City’s violent crime drops sharply by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

So far this year, Antioch has experienced a substantial drop in violent crime compared to last year, a change for which the city’s acting police chief gave credit to alert residents. Acting Police Chief Allan Cantando feels that the overall 19.1 percent drop in violent crime so far this year, in comparison to January through May of 2010, can largely be attributed to a more vigilant and aware public. He noted there has been increased participation in programs such as Neighborhood Watch bolstered by an overall upsurge in residents calling in suspicious activity. According to Cantando, attendance at Neighborhood Watch and the department’s crime-prevention meetings has grown. Last weekend, the department held a Coffee with the Cops event, inviting residents to meet the men and women in uniform, and about 75

called it in.” From January through May of last year, 367 violent crimes were reported by the Antioch Police Department. Through May of 2011, 70 fewer violent crimes, such as

homicide, rape and aggravated assault, have been reported. Cantando also credited simple luck that some of the bullets fired in Antioch this year haven’t hit people, turning potential homicides into mere “attempted” homicides. One of the sharpest declines has been in theft. From January through May of 2010, 479 incidences of theft were reported; so far this year, the number is down to 396. Juvenile arrests are down 24.9 percent while adult arrests have seen a 6-percent drop. Property crime has also taken a decline, to 5.4 percent. Overall, “part-one” (violent and property) crime from January through May has seen an 8.3 reduction compared to that time frame in 2010. The only category showing an increase has been burglary, which is up 9.5 percent. “I really equate it to citizens getting involved and calling us,” Cantando said. “We’re getting

‘No shot, no school’ deadline looms by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Of all the items parents need to put on their child’s back-to-school checklist this year, the pertussis vaccine should be at the top. As of July 1, California law requires all students entering seventh through 12th grades to be immunized with the whooping cough booster vaccine. And local school districts and health affiliates throughout East County are continuing to reach out to the school community, emphasizing the now wellknown slogan: No Shot, No School. “We’ve been sending out weekly reminders to our families,” said John Saylor, director of special services with the Liberty Union High School District. “And for us, that is 7,200 students. I would have to say that in general our families have been very good at getting it done. We still have a way to go, but things are beginning to trickle in.” Whooping cough is a highly contagious bacterial illness spread through coughs and

sneezes and characterized by severe, lingering coughs. In 2010, 10 infants died from the malady – the highest number since 1950 – and thousands more became ill, prompting state health officials to declare a pertussis epidemic in California. The pertussis – or DTaP vaccine – consists of four inoculations. The first three doses are given at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 15 to 18 months and again at 4 to 6 years of age. However, immunity wears off over time and the danger lies in adults and older children spreading the illness to infants too young to receive the vaccine. East County’s local school districts have been working for months to inform the public about the new law, emphasizing that without proof of inoculation, students will not be allowed to attend school. But as thousands of students have yet to be inoculated, and most schools open their doors on Aug. 1, the looming deadline is daunting. “Approximately 80 percent of our children

have yet to provide proof of their pertussis vaccine, so we have a bit to go,” said Jan Steed, director of student services for the Brentwood Union School District. “But we have it (information) plastered everywhere, and Kaiser has been sending home letters notifying families, so we’re doing everything we can.”

New look at Little Miss Everything by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

The staff at Little Miss Everything has been making over little princesses and rock stars for more than five years, and now the downtown Brentwood business is undergoing a transformation of its own, adding a host of new activities to please youngsters of all ages. While the children’s boutique has been a hit since opening in 2005, manager Renae Gonzalez is expanding the shop’s activities beyond birthday parties and children’s clothing and accessories. “We’re looking for new ways to bring more people into the store,” Gonzalez said. “We have a loyal fan base, but there are still people out there who don’t know what we’re all about. We’re more than the children’s boutique downtown, so this summer we’re doing free storytimes, play dates, and what we call happy hour, where kids can come play in our new dressup closet. We want to offer children a variety of activities to keep them busy this summer and all year long.” Little Miss Everything will be a hot spot this weekend as representatives from Steele Model and Talent Management come to Brentwood scouting for the next star. Kathy Steele, the founder of the agency, will conduct an educational seminar on Saturday, June 25, about entering the world of modeling and acting. Steele’s daughter Vanessa Steinmeyer, director of new faces, said the seminar will help families understand what it means to enter the business and what is expected of children who pursue a career in the entertainment industry. The seminar begins at 12:30 p.m. Those interested in at-

be a unique opportunity to sit down with families to educate them about the business.” Prior to the seminar, Little Miss Everything will host a fashion show at 11 a.m., which will be judged by the Steele representatives. Attendance at the seminar is not required for participation in the fashion show. Registration is $49 and includes a Little Miss Everything tank, tutu, tiara and a certificate for participation. This week, Little Miss Everything launched storytime on Tuesdays at 11:15 a.m. The event is free and guests are welcome to stay after to get their hair done or play dress up. While the store will continue to offer birthday parties, which accommodate six to 18 people, Gonzalez is also launching play dates in which kids can have the run of the party room sans the traditional birthday celebration. She is also opening the party room for baby showers and baby welcoming parties. “We are trying to break the stigma that we are just a girls’ clothing store,” Gonzalez said. “We want people to know that no matter what age you are, Little Miss Everything has something to offer you. We’ve even begun to sell clothes for boys and we plan to expand that offering this year. We’ve got a lot of new things in the works and we’re excited to reintroduce ourselves to Brentwood.” Another new venture is a partnership with Peace.Love. Swap, a program that organizes clothing and accessory swaps for maternity, baby, kid and teen gear. More than 40 families turned out for the first swap, which took place earlier this month at the Little Gym, which Gonzalez said is impressive, see Everything page 20A

Antioch sees spike in copper theft Staff Writer

Copper wire thieves have caused thousands of dollars of damage this year to Pacific Gas & Electric poles in Antioch, but the city’s police say copper theft has been a problem for years. According to PG&E spokeswoman Tamar Sarkissian, vandals have stripped copper wire from more than 300 utility poles and two transformers in Antioch. The poles cost about $500 to repair, while transformer repair costs roughly $12,000. Last year, fewer than 10 PG&E utility poles were vandalized, said Sarkissian, who noted that Antioch has probably seen the biggest spike of copper theft throughout the Bay Area. “The main message that we’re trying to send out is: this is extremely dangerous to attempt to steal energized wire,� Sarkissian said. “What we’re really hoping is that the community can support us by reporting anything that they see that may be suspicious to law enforcement and to PG&E.� Thieves strip copper from vacant homes, utility poles, schools and other buildings with large air conditioning systems, then recycle it for quick cash. Antioch Police Captain Leonard Orman said people steal the copper from one area, then drive to another one to recycle in order to not arouse suspicion. The police have been in constant contact with recycling facilities, but the most effective way to stop copper theft is to stop it in the act. In the past few weeks, two utility poles have been sawed down in order to access the trans-

