Former school board member
John Root is the newest addition
to the Burlingame City Council
after the council chose him as a
replacement for retired council-
man Jerry Deal at Monday nights
Root, who
was a former

selected from a
pool of eight
including Ross
Bruce, Russ
Cohen, John
Eaton, Pat
Giorni, John
Martos, Laurie
Simonson and
Eric Storey
after interviews
held last week.
The replace-
ment needed at
least three
votes from the council who used
ballots rather than roll call to
make their choice.
All of the eight applicants were
impressive, said Mayor Michael
The three votes came from
Brownrigg, Councilman Ricardo
Ortiz and Vice Mayor Terry Nagel.
Councilwoman Ann Keighran
voted for Simonson.
I did appreciate the process we
utilized with this, Keighran said.
Its going to be a difficult choice
for this council. Kudos to all of
you and your hard work.

A recent summit to discuss revi-
talizing Broadway in Burlingame
has been deemed a success by busi-
ness owners and city officials,
who say theyll continue to work
together to make changes to the
street that include possibly allow-
ing more food establishments to
open in the business district.
The Broadway Summit took
place Oct. 18 to allow merchants,
residents and property owners to
give feedback on the business dis-
trict. About 80 people attended,
which is great turnout for a public
meeting on a Saturday morning,
noted Mayor Michael Brownrigg.
We werent there to make deci-
sions, but to
promote ideas
and creative
ways to increase
the vitality on
Broadway, he
said. Theres a
lot to digest.
We need to go
back and check
with the com-
munity to see if
they want to make changes.
Such changes include lifting a
moratorium on bringing food
establishments and educational
services to Broadway to bring new
businesses to the street. The
Broadway Business Improvement
District, or BID, sent a letter to the
City summit sparks
host of new ideas for
Broadway renewal

Mimicking an expected change
in federal homeless policy, San
Mateo County is considering a
rapid rehousing pilot program that
focuses on getting families out of
shelters and more quickly into
more stable long-term housing.
Doing so would let the county
try out this new approach while
likely putting it in a better posi-
tion for federal funding. Small-
scale efforts have been tried previ-
ously but doesnt provide enough
of a track record to show how it
could work locally.
The federal Department of
Housing and Urban Development
is expected to change its policy
for homeless families away from
more traditional options like shel-
ters to rapid rehousing. HUD is

A piece of downtown San Mateo
history is getting a shiny new fin-
ish as the owners of the House of
Merkel are undergoing the
painstaking process of restoring
the 1930s terra-cotta tiled Art

The 83-year-old structure at the
corner of Second Avenue and B

downtown activity in its heyday
housing a cigar store, liquor store,
billiard parlor and those who liked
to place lucrative bets on the hors-

His son, Angelo Michael Lancaster,
also known by his Sikh name, Kartar
Khalsa, was discovered hiding behind
a tree in the backyard and arrested on
suspicion of homicide.

of Santa Rosa it appears the son also
used the sledgehammer to break into
the front door of the home.
Father and son had recently recon-
ciled, and the son was living in a sep-
arate unit at the house.
It was not immediately clear whether
Lancaster had an attorney.

Theres a stark divide between the goals of
the five candidates running for three four-
year seats on the Sequoia Healthcare District
Board of Directors this November as two
incumbents argue the community at large
continues to receive vital assistance while
one incumbent and two newcomers promote
The district was formed in 1946 to oversee
Sequoia Hospital, which opened in 1950,
and in 1996, voters opted to turn hospital
management to Catholic Healthcare West,
which changed its name to Dignity Health
in 2012.
In 2007, the board voted to contribute
$75 million to the construction of the new
hospital and give up its seats on the hospi-
tals governing board.
Despite no longer overseeing the hospi-
tal, the board has continued to use its spe-
cial district property tax revenue for philan-
thropic health care initiatives and has been
the focus of two San Mateo County Civil
Grand Jury investigations whether it was
using its tax money appropriately.
The district covers Atherton, Belmont,
Redwood City, San Carlos, Woodside,
Portola Valley and portions of Menlo Park;
however, it helps fund nonprofits and pro-
grams outside its boundaries with its $9
million budget.
Incumbents Arthur Faro, former CEO of
the Sequoia Hospital, and Dr. Jerry Shefren,
said the district fills gaps in the countywide
health care system by allotting grants to
school wellness programs, education, non-
profits and more.
Incumbent Jack Hickey, along with chal-
lengers John McDowell and Mark De Paula
argue the original intention of the district
lapsed once it gave up control of Sequoia
Hospital. They said if the district wants to
continue to fund nonprof-
its, some outside its
jurisdiction, residents
should be able to vote for
dissolution. The trio said
if they make the
November cut, theyd
seek dissolution.
Holding a purpose
De Paula, a Vietnam-era
veteran who is retired
from the telecommunica-
tions and industrial coat-
ing industries and recent-
ly ran an unsuccessful
campaign for a seat on
the San Mateo County
Board of Supervisors,
said the district shouldnt
be using taxpayer money
to fund special interest
Im really just against
special interest groups
and any kind of charity
programs and I really feel
that this health care dis-
trict should not be a char-
ity organization. Let the
county take care of any
additional charity issues
if they want to, and they
do, De Paula said.
Faro said although the original mission
of the district has changed, it continues to
fund vital health care programs.
Were giving 100 percent of the tax
money back to the community for health
purposes. Thousands of people have been
benefited by this and all the money is going
back to the community, not some slush
fund, Faro said.
Hickey, a Libertarian who has promoted
the districts dissolution since he first
earned a seat on the board
in 2002, said he advo-
cates for taxpayers and
continues to run for re-
election for one main
To carry out the rec-
ommendation of the
[civil] grand jury, which
was to seek voter
approval before we con-
tinue pursuing the phi-
lanthropy that the dis-
trict was engaged in and
to stop collecting taxes
until that was done,
Hickey said.
McDowell, a small
business owner, said
despite the programs the
district supports, it isnt
functioning as it was
Many of the nonprofits it supports, they
have good programs and do wonderful
things for people. But the issue is
whether the district should be getting prop-
erty tax money and distribute it that way, in
ways that werent approved, McDowell
Shefren said his experience as both a
physician and in administration has shown
him how dramatically the health care sys-
tem in general has changed throughout the
years. The district continues to provide
vital assistance such as helping to fund
school wellness programs and education
Five seek three Sequoia Healthcare District seats
Two groups have juxtaposing views: Dissolve district, continue health initiatives

Car thieves continue
to strike Hillsborough
An uptick in Hillsborough vehicle bur-
glaries over the past few weeks are prompt-
ing police to remind residents to protect
themselves from becoming victims.
The common theme in the cases is valu-
ables or electronics are left in plain view
and residents should remove such property
when parking their cars, according to
The thieves typically strike in the
evening and gain entry into vehicles
through unlocked doors or by smashing a
window, according to police.
Whenever possible, residents should
park in a secured garage or an area covered
by motion activated lighting and report any
suspicious activity to Hillsborough police
at (650) 375-7470 or call 911 if they wit-
ness a crime in progress.
Bomb scare closes
Redwood City streets
A suspicious and noisy package left in a
mailbox in downtown Redwood City
prompted ofcers and the San Mateo
County sheriffs bomb squad to close down
Jefferson Avenue and Broadway Monday
The false alarm started around 1 p. m.
when someone heard an electronic device
making noise in a mailbox downtown,
Redwood City police Lt. Sean Hart said.
The roads were closed off for about a half
hour before the bomb squad determined the
package wasnt a bomb, Hart said.
Local briefs
to Yosemite National Park may soon have to
pay more to enter and camp overnight, under
proposed fee increases announced Monday.
A seven-day pass for each car entering
Yosemite could go up from $20 to $30,
Ranger Scott Gediman said, adding that rates
last changed in 1997. An annual pass would
go up from $40 to $60.
The extra money will go back into the
park, repairing buildings, improving trans-
portation and enhancing the visitors expe-
rience, he said. Campers today spending
between $5 and $20 a night depending on
the campsite may have to pay between $6
and $24, and group campsites that cost $40
could rise to $48 a night.
The fees are changing to keep pace with
inflation, officials said, adding that camp-
ground rates havent risen since 2006.
There is no proposed change to the $80
annual passes honored at all federally man-
aged parks, the $10 entrance fee seniors age
62 and older pay and free park access for
active members of the military, officials
The public has until Nov. 20 to have its
say on the changes. If the new rates are
adopted, Gediman said visitors may see the
higher fees early next year.

Brown: California
needs long-term
vision on water
By Juliet Williams
Californias longstanding water
problems will take tens of bil-
lions of dollars more and a large
dose of political compromise, but
the epic drought may provide new
motivation, Gov. Jerry Brown
told a Stanford University water
conference on Monday.
Water is going to be a major
issue that will be addressed in the
California Legislature and in
Congress, and throughout com-
munities everywhere, because
water doesnt get solved by one
person or in one place, he said.
Still, the Democratic governor
said he intends to serve as leader
on the issue if he is re-elected in
November, telling the crowd that
the states drought, now entering
its fourth year, is too complex for
a less experienced governor to
tackle. He said his work began
when he was governor the first
time, from 1975 to 1983, which
also happened to be during the
states last major drought.
Voters in 1982 rejected his plan
to build a peripheral canal
through the Sacramento-San
Joaquin Delta to ship water from
Northern California to Southern
Mondays event also gave
Brown an opportunity to promote
a November ballot initiative,
Proposition 1, which would
authorize $7. 5 billion for water
infrastructure projects and conser-
But he said that will not be near-
ly enough to address the long-
term water challenges, which will
require tens of billions of dollars
invested over the next 10 to 20
While polls show support for
the bipartisan ballot measure,
Browns new $25 billion plan to
build twin tunnels underneath the
Delta has faced intense opposi-
tion. The project is intended to
make it easier to pump water from
the Sacramento River to Central
Valley farms and Southern
California cities, while guarding
against the effects of a levee col-
lapse during a major earthquake.
City of Sacramento water conservation official Steven Upton walks back to his truck after delivering a citation
to a home where sprinklers are running on a mandatory no watering day.

