he Brentwood Police Department is looking into what appears to be the deliberate destruction of trees along Balfour Road. According to a memo from the office of City Manager Donna Landeros, a routine tree inspection found that five 20-year-old sycamores near Claremont Drive had turned brown and appeared to be dying. It was discovered that a ¾-inch hole had been bored into the back of four of the trees. According to Landeros’ memo, it appears that the holes were drilled and poison was injected into the trees. Landscape Manager Aaron Wanden said while the leaves have died, the tree itself is still living, and steps will be taken to rehabilitate the trees once the poisonous chemical has been identified. If the effort fails, the cost to remove and replace the trees is estimated to be $18,600.

Workers strain to put up a saddleback stage in preparation for “Guys and Dolls,” the opening show in the Broadway Under the Stars theater series at the Streets of Brentwood. The show opens July 16.

‘Dolls’ to dance in Brentwood Under the starry shimmer of Brentwood’s night sky, the musical “Guys and Dolls” will grace the stage of the Brentwood Playhouse from July 16 to Aug. 1 at the Streets of Brentwood. “Guys and Dolls” is the first installment of the three-part, summer series Broadway Under the Stars sponsored by the Brentwood Art Society in partnership with the Streets of Brentwood and Steve Kinsella, who will direct all three productions, which also include “Auction Gallery” and “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” Kinsella has been rehearsing with his cast for three weeks and expects the Broadway Under the Stars performances to delight guests who are familiar with “Guys and Dolls” or are experiencing it for the first time.

“Guys and Dolls,” a musical that follows the story of New York City gamblers and the ladies who love them, features classic songs such as “Luck Be a Lady” and “I’ve Never Been in Love Before.” A special saddlespan stage has been brought to Brentwood from Los Angeles to give Broadway Under the Stars a polished look that will allow the audience to feel the glitz of Broadway without leaving East County. Shows begin at 8 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays during each show’s run. Tickets are $17 for general admission and $15 for students and seniors. Refreshments, provided by Code Brew Coffee and More, will be available for purchase. To reserve your tickets, call 925-516-8500, ext. 203.

America’s drug habit becomes Mexico’s war by Corey Hunt Correspondent

This is Part Two of Brentwood native Corey Hunt’s visit to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, which is being wracked by drug war violence. For Part One, go to www.thepress. net. As the taxi driver brought me back to the Mexican Federal Police Headquarters, the words of Gustavo Perez – a young Tijuana police officer I had interviewed a few months earlier – came back into my thoughts. He had described to me the situation in Ciudad Juarez, an industrial border city straddled by western Texas – the city I was about to tour in a police convoy. “Its bad there, in Juarez,” he had said, while holding his arms out as if in possession of an AK-47 assault rifle. “There are shootings everywhere … Juarez and Chihuahua are the most dangerous places in Mexico.” These words should have been enough to make the prospect of a police ride-along through the global drug war’s flashpoint seem like a journey through hell, but the professionalism of the federal policemen brought order to any unease I was feeling. Officer Ulises Rodriguez, who had sat down with me for an interview a day earlier, was waiting for me at 9 a.m. He smiled and enthusiastically waved me into the command center. A white-haired commander who held seniority over Rodriguez scrutinized my passport and media credentials for the

Rodriguez wished me luck as I stepped out of the office and into the garages, where an assortment of police vehicles were organized into rows. Police officers strapped on bulletproof vests and helmets as they readied their assault rifles and walked out to their convoys. I was led into a reconfigured Ford F-150 with several commandos in the back,

their faces concealed by balaclava. As unrelenting violence continues, Mexico’s Federal Police have taken the lead in attempting to bring security and the bustle of daily life back to Juarez. The Army, which had arrived in full force in the city almost three years ago, is steadily being phased out of the metropolitan area. Residents, politicians and international ob-

servers are hopeful that a force with proper law enforcement training will be able to do what the army could not – halt a growing body count that outstrips both Baghdad and Kandahar combined. “There are still Army patrols in Juarez,” Rodriguez said to me during our interview. “Federal Police have taken the lead in the main city – the metropolitan area. The Army and the Federal Police are conducting joint operations throughout the state of Chihuahua. There has not been any trouble with cooperation.” The convoy pulls out of the station and rumbles through the streets of downtown Juarez. I sit in the back, removing my digital camera from my bag in order to capture as much of the experience as possible. Twenty yards in front of me, I can see a commando, gun in hand, standing and leaning against a bar built into the pickup truck. Despite being well armed, police patrols in Juarez and other border cities are often forced into battle with an enemy that is able to get its hands on some of the most sophisticated and dangerous weapons on the market. While it’s obvious that the worst of these weapons – rocket-launchers, hand grenades, roadside explosives and most machine guns – are making their way up from the cocaine belt in Colombia and Central America, Americans often fail to see War page 19A

