Seeking to right Poultry in motion historical wrong by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer Antioch historian and lifelong resident Elizabeth Rimbault is working to correct what she feels has been a long-overlooked mistake. When William Wiggin Smith founded Antioch in 1851, he staked out a portion of land near the river as his own, calling it Smith’s Point. Smith, who according to Rimbault was a master carpenter, built three houses on the land. But a legal snafu after Smith’s death in 1898 changed the name to “Rogers’ Point” – a moniker that has stuck ever since. Rimbault, who recently tran-

scribed Smith’s diary into a book, wants the city to issue a proclamation to change the name back, honoring Antioch’s founding father. The area is located near the end of Fulton Shipyard Road. “We spent the entire 1900s calling it Rogers’ Point, and it’s like everything that Smith did or contributed to the community was just kind of wiped off the face of the earth,” Rimbault said. Rimbault noted that Smith is the only one with the legal claim to that land, and reverting his name would be the proper thing to do. She said Smith received the first United States Land Title to see Wrong page 22A

Putting a cork in underage drinking by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer No matter how many times Megan Joseph looks at the statistics, the numbers are still sobering. According to the 2009 California Healthy Kids Survey, 20 percent of seventh-graders polled in the Antioch Unified School District said they’ve drunk alcohol within the past 30 days. That figure is 21 percent in the Pittsburg Unified School District. In the Liberty Union School District, 49 percent of 11th-graders polled said they’ve been sick after drinking. Joseph, the policy coordinator for the year-old East County Alcohol Policy Coalition, hopes to help bring those numbers down by holding liquor stores accountable and changing an environment where underage drinking is becoming more common. The coalition is organized by Center for Human Development, and similar

if you started at 21. That has a lot to do with brain development.” Members of the coalition, which Joseph said range between 10 to 15 and growing, have been talking with members of the community about the problem of underage drinking and studying alcohol distribution at major local events, such as the Contra Costa County Fair, Brentwood CornFest and Pittsburg Seafood Festival. Right now, the coalition is working with liquor stores to make sure they follow California’s “Lee Law,” which mandates that no more than one-third of window ads hawk alcohol. Joseph said the group wants to create a responsible alcohol merchant rewards program for stores that follow the Lee Law, and encourage the separation of regular energy drinks from those mixed with alcohol. On Tuesday, the coalition will conduct a training session with several local vendors to make sure see Drinking page 22A

Special Kids’ holiday invitation by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

To say that December is a busy month for members of the Special Kids Foundation is like calling Hurricane Katrina a drizzle. But for the families and directors of the nonprofit organization who work year-round to bring normalcy, consistency and joy to their children’s lives, the hectic holiday season is all about celebration. “Oh, my gosh, the holidays are crazy, but in a good way,” said Lisa McBride, founder of the Special Kids Foundation. “We’re doing all the things families do, but with an eye toward making it a good experience for our kids with special needs. It’s a balancing act, but it’s worth it.” And this year, McBride and the countless families and friends of East County kids with special needs will be doing what they can to share the season with those who share their lives. On Saturday, Dec. 4 from 9 to 11 a.m. at Smith Family Farms, 4400 Sellers Road in Brentwood, special-needs children and their families are invited to a two-hour private audience with Santa, including a complimentary photo. The annual event is an easygoing way for special needs families to share the holidays. “We understand the angst that all families with children having special

Chanukah fest lights The Streets Chabad of the Delta, a Jewish outreach and awareness organization, invites the public to Brentwood’s first outdoor Chanukah Festival at The Streets of Brentwood, 2565 Sand Creek Road, on Sunday, Dec 5 – the fifth night of the eight-day holiday – from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., featuring food, music and a fire-juggling show, followed by the lighting of a 9-foot-tall menorah (Chanukah candelabra) that will be set up there for the duration of the Chanukah holiday. Chanukah begins Wednesday night, Dec. 1 and continues through Dec. 8. It commemorates the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem following the Jews’ victory over the ancient Assyrian-Greek Empire, which sought to prevent them from practicing their faith. Chanukah also propagates the universal message that ultimately good will prevails over evil, freedom over oppression and light over darkness. Chabad, an international organization inspired by the leadership of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, operates more than

3,000 centers worldwide and is the largest network of Jewish and social services in the world. Chabad sponsors thousands of public menorah lightings across the country, from the White House lawn to the streets of midtown Manhattan to Union Square in San Francisco to malls and parks from coast to coast. “The significance of Chanukah today is a reconfirmation of faith and hope,” said Rabbi Dovber Berkowitz, director of Chabad of the Delta. “Brentwood’s first public menorah lighting proclaims the universal message of religious freedom and tolerance, so critical in light of today’s world situation. In ancient times our ancestors rededicated the Temple in Jerusalem with the menorah. Today, we rededicate ourselves to making this world a better and brighter place. We look forward to welcoming everyone at a warm and happy celebration.” For further information, visit www. jewishredwoodcity.com or call 925-2388770.

