her former landlord and friend.
But as the property has been
passed down through generations

allowing Hatch to stay at the home
has come into question, as has the
future of her residency.
For her part, Hatch said she is
uncertain what the future holds for

Hatch and Rothrock, 85,

Kantz inherited the home from
Vivian Kruse, the former property
owner who allegedly promised
Hatch she could lease her home for
life, and now intends to sell the
land.

Mother found guilty of drunk


driving crash with baby on lap
By Scott Morris

BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

A 44-year-old San Francisco mother was


found guilty Friday of crashing her BMW
into a power pole in Redwood City in 2014
while driving drunk and carrying her 3week-old baby on her lap, according to
prosecutors.
A jury in the courtroom of Judge Richard
Livermore found Nicole Christine Karvelis
guilty of felony drunk driving with three or
more prior convictions, misdemeanor hitand-run and misdemeanor child endangerment, according to the San Mateo County
District Attorneys Office.
Prosecutors said Karvelis was driving east

on Cordilleras Road on July 1, 2014, when


she hit a power pole and sheared it in half at
the intersection with Canyon Road, prosecutors said.
A witness saw the crash and watched
Karvelis jump from the BMW with her baby
still in her lap. The baby fell to the ground
and rolled toward the witness car, prosecutors said.
Karvelis then tried to leave by getting
into another persons truck, but the driver

and passenger in the truck told her she had


to stay at the crash scene, prosecutors said.
She then ran to a house nearby. The homeowner flagged down responding San Mateo
County sheriffs deputies, who found the
homeowner holding Karvelis baby. They
took the baby and found Karvelis, who was
saying, I probably shouldnt have been
driving, and I drank too much, prosecutors said.
Karvelis refused to submit to a blood test
so exactly how much shed had to drink wasnt determined.
After a 10-day trial a jury returned guilty
verdicts on three counts. Karvelis is set to
return to court on April 1 for sentencing,
prosecutors said.

Analyst: Lawmakers should reject $250 million for jails


By Don Thompson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO California lawmakers


should reject Gov. Jerry Browns plan to
give counties another $250 million for jail
construction, the states nonpartisan legislative analyst said Monday.
The state has already provided $2.2 billion to build jails since 2007, including $1
billion since it began sending lower-level
offenders to county lockups instead of state
prisons about four years ago.
The Democratic governor failed to show
the need for more construction money, the
Legislative Analysts Office said in a report
examining Browns criminal justice budget.
The budget he offered last month fails to
take into account a 2014 voter initiative
that lowered penalties for certain drug and
property crimes, the analysts concluded. It
also doesnt consider whether counties can

use alternatives to jailing offenders.


The analysts noted the
states jail population
dropped by 10, 000
inmates after voters
approved Proposition
47.
Browns budget and
state sheriffs say the
Jerry Brown money is needed to provide rehabilitation programs, not more cells.
Program and treatment space is critical
to reducing recidivism, said Department of
Finance spokesman H.D. Palmer.
As with the last round of funds, the money
would go to provide the kind of rehabilitation programs that lawmakers and voters
sought when they approved legal changes
in recent years, California State Sheriffs
Association spokesman Cory Salzillo said.

KALAMAZOO, Mich. The


Uber ride-hailing service acknowledged Monday
that it received
complaints
about
erratic
driving by the
suspect in the
random shootings that killed
six people in
Kalamazoo, and
Jason Dalton a prosecutor
said the man
admitted carrying out the attacks.
As authorities pieced together
Jason Daltons actions, the prosecutor said he picked up Uber fares
after the first shooting and probably got more riders after the subsequent shootings.
Dalton, the 45-year-old former
insurance adjuster, appeared
briefly in court by video link and
was charged with six counts of
murder. A judge denied him bail.
During a talk with investigators, Dalton waived his right
against self-incrimination and
confessed his role in the Saturday
night shootings, Kalamazoo
County Prosecutor Jeff Getting
said.

Kalamazoo County Prosecutor Jeff Getting, front right, speaks with reporters
after the arraignment of Jason Dalton in Kalamazoo County, Mich.
Dalton admitted that he took
peoples lives, Kalamazoo police
Det. Cory Ghiringhelli told the
court. The murder charges carry a
mandatory
life
sentence.
Michigan does not have the death
penalty.
An Uber passenger said he called
police to report that Dalton was
driving erratically more than an
hour before the shootings began.
Matt Mellen told Kalamazoo television station WWMT that he
hailed a ride around 4:30 p.m.
Saturday. He said driver Jason
Dalton introduced himself as Me-

Me and had a dog in the backseat.


Mellen sat in front. About a mile
into the trip, Dalton got a phone
call, and when he hung up, he
began driving recklessly, blowing
through stop signs and sideswiping cars, Mellen said.
We were driving through medians, driving through the lawn,
speeding along, and when we came
to a stop, I jumped out of the car
and ran away, Mellen said. He
said he called police and that when
he got to his friends house, his
fiancie posted a warning to friends
on Facebook.

the San Mateo County Harbor District
board waived slip fees for its 39 permitted commercial crab fishermen who
operate out of Pillar Point Harbor on
the coast.
The cost to the district to waive one
months fee will range from just over
$9,000 to a little more than $22,000,
according to a report by the districts
General Manager Steve McGrath.
The board voted 3-0 at its
Wednesday, Feb. 17, meeting to
approve the item with board President
Tom Mattusch and Commissioner
Pietro Parravano recusing themselves
from the vote.
The fishermen, however, would have
to repay the waived fees if federal disaster relief becomes available.
Gov. Jerry Brown has requested the
U. S. Department of Commerce to
declare a fishery resource disaster so
that fishing communities affected by
the closure may receive essential economic assistance.
Slip fees range in cost from $232 to
$567 per month.
The recreational crab season, however, has opened in portions of the
state including locally.
Commissioner Sabrina Brennan

wanted to extend the fee waivers to


recreational fisherman as well and to
extend it to three months rather than
one.
But fellow commissioners Virginia
Chang Kiraly and Robert Bernardo
opposed the idea.
Chang Kiraly, vice president of the
board, presided over the meeting since
Mattusch recused himself.
Im afraid we might lose some of
our local fishing businesses. Fishing
is what attracts people to Pillar Point
Harbor. Recreational fishing is important to countys economy. This has
been so bad, its really worrisome our
fishing fleet might not survive it,
Brennan said, according to a video of
the meeting.
She wanted to extend the waiver to
charter boat operators, such as
Mattusch who operates the Huli Cat,
because they too have suffered financial hardship.
She also said the harbors three fish
buyers should have their fees waived
too.
But Bernardo said three months was
too much time since staff only recommended one month. Slip fees have
been waived at other harbors in
Bodega Bay and San Francisco for up
to three months. Other harbors, such
as Santa Barbara, Trinidad and Santa
Cruz have taken no action on the fee
waivers, although Santa Cruz has

refunded crab storage fees. The


Berkeley Marina, Eureka and Morro
Bay have also taken no action to waive
any fees.
Although Brennan voted to approve
the fee waiver, she did so reluctantly.
I have no choice but to vote for the
motion but Im voting for the motion
in protest because I feel strongly that
we arent doing enough. And Im disappointed in my fellow board members
in not seeing how critical the situation
is and not being willing and not being
able to find it your heart to do more to
help our fleet, Brennan said at the
meeting.
Bernardo, however, said the board
could extend the fee waiver by more
months if necessary at a later meeting.
Chang Kiraly said it was a matter of
balancing the districts non-enterprise
and enterprise activities since taxpayers subsidize half of the districts budget.
Taxpayer money should be supporting non-enterprise activities, Chang
Kiraly said.
Since the district makes money off
renting slips at Pillar Point and Oyster
Point marinas, the activity is considered enterprise.
At the same meeting, Mattusch
appointed himself and Brennan to sit
on the Oyster Point Marina subcommittee. The district operates the marina under a joint powers agreement with
South San Francisco.

