Brentwood artist mourned Neighborhood by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer The Brentwood arts community has lost a longtime supporter, advocate and friend. Ron Beatty, 78, died May 25 following a prolonged battle with cancer. A Connecticut native, Beatty was the corporate director of security for Rockwell International when he retired in 1997. When he moved to Brentwood in 2000, he became a powerful force for public art, and helped found the Brentwood Arts Commission and the Brentwood Arts Society. And although he called himself a “Sunday afternoon painter,” Beatty’s passion and talent for the visual arts were admired and respected throughout the community. A showing of his work will be held on June 12 at artist Bill Weber’s gallery. “Ron was a very talented artist,” said his wife, Lilly. “But he was also a writer and storyteller. He was so involved in the Brentwood art community because he was an artist himself and had a desire to share that love with his town.” For his ongoing work and dedication to the arts, Beatty was recently named the Brentwood Art Society’s 2010 Artist of the Year. “He was wonderful guy and talented artist,” said friend Jack Gaughan,

who sat on the Brentwood Art Society board with Beatty. “He brought a lot to Brentwood.” But for Brennan Beatty, Ron’s son, the loss of his father means something more. “Dad was fun-loving, educationfocused and a hard worker,” said Brennan. “His nickname was Gus, a name we kids gave him. Before he got into painting, he was a big remodeler. Our vacations were spent at home remodeling the house. He got into tiling and first did a coffee table, then a bar area

and then he got good enough that my mom let him do the kitchen. Our nickname for him was Gus the Grouter, and it stuck. In later years he would use it as a barometer. If we called said “Hi, Gus,” he knew everything was fine. But if we called and said “Hi, Dad,” he knew something was wrong. My dad was an amazing, awesome guy. I loved him very much.” Lilly, who married Beatty five years ago, said that while their time together was brief, it was a match made in heaven: “I knew Ron for seven years and we were married for five. They were wonderful years. His enormous energy kept me going and we shared everything. He was a very loving, considerate and generous man; full of life. I was lucky. We were two peas in a pod.” In addition to Lilly, Beatty leaves behind his children, Brennan, Kevin and Carol; eight grandchildren; three step-children; and seven step-grandchildren. His first wife of 43 years, Velma Jean, died in 2000. Services for Beatty will be held at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Brentwood on Friday, June 4 at 11:30 a.m. Interment will take place in July in Hamden, Conn. In lieu of flowers, the family welcomes contributions to the Brentwood Arts Society. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

cleanup set for Saturday

The next installment of the Antioch Police Department’s Neighborhood Cleanup Program takes place Saturday, June 5 from 9 to 11 a.m. Volunteers should report to the parking lot of the Lone Tree Elementary School, 1931 Mokelumne Drive, where they’ll receive instructions and equipment. The targeted area is within walking distance. Barring inclement weather, future Neighborhood Cleanup events will be scheduled for the first Saturday of the month and will target business and commercial areas as well as residential. The Neighborhood Cleanup Program is a collaborative effort of United Citizens for Better Neighborhoods, community volunteers, the Antioch Police Department Crime Prevention Commission, Neighborhood Watch Program, the City of Antioch Community Development Department, Neighborhood Improvement Services, and the Public Works Department. In the words of an Antioch Police Department press release, “Collectively, ‘We,’ everyone who works and lives in the City of Antioch, can make a difference and improve the quality of life. It’s our community and it’s our chance to make a difference … Neighborhoods free of trash and refuse are inviting, and a clean community instills a sense of community pride.”

HARP and HALO play matchmakers Looking for a new furry friend to welcome into your home? Homeless Animals Response Program (H.A.R.P.) and Homeless Animals’ Lifeline Organization (H.A.L.O.) are participating in a blowout weekend adoption event to place all its dogs and cats in qualified homes as part of Maddie’s Matchmaker Adoptathon. Free adoptions will be offered throughout the weekend at the following locations and times: H.A.R.P. locations: • Saturday, June 12 at PetSmart, 4655 Century Blvd. in Pittsburg from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (dogs and cats). • Sunday, June 13 at PetSmart, 5879 Lone Tree Way in Antioch 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (dogs only). • Sunday, June 13 at Pet Food Express, 5829 Lone Tree Way in Antioch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (cats only). H.A.L.O. locations: • Saturday and Sunday, June 12 and 13 at PetSmart, 5879 Lone Tree Way in Antioch 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. • Saturday and Sunday, June 12 and 13 at H.A.L.O.

ing dog and cat lives by helping to create a nokill nation where all healthy and treatable shelter dogs and cats are guaranteed a loving home. To achieve this goal, Maddie’s Fund is investing its resources in building community collaborations in which animal welfare organizations come together to develop successful models of lifesaving. In an effort to help empty participating shelters, Maddie’s Fund will give the groups $500 for each adoption performed during the two-day event. The foundation hopes to donate more than a half-million dollars. The adoption event is being held to honor the memory of the foundation’s namesake, a miniature Schnauzer named Maddie, to increase awareness of shelter animals and their need for loving homes and to shed light on the tireless efforts of the shelters and adoption guarantee organizations in Alameda and Contra Costa counties that work so hard to save the lives of countless dogs and cats. “It is our hope that by 2015, all healthy and treatable dogs and cats will be saved in the United States,” said Dave Duffield, Maddie’s Fund founder. “We believe that the American people will lead the charge. Maddie’s Fund is investing in the fantastic work being done by

animal shelters and adoption guarantee organizations to help achieve the goal. Events such as Maddie’s Matchmaker Adoptathon provide visibility for this very important cause.” Those wishing to adopt an animal must have a fully fenced yard. Renters will need a note from landlords on their letterhead. No adoptions will be granted to families with children under 5 unless the pet’s history with small children is known. If adopters currently own a dog, they must book an appointment for the potential dog and current dog to meet. H.A.R.P. is an all volunteer animal welfare organization dedicated to ending dog and cat overpopulation through community education, spay and neuter programs, and adoptions. H.A.L.O is run strictly by volunteers who give their own time, money and homes to foster animals until they find good homes. All H.A.L.O pets get spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. H.A.L.O. is also known for taking in many special-needs dogs and cats, paying for their medical needs and finding them loving homes.

Special-ed program feels budget pinch by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer As the parent of a special-education student, life for Kasey Harvey has never been easy. “Getting Devyn up for school used to be an epic battle,” said Harvey of her bipolar daughter. “She’s a sensitive child and kids can be so cruel. One day I picked her up from school because another student had spit on her. You can’t imagine what it’s like to pick up your child and see a huge gob of spit on her shoulder. Talk about heartbreaking.” But that trend began to change last year when Harvey enrolled her daughter in the Matrix program at Freedom High School. “She’s like a different child,” said Harvey. “She’s the first one up in the morning. She’s cheerful, confident and successful, and it’s the Matrix program that has made all the difference.” Matrix programs are special-education classes for students who find it hard to learn in a traditional classroom setting. Matrix classes are small, and tailored to accommodate and enhance students’ individual needs while keeping them on the diploma track for graduation.

