Green Ranger Hector David, Jr., left, and Red Ranger Alex Heartman high-five birthday boy Aaron Tanner. And he didn’t need long to wait. Alex Heartman – the Red Ranger – and Hector David, Jr. arrived in street clothes laden with gifts for the galvanized birthday boy. “We’re really happy to be here,” said

Heartman, who connected with the Tanners through a mutual friend who served on Aaron’s team of medical specialists. “Aaron’s story is a pretty powerful thing.”

“We feel very blessed to be here,” added David, who along with Heartman signed autographs, posed for pictures and see Superhero page 12A

Superheroes, as everyone knows, leap tall buildings in a single bound, battle bad guys and wear cool costumes. Last weekend Aaron Tanner was clearly that guy. Blazing around the park dressed in his superhero finest, cape flying, blond hair blowing in the wind and cherub cheeks glowing, the 7-year-old enjoyed the time of his life – and rightly so. It’s been nearly two years since the sweetfaced boy with a passion for Power Rangers underwent a super heroic heart and kidney transplant. Today he has come out on the other side healthy, happy and ready to roll. “Talk about perspective,” said Elizabeth Tanner, Aaron’s mom. “We’re just so happy with how things have turned out. Everything looks a lot brighter from this side of the street.” The Tanners celebrated their superhero’s miraculous birthday Saturday with a superhero-themed party featuring face painting, bouncy houses, a proclamation from the mayor and visit from the pinnacle of superhero status: the Red and Green Rangers from Nickelodeon’s megahit show “The Power Rangers.” “I can’t wait to see the Power Rangers,” said an energized Aaron as raced around the park with his friends. “That’s what I want.”

Church expands walls to increase outreach by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Brentwood serves more than 5,700 families, but with the addition of a new community center, the church hopes to reach out to even more of East County. Last August, parishioners dedicated and opened the 12,000-square-foot Community Life Center, which includes a multipurpose room, a library, classrooms, parish offices and a commercial kitchen. The new addition also necessitated the creation of 193 parking stalls, and in the future, a picnic area will be set up in one of the church’s many landscaped areas. “Expanding was critical to the mission of the church,” said Deacon Ron Horan, who served as project manager. “We want to reach as many people as possible, and the walls of our church simply couldn’t provide the space for all the things we wanted to do for our parishioners and the community.” Immaculate Heart of Mary first came to Brentwood in the 1940s. Parishioners worshiped from a First Street church for many years, but as Brentwood’s population exploded in the 1990s, the need for a larger facility became a priority. The church moved into a new house of worship at the corner of Central Boulevard and Fairview Avenue in 2005, but as more families moved to Brentwood, church leaders realized they’d need more space. A capital campaign was launched in 2009 to raise the $2 million needed to build the new facility. Through community fundraisers and donations from church parishioners, the church got the green light to begin construction in 2010. “When we were raising funds, we made it very clear that expanding our church wasn’t about building this cocoon around the Immaculate Heart of Mary community,” Horan said. “We’re not trying to isolate ourselves. We want to have

Outreach is very important to us.” The Community Life Center is made up of a series of modular buildings expertly fused together and camouflaged with stucco aesthetics to give the appearance of a Spanish courtyard. The facilities are used regularly by the church’s 107 organizations – the classrooms by 1,500 children for catechism, and the multipurpose room for celebrations and town hall meetings. “The Center is everything we wanted it to be and more,” Horan said. “I don’t know what we would do without it, and we look forward to expanding our services to better serve the community.”

Horan said one of the most successful programs hosted in the new center is the St. Vincent de Paul Society’s Friday food distribution. Not only do families in need collect food to feed their families for several days; they’re offered a meal to enjoy in the comfort of the multipurpose room. Immaculate Heart of Mary is looking forward to the second year of its community garden, another new development made in conjunction with the construction of the Community Life Center. Last year’s inaugural crop yielded 2,500 pounds of fruit and vegetables to be donated to those in need. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Protestors rally against the 1 percent by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Horn honking, thumbs-ups and high fives from passersby flooded downtown Brentwood on Tuesday as members of Moveon.org gathered in front of the Bank of America building to demand that the wealthiest 1 percent of the population start paying their fair share. “Today is about raising public awareness of the inequality in taxes,” said Chris Flores, organizer of the event. “One percent of the population in this country has the vast amount of the wealth and yet they are paying far less of their share than they should.” The rally was part of a nationwide effort called the Tax the 1% National Day of Action, held – fittingly – on tax day. And in downtown Brentwood, the dozen or so protestors raised their picket signs inscribed with messages that read “We are the 99%” and “Make Them Pay.” Flores said the group chose to gather in front of Bank of America on First Street because the corporation as a whole is one of the most egregious offenders when it comes to paying taxes. According to Flores, Bank of America owes billions of dollars in outstanding taxes. The peaceful protest came on the heels of a recent 99% Spring Training event held at The Game Sports Pub ’N Pizza in Brentwood, part of a nationwide effort to train 100,000 residents how to

