Creep-out calendar

by Dave Roberts Staff Writer A plan to construct more than 12,000 houses, apartments and condos along with more than 6 million square feet of shopping centers and business parks on the old Concord Naval Weapons Station property has East County residents and officials concerned it will significantly worsen traffic congestion on Highway 4. “If East County does not act together and the Naval Weapons Station (development) comes on line in five years, there is no bond money and there will be no improvements on that section of highway,” Antioch resident Terry Ramus said to East County officials at the last Transplan meeting. “Right now you back up on Willow Pass every morning – even during a down economy. If the economy comes back, we will not be able to get out of East County to get to work. East County needs to take a position on it.” The Antioch City Council on Tuesday agreed to join with other East County cities and the county to write a letter expressing concerns about the planned development and urging that adequate measures be put in place to lessen the traffic impacts from the new residents and businesses that might move into the 5,000-acre site

Antioch Mayor Jim Davis has also spoken at one of the Concord planning meetings for the project. “I stated then that I am concerned about the impacts on Highway 4 with a major subdivision or cluster of homes and villages,” he said. “If that dumps onto Highway 4 without mitigation, then traffic in East County (will worsen).

“We have been trying to get BART out here and Highway 4 widened for the last 25 years. We are starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel. And here we see possible impacts of gridlock at the top of Willow Pass for everybody. “I think we need to speak up. I think we can

East County vets to parade in Antioch by Dave Roberts Staff Writer For the most part, Veterans Day doesn’t feature the ceremonial pomp and circumstance of its more heralded brother, Memorial Day. There wasn’t a Veterans Day Parade in East County until last year when a patriotic group in Antioch, after spending five years raising funds for and building a war dog memorial near the Antioch Marina, was looking for a new project. “I think it was Mayor (Jim) Davis who said, ‘Let’s have a parade,’” said his wife Susan Davis, who is co-chairing with him the committee organizing the second annual Veterans Day Parade. She said last year’s inaugural parade drew about 20,000 people to see veterans, classic cars, motorcycle riders, marching bands, Scout troops and others parade down Second Street in downtown Antioch. She and fellow committee mem-

It begins, appropriately, at 11 a.m. on 11/11 near the Antioch Lumber Company and ends up at the marina. Hoping to make the annual parade an event for all of East

County, committee members have been drumming up support by speaking at community events, setting up a table at the mall, placing fliers around town and issuing Chamber of Commerce e-blasts. So far, 20 participants from last

year are on board for this year’s parade, including the Antioch and Deer Valley high school bands, numerous military vehicles, veteran motorcycle groups and community organizations. Front and center in the parade will be WWII veterans – more of whom are still being sought – followed by those from other past and current conflicts. “I think it’s important that we honor all of the men and women who served in all of the wars and who have given their lives for us to enjoy the freedoms that we do,” said Mayor Davis. “We are expecting this year to be bigger and better. If it’s anything like last year, we are expecting a tremendous turnout.” As many as five veterans might serve as co-grand marshals for the parade, which this year honors prisoners of war. Antioch resident Vincent Silva, 91, was one of those prisoners, one of the fortunate survivors see Vets page 18A

Oakley council seeks, and delays, input by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

The Oakley City Council Tuesday said it needed more public input before deciding on one issue before it, but declined hear more testimony on another more contentious item carried over from September. During a work session for the Oakley Downtown Specific Plan’s draft environmental impact report, only one person spoke up when the public was invited to make comments regarding downtown development. Councilman Bruce Connelley said he didn’t think that was enough. “We have 33,000 more people,” he said. “I realize the focus of this meeting is to direct staff to conduct outreach programs to our downtown businesses and other stakeholders regarding the specific plan’s EIR, and we’re seeing it tonight that it’s obvious that we need to put forth a strong effort (to get public input.) “The downtown affects everybody, not just the downtown businesses, and if we have to go knocking door to door to let people know and encourage them to show up, then we need to bend over backward to let them know that we need their input. We need your involvement. I don’t want to see anyone come back and say, ‘You didn’t tell us.’” Connelley said he understood time constraints make it difficult for business owners to attend council meetings but he advised staff to take whatever steps necessary to make sure everyone in town knows about the project. Councilman Jim Frazier agreed. He said it’s important to make sure everyone is aware of the project because those who operate their businesses from home might want to relocate to the downtown area once the transformation is complete. Oakley has been working on the Downtown Specific Plan since January of 2000. The city plans to revitalize an 80-acre area downtown bordered by Main Street, Gardenia Avenue, Home Street and the railroad tracks. The overall plan is to create a more pedestrian-friendly downtown featuring specialty shops,

restaurants, cafés and civic facilities similar to Walnut Creek or Santa Cruz. The plan, which is expected to take 10 years to implement, envisions a realignment of Main Street to direct heavy throughtraffic away from the social and commercial areas. The project also calls for renovations and façade improvement of existing buildings and many other changes designed to meet Oakley’s 2020 vision.

“ You’re going to get a chance to see what’s planned – what’s open, what has no maps on it and what has maps on it. It’s going to be a time to understand how we got there and where we want to go. We want to hear from you. We want to know your concerns.

Mayor Carol Rios The EIR spells out how the city will handle the project’s potentially significant impacts so as to remain compliant with the California Environmental Quality Act. The EIR cites five areas in need of special attention, including noise, transportation and parking, air quality, cultural resources and global climate change. All impacts discussed in the report have proposed mitigations to reduce the impacts to less-than-significant levels. The council didn’t make many comments or ask many questions regarding the project, but Councilwoman Pat Anderson directed that more language be added to the air quality section to address how mineral emissions, such as asbestos, will be reduced when older building are renovated or demolished.

sion, said the renovation was an opportunity to utilize more green technologies such as solar panels, and to implement water conservation systems. Oakley Senior Planner Ken Strelo said the public is still encouraged to submit comments via e-mail or to call the city with suggestions. The public comment period ends on Wednesday, Oct. 28, at which time city staff will address concerns presented during the comment period and then submit the final EIR to the City Council for approval. The council will hold a public hearing on the plan later this year. Copies of the Oakley Downtown Specific Plan and the draft EIR are available at City Hall and the Oakley Library. The document may also be viewed at the city’s Web site, www. oakleyinfo.com. Also on Tuesday, Mayor Carol Rios announced that the agenda of the Nov. 10 council meeting would be shortened in order to devote a preponderance of the evening to a special General Plan work session. During this time, citizens would be able to discuss issues such as zoning and future development in the city. “We’re going to look at the entire general plan for Oakley,” Rios told the audience. “You’re going to get a chance to see what’s planned – what’s open, what has no maps on it and what has maps on it. It’s going to be a time to understand how we got there and where we want to go. “We want to hear from you. We want to know your concerns.” A few minutes later, the council picked up where it left off last month concerning an application to rezone 13.9 acres off Laurel Road from a general agriculture district to a planned development district to accommodate the proposed Rosewood Estates housing project. More than 100 comments had been submitted during the Sept. 22 public hearing and testimony lasted for hours. The public hearing had been closed and the issue see Input page 15A

Greenbelt Alliance to speak at Forum Greenbelt Alliance Campaigns Director Melissa Hippard will speak at the East Contra Forum later this month regarding the recent ruling in a case against the city of Oakley. The Contra Costa County Superior Court ruled that the environmental impact report for the East Cypress Corridor Specific Plan is incomplete, halting Oakley’s plans to develop thousands of acres of farmland. In a precedent-setting decision, Superior Court Judge Barry Baskin wrote: “Inexplicably, the City failed to consider a reasonable range of mitigation measures or potentially feasible alternatives to lessen the impact to important farmland.” The judge went on to question why the city didn’t ask developers to acquire similar farmland for conservation purposes elsewhere in the county to make up for the lost land in Oakley.