UberX and Lyft will be allowed to
operate at San Francisco
International Airport in the next 30
days, SFO officials announced
We are committed to be an indus-
try leader, creating a roadmap for
innovative business models like
Lyft and UberX to operate legally in
an airport, airport director John
Martin said in a statement Monday.
Were proud to be the first airport
in the U.S. to have both signed per-
mits from both companies. This
gives customers at SFO more
choice, without compromising our
focus on safety and security.
Lyft was the first company to
obtain a permit to operate at a U.S.
airport, in Nashville, while Sidecar
became the first to get a permit at a
California airport when it reached
an agreement with SFO last week.
The transportation network com-
panies, in which travelers are con-
nected through a smartphone app
with part-time drivers using per-
sonal vehicles, were prohibited
from picking up or dropping off
passengers at airports when the
California Public Utilities
Commission set new regulations
on the companies last year.
SFO began requiring permits in
April, but none of the companies
actually reached an agreement with
the airport until last week.
Meanwhile, the airport has issued
numerous citations for drivers oper-
ating there illegally.
SFO spokesman Doug Yakel said
last week that hundreds of verbal
admonishments had been issued for
drivers using the airport while not
permitted and about three dozen
misdemeanor citations have been
issued for second offenses.

SAN FRANCISCO Hillary Rodham
Clinton urged Democratic voters not to be
complacent about the November midterm
elections, saying Monday that working
women and their families will lose out on a
better future if Republicans gain control of
both houses of Congress.
The former secretary of state made the
remarks during a sold-out womens luncheon
in San Francisco that raised $1. 4 million for
the Democratic Congressional Campaign
The fundraiser was hosted by House
Democratic leader and former speaker Nancy
Pelosi, who joked that she was ready to give
up her own title as the highest-ranking
woman in U. S. politics to elect a female
Democrat as president and soon, a crowd-
pleasing reference to the possibility of
Clinton running for president in 2016.
If Hillary Clinton, mother and grand-
mother, decides to run for president she will
win, and like I have said before she will be
one of the best-prepared leaders to preside in
the Oval Office, Pelosi said in her introduc-
tion to Clintons speech. That she happens
to be a woman is a bonus and a wonderful,
wonderful thing.
After acknowledging several congres-
sional Democrats in the room who are run-
ning for re-election, Clinton told her over-
whelmingly female audience that only
Democrats have fought and would continue
fighting to raise the minimum wage and for
paid family leave, affordable child care and
other policies that primarily benefit low-
income and middle-class women.
It is not easy serving and every year it
seems to get more challenging, but these
candidates and many more across the coun-
try have a plan to jump-start the middle
class and once more make it work for every-
one, she said. These elections in two
weeks and one day come down to a simple
question: who is on your side?
Clinton reminded the audience of the state
the nations economy was in when President
Barack Obama took office and Pelosi
presided over the House and accused the
Republican Party of trying to rewrite histo-
ry by blaming Democrats for the slow
Its truly regrettable that despite all the
great work Nancy did and President Obama,
given what was inherited when the president
came into office that we are having to work
so hard to elect and re-elect Democrats. Its
as though the other side wants to pass an air
of amnesia over America, she said.
Clinton: Midterm elections
should motivate women
OSIJEK, Croatia Former Auschwitz
guard Jakob Denzinger lived the American
His plastics company in the Rust Belt
town of Akron, Ohio, thrived. By the late
1980s, he had acquired the trappings of suc-
cess: a Cadillac DeVille and a Lincoln Town
Car, a lakefront home, investments in oil
and real estate.
Then the Nazi hunters showed up.
In 1989, as the U. S. government prepared
to strip him of his citizenship, Denzinger
packed a pair of suitcases and fled to
Germany. He later settled in this pleasant
town on the Drava River, where he lives
comfortably, courtesy of U. S. taxpayers. He
collects a Social Security payment of about
$1, 500 each month, nearly twice the take-
home pay of an average Croatian worker.
Denzinger, 90, is among dozens of sus-
pected Nazi war criminals and SS guards who
collected millions of dollars in Social
Security payments after being forced out of
the United States, an Associated Press
investigation found.
In response to APs findings, a White
House spokesman said Monday that Nazi
suspects should not be getting the benefits.
But the spokesman, Eric Schultz, did not say
whether or how the White House might end
the payments.
The payments flowed through a legal
loophole that has given the U. S. Justice
Department leverage to persuade Nazi sus-
pects to leave. If they agreed to go, or sim-
ply fled before deportation, they could keep
their Social Security, according to inter-
views and internal government records.
Like Denzinger, many lied about their
Nazi pasts to get into the U. S. following
World War II, and eventually became
American citizens.
Among those who benefited:
Armed SS troops who guarded the Nazi
network of camps where millions of Jews
An SS guard who took part in the brutal
liquidation of the Warsaw ghetto in Nazi-
occupied Poland that killed as many as
13, 000 Jews.
A Nazi collaborator who engineered the
arrest and execution of thousands of Jews in

using slave labor to build the V-2 rocket that
pummeled London. He later won NASAs

Twenty-two arrested,
meth seized in California bust
SAN FRANCISCO California authori-
ties have announced the arrests of 22 people
and the seizure of 500 pounds of metham-
phetamine as part of a drug investigation tar-
geting gangs tied to Mexicos Sinaloa cartel.
The state attorney generals office said
Monday the arrests and drug seizures over the
past year were based on an investigation that
found methamphetamine from Mexico was
being delivered to the Nitro gang in Southern
California. According to state authorities,
the gang made regular road trips to Contra
Costa County to distribute methampheta-
mine to other drug trafficking organizations,
including the Urtiz gang.
In addition to the drugs, authorities seized
one firearm, four vehicles and more than
$720,000 in cash.
The investigation, dubbed Operation
Road Trip, included authorities from Contra
Costa County and Los Angeles.

Suicide, car bombings
in Iraq kill at least 33
By Sinan Salaheddin
BAGHDAD Militants unleashed attacks on Iraqs
majority Shiite community on Monday, killing at least 33
people, the latest in relentless assaults that have challenged
the Shiite-led government as it battles the Sunni-led insur-
gency by the Islamic State group.
A suicide bomber hit a mosque in Baghdad as Shiite wor-
shippers left after noon prayers, killing 17 people, while a
triple car bombing in the holy city of Karbala killed 16.
Iraq has been plunged into its worst crisis since the U. S.
troops left at the end of 2011 in the wake of the blitz by the
Islamic State militants this summer.
The extremists group captured large chunks of land in
western and northern Iraq, carving out a proto-state on the
territory it controls between Syria and Iraq and imposing its
own harsh interpretation of Islamic law, or Shariah.
Since August, U. S. warplanes have been carrying out
airstrikes against the group as Iraqi and Kurdish security
forces work to retake territory it has seized.
In Baghdad, the bomber blew himself up among Shiite
worshippers as they were leaving a mosque in a commercial
area in the city center after midday prayers Monday, killing
at least 17 people and wounding 28, a police officer said.
In Karbala, three separate car bombs went off simultane-
ously, killing at least 16 people and wounding 41, another
police officer said. The city, about 90 kilometers (55 miles)
south of Baghdad, is home to the tombs of two most revered
Shiite imams and the site of year-round pilgrimages. The
explosives-laden cars were parked in commercial areas and
parking lots near government offices, the officer added.
Medical officials confirmed the casualty figures. All offi-
cials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not
authorized to talk to media.
The attacks in Baghdad and Karbala came a day after a sui-
cide bombing targeted another Shiite mosque in the Iraqi
capital, in the western Harithiya neighborhood, killing 28
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the latest
attacks but they bore the hallmarks of the al-Qaida-break-
away Islamic State group, which has recently claimed sever-
al other large bombings in Baghdad and elsewhere, particu-
larly in Shiite areas.
Rebel fighters take up positions on the frontline against forces of Syria's President Bashar al-Assad in the Handarat area,
north of Aleppo.

SURUC, Turkey Turkey said it
was helping Iraqi Kurdish fighters
cross into Syria to support their
brethren fighting Islamic State mili-
tants in a key border town, although
activists inside embattled Kobani said
no forces had arrived by Monday
evening, raising questions about
whether the mission was really under-
The statement by Turkeys Foreign
Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu came
hours after the U. S. airdropped
weapons and ammunition to resupply
Kurdish fighters for the first time.
Those airdrops Sunday followed weeks
of airstrikes by a U. S. -led coalition in
and near Kobani.
After a relative calm, heavy fighting
erupted in the town as dusk fell, with
the clatter of small arms and tracer
fire, as well as the thud of mortar
rounds and big explosions of two
airstrikes that resounded across the
We are helping peshmerga forces to
enter into Kobani to give support,
Cavusoglu said at a news conference,
referring to the security forces of the
largely autonomous Kurdish region of
northern Iraq. The Kurdish govern-
ment there is known to be friendly to
the Turkish government.
A peshmerga spokesman said he had
not been ordered to move units to
They have not given us any orders
to move our units, said the
spokesman, Halgurd Hekmat. But we
are waiting, and we are ready.
The Kurdish activists in Kobani said
there was no sign of any peshmerga
Still, it was unprecedented for
Turkey to promise to give Kurds pas-
sage to fight in Syria. That, combined
with the U. S. airdrops, reflected the
importance assigned to protecting
Kobani from the Sunni extremists of
the Islamic State group, which has
rampaged across Iraq and Syria in
recent months.
It also underscored the enormity of
the challenge in battling militants
who have been trying to seize Kobani
since last month to spread their rule
along the mountainous spine of the
Syria-Turkey border, an area dominat-
ed by ethnic Kurds.
Ankara views Kurdish fighters in
Syria as loyal to what Turkish offi-
cials regard as an extension of the
group known as the Kurdistan
Workers Party, or PKK. That group
has waged a 30-year insurgency in
Turkey and is designated a terrorist
group by the U. S. and NATO.
The government is under pressure to
take greater action against the IS mil-
itants not only from the West but
also from Kurds in Syria and inside
Turkey who accuse Ankara of standing
by while their people are slaughtered.
Earlier this month across Turkey,
there were widespread protests that
threatened to derail promising talks to
end the PKK insurgency.
Although a significant departure
from previous positions, Turkeys
announcement to allow fighters to
cross its territory is not a complete
policy reversal, since it involves
peshmerga fighters from Iraq and not
those from the PKK.
It remains uncertain whether Ankara
would allow heavily armed Iraqi
Kurdish fighters to make the journey
in large numbers. It is also unclear if
many of those peshmerga troops
would even do so, given that the IS
militants still threaten their areas in
Turkey says it was helping
Kurdish fighters enter Syria