And Flores believes it’s a movement whose time has come. “Over the last year, we have seen the greatest rise in progressive activism in generations,” he wrote in a recent press re-

lease. “From the protests in Wisconsin to actions targeting the Keystone pipeline, Occupy Wall Street to Move Your Money, progressives stood up, took to the streets, took action and changed the debate in the nation. 99% Spring will train the country back for the 100%.”

Caregiver-turned-survivor keeps fighting cancer by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer When doctors saw the complexity of Margaret Souza’s lung cancer, they gave her six to 12 months to live. That’s just what she did. The Oakley resident and her husband, Ace Giles, sold their house, bought a motorhome and toured the western United States. Souza figured that such a short timeline meant she should make time count. Souza and Giles went to Washington, Idaho, Utah and saw the Grand Canyon in Arizona. “It actually didn’t soak in at first,� said Giles, trying to fight back the tears. “Then they started giving us percentages of survival. The largest number of people die within the first two years with that disease.� But a funny thing happened as the motorhome scooted from place to place. Six months went by, and Souza was still alive. Then a year passed. Doctors discovered that the treatments and the chemotherapy had shrunk the cancer in her lungs and lymph nodes to a safe level. Now it’s seven years after her diagnosis, and Souza is still going strong. “She’s like Superwoman,� said Margaret’s niece Regina Hernandez. “She’s always been an on-the-go person. She’s busy; she doesn’t sit still – it’s just how she is.� Souza is a survivor and member of Malia’s Ohana, an Antioch/Pittsburg Relay for Life team that has been a mainstay of the event for the past 10 years.

say that 3 percent live to five years, and I’m on my seventh year. I don’t know what percent that makes it, but I like it. I definitely like it.� It was Marie who got Margaret involved in Relay for Life. After Marie was diagnosed in May of 2001, Margaret quit her job as an accountant to take care of her sister.

Cancer has been a nemesis to Souza’s family. Her mother contracted ovarian and breast cancer – and survived. Souza has lost two cousins to lung cancer. Now, roughly 15 relatives and family friends participate in Relay, which benefits the American Cancer Society. On Saturday from 2 to 5 p.m. at Most Holy Rosary Church, 1313 A St. in Antioch, the Antioch/Pittsburg Relay will throw a Survivor Birthday Party for Souza and other local cancer survivors. When Souza was diagnosed in 2005, she felt more prepared because of her experience with Marie. Giles quit his job as an electrician and welder to be at Souza’s side. Souza also fought back following a heart attack while she and Giles were in Utah, roughly a year after her cancer diagnosis. After doctors told Souza that the cancer had shrunk and showed no signs of growing, the couple breathed a huge sigh of relief. Despite Souza’s concern that the cancer could return, she’s elated to have made it this far. Through the Relay event, Souza has formed valuable relationships with other caregivers and survivors. “It’s been an amazing journey,â€? Souza said. “I feel so fortunate, and I thank God for that – that I’ve gotten this far.â€?

other websites you can check are rent.com, trulia.com and hotpads.com. You will also need to check the classified section of the local newspapers and their websites, which would be thepress.net and hotcoco.com. Next would be calling all the local property managers and asking what properties they currently have available. And then on top of all that, you need to just drive around and look for “for rent” signs (and look at bulletin boards, too). I know, I know.... This is a horribly inefficient way to do it. But following all my advice above is the only way to find the majority of homes for rent, and even then, you’ll still be missing some!

