South City appoints
a new councilman
By Heather Murtagh
Planning Commissioner Pradeep
Gupta will serve on the South San
Francisco City Council through
November when a special election
will be held for the remaining two
years of a seat vacated after the
November election.
Thirteen people applied to ll the
vacant seat created when Kevin
Mullin was elected to the Assembly.
Mullin still has nearly three years in
his term. On Monday, the council
held a special meeting to discuss the
appointment. The council previous-
ly had agreed that Gupta would be a
good t but had trouble deciding if
he should be
appointed for
the remainder of
the term or until
November when
a special elec-
tion could be
called. The
council unani-
mously opted
for the latter.
Councilman Rich Garbarino did-
nt want the council to have an open
seat for 11 months which was an
option if an appointment was not
made. Since the council had been
deadlocked previously on the

Celebrating the end of a year can
be a joyous occasion shared by
friends, family and sometimes even
strangers, as people gather near a
clock and impatiently count down
from ve, four, three, two, one,
happy New Years!

Commemorating the new year
with one or more drinks is com-
monplace in our culture, despite
the vengeful consequences of a
hangover. There are several proac-
tive tricks a partygoer can use to
fend off a potential hangover. Its
important to eat a solid meal before
starting to drink, as well as a light
snack before bed if they start to
suspect the makings of a hangover
at hand. Intermittently drinking
water between alcoholic beverages
will also help to avoid some of the

against the clock, the White House
reached agreement with congres-
sional Republicans late Monday on
a deal to prevent across-the-board
tax increases and spending cuts to
government programs from taking
effect at midnight, according to
administration and Senate
Democratic ofcials.
These ofcials said a New Years
Eve vote in the Senate to ratify the
deal was possi-
ble later in the
evening, barring
opposition from

There was no
immediate con-
firmation from
aides to the top
Republicans in
Congress, Sen. Mitch McConnell
and House Speaker John Boehner.
Vice President Joseph Biden
headed for the Capitol to brief the
Democratic rank and le.
The ofcials who described the
developments did so on condition of
anonymity, saying they were not
authorized to discuss the details.
Hours earlier, President Barack
Obama said, It appears that an
agreement to prevent this New
Years tax hike is within sight. ...
But its not done, he added of leg-
islation that redeems his campaign
pledge to raise taxes on the wealthy
while sparing the middle class.
Even by the dysfunctional stan-
dards of government-by-gridlock,
the activity at both ends of historic
Pennsylvania Avenue was remark-
able as the White House and
Congress struggled over legislation
to prevent a scal cliff of tax
increases and spending cuts.
As darkness fell on the last day of
the year, Obama, Biden and their
aides were at work in the White
House, and lights burned in the
House and Senate. Democrats com-
plained that Obama had given away
too much in agreeing to limit tax
increases to incomes over $450,000,
far above the $250,000 level he
campaigned on. Yet some
Republicans recoiled at the prospect
of raising taxes at all.
A late dispute over the estate tax
produced allegations of bad faith
from all sides.
Senate Republican leader Mitch
McConnell shepherding final
talks with Biden agreed with
Obama that an overall deal was
near. In remarks on the Senate oor,
he suggested Congress move quick-
ly to pass tax legislation and con-

Hey Ethan, call it a comeback.
After slipping out of the top 10 last
year, the name Ethan is again tops for
little boys in San Mateo County. For
newborn girls, Olivia holds the crown,
beating out Isabella which is in second
place a second year in a row after a
seven-year hold on the top spot.
As in past years, the most popular names in
San Mateo County tend to be familiar.
Often the only differences from year to
year are not the top 10 names but the
order in which they fall. The rank-
ings are based on 2,778 male
births and 2,562 female births in
San Mateo County between Jan.
1, 2012 and Dec. 17, 2012,
according to statistics collect-
ed by the County Clerks
The ofce did not have a
final tally for the last
weeks of 2012 but addi-
tional numbers
would probably
not change the
rankings for
first place Olivia, for
example, garnered 36 names while second-
place Isabella had 28. Sophia followed
with 27 names and Emily had 22.
The boys were also fairly close
with Ethan having 32 namesakes
followed with a 28-count tie for
Alexander and Andrew. Lucas
had 27 and Daniel 26.
But dont think every parent
is picking out the exact same
name for their bouncing bun-
dles of joy. The majority
opted for names falling
into the other cate-
gory. Of the boys
born, 2,524 received
a name other than
those in the top 10
and 2,341 girls
were also given less
popular names.
The top names for
boys and their counts for
2012 are:
Ethan, 32
Alexander, 28
Andrew, 28
Lucas, 27
Jacob, 24
Benjamin, 23
Christopher, 23
Dylan, 22
Anthony, 21
Last years top names were Lucas,
Alexander and Jacob. The 2011 list also
included Matthew, Nathan, Jackson, Owen

Homeowner must maintain property as primary residence and remain current on
property taxes and insurance
By Bill Silverfarb
Hillsborough and its City Council are
being sued by a telephone company after its
recent passage of an urgency ordinance that
puts a temporary moratorium on the issuance
of wireless communications facility per-
mits, according to a claim filed in San
Mateo County Superior Court by Newpath
Networks and Crown Castle West.
Crown submitted four applications to the
city in June to construct telecommunications
and wireless broadband infrastructure in the
citys public right-of-way but was told by
city staff that the applications were incom-
plete, according to the claim.
Crown contends city staff declared the
applications incomplete to give the council
time to pass the urgency ordinance, accord-
ing to the claim.
The moratorium passed Sept. 10 and is in
effect until Aug. 9, 2013.
Crowns project seeks 19 installations in
Hillsborough but the company only submit-
ted applications for four of the installations,
said Assistant City Attorney Mark Hudak.
The city wants to consider the project as a
whole and Crown is challenging the determi-
nation that the application is incomplete,
Hudak said.
Crown seeks to install, maintain and oper-
ate telephone facilities specifically, a dis-
tributed antenna system, with associated
fiber optic cables, antenna nodes, fiber
repeaters and other facilities within
Hillsboroughs public right-of-way, accord-
ing to the claim.
The moratorium violates state law, accord-
ing to the claim.
The matter of the installation of telecom-
munications facilities in the [public right-of-
way] by telephone corporations, including ...
Crown, is unequivocally a matter of
statewide not municipal concern,
according to the claim.
Since Crown feels the ordinance is a viola-
tion of state law, it is seeking relief from the
court to determine it has the right to access
the citys public right-of-way under state law.
According to the claim, local governments
are limited only to controlling the time, place
and manner of access to the public right-of-
way and nothing more.
We recognize people want to have access
to wireless communication but we want to
maintain aesthetic control and make sure the
installations are built safely, Hudak said.
Feds probe Stanford
dams effects on rare fish
Federal regulators are investigating whether
Stanford Universitys operation of a San
Mateo County dam is illegally harming threat-
ened steelhead trout on Californias central
The National Marine Fisheries Service is
probing the universitys operation of
Searsville Dam.
The central coast population of steelhead
which live part of their lives in the ocean and
part in freshwater creeks is a threatened
species under the Endangered Species Act.
Environmentalists argue the 65-foot-tall
dam blocks the sh from accessing upstream
habitat on San Francisquito Creek.
Stanford spokeswoman Lisa Lapin says the
school is already in the midst of a two-year
study meant to address concerns over the
dams effects on a number of threatened and
endangered species that live in the area.

people trapped in an apartment on the second
floor of the building, San Jose Fire

