City facing more budget cutbacks by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

What a difference a year makes. The three City Council candidates at a forum in October of 2008 assured the public that the economic downturn would not significantly hurt the city budget and that city employee layoffs were not anticipated and would not be supported. Last week – after a year in which city spending has been slashed by more than $11 million and dozens of employees laid off while the rest took a cut in pay, hours and benefits – the council agreed to slash another $1 million and was told that the city is facing at least a $2.6 million deficit by July of 2011 unless even more cuts are made. “We are not out of the woods at all at this time,” Assistant City Manager Arlene

Mornick told the council on Sept. 22. The good news for now is that if more than $1 million can be saved in the coming year through staff reorganizations, layoffs, reductions in police overtime and a retirement-andreturn-to-work program, the current budget will have a 10percent reserve balance by July of 2010, which is the minimum allowed by city policy. But those savings aren’t guaranteed. “I can’t stress enough how important it is that we meet the additional estimated savings,” said Mornick. “If we don’t meet those, then that’s over $1 million that has to come out of somewhere else. So that’s extremely important.” Just as important will be making the additional cuts see Budget page 22A

The riverboat Delta King was a primary mode of transportation between Sacramento and San Francisco in the late 1920s and ’30s.

Bringing in Delta King’s big wheel The front doors and windows of the Antioch Historical Society building were removed this week in order to accept new windows and doors that look like the original ones. While the windows and doors were out, and before the new ones are installed, workers moved in one of the larger exhibits in the museum, the original ship’s wheel off of the old Delta King, a 285-foot riverboat christened in Stockton in 1927. The wheel is about 11 feet in diameter. The King and her identical sister ship, the Delta Queen, plied the waters between Sacramento and San Francisco

until the late 1930s, when automobiles and improved roads diminished their importance. The ships served during WWII as net tenders, floating barracks, troop transports and hospital ships in San Francisco Bay. The Delta King now serves as a restaurant in Old Sacramento, while the Queen is still at work on the Mississippi River near New Orleans. The Antioch Historical Society Museum is located at 1500 W. Fourth St. in Antioch. Hours are Wednesdays and Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m. For more information, call 925-757-2409.

Brentwood Idol-izes 10-year-old star by Samie Hartley Staff Writer From country crooners to youthful yodelers, downtown Brentwood heard a variety of musical marvels during the inaugural Brentwood Idol competition. Thirteen singers braved the afternoon heat last week to showcase their singing talents, but 10-year-old Kriesha Tiu raised the bar to unreachable heights early in the competition with her first-place rendition of Celine Dion’s “I Surrender.” The pint-size Marsh Creek Elementary School fifth-grader blew the judges away with her powerful pipes, which stopped all the action during the Downtown Brentwood festivities. The crowd cheered as she hit the high notes that would have given Grammy-winner Dion a run for her money. Kriesha, who began singing lessons at age 7, said her Brentwood Idol trophy would go with the other awards she’s won during her brief career, which include winning back-to-back titles at the Alameda County Fair Talent and Performing Arts Competition in 2008 and 2009 and placing in the top 10 at the Best New Talent Competition held at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles last year. “I love to sing,” Kriesha said. “I’ve been practicing this song for a while, and it was really exciting to sing it for everyone.”

Above, third-place winners Jill Horn and Susannah Meyer perform an encore of “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.” Right, Kriesha Tiu, 10, blew away the competition at the 2009 Brentwood Idol competition with her performance of Celine Dion’s “I Surrender.” Kriesha said she’d like to buy a puppy with her $100 in prize money, but she’ll need to convince her parents first. Katy Pasion, who brought her own cheering section with her, took second place with her touching performance of Martina McBride’s “Broken Wing,” and Jill Horn and Susannah Meyer took third with their energizing a cappella rendition

of the World War II era hit “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.” Other highlights of the event included an electric performance of Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode” by Vance Pasquinelli, an adorably rockin’ rendition of Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” by Ian Gardizi, 8, and a soulfully heartbreaking version of R.E.M’s “Everybody Hurts”

by 9-year-old Matthew Parry-Jones. Master of Ceremonies Annette Beckstrand said that considering the number of impressive performances, next year’s competition would need to be divided into age groups.

Pieces of home HARD LOAN MODS – PART IV

Photo by Josie Monaghan

irl Scout Gold Award candidate Erika So stands patiently in line at the post office Saturday, waiting to mail boxes of goods headed for troops overseas. Erika’s project, A Piece of Home, garnered enough items to fill 20 boxes during last weekend’s 100 Years of Scouting celebration at the Contra Costa County Fairgrounds in Antioch. With the help of Antioch Military Families and Friends (AMFF), the goodies were collected at the fairgrounds, packed at the AMFF’s new digs at the Rivertown Resource Center (courtesy of Delta 2000) and sent on their way. Here’s a tip of the cap to everyone who donated, packed and transported it all – and especially to Erika.

G

[This is the fourth part in a series of articles about why some loan modifications are so hard to get approved.] The fourth reason I’ll discuss today may be the most likely to cause your blood to boil because it will sound so ridiculous. First, let’s define some terms. When I say “investor,” that is the entity that either holds your note, or bought the bonds backed by your mortgage. They are the ones that are ultimately holding the bag if your loan goes bad. They have hired “servicers” to handle collecting payments from you. When you call the 800# on your mortgage statement, you are talking to your servicer, not the investor. The servicer has certain legal obligations to the investor, mostly to protect their investment in the best way possible. So you would THINK this means that when faced with a choice of losing some money now by modifying your loan, or losing a whole lot more money later in a foreclosure, the servicer would jump at the chance to save their client money, right? Unfortunately, no. The servicers are scared that if they modify too many loans too

aggressively, the investor can come back and sue them later for giving away too much of their money if the market recovers quickly. In a sick, twisted way, the servicers would rather take a conservative view, and turn down more modifications, even if it means more foreclosures. This way, they can tell their investors that they are “trying hard” to collect their money. But before you get out the pitchforks and march on your servicer, I do have one point in their defense. There are some real laws on the books back from the Depression area that forbid bond issuers from changing the terms of their bonds after they have been issued. So in some cases, they literally CAN’T modify your loan. At one time these laws made sense, but they are having some unintended negative impacts now.

