Officials explore SanMateogroundwaterbasin


Agencies, city, county consider managing local basin for supplemental water source
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

In an effort to explore alternate


water sources to serve the
Peninsula, officials from various
cities, counties, utilities and other
stakeholder groups will study and
possibly regulate a little-used
groundwater basin.
The Bay Area Water Supply and
Conservation
Agency,
or

BAWSCA, hosted a kickoff meeting last month to discuss a collaborative effort called the Ground
Water Reliability Partnership,
which will consider opportunities
within San Mateo Plan Sub-basin.
The goal is to investigate the
hydrology and geology of the currently unregulated basin that
spans multiple jurisdictions
between the southern portion of
Burlingame down to the San

Francisquito Creek on the southern San Mateo County border, said


BAWSCA CEO Nicole Sandkulla.
The historic drought has caused
many throughout the state to consider how to become less dependent on surface water sources.
While most on the Peninsula
drink from the Hetch Hetchy
Reservoir system courtesy of the
San Francisco Public Utilities
Commission, various agencies are

considering how to combat dry


spells while providing for an
increasing population by diversifying resources such as turning
to groundwater and investigating
other methods like recycled water
and desalinization, Sandkulla
said.
Historically [the basin] was
used before the Hetchy supply
came in and we havent really
relied upon it since. Now, theres

an increased focus with new technology like brackish water or


injecting recycled water, theres
some interest in the basin. So
lets bring together stakeholders
and talk about what we know about
the basin, Sandkulla said. Then
we can all better understand how
the basin operates and look to new
projects and make sure theres a

San Mateo County has hired a consultant to study the feasibility of purchasing Sharp Park Golf Course in Pacifica
from the city and county of San Francisco.

County studies golf course purchase


Sharp Park Golf Course in Pacifica owned by San Francisco
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

San Mateo County is exploring


whether it makes financial sense
to purchase the Sharp Park Golf
Course from the city and county of
San Francisco.
County Manager John Maltbie
has hired an outside consultant to
assess the financial feasibility of
buying the municipal golf course
in Pacifica, which has been the
subject of lawsuits over threatened
frogs and endangered snakes that
thrive in the area.
Maltbie will update the Board of

Supervisors on the proposal at the


Tuesday, Nov. 3, meeting.
The course is managed by the
San Francisco Recreation and
Parks Department.
Designed by preeminent architect Alister MacKenzie, the links
first opened in 1932. The land was
a gift to the city of San Francisco
in 1917 by the estate of Honora
Sharp. The gift was given on the
condition the land be used exclusively for a public playground or
park or be turned back to the heirs
of the estate.
In late 2011, an ordinance by
San Francisco Supervisor John

Avalos proposed that the golf


course be managed by the National
Park Service. That proposal could
have led to the closure of the
course, however, since federal
officials said they were not interested in managing a golf course.
Mayor Ed Lee ultimately vetoed
the proposal.
Then in 2012, the San Mateo
County Board of Supervisors
voted unanimously to explore the
possibility of taking over management of the golf course, which
takes up about 120 acres of the

State Sen. Jerry Hill has vowed


to renew his efforts to ensure
schools and local governments
consider alternatives before using
recycled tires as infill in the
increasingly popular synthetic
turf fields.
Hill, D-San Mateo, has argued
the crumb rubber frequently used
on artificial turf has been linked to
ingredients known to cause cancer
and further study is needed to determine the impacts of exposing
children and athletes to used tires.
Hill proposed Senate Bill 47 last
session but it stalled after it faced
lobbying efforts from those who
support the artificial turf industry.
Now, he now seeks to revive legislation that would require public

agencies like
schools
and
governments to
consider using
non-toxic infill
al t ern at i v es
instead
of
defaulting to
the typically
cheaper recyJerry Hill
cled tires.
If youre made aware of the
potential hazards and potential
health risks involved, youll err
on the side of safety and responsibility and go with an alternative,
and there are many alternatives,
Hill said.
Yet conclusive data concerning
the impacts are lacking and Hill
said he was prompted to act by

Arrest in L.A. serial shooting


case that killed two, wounded six
LOS ANGELES A man has been
arrested and charged in a serial shooting
and robbery case that killed two people
and wounded six others in Los Angeles
over a three-year period, police
announced Monday.
Patrick Watkins, 51, was arrested
Thursday on two murder charges and 25
charges of attempted murder in the
Western Bandit case, named for the
street where some crimes occurred.
It wasnt immediately clear whether
Watkins has an attorney. He was expected to have his first court appearance on
Tuesday.
The latest of 23 crimes linked to the
case was the fatal shooting of a 56-yearold man as he walked his dog on Dec. 8,
2014. The other killing linked to the
case is the November 2011 fatal shooting of 32-year-old Cassidy Vickers.
Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie
Beck said the same gun was linked to all
the cases and was recovered during
Watkins arrest.
Capt. William Hayes, who heads the
departments elite Robbery Homicide
Division, said the crimes were quickly
linked to the same case because of the

them and the unusual method of operation all the victims in the case
reported being shot at before they were
robbed.

City seeks input from walkers and bikers


By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The safety of San Bruno residents who walk


and bike through their community will be the
focus of an upcoming study by officials interested in improving pedestrian thoroughfares
across the city.
Those who live and work in San Bruno are
invited to offer their perspective on how to
improve transportation routes by participating in the creation of the citys first comprehensive walk and bike master plan.
Officials are offering a variety of ways for
those interested to offer input on the planning process, including a public workshop to
be held Wednesday, Nov. 4 at the American
Legion Hall, 575 San Mateo Ave., and a group
walk or bike ride through the city Saturday,
Nov. 7. Community Development Director
David Woltering said city officials are looking to offer engaging and creative ways to
encourage community members to get
involved in improving the transportation
routes they use daily.
This should be a lot of fun for everyone
involved and be very informative, he said.
Officials are seeking feedback through the
end of the year from the community on how
bicycle and walking paths can be improved,
with an eye to developing a comprehensive
action plan which will address many of those
needs beginning in the spring, said
Woltering.
We want to hear directly from our citizens
about the current conditions and what they
would like to see in terms of improvements,
he said.
Ultimately the feedback may lead to striped
bike lanes on certain streets, more lighting at
intersections, crosswalk improvements,
independent bike routes developed through
the city and other similar projects, said

