Supporting Juggling for Jude
September 29, 2017
by Aly Brown Staff Writer
Antioch’s In-Shape will soon get the community in shape to kick cancer to the curb in a family-oriented fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Juggling for Jude – a soccer skills and bootcamp clinic – will take place Oct. 8, from 10 a.m. to noon. The event will be hosted by Hollis Belger, age 13, a renowned fundraiser and founder of Juggling for Jude. She started the program when she was 9, using her soccer skills to benefit St. Jude through various clinics. In addition, KUIC Radio will emcee and play music throughout the event. Kris Mulkey, vice president of marketing for In-Shape, said her team wanted to offer something special for both kids and adults to get involved when they first began planning this month’s fundraising events. “Most of the time, things are geared toward adults, and see Jude page 30

Group looking to build 14-acre all-inclusive community center by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer
What started as a local group’s idea to build a soccer field in Oakley may end up becoming a 14-acre project on the northwest corner of Oakley and Neroly roads that will include a senior housing facility, a gym, a temporary shelter, a full-time private school, an events hall and a mosque. “We thought we would start a soccer field. Then that grew into a gymnasium. Then we thought, if we are doing that, we might as well do some senior housing,” said Abdul Maiwand, a Brentwood resident and mem-

Abdul Maiwand ber of a volunteer group of East County residents that hopes to build the Ibn Sina Community Center in phases over 10 years. City officials are currently doing a standard review of the proposed plan, which includes studies to examine the traffic, sound and environmental effects, the city said in a statement.
The plan isn’t expected to go to the city council for review until next year, said Oakley City Manager Bryan Montgomery, who declined to answer further questions on the matter. If all goes as planned for the group and the project is approved by the city, the passionate contingent envisions finalizing

Heritage cheer team earns exemption for prestigious event “ This competition is
by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer
The Heritage High School traditional cheer team erupted with joy over a state decision to allow cheer teams to compete on Sunday during the National High School Cheerleading Championship in February. The one-time exemption, granted by the state high school sports governing body, was needed for an estimated 50 teams to compete in the late stages of the Florida event, since all state high school competitive cheer activities are now governed by state body – and that body prohibits competition on Sunday. “This is a huge competition – the biggest high school competition in the country,” said Tatum Garcia, Heritage head varsity cheer coach. Ray Valverde, Liberty Union High School District (LUHSD) board member, initiated the local exemption effort, which was approved by the local high school sports governing board and then forwarded to the state’s governing body, where the exemption was granted. “Schools have been fundraising large sums of money to go to this event, so the time and effort put into doing this has been noted, and that is why the CIF has granted this one-time waiver,” said Rebecca Brutlag, a CIF media-relations officer.
super important to us. We really look forward to being able to showcase our abilities at such a prominent competition, and we truly do work so hard to get there.
Madyson Sutton, Heritage cheerleader The competition, considered one of the most prestigious in the nation, is held at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando and is nationally televised on ESPN and ESPN 2. As of now, Heritage is the only confirmed LUHSD squad planning to attend the event. Squads must punch their ticket to the competition by qualifying at a Universal Cheerleaders Association camp or a separate competition. “I was very pleased,” said Valverde of the outcome of the waiver effort. “There are a lot of happy faces throughout the State of California.” Garcia said competition officials made

plans to allow all California squads to complete their routines on Saturday if the waiver wasn’t granted. But that would have put the teams at a disadvantage by forcing them to perform three times on Saturday, instead of just twice. It would have also forced them to wait for results after the other schools competed Sunday. “I am very thankful that we did not have to do that,” Garcia said. Heritage and other California squads will now compete no more than twice on Saturday, with a shot to compete in the competition finals on Sunday, if they qualify. “This competition is super important to us,” said Madyson Sutton, a Heritage cheerleader. “We really look forward to being able to showcase our abilities at such a prominent competition, and we truly do work so hard to get there.” Heritage has come close to reaching the championship finals the last two years, and they feel this could be the year they break through to the final round, Garcia said. “My team is really strong this year,” she said. “I feel if we go there and hit our routine, we will have no problem competing in finals on Sunday.” Heritage opens its competition schedule this weekend.

Hunting houses in Discovery Bay by Lauren Huffmaster Correspondent

This deep-water oasis was one of three homes Gina and Ben Galetti looked at in Discovery Bay as part of their HGTV “House Hunters” episode. Hunters” spent five days filming in Discovery Bay, during which time, they discovered multiple businesses that added to the unique character and charm of the community. One business highlighted in the episode was Discovery Bay Paddle Boards. Carol Lehrer, the former owner of Discovery Bay Paddle Boards and 38year resident of Discovery Bay, then received an email from “House Hunters,” requesting that she become part of the production. Lehrer allowed show producers to utilize her home and business for
the making of the show. “The crew was very nice and professional,” Lehrer said. “They were discrete, with only a couple of cars and small

Residents of the ‘Live Where You Play,’ community know their town is special, and now viewers of the popular “House Hunters” television program know it too. David Greene, a real-estate agent with Keller Williams East County, pitched the idea of a “House Hunters” episode in Discovery Bay, and producers of the HGTV cable show agreed. The episode, which aired on Sept. 14, featured Gina and Ben Galetti, a couple relocating from the Sacramento area. The Galetti’s were looking to live on or near the water and considered the communities of Brookside, Rio Vista and Discovery Bay. But after their first tour of Discovery Bay, the couple fell in love with the small-town feel and highquality homes nestled along the sparkling Delta. “It is every realtor’s dream to have their client thrilled,” said Greene. “To be able to have a client on a television show is a very rewarding experience.” After touring almost 20 homes, Greene found three potential homes for the Galetti’s to tour on film. The episode features the couple walking through each house and listens in as they weigh the pros and cons during their decision-making process. Greene and the staff from “House

Fundraising concert gives voice to cause by Aly Brown Staff Writer
The Marshall Tucker Band and other artists will soon venture to Campos Family Vineyards as part of an effort to raise funds for lung-transplant recipient, and Brentwood resident, Tiffany Rich. Diagnosed at birth with cystic fibrosis, a lung and digestive disease, Rich’s parents encouraged their daughter to live a normal life, full of sports, boating and the things she loved. But over the years, her lung condition deteriorated, and it became harder for her to continue her lifestyle.

