SACRAMENTO Donald Trumps


election as president is giving a big
social-media boost to an unlikely
effort in the nations most populous
state: a plan to vote on seceding from
the union.
The Yes California Independence
Campaign hopes to put a question on
the November 2018 ballot that would
authorize a statewide independence
vote for spring 2019.
The effort drew little attention until
Tuesdays election, which also kept
Trumps fellow Republicans in charge
of Congress and raised the possibility
of a conservative shift on the U.S.
Supreme Court.
A look at whats happening:

THE TRUMP VICTORY


Campaign President Louis J.
Marinelli said the election results offer
further proof that California is more
progressive than the nation as a
whole.
Voters endorsed ballot measures that
included recreational marijuana and
increased taxes on the rich. Many
Californians were offended by Trumps
statements on immigration and other
issues.
People are starting to come to the
realization ... Wait a minute, this is
not the type of country we want to live
in, said Marinelli, who lost a primary bid for the state Assembly this
year.

Man charged with shooting


La Honda men committed
By Daniel Montes

www.smdailyjournal.com

BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

A North Carolina man who shot two people outside their La Honda home earlier this
year for no apparent reason, was committed
to a state mental health institution Tuesday
by a San Mateo County judge.
Bernard Hafler, 36, was committed to
Napa State Hospital for no more than three
years, after doctors had previously determined he was not competent to stand trial,
prosecutors said.
Hafler was charged with two counts of
attempted murder with a gun, one count of
residential burglary and one count of vehicle
theft. If convicted, he could potentially face
life prison, according to prosecutors.
Haflers case was continued to Jan. 13 for
a status conference to confirm that hes been
placed at the hospital, prosecutors said.
On March 12, Hafler shot two men and left
them with critical injuries after breaking
into their home, located near Mindego Hill
and Alpine roads, according to prosecutors.
The 75-year-old homeowner encountered
Hafler as he was leaving the mans house
around 7:15 a.m. The homeowner, who did
not know Hafler, then confronted him,
prompting Hafler to shoot the man in the
head and chest, prosecutors said.
When a tenant who lived in a back cottage
ran out to see what had happened, Hafler
fired several shots at the 53-year-old tenant,

Police reports

striking him in the head and chest as well.


Hafler then drove away in the homeowners 2006 Jaguar station wagon, according
to prosecutors.
The victims were taken to a hospital with
life-threatening injuries, but survived.
The station wagon was found abandoned
two days later at the Daly City BART station, prosecutors said.
About four days after the initial crime, a
Pacifica police officer spotted Hafler walking along Highway 1, south of Manor
Drive. When the officer tried to stop him,
the two got into a struggle.
During the fight, the two tumbled down an
embankment together and Hafler fired a single shot, missing the officer. The officer
disarmed Hafler and arrested him.
Hafler and the officer were both taken to a
hospital and treated for minor injuries. After
he was treated for the injuries, Hafler was
booked into Maguire Correctional Facility
in Redwood City.
Im glad hes going to get treatment. He
would not survive prison given his severe
mental condition, Haflers defense attorney Sam Giammona said. Now hes going
to get the treatment and medication he
needs.

Governor: Californias climate
fight wont stop under Trump
SACRAMENTO California will stay true to its liberal
priorities and wont back down from the fight against climate change following Donald Trumps
election as president, Gov. Jerry Brown
said Thursday.
Its incumbent on everyone, but especially the incoming Republican administration must take steps to heal the deep
divisions among Americans, the
Democratic governor said in a written
statement. California will do its part to
Jerry Brown find common ground whenever possible, he said.
But as Californians, we will also stay true to our basic
principles, Brown said. We will protect the precious
rights of our people and continue to confront the existential threat of our time - devastating climate change.
The election of Trump, who has pledged to roll back federal environmental regulations, and a Republican Congress
is a threat to Browns signature issue. He has travelled the
world to tout Californias aggressive actions to slow greenhouse gas emissions.
California voted overwhelmingly for Democrat Hillary
Clinton, and it has been eager to advance the top social,
economic and environmental priorities for liberals.

Teen dedicates life to finding


World War II combat veterans
By John Rogers
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES For as long as he


can remember, Rishi Sharmas heroes
havent been sports stars or movie
stars or any other kind of stars.
Theyve been the U.S. combat veterans who won World War II.
Alarmed that even the youngest of
them are now in their 90s and dying
each day by the hundreds, the
Southern California teenager has
launched a campaign to try to ensure
each ones legacy.
Im on a mission to in-depth film
interview a World War II combat veteran every single day, the earnest 19year-old says after a recent afternoon
spent in the living room of William
R. Hahn of Los Angeles, where
Sharma mined the 93-year-olds memories for hours.
His Canon 70D camera rolling, his

long, jet-black hair tied back in a


tight ponytail, the son of Indian
immigrants listened intently as Hahn
recounted how he received the Silver
Star for bravery by charging through
a hail of gunfire on Easter Sunday
1945 as Allied forces retook the
German town of Hettstandt.
Asked if he considers himself a
hero, Hahn chuckled.
Not really, said the retired metalshop teacher who had a bullet come so
close to him that it blew the canteen
on his belt to smithereens. Other
guys, he said, did similar things, and
not all came back to talk about it.
Sharma wants to meet and honor
every one who did, and he knows time
is not on his side.
Of the approximately 16 million
Americans who served in some capacity during WWII, some 620,000 survive, but they are dying at the rate of
nearly 400 a day, according to the

National Museum of World War II.


I want to create this movement
where people, where they just realize
that we have such a limited time with
these men who saved humanity, he
says. Lets try to learn as much as we
can from them and give them a proper send-off and make them feel like
their sacrifices they made were worth
it.
He figures hes got about 10 years
to do that so hes putting off college,
putting off finding a job, putting off
looking for a girlfriend, putting off
just about everything except occasionally eating and sleeping between
interviewing combat veterans.
Since childhood, Sharma says, hes
been fascinated by the sacrifices men
his age made during WWII, risking
their lives for freedom, then returning
home to raise families and take everyday jobs as they transitioned back to
civilian life.

Harris meets with immigrants


in L.A., vows to protect rights
By Christine Armario
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES Senator-elect


Kamala Harris met with immigrant
leaders in Los Angeles Thursday,
telling them she will fight to preserve protections advocates fear
could be dismantled once Donald
Trump becomes president.
Harris said she has already begun
communicating with colleagues in
Congress about what can be done to
protect initiatives such as Obamas
executive action to give legal status to undocumented children.
That policy allowed immigrants
who met certain age and education
requirements to gain legal status
and work authorization. It was
enacted through an order that can

be undone by any president in the


future.
The current attorney general
made her remarks surrounded by
immigrants holding campaign
signs that read Fearless for the
People and star-shaped balloons
covered in prints of the U.S. flag.
Some chanted No papers, no fear
and We will not be moved!
Part of what we are here to say
is, You are not alone, Harris
said.
Harris was elected Tuesday to
replace retiring U.S. Sen. Barbara
Boxer. She will be the first Indian
woman elected to a Senate seat and
the second black woman.
Speaking with leaders from the
Coalition for Humane Immigrant
Rights of Los Angeles, Harris said

California has an outsized stake in


the outcome of any federal action
on immigration because of the
states large immigrant population. More than a quarter of
Californias population was born
in a foreign country, according to
U.S. Census figures.
During his campaign, Trump
called Mexican
immigrants
rapists and advocated for mass
deportations. During his victory
speech he took struck a more conciliatory tone and called for unity.
Harris told immigrant leaders
she had faith in comments made
after the election in which members of both parties have vowed to
work together and promised to
work on passing immigration
reform.

SAN FRANCISCO A voterapproved ballot measure that


reduced penalties for certain drug
and property crimes applies to
prisoners convicted under plea
deals, the California Supreme
Court said Thursday.
A unanimous court overruled a
lower court decision that could
have limited the number of
inmates eligible for Proposition
47s benefits. The 2014 proposition requires misdemeanor rather
than felony sentencing for certain property and drug crimes and
permits inmates previously sentenced for these reclassified
crimes to petition for resentencing.
The Supreme Court said
Proposition 47 does not create an
exception for prisoners whose
sentences are based on plea deals
with prosecutors that included the
dismissal of more serious
charges.
Prosecutors argued that they
were entitled to have the original

charges reinstated if such prisoners chose to seek a reduced sentence. Those prisoners would otherwise be able to unfairly wriggle
out of the sentence their part of
the plea deal and get an added
benefit to which they were not
entitled, prosecutors said.
Many felony cases are resolved
by plea agreements. But legal
experts said the courts decision
will have limited impact because
most trial courts in the state have
been extending Proposition 47s
benefits to inmates with plea
deals even before Thursday ruling.
As of Sept. 30, more than
4,500 inmates were released under
Proposition 47, according to
state corrections officials.
There are obviously some people in this situation, but the vast
majority of people who could
benefit from this ruling already
have, said Michael Romano, a
lecturer at Stanford Law School
who co-authored Proposition 47.
Romano and other experts said
the state Supreme Court got the

Gangmember gets 20
years for attempted robbery
A 23-year-old man was sentenced to
20 years in state prison Wednesday
morning in connection with a 2013
attempted armed robbery at a jewelry

prosecutors.
In addition to the sentence, a judge
denied Leonard Gaines probation and
gave him credit for the 1,494 days hes
already served, San Mateo District
Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.
A jury had found Gaines guilty of
robbery, use of a firearm and possession of a firearm while being a felon,
according to Wagstaffe.
On Jan. 16, 2013, Gaines, along

with three other men, attempted to rob


Plaza Jewelers at 3303 Middlefield
Road, just outside of Menlo Park, at
gunpoint.
The robbers, however, fled in a white
sedan. As deputies followed the men,
the vehicle crashed into another vehicle, prosecutors said.
Two suspects were apprehended and
the handgun allegedly used in the
attempted robbery was recovered,
while two other men involved fled. A
third man was eventually arrested.
Sentencing for two of the men
involved in the attempted robbery was
put over Wednesday morning.
Raymond Bradford, 30, and Rodney
Mitchell, 24, will be sentenced on
Dec. 7, Wagstaffe said.
A jury had previously found Bradford

firearm in the course of gang activity.
The three men are all members of the
East Palo Alto Sunny Day gang and are
facing separate charges in connection