Last week I told you about some of the things to be careful of when renting a home. Now I’ll tell you how to FIND a home for rent. When you want to find a home for SALE, it’s pretty easy. Nearly all homes for sale these days wind up on the MLS system that agents check or Realtor.com somehow. If you can get signed up on a website, or have an agent log a search for you into the system, you’ll find out about almost all the homes for sale. It’s almost universal. Not so with homes for rent, unfortunately. It’s more of a hodgepodge of several places to check, with no one place having even a majority of the homes for rent. The first would be to have an agent run a search on the MLS. But per my warning above, you are still going to be missing a LOT of the available rentals. The next place to check would be CraigsList.com, BUT you need to be very careful and watch out for scams where the “landlord” doesn’t really own the home at all. For more info check out my article from last week, or contact me for a copy of that article. A couple of

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters Marriage Marriage is such an interesting concept in its own right, defining marriage as a mortgage and you’ve now officially dedicated an entire column to your cause. Let’s start with – speaking generally and loosely of the post -World War II age demographic that purchased their first home with their first husband, or wife, and kept both until their dying day – our grandparents, or great-grandparents (depending). These individuals thought loooong term: no instant gratification via the internet, cell phone, or other means of communication other than a land-line, postal service, or walk or ride your bike to your friend’s house. When they signed up for a commitment, it was a commitment. These individuals married their spouse for the long haul and thought the same way with their mortgage…30 years or more into a marriage and 30 years into a mortgage…they thought of fixed products across the board. Statistically speaking, in 1950 the divorce rate was sitting at 1,070 per every 100,000 for men and 1,373 per every 100,000 for women. Fast forward to 2010 and – per information gathered via the US Census Bureau – divorce rates have risen to 9,255 per every 100,000 men and 12,305 per every 100,000 women. Add that increase of eight percent on top of the fact that, as a nation, our foreclosure rate in 2010 was at a record high of twelve percent and it is not an opinion when stated, “Commitment, in the form of a marriage or a mortgage, isn’t quite what it used to be.” That said, and after reviewing these facts, it is very

important to see the other side of the coin. With an eight percent divorce rate and twelve percent foreclose rate it is easy to mathematically determine that eighty-eight percent of both marriages and mortgages, in the long haul, last. In other words, there is still more than enough statistical data to support the idea of having both a good marriage and a good mortgage. Now, I’m not a marriage counselor, but I am a nationally licensed Mortgage Loan Originator (MLO), and I can tell you that from my experienced MLO standpoint, I’ve observed that communication is the key to a good mortgage. It is invaluable to discuss your loan term goals before jumping into any type of commitment…especially one with such long term consequences, i.e., a mortgage. When discussing the idea of purchasing a home, as with – and, again, I’m not a marriage counselor – discussing the idea of entering into a marriage, it is important to regress to the thoughts and ideas of those before us. “Can you live with this commitment for 30 years (or more)?” is the question/conversation you should be having with your MLO. If the answer to this question is yes, than you have my blessing. If the answer is no, than I object to this relationship, and I seriously think that you should consider the reasons behind my objection, and then ask yourself again if you can live with your commitment for at least 30 years. As always, I welcome all questions and or concerns pertaining to real estate lending on my cell phone, 925-726-1444, or via email, tfreymortgages@yahoo.com. – Advertisement

Keep little ones safe this boating season There are two camps when it comes to boating with babies: those convinced you’re crazy and those who think nothing of it. So at just what age is it safe to have children aboard? The answer: when the parents are comfortable and caON THE pable. Let’s face it – most don’t think ATER twice about tossing junior in the car and heading off to do life. The yellow line down the middle of the road or red light at an intersection both rely on CAPT. JON the judgment and BLOOM attention of others completely out of your control. Why is boating perceived differently? Maybe it’s a bit of unfamiliarity combined with an innate fear of drowning. Operator competence and good judgment a given, an infant in a boat is “statistically” safer than one in a vehicle. My kids have been on boats (sail and power) since before they were 1. A bit of preparation and planning is all that’s necessary. It’s probably no surprise that infants love the motion and noise associ-

W

ated with being on the water. Whether it’s a gentle rocking at anchor or the drone of an engine, most babies are very content going for a boat ride. Placing the car seat low on the floor and wedging it against a seat or bulkhead provides a secure, wind-free ride. The trick to a baby PFD (personal floatation device) is starting well ahead of time by donning it at home while doing something they enjoy, like eating. Start slow and increase the wear time until they don’t think twice about wearing it. Proper fit is important for safety and comfort, so don’t buy big that allows for room to grow. Remember that shade and sunscreen are important to ensure sensitive skin doesn’t get cooked. Lastly, exhaust fumes are no bueno so keep them away from the transom area, as CO (carbon monoxide) tends to settle there. There’s an awkward toddler period when they no longer tolerate being trapped by the car seat yet aren’t surefooted enough to be left to their own mobility. This age requires the most onboard supervision, an adult or older sibling that will sit with junior while under way. When they get the wiggles see Boating page 11A