former. On June 6, a pole was cut down near the railroad tracks on Auto Center Drive and the transformer was stripped for its metal. Ten days later, an entire transformer was stolen on Wilbur Avenue near Apollo Court. Orman said it’s been a problem Antioch and other Bay Area cities have dealt with for a while, as the value of copper begins to rise again. Previously, aluminum was more valuable, leading to more thefts of that metal. Orman estimated the value of copper at about $3 per pound. But while the recent onslaught to PG&E poles sounds like a serious uptick, it’s roughly what the city has dealt with on average the past few years. “Clearly there’s an increase where PG&E has been the victim,� Orman said. “Overall copper thefts are pretty static and have been for years. Really the only time that we see a dramatic drop in copper thefts is when the price of copper drops.� As lack of staffing has forced the Antioch Police Department to shift its primary focus from property crimes to violent crimes, copper-theft busts have decreased. Orman noted that the department is going high-tech to track down the vandals, building a database of people who have turned in copper in multiple cities. “You’re dealing with volume of stolen metal that’s unidentifiable,� Orman said. “It’s a huge problem and it’s due to the fact that it’s valuable.� Sarkissian urges those who see suspicious acPhoto by Richard Wisdom tivity near a utility pole to call the Antioch police non-emergency line at 925-778-2441 or the PG&E Vandals have targeted power poles along Wilbur Avenue, doing company hotline at 800-743-5000. thousands of dollars in damage to steal a few dollars’ worth of To comment, visit www.thepress.net. copper wire.

Deemed Distinguished HOW TO CALCULATE DEBT RATIO I’ve met with literally hundreds of distressed homeowners over the past few years. My #1 goal is to keep them in their home, if possible (and if it makes sense). The first thing I USED to ask them is if they can afford their payment. Many times they will shrug their shoulders and say, “Well, yeah, kind of.� I’ve found that most people have never really calculated their own debt ratio, so they really don’t know if they can afford it or not. Your debt ratio is your housing expense divided by your monthly gross income. The government and most lenders use 31% as a guideline. 31% and below is considered “affordable.� Sounds simple enough, but let’s define what goes into that calculation. Your housing expense is your first mortgage payment, plus property taxes, homeowner’s insurance, plus any payments for mortgage insurance, HOA and then any 2nd or 3rd mortgages. (Do NOT include any house maintenance fees like utilities, landscaping, etc). Then for your gross income, put down all household income, and use the gross number (before taxes). If you are receiving tax-free

income of some kind, then you have to “gross it up� so you are using the number as if you were paying taxes on it. For example, if you get $2,000, but no taxes are taken out, then divide by, say, .7 (we are adding back in what would have come out if taxes of 30% were being withheld). That would be $2,857. Where this gets complicated is when you have an adjustable mortgage (ARM), negative-amortization, or interest-only loan (or any combination of these). For this situation I usually calculate several debt ratios. First, the debt ratio on your minimum payment, then what it would be after the ARM adjusts, and then I factor in making the payment a full-amortizing payment (one that reduces your principal balance each month). Or just call or email me and I can do this for you and email you back a printout. If you have questions on this or any other real estate topic, call me at (925) 240MOVE (6683).

Choir leader Wes Niles of the Neighborhood Church leads the congregation in song during the church’s recent celebration marking 25 years in Brentwood.

Brentwood Neighborhood Church recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of its founding. On May 4, 1986, the congregation installed its first pastor. Current Senior Pastor David Mason, who came to the church in 1990, emceed the recent celebration event held in the Liberty High School Performing Arts Center. Church members enjoyed being together in one place for the first time in years, as the church regularly meets in three Sunday services. Invited

guests included Mayor Bob Taylor and District Superintendent Doug Swinburne of the Christian & Missionary Alliance (the church’s parent denomination). Other guests included former staff members. Wes Niles, Worship Pastor for 11 years, led the first worship sequence, which included a 40-voice choir with orchestral accompaniment. After the service, more than 350 enjoyed a barbecue served on the grounds of Edna Hill Middle School.

Top Soroptimists of Antioch honored At the recent annual region convention of Soroptimist International of the Americas, local members of Soroptimist International of Antioch were honored for their outstanding contributions to their community and for their club’s overall active participation in programs that improve the lives of women and girls. “When I consider the work and dedication of these club members, I am truly humbled,” said Region Governor Linda Sue Hansen. “They represent the very best of Antioch. We are so fortunate in having them as part of our organization.” The convention, held in Rohnert Park, brought together clubs from Northern California, Hawaii and the Marianas. Members from Antioch joined more than 400 attendees in discussing how they can better serve their communities, and in particular, address the needs and concerns of women and girls. The convention marked the

90th anniversary of Soroptimist and marked the culmination of regionwide service projects undertaken by members from Antioch. Fleece blankets for girls in foster care were made by Soroptimist members and books were collected for young girls who otherwise would have no personal books to read. Other highlights of the convention included the presentation of special fellowship awards to women in the final stages of their doctoral studies, the honoring of women who make a difference for women or girls in their community, and the honoring of teenage girls involved in outstanding volunteer efforts in their community. Soroptimist International is a service organization primarily of business women and professionals, operating clubs in 124 countries.

Summer storytime at Brentwood Library New storytime sessions have begun at the Brentwood Library and will continue through Aug. 11. No registration is required, and all programs are free – just drop in for a story. Lapsit Baby Storytime, designed for children to age 2, is held every Thursday at 10:30 a.m. Even the smallest babies benefit from these special sessions. The storyteller leads children and their caregivers through easy fingerplays, bounces and songs, and introduces them to colorful, engaging picture books. Early exposure to books and the spoken word assists in brain development, and encourages language skills, creativity and other characteristics that benefit children for life.

For children 2½ to 3½, the library offers Toddler Time on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11:30 a.m. Toddler Time engages children and their caregivers in a wide variety of books and activities. Reading to children encourages a love of literature, and repetition of fingerplays and songs stimulates learning and focuses attention. Preschoolers 3½ to 5 will enjoy library’s Picture Book Time, held Tuesdays at 1:30 p.m. At this age, children are beginning to refine their vocabulary, develop social skills and retain basic facts. Picture Book Time reinforces important skills for school attendance, such as attentiveness, interaction with an instructor and other

children, plus knowledge of simple concepts such as colors, animals and shapes. For children unable to visit the library for a morning or afternoon storytime, the library offers ongoing Pajama Times every Monday night at 7. Children of all ages can snuggle up for a story. Pajamas are optional. Storytimes take place in the seating area just inside the library’s front door. The Brentwood Library, 104 Oak St., is open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information about the library and its programs, call 925-5165290 or visit www.ccclib.org.

Brentwood joins New Zealand relief effort by Amy Claire Correspondent

All eyes were on New Zealand after the devastating February earthquake in the city of Christchurch. However, in the ensuing onslaught of natural disasters around the world, including the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, New Zealand and its people were pushed off the front page and largely forgotten. Their needs, however, are still great, and Brentwood is making an effort to help. Local nonprofit Love 4 Our Neighbors has started AID4ROF, a Ring of Fire Earthquake Relief Fund for areas such as Christchurch. The Ring of Fire describes the quakeprone areas of land surrounding the Pacific Ocean, including New Zealand, Japan, Chile – and California. Love 4 Our Neighbors Director Deb Melander said Ring of Fire nations have traditionally offered mutual support. “Japan was one of the first responders to New Zealand,” she said. “When their emergency came, they obviously had to go home. Despite what they’re going through, New Zealand sent a team (to Japan) with them.” While New Zealanders have been cleaning up the rubble from collapsed buildings, more than 3,100 aftershocks have continued to shake the area. Structures that were formerly salvageable, including the 130-year-old Christchurch Cathedral, are now condemned due to the additional damage. Sidewalks, streets and lawns have erupted in muddy gey-

Hagley Park, 400 acres of open space in the center of Christchurch, remains crowded with families living in tents. Winter is now beginning in New Zealand, and dangerously cold temperatures are expected. Rebuilding efforts are estimated to cost almost 60 percent of the country’s gross national income. And experts are predicting

an additional 8.0+ magnitude earthquake to strike the area within the next year. New Zealand needs help. Brentwood resident Rob Gwynne, former New Zealand resident and director of AID4ROF, is passionate about helping the recovery efforts. “Christchurch is like a city under siege. Just when they start making some progress with repairs, another quake hits. It’s three steps forward, two steps back.”