A 2007 Foothill High School graduate from Pleasanton, Rich was determined to persevere, bringing her IV pole to college classes at St. Mary’s College. “I got some looks, but everybody was understanding and in awe of me, not sure how I was pulling through,” she said. “I just don’t quit.” As time and her disease progressed, Rich was told at 24 that she needed to be evaluated for a double lung transplant, and she was listed to become a recipient in 2014. From there, Rich and her family and friends discovered the importance of fundraising. They put forth a tremendous effort to offset her medical expenses while raising awareness around the importance of organ donation through various small events. Rich and one of her friends also launched a social-media campaign to raise awareness and encourage people to become donors. She made a poster of her story, took photos and posted them on various social-media outlets. The posts went viral, which led Rich to a unique opportunity – meeting singer, songwriter Taylor Swift. “(Swift) was the nicest person; so sweet and so genuine,” Rich said. Doctors predicted Rich would have to wait six months to a year to receive new lungs, but she waited for two years and eight months before receiving them Nov. 30, 2016. She called it her second chance

possible when it comes to transplants – it’s $15,000 just for one clinic visit. Without insurance, it’s $4,000 for one round of medicine (a 90-day supply),” Rich said. “It’s scary. And that’s just for one medicine. I’m on maybe 30. Transplants are a miracle, but it comes with costs.” With the high costs in mind, Rich’s family wanted to run a larger event. They reached out to Campos Family Vineyards and arranged the concert with the Marshall Tucker Band. Rich’s mother, Darcy, hopes for a great turnout and show of support. “I just hope people come out to support my daughter,” Darcy said. “The medications are very expensive, and we just want to make sure she’s being taken care of.” Rich was excited to see the popular band voyage out to Byron. “Campos is a great venue, and the people who own it are amazing,” she said. “I just want the community to know that organ donation is so important. Becoming a donor could save someone’s life.” The Marshall Tucker Band will fill the night of Oct. 28 with classic favorites while attendees sip wine and picnic on the lawn in what Rich said will be a celebration of life.

EMAIL FRAUD IN REAL ESTATE
by Tony Kukulich Correspondent
Feature: Deputy Ryan MacLennan
Agency: Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office At an age when many young people entering college struggle to find the right major, Deputy Ryan MacLennan knew how he wanted to spend his career. “Right when I started going into college, that was going to be my plan – to go into law enforcement of some sort,” he explained. “I had a couple of family members who were cops – one was in the LAPD, and the other was with the U.S. Postal Service. They really liked their jobs, and it sounded like something that would be interesting to me.” MacLennan, a Georgia native, came to California to attend Chico State and majored in business management, just in case his career goal of becoming a cop didn’t work out. But it did work out, and sooner than he expected. Before entering his senior year, MacLennan applied with different agencies in Contra Costa County and was quickly picked up by the Sheriff’s Office. Now, as a veteran with nearly 20 years of service, MacLennan still finds satisfaction with his career choice. “I like the fact that you’re not stuck in an office or stuck in a cubicle,” he said. “You’re actually out in the field. You get to continuously help people. To me, it’s a

fulfilling job. I get a lot out of it. Three years ago, MacLennan was promoted to field training officer (FTO), and in that capacity, he spends much of his time training new deputies. “I’d estimate that 90 percent of the deputies I train have had no law-enforcement experience,” MacLennan said. “You can tell pretty quickly if they’re cut out to be in law enforcement or if they’re not cut out to be in law enforcement. It definitely takes a certain kind of personality to deal with the people and the crimes.” Married with two children and living in Elk Grove, MacLennan said most of his free time is spent driving his high schoolaged daughter from one activity to the next. Aside from his chauffeur duties, he works out as much as he can and gets in an occasional round of golf. Of his job, MacLennan said every call is different. “No two calls are the same. It’s one of the most difficult jobs, but it’s one of the most rewarding jobs that you can do,” he said. “It’s definitely not for everybody.”
Right before and after a real estate transaction closes, large sums of money are transferred. The lender wires money into the title company and the buyer wires their closing funds in (down payment plus closing costs), then the seller’s proceeds are wired out. The scammers are aware of this, and they try to trick people into sending those funds to them instead. Here’s how it works: They send out thousands – if not millions – of emails to random email addresses that look like they come from a real title company or a lender. They will look and sound very official. They will have names that sound like real title company names, or I’ve seen one that said their name was “The Title Company” (I’m not kidding!). The email will say the wiring instructions for your real estate transaction have changed, and they provide new wiring instructions for you. About 99.99 percent of the people who receive these emails say to themselves, “Hmm, this is obvious SPAM, because I’m not buying or selling a house,” and they discard the
email. But there have been a few people who are about to buy or sell a home, and when they get that email, they think it’s legit, and they have wired hundreds of thousands of dollars to a scammer, or they’ve given out their own bank account information, only to have it cleaned out. These scammers work fast, so as soon as you wire the funds, they sweep them out to another bank. So if you get an email like this (I get several per week), do NOT email them, do NOT click on any links and do NOT call the phone number in their email. Call your agent and your title company to confirm any changes to wiring instructions. By the way, wiring instructions almost NEVER change!

Key supporter of tunnels deal backs out Proponents of the Delta tunnels project were dealt a damaging blow last week when a crucial financial backer of the plan voted against the deal. “The Westlands Water District board of directors voted not to provide financial backing for the Delta tunnels,” said Save The California Delta Alliance (STCDA) attorney Michael Brodsky. The Delta tunnels project, sometimes called the Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP) or California WaterFix, would divert water from the Sacramento River near Hood and carry it underground in twin 40-foot-diameter tunnels, 40 miles south to the export pumps near Tracy. STCDA, known for its “Stop the Tunnels” signs and T-shirts seen throughout East County, has been fighting the tunnels project for almost 11 years. Other water districts, including the Metropolitan Water District, have yet to vote on their financial support for the tunnels. So far, no Central Valley
or Southern California water agency that would benefit from new supplies of water from the tunnels has agreed to contribute any funding to pay for the tunnels. The inspector general of the U.S. Department of the Interior concluded earlier this month that $50 million worth of taxpayer funds had been diverted into a slush fund to pay tunnel costs. “The federal slush fund is absolutely consistent with this governor’s modus operandi of law breaking to get his pet tunnels shoved down the throat of California taxpayers,” said Brodsky. The tunnels are slated to cost approximately $17 billion. Official BDCP planning documents state that tunnel construction would take 11 years, cutting a line through the Delta and disrupting boating and recreation in the Delta for over a decade.

Opponents of the Delta tunnels plan got some good news with the announcement that a major financial backer of the project had voted against the deal.