Crops and props FEDERAL TAX CREDIT EXTENDED Seems like the majority of the calls I received this week were in regards to tax credits. It is a confusing topic, to be sure, and the rules keep changing. Well, the rules just changed again, and this time, for the better! The Federal tax credit is up to $8,000 for first-time buyers, and up to $6,500 if you already own a home and are buying another home. Up until just recently, you had to be in contract on your home by 4/30/10, and then close escrow by 6/30/10. There was a huge rush of contracts signed right before the 4/30/10 deadline. Normally, 60 days is plenty of time to close an escrow, so the 6/30/10 deadline seemed entirely reasonable. Well, several factors have made the 6/30/10 deadline impossible to reach for some buyers. First, loans just take longer now. Lenders want to see more and more verification of everything. Second, there was a huge increase in pendings right before 4/30/10, so the lenders/appraisers/title companies are all swamped right now. This is slowing all processing times down tremendously. And third, many of the homes that went pending were short sales, which can take MUCH longer than 60 days

to close escrow. There are estimates that 180,000 home buyers across the nation (17,700 of them in California) were going to miss out on this tax credit by not being able to close escrow by 6/30/10. So the deadline to close escrow was recently extended out to 9/30/10. It is critical to note that they are NOT extended the deadline to QUALIFY for this credit, you still had to be in contract by 4/30/10. They are just extending the deadline to close escrow. And don’t think you can just backdate your contract. They are already auditing the credits that have already been approved, and they ARE prosecuting those that fudged their qualifications (you may have heard about the prisoners and some fouryear-olds that got tax credits). And it’s not just a slap on the wrist, either. It is loan fraud, which carries possible jail time. [See www.IRS.gov and your tax professional for specifics to your situation.] If you have questions on any other real estate topic, call me at (925) 240-MOVE (6683).

t’s been a long time since biplanes were used for crop dusting around here, partly because small fields call for a more nimble aircraft. It’s still just as surprising to see today’s choppers flying so close to the ground, though, such as this one recently caught in pixels by photographer Stacey Chance. If one of these appears over a field you’re driving past, the most important thing to remember is to keep your eyes on the road, not the whirlybird. Otherwise, you could end up in the cornrows, or worse.

Gown giveaway for military brides A local business has joined a national effort to help make dreams come true for the members of America’s armed forces. Brides Across America, a nationwide organization dedicated to providing free wedding gowns for military brides, recently announced that His & Hers Formal Wear of Brentwood will be giving away free designer wedding gowns July 15-17. His & Hers Formal Wear owners Annette Beckstrand and Susanne Larson have joined forces with BAA Founder Heidi Janson and partners, who have given away more than 3,000 wedding gowns nationwide. “Every little bit helps,” said Heidi. “Bridal salon owners are very generous in their giving, and it is important as an in-

dustry to pull together and make a difference. With tough economic times, military brides are appreciative to have this opportunity to be able to afford their dream wedding.” To qualify, brides must be engaged, be on active duty in the military, or have a fiancé on active duty in either Iraq or Afghanistan. All military brides must show ID, copy of deployment papers, orders or other qualifying proof. Brides do not need to reside in the area where the giveaway is taking place.

Correction A story in last week’s Press reported that the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District would save $1.4 million per year by closing two of its stations. The savings actually came from approval of the entire budget package, of which the station closures were one part. The package also included the elimination

of six firefighter positions previously budgeted but currently vacant, and the cancellation of a contract with Cal Fire to keep the rural Sunshine Station (Marsh Creek/Morgan Territory area) open year-round. The district will save $70,000 in station overhead by closing the two far East County locations.

Oakley celebrates 11 years as a city by Samie Hartley Staff Writer While some Bay Area cities cut back on their Fourth of July festivities this year, Oakley decided to light up the night sky with a fireworks extravaganza – not only to celebrate the birth of a nation, but to celebrate its own cityhood anniversary. Oakley turned 11 this year, and the party was larger than ever for the July 3 event. According to Cindy Coelho of the Oakley Recreation Division, a crowd of more than 8,000 visited the Freedom High School Basin this year to take part in the festivities. She attributed the large turnout to free admission, the fireworks display – and Antioch’s cancellation of its event this year. “Particularly in these difficult economic times, we thought it was important to continue the Oakley Cityhood Celebration, where everyone in the community could come out and enjoy a fun evening with rides, games, food and fireworks all in their own hometown,” Coelho said. “It’s an event that a lot of people look forward to, planning their holiday weekend around the activities. This is a true community event. Everyone is in good spirits; people run into neighbors and friends and everyone is excited, anticipating the fireworks show.” Councilman Bruce Connelley said Oakley makes the Cityhood Celebration a priority every year so that the community has a fun, summer event to attend: “Many kudos should go to the city staff. As usual, ‘Team Oakley’ put on an unbelievable event. Years ago, we set a long-term budget forecast, and going into our new fiscal year with a balanced budget, we were able to keep the patriotic spirit alive in Oakley. It’s amazing with so little tax revenues that we have to draw on that we could still put on this event when so many other cities have cancelled theirs or cut back on them.”

