The decision to divorce is an important one; whether to retain an attorney to represent you is also very important. Many people who divorce represent themselves to save money. Others use the services of paralegals. As a matter of fact, more people represent themselves than those who are represented by an attorney. But the decision to forego legal representation is not a decision which should be made lightly. My father raised me to be a “do-ityourselfer.” And my passion is gardening. So, I figured that I could landscape my own backyard. I set about doing those things that I knew to do, read books about what I did not know, and I learned from my mistakes along the way. It took me longer to complete my yard than it would have taken a landscaper, took more effort on my part, but it cost me less. Now it looks like an attorney landscaped my backyard. During the nineteen years I have practiced law, I have had many potential clients seek my counsel after a court hearing or trial that did not go well, or after their rights have expired due to the lapse of time. These clients had decided to not take action, or to not seek legal counsel, when they should have. The law does not favor those who “sleep on their rights.” And courts do not like revisiting issues which have been the subject of prior hearings. So, when clients come to me after a court hearing, it is usually the case that little can be done or that whatever can be done cannot be done as inexpensively as it might have been done if the client had been represented by counsel in the first place. There are costs to inaction. Consider this hypothetical situation. Ms. Green has been

separated from her husband for five years. They have two children together, but Ms. Green has never requested an order for child support. Had she requested child support five years earlier, Ms. Green would have been awarded a monthly amount of $750 for child support. Because she did not request support, the total amount of support that Ms. Green has waived is $45,000. The person who pays support pursuant to a support order can also be caught in this trap if that person loses his employment and does not file a motion to modify his support obligation. Very often a client would have come out ahead financially if the client had retained an attorney to file the proper documents with the court at the appropriate times. However, most people do not understand the significance of their actions, or their failure to take action. As far as my landscaping is concerned, I sit on my patio some evenings and regret not having employed a professional to landscape my yard. Fortunately for me, I did no damage that a landscaper could not fix today. Your legal rights, on the other hand, have an expiration date. So, if the issues in your particular circumstances are important to you, do not hesitate in retaining counsel to assist you from the earliest stage of your case. Your ignorance of your legal rights could affect you for many years after your case is finished. Law Office of H.F. Layton © 2010, 8660-B Brentwood Blvd., Brentwood 925-240-1040. – Advertisement

The 2011 Brentwood Relay For Life team captain meetings begin Tuesday, Jan 18 at 7 p.m. in the Delta Valley Athletic Club, 120 Guthrie Lane in Brentwood. Subsequent meetings will be held on the third Tuesday of the month. The annual Relay For Life fundraising event will be held June 11 and 12 at Liberty High School’s Ohmstede Field. According to 2011 event chair and cancer survivor Wanda Zimmerman, ”It’s going to be a year filled with hope and more birthdays.” Zimmerman and event co-chair Lynn Gursky are taking this year’s event theme, “Hope is a gift,” to new heights, striving to garner 137 teams, more than 300 registered survivors and a fundraising goal of $257,000. This will be the seventh year for one of the most successful Relay For Life events in California and will put the Brentwood community at close to $1.5 million raised to support the American Cancer Society’s research, education, advocacy and free services for cancer patients and their families.

Fatal dog attack investigation widens by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Police are investigating a report that a German shepherd attacked two Pomeranians just hours before a prize show dog was fatally mauled just two miles away allegedly by an off-duty San Leandro police dog. The police dog is also a German shepherd. “I’m happy that at least someone is finally taking control of this situation and working to figure this out,” said Lori Vogt, whose Pomeranians were attacked in a Brentwood park in December. “It took a while but I’m glad they’re doing it.” Vogt, who was in Brentwood visiting her sister over the holiday, was at a park off of Griffith Lane near Balfour Road on the morning of Dec. 26 when a German shepherd broke loose from a group of people and lunged toward Vogt, who was sitting on the lawn holding her two Pomeranians in her lap. “I was at the park with my sister and her two nieces, and we had our three dogs with us when all of a sudden I hear these kids yell, ‘Oh my god, the dog!’” said Vogt. “And I look up and the dog jumps onto my lap and starts snapping and growling at my dogs. “I just started kicking and kicking

It was on a leash but had somehow gotten away. Thankfully, no one was hurt.” Shaken by the experience, Vogt, who lives in Cloverdale, went back to her sister’s house following the attack and tried to put the incident out of her mind. But when she saw a newscast about the later dog mauling, Vogt realized the animal that attacked her

pets might have been the same dog. “I was watching the news at home in Cloverdale and I see the story about the dog that was killed by the police dog in Brentwood on the same day, and I looked at the footage and thought: Oh my God, that’s the same dog. I called the Brentwood Police Department to report the incident, but the dispatcher … told me I needed to file a report with the San Leandro

police.” Since then, the Brentwood Police Department has spoken with Vogt, and Chief Mark Evenson said his department would conduct an investigation into the events. Approximately four hours after Vogt’s dogs were attacked, Adam Lovell’s Finnish Spitz show dog, Chloe, was killed allegedly by an offduty San Leandro police dog approximately two miles north of the prior incident along the Marsh Creek Trail near Sand Creek Road. Witnesses said that dog, also a German shepherd, was in a group of children, adults and other dogs when it broke away while reportedly being walked by a family member of the dog’s handler. “ … All of a sudden the German shepherd lunged at Chloe, and the woman who was holding the dog on the leash started yelling, “I can’t control the dog, I can’t control the dog,’” said Lovell. Lovell’s dog died of its injuries two days later. The police dog – and his handler – have remained on active duty since the incident, and Lovell said he had received no response from the San Leandro police until this week; nearly a month after the incident. “They finally called and said they see Mauling page 12A

