East County Wolverines remain candidates, undefeated measures

February 14, 2020

PAL Crowns BBQ King

by Aly Brown Staff Writer

With the primary election around the corner, residents of East County will have more to consider than simply choosing their presidential preference. Contra Costa County overlaps into various districts, but the cities located in the eastern portion — Antioch, Brentwood, Discovery Bay and Oakley, along with unincorporated land in between — are part of Congressional District 9, Senatorial District 7, State Assembly District 11 and Supervisorial District 3. Those who reside within these boundaries should study the following candidates and measures prior to Election Day, March 3. Federal For the United States Representative (District 9), Jerry McNerney, Antonio ‘Tony’ C. Amador and see Ballot page 22

Deer Ridge closure prompts code review by Kyle Szymanski

Since the golf course closed in September 2019, the Deer Ridge Golf Club has been boarded up, and bright orange barriers attempt to discourage people from trespassing on the property owned by SunCoast Golf Inc.

Staff Writer

Brentwood leaders have teed off with plans to evaluate city regulations regarding closed business buildings. The move is in response to visual and safety concerns that popped up following Deer Ridge Golf Club’s September closure. “What I would like to address is strengthening a code or codes to help us address the state of a building when a business closes its doors,” said Councilmember Karen Rarey, who requested the action that was subsequently approved by council. City officials noted that any forthcoming changes will apply to businesses citywide, not just to the golf club that spurred the action. “This is for the whole of Brentwood,” said Mayor Bob Taylor. “This is not just for Deer Ridge or Shadow Lakes or the Garin area. We need to make sure we put together an iron-clad discussion … If we are going to do it, the mayor is requesting we do it right. We make it equitable throughout the entire community.”

Rarey said the golf club exhibits several aesthetic and potential safety issues that warrant a larger, citywide review. Potential problems include ugly, bright-orange entrance barriers placed around the property, possibly inhibiting emergency personnel access and infringing upon the pleasant neighborhood appearance; pieces of natural, mismatched wood

Contra Costa Census Ballot drop-off sites 2020 Training Workshops for March primary The future of the community starts with Census 2020. The Census count comes once a decade to account for every person in the U.S. The count determines congressional districting and allocates critical funding for our communities for roads, affordable housing, schools and parks. Contra Costa County’s Census 2020 Complete Count Steering Committee has been building a network of trusted messengers to increase awareness and motivate residents to respond to the 2020 Census. The committee has awarded Census outreach and assistance grants totaling $280,000 to about 55 organizations to ensure a complete and accurate count and an additional $70,000 in Phase II minigrants that are available on a rolling basis through May 2020. The committee will host workshops to help better understand the importance of the Census and learn about outreach resources, tools and how to help our community members complete the census form. Workshops are mandatory for Contra Costa

County grantees and open to anyone interested in volunteering as a Census ambassador  to assist in outreach and education in Contra Costa County. The county’s census effort also focuses on ‘hardto-count’ Census tracts. Every person missed in the Census count is estimated to cost $2,000 a year in lost federal funds. Undercounting by 5 % could cost $1.1 billion over the next 10 years. Join one of the workshops to become a trusted 2020 Census Ambassador on Feb. 18, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at Willow Pass Community Center, 2748 East Olivera Road, in Concord; Feb. 24, from 3 to 5:30 p.m., at City of Richmond Civic Center, multipurpose room (basement level), 440 Civic Center Plaza, in Richmond; Feb. 25, from 1 to 3:30 p.m., at Civic Park Community Center, 1375 Civic Drive, in Walnut Creek; and March 2, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at Oakley Senior Center, 215 Second St., in Oakley.

Cancer support center debuts in East County “ … everything we do is

by Aly Brown Staff Writer

A nonprofit entity serving patients with cancer for 30 years will soon celebrate a grand opening at its new Antioch location. Cancer Support Community has offered grief support, exercise classes, nutrition training and more to cancer patients in the Bay Area for three decades, functioning out of its Walnut Creek location. Now, with the opening of its Antioch location at 3505 Lone Tree Way, officials invite the community to help celebrate its opening on Friday, March 13, from 2 to 4 p.m., with refreshments and a meet ‘n’ greet with staff, board members and those Peter Dudley, Cancer Support Community chief development officer, calls community members. “We don’t say we have clients; we say we have community members,” he said. “The people in support groups, all

built around creating that sense of community, of people helping people and people belonging.

