City has acreage now what?

Belmont seeks development to recoup San Juan Hills open space investment
By Bill Silverfarb

Nearly two-and-a-half years after winning an auction for 35 acres of open space in the San Juan Hills, Belmont ofcials are still trying to nd ways to pay for the purchase. The city took out a $1 million loan in 2009 to put toward the purchase of about 87 plots of mostly undevelopable land in an auction held

by the U.S. Marshals Service. The council, however, voted to make the purchase revenue neutral and city staff indicated about ve of the 87 plots could be sold to recoup the investment. City staff is now seeking council direction on whether to form a developer team to construct housing in the hills near Marsten Avenue. The property the city bid on is split into four

groups, with the largest plot being 12.57 acres. Much of the land is on steep slopes and is undevelopable, however. The council approved the purchase on a 4-1 vote, with Councilman Warren Lieberman voting no because he was not convinced the purchase would be revenue neutral. His concern is that the city will have to sell more of the plots for housing than it had initially expected.

Yesterday, Councilwoman Coralin Feierbach said she envisioned no more than 10 to 12 large homes being constructed in the area. Some small-scale developers might be interested, she said. Feierbach wants to see a minimum of development to pay back the loan but Lieberman

Contracts to repair infrastructure damaged in the Crestmoor neighborhood during the Sept. 9, 2010 gasline explosion and re will go before the San Bruno City Council Tuesday. The fatal explosion created much damage for the San Bruno neighborhood. Broken water pipes, damaged retaining wall and loss of vegetative cover and trees are among the issues that will be addressed with contracts going before the City Council tonight. Repairing damaged infrastructure is required to allow the opportunity for those who want to rebuild a process many started last year. Among the contracts going before the council are a $517,457 contract with Casey Construction to complete the rst phase of the water system improvement project along with a $645,000 construction budget. Secondly, the council will consider amending a contract with BKF Engineers. The change would increase the contract by $406,100 allowing for the design services to address a larger area than previously requested, according to a staff report by Public Service

Jury begins deliberating murder case Millbrae considers plastic bag ban
By Michelle Durand

Jurors deliberating if a Millbrae man pumped 11 bullets into his friends head after a night of drinking before leaving the body for days in a parked car dont need to decide why he committed the murder, just that he did, a prosecutor told them during closing arguments yesterday. With the defense having rested without pre-

senting any evidence, jurors have only heard from witnesses called by the prosecution against Teyseer Zaid Terry Najdawi. In his closing argument, defense attorney Jonathan McDougall conceded it was a risky move

An estimated 7 million plastic bags are used in Millbrae annually but that number could drop drastically should the city support a ban on single-use bags a topic which will be discussed by the City Council tonight. And response from local business may not

be positive. The Millbrae Chamber of Commerce board is opposing the proposal, said CEO John Ford. While the chamber isnt against the goal of being green and promoting reusable bags, it questions the negative impacts on local small businesses. It did support an earlier proposal which only required

the Roberts Commission, which had looked into Americas lack of preparedness for Imperial Japans attack on Pearl Harbor, publicly released its report placing much of the blame on Rear Adm. Husband E. Kimmel and Lt. Gen. Walter C. Short, the Navy and Army commanders.

In 1742, Charles VII was elected Holy Roman Emperor during the War of the Austrian Succession. In 1848, James W. Marshall discovered a gold nugget at Sutters Mill in northern California, a discovery that led to the gold rush of 49. In 1862, author Edith Wharton was born in New York. In 1908, the Boy Scouts movement began in England under the aegis of Robert Baden-Powell. In 1922, Christian K. Nelson of Onawa, Iowa, received a U.S. patent for his Eskimo Pie. In 1943, President Franklin D. Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill concluded a wartime conference in Casablanca, Morocco. In 1961, a U.S. Air Force B-52 crashed near Goldsboro, N.C., dropping its payload of two nuclear bombs, neither of which went off; three crew members were killed. In 1965, Winston Churchill died in London at age 90. In 1978, a nuclear-powered Soviet satellite, Cosmos 954, plunged through Earths atmosphere and disintegrated, scattering radioactive debris over parts of northern Canada. In 1987, gunmen in Lebanon kidnapped educators Alann Steen, Jesse Turner, Robert Polhill and Mitheleshwar Singh. (All were eventually released.) In 1989, confessed serial killer Theodore Bundy was executed in Floridas electric chair.

Police officer fired for smoking in precinct
NEWBERN, Tenn. A Tennessee police department says it has fired an officer after 17 years on the force because he repeatedly smoked cigarettes inside the precinct in violation of the citys no smoking policy. Newbern police Sgt. James Bishop was terminated last week. A 2007 city policy prohibits smoking inside all municipal offices and buildings. According to the termination letter obtained by the State Gazette, Police Chief Harold Dunivant said he had complaints that his employees were smoking inside their offices and issued a warning that disciplinary action could be taken. Dunivant said he continued to get complaints about Bishop smoking indoors and was forced to fire him. A phone number that the city of Newbern had on record Bishop him was disconnected, and messages left by the Associated Press at other listings for James Bishop werent immediately returned. George Murphy says his wife saved his life. The Anchorage Daily News says the 82-year-old pilot, who flew for three decades for the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, was hiking with his golden retrievers near the Willow airport Friday. He saw the moose and dove in the snow, but the moose started stomping him. His wife, Dorothea, who is 5 feet tall and weighs 97 pounds, grabbed a big shovel and hit the moose in the body and head. She ran for help, and Murphy was rushed by medical helicopter to an Anchorage hospital. He was in good condition Monday with a gash to his head. said to the doctor Is this a joke? Did you get that out of the doctors joke file? the 32-year-old recalled. The doctor said No man, thats in your head. As he was rushed by ambulance to another hospital for surgery, he posted a picture of the X-ray on Facebook. Autullo, who lives in Orland Park, said he was building a shed Tuesday and using the nail gun above his head when he fired it. With nothing to indicate that a nail hadnt simply whizzed by his head, his long-time companion, Gail Glaenzer, cleaned the wound with peroxide. It really felt like I got punched on the side of the head, he said, adding that he continued working. I thought it went past my ear. While there are pain-sensitive nerves on a persons skull, there arent any within the brain itself. Thats why he would have felt the nail strike the skull, but he wouldnt have felt it penetrate the brain. Neither he nor Glaenzer thought much about it, and Autullo went on with his day, even plowing a bit of snow. But the next day when he awoke from a nap, feeling nauseated, Glaenzer sensed something was wrong and suggested they go to the hospital. At first Autullo refused, but he relented after the two picked up their son at school Wednesday evening.

City to transfer redevelopment properties

San Mateo officials still trying to make sense of state,court decision
By Bill Silverfarb

Police reports
Bag ladies
Two women were seen stufng their purses with items on the 800 block of North Delaware Street in San Mateo before 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 22.

As the city of San Mateo moves toward dissolving its Redevelopment Agency, the council will vote tonight whether to transfer ownership of 13 RDA-owned parcels, including the Vendome Hotel and old police station, to the city. With the California Supreme Court decision in December, all RDAs in the state must be dissolved by Feb. 1 but there is no longer an option for cities to participate in a voluntary program to continue redevelopment activity on a reduced basis as the court ruled Assembly Bill X1 27 was unconstitutional. The aggressive timelines for dissolution has put pressure on city staff to meet the courts deadlines, San Mateo Mayor Brandt Grotte said.

The court did uphold AB X1 26, however, which allows cities to assume housing functions and to take over the housing assets of the former RDA. The Legislature approved the companion bills last year as a way to generate around $1.7 billion toward reducing the states nearly $10 billion decit. There is a chance that February deadline might be extended to April 15 if a bill authored by state Sen. Alex Padilla, D-San Fernando Valley, is successful. That does not appear likely since the governor has expressed his disapproval and the city of San Mateo is moving ahead with its plans. Tonight, the council will decide whether the city should be the RDAs successor housing agency, which would give it all the rights, powers, duties and obligations of the former RDAs affordable housing functions. The move will allow San Mateo to retain the housing assets, including loan receivables

and land held for resale, according to a staff report. If cities do not establish successor housing agencies, the state will take over the winddown activities. The states actions related to RDAs have been extremely confusing, Grotte told the Daily Journal. It is about as clear as mud. State lawmakers have suggested crafting additional legislation in 2012 that would restore some RDA activity in the wake of the court ruling. Grotte is not sure Gov. Jerry Brown will support the legislation, since it was he who suggested dissolving about 400 of the agencies statewide early last year. It has been an unclear process, Grotte said. Its been hard for people to understand. Nonprot agencies, such as HIP Housing,

Obama to address economic anxiety

Around the nation

Alabama hit again by tornadoes;two dead,100 hurt
OAK GROVE, Ala. Knowing this communitys history of tornadoes, Jhan Powers gets nervous anytime violent weather rolls in. While her house was spared this time, a tornado demolished nearby mobile homes all of which were just a short drive from a path of destruction cut just last year by a deadly twister. At least two tornadoes roared across the heart of Alabama on Monday, killing two people and injuring more than 100 others during the middle of the night. More than 200 homes were destroyed, the Red Cross said, and just as many houses were heavily damaged. The storm awoke families, and many huddled together as winds howled outside. After the storms passed, rescue teams had to go door-to-door in some places, calling out to residents. The unincorporated community of Oak Grove was hit hard in April and again Monday, though ofcials said none of the same neighborhoods was struck twice. I would really like to never see another tornado again, Powers said as neighbors sorted through the remnants of their home. When you see this destruction, how can you not take it seriously?