Woltering. He said officials are hopeful the


input they receive from residents may help
them track down grant funding which the city
could apply for to finance some of the
improvements being considered.
The plan will really help us identify the
improvements and be positioned to apply for
grants, he said.
As part of the master plan process,
Woltering said officials are also looking to
create better and safer routes to school for students throughout San Bruno.
We are looking at what we can do in terms
of improvements to encourage students to get
out and ride their bike or walk to school and
feel safe about doing that, he said.
An online community survey has been created for those interested in providing some
initial feedback, and everyone who participates is eligible to win a $50 gift card to
online retailer Amazon, according to a city
report. There is also a map of the city online
where community members can identify
problematic areas of transportation and suggest improvements.
Woltering said officials are hopeful to
receive input from as broad of a cross section
of the community as possible to address the
needs of residents, workers, those who enjoy
recreation opportunities in San Bruno and
many others.
We want to make it more safe for people to
get around our community, he said.
The project is the first time the city has
considered developing a master plan to comprehensively address walking and bike paths
through San Bruno, said Woltering.
He said more than 150 people have already
provided some form of input through the
available online venues, but officials are
hopeful the public events this week will be a
more interactive opportunity to offer feedback. Bikers or walkers who wish to partici-

pate in the group event this weekend are


invited to the San Bruno Recreation Center,
251 City Park Way in San Bruno City Park, to
cruise through the city either on foot or by
pedal, while discussing how to improve public transportation paths.
The event Saturday begins at 10 a.m. and is
expected to end around 12:30 p.m. Those who
wish toi participate in the bike ride should
expect to ride on streets with traffic, which
may not make it an appropriate event for
novice bicyclists, according to the report.
Its a chance for people to get out into the
field and see the existing conditions, he
said. It will be a very interactive outing.
Woltering said officials are hopeful the ultimate outcome of the initiative is to make San
Bruno a city which is easier to navigate by
walking or biking, with the intent of helping
to create a more healthy and safe community.
We are really trying to encourage people
to bike more or to walk more for the purposes
of getting around the community, he said.
The public workshop featuring a presentation on the plan followed by group discussion on pedestrian and bicycling priorities
will begin 7 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 4, in the
American Legion Hall, 757 San Mateo Ave.
To participate in the group walk or bike ride
Saturday, Nov. 7, interested parties are
encouraged to contact project manager Paula
Bradley
via
email
at
pbradley@sanbruno.ca.gov or at (650) 6167038. Advance signup and city liability
waiver is required.

Clean energy JPA in works


DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT

The San Mateo County Board of


Supervisors is set Tuesday to approve
an ordinance to officially implement a
Community Choice Aggregation program, which will allow for the purchase of renewable energy in bulk.
With board approval, the Office of
Sustainability will then prepare a joint
powers agreement with partnering
cities and a resolution to execute it.
The county and cities that participate will form a nonprofit agency to
buy energy from sources other than
Pacific Gas and Electric.
The JPA for the program, called
Peninsula Clean Energy, is expected to
be formed by February 2016.
The county will need at least three of
20 cities to join the JPA to get it off
the ground. The hope, however, is that
all cities will partner with the county
to allow residents to buy clean energy.
So far, as many as 10 cities are
expected to participate with the county
in the joint venture, according to a

Water main
breaks in Redwood City
A street was closed and water service
disrupted for more than eight hours
Monday near Redwood City due to a
water main break, according to police.
Redwood City police reported the broken pipe at 8:48 a.m., prompting the
closure of Sylvan Way between Glenloch
and Lakeview ways in the community of
Emerald Hills. The break was fixed at

staff report by Jim Eggemeyer, the


director of the countys Office of
Sustainability.
The JPA would allow its customers to
buy renewable energy at competitive
rates. In fact, customers who purchase
100 percent renewable energy from
sources such as wind or solar will see
their monthly electric bills rise by
about $2, according to a technical
study.
The idea is to dramatically reduce the
countys carbon footprint by releasing
less greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
If the JPA is formed, residents will
have to opt out of the program if they
want to continue to purchase their
power from PG&E.
The deadline for cities to join the
JPA is Feb. 28, 2016.
There are currently three of the
aggregation programs operating in the
state including Marin Clean Energy
and Sonoma Clean Energy. A third,
Lancaster Choice Energy in Los
Angeles County just started.

Community Choice Aggregation


allows a local government, or group of
local governments, to pool the electricity demand of their residential,
business and municipal accounts in
order to purchase or develop power on
their behalf.
The program could also lead to local
job creation in the clean energy sector.
The total cost to implement the JPA
is expected to cost $1.5 million. The
county has been looking at three scenarios to purchase renewable energy at
either 35 percent, 50 percent or 100
percent. The 100 percent scenario
means zero emissions were generated
during energy production. Customers
in the county who buy their power
from companies such as SolarCity will
not be affected by the proposal.
The renewable energy will be delivered on PG&E lines.

Space station marks 15 years
of nonstop human presence
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.
Humankind marked an off-the-planet
pinnacle Monday: the 15th anniversary of continuous residency at the
International Space Station.
NASA and its global partners celebrated the milestone, as did the six
astronauts on board. The U.S.,
Russian and Japanese spacemen
planned a special dinner 250 miles
up. Commander Scott Kelly, seven
months into a yearlong mission,
said the biggest benefit of the orbiting lab is furthering long-term

Obama to call for breaking


cycle of incarceration
WASHINGTON More than
half a million people leave U.S.
prisons each year, but with jobs,
housing and mental health services scarce, many are soon back
behind bars.
On Monday,
President Barack Obama will call
for breaking that cycle of incarceration by helping former inmates
successfully re-enter society.
With his visit to a drug treatment
center in Newark, New Jersey,
Obama aims to boost his ongoing
push for overhauling the criminal
justice system. In rare bipartisan
fashion, Congress is considering
legislation cutting sentences for
nonviolent drug offenders, but
Obama will seek to force attention
to the plight offenders face once

Obama signs two-year


budget and debt deal
before default deadline
By Kathleen Hennessey
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON President
Barack Obama on Monday signed
into law a bipartisan budget bill
that avoids a catastrophic U.S.
default and puts off the next round
of fighting over federal spending
and debt until after next years
presidential and congressional
elections.
Obama praised the rare bipartisan cooperation behind the deal,
saying that two-year agreement
that funds the government through
the 2017 fiscal year puts the government on a responsible path.
It should finally free us from the
cycle of shutdown threats and lastminute fixes and allows us to,
therefore, plan for the future,
Obama said in brief remarks as he
signed the bill.
Tuesday was the deadline for

averting a default on U.S. financial


obligations by raising the debt
limit.
The Senate gave final approval
to the House-passed bill late last
week and sent it to Obama. He
signed it in the Oval Office, shortly before departing on a day trip to
New Jersey and New York to focus
on the criminal justice system, as
well as raise money for his fellow
Democrats.
The legislation raises the limit
on the governments debt through
March 2017, pushing reconsideration of what in recent years has
become a contentious issue until
after the elections for the White
House and Congress in November
2016.
The measure also sets federal
spending through the 2016 and
2017 fiscal years, and eases strict
caps on spending by providing an
additional $80 billion, split even-

ly between military and domestic
programs. The Appropriations
committees must write legislation
to reflect the spending and they
face a Dec. 11 deadline to finish
the work.
Negotiations over the budget,
which began weeks ago, wrapped
up quickly last week as Republican
Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin prepared to become the new House
speaker.
Obama negotiated the agreement

with Republican and Democratic


congressional leaders who were
intent on steering the institution
away from the brinkmanship and
government shutdown threats that
have haunted lawmakers for years.
Republican Rep. John Boehner of
Ohio, who stepped down both as
speaker and from his seat in
Congress at the end of last week,
said he felt a sense of urgency to
reach a deal before turning the
gavel over to Ryan.