Peter Dudley Cancer Support Community chief development officer of the classes, everything we do is built around creating that sense of community, of people helping people and people belonging.” Dudley expanded on the services, which include a broad range of psychosocial programs and services and professional counseling, in addition to classes centered around wellness for those living with cancer. “Cancer doesn’t just affect us physi-

cally,” said Cancer Support Community CEO James Bouquin. “It affects us psychologically, financially and socially, increasing stress and feelings of isolation. That’s why we don’t just provide the best therapist-led counseling, educational workshops and exercise classes; we create a community where patients, survivors, caregivers and family members are all welcome and encouraged to participate. And best of all, we do all this entirely free of charge.” To make it free for community members, Dudley noted funding for the organization is derived from individual donations, corporate sponsorships, fundraising events and charitable giving. When it comes to the Antioch location, the mission will be largely the same — to help people live longer and better with cancer — but Dudley shared that Cancer Support Community has recog-

nized the needs in East County are different than the needs in the Lamorinda area. Some of the plans will be tailored to the new location. “We plan on instituting some emergency financial grants to those with cancer,” he said, “and we’re planning on some transportation assistance.” Dudley further stated the volunteers operating the center are bilingual, they live in the community and are either patients, survivors or caregivers of those affected by cancer. “The volunteers are incredibly welcoming,” he added. “Everything we do is centered around making people feel at home.” The celebration will be held at the center, located at 3505 Lone Tree Way in Antioch, from 2 to 4 p.m. on Friday, March 13.

Brentwood police arrested three individuals suspected of a theft at Ulta Beauty Store and Salon in The Streets of Brentwood after they struck a Brentwood police cruiser and led police on a chase Monday, Feb. 10. “We responded to Ulta to a theft,” said Sgt. Eric Wernholm of the Brentwood Police Department (BPD). “The suspect vehicle was given. An officer responded to the area, found the suspect vehicle and engaged the suspect vehicle. The vehicle accelerated and collided with our officer.” The three suspects have been identifed as Keilaysha Usher, a 24-year-old woman from Oakland, Talmika Bates, a 24-yearold woman from Hayward, and Ramiah Armstrong, a 22-year-old woman from Richmond. The fourth suspect, Adrian Benton Jr., a 21-year-old man from Richmond, was also taken into custody. Police allege he arrived to pick up the women and help them flee the area. “This situation unfolded very rapidly, and we are very fortunate no innocent bystanders were injured,” said Lt. Walter O’Grodnick of the BPD. The suspects left Ulta heading toward Lone Tree Way in a white Nissan Murano. A BPD officer observed the Murano at the intersection of Shady Willow Lane and Lone Tree Way and attempted to enforce a traffic stop. The driver collided with the patrol car and fled. The officer, who suffered a minor

hand injury as a result of the collision, pursued the suspects. After losing sight of them, he found their car abandoned off Empire Avenue near the J.C. Penney store. “The three suspects inside had taken off on foot, and the vehicle was empty when we located it,” Wernholm said. “We knew, based on the time line, that the suspects were probably in the area.” Officers from the Brentwood, Oakley and Antioch police departments participated in the search for the suspects. Office. At least one suspect was taken into custody with the assistance of a K-9 unit. That suspect was placed under arrest and transported to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek. It is unclear if the injuries were suffered in the collision or during the apprehension. “I have no doubt the coordinated response and teamwork amongst the law enforcement agencies involved proved helpful in successfully apprehending all of the suspects,” O’Grodnick said. The theft is estimated to have netted $10,000 of merchandise. All four subjects were booked into the Martinez Detention Facility. The Contra Costa County Office of the District Attorney is reviewing the case to determine the charges that will be filed. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to call Brentwood Police Department dispatch at 925-809-7911. To view a slideshow, visit www.thepress.net/ multimedia/slideshows

County to explore revising ag land-use policies The Contra Costa Board of Supervisors is growing plans to revise the area’s land-use policies to increase agricultural sustainability and economic vitality. County leaders recently released 18 related recommendations, including a number of new agricultural land-use policy initiatives, which sprouted from a series of public meetings that dug into the county’s agriculture future, current obstacles to a healthier agricultural economy and agritourism opportunities and constraints. “This isn’t perfect, but it’s going in a great direction,” said District 3 Supervisor Diane Burgis, who carried on the endeavor first launched by former District 3 Supervisor Mary Nejedly Piepho in 2016. “I have gotten a lot of feedback from people who participated throughout the whole process that we are going in the right direction.” Just a handful of the proposed county agricultural area recommendations include allowing farm-to-table restaurants; bed and breakfast establishments; short-term rentals; farm stays; and large events. Other suggestions include adding equestrian and bike trails between farms, improving agricultural promotion signage and ramping up efforts to address illegal dumping. The majority of East Contra Costa’s agricultural lands are located east of Brentwood in the county’s designated agricultural core. Other major agricultural areas include the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, Tassajara Valley, Briones, Morgan Territory, Las Trampas and the surrounding plain of East County. The specifics of the proposed regulations are still materializing, but county

