long
months between editions of its summer festival, gave an especially choice concert
Wednesday, Jan. 11, at the Menlo-Atherton
Center for the Performing Arts.
The performers were the members of the
Pacifica Quartet, the ensemble that enriched
the 2009 summer festival with a cycle of
Mendelssohns string quartets. This time
they offered a more varied program of
Beethoven, Shostakovich and Ravel.
This was a real connoisseurs concert,
something to delight anyone who enjoys
chamber music. The performances had complete narrative clarity. Each section of every
movement was simply shaped, straightforwardly and cleanly presented and whenever possible light and charming. Even
someone unfamiliar with this music, who
had come only out of curiosity over what
could be so appealing about such esoteric
music, could have been won over by this
elegant and absorbing music.
The only thing impossible to say is
which of the three pieces was the best. They
were all the best.
Beethovens Quartet in B-flat, Op. 18,
No. 6, is one of his early works, from a set
announcing that here was a pupil of Haydn
and follower of Mozart ready to produce a set
of quartets like theirs, only with a little
extra brusqueness that foreshadowed the
craggy Beethoven to come. For most of this
work, the Pacifica Quartet kept up that
image of a shaggier Haydn. Cellist Brandon
Vamos intense expressions and first violinist Simin Ganatras obvious delight in sweet
passages were visual expressions of the
combination of light elegance with intermittent bumps on display here.
The finale was different. This begins with
a long Adagio passage tagged melancholy
by Beethoven. In this performance, a tinge
of that melancholy was heard even in the
cheerful country dance that follows. All is
not fun in this post-Haydn world, but it
remains elegant.
The five movements of Shostakovichs
Quartet No. 3 in F, Op. 73, form a series of
tableaus depicting the emotional impact of

the onset through the aftermath of World


War II. The opening scene of innocent
cheerfulness could have come from the earlier movements of the Beethoven piece,
while the final summation echoed the
melancholia in Beethovens finale. The second movement, anticipating war, is the one
that Pacifica played around with the most. It
sounded cheeky rather than foreboding.
Only the remaining two movements,
depicting the war itself as a violent scherzo
and the aftermath as a tragic elegy, were as
rough and harsh as Shostakovich intended.
This was the only music like that in the concert. They demonstrated that the Pacifica
Quartet has that language in its vocabulary
too.
Ganatra drove Shostakovichs frequent
sliding glissandi forcefully through the
work. Several solo passages for viola, a
favorite instrument of the composers, were
played by Masumi Per Rostad with an ideally suitable combination of earnestness and
simplicity.
Ravels Quartet in F was his demonstration that his experimental impressionist
style could be poured into classical forms.
Unsurprisingly, the Pacifica Quartet preferred it dry rather than lush. Sections of the
outer movements that are usually relaxed
and indulgent were brisk and pragmatic
here. The exotic passages of the slow movement, instead of being over-ripe, sounded
astringent and weird, making Ravel a compatriot of Shostakovich. The pizzicato passages of the scherzo exploded, not so much
with energy as with crisp precision.
The Pacifica Quartet has grown as an
ensemble over the years. Back in 2009, I
could hear the increased depth and subtlety
in their Mendelssohn over the already fine
ANTHONY PARMELEE
recording theyd made of the set a few years Pacifica Quartet has evolved over the years and have mastered the clarity of their performance.
earlier. Todays Pacifica Quartet still the
same players over all this time has
evolved a greater unity of sound quality.
They have mastered above all the clarity of
its performance.
The final concert of Menlos winter
series, on May 21, will feature clarinetist
David Shifrin in Messiaens haunting
Quartet for the End of Time and a new commission by Andy Akiho. This years summer
festival will last for three weeks beginning
July 15. Announcements of the program
will be made in April.

Gay rights TV miniseries


is for all, including Trump
By Lynn Elber
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PASADENA Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black says his upcoming TV miniseries about the gay rights
movement is for everyone, up to and including the incoming president.
I think theres a lot of people who voted
for Donald Trump who will love this show,
Black told a TV critics meeting Tuesday. I
didnt write this show for half the country. If
Donald Trump watches the show, I think he
might like the show.
When We Rise, airing Feb. 27 to March
2 on ABC, recounts the LGBT civil rights
movement and those involved from the mid20th century to present day. The cast
includes Guy Pearce, Rachel Griffiths,
Mary-Louise Parker, Ivory Aquino and
Michael Kenneth Williams.
Black said the show already has come
under online attack from members of the altright movement, but said that the show is
not a war. We are not against anyone.
The project was initiated four years ago
and without anticipation of the current
political climate, Black said.
He wrote it for members of his own family, he said. The writer, who won an Academy
Award for 2008s Milk, described growing
up in a religious, conservative, military
household in the South.

