Guten tag! Fun fact, I took German during my abbreviated high school career. What a north Orange County white kid thing to do. I think "guten tag" is about as much as I remember. I then took Spanish at Orange Coast College and eked by. The Spanish I know is mostly from time in Mexico or interactions with speakers of primarily Spanish in everyday life. I still have to use Google Translate for messages with people I've met in Mexico and keep in touch with on Facebook.

After almond vanilla black tea when I first got up at 5, now at 8 I am enjoying a cream caramel oolong for the first time. Love The Allspicery! (Just local business love and I don't get or ask for discounts or anything for sharing.)

Well, that was a pretty boring Super Bowl. Indeed I was joking about the Kings and Clippers yesterday and then the Kings steal one at Staples Center, moving into a tie with the Warriors for the 8th spot in the Western Conference playoff hunt. Of course, the Kings still have 13 more games, but this was a great back-to-back after beating the Nuggets on Saturday.

As for the Super Bowl, if you were like me and said WTF?!? to the halftime show, you might enjoy San Francisco's Metallica from the special Colbert last night. Or, while speaking of GOATs (greatest of all time for those not sports obsessed), there's always the GOAT halftime show by Prince in 2007. I still can't believe that Prince and neither of the twins didn't slip on the wet stage amidst driving rain in their heels.

Because many of you stepped up with renewals and additional support, I was able to spend some of my Christmas money on myself over the weekend. I ordered a headboard and bed skirt (about time after 6 years here), a new pair of jeans and socks, a new set of towels and sheets, and N95 masks.

Not exactly a trip to Mexico City (where the pandemic is particularly sad right now), but it'll make for a happier time while we wait for the pandemic to truly be under control.

I also have a new working printer for the first time in years and have labels arriving tomorrow. Since I can't distribute the dozens of Nooner mugs left in my garage, I look forward to getting them out to the great folks who came in over the last 8 months with significant extra support to keep The Nooner alive while advertising has taken a dive. Be patient, as it'll likely take a couple of weeks to get them all out as I'm already working 12- to 16-hour days and haven't yet figured out how to train The Nooner hamsters how to type, print labels, and pack boxes just yet. Fortunately, I've figured out the USPS Click-N-Ship service with pickup from Nooner Global HQ, so mugs are starting to roll out today.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Several folks have asked before if they could buy a Nooner mug, which I gave out to Capitol members and staff who are Nooner subscribers as well as podcast guests in 2019. If I any left after sending them to significant supporters receive theirs, I may make them available for purchase and might consider another order, perhaps through a GoFundMe. We'll see and I appreciate the interest.

COVID-19: California added 164 deaths yesterday for a total of 44,153 since the pandemic began. As usual, the numbers are likely lower due to weekend reporting lags. However, the 14-day rolling average has dropped to 510.9 from a peak 14-day rolling average of 542.2 (-5.8%) on February 1.

-fingers crossed: Today marks the two-week point from the lifting of the regional stay-at-home orders, including the return to outside dining in 54 counties where it had been forbidden. Under county orders, outdoor dining returned with precautions throughout the week of January 25, with Los Angeles allowing beginning on January 25. While we likely won't know the impact, if any, of Super Bowl gatherings until next week and the week following, this week would likely see if there is an increase in the leading indicators of positivity rate and cases from the loosening of restrictions.

Meanwhile, at least we're not Tampa. Los Angeles County experienced the pandemic impact of similar championship celebrations following the wins by the Lakers on October 11 and Dodgers on October 27.

The celebrations in Tampa even came up during today's briefing by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, although she astutely avoided directly criticizing the Floridian celebrants.

-tiers for fears: Here are the statuses of California's 58 counties. You can see what the restrictions mean here, although county health orders may be stricter than the state.

  • purple (widespread): 54 counties
  • red (substantial): 1 county (Mariposa)
  • orange (moderate): 3 county (Alpine, Sierra, Trinity)
  • yellow (minimal): 0 counties

...more COVID-19 coverage after the jump.

-school daze in SF: Facing a lawsuit from the SF Board of Supervisors, district officials and union leaders reached a tentative agreement yesterday on a plan to return to in-person instruction. Tatiana Sanchez and Jill Tucker report for the Chron:

A key component of the agreement allows a return to classrooms once the city reaches the red tier, the second most restrictive level of California’s reopening blueprint, if vaccinations against the coronavirus are made available to on-site school staff. If the city progresses to the orange tier, a less restrictive category with “moderate” virus spread, teachers and other staff would return without demanding vaccinations.

...

The agreement will go before the Board of Education on Tuesday. It’s the first significant movement toward return to in-person instruction for the district’s 52,000 students, and offers frustrated families hope that at least some schools and classrooms will be open before summer break.

