Burlingame considers adopting builder fees

Money generated would fuel fund designed to address affordability crisis
By Austin Walsh

Burlingame officials are considering joining a growing movement of Peninsula cities looking
toward developers for money to
help ease the affordability crisis.
The Burlingame City Council

will discuss Tuesday, Jan. 3,

charging those building new living or work spaces an additional
fee feeding a fund paying for the
development of affordable housing.
Though no decision is slated to
be made during the upcoming
meeting, the proposal follows the

lead of cities such as San Mateo,

San Carlos, Redwood City and
other nearby communities which
have also adopted such fees.
Under the recommendation of a
consultant, Burlingame should
consider charging between $5 and
$15 per square foot of new hotel
space, between $2.50 and $7.50

per square foot of restaurant space

and between $5 and $10 per square
foot of medical or research and
development space.
builders should pay between $40
and $50 per square foot of new
townhomes and between $25 and
$50 per square foot of condomini-

ums or apartments, according to

the consultants recommendation.
Should the fees ultimately be
approved, they would flow into a
fund officials could draw from to
help close the gap between the
demand to live in Burlingame and

Last month, the Redwood City Council approved the purchase of Ilya and Emilia Kabakovs famous pirate ship

at one-fourth of the pieces appraised value due to a generous donation on behalf of the Kabakovs.

Local legislators are hopeful the

new year will bring an advantage
needed to address some of the
regions most troublesome issues
housing and transportation.
While Republicans shook up the
White House and retained control
of Congress in November,
California Democrats edged into a
supermajority in the state
Legislature. That is encouraging
to lawmakers who are reviving
several spending bills that previously failed.

Now, Assemblyman Kevin

Mullin, D-South San Francisco,
and state Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San
Mateo, are cautiously optimistic
the two-thirds majority will
enable them and their colleagues
to chip away at statewide problems felt acutely in the Bay Area.
Congested highways, crumbling

affordable housing are some of the
top concerns the San Mateo

Angelique Reardon and Omar Godinez

threw the ultimate New Years celebration
with the birth of their daughter Olivia.
It was the best way that we know to bring
in the new year, said Godinez.
At 12:41 a.m. New Years Day, Olivia
Evelyn Godinez was born, weighing in at 6
pounds, 14 ounces. She is 18.5 inches
long. Godinez is the first baby born at
Burlingames Mills-Peninsula Medical
Center in 2017.
The Hayward parents received several holiday-centric due dates for their first child,
ranging from Christmas Day to Jan. 6.
There was a lot of speculation on whether
she would be born on Christmas or closer to
New Years, said Reardon. I was like,
Whenever she feels like coming out is fine
with me.
Ultimately, doctors settled on Dec. 29,
but the newborn waited two extra days
before sending Reardon into labor early in
the morning on New Years Eve. Godinez
and Reardon arrived at the hospital at 11:45
a.m., where Reardon would spend the next
13 hours in labor.
The couple and their close family and
friends celebrated midnight by opening a
special San Francisco Giants-themed bottle
of Mumm sparkling wine that they had
saved for a special occasion.
They soon had cause for celebration of
another order as Reardon began contractions at 12:15 a.m. Three contractions and
10 minutes later, Olivia was born.
It happened fast, it happened really, really fast, said Godinez. She was in labor,
the ball dropped and then she started pushing.
It was surreal, said Reardon. She spent
18 hours total in labor, but was grateful to
secure Jan. 1 as her daughters birthday.
There are a lot of holidays people dont
celebrate, but you cant get around celebrating New Years, she said.

in Burlingame, making her the first baby born there this year.
p.m. Saturday, Dec. 24.
The couple is already thinking about how
they will coordinate New Years celebrations and her daughters birthday in future
Well probably have a party for the kids
during the day, and then have something for
the adults at night, said Reardon. Then
well do something special with her on New
Years Day.
The couple is now focused on preserving
the time they have to spend with each other.
Reardon, 29, quit her job in property management a few months into her pregnancy
to be able to spend time with their newborn.
The two are engaged, and also plan to set a
wedding date once they have adjusted to
their growing family. Godinez, 34, an estimator for American Asphalt in Hayward, has
his eyes set on creating moments the fami-

ly can share in the new year.

Im trying to spend as much time with
Angelique and Olivia as I can, he said. Im
trying to excel at work so they can spend as
much time together as possible. Its not
easy to do that in the Bay Area.

SpaceX said its investigation of the Sept. 1 explosion found that a tank failed within the larger, second-stage
liquid oxygen tank.

SpaceX finds source of rocket

explosion, planning new launch

LOS ANGELES SpaceX plans

to resume flights as early as next
week after finding the cause of an
explosion that destroyed a rocket
and satellite on a Florida launch
pad in September.
The Hawthorne-based company
is aiming for a Sunday, Jan. 8,
flight from Vandenberg Air Force
Base, the Los Angeles Times
reported Monday. The launch still
needs approval by the Federal
Aviation Administration.
The company said its investigation of the Sept. 1 explosion
found that a tank failed within
the larger, second-stage liquid

oxygen tank.
SpaceX plans to launch 10 satellites for Iridium Communications
Inc. on a Falcon 9 rocket. The
satellites will be used to provide
mobile communications on land,
sea and air.
Iridium says it in a tweet that it
is pleased with the SpaceXs
announcement and target launch
SpaceX had said it expected to
return to flight as soon as
November. But that anticipated
launch date slipped back to
December, and then January.
Clearly, theyre being extra
cautious, said Marco Caceres,
senior space analyst for the Teal

Group. SpaceX usually pushes

ahead a lot faster. So it seems like
theyre not rushing ahead at this
point, which is a good thing.

PASADENA The colorful and

lively Rose Parade marched safely
Monday under cloudy skies and the
watchful presence of more than
1,000 law enforcement officers.
No major problems were reported after security and other safety
measures were beefed up for the
128th annual parade as a response
to several terror attacks in Europe
in the past year.
There were no known threats
toward Pasadena, officials said,
but in addition to uniformed and
plainclothes officers, additional
security measures were taken.
Sturdy barricades were erected at
more than 50 intersections to prevent a terrorist attack like ones
that happened in Berlin and Nice,
France, last year when trucks barreled into crowds of people.

Storm moving
into Sierra; blowing
snow east and west of Reno

A large law enforcement presence was also seen at the nearby

Rose Bowl, where the University
of Southern California was to play
Penn State.
As fans tailgated hours before
the game, several truckloads of
FBI SWAT officers arrived at the
stadium. They were joined by Los
Angeles sheriffs deputies, the
Pasadena police, bomb-sniffing
dogs and Homeland Security officers.
The 5 1/2-mile parade featured
marching bands, horseback riders
and dozens of ornately decorated
flower-covered floats.
Highlights included a Hawaiithemed float with a volcano and
several waterfalls, another with
surfing dogs and one honoring the
49 people killed in the Pulse
nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

creating poor visibility for travelers east and west of Reno as a winter storm makes its way into the

Monday for the Sierras eastern

front north of Reno in effect until

Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and their daughter Sasha return from their vacation in Hawaii.

Under three weeks left: Obama

in closing stretch of presidency
By Josh Lederman

WASHINGTON His last vacation behind

him, President Barack Obama is entering the
closing stretch of his presidency, an
eleventh-hour push to tie up loose ends and
put finishing touches on his legacy before
handing the reins to President-elect Donald
Obama returned to Washington midday
Monday from Hawaii with less than three
weeks left. His final days will largely be consumed by a bid to protect his endangered
health care law, a major farewell speech and
the ongoing handover of power to Trump.
In an email to supporters on Monday,
Obama said his valedictory speech on Jan. 10
follows a tradition set in 1796 when the first
president, George Washington, spoke to the
American people for the last time in office.
The speech will take place at McCormick
Place, a giant convention center in Obamas
hometown of Chicago.
Im thinking about them as a chance to
say thank you for this amazing journey, to
celebrate the ways youve changed this country for the better these past eight years, and
to offer some thoughts on where we all go
from here, Obama said.
Obamas chief speechwriter, Cody Keenan,
traveled with Obama to Hawaii and spent
much of the trip working on the speech. The
Chicago trip will likely be Obamas last outside Washington as president and will be
include a family reunion for Obamas former campaign staffers.