New focus on Electoral College


By Nancy Benac

WASHINGTON The fact that Hillary

vote but wont be president has some people

Thousands protest
Donald Trump win
By Deepti Hajela
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Demonstrators in both red


and blue states hit the streets for another day
Thursday to express their outrage over
Donald Trumps unexpected win, while the
president-elect sniped back in a Twitter
post.
Vocal demonstrations occurred from New
York to Los Angeles and each typically drew
a few hundred people, fewer than the thousands that gathered in various protests that
surged after it became clear Trump had won
Tuesdays election.
Late Thursday night, Trump went on
Twitter to take on the protesters. Trump
tweets: Just had a very open and successful
presidential election. Now professional
protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!
High-spirited high school students
marched through San Franciscos downtown, chanting not my president and
holding signs urging a Donald Trump eviction. They waved rainbow banners and
Mexican flags, as bystanders in the heavily
Democratic city high-fived the marchers
from the sidelines.
As a white, queer person, we need unity
with people of color, we need to stand up,
said Claire Bye, a 15-year-old sophomore at

Academy High School. Im fighting for my


rights as an LGBTQ person. Im fighting for
the rights of brown people, black people,
Muslim people.
In New York City, a large group of demonstrators once again gathered outside Trump
Tower on Fifth Avenue Thursday night. They
chanted angry slogans and waved banners
baring anti-Trump messages.
You got everything straight up and down
the line, demonstrator David Thomas said.
You got climate change, you got the Iran
deal. You got gay rights, you got mass
deportations. Just everything, straight up
and down the line, the guy is wrong on
every issue.
Protesters briefly shut down interstate
highways in Minneapolis and Portland,
Oregon. In Philadelphia, protesters near
City Hall held signs bearing slogans like
Not Our President, Trans Against Trump
and Make America Safe For All. About 500
people turned out at a protest in Louisville,
Kentucky and in Baltimore, hundreds of
people marched to the stadium where the
Ravens were playing a football game.
No arrests or violence were reported.
Another protest was building in Los
Angeles, where 28 people were arrested
Wednesday for blocking traffic during a
demonstration that also saw vandalism to
some buildings and a news truck.

Trump means angst for


Obamacare consumers
By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Donald Trumps election ushers in a time of high anxiety for


people with health insurance under
President Barack Obamas law, which
expanded coverage to millions but has
struggled to find widespread public acceptance.
While repeal now seems likely, that may
take Congress months. A replacement for
the 2010 health care law could take even
longer, and may retain some of its features.
Republicans are saying they want to protect
people who now are covered from losing
health care in the shift. While Congress
labors, look for the Trump administration
to use its regulatory powers to make
changes.
Voters dont want Washington to fix
Obamacare, they want to make health care
affordable, said House Ways and Means
Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, whose
committee oversees much of health care.
Im confident we will have more truly

affordable health care for just as many


Americans.
Its our goal to dismantle Obamacare and
actually focus on lowering the cost of coverage for people, said Sen. John Barrasso,
R-Wyo., a member of the Republican leadership. Its a commitment on behalf of
Congress and the president-elect to get this
done.
The rhetoric may sound familiar, but the
circumstances couldnt be more different.
Up until now, repeated Republican attempts
to repeal the Affordable Care Act have been
practice runs.
This will be real, and so will the consequences. Trump will have a four-year term in
the White House, but Congress faces the
voters again in two years.
With HealthCare.govs sign-up season
underway, theres little chance the program
will come to a crashing halt. Still, thats not
very reassuring for people like Lodiza
LePore of Bennington, Vermont, a photographer who pays about $80 a month for her
policy. The coverage is skimpy, she says,
but its there if she has a health problem.

The Electoral College was devised at the


Constitutional Convention in 1787. It was a
compromise meant to strike a balance
between those who wanted popular elections
for president and those who wanted no public
input. Alexander Hamilton wrote, If the
manner of it be not perfect, it is at least
excellent.
At the time, the country had just 13 states,
and the founders were worried about one state
exercising outsized influence, according to a
white paper from the U.S. Election
Assistance Commission. Small states were
worried that states with large populations
would have extra sway. Southern states with
slaves who couldnt vote worried that
Northern states would have a louder voice.
There were concerns that people in one state
wouldnt know much about candidates from
other states. The logistics of a national election were daunting. The thinking was that if
candidates had to win multiple states rather
than just the popular vote, they would have
to attract broader support.

HOW IT WORKS
The electoral system has been tweaked
over the years, but the gist endures. The
president is selected by a college of 538
electors from the states. Each state gets as
many electoral votes as it has members of
Congress, and the District of Columbia gets

three. To be elected president, the winner


must get at least half the total plus one or
270 electoral votes. Most states give all
their electoral votes to whichever candidate
wins the states popular vote. So while
Clinton is leading Trump in votes nationwide 47.7 percent to 47.5 percent, Trumps
total in the Electoral College stands at 290,
with races in Michigan and New Hampshire
yet to be called. In 2000, Democrat Al Gore
narrowly won the popular vote but lost to
Republican George W. Bush in the Electoral
College 271-266. Overall, there have been
four such cases of divergent elections.

THE PROS
A lot has changed since the Electoral
College system was established, making
many of the original reasons for its existence outdated: The U.S. now manages to run
national elections quite well. Voters nationwide have no shortage of information about
candidates. Slavery no longer exists. But
there are still concerns that small states and
rural areas would be ignored in favor of those
with bigger populations if the race hinged
strictly on the popular vote.

THE CONS
In 1967, a commission of the American
Bar Association recommended that the
Electoral College system be scrapped, finding it to be archaic, undemocratic, complex, ambiguous and dangerous. Fifty years
later, critics are still complaining, arguing
that the system results in huge swaths of the
country being ignored while candidates
focus on a dozen or so battleground states.
Its a terrible system, says George C.
Edwards III, a Texas A&M professor whos
written a book on the subject. Edwards tracks
every campaign stop by the major candidates, and he says big states that are sure to
vote for one candidate or another say,
California for the Democrats or Texas for the
Republicans now get completely ignored,
and small states largely get overlooked, too.

The economy that Trump inherits: Durable but sluggish


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Donald Trump


inherits a much sturdier economy
than the one Barack Obama carried
into his second term four years
ago. Back then, the scars of the
Great Recession were still fresh.
Joblessness was near 8 percent.
Pay was flat. Europe faced a grave
debt crisis that threatened to
spread across the Atlantic.
Now? The job market, with
steady hiring and just 4.9 percent
unemployment,
has
proved

durable. Pay is finally accelerating. Auto sales are near a record


pace. Housing is stronger.
Europes financial plight has stabilized.
Yet the economys long-standing shift toward workers with college degrees left people without
them stuck with dimmer job
opportunities and stagnant wages
a trend for which Trump blamed
trade deals that he said led manufacturers to move overseas.
The Americans who elected
Trump are longing not just for

change but for a reversal of the


Obama era one that will ignite
growth, slash taxes, restore lost
factory jobs and curb most federal
regulations.
Problem is, the economys most
vexing problems from an aging
workforce to listless productivity
to weak corporate spending
defy quick fixes. Trump has
pledged an economic renaissance
yet has avoided the broad policy
prescriptions widely seen as necessary for managing a government.

Remembering Wendy the Welder


By Elizabeth A. Brunette

o woman is arguably more


iconic in World War II erahistory than Rosie the
Riveter. While Rosie was riveting
ghter planes, her lesser known
cousin Wendy the Welder was welding battle ships across the Pacic
Northwest. By 1945, women across
the San Francisco Bay Area donned
denim overalls and wielded heavy
machinery in support of the war
effort, churning out nearly 4,600
ships in four years.
As part of President Franklin D.
Roosevelts Arsenal of Democracy,
aimed at out-producing the axis powers through superior industrial output,
more than 18 million women across
the country were enlisted in the steel
mills, foundries, automotive plants
and shipyards of America when traditional labor sources became unavailable. In direct support of the war
effort, these women took up riveting
and welding; some placed traditional
roles aside while others assumed dual
responsibilities of home and work.
The San Francisco Bay Area shipyards, a behemoth in producing warships and cargo vessels in support of
the war effort, accounted for nearly
half of all the ships produced nationally. With a lack of a manual labor
pool and a dwindling number of draftexempt men available, the shipyard
industry began hiring women to ll
the positions left vacant. By the
wars end, the shipyards of San
Francisco employed more than
240,000 U.S. women in the defense
capacity. Most of the women were
married, many had children at home.

These women
worked tirelessly
around the clock,
tending to children,
rationing food and
welding sections of
hulls.
More so than any
other city in the
Bay Area,
Richmonds population surged from a
sleepy 23,000 at the onset of the war
to a peak of 100,000 at the height of
the war in 1945. Of the four shipyards
built by Henry J. Kaiser during the
war and the 90,000 personnel of
which it employed, approximately
one-third was comprised of women.
Largely due to his new mass-production techniques, the Kaiser shipyards
of Richmond were able to reduce the
time to produce cargo ships from 14
months to eight weeks and were able
to produce Liberty Ships in two
weeks.
A welder at the Kaiser Liberty
Shipyards in Richmond, Janet Doyle
fashioned the iconic Wendy the
Welder movement, representing the
hard-working women of her era. The
plaque in front of the Rosie the
Riveter Memorial in Richmonds
Marina Bay is inscribed with the
quote (y)ou must tell your children,
putting modesty aside, that without
us, without women, there would have
been no spring in 1945.
While women have not always had
the opportunity to serve in the U.S.
military in a conventional capacity,
women have found other ways to
serve. Wendy the Welder and Rosie
the Riveter turned wrenches on the
home front as some women found
ways to serve in a uniformed capacity

Guest
perspective
in the Womens Auxiliary Corps
(WAAC), later the Womens Army
Corps (WAC); the Womens Airforce
Service Pilots (WASP) program; and
through Army and Navy nursing programs in the Pacic and European
fronts.
The Womens Armed Services
Integration Act of 1948 granted
women the rights to serve in the regular and reserve components of the
Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air
Force, and as recently at 1976 were
women admitted to the nations service academies. Today, there are
approximately 214,000 women serving in the military, approximating
14.6 percent of the active-duty service of nearly 1.4 million people.
This Veterans Day, take a moment
to recognize and thank not only the
brave men and women who have
served in our past and current conicts, but those who served at the
front lines of the home front during
World War II, welding ships for the
troops at sea.