Bush hits campaign reset, retools slogan: Jeb Can Fix It


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Jeb


Bush hit the reset button on his
faltering presidential campaign,
racing across Florida Monday
with a new slogan that cast him as
the sole Republican candidate who
can right whats wrong with
Washington: Jeb Can Fix It.
But the pithy phrasing could

to his effort to
steady the campaign as it does
to his sense of

This is not

about big personalities on the


stage. Its not about talking. Its
about doing, the two-term
Florida governor told supporters
in Jacksonville, the last of three
stops for the day.
His remarks, repeated earlier in
Tampa and Orlando, were obvious
jabs at rivals Donald Trump and
Marco Rubio, and a nod to his flat

performance in the debate last


week in Colorado.
Bushs reset comes as a populist
surge has propelled the outsider
campaigns of bombastic developer Trump and retired neurosurgeon
Ben Carson and created an
opportunity for Rubio, a freshman

Why are we paying for

Editor,
County Supervisors Carole Groom
and Dave Pines guest perspective about
local power in the Oct. 23 edition of
the Daily Journal states, These benets have been achieved without public
subsidy or additional cost to taxpayers
because CCE programs are revenue-supported as all utilities are and
require no public funds to operate.
I believe the county initially spent
$300,000 to fund this program and
estimated the cost of launching it to
be $1.5 million?

the issues related to overpopulated residential neighborhoods. Some of these
structures are built under the guise of
being for family, but in very short order
revert to income housing units. Does
Redwood City now assume liability for
the soundness of the construction and
the lives of the people who live is substandard units? The changes to the
Additional Housing Unit Ordinance are
just another nail in the cofn.
We have a City Council elected by
less than 5 percent of the residents of
Redwood City, that is owned by developers, utilities, construction unions
and business groups. They have time
after time shown who they answer to.
They dont have to answer to the people of Redwood City because the city
has created a environment where the
council is elected in an election cycle
where there are only local issues, no
state or federal. These elected ofcials
might say it isnt their responsibility
to ensure that the people of Redwood

what governs this city.

Test of leadership
E
ffective leadership calls for making tough and
often unpopular choices. We have seen this
throughout our history. President Abraham
Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation at a time
when our country had never been more divided, over the
issue of slavery. President Dwight Eisenhower enforced
desegregation of public schools at a time when many
states were vehemently opposed to it.
History tells us that the most effective leadership prioritizes the lives of others above all else, particularly
when it comes to disaster. In the wake of the terrorist
attacks of Sept. 11, the nation witnessed unwavering
leadership from President
George W. Bush in his fearless
presidential address to the
nation. Bush subsequently
declared war on Afghanistan
and urged Congress to pass the
Patriot Act. Although I am critical of the Bush administrations sweeping measures and
tactics, I am thankful that the
Bush administration and
Congress took critical steps to
protect us from dozens of
potential attacks on our
Jonathan Madison
beloved soil.
By contrast, we have also seen the ramifications of
ineffective leadership in the face of natural disasters. In
2005, we witnessed Hurricane Katrina claim the lives of
more than 1,000 individuals in Louisiana. This was in
large part due to a failure of leadership at the federal,
state and local level. Beyond that, it reminded the
nation that leadership priority number one should
always be the preservation of life, and that we should
never repeat the same mistakes.
More recently, on Oct. 29, we were reminded of a natural disaster that also required leadership in the face of
terror. The date marked the third anniversary of
Hurricane Sandy a category 5 storm that claimed the
lives of nearly 300 people. In the wake of the storm,
the countrys eyes were fixed on the state of New Jersey,
where Gov. Chris Christie urged the president and the
U.S. Congress to provide aid for those who would be
hardest hit by the storm. Christie also made vehement
calls for evacuation in the areas projected to be hit hardest by the storm.
In the aftermath of the storm, Christie worked alongside the mid-Atlantic delegations to pressure Congress
to provide emergency aid for the Federal Emergency
Management Agency the government agency tasked
with providing emergency assistance and services for
communities that experience natural disasters. Without
much needed federal funding, FEMA could not administer
food, shelter and evacuation services for the victims of
Hurricane Sandy.
At a time when some fiscal conservatives insisted on
offsetting any new funding for Hurricane Sandy recovery
efforts, Christie convinced them that there was simply
no time to have that debate because lives had been devastated by the storm. Beyond his urgent tone, the country witnessed a governor rise beyond the persona of a
typical partisan politician to that of a true leader, concerned first and foremost with the recovery of his people and their beloved state.
Christie became a leader prepared to do what was
unpopular to save lives in and beyond his state. The
mid-Atlantic delegations subsequently worked with
Christie, the White House and congressional leadership
to pass a bill that adequately funded FEMA to administer
services for those hit hardest by the storm.
Vince Lombardi once said that leaders are not born,
they are made. In previous columns, I have highlighted
the journey by which each of us is personally tested
through lifes most unpredictable trials and tribulations.
It is not until we emerge from those trials that we can
truly appreciate the hurdles we have overcome. As tough
as the battles can be, the most difficult and challenging
moments often build character, faith and, sometimes,
leadership.
My hope is that our nation can follow more leaders
who are willing to do what is best for the country, rather
than for their approval ratings. Elected officials bound
by nothing more than special interests and an affinity
for power often crumble in the face of terror at any
given moment. True leaders rise to the challenge and act
in the best interest of the citizens they are elected to
serve.
I hope you will stand with me in supporting leaders
who are willing to act in the best interest of their constituents regardless of how unpopular the path.

State settles debt collection


lawsuit with JPMorgan Chase
By Don Thompson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO The nations largest bank will pay


$100 million to settle a California lawsuit alleging it used
illegal methods to collect debts from more than 125,000
credit card holders, the states attorney general announced
Monday.
JPMorgan Chase & Co., the largest U.S. bank by assets,
will pay an estimated $10 million to consumers in
California as part of a previously announced $50 million
national agreement, and will pay another $50 million in
penalties to the state to settle a 2013 lawsuit.
It is agreeing to change practices that the state says violated California law and led the company to file thousands
of debt collection lawsuits between 2008 and 2011. They
include collecting incorrect amounts, selling bad credit card
debt, and running what Attorney General Kamala Harris
office calls a debt collection mill that robo-signed court
documents.

Hillsdales comeback kid


Athlete of the Week

By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Between Hillsdales mighty offense and Half


Moon Bays stingy defense, something had to
give in last Fridays battle for first place in the
Peninsula Athletic League Ocean Division.
As those on hand at one of the most
thrilling PAL football games of the season
found out, though the competitive makeup
of Hillsdale quarterback Brett Wetteland has
absolutely no give in it whatsoever.
That was the makeup the Knights needed to
lead them back for a 34-20 fourth-quarter
deficit. And thats precisely what they got.
Because for Wetteland, seeing his team with its
back up against the wall meant only one thing
time to shine.
Im just thinking, we can do this,
Wetteland said. We just need to stay positive
now and win every snap. And I told [the team],
we got this, we can win this game.
What ultimately won the game 37-34 was a
last-second field goal by Josh Janakes. But it
was Wettelands grace under fire that not only
marched the Knights into field-goal range, it
was the catalyst in their mounting three consecutive scoring drives in the games final 10
minutes. It is also the reason he has been
named the Daily Journal Player of the Week.
Wettelands night started off not so hot. With
one minute remaining in the first half, the senior had completed just 6 of 13 passes for 46
yards. When the dust cleared on the dramatic
comeback, though, Wetteland totaled a seasonhigh 315 yards with three touchdowns, including a 10-for-13 passing clip in the second half.
The comeback mentality is something that
was engrained in Wetteland two years ago during his first varsity season. Then a sophomore, Wetteland heeded the words of Hillsdale
head coach Mike Parodis raccoon up speech.
When a raccoon is in the corner, he doesnt just give it up, he fights until he cant
fight no more, Wetteland said of Parodis
words of wisdom.
Half Moon Bays defense has cornered its
share of teams this season. Entering into play
Friday night, the Cougars had surrendered just
38 points through seven games. And they kept
not just Wetteland in check through most of
the first half, but the entire Hillsdale offense.

the Grizzlies in six games in the Western


Conference semifinals.
Curry made a steal and a driving hook shot
with 6:28 left in the third to put Golden State
ahead 75-40, and it eventually built a 46-point
lead. He knocked down a 3-pointer a minute
later and another about 30 seconds after that.
Bogut is still going through the NBAs concussion protocol after getting injured in last
Tuesdays season opener against the Pelicans.
He did a workout Sunday but still needs to
successfully get through a contact practice,
interim coach Luke Walton said.