The family-friendly event, situated in the old Doggie Depot location, will benefit the Furry Friends program, which helps owners who are struggling to provide food and necessary items for their pets. Those in need are provided free food, no questions asked, as well as assistance with spay and neutering costs and vaccines. “This is our fourth year of doing this event, and it’s a really nice way for people to come out and support pets in need,” said founder Erin Pina. “We’re just trying to help people keep their pets with them and out of shelters.”

Max is a loving male Chihuahua mix, who was born May 4, 2010, and weighs about 18 pounds. Max came to HALO after his owner became too ill to care for him. He gets along very well with other dogs and cats. He will run to find his toy on command and loves to play tug-of-war with you. Max would enjoy someone who will have time to spend with him, so he’s not left at home all day. He would be great with a retired couple or a stay-at-home parent or with another dog to keep him company. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 925-473-4642.
Meet Maddie Maddie was being shot at when someone rescued her and brought her to H.A.L.O. She is only 7 months old. Maddie is a lap cat who likes getting a lot of attention and is playful and very sweet. Maddie will do great with other cats, but she should not go to home with a senior citizen, because she likes to wrap herself around ankles.

Family dining is on the menu at Wence House by Amy Schrader Correspondent
East County is known for its farms, fresh produce and family-friendly lifestyle. Wence House – California Cuisine, a new restaurant in Brentwood, combines everything people love about the Bay Area and East County into a unique dining experience. “We wanted to create a family environment with highquality, fresh cuisine and enough menu options to satisfy every palette from gourmet cheeseburgers to a fresh panseared sea bass served with pesto gnocchi, bay shrimp garlic cream sauce and grilled vegetables,” said Norma Wence, who owns the restaurant with her husband and executive chef Alfonso Wence. “There is something for everyone.” The restaurant was years in the making, as Alfonso has been a chef for over 25 years and has spent years perfecting his recipes and menu. When the Wences were ready to open their own restaurant, they chose Brentwood, where they have lived since 1998. “We love serving our community and being able to host church and community events,” said Norma. “It has been so fulfilling to see the response and support from our customers as well. They’re happy to see a variety of cuisine in this area.” The menu at Wence House – California Cuisine starts with all fresh ingredients.
Norma and Alfonso Wence are the proprietors of Brentwood’s new familyfriendly restaurant, Wence House – California Cuisine.

“All of our food is always prepared fresh, not frozen,” said Norma. This includes fresh fish, fruits, vegetables and organic chicken. Appetizers include Brussels sprouts served with a chipotle and garlic aioli dipping sauce, fried calamari and scampi with a grilled ciabatta, jumbo prawns and a lemon caper sauce, amongst others.

Celebrating birthdays never gets old C
Celebrating one’s birthday includes a happy birthday song. Grandpa and I butcher the tune when we call each family member or friend and sing our rendition, which leaves the recipient scratching their head or reeling with laughter. Each one is different and customized for the lucky one we call. Most appreciate that it is only once a year but would be very disappointed if that phone didn’t ring for them on their day. According to the 1998 Guinness World Records, “Happy Birthday to You,” more commonly known as simply “Happy Birthday,” is the most recognized song in the English language. It’s base lyrics (obviously before Grandpa and I rearrange it) have been translated into at least 18 languages. It started as “Good Morning to All” used by two sisters, Patty and Mildred Hill. Patty was a primary school principal and Mildred composed the song for the children. The sisters used “Good Morning to All” as a song that young children would
find easy to sing. The combination of melody and lyrics in “Happy Birthday to You” first appeared in print in 1912, but probably existed even earlier, receiving no copyright credits or notices. But in 1935, The Summy Company did just that, giving the credit to Preston Orem and R.R. Forman for the composition. In 1988 Warner Chappell Music purchased the company for $25 million and owned the copyright. Based on the 1935 registration, Warner claimed the U.S. copyright would not expire until 2030, and that unauthorized public performances of the song were illegal unless royalties were paid to Warner. A lot of television programs in the past would stop someone from singing the birthday song on the air in fear of having to pay for that right. I wonder if Marilyn Monroe had to write a check when she sang to President John F. Kennedy! This began to draw a lot of attention, and after several law changes and debates, a federal judge declared that the Warner-Chappell copyright claim was

invalid, ruling the registration applied only to a specific piano arrangement of the song and not to its lyrics and melody. In 2016, Warner-Chappell settled for $14 million, and the court declared “Happy Birthday to You” to be public domain. No matter how you spend your special day, there are three things to remember. First, you begin to celebrate your birthday after one year, so if you are 10, you are really starting your 11th year and if your 99 … well, you get it. Second, receiving birthday wishes and love from others never gets old. In addition, no matter how much embarrassment we feign in restaurants when the entire wait staff and other patrons begin to sing off key, it still makes that day yours and yours alone. Pay no attention to them singing to the other three tables of people who also share your birthday. Just close your eyes, make a wish and blow out the candle on your complimentary ice-cream sundae. Third and not least is June 12. That’s my birthday, so I expect a hearty and robust version of “Happy Birthday to You” from all of you that day! Marla Luckhardt is a Brentwood resident who works with senior care and advocacy groups. Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.
Every parent has pictures of their 1-year-old eating birthday cake. We treasure those pictures as we look at that smiling face covered in chocolate icing and crumbs. The anticipation of our own personal day never seems to get Senior old as we do. It’s orner our special day to receive calls, cards, gifts and visits, and even as adults, we secretly or openly look forward to it every year. In the beginning, we took Marla pride in getting Luckhardt another year under our belt, and I for one recall many years that I was proud to be something and a half. It meant I was growing up and getting closer to being “a big girl.” Although numerical age never bothered me – after all, I survived the big 40, 50 and 60 relatively unscathed – there are some who prefer to keep the year of their birth a big secret. Then the tune changes again, as I’ve met many wonderful seniors in their 90s and over 100 who take enormous pride in telling me their age. It is to them an accomplishment, and I agree. I even had a beautiful lady tell me she was 99 and a half. Some things never change.

