Schools get uniform treatment by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

Last week’s Antioch Unified School District Board meeting briefly turned into “American Idol” as board member Wade Harper said, “With uniforms we won’t have to worry about ‘pants on the ground, pants on the ground, looking like a fool with your pants on the ground.’” The school board voted 4-0 (Teri Lynn Shaw was absent) to require students in all of the district’s schools, including high school, to wear uniforms unless they sign a form opting out of the requirement. Board members hope the wearing of uniforms will help instill a more professional attitude in students, reduce violence, particularly that involving gangs, and make it easier to identify outsiders on campus. Committees are forming at the high schools to discuss how best to implement the new policy and what the uniforms should look like. Uniforms could be in effect six months after the committees provide their recommendations to the board,

While implementation of uniforms has been largely successful in many of the district’s elementary schools and to a lesser degree in middle schools, it could become problematic at the high school level.

Surveys of parents at Antioch and Deer Valley high schools showed slight majorities against uniforms. And most of the parents and students in the packed boardroom on Feb. 26 argued against adopting high school uniforms. Lisa Hunt, whose daughter at-

tends Dallas Ranch Middle School, said she can see a purpose in having uniforms in the younger grades, “but to implement this to high school is almost trying to retard our children’s growth. We expect them to make mature decisions and are grooming them to make choices. There’s already a dress code in place. They need to follow those rules. We have to allow them the freedom to grow.” Her daughter, Madison, agreed, saying she opposes uniforms “because we wouldn’t be able to think for ourselves and would be told what to do. If we are forcing kids to wear uniforms they will rebel, which would cause fights or maybe mouthing off to teachers. I really don’t want that to happen.” Antioch High senior Cassie McGrath told the board that uniforms would take away individuality and self-expression. She added that uniforms would not solve the “pants on the ground” problem because some boys “will sag their

Public turns out for 2-Gates update by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer The Discovery Bay group working to stop the construction of the controversial 2-Gates Project has stated that while substantial progress has been made in the fight over what many feel is the precursor to a peripheral canal, the real work is still ahead. “They said we couldn’t go up against Goliath. Well, guess what: (we did) and we made a difference,” said Karen Mann, vice chair of the Save the California Delta Alliance (STCDA). “We hope you’ll stick with us, because we are not done yet.” That was message from the grassroots organization – formerly the San Francisco Bay and Delta

General information on the challenges facing the Delta waterways in the coming years was also touched upon.

Musician chases dream in Atlanta by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Tony Allen spent six hours in Atlanta waiting for a 90second audition. Armed with his guitar and a soulful voice, the Brentwood resident traveled more than 2,000 miles for his chance at a big break by trying out for a spot on “America’s Got Talent.” But Allen isn’t a starry-eyed 20-something who just wants to be on TV. He has been dreaming of a music career all his life, and now at age 45, has decided it’s time to pursue that dream and make it a reality. “I’ve always excelled at music,” said Allen, who taught himself how to play guitar, keyboard and saxophone. “It’s my passion, but I didn’t want to put any unneeded stress on my marriage or neglect my family so I could spend hours traveling here and there trying to get my foot in the door. Family comes first, so I put my dreams on hold. But now I’m ready and my family is on board, so we’ll see what happens.” Teresa, Allen’s wife of 23 years, said music has always been a big part of their lives and she and their seven children support his musical ambitions. “We’re all excited and proud of him. Tony is pretty reserved and kinda shy, so he really stepped out of his box to do this audition. He’s never done anything like this before. So many people try to get into the music business to be famous, but that’s not what it’s about for us. Music is at Tony’s core. That’s just who he is.” Allen’s father, Bobby Allen, released two hit singles with Dot Records in the late ’60s but his career failed to take off after a few poor business decisions. Allen said his father has always regretted being unable to return to the limelight, so Allen hopes to become a success to live out his father’s dream. “If I get called to go to Hollywood (for a second audition), I want my dad with me,” Allen said. “He’s always urged me to get into the music business. He’s been telling me all my

life that I’m supposed to share my music with the world, and now I think it’s my time. I’d like him to be there with me if I make it on the show.” “America’s Got Talent” is a reality competition that airs each summer on NBC, featuring the artistry of not only singers, but dancers, jugglers, comedians and others. Allen, who works in telecommunications as a computer systems manager, participated last month in the initial screening audition process in which he went before a panel of four judges who recorded his performance and took notes. He won’t know until later this month if he’ll be called to perform for judges Howie Mandel, Sharon Osborn and Piers Morgan in the next round of auditions. The top 48 contestants will perform before a live studio audience and eventually that group will be reduced to a cast of 10. America will decide who will take the top prize of $1 million and a gig headlining a show on the Las Vegas strip. Allen said he felt good about his audition and is anxiously waiting to hear back from the show. “I was nervous the whole time, but once I got into that room and they called me forward, I went into the zone,” Allen said. “It was almost an out-of-body experience. I gave it my all, and when I was done, the facilitator said, ‘Wow, that was great. Thank you.’ But it wasn’t the ‘thanks for coming’ kind of thank-you. It was more of a ‘thank you for sharing this gift with us.’ Other people who auditioned in my group didn’t get that type of response.” Allen performed a rendition of The Eagles’ classic “Desperado.” His father suggested doing an Eagles song, and his vocal coach said “Desperado” was a good choice, but Allen wasn’t sure if it was the right audition piece. He wanted to sing a song about a father and son to illustrate how he was following his dream and trying to live out his father’s dream as well. “I just couldn’t get a feel for the song,” Allen said. “But I see Dream page 15A

Supervisors give devil mountain its due by Dave Roberts Staff Writer County supervisors last week unanimously opposed a request by Oakley resident Arthur Mijares to change the name of Mt. Diablo to Mt. Reagan. Mijares believes that naming the county’s most prominent geographic feature after the devil (“diablo” is Spanish for devil) is offensive to Christians. The supervisors cited three reasons for opposing the name change: large public support for keeping the name as is, the historical significance of the name and the costs to the numerous schools, businesses, organizations and agencies containing the name “Diablo,” which might then feel the need to change it. The supervisors weighed in on the matter at the request of the U.S. Board on Geographic Names (USBGN), which Mijares has petitioned to officially change the mountain’s name. Last June USBGN had asked the supervisors for their recommendation on Mijares’ petition. But the supervisors ignored the request until USBGN sent a follow-up letter in January, saying it would assume the supervisors are neutral on the matter if they don’t hear from them by March 31. The supervisors also opposed Mijares’ request in 2005 to rename the mountain Mt. Kawakum or Mt. Yahweh. The USBGN also rejected those names as well as calling it Mt. Miwok or Mt. Ohlone. Mijares had also asked at that time for the USBGN to consider renaming it Mt. Reagan, but was told that former President Ronald Reagan, who died June 5, 2004, would have to be dead five years before that name could be considered. The five years having passed last June, Mijares submitted a new petition to USBGN to change the name to Mt. Reagan. Name change requests can be based on

