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

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

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

Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I can’t really take the credit. The truth is that I’ve never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure, and the body responds by healing itself. Of course, all people respond differently to care, but we get terrific results. It’s as simple as that! Exciting Offer – Look, I know you’re smart. You want to get to the cause of your problem, and not just cover it up with drugs. When you are one of the first 20 people to call and schedule a new patient exam (by June 17, 2011) you’ll receive that entire exam for $37. That’s with consultation, exam, any necessary x-rays, full report of my findings….the whole ball of wax, and there’s no hidden fees. But, call right away because we expect to be flooded with calls as this exam normally costs $249. Again, there’s only 20 of these slots, so don’t miss out (by law, this offer excludes Medicare/Medicaid beneficiaries).

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

Police substation opens at The Streets by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

At about 25 feet square, the new Brentwood Police substation at The Streets of Brentwood might be small, but that doesn’t mean much to Kelli Brown, executive secretary to Chief Mark Evenson. “This station is almost as big as our first one, back when I started in 1980,” Brown cracked on Saturday during a ribbon-cutting event for the PD’s newest digs. Located next to the Rave Theater and Mel’s Diner, the facility was the scene of a grand opening celebration during last weekend’s Blues, Brews & BBQs event. According to Lt. Ben Tolero, the office will staffed by both Police Explorers and sworn officers as schedules permit. Officers will be able to use the station to meet with members of the public and write reports. The facility will also provide a headquarters for special events at The Streets. “This station is a great thing, just in the time it will save our officers,” Tolero said, estimating that operating from an office in the western part of the city will save officers 20 minutes of driving time to and from the Brentwood Boulevard station. More importantly, the office will help get police out of cars and in front of the public. Evenson told a small crowd of police, city staff and curious members of the public that the setting is more conducive to community policing because it makes officers approachable. “Unfortunately, most of the time when citizens talk to police, there’s a crisis going on, or there’s an enforcement issue,” he said. “They don’t always have the opportunity to engage people when there isn’t a crisis.”

Assisted by Police Chief Mark Evenson and fellow City Councilman Joel Bryant, Councilman Bob Brockman hams it up while cutting the ribbon for the new police substation at The Streets of Brentwood. The space for the station is being provided by The Streets, and will eventually feature the full range of computer, video and telephone equipment officers use at the main station. That will allow them, or the volunteers helping staff the office, to

look up reports and answer questions for the public. It will also provide visibility that should help keep problems from developing between people visiting the theater next door. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Brentwood’s smokin’ new community event by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

Blues, Brews & BBQs took Brentwood by storm last weekend, but not before Mother Nature did a little storming of her own. Local musicians, artists and vendors were all on hand for what organizers hope will become Brentwood’s newest signature event, which featured games and activities for kids, plenty of beer and wine (60 kegs of beer were sold), and many stores offering specials. But the thing they all came for was the barbecue. Unfortunately, demand from the estimated 10,000 to 12,000 who attended the three-day event simply outpaced the supply of grilled goodies, leaving some visitors disappointed. It’s one of the areas organizer Jeff Schults and members of the sponsoring Brentwood Police Activities League (PAL) consider a first-year problem, but a problem nonetheless, something that will be fixed next year. Unlike the annual Brentwood BBQ King Cook-off that inspired the event, last weekend’s Saturday competition was sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society, which conducts competitions all over the country. With names like What’s That Smell?, Slap Yo Daddy BBQ and Rolling Bones BBQ Circus, more than 30 cooking teams from all over the state attempted to meet the trained judges’ exacting standards and claim the title in KCBS’

The top three finishers overall were Rock’s Barbecue, first place; Butcher’s Daughter BBQ, second; and Slap Yo Daddy BBQ, third. (For a complete list of winners in all categories, as well as a slide show of the event, visit www.thepress.net.) On Sunday, the competition shifted to backyard barbecue. Seven cooking teams participated, and Kris McCullough, the Brentwood Barbecue King for the last two years, walked off with most of the hardware. He won trophies for the best chicken, ribs and overall, while judges said Jeff Luckeroth’s Bucket Boy BBQ team cooked

the best tri-tip. The unseasonably cool weather enjoyed during most of the event took a turn for the nasty Saturday afternoon, as frigid wind and rain tore through the venue, toppling booths and sending the crowd home early. But by Sunday morning, calm was restored and many of the 79 glittering cars, trucks and motorcycles returned for another day of oohs and ahhs at the car show. “I wanted to eat more barbecue, but the rest was fun, too,” said 9-year-old Jarrod Ollson. “I like the boxcar races the best.”

Proceeds from the event benefited PAL (45 percent) and the local nonprofit groups who helped stage the event (50 percent); 5 percent will be banked as seed money for next year. The numbers have yet to be finalized, but revenue should be a big help to some of the charities that went unpaid due to a downturn at last year’s CornFest. “The Blues, Brews & BBQs was better than we could have hoped for,” Schults posted on Facebook. “We should clear $50K easy. Lots of folks stepped up and several nonprofits are going to be really happy. Can’t wait for next year.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Liberty senior surprised by Prom Part II by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Photo by Richard Wisdom

Liberty High School senior Ana Barraza, with Shawn Whalen, was treated to her very own prom last week. She was unable to attend the senior ball in San Francisco due to an illness, so the student body threw a special prom in her honor. something small in the classroom. The students loved the idea, but a mini-prom wouldn’t do. They had bigger plans. Last Friday the Liberty High E-quad was the place to be, as dozen of seniors gathered to host Prom Part II in honor of Ana. The event featured food, decorations, a DJ, a picture area and plenty of dancing – more than Ana could have hoped for. Earlier in the week, Ana took part in a special scavenger hunt, collecting postit notes with heartfelt messages and clues. When she completed her journey, she

found a group of friends forming a tunnel and senior Shawn Whalen standing at the end of it, holding a final post-it that read “Prom?� As Ana entered the E-quad, dressed in a shimmering pink gown, she passed through a similar tunnel of students who cheered as she made her way through the crowd. At the end, she was given a pink sash that read “Fabulous� and a plastic tiara adorned with pink jewels, perfect for a princess. In typical prom fashion, the first thing she did was take off her shoes so she

