Council discusses potential Walmart suit by Dave Roberts Staff Writer The City Council discussed in closed session Tuesday night the possibility that Walmart will file a lawsuit against the city in response to the council’s denial of its request to expand its store on Lone Tree Way to include a grocery department. The council’s July 27 vote against the expansion was preliminary because documents had not been prepared to justify the denial – city staff had recommended approval after the Planning Commission unanimously approved it. In order to allow City Attorney Lynn Tracy Nerland time to draw up the justifications for its denial, the council scheduled the final vote for a special meeting next Tuesday, Aug. 17. Tuesday night’s closed-door discussion concerned “significant exposure to litigation based on the council’s Walmart action,” said Nerland at the beginning of the council’s open session. “Direction was given but there was no reportable action.” Nerland added via e-mail on Wednesday that “Walmart has not filed a lawsuit nor given the City a notice of an intent to file a lawsuit.” But that possibility is real enough that Nerland invoked Government Code Section 54956.9 in order to hold the closed session. It states, “A point has

been reached where, in the opinion of the legislative body of the local agency on the advice of its legal counsel, based on existing facts and circumstances, there is a significant exposure to litigation against the local agency.” Walmart spokeswoman Angela Stoner said via e-mail that the company has not made a decision on whether to sue: “We will be evaluating all options available to us. We have been an active member of this community for over 10 years and our goal is to continue to serve our customers and the community.” At the July 27 meeting just before the council voted, Mayor Jim Davis warned that denying Walmart’s expansion request would make the city vulnerable to a lawsuit that has the potential to bankrupt the city. The council’s denial was the second in three years after store officials scaled down the expansion in response to the council’s concerns on its first request. “They have every single right to sue the city,” said Davis. “If they sue the city, where are we going to have the income to defend ourselves? I don’t see that happening. We have been advised by legal counsel that we are subject to a lawsuit that we cannot defend. Walmart has done everything that’s been asked of them to do.” Despite the mayor’s concerns, council members Reggie Moore, Mar-

tha Parsons and Mary Rocha voted to deny the expansion, citing concerns that Walmart selling groceries at lower prices than existing stores would lead to the closure of those stores, the shutdown of shopping centers and creation of urban blight in Antioch. Unlike the previous meeting’s fourhour marathon discussion in the packed council chambers, only three residents weighed in on the issue at Tuesday night’s lightly attended meeting – all of them critical of the council’s decision. Nancy Fernandez rhetorically asked the council members, “Why is it OK for the City of Antioch to pay contract workers $10 an hour and it’s not OK for Walmart to do the same?” Martin Fernandez said the concern that other grocery stores would close was not based on official warnings from those stores’ management. He pointed out that Walmart’s parking lot was packed with customers earlier in the day, showing a lot of support for the store. “Disregard your emotions and political endorsements and vote honestly, representing all of the people of Antioch like you were elected to do,” he said. Another longtime resident pointed out that Walmart wants to expand by 33,000 square feet, “which is not even the size of a medium supermarket. And this is going to cause three major supermarkets to close and 160 people will

be unemployed? The largest impact it would have would be on Winco, the other discount, non-union store in the area. It would merely draw shoppers back to Antioch.” The council members did not respond to the comments. In other action Tuesday night, the council received a report affirming that Antioch’s drinking water meets state standards and is safe to drink. The council also approved the relocation and remodel of Mike’s Auto Body Shop on West 10th Street. Martin Fernandez said he supports the auto body shop’s request but argued that, according to the council’s logic in its Walmart decision, the council should deny it because there are 13 other auto body shops in Antioch. “Aren’t you worried about one or two of those going out of business and causing blight?” he asked. Council members responded that the site for the shop has been an eyesore, and that the remodeled building will be a significant improvement on that prominent location near Auto Center Drive. In addition, the council has tentatively scheduled the next Quality of Life Forum for Sept. 18 or 25 at either the El Campanil Theatre, Lone Tree Golf and Event Center or Deer Valley High School auditorium.

Toddler fights life-threatening illness by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Lily Anna Quiles is a 2½-year-old girl facing an adultsize challenge. Born with a rare form of dwarfism called Cartilage-Hair Hypoplasia, the blond-haired Brentwood toddler is currently recovering from a series of chemotherapy treatments and an accompanying bone marrow transplant in an effort to replace her defective immune system. “This is a difficult time for everyone, but we’re just doing what we can right now to help in whatever way we can,” said family member Brooke Robertson. “Lily’s fighting hard right now; she’s a strong personality and that will help her.” Because Lily Anna’s body does not produce enough white blood cells (which fight off infection), she has been on a weekly round of preventative antibiotics nearly since birth. As time went on, doctors cautioned her parents, Eric and Audra, that their daughter’s best chance for a normal, healthy life lay in a bone marrow transplant. “We knew that we had two options,” said Audra, in a blog post called “Lily’s Story.” “And that was to give her a bone marrow transplant to replace her defective immune system, or to keep her on the preventative medications and hope that she wouldn’t get sick for the rest of her life. “When Lily was 9 months old I found out I was pregnant with her little brother Easton. Easton was tested while still in utero and we found out he was a perfect donor match (for bone marrow).” After Easton was born in 2009, doctors saved his cord blood for Lily Anna’s transplant. However, once she began chemotherapy (to eradicate her damaged immune system and make way for the bone marrow, which will help her grow a new immune system) it became clear that she would not tolerate the series well, and it was sug-

Lily Anna Quiles (with dad Eric) is recovering from a bone marrow transplant that doctors hope will help the toddler re-grow a healthy immune system. gested that in addition to the cord blood, doctors could harvest bone marrow directly from the now 10-month-old Easton, thereby allowing Lily Anna to cut short her chemotherapy. The Quiles’ agreed, and last month Lily Anna received the bone marrow transplant from her brother at Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford University.

“We are now five weeks after the transplant and Lily is doing well – with the exception of the para flu virus,” said Audra. Common in compromised immune systems, Lily Anna tested positive as a carrier of the virus. “We will have to stay near the hospital now for a minimum of 100 days. If all goes well and there are no major complications, we should hopefully go home in mid-October.” As expected, the Quiles’ life for the past few months has been a whirlwind of activity as they divide their time between their Brentwood home and a hotel room in Palo Alto. Their oldest son, 10-year-old Jaden, has remained in Brentwood, where family members are caring him for while he goes to school. Expenses over the past few months have been adding up as the Quiles struggle to maintain a home, provide for the family and support themselves while in Palo Alto. Audra is unemployed and Eric has taken a leave of absence from work to be with his family during this time. “They (Audra and Eric) have to be within 20 minutes of the hospital so they have no other options than to be in a hotel – and it’s expensive,” said Robertson. In an effort to help with expenses, Robertson has been working to set up fundraising events and donation options to help offset the Quiles’ mounting bills so they can remain focused on getting their daughter well. An account has been set up for the family at the Bank of the West in Lily’s name under account number 013238675. Donations may be hand delivered to any Bank of the West location or mailed to Audra Quiles, 426 Wintergreen Drive, Brentwood, CA 94513. A fundraising car wash is planned for Sept. 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Brentwood Ace Hardware, 8900 Brentwood Blvd. For more information, call 925-6341512. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Fleeting glimpse of the cat in the shadows One of the wisest things we hikers can do on the trail is stop hiking. Not to snap photos, chug fluids or devour power bars. We stop to listen, watch – stop to become inaudible and invisible. The best brand of hiking makes room for no hiking at all. It was January, 2009, pre-dawn. A long brushstroke of ultramarine painted TAKE IT by a steady hand adorned the eastern horizon as I arrived at UTSIDE the Round Valley trailhead. Within 10 minutes I was stomping up a steep off-trail hill. Halfway to the crest, I paused to contemplate what I normally contemplate on my pre-dawn jaunts – nothing in particular. GER I’d been inert on the inERICKSON cline for about a minute, wearing the stillness like a cloak, when the corner of my right eye caught the flicker of a shadow in motion. Then it came into focus: the silhouette of a bobcat loping along a cattle path, passing 30 feet in front of me in the smoky luminescence of twilight. The air was perfectly still. The cat, despite its purposeful pace, was perfectly silent. Had I not stopped before it rounded the warp of the hill, had I been swishing my way through the hill’s short grasses, the cat would have heard me and taken a detour. If you’re an East County hiker with a hankering to spot large wildlife, hit the trail before sunrise or after sunset. You’ll spot the coyote most often and the cougar least. The bobcat falls somewhere in the middle – more plentiful than the cougar but like the cougar, nocturnal, stealthy and unwilling to let