Party’s 4 You floats to new heights by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Some people create art with paints and clay; others prefer chalks and metals. But for Gary Moody and Nancy Key, the material of choice is balloons. Moody and Key took over Brentwood’s Party’s 4 You in June and decided they wanted to find a new way to attract attention to the decade-old party supply store, and balloons became a natural choice. “If you go to other party places and ask for balloons, they’ll just blow them up for you and send you on your way, but we take it a step further and create a design with them,” Moody said. “Balloons can be used to create arrangements just like flowers. There are so many options. You don’t have to tie them to string and let them hang there. Balloons can be more than an addition of color. They can be the centerpiece.” Together Moody and Key use balloons to create archways, sculptures, columns, kites and bouquets. While their work has been featured at birthday parties and other private gatherings, they’ve also provided decorations for large community events such as the Liberty High School Athletic Booster Club’s annual Truck Raffle dinner held in August, which isn’t too shabby considering Moody and Key have no prior experience in the party business. “We were both recently unemployed, and when we saw that this place was for sale,

Gary Moody and Nancy Key offer a plethora of party supplies for all occasions at Party’s 4 You in Brentwood.

we thought it might be something fun to try,” Moody said. “We went home and did the research and developed a business plan and decided to go for it. I have a background in business and Nancy has Martha Stewart skills when it comes to designing and decorating, so it seemed like a good fit for us.” Moody and Key are learning as they go, designing new balloon sculptures and bouquets on a weekly basis, but their initiation into the business has been enjoyable. “People generally come into a party supply store in a good mood,” Moody said.

“They’re ready to celebrate, and it’s nice to be able to play a part in making that celebration special. With the balloons, we like to design something that people are going to remember.” So far the plan is working. While Moody and Key have done little advertising, new customers have come in on a regular basis to inquire about balloon decorations they’ve seen at events or parties. With a variety of colors, shapes and sizes, the only limit in balloon design is how far your imagination will take you, so Moody and Key are able to

help customers come up with concepts to go along with any theme. And using the Hi-float process, balloons are inflated with a special material that keeps latex balloons floating for up to five days, so the decorations last beyond the big day and customers are able to keep them on display just like a bouquet of flowers. While the balloon designs are helping bring business back to Party’s 4 You, the party supply store remains a one-stop shop for all your party needs. From invitations to plates and napkins in 20 colors, Party’s 4 You has everything you need to throw a festive event. And it’s never too early to start thinking about upcoming holiday parties. The Halloween display is complete and the Thanksgiving inventory is already taking shape. New items are on display weekly. “We’re trying to get new stuff out on the floor as soon as possible,” Moody said. “People like to come in and look around to get ideas, and then they’ll come back later to buy what they need. But there are always those last minute planners who come in the day before or even the day of the event – but we can help them, too. We’re flexible, and we’ll find a way to make sure you have a memorable party whether you give us two weeks’ notice or two days.” Party’s 4 You, located at 3901 Walnut Blvd. in Brentwood, is open from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

East County teachers honored by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Teacher of the Year finalist Steven Ernest and other East County teachers made the grade last week as they were honored for their commitment to education at the annual Teacher of the Year awards dinner on Sept. 24 at the Concord Hilton. Ernest, a music teacher at Heritage High School in Brentwood, was one of three finalists for the top award along with Mary Alexander of Marina Vista Elementary in Pittsburg, and winner Joell Marchese of Pine Valley Middle School in San Ramon. Other honorees for District Teacher of the Year 2009-2010 for East County were Stacie Maslen of the Byron Union School District (Excelsior Middle School), Frances Prochaska of the Brentwood Union School District (Edna Hill Middle School), Julie Swan of the Oakley Union School District (Vintage Parkway Elementary), Janet Murirragui of the Antioch Unified School District (Deer Valley High School) and Angel Taylor of the Knightsen School District (Knightsen Elementary School). California established the Teacher of the Year program in 1972 as a way to recognize outstanding teachers. Today nearly 8,600 teachers in Contra Costa County are eligible for the award. The program is open to all teachers in public and private schools, grades pre-kindergarten through 12. This year 20 nominees represented 17 Contra Costa County school districts as well as the Contra Costa Community College District. The application process began in late spring when a panel of educators and business people reviewed a list of applicants from each school district in Contra Costa County. The top five or six teachers were chosen to move on to the next phase, which included classroom observations and an interview process. In August, the three finalists were asked to give a three-to-five minute speech before the Mt. Diablo Unified School District’s new-teacher orientation, where they were judged before another panel of educators and business representatives.

Harmer running uphill against Garamendi by Dave Roberts Staff Writer It’s rare when a seat in the U.S. Congress becomes vacant. So when 10th District Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher resigned this summer to take a position in the State Department, candidates came out of the woodwork. The Sept. 1 primary winnowed the 14 candidates down to five, with Democratic Lt. Gov. John Garamendi the favorite to win the Nov. 3 election in a district that includes Antioch, Oakley, Bethel Island and Knightsen – despite the fact that he lives in Walnut Grove, which is just outside the district. Not only does Garamendi, a lifelong politician, have excellent name recognition but the 10th District is heavily weighted in favor of Democrats, providing him with a major advantage over Republican candidate David Harmer, an attorney whose father was once a state senator and lieutenant governor. Democrats comprise 48 percent of the registered voters in the 10th District compared to just 28 percent who are Republican. The remainder belong to minor parties or declined to state their affiliation. Fewer than one in three registered voters bothered to vote in the primary; but of those who did, Democrats outnumbered Republicans 2-to-1. Garamendi was the top vote getter with 24 percent, followed by Democrat Mark DeSaulnier with 22 percent (only the top vote getter from each party wins).