Greenbelt Alliance is a San Franciscobased environmental advocacy group that works with citizens, elected officials and diverse groups to protect open space and improve the livability of existing communities through grassroots organizing, coalition building, policy analysis, political strategizing and local advocacy. Hippard will also discuss the phenomenon of eating local, a movement that promotes urban farming within cities. The forum, sponsored by Oakley Citizens for Responsive Government, will be held on Sunday, Oct. 25 at 1 p.m. in The Red Caboose, 210 Fulton Shipyard Road in Antioch. The forum is free and open to the public. For more information, call Eve Diamond at 415-309-0611 or e-mail her at apeaceactivist1@yahoo.com.

ATTORNEY LOAN MODS Many homeowners in our area would like their loan modified, so there is a huge opportunity here for loan modification companies, who have sprung up by the thousands across the nation. Unfortunately, their track record overall hasn’t been that great, and there are some “fast-buck” scam artists that you have to watch out for. I’ve heard many stories where people send in $500-$3,000, only to never hear from the company again. Now that there are hundreds (thousands?) of these companies around the country pitching their services, they are all searching for ways to stand out from the crowd. The latest fad is where they claim to be “attorney-based” and make claims that only attorneys should really be doing loan mods. Or at least they claim that their rate of success will be higher since they have attorneys doing the work. The problem is that many of these attorney-based firms really just have one or two attorneys on retainer, but it’s still the same hourly employees doing the actual negotiations for you. Some of these modification firms are taking on hundreds, if not thousands of loan modification clients. It would take an ARMY

of attorneys to really give each file the personal attention it deserves. The State Bar of California is especially concerned about this situation as they fear that their members are collecting fees while providing no benefit to the client, who is already in a vulnerable and precarious financial position. Earlier this year the Bar created a special task force to deal with a 58% increase in investigations since last year. “In my 21 years in attorney discipline, I have not seen a crisis of this magnitude. It is truly unprecedented,” said Interim Chief Trial Counsel Russell Weiner recently as the Bar released the names of 16 attorneys who are under investigation for misconduct in relation to loan modifications. This is the first time the Bar has released more than just a couple of attorneys’ names during an investigation. They just felt their duty to warn the consumer was paramount in this situation.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Tax Credit Questions With November 30, 2009 creeping up – no pun intended for Halloween right around the corner – the window of opportunity to take advantage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and its $8,000 first time buyer credit, is quickly coming to a close. As most potential first time buyers (even those who have recently become first time buyers) will tell you, our current real estate market is already frustrating without having to worry about the ins and outs of said $8,000 credit. To allow any would be buyers to concentrate on what matters most – actually finding a home – I’ve compiled a list of the questions I’m most frequently asked that revolve around the tax credit with a Cinderella date of December 1, 2009: What type of homes qualify for the credit – Any home that will be used as a primary/principal residence qualifies for the credit. This includes single-family detached homes, attached homes (i.e. townhomes and condominiums), manufactured homes (also known as mobile homes), modular homes and houseboats. If it qualifies for the capital gains tax on a primary residence, it qualifies for this credit. How do I claim the tax credit – You claim the tax credit on your federal income tax return. Specifically, home buyers should complete IRS form 5405 to determine their tax credit amount, and then claim this amount on Line 69 of their 1040 income tax return. No other applications or forms are required, and no pre-approval is necessary.

How much of the credit will I receive - The full tax credit is given to first time buyers with a modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) of less than $75,000 for single tax payers and $150,000 for married taxpayers filing a joint return. For taxpayers with MAGI of more than $95,000 (single) or $170,000 (married) the credit is reduced to zero. Taxpayers between these figures are prorated accordingly. Is a tax credit the same as a tax deduction – No, a tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in what the taxpayer owes. That means that a taxpayer who owes $8,000 in income taxes, and who receives an $8,000 tax credit, would owe nothing to the IRS. A tax deduction is subtracted from the amount of income that is taxed. Assuming the same $8,000 tax liability from above, a taxpayer that is in the 33 percent tax bracket would have their liability reduced from $8,000 to $5,360. ($8,000 multiplied by 33%). The most important thing to remember about this tax credit is that you should be congratulating yourself. If you intend to claim this credit it means that somewhere within the last eight months (April through November) you became a home owner…a huge accomplishment! Should you ever have any other questions regarding the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, or anything else related to real estate financing, please write or call. I’m always here to help and I’m only a phone call away. 925-726-1444, tfreymortgages@yahoo.com.

Get a jump on winter maintenance As winter approaches, now is a good time to take care of those essential tasks that help your house keep you warm and dry. It’s always cheaper to make repairs ahead of time while the weather is good than to deal with an emergency in the middle of a storm. Dirty furnace filters should be cleaned or replaced to ensure that the furnace operates as efficiently as possible. This will also help combat indoor allergies as well as conserve energy. If your thermostat and smoke detectors are battery operated, you should test their batteries. According to Oakley Building Official Brent Smith, “Most people see their smoke detectors as an irritant when it comes to changing the batteries; however, if you ever have a fire, you’ll certainly be glad you took the five minutes to change them.” Inspecting doors and windows for minor air leaks is also an easy preventive measure. “People would also be surprised how much energy is lost by lack of maintenance when their door gaskets wear out and become less effective,” Smith said. Weather stripping for doors is an inexpensive investment of time and money that will make your house more energy efficient and comfortable. If you have a fireplace, make sure the

chimney is clear of obstructions inside and out and that your damper is in the open position prior to lighting a fire. Start by walking around the exterior of your house. “Inspecting rain gutters and downspouts to make sure they’re clean and unobstructed from debris is important,” said Smith, “even if you do not have many trees around your house or they’re small, less matured trees. You’ll be surprised at how much dust will settle in the gutters.” Inspect the roof for broken shingles or tiles. This is also an ideal time to adjust automatic sprinklers so that you’re not overwatering in the winter months. “Considering we had a drought emergency declared by the g ov e r n o r,” said Smith, “it’s important to conserve water in the winter months as well.” If this is the year you upgrade that old, inefficient furnace to a newer, high-efficiency unit, the City of Oakley has reduced permit fees by 50 percent for energysaving devices and appliances such as skylights, high-efficiency water heaters and furnaces. If you do find some problems beyond what you’re comfortable fixing, be sure to hire a licensed contractor. “I always recommend that people get at least three to five bids and actively check references,” Smith said. For information regarding what repair work needs a permit and what is exempt, call the Oakley Building Division at 925-625-7005 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For tips on hiring a licensed contractor, go to the Contractors State License Board homepage, www.cslb.ca.gov.

