Burlingame condo proposal faces opposition


Neighbors, officials concerned project uncharacteristic with neighborhood
By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Two Burlingame homes are set


to be leveled to make way for the
construction of a new five-story
condominium project, under the
approval of city officials who will
soon consider the development.

The 10-unit project, proposed


for construction on two plots of
land spanning neighboring lots at
1491 and 1493 Oak Grove Ave.,
near the intersection of El Camino
Real, will go before the
Burlingame
Planning
Commission during a meeting
Monday, Aug. 22.

The 4,385-square-foot building


proposed to be 55-feet tall and
hold a mix of units spanning
between one and three bedrooms
has taken on previous criticism
from residents and city officials
due to concerns regarding the size
of the project and perceived
incompatibility with the sur-

rounding neighborhood, as well


as potential parking and traffic
congestion, among other issues,
according to a city report.
Some residents who live nearby
have complained during previous
Planning Commission meetings
that the project could be considered an eyesore and it appears too

large and is incongruous to its surroundings.


The architectural style of the
building is very boxy and does not
blend well with the neighborhood
which is located at the very edge
of the downtown specific plan,

Drainage overflow: Whos to pay? Plans for South City


City at odds with residents over $10,500 cost to fix ongoing problem
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Overflow from a drainage swale on a


private cul-de-sac in San Carlos is
known to damage property during
heavy storms but a deal reached with
the city and residents to fix the problem has apparently fell apart.
A resident on Primrose Lane brought
the problem to the citys attention way
back in 2011 and requested that the
city repair the drainage swale.
Erosion has caused the swale to tilt
slightly toward the property at 11
Primrose Lane, owned by John

Bisordi, which contributes to overflows, according to a staff report by


Public Works Director Jay Walter.
The residents on Primrose agreed to
pay for half the cost to fix about 97
feet of drainage swale, about $10,500,
back in 2012, according to Walters
report.
The city, however, asked that the
money be paid for the fix prior to the
start of work in 2013 but Bisordi never
signed an agreement and failed to correspond with the city until this past
December when residents notified the
City Council that the city should pay
for the work.

Bisordi told the Daily Journal that


although the cul-de-sac is private, that
the water is public since run-off originates from Lyndhurst Avenue, above
Primrose Lane.
Bisordi and his neighbors have
asked the city to either relocate the
drainage swale, repair it at the citys
cost or put in underground.
Cost to underground the system,
however, is estimated to cost
$330, 000, according to Walters
report.

Hamilton was a hit: Now for Broderick

amilton, the musical that


recently won 11 Tony Awards,
is based on Americas most
famous duel, the one between Alexander
Hamilton and Aaron Burr. Is Broadway ready
for a sequel entitled Broderick?
Probably not, but there are interesting
parallels between the Hamilton-Burr duel of
1804 and the face-off in 1859 in which U.S.
Senator David Broderick was killed by former Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court
David Terry. While Hamilton-Burr is
Americas most famous duel, the BroderickTerry confrontation, which took place just
south of San Mateo Countys line with San
Francisco, is certainly Californias most
famous. In both, the good guy was killed.
Senator Brodericks death turned him
into a martyr for the anti-slavery movement, according to The Battle for Freedom
in California. The publication by the
National Park Service said the duel demonstrated the nations larger and increasingly
violent divisions and pushed the country
further towards a civil war.
Broderick, son of an Irish stonecutter who
came to America to work on the nations
new Capitol, was against the expansion of
slavery. Terry, who was born in the South,
defended it. There was, though, more to the
duel than politics. Honor, as in the
Hamilton-Burr meeting, was at stake.
According to historians, Terry said in public
that Broderick was a dupe of ex-slave and
leading abolitionist Frederick Douglass.
Broderick countered with scurrilous
insults, according to David Lavenders

sure what those insults were, but they were
offensive enough that Terry challenged

Crime measure triggers 52,000 fewer arrests


By Don Thompson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO A 2014
California voter-approved initiative that reduced penalties for certain drug and property crimes has
led to the lowest arrest rate in state
history as police frequently
ignore those illegal activities,
experts say.
Proposition 47 lowered criminal sentences by reducing them
from felonies that can bring long
prison sentences to misdemeanors
that instead bring up to a year in
jail.
Recent state Department of
Justice statistics show the number
of felony arrests plummeted 28.5
percent last year, while misdemeanor arrests rose about 9 percent over 2014. That resulted in
52,000 fewer arrests overall and

the lowest arrest rate since recordkeeping began in 1960.


Its really driven by changes in
drug and property arrests, said
Public Policy Institute of
California researcher Magnus
Lofstrom, who studies the issue. I
think its quite clear that Prop. 47
is the major contributor to the
changes weve seen.
Last years decline in arrests,
with the fewest felony arrests
since 1969, is part of a long-term
decline dating to the 1980s that
has been spurred by the law as well
as crowded jails and fewer police,
Lofstrom said.
Its too soon to say whether the
changes are helping spur rising
crime rates, though Lofstrom and
other researchers are watching the
relationship closely.
Law enforcement officials said
drug offenders may now common-

ly be cited and released, or ignored


because there may be little penalty
if they are arrested. There were
about 22,000 fewer drug arrests
last year.
The de facto decriminalization
of drugs may have an impact, said
Kern County Sheriff Donny
Youngblood, president of the
California
State
Sheriffs
Association. We do know that
theres a lot less arrests being
made, which means there are a lot
more people on the streets using
drugs.
Multiple courts reported an
increase in failures to appear for
misdemeanor arraignments since
Proposition 47 passed, the
Judicial Council of California
found in a survey of 40 of the
states 58 county superior courts.
If people arent showing up in
court, if theyre not going to go to

drug court, were going to see what


were seeing, which is increased
crime rates in our communities,
said Ventura Police Chief Ken
Corney,
president
of
the
California
Police
Chiefs
Association.
State Department of Justice figures show violent crime jumped 10
percent last year over 2014.
Property crimes also increased,
including a nearly 12 percent
increase in shoplifting and nearly
11 percent increase in thefts, two
crimes affected by Proposition
47.
But participation in drug courts
has rebounded as counties adapted
to Proposition 47 by including it
in sentences for those charged
with misdemeanors or drug-related
crimes such as stealing to support
their addictions, said Santa Clara
County Judge Stephen Manley.

I think its been a fairly dramatic response to getting treatment to


the people that need it the most,
said Manley, president of the
California Association of Drug
Court Professionals.
Mel Sargent, 66, and Caroline
Sargent, 54, even married on the
day they graduated from an 11month drug court program in
March. Sacramento County probation officers bought them wedding
rings.
Before it was always the war
against drugs, Sargent said. We
got to see the other side, the more
human side of the probation
department and the judiciary.
The initiative has also led to
fewer plea bargains, probably
because suspects have less incentive to accept plea deals without

When schools threatened, learning time lost


By Kantele Franko
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

COLUMBUS, Ohio The prosecutor calls it bomb week, his


shorthand for eight school threats
many written in school bathrooms or on notes over a few
days in May that set off evacuations and investigations, parental
panic, and the rumor mill of students linked by cellphones and
social media in his Ohio county.
Track athletes missed an end-ofseason competition, and some
high schoolers started carrying
their car keys with them instead of
leaving them in lockers, just in
case, Warren County prosecutor
David Fornshell said. One mother
complained that a girl who uses an
insulin pump had taken it off for
gym class and had to evacuate
without it.
Nobody who sends their kids to
school should have to go through
that kind of stress and that type of
disruption, Fornshell said.

Such violent or disruptive


threats are increasing nationwide,
according to police, school
employees, security consultants
and others, blamed sometimes on
local students and sometimes on
outsiders seeking to cause disruptions or a big emergency
response.

Tracking
State and local agencies dont
track the threats, meaning theres
no formal accounting of the collective costs. The disruptions typically arent long enough to merit
makeup classes, but the learning
time lost to evacuations and cancellations adds up, as do the hours
police spend responding and
investigating.
Less measurable but still significant are the ways threats can dent
staff and students sense of security even when theyre false alarms,
as they almost always are.
Schools are in a really bad
position, said researcher Amy

Klinger, of the nonprofit


Educators
School
Safety
Network. People are going to be
mad if you evacuate; people are
going to be upset if you dont
evacuate.
The number of school bomb
threats the last academic year
alone, based on media reports, was
at least 1,267, roughly twice as
many as in 2012-13, said Klinger,
who also teaches educational
administration at Ohios Ashland
University.
Her group estimates there were
about eight bomb threats per
school day last year, and that
doesnt include other threats of
violence
and
disruption.
Massachusetts had the most in
that tally at 135 bomb threats,
followed by Ohio with 96.
Because administrators and
police cant simply ignore threats
, they grapple with the fallout
while trying to deter copycats.
In Ohio, more than 170 school
threats were reported in the 2015-

16 school year, according to an


Associated Press tally based on
police updates and media coverage. Threats of bombs, shootings
and unspecified violence were
called in, written as notes,
scrawled on walls and shared via
social media and apps. Over 100
Ohio public school districts, or
roughly one in every six districts,
dealt with at least one threat, as
did a handful of private and charter
schools and several college-level
facilities.
Ohio-based consulting firm
National School Safety and
Security Services had flagged the
state as having more school
threats 64 than any other
state in the first half of the previous academic year. The firm said it
studied over 800 threats around the
country in that period, up from
315 in a similar span a year earlier.
At least a couple of the recent
Ohio threats occurred one day in
late May when dozens of threats

were made against schools nationwide as officials investigated


whether it might be a case of
swatting, when hoaxers playing
online games anonymously make
threats online or by phone to trigger big responses from police and
SWAT teams. Some of those
schools evacuated; others didnt.