The police ofcer, who has not been named,

PENDLETON, Ore. Authorities say it
may be a month or more before investigators
and prosecutors decide whether to le charges
in the crash of a tour bus in Eastern Oregon
that killed nine people.
At a news conference Monday, State Police
Lt. Gregg Hastings said investigators dont
know how fast the bus was going, but there
were icy spots on Interstate 84 through the
Blue Mountains.
Hastings says 49 people, most of them
Koreans, were on the bus that hit a concrete
barrier, veered across both westbound lanes,
went through a guardrail and plunged 200 feet
down a bank. Hastings said authorities are
working with the South Korean consulate to
identify victims.
Some survivors have been released from
regional hospitals, and a few are in serious or
critical condition. Their ages range from 7 to
Pinnacles National Park
designation passes Senate
SOLEDAD A bill designating central
Californias Pinnacles National Monument a
national park is awaiting President Barack
Obamas signature.
The Pinnacles National Park Act, designed to
raise the prole of the sanctuarys towering rock
formations and caves, was passed by the Senate
during a rare Sunday session. The House
approved it in July.
President Theodore Roosevelt designated the
26,000-acre Pinnacles site a national monument
in 1908. Sen. Barbara Boxer sponsored the bill
with fellow California Democratic Sen. Dianne
Boxer said that national park designation will
give the site near Soledad the recognition it
deserves as well as boost tourism.
Alcohol sales enforcers
get heavy-duty protection
SACRAMENTO The state agency that
regulates alcohol sales purchased more than
$70,000 worth of gas masks and bullet-resistant
helmets for its ofcers, even though the nature
of their work rarely exposes them to gunre, a
newspaper reported Monday.
Nearly three-quarters of the arrests by
Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control
agents from July 2010 to March 2012 involved
selling or giving alcoholic beverages to minors.
The agency regulates alcohol sales through
undercover stings at bars, restaurants and retail-
ers. When the nature of the work puts them in
the line of re, the agents almost always call
police, the Bee said.
Court: Parks not liable
for bumper car injuries
SAN FRANCISCO Amusement parks are
not nancially responsible for injuries suffered
on bumper cars, the California Supreme Court
ruled in an opinion published Monday.
The high court said people who ride bumper
cars under normal conditions automatically
assume some risk just as people who play
football or other sports and cannot sue after
being injured.
A small degree of risk inevitably accompa-
nies the thrill of speeding through curves and
loops, defying gravity or, in bumper cars,
engaging in the mock violence of low-speed
collisions, Associate Justice Kathryn Werdegar
wrote. Those who voluntarily join in these
activities also voluntarily take on their minor
inherent risks.

WASHINGTON Secretary of State Hillary
Rodham Clinton developed a blood clot in her
head but did not suffer a stroke or neurological
damage, her doctors said Monday. They say
they are condent that she will make a full
In a statement that revealed the location of the
clot, Clintons doctors said it is in the vein in the
space between the brain and the skull behind the
right ear. She is being treated with blood thin-
ners to help dissolve the clot, the doctors said,
and she will be released once the medication
dose has been established.
Clinton, 65, is making excellent progress and
is in good spirits, Dr. Lisa Bardack of the Mount
Kisco Medical Group and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi
of George Washington University said in a state-
Clinton, who was spending a second day at a
New York hospital, developed the clot after suf-
fering a concussion earlier in December. She
had fainted, fallen and struck her head at home
while battling a stomach virus, her spokesman
said. She has not been seen publicly since Dec.
Phillipe Reines, her spokesman, said
her doctors discovered the clot Sunday
while performing a follow-up exam on
the concussion. She was admitted to New
York-Presbyterian Hospital.
Clintons complication certainly isnt the
most common thing to happen after a concus-
sion and is one of the few types of blood clots
in the skull or head that are treated with blood
thinners, said Dr. Larry Goldstein, a neurologist

Clinton had planned to step down as secretary
of state at the beginning of President Barack
Obamas second term. Whether she will return
to work before she resigns remained a question.
Democrats are privately if not publicly specu-
lating: How might her illness affect a decision
about running for president in 2016?
After decades in politics, Clinton says she
plans to spend the next year resting. She has
long insisted she had no intention of mounting a
second campaign for the White House four
years from now. But the door is not entirely
closed, and she would almost certainly emerge
as the Democrat to beat if she decided to give in
to calls by Democratic fans and run again.

Dressed in sparkles and superhero outts,
children along with their parents lined up
Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos
Monday morning.
Families were hoping to be part of the annu-
al Noon Years Eve celebration, which sold
out prior to the countdown.
Its been a while since I was at a sold out
New Years event, said San Carlos mom
Holly Lawrence.
It was the Lawrences rst time at the party.
Six-year-old Sabrina, who got quite dressed
up for the occasion, decided to get Disneys
The Little Mermaid painted on her face before
the countdown while 4-year-old Mason, don-
ning Batman garb, decided to keep his face
Many parents get to the event about two
hours before, to really take advantage of the
party before the countdown. Anne Estep of
Hayward had returned to Hiller with her hus-
band and boys for the second year. This year
Ethan, 3-and-a-half, and Jacob, 1-and-a-half,
were a bit more aware of what was going on.
Her older son recalled specic details of last
years event and looked forward to the balloon
drop all year long. The boys were wearing
homemade 2013 crowns to celebrate the occa-
Preparation for the balloon drop starts well
before the countdown. By 20 minutes before,
all the spots under the balloon hanging are
lled with parents and children claiming their
stake. The rules of sharing balloons one
plastic sphere per kiddo are explained
before the drumroll started.
10, nine, eight, seven, six, ve, four, three,
two, one!! Happy Noon Year! the crowd
exclaimed as colorful balloons fell onto the
hundreds below. The one balloon-per-child
rule was quickly dismissed as youngsters
grabbed for an array of colors to take home
from the mid-day celebration.
It was actually the second countdown in
less than half an hour. Families had a chance
to practice the big event when performer Phil
Ackerly, specializing in magic and comedy,
was attempting to make his self-imposed goal
of getting out of a straight jacket in 3 minutes
or less (It took 2 minutes and 58 seconds).
Children also had an opportunity to partici-
pate in crafts like making planes, jumping in
a bounce house, taking a big slide or explor-
ing a variety of aircrafts on site.
Hundreds of photos were snapped and little
ones were ling out of the museum minutes
after the countdown leaving a few straggling,
colorful balloons behind. Everything wrapped
up in time for parents to put their little ones
down for the last nap of the year.