Appeals court upholds California parole laws
SAN FRANCISCO A federal appeals court on Monday
upheld California laws approved by voters that set stricter
limits on parole hearings and give the governor authority
to block parole.
The statutes do not violate a constitutional ban against
increasing punishments retroactively, a three-judge panel
of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said.
At issue in the ruling were Proposition 9, which is also
known as Marsys Law, and Proposition 89.
Marsys Law approved by voters in 2008 extended
the amount of time a prisoner must wait for another parole
hearing after being denied parole.
Proposition 89 passed by voters in 1988 gives the
governor authority to reverse parole decisions for inmates
convicted of murder.
California inmates convicted before the laws took effect
sued, saying the changes violated the Constitution by creating a significant risk that their prison terms would be
longer.

California voters continue to choose no party at all


SACRAMENTO New state voter registration figures
continue the trend of the fastest growing segment of the
California electorate registering without any political affiliation.
The data released Monday by Secretary of State Alex
Padilla show 24 percent of those registered have no party
preference.
The report says California had 17.3 million registered
voters in January. Of them, 43 percent were registered as
Democrats and 27 percent as Republicans.
Both major political parties have been losing their share
of the electorate in recent years as more people register as
independents, but GOP registration is falling fastest as a
percentage.
Padilla says registration is not keeping pace with
increases in the population.

signs of struggle as

Donald Trump speaks at a campaign rally in Las Vegas.

Trumps favorite excuse? It


was just harmless retweets
By Jill Colvin
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAS VEGAS Donald Trump has repeated inaccurate and racially charged crime statistics, reposted pledges of support from
white supremacists and retweeted dubious
questions about the citizenship of his presidential rivals to an online following of
more than 6 million people on Twitter
alone.
His response when challenged? To dismiss it all as nothing more than harmless
retweets.
Unlike any presidential candidate before
him, Trump has fueled his campaign for the
Republican nomination with a seemingly
endless series of eyebrow-raising statements. Its a strategy unavailable to a conventional politician but seemingly tailormade for the billionaire businessman and
master marketer.
Weve gone from a 24-hour news cycle to
a 24-second news cycle, said GOP consultant Kevin Madden. So right when you
think Trump is about to endure a concentrated level of scrutiny for a false statement or
the latest outrage, he is on to the next controversy.
Yet Trumps pattern of repeating things
that are false, or just unseemly, and then
refusing to take responsibility, would
undoubtedly pose a challenge should he
move into the White House where a presidents casual utterance or late-night tweet
could move financial markets or spark a

diplomatic incident.
Trumps latest example came on Saturday,
hours before he won the South Carolina GOP
primary to cement his status as the
Republican presidential front-runner. He
quoted a supporter on Twitter who was questioning rival Marco Rubios eligibility to
run for president, even though the Florida
senator was born in the U.S.
Its a SLAM DUNK CASE!! Check it!
read the tweet, which linked to a video on a
conservative website featuring an unidentified woman arguing that only people who
with American parents qualify as natural
born. Rubios parents were immigrants
from Cuba who didnt become naturalized
citizens until a few years after his birth.
Asked about the retweet in an interview on
ABCs This Week the next day, Trump said
he hadnt given the issue much thought.
Honestly, Ive never looked at it, he
said. Somebody said hes not. And I
retweeted it. I have 14 million people
between Twitter and Facebook and
Instagram, and I retweet things and we start
dialogue and its very interesting.
Unabashed, Trump said, Maybe thats
why I have 14 million people following
him and others have 200 people.
He used the same explanation earlier this
month after he retweeted, then promptly
deleted, a message from the account of a
neo-Nazi, and in November, when he
retweeted false crime statistics that dramatically overstated the number of whites killed
by blacks.

ELKO, Nevada Marco Rubio amassed


increasing support for his candidacy while
Ted Cruzs campaign showed signs of struggle as Republican presidential candidates
crisscrossed Nevada on Monday on the final
day of campaigning ahead of the states GOP
caucuses.
Cruz told reporters Monday he has asked
his campaign spokesman, Rick Tyler, to
resign for tweeting a story that falsely
alleged Rubio insulted the Bible.
We are not a campaign that is going to
question the faith of another candidate for
president, he said, calling Tyler a good
man and noting that he deleted the tweet
once he discovered it was false.
Tyler did not return telephone, text or
email messages left by the Associated Press
seeking comment.
Its not the first time that Cruzs campaign
has been accused by rivals of using questionable tactics. Cruz apologized to GOP hopeful
Ben Carson earlier this month after his campaign promoted a news story suggesting
that Carson was getting out of the race.
Cruzs campaign has also acknowledged creating a website that used a computer program
to create a fake picture of Rubio shaking
hands with President Barack Obama.
Speaking during a campaign stop in Elko,
Nevada, earlier Monday, Rubio criticized
Cruz for the incident and asked whether Cruz
would fire anyone involved.
Its every single day something comes
out of the Cruz campaign thats deceptive
and untrue, and in this case goes after my
faith, Rubio told reporters when asked
about the incident. I guess one of their
spokespersons apologized, and I accept

their apology.
Republican front-runner Donald Trump lashed
out at Cruz over Twitter
on Monday, saying that
Cruz has now apologized to Marco Rubio and
Ben Carson for fraud and
dirty tricks. No wonder he
has lost Evangelical supMarco Rubio port! He reiterated his
calls for disqualifying
Cruz because of his
fraudulent win in Iowa.
Trump was scheduled to
hold two rallies in
Nevada one in Elko
and another later in Las
Vegas. Trumps campaign
manager
Corey
Lewandowski
said
Ted Cruz
Monday that the billionaire businessman has
been seeking advice from former New York
City Mayor Rudy Giuliani as he gradually
expands his tight inner circle.
Meanwhile, establishment heavyweights
continued to back Rubio, with many saying
they see him as the candidate who can unite a
disharmonious Republican Party. Arkansas
Gov. Asa Hutchinson and Utah Sen. Orrin
Hatch were the latest to endorse Rubio.
South Floridas three Cuban-American members of Congress also said that they shifted
their support to Rubio, having previously
supported for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bushs
now defunct bid.
Former Sen. Bob Dole told ABC News on

but hes now supporting Rubio because he

U.S. and Russia agree on Syrian


cease-fire plan; questions remain
By Maeva Bambuck
and Bradley Klapper
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DAMASCUS, Syria The United States


and Russia have agreed on a new cease-fire
for Syria that will take effect Saturday,
even as major questions over enforcing
and responding to violations of the truce
were left unresolved. Syrias warring government and rebels still need to accept the
deal.
The timeline for a hoped-for breakthrough comes after the former Cold War
foes, backing opposing sides in the conflict, said they finalized the details of a
cessation of hostilities between
President Bashar Assads government and
armed opposition groups after five years
of violence that has killed more than
250, 000 people.
The truce will not cover the Islamic State
group, the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front and
any other militias designated as terrorist
organizations by the U. N. Security
Council. But where in Syria the fighting
must stop and where counterterrorism oper-

ations can continue must


still be addressed. And
the
five-page
plan
released by the U. S.
State Department leaves
open how breaches of
the cease-fire will be
identified or punished.
The
announcement
came after Presidents