Heritage welcomes new leadership “ ... there is a tremendous culture
by Aly Brown Staff Writer
of providing a great learning environment at Heritage.
Heritage High School welcomed a new face into the administration this school year, as Carrie Wells stepped into the role of interim principal. Entering her 21st year in education, Wells earned her undergraduate degree from the University of the Pacific (UOP) in Stockton, where she received a bachelor’s in English with a minor in film studies. She was an NCAA Division 1 athlete in swimming and water polo for UOP. Wells later went on to obtain her teaching credential through Cal State East Bay, along with her administrative credentials through a district consortium program. An Antioch High School graduate, Wells found herself not far from home, teaching first at Deer Valley High School two weeks after college graduation. It was there she also coached varsity swimming and women’s varsity water polo. In 2007, she was hired at Heritage High School and taught all levels of English over the course of seven years. The last two years saw her shift from the classroom into an assistant principal role, supporting then Principal Larry Oshodi. Entering this school year, Wells became the interim principal, as Oshodi accepted another position at the San Mateo Office of Education. When it comes to mentors throughout her career, Wells said she had too many to mention by name. “Throughout my 20 years of education, I have been blessed with strong master teachers and administrators who have helped me grow my capacity for teaching and leadership,” she said. “In addition, I have been fortunate to have strong leadership at my site with current and former assistant principals in addition to the guidance and support of our former principal, Larry Oshodi.

She said one of her main goals is to help Heritage continue on the path of high academic achievement and amazing extracurricular programs that the school has achieved in the short 12 years

it has been open. “I am a realist, and I understand change is never easy, but there is a tremendous culture of providing a great learning environment at Heritage,” she said. “My goal is to continue to foster that environment with staff, students, parents and the local community.” LUHSD Superintendent Eric Volta expressed faith in Heritage’s new interim principal. “Mrs. Wells has been a valued educator and member of the Heritage family for over a decade,” Volta said. “She seemed like the best choice to be interim principal. She is very well thought of by the entire school community. Because of her compassion for student learning, knowledge of the culture and her problem-solving abilities, I believe she’ll do a terrific job.” Wells’ position as interim principal has the potential to become a permanent leadership role at Heritage. Going forward, she will focus on making the transition as smooth as possible in order to best support those she serves. “I am hoping to provide a supportive environment for all stakeholders built on the pride I have for all the amazing things Heritage students, staff and parents bring to our community,” Wells said.

Day tripping on the Delta – Locke AMY SCHRADER
or those looking for a trip back in time, the historic town of Locke, nestled along the east
bank of the Sacramento River, is the perfect destination. Locke, which is often referred to as the last rural Chinese village in the U.S., has a colorful history involving not only the Chinese but other immigrants and residents
who lived alongside them. Getting there from the East Bay will lead you along winding roads through the Delta, through marshy creeks, over oldfashioned drawbridges and through sleepy towns that each have their own nostalgic charm. Once you make your way across the Walnut Grove Bridge and down River Road, you will enter what is known as the Locke Historic District. Locke isn’t just a place to stop for gas
along the Delta. The entire town is a designated National Historic Landmark. According to the National Register of Historic Places, the Locke Historic District is comprised of buildings mostly constructed in 1916, most of which “were erected for the Chungshan Chinese immigrants who settled there after a fire in 1915, which destroyed their homes in Walnut Grove.” The town is virtually preserved as it was in 1916, after George G. Locke made a deal with the Chinese to rent his land to them.
“Most of the buildings remain untouched as if they have sat there for a hundred years without change,” said J’aime Rubio, Delta author and historian. “What draws me in time and time again is the fascinating history of the many different groups of people who lived there over the years.” The real lure of Locke is that you get to experience the history firsthand, as many of see Locke page 17

Something sweet in Lathrop AMY SCHRADER
ith fall’s official arrival, many families head to Lathrop for seasonal activities, including visiting pumpkin farms and
fall festivals, but what they may not realize is there’s a pit stop along the way, guaranteed to be a sweet treat for everyone in the family. Ghirardelli Chocolate Outlet and Ice Cream Shop is conveniently located along Interstate I-5. The Ghirardelli Chocolate Company was founded by Italian chocolatier Domenico Ghirardelli, who, after moving to San Francisco, opened Ghirardely & Girard in 1852. The confectionary shop eventually become the modern Ghirardelli Chocolate Company. The Lathrop location has everything that makes the Ghirardelli Chocolate Company famous. Visitors will find a variety of chocolate assortments, as well as a soda shop featuring Ghirardelli’s premium sundaes made with their delicious creamy ice cream and their famous hot fudge made on site. “The Ghirardelli Chocolate Outlet and Ice Cream Shop is the ideal location to experience Ghirardelli in all five senses,” said Carla Tibbets, Ghirardelli Chocolate Company marketing manager. “The scent of handmade hot fudge made daily fills the air when you enter. You can find an assortment of Ghirardelli products like gourmet chocolates, intense dark bars or baking chocolates, discover new chocolate flavors and gifts or indulge in a world-famous hot-fudge sundae.”
There are also a few perks to visiting the outlet rather than a traditional specialty shop. “Guests will find unique, beautifully packaged gifts that are not available in other mainstream shopping destinations,” said Tibbets. “These gifts are priced up to 50 percent off specialty store prices. Similarly, many fountain items, including the world-famous hot-fudge sundae, are 25 percent off.” Some of Ghirardelli’s sweetest treats are seasonal, including the famous pumpkin-spice items. The Ghirardelli Chocolate Outlet & Ice Cream Shop carries a variety of gift bags featuring the flavor and also offers an exclusive line of pumpkin items. “The pumpkin-spice caramel hot cocoa is rich, creamy and comforting,” said Tibbets. There’s also a pumpkin-spice caramel shake, which is a smooth, cool take on the seasonal favorite. As the weather gets cool, guests can also enjoy sea-salt caramel hot cocoa, classic Ghirardelli hot cocoa, decadent drinking chocolate, a variety of caffè lattes, pumpkin-pie lattes and other delicious warm drinks. One of the outlet’s most popular items is its ice cream. “It is such a treat to go and get a fancy ice-cream sundae or pick out our favorite chocolates,” said Brentwood resident Lisa Richmond. “Our family favorite is the milk chocolate with caramel. We can’t get enough of Ghirardelli’s treats!” From banana splits, caramel sundaes, hot-fudge sundaes, cookie sundaes, brownie sundaes and more, Ghirardelli has an ice-cream treat for everyone. Guests can also shop for holiday gifts at great prices, such as pepper-

The building that is currently the Boarding House Museum was built in 1909 and housed workers of the Southern Pacific Railroad. It was later purchased by the Kuramoto family, which operated it from 1920 to 1942. Exploring the boarding house gives visitors a feel for how migrant workers lived in the early 1900s. Clarence Chu owns three of Locke’s other museums, including the Chinese School Museum, the Dai Loy Gambling House Museum and the Jan Ying Museum, all of which are free to the public. “I opened the museums so people who visit Locke could walk back in time and experience what living in Locke was like,” said Chu. “People can actually see and experience history themselves when they visit.” The museums gained national attention in 2015, when The Travel Channel’s hit show “Ghost Adventures,” filmed an episode where they investigated the Dai Loy Gambling House Museum and other locations in town. Besides museums, visitors can peruse art galleries, eclectic shops and enjoy Locke’s restaurants, including another historic gem, Al’s Place, which dates back to 1915. At Al’s Place, better known as Al the Wops, visitors can enjoy the same delicious style of burgers and steaks that Italian immigrant Al Adami served in the 1930s, when he purchased the restaurant from Lee Bing.

