Bill calls for abandoned vessel plan by Tony Kukulich

July 12, 2019

Across The Pond Honors

Staff Writer

New legislation authored by Assemblymember Jim Frazier, D-Discovery Bay, and signed into law by Gov. Gavin Newsom, calls for the development of a plan to deal with abandoned and derelict commercial vessels in the Delta. A draft of that plan is now available for review and public comment. Assembly Bill 2441 is a 27page report delivered by the State Lands Commission on July 1, with several objectives, including: developing a riskbased approach to prioritizing vessels; developing the infrasee Abandoned page 30

Barbershop group sings for the arts by Deanna Gordon Staff Writer

A fundraiser featuring professional musicians, many of whom are Byron and Brentwood school district alumni, will take place at Excelsior Middle School’s Kathy Flynn Tickner Theater on Saturday, Aug. 3, at 7 p.m. The show, sponsored by the nonprofit Volunteer Parents of the Arts Club, features alumnus Jake Tickner’s award-winning barbershop comedy group, Newfangled Four, and other professional musicians of all ages who all have roots in East County. An afterglow party – with more performances and food – will immediately follow next door at Campos Family Vineyards until 10 p.m. Newfangled Four’s genre, barbershop comedy, is a modern spin on an old favorite and offers something for everyone.

and International Barbershop Competition in Salt Lake City. “It’s just really one of the fastest growing musical genres for young people today,” said Kathy Tickner, CEO of VPAC and the event’s organizer. “It sounds kind of quirky and weird, but it is something else.” All money raised from the show supports funding for the arts and teacher grants for classroom supplies and art curriculum in the Byron School District. Their fundraising goal is $10,000. Tickner said the fundraiser was borne of a goal to showcase homegrown musical talent in a way that dually benefits school arts programs. As an art and theater teacher for 32 years at Excelsior Middle School, she knows how important the arts are for students, and the funding is just not there. The goal is to give each see Arts page 30

“Oakley Through Time” offers local look East County resident Carol Jensen has released a photographic history of Oakley on behalf of the East Contra Costa Historical Society called “Oakley Through Time.” The settlement and development of Oakley is the story of a thriving California pioneer town. Nestled in the San Joaquin Delta, the area quickly became San Francisco’s easternmost frontier for land speculation, agricultural production and immigration. By 1900, land speculators enticed Portuguese, Spanish and Italian immigrants to settle in Oakley and establish families. Located away from the deep water of San Francisco Bay, Oakley became a railroad town along the Santa Fe line. Here the

stories of immigration and community development played out as they have in small towns throughout the West. Twentieth century wars, food production and changing transportation methods reshaped the tightly knit community throughout the years. “Oakley Through Time” provides a local history of a town as well as insights into immigrant culture and California identity. Presented in vintage photographs from important state and local historical society archives is the evolving and endearing community of Oakley. These images showcase the progression of a small California town in the era of real estate speculation, horse farms and railroad produce

terminals to self-sustaining San Francisco Bay Area suburb. Jensen, a native resident of eastern Contra Costa County and history graduate of the University of California at Santa Barbara, discovers the history of the California San Joaquin Delta, collecting early twentieth-century ephemera and documenting the cultural history of the area from those who lived, farmed, recreated and visited the California Delta. The fruits of her historical search are found at the East Contra Costa Historical Society and Museum in Knightsen. “Oakley Through Time” is set for release July 29.

County gets $1m grant for youth diversion program The Board of State and Community Corrections awarded the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office $1 million to establish a county-wide juvenile diversion pre-filing program. This will be the first county-wide diversion program for Contra Costa County. First planned to be a pilot program in Richmond, the grant will allow the program to go county-wide. The District Attorney’s Office joins the Contra Costa

County Department of Probation, RYSE Youth Center and Impact Justice to initiate a restorative justice program that redirects youth from the juvenile and criminal justice system over a period of four years. “I am proud to have this program for the first time ever in our county’s history,” said District Attorney Diana Becton. “Our office has a crucial role to play in reducing the pipeline into the juvenile justice system while at the same time reduc-

ing disparities in the entire criminal justice system.” The program hopes to lower recidivism rates, increase victim satisfaction, improve youth relationships, and reduce incarceration and probation costs. By providing young people with more resources and opportunities, Contra Costa hopes to divert up to 230 youth from the juvenile justice system. In Alameda County, youth who participated were 44% less likely to recidivate than similarly situated probation youth.

Local activist awarded in London DA to serve by Deanna Gordon Staff Writer

Brandon Gruber, at age 23, has accomplished more in the way of helping others than many could hope to in a lifetime – and he has no indications of slowing down anytime soon. Gruber, who has Down syndrome, has not been without obstacles in his short life. He recalled being bullied when he was young and not being accepted by other kids. “I wanted to be friends with everyone,” he said. “Other people didn’t take a chance on me.” Gruber took his negative experiences and not only learned from them – he wanted to be there for others who also felt alone or invisible. “I was ready to make a change for other people,” he said. He serves on the National Down Syndrome Society Board of Directors and travels throughout the U.S. for board meetings. Next, he will be going to Washington, D.C. Also a talented painter – he has taken lessons since second grade – he sells his creations of landscapes, lighthouses and other places he has traveled to raise money through his 321life+1 Project to support people who are disadvantaged. His mother, Teresa Gruber, estimated he has raised more than $40,000 to date. Recently, Gruber has funded field

schools in the Brentwood and Pajaro school districts. For all his hard work and dedication, Gruber was honored with the Diana Award by the eponymous charity in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, on July 1. “These exceptional young people have demonstrated their ability to inspire and mobilize new generations to serve their communities and create long lasting change on a global scale,” the award’s website states. “This is for the change makers.” “I was pretty in shock,” he said of receiving the award. Brandon and Teresa Gruber attended the Diana Award’s National Youth Mentoring Summit on July 2 in London, the first of its kind. He was excited to meet other young people who are doing good in their communities. Next on his agenda is acting in a short movie, “Salute,” about a young man with Down syndrome who wants to join the military. When asked how he has time to do so much – on top of making time for friends, family and hobbies – he shrugs and smiles. “I find inspiration from other people,” he said. “It’s just me giving to the world.” To learn more about Gruber and his projects, visit https://www.321life.com/.