Award a pleasant shock for Kendalls by Samie Hartley Staff Writer It’s been a few weeks since Gary Kendall discovered that his automotive repair shop, Kendall Automotive, was selected as the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year, but it’s taking him a while to get used to the title. “When I heard that we were selected, my knees started to buckle,� Kendall recalled. “I’m still awestruck. Of all the businesses in town, to be selected is such an honor.� While Kendall is a man of few words, his wife Karen, who serves as the business’s accountant, is able to sum up the shock: “It was a total surprise when we heard the news. Gary and I both had the same thought, ‘What?’ I thought business of the year only went to the big businesses in town, and we’re just a small business in this old building, so the news was a complete shock. It’s still setting in, but we feel so honored to be chosen.� The Chamber has been honoring businesses since 2005, but despite Karen’s assumption, a business with four employees is just as capable of winning the honor as one with 20 employees. The purpose of the Business of the Year award is to honor a Brentwood business for its contribution in making Brentwood a better place to live and work, and this year the Chamber of Commerce decided that Kendall Automotive fits that criteria. Perhaps Gary is still flabbergasted by

the Business of the Year designation because he never thought he’d own his own business in the first place. He began tinkering with cars more than 30 years ago after graduating from high school. He took classes at Contra Costa College and became a mechanic. He was perfectly happy spending his day fixing cars, but when he began to suffer from back pains in the early 1990s, his doctor suggested it was time to start delegating the work, a

concept that was foreign to him. “The only way to delegate is to be the boss, and I had never considered that before,� Gary said. “Maybe once or twice, but it was a fleeting thought. I’d been wrenching since high school. I never thought about being the boss. After the doctor told me that I should start delegating, I took a business class just to see what it would take to start a business. That was the best thing

I could have done.� So did the class leave him prepared and confident to take on the challenge? “If anything, the class struck some fear into me, but I thought I had a different way of doing things.

He’s received a lot of positive feedback from customers over the years, but the greatest compliment is when new customers come in saying they were referred to Kendall Automotive by a friend or family member. Between Gary and his sole mechanic, Gari Freking, Kendall Automotive is able to service about 35 cars per week, handling everything from oil changes and routine maintenance to major repairs.

If you are a landlord, there has been a change to the tax law that you need to be aware of. Starting Jan. 1 of this year, landlords must supply a 1099 to all service providers that they paid more than $600 to during the year. This means vendors that provided services like repairs, plumbing, landscaping, etc. This applies to both commercial and residential property. Prior to this, the law only required those people in full-time property management to send out 1099s, now it covers almost all types of landlords, with a few limited exemptions. The three exemptions I could find so far are: 1. If you are only renting out your own principal residence for a limited time, and you don’t have any other rentals. 2. If your total rent is $600 or less for the year. 3. If filing the 1099 would cause a “hardship” per forthcoming IRS rules. I imagine these rules will be pretty strict. Saying you are “busy” probably won’t suffice! This means if you are a landlord and

don’t meet one of the exemptions, you need to start collecting federal tax ID numbers from your vendors. You can use the W-9 form that can be downloaded from www.IRS.gov. Otherwise the IRS may fine you $50 per 1099 that wasn’t filed, and maybe even keep fining you until it’s done. The purchase of “goods” is not to be included in the new 1099 requirement, but that WILL be included in 2012, so this is only a partial reprieve. I’m not sure if that means that if you put in new carpet, you only need to 1099 your carpet vendor on the amount of their labor, and not the cost of the carpet. I’m not a tax expert but I just wanted to bring this to your attention so you can discuss the details with your tax professional.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters score for the borrower and Fannie Mae cannot lend. The third (and final) note worthy item is that both the amount of lobsters a fishermen has to choose from and the amount of buyers Fannie Mae has to choose from are rapidly declining. Due to this fact the government bodies for both fishermen and Fannie Mae alike are tightening their respective belts for their 2011 seasons. Although I’m not too sure the exact ramifications being put in place on the lobster fishing profession, I can briefly elaborate on the changes Fannie Mae is making. Beginning in April of 2011 pricing (rates) for borrowers without credit scores above 740 will see an increase in their rates for no other reason than risk. After completing their annual reports Fannie feels that to best protect their investors an increase in “risk based pricing” has to take place. The lower the FICO score the higher the risk, which in turn will reflect in a higher interest rate. Don’t be caught in Fannie Mae’s hook-net (the only legal net used to catch California’s spiny lobster)…if you’re thinking of purchasing a home now, more than ever, is the time to seriously evaluate your credit. If you have any real estate lending related questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to write me at tfreymortgages@yahoo.com or call me directly on my cell phone, (925) 726-1444.

