Antioch infant dies in car by Dave Roberts Staff Writer A 7-month-old Antioch girl was found dead Sunday afternoon in a vehicle parked in the lot at In Shape Sports Club on Lone Tree Way. She had been left in the car seat overnight in the driveway of her home. The parents, who were distraught when interviewed by police, “both work two jobs, and both thought the other parent had the baby,” said Antioch Police Sergeant Diane Aguinaga in a press re-

lease. “The father woke up and went to the gym, thinking all was fine. When the mother awoke and checked on her children, she discovered that the baby was not in her crib. She called the gym, where her husband was working out. He was alerted by gym staff, ran outside to his vehicle, and discovered his child deceased.” The girl had been in the car since 11:30 p.m. Saturday and was discovered just after 2 p.m. on Sunday. The temperature dropped to 52 degrees during the night and reached 78 degrees the follow-

ing afternoon. The couple’s other child, age 2, was placed into the care of Children and Family Services while the investigation continues. “Our best estimate is it will probably be about a month before we can bring it to the DA’s office so they can make a decision on whether or not they want to file charges” for child endangerment, said Lt. Leonard Orman. Anyone with information can contact Detective Santiago Castillo at 925779-6933.

BUSINESS

Ice cream of the crop by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Bruce and Gerry Dake know a thing or two about running a business, having served up cold creamy treats at Baskin-Robbins in Brentwood and Antioch for more than 15 years. The Dakes, who own the two local Baskin-Robbins franchises, were recently honored for their community marketing efforts at the 2010 Dunkin’ Brands/BaskinRobbins U.S. Global Conference, an honor that caught Gerry by surprise. “I got a call from my husband, and he said, ‘Guess what?’” Gerry recalled. “And all I could think was ‘oh great, what’s wrong? Did something break down?’ But then he tells me we’re going to New Orleans for this conference and Baskin-Robbins wants to honor us for our marketing strategies. I didn’t even believe him. It wasn’t until I received an e-mail from the company that it became real. It was such a surprise to be selected – such an honor.” Out of the hundreds of Baskin-Robbins franchise owners in the United States, the Dakes were selected to share their community-minded marketing strategies at the convention, which was attended by hundreds of global Baskin-Robbins franchisers. BaskinRobbins flew the Dakes out to the New Orleans convention, where they mingled with franchisers from Japan, Korea and India, sharing “war stories” and swapping ideas.

Brentwood and Antioch Baskin-Robbins owners Gerry Dake, center, and her husband Bruce were honored for their community-minded marketing strategies at the 2010 Dunkin’ Brands/Baskin-Robbins U.S. Global Conference held in New Orleans last month. While many local businesses, even franchises, are struggling during the recession, Gerry said she and her husband are holding their own. Prior to the downturn of the economy, as new ice cream and yogurt shops opened around town, the Dakes were forced to develop creative marketing strategies – strategies that appear to be working. “You need to go beyond your four walls,” Gerry said. “You need to give people a reason

to come to your store. And to do that, you need to know your community and you need to know what they want. So that’s why we do special promotions and give out coupons. We know that’s what the people want. You need to come up with ideas to get people in your store. Why should they choose your store over the competition?” As franchise owners, the Dakes set their own prices and have the liberty of offering

their own special promotions. One of the most successful programs the couple recently created was daily specials. While the Brentwood and Antioch Baskin-Robbins stores have been known for their Tuesday $1 scoop nights, the Dakes began offering daily specials about two years ago. Each day, the Dakes offer a bargain on such items as banana splits, Blasts and soft serve sundaes. But what truly sets the Dakes apart from other Baskin-Robbins franchises is their unwavering devotion to the community. For years, they have hosted fundraisers to help support local schools and nonprofit organizations such as the Boy Scouts of America, in what Gerry describes as a win-win partnership. During fundraisers, the Dakes donate 20 percent of the event’s profits to the organization. No fliers or special code words are needed to participate, so everyone can help out, whether they’re purchasing an ice cream cone or an ice cream cake. Gerry said school fundraisers are particularly popular. When teachers get behind the counter to help with ice cream orders, students get a kick out of turning the tables and issuing the orders. On Wednesday, April 28, all Baskin-Robbins stores across the county will be participating in a fundraiser for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF), offering see Ice cream page 9A

Antioch resident wins Idol by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

It didn’t have quite the glamour and prestige – or snarky criticism from Simon Cowell – of “American Idol,” but Sunday’s East County Idol competition at the El Campanil Theatre provided a nice variety of vocal talent and a win for Antioch resident Storm Lever. Lever, a junior at Bentley High School in Lafayette, put everything into Whitney Houston’s ballad “I Have Nothing.” The song builds to several crescendos, which Lever nailed to the cheers of the audience. It concludes, “I have nothing, nothing, nothing/If I don’t have you.” It’s safe to say that Lever has something, something, something when it comes to singing, and she definitely had the audience. In addition to bragging rights as this year’s best singer in East County, the win netted Lever $400. The runner up, winning $200, was Jillian Uy, a Deer Valley High senior who sang an impassioned version of the Etta James classic “At Last.” Tying for third place and earning $100 were Ashley Goins, a Deer Valley High junior who sang “If I Ain’t Got You,” and Xavier Ali Travis, an Antioch High senior who did an excellent job on the challenging, dramatic Stephen Sondheim song “Being Alive” from “Company.” Other standouts among the 18 performers were Jordan Smith, a senior at Berean Christian High, who scaled the windmill heights with the inspirational “Impossible Dream” from “Man of La Mancha,” and

Antioch resident Storm Lever definitely has something as she sings “I Have Nothing” in her prize-winning performance at this year’s East County Idol. Katelyn Allen, a freshman at Freedom High, who bravely sang an a cappella version of “Amazing Grace,” achieving her goal (as stated in the program) of spreading her love of God to the audience. This was the third East County Idol competition. The events have been spon-

sored by the Antioch Music Foundation, which was formed 4½ years ago to support music education in Antioch schools. Thus far the foundation has donated $90,000 in the form of cash to teachers to buy and repair instruments, scores of musical instruments (including six pianos) and concerts such as Ken Bergman’s popular “Percussion Discussion” and a world music performance by San Francisco Cultural Odyssey. While waiting for the judges to tally their votes, Foundation President Walter Ruehlig told the audience of about 400 that the “typical music teacher gets in a good year $100 to repair instruments. That doesn’t go very far.” He added that the purpose of East County Idol “is to serve as a platform for our youthful talent, so they can showcase that talent and have an opportunity to hone their public presence skills.” The nonprofit foundation is always ready to accept donations of cash and instruments. “One thing that’s fairly easy to do is to go up in the attic or sort through the garage and find that instrument that your son or daughter may have used years ago and has fallen by the wayside as they went to college or other aspects of their life,” said Ruehlig. “If they need repairs, we will do that, and then will donate them to the schools for deserving students.” The Idol show will be televised May 8 at 8 p.m. on Comcast Channel 24.

GOOD NEWS ON CA FORGIVEN DEBT TAX

Photo by Ger Erickson

Donner Creek is funneled through a mini canyon along Mt. Diablo’s lower elevations. Strategic infusions of rain have kept the music of water echoing throughout the mountain in this memorable spring of 2010.

Outside from page 6A face. Here’s your ultimate picnic spot: below you the falls whoosh like wind in the trees. In addition to the water show, the trail takes you through corridors of violet shooting star, purple nightshade and lavender subdivisions of Chinese houses. Falls Trail feeds into Middle Trail. Continue down past the skeletal remains of manzanitas and clusters of burgundy-tinged Indian warrior. You’ll dead-end at Meridian Ridge Road. Go right, and shortly thereafter veer left onto Donner Canyon Road.

