San Mateo mayor announces retirement


David Lim will not seek third term after almost eight years on City Council
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

From helping steer San Mateo through


the recession to participating in contentious and emotional community debates,
after almost eight years on the City Council
Mayor David Lim announced he will not
seek re-election.
In the midst of his second term as mayor,

David Lim

the 47-year-old said hes


enjoyed his 14 years of
city service but its time
to focus on his young
family.
I think I am a much
better person for having
been involved on the
City Council. Ive been
blessed to work with

some wonderful individuals, the community


and city staff. And Im definitely a wiser
person for it, Lim said.
His term is slated to expire at the end of
the year and although he could have sought
one more run in November, Lim said hes
spent more than a year discussing with his
family whether it would be best for him to
allow a new leader to come forward.
Theres so many talented people in the

community who are smart and earnest and


dedicated. Im looking forward, as a private
citizen, to seeing what the next councilmember and council will do for our city,
Lim said.

Makers of all ages gathered Wednesday at the Belmont Library as part of a county library program to reimagine creative spaces.

Making space for makers

In an effort to protect at-risk renters who find themselves


living in unsafe housing as the affordability crisis grinds
on, San Mateo County lawmakers are looking to crack
down on landlords who fail to maintain their properties.
On Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors will consider a new
rule mandating landlords provide relocation assistance to
tenants who are forced to vacate substandard housing units
that should have never been rented in the first place or that
were rendered unsafe by an owner failing to keep it to code.
Currently, the county often helps tenants who must leave

Residents reimagine creative spaces in county libraries


By Anna Schuessler
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

San Mateo County residents now


have a chance to weigh in on the creative spaces available to them at San
Mateo County libraries.
At a community engagement workshop at the Belmont Library
Wednesday, Jan. 18, creators of all
ages gathered to share enthusiasm for
projects they have been working on at
their libraries and resources they hope
to see in the future.
Library staff are hopeful this meeting, combined with focus groups and

online surveys, will help them reimagine their spaces in a time when a growing number of patrons are turning to
their libraries for technical tools and
resources to build creative projects.
People are looking at libraries
more and more as cultural institutions
and community gathering points,
said
Library
Communications
Manager Amanda Kim.
In step with a growing interest in the
maker movement across the Peninsula,
San Mateo County libraries have
expanded their offerings to residents
hoping to solve problems by doing.
Wednesdays meeting kicked off a sys-

temwide effort to create a master plan


for dedicated maker and digital media
spaces throughout the 12 libraries in
the San Mateo County system.
Exemplified by San Mateos annual
Maker Faire, the maker culture encourages learning through do-it-yourself
projects often involving engineering
concepts and technical components,
such as electronics or robotics. Threedimensional printers available at
every library and programs such as
computer coding classes have allowed
patrons to engage in the building

Millbrae eyes water system fixes


By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

An old network of buried water pipes usually left out of sight and far from the minds
of residents will take center stage in
Millbrae as officials discuss the condition
of the citys underground infrastructure.
The Millbrae City Council will host a special study session Tuesday, Jan. 24, in the
Chetcuti Community Room discussing the
state of the citys water transportation system.
Most of Millbraes potable water pipes
are more than six decades old and have suffered from years of deferred maintenance,
said Mayor Reuben Holober, who believes
more attention in coming years should be
paid to administering overdue fixes.
A lot of the work we have been doing are
emergency repairs, and that is not the kind
of work we should be doing, he said.
Though no decision is slated to be made at
the upcoming meeting, assuring the system
is up to current code, seismically sound and
adequate to accommodate the demands of a
growing community are paramount concerns for officials, Holober said.
Holober said water main breaks have
become increasingly common in Millbrae
over recent years, enhancing the obligation
of officials and residents to collaborate on a
strategy to address issues plaguing the system.
In the past the city hasnt had a plan for
replacing water pipes, so we are going to
start that discussion, he said.
Degrading underground infrastructure in
Millbrae has come into focus recently following sewage spilling into residents
homes caused by blockages in pipes connecting to the citys system.
Three separate lawsuits were filed last year
against the city by residents alleging their
property was severely damaged when

sewage began spewing


from their toilets and
flooding their homes.
Holober noted the discussion at the upcoming
meeting will be specifically focused on the
water system and did not
comment on the sewage
lawsuits, citing a city
Reuben
policy preventing offiHolober
cials from publicly discussing ongoing litigation.
Looking ahead, a primary concern for
Holober are two large water storage tanks
kept near Interstate 280. The two 5-million
gallon containers are due to be replaced and
officials are facing a decision whether to
supplant them with two more similarly
sized tanks, or a single 10-million gallon
version.
Regardless of the action officials ultimately take, Holober said, assuring the
tanks are properly addressed is a matter of
public safety.
There could be millions of gallons of
water flowing down the hillside, and that is
a huge risk, he said.
Considering the variety of projects facing
the city, Holober said officials will ultimately need to identify a plan for financing
the fixes. He noted the fiscal difficulties facing the city have been compounded in
recent years, as infrastructure fixes to the
Hetch Hetchy system, which supplies
Millbrae its water, has been passed along to
rate payers.
Ultimately though, Holober said it is too
early to begin discussions regarding funding for the projects until a more specific
vision of the fixes needed can be identified.
We want to make sure that we have a plan
in place for water before we finalize any
type of financing plans for that, he said.
But considering the vitality of the health

of the citys underground infrastructure,


Holober said it is imperative the community
work together toward developing a plan for
restoration.
People notice parks and streets, but
pipes underground, most people dont know
what their condition is, he said. It is
important that people know about the condition of our water system and the repairs
that are needed to get our system up to date.
In other business at the regularly scheduled City Council meeting, officials will
discuss a potential interest in building a
seasonal ice rink for holiday skaters.
Because talks are still in the formative
stages, Holober was reticent to discuss
details of the proposal, but said he looked
forward to hearing the perspective of fellow
officials.
This is just one of several things we are
discussing in terms of capital projects, he
said.

State confirms Trump opponent as attorney general


By Sophia Bollag
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO In their first official


action since Donald Trump became president, California lawmakers on Monday confirmed a new attorney general who has
vowed to defend the states liberal policies
against the Trump administration and a
Republican Congress.
Xavier Becerra easily cleared the final
hurdle to become the states top law
enforcement official, with a 26-9 vote
along party lines in the Democratic-controlled state Senate. Becerra, who represented the Los Angeles area in the U.S. House
for more than two decades, will be the
states first Latino attorney general.
Democrats said Becerra will fight to
defend Californias protections for the gay
and lesbian community, women and immigrants.
He will be a very strong partner for our
state to work with the federal government
when we can and to resist when we must,
said Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de
Leon, a Los Angeles Democrat.
Some Republicans said they voted
against him because of his promise to challenge federal policies. Republican Sen.
John Moorlach of Costa Mesa says hes
worried Becerra will jeopardize billions of
dollars in federal funding by antagonizing
the Trump administration.
Democrats in the Assembly approved
Becerras confirmation earlier this month.
Becerra worked as a deputy attorney general
for three years before winning an Assembly

change policy. The White House website


said Friday that Trump planned to stop former President Barack Obamas climate
action plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming.
The same day, California regulators
plowed ahead with their own climate change
goals, releasing a 157-page plan to reach a
target of a 40 percent reduction in emissions from 1990 levels by 2030.
Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown has called
Becerra battle-tested from his time in a
polarized Congress and said his experience
will serve him well in defending
Californias policies.
In addition to confirming Becerra,
Legislative leaders have taken their own
steps to challenge the new White House
administration. The day after Trump was
elected president, de Leon and Assembly
Speaker Anthony Rendon issued a joint statement rejecting Trumps campaign message.
While Donald Trump may have won the
presidency, he hasnt changed our values,
they said. We will lead the resistance to
any effort that would shred our social fabric
or our Constitution.

