Highway robbers strike coast


Tailgating suspects use gun, knife to hold up victims south of Half Moon Bay
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

A brazen coastal highway robbery has


local law enforcement on alert and comparing notes with other agencies after two victims were held up at gunpoint Sunday night.
Theres minimal information about the
two masked robbers who were driving a car
without license plates when one pointed a

handgun at a female drivers head while they


other held a knife to the neck of her male
passenger, according to the Sheriffs Office.
The crime took place in a dark, rural part
of the county and the Sheriffs Office is trying to determine if the victims were randomly targeted and simply in the wrong
place at the wrong time.
This is pretty brazen and we havent had
anything like this, so its concerning, said

sheriffs Detective Sal Zuno. Especially


because the vehicle didnt have any license
plates that we can identify.
The man and woman were driving south
on the narrow two-lane Highway 1 around
9:30 p.m. when a car started to tailgate
them. The victims, San Mateo County residents in their 30s, were on their way to
Santa Cruz when they decided to pull over
and let the tailgater pass, Zuno said.

The woman pulled over to the shoulder of


the road between Half Moon Bay and San
Gregorio when the robbers, driving a dark
Ford sedan, immediately cut in front of them
and stopped, blocking the victims, Zuno
said.
The two robbers clad in masks and gloves
approached the victims on either side of the

Due in part to the belief that year-round


school calendars enhance student learning,
more than 350 people signed a petition
advocating in favor of keeping the existing
class schedule in San Mateo-Foster City

The San Mateo-Foster City Elementary
School District Board of Trustees voted 3-2

during a meeting Thursday, Feb. 4, to postpone a decision proposing to amend the


class calendar next year, partially because of

Council eyes approving 116-acre site plan


Rail station development policy again to come before Millbrae officials
By Austin Walsh

Comment on

www.smdailyjournal.com

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

After formally amending the proposed guidelines regulating development near the Millbrae rail station to
address issues raised by the local
school community, officials stand to
approve a policy which could shape
the citys future.
Members of the City Council will
again consider the Millbrae Station
Area Specific Plan during a meeting
Tuesday, Feb. 9, as officials look to
approve the master plan regulating
construction in the 116-acre site near
the intersection of Millbrae Avenue
and El Camino Real.
The council approved, by a 3-2
vote, a proposal last month to adjust
the citys general plan to make way
for development in the area near the
Caltrain and Bay Area Rapid Transit
station, but stopped short of giving
the green light to the station area
plan due in part to concerns raised by
residents regarding potential impact
on local schools.
At the behest of community members, city officials drafted language
which requires developers wanting to
build projects in the specific plan
area to meet with officials from the
Millbrae Elementary School District
to potentially discuss offsetting
costs associated with expected student population growth.
Under the additional considerations
granted to school officials, some
councilmembers said they believe the
path has been paved for the specific
area plan to move ahead at the upcoming meeting.
I think the plan is ready to be
approved, said Councilwoman Ann
Schneider. There are more issues
that need to be addressed, but those
issues will be addressed as specific
projects come forward.
Two developers have brought forth
designs for projects to be built near
the BART and Caltrain station, but
have yet to submit formal plans

More

while waiting for the council to


approve the station area regulations.
Republic Urban has been hired by
BART to build more than 300 residential units, as well as more than
160,000 square feet of office space
and nearly 47,000 square feet of retail
space and potentially a hotel on
property owned by the regional transit agency.
The same developer has also proposed building 55 units of affordable
housing in a separate project which
would be offered to Millbrae residents
who are veterans of the armed forces.
Vincent Muzzi has expressed interest in redeveloping his 150 Serra
Ave. property into a project comprised of 500 residential units,
267,000 square feet of office space,
and more than 30,000 square feet of
retail space.
The proposed projects, as well as
those which could come forward in
the future, are expected to add nearly
900 students to the local elementary
school district, which school officials are concerned will push enrollment beyond the capacity of existing
facilities.
Schneider said she believed
approving the specific plan would
allow city officials to discuss community benefits, such as fees paid to
the school district by developers to
address facility constraints, as each
formal project proposal comes forward.
Passing the specific plan means
we as a council and as a city can have
the chance to talk about the future of
Millbrae, she said.
Vice Mayor Reuben Holober said he
too believed the specific plan was
nearly ready to be approved by the
council.

ting it finalized, said Holober.


At a previous meeting, Holober
said he felt the specific plan could be
approved.
Councilwoman Gina Papan said she
expects a substantial turnout from
members of the school community at
the upcoming meeting, as some residents feel the concerns regarding
schools have not been adequately
addressed.
Papan and Councilman Wayne Lee
were the two votes against moving
the plan forward in the previous
meeting.
Papan said she believed there is
still room for the specific plan to be
improved, but believes she is likely
in the minority among councilmembers.
My guess is, sadly, they will pass
it, she said, of her colleagues on the
council.
For his part, Holober said he
believes the plan has been substantially refined as officials have worked
to revise it from the initial documents, and councilmembers have
done a good job addressing concerns
raised by members of the Millbrae
community.
This is something weve been
working on for several months now,
and the last few meetings have been
very productive, he said. I think we
are getting close to having a document that we can have a consensus
agreement on.
Schneider added she believed passing the specific plan would pave the
way for city officials to discuss other
issues which stand to shape the future
of Millbrae.
Ultimately she said she believes
the specific plan addresses a variety
of concerns raised by residents, but is
uncertain whether it will be approved
until the council meeting is held.
Its looking positive, but I cant
say for certain, she said.

The average price in California for a gallon of regular gasoline

average, according to Gordon Schremp, a fuels adviser at the

Experts tell panel why gas


is so expensive in California
By Alison Noon
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO Gouging by oil companies could be


one reason California drivers pay about 76 cents more for a
gallon of regular gas than motorists elsewhere in the
nation, a state government panel was told Monday.
Fuel experts and consumer advocates also told the
Petroleum Market Advisory Committee that a high state gas
tax and more rigorous regulations have kept prices relatively high as oil prices have plunged across the nation in
recent months.
Drivers in California pay more partly because of stiffer
fuel blend standards to meet the states unique air-quality
rules, speakers said at the hearing.
The panel, appointed by the California Energy
Commission, is studying whether changes in state policies
and laws could rein in the prices.
The average price in California for a gallon of regular
gasoline was $2.50 on Monday 76.5 cents higher than
the national average, according to Gordon Schremp, a fuels
adviser at the CEC Energy Assessment Division.
Committee Chairman Severin Borenstein said taxes and
cleaner-burning fuel account for about 40 cents of the price
difference.

At least 42 victims, 30
suspects uncovered during
Super Bowl human trafficking stings
Santa Clara County sheriffs deputies
arrested or cited dozens of men for soliciting
prostitution and found more than 40 potential human trafficking victims during a
series of stings in the weeks leading up to
Sundays Super Bowl, a sheriffs sergeant
said.
The Super Bowl, held this year in Levis
Stadium in Santa Clara, was believed to
bring increased prostitution activity so the
Santa Clara County Sheriffs Office stepped
up enforcement for three weeks as the game
approached.
During that time, deputies found at least
42 potential human trafficking victims and
put more than 20 of them in touch with
social workers, sheriffs Sgt. James Jensen
said. Two or more of those victims were
under 18 years old. One victim was 15 years
old and another was 17 years old, Jensen
said. Most victims were from outside Santa
Clara County.
However, some of the women and girls
engaging in prostitution were determined
not to be victims. One girl was cited for
prostitution and resisting arrest, another
was contacted twice during the stings and
cited, and two were cited for loitering with
intent for prostitution.
One potential victim disclosed other
crimes when contacted, Jensen said.
Deputies also cited or arrested 30 men
for soliciting prostitution. Four people
were cited for aiding in prostitution, one
p ers o n was arres t ed fo r v i o l at i n g a
domestic violence restraining order and
three people were arrested for outstand-

ing warrants, Jensen said.

