San Mateo to convert its waste into fuel


City to be first to turn biogas to compressed natural gas at wastewater plant
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Most might not consider that


flushing a toilet or running a dishwasher could contribute to fueling
a vehicle. But such is the future for
thousands of local residents, as
San Mateo will break ground on
Californias first city-run biogas
conversion project to produce
compressed natural gas at its

wastewater treatment plant.


Officials will break ground
Friday, Dec. 11, on a nearly $5
million improvement that will
contribute to the citys sustainability goals by reducing its
dependency on gasoline thereby
reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
After receiving a $2.45 million
grant from the state, the city plans
to construct a digester that will

capture underutilized biogas,


which naturally occurs while treating wastewater, and turn it into
compressed natural gas that will
be used to fuel new city-owned
vehicles.
San Mateo is the first city in the
state to use this advanced technology at a wastewater treatment
plant, allowing it to produce the
biofuel equivalent of 500 gallons
of gasoline every day.

It takes gas created from the


wastewater
treatment
plant
process and it will convert it
through cleansing then compressing that gas into compressed natural gas that can be used in vehicles, said Public Works Director
Brad Underwood. Its exciting to
be on the leading edge in
California for this. We hope itll
turn into a great success and that
others can then utilize and build

off of and convert their own


digester gas to help other aspects
in their department and city.
Anticipating completion in
August, the project includes a distribution system that serves like a
pump at a traditional gas station,
Underwood said.
Typically, the plant just burns
off the biogas thats created as part

Tis the season to be with friends, spread

The fundraiser is for Bella Hung, 10, who
has acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Her family didnt even know about the
fundraiser or the special gofundme account
set up to assist them until just a few days
ago.

mother Vanessa Curry said.
Bella was diagnosed with the quickly moving blood cancer when she was 8 and went
through intensive chemotherapy treatments
but the cancer returned in April.
Bella hasnt attended Cabrillo Elementary
School in Pacifica since May and just spent
two months at Seattle Childrens Hospital
for a trial treatment.
She now needs a bone marrow transplant
but, because she is mixed race, finding a
donor was difficult.
Through the National Bone Marrow
Registry and the help of bethematch.org, a
single donor has been found who lives in
Beijing, China.
Bella will undergo the transplant after her
immune system has been completely wiped
away again.
She is careful about everything she touches to avoid getting sick.
The worst part of all she has to deal with is
spending long days in clinics with doctors
and nurses, she said.
She has made those visits a little more
pleasurable, however, by sneaking her pet
Chihuahua into the hospital.
Her dog Lily is now being certified as a
service dog so the two can be together all the
time.

U.S. launches trial of facial, eye scans on Mexican border


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN DIEGO The federal government on


Thursday began collecting facial and eye
scans of foreigners entering the U.S. at a busy
border crossing with Mexico, a first step in
one of its most ambitious efforts to track people who stay in the country illegally after
their visas expire.
Up to half of the people in the U.S. illegal-

ly are believed to have overstayed their visas,


but the absence of a checkout system has left
authorities with no way to identify them.
In a push to change that, Customs and
Border Protection began scanning foreigners
entering on foot at San Diegos Otay Mesa
port of entry. In February, it will start collecting the same information on foreigners walking into Mexico through the checkpoint.
The trial run, which lasts through June, will

help determine if authorities expand screening to foreigners at all land crossings on the
1,954-mile border with Mexico. Authorities
will look at the accuracy of the cameras.
Congress has long demanded biometric
screening such as fingerprints, facial images
or eye scans from people leaving the country,
but the task poses enormous financial and
logistical challenges, especially at land
crossings.

S.F. police chief urges stun


gun use after recent shooting

SAN FRANCISCO San Francisco is


one of only two of the nations largest
cities in the country that do not equip officers with stun guns, a situation the citys
police chief wants to change after police
fatally shot a knife-wielding stabbing suspect last week.
Police Chief Greg Suhr publicly renewed a
call Wednesday night to add the weapon to
his departments arsenal, exactly one week
after five officers shot and killed 26-yearold Mario Woods in the citys Bayview
neighborhood. The shooting was captured
on video and circulated widely online, fueling community protests and calls for the
chiefs resignation.
The police chief said the fatal shooting
could have been avoided if the responding
officers had been equipped with Taser stun
guns, which deliver 50,000 electrical volts

Storm that packs serious snow hits Sierra Nevada


By Scott Smith and Janie Har
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Its shaping up as the biggest snowstorm


to hit the Sierra mountains this
year, with wind gusts of up to
100-plus miles per hour and
Sierra Nevada ski resorts and
businesses bursting with joy.
The National Weather Service
said Thursday that it expects 1 to
2 feet of in the High Sierra and as
much as 3 feet on the highest
crests.
Dawn Johnson, a meteorologist in Reno, Nevada, said a second wave of the storm is expected Thursday night and could
bring another five to 10 inches
at Lake Tahoe and eight to 14
inches in higher elevations.
It has been the biggest storm
so far this season, said Idamis
Del Valle, a meteorologist with
the
weather
service
in
Sacramento, California.
Another storm is expected to
move in Saturday or Sunday,
bringing another two feet of
snow.
California needs all the snow
and rain it can get, given four
years of drought that have dried
up reservoirs and left trees
parched. Even a wet winter is not
expected to end the drought, but
the snow is good for business,
say Tahoe-area ski resorts, property managers and mom-and-pop
retailers.

A Caltrans snowplow clears Highway 88 in Woodford.


Its full-on winter out here,
said Jerry Bindel, general manager of Aston Lakeland Village
vacation condominiums in South
Lake Tahoe. This is great news
all the way around.
Rain fell overnight around
Tahoe, but Thursday morning
that turned to snow, dropping

more than six inches, Bindel


said. The storm adds to a snow
season that already started
strong.
In past years, guests at the
lakeside condominiums have had
to drive higher up in the mountains to take their children sledding. Not this year. Itll be more

like a walk than a drive, he said.


Trees lining the slopes at
Northstar California Resort in
Truckee are covered with snow,
and the ski resort expects a pummeling overnight. Everybody is
extremely happy about that,
spokeswoman Marcie Bradley
said.

She said the ski season is kicking off with conditions normally
seen mid-season. Its wall-towall, she said. Its not just a
little strip you can ski down.
Frozen rain and snow on roads
also meant officers spent
Thursday morning handling
spin-outs and other accidents,
said Officer Ruth Loehr of the
South Lake Tahoe area office.
With several major storms
coming through the area later
this week, Yosemite National
Park is closing Tioga Road for
the season. The road reopens
when weather conditions permit
in the spring.
Rain and high winds also
pounded parts of the San
Francisco Bay Area, prompting
warnings from the California
Highway Patrol and flood advisories along highways. There
also were high surf warnings.
Heavy rain in Sacramento early
Thursday sent a Fed Ex big rig
skidding out of control on
Interstate 5, killing the driver of
an oncoming pickup and
snarling traffic for several hours.
The CHP says the double-trailered truck appears to have hit
water and hydroplaned out of
control, the Sacramento Bee
reported.
In Southern California, commuters were warned of potentially dangerous driving conditions
on freeways after heavy fog
descended on the region.

Officials search for missed


red flags ahead of shootings
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The U.S. government appears not to have picked up on


extremist messages exchanged during
the online courtship two years ago
between the American-born man
accused in the California shootings
and his then-fiancie in Pakistan, federal officials told Congress during
closed-door briefings on Capitol Hill
on Thursday.
American officials say Syed Rizwan
Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik,
discussed martyrdom and jihad online
as early as 2013. But the couple never
surfaced on law enforcements radar

and Malik was able to enter the U.S. on


a fiancie visa last year despite having
professed radical views online.
Meanwhile, the investigation into
the shootings that left 14 dead last
week continued in San Bernardino,
where an FBI dive team searched a
small, urban lake about 3 miles north
of the shooting site.
David Bowdich, chief of the FBIs
Los Angeles office, said investigative
leads indicated the shooters had been
in the area the day of the massacre and
said the search of the lake could take
days. He declined to discuss what time
of day the leads indicated they may
have been there. He also declined to

specify what the divers were looking


for.
FBI Director James Comey and other
senior American officials briefed members of Congress, who are concerned
red flags may have been missed in the
last two years.
Everyones asking the same questions about how it is that law enforcement didnt know, or intelligence officials didnt know that they could
have flown under the radar and nothing
gave an indication that they were a
threat, said Rep. Jim Langevin, a
Rhode island Democrat and member of
the House Homeland Security
Committee.

