City could renew blight fight by Justin Lafferty

The lowdown on spiffing up

Staff Writer After roughly two years without code enforcement, Antioch might soon hire an officer to help address the city’s blight issue. Antioch’s City Council will make a final decision on Oct. 25, but discussion at Tuesday night’s meeting seemed to be on track with what many residents have been clamoring for. If approved at next month’s meeting, the city will use money from the solid waste fund ($40,000), the abandoned vehicle fund ($80,000) and $51,000 in Community Development block grants (CDBG) to pay for a code enforcement officer. The city could also use a portion of grant money that usually goes toward recreation to help pay for code enforcement. However, Deputy Director of Community Development Ryan Graham pointed out that the CDBG money can only be used in low-income areas of Antioch. Because of this stipulation, Antioch officials are planning to limit code enforcement activities to the northwest sector of the city at the outset.

Antioch could soon hire a code-enforcement officer to handle blight such as this at a housing complex on East Sixth Street, seen earlier this year. “I think we need to start this sooner rather than later,” Mayor Jim Davis said. Antioch leaders can fill the position inhouse, hire a private code enforcement firm, or contract services with the county – a notion at which Councilman Brian Kalinowski bristled

when he heard the $100 per hour price tag for salary and benefits that would come with that third option. The council decided that the best option see Blight page 22A

Savings lead to Bypass progress by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer The effort to clear congestion on the Highway 4 Bypass got a boost recently, thanks to some savings on another highway project. The Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) received $25 million from the state earlier this year to convert the Sand Creek Road intersection to an entrance/ exit-ramp interchange, a $33 million project. The officials were banking on savings on a segment of the Highway 4 widening project to cover the remaining cost, a notion that looks promising. According to CCTA Engineering Manager Hisham Noeimi, contractor CC Myers of

Rancho Cordova put in a bid of $42,380,000 to work on the Contra Loma Boulevard interchange in Antioch – roughly $8.5 million less than expected. If Caltrans OKs the bid, the savings from that project will go toward improving the meeting of Sand Creek Road and the Bypass. “It’s nice to have positives in East County for transportation solutions,” said Brian Kalinowski, chairman of regional transportation board TRANSPLAN. “I think in about three or four years, when all these projects are done, people are going to really appreciate the hard work. It’s hard work that people have done for a decade to make these things come to fruition.”

A construction worker digs along Somersville Road as part of the Highway 4 widening project. Savings from the project will likely help pay for improvements on the Bypass intersection at Sand Creek Road in Brentwood. Noeimi noted that essentially, CCTA can start planning two projects – the Sand Creek Road interchange and the widening of the Bypass from Laurel Road to the interchange. He estimated that it would take Caltrans a couple months to formally award the

Wounded warrior returns to Oakley by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

As he stood outside a construction trailer in Afghanistan, Petty Officer 1st Class Chris Marquart knew exactly what he was hearing. “It was that unforgettable ‘whooossssh’ a rocket makes,” he said. “It was right at eye level, coming straight at me. I saw the smoke, heard the bang, and stuff started flying all over.” A member of Navy Construction Battalion 18, a Reserve unit out of Ft. Lewis, Wash., the Oakley resident was starting his second tour in the war zone in August of 2010 when the rocket attack occurred. His unit, commonly referred to as “Seabees,” was part of a joint task force assigned to oversee $250 million in construction projects. Marquart made it unscathed through his first tour in 2008-09, but not his second. As the 107mm rocket approached, he had enough time only to turn around and put his back to the incoming missile. It hit the ground 10 feet from him, showering him with shrapnel and hurling a chunk of hot steel into his back, just two inches from his spine. “I thought I’d been hit by a rock or something,” he recalled during an interview last weekend at his home. “There’s a blank spot (in his memory) after that. I remember waking up on the floor inside the trailer, but I don’t know how I got there.”

Petty Officer 1st Class Chris Marquart and his wife, Lynne, stand in the couples’ Oakley living room near a wall covered with Chris’ commendations. In his had is the Purple Heart he received after being wounded in a rocket attack in Afghanistan. He reached up to check his shoulder, and his hand came away crimson with blood. Treated by a series of coalition medics, doctors and nurses – and dosed up with morphine – Marquart was told to

call his wife, Lynne, to tell her he’d been wounded. The result was “my most bittersweet day,” he said. The call came in to Oakley, waking Lynne up at about 1:30 a.m. “The only

thing I heard was ‘I got hit,’” said Lynne. Wanting to cheer her husband as best she could, she passed along some great news: “We’re pregnant,” she told him. Unable to do anything else for her injured spouse, Lynne began stuffing yet another care package to send him, this time with something special from their 7year-old-son, Ryan. “He snuck a Spiderman Band-Aid in there,” said Chris. “ I definitely remember getting that.” Two weeks later, however, Lynne suffered a miscarriage, adding to the stress on the entire family. A two-week visit home wasn’t enough, and after returning to Afghanistan to resume his mission, his wound and his wife’s condition proved too much of a distraction, and Chris was ordered home a few months later. But he didn’t tell Lynne. Instead, he worked his way all the way to his front door without her knowledge, and surprised the family into stunned silence. “It took me a few minutes to realize he was standing there,” Lynne said. “My brain was saying, “He’s in Afghanistan, not standing at our front door.’ It was a great surprise.” Marquart has almost fully recovered from the physical part of his injury, but he’s easily startled by loud noises, and doesn’t like crowded places. He’s also had see Wounded page 22A

The results of an online survey asking Discovery Bay residents what they’d like to see in a community center have been tallied. And while the number of respondents was lower than anticipated, committee members still believe the exercise was worthwhile. “I think we were all hoping for a better response,” said Community Center Advisory Committee member Sean O’Toole, who presented the findings at the Sept. 21 CSD meeting. “But we did receive a lot of comments and we’re still collecting input.” Of the 412 members of the community who logged onto the survey, 359 completed it, said O’Toole. The results showed that 92.2 percent of respondents are full-time residents between the ages of 40 and 65; 81 percent are married and 43 percent have children living at home, the majority being teenagers. “One of the first questions we asked about was location,” said O’Toole. “And the number-one spot was at the corner of Willow Lake and Discovery Bay Boulevard; that got the most positive feedback.” Regarding activities residents would be interested in seeing in a community center, fitness, gardening and painting classes rated favorably, as did cooking classes. Respon-

dents also rated a kitchen and meeting rooms as important in a community center. Posted online in July, the survey was designed to solicit residents’ opinions on a community center, including location, activities, classes and funding options. CSD Director Mark Simon said he logged on and took the survey, but because a site has yet to be determined, he felt the survey was not as effective as it could have been. “To me, there is nothing tangible in that survey,” said Simon. “I think for me, not having a real location … I think what’s happened is that you have a nice survey but it’s very general and for me as a homeowner I had no inspiration to take it all.” O’Toole agreed, but added that he believed the survey is beneficial. “It’s a project plan,” said O’Toole. “And before we can get people excited about it, we have to have a vision of what it would look like … At least when we do go out and float a plan, we’ll have a better chance of not completely missing the mark. And that was really the goal of the survey.” The survey will remain online for a few more weeks, and residents can take the survey by logging onto www.discoverybaysurvey.com.

Festival of Trees coming to town by Ruth Roberts

Brentwood’s inaugural Festival of Trees will feature dozens of holiday trees decorated by local individuals, businesses and organizations. Proceeds will benefit Brentwood nonprofit and service organizations.