Email hoax
Months earlier, an email threatening a large-scale jihadi attack
had prompted the Los Angeles
Unified School District to cancel
classes for a day in December,
while school officials in New York
City quickly dismissed a similar
email as a hoax.
Schools where students and visitors entered freely a decade or two
ago now have surveillance cameras, locked doors and special
security procedures. The National
Association of School Resource
Officers estimates the number of

Obama returning from summer vacation ready for busy fall

President Barack Obama is returning from vacation rested and ready


for a busy fall, including pressing
Congress for money to protect
against the Zika virus and fending
off lawmakers attacks over the
administrations $400 million
leverage payment to Iran.
Obama also is expected to campaign doggedly to help elect

Sunday after a

going on a hike

with the first lady.


His first order of business is a
Tuesday trip to Baton Rouge,
Louisiana, to survey damage from
flooding that killed at least 13
people and forced thousands into
shelters.
Obama resisted pressure from
Louisianans and others to interrupt his vacation to tour the ruins
and meet with officials and flood
victims. Republican presidential
candidate Donald Trump filled the
void created by Obamas absence,

touring the ravaged area Friday


with his running mate, Indiana
Gov. Mike Pence, and helping to
unload a supply truck.
Obama planned to spend the rest
of the week in meetings, largely
to prepare for an upcoming, weeklong trip to Asia, his 11th and
likely final visit to the region as
president.
With Congress still on a sevenweek break, Obama and aides
probably will focus on what the
White House can get from lawmak-

ers before they leave town to campaign for re-election. Congress


returns after Labor Day, and the
House and Senate will have just a
month to pass a catch-all spending bill by the Sept. 30 end of the
federal budget year to keep the
government operating.
Lawmakers plan to leave
Washington again at the end of
September, and not return until
after the Nov. 8 elections.

Campaign insists Trump back on track


By Erica Werner
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON After a tumultuous stretch of gaffes and falling


poll numbers for Donald Trump,
top GOP campaign and party officials insisted Sunday that their
presidential nominee is getting
back on track and will catch up
with Democrat Hillary Clinton by
around Labor Day.
Clinton campaign officials dismissed the idea of a changed
Trump as nonsense.
Donald Trump has been disciplined and mature. And I think hes
going to get this thing back on
track, said Reince Priebus, the
Republican National Committee
chairman.
Polls now mostly show Trump
lagging Clinton by 5 percentage
points or more nationally, but
Priebus predicted they will tighten
up and Trump will be ahead as we

move through
September.
Trumps new
campaign manager, Kellyanne
C o n w a y ,
echoed Priebus
optimism, contending that the
Donald Trump candidate just
had the best
week of his campaign, mostly
because hes able to be himself,
the authentic Donald Trump and
the pivot that hes made is on
substance.
Conway, who supported Trump
rival Ted Cruz during the primaries, was named to her post this
past week in a shake-up in which
the campaign chairman, Paul
Manafort, resigned and conservative media firebrand Stephen
Bannon, who led Breitbart News,
took over as campaign chief executive.

A new style was immediately


evident as Trump, in a first, offered
regrets for any remarks that had
caused offense, stuck with his
teleprompter at a series of events,
and paid a visit to flood-ravaged
Louisiana, where he briefly helped
unload a truck of supplies. That
type of one-on-one interaction
with voters is a staple of most
political campaigning, yet something Trump had mostly avoided
in favor of large rallies.
Trump also announced his first
ad buys of the campaign more
evidence of an acceptance of the
traditional campaign elements
most experts believe he will need
in order to have a shot at winning.
He made a direct appeal to AfricanAmerican voters, who strongly
support Clinton, and insisted he
wants the GOP to become their
political home as it was in the era
of Abraham Lincoln.
Trump also met on Saturday with

Toss-up states could


decide Clintons fate
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Hillary Clinton heads


into the fall out front in enough states to
give her at least a tie in the Electoral
College, meaning a victory in any of the
several states now a toss-up would be
enough to push her over the top and into the
White House.
For Donald Trump, the electoral map is as
daunting as it is friendly to Clinton. To win,
he must sweep all of the toss-up battlegrounds and go on to pick off at least one
state where the Democratic nominee now
has a solid lead.
Thats according to an Associated Press
analysis of the map as it stands today, with
78 days until Election Day.
The analysis considers preference
polling, recent electoral history, demo-

graphic trends and campaign priorities such as


advertising, travel and
on-the-ground staff.
It finds that to capture
the 270 electoral votes
needed to win the White
House, Clinton must
merely defend traditionHillary Clinton ally Democratic states
and those where recent
polls show she has large advantages, and
then add just one of the states that The
Associated Press now rates as a toss-up.
Those states include Florida, Iowa, New
Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina and
Ohio.
And that map may be a conservative estimate of Clintons head start over the
Republican nominee.

Hispanic supporters, representatives of a community that has


been wary of the billionaire businessmans proposals to build a
giant wall on the U.S.-Mexico
border and deport the 11 million
people living in this country illegally. Questioned on whether
Trump still intends to deploy a
deportation force to carry that
out, Conway said Sunday: To be
determined.
Conway, whose background is
as a pollster, said the campaign
wants to get away from a focus on
Trumps personality and onto the
Obama administrations record,
and Clinton as a continuation of
what it describes as unpopular
policies such as the Obamas
health care law.
The Hillary people want this to
all be about tone and temperament. We also want to it be about
facts and figures, Conway said.
She said that the campaign

would work more closely with


RNC officials and try to expand
the map of competitive swing
states from seven or eight to 10 or
11. Donald Trump is back in
Hillary Clintons head, Conway
said.
Clintons campaign manager,
Robby Mook, disputed such
claims. Were not seeing a pivot.
Donald Trump himself said this
was not a pivot. He wants to double down on letting Donald Trump
be Donald Trump, Mook said.
Mook kept up his criticism over
Trumps connections with Russia,
arguing that despite the departure
of Manafort amid questions over
his work for a pro-Russia political
party in Ukraine, Trump should
offer an accounting about his own
ties to Russia.
There are real questions being
raised about whether Donald Trump
himself is just a puppet for the
Kremlin in this race, Mook said.

Child suicide bomber kills 51 at wedding party


By Cinar Kiper
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ISTANBUL A child suicide


bomber killed at least 51 people
and wounded nearly 70 others at a
Kurdish wedding party near
Turkeys border with Syria,
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan
said Sunday, decrying the attack as
an apparent attempt by Islamic
State extremists to destabilize the
nation by exploiting ethnic and
religious tensions.
As of now, the preliminary
conclusions by our governors
ofce and the police establishment point to an attack by
Daesh, Erdogan said, using
another common term for IS.
It was clear that Daesh had such
an organization in Gaziantep or
was attempting to make room for
itself in recent times, he said.
The bombing late Saturday in
Gaziantep was the deadliest attack
in Turkey this year.
It comes amid ongoing struggles between the government and
Kurdish militants linked to the

outlawed Kurdistan Workers
Party, known as the PKK, and as
the country is still reeling from
the aftermath of last months
failed coup attempt, which the
government has blamed on U.S.-

based Muslim cleric Fethullah


Gulen and his followers.
Erdogan said immediately after
the Gaziantep attack, which he
blamed on IS, that any strategy
meant to incite the citizens

against each other along ethnic


and religious lines will not work.
Later, addressing the nation
before Istanbuls city hall,
Erdogan said the attacker in
Gaziantep was aged between 12
and 14.
He said 69 people were wounded,
with 17 of them in critical condition.
He again blamed the attack on
the Islamic State, but there was no
immediate claim of responsibility.
The pro-Kurdish political party
HDP condemned the attack on the
wedding, which it said was attended by many of its party members.
It said in a statement that it was
quite signicant that the attack,
which it also blamed on IS, came
hours
after the Kurdistan
Communities Union, a militant
organization that includes the
PKK, announced plans to try to
negotiate to end a three-decade
conict between Kurdish militants
and the Turkish government.
This attack targets those determined and persistent in peace, res-

olution, and those struggling for


democracy, equality, freedom and
justice, the HDP said. The attack
was planned to disable the spread
of peace and success of possible
negotiations.
A bus driver who shuttled some
of the guests from Siirt to
Gaziantep said that he couldnt
believe the party was targeted.
This was a wedding party. Just a
regular wedding party, Hamdullah
Ceyhan told the state-run Anadolu
Agency. This attack was
deplorable. How did they do such a
thing?
The bride and groom werent in
life-threatening condition and
were undergoing treatment, but
the grooms sister and uncle were
among the dead, Anadolu reported.
Multiple opposition parties
denounced the attack, as did many
foreign governments including
the U. S. , Germany, Austria,
Russia, Egypt, Sweden, Greece,
France, Bahrain, Qatar and Jordan
and global institutions including
the United Nations, the European
Union and NATO.

Somalia bombings kill 17 at local government HQ, market


By Abdi Guled
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MOGADISHU, Somalia A suicide bomber detonated an explosives-laden vehicle at the gates of


a local government headquarters
in Somalia while another bomber
targeted a nearby marketplace,
killing at least 17 people and
wounding more than 30 others,
police said Sunday.

Abdisalam Yusuf with the police


said one bomber rammed the car
into a checkpoint in Galkayo
town Sunday morning after reaching the main gate of Puntlands
local government.
Puntland, a semi-autonomous
state in northern Somalia, controls the northern part of the
town, while the southern part is
controlled by rival regional state
Galmudug.

Somali Prime Minister Omar


Abdirashid Sharmarke condemned
the twin blasts, saying that evildoers had targeted innocent civilians.
The al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab
group claimed responsibility for
the attack. The town, unlike other
parts of the country where alShabab continues a deadly guerrilla campaign, rarely sees such
attacks.

The towns main hospital


received more than 15 wounded
people, including some with horrific wounds, a nurse, Abdikareem
Ali, told the Associated Press.
Some of them were burnt
beyond recognition. It was a dark
day, he said.
Some of the bodies were discovered in nearby houses destroyed by
the blasts, said Col. Muse Hassan,
a senior police officer.

