City approves local fire board by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer The Brentwood City Council joined the County Board of Supervisors (BOS) and the Oakley City Council in voting Tuesday to provide local control over fire protection in far East County. By a 4-1 vote – Councilman Brandon Richey dissenting – the Brentwood council approved the creation of a locally based governing board for the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (ECCFPD). “This is the necessary next step for us to get the kind of resources needed to protect our population and protect our first-responders,” resident Steven Smith told the council prior to its vote. The new board will consist of nine members chosen proportionally according to the population of the areas within the district. Four will come from Brentwood, three from Oakley and two from

the unincorporated areas of Knightsen, Bethel Island, Byron and Discovery Bay. The ECCFPD is currently run by the BOS in Martinez. The district was created in 2002, consolidating the Bethel Island, East Diablo and Oakley-Knightsen fire protection districts into one district to serve all of far East County. Because it is comprised of what used to be volunteer districts, the district receives only 7 percent of the property tax paid by its residents, while fire districts elsewhere in the county get about 12 percent. As a result of the under-funding, ECCFPD engines have only two firefighters aboard instead of the industry standard three, and neither is a paramedic. Wages are also higher in other areas. In casting his “no” vote, Richey said the BOS was simply handing the problem off. “The Board of Supervisors has been able to pass the see Fire page 18A

Council OKs garage, holds off on trash by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

Taking advantage of savings already realized on the new downtown civic center, the City Council Tuesday voted to proceed immediately with the construction of a parking structure that was scheduled for the project’s second phase. The structure, designed to sit between the new city hall and the new community building, was pulled from the project’s first phase last year during more uncertain economic conditions. But when the first phase of the project came in $16.4 million less than anticipated, the council was presented with a chance to build it in phase one of the project. Director of Finance and Information Systems Pam Ehler said the first-phase sav-

“I am incredibly convinced we can provide exceptional service and save the city a lot of money.

Austin Weaver ings amounted to $11.4 million from the General Fund and $5 million from the Redevelopment Agency. She told the council that it should be possible to build the garage with the General Fund money alone. Resident Steve Barr, after congratulating the council on being able to put the project’s first phase together so affordably, nevertheless encouraged it to hold off on the parking structure. Not enough was known about the future parking needs to determine if it would be better to build the civic center garage now or spend the savings

on a parking structure closer to the center of downtown. Councilman Erick Stonebarger agreed with Barr, saying he didn’t think the civic center location “was the right spot.” Councilman Bob Brockman, however, said the more centrally located structure was more of a commercial project – it has been envisioned to include first-floor retail – that would require time to put together, and time was of the essence on the civic center. Groundbreaking is scheduled for Nov. 10, and the contractor, Lathrop Construction, needs to know how it will proceed.

Mayor Bob Taylor said it would be too disruptive to build the bulk of the civic center now, and then go back in to add the garage later on. The garage had been a part of the overall design from the start, he said, and since it would eventually be needed, it should be built now. The council voted 3-2 to proceed; Councilman Brandon Richey and Stonebarger dissented. The construction will be managed by Lathrop and the various elements of the job will be put out to bid. In other business, the council voted unanimously to take up an offer from the Pittsburg Transfer Station to do a new analysis of the city’s solid waste disposal needs, free of charge to the city. The council was set

Forum on 2-Gates project gets raucous by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

The standing-room-only crowd might have left their torches and pitchforks at home, but there was no denying the passion of the Discovery Bay residents who showed up Tuesday night to protest the controversial 2-Gates Fish Protection Demonstration Project. Michael Jackson of the Bureau of Reclamation chose a different analogy. “I know we are coming into the lion’s den tonight, but that’s OK. We didn’t expect to be greeted necessarily with open arms,” said Jackson, whose agency is one of the collaborators on the project. “But we’re here because we thought it was the right thing to do.” Right or not, it was a tough room to work for reclamation representatives, who grappled with more than 50 speaker cards and spontaneous chants of “No gates, no gates, no gates.” “Why don’t you just tell the truth?” shouted out one audience member. “It’s the water supply, not the smelt, you’re interested in.” The public forum, held in the Discovery Bay Elementary School gymnasium, was the second of three informational meetings hosted by the Department of Reclamation (the other meetings were held in Fresno and Stockton) in an effort to gather input from the public as well as present information on the $80 million proposed operation. The 2-Gates project is a five-year experimental program designed to save the Delta

smelt by rerouting them away from the water pumps on Old and Middle rivers in Bryon. The project is a joint venture by the State Department of Water Resources, the Federal Bureau of Reclamation and the Southern California Metropolitan Water District, and plans to install gates at Old River between Holland Tract and Bacon Island, and at Connection Slough between Mandeville and Bacon Island. The automatic gates would be closed at various times of year for as much as 10 hours per day, depending upon flood tides. Many of the residents who spoke at the forum voiced their concern over how the gates might affect boating in their recreation-based community. “There are good reasons not to do this,” said David Rhoads, Discovery Bay Yacht Club commodore. “Discovery Bay is a waterfront community … We (the Discovery Bay Yacht Club) will not support this.”

Local business owner David Travers said the gates project’s intermittent closures would steer business away from Discovery Bay: “My business relies on boating traffic for a significant amount of my business. This (gates project) will impact an area already hard hit by the housing market. Boating in California is a major industry. Make no mistake, we are not naive; this is not about saving the smelt; it’s about taking away our water. If you want to protect the Delta smelt, stop pumping our water south.” Pete Lucero, public affairs officer for the Bureau of Reclamation, said the public forum was designed to do just what it did: elicit community comment. “Overall, it (the meeting) was as expected,” said Lucero. “We expected people to be passionate and they were. We know that these folks want to be heard and they had some re-

ally great information for us to take back to add to our decision-making process.” There is still time for the public to weigh in. According to Lucero, permit and environmental criteria await approval by a number of agencies before implementation of the gates project can begin. They include, among others, the Army Corps of Engineers, the State Historic Preservation Office, the National Marine Fisheries Service and the Fish and Wildlife Service. If approved, in-water construction is slated for December to August of 2010. The Discovery Bay forum was part of the 30-day environmental review public-comment period, which remains open until Nov. 17 at 5 p.m. Residents should send their comments to Mario Manzo, Bureau of Reclamation, 2800 Cottage Way, MP-730, Sacramento, CA 95825, e-mail mmanzo@usbr.gov or send a fax to 916-978-5094.

After the success of his family’s iris and day lily displays each year, Tony Dittmore is trying his hand at a chrysanthemum garden. The public can get its first peek at the results this weekend.

