City, AUSD settle student lawsuit Help wanted: a wet winter

by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

A confrontation 2½ years ago between an Antioch police officer and three students after school in Deer Valley Plaza escalated into arrests, suspensions, expulsions and litigation that has resulted in the cash-strapped City of Antioch and Antioch Unified School District (AUSD) paying out more than $750,000 to the students and their families. AUSD owes $520,000 of that total, which, as with the city, is coming out of a liability fund shared with other governmental agencies. There is a likelihood that the city and district’s premiums will be increasing as a result of the payout. “It is all very distressing,” said AUSD Board President Walter Ruehlig via e-mail. “Here we are as a fiscally prudent District fighting at every turn to preserve jobs and programs and classroom size, and we end up with a settlement for a half million dollars on a ruckus – that’s not loose change. We were caught between a rock and a hard place; the legal fees were going through the roof and were only going to get worse. Economics often plays a significant hand in these things.” City Attorney Lynn Tracy Nerland also

Former Oakleyite receives Bronze Star by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Marine Sgt. Maj. Anthony Mass, Jr. said he can’t remember all the details, and that’s understandable; he was pretty busy. They’re all listed, however, in an official summary of his actions between March and August of last year, and it all added up to the nation’s fourthhighest award for combat gallantry: the Bronze Star with a “V” device for Valor. According to the citation, then-First-Sgt. Mass (his rank at the time), a former Oakley resident now living at Camp Pendleton in Southern California, showed “unfaltering, fearless leadership” during battles on April 29 and May 30, 2008 during an operation against an insurgent stronghold. “Traveling with the lead element and selflessly exposing himself, First Sgt. Mass encouraged Marines to press forward in the face of hostile fire, as young Marines experienced enemy action for the first time,” Mass’ medal citation reads. “During the 96-hour fight, with repeated enemy counter-attacks using machine guns and mortars, his constant presence on

the line emboldened the company’s Marines.” His “vigilance and aggressive action” saved the company’s headquarters element from one attack, and in the final assault on the stronghold, Mass again led the Marines at the front of the advance, demonstrating “zealous initiative, courageous actions and exponential dedication to duty.” For the soft-spoken 40-year-old married father of three and Liberty High graduate, the recognition is almost surreal. “I really don’t know what to say; I was really surprised and I still am,” said Mass. “It’s a great honor.” Mass says that while he can’t recall all the details of the battles, there are some specifics he remembers. “I had been there (the Middle East) before,” said Mass. “But it’s hard to explain everything I was feeling. I do remember thinking that I wonder how my family would feel if they knew were I was right now. “I went into it (the battles) not really knowing what to expect. We knew from the British that it was going to be a tough fight, and

Round Table hosts Jenkins fundraiser

MOMS give back to community The MOMS Club of Antioch spent proceeds from its recent fundraiser on a Target shopping spree that benefited the Antioch organization Brighter Beginnings, which supports healthy births and children’s successful development by partnering with parents, strengthening families and helping to build strong communities. The MOMS Club purchased $660 worth of baby supplies for Brighter Beginnings, and Target augmented the effort by providing a 10-percent discount. MOMS Club also made a donation to Community Violence Solutions and has earmarked money for an Adopt a Family program for the holidays. The Club raised a total of $1,000 through a fundraiser with Insider Pages. “The Insider Pages fundraiser allowed us to raise a significant amount of money without selling anything or asking for donations,” said Veli Waller, coordinator of the event with the MOMS Club. MOMS Club President Chantell Fithian said that “giving back to the community is so important to us, and I am so proud that we are able to join together and make a difference in our community.”

Three East County Round Table Pizza restaurants are pitching in to help Freedom High student Ally Jenkins and her family. Ally came home last month following a nearly three-month stay at UCSF Medical Center, where she was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension in July. The incurable condition, which hinders the flow of blood from the heart to the lungs, required a double lung transplant, which she received from a donor in August. Despite a daily regime that includes 45 pills and a consistent exercise program (the first six months of development after transplant surgery determines a recipient’s lung capacity for life), Ally’s mom Vickee says her daughter has recovered beyond even her doctor’s expectations. “She’s doing well,” said Vickee. “It’s

definitely an adjustment trying to deal with the daily work of getting stronger, but her doctors are calling her a rock star. She has surpassed everything they could have hoped for and continue to be encouraged by her progress. “We all continue to get so much support from the community, it’s just amazing. No one has gone away. We’re just so grateful.” The fundraising event will be held Tuesday, Dec. 8 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Customers who mention Ally will have 20 percent of their order donated to the family. Participating locations are in Brentwood at 2540 Sand Creek Road (925-240-8778), Antioch at 4504 Deer Valley Road (925776-7777) and Oakley at 2190 Main St. (925-625-1700).

Health directive forum Geriatric care coordinator Suzanne Leib will host a free seminar on Dec. 9 from 10 a.m. to noon at the John Muir Outpatient Center, 2400 Balfour Road in Brentwood. “Who will speak for You? Advance Health Care Directives” provides detailed information regarding the choices individuals and families face due to accident or illness. All adults, regardless of age, need

to understand how they can exert control over their own life and death decisions. The seminar will offer an opportunity for individuals to clarify their own choices and make sure their wishes are carried out should they become unable to make their own health care decisions. Required documents will also be provided. For more information, call 925-9473300.