Big game is on

Visser rst came up with the idea as he
helped produce a 10-year 9/11 anniversary tribute in Massachusetts. Visser said
he visited a number of wounded soldiers,
many who signed up for military service
following the attacks. During his visits,
he was so impressed with their dedication
to life that he invited a few to the tribute.
That got him to thinking how to give
back more to these military members
who literally gave of themselves for
their country.
He said he was moved to act based on
something his mother told he and his sister growing up.
You cannot think respect. You need to
show respect, Visser said. Most of
these guys were high school athletes.
They wanted to show they can still
remain active. [The WWAFT] is to visibly demonstrate the loss of a limb

49ers trade Vernon Davis to Denver for draft picks


By Arnie Stapleton
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. John Elway likes


to talk about the long-term vision, winning
not only now but from now on.
Coming off a 500-yard performance and a
shellacking of the Green Bay Packers, the
boss of the unbeaten Denver Broncos made
a bold move that shows hes all in for 2015.
Denvers general manager sent a pair of
late-round draft picks to the San Francisco
49ers for two-time Pro Bowl tight end
Vernon Davis on Monday, the first big

move on the eve of the leagues trading


deadline.
Elway called the 31-year-old veteran a
big weapon for us, one wholl add experience, speed and leadership to an offense that
can use more big-play ability.
Davis gives the Broncos (7-0) some firepower over the middle that Peyton Manning
has been missing since losing Julius
Thomas and Jacob Tamme to free agency,
and rookie Jeff Heuerman to a knee injury
just a week after the draft.
The 10th-year pro has 55 career touchdown catches.

The 49ers will get sixth-round picks in


2016 and 2017 and the Broncos also receive
a seventh-round pick in 2016. If Davis,
whos due about $2.3 million on the final
year of his contract, can quickly adapt to
Gary Kubiaks offense and finish strong,
the Broncos could also get a compensatory
draft pick if Davis leaves after the season
and signs elsewhere.
Denver is coming off its biggest win of
the year, a 29-10 dismantling of Green Bay
in which tight ends Owen Daniels and Virgil
Green combined for a season-best 105 yards
receiving. Before that, theyd managed just

123 yards as they had to mostly stay in and


help a battered O-line protect Manning.
Forced into multiple receiver sets more
often than Kubiak would like, the Broncos
added beefy blocker Richard Gordon to their
tight end corps last month.
With Vernon coming aboard weve got
four tight ends that will give us the ability
to do a lot of different things, Elway said.
Not only will Davis give Manning a redzone target, but his addition can take some
attention off wide receivers Demaryius

Ganos 52-yard FG lifts Panthers over Colts in OT


By Steve Reed
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. Graham Gano


kicked a 52-yard field goal in overtime to lift
the Carolina Panthers to a 29-26 win over
the Indianapolis Colts on a rain-drenched
Monday night, allowing them to remain the
NFCs only unbeaten team.
It was Carolinas 11th straight regular season victory dating back to last season.
Carolina surrendered a 17-point fourth quarter
lead as Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes in the final 7:11 of regulation and led another field goal drive at the end of regulation.
The teams traded field goals in overtime,
with Gano tying the score on a 42-yarder
with 7:50 to go. On the Colts ensuing possession, safety Roman Harper deflected
Lucks pass over the middle to Coby Fleener
and linebacker Luke Kuechly who had

Continued from page 11
Knights tailback Cameron Taylor gained
just 41 first-half rushing yards. But with the
mighty Cougars D keying on the PAL Ocean
Divisions second leading rusher, Wetteland
ignited the aerial attack with a 73-yard touchdown strike to junior wide receiver Isaiah
Cozzolino to stake the Knights to a 13-6 lead.
After the Cougars answered with a touchdown in the waning seconds to make it 13-12,
Wetteland and Cozzolino nearly went uptown
again; on the final play of the half, they connected for a 49-yard pass into the red zone, but
Half Moon Bay wrestled Cozzolino down at
the 8-yard line to end the half.
In the second half, however, the Knights
offense picked up right where it left off.
Our (offensive) line was a big part of it,
Wetteland said. They started getting mad and
started playing harder because they were getting irritated that every time theyd turn
around, Id be on the floor.
Taylor nearly singlehandedly got Hillsdale
on the board to start the second half with three
straight rushes of 1, 10 and 46 yards, the last
of which looked less like a football play and
more like Baryshnikov in his prime with
Taylor dancing around two defenders with brilliant footwork to get into the end zone.
For Cam, you dont know if hes going to
go east, south or cut north or west, Wetteland
said. I think thats what makes him a great
runner. It just amazes us all.
But Half Moon Bay answered back by blindsiding Hillsdale with three straight scores to

point earlier in the game,
Graham Gano hit the game-winner.
Cam Newton was 16 of
35 for 248 yards with two touchdowns and
one interception. He also ran for 41 yards.
Despite surrendering a 23-6 lead in the
fourth quarter, Carolina had a chance to win
the game in overtime but Ted Ginn Jr.
dropped a wide open 56-yard touchdown
pass. Greg Olsen would bail his teammate
out with a one-handed catch to help set up
Ganos tying field goal.
Luck had been limited to 40 yards passing
ting the stage for Wettelands heroics.
It was actually a screen pass to Taylor that
kick-started the following drive, as Wetteland
drew in the Half Moon Bay rush then dumped to
his star running back who bulled for a 23-yard
gain. Four plays later, Wetteland bulls-eyed
Cozzolino for a 29-yard touchdown, closing
the Cougars lead 34-27 with 8:22 to go.
The Knights got the ball back with 3:27
remaining and Wetteland did it again, completing passes of 7 and 5 yards before hitting
Cozzolino on a fly pattern up the right side
with a textbook spiral for a 39-yard touchdown pass.
Then Hillsdales defense forced a three-andout to give Wetteland the ball back at the Half
Moon Bay 44-yard line with 21 seconds
remaining. It was just enough time for him to
peel off completions of 5, 14 and 7 yards to
advance into the red zone, setting up a 35-yard
field goal for Janakes.
Once we got to 34-34, I told [Janakes],
Im going to get you into field goal range
and youre going to win this game,
Wetteland said.
It was the second big game in as many years
Hillsdale has won on a kick. Last season, the
Knights won their rivalry game against
Aragon 14-13 on a last-second extra-point
kick by Eli Kertel. That win was somewhat
incidental, however, as Aragon had already
wrapped up the PAL Ocean Division title.
This year, though, it is Hillsdale that is
proving the team of destiny. And now, the
Knights are just one game away Fridays

Mazzoncini Stadium from clinching the
title outright.
Theres not words that can explain it,
Wetteland said. All the blood, sweat and tears
weve put in this season and now its all coming together.

and two interceptions through the first three


quarters, but caught fire in the fourth quarter.
He threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to
Andre Johnson and an 8-yard TD strike to
Fleener to bring the Colts to within the 23-20.
The Panthers, with the No. 1 running
game in the league, couldnt pick up a first
down to put the game away and were forced to
punt the ball away.
Luck drove the Colts back down the field,
completing a fourth-and-10 pass to Griff
Whalen to keep the chains moving. On a
third-and-4 from the 6, Luck fired into the
end zone and Kuechly nearly came down with
an interception but the ball fell out of his
hands on a wet field with two seconds left.
Adam Vinatieri hit the third of his four
field goals as time expired to send the game
into overtime. He then gave the Colts a 2623 lead on a 50-yarder with 12:04 left in the
extra period.

