Agency vetoes sewer work


Sewer pipe system needs major upgrade; delays could cost ratepayers $100 million
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The West Bay Sanitary District vetoed


preliminary design work for a necessary
$479 million pipeline replacement project
Thursday that baffled proponents of the
project.
The Silicon Valley Clean Water board
voted 3-1 to fund preliminary design work
to replace about 9 miles of sewer pipe that

is prone to crack.
The board is comprised of elected officials
from Belmont, San Carlos, Redwood City
and West Bay. But West Bays vote is
weighted, meaning it can veto any major
funding proposal.
West Bay contends it does not want to
raise rates for its customers and that perhaps
the cost of the overall project could possibly shrink by delaying it.
District officials first recommended the

replacement project in 2006 and environmental reviews are already underway.


Delaying the project could cost ratepayers an additional $100 million, according
to district officials.
Belmont Councilman Warren Lieberman
called West Bays vote irresponsible.
He was also perturbed that West Bay sent
an alternate member of its board to vote on
Thursdays agenda item. George Otte represented West Bay at the meeting and said his

vote was tied to his boards decision. He


offered little information as to why West
Bay is against starting the design work
now. He referred to a letter the board sent to
Silicon Valley Clean Water asking that the
vote to start the preliminary design work be
put off until April 2017.
Lieberman said West Bays short-term
interest will get much more expensive

San Diego zoo burns


$1M in rhino horn products
SAN DIEGO San Diego zoo officials on Thursday burned items containing rhinoceros horn with an estimated
black market value of $1 million in a
symbolic gesture to show the United
States is committed to ending illegal
wildlife trafficking.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
partnered with the zoo and California
Department of Fish and Wildlife to hold
the massive bonfire of items at the San
Diego Zoo Safari Park.
The bonfire was the first of its kind in
the United States. Countries around the
world have been burning and destroying illegal wildlife products to send the
message that such products cannot be
traded and that poaching of animals for
their horns must stop. In April, 120
tons of elephant ivory and 1.3 tons of
rhino horn were destroyed in Kenya.
The items from carved horns to
products falsely marketed as having
medicinal qualities from the horns
were confiscated in the United States
and outside the country, said zoo
spokeswoman Darla Davis.
Officials say a rhino is poached every
eight hours in Africa and they could
become extinct in the wild in 15 years.
In 2015, 1,175 rhinos were killed in
South Africa alone, according to the
San Diego zoo.

State extends most ambitious


climate change law in the U.S.
By Alicia Chang
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES A decade ago,


California vowed to dramatically slash
greenhouse gas emissions by 2020.
With the nations most populous state
on pace to meet that target, Gov. Jerry
Brown on Thursday charted a new goal to
further cut carbon pollution by extending
and expanding the landmark climate
change law.
It will keep California on the move to
clean up the environment, Brown said in
a Los Angeles park before signing a pair of
bills that survived heavy opposition from
the oil industry, business groups and
Republicans.
Experts said going forward will be more
challenging because the new goal to
reduce emissions 40 percent below 1990
levels by 2030 is considerably more
ambitious and many of the easy solutions
have been employed.
The long and the short of it is that
meeting the goal will require sustained regulatory effort across all sectors of the
economy, said Ann Carlson, a professor

of environmental law at
the
University
of
California,
Los
Angeles.
California is on track
to meet the 2020 climate goal that called for
reducing emissions to
1990 levels by restrictJerry Brown ing the carbon content
of gasoline and diesel
fuel, encouraging sales of zero-emission
vehicles and imposing a tax on pollution.
The state plans to build on that foundation and ramp up other efforts including
increasing renewable electricity use,
boosting energy efficiency in existing
buildings and putting 1.5 million zeroemissions vehicles on the road, according
to the California Air Resources Board,
which is in charge of climate policy.
Supporters overcame strong opposition
from oil companies and other industry
interests to pass the legislation a year
after business-friendly Democrats in the
Assembly derailed an even more ambitious
proposal to limit the use of oil in the
state.

Seven arrested in 23-inmate jail assault


By Allison Levitsky
BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

San Mateo County sheriffs deputies have


arrested seven outstanding suspects charged
in a 2015 assault in a county jail in
Redwood City.
On Oct. 21, 2015, 23 alleged gangmembers assaulted another group in a common
area at Maguire Correctional Facility.
The attack lasted for a little over a minute
before jail staff swarmed the area and deescalated the situation, Detective Salvador Zuno
said.
Two inmate victims were treated for facial
injuries at a hospital, and four sheriffs
office staff members sustained minor
injuries.
After a monthslong investigation by the
San Mateo County District Attorneys
office, jail staff, the Sheriffs Office Crime
Suppression Unit and the Gang Intelligence
Unit (GIU), the grand jury indicted all 23
suspects for assault with intent to inflict
great bodily injury and other gang-related
enhancements.
Arrest warrants were then obtained for the
23 suspects, including East Palo Alto resident Salvador Aguilar, 19, San Jose residents Michael Blanco, 40 and Abayomi

From Aug. 31 to Tuesday, sheriffs
deputies and county probation officers,
along with members of the GIU and the gang
task force, tracked down and arrested seven
of the eight outstanding suspects in
Redwood City and San Jose.
One suspect is still outstanding, Zuno
said.
The arrested suspects were booked back
into the Maguire Correctional Facility.
They are being held on bail ranging from
$225,000 to $775,000.
The collaborations between San Mateo
County Law Enforcement and the District

gang violence, no matter where it occurs,
will not be tolerated in San Mateo County.
We remain committed to the safety of our

Pair allegedly left


children in bathtub during sex

Local briefs

A man and woman pleaded not guilty Wednesday to


felony child endangerment charges for allegedly leaving
3-year-old and 10-month old children unattended in a
bathtub while engaging in sexual conduct at a South San
Francisco motel, prosecutors said.
Charlie Her, 29, and Mindy Trinh, 21, both of Fresno,
were staying at the Comfort Inn & Suites San Francisco
Airport Hotel at 121 E. Grand Ave. on Saturday when the
incident allegedly occurred, according to the San Mateo
County District Attorneys Office.
Trinh put her two young children in the bathtub and left
them alone while she and Her engaged in sexual conduct.
The 3-year-old then called out for Trinh, who found the
10-month-old unconscious in the water, prosecutors said.
Paramedics were called and the baby was resuscitated.
Because Her and Trinh allegedly lied to police about the
sequence of events and how long the children were unsupervised, they have also been charged with misdemeanor
obstructing an investigation, prosecutors said.
At Wednesdays arraignment in Redwood City, San
Mateo County Superior Court Judge Cristina Mazzei
issued a no-contact order listing both children as protected parties.
Both Her and Trinh remain in custody on $125,000 bail
and are scheduled to return to court on Sept. 20 for their
preliminary hearing.

Teen killed in solo crash on Skyline Boulevard


A passenger in a BMW was killed when the speeding car
careened down an embankment and slammed into two
trees in the Santa Cruz mountains near the San
Mateo/Santa Clara county line Thursday afternoon, a
California Highway Patrol officer said.
CHP officers responded to reports of a smoking vehicle
with an occupant still trapped inside off of Skyline
Boulevard near Page Mill Road at about 2:10 p.m., CHP
officials said.
According to the preliminary investigation, it appears
the driver was speeding south on Skyline when he lost
control of the car, veered into the northbound lane and
then crashed down an embankment on the opposite side
of the road, according to CHP Officer Art Montiel.
The car hit a tree 15 feet from the road and then another
tree 40 feet from the road. The front passenger, a 19-yearold San Martin resident, was pronounced dead at the
scene.
A rear passenger, a 19-year-old San Jose resident, suffered major injuries and was taken to Stanford Hospital
for treatment. The driver, a 17-year-old San Jose resident,
suffered only minor injuries, Montiel said.

Man dies after crashing


rented Ferrari off Highway 84
A 46-year-old man died after crashing a rented Ferrari
that was part of a caravan of expensive sports cars near
Woodside on Wednesday afternoon, a California Highway
Patrol spokesman said.
The victim, identified by the San Mateo County
Coroners Office as San Jose resident David Michael
Wright, was traveling west on state Highway 84 about a
mile west of state Highway 35 shortly after 12:25 p.m.,
CHP Officer Art Montiel said.
For a reason yet to be determined, Wright failed to
negotiate a left curve on the road and went about 100 feet
down an embankment before crashing into a redwood tree,
Montiel said.
He was ejected from the vehicle despite wearing a seatbelt and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to
Montiel.
The car was a rental from a San Jose-based Ferrari car
club and Wright was traveling with a group of other highend sports car enthusiasts, Montiel said.
Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be factors in the
crash. The cause remains under investigation, he said.

VIENTIANE, Laos President


Barack Obama said Thursday that
Republican Donald Trump proves he
isnt qualified to be president every
time he speaks, adding that he is confident Americans will ultimately reject
the brash billionaire on Election Day.
Obama, closing out his final presidential trip to Asia, said his meetings
with foreign leaders during the trip had
illustrated that governing is serious
business requiring knowledge, preparation and thought-out policies that
can actually be implemented. He urged
Americans not to allow the outrageous behavior seen amid the campaign-season din to become the new
normal.
The most important thing for the
public and the press is to just listen to
what he says and follow up and ask
questions to what appear to be either
contradictory or uninformed or outright whacky ideas, Obama said.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Throughout the campaign, Obama


has repeatedly denounced Trump and
deemed him unfit to serve as commander in chief, arguing that hes
pulling the Republican Party in a dangerous and unprecedented direction.
Obama has endorsed Hillary Clinton
and has said he plans to campaign fullforce for the Democrat ahead of the
November election.
Obamas remarks came at the end of a
grueling nine-day trip that took him to
Laos and China following U.S. stops
in Nevada, Hawaii and Midway Atoll in
the Pacific Ocean. Its the last of 10
trips Obama paid as president to Asia,
where Obama lived as a youngster with
his mother in Indonesia.
When I think back to the time I
spent here as a boy, I cant help but be
struck by the extraordinary progress
thats been made by the region in the
decades since, even if theres still a lot
of work to be done, Obama said.
At the top of the list of unfinished
business
is
the Trans-Pacific
Partnership, a 12-nation free trade deal
Obama helped broker.

