This Week Ticket to controversy Photo by Steve Nosanchuck

t seems like only yesterday that we published our first Christmas edition emblazoned with our picture and our wishes for a merry Christmas and joyful holiday season. The fact is: this is the 11th time we’ve done it, and while some of the faces have changed, the spirit behind what we do and our appreciation for our readers has not. We’re proud to have been a part of so many great things, and that could never have happened had you not welcomed us into your heart and home every week. It’s a special privilege, one we take very seriously, even when we have some fun doing it. Here’s wishing everyone all the best for the holidays and right on into 2011.

The happiest place in Antioch by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer All that’s missing from the Antioch house of Gary and Kristen Vistalli is a monorail and a ticket booth. The Vistallis, including 15-year-old son Tyler, have turned their home into a Disney haven, featuring limited-edition memorabilia, intricate murals and a bevy of other decorations – and that’s just the inside the house. This time of year, the Vistallis turn their attention to the outside in a grand show of Christmas spirit. Their front yard features wooden Mickeys and Minnies adorned with Santa caps, as well as Snow White, the seven dwarfs and Tinkerbell. Surrounding the characters is a beautiful display of lights, one that makes the whole neighborhood on Colonial Court shine. The Vistallis have lived there for 20 years and they say they’ll be there forever. Both Kristen and Gary said it’s nice

to come home to such a happy place. To the surprise of many, it was Gary who was bitten by the Disney bug first. He said he went to Disneyland for the first time when he was 11 and again after graduating high school, and has been in love with the magic of Disney ever since. “People say it all the time. They go in and say, ‘Oh my gosh, I can’t believe that your husband lets you do this,’” Kristen said. “I say, ‘Oh, I let him do this to our house.’ It’s something that we love doing. We love sharing it with people.” Gary also inherited an appreciation for woodworking and lawn care – clearly evident in the front yard – from his late grandfather, Fred Zeiser. As the relationship went on, Kristen’s affection for all things Disney grew, too. Her cell phone’s voicemail includes the message, “Faith, love and pixie dust,” followed by a Tinkerbell-like chime. see Happiest page 18A

Knightsen prepares to Sufficient efficiency merge community boards by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Plans to fold Knightsen’s town advisory council (TAC) and community services district (CSD) into one board of directors will get a six-month trial run beginning Jan. 1. If successful, the arrangement will allow the five-member board to perform both the advisory and governmental duties of the small community. “It’s like one-stop government shopping,” said District V Supervisor Mary Piepho. “It will get the advisory council functioning again and back engaged with the county, and the CSD (board) is interested in trying it. I think it just makes good sense.” The idea for the combination boards was broached eight to 10 months ago by the supervisor’s office after repeated attempts to fill the five-member TAC board came up empty, effectively stymieing the advisory council’s ability to move town projects ahead. “We did significant community outreach over the months and didn’t get any response, so in July we struck up a conversation with the CSD to see if they would be interested in taking over the advisory council functions,” said Piepho. “In September they said they would be interested in folding it in.” Linda Weekes, former TAC member and current CSD board president, agreed that blending the two boards together is the smart thing to do. “I think it’s the best idea in the world,” said Weekes. “It will bring a great deal of connection and continuity to

the community and will allow the TAC to get some projects done that have been grazed over in the past months. To me, it’s just the obvious thing to do.” Although the TAC and CSD will comprise the same directors, they’ll hold separate meetings each month in order to keep the two entities’ functions separate. But at least one Knightsen resident has reservations about combining the two boards. “The only real issues I have is that no permanent money is provided by the county for KTAC operations,” said community activist John Gonzales. “However, I agree that the same board members (for two boards) could be a good move – but only after the supervisor has cleared up the previous situations and comes to some sort of standardization and funding.” The Knightsen TAC was founded in the mid1990s to serve as an advisory body to the county on land use and planning issues. The town’s CSD, formed several years later, deals with water issues and flood problems. Funding sources for the TAC and CSD are separate. TAC dollars come from fundraising and from the county’s Keller Canyon Mitigation Fund. CSD operations are paid for by a special parcel tax. But because the boards of both entities are volunteer-based – not always the case with CSDs and TACs – the issue of funding, said Weekes, is moot: “We are all volunteers, so there are no funding or stipend details to deal with. It’s a non-issue.” The first meetings of the newly combined boards will be held in early January. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Community joins Sydney’s Journey by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Sydney Stone seems like your average 12-year-old. She loves to text her friends, crochet, watch superhero movies and write stories. But unlike most kids her age, Sydney is battling a complicated disease that leaves her fatigued an unable to enjoy the simple pleasures of running through the park or dancing. She suffers from what doctors believe is mitochondrial disease, but the blood test needed to confirm the diagnosis costs $2,000, and a muscle biopsy needed to determine the variation of the disease costs $18,000. The Stone family has petitioned their insurance company to cover the costs, but they’ve been denied three times. “It feels like we’re hunting this ghost,� said Sydney’s mother Debi. “We’re hunting for the root of her illness, but it keeps evading us. The doctors are almost certain that she has mitochondrial disease, but the tests will confirm it and then we can proceed with a more specific treatment.� Sydney suffers from tracheomalacia (weakness of the windpipe), vertigo, cyclical vomiting syndrome and tachycardia (abnormally quick heart rate). All these symptoms are signs of mitochondrial disease, an incurable condition that affects the mitochondria in cells that help power the body. It’s not one disease, but a group of metabolic diseases that affect multiple organ systems.