O

you get close. You’d expect as much from a creature whose livelihood depends on ambush. Though it tips the scales at 20 to 30 pounds, making it only twice the size of a large housecat, the adult lynx rufus is one tough customer. Like its larger cousin the cougar (120 to 150 pounds), the bobcat has been known to take down an adult deer. Its preferred method of closing the deal is a leap uncoiled from cunning cover. In the unlikely event you get within 15 feet of a bobcat, be aware that it can make contact with you without ever making contact with the ground. A bobcat’s handsome markings and diminutive size might inspire you to offer the cuddly looking creature a saucer of milk. Resist that temptation. Here are three things every hiker should know about bobcats: As a citizen of the wild the bobcat’s a creature of instinct. You won’t find Raw Human on its menu. It interprets you – your flesh, your mere presence – as strange and undesirable. So relax. On the other hand, as a creature of instinct the bobcat is susceptible to mistaking you for prey. Should you crouch down, it doesn’t see a crouching human; it sees an object the size of breakfast. This is why children shouldn’t be roaming around unattended at dawn and dusk – bobcat time. Pointer No. 1: In the presence of a bobcat, make yourself as large an object as possible. Stand up and raise your arms. Another thing that flips the cat’s switch is an object in fast motion. The chase instinct in felines is powerful. It’s why runners and cyclists are at special risk in our regional parks at dawn and dusk. A see Outside page 7A

OUTDOORS

The track of a bobcat on the prowl on Mt. Diablo’s Back Creek Trail. The bobcat’s front paw (upper right), 2 inches in diameter, is larger than its hind paw (lower left). A bobcat’s trail is narrow; the hind prints tend to fall in register with the front prints. Should you run across a similar track but with an M-shaped heel pad, you’re dealing with a cougar. Why no claw marks? Cats’ claws are retractable.

bobcat that spots you zipping down the trail might not want to eat you, but it might not overcome the urge to run you down. It’s especially wise to slow down on narrow, winding trails. In heavily foliated passages or when the wind is up, a bobcat might not hear you coming round the bend. If it knows you’re approaching, a bobcat will surrender the trail to you. If you surprise it and it make it feel cornered or threatened, you could be in trouble. Pointer No. 2: When hiking at bobcat time, slow down. And if you suddenly meet the cat up close and personal, back off nice and easy. Don’t run. Daylight hikers who enjoy exploring off-trail should make a special point of engaging their bobcat radar. Bobcats tend to

establish more than one den. See that cave or rocky shelter? It could be a bobcat’s main den – and a female bobcat’s natal den. Don’t assume any critter inhabiting a hollow log or fallen tree is giving you a pass. At dawn and dusk, avoid deep-cut arroyos laced with sheltering tree roots and pocked with large holes. These could be bobcats’ auxiliary dens. Pointer No. 3: Steer clear of rough neighborhoods. If you encounter a cat in the wild, look for the bobbed tail, tufted ears and face, and dark bars on the inside forelegs. The cat won’t hang around for long, so savor the moment. You’re one of a fortunate few to have caught a glimpse of one of the world’s most adaptable and resourceful creatures, a true survivor – the cat in the shadows. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Appraisers have taken a lot of heat from the media and government in recent years for allowing the bubble in values to form. I think (for the most part…) that appraisers were just reporting on what “the market” was at that time before the bubble burst. But our politicians need to appear as if they are “doing something” so in 2009 they passed the Home Valuation Code of Conduct (HVCC). This made it illegal for the lender to have any input on which appraiser was chosen. To comply, lenders will often call a 3rd party appraisal clearinghouse who will assign an appraiser, seemingly at random. It is also illegal for the lender to even communicate with the person doing the appraisal. The reports have also gotten much longer. While this sounds good in theory to remove any undue influence, most people in the industry will tell you that the end result is that appraisal quality has gone down, while cost to the consumer has gone up. The clearinghouse takes a big chunk of the fee, but gives less to the actual appraiser than

before. Appraisers have to do more work for less money, so they have less time to put into each report to really research the area and the comps. Many of our local appraisers have left the business. I’ve met appraisers who are coming from as far away as San Luis Obispo. There has been a hue and cry from the real estate industry to repeal HVCC entirely. It has mostly fallen on deaf ears. They did make some recent tweaks to HVCC. They are requiring that the appraiser is familiar with the local area, they clarified that the use of a clearinghouse is not required, and they will allow some minor communication between the lender and the appraiser. While these are welcome changes, they probably still don’t go far enough. So if you are buying or refinancing a home, be prepared that your appraisal may cost $500 or more, and you may not be happy with the end product.

Kelly takes over as Rotary president Rotary International turned 106 on July 1, but retains as much vigor and vitality as any time in its history. Rotary founder Paul Harris announced to the Rotarians of his day, “This is a changing world. We must be prepared to change with it.” A century later, as Rotary continues KELLY to change in order to serve our ever-changing world, change is also ocurring at the local level. T h e B re n t wo o d Rotary recently celebrated its first Rotary EHLER Lunch under incoming President Paul Kelly. Incoming Sergeant At Arms Olga Vidriales provided seven laugh-filled minutes in “recognizing” birthdays, anniversaries and other events. Club members are serious about service, but have fun during meetings. The high spirits of the 82 club members are due, in part, to the wonderfully successful year conducted by outgoing President Fred Ehler, who in the coming year will continue to serve in a leadership capacity as the International Chair. During Brentwood’s recent CornFest, members of the Brentwood Rotary illustrated the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self ” by staffing the Rotary booth. Between six and eight Rotarians endured the noise, crowds and heat, cheerfully working side by side for the good of the city and the reputation of the club during each hour that CornFest was open. In addition to operating the CornFest booth, Brentwood Rotary’s plans for the coming year include annual projects such as the Rotary Golf Tournament, Texas Hold ’Em Tournament, Holiday Pancake Breakfast, Police Officers Appreciation BBQ, and Dictionary Distribution to every fifth-grader in Brentwood and Oakley.

Amazing educator antics Celebration Christian Preschool staff and teachers arriving at work recently discovered that instead of academics, they were participants in an Amazing Race. The race was planned as a surprise for the teachers, who came to work expecting a day of workshops between school’s summer and fall sessions. Each team was given a clue pinpointing the whereabouts of a local business, where the team completed a challenge in order to receive the clue to the next stop. Among the challenges were eating platters of obscure foods, mummifying team members with toilet paper, running obstacle courses through water parks while saran-wrapped to team members, building domino chains out of macaroni and cheese boxes, jumping into a pool fully clothed to fill a bucket of

Backing the burrowing owls Earth Island Institute has made a commitment to the preservation of burrowing owls recently by approving a speciesspecific conservation project in Antioch. On July 24, the institute’s board of directors adopted the Burrowing Owl Conservation Network under Earth Island Institute’s Project Support Program, and will provide sponsorship to the grassroots campaign and bolster muchneeded support for this imperiled raptor. Burrowing Owl Conservation Network began as group of dedicated birders, conservationists, biologists and concerned citizens who came together as the Friends of East Bay Owls to oppose the eviction of a resident population of burrowing owls in Antioch. In December of 2009, the group initiated conservation and advocacy efforts, appealed to California Attorney General Jerry Brown and organized a letter campaign to the Director of the California Department of Fish and Game to protect the Antioch owls and the species as a whole from habitat loss – a threat responsible for the loss of more than 50 percent of burrowing owls in the San Francisco Bay Area.

