Mixed thoughts on mixed-use housing project

San Mateo council postpones formal decision on Hillsdale Terrace
By Samantha Weigel

After weighing neighborhood concerns with a need for more housing, the
San Mateo City Council appeared to
lean in favor of approving a controversial five-story mixed-use residential proposal that could set a benchmark for development standards along
El Camino Real.
The council met Tuesday to review
the high-density Hillsdale Terrace

housing project that seeks to transform a 1-acre site comprised of the former Taxis Hamburgers site and adjacent vacant lot into 68 condominiums,
including six affordable units.
After hearing from dozens of people
both for and against the proposal, the
council opted to delay a formal decision on the complex project as Mayor
David Lim was out sick. Instead, the
council will offer formal deliberations
at its next meeting Jan. 31.
The meeting brought up slight con-

notations from debates during last

election and San Mateos housing task
force when the council was divided
over issues such as rent control, but
instead found consensus on development as a means to address the affordability crisis. Now, officials are having to vindicate ideals that constructing new units is necessary, while faced
with pushback from residents frustrated with the impacts.

and passionate advocacy from

members of the local sports community.

The Burlingame City Council

elected to postpone a decision on
competing proposals to redevelop
the Burlingame Golf Center into
an ice rink, golf entertainment
center or badminton club in favor
of collecting more information.
The Burlingame City Council
agreed during a meeting Tuesday,
Jan. 17, to table a proposal to
enter exclusive negotiations with
any of the applicants interested in
the site after hours of deliberation

The decision comes in the wake

of corporate sports entertainment
chain Topgolf expressing interest
in opening a new location along
the Bayshore at 250 Anza Blvd.,
as well as a proposal from the MidPeninsula Ice Rink Foundation, a
local nonprofit ice rink advocacy
group, to build a facility housing
full sheets of ice and another effort
by the U. S. Badminton Center
Group to construct a center hosting between 20 and 50 courts.

Mayor Ricardo Ortiz said he

believed the Topgolf proposal was
the best on the table, pointing to a
report from a committee comprised of staff and officials suggesting the golf center and restaurant could be the largest source of
revenue for the city.
Im leaning toward Topgolf,
he said, citing serious doubts
regarding the ability of the nonprofit to raise the money necessary to build the ice rink.
But other councilmembers
offered opposing perspectives,

More evidence in case of

former cop accused of rape

The case for a former San Mateo police

officer charged with rape and sexual assault
of five women, one 17, while on duty was
continued Tuesday to give prosecutors time
for further investigation of existing evidence, according to the San Mateo County
District Attorneys Office.
Noah White Winchester, 32, first
appeared in court in July with his defense
attorney Michael Rains.
Rains is a criminal defense attorney
known for representing police accused of
misconduct, including former Bay Area
Rapid Transit officer Johannes Mehserle
who was found guilty of killing Oscar Grant
in 2009. Rains did not return a call for comment.
Winchester faces several felonies including rape, kidnapping, sexual battery, criminal threats and forcible sex offenses,

District Attorney Steve

Wagstaffe said previously.
Winchester was arrested in May 2016 outside
the home he shared with
his wife and two children
in Stockton after he was
put on indefinite leave by
the San Mateo Police
Department in October
2015 on suspicion he
raped a woman at the Coyote Point
Recreation Area. He resigned in February
Winchester was an officer with the Los
Rios Community College District, which
serves the Sacramento area, before being
hired by San Mateo police. Winchester was
employed briefly by the Sacramento Police
Department before joining the college district in 2009.

Four other victims were discovered since

the District Attorneys Office took over the
criminal investigation of the case after allegations of misconduct first arose in October
One of the victims filed a police report in
2013 claiming Winchester sexually assaulted her on a Los Rios college campus.
Charges were never filed, however, and the
claim against Winchester did not surface
before he was hired to be a San Mateo patrol
officer in January 2015.
The District Attorneys Office investigation discovered two other local victims who
claim Winchester sexually assaulted them in
separate incidents in September 2015.
Winchester is accused of sexually battery of
a woman at the Hillsdale Shopping Center
Sept. 15, 2015. A week later, Winchester
allegedly attempted to rape a woman at a San
Mateo motel, according to prosecutors.
Winchester was an evening patrol officer
in San Mateo and was only employed for 10
months before being put on leave.
He will next appear in court on Feb. 27 for
preliminary hearing. He remains in custody
on $3.1 million bail, according to prosecutors.

Janet Napolitano in hospital

over side effect of cancer care
By Kristen J. Bender

SAN FRANCISCO University of

California President Janet Napolitano, a
former U.S. Homeland Security secretary and governor of Arizona, has been
undergoing cancer treatment for five
months and was hospitalized after suffering complications, the school system revealed Tuesday.
The UC Office of the President said
Napolitano, 59, was diagnosed last
August but did not say what type of cancer she has or respond to inquiries seeking further details. Her condition had
not previously been made public and
emerged after a side effect from treatment sent her to the hospital Monday.
Her office said Napolitano has performed her duties at full capacity and is
expected to be discharged in the next
day or so. The president of the 10-campus system has kept the chairwoman of
the UC Board of Regents informed
throughout her treatment, which is nearly complete, the university said.
The rest of the board learned of
Napolitanos diagnosis in a phone call
Tuesday, followed by an email from
chairwoman Monica Lozano.
As you no doubt have observed,
Janet has been able to consistently perform her wide range of duties and extensive travel at full capacity, Lozano
wrote. Yesterday, however, she experienced side effects from her treatment
that required her to be briefly hospitalized.
A spokesman for Gov. Jerry Brown,
Evan Westrup, said Browns office was
contacted ahead of time about her illness but did not respond to a request for
more specifics about when the governor
was notified.
Napolitano is entitled to privacy
about her medical condition as long as
she can reasonably perform her duties,
said George Annas, director of the
Center for Health Law, Ethics & Human
Rights at Boston University School of
Public Health.

Frederick Brown
Frederick Brown, 87, died peacefully in San Mateo,
California, Jan. 13, 2017.
Husband of Vivienne, who died in
September 2011, he is survived by his
children and their spouses Kathleen and
David Whitten, David and Priscilla
Brown, Carolyn and John Leung and
Frederic and Fan Liqing Brown, and
grandchildren Timothy, Luke, Ian,
Matthew, Kaitlin, Aidan and Marley.
A memorial service will be 10 a.m.
Thursday, Jan. 19, at St. Catherine of
Siena Church in Burlingame, California.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make time to
share a good meal with your loved ones and strive to live
your lives as our father did, with forgiveness and compassion.


University of California President Janet Napolitano was diagnosed last August but
did not say what type of cancer she has.
This is both because medical privacy
should be presumed for everyone, and it
permits people to consider treatment
options without having to consider how
the public will react to each treatment
decision and the effects of the treatment
on the person, he said in an email.
Napolitano, who previously was
treated successfully for breast cancer,
was a two-term governor of Arizona,
serving from 2003 to 2009, before
leaving to join President Barack
Obamas Cabinet. She was secretary of
the Department of Homeland Security
from 2009 to 2013.
Before that, she served as Arizonas
attorney general from 1998 to 2003 and
as the U.S. attorney for Arizona from
1993 to 1997.
Regent Norman J. Pattiz, who had
cancer, said he had no idea Napolitano
was sick and that he supported her decision to keep her cancer diagnosis and
treatment out of the public light.
There is a tendency for people to
look you a certain way when you are in
cancer treatment, even though today
most people survive cancer treatments
and live a long and healthy life, Pattiz

Pattiz said he got the impression

Napolitano will be back at work soon
and will attend the UC Regents meeting
next week.
Napolitano now oversees the 10 UC
campuses, five medical centers, three
affiliated national laboratories, and a
statewide agriculture and natural
resources program. She is among the
highest-paid public employees in the
state, receiving an annual salary of
$570,000 and benefits totaling nearly
$150,000 a year.
As president of the system since
2013, Napolitano has fought for additional funding for higher education, and
she recently announced a policy saying
UC employees will not assist government agencies trying to enforce federal
immigration laws.
Napolitano has repeatedly sought to
ensure students in the country illegally
feel safe on UC campuses since the election of Donald Trump, who made immigration a key point of his campaign.
In the past year, she has faced ethics
scandals involving the chancellors at
two of the largest schools in the system, UC Berkeley and UC Davis, both of
whom eventually resigned.