GARAMENDI

HARMER

Harmer came in third with 21 percent, easily outdistancing the Republican runner-up, who garnered only 4 percent. The contrast in political philosophy is significant between Garamendi, a liberal who is to the left of the Congressional Democratic leadership on some issues, and the conservative Harmer, as revealed in a candidate forum on Aug. 11. Garamendi supports President Obama on immigration reform, including providing a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants and increasing border security. But he parts company with the president and Democratic leaders on the $106 billion authorization to continue the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. “Afghanistan is an issue that is going to plague this country and the rest of the world for a long time,” he said. “It’s the hotbed of terrorism probably for much of the world. We need a presence there for a while. I would not have voted for an appropriation unless it was matched with humanitarian and

economic development.” Garamendi supports a government-run health care system – “expanding Medicare to all is the solution” – rather than providing insurance reform. He supports a modified cap-and-trade program aimed at decreasing greenhouse gases and pollution and dismisses concerns that the extra taxes and regulations would hamper economic growth. Garamendi, whose house sits by the Sacramento River, fought against the Delta peripheral canal proposal in 1982. “If we are going to solve the (Delta) problem, we need serious conservation,” he said, including increased recycling and well drilling in Southern California. He favors closing the terrorist prison in Guantanamo Bay and investigating potential wrongdoing by Bush administration officials. “Bush has done much to ruin this country,” he said. “We should investigate what happened during the Bush period, and if someone broke the law they should be held accountable.” Harmer, while conservative, is not as far to the right as some of the Republican candidates. He even praised Tauscher for her representation of the Bay Area, particularly on getting funding for transportation projects. But his campaign signs include the slogan “No More Bailouts” and disagreed with Tauscher’s vote in favor of the nearly trilliondollar bailout for large corporations deemed too big to fail. “We have privatized profit and

socialized loss,” he said. “We are taxing people who are frugal and cautious and careful to live within their means, to bail out people who are the opposite of all of those things.” Harmer differs with Garamendi on immigration reform, saying that while he favors making “it much easier for applicants to immigrate legally, I oppose amnesty for those who broke the law to get here.” He also disagrees on the issue of energy, saying, “I favor an ‘all of the above’ energy policy that uses the source most appropriate. Nuclear (energy) is a part of that picture. I don’t know if it’s the solution itself everywhere. Cap-and-trade is a moot point. It appears dead in the Senate because of the political tradeoffs. Labeled as being an important environmental protection, it includes subsidies to the dirtiest and most polluting producers.” On health care, Harmer is opposed to the original 1,000-plus-page Democratic bill that he said would create 53 new federal bureaucracies, uses the words “shall,” “penalty” or “tax” more than 100 times and places bureaucrats between doctors and patients. He favors a consumer-oriented approach that would “preserve the sanctity of the doctorpatient relationship and removes mandates that make it more expensive.” Also on the Nov. 3 ballot are Jeremy Cloward of the Green Party, Jerome Denham of the American Independent Party and Mary McIlroy of the Peace and Freedom Party.

It’s a Matter of Law By Barbara A. Frantz

BUT I SHOULDN’T HAVE TO PROBATE MY DAD’S ESTATE… HE HAS A LIVING TRUST My client will have to pay almost $8000 to have his dad’s house probated. But his dad had a living trust. How can this happen? His dad put his original home in his living trust when the living trust was created. But his dad sold that home and there is no mention anywhere about the new home. And the new home title from 2008 is in his dad’s name as an unmarried widow. The language in the “pour over” will came from a kit, and the language is not specific enough to allow that piece of property to pour over into the trust. The lesson here is twofold: 1) FUND YOUR TRUST! This means to make sure that all of your bank accounts, houses, time shares, and so on are titled in the name of your living trust; 2) REVIEW YOUR TRUST PERIODICALLY! Even if you don’t think that anything has changed in your trust, it should be reviewed every three to five years. So this brings us to do you need a living trust, and estate plan or just a will? A will is a simple, short document, can even be handwritten under certain circumstances, that identifies a person who will distribute your estate to whom you choose as soon as practicable upon your death. They pay your bills and taxes first, and then give away your items to your loved ones. It is a sufficient way of handling an estate if you have no home, more sentimental items than valuable ones, and there is simplicity in your life (no small kids, ex-spouse, etc).

A Living Trust usually includes additional documents like a burial directive, power of attorney for financial affairs, and power of attorney for healthcare if you are still alive but become incapacitated. If created properly, the Successor Trustee to the estate has great flexibility to make sure that a person’s wishes are met. An estate plan involves tax planning and should be used if your estate is greater than $2 million. After $2 million in value, your estate can pay significant taxes (as much as 55%). Usually your accountant, sometimes a tax attorney and your business or estate planning attorney are involved. Although the fees can add up for these professionals, it is a matter of how much you want to lose to the Government, and how much you want to give to your family instead. While no one wants to think about what they have to pay to protect their estate, the thought of losing a massive amount of what you worked so hard for to the Government can be perceived as repulsive.