Superhero from page 1A with Heartman signed autographs, posed for pictures and spent some time eating birthday cake and jumping in the bouncy houses. “This kind of thing reminds us why we do what we do.� But for the neighbors, family and friends in attendance, no reminder was needed. Aaron’s journey riveted the community since it began in 2009, when he was placed on an organ donor list for a heart and kidney transplant. Born with a birth defect that caused his heart to function on only the right side, over the years Aaron underwent seven open-heart surgeries to correct the problem. But when doctors discovered that renal failure was putting too much pressure on Aaron’s heart, they decided he’d need a heart and kidney transplant to survive. It took a year to find a donor. During that time Aaron, then 5, endured thrice weekly kidney dialysis treatments to keep him alive. Throughout the yearlong ordeal, the Tanners, including dad Mark and older brothers Noah and Nicholas, received an outpouring of support from friends, family and community well-wishers. “When you look around Brentwood you see a very community-oriented town, and there’s a reason for that,� said Mayor Bob Taylor as he presented Aaron with a birthday proclamation. “This is a community that cares. A couple of years ago, things with Aaron were a little bit different, but he is a true miracle. It’s a special honor to be here today.� While Aaron will continue to be monitored by annual checkups throughout his life, doctors have given him a clean bill health and expect the second-grader to enjoy a long and healthy life. “We are so grateful to everyone for their love and support,� said Elizabeth. “We could never have gotten through all this without the prayers of everyone. There’s no way to ever thank people for what they have done for Aaron and our family.� To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Becoming sustainable in policy and practice by Becky and Al Courchesne Frog Hollow Farm The word “sustainable” gets a lot of play these days. The looming challenges that climate change poses make sustainability more than just a buzz word. California has been working to address and prepare for these challenges by implementing UEST policies like the OMMENT landmark climate change law, AB 32. We appreciate the state’s leadership on these complicated issues. At Frog Hollow Farm, we think a lot about sustainability. Most of our decisions are rooted in how to ensure that our business, family, community and natural resources are not only sustained over the long term but actually get stronger and healthier. Our Brentwood farm started in 1976 on 13 acres of fertile San Joaquin River Delta land. Now we have a thriving 133 acres with

hundreds of trees that produce peaches, nectarines, cherries, apricots, apriums, plums, pluots, pears, olives, persimmons, quince, apples and more. Heirloom tomatoes are our newest crop, and we are always planting new things to find out what grows best here. To make maximum use of our harvest and build in safeguards against crop failures, we diversify our crops. We added a commercial kitchen to produce pastries, preserves and dried fruit. In the face of changing weather, pest and water conditions that come with a changing climate, we are counting on this diversity to help us adapt. We made the transition to organic practices 21 years ago. Instead of fossil fuel-based synthetic fertilizers, we use seaweed, fish, limestone and compost to build soil fertility. With the help of scientific consultants we pay for out of our farm budget, we recently embarked on an exciting new project to improve our compost production. We now recycle 100 percent of our waste products – orchard prunings, downed

LETTERS Prompt code enforcement Editor: I just wanted to let the City of Brentwood Code Enforcement Department and the Brentwood Police Department know how very much we appreciate their involvement in taking care of a (somewhat) empty house next door to our home. Homeowners need to know there is a place to go to complain about unsightly properties. It shows how very much this city cares. We had noticed people living in the house next door but thought they were renters. One day they were living in the home, the next day they were gone. We starting seeing people coming and going in the home, not the original owner. We contacted code enforcement and the police department and they acted promptly.

Instead of burning our orchard prunings (creating air pollution and emitting carbon into the atmosphere) or piling up our fruit waste to attract pests, we have healthier soils and use very few soil amendments from off our farm. The Economic and Technology Advancement Advisory Committee to the California Air Resources Board found compost can reduce the need for irrigation, fertilizers and pesticides while also increasing crop yields, stating, “This is a cost-effective way to reduce agricultural GHG emissions while sustaining California’s agricultural industry by returning organic nutrients to the soil.” In addition to addressing the climate crisis, farms like ours also provide community benefits such as open space, limiting urban sprawl and the provision of healthy, locally produced food. We are proud to employ 30 year-round workers and 60 during harvest.

We are very proud to say we live in a wonderful community like Brentwood, and that has been reinforced by the great response we have received as homeowners when contacting code enforcement and the police department with this issue.