A visit to Locke is not complete without a quick trip to the nearby historic – and some say haunted – Ryde Hotel. “Al’s is my favorite place to eat in Locke,” said Oakley resident Kimie Good. “The staff is always friendly, and they have the best burgers and grilled cheese.” Al’s Place is located at 13943 Main St., in Locke.

World of Wonders sparks kids’ imaginations AMY SCHRADER
rom the moment you walk inside the World of Wonders (WOW) science museum in Lodi, you’ll know that you
aren’t in a traditional museum.

Brentwood resident Grant Doran, 7, learns all about bubbles during a visit to the World of Wonders in Lodi.
For one thing, the exhibits aren’t meant to be observed behind glass windows. Instead, visitors are immersed in hands-on experiences that inspire them to learn about science and encourage them to explore. While the popular museum is modeled on the Exploratorium in San Francisco, WOW in Lodi goes a step further, encouraging children and adults to expand their mindset. “The WOW places an emphasis on incorporating the ethos of the maker movement into its exhibits and programming,” said Nick Gray, WOW education director. “By promoting this do-it-yourself mindset, our visitors feel empowered to take what they’ve learned at the WOW and extend the experience into the rest of their lives.” WOW visitors learn about energy, electricity, magnetism, optics and more in a fun exploratory-style setting. Popular exhibits include the air chair, illumination lab and tinker zone. The illumination lab is a room that has been converted into a dark room, giving visitors the opportunity to explore the science of light. “Like everything at the museum, the ability to touch and play with science concepts that are presented in an accessible way is what makes the WOW experience so powerful,” said Gray.

At the shadow table exhibit, visitors can inventively play with light, shadow, reflection and motion. This is different from the shadow wall, where a large phosphor wall stores light from a flash temporarily freezing visitors’ shadows. Visitors stretch into creative poses before the strobe flashes to produce unique shadows. “A favorite for all of our kids was the shadow wall,” said Brentwood resident Emily Doran. “The kids freeze on the wall, and a picture is taken. Their silhouette remains, and they loved seeing it. They did it again and again and could have spent all day freezing in different positions.” Doran, who has three children, aged 10, 7 and 4, visits the WOW, because it has something to entertain all of her kids. “We’ve been to many children’s museums, but finding one that works for kids of different ages can be difficult,” she said. “The Exploratorium in San Francisco was great for our oldest, but too advanced for our youngest. Our oldest isn’t a fan of the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which delights the younger kids. WOW delivered for all three.” Besides hands-on exhibits, the museum offers birthday parties, educational programming, science events and science camp. Brentwood resident Carmel Knight, 8, attended potions camp at the WOW in June. “The thing I liked the most was being able to spend time with new friends and doing science experiments,” said Carmel. WOW will engage and inspire children and adults alike to explore the world of science. The World of Wonders is located at 2 N. Sacramento St., in Lodi.

Opinion EDITORIALS, LETTERS & COMMENTARY
Thanks to a good Samaritan
Editor: I attended the Heart of Oakley Festival last week. Upon returning to my car, I noticed that I had lost my keys. I was in a panic, and I returned to the festival and informed the staff, vendors, police officers and the patrons. One patron in particular helped in trying to find them. I did not get his name. He informed me that he lives in the Summer Lake Developments and that he was there to watch his granddaughter perform. I would like to give him a heartfelt thanks of gratitude. As I was about to leave and call AAA road service, by the grace of God, I saw a young lady giving them to a police officer. She informed me that someone had given them to her. I thanked her, and I was able to thank the couple that found the keys as well. I must have set them down when I was videotaping the square dancers. I just want to say thanks to everyone and also thanks to the staff at Grocery Outlet. Chan Denise Theus Oakley
Be safe, be courteous, be legal
Editor: A lot of the newer cars have decorative little “zipper lights” for lack of a better name. Some are vertical – some horizontal – and some circle the headlights. It was brought to my attention by a Brentwood police officer that these lights are considered daylight running lights, but not legal as headlights. When you’re driving in a designated daylight safety corridor, such as Vasco Road, Byron Highway or the Delta Highway, to name a few, you are required to turn on headlights as a safety precaution, which turn on your rear taillights. In most cases, the zipper lights do not do that to alert people driving behind you. Signs