Now is the time


to come together

cant think of anyone who was not just a little bit ...
surprised ... by the outcome of Tuesdays presidential election. Now it is a matter of trying to understand how it happened and what it means.
For some, it seems to be feeling like a death in the family or the loss of a job. Many, at least around here, are
going through the stages of grief. For others, it is a cause
for joy or at least hope. Around these parts, there has not
been much gloating from Trump supporters likely in
part because there arent that many of them and also it
might not go over so well.
There are protests in the
streets that seem bigger than
they are because they are on
TV but the nation is functioning and we are to continue as
we are because we are
Americans and that is what we
do.
Political balance tips back
and forth over time and while
the pendulum took a hard
right just now, there is balance in our system and it
works.
So I try to intellectualize
the result to determine how
much of the campaign rhetoric was actually intended to be
true, interpreted correctly by the media, actually possible
and politically feasible. Of all the topics of the campaign,
which will be the priority and how will it be accomplished? Who will be the secretary of state? Trump has
played the role of president-elect graciously so far and
that has done much to stem some unease. But will that
last?
And while it is easy to protest or wonder loudly about
the result of the election, the fact of the matter is that the
result is the result and this is the time when we should follow the lead of President Obama and Hillary Clinton in
supporting our new president and ensuring he is successful. As with any president, his (and someday her) success
means our success and that is for what we should wish.
I dont nd myself of the same opinion as U.S. Sen.
Bernie Sanders that often, but an email from his ofce
Wednesday included what I considered to be two salient
points that followed an acknowledgment that Trump
tapped into working class malaise.
To the degree that Mr. Trump is serious about pursuing
policies that improve the lives of working families in
this country, I and other progressives are prepared to work
with him. To the degree that he pursues racist, sexist,
xenophobic and anti-environment policies, we will vigorously oppose him.
Like many others, I didnt expect the national elections
outcome and am kicking myself for not seeing it coming
more clearly. People talk about the political bubble in
which we live in the Bay Area, but there is also an economic bubble as well. For us, we are dealing with the
impact of too much economic growth, whereas in other
areas of the nation, they are dealing with a dearth of it.
The election was won in the Rust Belt.
While many here now in the Bay Area have roots in the
Midwest, for others, the decline of that regions manufacturing industry is as mysterious as Paleozoic Era to a liberal arts major. But it is a real circumstance and, while we
struggle with the impacts on our day-to-day lives of the
booming tech industry, there is a creeping despondence in
other areas of the country we should try to understand. The
United States is a very big nation with a variety of needs
and interests and the coalition of our republic stands
because power shifts accordingly based on our collective
opinion.
So it is time to come together and stand for one another
and work within the connes of the new power dynamic.
Here in San Mateo County, particularly in San Mateo and
Burlingame, it also time to put the rancor of the election
aside. The discussion over rent control measures was a
joyless slog which sometimes matched the distasteful
enmity of the national election. The issue at hand, the rising cost of living and what to do about it, remains the
same. That has not changed with the defeat of measures Q
and R and I would argue that the work must continue to
address the issue in a compassionate way that works for
all.
We do that by working together, arm in arm, as
Americans and as residents of the great county of San
Mateo. Let us be an example to all of how a collaborative
spirit combined with innovative ideas and a can-do attitude rises above rancor. We do that through mutual respect
and collaboration. By listening with compassion and
with a mind toward understanding. This is what we should
do. This is who we are. So lets get to work.

more aggressively to hedge


against the possibility that interest rates, which have been ultralow for years, could rise steadily

Rule would boost solar and


wind energy on public lands
By Mary Clare Jalonick
and Matthew Daly
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The Obama administration took action Thursday to boost development of solar and wind energy on public
lands, part of President Barack Obamas
strategy to develop cleaner domestic energy
and reduce emissions blamed for global
warming.
A final rule announced by the Interior
Department would create a new leasing program on public lands and encourage development in areas where it would have fewer
effects on the environment.
The rule came a little more than two
months before President-elect Donald
Trump takes office, and a new Republican
administration could reconsider the rule or
even scrap it.
The Interior Department said the rule
would encourage renewable energy on the
nations vast swaths of public lands while
generating millions of dollars in revenue.
We are facilitating responsible renewable energy development in the right
places, creating jobs and cutting carbon
pollution for the benefit of all Americans,
said Interior Secretary Sally Jewell.

Obama has called on the Interior


Department to approve renewable energy
projects that generate 20,000 megawatts of
power on public land by 2020 enough to
power about 7 million homes. The department said the rules competitive leasing
provisions will apply to 700,000 acres of
public lands in Arizona, California,
Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah.
Environmental groups hailed the rule,
calling it common-sense reform to protect
natural resources while encouraging development of renewable energy.
Industry groups have said the current permitting system works and a new rule could
increase uncertainty and costs in highly
competitive electricity markets.
By prioritizing development in designated low-conflict areas where there is general agreement about development, the rule
should make the permitting process more
efficient while protecting wildlands and
wildlife habitat from development, said
Alex Daue of the Wilderness Society, an
environmental group.
With at least one-fifth of all greenhouse
gas emissions in this country coming from
public lands, we know that they must play a
role in addressing climate change, Daue
said.

Disney embraces streaming as ratings sag


By Mae Anderson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK As more and more people


get their favorite TV shows and movies
online, Disney is also learning to embrace
the stream.
The Walt Disney Co. once resisted offering channels like ESPN directly over the
internet, preferring old-fashioned cable subscriptions. Its investors are fretting over
ratings as more people cut the cord and cancel cable or satellite service. NFL game
viewership is also down, and the contentious election drew viewers away from
Disney networks like ABC to cable news
networks.
Disney stock was down 9.6 percent for the
year, at Thursdays closing. But despite a
weaker-than-expected earnings report,
which showed a drop in ESPN revenue,
shares rose more than 2 percent late

Thursday after an initial dip in extended trading.


The media conglomerate, which owns
Marvel, Star Wars and its own Pixar and
Disney Studios, is forging ahead with new
streaming deals involving Netflix, Hulu and
others.
Disney is the one media company that
can succeed in taking its brands directly to
consumers, said Nomura analyst Anthony
DiClemente. He expects Disney could one
day offer ESPN as a stand-alone service, for
example, similar to HBOs $15-a-month
HBO Now.
Burbank, California-based Disney hasnt
gone that far yet. But last quarter it took a $1
billion stake in BAMTech, which provides
streaming for Major League Baseball. The
company said it plans to use that technology to offer an ESPN streaming service that
offers live game streaming and programming not offered on regular ESPN.

Playoffs evoke emotions


By Nathan Mollat
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Nine football teams from San Mateo County


qualified for the Central Coast Section, but
there has to be a mix of emotions coming from
the squads as they prepare for first round games
Friday and Saturday.
Menlo-Atherton has to be feeling some pressure being the No. 1 seed in the Open Division
I bracket, while two-win Sacred Heart Prep
(Division V) is playing with house money.
Aragon (Open Division II), Menlo School
(Division IV) and Kings Academy (Division
IV), must all have a sense of deja vu, as each
will play a team they faced during the regular

season with Menlo and Kings Academy,


Ocean Division rivals, facing off in the first
round. The Dons get an Aptos team that beat
them 49-21 in Week 5.
Serra (Open Division II) might be the most
confident of all the county teams. The Padres
have won six straight games in the West
Catholic Athletic League. That would give any
team confidence.
Burlingame (Open Division III) and San
Mateo (Division IV) must surely be feeling
some trepidation. The Panthers drew nothing
but bad luck in the first round, getting WCAL
and CCS heavyweight Valley Christian in the
opener. The Bearcats had to have their confidence shaken following last weeks surprisingly one-sided loss to Burlingame. The silver

lining for San Mateo is at least it doesnt get a


WCAL team in the first round. Instead, the
Bearcats get the brackets top seed in 9-1
Westmont.
How will they all fare this weekend? Lets
look at the matchup:

Curry leads Warriors to rout of Denver


By Pat Graham

Warriors 125, Nuggets 101

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DENVER Stephen Curry scored 33 points


Thursday and the Golden State Warriors beat
the Denver Nuggets 125-101 on a night Kevin
Durants string of 72 straight regular-season
games with at least 20 points ended.
Durant finished with 18 points. He remained
tied with Michael Jordan for the fourthlongest streak of 20 or more points in league
history.
Curry tweaked his ankle in a win over Dallas
on Wednesday, but it didnt appear to hamper
him. He finished 7 of 13 from 3-point range,
including one that he turned into a four-point
play.
Rookie Jamal Murray had 14 points for the
Nuggets, who are 0-2 at Pepsi Center this season after stressing the importance of regaining a home-court advantage. Fellow rookie
Malik Beasley scored his first NBA points on
a 3-pointer in the third quarter. He finished

with 12 points.
Golden State went on a
17-2 run in the first quarter
and never looked back.
The Warriors led by as
many as 31 points in the
third. Durant stayed in the
game, trying to get to the
magic number of 20, until
Steph Curry 5:53 remaining. He was
subbed out after being
called for an offensive foul.
Durants streak began on Nov. 23, 2015,
while with Oklahoma City.