Years celebrations in style and an
atmosphere of renewed optimism,
despite the fiscal cliff impasse of
spending cuts and tax increases
threatening to reverberate globally
from the United States.
Huge fireworks lit up skylines in
Sydney, Hong Kong and Shanghai,
and even the once-isolated country
of Myanmar joined the countdown
party for the first time in decades.
Celebrations were planned
around the world, including the tra-
ditional crystal ball drop in New
York Citys Times Square, where 1
million people were expected to
cram into the surrounding streets.
In Russia, Moscows iconic Red
Square was filled with spectators
as fireworks exploded near the
Kremlin to welcome in the new
year. Earlier in the day, about 25
people were reportedly arrested in
Moscow for trying to hold an
unsanctioned demonstration. But
President Vladimir Putin gave an
optimistic New Years Eve address,
making no reference to the anti-
government protests that have
occurred in his country in the past
We believe that we can change
the life around us and become bet-
ter ourselves, that we can become
more heedful, compassionate, gra-
cious, Putin said, according to the
ITAR-Tass news agency.
In Australia, a balmy summer
night was split by 7 tons of fire-
works fired from rooftops and
barges in Sydney, many cascading

worlds largest.
In Myanmar, after nearly five
decades under military regimes
that discouraged or banned big
public gatherings, about 90,000
people experienced the countrys
first New Years Eve countdown in
a field in the largest city of Yangon.
We feel like we are in a differ-
ent world, said Yu Thawda, a uni-
versity student who came with

display, said to be the biggest ever

ple crowded the streets of the capi-
tal to watch a fireworks show over
the Taedong River. After being in

intelligence agencies but not the White
House made major changes in talking
points that led to the Obama administrations
confusing explanations of the attack on U.S.
diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya, a
Senate report concluded Monday.
The Homeland Security and Governmental
Affairs Committee report said the White
House was only responsible for a minor
change. Some Republicans had questioned
whether the presidential staff rewrote the talk-
ing points for political reasons.
The committee, headed by independent Sen.
Joe Lieberman of Connecticut and Republican
Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, also said the
director of national intelligence has been
stonewalling the panel in holding back a prom-
ised timeline of the talking point changes.
U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and
three other Americans were killed in the Sept.
11 attack. The U.S. ambassador to the United
Nations, Susan Rice, said she used the talking
points to say in television interviews on Sept.
16 that it may have been a protest that got out
of hand.
Rices incorrect explanation may have cost
her a chance to be nominated as the next sec-
retary of state, as Senate Republicans publicly
said they would not vote to conrm her.
President Barack Obama instead nominated
Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., chairman of the
Senate Foreign Relations Committee, who is
expected to win easy conrmation.
The State Department this month acknowl-
edged major weaknesses in security and errors
in judgment exposed in a scathing independ-
ent report on the assault. Two top State of-
cials appealed to Congress to fully fund
requests to ensure diplomats and embassies
are safe.
Testifying before two congressional com-
mittees, senior State Department officials
acknowledged that serious management and
leadership failures left the diplomatic mission
in Benghazi woefully unprepared for the ter-
rorist attack. The State Department review

JERUSALEM In a major concession
to Gazas Hamas leaders Monday, Israel
dropped its ve-year ban on construction
materials crossing into the territory and
raised hopes there that rebuilding could
begin following a damaging eight-day
Israeli air campaign.
The easing of restrictions is an out-
growth of the cease-re that ended the
airstrikes and months of daily rocket re
from Gaza at Israel. Contacts mediated
by Egypt to follow up the truce produced
the concession, and Israel promised to
keep easing the lives of Gazas 1.6 mil-
lion residents, as long as Israelis were no
longer targeted by rocket re by Gaza
How long the new arrangement holds
could serve as a test case for the brittle
truce between the bitter enemies. It also
reects a new power equation, with neigh-
boring Egypt under the control of the
Muslim Brotherhood, the parent group of
Israel, together with Egypt, imposed a
land and naval embargo on Gaza after
Hamas violently overtook the territory in
2007. Although Israel eased the restric-
tions in 2010, building materials such as
cement, gravel and metal rods were still
largely banned because Israel claimed
militants could use them to make fortica-
tions and weapons.
Hundreds of smuggling tunnels under
the Gaza-Egypt border gave Gaza a con-
duit for all manner of goods as well as
weapons, though the blockade remained
During eight days of violence in
November, the Israeli military said 1,500
rockets were red at Israel, including the
rst from Gaza to strike the Tel Aviv and
Jerusalem areas. The rocket attacks killed
six Israelis and wounded dozens. Israeli
airstrikes killed 169 Palestinians, many of
them militants, and caused considerable
damage. Israel said it targeted Hamas
installations and government buildings.
As part of a cease-re agreement bro-
kered by Egypts new Islamist leaders,
Israel agreed to consider new border
arrangements in return for a complete ces-
sation of rocket re.
Now were talking about a permanent
easing, said Maj. Guy Inbar, a military
spokesman. The longer the calm persists,
the more well weigh additional easing of
restrictions that will benet the private

enter Gaza, and other concessions may
follow depending on the continuation of
the calm.
Last week, Israel authorized the entry of
60 trucks and buses for the rst time since
the Hamas takeover.

conrmed that Israeli agreed to send in 20
trucks of gravel daily, ve days a week.
The Israelis promised to undertake fur-
ther measures to alleviate the difcult eco-
nomic situation in Gaza as a result of the
calm, he said. This move had been
expected as part of the deal.
Gazas leaders demand much more.
Hamas wants Israel to lift the remainder
of the blockade and the lifting of a near-
total ban on exports from the impover-
ished territory. Exports, especially to the
West Bank, the Palestinian territory on the
opposite side of Israel, once formed the
backbone of Gazas economy.

Chavez suffers new complications in cancer fight
CARACAS, Venezuela President Hugo Chavezs new
complications after cancer surgery prompted his closest allies
to call for Venezuelans to pray for him on
Monday, presenting an increasingly bleak
outlook and prompting growing specula-
tion about whether the ailing leader has
much longer to live.
Vice President Nicolas Maduro looked
weary and spoke with a solemn expression as
he announced in a televised address from
Havana on Sunday that Chavez now con-
fronts new complications due to a respira-
tory infection nearly three weeks after his
operation. He described Chavezs condition
as delicate. The streets of Caracas were abuzz on Monday with
talk of Chavezs increasingly tough ght, while the news topped
the front pages of the countrys newspapers.
Hes history now, said Cesar Amaro, a street vendor selling
newspapers and snacks at a kiosk in downtown Caracas. He
motioned to a daily on the rack showing side-by-side photos of
Maduro and National Assembly President Diosdado Cabello,
and said politics will now turn to them.
Amaro said he expects a new election soon to replace
Chavez. For an illness like the one the president has, his days
are numbered now, he said matter-of-factly.
In Bolivar Plaza in downtown Caracas, Chavezs supporters
strummed guitars and read poetry in his honor on New Years
Eve. They sang along with a recording of the president belting
out the national anthem. About 300 people lled a Caracas
church for a Mass to pray for Chavez.
North Korea cracks down on knowledge smugglers
HUNCHUN, China The warning came from Kim Jong Un,
the North Korean ruler who sees his isolated nation, just across
the border from this busy Chinese trading
town, as under siege. The attack, he said,
must be stopped.
We must extend the ght against the
enemys ideological and cultural inltra-
tion, Kim said in an October speech at the
headquarters of his immensely powerful
internal security service. Kim, who became
North Koreas supreme leader after the death
of his father a year ago, called upon his vast
security network to ruthlessly crush those
hostile elements.
Over the past year, Kim has intensied a border crackdown
that has attempted to seal the once-porous 1,420-kilometer (880-
mile) frontier with China, smugglers and analysts say, trying to
hold back the onslaught.
The assault that he fears? Its being waged with cheap televi-
sions rigged to receive foreign broadcasts, and with smuggled
mobile phones that if you can get a Chinese signal along the
border can call the outside world. Very often, it arrives in the
form of wildly popular South Korean soap operas smuggled in
on DVDs or computer thumb drives.