VINEYARDS UPDATE Brentwood has two main active-adult communities—Summerset and Trilogy at the Vineyards. Trilogy is the newer of the two, and is still building and selling homes. They opened to much anticipation and fanfare a couple of years ago. Since then, the general real estate market has taken a tumble, and there have been rumors about the viability of Trilogy. I checked in with Dan O’Brien, the Area President, to get the real story. How many homes are completed and occupied so far? We have 101 homes occupied, with another 25 homes sold and under various stages of construction. How are sales? Sales are exploding. We doubled our 2008 sales in 2009. We are on track to doubling our 2009 sales in 2010. The last time we sold as many homes as we just sold in March was June 2007. What is the status of the clubhouse? We will grand open the new member’s club in June. It is safe to say that there is nothing like it in the entire Bay Area. It is our best yet. Watch for the announcements.

How is the infrastructure coming along? We should have the last phase of Vineyards Parkway complete by summer. This will connect the community to Marsh Creek Rd. and the Bypass. How have you responded to the changing market? We have responded to the downturn by offering more, not less. We have introduced the Ultra Package which includes a 3KW photovoltaic system (solar power), Energy Star refrigerator, washer and dryer, solar-powered attic vent, tankless water heaters, satellite-controlled irrigation controller among other items at an unbelievable value. What about the rumors of you losing your funding and reducing staff? Laughable. We are backed by one of the largest pension funds in the world and we are adding staff to meet the demand.

But due to budget constraints, the program – which also offers classes at Heritage and Liberty high schools – will be consolidated. And while Devyn and the other students at Freedom will remain in place for another season, the following year the program will be shifted over to Heritage. “I’ve spoken to all the parents in the class (at Freedom) and we are working to find a good solution to the transition,” said John Saylor, director of special services for the Liberty Union High School District. “We wanted to make sure that we are giving the highest-quality instruction to these students that we can, and most of the parents are very happy (about the changes).” But others such as Harvey, who credit the successes of their children to the program and its teacher – who it has been announced, won’t be returning to Freedom next year – feel differently. “The turnaround for Devyn and the other students is due in large part to their teacher,” said Harvey. “She has created an environment that challenges and nurtures her special students, building on their assets and not punishing their deficits.

Excelsior club promotes tolerance by Ruth Roberts

Founding members of Excelsior Middle School’s GSA Club pose for a photo during one of their meetings last year.

Staff Writer Their watchwords are “Don’t ask, please tell,” but for members of the Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) at Excelsior Middle School, the phrase is less about sexual orientation than it is about tolerance, acceptance and support. “You know middle school can be a tumultuous time for kids, and oftentimes name-calling that is seen as harmless fun can hit the core of a young person, and that’s not OK,” said Byron Union School Superintendent Eric Prater. “From my perspective, the GSA is an opportunity for our school to promote intolerance of bullying on any level.” Founded at the end of the school session last year, the GSA club at Excelsior was born of a desire by students to participate in the National Day of Silence: an annual event designed to bring attention to anti-gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender behavior. When teacher Matt Colbert noticed that some students wanted to continue on with the Day of Silence theme by forming an on-campus club, he offered to serve as the GSA faculty advisor. “I’ve been teaching for 21 years and this is easily the best thing I’ve been a part of,” said Colbert. “This is not a political group – we make no assumptions. It’s just a place to come and feel safe and socialize. These are an amazing group of

kids.” And it’s a growing group. At the beginning of the school year, one of GSA President Demi Neal’s goals was to increase the club’s membership. By the end of May, that membership had expanded from 13 to more than 20. But the changes, according to Demi, should be expressed in more than numbers. “I’ve seen a major difference in the attitudes on campus since the club began,” said Demi. “This (GSA) is about more than being gay; it’s more about non-hate and acceptance and feeling safe no matter who you are.” Haley Rollins, now a freshman at Liberty High School and one of the orig-

inal members of the Excelsior GSA, said that when the program first began, there was a contingent of students who didn’t support the club. “At first lots of people thought it (GSA) was dumb, but that’s exactly why we wanted to start it: to put an end to stereotypes and intolerance,” said Haley, who is straight. “I have lots of family members who are gays and lesbians and I don’t care. I love them just the same. And a lot of other students (at Excelsior) felt the same way. We felt very strongly about who we are, and who we love, and about acceptance.” see Tolerance page 16A

Roy Ghiggeri, Assistant Superintendent of Administrative Services for the Liberty Union High School District, will retire this month after 36 years of work for the district. Ghiggeri was born and raised in Brentwood, and comes from a local and prominent farming family. After graduating from Liberty High School, he attended the University of the Pacific on a four-year basketball scholarship and earned his bachelor’s degree in history and physical education. Ghiggeri received his teaching credential, but was planning to go into the family farming business until education leaders Lou Bronzan and Jack Ferrill convinced him to try teaching and coaching. During his 36-year career in education, Ghiggeri has held many positions in the district, including teacher, coach and athletic director, plus a long list of administrative titles culminating in assistant superintendent of administrative services. His office is lined with plaques thanking him for his devoted service – among them a plaque commemorating his induction into the LUHSD Athletic Hall of Fame, a distinction he shares with his son, Joseph. After teaching in the Antioch Unified School District, Ghiggeri’s wife, Angela, now teaches in the LUHSD Adult Education Program. Both of their children graduated from Liberty High School, and his daughter, Stacie, teaches in the Antioch district. Joseph works for the family at the G&S Farms. The Ghiggeris have no detailed plans for how they will spend their time in the near future, but look forward to the opportunities that the next chapter of their lives will bring.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Reintroducing CalHFA “While the financial market turmoil continues and California faces unique challenges economically, there is perhaps no more important time for our agency to work on behalf of families statewide,” said Steve Spears, acting Executive Director of the California Housing Finance Agency, otherwise known as CalHFA. Since the agency’s creation in 1975, CalHFA has helped over 150,000 California families realize their dream of homeownership by using over $18 billion in non-taxpayer funds to secure low rate fixed mortgages, as well as offer down payment assistance programs. Now, in 2010, CalHFA is once again putting its money where its mouth is and bringing back their most popular down payment assistance program to date…the California Homebuyer’s Downpayment Assistance Program. More commonly referred to as CHDAP, this junior or second loan/lien program, financed through voter-approved Propositions 46 and 1C, has been the most successful down payment assistance program in CalHFA’s history. Over the years it has provided more than 31,000 California families with the assistance needed to buy their first home and is once again becoming available after an 11 month hiatus. The program itself offers up to 3% of the purchase price, or the home’s appraised value - whichever is less - to the buyer for either assistance with their down payment, or to help with closing costs. Although the potential purchaser would first have to bring in their own 3% to match the funds being lent, the CHDAP loan has no repayment schedule until the new owner sells or refinances their home.