JONESBORO, Ark. An armed man who had posted on


Facebook that he was homicidal drove onto the Arkansas
State University campus Thursday,
sparking a lockdown before police took
him into custody without any shots
fired, university and police officials
said.
Jonesboro Police Chief Rick Elliott
said Brad Kenneth Bartelt, 47, of
Jonesboro, had a 12-gauge shotgun and
containers of gasoline and propane with
Brad Bartelt him when he drove his truck onto a plaza
east of the student union. University
spokesman Bill Smith said the man, once a student at a
remote campus, was taken into custody about an hour after
the incident began.
The university lifted a lockdown for most of the campus,
but still canceled final exams set for Thursday afternoon and
evening. Campus activities are to resume Friday and a graduation ceremony set for Saturday will go on.
Campus police chief Randy Martin said Bartelt had formerly attended classes at Arkansas States Newport campus,
45 miles away. In a Facebook post Wednesday, Bartelt had
complained about a recent decision in a Social Security
case. Police didnt offer details about the case.
Elliott said at a Thursday news conference that Bartelt
never pointed a weapon toward officers.
He was pointing the gun at himself. He wanted to do
harm to himself, Elliott said.
The chief said that, when he arrived, Bartelt was sitting in
the truck with his foot out the window and the shotgun visible, yelling something inaudible. He said from time-totime Bartelt would get out of the truck and slosh gasoline
on the truck or hold the shotgun to his chin.
Elliott said investigators were still interviewing Bartelt
to learn more about his reasons and he would be screened by
mental health professionals.

Trump cancels Israel visit after


controversies over comments
JERUSALEM Donald Trump on
Thursday called off a planned December trip
to Israel, shelving what was shaping up to
be an awkward visit by the Republican presidential front-runner following comments
that managed to offend Muslims and Jews
alike.
Dozens of Israeli lawmakers had called for
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to cancel the Dec. 28 meeting with Trump. The
prime minister, wary of being seen as
endorsing Trumps positions despite his
own Republican leanings, had given only
guarded remarks, saying he would honor a
previously scheduled meeting but at the
same time rejecting Trumps calls to ban
Muslims from entering the United States.

Around the world


Trump announced his
decision on his Twitter
feed, saying he would
reschedule at a later date
after I become President
of the U.S.
Trump told Fox News
there were many reasons
Donald Trump he decided to hold off on a
trip, among them that he
didnt want to put Netanyahu in a bind.
In fact, I did a campaign ad for him, and
hes a good man, but I didnt want to put him
under pressure, Trump said. I also did it
because Im in the midst of a powerful campaign thats going very well.

President signs education law


rewrite shifting power to states
By Jennifer C. Kerr
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Calling it a Christmas


miracle, President Barack Obama signed a
sweeping overhaul of the No Child Left
Behind education law on Thursday, ushering
in a new approach to accountability, teacher
evaluations and the way the most poorly
performing schools are pushed to improve.
Joined by lawmakers, students and teachers in a White House auditorium, Obama
praised the George W. Bush-era No Child
Left Behind for having the right goals. He
said that in practice, it fell short or applied
a cookie-cutter approach that failed to produce desired results. Under the new law, the
federal government will shift more decision-making powers back to states.
With this bill, we reaffirm that fundamentally American ideal that every child
regardless of race, gender, background, zip
code deserves the chance to make out of
their lives what they want, Obama said.
This is a big step in the right direction.
The overhaul ends more than a decade of
what critics have derided as one-size-fits-all
federal policies dictating accountability and
improvement for the nations 100,000 or so

public schools. But one key feature


remains: Students will still take federally
required statewide reading and math exams.
Still, the new law encourages states to limit
the time students spend on testing and
diminishes the high stakes for underperforming schools.
The long-awaited bill to replace the 2002
law easily passed the Senate on Wednesday
and the House last week, in a rare example of
the Republican-controlled Congress and
Obama finding common ground on major
legislation. Obama held it up as an example of how bipartisanship should work,
noting that opposing sides had compromised to reach a deal.
Thats something that you dont always
see here in Washington, Obama said.
There wasnt a lot of grandstanding, a lot
of posturing, just a lot of good, hard work.
Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., who chairs the
Houses education panel, said under the new
approach, American classrooms will no
longer be micromanaged by the Education
Department in Washington.
Instead, parents, teachers, and state and
local education leaders will regain control
of their schools, said Kline, part of the
bipartisan quartet that spearheaded the bill.

WASHINGTON The men in the U.S.


militarys most dangerous jobs care little
about political correctness or gender equality. And they have a message for their political leadership.
When they are fighting in the shadows or
bleeding on the battlefield, women have no
place on their teams.
In blunt and, at times, profanity-laced
answers to a voluntary survey conducted by
the Rand Corp. , more than 7, 600 of
Americas special operations forces spoke
with nearly one voice. Allowing women to
serve in Navy SEAL, Army Delta or other
commando units could hurt their effectiveness and lower the standards, and it may
drive men away from the dangerous posts.
An overwhelming majority of those who
agreed to respond to the RAND survey said
they believe women dont have the physical
strength or mental toughness to do the grueling jobs.
Some of the broader conclusions of the
survey, taken from May through July 2014,
were disclosed by the Associated Press earlier this year, but the detailed results and comments written by respondents had not been
released.

Around the nation


Shelters for immigrant children
to open in Texas and California
DALLAS A new spike in unaccompanied Central American minors crossing illegally into the United States is pushing federal officials to open shelters in Texas and
California.
A total of 10,588 unaccompanied children
crossed the U.S.-Mexico border in October
and November, more than double the 5,129
who crossed during the same two months
last year, according to the U.S. Border
Patrol. The number of family members
crossing together has nearly tripled, to
12,505.
Increasing gang violence is pushing people out of Central America, said Maureen
Meyer, a senior associate for Mexico and
migrant rights at the Washington Office on
Latin America.
We need to look at this as much more a
refugee situation, she said. Migrating
through Mexico and across the U.S. border
is very dangerous, but the level of desperation in their home countries is making
families decide its worth the risk, she
said.

U.S. keeps wraps on new


commando force for Iraq T
By Robert Burns
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The commando force


that President Barack Obama is dispatching
to Iraq to conduct clandestine raids against
the Islamic State group does not fit neatly
into a picture of the U.S. military strategy
for defeating the extremist army.
Even the name specialized expeditionary targeting force is a bit of a riddle.
The main point is that the force is intended to ratchet up pressure on the Islamic State
by using a small group of special operations
troops possibly fewer than 100 to
more aggressively use intelligence information, to include capturing and killing the
groups leaders. In theory, this would generate even more and better intelligence, feed-

ing what the military calls a virtuous


cycle of intelligence-driven air and ground
operations.
It will be combat, but on a relatively
small scale. Obama remains opposed to
major U.S. ground combat in Iraq or Syria.
Several weeks ago the administration said it
would send up to 50 special operations
troops to Syria as trainers and advisers.
The Pentagon has been spare in its
description of this new commando force in
Iraq. It has not even said when it will
deploy.
Offered a chance by the Senate Armed
Services Committee on Wednesday to
expand on the Pentagons cryptic outline of
the forces makeup and mission, Defense
Secretary Ash Carter demurred. In fact he
said less about it than when he announced
the move a week ago.

VW began working on cheat


in 2005 to crack U.S. market
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WOLFSBURG, Germany A small


group of Volkswagen engineers began
working as early as 2005 on emissions
cheating software after they were unable to
find a technical solution to U.S. emissions
controls as the automaker pushed into the
North American market, executives said
Thursday.

The company in September admitted to


have cheated on U.S. diesel emissions tests
with the help of software installed in
engines. The software was built into 11 million cars globally, about 500,000 of which
in the U.S., from 2009 to 2015.
It has so far confirmed to have cheated
only on the U.S. tests, which are more rigorous than European ones for the polluting
emission nitrogen oxide.