Paulette Marie Volonte

Paulette Marie Volonte, 74, passed away peacefully on
January 12, 2017, at her home after a courageous long battle
with cancer. She was born in San Francisco to the late Grace
and Paul Volonte. She attended St. Anthonys Grammar
School, Notre Dame High School, and San Francisco City
College where she received an associates degree.
Paulette and her mother lived in San Mateo for 37 years,
having moved to be closer to their family. Paulette enjoyed
her home and loved working in her garden. She even put in a Bocce Ball court.
Paulette retired from Bank of America after 35 years, where she worked in International
Banking and later in Human Resources. After retirement she worked for H & R Block
during the tax season for 10 years.

his wife, Valentina, had just received news
that Leonors sister had come out of a coma,
and were on their way to visit her at UCSF
Medical Center. Rainville tailgated them
through the Devils Slide Tunnel just south
of Pacifica to a red light at the intersection
of Highway 1 and Linda Mar Boulevard.
Rainville drove up to the right side of
Leonors car, gesturing and yelling at the
couple. Rainville then got out of his car and
began banging on the Leonors passengers
side window, causing Leonor to get out of
the car to defend his wife, who was sitting in
the passengers seat. Rainville punched
Leonor about 10 times, kicked him, then
shoved him out of the way before he fled the
scene, according to prosecutors.
Leonor declined medical attention to continue his trip to see his sister in San
Francisco but later noticed pain in his elbow
in the arm he used to block Rainvilles kick.
Doctors later discovered multiple bone fragments from his elbow embedded in his arm
and required multiple surgeries, according to
the District Attorneys Office.
The charges were recently reduced to
felony assault without a weapon and misdemeanor battery after prosecutors interviewed
Leonors surgeon and found they were not
able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that
Rainvilles assault was the sole cause of
Leonors injuries.
Rainville will next appear in court Feb. 27
for sentencing, according to prosecutors.

Woman arrested for

stabbing over parking space
A 21-year-old woman is in jail after
allegedly stabbing another woman over a
parking space at the downtown San Mateo 7Eleven Monday evening.
At approximately 6:30 p.m., police
received a call a woman was stabbed and dispatchers quickly determined the victim was
in the parking lot of the convenience store
at 600 E. Third Ave. Officers arrived within
two minutes and contacted the 18-year-old
woman suffering from stab wounds to her
arm and hand, according to police.
Police determined the victim was sitting
in her vehicle when she was approached by
Jessica Greenbaum, 21, of San Francisco,
who argued with her over a parking space
and stabbed her. She fled in a gray
Volkswagen sedan and the victim gave
police her vehicle description and license
plate, according to police.
Shortly later, Greenbaum called dispatchers who directed her to the police department
where she was arrested and booked for
attempted homicide, assault with a deadly
weapon and criminal threats, according to
The victim was taken to the hospital with
injuries that were not life threatening,
according to police.

Eighteen million more uninsured

if Obamacare killed, not replaced
By Alan Fram

WASHINGTON Insurance premiums

would soar for millions of Americans and
18 million more would be uninsured in
just one year if Republicans scuttle much
of President Barack Obamas health care
Congress budget analysts said Tuesday.
Spotlighting potential perils for
Republicans, the report immediately
became a flashing hazard light for this
years effort by Donald Trump and GOP
lawmakers to annul Obamas law and in
a more complicated challenge institute
their own alternative.
It also swiftly became political fodder
in what is expected to be one of this
years biggest battles in Congress.
Republicans have produced several outlines for how theyd redraft Obamas 2010
statute, but theyve failed to unite behind
one plan. President-elect Trump and GOP
congressional leaders have at times
offered clashing descriptions of their
shared top goal, so eventual success is
hardly guaranteed.
Tuesdays evaluation came from the
Office, joined by Congress Joint
Committee on Taxation.
Together, they analyzed a Republicanwritten bill, vetoed by Obama last
January, that would have erased major portions of his overhaul. Those included tax
penalties for people who fail to buy insurance and for larger companies that dont
cover workers, federal subsidies to help
consumers buy policies on the laws
online marketplaces and an expansion of
Medicaid coverage for low-income people.
The new report said under such a measure, premiums for individual policies

with Donald Trump.
excluding the coverage many workers get
from employers would swell by up to
25 percent the first year after enactment
and double by 2026. The number of uninsured would reach 32 million over the
decade, the analysts said.
However, Republicans say theres a big
difference between that 2016 bill and this
years plan: Last years version would not
have replaced Obamas statute with a GOP
alternative, while Republicans insist
replacement will be an integral part of
their new health care drive.
Citing that difference, Donald Stewart,
spokesman for Senate Majority Leader
Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. , said the report
assumes a situation that simply doesnt
exist and that no one in Congress advo-

cates. AshLee Strong, spokeswoman for

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis. , called
the estimates meaningless because they
ignore plans for legislation and regulatory actions by the incoming Trump administration for revamping how people could
obtain coverage.
Nonpartisan statistics dont lie, countered Senate Minority Leader Chuck
Schumer, D-N. Y. , who said the report
showed Republican plans to void Obamas
overhaul will increase health care costs
for millions of Americans and kick millions more off of their health insurance.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, DCalif. , said it illustrated that the GOP
effort will be nothing less than a nightmare for the American people.

With clemency for Manning, attention turns to WikiLeaks head

By Eric Tucker

WASHINGTON President Barack

Obamas decision Tuesday to commute
Chelsea Mannings sentence brought fresh
attention to another figure involved in the
Army leakers case: Julian Assange.
On Twitter last week, Assanges antisecrecy site WikiLeaks posted, If Obama
grants Manning clemency Assange will
agree to US extradition despite clear
unconstitutionality of DoJ case.
The tweet garnered little attention at the
time, but quickly resurfaced on Twitter
after Obama announced he would commute
Mannings 35-year prison sentence.
Manning leaked scores of classified documents to WikiLeaks in 2010. Obamas
move will release her in May, nearly three
decades early.
But what will it mean, if anything, for

Mike Pence promises large

investment in infrastructure


Rep. Ryan Zinke, a former Navy SEAL commander, testifies

before a Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee
confirmation hearing on his nomination to be Interior
Secretary at Capitol Hill.

Interior nominee Ryan

Zinke disputes Trump on
environmental changes
By Matthew Daly

WASHINGTON Donald Trumps choice to head the

Interior Department on Tuesday rejected the president-elects
claim that climate change is a hoax, saying it is indisputable
that environmental changes are affecting the worlds temperature and human activity is a major reason.
I dont believe its a hoax, Rep. Ryan Zinke told the
Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee at his confirmation hearing. The climate is changing; man is an influence, the Montana Republican said. I think where theres
debate is what that influence is and what can we do about it.
Trump has suggested in recent weeks hes keeping an open
mind on the issue and may reconsider a campaign pledge to
back away from a 2015 Paris agreement that calls for global
reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
In contradicting Trump, Zinke cited Glacier National Park in
his home state as a prime example of the effects of climate
change, noting that glaciers there have receded in his lifetime
and even from one visit to the next.
Still, he told Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., that there is debate
about how much humans have influenced the climate.
Likely to win Senate confirmation, Zinke, 55, sketched out
a variety of purposes for the nations vast federal lands, from
hiking, hunting, fishing and camping to harvesting timber
and mining for coal and other energy sources.
The Interior Department and other U.S. agencies control
almost a third of land in the West and even more of the underground mineral estate that holds vast amounts of coal, oil
and natural gas.

Poll: Young Americans fear they will be worse off post-Trump


NEW YORK As Donald Trump

approaches his inauguration, young
Americans have a deeply pessimistic
view about his incoming administration, with young blacks, Latinos and
Asian-Americans particularly concerned about whats to come in the
next four years.
Thats according to a new
GenForward poll of Americans aged 18
to 30, which found that the countrys
young adults are more likely to expect
theyll be worse off at the end of
Trumps first term than better off. Such

young Americans are also far more

likely to think Trump will divide the
country than unite it, by a 60 percent
to 19 percent margin.
Fifty-two percent of young whites,
72 percent of Latinos, 66 percent of
Asian-Americans and 70 percent of
blacks think Trumps presidency will
lead to a more divided nation.

Putting together the pieces of affordability

hen it comes to addressing

the housing affordability
situation in this area, there
should be a range of solutions from
big to small.
Addressing the impact of the solutions should also be balanced with the
needs of current residents. That is the
crux of any proposal as elected leaders
seek to address affordability and
retain the option for the working
class to remain here.
County ofcials last week eased
restrictions on secondary units in
unincorporated areas as a way to allow
for more housing to be created in a
variety of pockets. As part of the policy, county ofcials are also seeking
ways to provide an amnesty period for
those property owners who have illegally constructed secondary units to
make sure they are safe. Additionally,
the new rules will provide some templates for those interested in constructing secondary units.
Secondary units, also known as inlaw or granny units, have been
around for some time and are often
used for family members who want to
be close by or for those who are seeking a smaller residence. With the
advent of the popularity of tiny houses, they can also provide an option
for workers seeking their own space
but without the ability to buy or rent
a larger single-family home. As a sec-

ondary unit, it also provides income
to the property owner, who can use
that income to make ends meet or
even pay the ever-rising cost of mortgages.
With new state laws that require the
alleviation of parking restrictions
and allowing property owners to
forgo public reviews, the writing is
denitely on the wall for new rules.
While the county is providing new
rules for the unincorporated areas, it
also provides a template for cities to
adopt should they so choose. Still,
individual cities have their own issues
to address. Case in point is San
Bruno. The city is grappling with the
state law that requires doing away
with the requirement to supply an
additional parking space for secondary structures within one-half mile of
a public transportation stop. The concept is giving ofcials pause because
large swaths of the city particularly already congested areas are within that designated area because of its
network of bus routes and the Caltrain
and BART station. While it will be
interesting to see what is determined
ts best for that city, it does conjure
the notion that many areas already
near public transit are dense, older and
usually low income and also affected

by crowded and narrow streets.

