Happy Georgia election day and Electoral College Ratification Eve. It's going to be a wild 48 hours. I'm not even bothering having CNN on this morning and am happy the late shows were back last night, even if James Corden was back in his garage.

During last night's rally during one of his off-prompter wanderings, President Trump mused that this might be the first time that a state had two U.S. senators at the same time. It was unclear if he was speaking about the runoff or just generally. Of course, in 1992, California elected Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer. Feinstein, seen as more able to be prepared for reelection in 1994 for a full term, ran for the "short seat." That seat was held by John Seymour (R), who was appointed by Pete Wilson to fill the vacancy created when he moved from U.S. Senate to Governor after the 1990 election.

I made a great Instant Pot chili with ground beef from Winterport Farm (Ione, Amador County) for dinner last night. Yeah, yeah, I'll make up Meatless Monday later this week but it was ideal for the rainy, chilly day. Somewhere among my cookbooks is my Coffee Hous e Cookbook from UC Davis. In it is the great vegan chili recipe that was a frequent lunch in a bread bowl during undergrad when I was vegetarian. The distance from the law school to CoHo was enough to make it only an occasional trip, but I did miss those bowls of veggie chili as I ate Taco Bell bean and 7-layer burritos at The Silo.

Although the chili last night was paleo, I didn't keep it paleo as I strictly do in January of normal years with a Whole 30 and instead made cornbread muffins from scratch and had a side of braised greens from Spreadwing Farm (Rumsey, Capay Valley, Yolo County) with smoked ham hock from Riverdog Farm (Guinda, Capay Valley). Major yumminess. I did use almond milk in the muffins, so there is that...

I did have a strange occurrence this morning. Yesterday I wrote:

From the "who moved my cheese" file, this morning, my trusty electric water kettle for tea appears to have bitten the dust. It has saved me literally hundreds of walks to the microwave while writing. Yes, I tried different working outlets. I will be wearing my watch today and tomorrow morning while writing to get credit for the additional steps before a replacement arrives.

Damn thing, which I had left in the on position, came back to life this morning without me touching it.

BUDGET: During yesterday's COVID-19 update, Governor Newsom said that his proposed 2021-22 State Budget on Friday since the constitutional deadline of January 10 falls on a Sunday. (Art. IV, Section 12(a))

DO YOU RECALL? Yesterday, former San Diego mayor Kevin Faulconer (R) tweeted that he has formed an exploratory committee for a run for governor.

No better way to ring in the New Year than taking the first step in turning around California.

I’m excited to launch our gubernatorial exploratory committee.

I want you to be part of this California comeback. Join us at kevinfaulconer.com

More updates soon!

While neither his tweet nor his website mention a possible recall election, Faulconer tweeted on Saturday asking readers to join him in signing the petition to recall Governor Newsom.

Meanwhile, former chair of both the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) and Federal Elections Commission Ann Ravel has filed a complaint with the FPPC and the state Attorney General asking for an investigation into Irvine-based Prov. 3:9, LLC and if it is a shell company with the purpose of obscuring contributions from donors supporting the recall of Governor Gavin Newsom. The "consulting company" gave $500,000 to the recall effort on December 18, which was reported on December 29.

Politico's Jeremy B. White reports:

In a letter to the Fair Political Practices Commission and the California Department of Justice, Ann Ravel — who previously chaired the FPPC and ran as a Democrat for the state Senate this year — urged a probe into the money’s true source. Her complaint warns that Prov 3:9 resembles “a shell company being used to evade disclosure of the person or persons funding the recall contribution.”

“What they have done is just set up essentially a shell that is truly a recipient committee receiving money from the person who set it up, as a pass-through,” Ravel alleged in an interview.

I looked into it for The Nooner on New Year's Day.

UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS: The Chron's Carolyn Said and Kathleen Pender write that California Employment Development Department has paused payments to some applicants for unemployment insurance while they are investigated for suspected fraud. This has led many applicants to claim they have been unfairly targeted and financially strapped.

Many Californians who said they are legitimately unemployed flooded social media over the weekend with laments that they desperately need the benefits that they rely on for housing, food and other necessities.

“You have been receiving unemployment benefits, but we have temporarily suspended your claim because it may be tied to fraudulent activity,” said a notice dated Dec. 31 that many people received. “You will receive further instruction from EDD on how to verify your identity beginning Jan. 6, 2021.”