“KEEP YOUR HOME” DELAYED A few months ago I told you about the $1.83 billion government aid program called “Keep Your Home California” that was to roll out November 1. It was directed towards California homeowners who are upside-down in their homes, unemployed, having trouble making their mortgage payments, and/or any combination of the above. Part of the program was to help homeowners make payments, another was to help reduce the balance of the mortgages. Here it is almost December, and the program is still “on hold.” The reason given for the delay is “logistical issues.” They say they plan to have the program up and running by sometime in January. In the meantime, they are encouraging homeowners to not wait for the program, but to continue to try to work out a loan modification, short sale, or other foreclosure alternative with their lenders. I have several opinions on this latest development. First, I do agree with their advice that you shouldn’t wait for this program. Part of the reason for the delay is that they opened up the program to Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae loans,

R IDE

AND

W IN

which enlarges the number of people that may qualify for this program exponentially. While that may sound like good news, consider that they didn’t approve any new funding for the program. So the odds of getting approved for help from this program just got exponentially worse. The other reason for the delay is getting all the lenders and their investors on board (far from a guarantee), getting their software systems up to speed and getting their people trained on it. Seems like every time we turn around there is a new government program that is announced with much fanfare as the “solution” to our problem (TARP, HAMP, HARP, HAFA, FHA Short Refi, QE2, etc.). They usually predict that millions will be helped, but the actual number helped is usually a fraction of that. This one appears to be more of the same. (Sigh....)

Search begins for next Liberty principal by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Gene Clare retired as the principal of Liberty High School in 2000, but for the next three weeks he’ll be back in his old seat, filling in as the Liberty Union High School District searches for a replacement for Tim Halloran, who left his principal duties last week. Clare, the district’s assistant superintendent of administrative services, will split the role with Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Eric Volta, former principal of Freedom High School. The two will hold down the fort at Liberty until winter break begins on Dec. 20. Halloran, who served as principal at Liberty for seven years, has moved on to the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District as the superintendent of secondary education, managing curriculum and standards for grades seven through 12. He will oversee operations at three high schools, one continuation high school, five middle schools and two K-8 schools, but it’s a challenge he’s ready for. “I’ve been at Liberty for eight years, and I was a principal in another school district prior to coming here, so I think it’s time to move on and try something new,” Halloran said. “It’s funny. I never even thought I’d be a principal, let alone hold a district position, but I think I have a way to connect with more students with a higher position. “I was a math and science teacher at the middle and high school level. I thought I was connecting with a lot of students then, but I was only getting a select group that had been assigned to my class. As an administrator, I get to oversee programs and activities and interact with more students. I’m looking forward to my new opportunity, but I’m definitely going to miss Liberty High School. This will always be a special place to me.” Halloran’s two children, Jake and Katie, attend Liberty, and Halloran has no plans to uproot them from a high school of Liberty’s excellence. He said it will be nice to come back to campus and be just a dad, but it will also create some bittersweet moments, such as when Katie graduates next June. “I’ll just be another dad at graduation and I’ll get to focus all of my attention on Katie. But at the same time, it’ll be tough because I’ve watched the seniors grow over their four years here, and it’s going to be hard not being able to shake their hands and wish them well in their futures. I’ll miss those moments – sharing in the students’ successes.” That duty will go to the next principal, whom the district plans to select in early December. Applications for the position will be accepted through Nov. 29, and the board will screen applicants and conduct interviews. But according to Superintendent Jerry Glenn, the board isn’t expected to make a decision by the regularly scheduled Dec. 8 meeting. A special session will likely be scheduled for the following week – but only if the board finds a worthy candidate. “We’ve got about 25 applicants now, and I expect we’ll get about 40 altogether,” said Glenn. “But if none of them are what we’re looking for, then we won’t hire someone just to fill the position. Liberty is our

flagship school, and the role of principal is a very important job. Filling that position is not to be taken lightly. We aren’t going to hire someone until we have the right person.” If the board is unable to find a replacement by the end of the year, an interim principal would be set in place for the third quarter, which begins Jan. 3. Until then, Clare and Volta are ideal for the job, Glenn said, as they are two of the most experienced administrators in the county. Volta is looking forward to slipping back into the role of principal. “I miss being on campus, watching students learn and teachers teach. I miss being in the middle

of all that energy, so I’m looking forward to spending a few weeks at Liberty to get to know the campus on a deeper level. I think that will help me be a better administrator.” Glenn said Volta and Clare will make an excellent team to fill out the remainder of the semester, but it will be difficult to find a permanent replacement for Halloran. “Tim will be missed very much,” Glenn said. “He’s left big shoes to fill, not only because he’s a big guy, but he’s been the symbol of Liberty High School for many years. His presence and leadership will be missed. We wish him success in his future endeavors.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

New Brentwood LMC site moving ahead by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

They’re not quite ready to roll out the carpets and plug in the computers, but Los Medanos College trustees are nevertheless one step closer to establishing a permanent campus in Brentwood. “This is big for us, and we are obviously very excited to have the opportunity to have a new site that’s bigger, and better able to serve the needs of the community,” said Tim Leong, communications and community relations director for the Contra Costa Community College District. “This is great news.” The district’s governing board recently authorized the purchase of 18 acres near Marsh Creek Road for a satellite campus, and hopes to open escrow and begin work on the supplemental Environmental Impact Report (EIR) in the next few weeks. The new satellite campus, which will absorb the college’s current site on Sand Creek Road, will include, among other features, labs, classrooms and counseling offices, but will not provide for athletic fields or a performing arts center such as those at the main Pittsburg campus. The City of Brentwood gave the green light to Los Medanos College to pursue the project with a group of lo-

city and the developers needed to be ironed out. “Basically what is happening is that in 2004, when the Vineyards was established, there was a deal between the developers and the city about how it would be built out,” said Casey Mc-

