Had proper structure reached Gaby Rodriguez earlier, the Deer Valley High School junior’s story might be different. Rodriguez was on a panel of former gang members who spoke at Saturday’s East County Gang Summit, organized by Contra Costa County District 5 Supervisor Federal Glover and held on Rodriguez’s campus. She moved from Nicaragua to the United States at the age of 7 and got involved in gangs shortly thereafter because it was what her cousins and friends were doing. She thought it was the norm. Rodriguez started dissoci-

ating with gangs at age 13 because she just got tired of the lifestyle. She credited the East County-based nonprofit One Day at a Time, which also held presentations at the summit, for helping her turn things around. Her grades have improved since she escaped from gang life. “I was so young, but then I had so many little kids that would look up to me,” Rodriguez said. “I didn’t want them to go through the same thing.” The summit focused on early prevention and better relations between parents, guardians and their children. At the day-long event, police officers and people from local nonprofits stressed the importance of families taking an active role

Highway project bid under estimate by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

The soft economy continues to mean good news for the Highway 4 widening project, as the low bid for widening the road from Somersville Road to Contra Loma Boulevard has come in nearly 30 percent less than expected. Antioch City Manager Jim Jakel announced at the City Council’s meeting Tuesday night that Walnut Creekbased R&L Brosamer Inc. submitted a bid earlier this month for about $35.7 million. According to Contra Costa Transportation Authority Director of Projects Susan Miller, the cost of the project was originally estimated at

“ It was a very competitive bid. I can say it did somewhat surprise me.

” Susan Miller, Contra Costa Transportation Authority $49.7 million. Miller said CalTrans has until Dec. 5 to accept or deny the bid. If everything goes smoothly, Miller said Brosamer has 55 days after CalTrans’ approval to start work, which will take roughly two years to complete. She added that Brosamer’s was one of 11 bids for the project. “It was a very competitive bid,” Miller said. “I can say it did somewhat surprise me. We have been trending low.”

The highway will be widened to four lanes in each direction, including a carpool lane, from Somersville Road to Contra Loma Boulevard. Construction will include train tracks in the median for eBART connecting Antioch with the Pittsburg/Bay Point station. Jakel said Brosamer also owns the land around the planned eBART station at Hillcrest Avenue, near where the Highway 4 expansion is slated to end.

Dentist Tracy Benhamou will be happy to take your Halloween candy this year in exchange for cash. Donated candy will be shipped to our troops overseas.

Cash for candy Dentist Tracy Benhamou is leading an anti-decay movement by giving away dollars and electric glowing toothbrushes in exchange for cavity-provoking candy this Halloween, offering trick-or-treaters a chance to cash in on unwanted treats. All little ghosts and goblins need to do is bring their excess candy to Oak Street Family Dental, 62 Oak St. in Brentwood, on Nov. 2 between 1 and 4 p.m. and they’ll receive $1 per pound of candy they bring in. All candy donations will be shipped to our troops overseas. “Ditch the candy – that’s what we’re saying,” said Benhamou. “Visiting your den-

tist twice a year and brushing daily are great preventative measures, but doing away with excess sweets altogether would really give your teeth a healthy boost. Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well. Plus, these glowing brushes we’re giving out are really cool. They’re like light sabers for your mouth.” Eating candy can also lead to hyperactivity and weight gain. In some cases, the wrong types of candy can also lead to broken teeth and damaged braces.

Mythic trickster stalks the snapshot I’d seen some weird stuff in the wild, but this was a first. I was minding my own business out on the trail – well, I was minding the business of a coyote I spotted loping my way. Took his picture; no big woop. He sauntered off, I turned around and Yow! Some guy was standing TAKE IT right behind me. Didn’t UTSIDE take long to figure out he wasn’t a hiker with a hankering for practical jokes. He was a demigod with a hankering for practical jokes: Ohlétteh (oh-let´-tay), the Coyote-man creator and trickster of Native GER American Miwok ERICKSON mythology. Oh, great.

O

PART TWO It was time to come to terms with so-called reality. Since I hadn’t been able to shake this stubbornly vivid dream, I might as well swing with it. The guy standing there, calling himself Ohlétteh, training his famished grey eyes on me, was evidently in no danger of dematerializing. I was stuck with him. “You know why I am here,” he said. It was a statement, not a question. I thought: This is my fevered fantasy and I’m gonna get my entertainment dollar’s worth. “Let me guess,” I said. “I committed some cosmic offense. I paired fish with red wine last night. No, wait – I

didn’t finish that last Brussel sprout on my plate.” I took a sideways glance at his malnourished eyes and decided to get off the subject of food and come straight to his point. “Uh, I took your picture.” “Correct,” said Ohlétteh, ignoring my sarcasms. “You recognize my name and you recognize your transgression. Surely you recognize the penance. That device slung around your neck – it holds a portion of my spirit. Give it to me.” Before I could prevent it, my hand

was peeling the camera strap off my neck. Wait a minute – I’d bagged a nice shot. Why should I surrender my camera without a fight? “What makes you think I stole a piece of your spirit?” I asked, stalling for time. “If you understood that,” said Ohlétteh smoothly, “you would never have taken that black box out here in the first place.” And he locked eyes with me for what seemed about a decade. “Ah, but I believe you do understand. That image

of me adds to the sum of the world. It takes something that is and makes from it something that had never been, as when I shook the tules and the land rose from the water. You also are a creator – of sorts. The question is: to whom does the image belong? You or me? I say me.” And he stretched his arm toward me, palm up. I felt like a gopher stalked by a … well, a coyote. If I couldn’t outrun his see Trickster page 7A

box. “You’re saying the picture is an instrument of falsehood, not truth?â€? I said, pressing my disadvantage. “Hey, you’re The Trickster. Which am I supposed to believe: you or the picture?â€? OhlĂŠtteh licked his thin lips. A terrible intelligence and terrible hunger crouched behind those eyes. I knew I was playing a dangerous game. I also knew from mythology that the gods aren’t omniscient. They can be deceived by other gods – even humans. But tricking The Trickster? Was that possible? And if possible, was that such a bright idea? I took the plunge: “If I tell you a story, a story that pleases you, will you let me keep the black box?â€? He raised an eyebrow. I’d struck a resonant chord. “I’ll make it a story of cosmic significance,â€? I said. In keeping with my previous remarks, I had no idea what I was talking about. But I had a plan – something about removing the memory stick from my camera while The Trickster was distracted. He could keep the camera. OhlĂŠtteh stretched out his arms and raised his head. “When Silver Fox and I danced the world into being,â€? he said, and lowered his eyes at mine, “that was of cosmic significance. I’ve heard many stories, and told many more. My standards are high.â€? He smiled, and I caught the glint of saliva on one of his fangs. “Tell me your story. And make it – how do you say? – a humdinger.â€? To be concluded next week. For Part One, visit www.thepress.net.