Letters to the editor


A whole new meaning
to street cleaners
Editor,
TV images show rather spectacularly beautiful scenes at the Olympic
Games but.
Thirty years ago, Time Magazine
published an article describing the
cleansing of the streets in Brazil
by cops.
Poverty was described as so bad
that the kids were turned out to fend
for themselves because parents had
no way to care for them.
Kids joined with other turned-out
kids and survived as best they could
scrounging their meals as best
they could, legally or not. In the
struggle for survival, the kids learned
nothing of the mores of society; the
only rule was survival.
The kids also were deprived of
parental hugs, kisses, love and discipline. In the process, they reverted to
animal behavior: Beg or steal, and
there was plenty of stealing as a
result. It didnt matter; survival was
the only thing that counted.
There was no way to rehabilitate
these young animals whose only
value was to survive.
So cops went about at night and
shot sleeping, un-rehabilitable young
animals in the streets; they could
never become contributing members
of society; therefore, the only solution was to cleanse the streets of
the problem, according to the Time
report.
Today, in the process of cleaning up
the slums, bulldozing them out of the
way in order to make room for the
Olympics, the Brazilian cleansing
process has continued.

Iranian and American money


Editor,
A letters contributor opined that the
$400 million of Iranian money that
had been frozen and then returned was
owed to another regime we supported, implying that we no longer owe
the money.Sorry, that wasnt the
Shah of Irans money, that money
was of the Iranian people.
Let me simplify this so it is understandable.If a country owes the U.S.
money and the debt occurred under a
Democratic president, that debt doesnt go away because we elected a
Republican who is no longer a friend
of the country that owes us. They still
owe us that money, it didnt belong to
Obama, nor Clinton, nor any politician. That money belongs to the
American people, just as the Iranian
money, agree with their politics or
not, belongs to them. I hope the letters contributor isnt the type of guy
to borrow money from a friend, has
an argument with them, and says,
Thats it, we had an argument, Im
going to deadbeat you and not pay
you back your money. Id pay the
debt like a man and not have anything more to do with them, but
maybe thats just me.

will deny the claim because you didnt

Repealing bans on public


funding for abortion
Editor,
Clinton has come out strongly on
repealing the Hyde Amendment,
which bans public funding for abortion.
This is an attack against the conscience of American citizens who
regard abortion as a violation against
the fth commandment of God.
Tim Kaine has said that he supports
the Hyde Amendment, but he has made
it clear that he does not and is fully
committed to Clintons political
agenda.
Llyse Hogue, president of Naral, an
anti-life organization, has stated that
the repeal of the Hyde Amendment is
their top priority.
Planned Parenthood president
Cecile Richard, another notorious
anti-life organization, has also stated
that they fully committed to repealing the Hyde Amendment and will
redouble their efforts to educate Tim
Kaine on the necessity of this
repeal.
Why are these anti-life organizations and Hillary Clinton determined
to repeal the Hyde Amendment? Isnt
the killing of over fty million preborn babies, not including chemical
abortions, enough for them? Is this a
case for more women to have the
legal right to have an abortion? It is
incomprehensible how a woman has
the legal right to kill her innocent
baby when it is medically, biologically and scientically proven to be a
baby at conception. Lastly, if women
are allowed the legal right, by choice,
to kill their innocent babies, does
this give ISIS, the terrorist group, the
legal right to kill innocent people
because of their choice? Certainly,
ISIS does not have the right to murder, so why should women have the
legal right to murder?

Mark your
calendars for
Saturday

his Saturday Aug. 27 is a big day in San


Mateo. So many major events to attend and celebrate. First is the anniversary celebration of San
Mateos Main Library. It is hard to believe that 10 years
have passed since the opening of the citys most beautiful
and most used building.
On that sunny summer
day a decade ago hundreds
of residents, luminaries,
and funders gathered to
applaud its brilliant architecture with its tall windows to bring in light and
views of the redwood trees;
its art work inside and out;
its LEAD designation as an
environmentally superior
building; its excellent collection of books; and its
mission to better serve a
diverse community.
Today city leaders in San
Mateo and Hillsborough,
the voters who supported a
parcel tax for the build and the many residents and businesses who funded the capital campaign and continue to
support special programs through contributions to the
San Mateo Library Foundation, can feel very proud. Today,
10 years later, the library is as beautiful as ever. It has,
indeed, become the communitys living room. At the same
time its collections have expanded into many languages.
It offers a full media collection of audiobooks and tapes,
free computers and internet access to those who lack it at
home and a host of programs for children and adults to
improve and enjoy literacy.
There will be community events all week to celebrate
and on Saturday, Aug. 27, at 11 a.m. there will be a cake
cutting and remarks from the mayor, Joe Goethals, president of the Library Board, Liz de Winter, and president of
the Library Foundation, Paige Meeks. And thanks to city
librarian Ben Ocon for putting this all together and keeping the library as beautiful as it was the day it opened.
***
Then off to Central Park where San Mateo Fireghters
Association will be hosting a chili cook-off to benet the
Muscular Dystrophy Association. Linger a while and then
head to the Japanese Garden to celebrate its 50th anniversary from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
***
If the Main Library is the most beautiful building in San
Mateo than the Japanese Tea Garden in Central Park is the
citys serene jewel. The garden was designed by the same
architect who designed the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden
Gate Park. It came about after World War II as local
Japanese Americans and community leaders wanted to heal
racial tensions in its aftermath. Then Mayor Roy
Archibald established a sister city relationship with
Toyonaka, Japan. That set the stage for the Japanese Tea
Garden with an acre dedicated in Central Park. Individuals
and companies raised funds, the San Mateo Gardeners
Association donated hours of labor and the city of
Toyanoka donated a pagoda. Today, the Japanese Tea
Garden is known as one of the nest and most beautiful
gardens in California and the most lovely locale in the
city. Thank to Sheila Canzian, director of Parks and
Recreation, her staff and the Gardeners Association for
keeping it that way.
***
I dropped by the opening of San Mateo Democrats campaign headquarters in Redwood City last week and saw
Assemblyman Rich Gordon D 24th District, who is about
to be termed out. He introduced me to Marc Berman, Palo
Alto City Council, who is running for Gordons seat.
Gordon is endorsing him. Berman has a good record in
Palo Alto. Its unfortunate he doesnt live in San Mateo
County (his opponent in November is also a Palo Alto
resident) but the lines keep going south. When Gordon
was rst elected he represented a district which included
San Carlos and Redwood City. But now the San Mateo part
of the district includes Atherton, East Palo Alto, Half
Moon Bay, Menlo Park, Portola Valley and Woodside.
With most of the San Mateo political leaders supporting
Berman including Gordon, state Assemblyman Kevin
Mullin, D-South San Francisco and supervisors Carole
Groom, Don Horsley, Dave Pine and Adrienne Tissier, he
will most likely take good care of his San Mateo County
constituents. He is the former development director at the
Silicon Valley Education Foundation, a nonprot dedicated
to closing the achievement gap in Silicon Valley public
schools.
Sue Lempert is the former may or of San Mateo. Her column appears Monday s in the Daily Journal.

Most limits on US-Mexico flights lifted

limited two or three airlines from

each country to a particular route


will go away.
Airlines on both sides of the
border will be able to fly whatever
routes they want as often as they
want and set their own prices, said
Thomas
Engle,
the
State
Departments deputy assistant secretary for transportation.
This will help reduce airfares
for sure, said George Hobica,
founder of the travel site airfarewatchdog.com.
Hobica said base fares between
the U.S. and many destinations in
Mexico are already low, but both
countries impose taxes that
inflate the price of a ticket. The
fares are low, its the rest that
makes it seem expensive, he
said.

For example, on a round trip


between Dallas-Fort Worth and
Cancun, Mexico already a popular route taxes and fees can
account for between 20 and 30 percent of the price of a bargain,
economy-class ticket of $383 to
$585.

Limited seats
Southwest promoted fares as low
as $258 for a round trip, although
seats were limited and the offer
was scheduled to end Sunday.
The agreement between the U.S.
and Mexico does not relax limits
on takeoffs and landings at
Mexico Citys busy main international airport. So the first new
flights from U. S. carriers will
focus on resort towns in Mexico.

Delta Air Lines Inc. announced


Friday that on Dec. 17 it will start
daily nonstop flights between
New Yorks Kennedy airport and
Cancun and between Los Angeles
and Los Cabos. It will run Saturday
flights between Kansas City and
Cancun.
Southwest
Airlines
Co.
announced that on Dec. 4 it will
start flying daily from Los
Angeles to Cancun, Los Cabos and
Puerto Vallarta. Southwest plans
to fly from Oakland, California, to
Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta
starting in February if it gets
approval from the Mexican government.
American Airlines Group Inc.
will begin flying between Miami
and Merida on the Yucatan penin-

sula on Nov. 4 and from Los


Angeles to Cancun and Puerto
Vallarta on Dec. 15, a spokesman
said.

Tourism
Engle, the State Department
official, said in an interview that
the agreement should help
American travelers and increase
Mexican tourism to the United
States.
We think it will help drive economic growth in sectors well
beyond aviation,
including
tourism and manufacturing, he
said. The agreement also covers
cargo airlines. It will let U.S.
cargo carriers fly from airports in
Mexico to other countries without
stopping in the United States.

As freestanding ERs grow, so does scrutiny


By David Warren
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DALLAS Freestanding emergency centers have sprouted in


recent years across the suburban
landscape, taking root in affluent
neighborhoods and directly challenging nearby medical clinics
and hospitals.
Five years ago there were a couple dozen stand-alone emergency
centers in Texas, and now there are
more than 200. Colorado, Ohio
and other states also have seen
steady growth.
As these centers offer another
choice for people tired of deflating
wait times at hospital emergency
rooms, their escalating numbers
are sending ripples across the
health-care field. Critics say they

do little to help those in rural


America with dire medical needs,
siphon away skilled emergency
physicians and too often stick
patients with overinflated bills.
Groups such as the Texas
Association of Freestanding
Emergency Centers counter that
people are getting an unprecedented level of care as the centers open
close to consumers, dont keep
them waiting, provide an ER
physician around-the-clock, and
are equipped for any medical emergency.
Researchers with Brigham and
Womens Hospital in Boston conducted a study that found the number
of stand-alone emergency departments grew from 222 in 2009 to
360 across 30 states as of March
2015. The most are in Texas, which

in 2009 adopted a law that allowed


private, for-profit ventures to provide the kind of emergency services
that hospitals do.
The idea of delivering fast,
quick, high-quality emergency
care ... is very innovative, said
Dr. Jeremiah Schuur, lead author of
the Brigham and Womens study
published last month.
The freestanding ERs locate in
zip codes with an attractive payer
mix, Schuur said, meaning ones
where more people are privately
insured, have higher incomes and
there are fewer Medicaid reimbursements. Theyre more likely
to open in parts of Texas already
served by traditional hospital
emergency rooms, he said.
Depending on your viewpoint,
they offer competition or a dupli-

cation of services, Schuur said.