Paris climate talks showcase the California Dream


By Jackie Speier

eijing issued its rst red alert


for smog this week. The air
was so dangerous that
schools, business and roads had to
shut down. Beijings terrible air,
which is caused by dirty coal-red
power plants and out-of-control automobile emissions, is linked to
appalling health problems such as
stunted lungs in children, asthma, cardiovascular disease and even toxic
mercury levels in seafood. As the
Paris climate talks conclude, Im
reminded that in the 1970s,
California narrowly avoided this fate.
Fortunately, instead of pretending
that smog simply didnt exist or wasnt harmful (as climate deniers do
today) we Californians faced our air
quality challenges head-on. We
worked together and used every tool at
our disposal to make sure that even
the biggest cities had healthy, breathable air. We set strict emissions standards, created vehicle smog tests, and
installed catalytic converters. This
smart investment paid off and rewarded us with a thriving economy, clean,
locally-made renewable energy and
some of the worlds highest living
standards. Improved energy efciency
alone has saved Californians an estimated $75 billion since the 1970s.
We can even see the results in
improved childrens health a 20year study showed that children from
2007 to 2011 have improved lung
development and better lung function

than children born


in the 1990s.
The Paris climate
talks are showcasing the power of
the California
Dream that we
dont have to
choose between a
thriving economy
and a healthy environment. Our foresight in investing in a healthy climate is now paying off in technology
that the whole world wants, which is
creating jobs right here in the Bay
Area. We lead the nation in reducing
emissions, developing clean energy
and ensuring that businesses cant
dump emissions in the air without
paying a fee and we do it all while
continuing to outpace the nation in
projected job growth over the next
ve years. Congress may have its
head in the sand but corporate
America gets it. At the Paris climate
talks, investors including Facebooks
Mark Zuckerberg, Virgin Groups
Richard Branson, and the University
of California pledged $2 billion to
bring clean energy innovations into
the marketplace. In the Bay Area
alone, smart grid energy technology
accounted for over 20,000 jobs.
As good as we are, a warming climate still can damage our health. For
example, an emerging climate-related
health threat in both California and
the world at large is an increase in
insect-borne diseases. Warming temperatures mean that mosquitoes and
ticks are active for more of the year,

Guest
perspective
and that the viruses carried by these
pests like West Nile virus, Lyme
disease, dengue fever and chikungunya multiply faster. Invasive yellow
fever mosquitoes, which can carry
dengue fever and chikungunya, have
been found here in San Mateo County.
It may not be coincidence that in
2014, the warmest year on record,
California had record numbers of West
Nile virus infections and fatalities.
The California Dream is about job
creation and our moral responsibility
to be good stewards of the Earth, leaving a livable, healthy world for our
children. They deserve the same
pleasures we have: breathing clean air
among the redwoods in Memorial or
Sam McDonald Park, eating delicious
local salmon and Dungeness crab in
Half Moon Bay, and just sitting and
watching the fog pour over the
coastal hills. We benet from the
foresightedness of the Californians
that came before us, whose hard work
gave us a thriving economy without
sacricing a healthy environment.
Lets make sure our children and
grandchildren will say the same of us.

Letters to the editor


Become the good guys SPI
Editor,
I want to thank the San Mateo
Planning Commission, especially the
chair, Mr. Dreschler for running a
smooth, peaceful meeting Tuesday
night despite the high emotions that
lled City Hall (Planning
Commission says preserve ice rink
in the Dec. 9 edition of the Daily
Journal). I felt sorry for the commissioners and staff for having to stay so
late, but they were all very patient
and understanding. I guess I still
dont understand why the owners
dont see the big picture. Obviously,
there is a huge demand for the ice
rink, not just from San Mateo residents but from people throughout the
whole Bay Area. Tuesday night, it was
suggested to SPI that the ice rink be
expanded to help it be more successful. Even if the ice rink reopens and
doesnt bring in the huge revenue
hoped for (which I cant imagine it
wouldnt) the number of outside
shoppers it would draw to the exist-

use the ploy of loss leaders to
attract shoppers to their stores knowing that they will buy other items

Editor,
Having grown up in Missouri, I can
appreciate a good skate as much as
anyone else, and I empathize with all
the heartfelt writers of letters protesting the closure of the Bridgepointe
ice rink. I certainly agree that we
dont need more retail establishments
and that there are many community
benets associated with the ice rink
from socializing to exercising.

A few bricks in
our wall of debt
J
ust last month, the California Legislative
Analysts Office reported some fairly rosy numbers for the states budget picture in the coming

years.
The LAO reported estimates that showed the state
would end the current fiscal year this summer with $3. 5
billion more than lawmakers anticipated when they
passed the budget last summer. It also showed that the
state would have reserves of $11. 5 billion in June 2017
if the state Legislature and
governor didnt add any more
programs that cost money.
Thats good news, right?
Happy days are here again? In
Sacramento, any extra money
is good particularly after
so many years of cutting.
Proposition 30 passed in
2012 and the main part of it,
the quarter-cent sales tax
increase, is set to expire at
the end of next year. The prevailing thought that this new
anticipated surplus might put
the kibosh on any plans to
extend it, and there are a couple of nascent efforts. Both
would extend the other portion of the Proposition 30
taxes aimed at upper income earners that is set to expire
in 2018 but allow the quarter-cent sales tax to expire in
2016. Its a matter of time before a group, or multiple
groups, take aim at extending the sales tax as well.
After all, California has many interest groups that need
tending. But if the state is doing so well, will voters
take any interest in extending the taxes for whatever
good reason?
Lets take a little air out of that thought balloon.
Forgotten in this discussion is the states wall of debt
it accrued over the last 10 or 15 years. Spawned in 2002
at the foot of the dot-com crash, California has been
borrowing its way to a palatable balance sheet ever
since. Some of that debt, originally allowed through
Proposition 57 in 2003, has been retired much earlier
than anticipated, but much of it still lingers like a bad
party guest you know, he who opens the 21-year-old
Macallan and mixes it with Coca-Cola bad. Even with
last years passage of Proposition 2, which established
a rainy-day fund and a public school reserve system,
there is still much left of the states wall of debt as
coined by the governor after he took office in 2011.
In fact, the states own adopted 2015-16 budget
shows that Proposition 2 allowed for the state to put
away a total of $1. 85 billion toward its debts and liabilities. Sounds pretty good right? Yes, until you consider that the outstanding amount at the start of the
2015-16 budget was about $218 billion. That includes
loans from special funds and other borrowing, state
retirement liabilities and UC retirement liabilities.
Certainly nothing to sniff at, and certainly something
to worry over.
The fact of the matter is that the state, thats you and
me, has a long long way to go before it can easily
climb over that wall of debt and find itself on a sustainable fiscal path. And just to be clear, Im not saying
there should or should not be an extension of
Proposition 30, either the sales tax component or the
income tax component. Its just one more factor in the
states budget situation. And back to the original data
points, while $3. 5 billion surplus is good, and much
better than a deficit of that amount or higher, it is merely a brick in that wall of debt. And that $11. 5 billion
expected in June 2017 is just a few bricks that is, of
course, if all of it goes to the states debts and liabilities and the stock market and the economy stays stable
through that time.
Now keep that in mind when the governor makes his
January budget proposal and it doesnt include any more
money for additional programs. We may be better off
than where we were after the dot-com crash and during
the Great Recession, but we still are feeling the effects
of a decade of papering over our financial problems and
mortgaging our future. As we head into that future, its
important to understand what we owe in addition to
whats coming in.

NEW YORK Investors took a


chance on some beaten-down shares
on Thursday, helping the U.S. stock
market to its first gain in four days.
The gain was modest, but broad,
with eight of the 10 industry sectors
of the Standard and Poors 500 index
ending higher. Drillers and other energy companies, down sharply in previous days, climbed 0.6 percent, much
more than the rest of the market.
Among individual stocks, Chevron
rose nearly 2 percent.
Some suppliers of raw materials
posted gains, too. Aluminum giant
Alcoa and miner Freeport-McMoRan
each rose 5 percent.
The climb came despite a continuing
slump in the price of commodities that
has been rattling markets all year.
Benchmark U. S. crude oil fell to
another seven-year low.
The Dow Jones industrial average
climbed 82.45 points, or 0.5 percent,
to 17,574.75. The S&P 500 index
rose 4.61 points, or 0.2 percent, to
2, 052. 23. The Nasdaq composite
increased 22.31 points, or 0.4 percent, to 5,045.17.
Natural gas and coal producer
Consol Energy jumped 10 percent. Its
still the biggest loser in the S&P 500

this year, however, down 78 percent.


In economic news, applications for
unemployment benefits in the U.S.
rose last week, but the number of
Americans seeking aid remains close
to historic lows. The report comes a
week before the Federal Reserve is
expected to raise interest rates for the
first time in nine years. That would
signal the central bank is confident
the economy is strong enough to
withstand higher borrowing costs.
There is a fear over the market.
China is slowing, emerging markets
are slowing, said James Dunigan,
chief investment strategist at PNC
Wealth Management. But if the Fed
can say were comfortable with U.S.
employment and economic growth,
that will be a positive.
The price of crude oil fell 40 cents,
or 1 percent, to $36.76 a barrel in New
York. Oil is trading at its lowest level
since early 2009.
The upside to lower oil is that consumers save money at the gas pump,
giving them more money to spend at
stores and elsewhere. But that boost
hasnt helped much yet.
You just dont have anything to
show in retail sales or consumer
spending, said James Paulsen, chief
investment strategist at Wells Capital
Management. Where is the stimulus
from lower oil?

