San Bruno rallies to improve school test scores


Parents, officials collaborate to address poor standardized test performance
By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The performance of San Bruno


elementary school students on the
most recent round of standardized
tests has left parents and officials
dissatisfied and seeking ways to
improve achievement.
Cheryl Olson, superintendent of

the San Bruno Park Elementary


School District, hosted a series of
meetings with concerned parents
in the wake of Smarter Balanced
test scores showing local students
did not perform as well as the rest
of the county.
According to scores on the standardized tests designed to track
comprehension of Common Core

standards, 47 percent of all San


Bruno students met or exceeded
their expected grade level in
English and 42 percent performed
similarly in math. General district
marks were 12 percent worse than
the average across San Mateo
County, and 10 percent worse in
math.
Jessica Reese, a parent at Belle

Air Elementary School, found it


particularly concerning that only
13 percent of the students at her
childs school met or exceeded
their grade level in math and
English respectively, and none of
the schools fifth-graders last year
hit such marks.
Something needs to be done
help the kids at Belle Air because

they are floundering, said Reese.


Reese gathered a group of concerned parents to meet with Olson
and discuss ways to enhance
achievement and support services
for students at the school, but is
disillusioned with the outcomes of
the talks.

Black students take center stage


Social, educational issues come into focus
during federal seminar at Skyline College
By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

A series of open and honest


talks at Skyline College served as
a sounding board for local black
students to address the opportunities and challenges they face while
pursuing a college degree.
The White House Initiative on
Educational Excellence for African
Americans held a summit Friday,
Sept. 30, on the community college campus in San Bruno featuring discussions by school officials and students addressing the
current educational and social
environment for communities of
color.

Students acknowledged the pressures they have come to know


while seeking a degree, as part of
the seminar designed to plumb the
depths of the experience of black
people on college campuses.
The toll it takes to exceed
expectations can be heavy because
you are expected to represent your
entire culture, said Ben Nash, a
student at Chabot College in
Hayward.
Nash spoke alongside fellow
students Jason Martin of Skyline
College; Arin Lopez, who attends
a local middle college program;
Robert Pinkney of San Jose State
University and Millicent Hunter of
San Francisco State University in

a discussion coordinated by director of the federal initiative David


Johns.
Nash advocated for the services
available on community college
campuses to help students cope
with the internal struggles they
may face, but said greater assistance along the way would also be
a tremendous asset.
We need high school counselors to show students that community colleges are good opportunities, he said. You become the
person you are going to be for the
rest of your life in community college.

It was Colma, not Boot Hill, for Wyatt Earp Police reports
Chocolate attack

A 27-year-old transient man was seen


shoplifting a candy bar and then found
to have a misdemeanor warrant at the
100 block of Rollins Road in Millbrae
before 12:20 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28.

MILLBRAE

ugh OBrian, the actor who played


the title role in the long-running
1950s television series The Life
and Legend of Wyatt Earp, died recently,
triggering memories of the real Earps many
Peninsula connections, including his final
resting place.
One could be excused for assuming that
the fabled lawman is buried in a Boot Hill
somewhere, probably Tombstone, Arizona,
where he is eternally connected to the gunfight at the OK Corral. Not so. When it came
to an eternal resting place, Earp picked the
Jewish section at Hills of Eternity in
Colma. Earp, who died in 1929, rests next
to his common law wife, Josie, who was
Jewish and died in 1944. In addition to their
names, the tombstone is inscribed
Nothing is so sacred as honor, and nothing
so loyal as love.
Earp had many Bay Area links. He lived in
San Franciscos Richmond District, according to an 1896 San Francisco Directory.
This was about the time he frequented a
saloon in Redwood City located below the
Alhambra Theater. A photo of Earp standing
next to the bar hangs on the wall at Martins
West gastropub, a popular spot that occupies the site today.
Earp had many callings, including gambler, real estate owner and boxing referee. It
is, however, his fabled ability with a pistol
that made him a legendary lawman. On Oct.
26, 1881, he blazed away in Tombstone in a
confrontation with a gang known as the
cowboys. Three men, all cowboys, died in
the gunfight that actually took place in an
adjacent lot. The showdown has been the
subject of several movies, most notably
John Fords My Darling Clementine, a
1946 offering in which Henry Fonda portrayed Earp. Burt Lancaster and Kevin
Costner played him in later movies.
What brought Earp to Redwood City, a
long way from Tombstone? Legend has it
that he was in town to see his wife perform
in a play in 1896 at the 1, 500-seat
Alhambra, then the biggest showplace
between San Francisco and San Jose.
That account is disputed by Mary Doria
Russell, author of a new book entitled
Epitaph: A Novel of the O.K. Corral,
which weaves a fictional story around the
wife, Josephine Sarah Marcus.

in the Alhambra Bar on Main Street, which
was literally then the main street of the
growing city. The story goes that the photo
was snapped in 1896 on the night of the
Alhambra Theaters debut.
The building is historic in its own right.
It was the last work of architect Arthur Page
Brown, whose earlier structures included the
Ferry Building in San Francisco. Brown died
at his Burlingame home in 1896 following
an accident involving a runaway horse.
The Alhambra Theater, faced with growing
competition from the new movie medium,
went out of business and sold the building to
the Masonic Order in 1921.
The building has had narrow escapes. Its
facade had to be replaced after the 1906

saved and today houses Martins West and

Tourists swamp famously curvy Lombard Street


By Olga R. Rodriguez
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Lombard


Street, the scenic San Francisco
thoroughfare known as the
Crookedest Street in the World,
has become so thronged with
gawkers that residents say it feels
more like an overcrowded amusement park than a residential road.
City transit leaders are considering possible solutions, including
charging a toll, requiring reservations, adding more parking-control officers and encouraging visitors to reach the single-lane street

on foot or by cable car.


In the summer months, an estimated 6,000 people per day visit
the street, which offers views of
the city that are as beautiful as the
road is winding.
There have been days when you
have 250 people at the bottom of
the street taking pictures and hundreds of people up and down the
sidewalks and another hundred at
the top, said Greg Brundage, who
has lived on the hilly street for 20
years. Its a mob scene.
Sightseers have visited the landmark road for decades, but in the
past four or five years, they have

flooded it. Cars waiting to drive


down the 600-foot-long street
often stretch back for three
blocks, clogging the Russian Hill
neighborhood, residents said.
The curvy street wasnt intended
to be a tourist attraction.
Residents built the hairpin turns
on the red brick road in 1922
because its 27-degree grade was
too steep for the eras cars to
climb. Neighbors added the lush
gardens filled with hydrangeas and
roses 30 years later.
The sweeping views and the fact
that a cable car stops at the top of
the street contributed to its popu-

larity. Its worldwide fame only


increased after it was featured in
movies and commercials.
The recent congestion has been
compounded by tour buses that
drop off hordes of tourists in the
morning, leaving them to wander
the residential area for up to two
hours, residents said.
A lot of airplanes from Asia
arrive early in the morning, and
tourists cant check into their
hotels, so the buses pick them up,
bring them down here and drop
them off for an hour, two hours,
and it doesnt cost them anything, said Brundage, who heads

the Lombard Hill Improvement


Association, which pays for the
streets upkeep.
Lombard Streets visitor overload coincides with a tourism
spike in San Francisco, which
welcomed 24 million visitors in
2015, compared with 18 million
in 2010, according to city figures.
Residents say they are not
equipped to handle an increasingly chaotic scene where visitors
leave behind trash, pick flowers
from the landscaping, disregard
signs, use doorways as toilets and,

Police investigate possible


lewd conduct with girl, 14
Police in Palo Alto are investigating a
possible lewd conduct incident that occurred
Friday at a city park.
On Friday around 4 p.m., a woman contacted the Palo Alto Police Department to
report a man had possibly exposed himself
to her 14-year-old daughter at Bol Park at
3590 Laguna Ave.
Officers responded to the area, but the subject was gone, police said.
Police said the 14-year-old had been riding her bicycle through the park around
3:45 p.m. when she noticed a man seated on
a nearby bench.
As she continued past the man, she
noticed the man had pulled down his shorts,

in unincorporated San Mateo County,
according to preliminary information from
the California Highway Patrol.
The crash was reported at 5:21 p.m. on

a San Mateo homeowner caught the man
inside her house, according to police.
Around 11:25 a.m., officers responded to
a report of an interrupted burglary happening at a home in the 400 block of Sylvan
Avenue, police said.
The homeowner had come home and saw
that a screen had been removed from a window of the house. The man then fled the residence, running out the front door, police
said. When the homeowner tried to chase
after the suspect, neighbors heard the commotion and quickly responded.

police in a suburb of San Diego, was remembered in a demonstration Saturday organized
by clergy members and supporters of
Olangos family.
Several hundred people gathered peacefully at a park in downtown El Cajon to hear
speeches by religious leaders and then
marched through the streets to police headquarters, where Olangos family members
were expected to join them.
Mourning is a public sharing of grief and
his unnecessary killing has rent the fabric
of our human community yet once again and
we are feeling it deeply in our hearts, said
Rev. Frank Placone-Willey of Summit
Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in nearby Santee, California.
The event came a day after two videos of
the shooting were released by authorities,
something the family and community leaders had urged.
The videos show the officer fired four
times at close range almost immediately
after Olango, 38, suddenly raised both
hands to chest level and took what was

described as a shooting stance. In addition


to the videos, police showed the 4-inch
electronic cigarette device Olango had in
his hands when he was shot.
The shots came less than a minute after
police arrived at the scene in response to
Olangos sister calling 911 and reporting
he was acting erratically.
The videos were released after nights of
unruly and, at times, violent protests in El
Cajon. On Thursday night, an officer was
struck in the head by a brick hurled by a protester.
Our only concern at this point was community safety, police Chief Jeff Davis
said. We felt that the aggression of some
some of the protesters was escalating
to the point where it was necessary to
release some information and truly, it was
my hope to relieve some of that concern.
A fourth night of protests on Friday
remained peaceful, with about 200 people
blocking intersections and at one point
attempting to walk on to a freeway before
police stopped them.
A lawyer for the family said they welcomed the release of the videos, but he ques-

Clinton could beat Trump by carrying one state


By Thomas Beaumont
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RALEIGH, N.C. Republican


Donald Trump can do little to stop
Democrat Hillary Clinton from
winning the presidency if she carries North Carolina, where their
close race reflects the national liabilities of both candidates.
Trump is struggling with conservative Democrats, especially
women in the big and booming
suburbs of Charlotte and RaleighDurham, whove long been part of
the GOPs winning formula in
North Carolina.
Clinton has her own worries:
Younger voters who helped Barack
Obama win the state in 2008 and
come close in 2012 are far more
hesitant to back her.
In a scenario playing out across
the most contested states,
Clintons pursuit of new supporters is aided by a huge, data-driven
ground force in North Carolina,
while Trump is sticking with his
come-what-may plan.
Both candidates have problems
here, said Paul Shumaker, an
adviser to U.S. Sen. Richard Burr,
R-N.C., who is seeking re-election. But I think the Clinton people are more attuned about fixing
their problems than Trumps are.
Clinton, in a visit Sunday to
Charlotte, addressed congregants
at a black church less than two
weeks after the police-involved
shooting death of a black man.

