Comprehending homelessness
San Mateo County, national One Day Count this week helps officials gauge how to help
By Samantha Weigel

In a biennial effort to gauge the

extent of San Mateo Countys
homeless population by gathering data to inform future policy
decisions, hundreds of volunteers
will hit the streets early Thursday
morning for the national One Day
Homeless Count.
Starting 5 a.m., nearly 400 peo-

ple will disperse across the county

from coast to Bay to tally the number of people living on the
streets, in their vehicles or a shelter.
Officials are cautiously hopeful
the point-in-time data meaning rates likely fluctuate throughout the year will show another
decrease in the number of homeless. But with the regions wellknown housing crisis persisting,

Trump offers mixed response to protests

President tweets criticism and recognition of global rallies

WASHINGTON After a combative start to his presidency,

Donald Trump delivered a more

Trumps reassurance
Donald Trump
after a day
marked by global protests against
his presidency and his own complaints about media coverage of
his inauguration. He said his staff
was in the White House not to

ourselves to the national good.
Trump held up the letter left to
him by his predecessor, Barack
Obama a White House tradition.

A state lawmaker authored a pair

of bills aiming to streamline the
process for those interested in
becoming teachers under an effort
to address the shortage of educators plaguing the Peninsula as
well as the rest of California.
Patrick ODonnell, D-Long
Beach, proposed Assembly Bill
169 to establish a $20,000 grant
program for students enrolled in
teaching credential programs specializing in areas of high need. He
also crafted Assembly Bill 170 to
repeal a law prohibiting state college students from graduating in
four years with a teaching credential.

bills stand to resonate throughout

Even with positive report, city officials prep

Redwood Citys latest financial

San Bruno dealership expansion plan causes stir

Residents challenge car dealerships interest in redeveloping retail center
By Austin Walsh

The interest of a San Bruno car

dealership to redevelop into a
five-story tower riled residents
who feel such a project is inappropriate near the gateway to the
heart of the city.
Victory Honda of San Bruno
expressed a preliminary desire to
convert its current 20,000-squarefoot dealership at 345 El Camino
Real into a new 155,084-squarefoot facility, though no formal
redevelopment application has
been filed.
The proposal, which has been

She founded her argument on
allegations that a larger car dealership at the site is not aligned with

to rejuvenate San Brunos core

Representatives from Victory

Citing the absence of a formal

officials would not take a position
on the merits of the project.

Apple depicts Qualcomm as a shady monopolist in $1B lawsuit


SAN FRANCISCO Apple is suing

mobile chip maker Qualcomm for $1 billion
in a patent fight pitting the iPhone maker
against one of its major suppliers.
The 100-page complaint filed Friday in a
San Diego federal court depicts Qualcomm as a
greedy monopolist abusing its power in a key
segment of the mobile chip market to extort
royalties for iPhone innovations that have
nothing to do with Qualcomms technology.
For instance, Qualcomm demanded royal-

ties on Apples fingerprint identification

system built into recent models of the
iPhone and also for larger storage capacities
on the devices, according to the lawsuit.
Qualcomm denied the allegations.
We welcome the opportunity to have these
meritless claims heard in court where we will be
entitled to full discovery of Apples practices
and a robust examination of the merits, said
Don Rosenberg, Qualcomms general counsel.
Apple says it has been cooperating with
government regulators who have been
investigating Qualcomms business prac-

tices, prompting Qualcomm to retaliate by

withholding about $1 billion in scheduled
Qualcomms recent effort to cover its tracks
by punishing Apple for providing truthful
testimony at the request of government regulators underscores the lengths to which
Qualcomm will go to protect its extortion
scheme, the lawsuit alleges.
Apple launched its legal attack three days
after the Federal Trade Commission filed a lawsuit alleging Qualcomm has been imposing
unfair licensing terms on manufacturers.

South City police

seeking burglary suspect

Besides cooperating with the FTCs investigation, Apple says it has been providing information about its dealings with Qualcomm to
regulators in Europe, South Korea and Taiwan.
South Korea regulators last month
imposed an $853 million fine on
Qualcomm for violating its antitrust laws, a
decision that Qualcomm is fighting.
Shares in San Diego-based Qualcomm Inc.
fell $1.56, or 2.4 percent, to close Friday at
$62.88. Those of Apple Inc., which is based
in Cupertino, California, ended up 22 cents
at $120.

Local briefs

Police are searching for a man who

allegedly burglarized a home in South San
Francisco on Wednesday.
According to police, at about 11:17
a. m. a resident arrived at his home on
Highland Avenue after running errands.
Upon entering his home, the victim was
confronted by a male suspect who brandished a gun at him. The suspect ordered
the victim onto the floor, and then fled
the home, taking with him jewelry and
cash, police said.
Investigators later determined that the
suspect broke a window in order to enter
the home.
According to police, the suspect was
described as a man in his mid-20s, wearing a dark gray beanie and dark gray
clothes. The suspect was also covering
his face with a cloth, police said.
Anyone with information about this
incident is encouraged to contact the
South San Francisco Police Department at

Firefighters responded 10:37 a. m. ,
Saturday, Jan. 21, to a water rescue at the

beach near the 100 block of Esplanade

A man who had been paragliding was
pulled from the ocean to shore by
bystanders who began giving him CPR,
fire officials said.
Fire crews and paramedics took over to
try to save the man's life but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
No other information was immediately

Gas prices drop

over past two weeks
CAMARILLO The average price of a
gallon of regular-grade gasoline fell just
over 1 cent nationally during the past two
weeks, to $2.36.
Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said
Sunday that the drop mostly results from a
dip in crude oil costs. Lundberg says the
current price is 46 cents a gallon above
what it was a year ago.
Gas in San Diego was the highest in the
continental United States at an average of
$2.82 a gallon Friday. The lowest average
was in Tulsa, Oklahoma, at $2.05 a gallon.
The U.S. average diesel price is $2.57,
up a penny from two weeks ago.

California storm causes flooding, evacuations


LOS ANGELES Fast-moving floodwaters swept through California mountain

communities and residents fled homes
below hillsides scarred by wildfires as the
third and largest in the latest series
of storms brought a deluge Sunday and
warnings about damaging mudslides.
The National Weather Service cautioned
that the system was expected to gain
strength into the evening and could be the
strongest storm in at least seven years.
California has been swamped during a wet
winter that has brought plenty of rain and
snow after years of drought.
Residents in rural Santa Cruz County
watched helplessly Sunday as the San
Lorenzo River spilled over its banks for
the second time this month, sending
muddy water and debris into yards and
homes. No injuries were reported.
This is the fastest Ive ever seen this
river move. Its already flowing under my
house. I have maybe 2 feet of clearance

Battalion Chief Aldo Gonzales with the
Department of Forestry and Fire Protection
said the river is the highest he has ever seen it.
Rock slides, debris ows and ooding
closed roads and snarled trafc up and down
the state as the third storm in four days dumped
heavy rain and snow in the mountains.
Flash flood watches and warnings were

in effect for swaths of greater Los Angeles,

where mountain locations could see up to 6
inches of rain. Rain fell at a rate of nearly
three-quarters of an inch per hour.
Traffic was diverted off Interstate 110
south of downtown Los Angeles because of
water flowing across lanes.
Authorities ordered evacuations near
wildfire burn areas in Santa Barbara, Los
Angeles and Orange counties. Potential
debris flows could restrict access for emergency responders, officials said.
Some residents refused to leave, but
Ralph Olivas loaded up his family and their
dog and left his home in Duarte, nestled in
scenic foothills east of Los Angeles that
were left bare by wildfires last June. Recent
rain sent rocks down steep streets where
homeowners built protective barriers out
of lumber and sandbags.
Were packing and leaving because the
muds are coming, the mudslides, he told
Los Angeles news station KCAL-TV,
adding that the risk comes with the territory living up here.
In northern Los Angeles County, about
120 residents near burn areas of Santa
Clarita were ordered to leave late Saturday.
During Fridays storm, raging floodwaters
overflowed a creek and sent a sheriffs
cruiser floating down a street.
Residents who ignore orders to leave can
put rst-responders at risk later if rescues
are needed, said Mike Eliason with the re
department in Santa Barbara County, where
canyon areas wiped clean by wildres were

Farther north, strong thunderstorms
packing heavy rain and possible hail were
expected to hit the San Francisco Bay Area.
Wine country communities that already
experienced destructive ooding this
month faced new ood warnings.
Wind gusts topping 50 mph brought
down trees across Northern California.
In Mendocino County, a massive oak
toppled onto an apartment in the city of
Ukiah early Saturday, crushing the building and killing a woman as she lay in her

bed, fire officials told the Press Democrat

newspaper of Santa Rosa. The womans
boyfriend and a 3-year-old boy escaped.
Capt. Pete Bushby of the Ukiah Valley
Fire Authority said heavy rain apparently
had destabilized the 125-foot tree.
Ofcials warned of a high avalanche danger at all elevations of the Sierra Nevada
mountains because of heavy snowfall that
has closed several ski resorts. The Sierra
Avalanche Center advised Sunday against
travel in the area, warning of intense snowfall rates and gale force winds.