New rule: Truck drivers must


electronically record hours
By Joan Lowy
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON An estimated 3
million commercial truck and bus drivers must electronically record their
hours behind the wheel under a new
government rule aimed at enforcing
regulations designed to prevent
fatigue.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety
Administration released the longawaited rule on Thursday.
Drivers have been required to keep
paper logs of their hours dating back
to 1938, but accident investigators
and safety advocates have long complained that its easy to change the
logs or keep two different sets of
records to evade restrictions on hours.
Electronic logging devices automatically record driving time by monitoring engine hours, vehicle movement,
miles driven, and location information.
This automated technology not
only brings logging records into the
modern age, it also allows roadside
safety inspectors to unmask violations of federal law that put lives at

risk,
Transportation
Secretary
Anthony Foxx said.
Efforts to require electronic logs that
are more difficult to tamper with have
been opposed by drivers who own
their truck or small fleets of trucks.
The drivers say the companies that
hire them to haul freight will be able to
access the electronic logs and pressure
drivers who havent reached their limit
of legally-allowed hours to stay on the
road even if they want to rest.
The Owner-Operator Independent
Drivers Association, which sued the
safety administration to block the
rule, says on its website that it questions the need for truckers to spend
money on an unproven technology
that is no more effective than paper
logs when it comes to safety and
hours-of-service compliance.
The safety administration estimates
the electronic devices will provide a
net savings of $1 billion a year, mostly through paperwork reductions. It
also estimate about 26 lives will be
saved and 562 injuries prevented each
year. The rule also contains procedural
and technical provisions designed to
protect commercial truck and bus driv-

ers from harassment resulting from


information generated by the devices,
the agency said.
The rule sets performance and design
requirements for the devices. It also
exempts from the requirements tow
truck drivers, drivers who use time
cards to record their hours and trucks
and buses older than model year 2000.
Drivers living in Canada and Mexico
that operate on U.S. roads will also be
required to use the devices.
This regulation will change the
trucking industry for the better forever, said Bill Graves, president of the
American Trucking Associations,
which represents trucking companies.
The rule goes into effect in 60 days,
and gives companies two years after
that to start using the devices.
Companies which have previously
installed recording devices that meet
current standards but dont meet
requirements of the new rule can continue to use them for four years. The
rule permits the use of smart phones
and other wireless devices for recording driving hours so long as they satisfy technical specifications and are
approved by the agency.

Lone profitable ACA insurance co-op losing millions


By Tom Murphy
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The lone health insurance cooperative to make money last year on the
Affordable Care Acts public insurance
exchanges is now losing millions and
suspending individual enrollment for
2016. Maines Community Health
Options lost more than $17 million in
the first nine months of this year, after
making $10.9 million in the same period last year. A spokesman said higherthan-expected medical costs have hurt
the cooperative.
The announcement casts further doubt
on the future of the cooperatives, small
nonprofit insurers devised during the
ACAs creation to inject competition in
insurance markets. These co-ops immediately struggled to build their busi-

nesses. A dozen of the 23 created have


already folded.
An Associated Press review of financial statements from 10 of the 11 surviving co-ops shows that they lost, on
average, more than $21 million in the
first nine months of this year. Those
losses range from $3.9 million reported by Marylands Evergreen Health
Cooperative to $50.7 million booked
by Land of Lincoln Mutual Health
Insurance Co. in Illinois.
Clearly the remaining health care
co-ops are in dire circumstances, said
Robert Laszewski, a health care consultant and former insurance executive
who has been a frequent critic of the
Affordable Care Act. I dont know how
any of them can survive another year.
The state-based co-ops were seen as a
fallback option by liberals who initial-

ly wanted a government-run insurer to


compete with for-profit companies that
control the U.S. commercial coverage
market.
The cooperatives, like other health
insurers, have been hit by soaring medical and prescription drug costs. Plus
theyve had to spend money building a
network of care providers, negotiating
rates with them and then marketing
their plans to customers. They have
also received considerably less financial support than they expected from a
federal government program designed
to support insurers as the exchanges
got under way.
It is probably impossible for a startup in the health insurance space to
make any significant money in the first
couple years, said Standard & Poors
analyst Deep Banerjee.

Among other stocks making big


moves, Mens Wearhouse plunged
$3.12, or 17 percent, to $15.27 after
reporting earnings per share that were
half what financial analysts expected,
according to FactSet. The struggling
clothes chain is down 65 percent since
the start of 2015.
First Solar dropped $4.50, or nearly
eight percent, to $54. 35 after the
solar energy company released earnings and a forecast that disappointed
investors.
U.S. government bond prices fell
slightly. The yield on the 10-year
Treasury note rose to 2.23 percent
from 2.21 percent late Wednesday. The
dollar rose to 121.62 yen from 121.19
yen. The euro fell to $1.0936 from
$1.1028.
Precious and industrial metals
futures closed mostly lower. Gold
edged down $4.50 to $1,072 an ounce,
silver lost eight cents to $14.11 an
ounce and copper was up less than a
penny at $2.07 a pound.
Brent crude, the international
benchmark, fell 38 cents, or 0.9 percent, to $39.73 a barrel in London.
In other trading of energy futures in
New York, wholesale gasoline rose
4.9 cents to $1.28 a gallon, heating
oil lost 1.4 cents to $1.225 a gallon
and natural gas fell 4. 7 cents to
$2.105 per 1,000 cubic feet.

Wal-Mart to launch own mobile pay system
NEW YORK The mobile payment wars are heating up.
Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the worlds largest retailer, said its
launching its own mobile payment system that will allow
shoppers to pay with any major credit or debit card or its
own store gift card through its existing smartphone app at
the cash register.
It started testing the new payment feature Thursday at its
stores in the Bentonville, Arkansas area, where the retailer
is based. It plans to launch the payment system called
Walmart Pay in all 4,500-plus U.S. stores in early next
year.
Its part of Wal-Marts overall mobile strategy to making
shopping easier and faster, but the launch is the latest salvo
in the battle for mobile payments thats in the early stages.
Wal-Mart has moved into the field as Apples one-year-old
tap-and-pay system is being expanded to other merchants
like Best Buy and KFC and several months after Google
launched the Android Pay mobile wallet app and Samsung
came out with Samsung Pay. Theyre all trying to get a
piece of what could be a very lucrative business, but none of
them have cracked the market so far.
The move signals that Walmart believes its best to build
its own system to better serve its customers, even as it
backs a retail industrywide mobile payment program that is
in test phase.

SpaceX launches may resume


Dec. 19, six months after accident
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. SpaceX says its close to
launching rockets again six months after an accident.
Chief executive Elon Musk announced via Twitter on
Thursday a rocket test-firing for next Wednesday in Florida.
A satellite launch for Orbcomm could come three days later
Dec. 19th.
SpaceX has been stuck on Earth since June, when a broken strut doomed its Falcon rocket during liftoff. The accident left NASA without a viable U.S. supplier for the
International Space Station. NASAs other commercial
shipper, Orbital ATK, finally made a delivery Wednesday,
but had to use another companys rocket.
SpaceX hopes to resume supply runs next month.
In the meantime, SpaceX will try again to land its firststage booster, possibly back at Cape Canaveral Air Force
Station. Barge landing attempts have failed.