Tip-ins
Warriors: Rookie Damian Jones (right pectoral surgery) is scheduled to join Santa Cruz
of the NBA Development League on Nov. 20.
The center out of Vanderbilt was taken by the

Warriors with the 30th overall pick. We do


like his potential and his future, coach Steve
Kerr said. ... C Zaza Pachulia played in his
900th career game.
Nuggets: Wilson Chandler (left hamstring),
Darrell Arthur (left knee) and Will Barton (left
ankle) didnt play.

Protest
Denver filed a protest with the NBA over a
disputed call in the final second of a 108-107
loss in Memphis on Tuesday. The ball
appeared to go off a Grizzlies player with 0.7
seconds remaining, but the ruling on the floor
and video review awarded possession to
Memphis. Marc Gasol hit the game-winning
shot on a tip-in.
Best-case scenario would be to replay the
last seven-tenths, coach Michael Malone
said.
The odds of that happening, though, are
slim and none, Malone said.

Sensitive topic
Kerr is careful not to rest his starters on the
road unless absolutely necessary. He held out
most of his top players during a March 2015
game in the Mile High City and received quite a
few angry emails from fans.
I sympathize with those people, Kerr said.
Its tricky. Ive got to do whats best for the
team.

Athlete sightings
There were quite a few Denver Broncos in
attendance, including pass rushers Von Miller
and DeMarcus Ware, along with receiver
Demaryius Thomas and cornerback Chris Harris
Jr. The Colorado Avalanche were represented by
forward Nathan MacKinnon and defenseman
Tyson Barrie.

Election angers, disappoints many in sports world


By Tim Reynolds
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LeBron James made his third championship-celebrating trip to the White House
on Thursday, welcomed as he was for the
first two such trips by President Barack
Obama.
If James returns in the next four years, it
may seem very awkward.
James is no fan of President-elect Donald
Trump, and after a most divisive presidential campaign ended this week athletes and coaches are dealing with the same
emotions as those in everyday walks of life.
And many in the sports world havent been
shy about expressing their disappointment
over Trumps election.
I cant say Ive ever been ashamed of our
country, Detroit Pistons coach Stan Van
Gundy said. Until today.
James openly backed Hillary Clinton for
president, and it just so happened that he
and the Cleveland Cavaliers were at the
White House part of the standard reward
for winning a championship on the same
day Trump was. Obama met with Trump in
the Oval Office to talk presidential transition as the Cavaliers were getting a tour,
then Obama greeted the NBA champions on
the South Lawn about two hours later.
There was no mention of Trump during the

Cavaliers ceremony.
There have been many,
many mentions of president-elect in many other
realms of the sports
world.
All of a sudden, youre
faced with the reality
that the man whos
LeBron James going to lead you has
routinely used racist,
misogynist, insulting words, Golden State
Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. Thats a
tough one. Thats a tough one. I wish him
well. I hope hes a good president. I have no
idea what kind of president hell be because
he hasnt said anything about what hes
going to do. We dont know.
Its rare that one topic can be the primary
discussion point in locker rooms across different sports at the same time.
This is one of those times.
New England Patriots coach Bill
Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady were
peppered with questions Wednesday about
their preferences, after Trump indicated he
had their support. But in college football,
Alabama coach Nick Saban said somewhat unbelievably he wasnt even aware
of Election Day.
It was so important to me that I didnt
even know it was happening, Saban said.

Jake Arrieta tweeted that

what
appeared to be a reference
to some actors and enterDonald Trump tainers saying they
would move to Canada if
Trump won. Trump also had support from
others in sports; Buffalo Bills offensive
lineman Richie Incognito used Trumps signature Make America Great Again phrase
as a hashtag.
Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers
has golfed with Trump, though didnt support his candidacy. Rivers said if people
truly want change in the future, more should
vote.
Right now, we have a president in office
who is terrific, Rivers said. And we have
one coming in that has done nothing yet,
and youve got to give him a shot. Hes
going to be president. Thats a guarantee.
Trump and sports are often intertwined,
including earlier this year when the PGA
Tour announced that his Doral course near
Miami would not host an event for the first
time in more than 50 years. Part of the issue
at Doral, though not the entire problem,

was that Trump made plenty of caustic comments during his campaign and that made
finding sponsorship for a PGA Tour event
on one of his courses difficult.
The Doral tournament, somewhat ironically, is headed to Mexico the country
that Trump wants divided from the U.S. by a
wall to combat illegal immigration. On
Thursday, Mexican Formula One driver
Sergio Perez ended his relationship with
one of his sponsors after that company,
Hawkers, made a joke that Perez thought
was in poor taste about the planned wall.
I would never let anyone make fun of my
country, Perez said.
But the frustrations are certainly not limited to minorities in sports right now. Kerr
and Van Gundy, two of the leagues most outspoken coaches about many issues, are
white.
Van Gundy said he couldnt figure out what
was bothering his team Wednesday, before
Pistons forward Aron Baynes an
Australian spoke up and suggested that
the team vent about the election.
And after that talk, Van Gundy let his
anger out. He said he lives in Oakland
County, Michigan, an area that voted primarily for Clinton.
At least I can look around, Van Gundy
said, and say we werent the ones putting
that guy in office.

Burlingames Crouch heart and soul of fiery S.I. volleyball team


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

All St. Ignatius-SF had to do to make it


back to the Central Coast Section girls volleyball championship round was wait for
the inception of the more competitive Open
Division bracket.
The addition of first-year head coach Dave
Huan and the fiery play of senior team captain Anne Crouch have obviously fueled the
Wildcats run as well.
Crouch a Burlingame native is in her
fourth season of varsity volleyball at St.
Ignatius. In three previous years, while the
Wildcats have flexed between the CCS
Division II and Division III brackets, they
never advanced past the semifinal round.
With Tuesdays sweep of banged-up Notre
Dame-Belmont in the CCS Open Division
semifinals, however, St. Ignatius advances
to its first CCS title game since 2011.
Its pretty surprising that the last three
years we havent got this far, Crouch said.
I think the fun thing about Open is its supposed to be a ton better. But the two teams
weve seen weve taken in three sets.
The Wildcats last won a CCS crown in
2010. To do so this year in the inaugural
season of the Open Division will be a tall
order as they face West Catholic Athletic
League rival Mitty, the No. 1 ranked team in
the nation, Friday at Independence High
School in San Jose at 5:30 p.m. Mitty captured the WCAL title this year, running the
table with a 5-0 league record. St. Ignatius
finished in second place with its only
league loss coming at the hands of the
Monarchs in an Oct. 12 sweep.

Weve been working on a few things in


practice just to try and change things a little
bit, Huan said. We just have to play sharper. In the past weve been off and weve
been able to manage victories. But against a
team like Mitty if everybody on the court
does the job were supposed to, we can beat
them. Theyre beatable. But is it going to be
easy, absolutely not?
Huan has strong San Mateo County ties as
well as he and his wife Flynn co-founded the
Red Rock Volleyball Club in Redwood City.
Prior to transitioning to the Red Rock
name, the club was known as Payes Place,
where Huan first crossed paths with Crouch.
Huan was the coach of the 13-14-year-old
team when Crouch played for the 12-13s
squad. Still, the lifelong volleyball player
Crouch made a lasting impression.
My recollection is shes about the same
as she is now shes kind of a fiery, feisty
kid, Huan said.
Fiery and feisty still, Crouch carries herself with the kind of swagger of someone
doing what she knows she was born to do.
In this sense, her personality isnt necessarily big and boisterous. The way she
plays the game sure is though, as evidenced
by a massive block she scored in the CCS
semifinals against the CCS leading scorer,
Notre Dame-Belmont 6-foot outside hitter
Katie Smoot.
What makes Crouchs athleticism so special is she stands only 5-9, considered
slight of stature for an elite outside hitter. In
fact, she was recruited as a defensive specialist by UCLA, where she is slated to play
next year on a full athletic scholarship.
So, her ability to block a crusher like
Smoot seemed otherworldly. Yet Crouchs

the nation.
reaction wasnt to yell roof, or pump a
fist, or any of the other standard celebrations generally seen after a critical block.
The senior merely tiptoed back to the midcourt huddle, like a cool Wildcat on the
prowl.
Thats just who I am, Crouch said.
When I was 13, people called me the animal. I guess I was just born with it. My mom
and dad dont know where I get it from. I
dont know what it is. I guess when things
go my way, I just try to stay cool.
The reason Crouch is an effective outside
though is because she has always played
bigger than her size. With a vertical leap of
9-foot, 8-inches, when she gets airborne it
is a high-flying spectacle.
She does play bigger than her size,

Huan said. Shes got a great vertical and


great athleticism; she gets way up there.
This creates a major advantage for
Crouch, as opponents tend not to see it
coming when she exhibits constant dynamic play over the net.
I obviously think its an advantage to me
for people to underestimate me and then be
able to take them by surprise, Crouch said.
Within the Wildcats ranks, her personality is just as big. Huan said St. Ignatius often
enjoys a relaxed atmosphere at practice.
When the team needs to get serious though,
Crouch not the coaching staff tends to
be the one to turn up the intensity.
I wouldnt say this team takes her lead,
this team more follows her lead, Huan said.
They perk up when she speaks and they
understand they have to step up when she
demands it.
Now, Crouch is looking to make the
impossible possible with Fridays David
vs. Goliath matchup against Mitty. The
Wildcats have actually played the Monarchs
twice this season. Mitty also prevailed two
weeks ago in the WCAL tournament championship game. St. Ignatius has yet to take
a set from the Monarchs this season.
I think this is a third-times-a-charm
thing, Crouch said. The first round was
just a wipeout nothing good. The second
time we were much closer. And this time,
hopefully well get even closer and get a few
sets. Hopefully the whole thing.
Crouch is one of four San Mateo County
residents on the St. Ignatius roster, along
with 6-2 sophomore Lizzie Fleming (San
Carlos); 5-9 junior Delaney Peranich (Half
Moon Bay); and 5-10 junior Sarah Nunes
(Belmont).

