Officials cheeredTopgolfduring thefirstformalexaminationofthe sports entertainment facility’s proposal to redevelop the BurlingameGolfCenter. The Burlingame Planning Commission largely admired the national chain’s design for the driving range and bar and restau- rant slatedto be built on city land

east ofHighway 101, according to video of the meeting Monday, May 13. The public discussion was the first in aseries designedto lay the groundwork for construction of the 71,000-square-foot center slated to open summer 2021 at 250 Anza Blvd., where the city’s driving rangecurrently operates. No decision was made at the meeting, as the proposal still needs to undergo a thorough envi-

ronmentalreviewprocesswhichis yet to begin. But given their first shot at scrutinizing the proposal, commissioners lauded the approach. “I think this is a great partner- ship to revitalize the facility and the area,” said Commissioner Richard Terrones, referring to the city’s agreement to lease for $1.5 million a year to Topgolf the site

Salmon season opens

Commercial fishermen hope for good hauls,hatchery juvenile fish to be released

By Zachary Clark

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The commercial salmon season openedThursday between Point Arena andPigeon Point andwhile fishermen haul in their first catches of the year this weekend, a unique program that has bolstered the fishery for nearly a decadekicks offin HalfMoon Bay. On Saturday, 240,000 baby Chinook salmon will be truckeddown from a state-operated hatchery near Lodi and dumped into a floating net pen off Pillar Point Harbor. The 4- inch-long salmon will be monitored for several days as they acclimate to

salt water before they’re released into the open ocean. Additional truckloads will arrive in Half Moon Bay in the coming weeks, sending a total of 740,000 salmon into the wild this year. “The reason we undertake this pro- gram is to get more fish out there for commercial andrecreational anglers to catch,” said Marc Gorelnik, chairman of the Coastside Fishing Club and founder of its ocean net pen project. “The natural areas are not faring very well, a little better nowwith rain, but with years ofdrought wedon’t do very well with natural production.”

Louisiana’s Democratic governor breaks with the party on abortion

BATON ROUGE, La. — Nearly three decades ago, when Democratic Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards’wifewas 20 weeks

pregnantwiththeirfirstchild,adoctordis-

coveredtheirdaughterhadspinabifidaand encouraged an abortion. The Edwardses refused. Now, daughter Samantha is married and working as a school

counselor, and Edwards finds himself an outlier in polarized abortion politics. “My position hasn’t changed. In eight years intheLegislature,Iwasa

pro-life legislator,” he said. When he ran for governor, his view was

thesame.“I’masconsis-

tent as I can be on that

Edwards, who has repeatedly bucked nationalpartyleadersonabortionrights,is

early as six weeks of pregnancy, before manywomenknowtheyarepregnant,when thebillreacheshisdesk. Louisiana’sproposal,awaitingonefinal

activists hoping the addition of conserva- tivejudgestotheSupremeCourtcouldhelp overturn Roe v. Wade — were backed by Republicangovernors. Ararity in his party, Edwards’anti-abor- tion stance provokes angry outcries on social media from Democratic voters and disappointment within the party’s broader ranksacrossthecountry. “When Republicans are taking away women’s rights at every step, it’s on the Democratstoshowthatwearethepartythat willprotectwomen.Whenwefailtodothat, wemakeit absolutely hopeless forwomen around the country,” said Rebecca Katz, a progressiveDemocraticconsultant.

The abortion-rights debates that divide state Capitols across the nation cause few ripples in the Louisiana Legislature. It is one of the country’s most staunchly anti- abortion states, with a law on the books thatimmediatelyoutlawsabortionifRoev. Wade is ever overturned. State lawmakers annually enact newregulations seeking to curbaccesswithbipartisansupport.

“Itgivesaverysmallwindowforawoman tobeabletoaccessabortionservices,”said ElizabethNashoftheGuttmacherInstitute, an abortion rights organization that researchesreproductivehealthissues. Edwards’ embrace of the anti-abortion legislation is unusual for a present-day Democratic governor, Nash said, although thatwasnotalwaysthecase.

Missouri the latest to pass abortion bill

By Summer Ballentine

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri’s Republican-led House on Friday passed sweeping legislation designed to survive court challenges, which would ban abor- tionsateightweeksofpregnancy. If enacted, the ban wouldbe among the most restrictive in the U.S. It includes exceptionsformedicalemergencies,butnot for pregnancies caused by rape or incest. Doctors would face five to 15 years in prison forviolating theeight-week cutoff. Women who receiveabortions wouldn’t be prosecuted. RepublicanGov. MikeParsonpledgedto sign the bill , but it’s unclear when he’ll take action. When pressed on the lack of exceptions for rape or incest, he told reportersthat“alllifehasvalue.” “I’mgoingtostandupforthepeoplethat don’t have a voice,” Parson said. “Everybodyshouldhavearighttolife.” The Missouri legislation comes after Alabama’s governor signed a bill Wednesdaymakingperforminganabortion afelonyinnearlyallcases.

Dems play the long game against Trump

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON— First came the sternly

worded letters. Then the subpoenas. Now

thevotestoholdTrumpadministrationoffi-

cialsincontemptofCongress. As House Democrats plodaheadinvesti- gating President Donald Trump, against unprecedented stonewalling by the White House, theyarepursuingalong-gamestrat- egy that’s playing out in the committee rooms, the courthouse and in the court of publicopinion.Andit’sgoingtotaketime. SomeDemocratssaytheadministration’s blockadeis leaving themalmost no choice but to open an impeachment inquiry —not necessarilytoimpeachTrump,butaspartof alegal strategy to forcetheadministration tocomplywiththeirrequestsfordocuments andtestimony. “Things arecoming to atipping point,” saidRep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., a member oftheJudiciaryCommittee. “We’rerunning out ofoptions,”saidanotheron thepanel, Rep.ValDemings, D-Fla. “Ithinkwe’reon theroad,”saidRep.JaredHuffman,D-Calif. Speaker Nancy Pelosi racheted up the pressure this week when, faced with a 12- page letter from the White House counsel saying Congress had no “legislative pur- pose”in its investigations, shot back that thepurposecould, in fact, beforimpeach- ingthepresident. “We hope we don’t have to do that,” Pelosisaid.“Wewanttoseewhatwecanget

respectfully. First, we ask. Then we subpoena friendly. Then we sub- poena otherwise. And thenweseewhatweget.” Democrats say they’re not ready to impeach the president. But opening an impeachment inquiry would provide legal weight to their investi-

gationsthatwouldbetougherfortheadmin-

istrationtoignore.Already,ajudgeindicat-

edlast week Congress may havearight to review some of Trump’s financial docu- ments.AsTrump instructs hisWhiteHouse to reject the requests from Congress, more legalbattlesarecoming. Allan Lichtman, a professor at American University who wrote a book on impeach- ment, said the administration’s arguments for blocking Congress wouldlikely go by thewaysideincourtiftheHousewereinan impeachment inquiry. The Constitution givestheHousethesolepowertoimpeach, which stretches even beyondits traditional oversight role. It’s onething forTrump to say the White House won’t respond to Congress. It’s another for the administra- tion to defy acourt orderto turn overdocu- ments. “Thecourts havebeen very, very wary of interfering in the impeachment power,” Lichtman said. “This is really acasewhere onebranchofgovernmentrules.”
