Hill seeks more cap and trade funds for transit


Caltrains plans for electrification could benefit from senators proposal
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Caltrains efforts to accommodate growing ridership could


receive a much needed boost in
funding as state Sen. Jerry Hill
proposed legislation Thursday
calling for a redistribution of cap
and trade funds.

Jerry Hill

Hill, D-San
Mateo, is seeking to increase
funding from
the
states
greenhouse gas
reduction laws
by allocating
an additional
$300 million a

year to transit-related projects.


Theres such a direct connection between cap and trade and the
nexus between the creation of carbon and automobile traffic, with
40 percent of carbons coming
from automobile traffic and transportation. So if we can take more
vehicles off the road, we can solve
this problem a lot easier and a lot

better, Hill said. Its important


that every mechanism and tool be
used and maximized to get people
out of their cars and to use mass
public transit.
Hill introduced Senate Bill 8-X1
Thursday calling for the state to
double cap and trade funding from
10 percent to 20 percent toward
Transit and Intercity Rail Program

and increase spending on the LowCarbon


Transit
Operations
Program from 5 percent to 10 percent.
While the governors proposed
budget estimated the state would
receive about $2 billion in revenue from cap and trade auctions

BOSTON The last of Bostons


winter nightmare has finally melted
away.
Mayor Martin Walsh announced
Tuesday that Bostons once-massive
pile of filthy snow has officially dwindled to nothing. The pile accumulated
into a 75-foot tower of snow after a
record-breaking winter that dumped
more than 110 inches on the city.
The mound made Bostonians shiver
into the summer, but not because of the
temperature: It was laden more than 80
tons of garbage, transforming it into a
repulsive trash heap as the snow melted. Officials say two snowstorms
struck after residents put their trash out,
and it got swept up by plows.
The persistent pile prompted Walsh
to hold a contest for who could guess

A jugglers repertoire
Ben Farber to teach juggling at Washington Park for fitness event
By Kerry Chan
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

As a professional juggler practicing


the craft since fifth-grade, Ben Farber,
25, may have developed a mental edge
that helps him navigate and respond to
lifes challenges and obstacles with
readiness and tenacity.
Life is a juggling act and learning
how to juggle helps, said Farber.
Farber and his wife, Jessica have an
18-month-old daughter and knows far
too well the struggles of raising a family on the Peninsula.
Like the balls he passes back and
forth seamlessly between his right and
left hand, Farber, juggles classes at
Caada College and a multitude of odd
jobs and errands so he can pay bills
and be able perform and share the joy
of juggling.
Farber performs at Pizza My Heart on
Fourth Avenue in downtown San Mateo
every Tuesday and at birthday parties
throughout the year. On Saturday, July
18, Farber will be performing at a
Family. Fitness. Fun! event in
Burlingames Washington Park.
Juggling for people is a super
adrenaline rush, you feel this sense of
connection to your audience, and if
you do a good job, you can feel their
energy, the smile on their face, said
Farber.
While he enjoys the performance of
juggling, Farber is just as enthusiastic
to teach his passion with others. As
the world uses more technology,
everything is getting faster and people
need to be able to multitask and make
quick decisions to keep up, said Farber.
Juggling is just that, using both
sides of your body and brain at the

As a concerned dad, Farber thinks it
would be much safer if kids knew how
to juggle and learn to stay focused and
respond when they get their drivers

Farber points to studies that have
linked juggling with health benefits
such as improved eye-hand coordination, focus and increased concentration.
On Saturday, July 18, Farber is excited to show off his passion and talent in
a lineup of performers and fitness

Farber will be on site with 60 juggling balls, 20 diablos which are

State flexes its muscles in


water tussle with farmers
By Fenit Nirappil and Scot Smith
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

FRESNO California water regulators flexed their muscles on Thursday


by ordering a group of farmers to stop
pumping from a branch of the San
Joaquin River amid an escalating battle over how much power the state has
to protect waterways that are drying
up in the drought.
The State Water Resources Control
Board issued the cease and desist
order against an irrigation district in
Californias agriculture-rich Central
Valley that it said had failed to obey a
previous warning to stop pumping.
Hefty fines could follow.
The action against the West Side
Irrigation District in Tracy could be
the first of many as farmers, cities
and corporations dig in to protect
water rights that were secured long
before people began flooding the
West and have remained all but
immune from mandatory curtailments.
Ive made investments as a farmer
based on the rule of law, said David
Phippen, an almond grower in the
South San Joaquin Irrigation District.

A former San Mateo County sheriffs


deputy convicted of stalking his exgirlfriend and severely beating a
romantic rival in 2013 will be retried
on the charges based on new evidence,
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said
Thursday.
Judge Leland Davis granted a defense
motion for a new trial in June after
Deputy Colin Smiths ex-girlfriend
came forward with allegations that the
assault victim had abused her,
Wagstaffe said.
Smith, 44, had only dated the woman
for three months when she broke up
with him and decided to give her relationship with an ex-boyfriend another
chance.
The night of Aug. 16, 2013, and
early the next morning, days after the
breakup, prosecutors said Smith
stalked her outside of Redwood City

Richard Sauret demonstrates the irrigation system in his vineyard, which uses very
little water, in Paso Robles.
Now, somebodys changing the law
that we depend on.
Phippen said his grandfather paid a
premium price in the 1930s for hundreds of acres because it came with
nearly ironclad senior water rights.
Phippen said he takes those rights
to the bank when he needs loans to
replant almond orchards or install

new irrigation lines. He fears that


state officials are tampering with that
time-tested system.
In the water world, the pre-1914

home and threatened to break the door down. When she
answered, he stormed inside looking
for the other man, identified in a civil
complaint as Erik Hartelius, and found
him hiding in a bathroom. Prosecutors
said Smith brutally beat him, breaking
his nose and eye socket, in an unprovoked attack.
During a nine-day jury trial last year,
Smith argued that he was defending
himself against Hartelius, but the jury
rejected that and found him guilty of
felony assault causing great bodily
injury.

After the trial, the woman went to


police and reported that Hartelius had
abused her after the attack, information that could have bolstered Smiths
self-defense claim, Wagstaffe said.
But Wagstaffe said his office will
retry the case and he believes they will
still win.
There should be no special treatment for law enforcement, Wagstaffe
said.
In addition to the assault charge,
Smith was convicted of felony witness
intimidation and violating a restraining order for confronting the woman
while she was smoking a cigarette in
her car in December 2013. He yelled at
her and told her she was going to lose,
prosecutors said.
Smith remains out of custody on
supervised release and will return to
court Aug. 28 to set a date for a new
trial. His defense attorney was not
immediately available for comment
Thursday.

Senate to vote on revision to No Child education law


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON More than a


decade after No Child Left Behind Act
established annual testing and a bigger
federal role in the nations public
schools, the Senate is set to vote on
legislation to scale back significant
parts of the much-criticized 2002 law.

California tobacco bills reignite in special session
SACRAMENTO California Democratic lawmakers are
bringing back a package of tobacco regulation bills after
those proposals stalled earlier this month.
Lawmakers on Thursday announced six tobacco-related
bills to be considered as part of the Legislatures special
session on health care financing.
The major proposals seek to treat electronic cigarettes as
tobacco products and to raise the legal smoking age to 21.
Earlier versions had failed to advance out an Assembly committee after facing strong opposition from big tobacco
companies.
Supporters say stricter tobacco laws will save health care
costs, while opponents say greater restrictions would represent a government overreach.
A $2-per-pack cigarette tax is not included in the package, though proponents are cleared to begin gathering signatures for it to go before voters as a 2016 ballot measure.

Bill would let nannies kids attend schools nearby

Former sheriffs deputy to be retried for assault


By Scott Morris

Lawmakers planned an afternoon


vote Thursday to rewrite the law, a
week after the House voted to do the
same.
Co-sponsored by Republican Sen.
Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and
Democratic Sen. Patty Murray of
Washington, the measure would leave
in place the laws annual testing sched-

ule but would shift to states and local


districts greater control over whether
and how to use those tests to
assess the performance of schools,
teachers and students.
The bill also would prohibit the federal government from requiring or
encouraging specific sets of academic
standards, such as Common Core.

SACRAMENTO A bill heading to Gov. Jerry Brown


would allow the children of domestic workers to attend
schools in districts where their parents work.
It follows the high-profile case of a girl who was kicked
out of the wealthy suburban Orinda school district after the
district hired a private investigator to probe whether the
girl lived there.
SB200 by Democratic Sen. Ricardo Lara of Bell Gardens
won unanimous Assembly approval Thursday.
The bill says students meet school residency requirements
if they live with their parents at work at least three school
days a week.
The Orinda district relented and allowed the second-grader
to attend school near where she lived five days a week.
The Assembly also approved legislation Thursday requiring schools to have standards for investigating students
before hiring private investigators.

State bill ends grand jury hearings for police killings


SACRAMENTO The California Assembly has narrowly
advanced legislation to end the use of secret grand jury proceedings to investigate police shootings.
SB227 passed Thursday on a 41-to-33 vote, the minimum
needed. It now heads to Gov. Jerry Brown for consideration.
The legislation by Democratic Sen. Holly Mitchell of
Los Angeles is among several bills introduced in response
to nationwide protests over police slayings of unarmed
black men.
Grand juries did not bring criminal charges against officers who killed men in Ferguson, Missouri and Staten
Island.
Mitchell says the secret proceedings are unfair and not
transparent.
The California District Attorneys Association says grand
juries are more transparent and fair in California than in
other states.
There was no debate on the bill, but Republicans were
opposed and several Democrats withheld votes.

Assembly OKs warnings for Airbnb-type rentals


SACRAMENTO Legislation advancing in California
would require short-term rental housing websites including
Airbnb to warn users they may be violating their leases.
The Assembly on Thursday unanimously approved SB761
by Democratic Sen. Isadore Hall of Compton with 73 votes.
The bill is sponsored by the California Apartment
Association, which says vacation rentals put other tenants
in danger by bringing unscreened people into complexes.
SB761 requires Airbnb-type websites to have notices
saying room listings may put tenants at risk of legal action
or eviction. Some San Francisco tenants have received
eviction notices for violating prohibitions on short-term
renting.
Airbnbs terms and conditions already tell hosts to check
their leases, but they dont mention evictions.
The bill returns to the Senate for a vote on amendments
added for Airbnb to drop its opposition.