Ensuring there is new housing for
workers should not necessarily mean
current workers bear the brunt of the
congestion that comes with it
especially in low-income areas.
Having more secondary units close to
transit is a theoretical consideration
in that it will provide ways for those
living in them to get around without a
car. This is a worthy goal, but any
changes should also take the practical
reality into consideration particularly when those changes are being
decided upon by those who do not live
in those areas.
It is also important to recognize
there may be some opportunity for
additional units, but current conditions may not merit it or even provide
substantial nancial incentive. So
those worried about the impact should
recognize that it likely wont be that
bad, and there may even be opportunities they have not thought of such as
investments, property values and a
rejuvenation of neighborhoods.
Still, it is a topic worthy of exploration on an individual city basis and
balance is signicant part of the equation. However, providing new rules
for those interested and capable of
providing new housing is a key part
of an overall matrix of work toward
nding a variety of answers to ensure
there is sufcient housing for all in
San Mateo County.

Letters to the editor

Trumps attempts to gain a higher
level of autocratic control would
require silencing critics. It may all
begin with protests at the inauguration, where a majority of responsible
demonstrators get hijacked by a small
contingent of vandalizing, rebellious
thugs who will get all the media
attention. That will create sympathy
for Trump and outrage against everyone else protesting, as though they
were all part of one radical element.
This provides the gambit for gaining
support by misdirecting blame away
from the very ones suppressing civil
rights and onto those trying to preserve them.
As future protests continue, stricter
enforcement will be enacted, not just
against the lawless, which few would
question, but against anyone not
aligned with his own narrow views (A
resurrection of the 50s House UnAmerican activities hearings is
already being proposed). The consequence will be that the moderate, centrist elements will polarize toward the
extremes, with the country degenerating toward even more divisiveness.

reasoned voices: Ethical journalists,

Get my message?
want to reach your mind. Where is it currently
located? Ashleigh Brilliant.

Have you ever thought about how difcult it is to communicate with most people? I mean really communicate so
you understand each other and feel some kind of connection? Have you ever considered how the inability or
unwillingness to communicate well affects interpersonal,
social and, of course, national and international diplomacy? This came to mind during the political maneuvering of
the past election. As we have seen during the political
campaign and now that we have a president-elect, there are
some people who dont have a clue that they need to open
themselves up to others or how to do it. All they are about
is their own ego that they are the only ones worth listening to. I imagine you have an idea who I have in mind.
In spite of the fact that we may have good hearing and
speak the same language, there arent very many of us who
can communicate really well. On rare occasions, if were
lucky, we meet someone who we are with for maybe ve
minutes and feel an instant
kind of rapport. But more
often, there are others we
can be with all day, all year,
and even maybe a lifetime
with whom we never feel
well connected. Our relationship remains supercial.
Of course it isnt necessary to communicate on a
personal level with everyone. But being able to communicate with important
others is necessary to a satisfying and fullling life
and as for our politicians,
our countrys future. Whether we are giving someone directions to our house, trying to explain a faux pas we committed, or discussing our views on tax cuts, there are many
things that can get in the way of understanding. The following are some barriers to communication that affect us
all and will no doubt be increasingly distracting Congress
as 2017 marches on.
1). We may have preconceived ideas that get in the way.
For instance, You are a Democrat so you couldnt possibly
know what you are talking about. Or, There is only one
way to think my way.
2). We may come from totally different perspectives.
Many things, such as limited vocabulary or cultural differences can cause us to misunderstand. Though we must not
expect the other person to be like us, the people we communicate with best are those who are willing to at least
respect our differences.
3). Our gender can often lie behind misunderstanding and
lack of depth in communicating. For instance, many men
are leery of revealing their inner thoughts to others. To
them, language must remain on a safe level, indicating no
feelings. You need to transform yourself into language
based on your ability to hand over to others via your
words. It doesnt need to be eloquent or uent, but reect
some of the person behind it. John Stewart, Bridges
Not Walls.
4). We may be preoccupied. Having our minds on other
things or concentrating on what we want to say to counteract some point or being distracted by a mood or something
that happened recently can keep us from connecting.
5). Someone may have been playing a role for so long
that she is never truly herself. If a persons language is
weak, insipid, cliche-ridden and consistently ritualistic in
social situations, this says much about the persons ability and willingness to relate both to himself and others.
Language not only reects his encapsulation, but becomes
one of his instruments of his self-imprisonment.
Bridges, not Walls.
6). Last, but not least, we may completely lack empathy
no ability to put ourselves, even a little bit, into someone elses shoes. At the extreme are psychological aberrations such as extreme narcissism, in which a person is
only interested in impressing others, having the upper
hand and/or making himself look important. He may act
like he is interested in us, but its only to make an impression and generating devotees.
If we are not able to communicate well with at least a few
people much of the time, we will very likely have the feeling (conscious or unconscious) that something is missing
that we are alone in this crazy world and sometimes will
go to great lengths to compensate. Of course, for productive and satisfying communication, we have to be willing
to open up and let others in. Those in Congress whose
minds are so sclerotic and a president-elect who is extremely narcissistic so that any kind of meaningful connection
is impossible can do nothing but jeopardize the future of

Bank stocks drags down indexes; dollar drops

By Stan Choe




NEW YORK A bad day for

bank stocks pulled the Dow Jones
industrial average to its third
straight loss Tuesday as many of
the patterns that have propelled
markets since Election Day last
year snapped into reverse.
The Dow Jones industrial average fell 58.96 points, or 0.3 percent, to 19,826.77, cutting into
the gain it had made since Donald
Trumps surprise victory in
November. The Standard & Poors
500 index fell 6.75, or 0.3 percent, to 2, 267. 89. The Nasdaq
composite fell 35.39, or 0.6 percent, to 5,538.73.
The main culprit for the weakness was the financial sector,
whose 2.3 percent drop was nearly
triple that of any of the other 10
sectors that make up the S&P 500.
The losses came even though
Morgan Stanley on Tuesday morning joined the list of banks to
report better-than-expected earnings for the fourth quarter.
Part of the reason for the losses
was likely Tuesdays drop in bond
yields. Bank stocks have often
been trading in the opposite direction of bond yields, and the yield
on the 10-year Treasury note fell
to 2.32 percent from 2.38 percent


late Friday. Yields on two-year and

30-year Treasurys also sank.
Another reason may lie in how
well bank stocks had been performing in the months earlier:
Financial stocks in the S&P 500
jumped 17 percent in the two
months following the election,
more than any other sector in the
S&P 500.
Youre seeing a day where
stocks that have been strong are
pulling back a little bit, and
investors are putting money into
some of the laggards, said Mike
Barclay, senior portfolio manager

Recovered SpaceX rocket

LOS ANGELES The first stage of a SpaceX rocket that
landed on a platform floating in the Pacific Ocean after a
weekend launch has arrived in the Port of Los Angeles.
Spectators watched Tuesday as the landing barge entered
the harbor with the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket standing vertically.
Justin Everhart of nearby Long Beach described it as a
testament to human achievement.
The Falcon 9 put 10 satellites into orbit Saturday after
being launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base northwest

When the rockets second stage took over to complete the

fired its engines to land on the barge.

Wal-Mart to add about

10,000 retail jobs in the U.S.
NEW YORK Wal-Mart plans to add about 10,000 retail
jobs in the U.S. as it opens new stores and expands existing
locations. The worlds biggest retailer said Tuesday that its
plans will also generate about 24,000 construction jobs.
The jobs will come from the opening of 59 new, expanded
and relocated Wal-Mart and Sams Club locations as well as
e-commerce services that were previously announced.
Wal-Mart is opening fewer stores this year, but still
adding jobs as it offers more positions in online grocery
pickup, trainers for its new academies for hourly workers and
construction jobs for remodels.
The rate is consistent with previous hiring in recent years,
says Lorenzo Lopez, a Wal-Mart spokesman. Media reports
have also said, however, that Wal-Mart plans to cut hundreds
or even about 1,000 jobs at its corporate headquarters by the
end of the month.

GM to add or keep 7,000 U.S. jobs,

make $1 billion factory investment
By Tom Krisher

DETROIT General Motors plans

to invest $1 billion in U.S. factories
and add thousands of new white-collar
jobs, measures that have been in the
works for years but were announced
Tuesday after criticism from Presidentelect Donald Trump.
In all, the Detroit automaker said it
will create or keep 7,000 jobs in the
next few years, including about 2,000
at factories. Another 5,000 new positions will be created at its auto financing arm and to develop advanced technology, electric and autonomous vehi-

cles and information technology.

Trump has demanded the auto industry build more cars in the U.S. GM said
these latest actions have been in the
works since well before the election,
Morrissey acknowledged its a good
time to announce new jobs in the U.S.
Trump will be sworn in as the nations
45th president Friday.
Theres no question there is an
emphasis on job creation in the U.S.
right now, he said. This is good timing for us to share what we are doing.
Morrissey said most of the new positions would be in Michigan, with exact
locations to be revealed at a later date.

