Sewage floods Millbrae homes
Residents search for accountability in wake of accident
By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Millbrae residents who suffered
severe home damage caused by a flood
of raw sewage from the city’s sewer
system over the weekend are now
scrambling for assistance to recover
from the traumatic incident.
Toilets unexpectedly overflowed
through the homes of three properties
Saturday, March 5, in the neighborhood of El Bonito Way, due to the

alleged negligence of a company
working on the city’s sewer lateral
system, according to a city official.
Crews worked through the weekend
to clean up the mess that was left after
nearly four hours of flooding that
occurred in some homes during the
rainstorm this weekend, but property
owners seem to face a long road to
recouping the damage.
Neighbors Jason Chen and Panos
Aristakessian, both whose homes were
flooded, said their insurance compa-

nies have refused their claims, citing
gaps in their coverage policies.
Chen said he is furious over the
apparent lack of support he stands to
receive from his insurer.
“That part was worse than the sewage
spill,” he said.
Peter Vorametsanti, Millbrae’s interim director of Public Works, claimed
the flooding was caused by Sewer Rat,

As delicate coastal bluffs across the
San Mateo County have suffered severe
erosion this El Niño season, Half
Moon Bay officials are proactively
preparing to replace a pedestrian

along the California Coastal Trail.
On Tuesday, March 8, the city’s
Planning Commission will consider
applying for a Coastal Development

But moving the bridge is just one
component of an overarching problem, said Community Development
Director John Doughty. The city must
also study possible remedies to slow
erosion of the bluffs at the gully, as
well as along portions of the coastal
trail further north.

is expected to exacerbate, has recently

New compost law begins
for businesses, apartments
RethinkWaste urges customers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

A new California law will soon require
more businesses and residents of large
multi-family apartment buildings to begin
composting in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
RethinkWaste is reaching out to customers to announce the state’s new organic
waste recycling law, Assembly Bill 1826,
kicks in April 1.
The law requires commercial or public
entities, hospitals, stores, restaurants,
industrial businesses and multi-family
complexes with five or more units that
generate at least eight cubic yards of
organic waste per week to begin composting.
The law “is related to the California
Global Warming Solutions Act and it’s
been determined that the organic material
going to landfills generates methane,
which is a greenhouse gas 23 times more
potent in trapping heat in the atmosphere
than carbon dioxide,” said RethinkWaste
Recycling Programs Manager Cliff
Feldman. “So while the law does have a
significant impact on waste reduction, saving landfill space and increasing recycling, the impetus behind the law is related
to climate change.”
Compostable organics include food,
leaves, grass, tree branches, non-hazardous wood and other landscape trimmings. However, multi-family dwellings
are not required to have a food waste diversion program.
While the law initially targets large
organic waste generators, it then phases in
smaller contributors over the next three
years as a means to help the state reach its
goal of 75 percent waste diversion from
landfills by 2020.
Starting Jan. 1, 2017, those that generate four cubic yards of organic waste per
week will be ordered to start composting
and by 2019, those who generate four cubic
yards of solid waste, or garbage, per week
must start as well.
RethinkWaste is a joint powers authority
that
serves
Atherton,
Belmont,
Burlingame, East Palo Alto, Foster City,
Hillsborough, Menlo Park, Redwood City,
San Carlos, San Mateo, portions of the
county and the West Bay Sanitary District.
Last year, nearly 118,000 tons of waste
from businesses in its service area was sent
to a local landfill — nearly a third of that
was made up of food scraps and other
organics that could have been composted,
according to RethinkWaste.
Feldman noted financial incentives for
composting and a range of large business-

Judge pushes back PG&E
criminal trial stemming from blast
SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge has
pushed back Pacific Gas & Electric Co.’s
trial on criminal charges stemming from the
deadly 2010 gas pipeline explosion in San
Bruno.
U. S. District Court Judge Thelton
Henderson Monday set the new trial date
three weeks later on April 12, but said even
that would likely be postponed.
PG&E attorney Steven Bauer says the
government had been slow to turn over documents. Prosecutors disputed that contention.
Prosecutors have charged PG&E with multiple counts of pipeline safety code violations and one felony count of obstruction of
justice. PG&E has pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors say PG&E tried to mislead
investigators about pipeline testing procedures it was following at the time of the
explosion. The blast killed eight people.
Henderson Monday also granted PG&E’s
request to have prospective jurors fill out a
questionnaire to screen for bias.

es already participate in its BizSmart
organics program. RethinkWaste doesn’t
charge for composting, therefore a company’s or customer’s garbage bills could be
reduced, he noted.
Composting customers include a
Burlingame chocolate factory; Sky Chef,
which serves at the San Francisco
International Airport; Gilead Sciences in
Foster City; the Facebook campus; a local
Costco; the Crystal Springs Golf Course;
and Parkside Towers, a large multi-family
housing complex. There are currently
about 9,000 businesses in the service area
and Feldman estimated possibly 700 to
900 could be required to abide by the new
law.
“For this first wave of compliance, we’re
going to determine exactly where all the
businesses [that must comply] are. But
we’re confident many of the largest organics generators are subscribed to the service
and saving money,” Feldman said.
Yet, there may be some challenges as the
state and trash collectors implement the
new rule. Feldman estimated multi-family
apartments that would fall under the first
tier would typically be much larger developments with several hundred units. While
those with landscaped areas could more
easily compost yard trimmings, Feldman
noted there may be issues with collecting
food scraps or waste.
“Multi-family complexes, that’s really
an underserved area for organics material
collection,” Feldman said. “But there are a
lot of challenges with multi-family recycling in general related to the overall participation and the collection of the material in a community space, and it lends itself
to more contamination.”
Still, many are encouraging residents to
consider composting as a means to meet
both regional and statewide greenhouse
gas reduction goals.
Kathy Kleinbaum, San Mateo’s sustainability coordinator in the City Manager’s
Office, said many residents are already
doing their part.
Composting was “one of the most effective strategies included in [San Mateo’s]
Climate Action Plan and the plan did
address trying to target commercial and
multi-family properties. The city has
already been very successful in getting single-family homes to compost, I believe 97
percent of all single-family homes have
elected to have a compost bin,” Kleinbaum
wrote in an email. “Multi-family and com-

San Jose facing
$6.8 million in library fines
SAN JOSE — The city of San Jose’s
library system is facing $6.8 million in
unpaid fines across its 23 branches.
That figure is roughly five times the
amount of unpaid fines logged a few years
ago in Chicago, a city nearly three times
San Jose’s population.
It also exceeds unpaid fines at public
libraries in Oakland, which has $3 million
in outstanding fines, and San Francisco,
which stands at $4.6 million, the newspaper reported.
Officials are now talking about reducing
fines, which are higher than in other Bay
Area library systems, or giving people
amnesty on their fines.
When Chicago’s Public Library system
held an amnesty program in 2012 it
retrieved 101,301 overdue items, valued at
approximately $2 million. More than
40,000 patrons also got their library cards
reinstituted.

mercial are much tougher nuts to crack
because they were often built without
available space for compost bins. In addition, there are more health and safety
issues that need to be considered for higher
volumes of food scraps.”
Another challenge is determining who
exactly should be complying with the new
law. Unless they’re subscribing to compost collection, it’s difficult to gauge
exactly how much organics are being generated, Feldman said.
So while the state has started by creating
new requirements for those responsible for
generating the most organic waste, over
time others will also have to fall in line,
Feldman said.
“Eventually, it will impact the smaller
complexes, because the threshold goes
down Jan. 1. So it’s our goal to do a lot of
outreach and research during this calendar
year to position those businesses well and
provide them with the assistance they need
to comply,” Feldman said. “Exactly how
we’re supposed to implement this law and
ensure compliance, well, there’s still very
much going to be a learning curve.”

Coastal apartments to be demolished
By Keith Burbank

Around the state
Former Head Start leader
takes over California Assembly
SACRAMENTO — Speaker Anthony
Rendon, a former Head Start director who
ascended to the chamber’s top spot Monday,
says he plans to use his
new role to steer the
Legislature toward initiatives that expand educational programs for
California’s 2.5 million
impoverished children,
raise California’s miniAnthony
mum wage and increase
Rendon
voter participation.
The Democrat from Paramount, south of
Los Angeles, was elected by his colleagues
last September and sworn into the leadership job on Monday. He serves at the will
of the Democrats who control the
Assembly.
“I worked in early childhood education
for 20 years,” Rendon, 48, told reporters
after the Capitol ceremony. “I saw the
impact that that has on families, I saw the
impact that that has long-term on children
and not only their educational attainment
but also their health.”

BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

An apartment building at risk of falling
off a cliff and onto a beach below in
Pacifica is scheduled to be demolished
starting
Thursday,
city
officials
announced.
A fence was set to be installed around the
building at 320 Esplanade Ave. Monday
because of the threat to public safety and
the environment.
The building was built in the 1960s and
is made partly of hazardous materials such
as asbestos and lead. Beachgoers are at risk
of being hit by debris from above.
“We want to get ahead of it, ” City
Manager and Director of Emergency
Management Lorie Tinfow said.
It’s pretty unusual for public money to be
used to demolish a privately owned building, Tinfow said. But the threat to the public and the environment is high and the
owner cannot or will not take responsibility for the building.
Should the building fall to the beach, the
cost to clean up the remains would be 10 to
20 times the cost of demolition, Tinfow
said. The cleanup would involve using
cranes to remove debris from the beach 80
feet below the top of the cliff.
Tinfow said the estimated cost to demolish the building is $200,000.
Storm-driven coastal erosion prompted
city officials to mark the 20-unit building

Pacifica man pleads no
contest to killing pedestrian
A Pacifica man pleaded no contest Monday to fleeing after hitting and killing a pedestrian with
his truck in Daly City in 2014.
Joro Petrovmoray, 41, entered
the plea in the courtroom of Judge
Elizabeth Lee as he was about to
stand trial for hit-and-run causing
death, San Mateo County District
Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said. In
exchange
for
the
plea,
Petrovmoray faces a sentence of
no more than two years in prison.
Petrovmoray struck and killed
77-year-old Jose Rosel, who was
crossing Skyline Boulevard in a
crosswalk near Westridge Avenue
at about 11:30 p.m. on Dec. 4,
2014, prosecutors said.
After the crash, Petrovmoray
fled out of fear that he would be
held responsible for the collision. Rosel was pronounced dead
at the scene, but witnesses provided investigators with a good
description of the Ford F-150
truck that hit him.
Daly City police released the
description publicly and asked for
assistance in finding the truck.
That led them to an auto body
shop in San Francisco where
Petrovmoray sold the truck to
hide his involvement, prosecutors said.
He was arrested in February
2015 and charged with the single
count of hit-and-run causing
injury or death. Petrovmoray is
set to return to court for sentencing on May 7 but remains free for

now on $50,000 bail, Wagstaffe

Man who allegedly

A 25-year-old man who fled
after he allegedly stabbed a man
Friday afternoon in San Bruno

according to the San Mateo
County
District
Attorney’s
Office.
Although the suspect fled
before police arrived, officers
were able to identify him as San

At 2:08 p.m. Friday, officers
responded to the 700 block of San
Mateo Avenue for a report of a
stabbing, according to police.
Upon arrival, officers found a
victim suffering from a stab
wound to the neck.
Almeqdad and the victim knew
each other and had been involved
in an ongoing feud, police said.
Around 11:30 a. m. Saturday,
officers located Almeqdad on
Ahwahnee Drive in Millbrae.
He was arrested on suspicion of
attempted murder and assault with
a deadly weapon and was booked
into San Mateo County Jail.
The stabbing occurred at a

Around the nation
Bloomberg decides against
third-party bid for White House
NEW YORK — Former New York City Mayor Michael
Bloomberg said Monday that he will not run for president,
citing a concern that his independent bid
would hand the White House to Donald
Trump or Ted Cruz.
The billionaire, who has spent months
mulling a third-party run that would have
roiled this year’s already extraordinarily
unpredictable presidential campaign,
made his decision official through an editorial posted on the Bloomberg View
website.
Michael
Bloomberg, in ending his third and
Bloomberg
likely final flirtation with a White House
run, wrote that a three-way race could lead to no one winning a majority of electoral votes, which would send the
race to the Republican-controlled House of Representatives
— and, therefore, to one of the GOP front-runners.
“That is not a risk I can take in good conscience,”
Bloomberg wrote.

Trump’s path to victory: Both
parties’ working-class whites
By Nicholas Riccardi
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DENVER — Should he win the
Republican nomination, Donald
Trump’s most plausible path to victory
in the general election would be a GOP
map unlike any in years. He’d be relying on working class, largely white
voters in states that have long been
Democratic bastions in presidential
contests, from Maine to Pennsylvania
to Michigan.
To make that work he’d have to
thread a narrow needle — not only
holding on to those core supporters
but also softening rhetoric that has
alienated black and Latino voters and
calming those in the GOP who vow to
never vote for him.
It could be tricky, but the past eight
months have taught political professionals in both parties not to underestimate the man.
“He attracts a different kind of

voter,” said GOP pollster Frank Luntz.
“It’s a completely different equation.”
Trump has signaled he’s already
thinking about the general election,
bragging that “we’ve actually expanded the Republican Party” and slamming Hillary Clinton as part of the
political establishment that’s to
blame for the sour economy.
“She’s been there for so long, ”
Trump said after notching seven victories on Super Tuesday in states as
diverse as Massachusetts and Alabama.
“I mean, if she hasn’t straightened it
out by now, she’s not going to
straighten it out in the next four
years.”
Trump has dominated a majority of
Republican primaries by combining
his celebrity and can-do demeanor with
a message that once was off-limits in
both parties — a full-throated demand
to restrict both trade and immigration.
That’s now a potent mix for voters
from any party who’ve seen jobs van-

ish and wages stagnate in an increasingly globalized economy.
“Immigration and trade policy
changes the winners and losers, and
the people who are going to be in play
are the ones who are the losers in that
process,” said Roy Beck of Numbers
USA, which advocates limiting immigration. “This has the potential to turn
out a lot of voters.”
Trump has boasted that he could win
even Democratic strongholds like his
home state of New York. Analysts say
that’s unlikely, and he may face a
tough climb in more diverse or welleducated states like Colorado, Florida
and Virginia that have traditionally
been presidential battlegrounds.
Instead, Trump may best appeal to
the Rust Belt, from Pennsylvania
through Wisconsin, an area that’s been
a bedrock of Democratic presidential
victories but is reeling from job losses
and still struggling to recover from the
recession.

MEXICO CITY — Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto
compared the language of Republican presidential hopeful
Donald Trump to that of dictators Adolf
Hitler and Benito Mussolini in an interview published Monday, and said it has
hurt U.S.-Mexico relations.
Asked about Trump, Pena Nieto complained to the Excelsior newspaper about
“these strident expressions that seek to
propose very simple solutions” and said
that sort of language has led to “very
Enrique Nieto fateful scenes in the history of humanity.”
“That’s the way Mussolini arrived and the way Hitler
arrived,” Pena Nieto said.

Frustrated GOP lawmakers
weigh move to impeach top judges
TOPEKA, Kan. — Republican lawmakers
in Kansas, weary of conflicts with a judiciary
that has been pushing for more school spending, are beginning to act on a measure to
expand the legal grounds for impeaching
judges. The move is part of an intensified
effort in red states to reshape courts still dominated by moderate judges from earlier administrations.
A committee in the GOP-controlled Senate
plans to vote Tuesday on a bill that would
make “attempting to usurp the power” of the
Legislature or the executive branch grounds
for impeachment. Impeachment has “been a
little-used tool” to challenge judges who
strike down new legislation, said Republican
Sen. Dennis Pyle, a sponsor of the measure.
“Maybe it needs to be oiled up a little bit or
sharpened a little bit.”

Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon

He said it appeared that the training was ending and the operational phase of a suspected
attack was about to start.
The strike, which happened in the early
evening in Somalia, involved both missiles
and bombs. And Davis said the training
camp, about 120 miles north of Mogadishu,

North Korea again threatens

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea on

warning of an indiscriminate “pre-emptive

huge U.S.-South Korean military drills.
Such threats have been a staple of young
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un since he
took power after his dictator father’s death

games. Pyongyang says the drills, which

Refugees stranded in Greece
awaiting news of their fate
By Elena Becatoros
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

IDOMENI, Greece — While European leaders struggled Monday for a unified approach
to the refugee crisis, tens of thousands of
people affected by their decisions were left
stranded in Greece, with countries along the
migrant trail gradually tightening border
controls to staunch the northward flood.
The restrictions along what has become
known as the western Balkan route has left
about 13,000-14,000 people stuck on the
Greek-Macedonian border near the village of
Idomeni, and more than 36,000 people in the
financially stricken country.
The European Union held a summit meeting Monday with Turkey to try to halt the
flow of thousands of refugees and migrants
coming from the Turkish coast to nearby
Greek islands, whose proximity has made the
country the preferred route into Europe.
But while European leaders haggled in
Brussels, a punishing thunderstorm turned
much of the overcrowded Idomeni camp into
a sea of mud. Conditions are deteriorating in
the camp, which was set up only for about
2,000 people, and crews are struggling to
maintain hygiene.
More people have arrived each day, and
hundreds of small tents from aid organizations have sprung up in and around the camp,
spilling into fields and onto nearby railway
tracks and a train station platform, with
nowhere to go.
Until a few months ago, Idomeni was a
transit camp where people would stay for a
couple of days before continuing northward.
But Macedonia began tightening the controls late last year, saying other countries
farther up the line — Serbia, Croatia and
Austria — were doing the same.
First the route was closed to people considered economic migrants, with only those
from countries affected by war — Syria, Iraq
and Afghanistan — allowed to cross. Then,
in November, the Afghans were stopped, too.