In the United States, organizers face a challenge: How to popularize a sedentary sport

most fans favor super-dynamic sports like

Still, chess has its fervent American fans,

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Big league general


managers walked under seven palm trees and
across the sun-splashed red stone courtyard
of the Sonoran Desert resort where they had
spent four days. Pulling their wheelie bags as
guitar music played on speakers, they passed
a sign that explained Montelucia, part of the
hotels name, was Spanish for mountain of
light.
While no trades were completed at the first
meeting of the offseason, many found the
session illuminating: a constellation of
stars are in play.
Detroit will listen to offers for pitcher
Justin Verlander, first baseman Miguel
Cabrera, second baseman Ian Kinsler, right
fielder J.D. Martinez and designated hitter
Victor Martinez.
The Chicago White Sox would deal ace
pitcher Chris Sale for the right price.

UFC

featherweight champion, and UFC seem
poised to smash the arenas gate record set
in a 1999 boxing match between Lennox
Lewis and Evander Holyeld. The bout drew
$13.5 million and more than 21,000 fans
stuffed the Garden.
I rarely look around and take it in because
were going 100 mph, White said, but you
better believe I will on Saturday.
UFC offered a sneak preview of the insanity ahead when McGregor, Alvarez, UFC
welterweight champ Tyron Woodley, UFC
womens strawweight champ Joanna
Jedrzejczyk and other ghters joined White
on the stage.
New York fans lined up outside MSG more
than three hours before they were allowed
inside for the public press conference. Fox

Pittsburgh outfielder Andrew McCutchen


and New York Yankees catcher Brian McCann
are available.
All All-Stars.
I know that magnitude. Of course I do.
Thats why we chose to be transparent, said
Al Avila, GM of the payroll-paring Tigers.
We chose to tell the players the possibility
of things happening.
When to make a swap is one of the key factors.
In other deals that weve done, weve
ended up getting as much if not more around
the trade deadline than we would have in the
prior offseason, because at the trade deadline
theres fewer players available, Pirates GM
Neal Huntington said as he left Thursday.
Theres more angst about competing.
Many of the sports biggest agents also
attended the session, eager to provide clubs
with the latest statistics designed to present
their clients in the best light. Scott Boras

came up with a new acronym to describe former All-Star closer Greg Holland, rehabbing
from Tommy John surgery in October 2015.
Everybody wants the help pitcher, the
High Level Performance Pitcher, he said.
Weve got our HLPP algorithm, and these
guys create value.
For some teams, leaving the comfort of
their offices is a chore.
Its a necessary evil, Yankees GM Brian
Cashman said. You fly out here, meet with
everybody as much as you possibly can, go
through your administrative meetings with
MLB and fly home.
There was a little news on the final day.
R.A. Dickey, a 42-year-old knuckleballer,
became the first of the 158 free agents to
change teams, agreeing to a one-year contract with the Atlanta Braves that guarantees
$8 million. St. Louis outfielder Matt
Holliday became the final free agent when he
and the Cardinals agreed to waive the provi-

sion in his contract that called for his $17


million option for 2017 to become guaranteed if he finished in the top 10 in MVP voting.
Higher-profile players in a relatively weak
free-agent class are likely to take their time
before striking deals, a group that includes
closers Aroldis Chapman, Kenley Jansen and
Mark Melancon; outfielders Jose Bautista,
Yoenis Cespedes, Dexter Fowler and Mark
Trumbo; and designated hitter Edwin
Encarnacion.
Hoping to retain Cespedes, Mets GM
Sandy Alderson would like a resolution by
the end of the winter meetings, scheduled for
Dec. 5-8 in National Harbor, Maryland.
White Sox GM Rick Hahn said he revisited
trade discussions that began ahead of the
Aug. 1 deadline for non-waiver deals and it
was now time for regrouping, prioritizing
things and then following up in the coming
weeks leading up to the winter meetings.

Sports 1 taped an episode of a sports debate


show outside the arena to keep fans occupied. The bars and restaurants in the immediate area around MSG plastered with ads to
come watch, drink and party on Saturday
night were as ubiquitous as the Duane
Reades on every corner.
This place is going to be a zoo on
Saturday, one lunchtime fan at Walters
told a bartender.
The Guinness might be owing all night
in McGregors honor.
The Notorious Irishman remained backstage once White kicked off the press conference. Alvarez, making his rst title
defense since he smoked Rafael Dos Anjos
for the belt in July, grew impatient waiting.
Fighting out of Philly, Alvarez taunted the
New York crowd that about booed him off
the stage. Alvarez barked, Wheres my
opponent? Wheres he at?
When he comes, you give me a call,
Alvarez said.

He dropped the mic and walked off the


stage.
McGregor who sank a basket on the
MSG court a day earlier skipped out in
delight in an outt straight out of central
casting of the old HBO show Hookers at
the Point. The predominantly young,
white and male crowd freaked out for the
biggest late entrance at the arena since
Willis Reed limped through the tunnel in
the 1970 NBA nals.
I operate on my own time, and Im running early on my time, McGregor said.
The faceoff melded the title-ght gravitas
of the 1971 Joe Frazier-Muhammad Ali bout
at the Garden with the steel-chair silliness
of Hulk Hogan and Mr. T vs. Roddy Piper
and Paul Orndorff in the rst WrestleMania.
This is not like any other ght, White
said. This is a massive enormous show.
The promotion wasted no time in
announcing it would return for UFC 209 on
Feb. 11 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. No
ghts were announced.

UFC morphed into a global phenomenon,


become a staple on network television and
ran PPV cards that hit 1 million buys during
the ban. New York had been the lone state
running against the trend of holding regulated MMA cards and made New Jersey its
marquee ght home on the East.
State lawmakers and Democratic Gov.
Andrew Cuomo agreed in April to end the
two-decade old ban following years of failed
efforts by MMA supporters. The law authorizing the sport took effect in September.
Cuomo concluded the move would boost the
economy by luring bouts to the nations
largest city as well as upstate venues, with
one estimate that MMA could generate $137
million in annual economic activity.
The revenue ow zealously starts on
Saturday night.
The chairs will be lled with fans and not
in the hands of a championship challenger.
UFC wants to prove to New York it was
worth the wait.

Karjakin was 12 when he became
the youngest grandmaster ever, and
Carlsen was a grandmaster at 13.
When I was young, I was used to
winning games in a very aggressive
style, and I would attack all the time
and I was used to my opponents
cracking, says Carlsen. But when I
got to the highest level, then people
defended better, so now Im more
pragmatic; whatever risks I take, I
try to control the game.
Carlsen has cashed in through
sponsorships, his own chess app
and modeling for ads. He appeared in
G-Star Raws Spring/Summer fashion ad campaign along with actress
and model Lily Cole.
He also was selected by
Cosmopolitan magazine as one of
the sexiest men of 2013. Since
then, hes also been the worlds No.
1 player.
All 600 seats for Fridays inaugural game were sold out, starting at
$75 apiece. Two games are played on
consecutive days, followed by a oneday break, for a total of 12 games.
Tens of millions of fans are
expected to follow live online, free
of
charge
through
the
worldchess.com website and affiliate partners. In addition, $15 via
Pay-Per-View buys the game in virtual reality, allowing fans to experience the game as if they were there
by wearing special goggles.
This week, New York City will
host the first championship with
two grandmasters of the smartphone
generation a battle of two of the
finest minds on the planet, says
Merenzon. Our goal is to make
chess a pop culture event.

attention from residents.
Officials were slated to possibly vote on
whether to approve changes, but instead
opted to continue the meeting until Nov. 22
after hearing from more than a dozen residents, the majority who were opposed.
They didnt take official action but councilmembers expressed a willingness to
change the rules although some differed on
to what extent and how.
My thoughts go to, if were going to do
something new and there are folks on both
sides of an issue, is there a way we can do it so
in some sense both views or both parties on
opposite sides benefit from the whole
thing? said Councilman Warren Lieberman,
according to a live video of the meeting.
Numerous opponents, whove at times
expressed concerns about losing the quality
of their neighborhoods with oversized
McMansions, also spoke during the meeting
as well as organizers who gathered enough
referendum signatures that led the council to
overturn prior changes last year.
There have also been resident proponents
of the changes whove sought the citys help
in achieving what they see are reasonable
expansions to accommodate growing families.

Named after the military bugle call to report
to duty, Reveille aims to dutifully serve the
veteran population with their needs as they
have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country, said Barbara Breen with Peninsula
Covenant Church. Reveille sponsors family

things.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

This week, the council began considering


new recommendations from the Planning
Commission that included a sliding scale
whereby home size correlates to lot size.
Currently, homes can be up to 3,500 square
feet or 4,500 square feet, depending on location.
Instead, the city is considering allowing up
to 3,500-square-foot homes on properties of
10,000 square feet or less. Then, allowable
home size would increase as the size of a
property increases with a 20,000-square-foot
lot able to have a 5,000-square-foot home,
the maximum allowed. Factors such as the
slope of the lot and the citys existing floorarea ratio table would remain and put further
constraints on how big an owner can go,
according to staff.
The council is also contemplating further
design criteria such as requiring larger setbacks for bigger homes, potentially easing
the exemption process and not counting
garages toward the maximum home size.
Councilman Doug Kim said hes moderate
on the issue and believes larger homes on
appropriately sized lots could be appropriate
so long as they dont impede upon neighbors. He said his preference is to address the
root cause of homeowners struggles with the
current code, which is there being little assurance in the exemption or planning process.
Im in favor of keeping the caps where
they are and addressing one of my biggest
beefs which is a very loosey-goosey