Obama is also planning last-minute commutations and pardons, White House officials said, in line with his second-term effort
to cut sentences for inmates given unduly
harsh sentences for drug crimes. Though
prominent offenders like Edward Snowden
and Rod Blagojevich are also asking for
leniency, Obamas final acts of clemency are
expected to remain focused on drug offenders
whose plight Obama tried but failed to
address through criminal justice reform.
After taking office eight years ago, Obama
and his aides were effusive in their praise for
how Obamas predecessor, George W. Bush,
helped his team take over the massive federal
bureaucracy. Obama has vowed to pass on the

Congress ushers in new era of all-Republican rule

By Donna Cassata

Here are a few things to know about Congress


WASHINGTON Congress ushers in a

new era of all-Republican rule.
On Tuesday at noon, with plenty of pomp
and pageantry, members of the 115th
Congress will be sworn in, with an emboldened GOP intent on unraveling eight years
of President Barack Obamas Democratic
agenda and targeting massive legacy programs from Franklin D. Roosevelt and
Lyndon B. Johnson such as Social Security
and Medicare.
In the election, Republicans kept their
tight grip on the House and outmaneuvered
the Democrats for a slim majority in the
Senate. In less than three weeks, on the
West Front of the Capitol, Chief Justice
John Roberts will administer the presidential oath to Donald Trump, the GOPs newfound ally.
First up for Republicans is repeal and
delay of the health care law, expediting the
process for scrapping Obamas major overhaul but holding off on some changes for up
to four years.

Vice President Joe Biden, in one of his final official acts,
will administer the oath to 27 returning senators and
seven new ones. Republicans will have a 52-48
advantage in the Senate, which remains predominantly
a bastion of white men.
There will be 21 women, of whom 16 are Democrats
and five, Republicans; three African Americans, including
Californias new Democratic senator Kamala Harris, and
four Hispanics, including Nevadas new Democratic
senator Catherine Cortez Masto.
Across the Capitol, the House is expected to re-elect
Rep. Paul Ryan as Speaker, with all the campaign-season
recriminations involving the Wisconsin Republican and
Trump largely erased by GOP wins. Once sworn in, Ryan
will then administer the oath to the House members.
The GOP will hold a hefty 241-194 majority in the House,
including 52 freshmen 27 Republicans, including
Wyomings Liz Cheney, daughter of former Vice
President Dick Cheney, and 25 Democrats.


The Senate will exercise its advice and consent role and
consider nominations of 15 department secretaries
and six people tapped by Trump to lead agencies or
serve in roles with Cabinet-level status, such as the EPA
and U.N. ambassador.
Democrats wont make it easy.

Several in the party have been highly critical of several

of Trumps choices, from Rick Perry, who forgot during
the 2012 presidential campaign that the Energy
Department was the one he wanted to eliminate, to
Treasury pick Steve Mnuchin, the former Goldman
Sachs executive whom Democrats have dubbed the
foreclosure king for his stake in OneWest Bank that
profited from the foreclosure crisis.
Others nominees, such as retired Marine Corps Gen.
James Mattis for defense secretary, should easily win
confirmation. First, though, Congress must pass a law
allowing the former military man to serve in a civilian
There is a limit to what Democrats can do. Rules changes
in 2013 allow some nominees, including Cabinet picks,
to be confirmed with a simple majority, preventing
Democrats from demanding 60 votes to move forward.


Adding to the drama of the new Congress will be highprofile confirmation hearings for Trumps nominee for
the Supreme Court.
Justice Antonin Scalia died last February and
Republicans refused to consider Obamas nominee,
Merrick Garland, insisting that the next president should
fill the high court vacancy thats now lasted more than
10 months.
Trump released a list of potential choices during the
campaign that included Utah Sen. Mike Lee, who

clerked for Justice Samuel Alito. Since the election, the

president-elect also has met with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz,
who clerked for former Chief Justice William Rehnquist,
prompting talk about a possible nomination for the
onetime presidential rival.
Trump has said he wants to nominate a justice who
would help overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision
that legalized abortion. Cruz and Lee would fulfill that


The point man for Senate Democrats is Brooklyn-born
Chuck Schumer, who will be a chief antagonist to fellow
New Yorker Trump.
Schumer succeeds Nevadas Harry Reid, who retired
after five terms, and joins Congress top leaders
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., House Minority
Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Speaker Ryan in
what is certain to be tough negotiations next year on
spending and policies.

The first public hearing on the intelligence communitys
assessment that Russia interfered in the U.S. election is
Thursday in the Senate Armed Services Committee,
with James Clapper, the director of national intelligence,
set to testify. Expect individual panels to investigate,
but not a special, high-profile select committee.
McConnell has rejected that bipartisan call.

Out of power, state Democrats frustrated with national committee

By Kathleen Ronayne

CONCORD, N.H. Democrats around

the country are demanding change from a
national committee they say has focused
too heavily on the White House at the
expense of governorships, legislatures and
state party operations.
Its got to be helping us organize in our
states to be able to build that power at the
state legislative level, Michigan
Democratic Party Chair Brandon Dillon
said of the Democratic National
Committee, currently searching for a new

leader. Weve lost governorships and state

legislatures at a rate that is pretty astounding.
DNC members gather in February to elect
a new chairman, with five candidates running so far, each pledging to rebuild from
the ground up. Money from the DNC to
state parties has been inconsistent during
President Barack Obamas tenure and, in
most states, less than it was under former
chairman Howard Dean. Party chairs say
thats resulted in fewer staff members and
training programs, a change felt particularly in Republican-leaning states. State leaders also say Obamas grassroots group
Organizing for Action has functioned more

like competition than a partner.

Beginning in 2017, Republicans will
hold 33 governorships and fully control
legislatures in 25 states, as well as the
Congress and presidency. During Obamas
two terms in office, the party lost more
than 1,000 seats at the state and national
I love President Obama, but he and his
administration allowed for the deterioration, the terrible deterioration, of the state
parties over the last eight years, said Mark
Brewer, who led the Michigan Democratic
Party for 18 years.
Obama has announced plans, though, to

improve Democrats down-ballot fortunes

once he leaves office. He is launching an
initiative with former Attorney General
Eric Holder aimed at making Democratic
gains when states redraw legislative district lines following the 2020 census.
Democrats have blamed Republican gerrymandering for some of their losses in
Congress and state legislatures.
State officials say its been hard to plan
long term and recruit and train candidates in
off-election years due to inconsistent funding from the DNC. Under Dean, the national party installed and paid several staff
members in each state.

Syrian arrested in Germany

over alleged IS attack plan
BERLIN A Syrian man has been arrested in Germany on suspicion of seeking
180,000 euros ($190,000) from the Islamic
State group to buy vehicles that he intended
to use for one or several bomb attacks,
authorities said Monday.
The 38-year-old, who came to Germany in
late 2014 as an asylum-seeker, was arrested
on Saturday in Saarbruecken, close to the
French border. He is accused of collecting
money to be used by him or someone else to
carry out murder.
Prosecutors accuse him of contacting
someone in Syria who he knew was in a
position to obtain IS money for terror
financing last month via the Telegram
encrypted communication service. The suspect allegedly asked for 180,000 euros so

A day doesnt go by where I dont get a
handful of calls or emails or whenever Im
meeting with the public, when transportation or housing doesnt come up, Hill said.
But we need resources and revenue.
When voters nudged Democrats back to a
supermajority in Sacramento, Mullin and
Hill said theyre hopeful 2017 could bring
progress on problems manifesting across
the state.
Housing and transportation are central
challenges for San Mateo County and they
have now elevated to a statewide concern and
our leadership has made these two issues our
top priority, said Mullin, who also serves
as Assembly speaker pro tem.
But many of the proposed solutions
such as increasing the gas tax while adding a
surcharge for electric vehicles, as well as
doing away with tax breaks for owners of
vacation homes require a supermajority
vote that isnt guaranteed just because
Democrats are flush in both houses.
Its really a challenge because any time
youre talking about new money, its a twothirds vote and we do now have a supermajority of Democrats in both the Assembly
and Senate, but its still a difficult vote for
some of our more moderate Democrat colleagues, Mullin said, before expressing
some optimism. We are in a better position
than weve ever been having the two-thirds
majority in both houses. If youre looking at
a window to get this done, were looking at

Housing California
With the legislative season just beginning to ramp up, several Bay Area lawmakers have already proposed a range of bills
covering affordable housing needs.
Mullin co-authored several bills in a
package proposed by Assemblyman David
Chiu, D-San Francisco.
To meet pent-up demand while preparing
for future growth, the state needs an estimated 3.5 million new homes by 2025,
according to a press release from Chiu.
The centerpiece of the package includes
the Bring California Home Act, which
seeks to provide an ongoing funding
source for affordable housing by eliminating tax breaks on vacation homes.
Estimated to generate $300 million a year,
the proceeds from charging those who can
afford second homes would be allocated
toward the states Low Income Housing Tax
Anything which eliminates a tax break
is going to be controversial, so this will
be fought vigorously. But legislators in
the Bay Area have a responsibility to put
some policy in place to encourage the
development of affordable housing,
Mullin said.
Hill and Mullin noted earlier attempts to
create new funding sources as a way to
replace Gov. Jerry Browns dissolution of
redevelopment agencies have stalled. Both
noted the two-thirds majority, which
Democrats lost in 2014, is no guarantee.
Other efforts in the pipeline this year
include legislation by newly elected state
Sen. Scott Weiner, D-San Francisco, who
also represents the northern portion of San
Mateo County.