In a tweet on Sunday, the agency said, “As part of ongoing efforts to fight fraud, EDD has suspended payment on claims considered high risk and is informing those affected that their identity will need to be verified starting this week before payments can resume. More details on the EDD website in the days ahead.”

Some social media posts said hundreds of thousands of people were notified. The EDD declined to say how many people are getting identity-verification requests. In an email, spokeswoman Loree Levy said, “EDD continues to strengthen its fraud detection methods and apply them to new and existing claims to further reduce the fraud that has plagued unemployment systems throughout the country.”

Q&A WITH DR. WEBER: When Kamala Harris resigns her Senate seat on or before January 20 and Alex Padilla's appointment by Governor Newsom to the seat takes effect, so does his nomination of Assembly member Dr. Shirley Weber (D-San Diego) to be California's next Secretary of State. Her nomination requires confirmation by simple majorities of the State Senate and State Assembly, which is widely expected. For CalMatters, Ben Christopher has an interview with her.

ASSEMBLY CHAPLAIN: For Capitol Weekly, Rich Ehisen introduces us to Sacramento Imam Mohammad “Yasir” Khan, the Capitol's first Muslim chaplain.

“I’ve seen the growth of the Islamic community in my own district and have become close to both religious and civic leaders,” [Assembly Speaker Anthony] Rendon said. “Like them, Khan shows a strong desire to contribute to the spiritual and civic vitality of California.”

Those contributions include serving as the chaplain for Northern California organizations like the San Joaquin County jail, Lodi Memorial hospital and the California Islamic Center. Khan is also the founder of Al-Misbaah, a non-profit that provides various kinds of charitable and financial aid to immigrants and other needy families in the Sacramento region.

He says he wasn’t looking to add the Assembly chaplaincy to his duties, and admits that when the Speaker’s office first contacted him, “I didn’t think much of it.” But after a few conversations – including one with Rendon – he became intrigued. More conversations ensued, this time with family and fellow clergy, who encouraged him to do it.

“This was not something I was seeking,” he says. “It basically fell in my lap.”

Khan succeeds the husband-wife duo of Bob and Patti Oshita, who served in 2019 and 2020 respectively and were the first Buddhist chaplains. "Reverend Bob" is the retired leader of the Buddhist Church of Sacramento.

SANDY EGGO: For the SDUT, Gary Warth looks at how the San Diego Board of Supervisors changes with yesterday's video swearing-in of Joel Anderson, Terra Lawson-Remer, and Nora Vargas.

The other two supervisors, Jim Desmond and Nathan Fletcher, were elected to the board two years ago.

For the home-gamers, Fletcher is married to Assembly member Lorena Gonzalez and is a former Republican member of the State Assembly who subsequently changed his registration to independent and then Democratic.

With the addition of Lawson-Remer and Vargas, both Democrats, the composition of the board has made a dramatic political shift to the political left. Fletcher had been the only Democrat on the board until Monday.

Vargas replaces Republican Greg Cox in District 1 and Lawson-Remer replaces Republican Kristin Gaspar in District 3. Anderson replaces fellow Republican Dianne Jacob in District 2.

MEDIA MATTERS: Yesterday, John Wildermuth posted to Facebook that he accepted a buyout and was leaving the San Francisco Chronicle.

For nearly half a century, I've watched California change and had a chance to write about --and hopefully affect -- what's happened in the state and in the city where I grew up. A shout out to all the people --and readers -- I worked with at the Imperial Valley Press in El Centro, the Whittier Daily News, the Pasadena Star-News and the Chronicle. I expect I'll keep on writing somewhere, but to quote the Grateful Dead, "what a long, strange trip it's been." But always, always fun.

Sadly, the end of an era and I hope his words appear somewhere soon.

I don't think I wrote about it, but Joel Fox and team ceased the daily publications on Fox&Hounds.

With this article, we end publication of Fox and Hounds Daily. It has been a satisfying 12½ year run. When we opened in May 2008, our site was designed to offer an opportunity to those who wished to engage in public debate on many issues, especially in politics and business, but found it difficult to get placed in newspaper op-ed pages.