In an effort to raise awareness of the continuing New Zealand crisis, Gwynne arranged for Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor to speak with Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker. “This is a great city we have here, and it’s taken a knocking,” said Mayor Parker. “It will never be the same, but we have a chance to do something.” Taylor offered Brentwood’s support. “We’re no longer a separate world,” he said. “I think between the Internet and instantaneous correspondence, we’re really tied together. Anything I can do for you, I certainly will.” Plans are being made for a team of engineers from Christchurch to visit San Francisco to research building codes, retrofitting and rebuilding efforts that the city has employed during its own bouts with natural disasters. During the visit, Brentwood plans to host the contingent of engineers for a few days. “He (Mayor Taylor) is asking the community, businesses as well as people, to help,” said Gwynne. While clothing and food are not immediate problems, the nation greatly needs monetary donations to help pay for electricity, heating and rebuilding. To donate to relief efforts in Christchurch and other areas suffering from natural disasters, visit www.aid4rof.org or send checks to 2025 Newton Drive, Brentwood CA 94513. AID4ROF also appreciates business donations for online fundraiser auctions, school fundraisers, business profit percentage fundraisers and other fundraising ideas.

by the character of the loan at the time the loan was originated and then by the manner in which the lender chooses to foreclose. Generally, a loan or loans used to purchase a 1-4 unit property occupied by the borrower will have no personal or tax liability unless it is excluded loan product such as many types of governmental loans such as VA loans. On the other hand, home loans which were not used to purchase a 1-4 unit property occupied by the borrower such as refinances, lines of credit or loans on investment properties, may have both personal and tax liability. Even after considering the legal issues, we still need to think about a voluntary default from a financial point of view. Is being “house poor” causing you to not properly fund your retirement, your children’s college education or preventing you from paying bills as they come due or taking your family on vacation? In conclusion, a voluntary default may be the right decision for you just as it was for Morgan Stanley. It was a business decision for Morgan Stanley and it should be for you too. This is a complicated area of the law, but a real estate or bankruptcy attorney should be able to make to an analysis of your particular situation fairly quickly which will allow you to decide if a voluntary default is the right decision for you and your family.

To say that these are difficult times in the real estate market would be an understatement. The melt down began with an extended boom fueled by cheap money followed by a rapid contraction of the credit supply. This lethal combination has led to an unprecedented decline in housing values. I have no doubt that the real estate market will come back and thrive. However, in the meantime, does it make financial sense to stay in a home that is underwater; where the value may not come back for 10-15 years and you may only be paying interest on the loan? What is a person to do? The mortgage industry and government would like us to feel a moral obligation to repay our debts. The argument goes that we are sending the wrong message to our children and community if we default on a loan where we had the ability to make the payments. Never mind that Wall Street banks and investors are voluntarily defaulting on office building, hotels and commercial properties across the nation. Morgan Stanley recently decided to stop paying on five San Francisco office buildings and no one is saying they have a moral obligation. It was a strategic decision to let the properties go rather than invest more money. A decision to voluntarily or strategically default on a loan can be a very emotional decision. However, if we take the emotional side out of the equation, what does it look like from a purely financial and legal standpoint? From a legal standpoint, there are three questions when contemplating a default on a home loan. They are the following: 1) how will default affect my credit? 2) will there be any personal liability from the default? and 3) will there be any tax liability? In addition, from a financial standpoint, how does the continuing payment of this debt affect other areas of my life? As a general rule, under California law, a short sale or foreclosure can remain on a person’s credit for up to 7 years. Personal liability on a home loan is determined

Deadline from page 1A At the Oakley Union Elementary School District, where roughly 800 middle school students still need to file their proofs of vaccination, automated voicemail messages have gone out to all the students’ families, and letters have been mailed reminding parents to get their students vaccinated before Aug. 1. Assistant Superintendent of Student Services Maryann Hussey is confident that families will meet the deadline. “We figure there are about 400 students at each of the (two) middle schools still waiting for their vaccinations,” said Hussey. “But our parents are really good about following through on things, and we’re hoping people won’t wait until the last minute … There is no grace period.” Ken Jacopetti, superintendent of the Byron Union School District, said his office has been aggressive in reminding families of the Aug. 1 deadline and remains hopeful that all will comply: “We’ve sent out

Crime from page 1A more and more citizen involvement wanting to impact crime.” One reason for the influx of help from the community might actually be the poor economy.

Currently, the Antioch Police Department is operating with 29 vacant positions,

our notices and are communicating with families at a very high level. We’ll continue to engage our families and are currently compiling that information and creating a contact list.” Dennis Meyers, assistant executive director of advocacy and policy for the California Association of School Business Officials, said there might be a way for families who don’t meet the vaccination deadline to get a reprieve: “We are trying to get legislation enacted to allow for a 10-day window for students who can’t get their paperwork in by the deadline to still be able to come to school for the first few days; 30 to 40 percent of kids in California have not been vaccinated, and many of them are from the poorer areas … “The problem is one of communication. We have one district right now in Eastern Merced where over half of the students have not been vaccinated, and the money the districts are losing is huge.”

The reprieve legislation’s prospect for success, however, is slim. It needs to be approved before the July 1 deadline, pass through both houses of the state legislature and be signed by the governor in roughly a week. “It’s a long shot,” conceded Meyers. “But it’s worth a try … In San Diego Unified, they could lose up to $1 million a day with students who don’t get their vaccines in on time. Of course, the amount of money schools will lose is third and fourth down the line of importance, but at the same time, we want to keep the students in school.” Some, however, believe the pertussis deadline shouldn’t be given special treatment. “Our practice has always been to have our immunizations before school starts,” said Saylor. “If there was a change in the law, we would certainly honor it. But for now, our policy stands.” Steed concurred. “I really appreciate the forward thinking,” he said of the extension proposal. “But we’re still moving for-

and as a result, has been forced to shuffle its priorities. Antioch cops now place more focus on violent crimes. Cantando and other leaders in the department recently rejiggered the city’s beat maps to put more officers on patrol in some of the high-crime areas such as the neighborhood of Sycamore Drive. “Citizens are realizing what our resources really are,” Cantando said. “They’re trying to help us by calling in when they see something.” In addition to moving people around, the department has also gone high-tech to get the word out to the public. Earlier this

year, Antioch police launched Facebook and Twitter pages as a way to connect with the public. As of Wednesday morning, 389 people have clicked “like” on the department’s Facebook page, which posts success stories and notable arrests. The department has also released a series of informative videos called “Be On The Lookout,” showing how citizens can help fight crime by simply being more aware of their surroundings and calling in suspicious activity if they see it. Cantando said the department will continue to combat crime by focusing on the

violent cases as well as performing stings on liquor stores that sell to minors. The department will also apply for government grants to enhance the bare-bones budget. “The fact that we’ve got a violent crime decrease when we’ve had to cut as much as we have tells me that they have taken their professionalism to another level,” Antioch City Councilman Gary Agopian said. “I’m really impressed with the work they’ve been doing. … When we get an opportunity to leverage better revenue, imagine what we’re going to be able to do.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