IPAs and other beers after detecting a packaging aw that could cause a piece of glass
to break off into the bottle.
In a statement Sunday, it said the recall
applies to eight different types of its craft
beers, including its popular Sierra Nevada
Pale Ale, purchased in 36 states across the
Midwest, the South and East Coast of the
United States.
The California-based company issued the
voluntary recall after quality inspections at
its Mills River, North Carolina, brewery
detected a limited number of bottles made
with a aw that may cause a small piece of
glass to break off and possibly fall into the
bottle, creating a risk of injury, the statement said.
The affected beer has a package date that

falls between Dec. 5, 2016, and Jan. 13,

Defiant women to Trump: Your agenda wont go unchallenged

By Nancy Benac
and Ben Nuckols

WASHINGTON In a global exclamation of defiance and solidarity, more than 1

million people rallied at womens marches
in the nations capital and cities around the
world Saturday to send President Donald
Trump an emphatic message on his first
full day in office that they wont let his
agenda go unchallenged.
Welcome to your first day, we will not
go away! marchers in Washington chanted.
Many of the women came wearing pink,
pointy-eared pussyhats to mock the new
president. Plenty of men joined in, too,
contributing to surprising numbers everywhere from New York, Philadelphia,
Chicago and Los Angeles to Mexico City,
Paris, Berlin, London, Prague and Sydney.
The Washington rally alone attracted over
500,000 people according to city ofcials
apparently more than Trumps inauguration drew on Friday. It was easily one of the
biggest demonstrations in the citys history, and as night fell, not a single arrest was
The international outpouring served to
underscore the degree to which Trump has
unsettled people in both hemispheres.
We march today for the moral core of this
nation, against which our new president is
waging a war, actress America Ferrera told
the Washington crowd. Our dignity, our
character, our rights have all been under
attack, and a platform of hate and division
assumed power yesterday. But the president
is not America. ... We are America, and we

are here to stay.

Turnout in the capital was so heavy that
the designated march route alongside the
National Mall was impassable. Protesters
were told to make their way to the Ellipse
near the White House by way of other
streets, triggering a chaotic scene that
snarled downtown Washington. Long after
the program had ended, groups of demonstrators were still marching and chanting in
different parts of the city.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer
had no comment on the march except to note
that there were no rm numbers for turnout
because the National Park Service no longer
provides crowd estimates.
Around the world, women brandished
signs with slogans such as Women wont
back down and Less fear more love. They
decried Trumps stand on such issues as abortion, health care, diversity and climate
change. And they branded him a sexist, a
bully, a bigot and more.
We want a leader, not a creepy tweeter,
some marchers chanted in Washington.
In Chicago, organizers canceled the march
portion of their event for safety reasons
because of an overow crowd that reached an
estimated 250,000. People made their way
through the streets on their own anyway. In
New York, well over 100,000 marched past
Trumps home at glittering Trump Tower on
Fifth Avenue. More than 100,000 also gathered on Boston Common, and a similar number demonstrated in Los Angeles.
In Miami, real estate agent Regina
Vasquez, 51, brought a sign saying Repeal
and Replace Trump.
I believe that strength is in the numbers,
and that we should all come out and not make


Protesters shout slogans as they take part in the Women's March outside the U.S. embassy
in Mexico.
Trump the new normal, she said.
All told, more than 600 sister marches
were planned worldwide. Crowd estimates
from police and organizers around the globe
added up to well over a million.
I feel very optimistic even though its a
miserable moment, said Madeline
Schwartzman of New York City, who

brought her twin 13-year-old daughters to

the Washington rally. I feel power.
Retired teacher Linda Lastella, 69, who
came to Washington from Metuchen, New
Jersey, said she had never marched before
but felt the need to speak out when many
nations are experiencing this same kind of
pullback and hateful, hateful attitudes.

Presidents hotel a center of activity and ethical dilemmas

By Julie Bykowicz

WASHINGTON Red, white and blue balloons rained down over crystal chandeliers
in the soaring atrium of the Trump
International Hotel at midnight Friday a
new inaugural tradition, its social media
account promised.
But while President Donald Trumps hotel
in Washington did serve as a hub of inaugural
activities, it also stands as ground zero for

what top Democrats and some ethics advisers

see as his unique web of conflicts of interest.
Trumps lease with the federal government to develop and operate a hotel inside
the historic Old Post Office building
expressly prohibits any elected official
from benefiting from the property, yet
Trump has not divested from his company
or this particular project.
The governments General Services
Administration previously said it would
refrain from commenting on the apparent

contract violation until Trump took office,

which he did at noon Friday. The agency did
not respond to requests for comment.
I think its a simple matter of amending
the lease, said Patrick Keogh, a real estate
investor in Austin, Texas, who has developed projects for the GSA and other federal
agencies. He said Ivanka Trump, the presidents daughter and chief negotiator on the
hotel, should ask the GSA to exempt her
father from that provision of the contract.
The GSA should make the process public
and transparent, Keogh said.
Others say Trump must relinquish ownership of the hotel. More broadly, they
argue, Trump should sell off his company
and put the cash into a blind trust as previous presidents have done. He is not legally
required to do so, but its become common
for presidents to separate themselves from
their personal finances to avoid any possible conflicts with national policy.

The liberal-funded watchdog group

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in
Washington complained to the GSA that it
should terminate its deal or take legal action
because the president had violated the conditions of the lease. The American Civil
Liberties Union said it had filed a Freedom
of Information Act request for documents
about Trumps conflicts of interest, including any recent memos, emails and other private communications on the issue with his
transition team.
The Washington hotel also attracted protesters on Friday and Saturday. People participating in the womens march Saturday
booed in unison as they walked by, and
many left their protest signs in front of the

More tornadoes ahead as death toll reaches 15 in Southeast

By Brendan Farrington

ADEL, Georgia Deadly weather in the

Southeast killed 15 people and injured
dozens more, authorities said Sunday, as
residents along the Georgia-Florida line
braced for more intense, fast-moving
storms including unusually strong long
track twisters.
On Sunday, a tornado blew through a
mobile home park in rural Cook County in
southern Georgia sheering off siding,
upending homes and killing seven people,
ofcials said.
Coroner Tim Purvis said an apparent tornado leveled the park before dawn Sunday
and that emergency responders searched for
survivors for hours after the twister struck.
Purvis said the park had about 40 mobile
homes, and roughly half were destroyed.
The area was cordoned off by police.
Photographs from Cook County posted
by WSB-TV (http://2wsb. tv/2jPv8Ec)
showed a large area strewn with twisted
metal and broken wooden beams, with some
mobile homes damaged but still standing.
Jalen Bennett, who lives about a mile
from the mobile home park, said he was
sleeping when a severe weather alarm
sounded on his cellphone at about 4 a.m.
I woke up and I looked outside it was
just a lot of thundering and lightning, and it
was real dark, Bennett said. I had to move
downstairs to nd shelter.
Bennett, 19, said his home wasnt damaged. He and other family members were
staying put inside as more stormy weather
pushed into Cook County.
Several homes appeared to be destroyed
along on a road within about 2 miles of the
mobile home park, with cinderblocks scattered on the ground and pine trees uprooted
and snapped in half. The tops of broken
utility poles lay alongside the road.
The South Georgia Motorsports Park in
Cecil was heavy damaged; a grandstand was

ripped apart. Barrels, signs, insulation and
garbage were strewn over the speedway and
parking lot.
Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal declared a state
of emergency in seven southern Georgia
counties, freeing up state resources to assist
with recovery efforts.
Our thoughts and prayers are with
Georgians suffering from the storms
impact, Deal said in a statement.
In addition to seven deaths in Cook
County, four people were killed in adjoining counties Sunday. Another four people
were killed in Mississippi by a tornado on
Saturday, bringing the weekend death toll to
The National Weather Service said Sunday
that southern Georgia, northern Florida and
the corner of southeastern Alabama could

face forceful tornadoes, damaging winds and

large hail. Long track tornadoes, which
plow on for miles, were also a real risk.
The weather services Storm Prediction
Center warned on its website of a dangerous outbreak of tornadoes on Sunday afternoon and pressed for residents to prepare.
Long track tornadoes, somewhat rare and
capable of staying on the ground for 20 or
more miles, were possible.
There are 4.8 million people under the
high risk area; the total area of bad weather
in the Southeast, who fall under the slight
risk category or worse, is about 38 million
Two of Sundays deaths occurred when a
mobile home was struck by an apparent tornado in Brooks County, which moved the
home roughly 100 yards.