Woman pleads not guilty to beating


neighbor to death with baseball bat
A woman who police said admitted to beating her neighbor to death with a baseball bat
in San Mateo earlier this
month pleaded not guilty
to murder, San Mateo
County District Attorney
Steve Wagstaffe said.
Brenda Martinez, 40,
was arrested on July 4 after
police said she walked
into the police station at
about 8:30 p.m. and said
Brenda
she had killed her neighMartinez
bor, 66-year-old Ellen
Mackay.
Officers responded to the neighbors home
in the first block of North Claremont Street
and found her dead from head trauma from a
baseball bat, according to police.
Prosecutors said Martinez and Mackay got
into an argument in Mackays apartment.
Martinez was enraged, got a baseball bat and
allegedly hit Mackay numerous times in the
head. She started to flee but then decided to
turn herself in instead, prosecutors said.
She pleaded not guilty in court Wednesday.
Martinez is next scheduled to appear in
court on Aug. 24 to set a preliminary hearing
date.

DUI driver who killed


motorcyclist takes plea deal
A man who killed a motorcyclist in a crash
outside La Honda earlier this year pleaded
guilty Wednesday to vehicular manslaughter
while under the influence of alcohol, prosecutors said Thursday.
Marco Franco-Cuevas, 23, entered the plea
in the court of Judge Leland Davis in
exchange for a sentence of no more than two
years in prison, according to the San Mateo
County District Attorneys Office.
Franco-Cuevas was driving a white 2003
Chevrolet Impala east on state Highway 84
near Sylvan Way at about 3 p.m. on Feb. 14
when he took a curve too fast, lost control of
the car and collided head-on with a motorcyclist.
The motorcyclist, identified as 40-year-old
Matthew Langley of San Mateo, was ejected
from the bike and pronounced dead at the
scene. Neither Franco-Cuevas nor his two
passengers, his uncle and a 17-year-old boy,
were injured.
Franco-Cuevas showed signs of intoxication. Testing showed his blood-alcohol level
was .054 below the legal limit of .08
but prosecutors said he had taken the prescription psychiatric medication Abilify,
which should not be taken with alcohol.
His defense attorney, Alexander Cross, said
Thursday the blood alcohol screening wasnt
done until more than three hours after the
crash.
But Cross said that even if he had not been
drinking, the crash could have happened the
same way and a sober driver easily could have
lost control of the car going around that
curve. Franco-Cuevas has no prior criminal
record, Cross said.
He is extremely remorseful for what happened, he takes full responsibility, he said.
Franco-Cuevas has been in custody on
$250,000 bail since his arrest. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 18.

Jury convicts theater


shooter of murder
By Sadie Gurman
and Dan Elliott
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CENTENNIAL,
Colo.

Colorado theater shooter James


Holmes was convicted Thursday in
the chilling 2012 attack on
defenseless moviegoers at a midnight Batman premiere after jurors
swiftly rejected defense arguments
that the former graduate student
was insane and driven to murder by
delusions.
The 27-year-old Holmes, who
had been working toward his
Ph.D. in neuroscience, could get
the death penalty for the massacre
that left 12 people dead and dozens
of others wounded.
The initial phase of Holmes
trial took 11 weeks, but jurors
needed only about 12 hours over a
day and a half to find him guilty on
all 165 counts.
The same panel must now
decide whether Holmes should
pay with his life. Starting
Wednesday, they will hear what is
expected to be a months worth of
testimony over whether Holmes

deserves the death penalty.


For almost an hour, Judge
Carlos A. Samour Jr. read charge
after charge, reciting the name of
the victim, the offense and the
word guilty. Dressed in a blue
shirt and khakis and flanked by
his public defenders, Holmes
stood impassively with his hands
in his pockets the whole time.
The rest of the courtroom was
bursting with emotion. Even
before the verdict was read, jurors
passed around a box of tissues and
dabbed their eyes. The foreman
attended Columbine High School
during the 1999 shooting there
that left 13 dead.
When Samour read the first finding - that Holmes was guilty of
first-degree murder for killing 26year-old Jonathan Blunk, a father
of two who died throwing himself
in front of his girlfriend to shield
her from the barrage - numerous
victims families burst into sobs,
trying to stifle the noise by pressing tissues to their noses and
mouths.
As soon as you heard the first
guilty, we knew all the dominoes
were about to fall, said Tom

Sullivan, whose son Alex was
killed.
When Samour read the name of
another murder victim, Jessica
Ghawi, her mother, Sandy
Phillips, silently mouthed yes,
and her husband wrapped his arm
around her to pull her close.
Were very happy this animal,

this monster, will never see the


light of day, Phillips said later
outside court. It feels good to
have this weight off our backs.
Holmes parents, Arlene and
Robert, sat silently holding hands
throughout the verdicts. After the
final count was read, Arlene buried
her face in Roberts shoulder.

The verdict came almost three


years after Holmes, dressed head to
toe in body armor, slipped
through the emergency exit of the
darkened theater in suburban
Denver
and
replaced
the
Hollywood violence of the movie
The Dark Knight Rises with real
human carnage.

Congressional panels will probe Planned Parenthood video

Around the nation

By Alan Fram

Doctor: Months for George


H.W. Bushs fracture to heal

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The searing


political conflict over abortion
flared anew Wednesday as three
Republican-led
congressional
committees said they will investigate whether Planned Parenthood
is selling organs from aborted
fetuses.

House Speaker John Boehner,


R-Ohio, criticized the group and
said President Barack Obama
should condemn and end the practice. Other GOP lawmakers and
2016 presidential hopefuls joined
in, including some who said
Congress should end federal aid to
the organization.
The GOP offensive came a day
after an anti-abortion group circulated a video it made secretly

showing a Planned Parenthood


official discussing the disposal
of body parts from aborted fetuses.
When an organization monetizes an unborn child and with
the cavalier attitude portrayed in
this horrific video we must all
act, Boehner said in a brief written statement. He said Obama and
Health and Human Services
Secretary Sylvia Burwell should

denounce, and stop, these gruesome practices.


Planned Parenthood, which provides abortions and other reproductive health services, says it
legally helps women who want to
make not-for-profit donations of
their fetus organs for scientific
research. It says it makes no
money by donating the organs to
science, and says the video was
heavily edited.

GOP bill would undermine auto, rail safety regulations


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON At a time of
record auto recalls and high-profile train wrecks, Republicans are
working on legislation to roll
back safety regulation of the auto
and railroad industries.

A bill approved this week on a


party-line vote by a Senate committee brims with industry-sought
provisions that would block,
delay or roll back safety rules.
The measure is to be part of a
must-pass transportation bill that
GOP leaders hope to put to a vote

in the Senate as early as next


week.
They are under pressure to act

expires on July 31. Without a
cash infusion, the government
will have to delay highway and

transit aid to states.


One provision would block a
new Department of Transportation
rule requiring that trains hauling
crude oil are equipped with electronically controlled brakes that
affect cars all at the same time,
rather than sequentially.

PORTLAND, Maine Former


President George H.W. Bush fractured a bone in his neck when he
took a tumble at his oceanside
summer home, but he suffered no
neurological impairment and the
injury will be allowed to heal on
its own, which is expected to take
three to four months, officials said
Thursday.
Bush, at 91 the oldest living former president, remained hospitalized in fair condition a day after he
fell
at
his
home
in
Kennebunkport.
The fracture to his C2 vertebra,
the second one below the skull,
didnt impinge on his spine and
didnt lead to any neurological
deficits, spokesman Jim McGrath
said.

White House seeks support at


home and abroad for Iran deal T
By David Espo

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON At home and abroad, the


White House courted support for a landmark
nuclear deal with Iran on Thursday as congressional leaders in both parties pointed
toward a politically charged showdown this
fall over Republican attempts to scuttle the
agreement.
It blows my mind that the administration
would agree to lift the arms and missile bans
and sanctions, said Speaker John Boehner,
R-Ohio, referring to some of the provisions
in the complex accord.
He said the Republican-controlled
Congress would likely soon be on track to
pass legislation denying President Barack
Obama the ability to lift numerous financial
and other restrictions Iran currently faces.
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of

California became the


first prominent Democrat
in Congress to back the
deal, saying she is very
optimistic about our ability to support the president.
Obama has pledged to
veto any bill rejecting
Nancy Pelosi the agreement. Neither
Pelosi nor Boehner ventured a prediction on the final outcome.
The maneuvering in Congress unfolded as
Secretary of State John Kerry met with Saudi
Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir, coming
away without an immediate endorsement for
the deal.
We hope that the Iranians will use this
deal in order to improve the economic situation in Iran and to improve the lot of the
Iranian people and not use it for adventures
in the region, the Saudi diplomat said.

Spies in hot seat after breach


of an Italian surveillance firm
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LONDON A dramatic breach at an


Italian surveillance company has laid bare
the details of government cyberattacks
worldwide, putting intelligence chiefs in
the hot seat from Cyprus to South Korea.
The massive leak has already led to one spymasters resignation and pulled back the curtain on espionage in the iPhone age.
More than 1 million emails released
online in the wake of the July 5 breach show
that the Milan-based company Hacking
Team sold its spy software to the FBI and to
Russian intelligence. It also worked with
authoritarian governments in the Middle

East and pitched to police departments in


the American suburbs. It even tried to sell to
the Vatican all while devising a malicious
Bible app to infect religiously minded targets.
Its a mini-Snowden event, said Israelbased security researcher Tal Beery, likening the impact of the leak to the publication
of top secret NSA documents by former
intelligence worker Edward Snowden.
Beery said he, like others, had long suspected the worlds security agencies of hacking but was struck by the ubiquity of it
used on all continents, by both democracies
and dictatorships.

Letters to the editor


Burlingame office building
Editor,
Andrew Wallaces letter in the July
14 edition of the Daily Journal hit the
nail on the head Burlingame needs
more housing, not more ofce development. In fact, the Howard Mixed
Use area zoning specically allows
multi-family development.
According to a 2014 Palo Alto
online article discussing jobs-housing balance, the least balanced city
in the region is Palo Alto with a
3.13-to-1 jobs-to-housing ratio,
wrote Jay Thorwaldson. The closest
contender is Burlingame, with a 2.52to-1 ratio.
225 California Drive is an ideal
location for a mixed-use building
with housing above retail. Residents
could walk down, stop in the cafe for
a coffee and walk directly across
California Drive using the crosswalk
opposite Christies Restaurant to
catch Caltrain to the city or Silicon
Valley.
What upset me about the proposal
is not the height I think four stories with a roof garden helps bring
Burlingame into the 21st century, but
three stories of underground parking
way too much for such a great location. The Planning Commission
should insist that this transit-adjacent
development regardless of the uses
that occupy it, is a transit-oriented
development.Give the tenants
Caltrain and Samtrans passes, not
excessive free parking spaces.
Deliberations concerning this
development should be more than just
determining whats appropriate for
Burlingame but about meeting
Burlingames and Californias climate
action goals to reduce greenhouse gas
emissions by reducing driving. Thats
the objective of state law SB 375
the Sustainable Communities and
Climate Protection Act of 2008.