While her classmates were dancing the night away in San Francisco, Ana Barraza lay in a hospital bed awaiting early-morning surgery. When the Liberty High School senior woke up on the morning of her senior ball, she experienced debilitating stomach pains. She was rushed to the hospital, where doctors told her she had suffered a gall bladder attack and they would need to remove the stones causing her so much pain. That meant an overnight stay in the hospital and no senior ball. “I was disappointed,� said Ana, an aspiring teacher who will attend Sonoma State in the fall. “But if I had to miss senior ball, then I had to miss senior ball. That’s just how it was.� But that’s not how it was – not if Ana’s friends had anything to say about it. Ana texted her friends to inform them of the bad news but encouraged them to have a good time and take plenty of pictures. They did as she asked and went to the city for prom, but they knew they had to do something special for their friend once she recovered. Enter Liberty teacher Kandy Aldana. Ana’s mentor in the Teaching and Learning Academy, Aldana has known Ana for four years. When she heard Ana missed senior ball, she talked to some students about putting on a mini prom after school – just

could move around comfortably as she was greeted by friends. With a shy smile, Ana posed for photos with friends and fellow students while she waited for her date to arrive. “This is so unexpected,� Ana said. “This is really nice of the school, the faculty and the students to do this for me. This is amazing. I had no idea they were planning something so big. I can’t believe this. It makes me feel really special.� And special is the reason students were so eager to put the event together. “Everyone loves Ana,� said Aldana. “She’s a great student and a wonderful person. She’s a quiet leader and a hard worker. She has the respect of her peers.� The students pulled out all the stops. They spoke with local businesses to donate food and decorations, and took the time to get dolled up for Prom Part II even after taking a final exam earlier in the day. The girls wore their sparkling gowns and the guys wore dress shirts and blue jeans. A few wore cargo shorts, but it didn’t matter. Like most proms, it took a while for the party to get going, but once Shawn arrived in a suit and pink tie to match Ana’s dress, it was time to celebrate. The students ooohhed and aaahhed as Shawn placed a corsage around her wrist and Ana pinned the boutonniere. Normally these traditions aren’t as public, but everyone was excited to

Liberty High School senior Ana Barraza runs the gauntlet of a tunnel of students as she enters Prom Part II, held in her honor.

Prom from page 6A give Ana the complete prom experience, including friend Niya Davis, who volunteered her boyfriend Shawn as Ana’s date. “When I heard we were doing prom for Ana, I wanted her to have the whole experience,” said Davis. “She told me she didn’t have a date, so I asked Shawn to step in. I want Ana to have an experience she’ll never forget. I love that girl so much and when she looks back on her senior year, I want her to remember that she got to have fun at prom.” Kari Backman has known Ana since kindergarten and was excited to join the planning committee to make prom a success. “Ana is the greatest,” said Backman. “When she texted me last week to say she wouldn’t make it to prom, I just knew we

had to do something. I’m really glad that we got to do this for her. She deserves this. I love her with all my heart and I’m so happy that so many people came together to make this special for her. Even the weather is cooperating. We couldn’t have asked for a better day.” Despite stormclouds looming in the distance, Prom Part II went off without a hitch. Ana and Shawn slow-danced to “Surfer Girl” by the Beach Boys and a crowd of more than 50 students danced their way through the afternoon. While Ana is still healing from her surgery, she said nothing will keep her from Friday’s graduation ceremony. “I don’t care what happens; I am not missing graduation. There’s no way.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

It is www.CheckMyNpv. com. The bad news is that the average person is going to have a pretty difficult time coming up with all the data points they are asking for, and if you don’t fill it out 100% completely, it won’t give you the number. However, if you were recently turned down for a loan mod and they sent you the NPV form, then you are in luck because it will have the data they used on it. You can take their form, then go to the website and try it yourself if you think some of their numbers aren’t correct to see if it would result in a different NPV calculation.

I’ve had many local homeowners call me recently to say that after months of applying for a loan mod, their lender just turned them down, and the reason they were given was “negative NPV.” Leave it to our lending industry to make things even MORE confusing, right when they should be being the most clear and transparent! “NPV” stands for “Net Present Value” and it is the key number that your lender may look at when considering whether or not to approve your loan mod request or short sale. The short definition of NPV is the lender is trying to figure out if they’ll lose more money by offering you a loan mod, short sale, or doing nothing and letting it foreclose. If your NPV is negative, it means your lender thinks they’ll lose MORE money through a loan mod or short sale than with a foreclosure. There are 33 different data points that your lender will consider to come up with your NPV. Some of the points are value of the home, amount you owe, when the loan was originated, your payment, your income, your current credit score, etc. They take all that info, crunch their numbers, and then if the NPV is negative, you are

Wings of hope to comfort Japanese kids by Samie Hartley Staff Writer What started out as a class project soon became a labor of love, as a group of students at Oakley Elementary School patiently folded more than 1,000 paper cranes to send to children in Japan affected by the earthquakes and tsunami. According to Japanese legend, if you fold 1,000 origami cranes, your wish will come true. While more than 20 fourthand fifth-graders in Cindy Tumin’s Universal Access class helped fold the cranes over the course of four weeks, they each wished for the same thing: to bring love, hope and support to the children of Japan whose lives were changed as a result of the natural disasters that struck the nation in March. see Hope page 20A

With summer right around the corner and at least one successful car show already underneath our hood – Brentwood’s own Blues Brews and BBQ – it’s safe to say our real estate market is bound to rev up. If you think about it, hot rods and real estate go hand in hand; both always show better in the summer without the rainy weather, and both for sale signs and muscle cars seem to multiply like sun beams between June, July, and August. So, with a statistical average of three prime summer months to purchase your dream muscle car (or home) what characteristics help to shorten your list? What should you immediately be searching for in order to cross out a few cars (or homes) and ensure you spend the most amount of time possible looking at the “winners?” Without going into too much detail, or too much bias one way or the other, I’d say bondo is a definite “no-no” in the world of car shopping. Unless you’re a do it “yourselfer” and can remove the body panel where the bondo is located, you’re wasting precious summer sunlight continuing to look at a car once you’ve been informed – or found out on your own – that bondo has been used in any type of repair job. That said, and to arm yourself against later heartbreak or agony, the magnet test is a GREAT tool for locating bondo. The magnet will hold to all of the metal on the car, but not any damaged areas that have been filled and/or fixed with the

body filler known as bondo. Applying the same above theory – how to save yourself later agony and at the same time help to shorten your list – to the real estate market let’s look at condos. From the outside, much like a car repaired with bondo, they look like a great deal. However, if you’re using an FHA loan to purchase a condo you’ll need to make sure UPFRONT that the condo and/or the condos development is FHA approved. Peeling back this layer is crucial for not later being heartbroken; if your offer FHA is accepted, but the condo and/or the condo development isn’t approved, there is nothing your lender can do. Period end of story, a non-FHA approved condo cannot be loaned on. But, as with the magnet test for bondo you can use FHA’s website to check condo approvals. https://entp.hud.gov/idapp/html/condlook. cfm is a GREAT tool for verifying whether or not you’ll be able to obtain financing on a condo before you go to look at it. Whether you’re shopping your local real estate market, or your local swap meet make sure to arm yourself with the tools needed to protect your investment. This will guarantee you’re not left in the cold once winter comes back around!