His message to his


cousins, aunts, uncles
and others is, Hey, we
have more in common
than we think and we
speak the same language, Black said,
adding that he treasures
his relatives.
The series perspective
Dustin Black
is universal, Black said,
calling it a conversation about what its
like to be a minority in this world and the
importance of working together.
Williams (Boardwalk Empire, 12 Years
a Slave) said the miniseries offers stories
of triumph and courage this country was
built and is a timely celebration of
American diversity and unity.
When Black and the actors were asked
about whether Hollywood is out of touch
with middle America, Griffiths responded.
This show isnt four nights of telling the
middle how they should think and feel. Its
not an education, propaganda tool, which
Im sure the alt-right will say it is, said the
Australian actress (Six Feet Under).
Instead, she said, its an opportunity to
understand the lives of others. When she
was a little Irish Catholic girl and watched
the slavery epic Roots, she learned what it
was like to be owned by another person and
that affected me for the rest of my life.

HOUSING
Continued from page 1
Just a few months ago, the majority of the
Planning Commission favored the developers proposal that included providing 74
units through a 51 percent density bonus
one of the denser projects the city has considered in recent times. That project would
have included eight affordable units.
Since then, it was determined the voterapproved Measure P precludes the project
from going beyond Californias 35 percent
density bonus law, said Assistant City
Attorney Gabrielle Whelan.
The citizens initiative was an extension
of the circa 1991 Measure H, which limits
heights in the area to 55 feet and density to
up to 50 units per acre.
The exterior of the proposed five-story
building will remain the same, however, the
project has been reduced to 68 units with
plans for more three-bedroom units, as well
as 10 fewer parking spaces. Instead of eight
below-market units, the project will include
just six such condominiums, according to
the city.
Mayor David Lim noted neighbors of the
Hillsdale Terrace project brought up similar
issues that originally sparked Measure P.
Measure P speaks to the concerns our
community has about density and traffic and
overcrowding and how to address that problem, Lim said. I think that the neighborhood brings up [similar] concerns.
Walter Schwartz lives nearby and raised
concerns about the height and density of the
project citing concerns traffic and parking
would worsen should the project come to

that a portion of the project is about 71 feet
tall.
Im happy that the voters got what they
voted for, Schwartz said. I wish their vote
of the 55-foot limit was also respected
instead of worked around.
But during the October Planning
Commission meeting commissioners
praised the modern looking structure as a
way to help address the affordable housing
crisis, particularly as the site is close to
mass transit.
The site, just north of the Hillsdale
Shopping Center, would be across from the
future relocated Caltrain station. Residents
may also have an easier time traversing to
the massive Bay Meadows mixed-use development as grade separations are planed for
25th, 28th and 31st avenues at the train
tracks.
Albert Costa, the project applicant with
Costa Brown Architecture, said the site is
ideal for an infill project such as this. He
noted the citys zoning guidelines are complex and his firm is following the lead of
city staff to ensure they meet San Mateos
requirements.
The site is a great site for this project, it
is on El Camino Real, which is a main highdensity thoroughfare and the city of San
Mateo has a wonderful vision for this grand
boulevard. So this project fits perfectly,
Costa said.
They had originally proposed a 68-unit
project but opted to seek the higher density
final stop is the Tsarnaev brothers home,
which, aside from the jihadist video playing, isnt so different from the others.

to provide more of what has been asked for
by many in the region housing.
Were following the rules and regulations to create a successful project which is
going to be beneficial to the community
[by offering] more housing, Costa said,
emphasizing there is no animosity about
the reduction in density.
The proposal also includes about 13,400
square feet of ground-floor commercial
space.
Costa noted the exterior of the building
wouldnt change, but that some of the units
will be larger and theyll increase the number of three-bedroom condominiums. Its a
mix of two-, three- and four-bedroom units.
But the recent revelation about Measure
Ps effect on density didnt only affect the
Hillsdale Terrace project; it will also have
an effect on the city-owned Bay Meadows
affordable housing project, Whelan said.
The city owns a 1-acre property at the site
of the former horse race track and is in the
initial stages of working with an affordable
housing developer to create a multi-family
project for those making very low incomes.
Bridge Housing will develop the site and the
citys original scope was to seek between
68 and 72 units as a way to maximize the
lands use.
Now, Whelan said Measure P makes it
clear the project can be no more than 68
units.
The number is derived from state law that
requires communities to provide a 35 per-