Pound plunges as Cameron makes pro-EU case in U.K. Parliament


By Jill Lawless
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LONDON A vote to leave the


European Union would be a great leap
into the unknown at a perilous time for
Britain and the West, Prime Minister
David Cameron said Monday, as uncertainty over the U.K.s future in the bloc sent
the pound plunging on currency markets.
As the political battle for Britains
future entered high gear ahead of a June 23
referendum, Cameron told lawmakers that
membership in the 28-nation EU boosted

the countrys economy


and security.
He told the House of
Commons that in the
face of threats including
Russias muscle-flexing
President Vladimir Putin
and Islamic State group
attackers in the Middle
David Cameron East, this is no time to
divide the West.
Leaving the EU may briefly make us
feel more sovereign, he said, but argued
the U.K. would be stronger, safer and bet-

ter off within the EU.


Cameron said a deal he struck Friday
with 27 other EU leaders gives Britain
special status, exempting the U.K. from
ever-closer political bonds within the
bloc and protecting the rights of the
pound against the euro currency used by 19
EU countries.
But Camerons Conservative Party is
deeply split on the issue, with as many
as half its 330 legislators and at least
six of the 23 Cabinet ministers in

favor of leaving the EU.


In a sign of the uncertainty stirred up by
the EU vote, the pound dropped to a sevenyear low of $1.4058 before rebounding
slightly, and also sagged 0. 5 percent
against the euro. Bookmakers shortened
the odds on a vote to leave though betting markets still favor a remain victory.
UBS Wealth Management said Monday
it put the probability of a British EU exit
known as Brexit at 30 percent.

Getting the foxes out of the henhouse


By Cynthia Cornell

n a national level, we are seeing more and more outrage at


the dilution of our democracy
by the vast amounts of PAC money
being thrown at our elected ofcials
and candidates for ofce. What is happening nationally is also happening
locally, and it is to our detriment to
ignore it.
In attempts to address the immediate and enormous housing crisis on
the Peninsula, the county of San
Mateo and a few cities have formed
blue ribbon committees and task
forces to explore solutions to the
rental crisis and lack of affordable
housing. The county and cities invite
tenants, housing nonprots and
Realtor and landlord lobbyists to
these committees to help explore
solutions. Invariably, the only real
answers to the immediate crisis
rent stabilization and just cause eviction protections are tossed aside as
unworkable. Unworkable for whom,
is my question.
The San Mateo County Association
of Realtors and the California
Apartment Association try to present
themselves as grassroots organizations, but are better dened as astroturf. They have self-serving goals
to increase the prots and political
clout of their members not to
maintain the stability of our communities. These organizations contribute
great amounts of money to the campaigns of their favored candidates in
every city, county, state and federal
election. Add to this the fact that
many elected ofcials directly or indirectly prot from rental property, and
we are faced with enormous obstacles
to protect renters who make up anywhere from 40 percent to 50 percent
of the countys population who,
along with homeowners, are the real
grassroots.

The single solution that these task


forces and committees come up with
is to build more
affordable housing
someday. This
is a huge red herring. As we read
again and again in
the news, developers are being
allowed to build luxury rentals rapidly, even on city-owned land. Rather
than include affordable units, they
donate a few million here and there for
the cities to build their own affordable
housing, which the cities cannot
afford or dont have the political will
to build.
Even if the stars all aligned, we cannot build enough affordable housing
to sustain our countys needs. Already
we are losing teachers; we have no
substitutes for classrooms; rst
responders live across the Bay or
even farther away; elderly people are
disappearing from the Peninsula,
many becoming sick or dying from
the stress of moving. As families
move further east, they leave their
children alone more hours of the day
as they clog the freeways to get to
their jobs here medical assistants,
caregivers, city and county employees, ofce workers, chefs, hairdressers and retail staff. Homeowners
nd their adult children cannot move
out, or have moved far away along
with the grandchildren. We are creating more social problems in other
cities as we displace more and more of
our long-term renters. And the
Peninsula is losing its character and
integrity along the way.
Renters all over San Mateo County
have been humiliated, maligned, neglected and insulted by some members
of their own city councils, many of
their landlords, SAMCAR and CAA.
Treated as second-class disposable
people and having virtually no hous-

perspective
ing security, most of them are afraid
to step up and speak out about their
fear, increased impoverishment and
conditions of their rentals. They fear
losing their homes and often consequently their jobs, churches, medical
providers and schools. A big consequence of this is their lack of participation in our local democracy, which
only serves the goals of the lobbyists.
Several Realtors and landlords have
told us privately that they are
appalled at the displacement occurring in the county about what is
happening to renters. But the organizations that purport to represent them
have only increased prots and political power as their missions. We need
to get these foxes out of the henhouses of every level of government inuence. For-prot lobbyists should
have no further say in the housing
policies of our cities.
The only way to stop the bleeding
in this county is to stabilize rents and
enact just cause eviction protections.
Renters need to know how much their
housing costs will increase and have
the assurance that they cannot be
thrown out of their homes without a
valid reason just like homeowners.
We need housing security. Rent stabilization will afford decent prots for
landlords and renter protections will
ensure stability for everyone the
homeowners, renters and businesses
in our communities.

More development

Editor,
Julia Lees letter We need development in the Feb. 17 edition of the
Daily Journal is both right and
wrong. While it is true that young
people want to return to the areas
where they grew up, namely the
Peninsula, it is also true that continuing development at the present rate
does not help that dream. San Mateo
County was always a place where the
different wage level earners live

workers could both afford the area.