The long-planned new white-collar jobs

will come in the next two or three years.
GM said the factory investment will
create or keep around 1,500 jobs at
unspecified factories. In addition, 450
new pickup truck axle-making jobs
that will be moved to Michigan from
Mexico. GM also said an unidentified
company that will make parts for the
next-generation pickups will move
100 jobs from Mexico to Michigan.
Trump has attacked GM and other
automakers for building vehicles in
Mexico and shipping them to the U.S.
He has threatened to impose a 35 percent border tax on automotive imports
from Mexico.

EU wary as U.K. PM May signals clean Brexit


LONDON Britains future outside

the European Union became much
clearer Tuesday: Its so long to the single market, goodbye to the European
Court of Justice and farewell to the
freedom of movement for workers.
In a long-awaited speech, Prime
Minister Theresa May finally revealed
the U.Ks hand as it prepares to start
EU exit talks. She said the U.K. wants
to free itself from EU governance and
stop paying millions into its coffers,
but still remain friends, allies and tariff-free trading partners with the soon-

to-be 27 nation
We want to buy
your goods and
services, sell you
ours, trade with you
as freely as possible, and work with
one another to
Theresa May make sure we are all
safer, more secure
and more prosperous through continued friendship, May said in a speech
to diplomats and dignitaries beneath
the gilded paintwork and chandeliers
of a Georgian London mansion.

You will still be welcome in this

country as we hope our citizens will be
welcome in yours, she said.
Pro-Brexit British politicians
praised the speech, and the pound rallied from recent lows as May provided
more details of the path ahead for the
split with the EU and vowed that
Britain would remain a great global
trading nation open to business and
talent from around the world.
Others called Mays vision wildly
ambitious, like a divorcing couple
who hope to remain best friends, share
the kids and keep each others front
door keys.

British pound bought $1.2396 as
of Tuesday afternoon, up sharply
from $1.2190 late Friday.
May said in her speech that the
U.K. will make a clean break from
the European Union and depart its
single market. She also acknowledged for the first time that
Britains Parliament will be able
to vote on the final deal.
Uncertainty about the pending
divorce has shaken investors
since June, when the U.K. voted to
quit the European Union. The
pound remains more than 15 percent weaker against the dollar than
it was in June.

high-brow effort to make a contrast

with an incoming U.S. leader whose
own words regularly stirred controversy at home and abroad and created
new doubts about U.S. leadership in
the world.
We must remain committed to promoting free trade and investment
through opening up and say no to protectionism, Xi told an opening meeting of the WEF. Pursuing protectionism is like locking oneself in a dark
room. While wind and rain may be kept

Warriors break ground on new S.F. arena

Kiley Russell

SAN FRANCISCO The Golden State

Warriors broke ground Tuesday on their $1
billion, privately funded San Francisco
arena, further cementing the teams decision
to leave Oakland where theyve played for
more than 40 years.
The 11-acre project at 16th and Third
streets in the citys Mission Bay neighborhood includes an 18,000-seat arena and
600,000 square feet of office space, as well
as a new 5.5-acre park.

The arena, dubbed Chase Center, was

approved by the Board of Supervisors in
2015 and had been stalled by design issues
and litigation ever since, but earlier Tuesday
the California Supreme Court declined to
review the case, effectively clearing the way
for the project to proceed.
The groundbreaking ceremony featured
remarks from team president Rick Welts,
owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber, as well as
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, head coach
Steve Kerr and Kevin Durant, the teams
superstar forward.

and political processes
were for the project,
which is expected to
open in time for the
2019-2020 NBA season.
To think that this
great venue is going to
be done in 28 months,
Lacob said. Thats half
the time it took to get it

Looking down at the pile of earth into
which the ceremonial shovels would soon

be plunged, Guber wondered if this was the dirt

that was thrown at us during the last four-and-ahalf years.
Guber also called the
new arena a house of
dreams that will not just
host basketball games
Peter Guber but also will provide the
Bay Area with a new
venue for concerts, political conventions
and all manner of other events.

A common theme of the day was how dif-

Sequoia pulls away for win

By Terry Bernal

Theres something about getting their feet

held to the re that brings out the best in the
Sequoia boys basketball team.
The Cherokees currently tied atop the
Peninsula Athletic League South Division
with Menlo-Atherton saw little challenge
through last weeks league openers, outscoring their rst two opponents 172-137.
In travelling to Hillsdale Tuesday night,
against a Knights team that notoriously
gives them trouble, the Cherokees had their
hands full for the rst three quarters of play.
While Sequoia (3-0 PAL South, 13-2 overall) led the whole way en route to a 68-55
victory, Hillsdale (1-2, 9-7) managed to get
within striking distance at several junctures.
But all it would take to spark the Cherokees
was for the Knights to close it to a one-score
differential. Then the fast-paced, sharpshooting squad that hung 91 points on
Woodside last Friday the best singlegame output with head coach Fine Lauese at
the helm responded with gusto every
Weve been tested all preseason and
weve responded in a positive way, Lauese
The test for Sequoia Tuesday night was
solving Hillsdales zone defense, something the Cherokees have seen very little of
this season. It made for some shaky ball
control, but that was epidemic for both
teams, with the Knights committing 19
turnovers to Sequoias 15.
If we had just taken care of the ball and
made some of those shots inside, I think we
would have been up 15 at halftime and built
on that, Lauese said.
But the difference of the game was at the
outset of the fourth quarter, after Hillsdale
senior Kiko Sandoval hit 1 of 2 free throws
to close the score to 45-44. Sequoia
responded with a 10-point run to put the
game away. Ball control, again, was the critical element of the nal period, as Hillsdale
coughed up the ball ve times in the opening three minutes of the quarter while
Sequoia committed just one turnover Sequoia guard NJai LeBlanc drives to the hoop in the Cherokees 68-55 win at Hillsdale Tuesday

Katie Guenin has been on a tear since the

outset of Peninsula Athletic League Bay

play has fronted a near-flawless league start
for her Menlo-Atherton Bears.
Guenin converted both M-A goals in a 2-1

Bears maintain outright possession of first

Through M-As three league wins, Guenin has
racked up an unreal eight goals, marking the
best three-game span of her four-year varsity
With the match tied 0-0 at halftime, Guenin
got M-A on the board with a tenacious effort
in the 43rd minute, pouncing on a ball that
seemed to be in the grasp of the Aragon goalkeeper, only to spring loose on a bobble.
Guenin was right there to pick it up and glide
around the keeper for an easy tap in.

NDB,CSUSsettlefor WBAL draw

Girls soccer

By Nathan Mollat

Both the Notre Dame-Belmont and Crystal

Springs girls soccer teams are still trying to
find out where they stand in the West Bay
Athletic League Foothill Division hierarchy.
In a division that features defending
Central Coast Section Division II champ
Menlo School and CCS Division II finalist
Sacred Heart Prep, both the Tigers and
Gryphons are still trying to determine where
they belong.
Right now, they both belong near the top
of the table as they finished in a 1-1 draw in
Belmont Tuesday afternoon.
Notre Dame-Belmont (1-1-1 WBAL
Foothill, 10-1-2 overall), which jumped out
of the gate with a 9-0-1 record, has already
lost five starters to injury this season.
Crystal Springs (1-0-2, 7-1-2) is moving
up from the WBALs Skyline Division for the
first time in program history, so both coaches were mostly satisfied with the draw.
This team didnt win a game in conference
last year, said first-year Notre Dame coach
Paul McCallion. The Tigers played in the
much more rugged West Catholic Athletic
League last year.
If you asked me to be 10-1-2, would I take
it? Absolutely.
For Crystal Springs coach Michael Flynn,
the Gryphons rise to the elite level of the
WBAL has been a multi-year work in
progress. They finally took the next step
this year so Flynn is just looking to prove
the Gryphons belong.
So far, so good. In addition to the tie with
Notre Dame, the Gryphons have a win over
Well take a point at Notre Dame, Flynn
said. Getting a point in this league is huge
and were getting points off the top
Both teams had their chances to pull out a
win Tuesday, although Notre Dame had the
better opportunities. But the one weak link
that has plagued the Gryphons for the last
couple season, goalkeeping, suddenly is a
strength this year. Elaine Chen is only a
freshman, but she is playing beyond her
years. She was a little shaky in the opening
minutes of Tuesdays game, allowing a shot,
which was wide of the goal, to get under her
for a corner kick.
But when she was called on to make gamesaving plays she was up to the task. Chen
finished with seven saves, but none were
bigger than the pair of kick saves she made
against Notre Dames Ava Cholakian, who
was making dangerous runs for the Tigers all
game long. In the 34th minute, Notre Dame

midfielder Luca Deza made a perfect pass
through the Crystal Springs back line.
Cholakian ran onto the ball and with a step
on her defender, broke in on Chen.
Chen, however, stood her ground and managed to get a left foot on Cholakians shot to
direct it wide for a corner.
Four minutes later, Cholakian had another
shot turned away by a second Chen kick save.
When the teams knows they have someone who can make those saves, it reinvigorates them, Flynn said.
Those were just two of the 15 shots the
Tigers managed get off, but none were as dangerous as those two Cholakian chances.
I thought we missed two or three
chances, McCallion said. I thought
[Cholakian] could have put a few balls away.