Staff Writer Twenty-five years ago, neighbors Mary Black and Nancy Torres attended a holiday event called the Festival of Trees and were so entranced, they vowed to one day bring that same type of sparkling affair to Brentwood. “We said that when we retired, we were going to do something like that,” said Black. “And over the years, whenever we would have wine in the glasses we got at the event, we would remind ourselves that we really needed to do this.” So when Black retired from the Brentwood Union School District last year, Torres knocked on her door and said the time had finally come. “We ran out of excuses, so here we are,” laughed Torres. On Dec. 2, the Festival of Trees will make its debut at the Shadow Lakes Event Center in Brentwood, running three days and highlighting four special events: the Gala Dinner and Silent Auction, Teddy Bear Breakfast, Sparkling Wines and Twinkling Trees open house and Brunch Among the Trees. Net proceeds from the events will benefit local nonprofit and service organizations. “The idea is to target the smaller nonprofits out here locally and give people a wonderful, beautiful place to come and visit during the holidays,” said Torres. “There’s nothing out here like this. We’re hoping it’ll be a great success.” The Festival of Trees will feature a va-

riety of trees in various sizes and themes, purchased and decorated by local individuals, organizations and businesses according to their own themes. Placed first on display, they’ll later be made available for purchase through a silent auction. Holiday wreaths, centerpieces and mantelpiece items will also be available for purchase. And throughout the three days, there will be viewing hours when the public can enjoy the trees and holiday items, plus live entertainment, food and refreshments. “This is our inaugural event, so we’re still feeling our way,” said Torres. “But we’re really excited and feel very energized by people who are already supporting us and want to come out and help.” This year’s beneficiaries of the Festival of Trees will be 80Volts, Friends of the Brentwood Library, Brentwood Regional Community Chest, Brentwood Art Society, Brent-

wood Union School District, East Contra Costa County Historical Society, Friends of Marsh Creek, John Marsh Historical Trust, Kaleidoscope, Brentwood Kiwanis, Brentwood Rotary and Soroptimist of the Delta. The Gala Dinner and Auction will be held Friday, Dec. 2. The Teddy Bear Breakfast and Sparkling Wines and Twinkling Lights events are slated for Saturday, Dec. 3, and the Brunch Among the Trees will be held Sunday, Dec 4. Tree viewing hours are scheduled for Dec. 2 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Dec. 3 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Dec. 4 from noon to 6 p.m. Tickets for the Festival of Trees events and tree viewings go on sale Nov. 1.

Benefit garage sale nets thousands Friends and neighbors are beaming after a hugely successful effort to raise money to help a Brentwood mother of three undergoing cancer treatment. “We were able to raise a little over $2,200 from the garage sale itself and received $1,300 in cash donations from the community. How amazing is that?” said organizer Shiela Riche. The donations will be used to pay for preschool for the daughters of Karla Price, 38, whose three girls are all under 6. “We were able to raise all the money for the girls’ preschool tuition and have quite a bit left over to apply toward Kar-

la’s medical bills,” said Riche. “What a tremendous blessing!” Riche said that between 400 and 500 people stopped by the sale on Sept. 17. In addition to “a garage and a half ” of material donations from the community, the largess included a $1,000 donation from one person, and another who paid $90 for a dozen brownies at a bake sale held at the event. “We are in awe of the overwhelming support that our community has shown and are so thankful to live among some of the most caring people around,” she said. “God bless them!”

MERS IS LEGIT?

And the winner is … Penny the Pup is East County’s cutest pet, according to Press readers who voted in the Press’ inaugural Facebook contest this month. Since 107 pets were nominated, Press readers had a difficult decision to make. More than 1,400 votes were cast. Penny the Pup, submitted by Eric Pane, received 152 votes. Honorable mentions,

If you haven’t heard of MERS before, I don’t have room to fully explain it here (do an Internet search for more info). The short version is that many lenders used MERS to save time and money to record and sell mortgages via an electronic database rather than record the physical documents with the local county recorder’s offices. I’ve heard reports that MERS has recorded more than HALF of all mortgages in the US since 1997. There have been big questions about the legality of how MERS records mortgages and whether lenders can foreclose because of these questions. There have been many lawsuits on this issue, and as of yet, many of the cases were dismissed on technicalities, or the decisions didn’t provide a clear legal precedent on the matter. However, there was a recent case that may be the one that finally does it. I’ll spare you the details of the case, but it definitely puts some wind in the sales of the lenders that are foreclosing on properties where MERS was involved by saying that MERS is legitimate and isn’t a reason to stop or reverse a foreclosure. If this case holds, it may reduce one arrow from the quiver of the attorneys that are trying to either fight or reverse foreclosures

on behalf of their clients. However, before I could even get this article out in the paper, MERS was hit with another lawsuit in Texas on 9/21. This one takes a different tact than the other suits that question the legitimacy of MERS. This one is filed on behalf of the local counties that were denied the revenue from the recording of documents because of MERS. With MERS, the lenders didn’t have to record new documents each time the loan was sold. When you add up all the loans, and how many times they were sold, the damages could be over $1 Billion, just for the Dallas lawsuit. If they win, you can bet other counties across the US will pile on and the losses could be huge. If this happens, it won’t be so much a victory for homeowners, because it doesn’t change whether lenders can foreclose. It will be good news for cash-strapped counties, but it could also be a huge financial hit to many banks that are already struggling to stay solvent.

Cruise to benefit Friends

Driven to help

Friends of Marsh Creek Watershed hosts a fundraiser aboard the Island Serenade on Saturday, Oct. 1. Tickets are $60. Delta Discovery Cruises, based in Pittsburg, is teaming with the Friends for a relaxing evening on the water. Proceeds benefit Freedom High School’s FRESHH Club, an environmental stewardship organization, and Friends of Marsh Creek Watershed activities such as the creek cleanup. Nearly 500 volunteers came out to clean up about 18 miles of local waterways, and as a result, more than four tons of trash were removed from the creek, trails and local parks.

“Friends of Marsh Creek Watershed works on a very small budget and is making an effort to continue our great projects by taking on various fundraising efforts,” said Executive Director Diane Burgis. The sunset dinner cruise will feature appetizers, samplings of award-winning wines from Bloomfield Vineyards and entertainment provided by Cadence Bay Studios. The cruise runs from 5 to 8 p.m.; boarding begins at 4:30. Tickets may be purchased through the Delta Discovery Cruises website, www. deltadiscoverycruises.com. For more information, call Burgis at 925-325-2908.

Since the PTSA uses the event as a fundraiser for scholarships, it’s a win-win for everyone. “With the economy being what it has been, the Antioch High School PTSA wanted to find a way to help within the community,” said PTSA President Cindy Chatham. “The idea of selling formal dresses at reduced prices seemed like a way we could help local high school girls defray the costs associated with Winter

Ball and proms, and hopefully help them be able to attend these events.” The dress sale, now in its fourth year, has been a big hit with students from all over East County. Chatham is hoping for another successful sale, with more than 200 dresses on hand and more still coming. Donations may be brought to the Antioch High School Career Center Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. A pickup service is also available for those unable to drop off dresses and accessories during school hours. “The girls are always surprised at how many dresses we have available,” Chatham said. “We also hold drawings throughout the event for salon or floral services. We’re currently looking for donations of event-appropriate prizes. We’re a nonprofit group and can provide a taxdeductible receipt for any donations of clothing or merchandise.” The Belle of the Ball event is open to all East County high school students. No student identification is required. Only cash will be accepted during the sale. Volunteers are also needed to work the event.