Editor,
To the best of my knowledge, the
tax being proposed was to be a utility
tax or general tax, the operative word
being utility (Poll: Tax increase
unlikely in the July 11 edition of the
Daily Journal). It is not project specic and only requires 50 percent to
pass. The revenue generated can be
used for a plethora of projects, as it
goes into the general fund. It is the
equivalent to a blank check, and
Belmont residents are not going to
write that check. The revenue could
even be used to pay salary increases.

about the hero status of El Chapo


Guzman in Sinaloa and elsewhere in
Mexico are not reassuring either. This
man has murdered over 100,000
Mexicans, often by gruesome forms
of torture that would sicken ISIS and
is the major supplier of the scourge of
hard drugs in the United States. For
him to be celebrated as a hero in his
home state speaks to the sickness
that has infected Mexican society,
and the trick is to welcome new immigrants while rejecting a big part of
their culture.
I reject Donald Trumps exaggerated
assertions about Mexico, but lets not
pretend there are very real ills plaguing that society, and a wish for immigrants not to import them is not
racist.

Caltrain should
adopt bike share program

Riding shotgun
in the 21st century

Editor,
Why doesntCaltrain explore a
bike share program to alleviate future
bike problems for their riders in this
growing Peninsula market?
The problems of overcrowded, bikelled trains could be offset by a wellmanaged bike share program like Citi
Bike in New York City, Indego in
Philadelphia, Divvy in Chicago,
Capital Bike in Washington, D.C.,
andmany other similar programs that
are now in place from Honolulu to
Salt Lake City, Denver, Kansas City,
Austin, Boston, Miami Beach and
other U.S. cities.
Bike share programs in Asia (especially China), East and West Europe
and the Americas seem to be gaining
more public approval and hands-on
use. A study in August 2014 found
that more than 600 cities worldwide
had a bike-sharing program. Why not
here?

Editor,
Derailments and deaths on Amtrak
and on other public transportation
systems throughout the United States
need special attention to avoid further
crashes, especially when there are
children involved. This may have
been prevented or reduced in severity
by having a second person in the
front seat as a co-driver, as is done
by airlines that have co-pilots.
With the distraction of cellphones,
computers, interruptions, food, boredom and fatigue, it seems necessary
to have a second set of eyes and ears
to look out for possible danger ahead,
especially when there are many passengers involved.
Stagecoaches of the past had a
shotgun next to the driver. We may
not have bandits to contend with, but
dangers occur nevertheless. No new
technology is needed except for a
seat. A big rig could use a co-driver as
well to look out for any hazard ahead
and alert the driver right away.
On trains and buses, rear-facing
seats are safest in case of a sudden
stop. And why dont we have seat
belts? Ive seen them only in Alaska
on the Denali road buses.
The public should be given appropriate notice of the risks on public
transportation: vehicles have no seat
belts, padding or air bags, vehicles
only have one driver and no backup,
and vehicles have no warning systems in the event of a crash, derailment or sudden stop.

Admittedly, a kernel of

Belmont needs a pause

Belmont residents are very aware of


our degraded pavement and perhaps
would be willing to fund a specic
detailed plan to upgrade our roads. We
were the rst to pass a Mello-Roos
for the original storm/drainage system. Belmont residents have historically supported school bonds because
the school district outlines the specic ways in which the money will be
spent and how spending will be monitored. Maybe if a bond or MelloRoos tax was proposed, there would
be more support. Both are project
specic and require a two-thirds vote
to pass.
I encourage the Belmont City
Council and nance director to continue investigating ways in which to
fund the pavement upgrades needed in
our city.

More specificity
needed for tax support

o say that tension is high in Belmont these


days would be quite an understatement. It would
be nice if the subject of this controversy was
unimportant, but its not. It has to do with zoning
changes and the ability or inability to remodel ones
home. That, in itself, can lend itself to controversy and
tension among neighbors but there is also a question
about how exactly the City Council passed the changes
and the impact of those changes.
Most who are reading this are familiar with the zoning
rules as the Daily Journal has been writing about it for
more than a year. However, for those who missed it,
here is the essence: The nearly 40 amendments included
easing parking requirements, increasing the
maximum home size for
larger lots, changing
the definition of protected trees and creating
a tiered review system
with modest additions
approved by staff while
larger projects and new
homes would have been
considered by the
Planning Commission.
After the changes
were passed, a citizens
group called Ask
Belmont Citizens gathered signatures to place
the matter on the ballot
to repeal them. The City Council had to decide if it
wanted to place the item on the ballot or suspend the
new rules and work on them further with more outreach.
It decided to not place it on the ballot and seemingly
began work Wednesday morning at the end of a long
meeting on scaling back some of the rules in a new ordinance that would have to go through the public process
again. That again raised the ire of some at the meeting
who believed the council was circumventing the will of
those in attendance who wanted more input. Either way,
trying to work on the changes at that point, and at that
hour, was a mistake even though the council likely
wanted to give some direction to staff. What may have
been a better idea was to call a special meeting soon so
that the council could listen to further public input and
make a determination of what the next steps might be.
At this point, however, there is a high level of tension about the process, about the changes, about what
was said by all sides and what will come next. While the
council spent a lot of work on the zoning changes, they
simply cannot move forward as they are.
A better tactic would be to start a citizens advisory
committee to bring everyone to the table and determine
where there might be enough common ground to move
forward. That committee can have representatives from
all stakeholders including council, staff, planning commissioners, former councilmembers, former planning
commissioners, neighborhood representatives and others. This formula has been tried before with success in
other cities. For example, the city of San Mateo gathered a citizens advisory committee for its Rail Corridor
Plan. That effort was long, but productive, and allowed
all to share points of view and ideas to create something
that worked for most. That committee worked hard to
produce a recommendation to the Planning Commission
and City Council and something similar could be tried in
Belmont.
It might seem as if the work the Belmont City Council
put into these changes was for naught, but thats simply
not true. There is likely a large portion of the changes
that will work for all and those can be completed, and
implemented, first. But no one will know unless it is
tried. It will take time and might be painful but, in the
end, gathering the input of all sides and working
together is the most useful tactic when determining what
will work for all. It is time to take a pause, reassess,
gather input, then move forward.
In the meantime, it would be helpful for everyone on
all sides to tone down the rhetoric and attacks and be
civilized to each other with the recognition that everyone is simply seeking changes that make the most
sense for them and those they know. Without that civility, the city has no chance of moving forward in a productive manner.

NEW YORK A new financial lifeline for Greece and strong corporate
earnings on Thursday helped push
U.S. stocks higher.
Stocks rose from the start, following a jump in major European indexes, as strong second-quarter results
from Netflix, eBay, Citigroup and
other companies fed the buying. By
the end of the day, nine of 10 industry
sectors of the Standard and Poors 500
index posted gains.
Investors have been worried about a
possible Greek financial collapse,
plunging Chinese stocks and Puerto
Ricos struggles to pay its debt. But
investors put those concerns aside as
upbeat second-quarter company
results suggested that earnings may
turn out better than expected. A key
gauge of anxiety among investors,
the VIX, was down nearly 40 percent
on Thursday from a week ago.
Some of the red flags in the market
have come down, and now the market
can look to earnings, said Kevin
Dorwin, managing principal of
Bingham, Osborn & Scarborough, a
San Francisco-based investment firm.
The S&P 500 gained 16.89 points,

climbed 64.24 points, or 1.3 percent,
to 5,163.18.
Stocks in Europe got a boost from
news that Greek lawmakers approved
tax hikes, cuts to pensions and other
measures demanded by its creditors.
That was followed by an announcement from the European Union that it
would provide a short-term loan to
Greece to help it cover its debts
through mid-August. And the
European Central Bank said it would
raise the amount of emergency liquidity available to the countrys banks.
Germanys DAX and Frances CAC40 each climbed 1.5 percent.
Among U. S. companies posting
earnings, Netflix was a big winner.
Its stock soared 18 percent, the
biggest gain in the S&P 500.
Investors were reacting to an
announcement late Wednesday that
the company had added far more
streaming-video subscribers than
projected in the second quarter, 3.3

million. The shares climbed $17.68


to $115.81.
Since the start of earnings season a
week ago, 38 companies in the S&P
500 have reported results and most
have beaten expectations. That has
raised hope that earnings wont be as
bad as many have feared. S&P Capital
IQ, a financial data provider, is predicting that earnings at companies in
the S&P 500 will fall 3.8 percent from
a year earlier.
Earnings expectations may be low,
but if today is any indication, threequarters of the companies will beat,
said Jack Ablin, chief investment
officer of BMO Private Bank.
Citigroup climbed $2.13, or 3.8
percent, to $58.59 after announcing
profits had rebounded in the second
quarter from a year earlier, when the
bank had recorded a huge legal settlement for its role in the housing bubble and financial crisis.

Googles 2Q signals new era of austerity with new CFO


By Michael Liedtke
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO After years of big


spending on risky projects that CEO Larry

Page proudly hails as moonshots,


Google may be launching into a new orbit
of financial discipline.
Investor hopes for a more austere Google
are largely tied to the arrival of a new chief

financial officer, Ruth Porat. She joined


Google in late May, about two-thirds of
the way through the Internet companys
second quarter. Thursdays release of
Googles report covering that period indicates that Porat already may be shaking
things up.
Excluding stock compensation expense
and several other items, Google earned
$6.99 per share topping the average
estimate of $6.70 per share among analysts surveyed by FactSet.
That ended six consecutive quarters in
which Googles earnings missed analyst
estimates, which steer investors perceptions about publicly held companies.
Investors were delighted with the breakthrough and Porats encouraging remarks
about reining in Googles expenses.
Googles stock soared $68.25, or 11 percent, to $670.03 in extended trading after

the numbers came out. If the shares behave


similarly in Fridays regular trading, it
would mark a new high for the stock,
which reached its previous peak of
$615.03 nearly 17 months ago.
Its like, Wow, look Ruth is already
doing her thing, said BGC Financial analyst Colin Gillis.
Google could have been making more
money all along if the growth in its
expenses hadnt consistently been rising
faster than its revenue, Gillis said.
The companys rising costs have been
driven primarily by a hiring spree and its
commitment to moonshots that have little or nothing to do with its main business
of Internet search and advertising. The list
of far-flung projects include self-driving
cars, Internet-beaming balloons, medical
research and even a recently launched initiative to change the way cities operate.

Google self-driving car has first injury accident


By Justin Pritchard
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES Google Inc. revealed


Thursday that one of its self-driving car prototypes was involved in an injury accident
for the first time.
In the collision, a Lexus SUV that the tech
giant outfitted with sensors and cameras was
rear-ended in Googles home city of
Mountain View, where more than 20 prototypes have been self-maneuvering through
traffic.