Jewelry store robbed at gunpoint


by glasses-wearing suspects
A Half Moon Bay jewelry store was robbed
at gunpoint Monday morning and the
Sheriffs Office has released security photos
hoping the public can help identify the two
men responsible.
The fist suspect entered the Goldworks
jewelry store at 542 Main St. around 10:30
a.m. and began speaking to two employees,
according to the Sheriffs Office.
After brandishing a handgun, the suspect
walked behind the counter where he began to
place jewelry into a black bag he was carrying. A second suspect then entered the store
and noticed a employee pressed a panic
alarm. He notified the other suspect and they
immediately fled on foot south on Main
Street, according to the Sheriffs Office.
Deputies responded but were unable to
locate the suspects after searching the area.
The two men stole an unknown amount of
jewelry and no employees were injured. The
first suspect is described as a white man
between 25 and 35 years old, 5 feet 7 inches
tall and weighing about 150 pounds. He was

California State University


campuses prep for strike
By Lisa Leff
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO The union that represents California State University faculty
said Monday it is preparing for a five-day
strike at the systems 23 campuses, by far
the largest walkout since professors and
instructors won collective bargaining
rights in the early 1980s.
The California Faculty Associations
board of directors voted Friday night to
schedule a strike for April 13-15 and April
18-19 unless Cal State administrators
before then increase the size of the pay raises the unions 26,000 members will receive
this school year, President Jennifer Eagan
said.
The strike holds the potential to bring the
campuses to a virtual standstill. The association represents counselors, librarians and
coaches as well as faculty members who

would cancel classes and skip scheduled


office hours to walk picket lines, Eagan
said.
The strike would be a historic strike,
Eagan said. If it happens, it will impact the
CSU for a very long time.
Allied labor organizations that represent
custodians, bus drivers and other support
staff have agreed not to cross the lines, if a
work stoppage is called, she said.
The CSU chancellors office did not have
immediate comment on the unions plans.
The administration previously has said the
raises the union is seeking would cost $69
million that already has been pledged to
increasing enrollment, hiring more faculty,
and initiatives to improve graduation rates.
Union members currently are in the second-year of a three-year contract that included across-the-board pay raises of 1.6 percent and 3 percent raises for some coaches
and part-time instructors for the 2014-15
school year.

Lawmakers unveil state


health plan tax proposal
By Jonathan J. Cooper
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO The California


Legislature has unveiled a bill imposing a
new tax on health insurance plans to help
pay for Medi-Cal.
The bill introduced Monday would prevent
a $1.1 billion hole in Californias health
care budget. But it first needs bipartisan support in the Assembly and Senate to achieve
the supermajority required of tax increases.

The California Association of Health


Plans says it has not yet taken a position on
the bill.
Gov. Jerry Browns administration has
worked for months to negotiate a compromise that could win support from insurers.
The new tax replaces a tax that applied
only to Medi-Cal managed care organizations. The new tax would be offset by a cut
in existing health insurance taxes.
The bill could begin moving through legislative committees as soon as this week.

Craigslist safe zone proposed

the idea.
Everyone is selling everything on the

public, he said about the safe zones. This
is an example of law enforcement and the
community stepping up together to tackle a
modern problem.
A hindrance, he said, is whether a police
department has the space to create the
zones.
The idea has been discussed locally, said
San Mateo Police Chief Susan Manheimer.
The exchanges should be made in well-lit,
video-monitored public places when the
seller only knows the buyer through the
Internet.
While we agree that the area of the police
department is a safe place for such an
exchange, formally establishing it with our
public as an official Exchange Zone is
another matter requiring a certain level of
resources. We would certainly not discourage our public from using our SMPD lot if
they choose to do so. However, we do not
currently have a plan to advertise it to the

Canepa plans to introduce the idea in a
press conference Tuesday in Daly City.
With surveillance cameras already in
place at our police station under 24-hour

Conservation of
the Earth is no debate
Editor,
Another thoughtful commentary by
Editor Jon Mays highlights history,
scientic evidence and the possible
doubts regarding climate change (The
Earth and its changing climate column in the Feb. 5 edition of the Daily
Journal). Fact or theory? I tend to
believe the current evidence attributing
global warming mostly to human
activity and our bad habits. However,
there is room for question when one
considers documented climate variations over thousands of millions of
years. Whatever your viewpoints may
be, the Greenland glaciers are melting,
rapidly. The icy elds of the Antarctic
and Arctic areas are melting. The
oceans are warming, and waters are
deepening. The ocean temperatures are
affecting sh and mammals in our seas.
Tides are rising, and weather around the
world is distorted by these changing
temperatures.
What should we do? Regardless of El
Nio, it just makes good sense for each
of us to stop wasting water, energy and
food. Rather than live on unhealthful
packaged food, see what you can nd at
your local farmers markets. Eat a carrot instead of buying Ex-Lax. Buy
some fresh berries, apples or tangerines instead of those expensive candy
bars that promote ber. Try almond
milk on your cereal instead of halfand-half. Dont waste. Keep the temperature in your home at a modest
level. Dont speed your car. Carpool
for once. Walk to the store or ride your
bike. All of these good habits will help
to reduce the need for fossil fuels,
which might possibly be warming our
climate.
Editor Mays gives us reasons to
rethink our lifestyle, in case climate
change is actually true. And if its not
true, so what? You will have taught
your children, your friends and neighbors how to live a more healthful
lifestyle. Get hip, be positive. You too
can help prevent climate change. That
is, if it really is happening.

The issue at hand

Editor,
Mr. Mays argument in his most
recent column (The Earth and its
changing climate in the Feb. 5 edition of the Daily Journal) for a
reassessment of our concern over the
role of human activity in exacerbating
climate change is, I am afraid to say,
quite dumbfounding. He jumbles a few
facts this and that way to arrive at a
rather obtuse conclusion: When it
comes to a changing climate, all there
is to do is adapt whatever that

climate change as if this is the problem we are facing today. And he derisively poses that it is presumptuous to
think that actions like driving an electric car will stave off this millennialong climate change. But who in the
world thinks that buying an electric car
would do such a thing? No one. This is
a clear strawman. We face a real problem, today, toward which we must take
real action now, lest we risk conditions

How is Peninsula
Health Care District
spending your tax money?
Editor,
If you are a taxpayer in San Bruno,
Millbrae, Burlingame, Hillsborough,
San Mateo or Foster City, you pay
taxes to the Peninsula Health Care
District. Their responsibility is to support community-based programs and
partnerships, and invest in health care
facilities.
The district has veered off course, and
taxpayers need to know their money is
being spent on facilities that are not
affordable or accessible to middle and
low-income people. The Trousdale, for
example, is the districts planned
assisted living and memory care center
that will be affordable only to wealthy
people. Middle- and low-income taxpayers will be excluded from this
much-needed care.
Now the district wants to build a 9acre wellness community on the old
hospital land (Health campus in the
works in the Feb. 6 edition of the
Daily Journal). It envisions cottages or
apartments, medical ofces and wellness services targeted to the aging
population. This is desperately needed,
but the district has not mentioned
affordability at all. Expensive consultants and marketing contractors have
been hired to tell the public how great
it will be, but not mentioning this
development will exclude most taxpayers, just like the Trousdale development.
Taxpayer dollars need to be spent on
the needs of all taxpayers.
Development is only good if it is good
for the entire community.

Fourteen months

Editor,
District Attorney Wagstaffe has a
duty to the citizens of this county to
pursue justice in a timely manner. He
owes us an explanation why Mr. Ladas
has delayed his preliminary hearing for
14 months. Also, a judge has a duty to
move his trial calendar by denying
repeated requests for postponements.
That obviously has not happened here
(Is evidence sufcient to try former
re chief? in the Feb. 4 edition of the
Daily Journal).
On the subject of excessive delays in
criminal cases, I suggest you ask the
district attorney what steps he has
taken to bring the April 1998 killer of
Millbrae Police Ofcer David Checutti
to trial. I understand this defendant is
in a mental hospital but why has he
not been brought to trial for 18 years?