Oakley to help students Read to Grow by Samie Hartley Staff Writer “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.” In 1978, Dr. Seuss included this line in his book “I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!” In the story, his famed Cat in the Hat explains the joys of reading as well as the importance of reading as a way to gain knowledge. His words are more than 30 years old, but the meaning is just as relevant, and the Oakley Union Elementary School District (OUESD) is reaching out to families to share a similar message that stresses the importance of reading. On Saturday, Oct. 1 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., the OUESD will host a Leer Para Crecer (“Read to Grow”) workshop for families with students in preschool through fifth grade. The workshop is meant to highlight the many positive outcomes that result from sharing a story, and encourage families to read with their children at home. “Our goal is to share with parents the importance of early literacy skills and how they aid in the long-term success of children as readers and proficient students,” said OUESD Early Literacy Coach Traci Tovani. “We want to provide parents tangible, cost-effective ways to support their children in the area of literacy regardless of their home language.” The workshop is the idea of Arthur Fernandez, who joined the school board in March. He wanted to find a way to reach out to the Latino families in Oakley to encourage them to promote reading in the home – a key ingredient in academic success. As soon as Fernandez joined the board, he began looking for ways to create a literacy intervention program, so he established the Leer Para Crecer committee. The committee sought funding from area nonprofits, but when the grants fell through, Oakleybased organizations jumped in to help. The committee received grants from the Friends of Oakley and the City of Oakley program You, Me, We = Oakley, a new community program designed to help disperse valuable community information to Spanish-speaking residents. The funding enabled the committee to purchase literacy kits, including flash cards, games and reading materials for families to take home. “Families will walk away with strategies for mastering sight words, letter names and sounds,” Tovani said. “Each kit will also include ideas for how to read with and to your child, as well as engaging questions parents can ask after they’ve listened to their child read aloud.” While the program targets the city’s Latino families, the importance of reading in any home should make the workshop attractive to all Oakley families. Fernandez said he’s hoping to draw at least 100 families to the event, which will take place at Gerhinger Elementary School, 100 Simoni Ranch Road. The event will also include book giveaways, information on obtaining library cards, and entertainment provided by local author Art Miramontes, who will

“ What we hope to accomplish is that all students who participate will enter school prepared to read and ready to learn.

OUESD Trustee Arthur Fernandez read his story “There’s an Elephant in My Bathtub!” Aside from helping to plan the event, Fernandez also plans to be a part of the entertainment. “I will be performing Teatro, which is Hispanic theater,” Fernandez said. “The Teatro will include two short skits. The first

is called ‘La India meets La Migra,’ which is a comedy that deals with immigration. The second is called ‘Don Abuelito,’ which deals with a grandfather’s interaction with his granddaughter and her obsession with her technical gadgets. We will also have a youth ballet folklorico group performing traditional Mexican dances. The group is

under the direction of Elisa Duarte, who is also a committee member.” Local restaurants Los Charros, Chapala Restaurant, La Fuente, El Camino, Casa Del Palmar, and Rositas will work together to provide a free, traditional Mexican lunch for all participants. “What we hope to accomplish is that all students who participate will enter school prepared to read and ready to learn,” Fernandez said. “We may not see the results immediately, but they will definitely pay off in the future.” Registration for the event is free.

Firefighting resident leaves mark on neighborhood by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer Residents of a Brentwood neighborhood held a barbecue last weekend to thank a multi-tasking neighbor with an alert son who snuffed out a fire that threatened a pair of houses. Rico Tolentino said that on the morning of Sept. 11, he and his 9-year-old son, Sebastian, had been watching TV coverage of the 9/11 observances, replete with video images of columns of black smoke rising from the World Trade Center. Later, as the family piled into the car for a shopping trip, Sebastian spotted more smoke, this time from a neighbor’s side yard on Diamond Springs Lane. “Hey Dad, look at that!” Rico recalled his son saying as he pointed to the growing smoke cloud a couple of houses away. As his wife, Toni, raced for a phone to report the fire, Rico dashed to the scene to find a trash can and fence between two houses ablaze. Grabbing a nearby garden hose, the San Ramon mail carrier began streaming water on the burning fence, which collapsed against one of the houses. He hosed down the stucco wall as well as the fence, then saw that flames were also licking a gas meter and a door on the other house. He alternately shot them with water as well, along with the fence and stucco wall. Kicking in the smoldering fence gate, Rico discovered a pit bull in the backyard barking at him from the other side of the fire. “I didn’t want him to come near the fire,” said Rico, “so I kept squirting him with the

Residents of Diamond Springs Lane held a barbecue last weekend to thank Rico Tolentino for dousing a fire in the neighborhood on Sept. 11. The blaze had been spotted by his son, Sebastian, who is holding the plaque with his father. water, too.” Wearing only flip-flop sandals, Rico soon discovered that a 5-gallon can of paint had melted, spilling its contents onto the sidewalk and oozing over his feet. While he was alternately wetting down the fence, the wall, the door, the gas meter, the dog and his increasingly warm toes, the fire department arrived.

“They said, ‘You did most of the work for us!’” said Rico. Unfortunately for him, they also noticed Rico was coughing a lot, and insisted he make a trip to the hospital to be checked for smoke inhalation. He was released a couple hours later. It’s not the first time Rico has been in the right place at the right time. A couple of years

ago, a similar thing occurred while he was on his route in Dublin. He’s also assisted accident victims and helped pull a suicidal man from a highway overpass. “Every time I go outside, it seems like things happen,” he said, adding that he’s glad to have been able to do the right thing in each instance. “I’m worried that some day I might fail.” He didn’t fail his current neighbors – that’s for sure. “I’m thankful to him for saving my house, but I feel bad for him because of him going to the hospital,” said Oscar Carillo, against whose house the burning fence had fallen. His wife, Angie, recently started a Neighborhood Watch group in the area, and it was through the group’s phone tree that Oscar, who wasn’t at home at the time, was notified of the fire within 15 minutes of its discovery. It’s the type of thing Neighborhood Watch groups do well, Angie said, adding that it also helped get the word out about last weekend’s barbecue. “I think it’s great, what Rico did,” Angie said at the event. “If it wasn’t for him, it could have been the whole neighborhood (that burned).” Instead, the effects of the fire (which firefighters said was caused by hot ashes that had been dumped in a trash cart) were limited to some scorched walls, burned fencing, a destroyed trash cart and damaged gas meter – and a scattering of latex footprints in the shape of flip-flops on the street in front of the house.

Dawson should resign from CSD board As calls to step down from his seat on the CSD board continue from fellow directors and sentiment grows for a recall election if he doesn’t, it’s time for Vice President Brian Dawson to resign. In the days following his arrest on charges of spousal abuse and child endangerment resulting from an altercation with DITORIAL his wife on Aug. 27, Dawson said he was sorry for the actions that left her bruised and led to a pair of charges against him. Since then, however, he has grown defiant, insisting that he is back on the medications for bipolar disorder from which he suffers and steadfastly refusing to give up the four-year term to which he was elected last year. The August incident is not the first time Dawson has shown the potential for violence. He’s had at least two angry

E

confrontations that nearly led to blows and had to be broken up by bystanders following board meetings. He also passed a note to a fellow board member during a meeting, threatening to “kick your ass” over a policy disagreement. And he has accused directors Mark Simon and Ray Tetreault of political motivation in calling for his resignation, vowing that their comments meant he would not be leaving. Then, given an opportunity to address the issue at last week’s CSD meeting, Dawson said nothing. His failure to address the issue with his colleagues and before the public seem to indicate his intention might be to ignore the controversy until it goes away. But given Discovery Bay’s history of fractious politics, as well as the increasing public awareness and concern over the problem of domestic violence, this problem won’t be going away any time soon. And while Dawson insists that his per-