The shooting
led to two
nights of violent protests
and a debate
over race relations.
Weve got to
take
action.
Weve got to Hillary Clinton
start now, not
tomorrow. Not next year, now,
Clinton said.
Polls suggest North Carolina,
Ohio and Florida are among the
most competitive states expected
to decide the final steps on the
path to the 270 electoral votes
required to win the White House.
In all but one of the past nine
presidential
elections,
the
Republican nominee has taken
North Carolina. Clintons apparent strength in once reliably
Republican Virginia and swing
state Colorado may mean a perilously narrow route to an electoral majority for Trump.

Ohio and Florida


If Clinton captures North
Carolina, Trump would have to
carry perennially tight Ohio and
Florida, plus Democrat-leaning
Pennsylvania, and sweep less
populous close states that appear
increasingly out of reach.
Shumaker says GOP support for
Trump is lower than usual in North
Carolina, as estimated in private
GOP and public polling. 2012

nominee Mitt Romney received


more than 90 percent of the GOP
vote in North Carolina, according
to exit polls; Trump appears
markedly short of that.
Trump promised to win over
conservative Democrats, who are
common in Cary, a suburb of
roomy brick homes and newer
retail developments west of
Raleigh.
Such a voter is Sunday Petrov,
who is grudgingly backing
Clinton. Its more like Im voting against Trump, she said.
What bothers me most is his disrespect for Hispanics, for
Muslims, his unprofessional
demeanor.
Trump has little outreach aimed
at specific voter groups in North
Carolina; Clinton does. She needs
it with younger people, with
whom her polling margins pale
next to Obamas in 2008 and
2012.
After last Mondays debate with
Trump, she pleaded her case during
a rally at Wake Tech Community
College. The election, she said,
is more about the future of young
people and children than its ever
been, and she talked about her
plan for government-subsidized,
tuition-free college. Later in the
week,
Clintons
daughter,
Chelsea, visited Asheville and
Greenville, stopping at Eastern
Carolina University to focus on
college debt.
North Carolina feels like

Virginia in 2012, said Dan


Kanninen, the Clinton campaigns top adviser in the state.
Obama won Virginia in 2008
and 2012, after 10 consecutive
GOP victories there, by attracting
younger, ethnically diverse and
more educated adults, especially
those flowing into northern
Virginias tech and defense sectors.
Clinton is putting that same
strategy to work in North
Carolina. Universities, high-tech
companies such as Cisco Systems
and the financial sector, including
Fidelity
Investments,
have
attracted thousands of young professionals to the Raleigh area
alone since 2012.

College educated
In the past four years, North
Carolina has added roughly
300,000 voters, mostly in metropolitan areas that account for half
of the states vote. They are predominantly
college-educated,
which is good news for Clinton in
a close race.
Trumps biggest problem is
college-educated whites, said
Republican strategist Michael
Luethy, who charts legislative
races.
If he solves his problem there,
he wins. Easier said than done, he
said.
Perhaps the biggest unknown
heading into the Nov. 8 election
is whether African-Americans will

turn out for Clinton at near the


historic levels they twice did for
Obama, the first black president.
Clinton
dominates Trump
among African-Americans, who
make up 22 percent of North
Carolinas voters, the biggest
share of any of battleground state.
Trump has done little to turn
around long-standing support for
Democrats by black voters.
Clinton has organizers on or
near campuses of the states 12
historically black colleges and
universities.
Moreover, early-voting restrictions enacted in 2013 by North
Carolinas Republican-controlled
Legislature and GOP Gov. Pat
McCrory were overturned after
being ruled discriminatory toward
black voters.
McCrory is up for re-election in
November and trails Democrat
Roy Cooper in a rare case where a
down-ballot race could generate
turnout for the presidential campaign.
I think Democratic intensity
on that issue the attempt at
voter suppression is going to
keep African-American turnout at
the levels weve had lately, said
Ken Eudy, a Democratic campaign
strategist.
Shumaker, the GOP senators
aide, said that may be enough to
lift Clinton in a close race.
Its going to come down to the
wire, he said. And were a 2point state.

Why wasnt New Jerseys Christie charged in Bridgegate?


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TRENTON, N.J. It was seven


days into the trial in the George
Washington Bridge lane-closing
case when the governments key
witness dropped the bombshell:
Gov. Chris Christie, he said, was
told about the traffic jams while

they were going on.


Christie, David Wildstein told
the jury last week, responded with
a laugh and a joke about the role
politics played. The accusation
blared in headlines across the
country and immediately raised
one question: Why wasnt the
Republican governor charged?

First off, the governor denies he


did anything wrong or that he
knew about the political revenge
plot, often dubbed Bridgegate,
that Wildstein says was tied to his
2013 re-election campaign.
Then theres Wildsteins testimony, in which he never says that
Christie was directly told about

the plot. Wildstein said that defendant Bill Baroni told the governor
about the traffic jams and that the
mayor wasnt happy that he wasnt getting his calls returned.
Wildstein testified Baroni told the
governor that Wildstein was monitoring the situation and the governor made what he took as a sar-

castic joke regarding the Wally


Edge pseudonym that Wildstein
blogged under.
Former prosecutors say the
answer is pretty simple. Theres
nothing in that testimony that
would be evidence to convict

Gender equality in 2016? Its complicated


By David Crary
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

For weeks after the vote, the


abuse kept coming: Venomous,
sexist phone calls and emails,
venting rage at the five women on
Seattles City Council who outvoted four men to derail a sports
arena project.
Disgraceful hag was one of the
milder messages. Go home and
climb in the oven, one councilor
was told.
This unfolded not in 1966, during an era when American women
mobilized en masse to demand
equality, but 50 years later in May
of 2016 two months before the
first woman was nominated to lead
a major partys presidential ticket.
Its a complicated time for gender relations in the U.S., as the
campaign pitting Hillary Clinton
against Donald Trump has underscored most recently, with the
fallout from their first debate and a
sharp exchange about Trumps

attention to a former Miss


Universe and her weight.
On one hand theres been great
progress toward equality. Women
hold the top jobs at IBM and
General Motors, for example.
They were recently approved to
serve in all military combat jobs,
and its possible, depending on
the election outcome, that troops
could soon be saluting the first
female commander in chief.
At the same time, deep and obvious gaps remain not only in
terms of economic inequality and
continuing workplace discrimination, but in everyday actions and
conversations.
Consider this years reboot of
Ghostbusters, with women
replacing the male leads of the
original. Misogynistic comments
circulated on social media demanding the films stars appear nude or
be hot.
Or the way some sports commentators belittled womens
accomplishments at the Rio

Olympics.
Or the backlash in, of all places,
progressive Seattle, after the five
female councilors voted against
the proposed sale of a street to
help make way for a new arena that
could host an NBA team.
One local attorney, in a signed
email to all five women, said, I
can only hope that you each find
ways to quickly and painfully end
yourselves.
Council
member
Lorena
Gonzalez, a lawyer who has represented victims of sexual abuse,
said the controversy hit a nerve
because it coincided with a presidential campaign that has exacerbated gender tensions.
In
many
male-dominated
domains, womens strides have
been slow-paced and, even then,
greeted with resentment.
Cultural change often comes
with some backlash, said Emily
Martin, the National Womens
Law Centers general counsel.
Some people feel threatened by

womens progress.
That culture clash has become
striking in this election year. As
feminists celebrated Clintons
glass-shattering nomination with
the slogan Im With Her, Trump
claimed the only thing Clinton
had going for her was the
womans card. Some of his supporters wear Trump that Bitch Tshirts.
Polls
show
Clinton,
a
Democrat, benefiting from a gender gap thats been a fact of
American politics since 1980,
with women voting for her party
more reliably than men in each
presidential election. This years
gap could be the biggest ever; a
New York Times poll in midSeptember showed Trump, a
Republican, leading among likely
male voters by 11 percentage
points, while Clinton led among
likely female voters by 13 points.
Brooke Ackerly, a political science professor at Vanderbilt, said
the sexist sentiments on display

during the campaign arent new to


American politics, but are louder
and more visible.
It suggests to me theres some
latent anger thats being given
permission to express itself, said
Ackerly, depicting Trump as the
catalyst for this. Whats new is
that were seeing it in public.
Clinton, of course, has been targeted by sexist taunts for many
years, and says she takes them in
stride.
Still, said Debbie Walsh, director of the Center for American
Women and Politics at Rutgers
University, Im concerned about
what it means for younger women
who see this as what you might
confront if you dare to tread on
what is seen as male turf.
Indeed,
elective
politics
remains predominantly male turf.
Women comprise more than half
the U.S. population, yet account
for just a fifth of all members of
Congress and one-fourth of state
lawmakers.