Police seek man who exposed


himself near nature preserve
Police in Palo Alto are searching for
a man who exposed himself near the
entrance to the Palo Alto Baylands
Nature Preserve on Friday afternoon.
A woman in her 30s who reported the
incident was parked on Embarcadero
Road near Embarcadero Way when the
man emerged from some bushes 50 or
60 feet away from her, police said.
The man, described as being
unkempt and in his forties, unzipped
his pants and held his penis in his
hands without urinating or masturbating.
The woman said he did not seem to
know she was there, police said.
The man exposed himself for about
30 seconds before walking west on
Embarcadero Road, passing the
womans car and making eye contact
with her briefly. The woman did not
see a vehicle belonging to him.
The woman said there was no one
else in the area who the man would
have been intentionally exposing
himself to, police said.
The man was described as a lightskinned white man standing about 5
foot 7 inches tall with short brown

The cause of death was not known, but the Fire Department
said the body may be that of a man reported missing Sunday
night.
The powerful weekend tempest added to impressive
amounts of precipitation that have suddenly arrived in a
state after years of withering drought.

Syria civil war talks


off to a rocky start
By Philip Issa
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ASTANA, Kazakhstan Talks


between the Syrian government and
representatives of rebel factions got
off to a rocky start Monday after their
first
face-to-face
meeting
in
Kazakhstan that marked a major shift
in the wars dynamics and confirmed
Russias role as regional heavyweight.
The gathering in Astana, the Kazakh
capital, is the latest in a long line of
diplomatic initiatives aimed at ending
the nearly 6-year-old civil war, which
has killed hundreds of thousands of
people and displaced half of Syrias
population.
The talks are focused on shoring up a
shaky cease-fire declared Dec. 30, not
on reaching a larger political settlement. Syrias bitter divide was on
vivid display as the delegates emerged
from a closed, hour-long session
marked by cold glances and sharp
exchanges.
Syrias U.N. envoy Bashar Jaafari
said the opposition delegation represented terrorist armed groups, and
denounced the opening address delivered by the chief rebel negotiator,
calling it provocative and insolent.
The head of the rebel delegation,
Mohammad Alloush, had described
Syrian President Bashar Assads government as a terrorist entity. He
called for armed groups fighting
alongside it, including the Lebanese
Hezbollah, to be placed on a global
list of terrorist organizations, according to a video leaked by opposition
delegates.
The presence of foreign militias
invited by the regime, most notably
the Lebanese Hezbollah and the Iraqi
Hezbollah ... contributes to the continuation of bloodshed and obstructs
any opportunity for a cease-fire,
Alloush said.
Such outfits were no different, he
added, than the Islamic State group,
which is excluded from the cease-fire.
After an opening ceremony, both
sides split and did not meet face-to-

face again. The meeting later concluded until Tuesday.
Still, it was a significant departure
from past meetings, given the fact that
Syrias government delegation sat
opposite representatives of more than
a dozen armed factions it describes as
terrorists.
U.N. envoy Staffan de Mistura mediated the talks, which are to be followed
by more negotiations in Geneva next
month. A year ago, he was shuttling
between government and opposition
delegations in separate rooms in
Geneva, in talks brokered by the U.S.
and Russia that led nowhere.
The talks in Astana, a former Soviet
republic, reflected the shifting dynamics in Syria since then, with Russia
emerging as the main power broker
and the U.S. relegated to the role of
observer.
The Trump administration is not
directly involved because of the
immediate demands of the transition, the State Department said
Saturday. The U. S. ambassador to
Kazakhstan, George Krol, attended
Mondays session at the luxury Rixos
President Hotel, a Turkish-owned
chain.
Th?e United States remains committed to a political resolution to the

Syrian crisis, which can bring about a


more representative, peaceful, and
united Syria, free of terrorism and
extremism,? said State Department
spokesman Mark Toner.
The two sides were brought to the
table by Russia and Iran, which have
provided crucial support to Assad, and
Turkey, a leading sponsor of the opposition. Turkey, whose president is
embroiled in troubles at home, has
recently improved ties with Moscow,
raising hopes for a breakthrough.
A political figure from the Army of
Islam, a Saudi-backed group once singled out by Moscow as a terrorist
group, leads the opposition delegation
made up heavily of rebel factions, also
a first.
But the Syrian parties remain deeply
divided on almost everything, including who is to blame for repeated ceasefire violations, and whether it should
apply to the al-Qaida-linked Fatah alSham Front, which fights alongside
mainstream rebel factions.
Jaafari accused the opposition of
misinterpreting the idea of the cessation of hostilities, and defended a
government offensive in the Barada
Valley outside Damascus. The fighting
there has cut off water to millions of
the capitals residents for a month.

WASHINGTON The Trump administration on Monday


opened the door to cooperating with Russia or anyone
else to combat the Islamic State group in Syria, suggesting it could reverse a previous refusal to coordinate military
action with Moscow as long as it backs the Syrian government.
I think if theres a way that we can combat ISIS with any
country, whether its Russia or anyone else, and we have a
shared national interest in that, sure, well take it, White
House press secretary Sean Spicer said.
Asked if the openness extended to working with Syrian
President Bashar Assad, who has been condemned internationally for killing civilians, Spicer said, Were not going
to get together with people under the guise of defeating ISIS
if thats not truly their guise. He added, So lets not take
that too far.
Spicer also suggested that Trump already has told Defense
Secretary James Mattis to review how he might change the
U.S. approach to fighting the Islamic State.
I think he has ordered it, Spicer said, adding that Trump
would discuss the matter with Mattis during a visit to the
Pentagon Friday.
At that time, he will continue to have conversations
about what he wants from them and the joint chiefs, he
added, referring to the military service chiefs.
During the more than two years that President Barack
Obama directed U.S. military action against IS in Syria, he
resisted Russian overtures to coordinate military action.
Obama believed Moscow was acting counter to U.S. interests by propping up Assad, whose government Obama
called illegitimate.
The Pentagon has maintained a hotline with the Russian
military to deal with the narrower issue of avoiding air accidents in Syria.

Senate panel narrowly backs Donald


Trumps choice for secretary of state
By Richard Lerdner and Erica Werner
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Rex Tillersons bid to be


secretary of state narrowly won approval
Monday from the Republican-led Foreign
Relations Committee, a move that all but
assures the full Senate will confirm President
Donald Trumps pick for the key Cabinet post.
Members of the panel voted along party
lines, 11-10, to back Tillerson following a
contentious confirmation hearing nearly two
weeks ago that stoked concerns he might not
win the panels recommendation. But just
hours before members cast their votes, Sen.
Marco Rubio, R-Fla., declared his support for
Tillerson, backing off from a challenge to the
new president.
Rubio said that despite serious reservations
about Tillerson, particularly over his views
on Russia, he believed a president was entitled
to significant deference in assembling his
Cabinet.
None of the committees 10 Democrats
voted for Tillerson. They cited concerns

Tillerson would continue to view the world


through the lens of a corporate executive and

Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, the panels
top Democrat, said Tillerson equivocated
during his confirmation hearing on questions
about human rights, civil society and press
and religious freedoms, and repeatedly prioritized narrow business interests ahead of these
core national security interests.
Every nominee for the job going back at
least four decades has been approved by overwhelming votes from both sides in the
Foreign Relations Committee, as senators
have traditionally wanted to deliver a bipartisan display of confidence to the nations top
diplomat. No other nominee since 1977 has
received more than two no votes from the
committee.
Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, the committees Republican chairman, said he has no
doubt Tillerson is well-qualified, citing his
leadership of the energy giant. Corker chided
his colleagues who had demanded information
about Tillersons personal taxes, saying the

Why Donald Trump will find it hard


to make American economy greater
By Christopher S. Rugaber

Among the challenges

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON President Donald


Trumps economic plans are nothing if not
ambitious: Annual growth of 4 percent or
more. A diminished trade gap. The creation
of 25 million jobs over 10 years, including
the return of good-paying factory positions.
It all adds up to an immense challenge,
one that Trump aims to achieve mostly by
cutting taxes, loosening regulations, boosting infrastructure spending and renegotiating or withdrawing from trade deals. At the
top of his agenda: Pulling out of the 12nation Pacific trade agreement, a move
Trump initiated Monday, his first full weekday in office. He has also said he will rewrite
the North American Free Trade Agreement to
better serve the United States.
Yet to come anywhere near his goals,
economists say Trump would have to surmount at least a handful of major hurdles that
have long defied solutions.
He may yet succeed. But he faces deeprooted obstacles that have bedeviled presidents from both parties for years.