Black History Month a


time to commemorate

his February marks the 90th anniversary of


Black History Months inception. The concept
of dedicating a month to commemorate the
invaluable contributions of African-Americans was
brought forth in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson. Known by
many as the father of black history, Woodson announced
the celebration of a week that recognized the invaluable
contributions that African-Americans had made to our
beloved nation.
Woodson is just one of the
countless African-Americans
who made significant changes
and contributions to America.
Today, I would like to focus on
Frederick Douglass one of
the prominent leaders of the
human rights movement in
the Civil War era.
Douglass story speaks to
the heart of the resilience in
the African-American spirit.
Jonathan Madison
Born into slavery in Maryland
in 1818, Douglass fought
daily to survive on the hot and brutal plantation.
Education was a luxury for slaves. Thus, he could not
read or write until he reached the age of 12. In secret and
at great risk, Douglass learned the alphabet from an
overseer of the plantation work. By his teenage years,
he was writing essays and teaching other slaves to read
and write.
Douglass escaped the hands of slavery at the age of 20
by boarding a Philadelphia bound train. Upon arrival in
the northern states as a free man, he wrote the following
sentiments in a letter describing his emotion: I lived
more in one day than in a year of my slave life. It was a
time of joyous excitement, which words can but tamely
describe. I felt as one might feel upon escape from a den
of hungry lions gladness and joy, like the rainbow,
defy the skill of a pencil.
Following his freedom, Douglass dedicated the
remainder of his life to achieving fundamental human
rights, such as the right to be free from involuntary
servitude and the universal right to vote. As a reformer,
abolitionist, orator and writer, Douglass led the movement for freedom during the Civil War era. Many historians today suggest that Douglass efforts contributed to
the passage of the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to
the Constitution, which abolished slavery, guaranteed
the right to equal protection under the law and the right
to vote.
I emphasize that Douglass was a leader of the human
rights movement because his contributions were not
limited to the civil rights movement of AfricanAmericans. In fact, one of Douglass most renowned
efforts in the human rights movement was his leadership in the fight for universal suffrage, particularly for
womens voting rights.
Although women did not achieve the right to vote
until the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1919,
Douglass fought for their right to do so at a time when
the issue was quite unpopular.
One of Douglass most notable achievements in advocating for womens voting rights came in 1848 when he
attended the Seneca Falls Convention, the first womens
rights convention. Douglass passionately called for the
passage of a resolution calling for womens universal
suffrage rights, which was subsequently passed following his speech.
Douglass also published the first African-American
newspaper, The North Star, in which he called for a
permanent end to slavery and all forms of human
oppression.
Douglass was just one of many of the AfricanAmerican leaders in the abolitionist movement, but his
life story reflects the resilience of the human spirit in
its unending fight for freedom.
This month, let us take a moment to commend the
African-American people who have made invaluable
contributions to our nation and world throughout history. Without those contributions, we would not have
many of the fundamental and human rights that many of
us take for granted each day.

Wall Street rode another wave of


selling Monday that sent U.S. stocks
sharply lower, before a late-afternoon
pullback stemmed some of the losses.
Investors unloaded materials, financials and other stocks, briefly knocking the Dow Jones industrial average
down more than 400 points.
Technology shares, which soared
last year, were targeted for especially
aggressive selling, bringing the techheavy Nasdaq composite index down
almost 20 percent from its record high
last year.
The losses left major market indexes
down for the second day in a row,
extending what has been a dismal
beginning of 2016 for the stock market, its worst start to a year on record.
European markets also fell sharply,
with the worst losses coming in weaker economies such as Greece, Spain,
and Italy. Traditional safe harbor
investments like gold and U.S. government bonds were among the few
bright spots in a market awash in red.
Traders are worried that the financial market weakness that were experiencing is going to lead to weakness
in the real economy, said Jim
McDonald, chief investment strate-

gist at Northern Trust.


The Dow fell 177.92 points, or 1.1
percent, to 16,027.05. The Standard &
Poors 500 lost 26.61 points, or 1.4
percent, to 1,853.44. The Nasdaq composite dropped 79.39 points, or 1.8
percent, to 4,283.75. The index is
within 110 points of being in what
Wall Street considers a bear market, or
a 20 percent drop from its high.
For the year, the Dow is now down 8
percent, while the S&P 500 is down
9.3 percent. The Nasdaq has lost 14.5
percent this year.
The stock market has been in a
slump for much of this year after a
lackluster 2015. Several factors have
kept investors in a selling mood,
including falling crude oil prices, the
impact of a stronger dollar on U.S.
company earnings, and heightened
concern that economic growth is slowing in China and elsewhere.
Fears of a global economic downturn
are now heightening concerns that the
U.S. economy could slide into a recession later this year.
The market anxiety helped push
bond prices higher, pulling down the
yield on the 10-year Treasury note to
1.75 percent from 1.84 percent late
Friday, a large move.
Investors looking for some positive
outlooks for 2016 arent finding much

in the latest wave of company earnings, either.


Many of the companies that have
reported quarterly results in recent
weeks also gave weak earnings outlooks for this year, noted Bill
Northey, chief investment officer at
the Private Client Group at U.S. Bank.
In fact, were now looking at

Yellen will testify amid predictions of slower rate hikes


By Martin Crutsinger
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Things looked so clear


back in mid-December. The Federal Reserve
raised its benchmark interest rate from
record lows, and it signaled the likelihood
of four more hikes in 2016.
That was then.
Panicky financial markets, global weakness and slumps in key U.S. economic sectors have since clouded the outlook for
more rate increases. Fridays jobs report for
January further complicated things. It
showed more pay for workers and rising
confidence among job seekers.
So are further Fed rate hikes coming
soon? No one seems sure. But as Chair
Janet Yellen addresses Congress this week,

most
analysts
and
investors think the Fed
will raise rates fewer
than four times this
year, if at all.
On Wednesday, Yellen
will outline the Feds
outlook in the first of
two days of semiannual
Janet Yellen testimony. Its unclear
how much shell say
about the likely timetable for rate increases. She and other Fed officials have stressed
that their decisions remain data dependent that is, hinge largely on the latest
economic data.
Much of that data has been tepid since the
Fed raised rates in December for the first
time in nearly a decade. Manufacturing has

slumped. Corporate profits are down.


Business stockpiles are up. Shrunken oil
prices have squeezed energy companies.
Weakness in China and other emerging
economies has rattled investors.
On the other hand, the job market the
most vital part of the economy remains
solid. Worker pay is even starting to show
its first significant gains since the Great
Recession ended 6 1/2 years ago. The Fed
has long awaited faster wage growth for
evidence that the job market is as strong
as the steady hiring gains and low unemployment rate (now 4.9 percent) would
suggest.
Once the Fed began raising rates late last
year, the widespread expectation was that it
would continue to boost its benchmark rate
gradually but steadily, most likely starting

India Internet ruling blocks Facebook Free Basics program


By Brandon Bailey
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Indias government


has essentially banned a Facebook program
that sought to connect with low-income residents by offering free access to a limited version of the social network and other Internet
services.
The ruling is a major setback for Facebook
CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who had lobbied hard
for the program as part of a campaign to
expand Internet access in developing countries. Its a victory for critics who argued that
Facebooks Free Basics program gave an
unfair advantage to some Internet services
over others.
Facebook has introduced Free Basics in
partnership with wireless carriers in dozens
of emerging nations, where the company

hopes to get more people online. The service


provides free access to a stripped-down version of Facebook and certain other Internet
sites including some that provide essential information like weather forecasts,
health education and job listings.
But the program has sparked debate in
some countries, particularly India, where
critics contend that Free Basics effectively
steers users toward Facebook and its partners, while making it harder for other
Internet services including homegrown
startups to build their own audiences.
In a much-awaited decision Monday, Indian
regulators
said
telecommunications
providers may not charge different or discriminatory rates for delivering different
kinds of Internet content.
The ruling essentially bans programs like
Free Basics that are based on whats

known as zero rating in industry jargon,


because they dont charge for downloading
certain kinds of data. In a policy memo,
Indian regulators warned that such programs
raise the risk that users knowledge and outlook ... would be shaped only by the information made available by those select offerings.
The regulators said their decision was guided by the principles of net neutrality, or the
concept that all websites and apps should be
treated equally by Internet access providers.
Net neutrality advocates contend that charging different rates based on content is unfair
both to consumers and to Internet services
that are competing for consumers attention.
U.S. regulators endorsed net neutrality in
rules enacted last year, but those rules dont
specifically ban carriers from exempting
some services from data limits.