A tornado hit a mobile home, picked it

up and put it in the middle of Highway 122,
Brooks County Coroner Michael Miller
said. I dont know if it rolled or was lifted,
but it blocked the entire highway.
He said the storm struck in the middle of
the night, at about 4 a.m. Sunday, and both
people inside the home were pronounced
dead at the scene.
Catherine Howden of the Georgia
Emergency Management Agency said earlier
Sunday that the deaths occurred in Cook,
Brooks and Berrien counties in southern
Georgia near the Georgia-Florida line. She
said another 23 people were injured.
The sheriffs ofce and coroner in Berrien
County could not immediately be reached
for comment Sunday. Calls to their phones
were met with busy signals for several
The southeastern United States has been
pounded by storms, high winds and unstable
weather over the weekend, with an overall
death toll of 15. Four people died after a tornado with winds above 136 mph tore a 25mile path across southern Mississippi
before dawn Saturday.
While the central part of the U.S. has a
fairly dened tornado season the spring
the risk of tornadoes never really goes
to zero for most of the year in the southeast, said Patrick Marsh, the warning coordination meteorologist at the Storm
Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma.
The last time that the prediction center
issued a high-risk weather outlook where
forecasters are very condent of a tornado
outbreak was in 2014. Sunday marked
only the third time since 2000 that any part
of Florida had been at a high-risk for severe
weather, Marsh said.
This is a pretty rare event in this location, Marsh said Sunday. Any time the
SPC issues a high-risk, for me, its sobering. Were coming to work and theres a
strong likelihood that peoples lives will
forever be changed. Its very sobering.

Some question call for tougher

penalties in police attack cases
By Summer Ballentine


Greitens is pushing to toughen Missouris
already stiff penalties for attacking a police
ofcer, reecting similar efforts underway
in other states and pleasing many in

which has been on the defensive since the
police killing of an unarmed black 18-yearold in Ferguson more than two years ago.
Whether such changes are needed is debatable among those who think they arent

expert who helped craft revisions of the
states criminal code that just took effect.

and were really solving the problem, said
state Sen. Bob Dixon, a leader on criminal
law and chair of the chambers committee on
criminal laws. This does not solve that

even though Missouri already has harsher
penalties for people who hurt cops or rst
He also spoke about a Ferguson effect,
which allegedly has made ofcers more hesitant about performing their duties since the
2014 killing of Michael Brown due to a fear
of being questioned later on. Browns
killing by a white Ferguson ofcer sparked
months of protests and led to a Department
of Justice investigation of the department.
The ofcer wasnt charged.
Lawmakers in more than a dozen other
states and Congress have proposed making
it a hate crime to assault an ofcer.
Louisiana became the rst state to enact
such legislation in May, allowing prosecutors to seek stronger penalties when police,

reghters and emergency medical crews are

intentionally targeted because of their professions.
Almost every state, including Missouri,
already has tougher penalties for assaults or
other offenses against police, according to
the National Conference of State
A Missouri conviction for second-degree
assault, in which someone is seriously
injured or a lethal weapon is used, currently
carries a sentence of one day to seven years

years. Legislation proposed by GOP state
Sen. Doug Libla would double it to 10 to 30
years or life behind bars.
Police deaths on the job have generally
declined over the past four decades, from a
recent high of 280 in 1974 to a low of 109
in 2013, according to the National Law
Enforcement Ofcers Memorial Fund, which
tracks ofcer deaths dating to the 18th century. But ofcer deaths have steadily risen
since then, up to 136 in 2016. Those gures
include attacks on police as well as accidental deaths such as car crashes.
Those pushing for stiffer penalties say
they could serve as a deterrent. They point
to an attack in Dallas last July in which a
military veteran killed ve ofcers at a
protest, in what was the deadliest day for
American law enforcement since Sept. 11,
2001. Ten days later, a former Marine killed
three Baton Rouge, Louisiana, police ofcers.
Dixon, the Republican state senator, is
skeptical about this argument. He said criminals who repeatedly break the law might
take note of stricter punishments and be
deterred by them, but that it probably
wouldnt apply to cases of shootings of

many times have you
heard those around
you talking about
their New Years
resolutions and how
they plan to make a
fresh start? How many times have you
made New Years resolutions? Have you
promised yourself to be strong enough to
keep those resolutions? Have you ever told
yourself that youll have a great year by just
following through with your New Years
promise? Were these promises hard to keep
or easy to ignore? Have you ever broken a
promise to yourself? New Years Eve is a
time when promises are made in the
excitement of the moment, but sometimes
are forgotten or cast aside when laziness
takes over. Keeping a promise to yourself
should be considered no different than
keeping a promise to someone else, and
followed through with accordingly.
It takes a sense of responsibility to be
committed to a promise, and also a slight
sense of potential embarrassment. By not
following through with your commitments
you have a good possibility of being judged
poorly by those who are relying on you, in
turn causing embarrassment for yourself.
Nobody wants to be told they should be
ashamed of themselves. It is much easier to
follow through with your commitments.
Avoiding being shamed all together can lead
to a positive outcome for everyone involved.
It is a little more complicated, though,
when you are the one that youre making a
promise to. Since making a commitment to
yourself is done privately within in your

mind you have the easy option to just say

forget it without anyone knowing. It can
be a psychological struggle and a matter of
strong will-power to keep yourself
committed to your resolution.
temptation to just give up can be too hard
for many to resist. Picture the old cartoon
with that poor schmuck being pulled in two
directions by his conscience, an angel on
one shoulder and a devil on the other, giving
him conflicting orders. This is a very real
dilemma for someone who is having trouble
between doing the right thing for themselves
or falling back into old engrained bad habits.
Trying to better yourself can be hard. It
is much easier when you want to make a
commitment than when you have to make
a commitment. Still, the key idea is to make
yourself better. Since you are in charge of
your own situation, though, you can make
the rules. Take baby steps and lead up to
your self commitments gradually. Starting
small may work better than a big grandiose
commitment that may not be realistic.
Perhaps you can keep your resolution every
Monday, and then work your way up to a
second day and so on. Everyone handles
their commitments differently and you will
have to adjust your rules to what works best
for your type of resolution.
Responsibility is an important quality
that should not be taken lightly. A promise
to yourself can be a struggle, but if pulled
off with will-power a resolution can be a
liberating and freeing experience.

Israeli leader accepts invitation from Trump to visit U.S.

By Josef Federman

JERUSALEM Israels prime minister

on Sunday accepted an invitation to visit
the White House next month in hopes of
forging a common vision for the region
with President Donald Trump that could
include expanded settlement construction
on occupied territories and a tougher policy
toward Iran.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
announced his plans to head to Washington
in early February hours after delaying a vote
on an explosive proposal to annex one of
the West Banks largest settlements, apparently to coordinate his policy toward the
Palestinians with the new administration.
The move put on hold legislation that
threatens to unleash fresh violence and
damage already faded hopes for Palestinian
independence. It also may have marked
Trumps rst presidential foray into Middle
East diplomacy.
After eight years of frosty relations with
President Barack Obama, Netanyahu has
welcomed Trumps election as an opportunity to strengthen ties between the two allies.
Israeli media reported that Netanyahu was
gearing up plans to expand settlement construction in the occupied West Bank and east
Jerusalem a policy that had been condemned by Obama.
Late Sunday, the two men held what
Netanyahus ofce described as a very
warm conversation by phone. It said they

discussed the international nuclear deal with

Iran, which both men have harshly criticized, and the Palestinian issue.
The prime minister expressed his desire
to work closely with President Trump to
forge a common vision to advance peace
and security in the region, with no daylight
between the United States and Israel, the
statement said. It said a date for Netanyahus
visit would be nalized in the coming days.
The White House said Trump told
Netanyahu that peace with the Palestinians
can only be negotiated directly between
the two parties and that the U.S. will work
closely with Israel on that goal.
Trump also afrmed his unprecedented
commitment to Israels security and his
administrations focus on countering terrorism, the White House added.
With Trump signaling a more tolerant
approach toward the much-maligned settlement movement, Israels nationalist right
now believes it has an ally in the White
House, and Israeli hard-line leaders make no
secret they will push for aggressive action
in the occupied West Bank.
Education Minister Naftali Bennett,
leader of the pro-settlement Jewish Home
Party, has been pushing Netanyahu to abandon the internationally backed idea of a
Palestinian state and to annex the Maaleh
Adumim settlement near Jerusalem.
But after convening his Security Cabinet
on Sunday, Netanyahu said his Cabinet ministers, including Bennett, had decided
unanimously to delay action on the

annexation plan until he goes to

Washington to meet with Trump.
In order to placate Bennett, Israeli media
reports said Netanyahu had promised the
ministers to clear the way for expanded settlement construction in east Jerusalem and
in major West Bank settlement blocs that
Israel hopes to keep under a future peace
deal. He was quoted as saying his vision
is to place all settlements under Israeli sovereignty.
In Washington, Trump described their
phone call as very nice.
Netanyahu, a longtime supporter of the
settlements, has nonetheless been cautious
about expanding them in the face of strong
opposition from the international community. In a nal showdown with Israel last
month, the Obama administration allowed
the U.N. Security Council to pass a resolution condemning settlements as illegal.
But Bennett and other hard-liners believe
there is no longer any reason for restraint.
For the rst time in 50 years, the prime
minister can decide: either sovereignty or
Palestine, Bennett wrote on Twitter.
Annexing Maaleh Adumim, a sprawling
settlement of nearly 40,000 people east of
Jerusalem, could cause a major clash with
the Palestinians and the rest of the international community.
The Palestinians seek all of the West
Bank and east Jerusalem areas captured
by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war for a
future state. The Palestinians and the international community consider all settle-

ments illegal, and unilaterally making
Maaleh Adumim part of Israel would deal a
powerful blow to hopes for a two-state solution.
To the Palestinians, it would be seen as
undermining negotiations. Maaleh Adumim
is also strategically located in the middle of
the West Bank, potentially hindering the
establishment of their state.

return home. He remained in neighboring
Senegal, where he took the oath of ofce
Thursday because of concerns for his safety.
At a press conference in the Senegalese
capital, Barrows special adviser Mai
Ahmad Fatty told journalists that the president will return home as soon as possible.
Underscoring the challenges facing the
new administration, Fatty conrmed that
Jammeh made off with more than $11.4 million during a two-week period alone. That is
only what they have discovered so far since
Jammeh and his family took an offer of
exile after more than 22 years in power and
departed late Saturday.