After being suspended, whats


next for Alabama chief justice?
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MONTGOMERY, Ala. Alabama Chief


Justice Roy Moore built his career on defiance, and it has cost him his job twice.
A disciplinary panel that removed him
from office 13 years ago over a Ten
Commandments monument suspended him
Friday for the remainder of his term for defying the federal courts on gay marriage.
The court ruled that Moore wrongly urged
68 state probate judges to stop complying
with binding federal law when he told them
in January that they remained bound by a
2015 state court order to refuse marriage
licenses to gay couples.
Long a symbol of the culture wars after
his Ten Commandments fight, the outspoken Republican judge is now focused on
appealing his suspension. He said he doesnt know what will happen next.
No one expects Moore to fade quietly into
obscurity, said Wayne Flynt, a historian
who has written several books on Alabama.
It makes him a martyr, said Flynt, noting that he wouldnt be surprised if Moore
made another bid for governor or became
some national media figure being to reli-

gion what Rush Limbaugh is to national


politics.
Make no mistake about it, there are a lot
of people in Iowa who feel exactly the same
way that he does about homosexual marriage, and the Ten Commandments and
prayer in school and all of that, Flynt said.
In an interview with The Associated
Press, Moore insisted he did nothing wrong
and this was not an act of defiance.
As I said very plainly before the court of
the judiciary, I do not believe its the role of
a judge to tell anyone to violate a court
order. I wouldnt do that, Moore said. All
I said was these orders existed.
Moore is a West Point graduate with a
habit of reciting from memory long passages of scripture and historical documents.
He was a little known country judge in
Etowah County until the American Civil
Liberties Union unsuccessfully sued him
over
a
handmade
wooden
Ten
Commandment plaque he hung on his courtroom wall. The fame propelled him to the
office of chief justice in the 2000 election.
After his 2003 removal, Moore made two
failed bids for governor and teetered on the
brink of political oblivion.

Syrian military calls on Aleppo rebels to surrender


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEIRUT Syrian rebels and


pro-government forces clashed
Sunday on several fronts around
Aleppo as the countrys military
command called on militants to
lay down their weapons and evacuate the contested city.
A day after pro-government
forces captured the strategic alShuqeef hill north of the city, the
Britain-based Syrian Observatory
for Human Rights monitoring
group reported fierce fighting in
areas near the hill and in the
Bustan al-Basha neighborhood.
The two sides also clashed in
Aleppos southern Sheikh Saeed
neighborhood.
The governments attempt to

Bashar Assad

penetrate
Aleppos opposition-held
eastern side has
been accompanied
by
a
relentless campaign
of
airstrikes by
Russian
and
Syrian
war-

planes.
President Bashar Assads forces
are depending on the Russia bombardment and Iran-backed militias
for support.
A spokesman for the Nour elDin el-Zinki rebel faction told The
Associated Press that foreign
fighters were actively participating in the governments ground

campaign. He said rebels could


identify Lebanese and Iraqi militias by their flags.
An airstrike, meanwhile, targeted a rebel headquarters near the
central city of Hama, killing at
least
six
militants,
the
Observatory said. It was a setback
for the rebel campaign to advance
on the government-controlled
city.
The U.N.s humanitarian chief,
Stephen OBrien, reported that
eastern Aleppos health system
has been all but obliterated by
shelling and bombardment.
Medical facilities are being hit
one by one, OBrien said in a
statement that called for a 48-hour
humanitarian pause to the fighting each week. The U.N. estimates

275,000 people are trapped by the


government siege.
We are in a race against time to
protect and save civilians in eastern Aleppo city. They need our
urgent action to bring an end to
their living hell, OBrien said.
One of Aleppos largest hospitals, located in the eastern
Sakhour neighborhood, was
knocked out of service Saturday by
the airstrikes, doctors and
activists reported.
The Syrian military command
said in a statement on state media
that government forces would
guarantee gunmen safe passage
out of opposition-held neighborhoods.
Russia announced a month ago
that the Syrian government would

give safe passage to civilians


wanting to leave eastern Aleppo.
Few have accepted the offer.
The U.N. says at least 320 civilians have been killed since the
government announced its offensive Sept. 22. The European
Union offered to help evacuate
patients in Aleppos hospitals and
deliver food, water and medical aid
to besieged eastern districts.
EU foreign policy chief
Frederica Mogherini urged international players to unite to make
the aid effort work for the sake of
humanity and the political future
of Syria. The EU is mobilizing
$25 million in emergency aid and
offering to move patients to other
medical facilities, including in
Europe, if needed.

Powerful hurricane threatens Haiti, Jamaica, Cuba Colombias peace deal on


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti An
extremely dangerous Hurricane
Matthew moved slowly over the
Caribbean on Sunday following a
track that authorities warned could
trigger devastation in parts of
Haiti.
The powerful Category 4 hurricane had winds of 145 mph (230
kph) at late afternoon and the center was expected to pass across or
very close to the southwestern tip
of Haiti late Monday before reaching Cuba on Tuesday, the U.S.
National Hurricane Center in
Miami said.
A hurricane warning was in
effect for Jamaica, Cuba and Haiti.
Forecasters said the southern
Haitian
countryside
around

Jeremie and Les Cayes could see


the worst of it.
Wherever that center passes
close to would see the worst winds
and thats whats projected to happen for the western tip of Haiti,
said John Cangilosi, a hurricane
specialist at the U. S. center.
There is a big concern for rains
there and also a big concern for
storm surge.
Matthew is one of the most powerful Atlantic hurricanes in recent
history and briefly reached the top
classification,
Category
5,
becoming the strongest hurricane
in the region since Felix in 2007.
The hurricane center said the storm
appeared to be on track to pass
east of Florida through the
Bahamas, but it was too soon to
predict with certainty whether it

would reach the U.S. coast.


Officials with Haitis civil protection agency said there were
roughly 1,300 emergency shelters
across the country, enough to hold
up to 340,000 people. Authorities
broadcast warnings over the radio
telling people to swiftly heed
evacuation warnings, trying to
counter a common tendency for
people to try to stay in their
homes to protect them during natural disasters.
The shelters are open but I
dont believe we have anyone
inside them just yet, said Joseph
Edgard Celestin, a spokesman for
the civil protection agency.
In a Sunday address carried on
state radio, interim President
Jocelerme Privert urged Haitians
to listen closely to the warnings.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BOGOTA,
Colombia

Colombias peace deal with leftist


rebels was on the verge of collapsing in a national referendum
Sunday, with those opposing the
deal leading by a razor-thin margin
with almost all votes counted.
Polls taken before the national
referendum, in which voters were
asked whether they wanted to ratify or reject a deal ending a half
century of hostilities with the
Revolutionary Armed Forces of
Colombia, had pointed to the
yes vote winning by an almost
two-to-one margin.
But with more than 99 percent of
polling stations reporting, 50.2

just 49.8 percent favored it a


difference of less than 63, 000
votes out of 13 million ballots.
The surprise outcome opens an
uncertain outlook for the peace
accord and is a major blow to
President Juan Manuel Santos,
who ever since being elected in
2010 had vowed to put an end to a
half-century conflict that killed
220,000 and displaced almost 8
million.
Opposition to the accord, led
by influential former President
Alvaro Uribe, argued that the
government was appeasing the
FARC and setting a bad example
that criminal gangs would seize
on.

Solving the drought issue
Editor,
The article Law to crack down on
water guzzlers: Gov. Jerry Brown
signs state Sen. Jerry Hills droughtinspired legislation in the Sept. 1
edition of the Daily Journal, talked
about state Sen. Hills bill about ning those who consumed excessive
amounts of water. There are two issues
with this bill: First, we must dene
what excessive means in terms of
water. Secondly, the bill will not go
into effect until Jan. 1. Consequently,
there will be a delay before the framework is in place to detect excessive
water usage. This is just another bill
that will cost money and accomplish
little.
The real problem, according to Dr.
Victor Hanson, is that 75 percent of
water that falls as rain goes back into
the ocean. Also, scarce aqueduct water
is still being diverted to the sea. Not
a single new reservoir has been built
in California since the drought
began. The drought could go on for
ve years or more. What should we
do?
Another issue posed by the drought
is the health of our forest. We are losing 60 percent to 70 percent of our
trees to bark beetle there is no way
to stop beetle destruction without
more water. If the drought continues,
well have to get water from outside
the state. We already have conservation efforts in place. So, bringing
water to California like we bring oil
and other imports is an easy thing to
do why dont we?

Rent control will help


Editor,
Members of the San Mateo Adult
School Federation of Teachers voted
recently to support rent control measures Q and R. Ive worked as a teacher
in San Mateo for 30 years and have
never seen such stress among students and teachers over housing. The
students, cooks, janitors, gardeners,
nannies and construction workers of
this community are moving out,
unable to survive San Mateos rising
rents. Even community college teachers, among the areas best paid teachers, are in ever increasing numbers
forced to seek housing distant from
their schools.
The staggering rise in housing
costs deprives people of the right to a
decent shelter. Homelessness has
become an epidemic, and many of
those who can still afford a roof have
to move from the area they work or
cut their living and eating expenses
to the bone. It is a basic function of
society to make necessities of life
like food, education, health care and

Growing support for Measure Q


Editor,
Sue Lempert concluded her column,
Renters Proposition 13 (on the
Sept. 19 edition of the Daily
Journal), by mentioning that the
League of Women Voters of North and
Central San Mateo County has
endorsed Measures Q and R. This got
my attention, as the League has a reputation for considering issues carefully before taking a position.
Measure Q is also supported by a
wide range of other endorsers, including the San Mateo County
Democratic Central Committee, the
San Mateo County Central Labor
Council, city council member David
Lim, members of our city's Planning
and Sustainability Commissions,
local faith leaders, and many others.
Several local teachers' unions have
also recently endorsed the measure.
These endorsements indicate the
severity of the rental crisis and the
community members who are impacted; they include teachers, childcare
workers, seniors, rst responders, and
others who are being forced to leave
due to evictions and exorbitant rent
increases. Measure Q will help many
of them to stay.
The measure will not help everyone
nor will it solve all of San Mateo's
housing problems. We also need better policies to increase the supply of
affordable housing. However, this is a
crisis and we cannot wait ve or more
years for those policies, if enacted, to
have an effect. Help cannot come
soon enough for families who have
lived here for decades, but are just one
rent increase away from being pushed
out. Measure Q would protect our
community from losing vital members who help it thrive.