Vasco sign a disgrace
SEPTEMBER 29, 2017
Editor: In the Sept. 22 issue of The Brentwood Press, there is an article with an accompanying sign that says, “Warning: Public Safety Emergency Area, Enter at own risk!” This sign will be on Vasco Road right before Camino Diablo and obviously refers to Brentwood and surrounding areas. It asks that you please call Jim Frazier, Senator Steve Glazer and the city council or county supervisor for more information. This sign is being funded by the East County Voters for Equal Protection and backed by the Contra Costa Taxpayers Association. The purpose of the sign is to make the public aware that current fire and emergency medical response services are funded at a dangerously low level. The East County Voters for Equal Protection is supposedly a nonpartisan resident action committee. It received the money through fundraising efforts to place the sign. However, it does not say where the money came from, and I, for one, was never contacted to contribute. If I had been called, I would have been outraged that this group has taken it upon themselves to place this sign without any residential input that I’m aware of. It’s obvious that this sign is meant to shame the people of Brentwood for not approving a tax increase to fund additional fire stations and emergency personnel. It should not be our responsibility to see that these protections are funded totally with our taxpayer dollars. Time and again, the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District has failed to agree on possible ways to increase their operating capital and continue to come after the taxpayers. This sends a terrible message to people coming into our community and implies we don’t care. Please contact these individuals and let them know how angry you are that they would do this. Jim Frazier and Steve Glazer are elected officials. They were elected to represent the taxpayers in our community. Is this how we want to be represented? And who gives them the authority to put up the sign in the first place? Are we as a community allowed to put up a sign of our own blasting them for what they are doing? And
should we put up a sign at every event in this area – Campos, Hannah Nicole and The Streets of Brentwood – telling any visitors they enter at their own risk? That will really be good for business. This is outrageous! Kristin Villyards Brentwood
It takes a village
Editor: My son is a senior at Liberty High School this year. He has been a student in the Brentwood Union School District since kindergarten, and the Liberty Union High School District all four high school years. I wanted to give a huge thank-you to all teachers, aides, custodians, librarians, office staff, counselors and any other school staff. My son is an academic all-star. He has received straight A’s in high school except for one B in PE and an elective home improvement. He has excelled academically, but all the other things that go along with school have been more challenging for him. All of the teachers and additional staff at Garin, Edna Hill and Liberty have no idea how you have impacted my kiddo. I want to say thank you! It takes a village, and I feel so lucky my son had Brentwood schools as his village. When he goes off to college, I know he is prepared, not just academically, but ready for the challenges of life! Words cannot express my gratitude. Andrea Sullivan Brentwood
A homecoming made special
Editor: On behalf of the 2017 to 2018 Liberty High leadership class, I would like to thank the following businesses and individuals for their continual support of Liberty High School, the leadership class and the homecoming traditions thereof. For nearly two decades, Delta Fence Company has gone above and beyond in supporting the activities of Liberty leadership. Delta Fences donates their time and materials, so that we can ensure the safety of the Liberty student body at events, from dances to float building. We are truly grateful for their continual generosity! The leadership program would also like to thank Premier Floral & Event Loft for their generous donation of flowers. The annual “rose ceremony” by which we reveal homecoming king and queen could not have taken place without their generosity. We hope to work with Premier Floral in the future! J. James Bridal in downtown Brentwood donated tuxedos that ensured that the homecoming king and
princes looked sharp for homecoming. The donation of the tuxedos worn by the court at the rally, parade and game really allowed the event to have a classic feel. Many princes remarked about the kindness of the staff and the ease of the entire process. We hope that our local students will frequent this awesome hometown business. Thanks, Julie James and Crystal Morfin! Thank you also to the Brentwood Police Department and Police Explorers for going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the safety of the Brentwood community during the annual homecoming parade. Additionally, we would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for the time and effort on our behalf: Linda Stadlbauer, with Brentwood Parks and Recreation, for guiding us though the parade process; Valerie Austin and the Liberty cafeteria staff, for providing the homecoming court breakfastand waking in the early hours to create a positive experience; the LHS maintenance department, particularly Ronnie Boyce and Tony Ramirez, for their tireless efforts on behalf of Liberty; Bryan Beaver, Kathy Colburn, Sabine Olsen and Sam Rosenberg for serving as float judges; Rita’s and Rubio’s for their gift donation; Turner Judson and Patrick Schneider for serving as our parade announcers within Ohmstead Field; and finally, to Bart Schneider for serving as emcee at the homecoming parade and keeping the crowd entertained! Thanks also to the downtown Brentwood businesses, which allowed Liberty students to decorate the storefronts along the new parade route, spreading Lion pride throughout the city! Thank you to the individuals who volunteered to drive their convertibles in the parade to escort our homecoming court and other distinguished guests! The Liberty homecoming tradition continues because of the support of the Liberty Union High School District employees and Board of Trustees, as well as the administration of Liberty High School – Heather Harper, Mike Burstein, Scott Hansen, Carl Moise and Veronica Polk! Finally, thank you to the community of Brentwood for its continual support of Liberty High School and the traditions that we hold dear. There is nothing better than a Friday night filled with smiling community members, their children and Lion pride! Summer Rodriguez Director of Student Activities Liberty High School

Liberty prevails in exciting homecoming game by Michael Dixon Correspondent
Throughout Liberty’s homecoming game against Tracy, it was apparent the losing team would walk away feeling it should have won. Fortunately for the Lions, they didn’t leave last Friday with that feeling, prevailing over the Bulldogs in a 24-21 nail-biter. The game featured many momentum swings between the two teams, but arguably the biggest came in the fourth quarter. Tracy struck first and was leading 7-0 when a big punt return set them up on Liberty’s 11-yard-line. But the Lions’ defense stood strong and forced a fumble. Liberty then marched 93 yards and tied the game on a 1-yard quarterback sneak from senior Ryan Dutt, completing a 14-point swing. “We bent, but we didn’t break and got a little bit of luck,” coach Ryan Partridge said. “We’ll take it. They’ve been gritty all year. We stayed gritty again. They were tough as nails, and I think that we just made one more play than they did.” The Lions weren’t done after Dutt’s touchdown. Tracy’s next possession was halted when junior Sione Vaki intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown, giving his team a 14-7 lead, only minutes after it was close to going down 14-0. Tracy would tie the game before halftime. In the third quarter, Vaki made his presence felt on offense, when he hauled in a 21-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Jay Butterfield. “I was trying to keep my assignment, do what we do and have faith in my teammates that they would do theirs. That’s what we did, and we executed that,” Vaki said, before turning his attention to his touchdown catch. “In one-on-one situations, I love when the corners play press.” After the Bulldogs evened the score at 21, Butterfield threw an interception, and

Liberty High School senior Jack Hodgson stretches for a few extra inches to gain a first down in the second quarter of the Lions 24-21 victory over the Tracy Bulldogs in Liberty’s homecoming game last Friday it appeared as though Tracy was set up in good field position. But, the interception was negated on a defensive hold. Liberty took advantage of that break and drove down the field, setting up in scoring position as the fourth quarter began. While the Lions were stopped short of a touchdown, Jake Croteau was set up for a field-goal attempt. The junior kicker came through and made the field goal to give his team the lead. Liberty’s defense then stood strong to force two turnovers
on downs, making Croteau’s kick the winning score. “In my pregame warm-up, all I was doing was visualizing,” Croteau said. “Visualizing what would happen in the game, and (what) was going to go on – even before the game started.” The homecoming win gave the Lions an impressive 4-1 mark in early-season play. While the BVAL’s other four teams are on a bye, Liberty will travel across town to take on Heritage (5-0) in the
Brentwood Bowl, Sept. 29, opening the league schedule in a rivalry game. Partridge feels good about where his team as it heads into the tough Bay Valley Athletic League. “The explosive plays from offense come at valuable times,” Partridge said. “That’s going to help us. We just need to be more consistent in the run game and on special teams. And I think defense is going to be ready and we’ll be good to go.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