Crosswalk not for cars

Editor: I am a Brentwood Park resident and unfortunately my house borders the walking path that surrounds my subdivision. We are original owners and have loved living in Brentwood. However, we have been long awaiting our finished and functional walking path we were promised when we bought the house. Ten years later, it still has not been done. I cross over into Oakley to have a decent path and view while exercising. All four of my children, three of whom are too old to enjoy it now, have never been able to ride their bikes on the path because of stickers and thorns that pop their tires. Right across the path, Oakley has nice trees, green grass, flowering bushes and nice ground cover bordering its subdivision. We have some trees, dirt, thorns and weeds. My neighbors and I continue to hope this will be the year the City Parks Department will remember us. Laura Gee Brentwood

Editor: I can’t believe the audacity of some people sometimes. And when you need an officer, sometimes one isn’t around. For example, I was walking in front of Liberty High School the other day with my daughter – she isn’t even in preschool yet – and was ready to cross the street over to the Adult Education Center when before my eyes, the eyes of several people and fellow drivers, an older woman decided that she was going to make an illegal turn using the cross walk that connects from the corner where Birthright is to Liberty High School. And before you say “maybe she didn’t know,” that was why the dividers were put in! Even the driver in the back was visibly upset, so much so that she honked – and with good reason. To make matters worse, this woman decided to wait in the crosswalk while ongoing traffic passed. I was appalled. This all took about five to 10 minutes. But what stunned me most was: where were the police? I am a former Liberty HS student and remember that there was always an officer out on campus. Where was he that day? Can you imagine if this selfish woman had done this while someone was preparing to cross? I just can’t believe that there are people selfish enough to use something for pedestrians as their own personal lane. And for the woman who did this, if you are reading this: shame on you! And people have the nerve to complain about teen drivers. Well shame on you, and be glad I didn’t have a pen or paper with me, or else I would have gotten your license plate number and made sure you learned your lesson. Those dividers were built to protect pedestrians from people like you, who are too much in a rush to take other people’s safety into consideration. And to the woman driving behind this

sonal situation will not impede the district from conducting business, that has already proven not to be the case. Directors at last week’s meeting uttered not a single word about the incident, and instead attempted to conduct business as usual while ignoring the proverbial elephant in the room. With the prospect of continued paralysis on the board, plus the uncertainty concerning his earlier actions and his current state of mind, the right thing for Dawson to do is step away from the board. Continued defiance and a possibly ugly recall election that could cost the CSD thousands of dollars would have a devastating affect on the board and the community. Before his personal life is drawn further into the maw of public conjecture, Dawson should do the right thing for his community, himself and his family, and resign immediately.

Skipolini’s, not Walmart Editor: As a 10-year resident of Brentwood with four young kids and a love for this community and its small-town atmosphere, I have one question: Skipolini’s Pizza – a family-owned pizza parlor with a great atmosphere – was not allowed in our town because it serves alcohol and wasn’t conducive to a small-town family environment, yet we are considering allowing a Walmart? It might be time to relocate … Lisah Poore Brentwood

The best that money can buy Editor: If Walmart is so bad, how come so many cities and towns allow Walmart to locate there? The answer is pretty obvious. Walmart has the best politicians that money can buy. Walmart has a horde of lawyers and lobbyists that spread megabucks all over the local power structure until Walmart gets what it wants. Witness the recent vote in Antioch regarding the expansion of Walmart on Lone Tree Way. In the community, the anti expansion outnumbered the pro expansion by about 10-1. But lo and behold, the vote to approve expansion went 4 to 1 in favor of expansion. Who says you can’t buy a vote when you have huge money and no morals? We need to put every elected and appointed official in Brentwood on notice: Don’t sell us out! Vote to allow Walmart in

Brentwood and you will find yourself looking for work come next election. Not only do Walmart’s lawyers and lobbyists pass out mega-bucks. These same lawyers and lobbyists also teach local officials what to say to make it sound like a good plan to allow Walmart into a community. “They bring in lots of jobs.” Fact: They bring in minimum-wage jobs that stop at 38 hours per week so that Walmart does not have to provide benefits. “They bring in large tax revenues to cashstrapped cities.” Fact: The problems they create more than eat up any perceived tax benefits. Keep in mind that the civic leaders who will make the decision regarding Walmart are the very same ones that paid $16,000 each for the incredibly ugly palm trees in downtown Brentwood. Bill Sumner Brentwood

Lucky enough in Discovery Bay Editor: The recent Homes Tour featuring houses for sale in Discovery Bay made me realize once again what a unique and beautiful community I live in. I have traveled to six continents and not found a place with the amenities of Discovery Bay. Oh yes, there are waterfront homes in the Puget Sound of Washington State, but think of the rain. Florida, the Carolinas and other East Coast states have houses on the water, but why worry about cyclones and tropical storms? Discovery Bay has it all: access to many waterways, a well maintained golf course, a lake in the middle, good weather and many lovely homes with private docks. The realtors should promote the uniqueness of this community. I have a plaque in my home: “If you’re lucky enough to have a house by the water, you’re lucky enough.” Janyce Saxberg Discovery Bay

Wolverines’ tennis ace hitting right notes by Michael Dixon Correspondent

Deer Valley High junior Maryn Wunderly is not only the top tennis player on her team; she has a legitimate shot at bringing home an individual Bay Valley Athletic League title in 2011. That is, if she can fit it into her band schedule. Wunderly, a trombone player, has been involved with music since she was in fourth grade. Prior to this year, the only instrument she played was the flute, but this year, she has switched to the trombone, which she plays for the Wolverines’ Marching and Symphonic bands. “I grew up playing in a band,” Deer Valley head coach Brian Richardson said. “I kind of understood the whole relationship with music. So we just worked together. She has to make sure that she keeps up with her band responsibilities, as well as play tennis. I’m committed to helping her because she’s committed to doing what she needs to do.” Since the band and tennis team’s practice schedules are in direct conflict, Wunderly finds other ways to keep her tennis

game sharp. She takes private lessons on Saturday mornings and works out in the off-season. A relative newcomer to tennis – she took up the sport in her freshman year – Wunderly enjoys the accountability the sport affords. “I like that tennis is a oneon-one competitive thing,” she said. “If you do well, it’s because of your good play. If you do badly, it’s your mistakes. You can’t put it on anyone else.” At this point, Wunderly is unsure if her tennis career will extend beyond her senior season as a Wolverine. Since she’s only a junior, she doesn’t know which college she’ll attend, but expects to go to a University of California school to study genetics and/or radiology. According to Richardson, Wunderly’s commitment of time to tennis and band haven’t gotten in the way of her academic pursuits. “Her GPA since I’ve known her has been a little above 3.65 all the time,” Richardson said. “I never have grade issues with her. We have a really open and honest relationship. She knows that she can talk to me.” see Notes page 20A

Antioch beats Napa, continues hot start by Michael Dixon Correspondent

The Antioch Panthers recall 2006 fondly. Not only did Antioch’s last football win against rival Pittsburg come in 2006; it was the last time the Panthers finished above .500. That was also the last time the Panthers started the season 3-0, an achievement they matched with a 40-35 win against Napa on Friday. The game’s most important play came in the fourth quarter. Antioch led 28-21, but the Indians offense was beginning to move the ball at an alarming pace. Napa senior running back Zack Schienholz took the snap, but coughed up the ball. That’s when Antioch (3-0) junior defensive back Darrin Jones took over. He scooped up the fumble and returned it 66 yards for a touchdown. “I saw the ball on the ground and my eyes got big,” Jones said. “All I had to do was grab the ball and go. We played awesome tonight. We never gave up. All we had to do was believe.” Napa (3-2) would score two more touchdowns, but sandwiched between those was a 76-yard run from senior running back Eddie Robinson that kept Antioch’s lead at two possessions. Napa scored with 1:31 left

when senior quarterback Zack Sims hit senior receiver Taylor Martin on an 18-yard touchdown pass. But when Panthers’ senior quarterback Troy Amate recovered the ensuing onside kick, all Antioch needed to do was run out the clock. The game could not have started worse for Antioch. After a long kickoff return by senior Jeremy Bittle was nullified by a penalty, Amate suffered a miscommunication and threw his first pass right at Indians’ junior defensive back Zach Jones. Four plays later, senior running back Michael Richmond gave Napa its only lead of the night on a one-yard touchdown run. Amate settled down after that interception, completing 14 of 22 passes for 201 yards and TD strikes to Jones and junior running back Elbert Hamilton. Hamilton rushed for 58 yards on 11 carries and caught two passes for 31 yards. Robinson notched 110 yards on 10 carries. “I just put it behind me,” Amate said of his interception. “I just thought about the next play and the plays after that. It’s just one interception. I had plenty more passes to go.” Antioch is guaranteed to go into league play with a winning record. Both of the Panthers’ remaining preseason games are at home. see Antioch page 19A