John Viano, Contra Costa Farm Bureau president, Contra Costa Winegrowers Association chair café in the ag core, before closing it to comply with county regulations. Brentwood City Councilmember Karen Rarey expressed support of farmers with small parcels, noting that in the agricultural core, where the majority of agricultural land uses are being proposed, 49% of farms are under 10 acres, and 76% are under 20 acres. “I thought the whole point of making these land-use changes was to help farmers, especially the struggling farmers on smaller parcels, helping them become sustainable by providing them with another revenue source,” she said. Burgis, however, noted that some small parcels are currently being manipulated for nonfarming purposes, something the process should try to avoid. “What we are seeing in East County is an increase in property value, because there are people who are buying these smaller parcels and turning them into what some people call ‘mega mansions,’” she said. “So what we are trying to do is preserve it as farm land. If someone wants to get into farming on those small parcels, that is a great thing. We just don’t want people to buy a piece

of property and say they are a farm-totable restaurant but not be a farmer.” The plan also paves the way for a variety of other unique experiences, including bed and breakfasts offering short-term stays in new or modified buildings; farm stays boasting a farm experience with lodging and meals for up to five groups at a time; short-term yurts (or little houses) allowed to usher in an outdoors experience while minimizing permanent land disturbance; and allowing farmers to host dinners for paying guests. County staff are expected to continue mulling over unrefined aspects of the plan, working on the development of the required policies and zoning amendments needed to carry out the future changes and crafting an overall work plan and timeline for evaluating and implementing the recommendations.

officials and agricultural leaders agree that the suggestions are a good first step. “We have come a long way in the past couple of years,” said John Viano, president of the Contra Costa Farm Bureau and chairman of the Contra Costa Winegrowers Association. “A little tweaking, and I think we might have something that we can all appreciate.” Farming advocates noted key sticking points that still needed to be addressed: including the minimum required parcel size for farm-to-table restaurants; the exact placement of buildings to prevent infringement upon agricultural growing operations; and how to prevent urban elements, such as sidewalks, bike lanes and unnecessary traffic lights, from ruining the area’s rural character. The recommendations call for farmto-table restaurants to be on parcels ranging from 10 to 40 acres in addition to other preliminary requirements, such as that 75% of the business’s fruits and vegetables be grown in the county but it must produce at least half from its own land. John Kopchik, the county’s director of  conservation  and  development, said various factors must be weighed in the parcel size requirement, including impact on neighbors; maintaining farm integrity; and stress on ground water and septic systems from increased use. However, a handful of prospective restaurateurs noted that their businesses could only survive on small parcels, such as 10 acres. “Requiring us to have 10 acres and then requiring us to purchase another 30 acres or entering into contracts has no rational basis for the purpose the (board of supervisors) is trying to achieve,” said Barbara Frantz, owner of Tess’ Community Farm Kitchen on Balfour Road, who previously operated a farm-to-table

A long, long time ago, someone who wanted to apply for a loan to buy a house would contact their local bank or savings and loan. Once the loan was approved, it would stay on that institution’s books. Eventually a “secondary” market grew where another institution would buy that loan and collect the payments going forward. This secondary market has now grown to the point where nearly 2 out of every 3 loans wind up there. It won’t matter which financial institution you apply to, if they plan to sell the loan on the secondary market, the loan won’t be approved unless it meets the minimum requirements to be purchased. But what if your application is deficient in one of the required areas? Maybe your credit score is just below the minimum, or your time on the job is short of what they require. Then you should look into what’s called a “portfolio” loan, meaning that the institution holds it in their portfolio of assets instead of selling it off.

The big difference with a portfolio loan is that they make their own decisions instead of being worried about being able to sell the loan on the secondary market. So there can be more flexibility and common sense when it comes to the lending decision if your application doesn’t check all the normal boxes. It’s possible that they may require a larger down payment or a higher interest rate than a loan that can be sold on the secondary market in exchange for thinking “outside the box.” The trade-off is that it can turn a “no” into a “yes.” [And no, I don’t wish that they would bring back the “liar” loans. This is simply an option for those applicants who are good credit risks, but don’t fit into the standard categories. Many self-employed people are great candidates for this type of loan.] If you have questions about real estate, call me at (925) 240-MOVE (6683). Voted “Best of Brentwood” multiple times.