Yelp 4Q sales higher, loss worse than seen as CFO resigns


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Restaurant reviews


site Yelp Inc. posted a mixed bag of results
Monday with higher revenue but lower profits than expected while saying its chief
financial officer will step down.
The earnings release came out unexpectedly before the market close, which caused a
modest spike in shares before they fell back
down to about 12 percent below Fridays
close.

The net loss in the fourth quarter through


December came to $22.2 million, or 29
cents per share, compared to the 3 cents per
share loss expected by analysts polled by
FactSet. The company said $20.3 million of
the loss was due to an income tax expense.
Revenue grew 40 percent to $153.7 million, ahead of the $152.3 million analysts
expected.
The company said CFO Rob Krolik will
step down at least by Dec. 15 or earlier if a
replacement is found before then. Krolik

joined the San Francisco company in 2011


when it was still privately held.
Yelp said it expects first-quarter revenue
of $154 million to $157 million and fullyear revenue of $685 million to $700 million. That represents year-over-year growth
of about 31 percent and 26 percent, respectively. Analysts expect the company to
post revenue of $154.3 million in the first
quarter and $687.5 million for 2016.
In afternoon trading, shares traded at
$15.90, down $2.20.

in March. But that was before China, the


worlds second-largest economy, signaled
that it was slowing even more than expected and oil prices resumed their fall. Global
markets have sunk in response. The Dow
Jones industrial average has dropped 7 percent so far this year. The tech-heavy Nasdaq
has shed 13 percent.
The value of the dollar has also strengthened further, crimping manufacturers,
whose export sales fell last year for the
first time since the recession year of 2009.
A key manufacturing gauge has been in
recession territory for four months.
The overall economy grew at a meager
0.7 percent annual rate in the OctoberDecember quarter, leading some analysts to
begin wondering about the possibility of
another recession within a year or two.

Talking heads offer fresh ideas for All-Star weekend


By Jon Krawczynski
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The Splash Brothers have turned the 3point contest into must-see TV. Zach LaVine
made the dunk contest cool again.
When the NBA convenes All-Star weekend
in Toronto beginning on Friday, the
leagues annual midseason showcase will
be as strong top to bottom as it has been in
some time. But that doesnt mean there
couldnt be ways to add more flavor and different twists to keep things fresh.

With that in mind, TNT


analysts
Charles
Barkley,
Shaquille
ONeal and Kenny Smith
were asked if there were
any changes they would
like to see the league
make to one of its most
popular events of the
season. And like most
Charles
other matters concerning
Barkley
the game, the trio didnt
hesitate to offer some suggestions.

I would love to see an


outdoor game, Barkley
said. That would be my
suggestion.
That wouldnt work in
Toronto next weekend,
obviously. But why not
give it a shot when the
All-Star Game next goes
to Miami or Phoenix or
Shaquille
Los Angeles?
ONeal
Barkley also would like
to see the league try a United States versus the

World format to get away from the Eastern


Conference versus the Western Conference
matchup used ever since the game was first
played in 1951. With the influx of international talent to the league and the NBAs global
reach, its an intriguing thought. This year the
Rising Stars Challenge featuring the best rookies and sophomores will be played that way.
Weve got enough international players
now to make it competitive, Barkley said.
I think that would be exciting.

Athlete of the Week

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Vinny Ferrari is looking for a strong finish to his Burlingame basketball career.
After last weeks performance, it would seem
the senior point guard is on the right track.
After the Panthers suffered a loss to
Capuchino Jan. 29 just their second loss
in Peninsula Athletic League South Division
play this season Ferrari led his team to a
pair of key wins last week to shore up at
least a tie for second place in the South.
Turning in the best back-to-back performances of his career, Ferrari totaled 57 points
in victories over Sequoia and Mills, including a 32-point outburst against Sequoia to
match his career high and clinch his selection as Daily Journal Athlete of the Week.
It was a tough loss (to Cap) but slip-ups
happen, Ferrari said. But we bounced back
with some pretty good basketball last
week.
Through his senior season, however,
Ferrari hasnt seen many slip-ups. He has
scored in double-figures in each of the
Panthers 22 games this year. And his 22.5
points-per-game scoring average leads the
PAL South Division.
But it is his precision in the clutch that
has Burlingame thinking big. It was two
seasons ago when Ferraris older brother
Frankie led the Panthers to a Central Coast
Section Open Division championship. A
sophomore reserve on that team, Ferrari is
now looking to make his mark on the CCS
stage as well.
Burlingame head coach Pete Harames has
helmed the peak of the Ferrari legacy, and
recognizes the crossover from one brother
to the other as holding a special place in the
Panthers storied history.
An Open championship, a county championship hopefully a couple county
championships I think its been a great
three years, Harames said. Its been terrific.
Sitting two games back of first-place
Menlo-Atherton in the current standings,
the Panthers are likely headed for the CCS
Division III playoff bracket this season. But

While many
lamented how boring the game was,
I found it fascinating watching two
defenses ultimately
decide the game
one of the rst
times that could be

Broncos linebacker Von Miller was an
absolute beast and had one of the best
defensive performances in Super Bowl

entire Denver defense had a game for the
ages, sacking Carolina quarterback Cam
Newton seven times, forcing four Panther
turnovers and for the longest time, scored
the games only touchdown.
The Panthers still have some work to
do. It became painfully evident
Carolinas offense as a whole was
no match for Denvers defense. A lot of
critics will hang the loss on Newton, and
he denitely deserves his fair amount
with his consistent overthrows, but the
caliber of talent surrounding him left the
Panthers wanting.

Knicks fire Fisher; Rambis named interim coach


By Brian Mahoney
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

GREENBURGH, N.Y. Derek Fisher had


just finished a long playing career when Phil
Jackson picked him to coach the New York
Knicks. Just 1 1/2 seasons later, Jackson
decided he needed someone else.
Fisher was fired Monday, with his team
having lost five straight and nine of 10 to
fall well back in the Eastern Conference
playoff race.
Its time for us to make a change, turn this
team around and move forward and get some
wins and keep going down the road we had
started here at the beginning of the year,
Jackson said at the teams practice facility.
Associate head coach Kurt Rambis was promoted to interim head coach at least through
the rest of the season. Rambis, like Fisher an
ex-Laker player and a former assistant under
Jackson, went 56-145 in two seasons as
Minnesotas coach and part of a season leading the Lakers.
The Knicks have fallen to 23-31, dropping
Fishers overall record to 40-96. Jackson

Derek Fisher

hired Fisher in June 2014,


just weeks after the point
guard was done playing.
Its a huge transition
from being a player to a
coach at any point in
time, let alone the season
after you retire from playing. So it was a very difficult situation, regardless
of where he coached,

Rambis said.
This is a historic franchise and this is a
franchise and a fan base thats used to winning and he started the process, and it wont
be finished and it may not be finished with
the next two coaches that are coming in, but
I think he was laying the foundation of doing
things the right way and turning this franchise around.
But Fisher wasnt winning lately, and
though Jackson praised his work ethic, he
had seen enough of the Knicks slow starts
and faulty finishes.
Jackson also questioned whether Fisher
took advantage of the experienced assistants

Top Cuban player, brother defect to join MLB


By Dionisio Soldevila
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic


Star Cuban infielder Yulieski Gourriel and
his younger brother slipped away from their
hotel in the Dominican Republic early
Monday in an apparent effort to launch
careers in Major League Baseball.
The departure of Yulieski and his brother
Loudes was confirmed by Granma, the
Communist Party newspaper in Cuba serving
as an outlet for official government statements.
The paper said on its website Monday
morning that the Gourriel brothers had
abandoned their hotel in an open attitude

of surrender to the merchants of professional baseball for profit.