Sydney also suffers from migraines, asthma, gastrointestinal problems and muscle pain and weakness. Debi said on a good day, Sydney’s pain level is between four and six, but most of the time she deals with pain in the seven to nine range. “When she was little, I knew she was sick, but since I was a new mom, the doctors told me I was being overprotective, so I believed them,� Debi said. “Sydney collapsed when she was 4. The doctors said she had asthma, but I knew deep down there was more to it.� It wasn’t until 2004, during yet another hospital visit, when Debi’s suspicions were confirmed. A tumor that Sydney had probably developed since birth was removed from her chest, but not before it had deformed her windpipe. Since the baseball-sized tumor’s removal, Sydney has been under the care of seven specialists who are doing their best to manage her disease and prevent it from progressing and further damaging her cells. “Sydney is a quiet and peaceful girl,� Debi said of her daughter. “She has this grace and loving spirit. She works her way into your heart without you even realizing it. She’s a joy to be around, but she’s 12. She’s just a little girl and she’s been through too much.� In the past six years, Sydney has undergone two surgeries, 27 sedations, countless MRIs, CT scans, lung tests, swallow studies, angiograms and hospital visits. Debi quit see Journey page 17A

Proclamations of appreciation for his service also came from County Supervisor Federal Glover and State Assembly member Joan Buchanan. As a parting gift, incoming Mayor Jim Frazier presented Connelley with a gift certificate for Vic Stewart’s. “I want to thank you for your service. It’s been a pleasure working with you,” Frazier said. “I’m going to miss you, but I want you to know that you’re not forgotten. … We will support you in all of your endeavors.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Although Connelley will no longer represent Oakley in a formal capacity, he’ll continue to be active in the community as a member of the Oakley-Delta Lions Club and the Oakley Chamber of Commerce. During his council career, Connelley served as vice mayor in 2007 and mayor in 2008. He helped spearhead the Economic Development Plan and initiated the Shoreline Vision Plan. In 2009, Connelley was one of the organizers of the Million Boat Float, a protest of legislation he believed was injurious to the Delta.

“According to the agenda, I have an hour to speak,” Bruce Connelley joked as he prepared to deliver his parting comments before stepping down from his seat on the Oakley City Council. After five years of public service, Connelley needed only a few minutes to summarize his tenure on the council in a brief and heartfelt speech, thanking the city colleagues he’s collaborated with over the years. “It’s been a great five years serving this community. It’s truly been an honor and privilege to be a part of Team Oakley,” Connelley said to a crowd of nearly 100 guests during the Dec. 14 council meeting. “… I want to thank the original council for appointing me, and the staff for tolerating me. Most of all I want to thank the staff for all their hard work because they are truly the reason why things get done. The council makes the major decisions, but it is Team Oakley that makes things a reality. I tip my hat to you.” The hat he tipped was none other than a festive Santa’s cap, a colorful gesture that personified Connelley’s presence on the council. During his five years, he was known for speaking his mind and offering views that weren’t always accepted by the majority. A passionate advocate for the Delta and the Oakley-Antioch shoreline, he often went to Sacramento to make sure Oakley issues had a voice at the capitol.