Stiff competition at annual barbecue event by Tony Kukulich Staff Writer

Competing for only the second time, relative newcomer Adam Stewart cleaned up during the BBQ King Cook-Off in Brentwood, an annual competition that benefits the Brentwood Police Activities League (PAL) and the East Contra Historical Society. Held Sunday, Feb. 4, and hosted by Jim Wangeman at Harvest Park Bowl, this year’s event raised more than $7,000. Wangeman called the day a “win-win for everybody,” and attributes the success to both the serious competition and an effort to make sure everyone has fun. “We are thankful for such a great showing from our community,” said event organizer Darin Hassig. “PAL depends on donations to continue to provide a safe and academically based after school program that serves over 900 teens a month. We look forward to having a great turnout for our 2021 BBQ King Cookoff. I would like to thank all of our board members for a great turn out and for all the help they give to put on a successful event.” Attendees had the opportunity to sample the best that each of the event’s 15 competitors had to offer. “I’ve got to say, that every piece I tested was exceptional, and there were quite a few,” said City of Brentwood Councilmember Karen Rarey. “And best of all, the proceeds benefit the Police Activities League and the East Contra Costa Historical Society.

OBITUARIES

Meredith Fitzgerald Nunn

May 24, 1965 – Feb. 8, 2020 Surrounded by loving family, our beloved Farmer’s Daughter, Meredith Fitzgerald Nunn, passed into eternal rest on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2020. Brentwood’s farming community was home to Meredith her entire life, and she will be remembered fondly for many reasons, especially for the establishment and success of The Farmer’s Daughter Produce and U-Pick Farm, which she originated almost four decades ago. As a result of Meredith’s hard work and talents, her iconic red barn was a favorite throughout the Bay Area. Meredith was born  on May 24, 1965, to  farmer and former Brentwood mayor George Stanley Nunn and Lenore Fitzgerald Nunn. Meredith and George were best friends. She  spent much time at his fruit stand, as well as fruit stands owned by her uncles and aunts. Running around with her brother Stan and many cousins made for a rambunctious childhood. Meredith and Stan also spent much time playing with the “4th Street Gang” during a time in Brentwood when everyone knew your name. Energetic,  warm-hearted  and a friend to all, Meredith made an impact on so many. She employed countless Brentwood locals, young and old, and she had a proven talent for running her successful and beautiful fruit stand. Many local farmers credit Meredith with pioneering value-added agritourism in the area. Coffee lovers remember her corner  stand, and  Meredith’s memory of her individual customers was impressive. She could recite details about everyone, including their favorite variety of peach or if they preferred nonfat milk in their latte. Meredith was a longtime member of Harvest Time and

shared her talents while serving on the board and as president over the years. She also loved contributing to 4-H, FFA, the California State Fair, Contra Costa County Fair and the Brentwood Cornfest. Meredith loved to give back to those around her. She knew just the right ways to share her contagious good cheer.  As a member of the Brentwood Lions Club, she especially enjoyed volunteering at Special Kids Day and diabetes fundraisers and supplying whatever was needed. She often gathered toys for underprivileged children, hosted fundraising events at her farm and was a dedicated supporter of schools and students. Sharing her passion for farming came easily to Meredith. With her excellent people skills and knack for connecting, she

loved helping visitors from nonfarming areas experience agriculture  for the first time. Many knew Meredith liked to drive fast cars; few knew she was a race car driver. Meredith loved to travel and explore new places, and she was a Disneyland enthusiast. A lifelong learner, Meredith graduated from Liberty High School and attended Chapman University. Meredith always brought the fun and was full of surprises. She will be dearly missed by all,  including her brother Stan and his wife Kelli. She was an amazing aunt to Jake, Sam and Hailey and was so excited to welcome Sam’s wife  Sara and  great-nephew  Nolan to the family. She will be remembered affectionately by her large extended family and many wonderful friends. We will keep her memory strong and be inspired by her enthusiasm for life and thoughtfulness for others. A celebration of life will be held for Meredith on  Friday, Feb. 28,  at  11 a.m., at the Brentwood Community Center, 35 Oak St., Brentwood.  In honor of Meredith, we are pleased to announce the Meredith Nunn Farmer’s Daughter  Scholarship  benefitting local high school students. Donations may be directed to the Meredith Nunn Farmer’s Daughter Scholarship in care of the Local Scholarship Program, Liberty High School, 850 Second St., Brentwood, CA 94513.