The vast majority of the developments done in the last few years were
aimed at wage earners in the upper
range. Rents went sky high. The
rents in these new developments have
tempted landlords in apartments
through San Mateo County to follow
the trend of higher rents. Call it whatever you want, but higher rents just
drive out the middle class and keep
the young beginners from ever returning to the area. Asking for more
development will not lower the rents
or make it easier for young returning
people to buy or rent in this area. The
two major signs to stop this inux of
developers to our area are simple. One

The power
of harmony
M

ost musicians will attest that harmony cannot


ow through a musical instrument without the
assistance of a skilled performer.
Take the piano, for example. A piano is comprised of
hundreds of components that together, produce from 88
keys a sound with the capacity to arouse deep inspiration,
love and emotion. Similar sentiments can be expressed
about other instruments such as a saxophone, a trumpet, a
guitar or a drum. Remove just one of an instruments major
components and it will no longer possess the capacity to
create beautiful music, and may very well produce a sound of
great discord. Likewise, if a composer plays an instrument
with disregard or lack of skill,
the sound produced is likely to
be subpar at best.
I learned this lesson early in
my childhood as I took piano
lessons to prepare for a church
recital. In my rst lesson, I
quickly realized how poorly the
instrument sounded as I banged
on the keys with my untrained
hands. Believe me, my teacher
and parents were just as annoyed
as I was to hear the sounds of an
instrument being played by a
Jonathan Madison
performer without talent or
skill.
Nevertheless, with time and effort, I learned to play the
piano in a way that produced a resonating harmony. By the
time that my recital came along, I had learned to play the
keys with a pace, depth and rhythm that captivated the audience just enough to disregard the subtle mistakes I made.
I reect on that experience when I consider the forces that
comprise our vast universe. Like the hundreds of requisite
components for the piano to produce a harmonious sound,
scientists believe that more than 200 known conditions
must exist for a planet to support life. Take away just one of
those conditions and life on that planet cannot exist.
Nevertheless, human life has continued to survive and
regenerate throughout the test of time.
I consider these factors an orchestra of instruments that
together, produce the world we inhabit. From the oxygen
we breath to the rhythmic drum beat of our hearts producing
blood through our veins, each of us are instruments of our
universe.
World-renowned theoretical physicists such as Michio
Kaku suggest that our universe is comprised of a symphony
of vibrating strings. Kaku suggests that the laws of harmony govern both physics and chemistry, which are melodies
of vibrating strings. Moreover, Kaku believes that you and
I are cosmic music orchestrated on vibrating strings.
Kaku is certainly not the rst scientist to suggest that our
universe is a vibrant symphony. Albert Einstein once said
that his single greatest reason for believing in Gods existence was the cosmic harmony, order and beauty commanding the laws of our vast universe. Einstein recognized that
the cosmos certainly could have been chaotic and volatile,
thus negating the possibility of our very existence. To
Einstein, this evidenced a divine presence within our vast
universe.
Some physicists see the same harmony evidenced in the
constructal law, a scientic principle fathered by experimental physicist Adrian Bejan. According to this principle,
every living thing manifests through the best possible
channels for the greatest ow of energy. Likewise, harmony is nothing more than the manifestation of vibrations
through proper channels.
The greatest vibrations on planet Earth ow throughout
each and every one of us. We know this because our very
existence is merely borrowed from the vast components of
the universe. That is why scientists conrm that our own
actions often dictate the health of our physical bodies.
Positive thinking and speaking has the capacity to create
harmony in the physical vibrations in our bodies, enabling
a healthier existence. By contrast, negative thoughts triggered by fear, stress and anger often produce volatile vibrations in the body, creating conditions for immune deciencies and disease in both the mind and body.
Perhaps our existence should follow the laws of cosmic
harmony. Let us embrace our temporary existence with a
peaceful means and appreciation. Let us acknowledge our
interdependence not only on nature, but on one another.
History tells us that humanity fails time and again to nd
peace and harmony in our existence, but that certainly
should never stop us from trying. Let us remember that we
are instruments of our universe, and should value our short
time here on Earth as such.

Oil prices lift market again, energy stocks rally

DOW JONES INDUSTRIALS

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK U.S. stocks


jumped Monday as the price of oil
surged again, lifting energy stocks
as well as mining and chemicals
companies. Indexes in Europe and
Asia also rose as investors hoped
for stimulus to strengthen the
economies of those regions and

materials and other goods.
The price of U.S. oil rose more
than 6 percent after a group of oilimporting countries said energy
stockpiles will grow at a slower
pace. Metals companies Alcoa and

HMBs Baustista on top


Athlete of the Week
By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Half Moon Bay senior Emilio Bautista joined


some elite company with his Central Coast
Section championship victory Saturday at
Independence High School.
Taking the title in the 120-pound division with a
narrow 4-3 victory over Sobratos Felipe Duenas,
Bautista became just the third wrestler in Cougars
history to win a CCS championship, joining the
likes of current HMB coach Sam Temko (160pound title in 2003) and Joey Wilson (152-pound
title in 2006).
Its like an unbelievable feeling, Bautista said.
Its like a dream come true I had since I began
wrestling.
The Cougars landed five CCS medals, a new program record, surpassing the mark of four medals
won at last years section meet. Three HMB
wrestlers took fourth place: EdRey Casamina
(115s), Tristan Keller (128s) and Ricky Camacho
(222s); and Evan Marschall (132s) took fifth place.
With the top three finishers in each weight class
advancing to the state tournament March 5 in
Bakersfield, Bautista was the only HMB wrestler to
qualify, an accomplishment for which he has been
named Daily Journal Athlete of the Week.
He was elated because hes had a really rough
season, Temko said. Hes been ranked really
high all season but hes been battling an injury in
a hip flexor. So he hasnt been getting as much mat
time as wed have liked.
Bautistas championship ride has come full circle since he started the year with a No. 1 ranking in
CCS during a season riddled with injuries.
In a sport where injury is commonplace, Bautista
had never experienced any season-altering ailments through three previous seasons at HMB.
Then during a practice in early December, he was in
the middle of daily mat drills when his sparing
partner awkwardly landed on Bautistas right leg,
causing a severe strain to the hip flexor.
Bautista initially tried to soldier through it, but
at the halfway point of the season, the senior had
to default out of Mid Cals in Gilroy a statewide

When the Skyline College womens basketball team took the court in last Fridays

Now, they know the 2015-16 season will
continue for at least one more game, as the
Lady Trojans (17-11 overall) earned the final

of 18, it was announced Monday.
Skyline enters at the No. 18 seed and will

tournament and one of the best gauges for how
teams and individuals on the stage of the state
meet after winning his first two matches of
the tourney convincingly by scores of 10-2
and 15-0.
Following that disappointing outing,
Bautista did not compete in the two final tournaments of the regular season. And while his
HMB teammates were making a push toward a
historic season, Bautista was facing the possibility his high school wrestling career was
over.
I was so bummed out, Bautista said.
Everybody was placing ahead of me. All my
friends like [Casamina and Marschall] were all
placing and I was just sitting at home looking
at their brackets.
All season long, the results of those brackets have been stunning. HMB went on to dominate the Peninsula Athletic League, capturing
eight individual boys titles at the PAL championships Feb. 13 at El Camino. No team in
HMB history had won as many; the previous
record was six, a mark set in 2005.
We were able to prove these guys were the
best team in the history of HMB wrestling,
Temko said. So its been pretty exciting
watching them prove it.
And yes, Bautista was one of the Cougars
magnificent eight first-place medalists. The
senior paced his recovery to be ready for the
postseason, with a lot of pep talks from
Temko and head coach Tom Baker along the
way.
According to Bautista, the most influential
of these pep talks came from Baker, who himself suffered a leg injury his senior year when
he was in high school. Bakers injury, howev-

final week of regular-season games last week,


was hopefully the Trojans might be in line for
a home game in Wednesdays play-in round,
now hes happy the team has simply lived to
fight another day.
Were just happy were in, Watters said.
When youre in youre in. You have to beat
teams no matter what. So unless youre the
No. 1 or No. 2 team in the state where you get
the home-court advantage all the way
through, it doesnt matter.
American River finished in fifth place in
the Big 8 Conference, arguably the toughest
conference in Northern California. The
Beavers are paced by a pair of guards, as sophomore Hayleigh Filer averages 16 points per
game and freshman Jennifer Manduca ranks

second on the team with 12.3 ppg.