The ECYF Scouts’ overwhelming defense kept Antioch scoreless last weekend. lowing a scant two first downs the entire game and posting the Pee Wee’s third shutout in a row. The Pee Wee Lions were led on defense by linebackers Joseph Guaragna, Cole Zanarini, Harlan Rashada (two sacks) and Travis Baxter (fumble recovery). Defensive backs Devan Lance (interception), Michael Tapia and Ronnie Rivers knocked down a slew of passes. In three games this season, the Pee Wee Lions have outscored their opponents 98-0. The East County Jr. Midgets roared to their third victory, beating a solid Antioch Cougar team 20-6. Demiere Wright ran for 70 yards and Jordan Suckow for 45. Brody Garner threw for two touchdown passes – one to Jared Rodgers for 25 yards, the second to Issac Freytes. On defense, the game breaker was Emiliano Diaz’s interception for a 10-yard touchdown. Stars on defense were Anthony Gripe, Julian Martin, Jeremy Fourner, Ryan Mucher and Niko Zanarini.

The East County Lions Midget Team got a wakeup call, losing to rival Antioch 20-8. Spencer Rohrer set up the Lions’ lone touchdown on a 40-yard run sprung by blocks from Jack Smith and Chris Vanderklugt. Rohrer finished off the drive by catching a 10-yard touchdown pass from Joe Sweeney. This was the second game in a row that Sweeney and Rohrer have hooked up on a touchdown. Dominick Warren and Dominic Espino moved the ball on the ground but were unable to find the end zone. Kapono Carreira led the defense with a key interception. “Our games against Antioch are always hard fought,” said Coach Dave Smith. “We got them last year and they were ready. I’m proud of our guys; they kept playing hard all day. Antioch is a good team and we expect to meet them again this year.” The Lions take to the road Saturday to face the San Leandro Crusaders. – Contributed by Ingrid Gregerson

The East County Youth Football Scouts team slid by rival Antioch on the strength of its defense this weekend. The offense helped, too. Cody Muth took the handoff on the second play of the game and galloped for a 60-yard touchdown. That was all the Scouts defense would need. It shut out Antioch, allowing less than 50 yards of total offense. The defensive onslaught began with an interception by Cody Muth and continued with fumble recoveries by Jon Puckett, Eric Bergen and Riley McCullough. Big-time tackles for losses were recorded by Bryant Weekly, Dylan Ray, Jaden Rashada and De Niro Killian. Offensively, the scouts finished the final series with a quick pass from Mason Brandy to Glenn Borlongan for 26 yards. The Jr. Pee Wee Lions held their own in an 8-6 victory over the Antioch Bobcats, the winning extra point kicked by Cole Gregerson, who also led the Lions’ defense. Devyn Douglas, Hunter Karbowski and Justin Bergen put a stop to Antioch’s offense, holding it to only six points. The victory gave the Jr. Pee Wees a 2-1 record. The Pee Wee Lions faced their toughest opponents yet, an undefeated Antioch team that hadn’t allowed a single point this season. The Lions completely dominated Antioch on both sides of the ball, winning 24-0. The story of the game, however, was the Lions’ D, which mauled the Antioch team all game long, al-

Delta Pats, EC Lions to face off Two of East County’s biggest youth football organizations will play each other for the first time next month. The East County Youth Football Lions and the Delta Patriots have agreed to take their rivalry to the field and will face off at Liberty High on Oct. 29 at 4 p.m. The East County Midgets team (ages 12-14, up to 160 pounds) will face the Delta Patriots’ Varsity West team (ages 13-14). “In the last three years especially, there’s been a serious effort to scrimmage,” said Delta Patriots president Stan Fratus. “All the kids go to school together, all the parents live in the same town and know each other.” Players such as running back Riley Condon and linebacker Alex Einess lead the Varsity West team; the Lions’ Midgets squad fields strong talents in running backs Domonic Espino and Dominick Warren, as well as QB Joe Sweeney and offensive tackle Zac Harris. The opportunity arose when East County found it had a bye week on Oct. 29, so members asked Fratus if the Delta Patriots would be interested in filling the vacancy. “I think it’s a great opportunity for our kids to match up with kids they don’t get to play, but they all know each other,” Midgets head coach Dave Smith said. “There’s a lot of banter back and forth.”

COMMUNITY

CSD director exits committee seat by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Amid continued calls for his resignation from the Discovery Bay CSD Board, embattled Vice President Brian Dawson told his colleagues this week that he would be stepping down from the board’s School District Committee. Pressure for Dawson to vacate his seat has been building since his arrest on suspicion of spousal abuse and child endangerment after Sheriff’s deputies responded to a disturbance at the Dawson home on Aug. 27. Free on $20,000 bail, Dawson will face misdemeanor charges at his arraignment on Oct. 31. At last week’s CSD meeting, resident Jeff Barber repeated his call for Dawson’s resignation, or at least his removal from the school board committee. “I think it is completely inappropriate

Blight from page 1A for the city and its taxpayers would be to hire someone in-house once the position has been OK’d. Antioch Finance Director Dawn Merchant estimated that an entry-level code enforcement officer hired by the city would cost between $41.52 and $43.28 per hour, including salary and benefits. Graham noted that the hiring and training process would take roughly 60 to 90 days. “For the long-term sustainability of this program … I say we get it right from day one,” Kalinowski said. “I’m not going to support code enforcement at $100 an hour where someone else is making money

Wounded from page 3A “I keep having to tell him that my little Escape is not an armored vehicle,” laughed Lynne. Marquart is now working on getting full clearance to return to his unit and deploy if and when it does. He hopes that if he’s sent overseas again, it’s on a humanitarian mission. “Two tours in Afghanistan in three years,” he said, “I’m done (with combat.)” A technician for Comcast when he’s home, Marquart said he’d like to extend his seven-year enlistment to a full 20. For now, the 36-year-old believes his brush with death has made him slow down and take life easier. He’s an assistant Cubmaster for Ryan’s Cub Scout pack, likes to help with his daughter Julianne’s homework, and notices small things, even rattles in his work truck, more. Awarded the Purple Heart and Navy

that you have a director out of jail on bail being charged by the district attorney for violence against his family, including child endangerment,” Barber said at the meeting. “I don’t believe that individual should be representing this board anywhere or anyplace and I think you should remove that director at your earliest convenience, tonight if possible, from any active representation on this board … I think it is completely wrong, especially anything to do with children, given the charges against the individual.” Contacted by phone on Tuesday, Dawson declined to comment on Barber’s demand. Later, however, he sent The Press a copy of a one-sentence e-mail he had sent to his fellow board members Monday. “Gentlemen,” the e-mail read, “due to a scheduling conflict, I have asked Director Steele to attend school board meetings for me for the indefinite future.” No further details