Can I share something with you?


Editor,
I dont like taxes. I always vote
against them. The government has
enough money and needs to nd more
efcient ways to spend it. We spend
trillions to ght wars, and trillions
paying for healthcare for people that
cant afford it.
But that isnt what I want to share

What I want to share is something

after careful consideration and deliberation, I think it necessary.
Im voting yes on Measure I to

and Im even helping promote it.
I understand where no voters are
coming from, thats usually me. Sales
tax nope. Parcel tax nope. Bond
nope. Unless its for schools, one
of the governments most essential
jobs is to fund schools. Unless its
for roads because one of the governments most essential jobs is to build
and maintain our infrastructure
roads, storm drains, sewers.
Im not going to tell you the condition of Belmonts roads, you know.
What you may not know is that
unlike the federal government, our
Belmont city government is a careful
steward of our taxes, frugal with its
spending. About 60 percent of the
budget goes towards public safety.
Belmont doesnt even have an assistant city manager to save money.
Belmont recently started sharing re
services with other cities to save
even more money.
The money to x the roads must

dont we.

Oh those ads! Is it
about them or you?

his is the season when we are bombarded by a


series of confusing ads, campaign slogans and
promises.
The ads will say you need to do this to protect children,
seniors, schools and taxpayers. But if you read the small
print about the funders, you realize it is all about their
interests and maybe not yours.
Especially perplexing are the radio ads blasting billionaires for trying to ruin or take over our schools. This may
be an attack on charter schools but also a warning from
the powerful California Teachers Association about candidates who accept money
from these wealthy busy
bodies and do not follow
the CTA line.
***
Opponents of rent control initiatives in
Burlingame and San Mateo
are spending a lot of
money to tell voters these
measures will cost taxpayers millions and siphon
money away from critical
city services like re,
police and schools. It will
be costly, but primarily for
landlords, and not for you
or me. The ads highlight a
list of scary outcomes if these measures pass but only pay
lip service to the major objection that these measures will
not solve our immediate affordable housing crisis and will
not help people who are looking for reasonably priced
housing. Just like Proposition 13, these measures will
help longtime and current occupants from huge rent
increases and eviction. This is an emotional and nancial
issue for both sides apartment owners and their tenants
who are feeling the heat. If these measures are defeated
and, with the amount of money spent against them, its
very possible, lets hope the cities follow the advice of
local landlord Mike Aydelott who wrote in a letter to the
Daily Journal: We would rather see community stakeholders convene and nd common ground outside of the draconian initiative process. This conversation should be
facilitated by our elected ofcials to provide a voice to all
citizens. And it should include immediate relief for
renters.
***
Statewide, it is even more perplexing with so many
propositions on the ballot and so many confusing arguments for and against. Make sure you know who is funding these campaigns. Find your magnifying glass and read
the small print.
The one cent increase in the soda tax measure is really a
tax on all food say the no ads. Unfortunately for the soda
industry, the proponents have a great ad which reminds us
it is not nice to lie. We dont vote on this but voters in
San Francisco and Oakland do.
Proposition 56: The tobacco industry is spending millions to defeat this measure arguing falsely that it will
undermine the states school funding guarantee. CTA is
supporting so you know it doesnt mean less money for
schools. It would increase cigarette taxes and redirect revenue to health care for low-income Californians.
Proposition 61 is the poster child for why voters should
not be asked to decide issues which are technical and complex. This is really a battle between the pharmaceutical
and insurance giants. It may depend on whom you hate
less.
Proposition 67 is an attempt by the plastic bag industry
to remove the ban on plastic bags which was passed by
the Legislature and signed by the governor in 2014 and
which most of us have all gotten used to. The industry
led Proposition 67 to hold up implementation of the law.
Proposition 65, which says if Proposition 67 passes,
then grocery stores cannot keep the small change charged
for reusable bags and instead these funds would go to a
special fund for environmental purposes. Honestly, plastic bag manufacturers, we are not that stupid. But it is confusing. The industry wants you to vote no on 67. Ignore
the rhetoric and vote yes so a much-needed law can go into
effect.

Britain will launch Brexit by April


By Danica Kirka
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LONDON Britain will trigger


the formal process for leaving the
European Union before the end of
March, Prime Minister Theresa
May said Sunday, putting to rest
weeks of speculation on the timing of the move.
May outlined her vision for a
post-EU
Britain
at
her
Conservative Partys annual conference in Birmingham and took
the first steps to making a British
exit or Brexit a reality.
As her fellow lawmakers
applauded wildly, May made it
clear that the British people
expected to see the moment on
the horizon when Britain would
leave and that she was going to
deliver.
We will invoke it when we are
ready, and we will be ready soon,
she said. We will invoke Article
50 no later than the end of March
next year.
While the prime minister previously had hinted she planned to
initiate Britains EU exit early
next year, many observers had
speculated she would wait until
Frances presidential election ends
in May or perhaps even the
Germany elections, set for the late
summer or fall of next year.
But May insisted there would be

no unnecessary delays in bringing


it to pass and that it would fight
any legal challenges intended to
derail the move. She sternly
rejected the idea that the government would circumvent the result,
making a face as she raised the
idea to underscore her disdain.
Britain voted in a June referendum to leave the EU, but has not
formally notified the bloc of its
intentions by invoking the article
of the EU treaty that would trigger
negotiations. Doing so will
launch two years of talks to work
out the details of Britains future
relationship with the single market.

Two-year timetable
While the two-year timetable is
mandated by the EU treaty, it can
be extended by a unanimous vote
of the remaining members of the
bloc.
The prime minister also said she
would ask Parliament to repeal the
European Communities Act, which
automatically makes EU rules the
law of the land in Britain.
May said her government
instead would incorporate all EU
laws into British law and then
repeal measures as necessary on a
case-by-case basis.
That means that the United
Kingdom will be an independent,
sovereign nation, she said. It

will be making its own laws.


May said that by offering a
timetable now, she hopes to
encourage the two sides to engage
in preliminary work that would
help the negotiations go smoothly once they begin. EU leaders so
far have rejected any such discussions.
The president of the 28-nation
EUs
governing
European
Council, Donald Tusk, offered a
tweet in support of her position.
He had told her at a recent
Downing Street meeting that the
ball is now in your court.
PM Mays declaration brings
welcome clarity on start of Brexit
talks, he tweeted Sunday. Once
Art. 50s triggered, EU27 will
engage to safeguard its interests.
One of the biggest sticking
points in any talks will be immigration. The free movement of
labor is a founding principle of
the EU, and millions of EU citizens live and work in Britain.

Immigrants
The perception that immigrants
have strained public services and
changed the face of many communities was a factor for many
British citizens who voted to
leave the EU. May said that she
intends to heed public opinion on
that point.
Apart from the message of

leaving the European Union, I


think there was also a clear message from the British people that
they wanted us to control movement of people from the EU coming into the UK, so we will deliver
on that, she said.
May also flatly rejected the idea
that elements within the United
Kingdom might be able to negotiate a deal for themselves. The message was clearly aimed at
Scotland, which only narrowly
rejected an independence move in
2014 and had voted overwhelmingly to stay in the EU. Scotland
wants a place at the table because
of its numerous trade ties with the
EU.
We will negotiate as one United
Kingdom and we will leave the
European Union as one United
Kingdom. There is no opt-out for
Brexit, May told the conference.
I will never allow divisive
nationalists to undermine the precious union between the four
nations of our United Kingdom.
Critics quickly pounced on the
first tangible moves on the
process in weeks. Conservative
Anna Soubry, a former minister
who is in the Tory pro-Europe
wing of the party, told ITV that
she was concerned that May would
trigger the article so soon, warning that companies such as Nissan
might leave without a deal on the

single market.
Triggering Brexit as early as
March really concerns me, troubles me hugely, because we wont
have had the French elections, we
wont have had the German elections, and Im sorry, it is going to
take a lot of time and effort to disentangle ourselves and get the
right deal, she said.
The other thing thats got to be
said is this this idea that we
hold the cards and that the EU is
going to come to us and say do
you know what, well give you
pretty much what you want,
the idea were going to get anything like weve got now is rubbish.

More clarity
The opposition Labour Party
asked for more clarity on the proposals. Stephen Kinnock, a member of Parliament from Aberavon,
said May has yet to say what leaving will mean in practice.
The Brexit process will give
this government more power to reshape Britain than any government has had since the Second
World War, he said in a statement.
And yet what Brexit means is
still unclear, and the government
has no specific mandate for its
negotiating position, assuming
that it has one.

Trump tax return shows disparity in system


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DENVER The leak of some


of Donald Trumps tax returns
highlights enormous disparities
in the tax code between highincome businesses and individuals and everyone else that may
have allowed the Republican
presidential nominee to avoid
paying federal income taxes for

nearly 20 years.
Trump claimed more than $900
million in losses in 1995,
enough to legally reduce his tax
bill to zero for as many as 18
years, the New York Times reported on Sunday after receiving three
pages of what appeared to be
Trumps tax returns filed in three
states that year. Trump has broken
with precedent and refused to

release his tax returns during his


presidential campaign, making it
impossible to fully assess his
finances and history of tax payments. But the 1995 loss likely
lowered his future payments significantly or eliminated them
altogether, because provisions in
the tax code let businesses deduct
losses from future income,
decreasing the amount they and

their owners will owe to the federal government in coming years.


Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders
told CNN on Sunday that Trumps
taxes are exactly why so many
millions of Americans are frustrated, they are angry, they are disgusted at what they see is a corrupt
political system in this country.
Tax experts said the self-proclaimed democratic socialist may

be onto something.
The tax code treats very rich
people who own businesses differently from the way it treats everyone else, said Neil H. Buchanan,
an economist and tax law professor at George Washington
University, noting that people
cant deduct losses on their homes
even when they sell them for less
than the purchase price.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. When a loved one


dies, laws cover how their houses, cars, and
other property are passed on to relatives.
But the rules are murkier and currently far
more restrictive when it comes to pictures on Facebook, emails to friends or relatives and even financial records stored in
online cloud accounts.
Google, Facebook and other companies
have said a federal privacy law approved
decades before digital storage became common prevents them from releasing electronic memories or records unless the account
owner grants permission even if the person is dead. Without an estate plan, families
must try to crack their loved ones passwords or take the costly step of litigating
the matter to access photos and emails
and some have, with little success.
The laws governing how to divide
belongings after someone dies have not
caught up with the technological advances
that have permeated the ways people communicate, but states have begun trying to
bridge that gap. This year, Illinois was one
of 19 states that passed similar laws to clarify what internet companies can release
after someone dies and when information
should remain inaccessible.
I post quite a bit on Facebook. I post a
lot of photos. If something were to happen
to me, maybe my wife would like to have

access to those photos, said Rep. Emanuel


Chris Welch, a state legislator from suburban Chicago who sponsored Illinois measure on the topic.
With the new laws, unless a person
expresses otherwise, companies will
release basic information from a user, such
as the persons email contact list, to help
find friends or gather an inventory of a persons assets. But to get the actual contents
of the emails even the subject lines or
photos and documents stored in a cloud
service, people must proactively specify
who they want to have their digital belongings.
The federal Electronic Communications
Privacy Act, passed in 1986, doesnt anticipate the release of online information when
executing wills. Because probate law is typically left to the states, the laws legislatures
are passing could effectively set new rules.
The Chicago-based Uniform Law
Commission wrote the legislation states
are passing with the support of internet
companies, but that wasnt always the
case. Initially, the commission wanted
administrators of a persons estate to have
access to everything from users accounts
in cases where someone did not leave
instructions about what to do with their
digital assets.
Only one state, Delaware, managed to
pass that version of the commissions proposal, but 27 legislatures tried and failed in
2014.

CSM quarterback Chris Zogrofos fights for a touchdown in the closing minutes of Saturdays 40-13 loss at American River College.

Dogs dealt landslide loss


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

It wasnt the debut College of San Mateo


sophomore transfer Chris Zogrofos envisioned. But the hometown kid made the most
of his brief opportunity nonetheless.
With CSM (2-3 overall) getting buried in a
landslide 40-13 loss at American River
College, the Bulldogs third-string quarterback and San Mateo native Zogrofos entered
the game for garbage minutes late in the
fourth quarter to bring at least some cheers
to the CSM sideline.

American River 40, CSM 13


Following American Rivers final score of
the evening a 22-yard field goal by freshman Max ORourke to cap a cool 40 points
for the Beavers Zogrofos marched onto
the field for his CSM debut, leading the
Bulldogs downfield in five plays and punctuating it with a 13-yard scoring run. It was a
gutsy one at that. Taking on an American
River defender at the end of an option-read
bootleg, Zogrofos pushed his way through
the wall to bite off the corner of the end zone
just inside the pylon.

A 2011 graduate of San Mateo High School,


Zogrofos hadnt seen live football action
since 2012 during his freshman season at
Foothill College. He walked away from the
gridiron after that season with the birth of his
daughter Athena. After two years of not knowing whether hed ever set foot on the field
again, he was all business Saturday regarding
his mission of energizing his squad.

49ers fast start doesnt hold up in loss to Cowboys


By Josh Dubow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SANTA CLARA For the first two drives of


the game, Chip Kellys offense was clicking
for the 49ers. Blaine Gabbert made big throws,
the running game was productive and the team
converted third downs with ease.
After jumping out to a quick 14-point lead,
everything seemed to stall and the Niners
stumbled to their third straight loss, falling
24-17 to the Cowboys Sunday.
We just couldnt keep that momentum
going, left tackle Joe Staley said. It was very
frustrating. It was just one of those games.
The performance over the final three quarters
is becoming all too familiar to the 49ers, who
have struggled to generate much consistent
offense in their first year running Kellys uptempo, spread system.
After gaining 143 yards, scoring two touchdowns and all six third-down opportunities in
the first two drives, San Francisco was held to
152 yards, three points and just two thirddown conversions over the final 43:55.
We started fast like we wanted to all week,
Gabbert said. Got the run game going. Got
some passes in there. Jumped up to 14-0 and

Gabbert converted another third down with a

pass to Garrett Celek to convert a third-and-9
before Carlos Hyde capped the drive with a 3yard run on third-and-1 to make it 14-0.
Thats about all the offense did all game as
San Francisco converted its next third down on
the following drive before going 1-for-7 the
rest of the way, a big factor in another loss.
The offensive woes could be summed up by
the final drives in the fourth quarter. With San
Francisco trailing 21-17, the offense took over
near midfield with a chance to take the lead.
Gabbert then took a rare deep shot down the
field. Torrey Smith got behind the Dallas
defense and Gabbert launched a pass his way
that could have been a go-ahead touchdown if
he had thrown it well. Instead, the pass was well
behind Smith and Morris Claiborne managed
to recover in time to make the interception.

At the end of the day just a gritty, gritty

The Ravens won their previous three games
by excelling in the fourth quarter. This game
was a throwback to last year, when Carr pulled
out a 37-33 win over Baltimore.
Operating against a porous defense ranked
32nd in the NFL, the Ravens didnt reach the
end zone until deep into the third quarter.
Flacco was pressured in the pocket for much
of the afternoon, in part because starting left

SEATTLE During the final few


weeks of the season, Sean Manaea
provided the As a glimpse of what
they hope to see over a longer haul
starting next season.
Manaea continued his solid close
to 2016 by throwing six innings
and allowing two runs as Oakland
finished the year with a 3-2 win over
the Mariners Sunday.
Since coming off the disabled list
in mid-September, Manaea allowed
three runs in 24 innings, striking
out 20 and allowing 15 hits.
Its been a lot of fun, Manaea
said. I kind of sometimes take
things too seriously and am really
hard on myself. Its really hard to get
out of those ruts when things arent
going well. When I sit back and have
fun and just try to be loose and just
go out there and do my thing, thats
when I feel like Im at my best.
Thats what these last three or four
starts Ive had have all felt like. Im
just happy how things turned out,
happy how I ended the season.
Manaea gave up five hits to the
Mariners and capped a second-half of
the season the As hope becomes the
norm in 2017. He had a 2.67 ERA in
13 games after the All-Star break and
allowed more than four earned runs
only once during that stretch.
The sky is the limit. There are

RBI single in the eighth.
San Franciscos fate came down to
Game No. 162, just as it did in 2010.
That year, Jonathan Sanchez pitched the
Giants past San Diego for the division
title. San Francisco went on to win the
franchises first World Series since
moving West in 1958.
The Giants led the majors with a 5733 record at the All-Star break. After an
up-and-down second half and a series of
bullpen meltdowns since the break, San
Francisco delivered an impressive
offensive performance against Kenta
Maeda (16-11), who surrendered five
runs and nine hits in 2 2/3 innings.
This is what makes this as special as
whats happened in the past, manager
Bruce Bochy said. We had two different
halves. If we wouldnt have gotten to

to get you out.


Stephen Vogt
hit his 14th
home run in the
first inning on
the only pitch
that he saw on
the final day of
the season. Vogt
drove the first
Sean Manaea pitch he saw
from Felix Hernandez just beyond
the left-field wall to give the As an
early lead. Vogt was lifted for a
pinch-hitter in his next at-bat.
Marcus Semien and Eric Pinder
added RBI singles as Oakland made
the three early runs stand up.
I havent had many of those and
thats something I really worked on
this year going the other way and
driving the ball that way a little bit
more, Vogt said. To get an opposite-field home run in the last game,
the last at-bat of the year, that was
pretty cool.
Seattle appeared drained after seeing its postseason hopes dashed in
Saturdays extra-innings loss to the
As. Hernandez (11-8) was lifted
after the third inning and Guillermo
Heredias two-run double in the fifth
amounted to all of Seattles offense
and the only real threat against
Manaea.
Oakland finished at 69-93, a onegame improvement over a year ago
but tied for the fifth-worst mark by
winning percentage in franchise
history. Matt Olson made a leaping
catch at the wall in right field to
grab Kyle Seagers line drive for the
second out of the ninth and preserve
the victory.

the postseason, this would have been


really hard to take, sitting in our position at the All-Star break.
San Francisco has won 16 of its last
20 home meetings against the Dodgers.
Third baseman Conor Gillaspie went
over a railing and TV camera and into
the photo well to snag Chase Utleys
foul popup to begin the third.
A superior catch, tumbling over the
railing, declared 88-year-old Scully.
Gillaspie refused to quit, eyes riveted
on the ball ... alls well that ends well.
The Giants are pumped.