The Crystal Springs girls soccer team opened


the season with a flurry of goals, scoring 13
goals over its first two games.
The Gryphons were brought down to earth by
Terra Nova Tuesday, however, as the Tigers
handed the Gryphons a 5-1 defeat.
Thursday, Crystal Springs returned home and
took out its frustration on an outmatched
Summit Prep squad, scoring six times in the first
half and eventually posting a 9-0 win.
I think we all wanted some redemption, said
Crystal Springs wing Megan Duncanson. [The
loss to Terra Nova] was a shock.
Duncanson played like she was on a mission.
The junior scored twice and assisted on a third,
but she easily could have scored two or three
more times. Three times she hammered shots
that were saved, she crashed another shot off the
post and yet another off the crossbar.
She was firing today, said Crystal Springs
coach Michael Flynn. In order for this team to
be successful, she has to be on her game. She
was crushing the ball [Thursday]. Shes going to
be our go-to play this year.
As has been the case for the last several seasons, the Gryphons have one of the most potent
offenses on the Peninsula. Junior midfielder EV
Nora will be the one tasked to distributing the
ball to her strikers and she has plenty from
whom to choose. In addition to Duncanson, the
Gryphons have a trio of freshmen who will factor into the offense. Tess Bosley found the back
of the net once, as did Sophie Murphy.
The big difference maker, however, will be
Jayla Aldridge, who plays both striker and midfield. She scored two goals in her first two
games and, after being shut out by Terra Nova,
added a hat trick Thursday.
She knows what shes doing, Flynn said of
Aldridge. She has really good vision.
Yet with all the firepower the Gryphons possess, it has not translated into postseason success. Playing in the West Bay Athletic Leagues

BERKELEY California agreed to a twoyear contract extension with coach Sonny


Dykes on Thursday that will increase his
pay immediately and keep him locked up
through the 2019 season.
Dykes had two years remaining on his
original five-year deal
and both sides had been
looking to extend it after
he helped lead the Golden
Bears to their first bowl
game since 2011.
Turning around a program is not an easy task
and in three years, Sonny
and his staff have been
Sonny Dykes instrumental in re-establishing a strong culture for our football program, athletic director Michael Williams
said. Our expectations at Cal are high and
we are confident that Sonny will have our
program fighting consistently for a Pac-12
title, a major bowl berth and inclusion in
the national football conversation.
Dykes will get a raise from approximately $2 million a year which was the lowest salary for a head football coach in the
Pac-12 to $2.825 million per year for
the next four seasons. The new salary ranks
in the middle of the conference, according
to a USA Today database.
The contract also includes a $3 million
annual salary pool for assistant coaches
and will roll over one year for each season
that he wins seven regular-season games
and the team has an annual Academic
Progress Rate score of 980 or higher.
The terms of this extension demonstrate
clearly the commitment from everyone
involved to build a championship program

Browns Whitner credits 49ers for teaching leadership


By Janie McCauley
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SANTA CLARA Donte Whitner hears it


from every direction, the constant questions
about Clevelands losing. His own frustrated
kids give him regular flak about it.
The veteran safety didnt exactly bargain for
this when he joined his hometown Cleveland
Browns before last season, ready to carry the
winning tradition he helped establish with the
San Francisco 49ers to his new franchise.
Instead, a young Cleveland team is 2-10 and
at the bottom in the AFC North after going 79 in coach Mike Pettines first season a year
ago when Whitner came aboard, just 13
months removed from reaching the Super
Bowl with the 49ers.
It is a bit frustrating. Especially coming
home, and being from here, and having to
hear people family members, even my own
children say stuff about us losing, and (asking) when are we going to start winning,
Whitner said. So it has been tough. One
thing I can say is, we havent given up. We
have guys that want to get things right.
As Whitner prepares to face his former

The Tigers evened their record at 2-2 with
the shutout win over the Knights.
Sophia Martinez opened the scoring just
before halftime, converting a pass from Ari
Durham in the 30th minute.
The Tigers finally got some breathing
room just before the final whistle, with
Shay Levy scoring an unassisted goal in the
70th minute.

49ers (4-8) on Sunday, he


recalls his three successful
seasons out West as a pivotal stretch for him in
learning to become a
leader by watching those
around him: Justin Smith.
Patrick
Willis.
Jim
Harbaugh. Vic Fangio.
Like Whitner, all four of
Donte Whitner
those men are now gone.
Harbaugh is coaching Michigan, while
Fangio is defensive coordinator in Chicago.
Those special defenses that commanded the
NFLs respect as one of the best units at stopping the run were dismantled in a matter of
months last season when Willis walked away
from football at age 30 and Smith later followed.
Whitner soaked up all he could from his
time around those two stars.
Being with the 49ers definitely helped me
as a leader, learning from guys like Justin of
course, Pat, just everybody that we had there,
Whitner said. Everybody held their own and
no matter what happened during the week and
no matter what happened on the field, when it

came to Sundays guys were going to be ready


to play football and win games. Thats what
we had there. We had a chemistry unmatched.
Whitner was with the 49ers from 2011-13,
helping the organization advance to its first
Super Bowl in 18 years after the 2012 season.
San Francisco missed a chance at its sixth
championship in a three-point loss to
Baltimore with Harbaughs big brother,
John, coaching the other side.
Now, Whitner is rooting for 49ers running
back and ex-Browns teammate Shaun Draughn
after they were Friday weightlifting partners
always eager to get a workout in even if it was
optional on the schedule.
Thats my guy, Draughn said.
When Draughn broke his hand late in training camp this past summer, he couldnt grab a
bar to lift so I was inventing stuff. Draughn
used a strap over his cast to still do his curls.
He was like, Oh, yeah, I like that one,
Draughn recalled of Whitners reaction. Hes
a guy that leads on that team. As a young guy
still, not in a sense of years but in a sense of
playing, you look up to those guys. Hes been
to the Pro Bowl, hes done a lot of great
things.

Draughn and Whitner will hardly be the


only ones having a reunion this weekend at
FirstEnergy Stadium.
San Francisco placekicker Phil Dawson
played his first 14 seasons for the Browns,
while Cleveland three-time All-Pro punter
Andy Lee spent his initial 11 years with San
Francisco before being traded in June after the
Niners drafted punter Bradley Pinion. San
Francisco defensive coordinator Eric Mangini
coached Cleveland in 2009-10 after beginning as a Browns ball boy in 1994.
As the 30-year-old Whitner nears the end of
his 10th NFL season and second back home
with Cleveland, he has 66 tackles, half a sack
and a forced fumble heading into Sunday.
Weve had a little bad luck this year losing by field goals, getting called offside, getting an interception versus Denver in the latter parts of the game and overtime, he said.
Were a lot closer than a lot of people would
give us credit for. Nobody is going to believe
it until we actually go out there and turn it
around and put some wins together. But right
now were in the same boat as the San
Francisco 49ers and were just clawing for a

Ronaldo about his future:
Barcelona is not off limits

By Tales Azzoni
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MADRID Cristiano Ronaldo is


really serious about keeping his
options open for the future. Not even
Barcelona or Manchester Uniteds
rivals in England are off limits.
Ronaldo told The Associated Press
on Thursday that he knows it would
be very complicated to play for
these clubs, but its something that
the Real Madrid star doesnt rule out
either.
He said nothing is certain in soccer, so he will not close doors to any
leagues or teams, not even Madrids
biggest rival.
Its a little more difficult, but...,
he said, with a long pause, not dismissing the possibility.
There are things that you kind of
already have an idea, that to play
one day for Barcelona would be
almost impossible, or to play for

another English club other than


Manchester, its very complicated,
he said. But thats not 100 percent
guaranteed. As I said before, there
are no certainties in football.
In his interview with the AP, the
Portugal forward made it clear that
when its time to decide about his
future, he will consider all options
on the table.
Everything is open, all
leagues, he said. I may end my
career here with Real Madrid. Im
just being honest. I dont know
whats going to happen tomorrow.
If I was 75 percent certain, I would
say so, it wouldnt be a problem.
But I have no idea.
Speaking before the launch of his
new product with nutrition partner
Herbalife, Ronaldo said he may even
decide to be somewhere else other
than Europe, and that its not impossible for him to be playing in the
United States Major League Soccer.

Sophomore goalkeeper Prisilla
Sanchez did not get a lot of work

did a better job in the second half
of applying some offensive pressure, forcing Sanchez into making
eight second-half saves.
Shes done a great job, Flynn
said of Sanchez. Im glad she
wants to play goalie.
Summit Preps offense perked up
once Alexa Vargas moved from her
first-half sweeper spot and moved
into the attack. She managed to

THE DAILY JOURNAL


get a couple decent shots on
frame, but her game ended with
about 20 minutes to play after taking a knock to her leg.
The scoring came early and
often for Crystal Springs (3-1).
Bosley opened the scoring in the
third minute, hammering home a
shot from 30 yards.
In the 10th minute, a Nora shot
deflected off a Summit Prep defender for an own goal. In the 12th,
Duncanson got her first goal of
the game. Running onto a through
ball, Duncanson gained possession just past midfield, split a pair
of defenders and carried the ball
into the box. She made a cutback
move to lose a third defender
before putting away her shot for a
3-0 Crystal Springs lead.
In the 21st minute, Duncanson
found Aldridge on a perfect
through ball and Aldridge slotted
home a shot for her first goal. She
added her second a little more than
a minute later when she won the
ball near midfield, carried to the
top of the box and slotted another
shot past a charging goalkeeper

for a 5-0 lead.