Citigroup results jump after


a big legal charge a year ago
NEW YORK Citigroups profits
rebounded in the second quarter from the same
period a year earlier, when the bank recorded
a huge legal settlement with regulators.
The bank said Thursday that it earned
$4.57 billion after payments to preferred
shareholders as the bank cut expenses
across the board, sharply higher than the
$102 million it earned a year earlier.
Citis second-quarter profits were basically erased last year after the bank recorded
$3.8 billion in costs related to settling
charges over its role in the housing bubble
and subsequent financial crisis.
On a per-share basis, Citi earned $1.51,
compared with 3 cents a year earlier.

The three people on board complained of


minor whiplash, were checked out at a hospital and cleared to go back to work following the July 1 collision, Google said. The
driver of the other car also complained of
neck and back pain.
In California, a person must be behind the
wheel of a self-driving car being tested on
public roads to take control in an emergency. Google typically sends another
employee in the front passenger seat to
record details of the ride on a laptop. In this
case, there was also a back seat passenger.

Playoffs heat up summer league


San Bruno, SSF ride
strong pitching into
Joe D postseason

San Carlos Joe DiMaggio


survives tight race in
South Peninsula League

By Terry Bernal

DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

By Will Johnston

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The Joe DiMaggio South Peninsula


League went down to the wire this season.
Entering into Wednesdays regular-season
finale, all three playoff qualifiers from the
four-team league had yet to be decided.
While Half Moon Bay (11-8) and
Burlingame (9-9) clinched the first two
playoff berths over the weekend, the thirdplace qualifier wasnt determined until San
Carlos upended the S. F. Cardinals 21-5
Wednesday night at Burton Park.
Entering into play Wednesday, third-place
San Carlos was clinging to a half-game lead
over Foster City. Still, San Carlos needed a
win to advance to the postseason, as in the
event of a tie in the standings, Foster City
would have been granted the playoff berth,
having won the three-game season series
with San Carlos.
All four teams in the South Peninsula
League finished within three games of one
another. Half Moon Bay (11-8) won the
league title, finishing one game ahead of
second-place
Burlingame
(10-9).
Burlingame edged third-place San Carlos in
the standings by one game.
Every year its a tight race, Burlingame
coach Shawn Scott said. The competitiveness, thats what makes it fun.
Burlingame maintained a first-place
standing for much of the year, but faltered by
losing four of its last five games. The team
posted a 5-4 record against South Peninsula
opponents this season, sweeping the season series with last-place Foster City.
Burlingame split with North Peninsula
opponents, including a 1-0 win over San
Bruno June 25 at Washington Park.

Pacifica and San Bruno Joe DiMaggio


keep slugging it out in the North Peninsula
League.
The rivals wound down the 2014 campaign with a flourish, when San Bruno
swept Pacifica on the final day of the
Peninsula League playoffs to advance to the
Joe DiMaggio World Series.
This year, the two teams finished with
identical records atop the North Peninsula
League, but Pacifica (15-4) earned the
tiebreaker by winning the season series
with San Bruno. The finish is critical as
league-champion Pacifica earned a bye into
the Joe DiMaggio World Series beginning
July 23 in Napa at Justin Siena High School
Now, San Bruno (15-4) is poised to get
back to the Joe DiMaggio World Series as it
hosts the opening round of the Peninsula
League playoffs beginning Friday at Lara
Field.
The cornerstone of San Brunos success
has been the reunited pitching tandem of
Rory McDaid and Joe Galea. The two fronted a formidable pitching staff at Capuchino
in 2014. This season, McDaid established
himself as a right-handed starter in his
freshman season at Caada Collge. The lefthanded Galea, a year younger than McDaid,
was a senior at Cap, where he was the
Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division
strikeout king.
This is probably the deepest pitching
staff Ive had in years, San Bruno manager
Edgar Hernandez said.
Another Capuchino alum, shortstop Kyle
Patterson, has been a presence at the plate.

two shots off the lead in the first
round of the British Open.

Jordan Spieth played like he had a
Grand Slam to win. Dustin

to settle.
The two main characters from
Chambers Bay brought their
games across eight time zones and
an ocean Thursday and set the tone
at St. Andrews for what could be
another riveting battle at the
British Open.

the inward nine
and closed with
a birdie for a 5under 67 that
put him two
shots out of the

Johnson,
whose three-putt from 12 feet on
the final hole cost him a shot at
the U.S. Open, looked as daunting
as ever. He simply overpowered
the Old Course with such force that
he hit wedge into 10 of the par 4s
and had an eagle putt on another.

With a pair of big par saves on the


tough closing holes, he played
bogey-free for a 65 and for at least
a day made good on a warning he
made earlier in the week.
Asked about Spieths chances to
sweep the four majors, Johnson
said, Well, Im playing the next

SEC to toughen
transfer rules
By John Zenor
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HOOVER, Ala. The Southeastern Conference has taken


the high road when it comes to domestic violence, aiming to
keep alleged abusers off their rosters even if it means they land
in a rival league.
Its a rare move that could put the SEC, which won seven
straight national titles from 2006-2012, at a competitive disadvantage in some cases. So far, no other conference has put a
similar rule into effect.
SEC schools passed a rule in May barring the signing of any
athlete disciplined for serious misconduct at another college
stop. The new rule defines a serious offense as sexual assault,
domestic violence or other forms of sexual violence.
Domestic violence advocate Katherine Redmond Brown said
she was surprised and pleased that it was the SEC, known for
its crazy good competition, that first took this step.
The message was long overdue because the NCAA has
stayed relatively silent on the issue for years, said Brown,
founder of National Coalition Against Violent Athletes.
Basically it was up to the conferences and individual schools
to do something.
To be honest, I never expected that it would be the SEC that
would be the first to draw this line.
It wasnt a coincidence that the SEC adopted the rule this
year. Defensive lineman Jonathan Taylor was dismissed from
Alabama after his arrest on a domestic violence charge a couple of months after signing. The woman in the case later
recanted her story, but Taylor had already been kicked out of
Georgia following a similar arrest.
Georgia proposed the new rule.
That one was pretty cut and dry, said Bulldogs coach Mark
Richt, adding that he wasnt the one making the call to propose the rule.
Alabama coach Nick Saban said he doesnt regret signing
Taylor and that Taylor didnt really get the kind of due process
before he was judged as maybe any person should. He added,
however, that Taylor was signed under a zero tolerance policy.
But I do think that this is an emotional issue thats very,
very complicated, Saban said. Its against the law, and we
respect the law, and we will continue to do things that respect
the law.
I think that ... we should be creating as many opportunities
to try to solve this problem and use this as an opportunity to
try to solve this problem with young people, male and female
alike, because this is an issue across the board with any emotional relationship.
Beyond Taylor, the rule came after much-publicized domestic
violence cases in the NFL, including Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice and Dallas defensive end Greg Hardy. Pro
leagues across sports have grappled with the question of how
to treat players who face domestic abuse allegations in the
wake of the NFL cases.
Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott, one of the
leagues most high-profile players, said it was a line that needed to be drawn.
Im not going to be shy to say that maybe you shouldnt
play college football again with a domestic violence issue,
Prescott said. We shouldnt have things like that in this day
and time. As men, we need to get better and get past it.
South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said its a no-brainer:
Ive always had a rule as a coach that if you ever hit a girl,
youre finished.

Alps last major obstacle for Tour leader


By John Leicester
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PLATEAU DE BEILLE, France One


mountain range completed, one more to go.
Only the Alps loom as the last major
obstacle between Chris Froome and a second Tour de France victory in Paris.
His rivals tried and failed to make the
British rider and his super-strong Sky team
wilt on the toughest and last day of
climbing in the Pyrenees
on Thursday, on Stage 12
won
by
Joaquim
Rodriguez of Spain, who
gritted his teeth in driving rain on the final
climb for his second
stage win.
With those mountains
that straddle France and
Chris Froome Spain behind them, the
opportunities for podium
contenders to eat into Froomes comfortable
race lead are starting to run out. That might
make them only more dangerous. They could
take bigger risks, like speeding hell for
leather on downhill roads, in hopes that
Froome might crash, or gang up on him, as
they sought to on Thursdays steep final
ascent.
There are only a certain amount of opportunities before we get to Paris, Froome
said. Weve just got to expect everything
to be thrown at us.
But to get to the 2013 champion,
Froomes rivals must first get past his teammates. And that is a problem.
The big budget of his Sky team has
bought the best help money can buy, riders
so strong they could lead other teams if they
werent working for Froome.
They ride hard at the front, controlling the
race. They allow only those riders with no
hope of victory in Paris like Rodriguez
to escape up the road, because theyre

finish on the Champs-Elysees.
Rodriguez was part of a group of 22 riders
none of them podium contenders that
broke away shortly after the start in
Lannemezan, a Pyrenees town of 6,500
inhabitants, whose signature dishes include
black Bigorre pork and an almond cake
named after bandits.
The 195-kilometer (121-mile) trek to the
Plateau de Beille, which draws cross-country
skiers when it snows, took the Tour up four
increasingly high ascents, 53 kilometers
(33 miles) in total.
Rodriguez made his move halfway up the
final 16-kilometer (10-mile) uphill grind,
wheeling around world champion Michal
Kwiatkowski in a switchback, and riding
alone to the finish. He celebrated by waving
a pointed finger like John Travolta dancing
in Saturday Night Fever, and thrust both
arms in the air. The leader of the Katusha
team also won a shorter uphill finish on
Stage 3.
Rodriguez started the day 19th overall,
trailing Froome by more than 20 minutes.
His winning ride moved him up to 15th but,
at 13:45 off the lead, hes still not a podium
threat.
The handful of riders who are, Froome and
his team watch like hawks. Alberto
Contador, Nairo Quintana and Vincenzo
Nibali, his biggest rivals before Froome
crushed them on the first day in the

Pyrenees, tried testing him on the final


ascent, taking turns with bursts of acceleration. But Richie Porte and Geraint Thomas,
Froomes guardians when the roads veer
sharply uphill, and the race leader himself
reeled in the challenges.
Thomas is riding so impressively that a
podium double might even be possible for
Sky in Paris. Thomas is fifth overall, less
than a minute behind Quintana in third, and
just over a minute behind Tejay van
Garderen, the American leader of the BMC
team who is proving resilient in second
place.
But Froome remains in a class of his own.
He bared his teeth on the last climb, with a
turn of speed that shook off all but Quintana
before the Colombian and other rivals
caught him again.
I was just testing the legs, Froome said.
His lead of 2:52 over Van Garderen and
3:09 over Quintana could comfortably carry
him to victory in Paris if his rivals cant
find ways to claw back time on the four
Alpine stages, the last two particularly
daunting.
Quintana vowed to try.
Hes human like the others, the
Movistar team leader said.
Skeptics arent so sure. Froomes dominance is raising eyebrows and questions in a
sport where trust remains in short supply,
after Lance Armstrongs era of systematic
doping.
Like an unwanted ghost, the American
who was stripped of his seven Tour victories
returned on Thursday to the fringes of the
race, on a money-raising ride. He and Geoff
Thomas, a former footballer raising funds to
fight blood cancer, are riding two stages of
the Tour route together, one day ahead of the
race. Tour racers were largely indifferent, and
Armstrongs presence wasnt felt at the race
itself.
Podium contenders should be able to take
something of a breather before the Alps.
The next four stages take the Tour on a westto-east swing. They are hilly but not hugely
mountainous.