JUNE 4, 2010

EDUCATION

So what first loan out there can be paired with the CHDAP second lien program in order to allow the buyer to only bring in 3% of their own funds? For first time buyers – defined as a person(s) who has not had an ownership interest in their primary residence during the previous three years – CalHFA has also put in place (as of June 8, 2009) its new Cal30 program. This first mortgage allows for 95% financing at a 30 year fixed rate of 5.125%. Also, as an added benefit to the buyer, the Cal30 program allows for a maximum combined loan-to-value of 102% of the purchase price. What does that mean and how does it help you? Buying a home for $200,000 would result in a principal and interest payment of $1034.53 at 5.125% with an initial cash investment of $6000, 3% of the purchase price accordingly. The Cal30 principal loan amount would be $190,000 (95% of the purchase price), plus your $6000 down payment, plus another $6000 (or 3%) from the state via CHDAP to cover the remainder of the down payment, and assist with closing costs. According to Executive Director Steve Spear, “Because of the decline in real estate prices, the number of Californians who can now afford a home is twice what it was at this time last year,” now would be a great time to get pre-approved for this program and start looking for a new home.

We are trying to include the rigors of the program along with the high quality of instruction that

these students need. We want what is best for them in the long run, and we believe this is it.” Faulkner sympathized with the families of Freedom’s Matrix students, but said his eye is on the bigger prize – graduation: “Parents want the emotional support for their kids of course, and so do we. But we also want the high school diploma to go with it. And those families want that, too. So if you want to do that, we have to make some changes.” Saylor agreed: “We understand that this is an issue charged with emotions, but it’s not a punishment. We want what’s best for the students, too.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Tolerance from page 8A The GSA was formed, said Prater, along the same lines as other Excelsior school clubs – under the education code and existing school board policy. The GSA meets once a week at lunchtime and for the occasional after-school activity and charity event. This year, the group spearheaded a food drive with the Brentwood-based Delta Community Services organization to provide needy families with groceries. But the group hasn’t been without its share of controversy. “There have been some conversations about the group by some parents who see it as a potential recruiting tool,” said Colbert. “But I have to say that it has always been a civil dis-

On the other hand, I have had far more parents tell me how happy they are to have this club on campus.” “One of the things I liked about the club at Excelsior,” said Haley, who is also a member of the Liberty High GSA chapter, “is that it is a positive thing. I really felt like we were making a difference and bringing a positive aspect to campus.” Colbert agreed that the club’s purpose is purely positive and that the GSA is making an impact on students both gay and straight. “I believe that the tide has turned and ‘gay’ is no longer a bad word on campus,” said Colbert. “It’s been a ride, and I’d definitely say we’re breaking ground.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Measure F area could benefit Antioch Editor: I had the honor to be a member of the Antioch City Council from 2000 through 2008 and I continue to speak out on issues facing our city and East County. Antioch is in serious trouble. Mayor Jim Davis recently announced that our city might be on the verge of bankruptcy. He mentioned the real possibility that we might not be able to make payroll within the next six months. We’ve already seen deep cuts in our police staffing as well as throughout city government. Our reserves have been depleted. When we were growing, Antioch avoided these problems by bringing in revenue and new investment. Unfortunately for us, this effectively stopped in 2006, before the downturn in the housing market, which began in 2007. Ever since we stopped growing, our financial situation has become worse. In 2005 we passed Measure K by a nearly 60-percent vote. I was proud to strongly endorse this initiative, which allowed us to bring Roddy Ranch into Antioch. It also gave us our own urban limit line, which the voters of Antioch control. We had had many fights with the county over land planning. Creating our own line put us in charge. This brings up Brentwood’s Measure F. The initiative area borders both Brentwood and Antioch. Currently, it’s within Brentwood’ sphere of influence (SOI). However, I believe a majority of Antioch residents would vote to annex this land if the people of Brentwood don’t want it. The extra funding it would provide would help us enormously with our budget issues. Additionally, this area

would also build roads and utilities we need to allow our growth to continue in the southern part of our city. In fact, implementation of the Roddy Ranch development requires other areas to help pay for infrastructure. We know that a sphere of influence can change. We saw it when the City of Pittsburg successfully got LAFCO to change the SOI for the Baker property from Antioch to Pittsburg; and then Pittsburg annexed the Baker property. The Baker property is now developed and known as Century Plaza and Delta Gateway. Its sales and property tax revenues go to Pittsburg instead of Antioch. I can’t vote in the Measure F election. But many friends in Brentwood have asked me what I thought about the chances of the site coming into Antioch. Although I can’t predict the future, the bottom line is that it would complement Antioch’s plans for Roddy Ranch and FUA1, where Kaiser Hospital is located. Arne Simonsen Antioch

Measure F not a problem solver Editor: This letter is in response to Ms. Dieteman’s from the May 28 Brentwood Press. I am a senior at Heritage High School and I too have experienced the awful congestion and traffic that comes with attending Heritage. For four years I’ve driven to and from school in insane traffic, and yet, nothing has been done. However, I would like to encourage voters to vote No on measure F. If measure F passes, the traffic conditions will not be alleviated, they will only worsen. Brentwood is a commuter community. Heritage is at it’s full capacity. So why add 1,300 new homes and families into the mix? It doesn’t matter if the development is constructed now or later, measure F is poor planning. Sure, the traffic will be alleviated when American Avenue is extended and Balfour is widened, but when the housing development is finished and homes are occupied, we will be back to square one. The traffic itself is an effect of poor planning. I would like to know who decided it would be a fabulous idea to build a middle school right behind a high school! There are some days where Adams does not have school but Heritage does. It’s almost astounding how little traffic there is on these days. Poor planning doesn’t fix poor planning; it only creates more problems. On top of that, traffic is worsened by traffic violators. People will literally stop in the middle of a lane where traffic is supposed to flow so they can make a lame attempt to merge into the turning lane for American Avenue. Though drivers believe they’re cutting past all the traffic, they’re simply adding more to it. Not only that, but their violations make Balfour road extremely unsafe. It’s not even teen drivers that are driving in this manner it’s parents too. We need police officers in this

area. The only time I’ve ever seen a police officer on the way to school was the first few days of each school year. Now that is ridiculous. Brentwood doesn’t need more housing. What Brentwood needs is businesses - people don’t want to live in places where they cannot find jobs. However, the land Measure F proposes we build on is not an adequate space for buildings of any kind, whether it be housing, retail, etc. for obvious reasons. Measure F supporters argue that if measure F does not pass, then nothing will ever be done to alleviate the traffic on Balfour. This is incredibly narrow minded. There are always other solutions. Ms.Dieteman, you are under the impression that Measure F will solve the problems on American Avenue and Balfour. You are mistaken. Measure F doesn’t solve any problems. It masks the current ones and creates more for the future. Vote No on measure F. Kiley Yeaman Brentwood