NFL brief
Oakland city leaders to ponder
new plan for Raiders stadium
OAKLAND Oakland city officials are
taking yet another run at financing a new
stadium to keep the Raiders in town.
Assistant City Administrator Claudia
Cappio said Monday that the city has hired a
stadium consultant to come up with new
financing options that wont include taxpayer money to build a $900 million stadium.
The Raiders say they need about $400
million in public money for a new stadium
to replace the dilapidated Oakland
Coliseum. Local leaders are reluctant to
pitch in given that they are still paying off
debt from a 1995 remodel that brought the
Raiders back from Los Angeles.
Cappio said a consultant is expected to
present a proposal privately to the City
Council and to the Alameda Board of
Supervisors, perhaps as soon as this week.

the views from CSMs
College Heights Stadium,
he stopped looking for a
venue.
Weve never had a
more spectacular and tting venue for one of our
games, ever, said Visser,
who said the games have
Roger
drawn upwards of 10,000
Staubach
fans in the past.
I cant think there is a more tting place
than CSM.
Visser pointed out that the WWAFT is not
afliated with the NFL, but he said in addition to honoring wounded veterans, he
wanted to provide an opportunity for people
of the local communities a chance to experience an NFL-sized celebration that most will
not get an opportunity to see or attend rsthand. Only the rich and well-connected produce and get invited to the big NFL shindigs
in the host city, while many of the community are stuck on the outside looking in.
There is a lot going on during Super
Bowl Week. But there isnt a whole lot for
the general population, Visser said. For
most of the people in this area, hopefully
this will be the best Super Bowl experience
they have.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

Given the roster of


expected and potential
NFL alumni expected to
take part in the game,
there is a chance you
might not nd more NFL
alumni assembled in one
spot the entire week leading up to the Super Bowl.
Well have about 50
Snoop Dogg
alumni at this game,
Visser said, which includes a whos who of
the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Former
Dallas Cowboys great and Hall of Famer
Roger Staubach, quarterbacks the WWAFT.
Staubach won the Heisman Trophy while
playing for the Naval Academy before honoring his four-year commitment to the service, including a tour of Vietnam.
Over 400 alumni have participated (in
this event over the years). To a man, they
respect our wounded warrior amputees,
Visser said. There wont be a place in San
Francisco (during Super Bowl Week) with
more alumni (than the WWAFT game).
In addition, rap legend Snoop Dogg will
play, as will longtime television personality
Montel Williams, who served in both the
Navy and Marines before embarking on a television career. ESPN personality Kenny Mayne
has also become a regular at WWAFT games.

And the fans will get a chance to get up


close and personal with both the NFL legends, as well as the WWAFT players.
Because all the veterans have had amputations, the game is a modied version of
football. The eld is only 80 yards long and
play is conned to the space between the
sideline and the hash marks closest to the
sideline.
The good news is, that will allow plenty
of seating to be placed directly on the eld,
on the track surrounding the elds and the
stands at CSM.
[Seating] was my initial apprehension,
Wolf said. (But) we believe we can accommodate all the spectators.
Added Visser: I cant think of a more tting place than CSM (to host this game). I
do hope this community will come out and
show respect (to our wounded veterans).

At this point last year, the
Raiders were 0-8 and on their way
to 10 straight losses to open the
season and 16 in a row overall. But
with a new mindset instilled by
Jack Del Rios coaching staff, a
potent offense led by emerging
star Derek Carr and an improved
defense anchored by Woodson and
Khalil Mack, the Raiders are in
their best position since going to
the Super Bowl in 2002.
While Oakland reached a 5-4
mark in 2010 before finishing 8-8
and made it to 7-4 the following
year before a late-season collapse
left them at .500 again and out of
the playoffs, the success this season appears to be more lasting.
With Carr playing better than
any quarterback for the Raiders
since Rich Gannon was winning
the MVP in 2002, Oakland has a
core to build around with fellow
youngsters like Mack, Amari
Cooper, Latavius Murray, TJ
Carrie, Gabe Jackson and Mario
Edwards Jr.
But they also know there is
plenty of work to be done to
achieve their goal of a playoff
berth.
We cant come out next week
and not do the same thing, left
tackle Donald Penn said. Weve
got to keep this thing going, and
thats the thing Im trying to
express to the team. Lets keep
building.

Studies question impact of menu calorie counts


By Lauran Neergaard
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Tracking calories at chain restaurants


is supposed to become easier next year, but new studies
raise questions about whether the counts actually make a
difference for diners and eateries.
Some restaurants already post calorie counts. New York
City was first in the country to require it, and six years
later researchers say seeing the caloric consequences didnt automatically lead to leaner choices.
New York University researchers used receipts and surveys at McDonalds, Burger King, KFC and Wendys to
track customer purchases. In New York City where menus
were labeled, calories averaged between 804 and 839 per
meal, essentially the same as the 802 to 857 calories at
fast-food locations in New Jersey that didnt post calorie
content.
Beginning in December 2016, chain restaurants and certain other retailers that sell prepared food will have to list
calorie content on their menus.
As to whether consumers will take notice, researchers
reported Monday that just over a third of customers
noticed calorie counts on the chains menus last year,
compared with about half when the law took effect in
2008, and 9 percent claimed to use them to order fewer
calories.
There may be greater effect at different kinds of restaurants, cautioned associate professor Brian Elbel of NYU
Langone Medical Center.
A second study, also in the journal Health Affairs, raises
the possibility that menu labeling might have more of an
effect on what restaurants offer than on customer ordering
habits.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins University used a database that collects calorie content from 66 large U.S.
chains to compare menus from restaurants that voluntarily
list calorie counts in all their locations around the country
McDonalds, Chick-Fil-A, Panera Bread, Starbucks and
Jamba Juice with the rest.
Menus of the voluntarily posting chains averaged nearly 140 fewer calories per item, researchers reported.
While these restaurants do boast calorie-packed products, there are more healthier options on those menus
that bring down the per-item average, said study co-author
Julia Wolfson, a fellow at Hopkins Bloomberg School of
Public Health.
She couldnt tell whether those chains had more lowercalorie items all along or introduced them ahead of menu
labeling. But new items they introduced in 2014 had nearly 110 fewer calories on average than competitors new
menu items, she said.
Calorie counts aside, a third study shows parents will
order healthier kids options. Tufts University researchers
examined purchases at 13 Silver Diner locations after the
regional chain changed its kids menu in 2012, adding
healthier entrees and sides and removing fries and soda,
which could be substituted upon request.
More than half of kids orders contained fries before the
menu change. That dropped to 21 percent over the past
year, while nearly two-thirds instead came with strawberries.