Ever more stringent restrictions have
appeared since then. In recent days,
Macedonia began denying entry to Syrians
and Iraqis whose registration papers from the
Greek authorities had been signed in black
ink, rather than blue.
On Sunday, Macedonia allowed in only
people from cities deemed to have been
affected by war, meaning those from Aleppo,
for example, could cross, but not those from
Damascus, the Syrian capital.
The restrictions have led to occasional
protests by frustrated refugees who stage sitdown protests on the railway tracks, blocking freight trains.
Even though there were no trains Monday,
dozens of men, women and children sat on
the tracks holding banners, waving a German
flag and chanting, “Germany, Germany,” and
“Mama Merkel,” referring to German
Chancellor Angela Merkel, whom they consider sensitive to their plight.
“We are protesting because of the
Macedonians and because we know all of
their imports are coming from the sea on
these railway tracks,” said Syrian Abdul
Rahman, “and I, for one, if the train comes
here, I will die on these railway tracks if (the
Macedonians) don’t open the gate at the border.”
Macedonia has said it can only take in as
many people from Greece as Serbia will allow
to enter from Macedonia. Serbia has severely
restricted the flow in recent days.
This has led to about 1,500 people being
stuck on the Macedonian-Serbian border —
630 Afghans and the rest Syrians and Iraqis.
The largest bottleneck in Europe is in
Idomeni, where those in the growing tent
city say they had no choice but to flee their
homes and seek the safety of Europe, with the
dream of reconstructing their lives.
“We were stuck with a decision,” said Hala
Haddad, a 19-year-old English literature student from Syria’s battered city of Homs, traveling with her parents, older sister and
younger brother.

Project 90 rehab
Editor,
How far will Project 90 addicts need
to travel for their meetings now that
the landlord, Trans World Assurance
Company, is tearing down the building to replace it with yet more residences and offices? (“Project 90 gets
notice to vacate” in the Feb. 29 edition of the Daily Journal).
See the movie “The Casual
Vacancy,” based on the novel by J. K.
Rowling (she of Harry Potter fame),
which features the same problem. The
displaced indigent addicts in the film
must travel many miles by bus to
another center for meetings. As a
result, something dreadful happens to
a main character because of the closure of the village rehab by the
greedy, wealthy owners of the center.
I wonder how far the San Mateo
Project 90 clients will have to travel
for their meetings. It seems everybody wants to get on the lucrative
bandwagon to over-develop our city.

Unfortunately, that’s not a totally

My point is, however, that we desperately need a better melody for our

celebrate our land (America the
Beautiful comes to mind) and the
melding of our diverse multicultural
population (e pluribus unum), painful
as it’s been from time to time, is certainly worth celebrating.

Improving driving
conditions in the Bay Area
Editor,
Several months ago, Caltrans held a
contest seeking ideas to help
improve driving conditions in the
Bay Area. I thought several ideas were
good, but to improve driving conditions I feel the following needs to
happen:
1). The DMV should immediately
stop issuing driver’s licenses to people who can only drive a fully
autonomous vehicle;
2). Increase enforcement of the traffic laws related to the actions that
cause the most damage. Examples are:
failure to signal turns or change
lanes, texting while driving and
using a cellphone while driving;
3). Implement time of day ticketing. Tickets issued during rush hours
would, for example, triple in value (of
both the fine and the points); and
4. Encourage car pooling by taxing
annual driven miles over a determined
amount, like 10,000 miles. For
all miles over 10,000, impose a tax
of $0.30 per mile.

Time for a new National Anthem
Editor,
Your March 3 This Day in History
column stated that our National
Anthem was adopted 85 years
ago. Actually, this might be a good
time to consider whether it ought to
be scrapped in favor of a better version.
That is, it’s “ melody” is terrible —
unworthy of being the musical symbol of our proud, powerful nation.
The melody, after all, is that of a
British tune (The Anacreontic Song).
The lyrics — well, they’re not so
good either. Surely we deserve better. The French National Anthem’s
melody is beautiful. The Mexican
National Anthem is rather special,
too. Why not us? Even the melody of
The Nazi Horst Wessel Song is rather
special — why not adopt it, after all,
it’s no longer in use. Well, maybe not

Reopen Bridgepointe ice rink
Editor,
I’m writing to support the Save the
Rink movement in regards to the
improper closing of the Bridgepointe
ice rink. I’m a certified roller skating
instructor, so I know firsthand the
human benefits of health and fitness
as well as connection and fellowship
that recreational areas provide to its
communities. The value of that is
priceless and can’t be bought, especially for the measly $3 million offer
that SPI the developer has insulted
our city with.
SPI is arguing that they need
more/better retail space while simultaneously telling the city that retail
is dying due to online sales.
However, it doesn’t take a genius to
see that recreation and skating are
viable and necessary products that
can never be downloaded or shipped.
Therefore, they are good for business.
Let’s not lose sight of the simple
fact that SPI purchased the property
with full knowledge of the clause that
designated the property specifically
for active sports recreation use. SPI
doesn’t like that deal now and wants
to buy its way out it for a fraction of
what it’s actually worth.
SPI’s actions to close the rink two
years ago and engage a PR firm to lie
about the reason basically amounts to
the tantrum of a child who can’t have
it their way and tries to change the
rules to their benefit. They have also
delayed city meetings on the matter
three separate times. This behavior is
unacceptable from a partner and
neighbor and our local government
needs to put a stop to this and send a
message to these developers that cannot steamroll over our city and its
laws.
Our community deserves a quick and
favorable resolution to the matter.

econciling that our personal outlook on life
often dictates the joy we take from each
moment, whether good or bad, can be a difficult
truth to bear. This particularly holds true for the challenges we face in life. Just as light cannot be recognized
without darkness, without the possibility of failure, triumph would not exist. Without the possibility of defeat,
there would be no opportunity for victory.
In reflecting on the countless challenges I have faced
throughout my life, the law of impermanence comes to

law of impermanence is reflected in every living thing:
in the life cycles of a galaxy, a star, a tree, and most
important, our physical existence.”
Needless to say, we have all experienced moments in
our lives that make us question our very existence. Two

sinus headache, I struggled to muster enough energy to
get ready for work. As I began my commute in a rare

usual. After an hour of sitting
in Interstate 280 traffic, I was
concerned to see my car engine
light flashing before my eyes.
Ignoring the engine light
just long enough to get to
work, I was thankfully able to
find parking. As I exited my
vehicle and closed the door in
a hurry, my suit jacket got
caught within the car door.
After tugging my jacket for a
moment or two, a small piece
was torn clear from the seams.

Upon entering my office, the
secretary asked why I was not wearing a belt. Clueless
about what she was referencing, I looked to my waistline and realized that there was no belt to be found.
Two hours into the workday, I decided to vent about
my morning the best way I knew how, by talking it over
with my wife. I reached for my cellphone in my right
pocket and then realized I did not have it. Shrugging my
shoulders, I decided that I would go to the local coffee
shop to read the morning paper. After ordering my
morning coffee with newspaper in hand, I realized I did
not have my wallet. I had no choice but to grin at the
cashier and apologize. I humbly requested to read the
paper and return it to the shelf. She smiled, nodded and
proceeded to the next customer.
In a deep sigh of frustration, I began reading a column
that caught my attention. The column described a young
man, Jowel, born in the Democratic Republic of Congo
who underwent indescribable suffering in his attempt to
gain citizenship here in the United States. Jowel was of
Tutsi decent, a targeted minority recovering from the
Rwandan genocide of 1994 that claimed the lives of
more than 800. His family escaped war in the Congo
that has claimed the lives of almost 7 million people
within the last two decades. His father, a cattle farmer,
was murdered nonetheless. Separated from his wife and
6-month-old, Jowel was stranded in a refugee camp for
more than two years until he gained citizenship in the
United States.
Jowel faced an unfathomable life of poverty living in
the Congo. Several thousand perish daily as a result of
starvation and pervasive disease. Nevertheless, with
nothing more than a used bike and a small U.S. flag,
Jowel expressed his utmost thanks for the opportunity
he now had to make the most of his life. He eventually
obtained a job working in a bakery, enrolled in college
courses at Springfield College and has successfully
reconnected with his family.
That story brightened my outlook on the day. My cellphone, wallet and car engine were all material possessions that could be repaired or replaced. This man, however, was thankful not because of any trivial possession
he attained, but for the opportunity to live a life free
from terror, pervasive disease and poverty. In essence,
he was thankful for life itself.
Let’s face it, no one enjoys experiencing trials in our
day-to-day lives. We would each prefer to proceed
through our day free of setbacks and distractions. As
many of us can attest, that is just not the way the universe works.
Let us remember that there are those who would give
anything for the opportunities that we take for granted
on a daily basis. Let us strive to be grateful for both the
challenges and triumphs we experience in life. Without
those trials, we would never fully be able to appreciate
the most lasting and precious moments we experience in
our short time here on Earth.