For a more private finale than the wide road trail can provide, look for a signpost on your right marked Hetherington Loop Trail. It’ll take you back down to those Donner Creek crossings you rock-hopped a couple hours earlier. Total mileage for the day: 6¼. Water. It enfolded us inside our mothers’ womb, revived our hominid ancestors as they stole sips along streams carving the primeval savannah. Our DNA is deeply encoded with its galvanizing sound and refreshing sensation. And now is the time to enjoy it up close – and close to home. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

I’ve written in this column before about the “phantom income” tax, which is tax due on forgiven debt. This can apply if you have a short sale, foreclosure, loan modification where principal was reduced, or many other situations where someone forgives part or all of your debt. As confusing as most people think the issue is, it’s actually even more confusing, because when we say “tax,” do we mean federal or state tax? That’s right, you have to worry about BOTH of them, and for a while this year, the federal and state tax laws on this issue were quite different. Even if you met an exemption from paying the federal tax, you may have been subject to state tax. However, there is good news! A recent law that was just passed brings the California law mostly into line with the Federal law in regards to forgiven debt. This new law covers forgiven debt through 12/31/2012. The main differences between the federal and state laws are around the amount of

debt and tax relief. The federal limit on the amount of debt is $2,000,000 (filing jointly)/$1,000,000 (filing single) and they place no limit on the amount of debt relief. The state limit on the amount of debt is $800,000 (filing jointly)/$400,000 (filing single) and a limit on tax relief of up to $500,000 (filing jointly)/$250,000 (filing single). Please note that this does NOT mean that all forgiven debt up to the limits are now non-taxable. You still have to meet the federal requirements of the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act of 2007 (mostly that it was your residence and that you didn’t pull money out beyond what you owed at the time you bought it) and/or that you meet one of the exemptions (insolvent, bankruptcy, etc.).

Reading program a Thunder-ous success Bristow sixth graders, from left, Aracely Ojeda, Ava Flaherty and Kayla Clarke, take their best shots on Stockton Thunder’s Oren Eizenman during a recent floor hockey game. The semipro Thunders came to Brentwood as part of a reading competition and school fundraiser.

by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

One of hockey’s greatest feats is the elusive hat trick – three goals scored by the same player in one game. Students at Bristow Middle School in Brentwood recently scored an academic hat trick of their own through the school’s Accelerated Reading program, and the reward was their own faceoff with the Stockton Thunder. “It was an amazing night,” said Shawna Borba, an eighth-grade teacher at Bristow. “The kids had a blast and the Thunder players were so cool. It was something they’ll never forget.” Looking for a creative way to fundraise in the wake of the state’s education budget cuts, Borba and other Bristow supporters approached the AA hockey team late last year about the organization’s Hockey for Kids program. The program, in which students get to play with the professionals, sell tickets to Thunder games for fundraising, and have an opportunity to meet the players, seemed like a win-win for everyone. “With the budget on everyone’s mind, we wanted to see if there was something we could do to help them (Bristow) raise a little money and offer the students something fun,” said Jessica Fillo, manager of game and team operations for the Stockton Thunder. “So we met with the school and came up with the reading competition, and it turned out to be a great thing.” The goal of the competition was to challenge students to read as much as they could in one month’s time. Through Accelerated Reading, students choose from an index of more than 120,000 titles, read the book and then take an online test. The beauty of the program, said Borba, is it’s all electronically tracked, which keeps the program organized – and honest. “The really cool thing about this program is that it

keeps track of everything for me,” said Borba. “So there are no questions about the honesty part. To make it fair, the winners would be the top six readers from each grade level, for a total of 18 kids. All the eighth-graders scored well over 100 points, and we had one seventh-grader score over 400 points. They really took it to a whole new level.” And on April 13 the payoff came in the form of hockey sticks, autographed jerseys and a spirited game of floor hockey. The students played against seven of the Thunder players, including star center Oren Eizenman, and won the game 13 to 12.

Students also raised approximately $800 from the event, which will go toward the Accelerated Reading Program. “The kids had such a great time,” said Borba. “These players gave up a lot of their time and we really appreciated it. It was nice for the students to meet the players, see and hear them talk about and promote reading and education. They talked about the importance of college and careers to explore. “We’re hoping they’ll come back again next year; it was a huge success.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

East County schools join Distinguished list by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Two East County grade schools – Oakley’s Iron House and Knightsen Elementary – have made the list of California’s 2010 Distinguished Schools. The East County campuses join 482 California public elementary schools as outstanding examples of academic excellence. The winning institutions were chosen from California’s more than 8,000 public schools based on their improved state and federal accountability scores, as well as their success in closing the achievement gap between high and lowperforming students. The application process also required schools to provide two signature practices or programs they have implemented at their sites to foster student growth. “It is an honor to recognize the schools, the students, parents, teachers and administrators who helped earn this most prestigious award,” said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell in a press release this week. “These schools have persevered despite state budget cutbacks that have cut deeply into the budgets of local school districts.” O’Connell called each of the principals of the winning schools personally with the news a few weeks prior to the official announcement. And for Iron House Principal Michele Gaudinier, waiting to share the news was not always easy. “I kept getting calls about the award from people who had heard the rumor, but I couldn’t say anything because I was sworn to secrecy,” said Gaudinier. “It’s like when the President of the United States calls you and asks you to keep something quiet – you do.”

But now that the news is official, Gaudinier is happy to sing the praises of her students, staff and school. “This is a great honor, a great morale booster for parents and all of us,” she said. “We’re very excited and very proud.” “It couldn’t have happened to a nicer school,” said Oakley Union Elementary School Superintendent Rick Rogers. “They (Iron House) have remained resilient and focused on the kids despite the hardships they’ve gone through. A lot of other staff might have gotten negative and angry, but they have remained positive and upbeat. “In my mind this is not just a normal distinguished school. This is a school that

has weathered a lot of challenges and yet they’ve stayed the course.” Knightsen School Superintendent Vickey Rinehart said the success of her district’s school is due in large part to the persistence and guidance of principal Theresa Estrada. “Theresa took over as principal (of Knightsen Elementary) in 2005 when I retired,” said Rinehart. “And she began the arduous task of working with staff on curriculum and instruction, and has continued to have staff focus on effective strategies. She is excellent at leading staff to analyze data and make instructional decisions as a result of the findings. This is not easy, but the rewards are immense.

Free Checking that’s still free! Why pay for your checking account if you don’t need to? “I love Free Checking because I don’t have a monthly fee and there are lots of freebies, like ATMs, debit cards, Online Banking and TCU’s Bill Pay service.” Monica, TCU member since 1991

Baskin-Robbins pledges to donate $100,000 to the NFFF, and the Dakes are doing their part to help, hosting fundraisers at both locations from 5 to 10 p.m. “In past years, we’ve had the Antioch fire chief get behind the counter and serve the customers,” Gerry said. “It’s just a blast. We all have so much fun, and it’s for a great cause.” Local organizations interested in setting up a fundraiser can call Gerry, preferably three weeks to a month in advance to make sure there’s room in the schedule. “We do as much as we can with what we have,” Gerry said. “We always try to help out when we can. The more you give back, the more the community responds to what you’re doing, and we do our best to be a good neighbor.” For more information about setting up a fundraiser, contact Gerry at the Brentwood Baskin-Robbins by calling 925-516-0231. The Dakes’ Baskin-Robbins stores are located at 1145 Second St. in Brentwood and 4538 Lone Tree Way in Antioch. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

“I am thankful to everyone who has worked so hard to ensure that all Knightsen students learn and grow each year,” said Rinehart. “We have been on a continual journey of student achievement, and every teacher in this district has given much of themselves to ensure that our students achieve each and every year. We should all be very proud that we are being recognized for this hard work.” The 2010 California Distinguished Schools will be honored at an awards ceremony and dinner at the Disneyland Hotel on June 4.