In the interest of safety
As usual, I took my usual jog on a
recent Sunday along Caada Road on
the dirt path that runs alongside it in
front of the Pulgas Water Temple. Also
as usual, I was almost hit by an illegal
mountain biker riding on the trail.
Numerous posted signs clearly indicate
that no bikes (or dogs) are allowed on
that trail.
Since this is such a common occur-
rence, it is obvious that no enforce-
ment of the no bikes/dogs policy is
done. Because hikers, walkers, joggers
and parents with children think that
there are no bikers or dogs allowed on
the trail, we are not especially vigilant
in looking over our shoulders to be
wary. If the signs were removed, then
everyone would know to watch out
because the signs create a false sense
of security. May I suggest that in the
interest of safety, we either enforce the
law or remove the signs?

Sequoia Healthcare District
Jackpot! Voting taxpayers have a
rare opportunity in the November elec-
tion perhaps to eliminate what today is
a costly charge on their property taxes.
If elected, three candidates for the
Board of the Sequoia Health Care
District Jack Hickey, Mark De Paula
and John McDowell promise voters
a referendum to determine the future
existence of the district.
The Sequoia Healthcare District today
has nothing to do with Sequoia
Hospital.In 1996, it was severed from
the hospital, the construction of which
it was created to help nance. Today,
the district exists only as an expensive
bureaucracy that permits a clique of
directors to spend our tax dollars on
their favorite charities.
Ask yourself, in this era of big gov-
ernment, when was the last time you
had a chance to vote to reduce your
property taxes?

to x it.
Candidate Nicole David presented

the grand jury, but the incumbents
arent interested in reform.
Nicoles ideas to manage the dis-
tricts budget (our tax dollars) more
responsibly and with transparency
deserve our support. As a marine biolo-
gist, her expertise in water quality and

are refreshing in comparison to the

Pension fixes
Last Thursday, your paper ran an Op-
Ed piece on the supposed xes to the
California, public employee retirement
system, or CalPERS. The piece,
Penny-ante pension xes by the
Orange County Register, stated,
While state and local politicians may
want to believe that they have
addressed the pension issue once and
for all, it is far from resolved. I would
agree; in fact, I would say, it is not
resolved at all.
Ronald Reagan once said, You dont
x bad policies by rearranging. ... You
have to replace bad ideas with good
ones. The rst place to begin true
reform of CalPERS is to agree that pay-
ing a retiree a guaranteed amount,
regardless of how much they paid in or
how well the investments did, is a bad
idea. While the CalPERS board and
their accountants may try to guess at
what these gures ought to be, in the
end, they are still following a bad idea.
There is a better idea and its one we
are all familiar with: it is called the
401(k). Actually, in the public sector,
an avenue of this sort, modeled after
the 401(k), already exists; its called
the 457(b) Plan. It allows an employee
to put up to $16,500 per year into a
retirement account and invest the
money for the future. If they are over
50, the maximum allowed is $22,000.
The solution to reforming CalPERS
has nothing to do with rearranging
numbers in a formula or tweaking
retirement age; this approach leaves all
the risk of the approaching tsunami on
the heads of the public. The true solu-
tion is to move all public employees
to a 401(k) type system, which already
exists for public employees, and is
called a 401(b) Plan.

Twenty-five years later
Twenty-ve years ago last week the
Bay Area experienced its worst earth-
quake since 1906.
There is, however, one thing that
worked out in all of our favor, that is
that most of us were at home or inside
watching the world series between the
As, and the Giants. Things worked out
the same for us last month in the sec-
ond worst earthquake in the Bay Area
since 1906.
This time, the shaking took place
while most of us were sleeping in bed.
If either of these earthquakes had taken
place on a regular business day, just
imagine how much greater the damage
would have been to people, and proper-
ty. Hopefully, this luck will be on our
side again when the big one that
experts are predicting will happen
soon takes place.

Big movers
By Ken Sweet
NEW YORK The U. S. stock mar-
ket moved quietly higher Monday as
investors decided to step back into a
market that was rattled by white-
knuckle turbulence last week.
It was a rare move upward for a mar-
ket that, for the most part, has been
moving lower for the past month.
The Standard & Poors 500 index
rose 17. 26 points, or 0. 9 percent, to
1, 904. 02 and the Nasdaq composite
gained 57. 64 points, or 1. 4 percent,
to 4, 316. 07.
The Dow Jones industrial average did
not fare as well, and wound up essen-
tially flat for the day. The 30-stock
index rose 19. 26 points, or 0. 1 per-
cent, to 16, 399. 67. The main reason
the Dow did not perform as well as the
other two indexes was IBM.
IBM fell $12. 95, or 7 percent, to
$169. 10 after the company reported
earnings that missed Wall Streets
expectations. The company also
missed on revenue and warned that it
may not meet its profit goals for the
foreseeable future. IBM was the
biggest decliner in both the Dow and
in the S&P 500.
The Dow is whats known as a price-
weighted stock index, which means
more expensive stocks like IBM tend
to have an out-sized impact on its
movements. Without the effect of
IBMs decline, the blue chip index
would have been up 102 points.
The quiet trading on Wall Street on
Monday came after a wild ride last
week, when the Dow moved between
triple-digit losses and triple-digit
gains. Investors remain concerned that
economic weakness in Europe could
spread to the U. S. Many investors
remain bullish on the U. S. stock mar-
ket over the long term, especially con-
sidering how well the U. S. economy
has been doing.
I think we are having a modest cor-
rection and I dont think this is a new
bear market, said Scott Clemons,
chief investment strategist for private
banking at Brown Brothers Harriman.
The calm can be seen in the decline
in the VIX, Wall Streets so-called fear
index. The VIX fell 15 percent to
18. 7, closer to its recent average of
15. It went as high as 30 last week, but
before this market volatility started,
the VIX had been trading near record
Many market watchers expected
more volatile trading in the days and
weeks to come. The S&P 500 is down
just 5. 3 percent from its mid-
September high, even with the con-
cerns about Europe and Asia. Also the
market has had four straight weeks of
When a market gets as fully-priced
as this one, it doesnt take much for
things to go wrong, said Wayne
Wilbanks, chief investment officer of
Wilbanks, Smith & Thomas Asset
Management. This market is just
shifting back to more normal market
behavior after being in a low-volatili-
ty period for much longer than it
should have.
This is one of the busiest weeks for
company earnings. A total of 130
companies in the S&P 500 index will
report their quarterly results, including
big names like American Express,
Cola-Cola and AT&T.
One big name to report after
Mondays closing bell was Apple. The
consumer electronics giant reported a
profit of $1. 42 a share, beating the
$1. 30 share expected by analysts.
Sales also topped forecasts. Apples
stock rose $1. 14, or 1 percent, to
$100. 95 in after-market trading.
U. S. government bond prices were
mostly unchanged Monday. The yield
on the 10-year Treasury note held
steady at 2. 19 percent.
One symptom of the concerns over
the global economy has been the
sharp fall in oil prices in recent
weeks. The price of oil fell slightly
Monday, remaining near its lowest
level since June of 2012. Benchmark
U. S. crude fell 4 cents to close at
$82. 71 a barrel on the New York
Mercantile Exchange.
Stocks quietly move higher
By Mae Anderson
NEW YORK Cord cutters rejoiced
last week after HBO and CBS
announced plans to sell stand-alone
streaming services, a move that cable
and satellite television providers have
resisted for years. Customers tired of
paying big fees for hundreds of chan-
nels they never watch just to have
access to a few favorite shows might
be expected to start cancelling cable
service in droves. Get Netflix, throw
in HBO, add a network here and there
why would anyone sign up now for
Well, dont sound the death knell for
cable companies yet.
Some would-be customers may balk
when they see just how much paying a
la carte actually costs. Stations that
offer services a la carte will have to
pay for marketing that the cable and
satellite companies usually cover.
Fewer eyeballs on live TV could mean
less advertising revenue, since online
ads are generally cheaper, and that will
boost the networks cost of running
the channel. And smooth streaming
costs money: to avoid so-called
throttling during peak evening
viewing times, Netflix buckled to
broadband distributors like Comcast
and Verizon and paid up so that its
streaming service would run at a high-
er bandwidth and work more smoothly.
Those added costs might be passed on
to customers.
And for all those cable haters out
there, sorry: Cutting the cord wont
mean cutting out your cable provider.
They often own some of your favorite
channels (Comcast owns NBC
Universal, parent of Bravo and USA)
and in most areas they are the gate-
keepers to the Internet. Offering popu-
lar channels like HBO over streaming
could actually help cable companies
sell more expensive broadband servic-
es to customers.
The cable business is evolving
from mainly selling you a pay TV
package to mainly selling you a broad-
band Internet service, says FBR
Research analyst Barton Crockett.
Content companies and cable compa-
nies are evolving from being very
worried about making their content
available through Internet services to
very excited about that. Its a way to
sell their Internet and get people to
pay for faster speeds.
The cable and satellite television
industry is going through major con-
solidation, to mitigate the higher cost
each year of carriage fees that the net-
works charge for their channels and
boost pricing power. Comcast Corp.
is in the process of buying Time
Warner Cable Inc. for $45 billion,
which would make it by far the largest
TV and broadband provider. AT&T Inc.
is planning to buy satellite service
DirecTV for $48. 5 billion. Both are
under regulatory review; customers
complain such deals would create
monopolies that would hijack choice.
Meanwhile, pay-TV subscriptions
have flatlined at about 101 million,
according to data from research firm
SNL Kagan. The number of high-speed
Internet subscribers rose about 1 per-
cent during the same period to 90. 1
million. By comparison, pay-TV
nemesis Netflix Inc. has about 37. 2
million U. S. subscribers and expects
to add 1. 85 million during the final
months of this year.