Duncanson rounded out the firsthalf scoring with a rocket of a goal
from the top of the penalty box.
In the second half, Flynn moved
all his offensive players to
defense to give some of the bench
players some time. That didnt
stop Aldridge from picking up her
third goal, however. Playing in a
defensive midfield position in the
second half, she happened to be in
the right place at the right time
following a corner kick. After a
scramble in the box, the ball
squirted out to Aldridge, who was
25 yards out. Her shot weaved
through traffic before taking a
deflection and settling into the
net.
Murphy scored her second goal
of the season off an assist from
Becky Berman for the Gryphons
eighth goal and Berman rounded
out the scoring in the 60th
minute, off an assist from Bosley.
Today was about character
(coming off the loss to Terra
Nova), Flynn said. It was a little
bit of a challenge.

Angels get Escobar from Nats

MLB brief

WASHINGTON The Angels


have acquired infielder Yunel
Escobar and cash considerations
from the Washington Nationals
for right-handed pitchers Trevor
Gott and Michael Brady.

Escobar fills the hole left by


David Freeses departure for free
agency. Escobar played third base
last season and batted .314 with
nine homers and 56 RBIs in 139
games. He is due $7 million in

2016 and has a $7 million team


option for 2017 with a $1 million
buyout. The Angels will be his
sixth team in seven years, including a five-day stint with the As
for whom he never played, being
moved from Tampa Bay to Oakland
to Washington in January.

Jays select Biagini from Giants


After enjoying his finest season

rotation with Giants Double-A affil-

DAVID KOHL/USA TODAY SPORTS

Hillsborough native Tyler Goeddel was claimed by the Phillies as the first
overall pick in Thursdays Major League Baseball Rule 5 draft.
iate Richmond, right-hander Joe
Biagini will be taking his talents
north with a chance to make the
Toronto Blue Jays major league
roster next season.
Biagini was selected by the Blue
Jays in Thursdays Rule 5 draft. The
25-year-old Santa Clara native
who grew up a Giants fan called
Thursdays transaction bittersweet.
Obviously, I grew up a Giants
fan, Biagini said. My dad played
(for them too) and I was very comfortable with the organization. They
gave me a lot of opportunities, especially my first one.
A graduate of The Kings Academy,
Biagini went on to play at the
College of San Mateo in 2009 before
taking a medical redshirt in 2010
after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He transferred to UC Davis in
2011 and was selected in the 26th
round by the Giants later that year.
Through four professional seasons, Biagini made strides each year,
culminating in a 2015 campaign during which he posted a 10-7 record
over 22 starts. His 2.42 ERA ranked
second in the Eastern League.
I want people to see Im confident

and improving and continuing to do


so, Biagini said. And I just want to
continue to do that and keep proving
what I can do.
Also selected in Thursdays Rule 5
draft were former Stanford infielder
Colin Walsh (by the Brewers from the
As); former Cal right-hander Blake
Smith (by the Padres from the White
Sox); and right-hander Luis Perdomo
(by the Rockies from the Cardinals),
who was selected in the 2009 Rule 5
draft by the Giants, but returned to the
St. Louis Cardinals at the outset of the
regular season.
The Rule 5 draft works similarly to
waiver claims. Any veteran minor
league player based on the variable
number of years played, in accordance
to the age of the player when he
signed his first professional contract
who is not added to his respective
teams 40-man roster after the allotted
seasons have elapsed is available to
be drafted via the Rule 5 by another
organization. The player must be
included on the drafting teams major
league roster for the entirety of the
proceeding season, or be returned to
the previous team.

Stanford looking for


soccer championship

Continued from page 11


a historic place in Hillsborough
Little League lore. As part of the
Hillsborough Little League Majors
in 2007, he helped the team to its
first ever District 52 title.
Goeddel
again
led
the
Hillsborough Majors to the 2008
District 52 title. The team fell in the
Section 3 finals both years.
Hillsborough went on to win five
consecutive District 52 championships.
Some of the best memories I have
where playing for Hillsborough
Little League, Goeddel said.
Goeddel finished his amateur
career at St. Francis, where he was
part of a talent-laden team including
Blandino; current Seattle Mariners
prospect Braden Bishop; and
Colorado
Rockies
farmhand
Richard Prigatano.
Just weeks prior to Goeddel being
drafted by the Rays in 2009, he
played his final high school game
with the Lancers, a 4-3 loss to the
Carlmont Scots in the Central
Coast Section Division I playoffs.
It was probably the most celebrated
win in modern Carlmont baseball
history, as it marked the biggest of
upsets, with St. Francis seeded No.
1 and Carlmont seeded No. 16 in the
16-team bracket.
I dont want to say we overlooked them, but we definitely didnt play our best as a team, Goeddel
said. It was disappointing for sure
because we felt we had the best team
in CCS. We wanted to get Coach
[Mike Oakland] a championship
but it was fun team to be a apart of
for sure.
The Phillies who finished the
2015 season with the worst record
in the Major Leagues at 63-99
have seen a marked roster makeover
this offseason, especially in the
outfield. Along with adding
Goeddel, the Phillies claimed outfielder Peter Bourjos from the St.
Louis Cardinals and added speedster
center field prospect Roman Quinn
to the roster.
I know they have some outfielders but if I do a good job, I have a
chance to stick with them for the
whole year, Goeddel said. Thats
the plan.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. This isnt


Clemsons first rodeo. Nor is it
Akrons or Stanfords.
No. 4 ranked Akron (18-3-2) faces
No. 8 ranked Stanford (17-2-2) in
Friday NCAA semifinals, with the
winners advancing to Sundays
national championship game.
Out of the four programs, Akron
has been to the big dance the most
recently. Akron claimed its first
national championship in 2010.
The Zips are ready to get things
rolling.
All the players too, yesterday it
was like, can we get out of Akron?
Can we get to Kansas City? Can we
get the feel of the event? Akron
coach Jared Embrick said. Theyre
really hungry to play the game.
But Akrons not going to be doing
anything out of its playbook.
This is the time you stick to what
got you here, Embrick said. Were
an attacking team and if we start to
become defensive, thats not who we
are; were going to be in trouble.
Akron comes into the tournament
with 56 goals on the season, averaging 2.4 per game. No other team
in the College Cup field has or averages more.
But defeating Stanford, regardless
of Akrons offensive presence, is a
tall task. The Cardinal upended No.
1 ranked Wake Forest 2-1 in the
quarterfinals. Stanford also has two
of the best collegiate players in the
country in junior forward Jordan
Morris and senior defender Brandon
Vincent. Morris was the first college player to be called up to the

NEW YORK Steve Kerr wouldnt be eligible to coach in the AllStar Game. The

if Kerr hasnt returned following

Stanford coach
Jeremy Gunn said of Akron. Theyve
got a great program, coaching staff
and players. They love to attack and
score goals and itll be our job to do
our best and not let that happen.
For Syracuse, deep postseason
runs are generally left up to its
mens basketball team.
Not this season.
No. 6 seed Syracuse (16-5-3)
earned its first bid to the College
Cup after defeating fellow ACC
squad Boston College in the quarterfinals, avenging its regular-season
loss to the Eagles.
Its
surreal,
junior
midfielder/defender combo Liam
Callahan said of making it to the
College Cup. I think a lot of guys
still havent really accepted the fact
that were here. Of course, youre
going to have high energy now.
First time in school history weve
been here, so hopefully we continue
our run and get to the final.
The Orange get another ACC foe in
their first College Cup match on
Friday
night:
second-seeded
Clemson, which has not advanced
this far in the tournament since 2005.
The Tigers (17-2-3) advanced
after beating Maryland on penalty
kicks in a quarterfinal thriller.
Clemson and Syracuse split their
regular-season games 1-1.

NBA brief
following play on Jan. 31 earn
spots in Toronto for the Feb. 14
game. But coaches arent allowed
the honor in consecutive years, a
rule that dates to Pat Rileys dominance with the Lakers in the
1980s, so Kerr is disqualified.
But Walton, who won Western
Conference coach of the month
for October/November and is eligible to win Coach of the Year
even though the Warriors 23-0
record is all credited to Kerr, hasnt been ruled out yet.
Frank says: At this point, it is
unclear when coach Kerr will
return to the sidelines. We are
more than two months away from
All-Star, so it feels premature to
address that situation.

that we will successfully complete these

Under current law, government funding
expires Friday at midnight, when the last
short-term spending bill expires. The
Senate agreed by voice vote and without
debate Thursday to extend that deadline
through Wednesday Dec. 16 to allow more
time for talks. The House was expected to
follow suit Friday, but Ryan allowed that
even more time might be needed.