single-minded pursuit of my camera, I’d dive into the nearest gopher hole. “So you’re saying I shouldn’t be out here taking pictures, stealing the world’s spirit? Why shouldn’t I steal that spirit and share it with others?â€? He seemed to stifle a chuckle, as if he saw right through my ruse but was willing to play along. Then he knelt, scooped a handful of dirt and let it run through his fingers. “The people who once walked this valley had a word: ‘wachichu’: ‘to take the fat.’ Here’s the fat of the matter,â€? he said. “That you stole my image merely offends me; it threatens nothing. That thing you strap around your neck like a talisman: it is a greater danger to you than me.â€? Before I could digest his thought, he stood and said, “It is not only what you see but what you fail to see that creates your world. You are like Wekwek the falcon – always darting around; always in a rush. Your black box makes you feel, ‘I must crest that ridge so I can steal an image before the light fails; hurry home to tell the story.’ You spend too much time marking the passage of time. You look at and seldom into what you see. It is your own spirit that is trapped in the black box.â€? I looked away, to where the landscape wasn’t a wavering halo behind OhlĂŠtteh’s head. I knew he was right – right about the camera and me. Yet his rightness didn’t make me more willing to hand over my precious black

foreclosures until the banks’ foreclosure processes can be reviewed. Some lenders are even voluntary holding off on foreclosures for an indefinite period to do internal reviews. This may be a temporary paperwork snag that gets resolved quickly, or it may be the start of a major breakdown in our financial industry. If lenders can’t foreclose, and class-action lawsuits spring up to reverse prior foreclosures, hold onto your hats. I predict at the very least we’ll see fewer foreclosure actions in our near future. This may also make lenders more willing to approve a loan mod or short sale. I DON’T think we are all going to get free and clear houses out of this, so I wouldn’t hold out for that if I were you. Most lenders will continue the foreclosure process if the borrower isn’t paying, they may just stop short of the actual final foreclosure step. But once the legal hurdles are cleared, they’ll still foreclose. If you have questions on this or any other real estate topic, call me at (925) 240-MOVE (6683).

What started out as a whisper in a few remote mortgage blogs has turned into a firestorm across front pages of major newspapers and the steps of most state and even the US Capitol buildings. If the allegations are true, it looks like many lenders were taking some legal shortcuts in their rush to foreclose on homes the last few years. There are many issues at play here. One of the biggest is where the foreclosing lender can’t prove they actually own the loan (the “show-me-the-note� defense). Another issue deals with questionable notary signatures on foreclosure documents and bank employees not reviewing the documents carefully (one guy reviewed 10,000 files a month). Another issue deals with a company called MERS that was “nominated� by many lenders to stand in their place at the County courthouse so they could sell the loan off quicker and easier. But some judges aren’t letting MERS foreclose on homes since they aren’t the ones that own the loan (this one issue could affect millions of home loans). Many politicians and attorney generals (most of them up for re-election next month) are aggressively calling for moratoriums on some (or all)

Superintendent enjoys his new role – quietly

Deer Valley High wins Dow grant Deer Valley High School has been selected by the Dow Community Advisory Panel (CAP) to receive one of four grants offered this year as part of the company’s Community Grant Program. The $3,500 grant will be used to fund an online database for the school’s Science Research Academy. The academy offers students a motivational venue for learning about science through scientific research and outreachbased projects based on instruction in earth science, astronomy, biology, chemistry, engineering, math, space science and other subjects. For more information about the academy, visit www.espaceacademy.com. Grants were also conferred on Bay Point’s Delta View Elementary School, the Los Medanos College Foundation and the Success Through Self Academy, based in Pittsburg. The successful applicants designed projects that combined all of Dow’s criteria, education, science and the environment, and would reach a large number of residents and make a lasting impact. CAP members were impressed by the breadth of the applications and expressed the hope that the ideas won’t die from lack of funding. Projects were ranked based on sustainability, overall impact, benefit to the community, emphasis and the strength of their partnerships. “We sifted through a lot of great applications,” said Eva Garcia, a member of the Dow CAP. “We didn’t set out to pick just ones that focused on school kids, but these are the ones that rose to the top. They hit home – impacting students in a very tangible, hands-on way and, in most cases, for multiple years. I know the CAP is excited to see how these funds will make a difference.”

Halloween is still around the corner, but members of the Heritage High School drama club, Rising Stars, will be trick-ortreating this Saturday in Brentwood from 2:30 p.m. to dusk. But they aren’t looking for candy. As part of Trick or Treat so Kids Can Eat, a program sponsored by the International Thespian Society, Heritage drama students will be going door to door in western Brentwood – communities such as Shadow Lakes, Deer Ridge and other neighborhoods in which Heritage students reside – trick-ortreating for nonperishable food donations. Last year, the students collected 530 pounds of food, which they donated to Brentwood’s Shepherd’s Gate, a shelter for battered and homeless women and children. The Heritage effort was a part of 280 troupes nationwide that collected more than 330,000 pounds of food, and this year the students have set an even higher goal. Partnering with the Heritage S Club, a youth version of Soroptimist International, Heritage Theater Director Chris Fallows said the students are aiming to collect 2,000 pounds of goods this year.

Eight residents have applied for a seat on the Byron-Brentwood-Knightsen Cemetery District board. The appointment will eventually be decided by the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors.

Eight contend for cemetery seat by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Eight candidates have applied for a seat on the Byron-Brentwood-Knightsen Cemetery Board, a usually inconspicuous position that has become a political football. The cemetery board application process was reopened last month when it was discovered the position had not been properly advertised by the office of the clerk of the Board

of Supervisors. By the time the filing period ended this week, eight candidates had applied for the position: Patrick McHenry, D. Bailey Neff, Robin Pastor, David Piepho, John Quinn, Vickey Rinehart, Johnny Staton and Martin Young. Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor had applied for the seat but withdrew after discovering there would be a conflict of interest between the cemetery board and his city seat. see Cemetery page 13A


OCTOBER 15, 2010

Cemetery from page 12A The controversy over the empty cemetery board seat began last month when David Piepho, husband of Supervisor Mary Piepho, applied for the seat along with Brentwood resident Quinn. Piepho currently serves on the county’s powerful Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO), which oversees land boundaries and annexation issues. Piepho also sits on the Discovery Bay Community Services District Board, but is not seeking re-election this year. An appointment to another special district such as the cemetery board would enable Piepho to stay on LAFCO. Supervisor Piepho, who normally oversees the appointment of directors to the independent special district board, recused herself from the process when her husband originally decided to apply for the seat. Board of Supervisors Chairman John Gioia then took over the review of the applications and was set to award Piepho the seat on Sept. 14. Following public complaints and a scathing newspaper editorial charging nepotism, however, the supervisors removed the item from the agenda, saying they wanted to ensure that procedural protocols had been followed during the appointment process. The issue was referred to the Public Protection Committee, which consists of Gioia and Supervisor Federal Glover, and the committee is scheduled to meet on Monday, Oct. 18. “The committee will be looking to consider whether there should be a policy regarding the appointment of family members to a committee or board,” said Gioia. “And we will also be furthering the process of the appointments to the cemetery board … I can tell you

COMMUNITY

that the committee is going to make a recommendation to the full board regarding this issue, but that recommendation is not going to come out of the meeting on Monday.” Gioia did not say when the seat would be filled. “There are much more important issues than this (cemetery board appointment),” said Gioia. “I’m dealing with violent crimes in Richmond and other difficult issues. This is (just) a procedural issue and we’ll get through it.” One of the applicants said he didn’t care for the political controversy surrounding the seat. “I have several relatives there (in the cemetery) including my great-great grandparents, my parents and my wife, and I’m going to end up there too,” said McHenry, who for decades was the owner of the Brentwood Funeral Home and who has maintained his mortician’s license in his retirement. “But I also had some concerns that certain people were trying to make this a political issue and that did not sit well with me. I see it (the appointment) as a service to the community.” As for the ongoing debate over the possible Piepho appointment, Glover said it comes with the territory. “There’s a lot of speculation in terms of what this appointment means for certain people,” said Glover. “And yes, it’s a headache – a major headache – but we’ll get through it. It’s just one of the bumps in the road.” The Public Protection Committee will meet Oct. 18 at 10:30 a.m. in the county administration building, 651 Pine St., Room 101 in Martinez.