WASHINGTON Eager to command center stage in a year dominated by Republican infighting, President Barack Obama is polishing a State of the Union address that will go to the heart of Americans economic anxiety and try to sway voters to give him four more years. He will speak Tuesday to a nation worried about daily struggles and unhappy with his handling of the economy. Obamas 9 p.m. EST address before a politically divided Congress will be built around ideas meant to appeal to a squeezed middle class. He is expected to urge higher taxes on the wealthy, propose ways to make college more affordable, offer new steps to tackle a debilitating housing crisis and try to help U.S. manufacturers expand hiring. Designed as a way for a president to update the nation and recommend ideas to Congress, the State of the Union address has become more than that, especially during that one window when the address falls during the re-election year of an incumbent. It is televised theater and Obamas biggest, best chance so far to offer a vision for a second term. He will frame the campaign to come as a ght for fairness for those who are

struggling to keep a job, a home or college savings and losing faith in how the county works. The speech will be principally about the economy, featuring the themes of manufacturing, clean energy, education and American values. No matter whom Obama faces in November, the election is likely to be driven by the economy, and determined by which candidate wins voters trust on how to x it. More people than not disapprove of Obamas handling of the economy. The overarching political goal is to give voters a contrast between his vision of a government that tries to level the playing eld and those ofce-seekers who, in his view, would leave people on their own. Without naming them, Obama has in his sights those after his job, including Republicans Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.

Court overturns California slaughterhouse law

WASHINGTON The Supreme Court on Monday blocked a California law that would require euthanizing downed livestock at federally inspected slaughterhouses to keep the meat out of the nations food system. The high court ruled that the states 2009 state law was blocked from going into effect by federal law administered by the Agriculture Departments Food Safety and Inspection Service. . Federal law precludes Californias effort ... to impose new rules, beyond any the FSIS has chosen to adopt, on what a slaughterhouse must do with a pig that becomes non-ambulatory during the production process, said Justice Elena Kagan, who wrote the courts unanimous opinion. California strengthened regulations against slaughtering socalled downer animals after the 2008 release of an undercover Humane Society video showing workers abusing cows at a Southern California slaughterhouse. Under California law, the ban on buying, selling and slaughter of downer cattle also extends to pigs, sheep and goats.

Heated charges,counter-charges in GOP debate

By Steve Peoples

TAMPA, Fla Republican presidential contenders Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich clashed repeatedly in heated, personal terms Monday night in a crackling campaign debate, the former Massachusetts governor tagging his rival as a Washington inuence peddler, only to be accused in turn of spreading

falsehoods over many years in politics. Youve been walking around the state saying things that are untrue, Gingrich told his rival in a two-hour debate marked by occasional interruptions and nger-pointing. The event marked the rst encounter among the four remaining GOP contenders former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and Texas Rep. Ron Paul shared the stage since Gingrich won

the South Carolina primary in an upset last weekend. His double-digit victory reset the race to pick a rival to challenge Democratic President Barack Obama this fall, and the next contest is the Jan. 31 Florida primary. With a week of campaigning ahead, Romney is expected to release his income tax return for 2010 as well as an estimate for 2011 on Tuesday.

Ground zero building struggles to find tenants

NEW YORK An 80-story skyscraper under construction at ground zero will have to stop at seven stories unless the developer can line up more tenants, planners said Monday, adding to problems that have plagued the $11.7 billion World Trade Center project. Silverstein Properties Inc. said it is still looking for tenants to ll the rst 10 oors of Three World Trade Center, the third-highest building in the planned ofce complex. Without those leases, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will not guarantee the nancing that Silverstein needs to nish the building.

$25B nationwide mortgage deal goes to states

By Derek Kravitz

WASHINGTON The nations ve largest mortgage lenders have agreed to overhaul their industry after deceptive foreclosure practices drove homeowners out of their homes, government ofcials said Monday.

A draft settlement between the banks and U.S. states has been sent to state ofcials for review. Those who lost their homes to foreclosure are unlikely to get their homes back or benet much nancially from the settlement, which could be as high as $25 billion. About 750,000 Americans about half of the households who might be eligi-

ble for assistance under the deal will likely receive checks for about $1,800. But the agreement could reshape longstanding mortgage lending guidelines and make it easier for those at risk of foreclosure to restructure their loans. And roughly 1 million homeowners could see the size of their mortgage reduced.

Iran revives Gulf threats after EU sanctions

By Nasser Karimi and Brian Murphy


The Royal Navy frigate HMS Argyll conducts exercises with the U.S.Navy aircrafty carrier USS Kearsage in the Kuwait Gulf.

TEHRAN, Iran Senior Iranian lawmakers have stepped up threats that Islamic Republic warships could block the Persian Gulfs oil tanker trafc after the latest blow by Western leaders seeking to rein in Tehrans nuclear program: A punishing oil embargo by the European Union that sharply raises the economic stakes for Irans deance. The EU decision taken Monday in Brussels following the U.S. lead to target Irans critical oil exports opened a new front against Irans leadership. Pressure is bearing down on the clerical regime from many directions, including intense U.S. lobbying to urge Asian powers to shun Iranian crude, a nose-diving national currency and a recent slaying in what Iran calls a clandestine campaign against its nuclear establishment. In response, Iranian ofcials have turned to one of their most powerful cards: The narrow Strait of Hormuz at the mouth of the Gulf and the route for a fth of the worlds oil. Iran has

rattled world markets with repeated warnings it could block the hook-shaped waterway, which could spark a conict in the Gulf. Military experts have questioned whether Iran has the naval capabilities to attempt a blockade. But the U.S. and allies have already said they would take swift action against any Iranian moves to choke off the 30-mile (50kilometer) wide strait where the American aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, along with British and French warships, entered the Gulf on Sunday without incident. The British Ministry of Defense said the three nations sought to underline the unwavering international commitment to maintaining rights of passage under international law. Earlier this month, Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, told CBS Face the Nation that Iranian forces could block shipping through the strait for a period of time, but added we can defeat that and restore the ow of oil and other commerce. He did not offer details on a U.S. military response, but the Pentagon is believed to have contingency plans for such a scenario.

Court: Warrant needed for GPS tracking

By Jesse J. Holland and Pete Yost

Around the world

Syria rejects new Arab League plan to end crisis
BEIRUT Syria on Monday rejected the Arab Leagues wide-ranging new plan to end the countrys 10-month crisis, saying the Leagues call for a national unity government in two months is a clear violation of Syrian sovereignty, as violence raged. Tens of thousands of people poured into the streets in a suburb outside the capital, Damascus to mourn for 11 residents who were either shot dead by security forces or killed in clashes between army defectors and troops a day earlier, activists said. An activist group said 23 people were killed in Syria on Monday. The crowd in Douma which one activist said was 60,000strong was under the protection of dozens of army defectors who are in control of the area after regime forces pulled out late Sunday, said Samer al-Omar, a Douma resident. The reports could not be independently conrmed.

WASHINGTON In a rare defeat for law enforcement, the Supreme Court unanimously agreed on Monday to bar police from installing GPS technology to track suspects without rst getting a judges approval. The justices made clear it wouldnt be their nal word on increasingly advanced high-tech surveillance of Americans. Indicating they will be monitoring the growing use of such technology, ve justices said they could see constitutional and privacy problems with police using many kinds of electronic surveillance for long-term tracking of citizens movements without warrants. While the justices differed on legal rationales, their unanimous outcome was an unusual setback for government and police agencies grown accustomed to being given leeway in investigations in post-Sept. 11 America, including by the

Supreme Court. The views of at least the ve justices raised the possibility of new hurdles down the road for police who want to use high-tech surveillance of suspects, including various types of GPS technology. The Supreme Courts decision is an important one because it sends a message that technological advances cannot outpace the American Constitution, said Donald Tibbs, a professor at the Earle Mack School of Law at Drexel University. The people will retain certain rights even when technology changes how the police are able to conduct their investigations. A GPS device installed by police on Washington, D.C., nightclub owner Antoine Jones Jeep and tracked for four weeks helped link him to a suburban house used to stash money and drugs. He was sentenced to life in prison before an appeals court overturned his conviction. Its not clear how much difficulty police agencies would have with warrant

requirements in this area; historically they are rarely denied warrants they request. But the Obama administration argued that getting one could be cumbersome, perhaps impossible in the early stages of an investigation. In the Jones case, police got a warrant but did not install the GPS device until after the warrant had expired and then in a jurisdiction that wasnt covered by the document. Justice Antonin Scalia said the governments installation of the device, and its use of the GPS to monitor the vehicles movements, constituted a search, meaning a warrant was required. Ofcers encroached on a protected area, Scalia wrote. Relying on a centuries-old legal principle, he concluded that the police action without a warrant was a trespass and therefore an illegal search. He was joined in his opinion by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas and Sonia Sotomayor.

Two more cruise bodies found, oil pumping to begin

ROME Salvage experts can begin pumping fuel from a capsized cruise ship as early as Tuesday to avert a possible environmental catastrophe and the ship is stable enough that search efforts for the missing can continue, Italian ofcials said. The decision to carry out both operations in tandem was made after instrument readings determined that the Costa Concordia was not at risk of sliding into deeper waters, Franco Gabrielli, chief of the national civil protection agency, told reporters Monday. The ship is stable. ... There is no problem or danger that it is about to drop onto much lower seabed, Gabrielli said on the island of Giglio.

Brown right to call for new housing chief

The Sacramento Bee

Other voices
Under DeMarcos leadership, FHFA also halted the Property Assessed Clean Energy program, which had been embraced by a growing number of California counties. Under the program, homeowners could obtain low-interest loans to install solar panels and make other energy efciency improvements and repay the loans as part of their property tax bills. As attorney general, Brown sued FHFA to try to overturn the decision. In both cases, DeMarco has thwarted the White House. The problem is that DeMarco takes an exceedingly narrow view of his duties. He is extremely cautious about doing anything that could threaten the solvency of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. Thats important taxpayers bailed out the two agencies with at least $160 billion. But aiding the housing markets recovery and boosting clean energys growth are also essential to the nation. The other problem is that DeMarco, who isnt commenting on calls for his ouster, is in

ocal and state ofcials in California have been more than patient with the nations top housing regulator. Gov. Jerry Brown nally had enough, ring off a letter to President Barack Obama that urges him to name a director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency who will truly represent your policies. Under acting Director Edward DeMarco, the agency has ignored Californias foreclosure crisis, completely sabotaged a promising solar power program and is hindering Californias economic recovery, Brown complained, according to the Los Angeles Times. DeMarco has been very reluctant to lead the way on the home foreclosure crisis by, for instance, reducing principal amounts or helping homeowners renance underwater loans guaranteed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, the two federally backed home mortgage giants he oversees. Last week, 28 U.S. House Democrats from California also called on Obama to appoint a new director more willing to intervene in the housing market.

an unwieldy limbo where he lacks the authority and credibility he needs to be truly effective. He has been acting director since September 2009, a carryover from the Bush administration. The president can solve both problems by putting his own person in charge. In late 2010, Obama nominated Joseph Smith Jr., then North Carolinas banking commissioner, to be FHFA director. But when key Senate Republicans objected, the president backed down and withdrew the nomination. Its interesting to note that Obama was willing to risk Republican retribution with his recess appointment this month of Richard Cordray, a former Ohio attorney general, as the rst director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Cordray has important work to do, guarding Americans from deceptive and abusive nancial products that deepened the nancial collapse. The director of FHFA is also a powerful post. The president has also shown enough patience. He needs to act swiftly and aggressively to ll it with someone who shares his goals.