Second-grader Valia Chin and first-grader Sophia Garedakis, above left, race to the finish line as a part of Ron Nunn Elementary School’s lunch time Walking Club. Above right, Ron Nunn student Gavriel Curemeng, proudly displaying his foot charms, celebrates completing 26.6 miles – a marathon. Not bad for a second-grader.

Encouraging healthful living a step at a time by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Some walk, others run, but all members of the Ron Nunn Elementary School Walking Club have fun at lunch as they make laps around the playground. It’s not that the playground lacks a variety of activities. There are basketball courts, tetherball poles, a play set, foursquare courts and a large field for soccer or kickball. But students find just as much fun strolling, jogging and running around the blacktop. While the Walking Club, initiated in March by Principal Charla

Hernandez, is meant to promote healthy living, students get extra encouragement to keep moving. Those who complete a marathon, 26.6 miles, are invited to a frozen yogurt social at the end of the school year. More than 30 students qualified for the reward. “The idea is to get kids up and moving during their lunch recess,” Hernandez said. “Not all kids are good at sports, so the Walking Club gives them something to do. Students set their own goals and work at their own pace. Some kids walk every day. Some do only a mile a day.” To keep track, students carry a Walk-

ing Club card. After each lap, students line up as parent volunteers punch the cards. Eight punches equals one mile. For every mile students complete, they receive a brightly-colored foot charm to add to their Walking Club necklace. After 10 miles, they earn a 10-toed, two-footed charm. Students who make it to 26.6 miles are rewarded with a special 26.6 charm. While the yogurt social is an attractive goal, earning charms is a powerful motivator. Even the kindergarteners pump their little legs in hopes of earning another colorful charm to wear around their neck. For first-grader Julia Wright, the reason

for walking is simple: “It’s fun!” Other students, such as fourth-grader Calvin Hare, relish the personal challenge of completing as many laps as they can. “I like it (participating in Walking Club). I do it to stay active. I run a little and walk a little. I just keep moving.” Last week, Calvin completed his second marathon, collecting 52 neon, pastel and glittered foot charms and a ticket to the social. Hernandez said she’s pleased with the response to Walking Club and plans to continue the club in August when school is back in session. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Onsite child care at Oakley schools by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer When Oakley Elementary students return to the classroom in August, parents looking for before- and after-school care will find it right on their child’s campus. They’re called Extended Day Learning Centers, and beginning with the new 2011-12 school year, families with students enrolled in kindergarten through fifth grade in the Oakley Union Elementary School District (OUESD) will be able to participate in the programs, located onsite at all five of the district’s grade schools. “This is something we’ve been talking

about doing for our parents for a long time,” said Tammy Gonis, program coordinator for Extended Day Learning Centers. “And with Aim High shut down and the YMCA gone, parents needed something easy, accessible and local for their children. We think this is a great opportunity to work with the community. We’re very excited.” Open from 6 a.m. to the start of the school day and again in the afternoon until 6 p.m., the program is designed to provide parents with affordable, local daycare options. But the centers are also designed to offer not only extended days, but extended learning. “The program has several goals,” said Assistant Superintendent of Student Services

Maryann Hussey, “including extending students’ learning days by providing an engaging learning environment, offering assistance with their homework and offering other enrichment opportunities that continue to support our life skills.” And because the centers are run onsite by the OUESD, students enrolled in the program will enjoy the continuity, security and familiarity of their regular school site. “One of the advantages of district-run child care,” added Hussey, “is that we’ll have the same expectations of students as during the school day. For example, if they’re playsee Childcare page 20A

Black Diamond to suspend mine tours Black Diamond Mines Regional Park in Antioch offers public tours of the Hazel Atlas mine weekends from March to November. Due to scheduled maintenance, the Hazel Atlas mine tours and museum will be closed from June 17 to approximately July 15. The maintenance project includes backfilling a portion of the historic coal mine. The work area is unconnected to the present sand mine, where the tours are conducted. As a safety precaution, however, the entire mine area will be closed during the project. The maintenance project is one more step toward repairing and improving the entrance to the Greathouse

Visitor Center, which is expected to reopen in the summer of 2012. The project is completely funded by the Office of Surface Mining, a federal agency. Black Diamond Mines park, trails and naturalist programs unrelated to the mine will remain open during regular operating hours. Tours will quickly resume should the project finish ahead of schedule. To check the status of the maintenance project this summer, go to www. ebparks.org/closure or call Black Diamond Mines at 510-544-2750. For information on participating in a tour, visit www.ebparks.org or call 888-EBPARKS (option 2, then 3).

Only 118 cities across the nation were recognized as 2010 Playful City USA communities, and Brentwood has received the honor three years in a row. The city has reapplied to be designated as a Playful City for the fourth year and is currently seeking those interested in joining the Play Task Force. The Play Task Force meets four

times a year to identify opportunities to further engage Brentwood residents, encourage active use of Brentwood’s 57 parks and identify park improvement projects. Additionally, members assist with planning all Play Day events, volunteer at the events and spread the word about play to others in the community. To join the Play Task Force, call the Brentwood Parks and Recreation Department at 925-516-5366. Members must be at least 12 years old and Brentwood residents.

Local business, education and community leaders were in attendance, as well as college students, faculty and staff. Students from the college’s Rotaract club conducted tours of the facility and speech students shared why the Brentwood Center is special to them. Speakers included Contra Costa Community College District Chancellor Helen Benjamin, Brentwood Mayor Robert Taylor, current Interim President Richard Livingston, Governing Board Vice-President Tomi Van de Brooke, and elected officials including Assemblywoman Joan Buchanan, Supervisor Mary Piepho, Congressman John Garamendi and Sen. Mark DeSaulnier. The Brentwood Center opened in the summer of 1998 at the Liberty Union High School District Adult

Center on Second Street. In the fall of 2001, LMC negotiated a lease with the City of Brentwood and moved to the Brentwood Education & Technology Center at 101A Sand Creek Road. The center’s enrollment has increased significantly over the years. The FTES (full-time equivalent student count) was 329 for 2001-02 and 1,303 for 2009-10. The number of students served (headcount or individuals) has increased from approximately 500 students in the fall of 2001 to more than 2,500 in the fall of 2010. The college is planning to build an education center near Marsh Creek Road and the Highway 4 Bypass. The new center would serve a maximum of 5,000 full- and part-time students, and staff 80 full-time and 200 part-time employees.