Theyre very good, Watters said. They
have pretty good size. They have a couple big
girls inside. Their point guard handles the
ball well and shares the ball pretty well. And
looking at the box scores, it looks like they
shoot themselves to victory.
Skyline hasnt travelled to Sacramento to
play American River in nine years, during
Watters first year on staff as an assistant coach.
And hes hoping last Fridays easy-going attitude carries over to a playoff atmosphere.
We were relatively carefree, Watters
said. We were pretty relaxed. So I hope
that feeling carries over. Wednesday could
be our last game together as a group, so
lets make the most of it.

er, was season ending. So, he implored


Bautista to not give up on his high school
career without a fight.
He told me not to let an injury bum you out
just keep on going, Bautista said.
It was just the motivation Bautista needed.
That pumped me up, Bautista said. To tell
you the truth, I didnt really feel healthy but
hey man its my last year. So I had to give it
my all.
After HMBs historic PAL performance,
Bautista set his sights on the CCS meet. As a
junior last season, he took third place but didnt fare too well at the state meet, ending his
season by going two and out. So this year his
goal was to get back to state and finish his
high school career as at least a top 12 finisher.
But Bautista first had to reclaim his top
standing in CCS. After advancing into the
final four with pins in each of his first three
matches, his semifinal showdown with
Gilroys Daniel Vizcarra was Bautistas keystone match of the day, as with it he would
clinch a spot in the state meet.
It was a tall order against powerhouse
Gilroy, which would go on to win six CCS
titles. And after a scoreless first round, Vizcarra
scored a two-point takedown in the second
round to take a 2-0 lead into the third round.
I was really nervous that I might lose that
one and my chance to go to state, Bautista
said.
Vizcarras lead looked destined to hold up
but, with 20 seconds remaining, Bautista
scored a reversal to tie it 2-2 and force overtime, where Bautista finished off the comeback
with a cradle for a two-point takedown and a 42 win.
In the championship bout against Duenas,
Bautista again trailed 2-0, falling behind early
in the first round. But by the end of the round,
he scored an escape to jump ahead 3-2. With
Bautista taking on a defensive strategy from
there, Duenas got his best chance with 30 seconds remaining in the match.

With Bautista leading 4-2, he attacked


Bautistas bad leg and scored a single-point leg
hold. Duenas got a good hold of him, but
Bautista sprawled and used his limber frame to
hold his opponent in check until the final
buzzer, preserving the championship win.
Bautista said his hip was sore Monday after
experiencing intermittent pain throughout the
CCS finals. But its being able to fight
through the pain that has Bautista back on top
in CCS and looking for more.
Unfortunately, were still battling this leg
injury and it was still bothering him
[Saturday], Temko said. Its like I told him, at
this point its mind over matter.

ST. LOUIS A big hit sidelined San Joses Matt Tennyson


and fired up the Sharks.
Tomas Hertl, Logan Couture and Joe Thornton each scored
two goals, powering San Jose to a 6-3 victory over the St.
Louis Blues on Monday night.
Thornton also had two assists as San Jose
improved to 21-9-2 on the road, matching
their total road wins from last season. At
home, the Sharks are just 11-12-3.
Tennyson got hurt in the first period.
Blues forward Ryan Reaves rammed the
defenseman into the glass behind the San
Jose goal and smashed his face into the
divider. Tennyson dropped flat on his back
Matt Tennyson at 8:37, and Reaves received a 5-minute
major for boarding and a game misconduct penalty.
San Jose turned the sequence into two power-play goals.
I think thats the ultimate retribution for a hit like that is to
score two or three power-play goals and that decision basically
cost them the game, San Jose coach Peter DeBoer said. I
think Matts OK. Hes not great obviously. Hes probably concussed and will see what else.
Those are the kind of hits were trying to get rid of so Im
sure the league will deal with it.
St. Louis defenseman Robert Bortuzzo said the hit was not
intentional by Reaves.
The game is moving real quick out there. Reaves plays the
game hard and on the edge but hes never been known to be

Spaling has one goal and six assists in 35 games this season and has played extensively on the penalty kill.
The Sharks hope Polak and Spaling will join the team in
Colorado for a game Wednesday night. They are leaving a
team tied for the fewest points in the NHL for one in the
thick of the playoff race.
Its always good to play the games that actually mean
something, Polak said. If you have games that dont
mean anything, youre just playing because youre playing.
Its always good to go to a team that has a good chance in
the playoffs so you can play for something and every game

Wilson wanted to make upgrades without giving up a

Boston for goalie Martin Jones and third-rounder to Dallas

Bubba more concerned with


his head than with his swing
By Doug Ferguson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES The swing has always


come easily to Bubba Watson.
He hits a golf ball with so much natural ability combined with such an unorthodox style
that it piqued the curiosity of Tiger Woods
when Watson first got on the PGA Tour, and
even now its enough to cause his peers to
stop and watch on the practice range.
His entourage has never included a swing
coach. Its all Bubba.
Some of the shots he hits are so creative.
He really has his style of golf under control,
Adam Scott said. I dont think you can teach
it. Hes just such a natural talent. Watching a
guy hit 5-iron to four different greens on the
range about 85 yards, 120, 170 and 240 is
pretty fun to watch.
Scott didnt have to watch him on Sunday,
which was just as well because it might not
have been all that fun for guys trying to beat
him at the Northern Trust Open. Watson took
the lead for the last time by swinging so hard
that he nearly came out of his shoes on the
par-5 17th. The ball traveled 334 yards up the
hill, setting up a 2-iron that went 256 yards
and led to a two-putt birdie. He wound up winning by one shot over Scott and Jason
Kokrak.
He called it Bubba Golf when he won the
first of his two Masters titles in 2012.
Everyone knows what that is when they see it.
Its just hard to describe.
Im not trying to do anything. I dont work
on anything, Watson said. I just play golf. I
see a shot and try to hit it. Im scared to death
on most of them, but I try to hit it anyway.
The challenge for Watson is what goes on
between his ears, and what occasionally
comes out of his mouth.
Watsons life is filled with conflict. He rubs
some players the wrong way by bragging
about the value of his watch. But there are
plenty of other moments of quiet charity, such
as the time he walked into a tournament office
and wrote a $50,000 check to help with tsunami victims in Japan without saying a word.
He doesnt like big crowds, but he couldnt
leave Riviera fast enough Saturday night so he
could get to the Clippers-Warriors game and
be part of the celebrity scene. He says he doesnt like a lot of attention, but he is constantly
posting videos of wild stunts and trick shots.
He is known for his prodigious tee shots,
and one year at Doral he would turn to make
sure fans were watching as he bashed tee shots
to the back of the range. But then he refused to
take part in a long drive competition at the
PGA Championship two years ago.