Smart move
t may be the smartest move ever made by a county supervisor. Literally. Supervisor Adrienne Tissier, just named board president in the annual reorganization, took the opportunity to do something that should have been done many moons ago she split future meetings into two halves. The rst morning session will deal with budget and policy issues. The second, in the afternoon, will tackle land issues. And never the twain shall meet. If this change makes you ask so what? you have never attended a Board of Supervisors meeting. You have never arrived at 9 a.m. only to have that 10 a.m. matter of such and such continually pushed back by a marathon public hearing on coastside development that just happened to be agendized rst. Youve never had to leave the meeting for work or children or any other responsibility before your topic of consideration is called. Youve never heard the board call a break at noon and ask everybody to return after lunch, silently cursing every elected ofcial who didnt better prioritize or every public speaker who couldnt just say ditto to echo the same sentiment as the previous dozen. If, however, Tissiers decision draws a sigh of relief, a quiet thank you, a realization that common sense might not be a complete loss down there in the county government center, welcome to the world of me and everybody else who thinks civic duty and community participation have been sorely tested by the previously existing way of doing business. Granted, the Board of Supervisors already had one up over most city governments and other boards that hold public meetings. Unlike the agendas of those groups which typically just list off items under headings like new business and consent, the board further breaks up its chores and gives several specic times. If, for example, an item is listed as beginning at 10 a.m., it will start no earlier although the time could be postponed if the previous matters are lengthy. This process doesnt protect the bleary eyed from having to sit through minutes or even hours of discussion unrelated to their focus. However, it does offer a baseline from which to work. The item isnt on until 10 a.m.? Another cup of coffee is a possibility rst. The item is set for 9:15 a.m. sharp? Maybe you can still pencil in that lunch date because chances are good you wont still be lingering around at noon, wondering when the board will stop talking about that construction appeal and get on to the budget. The frustration over the order and prioritization of board matters isnt limited to just those in the audience or awaiting a turn at the podium. At a public hearing over new jail plans last year, the boards newest member vented about why it had spent so much time that morning debating eco-tourism at coastal pumpkin patches in comparison to the few hours set aside for a new incarceration facility. Tissiers shakeup wouldnt have xed her comrades implication that pumpkin permits just arent as worthy as budget or public safety issues. His job as an elected ofcial is to give both ample consideration and realize that for some folks the daily operation of a business is more important than where to house and rehabilitate the bad seeds. However, the new schedule would ensure in the future that those with such disparate views wouldnt necessarily go batty sitting through the respective conversations. Not every person will do backips over every Styrofoam ban, declaration of Hug a Cute Puppy Week, appeal of plans to add a secondstory house addition or acceptance of a report on childrens health indicators. Many of the things the board does is frankly rote and boring. Some take way too long. A few might even be considered ... lame. But there is somebody for everything and each item does deserve its 15 minutes of fame or so that just doesnt mean everybody wants to sit through it. So thank you, Adrienne, for doing something so simple and so necessary. Its about time.

1870 Art Center
Editor, In effectively what will be the closing of the 1870 Art Center due to unfair and inexible lease terms currently being offered, Councilwoman Coralin Feierbach and Parks and Recreation Director Jonathan Gervais are shortsighted for the greater good, not only for Belmont but the larger community of the Peninsula (Belmont ends artists lease in the Jan. 18 edition of the Daily Journal). Feierbach states, these rooms at Barrett should be rented for community use, not private space as it is now, and that is simply untrue and misleading. As a curator, I visit the center on a regular basis and enjoy the high-quality rotating exhibitions in the gallery and visit the individual artist studios (which have always been open to anyone interested in the arts). Losing this ne collection of artists for Open Studios would be a signicant blow to the art scene; having numerous artists in one space is what drives visitors versus time consuming stops to individual artist studios. And seemingly with the museum next in line to be evicted, there will be certainly no reason to visit Belmont, and Ill bypass it on my way to San Francisco or Oakland.

Mitt Romneys momentum?

Editor, I dont know why the Other Voices editorial excerpts so often include views from the extreme right, but the Dallas Morning News bit from Jan. 19 seemed ridiculous in its assertion that Romney had cemented his position as ... front runner. So, two small-states win, one by a reported eight votes, and this gives him unprecedented momentum? That was a low threshold to cross. I wonder how theyre spinning it now that the GOP found votes in the middle of the night (sound familiar?), and that Santorum actually won. The Republican primary choices and bi-weekly debates are like the cast of a really low-budget reality show, or maybe like the little car in the circus that pops open to reveal a whole bunch of clowns.

Raising the rent on artists

Editor, On Friday, Jan. 13, the city of Belmont distributed notices to all artists at the 1870 Art Center stating that their rents would be raised by about 35 percent. These artists have maintained the property for decades under the guidance of Ruth Waters. They have been quiet, considerate tenants in a building without heat or hot water. They have managed to keep the building clean and respectable, even

Karen Gutfreund San Jose The letter writer is the second vice president, National Exhibitions Director, Womens Caucus for Art.

maintaining a gallery for the community to visit. 1870 has been a landmark and ne example of a Peninsula communitys art activity. These artists have paid their rent promptly, covering all maintenance, utilities and even rodent control in this antiquated building. The next eviction on the Belmont City Councils schedule will be for the tenants of the Manor House in Twin Pines Park, that includes the Peninsula Museum of Art of which I am a board member and other organizations and artist tenants. The Manor House has been refurbished and, in some cases, restored by the museum and other tenants. Its present look of elegance and beauty has been the result of careful love, care and consideration by the present tenants of the Manor House over the years. The City Council also proposes to raise the rent for artists living outside the city of Belmont. This alone depicts a kind of favoritism that is unethical. It is like giving Belmont residents preference to their shopping centers, parking, emergency services and even access to their libraries, schools and houses of worship. What bothers me most is that the ages of these artists have not been taken into consideration. I think the majority of these artists are senior citizens and are living on xed incomes. Where are they to go? I feel that a community without art and art appreciation is like a person or community without soul.

Stocks end mixed

By Matthew Craft

Wall Street
in the U.S. and falling borrowing costs for European governments have helped send the S&P 500 index up 4.6 percent for the year. Maybe the biggest boon to markets this year is the lack of scary headlines, said Jeff Lancaster, a principal at the investment rm Bingham, Osborn & Scarborough. When everybody is feeling distressed, anxious and worried as they were at the end of last year, it doesnt take a lot of good news for the mood to change, he said. It just takes a diminishing quantity of bad news. Many energy stocks jumped along with prices for natural gas and crude oil. Chesapeake Energy Corp., the No. 2 producer of natural gas in the United States, gained 6 percent after it said it plans to cut production, a response to the recent slump in natural gas prices. Natural gas futures rose 7.9 percent to $2.60 per 1,000 cubic feet. Gas futures were trading above $4 just six months ago. Stocks of other gas producers shot higher. Southwestern Energy Co. jumped 10 percent, the biggest gain in the S&P 500. Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. was close behind, rising 6.5 percent. Apache Corp., a producer of oil and gas, rose 1.6 percent after saying said it plans to buy Cordillera Energy Partners in a $2.85 billion deal. Its the largest merger announced in the U.S. this year.

Big movers
Stocks that moved substantially or traded heavily Monday on the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq Stock Market: NYSE Chesapeake Energy Corp.,up $1.32 at $22.28 Chesapeake Energy Corp.said it will drastically cut natural gas drilling and production in the face of decade-low prices. Halliburton Co.,down 76 cents at $35.44 The oileld services company posted a 50 percent jump in quarterly prot, but investors seemed disappointed it didnt beat estimates by a wider margin. International Rectier Corp., down 28 cents at $23.15 The chipmaker cut its revenue forecast for the last three months of 2011 because of lower demand in China and Europe and supply-chain disruptions linked to ooding in Thailand. Nasdaq Research In Motion Ltd.,down $1.44 at $15.56 Founders Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis step down as co-CEOs of the BlackBerry maker, which continues to lose market share to Apples iPhone and phones running Googles Android. PetMed Express Inc.,up $1.24 at $12.51 The pet products retailer reported better-thanexpected fourth-quarter sales of animal medicine,primarily due to a rise in online orders. Netix Inc.,down $6.28 at $93.96 Investors fear that nancial aftershocks from a recent customer backlash and costs of international expansion will saddle the video subscription service with worse losses than analysts have projected. Mellanox Technologies Ltd., down $2.27 at $31.35 The maker of switches and adapters for data servers slashed prices for some of its products in an effort to drive sales. Rimage Corp.,down $1.35 at $11.83 The CD and DVD production company cut its fourth-quarter outlook due to costs from its acquisiton of a video production company.

