City plants seeds for more farmersmarkets

By Michelle Durand

Several farmers markets could sprout up in Redwood City by the spring, adding to the existing eld with events on the other side of the highway, at night or coordinated with happenings at Courthouse Square.

Redwood City isnt necessarily seeking multiple new providers but efforts to update an existing agreement with the Kiwanis Club for its current market has generated wider interest. Although proposals arent due until next month, both the Rotary Club and West Coast Farmers Market Association have

expressed interest at setting up shop on city property, said city spokesman Malcolm Smith. The citys agreement with the Kiwanis has not been updated since 1999, a fact discovered when another group contacted the city about possibly opening a new market, Smith said.

The Kiwanis operate the market at the Winslow Avenue parking lot behind Sequoia Station from 8 a.m. to noon Saturdays. The market, a staple for more than 30 years, runs from April to November. When the city was asked to consider a different location for another outt, Smith said staff realized it

was time to start fresh with a modernized request for proposals for the Kiwanis and any other interested group. It was so far out of date and didnt include the stuff we wanted, Smith said.

Belmont ends artists lease

By Bill Silverfarb

Failed lease negotiations between Belmont ofcials and the 1870 Artist Corporation, a collective that occupies much of the Barrett Community Center on Ralston Avenue, will likely send the artists scrambling for other studio space as the city looks to generate more revenue from the old school site. Jonathan Gervais, the citys Parks and Recreation director, sent a notice of lease termination to the group last week after trying to negotiate new terms for more than seven months. We were very close. We were close to a signed agreement with the corporation, Gervais said. Staff rewrote the terms of the lease several times during negotiations to try and accommodate the artists, Gervais said, but the corporation rejected the citys nal offer. The lease ofcially expired in 2008. Moving forward, the city will no longer negotiate with the nonprot corporation, choosing instead to negotiate with the artists individually. The City Council previously directed staff to look at

Working to meet a tight deadline, the Burlingame City Council approved new rules on installing wireless communication devices Monday night just hours before a moratorium on them ended. The city temporarily banned new wireless communication boxes and antennas in September to allow time for the discussion of possible rules by the Wireless Telecommunications Working Group. With it set to expire

Tuesday, the City Council approved new rules less than two hours before the ban was lifted. Under the urgency ordinance, which will be revisited by the council in February, the city favors placing antennas in commercial areas and camouaging the devices. Councilman Michael Brownrigg applauded Burlingame residents and industry ofcials for stepping up to help with the legislative process and meet the deadline. The city needed to move quickly with the moratorium ending and a

Thought for the Day

Borrow trouble for yourself,if thats your nature,but dont lend it to your neighbours.
Rudyard Kipling,British author and poet (born 1865,died this date in 1936).

This Day in History


The 10th president of the United States, John Tyler, died in Richmond, Va., at age 71, shortly before he could take his seat as an elected member of the Confederate Congress.

In 1778, English navigator James Cook reached the presentday Hawaiian Islands, which he named the Sandwich Islands. In 1871, William I of Prussia was proclaimed German emperor in Versailles (vehr-SY), France. In 1911, the rst landing of an aircraft on a ship took place as pilot Eugene B. Ely brought his Curtiss biplane in for a safe landing on the deck of the armored cruiser USS Pennsylvania in San Francisco Harbor. In 1919, the Paris Peace Conference, held to negotiate peace treaties ending World War I, opened in Versailles (vehr-SY), France. In 1943, during World War II, the Soviets announced theyd broken through the long Nazi siege of Leningrad. (It was another year before the siege was fully lifted.) A wartime ban on the sale of pre-sliced bread in the U.S. aimed at reducing bakeries demand for metal replacement parts went into effect. In 1949, Charles Ponzi, engineer of one of the most spectacular swindles in history, died destitute at a hospital in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, at age 66. In 1952, Jerome Curly Howard of Three Stooges fame died in San Gabriel, Calif., at age 48. In 1957, a trio of B-52s completed the rst non-stop, roundthe-world ight by jet planes, landing at March Air Force Base in California after more than 45 hours aloft. In 1967, Albert DeSalvo, who claimed to be the Boston Strangler, was convicted in Cambridge, Mass., of armed robbery, assault and sex offenses. (Sentenced to life, DeSalvo was killed in prison in 1973.)

The rst Pyrex product was a pie dish that sold for 69 cents. *** The rst English woman to swim the English Channel was Mercedes Gleitze (1900-1981). During the 10-hour swim, Gleitze wore something that soon became popular. Do you know what it was? See answer at end. *** Introduced in 1925, Kleenex was intended to be a disposable cleansing tissue for removing cold cream. However, people soon began using the tissue in place of a handkerchief and a new product, the facial tissue, became popular. *** Netix, founded in 1997, was the rst company that allowed people to rent DVD movies through the Internet and receive them by mail, with no set return date or late fees. The founder of Netix had the idea for the business when he had to pay a ne of $40 after returning an overdue videotape of the lm Apollo 13 (1995). *** The vertical creases between eyebrows are called glabellar lines. To reduce those wrinkles, and other facial wrinkles, there is a procedure called Botox Cosmetic.

It is a rotating card index with removable cards to sort names and phone numbers. The name Rolodex comes from a combination of the words rolling and index. *** Borax is a naturally occurring mineral that can be used as a general purpose cleaner. Large borax deposits was discovered in Death Valley, Calif. in the 1880s. It used to be moved by teams of 20 mules from out of the valley to the railways. Borates were a household staple when a brand of cleaner called 20 Mule Team Borax was introduced. The product was, and still is, a laundry booster and household cleaner. *** Answer: Gleitze wore a Rolex watch. It was the rst waterproof watch, called the Oyster, created in 1926. Gleitze had made the historical swim on the English Channel in October 1927 but there was no proof. Later that month, she swam the channel again, amid much publicity. Rolex recognized a great opportunity to showcase their new watch, and Rolex earned a reputation for quality.