Don’t worry – this ghastly operation is part of the fun at Sanctuary of Evil in Oakley. Get ready to be scared silly at the annual haunted house, open now through Halloween.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Trick-or-Treat Remember when you couldn’t wait to go trick-or-treating? As a “kid” – I’ve seen teenagers as old as sixteen still trying to collect candy throughout certain neighborhoods – the anticipation Halloween night brought during the actual day was next to impossible to duplicate. Planning your candy route with your friends, checking the batteries in your flashlights, and making sure you had the perfect pillowcase were all part of ensuring you were as prepared as possible. Put the shear thought of a king size Hershey’s bar into a child’s mind and you’d be amazed at the preparation that begins to take place…you can practically see their wheels turning. Years then pass, plastic fireman helmets turn into the real thing, little princesses turn into Miss America – we all grow up. Our chase for that Hershey’s bar turns into a race for the gym as we scramble to make a spinning class before taking our own children out trick-or-treating. Our priorities shift, but our attempt to prepare to the best of our ability stays the same. Focus that preparation into becoming a homeowner and you’re sure not to miss out on that king size chocolate bar. With all of the consumer protection “safeguards” put into place throughout 2010 buyers no longer need worry about ending up with a single piece of sour-patch candy for a lender. All loan officers, known professionally as Mortgage Loan Originators (MLO), can now be tracked nationwide by their unique National Mortgage Licensing

System (NMLS) number. Consumers can easily verify many crucial pieces of information about their potential MLO with a few easy clicks of their mouse; the last 10 years of employment history, license status, location of legal brick-and-mortar business and whether or not the MLO is engaged in any other businesses are accessible at www. nmlsconsumeraccess.org. If you cannot find your MLO through this system of checks and balances they are not a licensed professional and should immediately be thrown away like a piece of already unwrapped candy. Once your decision is made, and you’ve determined the MLO whom you’ll be allowing to handle your financing, it is time to move onto the next step of preparation. Ensuring your financial documents are in order will also ensure your MLO is able to quickly and efficiently review the information with you. Plan on bringing your last month’s worth of paycheck stubs, two month’s worth of bank statements, and the last two filings of your personal – and corporate if you’re selfemployed – federal tax returns to your initial sit-down. By having this information in order, and easily accessible, it will allow your pre-approval process to run smoother than your Halloween candy route ever could have. If you have any real estate lending related questions or concerns, or wish to speak with a Streamline expert, don’t hesitate to write me at tfreymortgages@yahoo. com or call me directly on my cell phone, (925) 726-1444. – Advertisement

Innocence, strength carved in bronze by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Photo courtesy of Brian Keith

Brian Keith’s latest sculpture, “Reign of Grace,” depicts the plight of Indian women who have been sold into India’s sex-slave trade.

Brian Keith says his inspiration was clear and its arrival long overdue, yet when he looks at the finished form of his latest sculpture, he admits he still worries. “I always hope that my latest piece will be my best, but when I look at this one I think: how can I tell this story with the appropriate meaning and respect,” said Keith. “How do I show the subtle nuances of innocence and strength?” The Discovery Bay sculptor is understandably daunted given the serious subject matter – slavery and prostitution – but in his latest work Keith has melded the spirit, resilience and unwavering grace of a segment of India’s most destitute population and created a tribute to the human spirit. It’s called “Reign of Grace,” a bronze sculpture depicting a young East Indian woman engaged in a childlike dance – lifting with one hand the flowing folds of her skirt as if in mid-twirl while holding in the other a parasol sheltering her from the rain and symbolically moving her into the reign of grace. “This is woman is dancing in an effort to restore her childhood and her innocence despite all that she has been through,” said Keith of the sculpture. “I tried to capture the essence of her hope, beauty and joy; her transformation into grace.” Keith’s own journey of grace began five years ago, just after the tsunami struck

some of the poorest regions of India. Embarking on a ministry with his brother and sister-in-law’s church in Southern California, and accompanied by his wife Lanisa, Keith’s group was invited to fellowship with a group of women who had been sold into sex slavery and were living as prostitutes in the country’s red-light district. Moved by the plight of women forced into a life of poverty and desperation, Keith’s sisterin-law Shannon founded the International Princess Project, a nonprofit organization working to free these enslaved women and support them on the path to a new life. “It’s hard for us (in the United States) to believe that the sex-slave trade is real, but it is,” said Keith. “These women are forced into horrific situations not by choice and with no way out. We spoke with many of these women who attended our ministry with their pimps, if you can believe that, and it just tugged at my heart, all of our hearts, to see their situation. ‘Reign of Grace’ is just a small part of the whole movement.” But it’s a movement with a purpose. With the first of the sculptures nearly complete (there will be a limited edition series of 500 sculptures), Keith will be donating 50 percent of the proceeds back to the International Princess Project. The money will be used to liberate and re-acclimate the women into a safe and productive life. “While we were there (in 2005) we actually met with the pimps and asked them how much it would cost to buy these

women out of slavery,” said Keith. “And their number was $1,000 a person. So we rounded up enough money while we were there to buy 11 women and get them to safety and a facility where they could live and be safe and restore their dignity. “The problem is that in India, the families of these women don’t always welcome them back, even though they were taken against their will,” said Keith. “So the Princess Project, with the help of other organizations, works to give them the opportunity to make a new life, a new start.” And one way they are given a new start is through Punjammies. Handmade by women who have been rescued from the slave trade, Punjammies are soft cotton, woven pajamas crafted in bright colors and for sale around the world. All proceeds from the sale of Punjammies are used to support the women who made them. “It’s understandable that it (the number of enslaved women in India) could be overwhelming if you look at the numbers,” said Keith. “But anytime you can bring awareness of something with a heart of understanding, it makes a difference. If just one person’s life is changed by our help and the help of others, it has been worth it.” For purchase information on the “Reign of Grace” limited-edition series, call Keith at 925-516-0631.