The elder Yulieski has been one of the
Cuban players most highly praised by MLB
scouts since he played in his first World
Baseball Classic in 2006. His brother also
is considered a good prospect.
His departure was a blow not just to the
effort to keep talented players from fleeing
overseas but to the sport overall on the
island given his prominence, said Ismael
Sene, a Cuban baseball historian.
Nobody was expecting this, Sene said.
Since the start of the flight of Cuban players
more than a decade ago, there hasnt been a
departure thats hit baseball as hard as this.

Jackson hired to work with him, such as


Rambis and Jim Cleamons. Jackson, who
won an NBA-record 11 championships as a
coach, also told Fisher he may not have mentored him as well as he could have.
There wasnt really a consensus in our
staff. We decided we need to have really good
consensus in the working staff, interchanging of ideas and communication, Jackson
said.
The Knicks went 17-65 last season but
upgraded their roster during the summer with
the drafting of Kristaps Porzingis and the
signing of veterans Arron Afflalo and Robin
Lopez.
Fisher then got off to an embarrassing
start this season during training camp. He
was involved in a fight with Memphis
Grizzlies forward and former teammate Matt
Barnes when he was at the home of Barnes
estranged wife in California.
No ones happy about how that happened
and what came out of that, Jackson said.
That was embarrassing for us and for Derek,
but that had no nothing to do with whats
happened here today.

Thanks to Miller, GM John Elway earned a third Lombardi
Trophy for team owner Pat Bowlen to go with the two he won
as his quarterback in the 1990s. Bowlen is battling
Alzheimers and didnt make the trip to Super Bowl 50.
Well take that trophy over to Pat this week and let him
cherish it, Elway said.

Miller should be leading the way.
Then the players will take their final physicals and head into
an offseason that includes trip to the White House where receiver Demaryius Thomas gets to personally thank the president
for commuting his mothers prison sentence.
Everyones expecting a send-off for Peyton Manning, and
Millers Super Bowl co-stars Danny Trevathan and Malik
Jackson are sure to draw high interest in free agency.
Miller is also set to become an unrestricted free agent, but
Elway will use the franchise tag on him if he has to, guaranteeing Miller close to $15 million next season.
In both sides sights, however, are the $100 million-plus
megadeals of J.J. Watt and Justin Houston that will serve as
benchmarks for negotiations on a long-term contract for
Miller.
Miller, who overcame a drug suspension and torn knee ligament in 2013, was the very first draft pick by Elway, who calls
him the best player on the planet.
He wins the football game for us, Elway said in the jubilant
locker room Sunday night.
Theres no way, hell get away from Denver, either.
No. I dont think so, Elway said. You never know, but we
dont want him to (leave). We want Von to stay in Denver and
were going to do everything we can to work it out.
Millers mind isnt on money just yet. Its the nonfinancial
fruits of success that hes soaking all in.
The Super Bowl MVP is special, but the Super Bowl ring is

green cleats hanging from a power or telephone line, and a


peace sign emoji. It was his way of saying goodbye from
football, a decision that his agent Doug Hendrickson confirmed to the Associated Press on Monday saying Lynch
intends to retire.
The mercurial running back who enjoyed avoiding media
attention away from the field as much as he thrived under the
spotlight with the ball in his hands is stepping away just
before his 30th birthday.
Since Ive been here hes been the heart and soul, the
engine of our offense. A vocal leader. A great influence and
one of the best teammates Ive ever had, Seattle wide
receiver Doug Baldwin said last month of Lynch. I cant say
enough about him.
His final season was an injury-filled disappointment.
There were no Beast Mode runs in his final season that will
forever be in his highlight loop or the image of Lynch leaping into the end zone backward as he did to cap a few great
runs in his career. He was a spectator as much as anything,
playing in just seven regular season games and one playoff
game as injuries were finally a factor in his ability to play.
But as much credit as coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider deserve for what Seattle has become as
a perennial power in the NFC, Lynch deserves his share for
the demeanor he provided the Seahawks. The moment Lynch
arrived, Seattle transformed from being finesse to power. He

teams annual January camp in Southern California, but coach
Jurgen Klinsmann used the camp to prepare two age levels of
American soccer for critical matches on March 25 and 29.
The under-23 team faces Colombia in a two-leg playoff
for the final spot in the 2016 Olympics, while the senior
team has two games against Guatemala in the semifinal
round of regional qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.
Klinsmann invited nine under-23 players, including
Morris, to the StubHub Center with an eye on reaching the
tournament in Rio de Janeiro after missing out on the 2012

became the face of the franchise without mounting a campaign to do so. The violence and power with which he ran
was Lynchs platform.
Lynch will step aside after nine seasons in the league. Six
of those came in Seattle, where he played in the postseason
five times. Hes second all-time in Seattle history in rushing
touchdowns and fourth in yards rushing. He tied for the NFL
lead in rushing touchdowns in 2013 and 2014 and is No. 8
all-time in total yards rushing during the postseason. He was
an All-Pro, a Pro Bowl selection and perhaps the most
revered Seahawks player in the opinion of their fans.
Along with what Lynch provided on the field came his
peculiarities when he wasnt carrying the ball. His contract
disputes. His avoidance of the media. His memorable performances during two Super Bowl weeks that became as
much of a topic as the game itself. And this season, ruling
himself out of Seattles NFC wild-card game at Minnesota
just minutes before the team left for the airport.
There was almost certainly going to be a separation
between Lynch and the Seahawks after the 2015 season
because of financial and evolutionary reasons. Seattle was
always going to become Russell Wilsons team moving forward the nature of a quarterback with a long-term contract
agreement and Wilsons performance this season showed
the evolution was in process.
But Lynchs final season should not diminish his meaning
to what Seattle has become.
Hes a guy thats been a great leader in terms of his physical nature on the football field and his approach to the
game. He has a cool, calming presence out there, Wilson
said at the end of the season. Hes one of the greatest running backs to play.
London Games. The German has long stressed the need for
high-level competitive games to advance the programs
overall development.
This has been very good preparation for the matches coming up, said Jerome Kiesewetter, a German-born forward
with an American father. Its a good chance to work on our
timing and also our teamwork. Its very important to qualify
for the Olympics, and we want the best shot that we can get.
With the senior men focused on this summers Centennial
Copa America and World Cup qualifying before the 2018
tournament in Russia, the Olympics provide an invaluable
chance for the younger American players to compete
together in meaningful games over the next two years.
With that in mind, Klinsmann gave the youngsters a
chance to develop chemistry and work alongside established names from Major League Soccer, including Altidore,
Michael Bradley and Gyasi Zardes.