Penny Wise, Pound Foolish Filing Bankruptcy without a Bankruptcy Attorney by Joan Grimes, Esq. When a person is experiencing financial problems and knows a Bankruptcy must be filed, it is very tempting to consider filing without an attorney. However, before you start down the road of filing on your own and opening up a GOLD MINE for the bankruptcy trustee and your creditors, consider the following: If you miss even one exemption for which you are entitled or the timing of bankruptcy filing is not correct, all the savings you made by filing on your own are GONE. If you do not properly exempt assets, the bankruptcy trustee WILL take your assets and sell them for the benefit of creditors. The Trustee is not there to help or educate you! Their job is to maximize the recovery for creditors AFTER paying themselves. Let me tell you that this is happening everyday. I can’t even begin to tell you the number of times I have seen trustees take money from bank accounts, tax refunds, jewelry and vehicles because the Debtors did not have representation. If you omit property either intentionally or inadvertently, the trustee can take the omitted property and sell it for the benefit of creditors or can move for a denial of discharge. If you miss or don’t include debts, either intentionally or inadvertently, the debt may be deemed nondischargeable or the court may move for dismissal. If you don’t understand the Means Test, you may not qualify for bankruptcy or may end up filing the wrong type of bankruptcy case. If you have a business and your bankruptcy case is not filed properly, you may end up losing the business or assets of the business. If you are on title to bank accounts, personal property or real property with relatives, the trustee or creditors may attempt to take the property even if you claim to have only bare legal title versus an equitable interest in the property. Do you understand the effect of inheritance after a bankruptcy filing?

If you don’t understand real property law, you may end up filing an unnecessary bankruptcy or alternatively may increase your personal and/or tax liability by completing a short sale or foreclosure prior to the bankruptcy filing. If you don’t understand tax law and own real property or have significant amounts of debt, don’t even think about filing bankruptcy on your own especially if you have assets such pensions, IRA, 401k or other assets such as annuities. You don’t want to trade bank and credit card collectors for the IRS or State Franchise Board. The fact that you currently do not have equity in the property is irrelevant. In conclusion, filing bankruptcy on your own is almost always a very bad idea and ends up costing more in the long run because of assets lost or other problems with the bankruptcy case. The above is just a few of the issues which must be addressed prior the bankruptcy filing. Bankruptcy is very complicated area of the law and is a mine field for the unwary. Even attorney who are general practitioners will not generally file bankruptcy cases because of the complexities involved in the filings. If you don’t have the money to file bankruptcy at this time, you should still seek legal counsel and discuss your options. Most bankruptcy attorneys allow payment of fees over time.

BEWARE SMALL EMPLOYERS: TOP 10 WAYS TO AVOID BEING SUED

MEDA L LD AWARD

2010

GO

16A

Lawsuits can be death for small businesses. In more than 20 years of legal advice to employers and employees, I have seen repeated mistakes by employers, most of which could have been avoided. Don’t despair if you recognize yourself in this list; most employers stumble on more than one. The solution is to change your procedures NOW, before a disgruntled employee takes action. DO NOT: 1. Hold an employee’s final check “hostage” until return of uniform, cell phone, keys, and/or other company property. 2. Automatically characterize all employees as “exempt” from the Rhonda Shelton Kraeber, Esq. overtime laws and pay them a salary. 3. Pay employees in cash. You still have to take withholdings, itemize, and document. 4. Allow employees to work through breaks and leave early. 5. Hire “independent contractors.” Most workers do not qualify as independent contractors and various taxing authorities are watching this closely. 6. Loan money to employees and then deduct whatever is still owing from final paychecks. 7. Have a “use it or lose it” vacation policy. 8. Fail to document your employees’ hours worked. 9. Ignore complaints that an employee is being “bothered.” Red flag. This is code for sexual harassment. 10. Fail to have an employee handbook. All employers should have one, even small employers. While these may be my “top 10,” unfortunately there are many more ways that employers— especially small employers—can run afoul of the labor laws, sometimes with catastrophic results. Your best strategy is to be pro-active and get solid policies and procedures in place with the help of a knowledgeable professional. As the only employment law specialist in East Contra Costa County, I can help: Rhonda@alvisfrantzlaw.com or (925) 516-1617. –By Rhonda Shelton Kraeber, Esq.

In addition, these city councils have differing meeting schedules and responsibilities, some cities have budgets of $50,000,000 and some budgets of $10,000,000.” Brentwood, a town of about 50,000, paid its council a total of $91,998 in the 2009-10 fiscal year.

Foreign Wars 6435 Post Commander Henri Veilieux, United States Army Reserve 483rd Transportation Battalion Lt. Colonel McLaughlin and Maurice Dellmer, an Iraq veteran and representative for Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla. As Veilieux celebrated the recent demise of Osama bin Laden, other speakers focused on the importance of remembrance – something the attendees, many of whom were dressed in red, white and blue – embraced. “It is especially important to remember and honor those who are missing and those who are no longer with us,” Dellmer said. “Their sacrifices,

dedication and service will always be remembered. It is also important to recognize the families of our men and women in uniform who must wait month after month, deployment after deployment, for their loved ones to return. Your patience and patriotism is inspiring.” A wall of honor replete with replica memorials for World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War was unveiled by members of the Patriot Sentinel Riders. Later, a wreath was placed on the Veterans Memorial and a rose was set on the 9/11 monument, one of the more solemn rituals of the day.

The crowd remained quiet through the retirement of an American flag by local Boy Scouts, as well as a 21gun salute and the playing of “Taps” by buglers Justin Spahn and Stephen Guidry. The ceremony also hosted 37year Army veteran James Bundgaard’s Camp Patriot, which shows how tents were set up throughout various wars. Bundgaard has been on the event’s planning committee for four years. “This was the most involved (event),” Bundgaard said. “For me, what it bears out is the public is very much aware of our fallen.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

roughly 63,000 people, compensated its council to the tune of $40,035 that year. Oakley, with 34,000 residents, paid its council $28,544, and provided no health care or pension benefits. The report also recommended that Contra Costa County cities and special districts should conduct an annual public review of compensation to boards and councils, making clear the items of salary, meeting fees, health insurance, pension, life insurance, cell phone usage and Internet connections. Davis responded that while this has not yet been implemented within Antioch, the city would work on it. He also noted that in 2009, in recognition of the recession, the council adopted a resolution

encouraging elected officials to decrease their compensation. “Certainly, an annual review of council compensation and benefits discussed above would consider whether reductions (or possibly increases) are appropriate,” Davis wrote in his letter. “We would suggest further analysis to determine what should be considered in looking at salary and meeting fee expenditures ‘in line with other cities’ beyond simply an average of salaries provided in a wide variety of cities.” The Grand Jury report also examined compensation to the directors of its 27 largest special districts, and the results revealed a certain parity. The West County Wastewater District, which serves about