Mum’s the word Staff Writer

Tony Dittmore’s original goal was to work side-by-side with his father Maylin to create a place where the public could come and look at gorgeous, blooming flowers. And over the years the Dittmores have accomplished that with their popular Brentwood Iris Festival held in the spring, and their acres of day lilies in the summer. But what, thought Dittmore, about autumn? Why not display blooming colors all year round? “That’s when I thought of chrysanthemums,” said Dittmore. “What other flower says ‘fall’ better than mums?” This weekend, locals can answer that question themselves when Dittmore opens

Sixty varieties of mums, with names like Indian Summer, Yellow Sarah and Spicy Cheryl, line the planter boxes on an expanse of the Dittmore’s 10-acre property; each a different size, shape and brilliant color. “They are beautiful, and they’re hard to kill,” said Dittmore. “You can’t over-water them; They’re very resilient.” And they’re also hand-grown. Unlike some producers who plant their seedlings in greenhouses until they’re mature enough to be sold, Dittmore’s mums are nurtured in the open; surrounded by the same soils and elements their owners will most likely grow them see Mums page 12A

Good thing that our Governor has a strong arm, because he’s been furiously signing new bills into law lately. There are two of interest in regards to real estate. The first one deals with the selection of escrow and title services. Effective immediately, the Buyer’s Choice Act allows buyers the ability to choose the escrow and title company of their choice. This is a major departure from how things work now. Nearly every REO listing will have an escrow and title company already assigned to it when it hits the market, and they want you to use their company to make things easier for them. Some of the REO companies will go ahead and pay for the escrow and/or title insurance policies for the buyer because they are demanding the buyer use their company, but not all. If the Buyer doesn’t care, they can waive this new right in writing and go ahead and use the REO company’s escrow/title company. I have seen some cases where the REO company’s escrow/title company charged a lot more than a local company would have, and the fact that most of them are out of the area does create some inconveniences for the buyer. So this is a welcome change in my view, and one that is long overdue. [This only applies to 1-4 unit

properties.] The second new law is in regards to loan modifications. This one is also effective immediately. This law prohibits any loan modifiers from collecting any fees until AFTER the service is fully completed. Now, this doesn’t mean that your entire process has to be completed. They are still allowed to break their services into small pieces. So they can charge you for collecting and processing your initial information, then for submitting to the lender, then for each step of the negotiating process, and collect their fee as each step is completed. But this definitely puts an end to the process whereby they can collect any up-front money from you prior to even starting on your file. The other change is that the loan modifiers must now give you a written statement that paying for their services is unnecessary because there are other free government options to try to get your loan modified.

Citizens campaign to save open space by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Oakley citizens are rallying together in preparation for the General Plan workshop scheduled for next month. The leader in the fight to challenge the city’s current General Plan, the grassroots organization Oakley Citizens for Responsible Growth – formerly known as Oakley Citizens for Responsive Government – met last weekend for its third East Contra forum – this time focusing on promoting sustainable growth. The City of Oakley recently lost a lawsuit in a case brought earlier this year by Greenbelt Alliance, a Bay Area-based environmental activist group, which challenged the environmental impact report for the East Cypress Corridor Specific Plan. A county judge ruled earlier this month that the document didn’t do enough to protect farmland, and the East Cypress project was halted until further notice. Melissa Hippard, campaign director for Greenbelt Alliance, spoke at the forum and encouraged the audience of about 10 to continue the fight to protect not only Oakley’s farmland, but farmland throughout the Bay Area. “The Greenbelt Alliance doesn’t run around suing everyone – in fact, that is our last choice … but Ag land in the Bay Area is dramatically disappearing and it is under a lot

of threat,” Hippard said. “The housing bubble was a big driver of that … and every county in the Bay Area has faced the same kind of dilemma with Ag land.” Hippard said city growth is a lot like hair growth. When you’re hair gets too long, you cut it before it gets out of control. You want your hair to reflect your style so you maintain it to grow at the rate that suits you. The same goes for city growth, Hippard said. The city needs to know when it’s time to cut growth to match the style of community the people want to live in. Growth needs to reflect what people want, and as demonstrated at recent City Council meetings, the citizens don’t want to see more housing – they’re ready for a haircut. Hippard said Greenbelt Alliance would keep a close eye on Oakley to see how the city proceeds following the recent lawsuit ruling and will react accordingly, whether the city appeals the decision or drafts a third EIR for the project. Tom Powers, chairman of Brentwood Agricultural Land Trust, told the assembly that the Oakley City Council appears more interested in promoting housing developments than farming because the developments bring in more revenue. He emphasized the need to protect farmland so that far East see Open Space page 12A

Oakley Elementary joins Pennies For Peace by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Kids love to collect things. Marbles, trading cards, comic books, dolls, rocks, bugs – anything they can get their hands on. But one group of Oakley Elementary students is working to create a collection not for themselves but for children half a world away. Cindy Tumin’s Universal Access group of fourth- and fifth-graders is collecting pennies this semester as part of Pennies For Peace, an international movement to collect money to provide supplies and build schools in Pakistan. Pennies For Peace was created by Greg Mortenson, author of “Three Cups of Tea.” In 1993, Mortenson was on a mountainclimbing expedition when, due to exhaustion, he accidentally strayed from his group and became lost. As he tried to relocate his group, he stumbled onto a village and the locals took him in and helped him recover. During his stay, he noticed that since the villagers couldn’t afford a conventional school, the children practiced writing and arithmetic in the dirt. Mortenson, a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, decided to repay the villagers for their kindness by building a school for the local children and bringing in the funds and materials needed so they could receive a quality education. He chronicled his story in “Tea,” which Tumin read over the summer. “It is such an amazing story, and when I found out there was a condensed children’s version, “Listen to the Wind,” I knew that’s what I wanted to do with the students,” Tumin said. “Kids in America don’t jump out of bed and say, ‘I’m so lucky to go to school today.’ They don’t realize getting an education is a privilege that not all kids have.” After reading the story in class, the students discussed the mission of Pennies For Peace and set their goal for the semester. “We want to raise $600,” Jodie Jacobs said. “That will pay a teacher’s salary for a year in Pakistan. So we’re telling everyone and putting up posters to let people know we’re collecting pennies. Everyone has pennies, but most people don’t think pennies are worth much. They don’t realize pennies will go a long way to help the kids in Pakistan.” So far, the students have collected about $75 worth of pennies, which means they’ll need 52,000 more pennies if they want to reach their goal by Dec. 16. Tumin knows it’s a lofty goal, but the students aren’t discouraged. “We want to get as many pennies as we can,” said Arianna Oranje. “Just one penny will buy a pencil and two pennies buys an eraser. Every little bit helps them. And we’re really lucky to go to school, and they don’t have that, so we should do what we can to help them.” Tumin said she’s pleased that the students have embraced the message of Mortenson’s story and are excited to participate in the program. “It’s a lot of fun knowing that we get to help other people,” said Julia Cole. “Maybe we won’t make our goal, but I think we can. It’s the thought that counts.” Tatiana Zarate agrees. “It feels really good to help people who are less fortunate

than we are, and it means even more because we are helping kids our own age.” The students have placed posters in each classroom on campus, and some of the other classes are also collecting pennies to help the group meet its goal. The kids also wrote letters to their parents asking for donations, and they plan to write letters to the school board and the City Council asking for pennies. Tumin said while the program is for a good cause, one of the greatest things about the program is that everyone can participate. You don’t need to be rich to make a difference see Pennies page 12A

Liberty library gets $5K grant Liberty High library teacher Adriana Perez was recently awarded a $5,000 grant through the California State Library and Local History Digital Resource Project in order to help digitalize Liberty’s yearbooks, some of which date back to the early 1900s. As these awards are usually reserved for museums and historical societies, the grant is quite an honor. Funding will be used for training in digitalization, and soon Liberty’s long history will be available for online viewing through yearbooks and other digitalized treasures. Students have already become involved in the process by helping organize and catalog items. Perez looks forward to collaborating with members of the East Contra Costa Historical Society to provide 200 items to the state historical online data base. These will include two entire yearbooks, pictures, graduation programs, dance cards and other artifacts that reflect life in East County communities more than a hundred years ago. The University of California’s Calisphere Project will digitalize these items and make them available as an educational resource at