Shea Homes makes now the time to buy For a limited time, the Shea Homes Stimulus Package is still in effect. With Northern California home prices back on the upswing, the Stimulus Package could mark the best time this year to seal a deal on a quality Shea home. Shea’s 2009 Stimulus Package pulls together an impressive collection of values on move-in-ready homes: Great ďŹ nancing with low down payments, closing cost credits and Federal tax credits up to $8,000. SpeciďŹ c offers vary by property and may include other incentives, so be sure to visit a Sales Center soon to choose a favorite home. Stimulus Package homes are available in one of Shea’s most popular Northern California communities: Summer Lake, in Oakley near the Delta watersports getaway region. Centered around a 25-acre lake, it’s a stellar example of how Shea Homes takes care to build not only new homes, but complete neighborhoods. Buyers can choose from a broad range of single-family home sizes and prices, with generous oorplans and premium features. The 2009 Stimulus Plan makes these desirable homes accessible to more buyers than ever. Building on a Strong Foundation During the recent home market slump, many builders have been forced to make drastic cutbacks or even go out of business. All builders have felt the pinch, but Shea Homes continues to sell homes at an impressive rate, even introducing new products at a time when other builders are burdened with standing inventory. Selling over 1,100 new homes already in 2009, Shea Homes remains strong due to its legendary construction quality, combined with a focus on creating desirable neighborhoods to foster a sense of community. The company has been family-owned since 1881, and is America’s largest privatelyowned homebuilder, building new homes in seven states. Federal Tax Credit Program Expires Soon Eligible buyers who act fast can still take advantage of the government’s Federal Tax Credit program, offering up to $8,000 in credits for ďŹ rst-time homebuyers (or those who have not owned in the past three years). The credit is given as a reduction on income tax owed. If it reduces taxes to less than zero, it will result in a tax refund. The credit is 10% of the home price up to a maximum of $8,000. It is available to individuals with incomes up to $75,000, or couples with incomes that do not exceed $150,000. Staying in the new home for three years is required, or the credits will have to be repaid. Additional government help is available from the FHA, who has increased loan limits and now only requires a 3.5 percent down payment. The Federal Tax Credit program is expiring soon. Buyers must close escrow by 11:59PM November 30, 2009 in order to qualify. To help accommodate the program, Shea Homes is prepared to put eligible buyers on a fast track to closing. See a sales representative in the community of your choice soon to get started. Shea’s 2009 Stimulus Package deals include current inventory homes at Summer Lake in Oakley. Summer Lake offers a range of home choices in four neighbor-

Eastern Star on the rise The membership portion of the California Eastern Star Vision Statement encourages members to engage and revitalize its existing membership. Ariel Chapter #42 in Antioch achieved that goal on Aug. 1 with great pride, glad hearts and a few happy tears when it initiated eight new members, all with ties to the Masonic youth orders. Worthy Matron Marsha Antrobus presided over the ceremony that included her two daughters. Conductress Debbie Brown led the procession through the labyrinth that concluded with her son on the arm of Associate Conductress Candi Amigo. Leslie Koch gave a lesson about the trustful faith of Martha to her daughter, her dear friend of many years, and her friend’s daughter. Deputy Grand Matron Mary Carlson beamed with pride and thanked the chapter for providing such an auspicious occasion to celebrate her return to active duty after an injury-induced absence. The new initiates were Erin Alonso, Elise Antrobus, Alisha Navarro and Paula Zimmerman from Rainbow; Melisa Gemetti, Michelle Gemetti and Elizabeth Koch from Job’s Daughters; and Trevor Brown from DeMolay. This accomplishment can be attributed to the tireless efforts of the aforementioned Ariel officers who are involved beyond Eastern Star as parents with the local Masonic youth organizations – Diablo Valley Assembly #84 International Order of Rainbow for Girls, Antioch Bethel #115 International Order of Job’s Daughters, and Antioch Chapter DeMolay. WM Marsha served California Rainbow as grand deputy and is on the California Public Relations Team and the Antioch DeMolay Advisory Counsel. Debbie Brown is chapter advisor for the Antioch chapter of DeMolay and a Cross of Honor recipient. Leslie Koch is a majority member

Adventures of Marley I felt bad for the little teddy bear hamster. About as big as a golf ball, the tiny creature had once sported a fuzzy coat of butterscotch. She loved her wheel and lived in a little straw Tiki hut inside her pink cage. Her name was Marley. HANGIN’ IN You can connect the dots on your own HERE about how my 20year-old daughter came up with that name, but Marley was a well-loved pet, enjoyed by our entire family. One day we VICKI noticed she was MCKENNA scratching quite a bit. The following week she began losing her fur from the bottom up. After a while it looked like she was wearing a furry crop top. Her reddish bare bottom became exposed for all to see. The itching persisted. I told my daughter she should take Marley to the vet but the exam cost $45 and she told me she bought the hamster for $12. It just didn’t make sense. My friends and neighbors offered all kinds of morbid ideas as to how I could dispose of the tiny rodent, none of them humane enough for me to consider. One idea involved a tennis racket. I just couldn’t help feeling sorry for Marley. One mosquito bite

T

drives me crazy. I couldn’t imagine the torture of itching all day and all night. Finally, I broke down and took her to the animal hospital myself. They were happy to examine her for the $45 fee. The diagnosis was mites: microscopic little bugs that burrow under the skin and cause incredible itching and sometimes a secondary infection, which she had developed. Her little eyes were swollen and red. She truly looked like her namesake. The doctor informed me that the cure for mites was the injection of a drug called ivermectin at $40 a pop, and she would need three of them. She would also require antibiotics that we’d need to administer into her little hamster mouth with a syringe. The antibiotics would be an additional $15. The dollar signs were whirling around my brain. All this money for a $12 hamster? Credit cards are great, aren’t they? It feels like you’re not even spending your own money. Simply swipe and sign. I knew in my heart it was the right thing to do; after all, Marley was one of God’s creatures and the good karma would surely come back to me one day. My daughter and I took turns giving Marley her medicine. Marley actually enjoyed it, sucking on the syringe like a straw and holding it with her see Marley page 19A

Layoffs unreliable path to deficit reduction Editor: It seems like saving money is all anyone can talk or think about these days. Whether that’s by shopping at discount stores, restricting on leisure activities or other indulgences. People are becoming growingly more desperate to save money. At what level does our city reach the “bare essentials” on what we truly need to just make it by or to even save money to lower our deficit? The City of Brentwood will face more cutbacks in the near future. After cutting $11 million of the city budget through layoffs, cuts in pay and work hours, it bothers me to think of where the next cuts are going to come from. The city plans on saving money by staff reorganizations, even more layoffs, cutting police overtime, and a retirementand-return-to-work program. These can be very successful and beneficial ways to decrease our deficit. However, laying off more workers and cutting back on police overtime and benefits are very unsettling. Layoffs are affecting people around the country and cutting costs purely by layoffs is not always the best solution. It’s apparent that laying off workers is an immediately effective way of saving money but it’s also contributing to the growing rate of people on unemployment and welfare in our country. The most troubling way our City Council plans to cut another one million dollars in the future is through cutting police overtime and benefits. This is the absolute wrong way to go about saving money, considering that safety should be one of our city’s main priorities. Why cut there? Is it just the fact that everyone is becoming obsessed with saving money so much to where it jeopardizes the future of our town? It’s obviously naïve to assume that

cutbacks in overtime hours and benefits will automatically lead to a downward spiral of our community. I wonder, though, after the recent cutbacks go into effect, where will future budget cuts come from and who will they affect next? Kyle Wells Brentwood