Cann, Brentwood community development director. “Today that agreement is out of date and not consistent with today’s market values and needed to be adjusted to make it all possible.” The changes include the removal of an obligation by the city to build 100 affordable housing apartments at Pioneer Square at the Vineyards. Now, when LMC purchases the 18 acres and escrow closes, $1.6 million will go to the City of Brentwood toward future affordable housing projects. “This (amendment) will go a long way toward clearing the way for LMC, but there is still a lot of work to be done,” said McCann. “It is, however, a good first step.” Leong agreed. “In this business, anything can happen in this day and age when finances are more challenging, but we’re very excited to get things going.” The Brentwood Planning Commission will bring the proposed recommendations to the Brentwood City Council on Dec. 14. According to a press release from the community college district, the purchase price of the parcel is $4.8 million, which includes the donation of acreage from the original 29-acre site. Measure A 2006 bond funds will be used to purchase the site. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Tickets on sale for Stuart celebration For more than three decades, Sue Stuart has brought the sound of music to the Liberty High School campus, setting a standard of excellence enjoyed by audiences around the world through her coaching, cajoling, inspiration and the occasional “Stewy stare.” But when the bell rings and classes begin next spring, it will all happen without her for the first time in 35 years. The iconic choral director, affectionately know to her students as Mom, will hang up her baton and retire and the end of this school year. “There are hardly words to describe what Sue Stuart has meant to her students over the years,” said drama teacher Helen Dixon, longtime colleague of Stuart. “She has brought them a sense of confidence, teamwork and a love of music. These are things that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. There is a reason they call her Mom.” But Dixon and her performing arts colleagues aren’t about to let the person responsible for so much joyful

noise slip quietly out of sight. They’re putting together a gala Graduation to Retirement bash in Stuart’s honor when the school year ends in June. The event will be a black-tie-optional event held June 10, 2011 at Lone Tree Event Center in Antioch. Although the event is more than six months off, dozens of tickets have already been purchased. The deadline for determining how much of the event center will be needed is drawing near, and Dixon urges those who would like to participate to purchase tickets now. The event will include a live auction to benefit the Stuart Music Fund. Along with her late husband, Bruce, Sue has been a driving force behind the Brentwood Community Band that benefits from the fund. The fund also provides scholarships and instruments for local students. Tickets are $55 and can be ordered online at www. wix.com/helen_dixon/sue-stuart-retirement-party. For more information, e-mail suesretirement@yahoo.com.

Should I Stay or Should I Go? Voluntary Defaults by Joan Grimes, Esq. To say that these are difficult times in the real estate market would be an understatement. The melt down began with an extended boom fueled by cheap money followed by a rapid contraction of the credit supply. This lethal combination has led to an unprecedented decline in housing values. I have no doubt that the real estate market will come back and thrive. However, in the meantime, does it make financial sense to stay in a home that is underwater; where the value may not come back for 10-15 years and you may only be paying interest on the loan? What is a person to do? The mortgage industry and government would like us to feel a moral obligation to repay our debts. The argument goes that we are sending the wrong message to our children and community if we default on a loan where we had the ability to make the payments. Never mind that Wall Street banks and investors are voluntarily defaulting on office building, hotels and commercial properties across the nation. Morgan Stanley recently decided to stop paying on five San Francisco office buildings and no one is saying they have a moral obligation. It was a strategic decision to let the properties go rather than invest more money. A decision to voluntarily or strategically default on a loan can be a very emotional decision. However, if we take the emotional side out of the equation, what does it look like from a purely financial and legal standpoint? From a legal standpoint, there are three questions when contemplating a default on a home loan. They are the following: 1) how will default affect my credit? 2) will there be any personal liability from the default? and 3) will there be any tax liability? In addition, from a financial standpoint, how does the continuing payment of this debt affect other areas of my life? As a general rule, under California law, a short sale or foreclosure can remain on a person’s credit for

up to 7 years. Personal liability on a home loan is determined by the character of the loan at the time the loan was originated and then by the manner in which the lender chooses to foreclose. Generally, a loan or loans used to purchase a 1-4 unit property occupied by the borrower will have no personal or tax liability unless it is excluded loan product such as many types of governmental loans such as VA loans. On the other hand, home loans which were not used to purchase a 1-4 unit property occupied by the borrower such as refinances, lines of credit or loans on investment properties, may have both personal and tax liability. Even after considering the legal issues, we still need to think about a voluntary default from a financial point of view. Is being “house poor” causing you to not properly fund your retirement, your children’s college education or preventing you from paying bills as they come due or taking your family on vacation?

Station 93 from page 14A said Shope. “So what we do with a building like this – a fire station that really has good effects on the community – we love doing it. And this fire station, in particular, is going to bring some additional fire safety, it’s going to bring additional health benefits, and it’ll bring additional emergency preparedness, so we are really looking forward to building a project like this.” Once the new station is completed next summer, the old station will be given to the city, and City Manager Bryan Montgomery said the city will find a productive use for the building, although no plans have been finalized. As the land belonged to the Romiti family, which first came to Oakley in 1915, the new station will be particularly special to Oakley, said Anderson. Some members of the Romiti family served as voluntary firefighters for Station 93, including Albert Romiti, who lived his entire life at the corner of O’Hara Avenue and La Viña Way. Marlene Romiti, Albert’s niece, said it was tough to see the old Romiti house removed from the property to make way for the fire station, but she knows that her uncle, who passed in 1999, would be proud to know that his land was being used for the new fire house. “Albert would have been thrilled with the idea,” Marlene said. “He was one of Oakley’s two honorary fire-