No on Measure F is a must Editor: Measure F and its supporters have persistently threatened that Antioch will take control over the proposed area if we don’t pass Measure F. Untrue. This land remains in Brentwood’s sphere of influence even with a No vote. The letters from the three LAFCO commissioners to the Brentwood Press were designed to intimidate voters as a favor to the Measure F campaign – an inappropriate and unethical act. The chairman of LAFCO, Martin McNair, released a statement at the Brentwood City Council meeting on Tuesday, May 25: “I’m upset and disappointed by the letters of the three LAFCO members. They were entirely out of line and they do not represent official LAFCO policy.” Just as disturbing was watching our current city leaders who support this measure stand by silently while those they represent were so disingenuously misled. Fixing American Avenue and improving Balfour Road will not solve the traffic problems. The same stoplight, stop signs and poorly designed high school parking lot will remain unchanged. Expecting people to drive an additional mile around the loop, deal with another proposed school site, 3,000 more cars, an additional 1,350 more students, let alone the overflow students that will be added to the elementary school, only compounds the problem. In addition, there are no plans in the near future to improve Deer Valley Road. 4,153 already-approved homes within our city limit translates into 12,000 new residents to be absorbed into our city. Measure F’s binding developer agreement guarantees up to 1,300 more homes, adding another 4,000 residents. And still funds will be lacking to widen the Highway 4 Bypass. Now 16,000 new residents will require access to the bypass with no improvements in sight. Measure F states that their jobs and sports-facility contributions will be “in lieu”

of having to participate in the city’s Residential Growth Management Program (RGMP). All developer projects in Brentwood require contributions that improve our infrastructure above and beyond what is required in developer fees through the RGMP. Measure F’s “in lieu” contribution toward improvements is only about 10 percent of what would be required of them if they did have to abide by the RGMP. What a huge discrepancy. In addition, the jobs contribution is vague and barely defined, while the sports-facility contribution does not guarantee that the facility will be built. Measure F disregards our General Plan for this area and rewrites it to their vision and profit margin. Their plan doubles the number of homes to 1,300 and decreases the open space by two-thirds of the original plan. Brentwood already has 4,153 new homes approved to be built, approximately 2,000 homes in some stage of default, 1,922 rental homes registered with the city as well as nondistressed homes on the market. Adding an additional 1,300 homes to this inventory will not improve property values. Don’t set a precedent for developer control over our city. Vote No on Measure F. Peggy Bridges Brentwood

Protect Brentwood Editor: After reading Ralph Strauss’ letter to the editor, I reviewed facts, removed myself from the emotional debate and considered what we may really be facing if we do not approve Measure F. Antioch desires Measure F to fail so it can bring both sides of Balfour into Antioch. Why? The Roddy Ranch area, just west of Measure F at Deer Valley, was brought in by Measure K five years ago, but Antioch cannot provide the needed infrastructure funds to develop that area. There are not enough homes to provide infrastructure funds on its own. Just like Measure K, Antioch must and will have another measure for the north side of Balfour and willing to include the Measure F area if that area is rejected by Brentwood. It doesn’t have to cost Antioch anything and that city at bankruptcy desperately needs the taxes and fees. Follow the facts: Antioch must bring sewer from Hillcrest Avenue, water from Kaiser hospital and improve Deer Valley Road before Roddy Ranch can be built. Sewer alone is probably over $12 million, water is about $6 million and Deer Valley Road improvement is probably over $20 million. If Antioch is broke and Roddy Ranch developers do not have enough home fees to pay these infrastructure funds, the only other choice is more development with a new Measure. More Antioch homes in this area will bring those needed funds. Roddy Ranch already has maps, the north side of Balfour is being planned and see Letters page 20A

Letters from page 18A Antioch would prefer both sides of Balfour in a measure to Antioch. Antioch has passed one measure while Brentwood rejected one and Antioch is providing its future control while Brentwood may reject plans. These areas will be developed, if not by Brentwood, then by Antioch, and LAFCO will respect either Antioch or Brentwood residents’ vote. Do you think Antioch developers are going to care about Brentwood residents? No. Will a measure legally take precedence over any MOU between cities? Yes. Will there be more homes built in the Antioch plan than in Measure F? Yes. (Antioch’s average homes per acre is 4.5, creating 3,300 homes in the Measure F area next to Deer Ridge and another 3,800 across Balfour next to Shadow Lakes.) Will Measure F area remain in the Brentwood sphere of influence if rejected twice? No. Will cheaper homes and apartments to immediately compete with depressed probably be allowed in an Antioch measure so they can immediately build? Yes. If you were a landowner in Measure F and rejected by Brentwood twice, would you probably choose Antioch? Yes. Can Antioch afford to wait? No. Is a person lying if they say this can’t or probably won’t happen? Yes. Follow the facts and review the circumstances Antioch is facing. Do not let “opinions and lies” from the opposition lure you into thinking that a rejection of Measure F will not destroy what made Brentwood your choice to live. Every Brentwood voter must

vote Yes on Measure F and protect Brentwood. Alex Sanabria Brentwood

Look out for the iceberg Editor: The opponent leadership of Measure F is a self-appointed captain of the Titanic in a desperate, selfish race to win personal recognition. Their negative, lying race campaign is disgraceful and has deceived a number of good people. They have total disregard for the future of any crew or passengers. The crew in this story is present and past leaders of Brentwood; the passengers are the citizens of Brentwood. Both groups are being ignored or openly lied to while being carried full speed ahead with illusions that hold only disastrous consequences. This is not “The Love Boat.” A negative vote is just one more iceberg in an ocean of control. Why would you let this group, almost devoid of leaders or captains of anything, steer your passengers into disastrous waters, against the recommendation of the crew of Brentwood? This is a direction that will leave the passengers of Brentwood drowning in an ocean of Antioch takeover. If this Titanic sinks, there will not be any life boats to save you or rescue your ship to change the history. A second rejection of this area will bring the coldest invasion in Brentwood’s history. Our boundaries, control and any choice this area will be frozen from us. You can change the course of this ship by voting Yes on Measure F. Carolyn Houston Brentwood

We do have alternatives Editor: I have read those favoring Measure F base their approval on the possible remedies for the traffic problems at Balfour and American Avenue; many simply because they feel no one else has put an alternative on the table to fix this intersection. So let’s examine Measure F’s solutions. First, Measure F’s proponents’ own campaign literature states: “If homes are built” or “this is assuming they’re ever approved.” Their own Web site adds: “There is no guarantee that any development will be built.” If fact, they are on record saying that housing starts are at least five years away. Cut to the chase: no homes, no roads. Why should we have to wait? Second, because Measure F contains an imbedded development agreement, “If” housing is never built, which is a major possibility for at least the next 5 to 10 years, American Avenue can never be extended. Plus, conditions within the development agreement permit the development (road improvements) to wait up to 20 years! Why should we have to wait? Third, as much of this discussion has centered on housing, it seems their 35-acre commercial plan has been quietly pushed to the back burner. Do you realize that while they wait for the housing slump to correct during the next five to 10 years, they could just go ahead and develop their commercial site? This part of the development does not in any way require the extension of American Avenue, and once again, making us have to see Letters page 22A