Brentwood educator reflects on long career by Deanna Gordon Staff Writer

After working for 20 years in the Liberty Union High School District and 39 years overall as an educator, Christina Dalton has retired. Most recently the lead counselor at Heritage High School, where she worked since it opened in 2006, she has also been a math teacher and department chair at Liberty High School and part of the lead team that opened Deer Valley High School in 1996. “Educators should always be growing,” Dalton said. “Anything that makes students successful is where I’m at.” Dalton also said she loved the challenges and intimate relationships that counseling brought her but missed being in the classroom. In 1985, she bought Learning Tree Tutors, then the only tutoring company in Brentwood, after its previous owners were moving and looking to sell. Learning Tree enabled her to tutor students in subjects such as math and SAT preparation when not counseling her students at Heritage, which allowed her to hold on to the teach-

Heritage High School counselor Christina Dalton retired this year after 20 years in the district. ing aspect of her career she loved so much. Her time in the classroom helped give her an eye for what students and

teachers need, which she said enabled her to be a better counselor. “It’s not just about academics,” she said. “Yes, at the beginning of the year, we make sure students are in the right classes, but we [as counselors] also keep communication strong with parents and offer emotional counseling to students. We advocate for them. We’re a safe place, and we try to be mentors.” Looking back on her career, Dalton reflected on stories or students that stood out or affected her the most. “Each child touches you, whether it’s their success or just trying to win them over,” she said. “It’s emotional. There was one student who told me he probably would have dropped out if it weren’t for me and how I guided him. It meant so much, because it’s like a wave . . . You just hope what you do matters.” Since retiring in June, she still remains involved in tutoring students at Learning Tree Tutors. Dalton also looks forward to spending time with her new grandchild, being involved in the local community and staying active by playing tennis and golf. To comment, visit www.thepress.net

The Wave Mission Team – which provides various services for disadvantaged groups throughout Contra Costa and Alameda counties, including veterans, disabled individuals and foster families – has donated vegetables, herbs, plants, flowers, solar lights, umbrellas and greenhouse equipment. The donations enabled the gardening program to purchase tables and benches, and the veggies provided food for the school’s culinary program.

Astronomy Night at the Stone House The John Marsh Historic Trust will hold its first Astronomy Night in the Marsh Creek State Historic Park on Monday, July 29, from 8 to 10:30 p.m. Telescopes and star charts will be provided by the host, Jeff Adkins, director of the Antioch Earth, Space and Astronomy Center for Education (ESPACE) at Deer Valley High School. Adkins will also be an instructor at the soon-to-open Brentwood campus of Los Medanos Community College. In addition to an expected meteor shower that night, Jupiter and Saturn will be up and clearly visible. Sagittarius, Scorpius, the Summer Triangle and many other bright constellations will

be visible as well. Cost is $10 per person or $25 for a family of three or more. Proceeds will go to support the trust, which is working to build an interpretive center in the park, restore the 163-year-old Stone House and open the park to the public. Please wear closed-toe shoes and long pants, as the site is a working cattle ranch with areas of tall grass. Also, there are no bathroom facilities at the site, so plan accordingly. Use of flashlights will be discouraged to preserve stargazers’ night vision. For tickets to the July 29 Astronomy Night at the Stone House, visit Eventbrite at https:// bit.ly/2xuWmWc. The Stone House is located at 21789 Marsh Creek Road in Brentwood.

Black Diamond closed during renovations The Hazel-Atlas Mine and Greathouse Visitor Center will be closed until September 10 while a new exhibit is installed. No mine tours will be available during the construction period. Sidney Flat Visitor Center — located at park headquarters — will be open on summer weekends from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The new Black Diamond Coal Mine exhibit — built into the existing Hazel-Atlas silica sand mine — will be an immersive experience taking visitors

into a recreated 1870s coal mine, part of California’s largest coal mining operation. All of the original coal mines at the preserve have been closed to the public, permanently sealed for public safety. Visitors to the new exhibit will experience the sights and sounds of a working coal mine from nearly 150 years ago, when immigrant miners worked deep in the earth to supply California with the energy needed to power and transform the state’s economy from rural to indus-

trial. The new exhibit is scheduled to open to the public in spring 2020. Black Diamond Mines Naturalist Eddie Willis is looking forward to the new addition to the Hazel-Atlas Mine and Greathouse Visitor Center. “We are excited to showcase this new exhibit, which will allow visitors to connect more directly with the coal mining legacy of these hills in a safe and educational way,” said Willis. To help fund the visitor center exhibit, the Regional Parks Foundation

secured two grants from the Wayne and Gladys Valley Foundation and Marathon Petroleum. The East Bay Regional Park District is the largest regional parks system in the nation, comprising 73 parks, 55 miles of shoreline, and 1,250 miles of trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding and nature learning. The park district receives more than 25 million visits annually throughout Alameda and Contra Costa counties in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Sonic drives in supplies Correspondent

Sonic Drive-In showed teachers all over the country how much they are appreciated during its Limeades for Learning initiative in May, and three local teachers felt the love right here in East County. Angela Sisney of Pioneer Elementary in Brentwood, Amanda Merrill of Vintage Parkway Elementary in Oakley and Kiely Shanks of Almond Grove Elementary in Oakley all received contributions from Sonic Drive-In for learning supplies. The money came in the form of donations to wish lists they posted on DonorsChoose.org, a website where teachers can post lists of items needed for classroom projects. Shanks, a fifth-grade teacher, posted a list called “Successful End of the Year,” asking for play equipment and organizational tools. She had already received some monetary donations toward the project, but Sonic Drive-In finished funding it. “I posted the project in April, and I saw in May that Sonic was donating to my project,” Shanks said. “I think it’s awesome. My kids really enjoyed all the end-of-theyear stuff. It makes the end of the year run smoothly. They like to play kickball with the balls. It’s been a lot of fun.” At Pioneer Elementary, Sisney’s second grade students received funds for writing tools and flexible seating options. Merrill’s students at Vintage Parkway were given reading materials so each student can find

something to interest them in the classroom library. “It is awesome how so many businesses, as well as individual people, participate in the Donors Choose Program,” said Greg Hetrick, superintendent of the Oakley Union Elementary School District. “Their donations make a huge difference for our staff and students alike.” Christi Woodworth, vice president of public relations for Sonic Corp., spoke of the company’s commitment to supporting teachers through their customers. “Sonic fans who love teachers responded incredibly during Teacher Appreciation Month, and we were delighted to support 3,937 teachers and their students across the country,” Woodworth said. “Each year, teachers spend hundreds of their own dollars to support their students, and with Limeades for Learning, Sonic and our fans made that burden a bit lighter.” Sonic has been running its Limeades for Learning campaign since 2009 and has donated $13.1 million to over 33,000 classrooms across the country. By providing educational materials and teaching resources, Sonic hopes to inspire creativity and learning to impact students through its partnership with DonorsChoose.org.