New Cal coach Wilcox embraces challenge

By Josh Dubow

BERKELEY With more than a half-century without a Rose Bowl berth, tougher academic standards than most Pac-12 schools and
lackluster fan support in a pro-sports focused
market, there are plenty of hurdles for a football coach at California.
Coach Justin Wilcox took the job for the
Golden Bears because he embraces those
obstacles and he wants players who feel the
same way as he seeks to rebuild a program that
has one winning record in the past five years
and no conference championships since 1958.
When you come here, there are challenges, Wilcox said at his introductory news
conference Tuesday. You dont come here and
go through school and just go through the
motions. Youll be challenged in the classroom, challenged on the football field and
learn to interact in a dynamic society. I believe
in that and that helps guys grow.
Wilcox faces many hurdles in his new job
replacing the recently fired Sonny Dykes less
than three weeks before national signing day.
He has to put together a coaching staff, evaluate the players already on campus and try to
keep together, and even add to, a recruiting

class that committed to a

different staff.
Athletic director Mike
Williams fired Dykes after
four seasons on Jan. 8
because he wanted a coach
committed to Cal instead
of flirting with other jobs
and needed someone who
Justin Wilcox could excite a fan base that
often stayed away from
Memorial Stadium in recent years as the Bears
teamed porous defenses with sometimes exciting offenses while posting a 19-30 record.
Williams had five finalists for the job but
chose a former Cal assistant with a defensive
background and familiarity with the Pac-12 as
an assistant for seven years at three schools in
the conference.
He truly gets this place, he truly gets coaching in the West, Williams said. He came in
and was very organized and thoughtful. He
knew what he wanted to do and who he wanted
to hire. ... Its a special place and I think hell
treat it as a special place.
While Dykes flirted with job openings at
Houston and Baylor this past offseason in part
because of his concern about increased academic standards for recruits, the Bears hope Wilcox

is someone who wants to stick around after

more than a decade of being on a self-described
windy path as a top defensive coach.
The former Oregon defensive back began his
coaching career in 2001 as a graduate assistant
at Boise State. He spent three years as linebackers coach under Jeff Tedford at Cal from
2003-05 when the Bears nearly ended their
Rose Bowl drought during a 10-win season
with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback in 2004.
Wilcox has spent the past 11 years as a
defensive coordinator with stops at Boise
State, Tennessee, Washington, Southern
California and finally Wisconsin, where he
helped the Badgers field a top 10 defense and
win the Cotton Bowl.
Wilcox has worked and played for many successful coaches, including Tedford, Chris
Petersen, Dan Hawkins, Mike Bellotti, and
Paul Chryst.
Ive been extremely fortunate to work for
and with people I learned so much from, he
said. Each step along the way, Ive seen it
done a lot of different ways. Im not trying to
be any of those people. I always try to take
pieces and make it my own.
Wilcox has begun putting together his staff,
having hired former Eastern Washington
coach Beau Baldwin as offensive coordinator

and longtime Oregon offensive line coach

Steve Greatwood to fill that role on the Bears.
The Bears will look very different under
Wilcox than Dykes. Wilcox said he will recruit
tight ends as Cal moves from the spread Bear
Raid offense that relied on four receivers
almost exclusively to a more balanced offense
with tight ends and more power concepts.
While he will delegate most of the offensive
responsibilities to Baldwin, Wilcox said he
will be more involved on defense where he
wants to find players who can fit into his base
3-4 system.
Cal ranked 125th in total defense, 127th in

Kyle Shanahan becomes last candidate in 49ers coach search

By Josh Dubow

SANTA CLARA The search for a new

San Francisco 49ers coach has narrowed in
on Atlanta offensive coordinator Kyle
Shanahan after the only other candidate
remaining pulled out of consideration.
Seattle offensive line coach Tom Cables
agent, Doug Hendickson, tweeted Tuesday
that Cable is reaffirming his commitment
to the Seahawks and thanked the 49ers for
their interest. That follows New England
offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels
pulling out on Monday and leaves Shanahan
as the only remaining candidate.
The Niners cant hire Shanahan until the
Falcons season ends. Atlanta hosts Green
Bay in the NFC championship on Sunday. If
the Falcons win, the 49ers could request a
second interview with Shanahan during the
bye week next week.
Shanahan is the son of two-time Super
Bowl winning head coach Mike Shanahan,
who also won a title as offensive coordinator in San Francisco in 1994.

Kyle Shanahans stock

as a candidate has
climbed as his Atlanta
offense has flourished.
Atlanta led the NFL in
scoring, averaging 33.8
points per game, and
quarterback Matt Ryan
was picked as a first-team
Kyle Shanahan AP All-Pro this season.
Shanahan got his first
NFL job as an offensive quality control
coach in Tampa Bay in 2004. He also served
as an offensive coordinator in Houston,
Washington and Cleveland before arriving
in Atlanta last season.
The 49ers have the only coach opening
left in the NFL after the other five vacancies
have all been filled.
Three coaches who interviewed with team
CEO Jed York have already taken jobs elsewhere, with Washington offensive coordinator Sean McVay getting hired by the Los
Angeles Rams, Carolina defensive coordinator Sean McDermott getting the job in
Buffalo and Bills interim coach Anthony
Lynn taking over the Chargers.

Former college swimmer

said hazing ended career

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. A former swimmer

at a southwestern Missouri university says
hazing that he and others endured during his
freshman year left him with physical and
mental injuries that ended his athletic career.
The allegations from Evan Petrich, 18,
were confirmed Monday night by Drury
University Director of Athletics Mark Fisher,
who said during a news conference that the
school in Springfield has toughened its hazing policy, the Springfield News-Leader
Petrich said the abuse occurred during an
initiation week in September 2015 when he
and other freshmen swimmers were taken
blindfolded to a home and held in a basement
while being forced to drink alcohol until
some vomited and others nearly blacked out.
At other times, they were hit by dodgeballs
while naked, forced to watch pornographic
movies and were asked to rank female swimmers by their looks, he said.
He said hes being treated for conversion
disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder
caused by the hazing.
The school investigated after Petrich complained to Tijuana Julian, the schools dean of
students after the 2015-16 school year.
Members of the swim team were interviewed

and corroborated Petrichs story, Fisher and

Julian said.
We had enough things that were confirmed
that he told us, I think there were enough common things that we found there was a policy
violation, Julian said.
In response, the school, which has about
3,600 students, increased its penalties for
hazing and said in a statement that it would
not tolerate such behavior among studentathletes. The policies have been in effect
since last fall but received renewed attention
after Petrich discussed the hazing on his
Facebook page and in media interviews last
The changes include educational programming for all student-athletes. Penalties for a
first-violation hazing will increase from 20
community service hours to 40, and the fine
will now be $200 instead of $100. For a second violation, punishment will range from
suspension for one semester to expulsion.
Petrich doesnt believe the new policies are
strong enough.
With this, the school is tolerating it,
Petrich said. They are just saying, Oh, do it
once, but just dont do it again. Or if you do it
again, make sure we dont know about it.
Both Fisher and Julian defended allowing a
second violation before a possible suspension or expulsion.

Vance Joseph was hired in Denver before

he could interview with San Francisco.
York said he was open to hiring either the
coach or general manager first. He said the
primary goal in the search is finding a
coach and general manager who can work
well together.
He has interviewed nine candidates for
general manager although Seattle co-director of player personnel Trent Kirchner
pulled out on Tuesday, according to NFL

The other eight candidates are Seattle codirector of player personnel Scott Fitterer,
Arizona vice president of player personnel
Terry McDonough, ESPN analyst Louis
Riddick, Carolina assistant GM Brandon
Beane, Indianapolis vice president of football operations Jimmy Raye III, Minnesota
assistant GM George Paton, Green Bay
director of football operations Eliot Wolf
and Packers director of player personnel
Brian Gutekunst.

Packers-Falcons expected
to produce a lot of offense
By Charles Odum


Menlo-Atherton goalkeeper Breanna Sandoval deflects a close-range shot

by Dons senior Maddie Eclevia in the Bears 2-1 win Tuesday at Aragon.