SAN FRANCISCO Excitement for
Apples new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus mod-
els drove sales of a record 39. 3 million
iPhones in the last quarter, boosting
the companys earnings and revenue
well above expectations.
All told, the company sold $23. 7
billion worth of iPhones, beating the
$21. 5 billion in sales expected by
analysts polled by FactSet. Apples
signature smartphones are the compa-
nys biggest source of revenue and
We had a really, really good quar-
ter, Chief Financial Officer Luca
Maestri told the Associated Press. He
also credited strong demand for the
companys Mac computers and its
online app store.
But the company didnt do as well
with its iPad tablets. Apple said it sold
13 percent fewer iPad tablets than it did
a year ago. That follows an industry-
wide decline in tablet sales. Still, the
company reported even lower iPad
sales than analysts had expected.
Maestri said Apple is counting on
interest in new models coming out this
week and a partnership with IBM,
which will create new tablet software
for business users, to help shore up
tablet sales in the coming months.
Apples profit rose more than 12
percent for the three months that ended
Sept. 27 to $8. 47 billion. Total sales
also climbed over 12 percent year-
over-year, to $42. 12 billion.
The Cupertino, California, company
issued a strong forecast for the upcom-
ing holiday shopping season as well.
The company said it expects total rev-
enue, from all products, of between
$63. 5 billion and $66. 5 billion during
the quarter that ends in December. That
suggests the company will likely beat
the expectations of analysts, who were
forecasting $63. 7 billion, according
to FactSet.
Apples shares have surged more
than 35 percent this year, when adjust-
ed for a seven-to-one stock split that
occurred in June. The stock is off
slightly since hitting an all-time
adjusted high of $103. 30 last month.

IBM 3Q disappoints as it sheds empty calories
NEW YORK IBM disappointed investors Monday,
reporting weak revenue growth again and a big charge to
shed its costly chipmaking division as the tech giant tries
to steer its business toward cloud computing and social-
mobile services. Shares fell more than 7 percent as
investors sold off sharply and the stock dragged the Dow 30
into the red.
Is it too late for IBM? Or can Big Blue weather the com-
petition as it transforms its business for the cloud?
Remaking itself is something IBM has done many times
through its long history. Starting more than a century ago
in punch-card tabulators and time clocks, it grew to encom-
pass the giant mainframe computers and Selectric typewrit-
ers of the 1960s and launched its revolutionary personal
computer in the 1980s.
But by the early 1990s its early lead in personal comput-
ing was destroyed by tough competition that left it on the
brink of bankruptcy.
Toyota adds 247K vehicles to air bag recall tally
DETROIT Toyota is recalling 247, 000 vehicles in
high-humidity areas as an air bag problem that has plagued
most of the auto industry continues to widen.
The recall posed Monday by U. S. safety regulators covers
the 2003 to 2005 Corolla and Matrix, the 2002 to 2005
Sequoia and the 2003 to 2005 Tundra. Also included is the
2003 to 2005 Pontiac Vibe made by Toyota.
Inflators can rupture in air bags manufactured by parts
supplier Takata, causing metal fragments to fly out when
bags are inflated in crashes. The problem has caused serious
injuries. So far, automakers have recalled about 12 million
vehicles worldwide because of the problem.

Sacred Heart Prep freshman Sara Choy has emerged as one of the up-and-coming stars in the
Central Coast Section.Last Tuesday,she upset reigning CCS champ Elizabeth Yao in staight sets.
By Terry Bernal
Shes not even 5-feet tall and weighs in at a
lithe 90 pounds, but Sacred Heart Prep fresh-
man Sara Choy has emerged as a massive force
on the tennis court.
When Choy walked onto the court at Menlo
School last Tuesday for he No. 1 singles match
with defending Central Coast Section champion
Elizabeth Yao, the much taller senior Yao towered
over Choy and Yao was still sitting down.
Its a common assumption that smaller
statures dont make for good tennis players.
The worlds former No. 1 womens player, 5-6
Martina Hingis, used to face criticism often
for just that. Choy faces plenty of likeminded
But Sacred Heart Prep head coach Losaline
Mafileo has a simple response to those voices.
Just wait until you see her hit the ball,
Mafileo said.
Choy made her SHP coach proud in last
Tuesdays matchup, downing Yao in straight
sets, 7-6 (7-4), 6-0. In light of scoring the
major upset, Choy has been named the San
Mateo Daily Journal Athlete of the Week.
She started out slow, making a lot of errors,
Mafileo said of her No. 1s performance against
the reigning CCS champ. But then towards the
middle of the match, she started making better
shots and started forcing errors out of Yao.
That has been the secret to Choys success,
according to Mafileo. Choy belies her under-
whelming size by overpowering opponents,
often wearing them down. Her tenacity has
earned her a No. 12 ranking in the nation
among prep freshmen by the Tennis
Recruiting Network.
Not even through her first full varsity sea-
son, she has already put herself on the map as
one of the top freshmen Mafileo has seen in
her 11 years at the helm of SHP.
Shes probably the best in terms of her
standing coming into the school, Mafileo said.
The Gators have four freshmen on roster this
season, including No. 2 single Melina
Stavropoulos, while Maia Granoski and
Natalie Henriquez solidify the doubles ranks.
But Choy has put herself on another level by
contending with the best in the CCS in Yao.
They are the two most talented players
around the Central Coast Section, Mafileo
said. Thats what I feel.

said Menlo coach
Jack Bowen.
The Sacred Heart Prep boys and girls
programs employ a similar mindset,
although playing in the West Bay
Athletic League allows them tougher
league competition.
To that end, the Knights have played
and beaten the likes of CCS powers St.
Francis (10-8) and Bellarmine (11-10,
overtime win), along with NCS con-
tenders like San Ramon Valley (11-10
win), Acalanes (9-8 win) Las Lomas (9-7
win) and De La Salle (16-10 win).
One of the Knights two losses came to
Campolindo, an 11-9 loss Saturday.
But to Bowen and the Knights, its not
about playing and beating the toughest
competition he can nd. To the Menlo

does is to be and compete at the top of
their game regardless of the opponent.

SANTACLARA San Francisco 49ers cen-
ter Daniel Kilgore is scheduled to undergo sea-
son-ending surgery Tuesday on a fractured left
ankle sustained in the third quarter of Sunday
nights loss at Denver.
Coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday the
injury is similar to what nose tackle Ian
Williams suffered in Week 2 of the 2013 sea-
son at Seattle that required four operations and
kept him sidelined until training camp this
year. Kilgore, who will be placed on injured
reserve, was carted off
after getting hurt when
linebacker Brandon
Marshall inadvertently
ran into his lower leg at
the end of a run by Frank
Gore during a 42-17 loss
to the Broncos.
Its similar. He was dis-
appointed. He played well
in the game. So thats an
obstacle to overcome. Hes made of the right
stuff. No doubt that hell overcome,
Harbaugh said. Hes been playing really
well, better and better each week. Like I said, I
thought he played really well in this game.
Say a prayer and hope the surgery goes real
well tomorrow, which Im confident it will and
well start healing.
Marcus Martin, a 20-year-old rookie third-
round draft pick, is the favorite to fill in for
Kilgore on the starting offensive line. Martin
recently returned to practice following a train-
ing camp knee injury.
Martins NFL debut would likely be Nov. 2
at home against the Rams after the bye.
Well be moving forward and making that
determination as we go, Harbaugh said, not-
ing Martin has the upper hand.
Harbaugh said he would expect linebacker
Patrick Willis, who missed Sundays loss with
a strained toe, and rookie cornerback Jimmie
Ward (quadriceps) will return once the 49ers
(4-3) are back from their week off. Players
watched game film Monday, then were set to
part ways for the week. Harbaugh said the
49ers would have Thursday through Sunday off
from any work with coaches.
Replacing Kilgore is a big task.
Its always tragic to lose a player, quarter-
back Colin Kaepernick said after the game.

four blocks throughout. Not bad for a setter
who also had a match-high 10 kills and 21
assists. The block total was her best in a
three-set match this season. It isnt a career
best, however, as she had three five-blocks
performances in sweeps

two touchdowns; he
found the end zone on a
6-yard sweep in the first
quarter then had a 70-
yard punt return in the
second quarter. He also
had a first-half fumble
recovery. According to Oca, however,
Mabutas best play of the game was when
the free safety broke up a third-quarter pass
to force Half Moon Bay to punt in a crucial
turn of momentum to help South City hold
on for a 30-27 victory.

the Warriors four-set win

Tukuaoga totaled a
match-high 23 kills.
Tukuaoga also had 15

It was another big gainer
for the speedy running
back in a wild 46-30 vic-

Intrieri gained just eight
rushing yards in the first
half. But after Burlingame
squandered a 21-2 halftime lead, Intrieri
kicked it into gear to run for 185 yards on 17
carries and three touchdown runs. He also had
a touchdown reception in the first half to help
Burlingame to get off to a 6-0 start this sea-
son, including a 2-0 record in Peninsula
Athletic League Bay Division play.
Jo rdan Mi ms , Menl o - At hert o n
footbal l . A week after sophomore Stavro
Papadakis ran for a career-high 158 yards
against Burlingame, M-A turned to another
sophomore in Mims. Friday in the Bears
21-14 win over Sequoia, their first in
Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division