PEST REPORT FINDINGS A pest inspection report will show three main categories of findings. They are called “Section 1,” “Section 2” and then “Further Inspection” items. Section 1 items are the most serious findings. These are where the inspector found actual infestation of some wood-destroying organism like termites or dry-rot. We don’t usually run across a lot of termites around here, but dry-rot is pretty common. I’d say 90-95% of time when I see a Section 1 item on a report, it’s dry-rot. The treatment for termites is usually some kind of chemical treatment, all the way up to tenting the whole house to fumigate it. Dry-rot is usually dealt with by digging out or cutting out the damaged areas and replacing with fresh materials. Section 2 items are more of a maintenance concern. These items will likely lead to termites or dry-rot if left unchecked. For example, let’s say a homeowner just installed a beautiful new wood deck in their back yard. The wood is fresh and new with no termites and no dry-rot,

but they sunk the posts into the ground and it’s not pressure-treated lumber. This will likely be called out as a Section 2 item because in time, dry-rot or termite infestation will likely happen. Another example would be missing caulking around plumbing fixtures, sinks, shower enclosures, etc. Again, there may not be damage there now, but it will probably happen eventually. Further Inspection items are the wild-card items. These are the areas where the inspector couldn’t make a determination if there is a problem or not, and would need to come back to be sure. A common one is where the garage is so full of stored items that the inspector can’t see the walls. Another common one is where the flooring around a toilet is stained, or maybe even soft. The toilet and floor would have to be lifted up to look underneath it. If you have questions about real estate, call me at (925) 240-MOVE (6683). Voted “Best of Brentwood” multiple times.

PG&E encourages customers to update contact information Pacific Gas and Electric Company is sending postcards to more than 240,000 customers, encouraging them to update their mobile number, email and other key information, so the company can contact them in advance should it become necessary to temporarily turn off power for safety this fire season. These customers – who live throughout PG&E’s service area – have incomplete or no contact information on file. It’s important that all customer information is up to date so PG&E can share important wildfire safety alerts. In addition to notifying customers directly, PG&E will also provide outage updates and information through channels such as social media, local news, radio and the pge.com website. “With the 2019 wildfire season now upon us, we all need to be better prepared to stay emergency ready, and to keep our families and friends safe,” said Laurie Giammona, PG&E’s senior vice president and chief customer officer. “We are asking our customers to be sure we have their latest contact information so we can do our best to reach them in advance of a potential public safety power shutoff event.” The Public Safety Power Shutoff program is one of many additional precautionary safety measures in response to the 2017 and

2018 wildfires that the company is putting in place as part of its Community Wildfire Safety Program, intended to reduce wildfire threats and strengthen communities for the future. Extreme weather threats can change quickly. PG&E’s goal — dependent on weather and other factors — is to send customer alerts through automated calls, texts and emails at 48 hours before, again at 24 hours before, and then again just prior to shutting off power. Besides updating contact information to prepare for Public Safety Power Shutoffs, PG&E encourages customers to do the following: Have an emergency plan for wildfires and discuss it with friends, family and neighbors; update or create a “go-bag,” or 72-hour kit, that can be used if you need to evacuate; and clear defensible space around your home or business. PG&E thanks the over 390,000 customers who have taken action to ensure they will receive its wildfire safety alerts since June 1, 2018. For customers who have not yet confirmed or updated their contact information, PG&E strongly encourages everyone to do so by visiting pge.com/mywildfirealerts, or by calling the PG&E contact center at 866-743-6589.

Take the Brentwood employment survey The City of Brentwood is working to facilitate more employment opportunities in Brentwood. City staff want to ensure the jobs that are grown and drawn here match the skills and aspirations of residents. “The best pitch we have when talking to a major employer is that the talented people they need to make their business successful are already here in Brentwood suffering long commutes,” said Terrence Grindall, Brentwood’s assistant city manager. “Yet we

don’t have evidence to back up that assertion. This survey is intended to help city staff, and more importantly, businesses, understand Brentwood workforce dynamics.” This survey can be accessed through the city’s website or directly at www. opentownhall.com/7603. The survey is confidential, and all employed Brentwood residents are encouraged to fill out the 10-question survey. “We need good data to attract the right jobs to Brentwood,” Grindall said.

Public safety voter initiative meeting 7/20 The East County Voters for Equal Protection (ECVEP) is hosting an informational meeting to talk about the Emergency Response for All Initiative on Saturday, July 20, at 9:30 a.m. in the Raley’s Event Center, 2400 Sand Creek Road, Brentwood. The public is invited. The Emergency Response for All Initiative is part of a voter initiative strategy to increase public safety services funding

in East Contra Costa County with no new taxes. Bryan Scott of ECVEP is organizing the meeting. Saturday’s meeting will discuss the practical steps necessary to improve public safety services funding in East Contra Costa County using the initiative process.  Contact Bryan Scott at 925-4184428 or  scott.bryan@comcast.net  for more information.