Watson said is trying to


get better, even though he
accepts that he has flaws.
Most of the credit goes
to his wife, Angie, and his
caddy, Ted Scott, with
whom he has worked for
close to a decade.
Angie is a saint. For
Bubba Watson her to marry me ... she
might have issues, too, I
guess, Watson said.
The wisecracks come easily when a trophy
is nearby.
If Angie has changed as much as I have
since the day Teddy met me in 2006, wed call
her the second Mother Teresa. You know what
I mean? Watson said. Me, Im just a loser. I
started as an F and now Im a D-plus. But me
as a person has changed, and thats what is
happening in my golf. Not the swing.
The swing? he said dismissively. I can
hit shots.
Watson wept when he won the Travelers
Championship for his first PGA Tour title in
2010, and he nearly flooded the 10th green at
Augusta National in 2012 when he beat Louis
Oosthuizen in a playoff for his first major.
He doesnt cry as much anymore.
Yes, he still gets angry. One video that
showed up on social media at the Hero World
Challenge was Watson screaming at the
ground to say, MUD BALL! after an errant
shot caused by a speck of mud. It looks as
though he is harping on Scott when shots
dont go his way, but that was a product of a
rant caught on TV a few years ago.
Watson said he was hurt by the verbal abuse
he endured at the Phoenix Open two weeks
ago, when he started his week by saying he
didnt like changes to the TPC Scottsdale and
that he was playing mainly for his sponsors
that week. He felt his comments were misconstrued in a headline. Watson said he reads only
the headlines, and he believes thats all anyone else does. He was booed so often Saturday
in Phoenix that at least one player complained on his behalf to the tour.
Watson tries to pretend he doesnt care what
people think or what they say.
But he does.
Deep down, the human side of me, yes, Im
pretty mad about it, Watson said. But Ive
got to get over it. Ive got to be a better man.
And with those comments, Ive got to figure
out how to answer things better. All the stuff
going on in my head that weve been working
on in the last 11 years of PGA Tour life, Ive
got to get better at it. I think Ive made the
right steps, but the bad stuff is going to pop
out every once in a while.

ERIC HARTLINE/USA TODAY SPORTS

Jimmy Rollins will leave L.A. after one season to play in the AL for the first time in his career.

Rollins inks deal with White Sox


This guys a leader, brings energy and a
competitive each day.
The White Sox are scheduled to hold their
first full-squad workout on Wednesday.
Rollins is expected to report on Thursday.
A three-time All-Star and four-time Gold
Glove shortstop for Philadelphia, Rollins
helped the Phillies win the World Series in
2008 and the NL pennant the following year.
A switch-hitter, he struggled at the plate in
his lone season with the Los Angeles Dodgers,
hitting .224 last year with 13 homers and 41
RBIs. He was fifth among NL shortstops with
a .983 fielding percentage. But at 37, the question is how productive he can be.
I think thats why we are in here for
spring training, manager Robin Ventura
said. Well see how hes feeling when he
goes out there. We are willing to give him
that opportunity to find out.

By Andrew Seligman
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

GLENDALE, Ariz. Looking to add an


experienced shortstop, the Chicago White
Sox acquired a former National League MVP.
Jimmy Rollins a second-round draft
pick of the Philadelphia Phillies in 1996
out Alamedas Encinal High School
agreed Monday to a minor league contract
with the White Sox, who hope he can bring
provide leadership as well as a solid glove
and bat. He would get a $2 million, one-year
contract if added to the 40-man roster.
The move appeals to us on a number of
levels, general manager Rick Hahn said.
Its another quality option for our infield,
some veteran depth in that area where we
previously did not have it, and adds to what
we feel is a quality mix in the clubhouse.

Study: Anti-AIDS vaginal ring partially protects women


By Lauran Neergaard
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Women who inserted a


vaginal ring coated with an anti-AIDS drug
once a month were partially protected
against HIV infection, researchers said
Monday as they released long-awaited
results from two large studies in Africa.
The ring proved safe although the protection was modest, reducing overall HIV
infection by less than a third. Surprisingly,
the ring worked far better in women 25 and
older, leaving researchers wondering if the
youngest women, who got little to no benefit, simply didnt use the device properly.
Women make up more than half of the
nearly 37 million people worldwide living
with HIV, most of them in hard-hit Africa,
and scientists have long sought tools to
help them protect themselves when their
partners wont use a condom.
Despite questions the studies raise, the
nonprofit International Partnership for

promising enough to seek appropriate regulatory approval for wider use in parts of
Africa.
You cant just say, Until something is
perfect, were going to wait, said Dr. Zeda
Rosenberg, founding chief executive officer of IPM. We have to give women
options.
For a woman to have a prevention tool
that she can control is an incredibly important goal, added Dr. Jared Baeten of the
University of Washington, who led a
National Institutes of Health-funded study
of the ring. I want rings, pills and other
strategies to be on the shelf for women so
they can make choices for whats going to
work for them.
Aside from condoms, HIV prevention
tools include taking a daily anti-AIDS pill.
That so-called pre-exposure prophylaxis
isnt widely available in poor countries,
and other attempts at HIV-blocking vaginal

gels havent yet panned out.


But the age disparity found in the vaginal
ring studies is so puzzling that the NIH
plans to consult with outside experts on
next research steps.
While women need a discreet form of HIV
prevention, its going to be absolutely
critical to determine if the younger women
really didnt follow instructions, or if there
was some biological difference, cautioned
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIHs
National Institute for Allergy and Infectious
Diseases.
Vaginal rings are sold in the U.S. for
birth control, but the anti-AIDS version
tested in Africa contained no contraception.
Instead, it slowly oozes an experimental
virus-blocking drug named dapivirine into
the surrounding vaginal tissue. Women
would replace the ring once a month, when
it was time for another dose.

Study: Charlie Sheens HIV disclosure had big online impact


By Lindsey Tanner
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO Actor Charlie Sheen was


called a lot of things during his bad-boy
days. Until now, public health promoter
wasnt one of them.
Sheens revelation that hes infected with
the AIDS virus prompted the greatest number of HIV-related Google searches recorded
in the United States since 2004, and more
than 1 million of them involved public
health-related information.
Thats according to a new study from San
Diego State University research professor
John Ayers and colleagues, who examined
the impact of the announcement Nov. 17 by
the former star of TVs Two and a Half
Men.
While no one should be forced to reveal
HIV status, Sheens disclosure may benefit
public health by helping many people learn

al, giving Republicans political cover to
help Democrats reach the supermajority
required to pass the legislation.
Still, only Democrats supported the tax
plan negotiated by Gov. Jerry Brown in a
joint Assembly-Senate committee Monday.
California has for years levied a tax on
Medi-Cal managed care organizations,
drawing down federal matching dollars to
help pay for the states health insurance
plan for the poor. But President Barack
Obamas administration said it would not
renew the arrangement once it expires this

more about HIV infection


and prevention, the
researchers wrote in a
report published Monday
in
JAMA
Internal
Medicine.
They analyzed Google
trends data along with
news trends from a
Charlie Sheen Bloomberg LP terminal
system
from
2004
through three weeks after Sheens
announcement.
Given historic trends, there were almost 3
million more searches about HIV on Nov.
17 than expected, and more than 1 million
were related to important public health messages because they included search terms for
condoms, HIV symptoms or HIV testing.
The study doesnt list the total number of
HIV-related searches that day on Google.
The researchers also found there were
more than 6,500 HIV-related news stories