124,000 people, paid its board of directors $175,254 in the 2009-10 fiscal year – highest in the county. Second was the Central Contra Costa Sanitary District, which serves 451,900 residents. That district paid its directors $158,174. Some of the more alarming numbers come with the third-highest-paid district – Byron-Bethany Irrigation. Though it serves only 3,000 residents, its directors were paid $105,380, including a countyhigh $99,684 in health care insurance costs. Much as it did for the cities, the Grand Jury report recommended that the districts perform an annual review of board compensation. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

It’s not all about API Editor: After reading “East Bay Schools at Bottom of Study” on May 23 (in another newspaper), I feel compelled to remind readers that the API scores are simply one tool for evaluating student outcomes and preparedness. I have had the privilege of visiting classrooms in the Antioch Unified School District this spring, and would like to give examples of authentic multiple assessments used by three teachers who work with very diverse student populations. I reflect on the Business Academy teacher who provided real-life experiences for his students as they went through the necessary steps to open a student store. The students wrote proposals, developed organizational strategies, performed cost analyses and completed every aspect of the work necessary to open a small business. They formally presented their findings to the AUSD administration to procure the space needed and saw their work culminated with the district approval of the operational space. Then I recall the Antioch middle school teacher who actually chose to take a class of underachieving prealgebra students for the year. Their test scores soared as they documented their understanding of mathematical concepts through student-generated books, poems, comic strips, dance and stories. This teacher attributed most of her success to an understanding of how students best learn and retain information, daily outreach to parents, and her availability to mentor students from dawn to dusk. Consider the Antioch teacher who blogs with her students each night as they contemplate “Essential Questions” on such topics as

the war on terror. Discussions had started earlier in the day during their class readings and Socratic dialogue. Through their written responses, the teacher could track their thinking and ability to write. These teachers know about the importance of the three R’s: Relationship, Rigor and Relevance. Some of their students, being human, have difficulty reading or solving math algorithms; however, they have learned how to think and to be resourceful. They are becoming prepared to be contributing members to society. I am hoping that other newspaper intentionally made the “Education Trust-West Study” front-page-headline news for some of the following reasons: It is certainly an invitation to encourage members of the community to do one-on-one mentoring with students, exhort businesses to talk to school officials about mutually beneficial partnering programs and inspire parents to have their children sent to school ready to learn. We as educators need everyone’s help to meet today’s enormous educational challenges. Mary Allan Retired Teacher Antioch Unified School District

Someone is lying Editor: There was an interesting article in a newspaper recently about BART wanting to put a tax on us for new cars. Why weren’t they factored into capital improvements? Every meeting I have attended, Joel Keller has said the 40-plus years the people of Antioch and East County have paid into BART has gone into running the system, not building the system out to us. Now they say they need new cars so they want to tax us again. Who is lying to us? It is more likely all the money we have paid into BART has gone for ridiculous wages, pensions and board member perks. I say: no more money until they stop lying to us and open up their books and show us where our money has gone. Martin Fernandez Antioch

Wrong! All BART counties would be asked to vote favorably on the parcel tax, the parcel amount which is unknown, but the total would be in the neighborhood of $1 billion. Amazingly, the BART Board had not set up a reserve fund to help pay for such a massive replacement (what’s a reserve fund?). The rub, of course, is that we in East County have been paying BART taxes since the beginning, but we are not getting real BART, while Livermore fights over where to put their shiny new real BART station, and previously non-BART county Santa Clara moves forward on their real BART plans. All this, on top of what some called a political ploy to offer BART riders a short-term discount to use up an unexpected surplus of funds. That idea was sent down the terminal siding. And then there is the matter of the golden parachute paid to the general manager, whom BART tried to fire secretly, found themselves in hot water and ended up paying a million bucks to get her out the door. So, there’s a couple million dollars that could have gone to East County, or to a reserve fund for car replacement. At this point I’m for squelching the parcel tax idea for East County residents. Seems to me that BART owes us … Kermit Sveen Brentwood

Hope from page 8A Earlier in the semester, Tumin had planned to read “Sadako and the 1,000 Paper Cranes” by Eleanor Coerr, a story about a girl living in Japan during World War II, but hesitated after the news broke that Japan had been rocked by several quakes. After giving it more thought, she decided the kids should read the story and openly discuss the book’s message of hope. The students were so inspired by the story that they jumped on board when Tumin suggested the crane project. Folding hundreds of cranes is easier said than done. It took the students more than 30 minutes to learn the folding method to complete their first cranes, but before long, they were folding up to four cranes per class. “It was really hard at first,” said Cameron Imrisek Kawalkowski, “but it’s something that I really wanted to do for the people of Japan, so I kept trying.” Jaqueline De Torres agreed: “I thought I was going to give up, but I kept going because these cranes are special. I hope it brings good luck to the kids in Japan.” While the students folded cranes, Tumin searched for a way to get the cranes to a group of school children in Japan. Luckily, her son’s former college roommate Keisuke Sasada is a Japan native assisting the disaster relief effort in northeast Japan. Sasada identified a school in Miyagi serving students the same age range as Tumin’s. The school was gutted by the tsunami that followed the quake and the students are now studying at a local junior high until their school can be rebuilt and refurbished. Tumin will mail the cranes to Sasada this summer. “I’m really proud of the kids for putting their hearts into it,” Tumin said. “At first it was just a class project to them, but then they realized what these cranes will mean to the kids in Japan. These cranes are a symbol of hope and a reminder that the world hasn’t forgotten about them.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Spartans oust Pats by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer Riding an upset win over top-seeded San Ramon Valley, the Heritage High varsity baseball team was confident heading into Tuesday’s North Coast Section semifinal playoff game against De La Salle. Those positive feelings were swept away by the 14 mph wind that gusted through the Heritage diamond, as the Patriots took a heartbreaking 4-3 loss at the hands of the Spartans. “We played a good game; just came up a little short,” senior rightfielder Ryan Howell said. “We had a good season, but it sucks to come up short in the end.” Tied 3-3 in the third inning, Heritage junior pitcher Paul Blackburn threw a fastball to De La Salle’s Hunter Mercado-Hood that he immediately wanted back. The sophomore rightfielder sent the pitch over the center field wall for the game-deciding solo home run. Mercado-Hood continued to hurt the Patriots in the fifth inning, when he robbed senior catcher Ryan Atlas of a possible home run with a catch at the wall. “I think the kids expected to win this game, and we had some opportunities in the first inning,” manager Kevin Brannan said. “I couldn’t be prouder of a group of kids, especially my seniors.”