f it looks like a tax, sounds like a tax
and acts like a tax, is it a tax? I think
In 2011, Foster City, in a consortium with
other Peninsula cities, entered a contract with
Recology for refuse removal and recycling.
My rates increased by 37 percent. Initially,
there were numerous difculties as Recology
and its employees learned how to work with
their new systems and equipment. Recology
is now operating efciently so that when they
have an issue (spilled trash, etc.) it is an
exception not the rule. We have adapted to
the new collection containers, frequency of
collections and increased fees. I view this as
a good and well-performing service.
Entering 2013, Recology no longer
requires 6 percent of their fees (of the
increase?). This likely reects the successful
conclusion of non-recurring startup costs.
One would expect Foster City to return these
funds to us who pay Recologys fees. We
were told the choices were to reduce user
fees, set the funds aside to defray future rate
increases or contribute these funds to the
citys general operating fund. During its Dec.
17 meeting, our City Council voted to
approve staffs recommendation that the city
take 5 percent by doubling its franchise fee
from 5 percent to 10 percent or $275,000 per
year increase. Remember the 37 percent rate
increase enacted in 2011? Essentially our
City Council is relying on Recology to col-
lect taxes from Foster City residents for use
by Foster City. Councilmen Charlie
Bronitsky and Art Kiesel voted against this
tax. I thank them for this
It is possible that our
sister cities here on the
Peninsula will have simi-
lar options. If so, pay
This tax is biased
Staff justied this fran-
chise fee increase citing road maintenance
and personnel costs. After two years of
Recologys trucks running over our streets, it
seems unlikely that required maintenance or
demands on city personnel would increase
going forward. Since Foster City accepted
the 5 percent franchise fee as being adequate
going into 2011, it seems unlikely that future
costs have increased now that the Recology
systems are running smoothly.
More than 60 percent of the residences in
Foster City are in homeowner associations.
HOAs pay for the maintenance of roads
within our complexes. Other residences are
on roads maintained by the city. Accepting
staffs argument that this franchise fee
increase is to maintain our roads and except-
ing commonly used arteries this results in 60
percent of the residences within Foster City
subsidizing the other 40 percent.
If this tax were put to a vote or our resi-
dents, I doubt that those of us in the 60 per-
cent (HOAs) would vote to tax ourselves to
subsidize the remaining 40 percent.
Staff could focus on the
rates charged by Recology
During the Dec. 17 Foster City Council
meeting, Councilman Herb Perez observed
that Foster City residents have among the
lowest fees for recycling and refuse removal
among the group of cities that negotiated
rates effective in 2011. This is supported by
exhibits presented by staff, but in my opinion
misses a key point.
It seems useful to observe that Foster City
is a planned community built on land
reclaimed from the Bay. This has resulted in
planned roads; roads that are, subjectively,
wider than roads in other cities; our land is
at, with no hills; Foster City has received
awards for the quality of its roads; and Foster
City has greater population density than
other Peninsula cities, in large part due to 60
percent of our residents living in HOAs.
Based on their costs, Recology should
offer substantially lower fees to Foster City
relative to our neighbors on the Peninsula.
There was no evidence presented that staff
has logic checked or audited the data present-
ed by the consortium of cities.
Perhaps staff could negotiate lower
prospective rates in addition to their success-
ful effort to capture fees (assess a tax) to mit-
igate our structural decit.

Daily Journal boycott
Since I was the rst to react to Dwight
Schwabs appearance in the Daily Journal, I
might as well be the rst to declare that I will
boycott your publication on any Sunday fol-
lowing the publication of his columns. As
much as I disapprove of his crazy view-
points, I welcome his columns, on a very
limited basis. Why not? Theyre always be
good for a laugh.
No more.
Incidentally, Camp David was not estab-
lished by President Eisenhower, as Schwab
asserts in the Dec. 28 edition of the Daily
Journal. It was carved out during the Great
Depression and later established as a presi-
dential retreat by my hero, President Franklin
D. Roosevelt, who decided it should be
tagged, Shangri-La.

shot higher on Monday even as the s-

ended, Republicans and Democrats still
hadnt reached a budget compromise
but investors were betting that they
It was a dramatic day on what turned
out to be a strong year for stocks. The
Standard & Poors 500 index rose 13.4
percent for the year, after nishing at
in 2011. It was the indexs best year
since 2009, and it came despite over-
hanging problems like Europes debt
crisis and anemic U.S. growth, bringing
U.S. indexes close to their highs reached
before the 2008 nancial crisis.
Including dividends, the gain for the
S&P 500 was even higher 16 percent.
The close Monday was a high note in
what had been a choppy day for the
market, as choppy as the scal cliff
deal-making that has been yanking it
around. It also marked a turnaround
after ve straight days of cliff-inu-
enced losses. The Dow Jones industrial
average and the Standard & Poors 500
both climbed more than 1 percent. The
Nasdaq composite index rose 2 percent.
Stocks fell at the opening of trading
Monday and struggled for direction
throughout the morning. The indecisive-
ness overlaid a day of dramatic budget
negotiations in Washington, where law-
makers were trying to hammer out a
new budget deal to avert the scal
cliff. That refers to automatic tax
increases and government spending cuts
that will kick in without a budget deal.
Stocks jerked higher at midday fol-
lowing reports that the bare outline of a
deal to avoid the cliff had been knit
together. The gains faded after President
Barack Obama said in the early after-
noon that a compromise was within
sight, but not nalized. Then, in the late
afternoon, the indexes shot higher again.
Congressional Republicans and the
Democratic White House said they had
agreed on some measures, but still had
no nal deal in hand.

NEW YORK It may be a big if, but
assuming Washington lawmakers can get past
the scal cliff, many analysts say that the
outlook for stocks next year is good, as a recov-
ering housing market and an improving jobs
outlook helps the economy maintain a slow,
but steady recovery.
An advance of 10 percent in 2013 would
send the S&P 500 toward, and possibly past, its
record close of 1,565 reached in October 2007.
A mid-year rally in 2012 pushed stocks to
their highest in more than four years. Both the
Standard & Poors 500 and the Dow Jones
industrial average gained in 2012. Those
advances came despite uncertainty about the
outcome of the presidential election and bouts
of turmoil from Europe, where policy makers
nally appear to be getting a grip on the
regions debt crisis.
As you remove little bits of uncertainty,
investors can then once again return to focus-
ing on the fundamentals, says Joseph Tanious,
a global market strategist at J.P. Morgan Funds.
Corporate America is actually doing quite
Although earnings growth of S&P 500 listed
companies dipped as low as 0.8 percent in the
summer, analysts are predicting that it will
rebound to average 9.5 percent for 2013,
according to data from S&P Capital IQ.
Companies have also been hoarding cash. The
amount of cash and cash-equivalents being
held by companies listed in the S&P 500
climbed to an all-time high $1 trillion at the
end of September, 65 percent more than ve
years ago, according to S&P Dow Jones
By the time trading ended Monday,
Republicans and Democrats still hadnt
reached a budget compromise but investors
were betting that they would after President
Barack Obama said that a compromise was
within sight, but not nalized. Without a
budget agreement, millions of Americans face
the prospect of higher taxes and the govern-
ment would be forced to slash spending, meas-
ures that would probably push the economy
into recession, economists say.
Assuming a budget deal is reached in a rea-
sonable amount of time, investors will be more
comfortable owning stocks in 2013, allowing
valuations to rise, says Tanious.
Stocks in the S&P 500 index are currently
trading on a price-to-earnings multiple of about
13.5, compared with the average of 17.9 since
1988, according to S&P Capital IQ data. A
lower-than-average ration suggests that stocks
are cheap.
The stock market will also likely face less
drag from the European debt crisis this year,
said Steven Bulko, the chief investment ofcer
at Lombard Odier Investment Managers. While
policy makers in Europe have yet to come up
with a comprehensive solution to the regions
woes, they appear to have a better handle on
the regions problems than they have for quite
some time.
There is still some heavy lifting that needs
to be done in Europe, said Bulko. Now,
though, we are dealing with much more man-
ageable risk than we have had in the past few
Next year may also see an increase in merg-
ers and acquisitions as companies seeks to
make use of the cash on their balance sheets,
says Jarred Kessler, global head of equities at
broker Cantor Fitzgerald.
While the number of M&A deals has gradu-
ally crept higher in the past four years, the dol-
lar value of the deals remains remains well
short of the total reached ve years ago. U.S.
targeted acquisitions totaled $964 billion
through Dec. 27, according to data tracking
rm Dealogic. Thats slightly down from last
years total of $1 trillion and about 40 percent
lower than in 2007, when deals worth $1.6 tril-
lion were struck.
M&A deals are good for stock prices
because the acquiring company typically pays
a premium for the one its buying.
Falling interest rates also set off a rally in the
bond market. Concerns about swings in stock
prices prompted investors to switch money out
of stocks and into bond funds. If investors
decide that the bond rally may be nearing an
end, that ow of funds may be reversed, pro-
viding a support for stocks.
Equities are the best house in a bad neigh-
borhood, says Cantors Kessler. Bonds are,
not priced to euphoria, but they are denitely
rich compared to equities right now.