KANSAS CITY, Missouri Hillary


Clinton blasted Donald Trump
Thursday for his
condemnation of
American military
generals and his
praise for Russian
President Vladimir
Putin, saying her
Republican opponent had failed at
Hillary Clinton proving he can be
commander
in
chief.
E v e r y
Republican holding
or seeking office in
this country should
be asked if they
agree with Donald
Trump about these
statements,
Donald Trump Clinton said in a
news conference
the morning after both candidates
appeared at a national security forum.
Trump did not directly respond to
Clintons critique Thursday. At a
speech in Cleveland, he tagged his
Democratic opponent with a new nickname trigger-happy Hillary and
repeated his incorrect claim that he
opposed the war in Iraq from the
beginning.
Still, Clinton indicated later in the
day that she does not want the final
weeks to be exclusively focused on
Trump, unveiling plans for a series of
policy speeches aimed at promoting a
positive message. That effort started
in Kansas City on Thursday night with
an address on faith at the National
Baptist Convention. Clinton did take
some thinly veiled shots at Trump, but
she also made an appeal to AfricanAmerican voters and reflected on her
Methodist faith.
Ive made my share of mistakes. I
dont know anyone who hasnt, said
Clinton. Its grace that lifts us up and
grace that leads us home.
The foreign policy discussion followed a Wednesday night national
security forum.

Lauers rough night increases
pressure on debate moderators
NEW YORK Traffic cop or truth detector? The rough reception given Matt Lauer for his back-to-back interviews with
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump laid bare
a disagreement over whether journalists
who moderate presidential debates should
call candidates out for telling lies.
Online critics hit Lauer for spending too
much time on Clintons email server and
trying to cut her answers short during
Wednesdays NBC forum on national security issues. The bulk of the attacks, however, centered on Lauers failure to challenge
Matt Lauer
Trump on the Republicans assertion that
he opposed the war in Iraq from its beginning, despite evidence of him supporting the war in a 2002 interview.
Everyone, and I mean everyone, knew this would happen,
tweeted Paul Krugman, columnist for The New York Times.
And Matt Lauer didnt have a followup planned?
The NBC Today show host wasnt talking on Thursday,
laying low on a day the hashtag Lauering the Bar trended on
Twitter. He made one knowing reference while interviewing
Dana Carvey on Today. The comic, impersonating Russian
leader Vladimir Putin, commended Lauer for his work at the
forum. You have a fan, he said.

Election officials push


back on Trumps rigged allegations
ATLANTA Election officials across the country are pushing back against Donald Trumps assertions that the presidential election may be rigged, arguing that too many safeguards
exist against engineered results nationally or in individual
states.
Claims of rigged contests are part of free speech, Iowa
Secretary of State Paul Pate, a Republican, said in an interview.
But I would tell voters not to overreact to some of the more
spirited language.
Its clear, though, that some supporters have taken Trumps
comments to heart. Trump told a town hall crowd in Columbus,
Ohio last month: Im afraid the election is going to be rigged;
I have to be honest, without elaborating.
In recent weeks, voters have linked the GOP nominees
remarks to attacks on two states voter registration databases
and questions surrounding the security of electronic voting
machines.

Young voters from newer


immigrant families lean more liberal
WASHINGTON Young Hispanic and Asian-Americans
who are immigrants or have an immigrant parent are more
likely to be liberal in their views on politics and immigration
than those with families who have been in United States
longer, a new GenForward poll shows.
Eighty-seven percent of those age 18 to 30 who are immigrants or who have parents who are immigrants support allowing those who were brought to the United States illegally as
children to stay legally, while 72 percent of those whose families have been in the U.S. longer agree. Eighty-five percent of
first and second generation Latino and Asian immigrants and
74 percent of those who are third generation or greater oppose
building a border wall.

Report: State officials still not


tracking mental health spending E
By Juliet Williams

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO California officials


still havent taken steps to better track how
$2 billion a year in voter-approved funding
for mental health programs is spent, despite
a critical audit 19 months ago that alerted
officials to the problems, according to a
report released Thursday by a state watchdog.
Weak financial reporting and limited
oversight of revenue have tainted
Proposition 63, known as the Millionaires
Tax, the Little Hoover Commission said in
the report sent to Gov. Jerry Brown and the
Legislature.
Twelve years and $17 billion later the
state still cant handily show the impacts of
this funding, how it is spent or who is
helped, the report said.
Commission Chairman Pedro Nava, a for-

House Republicans press


administration on Iran payment
WASHINGTON Obama administration
officials told Congress on Thursday that
Iran wanted immediate access to $1.7 billion paid by the United States in cash to settle a decades-old arbitration claim between
the two countries.
At a hearing called by House Republicans,
officials from the departments of Treasury,
State and Justice defended the payment and
its cash delivery. An initial $400 million
was delivered Jan. 17, the same day Tehran
agreed to release four American prisoners,

mer state lawmaker, said the panel heard


many success stories from within the program, but too many were anecdotal and there
was no statewide data to back up the transformative reports.
If counties and the state cant demonstrate the difference it makes for individuals,
their families and California as whole, it
may not survive, Nava said in a news
release accompanying the report.
The commissions findings echoed those
in an Associated Press investigation in
2012, a critical state audit in 2014, and the
Little Hoover Commissions previous
review in 2015.
The AP found that tens of millions of dollars generated by the tax went to general
wellness programs for people who had not
been diagnosed with any mental illness.
Those programs include yoga, gardening,
art classes and horseback riding. The state
auditor reported similar findings a year later.

Around the nation


and the Republicans are calling it a ransom.
Christopher Backemeyer, a deputy assistant secretary of state for Iranian affairs,
said Iran wanted immediate access to the
money, but he said he wasnt aware whether
Iran had asked for cash. He said it was his
understanding that the money is going to
critical economic needs in Iran.
GOP Rep. Sean Duffy of Wisconsin, chairman of the House Financial Services subcommittee on oversight and investigation,
said the evidence presented made it difficult
to believe the payment wasnt a ransom.

Generational divides

Local and global grandparenting


By Diana McDonough

ational Grandparents Day,


celebrated this year on Sept.
11, honors grandparents for
all the love and attention they give to
their beloved grandkids. Many of us
have loving memories of our own
grandparents. My famously thrifty
grandmother had a box for strings
too short to use (what?!). She also
fed us home-grown tomatoes every
summer doused in her legendary
combo, Miracle Whip and whipping
cream.
Of course, my grandmothers were
old. They wore house dresses and
stockings. I never pictured that I
would reach that antiquated state. But,
lo and behold, in 2004 I experienced
the wonderful gift of a granddaughter
and in 2007 she was joined by a sister. Im not an automatic baby lover
but I was thrilled.
I enjoyed my new found grandmotherly status more than I had ever imagined but one part of my granddaughters young lives bothered me the
volume of stuff they owned. By toddler age, my granddaughters rooms
were packed with more games, books,
dolls, balls and puzzles than could
actually be enjoyed.
Truth be told, their level of possessions was not remarkable in our privileged communities but, in a world
beset with so much poverty, it made
me uncomfortable.
I started to do some research. It
turns out that of the 7 billion people
in the world, 1 billion are drowning
in stuff while 1 billion are living on
less than $1.25 a day. And no one
gets to pick which 1 billion they are
born into. The contrast between our

grandchildren in
the top 1 billion
and those born
into the bottom 1
billion often
dying of malnutrition or disease
is stark.
I wanted to do
something about
this imbalance. Pondering this problem with a few friends, in 2011 we
conceived of Global Grandmothers, a
grassroots organization whose members commit to supporting children
worldwide through charitable giving.
One of our special plans of action
addresses this inequity more directly
than others. It is Give to a child
in need when you give to someone
you love. Buy your granddaughter a
birthday present; donate for a childs
education in Nepal. Give a Mothers
Day gift; contribute to an anti-trafcking hotline in the United States.
Its like self-matching, but we call it
linked giving.
To help make the giving part
easy, Global Grandmothers investigates the world of highly-rated, childcentered charities and selects a handful we can recommend wholeheartedly.
These you can nd on our website at
globalgrandmothers.org.
Right now we recommend nine
charities. Two examples are Room to
Read and Nurse-Family Partnership.
Room to Read works in 10 developing countries in Asia and Africa, hiring local authors and illustrators to
write childrens books in the local
language (Imagine there is no Dr.
Seuss-equivalent in poor countries).
They have now published more than
1,100 of these unique creations.
Nurse-Family Partnership is based