Beardsley threw for 193 yards in Fridays
win over Sequoia and DelRosso caught 109

tions, two of which were for touchdowns. It
is the second time DelRosso has reached
triple-digits this season after notching a

29 saves through three games at the first

Leland, where Serra fell 6-5 in a defensive
battle, with Olujic totaling 10 saves in the

Dons edged Woodside 19-13 in their
Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division

three of Aragons touchdowns. He connected
with three different receivers Kono
Filimoehala, Tyee Stokman and James
Fononga to help improve Aragons unde-
feated record to 6-0.
JR Hardy, Sacred Heart Prep foot-
bal l . The senior running back gashed Terra
Nova for 194 yards and two touchdowns on
19 carries in the Gators 49-28 win over the
Tigers Friday night, their first win over
Terra Nova since entering the Peninsula
Athletic League in 2008.
El i za Grover, Menl oAtherton vol -

improve its season record to 19-2.
Ben Burr-Ki rven, Sacred Heart Prep
footbal l . The University of Washington
commit made his 2014 season debut against
Terra Nova and what a debut it was. Playing
linebacker for most of the game, he had a pair
of sacks. Late in the fourth quarter, with the
Gators clinging to a 35-28 lead, Burr-Kirven
sealed the win, gaining 143 yards on just four
carries and scoring on runs of 47 and 80 yards.

to win the tournament, facing mostly small
countries where womens soccer is a low pri-
ority. Canada, the other North American
powerhouse, isnt participating because it
automatically qualifies for the World Cup as
the host nation.
As soon as we figure out how to play
against some of these teams that are going
to sit back and bunker against us, the tour-
nament will be over, Wambach said. It
doesnt even look pretty.
The loss eliminated Haiti, which put
together a valiant qualifying effort while
training in months-long spurts in Indiana.
The Haitians are 0-4 overall against the
U. S. , having lost 10-0 in 1991, 8-0 in
2004 and 5-0 in 2010.
Were amateur part-
timers competing
against full-time pros,
Haiti coach Shek
Borkowski said.
And, as if finding qual-
ity talent wasnt chal-
lenging enough,
Borkowski found his
players unprepared for
the big stage after their
humble preparation.
Coming here and staying in good hotels
and flying everywhere, for them it was just
like a big Christmas party, Borkowski
said. We lack that professional approach to
tournaments such as this.
The talent gap in the tournament is such
that there was considerable concern when
the U. S. managed only a 1-0 win over
Trinidad and Tobago in the opening match.
That was followed by a more comfortable 5-
0 rout of Guatemala. In each game and
again on Monday the Americans con-
trolled the action against an underdog that
packed the box and hoped to somehow score
on a counterattack.
The U. S. outshot the Haitians 20-1,
including 12-0 in shots on goal. Ashlyn
Harris, getting a rare start in place of Hope
Solo, got the shutout without having to
make a save just as Solo did against
The biggest hiccup along the way has
been the sprained ankle for forward Alex
Morgan against Guatemala, ruling her out
for the rest of the tournament.
World powers such as Japan or Germany
will give the U. S. plenty of stiff competi-
tion next summer. Meanwhile, its best
games might come when the Americans
starters play the American reserves. In fact,
both teams could probably qualify for the
World Cup.
In practice, when we play 11-a-side, its
two of the very best teams in the world
going at each other for 90 minutes,
Wambach said. Its actually really fun soc-
cer to watch. And so from a spectator point
of view, I feel bad (about the games in this
tournament) because I want people to enjoy
what they see.

SAN FRANCISCO Teenage soccer
players in San Francisco won an off-field
victory over the citys technology workers
after a videotaped confrontation gained
national attention.
Parks officials have agreed to stop allow-
ing adults to reserve a soccer field in the
Mission District neighborhood, a decision
that followed an August standoff pitting
young, longtime residents against workers
at online companies Dropbox and Airbnb,
The San Francisco Chronicle reported .
The soccer-field confrontation height-
ened some peoples resentment against the
Bay Areas well-paid tech workers, who are
seen as contributors to rising rents in San
Francisco. The creation of thousands of new
tech jobs in the Bay Area has helped give
San Francisco the fastest-growing income
gap between rich and poor in the country,
according to a 2013 report by the
Brookings Institution.
Imbroglio over S.F. field
Tuesday Oct. 21, 2014 THE DAILY JOURNAL
Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
July trade, is back in the World Series after
making it with Boston last year. Veteran new-
comer Tim Hudson is set to pitch in his first
Series at 39. Ryan Vogelsong is 3-0 with a
2.16 ERAin six postseason outings, includ-
ing a scoreless Series win in 2012. His only
October blip came in the NLCS this year
against St. Louis. The starters had a 2.40 ERA
in 10 playoff games.
Royal s: James Shields gave the staff an
experienced No. 1 starter when he was obtained
from Tampa Bay for several top prospects
before the 2013 season. Big Game James
will pitch the Series opener on 10 days rest,
hoping to improve his postseason numbers.
Hard-throwing rookie Yordano Ventura was 14-
10 with a 3.20 ERAthis season. As expected,
left-hander Jason Vargas has been a steady
presence. Veteran right-hander Jeremy Guthrie
has pitched only once all month, but he threw
five effective innings in the ALCS.
Edge: Gi ants , barel y, thanks to
Gi ants : Many faces are the same from San
Franciscos two title runs this decade, but a
couple of key roles have changed. Santiago
Casilla was promoted from setup man to clos-
er during the season when Sergio Romo strug-
gled. Romo is now setting up Casilla, on a
dominant roll dating to September.
Experienced southpaws Jeremy Affeldt and
Javier Lopez are very tough on lefties. Affeldt
has made 18 consecutive scoreless appear-
ances in the postseason, Casilla 17 and Lopez
15. Lincecum, an October relief weapon two
years ago, was bumped to the bullpen again
this year but has not pitched in the postsea-
son. Yusmeiro Petit provided a huge boost in
long relief during the playoffs.
Royal s: The nasty 1-2-3 punch of Kelvin
Herrera, Wade Davis and All-Star closer Greg
Holland (46/48 saves) in the final three innings
gave Kansas City a winning formula all season.
The playoffs were no different. Holland has six
saves and a 1.13 ERA in eight postseason
games. Davis is 2-0 with a 0.96 ERA, and
Herrera has a 1.08 mark in seven appearances.
All three have struck out 10. Jason Frasor also
is effective and 21-year-old lefty Brandon
Finnegan has showed poise out of the pen.
Edge: Royal s , barel y.
Gi ants : Buster Posey. Perhaps the closest
thing to Derek Jeter the West Coast has to
offer, Posey is chasing his third champi-
onship in five full seasons. Just about every-
thing he does on the field comes right out of a
textbook. The Royals running game presents
a challenge, though.
Royal s: Salvador Perez. A two-time All-
Star with a Gold Glove by age 24, Perez is
already a respected backstop who adds thump to
the lineup and keeps the clubhouse loose. He
batted only .118 during the playoffs without an
extra-base hit, but his 12th-inning single won
an ALwild-card thriller against Oakland.
Edge: Gi ants .
First Base
Gi ants: Brandon Belt. After missing 96
games this year because of a broken thumb and
concussion, Belt had the big hit that decided
the longest postseason game in major league
history. His 18th-inning homer sent San
Francisco to a Game 2 win at Washington in
the NLDivision Series. Steady defense, too.
Royal s : Eric Hosmer. Drafted third overall
in 2008, Hosmer is talented but inconsistent
so far. The 24-year-old cleanup hitter certain-
ly has taken to October baseball, batting
.448 in the playoffs with a crucial triple,
eight RBIs and two homers, including an
extra-inning shot against the Angels.
Edge: Royal s .
Second Base
Gi ants : Joe Panik. The 23-year-old rookie
rescued San Francisco at second base this sea-
son in the absence of injured Marco Scutaro, a
2012 postseason star. Paniks strength is a
short, compact swing that produces consis-
tently solid contact. The line-drive hitter bat-
ted .305 with one home run this year, then
went deep in the NLCS against St. Louis.
Royal s : Omar Infante. Signed to a
$30.25 million, four-year contract before
the season, Infante was brought in to be a
veteran solution at a trouble spot for Kansas
City. Infante went 5 for 15 (.333) in the
World Series for the Tigers two years ago,
when they were swept by San Francisco.
Edge: Even.
Gi ants : Brandon Crawford. Aplayer on the
rise, Crawford is blossoming into more than
just a slick fielder. He had 10 triples this sea-
son and became the first shortstop in history
to hit a postseason grand slam when he con-
nected in the NL wild-card game at Pittsburgh.
Royal s : Alcides Escobar. Acquired when
the Royals traded ace Zack Greinke to
Milwaukee in a fruitful deal, Escobar is wiry
and athletic with excellent range at shortstop.
He was 31 for 37 on stolen bases.
Edge: Royal s .
Third Base
Gi ants : Pablo Sandoval. The popular
Kung Fu Panda, a switch-hitting cleanup man,
is more dangerous from the left side of the
plate. Hes been at his best in October, reach-
ing base safely in a team-record 23 straight
postseason games while batting .375 with
six homers and 14 RBIs during that span. He
hit three homers in the 2012 World Series
opener on the way to MVP honors.
Royal s : Mike Moustakas. Drafted second
overall in 2007, Moose has yet to live up to
lofty expectations. But he and Hosmer form
the Kansas City cornerstones at the corners of
the diamond, and both have delivered in their
first trip to the postseason. After a brief demo-
tion to the minors this year, Moustakas redis-
covered his power stroke with four playoff
homers two in extra innings.
Edge: Gi ants .
Left Field
Gi ants : Travis Ishikawa. The most unlike-
ly star of this postseason, Ishikawa sent the
Giants to the World Series with the first home
run to end an NLCS in Game 5 against St.
Louis. He batted .385 with seven RBIs in the
series after beginning the season as
Pittsburghs opening-day first baseman.
Royal s : Alex Gordon. Drafted second
overall in 2005 out of Nebraska, Gordon is
probably the nearest Kansas City gets to hav-
ing an MVP contender. The converted third
baseman has three Gold Gloves, and his bril-
liant defense was on full display in the ALCS.
Edge: Royal s .
Center Field
Gi ants : Gregor Blanco. Filling in for
injured Angel Pagan, Blanco is a fine defender
who has struggled offensively in the leadoff
spot. Following a pretty solid season, he went
7 for 44 (.159) in the playoffs with one extra-
base hit. He does have a sharp eye, though.
Royal s : Lorenzo Cain. Asmooth glider in
the outfield, Cain batted .301 with 28 steals
this season and is just beginning to tap into
his prodigious talent. He made a string of sen-
sational playoff catches and hit .533 with five
runs during the ALCS to earn MVP honors.
Not bad for a guy who didnt even know the
rules or how to hold a bat when he first turned
out for organized baseball as a sophomore in
high school.
Edge: Royal s .
Right Field
Gi ants: Hunter Pence. The durable Pence gets
plenty of attention for his odd style and quirky
ways, but dont forget how good a player he is.
Pence signed a $90 million, five-year contract
last offseason to stay with San Francisco and
made his third All-Star team. Ahealth nut and
vocal leader for the tried-and-tested Giants, he
has played in 383 consecutive games.
Royal s: Nori Aoki. Apesky contact hitter,
Aoki has a .353 on-base percentage in three
major league seasons since arriving from
Japan. He was acquired last December in a trade
with Milwaukee and can become a free agent
after the World Series. Not much power this
season, but he can still run and play defense.