Bags packed
The Giants loaded their suitcases in
the players parking lot early Sunday for
the possibility of being gone a week.
If they beat the Mets on Wednesday,
they would head straight to Chicago to
begin the best-of-five NL Division Series.
Were hitting the road regardless,
Bochy said. Its a case where youre
definitely hitting the road, so get your
packing done early. For a possible long
trip, pretty much the message to everybody. How else would you think?

to action. Im glad we showed some fight
even if it was the last drive. Even if were
down 100-0 weve got to keep fighting.
Come the second half, one dominated by
American River (4-1), CSMs deficit quickly
seemed as insurmountable.
This wasnt the case heading into halftime,
with the Beavers clinging to a 15-7 lead and
the Bulldogs set to receive the second-half
kickoff. But CSMs offense was stifled for a
three-and-out to start the half and Beavers
freshman quarterback Griffin Dahn responded
by leading his team on a gutsy 11-play, 67yard march making inches seem like miles
by punctuating the drive with a QB dive on
fourth-and-goal from the 1-foot line that just
broke the plain of the goal line.
Staking American River to a 22-7 lead, it
was the first of 25 consecutive points to open
the half. Dahn was a force, gaining 366 total
yards, including a precision air assault with
his 20-for-32 passing for 311 yards and three
TDs. More importantly, as the 6-5 freshman
turned up the intensity in the second half,
CSM was dominated both sides of the ball.
We just made too many mistakes in the
first half and gave a great team too many
opportunities, CSM head coach Larry Owens
said. You just cant do that against good
teams. And it just spiraled from there.
The Bulldogs offense faced an uphill assignment from the outset without their best skill
player, sophomore slot receiver Ramiah
Marshall, who did not suit up due to injury.
Still, CSM sophomore quarterback Bobby
Calmeyn went toe-to-toe with Dahn in the

first half. The two traded bombs through the


opening 30 minutes. Calmeyn responded to
the games first score a 19-yard touchdown
chuck from Dahn to Jabarri Johnson at the end
of the first quarter with a retaliatory strike
to start the second, hooking up with freshman
receiver Line Latu for a 36-yard scoring pass
to give CSM a 7-6 lead.
The Beavers came back over the top though
with Dahn airing out a 45-yard touchdown
pass to Lee Reed to retake the lead 12-7. But
CSM nearly dealt its biggest bomb from the
defensive side of the ball in the halfs waning
seconds but only nearly.
American River got pinned to its own 9yard line with 2:32 remaining in the half but
Dahn kept his offense on point. He delivered
a clutch 17-yard completion to Reed on thirdand-5 to near midfield. The QB tallied two
more completions and also ran twice to
advance the Beavers to the CSM 5-yard line.
But on third-and-goal from the 5, Dahns
pass over the middle was intercepted by CSM
sophomore safety Kava Maka, who had a
notion of sprinting coast to coast. But as
Maka looked to accelerate out of traffic with
nothing but green grass in front of him, the
ball was stripped, with the ensuing fumble
being recovered by American River with two
seconds remaining of the clock.
All I was thinking was touchdown, Maka
said. It was the end of the half and I
thought I had it.
American River cashed in on its second
life, with ORourke kicking a 32-yard field
goal on the final play of the half to up the
lead to 15-7.
Come the second half, anything in the way
of CSM momentum seemed to swiftly be
snuffed out by American River. After the
Beavers went up 22-7 midway through the
third quarter, Calmeyn cobbled together a
drive with completions of 15 and 25 yards to

get into American River territory.


But an apparent 30-yard touchdown pass to
Latu on a quick timing route was negated with
a yellow flag for an illegal man downfield.
Four plays later, the Bulldogs turned the ball
over on downs.
The team is working to make big plays
and then you get a penalty its hard, Latu
said. You cant come back from that.
CSM forced a three-and-out with strong
containment from defensive tackles Ahoia
and Fabian Tufono, but CSMs offense plummeted from there.
A 49-yard run by Bulldogs running back
Keenan Smith to the Beavers 10-yard line
proved the CSMs last hurrah. Place kicker
Carlos Silva followed with a missed 27-yard
field-goal attempt, to which American River
answered with a 47-yard Dahl-to-Brenden
McCarthy touchdown pass.
After two consecutive three-and-outs for
CSM, American River piled on. Backup quarterback Chris Guillen ran for a 4-yard touchdown to make it 37-7. After one more brief
CSM possession, the Beavers capped their
day with ORourkes last field goal with 1:56
remaining.
American River outgained CSM 496-328.
The Bulldogs totaled 15 first downs, but managed just five first in the second half, including two on the final drive with Zogrofos under
center.
Their defense played really great, Latu
said. They adjusted to our hitches and our
three-step routes. I feel they game-plan
really well.
With the loss, CSM closes out non-conference play with a 2-3 record. After a bye week,
the Bulldogs open Bay 6 Conference play
Saturday, Sept. 15, hosting De Anza at
College Heights Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m.

difference in the game.
San Lorenzo (3-2) fired right back, marching to make the end zone with 52 seconds
remaining in regulation. But on the ensuing
point-after try, Zahursky who plays predominately every play on offense, defense
and special teams went flying around end
to record the first blocked kick of his career.
We went crazy, Cap head coach Ben White
said. Everybody went crazy. I wasnt even
expecting it. In my mind I was already going
to overtime. So yeah, it was awesome.
The laundry list of Zahurskys multi-faceted
role is as follows: the junior plays special
teams as a punt and kick returner, kick holder,
a punt and kickoff pursuer and a place-kick
defender. On defense hes a starting safety and
captain of the secondary. On offense hes primarily a starting wide receiver but also serves
as the backup quarterback.
Hes just a great all-around player, White
said.
Prior to the blocked kick, Zahurskys highlight play Saturday was an interception in the
end zone. It was one of three interceptions by
the Mustangs. Halim and Abraham
Masoperah playing in his first varsity
game added the others.
Fifita generated more offense as he accli-

The senior came up with a clever move to


avoid an untouched San Lorenzo blitzer then
got his feet and fired from the flat to connect
with Halim.
We were taking deep shots at them pretty
much the whole second half because of the
way they were playing defense, White said.
They were blitzing everybody and just playing 1-on-1 coverage. I figured eventually
they were going to come up with one and
thats what happened.
Unlike most Peninsula Athletic League
football teams, Cap did not open league play
over the weekend as its season-finale rivalry
matchup The Battle of the Strip with
Mills is a Lake Division game. A majority
of PAL teams play non-league rivalry games.
As a result, the Mustangs open PAL Lake
Division play this Friday at San Mateo at 7
p.m. Cap is the reigning Lake Division champion but San Mateo is considered one of the
favorites to contend for the title this year. The
Bearcats opened Lake play Friday with a 3526 win over Jefferson.
Thats going to be a good game, White
said. Theyre pretty good.

Task completed as Americans win back Ryder Cup


By Doug Ferguson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHASKA, Minn. Patrick Reed shook


his fists with fury for every big putt he made.
Phil Mickelson leaped higher than when he
won his first Masters. Ryan Moore delivered
the final point in this American masterpiece
Sunday at the Ryder Cup.
The 17-11 victory over Europe was their
biggest rout in 35 years at the Ryder Cup.
Only this was more than just three days
of exquisite golf at Hazeltine. This victory
began two years ago in Scotland, when
Phil Mickelson publicly criticized U.S.
captain Tom Watson and a process that he
felt put the Americans in position to fail
far too often.
When put in the right environment, the
U.S. team brought out some amazing golf,
Mickelson said. And were bringing back
the Ryder Cup because of it.
Sure enough, that 17-inch gold trophy was
gleaming on a table, right next to a couple of
champagne bottles on ice.
This wasnt about being maybe the best
team ever assembled.
The Americans were a team, and that was all
that mattered. For the first time since 1975,
every U.S. player won at least one match.
And for the first time since 2008, the Ryder
Cup is staying in America.
Four years after Davis Love III saw his team
blow a 10-6 lead at Medinah, he watched
them make more birdies and eagles than he
could count as they filled the scoreboard with
American red and took any suspense out of
the outcome.
There was a lot of pressure on these guys
over the last couple years, Love said. We
havent had a good run lately, and Im thrilled
for them that they got the win. ... This team
has been questioned and beat up for a long

rookie by going 4-1. That was a lone bright


spot.
They did everything I asked of them. They
tried their heart out. They worked hard. They
fought hard, European captain Darren
Clarke said. The American Ryder Cup team
deserved to win. And were all gutted and disappointed. And we will be back stronger to
fight in two years time in Paris.
Mickelson already was looking ahead.
He had said the work of the task force
primarily for players and former captains to
have more input in an event run by the PGA
of America was not about this year but the
next 10 years of the Ryder Cup.
Even so, it was sweet to see that trophy
just a few feet away.
We need to build on this, Mickelson
said. Otherwise, its all for naught. We created a very solid foundation this year. ... Yes,
its great that we had success this week, but
its not about one year or one Ryder Cup. Its
about a multitude, for decades to come.
About that time, Love popped the cork off

baaack.
And minus a surprise setback
Sunday against Buffalo, its
almost like Tom Brady never left.
Despite being without their
franchise centerpiece for the past
month while he served his fourgame Deflategate suspension,
the New England Patriots welcome
Brady back on Monday 3-1 after a
16-0 loss to the Bills.

After the 2014 season, however, with the graduation of linebackers Toby Leonardos and

Baird to shift to the heart of the

game on Jan.
18, 2015.
A
federal
Tom Brady
judge initially
overturned the suspension, allowing Brady to play last season, but
an appeals court reinstated it this
spring. Prior to training camp in
July, Brady announced he would
end his legal challenges and
accept the leagues punishment.
The NFL won that fight, but with
a nearly unblemished start to

2016, the Patriots have barely


missed a beat.
Thats not to say they havent
had their trials. New England won
games it wasnt expected to and
watched the balance of the AFC
East struggle to keep up. It did it all
with a roster that has had its issues
with health at key positions.
As much as the team has rallied
behind Brady understudies Jimmy
Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett the
past month, there is also no denying
the eagerness in the Patriots locker
room to see No. 12 back in uniform.
Its going to be great, receiver
Julian Edelman said. Its one of
your best players on the team. A
guy that leads us. ... Anytime one
of your best players isnt there,

and more every game. Im denitely feeling more comfortable
than last year.
A third-year varsity starter,
Baird has actually had a hand in
dominating the Menlo run game
through each of HMBs wins over
the past three seasons. Through
the three games, the Knights have
rushed for a cumulative total of 84
yards.
This year was supposed to be
different though. Menlo had been
more of a true passing team in
2014 and 15. Ferguson after all
only rushed for 1,087 yards last
year. Thats an only because
through ve games this year the
senior has already racked up 752
ground yards.
It was denitely our goal on
defense to hold their running
backs and stop their run, Baird
said. That was what we tried to
do. They wanted to get him the
ball a lot. He was their main play-

er when they really needed it.