Stocks posts meager gains, led by energy
By Bernard Condon

DOW JONES INDUSTRIALS

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — Stocks wavered
throughout the day but managed to
eke out modest gains Monday as
oil prices rose.
Investors bought drillers, refiners and other energy companies as
the three-week rise in crude continued. Six of 10 industry sectors
in the Standard & Poor’s 500 rose,
helping the index extend its winning streak to a fifth day.
The ride up was bumpy, though,
and the gains were slight. The
S&P 500 gained just 0.09 percent.
That was its smallest increase in
seven weeks.
“Today’s volatility is mostly
about a little profit-taking and
taking a pause after such a strong
advance in recent days,” said Jim
Paulsen, chief investment strategist at Wells Capital.
The Dow Jones industrial average increased 67.18 points, or 0.4
percent, to 17,073.95. The S&P
500 edged up 1. 77 points to
2,001.76. The Nasdaq composite,
which is heavily weighted with
technology stocks, gave up 8.77
points, or 0. 2 percent, to
4,708.25.

How Matt Damon may kickstart
China’s global movie ambitions
By Ryan Nakashima
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES — China has a
new ally in its campaign to turn
itself into a global cultural superpower: Matt Damon. And, behind
him, a good chunk of Hollywood
as well.
Chinese leaders have long
sought international cultural influence, aka “soft power,” commensurate with the nation’s economic
might. That’s brought us official
Confucian institutes scattered
across the world, billions of dollars in development aid and aweinspiring Olympic ceremonies.
But China’s own film industry
remains a mere flicker on the global screen.
Which is where Damon comes
in. Early next year, the star of
“The Martian” will headline “The
Great Wall, ” a historical epic
filmed in China with Chinese and

American stars,
a
famous
Chinese director, a cast and
crew of roughly
1, 300, a $150
million budget
and some nasty
monsters. (Not
Matt Damon to mention the
support of the
Chinese government.) If all goes
according to plan, the film could
be China’s first international
blockbuster — one that might
presage a wave of similar films
intended to present a new face of
China to the world.
That’s a lot to expect from a
decidedly unusual action flick. In
“The Great Wall,” Damon plays a
wandering European mercenary in
the pre-gunpowder era who stumbles across the titular structure and
learns what it’s really for. (Hint:
Those monsters might be
involved.)

But film-industry types on both
sides of the Pacific believe this
kind of joint venture could open
huge new opportunities for all
sides. For Hollywood, it’s about
expanding markets and investment; for the Chinese government
and private companies alike, it’s
about harnessing American stars
and storytelling to help movies
based on Chinese history, myths
and cultural icons break out onto a
global stage.
Chinese authorities “have not
made any secret of their desire to
spread and to encourage and to
develop soft power,” says Rance
Pow, president of Artisan Gateway,
a Shanghai-based research firm
that tracks the Chinese box office.
Regaling the world with made-inChina blockbusters, he says, is
one way to do so.
Hollywood naturally welcomes
Chinese investment to help fuel
its voracious movie-making
machine.

Club of New York.

Fed vice chair sees hints of
too-low inflation moving up
By Martin Crutsinger
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON —
Federal
Reserve
Vice
Chairman
Stanley Fischer said Monday that
inflation in the U.S. may be starting to tick up from too-low levels, a key condition for further
interest rate hikes.
“We may well at present be seeing the first stirrings of an
increase in the inflation rate —
something that we would like to
happen,” he said in a speech in
Washington.
However, another Fed official,
Lael Brainard, expressed uncertainty about whether an improving job market would be enough
to bolster inflation, given persistently low oil prices and a
strong dollar. Inflation has “persistently underperformed” relative
to the Fed’s target of annual price
gains of 2 percent, she said in a
separate speech Monday.
The two Fed officials’ views
underscore how the Fed is
wrestling with a prolonged period
of muted price gains and its
timetable for rate hikes. In
December, the Fed raised its key
rate from record lows.

Policymakers did not raise rates
at its January meeting, and officials are expected to leave rates
unchanged when they meet again
on March 15-16. Many analysts
don’t expect another rate hike
until June at the earliest.
During a question and answer
session, Fischer noted that prices
were being dragged by tumbling
energy prices and a strong dollar,
which reduces the cost of imports.
But he expects those factors to
fade soon, enabling inflation to
advance toward the Fed’s target.
“I think when the dollar stabilizes and oil stabilizes, we will
see inflation going very close to
2 percent,” Fischer said in his
appearance to receive a lifetime
achievement award from the
National Association for Business
Economics.
Fischer was also asked about the
possibility that a weak U.S. economy might force the Fed to
reverse course or even introduce
negative interest rates, like central banks have done in Europe
and Japan.
He said the Fed was studying
negative interest rates, but he
doubts that it would decide to use
them.

After a full day of deliberations, the panel said
the stalker was responsible for 51 percent of the

Athlete of the Week

It was the picture-perfect moment of a true
champion — Menlo senior Schuyler TilneyVolk hoisting the Central Coast Section
Division II championship trophy, waving it
overhead in the pouring rain, her emblematic smile lighting up the storm-cloud soaked
confines of San Jose’s Valley Christian
High School.
In leading the Knights to a 2-1 victory in
the CCS title game over archrival Sacred
Heart Prep, Tilney-Volk certainly earned that
moment. The senior goalkeeper singlehandedly kept the Menlo lead in tact amid
SHP’s flurry of second-half attacks.
Tilney-Volk’s performance in the championship game alone has earned her Daily
Journal Athlete of the Week honors. But her
legacy as a champion is so much greater that
just one crown.
“It felt like a fairytale ending,” TilneyVolk said of Menlo’s soccer triumph.
Oh, but what a fairytale her Menlo career
has been. Since earning her first soccer
crown as a sophomore — a co-championship with SHP after a tie in the 2013-14
CCS title game — she has gone on to win
two CCS titles and two Northern California
championships with the Menlo girls’ tennis
team. She also played two years of lacrosse,
wrapping up a league title last season.
“My mom says boxing should be my next
sport,” Tilney-Volk said.
The boxing joke isn’t just in reference to
Tilney-Volk’s diverse athletic exploits. It
actually has more to do with her physical
play in the goalkeeper’s box, especially
when facing an all-out assault like the one
SHP mounted Saturday in the second half.
SHP flaunts an exceptional offensive
attack, powered by Stanford-bound midfielder Tierna Davidson and sophomore striker
Mia Shenk. After falling behind 2-0 in the
53rd minute, the Gators threw everything
they had at the Menlo defense, starting with
a header into the keeper’s box by Davidson.
It was actually right back Eliza Crowder

When Half Moon Bay sent three wrestlers
to the CIF state championships last season,
Emilio Bautista was the only one not to win
a match. This year, he picked up a victory
before being eliminated in this third match
in the 120-pound division.
Bautista went 1-2 last Friday in Bakersfield,
finishing up a day before he would have preferred, with the state meet
spanning
through
Saturday. The senior lost
his opening match to
Selma HS’ Robert Garcia
12-4. In the consolation
bracket, he defeated San
Francisco’s AAA champion Kyle Paosansiri from
Emilio Bautista Galileo by technical fall
in the third round.
He then dropped grueling heartbreaker to
Mario Barios of Gladstone HS 4-3; after taking a 3-2 lead with 30 seconds remaining in
the match, Bautista endured a two-point
takedown in the closing seconds.
“I think he was a little disappointed but he
battled a lot of adversity this season, battling … injury,” HMB coach Sam Temko
said. “But I think he was happy becoming
[Central Coast Section] champion. He had a
great season nonetheless.”
After entering the season ranked No. 1 in
the CCS in 120s, Bautista suffered a hip
flexor injury midway through the year, causing his ranking to plummet. He fell out of
the CCS top 30 altogether before battling
back to capture the CCS championship in
120s — just the third wrestler in HMB history to win a CCS title.
HMB set a program record with five CCS
medalists this year. Four were seniors. HMB
has some talent on the rise, however, as its
junior-varsity team went undefeated in
Peninsula Athletic League dual meets this
year. The J.V. Cougars also won the PAL
tournament team championship.