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

HAVE YOU RUINED YOUR CORPORATE STATUS? The primary purpose of setting up an LLC or Corporation is to separate your company’s liabilities from your personal assets. That is, you don’t want to lose your home over a bad business deal. However, if the Courts think that you have created a “sham” company that really doesn’t operate legitimately, they will “pierce the corporate veil” and go after your personal assets. Take this test to see if you should make some corrections to how you do business. 1. How Do You Sign Your Contracts? 2. Do You know what a Statement of Information is? 3. If you made no profit last year, do you owe taxes? 4. Have you paid your house payment directly from your business checking account? 5. Do you need corporate minutes? The answers: 1. No matter how you receive a contract for signing, your corporate name should always be in the signature line, and your signature should be preceded by the word “By”, and you must always include your title when signing. Otherwise, you might be personally guaranteeing the contract unintentionally. This defeats the purpose of why you want a corporation. 2. Every year you must file a new Statement of Information with the Secretary of State whether you are an LLC or a Corporation. The fees are different, but and at present LLC statements must be mailed in, but they are required, and if you don’t file them timely, the Secretary of State will eventually suspend your company. 3. Every LLC or corporation is required to pay $800 per year in California for the privilege of being a separate entity, whether you made money or not. The amount is lower in other states, but if you do business here, you will need to qualify in

California to do business, and then you are subject to the tax. 4. “Commingling” of funds could subject you to having your corporation or LLC deemed a “sham”. Then you could become personally liable for the Company’s debts. In small businesses, owners often think it’s a pain in the neck to keep separate bank accounts, or write a check to yourself from one account to another, especially if you are the only owner. But it is important to keep the business separate from your personal expenses. 5. Yes, you need to do yearly minutes if you’re a corporation except in limited circumstances. LLC’s are not required to do yearly minutes. Some companies do the bare minimum, others use the minutes for public relations to show a potential purchaser how the company has grown from year to year. The above 5 issues are the bare minimum in running a corporation or LLC. The laws are constantly changing so check with your local business attorney for updates to these basic rules. Contact our office if you would like to know your status.

Letters from page 20A wait. So, do we have any alternatives? Brentwood had no problem finding the millions of dollars to build their new city offices. If the council can locate funding for where they work, why haven’t they put in an effort to provide funding for a road extension? The cost of City Hall was projected to be twice the winning bid. I am sure in today’s labor market, the cost of this road extension is much less than indicated by city staff. The Vasco Road Improvement Committee and Contra Costa County have worked years to make significant and permanent improvements, only to be stalled by a lack of funding. However, through the joint efforts of city, counties, state and federal agencies, they recently received millions of dollars to correct and improve a section of the roadway that has claimed many lives. Once again, why hasn’t the city employed a similar joint effort to obtain the funding to extend this road? “If there is a will, there is a way.” A majority of the City Council, previous mayors and council members, and developers, all approve this measure. Most are also responsible for the overbuilding that took place in this city. I think we all know, based on what has happened in the real estate market in the past three to four years, that as a result of their approvals, we the residents have suffered the most. We do have alternatives. Don’t vote them away. Al Del Grande Brentwood

Thanks for supporting Measure F Editor: To all the past and present Brentwood

mayors, city councils, planning commissioners, city managers, department heads and city employees for the 25 years that I have had the privilege of watching you lead this city with your foresight, and for the hundreds of meeting you have attended: Thank you. To all the past and present school boards, superintendents, principals and teachers, your vision for the education for all has kept Brentwood schools ahead of the curve. Thank you. Lastly I wish to commend the community groups, workers and volunteers that are positive and planned for the city present and future. Thank you. Sadly, it has been my great regret that you have endured the negative letters to the papers about the poor planning of streets, the traffic and schools, especially around Heritage and Adams. Most informed and knowledgeable citizens of Brentwood: know it was not poor planning, but the political thoughtlessness of the County Board of Supervisors in 2000 when they decided without any thought to redraw the urban limit line. Their short-sightedness is the foundation that led to unintended consequences that we see today at American and Balfour roads. They did not think about the safety of children or future traffic that has caused the problems you and those who are in support of Measure F are trying to help solve. They did not think about the hundreds of thousands of dollars that had been spent over-sizing the utilities for that part of the city. You have had the strength to stand up for your visions and withstand the criticisms of the NIMBYs of the past, but you still planned for the good of the city. (Don’t you

wonder where all today’s NIMBYs and No on everything people would be living if you had given in when their houses and schools were being planned?) You have made Brentwood the city we want to be a part of. Thanks to you who are supporting Measure F. Thank you. To you that have not decided, Yes or No: You might want to ask the No people what are their plans for the future. Have they ever done anything constructive for Brentwood? If yes, what? What are their plans to build new streets and help solve the traffic problem and make it safer (where will they get the money)? What would happen in case of a disaster? What school site will they have when the students from Antioch’s Roddy Ranch and other areas start replacing your children at Krey and Ron Nunn schools? Ask if they have plans for more parks and extra sports fields. Do they plan on spending their money for scholarships, creating jobs, job retraining, paying for extra police services, or paramedics? If they say yes – which they won’t – will they say when? Please consider the future of Brentwood as you make your decision regarding Measure F. Lee Hancock Discovery Bay

What they’re not telling you Editor: My family and I have owned property that is part of the Measure F initiative for 45 years and I have lived on this property for 35

years. I am one of the five landowners supporting Measure F, as I am directly affected by the future planning of this area. It is the main reason I got involved in Measure F. I would like Brentwood to control this area’s future. A Yes vote on Measure F would secure this area’s future and allow the City of Brentwood to plan its development. I would also like to see Brentwood benefit from building permits and sales tax revenues, property taxes, jobs, sports fields and safe roadways for our schools and community. At the end of the day, opposition of Measure F is offering none of these benefits. What they are offering you is something they don’t have control of. The opposition of Measure F wants to save “our green hills.” What they’re not telling you is that these hills are privately owned and have been slated for development for over 20 years. I understand the concept of “saving our green hills,” but I think many people assume these hills are somehow controlled by the City of Brentwood, because it is in the city’s sphere of influence. In reality, these green hills are outside the city limits. Brentwood has no control over them. What you will really be saving these hills for with a No vote on Measure F is the ability for Antioch or the county to acquire to develop these hills as they see fit. Is that what you really want to save these hills for? Someone else? If the voters of Brentwood decide not the acquire this property into their city, the voters will have as much control in the future over these “green hills” as they do now – which is zero. The opposition has taken issue in the see Letters page 23A

development agreement embedded in Measure F. This agreement provides for a very well-thought-out plan consistent with current Brentwood development. It provides many amenities over and above what is normally required for development projects. Proposed densities for this area would be among the lowest in all of Brentwood. If there were no development agreement in the initiative, I am sure the opposition would be screaming even louder about the unknowns and the possibility of high-density condos or apartments consuming the area. Your voting decision will carry great weight for the future of this area and who ultimately develops it. I urge you to vote Yes on Measure F – for the future of Brentwood. Mark Harris Brentwood

Gratifying campaign Editor: My name is Casey O’Hara. I have had the great fortune to work with the Yes on Measure F campaign. We have participated in the door-to-door canvassing, presentations to local agencies and nonprofit organizations, had a presence at our weekly Farmers’ Mar-

ket and had several parade walks through the streets of Brentwood. We all have learned a great deal about the election process and how involved you must be to be a real part of your community. Every member of our team was very passionate about their own reasons for supporting Measure F and it has been a wonderful experience for all of us to discuss our findings at the end of the day. We would like to ask Brentwood residents to vote Yes on Measure F on June 8. And we think “Peggie Rocks!” Casey O’Hara Brentwood