This turkey is cookin’ Mayor Robert “Gobbler Bob” Taylor might be a turkey according to a lot of people, but that’s just fine with more than 500 local families for which the mayor’s efforts have paid off. About six weeks ago, Taylor launched his “The Mayor is a Turkey” fundraiser benefiting the Brentwood Regional Community Chest, which provides food, toys and turkeys for 500 families every Christmas. Taylor pledged that if he got 300 donations of $8 – enough to buy one turkey for one family – he would appear at the BRCC’s packing and distribution events on Dec. 18 and 19 wearing a turkey suit. Taylor blew past his goal and reset it to 500, enough for the entire BRCC program. That goal, too, is history. As of Tuesday, donations good for 663 turkeys had arrived, and more are still coming in every day. The community’s largess will enable the BRCC to add turkey to its other year-round assistance efforts. “The money will be used to expand the number of families we are able to assist as well as provide ongoing support during the rest of the year,” said BRCC co-president Dana Eaton. “In addition to supporting families through the Community Assistance Program throughout the year, this year we were able to provide financial support to the P.A.S.S. Program at Edna Hill. This clothing closet, started by Edna Hill teacher Traci Kemper, supports children throughout our community and aligns with the mission of the Community Chest of a community supporting its own.” Taylor is stunned by the response. “The charitable giving of local people is just overwhelming,” he said. “The Brentwood spirit is just a wonderful attribution to our city. Calls are coming in from everywhere, too, not just Brentwood. People say they’ve never seen anything like this.” Taylor also announced that as a payoff for surpassing the higher goal, he would be making a series of appearances in the turkey suit. The stops will include a stint from 1 to 4 p.m.

on Dec. 19 at The Streets of Brentwood’s Community Boutique, located next to the Rave Motion Pictures Brentwood 14, where he will pose for pictures with residents and thank them personally. “There is an old Irish proverb t h at s a y s ,

‘A turkey would never vote for an early Christmas,’” said Eaton. “In this case, however, the mayor’s efforts will bring an early Christmas to over 500 families in East County.”

I’m dreaming of a wet Christmas Don’t knock the weather. If it didn’t change once in a while, nine out of 10 people couldn’t start a conversation. – Kin Hubbard The party’s over. Like a convict whose sentence got lost in the clerical shuffle, we were braced for the bad and were given the TAKE IT good: a stretch of clear UTSIDE November skies to kick off the monsoon season. But Mother Nature has stumbled onto our paperwork. It’s time to serve the sentence. It’s time to get wet. Out at sea a cortege of clouds is asGER sembling and getting ERICKSON itself pointed down the time-honored parade route. Straight at us. We should see this as a good thing. Our Golden State, no tropical rainforest under the soggiest of conditions, could use a thorough dousing. Northern California’s rainfall total for 2008-09 came to only 78 percent of normal – on the heels of 77 percent in 2007-08 and 63 percent in 2006-07. Pray that scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration got it right when back in July they predicted an El Niño winter for 2009-10. How wet will this El Niño get? The jury’s still out, but don’t leave your umbrella at home. It might be too much to ask East County folk to pray for rain – especially

fresh water runoff from the Sierra. As the sea level rises and the Sierra snowpack thins, the squeeze on the Delta – the West Coast’s largest freshwater estuary – will only get worse. We East Countyites should be the first to hop onto the harsh-winter bandwagon. Need another reason to be dreaming of a wet Christmas? Those magnificent clouds,

of course. As winter clouds roll in, sky memories are awakened and new memories made. From the Ridge Trail at Antioch’s Black Diamond Mines I’ve seen the December sky become an ocean. On its vastness sailed an armada of cumulus in disciplined formation like an invasion fleet bearing down on an enemy coastline. In January from the Miwok Trail at Brentwood’s Round Valley I’ve seen a feather of whitest cirrus suspended in the delicate updraft of dawn. And from Big Break in Oakley I’ve witnessed a sunset sky straight out of the Book of Job, spread out “hard as a molten mirror.” I know, I know. It’s easy to rhapsodize about the beauty of clouds from the safe haven of East County. In our microclimate no mighty rivers escape their banks; no mudslides bury our homes. Better yet, no subzero temperatures crack our water pipes; no blizzards send our cars careening into ditches. Winter in East County: if this is as bad as it gets, we’ve got it good. Residents of the coasts of Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas might take a less upbeat view of rainfall. When clouds are given names (Katrina, Rita and Wilma come immediately to mind), aesthetics tend to go out the window as swiftly as those clouds break through it. If clouds are hazardous to our health, they’re also indispensable to life on Earth. Four and a half billion years ago not a single cloud graced the skies of our planet. see Outside page 15A

Calendar marks local history timeline Edna Hill, Barbara Guise, Everett LeMoine donations added to museum collection by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Just in time for the holidays, the East Contra Costa Historical Society (ECCHS) has provided a gift idea for that hard-to-please recipient this holiday season – a 2010 calendar filled with fascinating historical – and local -facts and photos. “The calendar is a fun twist for learning about local history,” said local historian Kathy Leighton. “As we (ECCHS volunteers) do research and catalog the archives, we make note of significant dates in East County history, and we thought it’d be fun to compile them in a calendar. It will make a great Christmas gift for anyone who lives in this area. There are a lot of interesting little things that most people don’t know about.” The $10 calendar is filled with fun facts and important dates. For example, did you know that on Jan. 26, 1920, a robber fled the Byron Bank with $50,000, or that President Benjamin Harrison’s train stopped in Brent-

Ferries were used in the late 19th century to transport passengers and goods across the 1,100 miles of Delta waterways. Historical photos such as this, which offer a glimpse into life in East County, are featured in the 2010 East Contra Costa Historical Society Calendar. wood on April 29, 1891? The calendar, the first of its kind, also includes a historical photo marking each month. The historical photos, most of which have not been published before, offer a glimpse into life in far East County during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The month of January is marked with a photo from the 1890s, featuring a horse-drawn carriage being ferried across the Delta marshes. The ferry system was used to transport everything from people to produce to the various islands scattered throughout the Delta. Other calendar images include a 1900 photo of the Oakley Cash Store, and a shot of guests exploring the Vasco Caves.