A SHIFT TOWARD AUTOMATION


Trumps goal of vastly expanding manufacturing would
require at least the partial reversal of a decades-long trend
toward a service-oriented economy and away from factory
work. Former President Barack Obama sought to add 1
million manufacturing jobs in his second term but came up
two-thirds short.
Even if Trump could return factory production to its heyday
by toughening trade deals and threatening to slap tariffs on
Americas trading partners, a surge of new jobs wouldnt
necessarily follow. The increased use of robots and
automation has allowed factories to make more goods with
fewer workers. Research shows that automation has been a
bigger factor than trade in the loss of U.S. factory jobs.
The trend is spreading outside factory gates. Uber is
experimenting with self-driving cars. Restaurant chains like
Eatsa can now serve meals through an automated orderand-payment system. No cashiers or servers are needed.
You cannot just slap tariffs on and hope that will bring back
middle class jobs, says Daron Acemoglu, an economist at
MIT.The jobs that went to China would come back to robots
rather than people.
A SHORTAGE OF SKILLED WORKERS
Jobs that cant be automated typically require education
beyond high school.Yet not everyone can or wants to attend
college. Many analysts say the economy needs better and
more widely available post-high school education and
training, whether through community colleges, vocational
schools or boot camps offering technology training.
Such a boot camp is how Sharnie Ivery managed to move
beyond the retail and sales jobs hed held right after high
school. In 2013, Ivery began a six-month computer coding
boot camp at Flatiron School in New York through which he
obtained internships. Last year, he began working as a

software developer at Spotify, the music streaming service.


There werent many opportunities for a career in
technology without training and experience, Ivery, 24, said.
Last year, the Obama administration opened some financial
aid programs to Flatiron and other boot camps. But such
efforts remain in an experimental phase, and any widespread
successes from those programs are likely years away.
A lack of technological skills isnt an issue only for the tech
industry itself. Modern manufacturing work increasingly
requires high-tech know-how requiring some education or
training beyond high school. Since the economic recovery
began in 2009, only 12 percent of manufacturing jobs have
gone to workers with no more than a high school degree,
according to research by Georgetown Universitys Center
for Education and the Workforce.
SLUGGISH WORKER PRODUCTIVITY
In the past decade, the growth of American workers
productivity the amount they produce per hour worked
has slumped to roughly half its long-term average.
That slowdown has imposed a dead weight on the economy.
When employees become less efficient, it slows economic
growth, and companies cant raise pay without boosting
prices. A faster expansion needs a combination of more
people working and more efficient workers.
Trumps proposals might help somewhat. He favors
expanded tax breaks for companies that invest in new
machinery and equipment, which typically make workers
more productive. And hes vowed to build more roads,
tunnels and other infrastructure, which can save on shipping
and commuting costs.
Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of the conservative American
Action Forum, says Trumps push to loosen regulations might
also lead to more startup companies, which could prod
established businesses to become more efficient.

WASHINGTON Charting a new


American course abroad, President Donald
Trump withdrew the United States from the
sweeping Trans-Pacific Partnership on
Monday, using one of his first actions in
office to reject a centerpiece of Barack
Obamas attempts to counter China and deepen U.S. ties in Asia.
For Trump, the move was a fulfillment of a
central campaign promise. He has repeatedly
cast the 12-nation trade pact which was
eagerly sought by U.S. allies in Asia as
detrimental to American businesses
Great thing for the American worker that
we just did, Trump said in brief remarks as he
signed a notice in the Oval Office.
The Obama administration spent years
negotiating the Pacific Rim pact, though the
mood in Washington on trade soured over
time. Obama never sent the accord to
Congress for ratification, making Trumps
actions Monday largely symbolic.
For Trump, the start of his first full week in
office amounted to a reset after a tumultuous
weekend dominated by his and his
spokesmans false statements about inauguration crowds and their vigorous complaints
about media coverage of the celebrations.
While Trumps advisers have long accepted
his tendency to become fixated on seemingly insignificant issues, some privately conceded that his focus on inauguration crowds
was unhelpful on the opening weekend of his
presidency.
On Monday, the new president tried to
regroup.
In addition to his executive action on TPP,
Trump signed memorandums freezing most
federal government hiring though he
noted an exception for the military and
reinstating a ban on providing federal money
to international groups that perform abortions or provide information on the option.
The regulation, known as the Mexico City
Policy, has been a political volleyball,
instituted by Republican administrations and
rescinded by Democratic ones since 1984.
The actions were among the long list of
steps candidate Trump pledged to take on his
opening day as president. But other Day
One promises were going unfulfilled
Monday, including plans to propose a constitutional amendment imposing term limits
on members of Congress and terminating
Obamas executive actions deferring deportations for some people living in the U.S. illegally.
Spokesman Sean Spicer said Monday that
Trump intended to follow through on his proposals, though on a more extended timeframe
to ensure maximum attention for each move.
Yet he appeared to suggest that Trump
would not move quickly or perhaps at all
to reinstate deportations for young immigrants protected from deportation under the
Obama administration.

Trump overshadows young migrants emotional trip to Mexico


A look at DACA
WHAT IS DACA?
Former President Barack Obama created DACA by executive
order in 2012, providing temporary protection for immigrants
brought to the United States by their parents before the age
of 16 and who live in the country illegally.
WHAT DOES DACA PROVIDE?
Under the program, recipients receive a Social Security
number, allowing them to work, pay taxes, study and travel
for a two-year period. Applicants pay $465 in fees and can
renew after two years.
IS DACA THE SAME AS THE DREAM ACT?
They are different programs but have similar concepts. The
DREAM Act was federal legislation that would have provided
many of the same protections as DACA, but it repeatedly
failed in Congress. Obama bypassed Congress and created
the deferred action program on his own with an executive
action. Many DACA recipients are informally known as
DREAMers because of the original proposal, which stands
for Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors.
HOW MANY IMMIGRANTS ARE ENROLLED IN DACA?
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the agency that
administers DACA, reported that 752,000 immigrants had
been approved for the program as of December 2016. In

2012, the nonpartisan think-tank Migration Policy Institute


estimated that about 1.75 million immigrants were eligible
for DACA.
CAN ONE TRAVEL UNDER DACA?
DACA recipients can apply for Advanced Parole, a provision
that allows them to travel for family emergencies, education
or work purposes for a $360 fee. USCIS estimates that at least
22,340 DACA recipients have traveled since 2012.
WHERE DOES TRUMP STAND ON DACA?
While Trump has expressed some empathy for young
immigrants, he promised to revoke the program during his
campaign for president. He called DACA an illegal amnesty
and vowed to immediately terminate it. Asked about DACA,
Trumps spokesman said Monday that the president would
focus first on border security and those with criminal records
who live illegally in the U.S.
WHAT HAPPENS IF DACA IS ENDED?
Its unclear what path Trump would take if he terminates
DACA. He could stop new applications and let the existing
work permits expire, or immediately seek out those enrolled
to revoke their permits and begin deportation proceedings.
Such efforts would be made easier by the fact that recipients
had to provide their addresses and fingerprints to apply.

MOLCAXAC, Mexico Tamara Alcala


Dominguez sobbed, barely able to speak, as
she buried her face in the sweater of the
woman who cared for her when she was a
toddler.
My little girl, I hugged you so much,
Petra Bello Suarez tearfully told her now 23year-old granddaughter. I have you in my
arms, my girl. ... You found me still alive.
Alcalas mother left her with Bello at age
2 when she went to seek a better life in the
United States. A year later, the little girl
joined her mother and for two decades
Alcalas undocumented status prevented her
from returning to Mexico.
Then she became one of the hundreds of
thousands protected from deportation under
an Obama administration program known as

DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood


Arrivals, which gave work permits to immigrants brought to the U.S as children and
living in the country illegally.
Alcala burst out of the shadows. In her
American home in Everett, Washington, she
got an officially sanctioned job and pursued
an education with dreams of becoming a doctor. And last year she enrolled in a special
program that allowed her to make this, her
first journey back to Mexico, and then
return safely again to the United States.
Grandmother and grandchild spent nearly
two weeks catching up on 20 years, a
reunion made bittersweet by the uncertainty
ahead: They said their goodbyes just before
Donald Trump took office amid vows to
undo the protections his predecessor put in
place, promises that leave immigrants worried about what comes next.