He was named all-state and second-team all-American his senior year. He was drafted with the 17th pick in the first round by the Cleveland Indians, and he pitched professionally for nine years, earning spots on three all-star teams. Brian White, Cross-Country, Antioch High School, 1991 White, a two-time team MVP, had an amazing senior year, finishing sixth overall at the state cross-country championships, and followed that up with a blistering track season, where he set school records in the 2-mile and 5,000-meter runs. He won the 1,600- and 3,200-meter events at the Bay Valley Athletic League (BVAL) meet and ran the 3,200 meters at the state track meet. He later went on to Diablo Valley College and set a school record in the 10,000 meters. He also ran in the state community college championships in both sports. Willis Ball, Track and Field Coach, Antioch High School Ball coached track and field at Antioch High for more than 25 years and was instrumental in the growth of many athletes. His specialty was the shot put and discus, and his athletes won more than 50 individual league or section titles. Six finished in the top eight at the California State Meet.

the Harvard Varsity Club’s Hall of Fame in 2013. Herb Miles, Wrestling, Antioch High School, 1965 A three-sport star at AHS, Miles excelled on the wrestling mat, winning the Diablo Valley (DVAL) championships, placing second at NCS and going on to wrestle in the Northern California championships his senior season. After playing baseball for two years at DVC, he embarked on a boxing career that earned him a Golden Gloves Championship and an invitation to the Olympic Trials in 1976, where, after two victories, a broken hand ended his career. He was a sparring partner of Heavyweight Champion of the World, George Foreman. Sheree Ogden, Track and Field, Antioch High School, 1987 Regarded as one of the top weight throwers in Antioch High history, this three-time DVAL champion became the first AHS track athlete to qualify for the state meet in both the shot put and discus in 1987, where her seventh-place finish in the discus is the highest ever for a AHS female thrower. Thirty years later, Ogden is still ranked in the top three all-time in both events. Kris Gravelle, All-Around Female Athlete, Antioch High School, 1991 A six-time all-BVAL performer, Gravelle mastered the three sports of volleyball, basketball and softball and capped a fabulous junior season
by being named all-league in all three sports. She then catapulted that success into a three-year varsity volleyball career at UC Davis. There, she earned all-conference first team and honorable mention and was named to the allregion and all-district academic teams, while leading her Aggie teams to three straight conference titles and National Collegiate Athletic Association postseason appearances. Chris Hurd, Football, Deer Valley High School, 2001 The four-year starting quarterback for Deer Valley High earned all-state underclassmen honors as a sophomore and all-BVAL as a senior, in addition to being named honorable mention Best in the West. His career passing yards of 4,804 is the most ever by any quarterback in Antioch history. Hurd earned a full ride scholarship to Washington State University, where he was a member of the 2003 Rose Bowl team.
Chuck Stapleton, Football, Antioch High School, 1948 Stapleton was an all-Contra Costa County Athletic League selection on both offense and defense his junior and senior seasons. This rugged tackle was a foundation for three of legendary coach Jack Danilovich’s teams of the late 40s. He was selected to the all-Northern California team in 1946 and 1947, and he was team MVP his senior season. He later went on to be a very successful local business owner and community leader. Shannon Felix, Wrestling, Antioch High School, 1982 Felix was a three-time DVAL Champion, a three-time place winner at NCS and wrestled at the state meet in 1982. He followed up his stellar prep career by being named a Junior College All-American in 1984 and earned a scholarship to San Jose State University, where he finished third at the Western Athletic Conference Championships in 1985. Tom Rhoads, Track and Field, Antioch High School, 1976 Rhoads won the Diablo Valley Athletic League and NCS Division championships in the discus his senior year, setting the stage for a brilliant fifth-place finish at the state meet in 1976 and was named the Contra Costa Times Field Athlete of the Year.

Ryan Walker, All-Around Male Athlete, Antioch High School, 1991 This amazing, all-around athlete was a three-time BVAL and two-time NCS champion in wrestling and placed fourth at the state meet in 1991. He also was a second-team, all-BVAL performer as a ferocious hitting strong safety in football. He capped his amazing senior year by winning the BVAL Diving Championship and took fifth at NCS. He accepted a wrestling scholarship to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo after turning down football scholarships from Hawaii and UNLV. 1995 Antioch High School, Boys Volleyball Team Coach Lou Panzella’s fabulous team rode a perfect 10-0 league record and three Invitational Tournament Championships into the NCS playoffs, where they ran through to the title match versus top-seeded College Park. The mighty Panthers were too tough that day and downed the Falcons to earn its first NCS Banner. The team was led by Larry Lentz II, Lawrence Lentz III, Joe Peck, Matt Dunn and Jon Tiernan. The Class of 2017 will be enshrined Oct. 7, at the induction gala, at 6 p.m., at the Lone Tree Golf and Event Center.

SEPTEMBER 29, 2017
The anatomy of a split
The Heritage High School volleyball program will host its 2017 fall volleyball clinic from Oct. 2 to 5, at Heritage High School. The clinic, open to all third- through eighth-grade children, will run from 9 a.m. to noon, daily. The clinic will focus on volleyball skill and technique development. The cost is $100. For more information or to sign up, email Heritage coach Janet Hannigan at Hannigan@luhsd.net.
These past couple of weeks, my mailbox has been stuffed with questions and frustrations about the epidemic number of large splits at our recently installed lanes in town; more specifically, the 7-10s. A 7-10 split is arguably the rarest of the splits and inarguKegler’s ably has the highest orner degree of difficulty for conversion. In short, if you leave one it’s virtually an open frame. I’ll try to address both the how and why of the 7-10 split. For a rightDuane hander, the 7-10 is Wilson simply a shot that leaves the 10 alone (7 for a left-hander), with the opposite corner remaining as well. An entry angle either too steep or too shallow results in the 3 pin (2 for a lefty), going either right or left of the 6 pin (4 for a lefty). In a typical strike, your ball only contacts the 1, 3, 5, 8 and 9 pins (1, 2, 5, 8 and 9 for a southpaw) on its way to the pit. All other pins are downed by the action of those pins. Your ball has quite a task from a physics standpoint. It must transfer all of the energy from its delivery to the pins – more than 35 pounds of static mass. When a 15-pound ball contacts five pins, there’s not a great deal of kinetic energy left. Each pin that absords that initial energy, in turn, delivers it to another pin while it continues to give up that initial energy. The 7 pin (10 for left-handers) is the last pin to fall. When lanes are installed, they have many parameters for adjustment with allowable tolerances in order to satisfy the U.S. Bowling Congress for certification and sanctioned play. One of these adjust-