City Manager Bryan Montgomery was also pleased with the city’s ability to put together a family-friendly event for the entire community to enjoy. “The event was a huge success, and we have received many compliments on the event and some suggestions to make it even better for next year,” said Montgomery. “It does seem like every year we see more vendors, more attendees and more positive comments about Oakley now being a ‘real’ community.” Councilman Kevin Romick said the highlight of the event was the fireworks display, a spectacular way to end the evening – surrounded by neighbors, family and friends all gathered together to enjoy “a little small town magic,” which generated plenty of “ooh”s and “ahh”s from the thousands in attendance. In addition to the fireworks display, this year’s celebration featured a variety of children’s activities, including a surf machine, Gyro Extreme, a horse derby game, a Jurassic Adventure obstacle course, a rock-climbing wall, laser tag, a petting zoo, pony rides and the ever-popular Euro-Bungy ride, which made a return to the celebration this year after being a huge hit with the kids last year. A variety of food vendors were also on hand to provide snacks and treats. However, it’s the fireworks display that still has people talking, according to Mayor Pat Anderson: “The celebration was spectacular! Once again, our fireworks were breathtaking. The coordination of music and colorful fire in the sky made the evening magical, and for me, a wondrous time of pride in a city that was created by the will and determination of its citizens and stands as a testament to civic involvement at its finest. Each celebration I find myself wrapped in memories of where we were, where we are, and what we have accomplished.” To view a video of the festivities or to comment on this story, visit www.thepress.net.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Happy Half Year! With June officially behind us, we’re officially half way through 2010 … what a scary thought! In a moment of reflection: how is this year treating you, or rather, how are you treating this year? Are you where you wanted to be when the year started, has your annual list of goals been cut in half with the first half of this year? Without going too deep into your personal life, as your lender, my most important question to you is this: Has your Federal Housing Administration (FHA) mortgage payment been made on time for six consecutive months? It’s an important question, as the history on your FHA mortgage payment is one of the only items checked when “streamlining” your FHA loan. According to the United States Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Web site, “FHA has permitted streamline refinances on insured mortgages since the early 1980s. The ‘streamline’ refers only to the amount of documentation and underwriting that needs to be performed by the lender.” In other words, if the rate on your FHA loan is 5.25% or higher, and your most recent six months’ payments have all been on time, an FHA Streamline refinance can only benefit you. The hard part was qualifying for the home; the

easy part is qualifying for the Streamline refinance and saving money. Again referencing the federal government’s Web site, “Streamline refinances can be done without appraisals, but the new loan amount cannot exceed the original loan amount.” What a way to ring in the half year … a true no-cost loan, insured by the federal government, that can be taken advantage of even if your house is “under water”! Coming full circle and reflecting on this year’s accomplishments … doesn’t everyone wish to have more money saved in December than they started with in January? Mid-year is a perfect time to reflect on where you’re at and where you’re going. By taking advantage of a government program that has been around since the 1980s and refinancing your home into a rate that’s as low as they’ve been since the 1940s, you can only help your overall financial picture in 2010. Don’t let me write an article in December entitled “Year’s End” only to have you kicking yourself for not taking advantage of the potential savings while rates were still under 5.0%! As always, I welcome all questions and/or concerns pertaining to real estate lending on my cell phone, 925-726-1444, or via e-mail, tfreymortgages@yahoo. com. – Advertisement

Thanks for the tour, folks.

Thanks for not throwing in the towel Editor: I’m probably the wrong guy to give a dispassionate critique of Fourth of July celebrations. I grew up in New York, where in the veritable shadow of the Statue of Liberty we took these things with great zeal. To this day, aside from religious observances, it remains as blessed a day as I can imagine. As for exhilarating, unadulterated fun, what’s there to beat barbecues, hometown parades and fireworks! So with a three-rocket salute, let’s give credit where credit is due for this year’s Antioch festivities, scaled down as they may have been. In the end, the torch of honored birthday was kept lit as well it deserved to be. For this we can thank the venue provider, Somersville Towne Centre; event organizers Sue Davis and Martha Parsons; and the Mormon Temple Choir for its splendid indoor concert. We also should applaud Allen Payton for his valiant college try in raising money for fireworks and attendant police presence. Unfortunately, by the time this private-source fundraising got traction, the police scheduling was impossible. I did my routine this year playing Yankee Doodle Dandy, but my wife took the year off from our family tradition of walking the parade. It’s been our time to shout out red, white and blue and to do what any man or woman needs to do more of in this all-too-serious game of life: have some good old fun. In past years we have reveled as Popeye and Olive, Sonny and Cher, Superman and Superwoman, Bill and Monica and Elvis and Priscilla. We’ve loved every minute of not being afraid to be a bit silly. Robert Frost put it well with a tongue-in-cheek repartée with his Creator: “Dear Lord, please forgive me for the little jokes I have played on Thee as I try my best to forgive Thee for the great big one Thou hast played on me.” In the end it was a decidedly sweet event. Though there were a couple of hundred

viewers and not the usual 15,000, it had some nice touches: Congressman Garamendi with a large contingent; a sizeable and enthusiastic group from the Islamic Center of the East Bay; gymnasts, clowns, a County Fair beauty queen, classic cars and firetruck. Granted, it wasn’t folksy, alluring Rivertown. There were no Clydsedale horses, tanks or motorcycles to amaze; no marching bands or darling elementary-age dance troupes to charm; no Pearl of the Orient Filipino, Iwo Jima reenactment or myriad other floats to marvel at; no tri-tip, corn-on-the-cob or peach cobbler vendor stands to salivate over; no blues, country or rock bands to swing to; no rockets red glare aerial showers gladdening the night sky for the townsfolk to oooh and aaah at. Grandma, they won’t take Christmas away, will they? But forgive me; I came to acknowledge and to exult; not to diminish and to whine. The event was the best under the pressing circumstances and the organizers deserve kudos. Thankfully, they didn’t throw the towel in or buy into the argument that this is all useless frivolity. Rituals and civic celebrations are not hollow contrivances; they bind and inspire the collective public body. So next year let’s get an earlier jump on private financing and scheduling. Antioch is, after all, at heart an All-American town. Let’s again put on our full colors for Old Glory. Walter Ruehlig Antioch