NEW YORK The S&P 500 index eked out a tiny gain Monday while traders kept an eye on talks in Europe to cut Greeces crushing debt load and prevent a global nancial crisis. Other indexes ended slightly lower. The S&P added 0.62 of a point to close at 1,316 on Monday. The broad market measure has now closed higher on 12 of 14 days this year. European stocks and the euro rose after the continents nance ministers put pressure on banks that hold Greek government bonds to accept new ones that are worth half as much and carry a lower interest rate. The Greek stock market gained 5 percent, and indexes in Germany, France, Spain and Britain all advanced less than 1 percent. The euro rose more than a penny to $1.302, close to its highest level against the dollar this year. Negotiators are trying to prevent a disorderly default by Greece in March. The worst-case scenarios include a credit crisis similar to what happened after the Lehman Brothers investment bank fell in 2008. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 11.66 points to 12,708.82. Thats a loss of 0.1 percent. The Nasdaq composite index fell 2.53 points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,784.17. Stocks are still off to a strong start in 2012. Investors biggest fears have slowly faded.

Fed likely to hint of no rate increase before 2014

By Martin Crutsinger

WASHINGTON It could be quite a while yet before the Federal Reserve starts raising the interest rates its kept at record lows for three years. Maybe not before 2014. Thats the thinking of many analysts as the Fed prepares this week to provide more explicit clues about how long

short-term rates will likely stay near zero. Starting when their policy meeting ends Wednesday, Fed members plan to forecast the direction of those rates four times a year. The clearer guidance will accompany the Feds usual quarterly predictions of growth, unemployment and ination. The new hints about rates are part of a Fed drive to make its communications

with the public more transparent. The more immediate goal is to assure consumers and investors that theyll be able to borrow cheaply well into the future. No announcements are expected Wednesday of any further Fed action to try to lift the economy. Most analysts think Fed members want to put off any new steps, such as more bond purchases, to see if the economy can extend the gains its made in recent months.

Googles 4Q lobbying bill triples to $3.76 million
SAN FRANCISCO Googles U.S. lobbying bill more than tripled to $3.76 million in the fourth quarter as the Internet search leader fought proposed changes to online piracy laws and sought to inuence a wide range of other issues that could affect its fortunes. The amount that Google Inc. spent making its political points from October through December is by far the companys highest lobbying tab for any three-month period since Googles Washington ofce opened in 2005. The total compared with a lobbying budget of $1.24 million during the nal three months of 2010 and $2.38 million in the third quarter of 2011. For all of 2011, Google spent $9.7 million on political persuasion, nearly doubling from $5.2 million in 2010. The company disclosed its fourth-quarter lobbying gures in documents led late Friday with the U.S. House clerks ofce. Googles lobbying expenses have been rising steadily against a backdrop of intensied U.S. government scrutiny of the companys acquisitions and business practices. The focus has been prompted by complaints alleging that Google is abusing its dominance of the lucrative Internet search market to stie competition and muscle its way into other markets.

News Corp plans US Spanish-language TV network

LOS ANGELES Rupert Murdochs News Corp. is launching a Spanish-language broadcast TV network that aims to bring the avor of the Fox network to Hispanic audiences in the U.S. The move is touted as a bold entry into a market dominated by top-ranked Univision and No. 2 Telemundo, in the same way that Fox rattled broadcasters ABC, CBS and NBC with its debut a quarter century ago. The company said Monday that the new network, MundoFox, will be launched in September or October in partnership with Colombia-based RCN Television Group. RCN already produces popular shows for one of Univisions junior networks in the U.S., TeleFutura. RCNs biggest hits include El Capo and La Hija del Mariachi.

Plenty of blame to go around

s my Facebook friends can attest, I was pretty hard on San Francisco 49ers punt returner Kyle Williams, after his muffed punt and fumbled punt led to 10 points by the New York Giants including the game-winning eld goal in overtime in the NFC championship game Sunday. After sleeping on it, however, Ive softened my stance just a bit. I still feel those two plays cost the 49ers their rst trip to the Super Bowl since 1995 but, as the players said after the game, the game was lost as a team. Which has to include the coaching staff, who, I believe, ultimately failed Williams. Given the enormity of the game, Williams relative lack of punt return experience, and the wet, windy weather, the 49ers coaching staff should have given Williams two strict instructions: if you cant catch it easily, get away from it; and if you can catch it cleanly, fair catch the ball. With those two rules in mind, neither of his gaffes would have happened Sunday. Those were just two of the biggest errors Sunday. Like any football coach will tell you, a game hinges on a half dozen plays. Williams miscues were but two. What were the others? Heres how I saw it: A way too conservative offense. Granted, the eld was sloppy, it was rainy and windy, yet that didnt prevent New York quarterback Eli Manning from throwing the ball 58 times, completing 32 for 316 yards. Alex Smith? He threw just 26 times, completing just 12. He threw just eight passes in the rst half. Sure, two of those were long scoring throws to Vernon Davis and they did rush for 150 yards, but the 49ers needed to open up the offense more if they wanted to win. An offensive line that returned to its sieve-like ways. One of the reasons

Akers tells fans to lay off Kyle Williams

SANTA CLARA Kyle Williams is ignoring the barrage of hateful, hurtful, even threatening comments he has received via social media in the aftermath of his ill-timed fumble that cost the San Francisco 49ers the NFC championship game against New York. Williams said Monday he takes full responsibility for his fumble on a punt return in overtime Kyle Williams of a 20-17 loss to the Giants on Sunday night that set up Lawrence Tynes winning eld goal, calling the moment painful. I really didnt pay attention to Twitter. All

SANTA CLARA Jim Harbaugh arrived as the new coach of the 49ers a year ago challenged with turning around San Franciscos once-proud franchise in the midst of a lockout and minus the usual offseason preparation time with his players. He did it, and then some. And he did it his own blue-collar, rah-rah way. Even Harbaugh acknowledged Monday it was no easy accomplishment. A day after his team lost the NFC championship game 20-17 in overtime to the New York Giants to miss a chance at the Super Bowl, Harbaugh regrouped and told his team how proud he is of this special season. Whos got it better than us? No-body! became a mantra for the NFC West champions (14-4), who ended an eight-year stretch without a playoff berth or winning record and then became a surprise participant in the NFC title game after beating Drew Brees and the Saints in the divisional round. As Sir Andrew Barton said: Fight on my men, were hurt but not slain. Well lay down and bleed a while. Then well rise and ght

again, Harbaugh said. Ive said so often how proud I was of this team. I thought they played their hearts out. I thought we were a well-coached team. Be very proud of our guys. They stand toe-to-toe and ght every time they go out onto the eld. It didnt have the ending that we wanted. The football gods had a different ending in mind for this ball game. Harbaugh took a double hit after big brother, John, and the Baltimore Ravens lost Sundays rst game to New England. No Superbaugh this year. That was another painful thing, Harbaugh said. As he looks back, Harbaugh can point to all the progress made with a roster featuring only a handful of new faces from the group that went 6-10 last season and saw coach Mike Singletary red with one week left. Harbaugh, the 15-year NFL quarterback, left Stanford for a chance to prove he could coach at the highest level. He made it clear he didnt care to make friends along the way, aside from in his own building. After a win at previously unbeaten Detroit

In PAL girlssoccer,defense is key to success
By Julio Lara

By Julio Lara

Six games into the regular season and we know one thing for sure: When it comes to Peninsula Athletic League girls soccer, defense is king (or queen?). In a way thats to be expected in 2012. Coming into the season, the biggest question for the league was how it was going to replace a crop of talented and lethal strikers? As it turns out, we were asking the wrong question. That talented group of attackers and nishers has been replaced by an equally gifted bunch of defenders. And there is plenty of

talent to go around. Consider the team that sits atop the Bay Division, all alone at 5-0-1 Carlmont. Prior to the start of the season, Carlmont head coach Tina Doss would have been the rst to tell you that her team wasnt going to score many goals. Our issue is, we might have trouble scoring, she told the Daily Journal following her teams 1-0 win over San Mateo to start the season. But teams are going to struggle to score against us. Turns out, Doss is a great coach and a prophet. The Scots have all but shutdown six

By the time this week is over, the Peninsula Athletic League will be halfway through its regular season. And that gives spectators an opportunity to evaluate what weve seen at the seasons midway point. We start in girls basketball where, no surprise, the Terra Nova Tigers are the biggest cats in the zoo. But even at 4-0, it hasnt been all smooth sailing for the girls from Pacica. On a couple of occasions, the Tigers have found themselves in close ball games at halftime (against Mills and San Mateo most notably). Then, perhaps after taking a bucket

Sharks fall to Edmonton


U.S.women seek payback against Mexico

VANCOUVER, British Columbia Heather Mitts remembers the feeling walking off the eld in Cancun, having been a part of the rst and only loss the U.S. womens soccer team has ever suffered in a qualifying match for the World Cup or Olympics. It was awful, Mitts said. It was obviously for us a real wakeup call. We denitely werent prepared. We werent prepared, and they came out and they played great against us. Final score: Mexico 2, United States 1. It was Nov. 5, 2010. Mexico had punched its ticket to the World Cup. The Americans would have to play three more games to get there. The opportunity for payback has arrived. The U.S. plays Mexico on Tuesday for rst place in their group in the CONCACAF qualifying tournament for the London Olympics. Thats obviously the game thats been marked on our calendars this entire tournament, forward Abby Wambach said. And, yes, the teams have met once since the game that many consider to be among the biggest upsets in soccer history, but it was an exhibition in New Jersey last June, a warmup for the World Cup won 1-0 by the U.S. Abby Wambach That hardly counted as revenge. No. Absolutely not, Mitts said. That was a friendly. This is Olympic qualifying. It doesnt matter if were playing Mexico or not; we still have to win these games to get to the next step. I think it does add to it that we are playing Mexico and the revenge factor does help. Beyond having a score to settle, the game is a vital one. The region only gets to send two teams to London, and four remain in the hunt. The winner of the U.S.-Mexico game was expected to draw an easier match against Costa Rica in the do-or-die seminals, while the loser was projected to face off against the formidable Canadians. Coach Pia Sundhage and her players spent much time contemplating what went wrong in Cancun 14 months ago. Sure, the Mexicans had home-eld advantage the rowdy crowd spent the game chanting and throwing cans, bottles, paper and other objects toward the field but its a brutal fact that the Americans were so used to winning that complacency had settled in.