Unprofessional behavior Editor: In my opinion, the Mayor of Oakley demonstrated unprofessional and rude behavior toward the audience and certain individuals at the Council meeting of Oct. 13. While I recognize that order must be maintained at these meetings, her way of handling things only serves to aggravate people and earns disrespect. Examples include (1) allowing people with “warm and fuzzy” things to say to go over the three-minute time limit, while cutting off others at three minutes; (2) a dismissive attitude toward anti-development comments submitted by people who were not allowed to speak; (3) outright rudeness toward a lady with a heart-breaking story of her son being beaten up by thugs in Oakley; (4) public criticism of Mr. Nix, which was totally not called-for; (5) a patronizing attitude toward the audience while explaining that “they are only rezoning,” when in fact everyone knows that once land is rezoned, the developer will always go for the maximum density allowed. The whole scene is reminiscent of an angry schoolteacher lecturing badly behaving little kids in class. Our citizens are hard-working adults who deserve respect and a city government that not only listens, but responds to their concerns. Donald E. Scheer Oakley

4-H hangs in, says thanks Editor; Last week 4-H members across the country celebrated National 4-H week. I am glad to say that 4-H members in Contra Costa County were again part of that celebration. Only a few short months ago I did not think we would have the opportunity to be in 4- H this year. But due to the efforts of many we do. Our program is still in a crisis mode. Our funding has been severely cut. We have very limited county resources at this point. But on the positive side we do have the opportunity to be in 4-H and serve our community. I would like to thank the Oakley City Council for their support of 4-H in East County, especially Councilman Jim Frazier. I would also like to thank County Supervisor Susan Bonilla for helping with funding for our University of California Cooperative Extension

Community comes through on ’cue Editor: East Contra Costa Historical Society held its annual Community Barbecue on Sept. 13. The barbecue serves as the major fundraiser to help maintain the museum for public and school tours and to preserve historical documents and photos. ECCHS does not receive revenue from any governmental source, so all funds derived for its support come from individual and business donors, membership dues and events such as the barbecue. At the present time, we are attempting to raise enough revenue to replace the septic system and restore an 1890s-era schoolhouse. As an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization, any contributions and donations that offset the costs of the barbecue are greatly appreciated. East County has once again shown its giving spirit in contributing to this cause. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the following organizations, individuals and businesses for their donations: Rotary Club and Rotary Interact; G&S Farms; Smith Farms; Wild West Bar-B-Q & Catering; Delta Pure Water; Harvest Park Bowl; Sweeney’s Grill and Bar; Bloomfield Vineyards; Cline Cellars; Viano Winery; Hannah Nicole Vineyards; Costco; Oakley Disposal; Orin Allen Youth Rehabilitation Facility. And to the raffle donors: from Brentwood – Shiny Nails; Prevot’s Oyster Bar & Grill; Crème del Gem Jewelry; Straw Hat Pizza (Lone Tree Way); Bill Brandt Ford; Sticky Chicken & Ribs; Health Hut; Gabby’s Grind; CK Pizzeria; SpeeDee Oil Change & Tune-up; Doggie Depot; from Oakley – Yogurt Island; Gene’s Handiwork; Oakley Super Beauty Salon; from Knightsen – Pampered Pets; and from Antioch – The Red Caboose. Please support these businesses and show them how much their philanthropic efforts are appreciated. In addition, ECCHS thanks the American Legion; Samantha, Madelyn, and Olivia Bustos; the Community Band; Byron Station; and Rod Linn and his musical group for their participation in the event. East Contra Costa County has once again proved why it has the best of the

best! Thank you again for your generous support. We invite anyone interested in the history of this area to join ECCHS (annual dues are $20 for families; $15 for individuals and $50 for business concerns); to become docents for the museum (open on Saturdays from April to October); to tour the Byer/Nail House; and to aid the historians who labor many hours in preserving and cataloging photos and records from yesteryear.

Cookin’ at the cookhouse

Photo courtesy of Elizabeth Rimbault

he Antioch Historical Society’s annual membership barbecue was held recently on the museum grounds. Four generations, descendants of the McCoy family, gathered around the table in the McCoy Cook House, which was opened for viewing for the day. From the left are Shelley French, Judy McCuish, Danielle French and Clara Lamb. Lamb still remembers visiting the little house on the side of Kirker Pass before it was relocated to the museum site in 2007. Now restored, the cookhouse is used as a demonstration pioneer home for elementary students on the museum grounds and is open for student tours on request. The museum is located at 1500 W. Fourth St. and is open Wednesdays and Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m.

Input from page 3A continued to this week for final action regarding rezoning. After pulling the item from the consent calendar Tuesday, Rios said comments on speaker cards submitted indicated there was nothing new to enter into the record, and declined to let residents address the council. Most of the cards contained remarks dealing with design and housing densities, she said, while the issue before the council dealt only with zoning. Audience members responded by calling out their objections, and one woman was granted three minutes to speak. She said that with approval of more housing projects and the addition of more people, the city risks increased crime rates. She shared her personal story about her son, who was beat up in town by some of Oakley’s newer residents. She said she couldn’t attend the public hearing last month because she was tending to her son, who had suffered a shattered jaw. The woman went on to discuss other ramifications of the project such as increased traffic, but when her three minutes were up, the mayor asked her to step down. The woman continued to speak and the mayor repeatedly informed the woman that her time was up and asked her to return to her seat. After several warnings, the woman sat down. Because only a handful of speaker cards were submitted, Connelley made a motion to allow the others to make their comments, but there was no second and the motion failed. Anderson then encouraged residents to return for the public hearing, expected early next year, when design would be addressed.

Resident Donald Scheer believes residents should have been allowed to speak. In an e-mail sent following the meeting, he said “... everyone knows that once land is rezoned, the developer will always go for the maximum density allowed,” and said Rios’ actions “demonstrated unprofessional and rude behavior.” City Manager Bryan Montgomergy said in an e-mail Wednesday morning that the unfolding of events at the meeting was “unfortunate.” “The residents were primed to believe the Council didn’t want to listen when the reality is that the Council did listen to over 100 comments and speakers when the public hearing was open,” Montgomery wrote. “Technically, with the hearing closed, it shouldn’t be reopened because it wasn’t noticed to be re-opened pursuant to the Brown Act, as it never is with the second reading of an ordinance. Mayor Rios’ comments were that if something new that was not discussed during the public hearing time, then it could be entertained, but it appears no one really had anything new except what was a part of the formal public hearing.” One issue from the Rosewood Estate discussion will be carried over to a future meeting. A session on the development’s tentative map, continued from Sept. 22, would be held at a date uncertain, Montgomery said. He said the public would be able to comment on density and other issues pertaining to the tentative map at that time. The rezone was approved 4-0. Connelley abstained, stating that he didn’t agree with the censoring of the public by not allowing the other speakers to have their three minutes.