Around the world

that he could buy and repaint vehicles that
he intended to fit out with explosives before
driving them into crowds.
The case against him was bolstered by an
informant who went to Germanys Federal
Criminal Police Office, chats on the suspects smartphone and his own statements,
insofar as they can be followed, prosecutors said in a statement.
The Syrian is alleged to have told the financier that each vehicle would cost 22,500
euros, and that 400 to 500 kilograms (882
to 1,100 pounds) of explosives would be
placed in each car, they added.
Police said in a separate statement that the
man had sought IS financing for an as yet
substantiated attack scenario with the help
of prepared vehicles in Germany, France,
Belgium and the Netherlands.
Weiner is proposing to resurrect a version of Browns by-right proposal, for
which the governor previously offered
$400 million as an incentive. The law
would fast track certain housing developments that meet local zoning and include
an affordability component. Browns proposal drew concerns and Mullin said he
would have a hard time approving anything
that undermines local control over land
Assemblywoman Toni Atkins, D-San
Diego, last month revived an earlier proposal to create a $75 fee for recording certain real estate transactions another bill
requiring the majority threshold approval
that stagnated last session. The funds
would go toward affordable housing needs.

Transportation cash crunch

Lawmakers in both the Senate and the
Assembly have also resubmitted a multibillion-dollar proposal to overhaul how
the state funds transportation infrastructure
which hit a crisis since a significant
drop in gas tax revenue. Senate and
Assembly bills 1 closely mirror a special
legislative session proposal to allocate
$60 billion over the next 10 years to fund
improvements to state as well as local
roads, and public transit projects.
The bill proposes a 12-cent gas tax
increase and 20-cent diesel tax increase,
introducing an annual $165 surcharge for
electric vehicles and a $38 increase in
vehicle registration fees. The proposal
seeks to address a drastic fall in the states
gas tax revenue, prompted in part by lower
oil prices as well as a rise in electric cars
and vehicle fuel efficiency.
The financial gap prompted the state to
cut almost $754 million in transportation
infrastructure funding while predicting a
$135 billion shortfall over the next 10
years, according to the California
Transportation Commission.
I think its becoming increasingly clear
across the political spectrum that our transportation infrastructure is failing and it
needs investment. Traditionally, transportation policy has been a bipartisan
issue. We want to reach out across the
aisle and try to get support from our
Republican colleagues, Mullin said. We
are underinvested and we need to deal with
this in a big way.
But he and Hill acknowledged moderate
Democrats or those in districts that may
not be facing extreme highway congestion
and poor road conditions like the Bay Area
may have a hard time approving new
statewide taxes or fees. Furthermore, for
many Republicans, approving such
increases is traditionally considered political suicide, Hill said.
Hill and Mullin agreed the governor and
majority leaders must prioritize these
issues and encourage lawmakers to approve
revenue streams needed to address the
byproducts of an improved economy.
Theres a real reticence to vote for any
new fees or taxes, but thats where its
going to come down to our leadership
applying pressure. And Im hoping that
policy will trump the politics on this one,
Mullin said. It will also really require the
investment and engagement of Gov. Brown
on both transportation and housing. If hes
not there supporting and putting a deal
together, were going to have a very tough

IS claims responsibility for

terrorist attack in Turkey
By Lori Hinnant and Dusan Stojanovic

ISTANBUL The Islamic State group on

Monday made an unusual claim of responsibility for a major terrorist attack in Turkey,
saying a soldier of the caliphate carried
out the mass shooting at an Istanbul nightclub that killed 39 people as they welcomed
the new year.
The group said Christian revelers were targeted in response to Turkish military operations against IS in northern Syria, but most
of the dead were foreign tourists from
Muslim countries.
The claim came after a recent IS propaganda video urged attacks on Turkey, which is
home to an air base used in the U.S.-led
effort against the group in Syria and Iraq.
Turkish authorities never confirmed the
authenticity of the Dec. 22 video that purported to show Turkish soldiers who were
burned alive, but access to social media was
temporarily restricted in what appeared to
be an effort to curb circulation of the
The nightclub assailant, armed with a
long-barreled weapon, killed a policeman
and a civilian early Sunday outside the Reina
club before entering and firing at some of
the estimated 600 people inside. The establishment is frequented by famous locals,
including singers, actors and athletes.
Authorities obtained the fingerprints and
a basic description of the gunman and are
close to identifying him, Deputy Prime
Minister Numan Kurtulmus said Monday
after a weekly cabinet meeting. He confirmed that eight people have been detained
in connection with the attack.
The Islamic State group boasts of having
cells in Turkey, regularly issues propaganda
in Turkish and is believed to have hundreds
of Turks in its ranks. But until now, the
main act of aggression it had claimed in
Turkey was the March 2016 killing of a
Syrian journalist and an attack on riot
police in the province of Diyarbakir, which
Kurdish militants also claimed.
Other attacks in Turkey have been linked
to IS, but without specific claims of responsibility.
For some analysts, the claim signaled a
shift in IS strategy in Turkey, a predominantly Muslim nation and NATO member.
Its a new phase, security analyst
Michael Horowitz said. What we saw
before was an undeclared war, and now were
entering an open war.
The IS claim said only that the attacker
struck to let infidel Turkey know that the
blood of Muslims that is being shed by its
airstrikes and artillery shelling will turn
into fire on its territories.
Early Turkish media reports suggested the
nightclub gunman was probably from either

Uzbekistan or Kyrgyzstan and may have

been part of the same cell that staged a June
attack on Istanbul Ataturk Airport that
killed 45 people.
By attacking as the nation was celebrating the new year, the group indicated that it
intends to continue being a scourge
against Turkey in 2017, Kurtulmus said.
Initially, IS activity in Turkey appeared
designed to stoke tensions with the countrys ethnic Kurds and reflected events in
Syria. The first dramatic attack came July
2015, when a suicide bomber hit a rally of
activists in the border town of Suruc, at a
time when Kurdish fighters in Syria where
under siege just across the border in Kobane.
The worst IS-linked attack to rock Turkey
came just months after, in October 2015,
when twin suicide bombings killed 102
people at a peace rally in the capital,
In 2016, IS was blamed by analysts and
Turkish authorities for a wider range of
attacks, including the airport assault and
two other deadly bombings against tourists
in Istanbul. The group was also suspected of
directing an attack by a suicide bomber
possibly as young as 12 that killed more
than 50 people at an outdoor wedding in the
city of Gaziantep.
Turkey launched an offensive to northern
Syria in August in a bid to clear a strategic
border area of IS militants and contain the
gains of Kurdish fighters. In October,
Turkish-backed Syrian forces took the symbolically important town of Dabiq, which is
central to IS propaganda. Turkish jets regularly bomb IS in the then town of Al-Bab,
and Ankara wants to play a role in dislodging IS from its bastion in Raqqa.
Islamic State is sending a strong message to the Turkish government that it will
pay in blood for the offensive in northern
Syria, Anthony Skinner, an analyst with
the Verisk Maplecroft security firm, wrote in
an email to the Associated Press.
Many analysts also see the latest attack
on Turkey as a sign of growing desperation
within IS.
The group has been threatened in al-Bab,
Raqqa and Mosul in Iraq and needs to
reassert itself, said Horowitz, director at
the intelligence analysis firm Prime Source.
The aggression on Turkey, he added, is in
line with the groups practice of equating
mass-casualty terrorism attacks with heavy
bombings and airstrikes on IS-held territories.
In its claim, IS said the nightclub attack
was aimed at Christians celebrating a pagan
holiday, suggesting a symbolic choice of
target that can be justified to radical Sunni
Muslim supporters as punishment of sinners. But in reality, many of the victims
hailed from majority-Muslim nations in the
Middle East.