The Gambia is in nancial distress. The

coffers are virtually empty. That is a state of
fact, Fatty said. It has been conrmed by
technicians in the ministry of nance and
the Central Bank of the Gambia.
Fatty also conrmed that a Chadian cargo
plane had transported luxury goods out of
the country on Jammehs behalf in his nal
hours in power, including an unknown number of vehicles.
Fatty said ofcials at the Gambia airport
have been ordered not to allow any of

Sacramento, heal thyself ...

By Ray Fowler
Some Democrats continue to assign
blame for their 2016 election defeat
everywhere except where the blame
truly resides. To put it succinctly,
Democrats can blame no one but
themselves. Its not the Electoral
College, the Russians, the FBI, angry
white men, Fox News or any other
excuse du jour. Democrats simply promoted the wrong message.
Now, it appears some Democrats
want to set aside the Electoral College
in favor of a nationwide popular vote.
Im sure the popular vote will be their
preference until Electoral College
results prove more beneficial.
Democrat complaints regarding the
Electoral College often focus on
Wyoming ... but its not about
Wyoming. Its about California. The
three U.S. political entities with the
smallest populations (District of
Columbia, Vermont and Wyoming)
each receive three Electoral College
votes. However, you wont hear
Democrats complaining about D.C.
and Vermont. Why? They are both
firmly ensconced in the Democratic
Party column.
Would Electoral College reforms
have prevented Democrats from losing more than 1,000 legislative seats
at the state and national level during
the outgoing presidents tenure? No.
On Nov. 8, Republicans captured
the popular vote in seven of the 10
most populous states. In the end,
Republicans carried 30 out of 50
states. However, Democrats still
bemoan the fact they tallied 3 million
more popular votes. Guess where you
will find Democrats leading by more
than three million popular votes?

California. Like I
said, this is not
about Wyoming,
its about
Its not enough
for some California
Democrats that
their states 55
Electoral College
vote complement goes entirely to
their candidate (even though 37 percent of California voters did not support the Democratic Party). If
Democrats could abolish the Electoral
College, California could possibly
become the only battleground state.
The Democrats opponent could win
the popular vote in 49 states plus
D.C. but lose California and lose the
election. Thats why we need an electoral system that values the votes of
all Americans.
California needs relevance, but it
will not find it unless the Golden
State starts to promote a meaningful
message more Californians can support. Yes, there are currently more
Democrats in California (45 percent)
than any other political party.
However, even if that advantage
increases, Democrats are at risk of
losing key elections because the
Democrats plurality is more fragile
than they realize. Since 1959, heres
what the governors carousel in
Sacramento looks like: P. Brown
(D)... Reagan (R)... J. Brown (D)...
Deukmejian (R)... Wilson (R)... Davis
(D)... Schwarzenegger (R)... J. Brown
(D). Even with a greater number of
registered voters, California
Democrats are not always able to grab
the brass ring.

We dont need water tunnels, a bullet
train, bloated union payrolls, bigger
government and higher taxes. We need
to reach out to the 1 million
Californians who are unemployed and
the 4 million Californians currently
receiving food stamps. Do divisive
partisan politics in Sacramento make
solving such problems too difficult?
No. Democrats dominate the
Legislature (67 percent in the State
Senate and 69 percent in the
Assembly). So, who is standing in the
way of meaningful reform and solutions? Republican legislators? No.
Even though California has the
sixth largest economy in the world,
our current governor (D) is projecting
a $2 billion dollar deficit in the
states next budget. How does he
explain the shortfall? Hes blaming a
reduction in revenue on the presidentelect (R) even before the new president is inaugurated. However, if its
not the president-elect maybe its
the Electoral College, the Russians,
the FBI, angry white men, or Fox
News. Here we go, again.

Thank you to Donald Trump

With the much-dreaded inauguration of
what was once the class clown of American society, Id like to sincerely thank
the man for what his victorious campaign provided the American people
proof that the Democratic National
Committee needs a serious reality
check after it attempted to defeat Trump
with a weak candidate like Hillary Clinton instead of the crowd-rallying,
vote-getting-out, wheeling-and-dealing son-of-a-gun Bernie Sanders.
It is further proof our current electoral
system is outdated and broken

George W. Bush also lost the popular

vote in 2000 despite winning the electoral vote, and we all know how well
that turned out and above all else, proof
that the GOP is so petty, stubborn and
unwilling to face reality or make
strides toward bettering themselves
that they would throw themselves behind Donald J. Trump for the sole
reason he isnt a Democrat.
Trumps inauguration is concrete proof
that there are multiple problems with
this country both socially and politically, ones that I doubt his platform
will resolve in 100 days or even eight
years. Its a wake-up call to our faults as
a country, delivered as a brick through a
window. He is not the president we
want or need right now but, after all the
mistakes weve made, he is the one we
deserve. So thank you, Donald Trump.

Council hopefuls
are getting ready

or some reason, the San Mateo Planning

Commission is a hot bed of aspiring council candidates but no one has announced yet. Thats because
all three incumbents are up for re-election in November.
And it is much easier to run when there is a vacancy.
The incumbents are Councilman Joe Goethals, Deputy
Mayor Rick Bonilla and Mayor David Lim. There has
been speculation that Lim might not run again. Last year
he ran for an open judgeship in Alameda County where he
works in the District Attorneys Office. But he didnt have
as many fans in Alameda as he does in San Mateo so that
didnt work out. There are rumors that Lim wants to spend
more time with his family, twin girls and a son, and perhaps concentrate on his
career in preparation for
sending three kids to college.
Lim has been a proactive
member of the council, the
one you usually see moving the agenda one way or
another. Since he has been
in public office, he has
been the go-to guy if you
wanted something done. He
may have lost some support among his colleagues
and SAMCAR when he
came out in favor of the
recent rent control measure
which failed. Bonilla was also in favor of rent control but
he did not come out as publicly as Lim. Still, if Lim ran,
my guess is that he would be easily re-elected.
Three planning commissioners talked about as possible
council candidates are all in their first term on the commission. Charlie Drechsler previously served two terms
on the Public Works Commission and started his public
involvement on the Community Improvement
Commission. He is now at the end of his first term on the
Planning Commission. He has lived in North Shoreview
for 21 years. For 15 years, he has worked for the city of
Redwood City as an engineer, in the Community
Development Department and currently as the city
arborist. He is a graduate of Burlingame High School,
College of San Mateo and the paramedic program at
UCSF. Now that his daughter is off to college, hes ready
to throw his hat in the ring, that is, if Lim doesnt run.
Will he have Lims endorsement? Drechsler wouldnt say
but my guess is he would.
Eric Rodriguez is another likely candidate. His background sort of resembles our former president. His father
immigrated from Mexico at the age of 9 and his mother
grew up on a farm in rural Kansas. Rodriguez graduated
from Carlmont High School in Belmont, from the
University of California at Berkeley with a degree in business and finance and from Stanfords Graduate School of
Business. He was a tech executive for several large Silicon
Valley firms but, eight years ago, he created an educational
media company, HowToMedia, Inc. (in the San Mateo
Main Library) which is now located in downtown.
Rodriguez moved to San Mateo in 1999 and has lived in
four different San Mateo neighborhoods: North Central,
Central, Downtown/Hayward Park and Aragon. He is
Aragons representative to San Mateo United
Homeowners. He, his wife and young son live in the
Aragon neighborhood. He completed both the chambers
Leadership Program and the citys Service Academy.
A third member of the Planning Commission has also
been mentioned as a possible council candidate. Pamela
OLeary, who with Rodriguez was recently appointed to
the commission, may wait a while since her two colleagues will be hard to beat, even for incumbents.
The other two councilmembers, Maureen Freschet and
Diane Papan, will have their terms extended a year until 2020
if voters approve a charter amendment. Thats because most
local elections are being switched to even-numbered years.
Whats with Herb Perez, Foster City councilman? His
constituents want the San Mateo-Foster City Elementary
School District to build a new school in Foster City but
he keeps raising obstacles. First he said Charter Square
would never agree to sell their land for a school while the
district and the shopping center were in negotiations.
Then when an agreement was reached he said great. But
now he plans, as an individual, to sue the district to stop
the new school from taking place because he didnt like
the bid process? There must be another reason for this
highly unusual lawsuit. Your guess is as good as mine.
And remember, lawsuits cost taxpayers money.