While no one should be forced to reveal HIV


status, Sheens disclosure may benefit public health by helping
many people learn more about HIV infection and prevention.
Report published in JAMA Internal Medicine

The researchers noted that former NBA


star Magic Johnson sparked increased HIV
awareness when he disclosed his own infection, in 1991, before the Internet was so
ubiquitous. They said public health authorities could leverage the Charlie Sheen

effect to keep the spotlight on HIV awareness, and that Sheens disclosure could
potentially have a greater impact because
of how connected people are to information.
About 1 million people nationwide are
HIV-infected but government estimates say
about 150,000 of them dont know it emphasizing the importance of better
awareness, Ayers said.
A journal editorial says public health
authorities face a challenge when blockbuster celebrity health news surfaces, and
need to make sure useful health information
is easily accessible to consumers at such
moments.

summer unless California restructured its


tax to apply more broadly, including to
lucrative private insurance plans.
Allowing the tax to lapse would open a
$1.1 billion hole in the budget for MediCal, even as doctors warn that already low
payments make it difficult for them to take
on patients covered by the program.
Brown last year called a special session to
resolve the issue but was unable to craft a
plan that could clear the Legislature.
The Brown administration and insurers
this month agreed to impose a new tax on
insurance plans, allowing the state to continue collecting the federal matching dollars. The new tax would be offset by reductions in other levies on insurance plans.
The industry as a whole is expected to pay
about $100 million less in taxes, but each

company would be affected differently.


The tax changes would need the Obama
administrations approval before taking
effect.
Most insurers have publicly supported the
measure or at least said theyre not opposed.
The California Association of Health Plans
said the agreement would secure funding for
Medi-Cal while protecting affordability
of insurance premiums.
Last week, the National Federation of
Independent Business and the Howard Jarvis
Taxpayers Association, two groups influential with Republicans, said they were not
opposed.
There is no concrete evidence that any
costs that may result from the (tax plan)
will be passed onto ratepayers, the Howard
Jarvis group wrote in a memo to lawmakers.

To win Republican votes, the administration agreed to devote nearly $300 million
to services for people with developmental
disabilities, whose care providers have
struggled to manage years of stagnant
wages. That spending plan, ABX2-1,
cleared the committee unanimously.
But in a sign of how divided the GOP still
is, Republicans withheld their support from
the tax plan, SBX2-2. Some Republicans
argue lawmakers should use the states budget surplus to beef up the Medi-Cal budget.
We should all be encouraged with how far
this proposal has come since last year,
including restoring funding services for the
most vulnerable in our society, Fuller said
in a statement. I still believe we can invest
in Californias priorities without this
health care revenue plan.

The investigation started when his 16year-old client, whose family he had been
working with since 2011, told her mother
that Sedillo-Messer had a sexual relationship with her between June and July 2014,
including at motels in Bakersfield and
Redwood City, at a San Mateo County
beach and even in the Child Protective
Services office.
Investigators then found a second 16year-old girl who said Sedillo-Messer had
taken her to a San Jose hotel and had sex
with her, according to prosecutors.

Sedillo-Messer was initially charged


with 20 felonies for the abuse 11 counts
of oral copulation with a person under the
age of 18, two counts of sexual penetration of a person under 18 and seven counts
of unlawful sexual intercourse with a person under 18.
He pleaded not guilty to all charges after
his arrest, but changed his plea Friday to
no contest for five counts of felony oral
copulation with a minor and five counts of
unlawful intercourse with a minor. He
agreed to a sentence of nine years in

prison in the plea deal, prosecutors said.

not counting duplicates from the same


news source on Google News alone on
Nov. 17, reversing a decadelong decline in
news reporting about the virus.
Sheens tumultuous professional and personal life has made news before for public outbursts, drug and alcohol use and prostitution. The study didnt look at the online
impact of those headlines.

Sedillo-Messer had been free on


$400,000 bail on the condition that he
not contact either victim after his arrest,
but violated the order by contacting the
first victim, according to prosecutors. He
was then held on $2 million bail, though
prosecutors have declined to file charges
for the alleged violation of the no contact
order.
He is scheduled to return to court for sentencing on April 12.

Health briefs
Obama sends Congress
$1.9B request to combat Zika virus

REUTERS FILE PHOTO

Sen. Bernie Sanders, left, speaks to Hillary Clinton during the Democratic presidential candidates debate in Durham, N.H.

Health care issue, longtime


uniter of Dems, now divides
By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Health care for all.


Its a goal that tugs at the heartstrings of
Democrats, but pursuing it usually
invites political peril.
Now Bernie Sanders and Hillary
Clinton are clashing over this core question for liberals, making it a wedge
issue in the partys presidential primary.
Its a choice between his conviction
that a government-run system would be
fairer and more affordable, and her preference for step-by-step change at a time
of widespread skepticism about federal
power.
The late Sen. Edward Kennedy once
championed a Sanders-like singlepayer system, yet during nearly 47
years in office Kennedy also embraced
less sweeping and more politically feasible ideas. Health care realists greeted
President Barack Obamas law as vindication. But with 29 million still uninsured and deductibles of over $3,000 for
taxpayer-subsidized coverage, some
Sanders supporters call it the
Unaffordable Care Act.
Health care for everyone remains the
aim for Democrats. The differences are
over the best way to get there.
Its compelling to see the longstanding argument over big, revolutionary
change versus more incremental change
personified in two candidates, Bernie
and Hillary, said John McDonough, an
aide to Kennedy during the Obama
health overhaul debate.

The Affordable Care Act made some


improvements for some people, but the health
care system is failing lots of Americans. ... That made it
inevitable that further reform would be back on the table.
Steffie Woolhandler, a longtime single-payer activist and primary-care physician

The worry is about provoking a fatal


backlash from the political right.
Bernie speaks to the hearts of
Democrats, and Hillary speaks to the
head, added McDonough, now a professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of
Public Health. Its about who is more
in tune with the actual opportunity and
possibility of the time.
Both candidates seem to be struggling
to clearly frame the issue.
Sanders sees the destination, but hasnt been able to lay down a roadmap for
getting there. Clinton cant seem to fit
her menu of tweaks into a persuasive
vision. Theyre talking past each other,
said Yale professor Ted Marmor, in a
dialogue of the deaf that leaves voters
confused.
Signed almost six years ago, Obamas
health overhaul is the starting point for
Democrats who would succeed him.
About 16 million people have gained
coverage, and the uninsured rate has fallen to 9 percent, a historic achievement.
Economic recovery helped, but the
biggest increases in coverage came after
the health laws insurance markets and
Medicaid expansion got going in 2014.
Nonetheless, 28.8 million remain
uninsured, and many are still struggling

to pay for care even though they have


coverage. A government survey estimated that 44.5 million people under age 65
were in families with problems paying
medical bills. On top of that,
Obamacare is mind-numbing to many
consumers, a program that combines
two of the most complicated areas:
insurance and taxes.
The Affordable Care Act made some
improvements for some people, but the
health care system is failing lots of
Americans, said Steffie Woolhandler, a
longtime single-payer activist and primary-care physician. That made it
inevitable that further reform would be
back on the table.
Under Sanders plan there would be no
premiums, no deductibles, no copayments, no hospital bills. Instead,
thered be significant tax increases.
Government-run health care in the
worlds richest country in theory should
be able to cover everyone and keep
costs manageable, but Sanders has been
unable to demonstrate that the math
behind his plan adds up. One analysis
found he overestimates how much his
proposed new taxes would raise; another
concluded he underestimates the plans
costs.