Lip service isn’t leadership Editor: Thank you for keeping the Big Dumb Canal Plan, otherwise known as the BDCP, on the front pages. And thank you to Bruce Connelly for taking the time to stay personally involved. Which is why I am writing. After attending numerous meetings this year, it is appalling to me that none of our Board of Supervisors have attended in person. Federal says he sent “people,” but he has not attended. Mary Piepho has written editorials, but has not attended. Maybe she, too, sent “people.” In Stockton, Yolo, and I can assume at (Tuesday’s) meeting in Walnut Grove, there has been at least one Board of Supervisors representative from those counties at every meeting. While I appreciate the editorials, why is it that none of our “people” from Contra Costa can bother to attend? Why is it that they are not telling the public about the impending fish kill of striped bass and black bass and how that will affect our communities that depend on these fish for sustenance, recreation, and more importantly, income to guides, marina owners, gas stations, markets, etc.? I am sure that FLW, which just left Oakley, will not have a national-level tournament to host here if this atrocity is allowed to happen. The above statement is not for dramatic effect, but rather absolute fact. It is based on no science, and when I asked if they (BDCP) had proof of this “method” helping bring back endangered species, I was told: no, but we think it will. I asked that if after the three years they plan on “predator control” does not help bring back the salmon, is their response going to be “whoops”? No answer was forthcoming. We the public, who live, work and have paid lots of tax dollars to our Board of Supervisors, have a right to representation by our “leaders.” Other than Bruce Connelly, we have not seen much from our leaders … but the other four counties bordering the Delta have, and have even sent a representative to D.C. to speak with Secretary of the Interior

TO THE

EDITOR

Hayes about the atrocity! I implore our county leaders to do more than lip service to its residents. They must become involved beyond editorials in the local papers if our livelihoods concerning the water are to continue. Linda Robertson Bethel Island

is a city with a small-town ambience, proudly diverse with an involved, talented and friendly citizenry. Know us and you’ll like us. I say enough is enough. Let’s end the undeserved out-of-town bashing. Walter Ruehlig Antioch

Antioch trashing undeserved

Editor: I, like 20 percent of all humans, suffer from some form of dermatitis. Mine is a minor form that until last spring was kept well in check and was not a problem. After extensive testing and research on me, I shifted my attention to the house. I had my water tested – before and after its treatment by my chrome-encased water softener. The results were so bad I called the lab to verify the chloramine levels, and I quote, “I might drink it but I would not want to expose my lungs and skin to it for very long.” I have since replaced the water softener and the reverse-osmosis system that remove all of the chloramine and yes, my skin is returning to normal. Brentwood should have spent more of our money on water treatment instead of glorified office buildings and a new garbage transfer station. If you smell chlorine in your water, take action for your own health. Seth Blunk Brentwood

Editor: At this rate, I’m afraid that we’ll soon have an Antioch Channel for round-the-clock media frenzy. Like many, I’m sick and tired of us being the Nielson-rating, circulation-boosting whipping boy. Facts, please. 1: The Garrido kidnapping house has an Antioch ZIP code, but unincorporated county is not part of our city police or zoning jurisdiction. 2: Antioch does not have a statistically unusual number of registered sex offenders. 3: The recent youth shooting, though necessarily alarming, was perpetrated off campus by a non-student, since apprehended and confessed. 4: Though racism sadly exists in degree everywhere but heaven, Antioch is not a bigoted town. Hello! We have a Latina and an African-American on the City Council and two African-Americans on the school board. Our recently resigned superintendent was an African-American female, as were two consecutive public information officers. I’ve resided in New York, Boston, Concord, N.H., Los Angeles, San Francisco and Berkeley. Why have I elected to live here? Antioch boasts gorgeous mountain views and a refreshingly cooling Delta breeze from our meandering river. Its streets teasingly undulate, checkered with hills wisely left intact. We boast 26 neighborhood parks. Water and skate parks abut the upcoming Prewett community center/library express/police substation/amphitheater. The town is sandwiched between two shopping malls. A charming Rivertown offers the resplendent art deco, vintage 1927, El Campanil Theatre and a second-to-none new sports eatery and bar, Bases Loaded. With luck, a ferry is on the way. Our community boasts a vibrant historical society, arts and music foundations and national trail-blazing Youth Intervention Network. We have a terrific Chief of Police, Jim Hyde, and School Superintendent, Donald Gill. Our teachers are excellent and our options extraordinary. We offer two notable established charter academies; the new RAMP charter school geared especially for minority students wishing math-science emphasis; Performing Arts and Law and Criminal Justice academies; and a medical magnet high school. Admittedly, Antioch has its challenges, born from its overnight urbanization and economic stress. What city doesn’t? In the end, though, it’s all about the people. Antioch

Water woes

Suburban sprawl isn’t what we had in mind Editor: Remember the sayings your parents used to preach to you: “Take all you want but eat all you take” or “Your eyes are bigger than your stomach” or “Be careful what you ask for”? It’s time for the citizens of Oakley to think about those bits of wisdom our parents tried to instill in our decision-making. The city leaders have been on growth hormones since Oakley inhabitants decided we were being ignored by the county and voted to incorporate. Sure, the prospect of better parks and shopping looked good back then compared to what we had. After all, we had to drive four miles to get to the major shopping and entertainment areas of Antioch, but at least our roads were drivable and you could get there in 10 minutes. But things have changed. The major shopping and entertainment areas of Antioch are now much closer due to the urban sprawl Antioch has suffered over the past 10 years, but it takes 20 minutes to get there! We are now caught up in a fiscal Catch 22. Every new home development adds to the need for more services such as utilities, schools, libraries, shopping, healthcare, waste disposal and transportation, putting a real financial burden on city officials to find ways to fund these services. At the same time, developers – or their lawyers – keep reminding our elected officials how much revenue new building brings to the coffers, thereby justify-

ing their requests for permits to build more houses on ever smaller lots. My family, like many others who have lived in Oakley for 20 or more years, moved here to escape the urban sprawl and its inevitable traffic congestion, bad air, and overpopulation. Now our leaders want to bring it all right back to us. It’s time to make a decision about our futures and the futures of our children. Do we need more material things to blind us to what Mother Nature provided us before man and greed leveled her orchards, vineyards and open pastures? Do we need to dump more waste into the air, ground and waters of the Delta until we are no longer allowed to enjoy the comforts of sitting in front of a cozy fireplace on a winter night because of another “spare the air” day? Maybe we could be happy with the services already existing in Oakley and drive a few miles for those big-city amenities sitting just across the city limits in Antioch. If you are tired of the expansion, write to our city leaders and tell them to stop the growth! William McCullough Oakley