Trump creates uncertainty for green energy

By Cathy Bussewitz
and Geoff Mulvihill

HONOLULU President Donald Trump has disputed climate change, pledged a revival of coal and disparaged wind
power, and his nominee to head the Energy Department was
once highly skeptical of the agencys value. What this
means for states efforts to promote renewable energy is an
open question.
States that are pushing for greater reliance on wind and
solar power are not quite sure what to expect as Trump takes
over. Many of them depend heavily on federal renewableenergy tax credits, grants and research, much of which
comes from the Energy Department.
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Trumps pick to lead the
department, presents a contradictory figure: A Texas oil promoter, he also oversaw a huge expansion of wind-energy
production while governor. When he ran for president in
2011, he included Energy on a list of departments he
thought should be abolished, though he disavowed the idea
Thursday at his Senate confirmation hearing.
We dont know what version of Perry is going to show
up, said Michael Webber, deputy director of the Energy
Institute at the University of Texas, Austin.
Renewable energy accounts for about 15 percent of the
electricity generated in the United States. And 29 states
have set targets for boosting their reliance on such power.
Officials, experts and advocates in more than a half-dozen
states with some of the most ambitious goals told The
Associated Press that they are on course to meet their targets. Most said that while Trump policies could slow the
expansion, they wont stop it.
The price of harnessing the power of the sun and wind has
dropped so much that in many areas of the country, experts
say it could be competitive with traditional power sources
such as coal and natural gas even without federal subsidies.
Further, they do not expect a fast repeal of the key federal
tax credits that have propelled the industry for years.
Still, policies aimed at bringing more renewable power
online quickly are not expected while Trump is in office.

We need to be moving faster, not slower, said Jeff

Forward, president of the trade group Renewable Energy
Vermont. I fear were tapping on the brakes right now.
Those who promote renewable energy are concerned
because Trump has expressed doubts about whether climate
change is real, even though scientists agree that it is happening and that the burning of fossil fuels is a major reason
for it.
Trump also has called for reviving the coal industry,
which has struggled in part because of the rise of renewable
energy. And he has criticized wind turbines near Palm
Springs, California, both for killing birds and for looking
like a junkyard.
Perry, at his confirmation hearings, said he believes climate change is happening and that some of it is caused by
human activity. He also said he favors an all of the above
energy policy, the way he did in Texas, and wants the federal government to continue research on renewable energy.
He didnt say what he thought of green-energy tax credits
and other incentives.
The federal wind credit is set to be phased out in 2019, and
the solar one, four years after that. Those incentives and
other federal spending on renewable energy in fiscal year
2015 totaled about $10 billion, nearly twice as much as
similar subsidies for fossil fuels.
In Hawaii, federal tax credits reduced the price for developers and homeowners by about $125 million annually
from 2011 to 2014, according to an analysis by Blue Planet
Foundation. During that time, the portion of the states
electricity coming from renewables nearly doubled from 12
to 21 percent.
Randy Iwase, chairman of the Hawaii Public Utilities
Commission, said incentives are important to the states

renewable sources by 2045, the nations most aggressive
We are in a toddler stage, he said. When you lose focus,
when attention is distracted, when you make it less of a priority, the toddler kind of wobbles.
The Energy Department said in a report last year that the
cost of getting power from wind fell more than 40 percent


The appointment of former Texas governor Rick Perry as head

to the Energy Department raised questions for renewable
energy companies.
from 2008 to 2015, and solar panel prices dropped more
than 60 percent in that period.
Market forces have made green power big in Republicanled states, with wind turbines springing up along the Great
Plains from Iowa to Texas. In those places many of
which have low or no green-energy requirements the
arguments for renewable power are more often cost savings
and job creation, rather than the environmental benefits.
In December, Republican Gov. John Kasich of Ohio
vetoed a bill that would have delayed the requirements there.
This month, Phil Scott, the new GOP governor in Vermont,
affirmed his commitment to Vermonts goal of 90 percent
green power by 2050.

Chinese express doubts about Trump relations

By Christopher Bodeen

BEIJING People in Beijing expressed doubts

Saturday about President Donald Trumps ability to steer
the U.S. economy and manage China-American relations,
underscoring concerns over trade, Taiwan and other
While Trump didnt mention China in his inaugural
address Friday, he referred often to the country during the
campaign and upended diplomatic protocol after the election by speaking on the phone with the president of selfgoverning Taiwan, the island China considers its own territory.
Aaron Wang, who works for a logistics company, said
he hoped for the best but was wary of Trumps threat to disrupt commerce between the countries, including imposing
a 45 percent tariff on Chinese imports.

I will wait and see what Trump actually does in the

future, but I do hope that the China-U.S. relations can
develop in a good direction under Trumps presidency,
said Wang.
A retired teacher, who would only give her surname,
Wei, said Trump hadnt yet shown that he could handle the
U.S. presidency.
Its really uncertain whether he can properly run the
U.S., Wei said. A business person can run a country very
well, but he can also do a very bad job.
On a visit to Beijing, Dunkin Brands CEO Nigel Davis
said he wanted to reinforce the importance of global free
trade to Trump, who opposes the 12-nation Trans-Pacific
Partnership and has suggested he might renegotiate the
1994 North American Free Trade Agreement.
I will give him concrete examples and talk to him
about how you can overcome obstacles, Davis told The
Associated Press.

Serra dominated by S.I.

Mens figure skating

By Terry Bernal

SAN FRANCISCO For all the relative

youth in Serra basketballs starting lineup,
St. Ignatius is even younger.
With no seniors among St. Ignatius starting five Saturday night, the Wildcats (6-0 in
WCAL, 15-1 overall) showed they are
poised for at least two years of dominance in
the West Catholic Athletic League by virtue
of a convincing 59-49 victory over Serra at
McCullough Gymnasium.
Fueled by junior point guard Darrion
Trammells game-high 18
points, St. Ignatius never
trailed, dominating on
the scoreboard amid a
rowdy third quarter to put
away the win.
The Padres (2-4, 8-8)
ended the first half on a 72 run to close the
Wildcats lead to 29-27.
St. Ignatius took charge
after the break though.
With the physical play escalating, both
teams refused to back down. An early intentional foul on a potential breakaway by
Trammell against Serra senior Andrew Olson

drew the ire of the Wildcats, who responded
by outscoring the Padres 15-6 in the third
It wasnt our goal (to make it a physical
game), Serra junior Henry James said. It
was just how the game transpired. It was a
physical game and sometimes the calls
dont go your way.
A major point of contention by Serra
interim head coach Sean Dugoni was the way
the referees called the game in the post. In
specific, junior big man Jack Wilson ran Serra guard Henry James drives to the basket against St. Ignatius junior Teddy Snyder during

Curry, Thompson each hit 7 3s,

Warriorspull away from Magic
By Terrance Harris

ORLANDO, Fla. The noon Eastern

Standard Time tipoff was more than a little
challenging for Stephen Curry and the
Golden State Warriors. At first, anyway.
Tied at halftime, the Warriors woke up.
Curry and Klay Thompson each finished
with seven 3-pointers and the Warriors won
their seventh straight game, beating the
Orlando Magic 118-98 on Sunday.
This was the first Eastern time zone noon
tip for the Warriors since 1995, when they
lost by 34 points in Orlando.

said of the early start. We were talking
about it in the locker room before the game.