Tigers tear it up at Arizona tourney

By Terry Bernal

No Luca Deza? No problem.

The Notre Dame-Belmont girls soccer
team went into last weeks Arizona Soccer
Showcase missing its best player, Luca
Deza, who was on family holiday in
Barcelona. Facing some serious competition at the 16-team tournament at the Reach
11 Sports Complex in Phoenix, Arizona
was not enough to stop the storming Lady
Tigers though.

Through 10 games
this season the Tigers
(9-0-1) are still unbeaten, most recently earning
Showcase tournament
title by posting a 4-0-1
record through four days
of play, culminating in a
Ava Cholokian 2-1
Marana-Tucson in last
Saturdays championship game.
Going into the tournament we were

going in with mixed emotions, Notre

Dame-Belmont head coach Paul McCallion
said. We were trying to use it as a bonding
trip. We have a lot of younger players. And
we just kept getting stronger and stronger
as the tournament went on.
In the absence of NDBs star senior Deza,
sophomore forward Ava Cholokian stepped
up to score seven goals in the tourney. She
was one of three Tigers to earn all-tournament honors, along with senior defender
Monet Mendenhall and senior goalkeeper
Chloe Stogner.

While there was no tournament Most

Valuable Player award handed out,
McCallion said his vote would have certainly gone to Cholokian.
She was probably the player of the tournament for me, McCallion said. She kind
of took over where [Deza] left off.
After opening the tourney with a 1-1 tie
last Wednesday against Mountain View (34-1), the Tigers faced an uphill battle to
qualify for the playoff rounds. Cholokian

the lines of saying Chip Kelly will be

both he and the team were being savaged

seemed genuinely contrite, at least in my
opinion, and seemed sincere in his want
to get the team turned around.

The AFC playoffs could open with a pair of unknowns going head to head in Texans QB Brock Osweiler and Raiders QB Connor Cook.

Raiders, Texans not first teams to

DENVER Connor Cook is an untested

rookie. Brock Osweiler may have a feeling
hes been here before.
The Raiders and Texans square off
Saturday in a playoff game that might be

their QBs, and neither heads into the week

to be taking snaps.
Cook entered for Oakland in Sundays 246 loss against Denver after second-stringer
Matt McGloin left with a shoulder injury. If
McGloin, who was starting for the already
injured Derek Carr, cant go next week,
Cook would become the first quarterback in
the Super Bowl era to make his first NFL
start in a playoff game.

start, a development that seemed improbable a short year ago when he led the

Raiders sign quarterback QBS

Gilbert to practice squad

Quarterback Garrett Gilbert was

signed to the Raiderspractice squad
in the wake of injuries to Derek Carr
and Matt McGloin.

A 1-15 record earns Browns

top pick in Aprils NFL draft
NEW YORK A 1-15 record
earned the Cleveland Browns the
top pick in Aprils NFL draft.
Since returning to the league as
an expansion franchise in 1999,
the Browns twice have used the
No. 1 overall selection. In their
first season, they chose Kentucky
quarterback Tim Couch. The next
year, they got Penn State defensive lineman Courtney Brown.

ALAMEDA The Oakland

Raiders have signed quarterback
Garrett Gilbert to the practice squad
ahead of their first playoff game in
14 years.
Agent Leigh Steinberg announced
the move on his Twitter account
Monday. Gilbert spent time on the
Raiders practice squad last season and
was cut by the team in the offseason.
The Raiders were seeking a quarterback familiar with their offense
with starter Derek Carr sidelined
with a broken leg and backup Matt
McGloins status in question with
an injured left shoulder. That leaves
rookie Connor Cook as the only
healthy quarterback under contract.
Oakland (12-4) opens the postseason Saturday at AFC South champion Houston (9-7).

Well talk about that tomorrow
and the next day, coach Bill
OBrien said after Sundays 24-17
loss to the Titans.
By those standards, the
Dolphins seem stable, even
though Matt Moore is also set to
make his first playoff start when
Miami travels to Pittsburgh for
Sundays game. Moore took over
for the injured Ryan Tannehill in
Week 14. He is 2-1 as a starter this
year, including Sundays 35-14
loss to New England.
So, while it looks like this seasons playoffs will go down as
some of the strangest ever in the
quarterbacking department, its
hardly the first time.

Kaepernick replaces Smith

Lets start with a success story.
In 2012, 49ers quarterback Alex
Smith went down in midseason
with a concussion, to be replaced
by a not-yet-famous second-year
Kaepernick. The league hadnt seen
a quarterback quite like Kaepernick
to that point and it showed. He led
the Niners to a 5-2 record down the
stretch and into the playoffs on a
roll. He ran for 181 yards in his
playoff debut and took San
Francisco all the way to the Super
Bowl, where he joined Joe

Baltimore, and

s i n c e .
Kaepernick has
struggled ever
since and Smith
(healthy) member
won the AFC
West this year.

Lindley for Stanton for Palmer

Ryan Lindley spent a good portion
of the 2014 season on San Diegos
practice squad. The Cardinals, who
had originally drafted Lindley in
2012, picked him back up after their
top two quarterbacks, Carson Palmer
and Drew Stanton, each went down.
That left Lindley at the controls for a
playoff game against Carolina. It
didnt go well. Lindley threw two
interceptions in a 27-16 loss. The
Panthers allowed 78 yards, the fewest
given up in a playoff game. Arizona
coach Bruce Arians on his QBs play:
I thought he did great up until the
first interception.

Speaking of Palmer
Though Jon Kitna doesnt get
credit for a start in the 2005 play-

offs, he played virtually the entire

game for Cincinnati. Steelers nose
tackle Kimo von Oelhoffen rolled
into Palmers knee on his first
pass of the playoffs and knocked
him from the game. Kitna took
over and threw for 197 yards and
two interceptions and the Bengals
lost 31-17.

And speaking of Houston

T.J. Yates became the Texans
starter in 2011 after both Matt
Schaub and Matt Leinart went
down. Yates actually led Houston
to its first playoff victory, then its
first playoff loss the next week.
Maybe most significant about that
season and those changes is that

Osweiler wasnt particularly the
problem, coach Gary Kubiak went
with his gut and inserted Manning

questions, but did anyone expect anything
less? Besides, many of the questions he twostepped around have nothing to do with the
team going forward. For instance, he was
asked if he regretted ring Harbaugh. At this
point, who cares? Yes, he regrets it. Hes not
going to admit it.
There was apparently a blatant lack of
communication between the GM and the head
coach. York reiterated over and over again that
the new GM-coach tandem would have to work
closely with one another. It seems there was
very little rapport between Baalke and Kelly,
as reports came out Monday saying Baalke
didnt even know some of the assistant coaches names, and he signed a player without
even telling Kelly. York referenced the fact
that Baalke was a defense-rst football guy
and Kelly more offensive minded. It became
clear those two philosophies never found a
common ground and even York could see that.
Developing a winning culture. This
may be Yorks fatal aw and the reason he
may never get the 49ers right. He kept using
the phrase rebuilding a winning culture and
variations of that theme. The main culture
the 49ers have had under the York ownership
is a losing one, save for the four years with
Harbaugh. There is no rebuilding of a winning culture if youve never had one.
The 49ers used to have a championship culture when owned by Eddie DeBartolo Jr. and
therein lies the rub for York. The general consensus among many who follow the team
closely is York wants to do this on his own,
his own way. He doesnt want to lean on the
teams and the players of the past because he
wants to build his own name in the NFL world
and not always be known as Eddie Ds nephew.
So with everyone clamoring about bringing in Steve Young as a GM or building a
committee with the likes of Mike Holmgren
and Mike Shanahan, York would rather base
his decisions on the contacts that he himself
has created through the years.