The ’60s meets the 21st century in Excelsior’s ‘Alice’ Shelby Thronveit, Ashlee Hughes, Breia Masterman, Ashton McKanny and Briana Colmenares get their groove on in Excelsior Middle School’s production of “Alice in Wonderland.”

by Ryan Harpole Student Correspondent I went to the play “Alice in Wonderland” – a 1960s-style adaptation of the Lewis Carroll classic – put on by the Excelsior Middle School drama program. The performance had wonderful costumes and colorful makeup. The scenery was clever, and the plot, although a little confusing, was well thought out. The lighting was clear, the actors’ voices were easily heard and the audience had many different expressions. It was easy to forget about the outside world and almost believe that you were actually in the ’60s watching this performance. First off, the costumes were creatively made and colorful. The Alice dresses looked like optical illusions, with spirals in black and white that actually matched parts of the set. The makeup was so good that it made

the “boy Alice” look like he was actually a girl! The makeup on the other actors was well planned, helping to bring their characters alive. Humpty, Dumpty, Tweedledee and Tweedledum’s makeup creations used a scheme of opposite colors on opposite sides of the face. I thought this was very ingenious. The set was awesome, too. Bright colors,

such as fluorescent pink, green and orange, really made the set sparkle. I also loved the giant optical illusion gears that spun quite frequently. Another eye-catching part of the set was the black- and green-striped couch for the caterpillar, which resembled mint chip candy. The crazy plot made for an exciting play.

A little girl (cleverly played by four actors) finds herself in an unknown land. She desperately attempts to find the door that fits her key that will lead her back home. Along her journey, she meets a zany bunch of characters that both help and hinder her progress. The audience often reacted with a series of laughter, because the play was hilarious. The actors made many puns that referred to their character and their costumes, and the jokes that were made had me rolling on the floor laughing. Nobody booed or just sat still. The sound was terrific, even though a few times the body mics would go out. The audience loved the music choices that matched the hippie era of the ’60s. Way to go, Excelsior!

A flock of flamingos graces the front lawn of Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor, all part of a fundraiser for the Liberty High School choral program.

Flamed by flamingos The friends of the Liberty High School choral program are hoping you’ll add a little pink to someone’s landscaping this year. 80VOLTS, the program’s nonprofit FUNdraising arm, has given flight to a new way to support the young musicians. Here’s the way it works: If the flock migrates to your house, you have a couple of options: If you’d like to see them disappear, you may pay a small “ransom” donation of $10. If you’d like to help continue the FUNdraising, you may make a donation of $15 to clear your yard and flock a friend of your choosing ($25 for 20 flamingos). If you want to make sure that the flock stays permanently off your lawn, you may pay

an additional $10 for flock insurance. Donations may be made by cash or check; checks should be made out to 80VOLTS. All donations are tax deductible. Your donation may be given to the flamingo volunteers listed below. Someone will remove the flock within 24 hours. Of course, even if you can’t participate in the FUNdraiser, the removal of these flamingos will be done at no charge, so please don’t hurt your pink-feathered friends. For more information or to suggest a friend (in Brentwood) who needs a flamingo flocking, call Marty at 925-6420618 or e-mail martyeqt@gmail.com.

place for people to come and look at beautiful flowers, and now, it’s become a business, which is great.” Dittmore hopes that the public will think it’s great as well, and will be selling potted plants and starts (seedlings to be planted for next season), but no cut flowers this season. The chrysanthemum gardens will premiere Oct. 31 and will be open six days a week until the blooms are gone. “Just in case they (the blooms) last a long time, we are closed on Thanksgiving,” laughed Dittmore. The chrysanthemum gardens are located at 195 Payne Ave. and are open Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 925-595-3838, or visit www.brentwoodirisgarden.com.

Open Space from page 8A County can maintain its agricultural heritage through campaigns such as Buy Fresh, Buy Local. “We see it on a national and even international level – people don’t know where their food is coming from,” Powers said. “What we (BALT) are trying to do is make people aware that food can come from their local area. It’s fresher, has a better carbon footprint, and you can see that it’s safe because you know the farmer and you know how they’re farming.” Environmental activist Steve Bloom, who has more than 30 years of experience challenging authorities to protect the environment, has been helping OCRG draft petitions to shut down Discovery Builders’ housing projects along Knox Lane and Laurel Road and said the docile approach isn’t working.

The citizens’ attempts with “pretty-please” petitions have failed to gain attention at council meetings, and now the citizens have no choice but to take the more hard-hitting approach of formal petitions. If that doesn’t work, there is an endgame strategy. “The other tool that is available is the meat ax of politics – the recall. If you have a city council that has run amuck and is really doing the wrong thing, it’s possible to recall them via petition process. … If worse comes to worse, it’s something that’s available.” Hippard said she hopes the citizens of Oakley can find a way to engage in a civil, open discussion with city officials about the future of the city and make a recall unnecessary. “Growth is going to happen, so if Oakley Citizens For Responsible Growth could act as a neutral environment – a place to bring people together who share a concern for the direction of their community – you can build a leadership in your group to act as a counter voice to the leadership of the City Council.” Paul Seger, co-founder of OCRG, emceed the event and encouraged the audience to mobilize in preparation for the General Plan workshop, scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 6:30 p.m. in the Oakley City Council Chambers. “The council – because of all this action we’ve been shaking the boat a little bit – they’re actually providing a General Plan workshop where they’re going to allow us to come in and speak our minds and apparently, we’re going to be listened to. But I’m not going to hold my breath on that one. “OCRG needs to be ready for that meeting and have a strategy proposed to make it known that we want to move forward. This is not a one-time meeting and they’re not going to brush us off that easily. They need to know that we’re going to be a part of this process all the way through.” At Tuesday’s City Council meeting, Mayor Carol Rios said she is looking forward to the General Plan workshop and is excited to hear ideas from the public. To get involved in OCRG, contact Seger at 925-308-4354 or Eve Diamond at 415-3090611.

Pennies from page 9A in the Pennies For Peace effort. All you need is a penny. “Pennies are so disregarded in our society,” Tumin said. “If you lose a penny in your car, you’ll probably just leave it there. If you drop a $20 in your car, you’d rip the seat out to get it back. Pennies are seen as worthless, but just one penny can make such a difference to a kid in Pakistan, so even if people don’t have a lot to give, especially now with how things are with the economy, they can still make a difference with just one little penny.” Students will spend the week before winter break counting pennies and rolling them up for Tumin to deposit at the bank. The check will be sent to the Pennies For Peace headquarters in Montana, which since 1994 has raised enough money to build 80 schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

City Council recall should be recalled It’s understandable that some Brentwood residents have expressed concern over officials’ decision to build a downtown civic center. Construction of such a large project could change the character of the DITORIAL quaint, historic downtown area, and it’s natural to be suspicious of major governmental spending in the midst of a major recession when the rest of us are forced to cut back. But as we’ve commented in the past, we believe that the many benefits of a new city hall, community center, enlarged library and bigger City Park outweigh the few potential deficits. City Hall has been bulging at the seams ever since Brentwood became one of the fastest growing cities in the state more than a decade ago and evolved into the civic and economic heart of East County. Scores of construction workers will be required to build the new civic center, pumping much-needed money into the chronically ailing downtown area over the next two years. When completed, the civic center will attract people and activities to the area that will further boost the city’s economy. The timing of this project could not be better. The city is saving more than $16 million off of original construction