Walmart’s labored propaganda Editor: “Free us from the grasp of greedy organized labor.” So said a Walmart supporter at the Antioch Planning Commission meeting, according to your May 28 article. The article goes on to describe the numerous Walmart employees who attended this meeting to show their approval of this company and their practices. So I ask myself if the folks at Raley’s and Safeway, where I shop, are included in this “greedy organized” group, since they are said to average $22 per hour instead of the $12 per hour paid to non-union Walmart workers? I want to believe that these Walmart employees really do not think that they would be overpaid if they were making $22 per hour. More likely, they were encouraged to attend this meeting to protect and defend their existing jobs. I doubt that a worker making $12 or $22 per hour and is the only income earner in a family can aspire to own a home or maintain one if they somehow happen to own it. Certainly, whether one owns or rents, they had better have a second job or live with another wage earner if they have children. see Letters page 24A

Letters from page 23A The official U.S. poverty level for a family of five is $25,790, which is more than the $24,960 annual salary of the $12 per hour Walmart worker (assuming they work a 40-hour week). So let’s be honest. Walmart wages may be quite acceptable if you are supplementing the family income, you are someone else’s dependent, or have another source of income. Otherwise, you cannot independently survive on your own if you aspire for more that basic food, clothing and shelter. I suggest that the person who felt shackled by “greedy organized labor” take a look at the pay of all Contra Costa County workers that are listed on the Contra Costa Times Web site. Eighty percent of the 10,637 compensated workers made more than $24,960 in 2009. It appears that those making less than this Walmart threshold were not full-time county employees or did not work the entire year. I don’t think greed, speciously characterized as the motive of supermarket workers, is an exclusive attribute of organized labor. Case in point: the four heirs of the Walmart family have been able to collectively amass a fortune of $90 billion through the labor of its non-union employees. On the bright side, these underpaid workers know where to go to buy cheap goods. For the record, neither I nor anyone in my immediate family is a member of a union. Richard Ahern Oakley

ously accused us of a “sleazy push poll” have paid high school students to knock on doors in Shadow Lakes this past week. Curiously, their message is similar to the very content they told everyone we said: “We have to vote Yes on the measure to prevent Antioch from building Section 8 housing.” When asked follow-up questions, they are unable to respond. Coincidence? I doubt it. A false statement, definitely! If you hold the urban limit line by voting No, no one can build on that land – no one. Brentwood has the area in its General Plan, one of the LAFCO criteria for deciding whose sphere of influence it is, and we meet the criteria of proximity of services. Antioch’s General Plan says the land is in our General Plan, so both general plans would have to be amended in a public process, taking years, plus Brentwood would never let Antioch take that land. No one can just apply for this land, as the proponents imply. We don’t have to accept this developerdriven initiative – they are pushing their own plans on our town, overriding our own General Plan. If their plan stood on its own merits, why have they spent $279,972 to date to promote it and why do they have to distribute threatening language mailers to our voters? It’s obvious: it’s a terrible idea for Brentwood. Adding 1,300 homes will further drive down housing values, which have fallen another 3.8 percent as of March, 2010, and will inundate services and infrastructure. Don’t be fooled by glossy mailers of piein-the-sky promises or knocks at your door to make your decision. Vote No on Measure F see Letters page 25A

Don’t torch fire protection Editor: Someone needs to pull the fire alarm! The May 21 Brentwood Press article “Fire station closures on horizon” reported that East Contra Costa Fire Protection District is thinking about shutting the door on fire stations due to a local budget problem. The burning idea of closing fire stations to make ends meet is an idea that needs to be put out. It would be simply crazy to do such a thing. Not only is it dangerous for the firefighters to lose their jobs, but it’s even more dangerous for the community. By adding seconds or even minutes to a response call, one can forget about having a possible chance of being saved. According to the United State’s National Fire Protection Association, only 58 percent of full-time fire departments meet the recommended response time: six minutes from alert to arrival. Do we really think we are going to rise the response time by lowering the number of stations? I believe citizens must be ready to bring the heat on administrators if they want to make sure they will solidify their safety. I understand there is a $2.9 million

deficit and that cuts need to be made somewhere, but are firefighters really the ones who should be taking a cut? We might as well make the police department take more cuts as well. After all, do we not agree that cops are like the Army, and firemen are more like the Marine Corps? We need to look elsewhere to take care of our fiscal dilemma. The possible savings of closure on fire companies are so small compared to the entire deficit. It is sad that we as a community hold such a high regard for firefighters but rarely reflect it in our municipal budgets. Zechariah Matis Brentwood

COMMUNITY

Hard house from page 1A be in danger of collapsing. To prevent that from happening, a nonprofit group has formed, Friends of the Roswell Butler Hard House, which seeks to purchase the house from the city for $1 and raise funds to rehabilitate and restore it. The group, consisting of members of the Antioch Historical Society and headed by David Brink, made its pitch to the City Council last week. While city officials are glad that a group wants to save and restore the house, some were concerned about simply handing it over. “We should see some actual accomplishments by the group before we turn the property over to them,” said Arlene Mornick in presenting her staff report to the council. “The transfer would happen after phases of the (rehabilitation) work are done.” She also wants the group to obtain a $5 million insurance policy and absolve the city of liability in the event of a lawsuit. Brink said his group could agree to the insurance policy (although they were prepared to take out a $1 million policy), but the deal killer would be not getting possession of the building from the get-go. “We are convinced that we cannot raise the funds to do this if the city retains ownership of the property,” he said. “Not all of our money would come from grants. The Sports Legends Committee raised $300,000 out of the community. If you asked (private donors) to give to the city, they would probably be more reluctant than to give to the nonprofit itself. “We believe if the city retains ownership it will drive the cost of the project up as well. It’s a bad deal on both sides: we don’t believe the city will get enough money, and the project will be more costly. I think we have the people in place to make this project happen. The city has owned this for 30 years. I guarantee you we will do a better job at it than the city has done in the past 30 years. If we mow the lawn, we will have done a better job. We are not willing to take on this job if the city requires that they have to keep owner-

belong to the Antioch Historical Society. But the motion failed when only Councilwoman Mary Rocha voted for it. Instead the council agreed to form a committee of Parsons and Rocha to work out the details with Brink. Councilman Brian Kalinowski suggested the formation of the committee due to concerns about the fate of the house and possible costs and liability to the city if the nonprofit group disbands or is unable to rehabilitate the house. “I have some concerns that we simply turn over a building, that we don’t want it back at all and it becomes a burden on the Historical Society going forward,” he said. “It concerns me a little bit that we don’t have a final vision of what we expect to get from this project. If I was a grantor, what is it going to bring to

the community? We don’t have any of those concepts firmed up. It needs to be a cooperative between the council and the Friends in terms of the collective vision of that. Ten years ago the thought was it could be the mayor’s office, even if it’s only ceremonial.” Brink responded, “The most important part of this project is to save the building. Second most is make it look nice for the downtown. The least important part is the actual use, because it is a small building. It will never have more than 20 people in it. It’s not going to be a big boon to downtown.” The one thing everyone agreed on is that the City of Antioch has no money to help save and rehabilitate the building.