were offered. Steele, the alternate on the school district committee, agreed to take over for Dawson. “I am happy to step up and take over that representation,” said Steele. “And I’m looking forward to working with the school board directly.” Meanwhile, CSD Director Mark Simon said Dawson should resign not only from the school district committee but the CSD board as well: “I believe that Brian should have stepped down immediately from the school board committee, although I don’t believe for a minute that he is a threat to children, but because he is a distraction to the board. His conduct has become the center of attention and I have an issue with that … I still maintain that he should resign from the (CSD) board.” Director Ray Tetreault, who previously called for Dawson’s resignation, also continues to believe the vice president should step

down. “It’s about perception,” said Tetreault. “The whole thing is unfortunate but the town shouldn’t have to deal with any of it. I stand with my previous comment that he should do the right thing (and resign).” Dawson was arrested after the Aug. 27 incident during which his wife, Jessica, sustained bruises but did not on require hospitalization. If convicted, he could face up to one year in county jail and a $1,000 fine for each of the misdemeanor counts. State law dictates that a CSD board member is required to resign only if convicted of a felony. Dawson, who said he has a history of bipolar disorder, has previously admitted that the altercation took place, which he said was due to his being off medications he could not afford. He has since said he is back on his medications and doing fine, and that he would therefore not resign. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

off our business.” The lack of code enforcement has been a major complaint of Antioch residents since it was a casualty of budget cuts in 2009. Before the recession, Antioch employed a codeenforcement staff of 11. Graham noted that right now there is one employee who can be moved around to handle emergencies. The city currently issues a series of citations and fines for repeated negligence before handing cases over to the county Superior Court, which serves a warrant to the resident demanding that a cleanup be performed. “The continued economic downturn,”

Graham said, “coupled with the devastating effect of home foreclosures and their negative impact on neighborhoods and an unstaffed code enforcement division seems to have come together in a perfect storm of circumstances.” Beverly Knight, a 34-year resident of the city and member of the community activism group Take Back Antioch, recently created an emotional video showing examples of blight in her community: shopping carts and trash strewn about, vacant buildings, graffiti and yards in severe disrepair. After the video was posted to the group’s Facebook page, several members

posted favorable comments. Take Back Antioch founder Brittney Gougeon felt that the discussion City Council held on Tuesday was positive and a step in the right direction. Helping to restore code enforcement has been one of the group’s major goals since its inception in late 2010. “What they did was very responsible and it was in the interest of the citizens and people who have brought their concerns forward over the last six to seven months,” Gougeon said. “I think it will be sufficient for now, and we can revisit this situation in the future.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Achievement Medal, Marquart is happy he was the only one injured in what became an attempt to breach the compound’s walls that was reported worldwide. “The coalition happened to be doing a live-fire exercise on the other side of the fence when they attacked,” he said. “I don’t know the full story; I just know they (the attackers) are dead.” Lynne said she’s proud of her husband, and doesn’t think his wound will keep him from doing his duty. After a brief enlistment earlier in life, she said, he re-enlisted as a result of 9/11. “He saw the attacks and he said, ‘I’m not done. I’m not done serving my country.’” After her husband’s bureaucratic struggle to re-enlist, Lynne is confident things will return to normal for Chris. “A little shrapnel,” she said, “is not going to keep him down.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Bypass from page 1A After years of trying to receive federal funding for the project, local transportation officials were high on the priority list for Corridor Mobility Improvement Account money from the state in June. Currently, the intersection of Sand Creek Road and the Bypass is controlled by traffic lights. After work is completed – roughly 18 months after groundbreaking – the entrance/exit at Sand Creek Road will look and function much like the Bypass junctions at Laurel Road in Oakley and Lone Tree Way in Antioch. Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor is excited at the prospect of dispersing the gridlock caused by the Sand Creek-Bypass bottleneck. When the project is completed, southbound commuters can drive from Antioch to Brentwood without hitting a traffic light until Balfour Road. “We are very, very excited because

this is a great asset for all of far East County,” Taylor said. “We have to dot the I’s and cross the T’s to make sure all the project bids are in order, but it’s good stuff for the locals.” Construction on the Contra Loma Boulevard through L Street segment of Highway 4 will likely start in January. The project will also eliminate the on and off ramps at G Street. Right now, workers are widening Highway 4 from Loveridge Road in Pittsburg through Antioch’s Somersville Road. Both projects are slated to conclude in mid-to-late 2013. Kalinowski noted that more details regarding the Sand Creek Road interchange would be discussed at the next TRANSPLAN meeting on Thursday, Oct. 13 at 6:30 p.m. at Tri Delta Transit headquarters, 801 Wilbur Ave. in Antioch.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters The Age of the Machines… …and that’s no reference or nod - although there should be so please consider this that nod – to the Machine Age. The early 20th century and late 19th century, between World War I and World War II, saw more complex models of technology being produced (across the board) than any time before it’s time. The first computer ever invented and the invention of the transistor made way for mass production; earth moving machinery, skyscrapers, the railroad, the automobile, and aircrafts just to name a few. Fast forward a century’s worth of technology and advancements have gone too far. Too many people are trying to make too many things automated – insert here the real estate market and/or the stock market – and we’re all paying the price for it. At the time this article was being written (September 20, 2011) 70 percent of all stock trades made were made using algorithms. In one such case – Rebellion Research – a computer program analyses decade’s worth of stock market data, and, after coming up with a long term strategy, gives Rebellion’s traders a list of buy/sell orders every morning. Combine that with that fact that the “malfunctioning” of these algorithms has more than once caused the shutdown of the London Stock Exchange and you should start to wonder what’s wrong with this picture. This brilliant way of thinking – the whole more production, less person, let’s become automated – has been affecting the mortgage business for quite some time, and now it seems as if things have once again gotten worse. As an example, Quicken Loans has their newest

commercial stating “Quicken Loans, Engineered to Amaze!” Last time I checked, the mortgage business, stock business, or any other business for that matter was personally related to the people, not “Engineered to Amaze.” On that note, and to continue showcasing how bad things have gotten, all new appraisal/appraiser guidelines were put into place September 1, 2011. The thinking behind this was simple; make everyone across the country more efficient by putting them all on the same platform. By automating appraisal reports we’ve essentially cut out our local appraisers’ vocal cords. No longer will they be able to “comment” with such appraiser-discretion. They (appraisers) now have to pick certain drop downs from certain categories. No more commentary, only automation. In theory, at least in the minds of the powers that made this decision, it’ll be easier for big banks to review appraisals (because they’ll all look the same)…making quality control that much easier. However, if you follow “The Age of the Machine” theory, you wouldn’t have any issue with an Alabama appraiser appraising your delta front property. What’s the difference in the eyes of the banks…comments don’t matter. That said, please be aware; appraisals will be tighter in the months to follow. Please, please, please, make sure you review your appraisal with your lender to ensure you understand it.

us in a blanket of chilled anticipation as the leaves burn yellow and red, signaling that winter won’t be far behind. It’s a time to pack away beach blankets and dust off raincoats. The energy in the earth is changing, but a few changes to your home can help channel that energy into a cozy winter environment.