Community comes through again by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

In a year when need is greater than in years gone by, the people of East County have risen to the occasion once again. “It’s unbelievable how much people around here have given,” said Marla Krieg of Byron as she looked over the organized chaos that swept down on Brentwood Elementary last weekend. “All this food, all those toys. And they don’t just donate, they come down here and help get it to the people who need it.” The event last Friday and Saturday was the annual Brentwood Regional Community Chest Christmas Basket Program, now well into its fourth decade. This year, 550 local families received a large box of food, a frozen turkey, fresh vegetables and bread, and toys for each child in the family. The BRCC even had enough to lend a hand to a half-dozen other charitable efforts in need of toys, food or both. Altogether, the BRCC this year distributed more than 40 tons of food and 3,000 toys. “It really brings the Christmas spirit home and helps me concentrate on what the season’s all about: giving,” said volunteer Shanon Morton, one of hundreds of helpers who turned out to sort, pack and distribute the baskets. “It’s a wonderful day for me,” said Lill Pierce, a member of the BRCC board and daughter of the late Rose Pierce, who founded

food and hundreds of toys, and the district provided facilities and volunteers; the Marines’ Toys For Tots program helped provide toys; and the City of Brentwood chipped in with warehousing, garbage bins and police services.

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

application. On a short sale, the lender will require release of financial information including prior tax returns which may expose the borrower additional liability instead of reducing liability. Deciding to do a short sale is big decision and may have significant legal and tax consequences. Therefore, prior to starting a short sale (1) determine the affect of the short sale on your credit, (2) is there any personal liability on a lien after the short sale and (3) is there any tax liability due to the short sale. In conclusion, a short sale versus a foreclosure may be the right decision for you. However, a short sale can have serious consequences which should be analyzed by a real estate or bankruptcy attorney. I do short sale consultation for a flat fee of $300. If you end up needing to file bankruptcy, the $300 fee is applied to the bankruptcy fee. This is a complicated area of the law, but a bankruptcy or real estate attorney should be able to make to an analysis of your particular situation fairly quickly. WE ARE A DEBT RELIEF AGENCY.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Happy Holidays ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house Not a broker was churning, they were at home with a spouse; The rates had been researched and locked in with care, In hopes that happy clients soon would be there. Investors were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of lower rates danced in their heads. Trevor Frey and team had done their weeklong preach, But they hadn’t yet run out of things to teach. When on CNBC there arose such a clatter, Investors sprang from their chairs to see what was the matter. Up to the TV they flew like a flash, To hear the latest rumors and political trash. The analyst picks - a normal part of the show; But smart investors knew it was all so much blow. When, what to their wondering eyes should appear, But Warren Buffett, with something for investors to hear. His eyes, how they twinkled with savvy and wit,

Kids seem to get it this Christmas There’s always one. One particularly memorable kid out of the hundreds I talk to when it’s my ON privilege to play EADLINE Santa at various functions each December. One year it was the girl who asked softly for a warm coat for her sister. Once it was a boy who just wanted RICK a hug from Santa. LEMYRE And then there was the little guy who called me a “poser,” and said he’d wait for a chance to talk to the real Santa.

D

This year, as always, it was something unique. A girl about 7 visited with her sister of about 4, and said they’d both like the same Barbie doll for Christmas. If they were the same, she explained, there wouldn’t be any fighting, “and we can play more.” But it was something else she said that really stood out. As the two collected their candy canes and headed back to their mother, the older girl turned back and whispered to me, pointing to her sister, “She doesn’t know you’re just a helper for the real Santa. Don’t worry, though. I won’t tell her.” The love she showed for her younger sibling was remarkable, and it shot me full of the warmth that is the payoff for

Especial thanks to the mayor as well, because his comment in hopes that the basket would help a little – well let me tell you, Mr. Mayor, it was like a message from heaven, telling me not to lose hope, and that there are still people with enormous hearts out there. God bless you. Lupita Perez Brentwood

Spiritual solution sought Editor: Regarding the article “Seeking to right a historical wrong” by Justin Lafferty on Dec. 3, I agree. Let’s make the land’s name in Antioch right. There is a greater wrong that needs

them. Their excitement for the season is undiminished, and the core values they’ve been taught by their parents are more exposed. And from what I’ve seen, we’re doing pretty well. Difficult times are the furnace in which those values are forged, which might explain why, in the midst of financial strife and war, I feel so optimistic. Keep it up, everyone. What we’re going through will make us far better off in the long run – I could see that in our kids. Have a merry Christmas, whether you celebrate it or not, and remember that there’s more time for fun with just one kind of doll. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