He made it abundantly clear he is not

going anywhere. When asked if he should
step aside because of his perceived ineptitude, York said, I own this football team.
You dont dismiss owners.
That was about the most forceful thing he
said during the entirety of his press conference.
There is no set order of who gets hired rst.
This, by itself, could be the biggest downfall
and continued destruction of the 49ers. If York
does anything but hire a general manager rst,
who then has a big say in who the coach is,
this team is not going anywhere.
Nowhere, in any sport, does hiring a
coach before a GM ever result in success. A
coach having more power than a GM never
works and teams end up spinning their
wheels until they go the logical route of
GM rst, coach second.
Yet York was non-committal on this
point. He did say the team needed a clean
slate, but also said he would hire the best
candidate for either position when they
believed the opportunity was there.
This is the one development on which
49ers fans need to keep a close eye.
The bottom line is, while I believe Kelly got
the short end of the stick no coach could
have won more than a few more games with
the talentless roster this team had, which was
further decimated by injuries if youre moving out the GM, the coach almost always has
to go. As is the case for most every team in
any sport, a GM always wants to bring in his
own guy. No GM worth his salt would want
his star hitched to a guy he didnt hire.
Firing Baalke was denitely the right move,
but now it leaves one more pressing question:
Do you trust York to hire the right guy to take
the team back to respectability? Lets face it: It
takes a tremendous amount of luck to nd the
right guy and until a team does, its going to
wander around in the wilderness of losing. Will
the next guy be the answer for 49ers?
Only time will tell.

Owner York says Niners

in need of culture change
By Josh Dubow

SANTA CLARA Two years after asking

to be held accountable if his San Francisco
49ers fall short of winning the Super Bowl,
team CEO Jed York was back on stage having fired two more coaches, a general manager, and seen his team post a 7-25 record.
York apologized Monday for a 2-14 record
this season that he called embarrassing, and
repeatedly said the organization needed a
clean slate in order to re-establish a
championship culture.
But one thing that wont change after the
firing of coach Chip Kelly and general manager Trent Baalke on Sunday: York will be
the person leading the search for new leadership team after getting rid of Jim Harbaugh
in 2014 and then firing Jim Tomsula and
Kelly after one-year runs as coaches.
I own this football team, York said. You
dont dismiss owners. Im sorry that thats the
facts and thats the case, but thats the facts.

Krzyzewski takes YORK

leave from Duke

Continued from page 11


DURHAM, N.C. Hall of Fame Duke coach Mike

Krzyzewski is stepping away from the team to have lower
back surgery.
The school announced Monday that the procedure is scheduled for Friday, with an anticipated recovery time of four weeks.
Krzyzewski will coach Wednesday nights game against
Georgia Tech before handing off to associate head coach Jeff
Capel for Saturdays home game against
Boston College.
Krzyzewski, 69, will have a fragment
of a herniated disk removed at Duke
University Hospital. The school says
Krzyzewski tried several treatment
options during the past month before
deciding on surgery.
Krzyzewski said in a statement that he
consulted with the universitys medical
team and together, we have determined
that surgery is the best course of action at
this time. He says the Blue Devils will be in the capable
hands of Capel and assistants Nate James and Jon Scheyer.
As soon as the doctors clear me to do so, I look forward
to returning and giving our team 100 (percent) of my energy and attention, which is certainly something that they
deserve, he said.
The winningest mens coach in Division I history had
four surgeries during the offseason to replace his left knee,
repair his left ankle and fix a hernia. He squeezed those procedures into a busy summer in which he also led the U.S.
Olympic team to the gold medal in Rio de Janeiro.

years coaching at Virginia Commonwealth and Oklahoma

York said he had hoped that Baalkes
defensive background combined with
Kellys offensive experience would
help build a cohesive roster that could
compete in the NFC West. But the communication and collaboration wasnt
there, leading to the poor record.
The marriage didnt work, he said.
I should have probably seen it. Its
easy to play revisionist history, but
we are where we are. Thats why were
cleaning the slate and were re-establishing that culture.
San Francisco (2-14) matched the
worst record in franchise history, lost
13 straight games between wins in
Week 1 and the second-to-last game
against the lowly Los Angeles Rams,
and set records for most points, yards
and yards rushing allowed in team history.
That season prompted the latest
change. The Niners became the first
team in nearly four decades to follow
coaches in successive seasons after

only one-year tenures.

The only other time that happened
since the 1970 merger came when San
Francisco fired Monte Clark after the
1976 season and Ken Meyer the following year. The Niners then fired Pete
McCulley midway through the 1978
season and interim coach Fred
OConnor after the year before hiring
Bill Walsh to start a dynasty.
York will now need to entice potential general managers and coaches to
come aboard despite the lack of
patience and stability evident the past
few seasons.
Were going to have the opportunity with a lot of draft picks, were going
to have the opportunity with a lot of
salary cap room, he said. There are
some pieces here. I dont think there
are enough pieces here, but there are
some pieces we can build with. But it
has to be a partnership, its got to be a
collaboration between me, the head
coach and the general manager so we
can get this thing right.

streak ended in heartbreaking fashion.

Saquon Barkley rushed for 194 yards
and two TDs for the Nittany Lions (122), who followed up their 21-point

the teams obliterated the combined

quarter, surpassing Oregons 45-38 victory over Wisconsin in the 2012 game.
The Nittany Lions offensive stars
put together a highlight reel for the
ages during a 28-point third quarter.
After trailing 27-21 at the break, Penn
State scored three touchdowns on its
first three snaps of the second half: a

Godwin and a 3-yard TD run by

history for career 3-pointers (1,722),

Defending the 3-point line was a top
priority for Denver.
You have three guys in Curry,
Thompson and Durant that can all go off
for 40, 50 or 60, said coach Michael
Malone, a former Warriors assistant.
Durants 763 points in 33 games
against the Nuggets is his highest total
versus any opponent.
Both teams put on an offensive show
during a fantastic first half in which
they were shooting at least 62.5 percent

until midway through the second quarter.

A 7-3 Warriors burst from 4:54 gave
Golden State a 60-55 lead and was punctuated by Greens one-handed slam at the
3:42 mark that sent the fans into a frenzy.
Green also made a pretty pass to
Durant for a dunk, then Durant swished a
3-pointer at the halftime buzzer with a
defender in his face for a 68-64 lead. The
Warriors hit 8 of 14 first-half 3s.
The Nuggets last played at Oracle
Arena exactly a year ago on Jan. 2,
2016, losing 111-108 in overtime.

The takeaway
Penn State: The Nittany Lions
magical season culminated in an
extraordinary heartbreaker, but this
collapse wont hurt their prospects for
2017 and beyond. Penn State is firmly
back on the national stage, and a wealth
of talent will return to defend the Big
Ten title.
USC: The defense had been remarkable since USCs 1-3 start to the season, but it couldnt stop Penn States
big-play stars. Darnold made sure it didnt matter, and hell be back next year
as an immediate Heisman Trophy candidate looking to add more achievements
while raising his profile in the pantheon of Trojans quarterbacks.

Shiffrin closes in on ski racing milestones

By Eric Willemsen

reporter who asked her about breaking

records last week after the American won
three races in three days in Semmering.
Day, who took over from Brandon
Dyksterhouse as her head coach in the summer, has been as impressed with the way
Shiffrin has handled the pressure - as he has
with her racing.
No matter the event, people think she is
going to win races every time she appears at
the start, he said. She has recently been

able to manage these expectations effectively and she is focused more on the performance than on the outcome.
Day previously worked with the U.S.
mens ski team, coaching Ted Ligety to four
world titles and two World Cup giant slalom
But he downplayed his contribution to
Shiffrins improvement in the discipline,
which was underlined by her back-to-back
GS wins last week.

The adjustments I made to her skiing

have not been incredibly difficult because,
fundamentally, she is such a strong skier,
Day said. Truthfully, her pace in training is
still higher than what we saw in
Her dominance in slalom and progress in
GS have given Shiffrin a 215-point overall
World Cup lead over defending champion
Lara Gut. As the Swiss skier doesnt race
slaloms, the gap is likely to become even
bigger with three slaloms and a GS coming
up in the next eight days.
Still, Shiffrins team wont make winning
the overall title its main target for the season.
I think everybody else is more excited
about the potential of her competing for the
overall than she is, Day said. Yes, it could
look extremely favorable and it is impossible to ignore. I wont say we are ignoring it,
but we are still managing toward her goals
for the season. We are not going to chase
around speed races just to stay in contention.
Even so, the career milestones will just
keep coming if she wins in Croatia.
Stenmark celebrated 27 of his record 86
career wins before he turned 22 in March
1978, while only two other women have
won eight slaloms in a row Switzerlands
Vreni Schneider in 1988-89 and Croatias
Janica Kostelic in 2000-01.
In fact, Shiffrin has won the last 12
slaloms she competed in, but missed five
races due to a knee injury last season. The
last slalom she took part in but failed to win
was a night race at Flachau, Austria in
January 2015.