“The situation has evolved from a local issue to a California and North American-wide movement focused on restoring habitat, increasing populations and changing policies directly responsible for the species’ decline,” said Scott Artis, founding director of the Burrowing Owl Conservation Network. “The burrowing owls being evicted from the Kiper Blue Ridge housing development in Antioch highlighted the need for conservation work, advocacy, community and educational outreach, and research. “In order to reverse the declining burrowing owl population trend, we need to get our communities excited and directly involved in activities that promote preservation. We have a great opportunity to transform the public into citizen scientists and conservationists, as their sightings are essential in ensuring individual owls and colonies are being protected. Earth Island Institute is the logical next step, as it will enable us to expand our programs and focus on our conservation activities.” Burrowing Owl Conservation Network is actively seeking and requesting submission of all burrowing owl sightings by the general public.

Sweeping changes in store for Antioch streets This month, 1,041 streets in Antioch have been affected by changes in garbage pickup days. To match these important city services, it was necessary for Delta Diablo Sanitation District to change many streetsweeping schedules for Antioch residents. One of the ways to prevent pollutants from entering our creeks, river and bay is to remove them from streets before rain carries them into the storm drain and the watershed. Street sweeping also helps Antioch

comply with state and federal regulations related to the Clean Water Act. Residents can count on the street sweeper cleaning their streets on the same day each month. The grated openings you see in gutters collect rainwater and carry the water to storm drains to minimize street flooding. Anything on the streets, sidewalks, parking lots or driveways eventually washes into the storm drains and is carried directly to the river and Delta without treatment.

Street sweeping also gives neighborhoods a clean appearance, which is important for the community. Street sweeping in the downtown, industrial and other commercial areas provides a pleasant appearance that helps attract shoppers, new business and retains current business. In addition to green waste and debris, one of the greatest barriers to an effective street-sweeping program is parked cars blocking the path of street sweepers. To

assure that street sweeping is effective, residents are encouraged remove their parked vehicles from the street during scheduled street-sweeping days. With everyone’s help, the streets can be kept clean and attractive for all to enjoy. To check if your street-sweeping day has changed, go to www.ddsd.org for a full listing of Antioch streets in alphabetical order. – Contributed by Angela Lowry

Recruits help historian solve history mystery Historian Carol Jensen recently uncovered this real photo postcard, left, featuring students at Byron School circa 1908. On the back is inscribed a message, below, from a school girl named Nellie. Jensen is offering a reward to someone who can tell her more about the photo.

by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

On June 1, 1908 John Krohn began his journey walking around the perimeter of the United States, an adventure that took him 357 days to complete. Also on that date in history, a Byron schoolgirl mailed a postcard. Krohn’s fun historical feat makes the mailing of the postcard seem insignificant, but for historian Carol Jensen, the postcard is a clue, a glimpse into what life was like in Byron in the early 20th century. Jensen regularly searches eBay for East County artifacts that shed light on days long gone, revealing pieces of this region’s history. Through her searches, Jensen has uncovered and purchased several real photo postcards that provide a snapshot of East County history – but a mystery surrounds these glimpses in time. Jensen recently purchased a postcard sent by a Byron girl named Nellie. The postcard displays 45 students who attended Byron School, which educated first- through eighth-graders. The school was located on Holway Road, which is now Holway Drive, next to the Congregational church, but the photo reveals no other details. The students are lined up in front of the schoolhouse, and a horse and buggy stand off to the right. The rest of the story is unknown. “While the photo is a treasure, it’s the information on the back that is the most interesting,” Jensen said. “The message on the back says, ‘I got promoted in the second grade. I have a baby brother.’ The note is from Nellie, but the big question is: who is Nellie? What was her last name? Who are the other students in the photo? I’d even like to know the horse’s name. This is more than an image. It’s a history mystery.” Jensen was able to identify the school as Byron School based on her research on Byron. She has published three books about East County history, but postcards such as the mysterious message from Nellie are most fascinating to the historian, who is also a member of the San Francisco Bay Area Postcard Club. A real photo postcard is more than your average “wish you were here” message. A real photo postcard is a photograph printed on postcard stock. In the 19th and early 20th century, itinerant photographers would roam the country, stopping to take photos of anything and everything. They used their wagons as their darkrooms to instantly develop photo postcards to sell to their subjects. “These photographers would drive around and take photos and then print them on the spot,” Jensen said. “Oftentimes, people sent these postcards to friends and relatives living on the East Coast to show them how successful

Photos courtesy of Carol Jensen

they’d become in California. California immigrants particularly liked this service because they could show people in other parts of the country what their homes, farms, businesses and families looked like, and as they say, a picture can be worth a thousand words.” Jensen suspects Nellie was about 7 in the picture, which means she was born at the turn of the century. Jensen hopes someone will see the photo and be able to flesh out Nellie’s story. Nellie sent her postcard to Loyd Peterman of Willows, a Glenn County city just southwest of Chico. Jensen suspects Peterman was Nellie’s relative, possibly an uncle. “The tricky thing about photo postcards is that you won’t find them here in East County,” Jensen said. “You’ll find them on the East Coast, where most of them were sent. This particular postcard was in Napa, but postcards are everywhere, so they are difficult to track down. I hope that by publishing the photo in the paper, someone will see it and say, ‘Hey, that’s my mom’ or ‘that’s my grandmother.’ I just hope that one of our old-timers might remember Nellie and tell us a little bit about her.” As an incentive to readers, Jensen is offering a reward to anyone who can identify Nellie in the photo, provide her full name and give some details about her. To the first person to solve this history mystery, Jensen will offer a free, one-year membership to the East Contra Costa Historical Society. If no one comes forward, the prize will go to the person able to identify other people in the photo. The person who provides the most data wins. Those with information about Nellie or any of the students in the photo should e-mail Jensen at historian@byronhotsprings.com. The Press will feature other real photo postcard History Mysteries in upcoming issues. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Democracy alive and well in East County The corruption in Bell, Calif., where city government salaries and benefits ran amok, can, unfortunately, happen anywhere that people are not engaged with their government. Thomas Jefferson never actually said, “The price of freedom is eternal vigilance,” but it’s true. While most of us DITORIAL don’t have the time to be eternally vigilant about our government, it’s vital that some of the best among us step forward to run for public office and that citizens make informed decisions on who deserves to lead. No one would mistake Oakley for Bell, but Oakleyites were virtually nowhere to be seen four years ago when council members Bruce Connelley and Carol Rios ran unopposed for election. As a result, the election was canceled and they were de facto winners. Connelley, who had been appointed to his council seat, has served on the council for more than five years as well as becoming mayor for a year under the city’s rotating mayoral system – but has yet to receive a single vote from Oakley residents. Rios, who had been previously elected to the council, served as mayor last year, also without having received a vote in the 2006 non-election. Fortunately, Oakley residents have become more involved in their government in recent years, due in large part to controver-

sies like whether Walmart should become an anchor tenant in the River Oaks Crossing shopping center, high-density development projects and a proposed power plant on the old DuPont property. Connelley and Rios are once again on the ballot, but this time they are being challenged by four others: Rodger McKeon, a police officer who ran two years ago; Paul Seger, a community activist/videographer at council meetings; Oakland police Sgt. Randy Pope; and Joseph Klinge, who describes himself on the ballot as an electrician. As the population of Oakley is expected to double in 10 years, there will be a lot for these candidates to discuss and debate in the coming months. Indeed, democracy is alive and well with good candidates in competitive races throughout East County. Perhaps no contest will be more pivotal for the future of its constituents than the Antioch City Council race. Councilman Reggie Moore is running for a second term and Councilwoman Martha Parsons, who was appointed to fill the remainder of Mayor Jim Davis’ council term, is seeking her first elected term of office. Challenging them in a city that is dealing with an ongoing budget crisis, massive staff and service cuts, a proposed half-cent sales tax hike, lawsuits alleging police racism and the possibility of city bankruptcy are former councilman Arne Simonsen, former Antioch school

fear, not trust or confidence. Whether the weapon is loaded or unloaded, the image implanted in the minds of young and old is of a violent society where those who share the streets with us are a potential threat. The emotions activated by these images are anxiety and anger. The Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County is on record in support of Assembly Bill 1934, which limits the open carry of firearms in public places. Although I am not a pacifist, my commitment to Jesus Christ, who taught and modeled nonviolence in the midst of Roman occupation and oppression, requires that I oppose open carry of loaded and unloaded weapons. It is easy for us to glibly recite Gandhi’s “We must be the change we wish to see in the world.” If the world we wish to see is one of peaceful community, then we must not move through our communities feeding images of violence and emotions of fear.