Wolverines ride Eagle to first-round win Second-round thriller ends superior season by Nate Smith Correspondent

Credit was due all around following the Deer Valley Wolverines’ 6-4 firstround playoff victory over the visiting Granada Matadors. Credit head coach Dennis Luquet for keeping ace Josh Eagle available at all times, and credit the Wolverine lineup for pounding out six runs in the first four innings against Granada ace John Love. Credit was also due to Eagle, who allowed no hits in the first four innings, and then re-entered his spot on the mound with two outs in the top of the seventh to close out the victory for Deer Valley. Officially, Eagle threw four and a third innings, striking out five and allowing no hits. But he played first base for the fifth and sixth innings and for the first two outs of the seventh before the Matadors staged a late rally, prompting Luquet to move Eagle back to the mound, shutting the door on Granada’s designs on a comefrom-behind victory. After a three-run homer by Ryan Kirby narrowed the lead to two runs, and Ino Patron followed with

Deer Valley’s Jason Bodin slides safely into second base in front of Granada short stop Jordan Guinzon in the second inning of last week’s 6-4 Deer Valley victory. The Wolverines, however, lost the follow-up match to Amador Valley, 3-2 in extra innings, ending their season. a double, Eagle returned to the mound to record his fifth strikeout against Matador cleanup hitter Dan Carney. The potency of Deer Valley’s of-

fense allowed Eagle to be removed after the fourth inning. The Wolverines scored four times in the bottom of the first, surging ahead largely due to a two-run single

from Josh Manci. Deer Valley picked up additional runs in the second and fourth, giving it a commanding 6-0 lead. That was when Eagle exited the game, preserving innings for Saturday’s showdown against top-seed Amador Valley. The victory was Eagle’s 13th of the season, ranking him as the state leader, and gave Deer Valley its 20th victory of the season. The five strikeouts also gave Eagle 128 Ks in under 88 innings this season, against just 30 walks. But most importantly, it extended the Wolverines’ season, matching them up against another EBAL opponent, the Amador Valley Dons. The Wolverines’ season ended at the hands of the Dons in a 3-2 extra-inning nail-biter. Joey Moroney’s double in the bottom of the eighth inning provided the game-winning run for the Dons. Despite outhitting the Dons 10-5, Deer Valley committed errors that helped to allow a third-inning unearned run off Eagle, who pitched from the second through the seventh innings. The Wolverines led early before Amador Valley took a 2-1 lead in the fourth inning on a bases-loaded hit batsman. Deer Valley tied things in the sixth on a squeeze bunt before Moroney’s heroics in the eighth lifted Amador Valley into the semifinals. Deer Valley finished the season with an overall record of 20-5.

Foothill Falcons bump Patriots in round two by Michael Dixon Correspondent

The Heritage and Berkeley baseball teams treated spectators to a fantastic opening-round battle at the recent North Coast Section playoffs. The Patriots advanced to the NCS second round on the strength of a last-inning two-out rally, winning 2-1. Heritage ace Cole Wells surrendered just one run, but when Heritage failed to score through six innings, its chances looked as gloomy as the overcast skies. And when Berkeley pitcher Matt Lawrence retired the first two Patriots in the seventh, their faint comeback hopes seemed all but gone. That was when the Patriots turned to Jordan Heald-Mullins for some spark. Facing two strikes, Heald-Mullins lined a single to left, bringing Sean Packard to the plate. Packard was making a comeback from a broken jaw and had already hit two doubles on the day. After falling behind 1-2, Packard forced a full count and smoked a double to right-center field. That scored Heald-Mullins, who had stolen second and advanced to third on a passed ball, to tie the game. The dust had barely settled from the

Patriot Sean Packard, sliding safe into third, came back from being sidelined with a broken jaw to hit three doubles and lead Heritage to a 2-1 win over Berkeley in the NCS playoffs. game-tying hit when Dayton Mellor lashed a single to right field. Robert Pereira, running for Packard, headed for home. The cutdown throw sailed in high, Packard crossed the plate, the game was over and the Patriotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death-defying comeback was complete. The velocity and placement of Wellsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fastball kept the game close enough to make the rally possible. He spread out eight hits over seven innings while striking out 10 and giving up one walk and one hit batsman. Berkeley had chances to bust the game

open in the fifth and sixth innings. Both times they loaded the bases with one out â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and both times came away with nothing. Wells induced a double play to end the fifth inning and struck out consecutive hitters to end the sixth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I pitched out of a lot of jams,â&#x20AC;? said Wells. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was hoping that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d get the bats started a little earlier than that. So I had to pick up the slack to get out of a few jams, see Opener page 5B

Swimmers, divers take BVAL awards At the recent Bay Valley Athletic League swimming and diving championship meet, the following athletes earned first-team, allleague awards: 200 Freestyle: Clint Freeman (Heritage) and Madison Applegate (Heritage). 200 Individual Medley: Nick Araujo (Heritage) and Rachel Allison (Heritage). 50 Freestyle: Justin Stafford (Freedom) and Haley Rose Love (Heritage). Diving: Jake Tickner (Liberty) and Kat Kiba (Heritage). 100 Butterfly: Cameron Koller (Heritage) and Madison Applegate (Heritage). 100 Freestyle: Justin Stafford (Freedom) and Haley Rose Love (Heritage). 500 Freestyle: Ryan Barsanti (Heritage) and Stephanie Vosicka (Heritage). 100 Backstroke: Kurt Holzmuller (Heritage) and Kaitlyn Holmsten (Heritage). 100 Breaststroke: Clint Freeman (Heritage) and Rachel Allison (Heritage). In addition, Heritage sophomore Madison Applegate was named Most Valuable Swimmer/Diver and All-American Automatic in the 100 Butterfly, won the 200 Freestyle and 100 Butterfly, and swam in two winning relays. Liberty senior Jake Tickner won the BVAL Diving championship for the fourth time in a row, and qualified for an NCS berth.

Opener from page 4B but I still think we did good.” On his team’s chances in the playoffs, Wells said, “I think we’ve got a really strong chance of getting pretty far into this. I think today was just because of the rain or something, we weren’t quite right. But I think in the next few games, we’re going to come out strong.” Patriot Manager Kevin Brannan said of Wells, “He battled. There was a couple of innings when he had first and second with nobody out, a runner on second with nobody out, and he just kept battling and battling, and he pretty much did it with a fastball all day long. It was his game to lose. We weren’t going to pull him; he’s our guy and we’re going to stick with him. “We’ve had a couple of games this year where we had to battle all the way to the end. I think today, you’ve got to take your hat off; that was a pretty good pitcher that they threw and he pitched really well. Obviously, when you win an NCS game, they’re all huge. So, from being one strike away from going home and packing it up to being able to play on Friday is a big one for us.” Brannan also gave special mention to the top hitter of the day: “Sean was out for probably about 10 games in the middle of the season. So to have him back in the lineup was just a huge lift for us. And that was such a clutch hit.” Update: The Patriots’ season ended last Friday at the hands of the Foothill Falcons, who scored three runs in the opening inning and held on to win by a 4-2 margin.