Council caving to high-density slam Editor: Recently after learning of a planned development by Discovery Builders (Seeno) of high density (5.5 homes per acre) on a 13acre lot at Rose Avenue and Laurel Road in Oakley, a group of 80-plus concerned citizens attended the City Council meeting on Sept. 22 in the hopes of having a say in the growth of our city. I was surprised that we were not received kindly. Even with over 106 public-comment cards presented, and approximately 25 speakers stating disapproval of the 76 homes on this lot, the council basically ignored us. One council member even stated that the builder was entitled to build 5.5 homes per acre no matter what we say and that it is too late to change anything! This development has no dedicated park. They are not expanding Laurel Fields or the parking there. The traffic and congestion of our town will increase and the impact of high-density homes on the police force is yet to be seen. Most of us moved here for the rural surroundings and the relaxing Delta life. The developer was wanting the rezoning of the lot only, not a map vote, not a design vote … a rezoning vote! The developer is not in charge of the number of homes approved for this lot. There are guidelines for a reason. Members of the council can say no to the high-density homes that Discovery wants to build in our community. Listen to the people you represent! Let me tell you folks of Oakley: Discovery Builders are here in our town to slam in as many homes as they can and your City Council is going to let them do it. This see Letters page 18A

Letters from page 16A council is not listening when the citizens say enough is enough! This is one of many such developments in the works. Why doesn’t this developer finish the properties that have been approved already so the citizens can see how these high-density developments look, before approving any more. Let your voice be heard. Come to the City Council meetings. Tell the council to preserve some of our rural feel and slow the growth. The next City Council meeting is Oct. 13. They will be voting on the Knox Lane development, which is also a high-density development.

Transparent as a brick wall Editor: With the recent controversy and ultimate resignation of Van Jones, President Obama’s Green Jobs Czar, perhaps it is an appropriate time to reflect on the current administration’s use of the position of “special advisor.” According to numerous published reports from a variety of news sources, President Obama has appointed as many as 30 czars since his term began in January of this year. Although former presidents have appointed czars of their own, none of our commander-in-chiefs have come close to appointing the same number President Obama has. But the key issue in this debate lies not in

the large number of czars appointed by our current president, but in the constitutionality of creating new government positions filled by czars who never face Senate confirmation. According to the United States Constitution, the president currently does have the power to appoint special advisors as he sees fit. The only requirement of these czars is that they do not take over any of the roles or responsibilities of an existing cabinet secretary. Despite the current legality of President Obama’s actions, however, it is a very frightening thought that as many as 30 people have gained tremendous powers, both direct and indirect, all without completion of the lengthy Senate questionnaire for all Senate-confirmed officials. In addition to not completing the questionnaire, presidential czars lie outside the jurisdiction of Senate confirmation and approval, and are rarely required to report to Congressional committees, as all of the cabinet secretaries are. In the land of democracy, we have begun to head down a dangerous road in which one man has the power to dictate the appointment of officials with such high degrees of power. Throughout his campaign and into his presidency, President Obama has promised the American people of government of fairness and transparency. The act of appointing such a high volume of czars, fully outside of the scope and jurisdiction of any representative, elected body is about as transparent as a brick wall. Although President Obama’s practices see Letters page 20A

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Protecting Yourself With Ben S. Bernanke (the current chairman of the Federal Reserve) stating last week that the recession is “very likely over at this point” I have to ask myself one question: Why are more and more stories of faulty (at best) business ethics continuing to arise - if we’ve made it through the worst, why is the worst in people still coming out? Last week I had two new clients, on two very separate occasions, come to me only after having previously dealt with other “industry professionals”. They sat down in my office and the first words out of their mouths pertained to what I would be charging – as in a retainer fee or “personal fee”, not as in at closing through the closing costs (the legal way a mortgage professional is paid) – for my services. In one case the couple had been told that without an upfront check, cut directly to the loan officer, this loan officer would not be able to assist with their financing. That is simply outrageous AND ILLEGAL! I say that to say this…always be wary when it comes to your personal/sensitive information…and not just on a local level. Thanks to the internet, and the limitless information it offers, it’s now easier than ever to fall victim to identity theft. Websites such as Auction.com and RealtyBid.com, even eBay, allow the consumer to purchase homes online. And although the above mentioned sites are very much secure, we’re still talking large wire transfers through

your computer. “Phishing is the criminally fraudulent process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, social security numbers, bank account or credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. Phishing is typically carried out by email and it often directs users to enter sensitive information at a fake web site whose look and feel are almost identical to the legitimate one.” That statement is according the U.S. Census Bureau, who, unfortunately, has had to team up with the Better Business Bureau to ensure its 2010 official government “census” is not a circus of impersonators. With more than 140,000 “trained” individuals going door-to-door across the US to gather data on the American population, sadly, one can only imagine the scam artists who will act as if they are official census takers in hopes of securing personal information. Whenever I read about the villains of the recession, those unscrupulous cads who prey on people’s debts and desperations, I am sadly reminded that without victims, we wouldn’t have villains – someone has to be “gotten” in order to have a “gotcha.” Be smart. When it comes to your money and your personal information, protect yourself. If you have any real estate lending related questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to write me at tfreymortgages@yahoo.com or call me directly on my cell phone, (925) 726-1444.

Letters from page 18A are currently legal, if he truly wants to bring about change to Washington and its politics, he ought to let the American people know just who exactly is being appointed as a czar, the qualifications and responsibilities of the new czar, and an explanation of how the new position will help America in the long run. Ultimately, power should be placed in the hands of the representative bodies to ultimately question and confirm future czars in America. We must fight to keep democracy in the hands of the people, and not let it falter to a brigade of czars blessed with high degrees of power and a lack of clear responsibilities and oversight.

ohn J. Cattolico of Brentwood completed 10 weeks of Army Basic Combat Training and graduated from Boot Camp on Sept. 2 from Fort Jackson, S.C. He is now in AIT School at Fort Gordon, Ga., where he will attend 19 weeks of training as a multi-channel transmission system operator. Cattolico graduated from Liberty High School in 2008. Congratulations, John! Love from Dad, Mom, Josh and Jordan. We are so proud of you!