New Kiwanis board The Kiwanis Club of Brentwood recently installed new members to its board of directors. From left are incoming Secretary Tom Ontis, Kiwanis Division 26 Lt. Gov. Jim Sullivan (who officiated at the induction and who is also a member of the Brentwood club), incoming President Val Thompkins and incoming Vice President Jeff Schults. The other members of the board are Treasurer John Jewell (also immediate past president), Mervin Rose and Fred Urbin. The Kiwanis Club of Brentwood meets every Friday at Perko’s Cafe, 1135 Second St. in Brentwood. To learn more about Kiwanis, call Rick at 925-634-1441.

To celebrate Constitution Day, Sept. 17, members of the Antioch and Delta Rotary clubs distributed free copies of the U.S. Constitution to all the approximately 1,500 eighth-grade students in Antioch’s four middle schools. As part of Rotary International’s emphasis on literacy, both clubs have for many years given free dictionaries to third-grade students in Antioch, and will do so again this month. This year, however, Antioch Club President Allen Payton chose to include constitutions for the older students. “It’s a small way we can help our students learn more about our country and government,” Payton said. “I’m hoping this is something we’ll continue each year. I’d like to thank each of the principals, as well as the Delta Club members, for their assistance.” The Rotarians spoke to students in assemblies at both Dallas Ranch and Park middle schools, and in classrooms at Antioch and Black Diamond middle schools. Students read from the preamble and a few of the amendments. Project Coordinator Devi Lanphere developed “fun facts” about the Constitution, which she used to question the students’ knowledge.

The pocket-size copies included both the U.S. Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and a place for the students to sign their name. Since 1947 the Antioch Rotary Club has served the Antioch community with a variety of service projects, including curb cuts in downtown Rivertown, building the gazebo and helping fund the Sports Legends wing at the Antioch Historical Society museum, coats for kids and food for the hungry. In addition, Antioch Rotarians started and support a vision and dental clinic, and a library in Zimba, Zambia. They meet Thursdays at noon at the Lone Tree Golf & Event Center. Rotary International is a 1.2 million member service organization made up of business and community leaders in 33,000 clubs in more than 150 countries throughout the world. Its efforts have led to the virtual eradication of polio, and the promotion of literacy, clean water, health, hunger and disaster relief programs and projects throughout the world.

Latino families change the face of America In observance of Hispanic Heritage month (Sept. 15 to Oct. 15) the Council on Contemporary Families has released the following fact sheet prepared by Ruth E. Zambrana and Laura A. Logie of the University of Maryland. Over the last 30 years the Latino/ Hispanic population in the United States has grown seven times faster than the population of the nation as a whole. Hispanics currently represent almost 15 percent of the U.S. popula-

Impacts from page 1A throw our wrench in it and make sure they will mitigate for Antioch, Oakley and Highway 4. I am not opposed to the development and their being able to plan their own land. But when it impacts Highway 4, it impacts us.” The weapons station project is not yet a done deal. It’s currently in the draft environmental impact report (EIR) stage; a final EIR is expected next spring. The draft EIR confirms that traffic will worsen on Highway 4 east of the weapons station property if either of two projects is built out by 2030. The preferred alternative of clustered villages devotes half of the property to parks, recreation and open space. It would accommodate up to 12,272 residential units and 6.2 million square feet of commercial and retail space.

Vets from page 1A of the Bataan Death March in the Phillipines in World War II. Despite the hardships, Silva looks back on his service as “a great experience” but adds “I wouldn’t go through it again for $1 million.” Silva plans to attend the Antioch parade. “I think it’s a good idea,” he said. “I think the veterans should be honored in some way after all we went through over there for the protection of our country. We do live in the greatest country in the world. I have been in other countries and I know the difference. We have the best schools, the best teachers, the best of everything.” Another of the grand marshals will be Benicia resident Richard Lundin, 72, a major general in the Northern California Army Reserve. Lundin served in three wars – Korea,

tion and within the next two decades are expected to constitute a full quarter of Americans. Seven in 10 Latinos are currently U.S. citizens, either by birth or by naturalization. Although often treated as a monolithic ethnic group, Latina/os differ in their racial and ethnic identities, religious beliefs, health status, socioeconomic status and language patterns. Lumping all these groups under the rubric of “Latino” or “Hispanic” masks

important demographic and socioeconomic differences and perpetuates negative stereotypes. The Hispanic/Latino montage represents 43 Spanish-speaking countries, including Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Hondurans, Cubans, Dominicans, Costa Ricans, Salvadorans, Colombians, Bolivians, Guatemalans and Peruvians. Latina/os comprise a diverse mixture of European, indigenous, American Indian and African backgrounds.

More than half of Mexican-Americans own their own home. By 2012, it is estimated that 40 percent of the nation’s first-time homebuyers in the United States will be Hispanic. The number of Latino eligible voters increased 21.4 percent between 2004 and 2008, the largest percentage increase of any group, and a rate of growth that outstripped the increase in the adult Latino population overall, which was only 13.7 percent.

The other possible project, known as the Concentration and Conservation Alternative, places most of the housing, retail and commercial development north of Willow Pass Road. It would accommodate up to 10,203 residential units and 4.8 million square feet of commercial and retail space. “The analysis indicates that traffic conditions will degrade at many locations in the future, with or without either alternative,” the draft EIR states. “Both alternatives would result in potentially significant impacts on the transportation network.” The preferred alternative is projected to have potentially significant traffic impacts on six freeway segments, most of which are on Highway 4 (the other two are on Highway 680 north of southbound highways 4 and

242). The Highway 4 segments that would worsen are: • East of westbound Highway 242 in the afternoon commute. • East of westbound Willow Pass Road in the morning and afternoon. • East of eastbound Willow Pass Road in the afternoon. • East of eastbound San Marco Boulevard in the afternoon. “These six freeway segments operate at acceptable levels under existing conditions, but would exceed the established performance threshold with the traffic from the preferred (development) alternative,” the draft EIR states. In addition, congestion will increase on 11 highway ramps, including those on Highway 4 at Railroad Avenue in the morning,

Bailey Road in the morning and afternoon, San Marco Boulevard in the morning and afternoon and Willow Pass Road and Port Chicago Highway in the morning. The document’s main suggested mitigation measure is: “Prior to approving a specific development, the City of Concord shall require future developers at the site to contribute a fair share of the cost to construct planned improvements on the adjacent freeway system as determined in coordination with Caltrans and the Contra Costa Transportation Authority.” But it cautions, “Even with the implementation of this mitigation measure, this (traffic) impact will remain significant and unavoidable.” To read the draft EIR, go online to www. concordreuseproject.org.