THE DAILY JOURNAL


cent density bonus to projects that offer
below-market rate units. With the citys cap
of 50 units per acre, a builder can get up to
68 units per acre. Initially, Whelan said it
appeared as though the state law, which
supersedes local regulations, would permit
greater densities. But after further study, it
was determined the city is precluded from
having the required affirmative ordinance
that provides for higher density due to
Measure P, she said.
Measure P expires in 2020 and its not yet
clear whether citizens will seek a second
extension of the law originally crafted in
the early 1990s.
In other news, the City Council Tuesday
night will also consider a proposal to create
an underground sewage storage tank as part
of the Clean Water Program a $990 million plan to overhaul the wastewater treatment plant and corresponding infrastructure.
The city must comply with state mandates
that it cease discharging raw sewage into
the Bay, which occurs when the plant is at
capacity during extreme storms.
The city opted to create an underground
storage tank to capture runoff during heavy
rains and hold it for up to 24 hours before it
can be treated at the plant. Initial options to
locate the tank at a city park drew intense
opposition from neighbors in Fiesta
Meadows and Bay Meadows.
The council will provide direction on
which two out of five sites should be further
studied. The Planning Commission recently
recommended the tank not be located at a
park.

By Lindsey Bahr
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Ben Affleck is no doubt an ambitious and tasteful filmmaker, but hes gotten himself in a bit of hot water with the
bloated period gangster epic Live by Night . It looks and
sounds right and all the elements are there: A conflicted
anti-hero with a granite jaw, a fast-talkin, two-timin moll,
crooked cops, and a sweaty loyal partner. Theres the onelast-job-gone-awry, some rum-running, a few epic
shootouts and the big questions about whether or not our
man has become everything he swore he wouldnt. It seems
like enough to hold audience interest for a few hours, but
somehow even with all that going for it (not to mention a
parade of recognizable faces), Live by Night is dull as
sin.
The story is adapted by Affleck from a Dennis Lehane
novel of the same name. Lehane is the author of the source
material for some good to great films like Mystic River,
Shutter Island and Afflecks first stab at directing, Gone
Baby Gone. It was a decent gamble that Live by Night
would be pretty good, too.
Affleck has put himself front and center here as the lead,
Joe Coughlin, a once good man who became jaded after
serving in World War I. He came back to his hometown of
Boston, where his father (Brendan Gleeson) is the Police
Chief, with the intention of never answering to anyone. We
dont ever see Joe as a standup citizen, only robbing banks
and sleeping with Emma Gould (Sienna Miller), the mistress of the towns most notorious mob boss Albert White
(Robert Glenister). Naturally as soon as Emma and Joe
decide to skip town and find a new life somewhere warm
(where they come so close to saying that theyll live by
night its almost annoying that they dont), things take a
turn and Joe is left beaten to a pulp, imprisoned and alone.
When he gets out, revenge against Albert White is the only
thing on his mind, so he heads to Florida to work for a
rival.
While the Boston scenes are paint-by-numbers gangster
pic, with a few gorgeous shots thanks to cinematographer
Robert Richardson, in Florida at least the plot gets somewhat interesting as Joe pairs up with a nearly unrecognizable Chris Messina as Dion Bartolo to get in the
Prohibition-era rum business while butting heads with the
local KKK thugs, a complicated cop (Chris Cooper) and his
troublesome evangelist daughter Loretta (Elle Fanning).
Oh, and Joe also falls in love with a Cuban expat Graciela
(Zoe Saldana).
By the time Loretta becomes the main focus, and foe, of
Joe and Dion the film has already lost most of its steam.
Live by Night wants to be about everything capitalism, racism, the American dream, the hypocrisy of the good
and moral while also providing shoot em up thrills. Its
hard to do that when you dont even care for or about any of
the characters, though. In fact, there are so many characters
and so much story (not to mention at least four false endings) that it wouldnt be surprising if there exists a better
three-hour version of this.
Affleck may have done his film a disservice by making
himself the star. On screen the generally effortlessly charismatic Affleck seems to be sleepwalking through the movie
with the exception of his moments with Millers Emma
Gould. He looks out of place and uncomfortable most of the
time, and the distractingly ill-fitting jackets dont help.
It was always going to be a tricky thing to follow up a
smash like Argo, so taut and smart and thrilling. Affleck
went maximalist with Live by Night, and it was, indeed,
too much.
Live by Night a Warner Bros. release, is rated R by the
Motion Picture Association of America for strong violence, language throughout, and some sexuality/nudity.