Manziels ex says she lost Shiffrin returns to slopes next week


some hearing in attack
By Pat Graham

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DALLAS Johnny Manziels ex-girlfriend said in an affidavit the Cleveland Browns quarterback hit her so hard during
a late-night confrontation she lost hearing in one ear.
Colleen Crowleys affidavit, published online Monday,
says Manziel dragged her into a car last month after she tried
to get away from him. Crowley accused
Manziel of striking her in her left ear.
Crowley detailed the alleged attack as
part of proceedings to obtain a protective
order against Manziel, who is under criminal investigation on allegations of domestic violence.
Manziel, a Heisman Trophy winner
whose professional career has been marred
by headlines about his drinking and other
Johnny Manziel personal issues, is expected to be cut by
the Browns next month.
In the affidavit, first published by TV station KXAS,
Crowley said she and Manziel had a confrontation in his hotel
room around 1:45 a.m. Jan. 30. Crowley accused Manziel of
throwing her onto his bed after the two discussed him being
with a girl who had caused us problems in the past.
Crowley said she tried to leave, but he restrained her and led
her downstairs to the valet, where he directed her to his car.
She said the valet disregarded her pleas for help.
Crowley and Manziel eventually made it to her vehicle in
front of a Dallas bar, her affidavit says. Manziel allegedly got
into the drivers seat of her car and started to back out of the
spot. She said she opened her door and jumped out, trying to
hide.
She accused him of chasing her down, throwing her back
into the car and hitting her left ear.
Fearful for my life, I hit (Manziel) several times, hoping I
could back out of the car, she said in the affidavit, adding
Manziel threw me off of him and I hit my head on the car window and I fell into the passenger floorboard.
Police have said they drove to Fort Worth, where they continued arguing before Manziel fled on foot.
Manziels attorney, Bradley Beckworth, did not return a
phone message Monday. Crowleys attorney, Kathy Kinser,
declined to comment.
Crowley spoke to Dallas police on Friday, and shortly afterward, authorities announced they were investigating a domestic violence complaint against Manziel.

Two months ago, Mikaela Shiffrin was just hoping to be


back on skis before the snow melted.
A week from now, she will return to World Cup racing on a
knee that healed much faster than even she anticipated.
The Olympic and world slalom champion announced she will
compete next Monday in Crans-Montana, Switzerland, for the
first time since tearing a ligament in her
right knee in December. She said Monday
on her Facebook page: See ya in a week!
Originally, the American racer was targeting a March return for the World Cup
finals in St. Moritz, Switzerland if she
could get back this season at all.
Im a racer at heart, Shiffrin said
through ski sponsor Atomic. I belong in
Mikaela Shiffrin the starting gate.
With only three slalom races left
along with a parallel event this month in Stockholm that
counts in the slalom standings the three-time defending
champion still has a slim mathematical chance to retain her
crown in the discipline. She trails slalom leader Frida
Hansdotter of Sweden by 305 points.
Shiffrin won two slaloms this season both in Aspen,
Colorado, and both by big margins before a training mishap
in Sweden two months ago interrupted her season. Her right ski
slipped during a giant slalom practice run and then her knee
buckled before hitting some grippy snow that caused her to
hyperextend her knee and skid into the protective netting. She
suffered a torn medial collateral ligament and bone bruise.
I never thought that I would have an injury because I have
always worked as hard as I can to prevent injuries, said Shiffrin,
who is from Eagle-Vail, Colorado. I rarely fall when Im skiing.
If Im scared in a situation, training or racing, I would tend to
slow myself down before taking the risks and crash hard.
I am lucky that I hurt two of the things in my knee that can
heal on their own really well. If I had hurt my ACL or meniscus
and needed surgery, I think this would have been a lot more difficult for me. But I have thought about my knee like a big cut
on my leg or something.
Shiffrin made her speed debut in Lake Louise, Alberta, this
season and finished 15th during a super-G race won by teammate Lindsey Vonn. Before her injury, Shiffrin and Vonn were
considered the top contenders for the overall title, especially
with Tina Maze taking the season off and defending champ
Anna Fenninger sidelined with a knee injury.
Now, it appears to be a contest between Vonn and Lara Gut.

Bility: 26 African nations wont support Salman in FIFA vote


By Jonathan Paye-Layleh
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MONROVIA, Liberia The outspoken head of the


Liberia Football Association says at least 26 African countries will defy their confederation and not vote for Sheikh
Salman of Bahrain in the FIFA presidential election.
Salman, the Asian Football Confederation president, was
publicly endorsed by the Confederation of African Football
on Friday, a major boost to his election chances. CAF urged
its 54 member countries to vote for the Bahraini royal.
But Liberia FA President Musa Bility, who failed an

integrity check to stand in the Feb. 26 election, says he has


spoken to representatives of nearly half of CAFs members,
and they wont back Salman.
Bility says Liberia will vote for Prince Ali of Jordan to
succeed Sepp Blatter. Meanwhile, six Central European federations confirmed their support for Gianni Infantino.
Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Liechtenstein,
Poland, and Slovakia will vote for the UEFA secretary general, according to Austria federation president Leo Windtner.
Our candidate is Gianni Infantino. Thats obvious. We
discussed it extensively today, Windtner said following an
annual meeting of the six federations.

While away, Shiffrin said she watched every mens and
womens World Cup race.
I would pretend that I was skiing it and figure out how I
might ski it differently than the other girls, said Shiffrin,
who turns 21 next month.
Shiffrin returned to snow in late January with some easy
drills. Steadily, she ramped up her training and recently went
through gates.

Olympic cyclist Evie Stevens will
attempt to break the world hour
record later this month when she
takes to the recently renovated
velodrome at the U.S. Olympic
training center.
The distance traveled in an hour
is one of the most hallowed challenges in cycling. But only in the

thought it was clearly a catch.


Broadcasters Jim Nantz and Phil
Simms thought it was a catch. The
Carolina coaching staff was fairly
certain it was a catch because head
coach Ron Rivera threw the challenge ag. Im pretty sure most of
the world watching thought it was a

there, receiver Ted Ginn Jr. was
making a case for MVP honors, but
in the end, he is what 49ers fans
thought he was. Jonathan Stewart
and Mike Tolbert in the backeld
were no great shakes either and that
left everything on the arm and legs
of Newton. The Broncos took away
his favorite target in tight end Greg
Olson and that didnt leave Newton
with many options. Newton and
the Panthers need a talent upgrade if
they want to win a Super Bowl, a
17-2 season not withstanding.
Legacy questions answered. Can
we stop the debate about whether or
not Peyton Manning is an all-time
NFL great? I think not only winning a second title, and becoming
the rst player to win one with two
different teams, combined with the
fact it was his 200th career win,
should all but answer any questions
about where he belongs in the
annals of the NFL.
Critics will still hold on to the
fact he played a horrible game and
it was the Broncos defense that
handed Manning the Lombardi
Trophy, but for all those years of
having to carry the load, its OK for
him to go along for the ride one
time on his way out.
Whats in a name? NFL ofcials,
once again, muddled the denition
of what a catch in the NFL is with
the horrible replay call in the rst
quarter. Carolinas Jerricho
Cotchery made a bobbling rstquarter that was initially ruled
incomplete.
But after watching the CBS
replay several times, it was clear
Cotchery made the catch, as you
never see the ball hit the ground. I

Senator scrutinizes pharma links on pain panel


By Matthew Perrone
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON A high-ranking Senate


Democrat is scrutinizing links between
pharmaceutical companies and government
advisers who recently criticized efforts to
reduce painkiller prescribing.
Sen. Ron Wyden says he has a number of
concerns about how panelists were selected and screened for an advisory panel on
pain issues that includes government
experts, outside academics and patient
advocates. Wydens inquiry follows a recent
Associated Press story that found nearly a
third of panelists at a December meeting of
the
Interagency
Pain
Research
Coordinating Committee had apparent
financial ties to painkiller manufacturers,
including the maker of OxyContin.
These financial and professional relationships raise serious concerns about the
objectivity of the panels members that
deserve additional review, Wyden writes in
a letter Monday to the head of the
Department of Health and Human Services.
A spokeswoman for the federal agency
said in a statement: HHS has received the
letter and will respond directly to the
Senator.
The pain panel attracted attention late
last year after several members bashed a federal plan to recommend doctors reduce their
prescribing of painkillers for chronic pain.
The draft guidelines by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention are intended to curb deadly overdoses tied to powerful
but highly-addictive opioid drugs, including Percocet and Vicodin. Opioid
painkillers and heroin which is also part
of the opioid family caused 28,650 fatal
overdoses in 2014, the highest number ever
in the U.S.
Since coming under criticism from the
panel, the CDC has re-opened its guidelines
to additional public comment and review.
In his letter, Wyden states that the law
creating the federal pain panel makes no
provision that representatives of the pharmaceutical industry are included on the
panel.
Yet several non-federal members
through their organizations or directly have received funding from painkiller makers, Wyden notes.