board member Gary Agopian and current school board member (by appointment) Wade Harper. There will definitely be a change in Brentwood’s leadership since Councilman Brandon Richey decided to not run for re-election after one term. Richey, who offended some Antioch residents with his 2006 campaign slogan “Protecting Brentwood from becoming another Antioch,” also wasn’t afraid to buck the Brentwood establishment with votes against major projects such as the $28.5 million civic center and a $9.8 million trash facility as well as opposition to Measure F. But Councilman Chris Becnel, who voted for both projects, is seeking re-election to a second term. Surprisingly, given the emotional, contentious battles over those projects and Measure F, his seat and Richey’s vacant seat are being sought by only two candidates (as of press time Wednesday): Liberty Union High School District (LUHSD) Board member Steve Barr and Jim Cushing, a commercial realty broker. There will also be a change in the leadership of politically turbulent Discovery Bay. The man who is often in the vortex of that tornado, David Piepho, has decided not to run for re-election to the Community Services District Board. The two CSD members running for election are both appointees: Brian Dawson and Kevin Graves.

TO THE

Challenging for the three seats up for grabs are Walter MacVittie, who has served on the East County Regional Planning Commission and Transplan, and businessmen Jonathan Silver and Chris Steele. Voters will have the opportunity to choose from a mix of old and new candidates for some of the local school boards. Joanne Byer, who has become an institution after 25 years on the LUHSD board, is seeking yet another term along with Yolanda Peña-Mendrek, who is seeking her second term. Challenging for their seats and Barr’s vacant seat are recently retired LUHSD administrator Roy Ghiggeri, project manager Steven White and businessman Daron Spears. Interest lagged in some board races, however, to the point where the number of candidates matched the number of openings – in effect making those elections irrelevant. They include the Knightsen School District, Oakley Union Elementary School District, Knightsen Community Services District (which will still have a vacancy), Bethel Island Municipal Improvement District, Byron Sanitary District, Diablo Water District and East Contra Costa Irrigation District. We hope more candidates will step up in the future to serve on these boards and that the new East Contra Costa Fire Protection District board seats will be up for election in 2012.

EDITOR Announcing candidacy

Editor: I, Jonathan Silver, hereby announce my candidacy for the position of director for the Discovery Bay Community Services District. I would like to share a little personal background. I have been married for 25 years and have four children. I have lived in different parts of the country as well as overseas. We have called California our home for the past five years and own a home in the The Lakes subdivision. I have worked in the private sector and have been employed for the past 27 years in the laundry industry. My current position for the past five years has been in a general management position for a multinational corporation in the San Francisco offices. My responsibilities include supervising 110 employees who service 1,200 Bay Area clients. My business experience is extensive in complying with many federal, state and local government rules and regulations. I am responsible for an annual operating budget in excess of $8 million. Why I am running for the director’s position? I feel being a part of the community is participating and serving your community to the best of your ability. I currently have the time to give to the community along with my years of business experience and

personal expertise in budgeting, finance, operations and many more attributes necessary to be an effective director for the community. I have attended a few meetings and witnessed unreasonable treatment to our citizens, listened to several citizens ask informative questions and was concerned about the answers they received with regard to budget items, procedural policy and most currently a few of the board members lack of concern regarding the 9-percent rate increase proposed and passed by the board, with more increases forthcoming. In addition, this community has been stricken with the lack of fire services because of Contra Costa County’s inability to provide them. That should be unacceptable for our community and more objections should be voiced by all. As a director I will promise to commit the time to do the following: Treat all of our residents with dignity and respect they deserve. Strive to do my part to bring openness and transparency to our local government. I plan to foster trust between residents and the board, review and scrutinize the budget to contain costs to stay within the specified finances and to be fiscally responsible with our resources. Thank you for taking the time to read see Letters page 18A

Letters from page 16A this, and I look forward to serving this community and the citizens that call the Town of Discovery Bay their home. Jonathan Silver Discovery Bay

Thanks for beneficent barbecue Editor: Jim and Brenda D’Amico would like to thank everyone who came out on Thursday, July 8 to Black Bear Diner for the steak sandwich barbecue for Dustin Hellen, who was killed in a motorcycle accident.

Paramedic/AMR service in East County Editor: There continues to be some confusion about ambulance services and response-time requirements in the East County communities within the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District. Ambulance services are provided in the ECCFPD territory and throughout most of the county by American Medical Response (AMR) under a competitively bid contract approved by the Board of Supervisors in 2005 and managed by the County Health Services’ Emergency Medical Services Agency. The 2005 ambulance contract implemented a countywide plan to emphasize getting a paramedic, whether from an

ambulance unit or a non-transporting firstresponse unit, on the scene as quickly as possible to begin patient treatment. In many areas, the first-responder paramedic is on the fire engine. Since ECCFPD does not have paramedics on their engines, AMR is required by the county contract, at no cost to ECCFPD, to provide three single-paramedic-staffed, non-transporting “quick response vehicles” (QRVs) dedicated to the ECCFPD service area. The overall goal of getting a paramedic to the scene within 10 minutes 90 percent of the time remains the same in East County as in all other areas of the county. The 16:45 ambulance-response time is a standard set for the Bethel Island and Discovery Bay communities in the 2005 contract. This is an improvement over the prior 20-minute standard for these areas and is a different standard than that of the QRVs. A change approved in the number of required ambulance unit hours required from AMR was based on changed operational conditions and resulted in no changes in East County and no changes in response-time requirements anywhere in the county. According to county EMS, AMR has continued to meet or exceed all contract response-time standards, including the 10-minute standard for getting a paramedic on the scene in East County via the QRV program, again at no cost to the ECCFPD or its taxpayers. Detailed information on the county’s EMS system, including the AMR contract and monthly contract monitoring reports, is available on the county EMS Web site at www.cccems.org.

Letters from page 18A cil member I know about budgets, sources of monies, services, etc. Antioch’s proposed Transactions and Use Tax to be voted on is but another farce upon the public. I submitted an argument “against” it, which may not be selected for the ballot argument, but here it is: Vote “no.” Antioch’s proposed Transactions and Use Tax ultimately affects everyone’s finances and survival. These regressive taxes will also negatively affect businesses (driving customers to other cities). The additional tax monies generated go into the general fund, period. There’s no required specific personnel or programs funding (Section 3-5.415). The council-picked Citizens Oversight Committee will be council con-

trolled and powerless. The council majorities caused this. They want you to pay for their failed decisionmaking and fiscal mismanagement. They’re again using public safety scare tactics, programs and service cuts, etc., to justify taxing you some more. City officials must do more to cut costs. Start by cutting back certain excessive salaries and benefits, impose its own contract, and thereafter renegotiate accordingly. The APOA has refused to renegotiate its unjustified six-year contract (with guaranteed second highest pay and yearly increases), and refuses to pay for its greatly enhanced “3 percent at 50” retirement package. Management and police salaries, retirement pay, benefits and “spiking” terms have significantly increased costs, while other

employees thereafter get much less or suffer job loss. Examples of some employees’ costly estimated salaries and benefits: Manager – $260,000; attorney – $232,000; chief – $233,000; captain – $224,000; lieutenants – $194,000; sergeants – $145,000; corporals – $132,000; officers – $119,000. Ask them! They’ll retire with outrageous pay and benefits, but they’ve excluded themselves from less, while others must make do with even less. When given the choices between more manpower or more increases in pay and benefits, APOA chose pay and benefit increases, not manpower. It must stop! We’re already financially hurting. We have loss of jobs and homes, increased utilities, groceries, and medical costs. Antioch