Half a loaf better than none

Editor: As a political conservative, I am normally against any increase in taxation. However, the dire circumstances of our economic situation in Antioch have made it necessary for me to reconsider my position. I have always been and continue to be actively involved in our Neighborhood Watch program. As such, I witness firsthand the devastatingly negative impact that the lack of manpower at the police department has on public safety. To exacerbate the situation, we are informed that unless the city can find other sources of income, 10 additional police officers will be laid off. This brings the police manpower down to an unacceptable level. Measure P is a means to raise the income level of the city so that we can maintain, if not improve, the manpower situation. We desperately need this funding in order to maintain the level of service in order to safeguard our neighborhood from an onslaught of criminal elements. Funding from Measure P will be for our city only, not to be shared with the county or state. Let’s be realistic: Measure P funding will not be used only for the police department, but for other services as well. However, if you look at the city’s budget, 65 percent of the budget is allotted to the police department. So if you follow the same share of the pie chart, the majority of the funding will be spent on the police. If one needs convincing, the Antioch Police Officers Association (APOA) has endorsed Measure P on its website, www. antiochpoa.com. To me, this is half a loaf of bread – not as good as the whole loaf, but much better than no loaf at all. I am voting for Measure P on the November ballot and I hope you will too. Hans Ho Antioch

brought forth by Barbara Herendeen in the Oct. 8 issue of the Antioch Press and urge voters to vote Yes on Measure P. While taxes are the last thing anyone would like to shell out more money for, it is critical we keep police services and road improvement projects at an maintained and sustainable level. Just in 2010 alone, we have seen an increase in homicides, robberies, burglaries and vehicle theft, all while arrest rates for juveniles and adults have drastically decreased (Source: City of Antioch Crime Statistics). It is crucial the police department does not suffer further cuts and that we work on hiring more police officers rather than laying them off. In addition, Antioch’s roadways are a disaster in comparison to Brentwood and Pittsburg, where you are more likely to find neatly manicured landscaping and smoothly paved roads. Prior to 2001, I fondly remember Antioch as being a Mecca for middle-class life in East County; now it has the aesthetic appeal of a third-world country, with destroyed roads, abandoned properties and higher crimes infiltrating our city. Measure P would add a half-cent tax per dollar on every purchase made in our city. On a $100 purchase, that would amount to an additional 50 cents. Are you naysayers telling me you would not want to sacrifice an extra 50 cents for a $100 purchase in order to protect our city and keep it well maintained? While our current and former city councils have mismanaged funds, poorly planned development in our city and are the main culprits to blame for this mess, it is time to pause (not stop) pointing fingers at them and do what we can do at the moment to restore what was once a beautiful and safe community. Vote Yes on Measure P. Josh Stewart Antioch

Moore detached from spirit of community

Editor: Reggie Moore is seeking re-election to the Antioch City Council and is asking for our vote, but I question whether he deserves our vote. Mr. Moore says he supports our police and is committed to fighting crime, but he is the same Reggie Moore who during a 2009 Antioch Quality of Life Forum tried to rationalize the actions of street thug Lovelle Mixon, who gunned down four Oakland police officers. Mr. Moore says he is for fiscal responsibility, but with Antioch on the brink of insolvency and with city workers being laid off, he wants to spend $40,000 of public money to host a Halloween party. Mr. Moore says he is seeking solutions to Antioch’s financial shortfall and so

he supports a half-cent sales tax increase (Antioch’s sales tax rate would become 9¾ percent) even though sales taxes are regressive and would hurt our poorest residents the most. Mr. Moore says he likes to get out in the community and get a firsthand look at what is happening in Antioch, yet he has never been seen at a First Saturday cleanup, or a Coffee With the Cops meeting. He failed to attend the 9/11 memorial walk around the mall and has never been at any of the East County Military Family and Friends events. It seems clear that we cannot afford a disinterested, detached politician such as Reggie Moore for four more years. So I join the growing chorus of Antioch voters in proclaiming No More Moore!

Hack, Luevano for Antioch school board

Editor: Antioch students deserve a school board that is passionate about education and that’s why, as a teacher, I am voting for Gary Hack and Angel Luevano for the Antioch School Board. Thank you. Karen Vargas Antioch

Heather Partida for Brentwood school board

Editor: My name is Heather Partida and I am running for the Brentwood Elementary School Board. I graduated from UC Davis with a degree in political science and work as the executive assistant to the superintendent of the Oakley school district. I have two daughters who attend school in Brentwood and we absolutely love it. I have regularly volunteered in their classrooms and am active with the parents’ club. The wonderful teachers we have encountered have given the gift of reading and the joy of learning to my children. The Brentwood district has provided so much for my family and I am ready to step forward and give back. As parents, our kids are directly impacted by every program cut or position lost. More of us should be involved in the decisions that directly impact our families. I look forward to providing a voice for parents in that decision-making process. I invite you to learn more about me at www. heatherpartida.com. If elected, I can assure you that I will take a top-down strategy when balancing the district budget. I will not vote for raises while cuts are being made. I want to get the word out to parents about making sure their kids are at school every day and letting them know how costly it is when kids miss school for vacations.

The Brentwood board should really be an active part of our community, and I would like to bridge that gap for all of us. I am eager, qualified and asking for your vote. Heather Partida Brentwood

Hit the ground running, not arguing

Editor: CSD Director Mark Simon’s letter “Mailer is misleading” in the Oct. 1 issue of the Press demonstrates clearly why communications between the board and the people is so poor. Jonathan Silver’s mailer said, “He will help Mark and Ray make a difference.” That is a statement of what Jonathan will do. It in no way states or even implies that Mark and Ray have endorsed Jonathan. Both Mark and Ray should be commended for going through all the problems they have been faced with over the past years. These are three willing and able bodies that we need on the board. Let’s not create a problem before they even get together. E.G. “Bud” Kyle Discovery Bay

Thanks, David

Editor: About a month ago in the Discovery Bay Press there was an article regarding the longtime CSD director and former president David Piepho’s decision not to run for another term for CSD. We met David four years ago at one of the CSD meetings. Since then we have been attending the CSD meetings a majority of the time. For several years David has impressed us in many ways. His good knowledge and endless energy made a big difference in Discovery Bay. In our observation, over the last four years David has always been prepared for the agenda items with his questions and valuable comments. By listening to him, one can always tell he takes his public service very seriously and cares a great deal for his community and its residents. We would like to thank David for his excellent public service in the Discovery Bay CSD. He and his wife, Supervisor Mary Piepho, have been great assets for this town. We wish him good luck in his future and would like to see him serving at another public service. Ray and Reyhan Shepherd Discovery Bay

Fundraiser brings Hammer to town Mountain View Christian Center of Oakley, 10 Bay Area taekwondo schools plus music icon MC Hammer are coming together for the Kick-AThon For Humanity to raise funds for a struggling Antioch family. John Platt lost his three-month battle with cancer on Sept. 15, and now his wife, Florence, and two young children, Ryen and Kayla, are in danger of losing their home and business. Both children will participate in the Kick-A-Thon to honor their father. The event will showcase students from each school making as many kicks as possible in a two-minute period. Rapper MC Hammer is scheduled to attend the event in support of the cause and will be presented with a humanitarian award. Master Johnny Kang of Kang’s Taekwondo Academy in Antioch pulled together the support of nine other schools to initiate this one-of-a-kind fundraiser.

“I have kids of my own and can only imagine what the Platts are going through right now,” said Kang. “I’m pleased this event will help them on a financial level. But I’m just as pleased so many kids, families and individuals can come together, compassionately and generously, in support of our fellow man. It’s a profound lesson for the kids and an extraordinary act of love.” The Kick-A-Thon For Humanity will be held Saturday, Oct. 16 at 10 a.m. in Mountain View Christian Center, 5000 Amaryllis St. in Oakley. Children who would like to participate in the fundraiser can obtain a sponsor sheet at Mountain View Christian Center or Kang’s Taekwondo Academy, 1368 Sunset Drive in Antioch. For more details, call Kang at 925-252-5425 or e-mail kangstkd@ gmail.com.