Robert (Bob) James Barnett June 26, 1956 – Jan. 25, 2020 B o b Barnett, 63, passed away in his home after a heart attack on Jan. 25 in Brentwood. B o b was born in Oakland and raised in Livermore, where he graduated from Livermore High School. He later moved to Brentwood, which he called home for many years. He cared about those around him and was always willing to lend a helping hand. He loved cars (especially his Corvette), golfing, dinner with friends and neighbors and enjoying the finer things in life. Bob is survived by his sister, Roxanne Springer of Livermore; twin brother, Bill Barnett of Livermore; sister, Cindy Dee of Bend, Oregon; as well as five nieces and four nephews.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, Feb. 22, from 1 to 4 p.m., at Trilogy at the Vineyard, Club Los Meganos, 1700 Trilogy Parkway, in Brentwood. Flowers may be sent to Trilogy at the Vineyards for the service or donations can be made to the American Heart Association in honor of Bob at www2.heart.org/goto/bobbarnett.

OBITUARY Betty June Kifer Miller Sagert

June 25, 1929 – Jan. 7, 2020 Betty was born to Ethel Mae (McCormick) and James Theodore Kifer in the farm country of Holland, Missouri. At the age of 10, she lost her mother and then helped in raising her younger siblings, Letha Mae and James Cleveland, as her father tended the farm. They spent time living with her grandparents and many aunts and uncles. During WWII, her father took his children to Brentwood, where he worked as an essential farm worker. She graduated from Liberty High School, in Brentwood, at the age of 16, in 1946. Betty returned for a short stay in Missouri but returned to California, where she married Marion Lawrence (Larry) Miller in 1948. They lived in Richmond and Concord, where they raised their three children, Jerry, Judith and Michael. She was active at Trinity Baptist Church in Concord. She worked in retail sales and real estate. Betty loved the flowers in her garden. She planted

a bountiful apricot tree, which provided the fruit from which she made the best apricot pies throughout the years. When her children were grown, Betty and Larry divorced. The children all moved to Washington, so she bought a condo in Seattle. She missed sunny California, so she returned after two years. She settled in Summerset in Brentwood in 2000. She sang with the Summerset Singers and participated in bible studies and with the Red Hat Ladies. In 2010, she married Harold Sagert. They traveled to Michigan, Cancun and Florida and took a Panama Canal cruise. They bought a larger home in Summerset in 2011. Stroke damage to her memory limited her activities, but they shared their love and affection until the end. Betty is survived by her husband, Harold Sagert; her sister, Letha Hutchins; her daughter, Judith White; her sons, Jerry (Rosemarie) Miller and Michael (Barbara) Miller; four grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren; an uncle, Clarence Raymond Kifer (age 100); and many cousins. She was pre-deceased by her brother, James Kifer, who left two sons and their spouses and children. Betty was laid to rest Jan. 15, at Union Cemetery in Brentwood. A celebration of life will be held at 2 p.m., on Feb. 22, at the Summerset I Club House, 1675 Crispin Drive, in Brentwood. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to your favorite charity.

Editor: One of your articles, titled “Community rallies to support paralyzed Brentwood youth,” on your Jan. 24 issue, was a very inspiring piece. The strength that Samantha showed in facing her obstacles toward her recovery is something anybody can learn from. Her family’s support in her recovery phase was just as admirable. As a registered nurse with multiple experiences in dealing with life and death situations in critical care, I can assure you that the greatest strength is drawn from the love that the family provides to the patient especially when our loved

ones are going through a major lifechanging event. As a parent of two teenagers, I can only imagine (what) this family is going through. Their story is something each of our brethren can learn and draw an inspiration from. This unique infallible strength sourced out of love and dignity from each other is what makes this story very uplifting. Thank you for this story of love and perseverance. May your publication continue to write stories of love, compassion and human dignity. Felix Piamonte, BSN, RN, VA-BC Vascular Access Specialist Nurse University of California San Francisco

Basketball games unite East County schools by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer

The sounds of basketball and pure joy radiated from the Freedom High School gym and outdoor blacktop during a seemingly routine day last week. But what appeared to be normal games of basketball were actually unique moments in time that players, spectators and organizers said they will remember forever. About 20 local school teams converged on the Oakley campus as part of the Special Olympics’ Schools Partnership Program, uniting special- and general-education students around the spirited game. “This provides (special-education students) an opportunity to socialize and participate in a sporting event with generaleducation kids,” said Sherri Roberti, the Contra Costa County Office of Education’s (CCCOE) Special Olympics Schools Partnership Program coordinator. “It’s great for the general-education kids, too, because they get to be around the special-education kids and show them the love and compassion they deserve. There are really athletic people out here today.” The CCCOE and Special Olympics Northern California events immerse students in sports year-round at county school sites, providing inclusive opportunities through soccer, basketball and track and field. On this day, East County squads comprised of special- and general-education

A Freedom basketball player hoists up a shot during a Special Olympics Partnership program that united special- and general-education students at Freedom High School last week. students in elementary through unified high schools rotated courts as routine prep basketball game elements evolved. Heritage and Freedom high school squads raced up and down the court in a friendly, fast-paced affair, while Falcons cheerleaders, dance line and dance team members amped up the court’s stars. Spectators rooted loudly, and Freedom varsity basketball players officiated the contests — often throwing out the rules in favor of

uninterrupted fun. In turn, the participants thrived. One Heritage player, Nathan, took time away from shooting to push his wheelchair-bound teammate, Johnny, from basket to basket — at one point allowing him to score via a makeshift basket created with his arms. “I like pushing Johnny and shooting,” Nathan said. Fellow Patriot teammate, Nate, soaked

up the attention, proclaiming during a game break that he loved his coach and would rather play defense. On the sidelines, Freedom senior Kendall Beede helped run the event as she absorbed the experience, a manifestation of her passion for campus unity. Beede created a school leadership position dedicated to working with life-skills students to promote inclusivity on campus. “It gives them the opportunity to see what it’s like to be a general-education student, so they don’t feel like they are being excluded or anything,” she said of the event. “It gives them interaction with other students, and the ability to understand competition and be a team player. Fellow Freedom student Alexus Slaney, a dance line member, noted that she enjoyed the event’s unity. “My favorite part is that we are all together,” she said. “We don’t usually do stuff like this. We do basketball and football games, but it’s fun to see everyone from different schools — not just Freedom — come together to do something like this.” While the on-court superstars proved they are winners, many in attendance remarked that everyone left victorious. “I think we as spectators benefit more, because we get to see the smiles, enthusiasm and love for the game,” said Heritage coach and teacher Loren Wortinger. “It’s good for everybody.” To view a slideshow, visit www.thepress.net/ multimedia/slideshows

Liberty girls’ soccer team squeaks out victory over Heritage by Jesus Cano Correspondent

With Brentwood’s Heritage and Liberty girls’ soccer teams tied, the clock ticking down and missing a pair of shots on goal earlier in the match, Liberty’s Kaitlin Carlton was focused on dribbling down the field. It seemed that not even the aching cramps on her calves were going to stop her from what she was about to do. With less than three minutes left in the game, it seemed like the match between rivals Heritage and Liberty was going to finish in a scoreless draw. But Carlton made sure her right-foot shot would send the Lions off with a victory. “I had to redeem myself,” said Carlton. “We’ve been working so hard ever since we last played them. Seeing our hard work pay off as a team was really rewarding.” After receiving a through pass from

sophomore Madison Del Prado, Carlton looked up, caught Heritage goalkeeper Tory Morfin off her line and, from 25 yards out, sailed the ball into the back of the net for the late 1-0 victory over Heritage. The win solidified a clear path to the league title for Liberty, after a 5-0 victory over Antioch on Tuesday night, earning them a share of the title. “I knew that we would put our best foot forward,” said Liberty head coach Tony Martins. “It means a lot. It’s a rivalry. I’m very proud of our girls.” The Jan. 21 tie between these teams only fueled this rivalry even more. The fans showed up. For a Thursday night soccer match, there seemed to be more energy than at some football games played at Heritage High School this season. Heritage had its own viable opportunities. Kaya Scott sent a chip shot early in the game, but Liberty goalkeeper Kaelyn Adams

Liberty junior Hailey Brambley converges on the ball during the Lions’ 1-0 win over Heritage in a battle of the Bay Valley Athletic League’s top squads last week. — with textbook technique — tipped the ball away to preserve the tie. In the second half, Hailey Hamataka missed a wide-open shot. Adams recorded seven saves in her clean sheet, including a deflection right before the whistle blew. “It’s a honestly mental thing,” Adams

said about keeping calm in a close game. “Making sure I’m staying in my head the whole time, and making sure I’m doing my best to scan and read the field to better my teammates. They came in strong.” To view a video and a slideshow, visit www.thepress.net/multimedia