EDMONTON, Alberta Taylor Hall scored the winning goal in a shootout and the Edmonton Oilers snapped a three-game skid with a 2-1 victory over the Pacic Divisionleading San Jose Sharks on Monday night. Edmontons Devan Dubnyk was the rst star of the game, stopping 44 shots through overtime and three more in the shootout. Jordan Eberle scored in regulation for the Oilers (18-26-4), who won for the second time in 10 games and sixth in 26 outings. Logan Couture had the lone goal for the Sharks (26-14-6), who have lost three straight and four of ve. Dubnyk saw the bulk of the early action, and had luck on his side in the rst period. Shawn Horcoff gave up the puck behind the Oilers net, and Jamie McGinn got off a slap shot from the slot, but the puck rattled off the post. The Sharks outshot Edmonton 13-5 in the scoreless rst period. The Oilers opened the scoring seven minutes into the second when Jeff Petrys shot deected off a Sharks defender right to the stick of Eberle, who scored his 18th of the season into a wide-open net as goalie Thomas Greiss moved the other way. Oilers defenseman Andy Sutton got the crowd revved up with about 6 minutes left in the second period when he leveled McGinn with a clean body check at the blue line. The shots continued to heavily favor the Sharks, 26-12 through 40 minutes. San Jose came close to getting the tying goal three minutes into the third when John McCarthy almost caught Dubnyk napping with a quick wraparound attempt. The Sharks lost veteran defenseman Brent Burns ve minutes into the third when he had a knee-to-knee collision with Oilers forward Ales Hemsky.

L.A.Dodgerssearch for new owner begins


NEW YORK Some bidders for the Los Angeles Dodgers have started talking with each other about combining their groups, even before initial offers for the bankrupt team were submitted Monday. Two bidders said talks about possible group mergers were ongoing. They both spoke on condition of anonymity because Blackstone Group, which is managing the sale for owner Frank McCourt, made them sign nondisclosure agreements. It would be a shock if they dont start talking merger, said Marc Ganis, president of the Chicago-based consulting rm Sportscorp, which is not involved. I think well get a halfdozen parties that are actually in the bid, plus or minus one. Blackstone will analyze all of the initial bids and then select up to 10 perhaps this

week but maybe next to forward to Major League Baseball, which already has started due diligence on some. Those picked must pay MLB $25,000 to cover the costs of baseballs investigation. The actual cash paid in a sale gures to be depressed by the teams debt, which stands at $573 million, according to a ling in U.S. Bankruptcy Court last Friday. Because of the debt, the price may not top the record price for a baseball franchise, the $845 million paid by the Ricketts family for the Chicago Cubs in 2009. Even then the amount of cash needed is huge, and baseball likely will be wary of the leverage allowed to the incoming owners. Among the groups thought to have the most money: Steve Cohen of the hedge fund SAC Capital Advisors and baseball and basketball agent Arn Tellem

former Los Angeles Lakers star Magic Johnson, former Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals president Stan Kasten and Guggenheim Partners chief executive officer Mark Walter former Los Angeles Dodgers manager Joe Torre and real estate developer Rick Caruso former Dodgers owner Peter OMalley the family of the late Roy E. Disney and Stanley Gold of Shamrock Holdings. OMalley has discussed combining with the Disney-Gold group, as first reported last week by the Los Angeles Times, and OMalley may be talking with others. Additional groups who have said they were bidding include: former agent and current Chicago White Sox special assistant Dennis Gilbert, talk show host Larry King and Jason Reese of Imperial Capital


Wednesday when they face a team in Bulingame who is, at least offensively, red-hot. After starting the season at an eye-popping 0-4, the Panthers have won two straight by a combined score of 16-2 (wins over Capuchino and San Mateo). The wins had to have been therapeutic for a Panthers team full of offensive talent, but marred by injuries and youth in their defense. It isnt a coincidence that defensive-oriented teams sit near the Scots at the top portion of the Bay table. Aragons has been one of the best all season long and were it not for that one lapse against the Scots, the defensive focus might have fallen on them rst. No one is more physical in the back than the Dons who have gotten tremendous play by captain Rachel Kiligrew en route to a 5-1-0 start. Perhaps more valuable though has been the play of Marissa Bonglio, who might be the best 1-v-1 defender in the league. And you cant overlook the play of Gianna Mendez on the right wing. Quietly, the junior defender is establishing quite the reputation. Friday night and a loss to the Panthers prior to that would probably put them at 1-4 and 9-9 overall with ve games left on their schedule. The same can be said about the Panthers who, if they lose against the Vikings, would then face a San Mateo team that already beat them this year (59-52). In the Ocean Division, there will be two intra-city rivalries to put a bow on the seasons rst half. South San Francisco will visit El Camino as they search for their rst league win. But the most intriguing of the matchups takes place in Daly City where Jefferson will battle Westmoor. Both teams are 3-1 and the winner will have the upper hand as the season turns to its latter stage. In the Lake, all eyes will be on the Woodside at 3-2-1 has quite the crop of young defenders as well, led by the tall Gianna Rosati, who is only a sophomore. San Mateo will have their defense tested this week in a different way. Absent from their 4-2 loss to Burlingame was All-League goalkeeper Karyn Jacobs. Jacobs is invaluable to San Mateo because, not only is she one of the top keepers in the league, but she often plays the role of sweeper as well when teams try to catch the Bearcats on balls over the top. There is no one better in the PAL at reading that play and coming out to support than Jacobs. The Danielle Coyle-led defense will be under a lot of pressure, so the emergence of players like Kelly Ghiorso and youngster Katie Wischer will be huge if San Mateo plans to stay in the PAL hunt. In the Ocean Division, Hillsdale put on quite the defensive show against Sequoia last week, winning 2-0 with a formula similar to Carlmonts head coach Samia Shomans depth of defenders has allowed her to move talented playJan. 27 rematch atop the standings when Hillsdale tries to avenge an opening night loss to Sequoia. The Knights better not look to far ahead though. Before they face the Cherokees, they have a tough matchup against Wooside, who is off to a 2-1 start following a preseason record of 2-6. In PAL boys basketball, the story of the week was the return of Burlingames Frankie Ferrari. The sophomore point guard returned from a hand injury with vengeance, scoring 18 points in a win over Hillsdale. That, coupled with El Caminos rst loss in league play, means that we have a tight race as we head into the seasons latter portion. Handing the Colts their rst loss was Mills, who defended their home ers like Kayla Coleman up front to score goals while still feeling secure in the back. In their game against Sequoia, whos only a game behind the Knights at 5-1, Hillsdales team defense was instrumental in shutting down the always-electric and super dangerous Lily Discher. Their defense broke up a lot of stuff, Sequoia head coach Melissa Schmidt told the Daily Journal after the game. We were having a hard time breaking through them because they were always in the right place and they were incredibly quick. The Knights next test comes against Mills on Tuesday and the Vikings wont be a pushover. Like Shoman, Caroline Tiziani has her team playing unied defense. They sit in third place behind the aforementioned teams at 3-1 following back-to-back win in which they outscored El Camino and Westmoor 9-0. The Vikings have six clean sheets to their name this season.

of their opponents. Their lone blemish was a 1-1 draw with MenloAtherton, who many consider to be one the more explosive teams in the league. The key lies in Carlmonts defensive depth. While they dont have experience up top, their slew of natural defenders scattered across the eld allows for a universal understanding of what theyre trying to accomplish defensively as a team. The back has beneted greatly with the play of sweeper Malak ElKhatib, who went toe-to-toe physically with a tough Aragon team and saw her squad come out with a 1-0 win last week. Credit there, however, can go out equally to players like Carly Richardson and Mary Cochran. That lone goal was actually scored by defender-turnedattacker Jacqueline Reliford. Carlmonts nal test of the seasons first half will come

shut out The Kings Academy to capture their latest league win Monday. Menlo jumped in front in the 30th minute when Sophie Sheeline headed in a Jaye Boissiere cross from eight yards out. Menlo turned up the heat in the second half. Boissiere found the net rst on a strike from 22 yards out for the 2-0 lead. Then Boissiere drove another 20 yard shot past the goalkeeper for Menlos third goal 12 minutes later. Chandler Wickers scored the nal goal with a well-placed shot into the corner from 17yards out. Menlos defense, led by Shannon Lacy, Hannah Rubin, Sienna Stritter and freshmen Alexandra Walker was strong throughout the match limiting Kings to seven shots on goal.

Menlo 4, The Kings Academy 0

Speaking of great defense, Menlo court and beat El Camino 49-47. The win was huge and has the Vikings sitting pretty at 3-0 and, come Wednesday, the Panthers will try to put a mark in their loss column. A Burlingame win coupled with an El Camino victory over Hillsdale would have the top three teams in the Bay Division within a half game of each other. In Ocean play, it looks like Aragon will cruise into the second half of the year as the clear favorite to take the division crown. At 4-0, the Dons face off against Carlmont, who only has one win so far in league play. The highlight of the week will be Menlo-Atherton against Half Moon Bay. Both teams are in the middle of a pack and cannot afford another loss if they have any aspirations of

of cold water to the proverbial face, Terra Nova roared back in the second half and ran their opponents out of the gym. But the question remains: Is this a good thing for the Tigers, who have their sights sent on doing well in the Central Coast Section playoffs? Lapses like these arent good when you play the bestof-the-best in the postseason. The focus this week should be on Mills though. The Vikings are 1-2 in league play and will close out the seasons rst half by visiting a 1-3 Burlingame team. Simply put, its make or break time for both teams. Mills has a trip to Terra Nova on

catching the Dons. Keep your eyes on the Lake Division this week. The Capuchino Mustangs, who lead the division with a 3-1 record, have Wednesday off. But come Friday, the Mustangs will have company atop the division table. Thats because Terra Nova and San Mateo, who both sit at 2-1, will battle it out Wednesday night. The Bearcats are coming off a win over cellar-dweller Oceana but will have to contend against the Tigers big-two in Jaylend Jones and Nick Manessis. Jones is near the top of the PAL scoring table with a 14.4 points per game average. Manessis has followed up his strong showing on the football eld with an 11.6 points per game average, along with five rebounds.