Guest
perspective
in the United States and provides lowincome, rst-time moms home visits
by a registered nurse weekly or biweekly from pregnancy to the
babys second birthday. Its statistics
evidence its incredible effectiveness:
for every $1 spent, $5 are saved in
government spending. NFP currently
sees more than 130 moms here in San
Mateo County.
For our members and me! giving to kids in need here and abroad
has expanded our world, our role as
grandparents, and has afforded us the
opportunity to leave a legacy bigger
than ourselves. Its grandparenting
2.0, except you dont have to speak
tech.
Our simple idea seems to be catching on. We now have more than 150
members in 21 states, plus
Washington, D.C., and two countries
beyond the United States. We are
proud to have been recognized in the
Nicholas Kristof/Sheryl WuDunn
book A Path Appears.
Global Grandmothers is another
way to be a grandparent. Best of all,
to be a global grandmother, you dont
have to be a grandmother at all.
Have a wonderful Grandparents Day!
Diana McDonough is a proud grandmother and San Mateo resident. She is
president of Global Grandmothers and

Before the voters of San Mateo,
Burlingame and Mountain View vote
toadopt rent control ordinances, they
might consider two opposing points
of view.
First, it is without dispute that
most economists and urban
expertsargue that short of re-bombing a city, rent control is almost as
destructive.
Second, the always wiseBenjamin

Democracy is two wolves (rent controllers, for example) and a lamb

his weekend, I came across a hashtag debate on


Twitter that started as a way to make fun of millennials and evolved into a generational battle.
I didnt take up too much time with the debate started by
#howtoconfuseamillennial, but I saw it go from people
talking about rotary phones and cursive to a fervent
reaction from the millennials about the savaging of
both the home and job market.
Im not sure where the debate went from there, but I
hope it just petered out. Im also not sure if it was the
baby boomers or Generation X that started it.
Even so, it made me realize that the time to stop making fun of the millennials is just about now. Some
might complain that they dont involve themselves in
politics but, when they do, we say they are misinformed. That may be true, but how many of the older
generations were well informed on the nuances of politics or finances at an early age? And how many are actually well informed even now?
Older generations complain the millennials are narcissistic and unaware of lifes
basics, yet the older generations are the ones who doled
out the trophies to all and
even moved away from teaching cursive or even writing
checks. The millennial generation is also very politically
active, or at least aware, and
accepting of others. They are
learning their way and it
would be a benefit to all generations if we simply stopped
mocking other generations
for their flaws, perceived or
otherwise.
As a member of Generation
X, we too were disparaged for our lack of work ethic and
directionless attitude. We were called slackers. Yet we
pulled our way out of the label to create new directions
with technology. While our effort largely failed with the
dot-com bust, we set the stage for the next generation.
We were assigned the X because we did not have an identifying characteristic like the boomers did, or even the
Greatest Generation that preceded them. It was suggested
we did not have a war to help identify us, yet we had the
gulf war that created a new generation of veterans,
though not on the scale of previous generations. So
now we are parents of some millennials and the next
generation, dubbed Generation Z or the Homeland
Generation, with birth years starting in the late 1990s
to the early 2000s, and even Generation Alpha, for
those born after. The thinking is that Alpha is often
chosen when the Greek alphabet is exhausted, but it
might be time to come up with something better.
But back to the obsession with millennials. Perhaps
it is because Generation X did not get the attention that
the boomers did that we react in such a way to the next
big generation, the millennials. Or maybe it is the
boomers who take digs at the new generation because
they are getting the attention they used to.
But primarily, we get it. Young people dont get our
era that much, perhaps its because we are not teaching
them about it. Perhaps its because we too are plugged
into our cellphones and dont care to pay attention. If
there are flaws with the millennials then we are partly to
blame. But really, it is time for the older generations to
stop mocking the younger ones and learn to appreciate
their skills and interests. After all, the younger generations are simply growing from the foundation we built
and it is up to us to guide them as they age and also
to learn from them.
Thomas Jefferson believed that beyond the allotted
time of ones generation, one had almost a moral obligation to clear the ground for the next generation by
placing oneself underneath it. In a letter to James
Madison, he also said he believed that the Earth belongs
to the living generation and that laws should expire
with each new generation, which he approximated to be
about every 19 years. While that concept did not get
traction, the idea is that each generation should not be
beholden to the beliefs of the previous. I see that to be
somewhat true, while also emphasizing that much is to
be learned from older generations. Learning from each
other is definitely more productive than mocking each
other. It is that on which we should focus. Jefferson said
the Earth belongs to the living, not the dead. While we
are all living on it, we should strive for commonalties
and what may bind us, not the other way around.

Stock indexes notch modest losses


By Alex Veiga

DOW JONES INDUSTRIALS

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A slide in technology and consumer-focused companies helped


pull U.S. stock indexes modestly
lower Thursday, offsetting strong
energy sector gains.
A broad swath of retailers, from
department stores to fast-food
chains, also notched losses, while
most of the big gainers were oil
production and drilling companies.
They got a boost from a report
indicating fuel stockpiles fell precipitously last week. The price of
U. S. crude also jumped on the
report, and closed nearly 5 percent
higher.
U.S. bond yields also surged, as
traders reacted to the European
Central Banks decision to leave
its key interest rates unchanged
and hold off on extending a stimulus program.
Still, in the absence of any
major new economic data, the
stock indexes continued a recent
pattern of mostly sluggish trading.

Wells Fargo fined $185 million


for improper account openings
By Ken Sweet
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK California and federal regulators fined Wells Fargo a combined $185
million on Thursday, alleging the banks
employees illegally opened millions of
unauthorized accounts for their customers in
order to meet aggressive sales goals.
The San Francisco-based bank will pay
$100 million to the Consumer Financial
Protection Bureau, a federal agency created
five years ago, $35 million to the Office of
the Comptroller of the Currency and $50
million to the City and County of Los
Angeles. It will also pay restitution to
affected customers.
It is the largest fine the CFPB has levied
against a financial institution and the
largest fine in the history of the Los
Angeles City Attorneys office.
Roughly 5,300 employees at Wells Fargo
were fired in connection with this behavior,
according to the city attorneys office.
The CFPB said Wells Fargo sales staff
opened more than 2 million bank and credit

card accounts that may have not been


authorized by customers. Money in customers accounts was transferred to these
new accounts without authorization. Debit
cards were issued and activated, as well as
PINs created, without telling customers.
In some cases, Wells Fargo employees
even created fake email addresses to sign up
customers for online banking services.
Wells Fargo built an incentive-compensation program that made it possible for its
employees to pursue underhanded sales practices, and it appears that the bank did not
monitor the program carefully, said CFPB
Director Richard Cordray.
The behavior was widespread, the CFPB
and other regulators said, involving thousands of Wells Fargo employees.
Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer
called Wells Fargos behavior outrageous
and a major breach of trust.
Consumers must be able to trust their
banks, Feuer said.
Wells Fargos aggressive sales tactics
were first disclosed by The Los Angeles
Times in an investigation in 2013.

Credit card sensation: The


hottest new plastic is metal
By Ken Sweet
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK The demand has been so


overwhelming that the manufacturer ran out
of raw material in just a few days.
Enthusiasts extol its virtues all over the
internet. Millennials are clamoring for it.
Its not a new video game, or some fancy
food craze, or even Apples latest iPhone,
but a credit card.
Calling it plastic wouldnt do it justice. It
is a high-end, high-fee, high-reward card
made of a metallic alloy that gives it a satisfying heft and an impressive thunk when
you toss it onto the table to pick up the
check.
The Chase Sapphire Reserve Card has
become the hottest card on the market just
two weeks after being introduced, even
though it came out during the slow, end-of-

summer period, it carries a hefty $450 annual fee, and JPMorgan Chase spent nothing
on advertising it.
Im telling all my friends about it, said
Maddy Novich, 33, of New York, who
applied for the card, as did her husband.
Like so many crazes these days, this one
has been fueled by social media, word of
mouth and the internet. Frequent travelers
and those who try to game travel-loyalty
programs have been writing extensively
about the card on blogs and forums.
I have never seen such interest in a credit
card, and Ive been doing this for 15 years,
said Gary Leff, who runs the travel and
points blog View From the Wing .
Chase has approved tens of thousands of
applications for the card, said spokeswoman Lauren Francis. Most of the customers are millennials, who typically shun
credit cards and are not usually a target for
high-fee, ultra-premium plastic.

Back with a vengeance


Jeff opens at home looking to avenge last years loss to Monta Vista
By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Game of the Week

Will Maddox remembers his first loss as a


varsity head coach quite well.
The loss came quickly last season, his first
season at the helm of the Jefferson Grizzlies,
who fell on the short side of a 35-34 thriller at
Monta Vista-Cupertino in Week 2. After leading by two touchdowns early in the fourth quarter, the Grizzlies fell behind but engineered a
comeback drive and scored a touchdown to
close to within 1 in the games final seconds.
But a failed 2-point conversion run by quarterback Damari Cual-Davis proved the difference.
Now its time for Round 2, as Jefferson
hosts Monta Vista in Friday nights home
opener in Daly City. Kickoff is scheduled for
7 p.m. And the returning class of Jefferson
seniors remembers full well the disappointing outcome of a year ago.
They know about last year, Maddox said.
The senior class knows all about it and they
really want to avenge that loss.
Fitting to that theme, senior James Sanders
will get his first varsity start at quarterback.
Sanders also a starting defensive end is
slated as the backup this season, but first-string
QB Aaron Cruz will sit early due to disciplinary
reasons. Maddox said Cruz will be available to
play and will likely see time under center.
Maddoxs priority though is bouncing back
after yet another Week 2 loss, falling last week
at Santa Clara 45-28. According to Maddox,
the Grizzlies downfall was they came out lackadaisical, falling behind 17 points early to an
A-league team. The silver lining was
Jefferson maintained the 17-point differential
through the remainder of the game.
We spotted them 17 we lost by 17,
Maddox said. So we really played with the
guys.
It was a costly loss in more than just the
Grizzlies 1-1 record though, as they lost two
key players due to injury. Senior offensive
lineman/linebacker Luti Lagoo was lost for
the year after exiting in the third quarter with a
shoulder injury. Senior wide receiver/defensive

Pliskova upsets Serena in U.S. Open semis


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Serena Williams was upset


in the U.S. Open semifinals for the second
year in a row, beaten 6-2, 7-6 (5) by 10thseeded Karolina Pliskova of the Czech
Republic on Thursday night.
Williams, who clutched at her left leg
between points in the second set, doublefaulted to end it.
Afterward, her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou,
said Williams injured her left knee in the quarterfinals.