Brentwood civic center gets gusseted by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

When The Big One comes, Glenn Granada knows where he wants to be. “I always say that if an earthquake strikes, I want to be in a modern building like this,” said Granada, the Swinerton, Inc. manager who is running the city’s civic center construction project. In front of him, workers were carefully positioning some of the 706 tons of structural steel that will make up the main framework of the $36 million project. Developed in part through research done in the wake of the 1994 Northridge earthquake, Granada was showing off some of the attributes of the new center before they are forever hidden from view by the rest of the building. Those features include specially designed cross-bracing and gussets, a plate-and-beam assembly designed to allow the building’s key joints to withstand temblors. Once the basic erection is completed in about six weeks, the building will be squared up, tightened down and fastened together permanently. “You’re going to see a lot of welding going on in the next few weeks,” he said. Elsewhere on the site, well away from the heavy lifting, workers toiled away on other soon-to-be hidden aspects of the project. There are pits for the three elevators – operated by hydraulics instead of cables – foundation trenches, or “grade beams,” up to 8 feet deep bristling with reinforcing rods, and utility

Assistant City Manager Karen Chew said so far, things had proceeded smoothly. Digging had uncovered a few miscellaneous items, mostly bottles and trash, that had probably been buried there in the 1930s. Anything of possible historical value would be evaluated and possibly collected by the East Contra Costa Historical Society, she said.

Village Nurseries of Brentwood provided 12 large trees as part of its Free Trees For Schools Program. Finding shade on our blistering Brentwood school days can be difficult, and large shade structures can cost many thousands of dollars. Thanks go to Pioneer’s Student Council advisors Greg Carmon and Juliet Simens, who got the ball rolling for the event.

Delta YMCA files for bankruptcy Oakley donators out $1.8 million by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer The Mt. Diablo Region YMCA – which includes Oakley’s Delta Family location – has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, and Y officials are saying there will be no restitution for the $1.8 million raised in community donations for the now defunct expansion at the O’Hara Avenue site. “There won’t be any refunds,” said Rick Callaway, YMCA board of director chairman. “If accounting has sent out any (refund) checks, they shouldn’t have. If we had money, we’d still be rocking and rolling; that’s what people don’t understand.” YMCA officials announced last month that a continued downturn in the economy and a drying up of donations had caused the organization to close its Oakley and Clayton sites. On April 16, the organization announced it would be transferring the operations of its Pleasant Hill facility to the Berkeley-Albany YMCA, which will also take over some of the Mt. Diablo region’s childcare facilities, but none of the Oakley programs. The last day for childcare in Oakley will

“ I believe this is just going to get deeper and deeper as things develop. The walls are difficult to climb but we will scale every one. To see that property just sitting there – it aches. It’s not right.

Oakley Mayor Pat Anderson be June 3. “The Berkeley-Albany YMCA is better positioned to take this on,” said Fran Gallati, president and CEO of the Berkeley-Albany YMCA. “We’re optimistic; our goal is to impact more kids and families and to do it in a more sustainable, long-term way. We’re a pretty disciplined Y (Berkeley-Albany) and intent on achieving our goals.” In the wake of the site closures and recent bankruptcy announcement, plans for Oakley’s 25,000-square-foot expansion at the O’Hara Avenue site were subsequently shelved, leaving city officials to question Callaway’s claim that there will be no refunding of the community’s donations. “I’m not quite sure where we go at this point,” said Oakley Mayor Pat Anderson. “But I will say that I find this very difficult to understand or accept. We will open communications, we will do whatever we can, but we will not let this go. I’m

just incredibly disheartened.” Oakley Union School Superintendent Rick Rogers, who pledged $5,000 to the expansion program, said he is not necessarily surprised by the developments and doesn’t expect to see his contributions returned. “It was made in good faith at the time and it’s disappointing, but I think it is more unfortunate for the community because the idea was that it was a donation that was going out to the community,” said Rogers. “But will I trust the Y again? Of course not.” Callaway said that despite the community pledges of $1.8 million, only $788,000 was actually collected for the Oakley expansion project, and because the Y had already spent $1.8 million on improvements such as utilities, paving and architectural drawings, there is no money left over to return. “We spent more than we took in,” said Callaway. “I have talked with Pat

(Anderson) and everything I ever told her and the (city) council was what I was told. It is what it is; there is nothing illegal, immoral or unethical going on.” Perhaps, said Oakley City Manager Bryan Montgomery. “We don’t agree that there is $1.8 million worth of an investment there,” said Montgomery. “All those improvements were in the ground before any of those donations were solicited and received and those donations were for the new facility. The city will need to pursue our interests through the bankruptcy trustee.” Brentwood bankruptcy attorney Jim Price echoed Montgomery’s sentiments, saying that that the City of Oakley will most certainly be listed by the courts as “creditors owed,” but added, “They will likely have to just get in line with everyone else.” Also in question for Oakley is the status of the three modules at the O’Hara Avenue site that were used as temporary facilities for the Y until the planned expansion was completed. Anderson said that Y officials had originally said that the YMCA owned the portables, and that it was the organization’s hope that they could leave at least one of the buildings on site for the city’s use. Now Callaway is saying that the modules are encumbered by financing and will mostly likely become a see YMCA page 22A

Use a different Measure Editor: An open letter to Brentwood: Residents of Brentwood, if you don’t say No to Measure F, you are selling our hills to less than a dozen investors. If you move the urban limit line, those landowners and financiers get to build the business venture of their dreams, throwing out our General Plan for our western border and replacing it with their own development contract. Why would we do that? Our current urban limit line is preventing development in that area – not Antioch nor any other city can build there right now – that’s why they need you to move the line so very badly. The money they will spend will be exorbitant – their campaign materials, ads and phone calls won’t end. Hasn’t it always been the perception those with the most to gain will spend anything it takes? Yep. We all acknowledge Brentwood’s done a fine job in planning our city; yes it has, and our city has a great plan for our western border if we were to annex that land – it’s very different from theirs. They’ve more than doubled the housing from our design of 579 houses to 1,300 houses; they’ve increased the commercial uses to 35 acres and reduced open space by one-third. Our Brentwood General Plan, the plan that all residents can help to guide, calls for 40 percent parks and open space (150 acres), another golf

Correction Due to a typesetting error, a letter to the editor in the April 16 issue of the Press contained an incorrect number. The percentage of the Highway 4 Bypass construction paid for by fees on new development should have been cited as 88 percent.