the historical name being considered offensive. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has requested that Negrohead Mountain (which the USBGN had previously changed from its racially pejorative variation) be renamed to Ballard Mountain (an African-American pioneer who lived on the mountain) because the supervisors believe the name Negrohead Mountain has become derogatory. Mijares uses similar reasoning to justify his request to remove the devil from the mountain’s name, which he as a Christian considers derogatory. “I am a follower of Jesus Christ,” Mijares told the supervisors on Feb. 23. “The devil, for whom the mountain is incorrectly named, is the challenger of Jesus and his followers. To me and millions of other followers of the Christian faith the devil is derogatory, pejorative, offensive, obscene, blasphemous and profane.” To support his claim, Mijares cited a report from General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo to the state legislature in 1850 concerning the Constitutional Convention discussion on what to call this county. The name “Mt. Diablo County” was proposed, Vallejo’s report states, “but both branches of the Legislature, after warm debate on the subject, resolved upon the less-profane (name) of Contra Costa.” Mijares also believes the mountain’s name is inaccurate because it’s based on Vallejo’s story of Spanish soldiers chasing Native Americans who took cover in a thicket near Pacheco and escaped during the night across the Carquinez Strait. The soldiers said the Indians must have had help from the devil and dubbed the thicket Monte del Diablo. American settlers, believing “monte” referred to the mountain, recorded see Mountain page 12A

Cancer survivors take to the track during last year’s Relay For Life in Brentwood.

Press file photo

Relay – cause for celebration by Samie Hartley Staff Writer No matter where or when a Relay For Life event takes place, it always starts the same way. People dressed in purple shirts linked arms wearing big smiles and wave to the crowd of hundreds as they make their way around the track. In addition to the shirts and facial expressions, the walkers share one other thing in common: they are cancer survivors. The Survivors Lap is one of the most touching moments of the 24-hour event, as it summarizes in one lap what Relay For Life is all about: fighting cancer so that more people battling cancer may join the purple-shirt crew

the following year and the year after that until a cure is found. While cancer is often associated with pain and loss, the Survivors Lap is a moment to celebrate those who have battled the disease and have emerged victorious. Sue Owens and Donna Coker are cocaptains for the Summerset Originals team, which has raised more than $65,000 for the American Cancer Society since Relay For Life came to Brentwood in 2005. Neither has contracted cancer, but both look forward to the Relay celebration each year. “Relay is a celebration of birthdays,” Owens explained. “It’s a celebration for those who still have birthdays and those who won’t

see anymore. We celebrate their journey and honor their courage. Relay For Life is about hope, and even though we’ve lost so many, when you see the survivors kick off the event with the Survivors Lap, you see the smiles of those who are still with us – some of them who have been cancer-free for years, and it gives you hope. It reminds you why you’re there.” The Relay’s celebratory theme isn’t just about the survivors. It’s also about the community coming together for a charitable cause. According to Owens, Relay is like a carnival, featuring great food, activities for the children, booths to shop at and plenty of people to talk see Cause page 15A

Hiking cohorts wanted – dead or alive I can’t say exactly when it began, this passion for walking among the trees, but I can say exactly where: the pine forests of Wisconsin. I’m told I was barely able to walk a trail booby-trapped with rocks and tree roots without falling on my face when my parents TAKE IT dubbed me dangerous. If they weren’t UTSIDE alert, I’d be gone, wandering off into the forest behind a cabin or campsite, just checking out the scenery. My Uncle Elmer put a more genial spin on it. He GER dubbed me Captain ERICKSON of the North Woods. In “A Walk in the Woods,” Bill Bryson observed that trees “choke off views and leave you muddled and without bearings. They make you feel small and confused and vulnerable, like a small child lost in a crowd of strange legs.” I imagine that’s true for some. For me, trees don’t choke off views – they are the view. They exude warmth and protection. I don’t grudgingly run their gauntlet in order to get to my destination. They are the destination. If stratospheric redwoods, svelte aspens and spidery manzanitas are part of the attraction of the trek, a certain subset of them is the greatest attraction

of all – dead ones. That’s right: trees keeled over from disease or blasted to shards by lightning are some of my most treasured hiking buddies. Anchored in the landscape like historical markers, Rhino, Croc, Oliphaunt and Limbo Man wait with wry detachment as I trudge up the hillside to pay my respects. I go out of my

way to check on the progress of Dragon, Hog, Taro Dactyl and Cyclops’ decomposition. The twisted intimate I call Knight (as in the chess piece) recently lost his snout to the force of gravity. Dead trees provide more than habitat for lichens, mosses and lizards; they provide ignition for the engine of imagina-

tion: “We don’t see things as they are; we see things as we are,“ wrote Anais Nin. I’m not sure I want to know what my metaphors for dead trees betray about my state of mind, but I know this: my gnarly friends mean a lot to me. They provide see Outside page 7A

Outside from page 6A a glimmer of companionship amid the solitude of the trail. Make no mistake: the solitude is good. On the trail I escape the noise of communal life and enter, as Thomas Mann put it, the “mental experiences that are at once more intense and less articulate than those of a gregarious man.” Gregariousness can be jarring. Who wants to hear campers and hikers hootin’ and hollerin’ by the placid grandeur of Shasta Lake, or on Prospector’s Gap overlooking the fog-flooded hollows of Morgan Territory in the pale violet of sunrise, or, come to think of it … anywhere? No, the silence of trees – especially dead ones – makes for good company. My first encounter with Dragon on a creepy moonlit night in Kettle Moraine, Wisconsin began in dread and ended in mirth. A 60-foot pin oak toppled parallel to a path snaking through a dark ravine, Dragon has been smithied by years of wind, ice and rot into a giant reptile. At our first meeting, his uncannily symmetric ears, razor horns and sunken eye sockets stopped me in my tracks. Only after gathering the gumption to tiptoe over and check him out did I breathe a sigh of comic relief. Taro Dactyl is another matter, and no laughing one. The victim of inept air traffic control, the pterosaur was evidently rerouted from the skies of the late Mesozoic to an emergency-landing site just northeast of present-day Mt.

microorganisms. The image of a dead tree touches a nerve. It’s a statue on exhibit, yet unlike the statues fashioned by human hands, it was once alive. Suddenly the trail becomes a graveyard where the bones of the departed aren’t buried but put on display. A dead tree is disturbing in another way: Trees are assumed to represent the gold standard for longevity. From its vista atop the White Mountains of Inyo National Forest, a bristlecone pine named Methuselah has felt the rain lash and the wind scour its branches, has watched impassively as the winter stars inched overhead, for 4,775 years. Some trees will go on living into the next Ice Age, long after the human race has abandoned the planet. Or vice versa. Yet a tree, like the mammal we imagine it mimics, is decidedly mortal. Its transfiguration might take a century to complete, but the end is the same for all organic creatures. Today we marvel at the fluky artistry that makes a monster out of dead wood. In a decade the nutrient cycle, aided by weather’s dull chisel, will have sculpted the carcass into something else. Pterodactyl becomes nondescript fractal. In a century even the wood will be gone, digested like flesh into the shrewd economy of Earth. How readily in this voracious universe does food for thought become food for worms.