Heartbreaking indifference Editor: On Friday night, the incredible Brentwood Community Band played “The Star Spangled Banner” as the first number. How very sad it was for us Americans who feel such pride and emotion when we hear our country’s anthem. We’re older Americans and we stand up and put our hand on our heart. None – literally none – of the young people or their parents showed any respect to our flag. They sat on the ground. They have not taught their children about the traditions. We got all choked up, with tears running down our faces, to hear that song pledging our allegiance and our love to our country. To look around and see others just sitting on the ground talking and paying no respect is heartbreaking. C. Adams Brentwood

Thanks for supporting student art Editor: On behalf of the Brentwood Art Society and Brentwood Union School District, we are proud to say that the eighth annual Community Student Art Show was a big success.

Help us stop the closures Editor: I came to Discovery Bay in 1970 when there were only four houses. I came with my father to build the fifth. When we were finished, we built the original office complex at the entrance to Discovery Bay Boulevard for Discovery Bay Corp. We relocated our business to those offices and from there we helped to build this community. When the 50th house in D.B. was completed, my wife and I moved in. We’ve been here ever since. When we moved to Discovery Bay we knew everyone. Discovery Bay was so iso-

lated that everyone quickly became friends. Now most of those friends are gone. Some have moved, many have passed. In those days, we were part of the Byron Fire Protection District. We were served by that station and its volunteers. We were oblivious to the problems in that relationship until the day one of our neighbors had a heart attack. Help just couldn’t get there in time to make any difference, and with his death, a new realization set in. It was then, in 1975, that a small group of us went to the Byron fire district to enlist. Reluctant to change, the Byron department was hesitant to include us. However, we wouldn’t accept no for an answer. After a lengthy battle, we prevailed and established the first Discovery Bay Fire Station, a 4x8 shed. The “station” housed first-aid equipment and our turnouts without pants. At first, we were satisfied with our success. Then one night at 3 a.m. there was a fire. It started in a kiln in the garage of a house on Discovery Point. The volunteers arrived, only to watch the house burn as we waited for an engine company to arrive from Byron. Byron’s first engine arrived 10 minutes after the alarm was sounded. We couldn’t find fault in their response, but even so, the house was fully involved and lost before they arrived. It was only by the grace of God that no lives were lost. That fire showed us that we had set the bar too low. We needed more than a few volunteers with turnouts. We needed a real station. We needed to make a case and prove our need. Making the case was easy. The saving of lives and property in an emergency situation is dependent upon time of response. Our insurance rates and property values are reflected in those times. There are other factors, of course. However, to put it simply, when we completed our station in 1980, staffed it with 24 trained volunteers and equipped it, our ISO rate was reduced, our insurance rates went down, our lives and property became safer and our property values increased. Closing our station will reverse that course. So, why has the East Contra Costa County Fire Protection District voted to close our station? Simple: just follow the money, your money. The men who made this decision are not from Discovery Bay; they’re not from Byron. They are from the communities where the stations will remain open, and will benefit with increased manpower at our expense. The district chief has stated publicly that the closure of the Byron and Discovery Bay stations will save only $35,000 each. Manpower is only being shifted. That seems like a small price to pay to maintain stations in communities that contribute over one and a half million dollars in taxes to support this district each year. That is 17 percent of the district’s budget. That is your money going see Letters page 19A

Thinking About a Short Sale or Foreclosure? The Law You Should Know by Joan Grimes, Esq. Before you consider a short sale or foreclosure, here is the law you should know. First, there are two types of debts. They are unsecured and secured. Unsecured debt is the bare promise to pay. The most common form is credit card debt. Secured debt, on the other hand, has two parts. The first part is the bare promise to pay which on a car loan or real estate loan is the Promissory Note. What makes secured debt different than unsecured debt is the security given by the borrower to ensure the promise is kept. This security on real property is called a Deed of Trust and on a car loan it is the lienholder on the Certificate of Title. Second, on a real estate loan, there are two different types of promises to pay. Non-Recourse or Recourse. A Non-recourse loan is (1) the loan or loans obtained to purchase a 1-4 unit property in which the borrower occupies at least one unit or (2) seller carry back. Everything else is recourse debt i.e. the refinance of the real property, lines of credit, the loan or loans used to purchase a rental property. Third, under California law, a short sale or foreclosure can stay on a credit report for up to 7 years. Fourth, personal liability depends on whether you do a short sale or foreclosure. If you do a short sale, you can have personal liability unless it is waived by the lender. Remember, a short sale is just like any other sale and if you don’t pay the full amount, the lender can request payment. If you allow your property to be foreclosed in a non-judicial foreclosure sale, you will not have any personal liability as to the loan that is foreclosed on because California is an anti-deficiency state i.e. the lender waives its right to come after you on the loan that they foreclosed on. However, if there are junior liens to the foreclosing lien, they will have the right to sue you after the foreclose. They are called “sold out” juniors i.e. they

lost their lien, but they still have the promise to pay and thus have the right to sue you on the promissory note. Fifth, in every short sale or foreclosure, there are tax implications. The IRS wants to know two things. They are (1) did you make any money on the deal and (2) did you borrow any money which was not repaid. If you made money on the deal including taking out cash to buy another house, buy another car, pay off a credit card, you may have gain. If you borrowed money which is not repaid either through a short sale or foreclosure, you may have Cancellation of Debt Income (“CODI”). There are exceptions to the CODI, but be very cautious of tax implications because it is a very complicated area of the law. In conclusion, a short sale or foreclosure without tax and legal advice is like jumping into the middle of the ocean with no life vest. Don’t do it. The California Association of Realtor is so concerned about this issue that the Short Sale Addendum specifically tells sellers to obtain tax and legal advice prior to proceeding with a short sale. Help is available to you. Do not take on personal liability or tax liability which could have been eliminated through a bankruptcy or reduced with first obtaining tax and legal advice.