Letters from page 16A In his opening remarks, candidate Silver announced that if elected, he would immediately take steps to stop the wastewater fines currently being levied against the Town of Discovery Bay. As vice president of the DB CSD Board, I can state for a fact that there have been no fines levied against the Town of Discovery Bay for well over a year. Next, candidate Silver claimed the CSD board never informed the community that a 16,400-gallon wastewater spill had occurred in June of 2010. He claimed the board did not take appropriate action in dealing with the spill and that the spill could have been prevented if the board had been more proactive in its maintenance procedures. Not one word of Mr. Silver’s statement is true. On the day of the spill, Virgil Koehne, along with employees from Veolia Water, took immediate action to notify all residents who were affected by the spill. There were signs placed at strategic locations, door hangers left for every involved resident who was not at home, along with employees of both the Town of Discovery Bay and Veolia Water walking door-to-door outside of the area immediately affected in order to inform concerned residents as to what had taken place. The leak was fixed promptly and proper notification was sent out in a timely manner. I am proud of the way our CSD board and town staff handled this unfortunate incident. I would also like to

point out that there were no fines levied against the Town of Discovery Bay in relation to this incident. Mr. Silver went on to state that the CSD board should have subscribed to a Code Red notification system that once activated would alert the community to occurrences such as the June, 2010 spill, and that if elected, he would push for such a subscription. If candidate Silver had attended a single CSD meeting before deciding to run for election, he would have known that the CSD board decided against the Code Red system due to the fact that it didn’t fit the needs of the Town of Discovery Bay. Candidate Silver announced that he was in possession of the solution to the issue of fire station closures. Mr. Silver has not attended a single meeting of the fire protection committee, nor has he offered this solution to the county Board of Supervisors. Am I safe to assume that Mr. Silver will only offer this solution if elected to the CSD board? It concerns me that Mr. Silver has never voiced his concerns at a CSD meeting, nor has he approached any member of the board to seek clarification of the false statements he made during the candidate forum. I’m surprised that he chose to speak out against the very board he hopes to serve on without a single fact in his possession. Simply put, I can not support Jonathan Silver for election to the Community Services District board. Mark Simon Discovery Bay

Why You Should Consider a Short Sale Versus a Foreclosure by Joan Grimes, Esq. When a person is behind on their home loan, it is easy to get discouraged and think that a foreclosure sale will be better than a short sale. It will be easier to walk away and just let the Bank take back the property. However, all too often, walking away from a property is not the best option. First, the borrower is responsible for the property until it reverts to the Bank at the trustee sale or is sold by to a third party at the trustee sale. The time between walking away and the trustee sale can be months or in some cases, years. During those months, the upkeep of the property including maintenance of the property is still the responsibility of the borrower. The borrower is also personally liable for homeowners’ dues, homeowners insurance and any charges levied by the city for failure to maintain the property. Instead of moving out, the borrower could have put the property up for short sale and continued to live in the property without paying the mortgage and saving for their next place. Second, it will take longer to qualify for a new home loan if the property is foreclosed. Fannie Mae and FHA have made it clear that both will look more favorably on a short sale versus a foreclosure. The Borrower will be eligible for credit to purchase a home in 2 years from completion date of a short sale whereas it could be 5 years from date of the foreclosure sale is completed. Third, a short sale may reduce personal liability and tax liability on the property. This may be especially true if the borrower does not qualify for bankruptcy. Even if a person needs to file bankruptcy, we believe a short sale after a bankruptcy will be better for a person’s credit and make it easier to purchase another home in the

future. However, extreme caution should be used in proceeding with a short sale on a stated income loan if the borrower gave less than honest information as part of original the loan application. On a short sale, the lender will require release of financial information including prior tax returns which may expose the borrower additional liability instead of reducing liability. Deciding to do a short sale is big decision and may have significant legal and tax consequences. Therefore, prior to starting a short sale (1) determine the affect of the short sale on your credit, (2) is there any personal liability on a lien after the short sale and (3) is there any tax liability due to the short sale. In conclusion, a short sale versus a foreclosure may be the right decision for you. However, a short sale can have serious consequences which should be analyzed by a real estate or bankruptcy attorney. 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.

This year’s program, “California On My Mind,” will feature a presentation by Michelle Richmond, author of this year’s CityRead selection, “The Year of Fog.” Richmond’s bittersweet novel about a child’s disappearance has been captivating Brentwood and Discovery Bay readers this month. Through the CityRead program, copies of “The Year of Fog” have been available at various locations in Brentwood and Discovery Bay.

Wagma and Frank Safi, left, converted the real estate downturn into an opportunity, opening their Styled Homes Consignment furniture store in Oakley for high-end, gently used furnishings. Above, this collection of antique pillboxes is among the treasures to be found at Styled Homes Consignment. Homes Consignment opened its doors to the public in July. Styled Homes Consignment will consign any high-quality piece in very good to excellent condition, regardless of style. The showroom is a treasure trove of unique furniture and décor for every room in the house. “You never know what we’ll have,” said Frank. The Safis receive their pieces from a variety of clients, including homeowners, estate handlers and gallery owners. Some of their clients have stories similar to her own: they are either in the process of a short sale or

foreclosure and are looking to sell their furniture and décor in an effort to recoup some of the loss. “We’re here to help them,” said Wagma. “We know what they’re going through; we know how hard it is.” Consignment benefits buyers who can find one-of-a-kind pieces for a fraction of the cost of full retail. “We have all types coming through here,” said Wagma of her buyers, noting that there’s no “typical” buyer. Buyers range from couples who have just bought their first home to empty-nesters looking to

redecorate. “We can help them find just the right piece to furnish their home.” Some of the pieces available on one occasion included an Oriental-style lacquer bar, an antique harp and a collection of ceramic pillboxes. Wagma encourages customers to buy a piece rather than think about it too long. “You never know; the next customer may buy it and you may never see it again!” Styled Homes Consignment, open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., is located at 3330 Main St. in Oakley, next to Centro Mart. The phone number is 925-679-3700.