by Joan Grimes, Esq. and Jennifer Wallis, Esq. Are you thinking about appointing a Co-Trustee to help you manage your Revocable Living Trust? Recently, we have met with several clients who have had questions about appointing their child or another individual to serve as a Co-Trustee. When should you consider appointing your child as Co-Trustee? While you and your spouse are able to handle your personal and financial affairs, we generally do not recommend appointing a Co-Trustee. However, if your spouse passes or if you would like additional assistance, then you might want to consider appointing your child to serve as Co-Trustee. A Co-Trustee can help manage and control all of your Trust assets. For example, when my mother turned 85 years old, she informed me that she wanted help paying her bills and managing her money. I was more than happy to help. To facilitate this change, my mother appointed me as Co-Trustee and I was able to manage her Trust assets. Once appointed, my mother and I went to her financial institutions so I could be added as a Co-Trustee to all of her Trust bank and brokerage accounts. Her financial institutions also issued new checks to reflect that I had been appointed as a CoTrustee. Once added to the accounts, I was able to easily manage and monitor her Trust assets. I could also write checks to help her pay her bills. If I add my child as Co-Trustee, what will their responsibilities be? This answer will vary depending on your personal needs. The benefit of adding a child as CoTrustee is your child’s role can evolve to meet your needs as you age. In the beginning, your Co-Trustee can help monitor your accounts. However, if you need additional assistance in the future, your Co-Trustee

can take a more active role and begin paying your bills and managing all of your Trust assets. Will appointing a Co-Trustee help protect against elder abuse? Yes! Appointing a Co-Trustee can help protect against financial elder abuse. Sadly, we have met with seniors who have lost substantial assets as a result of elder abuse and fraudulent transactions. By allowing your Co-Trustee to monitor your accounts, you can help protect yourself against potential elder abuse and fraud. If I appoint a Co-Trustee will they be able to amend or revoke my Revocable Living Trust? Generally, a Co-Trustee who did not establish or create the Revocable Living Trust does not have the authority to amend or revoke the Revocable Living Trust. However, you can decide how much power and authority you wish to give your Co-Trustee. It is very important to carefully read your Revocable Living Trust to understand your Co-Trustee’s power and authority to manage Trust assets. While adding your child as Co-Trustee can be very beneficial, it is important for both you and your Co-Trustee to first understand the role of a Co-Trustee.

They unplugged it and put it outside. Maury, by the way, was in Chicago at a trade show. On Monday morning, Maury left for San Francisco to attend another big trade show. There’s a lot of schmoozing and dinners and early breakfast meetings that go on, so it just makes sense for him to stay in the city. By Monday night, the bizarre events began occurring.

his friends came rushing in. They had been down at the park playing “Spikeball” — a new, all-the-rage game involving a ball and a trampoline. “What’s wrong?” I asked, sensing the group’s urgency. “My friend cut his hand pretty bad hopping the fence.” Ryan said. “Can you look at it?” The poor boy came over to me clutching his hand and I ushered him into the bathroom. Ryan’s girlfriend said she thought he might need stitches. I braced myself for the reveal. He opened his hand over the bathroom sink. Yikes! It was a pretty deep gash between his thumb and index finger. Blood was dripping into the sink. I grabbed some Neosporin and a large Band-Aid. He was obviously shocked and in a lot of pain. I knew that, at the very least, he needed a tetanus shot. After all, he cut his hand on a dirty, rusty fence — the classic tetanus scenario! We needed a professional opinion and my neighbor up the street is a nurse. I gave her a call and she was happy to come over and take a look at it. Our diagnosis was confirmed. He definitely needed stitches and a tetanus shot (I owe her cookies). Ryan and his friends drove him home where his dad was waiting to take him to the ER, where he later received 6 stitches! Ryan and his friends returned and a few more friends showed up. The focus now shifted to where to go eat. They agreed on a restaurant in Concord. Meanwhile, Haley was waiting for a girlfriend to arrive for an overnighter ... of which, naturally, I had no knowledge. That’s how teens operate. They make all kinds of plans but rarely clue you in on it until it’s already happening. Ryan’s girlfriend suggested Haley and her friend join them for dinner. It was already 9:30 p.m. I wasn’t sure how comfortable I was with the idea, but Haley looked so excited to be invited by the older kids. A car pulled up in front of the house. I opened the front door. Haley’s friend hopped out of the car, and that’s when I spotted a large skunk scurrying around my front lawn! “Hurry!” I motioned to her frantically. I waved at her mom and pointed at Pepé Le Pew, who was looking right at us. She drove off and we ran into the house. I warned everyone about the skunk. Thankfully, they were all able to load up in our big Tahoe without incident.

The kids drove away and — as is my normal ritual now — I prayed. I do way more praying now that the kids are older than I ever did when they were young. I also drink a lot more beer, which, incidentally, is what I did when I went back in the house. No need to make dinner anymore, so I poured myself a bowl of pistachios. And then I heard my cats hissing outside on the patio. My dog, Chance, raced over to the screen door. I rushed over and flipped on the big flood light. A large raccoon was sitting on my glass patio table, helping himself to a bowl of cat food! Also, the skunk from my front yard was now hopping around my backyard before nestling into some bushes. My dog was going insane! He wanted out, but I slammed the glass door. What the heck was going on?! And if you thought it stopped there, it didn’t stop there. A flash of white up on the fence caught my eye. A possum was scurrying along the top of it before disappearing. I thought there might be an impending earthquake with all the animal activity. One thing I knew for sure was that I had to remove the bowl of cat food from the patio table, ideally without getting skunked, or mauled by the raccoon. I clapped my hands loudly. The raccoon awkwardly fell off the table and lumbered off. I grabbed the bowl and darted back inside. Mission accomplished! At midnight, the kids returned. Thank you, God! We decided to watch an episode of our favorite show, “Stranger Things.” How appropriate. We watched two episodes, finishing around 2 a.m. Haley and her friend headed upstairs, after which I heard Haley scream, “Mom! There’s a cockroach on my bed!” I couldn’t believe my ears. We have never, EVER had a cockroach in the house. And just what you want to see when you have an overnight guest, right? I entered Haley’s room and, yep, there it was. Gross! A big cockroach was sitting there on her white comforter, waving its feelers around. “Don’t squash it on my bed!” she yelled. I grabbed a glass vase and a Marvin Gaye album cover. I trapped the roach and carefully slid Marvin Gaye beneath it. I made my way downstairs, out of the house and discarded the insect into the gutter. The good news? By 3 a.m. this strange night was finally over. The bad news? Maury won’t be home for two more nights. We may be in for even Stranger Things …