Political writer to speak at Trilogy Carla Marinucci, the award-winning senior political writer for the San Francisco Chronicle, will be the featured speaker on Saturday, July 17 at 1 p.m. at the 2010 Keynote Lecture Series in the Mt. Diablo Events Center at Trilogy at The Vineyards in Brentwood. Marinucci, who has covered national and state politics for the Chronicle since 1996, has been the paper’s senior political writer for four California gubernatorial elections and four presidential elections. The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza recently named her one of the nation’s best state-based political reporters. In her first job as a political reporter for the Hearst-owned San Francisco Examiner in 1991, Marinucci covered the downfall of the Soviet Union from Moscow and interviewed Boris Yeltsin and Mikhail Gorbachev. Since that time, she has traveled with and covered Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama on dozens of official visits to California, and accompanied Gov. Schwarzenegger on trade missions to Shanghai, Hong Kong, Beijing and Mexico. Marinucci was named a 2003 and 2007 Media Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. She has been a Casey Journalism Fellow at the University of Maryland. She was also the recipient of a Rotary International Journalism Scholarship at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico in Mexico City, where she studied Latin American economics and history. Active adults age 55 and over are invited to attend. A limited number of complimentary tickets may be reserved by calling 925-809-7100.

Letters from page 16A into their stations. They will argue that they are leaving the Bixler station open and increasing its manpower. That should be of little comfort to you if you live east of Newport Drive. Just ask any firefighter. So, is there a better solution for the district? Certainly: volunteers. The union will object, but the simple fact is that before we had a paid department, volunteers did a better job protecting your property. I urge you, set aside this liberal agenda and bring back volunteers or paid-on-call personnel. Keep our stations open. If the district persists with the closures what can we do? First, we should seek an injunction, and pursue the matter in court. Second, we fight to reestablish our own fire district. We take back our stations, we take back our equipment, and we staff our stations with paid-on-call volunteers who are prepared to save lives and property, not just foundations. In closing, I would like to say this is not a fight I wanted to join. For 18 years I led the fight to establish a viable fire department in Discovery Bay. From its beginning, I was the officer in charge. I left 17 years ago, after 18 years of service, 13 years as a battalion chief of Byron and East Diablo fire districts. I left wanting to put the politics of the fire district behind me. I thought I had, until two days ago when an old friend who had stood beside me as we fought to establish the department in Discovery Bay asked for my help. So, here I am. Will you join us?

sion that for all its struggles, Mexico and its Federal Police forces are doing something noble – even if they are engaged in a fight not only against militant drug traffickers, but also a growing and seemingly endless American lust for drugs. This police patrol shift had been safe, but every day brings something different. Just over a week after I left Ciudad Juarez, a routine Federal Police patrol came under fire, resulting in a shootout that left a number of people dead and sprayed a hail of gunfire across the border into El Paso’s city hall, a disturbing reminder to Americans that the brutality of the drug cartels will not always be contained in the border towns and slums of our southern neighbor.

COMMUNITY

Music from page 1A (funding) cushion for the following year. Using last year’s cushion and this year’s donations, we are able to put on this year’s event. Next year’s event is questionable.” Next year’s event may depend on the turnout at the July 17 benefit concert at the El Campanil Theatre. Tickets are available at 604 W. Second Street or by phone at 925-757-9500. The lineup for this year’s Blues Fest includes E.C. Scott, Mitch Woods & his Rocket 88s, Pat Wilder, Terry Hanck, Ron Hacker, and Rhythm Doctors. For more information, go to www.deltabluesfestival.net. Like the Blues Festival, the summer concert series is free. And this year it’s in a new location: Waldie Plaza, a scenic waterfront area across from City Hall. The Arts and Cultural Foundation of Antioch (ACFA) decided to move the concerts from Prewett Park to save the $1,200 per concert cost of renting the city’s stage. The stage will still be used for the Delta Blues Festival, but for the summer concert series the bands will set up at the foot of the plaza in front of a great view of the river and passing trains. “You have to look for the silver lining in everything,” said ACFA Executive Director Diane Gibson-Gray. “It would be great to have a stage, but we can make it work on the sidewalk. (It’s got) the river, the Delta breeze. The trains coming through can be frustrating, or part of the whole event. The Delta Blues Festival has a great time when the trains come through. I think it’s going to be great.” Music fans who have been regularly attending the Antioch concerts will be happy to see many favorites returning again this year, and that there’s a nice variety of music. The series kicks off July 24 with Vocal-Ease & The Boogie Men performing music from the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s. The