Name: Giovanni Maya School: Freedom High School Year: Senior Sport: Soccer Coach: Sal Acevedo Jr. About: When Giovanni Maya’s father put him in soccer as a young boy, no one knew where it would lead. Fast forward 14 years, and Maya is one of the top players on Freedom’s varsity boys’ soccer team. “It was mostly my dad who wanted me to play at first, and then I just kept playing every year,” Maya said. After a few years in a recreational league, Maya began to play competitively. He traveled for tournaments and worked on his game. Over time, his passion for the sport grew. “I love playing rough. I love talking to my teammates about how to play well and being there to help them out any way I can,” Maya said. “I just love the sport.” Maya said he loves the feeling he gets when walking onto the field and enjoys

cheering his teammates on from the sidelines as much as playing. Future Plans: Maya isn’t sure whether he will focus on his major or his sport in college. Currently, he has no Photo by Dawnmarie Fehr offers to play. He plans to become a dental hygienist. Coach’s Quote: “Gio is a leader on and off the field. As a captain, he understands his role and leads by example. On the field he is one of our top defenders. He is great at 1v1 defending and is very good defending balls in the air. His versatility allows him to easily adjust and play either center back or left back (he is left-footed). He is also an important part of our attack with his great dribbling, vision and passing skills. Gio is particularly dangerous on counter attacks due to his speed and agility.

Bay Valley Ravens help players in need After learning two dedicated players were facing circumstances that would limit their ability to play football, the community stepped up to fund scholarships. The Bay Valley Ravens, a sevenon-seven community football team, recently awarded Jackson Commins and Jordan Lee with scholarships for the upcoming football season. Ravens President Paul Gates noted Jackson, a Freedom High School junior, is a great athlete with an outstanding work ethic, who is known to always have a positive attitude and is dedicated and eager to learn. “Jackson is that football player that every coach wants to coach,” Gates said. Jordan Lee is another junior from Freedom High School. Lee was an allleague first team player as a junior. “Lee is always in the gym, lifting weights and doing drills in order to improve his skills during the offseason ... ”

The Bay Valley Ravens organization recently awarded scholarships to two of its players.

Gates said. “He is extremely hardworking and will not allow anything to stop him from reaching his goals.”

Both of these athletes wanted to be a part of the Ravens and grow as athletes, but due to unfortunate circumstances, Gates recently stated that they would be unable to be a part of the team this upcoming season. When community members heard both young men weren’t going to be able to be Ravens this season, they banded together to award them scholarships. “The local community and families knew and saw how much Jordan and Jackson wanted to be a part of this team and how deserving they were to be a part of it,” Gates said. “With the help of the community, the scholarships awarded to both Jackson and Jordan will help them better their futures in football.” The gesture is an extension of the Bay Valley Ravens’ organizational goals. The football team was created for

the community and surrounding city’s football players in order to successfully develop and improve their skills by competing in top tournaments locally and nationally. “We want the players to build character to help them become a better player and teammate, overcome adversity … and develop growth with their teammates and coaches,” Gates said. “The Bay Valley Ravens will continue to build a community base within and outside of the organization to help young men who are unable to receive opportunities to better their futures in football and in life. Our motto on and off the field is ‘together we get it done!’ Together as a community, a team and an organization, we can achieve anything.

IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash, cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, or savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state will be held by the duly appointed trustee as shown below, of all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by the trustee in the hereinafter described property under and pursuant to a Deed of Trust described below. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by the Deed of Trust, with interest and late charges thereon, as provided in the note(s), advances, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, interest thereon, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee for the total amount (at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale) reasonably estimated to be set forth below. The amount may be greater on the day of sale.

If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 730-2727 or visit this Internet Web site www. servicelinkASAP.com, using the file number assigned to this case 2019-01003. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site.

Ballot

Seen in India

Mike Crosby and Marsha Brown enjoyed a recent Rotary-sponsored trip to India to participate in India’s National Immunization Day activities with Rotarians from around the world. On Jan. 19, approximately 11 million children were immunized against polio in India. These photos were taken at Amer Fort in Amer, Rajasthan, near Jaipur, India.