Terra Nova sweeps final tuneup before Bay Division opener


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

SAN FRANCISCO Things got real for a


moment for Terra Nova in Thursdays final
non-league volleyball tuneup at Mercy-San
Francisco.
Up two sets in the match and leading 7-2
in Game 3, the Tigers saw their lead slip
away ever so briefly as Jensen Espiritu went
on a six-point service run.
But then Terra Nova junior Krystal Hin
took the momentum back with fierce kill of
the left side. Hin continued crushing en
route to a match-high 12 kills to lead the
Tigers to a 25-19, 25-12, 25-14 sweep.
With Terra Nova (2-2 overall) returning to
the Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division
for the first time since 2014, Hin a thirdyear varsity starter has been to the PALs
upper league before and knows to expect a
completely different caliber of competition
than last season when the Tigers swept
through PAL Ocean Division play to post an
undefeated league record and bring home the
Ocean crown.
Theyve got some good hitters (in the
Bay), so well come at them with what
weve got, Hin said.
Hin will fit in with those good Bay hitters
though. She tends to run in stealth mode, as
she did Thursday, beginning the match quietly
and somewhat passively. But once she gets it
going, she can tattoo shots with the best of
them, hardly ever coming off the court as a
six-rotation player and proving just as effective as a hitter from the back row as the front.

TERRY BERNAL/DAILY JOURNAL

Terra Nova junior Krystal Hin fires on of her match-high 14 kills in Thursdays win at Mercy-SF.
Shes amazing, Terra Nova head coach
Kari Trainor said. She just does it all. She
passes, she reads, shes smart. Shes just
a smart, great leader.
Trainor is in her first year at the Terra
Nova helm. And she took some liberties
with Thursdays lineup, running predominantly a 6-2 set. This isnt how she plans to
debut in Bay Division play next Tuesday
when the Tigers travel to Sequoia, however,
as she relies on a standard 51 offense run by senior setter

returning seniors, along with outside hitter


Amanda Kaesler. And the two of them, along
with junior libero Arliz Herrera, were scrapping around early in Thursdays match to set
the tone for the victory.
I feel like thats how we get warmed up,
Herrera said. We get hyped up with great
plays and great saves.
It didnt take the Tigers long to seize control against Mercy (2-1). Freshman Shirley
Morrison produced a kill she totaled
seven match kills with a savvy flip to a
vacant sideline to give Terra Nova a 4-3 lead
that stood of for the remainder of the open-

ing set, as Hin came on strong towards the


end.
It was actually a spirited block that got
Hin on the board to improve the Tigers lead
to 9-5. She went on to add four kills in the
set. Then in Game 2, Hin fired four more
kills along with a pair of service aces as
Terra Nova never trailed in the set.
In Game 3, the Tigers were all smiles and
played relaxed perhaps a bit too relaxed in
the early going until Hin reclaimed the
intensity to seesaw the momentum back
towards Terra Nova after Mercy went up 10-8.
Then, Hin put her team back on top 11-10
by clipping the tape for a service ace. Harris
followed with a right-side kill one of her
five in the match in what would turn into
an 8-1 Tigers run.
Harris ran the offense as smoothly as she
has all season, according to Trainor, who
raved about the teams passing.
I saw a little more running and making
plays, which was awesome, Trainor said.
This was the best game today for passing
for us.
Most in the Terra Nova ranks seem to be
reserved to having their hands full in the
Bay Division. But Trainor said she feels the
Tigers belong there with the teams objective to earn the right to stay in the Aleague in 2017.
I would like to play hard and intense
always and not give up and beat the teams
we can beat, Trainor said. Id like to stay
in the top half (of the standings). That
would be nice. But well see.

The Aragon Dons dominated San Mateo
last week, 42-14. The Warriors were

one of seven teams in the PAL with a 2-0
record. The Dons offense has been as
good as advertised this season. Through two
games, Aragon is averaging 49.5 points per
contest. To say South City is struggling
mightily would not be hyperbole. Both of
the Warriors losses have come to PAL Lake

Aragon features on the ground.

Sophomore QB Joseph King is averaging
177 yards passing through the first two
games.

Willow Glen (1-1) at Terra Nova (0-2), 7 p.m.


The Willow Glen Rams slipped past San
Jose last week, 15-12. The Tigers tamed
Novato, 49-6, but were forced to forfeit the
victory. Willow Glen was just 3-7 last
week and finished fifth in the BVALs Mt.
Hamilton Division the BVALs most
competitive division. In two games, the

MACK

Cooper, have made the Raiders an intriguing team to watch this season.
Now they get a chance to back that talk up
starting with Sundays season opener in New
Orleans against Drew Brees and the Saints.
I believe its the mindset, Mack said.
We have the talent. I feel like the work we
put in is going to give us the confidence
when the season hits to go out and win
games consistently. Thats what were looking forward to doing.
Mack came out of Buffalo as the fifth overall draft pick in 2015 and made an immediate
impact as a stout run defender who applied
consistent pressure on the quarterback.
The only thing lacking as a rookie were
sacks, as he had just four.
That all changed a year ago when his more
refined pass-rushing moves helped lead to
15 sacks second-most in franchise history including a team-record five in one

passed for 178 yards and three TDs, completing 13 of 15 passes. Saini Saini paced
the ground attack with 167 yards and four
TDs.

Alvarez (2-0) at Burlingame (1-1), 7 p.m.


The Alvarez Eagles are coming off a 28-14
win over Alisal. The Panthers were surprised 43-34 by Half Moon Bay.
Burlingame blanked Alvarez 30-0 last year.
The Eagles went 4-7 in 2015, finishing
in fifth place in the Monterey Bay Athletic
Leagues Gabilan Division. Alvarez is
averaging more than 300 yards of offense
through its first two games 275 of which
come on the ground. RBs Logan Esparza,
Michael Ramirez and Frank Pinedo combine
to average 142 yards rushing per game.
Burlingame is averaging 340 yards rushing
through two games. Alec Meredith leads the
way with 250 yards on the ground.

Yerba Buena (0-1) at Carlmont (0-2), 7 p.m.


The Yerba Buena Aztec Warriors were
knocked off by Harker last week, 21-14.
The Scots were slammed by Woodside, 5028. Carlmont beat Yerba Buena 20-0 last
season. Yerba Buena, which plays in the
West Valley Division of the BVAL, was 6-4
overall last season, finishing fourth in the
division standings. The Aztec Warriors
racked up some serious yardage last week.
game at Denver in December.
Hes disruptive, Brees said. Every team
has to plan for him, and yet he still kind of
finds ways to be around the quarterback, be
around the ball.
Macks performance helped him get
named first-team All Pro as both a linebacker and a defensive end in a sign of his
versatility as well as talent. He now gets
mentioned alongside stars like J.J. Watt,
Von Miller and Aaron Donald when talk
turns to the top defender in the league.
While he might not be able to match last
years sack total, he should have more
opportunities this year after Oakland added
another talented edge rusher in former linebacker Bruce Irvin and upgraded the secondary with the signing of cornerback Sean
Smith.
With quarterbacks likely needing more
time to find open receivers against the
Raiders improved secondary and Irvins
presence making it harder to focus solely on
Mack, offenses are going to have a harder
time containing him.
I feel like its going to be one of those
things where youre going to have to even it

THE DAILY JOURNAL


They rushed for 192 yards and passed for
174 more. Four turnovers, however, cost
them. Shalom Filoialii is averaging 167
yards rushing for Yerba Buena. Carlmont
RB Demarii Blanks is turning into quite the
prolific receiver. He has caught only two
passes this season, but is averaging 78
yards per catch. As a team, Carlmont
rushed for 381 yards last week and scored all
four TDs on the ground.