Calorie counts aside, a third study shows parents will order healthier kids options.

geted to pay in support of the Big Lift, will
go to support students in the South San
Francisco, Cabrillo and La Honda-Pescadero
unified school districts, as well as the
Jefferson Elementary School District.
The Big Lift is a collaborative initiative
between the county Board of Supervisors,
the Silicon Valley Community Foundation
and the San Mateo County Office of
Education to improve access to preschool,
in an effort to improve education opportunities for all students.
The four districts receiving a portion of
the funds are the first in a series of efforts
the representatives of the Big Lift have
identified to support.
Preschools in South San Francisco will
receive nearly $2 million to serve almost
400 young students, through a collaboration with the Peninsula Family Service and
the city of South San Francisco, and the

accounts of soccer goalies dying from cancer at a young age or the fields getting so
hot it would melt shoe soles. Furthermore,
many of the studies previously conducted
where either not comprehensive or in some
cases, sponsored by synthetic turf industry
groups, Hill said.
SB 47 originally required a study concerning the adverse health impacts to be conducted by the Office of Environmental
Health Hazard Assessment in consultation
with other state health and environmental
departments. Now, the OEHHA has begun
the study on its own and the bill would
remain in effect until its completed in
2018.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

other school districts will split more than


$2 million to offer similar services to students in the northern portion of the county,
as well as along the coast.
Erica Wood, chief community impact officer with the Silicon Valley Community
Foundation, lauded the boards commitment
and support to improving early education
opportunities for the countys young learners.
This funding from the county of San
Mateo is a crucial part of ensuring that all
children in San Mateo County get the early
education they need to read successfully by
third-grade, she said in an email.
San Mateo County Superintendent Anne
Campbell echoed some of those sentiments
in an email.
We are so excited to get started on the
real work of helping more children gain
access to high-quality preschool in San
Mateo County so we can jump-start their
learning to read, she said. The Big Lift is
a true community partnership that will reap
tremendous benefits for all of San Mateo
County.
Research shows students who have access

to preschool and early education programs


are proven to be more academically successful, both initially and in subsequent years,
said Wood.
A focus of the Big Lift is to improve reading and language skills in students by thirdgrade, so they will be on track for long-term
success, said Wood.
Reading by the end of third-grade is the
most important factor in predicting students academic success in later years, she
said. Our society dearly needs more local
children to realize that success so they can
thrive as adults.
The Board of Supervisors will make its
$15 million contribution from revenue generated through Measure A, the countys halfcent sales tax approved by voters in 2012.
The payment is contingent on the Big Lift
matching the countys payment through its
own fundraising efforts.
The Big Lift has raised more than $28 mil-

lion to support its initiative, including contributions from the county, in more than
two years of fundraising, and has stated the
goal of raising more than $50 million.
Google recently donated $250,000 to the
Big Lift, as the program was identified as
one of the 15 finalists in the Google Impact
Challenge, which awards grant money to
innovative education programs throughout
the Bay Area.
The Big Lift was one of the 10 programs
selected as finalists by Google but did not
collect enough votes in an online poll to
receive a grand prize of $500,000.
Though the Big Lift did not win the
Google Impact Challenge, Wood celebrated
the effort of the program.
It was a terrific victory to have been
selected as one of the 10 most innovative
social impact projects in the San Francisco
Bay Area from a pool of more than 800
applications to the Google Impact
Challenge, she said in an email.
City Year, a program in San Jose designed
to help underprivileged children graduate
from high school, ultimately won the
Google Impact Challenge grand prize.

Hill announced his plans to continue pursuing his legislation just as OEHHA began
public outreach Monday night for a $3 million study that seeks to determine the health
impacts of using ground-up tires on childrens fields.
This study is so important because it will
look at the long-term health risks of inhaling, ingesting and getting it in abrasions
over a long period of time. And thats what
were trying to determine, so hopefully it
will show some results and we can move forward with some conclusive results, Hill
said. But in the interim, I think its irresponsible for school districts or municipalities to move forward with crumb rubber
fields knowing what we know today.
Although the bill sat stagnant at the end
of the last legislative session, it has already
left an impact prompting various entities to
reconsider their plans for artificial turf.

The city of San Mateo was well on its way


to a multi-million dollar synthetic turf project at Los Prados Park when Hills bill
caused the council to further consider its
options. Instead of going with recycled
tires, the city opted to use a manufactured
virgin rubber called EPDM.
Schools from around the state have also
been ditching the used tire infill in favor of
more natural materials such as coconut
fibers, rice husks, cork, sand and virgin rubber, according to Hills office.
Hill said the national notoriety the issue
has received is prompting change. While
federal officials previously said crumb rubber was safe, further studies and accounts
have changed.
Multiple studies have also shown harmful
levels of lead in the crumb rubber as well as
high concentrations of cancer-causing
chemicals measured in the air above the

fields, according to Hills office.


Hill said its telling that crumb rubber has
been banned by the Los Angeles Unified
School District as well as the New York
Citys Department of Parks and Recreation
respectively some of the largest in the
nation.
Earlier this year, Elliot Kaye, chairman of
the U.S. Product Safety Commission testified before Congress that he no longer supports a 2008 statement that crumb rubber is
safe to play on, according to Hills office.
The federal government said in 2008 oh
theyre safe, now theyve hedged their bets
and are saying theyre not safe anymore,
Hill said. This bill is just saying if youre a
school district or municipality, you have to
consider alternatives to crumb rubber. You
dont have to use it, but you have to consider it at a public meeting. And there are
alternatives available.

Federal jury to settle bitter E. coli in Northwest


battle between sweeteners is Chipotles third
outbreak this year
By Brian Melley

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES Big Sugar and


Big Corn face off in court this week
in a bitter, multibillion-dollar battle
of sweeteners that boils down to a
mix of science, semantics and marketing.
Jurors in the case between sugar
processors and corn manufacturers
will take up one of nutritions most
vexing debates and confront a choice
common among some consumers:
sugar or high fructose corn syrup?
The trial starting Tuesday in federal
court grew out of efforts by the Corn
Refiners Association to rebrand its
high fructose corn syrup as corn
sugar to reverse damaging publicity
that associated it with diabetes and
obesity.
Its ad campaign featured a TV commercial with a father walking with
his daughter across a cornfield and
saying that hes reassured by experts
that high fructose corn syrup is the
same as cane sugar.
Your body cant tell the difference, he says. Sugar is sugar.
That didnt go over well with the
Western Sugar Cooperative and other

400-acre park adjacent to the ocean
and south of the Pacifica pier.
Officials with both counties started
to negotiate a 30-year lease for San
Mateo County to manage the golf
course in 2012 but a lawsuit by environmental groups alleging that San
Francisco failed to maintain the habitat for the red-legged frogs and San
Francisco garter snakes slowed those
talks.
A judge has since dismissed the lawsuit.
Supervisor Don Horsley is more
interested in managing the golf course
than buying it.
Unless they sell it to us for $1,
Horsley said Monday.
The consultant analysis, however,
will be helpful, he said.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The Corn Refiners Association hopes to rebrand its high fructose corn syrup as
corn sugar to reverse damaging publicity that associated it with diabetes and
obesity.
sugar processors, who sued the corn
refiners and Archer Daniels Midland
Co. and Cargill Inc. for false advertising. They are seeking as much as
$2 billion.
Corn refiners and the two agribusiness giants countersued, charging the
sugar industry with making false and
misleading statements that included a
comment that high fructose corn
syrup is as addictive as crack cocaine.
They are seeking $530 million.
Jurors will hear from experts on

both sides of the debate, getting a


mix of science and spin. They will
also see damning internal documents
that show what was happening
behind closed doors.
Corn refiners will present evidence
that the sugar industry was behind the
pounding that high fructose corn
syrup took in public opinion as sugar
tried to regain market share it lost
when food producers switched to the
cheaper corn product that came on the
market in the 1970s.