Continued from page 11
Guenins second score also came
off a rebound after both M-A junior
Diana Morales and sophomore Yara
Gomez Zavala were denied. But
Guenin put herself right in the face
of the goalkeeper after Zavalas
miss, allowing her to wrestle
another loose ball and slam it
home to stake the Bears to a 2-0
advantage in the 63rd minute.
If the ball is still in play, Im
not going to let them take it away,
Guenin said. I am going to try to
take it away and run with it.
To that point, M-A (3-0 in PAL
Bay, 4-3-1 overall) hadnt given up
a goal in league play, having shut
out Carlmont and Burlingame
through opening week. With the
strong play of junior goalkeeper
Breanna Sandoval, the Bears still
havent given up a goal from the
field, as Aragons only score came
off the foot of junior Toni
Tsamasfyros via penalty kick on
the final play of the match.
Sandoval deserves much of the
credit for Tuesdays near shutout.
She produced three saves, all fairly
specular ones, including a secondhalf effort in which she leaped
straight up on a fade by Dons midfielder Sonia Chan and used every
bit of her fingertips to push the
ball upwards. She got just enough
on it as the ball careened off the
crossbar and out.
Still, Sandoval relied on a little
help from her friends to keep the
near shutout in tact. Team Ali
consisting of senior center defenders Allison Galbraith and Ali
Sivilotti was all over an array of
Aragon attacks in the second half.
But, the defensive play of the
game heck, make that the outright play of the game was produced by M-A sophomore defender
Maggie Hall.
Halls heroics came toward the
end of the first half in the 39th
minute, when Chan sent a pass in
for junior Taylin Nguyen. With a
advanced too quickly and Nguyen
simply maneuvered to the left and
tapped the ball past her. The soft
touch looked destined to break the
scoreless tie, but Hall who was
a good 20 yards out of the play
when it started had been hustling over and used an all out
sprint to outrun the ball, catching
up with it inside one yard of the
goal line.
That was insane, Sandoval

said. She totally covered me

on that one.
Hall a varsity track star,
who earned the
PAL championships in each
the 100- and
Maggie Hall 200-meter dash
last year as a
freshman finished her rigorous
run to the ball with a quick dive to
clear the threat with a creative
I knew it was going to be close
so I had to dive for it, Hall said.
M-A head coach Jason Luce said
he saw Hall make a similar play
last season at the junior-varsity
level, so he wasnt entirely surprised with her heroics. That isnt
to say he wasnt impressed.
Shes a hustle player and somebody any team would love to
have, Luce said.
Aragons best second-half
chance was in the 58th minute
when senior Maddie Eclevia challenged Sandoval just inside the
penalty box. Sandoval again
charged the play but this time
leaped right into the bullet off the
foot of Eclevia to deflect it away.
Dons forward Abby Chang wasnt on the attack as much as Aragon
head coach Nick Dye would have
liked, but he said that was by
design. The freshman is the fastest
player on the team and was tasked
more with moving the ball through
traffic in attempts to distribute.
We played well, Dye said. We
played all from the back and played
brilliant, I thought. We just struggled in the final third. Preseason
weve been lightning up there.
Weve got to bring that feeling and
mentality back.
Chang has proven a force in her
relatively brief varsity career. The
freshman made her varsity debut
Dec. 6 against Cupertino and
scored a hat trick in a 5-1 Aragon
Later that month, she went on to
score six goals through three
games in a tournament in Fremont.
It was an effort that led the Dons (11-2, 6-2-2) to a second-place finish; they actually tied Homestead
1-1 through regulation in the
championship game earning a
tie in their overall record but
losing the tourney title on penalty
So even up 2-0 Tuesday,
Sandoval said she never felt relaxed
knowing what the Aragon offense
is capable of.
It was a close game, Sandoval
said. They fought hard toward the
end. We couldnt give up.

Atlanta Falcons and Green Bay
Packers appear poised to provide a

Weve played a lot of great teams
with great players at quarterback.

need to.
Matthews said the weekly message from offensive coordinator
Kyle Shanahan is I dont know if
were going to have to win 6-3 or
Of those alternatives, 40-37
appears to be the more likely target, in part because the Atlanta and
Green Bay defenses dont dominate the statistics like their offensive counterparts.

Patriots happy to be home for

latest trip to AFC title game
By Kyle Hightower


New England Patriots have had
what seems like an annual spot in
the AFC championship game over
the past decade.
But the fact that this years game
is at home could factor into
whether they are able to make a
return trip to the Super Bowl.
The Patriots became the first
team since the 1970 merger to
advance to the AFC title game in
six straight seasons with their win
over the Houston Texans last
The Patriots are 5-1 at home in
AFC championship games, with
their lone loss coming in 2013
against the Ravens in Ray Lewis
final trip to Foxborough.
While being at home doesnt
guarantee victory, playing the
game at Gillette Stadium is welcomed by a team that has been on
the road in two of their past three
trips to the AFC title game. Both
of those road games ended in losses to Denver, including a 20-18
defeat last season.
Its the energy. You get out
there and everyone is really energetic. The fans are really intense,
receiver Chris Hogan said Tuesday.
At the end of the day, its

another football game, and I just

have to approach it like that, just
the way Ive been approaching
every single game this year. Go
out there, play my best, play good
football and try to help this team
win as much as I can.
Special teams captain Matt
Slater acknowledged that New
Englands performance against the
Texans could have been better, but
said no one is taking anything for
granted about this latest shot at a
Super Bowl berth.
Anytime you win a playoff
game, whether you play well or
not, if you win the game thats all
that matters, Slater said.
I think we all appreciate the
opportunity that we have. Could
we have played better? Certainly.
But we could also be at home.
The Steelers and coach Mike
Tomlin specifically can expect
to get an even more hostile reception than usual from the Patriots
This comes after Tomlin was
broadcast using a derogatory
expletive to describe the Patriots
during a postgame speech to his
team following Pittsburghs divisional-round win over Kansas
Unbeknownst to Tomlin, the
speech was aired on a social media
livestream by Pittsburgh receiver

Antonio Brown.
Tomlin apologized for his use of
regrettable language on Tuesday.
But he said hes not worried about
it having an impact on his teams
preparations this week.
We are in the AFC championship. You arent going to creep
in the back door of New England
and win a football game, and creep
out of there with an AFC championship, he said. I am not worried
about our teams ability to deal
with the potential distractions.
Slater said he continues to have
respect for Tomlin and didnt think
his comments would serve as any
extra motivation.
At the end of the day the only
thing that is gonna matter is what
we do in between those white lines
on Sunday, Slater said. What is
said or what is done off the football field it really doesnt matter.
Its about executing on Sunday.
Notes: Receiver Chris Hogan
said he is feeling good after he
left Saturdays win in the third
quarter with a thigh injury. He said
he could have come back into
game, but the decision was made
with the training staff for him not
to go back in. Just had a little
minor setback in the game, but Im
working back every single day and
feeling better every day, Hogan

throughout the closing eight minutes.
Obviously Sequoia has some
big, physical, strong guys,
Hillsdale head coach Brett
Stevenson said. They start jumping the passing lanes and sped us
up a little bit. It was hard because I
think for three quarters we were
pretty composed. We ran our halfcourt stuff pretty well and forced
them to run their half-court stuff.
Weve just got to be more careful
with the ball.
That was a tough order with
Sequoia point guard NJai LeBlanc
on the oor. The senior turned in a
splendid all-around performance,
falling one rebound shy of a double-double with a game-high 16
points along with nine board, and
added six assists, four steals and a
blocked shot.
We were ready to play, just
shots werent falling in the beginning, LeBlanc said. And we
werent locking down; we werent
focused on defense. We wanted this
game. But we overlooked them.
That all changed in the fourth
quarter. Sequoia shot 42.1 percent
on the night, boosted by going 8
for 12 from the eld in the nal
period, a performance made possible by spreading the court with
uid passing.

We want to get as many in transition as we can, LeBlanc said.

Then well be ready after that.
Sequoia went on a similar run in
the second quarter when Hillsdale
closed to within a point at 18-17.
LeBlanc answered with his rst of
three 3-pointers on the night to
spark a 10-2 Cherokees run.


Sequoia senior Ziggy Lauese, right,

goes to the hoop against Hillsdales
Isaiah Cozzolino Tuesday night.
Clinging to the 1-point lead in
the opening seconds of the fourth
quarter, a stellar half-court stand
saw junior Pedram Attari hit center
Ziggy Lauese 10 points and 13
rebounds with an assist to up
the lead to 47-44. The Cherokees
came up with a steal and again
pounded the post to Ziggy Lauese,
but the 6-6 junior returned the
favor by kicking out a pass to
Attari in the corner for a 3-pointer.
Next time down, Sequoia senior
Nathan Schult muscled for an
offensive rebound and a putback.
Then coming off another Hillsdale
turnover, LeBlanc pushed the
action in transition to feed junior

equalizer. Notre Dame earned a corner kick
four minutes after the break. Deza played a
short ball to Cholakian, who sent a cross to
the front of the Crystal Springs goal.
Just as Notre Dame failed to clear the ball
out of danger resulted in the Gryphons firsthalf goal, Crystal Springs suffered the same
fate. The Gryphons, too, could not clear the
ball away, which ended up on the foot of
Deza, whose shot from 20 yards out hit the
underside of the crossbar and bounced down
over the goal line for the tying goal.
In the 55th minute, a Deza free kick from

Cozzolino scored a team-high 15
points and battled in the paint
throughout. The 6-5 senior totaled
six rebounds, while senior Sean
Godtfredsen paced Hillsdale with
eight boards. The two kept the
Knights on pace in the paint, as
Sequoia outrebounded Hillsdale by
the slight margin of 36-34
I thought Cozz did a really good
job, Stevenson said. I thought
he battled and was tough. And
obviously tip your hat to Ziggy
and Bene and some of those guys.
Their length, they nished some
shots around the rim and at times
we just didnt nish when they
needed to.
For Hillsdale, who hasnt played
a road game since Dec. 30,
Tuesdays loss marks the end of a
long home stand. The Knights
now embark on a four-game road
trip and wont return to Zugelder
Gymnasium until Feb. 1.

near the right sideline skipped off the crossbar and in the 68th, Chen once again denied
the Tigers when she pushed another Deza
shot over the top.
In the waning moments of the game, it
appeared as if the Gryphons had pulled out
the game-winner when Molly Schoberl hammered a shot on goal from 40 yards. Stogner
had wandered off her goal line and as the ball
headed toward the goal, it was apparent
Stogner was in trouble. The ball bounced and
seemed to find the back of the net, but it
quickly ricocheted back into the field of play.
Everyone looked to the officials and the
assistant referee on initially signaled goal.
But following a conversation with the head
referee, it was determined that the ball had
actually bounced off a post behind the goal.
Moments the whistle blew to end the game.