Burn on the opening hole, made only one
birdie and shot 76.
Guys have been shooting good numbers, said Woods, a two-time Open champion at St. Andrews. Unfortunately I did not
do that. Instead, he was headed for a missed
cut for the third time in his last four majors.
The afternoon wave suffered in chill and
wind so strong that Phil Mickelson hit driver and 3-wood and didnt reach the 465-yard
13th hole. He said he had to hit 5-iron for
his third shot on the par-5 14th. Johnson

one heck of a ride in the second half of the
season.
There is a little more spread in the NL,

Philadelphia owns the worst at 29-62. Other

Mickelson made only one bogey on the
back nine and shot 70. He called the conditions fun, though his smile might not last
if the morning group doesnt face the same
conditions.
We were at a significant disadvantage
today, Mickelson said. And hopefully, if
were able to play an entire day tomorrow, it
will even itself out.
The first 26 groups had an average score
of 71. 46. The last 26 groups averaged
72.62.
Rickie Fowler, coming off a victory in the
Scottish Open, said the final seven holes
was hanging on for dear life. He made two
bogeys, one eagle and 15 pars for a 72.
The forecast was for rain early Friday and
wind calming as it clears, followed by
stronger gusts in the afternoon. Saturday
could have gusts approaching 40 mph.
Any duel between Spieth and Johnson is
void of animosity. They played in the same

an opening round at a regular PGA Tour

Former FIFA VP Webb


extradited to the U.S.
By Graham Dunbar
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Former FIFA Vice President


Jeffrey Webb has been extradited to
the United States following his
arrest in Switzerland on racketeering and bribery charges filed by
American prosecutors.
The Swiss Federal Office of
Justice said Thursday the man was
extradited a day earlier after 50 days
of detention.
He was handed over to a threeman U.S. police escort in Zurich
who accompanied him on the flight
to New York, the ministry said in a
statement.
Two people familiar with the case
identified the defendant as Webb
and confirmed he has been brought
to the United States. The people,
who spoke on condition of
anonymity because they were not
authorized to discuss the case,
declined to disclose his exact location.
Webb, who is from the Cayman
Islands, was president of the CONCACAF, soccers governing body
for North and Central America and
the Caribbean, and a FIFA vice
president at the time of his arrest.
A total of 14 men nine soccer
officials and five marketing executives were indicted by the U.S.
Justice Department in May, including former FIFA vice president Jack
Warner, who is resisting extradition from Trinidad and Tobago.
Webb promised reform when he was
elected in 2012 to succeed Warner
as president of CONCACAF.
A further four, including former
FIFA executive committee member
Chuck Blazer of the United States
and two sons of Warner, had their
guilty pleas unsealed in May.
They are alleged to have taken
part in a racketeering conspiracy
paying bribes of more than $150
million over a 24-year period. The
payments were tied to the award of

Uruguayan soccer great
Alcides Ghiggia dies at 88
MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay
Alcides Edgardo Ghiggia, the
Uruguayan soccer great who scored
the late winning goal in a stunning
2-1 victory over Brazil in the 1950
World Cup final, has died. He was 88.
The secretary general of the
Uruguayan Football Association,
Alejandro Balbi, announced that

broadcast and
hosting rights
for the World
Cup, continental
championships
in
North and South
America, and
regional club
Jeffrey Webb tournaments.
Another of
the arrested was Aaron Davison,
president of the marketing company Traffic Sports USA, who is subject to home detention at his residence in Florida. A day ahead of a
status conference in his case in federal court in Brooklyn, prosecutors
sent a letter to U.S. District Judge
Raymond J. Dearie informing him
that Davidson has been involved in
plea negotiations.
The government said it anticipates audio recordings in multiple
languages and records produced
to the United States by foreign
countries pursuant to mutual legal
assistance requests will be part of
discovery in Davidsons case.
Prosecutors also said they are coordinating with FIFAs counsel to
notify all 209 national federations
of the proceedings.
All seven men were arrested on
May 27 in dawn raids on a luxury
hotel in Zurich by Swiss federal
police at the request of American
prosecutors.
They include FIFA vice president
Eugenio Figueredo of Uruguay, who
like Webb was suspended from soccer activity by FIFAs ethics committee.
The others are Jose Maria Marin,
who led Brazils 2014 World Cup
local organizing committee;
Eduardo Li, an elected member of
FIFAs executive committee and
president of Costa Ricas soccer
federation; FIFA staffer Julio
Rocha, a development officer from
Nicaragua; Venezuela federation
president Rafael Esquivel; and

Costas Takkas, a Briton who works


for Webb.
Extradition hearings are being
held by Zurich cantonal police in a
process expected to finish by early
September, Swiss justice office
spokesman Raphael Frei told the
Associated Press on Thursday.
Appeals to Switzerlands federal
criminal court and supreme court
can extend the cases by several
months.
Webb and Figueredo were named
in the indictment among several
men who have already shared in
bribe payments of at least $40 million linked to broadcast rights for
four editions of the Copa America
tournament.
Blazer admitted sharing in a $10
million bribe scheme with Warner
and a third FIFA voter to support
South Africas successful bid for the
2010 World Cup. South African
officials asked FIFA to transfer the
money through the governing
bodys accounts.
U.S. authorities have said more
indictments could follow, and FIFA
President Sepp Blatter is a target of
the widening case.
Under pressure from the investigation and a separate Swiss federal
probe of money laundering linked
to FIFAs award of the 2018 and
2022 World Cups,
Blatter
announced on June 2 that he
intends to leave office.
Blatter, who denies wrongdoing,
has not attended FIFA business in
nations that have extradition
treaties with the U.S.
On Monday, he will chair an
executive committee meeting in
Zurich that is likely to decide on an
election date for FIFAs member
federations to replace him as president.
Blatter is expected to travel to
Russia next week to oversee the
2018 World Cup qualifying draw on
July 25 in St. Petersburg.

Alcides Ghiggia Brazilians fully
expected to win
before about 200,000 fans at Rios
Maracana stadium. Even a draw
would have given Brazil the title.
The loss is still known in Brazil at

Ghiggia also set up Juan

Only three people have silenced

the goal. The Pope, Frank Sinatra

He was the last surviving
Uruguayan player from the match and
poignantly, he died on the 65th
anniversary of the game. When he
turned 80 he was honored by the
Uruguayan congress, still a national
hero a half decade later.

Kurdish fighters besiege
IS gunmen in Syrias Hassakeh city
BEIRUT Kurdish fighters besieged members of the
Islamic State group Thursday in the northeastern Syrian
city of Hassakeh as they pushed forward under the cover of
airstrikes by the U.S.-led coalition, an activist group and
the main Kurdish militia in Syria said.
Kurdish fighters have been on the offensive in northern
Syria since January, capturing large areas from the extremist group and controlling a long stretch along the border
with Turkey.
The IS group attacked several government-held southern
neighborhoods in Hassakeh last month and troops have
since failed to retake the areas. YPG fighters joined the battle, recently capturing several villages south of Hassakeh.
Syria-based Kurdish official Mustafa Bali said members of
the Peoples Protection Units, or YPG, have cut all the
roads linking Hassakeh with nearby IS strongholds in the
province.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the YPG
said Kurdish fighters captured a juvenile prison and a power
station south of Hassakeh on Thursday.
Daesh fighters are besieged inside the city, Bali said by
telephone using an Arabic acronym to refer to the Islamic
State group. The aim of YPG is to liberate Hasssakeh.

Somali militant leader,


others killed in U.S. drone strike
MOGADISHU, Somalia A senior commander and other
members of the Islamic extremist group al-Shabab have
been killed in a U.S. drone strike in southwestern Somalia,
Somali and U.S. officials and a militant commander said
Thursday.
The attack Wednesday night near the rebel-held town of
Bardhere was an operation planned by U.S. and African
Union forces, according to a U.S. official who insisted on
anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the
press. The joint force was moving toward the town when
rebels advanced on them, he said. A U.S. drone fired on the
rebels killing and wounding a number of them, he said.
One of those killed was al-Shabab commander Ismael
Jabhad, a Somali intelligence official told the Associated
Press. The official insisted on anonymity because he was
not authorized to speak to the press.
An al-Shabab official named Abu Mohammed confirmed
the attack but gave no details.

Netanyahu, British FM spar


over Iran deal disagreements
By Tia Goldenberg
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

JERUSALEM Israels prime minister and the British foreign secretary


publicly sparred over the nuclear deal
with Iran on Thursday, veering off prepared comments to exchange sharply
different positions toward the agreement.
The awkward encounter reflected
two world views: Western powers
hope the deal can eventually moderate
Iran and bring it back into the international community, while Israel
believes Iran will use any newfound
legitimacy as cover to strengthen
militant groups and further destabilize the region.
Prime
Minister
Benjamin
Netanyahu battled unsuccessfully to
scuttle what he called a bad deal
emerging in the talks, insisting that
any sanctions relief would provide
Iran with a cash bonanza that will
make it easier for the Islamic Republic
to continue to support Israels enemies, including the Lebanese
Hezbollah Shiite militant group and
the Palestinian group Hamas, and
meddle in proxy conflicts in the
Middle East.
Since the deal was announced,
Netanyahu has condemned it as a
stunning historic mistake, saying
Israel was not bound by the agreement and suggesting that military
action
remains
an
option.
Opposition legislators have rallied
around Netanyahu against the deal,
and Netanyahus chief political rival,
Isaac Herzog announced he would
travel to the U.S. to lobby for a compensation package to insure Israels

military advantage in the region.
In his appearance with Foreign
Secretary Philip Hammond on
Thursday, Netanyahu expressed his
concern that the deal does not seek to
link sanctions relief to Irans conduct.
We would have wanted to see a deal
that says the following: Iran, you
will get the easing on the restrictions
on your nuclear program, and you will
get sanctions relief if you change your
behavior first, Netanyahu told
Hammond, saying he found it perplexing that the deal does not address
repeated calls by Iranian leaders for
Israels destruction.
He said that by easing sanctions and
giving Iran hundreds of billions of
dollars in relief in the coming years,
Iran would foment more terrorism

through its proxies in the Middle East


and beyond. Hezbollah and Hamas
possess vast arsenals of rockets and
missiles funded or produced by Iran.
Arab countries similarly have been
skeptical of the deal, and also worry
that it gives Iran the means and an
implicit green light to expand its
influence in the region.
But the Western countries that negotiated the deal hope the accord may be
the first step in steering Iran toward a
more conciliatory path that may eventually end decades of animosity.
We are not naive about this,
Hammond said. We understand that
our many disputes with Iran about its
regional conduct will remain and will
have to be dealt with in the months
and years to come.