course, bicycle and pedestrian paths and a true buffer along Deer Valley Road. A prominent gateway into Brentwood from the west, and road improvement is in our General Plan as well. Why would you accept their plan for that area in lieu of Brentwood’s own vision? The embedded development agreement in Measure F is binding and strikes our General Plan language. The California Supreme Court states: “Development agreements between a developer and a local government limit the power of that government to apply newly enacted ordinances to ongoing developments … the rules, regulations, and official policies governing permitted uses, density, design, improvement, and construction are those in effect when the agreement is executed.” Those hills would be in their control, not ours. If the landowners really wanted “a Brentwood address and city services” as they’ve told me, they wouldn’t have brought their request to us with strings attached and would be content with our City’s General Plan processes. Fellow voters, as we defeated Measure L with its faulty development vision, we can reject developer Measure F. It’s simply not right to expand an urban limit line for a special interest group for the project they think is appropriate to build on their land, and to have the nerve to call it Brentwood residents’ control. Let’s get our own measure on the November ballot, one that will annex that land into the city and guide our own General Plan for that area – planning we can impact, ideas in our control. We can do this. Vote No on Measure F. E-mail measuref-failsthetest@comcast. net for more information. Kathy Griffin Brentwood

Measure ‘F’ for failure Editor: A few “locals ” are seeking to control our urban limit line. These individuals and what they are planning to do will have huge control over what will happen to the 45,000 of us who live in Brentwood. It will affect our quality of life. They have circulated a petition (again) to try and annex their land to the City of Brentwood. They have used the emotionally laden argument of “school traffic” as the means to get those who have arms filled with groceries, children waiting, and under the pressure of families waiting at home or an appointment to sign a petition without disclosing the real meaning behind the need to put this on the June ballot. The plans for this area, if it were annexed to the city, include more high-

density housing. The voters in Brentwood have turned this idea down in the past for very good reason. Everyone knows having more of something does not help property values increase but rather further decreases them. Many people are buying our foreclosed homes as rental properties; few others are buying homes in Brentwood as their primary residence. Measure F will result in 1,300 more new homes, approximately 4,030 additional residents and 35 acres of retail/office/commercial space on 740 acres in the beautiful green hills of west Brentwood. The city has already approved 4,153 homes and 1 million square feet of retail/office/industrial space that has not yet been built. This is not what Brentwood needs. Measure F will lower our property values, bring more traffic and cram more students into our already overcrowded schools. These types of developers benefit from making promises that never come to fruition, like the Deer Ridge Golf Course clubhouse and maintenance building. None of the suggestions they have made in their professionally promoted advertising are actually part of the wording in the measure. I encourage everyone in Brentwood to read the measure and vote No. I have no desire to look like Antioch or Dublin, where developers have created blocks and blocks of homes on every hillside and valley available. These “locals” promoting Measure F and the resulting destruction of these western hills and wildlife corridor do not live in the neighborhoods in Brentwood. Why should we give up our green space in Brentwood when it was bought by developers as is? Does greed always win over the populous? Wise up, Brentwood! Ask the most important question of all: How did the City of Brentwood not plan for the egress and ingress of traffic for the two schools in the first place, and now how will they plan for it with 4,000 more residents? Did you know we could solve the traffic problem by widening Balfour and changing the existing streets leading into the schools? That is the petition we should all be signing! Patrick MacIsaac Brentwood

Optimism rekindled Editor: I’m not a big fan of politics, but once in a while, something really nice happens during a campaign. Such an event happened to me this past weekend. While I was doing some spring cleaning, my door bell rang. I answered it to find a very nice young man pass-

ing out a flyer supporting Measure F. He explained that he is a student at Heritage High. Quite eloquently, he said he supported Measure F because of the awful situation getting in and out of Heritage. F will extend American Avenue all the way to a widened and divided Balfour. He was very polite and energetic. We spoke for just a minute or two. I thanked him for taking the time to get involved and do something to help his community. I often worry about the future of our country. But, at moments like my discussion with the student from Heritage High, I feel optimistic again. Katie Menez Brentwood

Vote No on Measure F Editor: It should be very clear now to all Brentwood residents that Measure F is truly about one thing – Big Money – and nothing else after the costly mailers and unwanted phone pollster calls that many of us received this past week. They have made it very clear that they are willing to spend whatever amount of money it takes to mislead and lie to all of us as to the benefits of this measure when in actuality there are no benefits whatsoever. The two-sided mailer that was sent out the week of April 5 with Brian Swisher and Annette Beckstrand’s pictures on it, telling us that Measure F will get 100-percent control of our borders and allow Brentwood to have its own urban limit line, is once again a misleading lie. The city of Brentwood has is own urban limit line that was approved by the voters in 2005, and the same developers and landowners that were defeated in 2005 are back again lying to all of us for one reason – Big Money – and getting city control of this land has nothing to do with their primary objective. If all the proponents wanted was Brentwood to have control of that 740 acres, to protect it from county actions or Antioch, they would not have put in a development plan that includes the build-out they think is right for the area; they would have left out all the houses, not double them, all the commercial – left out all of it – so obviously, that’s not the case. Tom Koch was hired to pass this very thing, the same way he was hired to pass Measure K for Antioch. So keep one thing in mind: this is a Big Money project and the majority of the supporters behind this project have demonstrated in the past and currently that they don’t care about our quality of see Letters page 17A

Letters from page 16A life in the city of Brentwood and they certainly can’t be trusted. Just look at the voting history of supporters Chris Becnel city councilman and Bob Brockman city councilman and any confusion you may have on Measure F will be clarified very quickly. These two individuals have done nothing to help our city and our quality of life during their time in office, and the sooner they can be voted out of office the better off every resident of Brentwood will be. The picture is very clear on Measure F. Deep pockets are driving this measure and they wouldn’t be doing so if they weren’t going to make Big Money associated with it. Cost is not a factor to these people, and as long as they are able to mislead all of us into thinking this measure is a good deal for our city, they will continue to spend their money. Don’t get suckered into thinking this measure is good for our city because it isn’t. Vote No on Measure F in June. Johnny Merrill Brentwood

Measure F addresses problems Editor: Measure F may not be a solution to all of the issues confronting Brentwood, but it sure is a step in the right direction. We need jobs, investment and better roads. Measure F brings these forward. I trust our voters to make the right decisions for our community much more than any group of outsiders. Measure F gives us control. It’s obvious that property values are driven by low crime, good jobs, strong schools and high standards. Measure F supports all of these. What do the opponents of Measure F offer to help us out of our current problems? … Nothing. Jason Peterson Brentwood

backward, Mr. Stack. The reason that people defaulted on their home loans was because they had borrowed more than they could afford in the first place. Then when housing prices rose, these same borrowers compounded their error by using the equity in their homes as a savings account, using a second mortgage, or home equity loan, to buy personal property like new cars and boats. When these borrowers were unable to pay off their loans, and went into default. That is what started the downward spiral of the economy. The resultant loss of jobs came after the mortgage crisis, not before it, as you inferred. You had it right when you said “those poor credit loans were the first of a seemingly endless chain of dominos.” That chain of dominos caused a lot of people to lose their jobs, but the job losses came after the home loan debacle, not before it. And yes, a lot of our economy is related to growth. But growth needs to be orderly and controlled. The way it works is you build the infrastructure first, then the population growth pays for it; i.e., widen Balfour to Lone Tree and then develop the new housing west of town. Development fees from that housing will be used to pay off the municipal bonds and funding that was used to build the infrastructure. Once again, you got it backward. The current traffic mess on twolane Highway 4 Bypass is a perfect example of doing it wrong. There are a lot of people in Brentwood, including Mr. Stack and the ex-mayor – “the Concrete King” – who stand to gain directly from the passage of Measure F. The voters need to take a long, hard look at where the money is coming from to pay for the “Vote Yes on F” ad support. Like most ballot initiatives in California, following the money trail on Prop F will give the voters a real good look at who stands to gain the most from passage. This is not a citizen referendum, nor is it an issue of “control quality of design of future projects.” It is an issue of quality of life for those of us who live here. Bill Sumner Brentwood