E

estimates due to low bids from work-hungry construction firms. The project’s financing will be done with historically low bond interest rates, saving another $14.6 million in payments over the 30-year life of the bonds. The money, by the way, is coming from existing revenues; no new taxes are needed. But regardless of whether you favor, oppose or are just indifferent to the civic center project, you should not support the misguided effort to recall the officials who voted for it: Mayor Bob Taylor and councilmen Chris Becnel and Bob Brockman. There are many reasons why the recall effort should be recalled. First and foremost, a recall election could cost Brentwood taxpayers between $100,000 and $150,000 – money would come out of the city budget supported by taxpayers. It makes no sense for those concerned about spending government money on the civic center to now spend more government money on a recall that would not stop the civic center. In addition, the recall, which would be a referendum on the civic center, has in effect already been held. It was the November, 2008 general election in which the civic center proposal was one of the main issues in the campaign. Brentwood residents, when they had the opportunity to decide the fate of the civic center project just under a year

LETTERS Move the rail cars now Editor: We would like our residents to know that the Brentwood City Council has sent the following letter to Mr. Scott D. Moore, Vice President Public Affairs for the Union Pacific Railroad: Dear Mr. Moore, Over the course of the past year, Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) has been provided correspondence expressing concerns of East Contra Costa County elected officials and communities regarding the UPRR’s Mococo Line.

ago, overwhelmingly voted to make sure it would happen. In the mayoral contest, Bob Taylor, who supported the civic center, received 71 percent of the votes – nearly 8,000 more than challenger Teresa Wooten, who expressed several concerns about the project. In the council race, Brockman, who supported the civic center, received 10,000 votes. It’s true that Erick Stonebarger, who opposed the project, came in first with nearly 11,500 votes. But if you combine Brockman’s votes with the 4,500 votes of third-place finisher Roger Short, who also strongly supported the civic center, the procenter side received 3,000 more votes – a 12percent margin – than the anti-center side. The term of office of Chris Becnel, the other councilman who voted to make the civic center a reality, expires in a year. Does it make sense to spend taxpayer dollars on a recall election next June when Becnel’s term expires just five months later in November? If voters want to punish him for his civic center vote, that’s the time to do it, assuming he chooses to run. Recalling a government official is a serious undertaking and should not be based on one vote in a policy disagreement in which there have been numerous opportunities for public input and, as we’ve pointed out, a public election before the final vote

TO THE

the responses we have received to date lack information and explanation and leave this Council without action or answers for our concerned residents. Currently the rail cars are covered in unsightly offensive graffiti and continue to be stored adjacent to residential neighborhoods creating a visual blight. This violates the City’s nuisance abatement regulations and has been recognized in previous correspondence by UPRR as a serious problem. Recently UPRR Public Affairs has indicated UPRR’s inability to relocate the rail cars without providing any rationale and also failed to acknowledge the continued requests for graffiti abatement plans. Logical and or technical reasons for the “relocation inability” have not been forthcoming and efforts at compromise have been fruitless. At this time we must insist the cars be relocated outside of suburban communities to the rural areas where it appears that sufficient storage capacity exists along UPRR’s Mococo Line. UPRR has expressed numerous times that it strongly desires to be considered a partner and good neighbor in East Contra Costa County. Given this desire, we will expect UPRR to mobilize their resources appropriately and abate the graffiti problem and relocate the rail cars as mentioned above. I want to thank you in advance for your immediate attention to this letter and the City looks forward to receiving your

was taken. Recalls should be reserved for malfeasance in office, ethical violations, criminal wrongdoing, abuses of power, trampling on the rights of citizens, graft, corruption and the like. No matter how you feel about the civic center, the performance of this council (building on the work of previous councils and city staff) has put the city in good stead: The budget is balanced and boasts a 30percent reserve; the crime rate is down and the police department is fully staffed; the Metropolitan Transportation Commission this year declared the city’s roads the best in the Bay Area; the city has again been named a bicycle-friendly community as well as one of the top 100 places to raise children in the country; and the city’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report has won awards for its thoroughness for several years running. As Winston Churchill pointed out, “Democracy is the worst form of government except for all those others that have been tried.” Only time will tell whether the civic center will be the promised blessing, the feared boondoggle or something in between. In the meantime, residents angry over the civic center decision should channel their energy into speaking out at council meetings on upcoming issues and promoting their own candidates in the November, 2010 council election.

Visualization needed Editor: Regarding the proposed Rosewood development at Laurel Road and Rose Avenue: First, I want to say that I am completely against any high-density development in Oakley. I would also like to ask the council to ask yourselves, do you know what over five homes per acre would look like? Do you know what another high-density development would do to our community? The reason I ask these questions goes back to last fall’s election for City Council. If you remember, those running for council participated in a Town Hall type forum with Lisa Vorderbrueggen from the Contra Costa Times. When she asked a question about the low-income and senior-housing buildings on Carol Lane that have come to be known as “The Towers,” two of you sitting on the council stated that you didn’t realize what four stories looked like. You were on the council and voted to

approve this project and you didn’t know what it would look like? I can’t accept that this City Council would approve a project not knowing what it will look like. That is why I ask: before you make your decision regarding the Rosewood development, I hope you think about it. I am not against Rosewood. I am against the high density. Please lower the number of homes per acre. Frank Spinelli Oakley

DBPOA not a bargain at any price Editor: This is in response to last week’s letter from Mr. and Mrs. Rogers regarding the DBPOA being a bargain. The Rogerses seem to believe the DBPOA is responsible for our “upscale” community, which doesn’t square with the facts. First of all, the largest area in Discovery Bay (the so-called West Quadrant) does not have CC&Rs and has the best looking properties in DB. Some of the items mentioned by the Rogerses, such as the DBPOA being responsible for not having residences obstruct another’s view of the water, are nowhere written in the CC&Rs. Other nuisances mentioned, such as noise and lights keeping neighbors awake, are unenforceable by the DBPOA. Your see Letters page 17A

Halloween comes early to Brentwood by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Hundreds of costume-clad children practiced their trick-or-treating skills in downtown Brentwood last week as part of the annual Hometown Halloween festivities. Dozens of local-business booths lined the streets as kids of all ages snatched free candy at every corner. It took the sweets seekers and their patient parents more than an hour to work their way through the assembly line of princesses and pirates, witches and warlocks, but the atmosphere remained cheerful overall. Supergirl Andie Sayson, 5, and her brother Aiden, 3, sporting an Ironman costume, took a break at the fountain before tackling the second leg of their adventure. “This is so much fun,” Andie said, even though the detour to the Haunted Basement at the Catwalk was a little more than she bargained for. “The haunted house was a little too scary for her,” said Lorraine, mother of the energetic superheroes. “They love dressing up, though, and getting the candy. We come every year, and the kids always have such a great time.” Maureen Baker also brought out her little ghosts and goblins: “This is a great event. It’s so nice that the city hosts this

safe evening for the kids, and the kids just love it. We look forward to it every year.” Baker, who dressed as pop star Lady Gaga, said she didn’t mind the lines, and as a seasoned Hometown Halloween aficionado, she didn’t think it was as busy as in the past. Brentwood Chamber of Commerce Event Coordinator Jilda Fairhurst said

this year’s event was actually the largest in Hometown Halloween history, featuring 85 participating businesses, two haunted houses and a haunted bus: “We had a great turnout. I’m really happy with how everything went. The businesses came out and decorated their booths and really brought the Halloween spirit to downtown Brentwood.