This serious issue has to do with the systematic extermination of 300,000 Native-Americans between 1850 and 1860 just after the Gold Rush in California. This also led to further unjust extermination to most all Native-American people, as it set a mindset on how to deal with the Native-American people in America from 1860 all the way to Wounded Knee. This wrong needs to be made right as well and our mountain’s name given back to our Native-American human beings. When the mountain’s name is changed, then spiritual healing can begin. Not much is said about this issue

and the local people need to know the truth about this issue. It is a spiritual issue and requires a spiritual answer. This period of time from 1850-60 is called “The day the Great Spirit died.” It is time for a resurrection of the dead and restoration of a people and the People’s mountain name changed.

One 6-year-old even said he’d like an AK47 assault rifle. But mostly it was dolls, or videos, or action figures, or clothes (including a request for one shoelace). It stands to reason. No doubt moms and dads everywhere are talking about money in front of the kids these days, and how it’s in short supply. It figures that the kids understand big things aren’t in the offing, at least this time around. But it doesn’t seem to matter to

Sydney’s father was laid off, so the family, which includes Sammy, 10, and Sierra, 7, struggles to get by on unemployment compensation. After coping with Sydney’s disease privately for many years, the Stone family has launched Sydney’s Journey, a movement to garner awareness for mitochondrial disease, and members of the community are planning a spaghetti feed fundraiser to help the family raise the money needed to pay for the tests Sydney needs to secure a diagnosis. “We’re hosting this event for two reasons,” Debi explained. “First, it is a fundraiser, but we want this event to raise awareness for mitochondrial disease. It’s known as an orphan disease because there aren’t any big foundations or research centers looking for new treatments or a cure. But you don’t have to have a designer-brand disease to need help. All sick children deserve a support group that is working to get them well. Even childhood arthritis has more support than mitochon-

drial disease. We need federal funding to find a cure. We need awareness.” Since little is known about the disease, it’s hard to determine its cause or the prognosis for patients affected by it. According to the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation, the only organization of its kind promoting awareness for the rare disorder, some children and adults suffering from the disease are able to live fairly normal lives, but children severely affected might not survive their teen years, a reality the Stone family is well aware of. “She is terminal,” Debi said. “She knows that, but we try not to talk about it. We just want to give her the best quality of life for each day that we have her.” The Sydney’s Journey Spaghetti Feed Fundraiser will be held Friday, Jan. 14, 2011 at 5:30 p.m. in Brentwood Neighborhood Church, 50 Birch St. Tickets are $10. The event includes a raffle, an auction, music, an open mic and a loose-change drive. For more information, call Debi at 541-228-7075 or e-mail sydneysjourney@ gmail.com.

Friends bring Christmas to Oakley families by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Smiles and hugs and tears and expressions of speechless gratitude intermingled with wishes of season’s greetings, happy holidays and feliz navidad. The sky was grey and rain spattered the faces of dozens of volunteers, but nothing could dampen the spirit felt at the Friends of Oakley Christmas Basket distribution event last weekend. In its third year, the nonprofit Friends of Oakley provided boxes of food and wrapped toys to 252 Oakley families, plus care packages for 54 senior citizens. It took months of planning, thousands of donations and hours of final preparations, but the event went without a hitch. “It was wonderful,” said organizer Pat Anderson. “It feels so good to give back to the community and watch all the volunteers pitch in and see the gratitude on the faces of the families we helped this year – that’s Christmas to me. “Times are hard for a lot of people, and a lot of charities were under-supported this year, but Oakley was supportive of this program. With all the donations we received, every family got two large boxes of food plus a turkey. “I am so proud of this community. We have an amazing community filled with people who want to help each other, and because of their kindness, 252 more families will be able to enjoy Christmas this year.” Families who registered for aid in advance arrived at O’Hara Park Middle School to find a crew of 50 volunteers ready to deliver food and toys straight to their cars. Many volunteers wore Santa

For 9-yearold volunteer Cristina Rossi, participating in the event was a “big life experience.” “My mom told me about the program and how it helps the needy people in Oakley, so we’re here to help make Oakley a better place,” said Rossi, a fourth-grader at Laurel Elementary. “I’ve been helping take boxes to the cars, and it makes me re-

ally happy to see the smiles on the people’s faces when we bring them the food and the toys and wish them merry Christmas. It feels good to know that we’re making sure people in Oakley have a good Christmas.” While Rossi was getting hands-on experience in helping out in the community, Friends of Oakley member and event volunteer Norma Marin took a moment to step back and watch the event unfold.