Attitude of gratitude Editor: Now is the time of the year when we can look back at the past year and give thanks. We have a lot to be thankful for. Thank the voters of Brentwood for seeing right through the expensive glossy ad campaign put out by supporters of Measure F. The landowners, developers and their pet City Council member were soundly defeated. Thank the process that brought about the recommendation of Vickey Rinehart to the cemetery board. Nepotism has no place in our government, Mary. Thank the malcontents and letter writers in Discovery Bay for making the Press more fun to read. Now if we can just get the malcontents to pay the DB legal fees. That would really give us something to be thankful for. Thank the principal of Excelsior Middle School for having the guts and the backbone to discipline the students who attended a fight and were caught on video. Shame on the parents who whined about it. Give thanks that the monstrosity defacing our city park is almost finished. Too bad that the park was forever ruined

TO THE

by bad planning. Be thankful that the LUHSD finally decided that its choice location on Delta Road was a huge mistake. Shame on the Geddes family for their attempt to extort an extra $10 million from the local taxpayers. Thank Ryan the bagel king for his support of all the things that make Brentwood a great place to live. And finally, let’s all send up a prayer that the people in charge will widen the infamous Highway 4 Bypass at least as far as Walnut Boulevard. And that those same people will widen Balfour Road to Deer Valley Road before they build more houses on the west side of Brentwood. Bill Sumner Brentwood

for help, a male patron having dinner with his family took quick action and conducted the Heimlich maneuver saving the man’s life. That man is my father, and I’m forever grateful for this person’s heroic action. Other than having sore ribs, my father is doing very well now. Choking is the sixth most common of accidental deaths, with about 3,200 occurring annually. I’m confident in saying that number could be reduced by people learning basic life-saving skills, which includes the Heimlich maneuver. I’m extremely thankful there was a trained person at the restaurant when this occurred, and would like to personally thank him. After learning my father nearly lost his life in front of my mother and young daughter, I responded to Cap’s Bar and Grill in an attempt to find this man’s name. I learned he used cash to pay his dinner bill, so I have no way to locate him unless I do so through this editorial. If you are this person or know the identity of this person, please contact me through the Brentwood Police Department at 925-809-7714. Sgt. Eric Wernholm Brentwood Police

ongratulations to Eric Lim, 16, of Oakley Boy Scout Troop 152 on becoming an Eagle Scout. Eric joins brothers Brian, 25, and Kevin, 23, as the family’s third Eagle Scout. His cousin Mark Flannery is also an Eagle Scout. Eric’s Eagle project involved painting distance markers every quarter mile along the Marsh Creek Trail between Oakley and Brentwood. Working with the East Bay Regional Park District and Friends of Marsh Creek, Eric coordinated his fellow scouts and other volunteers in marking the trail in both directions. One group started in Brentwood and walked to Oakley, the other group began in Oakley and finished in Brentwood. Eric is a junior at Freedom High School and the son of Jeff and Kathy Lim, who are very proud of his accomplishment of earning scouting’s highest rank.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

A Family Affair Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays for two reasons – the food, and the fellowship. I’m not too sure how your family celebrates turkey day – hopefully it involves a lot of smiles and a football game or two – but in my family each person is responsible for a dish. One person brings desert, one person brings the cranberries, and whoever is hosting is responsible for the turkey. Add all of it up, sprinkle in laughs and love, and you have one heck of a Thanksgiving celebration. Of course, on the flip side of the coin, without everyone showing up Thanksgiving isn’t quite the same; the day just wouldn’t be complete without each dish being represented at the table. So what does any of this have to do with real estate…everything! Without an excellent team of people in your corner your real estate transaction will not be the “holiday” it should be. In no particular order you have your Realtor (desert), your lender (cranberries), and your escrow officer (turkey). No matter how you slice it, or try to get by without one, it is impossible for your transaction to be the same without all parties on the same page and present at the dinner table. Your Realtor is like that loving aunt or uncle that is always interested in what you are interested in. They’ll DVR shows that they’d never heard of before you mentioned them just to make sure they understand what you’re into. They’ll hop on the internet and check out your favorite teams stats before showing up for Thanksgiving to make sure they’re educated about your life. They get you, know what you like, and will do

everything in their power to put you in your dream house. Your lender is like that well off grandparent who you know has money, but who you also know will ask a million questions before they cut you a check. They want to know how you’ve spent your money in the past, why you feel you can handle their loan, and most importantly, how you plan on living the remainder of your life to ensure you’re able to pay them back. While you know they always have your best interest at heart, you can sometimes become frustrated because they ask soooo many questions about your finances. At the end of the day however a relationship is there that cannot be broken. Your escrow officer is like that protecting parent that never intervenes but is always watching from the sideline. They never judge, take sides, or make opinions, they simply observe and make sure everything is moving along smoothly. Nothing happens without their blessing, they watch over all of the money, and they make sure all parties are treated equally. Without this parent in your transaction, simply put, the transaction would be chaos. So before purchasing your home ask yourself this question, “could I sit-down with all of the people working for me and enjoy a Thanksgiving type family dinner?” If the answer is yes then you have the right team of professionals on your side. If the answer is no then you should re-read this article and think about who exactly is at your table. After all, it’s all about the food and the fellowship. – Advertisement