“We estimate that at least 5,000 families came out to take part in the event, and that’s what it’s all about,” she added. “It’s a fun experience for families to enjoy downtown, and it’s great exposure for our local businesses.” For more photos and video of this year’s Hometown Halloween, visit www. thepress.net and click on Multimedia.

Letters from page 13A local county officials can deal with these problems immediately, as well as old cars and other unsightly junk exposed to view. Regarding the liens on homes, look at the facts. The CC&Rs do not allow for fines and the DBPOA Board created fines because the CC&Rs were never meant to be enforced in this manner. A little research about the DBPOA will reveal a very questionable inception of flawed documents and shady unauthorized changes without membership approval. This is one of the reasons there is frequent negative opinion about the DBPOA and its conduct. When the DBPOA does take action and goes to court, and if it wins, it places a lien on the owner’s property; however, the problem remains! How is this solving any problems and improving the looks of the community? The CC&Rs allow the DBPOA to seek “injunctive relief,” which means to have the court order the person to correct the alleged violation. The DBPOA does not do this and only seeks to punish by demanding money. Even after a resident corrects a violation, the DBPOA still wants the fine money. This tactic has become a source of revenue more than a tool to improve the community. With all the foreclosures in the area, why doesn’t the DBPOA take action against the bank-owned homes with deteriorated landscaping? Instead, they use membership money and sue people for frivolous violations such as the recent court case they lost, which will cost over $40,000,

involving a resident who spent money improving his property – but a disagreement arose over a curb cut, which is not even in the DBPOA’s jurisdiction. This is a good example of how the DBPOA uses poor judgment with membership money and why I recommend a “No” vote on the proposed dues increase. Mr. and Mrs. Rogers, we all want our property values to stay as high as possible; however, to actually believe the neighborhood would deteriorate without the DBPOA is shortsighted reasoning. Don’t worry; life without the DBPOA will not destroy our community. You will get better results using your already spent county tax dollars with your county officials if you want any possibility in solving the problems you quoted. The DBPOA is not a bargain at any price – just defective merchandise. Bruce McKay Discovery Bay

Robert’s Investment Update By Robert Burpee

Operating in Chaos We have reached a critical juncture in the various markets in the United States and across the world. Stocks, bonds, precious metals and commodities have had major down and up swings in price over the last year. Even residential and some commercial real estate is starting to find a bottom in various regions of the United States and in other parts of the globe. The question is how to properly allocate a portfolio from here. Essentially, I believe you have to create an equity portfolio that is made up of quality assets where you can derive a yield in the 8% to 10% range and have some upside opportunity. You can essentially do this by purchasing dividend yielding stocks or stock indexes and writing covered calls on them. Also depending on each individual investor’s risk tolerance the stock or stock index portfolio can be hedged against some of the downside risk too. In the area of bonds I would look into some investment grade corporate and quality municipal bonds that mature in five years or less. With the corporate bonds you can get 4% to 5% in taxable interest and with the municipal bonds you can get 2.5% to 3% in tax free interest. With real estate investments I would look for quality real estate in

apartments and big box needs retailers paying in the 7% to 8% range. I would add a small commodity related position as a hedge against inflation. With the above in mind you can create an overall portfolio that has a cash flow yield in the 5% to 7% range and has the potential for upside and possibly a double digit overall total return. Strategic asset allocation and tactical execution is what is needed in times like these, especially for those who are about to head into retirement or those who are already in retirement.

There the council voted unanimously in favor of the new board. The issue will return to the BOS for a final vote now that the cities have signed on. That vote should come on Nov. 10, followed by a transition period during which the new board will be seated. The two city councils will name the representatives from their communities, while the BOS will choose the representatives from the unincorporated areas. The new group is expected to take over on Feb. 10, 2010.

The city would also be able to better address future increases in recycling mandates, he said. The council tabled its consideration of the new Brentwood facility to give the Pittsburg firm a time to put together a study. The study will also include any costs that might come from getting out of a current hauling contract with another company.

The five candidates seeking to represent the 10th Congressional District break down into a group of three on the left and two on the right as revealed in a forum at Saint Mary’s College Monday night. Ranging from political left to right are: self-described socialist Mary McIlroy of the Peace and Freedom Party, Jeremy Cloward of the Green Party, liberal Democrat John Garamendi, conservative Republican David Harmer and libertarian Jerry Denham, representing the American Independent Party. State Lt. Gov. Garamendi is the presumed front-runner in Tuesday’s election to replace Ellen Tauscher, who resigned in June to take a job in the U.S. State Department. The career politician has the best name recognition due to his three decades in state politics and is running in a district in which Democrats outnumber Republicans 47 to 29 percent. Although both McIlroy and Cloward said they are running because neither the Democrats nor the Republicans have addressed the problems facing the country, both were in agreement with Garamendi on just about every issue discussed during the 1½-hour forum. Garamendi joined with McIlroy and Cloward in supporting the proposed government-run health care plan now making its way through Congress. “The public option is necessary,” said Garamendi. “We need not be frightened about it. Every senior is involved in a public option that works well – it’s called Medicare.” Harmer opposes government-run health care, saying it would replace insurance companies’ privately run bureaucracies “with one mammoth government bureaucracy.” He supports increasing competition by allowing insurance to be purchased across state lines, favors reducing lawsuits for medical malpractice and wants to remove the tax penalty for those purchasing insurance outside of a company plan. Denham argued that the federal government has no power under the U.S. Constitution to be involved with health care and a variety of other issues. Garamendi also agreed with the Green and Peace and Freedom Party candidates that the U.S. should end the war in Afghanistan. “It’s time for us to wind down the military operation and ramp up the economic and educational programs in Afghanistan,” he said. “We will not win this war militarily. We will have to win it with economic and social development.” Harmer disagreed, saying that when President Obama was a candidate “he declared that Afghanistan was the central front in the war on terror and urged

that we increase the resources. Now he seems to be equivocating. I would respectfully challenge the president to live up to his rhetoric. Define the mission clearly: what it is we need to accomplish, what vital American interests are at stake. Then provide the resources necessary to accomplish that mission and not allow political considerations to intervene.” On the subject of Social Security, Garamendi again joined with McIlroy and Cloward in opposing a privatization option that would allow Americans to invest their contributions on their own, pointing out the risk in putting money in the stock market. Harmer supports an investment option, saying that there is no money in the Social Security Trust Fund and that privatizing contributions would allow people to pass their retirement savings onto their heirs. Denham agreed with the privatization option, but said it should be done on the state level, not the federal. All of the candidates agreed on the need to reduce the federal deficit, which is currently at $1.4 trillion annually, as well as the national debt, which is approaching $12 trillion and is projected to increase to more than $21 trillion in the next decade. But they disagreed on how to go about it. McIlroy and Cloward favor slashing the defense budget. Garamendi blamed President George W. Bush for the deficit by cutting taxes for the wealthy and starting a war “based on borrowing,” and said he had helped President Bill Clinton cut 15,000 positions in the Department of the Interior. Harmer blamed Obama and the Democrats in Congress for tripling Bush’s deficit and opposes spending stimulus and bailout money. Denham supports cutting every federal government agency by 25 percent and reducing total spending by 90 percent. Garamendi again agreed with McIlroy and Cloward on the issue of global warming, warning that the planet is headed for disaster unless carbon dioxide emissions are reduced. Harmer and Denham are skeptical. Harmer pointed out that carbon dioxide is exhaled by people and essential to life, not a toxic pollutant. Denham called global warming “a big lie.” There were two issues of agreement among the candidates. They all favor auditing the federal reserve system and they oppose constructing a peripheral canal in the Delta. The one moment of levity in the serious discussion occurred when Denham responded to the question of what was the most difficult decision of his life. “To get married,” he said without elaboration as the several hundred people in attendance laughed. The moderator joked that she hoped his wife isn’t in the audience.