Delta Dawgs dingers demolish Series foes Brentwood’s 9U Delta Dawgs brought home the hardware after going 40 in the Super Series baseball tournament in Woodland – the team’s first tournament victory since it was formed this year. “I couldn’t be more proud of the boys,” said head coach Mark Murray. “They played and swung the bats great.” In game one, the Dawgs beat the Bombers of Marin 12-4 in five innings. Tommy Munson pitched the full game, striking out seven, and was bolstered by homers off the bats of Oscar Murray and Richie Kabasinskas. In game two, the Dawgs beat the neighboring Con-

cord Patriots 11-8 in five innings. Their bats were again on fire, as Oscar Murray, Munson and Howie Hicks hit round-trippers. Hicks dominated on the mound and held the Pats to one run in three innings. Impressive team defense supported his efforts. The Dawgs bats continued to smoke, this time against the Bombers in game three, where the Dawgs were victorious 17-3 in four innings. Kabasinskas ruled the mound with seven strikeouts. All 11 players notched hits, including homers by Munson and Kabasinskas. see Dawgs page 8B

Ideal foods for men

We hear a lot these days about how important it is for women to eat certain foods containing specific nutrients. What about men? Are there foods men should eat for better overall health? The answer is an unequivocal “Yes.” In fact, there are several foods and nutrients that men

should consume most days of the week for optimum health. • Fiber – Men need to eat at least 25 grams of fiber each day. While that can be daunting, fiber is found in sources such as grapefruit, soybeans and whole grains. If you’re looking for whole-grain products, make sure the ingredients read “100% whole grain” or “100% whole wheat.” • Folate – Men can significantly reduce the risk of certain types of cancer by eating food rich in folate. Take a supplement or add dark, leafy greens and orange juice to your diet. Men are advised to look for the words “folate” or “folic” on food labels and get at least 800 mg each day. • Tomato sauce – It takes 165 raw tomatoes to equal 10 tablespoons of tomato sauce. This juicy red fruit contains lycopene, which can help fight cancer. Instead of eating all those tomatoes, enjoy 10 tablespoons of tomato sauce per week and decrease the chances of arterial aging, heart disease, stroke and memory loss. • Nuts – Men should eat walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts to tap into those powerful omega-3 acids. It’s good practice to snack on some before eating foods like pasta or corn on the cob. The fat in the nuts helps the stomach slow down and the body to more effectively process the sugar from the carbohydrates in those meals. • Fish – Men also should consider eating a serving of fish three times a week. Tilapia, salmon, flounder, cod and mahimahi are all good choices. They’re high in protein and low in fat and carry a low amount of mercury, a chemical that can increase the risk of heart disease and impaired memory.

Debunking the hearing-loss myths Hearing loss is one of the most common conditions in the world. Yet there are a number of misperceptions about hearing loss that lead many to let it go untreated. The Better Hearing Institute found that only four in 10 people suffering from moderate-to-severe hearing loss use hearing aids. Many waited nearly seven years after they initially learned about their hearing loss to obtain a hearing aid – after they’d lost so much hearing that their quality of life was affected. Hearing loss can create social and emotional barriers for the individuals living with it, or the families of those it affects. Myth: Hearing loss affects only the elderly Fact: Only 35 percent of people with hearing loss are older than 64. Hearing loss affects all age groups. The number of Americans suffering from hearing loss has grown to more than 34 million – roughly 11 percent of the population. In the United States, more than one million school-age children have hearing problems. And according to the National Institutes of Health, nearly 26 million Americans suffer from high-frequency hearing loss that might have been caused by exposure to loud noise at work or in leisure activities. Activities that put people at risk for noise-induced hearing loss include target

shooting, hunting, snowmobile riding, woodworking and other hobbies, playing in a band and attending rock concerts. Harmful noises at home come from lawnmowers, leaf blowers and shop tools. Myth: If I have a hearing loss, my doctor would have told me. Fact: According to the Better Hearing Institute, only 15 percent of physicians routinely screen for hearing loss during a physical. And without special training, it might be difficult for your doctor to realize the extent of your hearing problem. Do you: • Have trouble hearing over the telephone? • Often ask people to repeat what they are saying? • Find it hard to follow conversations when two or more people are talking? • Think that others seem to mumble? • Have a problem hearing because of background noise? • Have trouble understanding when women and children speak to you? If you answered yes to three or more of these questions, visit a hearing professional and get properly tested. Don’t let myths about hearing loss prevent you from enjoying life.

Heritage from page 1B reversing a trend earlier in the season. The Panthers had taken the first two meetings of the season against Heritage, but the difference lately, according to Coach Ron Rivers, has been team defense. “Both Antioch and Freedom beat us earlier this year by capitalizing on our errors,” said Rivers. “We’ve been playing a lot better defensively now. The girls are jelling at the right time, and they want to keep playing.” Rodrigues and the Patriot defense allowed just one Panther to reach second base in the contest, making Ramirez’s early RBI stand up as the game-winner. Ramirez, who led the BVAL in home runs during the regular season with three, has made up for missed time with her performances in the Patriots’ playoff run. After suffering an injury to a finger against Liberty, she was held out of action for much of the opening playoff game against College Park. But Rivers finally decided it was time for her return, and the Patriots are now in the semifinals as a result. The quarterfinal triumph set up an allBVAL semifinal between Heritage and regular-season champion Freedom, the North Coast Section’s dominant program over the last decade. The Falcons took two out of three from the Patriots during the regular season, but as Coach Rivers pointed out, “We’ve cleaned up our defense and we’re excited about our next game.” Wednesday’s game was played at Freedom High School.

Freedom from page 1B (Daniels) worked in the cages with the kids this week. Likewise, we did that with Madison. I think that this is one of the better-hitting teams I’ve seen this year, top to bottom.” Despite the lopsided victory, the Falcon performance was far from flawless. A potential Freedom rally in the fifth inning was thwarted by a series of errors on the bases, resulting in one of the oddest double plays ever turned. After Ariana Hawkins led off with a bunt single, Katie Wood attempted a sacrifice bunt. The throw, however, went to second, where Hawkins was safe but turned too wide around the base. She was tagged out in the ensuing run-down, which didn’t last long enough for Wood to reach second safely. “I chalk that up to just not being headsup,” Jonas said. “I don’t know why. We work on that, and work on it, and work on it.” Also hurting the Falcons was an uncharacteristically sloppy defensive effort. The only error they committed was by Jackie Zepeda on a ball with impossibly tough spin. The most confusing play came on a pop-up that Freedom second baseman Sarah Osborn appeared ready to catch but lost in the Sun. “When you don’t play, having a bye, you do get a little rusty – at least high-schoolers,” said Jonas. “Pros and major-leaguers might not, but these are just kids. The hitting was there; we came through at the plate and I thought that we put pressure on them every inning. Even with the outs that we were making at the end, we still had two hard line drives.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.