the Washington state minimum wage to
$9.19 an hour, high school student
Miranda Olson will edge closer to her
goal of buying the black Volkswagen
Beetle shes been researching online.
Olson is only able to pick up part-time
hours working at a cafe after classes and
on weekends. But the extra pennies
shell earn in 2013 will add up over the
coming weeks and months.
Its not much, but its something,
said Olson, 16, who works at Wagners
European Bakery and Cafe in Olympia.
Every bit helps.
Many workers around the country
wont be as lucky as residents of
Washington state, which is raising its
minimum wage Tuesday by 15 cents an
hour even though it already has the high-
est state baseline in the country.
Minimum-wage workers in Idaho will
make nearly $2 an hour less in 2013 than
their counterparts living just one state to
the west.
Automatic increases designed to com-
pensate for inflation have steadily
pushed up wages in some states, even
through the recession, expanding the pay
gap between areas that make annual
adjustments and those that dont. Of the
10 states that will increase the minimum
wage Tuesday, nine did so automatically
to adjust for ination.
Rhode Island lawmakers approved

Stanford Cardinal the favorite in 99th Rose Bowl
PASADENA When the Wisconsin play-
ers asked Barry Alvarez to return to the side-
line, he couldnt resist.
After all, its the Rose Bowl sideline, and
that old stadium has an irresistible lure for
lifelong football people.
But when Bret Bielema abruptly left the
Badgers for Arkansas after they clinched their
third straight trip to Pasadena, Alvarez also
felt a compulsion to protect the program he
built into a power. The underdog Badgers (8-
5) realize the odds they face against powerful
No. 8 Stanford (11-2) on Tuesday, but
Alvarezs mere presence on that sideline tells
his players theyve got a shot.
Just give me a whistle, Alvarez said.
Thats all I need, is a whistle and a bunch of
guys to coach, and I feel very comfortable
with that. And its been fun for me. This has
been like a gift. To be able to do this, and on
this stage, is truly special.
Alvarez is a Hall of Fame coach, but
Wisconsins athletic director knows he cant
work miracles. He acknowledges no tricks or
insight into beating the favored Cardinal in
Wisconsins third straight trip to Pasadena for
the 99th edition of the Granddaddy of Them

out much with the football team during the

they see him.

Black Monday claims
seven coaching jobs
Quite a day for NFL sacks.
Seven coaches and five general managers were fired
Monday in a urry of pink slips that were delivered the day
after the regular-season ended.
There could be more, but so far the sent-packing scorecard
looks like this:
Andy Reid in Philadelphia, Lovie Smith in Chicago, and
Ken Whisenhunt in Arizona, all coaches who took teams to
the Super Bowl, Norv Turner in San Diego, Pat Shurmur in
Cleveland, Romeo Crennel in Kansas City and Chan Gailey
in Buffalo.
Three teams made it a clean sweep, saying goodbye to the
GM along with the coach San Diego, Cleveland, Arizona.
General managers also were red in Jacksonville and in New
York, where Rex Ryan held onto his coaching job with the
Jets despite a losing record.
Reid was the longest tenured of the coaches, removed after
14 seasons and a Super Bowl appearance in 2005 a loss to
New England.
Smith spent nine seasons with the Bears, leading them to
the 2007 Super Bowl a loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
Turner has now been red as head coach by three teams.
San Diego won the AFC West from 2006-09, but didnt make
the postseason the last three years.
Both Norv and A.J. are consummate NFL professionals,
and they understand that in this league, the bottom-line is
winning, Chargers President Dean Spanos said in a state-
Whisenhunt was red after six seasons, including taking the
Cardinals to a Super Bowl loss to Pittsburgh after the 2008
season. He had more wins than any other coach in Cardinals
history, going 45-51, and has one year worth about $5.5 mil-
lion left on his contract. GM Rod Graves had been with
Arizona for 16 years, nine in his current position. A 5-11
record after a 4-0 start cost him and Whisenhunt their jobs.
Gailey was dumped after three seasons with the Bills;
Shurmur after two; and Crennel had one full season with the
ALAMEDA The rst year of the
new regime in Oakland ended in similar
fashion to the previous nine disappoint-
ing seasons for the Raiders, with no
playoff berth and changes on the coach-
ing staff.
Coach Dennis Allen red offensive
coordinator Greg Knapp, special teams
coordinator Steve Hoffman, offensive
line coach Frank Pollack and linebackers
coach Johnny Holland as he began over-
hauling a staff he put together after being
hired less than a year ago.
Allen and rst-year general manager
Reggie McKenzie had a long-range view
after taking over an organization that had
been run for nearly a half-century by late
owner Al Davis.
Im not in this for a one-year deal,
Allen said. Im in this long-term. Im in
this to build this thing the right way. And
Im excited about looking forward to the
future and where this organization is
going to go.
But Allen felt some changes to his
staff were necessarily after one season in
which Oaklands win total dropped from
eight to four, the offense regressed and
the defense allowed the most points for
the franchise since 1961.
Obviously, I believe in continuity, he
said. I think thats the way youre able
to sustain success in this league is
through continuity. But I also know that
at some point were looking for the
results and we have to have the results.
This is a win-now business no matter
how much patience were looking for.
Allen said the four changes announced
Monday are the only coaches he plans to
get rid of this offseason.
For a change, the head coach will be
coming back.
The Raiders made six coaching
changes the previous nine seasons,
including ring Tom Cable after an 8-8
record in 2010 and Hue Jackson after an
8-8 mark in 2011.
Allen said he didnt want to look back
at his decision last offseason to overhaul
an offensive system that had been suc-
cessful for two years with Hue Jackson
calling the plays.
Knapp implemented a West Coast sys-
tem with a zone blocking scheme instead
of the downeld passing, power running
scheme Jackson employed.
While Carson Palmer adjusted to the
change and became the second Raiders
quarterback ever to throw for 4,000
yards in a season, big-play running back
Darren McFadden reverted to his early
career struggles when he played in a
similar system.
After averaging more than 5 yards per
carry in each of the past two seasons
under Jackson, McFadden averaged just
3.3 yards per carry this season the
lowest ever for a Raiders back with at
least 150 carries in a season.
Without an effective running game the
Raiders scored more than four fewer
points a game than a year ago a major
part of their drop from eight wins the
past two seasons to just four this year.
I believe the zone scheme running
scheme is a productive running scheme,
Allen said. Obviously, we didnt have
the success that we needed to have and
there were a lot of factors that con-
tributed into that. Im not tied to a spe-
cic system. Im tied to trying to nd out
what our players can do really well and
try to put them in those positions to give
them a chance to have success. Im look-
ing for production and execution.
Allen said he wants to nd the right
coordinator rather than pick a certain
system. He said he would talk to senior
offensive assistant Al Saunders, who was
coordinator in 2011 under Jackson.
Raiders fire OC, 3 other assistants
SANTA CLARA As Jim Harbaugh
sent the 49ers into a mandatory three-
day break to rest their minds, rest their
bodies, San Franciscos coach and his
staff busily began
playoff preparations
for the NFC divi-
sional round in less
than two weeks.
That is, after he
took a moment to
congratulate his men
for another special
season. One that is
hardly finished in
everybodys mind.
The two-time reigning NFC West
champions (11-4-1) will now spend
much of their energy and efforts study-
ing the Washington Redskins the one
team among the Niners three possible
opponents that they have yet to face this
season. Green Bay and Seattle are the
other two who could visit Candlestick
Park for the Jan. 12 prime-time matchup.
Rarely one to look ahead by even a
day, Harbaugh referenced the road he
expects the team to take before seasons
end: reaching the Super Bowl after com-
ing so close last season. San Francisco
lost 20-17 in overtime of the NFC title
game to the eventual champion New
York Giants.
To be back-to-back division champs,
worthy champions of arguably the best
division in football again this year, I
think is quite an accomplishment,
Harbaugh said Monday. Now its a new
focus, a three-game focus, to get our
ultimate goal.
Theres another important job, too.
Harbaugh must gure out who will be
kicking eld goals the rest of the way.
David Akers struggled yet again Sunday,
missing wide left from 44 and 40 yards
before connecting on a 43-yarder and
26-yarder in a 27-13 win against
Arizona. Harbaugh said it is likely the
team will bring in a few kickers for
some tryouts, have some competition.
Akers, who made 44 of 52 attempts in
his sensational 2011 season, is just 29
for 42 this year. He is only 7 for 13 from
40-49 yards.
The 38-year-old Akers signed a three-
year contract as arguably the 49ers
biggest offseason acquisition ahead of
the 2011 season aside from the hiring of
Harbaugh. And he delivered at nearly
every opportunity until recently.
He had a 21-yard attempt blocked by
Red Bryant in a 42-13 loss at Seattle on
Dec. 23, and Richard Sherman returned
it 90 yards for a touchdown.
Such a dramatic decline for the veter-
an who surprised himself when he hit a
63-yarder in a season-opening win at
Green Bay after the ball bounced off the
crossbar. Akers called it about like a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
A six-time Pro-Bowler in his 15th
NFL season out of Louisville, Akers
scored 166 points last season far sur-
passing the 49ers previous best of 138
accomplished by Hall of Fame receiver
Jerry Rice in 1987.
Kickers go through, at times, slumps.
You see a guy go through it and some-
times hell come out of it quickly and
sometimes it lingers a little bit,
Harbaugh said. Have I been surprised
that he hasnt made those kicks? You
have to understand, thats the job of the