If we were to compare lobster fishing and the fishermen who make their living off of this fish to larger lending entities – Fannie Mae in particular – fishing for their perfect borrower, do you think we’d be able to draw any similarities? As we’re right in the middle of California spiny lobster season what better time than now to find out… The first note worthy item is that both lobster fishermen and Fannie Mae have to annually report to their governing agency. For fishermen this is to ensure their lobsters were of the right size, they fished within the areas clearly marked for legal fishing, and so that the governing bodies have a bench mark to help set this year’s prices and next year’s regulations. As Fannie Mae puts it; “These reviews and the resulting price changes ensure that Fannie Mae is positioned to provide a stable source of liquidity to its lender partners.” The second note worthy item is that both lobster fishermen and Fannie Mae only have one true gauge in which to judge their catch. For the fishermen, accordingly to 2010 regulations, the smallest California spiny lobster allowed to be kept after catching is the equivalent in body length of 20 centimeters, or 7.9 inches. For Fannie Mae, according to 2010 regulations, the smallest credit score allowed for any potential buyer with 20% is a 620. Anything less than a 20 centimeter lobster for the fishermen has to be thrown back, just as anything less than a 620 FICO

CSD ushers in new board by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Discovery Bay’s new Community Services District (CSD) board was sworn in at its regular meeting on Jan. 5, and district board positions were voted on for the coming year. Kevin Graves will retain his presidency, Brian Dawson will replace Mark Simon as vice president, and Simon will assume the role of president pro-tem. “I’m really looking forward to the new year,” said Graves. “I feel there’s a lot of positive energy on the board and I think we all feel there’s a lot to be accomplished.

But I’m excited to be here and look forward to a great year.” Tetreault, the board’s longest-sitting

wanted to come and record my statement about what happened to Chloe,” said Lovell. “We’ll see what happens.” Vogt’s incident occurred within 1,000 feet of the Marsh Creek Trail, just two miles from where Chloe was attacked, and she believes the two incidents involve the same dog. “I am very, very confident that it’s the same officer and that it’s the same dog involved in both incidents,” said Vogt after looking at a picture of the dog and its handler on the San Leandro Police Web site. “I’ve said all along that the owner was a short, heavyset man with dark hair. I’m sure it’s him.” On Friday, Lt. Jeff Tudor of the San Leandro police department said he had not yet heard of the Vogt incident. On Tuesday, Vogt said she was contacted by the San Leandro Police Department to take her statement on the incident. Repeated phone calls this week to Tudor and the San Leandro PD from The Press were not returned. Vogt is hopeful the investigation is finally moving in the proper direction. “It appears that they’re trying to get this cleared up, and I’m happy about that,” she said. “This was an attack and an assault. I wasn’t just walking by them or even near them. The dog came charging at me and it was a terrifying experience. I hope nothing like that ever happens again.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

The former tenant, the East County division of the YMCA, went insolvent last April, and since then the city has been paying for the upkeep of the buildings. Like many abandoned properties, the site has been vandalized and copper wire stolen from the power boxes. City staff hopes that by selling off the abandoned fitness equipment, the city will be able to raise the money needed to repair the wiring and restore power to the portables so that quality programs, services and amenities consistent with the intent of the original land dedication of the Moura property may be realized. “There is no power – no copper left for the building,” reported Recreation Supervisor Lindsey Bruno at Tuesday’s meeting. “The quote we received to repair the building and bring it back to up – just to get copper – is $13,000. It’s a lot of money, and we’re hoping that by dispersing and disposing of some of the equipment, we’ll get that cost back so we don’t have to be entirely out

The City of Oakley estimates that it will cost $13,000 to replace the copper wiring stolen from the power boxes at the Moura Property, former home to the Delta Family YMCA. The city is currently seeking proposals from organizations to repurpose the five modular buildings on the property. of pocket for that $13,000.” Bruno added that the city has invested about $3,000 in the buildings’ upkeep. Oakley owns the buildings but lacks the funds to operate and maintain a fitness center. The Berkeley YMCA has already bought a portion of the equipment, and now staff will be seeking bids from other agencies to dispose of the remaining cardiovascular equipment and weight machines. The council voted to grant $6,000 worth of equipment to the Oakley Elementary School District to be used at O’Hara

and Delta Vista middle schools, and $3,000 to the Liberty Union High School District (LUHSD) to be used at Freedom High in Oakley. Councilman Randy Pope said he liked the idea of supporting the schools, but asked that the LUHSD give the equipment to Freedom and not to its other schools, so that Oakley students get the benefit of the donation. As for selling the equipment that remains after the schools have selected their donated items, the council suggested such courses as seeking bids for individual items

or selling the collection in bulk. According to an estimate from Bruno’s staff reports, the city could get $15,000 for the items in bulk and possibly more than $40,000 if sold online or to used equipment dealers. City Manager Bryan Montgomery said staff would allow the schools to bid on the remaining items, and the offer would be extended to local gyms and the public. The best bid might come from local agencies, but Montgomery said the best bid could come from other regions of the state or even outof-state agencies. The recreation division has shown interest in using one of the buildings as a secondary site to host programs and 1 acre of the 6-acre property remains dedicated to the all-abilities playground the council approved last year. Proposals to repurpose the buildings will be accepted through Feb. 14. Tours of the property will be conducted on Jan. 19 at 11 a.m. and Jan. 27 at 3 p.m. Staff will review all applications that qualify and is expected to make a recommendation to the council at its March 8 meeting. At that time, the council will make its selections and contract negotiations will commence. Montgomery informed the council that it may reject any and all proposals if the proposals don’t live up to the community expectations of the property – in which case, the council may decide to remove the five buildings and start afresh.