Since San Francisco currently remains in the purple tier, the state’s most restrictive, reopenings presumably would still be down the road under the deal announced Sunday. When the time comes, county health officials also would have to sign off on the reopening details.

While the development doesn't provide any signal as to when schools will return, it may be enough for the judge to hold off on issuing a writ of mandate sought by City Attorney Dennis Herrera to order the school district to adopt a plan for reopening. However, the devil is in the details and city leaders may not back down.

“This is progress, but it’s not enough,” John Coté, spokesman for the City Attorney’s Office, said Sunday. “We have not seen the details of any agreement, and so far this raises more questions than answers. There does not appear to be any agreement on classroom instruction and schedules, for example. The school district would need to share the whole plan and show us that it is concrete and meets the requirements of state law.”

AGstakes: For CalMatters, Laurel Rosenhall looks at how the role of the state Attorney General changes after no longer having Trump to sue 100+ times and what it means for possible a possible appointment by Governor Newsom if Xavier Becerra is confirmed as Biden's HHS secretary.

California’s next attorney general will likely turn the focus inward. The office has huge responsibilities within the state, including consumer protection, gambling and firearms regulation, internet privacy enforcement and criminal investigations. 

“AG’s are really an often unknown, often overlooked, but very critical component to state and national governance,” said Samantha Corbin, a Sacramento lobbyist whose “Age of AG’s” podcast examines attorneys general around the country.

Under a new law signed last year, the California attorney general also will be tasked with investigating all deadly police shootings of unarmed civilians. It’s one reason civil rights advocates are pressuring Newsom to appoint an attorney general who will take a more active role in rooting out police misconduct — something Becerra largely declined to do. 

“I really would like a robust Department of Justice taking the lead on this issue to hold police accountable,” said Kate Chatfield, senior legal analyst at The Appeal, which advocates for progressive changes to the criminal justice system.

The attorney general is also the state’s top cop, and traditionally comes to the job with a law enforcement background. So Newsom is also facing pressure from prosecutors and police — though they are more discreet about it.

“At such a critical time, with so many issues facing law enforcement and our communities, above all else we need an Attorney General with public safety experience who can bring groups together to find solutions,” Eric Nunez, president of California Police Chiefs Association, said in a statement to CalMatters.

Newsom will not offer any hints as to he is considering until after Becerra is confirmed by the United States Senate. While Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions is holding a confirmation hearing on Thursday, it is for the secretaries of Education and Labor, while no hearing has been set to consider Becerra's nomination despite the pandemic.

PADILLA: Newly sworn in United State Senator and former Secretary of State Alex Padilla has two years to prove that he deserves election to a full term as California's junior Senator. McClatchy's Kate Irby looks at how he is positioning himself to satisfy voters next year.

“It’s never easy to run statewide in the state of California. No one makes it easy to hold down an incredibly powerful, important Senate seat,” said Rep. Tony Cárdenas, D-Los Angeles, a longtime friend of Padilla’s, adding that he still thought Padilla would be able to win in 2022.

“Far too often, it’s a good-hearted individual who gets hoodwinked, and Alex is an amazingly good-hearted individual,” Cárdenas added.

[In addition to Cárdenas, Padilla also has spoken with Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California, multiple times, both before and after his swearing in. She indicated the two of them were approaching their roles as a partnership. Padilla worked in a field office for Feinstein early in his political career.

“My advice was to put his head down and really dig into the material, especially for his committee assignments,” Feinstein said in a statement to McClatchy. “His background as a former Secretary of State will serve him well on the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee and being on the Environment and Public Works Committee is important for California, particularly as we work to address climate change.”

Padilla is taking a spot on the high-profile Judiciary Committee, which Vice President Harris just vacated. He also has spots on the committees on Budget, Rules and Administration, Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and Environment and Public Works.

While the field for Republicans isn't particularly strong, it is quite possible that a legitimate Democrat could join in the top-two primary scheduled for June 7, 2022. In the June 2018 primary, 34 candidates were on the ballot to challenge Senator Dianne Feinstein. In that election, former State Senate President Kevin de León ran. Feinstein garnered 44.2% of the vote and de León received 12.1%, advancing them to November. The Republican with the most votes was Erin Cruz.

Padilla doesn't have nearly the baggage that Feinstein does. de León ran from the left and had a voting record to criticize, Feinstein has personal baggage related to her husband's investments, and at the time, she had served 23 years in the Senate.

That said, beyond U.S. Senate, there are two statewide races next year that do not have an elected incumbent -- Secretary of State and Controller. There are 6 state senators with term limits in 2022 and 39 state assemblymembers with term limits in 2024. And, we may have folks displaced by redistricting.