Audrey L. Wheeler

Audrey was born in 1951 in Pittsburgh, PA to Clayton Wilson, a civil engineer at U.S. Steel, and Mary Louise Tancraitor, a homemaker. She lived the quintessential childhood of a baby boomer in Gibsonia, PA, spending time with her loving family, which included three siblings and a dog. After graduating from Richland High School, she met and married the love of her life, Michael Wheeler, at the age of nineteen. A devoted mother, Audrey spent her younger years raising two wonderful sons, Michael and Brian, in the Pittsburgh area. In later years, she also lived in San Ramon, CA, West End, NC, and Brentwood. When her children were older, Audrey pursued a short stint as a travel agent, allowing her to delve more deeply into one of her greatest passions: traveling. She was a cultural explorer who enjoyed traveling around the world to visit scenic places, meet interesting people and collect fun local artifacts. Not only did Audrey enjoy learning about the traditions in various countries, but she also loved to observe and learn about indigenous wildlife such as humpback whales and chinstrap penguins. One of her favorite pastimes was photography, and she has endowed her family with many meaningful memories of happy times together from the shores of Lahaina,

Family Matters

by Silky Sahnan, esq. Living Together After Divorce Many people who are getting a divorce can find it very difficult to move out into a new home, or even stay in the same home with their soon to be ex. If you decide to live together during your divorce process, here are some tips to keep in mind. Determine Financial Responsibilities The very first order of business when you decide to live together during and after divorce is to separate your finances. Determining a budget for both parties to commit to that includes all living expenses will help free you of financial stress. If you’ve historically paid all household expenses, speak to an attorney about whether or not it is a good idea to continue doing so. Determine a Parenting Plan If you’re living together after a separation or divorce, you will need

to devise a parenting plan. The best way to do so is to arrange days when each parent will be responsible for the child(ren). Establish Personal Boundaries Dividing rooms and space provides spaces in your home that are just for you. Household duties such as cleaning, preparing meals, doing laundry, dishes and yard work can all be split up so that responsibilities are accounted for. Contact The Law Offices of Silky Sahnan If you are considering divorce, it is important that you contact a skilled family law attorney. At The Law Offices of Silky Sahnan, let us help you with our holistic approach. Call us at 888-228-1098 for a phone consultation. Visit us at legalservicesca.com. – Advertisement

County clerk-recorder’s office returns to summertime hours Summer has arrived in Contra Costa County, which means warmer temperatures and the return of the Clerk-Recorder Extended Summer Hours program. Every Thursday from July 11 through August 29, the Clerk-Recorder office, located at 555 Escobar St. in Martinez, will be open from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. – a three-hour extension beyond usual closing time. Summer is an important time for parents to obtain birth certificates for school and for those seeking documents for traveling. It is also a popular season for weddings. This is the fifth year the clerk-recorder has offered this special program, serving nearly 1,000 customers after hours since 2015. “We’re looking forward to providing this unique program again,” said Contra Costa Clerk-Recorder Joe Canciamilla.

“Residents, especially those who work during the day, have enjoyed the opportunity to get the services they need at a time that’s more convenient for them. It’s nice to be able to offer our services for an extended time, especially for busy parents as they get ready for the upcoming school year.” Services provided during the extended hours include the issuance of marriage licenses, copies of vital records such as birth and death certificates, copies of recorded documents, fictitious business names and other professional filings.

Ready for firewor ks at Oakley’s Freedom Basin Park

Thousands of residents and visitors flowed into Oakley’s Freedom Basin Park Saturday night, July 6, to enjoy food, rides, games, vendors and fireworks for the city’s 20th Cityhood Celebration. City councilmember Kevin Romick observed how the annual party hailing the city’s 1999 incorporation has been growing year by year. “The police estimated as many as 10,000 last year,” Romick said, “and there will be probably more this year.” Police Chief Eric Christensen commented: “This is always a great family event for the members of our community. This event is larger than just the crowd in the basin. It involves neighbors gathering in parks, courts and block parties throughout the nearby neighborhoods.  Combine great people with great neighborhoods and a great fireworks show — it’s why people love the community.” “It’s great to see all these people turning out,” said Valerie Ricks of Glass Dome Graphics in Discovery Bay, one of the vendors at the event. Amory Donaldson of Martinez said she came for the great food. Jorge Gonzalez and Christine Belleci manned a booth for the Diablo Water District, handing out free water and information on the agency’s services. “The district is expanding and serving more and more people as Oakley grows,” Gonzalez said. Three women from La Clinica answered questions about their organization’s health services, including Carmen Cabrera-Schenhart, Patricia Dalbey and Alondra Martinez. Another booth from the new Oakley Senior Center was manned by Tim Lear, president, Estrella Saitta and Henry Saitta — all fielding questions about their facility and services. Local native Giovanni Chamberlain, one of the first graduates of Freedom High School, enjoyed the night with his parents, Carlos and Ofelia Chamberlain. “It’s great to see all the diversity here over the years; the growth in the Latino community,” said Giovanni, who’s been coming to the event every year.

New regional park conveyance July 13 After more than 20 years of community support and involvement, the East Bay Regional Park District has accepted 2,216 acres of former Concord Naval Weapons Station land from the U.S. Navy for a future regional park. An additional 327 acres are set to transfer to the district at a later date. “Conveyance of the property to the park district is the culmination of a decades-long community effort,” said Beverly Lane, who has represented Concord on the East Bay Regional Park District board since 1994. “This is a proud moment for the park district and shows the great power of persistence and working together with the community.” On July 2, 2019, the East Bay Regional Park District Board of Directors unanimously approved accepting the land from the U.S. Navy. The board action authorizes the district to accept conveyance of the property and fee title ownership. Transfer of ownership is expected to take six months. “This is a great day for the park

district and East Bay residents,” said East Bay Regional Park District General Manager Robert Doyle. “The public will have access to great future park amenities, including a visitor center, staging areas, access points, and miles of recreational trails for hiking, biking and nature viewing.” Doyle added that park development is expected to take several years and will require significant financial resources. He said there is currently no timetable for the development, but when completed, the new park will be larger than Tilden Park. A public celebration is scheduled for Saturday, July 13, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the former Concord Naval Weapons Station. The event will also commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Port Chicago Explosion. The celebration will include a panel discussion hosted by the Friends of Port Chicago National Memorial and National Park Service, a conveyance ceremony, presentations, exhibit booths, lunch, and