As a new celebrity fragrance seems to be launched every month, it can be hard to determine what fragrance is right for you. How do you sift through all the options to select a signature perfume? • Take time to browse, and make your selection based on what you like instead of what’s popular. • Fragrances come in five primary categories: floral, fruity, woody, greens and oriental. Choose a second scent for special occasions, perhaps something with stronger base notes. • It’s a common misconception that you should spray fragrance onto inner wrists and then rub them together. Instead, ap-

ply directly to the skin at the neckline, on the interior of the elbow joints and on the inside of the wrists. • Body chemistry can make the same scent smell different on different people. When browsing multiple scents, spritz available scent strips and take them with you out of the store. Perfumes need time to settle, and coming back to them after a few hours will help you make a more informed decision. • Ask questions of sales associates or friends if you’re not sure where to start. Personal recommendations can help make the process less overwhelming. – Courtesy of Family Features

brim hat to prevent sunlight from beading down on the top of the head and your face. For extended periods in the sun, such as when you’re gardening, long sleeves are best. Lighter colors might feel cooler, but they don’t protect your arms as well as darker colors. Choose a comfortable and lightweight material, and avoid white. When out for a walk, cover the front and back of your legs – and your neck – with sunscreen. Sun exposure can also be harmful to your sight. The skin on your eyelids is thin and can easily burn, and sunscreen should not be applied close to the eyes, so wear sunglasses. On our typically cloudy mornings, you still need to use sunscreen if you go out. In fact, sunscreen should be used on the face all year ’round. It might not feel like the sun is out there, but it is, and your beautiful faces need to be covered! Years ago I recall using a reflector to maximize the sun on my face. I slathered on baby oil and soaked in the rays for hours. I’d swim at the beach without a thought in the world about UV rays. All I wanted was to have fun and get that dark tan. Then I learned that my skin was at risk for cancer. Ignorance might be bliss, but in this case, it was life threatening. Who knew? Well, we do now.

On the heels of a wet and cold spring, summer has finally arrived in the East Bay. But the sunlight that cheers us up and provides us with natural vitamin D also threatens damaging effects on our skin. New reports reveal that in 2012, sunscreen labels will SENIOR be required to list all ORNER ingredients – and make no claim of being waterproof. The notion that sunscreen doesn’t wash off or sweat off is a myth. You should apply sunscreen every two hours, using as much as a golf-ball-size MARLA dose and covering your LUCKHARDT face, ears, hands and – when you wear sandals – the tops of your feet. When you haul yourself out of the swimming pool, dry off and reapply your sunscreen. Broad-spectrum sunblock must have a minimum SPF rating of 15 (30 is better) and provide UVA and UVB protection. An SPF over 30 is fine, but 30 should be adequate as long as it’s replenished often. Read those labels! If you’re allergic to certain fragrances, find a sunscreen that’s hypoallergenic. Spending a few pennies more is worth it. Ask your pharmacist to recommend a good product. It can be confusing! Since thinning hair subjects your head to direct and harmful rays, wear a wide-

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters It’s a Local Thing When we as Main Street Americans but even more so as residents of the delta can slide through the cracks and purchase real estate at prices less than large, publicly traded builders such as Toll Brothers, it is time to seriously begin thinking about investing in real estate. With builders paying eighty to ninety dollars a square foot and houses (almost brand new) selling for seventy to eighty dollars a square foot, it only makes sense to purchase a home while they are selling for literally less then replacement costs. Also, with the SMP 500 and the DOW both hitting four year lows in the past few weeks, no longer are large markets a safe haven for liquid investments. The beauty of real estate however compared to other forms of financial investments i.e. stocks, bonds and equities is that, for the most part, real estate is affected largely by local circumstance. To help demonstrate this best an old accounting term comes to mind, first in first out or FIFO is the perfect way to describe the market we currently find ourselves in. At this point there is no debate that globally the financial markets are tightening and analysts feel a recession is inevitable. The silver lining however is that on a local level, based on local business demographics, we’ve already been in a recession for the past nine months. By definition, two consecutive quarters of decline in real GDP (Gross Domestic Product) is what constitutes an actual recession and thanks to the businesses willing to open their books, it is very clear we’ve already passed that bench mark. In other words, while the nation is still nose diving downwards, on a local level, our real estate market has seen the worst so we’re all ahead of the curve. By purchasing local real estate now at the

prices our market currently is willing to bear, in the long term you will be hard pressed to lose money. Our situation and the tremendous down turn that led to it have left in their wake opportunity that great minds only dream of. Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Every person who invests in well-selected real estate in a growing section of a prosperous community adopts the surest and safest method of becoming independent, for real estate is the basis of wealth.”, and Franklin D. Roosevelt stated, “Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world.” In essence, every piece of the two quotes above can be found in today’s market: the “growing section of a prosperous community” is checked off thanks to the community’s growing academic scores as well as the opening of the highly anticipated Streets of Brentwood shopping center. And the “purchased with common sense” issue is covered by the market itself and the inability to now qualify for a loan unless you truly qualify for the loan. Those facts combines with the easy access to water (the delta) and the unfortunate but inescapable truth that we as a community have already been a recession and you’re simply running out of fingers to help count the reasons as to why now’s the perfect time to invest in local real estate. To leave with a bit of humor, quoting the immortal actor Will Rogers, “Buy land. They ain’t making any more of the stuff.” If you have any real estate lending related questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to write me at tfreymortgages@yahoo.com or call me directly at 925-726-1444. – Advertisement

Locals excel early in Little League playoffs by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer The opening rounds of the California Little League District 4 Tournament of Champions provided no shortage of offense, as Antioch and East County teams found out – for better and for worse. In the major baseball bracket, the Antioch Little League Bears opened with an 11-1 victory over Richmond on Saturday followed by a 12-1 thumping of Lafayette on Tuesday. The Bears advanced to face Alameda on Thursday. The East County Little League Major Astros ran up a 12-2 final score over Clayton Valley on Saturday, but fell to Continental 5-0 in the next round. Against Clayton Valley, Tryston Solari went 3for-4 with three RBIs. Drhey Castillo batted in four runs. Facing Continental, Solari had the Astros’ lone hit. The East County A’s, in the junior baseball division, saw the bats come alive in their game, but were unfortunately on the losing end. East County lost to North Oakland 15-0 on Tuesday. There were also local entrants in the AAA and AA baseball divisions. In the AAA bracket, the impressive East County Cardinals topped Martinez 11-1 on Saturday and advanced to face Pittsburg for an easy 19-3 victory. The Cardinals are the one East County team that survived the early goings. They faced a tough task on Wednesday, facing Albany.