The Antioch summer concerts, seen here last year in Prewett Park, will be moving to Waldie Plaza in downtown Antioch this summer, kicking off July 24. one new band, the Bell Brothers, will play country music on July 31. The following Saturdays feature Special Request (R&B, pop, urban jazz), The Floorshakers (funk, soul, rock), The Love Handles (pop, rock) and The PhDs (Latin jazz). “I wanted people to be able to stay in town and enjoy bands that have a following,” said Gibson-Gray. “Vocal-Ease has played for us forever. They’ve always been the kickoff band; it’s kind of like a tradition.” Another potential silver lining with

the relocation to Waldie Plaza is that it could lead to larger turnouts. Past summer concerts have averaged 200-400, while the Blues Festival attracts about 5,000 in the course of the daylong showcase. The concerts start at 6 p.m. and end around 8 p.m. Bring your blankets, lawn chairs, picnic dinners. Alcohol and smoking are not permitted in Waldie Plaza. For more information, call Diane Gibson-Gray at 925-325-9897, e-mail diane@art4antioch.org. or visit www. art4antioch.org.

By the way, although the ACFA budget has been cut severely, putting the future of the organization in jeopardy, Gibson-Gray plans to continue providing art shows, particularly with volunteer help and outside funding. The sixth annual Celebration of Art, one of ACFA’s most popular exhibits, will wrap up this Saturday, July 10 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Antioch Historical Society Museum (1500 W. Fourth St.), featuring the works of more than 55 local artists. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

ten was there, too, doing her stately wave from a convertible. One of the largest contingents was the Islamic Center of the East Bay, whose members proudly carried their group’s banner. Almost as big was East County Military Families and Friends, whose members carried a giant “care package” representing the group’s primary troop-

support function. When the procession around the mall was complete, everyone headed inside to take refuge from the scorching sun and enjoy the Temple Hill Choir, which presented a patriotic music program. As the event drew to a close and the attendees headed off for barbecues and swimming pools, it was clear that the idea

of a small-but-heartfelt observation actually had some advantages. “Mommy,” one tot was overheard to say as she walked, waving the small flag she’d been given. “I think we should do this every year. Daddy always says bad words when we take the car to the fireworks.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Local racer winning on Supermoto stage

Mike Camera, points leader in the Nor-Cal Championship series, is setting a scorching pace on the big tracks of Supermoto.

by Michael Dixon Correspondent For the last decade, the sport of Supermoto has been gaining popularity in the United States. And as the sport’s tracks require a large space, the West is a perfect region for the flourishing of Supermoto. The current popularity of Supermoto has been a good thing for Mike Camera, a recent graduate of Stockton’s Venture Academy, who lived in Brentwood until he was in third grade. Camera described Supermoto as “70 percent asphalt and 30 percent dirt. It’s a dirt bike with street tires and rims. It became really popular in the United States somewhere around 1999 or 2000; it had always been popular in Europe. Now, it’s really big in the Northern California, Nevada and Oregon area. And that’s where we do most of our races. “We go around and race at big spaces, like casinos that have really big parking lots. We bring in all the barrels of hay to set up the track.” Although Camera took up Supermoto in 2003, when he was 11, he and his family were interested in riding long before that. “I’ve always ridden motorcycles,” said Camera. “My parents got me started – they’ve been riding motorcycles

since they were 15. One day my dad took the Harley out and he saw a bunch of people riding Moto at Supermoto cross. He came back that night and told me that I had to go out and see it with him the next week. “I went with him the next week and I was totally hooked. Everyone was just really nice to us. The next week I brought my gear down and a guy let me ride his bike and that was just amazing for me. I was hooked again.” In the years since, Camera has become one of the AMA Super Lites Series’ top racers. “In 2007, I won the 400 Amateur, and in 2008 I won the 250 Amateur. Both of those were regional. In 2009, I finished eighth place at the AMA National race at the Miller Motorsports Park in Salt Lake City. Then in 2008, it was around the July Fourth weekend when I had my first race as a professional in Seattle. And that was a big thrill for me. It was really exciting to be 16 years old and race as a professional.” The early stages of the 2010 season are bringing Camera similar success. “This season, I’ve won three of the first four races and I’m the points leader in the Nor-Cal Championship series.” (In the see Supermoto page 5B

SUMMER Twins go back-to-back District 4 Tournament of Champions (TOC), playing all the league champions from Martinez, Pinole-Hercules, Concord/Walnut Creek, Pittsburg, East County and Clayton Valley leagues. In a tightly contested first-round game against Pittsburg, Antioch’s Twins pulled out a 65 victory in the bottom of the sixth inning when Gutierrez walked to start the inning and took an extra base on a sacrifice bunt by Cast. Lea Schneiderman delivered the game-deciding hit to advance the Twins to the second round. Cast (17-1) was dominating, striking out 14. In the second round, the Twins spotted Concord/Walnut Creek four runs on errors early but settled down and battled back for an 8-6 win. Cast (18-1) got the win, striking out five, and Lynd came on to stifle Concord for the save in the final three innings. In the championship game against Martinez, the Twins’ lack of offense was compounded by miscues in the field, leading to a season-ending loss to a solid Bear roster loaded with 12-yearolds. It was the second year in a row that Martinez beat the Twins in the championship game. The Twins will be well represented in District 4 All-Star Championships – 10 members of the team have been named to their age-appropriate All-Star squads to represent Antioch in the upcoming All-Star tournament.