Review Oakley’s General Plan

Suit could influence high school site

Editor: 68,000. That is the number of homes planned for Oakley. Almost double the current amount that exists in Oakley today. As I drive around that city, I imagine what this will look like and I am saddened. As I envision the crowded schools and traffic problems to come, I am worried. I am particularly worried about the density of the developments that are lurking in our future. The Land Use Element of the General Plan for Oakley describes building intensity and population density; the expectations of the citizens of Oakley and the protection of the varied remaining agricultural activities of Oakley, while ensuring a strong physical connection to the Delta. For every house we build there is a new car put on the road while people commute to other parts of the Bay Area to work. The more people, the greater the impact on the Delta and the surrounding environment. Removing agriculture and open space by adding high-density developments will not enhance the quality of living here or preserve our small-town feel. At least 2,400 people in the city of Oakley are concerned also. The Committee To Stop Rosewood collected signatures to let the City Council know the proposed density at Rose and Laurel was not what we expected in our city. The council was forced to listen. Yet the City Council of Oakley is moving forward with the rezoning of Rosewood Estates – even after 2,400 people signed a petition to say they wanted to lower the density from high to medium per the guidelines in the Land Use Element of the General Plan. The council voted to accept a zoning standard from the county guidelines that Discovery Builders put before them. We need to say No to the growth in our city and have a comprehensive review of our General Plan to get input from the current residents of Oakley. A review is long overdue. I truly do want a place for families to live in the heart of the Delta. Denise Morford Oakley

Editor: In response to Dave Robert’s article April 15 in the Press: A jury trial has been set for August to determine if the owners of the Delta and Sellers property (the current planned location of the fourth Liberty Union High School District high school site) should be entitled to $8 million over and above the $3 million paid for this site. There have been many objections, including mine, regarding this poor location for a fourth high school. I believe this lawsuit may provide a great opportunity for the LUHSD to reconsider this site. Again, I highly respect and honor our current and past board members for their hard work. Their direction has provided a great education for many young adults, including my own. However, this fourth LUHSD high school location I must disagree with, as I believe it will create a danger to the students and the traffic around it. As has been said before, there are substandard roads with no plan for upgrades soon, major railroad crossings that will not be modified, no place to eat off campus, no place to fuel, no public transportation, no city services, substandard fire resources, substandard police resources, agricultural spraying, and more. It is a bad location. The public will have a very hard time passing another (tax) bond to build a school at this site. To compound the problem, there is a possibility the property will cost another $8 million to the district (taxpayers) before anything further happens. I believe the school district, based on this lawsuit, should motion the court to invalidate the entire transaction, as there has not been a final agreed-on price. This would solve many issues all at once. The probable $11 million cost (not including attorney fees , etc.) could provide substantial improvements and expansions at the current high schools if invalidated. Using the $11 million for existing high school location expansions will allow time for a more indepth study for the fourth high school. The best area is closer to major see Letters page 18A

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Rehabilitation 203(k)...Explained With roughly 180 homes for sale in Brentwood, and nearly 100 fewer in neighboring Discovery Bay, our local real estate market is saturated with buyers but missing a crucial element – inventory. It doesn’t help matters that many homes for sale are shells of what they once were, torn apart by the previous owners out of anger and frustration. These previously proud owners were forced to view their home as the bank does – simply a number on a spreadsheet – and made a business decision to make money where they could. Left in their wake now stand homes not more than three years old missing sinks, stoves, lighting fixtures, water heaters, air conditioning units, even the furnace out of the attic in the worst cases. For would-be buyers these homes aren’t an option… why pay for a home only to then pay to repair the home is their rationale. Many times, to those in the dark about the Streamline 203(K), these cases turn into a three step process: find financing to purchase the home; find financing for the work needed to repair the home; and then find permanent financing in the form of a mortgage to finish off the project. However, before cutting homes in need of rehabilitation off of your list, or struggling to find loan options, consider the highly under used, but yet highly effective, Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Streamline 203(k). Homes that require under $35,000 in non-structural repairs are eligible for this often overlooked product, and, according to Brian D. Montgomery, Assistant Secretary for Housing to the Federal Housing Commissioner, the FHA Streamline 203(k) program can be used to replace/ repair the following items just to name a few: • Repair/Replacement of roofs, gutters and downspouts

• Repair/Replacement/upgrade of existing HVAC systems • Repair/Replacement/upgrade of plumbing and electrical systems • Repair/Replacement of flooring • Minor remodeling, such as kitchens, which does not involve structural repairs • Painting, both exterior and interior • Weatherization, including storm windows and doors, insulation, weather stripping, etc. • Purchase and installation of appliances, including free-standing ranges, refrigerators, washers/dryers, dishwashers and microwave ovens • Accessibility improvements for persons with disabilities In other words, homes that are deemed structurally sound but are missing key items such as a stove, or an entire kitchen, should be put back on your tour of potentials. The FHA Streamline 203(k) is simply another form of the FHA financing many East Contra Costa County buyers already plan to use, and just like a standard FHA loan, only requires a 3.5% down payment. Monies needed for repairs/replacement are kept in an escrow account after closing and already built into the purchase price. Imagine, finding the home and the neighborhood you’re looking for, and then being told you’ll also have free range to choose the updated materials throughout! If you have any real estate lending related questions or concerns, or wish to speak with a Streamline 203(k) expert, don’t hesitate to call or write. I’m always here to help and will be available all weekend. If you have any other real estate lending related questions or concerns I also welcome your call or email at anytime.

Letters from page 17A Oakley development near the Cypress corridor. Oakley officials have supported placing a high school in that area. There are improvement plans for roads, there is a new fire station planned, the city provides local police services, utilities are already installed, a huge Delta interpretative center is planned, agricultural pesticide use is less likely, the railroad crossing on Cypress has been improved, and one major development negotiation could result in a very reduced price (if not free) for land to build the new fourth high school. Motion the court to invalidate this transaction based on the $8 million lawsuit. It is the right thing to do and makes sense. John A. Gonzales Knightsen

The trees are said to grow approximately 20-25 feet tall and 25-35 feet in diameter, providing much-needed shade for many years at our school. This could not have been possible

without the help of many. I want to take a moment to thank all those who contributed and volunteered their time and efforts: • Greg Carmon and Juliet Simens, Pioneer Elementary School Student Council advisors and fifth-grade teacher and fourth-grade teacher, respectively. • Jenaro Martinez, groundskeeper for the Brentwood Union School District. • Wayne Sudweeks and son Braden Sudweeks donated their time and backhoe, saving us an enormous amount of time. Wayne is the brother of Larry Sudweeks, director of maintenance and construction at the Brentwood Union School District office. • Village Nurseries of Brentwood for providing the Free Trees for Schools program. • The Pioneer fifth-grade teachers. • Our Pioneer Parents’ Club. • The Pioneer Elementary School Student Council. • Our local Cub Scouts, including Troop 21. • And all the fifth-grade students and parents who volunteered their time and energy on Saturday! Thank you. On behalf of everyone at Pioneer, I am incredibly grateful. This simply could not have happened without your contributions.