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

A Moral Dilemma Before diving too deep into this subject, let us make it very clear that I am not suggesting, or leaning one way or another, rather, simply supplying information. And when I say “information” I do not mean legal advice – please CONSULT WITH A BANKRUPTCY SPECIALIST AND TAX ADVISER as this IS NOT INTENDED TO BE A PRIMER ON HOW TO AVOID YOUR DEBTS AND LOAN LIABILITY. So with that disclaimer, let’s get right into the thick of things and touch base on California’s anti-deficiency law - a law that originated during the Depression years to protect the banks, but is now doing just the opposite due to the rampant greed that kept them (the banks) from acting rationally in their own self-interest. You see California, as well as a handful of other states, have laws in place that allow a homeowner to simply walk away from their residence while not being held financially responsible for the debt they washed their hands clean of. In other words California has become the poster child for the “buy-and-bail” syndrome. As the numbers reflect, currently in California one out of every 204 loans has defaulted, many of you have either already had to, or will be, dealing with the moral dilemma of either letting your property go, or, according to Mr. Henry Paulson, “doing the right thing” and bleeding out your life-savings, IRA and credit card balances just to hold onto your house. Again, I’m not suggesting one way or another but let us be realists and come to grips with two very important facts when making any large financial decisions. First, it seems the only time we hear a finger-wagging lecture regarding money with content such as you “should”, or you “ought to”, is when it may be in your best interest to do the opposite; and second, the market will never function on

moral obligations alone…this is capitalism, and money should work. Obviously though, right now, money is not working, and not working on an extreme level which has caused Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to actually rework their foreclosure policies in order to deal with the difficult times we find ourselves in. These changes will have a direct bearing on the period of time from which you file for foreclosure until you can once again purchase a home: Situation Bankruptcy (All except Chapter 13)

Letters from page 19A perpetuated the myth of “Go to school, Get good grades, Get a job and Retire.” They wanted young people who could read, write and do math to at least at the eighth-grade level to fill the factories with semi-literate workers. However, they didn’t want these same young people to know how money works. This myth was kept up after companies went off shore, stopped paying into retirement and left massive unemployment. The youth of 21st century deserve better. They need to know how money works, and the debt-related devices; i.e., credit cards, student loans, mortgages and taxes. I believe that this century-old trend into debt can be reversed and will work toward that end in both the junior and senior high schools of Antioch.

Editor: On July 29, the Press published the article “New venue for local T.E.A. Party.” The article described a meeting in which “informative guest speaker” Gus Konstantaras made a presentation on the right to openly carry fire arms. In that article was the following quote from Gus: “Day by day these politicians, these Obama lovers, are taking our rights

away and pretty soon, we’re gonna blink, and it’s going to be 1939 all over again.” He also suggested that FEMA is creating concentration camps for those who oppose the government. Gus has a right to his opinions. The quote insinuates that the present administration is leading us to a Nazi-type regime. At least that is how I read the 1939 comment. Some of what Konstantaras said is dogmatic belief on his part and conjecture. This does not bother me. He has that right. What does bother me is what Jill Price, the East County T.E.A. Party organizer, said. She said she hopes these presentations will help educate the public, even if they are not T.E.A. Party members. “People can make good decisions when they have the right information, so it’s important to educate the public about important issues that face our daily lives,” Price said. This is unprofessional and quite ludicrous. Education insinuates that the ideas presented are factual or have some evidence in fact. If not, at least have a debate between two differing opinions. This “informative guest speaker” had none of that. This kind of propaganda passed off as informative education is deceptive. This kind of thing has occurred in much of the T.E.A. Party movement. A movement that started out grass roots and has some legitimate concerns is not taking a position against these practices. My only guess is that they need the people so they can drive the results they would like in an election. That is OK, but let’s be honest about it. It appears that the T.E.A. party has see Letters page 21A

Are you ready for real change? Editor: Right now President Barack Obama and Speaker Pelosi want to raise taxes by trillions of dollars. Their first target: The historic tax cuts of 2001 and 2003. If the Bush cuts are allowed to expire this is what will occur: One hundred million Americans would be facing an average tax hike of $1,716. This would bring back the Death Tax on grieving families, which is supported by President Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and liberals in Congress. According to recent estimates, this would increase taxes by $91 billion dollars. These proposed tax increases are bad enough … but that’s only the beginning. The Obama administration and Congress also want to impose a massive cap-andtrade energy tax that would raise electricity rates 90 percent, increase gas prices by 58 percent, send residential natural gas prices soaring by 55 percent and raise an average family’s annual energy bill by $1,241. And on health care: More than two dozen potential tax increases have been proposed or discussed by the liberals in Washington as they desperately seek new ways to bankroll Obamacare. Their ideas?

THEPRESS.NET

Everything from new taxes on soft drinks, beer and wine to an exorbitant “value-added tax” that would raise prices on practically everything you buy. Let your elected leaders know where you stand on plans by the liberals in Washington to drastically raise taxes on families, businesses and seniors. Fight for what is right in America. Make your voices heard. I’m only one of many that are not afraid to voice my opinion on the state of our great nation. Take back our country from big government. Congress and the White House need a reality check. Lower taxes and leaner government are the right policies for America. God bless America! Sandra and Edwin Stokes Antioch

DBPOA an embarrassment and liability Editor: To All 1,600 DBPOA members: The $25 per year gnat has now turned into the 800-pound gorilla roaming the streets of our neighborhood. There was a time when I was a victim of the selective enforcement of the DBPOA and was not a member in good standing. For the past several years I have just stayed under its radar and viewed the payment of the $25 per year as a necessary evil. I had no intention of getting involved as long as the DBPOA left me alone. This attitude appears to be held by the majority of the members of the association through the lack of involvement and the turnout for

the meetings and the elections. As homeowners within the jurisdiction of the DBPOA, we cannot afford to ignore this any longer. The DBPOA (this means you as a member of the association) just lost a case, and the judgment is for $65,000. The association (you) doesn’t have the money to pay. That potentially means that there could be a special assessment levied against your property! As I understand it, there are also other pending lawsuits as well. This is why I say the $25 per year gnat can no longer be ignored and could end up costing you money out of your pocket. There is much confusion right now regarding the recall, the two boards and the future of the association. I don’t particularly care which side of the fence you

are on but I do care that we are currently members of an association that is, at best, an embarrassment and, at worst, creating a huge liability for all of us. You can go to one of your local realtors for more information, or there is a site at www.dbpoac.com that appears to give a good historical perspective on this association. Additionally, if you are a member of the DBPOA and are selling your home, it would probably be a good idea to disclose all of this to a potential buyer. For those outside the DBPOA, this may just be a good selling feature. There is an election in September, and now is the time to stand up and be heard. Michelle Lenahan Discovery Bay

Art, Wine & Jazz Fest moves to The Streets by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

The Brentwood Art, Wine & Jazz Festival has been the city’s premiere cultural event for eight years, and this year, the event moves to Streets of Brentwood to add an alluring ambiance to an already enthralling experience for the senses. Since City Park – where the Art, Wine & Jazz Festival is traditionally held – is under construction, the Brentwood Arts Society was forced to find a new location for the event or face a two-year postponement. According to Society President Jack Gaughan, relocating the festival to the Streets of Brentwood will provide unique exposure. Gaughan expects that attendance will be up this year as people shopping at the Streets – a popular destination in Contra Costa County – stumble on the event. The ninth annual festival, scheduled for Aug. 28 and 29, will be located within the interior shopping area of the Streets. Vehicle traffic will be restricted to The Streets’ perimeter. “We’re really excited about the event,” Gaughan said. “Holding the event at the Streets presents a lot of new opportunities. For one, we’ll be using a vacant storefront as our first-aid station, and since there is a lot of access to power outlets, we’ll be able to have two stages this year, and we’ve set up the schedule so that music will be going constantly at one stage or the other. “And if you’re in a spot where you can’t hear the bands, we’ll have roaming a capella groups from the high schools filling in at the dead spots so that people will be able to enjoy