[exemption] process, Kim said. Im in


favor of a reasonable middle ground, which is
let homeowners go bigger, but lets go
through a reasonable exemption process.
The city has stated its goals are to assist
those looking to expand to accommodate
growing families while creating a less arbitrary planning process for single-family
home remodels and new construction.
In total, the amendments to the Zoning and
Tree ordinances cover design guidelines, secondary or in-law units, alleviating parking
requirements, home size and the rules regarding removing or planting trees.
Opponents have questioned who would
actually benefit from the proposed changes,
particularly in regard to allowing property
owners to build bigger.
As I see it, the main beneficiaries are really developers and speculators, said resident
Birgit Merian. Cities up and down the state
are dealing with the mansion-ization of
neighborhoods and the backlash from residents. What is progressive is discouraging
conspicuous consumption and encouraging
sustainability.
Many opponents expressed concerns about
protecting neighbors views and privacy,
arguing the exemption process allows them
more input. Some also questioned whether it
would be wiser to encourage denser or smaller
living, with one even suggesting the city
reduce its current allowable home sizes.
Its a Cadillac with bigger fins at a time

when we need smart cars, said Kristin


Mercer, an advocate with Ask Belmont
Citizens, which initiated the referendum.
Others contend encouraging people to
update their properties will result in greener
and safer homes as new construction must
abide by modern building codes.
Promoting investment in peoples homes
and in turn the community, is what should be
our ultimate goal, said Councilwoman
Davina Hurt.
She also expressed an interest in allowing
larger homes on larger lots as capping
everyone at the same rate really doesnt allow
the property owner to realize their full right
and investment in a larger lot.
Vice Mayor Charles Stone, who served on
the council subcommittee with Mayor Eric
Reed to initiate the changes, said addressing
the citys burdensome single-family home
remodel rules was a top priority for many residents he met while campaigning for his
position. Concerned about the rhetoric,
Stone argued the city has whittled down its
initial proposal which was to have no cap, to
a more moderate 5,000 maximum cap on a
limited number of lots.
I think we want to compromise, but compromise isnt do it my way or were going go
to the streets and referendum, Stone said,
later adding we need to have regulations that
are narrowly tailored to meet a stated goal.
The council will meet Nov. 22 to consider a
formal vote on the amendments.

Grandsaert, a former U.S. Army Reserve officer in the Judge Advocate General Corps, was
honored Thursday for the compassion he
shows on the bench through his Veteran
Treatment Program, which addresses the special needs of veterans facing prosecution and
couples mentors with veterans with needs.
Grandsaerts son Patrick accepted the award
on his fathers behalf.
Tim Healy, an East Palo Alto resident, was
also named Veteran of the Year for his outreach efforts to veterans. Healy said his life
spiraled out of control after his service. He
was an addict with a criminal history before a
fellow veteran helped him discover hope.
I bumped my head against the wall countless times, Healy said. I remember not having hope until someone from the VA came and
visited me in the Fresno County Jail. His
visit opened my eyes, he said.
Nowadays, Healy can be found in any pocket of California with a goal of connecting
homeless veterans with services.
I feel like if I can reach just one person and
help them, I have done my job, Healy said,
adding he hopes he can help more.
He travels from homeless encampment to
soup kitchens and detox facilities with the
hope of connecting veterans with treatment
and services, he said.
Sister Denise Healy, who attended the
luncheon, said the way her brother Tim turned
his life around has been an inspiration.

When you watch someone painfully go


down a path and then straighten up and end up
here we are all so very proud of how
focused and hard he works, she said. He has
earned this honor.
Local journalist Carolyn Livengood was
awarded Patriot of the Year for her continued
coverage on behalf of veterans. Livengood
has dedicated much of her time to the Wreaths
Across America program and volunteered her
time for the past 25 years with the U.S. Coast
Guard Auxiliary, Flotilla 15 at Oyster Point,
where she retired as a commander in 2006.
The well-attended event will be an annual
one, said Effie Milionis Verducci with the San
Mateo County Human Services Agency.

county a sense of for what to plan, Verducci


said.
Born from that assessment was a Veterans
Summit that brought together 107 veterans,
lawmakers and social service workers who
learned more about how to truly help veterans.
Veterans have a lot of pride and respect for
other service members, said Verducci.
Many times veterans dont access benefits
because they want to leave them for the next
person who might need them.
Following that summit, the San Mateo
County Veterans Commission was formed, a
commission to advise the county Board of
Supervisors on matters that affect the countys veterans.
Goals of the commission include education
about benefits and services available to veterans as well as identifying and addressing
issues that affect them. The commission also
helps develop policies to increase access to
affordable housing and benefits they might
not be aware of such as college tuition writeoffs.

Expanding veteran services


Veteran services in the county have come a
long way since 2014. While the Veterans
Services Office was established in 1946, it
was revamped two years ago when the county
conducted a needs assessment to determine
what veterans in San Mateo County really
needed. Funded by Measure A tax revenue, the
assessment provided insight that included the
number of veterans living in the county and
its demographic.
For instance, the majority of veterans living in the county were between the ages of 55
and 65 years old. The second highest age
range was 18 to 24 years old, which gave the

Today, the Veterans Commission and the


Veterans Service Office offer a number of
services that are relevant to county veterans.

Arrival is sluggish, and


thats not just the aliens
By Mark Kennedy
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

It turns out that when space aliens do eventually arrive on Earth and, wouldnt you know it, they traveled all that way without bothering to learn any of our languages beforehand? we wont need any fancy
high-tech gizmos with LED screens to communicate. All well need is a simple whiteboard and a black
marker to break the intergalactic ice and say hi.
Thats among some of the hard-to-swallow premises of Arrival, a sluggish, naturalistic meditation on
loss and time that also happens to have lumbering spidery, squid-like aliens who arrive in a spacecraft that
resemble massive watermelon seeds.
The film tries to straddle the line between serious sci-fi that examines Big Ideas (like Solaris) and the
kind of popcorn-munching, go-get-those-slimy-critters summer blockbusters (hello, Independence Day).
It doesnt always succeed and ends on such a muddled philosophical note that you may need the whiteboard
back for a quick explanation to be mapped out.
Amy Adams stars as linguist Dr. Louise Banks the top of everyones list when it comes to translations
who is enlisted by the military to help communicate with one of 12 alien ships that suddenly appear on
Earth, silent and eerie. (Wait, theyre shy?)

Peninsula Symphony
launches new season
By David Bratman
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

Guy Fieri broke into the mainstream after winning The Next
Food Network Star. He went on to put his name on more than
30 restaurants across America and Mexico.

Fieri a vegetable fan? Sure,


the Food Network star says
By Mark Kennedy
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Of all the celebrity chefs out there, theres


one youd least expect to sing the praises of spinach, kale
and Brussels sprouts. That would be Guy Fieri.
The spiky-haired champion of American comfort food is
more associated with greasy chili dogs than salad, the fryer
over the fig. But are you sure you know all the sides of this
guy?
Im a big greens fan. Im a big vegetable fan. Im a big
whole grains fan. And I exercise a lot. Thats how I keep this
petit dancers figure, he said, laughing. A lot of people
misinterpret what I do.
Fieri has built a food career on a certain amount of flash
a rock star image complete with tattoos and jewelry, a fleet
of yellow muscle cars and high-octane dishes including
Bacon Mac n Cheese Burgers.
But hes also raised a family in the same Northern
California house for the last 20 years, eats a burger maybe
once a month, considers culinary innovator Jose Andres a
hero, and says things like I cannot get enough farro.
Both sides are on display in his new cookbook, Guy Fieri
Family Food (William Morrow), with recipes that range
from Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza to Quick Cracked Bulgur
Wheat Salad. Its what his family eats, with tips on how to
stretch leftovers into several meals.
It kind of moves all over the board, said Fieri, who started with 200 recipes and whittled them down to 125. It was
a full-blown family project with everyone involved and
picking what they liked and didnt like.
Fieri broke into the mainstream after winning The Next
Food Network Star. He went on to put his name on more
than 30 restaurants across America and Mexico. His bestknown Food Network show is Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives
, where he celebrates small eateries that make dishes from
scratch.
I pick the restaurants and I pick the menu and I try to pick
what they do best and I try to pick what is creative and exciting for people to see. But the last thing I really want to do is
the 10-pound chili cheese fry overload, he said.
The show has created whats called the Fieri Effect, a boost
in restaurant revenues after he shows up. I feel like the guy
that gets to bring the Publishers Clearing House check to
the door, you know? he says. It changes their lives. Its
not just giving them money. Its giving them recognition.
But as much as Fieri is cheered by fans for his down-home
approach to unfussy fare, hes also dismissed by foody elites
who find his manner brash and culinary skills lacking. The
New York Times in 2012 had a scathing takedown of his
Times Square restaurant, asking: Is the entire restaurant a
very expensive piece of conceptual art?