WASHINGTON President Barack Obama Monday sent


lawmakers an official $1.9 billion request to combat the
spread of the Zika virus in Latin America
and the U.S.
He is also requesting flexibility to use
a limited portion of leftover funds provided in 2014 to fight Ebola to take on
Zika, which has been linked to severe
birth defects. Top House Republicans
told the White House last week that the
quickest way to get the money to fight
Zika would be to use some of the approxBarack Obama imate $2.7 billion that had been designated for the Ebola crisis but remains
unobligated. Consideration of a stand-alone Zika request
could prove cumbersome, especially in a combative election year.
Zika has been spreading through countries such as
Brazil, but is also being transmitted by mosquitoes in
Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and American Samoa.
Travelers have also returned to the continental U.S. infected with the virus.
So far, concerns over Zika have been far more restrained
than experienced during the Ebola scare. Voters fears
regarding Ebola were seen as hurting Obamas party in the
2014 midterm landslide.
Obama said Monday during a meeting with the nations
governors that he hoped to work with them in guarding
against the outbreak of the disease. Obama said the $1.9
billion he is requesting would include investments in
research into new vaccines and better diagnostic tools, and
more support for Puerto Rico and territories where there are
confirmed cases.
Obama stressed that the symptoms from contracting the
Zika virus are mild and most folks dont even realize they
have it.

CDC team kicks off study


in Brazil focused on Zika
JOAO PESSOA, Brazil A 16-member team of the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is starting work
on a case-control study aimed at determining whether the
Zika virus really does cause babies to be born with the devastating birth defect microcephaly, as Brazilian researchers
strongly suspect.
The study kicked off on Monday with a training session
in Joao Pessoa, a city in Brazils northeastern region that is
the epicenter of the South American nations Zika outbreak.
The CDC team is working with dozens of members of
Brazils Health Ministry, as well as Paraiba states health
secretariat.
The team members will fan out though Paraiba starting
Tuesday to track down babies with microcephaly and their
mothers. Blood samples will help determine whether the
mothers had Zika.

skyrocketing cost of living.


Rothrock is facing displacement for
the second time in her life after a former San Bruno apartment she lived in
was converted to condominiums,
which forced her to move.
While searching for a new place to
live, she stumbled into the cafe where
Hatch worked, and after a brief discussion, the two agreed to be roommates.
Rothrock, a native of rural
Nebraska, said she struggles to understand the competition and occasional
perceived ruthlessness which has
become associated with the San Mateo
County real estate market.
Im not used to all the affluence,
she said. It is just a situation of
greed.
Rothrock said she is working with
the Burlingame Advocates for Renter
Protections to get the attention of

U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo,


and hopefully develop policies granting consideration by landlords for
evicted tenants.
The fight over tenants rights could
continue in the courtroom too, as
attorneys Nanci Nishimura and Nancy
Fineman, of the Cotchett, Pitre &
McCarthy law firm, have volunteered
to advocate on behalf of Hatch.
The law firm is considering filing a
lawsuit against the landlord claiming
the verbal agreement has been violated, which, when combined with the
considerable amount of care Hatch has
invested into the property over the
past six decades, equates to a breach of
contract.
A promise is a promise, and that
should be enforced, said Fineman.
Hatchs son Gary said he wished the
land owners would give greater consideration to his mothers quality of life
in her later years.
I would like her to be able to stay
here, he said.
Yet despite the adverse circumstances, Gary Hatch said he believes
his mother is holding up pretty well,
all things considered.
Shes pretty strong, he said.
Though she understands her future is
likely beyond her control, Hatch is
hopeful she can stay put.
Its my home, she said while sitting in the living room, surrounded by
pictures of her family. I cant say its
my house, but its my home.

Can we stop saying rent control.


This is not a rent control debate,
Speier said.
San Mateo Councilman David Lim
chimed in that he was virtually
attacked by the real estate community
for being in favor of rent control when
he introduced an a temporary urgency
ordinance to prevent evictions without
just cause.
Property owners in the county can
raise rents overnight as high as they
wish and evict anyone without just
cause.
The average rent for a one-bedroom
apartment in the county is now
$2,575, a 52.3 percent increase in four
years.
Foster City resident Amy Shulman
said her $2,500 a month rent now
takes up 75 percent of her take home
pay.
School teacher Barbara ONeill said
she received a $1, 100 a month
increase overnight and that rent consumes 60 percent of her paycheck.
Some landlords said simply that it is
a supply and demand issue and that
more housing needs to be built in the

area to prevent displacement.


Others said theyve sought help
from the government but that the wait
list for Section 8 housing vouchers
has thousands and thousands of peoples names on it.
Oscar Vasquez said he had to move
his family into the mechanics shop
where he works after being evicted for
no reason.
Daddy why dont we have a home,
one of his children asked him while
they were essentially homeless.
Vasquez said he didnt consider himself
to be poor.
Near the end of the meeting, Speier
suggested a Lifeline cap should be
placed on rents for seniors and individuals with disabilities similar to programs offered by utilities.
Its a half-baked idea at this point,
she said.
Many in the audience held signs up
mostly urging rent stabilization.
Others held signs, however, that read:
Take care of strangers. Why? My
aging parents need help 2!
More than 200 people attended the
town hall.

SENIORS
Continued from page 1
Through a press release issued by his
attorney Michael Liberty, Kantz disputes whether such an agreement with
Hatch and Kruse ever existed, and
intends to carry out the eviction.
Kantz is willing to give some consideration to the tenants, according to
the press release, including offering to
work with the potential buyers of the
property to see whether Hatch can stay
in her home, or if necessary, negotiating a relocation assistance package
with the help of city officials.
As word of Hatchs and Rothrocks
dilemma has spread, community members have jumped to action, starting an
online fundraising campaign designed
to offer financial assistance to the
threatened tenants.
At the time of this article, more than
$10,000 has been donated by more
nearly 300 people in roughly one day
since the campaign began Sunday,
Feb. 21.
Hatch said she is thrilled to have
received the support from the community, though it was unanticipated.
It makes me feel wonderful that people want me to stay here, she said.
Both tenants depend solely on
Social Security income to pay their
rent, and fear they would not be able to

increasing cost of child care.
This is beyond politics and economics. Its a moral issue, Speier
said.
She noted how most San Mateo
police officers and Sheriffs Office
deputies and correctional officers live
out of the county.
She also pointed out the imbalance
of new job creation in the county to
new housing units constructed in
recent years. The county has added
55,000 new jobs but only 2,100 housing units, she said.
Speier was joined by a large group of
elected officials and city staff who then
listened to the plight of many who
have faced no cause evictions or rent
hikes of $1,000 overnight.
This is about renters and for
renters, said Speier, who later pleaded
with the crowd at St. Bartholomews
church to stop using the phrase rent
control.