After Granucci and Cholokian scored firsthalf goals to give the Tigers a sturdy lead
going into the second half, junior defender
Caroline Kearney scored the clinching goal
in the 65th minute, knocking home a shot
from approximately 20 yards out for her
first goal of the season.
It was nice to see some other players
scoring in this tournament, McCallion
said. I think it gave them some confidence
because [Deza] has been scoring about 95
percent of our goals.

up the lead to 2-0. After Queen Creek cut the

lead to 2-1 in the second half, Kearney produced her second goal in as many games to
seal the win.
Saturdays championship game was chock
full of drama. In taking on Marana (11-3),
the Tigers had to contend with one of the
most prolific scorers in the tournament in
sophomore Alejandra Ramirez. McCallion
turned to sophomore Shay Levy to defend
Ramirez, and Levy was able to keep the
Marana star in check.
NDB earned an early advantage when junior Bianca Baldini scored off a corner kick
with a header in the 22nd minute to secure a
1-0 lead. Previous to the tournament,
Baldini had been serving as the Tigers
goalkeeper while Stogner was on the mend
from a concussion.
The Tigers took the one-goal advantage
into the half then added to the lead in the
62nd minute when Granucci scored her

fourth goal of the tournament, taking a pass

at the back post and dribbling in to boot it
home. The insurance goal proved key as
Marana answered back with a late goal in
the 73rd minute, closing the lead to 2-1.
Everybody was going bananas,
McCallion said. It was intense.
NDB was able to keep the pressure on and
hunker down to earn the tournament championship trophy in the teams first appearance in the annual Arizona Showcase.
They rolled their sleeves up, McCallion
said. The coaches tried to steady the ship a
little bit and that was it. We won the tournament and it was a nice plane ride home.
Through 10 non-league games, NDB is
unbeaten with a 9-0-1 record. The Tigers
have a chance to match their best start since
2008-09 the team opened with a 10-0-1

have it. And anti-poverty groups are focused
on preventing cuts to food stamp and welfare programs rather than trying to expand
them as planned.
There is so much uncertainty at the federal level, because theyre talking about some
really drastic policy choices that could have
a really negative impact on California,
said Scott Graves, research director for the
California Budget & Policy Center, a leftleaning research group.
Last year was a particularly effective one
for California liberals. The Legislature
extended the nations most ambitious climate change programs, raised the minimum
wage to $15 and toughened gun laws.
Lawmakers boosted overtime for farmworkers, expanded welfare benefits and enacted a
sweeping array of anti-tobacco measures.
This year had all the makings of continuing the trend. Democrats will arrive

Fees could help fuel loans or grants to
subsidize construction of new units, homebuyer loan programs, rental subsidies,
housing rehabilitation programs or other
similar initiatives, according to the report.
For his part, Vice Mayor Michael
Brownrigg said he believes there is merit to
examining the proposal.
Clearly creating a pool of capital that
can help cities address affordable housing
one way or another is an incredibly useful
tool, he said.
But he was wary of establishing unrealistic expectations that the money generated
could be a silver bullet to resolving the cost
of living challenges facing many locals.
I wouldnt want people to think this is



chambers enough to advance their own

agenda without GOP interference if they
stand united.
Notably, though, Democrats took their
first action as a supermajority not to
advance a contentious public policy objective but to send a message to Trump.
Right after they took the oath of office
last month, Democrats in the Assembly and
Senate suspended legislative rules to immediately approve resolutions urging the
incoming administration to keep a program
allowing hundreds of thousands of young
immigrants who are in the country illegally
to stay.
While the California Legislature has
broad authority to chart its own agenda, it
relies significantly on federal dollars.
According to the state Department of
Finance, California gets $96 billion from
the federal government, a figure almost as
large as the states $122 billion general
Those federal funds cover a massive share
of the budget for health care, food stamps,
welfare and other safety-net programs.
Liberals are particularly worried that the
budget prepared by U.S. House Speaker Paul
Ryan, R-Wisconsin, will lead to severe cuts

in those programs through block grants or

other methods of shifting responsibility to
states, while also giving them more flexibility.
Block granting ... is just not whats in
the best interests of the recipients of those
programs, said Sen. Holly Mitchell, a Los
Angeles Democrat who will lead the state
budget committee next year. Were dealing
with hungry people, which we cannot
Graves noted that before the election, he
hoped the Legislature would take a serious
look at boosting subsidized child care and
Supplemental Security Income payments
for seniors and people with disabilities.
That seems less likely now.
Congressional Republicans also are
eager to repeal President Barack Obamas
health care overhaul, which provides $20
billion for the Medi-Cal program and private insurance subsidies. Preserving that
coverage, much less expanding it to cover
more people, would be extremely expensive.
The California Endowment has provided
millions of dollars for an advocacy campaign called Health4All to expand Medi-Cal
coverage for immigrants who cant prove

theyre legally in the United States. In

December, it announced a new initiative:
Fight4All. The $25 million effort reflects a
shift in focus from creating new rights to
defending existing ones.
A whole host of areas where significant
progress has been made in California in the
last five or six years or so, we feel that work
is now in jeopardy, said Dr. Tony Iton, the

Still, conservatives in the state arent
optimistic that Trumps presidency will

Californias Legislature is sort of like its

California director of the National

Quite frankly, whatever the Trump

dont see that changing.

problem, he said.
Should the fees ultimately be approved,
Brownrigg said the city is unlikely to generate enough money in a short time to make
a sizable dent in constructing the amount of
affordable housing commiserate with
An eye should also be kept to assuring the
cost charged to builders is not so steep that
they have a cooling effect on the
Burlingame development market, according
to the report.
A key to making sure Burlingame does not
overcharge is comparing the rates to those
recently adopted by neighboring cities,
according to the report.
To offset the burden for builders, some
cities such as Redwood City, San Mateo and
San Carlos have approved reducing the
charges to those willing to pay prevailing
or area standard wages.
Burlingame officials first began considering the fees in 2015 following the completion of studies illustrating a link between
the construction of new living and work
space and the worsening affordability crisis.
These studies describe and quantify how

the development of homes, offices and commercial space creates a need for housing,
particularly for very low-, low- and moderate-income residents, according to the
A county report shows a significant gap
between the availability of housing and the
demand to live locally, as 54,600 jobs were
created between 2010 and 2014 in San
Mateo County, while only 2,100 new housing units were built.
Brownrigg suggested encouraging residential development along Rollins Road or
near the northern border to Millbrae adjacent to the Bay Area Rapid Transit station
could also be an effective means of increasing Burlingames housing stock, and ultimately addressing the affordability crisis.
We have a lot of areas where we can look
at a lot of new, creative, beautiful communi-

ties and affordability could be a big part of

that, he said.
On a broader scale, Brownrigg suggested
county officials taking the lead to establish
a more substantial fund helping nonprofit
organizations build and operate affordable
housing could also be an effective means of
addressing the issue.
In Burlingame though, he said councilmembers are interested in pursuing a wide
variety of efforts helping to lessen the
financial burden of living locally.
We spent the last year debating one
approach to affordable housing, and clearly
that was rejected by voters, he said of the
Measure R rent control proposal. I think
the council understands that is not the end
of the conversation about affordable housing and we look to spending this year looking for other approaches.