“They (the Cardinals) have been able to save all their pitching,” East County Little League President Cary Dyer said. “We’ve got a team that’s a good little team that’s on a hot winning streak.” Antioch’s AAA team lost to North Oakland 10-0. In the AA playoffs, Martinez came out on top over the East County Yankees 13-2. Concord American was too much for Antioch in an 11-1 win. The closest game for local teams over the weekend ended up being the major division softball battle between the East County Golden Bears and the Antioch Twins. Behind a stellar pitching performance from Kylie Cast, the Twins came away with a 3-0 victory. Cast struck out nine batters, walking only one. The Twins have been Tournament of Champion runners-up for the past two years and recently capped a 21-0 regular season. Antioch advanced to face Clayton Valley on Wednesday. “I think the Antioch teams have done pretty well so far,” Antioch Little League Executive Vice President Dennis Felix said. “We have a number of teams that are still in the tournament, still playing strong baseball and softball at this time.” In the senior softball division, Clayton Valley claimed a 19-2 win over East County’s Heaters. The East County Pink Panthers fell 10-0 in the minor see Little page 23A

For the second year in a row, Brentwood’s Sunset Park will play host to parts of the Protect Our Nation’s Youth (PONY) World Series. Scheduled for mid-July, the tournament hosts the regional finals for players 9-11, and the sectional final for 12year-olds. Teams hailing from Fresno to Sacramento and from Modesto to San Francisco will take the fields in the single-elimination tournament. The Brentwood PONY Baseball League has been promised more World Series tournaments for 2012. “Brentwood was chosen to be the host because they have a great organization down here,” said Tim Jackson, director of the PONY baseball Central Valley Region. “It’s one of our bigger programs, one of our better organized programs, and they have the facilities.” The Brentwood PONY League’s 126 teams comprise nearly 1,500 kids ranging

in age from 4 to 14, plus roughly 280 volunteers – the biggest PONY program in the Central Valley Region. Sunset Park boasts six fields on which the tournament’s games will be played, The target date to start is July 14, but the park is reserved for the tournament on July 13 if the number of teams participating is great enough. The facilities allow for games to be played throughout the day. While Brentwood’s facilities make it a logical choice for the PONY World Series, Brentwood PONY Baseball League President Paul Slay and the other board members still intend to work hard to make the tournament a success. “We’re honored to be able to host it,” said Slay. “The relationship with the city and the facilities that we have access to gives us options. We have options that a lot of smaller organizations don’t have. We’re happy to be able to provide them and as a result, it see PONY page 23A

Inaugural Oakley bocce season wraps up by Michael Dixon Correspondent

When a bocce ball league was established in Oakley, no one knew what to expect in terms of interest. Despite his lack of experience in the sport, city landscape maintenance worker Juan Chavez volunteered to run the league. What Chavez and the rest of the city got was a huge response – and an exciting inaugural season: 16 teams were formed, split into a Tuesday night group and a Thursday night group. The regular season’s top team, the undefeated Rolling Raiders, were upended in the playoffs by the Delta Blues, who were then defeated in the finals by Let’s Roll. Let’s Roll’s players are Doug and Emily Statler, Maddy Tate, Betty Brown and Debbie Vieira. “Nobody expected the type of response that we got,” said Chavez. “But there was a lot of interest. The city was behind it, and we had a great time.” The league was created because courts at Creekside

Park were going unused, resulting in frequent vandalism. Since he had no bocce experience, Chavez researched the rules. After an initial online search gave him far too much information, he called people who run leagues in surrounding cities. From there, he described the process of choosing the rules as taking the best of what other cities had to offer and discarding the rest. “We wanted to do it Oakley style,” added Chavez. “Everyone had a blast; it was much less cutthroat. The rules were important – they just weren’t that important.” The league now shifts to its summer season, which will be run by experienced bocce man John Newman. While Chavez will no longer be running the league, he knows it’s in good hands, and takes good memories from his first season. “I wanted to just keep the vandals out,” said Chavez. “For me personally, it ended up being a lot more than just keeping the vandals out. It was rewarding. I had a great time and met some great people.”

The 9U Delta Dawgs baseball team outlasted seven other squads to win the TPR American Diamond Classic in Tracy last weekend. It was the 9U Dawgs’ fifth championship of the season. Despite a record of 1-1 and defeating the Ripon Cyclones 21-5 on Saturday, the Dawgs were the fifth seed entering Sunday’s singleelimination stage of the tournament. In their first game, the Dawgs defeated the Ceres Blaze 11-3. A fourth-inning triple by Adam Smith broke the game open, Jared deFremery scoring the go-ahead run. Kobe Megenhauser and Cameron Brossard followed with timely RBIs, and the Dawgs’ hitting attack ensued. Casey Turturici pitched four innings, limiting the Blaze to only three hits and three runs. Next, the Dawgs defeated one of California’s top 9U teams, the Tracy Rangers, 5-3.

Ryan Jackson, who threw his best game of the year, allowed two hits and struck out nine in six innings. A huge sixth-inning rally featuring base hits by Jackson, Ryan Pierce, Turturici and Adam Smith allowed the Dawgs to score four runs to put the game out of reach. In the championship game, the 9U Dawgs defeated another top team, the Headfirst Gamers of Livermore, 10-6. A barrage of hits from Mateo Humphreys, Ryan Pierce and Bradley Sides propelled the Dawgs to an early 7-1 lead. Alex Merchant pitched five innings, holding the Gamers to only three hits. Catcher Justin Lund’s tag-out at home prevented additional Gamers from crossing the plate. Merchant was supported by outstanding defensive plays from Humphreys, Cameron Brossard and Ryan Jackson. – Contributed by Galen Smith

Delta Dawgs sparkle in Diamond Classic The 12U Delta Dawgs, comprising players from Brentwood and Oakley, won their second championship of the summer season at the recent TPR American Diamond Classic held in Tracy. The Dawgs made a total team effort to finish 4-0-1 for the weekend. “We have 10 outstanding players with phenomenal attitudes on this team,” said manager Danny Aguilar. “That’s what sets us apart from others.” In the first game of pool play, the Dawgs overcame a two-run deficit in extra innings to earn a 4-4 tie against NorCal Valley, thanks to clutch hitting from Gary Skym and Jake Jackson in the seventh inning. Dewey Martin and DJ Aguilar followed with RBIs to tie the game and avoid a loss. Christian Diaz and Austin Lopez held their opponent to five hits and didn’t allow a runner to reach third base for five consecutive innings. “I feel like we had multiple chances to win the game outright but missed a few opportunities with runners in scoring position,” said Coach Bert Gough. “The tie felt like a loss to the boys, which shows their competitive spirit.” The Dawgs used the disappointing tie as motivation, and after winning their second game on Saturday by forfeit, came out on Sunday morning with a renewed enthusiasm. Coach Teddy Rowell sensed that good things were in store for his team. “The boys were extremely focused and pumped up during our pre-game routine,” he said. “I knew they were ready to play.” The Dawgs racked up 18 runs in their first two playoff games, easily advancing to the championship clash against a different NorCal Valley team. Bryce Prybylinski led the charge with a masterful one-hitter en route to a 3-0 victory. “Bryce was dealing today,” said Coach Jason Saude. “He left the bases loaded in the first inning, then faced only two batters over the minimum the rest of the way