Not only was Baird able to stop
Ferguson when he carried the ball,
the dominant middle caused
Menlo to shift its entire offensive
focus. Ferguson only carried the
ball eight times. And of Menlos
rst 25 plays in the game, 22
were pass plays. No matter the
play call though, Bairds dancing
feet had Menlo hearing footsteps
all game long.
During Menlo snap counts,
Baird was regularly toeing the
line of scrimmage, threatening
blitzes and making his big presence felt in the A-gap. A two-way
lineman, Baird also plays offensive tackle. And the technique is
one he has learned from experience, as other teams linebackers
have tried to break his concentration and timing.
I denitely try to mix it up,
Baird said. Being an offensive
lineman myself, I know you can
get confused easily. And thats

something I try to do.

Much like with the Cougars


triple-read option offense, in
which quarterback Gavin
Tomberlin is constantly making
decisions after taking the snap as
to how to distribute the ball,
Baird has many of the same liberties on defense. He estimated
about 50 percent of HMBs defensive plays require set assignments
for him. The other half of the
time, he has the freedom to
maneuver and blitz as he sees t.
I think our coaches trust us
enough to just play football and
use our natural instincts, Baird
said.
Bairds instincts have served
HMB well. Through ve games to
start the season, the Cougars have
outscored opponents 179-98. And
that includes the 21 points Menlo
tacked on after HMB had already
put the victory away.

Reporter claims to learn writers true ID


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ROME Follow the money


trail is an adage of investigative
journalism. But can that approach
reveal the identity of a globally
popular author? Some fans of
Elena Ferrantes novels think
thats going too far.
Claudio Gatti, an investigative
journalist for Italian financial
newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore, claimed
Sunday he has probably discovered the true name of Ferrante,
whos popular for a series of novels exploring the lifelong friendship of two girls in Naples.
Gatti wrote that real estate
records involving the purported
actual writer, as well as revenue

and payment details involving


Ferrantes publishing house
Edizioni e/o, indicate that
Ferrante is a Rome-based book
translator married to a Neapolitan
writer.
His article was also published
by The New York Review of
Books, which headlined its version, Elena Ferrante: An
Answer?
The
Frankfurter
Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper
also published Gattis article,
while French investigative website, Mediapart, carried it as well.
The Italian reporter wrote that
after a months-long investigation it is now possible to make a
powerful case for Ferrantes true
identity. He contends that the

real author had a years-long relationship with Ferrantes publishing house as a translator of
German literature.
Gatti says the publisher,
Edizioni, e/o, refused comment,
adding that one of its owners contended his investigation constituted an invasion of privacy of
both Ferrante and the publisher.
Edizionis Rome office was closed
Sunday.
The apparent revelation of
Ferrantes identity prompted a
widespread backlash that questioned whether the age-old practice of using a nom de plume ought
to be subjected to such scrutiny.
Countless authors have found literary freedom by writing under a

dogs has perhaps been overstated,

absolutely be dangerous. Cocoa
powder is the most toxic, followed
in decreasing order by unsweetened
bakers chocolate, semisweet dark,

toxic white chocolate. In this
instance, size indeed does matter;
in other words, a Great Dane who
eats an M&M is not likely at risk,
while a Chihuahua who downs a bar

may be very much in trouble.

My advice: If your dog has eaten

anything from careful monitoring

RACE
Continued from page 1
Republican Party, said she has spent as
many as 30 hours per week advocating for
Donald Trump by hosting events and
fundraisers throughout the Bay Area rallying support among conservatives.

Hub of liberalism
Though California and the Bay Area are
recognized as hubs of liberalism, Rankin
said the bombastic entrepreneur turned
Republican nominee enjoys a strong and
faithful base of support locally.
We are really going strong, she said.
People would really be surprised by the
amount of people I have supporting me and
who want to support the campaign.
Rankin, who owns a bail bond company
in Redwood City, said Trump amassed such a
committed following due largely to his
image as a political outsider with a perspective uninfluenced by years spent in office.
Despite his lack of experience, national
polling shows Trump and Hillary Clinton
are separated only by the razor-thin margin
of a few percentage points, which Rankin
said she considers a notable indictment of
the Democratic candidate.
After 30 years in politics, if she were
doing a good job, if people liked her, she
would be wiping Donald Trump out, said
Rankin.
While the tight race may be a surprise to
Rankin, the same may not be said for some
of Clintons most dedicated local supporters.
Noveed Safipour, of the Peninsula Young
Democrats, said he has been bracing for a
close competition since Clinton declared
her interest in moving from her former role
as secretary of state into the nations commander in chiefs seat.
From early on I did expect it to be close
because the media and her opponents like to
chastise Hillary in a way that is sometimes
unfair, he said.

Phone banks
As part of an effort to influence the public
perception of his candidate, Safipour said
he has spent nights and weekends running
phone banks, registering people to vote
and even traveling to Nevada to bang the
drum for Clinton.
In all, Safipour said he has committed

roughly 200 hours to campaigning for


Clinton through her race against U.S. Sen.
Bernie Sanders in the primary election and
onto her battle with Trump.
The amount of time he volunteers to the
rest of her campaign will likely depend on
whether polls show she begins to take a
comfortable lead on Trump over the coming
weeks, said Safipour, as there are also local
ballot initiatives in the Bay Area he would
like to dedicate his efforts toward supporting.
Considering the blowback Trump has
received from some critics in the days following the first debate Monday, Sept. 26,
Safipour said he is confident Clinton will
begin to separate herself in the sprint
toward the White House.
If everyone pays attention to the reality
of these two candidates and puts aside all
the noise in a general election and looks at
who these two people are and what they prioritize, Hillary will win, he said.
For those with less skin in the game
though, the election outcome may not be as
clear.

Underwhelmed by candidates
Lee Ryan Miller, a professor of political
science at the College of San Mateo, said a
majority of his students are generally underwhelmed by both candidates, unlike the
enthusiastic support rallied previously
among young people by both President
Barack Obama and Sanders.
It doesnt seem like either candidate has
gotten most people really, really excited
about voting for either of them, he said.
Each one has hard-core supporters on
either side, but neither has a majority.
Considering the lack of a clear-cut frontrunner, swing states and undecided voters
are likely slated to become the focus of each
candidates platform over the final month,
reducing the likelihood either Trump or
Clinton will sway too far from their talking
points.
Its such a tight race. It can go either
way, he said. If they are smart, they would
be careful.
But considering the nature of the race
until this point, Miller said he was unwilling to count out anything unpredictable
occurring in the last lap of the race.
If I knew what would happen I would fly
to Las Vegas, said Miller. But a month is
a long time in politics and the developments in this race for the presidency have
defied all expectations to date.

He noted the California community college system is especially attractive because
it is often cheap, welcoming to communities of color, relatively easy to gain admission to and simple to transition from to
other university systems.
Martin said his experience in community
college was also helpful in rebuilding the
confidence he lost as a student who may
have fallen off track in high school.
Im glad I did it because I have the support I need, Martin said of his decision to
enroll in community college, rather than
simply pursue a job after high school.
Johns said Martins experience can be
useful in better understanding how to help
students who may feel disenfranchised by
the traditional educational path.
Too often we ask what is wrong with
you, rather than ask what is wrong, said
Johns.
The seminar at Skyline College was part
of nearly a dozen other similar events held

regarding support and resources available to

Skyline College is committed to student
success and particularly focused on decreasing the educational opportunity gap that
exists, so it is fitting that the White House
Summit on Educational Excellence for
African Americans be held here, she said.
Though much of the conversation focused
on education, ongoing conflicts between
black communities and law enforcement
were also addressed during the talks.
Im concerned what I see on social medial might happen to me or someone I know,
said Lopez, in reference to the protests
occurring both online and in communities
across the country following law enforcement using lethal force often in conflicts
with black men.
Pinkney too acknowledged prevailing the
social unrest frequently influences his perspective.
I pray often for the safety of my brothers, he said.
Martin said resented the lingering feelings of distrust between his community and
police.
Its unfair that I have to be aware of those
around me as well as those who are supposed
to be watching over me, he said.
But he expressed a reluctance to allow the
hurdles to stop him from achieving his
goals of attaining a college degree.
We should always be mindful of our surroundings, but it shouldnt hinder us from
doing what we need to do, he said.

TEST
Continued from page 1
Following the meeting last week,
officials elected to consolidate two
separate fourth- and fifth-grade classes
into a single combination class, due to
shrinking school enrollment, said
Olson.
Reese questioned the logic of
increasing the class sizes at a struggling school comprised of a high percentage of English learners and families living near the poverty line.
Though Olson acknowledged the
decision was difficult, she said officials had no choice as the cost of living has pushed away many district
families, particularly in the Belle Air
attendance area, and the resulting
declining enrollment means less average daily attendance money allocated
to the district.
The teacher whose class was consolidated into the combination grade will
not lose their job, said Olson, but
rather will serve as an educational support aide to work closely with students.
District officials will also spend

TRUMP
Continued from page 1
very good story for Donald Trump.
Giuliani called him an absolute
genius on ABCs This Week. And
Trump himself weighed in, saying he
was singularly qualified to fix a system
he may have exploited.
I know our complex tax laws better
than anyone who has ever run for president and am the only one who can fix
them, Trump tweeted on Sunday, just
five weeks ahead of the election.
Democrats said Trumps nearly $916
million loss in one year pokes holes
in his claim to be a champion for
working, tax-paying Americans.
He doesnt care about those small
businesses he didnt pay. He doesnt
care about the people who lost millions of dollars in all of his bankruptcies, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo.,
said on Fox News Sunday. Those
losses represent real pain to many
people who never got paid.
Clinton made no mention of Trumps
taxes during her events in North
Carolina Sunday and did not respond to
a shouted question about it.
Even as the story was published, the
candidate and his surrogates were
engrossed in an effort to change the
subject from his feud with 1996 Miss
Universe Alicia Machado and his middle-of-the-night tweet storm on the
subject. On Saturday night in
Manheim, Pennsylvania, Trump ques-

more money on hiring instructional


aides, reading support staff and tutors
to run before- and after-school programs at Belle Air to help students
seeking additional guidance outside of
classroom hours, said Olson.
There is a significant amount of
support being put in at Belle Air to
work with the students and make sure
they get the support they need, she
said.
Olson said a teacher voluntarily will
also host training sessions to help
Belle Air parents better understand
Common Core curriculum so they can
offer their children homework assistance when needed.
Considering the budgetary limitations the San Bruno Park Elementary
School District has historically faced,
Olson said a variety of unconventional approaches are required to assure students receive adequate assistance.
We have to be creative with the
funds that we do have, she said.
The budget has been so tight over
recent years that the district fell significantly behind on purchasing learning materials, said Olson, who was
pleased to say a majority of school
classrooms are now stocked with
books supporting Common Core standards.