Budget from page 1A needed to avoid the projected $2.6 million deficit by July of 2011. The deficit could be even worse than that, however, because it’s based on the city collecting an additional 2 percent in property tax and 1 percent in sales tax in the budget year beginning in July of 2010, which some view as unrealistic. “You’re out of money; you’re going to be out of money,” said former Councilman Ralph Hernandez, who represents a group called Citizens for Democracy. “Real estate is not going to increase like you’re projecting. We have been in negotiations and contact with real estate brokers, agents and companies, and their projections are that it’s not going to improve for some time. You’re not going to get the 2-percent increase like you are projecting for 2011.” Hernandez told city officials that they must renegotiate contracts with city employee unions to reduce salaries and benefits. “We think that you have to take a more honest approach of the situation with your employees,” he said.

rentwood resident and 2009 Liberty High School graduate Derek Gaffett graduated from USMC Boot Camp on Sept. 11 as a Private 1st Class, being one of five graduates out of 75 in his class to do so. Gaffett returned to San Diego recently to await his deployment orders. Congratulations, Derek. You’ll be our thoughts and prayers.

“You refused to enact a budget and negotiations where ultimately you tell the employees, ‘Sorry, this is all the money we have. We cannot continue with the contracts that we gave you that we should never have given you.’” Councilman Brian Kalinowski agreed that it’s unrealistic to expect increases in property and sales taxes. “I think we do have some challenges on the property tax increase,” he said. “I think we need to be conservative, and we need to call it zero. I think the same thing is at play with the sales tax. There was a savings grace for five weeks with ‘cash in your clunkers’ that helped a little bit. We are still seeing a decline over last year’s numbers. So I’m a little worried about that.” The ticking fiscal time bomb facing the city budget beginning next July is that concessions from employee unions and one-time revenue increases such as federal grants, state loans and budget account transfers that helped avoid budgetary Armageddon this year will no longer be available next year.

Hall is planned to once again remain open five days a week instead of closing every Friday, and cost-of-living raises are expected to kick in along with other salary and benefit increases. “What won’t be available in the next budget period is a lot of this onetime revenue,” said Mornick. “It’s not going to be there. So it’s going be coming out of the budget. So we are looking at $35.4 million in revenue. But our projected expenditures are way above those revenues. Again, we can’t continue to operate that way.” Further adding to Antioch’s fiscal woes is that state legislators plan to borrow $1.6 million from city property taxes in the coming year, which will be paid back with interest over three years. But it will leave the city short that cash in the meantime unless the city can borrow it from somewhere else. In addition, Antioch Community Center in Prewett Park is scheduled to open next year, adding more than $500,000 in operation costs annually to the budget.

level of the organization. “The decision was much more difficult than I had ever imagined. But it is time. Forty-five years is not only a good caliber, but it’s a good number in describing years of a career.” Concord Police Chief Dave Livingston, 44, has also entered the race and has been publicly endorsed for the post by Rupf, a move considered by some to be an advantage for Livingston. Kalinowski however, sees it differently. “The sheriff has decided that somebody outside of the organization would be a better fit for the department, and first and foremost I completely disagree with that,” said Kalinowski. “I go into the race without the anointment of the sheriff, but that gives me the full ability to do what needs to be done to change the organization.” Kalinowski also told the Press that if elected, his first priority would be to adjust the current graveyard model that Rupf has implemented for deputies, calling the move “dangerous and ineffective.” In April, Rupf cut back the graveyard shifts from 15 one-man patrol cars countywide to four twoman cars, causing widespread concern among residents and deputies over response times and coverage of the county’s unincorporated areas. Kalinowski also said that the policing needs of far East County have not kept pace with the growing population. “The residents in Bethel Island, Knightsen and Discovery Bay have been left out of some of the process and progress, and I recognize that,” he said. “From my perspective, these folks need more than a sheriff ’s office in Discovery Bay. I would like to bring the Oakley substation closer now that the growth is further east. The reality is that seven or eight years ago it (the Oakley-based station) was appropriate, but now that the growth is further east, the Oakley location poses an access problem. “I’m very excited about it (running for election). I have no reservations and I’ve had incredible support. I’m humbled by it and it is greatly appreciated.” The election will be held in June of 2010.

Patriots from page 1B losing to Antioch in a game that, had they won, would have led to a playoff to determine the champion. “We did pretty well. I was pretty pleased,” said Molsberry. Five seniors graduated from that team, and this season’s squad is comprised of players who have been under Molsberry’s tutelage for their entire high school careers. Her No. 1 singles player this year is a sophomore, Arlesha Sumuda. “She’s a very good player,” said the coach. “She has a whole game. She’s very solid, but she’s young. So I would give her another year. The maturity level helps a lot. It will definitely make her game a much higher level, but she plays at a pretty high level right now.” In the second spot is Roxanne Hopkins, whom Molsberry wishes she could clone. “She has a huge heart and a huge desire,” said the coach. “She’s fair but she’s intense. When she plays she plays. She brings everything she’s got to the game, win or lose.” Molsberry also singled out Elysia Cook, who was the team’s athlete of the month, not only for her tennis but for mentoring her younger sister in the sport. Seniors Megan Ward and Victoria Seyoum, Heritage’s No. 1 doubles team, were undefeated last season until they ran into a couple of singles players who were partnered up for the BVAL playoffs, according to Molsberry. “They were heartbroken because they went undefeated all season, and had to play two players they never played,” she said. “They are really good players and they are solid.” Despite the team’s strong start, the season is young, and Molsberry isn’t making any predictions. “We are just taking it as it comes and seeing what happens. We have two more rounds against each school, so anything could happen at that point. They are going to practice; we’re going to practice; you’re going to see kids get better. You have to just kind of play it by ear. I don’t make predictions because I’ve learned the hard way that those don’t tend to work out they way you think.” The loss dropped Deer Valley to 1-5 on the season. “It’s going as well as could be expected,” said Deer Valley Coach Brian Richardson. “Some of our girls didn’t commit to playing year-round like I would have liked them to. But, hopefully, we have a new crop of girls and they will take advantage of all opportunities that are offered here. I’m just hoping our girls enjoy the season. My biggest thing is for them to do the best that they can. I didn’t get a big enough commitment from them, but they are starting to come around. It’s a process, and I’m starting to build up girls and get them stronger and stronger.” Ironically, Richardson is also the personal coach of Heritage’s No. 1 player, Sumuda, so the meet’s top match was a win-win. “If I don’t have any gratification from what my girls here are doing, I have girls I have coached around the league that are doing well,” he said. “So as long as the league does well and we do a lot better at the North Coast Sectionals, it will please me more than anything.”