As East County families continue to weather the economic storm, it can be hard to see the silver lining in the clouds. But entrepreneurs Wagma and Frank Safi are proof that sometimes a sad ending can be the inspiration for an exciting new beginning. Admirers of art and quality home décor, Wagma and Frank had amassed a collection of fine pieces for their five-bedroom home. Unfortunately, the economic downturn forced the Safis to sell their house in a short sale. As they downsized their belongings, Wagma held a moving sale in which she sold off her home furnishings for far less than they were worth. She knew she could have made more money on her furniture if she had sold on consignment rather than a moving sale. Rather than dwell on the negative, Wagma decided to focus on the positive. “For every door that closes, another opens,” she said, smiling. She was inspired to open her own consignment store in order to help other homeowners in a similar situation. As Wagma and Frank were driving through Oakley one day, they saw an available storefront on Main Street. They stopped in to talk to the landlord about the storefront and the rest soon fell into place. Styled

Brentwood removes poisoned trees by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Brentwood maintenance crews removed six dead sycamores along Balfour Road this week, nearly five months after unknown vandals poisoned the decadesold trees. And while those behind the crime might have won the battle, city officials insist they haven’t won the war. “We’re not giving into the vandals; we’re not letting them win. We’re replanting,” said Roger Stromgren, parks maintenance manager for the City of Brentwood. “It’s a shame that one warped individual could do such damage. It’s just a shame.” The 20-year-old trees, located along Balfour Road near Claremont Drive, were found to have been poisoned in May following a routine inspection by the parks department. One-inch holes had been drilled into four trees, and subsequent lab tests revealed they had been filled with a poison similar to the chemicals found in the over-the-counter weed-killer Roundup. But because the root systems of the trees were so intertwined, Stromgren believes the two remaining healthy trees became infected with the same toxin as well. “We began to notice the two trees on either side of the others had begun to fail and we’re guessing the Round-up went into the roots,” said Stromgren. “So when we got out there we saw that we had to take out the six trees.” The good news, however, is that crews are preparing to replant six new sycamores in the same spot within the next week or two. Although Stromgren said he

Of course.” Construction at Loveridge Road started in June and should take about three years, Miller said. That segment will also include a reconstruction of the Loveridge Road interchange. The widening project comes in five phases: from Loveridge Road to

wished the new trees could be fully grown sycamores, he’s content with settling for semi-mature saplings. “Oh, I would have loved to put in new, fully grown trees but those cost around $10,000 apiece,” said Stromgren. “So what we’re putting in instead are 24inch box trees, around 12 to 15 feet tall, that run around $300 apiece. They’re not as big as the original ones but they are sig-

Somersville Road, then to Contra Loma Boulevard, A Street/Lone Tree Way, Hillcrest Avenue and ending near the Bypass. Miller said CCTA would start taking bids for the widening from Contra Loma Boulevard to A Street early next year. The project has been estimated to cost more than $500 million, a majority of the funding coming from Contra Costa County Sales Tax Measures C and J, and should be finished by the end of 2014. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Corrections A recent article in The Press regarding the Discovery Bay CSD and school board candidates forum reported that organizers had confirmed Byron Union School Board candidate Elaine Landro would be attending the event on Oct. 6. However, Landro was out of town prior to the announcement of the forum and had never informed the organizers she would be present at the event. Also, October’s history mystery historical postcard photo fea-

ture included an incorrect date for the earthquake that damaged the building’s tower. The date of that temblor was 1868. The first person who provides substantial information about the individuals in the photograph – which can be seen at www.thepress.net – will win two tickets to the John Marsh Historic Trust Gala on Sunday, Oct. 17.

nificantly bigger than your typical plantings.” Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor, who has continued to be an outspoken voice against the vandalism, said he’s pleased that the trees will be replaced but remains vigilant in his desire to find the culprits. “I’m still very interested in getting some information on this if we can,” said Taylor. “I’m glad they (the trees) are be-

ing replaced but it still just breaks my heart. If anyone has any word or knowledge about this, they are welcome to call me on my home phone or call the police. This is an ill that will bother me for a long time to come.” Taylor can be reached at 925-6349539. The number for the Brentwood Police Department is 925-634-6911. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Summit from page 1A

“ Kids flourish in

warning signs. East County officers expressed a desire to work with other agencies to prevent gangs from becoming as much of a problem as other parts of the Bay Area. Antioch police Lt. Robin Kelley said there were 166 gang-related incidents in the city last year and 120 so far this year. According to Pittsburg police Lt. Brian Addington, his city saw one gang-related homicide in 2006, two in 2007, none in 2008, two in 2009 and one so far in 2010. “An important thing is to network the different resources in the community together on different endeavors, and one of them is gang awareness and gang prevention,” said Antioch police chief Jim Hyde. “When there’s less jobs for kids, there’s less hope, so they turn to other things that provide them with recognition – albeit bad recognition. Kids flourish in structure. The problem is: gangs provide structure.” In another seminar, parents received tips on how to spot children’s involvement in risky behavior. Antioch resident Robert Hurtado, who spent some time in gangs and in and out of jail, felt that the message of the summit was spot-on. Hurtado is trying prevent his children from making the same mistakes he did. Local nonprofit organizations such

structure. The problem is: gangs provide structure.

Antioch Police Chief Jim Hyde as the Pittsburg-based People Who Care focused on helping young people make better decisions. Members of PWC performed a mock group setting, where students were given tough situations – such as a confrontation with relatives or friends – and asked to come up with a peaceful solution. “Everybody coming together and reaching out to others to help make the right decision – that really helps,” said Tyrell Burks, a senior at Pittsburg High and a member of PWC Glover was pleased with the event, which attracted a couple hundred parents, teens and other members of the community. He last organized a summit in Pittsburg in 2007, but that was more informational. “I think that was a good first step,” said Glover, “and this will give an opportunity for the community as a whole, regardless of where they come from (to know) that everyone’s together, and enter into a dialogue.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Patriot setter a coach on the court by Michael Dixon Correspondent

For Heritage High varsity girls volleyball head coach Janet Hannigan and junior setter Chelsey Hancock, the adage about the pupil becoming the teacher has come true. Hancock honed her volleyball skills at the same type of clinics that she now helps Hannigan run. Because of her strong leadership skills, Hancock was named by teammates as captain this season, an honor she shares with senior outside hitter Edlyn Cotas. Hannigan describes Hancock’s leadership ability as appropriately demanding. This sentiment was echoed by Hancock, who feels that staying a leader on the court will help her play at the next level. Hancock was the main setter on last year’s more offensively diverse team. This year, her coach has decided to run the offense almost exclusively through Hancock. “She definitely goes all out for everything and gives full effort all of the time,” junior defensive specialist Ashleigh Reed said. “She’s very clear with her teammates on directions and communicates well with them. She also just has that passion and determination in her where she just wants to win all the time.” The team that Hancock set for as a sophomore was an experienced group that

Heritage High junior setter Chelsey Hancock became a vital member of this season’s team, establishing herself as a leader on the court. reached the second round of the North Coast Section playoffs. Hancock proved her toughness to Hannigan and her teammates in a five-game match on the road against Liberty. Despite her lack of experience and the quality of the opponent, Hancock stayed cool under pressure as a server. These are the same qualities that her coaches say make her a good setter. Similar to a basketball point guard, a

setter will not dominate the scoring. She is responsible for putting the ball in a position so her teammates can spike it home. Hancock has averaged just over five assists through 40 match games played this season. “Chelsey’s really good at taking control in a positive way – she’s a really see Patriot page 23B