But the team

really came together and played up to their potential,” Aguilar said. “I am incredibly proud of these guys. Their hard work is finally paying off.” The Delta Dawgs will be traveling to Omaha, Neb. for a tournament later this month. – Contributed by Darlene Gonzalez

Youth keeps fast company by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer Michael O’Connell had a feeling, when his son was still in diapers, that the kid’s future would include four tires and a steering wheel. The Discovery Bay resident fondly recalls a photo of Donovan, as a toddler, under his grandfather’s 1955 Ford F-100 truck. So far, Donovan is on the right track. Now 9, he recently earned his first win in the Western Scale Racing Association Minicup Trophy Dash behind the wheel of a car half the size of a NASCAR model. “It’s entertaining,” said Donovan, who is about to enter the fourth grade at Knightsen School. “You can drive a car and most other kids can’t.” After tearing up the quarter midgets circuit, Donovan moved up to the WSRA Minicup division this year. He took his first-ever checkered flag at the Trophy Dash in Roseville, racing against kids three or four years older. Behind the wheel of the No. 24 car – just like his favorite NASCAR driver, Jeff Gordon – Donovan can reach speeds of up to 75 miles per hour, while most kids his age are still riding bicycles. He has raced in Las

The

Vegas, as well as tracks all over Northern California, including Livermore, Shasta, Roseville, Madera and around Sacramento. “I’ve been overwhelmed,” Michael said. “He keeps surprising me with how he reacts and how he’s been with his racing so far.” Donovan started racing quarter midgets – open-wheeled dirt cars – when he was 4. Along the way, he and crew chief Michael have enjoyed strong support from local sponsors in Brentwood and Discovery Bay. Donovan’s next race is slated for July 9 in Roseville. The father and son work as a team, communicating by radio just like the pros do every Sunday. Michael must be equal parts coach and listener, as only Donovan can tell how the car is running. So far this year, Donovan leads the Rookie of the Year standings in the Minicup division – one of his major goals. The other major goal was satisfied at the Trophy Dash. After he lofted his prize above his head, two trophy girls kissed him on each cheek. He excitedly told his dad that he didn’t even need to ask for the kisses. “I was pretty fast, so I was hoping I was going to win,” Donovan said. “I was really excited.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Brentwood’s Ryland hangs on for win The roar of the Antioch Speedway crowd drowned out the roaring pack of limited late models as Brentwood’s Fred Ryland tested all 50 years of Larry Damitz’s experience when they raced to the checkered flag in one of the most thrilling feature events in recent history at the 3/8-mile clay oval. Tied in points, Damitz and Ryland continued a season-long battle that’s the talk of the central California racing scene. The two wove through the full field and emerged in front of the pack midway through the feature. Until the last lap, Damitz, 82, appeared to have a slight edge on Ryland as they raced side by side. Then, Ryland got under Damitz in the third turn, the checkered flag waving. The two slid to the wall, as Mike Gustafson took the low groove in hopes of a win. Damitz kept his foot on the gas, holding position as Ryland took the checkered flag from him, and Gustafson was inches away from taking second. “It was a good race until the last lap,” a humble Ryland said in victory lane. “I don’t want to win that way.” Damitz smiled and shook it off. “He lost traction; he had his left tires down in the gutter and he picked up moisture,” Damitz said. “I saw it coming. I could only ride the wall and hope to get by.” Gustafson had a bird’s-eye view of the whole thing. “I knew there was going to be a big problem, and I didn’t want to be there when it happened,” he said. “(Damitz) had me by a bumper for second at the finish.” For Hayward’s Danny Malfatti, victory was sweet in the All Star Wingless Sprint Main Event.

Perennial Antioch wingless sprint favorite Dan Gonderman tried to chase down Malfatti through the final laps of the race, but was forced to settle for second. “(Gonderman) shook my hand and said it was good to race with me,” Malfatti said. “It was amazing. I’m in shock. I didn’t think I would win. Out there, I kept thinking he was going to pass me any moment.” Malfatti put together a solid team for the new sprint car season: sponsor Z Gallery, top-notch crew chief Tom Esposito and engine builder Skip Govea. He thanked Brian Matherly of Kaeding Performance and Steve Shaw in victory lane, but proclaimed two people were respon-

sible for his nearly instant success. “My wife Carole, and Jimmy Sills,” he said. “I wanted to be a sprint car driver so I went to Sills’ school and he encouraged me; he told me I had what it takes.” From victory lane, Malfatti made a call to legendary sprint car driver Sills. “We were bad fast tonight,” he said. “You’re usually calling me; now I can call you.” The DIRTcar West modified feature was filled with crashes – one that eliminated Scott Busby and almost sidelined Troy Foulger. Randy McDaniel of Marysville, in a torn and tattered modified, charged past San Anselmo’s Michael Paul with two laps to go. “Do I have a car left?” was the first thing he asked in victory lane. “Actu-

He was able to repair his damaged car well enough during an extended caution. “It was a demo derby tonight,” he said. “We came back from 20th five times. We broke a brake line, lost a bumper, the doors are hanging off the body, and I went through all 30 tear-offs. But the track was hooked up to the car, so I was able to keep coming back.” Paul’s impressive run saw him leading most of the feature. “It came down to the car – my car runs better on a smoother track, less tacky and more dry-slick,” he said. “I’m exhausted from working that hard to try for the win.” Spanky Grenert from Travis Air Force Base outran Ricardo Rivera in the Dwarf main event. “I’ve been to this track four times, and won four times,” he said in victory lane. “Ricardo and I raced together in the nationals, and I love racing with him here.” Justin Silveira topped Shawna Vannucchi in the Four-Banger feature. “She was tough – she kept hitting the middle groove,” Silveira said. “I had to go down to the bottom of the track.” Dan McCown won the Super Hobby Stock main event, Gene Haney closing the gap late in the race.

Family bonds strengthened by Trilogy Where to retire – it’s an important consideration that for many involves being close to family and friends. In fact, maintaining positive relationships has been linked to healing, happiness and health. Homeowners at Trilogy at The Vineyards say their community offers endless opportunities to strengthen bonds with loved ones and remain fully engaged throughout retirement. “I really feel I have the best of all worlds here,” said Jackie Pelletier, Trilogy at The Vineyards member and grandmother to Colby, 16, and Olivia, 10, who live in Discovery Bay. “We can see our grandkids whenever we like and still