The clubhouse needs extensive


improvements and some of the holes
may have to be reconfigured because of
environmental hazards, he said.
Horsley said he thinks the course can
be self-sustaining.
A 2007 study by San Francisco indicated the golf course was a money loser
and poorly maintained.
Sharp Park and Poplar Creek Golf
Course at Coyote Point in San Mateo
are the only links in the county open
to the public.
Restoration of the course is estimated to cost $10 million, according to a
2009 study by the San Francisco
Recreation and Park Commission.
The 72-par course is often called the
poor mans Pebble Beach and provides views of the ocean and Mori
Point, which is part of the Golden Gate
National Recreation Area.

Ironically, one of the complaints
levied on San Franciscos parks
department is that it does a poor job of
maintaining Sharp Park.
A San Francisco park official said
Monday that there are discussions currently with San Mateo County about a
potential purchase.
For over two years we have been in
conversation with San Mateo County
about sharing operations and environmental planning responsibilities
because Sharp Park is a regional golf
course. Beyond that, it is premature to
discuss anything, Sarah Madland,
director of Policy and Public Affairs
with San Francisco Recreation and
Parks, wrote in an email.
In 2012, while the two counties were
negotiating lease terms, Supervisor
Dave Pine said: Theres no doubt that
San Mateo County could manage the
course better.
Horsley described the course then as
the heart and soul of Pacifica.

SEATTLE Chipotle closed 43 of its Pacific Northwest


locations after the chains third foodborne illness this
year sickened about two dozen people prompting
renewed scrutiny of a company that touts its use of fresh
ingredients and farm-sourced fare.
Cases of the bacterial illness were traced to six of the
casual Mexican food restaurants, but the company voluntarily closed down all of its locations in Washington and
the Portland, Oregon, area as a precaution as an investigation continues.
Three people in the Portland area and 19 people in western Washington have gotten sick with E. coli as of
Friday. Seventeen of them had eaten at a Chipotle restaurant during the past few weeks. Eight people have been
hospitalized but no deaths have been reported.
About a dozen more people were being tested for E. coli
on Monday in Washington state and health officials were
aggressively searching for more cases, said Dr. Scott
Lindquist, state epidemiologist for communicable diseases for the Washington State Department of Health.
Lindquist does not expect the number of sick people to
increase dramatically, and he said they are not positive
yet that the outbreak is limited to people who ate at
Chipotle restaurants over the past few weeks.
Those sickened in the E. coli outbreak range in age
from 11 to 61. Lindquist did not have any detailed information about their medical conditions.
Chipotle has faced other recent foodborne outbreaks. A
salmonella outbreak linked to tomatoes sickened dozens
of people in Minnesota beginning in August, according
to state health officials. In California, health workers
said norovirus sickened nearly 100 customers and
employees at a Chipotle restaurant in Simi Valley in midAugust.
Having three problems in a couple of months means
that Chipotle is not paying attention to food safety like
it should, said Bill Marler, a Seattle food safety lawyer
who built his national reputation with the 1993 E. coli
outbreak at Seattle Jack in the Box restaurants.
The common denominator in most food-borne illness
outbreaks is poor food safety, Marler said.
People should not assume a company that focuses on
local and fresh ingredients like Chipotle is going
to be immune from food safety issues, he said.

BASIN
Continued from page 1
sustainable basin. Because thats the
goal, to make sure we dont do anything to [jeopardize] it.
Several agencies either already
draw from the basin, plan to use it in
emergencies or are expanding their
use such as East Palo Alto, Menlo
Park and an unknown number of
homeowners in Atherton who have
private wells, Sandkulla said. An initial review of the basin showed its
not extremely productive and only
offers maybe 10 million gallons a
day. Although new state laws regulate
higher priority basins, the San
Mateo aquifer is considered a low priority since no communities solely
rely on it and it doesnt yield much,
Sandkulla said.
Therefore, unlike its neighboring
basins the Westside Groundwater
Basin to the north and the Santa Clara
Basin to the south there isnt a
management plan overseeing the San
Mateo Plain Sub-basin.
Now, San Mateo County has opted
to take the lead in conducting a study
of the basin that will ideally inform a
multi-agency agreement on how to
best manage the resource.
There are a variety of ways humans
can negatively affect the basin.
Drawing from it without letting it
recharge poses risk of saltwater
intruding into the basin or draining
nearby surface water like the San
Francisquito Creek, which is habitat
to many creatures. Prior to the Hetch
Hetchy system, the basin was heavily depleted and portions of the county sunk as much as a foot, said Peter
Drekmeier, policy director of the
Tuolumne River Trust.
Were seeing that theres the
potential for pumping to get back to
the level that it was in the 1950s,
before the Hetch Hetchy line was providing water from the Sierras. And at
that point, we were overdrafting the
basin and there was about a foot of
land subsidence. So we think its
important to get ahead of the problem, Drekmeier said. With this
four-year drought that were in and
with climate change, its very likely
to impact precipitation in the future.
I think now is the time to get a handle
on this and plan for a time when
theres going to be less surface water
available.

Studying the resource


The county is currently seeking
experts to conduct an assessment of
the basin that could help inform how
it should be managed, said Heather
Forshey, director of the countys

Environmental Health Services.


Factors will include evaluating the
hydrogeological condition, such has
how much it can yield; where surface
water interacts with the basin, such
as how saltwater from the Bay could
taint it; identifying threats to the
basin and its quality such as the number of private wells drawing from it,
and how to recharge the basin.
Ultimately, the consultants would
help identify a long-term strategy to
maintaining a sustainable groundwater resource through policies and
cooperation amongst varying entities, Forshey said.
What we want to do is get a good
idea of what the basin looks like in
its entirety and what is possible,
Forshey said. Its critical to have all
the municipalities and the water districts and the wastewater districts
communicating together to develop a
large-scale solution. Were hoping
to get a lot of answers and were hoping it will inspire a lot of additional
questions and ideas on how to best
use this resource.
Part of the report will include identifying who is currently reliant on
the basin. While the county oversees
permits for new wells, many were
drilled prior to the program and there
isnt firm data on how many individuals use the basin.
What is known, is that East Palo
Alto is planning to reinstate a well
and create a new one to help sustain
the city that doesnt receive a lot of
water from SFPUC, said Drekmeier
and Sandkulla.
Drekmeier said its crucial that the
basin be studied in collaboration
with the surrounding entities to avoid
negative
impacts.
The
San
Francisquito Creek, which is habitat
to endangered steelhead trout,
appears to be a main source of
recharge for the basin. Depleting the
basin could harm the creek and even
impact the neighboring Santa Clara
Basin on which Santa Clara
County residents are extremely
reliant, said Drekmeier.