INSOLVENCY EXCLUSION TO 1099 PROBLEM First, let me disclose that I am not a tax expert, and that you should consult with a tax expert for specifics to your situation. We’ve talked about “phantom income” before in this column. This is where the IRS may determine that you have taxable income because of a debt you owed that was forgiven. This may apply after a short sale, foreclosure, or even a loan modification if they reduce your principal balance. Most of my clients get pretty concerned about this issue until they find out that there is an exclusion if you are insolvent. Most people going through a short sale or foreclosure are insolvent, so that usually gets them off the hook for the 1099 problem. I was listening to a mortgage radio talk show the other day, and the host was interviewing a tax expert on this topic. The expert went over the insolvency exclusion, and the host just wasn’t understanding the point. They kept asking about income, payments, option-ARM payments, modified trial payments, etc. to try to figure out

insolvency. Finally the tax expert got a bit frustrated and said, “Stop talking about income and payments! Insolvency is about ASSETS and LIABILITIES only.” At that the host “got it.” When you apply for a short sale or loan modification, your payments vs. your income will be part of the “hardship” you are claiming. When it comes to the 1099 issue, what’s important is your assets vs. liabilities. [See IRS publication 4681 for more info.] Exception: I did hear one tax expert argue that you could have a case where someone’s liabilities do exceed their assets, but if they get a monstrous monthly income, from a trust fund, for example, that isn’t listed as an “asset” the IRS may not agree that they are truly insolvent.

The Village Community Resource Center’s Ballet Folklorico dancers, seen here performing at Garin Elementary School, will perform at the Brentwood Diversity Committee’s C.H.I.L.D. event on April 10.

by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Gloria Hartsough knows that true “diversity” goes beyond the dictionary definition emphasizing “inclusion.” “It is also about acknowledging our differences and celebrating them,” said Hartsough, a member of the Brentwood Diversity Committee (BDC). “It’s a fact that if kids start playing with each other and interacting at an early age, then they grow up to view things that are different from a natural and positive perspective.” The Brentwood Diversity Committee, along with the City of Brentwood, Brentwood Union School District and Liberty Union High School District, will embrace those differences in April at the Celebrating Heritage Is Living Diversity (C.H.I.L.D.) event at Brentwood Elementary School. The free public event was made possible through a $5,000 grant from First Five Contra Costa County – an organization dedicated to early childhood development – and will highlight, herald and honor children of all backgrounds with a day of music, entertainment and food. Brentwood restaurants including Grazie! and Pho Vietnam will offer samples of their cuisine as a way of exposing attendees to diverse cultures. Local childcare centers are also participating – bringing in arts and crafts and games that emphasize

cultural diversity, and the Brentwood Library is partnering with C.H.I.L.D. coordinators to recruit local storytellers from a variety of backgrounds and ethnicities. “I think this is just an opportunity for very young children to see how much fun new and different things can be,” said Desty Shoemaker, C.H.I.L.D. event coordinator and BDC member. “It’s our ultimate goal (at the BDC) to take a proactive approach to diversity, and this is a great example of that.” In preparation for the event, local high school students are researching a variety of influential Americans such as Cesar Chavez and Martin Luther King, Jr., whose stories and accomplishments will be highlighted in a cultural display at the

C.H.I.L.D. event. Ethnic dances, including a performance by Village Community Resource Center’s Ballet Folklorico, will round out the entertainment. Local dignitaries including Supervisor Mary Piepho, Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor and the Brentwood Council have been invited to the event. The city will also present a proclamation to the BDC declaring the day of the C.H.I.L.D. event “Brentwood Child Diversity Day.” The C.H.I.L.D. event will be held Saturday, April 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Brentwood Elementary School, 200 Griffith Lane.

NECK PAIN AND PINCHED NERVES “I woke up yesterday morning with severe neck pain that radiates down my right arm to my hand and I can barely move my neck without producing the shooting arm pain.” Or, “…for the last few months, I’ve had this nagging pain in my neck and when I look up, my arm goes numb.” Or, “Every time I bend my head to the left, my left arm goes numb. I’ve noticed when I lift weights, I can only curl 15 lbs with my left arm compared to 35 lbs with the right.” These are common histories describing a classic “pinched nerve in the neck.” So, what is a “pinched nerve?” To answer this, let’s first look at what a “nerve” is. In the diagram to the left, the nerves come off the spinal cord. Those in the neck region go down the arm and those in the low back go down the legs. The spinal cord is the “highway” that brings information from the nerves in the arms, legs, trunk, etc., to the brain where information is processed. The bony spine houses and protects the spinal cord and skull protects the brain but there is no bony protection for the nerves. Nerves bring information to the brain allowing us to feel, taste, smell, see, and move our legs and arms to perform complex movements like dancing, running, gymnastics, and so on. Information is constantly going to and from the brain to allow us to function normally. The nerve can get “pinched” anywhere along its course, including the wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome), elbow (cubital tunnel syndrome), shoulder (thoracic outlet syndrome), and/or neck (herniated disk and/or arthritis). This results in a slowing down of information transmission to/from the brain and numbness, pain, throbbing, as well as weakness in strength can occur.

There are two types of conditions that commonly pinch nerves, which generally occur at different times of life – those with a herniated disk (younger > older patients) and those with arthritis (older > younger patients). A combination of the two conditions producing the pinching effect on the nerve can also occur making the diagnosis process a little trickier. The following diagram helps explain these conditions: The nerves exit the spine through holes that can be narrowed if the jelly central part of the disk herniates outward and into the nerve pushing it against the bone that makes up the hole through which it exits the spine. A “bone spur” (as shown in the diagram to the left, coming off the left facet joint) pushing into the nerve or the thickening of the ligaments that run inside the spinal canal (eg., ligamentum flavum) can also crowd these sensitive nerve structures and cause similar symptoms.

Both of these conditions are commonly treated by chiropractors. If you, a family member or a friend requires care, we sincerely appreciate the trust and confidence shown by choosing our service. We are proud that chiropractic care has consistently scored the highest level of satisfaction when compared to other forms of health care provision and look forward in serving you and your family presently and in the future.