As a member of Oakley’s Happy Hookers Crochet Group, she helped make the blankets nestled into seniors’ care packages, accompanied by puzzle books, a mug with tea packets, and a small wrapped gift. She also helped wrap gifts for the children and sort food the day before the distribution event. Once the big moment had arrived, Marin was so moved by the community support that tears formed in her eyes as she watched volunteers take food and toys to the cars. “This event starts off like a spark,” Marin said. “There’s this idea for the community to come together to support those in need, and we each keep the spark lit all year long inside us and then today, it’s like the Fourth of July. All those sparks have come together to make something truly special happen. “Oakley is like one big family. I’m so proud of all of the volunteers who have come out to help. I get emotional just thinking about it. I’ve cried several times this week because I am so overwhelmed by all of this love and support. This is a magical day.” Friends of Oakley President Kevin Romick was also pleased with the turnout and expressed his gratitude for the community support. “The support from the community during this process has been incredible,” he said. “The success for this event was due to the volunteers who participated during the entire process. The Friends of Oakley would like to acknowledge and extend our sincere thanks to all of these individuals for their generous participation in this annual endeavor. Thank you all and may your holidays be joyous and fulfilling.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

To the right of that is a mural of Peter Pan, featuring more fiber optics. Tyler, who plays varsity baseball for Deer Valley High, says he’s not embarrassed to bring friends over.

Gordon leads Heritage soccer attack by Michael Dixon Correspondent

Photo by Jolly Hanson

Heritage junior Ari Gordon, the reigning BVAL co-offensive player of the year, leads a Patriots team looking to make a deep run in the playoffs.

Heritage High’s girls varsity soccer team started the season with a respectable 1-1-2 record, but head coach Randy James was frustrated by the team’s inability to score goals. Fortunately, the Patriots have Ari Gordon, who scored two goals in a recent 6-0 home drubbing of Richmond. As a junior center-midfielder and forward last season, Gordon scored 16 goals and added six assists, sharing the offensive Bay Valley Athletic League MVP award with Liberty’s Mikayla Farber, who is also a returning player. “She’s really good at dribbling oneon-one and attacking,” said junior midfielder and teammate Kayla Hinojosa. “She plays off the ball well. When she does that, she makes really good runs.” This year, Heritage hopes Gordon can at least duplicate the success of her junior season and help the team find its way back to the North Coast Section playoffs. A season ago, the Patriots were 12-7-5 overall, 8-3-4 in league and qualified for the North Coast Section playoffs, where they lost 4-0 to San Ramon Valley in the first round. Gordon, who played AAU basketball until recently, as well as softball, is now devoting her full attention to soccer. She is being recruited by both Division I and

Division II schools and is in the process of taking recruiting trips. Gordon has been playing soccer since age 4, and despite her skills in other sports, soccer has always been her passion. “I just have a lot of love for it,” said Gordon. “My heart’s always been in it, and I enjoy it a lot.” James added that the skill most responsible for Gordon’s success is her ability to hold the ball and maintain possession. Junior center-midfielder Caitlin Cardoza struggled to find a weakness in Gordon’s game but did say that her free kicks can be improved on, since they’re not always on frame. Cardoza also said Gordon “is really aggressive and really motivated,” so improving on the free kicks is a doable task. By her own admission, Gordon is not a fast runner, so most of her offensive prowess comes from a hard shot and her ability to distribute the ball to teammates. After the winter break, Heritage hosts El Cerrito on Jan. 7 before opening its league schedule at Freedom on Jan. 11. James finds the upcoming league season intriguing. “The league, overall, is better than it has been,” said James. “There are five teams that have a chance at winning, so it should be really competitive.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Oakley resident Clayton Williams, 8, has been burning rubber all across the state, earning numerous trophies for go-kart racing. Photo courtesy of Cierra Williams