Opportunities underground
There are a variety of ways in which

the basin can be used, particularly in


regards to storing water. Sandkulla
said her agency is interested in considering how it could incorporate
recycled water into the basin.
Typically, wastewater would undergo significant treatment before being
injected into the basin where it would
be further refined through a natural
filtration process, said Sandkulla and
Drekmeier.
Another project underway is the
California Water Service Company
seeking grants to study the efficacy
of drilling for brackish water. Cal
Water serves thousands of residences
in San Mateo, San Carlos, South San
Francisco, Colma, Woodside, Portola
Valley, Atherton and unincorporated
portions of the county, Redwood City
as well as Menlo Park.
To diversify its portfolio, Cal
Water seeks to drill into the basin for
brackish groundwater and if the
aquifer is fruitful enough, possibly
create the countys first desalinization plant.
The treatment plant could cost
between $111 million to $141 million, and the entire operation would
include several wells. Drilling into a
brackish groundwater basin could
have fewer environmental impacts
than compared to an open-bay
desalinization project where its
pulled from an open body of water,
Sandkulla said previously.

Next steps and timeline


Cal Water is awaiting approval
from the California Public Utilities
Commission before it can even start
investigating a drill project.
The county is soliciting bids from
consultants to oversee its assessment
and the Board of Supervisors is
expected to vote on a contract early
next year, Forshey said. Ultimately,
the thorough study will likely take
years, she added.
BAWSCA, which advocates for the
interests of its 26 member agencies
that purchase wholesale water from
the SFPUC, will host another stakeholder meeting in December.
Sandkulla said shes thrilled the
county has taken a proactive role and
ideally, those with an interest in the
basin will continue to collaborate
while sharing information about the
San Mateo Plain Sub-basin.
These kinds of things take a long
time, which is why its important to
start before you have a problem while
theres interest and while you have
stakeholders that are committed to
it, Sandkulla said. The basin cant
replace the Hetch Hetchy system, but
it can augment it.

Section 1 : FINDINGS
The City Council of the City of Millbrae at its meeting of August
25, 2015 adopted amendments to Chapter 10.10 of the Millbrae Municipal Code to clarify which public authority signs are
exempt from the City's Sign Regulations. The City Council
hereby accepts the recommendation of the Planning Commission, as set forth in the minutes of that body and presented in
the staff report for the City Council agenda of October 13, 2015
finding that the proposed additional amendment is necessary
to align the regulations related to prohibited signs with those
now applicable to exempt signs adopted pursuant to Ordinance
No. 753.
Section 2 : AMENDMENT TO SECTION 10.10.340
Section 10.10.340 of the Millbrae Municipal Code is hereby
amended in the manner and to the extent set forth below, such
that paragraph G reads as follows:
...
G. Outdoor advertising signs or structures in any zoning district; however, a sign erected and maintained by public authority, or any third party authorized by the public authority, on
property owned or controlled by the public authority may be
permitted through design review and a use permit consistent
with section 10.10.350(B);
...
Section 3 : ENVIRONMENTAL FINDINGS.
Prior to the adoption of Ordinance No. 753, the City prepared
an Initial Study of the impacts of that previous amendment to
Section 10.10.350 pursuant to the California Environmental
Quality Act. Based on the Initial Study, on August 18, 2015, the
City Council adopted a Negative Declaration that confirmed
that the amendment to Section 10.10.350 would not have potential for any significant environmental impacts. Since this ordinance aligns the regulations in Section 10.10.340 with the
previously approved amendments to Section 10.10.350, the
amendments to Section 10.10.340 do not have the potential for
any significant environmental impacts.
Section 4 : EFFECTIVE DATE; PUBLICATION; POSTING.
This ordinance shall be in full force and effect thirty days from
and after its passage. Within 15 days of its passage, this ordinance shall be published once in a newspaper of general circulation printed and published in the County of San Mateo and
circulated in the City of Millbrae.
INTRODUCED at a regular meeting of the City Council of the
City of Millbrae held on October 13, 2015.
PASSED and ADOPTED at a regular meeting of the City
Council of the City of Millbrae held on October27, 2015 by the

Mystery, confusion surround


Russian plane crash in Egypt
By Dmitry Lovetsky
and Vladimir Isachenkov
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia


Mystery and confusion surrounded the
final moments of a Russian jetliner
that plummeted suddenly from high
altitude to the Egyptian desert, killing
all 224 people aboard. The airline
Monday ruled out pilot error or a technical fault, but Russian aviation officials dismissed those comments as
premature.
Some aviation experts raised the
possibility that a bomb on board the
Metrojet Airbus A321-200 brought it
down, while others cited an incident in
2001 when the aircraft grazed the runway with its tail while landing.
James Clapper, the U.S. director of
national intelligence, said that while
there is no direct evidence of any terrorist involvement yet, it couldnt be
excluded that the plane was brought
down by Islamic State extremists in
the Sinai Peninsula.
Its unlikely, but I wouldnt rule it
out, he told reporters in Washington.
Asked if a terrorist attack could be
ruled out, President Vladimir Putins
spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said: No
versions could be excluded.
The Metrojet was flying at 31,000
feet over the Sinai when it crashed
Saturday only 23 minutes after taking

REUTERS

Airbus A321 plane, operated by Russian airline Kogalymavia, in the companys
office in Moscow, Russia.
off from the Egyptian Red Sea resort of
Sharm el-Sheikh for St. Petersburg
with mostly Russian passengers.
Metrojet firmly denied that the crash
could have been caused by either equipment failure or crew error.
The only possible explanation
could be an external impact on the airplane, Metrojets deputy director
Alexander Smirnov told a news conference in Moscow. When pressed for
more details, Smirnov said he was not
at liberty to discuss them because the
investigation was ongoing.

Asked if the plane could have been


brought down by a terrorist attack, he
said only that anything was possible.
But Russias top aviation official,
Alexander Neradko, dismissed the
companys statement as premature and
unfounded.
In televised comments from Egypt,
Neradko said it would be possible to
draw conclusions about the crash only
after experts examined the planes
flight data and cockpit voice recorders
and studied the wreckage.

EPA: Volkswagen cheated second time on pollution tests


By Matthew Daly and Tom Krisher
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Volkswagen
cheated a second time on emissions
tests, programming about 10,000 cars
with larger diesel engines to emit
fewer pollutants during tests than in
real-world driving, according to the
U.S. government.
The German automaker installed
software designed to defeat the tests
on VW, Porsche and Audi vehicles
with six-cylinder diesel engines, the
Environmental Protection Agency and
California Air Resources Board said
Monday. While on the road, the cars
emit up to nine times more nitrogen
oxide pollution than allowed by EPA

standards,
the
agency said.
The latest charges
follow VWs admission in September
that it rigged emissions tests for fourcylinder
diesel
engines on 11 milMichael Horn lion cars worldwide,
including
almost 500,000 in the U.S. The socalled defeat device in the six-cylinder
engines was discovered by EPA and
CARB with tests put in place in late
September.
In a notice of violation sent to VW,
EPA officials said the automaker