EU food waste:
88M tons a year
By Raf Casert

Cauliflower is surprisingly versatile, too. Pulsed in a food processor, it ends up looking and feeling like white rice. Indeed, given
that its high in fiber and an assortment of vitamins and minerals, cauliflower is a healthy alternative to white rice.

Cauliflower is versatile
By Sara Moulton

Until pretty recently, there was

nothing sexy about cauliflower.
Boiled or steamed, its bland at best.
And if you overcook it, youd better
duck or suffer the smell of dirty diapers. But roasting or sauteing cauliflower is a different story. The veggies
natural sugars caramelize and its tasty
inner cauliflower suddenly blossoms.
Think popcorn with an attitude.
Cauliflower is surprisingly versatile, too. Pulsed in a food processor, it
ends up looking and feeling like white
rice. Indeed, given that its high in
fiber and an assortment of vitamins
and minerals, cauliflower is a healthy
alternative to white rice.
In the interest of coaxing out cauliflowers best flavor, I have cooked this
recipes allotment as if it were fried
rice, sauteing it until golden. The
rice is then infused with the usual
Asian suspects scallions, ginger,
garlic, soy sauce and sesame oil and
bulked up with mushrooms, bacon and
peas. (Vegetarians are welcome to

its second chance, toss it in. And if
you need an excuse to go Asian, consider the Lunar New Year, which begins
Jan. 28. Otherwise, feel free to enjoy
this recipe year-round.

Start to finish: 1 hour (40 active)
Servings: 4
1 small cauliflower (about 1 3/4
1/4 cup plus 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil, divided
2 large eggs
Kosher salt and freshly ground black
4 ounces Canadian bacon, cut into
medium dice
2 ounces sliced shiitake mushrooms
1 1/2 bunches scallions, sliced thin
(white and green parts kept separate
you will need about 1/2 cup of the
whites and 1/3 cup of the greens)
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
1 cup blanched fresh or thawed frozen
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
Remove the core and chop the cauliflower roughly into 1 to 1 1/2-inch
pieces. In a food processor pulse the
cauliflower in 2-cup amounts until
chopped into rice-size pieces (you
should have about 4 cups)
In a large nonstick or stick-resistant
skillet over medium-high heat 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil.
In a small bowl, lightly beat the eggs
with a tablespoon of water, a pinch of
salt and some pepper and add the eggs to
the pan. Tilt the pan to spread the eggs

all around to make a flat pancake. Cook

until almost set, 30 to 45 seconds. Turn
over the egg (you can cut it in a few
pieces to make it easier, using the side
of a nonstick pan-safe spatula) and cook
for another 10 seconds. Transfer the
cooked eggs to a cutting board.
Add 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil,
the Canadian bacon and the shiitakes to
the pan and cook, stirring occasionally,
until the bacon is browned at the edges,
about 6 minutes. Transfer the bacon
mushroom mixture to a bowl with a slotted spoon. Reduce the heat to mediumlow, add 1/2 tablespoon of the remaining oil and the white part of the scallion
to the pan, and cook, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and
ginger, and cook, stirring, 1 minute.
Transfer the mixture to the bowl with
the bacon mixture and return the skillet
to the heat.
Add the remaining 2 tablespoons vegetable oil to the skillet, then add the cauliflower and a hefty pinch of salt, pressing it flat with the back of the spatula.
Cook until the rice is golden brown in
spots, turning it over with the spatula,
about 10 to 12 minutes.
While the rice is cooking slice the
egg into strips and add it along with the
peas to the bowl with the bacon.
When the rice is nicely crisped, add
the contents of the bacon bowl, the
peas, soy sauce and sesame oil to the
skillet and cook, stirring, until the
mixture is heated through. Transfer the
fried cauliflower rice to four bowls
and top each portion with some of the
sliced scallion greens and the pine

BRUSSELS The sheer waste of food had been bothering

teacher Marijke De Jongh for so long that two years ago she
set up a pop-up restaurant to serve perfectly good groceries
and meat that were approaching their expiry date.
With her Rekub team, she followed it up with an app that
brings thousands of consumers to retail shops were they
can buy food closing in on its sell-by date.
Still, the efforts of a small group of conscientious consumers are no match for the masses that still waste food
from farm to fork.
The European Court of Auditors on Tuesday chided the
European Unions executive branch in a report, Combating
Food Waste, that decried the blocs lack of effort in reducing
the food waste. It estimated the EU wastes 88 million tons of
food a year for a population of 510 million.
The Commission is not combating the food waste effectively, said ECA member Bettina Jakobsen, noting a lack
of strategy and inspiration being used to tackle the problem.

Cheesy beer dip with hot pretzels

By Katie Workman

It is easy enough to put out bag

after bag of chips during a Sunday
football-watching party, or any
other gathering for that matter.
And its not much harder to go the
extra step and put those chips into
an actual bowl ... you know, if
youre feeling classy.
But how about making a 15minute snack that will have the
crowds calling your name from the
stands (or, in all likelihood, from
the couch)?
A hot pretzel served up with a
creamy, cheesy dip is the kind of
food you would be thrilled to happen on and buy at a stadium. But
you can easily find these soft pretzels in the frozen aisle of your
supermarket, and they heat up
quickly in the oven. While you are
heating the oven and baking the
pretzels (which take less than 5
minutes!), you can stir together a
quick cheese-and-beer dip for

A hot pretzel served up with a creamy, cheesy dip is the kind of food you would be thrilled to happen on and
buy at a stadium. But you can easily find these soft pretzels in the frozen aisle of your supermarket, and they heat
up quickly in the oven.
2 (13-ounce) boxes of frozen
hot soft pretzels, 12 pretzels in all

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

3/4 cup milk, preferably whole

3/4 cup good beer

2 teaspoons brown mustard

Sriracha or other hot sauce to
4 ounces cream cheese, cut into
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar
Coarse or kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Prepare the pretzels according to
package directions.
Meanwhile, in a saucepan over
medium heat, melt the butter. Add
the flour and cook, whisking constantly, for 2 minutes. Slowly
whisk in the milk and beer, then
increase the heat to medium-high
and bring the mixture to a simmer.
Add the mustard and Sriracha and
cook, whisking occasionally,
until the mixture begins to thicken, 3 to 5 minutes.
Whisk in the cream cheese until
its melted, then add the cheddar
cheese in several batches, whisking until each batch has melted
before adding the next. Serve hot,
with hot pretzels.

State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, is an
admitted Tesla fan who was inspired to bolster autonomous vehicle testing by proposing a law that could remove about six
months of bureaucratic red tape. Hill
announced Wednesday Senate Bill 145 to
eliminate a 180-day waiting period for
those looking to put cars without a driver
on the road a prospect that isnt yet
legal but for which the Department of
Motor Vehicles is close to finalizing new
Even the federal government has
acknowledged reducing the ability for
human error could make computer-driven
cars safer and cut down on the nearly
35,000 deaths experienced on the nations
roads every year.
Its about keeping California well balanced between oversight, safety and innovation; and keeping California competitive when it comes to autonomous vehicles, Hill said.