Looking forward to a little Righteous Brothers Grandpa and I enjoy our trips to Las Vegas, mainly to see dear friends who have become family over the past 40 years. Our visits do not focus around gambling or other Las Vegas norms, but exploring and spending time with these loved ones. Sometimes we Senior will catch a show, but orner it’s usually a funny comedian who we enjoy or a unique magician like Piff the Magic Dragon, but the other day I saw that The Righteous Brothers were performing there at the Marla same time we would Luckhardt be in town. Having a personal history with the two original members, my husband was over the moon when I surprised him with the tickets to see their show. Grandpa had known them and actually played guitar in a band called Joe Piazza and the Continentals, which was a backup band for them. He got a job with Bob Mitchell and Tom Donahue at KYA radio after being seen as a dancer on “Dick Stewart’s Dance Party,” and one day was asked to pick up Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield from Villa Roma at Fisherman’s Wharf. He drove his black 1960 Ford convertible and immediately made friends with the pair. The show was at the Vallejo fairgrounds, and he was so thrilled to be a part of their performance. This marvelous bit of his past would have a special impact on him and his enjoyment of their music for years to come. As I spent my youth enjoying groups at the Fillmore East, he was grooving to the San Francisco performances at the Fillmore West. Originally, The Righteous Brothers were the duo of Bill Medley and Bobby

C

Hatfield. They began performing together in 1962 as part of a five-member group called The Paramours, but changed the name to The Righteous Brothers when the two broke away from the others. The pair had a breakup in February 1968 which would last for more than six years, when Medley left to pursue a solo career. He made a few recordings on several labels, while Hatfield teamed up with singer Jimmy Walker (from The Knickerbockers) using The Righteous Brothers name. Medley first recorded “I Can’t Make It Alone,” written by the amazing Carole King, but the song was not very successful. “Brown Eyed Woman,” written by Mann and Weil, was received a little better, but neither he nor Hatfield achieved the same ratings on the hit charts as before. Hatfield and Jimmy Walker recorded an album, “Re-Birth,” as “The Righteous Brothers” before disbanding in 1971. Jimmy Walker said he had wanted to continue, but Hatfield decided to break up that act. Medley at the time was performing three shows a night in Las Vegas, but — finding it too much of a strain on his voice singing solo — he contacted Hatfield to reunite the original The Righteous Brothers. Hatfield, at this point, was broke and living alone in a small apartment, so in 1974, Medley and Hatfield announced a reunion during an appearance on “The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour.” Their song “Rock and Roll Heaven,” about rock singers who had died, became a hit, peaking at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. They were back ... or were they? Between 1976 and 1981, Hatfield and Medley stopped performing as a duo after the death of Medley’s first wife, as he wanted time off to look after his son. They reunited again for an anniversary special on American Bandstand in 1981 to perform an updated version of “Rock

“ Grandpa had known them and actually played guitar in a band called Joe Piazza and the Continentals, which was a backup band for them.

and Roll Heaven,” and resumed touring intermittently. In late 1987, Medley’s duet with Jennifer Warnes, “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life,” appeared on the soundtrack for Dirty Dancing, and the pair’s 1965 version of “Unchained Melody” — my personal favorite — was featured in the 1990 movie “Ghost,” with Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg. Nobody has sung that song like they did, though many have tried.

Bobby Hatfield passed away on November 5, 2003. Sadly, the autopsy report attributed his death to heart failure brought on by a cocaine overdose, and his beautiful voice was silenced. In January 2016, Medley announced he intended to revive The Righteous Brothers for the first time since 2003, which was when the original duo was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He contacted singer Bucky Heard and discussed a collaboration, which ended in a coin toss. Medley won, resulting in Heard accepting Medley’s proposal. That is the show we’ll see in October and I, for one, am not only stoked but looking forward to watching Grandpa’s face as he revisits his musical past with an old friend.

Not one solution will fix the fire service problem In the June 21 Press article “East Contra Costa Fire Protection District examines alternative funding options,” Fire Chief Brian Helmick did a great job of explaining and updating us on ditorial what he thinks we need to do to fix our fire-protection problem. Bryan Scott of East County Voters (ECV) suggested an alternative idea. I firmly believe they both have merit and that we should not be looking at just one solution to fix this major problem that’s been going on since 1978! We all need to work together as one entity for the common good, with one goal: to increase the safety of our residents, whether it be a fire, a heart attack, a choking baby or a car accident.  I could support the idea of a new tax that Chief Helmick is proposing, but can all the residents afford $300 per year? Maybe a $100 to $125 per year is something everyone could get behind. ECV’s idea of doing the initiative is not to take away anything that the cities are currently getting, they are only suggesting that a percentage of the increase of the future tax dollars be allocated to public safety, which is one of the city’s line items anyway.

As far as having two items on the same ballot and Chief Helmick’s concern about confusing the voters because the message is different, I suggest both groups work together to explain the full concept of their ideas in a way that will benefit all concerned. With the correct public meetings and the right informational messages that say, “Vote yes on this item” and “Vote yes on this one too” they both can win! So, if we all work together to ask for that $100 - $125 per year from the residents and we ask the cities to give up some of their future property tax increases, (that we know they will get due to all the new homes being built and as the value of our homes increase.) then with both of these ideas working together, everybody wins and nobody loses. I encourage and request that we sit down together and hammer out a solution incorporating these two ideas and possibly come up with a third as well. Because I believe there isn’t just one fix to the health, safety and fire protection problem we currently have. Join the conversation: let me know your thoughts and ideas to help fix the problem we all face. Many hands make light work. Greg Robinson Publisher

Freedom varsity basketball coach resigns by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer

Oakley’s Freedom High School varsity boys basketball coach, Drew Torres, has loved coaching hundreds of players in his career. But one budding young athlete has changed Torres’ path forward. Torres, 41, has resigned from his Freedom coaching position after 12 years to spend more time with his family, including his 8-year-old son, who’s hooked on sports and adores having a talented coach and dad at his side. “It was honestly the hardest decision of my professional career,” said Torres, who believes he’ll coach again someday. “For 17 years, I have been doing this and my life is always the same. It’s about the team, trying to win league, North Coast, state, all that stuff. And now to give that up, it’s like, OK, I am going to miss that. Telling the team was tough. I just put family first. That is what it came down to.” Torres built the Falcons into a perennial contender and three-time league champion, taking a team that previously had never reached the playoffs and guiding them to the postseason for 11 of his 12 years coaching them. Under his leadership, the team made a trip to the North