Regulation on insurers home
replacement estimates upheld
SAN FRANCISCO The California
Supreme Court on Monday upheld a state
regulation that aims to give homeowners a
more accurate insurance quote for replacing
homes destroyed or damaged in wildfires.
The states insurance commissioner had
the power to issue the 2011 regulation, a
unanimous court said, rejecting a legal challenge by The Association of California
Insurance Companies that argued that the
commissioner exceeded his authority granted by the state Legislature.
The association did not immediately comment. It is challenging the regulation on
two other legal fronts that the California
Supreme Court did not address, so the regulation still faces possible invalidation.

Washington.
At an early White House meeting with business leaders, Trump
repeated a campaign promise to
cut regulations by at least 75 percent. He also said there would be
advantages to companies that
make their products in the U.S.,
suggesting he will impose a substantial border tax on foreign

goods entering the country.


Trump also signed a memorandum announcing the United
States intention to withdraw from
the multi-nation trade agreement
known as the Trans-Pacific
Partnership, and said he would
renegotiate the North American
Free Trade Agreement.
Companies that issued results or

Yahoos fourth quarter


has modest strides amid
security breach fallout
By Michael Liedtke
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The SAN FRANCISCO Yahoos financial performance improved slightly during


the fourth quarter while the company dealt
with the fallout from massive security
breaches that have jeopardized the $4.8 billion sale of its internet operations to
Verizon Communications.
The fourth-quarter report released Monday
provided the latest snapshot of a shrinking
company that has been steadily losing
ground in the digital advertising market that
generates most of its revenue. Yahoo also
disclosed the closure of the Verizon deal will
be delayed for up to three months.
Although cost-cutting helped Yahoo
bounce back from a loss during the same
time in the previous year, the companys
net revenue slipped yet again to extend a
downturn that has lasted through most of
CEO Marissa Mayers four-and-half-year
tenure. In a sign of modest progress,
Yahoos revenue fell 4 percent after subtracting ad commissions, snapping a streak

of four consecutive quarters of double-digit


declines. Yahoos longrunning slump culminated in the companys
agreement last summer to
sell its email service,
websites and mobile
applications to Verizon.
But after striking the
Marissa Mayer Verizon deal, Yahoo
revealed that it had been
hit by two separate hacking attacks that
stole the email addresses, birth dates,
answers to security questions, and other personal information from more than 1 billion
user accounts. The break-ins occurred in
2013 and 2014, raising further questions
about Yahoos security controls and the timing of its disclosures.
The Securities and Exchange Commission
has opened an investigation into whether
Yahoo should have announced the security
breaches sooner than it did, according to a
report in The Wall Street Journal that cited
unidentified people familiar with the matter.

McDonalds sales dropping in U.S.,


underscoring comeback challenges
By Candice Choi
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK McDonalds is trying


stage a comeback, and offering Egg
McMuffins all day wont be enough to get
more people in its restaurants.
The worlds biggest burger chain said
U.S. sales dipped 1.3 percent at established
locations for the final three months of the
year. Customer traffic also continued to
slide for all of 2016 despite the rollout of
an all-day breakfast menu, marking the
fourth straight year of declines domestically.
Since the start of 2013, customer counts
are down 10 percent at established U.S.
locations.
Overseas, the companys quarterly performance was better, and sales rose globally.
The Oak Brook, Illinois-based company
attributed the sales decline at home to a
tough comparison from the year-ago peri-

od, when it introduced


the all-day breakfast
menu that generated
enormous buzz online.
The results underscore
the
hurdles
for
McDonalds as it pushes
to revitalize its image
while facing broader
challenges, including
Steve
stores sellEasterbrook convenience
ing more foods and
cheaper groceries encouraging people to
eat at home. The NPD Group said this
month it expects customer traffic for the
overall restaurant industry to remain
stalled this year, as it was in 2016.
McDonalds CEO Steve Easterbrook said
the company expects to start drawing more
customers with compelling value deals and
convenient ways to order. It also recently
introduced its Big Mac in different sizes,
and has been testing fresh beef for some of
its burgers.

Warriors served stunning loss in Miami

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MIAMI Dion Waiters went from air ball


to game-winner.
Waiters made a 3-pointer with 0.6 seconds
left to cap his 33-point effort, and the
Miami Heat beat Golden State 105-102 on
Monday night to end the Warriors sevengame winning streak.
It was the second straight game in which
Waiters tied his career high, and this one

came after a frantic final


few minutes in which the
Heat blew a 10-point lead
with a Waiters air ball
of a 15-footer as part of
that collapse. But he
more than atoned with
Dion Waiters his last shot of the
night, sending Miami to
its biggest surprise of the season.

Hes not scared. Hes not afraid, Heat


coach Erik Spoelstra said. Hes fearless. He
wants those moments as much as anybody.
Kevin Durant tied the game on a dunk with
11. 7 seconds left. With no timeouts,
Waiters walked the ball up the court, made a
couple moves on Klay Thompson, and then
connected from straightaway.
I knew it was good, Waiters said. He let
me get to my shot.

Stephen Curry missed a 3-point try for the


Warriors as time expired.
Goran Dragic scored 19 points for Miami

Sophs lead Scots upset


Athletes of the Week

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The difference in this years CarlmontSequoia boys basketball rivalry was supposed
to be the indomitable play of the Cherokees.
Unlike last year, when the rivals split the
season series and Sequoia went on to a modest
fourth-place finish in the Peninsula Athletic
League South Division, this years Cherokees
entered Round 1 with Carlmont tied atop the
standings with an unbeaten league record.
As Carlmonts thrilling 54-49 upset at
Stogner Gymnasium took
shape, however, it was a
pair of Scots sophomores
that proved the difference,
as guards Sho Takahashi
and Lajuan Nelson delivered performances worthy
of Daily Journal Athletes
of the Week honors.
Nelson scored a teamSho Takahashi
high 17 points, knocking
down three 3-pointers in the game, including
two in a fourth period during which the Scots
outscored the Cherokees 21-14 to take the
lead. Takahashi was a pivotal backcourt complement, running the point and scoring 11
points, while fronting a Scots man-to-man
defense that held Sequoia to a season-low 49
points.
We (Nelson and Takahashi) have been playing beside each other for a while, even before
high school, Takahashi said. We have good
chemistry.
The sophomore guard tandem first took the
floor together in the sixth grade at Ralston
Middle School. Since then, from school ball
to AAU club, Takahashi and Nelson have
played together year round ever since.
Now, in their first varsity season, the secret
to their success remains the same.
I just try to get [Nelson] open as much as
possible because hes a good shooter,
Takahashi said. And when the defense is on
him, I try to create opportunities for myself.
The opportunities for both opened up big

Giants importing Korean third baseman Hwang


By Janie McCauley
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO The San Francisco


Giants were working Monday to finalize a
minor league contract with South Korean
infielder Jae-gyun Hwang, who could provide some insurance at third base.
A person with knowledge of the negotiations said Monday the deal was not yet
complete and would include an invitation
to big league spring training if Hwang
passes a physical.
Hwang would earn $1.5 million if on the

major league roster out


of spring training, the
person said. There would
be additional performance bonuses.
Last year with the Lotte
Giants of the Korean
Baseball Organization,
Hwang set new careerhighs with a .330 batJae-gyun
ting average and 104
Hwang
RBIs, while matching
his career-best with 26 home runs. He also
stole 24 bases, ranking seventh in the KBO.

While San Francisco has Eduardo Nunez


penciled in as the starting third baseman and
unlikely playoff star Conor Gillaspie also
in the mix, the Giants know how quickly
things can change as Nunez dealt with a
strained right hamstring late in the season
and couldnt start the four-game NL Division
Series loss to the Chicago Cubs. Second
baseman Joe Panik was limited to 127
games last year and dealt with a concussion
after a back injury derailed his 2015 season.
San Francisco also added veteran infielder
Jimmy Rollins this offseason on a minor
league deal.

ll be honest: I dont pay a lot of


attention to frosh-soph/junior varsity
results. With so many varsity teams
to keep track of, it would be nearly impossible to keep up with the JV scene as well.
Rare is the time I get much of chance to

those rare instances
and I caught a classic even more
than I thought.