An 18-year-old convicted of stabbing two female classmates who accused him of stealing a cellphone at a Daly City McDonalds was sentenced yesterday to five years in prison for felony assault that his attorney said was extreme self-defense. Horacio Gonzalezs imposed term was suspended on the condition he complete four years of supervised probation, serve a year in county jail for which he has just shy of two years credit and stay away from his victims and the restaurant at Geneva Avenue and Rio Verde Street, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti. Gonzalez was originally charged with attempted murder but in October pleaded no contest to two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and causing great bodily injury in return for no more than eight years in prison. He also now faces a third strike if he is ever

convicted again, said defense attorney Eric Liberman. He has an opportunity here and I think everybody can only hope he takes it, Liberman said. Although Gonzalez was 17 at the time of the incident, prosecutors charged Horacio him as an adult and hes Gonzalez been in custody without bail since his September 2011 arrest. Prosecutors said three girls Gonzalez knew from Thurgood Marshall High School in San Francisco accused him and a friend of taken a cellphone from a purse when they were hanging out at Silver Terrace Park. Later that same day, Sept. 24, they encountered each other again at the McDonalds in Daly City where prosecutors say an argument between the two groups ended with him pulling a knife to stab one girl twice and another once. the ninth of the month to the 15th of the month. A meeting will take place in San Mateo County 6 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 25, Caltrain Administrative Ofce, 1250 San Carlos Ave., San Carlos. Comments also can be emailed to; sent by regular mail to District Secretary, Caltrain, P.O. Box 3006, San Carlos, CA 94070; or telephoned to 1.800.660.4287 (TDD for hearing impaired only 650.508.6448).

But Liberman said Gonzalez had brought a kitchen knife to meet up with the group out of fear because they had been threatening him. Once there, Gonzalez was punched in the face and jumped on by another girl before he began swinging the weapon, Liberman said. This was not an unprovoked attack ... He exercised his right to self-defense but the problem is he brought a knife to a st ght and used too much self-defense, Liberman said. When Gonzalez was arrested a short time later, police say he threatened the third girl in front of them as she identied him as the attacker. Liberman said his client is very relieved he will not be imprisoned. He was petried by the thought, quite frankly, he said.

Bay Bridges upper deck to close over Presidents Day weekend

The upper deck of the Bay Bridge will be closed over Presidents Day weekend to make way for construction, bridge officials announced Tuesday. The weather-dependent closure will allow

crews to create a detour that bridge ofcials say will enable the bridges new eastern span to open to trafc months ahead of schedule. The upper deck, which carries westbound trafc, will be closed from 8 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 17, to 5 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 21, bridge ofcials announced Tuesday.

Wednesday Jan. 18, 2012

Last week, the San Carlos school board appointed two new trustees Carol Elliott and Kathleen Farley to ll two seats left vacant after the November election. On Wednesday, the women will be sworn in to join the board. The board meets 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18 at the Central Middle School library, 828 Chestnut St., San Carlos. On Wednesday, the Redwood City Elementary School District Board of Trustees will discuss results of a community parcel tax survey. In December, the council voted to enter into a contract with Godbe Research to survey the community about a possible parcel tax. Such a measure would provide funding to support programs. Most recently, Godbe conducted a survey for the district in December 2010. Since then, the district put together a Parcel Tax Feasibility Community Committee, which met in January, comprised of a cross section of community members to analyze poll data and discuss other issues that could impact an election. As a result, Godbe and the committee presented the information to the school board recommending the district wait to move forward with an election. Time would allow for more community outreach, according to a staff report. Since then the committee has continued to meet and formed an organization called The Redwood City Community for Better Schools. The group has continued outreach to possible campaign volunteers and raised $30,000 in donations to support the effort, according to a staff report. In addition, the group requested the board poll the community again in January 2012. The board meets 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18 at the District Office, 750 Bradford St., Redwood City. On Wednesday, the Sequoia Union High School District Board of Trustees will discuss changing the physical education policy and administrative regulation. Central to the conversation, which previously was brought up prior to the seating of the newly-elected trustees, was whether students should be offered physical education credit for participating in on-campus sports only or if students can apply to be exempted for participating in off-campus and individual sports as well. The board meets 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18 at the District Ofce, 480 James Ave., Redwood City.

Man shot partiers in self-defense

By Chris Cooney

REDWOOD CITY A defense attorney for a Foster City man who shot and wounded two men outside a lagoon-front apartment in 2010 said the defendant was acting in selfdefense when a confrontation over noise became violent. Jesse David Wilson, 41, is on trial in San Mateo County Superior Court for two counts of attempted murder and ve counts of assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the July 9, 2010 shooting, which took place outside the Beach Cove Apartments just after midnight. Defense attorney William Locke said in his opening statement that Wilson grabbed a .38 caliber handgun from under his bed after hearing a party of ve apparently intoxicated people get into a heated argument with Wilsons neighbor over noise they were making in the lagoon. The two men and three women in the party had been at a concert in Foster City, where they drank alcohol and smoked marijuana, Deputy District Attorney Brian Donnellan said.

After the concert, the ve decided to go boating in a lagoon just feet from Wilsons apartment. A kayak containing three of the revelers overturned, causing them to scream and disturb residents in the apartment complex, Donnellan said. Jesse Wilson One of the residents Wilsons neighbor was chased back into his apartment under a barrage of racial slurs when he came out and asked the boaters to quiet down, Locke said. Wilson heard the argument, armed himself and came out of his apartment to assess the situation, Locke said. When he did, he got into a heated exchange with two of the men in the party, causing him to raise his gun into the air and then aim it at the ve people, Locke said. What are you going to do? Shoot me? one of the men reportedly asked before charging Wilson and punching him in the face, Locke said. During the struggle, Wilson red the gun in the direction of the second man in the party

and struck him in the back, puncturing his lung. Wilson then red a second time, and shot the man attacking him in the abdomen. Deputy District Attorney Brian Donnellan called the case an assessment of credibility and argued that Wilson shot at least one of the two men before they started to beat him up. Prosecutors allege that Wilson was belligerent when he came out of his apartment and confronted the partiers, and that they only hit him in an attempt to disarm him. One of the men eventually managed to take Wilsons gun from him, but continued to beat and kick him until police came, Locke said. One of the women in the party also joined in kicking Wilson, who was beaten to the ground after the shooting, Locke said. Both shooting victims were taken to Stanford Medical Center and survived their wounds. Wilson suffered a broken orbital bone which required surgery and several cuts and bruises. The prosecutions rst witnesses began testimony Tuesday morning. Wilson remains out of custody on $500,000 bail.

Documents: S.F.sheriff mistreated wife twice

By Terry Collins

SAN FRANCISCO New court documents led Tuesday allege San Franciscos recently elected sheriff mistreated his wife on two separate occasions last year, and told her he would attempt to gain custody of their young son because he was very powerful. Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi (meer-kah-REEMee) was charged Friday with one count each of domestic violence battery, child endangerment and dissuading a witness. Prosecutors say those charges are related to a New Years Eve incident with his wife. An arrest warrant afdavit prepared by police

alleges that Mirkarimis wife Eliana Lopez appeared in a Jan. 1 videotape in which she discussed details about that confrontation and another incident earlier last year. In the footage shot by a neighbor, Ivory Madison, Ross Mirkarimi Lopez is crying and visibly upset about the couples run-in the day before. Lopez points to a bruise on her right bicep where she said Mirkarimi grabbed her, according to the afdavit. This happened yesterday, Lopez tells the camera, according to the afdavit.