of the series tone, Lynch replied: I


see it as a film, and a film in parts is
what people will experience. It was a
joyful, fantastic trip with this great
crew and great cast.
How many of the stories were ones
he couldnt tell in the original series,
and how many are new?
Im not at liberty to talk about
that, Lynch said. He also declined to
address why he separated from the
sequel and then rejoined it.
Earlier, Showtime Networks chief
executive David Nevins said that the
new series is the pure heroin version
of David Lynch, and Im very excited
to be putting that out.
Asked if he felt the ABC series was
unadulterated, Lynch said that he loved

solve Lauras death undermined the

Nevins said he considered the sequel
a close-ended work, but Lynch
expressed uncertainty.

are no plans for more at this point
but, Lynch added, never say never.
Returning cast members include
Kyle MacLachlan, Madchen Amick

Despite some long days of filming, MacLachlan said, It was just a
huge sense of gratitude to be there, to
be creating something we all love, to
be working with a master like David

Exorcist author Blatty dead at 89


By Hillel Italie
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Novelist and filmmaker William Peter Blatty, a former


Jesuit school valedictorian who conjured a tale of demonic possession and
gave millions the fright of their lives
with the best-selling novel and Oscarwinning movie The Exorcist, has
died. He was 89.
Blatty died Thursday at a hospital in
Bethesda, Maryland, where he lived,
his widow, Julie Alicia Blatty, told the
Associated Press. The cause of death
was multiple myeloma, a form of
blood cancer, she said.
Inspired by an incident that unfolded
in St. Louis and Washington, D.C.,
that Blatty had read about while in college, The Exorcist was published in
1971, followed two years later by the
film of the same name. Blattys story
of a 12-year-old-girl inhabited by a
satanic force spent more than a year
on The New York Times fiction bestseller list and eventually sold more

a strategic plan that seeks to ignite
growth by providing a variety of educational opportunities, said Amanda
Kim, communications manager with
county libraries.
The Lookmobile is to provide a cultural space and a community space, so
were looking at this as part of an
extension of the library where its
beyond walls and goes to creating
those exciting learning experiences,
Kim said. And it deepens our understanding of one another through science and geography and art and these
experiential ways. Its very STEAM
(Science, technology, engineering, art
and mathematics) based and it contributes to all of these critical thinking skills for people of all ages.
The Lookmobile made its debut last
month in East Palo Alto before being
stationed in Half Moon Bay this past
week. Its next voyage will be to
Atherton and San Carlos.
Outfitted with six interactive
exhibits, the Lookmobiles core
theme is about a sense of place. The
walls are lined with maps from various
eras of the regions development and
theres an area where children are
encouraged to create their own maps
whether its of the interior of their
home or the path they walk to school.
Plexiglas windows encourage kids to
explore perspective through drawing,
while a pinhole camera as well as con-

than 10 million
copies. It reached a
far wider audience
through the movie
version, directed
by
William
Friedkin, produced
and written by
Blatty and starring
William Blatty Linda Blair as the
young, bedeviled
Regan.
RIP William Peter Blatty, who
wrote the great horror novel of our
time, Stephen King tweeted Friday.
So long, Old Bill.
Even those who thought they had
seen everything had never seen anything like the R-rated The Exorcist
and its assault of vomit, blood, rotting teeth, ghastly eyes and whirlwind
head-spinning courtesy of makeup
and special effects maestro Dick
Smith. Fans didnt care that Vincent
Canby of The New York Times found it
a chunk of elegant occultist claptrap, or that the set burned down dur-

ing production. They stood for hours


in freezing weather for the winter
release and kept coming even as the
movie, with its omnipresent soundtrack theme, Mike Oldfields chilly,
tingly Tubular Bells, cast its own
disturbing spell.
From around the world came reports
of fainting, puking, epileptic fits,
audience members charging the screen
and waving rosary beads, and, in
England, a boy committing murder
and blaming The Exorcist. The Rev.
Billy Graham would allege that the
films very celluloid was evil.
I was standing in the back of a theater in New York at the first public
press screening of the film, too nervous to sit down, Blatty told IGN.com
in 2000. And along came a woman
who got up in about the fifth or sixth
row. A young woman, who started
walking up the aisle, slowly at first.
She had her hand to her head. And then
I could see her lips moving. She got
close enough, and I could hear her murmuring, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus.