All proceeds from the calendar sales will go toward the restoration of the Eden Plain schoolhouse, which is used as a field trip destination for local third-graders who visit the ECCHS museum. When the museum reopens for its 2010 season in March, visitors of all ages will be treated to a variety of new displays. The society has recently received several significant material donations such as artifacts that belonged to Frances Donner Wilder, a surviving member of the Donner Party, who settled in Byron. Leighton said material donations to the historical society come in waves. Sometimes

the society goes months without any donations and then suddenly the floodgates open and the volunteers get bombarded with boxes of new items and photos. “We get contacted every now and then by people who find old boxes in their garage and want to know if we want might find its contents useful. They figure if grandma kept it all this time, maybe it should go some place special. Some of us are more selective about what we accept, but I love it all. You never know what someone might bring in. Sometimes you find some real treasures – things you won’t find anywhere else. We’re thrilled that we’ve been able to acquire some real finds in the past month. We’ve received a lot of good stuff.” In addition to the Donner artifacts, a World War I Navy uniform belonging to Brentwood resident Everett LeMoine will also go on display next year. LeMoine was the fourth mayor of Brentwood, serving the city from 1952 to 1954. He also helped organize Brentwood’s first fire department in 1928. When the town’s fire truck broke down, LeMoine, along with a man named Clarence Bray, made a new fire engine out of a 1917 Chevrolet touring car by attaching water tanks and a 110-foot hose to the back. Once the new fire engine was complete, LeMoine stored it at his business, the OK Garage, located on Oak Street. LeMoine was also a charter member see Calendar page 11A

tudents at Freedom High School have organized three opportunities to give to those less fortunate this holiday season. Dana Johnston’s Leadership Class has posted banners and gotten the word out that the class is accepting unwrapped gifts for Toys for Tots, clean and gently used blankets for the Blanket Brigade, and canned food for the Canned Food Drive. Here, Freedom High senior Stephanie Skym, community service commissioner for the school’s Leadership class, stands by a receptacle for canned food donations. The campaigns will continue until Dec. 11, and those desiring to make a donation are asked to drop off toys, blankets and canned goods at the front office of Freedom High School at 1050 Neroly Road in Oakley.

of Brentwood’s American Legion Post 202, founded in 1919 following the end of World War I. Leighton said LeMoine’s uniform will be added to the historical museum’s military display. The historical society also recently received nine boxes of items belonging to Edna Hill, the renowned teacher whose legacy was immortalized when the Brentwood school that she taught at was named after her in 1953. She was still teaching eighth grade at the school at the time of its renaming. “We received boxes of handwritten notes by Edna Hill,” Leighton said. “She’d probably roll over in her grave if she knew her former students were reading her notes, but they’re exciting to have. She was going to write a book about East County, so she wrote notes on the back of envelopes and napkins – whatever she had handy when someone told her a story. There are notes from a 1950 interview with Judge Robert Wallace (Brentwood’s elected Justice of the Peace) talking about what life was like in 1908. You can’t put a price on that.” Leighton said all the notes and photos will be digitally scanned and filed in the archives. Hill has become a historical figure in her own right. The Knightsen native and Liberty High School graduate began teaching in Knightsen in 1912. She later served as Brentwood school district superintendent from 1930-1937 before returning to the classroom. Hill retired from full-time teaching in 1964 but continued to work at Edna Hill Middle School as a substitute teacher. The East Contra Costa Business and Professional Women’s Club named her Woman of the Year in 1959. She was also one of the founding members of the ECCHS, an owner of the Brentwood News, and a member of the Native Daughters of the Golden West. She died in 1975 at the age of 84. Another helpful addition to the ECCHS archives came from Brentwood resident Barbara Guise, who recently donated dozens of articles about Brentwood published in the late 20th century. “Barbara has always been very involved with what’s going on in Brentwood,” Leighton said. “She was mayor in the early ’80s and has been active in the community for many years, and over time she’s been collecting article clippings about things happening in town going back to the ’60s. She’s a lot like me, collecting all these things, saying that she’ll do something with them later and file them away, so when she found that box of old articles, she decided to give it to us.” Leightson said these original sources are valuable to the archives and would also be preserved digitally. The articles might also provide new dates that could be added to the 2011 edition of the ECCHS calendar, which Leighton is already compiling. The 2010 calendar is available at the Brentwood Press office, 248 Oak St., and the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce office, 8440 Brentwood Blvd., Suite C. The ECCHS Museum will reopen on March 28, 2010.