The Antioch Twins 9-to-12-year-old Major Softball Division team recently captured its second consecutive league championship by virtue of a stellar 19-1 record, amassing an 18-game win streak to finish off the season. The team’s youth made the championship all the more impressive. With four 10-year-olds on the roster, the Twins fielded the youngest team in the league. At the plate, the Twins’ demolished the competition, winning 12 games by the 10-run mercy rule. The team’s pitching duo was equally impressive. Ace Kylie Cast (16-1) struck out 183 batters (2.67 K’s per inning) and catcher/relief pitcher Grace Lynds (3-0) chalked up nine saves. The Twins combination of aggressive base running, small ball and the powerful bats of Presley Gutierrez, Lea Schneiderman and Jennifer Walters conspired to help the Twins score 288 runs – an average of 14 per game. Nicole Bettencourt, Michaela Vanderklugt and Cast provided solid hitting and defense, only allowing 96 runs for a stingy average of four per game. “What made this team successful was working together as a team,” said Twins Manager Dennis Felix. “It didn’t matter if it was your first year or third year; everyone on the team contributed to making the Twins back-to-back champions.” The Twins carried their win streak into the

Giant comeback nets title The Brentwood PONY League Pinto Jr. division championship was claimed recently by the Giants, which finished third in regular season play but got hot at the right time. The 10-5-1 Giants, coached by Darryl Weeden and Cindy Mallet, also exemplified the true meaning of good sportsmanship and fair play. The championship game against the Braves was a high-scoring roller-coaster ride. At the end of the second inning, the Giants were down by nine runs. Following a pep talk by Coach Darryl, outstanding defensive play ignited the Giants’ comeback. Going into the sixth inning, the Giants had closed the gap to two runs. They dug in at the plate and proceeded to put nine runs on the scoreboard. The Braves answered with five runs of their own, but fell short by a score of 20-18 – and the championship celebration was on. Congratulations, Giants!

Dirt to fly at Speedway by Jack Menges Correspondent The dirt modifieds return to the Antioch Speedway Saturday night for the first time since their big show that brought the fans and race drivers out in droves last month. This time, however, the evening will feature a standard program supported by super stocks, pure stocks, dwarf cars and mini trucks. Meanwhile, another special event is on tap for the local racetrack, when the King of California Golden State 410 sprint cars take over the three-eighths mile oval July 17. As the point race for the season championship demonstrates, the dirt modifieds

have staged some closely contested battles in recent weeks. On top of the point race is Troy Foulger, who has found his way to his share of victories this season. But Foulgerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point lead is a slim 292-286 over the consistent performer Nick DeCarlo. Third place is held down by Jeff Thomasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 262. Although it would take a torrid winning streak to catch t h o s e pace-setters, still in contention are Norman Beck, 240; Bob Motts, 230; Rick Karnes, 224; and Joe Carr, 210. While Mitch Machado has been the dominant figure in the super stocks, he has yet to lock up the season title. Machado holds a 420-390 lead over veteran Larry Damitz, who has racked up numerous runner-up finishes.

Chizoba Okodogbe was named Deer Valley’s Senior Female Athlete of the Year.

Wolverines from page 1B girls 4x400-meter relay that placed at the state meet. She earned a B-plus average and is heading to the University of Oregon on a track scholarship. Under the leadership of Rich Woods, the football team went undefeated in league play. With the notable exception of Pittsburg, the Wolverines ran over league opponents, outscoring them 191-55. In perhaps the most exciting game of the year, Deer Valley won a 35-33 squeaker over Pittsburg in league action – only to get shut out by the Pirates in the playoffs. Eleven Deer Valley teams winning league championships sounds impressive, and is – but turned out to be one less championship than the school won the previous year. “We felt bad about that, felt we could

do more,” said Rhyan. He felt good, however, about the impressive academic performance of many athletes, belying the image of the dumb jock. “We had over 250 athletes during the season that have over a 3.0 GPA,” said Rhyan. “Above a B average during the season – that’s very impressive. Of the 19 spring teams, freshman, JV and varsity, 15 of them had a GPA above a 3.0 – I’m amazed by that. People don’t hear how many of these kids are outstanding individuals and thriving. We are pretty proud of the fact that 9 of those 11 (championship) teams had a cumulative GPA above 3.0.” Another outstanding season was turned in by the girls basketball team, which see Wolverines page 7B

Wolverines from page 6B lost only one league game last year and, under Lindsay Wisely’s coaching, lost only four league games in the past five years. Unfortunately, Wisely, who was herself a star athlete at Deer Valley, has decided to coach at Las Positas College next season. “She was 24 when she took over, brand new out of college – just did a fantastic job,” said Rhyan. “We’ll miss her. To lose her is very difficult for us. She’s the first alum we hired to come back to teach.” She’s been replaced by Mark Anger, who will seek to continue her success. Speaking of successful coaches, Lou Panzella has established both boys and girls volleyball dynasties at the school. Both teams went undefeated for the second year

There’s a correlation with athletic and academic success. It just makes the campus run smoother.” Volleyball player Kurt Kline was the school’s Senior Academic Athlete of the Year. Also going undefeated was the girls golf team, one of whose members, Victoria Leon, was the school’s Senior Academic Athlete of the Year.