SURPRISE, Ariz. — San Francisco veteran
right-hander Jake Peavy pitched much better in
his second start, but the Texas Rangers rallied
for a 6-5 victory Monday.
Peavy, who surrendered six runs on nine hits
in 1 2/3 innings Thursday against Milwaukee,
yielded two runs on five hits over three innings
against the Rangers.
“I know the other day was tough results
wise,” Peavy said. “Today I faced a better lineup

have went, ‘He’s ready.’ Then I went out there
and didn’t execute a stinking pitch in a couple

He said he threw mostly fastballs against the

Rangers.
“Today I didn’t throw many heaters,” Peavy
said. “It was good fastball command at times;
there was a good slider at times, a good changeup at times. I didn’t use them all the first time

mistake to Moustakas he looked outstanding,” Vogt said of Hahn, making his first
appearance of the spring. “I had the pleasure of facing him a few days ago and he didn’t help my confidence.”
Josh Reddick added two hits and a RBI
and Jed Lowrie added a pair of hits for the
A’s.

Starting time
Top Royals prospect Kyle Zimmer —
who pitched at USF from 2010-12 — went
three innings in his second start of the
spring. The right-hander had thrown two
innings in his first appearance.
“I worked on throwing more changeups
and I was just missing off the plate and had
to come back with fastballs,” Zimmer said.
“That’s when I got into some trouble. But I
got to pitch in situations.”
After making 17 relief appearances (2-0,
1.39) at the Single-A and Double-A level
last year, Zimmer returned to the starting
rotation for his final seven appearances (15, 3.41), putting him back on the road to
the majors.
“I just want to pitch well every time out,”
he said. “There’s definitely some rust and I
want to get my arm back in shape. That said,

Starting time
Peavy was limited 110 2/3 innings last year
because of hip and lower-back issues. “I just
threw three innings and did not have to have an
(hip) adjustment,” Peavy said. “It checked out
perfect. That’s an encouraging sign for me
moving forward.”

Jake Peavy bounced back from an awful spring debut to throw three innings Monday.

1B Brandon Belt, who has been sick and
missed his third straight game, returned to
camp. He anticipates playing Wednesday.

Up next

Peavy said he valued Buster Posey making
the hour-plus trip from Scottsdale to catch him.
“It’s nice to have somebody care that much

for a spring training game,” Peavy said. “To
come all the way out there, just to care to make
you better. This guy makes us all better. It’s

there is still stuff to work
on in the spring.”
Hahn pitched in a game
for the first time since
last July 1. An elbow
injury shortened his season.
“It felt like three years
ago even though I know
Kyle Zimmer it was only nine
months,” Hahn said. “It
was an awesome feeling getting out there. I
felt so good I was letting it go and was
rushing it to the plate. All I cared about was
getting out there completely healthy.”
The only hit he allowed was Moustakas’
homer.
“That was a slidestep change, ” Hahn
said. “I threw a fastball on the previous
pitch and noticed he was a little late on it. I
think I ran into his timing.”

MESA, Ariz. — Mark Ellis sprang out of
the Oakland clubhouse just as he did during
his rookie season.
Ellis, fifth among second basemen in
career fielding percentage at .991, returned
to the Athletics as a special instructor on
Monday, a little more than a year after ending a successful 12-year big league career.
A’s manager Bob Melvin said Ellis will
spend week assisting third-base coach Ron
Washington, generally regarded as one of
the top infield coaches in baseball.
Ellis spent the year away from the game
with his family in Florida, with the excep-

tion of a week he spent in the instructional
league, where he worked with fellow Florida
product Richie Martin.
He also will also work with prospect Joey
Wendle, who has been referred to as ‘Mark
Ellis 2.0.’
Ellis came to Oakland in a trade with the
Kansas City Royals and spent 8 1/2 years
with the A’s. He finished eighth in the AL
Rookie of the Year voting in 2002 and twice
led AL second basemen in fielding percentage. He has five of the top 32 season percentages at that position, with a best of
.997 in 2006.
Ellis, who has played all four infield positions, had a .262 career batting average with
105 homers, 1,343 hits and 550 RBIs.

Sharapova says she failed drug test
By Greg Beacham
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS
ANGELES

Maria
Sharapova’s tennis career and
Olympic hopes are in jeopardy, and
she claims it’s all because she failed to
click on a link in an email that would
have told her to stop taking meldonium.
The five-time major champion says
she failed a doping test at the
Australian Open in January for the little-known drug, which became a
banned substance under the WADA
code this year. The former world No. 1
took full responsibility for her mistake when she made the announcement
at a news conference Monday in Los
Angeles.
Sharapova could face a lengthy ban
from the International Tennis
Federation, possibly ending her season and preventing her from competing for Russia at the Rio Olympics.
“I know that with this, I face consequences, ” Sharapova said. “I don’t

want to end my
career this way, and
I really hope I will
be given another
chance to play this
game.”
The 28-year-old
Sharapova received
notice last week
that she tested posMaria
itive for meldoSharapova
nium, a blood flowpromoting drug she has been taking
for 10 years for numerous health
issues. Meldonium was banned
because it aids oxygen uptake and
endurance, and several athletes across
international sports have already been
caught using it.
Sharapova and all players were notified of the changes in the WADA
banned substances list in December.
Sharapova claimed she simply missed
the change, neglecting to click on the
link.
“I take great responsibility and professionalism in my job, and I made a

huge mistake,” Sharapova said. “I let
my fans down. I let the sport down
that I’ve been playing since the age of
4, that I love so deeply.”
Meldonium, also known as mildronate, is a Latvian-manufactured
drug popular for fighting heart disease
in former Soviet Union countries.
Meldonium treats ischemia, or lack of
blood flow, but can be taken in large
doses as a performance-enhancer.
Sharapova said she began taking
meldonium for “several health issues I
had back in 2006,” including a magnesium deficiency, regular influenza,
“irregular” heart test results and early
indications of diabetes, of which she
has a family history.
Sharapova’s penalties could range
from a multiyear ban to a minimal
sanction with no suspension if officials believe she made an honest mistake. WADA President Craig Reedie
told The Associated Press that any athlete found guilty of using meldonium
would normally face a one-year suspension.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

ANDREWS
Continued from page 11
and left it up to jurors to decide if the hotel owner, West End
Hotel Partners, and former operator, Windsor Capital Group,
should share any responsibility. The hotel is a franchise and
Marriott was not part of the trial.
Attorneys for the companies argued that while what happened to Andrews was terrible, the stalker should be solely to
blame because he was a determined criminal. The attorneys
also suggested that Andrews’ rise in her career showed she did
not suffer severe and permanent distress.
After the verdict, they said they were disappointed and not
sure if they would appeal. They noted their cooperation in the
FBI investigation and said the case had changed the hotel
industry to make rooms more secure.
Andrews said her stalker’s arrest and imprisonment did not
make the nightmare go away. She broke down on the stand
repeatedly, saying she continues to suffer because people are
still watching the videos and taunting her about them.
“This happens every day of my life,” Andrews said tearfully. “Either I get a tweet or somebody makes a comment in the
paper or somebody sends me a still video to my Twitter or
someone screams it at me in the stands and I’m right back to
this. I feel so embarrassed and I am so ashamed.”
Barrett pleaded guilty to stalking Andrews, altering hotel
room peepholes and taking nude videos of her. He was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison. He did not appear at the trial.
Andrews has maintained that someone at the hotel gave out
her room number to Barrett and honored his request to be
placed near hear. She said no one ever told her that he asked
to be in an adjoining or connecting room. Had she known
that, she said she would’ve called police.
Barrett was a Chicago-area insurance company executive
who frequently traveled around the country when he took the
video of Andrews at the Nashville hotel in September 2008.
He shot about 4 1/2 minutes of nude video of her while she
was inside a room that was in an alcove off a main hallway.
The video was played for jurors.
In Barrett’s videotaped deposition, he said that he alone
was to blame. He said he correctly guessed that she would be
at the hotel — it was the closest one to the Vanderbilt football game Andrews was covering — by calling and pretending to be in a group with Andrews and asking for confirmation of the reservations.
He said he used an in-house employee phone to learn her
room number, and made a request to be in the room next to
Andrews.
During closing arguments, one of Andrews’ lawyers said
Barrett tried to shoulder responsibility because he holds a
grudge against her over his conviction and didn’t want her to
win any money.
Barrett said he posted the recordings online after celebrity
gossip website TMZ refused to buy them. The only reason he
picked Andrews, he said, was because she was popular and he
saw that she was trending on Yahoo.