Skyline scoring leader listed as day-to-day


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The Skyline mens basketball team


received relatively good news Monday as
sophomore guard Justin Gutang was diagnosed with a severe ankle sprain rather than
a potential season-ending injury.
Gutang departed last Fridays 91-80 loss
to Caada College when, seven minutes
into the game, he landed awkwardly after a
layup attempt. After writhing in pain on the
floor or several minutes, Guatng had to be
helped from the court.
Trojans head coach Justin Piergrossi was
concerned about a possible season-ending
injury, but X-rays showed the ankle was not
fractured. Gutang will miss Wednesdays
road game at Las Positas, but is listed as
day-to-day going forward, according to
Piergrossi.
Im very happy that he didnt have anything fractured because that would have
probably impacted his future as well,
Piergrossi said. I know he really wants to
get back on the court so I know hell do
everything he can to return.
With fifth-place Skyline teetering around
the .500 mark in both its Coast Conference
North and overall records at 2-3, 11-9,
respectively, any absence of Gutang looms
large. The Burlingame graduate currently
leads the Trojans in scoring with 14.6
points per game, but is also an all-around
presence, averaging 4. 7 rebounds, 2. 2
assists and 1.4 steals.
Obviously, Justin provides an awful lot
of everything points, assists, rebounds
and energy, Piergrossi said. No one person can replace Justin. So everyone has to
play a little harder but its a good opportunity for some guys to get more minutes
and experience under their belt.

Skyline sophomore Justin Gutang grimaces in pain during a layup that left him with a
severely sprained ankle last Friday in the Trojans 91-80 loss to Caada College.
Gutang has not missed a game since last
season on Dec. 13, 2015, of his freshman
year, a game Skyline lost to College of the
Redwoods 86-83.
Expected to start in Gutangs place
Wednesday is freshman Romel Greene. The
South City product has started one previous
game this season and is averaging 4.7
points per game.
In terms of Gutangs future, Piergrossi
said the sophomore is being recruited by
several Division II programs.
I have the confidence that he has the
ability to continue playing basketball (at

the next level) if thats what he want to do,


Piergrossi said.
A true sophomore, Gutang graduated from
Burlingame in 2015, leading the 2014-15
Panthers to the Central Coast Section
Division III semifinals while pacing the
team in scoring with 15.7 points per game.
As a junior, he ranked third on the team

the hot hand at a given moment, but running


an effective backcourt screen to give his
shooters space.
Its an oddball screen in the backcourt,
Smith said. Just three to four seconds of not
having a guy right in their face was able to
help a lot.
Takahashi has brought a needed ball-handling presence this season, according to senior forward DeAndre Minor 14 points and
six rebounds in the game, including 10 points
in the second half after the Scots posted a
3-9 record in South Division play last year.
Fridays win was already their third win in five
league games this season.
With Sho, hes helped us a lot, Minor
said. Last year we had trouble breaking the

press but, if we need him to, he can always


weave through it.
And Takahashis sophomore counterpart
has added a versatile shooter to the mix.
[Nelson] always has a scoring mindset,
Minor said. So whenever he gets the ball hes
looking to shoot.
While the Scots led throughout the final six
minutes of regulation, the fast-paced
Cherokees were breathing down their neck the
rest of the way. With just over one minute
remaining though, and Carlmont leading 4744, Nelson gave his team a two-possession
cushion by drilling a critical 3 from the corner.
According to Takahashi, without that shot,
its a completely different outcome.

DENVER Patrick Marleau scored four


goals in the third period and the San Jose
Sharks beat the last-place
Colorado Avalanche 5-2
on Monday night for
their fifth straight win.
Marleau scored in a
variety of ways to break
open a game tied at 1
heading into the third: He
tipped a shot in off the
Patrick Marleau post, scored on a wraparound, lined in a wrist
shot and finally lifted a backhander over
rookie goaltender Spencer Martin.
Brent Burns had a goal and two assists as
the two teams concluded their home-andhome set. The Sharks beat the Avalanche 32 in overtime on Saturday.
Jarome Iginla and Andreas Martinsen
scored for Colorado, which fell to 1-10-1
over its last 12 games. Matt Duchene, the
teams leading goal scorer, was a late
scratch due to an illness and left the
Avalanche with only 19 players. Duchenes
absence raised some eyebrows since the talented forward has been the subject of recent

See SHARKS, Page 14


[Sequoia] really started pressuring even
harder in the last minute than they were the
whole game, Takahashi said. If we miss that
shot it gives them a lot confidence.
Carlmonts victory shook up the South
Division standings. With Menlo-Atherton
travelling to Sequoia this Friday, first-place
M-A now holds a one-game advantage over
the second-place Cherokees. And the Scots
move into a third-place tie with Woodside;
those two also play this Friday.
More importantly, the upset now has the
Scots riding as high as any team in the PAL.
I think it was huge for us as a team,
Takahashi said. It shows were capable of
beating any team in our league and wont be
intimidated by anyone.

Hull midfielder Mason able NASCAR overhauls playoff format

By Jenna Fryer

LONDON Hull midfielder Ryan Mason has been able to


talk about the clash of heads that left him with a fractured
skull during a Premier League match at Chelsea.
The 25-year-old Englishman underwent surgery after the
incident, but Hull said Monday that
Mason was in stable condition.
Ryan has been speaking of the incident yesterday and will continue to be
monitored at the hospital over the coming days where the club will remain in
close contact with Ryan, his family and
the staff at St. Marys, Hull said.
Ryan and his family have also been

Mason was taken to the neurosurgery unit at a hospital
close to Stamford Bridge on Sunday after the collision with
Chelsea defender Gary Cahill as they went to head the ball.
Mason received treatment for almost 10 minutes on the
field before departing on a stretcher while receiving oxygen.
Cahill, along with Chelsea captain John Terry, reportedly visited Mason in the hospital on Sunday evening.

It was a pretty awesome experience, Martin said after the morning
skate. I got to play against a really
good team in my first game. Getting to
play the same team again is going to
be the same experience.
A third-round pick by Colorado in
2013, Martin spent most of the season
with San Antonio of the American
Hockey League, where he was 15-9-2
with a 2.62 goals-against average. He
was recalled with Semyon Varlamov
sidelined by a nagging groin injury.
Varlamov is out until after the All-Star
break.

the first time.


Whoever wins, Im just so excited
that I have an opportunity to play
again, Williams said. Thats all Im
focused on.
Williams dropped four service games
against Pavlyuchenkova, but she
responded each time by breaking
back. In the tiebreaker, she trailed 3-1
before winning the last six points
clinching
the
match
on
Pavlyuchenkovas double-fault.
The seven-time major winner has
advanced through the tournament
without dropping a set, recovering
from a right elbow injury that forced
her to withdraw from a warmup tourna-

ment in New Zealand.

With her run to the Wimbledon semifinals last year, Williams became the
oldest
woman
since
Martina
Navratilova in 1994 to advance so far
at a major. Navratilova was 37, years
258 days at the end of Wimbledon that
year.
The record belongs to Billie Jean
King, who was 39 years, 223 days
when she reached the Wimbledon
semifinals in 1983.

Tiger returns to Riviera, where PGA Tour career began


By Beth Harris
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES Tiger Woods is roaring


into the new year, preparing to play four
times in five weeks in his return to the PGA
Tour after a 15-month absence. One of his
stops includes a return to his hometown
tournament in Los Angeles, where he made
his first start on the pro tour as a skinny 16year-old.
Woods has stayed away from Riviera,
which hosts the newly renamed Genesis
Open next month, since 2006. He loves the
venerable course nestled in a posh residential neighborhood overlooking the Pacific
Ocean, but has never won there.
And that led him to avoid it.
Ive just never played it well, he said
Monday as occasional rain pelted the already
soggy course. Thats the only reason.
Woods debuted at Riviera in 1992 on a
sponsors exemption. The teenager from
nearby Orange County shot 72-75 to miss
the cut.
I felt fine on that first tee but as I took the
club back, I never felt nerves like that, he
recalled. I was skinny. I looked like a 1iron. I didnt weigh a lot. I had a lot of
speed.
Woods birdied his first hole and thought to
himself: Thats how you want to start off
your PGA Tour career.
On his second hole, his shot smacked a
fence and before long the teenager was 17
shots behind Davis Love III after 36 holes.
Love eventually lost in a playoff to Fred
Couples.
I have so far to go, Woods recalled
thinking. Im not that good.
But by 1997, he was Masters champion

and well on his way to winning 79 PGA Tour
career titles.
Twenty-five years later, here we are, said
Woods, whose best finish at Riviera was a
tie for second in 1999.

Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula

From the end of 1999 to early 2000,


Woods either won or was runner-up in 10 of
11 PGA events.
The exception was Riviera, where he tied
for 18th.

The last time he played Riviera was in


2006. Woods was among those who got
caught out in the rain without an umbrella.
He made the cut on the number, but then
withdrew the next morning because of the
flu.
Although Riviera is considered his hometown tournament, Woods is partial to Torrey
Pines near San Diego, where hell start his
season on Thursday in the Farmers Insurance
Open. Hes won that tournament seven times
along with a U.S. Open playing on a bad
knee at the La Jolla course.
Woods will be testing his surgically
repaired back starting at Torrey Pines. Next
week, hell jet to Dubai for an event before
returning to Los Angeles for the Feb. 13-19
Genesis Open and then playing the Honda
Classic in Florida. A lot of travel in a short
time for the 41-year-old.
If my back feels good, I know I can prepare enough and I know I can play, he said.
I need to have my health at a state where I
can prepare. When I feel that way, I know I
can shoot scores and win golf tournaments.
Plagued by injuries after his first back surgery in 2014, Woods had two more surgeries
in the fall of 2015 and didnt play again until
his Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas
last month. He finished 15th in the 17-man
field.
I just need to get out there and do it,
Woods said. I feel like Im strong enough, I
can handle the workload. Feeling good about
it and doing it are two different things.
Three weeks into the new year, Woods
already has the Masters on his mind.
I would love to play and I would love to
win, he said. Im hoping I can get everything right, so yes, Im looking forward
to it.

to put another six-tenths of a second back on the clock. It doesnt
seem like six-tenths of a second
is lot, but in the world of basketball, its huge. Its the difference
between getting a shot off or not.
Coming out of a timeout, the
Panthers inbounded the ball.
Yousef Benchohra ashed to the
center of the key. The 6-0 sophomore wing jumped up to receive
the pass and in the same motion
pushed it toward the basket, twisting his torso to face the rim while
his lower body was still heading
toward the sideline.
Nothing but net.
It was essentially an alley-oop
without a dunk and Benchohra
assured himself of being the center of conversation at school this
week.
But the game wasnt over.
Benchohras bucket simply tied
the game. It took two more overtime periods before Burlingame
nally pulled out a 42-36 win.
What made the game even more
amazing? The fact that
Benchohras basket came at the
end of the FIRST overtime. That
means it took the Panthers three
overtimes to nally get past the
Bearcats.
Needless to say, that threw off
the start of the varsity girls and
boys games, with the boys not
tipping off until about 8:15 p.m.,
a half-hour late.

If you read the Daily Journals
sports section with any regularity, youve noticed that in addition
to featured games, we try to put
together a wrap up of all the other
local results on a given day or
night.
You may wonder: but why does
Sacred Heart and Menlo always
get their results into the paper,
but my favorite team/school doesnt?
Simply put: those schools
report their results to the Daily
Journal. There are a handful of
coaches and teams who email
their results religiously, win or
lose, night or day.
But there are still far too many
coaches who do not, and Im
going to call out boys basketball
and boys soccer coaches especially those in the Peninsula
Athletic League. There are a few
coaches who send in scores, and
to them I give utmost thanks. But
there are many more who do not.
And it couldnt be more simple.
The best way to assure your
teams result gets into the Daily
Journal is to email them to
sports@smdailyjournal.com. Not
only does reporting scores allow
your team and players to get the
credit theyre due, but its also a
way for the Daily Journal sports
department to know whats going
on league-wide.
And even though were the San
Mateo Daily Journal, we cover the
sports for the entire PAL, so you
coaches in North County, we want
your results, too.

input on the ballot hell send to

How is Russell Westbrook not
in the starting lineup? Spoelstra
asked. I know how its important
to players and especially guys that
are giving their heart and soul and
emotions into the game and
should be rewarded for it. I do have
to admit, in some years past, I
would just give it to my assistants. Not anymore.
Spoelstra said he told Heat center
Hassan Whiteside, another All-Star
reserve hopeful, that to be picked
as an All-Star backup wouldnt be a
consolation prize but rather would
be a sign of respect.
Players, theyre not all voting.
Fans, you have no idea where
thats coming from, Spoelstra
said. But coaches ... theyre paid
to figure out who helps teams win
and I think thats the ultimate
compliment if you get voted in by
coaches. So Im taking that
responsibility a lot more seriously than I have in the past.

Trump can do plenty on his own


to unravel Obama health care law
By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar

potential impact.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

INSURANCE MANDATE

WASHINGTON President Donald Trump


can do plenty on his own to unravel the
Obama health care law, but some of those
actions would create disruptions that undermine his administrations early promises.
Other less sweeping steps could open the
way for big changes, but might not get as
much notice.
Suspending enforcement of tax penalties
on people who remain uninsured would win
Trump immediate cheers from the political
right for taking down a widely unpopular
requirement. But experts say it would destabilize insurance markets by allowing
healthy people to opt out, raising costs for
taxpayers and remaining consumers. It
would also risk a protracted court battle.
Less visible but just as important, the
administration appears to have wide latitude
to let states experiment with Medicaid funds
and other federal financing. That could provide a pathway for GOP-led states to try
their ideas.
For now, the executive order that Trump
signed Friday night has changed very little.
Consumers can still sign up on
HealthCare.gov. The IRS is enforcing fines
on people who remain uninsured, as it
reviews Trumps order. Insurers are providing medical benefits defined in the
Affordable Care Act.
The ACA is a big, complicated statute
and the administration doesnt have a
Senate-confirmed secretary and the highlevel political staff you would need to push
through these proposals, said Nicholas
Bagley, a professor at the University of
Michigan Law School. Right now we are
very much in a waiting game, but I would

The administration could decline to


enforce the ACAs requirement that most
people carry health insurance, or it could
add new hardship exemptions. For example, GOP lawmakers have called for an
exemption in communities where only one
health insurer continues to offer coverage.
Likelihood: High.
Impact: It depends on how sweeping the
administrations actions are. Declining to
enforce the mandate is likely to trigger an
exodus by insurers. Adding to the Obama
administrations list of exemptions might
be feasible.

expect movement soon.
Bagley and a colleague have identified
about 25 areas in which the Trump administration could act unilaterally, from a requirement that women employees of religiousaffiliated nonprofits have access to free
birth control, to fines on people remaining
uninsured. The scope of the executive order
will be an issue at Tuesdays Senate Finance
Committee confirmation hearing for
Trumps health secretary pick, Georgia congressman Tom Price.
Still, there are practical and political limits on the administration. As the executive

order made clear, changes to regulations


have to follow a legally established
process, which can take time. And actions
that disrupt the insurance markets could
backfire politically, because Trump has
promised to provide insurance for everybody and lower costs, while other
Republicans offered assurances they wont
pull the rug out from anyone currently
covered.
Implementing changes would fall to three
departments: Health and Human Services,
Treasury, and Labor. Heres a look at a few of
the options, as well as their likelihood and

A federal district judge has agreed with


House Republicans that the Obama health
law lacks specific legal authority to pay
insurers billions to reduce consumers
deductibles and copayments. The case is on
hold, but unresolved.
If the Trump administration agrees with
the House and stops the payments, insurers
would bail.
It would destroy the individual insurance
market and throw millions off their coverage, including many Trump voters, said
Tim Jost, an emeritus professor at
Washington and Lee University School of
Law in Virginia.
Likelihood: A deal between the House and
the administration could resolve the matter.
Having won its legal argument, Congress
could provide at least temporary spending
authority.