The loss ended a successful season for Heritage (20-7), which earned the Bay Valley Athletic League title for the second year in a row. But there were no smiling faces in the Patriots dugout after the game. Coaches and players both felt that this was a game they could have won. Junior second baseman Carlos Carillo went 2-for-4 and scored a run. Blackburn, who has verbally committed to Arizona State, pitched a complete game, striking out five. “We couldn’t get anything going or put anything on the ground – just popped everything up,” Blackburn said. Heritage, playing as the visiting team after losing a coin toss, jumped out to a 20 lead in the first inning, thanks to a walk from senior first baseman Dalton Combs and an error. The Patriots pushed the lead to 32 in the next frame on a sacrifice fly by senior leftfielder Jeff Casperson. But De La Salle (20-7) answered in its part of the second inning. An RBI groundout by junior leftfielder Steve Herting tied the score and set the stage for MercadoHood’s homer. Senior pitcher Steve Nyznyk went the distance for the Spartans, striking out four Heritage batters. To get to the semifinal round, the Pasee Pats page 26A

Freedom high jumper Mike Kicenski smiles as he signs a symbolic letter of intent to attend Chico State.

Field specialists move on by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer Two of East County’s top track-andfield athletes – who happen to be close friends – recently signed letters of intent to Division I colleges. Heritage shot putter Jake Rounds will attend Northern Arizona next year, becoming the first Patriots track-and-field athlete to compete at the next level. Rounds transferred from Freedom after his sophomore year. That same day, Freedom high jumper Mike Kicenski signed his letter of intent to

Chico State. Rounds, known for his Samson-like blond hair, has been one of Heritage’s strongest athletes since making the switch. Rounds’ shot put toss of 57 feet at the recent North Coast Section Meet of Champions earned him a place at this weekend’s California Interscholastic Federation championship meet in Clovis. Rounds is excited by the prospect of attending Northern Arizona. “I just fell in love with the campus and the surrounding area; see Field page 23A

Deer Valley’s Joy Gee battles Antioch’s Le’Shay Evans in the girls 400meter relay race, which came down to the wire.

Alex Horncliff called it a miracle throw. The judges called it good enough for first place. At the recent North Coast Section Meet of Champions, the Heritage High senior uncorked a discus throw of 173 feet – a personal record and best on the day by seven feet. For his efforts, Horncliff became one of 18 Bay Valley Athletic League athletes to advance to the California Interscholastic Federation meet this weekend in Clovis. The top four finishers in each NCS event moved on to the state level. “When I was talking to my coaches, they just said, ‘It’s about time,’” Horncliff said. Deer Valley, which placed second overall in girls events, will place seven athletes in the Clovis meet. Four of those comprise the girls 4x100 meter relay team – junior Audrena Harlan and seniors Erica Wilson, Joy Gee and Darnella Jenkins – which took the blue ribbon over Antioch by a mere .05 seconds in one of the most exciting races of the event. “We’ve always known that the girls have the abilities and the talents,” Wolverines head coach

Bernard Stephens said. “It’s just a matter of putting it together on the same day.” Deer Valley athletes Chantell Taito (shot put), Raven Fox (400 meter dash) and Shawn Simms (200 meter dash) also qualified for state. Wilson, regarded as one of the fastest hurdlers in California, took first place in the 300-meter hurdles – the only BVAL athlete to win an individual track event. She will compete at the state level for the third time in her career after competing there as a sophomore and junior. “I didn’t do too good in my 100-meter hurdles, so I wanted to redeem myself,” Wilson said. “For me, the 100s are about rhythm. In the 300, if you make a mistake, it gives you more time. I’m pretty strong in the 300s, so that comes well and it’s always been more of a favorite.” The Antioch girls team placed third behind NCS champion James Logan. The Panther girls made their presence known at the podium and will send their relay team to the state meet – senior Taevionna Wilson, sophomore Lindsay McGrath and seniors Le’Shay Evans and Khadija Suleman. Suleman, Antioch’s relays anchor, qualified not only as a member of the two relay teams, but see Athletes page 26A

Heritage outhits rival Freedom in playoff win by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

One of the main storylines this season in Bay Valley Athletic League softball has been the budding rivalry between Heritage and Freedom high schools. The Patriots were able to challenge the Falcons’ stranglehold on the league title, claiming a co-championship this year. When the two teams met in the second round of the North Coast Section playoffs, a little more was at stake than just advancing to the next round. Fifth-seeded Heritage emerged victorious in a blustery 6-0 victory, moving on to its first semifinal game. “We did the little things,” Heritage head coach Ron Rivers said. “We had better focus on defense and we capitalized when we could.” What seemed to be a pitchers’ duel between Freedom sophomore Madison Williams and Patriots junior Lisa Rodrigues turned into a one-sided game in the third inning. Williams began the frame by giving up a hit and then hitting a batter. After an error at first base – a constant problem for the Falcons (17-8) on Friday – Williams gave up a two-run double to Heritage sophomore catcher Malia Rivers. Two batters later, senior right fielder Deni Yandell rapped out a single, driving home two more runs to make it 4-0. The Patriots (15-7) scored again the

Rodrigues helped her own cause in the seventh inning by belting a home run over the left field fence. Rivers finished 2-for-3 with two RBI, a run and a stolen base. Yandell went 1-for-4 on the afternoon. Rodrigues was in control all day in the circle, giving up just four hits and striking out four. “My team really stepped up today,” Rodrigues said. “Now we have a chance to

move forward and actually take it all.” Despite Williams’ wildness – five hit batsmen – she was effective, managing to strike out 10 Patriots. Senior centerfielder Malena Padilla finished 1-for-3. Freedom head coach Jeff Jonas was not disappointed in his team’s effort in this game or this season. After losing several infielders to graduation, Jonas expected this year to be more of a transition for the fourth-seeded Falcons. Freedom was able to claim another league title, and Williams

will return to pitch for two more years, so the future is still bright. The team also returns talented players such as junior third baseman Brianna Simpson and sophomore catcher Iniki Kaleialii. “I’m so proud of these kids,” Jonas said. “To grind it out and be there at the end – that was huge. That showed a lot of character. It just shows their class. They dedicated themselves and they work hard.” For coverage of Heritage’s semifinal game against James Logan, visit www.thepress.net.