Q&A: The GOPs path to

repealing health care
By Alan Fram

WASHINGTON The stakes confronting Republicans

determined to dismantle President Barack Obamas health care
law were evident in one recent encounter between an Ohio
congressman and a constituent.
He said, Now you guys own it. Now fix it. Its on your
watch now, recalled GOP Rep. Pat Tiberi, chairman of a pivotal health subcommittee. And this is a supporter.
Republicans have unanimously opposed Obamas law since
Democrats muscled it through Congress in 2010. Theyve
tried derailing it scores of times but have failed, stymied by
internal divisions and Obamas veto power.
With the Republicans controlling Congress and Donald
Trump entering the White House on Jan. 20, their mantra of
repeal and replace is now a top-tier goal that the partys voters fully expect them to achieve starting this week.
But by unwinding the statute, the GOP would kill or recast
programs that provide coverage to 20 million Americans who
will be wary of anyone threatening their health insurance.
That and continuing Republican rifts over how to reshape the
law, pay for the replacement and avoid destabilizing health
insurance markets mean party leaders have a bumpy path
Q: Whats fi rs t?
A: When the new Congress convenes Tuesday, Senate
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said his chamber will begin debating a bare bones budget for next year.
Most significantly, that would trigger a special procedure letting Republicans repeal much of Obamas law by a simple
Senate majority. Thats big because GOP senators will only
have a 52-48 edge. The debate will also be a way for
Republicans to signal quickly to voters that theyre starting
to erase the law, even as they save actually doing it for later.
Q: And then?
A: Lawmakers will work on legislation actually repealing
much of Obamas law.
The legislation is likely to erase the mandate that people
buy insurance or face hefty IRS fines, which Republicans
despise. Also facing elimination or reductions: taxes Obama
imposed on upper-income people to finance the law, subsidies
that help millions afford health care and the expansion of
Medicaid health coverage to more lower-earning people.
Federal aid to Planned Parenthood would be halted, reflecting
GOP opposition to the right to abortion, one of the womens
health services provided by the organization.
They hope to pass the bill by late spring, but its provisions
probably wont take effect for up to four years to give lawmakers time to craft a replacement.
This wont be easy. Many congressional Republicans are
from states like Arizona, Nevada and Pennsylvania that have
added about 10 million people to Medicaid and will oppose
abandoning so many voters. Others will be nervous about
voting to repeal the overall law without having replacement
legislation to show constituents.
Republicans also worry that during the transition to a new
system, health insurers already struggling in some states
might protect themselves by leaving some markets and
boosting premiums. To ease that, GOP aides say theyre considering including some kind of stabilization fund in the
repeal bill to protect insurers against losses. That remains a
work in progress.
Q: Wi l l the 2 0 mi l l i o n peo pl e no w co v ered l o s e
thei r benefi ts ?
A: Some probably will, a byproduct of reducing Medicaid
coverage and dropping the requirement that individuals buy
insurance. That could be partly offset by some whod purchase
less expensive policies because the bill will probably let
insurers drop coverage for some of the 10 services they now
must provide, such as outpatient care and pregnancies.
At a briefing for reporters, top House GOP aides said the
goal is universal access to health benefits, as opposed to
aiming for coverage of all Americans. They said Obamas law
ended up with many policies that are too expensive and offer
limited access to doctors, but the shift in focus to access
suggests Republicans dont want to be measured by the number of people actually covered.

The cardiac and hip fracture experiments focus on traditional Medicare, which remains the choice of nearly 7 in 10 out of
Medicares 57 million beneficiaries. The cardiac experiment involves both heart bypass and heart attack patients.

Medicare launches revamp for

heart attacks and hip fractures
By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar

WASHINGTON Heart attacks and

broken hips cause much suffering and
worry as people grow older. This year,
Medicare wants to start changing how
it pays for treatment of these lifethreatening conditions, to promote
Beneficiaries and family members may
notice a new approach.
Hospitals and doctors in dozens of
communities selected for large-scale
experiments on this front are already
gearing up. The goal is to test the
notion that better coordination among
clinicians, hospitals, and rehab centers can head off complications, prevent avoidable hospital re-admissions
and help patients achieve more stable
and enduring recoveries. If results back
that up, Medicare can adopt the
changes nationwide.
The cardiac and hip fracture experiments are the latest development in a
big push under the Obama administration to reinvent Medicare, steering the
program away from paying piecemeal
for services, regardless of quality and
cost. Its unclear whether Donald Trump
as president will continue the pace of
change, slow down or even hit pause.

Trumps Health and Human Services

nominee, orthopedic-surgeon-turnedcongressman Tom Price, has expressed
general concern that the doctor-patient
relationship could be harmed by
Medicare payment changes seeking to
contain costs. And the Medicare division that designed the experiments
the Center for Medicare & Medicaid
Innovation is itself under threat of
being abolished because it was created
by President Barack Obamas 2010
health care law.
Some outside groups, including
AARP, worry that Medicare may be
moving too fast and that focusing on
cost containment could lead to beneficiaries being shortchanged on rehab
Innovation center director Patrick
Conway, who also serves as Medicares
chief medical officer, is plowing ahead
nonetheless. Delivery system reform
and paying for better care are bipartisan issues, Conway said. And quality
ranks ahead of cost savings in evaluating any results, he added.
The cardiac and hip fracture experiments focus on traditional Medicare,
which remains the choice of nearly 7 in
10 out of Medicares 57 million beneficiaries. The cardiac experiment
involves both heart bypass and heart

attack patients. The trials join similar

ongoing tests involving surgery for
hip and knee replacement, as well as
care for cancer patients undergoing
In the experiments, doctors, hospitals, and rehab centers get paid the regular Medicare rates. But hospitals are
given responsibility for overall quality and cost, measured against benchmarks set by Medicare. If the hospital
meets or exceeds the goals, it earns a
financial bonus, which can be shared
with other service providers. If the
hospital falls short, it may have to pay
the government money.
Now your doctor and hospital are
working together to make sure they are
well coordinated, said Conway.
Under the old system, if a patient was
discharged from the hospital after a
heart attack, they might hand you a
piece of paper that said please follow
up with your primary care doctor,
Conway continued. In this model, the
hospital is going to have a strong
incentive to make sure you follow up.
Overall, about 168,000 Medicare
beneficiaries are treated for heart
attacks in a given year, while 48,000
undergo heart bypass surgery for
clogged arteries and 109,000 have surgery for broken hips.

Lance Fung Gallery.
Fung became known for his foresight in showcasing installation and
video art and his sense for curating
smaller group art shows that facilitated
conversations between different pieces
of art. His approach caught the attention of the 2006 Winter Olympics
organizing committee, which brought
Fung on to curate a special exhibition
of The Snow Show, a series of exhibitions Fung had shown previously in
Finland. The 2006 Olympics Snow
Show featured six art installations
made from snow, including a snow
dial and geometric sledding chutes, in
the Olympic village in Torino, Italy.
Fungs participation in the Olympic
Snow Show solidified his role in the
public art world.
I went from art dealer to art curator,
he said of his transition from directing
his own art gallery to working on more
collaborative projects that have produced installations in public spaces.
Most of Fungs collaborative work has
been done in the name of Fung
Collaboratives, an arts organization he
developed to foster collaborative projects between artists of a variety of
Artlantic was Fungs first collaborative project with Talley, as well as his
first in-depth experience with the set of
unique partnerships upon which each of
these projects rely. Atlantic City
Alliance, a nonprofit, approached Fung
to transform a 7.5-acre vacant lot that
partially lined the citys Boardwalk
into a temporary park with the goal of
reinvigorating an urban area that had
been beleaguered by the recession.
In the shape of an infinity sign, the
parks outer edges enclosed several
installation pieces that appeared in
phases over two years. Among these
pieces were a large, wooden pirate ship
created by artists Ilya and Emilia
Kabakov, and large, illuminated text
pieces set in the grassy area within the
loops of the infinity by artist Robert
Barry. Visitors were invited to climb on
the life-size ship and move the illuminated letters to create words and expressions as they walked around the park.
Within a week or two, the pirate ship
was known as the playground, said
Fung. During site visits, the couple saw
children wearing pirate costumes and
climbing aboard, and bachelorette parties stopping to take photos with the
When we heard about that, we knew
we did our job, he said.

Redwood City installation

The couple will have an opportunity
to put their findings into practice as

they guide Redwood City through the

process of relocating the pirate ship
that graced the Boardwalk as a part of
Artlantic just a few years ago.
Last month, the Redwood City
Council approved the purchase of Ilya
and Emilia Kabakovs famous pirate
ship installation. Though the location of the piece has yet to be determined, the city was able to purchase
the piece at one-fourth of the pieces
appraised value due to a generous
donation on behalf of the Kabakovs.
This will be the Kabakovs first
permanent sculpture in the U.S, said
Fung. The Redwood City project
shows that it takes a village, the
desire to do something completely
unrealistic, to own it and have it
become permanent.
For Fung and Talley, the publics
response to Artlantic was a vote of
confidence in their approach to public
art. They were also encouraged by the
response of local trades to the project.
Early on in the building process,
Talley led a meeting with local union
workers in a variety of trades to present the project. At the meeting, a local
tile union volunteered their services,
and a carpentry union volunteered to
install the pirate ship. Talley was not
surprised by the unions willingness
to help.
Unions give back to the community all the time, he said.
But he was surprised to find the project offered trade workers with a unique
opportunity to apply their training to
a creative process. Talley worked
closely with apprentices from the
local painters union to translate a
maze of intricate geometric shapes
onto a stretch of the Boardwalk and
the side of one wall. Artist John
Roloff conceived the design on paper,
which the apprentices applied to the
surfaces using paint rollers and brushes.
I was told [by their union manager]
theyll never work on a project like
this for the rest of their lives, said