LIM
Continued from page 1
announced Monday he wouldnt seek a third
term, however, it wasnt the first time hes
publicly considered stepping down. In the
June 2016 election, he ran for judgeship in
Alameda County, which would have necessitated him leaving the council.
With twin 11-year-old daughters, Lim said
he plans to spend his additional free time
focused on being an active father.
Once theyre teenagers, they probably
wont want to have much to do with me,
Lim said with a chuckle. Im going to be
selfish and enjoy every moment of being a
dad.
Even without a seat at City Halls dais,
Lim will stay active in his community
whether its teaching youth sports, getting involved in the schools or volunteering for a nonprofit.
I dont think youre going to get rid of
me, its not in my blood, Lim said.
It was a chance attendance at a Planning
Commission meeting more than a decade
ago when Lim first caught the political bug.
After seeing the city at work, he volunteered
to serve on the Community Relations
Committee and in 2009 won a seat on the
City Council.

Years later, he recalled some of his proudest accomplishments and most challenging
battles. Joining the council during the
height of the recession, Lim noted fiscal
prudence and tough budgetary decisions
were necessary. Then there was the controversial 7-Eleven debacle that led to an audit
and revamping of the citys Community
Development Department; the ongoing
contentious proposal by owners of the
Bridgepointe Shopping Center to demolish
the communitys beloved ice rink; and of
course, the heated debate over rent control
that ultimately landed on last years ballot.
A strong advocate for social justice
issues, Lim said hes worked to remain
transparent about his views while on the
council. Although he received grief from
some for supporting the failed citizens initiative to enact tenant protections, he
emphasized it had no bearing on his decision to step down.
It was an emotional issue for a lot of people, Lim said. There was tension, but the
thing Im most proud of is I kept an open
line of communication and I was always
honest with people.
Moving forward in his last year, Lim said
hes thrilled to again serve as mayor and
this time hes really going to have some
fun because Im not worried about re-election.
Translation: bring on the ribbon cuttings

and speeches. But he also gave more solemn


advice to future leaders.
What Ive learned in my last eight years
is that you have to listen, Lim said.
People always look to a councilmember for
ideas, but I think the real strength is to listen quietly, respectfully and actively, even
if you dont like what theyre saying.
Another key, albeit perhaps obvious tip,
is to thoroughly read agenda packets, he
said. It requires a lot of time but is vital as
councilmembers have a lasting effect rule a
variety of issues from the mundane to the
controversial, he said.
His colleagues can sympathize with the
commitment it takes. Councilwoman
Maureen Freschet, whos served the longest
with the man she calls a friend, said there
will be a void without Lim but shes grateful
for his years of leadership and devotion.
Few people understand the time demands
and personal sacrifice required of these positions, and I fully understand and respect his
need to focus on his young family at this
important time in their lives, Freschet
wrote in an email. David has left an indelible mark on San Mateo and has set a high
bar for his successor. We are fortunate to
have emerging community leaders with the
education, vision and business experience
we will need to shape San Mateos future.
Anna Khure, president emeritus of the San
Mateo United Homeowners Association,

PG&E

comment as he pushed back his final
sentencing decision, saying he needed
more time to consider comments by
attorneys for the government and
PG&E.
Hendersons move followed a
lengthy hearing that included emotional testimony from three victims of the
2010 explosion of a PG&E natural gas
pipeline that killed eight people and
destroyed 38 homes in San Bruno.
The loss of my loved ones, my personal belongings, my neighborhood,
my life happened due to the negligence
of a greedy company that put profits
ahead of safety, said Sue Bullis, 56,
who lost her husband, son and motherin-law in the explosion.
She was hopeful the sentence would
lead to changes at PG&E.
Henderson postponed his final decision on sentencing until Thursday.
The sentence will close one of the
final chapters in the legal and regulatory fallout from the San Bruno blast.
California regulators have previous-

said Lims youthfulness and responsiveness


to the community made him an ideal leader.
Even in his departure he was mindful of others, as giving ample notice allows the next
leaders to ready themselves for a campaign,
Khure said.
We can only thank him for what must
have been a very difficult decision and for
his service, Khure said. Moving forward
we want to attract as many young leaders as
we can to our council because the future
belongs to them and their children.
Lim noted city leaders will undoubtedly be
tasked with the difficult challenge of balancing the impacts of growth and traffic. On
issues of great import, he urged the council
to remember decisions must not be made
solely by a body of five, but with the community as whole.
For him, it was addressing problems
even the small ones of a single homeowner or a blossoming business owner with language barriers that made the job worthwhile.
Its the fact that you can do good work,
you can make a difference. And to me, its
not necessarily on just the larger issues. Its
the little things, he said. Every time you
get a little tired or come home late, if youre
able to solve a problem that keeps them in
business or makes their quality of life better, these are the things that keep you
going.

ly fined PG&E $1.6 billion for the


explosion, and the company has spent
hundreds of millions of dollars settling
lawsuits by victims.
Julie Kane, a PG&E executive, apologized Monday in court to the victims
and said the company was committed to
safety.
We are profoundly sorry, she said.
PG&E is prepared to pay the maximum $3 million fine it faces and has
agreed to a monitor to oversee it as part
of any sentence, said Steven Bauer, an
attorney for the company.
However, he asked Henderson to set a
time limit on the requirement involving ads and link the messages to
improved safety.
Prosecutor Hartley West said she
wanted to make sure PG&E isnt able to
get out of the advertising requirement
through a carefully worded ad that
avoids using the term safety.
Prosecutors have also asked
Henderson to restructure PG&Es bonus
program for employees a sentencing
requirement PG&E opposes.
Jurors convicted the company in
August of five of 11 counts of pipeline
safety violations, including failing to
gather information to evaluate potential gas pipeline threats and deliberate-

ly not classifying a gas line as high


risk. Prosecutors said the company
deliberately misclassified pipelines so
it wouldnt have to subject them to
appropriate testing, choosing a cheaper method to save money.
Jurors also convicted the utility of
obstructing investigators after the
blast.
PG&E attorneys said during trial that
the companys engineers did not think
the pipelines posed a safety risk, and
the company did not intend to mislead
investigators.
The stakes in the case dropped dramatically, however, when prosecutors
made the surprising decision several
days into jury deliberations not to pursue a potential $562 million fine if
PG&E was found guilty of any of the
pipeline safety counts. No PG&E
employees were charged, so no one is
facing prison time.
Henderson said Monday that requiring PG&E to mention its pipeline convictions in any publicity about its
commitment to safety seems an
appropriate punishment and deterrent. He said he was inclined to require
10,000 hours of community service,
with 2,000 of those performed by
high-level PG&E personnel.

Appeals court to decide future of California carbon auctions


By Jonathan J. Cooper
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO Businesses looking to


invalidate Californias fee for carbon pollution take their arguments to a state appeals
court Tuesday in a case that could determine
the future of one of Californias signature
efforts to combat climate change.
With a central piece of Gov. Jerry Browns
legacy on the line, lawyers for the state and
for environmental advocacy groups will
defend a program that has been closely
watched around the world as a potential model

process driving their projects, which have
ranged from models of furniture to video
production.
And staff see a unique opportunity for the
library to foster new learning opportunities, convening makers of all ages.
One thing libraries have always been
about is learning, said Anne-Marie
Despain, director of library services.
Despain is excited to work with community members as co-creators in the process of
imagining dedicated maker spaces across all
12 libraries she oversees. To brainstorm
ideas from a group already teeming with creative ideas, she has enlisted the help of
Gyroscope, Inc., a group with success in

Impact: High. However the issue is handled, it will be taken as a sign of Trumps
intentions.