The Interagency Pain Research Coordinating Committee attracted attention late last year after several members bashed a federal plan to
recommend doctors reduce their prescribing of painkillers for chronic pain.
As previously reported by the Associated
Press, two panelists work for the Center for
Practical Bioethics, a Kansas City group
which receives funding from multiple drugmakers, including OxyContin-maker Purdue
Pharma, which donated $100,000 in 2013.
One panelist holds a chair at the center created by a $1. 5-million donation from
Purdue Pharma. The other has received more
than $8,660 in speaking fees, meals, travel
accommodations and other payments from
pain drugmakers.
I am concerned that this single organization with significant ties to a major opioid
manufacturer had two paid staff sitting as
committee members at the same time,
Wyden writes.
A third member of the panel is a director
with the U.S. Pain Foundation, a nonprofit
that receives most of its funding from drugmakers, including a $104,800 donation
from Purdue Pharma in 2014, according to
IRS Records cited by Wyden.
Two other panelists are connected to the
American Chronic Pain Association, another nonprofit that receives substantial fund-

ing from drugmakers, including Pfizer Inc.,


AstraZeneca Plc, Teva Pharmaceuticals
Industries Ltd. and AbbVie Inc.
The legislation creating the panel
which helps coordinate federal pain policies was championed for years by drugmakers, who lobbied Congress to increase
investments in treating and researching
pain. Eventually, legislation creating the
group was folded into the Affordable Care
Act of 2010, President Obamas signature
health care overhaul.

Wyden, who is the highest-ranking


Democrat on the Senate Finance
Committee, asks HHS officials to submit
their policies for selecting panel members
and vetting their potential conflicts of
interest.
In a separate letter, also sent Monday, the
Oregon lawmaker gave his endorsement to
the CDCs painkiller guidelines, which recommend primary care doctors prioritize
non-opioid approaches to treating chronic
pain.

MULLIN
Continued from page 1
household hazardous waste such as batteries, paint, prescription medication, consumer electronics and more.
The impetus for [Assembly Bill 45] was
the paltry participation rate in California
when it comes to household hazardous
waste. Only 7 percent of Californians property dispose of household hazardous waste,
only 7 percent. So Ive embarked on this
effort to try and come up with a better solution for the state of California that encourages more participation and makes the disposal of household hazardous waste more
convenient, said Mullin, D-South San
Francisco.
AB 45 would require the California
Department of Resources Recycling and
Recovery, CalRecycle, to work with stakeholders and adopt one or more model ordinances highlighting best practices for the
collection of hazardous waste. As a diverse
state comprised of communities with varying characteristics, the bill would not
require individual jurisdictions to adopt the
model ordinance. Instead, agencies could
chose whether to follow or amend
CalRecycles rules when considering how to
encourage more residents to properly dispose of these everyday household products.
Seeking to divert unused medications,
dead batteries, outdated computers, leftover glue, spare household cleaners, garden chemicals and old TVs from ending up
in the wrong place, Mullin said its time

and services to eligible needy families.

to make a change.
I think it really comes down to convenience or a lack thereof, and a lack of awareness on how to properly dispose of household hazardous waste, Mullin said. People
I think are largely just throwing their batteries away. Theres got to be a way of using
the existing infrastructure to break some of
the barriers down and make it more convenient.
Examples of programs include door-todoor pickups, mobile collection, locallysponsored drop-off sites and educating consumers with information on how they
should dispose of various types of household waste, according to the bill.
Opponents contend local governments
are already required to manage and report on
their programs overseeing the disposal of
household hazardous waste. The California
State Association of Counties, CSAC,
raised concerns about the bill including
classifying home-generated pharmaceutical
waste, such as prescription drugs, under the
definition of hazardous waste. CSAC argues
these materials often must be treated differently than other materials, such as not
being left for curbside pickups, and is concerned the bill would prevent disposal of
these unused drugs without a comprehensive
plan in place.

Industry participation
One apparent sticking point for CSAC
and Mullin is the level of industry participation. CSAC argues manufacturers should be
more invested in the collection and disposal of the materials they produce, but that
Mullins bill lacks detail as to how.
Mullin said the industry has made a sigBrowns proposal to expand Medi-Cal to
undocumented children will also transition
about 3,000 children in the county from its
Healthy Kids program to Medi-Cal although
its financial impact to the county is uncertain, according to Maltbies report.
There is also no new funding for local
child support agencies, which will cause the
county to request a drawdown from a federal

nificant step having vowed to contribute $5


million toward a nonprofit that must be
established as part of this bill and would
divvy out grant funds.
We for the first time, have been able to
get a commitment from industry folks, in
the biotech sector for example, to put up
money that would be accessible by local
governments to help pay for the costs of
implementing the programs, Mullin said.
What Im looking for is a public-private
partnership to establish a better way to deal
with household hazardous waste in the state
of California. Because everybody pretty
much has the same end goal to get this
stuff out of the waste stream.
The bill is contingent upon a nonprofit
being created that could have a minimum of
$5 million to allocate to local governments
over a five-year period. Mullins bill does
not explicitly outline factors CalRecycle
should use to determine whether such a nonprofit exists a factor CSAC argues is too
vague.
But after receiving a letter from trade
groups such as the Advanced Medical
Technology Association, Biotechnology
Industry
Organization,
Consumer
Healthcare Products Association and
Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers
of America, Mullin said hes confident in
their commitment.
According to an analysis of the bill referencing the letter, the industry representatives supported AB 45 as it will ensure a
strong commitment by local government to
a comprehensive statewide approach to disposal of [household hazardous waste], we
will facilitate the establishment and funding of an appropriate nonprofit entity dediparticipation fund to balance the budget.
When it comes to housing, Browns proposed budget does not substantially
increase the states role in expanding access
to affordable housing, according to
Maltbies report.
The countys Probation Department will
have its funding decreased by about
$400,000 from the Community Corrections
Performance Incentive Grant Program. The
grant is given based on prison revocation
rates.
Related to child care, Brown proposes a
trailer bill that will require the state
Department of Education to develop a plan
to convert all contracted programs and funding into vouchers over the next five years.
Currently, the department directly administers contracts with providers for about onethird of the states child care funding and the
other two-thirds is provided through vouchers that families use for providers they
choose.
This proposal could be destabilizing,
according to Maltbies report.

cated to providing education to California
consumers about the appropriate handling
and disposal of our industries products.
Instead, the CSAC urges manufacturers be
included in the end-of-life management for
the products they produce.
The government association promotes a
product stewardship models as it incentivizes the industries that profit from these
products to have a significant stake in their
proper management and disposal, according to a CSAC letter sent to the Assembly.

Next steps
Able to push the bill through the
Assembly, it is set to be heard in the Senate
Committee on Environmental Quality.
Mullin said he believes theres some misinformation as to how the bill would work
and his office has been trying to make it
clear that this would not be a heavy-handed
statewide mandate. He emphasized having
local governments on board with new
garbage policies is key.
As a diverse state with nearly 40 million
residents, 58 counties and varied geography, Mullin noted a one-size-fits-all
approach isnt going to cut it. Instead, his
bill would allow flexibility for local governments to learn from best practices and
promote industry participation, Mullin
said.
I want to move this conversation in a
collaborative way and in a way that ensures
the state of California is finally doing
something meaningful, Mullin said.
Weve got industry making hard financial
commitments of real dollars to partner and
offset local governments costs. So I would
argue thats great progress.
A preliminary review by the county
Office of Education indicates that the proposal includes no new funding and the
restructured funding would serve fewer children and potentially destabilize the countys centers serving special populations
such as teen mothers, homeless families and
children with special needs, according to
Maltbies report.
Maltbie concludes his report by restating
the possible impacts to the county budget if
the Managed Care Organization tax is not
extended. The tax supports administrative
funding for the states Coordinated Care
Initiative.
The countys memorandum of understanding with the states In-Home Supportive
Services is tied to the continuation of the
Coordinated Care Initiative.
If it ceases, services provided to seniors
in the county could be greatly reduced.