I plan on picking up the hammer (event).” Rounds’ personal best shot put throw measured 57 feet, 11 inches at the North Coast Section Tri-Valley meet the week before the Meet of Champions. As a discus thrower, his best mark was set on April 16 at the Mudville Invitational in Stockton, when he reached 160 feet, 1 inch. “He’s done an outstanding job,” said Heritage head coach Kevin Bain. “When he came to us as a junior, he was already somewhat accomplished, but not to the level of where he is right now. All the hard work he put in over the summer and sacrificing his football season this year has really helped his throwing.” Kicenski will join Rounds in Clovis this weekend after a high jump of 6-5 earned him

In his freshman and sophomore seasons, Kicenski also competed in the triple jump and long jump before focusing on the high jump. “He’s been one of the hardest-working athletes here,” Freedom head coach Glenn Briggs said. “He took leadership and has helped a couple of freshmen and sophomores, taught them how to jump a little bit.” Kicenski, who also gave up basketball to become a high jumper exclusively, was accepted by Chico State the same day he cleared the bar at 6-4 in the West Valley/Chico Invitational, held at the campus in April. “I feel like I’ve done good over the past four years,” Kicenski said, “and been really productive while still having fun and enjoying myself.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Panthers happy with run by Michael Dixon Correspondent Antioch High’s softball season can be viewed in a few different ways. The initial negative is that its 2011 team advanced only as far as the 2010 team – the second round of the North Coast Section playoffs. Both were 1-0 losses, the most recent at the hands of Newark Memorial. Nevertheless, the Panthers managed a 16-6 record (7-3 Bay Valley Athletic League). Had they beaten Freedom the last day of the season, they would have broken the Falcons run atop the BVAL standings. Five players posted a batting average higher than .300 this year, led by senior pitcher Paris Imholz, who hit at a .386 clip. In the circle, she was equally talented, going 16-6 with a 0.97 ERA. One of her wins was against Freedom in their first match-up, the first time she had defeated Freedom. “We played a good game; stayed up the whole time,” said Imholz. “I came into the season with high expectations. As soon as the season started, we started to blend well.” Of the five .300 hitters, three will be graduating: Imholz, third baseman Stephanie Mathias (.361) and first baseman Kelsey Cast (.308). Also lost to graduation will be outfielder Allison Snedden and catcher Shannon West. Yet the Panthers will return second baseman Nicollette Redfearn, who as a junior hit .310 while scoring 15 runs, driving

in nine and smashing four doubles. As a freshman, outfielder Shelbi Graifman, who hit .311, and was a perfect 7-for-7 in stolen bases. After losing a share of the BVAL title in a 7-6 loss to Freedom in the last game of the season, the Panthers earned the No. 6 seed in the NCS playoffs, giving them a first-round home game against College Park. After surrendering two first-inning runs, Imholz and her Antioch teammates shut the Falcons out for the remainder of the game. Mathias and Redfearn led the Panthers with two RBIs apiece en route to a 6-2 victory. In their second-round road loss to Newark Memorial, Antioch stranded nine runners and was victimized by solid defense by the Cougars, as pitcher Marissa Chapa allowed no runs. Imholz led the way with two hits. “We outhit them; we outplayed them,” said head coach Brook Russo. “We just made a couple of errors, and that’s what cost us.” The Panthers were hurt by the lateseason injury to their starting shortstop, sophomore Kristine Ball. In addition to her defense, she also hit .256 and scored six runs on the season. Despite that injury and the playoff loss, Russo had no regrets about his first season at the helm. “Walking in, I didn’t know what to expect. As a coach, I just wanted everyone to do their best,” said Russo. “I think we had a really great season. Making it to the playoffs was the first goal, and we achieved that.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Falcons excel at next level Freedom High School’s baseball team made a mighty run from 2007-09, first knocking off Clayton Valley and De La Salle to win the BVAL in 2008 and taking the NCS championship crown in 2009. Several of those players still play college ball, and three of them met on the field recently as the San Francisco State Gators clashed with the Stanislaus State Warriors to complete their regular season in the California Collegiate Athletic Association. San Francisco State outfielder Dustin Wold (class of 2008) compiled a .352 batting average and a .451 slugging percentage, leading the Gators in both categories. Wold is scheduled to graduate with a

business degree in 2012. Wold’s teammate Branden Petrangelo (class of 2008) led the Gators with 55 strikeouts in 90 and a third innings pitched, compiling a 3.89 ERA. He is a junior majoring in criminal justice. Chris Short (class of 2007) is a lefthand pitcher majoring in communications at Stanislaus State. He finished the season pitching 10 consecutive scoreless innings, notching an ERA of 3.78. All three ex-Falcons will play in their senior season next year. The former teammates also played together in Little League and on the East County Maniacs, a travel team, on which they twice won the 18-and-under national championship. – Contributed by Matt Wold

June 25 Pirate Day: Set sail for the high seas of fun at Prewett Park, which will host Scoundrel Pirate shows. A full schedule of special events is available at www.ci.antioch.ca.us/citysvcs/prewett. The recreation department has planned a full slate of camps, including the Coyote Hills Summer Day Camp and Teen Camp, as well as camps for art, cooking, science and drama. The water park will also host camps, such as lifeguard and water polo. Adjacent to the water park is the new Antioch Community Center, which will host a showing of the animated movie “Megamind” on Saturday, July 30 at dusk. Tickets are $5 per family, and people can bring food or drink to enjoy as they watch the movie. Another venue for fun will be Waldie Plaza at First and I streets in downtown Antioch, which will host the free Saturday Summer Concert Series.

Oakley defines itself as a place for families in the heart of the Delta. The city is home to 27 parks perfect for picnics, play dates and plenty of fun, and the city’s Recreation Division hosts a variety of programs to keep kids active this summer. One of Oakley’s most popular summer traditions is Movies in the Plaza – free movie nights when families bring their blankets and lawn chairs to enjoy the latest family features. This summer, “Despicable Me” (June 11), “How to Train Your Dragon” (July 23) and “Toy Story 3” (August 13) will be shown at dusk at Civic Center Plaza, 3231 Main St. Families are welcome to bring their own snacks, but goodies will be available for purchase if you can’t resist your candy cravings. The Oakley Recreation Division also hosts a variety of camps throughout the summer. Summer Blaze Day Camp returns Monday, June 13. As part of the day camp, kids meet up at a local park and spend the day enjoying games, arts and crafts. The camp, which runs June 13-24 and July 5-15 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., costs $9 per day or $40 for a weekly punch card. For kids who like to build, Lego

Summer Camp is the place to be. Students will learn new Lego techniques from experienced Lego builder and teacher Wes Pitter. Children will build creatively and cooperatively, exploring new ways to build using their favorite themes, such as castles and cars or Star Wars and Indiana Jones. Classes for 6-8-year-olds runs June 6-10, and classes for 9-11-yearolds runs June 13-17. Classes are held from 9 a.m. to noon at the Ironhouse Elementary School Library. Fees are $150 for Oakley residents and $160 for non-residents. Oakley Recreation also offers a variety of classes over the summer for kids and adults. Kids classes include art and cartooning as well as karate, while adult classes include ballroom dancing, fencing and knitting.