Not right, not fair, not affordable Editor: President Obama has repeatedly promised that Americans (1) wouldn’t see a tax increase if they make less than $250,000 and (2) if they like their health insurance, they can keep it. It seems now that the president has no intention of keeping those promises. The health care legislation that he supports would impose a significant tax hike on individuals making more than $85,000. Additionally, for senior citizens Medicare will face more than $400 billion in lost benefits. It seems that taxpayers and seniors now face new promises from Mr. Obama: higher taxes on the middle class and increased cost, reduced access, watered-down

quality and rationed care for patients. Finally, more than 182 members of Congress support a three-day waiting period on health care legislation so that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) can estimate its cost and so that Congress and the American public can read the final legislation. With health care legislation frequently longer than Tolstoy’s “War and Peace,” a three-day waiting period so that legislators can read it seems like a good idea – particularly so when taxpayers will be asked to pay $800 billion or more. Amazingly, several congressional leaders think otherwise. This is irresponsible governing – and it certainly fails President Obama’s campaign promise of legislative transparency. Government-run health care isn’t right and it isn’t fair. As taxpayers and patients, we simply can’t afford government-run health care. Johnny Merrill Brentwood

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Tax Credit Questions By popular demand this article is being ran for a second time… With November 30, 2009 creeping up – no pun intended for Halloween right around the corner – the window of opportunity to take advantage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and its $8,000 first time buyer credit, is quickly coming to a close. As most potential first time buyers (even those who have recently become first time buyers) will tell you, our current real estate market is already frustrating without having to worry about the ins and outs of said $8,000 credit. To allow any would be buyers to concentrate on what matters most – actually finding a home – I’ve compiled a list of the questions I’m most frequently asked that revolve around the tax credit with a Cinderella date of December 1, 2009: What type of homes qualify for the credit – Any home that will be used as a primary/ principal residence qualifies for the credit. This includes single-family detached homes, attached homes (i.e. townhomes and condominiums), manufactured homes (also known as mobile homes), modular homes and houseboats. If it qualifies for the capital gains tax on a primary residence, it qualifies for this credit. How do I claim the tax credit – You claim the tax credit on your federal income tax return. Specifically, home buyers should complete IRS form 5405 to determine their tax credit amount, and then claim this amount on Line 69 of their 1040 income tax return. No other applications or forms are required, and no pre-approval is necessary.

How much of the credit will I receive – The full tax credit is given to first time buyers with a modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) of less than $75,000 for single tax payers and $150,000 for married taxpayers filing a joint return. For taxpayers with MAGI of more than $95,000 (single) or $170,000 (married) the credit is reduced to zero. Taxpayers between these figures are prorated accordingly. Is a tax credit the same as a tax deduction – No, a tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in what the taxpayer owes. That means that a taxpayer who owes $8,000 in income taxes, and who receives an $8,000 tax credit, would owe nothing to the IRS. A tax dedauction is subtracted from the amount of income that is taxed. Assuming the same $8,000 tax liability from above, a taxpayer that is in the 33 percent tax bracket would have their liability reduced from $8,000 to $5,360. ($8,000 multiplied by 33%). The most important thing to remember about this tax credit is that you should be congratulating yourself. If you intend to this claim credit it means that somewhere within the last eight months (April through November) you became a home owner… a huge accomplishment! Should you ever have any other questions regarding the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, or anything else related to real estate financing, please write or call. I’m always here to help and I’m only a phone call away. 925-726-1444, tfreymortgages@ yahoo.com. – Advertisement

Deer Valley beats Pittsburg in thriller by Michael Dixon Correspondent In a high-scoring game highlighted by several shifts of momentum, Deer Valley kept its perfect season going with a 35-33 win against defending BVAL champion Pittsburg. Wolverine quarterback Kristoff Williams sprinted for a 55-yard touchdown run on a keeper with 1:18 left in the game. Julio Villegas kicked his fifth of five successful PAT attempts for a 35-27 lead. With just one timeout remaining, Pittsburg appeared to have little chance – until Pittsburg return man Tracy Clark returned the kickoff to the Deer Valley 4-yard line. On fourth and goal, quarterback Julius Mozee scored on a quarterback draw that cut the Deer Valley lead to 35-33 with 38 seconds remaining. The Wolverines’ Brandon Williams stopped Clark on the two-point conversion. When the Pittsburg onside kick failed to travel 10 yards, Deer Valley gained possession and ran the clock out to preserve the win. The two-point conversion tackle wasn’t Brandon Williams’ only contribution to the Wolverines cause. After the Pirates jumped to a 13-0 first-quarter lead on a pair of two-yard touchdown runs from Breon Butler, Deer Valley got on the board with an 18-yard touchdown run from Sean Combs that was sprung by a tremendous block thrown by Williams. Brandon Williams came through again on third and 15 from the Deer Valley 31 on a

That gave the Wolverines a 14-13 lead with just over four minutes to go in the half. Pittsburg wouldn’t quit, though, scoring twice before the end of the half. Mozee completed a 71-yard pass to Clark and then hit Polk for an eight-yard touchdown, followed

by a two-point conversion from Mozee to John Hart. On the Pirates’ next possession, Robert Jiles took a screen pass from Mozee and scored on a 48-yard play. The missed extra point kick gave Pittsburg a 13-point lead at the half. The Wolverines made the necessary adjustments at halftime. Backup quarterback Mike Behr connected with Tim Jefferies on

a 74-yard pass. Two plays later, Brandon Williams scored on a five-yard touchdown that cut the Wolverine deficit to 27-21. After a missed Pittsburg field goal gave the Wolverines the ball on their own 20, Behr connected with Kristoff Williams and Williams ran the rest of the way for the score to regain the lead 28-27. Deer Valley Coach Rich Woods was jubilant after the game. “I could give every one of them a big kiss,” he said. “You’ve got to have a lot of trust to put a second-string quarterback in and score 21 points. (Behr) threw the ball, he ran the offense, and he really did a great job. Then Kris went in and ran the option, he really had a great play. He is just an awesome athlete.” Kristoff Williams said, “I’m really proud of the team; we’ve been working hard. This is our first win against Pitt in four years.” On playing receiver, he added, “I’m just trying to do what’s best for the team right now. I played there last year, and they had problems with the pass defense.” Woods also said, “That was a team effort all the way. You’ve got to give Pittsburg a ton of credit. They put a great game plan together and kind of ran the ball around us. They gave us some big plays, we gave them some big plays and that ended up being the difference. When it came down to crunch time, they made the plays.” Deer Valley (7-0, 2-0) hosts Liberty (3-31, 0-2) Friday night while Pittsburg (3-4, 1-1) will travel to Freedom (0-7, 0-2).