This is the first time theyve had


current materials in a very long time,
she said.
As a result, and in tandem with the
variety of efforts underway, Olson said
she is confident the achievement of
district students will improve on standardized tests.
I firmly believe the test scores next
year will be much different, she said.
Reese though expressed less certainty, and said the only way the community can assure students improve their
performance is parents becoming more
involved.
Getting other parents on board and
getting them to move forward with
ensuring their role in their students
education, said Reese, regarding her
focus for improving academic performance at Belle Air Elementary School.
We all have to play a part.
For her part, Olson said it was heartening to see parents become so
engaged, despite the challenging circumstances.
The bottom line is that they want
the best for their kids. We all do. And I
give my word that we will do every single thing we can to get them what they
deserve and need to be successful, she
said.

tioned Hillary Clintons loyalty to her


husband and imitated her near-faint on
Sept. 11 after being diagnosed for
pneumonia.
The New York Times report sheds
light on some of the billionaires tax
returns after Trumps campaign refused
to release any such documents, breaking with 40 years of presidential campaign tradition. Clinton has publicly
released nearly 40 years worth, and
Trumps running mate, Indiana Gov.
Mike Pence, has released 10 years of
his tax returns.
Trump has said his attorneys are
advising him to keep his tax returns
private until a government audit is
completed. IRS Commissioner John
Koskinen told a House committee
Sept. 21 that people under IRS audit are
free to release their returns or IRS letters informing a person theyre being
audited.
In a story published online late
Saturday, the Times said it anonymously received the first pages of Trumps
1995 state income tax filings in New
York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The
filings show a net loss of
$915, 729, 293 in federal taxable
income for the year.
That Trump was losing money during
the early to mid-1990s a period
marked by bankruptcies and poor business decisions was already well
established. But the records obtained
by the Times show losses of such a
magnitude that they potentially
allowed Trump to avoid paying taxes
for years, possibly until the end of the
last decade.

His campaign said that Trump had


paid hundreds of millions of dollars
in other kinds of taxes over the years.
Trumps allies defended him during
appearances on the Sunday news
shows.
Giuliani, former New York mayor,
said Trump had some failures and then
he built an empire and called the businessman a genius at how to take
advantage of legal remedies that can
help your company survive and grow.
Dont you think a man who has this
kind of economic genius is a lot better
for the United States than a woman,
and the only thing shes ever produced
is a lot of work for the FBI checking
out her emails, Giuliani told ABCs
This Week.
In a separate interview on NBCs
Meet the Press, Giuliani noted that
poor people take advantage of similar loopholes, referring to the millions of Americans who arent required
to pay federal income taxes each year
because their incomes are too low.
Clintons primary rival, Sen. Bernie
Sanders, who made wealth inequality a
top campaign issue, said that assuming Trumps tax strategy was legal,
what it tells you is you have a corrupt
tax system which says to ordinary
people, youre supposed to pay your
taxes. But if youre a billionaire, there
are all kinds of loopholes that you can
utilize that enable you ... not to pay
anything in taxes.
Clintons
campaign
manager,
Robby Mook, used the Times story to
needle Trump about not releasing his
tax returns.

CHRISTIE
Continued from page 6
Christie of anything.
David Siegal, a former assistant federal prosecutor for southern New York,
said Wildsteins testimony and the
photos of the meeting at a 9/11 memorial event dont prove anything.
Siegal works at the Haynes and Boone
law firm and is not involved in the
trial.
Youd have to have better evidence
to charge and convict the governor of
the state of New Jersey, Siegal said.
While the governments case
against Baroni and former Deputy
Chief of Staff Bridget Kelly is built on
both Wildsteins testimony and electronic communication between them,
there hasnt been any information
linking Christie directly to it.
Christie said he never knew about
the scheme and did not authorize it. He
disputed what Wildstein testified to on
a radio interview, saying Guess what?
I know I didnt say that.
Baroni and Kellys defense lawyers

have argued that the plot was


Wildsteins plan. Kellys attorney last
week took aim at Wildsteins credibility, pointing out on cross-examination
instances when he lied.
Baroni and Kelly are on trial over
civil rights and wire fraud charges that
they orchestrated the 2013 lane closures as political payback against the
Democratic mayor of Fort Lee, the
community on the New Jersey side of
the busy bridge connecting the state to
Manhattan, for not endorsing Christie
in his 2013 re-election. They have
pleaded not guilty. Wildstein pleaded
guilty and is cooperating with prosecutors, hoping for leniency.
Debating what Christie knew and
when he knew it about the plot has
become a parlor game in New Jersey
media and political circles in the nearly three years since the scandal broke
open.
Ultimately, only two of his former
allies Baroni and Kelly were
charged, while Wildstein pleaded
guilty after talking to prosecutors and
resigning from the Port Authority of
New York and New Jersey, which operates the bridge.
Wildstein also testified that others

in Christies administration or with


the re-election campaign knew about
the plot, either before it happened or
before Christie insisted in a December
news conference that no one in the
administration or campaign was
involved.
Randall Eliason, a former assistant
federal prosecutor for the District of
Columbia, where he headed the public
corruption section, said that prosecutors wouldnt bring charges against
high-profile defendants like a sitting
governor without strong evidence.
Eliason is not involved in the case.
Guidelines for federal prosecutors
include the requirement that they
should not recommend any charges
that they cant reasonably expect to
prove beyond a reasonable doubt by
legally sufficient evidence at trial.
While Christie is on a list of possible witnesses, he said he doesnt
expect to be called to the stand in the
trial, likely to last another month.
Siegal said he would be shocked
if Christie is asked to testify, because
attorneys on both sides couldnt be
sure what he would say, and that he
could end up hurting either sides
case.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

RALLY
Continued from page 5
tioned the tactics used by Officer Richard Gonsalves.
Olango had been reported to be mentally disturbed and
unarmed and yet Gonsalves approached with his weapon
out, Dan Gilleon said.
It shows a cowboy with his gun drawn provoking a mentally disturbed person, Gilleon said.
The incident is the latest in a series of fatal shootings of
black men that have roiled communities across the U.S. It
came weeks after fatal shootings by police in Tulsa,
Oklahoma, and Charlotte, North Carolina.
Olango, a Ugandan refugee who arrived in the U.S. as a
boy, had a criminal record that included drug and weapon
charges but no violence. His family described him as a loving father and a joyful, happy person.
His mother said he suffered a mental breakdown recently
after the death of his best friend. On Tuesday, his sister
called 911 and reported he was acting strangely and walking
into traffic by a strip mall.
The longer of the two videos released by police came from
a surveillance camera in the drive-thru of a restaurant. It is
roughly a minute, has no sound and police blurred out the
heads of everyone in it.
Olango is seen walking through the parking lot and then
stopping suddenly as Gonsalves approached, his weapon
drawn at his side.
Olango, his right hand in his pants pocket, moved side to
side and backed up toward a white pickup truck.
As Gonsalves moved in from the front, a second officer,
Josh McDaniel, got out of a cruiser and approached from the
side.
In the second video, taken on a cellphone by a witness in
the drive-thru, Olangos sister is seen approaching
Gonsalves from behind and a woman can be heard screaming at Olango to put up his hands and telling police not to
shoot.
Olango then bent over and assumed the shooting stance
and Gonsalves quickly fired four shots at close-range. A
woman shrieked loudly as Olango fell forward.
That night, as an angry crowd protested outside police
headquarters, Davis released a single image from the video
showing Olango with his hands clasped in front and in the
shooting stance. Police said he had ignored repeated orders
to show his hands.
Davis defended the release and said it was intended to deescalate tensions and correct what he felt was a false narrative that was developing. Some witnesses said Olango had
his hands in the air and was beggied them.
A lawyer for the family said they welcomed the release of
the videos, but he questioned the tactics used by Officer
Richard Gonsalves. Olango had been reported to be mentally disturbed and unarmed and yet Gonsalves approached
with his weapon out, Dan Gilleon said.
It shows a cowboy with his gun drawn provoking a mentally disturbed person, Gilleon said.

STREET
Continued from page 4
at times, become aggressive.
They point out car break-ins and robberies also have
increased.
Brundage said his wife has been attacked twice after honking at people standing on her driveway, one of the few flat
areas about halfway down the street. Hes had to chase away
people who climb to his roof for a better photograph.
On a recent Sunday, the street bustled with tourists. Some
of them ignored signs and directions by traffic control officers in neon yellow vests, and jaywalked or stepped into
Lombard Street to take pictures, among them a man in a
white fishermans hat creating a 360-degree video in the
middle of the street.
Jim Hickman, who has lived on Lombard for more than
two decades, said managing crowds and enforcing the rules
need to be top priorities for city officials.
A report with potential solutions will be presented before
the end of the year to the San Francisco Board of
Supervisors, which will then make recommendations.
Im a tourist, too, and I understand people want to enjoy
the place, but were not the Eiffel Tower, were not Union
Square, were not the Golden Gate Bridge, Hickman said.
These other places have facilities. There are laws that are
enforced, and we dont have any of that available to us.
Sophie Arnoux, who was visiting from Southern France
with her family, said they first drove down the street, then
parked their car and went back on foot to walk down the
sidewalk.
Its one of the most beautiful streets in the world,
Arnoux said. Its a must-see, like Champs Elysees.
Aaron said she would be willing to pay a fee to drive down
the street as long as it was reasonable.
Asked if she would live along the street, she said, No
way!
Its a beautiful place, but there are too many people and
lots of cars, she said. It would be annoying to live here.