Rinehart secures seat on cemetery board by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors has approved the appointment of former Knightsen School Superintendent Vickey Rinehart to the Byron-Brentwood-Knightsen Union Cemetery District board, but an angry Supervisor Mary Piepho – whose husband David was originally recommended for the post – says the selection process was tainted. “I believe this process was fundamentally flawed, and is one that has been obviously corrupted and politicized,” said Piepho. “I will oppose the recommendation.” Rinehart was recommended by an independent panel earlier this month after public complaints and charges of nepotism were launched against David Piepho’s potential appointment. Piepho currently serves on the Discovery Bay Community Services District (CSD) board as well as the county’s Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO), which oversees land boundary and annexation issues. His term on the CSD expires in December, and unless he secures another position with a special district, he’ll be forced to give up his seat on LAFCO. “I really felt victimized by this process and believe it was flawed from the very start,” said David Piepho at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting. “I would ask that you put off making a decision.” When asked to comment on his LAFCO position, Piepho said only that “This isn’t about me; it’s about East County losing its (LAFCO) representation.” Piepho claims the appointment process was flawed because the informational packet provided to the independent panel included highly negative letters from his

Wrong from page 1A the point, something echoed with celebration in the founder’s diary. In his role of clergyman, Smith traveled often to his congregation in Stockton. The land was actually named for Smith’s wife, Jane Crocker Croswell Smith, whose name was on the deed. He decided to do that in homage to the women’s suffrage movement, Rimbault said. Many times, the city’s founder would come back to Antioch to find people on his property. W.W. Smith kept going back to San Francisco to ratify his claim, but it took 17 years to get an official document entitling “the Point,” to him. “Thursday, November 18, 1869, this is OUR Thanksgiving Day, enjoyed upon our own land,” Smith wrote in his diary. According to Rimbault, Smith’s son, William Moody Smith, attempted to gain power of attorney while his father was near suffering from dementia and near death. Because the land had been so hotly contested in the past, the judge decided not to approve William Moody’s request, but to grant a conservatorship to the founder’s

political detractors containing erroneous information. The packet also included letters supporting Piepho. Piepho also believes the supervisors’ order to form the independent panel specified that it be made up of trustees, and it ultimately included one trustee and two managers. After reviewing the transcript of that session, Board of Supervisors Chairman John Gioia said the intent of the supervisors was clear, and that managers were permissible. Supervisor Piepho usually appoints directors to the BBKUCD, but recused herself from the process when her husband applied for the open seat. Gioia then took over the review of the applicants and was set to recommend David Piepho for the post. However, Gioia pulled the recommendation at the last minute, saying he wanted to ensure the appointment process had been properly fol-

lowed. The supervisors then called for an independent panel of cemetery district members from outside the county to interview applicants and make a recommendation. The opening was re-advertised and a total of eight applicants applied for the position. Gioia and other supervisors said the situation – an appointment involving the family member of a sitting supervisor – was difficult. “Democracy is often messy,” he said. “I will say that this (situation) puts the board in a most difficult position – one that we prefer not to be in. And I don’t disagree that there were some negative, false representations made and that’s unfortunate. But there were also 12 letters of support included in the (panel’s) package.” The supervisors voted 4-1 to appoint Rinehart. Mary Piepho cast the dissenting vote. They also encouraged the board’s Public Protection Committee to complete work it has begun in order to develop a policy governing similar appointments in the future. Following the Board of Supervisors meeting, Piepho said he was glad a decision had been made: “I am pleased that the board made an appointment and that the cemetery board can get back to the business of the district.” Rinehart, who also attended the Board of Supervisors meeting, admitted it was a tough call. “Did the Board of Supervisors make the right decision?” asked Rinehart. “I think they made a difficult decision … But I’m looking forward to serving and I’m very impressed with the people on the cemetery board. They’re a very bright, sharp group. I’m happy to have been appointed.” Rick Lemyre contributed to this story. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

daughter, Sarah. After W.W. Smith’s death, the land was re-appraised for probate hearings, but somehow the name of someone associated with Smith’s estate, John Rogers, became the official name on the title. Rimbault surmised that Rogers might have purchased the land through the probate hearings, but she’s not entirely sure of what happened. “In those days, if you own it, you name it,” she said. “Somewhere along the line, Rogers becomes the owner.” Rimbault was hoping that City Council would issue a proclamation this month, closer to the land claim date, but Antioch Mayor Jim Davis said the council wouldn’t have time to give the issue its proper due right now. At the last meeting earlier this month, Davis asked that the matter be put on the agenda in early 2011. “I think it’s an attempt to correct a moral wrong that has been done in history toward Smith,” Rimbault said. Since no signage would need to be changed, a proclamation would come at no cost to Antioch, Rimbault said. She’s hoping for some form of official notice from the city, which owns the land that is now

fenced-off, and for any future references to the area be made as “Smith’s Point.” Rimbault hopes that doing so would enhance awareness of the founder, to

The liaison from the Antioch Police Department has been injured and unable to help recently, so the coalition is looking for more ways to interact with Antioch, including through the Youth Intervention Network. “We’re really proud of what we’ve done,” Joseph said. The group has been making presenta-

tions for parents’ groups and city council members throughout East Contra Costa County. The response has usually been positive, Joseph said. A presentation to the Antioch City Council in a meeting earlier this month noted that from January, 2005 to October, 2008, 17 Alcoholic Beverage Control violations were reported in Pittsburg, three in Bay Point and 36 in Antioch. Most of these, according to the presentation, were sales to

minor decoys. At that council meeting, Antioch Mayor Jim Davis called the statistics “alarming.” “I think it does demonstrate that there is a need for this program in our communities,” Davis said. “I do hope that the City of Antioch can participate in a more formal fashion going forward.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Falcons’ season ends in overtime heartbreak by Michael Dixon Correspondent