He didnt play in the fourth period.
Curry went 7 for 13 on 3s and scored 27
points while Thompson as 7 for 9 from

Warriors shot 19 of 42 overall from 3-point
range while the Magic went 7 for 28.
After trailing by 11 in the first half and
committing a dozen turnovers, the Warriors
went into the break even at 50.

into foul trouble in the second

half, ultimately fouling out on a
fourth-quarter technical with 6:08
remaining in the game.
The 7-foot Wilson managed just
five points and three rebounds in the
contest. Dugoni has been adamant
amid Serras current three-game losing streak that calls resulting from
contact involving Wilson have
been unbalanced. And it was just
such a play that resulted in the technical a call, Dugoni said, was a
result of Wilson mouthing off to a
St. Ignatius player after the player
grabbed Wilsons jersey.
The non-calls for the big guy, and
he gets frustrated with the ticky-tack
fouls against him, Dugoni said.
Every ref lets them beat him up.
But that is not why we lost.
Indeed, St. Ignatius determined the
outcome by rising to the challenge
any time Serra made a run. The
Wildcats played a hyper-aggressive
man-to-man defense that wore down
the Padres in the second half. Serra

totaled 19 turnovers throughout,

including six in the third quarter and
seven more in the fourth.
St. Ignatius set the tempo in the
first quarter with a deliberate team
concept as head coach Rob
Marcaletti saw each of his five
starters score points over the opening eight minutes. The Wildcats
outscored Serra 19-12 in the first
period, with James putting up quite
an effort to keep the Padres in the
game early on.
The last couple of games I
havent been very aggressive,
James said. So I came in with a different mindset.
James matched Trammells gamehigh of 18 points, including six
points in the first quarter, hitting
three shots on strong, one-man
drives to the hoop.
The first quarter was a battle,
James said. We started off slow. We
didnt come out and battle. But in the
second quarter we played better on
offense and, in turn, we played better
on defense.
Serra responded with a gutsy second-quarter performance, outscoring
St. Ignatius 15-10. With just over a
minute to go in the half, Padres
sophomore Parker McDonald 11
points and four assists drove to

the cylinder to close the lead to 2724. St. Ignatius sophomore forward
Jaedon Roberts responded with an
offensive board for a put-back. But
Serra fired back to close the half on a
James 3-pointer.
With the Padres still trailing by a
bucket as aggressions escalated in
the third quarter, Wildcats sophomore Wrenn Robinson scored eight
straight for his team. Trammell
seemed to be rattled by the early
intentional foul, missing both free
throws in response. Robinson
picked up his teammate though,
drilling a 3-pointer to give the
Wildcats a 34-29 lead two minutes
into the half.
On St. Ignatius next possession, Robinson scored an impressive put-back. He missed an initial
layup attempt, falling to his keister in the process. The 6-foot sophomore quickly hopped to his feet
though to grab his own offensive
rebound and score the bucket while
drawing a foul Wilsons third

Brady leads Pats to record ninth Super Bowl

By Barry Wilner

Patriots 36, Steelers 17


FOXBOROUGH, Mass. The Tom Brady

redemption tour is headed to the Super Bowl.
After beginning the 2016 season suspended
for four games for his role in the Deflategate
scandal, the New England quarterback relentlessly carried the Patriots to an unprecedented
ninth appearance in the title game, and his
seventh. Brady threw for a franchise playoffbest 384 yards and three touchdowns in a 3617 rout of the helpless Pittsburgh Steelers on
Sunday in New Englands seventh consecutive
AFC championship game.
The Patriots are early 3-point favorites
heading to face Atlanta in two weeks in
Houston, seeking their fifth NFL title with
Brady at quarterback and Bill Belichick as
coach. Belichicks seventh appearance in a
Super Bowl will be a record for a head coach.
Brady was banned by NFL Commissioner
Roger Goodell when New England (16-2)
went 3-1 to open the schedule.
Since his return in Week 5, the only defeat

franchises league-record ninth appearance
in the Super Bowl, including titles in the
2002, 2004, 2005 and 2015 editions.
This team showed a lot of mental toughness over the course of the year, Brady
The Falcons have never won the Super
Bowl. This will be Atlantas second trip to
the big game; it lost to Denver in 1999.
The clubs never had a quarterback quite as
good as Ryan, though.
The guy nicknamed Matty Ice went 27
for 38 for 392 yards, four touchdowns and
zero interceptions, while adding a rushing
TD, to boot, leading Atlanta past Aaron
Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers 44-21
on Sunday in the NFC championship game.
We did exactly what weve been doing all
year and it feels really good, Ryan said
after becoming the first quarterback in NFL
history to throw for at least three TDs in
four consecutive postseason games. Well
be ready to go. Thats for sure.

came at home to Seattle, and Brady, 39, had

one of the best seasons of a Hall of Fame-caliber career. He punctuated that in dreary weather similar to the 2014 conference title game
that precipitated the deflated footballs investigation by flattening Pittsburghs secondary.
This is my motivation right here, all
these fellas in front of me, these guys,
Brady said, pointing to his teammates and
ignoring mentions of Deflategate. The
boys showed up to play today.
Bradys main weapon was Chris Hogan.
The previously unheralded receiver found
open spaces everywhere on the field against
a leaky secondary. Hogan caught nine balls
for 180 yards and two scores.
Top wideout Julian Edelman added eight
receptions for 118 yards and a touchdown as
Brady tied Joe Montanas playoff record
with nine three-TD passing performances.
Brady also had his 11th 300-yard postseason game, extending his NFL record, completing 32 of 42 throws.

Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman totaled

eight catches for 118 yards and a touchdown.

Later Sunday, the 39-year-old Brady tied

Hall of Famer Joe Montanas record with a
ninth three-TD postseason game, helping
the Patriots beat Ben Roethlisberger 36-17
for the AFC championship.
Oddsmakers didnt even wait for the second game to end before making New
England a 3-point favorite over Atlanta in
the Super Bowl.
New England opened the season with a 31 record despite using two backup quarterbacks while playing those games without
Brady after he went through a lengthy court
battle in an unsuccessful bid to have his ban
overturned for what became known as
Deflategate. NFL Commissioner Roger
Goodell suspended Brady because the league
said it determined the Patriots intentionally
underinflated footballs used in an AFC
championship game victory two years ago.
During Sundays game in Foxborough,
Massachusetts, spectators mocked Goodell
by chanting Where is Roger? he chose
to attend the game in Atlanta instead.
And as well as Brady played 32 for 42
for 384 yards, those three scores and zero
interceptions it was the way New
Englands defense played that stood out.
Right from the get-go, too: On
Pittsburghs first two drives, nine plays

yielded a total of 26 yards. Then there was

the stand late in the second quarter, when the
Steelers had first-and-goal at the 1-foot line
and wound up settling for a field goal. And,
by games end, the Patriots had forced two
New England ranked No. 1 in the NFL in
points allowed per game at 15.6, and it gave
up only 326.4 yards per game, eighth-best.
MVP favorite Ryan, meanwhile, directed a
unit orchestrated by offensive coordinator
Kyle Shanahan expected to be hired after
the season as San Franciscos new head
coach, hes the son of two-time Super Bowl
champion coach Mike Shanahan that
topped the league in scoring (33.8) and
ranked second in yards (415.8).
Brady, a three-time Super Bowl MVP and
two-time league MVP, and the Patriots also
own a pretty effective offense, even after
losing star tight end Rob Gronkowski to an
injury. New England ranked fourth in yards
(386.2) and third in points (27.6).
Another thing these teams have in common is that neither hurts itself with
turnovers: They tied for the fewest in the
regular season, with 11.
That could be part of why bookies are
expecting a high-scoring game, with most
setting the over-under at 58 points.

Ryan threw for 392 yards and four touchdowns, but it was his 14-yard scoring run

that really set the tone .
Jones was right in the middle of things,
too. After barely practicing during the week
because of a lingering toe injury, he finished off the Packers with a 73-yard catchand-run on Atlantas second snap of the second half, pushing the lead to 31-0 and
essentially turning the rest of the Georgia

3 seconds left in the first half, sending the
Falcons to the locker room up 24-0.
Aaron Rodgers finished 27 of 45 for 287

Swafford wins first PGA Tour title

A few minutes later, with rain

I cant help but be slightly disappointed, Hadwin said after a

here and kind of prove that yesterday was just kind of a continuation
of some good play and kind of get
it done today, but I got beat. I felt

like I did all the right things. Just

a couple shots here and there and
who knows what could have happened. But an incredible week, my
best finish ever.
Swafford tied Bud Cauley for the
lead with a 12-foot birdie putt on

with the birdies on 16 and 17 a
day after dropping three strokes
on the daunting duo.
Stepped up there and hit some
really good shots on those two
holes, knowing what happened
yesterday, Swafford said. I was
just really confident on those two
holes today. I knew the bad stuff
on those holes were gone. I had
already seen it, it had already happened, and just visualizing really
good shots.