East County clinics offer free flu shots

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

HAPPY NEW YEARS – CHEERS TO NEW ALLIANCES Based on my recent activities it looks as though the economy is improving. Well, maybe not the economy, but certain business enterprises. As I have always maintained, this was not a recession, this is a new economy. The old ways of conducting business are now producing results in some cases but not in most. So, my recommendations throughout the year involved giving my readers new ways of doing business. And I decided that it was important to take my own advice, so I have joined forces with Amy Alvis, of Living Trusts by Amy. Amy has been an attorney for 12 years, and has been a local resident for 8 years. We will now be able to provide legal representation in broader areas (estate planning and business advice), and there will now be additional support to insure your matters are handled timely, efficiently and with the integrity you have come to expect from my office. Combining estate planning with business representation allows us to provide legal services for both individuals and businesses, and to provide for both simple and more complex representation in these areas. I will still be reviewing your contracts, leases, and assisting in the purchase

and sales of your businesses, but now this office can also review your personal issues and provide you the friendly down to earth touch that differentiates our office from typical legal offices. We’ll be at the same location for now, and you can still count on Kathy answering your calls in her helpful manner. Our new name will be Alvis, Frantz and Associates, a Professional Law Corporation. We’ll be having an open house on Tuesday, January 26, 2009 at 5:30 pm at our offices at 9030 Brentwood Blvd., Suite B, Brentwood, California. We’ll be serving fun foods and beverages.

OUTDOORS

Though our last three winters have brought subpar rainfall, East County skies have the potential to soak us with the enthusiasm of a victorious Super Bowl team dousing its coach with Gatorade.

Earth was a sphere of molten rock, a victim of countless high-speed collisions of asteroids, planetoids and comets. Its oceans were red, not blue. The collisions tapered off and Earth, like a pastry whisked out of the oven, cooled and its magma ocean formed a crust. Then it happened: the invisible gas we call water vapor escaped from the crust and condensed in Earth’s primitive atmosphere. The first clouds were born. Those primordial clouds lashed our planet with rains that cooled the surface further and flooded its hollows to form the first seas. Then, about three billion years ago, another miracle took place: the seas gave birth to single-celled organisms. Life on Earth was off and running. Speaking of miracles, a cloud is not what it seems. To our eyes a cloud appears airy but tangible, like cotton candy. In fact, a cloud

is nearly an optical illusion. When warm air rich in water vapor rises it expands, cools and condenses onto the tiny particles of dust that inhabit our atmosphere, forming miniscule droplets around the particles. It takes only a few billion of these droplets to accumulate before voilà! A visible cloud takes shape. Direct sunlight, containing all the colors of the spectrum (which added together equal white) reflects off those billions of floating droplets in perfect balance, showing no shift toward any color of the spectrum. That’s why clouds, in their unblemished state, are white. It’s December, time for the canvas of our lives to be embellished with light and music and cheer; time for the canvas of the sky to be brushed with mare’s tails and piled high with anvil heads, stained with crimson and magenta. Things are looking up. And so should we. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Don’t jump the gun on police oversight board Editor: After reading about the efforts to create a new Antioch police oversight board, I believe it’s unnecessary. With all due respect to my friend Angel Luevano, he’s jumping to conclusions, assuming the lawsuit against the APD and city by the Section 8 AfricanAmerican women is valid, which is his basis for creating a new police oversight board. We all should wait pending the outcome of that case. Councilmembers Moore and Rocha, who are supposed to represent all the residents of Antioch, need to be neutral and not take sides prior to the ruling by a judge and/or jury. In this country, you’re assumed innocent until proven guilty. They should do the same. But this is a civil case, not criminal, anyway. Another board is unnecessary. We already have a Police-Crime Prevention Commission that, if the council wanted, could be given additional oversight responsibilities in reviewing complaints against the police. However, for now, the council fills that role, as complaints against police employees are either legal and/or personnel matters and are handled in closed session. Any resident has the right to file a complaint against any city employee, any time. Moore’s request is an over-reach of his authority. Only the mayor, in an elected-mayor city, has the power to nominate people to committees and commissions, with approval of the council. As for wanting this proposed board to have input on hiring a police chief, in a general-law, council-manager city such as Antioch, it’s the city manager’s job to hire all the department heads. The council only hires the city manager and the city attorney. As for rehiring Chief

I owe my success to you Editor: What a privilege it is for me to have my education paid for by a scholarship as I play softball for one of the best universities in the West. U.S. News & World Report ranked Cal Poly as the #1 Public Master’s University in the Western United States for the 15th consecutive year, so as you can see, this is where I want and need to be. I hope that someday you will be watching me on TV, for my desire is to be a sideline news sportscaster. I owe so much to my very first fastpitch softball coach, Michele Moore, who sought me out and took me away from playing Little League baseball when I was 7 years old. Coach Moore said I had speed, so she switched me from a righty to batting left and I soon learned that fast-pitch softball was not a “piece of cake” sport. I then spent eight years developing my skills and made a full circle to end up coming back and playing for Head Coach Moore at Freedom High School my freshman year. I also have had the privilege to finish my high school career playing for Head Coach Jeff Jonas and for four years under Athletic Director Steve Amaro. I also played varsity volleyball and basketball for Freedom. There are many “coaches” I’d like to thank for believing in me and pushing me to be the very best I can be over the past 11 years: Coach Michele Moore and Jeff Jonas, Coach Mike Wiley, Coach Steve Williams, Coach Laura Norwood, Sarah and Tim, Coach Guido Bindi, Coach Paul Buccellato and Allan and Scott, Coach Clark Tourville and Rich, Coach Bill Sparrey, Phil and Kim, Coach Wayne Aweau and Harry, and Coach Pete Aguayo. Last but not least, my fielding and hitting coaches: Buddy Thomas, Dennis Gomes, Debbie Nelsona and Scott Sarginson. On the academic side, I want to say it was an honor for me to be a part of Freedom High School! I especially want to thank my teachers and my school counselor, Tracy Carroll, for all their support while I played sports these past four years. Ms. Carroll knew of the demands sports placed on my schedule, and helped by arranging my classes so that I could meet the honor standards

AMFF supports our troops, military families and veterans. We send care packages every month and have been doing so for the past five years. The donations from the VFW Women’s Auxiliary and Post will help us continue providing support to our troops. I encourage our communities to do their part in helping by supporting our events, collecting donations for our troops and collecting letters or cards of encouragement, and we will gladly send them to our deployed. Thank you to the Eastside Church of Antioch, which just delivered over 300 signed Christmas cards. We need these donations to continue all year, not just the holidays. Our Troops don’t take a break and I won’t, either. You are invited to join us this Saturday, Dec. 5 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for our Holiday for the TROOPS Craft Fair Fundraiser at Community Presbyterian Church 200 E.