No. 24 Cal enters Pac-12 tourney on a roll
By Josh Dubow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BERKELEY — More than three
months after leaving Las Vegas
with a pair of early-season losses
and searching for an identity,
California returns to Sin City this
week for the Pac-12 tournament on
quite a roll.
The 24th-ranked Golden Bears
(22-9) have won eight of nine
games to earn the third seed and a
first-round bye in the conference
tournament as coach Cuonzo
Martin’s squad has done a good job
fitting in talented freshmen Jaylen
Brown and Ivan Rabb.
Cal started the season with high
expectations and a No. 14 national
ranking. But losses Thanksgiving
weekend to San Diego State and
Richmond started a stretch where
the Bears went 10-8, leaving their
NCAA Tournament hopes in peril.
But with improved defense following Martin’s decision to give more
time to big men Kingsley Okoroh
and Kameron Rooks and improved
chemistry as the players learned
each other’s strengths, Cal is playing as well as anyone in the conference heading into the tournament.

College baseball
Menlo College’s Kuhaulua
named GSAC Pitcher of Week
Oaks right-hander Ashkhon
Kuhaulua was named Golden State
Athletic Conference pitcher of the
week, following last Friday’s gem in
a 9-0 win over Arizona Christian.
The sophomore fired a two-hit
shutout, striking out 14 to improve
to 3-2. He leads all NAIA pitchers in
the nation with 65 strikeouts.

“You have to
work toward it,”
senior
guard
Tyrone Wallace
said. “It did click
in and once we
started playing
really
well,
everyone was
Tyrone Wallace playing for each
other and everyone was playing selfless. It didn’t
matter how many shots you had. If
one guy had it going or two guys
had it going, just try to get them
going. It did click in.”
The Bears will open play
Thursday night against the winner
of sixth-seeded Oregon State and
No. 11 seed Arizona State. Cal has
played both teams twice in the regular season, including a road win
Saturday against the Sun Devils.
But Martin said most of the practice time leading up to the game
will be spent on fine-tuning what
his team was rather than game-plan
for the opponent.
“In settings like this, you rely
on your principles more than anything down the stretch of games
because you don’t have a lot of
prep time to get ready for teams,”

he said. “Everybody knows everybody, there’s no new tricks.
There’s not a lot of time to put a
whole new system in so it comes
down to executing.”
Cal hopes a competitive season
that featured nine conference games
decided by fewer than 10 points will
help a mostly untested tournament
team thrive in March.
The Bears faltered late in a loss
last Thursday night at Arizona
before rebounding in the regular
season finale to hold off the Sun
Devils and wrap up the third seed.
“You’ve been through it, so you
see it,” Martin said. “It’s not a case
of being shell-shocked if it happens again. You’ve been in those
situations. It still comes down to a
matter of making plays. This time
of year, you’ll be in those kinds of
situations more times than not.”
Cal’s strong season led to honors for some of its players. Brown
was named first-team all-conference and the Pac-12 freshman of
the year. Rabb was a second-team
selection and Wallace was honorable mention despite missing five
games with a broken hand. Brown
and Rabb were also both picked to
the all-freshman team.

Sharks douse Flames
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CALGARY, Alberta — Joe
Pavelski scored 19 seconds into
overtime and Martin Jones made
47 saves and the San Jose Sharks
beat the Calgary Flames 2-1
Monday night.
Brent Burns curled toward the net
and centered a pass that Pavelski
one-timed past Joni Ortio.
Burns had the other goal for San
Jose, which improved its leaguebest road record to 24-9-3.
Joe Colborne tied the game for
Calgary with 1:22 left in the third
period. On their sixth power play
and with Ortio on the bench for an
extra attacker, Mark Giordano
gloved down a clearing attempt by
Nick Spaling and from the blue
line and wristed a shot that
Colborne deflected past Jones.
Calgary has won just one of its
past seven at the Scotiabank
Saddledome. The Flames’ 48 shots
on goal were their highest in a

game since Nov. 18 2008, when
they had 51 against Colorado.
Burns opened the scoring 1:56
into the game when he snapped a
shot from the blue line that went
through a crowd of bodies in front
and found the top corner.
It was Burns’ 24th goal of the
season. He is the first defenseman
to reach that total since
Washington’s Mike Green scored
31 in 2008-09. Burns has seven
points (four goals, three assists)
in his past four games.
Jones, who made 18 saves in the
second period, improved to 33-174. He is third in the NHL in wins.
Ortio had 21 saves to fall to 1-63.
The Flames had a chance to tie
the game earlier in the third period
when Colborne set up Lance
Bouma at the side of the net. But
with Jones caught out of position,
Bouma shot the puck right
through the crease and out the
other side.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

Continued from page 11
the 5-2 junior bullied through to
clear the close threat. But when
the Gators went right back on the
attack, Tilney-Volk put on a show.
“She was very much amped up;
she is a senior playing in her last
game,” Menlo head coach Ross
Ireland said. “But she brought a lot
of calm when we needed it.”
Not that the hyper-competitive
Tilney-Volk needs additional
motivation outside of playing in a
title game. But the memory of
Menlo’s first matchup with SHP
this season also stoked the fire, a
game in which the Knights also
led 2-0, only to see the Gators reel
off three consecutive goals to take
the lead. Menlo averted all-out disaster in that Jan. 19 matchup,
scoring in the final minutes to salvage a tie.
That’s what kept Tilney-Volk —
clad in her signature No. 16
orange keeper’s jersey, black
shorts and (an homage to her
mother’s alma matter) a Princeton
University toque to keep her hair
out of her face — fiercely on her
game. But she took it to another
level for the defensive stand when
she saw Davidson dribbling
towards her for an explosive
attempt off the left wing.
“As a goalkeeper, it’s scary
when she’s charging at you, ”
Tilney-Volk said. “It’s an intimidating sight.”
Tilney-Volk got both hands on
the attempt to deflect it out of

bounds, setting up an SHP corner
kick. It saw junior midfielder
McKenna Angotti emerge in traffic
for a header attempt from close
range. That’s when Tilney-Volk
showed off her pugilistic graces
by thundering through the traffic
jam with gloves flying into the
head of Angotti to knock the ball
away.
The Gators came right back at
Tilney-Volk with their best chance
of the day though, a shot from 10
yards out that prompted the keeper’s lightning reflexes to lunge
right to deflect. When the deflection went directly to the foot of
another SHP shooter, Tilney-Volk
summoned every ounce of athleticism to reverse course and leave
her feet for an all-out dive in the
opposite direction, punching the
final shot away for her most
impressive save of the afternoon.
“She was the player of the
game,” Ireland said. “Absolutely.”
The defensive masterpiece was
an all-around effort by Menlo’s
back row though. Crowder’s performance was the most unlikely,
after she started the year as a forward. Not having played defender
since middle school, however,
Ireland asked her to convert at the
start of this year. She took to it
like a natural.
Along with Claire McFarland,
Emily Tse and Daria Sprague, the
chemistry Tilney-Volk has forged
with her defensive counterparts
didn’t only create a special bond
that produced championship
results. It is the kind of chemistry
that also soured Tilney-Volk on
club soccer, which she quit three
years ago.
“I think we’re so tight on the

American company bungled Ebola response
By Raphael Satter and Maria Cheng
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — An American company
that bills itself as a pioneer in tracking
emerging epidemics made a series of costly
mistakes during the 2014 Ebola outbreak
that swept across West Africa — with
employees feuding with fellow responders,
contributing to misdiagnosed Ebola cases
and repeatedly misreading the trajectory of
the virus, an Associated Press investigation
has found.
San Francisco-based Metabiota Inc. was
tapped by the Sierra Leonean government
and the World Health Organization to help
monitor the spread of the virus and support
the response after Ebola was discovered circulating in neighboring Guinea in March
2014. But emails obtained by AP and interviews with aid workers on the ground show
that some of the company’s actions made an
already chaotic situation worse.

expired chlorine, a crucial disinfectant.
WHO said Metabiota was well-placed to
help when Ebola broke out in West Africa
because of its expertise with Lassa, a related
disease. The agency declined to give any
detail about how it dealt with the complaints from senior staff about the firm or
the status of their current relationship.
In Sierra Leone, Sylvia Blyden, who
served as special executive assistant to the
country’s president in the early days of the
outbreak, said Metabiota’s response was a
disaster.
“They messed up the entire region,” she
said. She called Metabiota’s attempt to
claim credit for its Ebola work “an insult for
the memories of thousands of Africans who
have died.”