Editor: On April 16, Liberty High School’s Leadership Class presented the 18th Annual Mr. Liberty competition. The show once again sold out, showing the dedication of the Brentwood community to this important charity event. This event could not have been possible without the support and donations of many local businesses and individuals. On behalf of the Leadership program, I would like to thank the following: His and Hers Formal Wear in downtown Brentwood has generously donated the tuxes of the Mr. Liberty contestants for the last few years. The kindness and generosity of Annette Beckstrand and her staff goes above and beyond the expectation. The young men involved looked classy and poised as a result of the sponsorship of this great Brentwood business. We truly appreciate their support. Oak Tree Screenprinting in Oakley generously donated the Mr. Liberty Tshirts worn by all contestants and event coordinators. Jaye Buhlis consistently provides quality, timely service for the various clubs and organizations on the Liberty campus. Diggers Diner graciously sponsored the Mr. Liberty breakfast this year. The management and staff at Diggers opened their doors to us at 7 a.m. and provided unmatched service and attentiveness. We hope that this will be a new Mr. Liberty tradition.

Every Thursday 5 – 8 PM

Additionally, Brentwood Florists and Gifts generously donated all flowers for the evening’s event, including bouquets for the winners, coordinators and crew. Their consistent donation to Liberty’s events, including Mr. Liberty, Liberty Idol and Homecoming, lessens the financial strain of our many events. Finally, we would like to thank the following businesses for their donation of gifts for the various winners within the Mr. Liberty competition. As a result of their donation, we were able to donate all funds raised to the Student Emergency Relief Fund (SERF). Thank you to Harvest Park Bowl, Delta Valley Athletic Club and Chapala Restaurant. The following individuals helped to ensure the success of Mr. Liberty 2010: Thank you to Morgan Wagner and Jillian Butler, who choreographed the group dance; the Mr. Liberty technical crew, including Toni Vargas, Hannah Johnson, Kayla Knowles, Morgan DuPee, Simon Holmes, Maria Larracas and Amanda Blum. Finally, I’d like to thank our emcees for the evening: John Romeis and Beth Decker. I cannot thank them enough for their efforts. As a result of the hard work of the above individuals and generous donations of local businesses, Liberty Leadership was able to raise over $3,700 for the SERF Fund. I hope that the community of Brentwood enjoyed this year’s Mr. Liberty and will continue to see Letters page 21A

Cruelty-to-canine mills Editor: Every year, millions of people buy puppies from puppy mills without even knowing it. This mistake can be avoided through public education and spreading awareness to shut down puppy mills once and for all. Many people do not even know what a puppy mill really is – a large dog-breeding facility with profit taking priority over proper care of the animals. The puppies are taken from the puppy mill and sold to pet shops, where they are then resold to the public. Housing up to a thousand dogs at one time, puppy mills are typically kept in poor, unsanitary conditions and are highly overcrowded. Often, breeders are deceptive and claim to be responsible caretakers when this is far from the truth. The online sale of puppies is now a large cause of such scams, allowing any breeder to sell puppies without a license. Dogs in puppy mills are kept locked up in small wire cages, with a substitute food that is very similar to sawdust, and rarely given fresh water. They are often left to live in their own waste and develop a number of different diseases and sicknesses. The parents are bred constantly. The mother dog is bred just about every six months until she is physically exhausted. The puppies are taken as young as six weeks, so mom never gets a chance to raise her pups. Once she can no longer produce offspring, she will most likely be killed.

THEPRESS.NET

Imagine your own dog being treated this way … These harsh conditions are a reality for thousands of dogs across the nation. All of the popular purebred dogs are victims to this cruelty, and as long as this business continues to be supported, puppy mills will continue to grow. The truth is, puppy mills are legal! Despite the obvious neglect and pain these animals suffer, there is minimal legal support regarding this issue. Until this changes, it is up to fellow dog and animal lovers to decide to educate themselves and others and take the steps necessary to save the lives of our best friends. When you are considering making a puppy a part of your home, make sure your money is not supporting the puppy mill industry. • Do not buy your puppy from a pet shop, even though they may look helpless and adorable. • If you decide to buy from the Internet, make sure you verify that what you see on the Web site is true. Ask questions that only a responsible breeder will be able to answer, such as requesting to see the breeding facility or meet the parents of your puppy. Always meet the breeder in person before you give them your money. • Make adoption from a local shelter your first option. Even if you are searching for a specific breed, many purebred dogs show up in shelters. Contact your local rescue group to inquire about any upcoming adoption events. For more information, visit The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Web site, www.aspca. org/fight-animal-cruelty/puppy-mills/, and the Humane Society of the United States Web site, www.humanesociety. org/issues/puppy_mills/.

It’s not fun to do if you’re by yourself, but when you do it together, it’s fun.” Fun, yes, but the decision to participate was nevertheless a no-brainer on a help-yourself basis, said Waneli Osorio. “This is our community; it’s where we live,” said the past president of Antioch High School’s Kiwanis Key Club, one of many organizations pitching in. “It’s a part of us.” And, according to some, it’s a part of Antioch that hadn’t been seen in a while. Organizer Dena Jeglum said she ran into a friend whose business had been a casualty of the economy, and

What will it take to ensure that after a very difficult economy that just as it’s coming back we don’t start losing those businesses that can’t hold on any more as they wait for this great road construction to happen. Put as much thought into the survival plan, not just the detours, as we put into the (highway) design theme. I’d like to hope that we will be involved and help that move forward in a positive way for

the all-for-one attitude evident that morning provided a much-needed boost. “We are so encouraged and hopeful for a community we thought had no hope left. We will be picking up trash with pride and smiles!” Jeglum quoted her friend as saying. “It brought tears to my eyes,” Jeglum added in her own words. The day’s momentum is likely to carry over. Police Chief Jim Hyde asked the crowd at the barbecue to get involved in the monthly Saturday morning clean-up run by the PD, and it could be that Keep Antioch Beautiful will be held several times per year by popular demand. “This is what we need,” said Davis, smiling and flipping another patty. “People want to take back the city of Antioch, and get it the way we want it.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

the businesses and taxes.” Lanphere raised her concerns after a presentation to the council by Susan Miller, director of projects at the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA), who is in charge of the highway widening project. Miller responded that the chamber and businesses affected by the construction would be brought into the information loop once the widening gets closer to Antioch. Currently they are working with Pittsburg businesses in the Loveridge Road area, which is the focus of the next phase of construction. “Until the contractor is on board and starts submitting his plan for how he is going to stage things, which can vary, we wait for that information,” Miller said. “You don’t want to start it too early. Things change, and you don’t want to engage people and have them panic a little bit too early. We want to make sure we

have the correct information. So we fully intend to engage the chamber.” Oakley City Councilman Jim Frazier, who sits on the CCTA board, said in an interview that he will be working to ensure that the disruptions are kept to a minimum and those most affected will be kept up to speed on what to expect. The good news, as far as harried motorists are concerned, is that the widening work – after a one-year hiatus to redesign the project to accommodate an eBART line in the highway median – will restart in June and be continuous until the highway is expanded to eight lanes (four in each direction) all the way to the Highway 4 Bypass. It’s scheduled to be completed by the end of 2014 if there are no snags in the funding. The Loveridge project, which picks up where the widening left off at Railroad Avenue and goes to Somersville Road, has received a low construction bid that is 30 percent less than originally estimated, saving $30 million in construction costs. A groundbreaking ceremony is tentatively scheduled for Friday, May 14. The project is expected to be completed in early 2014. The next phase of the widening – from Somersville Road to the Bypass – is so large

that it’s been broken into four segments: • Segment 1: the rebuilding of the Somersville Road interchange is expected to start construction at the end of this year or early next year. • Segment 2: construction bids for the Contra Loma Boulevard interchange and G Street overcrossing are scheduled to be advertised in January. Construction will begin sometime next year. • Segment 3A: bids for construction of a new Lone Tree Way/A Street interchange will be advertised in the summer of 2011. • Segment 3B: the Hillcrest Avenue interchange project will begin the construction-bid process sometime after that, depending on available funding. Much of the existing vegetation in the corridor will be removed to make room for the widening. The retaining walls along the highway will include artistic depictions of Delta vegetation and water scenes, while the sound walls will use the existing Mt. Diablo-like triangular motif but with more variety. Mayor Jim Davis was pleased with Miller’s update on the project, saying, “There definitely was some good news in there.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Anderson added that she is fearful these recent develops are just another chapter in what looks to be an ongoing saga: “I believe this is just going to get deeper and deeper as things develop. The walls are difficult to climb but we will scale every one. To see that property just sitting there – it aches. It’s not right.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Panthers take second match over Falcons by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

Photo by Jolly Hanson

Antioch’s Tyler Evans spikes the ball in a 3-1 victory over Freedom last week.