The rooftops of One, Two, Three and Four Embarcadero Center will glow red starting this evening and will be lit red each night leading up to

2011, and this is the second time this is happening. I told Ross I want to work on the marriage we need help, Lopez continues, according to the document. I (have) been telling him we need help, and Im going to use this just in case he wants to take Theo away from me because he ... said that he is very powerful and he can do it. Lopez, a former Venezuelan telenovela star, married Mirkarimi after having their rst child in 2009. The 50-year-old former county supervisor is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday morning and has vowed to remain in ofce while he ghts the charges. Mirkarimi was booked at San Francisco County Jail, but released on $35,000 bail. the playoff game this Sunday, when the 49ers host the New York Giants and perhaps all the way to the Super Bowl, Embarcadero Center ofcials said.

Judge to end prison receivership

By Don Thompson

SACRAMENTO A federal judge on Tuesday ordered California ofcials to prepare for the end of a six-year, court-ordered oversight of the prison system that has cost taxpayers billions of dollars and helped force a shift of lower-level criminals from state prisons to county jails. U.S. District Court Judge Thelton Henderson cited improving conditions in the prison system in a three-page order that says the end of the Receivership appears to be in sight. The ruling marks an important milestone in a process that began nearly six years ago when the judge appointed a receiver to run Californias prison medical system after nding that an average of one inmate a week was dying of neglect or malpractice. He cited inmate overcrowding as the leading cause, but

said in Tuesdays order that conditions have improved. He praised the better conditions throughout the system, particularly noted during inspections of medical facilities by the prison systems independent inspector general. Significant progress has been made, Henderson wrote, citing the receivers own report to the federal court last week. While some critical work remains outstanding most notably on construction issues it is clear that many of the goals of the Receivership have been accomplished. Gov. Jerry Browns ofce issued a statement to The Associated Press, with the Democratic governor praising the decision. We have been working very hard to clean up the mess in the prisons and I appreciate the judicial recognition of our efforts, he said in the statement. Don Specter, director of the nonprofit Prison Law Ofce, said it is premature to end

the receivership, although he said it is reasonable to start thinking about it. Conditions have been improving but still are nowhere near adequate at many of the prison medical facilities, said Specter, whose group brought the lawsuit against the state. Moreover, the state has yet to nish building some of the facilities required by the receiver, and the judge has yet to decide what standards the prison system must meet to provide constitutionally adequate medical care, Specter said. I understand the governor really wants to end the receivership, he said. Having a light at the end of the tunnel might even spur them to make more progress or faster progress, to act quicker or sooner. J. Clark Kelso, who took over as receiver in January 2008, looks forward to participating in the talks with state ofcials but declined further comment, said his spokeswoman, Nancy Kincaid.

FRESNO The four family members involved in an apparent murder-suicide at a Central California apartment all died from a single gunshot wound to the head, according to preliminary autopsy results released Tuesday. The woman who shot her two children, their father and a cousin before committing suicide took video of herself on her iPad as she smoked methamphetamine prior to the killings, authorities said.

The childrens father and only survivor, Eduardo Lopez, 33, remains hospitalized in serious condition, said Mary Lisa Russell, spokeswoman for Community Regional Medical Center. Lopez was inside the Fresno apartment arguing with his girlfriend, Aide Mendez, 23, when she began her attack Sunday, police said. Police arrived to nd Lopez outside the Silver Lakes Apartment with knife and gunshot wounds, said Lt. Mark Salazar, homicide commander for the Fresno Police Department. Ofcers heard a mufed shot from inside the first-floor apartment and discovered ing in the elds that have water or wind machines, but the others well have to evaluate. Oranges begin to suffer at about 28 degrees. Thonesen said his mandarin elds are in a pocket where temperatures dipped below the critical mark. It will be a week before we see what damage there may or may not be, he said.

Mendez had killed herself, her boyfriends cousin, Paul Medina, 27, as well as her two children, 17-month-old Aliyah Echeverria and Isaiah Echeverria, 3. A 7-year-old neighbor girl who was in the apartment escaped unharmed. Police told The Fresno Bee that Mendez was found in the bathroom, and the children were found in the apartments bathtub. Drugs played a role in the killing, Salazar said, but investigators are still trying to determine to what extent. Other drugs besides meth may also have been involved, he said. A toxicology report wont be available for several days, said Coroner Dr. David Hadden. High Desert State Prison in Susanville, the Lassen County Sheriffs Department said. Herzog was in the middle of a erce debate over his residence and the target of a lawsuit seeking his banishment from the remote northeast California county. Herzog was at the beginning of a 78-year prison sentence for three murder convictions when an appeals court in 2004 ruled investigators illegally coerced his confession. Without the confession, prosecutors said they were left little evidence and had no choice but to offer Herzog a deal to plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter for the killing of Cyndi Vanderheiden, 25. His 78year prison sentence was reduced to 14 years and he was released on parole in September 2010 after serving 11 years.

The National Weather Service said temperatures dropped to as low as 19 degrees in some regions early Tuesday. It forced orange farmers to re up wind machines and ood groves with water to keep bitter cold air from settling.

WASHINGTON The expansion in public prekindergarten programs has slowed and even been reversed in some states as school districts cope with shrinking budgets. As a result, many 3- and 4-year-olds arent going to preschool. Kids from low-income families who start kindergarten without rst attending a quality education program enter school an estimated 18 months behind their peers. Many never catch up, and research shows they are more likely to need special education services and to drop out. Kids in families with higher incomes also can benet from early education, research shows. Yet, roughly a quarter of the nations 4-yearolds and more than half of 3-year-olds attend no preschool, either public or private. Families who earn about $40,000 to $50,000 annually face the greatest difficulties because they make too much to quality for many publicly funded programs, but cant afford private ones, said Steven Barnett, director of the National Institute for Early Education Research at Rutgers University. And as more students qualify for free or reduced lunch often a qualier to get into a state-funded prekindergarten program many families are nding that slots simply arent available, he said. In Arizona, a block grant that funded prekindergarten for a small percentage of kids was cut altogether, although a separate public fund still supports some programs. In Georgia, a drop in state lottery dollars meant shaving 20 days off the prekindergarten school year. Proposed cuts in such programs have led to litigation in North Carolina and legislative battles in places like Iowa. But even in states like New York, where state funding available for prekindergarten has remained relatively steady in recent years, fewer children have access to the programs because ination has made them more expensive or districts cant come up with the required matching dollars, said Billy Easton, executive director of the Alliance for Quality Education in Albany, N.Y. Todays climate contrasts with that of 2007, when then-New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer promised universal, public prekindergarten for all 4-year-olds. Other governors made similar commitments when the economy was stronger.