COMMUNITY

Chiropractors: Get Your ESS in Shape Family Practice chiropractors are marshalling forces in a nationwide effort – New.You.2011. – providing complimentary health consultations and services. During the month of January, many of the nation’s more than 60,000 chiropractors will be helping the community to Get Your ESS in Shape. ESS denotes the three key components of fitness: Endurance, Strength and Structure. According to Dr. Brandon Roberts, author of the bestseller “The 100 Year Lifestyle Workout,” “We will be sharing

Working from page 1A laws, but rather a place where Antioch residents can talk about ways to improve the city without asking for money. People have posted pictures of children playing in happier, safer Antioch times as a way of showing what they want the city to return to. Community clean-up events, which used to be scheduled by the police department but have been delayed due to budget cuts, have been organized on the page’s wall. “I joined right away because I thought ‘this is great; there’s other citizens that agree with me and want to stop the crime here,’” said Kenji Freitas, a 44-year resident of Antioch. “Having lived here a long time, I’ve seen the change in the city probably from a different viewpoint than a lot of younger people that came in later on. …

Police from page 1A Community activist Gary Gilbert said Tuesday that, according to an employee at the center, a private security company’s armed guard there was to be eliminated. Such an action would be “totally unacceptable given the previous crime issues that plagued the shopping center two years ago but decreased substantially after full-time armed security personnel began patrolling the area,” Gilbert said by e-mail this week. The center’s management could not be reached for confirmation. “With the crime rate on the rise, I hope you understand that you’re putting us in a

information with people on how they can experience optimum health, and get in the best shape of their lives through nutrition, exercise and the removal of nerve interference in the spine.” The public is invited to attend a New. You.2011. lecture on Sunday, Jan. 23 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at the Intuitive Healing Center Antioch, 213 G St. The event features complimentary health and fitness information, and appointments for complementary chiropractic examinations will be offered to residents of all ages. Call 925-

757-7571 for an appointment. “We will be teaching families about the importance of all three components of your ESS, and how structure supports the body’s natural ability to heal itself without drug intervention,” said Roberts. One in 10 Americans currently participates in regular chiropractic care. And according to the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, more than half a billion children also receive chiropractic care each decade in the United States and abroad. Roberts’ office is affiliated with The

100 Year Lifestyle. He is also a member of The Family Practice, an international chiropractic group that is dedicated to leading family healthcare and lifestyle fitness. Members of The Family Practice who have helped organize New.You.2011. served more than 60,000 new patients last year and performed nearly 12 million adjustments around the world. To find out more about how chiropractic treatment can boost the body’s immune system and keep your ESS balanced, call 925-7577571.

It’s just sad to see a nice town go downhill like that.” Freitas and a couple dozen other people from the site made it to Tuesday’s City Council meeting, many holding “Take Back Antioch Supporter” signs printed up by Sheila White, an Antioch resident for 41 years and a member of the Garrow Estates Neighborhood Watch. White heard about the Facebook page from her son and is thrilled that a group of citizens – in light of cuts to the city and police department – are focused on making a positive difference in Antioch. “We want to support our community,” White said. “But we have to have some support, too. We’ve already learned the hard way that you can’t accomplish anything without police backup, and we don’t have

police backup right now.” People have also posted photos of graffiti in their area, showing what they hope they can improve. Larry Treat, a graffiti abatement volunteer for the Antioch Community Team, posted several of these pictures and hopes that a stronger volunteer effort will help stop the growing trend of tagging. Treat, who has been living in Antioch for 12 years, said the quick removal of graffiti might discourage criminals from desecrating buildings and other city structures and provoke them to go somewhere else. He’s hoping that Take Back Antioch can build off the progress made by ACT, such as cleaning up a homeless encampment in a city park that had gotten out of control. “At this point, with what Brittney has

developed, we’re ready to just join with her,” Treat said. “She’s a natural leader. I’m feeling it and I’m loving it.” Gougeon has been meeting with city officials such as Mayor Jim Davis and city councilman Gary Agopian since the creation of her group. She’s hoping that Take Back Antioch can become a hub of discussion and support for Antioch citizens who feel unsafe or ignored. “I totally endorse what they’re trying to accomplish,” Agopian said. “What they’re looking for is for Antioch to be that safe, vibrant and inclusive place that we all want. I agree with that and I support that. … I think the key for us is to harness it where we’re working together to accomplish those goals.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

very dangerous situation,” Medina told the council. “How are we supposed to feel comfortable with the fact that we are not protected?” The acting chief urged the public to focus on his officers’ accomplishments. Though the 15 homicides in 2010 represent a major spike from 2009, Cantando pointed out that arrests have been made in 12 of those cases, a tribute to the quick work of the police force. Cantando shared other statistics, comparing the past two years. From January through November of 2010, Antioch actually saw fewer violent crimes – 840 in 2009 to