confidence, Wisconsin safety Shelton
Johnson said. I think that rubs off on the play-
ers as well. You just see, hes just the Don
sometimes when he walks around, because
you just know. He has a physical presence to
him when he walks in a room.
Over 16 seasons in Madison, Alvarez built
Wisconsins long-mediocre program into a
consistent contender and a three-time Rose
Bowl winner, most recently in the 2000 game,
a 17-9 victory over Stanford led by Heisman
Trophy-winning tailback Ron Dayne.
Alvarez sees similarities between his work
and the Stanford revitalization led coach
David Shaw, who could be in the early stages
of a similar program transformation in the Bay
Area. The Cardinal won the Pac-12 title to
advance to their third straight BCS bowl with
their third consecutive 11-win season, includ-
ing the last two under Shaw after Jim
Harbaugh left.
Such success was all but unthinkable just a
few years ago at the academic-minded school
that hasnt won the Rose Bowl since 1972, but
Shaw has the Cardinal believing they belong
in Pasadena.
Were grateful to be in this game where
every West Coast team wants to end their sea-
son, and we realize the opportunity weve got,
Shaw said. They did what they did to get
here, and theyre going to do that. Just like us,
were not going to change drastically. Thats a
disservice to the kids. Its going to be strength
against strength. Were going to do what they
Indeed, Wisconsin and Stanford have
remarkably similar approaches to their sport.
Both schools favor hard-nosed running games
with tailbacks Montee Ball and Stepfan Taylor
running behind mammoth offensive lines.
Both offenses are run by relatively inexperi-
enced quarterbacks: Stanford freshman Kevin
Hogan has beaten four ranked teams in his
four starts since taking over, while Wisconsin
senior Curt Phillips is a smooth game manag-
er who missed two full seasons with injuries
and only got his starting job in November.
Both defenses lack glaring flaws, and
Stanford is eager to show off the nations third-
ranked run defense. Both teams played numer-
ous close games this season, with Stanford
enjoying a bit more success than a Wisconsin
team that lost three overtime games.
We can see a lot of us in them, Stanford
offensive tackle David Yankey said. We both
like to run the ball, and were both just tough,
physical teams. It should be a great matchup to

kicker, put it through the uprights.
Also of added importance with
securing the NFCs No. 2 seed and
an extra week before opening the
playoffs is the chance to get Pro
Bowl defensive tackle Justin Smith
back into the mix after he partially
tore his left triceps muscle in a 41-
34 win at New England on Dec. 16.
Smiths 185-game streak without
missing a start ended at Seattle, and
Arizona pounded that right side of
the line at every opportunity with
Smith missing.
My thoughts are that you watch
the strength and how that comes
back, and if he can play, do his job,
defend himself and be effective,
Harbaugh said. He has made
progress each week, significant
progress. Hopeful, would be my
Harbaugh indicated the team
would not only rely on Smiths
word on whether he feels ready, but
also the doctors.
Nobody knows his body like a
player himself, Harbaugh said.
Im hopeful.
When it comes to the surprisingly
shaky kicking game, Harbaugh pro-
vided three potential scenarios
sticking with Akers, bringing in a
new kicker altogether or having two
kickers and letting them compete.
Whatever plan they go with, the
49ers will need more consistency
from that position going forward.
We want to make the right deci-
sion. Davids certainly in it,
Harbaugh said. Hes done a lot of
great things for us. Hes made a lot
of great kicks, big kicks. He knows
it, we know it. Those kicks in the
games, youve got to make those
kicks. There will always be a level
of competition around at any posi-
tion to nd who gives you the best
chance to win the next game.
Knowing how competitive Dave is,
I dont think hell have a problem

Yet Harbaugh offered a warning
of sorts to his players as 2013
approached not to get too excited
about what theyve done so far.
The celebration will be after the
Super Bowl, not New Years Eve,
the coach said. I hope guys are
smart, I hope theyre tame tonight. I