There doesnt appear to be market incentive for many of the
stand-alone centers to open in
rural areas that are home to poorer
populations. At least 45 hospitals
in less populated parts of the U.S.
have closed since 2010, and a
quarter of those were in Texas,
according
to
the
Texas
Organization of Rural and
Community Hospitals.
So far, the freestanding ERs
have not filled the void left by
those closings.
It is important for policymakers to know that this is a service
thats locating to serve one part of
the population and not everyone,
Schuur said.
A spokesman for the Texas
Association of Freestanding

Emergency Centers did not return


phone messages seeking comment, but John McGee, an association board member, told The
Dallas Morning News this month
that rules dictating federal reimbursement rates and other regulatory hurdles make it difficult to
open locations in poor areas.
As hospitals face greater competition in providing emergency
services, theyre also finding it
more difficult to retain skilled ER
doctors. Grant Douglass, president of Southwest Medical
Associates, which contracts with
hospitals and clinics in primarily
rural parts of Texas to provide ER
physicians, estimates that at least
1, 500 doctors have been lured
from Texas hospitals with the
promise of better pay.

Flooding in South puts a damper on rice harvest


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LONOKE, Ark. Heavy rain


that brought record flooding to
Louisiana recently has put a
damper on the nations harvest of
rice, a food staple that usually
likes water as it grows but cant be
gathered by machine if fields are
inundated.

While rice is an aquatic plant,


this is the time of year when
farmers drain their land and roll
in heavy equipment for the harvest. Some fields remain
unreachable in parts of Arkansas
and Louisiana.
Ive heard from a lot of the
farmers the water level has been
higher than a lot of the past hurri-

canes, said Dustin Harrell, a rice


agronomist at the LSU Agriculture
Research Center near Rayne,
Louisiana. Two feet of rain fell in
parts of the state.
The 2016 crop was expected to
be 26 percent larger than 2015s,
according to Eric Wailes, an agricultural
economist
at
the
University of Arkansas. Losing

part of this years crop shouldnt


trigger price increases for rice used
for food, or for cereal or beer that
use rice as an ingredient, he said.
Having a much larger crop
swamps this event, Wailes said
from his office in Fayetteville,
Arkansas. Its premature to make
a strong assessment of what it all
means.

If anything, he said, an 8 percent bump in rice futures prices


over the past week would offset
some losses if a farmer cannot
move his entire crop to market.
The biggest losers are the
farmers who are actually inundated, Wailes said. The crop that
was harvested is now more valuable.

end of the 2016 games and the transition.


Theres widespread expectation that the
games in Tokyo, one of the worlds richest,
most recognizable, cosmopolitan cities,
will run more smoothly than they have in
Rio. But theres also worry in Japan over
whether the Olympics will eventually further drag down an economy that has been
struggling for decades.

RIO DE JANEIRO The U.S. Olympic


Team made itself right at home in Rio.
The British, they had a Games to savor as
well.
The host Brazilians got soccer gold that
they craved, the Russians struggled on the
heels of the exposure of a state-sponsored
doping program, and the
Chinese finished well
below expectations.
So went the medal race
at the Rio de Janeiro
Olympics, where the
Americans with women
leading the way dominated both the gold and
Michael Phelps overall totals. The U.S.
finished with 46 gold
medals and 121 medals overall, its 51-totalmedal margin over second-place China the
largest in a non-boycotted Olympics in nearly a century.
This experience has been the dream of a
lifetime for me, said U.S. gymnast and closing ceremony flagbearer Simone Biles, who
won five medals, four of them gold, in her
first Olympics.
For the fourth consecutive games, U.S.
swimmer Michael Phelps left with more
medals than anyone else. He won six in Rio,
while Biles and U.S. swimmer Katie Ledecky
each won five to lead to lead a big haul from
American women.
U.S. women left Rio with 27 golds by
far the most among any team of female
Olympians at these games and 61 medals
total. U.S. track star Allyson Felix, now a
six-time gold medalist and a winner of nine
medals in all, was particularly delighted to
learn that women are bringing more medals
home to American than the men.
Got em, Felix said, smiling.
By now, the Americans winning the medal
race is almost commonplace. But the significance in Rio were the sheer amounts of hardware.

WCAL embarks on 50th anniversary season


By John Horgan
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

A milestone begins this month, albeit


without much fanfare. The West Catholic
Athletic League is commencing its 50th
season as a Bay Area prep sports conference. Through the decades since its inception in the fall of 1967, the league has
become one of the strongest in California.
It began as an outgrowth of the original
Catholic Athletic League, a Bay Area-wide

entity comprised, early on, of relatively


small high schools with limited budgets
and, frequently, minimal facilities.
Some of those institutions (St. Anselms
of Marin County and St. Peters and St.
James, both of San Francisco) no longer
exist. In the aftermath of World War II, the
evolving CAL did not feature extensive athletic offerings.
Well-established Bellarmine Prep in San
Jose, founded in 1851, did not join the CAL
in football until the late 1950s. The Bells

were simply too strong; early CAL competition was not consistently challenging
enough for them. But that changed once new
parochial schools like Serra in San Mateo
and Riordan in San Francisco began to see
healthy enrollment increases in the 1950s
and St. Francis of Mountain View opened
and grew quickly.
In its heyday in the early 1960s, the CAL
was split evenly in half: Four East Bay
schools (St. Marys of Berkeley, St.
Josephs of Alameda, Bishop ODowd and

St. Elizabeths, both of Oakland) and four in


the West Bay (Riordan, Serra, Bellarmine
and St. Francis). But only one East Bay outfit, St. Marys, had a CAL football program.
Marin Catholic had left the CAL for Marin
Countys public school league late in the
1950s. Efforts by Serra to join the
Peninsula Athletic League at about the same
time did not come to fruition. A crucial vote
of PAL administrators failed by one vote.

Samardzijas gem gets Giants bupkis Early error


By Gideon Rubin

Mets 2, Giants 0

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Jeff Samardzija lost


his bid for a no-hitter, then Yoenis Cespedes
punished a mistimed curveball. That was
enough to drop the Giants out of first place.
Noah Syndergaard and Jeurys Familia combined on a three-hitter and Cespedes homered
off Samardzija, leading the New York Mets
over San Francisco 2-0 on Sunday night.
Samardzija (10-9) held the Mets hitless
until Curtis Grandersons leadoff double in the
seventh. Cespedes followed with his 25th
home run, a towering two-run blast that
appeared to clear the stands in left field.
You dont really worry about that (the nohitter) until later in the game, Samardzija
said. For me, I was just worried about the
score.
The Giants dropped to second in the NL
West after entering the day with a half-game
lead on the Dodgers. Los Angeles beat
Cincinnati earlier Sunday.
Samardzija was sharp for a third straight
start that followed a stretch of 11 outings in
which he had just two quality starts.
I liked where hes at and he carried that into
todays game, Giants manager Bruce Bochy
said. He pitched his heart out and ran into a
hot hitter.
Samardzija tried to sneak a 1-0 curveball
past Cespedes, who homered for the third
time in two days to help split the four-game
series.

or a swing and miss, Samardzija said. Hes a
heck of a hitter, I played with him in Oakland
and I know what he can do. Hes a clutch guy.
Syndergaard (11-7) allowed two hits over
eight innings for his second consecutive win
following a six-start skid. Its Syndergaards
20th career victory in 49 games.
Thats just a great pitching effort by
(Samardzija), he did a terrific job, he gave us a
chance against one of the best, Bochy said.

Youre not going to see better stuff than what

Australias Luck wins with 8-hole run

U.S. Amateur golf

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. Curtis


Luck was walking along the course, doing
the math on how hed turned a close U.S.
Amateur final into a rout by winning eight
holes in a row. It was hard for the 20-yearold Australian to process.
I think I started laughing, walking down
the fairway, he said. I havent heard of that,
and I havent seen it before. What an amazing
thing to do while youre out in the final of the
U.S. Amateur Championship.
Luck built a commanding lead with that
eight-hole run shortly after the midway point
of Sundays final match, and he went on to

beat Brad Dalke 6 and 4 to become the U.S.


Amateurs third international champion in
four years.
The 36-hole final on the South Course at
Oakland Hills was all square after 18, and
Dalke won the first hole after the break. Luck
answered with an eagle on the 20th to square
it again, and that was the start of a decisive
streak that eventually left him 7 up with nine
holes remaining.
Its so rare to be able to do that, especially
in match play, which is, as you know, one hole
at a time you win one and things can change
so quickly, Luck said. I didnt expect it at all.

Although Dalke finally snapped Lucks


streak by winning a couple holes of his own,
the University of Oklahoma sophomore
couldnt close the gap any more. He conceded
after missing a putt for par on the 32nd hole.
I never really felt comfortable that second
round. I dont know if it was the break or
what, Dalke said. Now it seems like it was a
blur. It went by pretty quick.
Luck joins Matthew Fitzpatrick of
England (2013) and Gunn Yang of South
Korea (2014) among recent international
winners of this event. Hes also only the
third Australian-born champion. Nick
Flanagan won in 2003 and Walter Travis
won it in 1900, 1901 and 1903.