Kart kid keeps going by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer Most days, Clayton Williams of Oakley is just an average, soft-spoken 8-year-old boy. But when Clayton straps on his racing helmet and steps into his go-kart, he’s a confident winning machine. Clayton has been racing for only a year and a half, but has plenty to show for it: several shelves in his racing-themed bedroom are already crowded with trophies. This past go-kart season, he entered 25 races, finished in the top five in 23, earned a place on the podium for 13 and took the checkered flag twice. Most recently, Clayton won the NorCal Gold Rush in his age bracket, battling more than a dozen other young drivers. “Once he’s in that seat, he’s a whole different kid,” said Clayton’s grandfather Dwight. Clayton has tried other sports, but nothing got his blood going quite like racing. A go-kart belonging to a friend got him interested. He was so excited to give it a try that he persuaded his parents to sell his quad to pay for a go-kart,

which his father, Doug, said he picked up on craigslist in Los Banos for $600. According to Clayton’s mother, Jeannine, many racers drive brand-new karts that cost as much as $2,000. Clayton is also superstitious about not washing his racing suit, something that he said brings back good memories from every track he’s raced on. Clayton is looking forward to a bright future, one that now involves a bigger go-kart. He’ll be bumped up to the 9-to-12-year-old bracket, meaning there will be an adjustment to some new wheels, capable of hitting speeds of 40 to 45 miles per hour. Clayton said he’s ready for the challenge and excited for the chance to keep racing. “It’s challenging sometimes just because it’s so consuming, with practice,” Doug said. “When he has a race, it’s a whole weekend. We do practice a lot. It’s a big learning curve for me and the whole family.” Though this year’s race season is over, Clayton will be back on tracks all over the state in February.

Jamboree from page 1B “Playing four games in four days is tough,” said Heritage head coach Lexy Tamony. “There are a lot of different styles of play that we will have to contend with over the course of four days, so we will have to be able to adapt on the fly.” Spectators will see not only good basketball; odds are they’ll see players who will be a force in women’s basketball for years to come. WNBA rosters currently boast 13 West Coast Jamboree alumnae, five of whom were taken in the top 10 of their respective drafts. In total, the West Coast Jamboree comprises 16 tournaments held at 11 locations in the Bay Area. Games will also be held at Vallejo’s Jesse Bethel High School, Livermore’s Las Positas College, Orinda’s Miramonte High School, and Alhambra High School in Martinez.

BVAL notebook: Pats win in double OT by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer It took two overtimes, but Heritage High’s girls varsity basketball team toppled Northgate last weekend 76-62 in the Northgate Tournament. The Patriots scored 17 points in the second overtime to claim victory, giving them a 6-2 record at week’s end. Sophomore forward Ali Ramirez led Heritage with 21 points. Sophomore post player Sabrina Engelstad netted 15 points. Ramirez, Engelstand and sophomore guard Erin Asher were named to the all-tournament team. “I expected this preseason to be a learning experience,” said Heritage head coach Lexy Tamony. “I didn’t really have expectations for wins and losses; I just wanted the team to be willing to learn and be coachable – and they’ve exceeded my expectations.” December is treating Liberty well, as the Lions have started the month 4-3. As of Monday, they’re 5-5 overall, and looking forward to next week’s West Coast Jamboree. Antioch will head into the Jamboree hoping to improve on its 2-8 record. The Panthers’ last loss came Dec. 16 in a 65-36 drubbing at the hands of Mission San Jose. Boys basketball Deer Valley senior forward Andre McPhail put up a double-double in last weekend’s 81-68 win over Rodriguez. McPhail

Speedy Bobcats finish strong The Edna Hill Middle School cross country team has gone the distance this season, finishing with a 5-0 record. Far East County middle schools Adams, Bristow, Delta Vista, Excelsior and O’Hara Park each hosted a meet providing a 1½-mile course for sixth-graders and a 2-mile course for runners in seventh and eighth grades. Although most of the courses encircled the host schools, all runners appeared to enjoy the terrain at Edna Hill’s new competition course at Round Valley Regional Preserve. The following Bobcats ran to victory and finished in the top five at the five meets: Eighth-graders Giovanny Colchado, Mathew Drake, Timothy Drake, Hailey Schneider, Guisell Morales and Michael Fuson; seventh-graders Collin Richardson, Ar-

turo Torres, Hunter Bentancourt, Kaitlynn Zdroik, Emily Wylie and Miriam Velador; and sixth-graders Samuel Porras, Jonathan Arevalo and Luke Becker. Other runners included eighth-graders Grant Mathias and Zack Allen; seventh-graders Julian Carrera, Ashlan Parker, Deyanira Ortiz and Leticia Barraza; and and sixth-graders Michael Sudweeks, Jason Dominguez, and Zachary Cohn.