Thanks for spooktacular fest Editor: The Marsh Creek Parents Club would like to thank everyone who made our annual Halloween Fest on Oct. 30 our very best ever!

Dozens of children had a spooky, fun evening playing games put together by the amazing Marchetti family.

The Parents Club is grateful to all the families and teachers who helped put together 13 beautiful gift baskets for the silent auction and who donated candy and treats for the terrifying treat walk. Many helping hands went into creating our Halloween fest and we appreciate them all! We would especially like to thank the Marchetti family, Boy Scout Troop 90, Bryan Ferreira, Sticky Chicken and Ribs, Cold Stone Creamery, Cheryl Varga, CentroMart, Food Maxx, Katie Neiman Photography, Lollipops, Supercuts, The Blind Stitch, Southwest Airlines, Disneyland Resorts, Best Buy, Blockbuster, Melo’s Pizza and Pasta, the high school student volunteers from the Liberty Union High School District, and all the teachers and staff who volunteered their time.

A cause for Thanksgiving Editor: On Thanksgiving Day, Golden Hills Community Church held its annual free Thanksgiving Dinner at Veterans Hall in Brentwood. This year we served nearly 1,200 meals between those served at the hall and delivered to homes, gave away nearly 200 bags of groceries, 2,000 pounds of potatoes, and also a great deal of clothing. We couldn’t have done it without a lot of help from the community. There were hundreds of people who helped in many different ways from inside and outside the church body. I couldn’t possibly thank them all by name, but there are some who deserve special recognition for their generous donation of their time, supplies, and/or money. In no particular order, they are the American Legion Post 202, Brentwood Ace Hardware and Jerry Thorpe, Ralph’s Catering and Ralph and Charlene Skelton, Joe Champlain, Dave and Linda Crippin, Sue Harris, Dale and Erin Dameral, Kim Jones, Al and Nellie Garcia, Drew Hanson, Gail Lescher, Nancy McDaniel, Betty Walker, Dainty Center, Celebration Christian School, Golden Hills Christian School, the Brentwood Press, the Contra Costa Times, Brentwood Men’s Club, Food Maxx, Got-A-Party, Trader Joe’s, Raley’s, and Bart Schneider and his group of Edna Hill students.

Parade of Lights a storybook spectacle Thousands of spectators and participants are expected to converge on Discovery Bay this weekend for the town’s biggest land-based celebration – the Parade of Lights – on Saturday beginning at 6 p.m. The town’s tree lighting, sponsored by the Discovery Bay Lions Club, and parade awards ceremony will immediately follow the parade at the Discovery Bay Shopping Center on Discovery Bay Boulevard. Hosted by the Discovery Bay Chamber of Commerce, the parade is expected to feature more than 40 floats designed and created by local businesses, schools and individual groups. The theme is Storybook and will be led by this year’s grand marshal, Sheriff Warren Rupf. “Anything that has to do with storybooks, anything you can imagine, you will see,” said Pa-

(whose last name was disclosed as Ellis after he asked that his suspension hearing be open to the public). The suit alleged that the three were racially profiled, physically attacked and unlawfully arrested by police officers who conspired with school officials to cover up the officers’ unlawful conduct by suspending and expelling the students. The incident started about a half hour after Deer Valley High School let out on March 7, 2007. Antioch Police Officer James Vincent confronted Michael, Nicholas and another African-American student identi-

They did amazing things and I’m so proud of them all.” Mass’ mother Diana Rizzuto is also proud – of her son. “I feel very, very proud, but I’ve always been proud of my boys,” said Rizzuto, who has two younger sons. “He was always a quiet, kind of shy boy and I was surprised when he decided to join the service when he got out of high school.

rade Captain Rick Pierce. “We expect to have a great turnout this year, despite the economy. So far, we’re right on pace with the number of entries from last year, so it’s going well. It’s a great family event.” This season’s parade will take a different route than last season’s and will necessitate several street closures. The parade will begin at the Discovery Bay Marina, continue right on Marina Road, left on Willow Lake Road and right on Riverlake Road, cross Discovery Bay Boulevard, turn left on Sandpoint Road, left on Discovery Bay Boulevard, and end at the Discovery Bay Shopping Center. Parking is limited and spectators are encouraged to arrive early. For more information, call Rick Pierce at 925-437-9538 or Amanda Dove at 925-408-8332.

fied in the suit as Victor F., accusing them of blocking traffic in the plaza. The officer prevented them from going in to Taco Bell and walked toward Michael holding a canister of pepper spray. Michael and Nicholas ran across the street to Gas City, chased by Vincent and Police Officer Leroy Bloxsom. The suit states that Bloxsom pepper sprayed Nicholas and Michael, and also slammed Michael to the ground. Police Officer M. Zepeda (the lawsuit did not provide his full first name), holding a canister of pepper spray, walked toward a group of students watching the incident. DeArmand ran and was chased and tackled by Zepeda, according to the suit. The next day, DeArmand, Michael and Nicholas were suspended, followed by expulsion for the rest of the school year and the first semester of the following school year.