792 in 2010. However, in that same period, property crimes excluding arson jumped from 2,455 in 2009 to 2,774 in 2010. The department will likely lean more on the community as the budget crunch increases. The city has established an account benefiting the police department at Antioch Community Federal Credit Union, 301 G St. Donations may also be dropped off at City Hall or the department headquarters. Antioch Auto Center president Tom Nokes has promised to match whatever the community can raise, up to $100,000. Cantando also called for citizens to be a little more aware of their surroundings

and not be afraid to call police if something looks suspicious. As officers await their fate, no resolution has been reached in terms of concessions from the Antioch Police Officers Association, according to City Manager Jim Jakel. The city and APOA met in closed session before and after Tuesday night’s meeting. Talks were positive, said councilman Gary Agopian, and a resolution might be reached within a week. Jakel is hoping that agreements from all seven labor organizations can be brought to council by its Feb. 8 meeting. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

One of her better games came in the loss to Daugherty Valley, when Cephas grabbed six rebounds. “She has a chance to be very, very good,” Anger said. Junior guard Monique Mulder leads the team in steals and assists and has contributed 6.2 points per game.

Anger has been pleased with the efforts of sophomore guards Sabrea Coleman and Kai Butler, and junior guard Jennifer Keyes. “We have a lot of depth,” Anger said. “We have some really top-flight young players. They make practice more challenging. They push the older players.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Ahead of them is sophomore midfielder/defender Alicia Palma, who has notched five goals and five assists. “It’s hard to compete with what we did last year, but we’re really building it up,” said Lucido. “At first I was worried about communication, but it looks like we’re getting through to the younger players.” The Panthers are hoping to finish at least in the top four in league play, which would equal their finish from last year and likely earn them another trip to the playoffs. But it

won’t be easy. Freedom and Liberty are their primary competition, and Heritage plus Deer Valley are also potential obstacles. Antioch completed the preseason with a 4-7-1 record. The majority of the losses came against top teams from the East Bay Athletic League, which fields a deep pool of talent derived from strong club teams. Since finding themselves on the wrong end of consecutive shutouts, 7-0 to Archbishop Mitty and 6-0 to Amador Valley, the Panthers have posted a 21-1 record. “We started out slow,” said Bickford. “We do have a lot of freshmen, so it was dif-

ficult trying to mesh them in with our style of play. But overall, I see a progression with them. It’s really nice to see them where they are now after the first day of practice.” The league season began on Jan. 11 with a 2-1 loss to cross-town rival Deer Valley, which finished the preseason at 5-3. League games will be played Tuesdays and Thursdays until the finale on Feb. 10. “Looking at the other teams, I think that we have more strength now,” Huerta said. “I think we can beat the other teams; I think we have the strength and ability.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

For the last two seasons, girls varsity soccer teams played all of their Bay Valley Athletic League opponents three times. This gave them less of a preseason to work out the kinks. This year, BVAL teams face each other only twice, giving schools more of a chance to play non-league opponents. Antioch, comprising mainly underclassmen, has taken advantage of the enhanced preseason, allowing the team more time to get its act together. Head coach Scott Joseph and his girls took advantage of the extra preseason games, winning two out of three in last weekend’s Tri-Valley Classic in preparation for what promises to be a tough BVAL slate. “We probably bit off a little bit more than we can chew against Archbishop Mitty (a 7-0 loss). But we’re doing a good job,” said Joseph. “We’re beating the teams that we’re supposed to beat and yeah, we took our lumps. But tactically, the girls are getting it. At the tournament, we played on turf, we played fast and that helps.” Joseph also felt that the hard losses against the top teams in the Bay Area provided his players the opportunity to learn their weaknesses. Similarly, the better games against the lesser opponents gave the Panthers the chance to discover their strengths. The young team is led by three senior tri-captains: outside midfielder Gianna Lucido, forward Jessica Huerta and defender/ midfielder Paige Bickford. Huerta is tied with

Pro BMX riders thrill the crowd Adult by Michael Dixon

Correspondent

As part of their Northern California Tour, Animal Bikes and Skavenger Bikes gave BMX enthusiasts the opportunity to meet nationally known riders Edwin De La Rosa, Chris Gille, Tom White, Brandon “Lil Taco” Olivero and Pat Wang. The meet-and-greet was held at Brentwood Bike Co. over the weekend. Saturday’s cold and weather did little to dampen the enthusiasm of those in attendance. In addition to meeting the pro riders, local riders got a chance to ride, as well as see their favorite riders show off their skills. “I like meeting the team,” said Nick Garcia, 14. “They’re really cool guys, they’re really good at biking, and I like biking. I just thought it would be a fun event.” The event was organized by Nick Benson, West Coast Sales representative for Animal Bikes, based in New Jersey. Benson said the purpose of these events is to give his company a chance to personally meet the merchants and give kids a chance to see professional riders. Animal Bikes had already completed a Southern California tour. The Brentwood stop was the third of four stops on its Northern California tour. “They get to hang out with them, they get to ride with them, they get to sign some autographs, get some memorabilia, create some memories,” said Benson. “We were talking earlier about how we still remember things like this from when we were younger.”