torted images from the camera obscura


highlight visitors immediate surroundings. Theres also a small fog
machine hooked up to a tricycle that
spills fog over faux boulders where
kids can play.
Fog in San Mateo County has its
own unique place and experience for
people, the maps are very focused on
San Mateo, the places were bringing
it are community sites. And part of the
design is to be very open ended so people can walk through and experience it
in their own way and play with it in a
nonlinear way in whatever way is fun
for them, Kim said.
As sunshine broke through the nearly weeklong storm Friday afternoon in
Half Moon Bay, 4-year-old Leena
Loeffler-Little got to take a tour of the
Lookmobile while on her weekly walk
with her grandmother.
She marveled at the camera obscura,
observed how some of the pictures
were upside down and picked out her
favorite image. She also enjoyed drawing on the Plexiglas windows as she
traced the hand of library assistant
Cami Del Rio.
With the Half Moon Bay library currently set up in a temporary locale off
Highway 1 as the county and city are in
the midst of constructing a new facility near downtown, Del Rio said it has
been great to have the Lookmobile
open to after-school crowds.
Noting the exhibits emphasis on
place making and community identity,
Del Rio said theyve gotten visitors
engaged by having them draw maps of
their own lives after learning about

San Mateo County.


I think it kind of opens their eyes
to the world they live in, Del Rio
said, noting they learn about how their
home is in a neighborhood, which is
in a city, which is part of the county
thats part of the state. It starts giving them a grasp and a feel for that bigger picture theyre a part of.
The Lookmobile will continue to go
on tour with weeklong visits at
libraries next up in Atherton starting
Jan. 14, then San Carlos, Pacifica,
Millbrae, Brisbane, Portola Valley and
Woodside. Eventually, it will make a
second round before library officials
determine whether to create new
exhibits, Kim said.
The county was fortunate to work
with crews from the Exploratoriums
Studio for Public Spaces and received a
grant from the Pacific Library
Partnership to help fund part of its creation, Kim said.
She also agreed the variety of activities available through the Lookmobile
gives children a way to learn about,
and engage with, their surroundings.
The reason its important to focus
on place is because it contributes to a
sense of community and history and
place and connectedness, Kim said.
And what is unique about our county is
also what is unique about our community. So its a community strengthening activity as well.

SAN MATEO COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS


NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors will hold a public
hearing to consider an interim ordinance, pursuant to section 65858 of the California Government
Code, to extend the temporary moratorium on the on (1) commercial or industrial use involving
marijuana (including, without limitation, manufacture, processing, laboratory testing, labeling,
storing, wholesale, distribution and retail) within the unincorporated area of the County and (2)
outdoor planting, cultivation, harvesting, drying, or processing of marijuana plants for nonmedical

would extend the 45-day moratorium adopted by the Board of Supervisors on December 13,
2016 for an additional 10 months and 15 days, until December 12, 2017, unless the Board of Supervisors takes earlier action to extend or to end the moratorium. Adoption of the proposed ordinance requires a four-fifths vote of the Board of Supervisors.
Measures taken to alleviate the condition that led to adoption of the interim ordinance on December 13, 2016, as required by Government Code section 65858(d), are as follows:

The County has convened an interdepartmental effort to comprehensively evaluate issues related to marijuana, composed of staff from the County Managers Office, the District Attorneys Office, Environmental Health, the San Mateo County Health System, Department of Planning and Building, the San Mateo County Agricultural Commissioner, and the County Counsels
Office.

The County is working to develop a public process to facilitate input from stakeholders
regarding both medical and nonmedical marijuana.

Staff has reached out to other jurisdictions within the County to convene a County-wide
regional approach to issues relating to marijuana.

Staff has continued to research and analyze the requirements of the newly enacted
State laws governing both medical and nonmedical marijuana.

Case Number: PRO123880
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of Vidyagauri Kantilal Khatri. A Petition for Probate has been filed
by Pradeep Kantilal Khatri in the Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo. The Petition for Probate requests

the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four

Calilfornia Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under sectioin