Contests from page 1A boards are also on the November ballot and include the following districts (a star next to the candidate’s name indicates an incumbent; in Knightsen and Oakley there will be no race, as the number of candidates running are equal to the number of available seats): Antioch Unified School District (two seats available) Gary Hack Angel Luevano

Bosnia from page 1A speech in Bosnian by event organizer Ismet Sefic, until it was translated. “We are thrilled to have this event,” Roddy – a Hall of Fame rodeo cowboy who has become the Max Yasgur of East County – told the crowd. “Working with these folks has been really nice. They are a hard-working people.” The event was being simulcast via the Internet to Bosnia and a similar celebration in Chicago, which prompted Lanphere to note, “The world is often said to be very small. In Antioch this has definitely been an international week. We’ve had the sister city of Chichibu, Japan. And here we are celebrating Bosnian culture. And I think that it’s a reminder that everywhere people are very similar. And we are very honored to have you start your first West Coast event here.” Mayor Jim Davis sounded a bit like Lawrence Welk as he addressed the attendees, using the word “wonderful” three times in his

music no matter where they are at the festival.” Entertainment Coordinator Ron Bonner said this year’s festival is being kicked up a notch, so regular festival goers and newcomers are in for quite the show. “We’ve put together a great lineup of Bay Area jazz artists who are going to put on a show like none other. All the performers are Yoshi’s (Jazz Club) alums, and that place sets the benchmark for quality jazz in Northern California, so these are experienced, professional performers, and hopefully people will really get into it and get up and dance and have fun. “Even if you aren’t familiar with jazz, these artists will be playing familiar tunes, so even the casual jazz listener will be able to appreciate the quality of each performance.” This year’s lineup includes Darryl Rowe Jazz Quintet, Delta Wires, Anna Maria Flechero, Lloyd Gregory, Raul Ramirez Latin Jazz Quintet, Larry Vann and Brentwood-based Victor Little Jazz Quartet, which released its debut album last year. The Liberty and Heritage high school big bands will also be performing at the festival to give audiences a taste of locally grown up-and-coming musicians. Representing the visual arts will be more than 40 artists stationed in the artist’s garden, located near the Rave movie theater. Local artists such as Jennie Floravita, Barbie Koncher, Rosalinda Grejsen, Bill Weber and Nancy Roberts will display their creations, and artwork will be available for purchase. Gaughan will also be showcasing his sculptures at the show. Young artists will also get their chance

to show off their budding skills at the Kids’ Hands On Activities station, where they can paint at an easel or make a sculpture with clay. This year, the children’s area will also feature a music area where kids can try their hands at basic instruments such as the triangle. As always, the Children’s Wall of Art, featuring the class projects of students in the Brentwood Union School District, will be on display. The work of the late Ron Beatty will also be featured in the garden. Beatty, who passed away in May, was named the Brentwood Artist of the Year shortly before his death. Beatty

will be remembered during a special presentation during the opening ceremony on Saturday morning. When it comes to wine, the Art Wine & Jazz Festival will feature wines from Cline Cellars (Sonoma), J Doran Vineyards (Livermore), Viano Vineyards (Martinez) and Watts Winery (Lockeford) as well as local vineyards such as Bloomfield and Hannah Nicole, both based in Brentwood. Bloomfield and Hannah Nicole were recently honored at the California State Fair, each taking home three awards. Food vendors will be stationed throughout the main festival area, but the Streets of Brentwood is also home to a variety of restaurants, including Bangkok 101 and Fuzio Universal Bistro. This is actually the Brentwood Art Society’s second partnership with the Streets, as the lifestyle center is also home to the art society-sponsored Broadway Under the Stars, a three-musical series that debuted at the Streets this summer. The series’ second installment, “The Auction Gallery,” will wrap up its run the weekend of the festival. Gaughan said one of the greatest advantages of extending the partnership with the Streets is the opportunity for climate control: “If it gets too hot, take a break and go shopping. Cool off and then come back out to join the fun.” The Brentwood Art, Wine & Jazz Festival will be held at the Streets of Brentwood, 2565 Sand Creek Road, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 28, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 29. Admission is free. For more information, visit www.brentwoodartsociety.net. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

first three sentences: “It is a great pleasure and honor to welcome everyone to our wonderful community, the city of Antioch. It’s a wonderful, beautiful day at Roddy Ranch. I hope everyone has a wonderful time enjoying the festivities.” Davis then read a proclamation declaring Aug. 7, 2010 West Bosnian Citizens Day in Antioch, noting the celebratory nature of the event but also citing the August, 1994 relocation of approximately 30,000 west Bosnian citizens to refugee camps. A refugee camp was the site of the Srebenica massacre. Kasumovic declined to discuss the war, saying, “It’s a long story. I don’t want to get emotional.” Asked what Bosnia is like, he said it “is a small country. Nice people. They like food, they like beer, like everywhere else.” One big difference between there and here, though, is the climate. Bosnia has all four seasons and its hills stay green year round, said Almir Sahnic, who was dressed in a traditional Bosnian costume topped with a fez. Both Kasumovic and Sahnic started out

in Oakland and moved to Antioch – two of about 20 Bosnian families in the city. “Most of the Bosnian population is in the San Leandro, Hayward, Oakland area,” he said. “When we came, that’s where we were placed. Through the years people are spreading out and moving.” Through events like the one at Roddy Ranch, the Bosnian community is becoming more visible. “This event is great in the

way that it invites everybody,” said Sahnic. “It’s open to the public, invites the American public to come and see us. We also want to tell them we are here and we would like you to see us as neighbors and friends. We are here and a part of this great community. We are a small part but we are a part of it.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

‘Sixth man’ gets schooled in the rules by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

The focus in high school sports is on the student athletes on the field, court and track. But there’s another group of players who aren’t on the roster but might be just as vital to the success of any team: the parents who pass on their genes, nurture their kids’ talent and ambition, sign them up for youth sports, play ball with them after school and on weekends, take them to practices, cheer them on at games, celebrate their successes, console them after losses and help raise funds for sports. To help these parents – the proverbial “sixth man” on the court – become familiar with what they and their children can expect and what’s expected of them, Freedom High School held its annual Fall Sports Parents Night last week. Several hundred parents and student athletes turned out in the gym to listen to a motivational speaker, cheer the saving of freshman sports and meet with the coaches. Unfortunately, the reverberating acoustics in the gym made it difficult to understand Joe Thomas, lead trainer with the Positive Coaching Alliance. He advised parents that instead of focusing on the score or wins and losses, parents should ask their kids what they enjoyed most about a practice or game and what they learned from it. Athletic Director Steve Amaro provided the good news that enough money had been raised to save the freshman sports program at Freedom, Heritage and Liberty for this year, which was greeted with applause. “I would like to thank all of you who supported that effort,” he said. “I remember sitting in the (Liberty Union High School) District office on June 2 and saying to myself, ‘What an overwhelming task we have ahead of us.’” Amaro praised the efforts of the Freedom Sports Boosters Club led by Linda Matteri for helping make it possible. “If you haven’t joined the boosters yet, I really en-