Feng shui, a technique believed to increase the flow of energy called “chi” in your home to influence your life on a greater scale, has been around for centuries. Originally practiced by ancient Chinese emperors, feng shui, pronounced “fung shway,” was thought to be a guaranteed method of organization to influence energies, which would translate into the success or failure of a kingdom. Contemporary feng shui practices are personalized to the individual, but many practitioners believe that by balancing your yin and yang energies, you can lead a happier, healthier and more prosperous life. Feng shui practitioners seek to balance the energies in their homes, creating an environment

that exudes a desired ambiance. The belief is that when chi flows freely through your home, you’ll be able to generate more creativity to help you succeed in many aspects of life, from relationships to business. According to renowned feng shui expert Betsy Stang, autumn is a time to reflect nature and purge your home of dead energy to make way for new, positive energy. Basically, out with the old and in with the new – just as trees shed their leaves to make way for blossoms in the spring. Decluttering your living space is a good way to begin a feng shuiinspired lifestyle. Eradicate piles, clear pathways and toss things you don’t use or need so that chi may flow more freely in your home. You don’t need to buy new furniture or turn your house upside down. Just open up your space and become more in tune with the energies flowing within your home. According to Stang, since the rain and cold of autumn and winter drive us indoors, feng shui is especially important right now. It helps us create a relaxing and inviting space for those shortening days and lengthening nights. Stang suggests placing a comfy chair in the corner of a room and creating a cozy reading nook, complete with a blanket, a small end table for our steaming cup of coffee or tea, and a lamp that offers a warm, golden glow, much like the sun. Since we’ll spend more time indoors, Stang see Feng Shui page 13B

New Law on Short Sales What you Should Know to Protect Yourself by Joan Grimes, Esq. things: 1) Did you make any money on the deal and 2) Did you borrow any money which was not repaid? If you made money on the deal, including taking out cash to buy another house, car, pay off credit card, you may have a gain. If you borrowed money which was not repaid, you will have Cancellation of Debt Income (“CODI”). CODI will be taxable to you at your current tax rate unless an exception applies. Make sure you know all the tax implications before the short sale is completed. If there is CODI, it can be discharged in bankruptcy, but only if the bankruptcy is filed prior to the short sale being completed. In conclusion, CCP 580(e) is a mixed bag for consumers. It may help reduce personal liability while increasing tax liability. There is no question that this new law is going to hurt the lenders and help the IRS and State Franchise Tax Board. This will be found money for the tax man. Borrowers will see the forgiveness of personal liability and completely disregard the tax consequences. Don’t be one of those people! If you are considering a short sale, seek legal advice prior to starting the short sale process. This is a complicated area of the law, but a bankruptcy or real estate attorney should be able to make to an analysis of your particular situation fairly quickly. I see people for a FREE 30 minute consultations at my offices located in Walnut Creek, Antioch and Brentwood.

Effective July 15, 2011, California Code of Civil Procedure (“CCP”) 580(e) was amended to prohibit a deficiency judgment on any loan secured solely by a deed of trust on a 1-4 unit dwelling sold in a short sale. Enough legal jargon…what exactly does this mean and how does apply to you? First, it means that if your lenders agree to a short sale, it will release you from your personal liability on loans secured solely by a deed of trust against a dwelling of 1- 4 units. If the lenders want the short sale to go through, they will have to be satisfied with the proceeds from the sale. The banks can no longer demand that borrowers sign promissory notes… AND no more tricking borrowers into believing that releasing of the lien was in fact releasing their personal liability. The lenders do not have to agree to the short sale, but if they agree, they cannot come after you once the short sale is completed. However, if you think this is too good to be true…you’re right. Keep reading! Second, there is no requirement for a release of personal liability on anything other than a consensual lien i.e. no requirement to release judgment lien or liens placed on the property such as by a homeowners association or taxing authority. These parties do not have to agree to accept the proceeds from the sale as payment in full. The forgiveness of personal liability also does not apply to borrowers who are corporations, limited liability companies, limited partnership or political subdivision of the state. In addition, it also does not prohibit the lender from obtaining a judgment for fraud with respect to the short sale or waste committed to the property. Third, CCP 580(e) does not release you from any tax liability. Remember, every short sale has tax implications. The IRS/State Franchise Tax Board wants to know two

A down-to-earth guide to home heating and cooling

igh energy costs have many homeowners looking for new ways to save money.

According to the Department of Energy, the average homeowner pays about $1,900 annually on utilities, most of it in heating and cooling bills.

A growing number of homeowners are finding savings in their own backyards by utilizing the earth’s natural energy to heat and cool their houses. It’s called geothermal energy – and it can save you some green while you’re going green. The geothermal system – also known as ground source heat pump system (GSHPS) see Heating page 9B

How it works The temperature of the earth – from a few feet to hundreds of feet down – is moderate and fairly constant. In many places it stays in the mid- to upper-50s all year. Instead of

burning fossil fuels, a geothermal heat pump absorbs the energy stored in the earth to heat a home in the winter. In summer, a heat pump rejects the heat from the space and transfers it back into the earth – making it efficient and cost-effective. To make it work, you need three elements: an underground loop system, a geothermal heat pump and an air-delivery system: ♦ Loop system: This is a system of high-density polyethylene plastic pipes buried in the ground. They’re filled with a mixture of water see Heating page 14B

Harvest from page 10B the region’s average date for a hard frost and calculate back the weeks needed to successfully grow a full late-season crop. ♦ Rotate plant location. For example, if peas were planted in the spring in one section of the garden, don’t plant them in the same location for the fall growing season. Use instead that area of the garden for spinach this time around. Rotating crops helps the garden’s soil to replace and retain valuable nutrients naturally. ♦ The garden needs food to thrive. Feed edibles, whether in an in-ground garden or in container pots, with Miracle-Gro Shake ’n Feed Tomato, Fruits & Vegetables Plant Food Plus Calcium. One application feeds plants for up to three months – plenty of time for the fall garden to produce a harvest of delicious vegetables – and contains calcium to help plants grow better quality, longerlasting fruits and vegetables. ♦ Keep an eye on plants as they grow, and water daily and protect from the

dangers of a hard frost. Monitor weather reports. If a hard frost is predicted earlier than expected, cover the crops with blankets or plastic for the night, and uncover in the morning, once the threat of freezing has passed. ♦ Harvest plants as they reach maturity. Sometimes a chilly night with a slight frost can enhance the flavor if vegetables are picked during or immediately after the temperature drops. ♦ Get a family member to record the entire growing season through the winter frost, keeping track of what was planted, the date it was planted, the flavor of the vegetables harvested and even which recipes the family made and enjoyed with the produce. Use this information next year to better plan the fall garden and increase the amount of produce harvested.

purple and pink flowers) and lantana (also in a variety of colors) are two excellent choices for fast growth, year-round flowers and hearty constitutions. Agapantha – or lily of the Nile – is also a popular perennial, as is the beautiful hydrangea, although it requires more shade than some of the other shrubs. And don’t forget the bulbs. “Accent items such as irises or tulips or any kind of bulb are nice additions,” said Villasenor. “Because they pop up in the spring and add a splash of color.” But for those looking for a design

that requires even less maintenance, there are other options. “The bark and rocks are very popular,” said Villasenor. “Another thing that’s popular is the mound look with moss boulders. It kind of creates a creek bed effect with plants accented along the edges. It’s very pretty and a bit different.” So whether it’s a perennials-only yard, annuals-alike garden or a combination of the two, the perfect outdoor environment is the one that ultimately best fits your sense of style – and lifestyle.