Rancho Cotate-Rohnert Park (0-1)


at Sequoia (1-1), 7 p.m.
The Rancho Cotate Cougars lost in a
shootout to Analy-Sebastopol last week,
63-46. The Cherokees were KOd by
Hillsdale, 47-31. The Cougars finished
9-4 last season, advancing to the NCS
Division 3 semifinals. Rancho Cotate
QB Jake Simmons lit it up last week. The
junior completed 30 of 39 passes for 562
yards and six TDs. Three Cougar
receivers finished with more than 100 yards
receiving. Jaelen Ward had the biggest
night, catching 15 balls for 246 yards and a
score. AJ Vallejos caught five passes for
101 yards and two TDs, while Logan Reece
had four catches for 104 yards and a score.
Through two games, Sequoia is averaging nearly 500 yards of offense. QB Nick
DeMarco is providing a lot of that offense.
He is throwing for an average of 271 yards
and leads the team in rushing as well, with
93 yards per game.
up and play man up, one-on-one, Mack
said. One-on-one across the board or either
chip on both sides because hes a special
player. You really didnt get to see too much
of what he can do in Seattle. So just having
him going full mode over here is going to
benefit us as a defense in a tremendous way.
Irvin has a different idea on how teams
should approach the Raiders, saying they
should use three or four blockers on Mack.
That was a big reason why he signed with
the Raiders, knowing Macks presence
would help his production.
The biggest thing about him, when a guy
has had as much success as hes had in the
first two years of his career, some guys seem
to not take advice or seem to not work hard,
but he comes to work every day, Irvin said.
He takes advice from me. I take advice from
him. Ive said it before and Ill continue to
say it, I really think this was meant to be, to
be teamed up with him. Were going to continue to push each other each and every day
and were going to really make it happen
this year.

Menlo-Atherton (0-2) vs. Sacred Heart
Cathedral (1-1) at Kezar Stadium, 7 p.m.
The M-A Bears were bitten by Marin
Catholic last week, 31-25. The Irish were
doubled up by JustinSiena, 26-13. M-A is
the third PAL school to
play in Kezar Stadium
this season. Jefferson
and Menlo previously
played San Francisco
schools there. Despite
being winless thus far,
the Bears are averaging
Jordan Mims 353 yards of offense
against a pair of Nor Cal powers. Jordan
Mims may lead M-A with 199 yards rushing, but quarterback Aajon Johnson is
developing into a sturdy complement. Hes

Maddox touched on in the post-practice

We want to come out fast, Maddox said.
We want to take the will out of Monta
Vista.

Friday Sept. 9, 2016

Valley hasnt been 2-0 since going 13-0 and


winning the 2002 CCS Division IV title
over Burlingame. In two games, the
Wildcats are averaging 43 points per game
and allowing just 20. Kings Academy is
averaging 52 points on offense and just 10
on defense. Knights QB Michael
Johnson Jr. has thrown for 589 yards and
nine TDs in two games.

Serra (0-2) at Pittsburg (2-0), 7 p.m.


The Serra Padres were, predictably, beaten
by national power De La Salle-Concord last
week, 47-13. The Pirates pounded James
Logan-Union City, 63-6. Serra last started the season 0-2 in 2014. The Padres went
on to finish 7-4 overall and captured a share
of the WCAL regular-season championship.
The Padres defense has simply been overwhelmed the first two weeks. It gave up 63
in the opener against St. Marys-Stockton
before DLS hung 47 on it last week.
Pittsburg finished 10-3 last season and was
second in the Bay Valley Athletic League.
The Pirates hold the distinction of being
the last Northern California team to beat De
La Salle, way back in the 1991 NCS semifinals. Serra coach Patrick Walsh was a junior
on that Spartans squad.

Menlo School (2-0) at Harker (1-1), 7 p.m.

been a lot more run for Menlo this season.


Through two games, the Knights are churning out an average of 243 yards on the
ground. Barring anything unforeseen, senior RB Charlie Ferguson should go over the
500-yard mark on the season. He has rushed
466 yards on just 38 carries this season.
Football is the only sport at Harker that is
aligned with the North Coast Section.
The Eagles are about as balanced an offense
youll find this early in the season. They are
averaging 127 yards passing per game
and 128 rushing.

Mills (2-0) at Andrew Hill-SJ (0-1), 7 p.m.


The Mills Vikings were victorious over
Gunn-Palo Alto last week, 40-7. The
Falcons opened their season last week with
a 21-0 loss to Lynbrook. Mills last started the season 2-0 in 2014, when it won its
first four games of the season. It ended that
year with six straight losses. The
Vikings defense has given up a total of 25
points in two games so far this season.
Hill plays in the West Valley Division of
the Blossom Valley Athletic Leagues threetier set up. The West Valley is the equivalent
of the PALs Lake Division. The Falcons
went winless in 2015.

Sacred Heart Prep (0-2) vs. Palma (0-2) at


Monterey Peninsula College, 7:30 p.m.

The Menlo Knights knocked off MissionSF last week, 35-13. The Eagles were
clipped by Saratoga, 17-14. While
known for its run-and-shoot offense, its

The SHP Gators were gutted by Riordan last


week, 19-3. The Chieftains succumbed to
St. Francis, 8-7. Palma beat SHP 31-28

Monta Vista has undergone some changes


from a year ago. First-year head coach Adam
Herald took over for longtime coach Jeff
Mueller, who was at the helm of the
Matadors for 15 seasons, posting a 67-61-1
career record.
Under Herald, Monta Vista (1-1) has converted from a wing-T offense to the spread.
The Matadors have struggled to score points
through their first two games, falling opening week to Westmont 35-6, then bouncing
back last week against Evergreen Valley 1815.
Jefferson enjoyed a big Week 1 win 43-20
over Mission-SF at Kezar Stadium. It marked
a solid debut of Cruz under center. After missing much of his sophomore season with the
junior-varsity squad due to injury, Cruz found
his groove in a hurry, completing 19 of 24
passes for 235 yards with two touchdowns

and an interception. He also rushed nine


times for 75 yards.
He looked phenomenal, Maddox said.
We couldnt have asked a junior quarterback
to step into Kezar and do any better.
With the injury to Livingston, senior wide
receiver Roman Narag will look to fill his
shoes at wide out. Hes tabbed seven catches
for 71 yards this season and is still looking
for his first touchdown. Prior to
Livingstons injury, he had seven catches for
98 yards and a touchdown against Mission.
The Grizzlies look to feature a more
straightforward backfield attack this season.
Junior running back Daniel Benjamin broke
out for 157 yards on nine carries with two
touchdowns last week against Santa Clara. In
Week 1, junior Angelo Velez paced Jeff with
110 rushing yards on 11 carries and a touchdown.

combined for just six losses the entire season. SHP is struggling mightily on
offense so far, scoring a total of 15 points
in its first two games. Palma has swung
wildly in its first two games. In the opener,
the Chieftains put up 31 and gave up 52.
Last week, both units did an about-face
against one of the toughest teams in
Northern California.

El Camino (1-0) vs. Sonoma Valley (0-1) at


Arnold Field, 7:30 p.m.
The El Camino Colts avoided an upset last
week, topping Gunn 38-28. The Dragons
were limited to a safety in a 13-2 loss to
Tamalpais. Sonoma finished 2015 with a
3-7 record. Nathan Nacions 20-yard
touchdown run in the third quarter gave El
Camino the lead for good last week, 31-28.
CJ Bautista added an insurance score on a
10-yard run in the fourth quarter.

SATURDAY
San Mateo (1-1) at Los Altos (2-0), 1:30 p.m.
The San Mateo Bearcats were mauled by
Aragon last week, 42-14. The Eagles
escaped with a 28-20 victory over Soquel.
The Bearcats looked impressive in their
season-opening 41-28 win over South City,
but took a step back against Aragon. Los
Altos is more in the Bearcats weight class.
To say Los Altos is a ground team would
be an understatement. In two games, the
Eagles have rushed for 502 yards. Passing?
Just 3 for 6 for 15 yards.

NFL brief
Prosecutors charge ex-49er Miller
SAN FRANCISCO San Francisco prosecutors have charged former 49ers tight end
Bruce Miller with multiple counts of assault
and battery after police say he attacked a 70year-old man and his son while intoxicated.
The San Francisco District Attorneys
office said it filed seven charges against
Miller Thursday, including assault with a
deadly weapon.
Police say Miller tried to enter a hotel
room occupied by an elderly couple on
Monday. The couples son was staying in
the next room, and police say Miller
attacked him and his 70-year-old father after
the son told Miller he was at the wrong
room. Miller allegedly punched the father.

Landon Donovan comes out


of retirement, rejoins Galaxy
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CARSON Landon Donovan is


returning to the LA Galaxy, ending
a 21-month retirement to suit up
for his Major League Soccer team
for at least the rest of this season.
Donovan and the Galaxy
announced his
return Thursday
with a video

back.
I care so deeply about the
Galaxy organization, and I believe
I could help in a small way to aid
the team in its quest for a sixth
MLS championship, Donovan
wrote in a message on his
Facebook page.
The 34-year-old Donovan is
widely considered the most
accomplished player in American
soccer history and the most successful player in the history of the
MLS, which named its MVP award

That set up fourth-and-21 from the
Carolina 29 at the 2-minute warning
and Newton threw incomplete but got
a reprieve: Cornerback Chris Harris
Jr., whose interception led to
Denvers go-ahead score minutes earlier, was called for illegal use of the
hands, giving Carolina a first down.
Some of the hits on Newton
pushed the rules.
Safety Darian Stewarts helmet-tohelmet hit in the final minute was
negated because Newton, who was
slow getting up, was called for
intentional grounding on the play.
Newton also took an inadvertent hit
to the head from Miller on a sack by
DeMarcus Ware. The QB went to the
sideline and put a towel over his
head as trainers checked him out.