Co-publishers Tom Ross, Bryan Merica and I have kept F&H going over this time investing our own time, funding, and staff help. Last year at this time we considered closing the site, however with an election on the horizon we decided to keep F&H going through the election year. With the election come and gone, and with no sense of additional resources, we have decided to close the site down.

Fox and Hounds will live on, at least, with my articles collected in the California State Library.

On a personal note, I have spent over 40 years in California policy and politics. There have been some incredible high moments and some difficult low points. It pains me that politics too often is a blood sport, frequently demonizing the motives of opponents and using the legal system as a weapon in public discourse. At Fox & Hounds, we tried to adhere to the practice of giving all a voice in the debate, yet keep the commentaries civil and avoided personal attacks.

Since beginning to write The Nooner in 2011 and certainly since I went full-time, I have relied on voices like those of Wildermuth and Fox and those included on Fox&Hounds to balance out my intrinsic center-left leanings and share views that challenge them. I tried to check Fox&Hounds daily although on busy news days I barely get through all the newspaper sites even after 6 hours of work.

Advertising continues to be brutal -- for me, for conventional newspaper sites, and alternative publishers like Fox&Hounds. We're all worse for it.

COVID-19, cakeday and classifieds after the jump...

If you like The Nooner and don't already, consider a subscription, advertising, or otherwise support the work using Square, PayPal, or check. only 11.1% of readers are currently paid subscribers. even a $5 or $10 quick "tip" via Square or Venmo to "Scott-Lay" helps during this low-advertising 2020 and likely depressed first quarter with limited legislative action. (For Venmo, the last 4 of my phone is 5801 if asked.)

Sorry for the nags and I know it's irritating, but I also know you're seeing them across media properties and in your email inbox. At least I do every day including all the ones that take money from my account monthly...

Hopefully this customary ad slot will be filled soon!

COVID-19: California added 379 deaths yesterday for a total of 27,016 since the pandemic began. This includes delayed reports from the holiday weekend, which will likely continue today. Case numbers are a bit screwed up because of the holiday and we'll have to wait a few days for it all to be straightened out. The state reports 31,440 new cases yesterday, while the LA Times tracker based on surveys of county health departments pegs the number at 74,135. It comes down to when cases are reported to the state, which usually lags the LAT survey.

Hospitalized and ICU-level hospitalized for COVID-19 reached another new high yesterday. CDPH reports that there were 22,485 hospitalized patients yesterday, of which 4,734 were receiving ICU-level care. The 14-day hospitalized daily average was 20,869 and daily ICU hospitalized was 4,385, both the highest yet.

The 14-day positivity rate yesterday was 12.7% of 295,757 average daily tests, the highest since April 2, when the 14-day average number of tests was 1,904 and pretty much only administered to skilled-nursing facility residents and patients presenting with symptoms in hospitals.

-The overview: For CalMatters, Barbara Feder Ostrov writes up the assessment of the situation in California discussed on yesterday's NewsomAtNoon (links below).

“COVID fatigue and resentment is certainly at play here,” said Dr. Mark Ghaly, the state’s top health official, at today’s news conference. “The activities you did a month ago are now just so much more risky. We do believe the stay-at-home order did make an important difference in the past few weeks, to … flatten the curve just a little bit.”

Ghaly described California as being “in the deep dark part of the tunnel, but there is light ahead” as more people get immunized.

As a new coronavirus variant begins to take hold in California, state health officials are trying to speed up distribution of the newly authorized Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. Newsom said today he’s requesting that state lawmakers approve $300 million for vaccine distribution across the state.

Vaccines are further discussed below.

-Regional stay-at-home: Three regions -- Greater Sacramento, San Joaquin Valley, and Southern California -- are now under the state stay-at-home order indefinitely. The Bay Area Region is expected to join them when its initial three weeks are up on Friday.

--the regions: Here are the regions with the latest ICU capacity (available physical beds and necessary staffing). The benchmark to avoid falling under the stay-at-home order is 15% capacity and to emerge from it, there must be a four-week outlook indicating that it will remain above 15%. The California Department of Public Health reports that it is monitoring the four-week outlook data from the regions for which the initial three weeks under the stay-at-home order has passed:

ICU capacity projections for regions that are eligible to exit the order are calculated daily based on four factors: current estimated regional ICU capacity available, measure of current community transmission, current regional case rates and the proportion of ICU cases being admitted. Decreasing community transmission and increasing the health system capacity can help a region's projected ICU capacity so they can exit the order.