BIRTH CONTROL COVERAGE


Under the health care law, women receive
birth control at no additional cost as a preventive benefit. Houses of worship are
exempt from the requirement, but women
employees of church-affiliated nonprofits
are covered. The new administration could

for controlling carbon


emissions.
Uncertainty surrounding the case has already
been a major factor in
upending the market for
pollution permits, which
consistently raised hundreds of millions of dolJerry Brown lars a year until demand
plummeted in 2016.
The courtroom battle comes as Californias
climate initiatives, some of the most aggressive in the world, face their biggest threat yet

from a new president, Donald Trump, who has


vowed to loosen environmental regulations.
Californias cap-and-trade program is a
central piece of a wide-ranging series of regulations meant to reduce the emissions of heattrapping gases. The state places a limit on
emissions and reduces the cap over time.
Permits to pollute, known as allowances, are
auctioned quarterly to affected companies or
to investors, who can hold onto them for
future sale to polluting companies that
exceed their emissions cap.
Auction revenue is a key funding source for
a high-speed rail project seeking to link Los

Angeles and San Francisco by train. It also


generates billions for transit construction
and energy conservation efforts.
California and the Canadian province of
Quebec, which have linked their cap-andtrade auctions, operate the worlds only economy-wide limit on emissions, said Alex
Jackson, an attorney for the Natural
Resources Defense Council, which is defending the program.
For a jurisdiction as large as California,
thats not small potatoes, Jackson said.
This lawsuit strikes at the heart of how this
program is operated.

designing learning spaces for museums and


other libraries.
Steve Tornallyay, Gyroscopes director of
creative growth strategies, led some 50
community members through Wednesdays
community
engagement
meeting.
Tornallyay has worked on other co-creation
projects such as the San Jose Public
Librarys TeenHQ space, which was codeveloped with teens looking for hands-on
learning opportunities at their library. For
Tornallyay, what excites him about codesigning maker spaces in San Mateo
County libraries is the challenge of finding
engaging solutions that will work across all
12 libraries.
Were trying to balance the countywide
approach with keeping libraries unique to
patrons, he said.
The patrons attending Wednesdays meeting demonstrated the challenge and opportunity that lies before Tornallyay and

library staff, citing a wide variety of uses for


maker resources currently offered at the
libraries. A grandfather described creating a
name plaque with his granddaughter using a
3-D printer at the library, allowing him to
learn more about 3-D printers and his granddaughter to use a keyboard and mouse for the
first time. Others described projects where
they made simple instruments to teach
younger students about physics, or created
missing parts to machines with a 3-D printer.
For Kim, the variety of ideas makers
bring to libraries, combined with the diversity in the size and structure of the libraries
themselves, means they are not trying to
develop defined physical maker spaces for
each library, but rather overall strategies for
making maker resources available to all
patrons.
We have communities of different sizes,
and libraries of different sizes, she said.

Kim said redesigning existing space and


revamping current maker programing and
resources are options that might fit existing
libraries. Libraries currently under construction, such as the Half Moon Bay or
Brisbane libraries, may include physical
maker spaces in their construction plans.
Kim said that a mobile maker space is an
option that has been discussed to possibly
serve locations limited in their ability to
make changes to their physical spaces.
Library staff are hoping to gather input
from the community in the coming months,
and to develop a master plan for maker
spaces by the end of May. For Kim, the
opportunities to expand cross-sectional
learning cant come quickly enough for a
county ready to co-create.
We want to hear from people of all backgrounds, to get a better understanding of the
digital divide, she said. How can maker
spaces help people bridge that divide?

rewrite the rules for nonprofits, or it could


try to void the birth control requirement
altogether.
Likelihood: An attempt to revise the rules
for religious-affiliated nonprofits seems
possible; a broader effort to void birth control coverage would be difficult.
Impact: Depends on the scope. Taking
away a benefit for most women covered by
workplace plans could provoke a backlash.

care funding, provided they cover about as


many people and dont add to the deficit.
The Trump administration could rewrite the
Obama administrations guidance for states,
making it less restrictive.
They can do a lot by adopting a different
attitude, said economist Gail Wilensky,
who ran Medicare for former President
George H.W. Bush.

Likelihood: High. The Trump administration is also signaling flexibility on other


red-state demands, such as work requirements for some low-income Medicaid recipients.
Impact: Uncertain. It would require major
commitment and planning on the part of
states.

MILLBRAE A
new beginning for a
New Year.
How
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.
The
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.

funeral matters or want to make preplanning arrangements please feel free to

RENTERS
Continued from page 1
their homes once inspectors deem
them uninhabitable and now officials
are hoping this new rule will entice
landlords to maintain units or share in
the burden. Landlords could face having to pay thousands of dollars to a
tenant who must permanently leave
their home through no fault of their
own.
We believe firmly that people
shouldnt have to risk their lives to
have a roof over their head. And we
have in the past run into some situations where people were living in such
dangerous situations and we had to red
tag the residence. In the past we would
try to help those people and try to
house them and it would be on the taxpayers dime to do that, said Assistant
County Manager Mike Callagy. We
believe that if someone has illegally
or unsafely rented a unit thats unfit,
they should be financially responsible
to those that have been displaced.
The amount a landlord has to pay
would be based on whether a tenant is
permanently or temporarily displaced.
For a landlord whose property cannot
be brought up to code or made safe
within 90 days, they would have to
provide three months fair-market rent
for a similar-sized unit, and up to
$1, 000 in moving expenses.
Depending on the size of the rental,
landlords could be on the hook for
nearly $10,000 as this year the average two-bedroom in San Mateo County
goes for $3,018, according to a county
staff report citing data from the U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban
Development.
For renters who are temporarily displaced and their homes can be brought
up to reoccupancy within three
months, they are entitled to have the
landlord reimburse them for reasonable
associated costs meaning the property owner could be liable for paying
temporary housing costs or hotel
stays as well as moving expenses,
Callagy said.
In cases where the landlord doesnt
or cannot pay, the county may step in
to provide the tenant with assistance

recent weeks, as Burlingame officials recently discussed allowing
development of such a facility at the

then seek reimbursement from the


property owner. The proposed ordinance would only apply to rental units
in unincorporated parts of the county,
but other cities may be inspired to
adopt similar provisions.
County staff worked with stakeholders such as legal aid, the San Mateo
County Association of Realtors and
the California Apartment Association
to craft a reasonable rule targeting the
most egregious circumstances. For
example, a landlord isnt on the hook
if a tenant caused the code violations.
The rule generally only applies to tenants who are forced to leave due to lifesafety issues such as no emergency
exits or dangerously exposed electrical
wires, Callagy said.
Its not that were running into a lot
of these, but we certainly want to create a disincentive to things that as a
society we just cant accept, Callagy
said.
Board of Supervisors President Don
Horsley said the ordinance is part of a
varied approach to addressing the
regional housing crisis.
Weve actually paid a lot more
attention now to code enforcement
because we know what happens is
when people are getting squeezed and
rents are going up, theyre doubling
up, tripling up and sometimes finding
themselves in places that are unsafe,
Horsley said.
San Mateo Countys former sheriff,
Horsley recalled cases while in uniform during which hed wished there
were other options for helping people
living in hazardous conditions.
We used to see things like people
living in garages with electric cords
strung across the ceiling and I never
knew what I could do because if you end
up displacing them, whats going to
happen to them? Thats one of the reasons I ran for the board [of supervisors], so I could do something about
citys Bayshore driving range.
The Burlingame City Council ultimately elected to hold off on making a
final decision regarding the ice rink
proposal, in favor of collecting more
information about the variety of competing proposals for the property.
Ice rink advocates have also
expressed interest in Millbrae officials
building an ice rink as part of an effort
to rebuild the citys Community
Center, which was demolished this

those situations. People should not


live in places that arent safe,
Horsley said.
He emphasized the ordinance aims to
address the extremely unsafe code violations and noted there is some flexibility with the landlord able to appeal
an order or request a hearing.
Representatives with the San Mateo
County Association of Realtors
expressed support for the ordinance
that county staff presented to them
several months ago.
We feel strongly that no one in San
Mateo County should be paying rent
to live in dangerous and uninhabitable
conditions. Stories of entire families
living in backyard sheds are sad and
incredibly disturbing, SAMCARs
Government Affairs Director Gina Zari
said in an email. We support the county in taking steps to protect those
whose health and safety are at risk due
to deplorable conditions.
Other cities that have similar provisions include Redwood City, East Palo
Alto, San Diego, Oakland and Berkley,
Callagy noted.
With the recent deadly Ghost Ship
fire where dozens died in an Oakland
warehouse that had illegally been converted to residences and hosted parties,
Horsley said many are acutely aware of
the dangers posed by unsafe buildings.
In an effort to discourage illegal or
unsafe residences, he pointed to the
countys recent move to promote secondary units. As part of supervisors
effort to ease the bureaucracy around
constructing in-laws, the county is
considering an amnesty program for
unpermitted units. If approved, those
who have existing illegal second units
can apply to have them permitted.
Owners wouldnt face penalties and the
county would work with them to ensure
the properties meet or are brought up
to health and safety codes.
Were trying every possible way to
be able to sustain our community to
make sure we arent displacing people, Horsley said. And that at the
same time, were providing for their
safety as well.