Republic Services and the City of Antioch are partnering to promote the Reuse Roundup to protect the environment and preserve resources through reuse.
ments with an allowable tolerance is the pin deck; this is the separate area from the lane on which the pins stand. The deck can be completely level from side to side and front to back, or up 180 thousandths of an inch on either of those planes. These adjustments allow for the center of gravity of the pins to “tilt” forward, backward or to either side, resulting in more ease or difficulty in falling over and the direction they fall or react from impact. In general, the closer those decks are to 180 thousandths, the easier they fall and the higher the score. The current setting for certification at our local center is between 60 and 80 thousandths, relatively low, but well within specification range. This said, how do we mitigate this condition and generate more carry? The issue is all getting more energy into the shot. Or better said, it’s about the ball. Simple physics says we must either increase the weight of the ball with a given velocity or increase the velocity if the ball weight (mass) remains constant. Ball weight is not the most practical solution. It’s expensive and, depending on your age and physique, not appropriate. Increasing ball weight also has the effect of decreasing ball speed, which is counterproductive to our end goal. I recommend increasing your ball speed to increase energy at the pins, and you do this with your footwork. Move back on the approach in small increments of 4 to 6 inches and observe your results, adjusting as needed. It’s a change you have to make to avoid the dreaded 7-10 split. Bowl well, and good luck!

TO DO BUSINESS IN THIS STATE: All right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by the trustee in the hereinafter described property under and pursuant to a Deed of Trust described as: More fully described in said Deed of Trust. Street Address or other common designation of real property: 4957 Spur Way, Antioch, CA 94531-8199 A.P.N.: 053-490-022 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address or other common designation, if any, shown above. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by the Deed of Trust with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, under the terms of said Deed of Trust, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $391,159.58. Note: Because the Beneficiary reserves the right to bid less than the total debt owed, it is possible that at the time of the sale the opening bid may be less than the total debt. 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. The beneficiary of the Deed of Trust has executed and delivered to the undersigned a written request to commence foreclosure, and the undersigned caused a Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE OF TRUSTEE’S SALE 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 this 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 (866)-9608299 or visit this Internet Web site http:// www.altisource.com/MortgageServices/ DefaultManagement/TrusteeServices. aspx using the file number assigned to this case 2017-00113-CA. 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.

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-16-748935-BF . 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 Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. 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 sale is set aside for any reason, including if the Trustee is unable to convey title, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return o f the monies paid to the Trustee. This shall be the Purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy. The purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Trustor, the Trustee, the Beneficiary, the Beneficiary’s Agent, or the Beneficiary’s Attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise
the note holders right’s against the real property only. QUALITY MAY BE CONSIDERED A DEBT COLLECTOR ATTEMPTING TO COLLECT A DEBT AND ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE.

The book focuses on being sympathetic and understanding of others who are different. McBride believed the Kindness Rocks project was a good way to bring that message home. The students responded to the project enthusiastically and spent the next two weeks painting inspirational messages on approximately 60 rocks. The rocks were then placed throughout the communities
of Discovery Bay, Brentwood and Oakley. Once a rock is found, the new owner can move it to a new location or, if they wish, keep it and replace it with a new rock. Thousands of these groups have been formed across the country since its inception in 2015, each creating a unique hashtag in order to track where a rock was located and the story it inspired. McBride’s students chose the #KindnessRocksPiratesDB4 as a way to monitor their rock’s movements. “I am proud of how my students embraced the idea of inclusiveness – they are really excited about the project, and the rocks are gorgeous,” said McBride. For Sky Oliva, a student in McBride’s class, the lesson was a powerful one. “There could be kids around us who feel bad,” said Sky. “And we can remind them of the good.” For more information, visit www. thekindnessrocksproject.com.

we thought it would be great to do things with kids,” Mulkey said. In-Shape representatives also wanted the community to know an In-Shape membership is not required to help support the cause. Anyone who would like to participate can come into the club on a guest pass and pay the same registration fees, which are $10 per child or $25 for a family with unlimited children.

“In-Shape Fights Cancer is an opportunity to make a difference at a local level in something that affects us all,” said Rich Nelsen, CEO In-Shape Health Clubs. “The Oct. 8 event will be a fun way for Antioch families to get involved and importantly, to show that no matter your age, everyone can make a difference. Plus, I can’t imagine a better way to spend a Sunday morning than getting active and outside with your loved ones, all while raising money for the incred-

“Our vision is to have a place where elders can live in a safe environment and parents can come and rent a soccer field and hold tournaments and evening practices and rent out the gym for basketball practices and the hall for weddings and birthdays,” said Maiwand, who indicated that the group will fundraise to carry out the effort. They also plan to use income from the senior housing facility, slated to be built first, to partially bankroll other aspects of the plan. Maiwand said the organization has received positive feedback on the project during face-to-face discussions, but encountered some negative comments when reading online posts on the project, which misidentified it out of ignorance. The plan, Maiwand said, is to build a community-oriented center for the benefit of everyone, as evidenced by its close proximity to the eBART station and the central location to various cities, including Brentwood, Concord, Tracy and Livermore. “Unfortunately, in these times, the minute you mention ‘Islam’ or ‘mosque,’ it is portrayed negatively,” Maiwand said. “But we have been part of this community for over 20 years, and we are continuing to be part of this community. Our kids go to school in this community. We grew up in this community.”
Opinions about the proposed effort, expressed on the city’s Facebook page, were mixed. “This could be a really good thing for our city, if we are able to up the fire and police services offered, since our city will have more residents,” said Stephanie Violet Clark. Commenter Liz Medina, however, wasn’t as optimistic. “The City of Oakley needs to slow all this new development down,” she said. “We first need to take care of the citizens that are already here, solve the problems with fire service for a larger city, get better roads to handle new traffic,” she said. A city Facebook post acknowledged the chatter surrounding the project, but warns residents who email city councilmembers on the matter not to expect a response until the item is put on the council agenda. “While emails regarding the proposal may be sent to the city staff and city council now, be advised that it is inappropriate and unfair for the staff and council to comment on a pending application (and doing so may lead to legal challenges),” the statement read. “This application will be treated as any other, and no decision can or will be based on the applicants’ race, ethnicity, gender, religion or sexual preference or on any other arbitrary criteria.” For a complete look at the group’s plans, visit http://bit.ly/2jZOrH7.
ible services and care St. Jude provides.” In addition, all throughout October the fitness company will work to raise $100,000 for the medical research hospital, which makes sure no family ever sees a bill from St. Jude for treatment of their child. Ways the community can participate are by buying a paper kettlebell for $2, $5 or $10; taking a Weekend Warrior class for $10; purchasing a T-shirt or tank for $17.99; walking for the Making Strides event; refer-