after him.
Donovan retired in December
2014 after leading the Galaxy to
the franchises fifth MLS Cup
title, the record sixth championship of Donovans MLS career.
He is the leagues career leader in
goals (144), assists (136), gamewinning goals (41) and playoff
goals (25), among numerous
superlatives.
Donovan wrote that he was persuaded to return after watching several key Galaxy players pick up
injuries in recent weeks. The
Galaxy have lost U.S. national
team star Gyasi Zardes for the rest
of the regular season, while Steven
Gerrard and Jelle Van Damme are
sidelined for shorter spells. Star
defender Nigel de Jong also moved
to Galatasaray in Turkey, and his
abrupt departure inadvertently
cleared a roster spot for Donovan.
I have remained in close contact with many of the staff and
players on the Galaxy, wrote
Donovan, who worked as a broadcaster for the team during his
retirement. They jokingly asked
if I was ready to make a return to
the field to help fill some of the
void left by the injuries and departures.
The Panthers took a 17-7 led into
the fourth quarter of the first Super
Bowl rematch to start a season since
1970 but Siemian hit running back
C.J. Anderson for a 25-yard touchdown on the next snap.
Newtons next pass was intercepted by Harris at the Carolina 23. Ten
plays later, Anderson bulled his way
in from the 1 to give Denver its first
lead at 21-14 with 9:26 remaining.
After Ganos 36-yard field goal
brought the Panthers to 21-20,
Carolina forced a three-and-out and
got the ball back at its 40 with 3:06
remaining.
Broncos linebacker Brandon
Marshall, a college teammate of
Colin Kaepernick, took to a knee
during the playing of the national
anthem. Kaepernick refused to stand
for the anthem during San
Franciscos preseason games,
explaining it was to protest racial
oppression and police brutality in
the United States.

rendered the thrust on both engines ineffective.
He takes responsibility for flying 150
people and if he does his job perfectly,
nobody gives a (expletive), Hanks said.
He could do his job flawlessly perfect
take off, easy landing, no turbulence
and the people are still going to hate the
flight because the peanuts were stale and
the airline lost their bags.
The Miracle on the Hudson was one of
those events that reminded the public just
how skilled and quietly courageous those
pilots are every time the wheels go up. The
human lives aboard are what distinguishes
him even from aviator characters Hanks
has played, like Apollo 13 astronaut Jim
Lovell.
Once Hanks asked Sully why he didnt
just fly for, say, FedEx, toting cargo and
not people. Sullenbergers response? Its a
bad schedule. Cargo pilots fly at night.
What many dont know, however, is that
the story didnt end for Sully and his copilot Jeff Skiles once all 155 on board were
safe on dry land. They were, 18 months
later, subjected to an investigation by the
National Transportation Safety Board.
Eastwoods film dramatizes this inquiry
and all the doubt that was placed on Sullys

ed here with a parade of a movie. He is beset
by demons and anxieties, and the almost
comically harsh scrutiny of an aviation
safety panel, which, relying on automated
flight simulations, believes Sullenberger
could have safely returned to LaGuardia or
made it over the New Jersey shoreline to
Teterboro.
Their snide, judgmental presence is there
throughout Sully, as they try to second
guess his decision-making. Its an exaggeration. The films climactic grilling of
Sullenberger at a public hearing was
referred to in news reports as gentle,
respectful and at times downright congenial.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

snap judgment to land in the Hudson, as


opposed to trying to make it back to one of
the surrounding airports. The film sets the
investigation in the immediate aftermath
of the emergency landing.
Im very glad that this more complete
version of the story is being told because
this absolutely is one that nobody
knows, said Sullenberger, who is now an
aviation safety consultant.
Aaron Eckhart, who plays co-pilot Jeff
Skiles, said that of all that was at stake
their jobs and their professional and commercial licenses they were most concerned about losing their reputations as
pilots. Depending on the findings of the
NTSB, that 208 seconds on Flight 1549
could eradicate the meaning of their
20,000 hours in the air and all of the lives
theyd delivered safely over the years.
Its something Eckhart and Hanks think
of often as people in the public eye.
Youre only one anecdote away from
being the guy who said that dumb thing,
Hanks said.
Eckhart laughed: Youre on a tightrope,
baby!
This is why neither of us drink! Hanks
added.
They exercised equal care in doing justice
to the real lives they were representing.
Its not our job to screw up the lives of
these guys, Hanks said, no stranger to
playing real people in films. For him, the
big sins are voluntarily altering events to
ratchet up tension and assigning an edito-

rial position on their motivations.


Youre searching for a kind of almost
journalistic authenticity that really
movies are the antitheses of. Its so easy to
lie in movies, Hanks said. Whenever I
see in a movie based on a true story, I go
ohhh thats dangerous. Based on a true
story? Therere a lot of things you can
base on a true story. Tarzan the ape man
can be based on a true story.
Not everyone agrees Sully is a completely accurate portrayal of the accident
investigation. A big part of the dramatic
tension in the latter half of the movie is
the prosecutorial tone of the National
Transportation Safety Boards investigation. That was a surprise to the real-life
investigators, who say thats just not how
they conduct themselves.
Hanks said Sully requested that the actual
names of the investigators be changed,
knowing that the film would editorialize
the drama in these scenes.
Also, he added: They are not trying to
convict either Sully or Skiles of doing
something wrong, but they are trying to
figure out exactly what went wrong.
But things seemed to have turned out OK
with the crews depiction.
I just saw Sully in the hallway and he
didnt punch me in the stomach or anything so thats a good sign, said Eckhart
with a chuckle.
And as Hanks puts it: He could be water
skiing while were here. But he wants people to know about the massive team that

made this happen.


The real wild card was Eastwood
famous and feared for his hyper efficient
shoots. Hanks wont name names, but did
go on a little fact finding mission among
his industry peers to find out whether the
stories were true.
One told him simply that theres just no
question that when he comes on set, he is
the man. He was also told another story
about a fellow actor who wanted to tweak a
bit of dialogue.
Clint looked at them and said Do you
want to get into this now? Hanks said in
his best Dirty Harry growl.
Its the kind of story that can stop even
pros like Eckhart and Hanks in their
tracks.
Eckharts reticent to tell any stories
about the boss, but he got his own dose
of Eastwood his first day on set.
I turn around, Clint is there and I open
my mouth to ask a question. He looked at
me, turned around and walked the other
way, Eckhart said laughing. I was like
got it. I got it.
Both agreed simply to get to set early
and just be prepared.
Hanks eventually got used to the silent
finger twirl that meant that cameras are
rolling and now everyone is waiting on
him. He even found it liberating.
Genuine behavior can be screwed up by
overthought, Hanks said. Clint has seen
every way that time can be wasted and he
does not want to do that.

But Eastwood and screenwriter Todd


Komarnicki working off of Sullenbergers
book Highest Duty: My Search for What
Really Matters, had to find drama somewhere. The entire flight lasted less than six
minutes. It was just 208 seconds from bird
strike to the frigid Hudson.
How do you make a film out of mere
moments, handled with preternatural calm?
Eastwood lingers in its aftermath, as Sully
remains holed in a Manhattan he has little
love for. The narrative is fractured, flashing
backward and forward, into the pilots past
and occasionally into his nightmares.
Hanks, white haired and subdued, finds
Sullenbergers essence not in the miraculous but in the mundane: A man just doing
his job, not so unlike his Captain
Phillips.
And though the film bears his name,
Sully is really a two-hander. With
Sullenberger throughout is his copilot Jeff

Skiles (a top-notch Aaron Eckhart), his


partner in flight and on the ground. They
huddle together in midnight runs and in testimony, leaning on each other through the
surreal media storm.
Eastwood moves slowly to the landing
but gives it its full due. Filmed on IMAX,
his big, clear images nevertheless remain
somber as does Eastwoods own quiet
score in the big, awaited moment.
Nowhere is much of a sense of New York or
the cathartic relief that lifted the city.
Instead, Sully remains, stubbornly, a
refraction of Sullenbergers interior, as filtered through Eastwoods elegiac lens. I
eyeballed it, is how the pilot explains his
intuitive response, built up over 42 years
of flying. Its not hard to feel Eastwoods
own identification with the man. He, too,
is an old hand who works quickly: workmanlike and instinctually, eyeballing it.
You can imagine Eastwood, too, up there on

the stand responding to what computers say


he should have done differently.
Lifes easier in the air, Skiles and
Sullenberger agree. Eastwood, of course,
does too. Only being aloft for him is to be
in the directors chair, far from other concerns. His focus in Sully is both its greatest attribute (this is, after all, a serious and
thoughtful film that sees a universally
known event through a fresh perspective)
and the reason for its disappointing emptiness.
In testimony, Sullenberger criticizes the
simulators for taking all the humanity of
the cockpit. Eastwood has put it back in.
But the story of Flight 1549 was bigger
than that.
Sully, a Warner Bros. release, is rated
PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association
of America for some peril and brief strong
language. Running time: 96 minutes. Two
and a half stars out of four.