Hoisting the flag of gratitude Editor: At 6 p.m. on this past Friday, the 13th of April, the Byron Union School District came to realize just how very lucky we are, indeed. As rain poured over the Bay Area and hail even pummeled the ground, we watched as the clouds parted and opened above our Excelsior Middle School campus, streaming down rays of sunshine as if a spotlight under which we raised our nation’s flag, the inaugural such raising for our new flag pole, constructed with Measure C Bond monies. While 200 of the Byron and Discovery Bay community looked on, the Excelsior Choir sang our national anthem to begin an evening of dedication, celebration and recognition for our school district, our staff, our families and our community. We are quite pleased and proud of what our community allowed for us to build with this bond measure, for our children today, and which we dedicate

We have implemented sustainable practices throughout our operation; we could do a lot more with some support. And with the right policies and incentives, many more California farms and ranches could make similar contributions and offer multiple benefits to their communities. Frog Hollow Farm will continue to do its part. Meanwhile, California’s brand-new cap-and-trade program – one component of the larger AB 32 program – will go into effect this year. It will create new opportunities and revenue to support activities that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It gives the state a powerful tool to move sustainability from individual projects such as ours into the mainstream. That sounds like a sustainable future we all can and should support. Becky and Al Courchesne are the owners of Frog Hollow Farm, a 133-acre California Certified Organic Farm located in Brentwood that has been committed to sustainable practices since 1989.

to all of our children in the future. On this night our community came to support and celebrate with our district, not only the work of completed construction projects but the work and success of our students and our schools themselves. All three of our district’s schools have experienced dramatic API growth over the past few years, and just over the past few weeks, both of our elementary schools were honored to have been named as California Distinguished Schools. I would like to thank and recognize our California State Superintendent, Mr. Tom Torlaksen, for joining us at our dedication and for the kind words he shared with our district family there gathered, along with Mr. Bubba Paris for his motivational message and for their combined efforts to bring healthy awareness and alternatives to school children’s meals, and for their gift of a salad bar for our new cafeteria! I would also like to thank Contra Costa County Superintendent Dr. Joe Ovick for joining us, State Sen. Mark DeSaulnier’s and Assembly Member Joan Buchanan’s offices for a special commendation recognizing our district, as well as the numerous former board members, community leaders, our families and, of course, Byron USD teachers and staff, who all contributed to mark such a special evening for our district. I would like to especially thank Bob and Darlene Meeckes, the proprietors of the Discovery Bay Sports Bar and Steakhouse, for their generous donation and service of delicious food for all in our community who attended; Ryan and Lisa Hodgson, dear friends who contributed in ways big and small to help with the

evening’s event; Kelly Basmagian for her work to help plan and coordinate; and Ashley Dicksa for her time and creativity. Finally, I would like to thank my husband and family for all of their support throughout not only this event but my time on the board, not to mention through the past 18 years of our marriage and family and all that life has brought our way! My heart is full; my cup is running over. Jill Sprenkel Byron Union School District Board of Trustees

Official appreciation Editor: I wanted to thank Oakley Police Chief Bani Kollo, Oakley’s Mayor Romick and Oakley’s Vice-Mayor Rios for attending the Liga Latina Opening Day Celebration. This is the first year that guest speakers from the city have been present at our event, and I think it was great that they took the time to attend this community event. I know that our young athletes from the Liga Latina were excited to have the mayor and vice-mayor at our event. Everyone loved that Chief Kollo participated in the penalty kick at the end of the celebration. It was great to see how the chief joked around with the youth and the referees regarding his soccer skills. I am happy to see that our police department and our city are taking the initiative to get involved with the Liga Latina. I hope to see them and other Oakley Council members at future events!

Fernandez made his parents proud by earning an academic and athletic scholarship to play soccer for the Hawks. Nick Lusson, head coach of Holy Names, welcomed Fernandez to the team. Fernandez plans on majoring in biology and pursuing a career in dentistry. He’s grateful to be able to attend a college close to home but distant enough to give him a taste of living on his own.