Improving Lions look forward to BVAL play by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer At the beginning of the season, Liberty High boys varsity basketball head coach Jon Heinz didn’t quite know what kind of team he’d put on the court. Heinz knew his team was young, led so far by 6-foot-1-inch sophomore guard Brandon White. But as the Lions prepare for league play, they own a respectable 8-6 record. They’ve already doubled their win total from last season, when they went 421, including an 0-14 record against Bay Valley Athletic League opponents. Heinz and the Lions will get a shot

at their first league victory since they beat Clayton Valley on Feb. 12, 2008 when they travel to Pittsburg on Friday night. The Pirates finished preseason with a 4-9 record. White has averaged 16.1 points per game, a team-high. Senior guard Matt Sisneros has scored 10.1 points per contest, and junior guard Francisco Cortez has stolen an average of 4.2 balls per game. Liberty finished last week strong, beating Napa and El Camino. In the 6534 victory over Napa, White scored 24 points and didn’t play the fourth quarter. Junior forward Darius Brown chipped in 12 points.

“We came out and pressed them all night,” Heinz wrote in an e-mail. White also led Liberty in scoring during the Lions’ 59-45 win over El Camino, putting up 19 points. Brown and junior forward Darren Meeks each scored 10. The Colts, from South San Francisco, entered the game with an 8-3 record. In other BVAL action, Deer Valley hosts rival Antioch on Friday night to tip off league action. The Wolverines head into the game with a league-best preseason record of 12-3; Antioch is 7-9. Deer Valley junior guard Olajuwon Garner averages a team-best 22.3 points per game. Senior forward Andre McPhail is

averaging a double-double – 17.1 points, 16.9 rebounds. Senior guard Michael Crawley leads the Panthers, averaging roughly 14 points and 11 rebounds per game. Fellow senior guard Namuji Madoshi has also put up about 11 points per game. The defending league champion Heritage Patriots welcome Freedom on Friday night. So far this season, the Patriots are 10-5 and coming off a Jan. 7 loss to Rodriguez. The Falcons enter Friday’s game at 9-5 and are on a four-game winning streak after toppling East Union, Stagg, Franklin and Armijo. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Friend your way to fitness on Facebook SAMIE HARTLEY

books are gathering dust, and the exercise DVDs now serve as coasters. If you’re still

trying to make good on that New Year’s resolution to lose weight, the promise you’ve been making to yourself year after year, maybe it’s time to take a new approach. And chances are you’ve already got the tools you need to succeed. You’ve got a cell phone, don’t you? That’s right. Motivation to lose weight has been tucked in your pocket or buried in your purse all this time. By utilizing social networks such as Facebook, you can tap into a network of friends who will help you stay on task to reach your goal. “The best way is to have accountability (to reach your weight loss goals) by telling everyone you know,” said personal trainer Christian Aguirre. “So posting pictures on Facebook, your blog or YouTube channel to show your progress is a great way to peer pressure yourself to do well.” The easiest way to spread this news with one click is to post it on Facebook or Twitter. By announcing your goal to the world, you’ve immediately got a group of people who are going to want updates on your progress, and by accessing the Facebook application on your phone, you can update your progress as it happens. Some Facebook users are so dedicated to losing weight that they start their own fan pages so that their friends and family can directly track their progress. With regular posts

and photo updates, people can see how you’re doing and encourage you to keep going. U.C. San Diego professor James Fowler, co-author of “Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks and How They Shape Our Lives,” said Facebook can play a huge role in the success or failure of weight-loss goals. “You can’t do it alone,” Fowler said in a 2010 interview on “The Colbert Report.” “What you really need to do if you want to make a positive change is get your friends and family involved because they are going to have a strong influence on you. If you try to lose weight on your own and they’re not trying to lose weight as well, it’s going to be very hard for you to meet your goals.” So when you’re standing in line at the grocery store, let people know that you’re stocking up on fruits and vegetables and didn’t even go down the snack aisle. Your friends will be proud of you. They might even follow your lead. In a 2010 study at the University of Georgia, volunteers were divided into two groups. One group watched a person eat a cookie and the other group watched a person eat a carrot. When the test groups were presented with the option to eat a carrot or cookie, 71 percent of those who watched a person eat a cookie chose to snack on a cookie. Author Michelle vanDellen determined that self-control is influenced by the behaviors of those around us, so people tend to mimic what others are doing despite how they would typically respond to a situation. By publicizing your goals to lose weight on Facebook, you are channeling peer pressure to your advantage and encouraging others to join your effort. There are groups you can join on Facebook to help keep you motivated, but if you

Numerous social networking pages offer advice, support and companionship for those trying to get in shape, and you can carry them right with you on your smart phone. have a group of friends who share the same goal, start up your own group and look for others in your area who also want to lose weight. You can’t be the only person in East County who resolved to shed some pounds in 2011, so work together, support each other and make this the year that you finally meet your weight loss goals.

n the first week of January, Delta Valley Athletic Club pilates instructor Sue Iverson almost

always sees an uptick in students, as Zumba instructor Allison Harris leads a class in a demonstration of the fun dancing exercise activity.