Ant-Man is smaller

If ever there was a sworn devotee


a chanting, face-painted worshipper of the Big, it is Marvel.
So the prospect that Ant-Man, the
miniscule Mighty Mouse of
Marvels stable of powerhouses,
might join the brawny big-screen

has long held some pleasing irony.


But that enticement Oh, if it was

the helicarrier window when, just
weeks before shooting was to commence, Edgar Wright, the British
blender of genre and comedy who
had worked on the project for eight

AT THE SAN FRANCISCO AIRPORT
MUSEUM. California was a West Coast
center for the development of aviation from
the earliest years of flight, and during the
late 1920s was home to numerous regional
airlines; yet, most operated briefly. By the
time of the Great Depression, the majority
either went bankrupt or merged into larger,
trunk-carrier airlines. With the economic
boom of the 1950s and '60s, the demand for
economical, California-based commuter air
service exceeded any previous era. As a
result, a number of small, regional carriers
were formed and operated successfully within the state. These included PSA (Pacific
Southwest Airlines) in San Diego, Air
California (later AirCal) in Newport Beach,
and Pacific Air Lines (later Air West and
Hughes Airwest) in San Francisco. The legacy of these California commuter airlines is
captured by the crew uniforms, airplane
seats, beverage service carts, flight bags,
ticket jackets and other artifacts presented

Game of Thrones leads Emmy


Award nominations with 24
By Lynn Elber
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WEST HOLLYWOOD The Emmys, televisions highest-profile awards, could have


seized the moment with Thursdays nominations to fully acknowledge the wealth of
diverse talent adding to the mediums
vibrancy and relevance.
There was recognition of stellar actresses
Taraji P. Henson and Viola Davis. Henson,
who plays the sexy, formidable matriarch
on hip-hop drama Empire and Davis, a
brilliantly cutthroat attorney on How to
Get Away with Murder, are competing for
drama series actress honors.
The nominations set up the possibility of
a history-making outcome: Its one of the
few top acting categories that has only been
awarded to white actresses.
I gotta win! I gotta win for history! an
exuberant Henson said when asked about the
prospect during an Empire panel in May.
But there were glaring omissions as well
including a shut-out in major awards for
Empire, a breakout hit that makes a black
family the rare focus of a TV drama, other
than Hensons bid.
Academy voters also snubbed Latina
actresses Gina Rodriguez, a Golden Globe
winner for Jane the Virgin, and Sofia
Vergara, a four-time nominee for Modern
Family.
Queen Latifah is in the running for her
compelling portrayal of blues singer Bessie

Smith in the film Bessie. Its 12 nominations included best TV movie and acting
nods for MoNique and Michael Kenneth
Williams.
This is what its supposed to be like. You
should recognize actors and creative people
in this industry from every level of all colors who do great work, Latifah said.
The realm of gender identity also received
some attention, with Transparent and star
Jeffrey Tambors transsexual portrayal earning best comedy series and acting bids.
Any light of recognition and acceptance
by the academy and the community is so
important for our show because we are still
the little engine that could, Tambor said.
And the subject matter is so important. So
this is really, really a bright, bright day.
Its understandable that worthy shows and
performers will be overlooked, given the
crush of small-screen programming on
broadcast, cable, satellite and online. But
some omissions stand out as a sign the TV
industry has yet to encompass the diversity
of the country it seeks to entertain.
While academy voters found room for
Henson and Davis, two-time nominee Kerry
Washington of Scandal was squeezed out.
Family comedy black-ish earned an acting bid for star Anthony Anderson, but
failed to gain a best series nomination.
For the overall top nominee, the nominations were a rerun of last year. Game of

Tragedy inspires powerful Triangle at TheatreWorks


By Judy Richter
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

One of the greatest American


tragedies of the early 20th century was
the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in
1911 in New York City. The death toll
reached 146 people, many of them
immigrant women, some in their early
teens.
Triangle, a musical inspired by
this disaster, is receiving its world premiere in an outstanding production by
TheatreWorks.
With music by Curtis Moore, lyrics
by Thomas Mizer and a book by Mizer,
Moore and Joshua Scher, Triangle
takes place in 1910 and 1911 and in
2011. Most of the action is set in the
restored 10-story building where the
fire occurred.
Adroitly directed by Meredith
McDonough, scenes easily shift
between the two time periods.

The main character in the 2011


scenes is Brian (Ross Lekites), a doctoral student in chemistry. Lekites is
the only member of the six-person
cast to play just one character. The
others play at least two.
Brian and his friend, Cynthia
(Sharon Rietkerk), also a doctoral student, are entering the building as a
group of people is gathered nearby to
read the names of those who died in the
fire.
They accidentally meet Ben (Zachary
Prince). For various reasons, both Ben
and Brian become interested in specific fire victims.
The 1910 and 1911 scenes focus on a
Jewish immigrant, Sarah (Megan
McGinnis), who has started work
supervised by Vincenzo (Prince).
Others seen in this time period are
Vincenzos sister, Theresa (Laura
DAndre); Sarahs widowed, pregnant
sister, Chaya (Rietkerk); and their

father (Rolf Saxon).


Although the title refers to the shirtwaist factory, it also alludes to the triangular relationships that develop
among various characters. David
Zimmermans set with its walls set at
an angle is a subtle reflection of the
triangle theme.
The plot also alludes to 9/11, in
which Brians beloved older sister died
while working in one of the towers.
Because hes still grieving, he cant
move on as well as he should.
All of the actors sing well as individuals and in ensembles. Each one
also creates a clearly defined character.
Triangle was first seen locally during TheatreWorks annual New Works
Festival in 2012. It was then reworked
around the country until it was ready
for this world premiere, the 66th in
TheatreWorks 46 seasons.

Thrones repeated as the top nominee,
with 24 bids. Thats five more than
last year, despite the fantasy saga taking hits for depicting a female characters wedding-night rape by her brutish
husband.
The series is a contender again for
top drama honors, an award that has
eluded it since it debuted in 2011. TV
academy voters rarely give shows in
the sci-fi or other genres the ultimate
accolade, with Lost among the rare
exceptions.
Other top awards are American
Horror Story: Freak Show, with 19
nominations; TV movie Olive
Kitteridge with 13 nominations; and
House of Cards, Mad Men and
Transparent with 11 nominations.
The nominations reflect the steadily
rising tide of cord-cutting networks.

drama made the cut for best series, with
cable, streaming service Netflix and
non-commercial PBS dividing up the
spoils instead.
The Good Wife was the last broadcast nominee in the category, in 2011.
Programs getting a last chance for
Emmy glory include best drama series
nominee Mad Men, a four-time winner in the category that would be the
most-honored drama ever with a fifth
trophy. For star Jon Hamms portrayal
of Don Draper, its a final shot after
seven previous nominations.
David Letterman, who retired from
Late Show, and Stephen Colbert,
who left The Colbert Report to succeed Letterman this fall, both received
variety talk show nominations for
their former shows.
Late Show was last nominated in
2009 as best variety, music or comedy
series and last won in 2002. Colberts
show won in 2014.
Theyre both getting a break: the TV
academy split the variety series category into two, one for variety talk
shows and one for variety or sketch

series like Saturday Night Live,


making space for more contenders in
each.
Joining Game of Thrones, Mad
Men and Better Call Saul in the best
drama category are Downton Abbey,
Homeland, House of Cards and
Orange is the New Black, which
switched over from comedy series contention because of an Emmy rules
change.
On the comedy series side, perennial
TV academy favorite Modern Family
is nominated again, along with
Louie,
Silicon
Valley,
Transparent, Unbreakable Kimmy
Schmidt and Veep.
Modern Family has won in the category a record-tying (with Frasier)
five times.
The Emmy Awards will air Sept. 20
on Fox, with Andy Samberg as host.
HBO received a leading 126 nominations, followed by ABC with 42, CBS

Redwood Symphony going strong at 30


By David Bratman
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

The Redwood Symphony is a local community orchestra thats good at startling its listeners with the extent and imagination of its
repertoire, and frequently with the quality of
the playing from its all-volunteer membership, as well. Whats also startling is that the
orchestra has been in existence for 30 years
now.
During all that time, it has been under the
musical direction of one man, Eric Kujawsky.
Maestro Kujawsky has the bones of a founder
of orchestras in him. As a doctoral student in
conducting at Stanford University in the
early 1980s, he had put together a Stanford
Summer Symphony for three years running.
When he earned his degree in 1985, he
wanted to stay in the area, he had no orchestra to conduct, so, building on this experience, he founded another one: the Redwood
Symphony. Hes stayed with it ever since,
while also undertaking other jobs, guest conducting for other orchestras and theatrical
groups such as TheatreWorks in Palo Alto,
and directing the music ministry at Ladera
Community Church.
There were already other volunteer community orchestras in the area. What made the
Redwood Symphony different was its choice
of repertoire. Maestro Kujawsky loves modern and contemporary music. He knows they
can be exciting and appealing, and he does
not limit himself to the conventionally
classical. The Redwood Symphony has performed works by Stephen Sondheim, Danny
Elfman, Elvis Costello and other composers
of serious quality from outside the standard