Padilla is clearly a favorite to be elected to a full term in 2022, but in this environment, anything is possible.

IMPEACHMENT AND CA REPS: In the LAT, Melanie Mason looks at the different ways to California Republican members of Congress in similarly competitive districts handled the impeachment vote and the response amidst the drama that threatened House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY] (R-, which she survived but led to a rebuke from her state party GOP.

In a lengthy Jan. 30 op-ed in a local newspaper, [Mike Garcia,] the Santa Clarita Republican and former Navy fighter jet pilot denounced the blowback on social media that branded him “a seditionist, a traitor, or even worse.”

Roughly 150 miles to the north, Rep. David Valadao also had some explaining to do after voting to impeach President Trump for his part in inciting the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol. He, like Garcia, was disparaged by some constituents as a traitor.

Two votes in Congress in successive weeks — one to certify Biden’s election and another to impeach the president — snared the two California Republicans into the pitched battle over the future of their party: whether the GOP will demand allegiance to Trump or break from his influence.

On one side sits Garcia and the majority of House Republicans, who on Jan. 6 aligned with Trump in rejecting the will of the voters in multiple states. On the other is Valadao, nine other GOP representatives and a handful of GOP senators who consider Trump’s conduct leading up to the Capitol riot to be an impeachable offense.

EDD FRAUD: The Bee's Sam Stanton reports on what officers conducting raids among known gang members are finding and it goes beyond the usual drugs, cash, and guns.

Officers also found a notebook with the handwritten title “Fraud Bible/Methods,” a lists of online Dark Web accounts and what appeared to be a note about a magnetic credit card reader that could be purchased from Amazon for $109.

“I’ve never seen something like this,” said Marc Marquez, chief deputy for Sacramento’s probation department, as he studied the “Fraud Bible” set out on the suspects’ bed along with other items. “But if you look at it, that’s your credit card security (information), ATM skimmer, Dark Web stuff.”

And this is how somebody applied in my name at my dad's Orange County address where I haven't lived for 26.5 years.

A month before that arrest, part of a regionwide sweep that resulted in seven arrests and several suspected EDD fraud cases, a probation search at a home on South Watt Avenue turned up another 9 mm ghost gun, more than $58,000 in cash and 38 EDD cards.

Other agencies in the area have reported similar finds, multiple fraudulent EDD cards along with firearms in the hands of convicted felons, results that law enforcement officials say leads them to one conclusion: criminals are using funds from the growing EDD fraud scandal to buy weapons.

“They’re using the money to buy guns,” Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert said. “I can only tell you that there’s a lot more violence on the streets right now.

Never say that on The Wire...

HOUSING: In the Chron, Shwanika Narayan and J.K. Dineen write that the pandemic the hopes of Bay Area leaders hoping to transition already-beleaguered shopping malls into much-needed housing in the Bay Area.

Nearly a year into the pandemic, the plan to resuscitate the Bay Area’s dying shopping malls is itself on life support, the victim of plummeting apartment rents and uncertainty around everything from entertainment to office work to brick-and-mortar shopping.

The challenges have caused some Bay Area mall owners to shelve redevelopment plans, while others cling to the hope that inoculated consumers will once again want to browse, dine and live at revived urban shopping malls.

Not facing plummeting rent is the Sacramento region and a similar discussion is happening about the future of Arden Fair, the closest comprehensive mall near downtown Sacramento. Nordstrom didn't return after the March 19 stay-at-home and Sears plans to close its doors for good.

WILDFIRES: In The Bee, Dale Kasler and Ryan Sabalow report on a new study on how the fire in the Butte County city of Paradise became so catastrophic even though the town of over 26,000 residents before the 2018 Camp Fire was well-prepared. The Department of Finance estimated population for the town as of January 1, 2000 was 4,631.

The Butte County town had an evacuation plan and emergency-notification systems. Paradise, neighboring communities and the county had undertaken “vegetation management” programs to reduce wildfire hazards.

Yet for all its preparation, Paradise wasn’t truly ready for something like the Camp Fire.

Within minutes on the morning of Nov. 8, 2018, the town was overwhelmed by a fire burning with a ferocity that defied belief. In more than a dozen spots, the fire quickly created “burnover events” in which residents were trapped in their homes or cars and unable to escape the flames. The Camp Fire killed 85 people and destroyed more than 10,000 homes and other buildings, leaving much of Paradise in ruins.

“Very few people appreciate how quickly things developed,” said Alexander Maranghides, lead author of a new federal study on the Camp Fire’s swift and lethal progression through Paradise.