If Freedom’s volleyball team could limit its season play to everyone but the Antioch teams, as of last week it would be undefeated in league play. The Falcons have enjoyed a nice ride with the other BVAL teams in their first encounters, beating Heritage, Liberty and Pittsburg by a collective score of 9-1. But, as lopsided as their victories have been, they’ve been just as lopsided in defeat, losing their first two matches against both Antioch and Deer Valley by a collective score of 2-12. Last week Freedom hosted Antioch in a match in which the Panthers took the first two games 25-18 and 25-19, but the Falcons rallied to win the third game 25-21 before succumbing 18-25 in the final game. “It was a hard-fought match,” said Antioch Coach Rick Barton. “Freedom came out and played really good volleyball. I think our guys came in a little over-confident. They got challenged. But they rose to the occasion and managed to get the win.” According to Freedom Coach Kellie Goldberg, “It was a good match. Antioch played hard. I think there was a lot of calls that didn’t go in our favor. But all in all, we are excited to play them again at the end of the season.” Antioch, after a lackluster last season in which it went 9-13 overall and 7-7 in league play, is much improved this year. The recent win upped the Panthers’ overall record to 10-6 (6-1 in league play). The one league loss was to Deer

Valley, which Antioch played again on Tuesday, results of which were not available at press time. “They have a real good team, but hopefully we can challenge them this year, push them a little bit,” said Barton. The Panthers are benefiting this year from last year’s rebuilding program, in which they fielded five sophomores who are now juniors. “We’ve got a little experience,” said Barton. “They are really growing into and starting to understand the little things about volleyball that just come with experience. It’s hard to teach it in a gym or practice; you learn it by playing games or experience. They are starting to pick that stuff up now. They have the desire. They practice hard and want to learn how to play. They listen in practice and apply the things we are teaching them.” The loss dropped Freedom to 3-5 overall (34 in league play). “It’s been going pretty well,” said Goldberg. “Antioch and Deer Valley have been our only major competition. So we are hoping that in the third time around we can put an end to their victories over us. “The guys (on the team) are a lot of fun. They are really committed and they come out and play hard. We are looking forward to the rest of the season and hoping to come out a little bit better than where we are at right now.” Freedom faced Liberty on Tuesday and Heritage on Thursday and plays next on Tuesday, April 27, hosting Pittsburg. Antioch played Pittsburg on Thursday and hosts Liberty on Tuesday. Antioch and Freedom meet for the last time on May 4. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

The 10U NorCal Titans, front row from left, are Walker Brinkman, Jake Opelski, Anthony Beckstead, Dom Gallegos and Connor Capps; back row: Trevor Wilson, Jimmy Kabrich, Logan Huntze and Zack Jorgensen.

Titans stay torrid The 10U NorCal Titans have been on an impressive run this 2010 baseball season, adding another championship to their resumé at the recent USSSA AthruZ Championship, where they beat the Concord Patriots 10-9 at the Field of Dreams in Manteca. It was the Titans’ seventh championship in nine tournaments in this young season. Filling the Titan trophy case is hardware from The Halloween Havoc, Toys 4 Tots, Mather Tournament, TPR Baseball, President’s Day Super NIT and two USSSA AthruZ tournaments. The torrid run has seen the Titans rack up 32 wins against a mere five losses, and in the Super NIT Championship, the Titans qualified for the USSSA World Series in Denver. The elite team features players from the Brentwood area, including utility player Zack Jorgensen, possibly the finest defensive player in the area. Second baseman Dom Gallegos has provided offensive punch and an omnipresent glove. Trevor Wilson has

pitched the Titans to 12 wins and two losses to complement his .440 batting average. Leadoff hitter and offense catalyst Jake Opelski was named MVP of the Super NIT. Rocket-armed Logan Huntze has been rock-solid behind the plate and on the mound, chalking up 10 wins. Cleanup hitter Jimmy Kabrich sports a .427 batting average and contribute steady play in left field. Conner Capps is one of the Titans’ offensive stars – and hasn’t committed an error in his last three tournaments. Anthony Beckstead’s .390 batting average and superb glovework in the outfield have been key reasons for the Titans’ success. Walker Brinkman’s 11 wins on the mound and three homers pace the power for his team. This group will also be attending the Omaha Champions Village Tournament in June to play against teams all over the country. The NorCal Titans feature teams from 9U to 12U.

Liberty from page 1B inning alive for cleanup hitter Ramirez, who belted a three-run homer. Heritage pitcher Lisa Rodrigues kept the Lion offense at bay all game long. After Bradshaw led off the Liberty first inning with a triple, Rodrigues struck out the next two hitters and forced a groundout to second, ending the scoring threat. Rodrigues surrendered only two hits for the rest of the game: singles to Kelsey Murnin and Kim O’Neill, while allowing only two walks. The Patriots scored five more runs on six hits in the sixth inning, providing the 10-run margin that ended the game after Liberty failed to score in the bottom of the inning. Despite his team’s dominating performance, Heritage manager Ron Rivers wasn’t totally satisfied. “We still have to clean up some little things,” he said. “This league is so tough; all the teams are getting better. On any given day, any team can beat any team in this league. And trying to keep the girls motivated and sharp all the time is tough.” When asked about those areas that need improvement, Rivers said, “Con-

bottom of the eighth – and some might have been wondering what kind of stuff the freshman pitcher is made of. Would she succumb to rookie jitters after having blown the lead with one out to go in the game? Or would she follow in her older sisters’ enormous footsteps by shutting down the opposition? She actually did a little of both by striking out the first batter, giving up a single to the second batter, striking out the third batter and giving up a single to the fourth batter. With two outs and runners on first and second, it came down to a duel between Williams and Kelsey Cast. The count went to 2-2 before Williams struck her out swinging to get the win. Jonas said that the focus in recent practices on developing poise paid off. “I thought we showed a lot of poise today,” he said. “(Antioch pitcher) Paris (Imholz) threw a great game; she’s a great pitcher. Antioch plays tough. They are very well coached. They swing the bat in clutch situations. They don’t quit. They are one of those teams you can’t ever lighten up on because they will come back and beat you. They have a lot of spirit and a lot of heart. “I thought when they tied it in the last inning to get it into extras – I thought that was the time when we had to show that poise. It was either going to break us or we were going to come back in and do what a team with poise does. And that’s get your lead off hitter on and get her over. With that situation with Jackie, she’s so hot I didn’t even think of bunting her. I’d rather steal Malena in that situation and let Jackie hit because she’s doing such a good job of hitting right now. Malena is setting the table. “I was really proud of the kids today. My hat’s off to Antioch because they have a lot of guts and character over there. And it’s going to be a battle every time we or anybody else plays them. Those kids are