Real-life investigators object


to portrayal in Sully movie
By Joan Lowy
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The world knows


Chesley Sully Sullenberger as the pilot
who managed to land an airliner full of people in the Hudson River without the loss of
a single life after the plane lost thrust in
both engines. But in the movie Sully,
about the Miracle on the Hudson ditching
of US Airways Flight 1549, the pilots
ordeal doesnt stop there.
Accident investigators are soon grilling
the airline captain and first officer Jeff
Skiles.
Could the plane have made it back to
LaGuardia Airport if Sullenberger, portrayed
by actor Tom Hanks, had turned it around?
Did the thrust in both engines quit after the
plane struck a flock of geese or was there
still some power in one? Was the pilots
performance affected by other factors?
When was his last alcoholic drink? Was he
having problems at home?
Only it didnt happen like that, say the
former government accident investigators
involved in the real-life investigation into
the 2009 accident. The public, as well as
pilots and others in the aviation industry
who see the film, may get the wrong
impression that investigators were trying
to blame the pilots, they said.
Were not the KGB. Were not the
Gestapo, said Robert Benzon, who led the
National Transportation Safety Boards
investigation. Were the guys with the
white hats on.
Its true that those questions were asked,
and many more, over the course of the 18month investigation, but thats just part of

REUTERS FILE PHOTO

The wreckage of the US Airways airplane that crashed in the Hudson River emerges out of the
river as an emergency crew attempt to hoist it with a crane in New York on Jan. 17, 2009.
NTSBs meticulous investigation process
that is intended to find all possible flaws
that contribute to a crash, investigators
said. That way the board can make safety
recommendations to the government,
industry, labor unions, aircraft makers and
others in an effort to prevent future accidents. Thirty-five safety recommendations
were ultimately issued as a result of the
Flight 1549 investigation.
The film, scheduled for release in theaters
on Friday, portrays investigators as more
like prosecutors looking for any excuse to
fault Sullenberger for the mishap. But the

real investigators recalled Sullenberger and


Skiles, portrayed by actor Aaron Eckhart, as
comfortable and cooperative. Pilot union
officials representing them were present
during all the interviews and at later public
forums.
These guys were already national
heroes, said Benzon, who is now retired.
We werent out to embarrass anybody at
all.
But thats not how it comes across in the
film, directed by Clint Eastwood.
Until I read the script, I didnt know the
investigative board was trying to paint the

picture that he (Sullenberger) had done the


wrong thing. They were kind of railroading
him into it was his fault, Eastwood said
in a publicity video for the Warner Bros.
film.
Hanks told the Associated Press in an
interview that a draft script included the
names of real-life NTSB officials, but
Sullenberger who is an adviser on the
film requested they be taken out.
He said, These are people who are not
prosecutors. They are doing a very important job, and if, for editorial purposes, we
want to make it more of a prosecutorial
process, it aint fair to them, said Hanks.
Thats an easy thing to change.
Malcolm Brenner, a human factors expert
who was among the investigators who
interviewed Sullenberger the day after the
ditching, said he recalls being extraordinarily impressed at the time with both pilots
and how well they worked together in the
midst of the crisis. He said hes also been
impressed since then with how Sullenberger
has used his fame to promote aviation safety.
I think there is a real integrity there,
said Brenner, now an aviation consultant. I
happen to be a big fan of the man.
Tom Haueter, who was the NTSBs head of
major accident investigations at the time
and is now a consultant, said he fears the
movie will discourage pilots and others
from fully cooperating with the board in the
future.
There is a very good chance, said
Haueter, that there is a segment of the population that will take this as proof of government incompetence and it will make
things worse.

Squash bake with a


Mediterranean flair
By Melissa dArabian
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

This weeks Italian squash bake is a true


work horse. Want an easy, make-ahead
weeknight side dish? This will do the
trick. Hosting both vegetarians and meat
eaters for dinner? Serve Italian squash
bake along with grilled chicken or fish on
the side for the carnivores, and youll be
all set.
Since the recipe is quite flexible, you
can easily make as much or as little as you
need. The colors of the vegetable slices
are pretty, juxtaposed against one another, making this a company-worthy recipe
with zero last-minute prep.
A quick note to parents: Once youve
sliced up the veggies, let your little ones
do the layering its a great way to
include them in the vegetable cookery of
dinnertime. And you almost cant mess
this up, aside from the aesthetics.
My daughter, who loves to help me
make this, even considers it a (lightenedup) version of lasagna. Shes actually not
too far off. This Mediterranean-style
squash bake is inspired by a tian, which is
a Provengal dish named after the earthenware baking vessel traditionally used to
make it. A tian typically is loaded with
veggies, and then is often topped with
lamb or salty pork.
My squash version gets its flavor from
calorie-free herbs, lemon juice and garlic
cloves instead, plus just enough satisfy-

ing fat from a light dusting of cheese added


in the final stages of baking. Since squash
only packs in about 10 calories in a halfcup serving (and surprisingly only about a
gram of sugar), a little cheese is the perfect touch of comfort. Bringing
Mediterranean flair to your weeknight
cooking routine might be just the thing
your autumn needs.

ITALIAN SQUASH BAKE


Start to finish: One hour
Servings: 4
1 medium-large zucchini, sliced
1 medium-large yellow crookneck
squash, sliced
2 large shallots, sliced
2 tomatoes, sliced (halve slices into

5-10 garlic cloves
2 teaspoons dried Italian herb seasoning
1 tablespoon olive oil
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella or parmesan
cheese, or mixed
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 375 F. Spray an 8-inch
earthenware or regular baking dish with
nonstick cooking spray. Season the vegetables with a little salt and pepper.
Layer the squash, tomato and shallot
slices shingle style in the dish, alternating vegetables. Dont hesitate to pack
the vegetables in fairly tightly; the slices
should not lay completely flat.

olive oil and squeeze on the lemon juice.
Cover with foil and bake for a half hour.
Remove the foil and continue baking for
an additional half hour, sprinkling the

total bake time of about an hour.) Serve

PLAN
Continued from page 1
have a path to follow.
The parks in San Mateo have really been
doing a wonderful job providing for a diversity of uses. People of all ages have been
able to find whatever they needed at San
Mateos parks and as the years have gone
by, times have changed, people have
changed, and what they want to do in the
park [has changed,] said Councilman Rick
Bonilla, according to a live video of the
meeting. Its a quality of life issue. Having
good quality parks and spaces for a multitude of different uses is one of the most
important things the city can do. It provides for the well-being of people.
The plan to take a comprehensive citywide look at San Mateos recreation facilities was born out of its Central Park Master
Plan update a process that drew significant participation from users ranging from
Little League players to tennis coaches.

Those varying interests, along with officials recognizing the demand for recreational resources, has only intensified
alongside San Mateos growing population.
It really made sense to say, lets look at
all of our facilities, then say lets see what
we can handle financially and what we need
to prioritize, Councilwoman Diane Papan
said.
A 12-member community advisory committee formed and member Ken Chin, who
also works for the city, said he was surprised
by the state of the citys facilities.
Growing up here in the community, Ive
taken many rec classes at almost all of the
facilities, Chin said, before commenting
on the advisory groups facility tour. The
buildings are 50 years old and you see the
Band-Aids that have been placed on over
and over again. The 50-year-old buildings just doesnt do our community justice.
The strategic plan gives us a really good
opportunity and guidance to improve the
facilities for future generations.
Chin and city officials praised San
Mateos Parks and Recreation as well as

Public Works departments for keeping the


facilities afloat during the recession, when
budget cuts were made.
In better financial standing, officials now
hope to reinvest in community priorities.
One of the top public interests is to
improve child care services; particularly as
most of the citys centers are not currently
licensed and demand is high as many families have two working parents.
Licensing of our day care facilities is definitely something we need to do along with
improving those facilities, Bonilla said.
So that those children can grow and learn
and develop and socialize and give them the
best start we can possibly give them.
Deputy Mayor David Lim said he would
like to keep youth sport participants and
leaders involved in the process while also
engaging the Hispanic community.
Geographical equity was an important
consideration for the council, particularly
as the Joinville and Martin Luther King Jr.
centers are in very poor condition, according to the city.
I love living in San Mateo because it is
so diverse and this process certainly took in

of geographic equity, I think thats really
something that is essential.
Another top community priority is to
offer better aquatic services. Many surveyed
showed an interest in creating a new multiuse lifestyle center with a pool and Bay
Meadows Park has been targeted as a potential site for a new facility.
Recreation Division Manager Paul
Council, who worked on the plan, noted
Bay Meadows proximity to employers and
health care centers could help in securing
partnerships to support the creation of a
new center.
Although more is needed before any actual improvements are realized, Lim closed
the hearing noting there are a variety of
interests in the city and the Recreation
Strategic Facilities Plan will serve as a
guide for future councils.
As we and future councils move forward, I
would encourage us to remember this plan is
not set in stone, he said. Its a road map.

Recession.
By comparison, the Asian-American
population grew around 3.4 percent on
average annually during the same period.
William H. Frey, a demographer with
the
Brookings
Institutions
Metropolitan Policy Program, the
slower growth is largely a factor of the
economy. A slower economy is influencing families to hold off on having
more children, and its discouraging
migration amid stronger border
enforcement, he said.
Kenneth M. Johnson, a senior
demographer at the University of New
Hampshires Carsey School of Public
Policy, said U. S. Hispanic women
between the ages of 20 to 24 have
seen a 36 percent decline in birth
rates.
Thats by far the largest decline of
any other group, Johnson said.
Despite slowing population growth,
Latinos still accounted for 54 percent
of the nations population growth
between 2000 and 2014, according to
the nonpartisan Pew Research Center.

You are holding the other agencies

not acceptable to Belmont at all.
San Carlos Councilman Bob
Grassilli suggested the joint powers
agreement that gives West Bay a

need a break.
Sanitary sewer rates for single-family residences in West Bays district

states, the study found.