While Martin hasnt played this season, he
has ample experience at the position.
The 70th overall pick out of Southern
California, he played 38 games with 33
starts over three seasons with the Trojans.
Martin started all 13 games at center last year
while helping USC rush for 2,419 yards and
29 touchdowns, and earning First-Team All-
Pac-12 honors.
Hes exceled at the mental aspects
before and after he was injured. Ive been real
impressed with that, Harbaugh said. Even
when he knew he was hurt, knew he was going
to be out multiple weeks, he did not ease off in
terms of the classroom and the study. I think
that bodes well. Bright youngster and hes
champed at the bit to get back on the field and
didnt take the opportunity to let the injury
linger. So, good signs. Excited about his
progress and I look forward to good things.
Versatile offensive lineman Joe Loney also
could take some snaps at center if needed.
Asubdued Harbaugh hardly wanted to rehash
the ugly defeat in Denver. He was pleased
enough with special teams, but not much else
went well.
They outplayed us. Not going to go over
every single specific phase of each of those
two phases, he said. Theres going to be
some obvious, Why didnt this? Why didnt
that? Right, didnt.
Harbaugh himself planned to stick around
and work, along with his staff.
We have work to get done this week, he
said. Preparation for upcoming opponents
and self-scout and there will be players that
will come in and well be available to those

PITTSBURGH One dizzying sequence,
and the Pittsburgh Steelers were in complete
control against J.J. Watt and the Houston
Ben Roethlisberger passed for two touch-
downs and wide receiver Antonio Brown added
another on a gadget play during a decisive
surge late in the first half, helping the Steelers
rally for a 30-23 win over the mistake-prone
Texans on Monday night.
Pittsburgh (4-3) needed just over a minute to
turn a 10-point deficit into an 11-point lead as
the Texans self-destructed while losing their
third straight.
Roethlisberger finished with 265 yards
passing. LeVeon Bell racked up 145 yards of
total offense and rookie wide receiver
Martavis Bryant caught a momentum-swing-
ing touchdown pass in his first NFL start.
Arian Foster ran for 102 yards for Houston
(3-4), but just 29 over the final three quarters.
Ryan Fitzpatrick was 21 of 32 for 262 yards
with two touchdowns and an interception but
the Texans were undone by three turnovers.
Watt recovered a fumble and picked up his
third sack of the season but was neutralized for
most of the second half.
By then, the Steelers were on their way to
the win.
One frantic stretch turned the tide.
Pittsburgh was listless for the first 25 min-
utes, letting Foster and Fitzpatrick do whatev-
er they wanted as the Texans raced to a 13-0
lead that seemed larger.
A 44-yard Shaun Suisham field goal with
3:08 left in the half gave the Steelers a minor
Astrike from Roethlisberger to Bell provid-
ed a much larger one shortly after the 2-minute
warning. Roethlisberger hit the versatile back
for a 43-yard gain Pittsburghs longest
pass play of the season to move the ball to
the Houston 35.
Roethlisberger then hit Bryant, who strug-
gled staying healthy in the preseason and
spent the first six weeks on the inactive list,
with a beautiful rainbow Bryant caught at the
back of the end zone to make it 13-10 with
1:27 left.
The Steelers were just getting started.
Foster fumbled deep in Houston territory
two plays after Bryants score and the Steelers
recovered. Pittsburgh offensive coordinator
Todd Haley, who has faced heavy criticism for
his play-calling, went deep into his options
to help the Steelers take the lead.
On first-and-goal, Roethlisberger flipped
the ball to Brown, who was coming in
motion. The Pro Bowl wide receiver then spun
back around to his left and fired a strike to
Lance Moore in the end zone.
Houstons issues escalated on the next snap
when Fitzpatricks throw over the middle was
deflected into the arms of Pittsburgh defensive
end Brett Keisel. The 36-year-old took the sec-
ond pick of his career to the Houston 8.
Roethlisberger found Brown for a 6-yard
gain and then hit Bell who was uncovered
after going in motion for a touchdown.
The turnaround left Heinz Field euphoric and
the Texans and Watt stunned.
The Steelers methodically added on in the
second half, extending the lead to 14 points
on a pair of Suisham field goals before a late
scoring pass from Fitzpatrick to Foster pro-
vided the final margin.
The end played in stark contrast to the
beginning, when the Texans controlled the
line of scrimmage.
Steelers rally past Texans
By Josh Dubow
ALAMEDA As if the Oakland Raiders
defensive problems werent bad enough,
another injury will force them to use a third-
stringer at strong safety.
Usama Young left Sundays 24-13 loss to
Arizona with a significant injury to his left
knee. He underwent an MRI on Monday and
ESPN reported that he has a torn ACL and MCL
in the knee and will miss the rest of the season.
With starter Tyvon Branch already out for
the season with a broken foot, the Raiders
(0-6) once again are forced to turn back to
Brandian Ross, who struggled in that role
last year after Branch got hurt.
Ross was released after training camp this
summer and signed with Miami before
returning to Oakland late last month. After
spending time preparing at cornerback and
safety in 2013, he feels more prepared to
step in as a strong safety this season.
The Raiders are already dealing with a sea-
son-ending concussion for middle line-
backer Nick Roach and now have more
issues in the middle of their defense.
Ross will be counted on to help the
Raiders reverse their struggles on third-
down defense. Oakland has allowed oppo-
nents to convert 52. 9 percent of third-down
tries, a mark that would be the highest ever
recorded for an entire season.
The problems were particularly costly
against the Cardinals, who converted 9 of
15 third-down tries on Sunday.

The players understand the
importance of those (highly com-
petitive games), Bowen said.
Last week is a good example. We
played Mills, which we beat 20-
6, and played Bellarmine two
days later and won in overtime,
These guys need to play their
system at the level theyre capa-
ble of playing, no matter the
level of the opponent. Our goal is
to be YOUR best, not be THE
To that extent, when the
Knights are playing league
matches, Bowen tries his best to
make sure everyone on both
teams has a chance to play to
the best of their abilities. Against
Mills, Bowen said he constructed,
within his own team, two teams
that mixed and matched the
starters with the backups, which
then exchanged periods one
team played one period, the other
team played the next period.
Bowen sees no point in starting
his starters, building a huge lead
and then putting in the backups
in a game where no one benets.
I dont want to put (just) the
starters in, I want them (the back-
ups) to play with the starters. Part
of the challenge is making sure
[the matchups are] fullling for
every member of the team, while
being cognizant of the other
team, Bowen said. If handled
the right way, every single player
(on both teams) can come away
with something.
Bowen thinks playing the PAL
schedule is a nice counterbalance
to the tough non-league games, a
chance for his team to relax ever
so slightly. But dont think the
Knights are allowed to slack off.
They are still expected to play
their best, regardless of the oppo-
After playing a non-league
schedule where every single game
is a one-goal win or loss, playing
in the PAL is kind of refreshing,
giving some guys a chance to
play who dont get to play a lot,
Bowen said.
And Bowen said the caliber of
play in the PAL has denitely
grown over the years. While the
top two spots in the Bay
Division are occupied by Menlo
and Menlo-Atherton, places 3
through 7 are battles.
Its a very competitive league
in the sense that the battle for
third place, which is an automatic
CCS berth, is a big deal, Bowen
said. The level of play is up (in
the Bay Division). Carlmont
boys and girls have really
improved over the last couple of
years. I think Burlingame has had
some good players coming up.
Since 1997, Menlo has made 14
appearances in the CCS champi-
onship match and won titles in
2000, 2001, 2005, 2006 and
2010. But that is not necessarily
the Knights focus. With a coach
who doubles as a philosopher, lit-
erally, the Knights are always
more about the journey than the
destination. Bowen knows if he
coaches and his players play to
the best of all their abilities
every time out, the rest will take
care of itself.
Regardless of the opposition.
And leave it to Bowen to put it
all in perspective.
Were basically trying to
throw a ball into a oating rec-
tangle (the goal), Bowen said.