have a full life with our friends.” Jackie, a former hairdresser, and her husband Dale, a former Silicon Valley executive, moved to The Vineyards from the Shea Homes Silver Creek Valley Country Club in East San Jose to be with family. “We used to see the girls on the weekends, and it was always sad to leave and go back home,” said Jackie. “My daughter is a single mom, so we want to be there as much as needed to help with the girls. We love living here so much and have such a sense of wellness from being close to both our family and friends now. I feel so blessed to live here.” Jackie’s desire to be near family is a common motivation for many new residents at Trilogy. “So many of our members move here to be close to their children and grandchildren,” said Helen Akkawi, senior sales associate at Trilogy at The Vineyards. “It’s fun to see members enjoying grandchildren at the swimming pool or having lunch on the patio at Club Los Meganos. Connection is a major tenet of the Trilogy philosophy, and its Active Lifestyle Communities offer a dynamic environment designed to foster wellness through relationships with family, as well as old and new friends. “I had lunch with someone today who has lived here for over three years,” said The Vineyards resident Mike Crosby. “He’s just as excited today as the day he moved here. He was at water aerobics this morning. He played tennis this week, and he plays golf, too.” Crosby and his wife purchased a home at The Vineyards after they left Los Angeles for a job opportunity. When they began shopping for a home, they soon realized that a wholesome environment and a neighborhood that was socially driven and active were important factors in their next residence. “My wife and I love to cycle, and we like wine. We like social aspects like that,” said Crosby. “We contacted a realtor. The realtor recommended Trilogy. In this marketplace, we could have had any choice of home and been able to move right in. Instead, with Trilogy, we purchased a lifestyle.” Trilogy at The Vineyards is more than just a residence. Members, as well as their guests, have access to extensive amenities such as the award-winning Club Los Meganos, a new 34,000-square-foot social hub that offers diverse fitness classes and high-end equipment at the Delta Athletic Club, luxurious treatments at Sawã Spa, two pools, a culinary studio and bistro-style restaurant, event center and grand living room. Outdoor facilities include The Los Olivos Tennis Pavilion with four courts to choose from, three miles of wine country walking trails and more. Trilogy at The Vineyards in Brentwood, nestled into 30 acres of active vineyards, 18 acres of olive orchards, and in the shadow of Mount Diablo, is just an hour’s drive from San Francisco. Trilogy’s communities have been ranked No. 1 in the country in customer service three years in a row. More information on Trilogy at The Vineyards, with new homes ranging from 1,465 to 2,853 square feet and starting from the $390s, is available at www.trilogylife. com/vineyards.

Customize your wedding with color

W

hite will probably never lose its place in a wedding, but a Customize and brighten up your wedding at the same time with color, such as the bright springtime colors in these bouquets.

growing number of brides are turning to color to help personalize their special day. From a pop of color on a white or ivory wedding gown to entire themes that carry throughout the flowers, décor, favors and accessories, color sets the mood and makes a statement about your personal style.

“Brides are embracing color as another way to customize their weddings,” said Ray Miller of My Wedding Reception Ideas.com, a leading online resource for brides seeking unique wedding favors, wedding decorations and wedding supplies. “Customizing with color offers brides such a range of creativity. They can choose colors that honor their heritage, evoke the atmosphere of a specific place, or celebrate a memory or experience that is special to the wedding couple.” If you’ll be saying “I do” in 2011, Miller offers some advice for using color to help create the wedding of your dreams:

Tips for choosing a color “When it comes to choosing colors for your wedding – whether it’s for accessories, table linens, bridesmaid gowns or even a wedding gown accent – the only unbreakable rule should be that you must love the colors you choose,” Miller said. Keep in mind, however, that different colors will create different moods and not all colors will feel like a good fit for your

wedding depending upon where and when you hold it. For example, if your goal is to create a wedding that captures the fresh, innocent aura of spring, vibrant red table linens and ice-blue bridesmaids’ gowns will be in conflict with that atmosphere. “Certain colors are traditionally associated with each season,” Miller notes. “If you’re emphasizing a seasonal effect, keep in mind the colors that the natural world wears during that season.” Popular colors this spring and summer

include hot pink, apple green, celadon, pine green, clementine orange and yellow. Heading into fall, look for amber, chestnut, dark tangerine and brick red. Winter weddings sport colors ranging from Santasuit red and Christmas-tree green to oyster gray, ice blue and pale purple.

disappointed. Buy too much and you’ll waste money and be faced with the challenge of getting rid of leftovers. The reception experts at My Wedding Reception Ideas.com, a leading online resource for brides seeking unique wedding favors, decorations and supplies, offer these tips for calculating how much you’ll need of key reception items: Beverages All that dancing and celebrating means your guests will be working up a thirst. A good rule of thumb is to plan for one drink per person per hour. The makeup of your crowd will determine the bottom line. Lots of kids? You’ll need less alcohol and more

soft drinks. Plenty of adults who love a good party? Adjust the amount of alcohol accordingly. Here are some averages to give you a starting point: ♦ Beer: three to four beers per person. ♦ Champagne: two glasses per person (mostly for the toasts). ♦ Wine: three-quarters of a bottle per person. One bottle of wine or champagne yields about six to seven glasses. ♦ Soft drinks: three to four servings per person. A 2-liter bottle holds seven to nine servings. Err on the side of caution and order more than you think you’ll need – about a third more is standard. Check with your distributor before you order; some will allow you to return unopened bottles.

Food Limit the cocktail and hors d’oeuvre time to an hour or 90 minutes. You don’t want guests filling up before the main event. Estimate three hors d’oeuvres per person per hour – roughly five per person for the entire time. If your reception will be a cocktail/hors d’oeuvres event without a sit-down dinner, increase your calculations to 12 pieces per guest. If you’re serving a sit-down dinner, one plate per person per course should be your starting point. Ask the kitchen/caterer to keep extras on hand in case a guest requests seconds or last-minute guests arrive. Your baker will recommend the size of wedding cake you’ll need based on how many guests will attend. As some guests

The

• • • • • • • • •

might want seconds or bring friends to the party, estimate more servings than invited guests. If you serve desserts other than cake, estimate one to two servings per guest. Napkins Personalized or plain, linen or three-ply, wedding napkins are a wedding reception must. It’s hard to imagine going overboard and providing too many napkins, but it could happen – and if it does, you’ll be using those napkins at your first anniversary celebration. To ensure your napkin buying is on target with your needs, follow these guidelines: ♦ Two to three cocktail napkins per guest for the bar area. ♦ One cocktail-sized napkin per guest for the cake table. ♦ One and a half dinner or luncheon napkins per guest at the meal table if you won’t be using linen napkins. For example, for 100 guests, plan for 150 dinner napkins. Favors This one seems obvious – one favor per guest. In reality, however, you need to allow for breakage (what if someone drops a box of favors on the way into the reception hall and several shatter?) and guests who ask to take a favor home for a relative or friend who wasn’t able to attend. Increasing your favor purchase by just 10 percent won’t cost much more, but allows you to send guests home with an extra favor or two. – Courtesy of ARA Content

‘Something old, something new’

S

omething old, something new, something borrowed, something … unique. To make

a wedding both fun and sophisticated, modern brides are giving the old wedding adage a playful twist. If you’re planning your wedding, or helping someone special plan her own, here are some modern variations on the traditional theme: Something old Something old represents the bride’s past. Personalize this tradition by incorporating a small memento from you and your fiancé’s past together. Did you keep something from one of your favorite dates? Maybe you still have the ticket stub from the first concert you attended together, or the wine cork from your first date. Brides are tucking these small items into their bouquets to bring them good luck. At a special moment during the evening, you can reveal the keepsake to your husband and remember how far you’ve come as a couple. Something new Scent creates powerful memories, and today’s brides are taking notice. Find a new fragrance that perfectly fits your special moment. For years to come, the fragrance

will remind you and your husband of your wedding day. A wedding calls for a memorable scent such as twirl by kate spade new york, perfect for this joyous and festive occasion. A fresh floral bouquet mingles with pink watermelon and red currant, while luminous musks and a touch of French macaroon add that wink of surprise that will keep your husband-to-be enamored and your guests intrigued. Something borrowed According to tradition, something should be borrowed from a person who has a happy marriage. But your something borrowed needn’t be an object. Think outside the box. Perhaps you want to honor your grandparents and borrow some of the vows they recited those many years ago. Or maybe your best friend has an insight about marriage – a nugget you can print on the dessert napkins for all guests to enjoy. Feeling musical? Ask your parents what song was played during their first wedding dance and surprise them by borrowing it for your own. Something blue Looking for something unique for your guests to take home as a thank-you token? Wrap up blue candies (blue lollipops are a fun choice) in gift bags accompanied by a note thanking them for being part of your special day.