The 30th anniversary concert, on July 25 at the San Mateo Performing Arts Center, will feature
two modern classics: Igor Stravinskys Rite of Spring, the brutally exciting ballet score that
originally persuaded Eric Kujawsky to become a conductor.
classical repertoire. The orchestra has even,
more than once, collaborated with a Beatles
tribute group, the White Album Ensemble, for
Beatles songs including orchestral instruments.
When the Redwood turns to more conventional but ambitious, adventurous modern
repertoire, such as Olivier Messiaens
Turangalila or Charles Ives Fourth
Symphony, extra players are often needed.
Kujawsky proudly reports that really good
musicians from the local orchestras, many of
them paid professionals, come to play for us
for free, because there is no other way they
could play the repertoire! Audiences, too,

enjoy hearing these rare works at discount


prices.
Theres one achievement the Redwood
Symphony is known for above all others.
Alex Ross, distinguished music critic for The
New Yorker, on the road in 2007 to report on
smaller orchestras, exclaimed in amazement,
Who would have guessed that the Redwood
Symphony, a volunteer orchestra in the
Silicon Valley area, has played all of
Mahlers symphonies?
That was eight years ago. As of next July,
when it concludes its upcoming season with
Mahlers Eighth known as the
Symphony of a Thousand in only slight

exaggeration of the size of the forces necessary to play it the Redwood Symphony
will have played all of Mahlers symphonies
twice each, including the 10th, the one the
composer didnt live to finish.
Ive heard a few of these performances.
Kujawsky and the Redwood Symphony bring
to Mahler a sincerity and belief in the music,
and an exciting perspiring energy, that I find
more appealing than the polished and awardwinning Mahler by the renowned San
Francisco Symphony under Michael Tilson
Thomas. Word has spread, and Redwoods
Mahler concerts are usually sold out.
The 30th anniversary concert, on July 25
at the San Mateo Performing Arts Center, will
feature two modern classics: Igor
Stravinskys Rite of Spring, the brutally
exciting ballet score that originally persuaded Kujawsky to become a conductor (and
which Redwood has recorded), and Carl Orffs
ever-popular and powerfully punchy,
Carmina Burana. This concert, too, is
expected to sell out.
Besides Mahlers Eighth, the upcoming
31st season will include new works such as a
cello concerto by Kujawsky favorite Michael
Daugherty and the premiere of a new violin
concerto by Henry Mollicone. There will be
older rare modern classics, including Samuel
Barbers song Knoxville: Summer of 1915,
and better-known modern works by
Hindemith, Shostakovich and Britten. Nor
will Beethoven, Brahms or Tchaikovsky be
forgotten. Most of these concerts will be at
the main theater of Caada College in
Redwood City. Info is at http://www.redwoodsymphony.org/.
It looks like another good season from Eric
Kujawsky and the Redwood Symphony.

WEEKEND JOURNAL

THE DAILY JOURNAL

Despite his status in comic book history


as a founding member of the Avengers, AntMan has never stood quite as tall as SpiderMan, Captain America or Hulk in the greater
pop-culture realm. Thats primarily because
the character isnt quite as charismatic as
Peter Parker or Tony Stark, and his superpowers are, well, a bit weird. He shrinks,
expands and talks to bugs.
For the filmmakers, Ant-Man is right
where he should be.
I liked that after Avengers: Age of
Ultron, which was amazingly big with cities
falling out of the sky, this was a street-level
story, said Bring It On director Peyton
Reed, who was brought on after Wrights
departure. Scott Lang is a normal guy with
no powers, and hes sucked into this bizarre
world. That was a cool arc that I hadnt really
seen in a Marvel movie.
Besides Reeds last-minute addition, Rudd
and his Anchorman writer-director pal
Adam McKay were tapped to rework the
script. Feige said they kept the original
spine of the story from Wright and
Cornish about a criminal recruited by an
older mentor to inherit the mantle of AntMan. (Wright and Cornish are credited with
story and co-writing credits.)
Reed said the final version of the film

incorporates several new elements, such as


exploring what happens if Ant-Man shrinks
to a subatomic level, expanding the role of
Hope Van Dyne, introducing an encounter
with an Avenger, as well as injecting a pivotal cameo by the character Janet Van Dyne,
the wife of Pym who serves as the superhero
Wasp in the comics.
Peyton Reed, Paul Rudd, Adam McKay and
a handful of other writers completely turned
the movie into what we hoped it could be,
said Feige. When people tell me their
favorite parts of the movie, whether its an
emotional beat, a favorite joke or a visual
sequence, all of that came from the reworking
that Paul and Adam did, overseen by Peyton.
Unlike most Marvel films, there are no
Infinity Stone appearances or third-act dogfights involving aliens or robots. (There is,
however, a troop of adorable flying ants.)
Rudds Lang doesnt even serve quite as many
zingers as Robert Downey Jr. delivers as
Tony Stark in the Iron Man and Avengers
films, or as Chris Pratt gets away with as
Peter Quill in Guardians of the Galaxy.
I wanted to do something different and a
little less expected, said Rudd. When you
hear that Adam and I are going to be working
on the script, I think everyone thought, Oh,
this going to be a joke-fest. Thats our back-

ground. We worried about the character and


the story first. You have to balance it.
The biggest difference for Ant-Man,
which centers on Langs attempt to nab
Cross technology, is that its as much of a
family drama as it is a heist film or superhero
flick. Throughout the movie, Lang seeks to
reconnect with his daughter, Cassie (Abby
Ryder Fortson), after being released from
prison, while Pym and Hope work to reconcile their own strained relationship.
Reed, whose credits include Yes Man and
The Break-Up, never felt minimized while
working on Ant-Man.
I was thrilled to discover in the Marvel
method that theres a lot of leeway, said
Reed. They encourage weird, idiosyncratic
methods. Ant-Man is their 12th film. They
havent done it all, but theyve done a lot.
Theyre creatively hungry to do different
stuff. I found that very liberating.
Ant-Man will be the latest test to see
how far Marvel can push the genre following
last years successfully space jump with
Guardians of the Galaxy. The studio apparently already has big plans for Ant-Man.
Rudd will reprise his role in next years
Captain America: Civil War, which depicts
a divide between superheroes siding with Cap
and those aligning with Iron Man.

for paying child support to his ex-wife (Judy
Greer, an actress too good to be twice relegated to the domestic sidelines in this summers blockbusters).

secrets that led to Ant-Man in the first place:


the ability to shrink down to bug-size, yet
maintain
strength.
Somewhere
in
Wonderland, Alice is tapping her foot.
With the press of a button, he can toggle
between big and small, and appear all but
invisible when tiny. The perspective change
allows for some unlikely superhero foes, like
a bathtub drain. During training, while Lang
tries to perfect his communication with other
underground ants, he sometimes pops out of
the ground like a sprouted cabbage.
With a screenplay credited to Wright, Joe
Cornish, McKay and Rudd, Ant-Man
unfolds in pleasingly human-sized fashion.
Its a heist movie. Not one city is leveled;
its like Marvel has gone on a diet.
But its only in the climactic scenes where
the movie unlocks the antic potential of its
shape-shifting. Rather than taking place
above the skyline of a metropolis, the big

action scenes are set inside a briefcase and in


Cassies bedroom. Such moments, sprinkled
throughout, are like glimpses of a better
Ant-Man that might have existed.
Change, we are told, is afoot in the Marvel
Cinematic Universe. Ant-Man is the final
movie in the studios Phase Two, with
promises of bigger, intergalactic battles
looming in Phase Three. But as a parent
might say, its just a phase.

spot the differences from Marvel movie to
Marvel movie. If Ant-Man proves anything, its that any diversion in this universe
is likely to get stomped underfoot.
Ant-Man, a Walt Disney Co. release, is
rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture
Association of America for sci-fi action
violence. Running time: 124 minutes. Two
stars out of four.

But spryness (an essential quality for any


movie about an insect superhero) or any
much purpose, at all, is missing from these
scenes. The movie is too controlled for
Rudds goofball charm best on display
when simply standing in front of a mirror
(Wanderlust) or animated about music (I
Love You, Man) to break free.
Through some strained plot mechanics,
Lang is recruited by the original Ant-Man,
the scientist Hank Pym (Michael Douglas),
to succeed him in the suit. Along with his
daughter (a bob-sporting Evangeline Lilly),
hes conspiring to prevent a former apprentice (Corey Stoll) from unlocking the atomic

ATTACK
Continued from page 1
was not authorized to discuss the case
and spoke on condition of anonymity.
The shootings took place minutes
apart, with the gunman stopping his
car and spraying dozens of bullets
first at a recruiting center for all
branches of the military, then apparently driving to a Navy-Marine training center 7 miles away, authorities
and witnesses said. The attacks were
over within a half-hour.
In addition to the Marines killed,
three people were reported wounded,
including a sailor who was seriously
hurt.
Lives have been lost from some
faithful people who have been serving our country, and I think I join all
Tennesseans in being both sickened
and saddened by this, Gov. Bill
Haslam said.
Authorities would not say how the
gunman died. FBI agent Ed Reinhold
said Abdulazeez had numerous
weapons but would not give details.
We are looking at every possible
avenue, whether it was terrorism,
whether its domestic, international,
or whether it was a simple criminal
act, Reinhold said.
Within hours of the bloodshed, law
officers with guns drawn swarmed

HILL
Continued from page 1
this fiscal year, these transit programs
are currently slated to only receive
about $300 million. Hill now seeks to
increase that to $600 million to support programs that will have a direct
benefit on reducing greenhouse gas
emissions.
Theres a significant shortfall in
funding to maintain mass transit as
well as state roads and highways. With
the population in the Bay Area continuing to rise, Caltrain is planning a
massive system upgrade to account for
growing ridership.
Caltrains Modernization Program
entails electrifying the tracks, purchasing new trains and installing a
new control system.
Electrifying the tracks between San
Jose and San Francisco is anticipated
to have substantial environmental
benefit by reducing nearly 176,000
metric tons of carbon dioxide and
decreasing 619, 000 vehicle miles
traveled each year, according to Hills
office.
We need a considerable amount of
money for Caltrains modernization,

what was believed to be Abdulazeezs


house, and two females were led away
in handcuffs.
A dozen law enforcement vehicles,
including a bomb-squad truck and an
open-sided Army green truck carrying
armed men, rolled into the Hixson
neighborhood, and police closed off
streets and turned away people trying
to reach their homes.
Abdulazeez graduated from the
University
of
Tennessee
at
Chattanooga in 2012 with a bachelors in electrical engineering and was
a student intern a few years ago at the
Tennessee Valley Authority, the federally owned utility that operates power
plants and dams across the South.
The U.S. National Counterterrorism
Center is reporting no apparent nexus
to terrorism has been uncovered in the
investigation, but intelligence officials are monitoring the investigation closely. The Islamic State group
has been encouraging extremists to
carry out attacks in the U.S., and several such homegrown acts or plots
have unfolded in recent months.
The names of the dead were not
immediately released. In addition to
the wounded sailor, a Marine was hit
in the leg but not seriously hurt, and a
police officer was shot in the ankle,
authorities said.
In Washington, President Barack
Obama pledged a prompt and thorough investigation and said the White
House had been in touch with the
Pentagon to make sure military

installations are being vigilant.