tough. (Manager) John (Luis) is doing a great job over there. Jonas was especially pleased with Williams’ effort after having given up four runs to Deer Valley two days prior. “I really think she had been gearing up for it like this was a really big game for her,” he said. “It’s hard to say how freshmen are going to do with that. Are they going to kind of fold up or are they going to go after it? She went after it and grabbed it today. And I’m proud of her. She showed a lot of poise today, a lot of character. She’s not going to run in any marathons in the future, but she’s been working hard on her conditioning. And it showed; in the eighth she was still pretty strong. The hard work pays off.” Luis noted that the little things can make a big difference in the outcome of a game. “It was a hard-fought battle. We just came up short,” he said. “We made a baserunning mistake and a fielding miscue. The other pitcher pitched well and we battled back. But we weren’t able to get the big hit in the last inning there to give us a chance. We weren’t too successful in moving runners up today. But that’s what we’ve done in the past to get the wins. We’ll continue to work on the small ball and moving runners up and key hits. “We’ll be all right. This is just one hitch in the road. We’ll be all right. We have good pitching and some solid defense. Everybody is 4-1. And it will be a good fight for the lead. Freedom’s a good team. Heritage is a good team. Antioch is a good team. So it should be a good triple round-robin. The winner from this is going to be a good team, no matter who wins it out.” Freedom played Liberty on Tuesday and Heritage on Thursday; the Falcons’ next game is at Pittsburg on Tuesday, April 27. Antioch played Deer Valley on Tuesday and Pittsburg on Thursday; the Panthers’ next game is at Liberty on April 27. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Knee awareness for female athletes First you hear a pop, then comes the pain and swelling. One second you’re playing at the top of your game; the next, sitting on the sidelines for the rest of the year. “It’s a traumatic event when you rupture your ACL,” said chiropractor Dr. Michael Pound. “A lot of things start going through your mind, like ‘How could this happen to me right now?’ and ‘Will I be able to play again?’” Soccer is an extremely popular outdoor sport, especially among East County youth. It’s a great way for kids to stay active and healthy, as well as learn valuable life skills such as communication and teamwork. Yet as popularity increases, so do sports-related injuries. And the athletes at the greatest risk for knee injuries are young female athletes. Each year, more than 150,000 Americans suffer anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries. And 80 percent of sportsrelated ACL tears are non-contact injuries. Most often ACL tears occur when an athlete pivots or lands from a jump – and

the knee gives out. The fact that female athletes are 10 times more likely to tear an ACL than their male counterparts is due to factors such as the size and alignment of the pelvis, angulation of the knees, hormones and the way girls fire their muscles when they land. According to Dr. Pound, “There are some factors you have no control over when it comes to sports injuries. However, there are several things you can do as a female athlete to reduce your risk for knee injuries. Playing soccer with an unconditioned knee would be like playing football with no helmet.” Using a scientifically proven female knee injury prevention program is your best defense against a season-ending ACL tear. As part of his community outreach program, Dr. Pound offers group demos on proper ACL warm-up stretches and provides a knee-injury prevention program designed specifically for female athletes. To contact Dr. Pound, e-mail drmikep@hotmail.com.

Health screening for stroke Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and a leading cause of permanent disability. A full 80 percent of stroke victims experience no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke. A preventative ultrasound screening, however, can help you avoid a stroke. Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient. Golden Hills Community Church, 2401 Shady Willow Lane in Brentwood, will host a Life Line Screening on May 17. The screening will identify potential car-

diovascular conditions such as blocked arteries, irregular heartbeats, abdominal aortic aneurysms and hardening of the arteries. A bone-density screening to assess osteoporosis risk will also be available for men and women. The Life Line Screening packages start at $139. The five screenings take between 60 and 90 minutes to complete. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 877-237-1287 or visit www.lifelinescreening.com. Pre-registration is required.

Getting the point about oral piercing by Dr. Dikran Deragopian Body piercing has become a popular form of self-expression, especially for but not limited to young adults. Oral piercing is becoming trendier but is not without risks and complications. The tongue is the most common site of piercing, although the lips, uvula (soft tissue hanging from the back of the palate), cheeks and combinations of these are also pierced. Be sure the procedure is performed by qualified professionals who use disposable gloves, disposable or sterile instruments, and sterilized jewelry. For several days after the piercing, you can expect swelling, pain, increased salivary flow, prolonged bleeding from punctured blood vessels, and sometimes infection. The healing period is usually three to six weeks before the permanent device

(hoops, studs, barbells) can be placed. During the healing stage, avoid spicy foods, alcohol and smoking. Use antiseptic or warm saltwater mouth rinses; reduce talking to a minimum for the first few days and refrain from French kissing and oral sex for at least two weeks to minimize the risk of infection. Complications arising from oral piercing include chipped teeth, allergic reactions, a change in the flavor of food, and difficulty with speech, chewing and swallowing. After healing and to minimize complications, you should remove the jewelry once a day for cleaning and irrigate the hole with water. For those with tongue piercing, the tongue should be brushed every day. Jewelry should be removed before strenuous, contact sports. – Courtesy of DentalSenders

Top Christian artists to play in Brentwood Three-time Grammy-nominated progressive rock act Leeland and acclaimed Dove Award-nominated singer-songwriter Phil Wickham co-headline on Saturday, May 1 at 7 p.m. at the Golden Hills Community Church in Brentwood. The performance is part of a 26-city A Night of Worship Tour featuring special guest, songwriter, artist and worship leader Matt Maher. The tour unites a group of the Christian music industry’s most critically acclaimed artists, songwriters and architects of modern worship music – all of whom continue to influence a generation of new worshippers across the globe. Along with some collaborative moments on some of today’s best-loved worship songs, the tour will also feature music from Leeland’s Grammy-nominated third album, “Love Is On The Move,” Wickham’s chart-topping third album, “Heaven And Earth”

and Maher’s Dove-nominated sophomore project, “Alive Again.” “We’ve known Phil and Matt for quite some time now, and we’ve dreamed of doing a tour with them for even longer,” said Leeland keyboardist Jack Mooring. “It’s going to be a collaborative worship night that ebbs and flows. We know that every night will be powerful, as we seek after God together in each city. I can’t wait.” “I am so excited to be a part of this tour,” Wickham said. “Leeland and Matt are two of my favorite worship leaders and to be able to share the stage with them will be an honor. I hope everyone that comes to the shows will be ready to sing.” The Night of Worship Tour couldn’t come at a better time for this celebrated trio of artists. For Houston-based progressive rock band Leeland, the tour comes on the heels of the group’s third career Grammy nomination for Best Pop/

Contemporary Gospel Album, continuing a streak of Grammy honors for each of the outfit’s three projects to date. Wickham’s latest release, “Heaven and Earth,” has been lauded by critics as one of the top Christian albums of 2009, and gave him his first No. 1 radio single (“Safe”) along with the highest chart placement of his career when it debuted at No. 5 on the Christian music sales chart in December. Maher recently garnered six nominations as a top nominee for the upcoming 41st Annual GMA Dove Awards, and was called “this year’s breakthrough nominee” by the Associated Press.

A Night of Worship with Leeland and Phil Wickham, plus special guest Matt Maher, is presented by Christian relief organization Food for the Hungry.