The Peninsula Symphony began its


season last weekend with a concert featuring two famous masterworks written
for love and friendship. I heard
Saturdays performance at Flint Center
in Cupertino.
The two works were Robert
Schumanns Concerto in A Minor, written as a present for his pianist wife,
Clara, and Edward Elgars Enigma
Variations. The individual variations
are portraits of Elgar himself, his wife
and a dozen of their friends, formed of
musical depictions of their conversation, their music-making or, in one
case, the friends dog falling into a
stream.
Music director Mitchell Sardou Klein
led the variations as if they were a suite
of separate movements, connecting
them only in a few places, such as in the
harmonic drop at the end of the W.N.
movement that makes the succeeding
Nimrod so poignant. This individualistic interpretation was enhanced by a
screen at the side of the stage, on which
was projected, sequentially, photos of
the subjects with thumbnail write-ups
of their characters.
A good performance of the Enigma
was within this non-professional
orchestras competence. Each portrait

was strikingly distinct, which is what


Elgar wanted. The most challenging
parts, but also the most successful, were
the dolce viola and cello melodies in
Ysobel and B.G.N. The finale, in
which Elgar depicts himself, made a
good dramatic close.
The orchestra was equally fine, light
and perky, in the Schumann Piano
Concerto. The soloist was a slightlybuilt young man named Conrad Tao, 22,
deeply focused on his music. Especially
in the Intermezzo movement, he played
quietly, almost hesitantly, exchanging
phrases with the orchestra like a pair of
chamber music players. It made for an
intimate portrait of Robert and Claras
bond and their mutual respect.
Tao demonstrated another mode of
playing with his dazzling encore,
Catnaires by the uncompromising
modernist Elliott Carter. It was determinedly extroverted: loud, fast and brittle. Tao found a rough but definite flow
in the jagged rhythms of this unlikely
bonbon.
Two shorter works filled out the program. The concerts symphonic surprise was Elgars brief Civic Fanfare
for Hereford, England, one of his few
late-period works, which concludes
with a cheerful arrangement of God
Save the King. The evening began
with the orchestras new assistant conductor, Chad Goodman, leading Early

Light by Carolyn Bremer. This is the


first entry in the orchestras commitment to play a work by a living
American female composer at each concert this season.
Bremer, who directs the conservatory
school at Long Beach State, is bestknown for this one short work. It was
inspired by hearing The Star-Spangled
Banner played before a baseball game
thus the title, which is of course a
quote from the anthems lyrics but
any melodic inspiration is thoroughly
transmogrified. Its a brightly lit piece,
full of bouncy triplets, featuring plenty
of winds and brass, in the spirit of
upbeat American nationalism by Aaron
Copland or Henry Cowell. Bremers
music sounds eager for the baseball
game to start, so too bad the World
Series had just ended. Wait till next
year.
The Peninsula Symphonys next program, to be held Jan. 20-21 in the less
usual venues of the Fox Theatre in
Redwood City and the Heritage Theatre
in Campbell, will be a jazz-oriented
program featuring local favorites the
St. Michael Trio as soloists. The concerts female composer will be the wellknown and popular Gwyneth Walker.
The evening will also feature works by
Claude Bolling and Astor Piazzolla,
plus popular music ranging from W.C.
Handy to Stevie Wonder.

The evolution of Amy Adams ARRIVAL


on view in Arrival, Nocturnal
Continued from page 19

By Jake Coyle
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TORONTO For a time, Amy Adams,


a former chorus girl from Colorado, was
known for her princesses and country
girls: sweet and sunny characters that
helped make Adams a star.
I call them the innocents like
Picasso, my innocent period, Adams
says, chuckling. But the naivety or
anything that I brought to a role, I didnt feel trapped by it. I thought each of
them saw the world in a different way. I
was perplexed that people saw me in
that way but I understood it. I didnt
know when or how that would change,
but I knew it needed to in order for me to
evolve as an actress.
That evolution has been going on for
some time, from the forceful restraint of
her performances in Doubt and The
Master to more unbridled outings in a
pair of David O. Russell films, The
Fighter and American Hustle. At 42,
she is already a five-time Oscar nominee. But this fall, in a pair of intelligent, layered performances, Adams
expanding range and growing complexity has never been more on view.
In Denis Villeneuves Arrival, she
stars as a linguist tasked by the government with communicating with newly
landed aliens whose sleek, orb-like
ships are mysteriously hovering just off
the ground. The movie, which opens
Friday, is thick with a Close
Encounters of the Third Kind atmosphere and resonant through Adams

performance with deeper emotions


than your average sci-fi film.
Adams also stars in Tom Fords
Nocturnal Animals (out Nov. 18), as a
Manhattan gallerist trapped in an
unhappy marriage. When a novel written by her first husband (Jake
Gyllenhaal) arrives, shes teleported
into a fictional world. The books story,
a bloody thriller, is heavy with personal subtext. Both of these characters
come to a crossroads and I feel like Im
at a bit of a crossroads, Adams reflected
in an interview in September at the
Toronto International Film Festival,
where both films played.
Its being a mom and entering my
40s and looking at things in a different
way, a way that has been really awesome, Adams said of her shift. I feel
really happy about the changes that
have happened internally. I feel like
these films helped that happen.
But those changes, she says, are
mostly about finding a balance between
her career and her family life. She and
husband Darren Le Gallo have a sixyear-old daughter. Though spelling out
the connection would give too much
away, motherhood was an especially
powerful influence on Arrival. Adams
agreed to do the film within 24 hours of
being sent the script.
Every time I start talking about my
daughter in relationship to Arrival, it
goes straight to tears, says Adams.
My husband saw the film before I did
and he couldnt talk to me for a while.
Adams range as an actress is a sneaky

kind. There are no tales of tortured transformations. She simply keeps showing
up in role after role, fully inhabiting a
character with warmth and smarts while,
to varying degrees, remaining herself.
Working with her acting coach,
Warner Loughlin, Adams builds the
essence of a character in advance of
shooting so that she can be free and
reactive on set. That was especially necessary in both Arrival and Nocturnal
Animals because both films call on her
to express much without speaking. In
the latter, shes often just reading.
I have to be active and I have to drive
a sort of emotional core through the
movie, says Adams, but yet Im very
much reactive at the same time. In
Nocturnal Animals, I was alone a lot.
Villeneuve, the Quebec director of
Sicario and Prisoners, says he needed a strong actress who could emote a lot
while often acting against a tennis ball.
I knew that the movie would be on
her shoulders, says Villeneuve. I
wanted someone who you could read
what was she was going through without words. The movie is Amy Adams, to
me.
Ford, the fashion designer whose previous film, A Single Man, pursued
Adams for some of the same qualities.
Its in her eyes. She has a soul and
you can look right into her eyes and see
it. You cannot not like Amy Adams,
says Ford. There was not a bad take of
that woman. Her brain is always moving and everything shes thinking is
always on her face.

Shes aided by an admirable Jeremy Renner, a theoretical


physicist, who nicely doesnt end up being smarmy and condescending. Forest Whitaker plays a grim military leader trying to protect the pairs work despite pressure from upstairs to
bomb the aliens into calamari.
Adams, whose character is reeling from personal turmoil,
delivers a heart-wrenchingly beautiful performance using her
ability to communicate a half-dozen emotions just standing
still. Wonder, sorrow and anguish are written all over her face.
But director Denis Villeneuve (Sicario) sometimes gets
lost in repetition and blind alleys, causing the inherent tautness of the story to go slack. Why do we spend so much time
in a shaft inside the aliens ship? How many times must we
watch Adams trudge off to be decontaminated?
The plot is based on Ted Chiangs Story of Your Life and
adapted by Eric Heisserer. The leap to the screen has been benefited by the slow reveal of the aliens, a gorgeous sequence in
which we follow a helicopter to a landing site and the nifty
way the filmmakers show the aliens visual language, which
resembles stains on a coffee table made by a perspiring beer
pint. (It brings new meaning to Banks statement, Language
is messy.)
Once communication has been made actually, that whiteboard seems less impressive when we learn the aliens had telepathic powers all along the real bad guys end up being that
old faceless movie punching bag: The military.
The film virtually goes off the rails at this point as tanks
and guns pointed from by-the-book soldiers threaten to undo
the good will. Whether the aliens are peaceful or malevolent
are they offering a tool or a weapon? turns this tale into
another run-of-the-mill alien invasion yarn.
The ghostly music by Johann Johannsson with an assist
by Max Richter is truly a thoughtful soundscape, and the
films inherent stillness is nicely broken by the militarys
engines of war, which threaten communication in more ways
than one.
But perhaps the biggest problem with Arrival is that first
contact has already clearly been made to Steven Spielberg
and his masterful Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Whether subconsciously or as an overt nod to the master,
Villeneuve echoes Spielbergs use of edgy soldiers and his
heroes sleeplessly obsessing about alien communication,
right down to using clay models and kids drawings. Both
films even share the image of backlit aliens speaking to
humans while in a cloud of fog.
So, with all due respect to Arrival, rent that 1977 film
instead.

TRUMP
Continued from page 1
and the Republican called the president
a very good man.
I very much look forward to dealing
with the president in the future, including his counsel, Trump said from the
Oval Office. Hell begin occupying the
office on Jan. 20.
While Trump noted that he and Obama
had never met before, their political
histories will forever be linked. Trump
spent years perpetrating the lie that
Obama was born outside the United
States. The president campaigned
aggressively against Trump during the
2016 campaign, warning that his election would put the republic at risk.
But at least publicly, the two men
appeared to put aside their animosity.
As the meeting concluded and journalists scrambled out of the Oval Office,
Obama smiled at his successor and
explained the unfolding scene.
We now are going to want to do
everything we can to help you succeed
because if you succeed the country succeeds, Obama said.
From the White House, Trump headed
to Capitol Hill for meetings with House
Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and
Senate Majority Leader Mitch
McConnell of Kentucky to discuss the
GOP legislative agenda. Ryan, who
holds the most powerful post in
Congress, was a sometime critic of

EXIT
Continued from page 1

THE REACTION
As election results rolled in, the
groups Facebook contacts grew from
about 11,000 to about 15,000, and its
email account received about 3,000
messages. Marinelli said he couldnt
keep up with the Twitter messages.
The next day, the group set up a tent
outside the state Capitol in
Sacramento. About a dozen supporters
wearing YesCalifornia. org T-shirts
talked to passers-by.
It would frankly be better off if we
were our own nation, said the groups
vice president, Marcus Ruiz Evans,
calling Trumps election further evidence that America is a sinking ship.
Our ship can sail on its own.
Skeptics, like Steve Angel of
Sacramento, criticized what he said is
an effort to balkanize the United
States by breaking it into pieces.
To the north, in Portland, Oregon,
two residents filed a separate petition
for a 2018 ballot initiative for Oregon
to secede.