Earlier, Ryan assured lawmakers from
Northeastern states that legislation extending health benefits and a compensation fund
for 9/11 first responders would be made part
of the spending bill. The spending legislation, which funds the government through
the 2016 budget year, has become increasingly intertwined with the tax bill, which
could deliver a political victory for both
parties.
Uncertainty remained as to whether lawmakers would pull off a major tax bill with
permanent extensions benefiting both
sides, or simply opt for a two-year extension of existing tax breaks. With Congress

TheatreWorks
reprises Emma
By Judy Richter
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

When TheatreWorks premiered Emma in 2007, it


became the most popular show in the companys 46 years.
After successful productions elsewhere, it has returned to
TheatreWorks with a new title, Jane Austens Emma, and a
few subtle alterations but with some of the same actors and
the same director, Robert Kelley.
Paul Gordon, who wrote the music, lyrics and book,
adapted this musical from the now 200-year-old novel by
Jane Austen. Its title character, Miss Emma Woodhouse,
played again by Lianne Marie Dobbs, is a member of the
landed gentry in an English village in 1815.
After successfully engineering the marriage of her governess, she fancies herself a matchmaker. Because of her
meddling and some misconceptions, however, subsequent
results arent as successful for Emma or anyone else.
Nevertheless, most characters are formally polite toward
her, as is the norm in Regency England. Only one person,
Mr. Knightley (Timothy Gulan, also reprising his role),
who has known her for a long time, has the audacity to call
her to task.
Most of the time, they bicker. It takes a while for them to
realize theyre in love.
Despite Gordons tuneful, accessible music, the first act
lacks the vibrancy that characterized the original production. It may be that Dobbs tries too hard to be perky and allknowing.
The second act is much better as Emma matures, recognizes her mistakes and makes sincere amends for the mischief she has unwittingly caused.
Dobbs sings well in her solos and some of her duets. She

From the sumptuous romance of Carol to

Have your Christmas Pudding ... And drink it, too!


By Michelle Locke
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Do you need a little Christmas


spirit? And would you care to have
said spirit served over ice or in a
festive cocktail?
Youre in luck. Following in the
footsteps of craft beers seasonal
offerings, liquor producers are
rolling out limited edition releases
aimed at making spirits bright this
holiday season.
Anchor Distilling Co. in San
Francisco hits the trend from both
the beer and spirits side. Sister
company Anchor Brewing releases
an annual Christmas Ale, holding
back some of that beer which is
then distilled and sold the following year as a white whiskey under
the catchy label of Spirit of
Christmas Past.
First released in 2013, the spirit
changes each year because
Anchors Christmas Ale uses a different recipe each year, says head
distiller Bruce Joseph. He recommends trying it in an old fashioned
for an old fashioned white
Christmas.
Though years end traditionally
is a time of brown spirits, gin is on
track seasonally with its juniper
notes. The Edinburgh Gin
Distillery has taken that characteristic a bit further, distilling their
Edinburghs Christmas Gin with
frankincense and myrrh. They recommend serving it in a classic gin
and tonic or in a Negroni.
Other possibilities include Jack

Anchor Distilling Co. in San Francisco released a white whiskey under the catchy label of Spirit of Christmas Past.
Daniels Winter Jack, which combines Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey
with apple cider liqueur and holiday
spices. Its best served warm.
Pinnacle, the vodka of many flavors, has a peppermint bark edition
out, and Kahlua has pumpkin spice
and peppermint mocha versions.
Cleveland Whiskey, which has
made waves with its rapid aging
process using chopped up barrels in
pressurized tanks, has a Christmas

Bourbon. Founder and chairman


Tom Lix says he was inspired to
make it after looking at all the different craft seasonal beers compared to the typical liquor offerings
generally limited to seasonal
packaging or boxes including
branded glassware.
We thought we could do better, a
bourbon with a unique holiday
aroma and flavor, something where
if you closed your eyes and took a

small sip youd almost hear the


reindeer bells in the background,
he says.
A lot of experimenting went into
the bourbon, most of it on the
kitchen stove mixing various
spices. The release, now in its third
year, mixes well with warm apple
cider, makes eggnog even better,
and can also be sipped straight or
mixed into a Manhattan, says Lix.
For those times when only bub-

bles will do, Chandon has risen to


the occasion with a Limited Edition
Blanc de Noirs, which comes
wrapped in white and gold labeling
and is printed with sentiments such
as Life of the Party and Bestie
Wishes.
And if your thoughts are turning
to a white Christmas consider High
West Distillery & Saloon in Park
City, Utah, billed as the worlds
only ski-in gastro distillery.
Located at the bottom of the
Quittin Time run in Park City
Mountain Resort, the distillery is
in its third year of releasing A
Midwinter Nights Dram as a seasonal offering.
In Park City, we consider
whiskey to be an indispensable
part of making it through our long,
cold winters, says founder David
Perkins. When I first tasted what
was to become A Midwinters
Nights Dram, the first words out of
my mouth were This tastes like
Christmas.
A Midwinter Nights Dram is a
limited release of High Wests
Rendezvous Rye finished in port
and French oak barrels port for a
touch of plums and dried fruit,
French oak for spices. According to
Perkins it tastes like a proper
Christmas plum pudding.
Of course if you really like
Christmas pudding and who
doesnt? you might want to scout
around for Christmas Pudding Gin,
which comes from Sacred Spirits, a
microdistillery set in the London
home of founder Ian Hart.

In In the Heart of the Sea, which opens

James Hunt.
In Heart of the Sea, a recounting of the

sperm whale, Hemsworths heroic seaman is
humbled, left a gaunt survivor. (The actor

Hems wo rth: I did get the recognition of:

opinion people have on that. I mean, I have
a huge amount of respect for the show. I
think its harder than just about anything.

Walker), and his first mate, Owen Chase


(Chris Hemsworth). Pollard is the son of
the expeditions proprietor. Hes wealthy,
arrogant, entitled and inexperienced.
Chase is the real seaman a workingclass Adonis with a classist chip on his
broad shoulders. Hes also arrogant, but
has the skills to back it up.
Chase flexes his hero muscles early,
bounding up a ladder to cut free a tangled
sail, and the Captain responds with illadvised bravado in leading the men fullspeed into a squall.
But the who leads question is abandoned quickly and without much resolution
once the whaling starts.
Perhaps the most striking scenes are
those that deal with the process of catching a whale, from spearing to the gory disemboweling. But whales are scarce on the

ships normal route and they must sail on


to get enough oil for their bosses. Its
thousands of miles off the coast of South
America where they encounter the big one,
which locks on the Essex with a
Terminators resolve.
Hemsworth is best when hes by himself
either barking orders or doing something physical. Of all the actors he shares
scenes with, its Cillian Murphy as his
second mate who brings out something
resembling emotion. But we never really
care about the lead, so theres little hope
that well be interested in the rest of the
men once it becomes solely about survival.
Indeed, most of the second half is spent
drifting with them on lifeboats. In these
interminable minutes, we dont get anything resembling an understanding of how

they survived (or didnt) either mentally or


physically. Future Tom Nickerson isnt
much help either, and Melville is already
too focused on his own literary ambitions
to actually ask the big questions he told us
he was seeking.
In the Heart of the Sea tries to be about
so many things ambition, capitalism,
greed and survival. In the end, it feels
most interested in how Herman Melville
got his classic. The pieces are there, but
apparently its up to Moby-Dick to
assemble them, not Ron Howard.
In the Heart of the Sea, a Warner Bros.
release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion
Picture Association of America for
intense sequences of action and peril, brief
startling violence, and thematic material.
Running time: 121 minutes. Two stars out

new apartments, 17 of which will be
affordable, at 488 Linden Ave. and 255
Cypress Ave.
Though city officials commended
the vision of the projects, both of
which are being developed by
Brookwood Equity, some councilmembers expressed concerns regarding the
construction financing.
Brookwood Equities needs to provide proof of a partnership with a private investment firm willing to commit the roughly $11.5 million required
up front for financing in the next 45
days, or city officials reserve the right
to halt development.
The developer will also need about
$30 million in loans to complete construction of the projects, and must
show commitment of those necessary
funds in one year, or the city could kill
the project as well.
Though the developer has yet to lock
down
financing
commitments,
Brookwood Equities CEO Shepherd
Heery expressed confidence the councils approval would pave the way for
getting the necessary funding.
We are concerned about moving
this process forward as quickly as we
can, said Heery.
Brookwood Equities is an investment and development subsidiary of
the Brookwood Group, which specializes in construction through garnering
public and private partnerships.
City officials also drafted an agreement which sets milestones for

Although the current flare of gas
burning off 24/7 will not completely
cease since the digester cannot convert