Romney says he pays taxes about 15 percent

By Kasie Hunt

FLORENCE, S.C. His wealth and taxes suddenly a campaign focus, Mitt Romney said Tuesday he pays an effective federal tax rate of about 15 percent. Thats far less than if his earnings were wages rather than gains from investments and dividends, and the disclosure under pressure triggered a sharp response from the Democratic White House as well as one of his GOP presidential rivals. Romney told reporters he also received money from speechmaking before he

announced his presidential candidacy early last year but not very much. He provided no details, but in his financial disclosure statement, released last August, he reported being paid $374,327.62 for such appearances for the 12 ending last Mitt Romney months February. That amount alone would place his income among the top 1 percent of all Americans, and Romneys description of it as a relatively small

amount suggested his overall income was far higher. Its well known that Romneys father was the chairman and president of American Motors, and he himself was a successful businessman and founder of Bain Capital, a private equity rm, where he earned millions. At the same time, his refusal to release his tax returns has been a persistent issue, and one that ared anew in a debate Monday night in which he grudgingly said he might release them in April. On Tuesday, he said he would release at least one years returns in April. Republicans trying to defeat him in

Saturdays South Carolina primary are hoping hell make them public far sooner. The White House, which expects Romney to win the Republican nomination and take on President Barack Obama this year, reacted, too. Spokesman Jay Carney said: This only illuminates what (Obama) believes is an issue, which is that everybody whos working hard ought to pay their fair share. That includes millionaires who might be paying an effective tax rate of 15 percent when folks making $50,000 or $75,000 or $100,000 a year are paying much more.

Editors question Wikipedias planned blackout


Nation in brief
U.S. wants effective Alzheimers treatment by 2025
WASHINGTON The government is setting what it calls an ambitious goal for Alzheimers disease: Development of effective ways to treat and prevent the minddestroying illness by 2025. The Obama administration is developing the rst National Alzheimers Plan to nd better treatments for the disease and offer better dayto-day care for those aficted. A newly released draft of the overall goals for that plan sets the 2025 deadline, but doesnt provide details of how to fund the necessary research to meet that target date. Todays treatments only temporarily ease some dementia symptoms, and work to nd better ones has been frustratingly slow.

NEW YORK Can the world live without Wikipedia for a day? The planned shutdown of one of the Internets most-visited sites is not sitting well with some of its volunteer editors, who say the protest of anti-piracy legislation could threaten the credibility of their work. My main concern is that it puts the organization in the role of advocacy, and thats a slippery slope, said editor Robert Lawton, a Michigan computer consultant who would prefer that the encyclopedia stick to being a neutral repository of knowledge. Before we know it, were blacked out because we want to

save the whales. Wikipedia will shut down access to its English-language site for 24 hours beginning at midnight Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday. Instead of encyclopedia articles, visitors will see information about the two congressional bills and details about how to reach lawmakers. It is the rst time the English site has been blacked out. Wikipedias Italian site came down once briey in protest to an Internet censorship bill put forward by the Berlusconi government. The bill did not advance. The shutdown adds to a growing body of critics who are speaking out against the legislation. But some editors are so uneasy with the

move that they have blacked out their own user prole pages or resigned their administrative rights on the site to protest. Some likened the sites decision to ghting censorship with censorship. One of the sites own ve pillars of conduct says that Wikipedia is written from a neutral point of view. The site strives to avoid advocacy, and we characterize information and issues rather than debate them. Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales argues that the site can maintain neutrality in content even as it takes public positions on issues. The encyclopedia will always be neutral. The community need not be, not when the encyclopedia is threatened, he tweeted.

House GOP chair got discounted loan


WASHINGTON The House Republican campaign chairman, Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas, has been notied that he received a discounted mortgage from the former Countrywide Financial Corp. Sessions spokeswoman, Torrie Miller, conrmed that the congressman was told that records show he received the discounts through Countrywides VIP program. Sessions becomes the fourth House member and third Republican whose records were sent to the House Ethics Committee for further investigation. The ethics panel will likely investigate whether the lawmakers received improper gifts

and whether they performed any favorable actions for the lender. The four were notied by the House Oversight Committee. Two of the Republicans play prominent roles: Sessions, as the person responsible for Republican Pete Sessions efforts to maintain their House majority in the November elections and Rep. Howard Buck McKeon of California, who has major inuence over the defense budget as chairman of the Armed Services Committee. The others who received discounts are Rep.

Elton Gallegly, R-Calif., and Rep. Edolphus Towns, D-N.Y. All four denied that they were aware of receiving any sweetheart deals from Countrywide. Miller, the Sessions spokeswoman, said in a statement, Out of an abundance of caution in managing his personal nances, Congressman Sessions specically requested that he not be extended any special benets or treatment from Countrywide. Everything about his experience suggests that his simple request was honored and that he was treated like every other customer. Congressman Sessions welcomes providing any details requested by any House Committee about this loan, which no longer exists.

Obama tells jobs council of substantial progress

WASHINGTON President Barack Obama says his administration has made substantial progress in embracing outside ideas on how to solidify the economic recovery. In comments to his jobs council, Obama sought to show that the administration was taking seriously the recommendations of the broad panel of business leaders. He spoke of success in streamlining the permitting processes and cutting regulations. And he hailed his own attempt to get more power from Congress to shrink the cost of government.

New Years resolution?

By Art Kiesel

he coming of the new year brings a visualization of new beginnings a fresh start. Most of us look forward to a new year with the anticipation that times will be better and experiences will be pleasantly remembered. We all have the expectation that the year ahead will put and keep a smile on our face. As Foster City looks forward to a New Year, making sure that the city provides the services and amenities that the residents have come to expect started in earnest during the rst two weeks of the new year. January is the month that brings on the start of the budget season, which lasts until June when the next scal years budget is presented to the Foster City Council for approval. This year will be similar to the prior four in that we will be looking at revenue shortfalls forcing us to again look at reducing expenses with the ultimate goal of achieving a balanced budget by the scal year of 2013-14. Unlike other municipalities in the region struggling to make ends meet, we in Foster City do have much for which to be thankful. For starters, we have the nancial reserves to weather a sizable economic storm. We have not had to make those deep cuts that other municipalities have already made such as reducing emergency service personnel.