Vonn struggles a day after downhill win

By Andrew Dampf

A day after winning a downhill,

Lindsey Vonn discovered how far
she has to go to
regain her dominance in superG as she returns
from two major
defending overall World Cup
champion Lara
Lindsey Vonn Gut remains the
skier to beat in super-G.
Swiss racer Gut extended her perfect run in super-G this season with
a comfortable win Sunday in

Ga r m i s c h - P a r t e n k i r c h e n ,
Germany, while Vonn struggled to a
ninth-place finish.
For her third straight super-G
victory, Gut finished 0.67 seconds
ahead of Stephanie Venier of
Austria and 0.86 in front of Tina
Weirather of Liechtenstein.
Vonn, who won a downhill
Saturday in just the second race of
her comeback from a knee injury
and a broken arm, finished 1.65
seconds behind.
It was hard, very bumpy and
very icy, also with the light its
very dark so its hard to get a good
feeling on this snow and this
slope, Vonn said. I didnt see
Laras run but Im sure she skied
very well. It really took some

aggressive skiing today to win. I

didnt quite have that today.
Gut didnt appear satisfied with
her performance at first, shaking
her head in the finish area, but her
smile grew wider when it became
clear that she had secured her 22nd
career victory.
I had to ski with my head, and I
wasnt so clean on my lines and not
even on the ski, Gut said. I had
the feeling where it was turny in the
middle part that I should have skied
more on my skis and not just as a
passenger of my skis. So I wasnt
really satisfied about that. But
thats the cool thing, when the
course setting is difficult, that
everyone has to come to the finish
and try at least to ski.

he Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA saves thousands of animals every year. Perhaps not as obvious, we also touch many thousands of human lives.
Two years ago, the Leiva family adopted Harvey, a little
guy with a huge smile. One of a select group of humane
organizations accredited by the American Animal Hospital
Association, PHS/SPCAs six veterinarians do an incredible job but some conditions just dont exhibit symptoms
until after an animal leaves us. Soon after adoption,
Harvey was diagnosed with kidney disease and an enlarged
esophagus, serious genetic defects
certain to shorten his life.
Offered the opportunity to return
Harvey, the Leivas chose otherwise.
They loved him. They understood
life would be short. They wanted to
make sure it was also sweet.
PHS/SPCA located a special device
made for dogs who suffer from megaesophagus, and the maker decided to
donate one to the Leivas. This special chair-like contraption allows
these dogs to swallow and keep food
down. Harvey adjusted perfectly.
Now two years later, sweet but all too short, PHS/SPCAs
doctor who first treated Harvey gave the injection which
gently ended his life. The Leivas email to her says it best:
You were truly a blessing. Your love and care for our
Harvey was amazing and I am truly thankful for everything
you did for him from day one!!!! There was no other dog for
us and although it was short-lived it changed our life for the
best. We were simply blessed to have had Harvey with us
and have his happy spirit. We thank you, Dr. Janowitz, for
always being available for us when we would call (I know I
called a lot). We thank you for being there with him and
making sure he was comfortable during his last breath.
He was truly a blessing to our family and we take comfort in the fact that he was happy until the end. He changed
our lives and will forever be in our hearts.

ended up in their predicament. But this year,

theyve doubled the number of volunteers
who will also be conducting surveys of
homeless individuals interested in participating.
The county of San Mateo is committed to
eliminating homelessness in our county and
we cant do that without fully understanding
the true scope of the challenge, Pine said.

Continued from page 1

Our vision for 2020 is that homelessness
is a rare, brief, one-time occurrence; that
wont mean that our 2021 homeless count is
zero across the board, it just means that all of
the unsheltered folks that are out there, we
have talked to them, we have a case file and
theyre progressing toward being ready to
come in and accept services. For those in a
shelter, it means theyre on a plan toward getting out, getting employed and getting
healthy, said Human Services Agency
spokeswoman Effie Verducci.
For a county with a relatively small homeless population as compared to surrounding
San Francisco, Alameda and Santa Clara counties, Verducci said that goal is ambitious but
We definitely have a smaller, more manageable population, Verducci said, noting
they have resources in nonprofit partner
agencies. We have good systems in place to
understand to a really fine degree who our
homeless are. So that enables us to create this
system where we really look in depth at each
persons case and what they need to become
stable over the long term.
In 2015, the One Day Count recorded 1,772
homeless; a nearly 24 percent reduction from
the 2011 and 2013 counts that rose to 2,150
people. There was also a 40 percent decrease
in the number of people living on the streets
from two years prior as only 775 people were

Peaceful protests are a hallmark of our
democracy. Even if I dont always agree, I
recognize the rights of people to express
their views, the president tweeted, still
using his personal account.
The dueling tweets marked his administrations first response to the more than 1
million people who rallied at womens
marches in Washington and cities across
the world. Hundreds of protesters lined the
street as Trumps motorcade drove past on
Saturday afternoon, with many screaming
and chanting.
The Washington rally appeared to attract
more people than attended Trumps inauguration on Friday, but there were no completely comparable numbers. Regional
transportation officials tweeted on Sunday
that 1,001,616 trips were taken on the rail
system on Saturday. Metro spokesman
Dan Stessel had said that on Friday, the
day of Donald Trumps inauguration, just

counted on the streets or in vehicles during

the 2015 count. The number of people in
shelters or institutions has remained fairly
steady, according to the county.
Doing this every two years, its a measure
of our progress, Pine said.
While organizers acknowledge the census
is not completely representative of the yearround homeless population, it does provide
hard data and a reference point.
With the housing crisis spreading
statewide, Verducci acknowledged next
weeks census may not account for families
whove lost their homes and are doubling or
even tripling up under a single household.
She also wondered whether theyd encounter
an increased number of people living in
In years past, a survey has been conducted
on a different day to gather more information
about a persons background and how they

Although the U.S. Department of Housing

and Urban Development requires communities participate in the count, both Pine and
Verducci noted the ongoing census has been
critical to informing policy.
Next weeks data will be one of the last
gathered before the 2020 deadline of the
countys goal to end homelessness. The
HOPE, or Housing our People Effectively,
program was adopted in 2006.
One policy shift in recent times is the
housing first approach, which national statistics have shown to be most effective,
Verducci said. The methodology involves recognizing stable housing is what helps enable
people to seek out other services, she said.
You get people housed really quickly,
within 30 days if possible from them losing
their housing, and then wraparound the services they need, whether its food assistance,
or mental health services, drug and alcohol
dependency services, those types of things,
she said.
But one of the biggest challenges to getting people stabilized and off the street is
many are simply resistant to seeking or
accepting help, particularly the chronically

Even suggestions of weak enthusiasm
for his inauguration clearly irked the new
president, and appeared to knock the
White House off its footing as it took its
earliest steps.
On Sunday, Trumps spoke with Israeli
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who
told his Cabinet that the call would cover
the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Syria,
Iran and other issues. Trump said the call
was very nice but provided no details.
Trump also announced that hes set up
meetings with the prime minister of
Canada, Justin Trudeau, and Mexican
President Enrique Peqa Nieto.
Were going to start some negotiations
having to do with NAFTA, he said of his
meeting with Mexico, along with immigration and security at the border. Trump
has promised to build a wall along the
length of the southern border and insisted
that Mexico will pay for it.
Trump had no plans to sign any executive orders on Sunday. But his chief of
staff, Reince Priebus, said on Fox News
Sunday the president would spend his

first full week in office undoing some of

his predecessors agenda and planned to
sign executive orders on immigration and
Trump has pledged to scuttle trade deals
such as a pending Asia-Pacific agreement
and overturn Obamas executive order
deferring deportations for 700,000 people
who were brought into the country illegally as minors.
Trump plans to meet Monday with a
bipartisan group congressional leaders to
discuss his agenda.
Later in the week, hell address congressional Republicans at their retreat in
Philadelphia and meet with British Prime
Minister Theresa May.
In talk show interviews Sunday, Trumps
advisers defended his criticism of journalists for correctly reporting that his inauguration drew a smaller crowd President
Barack Obama did eight years ago, saying
the Trump administration was supplying
alternative facts.
Theres no way to really quantify
crowds. We all know that. You can laugh at
me all you want, Kellyanne Conway told
NBCs Meet The Press. She added: I

Thats where the countywide expansion of
the Homeless Outreach Team, or HOT, comes
in. The group, comprised of health care
providers, shelter workers, law enforcement
and social workers, proactively hit the streets
to meet homeless people. Theyre able to
work closer with the chronically homeless
while trying to build rapport and offer some
medical services on site, she said.
Pine said another particularly valuable
county program is the mobile health clinics
or street medicine team, especially since
its hard to maintain physical well-being
when a person doesnt have shelter.
Pine, who will vote on issues such as how
to extend funds like Measure K half-cent sales

and the housing crisis, noted the One Day

But the challenge exacerbated by the affordability crisis will likely remain hard to fully
Its much more difficult than one would
think to truly know how many people are
affected by homelessness, Pine said before
reflecting on the last time he participated in
the One Day Count. Its just so hard to fathom. No matter how many times I do it, its
like how can this be?

Cartoonists draw
away stereotypes
By John Rogers


Kaiser Permanente Redwood Citys project for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. day of service was to clean up the gardens at Taft
Elementary School in Redwood City. Two of the more distinguished gardeners helping Kaiser Permanentes 60 volunteers
were Assemblymen Kevin Mullin, left, and Marc Berman. Kaiser Permanente deems the MLK holiday a day on, not off,
working on service projects to improve our neighborhoods.

Neon piece of music history going up for auction

By David Sharp

BIDDEFORD, Maine A bright neon

piece of rock n roll history is going up
for auction a marquee from the legendary Los Angeles club, Whisky a Go
The 13-foot sign, with letters alight in
bright pink, adorned the West
Hollywood club in the 80s and 90s, during the heyday of punk, new wave and
Saco River Auction Co. is putting it up
for bid Wednesday.
Being a guy who likes rock and heavy
metal and music in general, this is like
the holy grail of something thats collectible, said auctioneer Troy Thibodeau.