Coast Section title game, four appearances in the NorCal playoffs and a trip to the Northern California championship game. “Coach Torres brought professionalism and character to our boys basketball program,” said former Freedom Athletic Director Steve Amaro, now an assistant principal at the school. “For many years, our boys teams have been seen as one of the premier programs in NCS, Northern California and even the state.  He has influenced the lives of countless students and brought pride to the Freedom community through the program’s continued development.   What I will most miss about seeing Coach Torres on the sideline is that he was always willing to work with everyone, be open minded to new methods to make our athletes better and always focused on our students first.” The time commitment of coaching, however, has drawbacks, Torres said. He misses out on family functions: His 11-year-old daughter has never fulfilled her desire to see snow, and his son — who aspires to play basketball, baseball and soccer — has flourished as a flag football player with Torres’ consistent, personal coaching, a role that can’t always be fulfilled by a coach often away from home. “Really, it was on Father’s Day when

Longtime Freedom head varsity basketball coach Drew Torres has stepped down after 12 years to spend more time with his family. I made my decision,” said Torres, who sought the advice of multiple veteran coaches. “I was at a tournament in San Ramon from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and I started questioning myself about what I am doing. I’m missing out on all this family stuff. I was a little depressed about it. I don’t want to have regrets about it later

in life.” As Torres heads into life away from the high school game, he can think back to the successes he leaves behind. He was named a four-time team MVP for Liberty as a player in the early- to mid-1990s, before garnering the Coach’s Award, Outstanding Basketball Player and Most Inspirational awards as a member of the Los Medanos and Chico State basketball squads. His first coaching role was assistant for the varsity team at Chico’s Pleasant Valley High School — part of his Chico State coaching and administration master’s program. Thrust into a junior varsity head coaching position for a short time one day, he led a hastily assembled squad full of previously cut players to second see Basketball page 23

Local teams participate in Cooperstown tournament by Michael Dixon Correspondent

Every summer, the town of Cooperstown hosts a different tournament each week for 12 weeks, featuring traveling baseball teams from around the country. During the final week of June, three local, traveling baseball teams — the Delta Islanders, Delta Dawgs, and L4 Razors — participated in a tournament in the village of Cooperstown, New York. The Delta Dawgs and L4 Razors both went 2-5 for the week. The Islanders went 5-2-1 on their way to finishing 18th out of the 62 participating teams that participated. “It took a lot of fundraising and hard work to get us there,” Islanders manager Vin Rover said. “The trip was good. It was eight games in five days, so we got to play a lot of baseball. We got to go to the Baseball Hall of Fame.” Rover added that having the other two local teams in Cooperstown created a great sense of camaraderie. He also noted that they’d go to each other’s games to cheer on the fellow local teams. In addition to their fellow locals, the players also got to meet players from different states, as well as some from other countries. One way that socialization is encouraged is to have each team bring a pin specific to their team. When there, the

The local Delta Islanders, Delta Dawgs, and L4 Razors squads recently traveled to Cooperstown, New York to participate in a tournament. players swap pins with one another and even the umpires, who also come in from different places. “Each one of our kids had about 45 pins,” Rover said. “It’s a real good social icebreaker socialization thing that they do. That’s really fun and was a really neat thing for the kids to do.”

One of the unique features of the tournament —– at least for the local teams —– was that the fields have short fences. Rover noted that some of the kids are big enough that they can clear the fences pretty easily and that “a routine fly ball can turn into a home run.” Given that the trip is across the coun-

try, it’s obviously not an easy one for everyone to make. However, that made the fact that every player did attend even more special for the teams and their families alike. “It was really great to see the families come together for a little vacation,” Rover said. “I want to give a big thank you to the parents for making it all possible.”

She enjoys swimming and water polo year-round and has shown her mettle as a tough competitor and team player. She said she enjoys her time in the water, and it doesn’t even feel like work. “Swimming is relaxing,” she said with a smile. “It takes your mind off things. I like racing because I’m competitive, and I like water polo for the team dynamic and for the sport itself.” Emma said she prefers water polo for the relationships and communication skills she’s gained. In addition to playing for her school, she plays water polo for Lamorinda Water Polo. She also swims laps during the swim off-season and works out in the mornings before school. Her favorite subject is U.S. History. She volunteers her

place in a tournament, after only two weeks of practice. The following week, that same Torres-led team went 2-0, this time in a varsity tournament, filling in for a squad that lost its opening game and went home. “I was like, ‘OK, I feel like I’m pretty good at this,’” said Torres, a former rugby player who admits that, initially, he didn’t aspire to teach physical education or to coach, but pursued those areas of study for their academic ease so he could continue rugby play. Torres converted his one-year college-coaching experience into a freshman basketball head-coaching gig at Antioch High for a year. After that, he was promoted to the varsity position, where he guided the squad to the North Coast Section playoffs from 2005-2007, and then joined Freedom for the 2008-2009 season. He’s been great for our program,” said Freedom Principal Kelly Manke, noting he earned the respect of parents and the school community while impacting many kids over the years. Torres’ consistent success may derive from his unique practices. The latter, he says, is the aspect of coaching he’ll miss the most, and is a constant conversation piece among former players reminiscing about his program. During those sessions, Torres said the court would be a sanctuary for improvement, competitiveness and fun, as the team was divided into two teams and each drill was scored.

But there were other components to Torres’ triumphs. He emphasized physical toughness, nutrition and weight work, and he was aided by a steady group of assistants. Throw in precise organization, countless hours of film study and scouting by coaches, and the result was historic seasons and magical postseason runs. One of these successes — the Falcons’ 2013-14 dash to the North Coast Section title game, followed by the Northern California championship — is one of Torres’ all-time favorite coaching memories. The league-champion squad (26-7 and 9-1 in league play that year), led by Elliot Smith, Rodney Pope, Joe Mixon, Nathan Mallett, John Ketchel and Kendall Mcintosh, fell to Monte Vista in both title contests — the NorCal game going to overtime — but advanced further than any Liberty Union High School District basketball team in history. “We didn’t have one bad practice,” Torres said. “It was just fun to go, every single day. We had multiple leaders, many guys who were coaches on the court. It was so fun. I always felt good being around them.” Another sparkling squad, Antioch’s 2006-07 team, featured four eventual Division 1 college players (Eddie Miller, Calvin Douglas, Murkice Carter and Tim Williams), and other seniors Torres had worked with his first year at the school as a freshman coach. The group finished 22-6 and 14-2 in league play (just one game behind De La Salle for first place), before advancing to

WWW.THEPRESS.NET

the North Coast Section playoffs and falling to Monte Vista in the second round. “I remember walking into the locker room and guys were just bawling, because we didn’t want the season to end,” Torres said. As Torres looks back on those cherished memories, he’s quick to point out they likely won’t be his last on a high school court as a head coach. First, however, he has to make some memories at home. “I do feel in my heart I will be back,” he said. “I am not done with high school basketball. I’m 41 years old, I’m healthy, I have tons of energy … I’m sure I’ll get another opportunity when the time is right.”