CHICAGO The As made another costly


mistake Sunday.
A low throw by second baseman Chad
Pinder on a double-play attempt led to
Chicago scoring three runs in the first inning
and the Athletics never recovered on the way
to a 4-2 loss to the White Sox on Sunday.
Ive just got to be better and more accurate
with that throw, said Pinder, who had several family members in attendance for his first
start in the majors.
The loss was Oaklands seventh in its last
eight games.
We had a bad trip, frustrated As manager
Bob Melvin said. You know, 1-5 is no
good.
Zach Neal (2-3) allowed four runs and eight
hits in 4 2/3 innings in place of Jesse Hahn,
who had been expected to come off the disabled list. Hahn suffered discomfort in his
strained right shoulder in a bullpen session
on Friday and will need another rehab game
before rejoining the Athletics rotation.
Jose Quintana pitched into the eighth
inning to earn a career-best 10th win and
Jose Abreu homered for the second straight
game to lead Chicago. Todd Frazier had three
hits and drove in two runs, and Justin
Morneau added an RBI double in a three-run
first as the White Sox took the final two
games of the series. Tim Anderson also had
three hits.
The White Sox staked Quintana to a 3-0
lead in the bottom half. After the As failed to
turn Abreus grounder into an inning-ending
double play, Morneau doubled in the first run.
Then Fraziers single drove in two more.
Khris Davis hit his 32nd homer, a two-run
shot, off Quintana (10-9) who finished with
nine wins in each of the previous three seasons. The left-hander gave up eight hits while
striking out six and walking one to improve
to 5-1 with a 2.25 ERA in his last nine starts.
Oaklands Marcus Semien had two doubles
and Jake Smolinski singled twice.

RIO DE JANEIRO Claressa


Shields had Olympic gold around her
neck and a secret
keepsake in her
warmup jacket
pocket.
She
reached in her
pocket, pulled
out her first gold
from London
and slipped the
medal over her
Claressa Shields head.
Two Olympics, two gold medals.
She beamed as she held the
medals in her hands for the fans to
see a sparkling reminder that she
stood atop the medal stand not only
as the best in the world in her class,
but as the only American twotime boxing gold medalist.
Im going to let the world
know and theyll never forget
that I have two Olympic gold
medals, she said. Just in case
anybody had any questions.
Shields had all the answers as she
breezed through three unanimous
decision victories in the tournament. The 21-year-old Flint,
Michigan, native thumped Dutch

fighter Nouchka Fontijn in convincing fashion to wrap up backto-back middleweight gold.


With the title a formality, she
gestured toward a passive Fontijn
in the fourth round as if to say,
Come fight! Fontijn offered no
resistance and the round served as
little more than a coronation for
the American face of womens boxing.
I was like, hey, were here to
fight, Shields said. You think
you can beat me? Lets go. I hit you
with a hard shot. Hit me back.
Shields ran her Olympics
record to 6-0, and she hasnt
lost a fight since London, winning two world championships
and a Pan-American
Games title over the
last four years.

as a freshman. But he tore through
the field to win at the worlds in

so.
Snyder had planned to take a redshirt year to focus on the Olympics.
But he couldnt stay off the mat,
electing to rejoin his teammates in
January. Snyder went undefeated at
heavyweight for the Buckeyes,
beating two-time NCAA champion
Nick Gwiazdowski despite giving
up at least 40 pounds.
Snyder lost three times in the runup to the Olympics, including a 2-1
defeat to Goziumov in Germany last
month, and saw his world ranking
drop to fourth.
But Snyder let the rest of the field
know he was locked in from his
opening match, shoving Javier

Krzyzewski said it didnt matter how the


Americans won, that there would be no questions as long as they did.
And there was no doubt they would Sunday
once Durant heated up.
He had also scored 30 in the 2012 goldmedal game, after he poured in a U.S.-record
38 in one game en route to the MVP of the
2010 world basketball championship. He is
already the Americans No. 2 career scorer in
the Olympics in just two appearances.

When the final horn sounded, the U.S.

and then Krzyzewski.
It was a tough ending after an impressive
run for Serbia in its first Olympics as an
independent nation. The heart of an international power in the former Yugoslavia, the
Serbs hadnt qualified for the Olympics
since gaining their independence in 2006.
They dropped three games in the group
stage but had the look of a team that could

challenge the Americans after nearly knocking them off earlier in the tournament and
overwhelming Australia in the semifinals.
They were down just 16-15 before Durant
made a 3-pointer for the final points of the
first quarter, and before they knew it he had
turned the game into a blowout.
They are superstars. If you let them play
like they want, they will kill you, guard
Stefan Markovic said. Each of their 12
guys can do that.
A challenging year for the Americans
started long before they boarded the cruise
ship they stayed on while in Rio. For the
first time since 2004, many top American
players opted to skip the Olympics, forcing
them to bring some here who wouldnt have
been considered otherwise.
The 10 Olympic newcomers seemed to be
jelling slowly and the U.S. had a pair of
three-point victories and came in winning
by just 21.4 points per game, more than 10
per game fewer than four years ago and
about half the 43.8 the Dream Team won by
in 1992.
This team kept getting better and even
those three games in pool play, we had not
played that type of game against that type
of level of opponent, Krzyzewski said.
We said it was a learning experience and
our guys did learn and we put it to good practice.
Krzyzewski, an assistant on the Dream
Team, has long insisted that international
basketball has gotten too strong for anyone
to win that easily again.
Yet on Sunday, the Americans did.

and he wasnt the only one


leaving Rio happy.
Even with far fewer athletes competing in Rio
than it had in London four
years ago - and no homefield advantage this time,
either - Britain got more
medals than ever in the
Simone Biles modern games. The
British won 67 medals in
Rio, 27 of them gold.
The atmosphere at the GB house has
been amazing in the village, said Mo
Farah, who won gold for Britain in the
5,000- and 10,000-meter races to match the
feat he pulled off at London in 2012.
Winning medals and just one after the
other. Gold, silver, bronze. The atmosphere
has been brilliant. To be able to go even further than London, I think as a nation we

should be proud.
The Russians and the
Chinese probably didnt
feel the same.
China won 26 golds,
just over half as many as
it won in Beijing in
2008. Russia with its
track team told to stay
Katie Ledecky home because of the doping probe and a cloud
hovering over its athletes who were in Rio,
some of whom got publicly called out by
competitors finished with 19 golds and 56
medals overall, both well below its normal
showings.
U.S. swimmer Lilly King beat Russias
Yulia Efimova for the 100-meter breaststroke
gold, doing so after saying the games should
have no room for dopers. Efimova has twice
been banned.

I stand by what I said, King said.


It was not positive, Efimova told the
BBC. It was like war.
There were plenty of positives for others,
however.
Usain Bolt finished off his triple-triple
three Olympics, three sprint golds in each
for Jamaica, in what he said was his last
games. Neymars game-winning penalty kick
decided a shootout and clinched the mens
soccer gold medal for Brazil, a host that wasnt a factor in the medal standings but got the
gold that it probably wanted most.
And 10 teams including the independent
team won their first golds, including
Monica Puig in womens tennis for Puerto
Rico.
That island has given me so much, Puig
said. So much love and support throughout
my career and I just wanted this one for them.

leave Coach K off with another gold was one
of our main goals as well, Durant said.
Anthony also picked up his third gold to
go with a bronze, becoming the most decorated male in Olympic basketball history.
The U.S. beat Serbia by just 94-91 in pool
play, holding on when Bogdan Bogdanovic
missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer. This
rematch looked nothing like that meeting,
but it did resemble the final of the 2014
Basketball World Cup, which the Americans
won 129-92.
To come out there and play as well as we
did against a team that had stepped up their
play as well, it showed that we came together at the right time, Durant said.
Anthony checked back into the rout in the
final minutes so he could grab a seventh
rebound, passing David Robinson for U.S.
record with the 125th in his Olympic career.
He had already become the leading scorer
earlier in the tournament, capping an
Olympic career that began with disappointment as a member of the U.S. team that finished third in 2004.
The Americans havent lost since, winning 25 straight in the Olympics.
A few of the victories were more difficult
than usual in this tournament, where half
the Americans eight games were decided by
10 points or fewer.

MEDALS
Continued from page 11
The previous record for U.S. medals at a
fully attended Olympics was 110, set at
Beijing eight years ago. And the margin
between first and second in the overall medals
race this year tops all others (the boycotted
games of 1980 and 1984 excluded) since the
Americans won 67 more medals than Italy did
at the 1932 Los Angeles Games.
We werent sure we were going to have that
kind of success coming in, said USOC CEO
Scott Blackmun, noting the track and swimming teams had plenty of first-time
Olympians.
But Blackmun was thrilled by the results,

to reach the milestone.
Samardzija remained winless in four career starts against the
Mets. Samardzija allowed only three hits and two runs over
seven innings and struck out seven.
The duel between Syndergaard and Samardzija was in stark
contrast to the first three games of this series, when the teams
combined for 40 runs. Only two runners from either team
reached second base Sunday, and both scored.
The Giants also made a pair of sparkling defensive plays.
Brandon Crawford made a diving stop on Jose Reyes sharp
liner in the first inning, then second baseman Joe Panik
robbed Reyes of an infield single with two outs in the sixth
when he fielded a slow grounder and flipped it to first base
with his glove.