Lions de-fang Cobras The East County Lions’ Scouts squad came out on top in a recent hard-fought scrimmage against the Concord Cobras. QB Cooper Gardner scored the game’s only touchdown. The Lions moved the ball consistently behind the blocking of Conner Gasperson, Raymond Alvarez, Bryant Garcia, Kevin Moore and Zachary Hardman. Quarterbacks Jay Butterfield and Gardner completed key passes to Sean Bradley and Logan Shirk. Running backs Jack Murphy, Gaudie Campbell, Victor Montez, Jacobi Padilla and Edgerrin Flores led the Lion running attack. Lion defenders Justin Bergen, Eric Bergen, Cole Gregerson, Dalton Houston, Giovanni Larrea, Dante Lucido and Nicholas Laughlin made big hits. Laughlin recovered three fumbles. The East County Pee Wee team im-

proved to 6-1 behind the rushing attack of Dominic Espino, Michael Goodwin, Jesse Gregerson and Ryan Payne. Joe Sweeney added a touchdown pass to Payne as the Lions beat Concord 38-6. Dominic Dominguez, Isaiah Clement and Diovae Hamilton made key blocks. The Lion defense was led by Kyle Coonan, Jacob Knight, Dewey Martin and Brandon Tatum. The 6-1 Jr. Midgets’ star running back John Velasco chalked up 130 yards and two TDs. Savonte Perry also scored twice; Martell Banks notched one TD and kicker Giovanni Graham nailed the extra point. The staunch Jr. Midget D held Concord to a mere three first downs. Alex Espino added a sack to bring his total to six for the season.

Liberty’s Costa to play for UCLA by Dave Roberts Staff Writer “I think this year we are going to definitely be a force to reckon with,” said Liberty volleyball star Corinne Costa after last week’s easy 3-0 victory over Freedom. Costa was actually referring to the Lions’ upcoming basketball season. The 6-foot-4-inch senior could have been speaking of herself as well. Basketball season won’t start for another month, but UCLA has been impressed enough by Costa’s skills at center in her first three high school years to offer her a scholarship to play basketball, which she recently accepted. “I was really excited about it when I first got offered,” she said. What makes the offer from a top school more impressive is that the Lions had a subpar season last year, ending up 6-9 in league and 9-17 overall, according to maxpreps.com. “Last year we had kind of a shaky year,” said Costa. “But I think this year we are going to definitely be a force to reckon with. We will be top notch. We have a bunch of good girls.” In the meantime, Costa is focusing on volleyball, a sport in which she could be dubbed “Killer” Costa due to formidable skill at hammering balls over the net for easy points. “She makes a big difference,” said Liberty Coach Linda Ghilarducci. “She averages double figures every time in kills.” Costa had 19 kills against Freedom on Oct. 22. Two

days before, against a much tougher Heritage team, Costa notched 20 kills. Asked what she likes about volleyball, she said, “I like the intensity, the back and forth, just being scrappy about it. And getting kills.” When she’s not killing the ball, Costa’s blocking it. It’s a definite advantage when you’re tall enough to reach your arms a foot or more above the net without having to leave the ground, sending opponents’ spikes back in their faces or, better yet, to empty spots on the floor for points. Costa made seven blocks leading to points against Heritage and six against Freedom. Ghilarducci was happy with her team’s strong performance against Freedom, especially coming off a loss to Heritage, whom they had beaten in their first encounter. “We were consistent,” she said. “I got everybody in and they did their job. I was really proud of them. I think we played well.” The win boosted Liberty’s record to 8-3 in league and 15-10 overall. Ghilarducci is also pleased with the way things have been going so far this season, crediting the team’s offense and serving as its two strengths. “I think they’ve worked hard to be where they are,” she said. “The competition in the league, it’s really been between the top three teams (Liberty, Heritage and Deer Valley), it’s been really good. So it’s been a good season.” Liberty hosted the Second Annual Dig for the Cure Tuesday in a game against Deer Valley, the results of which

were not available at press time. The Wolverines hosted the breast cancer fundraiser last year in which the two teams raised $5,000 for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure organization from pledges for each dig (preventing an opponent’s spike from hitting the floor) during the match.

Golf from page 1B “The conditions were not as good as we hoped,” said Edward. “We had a lot of water and had to lay up in certain spots. All of the scores were elevated. But they did a nice job with all of the different conditions. Wilkerson did a nice job with a fourth-place finish – that was a good finale tournament for her. We are going on to North Coast (Section tournament), and hopefully the weather will be a little bit better and we can cut some more strokes off of everybody’s game.” What makes the 45-stroke victory even more impressive is that four of the Deer Valley players were playing the Creekside and Hillside courses for only the second time, and two of them for the first time. With its 48-league-match winning streak, the Wolverines have become the De La Salle of East County golf. Edwards cites a variety of factors for the remarkable success, starting with an emphasis on chipping and putting. “The girls are really dedicated working on their short game,” said Edwards. “Even the five other players who weren’t in the tournament work hard at practice and know that to cut strokes you have to work on your short game and do a lot of chipping and put-

ting. We play one hole at a time. Whatever happens on the past hole we try to put behind us and try to get the best score on that hole.” Golf, perhaps more than most sports, is a CONDER mental game, given its slow pace and individual nature. “We focus a lot on thinking positively,” said Edwards. “Just focusing on where they are at that particular time and the emphasis on the positive and not the negative. When they come in from a round, I will ask them what happened positively. “It’s just like life – to be a better person you have to work hard at it and forget your errors and focus on the positive and work on what we need work on.

The emphasis there will be on sticking to the straight and narrow. “Arcata is a really tough course, a very

narrow course with trees on the side,” said Edward. “The girls will have to keep it down the middle and the fairways to get themselves a good shot at some good scores.

Holiday dietary caution Happy Autumn Brentwood! With the change in weather comes the holiday season and plenty of baked goods and treats to enjoy. Our pets however can not always handle food and candy safely. Here are some common foods we come across during the holiday season and signs to watch for in case your pet has eaten them. Chocolate – many people know this is dangerous for dogs, however come Halloween it is difficult to avoid an accidental ingestion. The most dangerous are the baking and semi-sweet varieties. Chocolate has 2 chemicals that are toxic to dogs. Caffeine and Theobromine. These cause an increased heart rate, shaking or tremors and in severe cases seizures. Sugar-Free Gum/Candy – This treat has a chemical known as Xylitol. When dogs ingest this, even at relatively low doses it can cause a dramatic drop in blood sugar. Lethargy, difficulty walking, decreased coordination and seizures can be seen with ingestion. Other common foods that are toxic to dogs and cats include: Onions (and members of onion family including garlic, leek etc) – these contain compounds that can destroy red blood cells and cause the patient to become anemic. Macadamia Nuts – even at low doses can cause weakness, depression, vomiting, etc. typically within

the first 12 hours of ingestion. Grapes and Raisins – these foods contain compounds known to be toxic to kidneys and can result in kidney failure in our pets. Rising Bread Dough – this has the potential to be dangerous in two different ways. First, as yeast consumes sugar it produces ethanol which builds up in the dogs system and can result in toxicity showing symptoms of vomiting, incoordination, bloating, pain etc. Secondly, as the bread dough expands in the stomach it can actually become an obstruction and in severe cases needs surgical removal. If your pet has been known to eat these foods please contact us immediately. The best first step (and mind you this should be done within the first 45 minutes of ingestion) is to induce vomiting in dogs that are asymptomatic. This can be attempted at home with Hydrogen Peroxide or by a simple injection administered by your veterinarian. If however, your pet is already displaying symptoms of intoxication they should be seen by a veterinarian right away. If you have questions about specific foods please feel free to contact us. In addition, you can always speak with APSCA Animal Poison Control.