Guest perspective
On our revenue front, Gilead has broken ground on a new laboratory building on their campus. We will reap greater property taxes for the building upgrade. There will be more workers employed in this new building and the buildings Gilead has plans on constructing. These employees will help stimulate the Foster City economy with spending and increase property values by their desire to own homes. The Pilgrim-Triton project is well under way and will provide additional housing along with retail. Property taxes for the project will increase as will the spending that the new tenants will most certainly do. The 15-acre project is in the negotiating stages with Foster City Community Partners that will add senior housing along with some retail space and will also provide sustainable revenue to the city for the rst time. Foster Citys Measure P, the hotel tax, passed by an overwhelming majority which will add additional revenue while still keeping Foster City the lowest hotel tax on the peninsula. Congratulations to the voters for realizing the importance of this measure. Foster City is as well positioned to come out of this economic quagmire as any city. We actually have development projects under way in these economically depressed times. The largest hurdle we will confront is the

state of California. The state continues to spend more than it has and continues to pass costs down to the local levels. We do have some major hurdles ahead of us. On Dec. 29, 2011, the California Supreme Court ruled that redevelopment agencies are eliminated and the companion bill that would have allowed agencies to remain in operation as long as they made a payment to the state was struck down. It now appears that the state will not get all the money from redevelopment agency elimination that they expected and will have to look elsewhere to cover the gap. With the $19.6 million Foster City has at stake, local ofcials will be exploring ways to work with the state Legislature and all others concerned to address the full impacts of this decision. Redevelopment agency-sponsored projects have provided jobs for many in the trades in the past and the ending of the redevelopment agencies will hurt job recovery projects all over the state. Redevelopment agencies also provide funds to support affordable housing and without those funds, developers would have little reason to engage in housing development projects without a nancial subsidy. My New Years resolution for the city is the same as it has been for the past four years: make sure that Foster City residents receive the highest quality of service that our funds will allow. I hope your New Years resolution is a bit less challenging and much easier to achieve.
Art Kiesel is the mayor of Foster City. He can be reached at or by phone at 573-7359.

The Finish
t was the most amazing, sensational, dramatic, heart-rending ... exciting, thrilling nish in the history of ... OK, I know that was Joe Starkeys words to describe The Play during the 1982 Big Game, but the words would have worked just as well to describe the end of the San Francisco 49ers 36-32 victory over the New Orleans Saints Saturday to send our local team to the NFC Championship Game Sunday, which, because of the New York Giants 37-20 defeat of NFC top seed Green Bay Packers Sunday, will be at Candlestick Park. And what a game that will be. I, like every other 49ers fan who have been wanting a season like this one for years, are elated with the teams accomplishments this year. No one, I mean no one, expected this type of year. And if you say you did, youre lying. At this point, win or lose, its been amazing and there is a similar feeling of destiny like when the San Francisco Giants went all the way to the World Series. I know everyone has been saying that the throw from Alex Smith to Vernon Davis is the Catch 3 but I dont think it had the same magnitude of The Catch when Joe Montana threw in severe trafc over the arms of several Dallas Cowboys into the outstretched arms and ngertips of Dwight Clark in the 1981 NFC championship game. It was with that play that they became a team of destiny. The parallels will be more solidied if the 49ers continue on to the Super Bowl, win, and begin a new dynasty. For now, Smith to Davis to win the game is just an amazing cap to an amazing game. And that ending should not take away from Smiths scamper into the end zone before that either. That was equally impressive and even more surprising. The 49ers enjoyed a solid lead early in the game, so it cant be called the comeback. It was the nish and the fact that the 49ers could nish in, what coach Jim Harbaugh said, such a spectacular fashion. So lets call it, The Finish. Whatever you call it, playoff football has returned to San Francisco, and years of disappointment and anguish have been extinguished by the renewed excitement. So nish the Giants! *** The name of the new development that is taking the place of the former San Mateo Times building on South Amphlett Boulevard in San Mateo will be Arbor Rose. I kind of liked the idea of something like Newspaper Alley. Standard Pacific Homes is constructing a multi-family residential project and will soon have a temporary sales office with on-site parking to allow visitors to tour model homes. ... Speaking of the Times, did anyone notice in the newspapers latest incarnation as an edition of the San Jose Mercury News that the American Flag between the San Mateo and County Times in the name at the top of the paper was removed? Call it a sign of the times. *** Former Utah governor and presidential candidate Jon Huntsman was born in Redwood City in 1960. He grew up, however, in Salt Lake City. *** Update: A few weeks ago, I wrote how Toys R Us does take returns for items purchased more than 90 days prior even with a receipt aside from the two weeks following Christmas. A representative got back to me to say they are extending the time frame to allow for returns from baby registries beyond the 90-day limit and will take the time to review the new policy with employees at the San Mateo store.

Letters to the editor

Getting serious
Editor, During Iowas Republican presidential caucus, Mitt Romney won over Rick Santorum by only eight votes. Now if it were me personally, I would get excited. If I were Mitt Romney, I would be very nervous and worried. This is only exemplary of the fact that all of the faithful and loyal Republicans in this country are divided and searching for that one, unique individual that is going to help us with all of our current problems and issues (especially the budget and the large decit we are currently facing). Now I guess everyone is paying attention and taking this 2012 presidential race seriously because Mr. Rick Santorum pulled some magic and got some needed momentum. This attention is a good thing because I think we all need to start taking this election seriously to prevent Barack Obama and the Democratic Party from getting re-elected. Voting, however, is only part of the effort. We need to talk and communicate with each and every voter, spreading the message that the Republican candidate, whoever it might be, will still be a much better choice than our current president. We all need to do our part or we will end up with the same sad outcome as in 2008. total cost of building high-speed rail from San Francisco to Los Angeles, including San Diego and Sacramento lines, 1 million permanent jobs, 117 million riders per year, etc.) have all been exposed. Kill the project now, dont authorize hundreds of billions in new high-speed rail debt, or else prepare to be voted out.

Francisco A. Lopez Redwood City

Respect the voters will, or else

Editor, The recent SurveyUSA poll results from Jan. 12 about high-speed rail confirms recent Field and Probolsky polls stating that California voters overwhelmingly dont want limited taxpayer dollars spent on a new $98.5 billion to $118 billion high-speed rail train (especially with current cuts to K-12 kids, the mentally ill, seniors and others). Sacramento Democrats must listen to the voters and not authorize the sale of new high-speed rail bonds and loans or they will be voted out. Democrats can only ignore voters, in favor of their well-connected union supporters, for so long and polls show that that time has long past. The lies sold to the voters in November 2008 ($33 billion for the

Think about it
Editor, It seems rather strange that a person on Death Row, who is found guilty of a hideous crime, cannot be given a lethal injection as it is cruel and inhuman. On the other hand, a potential human being in the womb can be torn apart without anything for their pain, which can be felt at 20 weeks.

The Chinese government said earlier that its economy slowed less dramatically in the fourth quarter than analysts had expected. Theres so much money sitting in shortterm accounts and earning zero return that even a shred of good news can jolt the market higher, said David Kelly, chief market strategist with J.P. Morgan Funds.