For most of Saturday night’s North Coast Section playoff game, it looked like Freedom’s varsity football team would pull off an upset and win on the road against the Granada Matadors. After forcing overtime and keeping the Matadors off the board, the Falcons lined up for a 27-yard field goal that would have ended the game. Senior kicker Robert Melena booted a strong kick, but it sailed wide left. Freedom got the ball again in the second overtime and the offense couldn’t move the ball, forcing Melena to miss another kick on the wet turf. When Granada got the ball back, senior running back George Atkinson put the game away with his second 10-yard touchdown run of the night, ending the game at 19-13. “All we needed was a field goal to win the game,” Falcons coach Kevin Hartwig said when asked if he considered running any offensive plays in the first overtime. “He’s been kicking well tonight. It’s an easy three; we’ll take that any day. We’ll stand by him any chance we get.” The Falcons had a chance to win in regulation when they got the ball with two minutes left on their own 41-yard line. They advanced it as far as the Matador 29 yard line, but a wet ball caused a bad snap, forcing the Falcons back to the 35 with seconds left. Melena tried a 52-yard

field goal and the kick was strong and on line but fell short, forcing the game into overtime. Despite the misses, Freedom would have never qualified overtime had Melena not made two regulation field goals, including a short but clutch kick from 18 yards out that tied the game with just less than four minutes remaining. Leading 3-0 after one quarter, the Falcons took a 10-0 lead when sophomore defensive back Darrell Daniels recovered a fumble and rumbled 30 yards for the score. That lead held until Granada senior defensive lineman Robert Lopez intercepted a screen pass from Freedom sophomore quarterback Dante Mayes and went 25 yards for the score. Granada then took its first lead in the fourth quarter when Atkinson scored his first touchdown of the night. The ensuing extra point was missed, keeping the score at 13-10. Atkinson, along with brother and teammate Josh Atkinson, will be playing for Notre Dame next season. George was kept in check for most of the night, but still came away with 106 yards on 20 carries. Playing in his last game as a Falcon, senior running back D’Amora Cooper rushed for 89 yards on 21 carries, included a 51-yard gain that set up the tying field goal. Senior scatback Timazray Shepherd rushed for 39 yards on nine carries while also catching three passes for 43 yards. Mayes, who as a sophomore was recently

named first team All Bay Valley Athletic League quarterback, threw 7-of-16 for 102 yards. The game was expected to be a highscoring affair. Granada came in averaging 27 points per contest; Freedom 26. The constant rain, however, kept runners and kickers from gaining traction, and made holding onto the ball difficult. The Falcons recovered every fumble committed on the wet night – two from the Matadors and six of their own. Freedom ended its season with a 5-6

record, all but one of the losses decided by less than one possession. Included in their victories was a must-win 49-10 thumping of rival Liberty on the road in a game that earned the Falcons a playoff berth. “I’m proud of these guys,” Hartwig said. “We battled, we fought through tons of adversity, and we are in the NCS playoffs.” Granada, the fifth seed in the tournament, will host No. 13 College Park on Saturday.

Defense from page 1B playoffs, and the Panthers are hungry for more after finishing the campaign 19-9 (10-5 BVAL). Fifth-year head coach John Woolery believes senior small forward Michael Crawley will play big for the Panthers. Guard Josh Jayubo should be one of the team’s best shooters, something the senior showed last year against Freedom, scoring seven points in a 13-second stretch. Woolery also likes the talent of senior forward/guard Naumjii Madoshi, a 6-5 newcomer to the varsity squad. The coach feels that this team has a chance to do something no Antioch boys hoops team has done – bring home a league pennant. “It’s one of the better teams overall in the last six or seven years that we’ve had,” Woolery said. Freedom finished fourth in the BVAL last year with a 15-9 overall record (7-8 in league play). The Falcons feel they have depth, but the team is still trying to get things sorted out. Third-year head coach Drew Torres will count on all-league selections such as senior post player Darrell Greene and senior guard/forward Andrew Garner – both are three-year varsity players. The Falcons will be bolstered by a few additions from the JV team. Torres said junior guard Jelani Hardaway has raw talent, but he’ll need more varsity experience to capitalize on it. According to Torres, sophomore James O’Neal can play either guard position and has great

NOVEMBER 26, 2010

court vision. “I feel pretty good about our talent level,” the coach said. Pittsburg looks to rebound from a season in which the Pirates went 7-18 overall and 4-10 in BVAL play. Pittsburg will be a young team this year, with only two or three seniors. The Pirates will be led by senior guard/forward Christopher Manning, junior guard Randal Gory and junior forward Nuel Ohaeri. Pittsburg head coach Clinton Williams said new players such as 6-4 sophomore center Wayne Johnson, junior guard Eddie Williams and junior swingman Juwan Blakely could make an impact. The only way to go is up for the Liberty Lions, who lost their final 17 games en route to a 4-21 season. Liberty went 0-14 against BVAL teams. Head coach Jon Heinz likes his team’s chances to improve. The Lions will be young this year, fielding only three seniors. Sophomore shooting guard Brandon White led Liberty in scoring (9.4 ppg) in his freshman year and earned all-BVAL honorable mention. Sophomore power forward Darren Meeks, who Heinz said can play all five positions, posted 8.1 points per game last year. Newcomers such as Oregon transfer and junior center Kenneth Roman plus senior point guard Matt Cisneros could also make contributions. “It’s a group of kids that work really hard,” Heinz said. “As a coach, it’s probably one of my favorite teams.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Rains from page 1B In the next chapter of an actionpacked first quarter, Hanna dashed 61 yards the next time Heritage touched the ball. Poti finished off that drive with a 19-yard touchdown run, making it 19-7. The Pirates answered on the first play of the second quarter, a five-yard pass from Mozee to Terrence Polk. Mozee lined up mainly at receiver, but went 5-for-5 for 34 yards and two touchdowns when playing QB. Vunipola finished with 89 rushing yards and one touchdown. He was also the team’s leading receiver, catching seven passes for 67 yards and one score. The Patriots piled on the points in the third quarter off two touchdown runs from Story Jr. Pittsburg scored once more on a pass from Mozee to Vunipola, but the extra point was blocked, making the score 31-20. Heritage touchdown runs by Hanna and Eikanas put the game away. While the victory got a huge monkey off the Patriots backs, King Kong lurks around the corner. Heritage will travel to Concord at 7 p.m. on Friday to face De La Salle, which finished the regular season 10-0. The Spartans have not lost the NCS title in their division since 1991, when they were bested by Pittsburg. “They’re the best team in the country. We’re just excited to have the chance to line up against them,” Haagenson said. “We’re just going to try and get the best game plan together, so we can stay in it.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Big plays doom Wolverines by Justin Lafferty