Trump and never campaigned with the


nominee.
Emerging from the meetings, Trump
sketched out priorities for his presidency.
Were going to move very strongly
on immigration, he said. We will
move very strongly on health care. And
were looking at jobs. Big league
jobs.
Ryan took Trump on a tour of the
Speakers Balcony overlooking the
National Mall, the scene of Trumps
upcoming inauguration. The view,
Trump said, was really, really beautiful.
Trump was also beginning the
process of putting together his White
House team. Republican National
Committee Chairman Reince Priebus,
who worked his way into Trumps inner
circle during the election, and top campaign official Kellyanne Conway were
emerging as possible picks for White
House chief of staff, according to two
people familiar with the transition
planning.
A third person said conservative
media executive Steve Bannon was also
in the mix, though others insisted
Bannon would not have a White House
role. Those involved in the process
insisted on anonymity because they
were not authorized to discuss the planning publicly. A decision on chief of
staff is expected in the coming days.
First lady Michelle Obama met privately in the White House residence
with Trumps wife, Melania, while Vice
President Joe Biden saw Vice President-

elect Mike Pence late Thursday. Trumps


team was said to be sketching a robust
role for Pence, an experienced
Washington hand, that would include
both domestic and foreign policy
responsibilities.
Obama and Trump met alone, with no
staff present, White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters following the discussion.
The two men did not relitigate their
differences in the Oval Office, Earnest
said. Were on to the next phase.
Trump traveled to Washington from
New York on his private jet, breaking
with protocol by not bringing journalists in his motorcade or on his plane to
document his historic visit to the
White House. Trump was harshly critical of the media during his campaign
and for a time banned news organizations whose coverage he disliked from
his events.
At the White House, Obama chief of
staff Denis McDonough was seen walking along the South Lawn driveway
with Jared Kushner, Trumps son-inlaw. A handful of Trump aides trailed
them.
The show of civility at 1600
Pennsylvania Avenue contrasted with
postelection scenes of protests across a
politically
divided
country.
Demonstrators from New England to
the heartland and the West Coast vented
against the election winner on
Wednesday, chanting Not my president, burning a papier-mache Trump
head, beating a Trump pinata and carrying signs that said Impeach Trump.

THE PREVIOUS ATTEMPTS

happen . . . Things that you dont


expect to happen are happening, so
why not this? he said.
Supporters of the initiative note that
California, with its 39 million residents, is often compared to other
nations, not other states. Data from
the World Bank show its economy was
equivalent to the sixth-largest in the
world last year.

Any effort to get an issue on the ballot requires the gathering of hundreds
of thousands of signatures.
Marinelli tried unsuccessfully to put
several initiatives on the ballot this
year, including a proposal to declare
California a separate nation, to rename
the governor the president of
California and to fly the California
state flag atop the United States flag.
Those signature-gathering efforts fizzled.
Repeated attempts to create a 51st
state in Northern California, named
the State of Jefferson, have also failed.
That movement generally draws more
conservative supporters who are dissatisfied with Californias dominance
by Democrats.
The Yes California Independence
Campaign tries to appeal across the
political spectrum but holds a generally progressive ideology, Marinelli
said.
BREXIT (equals) CALEXIT?
Marinelli equates the movements
longshot chances to the recent decision by the United Kingdom to leave
the European Union.
People said Brexit wouldnt happen, and then they said Trump wouldnt

THE HISTORY
Threats to secede from the United
States have been a part of American
politics almost since the nation was
founded. The most serious attempt
came before and during the Civil War,
when 11 Southern states left to form
the Confederacy. The movement ended
with the defeat of Confederate forces.
Chapman University law professor
Ronald Rotunda said the Constitution
does not provide for state secession,
so the only way to do it legally would
be to change the Constitution an act
that requires the approval of Congress
and 38 states.
Its not going to happen. Youre
not going to find 38 states, he said.
The theory of our Constitution for
over 200 years is we sink or swim
together.

NOTICE OF PETITION TO
ADMINISTER ESTATE OF
Renate Bingham
Case Number: 16PRO000396
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of Renate Bingham. A Petition for Probate has been filed by Brian
David Bingham in the Superior Court of
California, County of San Mateo. The
Petition for Probate requests that Brian
David Bingham be appointed as personal
representative to administer the estate of
the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the
Independent Administration of Estates
Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions
without obtaining court approval. Before
taking certain very important actions,
however, the personal representative will
be required to give notice to interested
persons unless they have waived notice
or consented to the proposed action.)
The independent administration authority
will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and
shows good cause why the court should
not grant the authority.
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: December 2, 2016
at 9:00 a.m., Department 28, Superior
Court of California, County of San Mateo,
400 County Center, Redwood City, CA
94063.
If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the
Calilfornia Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under sectioin
9052 of the Callifornia Probate
Code.Other California statutes and legal
authority may affect your rights as a
creditor. You may want to consult with an
attorney knowledgable in California law.
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court a
Request for Special Notice (form DE154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.

Troops slow Mosul advance


as they clear neighborhoods
By Brian Rohan
and Qassim Adbul-Zahra
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BAGHDAD Iraqi troops fired at


positions held by the Islamic State
group in and around the northern city of
Mosul on Thursday but did not advance
as they regrouped and cleared neighborhoods once occupied by the extremists,
military officials said.
Troops are screening residents fleeing
from Mosul, searching for any IS militants trying to sneak out among the
more than 34,000 civilians fleeing to
displacement camps and host communities in nearby provinces.
Amnesty International reported allegations against security forces of arbitrary detention, forced disappearances
and ill-treatment of prisoners, including
an account that up to six people were
extrajudicially executed in late
October over suspected ties to IS.
The London-based rights organization said the alleged killings took place
near the area of Shura and Qayara outside
Mosul, and it urged the government to
investigate.
Men in Federal Police uniform have
carried out multiple unlawful killings,
apprehending and then deliberately
killing in cold blood residents in villages south of Mosul, said Lynn
Maalouf, deputy director for research at
Amnestys Beirut office.
In some cases the residents were tortured before they were shot dead execution-style, she said, adding that it was
crucial for Iraqi authorities to bring
those responsible to justice.
Without effective measures to suppress and punish serious violations,
there is a real risk that we could see war
crimes of this kind repeated in other
Iraqi villages and towns during the
Mosul offensive, Maalouf added.
Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi denied
the report, calling it incorrect information, and saying in a statement that IS
fighters were the ones responsible for
the killing of civilians.

German consulate in northern
Afghanistan comes under attack
KABUL, Afghanistan Germanys consulate in northern
Afghanistan was attacked late Thursday when a suicide car
bomber rammed the compound, a senior police official said.
The car exploded at the gate of the consulate in Mazar-iSharif city, destroying the gate and wall around 11.10 p.m.
local time, said Abdul Raziq Qaderi, head of security for Balkh
province. He said three police were wounded.
Police have surrounded the area and our forces are inside
the compound, he said.
The Taliban issued a statement saying they had sent suicide
attackers to the consulate.
Sher Jan Durrani, spokesman for the police chief of Balkh
province, said early Friday that a gun battle was going on at
the consulate.
Walter Hassmann, the German ambassador to Afghanistan,
confirmed the incident is ongoing and provided no further
details.
Mazar-i-Sharif is the capital of Balkh province and one of
the most important cities in the country. Residents in the city
reported hearing a huge explosion near the consulate that
shattered windows in buildings nearby.
Germany has 983 soldiers stationed in Afghanistan, most
of them in Balkh, as part of NATOs Resolute Support mission.

Iran holds funeral for 10 soldiers killed in Syria


REUTERS

An Iraqi soldier runs before he fires his rifle in Karamah, south of Mosul, Iraq.
second-largest city began Oct. 17, the
Shiite-led government has tried to prevent revenge attacks against the mainly
Sunni residents of Mosul and surrounding areas. State-sanctioned Shiite militias and Kurdish forces say they wont
enter the city, and the government has
vowed to investigate any human rights
violations and hold people accountable.
In late October, an Iraqi manning a
checkpoint south of Mosul with soldiers, Federal Police and local militiamen told the Associated Press that he
personally killed two men he said he
knew to be IS militants because he saw
them commit crimes. The AP could not
independently confirm his account.
A group of soldiers at the checkpoint
also told AP they had heard reports of
suspected IS fighters being beaten and
killed by security forces. One private
said the alleged abuses were supposedly
carried out by local tribal and militia
fighters in apparent revenge attacks.
At the time, military spokesman
Brig. Gen. Yahya Rasool said officials

had not registered any violation of any


kind by the security forces against civilians.
Iraqi troops are converging from several fronts on Mosul, the second-largest
city and the last major IS holdout in Iraq.
Kurdish peshmerga forces are holding a
line north of the city, while Iraqi army
and militarized police units approach
from the south, and government-sanctioned Shiite militias are guarding western approaches.
Col. John Dorrian, a spokesman for
the U.S.-led forces operating the air
campaign against IS, said advancing
troops and aircraft have destroyed some
70 tunnels the jihadis had been using to
launch surprise attacks from inside
densely populated areas.
Theyve set up elaborate defenses,
and we have to assume theyll do anything among the civilian population
because they dont care about anyone,
he said, noting that airstrikes had hit
hundreds of IS positions in the 3-weekold Mosul campaign.

TEHRAN, Iran Irans official IRNA news agency is


reporting that a funeral ceremony has been held for 10 soldiers who were killed in Syria.
The Thursday report said the families and relatives of the
deceased soldiers, as well as authorities and local citizens,
attended the funeral in holy city of Qom, some 80 miles (130
kilometers) south of the capital Tehran.
It called the soldiers defenders of shrine, but did not identify them or provide additional details on their deaths.
In August, Iran said that the families of at least 400 fighters
killed fighting in Iranian brigades in Syria had been referred
to the Martyr Foundation to receive financial support.
Iran has provided military and political backing to
President Bashar Assad in Syrias civil war, saying it is
defending Shiite shrines.

New Israeli machine

RAMAT GAN, Israel An Israeli company says it has
invented a machine that can instantly grade the clarity of polished diamonds a development it says will bring new standards to a painstaking process that has long been susceptible
to the subjectivity of appraisers.
Sarine Technologies said Thursday that the system will revolutionize the global diamond industry by simplifying the
grading process and enhancing consumer trust in each diamonds valuation. It is expected to hit markets next year.