The suit claimed that the district violated the students’ rights during the expulsion hearings by allowing the district’s chief investigator and witness during the hearings, Ron Leone, to also preside as the hearing officer and rule on the admissibility of evidence, including his own. In addition, the hearing violated the students’ rights by not allowing their counsel to cross-examine the police officers who testified against them, although the students’ witnesses were allowed to be cross-examined, according to the suit. The student expulsions were subsequently overturned by the County Office of Education and the Superior Court, ruling that the students did not violate the education code, according to the suit. After the expulsions were overturned, Antioch City Manager Jim Jakel defended the actions of the police officers, saying,

“Our review of the incident indicates that the officers involved conducted themselves entirely appropriately. Crime committed by this community’s youth is a serious issue.” Asked whether there was a rush to judgment against the students and whether there are any lessons to be learned in retrospect, Ruehlig said, “Only a turnip wouldn’t draw lessons from such a painful experience. We shall dissect how the case evolved. At this point I can only say that the District acted in good faith at every step, and make clear that the settlement does not amount to admission of guilt. It is clear that there are different legal opinions on a host of matters. I have my opinions and interpretations but the legal process has its own universe. The current legal system oftentimes leaves me slightly baffled and sighing.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

made a career out of the service. I’m just glad I didn’t know half the things he was doing.” Mass decided on the Marines in 1989 after some of his friends enlisted. “I wasn’t ever very interested (in the service),” he said. “but some of my friends signed up, and when they came back and told me about it, it seemed like a good idea. I wasn’t doing a lot after graduation and I needed to do something to keep me out of trouble. It turned out to be a good fit for me.” Wife Leanne agrees. “I’m so excited for Tony,” she said. “It’s been a long hard road for him and it’s nice to see someone rewarded when they have worked so hard.”

In fact, Mass’ hard work has resulted in more than a Bronze Star. A few weeks ago, he also received a promotion to sergeant major. “I told him he’s having a really good month,” said Leanne, laughing. “I thought they were kidding me at first,” said Mass of his promotion. “But when my colonel came down to see me with the paperwork, then I knew it was for real. I’m still absorbing it all.” And while he’s letting the moments sink in, the 20-year career Marine with two tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan said he supports President Obama’s move to send an additional 30,000 troops to Afghanistan: “I

definitely think he’s going in the right direction with this – I can say that for a fact. If we’re going to commit to it (the war), then we need to do it completely, get it over with and move on.” But for now, Mass will remain on the sidelines, spending the holidays at home with his family. “I’ve accrued a lot of what they call ‘dwell time,’ which means I’ll be staying back (home) for a while since I had two backto-back combat tours,” he said. “And that’s OK; I’ll be spending some time with my family and we’ll be at home for Christmas. It’s all good.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Falcons outgunned by Colts in opener by Dave Roberts Staff Writer Freedom’s girls basketball team is looking to rebound this year from a disappointing 11-14 (3-11 in league) record last season. But the Falcons must play better than they did in their season opener against James Logan last week if they want to make that a reality. Freedom lost 37-54 on its home court after being outrun and outgunned by the Colts. The Falcons fell behind 0-5, got within two points at 4-6 but then trailed by double digits for much of the rest of the game due to too many turnovers, bad passes and bad shots. They were down 12 at the end of the first quarter, behind by 15 at the half, down 19 at the end of the third quarter and lost by 17 at the final buzzer. The one bright spot for the Falcons was the play of Kerena Trice, who scored 17 points, displayed good ball-handling and wasn’t afraid to take it to the hole when she got the chance. The other potential bright spot is that Freedom has a new coach this year, Natalie Farmer, who is new to the school and has a background in softball, which she has played and coached at the college level. “We are working on the fundamentals of the game, trying to give them the tools to make them individually better and then make our team better,” said Farmer. “We

have got to rebound more. We have to have less turnovers and really try to instill a positive attitude going into the game. You’ve really got to be positive and stay that way all the way through. “I hear they have had some bad losses in the past and not so much a winning record. It’s a new year. I’m a new person. I don’t know anything about that. It starts with mentally wanting it and being positive and thinking that you can do it.” Farmer was impressed with the play of Trice and hopes her example will motivate other players. “She definitely was a player leader out there,” she said. “I’m looking for some more vocal leaders as well. She wasn’t afraid and she took it to the hoop and she gave us the playing boost that we needed to see.” Another guard that Farmer is looking to step up is senior Kimberly Westlund, who has “a lot of speed and a lot of good ball handling,” said Farmer. “Both those two guards are going to do some good things.” Two other players to watch for are senior Keyara Goodlow-Young and sophomore Nicole Mass. “I’m excited to see what (all of the players) bring to the table every single day,” said Farmer. “It’s new for me. And I just try my best and am trying to have some positive attitudes to win some games out here.” Freedom played Dougherty Valley

The California Rays 13U baseball players and coaches, front row from left, are Joey O’Neal, Cole Santos, Junior Romero and RJ Prince; middle row: Cameron Pham, Zack Negrete, Ryan Vasquez and Matt Stahli; back row: Coach Darrell O’Neal, Talon Majewski, Jacob Pruitt, Manager Tim Santos and Dustin Dibble.