If a region exits the stay-at-home order, each county within the region returns to the color-based tier system based on the county's current data.

  • Northern California: Del Norte, Glenn, Humboldt, Lake, Lassen, Mendocino, Modoc, Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, Trinity
    ICU capacity as of 1/4: 30.0% (-5.5%)
  • Bay Area: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Monterey, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma
    ICU capacity as of 1/4: 7.9% (-0.5%)

  • Greater Sacramento: Alpine, Amador, Butte, Colusa, El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Sacramento, Sierra, Sutter, Yolo, Yuba
    ICU capacity as of 1/4: 12.1% (+1.8%)
  • San Joaquin Valley: Calaveras, Fresno, Kern, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Merced, San Benito, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Tulare, Tuolumne
    ICU capacity as of 1/4: 0.0% (no change)

  • Southern California: Imperial, Inyo, Los Angeles, Mono, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura
    ICU capacity as of 1/4: 0.0% (no change)

-tiers for fears: There were no changes to county tier assignments yesterday.

  • Purple/Widespread=54 counties
  • Red/Substantial=3 (Alpine, Humboldt, Mariposa)
  • Orange/Moderate=1 (Sierra)

-Vaccines: During yesterday's NewsomAtNoon, Governor Newsom acknowledged that getting vaccines into arms is going more slowly than expected. While vaccine dose delivery haven't met projections nationally, there have also been local hiccups and vaccine hesitancy among some health care workers. A team at the Times reports:

Only about 35% of the COVID-19 vaccine doses that have arrived in California have been administered so far, a rate Gov. Gavin Newsom acknowledged Monday was “not good enough” as he pledged new funding and efforts aimed at ramping up the rollout.

California has received just under 1.3 million vaccine doses, but just more than 454,000 people have received the shots, according to figures Newsom presented.

Though he has regularly maintained that distribution of the long-awaited vaccines would build up more rapidly over time, he said the process had, to this point, “gone too slowly, I know, for many of us.”

Newsom provided no clear answer during a news conference to questions about the cause of the lag, only promising “a much more aggressive posture” and additional details in the coming days.

On the issue of health care workers refusing to receive the vaccine, Governor Newsom said that the California Department of Public Health was conducting a survey to learn the magnitude of the issue.

Meanwhile, the Department of Consumer Affairs yesterday issued an order allowing licensed dentists in California to initiate and administer approved SARS-CoV-2 vaccines.

-Care rationing: The crisis at Los Angeles County hospitals is so great that care is being rationed including who is actually brought to the hospital, writes a team from the LAT.

The situation in Los Angeles County hospitals is so critical that ambulance crews have been advised to cut back on their use of oxygen and to not bring to hospitals patients who have virtually no chance of survival. Officials say they need to focus on patients with a greater chance of surviving.

The measures were taken as circumstances are expected to become even worse in coming weeks, when patients sickened over the Christmas holiday will need treatment, leaving officials desperate for ways to increase capacity and triage care to focus on the sickest patients.

Already, “many hospitals have reached a point of crisis and are having to make very tough decisions about patient care,” said Dr. Christina Ghaly, the L.A. County director of health services.

“The volume being seen in our hospitals still represents the cases that resulted from the Thanksgiving holiday,” she added during a briefing Monday. “We do not believe that we are yet seeing the cases that stemmed from the Christmas holiday. This, sadly, and the cases from the recent New Year’s holiday, is still before us, and hospitals across the region are doing everything they can to prepare.”

Throughout the coronavirus-clobbered county, hospitals are moving to rapidly discharge ill patients who, in normal situations, would stay for continued observation. That has helped, but officials fear the flood of new patients — many with COVID-19 — is outpacing their ability to move less critical patients out.

-Maskholes: On Sunday, anti-mask protestors stormed the Westfield Century City and a Ralph's Grocery Store in Los Angeles, reports Ruben Vives and Hayley Smith at the Times.

Videos on social media showed the group without masks walking through a Ralphs grocery store and arguing with customers. In one video, a man can be seen rejecting an offer of a mask, stating, “I don’t need that; I don’t wear masks.”

One man said he tested negative and called a customer at the grocery store a “mask Nazi.” An unmasked woman tried to ram her shopping cart into a masked man, claiming that he hit her, and was later seen kicking the man in a checkout line.