Mountain from page 4A its name as Mount Diablo on land maps. Two other speakers supported changing the mountain’s name, but not to Mt. Reagan. Benjamin Medel, a Miwok descendant, said that the derogatory, profane name of the devil is in a sense appropriate because it reflects the derogatory, profane treatment by white settlers and the state and federal government of Native Americans. “Early citizens would bring the heads of our people to California’s government and be paid for it,” he said. “The devil is characteristic of a murderer and liar come to kill and destroy.” The name should be changed to a Native American word that means “purpose blessing,” he said. It sounds something like “chubweyah.” Robert Ericson asked the supervisors to change the name to Mt. John Muir to honor the environmentalist who championed Yosemite and lived in Martinez. Ericson criticized the “genocidal root of the Mt. Diablo name. It was a rallying cry (against native Americans) to ‘go get those devils.’ This is so similar to the genocide of the Jews. Similar techniques were done.” He said that the mountain was sacred to the Miwoks, and putting the devil’s name on it is akin to spray-painting “Satan’s worshiping place” on a church or synagogue. He suggested placing the issue on the ballot with several name choices for voters. Two people spoke in favor of keeping the name as it is. Joann Hull of Concord said the name reflects the history of the area, noted that many streets, hospitals and schools are named after it and that a

large majority of county residents is against changing the name. Roland Gaebert, a state park superintendent, cited similar reasons for keeping the name. The supervisors agreed with the last two speakers, but several thanked Medel for the history lesson, as unpleasant as it might be. Supervisor Mary Piepho was peeved, however, that the board and county staff have spent time considering the matter when the county is facing an ongoing budget crisis. “Unfortunately, we are having really difficult times in local government,” she said. “And, frankly, enough is enough. We are going to hear shortly about deep, critical budget cuts and the lack of services that we are going to be able to provide to our community members. So, for all due respect to your passion and emotion, we have our hands full already. Our county staff has spent hours and hours and hours on this (name change) issue. “It is very important in the big picture. But when you are talking of losing local services from police to fire to district attorney coverage, it is minimal. We can’t afford it. We have better things to do with our limited time and ability and resources. The cost of these actions to local government is significant. I’m hopeful that we can put an end to the discussion and get moving on more critical issues before this board.” Supervisor John Gioia pointed out that the supervisors’ vote to retain the name is only a recommendation and the USBGN will make the ultimate decision.

District should cut wages across the board by Mark Schwartz Oakley Recently the administrative staff of the Liberty Union High School District held a meeting at Freedom High School to discuss trimming $3.8 million from the UEST school’s operatOMMMENT ing budget for the 2010-11 school year. The purpose of the meeting was to inform the public of proposed items that could be cut, take comments pertaining to those cuts and suggestions for other possible actions. To date nothing has been decided. One proposal is to move the areas serviced by school buses farther away from the schools, forcing more students to have to walk to school. Not a bad idea considering America’s fight with childhood obesity; however, what message is being sent when another proposal is to sell naming rights of school buildings? Walk to school, take your health and nutrition class in the McFast Food Building. Another proposal is a 20-percent bus fare increase. Children who qualify for free busing will not be impacted; however, consider the impact on the paying ridership. With car pools and teenage drivers, those left to take the bus are likely from families on the brink of poverty; one-car families. A 20-percent hike may force those families

over the brink. Yet another proposal is to recover lost revenue by imposing a parcel tax. Apparently the district has not noticed soaring unemployment, numerous foreclosed and pending foreclosure homes. The district is not alone in facing financial hard times. A voter approval of a parcel tax in such pressing hard times? Get real! Perhaps these and many of the other ludicrous proposals are merely a smoke screen to make us believe that all other options were considered, when the actual goal is to trim $3.8 million from the budget through layoffs. The administration continuously stated these cuts are needed because the state is not sending enough money. There is no magic money tree in Sacramento. State money is our money, collected from state levied taxes and fees. The district spends our money to educate our children in a safe healthy environment. When cuts are needed, utmost care should be taken to protect that mission. Each layoff, from classroom teacher to maintenance, administrator to secretary, weakens the district’s ability to provide a safe, healthy learning environment. It is apparent that the district is more concerned with spending our money on themselves rather than on our children. To be fair, the proposed layoffs seem to be evenly spread out among administrative, classified and non-classified staff; however,

there still seems to be no regard for the impact these layoffs will have on the community that provides tax dollars to the district. Layoffs mean increased class size, canceled programs, reduced availability of after-school activities, dirty campuses and neglected repairs leading to unsafe conditions. The district is one of the region’s largest employers; many of the employees live within the district. The trickle-down effect is predictable. How many more foreclosures can we absorb; can local businesses already struggling with a poor economy afford to lose more customers; and will crime increase as poverty impacts more families and the children of these families lose access to after school programs? Layoffs are inevitable; however, the district is not going far enough to preserve jobs. These are extraordinary times but it is not too much to demand extraordinary measures be taken to preserve as much of our stellar school system as possible. Now is the time for our elected school board members to stand up and take a leadership role in protecting the high standards of education we expect. In the 2008-09 school year the district spent $42,093,827 in salaries and benefits, not including the salaries and benefits of administration. Adding in the administrative salaries and benefits, an across-the-board pay cut of just over 7 percent would cover the entire $3.8 million, no jobs lost and no pro-

Willy’s Bagels (we are really lacking on bagels up here!). The one Brentwood constant that I can rely on weekly is thepress.net. I love catching up on what is going on in our old town. With all the bad news and evilness that families are having to put up with, I am glad when Vicki McKenna’s column comes out. Her columns are realistic and relatable. It is nice to step away from the craziness that goes on and read her column. I just want to thank you for having her as a columnist for the Press. Keep up the great job! Joanne Flynn Buckley, Wash.

Teachers deserve better Editor: I was one of the couple hundred people who attended the recent Brentwood school board meeting. I could see a lot of angry and defeated faces in the crowd. As a parent, I can’t do much for the staff of the Brentwood district other than tell you all that you are appreciated. My two children attend Brentwood Elementary and I have only praise for the teachers my children have encountered. Teresa Rodriguez is a first-grade teacher and she is fantastic. She not only

grams cut. District employees would have to tighten their belts, but who in our community has been exempt from belt tightening? It is not realistic to suggest a 7 percent pay cut, but is 3 or 3½ percent unreasonable? This is our money being spent. Every job saved means a better education for our children and goes a long way to prevent the trickle-down effects a layoff can have on our community. Yes, the district has contracts with its unions, but if all parties agree to a pay cut, what would stand in the way of implementing a paycut? In these hard times, workers in private industry across America have agreed to pay cuts to save their jobs and the companies they work for. Until across-the-board pay cuts are on the table, our communities should not feel as if the school district and our elected representatives are doing everything they can to provide our children with an education in a safe, healthy environment. School districts get their funding based on daily attendance. Our district needs to be reminded that bargaining units are not the only ones who can strike. Parents can strike by keeping their children home until the district does everything possible to spend our tax dollars on our children, and that includes putting across-the-board pay cuts on the table. Mark Schwartz is a former Liberty Union High School District trustee. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

dedicates herself in her classroom, but she is a regular fixture at off-site and after-hours functions. She is always one of the first to volunteer to help out the Parents Club. She also takes on extra duties, like keeping groups of kids after school, on her own time, to help with reading. She doesn’t do this for extra pay but because the kids need the help. She is wonderful and I feel so lucky that both of my kids have journeyed through first grade with her. Kate Ghilarducci is a tremendous fourth-grade teacher. She has created a safe and structured environment that allows her students to shine while keeping parents in the loop. She has been able to challenge students while allowing them to have fun through learning. My daughter has flourished academically in her class and loves to go to school. I pray that she will be around to handle my younger daughter as she reaches the fourth grade. My kids have had other excellent teachers in the past as well. Mrs. Boden is hands-down the best kindergarten teacher on earth. Mrs. Macedo, Mrs. Peltz and Mrs. Redman have also poured their time, energy and knowledge into my

kids. I can’t find the words to express my gratitude for their hard work. But I will try. I just hope the Brentwood district administration will try a little harder to do the same. Heather Partida Brentwood