New Year’s resolutions start brewing. Keeping those students working and sweating off the extra weight throughout the year, however, is the main challenge for Iverson and countless other fitness leaders. Iverson was one of several health experts on hand at the recent New Year, New You expo held at Delta Valley. The event was a fitting motivational tool for anyone looking for a way to get in better shape, finally start saving some money or try on a new look. Several people working the expo shared ways to make those resolutions stick, not just through the month, but until the ball drops for 2012. Strength in numbers One of Iverson’s tips is to work out in a group instead of by yourself. In her classes she emphasizes positive reinforcement – easier to gain when you can feed off the enthusiasm of others. Working out in a group also makes you feel like you’re not alone, which fosters a sense of community and friendship. Zumba – an increasingly popular, Latin-inspired dance-

fitness program – instructor Allison Harris said that a workout buddy usually keeps you motivated and coming back to classes. And seeing people return again and again brings a smile to instructors’ faces. Sharing your goal with a friend also helps you bounce ideas around and figure out what works best for you. Small goals lead to big goals Hope Desroches, who created the New Year, New You expo last year, said that

breaking down a resolution into smaller, achievable goals is a great way for continued success. Desroches quit smoking and dropped 80 pounds in 2010, crediting the micro-to-macro way of thinking. “My first goal was to lose 10 pounds,” said Desroches, who noted that she planned to save more money this year with a similar mindset. One of Desroches’ health mentors,

Tammy Tribble, echoed this plan. A large goal can seem far away and out of reach. Breaking it down is a way to make progress. As Tribble put it, “All those little steps really add up.” Visualize your goal and make it tangible Another key, especially when goals seem too large, is to visualize success.

“The Uncensored Message that My Wife Asked Me Not to Write…” Dear friend, Well, at first, my wife asked me not to write this. We had a big discussion about it. Finally, she understood what I was trying to do, and actually helped me write this letter to you. Here’s the thing. In my office, most of the people that come in to see me tell me they’ve “tried everything.” They’ve had “every” test, wound up with huge medical bills, and are still no better off. Often, they’ve been subjected to medications that have only served to temporarily mask symptoms. That’s not what most people are looking for. Health, or the lack of it, very often has simple causes, and very reasonable corrections. That’s what I’m going to tell you about. But, before I tell you more, let me tell you something about me… I remember it like it was yesterday. I’m the “athletic type” and like most young guys, I think that nothing can go wrong. That’s when I’m hit with a dose of reality. I’m playing basketball when it happens. As I’m going for a rebound, I get pushed. I land hard on my lower back and feel a ‘pop’. But, there’s more… I’m in so much pain that I can barely move. I go to see my medical doctor, but all he can do is give me drugs for the pain. But, that doesn’t help. Three weeks later I’m still in pain. I’m frustrated and scared that I may never play sports again. Now, listen to this… A friend of mine convinces me to give his doctor a try. This new doctor does an exam, takes some films, and then ‘adjusts’ my spine. The adjustment doesn’t hurt, it actually feels good. I get relief, and within a

week, I feel much better! Oh, did I mention that this doctor is a chiropractor? Chiropractic works so well for me, and I’m so impressed with the other ‘miracles’ I see in his office, that I eventually go to chiropractic school myself. And that’s how it happened! Back to what my wife (at first) didn’t want me to write. It’s that chiropractic is one of the biggest “secrets” in health care. Few people (relatively, only 10% have been to a chiropractor) know about it. And, many of the rest could be helped, if they only knew the true story. So, I often feel like shouting it from the mountaintop! Is that “professional?” Well, maybe it is, or maybe not. But, I’ve decided people should know. For the last eleven years, people from Brentwood and the surrounding area have come to see me with their back problems. They also come to me with their: • Headaches • Migraines • Chronic pain • Neck pain • Shoulder/arm pain • Whiplash from car accidents • Carpal tunnel syndrome • Hip pain • Elbow pain • Numbness in limbs • Athletic injuries just to name a few… Here’s what some of your neighbors had to say: “During my pregnancy, I suffered from low back pain and sciatica. Dr. Jardin helped me become pain free!” (Kim M.)

“I had neck pain, tingling and numbness in my arms and hands. Thanks to Dr. Jardin, the pain is gone. I feel great!” (Diane W.) “I suffered with constant TMJ pain and headaches with dizziness. I spent over 25 years trying different things to help and Dr. Jardin’s adjustments have been the most effective!” (Patti W.)

Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I can’t really take the credit. The truth is that I’ve never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure, and the body responds by healing itself. Of course, all people respond differently to care, but we get terrific results. It’s as simple as that! Exciting Offer – Look, I know you’re smart. You want to get to the cause of your problem, and not just cover it up with drugs. When you are one of the first 20 people to call and schedule a new patient exam (by January 31, 2011) you’ll receive that entire exam for $37. That’s with consultation, exam, any necessary x-rays, full report of my findings….the whole ball of wax, and there’s no hidden fees. But, call right away because we expect to be flooded with calls as this exam normally costs $249. Again, there’s only 20 of these slots, so don’t miss out (by law, this offer excludes Medicare/Medicaid beneficiaries).