“Come on, patriots, show him what’s up,” she could be heard saying on the video.

The group then headed to the Westfield Century City mall, where they chanted, “No more masks,” and tried to enter stores but were stopped by employees. On several occasions, the group got into verbal altercations with workers.

Los Angeles police officers were present to “keep the peace” during the demonstration, according to Officer Rosario Cervantes, a spokeswoman for the LAPD. No arrests were made, but two battery reports were taken, she said.

-Vaccine triage: The LAT's Anita Chabria reports on how a hospital in Mendocino County responded when the freezer storing vaccines went kaput.

At 11:35 on Monday morning, senior staff at Adventist Health Ukiah Valley Medical Center in Mendocino County were holding their first 2021 executive meeting when the hospital pharmacist interrupted: The compressor on a freezer storing 830 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine had stopped working hours earlier, and the alarm meant to guard against such failure had failed.

The doses were quickly thawing.

The Moderna vaccine is shipped and stored at frozen temperatures, and stays stable up to 8 degrees Celsius in a regular refrigerator for up to 30 days. But once it reaches room temperature, as it did in the Adventist freezer, it must be used within 12 hours. By the time the freezer problem was discovered, the vials had been creeping towards warm for some time.

...

With the minutes ticking down, the medical team made the decision that the goal would be to inject every dose, regardless of state guidelines. The medical team felt that “the more people we vaccinate just brings us closer to herd immunity,” said [hospital spokesperson Cici] Winiger.

Winiger got on the phone, trying to give the shots first to those on the priority lists. One local elder care facility took 40 doses for staff and the hospital’s chief medical officer drove them to the facility himself.

About 200 doses belong to the county, and were being stored by the hospital. Winiger said those doses were returned to the county.

Lt. John Bednar, who helps run the county jail, said his facility received 97 of those doses at about 1 p.m. The jail has been experiencing an outbreak, with about three dozen inmates out of 250 currently positive, he said. About a dozen staff have also fallen ill with the virus.

Faced with only an hour to use the shots, sheriff’s officials decided to administer them to staff and front-line personnel because they didn’t think there was enough time to gain consent and organize a safe protocol for inmates. Four county medical staff began giving the shots, said Bednar.

CHURCHES: Politico's Josh Gerstein reports on the Ninth Circuit hearing yesterday on the state's limitations on religious services. The case is based on the spring orders of capacity limitations of indoor services rather than the ban for those counties in regions under the state stay-at-home order.

A federal appeals court panel appears poised to find that Gov. Gavin Newsom's monthslong coronavirus limits on houses of worship violate the religious freedom rights of Californians, but a majority of the judges on the case sounded unlikely Monday to immediately reverse tighter stay-at-home restrictions imposed last month due to a record surge in infections.

At times during a spirited argument session Monday afternoon, the three judges of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals seemed to spar with each other about aspects of the state's ban on indoor worship services.

Judge Morgan Christen, an Obama appointee, expressed agreement with Judge Diarmuid O'Scannlain, a Reagan appointee, that aspects of the so-called blueprint Newsom announced last April are likely unconstitutional under standards the Supreme Court set out in a 5-4 decision in November about New York's limits on religious observation.

"The Supreme Court took a very strong exception to a numerical cap imposed without regard to the size of the facility," Christen said.

"Why does it have to be a total ban?" O'Scannlain asked, noting that indoor worship is banned even if a church has massive capacity. "Why should the rules be identical, regardless of the size?"

"Our experts have said when you have the virus as widespread as it is and raging as it is ... any indoor gatherings just pose too great of a risk," California Deputy Attorney General Todd Grabarsky said.

"It's very troubling," Christen responded. "I have telegraphed that I'm troubled by that part of the blueprint."

However, Christen said the court did not have enough written arguments from the state and religious freedom advocates about the stay-at-home orders the state imposed on Dec. 3 after infections surged and intensive care unit capacity dwindled.

CASINOS: For KQED, Lakshmi Sarah looks at the conditions in the state's tribal casinos. As with several other stories over the last few months, employees are worried but fear leaving the work and associated health benefits. Meanwhile, the Chron's Tara Duggan writes that if you want indoor dining, you can get your appetite sated at some casino restaurants although many are closed.