Vietnam and the Gulf – and under 11 presidents. He believes it’s particularly important to honor World War II veterans, who are “dying at a rate of one thousand a day,” he said. “We have to honor them every time we can.” Regardless of the war, Lundin and his fellow vets in the VFW, American Legion, the Elks and Lions are always ready to help out a former serviceman in need. Recently they came to the aid of a guy down on his luck without money for food for his family. “When there is a need, there is a network,” he said. This year his focus is on honoring noncommissioned officers, which he summed up by saying, “No sergeants, no soldiers; no soldiers, no army; no army, no nation.” Antioch resident Leo Fontana served in World War II, the highlight of which was a 3½-month stretch in England manning a

.50-caliber anti-aircraft gun when German planes were bombing the country. “I am glad that they recognize the veterans,” said Fontana, another grand marshal. “It’s nice that they keep the faith and there’s people recognizing these things.” At 11 a.m. on Nov. 11, 1918, World War I concluded when Germany’s Kaiser Wilhem II agreed to President Woodrow Wilson’s conditions for ending the war, and a general armistice was declared. A year later Wilson proclaimed Nov. 11 as Armistice Day, which Congress later resolved “should be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations.” The name would later be changed to Veterans Day to include those who have fought for the

United States in the several wars that have followed “the war to end all wars.” Veterans Day has never quite gotten the respect of other national holidays, however. Many people not employed by the government will likely be at work on Wednesday, Nov. 11. For seven years in the 1970s, Veterans Day lost its historical connection to the armistice when it was moved to Monday to accommodate three-day weekends before being moved back following protests by veterans. To let the committee know of veterans who would like to participate, or to get more information on the Veterans Day Parade, call Jim and Susan Davis at 925-757-2020 or e-mail jd4antioch@aol.com.

I could almost hear Jamaican steel drum music coming from her Tiki hut. Marley was happy, and all for a mere $250. A day after she finished her antibiotics, she died. We noticed an unpleasant odor coming from the Tiki hut. I was heartbroken and ticked off at the same time. She had another two good years left in her, I had been assured by the doctor! I called the vet and described our grizzly discovery. I also demanded a refund for all the money we had invested in her treatment. The nurse offered her condo-

lences but also refused any refund. She told me that if they gave refunds for treatments that still resulted in a pet’s death, they would be out of business. Wow, that doesn’t sound good. How many patients of theirs have died? Then she had the nerve to offer me a hamster autopsy – for $100! I angrily rejected her offer and hung up. We then had to dispose of poor Marley, who lay peacefully decomposing in her Tiki hut. We played “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” while lowering her entire cage into a big, black garbage bag. She’s in a better place. I imagine she’s sporting a thick, healthy coat of butterscotch fur, kicking back and listening to some mellow steel drum music in her Tiki hut in the sky. R.I.P., Marley.

Lions tie up Wildcats by Dave Roberts

The ECYF Pee Wees rolled over West Pittsburg 25-0.

Staff Writer

ECYF Lions pounce on Pitt The East County Lions Scouts level turned in a gutsy performance in a game against West Pittsburg on Oct. 3. The defense was led by Connor Gasperson, Kevin Moore, Justin Bergen, Sean Bradley, Bryan Garcia, and Ryan Fithian; the offense by Cooper Gardner, Jack Murphy, Victor and Nicholas Montez, and Jacobi Padilla, Ryan Jackson and Isaiah Baldwin. With the game at a defensive stalemate, the Lions controlled the line of scrimmage the entire contest. The Scouts look forward to the Livermore Cowboys next week. The ECYF Pee Wees rolled over West Pittsburg 25-0. Michael Goodwin scored on three touchdown runs and Jesse Gregerson added another on handoffs from Joe Sweeney. The Lions offensive line of Zachary Harris, Brandon Tatum, Jack Smith, Bradley Carr and Jake Gigliotti took control of the game in the third quarter. A swarming

defense, led by Jesse Gregerson, Domonic Espino, Julian Martin, Preston CharlesMerrill and Isaiah Clement, shut down the Spartan offense all game. The Pee Wee team improved its season record to 3-1 and notched its fourth defensive shutout of the season. The 3-1 Jr. Midgets beat West Pitt 22-0, scoring on two TDs – one by Austin Solari and one by Martell Banks – and extra-point kicks by Geovanni Graham. The defensive standouts were Alex Espino, Michael Figaroa, Nikko Ortiz, Alex Barlett, Jesse Barker, Justin Young, Savonte Perry and Ivan Oseguera. The Jr. Midgets held West Pitt to less than 75 yards of offense. The Midgets won 30-0 to boost their record to 3-1. The Midget defense allowed only one first down in the game, and offensive and defensive lines dominated play throughout the game.

Liberty’s football team faltered on offense, comitting eight false starts, but rallied in the fourth quarter to tie Oakland 14-14 Friday night. “It’s the most inconsistent we played all year,” said Coach Nate Smith. “We shot ourselves in the foot with penalties that took away our drives. Offensively, it was probably the worst game we played. I thought we did a decent job on defense – they had a heck of a tailback and a great receiver. I thought we did a good job holding them to 14 points.” The Lions tied the game with just over five minutes left on a six-yard run by Shawn Vasquez followed by a two-point conversion on a run by quarterback Devyn Parsons. “We false-started on the first twopoint conversion – it pushed us back,” said Smith. “Devyn scrambed and ran through two would-be tacklers into the end zone. That was a real courageous effort.” The tie against an Oakland team Liberty lost to last year provides the Lions with a 3-1-1 record in the first half of the season – an improvement over last season’s 2-3 start. But Smith isn’t resting on any laurels. “We won three games that we should have won,” he said. “We would have been disappointed if we had not won those games. Last night we should have won but we did not play our best football.” He’s looking to the start of league play, hosting 2-3 Antioch on Friday, Oct.

Shawn Vasquez, 26, breaks through defenders and into the end zone with about five minutes remaining in Friday’s game against Oakland. 16 at 7 p.m. “It will be a good game,” said Smith. “Antioch and us are pretty even on paper coming in. I think it will be a real battle. If we play how we can play, we will be all right. But they have some good athletes. I think it will be a very competitive game. That’s how I expect every BVAL game to be this year.” In other football action Friday, Pittsburg, off to a slow start in the first four weeks, exploded for 51 points while holding Fremont-Oakland to just six. Freedom, 0-5, took a much-needed bye week, and gets ready to take on what might be the toughest team in the BVAL, 5-0 Deer Valley, on Friday night at Deer Valley. Antioch also was off on Friday.

Patriots take a pass on defeat versus Falcons by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

Photo by Dave Roberts

Savanna Shelton of Heritage gets ready to spike the ball in the Patriots’ 3-1 victory over Freedom last week.