Marvelous Maiocco Editor: On behalf of John Muir Health, I would like to congratulate Dr. Hugh Maiocco on his retirement and more than 50 years of service to the community. We will certainly miss him, as I know his patients will as well. He is a tremendous physician, but an even better person. We also owe him a debt of gratitude for helping to establish John Muir Medical Group in Brentwood. We are about to celebrate our 10th anniversary in Brentwood and our 5th year in the John Muir Health Outpatient Center. Dr. Maiocco helped us start with just a few physicians and now we offer the community nearly a dozen physicians, who practice family medicine, internal medicine and pediatrics. see Letters page 17A

two months earlier through MySpace and had met in person only twice.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Interest only- Not any more Growing up as kid I remember biking from friend’s house to friend’s house, neighborhood to neighborhood, following the afternoon game of pickup baseball wherever it might lead. “Please, Mom, can I stay out until dark?” was the going theme throughout the summer months. Times have changed and although I’m sure the questions have been modernized, “please, Mom, can I have a cell phone?” I’m also sure the answer, as well as the lesson, remains the same. You see, my Mom always let me stay out until dark…until I showed up late, and I’m sure you as a parent in 2010 bought your kid that cell phone…until the first texting bill came in. Bottom line, we’re always given the opportunity to be responsible right up until we’re not. In the banking world this is no different, and thanks to a 17.6% default rate for all interest only loans held in Freddie Mac’s portfolio, Freddie Mac will no longer offer interest only loans after September 2010. According to a Freddie Mac representative the decision is one based on cause and effect; “continuing poor performance of these products…These types of loans have experienced higher delinquency rates than other mortgage products.” For these reasons Freddie Mac hopes to once again be the front runner for change in an effort “to promote responsible

lending and sustainable homeownership.” Historically where Freddie goes Fannie follows so don’t be surprised if interest only loans become a thing of the past – across the board – for quite some time. This is sad because when used by responsible individual(s) – investors looking to flip a property or a homeowner who plans on, and has the means to, pay off their home in a lump sum in the future – an interest only loan can be a great tool. It allows them to increase their immediate cash flow as principal is not included in the payment for a set period of time, be it thirty-six, sixty, or one hundred and twenty months. Although Freddie Mac has set a September 2010 “drop dead date” there is no doubt in my mind that lending institutions will begin implementing the change way before that time. So, as I reflect on a final baseball based childhood memory, I find myself with a closing piece of advice: I suggest anyone interested in acquiring an interest only mortgage act now. Either that, or as eloquently put by Michael Squints, be banned to the junk yard “for-ever, for-ever” like “the beast” in the timeless movie The Sandlot. 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 at 925-726-1444. – Advertisement

Illuminating the fight against cancer Editor: For many people who attend Relay For Life, one of the most moving parts of the event is the Ceremony of Hope. As the light dims over campsites and team members complete laps, the night is brightened by the glow of lighted bags called luminaria, each of which has a special meaning. Some luminaria celebrate the survivorship of people who have battled cancer and lived to tell the tale. Many commemorate the lives of those who have been lost to this disease. All represent a person who has been profoundly affected by cancer and the family and friends who continue to be touched by that experience. You too can help spread the light of hope and honor or remember those in

THEPRESS.NET

your life who have been touched by this disease. Please light a candle in honor of or in memory of a friend or loved one who has had cancer. You can honor a cancer survivor by placing their name under “In Honor of ” or you can remember someone who was lost to cancer by placing the name under “In Memory of.” Each individual’s name will appear on a luminaria and each will be lit at the ceremony to shine as a beacon of hope for others. You also have the option to send an e-card to inform family members and friends of your special gift. Your contribution will help save lives, give hope and empower people through the American Cancer Society and its lifesaving mission. This year we will be listing all of the names of the honorees on a memorial scroll during the luminaria ceremony. We will also be giving you the opportunity to add a picture to the honor scroll. There are two ways to purchase the luminaria for the Oakley Relay for Life. Come to one of our decorating nights to purchase and decorate your luminaria bag. We will be offering these nights every month through April at 7:15 at Gehringer Elementary School: March 8, April 12 and April 26. You will also be able to purchase and decorate your luminaria at the Relay event on May 1 at Freedom High School. Thank you for participating in the Oakley Relay for Life and for your support.

It’s a Matter of Law By Amy Alvis & Barbara A. Frantz

WHAT HAPPENS TO MY FACEBOOK, EMAIL, WEBSITE WHEN I DIE? When we think about estate planning, we immediately think about how our wills and trusts will protect our physical possessions. But what about your email, blog, Facebook, online dating membership, or even your business web site? All of these accounts have user i.d.’s and passwords or “digital property and identity”. Does anyone else know this information or at least where you store it the event of your incapacity or death? It is not always easy for someone to just call up Google and ask them to close out an email account. Many internet providers consider this information to be private and will not just send you the passwords without legal authority. Websites are another issue you may have to consider. If your website is revenue generating, you would certainly want to be sure this valuable asset is properly left to your survivors. So what’s the solution? First: Keep a file of all your log-in information on a flash drive or stored on your computer somewhere but name the file something unique... not “passwords”. Give a copy of this to a trusted individual. Be sure to provide updated information to this person about every six months. If you prefer not to give this file to anyone else, keep it in a safe or safe deposit box, but ONLY if you let someone else know it exists, where to find it, and how to gain

access to it. Second: Obtain the proper estate planning documents and be sure they are specifically drafted to provide for the power to both access your digital property and identity in the event of your incapacity, but also to pass it on to your survivors after you die. There are web based companies out there which act like a safe deposit box for your digital property and identity as well as companies that provide virtual “legacies” leaving your digital property to a named beneficiary along with personalized instructions to them as to how you want your online identity and property handled. So as you can see, estate planning has a variety of new issues to consider when planning, so meeting with a trust and estate attorney who is current on the latest web based media will put your estate plan one step ahead of the rest. If your current plan does not offer this protection for you or for more information call Amy Alvis, Esq. at Alvis Frantz and Associates PLC (925) 5161617, www.AlvisFrantzLaw.com or email: info@alvisfrantzlaw.com Disclaimer: This information is not intended to be legal advice and is for general information only.