Ponder hits ground running in 49ers preseason win in Denver


By Dennis Georgatos
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DENVER Christian Ponder ran for a


score and threw for another in the fourth quarter and San Francisco pulled away to beat the
Denver Broncos 31-24 in an exhibition
Saturday night.
Ponder was signed earlier in the week to
bolster the teams depth at quarterback.
Blaine Gabbert, trying to solidify his hold
on the starting quarterback job in Colin
Kaepernicks absence, led a scoring drive and
finished 6 of 9 for 69 yards in roughly a quarter and a half of play.
Kaepernick, who missed the first exhibition because of a sore right shoulder, resumed
throwing in practice Thursday and is expected to begin fully participating in workouts
next week in hopes of playing Friday against
Green Bay.
Ponder, who was out of football last season, was added by the 49ers (1-1) after backup quarterback Thad Lewis suffered a season-

WCAL
Continued from page 11
A fateful decision that would alter the Bay
Areas high school sports landscape occurred
in San Francisco in the mid-1960s when officials at St. Ignatius determined that the Jesuit
institution would have to leave the publicschool-dominated
Academic
Athletic
Association because of a new rule that prohibited non-San Francisco athletes from AAA
competition.
Once SI took that step, its ancient in-city
rival, Sacred Heart, would follow two years
later. The Irish didnt have much choice.
Where else to go? With SI, naturally. Savvy
leaders of the CAL were ready and waiting.
They decided to embrace SI and then SH in a
new West Bay-only league, the WCAL.
The East Bay Catholic schools remained as
the CAL and expanded (it was finally disbanded and its teams were distributed into public
school leagues at the end of the 1980s, much
to the dismay of the CALs loyal supporters).
In San Francisco, the AAA was never the
same; its been in decline ever since.
Along with a new Catholic school in San
Jose, Archbishop Mitty, the newly-minted
WCAL began operating in 1967-68 with six
schools (St. Marys remained in football for
several years as well). Ed Fennelly, a Riordan
administrator and a key architect of the
arrangement, was the leagues first commissioner, serving in that capacity for nearly 30

49ers 31, Broncos 24


ending knee injury in
their exhibition opener
against Houston last
week. Ponder scored on a
22-yard bootleg and then
completed a 30-yard
touchdown pass to Dres
Christian
Anderson.
The Broncos (1-1),
Ponder
also in search of a quarterback after the retirement of Peyton Manning
and free agency departure of Brock Osweiler,
did not get a decisive performance from their
contenders.
Trevor Siemian led a nifty game-opening
touchdown drive that C.J. Anderson finished
with a 19-yard run, but he also was picked off
by Eric Reid, who returned the interception
42 yards for the score. Reid easily eluded
Siemians attempt to tackle him near the goal
line. Siemian was 10 of 14 for 75 yards.
Mark Sanchez, who started the Broncos
years. Sacred Heart joined for the 1969-70
season.
A non-Catholic school, Valley Christian of
San Jose, was added in 2003. Girls sports
eventually were included too. All-girls
Presentation of San Jose is currently part of
the leagues female equation. Belmonts allgirls Notre Dame has dropped out as of this
year (the Tigers will remain in water polo).
The results on the scoreboard have been
impressive. The WCAL member schools (all
of which are tuition-based and do not have
enrollment restrictions based on geography
as do public schools) have been competing
fiercely with one another since that inaugural
campaign. They are also a force outside their
league.
According to the WCALs website, the
leagues varsity teams have captured 451
Central Coast Section championships, 90
Northern California titles and 40 state
crowns. Significantly, of those 40 state
championships, 34 have been won by girls
teams. Many observers believe that the
WCALs overall girls program is the best and
most challenging top-to-bottom, year-inand-year-out in Northern California. And the
boys arent far behind.
In terms of superiority within the league,
Bellarmine rules the roost on an all-sports
basis. The Bells, with an enrollment of 1,600
boys, have won 254 WCAL varsity championships, far more than any other school.
Coed St. Francis is second with 148.
The rest are as follows: Mitty 114, St.
Ignatius 91, Serra 63, Riordan 29, Valley
Christian 17, Sacred Heart Cathedral 17,

exhibition opener last week, relieved


Siemian and led a drive ending in a field goal
but struggled overall, with three sacks and
fumbling twice. He completed 10 of 17 for
120 yards and just missed having one of his
throws intercepted by cornerback Chris
Davis.
Paxton Lynch, the Broncos first-round
draft pick, was the most productive among
the three though he has primarily gotten
third-team reps in training camp.
He threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to John
Phillips late in the third quarter and another
covering 4 yards to Durron Neal in the waning minutes. His final pass was intercepted
in the last moments by cornerback Kenneth
Acker.

Kap making progress


Kaepernick went through his pregame
passing routine in anticipation of participating fully in practices next week ahead of
Presentation nine. Notre Dame has three.
Sacred Heart Prep of Atherton has 22, 20 in
boys and girls water polo combined. Notre
Dame and SHP currently are supplementary
members of the WCAL.
Some of the prominent WCAL alums,
through the decades, include: Aaron Gordon,
Lynn Swann, Kerri Walsh Jennings, Chris
Munk, Shannon Rowbury, Tom Brady, Brandi
Chastain, Barry Bonds, Dan Fouts, Kevin
Gogan, Pablo Morales, Kevin Restani, Doug
Cosbie, Tyler Johnson, Gregg Jefferies, Igor
Olshansky, Raymond Townsend, Byron
Marshall, Pat Burrell, Mike Ryan, and Eric

WCAL Commissioner Jolene Fugate said
the leagues primary observation of its founding will occur in 2017-18.

Fridays exhibition against Green Bay. The


biggest thing is seeing how he responds in
terms of if there are any residual effects (from
his pregame throwing session) and see how
he feels in the morning and see how hes progressing, coach Chip Kelly said.

Rookie watch
WR Bryce Treggs, an undrafted free agent
out of Cal, caught a 25-yard pass from fellow
rookie Jeff Driskel to help set up a secondquarter field goal. Treggs later left the game
with a knee injury. WR Devon Cajuste, an
undrafted free agent from Stanford, caught a
40-yard pass from Driskel in the third quarter.

Position battles
RB Mike Davis, in the mix for the right to
back up starter Carlos Hyde, ran five times
for 26 yards but also had two fumbles. ... RB
DuJuan Harris, also competing for a backup
spot, appeared headed for the end zone late in
the third quarter, but fumbled at the 1 and the
ball was recovered in the end zone by the
Broncos for a touchback.

College football
Cal, Hawaii touch down in Sydney
SYDNEY A chartered Boeing 777
touched down at Sydney airport on Monday
morning, delivering the California Golden
Bears and team officials for their muchanticipated opening college football game
of the season on Saturday against Hawaii.
The 14-hour flight left San Francisco a
bit late, just after midnight Saturday night.
The 100-plus players and coach Sonny
Dykes missed the rest of Sunday when they
crossed the International Date Line in the
middle of the Pacific Ocean.
No worries, the Golden Bears will pick up
that time when they return to the U.S. after
the game, arriving back in California technically before they leave due to the 17-hour
time difference in their favor.

Whatever the future holds,
Sundays party was all about
Brazil, a final party designed to be
more low-key than the opening,
which focused heavily on Rio. The
ceremony opened with original
footage of Alberto Santos
Dumont, the man that Brazilians
recognize as the inventor of the
airplane. Brazilians also believe
he is the first to ever wear a wristwatch, an invention made by a
friend so he could see the time in
flight.
The theme of the show was
Brazilians can do with their bare
hands, a nod to the emerging
economy of the worlds fifth most
populous nation.
Dressed in colorful feathers,
dozens of dancers formed in the
shape of the arches of Lapa, a popular area of Rio akin to Roman
ruins, then morphed to make the
shape of iconic Sugarloaf before
quickly changing again, this time
to the official 2016 symbol.
Samba legend Martinho da Vila,
whose tunes make their way into
many popular telenovelas, sang
Carinhoso, or Affectionate.

flags while many shook their bod-

ies to samba-infused pop that
made the stadium feel like a
Carnival parade. Britains athletes
wore shoes with soles that lit up in
changing colors of red, white and
blue, while Tongan taekwondo
athlete Pita Taufatofua danced
onstage in a grass skirt as a DJ
performed, reprising a moment
that captured attention when he
carried the flag for his country during the opening ceremony.
The show widened its lens
beyond the postcard city of Rio to
greater Brazil, a massive country
with a land mass slightly larger
than the continental United
States. There was a tribute to cave
paintings of some of the first
inhabitants of the Americas, in
Serra da Capivara, in Northeastern
Brazil, today the nations poorest
region.
Spectators got to see performers
shake it to frevo, a frenetic dance
that if its even possible
makes high-octane samba seem
like a staid ballroom affair.
Holding a small umbrella, the
dancers jumped up and down,
seeming to march and incorporate
acrobatics at the same time.
They
shook
it
to
Vassourinhas, which means
small brooms, a popular song
that was also the name of a famous
club in the northeastern city of
Recife.
The show also built performances around saudade, which means
anything from longing for some-

one to sadness to remembering


good times. It is one of the most
important words in Brazilian
Portuguese. Lights flashed translations for the word in many languages, and a group of women sang
Mulher Rendeira, or Lace-making Woman, a nod to the countrys African heritage. Brazil was
the last country in the Americas to
outlaw slavery, in 1888.
The games had many memorable
moments, both for Brazilian competitors at home and athletes from
around the world.
Soccer-crazed Brazil got partial
payback against Germany, winning gold two years after a 7-1
World Cup final shellacking that
left many in Latin Americas
largest nation fuming. American
gymnast Simone Biles asserted
her dominance with four golds,
swimmer Michael Phelps added
five more to up his staggering
total to 23 and the worlds fastest
man, Usain Bolt, put on his usual
show with three golds just days
before turning 30 years old.
But there were also ugly
episodes, like American swimmer
Ryan Lochtes fabricated story
about a harrowing robbery that was
actually an intoxicated-fueled vandalism of a gas station bathroom,
and bizarre issues like Olympic
diving pools going from crystal
blue to gunky, algae green at a
time when Rios water quality in
open waters is one of the biggest
local environmental issues.