Tuesday Oct. 21, 2014 THE DAILY JOURNAL
By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar
WASHINGTON While Republicans in Congress shout,
Repeal Obamacare, GOP governors in many states have
quietly accepted the laws major Medicaid expansion. Even
if their party wins control of the Senate in the upcoming
elections, they just dont see the law going away.
Nine Republican governors have expanded Medicaid for
low-income people in their states, despite their own mis-
givings and adamant opposition from conservative legis-
lators. Three more governors are negotiating with the
Democratic administration in Washington.
Rather than demanding repeal, the governors generally
have sought federal concessions to make their decisions
more politically acceptable at home. That approach is in
sharp contrast to the anti-Obamacare fervor of their party
in Congress.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich doesnt think the Affordable Care
Act, with its Medicaid expansion provisions, will be
repealed, even if Republicans win a Senate majority and
consolidate their hold on the House in next months elec-
Thats not gonna happen, the Republican governor
told the Associated Press during a recent re-election cam-
paign swing.
He said that opposition to the Medicaid expansion was
really either political or ideological, adding, I dont
think that holds water against real flesh and blood and real
improvements in peoples lives.
Kasichs campaign office said Monday that the governor
remains opposed to the law. He has cast the Medicaid
expansion in Ohio as a moral choice to help the poor.
Whi l e repeal remai ns t he mant ra for many
Republicans in Washington, its up against some hard
As Kasich suggested, millions of people now have a tan-
gible benefit that would be taken away if the health law
were repealed. Any GOP replacement law would probably
have to give most of those people a way to remain insured,
and that would involve considerable taxpayer expense and
government regulation.
And even if Democrats lose their Senate majority,
President Barack Obama still has the power to veto legis-
lation. Republicans would have to muster a two-thirds
majority in both chambers of Congress to override that.
What we would anticipate is most likely to happen,
even with a Republican Senate, is wed have to work with-
in the confines of where we are, said Marty Carpenter,
spokesman for Republican Gov. Gary Herbert of Utah.
Herbert wants federal approval to deliver the Medicaid
expansion through private insurance companies as
some other GOP governors have done.
Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, another Republican seeking
re-election, says major changes are required to the health
care law. But he expects his states Medicaid expansion to
I think our system and our approach is working, and I
think other states are starting to look at our approach,
Branstad said.
In a recent debate with his Democratic election oppo-
nent, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of
Kentucky said that Obamas health care law must be pulled
up root and branch. But he hastened to add that the state
could somehow still keep its insurance marketplace, which
owes its existence to Obamas law.
Here are some of the hurdles that congressional
Republicans would face, even if they won big on Nov. 4.
A straightforward repeal bill could be filibustered in the
Senate, giving Democrats a chance to turn the tables on
Republicans who have used that tactic in recent years.
Democrats used budget rules to avoid a filibuster and
pass the law in 2010. That same budget process might be
used by Republicans to unravel the law. But they might not
kill all of it, only the parts with a direct impact on the fed-
eral budget, leaving an unworkable jumble of insurance
rules. And Obama could still veto it.
Forcing a government shutdown or a debt default to try
to get rid of the health law would probably backfire politi-
cally. Republican leaders want to avoid that, though some
conservative activists say nothing should be off the table.
Theres no consensus among Republicans over how to
replace Obamacare. Some believe a new plan would have to
come from the partys 2016 presidential nominee.
Still, the nation can expect repeal votes if Republicans
win the Senate, to fulfill campaign promises. What might
happen after an Obama veto is less clear.
Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo. , a member of the GOP lead-
ership, says Republicans will target unpopular provisions
and try to get some Democrats to join them.
Obviously, we are going to try to fully repeal the law,
said Barrasso. The reality is President Obama is going to
be in office, and we know how that is going to turn out if
we get a bill to his desk. If we cannot get a full repeal, we
will try to bring forth a number of bills that target the
worst parts of the law.
The bottom line: Former Utah Gov. Mike Leavitt, a
Republican who served as Health and Human Services sec-
retary for President George W. Bush, says Washington law-
makers and state governors are playing on different levels.
GOP governors dont see Obamacare going away
The nation can expect repeal votes if Republicans win the

City Council in support of such a proposal.
For 20 years, Broadway has sought to encour-
age retail by restricting certain types of busi-
nesses but, in recent years, the nature of retail
and the demands of the community has
changed, according to the letter. The city cur-
rently allows only 28 food establishments on
the street. Other limitations the city may
look at modifying include office use and
health service use on ground floors and park-
ing requirements.
Meanwhile, the BID is already working on
ways of improving the area using its own
means. In the last month, its gotten BID
member businesses, Gigis Boutique and
Lulus Nail Spa, to sign up for a $500 rebate
for redoing their awnings, said John
Kevranian, president of the district and owner
of Nuts for Candy on Broadway. This program
has been in place for a couple years and he is
trying to make landlords and businesses
aware of it. He also believes the meeting
Saturday went very well.
There was great feedback from the public,
now I think were going to be working
together to see if we could make some
changes from now on, he said.
There were discussions of adding parallel
parking, the city preventing big trucks from
coming through Broadway and making it
more pedestrian friendly. Broadway did get a
streetscape renewal a decade ago and this is
what resulted in the sidewalks being
scrunched to accommodate larger vehicles,
said another business owner, Gerald Weisl of
Weimax Wines & Spirits. Some people had
interesting ideas, others had pie in the sky
ideas, he said.
If you are going to have more food estab-
lishments, you have to accommodate long-
term parking and I think youd need more 24
minute meters to not choke off retail busi-
nesses such as ours, Weisl said. People
have all these ideas, but if the community
doesnt support them, you cant expect these
types of enterprises to exist here. Its great
people have an interest in the city, but its not
like Broadway is a blighted area.
He notes there are only a couple empty
storefronts, some of which are convenient
tax write-offs for landlords.
At the same time, the city has been con-
ducting an online Broadway Commercial
District Survey to compile feedback regarding
perceptions of the district. The survey was
also mailed out to business owners. As of Oct.
12, the city received 1, 000 completed
responses to the survey, according to a staff
report. Only four of the 1,000 respondents
indicated that they had taken the survey more
than once.
This represents an extraordinary response
when compared to past city surveys on vari-
ous topics, according to the report.
It really shows the communitys interest
and thoughtfulness, Brownrigg added.
Of the total surveyed, 77 percent of respon-
dents indicated that they visited the Broadway
Commercial District at least once per week.
Of the total surveyed, 38 percent of respon-
dents indicated that they eat out at a Broadway
restaurant at least once per week. Nine percent
reported visiting for work one or more times
per week, 56 percent reported for groceries or
food to take home, 5 percent for clothing
shopping, 38 percent for banking, 5 percent
for medical visits, 2 percent for visiting a
house of worship, 16 percent for entertain-
ment and 50 percent for restaurants visits.
Those surveyed definitely want to see
changes. Awhopping 60 percent of those sur-
veyed believe the district isnt thriving or
dynamic. The survey found 49 percent dis-
agree that the district has a good variety of
restaurants. Another result showed 55 percent
thought the district needs more office space.
Weaknesses of the district included needing a
greater variety of bar and restaurant options,
more major chain stores, cleaner and better
maintained storefronts, improved streetscape
and wider sidewalks. Other suggested
improvements included fewer nail salons, a
hardware store, more clothing store options,
improved parking, fewer vacancies, more
street fair and community activities,
increased pedestrian safety and more open-
space and family-friendly areas.
Those surveyed also indicated strengths of
the district, including its variety of restau-
rants, mom and pop stores, small town feel,
coffee shops serving as meeting places and
convenience and walkability.
Responses to the survey will continue to be
collected for a period of two weeks following
the Oct. 18 meeting to provide the opportuni-
ty for interested parties to continue to com-
ment and offer suggestions following partici-
pation in the meeting if so desired. The sur-

Nurses and health care staff pause for a moment of prayer during a rally in support of their colleagues Nina Pham and Amber
Vinson, who are now in treatment after contracting the Ebola virus, outside the Texas Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.
By Emily Schall
DALLAS Youngor Jallah spent
the last three weeks confined to her
small apartment with her children and
boyfriend, fearing they had contract-
ed the deadly Ebola virus from her
mothers fiance.
But with the household emerging
symptom-free from a 21-day incuba-
tion period, Jallahs family members
are now trying to resume their lives -
replacing the personal belongings
incinerated in a cleanup at her moth-
ers home, and overcoming the stig-
ma of the Ebola scare that has gripped
On Monday, Jallah beamed with
pride as she sent her children back to
school with clearance from the Dallas
County health department tucked into
their backpacks. Her mother emerged
from her own confinement and spent
the early afternoon looking for a new
place to live.
We were sitting here traumatized,
Jallah told the Associated Press on
Monday. We just thank God we never
came down with the virus.
The ci t y of Dal l as announced
Monday it is coordinating with a
local church and donors to provide
Jallahs mother, Louise Troh, with
funds to pay for six months of hous-
ing. Once she chooses a location,
nonprofits will assist the family with
furniture, linens and other household
items, the city said.
Trohs fiance, Thomas Eric Duncan,
was the first person diagnosed with
Ebola in the U. S. He died Oct. 8.
Health officials said Monday about
50 people have passed the incubation
period safely. Others who are still
being monitored include health care
workers who treated Duncan as well