Many team sports have a glamor position – in football, the quarterback runs the show; in baseball, the pitcher is the center of attention; in basketball, the center is often dominant around the hoop. In volleyball, it’s the hitter who makes the biggest impression as she locks her eyes on the ball that the setter has lofted 15 feet, leaps high to meet it in mid-air as she coils her body, brings her arm back like a sledgehammer and rockets the ball over the net in just the right spot, sending opposing players sprawling to the floor in a desperate and often vain attempt to keep it from hitting the hardwood. It’s the most exciting play in the sport, rightfully earning its violent moniker: kill. But there are other less-heralded skills in volleyball that don’t show up in the box score but are just as vital to victory, one of which is passing. The hitter, of course, will never get the chance to spike the ball if it never reaches her. Heritage’s Ashleigh Reed was named Player of the Game for her passing skills, which contributed to one of the Patriots’ best passing games of the year in a 3-1 victory over Freedom last week. “Our passing was phenomenal. Ashleigh Reed is our libero – she just did a great job,” said Heritage Coach Janet Hannigan, referring to the defensive specialist position. “Our team’s passing tonight was better than any other night. We just couldn’t get the balls to go down for us, to get the kills that we needed.” The match, which was tight and hard-fought through-

out, actually started out in Freedom’s favor: the Falcons won the first game 25-23 in a great comeback after having fallen behind 17-8. Heritage jumped to a 9-5 lead in the second game but then it was nip-and-tuck until the Patriots squeaked by 25-22. The third game was a similar seesaw squeaker with Heritage again winning 25-21. And ditto for the fourth and deciding game, won by Heritage 25-22 with a soft tap over the net by Maddie Hancock that the Falcons were unable to return. “Our offense was lacking in the beginning, and we had to keep fighting,” said Hannigan. “Freedom played much better offensively this time than the last time we saw them. We were kind of struggling again mentally. But we were able to pull it off and fight through it. They figured out some nice shots to play on us. It took us a while to figure out defensively what to do. But once we did, we were all right.” The win bumped the Patriots’ league record 5-2 and 16-6 overall. While those are strong marks, Hannigan said her team needs to work on preparing for and challenging the stronger teams like Liberty and Deer Valley after having played a lot of not-so-great teams in non-league tournaments earlier in the season. “I don’t know that we played the higher-level teams that we needed to play,” she said. “When we have two teams that are really, really strong, it’s hard to gear up for those emotionally and mentally. But it’s something that we are working on. Liberty and Deer Valley definitely are two teams we have to try and beat this round.” Liberty, which won its first encounter 3-0 on its home court, will be traveling to Heritage for the rematch on Tuesday, Oct. 20 at 6 p.m.

Lions rock the house East County Cheer rocked the house at Great America recently, taking home seven first-place and one secondplace title and showing the rest of the competition that hard work and pure dedication pays off. The Lady Lions head to Six Flags on Oct. 18 to compete in the Jamz cheer and dance competition. On the gridiron, the Scout-level East County Lions dominated the Livermore Gladiators in a scrimmage last weekend, finding the end zone four times. In a wellbalanced attack, running backs Dante Lucido, Edgerrin Flores and Gaudie Campbell all ran for touchdowns. The running game was led by key blocks from Kevin Moore, Nicholas Laughlin, Ryan Fithian, Zachary Hodges and Connor Gasperson. Quarterbacks Jay Butterfield and Cooper Gardner completed passes to Jacobi Padilla, Sean Bradley, Cole Gregerson and Ryan Jackson. The Lion defense frustrated the Gladiator offense all day. Bryant Garcia, Hunter Karbowski, Dalton Houston, Logan Shirk, Jacob Romeo, Peyton Borrelli, Justin Bergen, Eric Bergen and Jacob Denver made the big plays, preventing the Gladiators from finding paydirt. The Jr. Pee Wee Lions continued to improve and play hard, notching a 24-7 win over Livermore. Angelo Page, Jason Ternes, Ronnie Rivers, Able Ordaz and

Bubba Dentoni led the defense, while Able and Brodie (one touchdown apiece) and Ronnie Rivers (two touchdowns) spearheaded the offense. The ECYF Pee Wees romped at Livermore 61-0. The Lion D, led by Jesse Gregerson, Dominic Espino, Preston Charles-Merrill and Isaiah Clement, continued to prevent opponents from putting any points on the board in 2009. The Lions’ powerful running game was led by Michael Goodwin and Ryan Payne, each of whom scored two touchdowns. Edwin Flores, Zachary Harris, Connor Montgomery, Dominic Espino and Jesse Gregerson each scored once. The O line of Jack Smith, Brandon Tatum, Bradley Carr, Chad Dias and Zachary Morrow were dominant all day. The Jr. Midgets won 32-6, highlighted by two TDs by Ivan Oseguera. Austin Solari and Jesse Barker scored one TD each, and Geovanni Graham made four extra-point kicks. The Lion defense held Livermore to under 70 yards and one TD. East County defensive standouts Alex Camillii Alex Espino, Christian Cecchi and the Banks brothers – Artrell and Martrell – all gave outstanding performances. The Midget Lions took home one more victory, beating Livermore 33-6. All four levels of the East County Lions go into next weekend’s game against Pleasant Hill 4-1.

They just try to help each other out. I couldn’t ask for a better group of girls.” The loss dropped the Patriots to 1-4 in league play, but they remained a positive 6-4 overall. Araujo said the team, whose starting lineup contains all seniors except one player, is doing better than it had last year. “There’s a lot more team unity than there has ever been in the past,” she said. “The girls are doing good, and they should keep up the hard work, because the season is not over.”

MILESTONES

OBITUARIES William Loring Cramer, Jr. William Loring Cramer, Jr. passed away on Friday, Oct. 2 after a short battle with cancer. Throughout the ordeal he remained courageous, courteous and ever hopeful. His loving family was always by his side. He was 47 years old. William was born on Nov. 29, 1961 in Oakland to William and Betty Cramer. He was the oldest of the four children. In the family, William was known as Stevie, a nickname given to him early on. His friends knew him as Bill or Billy. William was a generous and caring person. He was always ready to give his mother any assistance she needed. He was the peacekeeper of the family, extending his calmness over any conflict. He was always looking out for the well-being of his brother, sisters and friends. William was a big sports fan. He loved to watch sports, especially NASCAR racing and football. As a young man he played in many sports. He was very excited when his nephew Joseph started playing high school football. He was looking forward to going to his games. William worked for more than 25 years at UPS. He was proud of his employment there and the people he worked with. He has many UPS mementos in his house. Over the years, many of his gifts to the family were

UPS related. His two youngest nieces would call out “Uncle Stevie!” every time they would see a UPS truck. William also loved to travel to tropical locations. He spent many vacations in Hawaii, Mexico and the Caribbean. Lately, Lake Tahoe had become his favorite location. His favorite place there was the Pine Cone Resort. It was fitting that he spent his last trip there with his family. William is predeceased by his father, William L. Cramer Sr. He is survived by his mother, Betty Cramer; brother Anthony Cramer; sisters, Rebecca Cramer of Fremont and Kellie Cramer-Nguyen and brother-in-law Huy Nguyen of Discovery Bay; nephews, Daniel Ramirez and Joseph Castro; nieces, Victoria Cramer, Vanessa and Haley Nguyen (aka his Baby Chipmunk); and his beloved cat Chippy. A memorial service to remember and celebrate Bill’s life was held on Monday, Oct. 12 at The Cornerstone Fellowship in Livermore. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Bill’s memory may be made to the American Cancer Society.