Counties in the South continued to
account for the largest share of the
nations Hispanic population growth
43 percent between 2007 and 2014.
Among the other fastest-growing
counties for Latinos were Luzerne
County in Pennsylvania, Beadle
County in South Dakota, Duchesne
County in Utah and Burleigh County
in North Dakota.
Latinos are coming to Utah because
the government here is doing a lot to
create jobs, said Rogelio Franco of
Entre Latinos, a Salt Lake City, Utah
advocacy group that works to integrate
Hispanics into the state. Entre Latinos
was not affiliated with the study.
Franco said he thinks the declining
birth rate is a result of Latino millennials holding off on having children
while pursuing their education.
They are planning more, Franco
said. They are focusing on other
things.
The growth in North Dakotas
statewide Latino population nearly
doubled to 18,000, making it the state
with the highest Hispanic growth rate
over seven years. Though small in
numbers compared to states like
California and Texas, the rise in Latino
residents has put pressures on local
governments and nonprofits to accommodate the new residents.
For example, in 2014 Catholic nuns
from Mexico were sent to North
Dakota to help serve new Hispanic
parishioners in that state.

North Dakota had experienced an oil


boom until recently, attracting workers from around the country. It remains
one of the least diverse states in the
country.
Latino population growth has
become less concentrated in counties
with historically large Latino populations and whose Latino population
grew by at least 10,000, the studys
authors wrote.
Though the growth has slowed in the
last seven years, the Latino population in the South has exploded when
examined over 14 years.
From 2000 to 2014, Latino populations in Tennessee and South Carolina,
for example, nearly tripled.
North Carolina also saw its population spike 136 percent since 2000, the
report said.
Mauricio Castro, an organizer with
the North Carolina Congress of Latino
Organizations, said Latino immigrants
coming to the region tend to work in
the construction or service industry.
Still, between 2007 and 2014, nearly 40 counties experienced declines in
the percentage of Latinos. Most of
those counties were in Colorado, New
Mexico and Texas states with traditionally large Hispanic populations.
Frey said once the U.S. economy
starts picking up, he expects to see a
return of higher rates of immigration
and increase births.
This is not the end of Latino growth
in the United States by any means,
Frey said.

Bay sent to the SVCW board.


Redwood City Mayor John Seybert,
president of the SVCW board, questioned why West Bay voted to
approve the start of California
Environmental Quality Act review but
not the necessary design work that
would be an essential part of the
review.
Protecting ratepayers, Seybert said,
seems to be a new excuse to not start
the project.
West Bay has been setting aside
money for years related to the sewer
pipeline replacement project and that
spending its share now, about $2.5
million, will save all four agencies
big money down the road.
The three cities and West Bay own
the wastewater treatment facility in
Redwood Shores jointly.
The $2.5 million has already been
charged to ratepayers, Seybert said
Thursday.
Seybert questioned too whether
West Bay would vote yes on the
project next April, when it says the
work should begin.
Otte could not answer any of his fellow commissioners questions.
It makes no fiscal sense.
Construction costs will not go
down, Seybert said.
Redwood Shores resident Carol

Wong was the only member of the


public to address the board Thursday
night.
Its so obvious this is an urgent
matter for people, property and the
environment, Wong said.
Redwood Shores could be the most
impacted, she said, if the pipe breaks
again.
Most of the pipe sits in young Bay
mud and the agency wants to bury it in
a tunnel in solid rock at least 40 feet
underground. The agency spelled out
its need in March 2014 to replace
about 9 miles of sewer pipe called the
force main.
West Bay does not dispute the need
for the project, just when it should
start.
The pipe can easily sway or move
when a truck passes over it and during
wet weather, the pressure can increase
beyond the pipes capacity.
A big leak can bring big fines and
depending on where, big lawsuits
from residents.
And then theres the fear of an earthquake striking, which could be catastrophic, Seybert said previously.
So far, SVCW has had 64 leaks
across the entire force main and associated costs do not include potential
regulatory, civil and even criminal
penalties.

Russia: Israel, Palestinian leaders agree to meet for talks


By Nataliya Vasilyeva
THE ASSOCIATED PRES

MOSCOW Russias Foreign Ministry


announced on Thursday that the Israeli and
the Palestinian leaders have agreed in principle to meet in Moscow for talks in what
the Russians hope will relaunch the Mideast
peace process after a more than two-year
break.
But the wide gaps between Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu and
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas left it
uncertain if or when the meeting will take
place, and raised doubts about whether they
would make any progress if they do get
together.
In another twist, an Israeli TV station
reported that a document discovered by two
Israeli researchers indicated that Abbas had
worked for the Soviet intelligence agency,
the KGB, while living in Syria in the early
1980s. The professors said they were coming forward with the information to discredit
Moscow as an honest broker in peace talks.
After years of taking a back seat to the
U.S. in Mideast diplomacy, Russia has
increasingly sought to take a leadership role
in the region. It has developed close ties
with Iran and sent fighter jets to Syria to
back President Bashar Assad in his war
against rebel groups.

In Washington, a
spokesman said the U.S.
State Department is following the Russian
efforts closely and would
be supportive of any
kind of effort to bring the
parties together.
Thursdays announcement
in Moscow indiBenjamin
cates that Russia is pushNetanyahu
ing forward with its
attempt to become a peace broker after a setback earlier in the week. On Tuesday, Abbas
said that a meeting scheduled in Moscow this
week had been delayed at Israels request.
While bringing the men together would
represent an accomplishment for Moscow, a
diplomatic breakthrough seems unlikely.
Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu remain far apart on key
issues, and their differences have prevented
meaningful talks since Netanyahu took
office in 2009.
The last round of peace talks broke down
two and a half years ago, with no progress
reported during months of U.S.-brokered
negotiations.
In Moscow, Russian Foreign Ministry
spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Abbas
and Netanyahu had accepted an invitation to
meet in the Russian capital, but a date has

U.S. tries Afghanistan rescue


mission, hostages not found
By Lolita C. Baldor
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON U.S special operations


forces launched a rescue mission to retrieve
two men kidnapped by insurgents in
Afghanistan last month, but the hostages
were not there when the rescue team arrived,
U.S. defense officials said Thursday.
Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook said
the rescue mission was approved by Defense
Secretary Ash Carter and authorized by the
president. Cook said no U.S. personnel or
civilians were injured and added that he
would not provide any more details in order
to protect the safety of hostages and operational security.
According to defense officials, the mission was delayed one day because of questions about the intelligence and whether the
hostages, an American and an Australian
who worked at the American University of
Afghanistan, were there. Officials would not

provide the precise timing or location of the


rescue attempt because they said it could
jeopardize any possible future operations.
Because of questions about the intelligence including the degree of confidence
in the information that the men were at that
location administration officials did not
forward the mission request to President
Barack Obama until the next day, officials
said. Obama approved the mission, and
commandos went out that next night.
The officials said that when U.S. commandos arrived at the location, they killed seven
enemy fighters. They said that based on
interviews with people at the site, its still
not clear if the hostages were ever there.
The officials were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly, so spoke on condition of anonymity.
The two men were kidnapped from their
vehicle as they traveled from the university
to their residence in Kabul last month. The
rescue was attempted not long after their
kidnapping.

Mahmoud
Abbas

not been set yet. There


also was no word on
whether the two had settled on an agenda for the
meeting the key stumbling block in preparations.
The most important
thing is to pick the right
timing, Zakharova told
reporters.
Intensive
contacts on this are

ongoing.
Abbas and Netanyahu exchanged a brief
handshake last year at a global climate
change conference in Paris but have not held
a public working meeting since 2010.
Before returning to talks, the Palestinian
leader has demanded that Israel halt settlement construction on occupied lands claimed
by the Palestinians and carry out a prisoner
release that was promised during the last
round of talks.
Netanyahu has rejected the terms and said
the meeting should take place without conditions.
If the Palestinian Authority can say with
one voice that they are willing to meet without preconditions, then Prime Minister
Netanyahu will meet President Abbas, said
the Israeli leaders spokesman, David Keyes.
Late Wednesday, Israel TV broadcast an

Kerry heads to Geneva


for Syria talks with Russian FM
WASHINGTON Secretary of State John
Kerry is heading to Geneva for yet another
meeting with Russian Foreign Minister
Sergey Lavrov to try to forge a nationwide
truce in Syria, improve humanitarian aid
deliveries and restart peace talks.
The State Department said Kerry was
departing on Thursday to see Lavrov on
Friday. On Wednesday, the Russian foreign
ministry had announced the pair would

interview with two Israeli researchers who


said they had unearthed a document showing
that Abbas served as a KGB agent in Syria in
1983.
The program showed a document that listed
Abbas name, said he was born in Palestine
in 1935, and identified him by the codename
Krotov, which roughly translates as
mole. Abbas was born in what was Britishadministered Palestine that year. His hometown of Safed is now in northern Israel.
The station said the information came
from a trove of handwritten documents that
Vasily Mitrokhin, a former KGB archivist,
brought with him when he defected to the
U.K. in 1992.
Gideon Remez, one of the Hebrew
University researchers, said the full archive
was only opened to researchers by
Cambridge University last year. He said the
credibility was very high.
In the 1980s, Abbas was a top official in
the Palestine Liberation Organization. The
Soviet Union had close ties with both the
PLO and Syria at the time. The station said
Abbas may have been recruited while earning
his doctorate in the Soviet Union.
Russian President Vladimir Putin was a
senior KGB official around this time, and the
Israeli station said that Russias Mideast
envoy, Mikhail Bogdanov, was stationed in
Damascus at the same time.

Around the world


meet on Thursday and Friday, but the State
Department never confirmed two days of
talks.
Since Aug. 26, Kerry and Lavrov have
met three times to discuss Syria once in
Geneva and twice in Hangzhou, China. The
State Department says they have spoken
by phone four times in the past two days:
three times on Wednesday and once on
Thursday.