Furthermore, by purchasing at least

less reliant on traditional fuel. As
vehicles are the number one contributor to the citys greenhouse gas emissions, this project supports long-term

progress, such as when the projects


will break ground, and the building
could be called off should the developer not be able to deliver.
Alex Greenwood, the economic
development director of South San
Francisco, called the progress points
tools in our tool kit which would
compel [Brookwood Equities] to finish.
The city owns the Linden property,
and the Grand site was purchased with
redevelopment funds, and officials
have committed to contributing roughly $2. 1 million in grant funding
toward the projects development, due
in part to the affordable housing component.
The countys Housing Endowment
and Regional Trust has offered $1.2
million for construction of the affordable units as well.
Vice Mayor Pradeep Gupta said he
believes the project is a prime example of the potential power of collaboration which could address a tremendous need in the community for affordable housing.
Of the 17 total affordable units split
between the two projects, 14 will be
available for those who earn 80 percent of the area median income, which
for a household of two equates to about
$75,000 per year. The other three will
be set aside for a household of two
which earns about $99,000 annually.
The Cypress project, located only
blocks away from the Linden site, will
be five stories, with 46 units spread
across the top four floors sitting over
a ground floor of retail.
Plans include space for 21 one-bedroom apartments, 22 two-bedroom
units and three studios, and 9 units of
the building will be set aside at an

affordable rate.
The Linden building will also rise
five stories high, with the top four
floors comprised of 37 units, with four
studios, 18 one-bedroom units, 11
two-bedroom spaces and five threebedroom apartments. Eight of the
units will be set aside at an affordable
rate.
The ground floor of the Linden project will be reserved primarily for parking and resident amenities, such as a
lobby, fitness room and lounge.
Officials have expressed a desire to
add more dense and affordable housing
to South San Franciscos downtown
over the coming years, and Greenwood
said he believed the Brookwood projects represent a significant step toward
realizing that vision.
This will serve as a catalyst for
other development going forward,
said Greenwood.
Gupta noted the difficulties which
could be presented through the need to
attain commitments for financing, as
well as hitting the development milestones laid out in the agreement, but
expressed his support for the intricate
maneuvers required to pull the project
together.
This is a poster child project for the
cooperation between public and private entities, he said. Its very complex, but an indicator for other projects that might come about. I like the
concept and the way you have tried to
execute it.
Heery agreed with many of Guptas
sentiments, and said Brookwood
Entities is prepared to see the project
through.
We are committed to working collaboratively to the end, Heery said.

environmental initiatives.
Its definitely part of our Climate
Action Plan and sustainability goals
to switch from gas engines and diesel
engines to alternative fuels. The effect
of using the byproduct is we can utilize
it instead of burning it off or essentially wasting it, Underwood said.
The plant will be producing nearly
160,000 diesel gallon equivalents of
biofuel each year, more than the initial
fleet of new vehicles can use.
Eventually, the city will likely expand
its fleet and may consider selling the
gas to anyone with compressed natural
gas vehicles either individuals or
other cities. The city may also consider finding other ways to use the cleaner burning gas within plant operations, such as to fuel the boiler,
Underwood said.
With the nearly $2.5 million grant
from
the
California
Energy
Commission, this breakthrough and

exciting project has tremendous financial as well as environmental benefits,


said Mayor Joe Goethals.
It really adds up in terms of carbon
reductions that the city gets from this.
Its carbon that would otherwise just be
admitted into the atmosphere and
instead were using it to offset the
gasoline that our fleet would otherwise
use. So its a very exciting project and
were glad to be the model for the state
on this, Goethals said. I think were
going to see wastewater treatment
plants converting to this, because its
not only good for the environment,
its good for our budget.
The groundbreak ing ceremony
begins 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 11, at the
San Mateo Wastewater Treatment
Plant, 2050 Detroit Driv e, San Mateo.

Can trading pollution like


stocks help climate change?
By Bernard Condon
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

REUTERS

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon delivers his speech during the World Climate
Change Conference 2015 (COP21) at Le Bourget, near Paris.

New draft of climate deal


emerges as talks near end
By Karl Ritter and Sylvie Corbet
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LE BOURGET, France French Foreign


Minister Laurent Fabius on Thursday presented a new draft of a global climate accord
that showed headway on some key issues
and stalemate on others as the talks outside
Paris headed into the final stretch.
The 27-page draft two pages shorter
than a previous version included a longterm goal of keeping global warming well
below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees F),
while pursuing efforts to limit the temperature rise to 1.5 degrees C.
The draft also said governments would
aim to peak the emissions of heat-trapping
greenhouse gases as soon as possible and
strive to reach emissions neutrality by
the second half of the century.
That was weaker language than in previous drafts that included more specific emissions cuts and timeframes. Emissions neutrality wasnt defined in the text. Previous
versions have included similar terms that
are generally understood to mean no more
emissions than the Earth can naturally
absorb.
The issue appeared far from settled, however, with one negotiator from a developed
country saying his delegation would push
back on the long-term goal. He spoke on

condition of anonymity because the talks


were ongoing.
Fabius, who is leading the talks, told
negotiators to review the draft and come
back in two hours to continue the talks. The
Paris conference was scheduled to end on
Friday, but the annual U.N. talks rarely finish on time.
I think, I hope that by the end of this
night well have a draft of the final text,
Fabius said. We are much closer.
Diplomats from 196 governments are trying to forge a global pact in Paris to slow
global warming by collectively slashing
emissions, mostly from the burning oil,
coal and gas for energy.
The biggest challenge is to define the
responsibilities of wealthy nations, which
have polluted the most historically, and
developing economies including China and
India where emissions are growing the
fastest.
That draft suggested compromises were
emerging in some sections. But the text
still contained competing options on the
key issue of transparency making sure
countries follow through on their emissions targets.
That section included an option asking
for different rules for rich and poor countries, which the former have said is unacceptable.

NEW YORK The gas produced by hog


manure at farms across the U.S. punches holes
in the ozone layer, overheats the planet, and
angers neighbors with its peculiar odor, a mix
of rotten egg and ammonia.
All thats needed to clear the air is to cover
the manure with a system of tarps that captures the gas, but many farms dont do it
because its too expensive.
If you dont give people incentives to
come up with solutions, theyre not going to
do it, says Rudi Roeslein, a wealthy entrepreneur who thinks hes found a fix.
His plan: Raise money to help pay for the
tarp systems through a greenhouse gas trading market in California, where companies
can pay others who are helping the environment so that they can continue to pollute.
Widely derided by politicians on the left
and the right, once thought dead even by its
supporters, the idea of allowing companies to
buy and sell pollution rights like stocks is
now at the fore again as 151 heads of state and
government at the Paris climate conference
grope for ways to avert environmental havoc.
Under such cap-and-trade systems, polluters are required to keep emissions below a
certain level or hand over money to polluters
that have managed to fall below theirs and
have surplus pollution permits to sell. To cut
greenhouse gases, the statewide level, or
cap, is gradually lowered, forcing companies to figure out new ways of running their
businesses to cut emissions.
If all goes well, Roeslein, an Austrian
immigrant who made a fortune building metal
can factories around the world, hopes to eventually capture gases from nine hog farms in
Missouri that, left to rise in the atmosphere,
would have done the same damage as releasing
850,000 tons of carbon dioxide every year.

His project will be like taking 180,000 cars


off the road.
Roeslein is so convinced the idea will
work, maybe enough to turn a profit, hes putting $25 million of his own money behind
the venture.
California Gov. Jerry Brown, whos created
a bit of stir at the Paris talks scheduled to conclude Friday, has been touting his states
emissions trading market as a model to help
solve the global climate crisis. One study,
from the non-profit Environmental Defense
Fund, says emissions from companies in the
market fell 11 percent below the cap
allowed in 2013, according to the latest data
available, while economic growth doesnt
appear to have been harmed.
It has got nothing to do with do-gooders.
Its about the almighty dollar, says Lenny
Hochschild, managing director of emissions
broker Evolution Markets. Its about incentivizing people.
There are deep concerns about whether
these pollution trading systems can cut emissions as much as scientists say is needed, or
even if they can work at all.
First proposed by economists in the
1960s, a pollution permit market remained
mostly an academic idea until President
George H. W. Bush championed it as a way of
getting power plants to cut emissions of sulfur dioxide, which leads to acid rain. Annual
emissions plunged, at much less cost than
expected, and the program is widely considered a success.
The European Union followed with a carbon
dioxide trading program in 2005. In addition
to buying surplus permits from cleaner polluters, power plants and factories emitting
more than their limit could buy permits from
offsets around the world, projects capturing
methane fumes from hogs, for instance, or
chlorofluorocarbons used in refrigeration,
another ozone killer.