We are planning right now fundraisers for sports for next year. We want to take this momentum and push it all the way through.” Many of the parents and athletes then went to various rooms to meet in smaller groups with individual coaches. The largest group remained in the gym to listen to football Coach Kevin Hartwig talk them through the two-page contract that each player and parent must sign. The number-one item on that contract has nothing to do with throwing a football or tackling, however. “The biggest thing we want our kids to have is a positive attitude,” said Hartwig. “We are here for education first. We need to be good students. Because that way we aren’t going to get a bad rap just because we are football players. Our kids have done an awesome job so far this year of being positive role models on our campus. We started a program a couple years ago and we have improved every year – it’s our family system. It’s brought us all together; we patrol ourselves. The kids have been awesome

role models.” On the less positive side, two unexcused absences from practice, regularly cutting classes and significant disciplinary violations will result in dismissal from the team. Players will be suspended for a game if they have one unexcused absence, occasionally cut class, have a minor disciplinary violation or too many tardies. They also must maintain a 2.0 grade point average with no more than one F. “They need to be in class,” said Hartwig. “If they are not in class, they have bad grades. If they have bad grades, they can’t play any sport, go to dances or do anything at Freedom High School. If they do have bad grades, we have a study hall. If they have a D or below in class or below a 2.0 they must come Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 7:30 for a study hall. They are there until the D comes up or their GPA is above 2.0. We want to work on some study skills. “Hopefully, we won’t have discipline issues. But if they are suspended they may be removed for the whole year or just a game, depending on the situation. We’ve only had two of those issues in eight years here.” Half of the contract is devoted to deal-

ing with parent-coach communication and the procedure for parents filing complaints by talking with the coaches first. “We have an open-door policy,” said Hartwig. “If something happens, good or bad, or you want to talk with us, give us a call and we will set up a time and we are happy to meet with you. Say something happens Friday night after game and you’re upset and come up to me right there and say, ‘Can we meet?’ I’m just going to say, ‘We’ll meet first thing Monday.’ Everyone’s cool, calm, collected and we get to the bottom of it. “That way we can get all three parties together, get all three sides of the story and we will make it work. We might be wrong. The kid might give you wrong information or he may be misunderstood or misunderstands what’s going on. The questions might be, ‘Why am I second string? Why is Joey starting over my son?’ I’ll talk about your son, but I won’t talk about someone else’s. Open door, give us a call, get a hold of us and we’ll get back in 24 hours and we’ll meet in 24 hours. That way it doesn’t brew and get out of control.” The team begins working out in pads Monday, Aug. 16 at 3 p.m. An intra-squad scrimmage will take place Saturday, Aug. 21. The freshman start at 9 a.m., followed by the JV and then varsity versus varsity. The first scrimmage against other teams is held Aug. 27 at Las Lomas High. Remaining to be decided is the date of one of the biggest games of the year: the Bell Game against Liberty. It’s been scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 10 at Liberty. It was moved from the normal Friday game day because school is out on Nov. 12, the day after Veteran’s Day. The move creates a four-day weekend for students and staff. Hartwig has been pushing to move the game back to Friday in order to provide more than two days of practice after the preceding week’s game against Heritage. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

region, but we focus much more on fundamentals.” While the on-court success is nice, it’s not what is most important to Ketchel: “At this age, it doesn’t matter if we win a case full of trophies if the boys are not developing the skills needed to succeed at the next level. It all comes down to fundamentals. Our boys are also required to keep their grades up and be involved in a reading program this summer. If a student-athlete isn’t committed to that aspect of their development, they won’t be playing with us. “We are completely parent-supported. And, as a

faith-based organization, we put God first and try to teach life lessons from a Christian worldview within the framework of our program. We want our young men to set positive examples on and off the court. And I can honestly say that we have managed to attract young men of great character. For this program our goal is not just to build basketball players; it is also to help our studentathletes succeed in life.” For more information, call Ketchel at 925-321-2957 or e-mail coachmikek@gmail.com.

The Titans Basketball Club is holding ongoing tryouts for its 12-to-13-year-old team, mostly to replace departing players due to the limited number of available spots. “We have only nine uniforms, and we usually play with seven. For us, everyone has to be an impact player,” said Coach Mike Ketchel. The high standards are understandable, considering that the team has enjoyed a great deal of success. “Recently our boys won first place in the July Slam N Jam Western Showcase tournament held in Oakland. Two players have been selected to the Adidas National Junior Phenom Camp, a national exposure camp in San Diego that brings the best young players in the U.S. and internationally for a competition and scouting camp in grade levels entering sixth, seventh, and eighth grade.” They are point guard John Ketchel, 12, from Adams Middle School, a returning Adidas Jr. Phenom National All-Defensive Team member from 2009; and Adam Saleh, also an Adams seventh grader. “It is truly an honor to see our boys, Adam and John, playing at this elite level, among the best of the best,” said Ketchel. “This is a great reflection on our program and teaching philosophy. Not too shabby for a team with no gym.” Unlike many successful club teams, the Titans’ success can’t be attributed to a big budget. “We operate on a shoestring budget,” said Ketchel. “We practice at a local outdoor court. I’m very sensitive to the costs associated with travel teams. In many cases, ‘tournament’ teams are out of control, with too many games but too little training. We do compete in a tough inner-city league, and we also compete in a limited number of tournaments in our

The girls, under the direction of Coach Cecelia Seiber, took the top spot in their league this year; the boys placed second. “It has been a tremendous success this past six years,” said Krahnke. “It’s a pleasure and reward to see these kids come through the program here and see some of them now attaining high school awards and recognition.

The boys placed third out of 22 teams nationwide, including a team from the Dominican Republic. The U12 Titans Blue team went 8-1, winning eight straight games before losing to the Arkansas Shockers in the semifinals – the Titans’ lone loss. The Nebraska trip included the 2010 College World Series Championship Game. The boys were a part of the CWS history, celebrating the last game ever played in Rosenblatt Stadium, in which South Carolina beat UCLA.

Kids thrive in flag tag Biddy Flag Tag is the perfect introduction to organized team sports for children 4-6. During the eight-week program, children learn the fundamentals of football while using footballs and flags in a fun, safe and family-oriented environment. Each Saturday morning class meets for one hour and includes a group warmup, practice and game, all in a non-com-

Diehard from page 1B mentals of the game and hone their skills. “We find a place for everybody,” said Perkins. “If you are ready to play travel ball, great. But we believe there’s a ballplayer in every kid – we just have to pull it out of them. We will have an ongoing program for those kids to get them ready for spring season. If they don’t make a travel team, we will get them prepared to meet their goals. It’s more important to get them prepared than to get them in a tournament.” The season lasts from September through December. Diehard teams usually play at least three games in a tournament – more if they’re winning. Tournaments are held in Brentwood, Sunnyvale, Manteca, Ripon and other sites within a 1½hour drive. The cost is $150 per month, which covers the overhead, tournament fees and coaches’ stipend. For younger kids it’s a good introduction to the game of baseball; for those en-

tering high school, Diehard baseball helps get them ready to try out for the school team the following spring; for those already playing high school ball, it’s a great way to stay in shape and keep working on their game. “All of the kids in our high school level program, we had them explain where they are at and what they want to accomplish by high school tryouts,” said Perkins. “The younger kids are quite impressed with that. We are trying to teach them that it’s important to understand how to play the game properly so you are well in advance (of other players). Over the next decade, one of the things we are going to see is kids going into high school much more prepared, as well as knowing how to communicate with your coaches.” To sign up for the tryout or for more information, call Perkins at 925-382-9045 or Luna at 925-759-5706.

Doty scores hat trick at Speedway by Jack Menges Correspondent Jerry Doty had quite a night last weekend at the Antioch Speedway, and he barely missed a rare three-win dwarf car sweep on the auto racing card. He’d love to come back Saturday night on a track he enjoys but the dwarf cars aren’t on the program. The dirt modifieds and wingless sprints will share the top billing on the weekend card, augmented by the mini trucks, pure stocks and four bangers in supporting roles. Doty started off his big night with a victory in one of the three heat races, which were necessary when 17 dwarf cars checked in for the program. He then went on to finish second to Tom Brown in the trophy dash. He was back on the winning trail in the main event, which he won over hard-driving Ricky Rivera. Alex Stanford served notice he’s a top contender in the rich dirt modified double-header scheduled for the weekend of Aug. 28 at Antioch and Merced. The winners of the main events those nights

will pocket $3,500 each. Stanford checked in at Antioch from his Chowchilla home Saturday night to win the main event. Then he established himself as one of the favorites for the twin bill when he captured the feature race at Merced Sunday night. The results: Dirt Modifieds: Heat Winners – Duane Cleveland and Rick Karnes; Main Event – Alex Stanford Dan Gonderman and Troy Foulgers. Super Stocks: Heat Winner – Eric Berendsen; Main Event – Mike Gustafson, Mitch Machdo and Larry Damitz. Dwarf Cars: Heat Winners – Nick Squatrito, Clayton Dortzbach and Jerry Doty; Trophy Dash – Tom Brown, Doty and Dortzbach; Main Event – Doty, Ricky Ricardo and Tony Carmignani. Four Bangers: Heat Winner – Patti Ryland; Main Event – Ryland, Justin Silvera and Ken Radabaugh. Hard Tops: Heat Winner – Tommy Thompson; Main Event – Dan Williams, Thompson and George Connor.