Athletic League Bay Division title, did her
best to ght back tears of joy. And after a cou-
ple silent seconds, Doss explained why the
tears were inevitable: Im just really proud of
them. Theyve really worked really hard for it.
Ive taken them out of their comfort levels,
Ive pushed them as far as they can go. There
are denitely times in the season when they
hated me because I was pushing and I was
pushing because I knew that we were talented
enough and we can do it. And the attitude the
whole season was, One game at a time. And
it worked.
This was a three-horse race all year along. The
defending champion Serra Padres are always
early front-runners and get the year started off
right thanks in large part to the Jungle Game
which remains the single-best game-day
atmosphere on the Peninsula.
Menlo School came on strong near basket-
ball seasons end and, when it comes to foot-
ball homecoming games, there isnt a better
experience than the Knights.
But as far as consistency throughout the
entire school season, the 2012 nod goes to
Gator Nation and Sacred Heart Prep. And it
isnt just the students parents, administra-
tors, little brothers and sisters SHPs
group of support at game time is second to
MANCE OF THE YEAR: I tend to judge
this honor a little differently. More than num-
bers, there has to be something inspiring
about a particular athlete during a specic
sporting contest. Off the top of my head, I can
go with Jennifer Kirst of Menlo-Atherton and
her hat trick against Capuchino; Ronald
Chens nal day in the San Mateo pool against
Hillsdale; Terilyn Moes swagger on the bas-
ketball court in the PAL tournaments nal
game against San Mateo High School.
But Serras Eric Redwood had a game for
ages against Bellarmine College Prep on Oct.
13. The man ran for 180 yards on 22 carries
and scored four touchdowns against arguably
the second-best team in Northern California.
Aside from the statistics, Redwood ran with
such conviction and heart that it was hard not
to root for No. 2 on that particular day. But the
cherry on top was the dignity and class he car-
ried himself with after being stopped in over-
time on a 2-point conversation that would
have gave the Padres the win. The man was all
apologies despite leaving his heart on the
eld. It truly was inspiring to watch.
is no way to pick just one, but were going to
try. You can go with Aldo Severson from Nat
Blood against Terra Nova in the closing sec-
onds in an Aragon make-or break upset;
Knowles almost-game-winning Goal of the
Year against Mitty in the CCS title game;
Henry Carusos alley-oop dunk against the
Monarchs that almost tore the roof off the
Serra gymnasium; Ben Burr-Kirvens com-
plete annihilation of a Soquel High School
player on a kickoff return; Chia Santiagos
opposite eld beauty of an RBI double in a
CCS seminal game against Soquel; Payton
Smith and her kill down the line to give SHP
the CIF NorCal championship.
But the moment that still has me thinking it
didnt quite happen was Freddy Avis
absolute bomb of a home run in Menlos loss
to Pacic Grove in the CCS Division IV base-
ball championship. In that game, Avis hit a
fourth inning pitch over the right centereld
wall at PAL Stadium in San Jose. Knights
head coach Craig Schoof agreed with me
after the game: It was the farthest ball weve
ever seen hit in a high school baseball con-
test. And Schoof has been around the sport a
lot longer than I have.
Its too hard too choose just one: Terilyn Moe
of Terra Nova is a local legend; the elding
and hitting of Capuchinos Jennifer Lewis that
almost carried the Mustangs to another CCS
title; Killigrew whose soccer team embodied
her mental toughness and swag; Sonia Abuel-
Saud, aka the heart and soul of a CCS and
NorCal championship volleyball team.
But the Daily Journal gave its highest ath-
letic honor to Burlingames Charlotte Pratt for
a reason. Pratt is an athlete with a magic scor-
ing touch and there wasnt a single occasion
during the water polo or lacrosse seasons
when the sports desk didnt come back to the
DJ ofces after watching her play and werent
in awe.
There were a lot of great ones: Justin Ewing
of Capuchino; Avis of Menlo; Nick Manesis
and his consistency for Terra Nova; Justin
Chang and his leadership for Menlo tennis;
and will we ever see a better golfer in these
parts than the Knights Andrew Buchanan.
But Im going Redwood for my 2012
choice. No one ran harder, with more heart
and against tougher competition than No. 2.

The Warriors have proved to be one of the
better squads in the NBA 20-plus games into
the season and projecting what theyve done
so far, should make the playoffs.
But if they truly belong, they need to get

WASHINGTON The Food and Drug
Administration on Monday approved a
Johnson & Johnson tuberculosis drug that is
the rst new medicine to ght the deadly
infection in more than four decades.
The agency approved J&Js pill, Sirturo, for
use with older drugs to ght a hard-to-treat
strain of tuberculosis that has not responded
to other medications. However, the agency
cautioned that the drug carries risks of poten-
tially deadly heart problems and should be
prescribed carefully by doctors.
Roughly one-third of the worlds popula-
tion is estimated to be infected with the bacte-
ria causing tuberculosis. The disease is rare in
the U.S., but kills about 1.4 million people a
year worldwide. Of those, about 150,000 suc-
cumb to the increasingly common drug-resist-
ant forms of the disease. About 60 percent of
all cases are concentrated in China, India,
Russia and Eastern Europe.
Sirturo, known chemically as bedaquiline,
is the rst medicine specically designed for
treating multidrug-resistant tuberculosis.
Thats a form of the disease that cannot be
treated with at least two of the four primary
antibiotics used for tuberculosis.
The standard drugs used to ght the disease
were developed in the 1950s and 1960s.
The antibiotics used to treat it have been
around for at least 40 years and so the bac-
terium has become more and more resistant to
what we have, said Chrispin Kambili, global
medical affairs leader for J&Js Janssen divi-
The drug carries a boxed warning indi-
cating that it can interfere with the
hearts electrical activity, potentially
leading to fatal heart rhythms.
Sirturo provides much-needed treatment
for patients who have dont have other thera-
peutic options available, said Edward Cox,
director of the FDAs antibacterial drugs
ofce. However, because the drug also car-
ries some signicant risks, doctors should
make sure they use it appropriately and only
in patients who dont have other treatment
Nine patients taking Sirturo died in compa-
ny testing compared with two patients taking
a placebo. Five of the deaths in the Sirturo
group seemed to be related to tuberculosis,
but no explanation was apparent for the
remaining four.
Despite the deaths, the FDA approved the
drug under its accelerated approval program,
which allows the agency to clear innovative
drugs based on promising preliminary results.
Last week, the consumer advocacy group
Public Citizen criticized that approach, noting
the drugs outstanding safety issues.
The fact that bedaquiline is part of a new
class of drug means that an increased level of
scrutiny should be required for its approval,
the group states. But the FDA had not yet
answered concerns related to unexplained
increases in toxicity and death in patients get-
ting the drug.
The FDA said it approved the drug based on
two mid-stage studies enrolling 440 patients
taking Sirturo. Both studies were designed to
measure how long it takes patients to be free
of tuberculosis.
Results from the rst trial showed most
patients taking Sirturo plus older drugs were
cured after 83 days, compared with 125 days
for those taking a placebo plus older drugs.
The second study showed most Sirturo
patients were cured after 57 days.
FDA approves first new tuberculosis drug in 40 years
Roughly one-third of the worlds population is estimated to be infected with the bacteria
causing tuberculosis. The disease is rare in the U.S., but kills about 1.4 million people a year
worldwide. Of those, about 150,000 succumb to the increasingly common drug-resistant
forms of the disease.
dangerously potent effects of dehydration
the morning after. But for many, its too late
for that.
Starting off 2013 with a hangover leads
most people to base their New Years resolu-
tions on avoiding alcohol. This may be a
future deterrent, but the current residuals at
hand may need immediate addressing.
The experts at some of San Mateo
Countys favorite watering holes have sug-
gestions on how to relieve the previous
nights indulgences.
Hair of the dog, also referred to as like
cures like, is the process of having another
spirited drink in the morning to, albeit it
briefly, stave off a hangover.
Cristina Goedde, co-owner of Half Moon
Bays San Benito House, fixes up the bars
well-known Bloody Mary in a matter of sec-
onds. There are mixed opinions about the
efficacy of alcoholic hair of the dog reme-
dies; however, with or without the booze, the
tomato juice and celery are full of replenish-
ing vitamins. Topped off with all of the tra-
ditional garnishments, Goeddes Bloody
Mary is prime in the hair of the dog catego-
ry. Goedde also recommends ginger beer as
a lighter morning-after drink.
Since drinking and hangovers frequently
go hand-in-hand, make sure the night
before was worth the pain! said San Benito
House patron Nancy Tinsley.
The winter holidays are marked by nights
of celebration and New Years tends to be
the most alcohol inducing of them all. So for
many, rolling up their sleeves on Jan. 1 and
working through the physical aftermath of a
long night is worth it.
Some of the worst hangover symptoms
revolve around dehydration, dizziness and
an upset stomach.
I take papaya enzymes. Its like a natural
Rolaid, it calms a nervous stomach, Tinsley
Marie Moreuil, bartender at Redwood
Citys 840 Wine Bar and Cocktail Lounge,
also concedes to the upset stomach pains as
a significant hangover challenge. She sug-
gests Coca-Cola, not diet, just plain old
Coke is good, Moreuil said.
Coke being her personal preference, she
also praises the new trend of a ginger ale and
bitters mix that can have a powerful effect
on negating a nauseated tummy.
It has something to do with the fizzy
water and the bitters which help ease the
stomach, Moreuil said.
Sonia Pahl, bartender at San Mateos
Swingin Door, makes her own offerings for
hair of the dog therapy; but when possible,
her age-old hangover remedy is to just sleep
it off. A late-night drinker can suffer from
alcohol-induced vitamin depletion in the
morning so taking vitamin B and C supple-
ments is advantageous, Pahl said. Mixing up
a water and Emergen-C cold and flu packet
containing vitamins and electrolytes will
help rehydrate you in the morning, Pahl
Regardless of the various hangover reme-
dies and myths that are out there, its impor-
tant for individuals to revive themselves in a
personally appropriate and health-conscious
manner. Drinking responsibly allows for