Summer from page 1B “The idea for the program was to come up with a way to familiarize everyone with our parks, and not necessarily just the biggest or the newest ones,” said Recreation Supervisor Barbie Gary. “Our whole department worked to come up with a way to introduce people to all our parks, because people tend to just visit the ones near their homes. We wanted to offer them a way to hit some of the other parks in the area as well.” And to make it a little more fun, the parks and recreation department has attached themes to some of the locations, such as Dog Day Afternoon and Dig up Some Bones (that’s dinosaur bones) at Kaleidoscope Park. The activities are family-friendly and free. On June 12, the first event kicks off with Story Walk at Sunset Park; a scavenger hunt event in which pages from a children’s book are placed on stakes along a half-mile path in the park. Children will read the first page of the story and move on to the next marker and read that page, continuing on until the full loop is made. “This is something that would be perfect for moms’ groups looking for a fun, outdoor event,” said Gary. “Each week there will be an opportunity to enjoy a theme, such as Play Today the Bocce Ball Way at Apple Hill Park, or Splash Play at Blue Goose Park. Some of the events are staffed and some aren’t, but they are all free and work very well, we think, with the theme of Brentwood as a Playful City.” For more information on the Playport to Fun events, log on to www.ci.brentwood. ca.us.

Planet Beach featured on national TV The folks at Planet Beach Brentwood Contempo Spa got a chance this week to not only greet their customers, but to say “Good Morning America” as well. Owner Kevin Nunes’ business was visited by the crew of the famed morning TV show as part of a segment on weight management. Specifically, reporter Becky Worley wanted to talk about Planet Beach’s cellulite-reduction capsule call the SlimCapsule. “It’s cutting-edge technology that’s revolutionizing the weight-management industry,” Nunes told The Press. It’s certainly not every day that the national media shows an interest in Brentwood, but in this case, they didn’t have a choice: Nunes said Brentwood has the only SlimCapsule in the state. To learn more about the SlimCapsule, Planet Beach, or what it’s like to be on national TV, you can contact Kevin at 4530 Balfour Road, Suite A or call 925-634-9826.

Welcome, Sawyer awyer Kathleen Whitford was born in a hurry on May 5, 2011 at 5:05 p.m. at the Deer Valley Kaiser in Antioch.

KAHLER-BUTLER Debra Lynn Kahler-Butler May 14, 1960-April 3, 2011 Brentwood resident Debra was killed in an accident on the Family Farm on April 3. She was born in Bakersfield and grew up in Pleasanton before moving to Sunol. She was married to Cory Butler at the Little Brown Church of Sunol on its 100th anniversary on Sept. 7, 1985. Debra and Cory moved to Brentwood in 1986. A fearless businesswoman and entrepreneur, she ran her own interiorscaping business, Ornamental Plant Works, which she founded at age 17. She was involved in several other business ventures, including her U-Pick cherry orchard on the farm. Debra touched many during her life. A celebration of her life was held on April 30 at The Neighborhood Church in Brentwood. Appropriately, it was a standingroom-only crowd of close to 300. She leaves behind her husband of 25 years, Cory; children, Ethan, Ellie and Sam; parents, Richard and Diane Kahler

of Sonoma; sisters, Susan Kahler of Oakland, Kasey Holman of Houston, and Joni Schaefer of New Canaan, Conn.; and nieces and nephews, Abby, Mason, Lauren, Christopher and Spencer. She also leaves behind many close friends and hundreds of customers she worked with for the past 34 years, who viewed her as a friend more than just a vendor. As a way to honor her love and connection to kids at risk, the family requests

that donations be made in Debra’s name to www.youthhomes.org, a group that works with kids who have aged out of the foster care system. All donations in Debra’s name will be used to grow their “community gardens” project. The family would also like to thank all who have done so much to help us through this difficult time, many complete strangers. You have inspired us to pay it forward to others.

Be supplement savvy A walk down the vitamin aisle at your local pharmacy or grocery store can be confusing. How can you know which vitamins are right for you? And how can you differentiate between the quality, purity and potency of products on the shelf? Author and frequent TV guest Suzy Cohen, America’s most trusted pharmacist, understands the confusion you face when choosing vitamins. “A recent study by the National Institutes of Health found that about 50 percent of the U.S. population use dietary supplements, a slight increase from previous studies,” Cohen said. “However, most users aren’t aware that all vitamins are not created equal, and you can’t always believe everything printed on a label.” Talk to your physician or pharmacist It’s essential to consult with your medical professional before taking new vitamins. Talk about your goals, your lifestyle, current prescriptions and dietary supplements. He or she can recommend what you need, and in what dosages. “I recommend only brands that meet the highest standards of purity and potency, those that follow rigorous quality testing and verification programs, to ensure that what’s on the label is what’s in the bottle,” says Cohen. Look for the USP Verified Dietary Supplement mark Seek brands that participate in thirdparty verification programs with such organizations as United States Pharmacopeia (USP), which has established federally recognized standards for dietary supplement

quality, purity and potency. The distinctive green and gold mark on a product label assures you that the supplement meets the quality standards you expect. Think twice about chasing the latest headline Sound health advice is generally based on research over time, not a single study. Consider vitamins and minerals for overall health and be wary of results claiming a quick fix, or one study suggesting a certain result. Do your research Visit the American Academy of Family Physicians’ website, www.familydoctor.org, for credible, physician-reviewed information on health and wellness topics such as the role vitamins and supplements play in a healthy, active and balanced lifestyle. • United States Pharmacopeia’s “Choosing a Dietary Supplement” interactive educational tool on www.usp.org/uspverified. • Nature Made, www.naturemade.com, has helpful information, including a new vitamin assessment tool that provides customized vitamin recommendations. Read the label and follow dosage instructions carefully. As with prescriptions, follow the dosage instruction on the label. Look for any warning statements such as combining the supplements with prescriptions or over-the-counter medicines. Be wary of claims that seem too good to be true. Keep these tips in mind and you can walk the vitamin aisle with confidence and make savvy choices with ease. – Courtesy of Family Features