The value of public art

The couple has found that their collaborative projects, especially those
in the public realm, have opened up
new creative opportunities for everyone involved. The perception of public art among both artists and the general public, however, creates unique
challenges to this work.
For some artists, the idea of creating
public art carries with it prohibitive
stigmas. Some perceive the process of
creating or selling public art as transactional, separating the artists intentions from the site and publics
engagement with a piece.
The art world views public art as a
stepchild, Fung said. They call it
plop art, like some artist or artisan

made it in a studio and someone comes

in, buys it in blue, and plops it into a
Others object to what can be a laborious process of working with government officials and regulations to create a piece of art.
Its considered art by committee,
he said.
According to Fung, artists can feel
stifled by the many parameters that
might outline a pieces creation, such
as ADA and space specifications. For
the general public, the obstacles often
lie in a lack of familiarity with art and
the artistic process.
Public art is the first access that
every person has to art, said Fung.
The kid, the mother, the truck driver
because theyre going to the mall,
thats what they see. When people are
not familiar with contemporary art or
public art, they question the value.
Fung knows from experience that an
art degree isnt required to appreciate
and engage with art.
What you see and like in art, no
one can take that away, he said. We
dont want people to think that if you
judge art differently from someone
else, youre wrong.

Sparking a dialogue
To help people understand this,
Fung and Talley are partnering with
Bay Area cities and nonprofits to
spark a dialogue around public art.
They are hoping to equip average citizens, young and old, with the language to talk about art and understand
their preferences.
Fung and Talley both taught twoweek intercession classes at Design
Tech High School in Burlingame in
December, where they led high school
students through sculpture and woodworking projects, respectively.
Intercession classes allow them to
share moments from their professional experiences with students, as well
as learn more about how the public
engages with art.
You dont have to go to the lowest
common denominator to get people to
engage with the art, said Fung. If
Im teaching an art class for high
school students, I dont have to water
it down. I can teach at the college
level, and people can take what they
can from it.
According to Fung, the right piece
of art will engage any audience, and
will move the conversation beyond
whether its likable to what it means
for each viewer.
Great art takes you back to the art
again and again, he said. We like it
when a work of art is challenging. Its
meant to be thought-provoking. Id
rather get art that makes you think, I
dont like it, but why dont I like it?
than something that makes you walk

IS suicide bomber kills 36 in Baghdad market

By Sinan Salaheddin
and Murtada Faraj

BAGHDAD A suicide bomber

driving a pickup loaded with
explosives struck a bustling market in Baghdad on Monday,
killing at least 36 people in an
attack claimed by the Islamic State
group hours after French President
Francois Hollande arrived in the
Iraqi capital.
The bomb went off in a fruit and
vegetable market that was packed
with day laborers, a police officer
said, adding that another 52 people were wounded.
During a press conference with
Hollande, Prime Minister Haider
al-Abadi said the bomber pretended to be a man seeking to hire day
laborers. Once the workers gathered around, he detonated the vehicle.
IS claimed the attack in a statement circulated on a militant website often used by the extremists.
It was the third IS-claimed attack
in as many days in and around
Baghdad, underscoring the lingering threat posed by the group
despite a string of setbacks elsewhere in the country over the past
year, including in and around the
northern city of Mosul.
The attack took place in Sadr
City, a vast Shiite district in eastern Baghdad that has been repeatedly targeted by Sunni extremists
since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion.
Shiite militiamen loyal to
Muqtada al-Sadr, the firebrand cleric for whose family the neighborhood is named, were seen evacuating bodies in their trucks before


Blood stains are seen at the site of car bomb attack in a Baghdad, Iraq.
ambulances arrived. Dead bodies
were scattered across the bloody
pavement alongside fruit, vegetables and laborers shovels and
axes. A minibus filled with dead
passengers was on fire.
Asaad Hashim, an owner of a
mobile phone store nearby,
described how the laborers pushed
and shoved around the bombers
vehicle, trying to get hired.
Then a big boom came, sending them up into the air, said the
28-year old, who suffered shrapnel
wounds to his right hand. He
blamed the most ineffective secu-

rity forces in the world for failing

to prevent the attack.
An angry crowd cursed the government, even after a representative of al-Sadr tried to calm them.
Late last month, Iraqi authorities
started removing some of the security checkpoints in Baghdad in a
bid to ease traffic for the capitals

Police question Netanyahu

over corruption allegation
By Ian Deitch

JERUSALEM Israeli Prime Minister

Benjamin Netanyahu was grilled by police
investigators for over three hours at his official residence Monday night, opening what
could be a politically damaging criminal
investigation into suspicions that he
improperly accepted gifts from wealthy supporters.
Netanyahu has repeatedly denied wrongdoing, but the involvement of the national fraud
squad indicated questions raised about him are
considered serious enough to merit an investigation. Police said Netanyahu was questioned under caution, a term signaling that
anything he said could be used as evidence
against him.
Israels Justice Ministry later issued a statement saying Netanyahu was questioned on
suspicion of receiving benefits from business
The ministry said investigators also had
looked into suspicions of campaign finance
irregularities and double billing for travel
expenses, but determined there was not
enough evidence to merit criminal charges.
Netanyahu has denied what he calls baseless reports about the investigation.
Weve been paying attention to reports in
the media, we are hearing the celebratory

Kremlin visit for children

of diplomats expelled by U.S.
MOSCOW A Russian state news agency
says that the children of Russian diplomats
expelled by the United States are being
invited to a holiday gathering at the
The White House on Thursday ordered 35
diplomats out of the country as part of measures aimed at punishing Russia for alleged
hacking interference in the U.S. presidential election. Many of them and their fami-

mood and the atmosphere

and the corridors of the
opposition, and I would
like to tell them, stop
with the celebrations,
dont rush, he told a
meeting of lawmakers
from his Likud Party earlier Monday. There wont
be anything because there
is nothing.
Israels Channel 2 TV has said that
Netanyahu accepted favors from businessmen in Israel and abroad and that he is the central suspect in a second investigation that
also involves family members.
The newspaper Haaretz said billionaire
Ronald Lauder, a longtime friend of
Netanyahus, was linked to the affair. Channel
10 TV has reported that Netanyahus oldest
son, Yair, accepted free trips and other gifts
from Australian billionaire James Packer.
In late September, Lauder was summoned by
police for questioning related to a certain
investigation conducted by them and in
which Mr. Lauder is not its subject matter,
said Helena Beilin, Lauders Israeli attorney.
After a short meeting, he was told that his
presence is no longer required and that there
shall be no further need for additional meetings.

Some officials complained that the expulsion ruined families celebrations of New
Years Eve, Russias main gift-giving festivity.
Elena Krylova, a spokeswoman for the
presidential affairs administration, was
quoted by the Tass news agency as saying
that a visit for the children to see the holiday tree in the State Kremlin Palace is being

Several smaller bombings elsewhere in the city on Monday
killed another 20 civilians and
wounded at least 70, according to
medics and police officials. All
officials spoke on condition of
anonymity because they were not
authorized to brief reporters.
The U.S. State Department condemned the wave of attacks in the
strongest possible terms.
These vicious acts of mass murder are a sobering reminder of the
need to continue coalition opera-

tions against Daesh and to eliminate the threat this terrorist group
poses, it said, using an Arabic
acronym for IS.
Separately, the U. S. military
announced the death of a coalition
service member in Iraq in a noncombat related incident on
Monday, without providing further details.
Hollande meanwhile met with
al-Abadi and President Fuad
Masum, and later traveled to the
self-governing northern Kurdish
region to meet with French troops
and local officials. He pledged
support for helping displaced
Iraqis return to the city of Mosul,
where Iraqi forces are waging a
massive offensive against IS.
We must also prepare a political solution for Mosuls post-liberation so that its inhabitants can
live together, he said. Hollande
also visited a military outpost on
the outskirts of the city.
France is part of the Americanled coalition formed in 2014 to
fight IS after the extremist group
seized large areas in Iraq and
neighboring Syria. France has
suffered multiple attacks claimed
by the extremist group.
Since the Mosul operation started on Oct. 17, Iraqi forces have
seized around a quarter of the city.
Last week, the troops resumed
fighting after a two-week lull due
to stiff resistance by the militants
and bad weather.
Mosul is Iraqs second largest
city and the last major urban area
in the country controlled by IS.
Iraqi and U.S. commanders hope to
drive IS from the city in the next
three months.