Wells Fargo net rises on deposits,lending growth

By Eileen AJ Connelly

NEW YORK A steadier mortgage business, higher commercial lending and an increase in deposits lifted Wells Fargo & Co.s fourth-quarter prot by 20 percent. The San Francisco-based bank reported Tuesday that the amount of mortgages it wrote in the last three months of 2011 jumped 35 percent compared with the third quarter, to $120 billion. Overall loan balances rose to $769.6 billion, up 2 percent from a year ago. Wells Fargo, which is the largest consumer lender in the U.S., reported a 2 percent increase in commercial loans, to $5.6 billion, reecting both direct lending and the purchase of portfolios from other lenders. Most of that growth came from new business, Chief Financial Ofcer Tim Sloan said in an interview. Weve been seeing good opportunities to grow the commercial loan business for a long time, he said. We think theres a lot of

opportunity there, and we think it will continue. Commercial loans now make up 40 percent of Wells overall portfolio, helping to balance out its income and spread its risk. The bank also beneted as more of its customers paid their bills on time. Wells Fargo wrote off $2.6 billion in loans as uncollectible, including $2.17 billion in consumer loans. That was down from $3.84 billion last year, but did represent a slight increase from the third quarter. Thats something were going to watch, said Paul Miller, an analyst with FBR Capital Markets. While the gure shows gains from a year ago, he said, the improvements in overall credit quality slowed down considerably toward the end of the year, he said. Loans considered past due and likely to default ended the year at $25.6 billion, compared with $32.4 billion last year. The improvement in Wells Fargos loan portfolio allowed the bank to release $600 million from its reserves to cover uncollected loans. That money owed directly to the banks bottom line. down a $47.5 billion takeover offer from Microsoft Corp. in 2008.

Wells Fargos net income for the quarter rose to $4.11 billion, or 73 cents per share, compared with $3.41 billion, or 61 cents per share, in the year-ago period. Revenue slipped 4 percent to $20.61 billion from $21.49 billion a year earlier. Analysts, on average, were expecting prot of 72 cents per share, on total revenue of $20 billion, according to data provided by FactSet. The results contrasted with other major banks, particularly Citigroup Inc., which posted disappointing results early Tuesday. Citi and other large banks depend more heavily on Wall Street trading operations and overseas business, and were stung during the quarter by market volatility and the European debt crisis. Wells, whose business is concentrated in the U.S., beneted from the slowly improving domestic economy and a brighter consumer outlook. CFO Sloan said that Wells Fargo has minimal exposure to Europe about $14 billion, very little of which is sovereign debt. We just have a different kind of risk picture relative to our peers, Sloan said. European aesthetic that revolutionized the way Americans cook and helped brand the city as a place to enjoy the good life. The Sonoma City Council is weighing whether to pass new regulations for chain stores, the Press Democrat ( reported Tuesday. It will decide Wednesday whether to enact a moratorium on such businesses until a proposed ordinance is drafted. Sonoma Mayor Joanne Sanders is opposed to chain-store regulations and thinks it would be a loss to bar one of the most successful businesses in the United States from returning home.

SONOMA Cookware giant Williams-Sonoma wants to go home. But the $3 billion chain is facing opposition over a new store at the original downtown Sonoma site. Ninety-seven-year-old Chuck Williams opened his first store on Broadway in 1956. He introduced a

Obesity epidemic shows no hint of shrinking

By Lindsey Tanner

CHICAGO Americas obesity epidemic is proving to be as stubborn as those maddening love handles, and shows no sign of reversing course. More than one-third of adults and almost 17 percent of children were obese in 2009-2010, echoing results since 2003, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday. Its good that we didnt see increases. On the other hand, we didnt see any decreases in any group, said CDC researcher Cynthia Ogden. Early in the decade, slight increases were seen among white, black and Hispanic men, and among Hispanic and black women. These changes may be leveling off, but the authors said they found no indication that the prevalence of obesity is

declining in any group. In 2009-2010, more than 78 million adults and almost 13 million children aged 2-19 were obese, the CDC researchers reported. Those numbers are staggering, and while they havent increased in recent years, were plateauing at an unacceptably high prevalence rate, said Dr. David Ludwig, director of an obesity prevention center at Childrens Hospital Boston. He was not involved in the reports. The CDC reports summarize results of national health surveys in children and adults, which are conducted every two years. The nationally representative surveys include in-person weight and height measurements. The 2009-2010 reports involved nearly 6,000 adults and about 4,000 children, from infancy through age 19. The results were released online in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

in 2009-10, the percentage of obese children and adults remained virtually unchanged since 2003.
Dr. Elbert Huang, an associate professor of medicine at the University of Chicago who studies health care policy issues, said his research shows rates continue there will be down the road that even if obesity to remain stable, dramatic increases in diabetes and in

costs linked with that disease. Thats because Type 2 diabetes, among many diseases linked with obesity, becomes more prevalent as people age. The latest reports one on children and the other on adults focused on obesity, meaning a body-mass index of at least 30. But the numbers of adults and children who were overweight, with a BMI of between 25 and 29, also remained high. Overall, 33 percent of adults were overweight but not obese, versus about 15 percent of children and teens. Rates of overweight or obese adults and children were generally higher in blacks and Hispanics than in whites. The government says a healthy weight is a BMI of between 18 and 25. The index is a ratio of height to weight.

Simple ingredients can create sensational pasta

By J.M. Hirsch

When you select the right ingredients, it doesnt take many of them to create a fantastic dinner. Nor much time. The trick is to pick ingredients with tons of avor, then let them do the heavy lifting for you. I usually start with a main ingredient that is basically agreeable to any avor. Chicken, pasta, pork tenderloin, potatoes all great choices. Next, pick a few pantry staples that pack gobs of flavor. Cheeses, cured meats, hot peppers, and just about any sauce or seasoning you care to pick up in your grocers international aisle. This recipe for spicy sausage and arugula penne is a great example of this approach. I boil up some pasta, then toss it with browned peppery sausage, deliciously bitter baby arugula, some savory sun-dried tomatoes and grated Parmesan. The result is amazing. And of course, the recipe is incredibly versatile. No sausage? Used ground beef, pork or turkey. Dont care for sundried tomatoes? Use roasted red peppers. Parmesan not your style? An aged gouda or crumbled feta would be deli-

cious, too. And baby spinach or broccoli would easily stand in for the arugula. Have it your way. Just be sure to have it with lots of avor.

Spicy sausage and arugula penne

Start to nish: 20 minutes Servings: 6 12 ounces penne pasta 1 pound spicy Italian sausage meat 1 large yellow onion, diced 1/2 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, chopped 5-ounce package arugula 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese Salt and ground black pepper Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente according to package directions. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking water, then drain and set aside. In a large saute pan over mediumhigh, brown the sausage meat and onion until cooked through, about 10 minutes. As it cooks, use a wooden spoon to break up the meat into bite-size chunks. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and arugula, then toss well. Add the pasta and toss until heated through and the arugula just begins to wilt.