Glory days for Rays The California Rays 13U baseball club recently won its third championship in six fall tournaments, taking the title at Rainbow Fields. In the course of the fivegame effort, Rays’ batters scored 31 runs while Rays’ pitchers and fielders gave up only five. The Rays won the tournament’s first game against the Modesto Stars by a score of 10-0. They then played the Nor Cal Grizzlies in back-to-back matchups, losing 2-1 and winning 3-1. In the semi-

final game, the Rays posted another 10-0 blowout, this time against the Next Level Giants. The Rays knew they had their work cut out for them early on in the championship game against Eastlake when Titan batters unleashed the long ball – only to walk away empty when Rays outfielders proved they had wheels and gloves to track down those missiles at the fence. Final score: Rays 7, Titans 2. – Contributed by Dawn Santos

Deer Valley from page 1B ball to Pittsburg territory. However, after moving the ball to the 15-yard line, the drive stalled, ending with an interception on fourth and 26 that actually could have been a positive for the Wolverines, as the Pittsburg defender made the pick on the 1-yard line and was tackled immediately. Knocking the ball down would have given Pittsburg the ball at the 40. But Pittsburg running back Tracy Clark broke off a 40-yard run that got the Pirates good field position. While they were ultimately forced to punt, they put the Wolverines in a position where all that they could do was run out the remainder of the first half. After the “pick six” by Jiles, the Pirates put the game away with two more fourthquarter touchdowns, both by Mozee, from one and eight yards out. The only question remaining was whether they would preserve the shutout, which they did. Looking back at a great season, Woods said, “No one is going to sneeze at 11-1. The sad thing is that when you are undefeated like that, you are always happy, and we just didn’t play our best game. We played probably one of our not-so-good games. We played a very good football team tonight, and that’s just kind of what happened. We’re in the heat of the section playoffs with an opportunity to go to the semifinals and we just didn’t play that well.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Heritage from page 1B open and put it right past the Warrior goalkeeper. Just 20 minutes later Heritage scored again when Janelle Triplett kicked in a rebound shot from Katie Wiley. That 2-0 score held until Ygnacio Valley finally got on the board on a kick by Maria Escobedo. The Patriots shut down the Warriors from there for the win. “The girls really fought hard throughout the entire game,” said Heritage Coach Randy James. “We were able to get a couple of goals in the first half, and it helped us to succeed.” James took over as varsity girls coach this year after coaching the JV boys team last year. He’s hoping to improve on last year’s girls varsity record of 4-11-4 overall and 2-7-3 in league play. “I don’t know so much about them last year because I was on the boys side,” he said. “I just know that the girls right now are getting better each time we come out. Our challenge right now is to continue to develop and get better.” James added that he’s impressed by “their team spirit. They fight and battle all across the field. That’s something they are continuing to develop and get better at as well.” He’s looking for good things this year from junior midfielder Ari Gordon and the return of junior midfielder/forward Mikayla Griggs after she finishes club play. Heritage hosted Amador Valley Tuesday and travels to American High Saturday before beginning league play at Pittsburg Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 6 p.m. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Raiders honor local martial master Oakland Raiders fans numbering more than 34,000 were recently treated to a halftime celebration honoring the legendary Bruce Lee. In recognition of Lee’s Asian heritage, the Raiders invited nine of the Bay Area’s most prominent martial arts schools to conduct a simultaneous multi-style martial arts halftime demonstration. An action-packed video and slideshow presented on the Jumbotron augmented the demonstration. Among the chosen schools’ masters and grandmasters honored with the Bay Area Fight Arts Hall of Fame & Recognition Award was Sensei Roger B. Hamilton of Hamilton Martial Arts Academy (HMA), located in Brentwood. Presenting the award was none other than Linda Lee, wife of Bruce Lee and active martial arts dignitary. “This is a lot of fun,” said Hamilton as he left the field to prepare his students for their demonstration. “After 40 years of wrestling, boxing and karate training, I still get excited about this stuff. Mine is a blessed life.” Among Hamilton’s many achievements are membership in the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame, the Action Martial Arts Magazine Hall of Fame and the American Martial Arts Alliance Hall of Fame. His academy teaches traditional Shotokan karate, power kickboxing, wrestling and box-

ing. HMA is home to some of the most disciplined children, teenagers and adult students from the East Contra Costa County community. The demonstration team was comprised of Axel Brugere, Sophie Brugere, Kelly Brugere, Estelle Brugere, Noemi Botor, Vincent Luckett, Trina Robinson, Eli Ragasa, Nyla Lampkin, Paolo Mirano, Ethan Tadlock, Necole Cayanan, Nealsen Cayanan, Aaron Anderson, Ali Hamilton and team captain Omar Hamilton. Hamilton may be reached by phone at 925-884-3800 or by e-mail at info@hamiltonkarate.com. The academy’s Web site is www.hamiltonkarate.com.

During the giving season, the one thing you should avoid giving to visiting friends and family is the flu. Gatherings have been shown to increase the risks of spreading germs and illness; however, there are some easy tips holiday entertainers can follow to spread cheer – and not germs – at their parties. • In addition to providing alcohol-based hand sanitizer in the bathroom, place a bottle on commonly used surfaces. • Rather than ask guests to share one cloth towel, set out disposable guest towels. “Individual disposable guest towels, like those made by Chinet, combine the elegance and absorption of cloth while minimizing the spread of germs,” said Julie Stoetzer, marketing manager for Huhtamaki, the makers of Chinet. “And since you can find these guest towels at your local grocery store, it will mean one less trip during the hectic holiday shopping season.” • Present snacks in single-serving containers. Disposable cut crystal tumblers are an affordable and attractive option to community dishes and will eliminate the temptation guests might have to place their hands into a bowl. • Use wine charms or decorative swizzle sticks to ensure that partygoers drink only from their own cup. Another option is to decorate and personalize disposable tumblers with permanent markers. By taking these precautions, you can help your friends and family have a happy – and healthy – New Year.