Code

from page 1

tocao, a representative of Deer Ridge Golf Club, wrote in part “(Deer Ridge Golf Club) does not have funds to fence off the entire property at this time. However, it implemented a number of prudent measures to address public safety and help minimize blight, as well as to help secure the property from vandalism, vagrancy, and assorted criminal activity and other considerations. In particular, DRG installed visible barriers across key entry points. Signs warning of danger and reminding the public that the property is private and there should be no trespassing were also installed, although a number have been damaged or defaced.” Rarey noted that she’d like to see regulations amended to ensure that any wood exterior protection attached as a safety measure to any building be paint-matched to the building or that the city explore requiring other coverings. Additionally, she said the current warning signs must be affixed to a building or window, and the orange barriers should have gone through a formal design review prior to placement. She pointed out that the barriers are not aesthetically pleasing nor do they create a functional

relationship with the surrounding development or enhance the city’s appearance — all of which is required. “With fire access now blocked to the golf course by the orange barricades, they not only present a fire and safety hazard, but they also add blight to the neighborhood,” she said. Fellow city councilmember, Johnny Rodriguez, mentioned issues that exist beyond the course. “There have been people on the other side of the community as well who feel there are areas in that part of the community that the city hasn’t enforced for many years,” he said. Deer Ridge residents, many of whom pushed for change, applaud the council’s action. “This property (Deer Ridge Golf Club) is intimately intertwined with our community,” said resident Rod Flohr. “As such, great care should be taken not to allow this abandoned property to become a blight on our neighborhood.” No timetable has been set for city staff’s return to the council with recommendations.

William Martinek have thrown their hats into the ring. “I’m running for Congress to fight for our farmers, our families, our water, our health care, our commuters, our veterans and for the lives we all deserve,” wrote Martinek in his candidate statement. Currently holding the seat, McNerney is up for reelection. “I’m seeking reelection to continue delivering results that strengthen our economy for middle-class families, protect Medicare and Social Security, keep our children healthy and ensure a clean environment for future generations,” stated McNerney. Amador did not submit a statement. State At the state level, voters will choose a state senator and member of state assembly and vote yes or no on Proposition 13. On the ballot for state senator (District 7) are Steve Glazer, Marisol Rubio and Julie Mobley. Rubio, a health care provider, indicated health care, education and environmental protection to be among her key focal areas. “Now I am running for state senate and putting my insight and experience to work for everyone in our district because we can do better,” Rubio stated. As the current state senator, Glazer’s candidate page noted issues of importance to him, such as reducing gun violence and advocating for schools, working families, women, LGBTQ rights and the environment, among others. The sole candidate running for Member of State Assembly (District 11) is Jim Frazier, who is seeking reelection. Proposition 13 “authorizes bonds for facility repair, construction and modernization” at public schools ranging from preschools to universities. A vote of yes would allow the state to sell general obligation bonds in the amount of $15 billion to fund the modernization. This yes vote would also allow school districts and community colleges to issue local bonds, while placing limits on school districts to im-

pose developer fees. Those in favor of Proposition 13 argue it would improve state schools, remove harmful toxins present on campus and provide cleaner drinking water. Those in the opposition note that borrowing $15 billion is not only twice as expensive as paying for construction from the regular budget but that it will cost taxpayers $27 billion. To read more in depth on Proposition 13, visit https:// bit.ly/37h9sFL. County At the county level, those running for supervisor of District 3 are Paul Seger and Diane Burgis, who is seeking reelection. Measure J Contra Costa Transportation Authority is also on the ballot for the county. If approved, the measure will levy a half cent sales tax to be collected from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2055, for an estimated $103 million to go toward local transportation. Those in favor say the Contra Costa County residents need a reliable transit network, thus reducing congested highways. Opposition noted that the Contra Costa Transportation Authority already imposed a similar tax in 2004 without delivering on promises to ease traffic and emissions. To read more in depth on Measure J, visit https://bit.ly/2SmsWor. Schools Measure T for the Antioch Unified School District is another school modernization measure. A yes vote will allow the school district to issue $105 million in bonds at $7 million annually for 36 years. The favorable outlook for Measure T is that it will repair school facilities, improve safety, upgrade educational programs, all while leaving more money to attract and keep high-quality teachers. No opposing statement was issued. To read more in depth on Measure T, visit https://bit.ly/2SnaifS. Central committees A handful of interested candidates are running to the District 3 Central Committee, and voters will select four. Among them are Raymond Dapo Odunlami, Debra Vinson, Nichole Gardner, Thuy Daojensen, Tony Tiscareno and Warren Lutz. For more information on the upcoming election, visit https://bit. ly/2HkpGDM.