Spicy sausage and arugula penne is easy to make and packed with avor.
Add half of the cheese and a splash of the reserved pasta cooking water. Toss well, adding more water if desired to create a sauce. Serve topped with the remaining cheese.

Voltaggio brothers: Different routes to same path

By Michele Kayal

FREDERICK, Md. Bryan Voltaggio stands in his restaurant, Volt, arms folded. He doesnt break a smile, a frown or a sweat. Its the same modest, soft-spoken persona that became his trademark on Season 6 of Bravos Top Chef, which portrayed him in stark contrast to the mouthy arrogance of another contestant his younger brother, Michael. Their differences made for great television: Bryans clean-cut looks versus Michaels wrist-to-shoulder tattoos; Bryans methodical presentation of sardine llet on potato and junipersauced venison alongside Michaels gutsy cream of dehydrated broccoli and fennel-scented squab with textures of mushroom. If Bryan was

smoldering, Michael was a house on re. But heat whether in embers or ame is what unites them. Dig beneath their apparent differences, and what emerges is much more impressive: their similarities. Theyre more similar, says celebrated chef and restaurateur Charlie Palmer, who is a mentor to both Voltaggios. They were always standout guys in terms of determination. They always had great imaginations. They were always pushing the boundaries. They never settled for Its OK. In the two years since Top Chef which Michael, 33, ultimately won it is this shared passion (and more than a smidgen of business savvy) that has transformed decades of sibling rivalry into a fruitful cooperation. As a culinary Cain-and-Abel turned Osmond brothers they wield potato

ricers and avor injectors for the Williams-Sonoma catalogue. Theyve plunged into their rst international venture, a restaurant in Mumbai, India, set to open in midJanuary, for which they are essentially long-distance executive chefs. And together they have written a cookbook, Volt ink., which contrasts their talents in recipes for ingredient families like mollusk and nightshade. Like their other ventures, the

cookbook calls to mind the only tattoo they share in common: a lightning bolt with the letters TCB, for taking care of business. Theres denitely this chef branding thing today, and weve fallen into the Voltaggio brothers, Michael says. Its not Michael or Bryan, its the Voltaggios. The brand may be new, but its underpinnings began in the womb. Just two years apart, the boys often were mistaken for twins, says their mother, Sharon Mangine, and despite their personalities Bryan was cautious, she says, Michael the risk taker they shared a twin-like communication. We are more similar than either one of us realizes, Michael says. Lets start with food: we both tell each other that we copy each other, but I think thats not the case. Its that we have the same thoughts.

Chipotle peppers: What they are, how to use them

By J.M. Hirsch

Pay no attention to the many shelves of faux salsas (Blueberrypineapple? Really?) and shove aside all those cans of low-fat, low-sodium, no-avor refried beans. For this weeks underappreciated ingredient, you will need to dig a bit deeper into your grocers Hispanic section. Your goal? Mexicos gift to

high-flavor cooking chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Typically sold in 7-ounce cans, these not entirely attractive (truth is, they look a bit prune-like) peppers pack gobs of smoky, chocolaty, slightly sweet piquancy. First, the basics. Chipotles are really just jalapeno peppers that have been dried and smoked. In the U.S., they most often are sold canned in adobo sauce, a smooth

tomato-vinegar blend spiked with garlic, onion and various spices. The result is that you essentially get two ingredients in each can: peppers and sauce. The peppers marinate in the adobo, taking on its sweet tang. Meanwhile, the sauce absorbs some of the peppers heat. But you dont need to be a heat fiend to appreciate these flavor bombs. Jalapenos are hardly the most intense chili around. Still,

most people will nd that one to two is plenty for most dishes. Some people suggest you can moderate the heat by slicing the chipotles open and scraping out the seeds, much as you would with fresh jalapenos. Thats way too much trouble for me. Id rather just use less. Or use just the sauce. One can is likely to last you a while. Though leftovers can be refrigerated for a couple weeks,

your best bet is to divide the peppers and sauce into an ice cube tray, then freeze for easy use whenever. Not surprisingly, chipotles in adobo sauce are wonderful in Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes. Chop them and mix them into shredded cheese for topping nachos. Dice or puree a few to crank up the heat of your favorite chili. Marinate beef

to art in all its forms, he said. We are moving it from private space to a public space. The city has a thriving dance program with 350 children and also offers music lessons to some children at vacated artist studios at the Barrett Community Center now, he said. Waters is currently looking for other studio space and said she may have to leave Belmont. She is also the founder and chair of the Peninsula Museum of Art, located at the Manor House. The city is expected to start negotiations on a new lease agreement with the museum, which has also expired. Waters fears the citys old goal of creating an artists colony in Belmont has faded. There are different people with different commitments that now lead the city, Waters said. They dont value art the way the community previously did. Belmonts own vision statement, amended in 2003, includes being an arts hub for the Peninsula. Councilwoman Coralin Feierbach said the city was only asking for a modest rent increase. That kind of room lease is usually $1.50 a square foot elsewhere, Feierbach said. Besides, Feierbach said, only three Belmont residents actually hold studios at the Barrett site. more than 2,000 feet from any residential area. Those that do not meet that standard, however, will require a conditional use permit which adds a Planning Commission public hearing to the approval process. Concerns about applications to attach devices to existing poles in the public rightof-way in residential neighborhoods began in late summer. T-Mobile and ExteNet Systems have put in 27 applications to install antennas in residential areas of Burlingame to meet the growing need for cellphone service. These smaller devices are proposed to be placed in residential areas. Company representatives say it will allow for increased service throughout the county while residents described them as blight and unnecessary. Residents requested a moratorium to study the issue and draft rules a request the city granted. The moratorium also covered pending applications resulting in a lawsuit from ExteNet which, among other claims, requested to be exempt from the ban. In November, Judge George Miram ruled the temporary ban could include previously submitted applications. The city must rule on the application by the end of the month. Both parties are due back in court Feb. 8. At the same meeting, the council Artist Kay Podolsky is one of those three Belmont residents. She has had a studio at the old school since 1985 and has worked alongside Waters since 1977 when the group rst occupied space at the Twin Pines Art Center, which has since been turned into a community center by the city. It has been a second home to me, she said. I hate to leave but I guess I may need to nd some place else to go. Artist Kevyn Warnock has had a studio at Barrett for about 20 years and expects she may have to switch to a smaller studio at the Art Center to afford the rent increase. It depends on what they show me in a new lease, Warnock said. She said, however, that lease negotiations with the city was an unpleasant experience. They have no value for us, Warnock said. Feierbach thinks its time the Barrett site was used by a broader group of Belmont residents. To me, I feel that these rooms at Barrett should be rented for community use, not private space as it is now. Barrett is owned by the city and as such should be enjoyed by all its residents, Feierbach said. The artists got the notice of lease termination, coincidentally, on Friday the 13th. approved a garbage rate increase of up to 25 percent starting Feb. 1. Mailings of the 2012 rate change were previously sent out to inform rate payers of the councils intent to adjust the rate equal to about a 25 percent. Fewer than 30 protests had been led by the end of the week before the public hearing. During the meeting, however, numerous people spoke against the proposal and urged the city to consider other options and cut expenses and services rather than increase rates. Brownrigg requested next years adjustment be discussed earlier and that the joint powers board overseeing garbage work to keep expenses down.