Ben-Hur crashes, Suicide Squad stays on top


By Jake Coyle
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK A big-budget


remake of Ben-Hur was trampled
under a herd of holdovers and new
releases at the box office, the latest casualty in a bruising summer
for Hollywood.
The Paramount Pictures release,
which cost about $100 million to
make, debuted with just $11.4 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. That makes it one
of the seasons more pricy flops,
albeit one that never had anything
like the ambition of 1959s
Charlton Heston epic.
Instead, Warner Bros.s muchmaligned DC Comics supervillain
team-up film Suicide Squad held
the top spot for the third straight
week with an estimated $20.7 million over its third weekend. It has
now made $262.3 million domestically (fourth best for the summer) despite steep declines and
poor reaction from critics and fans
alike.
Seth Rogens foul-mouthed food
animated comedy Sausage Party
continued to do well for Sony
Pictures. In its second weekend, it
took in $15. 3 million, good
enough for second place, and

Suicide Squad held the top spot for the third straight week with an estimated $20.7 million over its third weekend.
bringing its two-week total to
$65.3 million.
Two offbeat debuts slid in
behind Suicide Squad and
Sausage Party: the Iraq War comedy War Dogs, with Miles Teller
and Jonah Hill; and the stopmotion animated Kubo and the

Fierce felines

Ken WHITE

Reader Alita called to ask some


advice. Shes enjoying the company of a neighbors cat who frequently stops by for her attention. The
problem occurs soon after the petting begins. Even though its all
lovey-dovey at the start, said feline
will suddenly turn and bite or
scratch the hand that hed been so
fond of just moments ago. What
makes this Feline Jekyll turn into a
Cat Hyde?
What can I say...? Cats! Its all a
mystery.

Two Strings from Focus Features


and Laika Entertainment.
War Dogs, the first movie
after The Hangover trilogy for
director Todd Phillips, was lambasted by critics, but it sold a
decent $14.3 million in ticket
sales.

No, seriously, this phenomenon


is quite well known. One of my own
cats, Puccini, is guilty of it now and
then. In the animal world this is referenced as feline over-stimulation:
Swatting, scratching and biting as a
response to what the cat perceives
as just too much.
Although theories abound (find
two self-proclaimed feline experts
and youll soon have a cat fight on
your hands!), the likelihood is that
this is a response to hormones
released because of that initially
enjoyable attention. Perhaps the
cat has had enough and simply

Kubo and the Two Strings, an


acclaimed fantasy about a boy in
ancient Japan, debuted with $12.6
million, the weakest opening of
any film from Laika, the Oregonbased animation studio behind
Coraline, ParaNorman and
The Boxtrolls. Kubo and the
Two Strings was fashioned as
Laikas most ambitious film yet,
with the companys chief executive, Travis Knight, making his
directorial debut.
But after the fifth place opening
of Ben-Hur, the second coming
of the sword-and-sandal movie
appears to be attracting dwindling
flocks of moviegoers.
A coproduction between MGM
and Paramount, Ben-Hur is the
third adaption of Lee Wallaces
novel, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the
Christ.
With producers Mark Burnett
and Roma Downey (The Bible
miniseries), the film courted
Christian moviegoers. But it was
unable to turn them out as successfully as Paramount did for Noah
(which debuted with $43.7 million in 2014) or even Foxs less
popular Exodus: Gods and Kings
(a $24. 1 million opening in
2014).
Still, fueled by Suicide Squad

wants you to stop, but from my own


experience I believe that this is not
aggression, nor necessarily even
something under the cats conscious control. Rather than a cat
version of I vant to be alone, I
believe its more like that out-ofcontrol feeling we humans sometimes experience when too much
adrenaline follows an exciting or
scary experience.
But really, who cares whats causing it? What we want to know is
how to not get bit and scratched.
The answer, as with most questions
of animal behavior, is to be obser-

residents to repave the cul-de-sac could be
done at the same time the drainage swale
was repaired and by the same company.
But city staff rejected the proposal,
Bisordi said, and the council will consider at
its Monday night meeting whether to take
any action.
Staff investigated the issue and realized
that in addition to the run-off from public
property on Lyndhurst, run-off from front
yards and rooftops of several residents on
Primrose Lane is directed to the existing
drainage swale. It appears that approximately 50 percent of the run-off that is con-

Continued from page 6
The White House will continue to press
lawmakers for money to help keep the mosquito-borne Zika virus from spreading and
to develop a vaccine, now that Florida last
week identified the popular Miami tourist
haven of South Beach as the second site of
Zika transmission on the U.S. mainland. A
section of Miamis Wynwood arts district
was the first.
Obama asked Congress for $1.9 billion
this year for Zika prevention. Republicans
offered $1.1 billion and added provisions
that Democrats objected to, including language on Planned Parenthood and other
issues, leaving the matter in limbo before
Congress
adjourned
in
mid-July.
Lawmakers could end up adding Zika money
to the broader spending bill.
In turn, incensed lawmakers have promised to keep the heat on the administration
over $400 million it delivered to Iran in
January. Republicans say the money was
ransom, paid to win freedom for four
Americans who were being held in Iran.
Questioned about the payment earlier this
month, Obama said: We do not pay ransom. We didnt here. And we ... wont in the
future.
The president and other officials denied
any linkage. But administration officials
also said it made little sense not to retain
maximum leverage, as State Department
spokesman John Kirby put it last week, for

veyed in the swale is generated by Primrose
Lane residents, while the remaining run-off
originates from Lyndhurst Avenue, Walter
writes in the report to council.
City staff proposed that a drainage swale
with a retaining curb in the back be constructed to protect Bisordis property from
future overflow.
Bisordi verbally agreed, on the behalf of
the other residents, to pay for half the cost,
according to Walters report.
Bisordi, however, never signed the agreement.

the money long owed to Iran, to ensure the


U.S. citizens release, given uncertainty
about whether Iran would keep its promise
to free them the day the money was to be
delivered.
The explanations have failed to satisfy
critics in and out of Congress. Trump has
begun telling supporters at his campaign
rallies that Obama openly and blatantly
lied about the prisoners. House Speaker
Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Obama has set a
dangerous precedent and owes the public
a full accounting of his actions.
Obama opens the fall, and whats expected to be a dogged effort to boost Clinton to
the White House, in improved standing
with the public, according to the Pew
Research Center. His job approval rating
stands at 53 percent, compared with 42 percent disapproval. Thats about the same as
just before Julys political conventions.
But Obamas standing among independent voters has reached positive territory for
the first time since December 2012. Fiftythree percent of independents approve of
Obamas job performance, the center found,
while 40 percent disapprove. Independents
had split 46 percent to 46 percent on the
question in June.
Obama wont spend much time at the
White House after a vacation during which
he played golf or went to the beach almost
daily.
After the Louisiana visit, the president
heads to Nevada on Aug. 31 to discuss environmental protection at the Lake Tahoe
Summit. He follows with the Sept. 2-9 trip

nications to local law enforcement agencies
and inadequate training for addressing campus emergencies.
Chancellor Ron Galatolo said as officials
eye emergency response protocol, maintaining the health and wellness of those
who frequent district campuses is a primary
focus.
First and foremost, the safety of faculty,
students and the visiting community is
paramount to us, he said.
The district maintains its own private
security team of unarmed personnel at the
College of San Mateo as well as Caada and
Skyline Colleges who must contact local
law enforcement agencies should an emergency occur.
To connect with the police, district security guards must depend on either cellphones or radios which the grand jury
claims occasionally suffer spotty and
unreliable coverage.
Though the district is the midst of
expanding cellphone and radio coverage
on their campuses, officials believe the
alliance with local law enforcement agencies is largely satisfactory, according to
the response.
The current district security director and
his predecessor have both worked to
develop excellent relationships between
our public safety department and state and
local law enforcement, fire departments,
emergency medical service providers and
emergency managers countywide, according to the report. We embrace these open
and constructive relationships. In addition, we support the improvement of cellular communications provider systems as
they benefit emergency notifications to
the first responder community through
mobile phones on district properties.
The district is in the process of authoring its own public safety report due at the

end of the year and officials expect many


concerns raised by the grand jury will be
addressed in the forthcoming document,
according to the response.
To protect against the threat of an active
shooter at a school site, the grand jury recommended more trainings be available to
faculty and students ensuring everyone on
district campuses are adequately prepared
to survive a potentially tragic scenario.
The district offers a variety of suggestions on its website regarding best practices for conduct during an emergency,
according to the response, and officials
plan to work with the admissions office in
coming semesters to ensure all incoming
students are informed regarding the existing protocol.
Beyond the information available
online, the district hosts training seminars such as campus crisis workshops
open to staff, faculty and students in
which attendees are able to discuss proper
responses to earthquakes, shelter in place
scenarios and other similar situations.
The most recent training held on a district campus addressed severe weather
emergencies and natural disasters, according to the response, and included expert
contributions from San Bruno first
responders, the San Mateo Police
Department, California Highway Patrol,
San Mateo County Sheriffs Office and
more.
Ultimately, the response indicates the
districts forthcoming safety study will
comprehensively address many of the
potential security shortfalls identified in
the grand jury report.
We believe that the in-progress public
safety study that is underway will gather
research and lead us toward additional best
practices in campus safety, while reviewing
structure, policies, and procedures on campus, according to the report. We believe
that the public safety study will address mitigation strategies including the use of current technology, and the direct and indirect
liabilities associated with such mitigation
strategies.

said Stephen Kaufman, who lives on
Oak Grove Avenue, in a letter written
to city officials.
Betsy Valdes, who lives across the
street, expressed a similar sentiment
and more.
We remain open and sympathetic to
the desires of the property owners and
project developers, but as the neighbor living directly across the street,
we continue to have concerns beyond
the boxy, non-residential design of the
building, according to the letter.
She and her husband Rick Valdes also
took issue with a proposal to build a
stair tower in front of the project, and
claimed in the letter such a feature is
unsuccessfully employed in other projects across Burlingame.
She acknowledged there should be
projects built utilizing alternative
architectural styles, but felt the
approach in the proposed development
design was inadequate, according to
the letter.