Oakley Y set to close; playground still in works by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer The Delta Family YMCA in Oakley will be closing its doors at the end of month, but plans for a Special Kids all-abilities playground at the O’Hara Avenue site remain intact. “We’re sorry to see this happening to the YMCA, but Special Kids is not going anywhere,” said Lisa McBride, founder of the Special Kids Foundation. “We were partnered on that piece of land with the YMCA to build the playground and I’m very confident that the City of Oakley will stand with us. The need is great and we will get it built.” YMCA officials announced last week that a continued downturn in the economy and a drying up of donations has caused the organization to close its Oakley and Clayton sites. Plans for an expansion at the San Ramon facility has also been shelved, but the

Uniform from page 1A uniforms. It’s a pop culture thing. We go off what we see on TV and the magazines. In high school you should be able to dress yourself the way you want to.” But one Antioch resident, Maryjane Carsten, argued in favor of uniforms, saying they would help prevent gang violence like the Deer Valley student who was shot last fall after being mistaken for a gang member. They would also save money on clothes purchases and provide students with more respect for education, she said, adding, “School is about learning, not fashion.” After 10 more parents and students

2-Gates from page 1A Nesmith and Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla of Restore the Delta also spoke during the presentation, offering their support and recommendations for preserving both the rights and future of the southern Delta province. “The Delta is the hub of the largest water system in the world,” said Schlendorf. “If this were happening to Lake Tahoe or Big Sur, people would not put up with that … You cannot stop your efforts.” The 2-Gates project, a five-year experimental program designed to save the Delta

Pleasant Hill location will remain open. Repeated calls to the YMCA’s public relations company, Trainer Communications, were not returned. News of the closure of East County’s only YMCA came as a surprise to Oakley’s leaders, who only six months ago had reached their community fundraising goal of $400,000 for the construction of a new facility on the 6-acre parcel owned by the city. The project – a joint venture with the Special Kids Foundation – was slated to include a new 25,000-square-foot facility featuring aerobics, cardiovascular and strength-training facilities plus a health and fitness center and the all-abilities playground for children with physical disabilities. Oakley City Councilman Jim Frasier, whose SMF Construction company planned to donate the construction of the Oakley allabilities playground, said the project is still a priority.

“As far as I’m concerned, the commitment is still there. We just need to work through the proper channels,” said Frasier. “But it depends on what use my fellow council members have for utilizing this space. It’s disappointing to have lost two years on this project.” Plans for the property remain in flux, but Oakley City Manager Bryan Montgomery said the city – which has been leasing the property to the YMCA for $1 per year for the past six years – is exploring a number of options. “We’re certainly disappointed, but we’ll look to see how we can best utilize the land,” said Montgomery. “We may be able to keep the modulars that are on the property and then repurpose them, perhaps keep some of the (YMCA) classes and programs continuing for the immediate future.” As for the Special Kids playground, “There are several areas where the project could go over the 6 acres,” Montgomery

said, “but we’re still determining what the next step will be. We just don’t know everything yet.” The YMCA’s gym facilities aren’t the only areas taking a hit. In East County, a number of YMCA childcare centers have already been shut down. Both Discovery Bay Elementary and Timber Point Elementary sites were abruptly closed last week, leaving dozens of families without before and/or after school child care. And the news just keeps getting worse, said Toni Hay, a YMCA childcare provider at the John Muir Health Center in Antioch. “Hundreds of families are being affected by these closures,” said Hay, who was told that her childcare location would remain open. “The YMCA has such a great sense of tradition, but I have to say I’m not at all surprised by what’s happening. It’s been clear they have been struggling for some time. It’s really too bad.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

spoke, almost all of them opposed to uniforms, Harper made a lengthy speech in favor of uniforms: “I am not convinced that mandatory uniforms punish students. I’m not convinced that uniforms infringe on civil rights. I’m not convinced that uniforms cost more than street clothes. I’m not convinced that they retard growth. I’m not convinced they cripple character. I don’t think uniforms stifle your ability to think and to feel. Your character can still show while in a uniform.” Harper said uniforms would make clothes shopping cheaper and easier for parents and students. He pointed out that some of those opposed to school uniforms don’t

have a problem with wearing uniforms on sports teams and the Boy Scouts. “I want this to be the highest achieving school district in the Bay Area and want the parents to hold us to it,” he said. “I want the Antioch Unified School District to be the safest school district in the Bay Area and California. We all know about the shooting that occurred outside of Deer Valley High School. I want to make sure we can identify our students from gang members who don’t belong in our schools. I want people to come (to Antioch) because we have the safest and highestachieving school district in the Bay Area.” In a phone interview this week, board

member Walter Ruehlig acknowledged that the uniforms might not be greeted with open arms when the policy is implemented at the high school level. “I don’t want to be a Pollyanna and dismiss the premise of some pushback,” he said. But he has faith in the high school principals who assured the board they could make it work by tying uniforms in with school pride. “I think it was a Solomon-like decision,” said Ruehlig. “Obviously there’s very strong and passionate arguments on both sides that bear merit. But in the final analysis we made a balanced decision.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

smelt by rerouting them away from the water pumps on Old and Middle rivers, was delayed in December by the Obama administration’s Federal Interim Act report which called for –among other items – the re-evaluation of the 2-Gates program. The fish protection project is a joint venture by the State Department of Water Resources, the Federal Bureau of Reclamation and the Southern California Metropolitan Water District, which – if successful – would implement the installation of gates at Old River between Holland Tract and Bacon Island, and Connection Slough between Mandeville

and Bacon Island. The automatic gates would be closed at various times of the year for as much as 20 hours per day, according to some reports. Prior to the administration’s report, the Discovery Bay group managed to slow the 2-Gates project by extending its public-comment period. The group hopes to eventually force the Bureau of Reclamation to provide an Environmental Impact Report for the Discovery Bay and Delta regions. The two-hour meeting ended with a plea for residents to contact their local, state and federal legislators to help keep the effort alive,

and a request for donations. “Here’s the pitch,” said Dave Dove, chairman of the STCDA. “We need your continued support to pay for legal advice; we may be able to sue if the 2-Gates goes in. This is something that will go on for a long time and we need your help.” To make a donation, or for additional information, visit www.nodeltagates.com. Donations can also be mailed to Save the California Delta Alliance, 4112 Windward Court, Discovery Bay, CA 94505. Checks should be made payable to STCDA. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Antioch closes out DV

Justin Bunting of Heritage looks to put it up in a second-round playoff loss to Castro Valley Friday.

by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

Photo by Richard Wisdom

Patriots’ season ends by Michael Dixon Correspondent The Heritage boys basketball had a season to remember, taking the title of the highly competitive Bay Valley Athletic League and posting a 13-2 league (21-5 overall) record in the process. On Friday night, however, they ran into a tough Castro Valley team that knocked the Patriots out of the NCS playoffs in the second round, 52-34. Despite the fact that Castro Valley was seeded higher than Heritage, the BVAL championship gave the Patriots home-court advantage – which didn’t prove advantageous enough. The game began on a positive note for the Patriots as they notched the first two baskets of the game. But the Trojans responded with an 11-2 run for a five-point advantage, and that was as close as Heritage

would get for the rest of the night. By halftime, the Patriots faced a significant yet still manageable 27-19 deficit. The third quarter could have been their chance to get back in the game, as they allowed only seven Castro Valley points. But Heritage managed to score only six, and the Trojans pulled away with an 18-9 fourth quarter. In the game’s final minutes, Heritage coach Pat Cruickshank pulled his seniors, one by one, and embraced each of them as the crowd applauded. When asked why he chose not to go with a man-to-man defense, Cruickshank said, “All year, we played mostly man. We just didn’t feel that we had an opportunity to man these guys. We just figured that we have to play some zone to try and slow it down a see Patriots page 4B