Foulger win caps speedway season by Jack Menges Correspondent

GO

Antioch Speedway dirt modified champion Troy Foulger comes off a good weekend of auto racing in which he posted a victory and second-place finish in two main events. After winning his specialty at his home track Saturday night, he journeyed to Merced to finish second in the feature race Sunday night. The Antioch victory was scored on the final night of the auto racing season. Mickey Hill placed second and Scott Busby took third. At Merced, Foulger got

into a torrid duel with Dereck Colvin before finishing second in the main event. The 2010 point season developed into some interesting races from outset to conclusion. Four of the championship races were separated by 20 points or less at the final checkered flag. Brentwood’s Patti Ryland made it two championships in two years when she prevailed in her four banger. She edged Ken Radabaugh 534-520 after the final race. Coming down to the final race of the season, three drivers were in the running for the dwarf car title. One of them, de-

fending champion Ricky Rivera, needed both point leader Nick Squatritto and runner-up Jerry Doty to miss the main event. But both were present for the feature race, which eliminated Rivera, who went on to win his heat and the main event. Doty moved up and won the crown on a strong feature showing, while Squatritto had to be content with a second season showing. It took a recount of the season scoring sheets before Tom Laliberte was declared the title-holder over David Press by a margin of 622 to 612. Former champion

Jim Perry placed third. Other champions this season are Mitch Machado in super stocks; Chris Sorenson in pure stocks; Foulger in dirt modifieds; and Travis Dutra in mini trucks. Dirt Modifieds: Heat Winners – Kenny Neu, Michael Paul and Dan Gonderman; Main Event – Troy Foulger, Hill and Scott Busby. Super Stocks: Heat Winners – Mitch Machado and Danny Mendes; Main Event – Larry Damitz, Michael Newman and Mendes. Pure Stocks: Heat Winners – Melissa Hansen, Billy Nelson and Natalie Perry; Main Event – Tom Tilford, Hansen and Billy Nelson.

Lions nip Panthers

Liberty High junior Janelle Sparks returns a shot during last week’s match against Antioch’s Shannon West.

by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

Near the end of the varsity girls tennis game between Liberty High and Antioch, it was the No. 6 singles match that grabbed everyone’s attention. With both teams tied as the match drew on, the battle between Liberty’s Jenne Wirstlin and Antioch’s Ashley Custer became the deciding factor. Wirstlin, a freshman, took the first set and Custer won the second. Wirstlin went on to win the tiebreaker 10-8, giving the Lions a 5-4 victory. Wirstlin was one of two junior varsity players who got promoted for last week’s game because two varsity players were unable to make it to the game during fall break. “It was pretty nervous, especially go-

ing down to the wire, because we thought we were going to be able to pull it off on the other singles match,” Liberty head coach Priscilla Macksoud said. “I’m excited for (Wirstlin) because she’s the future.” With the victory, the Lions moved to 32 overall and 2-2 against Bay Valley Athletic League opponents. It was the first league loss for the Panthers, who dropped to 3-4 overall and 3-1 in BVAL play. Macksoud said that it was the first time in her three years coaching Liberty that her squad beat Antioch.

Antioch head coach Larry Johnson said that while he was pleased with the play of his singles players, he’d like to see a little more out of his doubles teams. Liberty swept all three doubles matches. “They just need a lot of work on their strokes and their strategy and the whole idea of playing doubles,” Johnson said. “I thought it was pretty much a coin toss before we went into it, but I didn’t know it would be this close.” For the full story, visit www.thepress.net.

Pats sweep weekend Last weekend, the Delta Patriots JV West Team went up against the Galt Jr. Warriors in a hard-fought, must-win game. Determined running by Alex Espinoza put the Patriots up 6-0. On Galt’s next possession, Eddie Mason recovered a fumble inside the Warrior 10-yard line with 40 seconds to go in the half, but the Patriots couldn’t convert the turnover into points. In the second half, a fired-up Patriot squad climaxed a long drive with a touchdown by Alejandro Espinoza. A two-point conversion by kicker Tyler Boer gave the Patriots a 14- 0 lead. The Warriors finally put points on the board with 40 seconds remaining in the contest, but fell short by a score of 14-8. Highlights of Saturday’s game included outstanding interceptions by Ezra Magalei and Ryan Page, and Warrior fumbles forced by Michael Weisenberg and Nicco Pedreira. The Delta Patriots JV West team looks forward to this weekend when they go up against the Western Ranch Ravens. For the full story, visit www. thepress.net.

Energy savings for medical machines If you or your senior loved one use any medical machines at home, PG&E offers a program that could help you save money. The Medical Baseline was created for residential customers with special energy needs due to medical conditions. You qualify, with a doctor certification, when a full-time resident of your house is dependent on life support, is paraplegic, hemiplegic, quadriplegic, has multiple sclerosis or is being treated for a life-threatening illness that compromises the immune system. You also qualify if the resident suffers from a medical condition that requires heat and/or air conditioning to sustain life or prevent deterioration of the condition (such as scleroderma). For more details, call PG&E at 800-743-5000 or visit www.pge.com and click on Financial Assistance and then Medical Baseline. The program can save you lots of money and give you peace of mind. Support groups are another way those in the sandwich generation can deal with an elderly loved one’s medical needs by taking care of themselves as well. It’s easy to become over-

whelmed by the responsibilities of caregiving. Although the joy I take in my senior parent is beyond wonderful, there are times when I get tired, doubt my abilities or experience feelings of anxiety. These feelings are normal. Eating well, exercising and getting some fun time is a must for you and for your family member. You can’t be an effective caregiver when you’re sick or exhausted. My mom can tell – with just one short look – when I’m tired. That makes her worried for me, and we can’t have that. We joke that since she took care of me for the first 18 years of my life, she has 15 more to go – and then she needs to get a job! That’s when I get “the other look.” Feel free to call or e-mail me with your own tips for seniors or if you need any information that I can share with you.

Exercise helps boost immune system by Christian Aguirre Autumn is officially here, and with it, the colds, coughs, sneezes, sniffles, runny noses and sore throats that make us miserable through the winter months. As seasons and weather change, our immune system becomes more vulnerable and less resistant to various infections. Fortunately, finding ways to bolster your immune system is not exactly rocket science. Among many other benefits of physical exercise is that it is a great immunity booster. Something as simple as regular exercise can keep all those pesky viruses, germs and bacteria at bay. Research cited by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), a leading

organization in sports medicine and exercise science, shows that regular exercise can help boost the immune system by either stopping viruses in their tracks before they attack us, or by reducing the duration of cold symptoms by half. These findings are borne out by various studies demonstrating that regular exercise produces macrophages, the cells that defend the body against bacteria. During a moderate workout, these cells circulate through the body, killing viruses and bacteria. And although the immune system returns to its pre-exercise levels very quickly, each workout session appears to reduce the risk of infection over the long term. That might explain why, as studies in-

dicate, those who work out regularly report fewer colds than non-exercisers. Certainly, exercise is not a cure-all for whatever ails you, and even the most ardent fitness aficionados will get sick once in a while. However, there is all this compelling evidence suggesting that exercise might lower your risk of contracting common infections. Now that you know just how beneficial regular workouts can be for your immune system, what kind of fitness regimen should you choose? Luckily, exercises that are most effective in strengthening the immune system are also those that are great for your heart, weight control, and your health in general, so it’s a win-win situation. Boot camps are terrific because they focus on the entire body, as well

as on core and cardiovascular fitness, balance, strength and agility. And since boot camp workouts are fun and varied, there is less risk of getting bored than with a regimen that is either monotonous or depends heavily on gym equipment. If boosting your immune system – and health in general – is your goal, then you certainly shouldn’t choose a fitness routine that will get you into a rut and will make you want to give up. The point is to make exercising so enjoyable that you’ll want to continue. And boot camps do just that. To learn more about the weight loss program created by Christian Aguirre, CPT owner of Aloha Health and Fitness, call 510-919-6806 or e-mail info@eastbaytrainer.com.