Merry Christmas crafts Handmade holiday items bring a unique and personal touch to the season, making the giver and receiver feel special. This year, millions of families will be spending more time together creating low or no-cost crafts such as gifts, cards and decorations. In fact, the Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) estimates that almost 43 million U.S. households will create handcrafted holiday gifts and decorations this year. “Crafting provides an opportunity to spend time with friends and family while creating unique, one-of-a-kind gifts that don’t need to cost a lot of money,” said CHA President and CEO Steve Berger. To inspire you, here’s an idea to get you crafting this holiday season:

Swirl Place Setting Courtesy of ilovetocreate.com Materials: Aleene’s Fabric Fusion; Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue; Tulip 3D Fashion Paint: 65088 Gold Glitter and 65408 Gold Metallics; red placemats and napkins; ¼ yard gold fabric; cardstock paper; four Gold buttons; bulky yarn – red; eyelash yarn – red; 1-inch low-tack masking tape; scissors; scratch paper; paper towels; pencil; ruler and placemats. Placemats: Use tape to mask off around edge of placemats and across one corner of napkin. Start the flow of the Gold Metallic paint on a paper tow-

el using an even pressure on the bottle. Squeeze thin lines of gold in assorted sizes of swirls on place mat. Immediately and carefully place scratch paper over paint and lightly rub over paper. Remove paper and tape. Let dry. Continue with remainder of placemats and napkins. Add a gold metallic line around edge of pattern and across the diagonal on the napkin. Let dry. Squeeze a thin line of gold glitter to all swirls and dry. Squeeze a thin line of Fabric Fusion next to edge on the top of placemat. Press bulky yarn into glue. When dry, flip placemats over, apply a bead of glue to edge and press in eyelash yarn, twisting yarn so fibers show around edge. Let dry. Napkin Rings: Measure and cut a strip of cardstock 2x7 inches. Apply Fast Grab to one end of strip overlap and hold with tape until dry. Continue with desired amount of napkin rings. Cut strips of gold fabric 4x7½ inches. Apply a thin even coating Fast Grab to the ring; press on fabric and smooth with fingers. Apply glue to the fabric edges and fold to the inside and press to secure. Let dry. Cut a 12-inch piece of both yarns and wrap together. Tie around napkin ring and knot on top. Add a dot of glue to the back of the knot to hold in place. Trim ends. Cut the shank from the back of button; add glue and press in place over the knot.

Holidays made easy Gathering with family and friends to celebrate the holiday season is a tradition that everyone enjoys. Finding the time to do the party up right, however, can be a challenge. That fun-filled evening of holiday merriment you planned for your guests suddenly becomes an ordeal. Many companies offer complete lines of elegant party foods ranging from heat-and-serve appetizers to richly decadent desserts, all designed for ultra-easy preparation. These options are great stress-reducers – and your guests never need to know you didn’t spend

hours in the kitchen. For those party hosts who lack the time but prefer a more hands-on approach here are few ideas.

Preheat oven to 400°F. Thaw dip overnight in refrigerator or in the microwave on high for five to six minutes. Spray baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Using 4inch diameter biscuit cutter, cut three smaller tortillas out of each tortilla. This can be done quickly by stacking the tortillas. Lay out 15 of the 4-inch tortillas on baking sheet. Mix grated cheddar and jack cheese together. Place 1 tablespoon of mixed cheeses on each tortilla. Place 1 tablespoon of dip on top of cheeses. Top with another 4-inch tortilla, pressing down lightly to flatten. Place baking sheet on lower rack of the oven for 4 minutes. Carefully flip over each quesadilla with spatula, returning to oven for two to three minutes. Remove from oven. Cool for two to three minutes before transferring to serving platter. – Courtesy of Family Features

Wilhite to host signing uthor Phillip Wilhite will be at Barnes & Noble Booksellers, 5709 Lone Tree Way in Antioch, on Thursday, Dec. 10 at 5:30 p.m. to sign copies of “Surviving Chadwick.” The book signing is also being held in support of the Antioch High School Band Backers. The story traces the struggle of Isaiah, a 15-year-old from innercity Oakland, to find his way in a world far different from his own. In 1973 Isaiah was awarded a scholarship to attend one of California’s elite boarding schools – and found that as an African-American, he didn’t have much in common with most of the other students and teachers at Chadwick. Wilhite lives in Oakland and has written prep sports articles for the Oakland Tribune. He also freelances stories for the Philadelphia Inquirer, and writes book reviews for the Philadelphia Tribune.

Seen in Greece

Seen in Egypt

s Brentwood structures go, the Press building (A.D. 1913) is venerable. But there’s no way around it: the Parthenon edges us out – by 2,345 years. Marie Whelan recently took her copy of the Discovery Bay Press to the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. The iconic temple that towers above the birthplace of democracy is impressive, sure – but at least Marie’s Hometown Weekly Newspaper building isn’t draped with scaffolding and crawling with tourists. Thanks, Marie, for the ancient backdrop.

lan, Erick, Ryan, Scotty and Stephanie Iannaccone were able to reach out and touch – and even climb – ancient history when they took the Brentwood Press to Cairo, Egypt on their recent trip to the land of the pharaohs. Thanks, kids, for exposing your Hometown Weekly Newspaper to some authentic Pyramid Power.