Eco Soft Water Technology – Green as it Gets Have you ever seen the trucks of Ecowater Systems, and wondered what those shiny silver tanks are? Or what makes them different from a regular water softener company/water store. Well Ecowater, long before it was fashionable to be called Eco anything, has been helping to reduce water pollution in our communities and surrounding Counties by offering a service of softening water without customers putting wasted salt/potassium or extra waste water down the drain from inefficient automatic water softeners. This service is called portable soft water. The service gives you all the benefits of reduced product usage in your home such as cleaners, shampoos, soaps, fabric softeners, laundry soap and detergents. It also extends the life of plumbing and appliance wear and tear, and saves you money on energy by reducing water heater costs. This is all done without the customer ever lifting a finger or ever carrying another bag of salt again. As communities try to help reduce pollution, some have had to regulate automatic softener use or eliminate their discharge into waste streams. This makes it very hard for them to filter the chlorides from the waste stream to enable reclaimed water use in parks or clean enough to released back into streams or lakes. Ecowater Systems Portable Soft Water is different. They clean the soft water in a controlled environment reusing almost 90% of their water, and the brining discharge is not dumped down the drain. It is used at the East Bay Municipal Utility District facility to create a food for some special bugs that eat it, and other products to create methane gas, which is then turned into energy. Ecowater service is a recognized and approved alternative water conditioning method in many communities. - No equipment to buy - No salt to carry - No maintenance to worry about - Environmentally friendly

For more information on how to make your home green Call Ecowater Systems at 800-287-8798 Or go to www.ecowater.com

Drink a green tea toast to your health Civilizations around the world have used teas to treat sickness and pain, and prominent among them is green tea. Unlike black tea, green tea is not fermented, so its powerful antioxidant, a polyphenol called EGCG, remains unaltered. Evidence suggests that green tea can be effective in the prevention and treatment of certain types of cancer, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis and impaired immune function. Because our mouths are an oxygen-rich environment closely connected to our blood vessels, they provide an ideal habitat for the growth and rapid proliferation of cancer cells. Scientists have confirmed that green tea not only halts the growth of new oral cancer cells but it actually breaks down and kills existing oral cancer cells. A double-blind study of people with leukoplakia, a precancerous oral condition, showed that those in the green tea group (compared to those in the placebo group) had significant decreases in the pre-cancerous condition.

This is why doctors examine your mouth closely on each visit to determine any changes in texture or color that might indicate the presence of oral cancers. This early screening is just one more reason to schedule regular checkup. Ingredients in green tea can also reduce the risk of acquiring dental cavities. One study compared two groups. The one that rinsed each night with an alcohol extract of oolong tea leaves had significantly less plaque formation than the group who did not. Another benefit of green tea is that it stunts the growth of odor-causing bacteria, thus helping you maintain a fresh breath. And just how much green tea should we be drinking? To fully obtain the benefits, we should drink at least four to six cups a day. And if you don’t want to drink it down, simply use it as a mouthwash. Decaffeinated tea is recommended to reduce the side effects associated with caffeine, including anxiety and insomnia. Supplements in the form of tablets are also available.

Eating right promotes your dental well-being by Dr. Dikran Deragopian What we eat is significant to our overall health. General guidelines should include balance and moderation and involve choices from the five major food groups: dairy (milk, yogurt and cheese), meat (poultry and fish), fruits, vegetables and whole grain (breads and cereals). How do we prevent dental problems arising from what we eat? Avoid having

sugar in your mouth for long periods of time. Stay away from sucking candies and chewing gum [unless sugarless] and refrain from drinking soda pop regularly (unless it’s diet soda). Try to cut down on the number of snacks per day. If you must snack, substitute foods that you enjoy but don’t promote tooth decay, such as popcorn, pretzels, fruits, nuts, cheese, pizza and vegetables. Sugary foods with a meal or for

dessert have a less detrimental effect, because increased salivary flow during meals helps wash the food away. Also, meals are usually nearer the time most people brush their teeth. Keeping this in mind, it’s better for children to eat sweets at a time and place that allows them to brush soon afterward. A balanced diet is also important to keep your bones and gums healthy. Foods rich in vitamin C (citrus fruits

and juices, leafy vegetables, and potatoes), B12 (dairy and meat) and folic acid (spinach and broccoli) will help strengthen your gums and supporting soft tissue. Of course, calcium (dairy and dark, leafy vegetables) is necessary for the development and maintenance of strong teeth and bones. If you are lactose intolerant, calcium supplements are readily available. – Courtesy of DentalSenders

‘Lend Me a Tenor’ Antioch stages free The madcap comedy “Lend Me a Tenor” – winner of three Tony awards – takes the stage at Antioch’s El Campanil Theatre on Sunday, July 11 and Wednesday, July 14. The curtain for both performances goes up at 2 p.m. Tito Morelli, the world’s greatest tenor, is about to appear for one night only as Othello in Verdi’s epic tragedy. The star arrives late and through a hilarious series of mishaps is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. What to do? Max can sing, so he’s persuaded to get into Morelli’s costume

and fool the audience into thinking he’s Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli regains consciousness, dons his other costume and – now two Othellos are on stage. Tickets for “Lend Me a Tenor” are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors (62 and over), $10 for youth (17 and under) and may be may be purchased by phone at 925757-9500 or in advance at the ticket office, 604 W. Second St., Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and one hour before showtime (no service fee is charged for tickets purchased at the ticket office).