It was good old-fashioned run-and-gun, back-and-forth, smash-mouth, in-your-face, slam-jam-thank-you-ma’am street ball for much of the first three quarters of the NCS playoff opener between the Antioch and Deer Valley boys basketball teams last week. And then the Wolverines ran out of gas, scoring just one point in the final frame, resulting in a 59-36 Panther blowout in the Antioch gym. “It was a good game for Antioch,” said Deer Valley Coach LeChet Phillips. “They played real hard tonight. They wanted it more than we did – that’s the bottom line. My guys didn’t come ready to play, and we got it taken to us tonight.” The game actually started out quite even. The first quarter ended in a 9-9 tie as tough defense dominated, particularly in the paint, where most of the action took place, with lots of tough blocks and fouls, aggressive rebounds and bodies diving for balls. Most of the second quarter followed suit, but with two minutes to go in the half and the score tied at 21, Antioch put up four unanswered points to take the lead into the locker room. The Panthers built their cushion to 10 midway through the third quarter, and posted a 42-35 advantage at the end of the third quarter. But the Wolverines were battling hard, and it still felt like it was anyone’s game. Then the wheels fell off of the Wolverines’ bus. They made a free throw several minutes into the fourth quarter – and did not score again for the rest of the game. Antioch’s

Patriots from page 2B little bit. And I thought we did OK. But offensively we couldn’t get to the rim and finish because of their athleticism, with guys blocking shots and stuff. They’re a heck of a team. I tip my cap to them, and they played well. We just didn’t shoot the ball the way that we’ve been shooting it.” Cruickshank was pleased with his team’s defensive effort. “I thought one of the things that had been key for us all year has been our defense. I think we won with our defense, and even though we went to a zone mostly tonight, I thought that our kids did a good job with it. They continued to attack and pressure. We just got to a point where we had to change our attack a little bit, and that’s when their (Castro Valley’s) strengths came out.” The Castro Valley athletic advantage was apparent. They had three monstrous dunks on the night, two of them in traffic. Despite the athletic advantages, though, Castro Valley had three players score all but four of their points. Juan Anderson was the top scorer on the evening with 19 followed by Chris Read with 16, and Roderick Bobbitt with 13. On Friday, no Patriots reached double digits. Senior Meniru Ofodu led with nine points followed by Xavier Watson with eight. “It’s been really special for me,” said Cruickshank as he summed up the season. “This is a great group of kids, especially our seniors. Every one of them put their heart in it all year long. They’re going to have a banner in the gym as league champions, and that’s something that they’re going to be able to treasure for their entire lives and they’re going to know that they did that.

Antioch from page 2B Panthers won two of three in the regular season), he added, “We should have been ready. We should have had a little more energy than we did. But that’s what happens. There’s really not much to say.” Antioch Coach John Woolery was, naturally, pleased. “I liked our effort,” he said. “For most, this was their first time playing in the playoffs. So they were a little nervous. But our effort was good. We played hard. When we play hard we’re OK.” Asked how his players were able to shut down Deer Valley in the fourth quarter, he said, “I think we just made some adjustments. I think we settled down. We have some young guys who are still feeling their way out. Once they settled down they played more of our uptempo type of basketball. “This was one of the first times we really closed a team out. We were up on them 16, 17 the last game. They came back and it was a five-point game. Freedom the same way. This was one of the first times that we had it up 10, 12 and put it away. I’m really proud of them.” Asked what he likes about his team, Woolery said, “Effort. I think we are athletic. Our athleticism is as good as anyone out there. When we are on, we are on.” They definitely needed to be on Saturday as they travel to take on number-one seed Newark Memorial, which lost only three games all year. Unfortunately, in a variation on what they did to Deer Valley, the Panthers lost 45-62 after being down by just five points at the half. Grimes scored 22 points. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

If Your Ship is Sinking, Don’t Give Away Your Life Vests by Joan Grimes, Esq.

Bankruptcy Exemptions California law, a person can have up to $21,825 in cash and other assets at the time of the bankruptcy petition which will be exempt. That means there is no reason to sell your RV or boat unless that is really want you want to do so. However, if you have money in your savings or checking account, you should make sure that you are not saving this money in a bank or credit union where you have debt. Many banks and credit union have agreements that allow set-offs if a loan is in default from other checking or savings accounts. Personal Injury and Workers Compensation AwardsPersonal injury settlements are generally exempt under “lost compensation” and future earning awards are exempt to the extent reasonably necessary for support. In addition, Workers Compensation Awards are exempt. Life Insurance- Life Insurance is generally exempt. Therefore, term life/whole life insurance should not be cancelled since it is much more expensive to obtain as you get older. The above is just a partial list of exemptions available to individuals filing for bankruptcy protection. The purpose of the Bankruptcy Code is to provide people with a fresh start. A fresh start does not mean empty cupboards, empty retirement accounts, empty savings accounts or no equity in a car or home. We are all living longer and we will need food in our cupboards, money in our retirement accounts and a car that is paid off. If you do not have sufficient income to pay your bills as they come due and owing, you should seek legal counsel before withdrawing any monies from a retirement account, savings account or taking a loan against your home or car. These are difficult times, but do not miss the help and protection provided by the Bankruptcy Code and California law by waiting too long. Just because this ship is underwater does not mean that you should give up your life vests that you will need to keep you afloat!

One of the saddest things is when a person comes into my office explaining that they have waited to come in until they have used up all their savings, retirement funds, equity in their home or car just to keep paying their credit cards and other debts. This just breaks my heart because it was completely unnecessary. The Bankruptcy Code does not want or encourage people to wait until they have used up all of their resources to file bankruptcy. In fact, the Bankruptcy Code and California law discourages these actions by specifically protecting certain assets in a bankruptcy case from the reach of creditors. So what are some of the assets which are generally protected and what actions should you be taking to protect these assets? Retirement Accounts- All private retirement plans and profit sharing plans are exempt, which means you can keep most or all of your savings in these accounts. Therefore, you should never use retirement accounts to pay credit cards, bring home loan payments current on a house that is underwater or pay other bills which could be discharged in a bankruptcy. Every withdrawal from a retirement account will be taxed on both federal and state levels as well as incurring the 10% penalty for early withdrawal unless it falls under an exception for early withdrawals. If you are in your 30’s-40’s, a withdrawal of $1,000 will amount to a loss of $10,000 in retirement income. If you are in your 20’s, a withdrawal of $1,000 will amount to a loss of $20,000 in retirement income. The withdrawal of even smallest amount will be a huge reduction in retirement income later. You must protect your future. Homestead Exemption- The California homestead exemption applies to your principal “dwelling” on the date the bankruptcy petition is filed. The minimum homestead exemption in California effective January 1, 2010 is $75,000. The exemption is increased to $100,000 if the you or your spouse reside in the homestead or at least other one member of the family resides in the residence and does not own an interest in the residence. The homestead exemption is increased to $175,000 if you or your spouse meets the minimum age requirement of 65, are disabled or meet the “low income” qualifications’. Therefore, if you still have equity in your home, do not use it to pay dischargeable debt such as credit card or personal loans. Wildcard Exemption- If the homestead exemption is not used as discussed above, a person can have in addition to the car, jewelry and household goods and furnishing exemptions, retirement accounts and the other exemptions provided under