The new rents will be based on 70 cents per square foot and contain standard insurance requirements. Currently, the artists pay about 52 cents a square foot with insurance already folded into the lease agreement, said Ruth Waters, the founder and director of 1870 Art Center. The increase represents a 35 percent rise, Waters said, a burden the artists cannot afford. The group was founded in 1977 and formed as a corporation in 1985 when it rst found its home in Barrett. Weve known this was going from bad to worse for a year, Waters told the Daily Journal yesterday. The citys lease with the corporation terminates April 30 but Waters is hoping to get one more month out of the city as 1870 Art Center preps for the Silicon Valley Open Studios event in mid-May. Gervais said the city would consider extending the lease one more month, depending on council direction. The Parks and Recreation Department also looks to expand some of the programs it offers by using any vacated studio space, Gervais said. We want to increase offerings related

pending lawsuit. As an urgency measure, the rules go into effect immediately to meet the requirements under a pending lawsuit with ExteNet Systems, City Attorney Gus Guinan said. The regular ordinance will not be adopted until early February. Guinan described it as a living document which could be amended in the future as concerns and questions arise. Interestingly, ExteNet will not be subject to the new rules. Guinan explained that requiring the companys proposal meet the new regulations, which the council questioned, could open up the city to additional legal challenges. Under the proposed guidelines, the city encourages wireless communication boxes and antennas be placed in nonresidential areas and be hidden as much as possible.

Coast Guard orders captain back aboard sinking ship


ROME You go on board! Is that clear? Do you hear me? the Coast Guard ofcer shouted as the captain of the grounded Costa Concordia sat safe in a life raft and frantic passengers struggled to escape after the ship rammed into a reef off the Tuscan coast. It is an order. Dont make any more excuses. You have declared Abandon ship. Now I am in charge. The dramatic recording made public Tuesday shows Capt. Francesco Schettino resisted orders to return to his ship to direct the evacuation, saying it was too dark and the ship was tipping perilously. The exchange came to light as the death toll nearly doubled to 11 after divers pulled the bodies of four men and a woman, all wearing life vests, from the wreckage. Some two dozen people remain missing. The Costa Concordia had more than 4,200 passengers and crew on board when it slammed into the reef Friday off the tiny island of Giglio after Schettino

made an unauthorized maneuver from the ships programmed course apparently to show off the luxury liner to the islands residents. Schettino has insisted that he stayed aboard until the ship was evacuated. However, the recording of his conversation with Italian Coast Guard Capt. Gregorio De Falco makes clear he ed before all passengers were off and then deed De Falcos repeated orders to go back. Listen Schettino, De Falco can be heard shouting in the audio tape. There are people trapped on board. ... You go on board and then you will tell me how many people there are. Is that clear? But Schettino resisted, saying the ship was listing and he was with his secondin-command in the lifeboat. I am here with the rescue boats. I am here. I am not going anywhere. I am here, he said. I am here to coordinate the rescue. What are you coordinating there? Go on board! Coordinate the rescue from aboard the ship. Are you refusing? said Atif provided stories for the service. A spokesman for the Taliban called an Associated Press reporter to claim responsibility for the killing. Insanullah Ihsan of the Taliban said the militants had warned Atif a number of times to stop anti-Taliban reporting, but he didnt do so. He nally met his fate. A colleague said Atif, 40, had received threats from militants in the Mohmand tribal region and moved away from there several months ago. The man didnt give his name for security reasons. Last year, seven journalists were killed in Pakistan, making it the deadliest country for journalists for the second year in a row.

came the response. Schettino said he was not refusing, but he still did not return to the ship, saying at one point: Do you realize it is dark and here we cant see anything? De Falco shouted back: And so what? You want to go home, Schettino? It is dark and you want to go home? Get on that prow of the boat using the pilot ladder and tell me what can be done, how many people there are and what their needs are. Now! The exchange also indicates that Schettino did not know anyone had died, with De Falco telling him at one point: There are already bodies now, Schettino. How many bodies? Schettino asks in a nervous tone. You are the one who has to tell me how many there are! De Falco barks in response. Schettino was nally heard on the tape agreeing to reboard. But the Coast Guard has said he never went back, and police arrested him on land several hours later. their ght over democratic rights fully into the open Tuesday, with the EU Commission launching legal challenges against the former Soviet-bloc country many fear may be slipping back toward authoritarianism. The EUs executive Commission said the new constitution that came into force Jan. 1 undermines the independence of the national central bank and the judiciary and does not respect data privacy principles. Prime Minister Viktor Orban, whose grip on power has already earned him the nickname Viktator, deed the criticism and invited himself to the EU parliament in Strasbourg on Wednesday to confront European detractors head on. We wont allow the international left to accuse Hungary through lies and baseless slander, his ofce said in a statement.

Note that this construction project will be covered by a wrap insurance policy. A Contractor Controlled Insurance Program (hereinafter CCIP) is a centralized insurance program where the General Contractor purchases insurance on behalf of all the construction participants, regardless of tier, for all the labor performed on-site at the project. This contrasts with the typical approach whereby each party is responsible for purchasing its own insurance. Enrollment in the CCIP program will be mandatory for all eligible subcontractors providing labor at this jobsite. We have provided a Field Procedures and Insurance Manual on our website at [] explaining the details of this program. Submit your bid as a gross bid with your own insurance coverage included. If selected, you will be asked to complete an Insurance Deduct Worksheet in order to calculate a CCIP credit. The CCIP credit will be a deduct to the total contract cost for the CCIP provided coverage. The Insurance Deduct Worksheet will assist in calculating the total cost of your Workers Compensation, Commercial General Liability and Excess/Umbrella coverage incorporated into your bid pricing. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding the plans, bid procedures or insurance requirements for bidding this Project. Pacific West Builders, Inc. reserves the right to reject any and all bids.