Tice will not interview

for Oakland Raiders job

Public memorial set for Joe Paterno

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. Joe Paternos family said Monday the legendary football coach will get a two-day viewing and a public memorial this week on the Penn State campus, two months after the university summarily fired him over the phone. The family Joe Paterno gave no details on who might be invited or asked to speak at the memorial Thursday at the basketball arena, which can hold 16,000 people. Penn State spokeswoman Lisa Powers said the specics were still being worked out with the Paternos. But many alumni and students say Paterno was treated shabbily by the Board of Trustees in November, and trustees and other members of the administration might not be made to feel welcome at the memorial for the 85-year-old coach, who died Sunday of lung cancer. I dont think its going to be heavily laden with administration and trustees, said trustee Linda Strumpf, who lives in New York and will not attend. This is something the family is putting together and not the university. I dont think the university wants to be in a position to tell them what a memorial service looks like. But trustee Al Clemens said he will be there to honor a man he described as a good friend. This is really a family thing, and so were just going to go as individuals, Clemens said. Joes a great guy. No matter was the situation was in the last two months, it doesnt take away from what hes done through history for so many people. Hes just been tremendous. The viewing will be held Tuesday and Wednesday at a campus spiritual center, followed by a private funeral Wednesday afternoon. The public memorial will be at the Jordan Center and is expected to draw thousands. Michael Day, a 1973 Penn State graduate from Hagerstown, Md., whose father taught there and whose four children all have Penn State degrees, said the trustees were wrong to fire Paterno and he believes they will ultimately be replaced. He said he hopes they dont attend. I think the Penn State community is separate from the Penn State Board of Trustees, he said. The Board of Trustees has separated itself from the Penn State community, and the Penn State community loves Joe Paterno and always will. So its appropriate for the Penn State community to honor Joe Paterno in this service. Paterno was red Nov. 9 after he was criticized over his handling of child sex-abuse allegations leveled against former assistant Jerry Sandusky in 2002. Pennsylvanias state police commissioner said that in not going to the police, Paterno may have met his legal duty but not his moral one.

ALAMEDA Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice will not interview for the Oakland Raiders vacant head coaching job as originally planned. Tice had been scheduled to meet with Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie on Tuesday at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. But the Bears said Monday that interview wont take place because the Raiders have moved onto the second phase of their interview process. McKenzie has been searching for a replacement for Hue Jackson, who was red Jan. 10 after going 8-8 in his only season on the job. McKenzie red Jackson on his rst day on the job, saying he wanted his own man as head coach. The Raiders have been tightlipped about the search, but McKenzie told Comcast SportsNet Bay Area that a hiring could come this week. McKenzie is at the Senior Bowl scouting for the draft. McKenzie has already interviewed Denver defensive coordinator Dennis Allen, Philadelphia offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, former Miami interim coach Todd Bowles, New Orleans offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. and Green Bay linebackers coach Winston Moss for the job. ESPN reported Monday that Allen would get a second interview, which is expected to be held this week at

the Senior Bowl. The Broncos nished 20th in the league in total defense this season and were 24th in the league in scoring defense at 24.4 points per game in his rst year as coordinator in Denver. Allen has been secondary coach the previous three seasons with the Broncos. He has also coached for the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints.

Giants-49ers NFC title game draws huge audience

NEW YORK The New York Giants overtime victory over the San Francisco 49ers was the thirdmost watched conference championship game in 30 years. New Yorks 20-17 win for the NFC title Sunday on Fox had a 30.6 fast national rating and 44 share, Nielsen Media Research said Monday. The rating was up 9 percent from the 28.1/50 for Green Bays 21-14 win over Chicago in the early conference championship last year on Fox and an increase of 8 percent from the 28.3/43 for Pittsburghs 2419 victory over the New York Jets in the last game on CBS. The game drew 57.6 million viewers, according to Fox, trailing only San Franciscos win over Dallas on Jan. 10, 1982, which featured Dwight Clarks famous leaping touchdown catch (68.7 million), and New Orleans overtime victory over Minnesota on Jan. 24, 2010 (57.9 million).

Kelly decides to stay with Ducks


PORTLAND Oregon head coach Chip Kelly announced Monday that hes remaining with the Ducks, though he says he was attered by the interest shown in him by the NFLs Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I enjoyed meeting with the Glazer family and General Manager

Mark Dominik, but after numerous discussions, I concluded that I have some unnished business to complete at the University of Oregon, Kelly said in a statement released through the school. The Bucs are searching for a new head coach after firing Raheem Morris after nishing last in the NFC South.

Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens said Oregon granted Tampa Bay permission to talk to Kelly. We are pleased with Coach Kellys decision to remain as our head coach, Mullens said. Coach Kelly has provided great leadership and remains committed to building on our position among the elite college football programs in the country.

OAKLAND Rudy Gay scored 23 points, three in the nal 23 seconds, and the surging Memphis Grizzlies rallied from 20 points down in the second half to beat the Golden State Warriors 91-90 on Monday night. Mike Conley had 20 points and nine assists for the Grizzles, who extended their winning streak to seven games with one of the biggest comebacks in franchise history. Memphis trailed 63-43 with 3:23 left in the third quarter, then pulled within 16 heading into the fourth. The rst-place Grizzlies scored 39 points over the nal 12 minutes to remain a half-game ahead of San Antonio in the Southwest Division. Marc Gasol added 15 points and 11 rebounds while Tony Allen had 14 points and eight rebounds for the Grizzlies (10-6). Monta Ellis had 20 points and ve assists for Golden State, which was outscored 11-5 over the nal 2:15. The Grizzlies kicked off their four-game West Coast trip with a win despite getting outplayed for most of the night before breaking loose in the fourth quarter. Allen had 10 points in the nal period, Conley added nine and Marreesse Speights scored all eight of his points to help fuel the comeback. Conley came up big on both ends of the court.

Tuesday Jan. 24, 2012

San Francisco fell short 30 years after the Niners two-decade run began under the late Bill Walsh with the rst of ve Super Bowl championships. Harbaugh used some of the same methods as the Hall of Fame coach and his unique version of Walshs West Coast offense. The main symmetry between the teams is sort of coincidental but not really getting the coach from Stanford that we did back in 79 and the Niners did here this year has made just a huge difference in the culture and the winning attitude and the approach of this football team, former 49ers offensive lineman Randy Cross said . I guess its simplistic to credit just one person because its never just one person. They were really looking for the individual who was going to kind of take that place by the scruff of the neck and drag it into this decade and form it in sort of his vision. They thought various people along the way were that guy but they found it in Jim. up to it and move forward. Kicker David Akers took to Twitter on Monday asking people to stop with the harsh remarks directed toward his teammate, saying ppl need to get a grip! Leave Kyle alone! He also reminded everybody the NFC West-champion 49ers (14-4) win and lose together, so there would David Akers be no nger-pointing in the locker room. Im irritated with the way people are treating him, absolutely, Akers said. I think its ridiculous. You know, get a grip on what lifes about. He went out and he put his soul out there. Thats what he does. He was not trying to do anything other than make an incredible San Franciscos defense ranked No. 1 against the run and allowed only three touchdowns rushing and all in the nal two games and the Niners had 38 takeaways to only 10 turnovers for a plus-28 turnover differential. That matched the second-best mark in NFL history since 1941. We let an opportunity get away from us, one of those chances that dont come around often, AllPro linebacker Patrick Willis said. It hadnt been around here for a while and we let it slip away from us. Only time will heal that. ... I dont believe in moral Patrick Willis victories. Theres a lot we can look back on and be thankful about, considering where we have been in the past; theres a lot of positives we can build on. The 49ers plan to bring back quarterback play for this team. He had a great kickoff return. Mistakes happen. We all make mistakes. But when youre out there truly battling to do the best you can, my hat goes off to him, to anybody that does that. Many of the 49ers spent the time after the game and into Monday thinking about the missed chances, and not just by Williams. It doesnt surprise me, coach Jim Harbaugh said of players supporting Williams. This is a class bunch of guys, a class group, a class team. They have never been a nger-pointing group. Williams has spoken to his father, Chicago White Sox general manager Ken Williams, and also heard from players around the league who offered their support. Ken Williams told ESPN on Monday that his son might have separated his shoulder in the third quarter before making a pair of critical blunders. rst half like it did in the second half, perhaps Williams mistakes are less damaging. Rushing only three linemen on New Yorks go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter. After the Giants recovered Williams muffed punt, they went on to take a 17-14 lead with just over eight minutes to play. On the 17-yard, Manning-to-Manningham scoring strike, the 49ers rushed just three linemen. Considering the defense was wreaking havoc on the Giants by that time, I cant understand how you send only three. That gives Manning more than enough time to pick apart eight men in coverage. All that being said, how can any 49ers fan really be that upset? No one in their right mind could have guessed the 49ers would reach the NFC championship game especially considering what the team had gone