Nancy Vesely Nancy Vesely passed away of natural causes in Brentwood on July 31, 2010. Her younger sister, four grown children, their spouses and six grandchildren will lovingly remember her. Nancy was born on July 3, 1933 in Wisconsin. After school, she moved to San Francisco to train formally as a Christian Science nurse, and met her husband, John. As she continued her nursing career, they raised four children before John’s death in 1974. Nancy re-married 10 years later and lived in Reno, Nev. until her second husband’s death in 1997. She retired to Brentwood in 2000 to be near her family. Nancy will be remembered in her community as the lady buzzing about town in her electric wheelchair and butterfly pillow. She truly enjoyed the small-town events such as Brentwood’s Farmers’ Market and the annual CornFest. She loved sewing and quilting, and often spoke of the good friends she played bingo and dominoes with in her retirement community. Nancy wasn’t one to complain about her disability; rather, she looked for the silver lining and was an inspiration to any that knew her. She was a wonderful friend, big sister, devoted wife and a loving mother. In celebration of Nancy’s life, please smile at someone today, pet a dog or hug a

In addition, friends Norma Knowles, Leroy Metheny and many nieces and nephews survive him. All who knew him will miss him.

Mouthguard a must *( 7,211),'(17 for high-contact sports *( 7& by Dr. Dikran Deragopian A mouthguard is a flexible plastic appliance worn during recreational and athletic activities to protect the teeth from trauma or loss and to prevent jaw fractures, neck injuries and concussions. It has been estimated that wearing a mouthguard will reduce concussions by 50 percent. Mouthguards also minimize lacerated and bruised lips and cheeks by keeping these soft tissue areas away from the teeth. This is especially true for youngsters with orthodontic braces. The mouth is the most injured area of the body during contact sports. Wearing mouthguards is highly recommended for those participating in boxing, basketball, field hockey, football, ice hockey, lacrosse, martial arts, soccer, wrestling, water polo and rugby. The American Dental Association recommends that mouthguards be used by those partaking in acrobatics, gymnastics, volleyball, handball, racquetball, skiing, skydiving, squash, surfing, weightlifting, shot putting and discus throwing. Participants in recreational activities such as skateboarding and bicycling should wear mouthguards, especially in competition. An effective mouthguard should remain in place during the activity while not interfering with speech or breathing. It should provide maximum protection while being comfortable to wear. There are three types of mouthguards:

• Stock (ready-made): Most sports stores carry these. They are the least expensive. Available in various sizes and shapes, they cannot be adjusted to fit your mouth. • Mouth-formed (“boil and bite”): These are relatively inexpensive. The plastic mouthguard shell is boiled in water for 10 to 45 seconds, cooled under tap water and molded and adapted directly in the mouth. Compared to custom-made guards, the fit is not as accurate, and it might not last as long. • Custom: This type is highly recommended and the most effective. We make them at our dental office from a cast of your teeth. While they’re a bit more expensive than the storebought variety, they provide the greatest protection and comfort. We know it’s well worth your safety and peace of mind. Like any other sports gear, mouthguards can wear out and lose their effectiveness and might need to be replaced after each sports season – although proper care will increase their longevity. Heat is bad for mouthguards, because it causes them to deform. Keep them out of direct sunlight and never leave them in a closed car. Rinse them under cold water with each use, and occasionally use soap and cold water to clean them. When not in use, store your mouthguard in a well-ventilated plastic box or in a container immersed in water. Don’t handle or try to wear someone else’s mouthguard. – Courtesy of DentalSenders

DV novelist skips in Deer Valley High School science teacher Jeff Adkins has recently published his first novel, “The Boy Who Skipped,” a semi-autobiographical account of his years growing up in Eastern Kentucky. It’s the story of an underdog fighting impossible odds and a coming-of-age love story peppered with anecdotes about growing up as a geek in a small town. Set in 1970s Appalachia, “The Boy Who Skipped” illustrates what it’s like to grow up academically gifted in a time and a place where finding something as simple as a map of the sky was a challenge. Among the story’s highlights are a leaking pipe that provides cover for an escape plan, what happens when you fire a rocket at your classmates, and why

being an unconditional friend can have life-transforming consequences. Adkins credits his high school drama teacher with cultivating in him the life skills of hard work, appreciation of criticism and a belief that with enough effort, nearly any challenge can be overcome. “The Boy Who Skipped” is available from www.lulu.com, a print-on-demand publisher. Paperback and hardback editions are available starting at $23.99. Shipping is free during the summer. To order the book, visit www.lulu.com/spotlight/ astronomyteacher. For more information about “The Boy Who Skipped,” visit www.lulu.com/ spotlight/astronomyteacher or e-mail Adkins at astronomyteacher@mac.com.

Author to sign new book Author Dixie Owens will be at Barnes & Noble, 5709 Lone Tree Way in Antioch, on Friday, Aug. 13 at 5:30 p.m. to sign copies of her novel “Becoming Kate.” The event is free and open to the public. Owens’ work is suffused with sorrow and hope, disaster and salvation to life – guaranteed to keep you guessing how it will end. The novel’s central character, Liz, a 29year-old mother of two and wife, is in the prime of her life. But when her car is hit head-

on by a truck, her family is left to believe that she’s dead. What her family doesn’t know is that Liz awoke a few hours after the accident in the body of an 11-year-old girl. Kate is now the survivor of the first-ever brain transplant. Shocked by the reality of her new life, Liz struggles to make sense of her new life as Kate, who still remembers Liz. Dixie Owens and her husband have a blended family of seven children, 15 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

Summerset Singers enhance legacy by Ray Carter Correspondent It’s been 10 years since the Summerset Singers began entertaining themselves, and a host of attentive listeners, with remarkably diverse concerts featuring everything from show tunes to gospel hymns and Christmas carols. “Celebrating Down Memory Lane,” the Singers’ recent summer show, was enthusiastically received by large audiences at Summerset Vista’s activity center. Highlighting many of the chorus’s favorite tunes from past years, the show was a hit with audiences – as well as chorus members. The two-hour program included 10 full chorus numbers, four ensemble pieces and five solos. The talented singing group has grown from 12 members to a full chorus of 40 voices. Summerset III resident Doctor Leslie Harrold summed up attendee sentiments when he said, “Just when you think it couldn’t get any better, somehow every year it does.” John Slatten, who sits on the El Campanil Theatre Board of Directors, thought the concert was “absolutely great!” He went on to say how impressed he is with the talent in Summerset and far East County as a whole. Madeline Ongwarsky, Elizabeth Burger and Joyce Strand attended the show’s Sunday matinee and all agreed the concert was a wonderful afternoon of listening. They told the chorus to keep up the good work and looked forward to hearing it next year. In a bittersweet moment, Singers Director Ken Young, a founding member of the group, bowed out of his leading role to pursue personal goals. He said he hopes to improve his musical skills, take some composition lessons and perhaps pen a cantata the Summerset Singers can perform. He vowed to remain in close touch with the chorus and its members. Young turned chorus direction over to Assistant Director Ernie Macintyre. Ann DePlama will be second in command. Catherine Thompson and Louise Jensen will continue as the group’s tal-

ented accompanists. Macintyre has expressed his desire to see the chorus grow to 60 or more members and has already started assembling music for the holiday concert.

This year’s summer show was produced by Linda Stanley, who gave credit to the many chorus volunteers and their spouses who performed all the functions required for a successful three-perfor-

mance show. The Summerset Singers celebrated their 10th anniversary at an evening party in June at the Nines restaurant. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.