Deer Valley receiver Miles Walker, seen here earlier this year, scored the first touchdown of the game, but the Wolverines couldn’t hang on.

Staff Writer

Facing slippery conditions on Saturday night, Deer Valley’s varsity football team battled to get a grip on the ball – or San Ramon Valley’s offense. The sixth-seeded Wolves overcame a sluggish first half to top the Wolverines 27-15 in the first round of the North Coast Section playoffs. The loss ended a regular season in which No. 11 seed Deer Valley went 7-3 overall (3-2 in Bay Valley Athletic League). “I feel we gave it our all,” senior wide receiver Miles Walker said. “We made a couple of mistakes and they capitalized on them.” The game was nearly postponed due to extreme rain and wind that pelted the Danville area. Though the rain let up a bit during the game, it made for a slick football field at San Ramon Valley. The Wolves fumbled the ball six times and the Wolverines coughed it up twice. Antioch saw rain toward the end of the week, so Deer Valley wasn’t totally unprepared for the wet stuff, but it made an impact on the first half. “We’ve just got to hold that ball tight and run through the holes we’ve got,” senior RB Brian Thomas said. “I felt like we really had a good season. We had our downfalls, but I felt like we picked ourselves up. ” After recovering a first-quarter fumble by Wolves junior quarterback Zach Kline, the Wolverines drew first blood on a two-yard

touchdown run by junior Miles Walker. Five minutes before halftime, San Ramon Valley tied it up on a 13-yard scoring pass from Kline to junior wideout Patrick Worstell. A couple minutes into the third quarter, the Wolves took the first lead of the game on a 40-yard dash by junior running back Jordan Weiss, who finished with 110 yards. While Deer Valley was able to move the ball as a team on the ground, the passing game was another story. Walker led the team with 44 yards, senior running back Lamontay Marshall chipped in 41, junior Matt Smith gained 40 and Thomas finished with 33. On the first play of the fourth quarter, Wolverines senior quarterback Mike Behr was picked off by senior defensive back Kaulin Blair, who ran it 32 yards for a San Ramon Valley touchdown to make the score 20-7.

Deer Valley drove back to deep inside Wolves territory on the next possession, but Behr’s rough game continued. The captain was intercepted by senior Trent Peterson, which sparked an 88-yard scoring drive by San Ramon Valley. Behr went 0-for-5 including two interceptions. “I think we out-hit them and a couple times outplayed them. They just made a couple big plays,” head coach Rich Woods said. “We just lost to a good East Bay Athletic League team.” The Wolverines tried to get back into the game late in the fourth quarter on a two-yard touchdown run by Thomas. San Ramon Valley finished its regular season 5-5 (2-5 EBAL) and will face Monte Vista on Saturday. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Panther soccer sets sights on three-peat by Michael Dixon Correspondent

In the fall of 2008, the Bay Valley Athletic League trimmed itself to six teams. In the two seasons that have passed since then, Antioch’s boys varsity soccer team has reigned supreme. In a crowded field, the Panthers are now taking a bead on a three-peat. “We’re really hoping to go for three in a row,” Antioch head coach Julio Borge said. “It’s tough. We have a lot of good players on the roster but we’re a young team. We’re expecting to have only three or four seniors.” A season ago, the Panthers won the BVAL with a 7-3-5 league record, going 9-87 overall. Their season ended at the hands of Granada in a 3-0 playoff loss. Gone from that team are defenders Matthew Kendall and Michael Morales. Borge expects junior midfielder Jordan Cisneros and senior forward Alexis Orozco to fill their void and lead the young Antioch team.