If you have questions about your own pet, email us at askthevet@brentwoodvet.net

Soccer gets professional The Delta Youth Soccer League (DYSL) of Antioch has adopted the practices of Major League Soccer. Some of the coaches of the DYSL attended a clinic put on by some of the MLS coaches, trainers and scouts. The knowledge gained from the camps has been instituted into the practice regime for the young ladies in the league. “Our aim for the program was to provide professional coaching for DYSL home league players in an attempt to help the volunteer coaches with coaching styles and drills,” said NASC-MLS Camps and North West Regional Trainer Andy Clawson. “For the young players, we felt it was essential to help them with soccer essentials such as 1v1 skills at this early age to give them the basics to develop into ‘competitive’ players.” The practices have paid off for the U10 girls team Godzilla Girlz, which won only three games last season and have already won twice as many this season. “We are focused on bringing the most

entertaining and meaningful experience to the girls,” Godzilla Girlz Head Coach Brian Horace said. “Having that MLS influence has greatly improved the skills of my players and held their attention throughout the season.” The DYSL U10 girls division wraps up its regular season on Oct. 31 in two Antioch locations: Almondridge Park from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Black Diamond Middle School from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Delta Youth Soccer League (DYSL) is a volunteer nonprofit organization that provides recreational and competitive soccer programs for boys and girls ages 4 to 19 years in the Antioch, Pittsburg, Bay Point and adjacent unincorporated areas. The purpose of the DYSL is to develop, promote and administer the game of soccer among youth without regard to race, religion, color, creed, sex or national origin.

Patriots from page 1B junior Treyvon Hanna helped Heritage amass more than 280 yards rushing, and a nearly two-to-one time of possession differential. Liberty junior quarterback Devyn Parsons was injured on the last play of the first half, and did not return. Sophomore Caleb Moravec took over, but found no more success than Parsons. Moravec and junior running backs Shawn Vasquez and John Francisco played valiantly in defeat. Vasquez in particular was all over the field on both sides of the ball, logging more than a dozen tackles on defense, and churning out hard-earned yardage on offense. But the Patriots were just too much to handle. The icing on the cake came in

the third quarter when junior quarterback Brent Eikanas lofted a perfect pass to Hanna, who made a terrific catch in the back left corner of the end zone for a 26-yard TD that gave the Patriots their final score. “That’s the way to win against this (Liberty) team: pound the rock,” said Patriots Head Coach Jeff Haagenson. Miming a weight-lifting exercise, he added, “We won this game in January.” The victory gives Heritage a 1-1 league record, and drops the Lions to 02 in BVAL play. The Patriots will host the Antioch Panthers, who are tied with Deer Valley for the league lead at 2-0, in tonight’s Homecoming game at 7 p.m. The Lions travel to Deer Valley tonight, Oct. 30.

Diablo Prosthetics comes to Antioch Staff Writer

The staff at Diablo Prosthetics and Orthotics, Inc. is in the miracle business, but chances are you don’t want to meet them unless you really need to. Richard Sire, a certified prosthetist and orthotist, works with patients who have lost limbs or whose motion is limited by chronic pain or disability. He designs braces and artificial limbs to help patients regain movement

and gain a sense of normalcy. Sire, along with partners Kathleen Pelz and Kyle Sullivan, recently opened a satellite office next to Sutter Delta Medical Center in Antioch and hopes to open a permanent facility where he and his team can manufacture prosthetics and braces on site like they do at their Walnut Creek and Pleasanton operations. “We’ve had so many patients referred to us from this area, so it made sense to open an office here,” Sire said. “Instead of having them

drive all the way to see us, we decided it was time to meet our patients here.” Pelz said they hope to establish a permanent Antioch office by next year. “People don’t think about the field of prosthetics or orthotics until they’re faced with it. But when your motion becomes limited or impaired, you want to have someone nearby who can help you. We work with patients to help them regain function and mobility and we’re on call 24/7, so whenever our patients need us, we’re there.” While no license is required to practice prosthetics and orthotics in California, Sire is nationally certified and one of few practitioners in the country trained to work with the i-LIMB Hand, a prosthetic arm device by Touch Bionics – the first of its kind – equipped with five individually powered fingers. The device gives its user increased grip and the ability to point. “The i-LIMB offers unlimited grip patterns and uses state of the art technology to restore mobility,” Sire said. “It’s revolutionary. People who use this device are able to pick up things more easily, and with the point feature, they’re even able to type. It’s practically as good as a real hand.”

Experience at

Sire said he enjoys the challenge of finding the best solution to help his patients live the lives they want to live. “We meet so many people who have been through so much, and once you hear their stories and what they’ve had to overcome, your own problems seem insignificant. With recent advances in technology, we’re able to custom design prosthetic and orthotic devices to help people live their lives to the fullest.” “Our patients help put things in perspective,” Pelz added. “When you fit a patient with a prosthetic device that allows them to lift an egg for the first time after years of not being able to because the fingers of the old prosthetic were too stiff – to see the look on their face and to see their excitement, to see that look of relief – that’s why we do what we do. We want to make life easier for these people. “It may not seem earth-shattering to most people because we take the little things for granted, but when a patient regains mobility and isn’t in pain, that means the world to that person.” For more information about Diablo Prosthetics and Orthotics, Inc., call 925930-7700.

Celebrating autism In her new book, “Effervescence,” author Simone Brenneman’s explores the similarities between autistic children and normal children by unveiling the inner, artistic and complex mind of an autistic child. Through Brenneman’s eyes, the reader comes to a better understanding of the autistic mind and body and how they experience and respond to the world. “Effervescence” is a series of talks told by the mother of an autistic daughter. Her narrative recounts 18 years of watching and responding to the magnificently complex and challenging world in which an autistic child lives. This is not a book with charts and remedies for the cure of autism, but a heartfelt expression inspired to help us understand and live harmoniously with these unique, loving and inspirational individuals. “I can honestly say there has not been a single day in the past 18 years that was an easy day, and certainly not a typical day, by most family’s standards,” said Brenneman. “But every single day my eyes have been

opened to things I would never have otherwise known or understood. ‘Effervescence’ is not only a tale about autism; it’s a tale about courage and about evolving.” “Effervescence” shows why the fascinating and insightful world of autism should be embraced and explored; unveils the complex layers of the autistic mind and body; and watches and listens, taking autistic behaviors into consideration without attempting to modify them in order to find a cure. “All children are life’s greatest blessing, but some children touch the world around them in ways that are truly unique and profound,” said Brenneman. As the mom of the main character and heroine of the book, “I became the stepping stone, the bridge from her world to ours and the first person she was able to trust. It is with Genevieve’s approval and her fascination in learning about herself, joined with her desire to open the eyes of the world around her about autism, that I tell her story.”