Football from page 1B ies, who was alone in the far left corner of the end zone. And suddenly, in just 12 seconds of game time, Deer Valley was back on top, this time by the slightly more comfortable margin of 21-14. Logan then marched 74 yards in a little more than three minutes, thanks in large part to powerful 230-pound running back Joseph Stubbs, who barreled his way for runs of 19 and nine yards before plowing into the end zone from four yards out. With the extra point, the game was tied at 21 with 2½ minutes to go. Did Deer Valley have one more scoring drive in its arsenal? It certainly seemed so. Starting on its own 35, the Wolverines got to midfield, then Combs darted and weaved up the middle to put the ball on the Logan 30 with a little more than a minute to go. After a couple of minor runs and an incomplete pass, Deer Valley took a timeout with fourth down and five yards to go, the ball on the Logan 24 and just 21 seconds left on the clock. The formerly lackadaisical Wolverine crowd started chanting, “Let’s go, DV, let’s go!” followed by two claps. Unfortunately, what went was the ball from quarterback Kristoff Williams into the hands of Logan’s Victor Johnson on the 3-yard line with just under 11 seconds left in the game. Now the crowd and cheerleaders were shouting “Deeee-fense! Deeee-fense!” And, after an incomplete pass, as if in answer to their prayers, a Logan player fumbled the ball on a run up the middle into the pack. The crowd and

SPORTS

players went wild. Deer Valley sent the kicking team onto the field and was hurriedly getting ready for the field goal try when Logan called time out to try to ice Lindberg. Lindberg swung his kicking leg a few times to keep loose and received encouraging words from Brandon Williams while the Logan players stood on the sidelines milking the time out for as long as they could. The field goal, which was basically an extra point attempt from the right hash mark, sailed through the uprights, sending the players and crowd into pandemonium. Appropriately for a team that had just walked through the valley of the shadow of death, the players knelt in a large circle at midfield to jointly recite “The Lord’s Prayer.” With the band blasting a victory march and the crowd cheering, the players then got up and were led by Lindberg in a chant of “D-V-H-S, D-V-H-S, yeah!” In a post-game interview an excited Lindberg, a junior, acknowledged that it was the biggest kick of his career. “It was a great game,” he added. “The other team played hard; we played hard. We brought it, you know. All of us.” Deer Valley Head Coach Rich Woods’ face was covered with sweat as he discussed the victory. “It was a great game to watch, I’m sure, from the fans’ standpoint. You know, it’s just one of those things. In all of the championship runs I’ve had, you always have a game like this. It came down to where they see Football page 8B

Football from page 7B fumbled the football and we recovered it and went into our field goal. The things we practice, onside kick return, the twopoint conversion – those are the things that made the difference in this game. And we persevered.” Ironically, Lindberg is not the Wolverines’ starting kicker. He was only playing because regular kicker Julio Villegas hurt his ankle the preceding week against Sacred Heart Cathedral (which is understandable, given that Deer Valley scored 62 points in that game). “Brierly Lindberg came in; redeemed himself after missing the PAT,” said Woods. “The field goal he kicked was right down the middle. So that’s pretty darn good.” One of the other highlights of the game was a trick play that led to Deer Valley’s second touchdown. Williams threw a flare to halfback Brandon Williams on the right side, who instead of running it, threw it 30 yards to Jefferies, who was all alone and ran it 40 yards for the score. “It was one of our little arsenals we have,” said Woods. “We pitched the ball to our halfback. They come up for the sweep

because we run the ball a lot. He’s got a great arm, Brandon Williams, and just tossed it out for the touchdown.” While the game was one of Deer Valley’s bigger wins of the past few years, it’s also a bit of a wakeup call for a team that romped to easy victories in its first two games. “I think it will set us straight a little bit, probably put a little scare into the guys,” said Woods. “And they’ll understand preparation is real important, and we’ll go from there. Our team has persevered and the hard work and dedication we put into the football season had a lot to do with us staying in the game, keeping our thoughts right, staying focused. And, God willing, they fumbled the football and we recovered it, the field goal team ran out and kicked the field goal. Pretty amazing. That’s how national championships are won, that’s how state championships are won, that’s how football games are won, just regular ones in the middle of the season.” Deer Valley, which is now 3-0, next plays at home at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 2 against Rodriguez High of Fairfield.

Save money on health care As health care costs continue to rise, many Americans are paying more out of the family budget for medical care than in the past. In 2007, Americans spent nearly $268.6 billion in out-of-pocket expenses, according to the American Hospital Association. It might feel like these costs are out of your control, but there are things you can do to save money and still get quality health care. Here are a few tips:

Choose an appropriate facility • Urgent care versus same-day appointment: Many assume that the fastest way to see a doctor is to head to an urgent-care center – an expensive visit. Many physicians now hold open space for same-day appointments, so save money by calling your doctor’s office before heading off to urgent care. • Retail clinics can offer convenient, quick and affordable access to care for common medical conditions such as strep throat, ear infections and minor burns. They’re often located within department, drug or grocery stores. Most are open nights and weekends. Your health insurance might cover these visits, or offer them at discounted rates. Check your benefits documents or your health plan’s Web site for information. • The emergency room (ER) serves an important role in providing immediate care to people with serious, often life-threatening problems. However, many visits to the

ER are unnecessary, reducing the ER’s ability to help those with serious illnesses or injuries – and increasing costs for the rest of us. The national average cost for an ER visit is about $1,000. The average cost of an office visit is around $60.