Alex Smith, the 2005 No. 1 overall draft pick who orchestrated ve comeback wins during the regular season four of those on the road and another in a thrilling 36-32 victory against the Saints. Smith threw just ve interceptions and thrived under Harbaugh. Neither Harbaugh nor Smith offered any kind of timeline for when something might get done in regards to a new contract, though Smith will be rewarded with a raise and multiyear deal. He made $4.9 million in base salary this season plus earned a $1 million bonus for reaching the playoffs. Both sides are committed to getting something done in time, after everybody decompresses a bit. Not in a crazy rush at this point. Take our time a little bit. I think I have until March 13, thats when the contract is up, Smith said. I love it here. I love whats going on, I love this team the coaching staff, I love everything about it. No question I want to stay. Williams, lling in for injured return man Ted Ginn Jr., also fumbled with 11:06 left in regulation. The Giants won a challenge that the ball touched Williams right knee and Devin Thomas recovered. That gave the Giants the ball back at the 29 and Eli Manning then threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Mario Manningham with 8:34 remaining. The 23-year-old Williams, born in nearby San Jose, said Monday he still doesnt think the ball hit his knee. I told him to keep his head up. Things happen like that when youre trying to make a play, running back Frank Gore said. Kyle did a great job for us all year. We cant just point the nger at that. Its a football game. Things happen, and hell be ne. Hes going to work hard. Hes a great player and he made great plays for us this year. Im happy hes a teammate of mine. Ill back him up any time. through over the last decade of losing season after losing season. Most fans would have been happy with a .500 record. Instead, the team went above and beyond expectations. A 13-win regular season, an NFC Western Division title and the re-establishment of the Niners as a legit NFL squad? Cant be upset with that. The task moving forward for the 49ers? Building on this season. Im not asking for 13-3 again next season, but they have to contend for the division title again, make a playoff push and beat the teams theyre supposed to beat. An 8-8 or 6-10 mark next year would mean this year was just a uke.

on Oct. 16, Harbaugh made headlines for his second-long handshake and backslap with Jim Schwartz that infuriated the Lions coach. Harbaughs response in the aftermath when asked about reaching out to Schwartz: Apologies seem like excuses. And Harbaugh offered no excuses Monday after his Niners missed many opportunities to win. Kyle Williams lost his second fumble in overtime, setting up Lawrence Tynes winning eld goal. Its tough, said running back Frank Gore, who became the franchise rushing leader last month. Its over. Weve got to move on. I know weve got a great group of guys in here, guys who work hard, a coaching staff that works hard. Well get back.

the feedback I needed was family and friends, the guys in the locker room, Williams said. Instantly, Williams was made a villain on the Internet. He insisted its part of his job to face the criticism in the aftermath of his mistakes and not hide out in a difcult time. Perhaps that will go a little way in calming down the angry fans, some of whom wished harm on Williams and his family after the gaffes. Its one of those things you have to take accountability for, Williams said. Everybody is responsible for what they do on the eld. Its something that I was responsible for and I made a mistake and its time to own

Continued from page 11
Smith didnt throw more often is because it seemed like he was under constant pressure whenever he dropped back to pass. Its never good when your quarterback is the secondleading rusher in the game he ran six times for 42 yards. Some were designed runs, but many were Smith scrambling for his life. The Giants managed to sack Smith only three times, but the constant pressure prevented Smith from nding a comfort level. A non-existent wide receiving corps. It wasnt until late in the third quarter that I

realized Michael Crabtree was even playing. Of the 12 Smith completions, one went to a wideout a three-yard pass to Crabtree. Other than that, nothing. The 49ers were at a distinct disadvantage in the wide receiver department all season, but covered up that weakness with a strong play everywhere else. With New Yorks Victor Cruz destroying the 49ers defense in the rst half, it was a reminder of what San Francisco was missing. Failing to adjust to Cruz in the rst half. Dude caught 10 passes for 142 yards in the rst two quarters and, while the 49ers defense held him catch-less in the second half, the damage was already done. While Cruz didnt score any touchdowns, the 49ers inability to stop him helped the Giants set up their rst two scores and extended numerous other drives. If the defense played him in the


pelvic exams. The worry: If given too often, these tests can waste time and money, and sometimes even do harm if false alarms spur unneeded follow-up care. It begs the question: Just what should be part of my doctors visit? If youre 65 or older, Medicare offers a list of screenings to print out and discuss during the new annual wellness visit, a benet that began last year. As of November, more than 1.9 million seniors had taken advantage of the free checkup. For younger adults, figuring out whats necessary and whats overkill is tougher. Whatever your age, some major campaigns are under way to help. Theyre compiling lists of tests that your doctor might be ordering more out of habit, or fear of lawsuits, than based on scientific evidence that they are really needed. Too often, we order tests without stopping to think about how (if at all) the result will help the patient, wrote Dr. Christine Laine. Shes editor of Annals of Internal Medicine, which this month published a list of 37 scenarios where testing is overused. Not even physicians are immune when it comes to their own health care. Dr. Steven Weinberger of the American College of Physicians had minor elective surgery for torn knee cartilage about a year ago. The hospital required a pre-operative chest X-ray, an EKG to check his heart and a full blood work-up tests he says arent recommended for an otherwise healthy person at low risk of complications. Weinberger should know: He led the team that compiled that new list

Too many tests? Routine checks getting second look

By Lauran Neergaard

WASHINGTON Recent headlines offered a fresh example of how the health care system subjects people to too many medical tests this time research showing millions of older women dont need their bones checked for osteoporosis nearly so often. Chances are youve heard that many expert groups say cancer screening is overused, too, from mammograms given too early or too often to prostate cancer tests that may not save lives. Its not just cancer. Now some of the nuts-and-bolts tests given during checkups or hospital visits are getting a second look, too things like routine EKGs to check heart health, or chest X-rays before elective surgery. Next under the microscope may be womens dreaded yearly

timeline calls for the city to go out to bid for the work in spring with construction happening from May to October. Rebuilding residences is moving along. Of the 38 totally destroyed homes, 13 are under construction and seven are going through the planning or building review process, said Community Development Director Aaron Aknin. Of the 17 homes that were badly damaged, work on seven have been completed and work is being nalized on the others, he said. Residents will have a couple opportunities to discuss reconstruction. A community meeting will be held 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26 at the Church of the Highlands, 1900 Monterey Drive to talk about the extent of proposed improvements, schedule of work and possible street and landscape enhancements. Its not required, but those planning to attend are asked to RSVP to the public services department at 616-7065 or crestmoorconstruction@sanbruno.ca.gov. For a more informal setting, a Crestmoor Neighborhood Gathering will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 28 at the San Bruno Senior Center. Coffee and dessert will be served and city staff will be on hand to discuss reconstruction efforts. The council meets 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24 at the Senior Center, 1555 Crystal Springs Road.

Discuss how often you need a bone-density scan for osteoporosis. An initial test is recommended at 65, and Medicare pays for a repeat every two years. A study published last week found that a low-risk woman whose initial scan is healthy can wait up to 15 years for a repeat; those at moderate risk might need retesting in five years, high-risk women more often. Women under 65 need that first bone scan only if they have risk factors such as smoking or prior broken bones, say the two new overtesting lists. Most people with low back pain for less than six weeks shouldnt get X-rays or other scans, Weinbergers group stresses. Even those all-important cholesterol tests seldom are needed every year, unless yours is high, according to the college of physicians. Otherwise, guidelines generally advise every five years. Pap smears for a routine cervical cancer check are only needed once every three years by most women. So why must they return to the doctor every year to get a pelvic exam (minus the Pap)? For no good reason, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported last month. Pelvic exams arent a good screening tool for ovarian cancer, and shouldnt be required to get birth control pills, the report says. Yes, simple tests can harm. Cleveland Clinic cardiology chief Dr. Steven Nissen cites a 52-year-old woman who wound up with a heart transplant after another doctor ordered an unneeded cardiac scan that triggered a false alarm and further testing that in turn punctured her aorta. A close relationship with a primary care doctor who knows you well enough to personalize care maximizes your chances of getting only the tests you really need without wondering if its all just about saving money, says Dr. Glen Stream of the American Academy of Family Physicians. The issue is truly about what is best for patients, he says.

Director Klara Fabry and Crestmoor Reconstruction Project Manager Harry Burrowes. San Bruno assumes repair costs from the explosion will be reimbursed through a combination of the state disaster assistance program and citys property insurance. Improvements to the water system will include replacing and increasing the size of the water lines within Sneath Lane, and upper and lower Claremont avenues and new connections to existing water lines. Two new pressure-reducing stations will also be built. If approved, the contract allows for 75 working days in which to complete the project. Starting construction in February, for example, should result in work being nished in mid-May depending on the contractors schedule and possible weather delays, according to the staff report. BKF Engineers were brought on in June 2011 to design services related to the reconstruction of damaged infrastructure. Since then, the city has requested the engineers consider a larger area, more than 50 percent than originally requested. If approved, BKF will design improvements for underground services, like sewer mains and storm drains, and improvements to streetscape and trafc. The

of overused tests. All three examples are on it. If anyone should have objected, I should have objected, but I took the easy way out. I didnt want to be raising a fuss, quite frankly, he says. The college of physicians push for what it calls high-value, cost-conscious care and similar work being published in the Archives of Internal Medicine aims to get more doctors to think twice so their patients wont be put in that uncomfortable position. Another group, the National Physicians Alliance, is studying whether training primary care doctors in parts of Connecticut, California and Washington about the most overused care will change their habits. Medical groups have long urged patients not to be shy and to ask why they need a particular test, what its pros and cons are, and what would happen if they skip it. This spring, a campaign called Choosing Wisely promises to provide more specific advice. The group will publish a list of the top 5 overused tests and treatments from different specialties. Consumer Reports will publish a laymans translation, to help people with these awkward discussions.

are also impacted by the demise of RDAs. HIP Housings Home Sharing Program is facing a potential loss of $181,000 in RDA funding. The Home Sharing program partners those who have space in their homes with those who need affordable housing, thus creating new affordable opportunities using existing housing stock. Of those HIP Housing served, 98 percent were low income, 78 percent were homeless or at-risk of homelessness, 34 percent had disabilities and 28 percent were seniors. People often associate redevelopment agencies with large, high-prole projects like stadiums and commercial housing complexes, Kate Comfort Harr, executive director of HIP Housing, said in a prepared statement. I dont think most people realize that many of the services that promote healthy communities and keep low-income people housed, clothed and fed were also funded by the agencies. In the meantime, giving the city the former RDA power will allow it to sell two rsttime buyer units at Gateway Commons for $350,000; retain ownership of the former

police station at 2000 Delaware St.; ensure that there is sufcient time to develop a plan for the future of the Vendome Hotel; retain rst-time buyer loans valued at $6.6 million; and retain the potential for future repayment of a $1.8 million construction loan to build Peninsula Station on El Camino Real, according to the staff report. San Mateos RDA currently owns 13 properties, one of which is the old Kinkos property at Claremont Street and Fourth Avenue that was purchased for $5.3 million in 1998. That lot is now being used for parking. The RDA also owns the old police station at 2000 S. Delaware St., which it bought for about $6.4 million in 2007 for the construction of affordable housing. The Day Labor Center and parking lot at Fifth and Railroad avenues is also an RDA property, purchased in 1997 for $925,000. In the past two years, the citys RDA also bought two homes on South Fremont Street that will be held for resale as rst-time buyer units. The RDA spent about $450,000 on the purchase of those properties, according to the staff report. The San Mateo City Council will hold a special meeting at 5:45 p.m., tonight, conference room C, City Hall, 330 W. 20th Ave., San Mateo.