A dark-horse threat to the Panther reign could be the Freedom Falcons. A season ago, Freedom enjoyed its most successful boys soccer season in school history, and most players are expected to return. Notable returners include senior midfielder Alejandro Hernandez and senior fullback David Hurtado. Head coach Martin Contreras also expects a spirited competition in net between senior Robert Melena and sophomore Christopher Contreras. “I lost only four seniors from last year,” said Martin Contreras. “If we have the same players as last year, we should have a great team.” The Falcons 6-4-5 record was good enough for only fourth place but included strong road games against the three teams that finished ahead of them. Although they qualified for the playoffs, the Liberty Lions finished last season with a heartbreak tie against tied Deer Valley on the final day, when a win would have given the Lions a league title. Their season was ended in

the first playoff round in a 4-0 shutout against De La Salle. Gone from that team is league MVP Josue Macias. Center-fullbacks senior Dillon Dutra, and junior Derek Bisbing, as well as junior midfielder Kyle Rainsford, are expected to fill Macias’ void. “Our league on the boys side is very competitive. A lot of the players play together in summer leagues,” said head coach Alfredo Zamora, echoing the opinion of every coach in the league. Tying Liberty for second place in the league with a 6-3-6 record was Deer Valley, whose season ended in the first round of the playoffs in a 3-1 defeat against San Ramon Valley. Head coach Nick Howliston expects strong things from the Wolverines this year, as they lost only two players from last season’s team – midfielder/forward Juan Martin, plus last season’s co-offensive league MVP, midfielder/defender Caleb Miller. The Wolverines return senior forward Aaron Huang, who netted 15 goals a season ago. Another returning impact player is senior sweeper Mike Ortlieb, named co-defensive BVAL MVP last season. The number of returning players from an already good team has Howliston excited and hopeful Deer Valley can challenge Antioch for the league crown. The Heritage Patriots finished in the BVAL cellar last season, posting a 3-10-2 league record. Eight players from that team are gone, notably defenders Michael Navarro and Kris Hagar. Although the Patriots’ record was less than stellar, it was an improvement over the previous season, when they posted no league wins. Head coach Alex Valdivia is confident Heritage soccer can improve. He expects big things from two juniors: goalie Nico Charvet and midfielder Nick Krahnke. Valdivia is also excited about a group of newcomers. “The JV players that are moving up had a very good season last year,” he said, “and we’ve been following them through the year.”

The Antioch Panthers have won the last two BVAL titles and are setting their eyes on a third. Despite a 3-8-4 league record last season, league coaches expect strong things from a Pittsburg team that returns 11 players. The Pirates’ main loss from last season is sweeper Christian Garcia, who along with Deer Valley’s Ortlieb was named co-defensive league MVP last season. Filling his void will be two seniors: center/midfielder Alejandro Gomez and forward Christian Gomez. Going into the season, head coach Pablo Gatyan considers Antioch and Deer Valley ahead of his squad, but expects strong competition from everyone. “Our team has a lot of retuning players,” said Gaytan. “We have a lot of returning seniors but we have four freshmen as well, and they have really gelled. They understand that it’s not about one guy; it’s about all 11 players.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

When enamel gets crackin’ – see a dentist While the enamel (outside covering of the crown of a tooth) is the hardest substance in the human body, undue stress on your teeth can cause them to crack. Causes include chewing hard foods (such as a popcorn kernel), biting on ice cubes, biting on a hard object such as a pen or pipe and/or clenching or grinding your teeth (bruxism). Cracked tooth syndrome is very common in teeth with large fillings and most often is seen in your back teeth. If the crack goes untreated, it can deepen or expand like a crack in a glass window, causing part of the tooth to break off. If this occurs, the tooth might need extraction or a root canal treatment in order to save it.

Some of the symptoms of this occurrence are pain in chewing, unsolicited pain, pain from cold air, no X-ray evidence of the problem and no dental decay present. Often it is difficult for the patient to determine which tooth is causing the pain. However, the absence of pain does not rule out the presence of a crack. To determine if a tooth has developed a crack invisible to the naked eye, the dentist will take a thorough dental history, including history of trauma to your teeth and history of any bite adjustments performed. The teeth in the problem area will be examined with a dental explorer. The teeth will be tested for

heat and cold sensitivity. When severe pain is elicited with temperature and rapidly subsides upon removal of the stimulus, the cause is usually a fracture. Sometimes, transillumination (light source) with magnification is used to help visualize the suspected crack. The diagnosis can be further confirmed when the dentist uses a plastic or wooden instrument or cotton roll that rests on one part of a tooth while you bite down. Pain in a specific area helps isolate the position of the crack. In certain instances, removal of a restoration (filling) is necessary to visualize the crack and assess its potential to harm the pulp (nerve).

Can cracks be treated so that the tooth can be saved? Yes. But unlike like your bones, cracked teeth don’t heal themselves. Early diagnosis leads to a better chance of success. The best solution is to have a full crown (cap) placed over the tooth to strengthen and hold the tooth together. In about 10 percent of cracked teeth, the nerve dies and root canal (endodontic treatment) will be required, along with the cementation of a post into the nerve canal before the crown is completed and the tooth restored. For more information, call Dr. Deragopian at 925-513-0100. – Courtesy of DentalSenders

health, taking care of our bodies and the organs that keep us going, but what about our brain? As we get older, our brain, like our body, needs attention and exercise. My husband will scratch his head at 7 p.m. as I watch “Jeopardy” and “Wheel of Fortune” and try to guess every answer. The goal is to keep thinking about things I normally don’t, as I shout the answers – right or wrong – with gusto. More head scratching. Brain health is a vital component of well-being, and there are many ways to make sure you keep your brain challenged and alert. Physical exercise such as walking, dancing and bicycle riding increases blood flow. A healthy diet incorporating antioxidants, fiber and whole grain are excellent, and a 4-ounce glass

of red wine is great. Reading newspapers, magazines and books, doing crossword puzzles, getting enough sleep (seven to eight hours per night is ideal) and engaging in conversation are all wonderful ways to keep those brain cells happy and active. I’m blessed that my mom is mentally active and is always recharging. Some days I can’t keep up with her – she’s the one reminding me of things. She does crossword puzzles in ink!