Great care at a great fee…Please, I hope that there’s no misunderstanding about quality of care just because I have a lower exam fee. You’ll get great care at a great fee. My qualifications…I’m a graduate of Western States Chiropractic. I’ve been entrusted to take care of tiny babies to entire families. For the past eleven years, I’ve been taking care of your neighbors in Brentwood. I just have that low exam fee to help more people who need care. My assistants are Morgan and Esmeralda, and they are both really great people. Our office is both friendly and warm and we try our best to make you feel at home. We have a wonderful service, at an exceptional fee. Our office is called JARDIN FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC and it’s at 7351-A Brentwood Boulevard (we are across the parking lot from McDonald’s, next to the Dollar Store). Our phone number is 925-516-5813. Call Morgan, Esmeralda, or me today for an appointment. We can help you. Thank you and God Bless. -Dan Jardin, D.C. P.S. When accompanied by the first, I am also offering the second family member this same examination for only $27. P.P.S. Can you imagine not having to wait at a doctor’s office? Well, your time is as valuable as mine. That’s why we have a no-wait policy. You will be seen within minutes of your appointment. P.P.P.S. Of course, all people respond differently to care. -Advertisement

What your eyes say about your health

E

veryone knows the eyes are the windows to the soul, but few people real-

ize the eyes are also windows to overall health, allowing eye doctors to see signs of chronic conditions.

Have you been longing to indulge in an ultimate beauty experience?

Sandy can help! Sandy (Sudha) is a highly talented Cosmetologist who has over 25 years of experience in providing beauty services to her clients. She specializes in an ancient method of hair removal called, “Threading”. She also specializes in facials such as Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasions LED Light Photo Facials, which is extremely safe and gentle – noninvasive alternative to dramatic plastic surgery procedures, laser resurfacing and other evasive treatments along with complete portfolio of skin and hair related services as required by State licensure and certifications. She believes that working closely with her clients requires patience and right attitude. These elements allow her to perform her work meticulously for her clients – whether it’s shaping a Perfect Eyebrow, a hi-lite or a chemical peel. The success of her unique approaches has ultimately led her to create and promote her own brand. Sandy has been awarded Best of Brentwood for 2008, 2009 and 2010 by US Commerce Association.

Our Philosophy: “I believe that the key to my success is twofold - a strong personal desire to be the best in my industry and by providing the best service possible to my clients. I have invested countless hours over the years to learn about the latest developments in the beauty industry. I back my skills and extensive experience with a strong educational background and have exceptional knowledge of principles, theories and practices of cosmetology as determined by the State Licensure and Certification. I firmly believe in working closely with my clients; treating them as individuals with specialized needs. I take the time necessary, with patience and care, to understand the preferences and choices of my clients and work hard to ensure their satisfaction.”

The eyes are the only place doctors can get a clear view of blood vessels, which can be significantly altered by conditions such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes. In fact, an eye exam that catches a condition such as diabetes in its early stages can often prevent complications. An annual comprehensive eye exam is about more than determining if you need glasses. It’s not a luxury; it’s a necessity. What gives eye doctors the advantage over other specialists? By examining the cornea, retina, and flow of blood through vessels around the eye, doctors can detect signs of health problems, including blood vessel leakage, retinal swelling and fatty deposits on the retina. People often visit their eye doctors first when experiencing sudden changes in vision due to fluctuations in

blood sugar. “The National Eye Institute estimates that more than 4 million people over the age of 40 have diabetic retinopathy, a condition marked by damage to the blood vessels in the retina,” said Susan Egbert, Director of Eye Health Management at VSP Vision Care. “This condition can lead to blindness if not treated early.” However, an annual eye examination can prevent 90 percent of all diabetes-related blindness. Remember, diabetes is a disease that affects the whole body. It’s not enough to know you have it; you must prevent and treat its complications as well.

New Year’s resolution brings about more permanent change. While the start of the year is a great time to make a major change in your diet or money habits, don’t consider springtime too late to start improving your life. “It’s never too late to begin,” Harris said. According to Tribble, it’s vital that you make your positive change a habit. A Castro Valley-based health coach and inspirational speaker, Tribble said that by making sure you set aside some time each day to focus on your goal now, it’ll become a natural part of your routine later in the year – “if you change a habit and do it enough days in a row.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

to how basketball players picture nothing but net when shooting free throws, Desroches said she could see herself in a smaller outfit throughout her weight-loss journey. Dreaming about yourself living your goal is a way to keep the fire burning, whether it’s imagining yourself skinnier or enjoying a vacation for which you’ve saved up. Desroches also wrote out a list of why she wanted to quit smoking. Being able to see those reasons every day kept her grounded and focused on her goal. “Taking time to write it all down,” Desroches said, “made all the difference.” Make it a habit Defining your goal as more than a

DePuy Orthopaedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson, has issued a worldwide recall of it’s ASRTM Acetabular System for Total Hip Replacement, after determining that these hip implants may fail at an alarming rate. The “metal-on-metal� composition of these implants can release particles into the patient, potentially causing serious and painful reactions — sometimes requiring complete revision surgery. Reportedly, Johnson & Johnson has been seeking medical releases from recipients so that their claims adjustors can speak with you directly and possibly take down statements without your having counsel present – an unwise action for any recipient to do. Having a defective hip implant in your body clearly demands having your own lawyer. You

must be very cautious with dealing with the manufacturer or its representative without proper legal representation. If you have a DePuy ASR TM product, please call us immediately, as there are time limits for filing a claim. You might already have problems with the implant about which you are unaware, so please contact us — and certainly do not forfeit your legal rights without talking to us.