Kee Choo Kee Choo, 76, passed away peacefully on Monday, Oct. 5 at his home in Brentwood after a bout with cancer. Kee was born in Pookchung, Korea and moved to Seoul at the age of 7. He attended Kyunggi High School and later graduated from Yeonsei University with a degree in chemistry. He worked hard to bring his family to the United States in 1978 and settled in Sunnyvale, where he began a very successful career at Motorola working as a graphic

designer. In 1991 he relocated to Tempe, Ariz., where he continued his work with Motorola before retiring in 2002, after having won several awards for his graphic design work there. In 2006 he moved back to California in order to be closer to his children and grandchildren. There are many people who will treasure his memory, only a few of whom are mentioned here. His beloved wife, Grace Choo, whom he married in the winter of 1960 in Seoul, resides in Brentwood. Still living in Korea is his sister, Wool Sook Choo, as well as his stepbrother, Byung In Choo. Kee’s son, John Choo, lives and works in San Jose. His daughter and son-in-law, Rosie and Jay Conte, live in Pleasanton with Kee’s beloved grandchildren, Amanda and Zak. His daughter, Connie Choo, resides in San Francisco. Kee Choo worked hard throughout his life for his family and will forever be remembered for that.

Fitness – it’s all about motivation by Christian Aguirre Correspondent Have you ever wondered how some people are able to maintain amazing bodies while you struggle with your weight? What do they know that you don’t? When you boil it down, the answer is simple. The missing link between you and your ideal body is good old motivation. A healthy dose of motivation coupled with determination will get you almost anything in life. So how do you know if you’re genuinely motivated? • Motivation will tell you to get out of bed for an early workout. • Motivation will nag you to put down the doughnut. • Motivation makes passing on fries a reflex. • Motivation makes a sweat-drenched workout exciting. • Motivation constantly reminds you why you do what you do. If your motivation levels are lacking, follow these steps to turn on your motivation.

Step 1: Pinpoint your motivator. Motivation stems from setting a goal. What is your goal? Why do you want to get into great shape? Once you uncover your personal motivator, you’ll find that motivation flows quickly your way. Ask why you want to lose the weight. Don’t say something vague like you want to “be thinner” or “look more attractive.” Dig deeper – there is a very specific motivator in your life; you simply need to uncover it.

Here are some possible motivators: • I want to have more energy to keep up with the kids. • I want to improve my health through weight loss to extend and improve my life. • I want to lose 15 pounds before my vacation. • I want to restore my confidence to wear sleeveless shirts. • I want to regain my figure to impress and attract my significant other.

Step 2: Make it official. Write down your motivator for getting into great shape and post it where you’ll see it often – next to your alarm clock, on the bathroom mirror or in your car. Each time you see your written motivator, take a moment to visualize yourself accomplishing your goal. Make the scene as clear in your mind as possible. This is a powerful tool for maintaining your focus and direction.

Step 3: Be practical. It’s game-plan time. Be practical in your planning rather than throw out ideas you know you won’t stick with. With any weight loss goal it’s important to 1) maintain a healthy low-calorie diet and 2) participate in a consistent and challenging exercise program. Plan a routine that will fit into your schedule and you’ll be more likely to stick with it. And choose an exercise program you enjoy – don’t force yourself to jog every day if you hate jogging.

Step 4: Call for backup. Enlist the support of your friends, fam-

ily and co-workers. Tell everyone about your goal. You’ll be surprised how supportive most people will be. By being open about your goals you’ll also be an encouragement to others to make healthy changes in their own lives. Call me (510-919-6806) or e-mail me (alo-

hafitness@hotmail.com) today to get started on the program that will transform your life. And visit www.alohahealthandfitness.com for more information. Christian Aguirre is a personal fitness trainer at Aloha Fitness.

Forget about that bowl of cold breakfast cereal or the same old sandwich for lunch. It’s time to give those meals a healthy makeover. And the tortilla is just the ingredient to put a healthy meal together in minutes. Elizabeth Somer, registered dietician and nutritionist, offers some easy and delicious ideas for wrapping up healthier meals every day. “The most important thing you can do to boost your nutrition is to double your current intake of vegetables,” says Somer. Sneak them into your favorite foods by adding baby spinach to a veggie or bean wrap made with whole-wheat tortillas; adding green peas and carrots to canned soups; or including a salad in at least one meal every day. To ensure strong bones throughout life, make sure to get at least three servings of calcium- and vitamin Drich foods each day. Nonfat milk is an obvious source, but there are other ways to get calcium. “For example,” says Somer, “you get the calcium equivalent of a glass of milk in every Mission Life Balance tortilla. Or, drink calcium- and vitamin D-fortified orange juice.” – Courtesy of Family Features

Working miracles on stage The El Campanil Children’s Theatre opens its 2009-10 season with the Tony award-winning “The Miracle Worker” by William Gibson. The theater is located at 602 W. Second St in Antioch. Performances take place Friday, Oct. 16 and Saturday, Oct. 17 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 18 at 2 p.m. A school performance will be given Thursday, Oct. 22 (call for 925-7579500 for details). “The Miracle Worker” is based on the life of Helen Keller (played by Jordyn Foley of Loma Vista Elementary School in Brentwood), who was left deaf and blind following a serious illness in infancy. “The Miracle Worker” explores the true story of 6-year-old Helen and her teacher Annie Sullivan (played by Brandi Church of Antioch’s Dallas Ranch Middle School), who brought the gift of language and compassion into Helen’s dark and silent world. Helen’s parents, Capitan Keller (Antioch resident Jason Pitak) and his wife Kate (Brentwood resident Ally Moffatt) were heartbroken when they couldn’t find anyone to help their “afflicted” daughter. They were considering placing Helen in an asylum until Sullivan came to the Keller household to tutor Helen and “unlock the treasure that is inside.” Based on the actual memoirs of Helen Keller, playwright Gibson believed that true story “exemplifies the American Dream.” Directed by Sharon Redman,

“The Miracle Worker” features highly physical scenes that allow its two leading ladies to create a compelling battle of wills, such as the scene in which Sullivan makes a lesson out of breakfast and teaches the rebellious Helen to sit at the table, eat with utensils and fold her napkin. Touching, tender and often funny, “The Miracle Worker” makes for an ideal family theater experience this October, National Arts & Humanities Month. Other cast members include Ryan Enriguez of Brentwood as James Keller, Evelyn Owens of Pittsburg as Aunt Ev and Megan McNesby of Antioch as Viney. Neighbor children are portrayed by Kevin Collins of Antioch and Claire Huang of Brentwood. Brentwood resident Joshua Foley plays young Helen’s doctor; Antioch resident Sarah Nichols plays Dr. Anagnos, head of the Perkins School of the Blind; and Brentwood residents Amelia Towse, and Megan and Zachary Welker, plus Antioch resident Tahlia Aghily and Pittsburg resident Gabby Barrett serve as blind students of the Perkins School. Other cast members are Austin LaBier of Antioch and Volcana Jupiter of Pittsburg. An ASL interpreter will be available for some performances. Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors (62 and over) and $8 for youth (17 and under) and may be purchased in

advance at the ticket office, 604 W. Second St. (next door to the theater) Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and one hour before showtime. To purchase tickets by phone, call 925-757-9500 or visit www.elcampaniltheatre.com. For special or handicapped seating, call the ticket office at 925757-9500. Next up for the El Campanil Children’s Theatre are auditions for “The Velveteen Rabbit” on Monday, Oct. 19 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the El Campanil Theatre.