Ask your parents what song was played for their wedding dance and borrow it for your own. The modern bride is always finding unique ways to incorporate tradition into her wedding. Those old, new, borrowed and blue somethings – if they’re personal and meaningful – will make your wedding even more memorable. – Courtesy of ARA Content PHOTOGRAPHY WITH PASSION AND FLAIR

Planning the perfect honeymoon

H

e proposed, you said “Yes!” and now you’re in the throes of planning

your dream wedding ceremony – and let’s not forget the romantic honeymoon. Honeymoon planning can be easy or complicated, depending on the trip you want to take. Since stays at all-inclusive resort hotel on a beach or cruises with limited ports of call don’t require multiple lodging or transportation arrangements, they make for easier honeymoons. If you’re on a tight wedding budget, you and your sweetheart might want to take a honeymoon closer to home. If you’re both baseball fans, for example, a whirlwind tour of several cities with major league fields would make for a memorable honeymoon. Here are some tips to help you plan your honeymoon: ♦ Pick a destination together. Discuss with your soon-to-be spouse what activities or sights you want to see together. You might want to pick a location where neither of you has traveled previously. Or plan your honeymoon around an event that brought the two of you together.

Careful planning for your honeymoon can help keep it footloose and fancy free, no matter where in the world you go. ♦ If the bride plans to change her name, she should book her tickets in her maiden name, since she won’t have

If you’re leaving the country, get your passport and visa (if needed) ready. The U.S. Department of State provides plenty of information about travel warnings and alerts abroad based on political uprisings and natural disasters, plus information on required immunizations. You can register your travel plans with the U.S. Department of State to help ensure you’re easy to reach should your family need to contact you or should an emergency arise abroad. Visit www. travel.state.gov. And don’t forget to research typical temperatures for the time of year you’ll be honeymooning so you can pack the proper clothes.

♦ Whether you’re flying overseas or driving to a nearby locale, invest in medical evacuation and travel assistance memberships. On Call International’s programs provide help for mishaps ranging from lost passports to lost baggage to canceled or postponed flights. And if you get sick or injured while on your honeymoon, On Call can help you find medical care – and get back home. Visit www. oncallinternational. com to learn more.

Follow these tips for a safe and fun honeymoon, and enjoy the beginning of your life together. – Courtesy of ARA Content

Your wedding colors can be used in virtually every aspect of your big day, from the bridal bouquet and decor in the ceremony location to table linens and accessories for the reception. Accessory collections are an easy way to carry your chosen color throughout the wedding. For example, at My Wedding Reception Ideas.com, you’ll find accessory collections cataloged by color. These collections allow you to continue your color theme – whether it’s a traditional shell pink, a rich royal purple or even camouflage – with color-specific accessories such as flower-girl baskets, ring-bearer pillows, guestbooks and garters. What’s more, you can customize table linens and even guest favors using your chosen colors.

Wedding gowns and color For decades in America, white and ivory have reigned when it comes to wedding gowns. However, the color trend that began last year with pops of color appearing on bridal fashion runways has continued in 2011. This year, brides have more options than ever if they’re looking to use color to make a personal statement with their wedding gown. From gowns that feature beading and crystals in sparkling hues to floral accents

And if you haven’t yet chosen a gown, you might discover one with a touch of color that can become the color theme for your entire wedding. – Courtesy of ARA Content

Guests were invited to scoop their own selection of flavors from a gorgeous reception table filled with huge bowls of pink grapefruit, cotton candy, raspberry and strawberry daiquiri jellybeans. The hot citrus colors of the tropics are the fashion colors of the bridal world this season. And the jelly beans from the California company that sent the candy to President Ronald Reagan come in a full palette of each color. The versatile sweets add a new twist to the traditional wedding bonbonnieres. Savvy brides are filling satin bags with bright jewel-like jelly beans.

Couples sweating the details of their weddings might not anticipate kiddie meltdowns or bloopers. Children’s maturity level should be considered before enlisting their help. Here are some other strategies: ♦ Young children serving as flower girls or ring bearers should be able to walk down the aisle without coaxing. ♦ Should children prove competent to walk down the aisle unattended, they can also take their seats next to their parents

after they reach the front. ♦ A reasonable minimum age for a wedding participant is 5 or older, when children can appreciate the significance of the event. ♦ Consult with the officiant of the ceremony. The venue might have rules governing children in the ceremony. ♦ All those participating in the ceremony should be invited to the reception. If you decide to throw a kids-free party, reconsider including children in the ceremony. ♦ Think about another role for young children that won’t disrupt the proceedings. Perhaps they can help hand out birdseed or small bottles of bubbles to use when the couple has finished their vows. Or give children disposable cameras and allow them to capture a kids’-eye view of the wedding. Couples who desire to include children in the ceremony must accept the possibility of slip-ups. Keeping an open mind and exercising patience can make for memorable moments – and make for a refreshing mood lightener at a solemn occasion. – Courtesy of Metro Creative

Cost-cutting tips for newlyweds the aisle and returned from your honeymoon,

one of the next steps you look forward to is buying a home. Though there are deals to be had in any real estate market, the cost of home ownership is something many newly married couples can’t afford right away. A few cost-cutting practices, however, can help you get there: Learn to cook Doing your own cooking is not only a rewarding activity; it saves you a significant amount of money. Contrary to popular belief, cooking isn’t terribly difficult. Gourmet meals might require some natural culinary inclination, but more standard fare can be as simple as following a recipe. For those who’ve never stepped up to the stove, it might be a good idea to take cooking lessons. Couples who learn to cook together might also find it strengthens their relationship.

Furnish the home piecemeal One advantage today’s newlyweds have over those of yesteryear is that many live together before walking down the aisle. This means they’re not really starting from scratch once they get married. A typical modern couple already owns enough furniture and other household items to get by once they’ve moved into their new home. For those concerned about how they’re going to furnish a home once they’ve signed on the dotted line, one way to cut those costs is to hang on to what you currently have, and steadily buy new items one by one after you’ve moved in. Rather than face the hefty bill you can expect if you buy everything at once, go the piecemeal route. It’s much less stressful to furnish a home piece by piece. Find ways to make home ownership work First-time homebuyers are typically shocked at the cost of home ownership. Some communities offer classes that explain the homebuying process. Some lenders even offer a lower interest rate to prospective buyers who’ve completed such a class. The discount can save you a significant amount of money over the course of the mortgage, and the classes can give you a better understanding of what you’re getting into by buying a home.