Feng Shui from page 6B also suggests introducing natural elements into décor, such as a bowl of pine cones, or stones placed on a shelf to welcome Mother Nature’s presence. Feng shui expert Debra Duneier encourages us to warm our homes by using the kitchen to bake up inviting aromas. The heat from the oven will warm the halls while the scent of cookies will take you back to the peaceful days of your youth. Nationally recognized feng shui consultant Ken Lauher urges feng shui beginners to clear their entryway so that chi can flow freely into the home and

circulate through each room. If the front entryway is blocked, nature’s positive energy can’t enter your home. Feng shui means wind and water, and like those elements, it’s fluid – but can’t be forced into a space. As wind and water are the central elements of the practice, experts also suggest that beginners hang wind chimes in order to hear and feel the movement of the air. Since the sound of flowing water increases positive chi, it’s helpful to install a small aquarium or water feature such as a tabletop fountain. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

and antifreeze that circulates throughout the pipes. Open-loop systems circulate water drawn from a well. ♦ Geothermal heat pump: The geothermal heat pump extracts heat from the fluid within the loop. This heat is then sent into the house. In the summer, it extracts heat from the indoor air and transfers it to the fluid, which cools as it circulates through the loop. ♦ Air-delivery system: Most geothermal pumps use an electrically driven fan to distribute the air through ducts in the house. A residential system can also be equipped to heat household water. According to the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association, a geothermal system is 50 to 70 percent more efficient than other heating systems, and 20 to 40 percent more efficient than available air conditioners. That means direct savings on utility bills.

How it saves you money According to Bosch Thermotechnology

North America: ♦ Geothermal heat pumps have the lowest life-cycle cost today – 25 to 50 percent less than a conventional system. ♦ You can save up to 70 percent on your energy bill, depending on your location and which GSHPS you use. ♦ Although the upfront costs are often higher than a conventional system, the cost can be recouped within a short period of time – as little as five to seven years. ♦ Take advantage of state, local, utility and federal incentives that promote renewable energy and energy efficiency. Look up rebates, tax credits and financing options in your area at the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency, www. dsireusa.org. Whether you’re looking to build a new, more energy-efficient house, or want to cut back your utility bills on your current house, consider exploring ways you can use the energy Mother Nature has in your own yard.

Busy autumn for wishing by Marla Luckhardt As summer winds down, we look forward to a new season filled with hope, holidays, family and joy. In the past few months, An Elderly Wish Foundation (AEWF) has filled six new wishes, bringing joy to the faces of our beloved seniors here in Contra Costa County. AEWF grants wishes to seniors over 60 who reside in Contra Costa County and suffer from a life-threatening or terminal illness. Visit the organization’s website, www. elderlywish.org, and enjoy the glowing faces of the recipients as they celebrate life their way! Among them are two of our seniors: Orland, in his Nascar debut, waving from his car as he circles the track, and Anne, reveling in her Mickey Mouse ears as the newest official citizen of Disneyland. The organization’s annual Wish Angel Campaign runs from Nov. 1 to Dec. 31. A donation of $25 or more will assist AEWF in its mission. Excitement is in the air as AEWF plans its second major fundraiser, the 10th annual Heart to Heart Ball. This elegant dinner dance will be held at the Lone Tree Golf and Country Club in Antioch on Feb. 25, 2012. For $60 you can enjoy a gourmet dinner, dancing and a fun auction. Auction items include trips, show tickets, golfing and Napa limo excursions. Terry Fator, winner of “America’s Got Talent” three years ago, has been headlining in Las Vegas ever since. His show is one of the best on the strip, and his tickets are a hot item. He donated two VIP tickets last year, including a personal meet-and-greet, and he’s doing it again this year. Every penny raised goes to the wishes and kick-starts AEWF’s year of giving. Many local merchants have supported AEWF with donations of all kinds including yummy gift cards and freebies from Red Robin, Mia’s, Mimi’s, Cap’s, Grazie’s and Sticky Chicken, to name a few. On each of the five Sundays in October, the senior appreciation campaign of Fresh Choice in Antioch is donating 15 percent of its profits to AEWF. With a coupon that you can find in a multitude of places (e-mail me if you need a list), Fresh Choice will also offer a 15-percent discount to seniors on every Sunday in October to match its already generous donation. The food is healthy, delicious and reasonably priced – with or without the senior discount. It’s nice to see the love and support from everyone. More than 100 other businesses are donating to AEWF. A full list will published on the website following the Heart to Heart Ball. AEWF recently celebrated Nellie Huillade’s 99th birthday. More than 100 people at Cortona Park sang happy birthday and shared cake with Nellie, who was overwhelmed with joy – and AEWF plans to make her 100th birthday next year even better! For more information, call AEWF at 925-978-1883 or e-mail me at marla2054@ aol.com. Marla Luckhardt is a Discovery Bay resident and member of the East Contra Costa Senior Coalition. She works with several local senior care and advocacy groups.

SEPTEMBER 30, 2011

Trilogy at The Vineyards brings boomers and grandchildren together When it comes to what matters most in retirement, driving distance to family and friends is the most important factor, according to a recent online survey of over 2000 boomers by Trilogy by Shea Homes. To celebrate family, Trilogy at The Vineyards, located in Brentwood, recently held its own version of the popular television comedy series “Kids Say the Darndest Things” at its Labor Day Barbecue Party. Grandchildren of Trilogy residents answered questions ranging from “what’s your mom’s favorite thing to do?” (“lie down,” one replied) to “what are your grandma and grandpa’s names? (“Grandma and Grandpa,” said another with a puzzled look). Responses from the children brought laughs from the audience of residents and families alike. The celebration was just one of many events offered by Trilogy that focuses on strengthening family bonds. Others include summer festivals complete with clowns, dunk tanks and games; a renowned Easter egg hunt attracting over 100 children; Fourth of July celebrations with bicycle and golf cart parades; “Dive In” movies viewable from the pool, and more. “At Trilogy at The Vineyards, we realize the importance of family,” said Dan O’Brien, area president, Trilogy Northern California, Shea Homes, Inc. – and Trilogy resident. “So many of our members move here to be close to their children and grandchildren. It’s fun to see members enjoying grandchildren at the swimming pool or at lunch on the Club Los Meganos patio, and for us to also enjoy time with our families here.” O’Brien and wife Kathy made a priority of being near their son, Shaun, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters in Foster City. “Out of all of the places we could have picked to live, we chose Trilogy at The Vineyards because of the people,” O’Brien added. “We got to meet them first because of my role here but then quickly got to know them as friends. We love the lifestyle – celebrating with friends, enjoying fine wine and taking it all in.” What do O’Brien’s granddaughters think of the Trilogy at The Vineyards community? “Grandpa has the coolest house we’ve ever seen,” said 7-year-old Aspen. “We love to go to the club; everyone waits on us like we’re royalty and we’re at a five-star resort,” said a perky Kylee, age 9. “I love the swimming pool; I feel like we’re on vacation.” Trilogy at The Vineyards boasts the award-winning Club Los Meganos, a new 34,000-square-foot private club and centerpiece of the community, which is open to homeowners and their families. It offers diverse fitness classes and high-end equipment at the Delta Athletic Club, plus two pools, a culinary studio and bistro-style restaurant, an event center and a grand living room, as well as luxurious treatments at Sawã Spa (both granddaughters highly recommend the princess manicure and pedicure there). Outdoor amenities include The Los Olivos Tennis Pavilion with four courts to choose from, three miles of wine country walking trails and more. In addition to community activities and amenities, the local area also offers a number of options for fun. Trilogy at The Vineyards is set in the middle of 30 acres of active vineyards, 18 acres of olive orchards – and a breathtaking view of Mount Diablo. “Our families love to come to Brentwood to visit us, pick fruit at Nunn Better Farms or enjoy the farmers’ market in the morning and

spend the afternoon at Club Los Meganos,” said O’Brien. “So what does grandpa do at Trilogy during the week?” Aspen asked. “Nothing silly,” answered her sister. “He’s the boss.” “You can’t make this stuff up,” said a smiling O’Brien. Find out why Shea Home Active Lifestyle communities have been ranked No. 1 in customer service three years in a row. For more information on Trilogy at The Vineyards or to schedule a tour of new homes ranging from 1,465 to 2,853 square feet and starting from the $390s, visit www.trilogylife.com/vineyards or call 800-685-6494.