DUI checkpoint Friday Brentwood Police Department’s (BPD) traffic unit will conduct a DUI and driver’s license checkpoint Friday, July 12, between 7 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. on Sand Creek Road at Shady Willow Lane. California has seen an increase in drug-impaired driving crashes in recent years. The BPD supports the new effort from the Office of Traffic Safety, which aims to educate drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Individuals taking prescription drugs, particularly those with driving or operating machinery warnings on the label, might be impaired enough to get a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI. The deterrent effect of high visibility enforcement using both DUI checkpoints and DUI saturation patrols has proven to lower the number of people killed and injured in alcohol or drug-impaired crashes. Research shows crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced up to 20% when well-publicized, proactive DUI operations are routinely conducted. DUI checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and DUI arrest frequency, affording the greatest opportunity for achieving drunken and drugged driving deterrence. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for officers and the public. In California, alcohol-involved collisions led to 1,155 deaths and nearly 24,000

serious injuries in 2014 because someone failed to designate a sober driver. Over the past three years, BPD officers have investigated 52 DUI collisions which have resulted in 16 injuries. Officers will look for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment and check drivers for proper licensing. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving, which now accounts for a growing number of impaired driving crashes. Studies of California drivers have shown 30% of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems. A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14%) than did for alcohol (7.3%). Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4%, slightly more than alcohol. Everyone should be mindful that if taking medication – whether prescription or over-the-counter – drinking even small amounts of alcohol can greatly intensify the impairment effects. Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspensions and other expenses that can exceed $10,000. Funding for this checkpoint is provided to the BPD by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to “Report Drunk Drivers – Call 9-1-1.”

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this Notice of Sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 916-939-0772 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site http://www.qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the trustee: CA-18846649-NJ. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned

If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney.

THIS NOTICE IS SENT FOR THE PURPOSE OF COLLECTING A DEBT. THIS FIRM IS ATTEMPTING TO COLLECT A DEBT ON BEHALF OF THE HOLDER AND OWNER OF THE NOTE. ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED BY OR PROVIDED TO THIS FIRM OR THE CREDITOR WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

structure to remove vessels; and developing a cost basis for budgeting and providing recommendations to prevent or minimize the future abandonment of commercial vessels. The plan does not provide a plan for funding the effort. The bill initially had a funding component, but it was removed before the final vote. “I am grateful the State Lands Commission is fulfilling the requirement of AB 2441 on schedule,” Frazier said. “These abandoned, derelict commercial vessels pose a serious threat to the Delta’s ecosystem and navigation of its waterways. I urge interested parties to read and comment on the draft plan. I look forward to the final plan so that we can move forward with clearing the Delta of these hazards.” The report identifies 55 abandoned commercial vessels in the five counties that make up the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Region. A 2017 survey of the Delta identified 14 abandoned or derelict commercial vessels in Contra Costa County. Some of the locations included the San Joaquin River, Broad Slough, Old River and San Pablo Bay. The report estimates the average cost of removing a commercial vessel at $200,000, though costs can vary widely depending on the vessel’s size, location and condition. “There are a lot of cost factors to consider,” said Steve Hampton, assistant deputy administrator with the Office of Spill Response and Prevention in a 2018 interview. “Generally a vessel that’s under 40 feet can be put on a trailer and taken to the landfill. Once the vessel sinks, or once the vessel is over 40 feet, it needs to be disassembled to get it out. You start adding zeros (to the cost), lots of zeros.” There are programs that fund the removal of recreational vessels, but no such program exists for commercial vessels. The Division of Boating and Waterways (DBW) offers recreational boaters several options once a boat has reached the end of its useful life. The Vessel Turn-In Program allows an owner to surrender a recreational boat to DBW at no cost, while the Abandoned Watercraft Abatement Fund (AWAF) provides grants to agencies like the Office of the Sheriff who are tasked with

removing abandoned boats. In 2016, Frazier worked with the California Sheriffs’ Association to introduce AB 2092. It attempted to make AWAF money available for the removal of commercial vessels. But stiff resistance led by the Recreational Boaters of California – who argued the cost of removing only a few commercial vessels could wipe out the fund – led to the bill stalling, and it never moved forward. If there is a single story that serves as the poster child for the problem of abandoned and derelict commercial vessels in the Delta, it’s that of the Spirit of Sacramento – an 87-foot paddle wheel boat that had seen better days when it last went up for auction in 2016. “It ended up in a marina in the Bay Area,” said Gary Madison of the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff marine patrol unit. “The former owner stopped paying the dock fees, and it was auctioned off to some guys that had no idea what they were doing. Somehow they ended up in Franks Tract, and we gave them citations for many violations. They started it up, and it proceeded to sink and leave a huge diesel slick.” When the Spirit of Sacramento capsized in Franks Tract near Bethel Island in September 2016, it was estimated to be carrying 600 gallons of diesel fuel that threatened to leak into prime Delta habitat. The vessel that had been purchased at auction for $1,000 created an environmental hazard and cost the U.S. Coast Guard approximately $1.6 million and Contra Costa County $100,000 to remove. Until a funded plan to deal with abandoned commercial vessels can be implemented, the problems they bring will continue to multiply. “If the boats are not maintained, they will sink,” said Doug Powell, retired member of the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff marine patrol unit. “It’s just a matter of time.” To review the SLC plan for abandoned commercial vessels in the Delta, visit: http://bit.ly/thepress_ abandoned_vessels.