Rapid advancements
Currently, companies can only test
autonomous vehicles when a human is
behind the wheel or monitoring the car.
However, the DMV is now finalizing landmark rules to regulate and permit the test-

Continued from page 1
For me, the public comments tonight
drive home the dilemma we face as a City
Council, Councilwoman Maureen Freschet
said in a live video of the meeting before
suggesting they hold off on a formal vote.
If approved, the modern looking in-fill
proposal stretching along El Camino Real
between 27th and 28th avenues is expected
to transform this part of San Mateo, possibly becoming a benchmark for the transit
corridor. It includes a 35 percent state density bonus, which had been scaled back since
the Planning Commission recommended
the project be approved just a few months
ago. The developer had sought a 51 percent
density bonus to construct 74 for-sale townhomes, but city attorneys eventually determined San Mateos voter-approved Measure
P precluded that type of density.
The exterior and mass of the building
remains the same despite the density being
reduced. Instead, larger units and more three
bedrooms would be included to make up for
the loss of six condominiums. Hillsdale
Terrace would also provide six below-market rate units for very low-income earners,
which the council noted would help its
efforts to address the regions housing crisis.
Deputy Mayor Rick Bonilla sought to
forge ahead Tuesday night, noting a variety
of long-formed planning documents looked
at El Camino Real as ideal for housing.
Cities are always planning for the future.
It is now the 21st century, we need to start
acting like we are going to provide what our
people need here in San Mateo. This is an
issue that I dont think we can put off,
Bonilla said.
The proposed transit-oriented development just south of the Hillsdale Shopping
Center seeks to tap into upcoming changes
such as a new Hillsdale Caltrain station
being relocated nearby. The area will also be
better connected to the massive Bay
Meadows development as well as grade sep-

ing of completely driverless cars.

But timing is of the essence in the technology gold rush era. And once the DMV
begins issuing permits for driverless vehicles, Hill said he hopes to eliminate an
arbitrary six-month waiting period that
could stifle companies looking to hit the
road as soon as possible.
Plus, the 180-day waiting period isnt
applied to the DMVs existing permit for
human-monitored testing and it doesnt
provide additional requirements to study an
already approved application, Hill said.
The current regulations hark back to
2012 when the Legislature sought to find a
balance between innovation and safety,
but was more skittish about an industry
still in the early stages. Now five years
later, Hill said its becoming clear the technology required to make autonomous vehicles is coming to fruition and timing is of
the essence in this highly-competitive
My guess is in the next year we will see
autonomous vehicles without steering
wheels, driving on our roads and I think
that puts us way ahead of anywhere else,
Hill said. I just want to make sure when
those applications come in for
autonomous permits, that theres nothing
to delay the technology from moving forward.
Hill stressed that his law provides for
adequate oversight as the DMV must still
perform its due diligence before issuing
permits, and the Legislature has a variety of

means to keep tabs on the industry. His bill

would also strike the requirement that the
Legislature be notified any time a company
applies for a permit, which isnt currently
required under the DMVs applicable law.
So far, about 20 companies have permits
to test self-driving cars in California under
the requisite of a humans presence a list
that highlights the vast industry interest
in the technology. Those with permits
include Tesla, Google, Delphi Automotive,
Bosch, Nissan, Mercedes-Benz, Ford,
Volkswagen, NextEv, Zoox and more,
according to the DMV.

arations are planned for 25th, 28th and 31st

avenues at the railroad tracks.
Hillsdale Terrace Project Manager Winnie
Lam noted the proposal helps address the
jobs-housing imbalance. She pointed to
statistics that indicate that since 2010, San
Mateo County added more than 54,000 jobs
but just 2,100 housing units.
It offers a solution to address the housing, traffic, displacement and environmental crisis were facing, Lam said. Our transit-oriented development across the street
from a relocated Caltrain station at 28th
Avenue fulfills a vision embodied in the
citys goals and policies.
The project also includes more than
13,000 square feet of ground-floor retail
space, a rooftop garden for residents, public
plazas on the corners, and 158 parking
spaces primarily located underground. The
developer would also offer $400,000 contribution the council can chose how to spend
part of the public amenity criteria for the
height increase from 40 feet to 55 feet.
Measure P prohibits buildings in the area
from being more than 55 feet at the plate
line, however, parts of the structure could
rise up to 71 feet, according to staff.
Residents in the neighborhood raised
concerns about density and height, as well
as the potential for it to exacerbate traffic
and parking issues. Many acknowledged the
housing crisis, but sought a scaled-back
I think we all agree that this project
needs development, this area needs growth,
we need housing. My concern personally is
the size and density of this project, said
Ryan Manero, who lives nearby on 27th
Avenue and suggested the project be no
more than four stories. Think about the
long-term corridor of El Camino, is your
vision to have five-story, 70-foot buildings
all along this corridor? Because this building will set a precedent.
Neighbor Louise Yarnell questioned
whether the transit-oriented concept of providing less parking as a means to getting
people out of their cars was practical.
Youre taking a leap of faith that puts the
neighborhood at risk for a failure of a social
experiment, Yarnell said while asking the

council consider smart growth.

In contrast, advocates promoting housing development as a way to help address
the regions affordability crisis praised
Hillsdale Terrace at its locale.

regulations as autonomous vehicles are
touted as having the potential to be safer
than human-controlled cars, can alleviate
congestion and provide mobility options
for those who cannot drive.
Federal transportation authorities have
also crafted a framework for self-driving
cars that range from drivers assist features


such as adaptive cruise control to fully

autonomous vehicles that dont even contain a steering wheel.
In September, the U.S. Department of
Transportation released the Federal
Automated Vehicles Policy that noted more
than 35,000 people died on the nations
roads in 2015 alone and 94 percent of
crashes can be attributed to a human choice
or error. Ultimately, the report recommended states enact regulations balancing oversight on how the developing technology
is rolled out, with support for innovation.
The DMV released its updated draft of its
autonomous vehicles deployment regulations in September and final rules are
expected to provide a clear path for driverless testing in the coming months.
Safety of the motoring public is our primary concern. To date, the DMV has issued
autonomous vehicle testing permits to 20
companies that cumulatively have 130

citing their desire to postpone a decision in
favor of weighing the community benefits
offered by an ice rink or badminton club.
I dont think this is an evening for decisions, said Vice Mayor Michael
Brownrigg, who indicated he favored the
ice rink and badminton center because the
proposed uses were more closely aligned
with the citys obligation to preserve the
recreation historically offered at the property.
Councilwoman Emily Beach agreed holding off a decision was the wiser decision, to
grant applicants the opportunity to craft a
fuller vision of their proposals.
I think we need more time to deliberate,
she said.
The call to postpone a decision was supported by many community members who
advocated for the council further considering the variety of proposals.

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
$16 million to $20 million, according to
the latest projection offered at the meeting.
The proposal includes an indoor facility
with two sheets of ice, locker rooms, a
training center, restaurant and more community services.
City Manager Lisa Goldman noted, however, that the nonprofit has not formally
submitted a proposal detailing its financing plans.
San Mateo Councilman Joe Goethals said
officials voted at their meeting to form a
subcommittee examining a proposal to
pass along the $8 million offered by SPI
Holdings in lieu of operating the
Bridgepointe facility to help finance the
Burlingame project.
County Supervisor Dave Pine, who represents Burlingame and is an ice rink advocate, said he is confident San Mateo officials will offer some funding and expressed
a willingness to track down some county
money as well.
San Mateo County needs a lot more ice
space. Its hard for any local jurisdiction to
do, but it has a regional impact, which I
think you need to consider, he said.
Ultimately, Pine encouraged the council
to postpone a decision in favor of spending
more time balancing the variety of compet-

grams when not occupied by students.

The community center will stay intact
and should not be greatly affected by
the school project.
Should officials soon strike a deal
formalizing an agreement for the district to move ahead with its expansion, Milliken said he believes staging work could begin shortly.
The expansion is proposed as part
of an effort by district officials to
accommodate enrollment which has
bulged significantly over recent
years, with more growth expected on
the horizon.
District elementary enrollment has
grown by more than 1,000 students
over the past decade, according to a
district report, and even the most conservative projections show incremental growth over the next few years.
Moderate projects anticipate about
200 more elementary schoolers will
come to the district by 2020.
In all, a moderate enrollment projection anticipates the districts total
enrollment will jump from 4,071 students in 2015 to 4,650 in 2020.
The district is experiencing the most
severe growth among all neighboring
San Mateo County school districts,

Councilwoman Donna Colson expressed
the harshest criticism of the economic viability of the ice rink, due to concerns over
the city inheriting the debt left should the

Mayor Ricardo Ortiz shared similar concerns regarding whether the ice rink advocates could come up with the money needed
to build the facility, noting the complexity
of the project likely making a bank loan
harder to attain.

it, he said.
As per the citys request for proposals to
applicants, officials are seeking any organization selected to operate at the site should
offer lease payments and perhaps a portion
of their annual revenue as well.
Topgolf has guaranteed to offer a lease
worth about $500,000 annually to the city,
said Goldman, which is the most specific
and lucrative deal offered by any of the
applicants. Alternatively, the ice rink foun-

of bonds in 2015 to finance the construction of 18 new classrooms split
between Redwood Shores Elementary
School, Ralston Middle and Nesbit
Elementary schools for the first phase
of the initiatives building phase.
As the Sandpiper Elementary School
project moves ahead, Milliken said he
is hopeful it will also help alleviate
some of the traffic congestion plaguing the area by building a middle
school in a neighborhood where families traditionally have had to drive
from to reach such classes.
The district has also offered to build
bathrooms at the nearby Sandpiper
Park as part of the project as well.
In all, Milliken said he believes the
project offers benefits to both the
school district and the wider Redwood
Shores community.
We are excited about it, he said.
We feel like it adds to the choices and
options that our families will have