Over the years, the Sunset Strip club

featured acts including Led Zeppelin, the
Doors, Janis Joplin, Van Halen, Motley
Crue, Frank Zappa and the Ramones.
The weathered marquee says simply,
The Whisky. It was replaced in 2004
with a new sign Whisky a Go Go
that restored the full name used when the
club opened in 1964.
The marquee sold for nearly $35,000
in 2012 and was supposed to be used in a
man cave in a home in Maine,
Thibodeau said. Instead, it ended up collecting dust in a storage unit and wound
up in Thibodeaus possession because
the owner was delinquent on payments.
Thibodeau said he thinks the sign could
fetch somewhere between $25,000 and

The Whisky a Go Go got its start with

dancing, as the name suggests, but live
music quickly became a staple. The
Doors were a house band in the late
1960s, and other acts including the
Byrds and Buffalo Springfield helped to
cement the clubs reputation, said Todd
Mesek, from Rock and Roll Hall of
It got this reputation as this great
place for the hottest new bands, with a
lot of street cred, and for being the place
to be for new music, he said.
The club with a capacity for 500 people faded a bit in the 1970s as big rock
n roll bands played larger venues, like
arenas and stadiums, before getting a
second wind during the punk era in the
late 1970s and early 1980s.

SANTA CLARITA The California Institute of the Arts was

created partly by Walt Disneys desire to bring more top-flight
animators into the profession. And it has during its 47 years,
though for a long time almost all were men.
Now, nearly three-quarters of CalArts more than 250 animation students are women, and theres a new goal: ensure that
when they land jobs, they get to draw female characters reflective of the real world and not just the nerds, sex bombs,
tomboys or ugly villains who proliferate now.
Male villains, for example, can be any shape or size. But
female villains are usually in their menopausal or postmenopausal phases. Theyre older, theyre single, theyre
angry, said Erica Larsen-Dockray, who teaches a class on
The Animated Woman for CalArts experimental animation
Then you have the innocent princess, she added with a
chuckle, whose waist is so small that if she was actually
alive, she wouldnt be able to walk.
To call attention to that cartoonish reality, CalArts has
played host the past two years to The Animated Woman
Symposium on Gender Bias. This year it focused on the roles
of Sidekicks, Nerd Girls, Tomboys and More.
During a recent raucous two-hour symposium, nearly a dozen
student researchers who spent months watching cartoons and
reading comic books questioned why almost all female sidekicks look like nerds. Also why female heroes like Kim
Possible are over-the-top beautiful. And why there are so few
gay, lesbian and transgender characters.
What are nerd-girl stereotypes? They have glasses, theyre
shy, theyre awkward, they have some freckles going on, said
film-video student and artist Madison Stubbs as she flashed
drawings of several, including two of the most popular: Velma
from Scooby-Doo and Meg Griffin of Family Guy.
And we have Tootie from Fairly OddParents, Stubbs said
of the Nickelodeon cartoon shows pig-tailed, braces-wearing,
bespectacled sidekick. Basically, shes just in the show to go,
Oh, Timmy. I want you. Why do you ignore me?
Not that all female cartoon sidekicks are unattractive.
Velma could be the hot girl, Stubbs said, if only she would
lose those nerdy glasses. But every time she does, she trips
over stuff, walks into things and nearly upends another paranormal investigation by those meddling kids from ScoobyDoo Mystery Incorporated.
Kim Possible, who couples her intellect with martial-arts
skills to scuttle nefarious Dr. Drakkens plans to take over the
world, has her own problems. Unable to attract any handsome,
smart guy, she ultimately settles for her nerdy male sidekick,
Ron Stoppable.

Education recently landed grant
money helping classified school
workers go back to school for their
teaching credential.
Meanwhile, local school districts
have offered signing bonuses, attendance incentives, professional development support and a variety of other
creative approaches to attracting
A former teacher and chair of the
Assembly Education Committee,
ODonnell said his bills address the
issue on multiple fronts by ultimately making a teaching credential easier to attain.
I lived through the last teacher
shortage, and it was bad for our kids,
bad for our economy and bad for our
state, he said. We dont want to get
ourselves into the same circumstances.
Along the Peninsula, school officials have struggled to hire teachers
specializing in a variety of fields
such as math, science and special education due partially to the appeal of

under $1 million, respectively.
Revenue from licenses and permits
increased as well, according to a staff
The city increased spending by $5.2
million over the previous year, driven
largely by increased building and
planning activity as well as litigation
costs, which included the citys lawsuit settlement resulting in a decision
to relocate Docktown residents,
according to a staff report.
The citys tax on utility use netted
close to $10 million, most of which is
set to fund infrastructure and other
future capital improvement projects.
The city generated more than $4
million more in revenue from property tax than expected. Property taxes
accounted for just over 40 percent of
the general fund revenue. A small but
noticeable fluctuation in consumer
spending meant sales revenue, which
accounted for close to 20 percent of
the citys general fund revenue, fell
just short of predictions.

rent events or perhaps as an adjunct
to them.

using a proficiency in some of those

fields to pursue a career in the higherpaying tech industry.
ODonnell said lessening the
financial burden for those interested
in teaching such subjects could result
in more young students pursuing
careers in education. The $20, 000
grant program would be spread over
four years.
Money for the program could be
drawn from the state budget, said
ODonnell, who said he hoped Gov.
Jerry Brown would loosen strings on
the state spending plan to fund the
bill, should it reach his desk.
It is cheaper to address this issue
now than it is to wait, he said. If we
wait, it will cost more in terms of dollars and student achievement. You can
be cheap with the dollars, but you
cant be cheap with student success.
This is an investment in Californias
future, and Im confident we can convince the governor this is a wise
The aim of ODonnells other bill
is to do away with a state mandate
which has been on Californias
books since 1970 requiring college
students interested in seeking a career
in teaching to take a one-year credential program after attaining an under-

graduate degree.
This would enhance their velocity
because a teacher could get an education degree that would encompass
their credential as well, he said.
ODonnell limited the scope of AB
170 to pertain only to those wishing
to teach multiple subjects between
Educators seeking work in specialized fields among higher grades
would still need to get an additional
teaching credential.
The recently proposed bills will
first head to the education committee
and ODonnell is hopeful they will
pass out of the Assembly by June.
Im confident, ODonnell said of
the chances for the bills to succeed.
My fellow legislators recognize
California has a problem.
With the knowledge the bills will
not solve all the states struggles,
ODonnell said he believes they
could begin to make a difference in an
issue plaguing many school districts.
Its a two-pronged approach to
addressing a multi-pronged issue, he
said. Its a step in the right direction, but more will have to be done.
But from my perspective, we are only
seeing the beginning of the problem.

Interim Finance Director Starla

Jerome-Robinson said the city
expects property tax revenue to
remain strong, but last years fluctuations make it difficult to predict what
exactly that means for the next years
For Councilwoman Diane Howard,
the citys commitment to a balanced
budget and allocating 20 percent of
revenue toward a reserve fund has
allowed the city to stay afloat during
big events such as the recession and
also as the city navigates smaller
changes like staff transitions. Howard
noted a steady flow of city staff retirements in the last five to 10 years
increasing the cost of retirement benefits and the search for new employees
qualified to take on the citys ongoing
and future projects.
It takes money to hire good people, she said. Youre always hoping
your revenues allow that to happen.
Vice Mayor Ian Bain is watching
these costs closely as the council
readies itself for the possibility of
slowing economic growth.
Were always prepared for whatever
the looming threats are on the horizon. The looming issue is this issue of
unfunded liabilities. People retiring

from the city, the city is paying into

the pension fund, he said.
Bain said he looks forward to
reviewing options for managing the
liability, which he said affects most
cities in California, as the council
continues its budgeting process for
the next fiscal year. Though Bain and
his fellow councilmembers have been
encouraged by the citys increase in
revenue and ability to expand programs, he is not convinced the city
can count on this level of growth in
the future.
I would say that many of us are concerned that were not going to see the
same economic growth that weve
experienced in recent years, he said.
Howard, whose years on the council
span over two decades, said she hopes
the council will make decisions
affording future generations the same
ability to remain resilient should the
economy falter.
You plan for those rainy days
because they will always come, you
just dont know when, she said. We
were able to count on those reserves to
keep us sustainable for a very difficult
time. I hope we plan carefully in the
next couple of years. I do think things
will slow down.

Vidyagauri Kantilal Khatri
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
that Pradeep Kantilal Khatri be appointed
as personal representative to administer
the estate of the decedent. The petition
requests the decedents will and codicils,
if any, be admitted to probate. The will
and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The
petition requests authority to administer
the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority
will allow the personal representative to
take many actions without obtaining
court approval. Before taking certain very
important actions, however, the personal
representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they
have waived notice or consented to the
proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the

9:00 a.m., Department 28, Superior
Court of California, County of San Mateo,
400 County Center, Redwood City, CA
If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the
Calilfornia Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under sectioin
9052 of the Callifornia Probate
Code.Other California statutes and legal
authority may affect your rights as a
creditor. You may want to consult with an
attorney knowledgable in California law.
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court a
Request for Special Notice (form DE154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.