Tending to teeth in an emergency situation the person – and the tooth – get to a dentist within 30 minutes. This makes it possible to re-implant the tooth with a high degree of success. Find the tooth, and holding it by its crown, gently rinse it to remove dirt and/or debris. Do not scrub it. If possible, gently place the tooth back in its socket as a means of transport. Otherwise, transport the tooth in a cup of milk, saline (salt water) or saliva (place the tooth between cheek and gum, unless the child is too young). If none of these measures are available, use a cup of plain water. Extruded Teeth If a tooth is pushed inward or outward, try to reposition it,

using light finger pressure. Do not force the tooth into its socket. Try to get the injured person to the dentist as soon as possible. The tooth can be stabilized and held in place with a moist tissue or gauze on the way. Fractured Teeth First, rinse your mouth with warm water to keep it clean. Immediate dental care is necessary. The treatment will depend on the severity of the fracture and could range from smoothing out the chip to bonding with a resin (toothcolored) material to installing a crown (cap). If there has been pulp (nerve) injury, a root canal might be necessary at once or

at a later date. Soft-tissue Injury The tongue, lips or cheeks are vulnerable to bites, lacerations (cuts) or punctures. If there is bleeding, apply firm pressure with a gauze or clean cloth. If the bleeding doesn’t stop within 15 minutes, bring the person to the dentist or hospital emergency room. Sutures (stitches) might be necessary. Otherwise, clean the area with warm water on a gauze or clean cloth. Apply an ice compress to the bruised or swollen area.

In praise of Patsy Ella Wolfe performs a tribute to Patsy Cline at Antioch’s El Campanil Theatre on Oct. 15 through 17 in “Always … Patsy Cline,” a show that recreates humorous and heartfelt aspects of the late vocalist’s life. Produced by The Vagabond Players, directed by Sharon Redman and based on a true story by Ted Swindley, the show incorporates more than two dozen Patsy Cline hits, such as “Crazy,” “Anytime,” “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “I Fall to Pieces,” “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” and “Blue Moon of Kentucky.” It also spotlights the star’s ties with a fan named Louise Seger, played by Rhonda Taylor, who befriended her in a Texas honky-tonk. Their

friendship continued until 1963, when Cline died in a plane crash at the age of 30. Ella Wolfe, who toured the United States for two decades before turning to musical theater, scored a hit last November in a cabaret show called “Standing Room Only.” In the coming production, she’ll have the backing of a six-member band directed by Joan Cifarelli.

OBITUARY Nicholas Rodriquez, Jr. Nov. 19, 1933-Sept. 26, 2010 If you ask any longtime resident of East Contra Costa County if they know Nick Rodriquez, they’d reply, “Everyone knows Nick!” Sadly, Nick retired peacefully surrounded by his family on Sunday, Sept. 26 after a short battle with cancer. He and Carmen, his wife of 53 years, raised seven children along with numerous other children. He is survived by Carmen; sons, Raymond, Michael and his wife Sharon, Nicholas the III and his wife Maria, and Ralph; daughters, Roberta, Roslyn and her wife Angelike, and Rebecca. A grandfather of 12 and great grandfather of 19, Nick is also survived by a brother, Joseph; and sisters, Mary Lou Rodriquez and Lola Luna. He was preceded in death by his parents, Nick and Helen Rodriquez; brother, Robert; and sisters, Tina and Jenny Rodriquez. Many remember when Nick owned a local service station, working seven days a week. He got to know everyone, and everyone got to know him. He even played Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, going from house to house visiting the children of East Contra Costa County. In 1971, Nick closed his service station after 20 years, and was ready to begin a new career. For the next 20-plus

years, Nick worked for Contra Costa County and was involved in many community activities, started with serving on the Oakley school board, Red Cross Board of Directors, chairing the Office of Economic Opportunity Council, Anti-Poverty Program along with the original board that advocated for funds to build the Delta Community Service Center in Brentwood. Over the years, Nick continued to work on community issues. At one time he was on as many as 20 committees. He was also part of the Public Environmental Health Advisory Board, and was appointed by the City of Oakley to the Advisory Council on Aging for Contra Costa County. Sharon Johnson, Deputy Director of Aging & Adult Services, says, “Nick has been a tireless advocate for the residents of East Contra Costa County. Everything Nick does, he does with a special flair. He is an asset to our community.” Nick enjoyed spending time with his family, Giants spring training, gardening, watching cowboy movies, walking the streets of Oakley, working the Brentwood CornFest, bus trips to Reno and making his community equal for everyone. In lieu of flowers, the family requests a memorial donation in Nick’s name to either the Delta Community Services or a local hospice of your choice.

High achiever Discovery Bay resident Daniel Calma graduated on Sept. 24 from the Kaiser Permanente School of Allied Health Sciences as a certified radiology technologist. He was the class valedictorian and earned the award for Pride and Professionalism. Following graduation, Danny and the family celebrated in Hawaii for a week. Congratulations, Daniel!

Patriot from page 4B positive person,” said senior outside hitter Courtney Quinn. “She’s really smart when it comes to the game, she knows what she’s doing and she knows what we need to do as a team. She’s good at bringing everyone together.” Heritage volleyball normally fields competitive teams, and this season has been no exception. As of Monday, the Patriots boast a 15-7 record, 1-1 against Bay Valley Athletic League teams. Hancock is already taking necessary actions, both on and off of the court, to ensure that she can play in college. While the decision is still a year away, she is looking at Pepperdine, possibly joining her sister Madison, who also played volleyball at Heritage. In addition to Pepperdine, Hancock is also considering UCLA, San Francisco State and Azusa Pacific. “It seems like when the athlete makes the choice that they want to play at the next level, everything about their way of looking at things changes,” Hannigan said. “She’s willing to work hard and stay after to practice, and that makes a big difference.” While Hancock is immensely talented, she does acknowledge that her game needs to get a little sharper. In addition to her time on the Heritage team, Hancock spends time on club teams, which are also important in the development of a volleyball player. The coach feels that Hancock’s versatility and work ethic will help get her to the next level. But right now, she isn’t totally focused on college. Hancock’s Patriot teammates are counting on her to help Heritage compete with Deer Valley and the rest of the BVAL. “She’s very aggressive,” said Cotas. “When we’re having a bad run, she knows when to step up and say, ‘You guys have to do this. You have to be able to give me a good pass so we can make a play off of it.’ That’s what we look for in a captain, because we normally need someone to say, ‘We need you right here,’ and that’s what she provides for us.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

It just has a lot of ups and downs.” Brittany and Haley were exposed to the game by their father, John, who played golf at Los Medanos College. They got a late start compared to their older cousins, who both played golf when they were kids. Haley’s hope is to follow Brittany to Southern Utah University, where she would major in advertising and minor in photography, while also playing golf. Brittany is currently a sophomore and one of the Thunderbirds’ top players. “They make each other better, so I think it would be great,” said Lisa Edwards, Brittany and Haley’s mother. “(Haley) is looking forward to it; she’s excited – nervous, but excited.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.