struction of the project to full control
of the city.
The move made Tuesday, Aug. 16
effectively green lights officials moving forward with potential construction of a new library, recreation center,
police and fire station and other public
amenities in a facility to be built using
proceeds from the citys recently
passed sales tax increase.
Vice Mayor Pradeep Gupta said he
expects the project slated to be built
on land bought from the San Francisco
Public Utilities Commission, or
SFPUC, across El Camino Real from
the citys existing Municipal Services
Building to be a landmark.
That will make that corner of the
city very much alive and certainly, in
my view, raise the property values all
around that and also provide citizens
one single place to go to meet many
needs at a single time, he said.
Prior to floating Measure W, the
half-cent sales tax hike approved by
voters in the fall, officials identified
the former SFPUC property as the ideal
site to build the project.
But earlier this year, some interest

The design should still be appropriate to the purpose, community and


location, and represent the best ideas,
not lapse back into design elements
that were never attractive, according
to the letter.
The Planning Commission too has
said a smaller building would fit better
with the character of the surrounding
neighborhood, and that the design is
too boxy.
The project has been subject to
design review, under direction of planning commissioners, and the architect
Levy Design Partners has revised components of the project in an effort to
help give it a more residential feel,
according to city documents.
Such efforts include amendments to
the entry and windows, as well as the
exterior stucco and adding a metal trellis to the fourth floor of the project.
To make way for the development,
two single-family homes will be razed
and the parcels will be combined. The
applicant had initially expressed interest in building 11 units, but since
reduced the size.
Beyond the ongoing dispute regarding the size and look of the project,
was expressed in potentially purchasing the Pacific Supermarket property
and developing a more vibrant facility
near the existing Municipal Services
Building, where the citys recreation
department, police department, a fire
department and other amenities are
housed.
Gupta though said officials have
since moved away from their potential
desire to acquire the supermarket site,
1015 El Camino Real, and go ahead
with the initial plan for the SFPUC
site.
With the target property identified,
a series of community town hall
meetings will be held in the coming
months to further address potential
design elements and receive feedback
from residents regarding amenities to
be featured at the site, said Gupta.
The next step will be for us to get
our residents involved in reviewing
some of these options, he said.
Plans for building a new civic center began developing in the wake of
officials deeming the existing
Municipal Services Building outdated, seismically unstable and unfit to
address the needs of a modern community.
Officials established a source of
financing for a new facility through
the voter approval of Measure W,
expected to generate $210 million

the builder believes the development


will help address a need for more area
housing, according to a letter sent to
city officials.
In all, the builder is aiming to erect a
project housing six two-bedroom
units, three one-bedroom units and one
three-bedroom unit in the four stories
above an underground parking garage
as well as a lobby on the ground floor.
If approved, all of the units would be
priced at market rates, according to the
project applicant.
The applicant is proposing to offer
17 parking spaces, which though compliant with city code, has caused concerns for other neighborhood residents
who feel the project will add to parking
congestion on surrounding streets,
according to the report.
Officials acknowledge the surrounding neighborhood suffers from parking and traffic issues which cannot be
resolved or addressed by a single project, according to the report.
The

over the next 30 years.
Earlier projections estimate the
project on SFPUC property could
cost in the ballpark of $150 million
to $165 million.
The size of the project and the
amount of parking built into it are
among the primary determining cost
factors, according to previous city
reports. Had officials pursued the
supermarket site, initial projections
showed the price could have jumped
as high as $178 million, depending
on size and scope.
An additional almost $20 million
of the additional tax revenue should
be set aside to address capital
improvements postponed during the
lean budget years suffered during the
Great Recession, officials have said.
Some officials have acknowledged
an opportunity to develop the underutilized former SFPUC land as a
means of revitalizing central property in South San Francisco and in the
process hopefully breathing new life
into the surrounding area.
Gupta said he anticipates the future
development of a project potentially
housing a variety of core community
services, combined with some open
space for residents to enjoy.
Im looking forward to having this
whole area together in a unified fashion to create the civic center, he said.

yourself, so will everyone else.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Cut to the chase and
take care of legal, contractual and financial matters

will lose your equilibrium. Dont let someone else

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Secretive actions will
lead to trouble. Honesty will bring about the results you
want in the quickest manner. Refuse to let anyone bully

Nation brief
Flint water case could hinge
in part on misconduct charges
LANSING, Mich. The prosecution of
current and former state employees for their
role in Flints lead-contaminated water crisis likely will face an early test over
whether one of the most serious charges can
even be levied against the middle- and
lower-level government officials.
All eight workers charged so far, five from

THREATS
Continued from page 6
such officers in schools has grown to
between 14,000 and 20,000, some armed.
And teachers are sometimes perceived as
first responders.
Lawmakers in Maine, New York,
Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and elsewhere
have explored strengthening penalties for
school threats.
In Ohio, lawmakers are proposing legislation to let schools expel students for
months for making certain kinds of threats
and have them evaluated to determine
whether theyre a danger to themselves or
others.
The bill, supported by associations representing school boards, superintendents and
school business managers, also would let
districts and law enforcement agencies seek
restitution from a students parents for the
costs of responding to their threat.
One supporter of the measure, Hilliard
Superintendent John Marschhausen, whose
suburban Columbus district had a student
accused of threatening a school shooting,
described threats an all too frequent reality.
At least half of the Ohio threats last
school year led to evacuations, dismissals
or cancellation of classes or activities,
according to APs analysis.

NEWS
the Department of Environmental Quality
and three with the Department of Health and
Human Services, face a misconduct in office
charge. The felony carries a maximum fiveyear prison term.
Theres no Michigan statute clearly defining official misconduct. The Michigan
Supreme Court has ruled that the charge
applies only to public officers, not all
government workers.
Legal experts expect defense lawyers to
vigorously try to get the misconduct
charges dismissed in the early stages of the
case.
The frequency of evacuations concerns Lt.
Joe Hendry, a veteran Kent State University
police officer and a trainer and consultant
on threat responses. Theres no catch-all
response for schools, he said, but he suggests they consider whether it would be better to evaluate the legitimacy of a threat
before automatically or habitually evacuating.
Besides the disruption, security experts
note that neatly filing out of a building and
gathering masses of people in one place
potentially puts them in further jeopardy if
someone wants to target them.
People intending real violence dont generally call ahead, Hendry said, so Im more
worried about the threat that I dont know
about rather than the threat that I do.
Even the false alarms can have broad consequences, and the prosecutor overseeing
the bomb week cases is trying to drive
home that point.
A handful of students were blamed for
those threats, including a 12-year-old girl.
Fornshell said he would ask a judge to make
those found responsible for evacuations
write handwritten apology letters to each of
the hundreds of affected families in the district perhaps 1,500 or more, depending
on the district in addition to time in juvenile detention or any other discipline.
My hope is that it gives them a better
appreciation of how wide-reaching their
conduct was and how much disruption is
actually caused, Fornshell said.

FIRE
Continued from page 5
the residents were very pleased to know
the Lytle Creek area was open and that those
still under evacuation orders were being
patient.
He said they understand that the evacuation is still for their safety.
Johanna Santore, 63, her husband and
their 10-year-old granddaughter were among
those who learned Sunday they are still not
being permitted to return home.
The familys home and nearly all their
belongings were destroyed in the blaze.
Santores said the family was holding
up, but that Saturday evening when everyone was asleep shed gone outside and cried
thinking of the familys lost pets and
mementoes. The Santores were out running
an errand when the fire broke out and were
unable to return to save anything.
Four dogs, six cats and a hamster left
behind are missing.
Im hoping is someone is stuck around
hiding someplace, Santore said. And if I
start calling, they might recognize our
voices.
In the meantime shes begun looking into
how to replace birth certificates, their housing deed and other important documents
they are unlikely to recover.

CRIME
Continued from page 5
the threat of a felony conviction or prison
time, the Judicial Council found.
It reported that prosecutors also seem to
be filing more charges for felony drug sales,
identity theft and robbery now that drug
possession, writing bad checks and check
forgery were reduced to misdemeanors.
Some DAs offices have tried to charge
their way around Prop. 47, no question
about it, said John Abrahams, co-chairman
of the California Public Defenders
Associations legislative committee.
But California District Attorneys
Association chief executive Mark Zahner
said law enforcement officials may now
simply be targeting more serious criminals.
Lenore Anderson, who led the drive to
pass Proposition 47, was pleased by reports

THE DAILY JOURNAL


A prolonged drought has transformed
swaths of California into tinderboxes,
ready to ignite. Six other wildfires were
burning in the state, including one in San
Luis Obispo County that forced the closure
of the historic Hearst Castle on Saturday. It
remained closed Sunday.
That fire grew to nearly 38 square miles
overnight into Sunday morning and
remained 35 percent contained. Fire
spokeswoman Jaime Garrett said the fire
was growing in the opposite direction of
the Hearst Castle. The castle is a popular
tourist attraction and houses a large art collection that belonged to media magnate
William Randolph Hearst.
In rural Santa Barbara County, a 15square-mile wildfire forced the evacuation of
two campgrounds.
In the southern Sierra Nevada, another
blaze feeding on dense timber in Sequoia
National Forest forced the evacuation of
several tiny hamlets.
In Northern California, fire crews were
gaining control Sunday on an arson fire that
destroyed 189 homes. Officials said the 6square-mile fire in Lower Lake was 95 percent contained.
A nearly monthlong blaze burning near
Californias scene Big Sur is not expected to
be fully contained until the end of
September. Cal Fire said the fire has
destroyed 57 homes and charred 133 square
miles. It is 60 percent contained.
that there may be an overall improvement
in the justice system, even if the initiative
is requiring some adjustment.
Law enforcement should accept that drug
and property crimes still can bring appropriate punishment, while the changes leave
more resources for serious felonies, said
Anderson, president and executive director
of the reform group Californians for Safety
and Justice.
My highest hope is that we start to really see some innovation that we havent
seen in the past, Anderson said.
For instance, this years state budget
includes $15 million for police to experiment with using case managers and diversion programs to help prostitutes and lowlevel drug dealers instead of putting them in
jail.
Without help, theyre released in a short
period of time and go right back to the same
situation, said Sen. Loni Hancock, DBerkeley, who pushed for the funding.