tinue to work on nding smarter ways to
cut spending next year.
The White House and Democrats ini-
tially declined the offer, preferring to
prevent the cuts from kicking in at the
Pentagon and domestic agencies alike.
Ofcials said they might yet reconsider,
although there was also talk of a short-
term delay in the reductions.
While the deadline to prevent tax
increases and spending cuts was techni-
cally midnight, passage of legislation by
the time a new Congress takes ofce at
noon on Jan. 3, 2013 the likely
timetable would eliminate or mini-
mize any inconvenience for taxpayers.
For now, more than the embarrassment
of a gridlocked Congress working
through New Years Eve in the Capitol
was at stake.
Economists in and out of government
have warned that a combination of tax
hikes and spending cuts could trigger a
new recession, and the White House and
Congress have spent the seven weeks
since the Nov. 6 elections struggling for
a compromise to protect the economy.
Even now, with time running out, par-
tisan agendas were evident.
Obama used his appearance to chastise
Congress, and to lay down a marker for
the next round of negotiations early in
2013 when Republicans intend to seek
spending cuts in exchange for letting the
Treasury to borrow above the current
debt limit of $16.4 trillion.
Now, if Republicans think that I will
nish the job of decit reduction through
spending cuts alone - and you hear that
sometimes coming from them ... then
theyve got another think coming. ...
Thats not how its going to work at least
as long as Im president, he said.
And Im going to be president for the
next four years, I think, he added.
Ofcials in both parties said agreement
had been reached to prevent tax increas-
es on most Americans, while letting rates
rise on individual income over $400,000
and household earnings over $450,000 to
a maximum of 39.6 percent from the cur-
rent 35 percent. That marked a victory
for Obama, who campaigned successful-
ly for re-election on a platform of requir-
ing the wealthy to pay more.
Ofcials said any agreement would
also raise taxes on the value of estates
exceeding $5 million to 40 percent, but a
late dispute emerged on that point as well
as on spending cuts. Democrats accused
Republicans of making a 11th-hour
demand to have the $5 million threshold
rise each year to take inflation into
account. GOP ofcials said the White
House had agreed to the proposal on
Sunday night, a claim administration
ofcials disputed.
Any compromise was also expected to
extend expiring jobless benets for 2
million unemployed, prevent a 27 per-
cent cut in fees for doctors who treat
Medicare patients and likely avoid a
near-doubling of milk prices.
Much or all of the revenue to be raised
through higher taxes on the wealthy
would help hold down the amount paid to
the Internal Revenue Service by the mid-
dle class.
In addition to preventing higher rates
for most, any agreement would retain
existing breaks for families with chil-
dren, for low-earning taxpayers and for
those with a child in college.
In addition, the two sides agreed to
prevent the Alternative Minimum Tax
from expanding to affect an estimated 28
million households for the rst time in
2013, with an average increase of more
than $3,000. The law was originally
designed to make sure millionaires did
not escape taxes, but ination has gradu-
ally exposed more and more households
with lower earnings to its impact.
To help businesses, the two sides also
agreed to extend an existing research and
development tax credit as well as other
breaks designed to boost renewable ener-
gy production. Details on those provi-
sions were sketchy.
Obamas remarks irritated some
Sen. John McCain of Arizona they
would clearly antagonize members of
the House.
There was no response from Speaker
John Boehner, who has been content to
remain in the background while
McConnell did the negotiating.
Some Democratic ofcials said that
with his comments, Obama was hoping
to ease the concerns of liberals in his own
party who feared he had given away too
much in the current round of talks over
Obama campaigned on a call for high-
er tax rates on income over $200,000 for
individuals and $250,000 for couples, far
lower than the $400,000 and $450,000
that Biden and McConnell have set.
Similarly, the pending agreement on
the estate tax would allow more large
estates to escape taxation than many
Democrats prefer.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Should you
fnd yourself involved in an incident where youre
tempted to respond to pettiness with the same, do
your best to rise above temptation and instead act
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- By sizing up

whom you thought unaware of your existence
instead has some very nice things to say about you.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Appearances wont
matter so much at present, but a good performance
will really count. Youll have little to fear if your
efforts and industry live up to your promises.

friends today, let this person know immediately that

minute to transform something questionable into

you. Youll be ready for this persons guile and will
easily circumvent his or her schemes.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Arousing the spirit
of cooperation in others is something you do best
when youre fully engaged. Dont hesitate to go after
the support of some enthusiastic allies if you need it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- When you are motivated
by unselfshness, any arrangement you take on is
likely to turn out a success. This is because you gain
strength from giving and not taking.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You are able to easily
adapt to unfamiliar people or groups. Anyone who
lacks your talent will be eyeing you with envy for
your skill.

to be intimidated by uncertainties or challenges will
only cause more problems, especially where your
work or career is concerned. Stay strong.