For now, some recent publications offer this guidance:

No annual EKGs or other cardiac screening for low-risk patients with no heart disease symptoms. Thats been a recommendation of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force for years. Yet a Consumer Reports survey of more than 8,000 people ages 40 to 60 found 44 percent of low-risk, people with no symptoms had undergone an EKG or similar screening. Simple blood pressure and cholesterol checks are considered far more valuable.

Study: Stem cells may aid vision in blind people

By Alicia Chang

LOS ANGELES Two legally blind women appeared to gain some vision after receiving an experimental treatment using embryonic stem cells, scientists reported Monday. While embryonic stem cells were first isolated more than a decade ago, most of the research has been done in lab animals. The new results come from the first tests in humans for a vision problem. Researchers caution the work is still very preliminary. This study provides reason for encouragement, but plans to now get such a treatment would be premature, said stem cell expert Paul Knoepfler of the University of California, Davis, who had no role in the research. Last summer, each patient was injected in one eye with cells derived from embryonic stem cells at the University of California, Los Angeles. One patient had the dry form of age-related macular degeneration, the most common cause of blindness. The other had a rare disorder known as Stargardt disease that causes serious vision loss. Theres no cure for either eye problem. After four months, both showed some improvement in reading progressively smaller letters on an eye chart. The Stargardt

patient, a graphic artist in Los Angeles, went from seeing no letters at all to being able to read five of the largest letters. However, experts said the improvement of the macular degeneration patient might be mostly psychological, because the vision in her untreated eye appeared to get better too. Both patients remain legally blind despite their improvements, said experts not connected with the study. One must be very careful not to overinterpret the visual benefit, said Vanderbilt University retina specialist Dr. Paul Sternberg, who is also the president-elect of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. The findings were published online Monday by the journal Lancet. This early test was meant to study whether the stem cell therapy was safe in people and not whether it would improve vision. Scientists at UCLA and Advanced Cell Technology, which funded the work, said they were pleased that there have been no signs of rejection or abnormal growth months after the procedure. Embryonic stem cells can transform into any cell of the body. Scientists are hoping to harness embryonic stem cells to create a variety of replacement tissues for transplant, but their use has been controversial because human embryos have to be destroyed to harvest the cells.

sun while his family searched desperately for their only child, Giannini said. Najdawi reportedly lied to his mother, had an altercation with his brother and ed to Redding where he ditched the Glock and was apprehended at a motel a week later. Chus body went undiscovered for two days, as passersby mistook the slumped man for somebody sleeping or passed out. Repeatedly, Giannini told jurors not to consider if alcohol, drugs or mental issues contributed to Najdawis actions because they will have that chance, if needed, during the sanity phase. But while McDougall countered that Najdawis state of mind is important to decide if the killing was premeditated, Giannini argued his actions spoke louder than words when he red into Chus head 11 times. There is no other reasonable explanation for that behavior, he said. Giannini also said Najdawi cant use alcohol or drugs as an excuse in the jail house attack which he characterized as an attempted murder rather than just an assault. Najdawi attacked up front and personal, strangling Lynch and refusing to let go until subdued by a correctional ofcer, Giannini said. McDougall, though, said if his client really wanted to purposely kill somebody that night in San Francisco he would have executed him in a dark alley rather than drive down the Peninsula. Najdawi may be guilty of a crime but it is certainly not rst-degree murder, McDougall said. He also argued there is no evidence Najdawi planned to kill Lynch. Najdawi remains in custody without bail.

but said the prosecution failed to meet its burden of proof that his client deliberately and with premeditation killed Jack Chu. With the defense never contesting that Najdawi red the shots, the strategy likely determines whether the jury convicts Najdawi, 28, of rst- or seconddegree murder. The jury is also weighing a jailhouse attack on Najdawis cellmate and, without getting inside his clients head, McDougall told them they cannot know beyond a reasonable doubt that the incident was an attempted murder. Unlike prosecutor Al Gianninis contention that motive does not matter, McDougall told jurors they have to understand why Najdawi acted to return guilty verdicts. He also said that is impossible without proof of what happened between the time a building surveillance camera captured a drunken Najdawi stumbling down a street after a night of drinking with Chu and less than 20 minutes later when shots were reported. We dont know what occurred in that time frame, McDougall said. Najdawi has pleaded both not guilty and not guilty by reason of insanity in Chus July 8, 2008 death and the jail attack on inmate John Lynch. If a jury convicts, they must then hear a secondary sanity phase to decide if he should be hospitalized or incarcerated. Giannini told jurors if it comes to that they can consider Najdawis mental state then but that this trial is about nothing other than the naked facts of the case. Giannini reiterated to jurors the same theme as his opening statements earlier this month Najdawi was determined to kill somebody that night whether it be

Chu, another man whom he reportedly said he wanted to shoot or a stranger he encountered while waving a Glock on a San Francisco street. This defendant formed a deadly state of mind ... and it started long before he put the bullets in Jack Chu, Giannini said, further characterizing the fatal shooting as a savage, cold-blooded killing. Chu, 27, and Najdawi, 31, drank heavily on July 7 leading into July 8 at two San Francisco bars where Najdawi paid the tab with his brothers stolen credit card. A friend testied Najdawi had a rearm with him that night as he often did. At 1:18 a.m., per a surveillance tape from a business, Chu walked down the street followed a short time later by Najdawi with the gun and laser sight visible. Najdawi stopped in the doorway of one business to urinate and the video footage showed him swinging the gun in the direction of headlights. Twenty minutes later, the pair drove to Lincoln Circle in Millbrae where shots were red and Najdawi drove the vehicle to the intersection of Chula Vista and Sanchez avenues in Burlingame. Najdawi headed to his mothers nearby home, leaving his friend to rot in the the council will hold a public hearing to discuss the possible ban which, if passed, would go into effect Sept. 1. Mayor Marge Colapietro was interested in hearing the communitys opinion at the meeting as well as learning about outreach efforts. Under the current proposal, businesses would not be able to distribute single-use bags and free paper carryout bags, Popp wrote. Stores can charge a minimum of 10 cents per bag, should a customer need to purchase one. Those paper bags must be comprised of at least 40 percent post-consumer recycled materials. Thicker reusable plastic bags are allowed but would also need to be imprinted showing the bag is made of at least 40 percent post-consumer recycled materials, Popp wrote. Millbraes proposal isnt an outright ban as there are exceptions to the rule. A variety of businesses would be exempt from the ban such as food vendors, dry cleaners and nonprofit organizations. Some types of bags like bakery item bags; meat and produce bags; pharmaceutical bags; flat greeting card bags; dry cleaning bags; and bags that hold live plants or small hardware items would be exempt, Popp wrote. At the same time, a county-wide ban one letter of intent with another reportedly forthcoming. The City Council also directed staff to explore an agreement between the owners of an adjacent 17-acre horse ranch to merge properties and facilitate the creation of subdivided lots along Marsten Avenue through a development agreement. The horse-ranch owners, however, sought an appraiser to determine the value of their own property and have not been in touch with city staff since September, according to a staff report. Belmont officials were also contacted by a group of property owners in April 2010 who asked if the city would be interested in buying a 14acre property near the San Juan Hills

larger grocery stores but would be open to discuss other alternatives such as setting requirements for businesses that are a certain size or have a sales volume over a particular minimum, said Ford. Plastic bags distributed at grocery stores and other retail establishments are seen as harmful to the environment and wildlife. Similarly, Millbrae previously passed an ordinance banning the use of food containers that are not recyclable. In October, Millbrae discussed banning single-use carryout bags from five grocery stores and supermarkets in town. At the direction of the City Council, the proposal was expanded to include all retail establishments which could affect about 50 businesses. Since then, the city developed an initial environmental report and negative declaration that was recently circulated. No public comments were submitted by the end of the comment period, according to a staff report by Director of Public Works Ron Popp. On Tuesday,

has been discussed since last year. Officials from numerous Peninsula cities met last week to discuss enacting a law similar to San Joses ban. San Joses bag-ban law went into effect at the beginning of the year. It bans retailers from handing out singleuse plastic bags. San Jose shoppers must bring reusable bags or buy paper bags for 10 cents each. San Carlos, San Mateo, South San Francisco, Foster City and Burlingame have joined a county working group to craft an ordinance that could be uniformly adopted. The uniform law proposes fines from $100 to $500. At the same meeting, Millbrae will discuss the recent Supreme Court decision allowing California to end redevelopment agencies. As a result, the council will consider naming the city as the successor organization allowing it to oversee property and housing assets secured previously by the Redevelopment Agency. The council meets 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24 at City Hall, 621 Magnolia Ave.

wonders what that minimum will mean. The amount of housing we might have to build will be greater than we initially thought, Lieberman said. City staff projected, in 2009, the sale of some of the lots could recoup the city anywhere from $225,000 to $1.75 million. The city has requested a letter of intent and qualifications from 10 developers for the San Juan Hills properties but so far the city has received only

city-owned property. Without street access and constraints to development, the 14-acre property was only valued at about $400,000, less than the property owners were willing to part with the land for. The city will conduct some community meetings related to developing the area with notication given to all property owners in the Skymont neighborhood. The Belmont City Council meets 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 24 at City Hall, 1 Twin Pines Lane, Belmont.