Medicare enrollment open for new year by Marla Luckhardt It’s time again for end-of-the-year open enrollment for Medicare insurance. Open enrollment means anyone can change insurance coverage, and Medicare recipients needn’t take physicals – or answer a lot of inane questions. The open enrollment form is short, and you can’t be refused coverage. Due to all the health care legislation in Washington – passed and pending – some insurance companies are changing procedures, so it’s wise to look at your options for Medicare supplements. Since Evercare opted out

of California, I met with my insurance broker, reviewed alternatives for my mom and made a decision based on a comfortable monthly cost and co-pays. Shopping for insurance isn’t unlike like shopping for anything else: since so many products are available, you need to gather as much data as you can and pick a program that best fits your needs and budget. I always take heed of what the experts say. A good and kind insurance broker is the key to guiding you through the mumbo-jumbo of information. I started to read through all the insurance

possibilities, and after scratching my head, asked my broker to help me choose coverage that seemed best for my mom. Find a broker who’ll also be available after helping obtain your coverage; a broker who’ll answer questions as they come up and help you if you run into a confusing snag. I can call my broker any time, and he’s happy to answer my questions. As you go through your choices, make sure your doctor accepts the new insurance. The doctors and the hospitals to choose from are organized in groups, so when you choose a primary-care physician, you also pick a medical group such as Sutter Delta or John Muir.

The sippy cup: friend or foe? The sippy cup is a spill-proof, lid-covered drinking cup designed to help parents teach their toddlers how to drink without spilling. Thanks to a special valve, children can toss the cup, drop it and turn it upside down, but they can’t spill its contents. Day after day, countless parents reach for that sippy cup their toddlers love so well, proud that the bottle is a thing of

the past, and thrilled that their car seats and living room carpets will be spared. But parents should think twice before allowing extended use of the sippy cup. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children be weaned from the bottle at ages 12 to 14 months and be encouraged to drink from a cup. Parents are cautioned, however, that repetitive consumption of liquids

15B

Madoshi from page 1B would work out and shoot hoops as often as possible. Asha said if her son is not at school or home, he’s at the gym. She prides herself on taking a stern line with Namuji and his three siblings, letting only friends to come to her home and not allowing her kids to stay overnight anywhere else. Since Kwiyukwa’s death, it’s been a rough road for Namuji, who is averaging 14 points and 7.3 rebounds per game this season for Antioch. He started high school at Pittsburg, playing for the Pirates freshman team. Poor grades, however, kept him away from the court his sophomore year. Namuji transferred to Antioch after that, but struggled in the classroom once again and couldn’t play for the Panthers in his junior year. Woolery didn’t know Namuji until he showed up at tryouts this year. When the tall, lanky kid said he wanted to play, Woolery happily found a spot on the team. He asked some former Antioch players, who also work out at 24-Hour Fitness, about Namuji’s game, and heard nothing but rave reviews. Namuji has surprising touch from the three-point line and is listed as a guard, even though he, senior center Jalon Daniels and junior forward Jared Mlekush are all the same height. Near the top of the brick-lined Don Richardson Gym, banners note every sport’s league championships. Sandwiched between baseball’s 13 titles and cross country’s five, basketball’s cloth is bare. It’s the only boys team at Antioch to have never won a league title. Though the Panthers are off to a 4-6 start, Woolery believes the senior-laden team might have a chance to finally change that, with help from Namuji. The coach has become an important part of Namuji’s life on and off the court. Woolery played basketball at Fairfax High in Los Angeles and was a point guard for the University of Santa Clara in the early 1990s. Woolery most recently was a graduate assistant at his alma mater before taking the head job with the Panthers. Woolery, who has a wife and 7-yearold daughter, sees Namuji as the son he never had. Text messages go back and forth every day about basketball, life and school. They send each other YouTube clips of great players, past and present, and share a love for the game. Woolery also makes sure to stay on Namuji about grades so he can keep playing and have a future after high school. “He’s been a father figure to me, so it’s helped a lot,” Namuji said. “He understands where I’m coming from.” Though Namuji has played only a few games of varsity basketball, Woolery said he’s already received inquiries from Los Medanos College, City College of San Francisco, Chico State, the University of San Francisco and the University of California, Davis. The phone might stop ringing, Woolery fears, if Namuji doesn’t keep studying. But for 32 minutes a night, Namuji is able to dream. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.