Ebola fear, monitoring eases for some
Urgent-care clinics
ill-equipped to deal
with Ebola cases
By Julie Watson
A new concern over the spread of Ebola surfaced recently
when a Dallas County sheriffs deputy who searched the apart-
ment of the first patient to die from the virus in the U.S. start-
ed feeling ill and went to an urgent-care center.
The clinics popping up rapidly across the nation arent
designed to treat serious illnesses and are ill-equipped to deal
with suspected Ebola cases.
Doctors are urging patients to avoid smaller medical facili-
ties and head to emergency rooms if they think theyve been
exposed to the virus that has put a focus on weak spots in the
U.S. health care system.
Patients have a difficult time deciding where they need to
go for care but hospitals are best for serious problems, Dr.
William Gluckman said.
The Dallas County deputy was transferred to a hospital this
month where he tested negative for Ebola. Clinics, mean-
while, have rushed to prepare with new training manuals and
protective gear. But most lack essentials like isolation units,
said Gluckman of the Urgent Care Association of America,
which represents more than 2,600 of the nations 9,000
urgent-care centers.
Given the problems at the Dallas hospital where Thomas
Eric Duncan died and two nurses were diagnosed with the virus,
experts say an Ebola case at a clinic or smaller facility could
have been worse.
That would be an even less controlled situation, said Dr.
David Weber, a disease specialist with the University of North
Carolina. The likelihood for that is so remote that they may
never have thought about that.
Thats changed recently as the Urgent Care Association of
America sent emails to its roughly 6,400 members asking
them to send suspected Ebola cases to hospitals for treatment.
If someone has a fever, headache or other flu-like symptoms
and has been in an Ebola hot spot, clinics have been told to
contain that patient in a single room, call public health offi-
cials and contact a hospital for transportation as quickly as
possible, per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
guidelines. The CDC says Ebola isnt contagious until symp-
toms appear and isnt spread through the air; people catch it
by direct contact with a sick persons bodily fluids, such as
blood or vomit.
CDC Director Tom Frieden said last week that the agency is
bolstering training nationwide on how to respond to an Ebola
case, a pledge that came days after a man who had recently vis-
ited West Africa and was suffering from flu-like symptoms
briefly shut down an urgent care practice outside of Boston. He
was transported to a hospital where he tested negative for

foot building rich in history covers a
5, 000-square-foot site and is currently
occupied by the popular Kingfish
Restaurant, owner Ken Constantino
said. The entire structure is marked by
two large ornate towers, has a base-
ment and its construction was an
impressive undertaking, Constantino
Architecturally its significant and
its probably the most significant art
deco building in the entire county,
Constantino said. The entire exterior
of the building is handmade terra-cotta
tile. [The tiles] were actually casted
and made in San Francisco. It was
piece-by-piece assembled in San
Francisco and then dissembled and
then brought to San Mateo and con-
structed in [1931]. They wanted to
make sure all the tiles fit and the pieces
fit so they actually created a model, if
you will, and then brought it down in
Constantino said the building has
been in his family since the 1960s and
the entire $200, 000 revamp of the
elaborate and ornate art deco architec-
ture is vital to ensuring the historic
property remains, Constantino said.
You dont see this type of architec-
ture, unless you have to go to San
Francisco or maybe to Chicago or New
York or some older sections of Los
Angeles. So its unique in that regard.
The other interesting thing is weve
maintained the building really well and
about every 20 years weve done exte-
rior renovations to preserve the
integrity of the exterior of the build-
ing, Constantino said.
For the past six weeks, the specialty
conservation firm Architecture
Resources Group, based in San
Francisco, has been working on the B
Street side. This first stage will be
completed in two weeks and
Constantino said he anticipates work-
ing on the Second Avenue exterior
early next summer. The B Street por-
tion is the most subject to deteriora-
tion and it was vital the restoration be
done immediately, Constantino said.
Its important that, I believe for the
community, that buildings like this are
maintained and restored properly,
Constantino said. The other impor-
tant reason to do this is because the
tiles, because of the elements, breaks
down because of the UV light, rain and
the heat. So we restore the tiles, we
re-grout and repoint the tiles them-
selves, and then we put a waterproof
coating on the building.
When the glaze and grout on the
building cracks, moisture and biologi-
cal material can build up and further
damage the tiles, Constantino said.
Workers are now grinding down the
tiles and repainting them to match the
original 1930s aesthetics,
Constantino said.
So from the naked eye across the
street, when youre looking at the
building, you dont see the work that
theyve done. But a lot of that B Street
side was damaged from the elements,
Constantino said.
Constantino said his family-run
business makes a priority of investing
in the property and his father, who
bought the building in the 1960s and
died in 1978, unfortunately never got
to see the House of Merkel restoration
The building is named after its origi-
nal owners Carl and Cuna Merkel, who
opened a cigar store at the location in
1918 before buying the property and
building the current historic edifice in
1931. In the 1930s and 40s, the
House of Merkel served as a social cen-
ter for San Mateo drawing youth with
its soda fountain and eventually book-
makers discretely taking bets on hors-
es racing at Bay Meadows. The House
of Merkel is known to have even drawn
the attention of a police raid for book-
making at least once in the 1930s.
The building has housed a variety of
businesses such as a tailor shop, shoe
repair shop, Japanese restaurant and
two microbreweries the Red Bird
Brewing Company and Barley & Hops.
The House of Merkel received a
major interior renovation in 1994 and
Kingfish Restaurant moved in 2000,
Constantino said.
For many years before us, it was a
gathering place; and its still a gather-
ing place. Its still not only a promi-
nent building, its a prominent busi-
ness and a prominent location in
downtown, Constantino said. Its
been kind of an anchor on B Street for
a long, long time so I think thats the
other significant reason that its
important to our family to make sure
its maintained.

currently only letting communities use
whats known as Continuum of Care
funding to create either rapid rehous-
ing or permanent housing for the
chronically homeless.
Rapid rehousing is the policy of
moving a family or individual into
permanent house as quickly as possi-
ble by providing financial help, like a
security deposit, and other resources to
help them with self-sufficiency. In
other homeless service models, partic-
ipants often had to live in transitional
housing first.
Supervisor Carole Groom said she is
generally supportive of the pilot idea
Samaritan House and Shelter
Network do rapid rehousing quite suc-
cessfully and have some very good
results so I am in favor of it, Groom
If the Board of Supervisors agree at
Tuesday mornings meeting, the pilot
will be developed and brought back for
final consideration sometime in early
The proposal is just one of a six-step
approach that grew from a July study
session on homelessness in San
Mateo County. The county is eight
years into HOPE, its 10-year plan to
end homelessness, and officials called
the session to see how efforts are
going. The check-in concluded that the
county has made progress but, in an
area with high housing and living
costs, more is needed to get roofs over
peoples heads.
This morning, Housing Director Bill
Lowell and Human Services Agency
Director Iliana Rodriguez will also ask
supervisors to use Measure A sales tax
revenue for years three and four of the
San Mateo County Affordable Housing
Fund, look at land that could be used
for affordable housing units and poten-
tially develop an advocacy program.
Such a program could implement prac-
tices aimed at promoting and preserv-
ing affordable housing like rent con-
trol, housing impact fees and inclu-
sionary zoning.
Most of the proposals require
reports back and development during
the budget process. However, more
immediately, Lowell and Rodriguez
will ask the supervisors for $150, 000
to supplement the motel voucher fund
for homeless families. The HSA-funded
program is administered by InnVision
Shelter network and serves an average
of nine to 12 families per night. But
with motel costs increasing, the num-
ber of families served has declined
steadily over the past three years from
4, 441 in Fiscal year 2011-12 to 3, 972
in 2013-14 according to Lowell and
The average nightly rate charged
through the voucher program is $135
for the top eight motels willing to
housing the homeless and some say
they may stop accepting vouchers
because they can fill the space at the
market rate. Unless the county allo-
cates more funding, only nine families
will be served per night.
For longer term solutions, the coun-
tys real property department contin-
ues looking for sites county-owned
and otherwise for potential low-
income housing. Several have poten-
tial but are currently used at least par-
tially for county functions and have
constraints, according to a board
report. There is also small county-
owned parcel in Half Moon Bay that
wont work for a multi-family develop-
ment but might be swapped for a site
In addition to creating housing
options, county officials
also want to better under-
stand the population. The
county collects data on
demographics, locations and
needs but hasnt done an in-
depth review or analysis.
Earlier this month, the coun-
ty contracted with Focus
Strategies to assess the data
for a report expected in
November than can guide a
redesign of the HOPE plan.
A different research firm is
conducting a separate assess-
ment on the special needs of
homeless veterans. In San
Mateo County, veterans are
11 percent of the homeless
population based on the
2013 census.
The Board of Supervisors
meets 9 a. m. Tuesday, Oct.

53 Born as
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You can make positive
strides if you are not fearful and are willing to face
challenges head-on. Hesitation will cause you to miss
opportunities, so act quickly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Organization and
attention to detail will enable you to attain a lucrative
position. Your ability to make valuable contributions to
the workplace will be recognized and rewarded.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You are viewing
the world around you unrealistically. Listen to the
advice of those who know the score and are not
afraid to tell the truth.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Proceed with
caution when dealing with money, health or legal
matters. Dont get involved in other peoples
investment strategies. You will be the one held
responsible if something goes wrong.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Invest in the projects
you believe in. Positive changes can be made if you are
honest about your strengths and weaknesses. Finalize
deals that youve been pondering.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Compromise will
be necessary if you are to get a partnership back
on track. A quick response to negative issues will
soon put things right. Dont hold back; you need to
tell it like it is.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) If asked to defend a
friend, make sure that you have your facts in order so
that you can help his or her case without damaging
your own status or reputation.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Keep your
professional reputation intact. Someone is trying
to lead you astray. You must keep your cool if you
want to come out ahead.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Do something nice for a
friend, a relative yourself. Favorable solutions that will
alleviate your current worries will develop. Expand your
horizons by studying a fascinating subject.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Steer away from
troubles at home. Taking sides or getting caught
in someone elses argument will lead to an intense
no-win situation. Spend some time with an
objective friend.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Make the most of your
helpful nature. You can always be counted on to give
a little extra help where and when it is needed. Your
compassion will be appreciated.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Better opportunities
are available to you, so dont settle for less when
you can have more. Your talents are more valuable
than you realize. Give your all, and you will get the
results you are after.

tors State License Board. State law also
requires that contractors include their li-

in their advertisements that they are not