Save on medications • Generic drugs contain the identical active chemical ingredients as their brand-name counterparts but can be much less expensive. Ask your doctor if generics are available for any of your medications, or if drugs similar to yours can treat your condition. On average, you can save $200 per prescription per year by using generics. • A formulary (or drug list) is a list of medications covered under your benefit plan. You usually pay less if your doctor prescribes a medication that’s on your health plan’s drug list. Before visiting your doctor, call your plan and ask if you pay less for medications on the list. If so, bring a copy of your plan’s drug list to your next doctor visit. • Many medications once available only by prescription are now available right off the shelf. Not only are those over-the-counter medications convenient (since they don’t require a prescription from your doctor); they can save you money. For more tips, visit www.cigna.com/learn4yourhealth. You’ll find a health care game, podcasts and interactive

educational courses on topics such as how to reduce your out-of-pocket costs, new health care options that save money and improve your health, and how to make sense of your health coverage plan. Every time you review a course, you’ll have a chance to receive free coupons to entertainment, food and retail destinations. You may also access the program from the CIGNA Facebook page or YouTube. – Courtesy of Family Features

Muir classes offer parenting solutions by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer A series of classes for parents of young children and teenagers is being offered this month at John Muir Health in Brentwood. Photo by Ruth Roberts

ent the way we were parented, and my job is to help parents learn a little more about themselves and how they discipline their children. These classes help them do that.” Welcher began teaching the Parent Project classes at John Muir in Brentwood after a career working with special-education students and their emotional problems in school districts throughout East County. “I worked in the Oakley and Liberty and Brentwood school districts and basically what I found was that I could work with the kids here at school,” said Welcher. “But the bigger issues were usually at home. I wanted to find a way to work with families, and that’s how I found the Parent Project.” Welcher offers two programs under the

Parent Project umbrella: Loving Solutions for parents of children 5 to 12, and Parent Project Senior for parents of teenagers. “Basically the (senior) program provides parents with methods for dealing with a number of issues, including alcohol, arguments and grades,” said Welcher. “It teaches parents how to out-will the strong-willed child. “The Loving Solutions is for younger children and helps parents identify rules and tools to help create structure and learn how to deal with challenging situations and implement timeouts effectively.” One important element the programs share is an emphasis on consistency, structure and love. “The number one thing for

Parenting is a job that comes without a handbook or employee manual. The hours are long, the pay is nonexistent and vacations are hard to come by. But as any parent will tell you, it’s also the most rewarding job you’ll ever have – and the toughest. Which is why, despite the best of intentions, there are times when parents find themselves unable to deal with a strongwilled child or teen. And when that occurs, it might be time to get some help. “Parenting is a difficult job, and that’s something that is universal,” said Gabriel Welcher, clinical outreach coordinator and Parent Project facilitator for John Muir Behavioral Health Center in Brentwood. “But the challenges are different for every parent, and the Parent Project program is a way for parents to learn more about themselves and how they parent their children.” Parent Project is a nationally recognized parenting program designed to help parents deal with the myriad challenges of raising children in today’s complex and fastpaced world. The program offers a series of classes for parents based on proven strategies for bringing discipline and order back to the family. “Kids are a product of their environment, and if they see yelling and arguing and screaming, then that is how they will react,” said Welcher. “We all tend to par-

parents to understand is consistency and follow-through,” said Welcher. “Without it there is no structure, and that applies to all children of all ages. Another important point is about love and affection. No matter how angry we are, they are still our children and we should love them no matter what.” Today’s world is a complex environment for young children and teens, especially given the new trends in prescription drug use and social networking, cyber-bullying and the impact of the media. Now, more than ever, said Welcher, parents must remain vigilant and proactive: “I’ve had parents come into my classes crying because they just don’t know what to do. And the first thing I tell them is not to give up, because the moment you do, that child is just going to get more deeply involved in something else. “All parents wants their kids to be happy, productive people, and no matter how bad things seem, there is always, always, a solution. Never give up; just keep moving forward.” The Loving Solutions classes (for children 5 to 12) begin at the John Muir Outpatient facility in Brentwood on Oct. 14 and is held once a week for seven consecutive weeks. The Parent Project (senior program for teens) follows at the same location in December and runs for 10 consecutive weeks. To sign up for the classes or for more information, call Welcher at 925-383-4669 or email gabriel.welcher@johnmuirhealth.com.

MILESTONES

OBITUARIES Josefina Ricardo Josefina Ricardo – “Chi Chi” to her grandchildren and “Cucha” to her friendly acquaintances – passed away from this life on Aug. 29 surrounded by the love of her immediate family. Her passing was the result of a battle with cancer that she bravely faced. A descendent of the beautiful island of the Dominican Republic, Josefina came to California to live with her adored daughter and grandchildren, residents of Brentwood. Josefina lived an accomplished life and accepted life’s challenges as tests of strength and patience. Her wisdom and positive aura will survive in the loving

memory of her beloved daughter, Rita Canelas, and proud grandchildren, Jennifer and Bryan Canelas. Josefina is survived by her family and friends dispersed throughout the country and the island of the Dominican Republic. Josefina touched the lives of many with her heart of gold and humble nature. Her generosity and wisdom will forever be valued by those who were privileged to know her. She was devoted to the Catholic Church and lived with the optimistic light through her everlasting faith. A celebration of Josefina’s life will be held at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church.