The 421-page report, released Monday by the federal government’s National Institute of Standards and Technology in cooperation with Cal Fire, represents arguably the most exhaustive look at the deadliest wildfire in California’s history and the costliest disaster — anywhere on earth — in 2018. Total damages from the Camp Fire have been estimated at more than $16 billion.

...

Among the report’s most startling conclusions: The seven miles that separated Paradise from the source of the fire, rather than serving as a buffer, actually made things worse, enabling the fire to gather fury as it approached the town.

The distance meant “the fire front has more time to develop and expand,” Maranghides, a fire protection engineer, said in an interview. “We had a full hit on the east side of Paradise.”

The report comes as California, struggling with drought-like conditions, confronts another potentially difficult wildfire season.

WATER WARS: Now that Gavin Newsom, who ran for governor in 2018 pledging to end the perennially contentious wars among water interests, can now make progress with Joe Biden in The White House with Kamala Harris by his side? Dale Kasler and Ryan Sabalow write for The Bee today:

Shortly after taking office two years ago, Gov. Gavin Newsom promised to deliver a massive compromise deal on the water rushing through California’s major rivers and the critically-important Delta — and bring lasting peace to the incessant water war between farmers, cities, anglers and environmentalists.

To emphasize his point, Newsom announced at his first State of the State address that he was replacing a key regulator who hadn’t bowed to the peace process. Later, he vetoed a bill that would have obligated California to battle the Trump administration on practically any environmental issue, including Trump’s desire to pump more water from the Sacrament-San Joaquin Delta, the fragile hub of the state’s water delivery system.

Since then? Not much. The governor appears to have so far fallen into the same fate as governors before him with grand ambitions over California’s most precious resource. The modern version of California’s water war is now a quarter-century old, with no clear end in sight.

His top environmental advisors say negotiations continue on the grand bargain, which was first envisioned by Newsom’s predecessor, Jerry Brown, at the tail end of his governorship. But they acknowledge that talks have stalled over the past year, largely because of rancorous relations with the federal government — a crucial partner in any California water deal. With Trump gone and Democrat Joe Biden in the White House, Newsom’s advisors believe conditions are ripe for an agreement.

Still, coming to an agreement as promised will require Newsom’s most artful negotiating skills. He’ll have to get past decades of fighting and maneuvering, at the same time California is continuing to recover from the worst wildfire season in modern state history and a pandemic that has since killed more than 42,000 state residents.

Outstanding article for those most interested in the many issues that make compacts so difficult.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE: In the Times, Anita Chabria and James Queally look at the different approaches district attorneys in California are taking toward criminal justice reform.

[J]ust hours after being sworn in, [Los Angeles District Attorney George] Gascón delivered to his backers: He announced a slew of policy directives that barred prosecutors from seeking the death penalty, trying juveniles as adults, attending parole hearings or filing most sentencing enhancements that can increase a defendants’ prison term.

Nearly as quickly, the news instigated a brawl among California’s public prosecutors, with the organization representing 57 out of the state’s 58 district attorneys questioning both the legality and wisdom of Gascón’s mandates. Now, many of the state’s old guard of district attorneys are openly sparring with reformer colleagues in a power struggle that could shape criminal justice in California and other states.

“It’s a showdown of exactly how much power one branch of government has to override other branches,” said Sacramento County Dist. Atty. Anne Marie Schubert, who opposes Gascón’s reforms as overreach that ignore victims’ rights. “We are elected to enforce the law, not make the law.”

“We are moving exactly in the direction that the voters of California have asked us to move in,” countered Contra Costa County Dist. Atty. Diana Becton, who has been a force in progressive reforms. “We’ve done it the other way for a really, really long time.”

Speaking of Becton, we learned this weekend that she hosted a wedding party with dozens of people last summer that may have violated public health orders. Dustin Gardiner reports in the Chron:

Becton, who is considered a contender to be appointed California’s attorney general, said she hosted the party in the backyard of her El Sobrante home on Aug. 1 to celebrate her marriage to her new husband.

A note left on neighbors’ doors warned that “probably 20 to 30 additional cars” would be parked on the street that day.

Becton told The Chronicle that the event was a small, outdoor wedding and adhered to state and county restrictions, which allowed for outdoor religious and cultural events including weddings, but not receptions or after-parties. Parties that bring together people from numerous households were banned then and still are, according to the state Department of Public Health.

Becton’s wedding was followed by “music, yes, but I did not have a big party,” she said. She said she served a meal and wine to her guests.

Guests wore masks and maintained social distancing, Becton said, an account that one neighbor confirmed. Medical experts caution, however, that people are prone to let their guard down at such gatherings and remove their masks while celebrating or eating and drinking.