Health briefs
New York moves to stop
gay conversion therapy for youths
NEW YORK New York is taking steps to stop therapists from trying to change young peoples sexual orientation, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Saturday, joining a
number of states that have acted against whats known as
gay conversion therapy.
The Democratic governors move, announced Saturday,
comes as gay rights advocates have campaigned state by
state with mixed results to try to ban a practice that major
mental health organizations have repudiated.
Using executive power in a state where legislative bids to
ban the therapy have stalled, Cuomo announced planned
regulations that would bar insurance coverage for the therapy for minors and prohibit mental health facilities under
state Office of Mental Health jurisdiction from offering it to
minors.
Conversion therapy is a hateful and fundamentally
flawed practice that punishes people for simply being
who they are, Cuomo said in a statement.

Most of the $1.8 billion in emergency funding would go to health officials for such things as improving laboratory testing
capacity, education and establishing rapid response teams. About $250 million of assistance would be directed specifically
to Puerto Rico though extra Medicaid funding for health services, and $200 million would go toward research and
commercialization of new vaccines and diagnostic tests.

Barack Obama asking Congress for


emergency funding to combat Zika
By Kevin Freking
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON President Barack


Obama is asking Congress for more
than $1.8 billion in emergency funding to fight the Zika virus and the mosquitoes that spread it here and abroad,
but says there shouldnt be a panic on
this.
The virus is spreading rapidly
through Latin America. While most
people experience either mild or no
symptoms, Zika is suspected of causing a devastating birth defect
babies born with abnormally small
heads and pregnant Americans are
urged to avoid travel to affected areas.
U.S. health officials say the money
is critical for research into the birth
defect known as microcephaly. They
also want to speed development of a
vaccine and better diagnostic tests,
and expand mosquito control programs. Some of the money would also
aid Zika-stricken countries and territories.
What we now know is that there
appears to be some significant risk for
pregnant women and women who are
thinking about having a baby, Obama
said in an interview aired Monday on
CBS This Morning.
And while experts dont expect large
outbreaks in the continental U.S., the
emergency funding also would help
them prepare for any local transmis-

The administration is seeking the Zika
money separately from the regular
budget for the next fiscal year, which
Obama will submit to Congress on
Tuesday.
For the average American, this is
not something that will change our
day-to-day life, Dr. Anne Schuchat of
the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention told reporters at a White
House briefing. Our focus is on protecting pregnant women and trying to
control the mosquito.
Most of the money would go to
health officials for such things as
improving laboratory testing capacity, education and establishing rapid

of assistance would be directed specifically to Puerto Rico though extra
Medicaid funding for health services,
and $200 million would go toward

The remainder, about $335 million
would go to the U. S. Agency for
International Development to help
affected countries provide training to
health workers, stimulate private sec-

tor research and help pregnant women


gain access to repellant to protect
against mosquitoes.
Also Monday, the CDC said its emergency operations center, a command
center that has been coordinating the
Zika response, was being put on its
highest level of alert.
The
Pan
American
Health
Organization reports 26 countries and
territories in South and Central
America and the Caribbean with local
Zika transmission. To date, there has
been no transmission of the Zika virus
by mosquitoes within the U.S., but
some American travelers 50 with
laboratory-confirmed cases between
December and last week have
returned home with the infection.
One case in Texas is believed to have
been transmitted through sex, and last
week officials in Brazil, hard-hit by
Zika, reported finding the virus in saliva and urine.
That doesnt necessarily mean Zika
can spread through those body fluids,
said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the
National Institute of Allergy and
Infectious Disease. Fauci said the main
focus is on mosquitoes.

PITTSBURGH A fourth transplant patient who contracted a fungal infection during a mold outbreak at a western Pennsylvania hospital has died, officials said Sunday.
The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center confirmed
the death of Che DuVall, a 70-year-old retired glass cutter
who was diagnosed with the infection in September, a
month after undergoing a double lung transplant.
We extend our deepest sympathies to his family, as well
as to our doctors and nurses who have worked with great
compassion and skill to care for him, UPMC spokeswoman Allison Hydzik said in a statement. We again want
to reassure our patients that we have taken every possible
precaution to make our hospitals as safe as is humanly possible and have followed all recommendations made by federal and state regulators.

political activism during one of the
most-watched events of the year.
The halftime show seen by an

SCHOOL
Continued from page 1
back for further review during the next
board meeting Thursday, Feb. 18.
Board President Ed Coady said it is
important to consider all perspectives
on a matter as sensitive as school calendars before making any decision.
The thing that I and other board
members have to keep in mind is that
the calendar is an ongoing dialogue,
he said. It might change slightly
from year to year, but it is a process we
are always trying to make better.
Coady voted along with Vice
President Chelsea Bonini and Trustee
Audrey Ng to delay a decision on the
calendar, in favor of gathering more
information regarding how the class
schedule is developed.
District officials and representatives
from the teachers union agreed in 2014
to settle on a calendar which aligned
vacations with the San Mateo Union
High School District, with an eye
toward making it easier for families
with students in both districts to plan
vacations and work schedules.
Parents and members of the school
community who signed the petition on
change.org said they believe the current calendar, which is a modified version of the year-round class schedule,

should be continued into the future.


At the time this article was published, 367 people had signed a petition advocating to keep the existing
schedule.
Year-round calendars enhance lesson
retention, reduce student and teacher
burnout and offer the ideal amount of
vacation throughout the year, along
with other advantages, according to
the petition.
District parent Adam Bittle said in an
email he agreed with that perspective,
as work obligations are easier for him
to weave into the current calendar, and
he believes his son retains more of his
lessons when coming back from shorter school vacations.
Ultimately though, he said he
believes the perspective of all school
community members should all be
considered when developing the
school calendar.
I think parents, teachers and administrators should all be included in the
process for something such as the
school calendar that has an effect on
everyone to some degree, he said.
When establishing the existing calendar, district officials held an extensive public outreach process which
gathered feedback from more than
1,000 parents and members of the
school community.
Coady said he believes some may
feel left out of the current school calendar development process, because a

similar public outreach initiative was


not held.
Members of our community wish
we could have had more outreach or discussion as we did when we came up
with the uniform calendar, said
Coady. It wasnt part of the plan
because it is something the district
works out with teachers every year.
In light of the substantial amount of
feedback community members have
offered to district officials on the calendar, Coady said he encouraged public
participation in dialogue on district
matters.
The great thing about our district is
that there is a lot of involvement, he
said.
For his part though, Coady said he
believed there is tremendous value in
aligning the elementary and high
school district calendars.
I have heard there is a correlation
between dates when our calendars dont
align and increases in absenteeism,
he said.
When considering issues such as
school calendars, Coady said developing a class schedule which offers the
greatest opportunity for a quality education to all district students is his
highest priority.
Im in favor of finding how we can
have the best calendar that will allow
students to attend the most days with
the greatest chance of ensuring academic success, he said.

Luckily, the victims were not seriously injured. The robbers were only interested in stealing property as they quickly got into their car, described as a black
Crown Victoria with tinted windows,
and fled, Zuno said.
Its clear the suspects were intentionally trying to avoid detection by removing the license plates from their vehicle, Zuno said.
With minimal description to go on,
Zuno said detectives are actively contacting other agencies to see if there are
any similar cases.
Drivers are reminded to be cautious
and Zuno offered safety tips to anyone

who finds themselves being tailgated or


concerned about letting a faster driver
pass.
If a car is tailgating you, dont pull
over and stop, make them go around
you. If you find yourself in a position
where you want to pull over, do it somewhere you feel safe, where theres others
around. And if you find yourself in a bad
situation, dont roll down your window.
Try to get away safely and obviously, if
something like this happens, report it
right away, Zuno said.