“THE VIRAL STORM”
Wolfe, a swashbuckling scientist sometimes described as the Indiana Jones of
virology, has focused his company’s work
on disease hotspots like West Africa in a bid
to sniff out the next big threat. In his book,
“The Viral Storm,” Wolfe writes that his
work is aimed at hunting down “the first
moments at the birth of a new pandemic” to
prevent its global spread.
With a doctorate in immunology and
infectious diseases from Harvard, Wolfe,
45, has found some serious backers.
Metabiota and its nonprofit sister company
Global Viral have received millions in funding from USAID, Google and the Skoll
Foundation, among others. The Department
of Defense alone has granted more than $18
million worth of contracts to the firm, federal records show.

EBOLA
Continued from page 17
In the early months of the outbreak, with
WHO and the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention thin on the ground,
Metabiota said it stepped in to help at the
request of the Sierra Leonean government.
An account posted to its website says
Metabiota provided “critical support” in the
earliest days of the outbreak, organizing
training, jointly running Sierra Leone’s
Ebola laboratory, assisting with outbreak
logistics and producing daily reports for the
government.
Messages saved to ProMed, a mailing list
for outbreak watchers, are upbeat, describing Metabiota’s tests and how it was teaching Sierra Leoneans how to set up Ebola
isolation wards. On May 12, senior
Metabiota scientist Dr. Jean-Paul Gonzalez

said preparedness work had “ultimately protected, or at least uniquely prepared, Sierra
Leone.”
But there were already reports of suspected
infections in the country and, within weeks,
the virus tore through Sierra Leone, overwhelming the hospital in Kenema where
Metabiota shared the 700-square-foot (65square-meter) lab with Tulane.
To some at Tulane, which had a longestablished research project at the lab,
Metabiota’s missteps were predictable. The
two groups worked side-by-side in an
uneasy relationship that observers said
sometimes tipped into open conflict.
Tulane microbiology professor Bob Garry
questioned whether Gonzalez was the right
person to teach Sierra Leoneans how to protect themselves from Ebola. In 1994, the
French researcher was at the center of a safety scare at Yale University after he accidentally infected himself with the rare Sabia
virus and didn’t notify officials there for
more than a week. The university put more

than 100 people under surveillance and
ordered Gonzalez to take a remedial safety
course. Garry said that should have raised a
red flag.
“Do you really want the person who
infected himself with hemorrhagic fever
going around explaining to people how to
be safe?” he asked.
Gonzalez referred questions to a
Metabiota press representative, who said in
an email that the incident happened more
than 20 years ago and that Gonzalez has
extensive lab safety experience.
But Garry also faced questions; the WHO
emails obtained by AP complaining about
the Kenema lab are as critical of Tulane as
they are of Metabiota.
Garry acknowledged mistakes but said
they were understandable given the chaotic
circumstances.
“We didn’t have the personnel and the
infrastructure that was needed to handle the
onslaught of cases that were coming,” he
said. “We were doing the best we had with
what we had there.”

“THEY WERE AT WAR”
As the death toll mounted in July, scientists from WHO, the United States and
Canada were voicing concerns about what
Metabiota and its Tulane colleagues were
doing at the Kenema lab, according to the
emails obtained by AP and interviews with
those on the ground at the time.
When Gary Kobinger, head of special
pathogens at the Public Health Agency of
Canada, double-checked some of the facility’s work in mid-July, he found worrying
discrepancies in four of eight tests and identified up to five people wrongly diagnosed
with Ebola, among them a worker with the
medical charity Doctors Without Borders.
Kobinger told AP in a telephone interview
that the misdiagnoses he caught suggested
many more had gone unnoticed.
“If you detect two, three, four, five, how
many are out there?” he said.
The mistakes were doubly dangerous in a
country where many mistrusted international workers, who were suspected of spreading
Ebola deliberately, said Bertherat, the WHO
outbreak expert. Attempts to reassure a jittery public could be “totally ruined if the
population does not trust anymore in the
diagnostic of the medical teams,” he wrote
in an email.
Bertherat proposed two fixes for the prob-

THE DAILY JOURNAL
lematic lab: WHO could either train
Metabiota and Tulane staffers, or close
down the facility and transfer all testing to
another lab. He told his boss on July 18,
2014, that shutting down the shared lab was
the “more prudent” option.
Five days later, Geneva-based WHO
staffer Pat Drury emailed the agency’s chief,
Dr. Margaret Chan, with criticism of both
Tulane and Metabiota, referring to their
shared facility as two labs.
“Both labs do not meet international
standards for Biosecurity,” he said, adding
that “several patients have been wrongly
tested positive.”
Metabiota founder Wolfe said “we did
wonderful lab work as far as I’m concerned.”
Errors in the shared facility stopped once
“other groups” were pulled from the testing
and, in any case, he noted that Metabiota
tested over 1,800 samples. Even if any mistakes were made, he said the error rates were
well within ranges seen elsewhere.
Wolfe did not name the “other groups,”
but documents and interviews show
Metabiota and Tulane blamed each other.
“On the surface, they were collaborating,”
Kobinger said. But in reality, “they were at
war.”
U.S. health official Austin Demby, who
was sent to evaluate the lab’s work at the
request of the CDC and Sierra Leone, said
initial diagnostic tests carried out by
Metabiota and Tulane clashed as often as 30
percent of the time. Errors raised the risk
that the virus could be spread further by
sending infected patients home or confining otherwise healthy people to infectious
Ebola wards.
In a July 21 email to CDC and State
Department officials, Demby put the blame
at Tulane’s door, saying Metabiota’s tests
were always closer to the mark and that
Tulane’s “add no real value to the diagnosis.” But Tulane’s Garry said Metabiota’s
staff stirred confusion by not following
protocol.
Wolfe said that was “simply false.”
The lab’s set-up also was worrisome. Used
needles littered the place, according to a
worker who spoke on condition of
anonymity because the worker was not
authorized to speak to the media. Demby
said in his email that the lab lacked an ultraviolet light for decontamination and didn’t
have enough space to process blood samples safely.

since prosecutors and his defense agreed
he’d be sent to Napa State Hospital for

“I think Mr. Youshock is anxious to continue with his treatment in state prison. I
think he’s anxious to serve the remainder of
his sentence and hopefully be released at
some point to be reunited with his family,”
said defense attorney John McDougall.
“He’s anxious to try and get some closure
on all this by serving his sentence.”
Although Youshock’s exact diagnosis
and medical report from Napa have not been
publicly released, after receiving treatment
and medication doctors found him restored
to sanity, said Chief Deputy District
Attorney Karen Guidotti.
Youshock had never been on medication
before his arrest and Guidotti noted he
reportedly heard voices and had paranoid
delusions that led him to turn on his former
teachers.
His beliefs “had really gotten out of control in terms of thinking that the teachers
were out to get him when in fact, they were

just trying to get him to do his [school]
work,” Guidotti said.
Youshock’s case proceeded for years with
a jury narrowly deadlocking on sanity and
whether to convict him of a second count of
attempted murder stemming from the Aug.
24, 2009, incident.
Youshock arrived at the campus around 8
a.m. having spent five months planning an
elaborate massacre to kill teachers he
deemed “guilty” of ruining his life. He was
armed with homemade bombs, a chain saw,
sword and outfitted with a welding mask to
protect his face from blood splatter.
He detonated two pipe bombs, including
one he threw at an aide who was responding
to a teacher’s screams, but failed in his
attempt to start the chain saw. A teacher
tackled the teen before anyone was injured.
He remained subdued by two teachers and
the principal until police arrived.
Jurors found him guilty of six felonies
and Youshock eventually pleaded no contest to the second attempted murder charge
with the prosecution agreeing to insanity
on one charge of exploding a destructive
device with intent to commit murder. As a
result, Youshock was committed to the state
mental institution in 2011.
“It was a good resolution of the case
because it meant he would get the mental

health treatment he needed. Everyone
agreed he had mental health problems, but
it also meant he would be punished for his
conduct,” Guidotti said.
Guidotti, who argued during trial that
Youshock had clearly premeditated the
attack he referred to as “D-Day,” said she
was unsurprised Youshock petitioned to
have doctors declare he be restored to sanity late last year. Now, he can return to serving his prison term, she noted.
“His sanity was a borderline issue all
along. The jurors felt 11-1 he was sane.
There certainly was evidence he had mental
health issues, but it doesn’t surprise me
that with the medication, he was deemed
sane,” Guidotti said. “The only thing at
issue now is how much credit does he get for
the time he has served.”
Youshock is scheduled to return to court
Monday, March 14, where Guidotti said
she’d argue the law provides he should not
receive credit for his time spent in Napa.
In 2011, the court found Youshock had
earned 628 days credit for time served,
Guidotti said. Whether his nearly five-year
stint at the mental hospital is included
could mean he could be released from prison
sooner.
McDougall noted prosecutors only
deemed him insane in relation to one