Pittsburg gives Freedom its day in court by Dave Roberts Staff Writer Pittsburg’s boys tennis team beat Freedom 5-4 in the league opener at Freedom last week. On the plus side, the Falcons’ unseasoned players are gaining valuable match experience, according to Freedom Coach Steve Amaro. Last year’s Falcons team finished in third place but qualified for the NCS playoffs for the first time. Graduating from that team was their best player, Bob Harris, who won the individual league championship. Currently replacing him in the number-one slot is Mark Arroyo, who won his match in three sets against Pittsburg’s Reynell Paragas. “He’s played for four years and been one of the hardest workers we have had on the team,” said Amaro of Arroyo. “He always just aims to be the best he can be. “This year there’s an exciting energy on the team. They want to do well and are practicing hard. They need

Martial arts, police fight for at-risk youth by Dave Roberts Staff Writer Just a few years ago Jay Vizcarra was going nowhere fast – a bum with a one-way ticket to Palookaville or worse. “I just got into a lot of fights with hanging out with the wrong crowd,” he said. “Every day I was fighting somebody.” Now 20 years old, the Brentwood resident still gets into fights – but now they take place in the ring in mixed martial arts bouts. On Feb. 20, fighting under the moniker “Vicious” Jay Vizcarra in the first-ever officially sanctioned amateur bout in Northern California at Dragon House in San Francisco, he

put a rear naked chokehold on his opponent, causing him to tap out, ending the fight with two seconds left in the first round. “That’s a big accomplishment for me to where I had no technique fighting on the street and going in there with someone who’s bigger than me,” he said. “The win was the biggest accomplishment of my life.” He plans to do more amateur fighting and then eventually turn pro “and end up big.” It’s quite a turnaround for someone who might have ended up doing his fighting in San Quentin. Vizcarra credits the Brentwood Police Athletic Program (PAL) and see Youth page 23B

Genetics – no excuse for heart disease by Dagan Henderson For decades, physicians have believed that while some of the risks for developing heart disease could be managed, a lot of heart disease has to do with genetics. Recent research has shown otherwise. Dr. Alejandro Prieto, a board certified interventional cardiologist affiliated with Sutter Delta Medical Center, pointed to three recently published studies. “We’ve learned that genetics isn’t nearly as much of a factor as we thought it was,” said Prieto. “Most of the contributing factors, even hereditary conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure, can be managed to reduce the risk of heart disease, whether it’s by lifestyle choices or medications.”

Nine things you can control One major study conducted by the Interheart study group identified nine major factors that contribute to our risk of heart attack. The risk factors include diabetes, high blood pressure, abdominal obesity, psychosocial factors such as stress, and smoking. Risk-lowering factors include exercise, daily intake of fruits and vegetables, and moderate alcohol consumption. So by either avoiding or managing the risk factors and incorporating the risk-lowering factors into our lifestyles, we can take control of our heart attack risk.

A blood test can measure your risk A second study called into question the common belief that most heart attacks are the result of plaque buildup obstructing 70 percent or more of an artery. The study found that the type of plaque was as important – and perhaps even more impor-

tant – as the size of the blockage. “Some types of plaque are made up of a thin shell that covers a thick mix of fat and cholesterol,” said Prieto. “Those plaques can break apart if they lose their shell, spilling a dense grouping of cholesterol into the blood stream. Clots caused by the cholesterol can cause a heart attack.” A blood test exists that can identify patients likely to have the more-dangerous type of plaque. For them, medications can reduce their risk of heart attack.

Prevention vs. surgery A third study looked at the effect of modifying risk factors even after heart disease develops. The study divided into two groups of participants with a history of at least one severely narrowed artery. One group modified risk factors by such methods as reducing blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and improving diet and exercise habits. The other group modified risk factors and underwent a procedure to widen a narrowed artery. At the study’s end, the participants that had undergone surgery were not significantly less likely to suffer from a heart attack than the participants that had only modified risk factors – the lesson being that prevention efforts can make a significant impact even after heart disease develops. Ultimately, Prieto said, the studies demonstrate that we can exercise control over our heart’s health. He emphasized that it is our responsibility to care for our hearts if we hope to live long and healthy lives. Dagan Henderson is a medical writer affiliated with Sutter Delta Medical Center in Antioch.

Pittsburg is playing as well as they have ever played. The rest of the league is not far behind. Antioch is picked to win the league. They are returning the most players and look really solid.” Meanwhile, “Freedom is developing a new identity,” he said. In addition to Arroyo, some of the standouts this year are Jeff Matteri, who is in the number two slot and “is a tremendous athlete but doesn’t have the tennis experience that Marty has had,” said Amaro. Jake Belarski, who is number three, is also in need of more competitive tennis experience – both he and Matteri haven’t quite played a full year yet. Currently at number four is Matt Ploeg, who “may end up playing anywhere between four and number one,” said Amaro. “There’s a lot of parity with the team right now. That’s what makes this a dangerous team.” The loss to Pittsburg put Freedom at 0-1 in league play and 0-2 overall. This season’s tough BVAL competition could make it hard for the Falcons to match last year’s third-place finish. Amaro said that if he had to make a prediction right now, he’d guess that Antioch will finish first, Deer Valley and Heritage will fight for second and third and Freedom may come in fifth.

Youth from page 7B Randy Verrett’s karate kenpo school on Balfour Road in Brentwood with helping get him on track. “Now I help teach the PAL class” at the school, said Vizcarra. “I watch (PAL) Officer (Roger) Wilson on how he helps the kids out so much. I never had anybody, a role model like that. I wish I did. I wish I had somebody who was there to help me. Right now I could be in jail” if not for the help. At Wilson’s request, Verrett launched an eight-week karate class in October that is free for middle school and junior high students participating in the PAL program, and have followed that with mixed martial arts training. “I can see changes in kids who used to be enemies, and now they are training together and sparring together and getting along,” said Verrett. “We are trying to work on something now to where we will offer our gym to the PAL program (year-round). We don’t want it to end for them. We want to be here for them as a safe place to come. Even if it’s just hanging out and listening to music in the gym, lifting weights or sparring. We are trying to get a bigger building. If we can get sponsors to help out, that would be huge.” PAL holds periodic fundraisers, but is always ready to accept tax-deductible donations through Wilson at 925-809-7768.