It is a heartbreaking circumstance
for these individuals who served our
country with great valor to be killed
in this fashion, he said.
Vice President Joe Biden likewise
said: Their families have already
given a lot to the country, and now
this.
The shootings began at the recruiting center on Old Lee Highway, where
a shot rang out around 10:30 or 10:45
a.m., followed a few seconds later by
more fire, said Sgt. 1st Class Robert
Dodge, leader of Army recruiting at
the center.
He and his comrades dropped to the
ground and barricaded themselves in a
safe place. Dodge estimated there were
30 to 50 shots fired. Doors and glass
were damaged at the neighboring Air
Force, Navy and Marine offices, he
said.
Law enforcement officials told
recruiters that the gunman stopped his
car in front of the recruiting station,
shot at the building and drove off,
said Brian Lepley, a spokesman with
the U.S. Army Recruiting Command
in Fort Knox, Kentucky.
The recruiting center sits in a short
strip mall, between a cellphone business and an Italian restaurant, with no
apparent special security.
The gunman opened fire next at the
Navy Operational Support Center and
Marine Corps Reserve Center
Chattanooga. All the dead were killed
there.

Hill said. When you look at what that


modernization program will give us in
terms of congestion relief, its imperative that we allocate as much money as
possible to Caltrain and other regional transit programs around the state
that can get that same bang for the
buck.
There are significant local benefits
to electrifying the tracks by 2020
the same year in which cap and trade
laws set statewide carbon emission
reduction goals such as alleviating
congestion on Highway 101, reducing
greenhouse gases and enhancing
mobility in general, according to
Caltrain
spokeswoman
Tasha
Bartholomew.
The cap and trade programs are
important for transit agencies, but the
programs are small and there is not
enough money in them, Bartholomew
wrote in an email. We hope that these
programs will grow and we support
Senator Hills effort to increase them.
Last fiscal year, Caltrain received
$935,000 from cap and trade funds
toward its more than $1. 5 billion
Modernization Program; however, it is
still slated to receive nearly $750 million from the high-speed rail project
which is allocated 25 percent of cap
and trade revenue.
Hills proposal would maintain the

current percentage of cap and trade


allocations to other programs such as
high-speed rail and another 20 percent
set aside for housing and sustainable
communities; but it would decrease the
remainder for the Legislature to spend
at its discretion from 40 percent to 25
percent.
Hills bill is in response to the
states post-fiscal year budget process
in which Gov. Jerry Brown called for
two special sessions to address transportation and health care issues legislators stalled on during the normal
budgetary session.
Now, the Senates Transportation
and Infrastructure
Development
Committee is expected to review Hills
proposal as part of the Extraordinary
Session on Infrastructure, according to
Hills Office.
With cap and trade now only in its
second year, Hill said its important to
ensure the law is implemented correctly by making adjustments as necessary.
The goal is to fine-tune the allocations to meet the needs, the real needs
of California, Hill said. Everyone
wants a claim to the money and we
have to find the best use and certainly
regional public mass transportation is
the best and most successful at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

PETITION TO DECLARE MINOR


FREE FROM PARENTAL CUSTODY
AND CONTROL
Case Number A16318
IN THE SUPERIOR COURT OF THE
STATE OF CALIFORNIA IN AND FOR
THE COUNTY OF SAN MATEO
In the matter of the Adoption Petition of
JESSICA BENAVIDES, of MYLEE ISABEL PEREZ, a minor
No. A16318
CITATION TO PARENT, [Family Code
Sections 7881 and 8604(a)].
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA
TO: Michelle Mackey Aleman Perez:
By this citation, you are hereby advised that you may appear in Department
5 of this court on August 13, 2015 at
9:00a.m., then and there to show cause,
if any you have, why MYLEE ISABEL
PEREZ should not be declared free from
your custody and control for the purpose
of freeing her from placement for stepparent adoption, on the grounds that you
have abandoned that child. The above
referenced Adoption alleges that, for a
period of one year after January, 2014,
you willfully failed to communicate with,
and to pay for the care, support, and education of, the above-named child, although able to do so.
The following information concerns
the rights and procedures that relate to
this proceeding for the termination of
custody and control of MYLEE ISABEL
PEREZ as set forth in Family Code Sections 7860 through 7864:
1. At the beginning of the proceeding
the Court will consider whether or not the
interests of MYLEE ISABEL PEREZ require the appointment of counsel. If the
Court finds that her interests do require
protection, the Court will appoint counsel
to represent her, whether or not she is
able to afford counsel. MYLEE ISABEL
PEREZ will not be present in court unless she so requests or the Court so orders.
2. If you appear without counsel and
you are unable to afford counsel, the
Court must appoint counsel for you, unless you knowingly and intelligently
waive the right to be represented by
counsel. The Court will not appoint the
same counsel to represent both you and
your child, MYLEE ISABEL PEREZ.
3. If the Court appoints counsel for y
ou, at the end of the proceeding, the
Court will hold a hearing to determine the
amount, if any, that you will be required
to reimburse the county for the services
of your appointed counsel.
4. The Court may continue the proceeding for not more than 30 days as
necessary to appoint counsel and to enable counsel to be acquainted with the
case.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

BEACH
Continued from page 1
Commission said Surfriders California
Policy Manager Stefanie Sekich.
The SLC is currently bound by a law
authored by state Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San
Mateo, to negotiate with Khosla for access.
If an agreement cannot be met by Jan. 1,
2016, the SLC could use its long-standing
power of condemnation an authority it
has never employed.
Khosla, whos tried to avoid speaking in
court as well as in the media about his ownership of the property and decision to close
it to the public, has met with SLC officials
twice since Hills law went into effect this
year. Those conversations have been productive and the SLC is hopeful itll be able to
negotiate right-of-way easements off
Highway 1 and along the entire beach without having to use eminent domain, said SLC
Executive Officer Jennifer Lucchesi.
The information that well obtain from
the public [at the Surfrider meeting] about
what they would like to see out there will be
helpful in our negotiations. Particularly as it
relates to the extent of the easement or
right-of-way that were trying to negotiate
for acquisition, Lucchesi said.
Important public input will include what
hours the beach should be open, how much
parking should cost, what types of activities
should be allowed and whether amenities
such as public restrooms should exist.
Currently, the beach is being opened to
the public for a $10 parking fee most days
this summer between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., or

SHELTER
Continued from page 1
request for proposals in September with a
contract expected to be awarded in
November.
The project at 12 Airport Blvd. is expected to be completed in October 2017, according to Porters report.
San Mateo County contracts with the
Peninsula Humane Society for its animal
control and sheltering services. Animals are
processed at the current location at Airport

whenever a toll collector is available,


according to Surfrider representatives.
While crowds have already flocked to the
now famous beach thats served as the epitome of conflict between the rights of private
property owners and Californians seeking
their constitutional right to access the
beach, advocates argue they want a binding
agreement.

Appeal
Khosla has appealed San Mateo County
Superior Court Judge Barbara Mallachs decision to side with Surfrider in its claim the
wealthy property owner violated the
California Coastal Act when the gate was
locked to Martins Beach Road, signs were
painted over and security guards were hired
to deter visitors.
Khoslas attorneys have until mid-October
to file their arguments for why Mallachs
orders to reopen the beach until he secures
permits from the Coastal Commission
should be overturned. With private property
and beach access cases often spanning
years, the appellate court proceedings are
anticipated to last some time, said Eric
Buescher, an attorney representing Surfrider
with the firm Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy.

Friday July 17, 2015

much are you willing to pay for parking? Do


you want to be able to eat there, surf there,
take your dog, have a picnic or fish? Whats
the publics desire? Buescher said. Then
take that information so the State Lands
Commission and the Coastal Commission
and the defendants, hopefully, and whoever
else is involved in negotiations and resolving access at Martins Beach, at the end of
the day will be able to take that input and
understand what the public wants and determine whats fair to both sides.
Lucchesi and Rob Caughlan, an environmental activist and former Surfrider president, agreed theyd like to find a fair resolution to which Khosla agrees.
While Lucchesi said the SLC is in the
midst of appraising the property to determine the cost of an easement to create access
on the property, one concern Caughlan
raised is that taxpayer money shouldnt be
spent assuaging a man who potentially owes
fines for allegedly violating the California
Coastal Act.

Making it work

Buescher encouraged beachgoers to attend


Mondays meeting, share their ideals and
illustrate to Khosla that access to Martins
beach continues to be a priority.
This also demonstrates Surfriders longstanding desire to involve the public in decision making about public resources.
Surfrider wants to know from the public,
what do you want at Martins Beach? How

The Coastal Commission is working


within its own legal channels by issuing a
prescriptive rights survey to establish historical public access. Caughlan, a longtime
surfer, argues it shouldnt be so complicated.
Its easy, we can do this. Theres nothing
expensive about this. Its just cooperation,
its being good neighbors is what its all
about. So I keep hoping we can figure out a
way to make it work for [Khosla], Caughlan
said. Were still trying, but he keeps
appealing and losing. Hes lost in court,
hes lost in the Legislature, hes lost in the
governors office. ... We think we can make

Boulevard and, if or when deemed ready for


adoption, moved to the Tom Lantos Center
for Compassion, the donor-funded facility
that opened in 2011 on Burlingames
Rollins Road.
The agreement for PHS to continue providing the services was just renewed.
Peninsula Humane Society is very
pleased to be continuing as the animal services contract provider for the next five
years, as we have been for the past 55-plus
years, and believe the animals, residents
and cities are getting an excellent level of
service for the contract amount. We have a
contract that reflects no increase in costs in
year one, respectful of the countys budget

demands, PHS spokesman Scott Delucchi


wrote in an email Thursday.
Public Works looked at revamping the
existing building which dates from the
1960s or retrofitting another but determined that all the alternative options were
too costly.
The Board of Supervisors approved an
agreement last year with all cities in the
county to build the new shelter on Airport
Boulevard and enter into a 30-year interestfree lease.
The county will front the building costs
and the cities will pay various lease
amounts based on a combination of its
three-year average use of the shelter and

Attendance encouraged

it work for Khosla, maybe he can salvage


his tattered reputation.
Khoslas attorneys did not return a request
for comment.
Lucchesi said the SLC is striving to find a
viable solution for both the property owner
and the public and couldnt comment on
whether it would ultimately use condemnation its not required to do so under Hills
law. If it cannot reach a compromise, the
commission made up of the lieutenant governor, state controller and director of the
states Department of Finance would decide
whether to turn to eminent domain.
With multiple efforts and agencies working to instate permanent public access,
Monday nights meeting will provide an
opportunity for the community to ask questions and understand the challenges ahead.
Mike Wallace, Half Moon Bay resident,
surf coach and spokesman for the local
Surfrider chapter, said this last weekend at
Martins Beach reminded him of why its
worth the battle.
It was really an amazing experience in
the sense that there were tons of people on
the beach, everybody was doing something,
there were fishermen and people surfing,
Wallace said. It just drove the whole thing
home, the reason why were doing this. Just