charge and he will argue his client should
receive credit on the other charges.
“Because of the uniqueness of this plea, it
was essentially a dual plea where we was
going to be committed to Napa on one
charge, but then serve a sentence on a number of other charges. The law is really not
clear on custody credits,” McDougall said.
“There’s some issues on what he’s entitled
to from the day of his arrest, to essentially
today.”
McDougall noted his client “willingly
accepted the offer as part of the negotiated
plea. He’s accepted the fact that he’ll have a
lengthy state prison sentence to serve.”
As during much of the trial, Guidotti said
on Monday Youshock was “very quiet, didn’t say a word” in court.
As part of his transfer, Youshock will
also be required to begin paying the San
Mateo Union High School District nearly
$136,000 in restitution, Guidotti said.
“You don’t see these cases come along
every day. This is a very, very unusual
case,” Guidotti said. “I’ve seen a few of the
victims on occasion and people seem to be
doing well and moving on. I’m sure this
has impacted their lives in ways that
they’ll never forget, but people do have a
way of healing, which is a wonderful
thing.”

Water contaminated with human waste
rose a few feet off the ground in some
instances, he said, before seeping through
the floor of the second story and into the
basement.
Waste water began to leak from the ceiling into the family’s living area downstairs, as well as vents and light fixtures.
“There is extensive damage all over,” said
Arakel Aristakessian. “The house is
destroyed.”
Aristakessian, his parents and two brothers have been staying in a hotel since the
incident, and are uncertain of when they will
be able to return home.
“We don’t have anywhere to live,” he
said.
Chen expressed a similar sentiment.
Chen, his two daughters and wife are also
staying in a hotel, and remain uncertain of
who or which agency ultimately will be held
accountable.
“This is stressing my family out,” he
said. “I know it was a mistake, but it was a
very reckless mistake they did.”
Aristakessian said his family plans to
spend the following days identifying how
to recover the cost of the damages to the
home.
“We have to sue somebody, but we don’t

know who to sue,” he said. “It is a huge
headache.”
Aristakessian said he was expecting to
soon move to San Diego to further pursue
his college education, but the difficulties

associated with helping his family through
the recovery process has thrown that into
question.
“This changes my life,” he said. “It’s
hard. It’s frustrating.”

NELSON
Continued from page 1
Should Nelson ultimately receive the
transfer, it would likely mark the final
chapter in a contentious personnel
issue which has played out publicly, as
thousands of community members have
advocated for the popular teacher to
keep his post at Burlingame High
School.
Nelson said he is unhappy about leaving the school and community where he
has educated generations of local families.
“My 27-year career is being taken
apart,” he said.
Though terms are yet to be finalized,
the expected transfer comes months
after an ongoing dispute between
Nelson and Burlingame High School
Principal Di Yim grew to a head.
The two had repeatedly clashed over
differences of opinion regarding education programs and the school’s culture,
according to Nelson, which ultimately
led to administrators informing him he
would be transferred to another district
campus in the coming year.
Community members rallied publicly
in favor of Nelson being able to keep
his job, and instead channeled their
frustration toward Yim, resulting in
more than 2,000 parents and students
signing an online petition expressing
their support for the educator in his dispute with the principal.
Just as the petition began to spread

homes in Pacifica and unincorporated
areas of the county.
The damage to Mirada Road and along
the Pacifica coastline were primarily
caused by El-Niño-fueled waves pounding at the bluffs.
Further south in Half Moon Bay,
much of the degradation now occurring
has been intensified by these heavier
seasonal rains causing runoff to naturally head toward the sea.
Half Moon Bay officials are also
striving to manage the impacts of these
harsh coastal elements while keeping
future climate change predictions in
mind, Doughty said.
“The bluffs are sand, they’re highly
erosive soils. So you can just see how
quickly it will erode,” Doughty said.
“We’ve got a much bigger problem, it’s
how do we deal with the bluffs retreating at the rate it seems to be retreating?
… These are the leading, bleeding edges
of sea level rise and coastal retreat that
we’re all dealing with and going to be
dealing with for the foreseeable future.”
The city planned to submit requests
for emergency coastal development

through the community, Yim abruptly
announced her resignation in late
January, effective at the end of the
school year.
At the time, she denied her decision
was compelled by the rift with Nelson,
but rather was necessary to provide her
more time to spend together with family.
Community members have passionately pleaded in favor of allowing
Nelson to continue teaching at
Burlingame High School, as the school
will be under new leadership next year.
San Mateo Union High School
District officials declined to comment
on the future of Nelson’s employment,
citing a district policy against publicly
addressing personnel issues, according
to spokeswoman Sheri Costa-Batis.
For his part, Nelson said he believes
he is facing professional retribution for
the rift with Yim, and his transfer will
not solve many of the problems which
have developed in the Burlingame High
School community over the past few
years.
“I’m the scapegoat, and my transfer is
not going to solve things,” he said.
“It’s a family in crisis, and it needs an
intervention.”
Nelson said the crux of the problems
plaguing the school community stem
from parents and students feeling shut
out from the decision making process at
Burlingame High School, which has
caused many to feel alienated and frustrated.
As he prepares to leave, and district
officials set their sights on hiring a

new principal, Nelson said it is integral
a candidate is selected who is capable of
balancing the Burlingame community’s
passion and considerable expectations
for the local high school.
“It takes an independent leader who
understands the community’s values,”
said Nelson, of the ideal candidate to
lead Burlingame High School into the
future.
Looking toward the opportunity to
teach at Aragon High School, Nelson
said he is preparing to begin educating
students at the school he graduated
from.
“It’s a great school, I can’t deny
that,”
he
said.
But Nelson said he remains unhappy
with his unceremonious exit from his
current position.
“I live in Burlingame, five minutes
from my job. I have raised my kids here
and developed a lot of good will. I’ve
been a baseball and soccer coach. That
is a lot to give up,” he said.
The transfer is not yet official, said
Nelson, and he expects attorneys hired
by the district teachers’ union will continue fighting for his interest to stay at
Burlingame High School.
He said he is certain community members will continue their advocacy campaign supporting him as well.
Yet despite the variety of avenues that
will be pursued in an effort to keep
Nelson at Burlingame High School, the
educator said he is forced to consider
moving into a new chapter of his career.
“If this is the end of my run, I’ve had
an incredible time,” he said.

permits from the California Coastal
Commission to help protect portions
of the trail that run across other
drainage pipes toward the neighboring
Francis State Beach to the north,
Doughty said earlier this year.
Such repairs will be costly and there
isn’t yet firm direction on what types of
projects will be approved or undertaken
for either the Seymour gully or other
eroded bluffs further north.
However, the city does have a firm
plan to protect coastal trail access provided by the Seymour Bridge, which
could be compromised should
inclement weather continue.
“Staff’s cause for concern for public
safety emerges from the fact that rain
has caused further erosion and extended
the gully five feet closer to the bridge’s
substructure. Significant rainfalls in
the next year could extend the gully
even closer to the bridge and threaten
bridge failure,” according to the report.
The estimated $550,000 replacement, which includes soft and hard
costs, involves installing a new bridge
about 100 feet further east where there’s
a natural opening in the trees.
The city had only just finished the
yearslong process of working to
replace the Pilarcitos Creek Bridge,
another pedestrian route connecting the
coastal trail that had to be closed after a

California State Parks vehicle drove
over it and damaged the structure. After
working closely with the state agency,
the owner of the bridge, city officials
were pleased to reopen it late last year.
Although the circumstances behind
the two bridges were different, Doughty
said both are evidence of the extra precautions agencies must take when dealing with the effects of coastal climateinduced erosion and corrosion.
“The lesson learned is you’ve got to
be vigilant about trying to do preventative maintenance,” Doughty said.
Councilwoman Marina Fraser said the
Coastal Commission and community
have expressed support for realigning
the trail and bridge further east. Ideally,
the city hopes to replace the current
bridge, which was made in part from a
recycled railroad car flatbed, with a
newer and longer one by this fall.
Replacement was determined to be more
cost effective and result in a longer lasting structure, Fraser said.
After “almost 20 years of sitting on
the edge of the California coast, it’s
reached its lifespan. In addition, to the
extent of the erosion that Mother Nature
brings to our beaches, the cliff has suffered much degradation,” Fraser said in
an email. “As we are seeing all along the
coast these days, bluffs, bridges and
coastlines do not last forever.”