Deer Valley softball head coach Amy Tillson has waited all season for her team to turn the corner following the loss of several key players to graduation last year. Tuesday, her wait ended when the Wolverines won their Bay Valley Athletic League opener 5-2 over Liberty to extend their winning streak to four games. “It’s a really young team that’s coming around at the right time,” Tillson said. “We’re getting better every day. We’re a very young team and our veterans are providing great leadership.” Freshman first baseman Brandi Williams rapped out two hits, a run and an RBI for the Wolverines, (6-6-1, 1-0 BVAL) and senior Dolce Galaviz gave up one hit in three innings of relief to secure

the victory. Williams broke a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the sixth with an RBI double that scored sophomore outfielder Halle McIlvenna to give Deer Valley a 3-2 lead it wouldn’t relinquish. Deer Valley jumped on Liberty (1-5, 0-1 BVAL) freshman pitcher Ashlyn Frits, who entered in the sixth with the game tied 2-2. In addition to the double by Williams, freshman outfielder Amanda Coley scored on a groundout by senior outfielder Davianna Burney, and Williams scored on a wild pitch with Galaviz in the box to make it 5-2 Deer Valley during a threerun sixth inning. “I think we did really good,” said Wolverines freshman outfielder Renee Smith. “Our defense was good and so see Win page 22A

Patriots poised for long postseason run by Michael Dixon Correspondent

One of those is junior Carney Hocking, who finished runner-up in the BVAL tournament a season ago, losing in a playoff. Hocking is nearly two strokes better, while Bell has improved his card by more than three. Two other athletes who have upgraded their games are Volta, more than four strokes better per round, and junior Gilbert Tarin, who has cut nearly eight shots per round off last year’s scores. Tarin’s accomplishments are especially noteworthy,

as he was cut from the team as a freshman. After a year of practice, he came back as a sophomore, made the team, and has gotten significantly better in his junior year. “The scores have been way down; everyone came back a lot stronger,” Tarin said. “We’ve practiced a lot more and come back better.” The Patriots weren’t exactly starting from scratch this season. They lost none of their top players from a season ago, and will lose only Bell and Tyler Connell this year. The 2011 team finished second

Just talk with coaches and players on the Heritage boys golf team, and it’s obvious what date the Patriots have circled: April 26, Roddy Ranch Golf Club, vs. Deer Valley. A victory there would be the program’s first against the Wolverines and likely clinch a tie for the Bay Valley Athletic League’s regular season title. But even if Deer Valley beats Heritage again, the Patriots know they’ll enter the league’s championship match on April 30 in excellent position for a long postseason run, which would start at the North Coast Section qualifier. This comes from finally fielding a team not reliant on only a few players, but one more than deep enough to play in league matches, which require six players per team. “We have a lot more depth,” said senior Ryan Bell. “We’re at least a solid six-deep team, and even our backup guys have some really good scores a lot of the time.” One of the Patriots’ notable accomplishments came at the Atwater Invitational at Stevenson Ranch. Playing a course where the players had virtually no experience, Heritage won its first tournament in school history, beating 19 other teams. “It was really cool,” said sophomore Ryan Volta, whose 18-hole score of 81 was the fourth best on his team. “Nobody could stop smiling on the way back. None of us had really played there before – and that course usually plays tough – but on that day it didn’t play that bad. We just went out and dominated and were really consistent down the line.” The improvements mean more than just tournament success. Nearly every returning Patriot player has a significantly

in the BVAL to Deer Valley. This year, their only loss in league came to the Wolverines in a two-stroke heartbreaker. Head coach Mark Tinder feels this team can learn from that experience, noting that two shots over five players is a small amount. “Deer Valley has always clipped us by not having a big number,” Tinder said. “They usually have one great score and one good score, and the rest decent. They always beat us with the decent numbers. But I think we can do it now.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Win from page 19A were our bats.” Early on, the Lions looked like they would pick up their first league victory – equaling their entire BVAL win total from last season. After Liberty pitcher Victoria Bratsher led off the third with a triple, she scored one batter later on a single by Frits to make it 1-0 Lions. Junior utility player Olive Paredes singled home senior third baseman Alex Elder in the fourth to make it 2-0 Liberty, but that was all the Lions offense could muster off Deer Valley freshman starter Rachel Jones. “We got a little too comfortable when we got up the two runs,” Liberty head coach Stacie Del Chairo said. “We needed to explode from there and continue putting the ball in play, continue running the bases and continue scoring.” Bratsher was in command for the Lions during the first four innings, giving up only a single and a walk, before she lost control in the fifth with the Lions up 2-0. A leadoff walk to Williams in the bottom of the inning spelled doom for Bratsher. Junior second baseman Alyssa Slate and

junior third baseman Maleia Namauleg drilled back-to-back doubles, which allowed Slate and Williams to score, erasing the two-run deficit for the Wolverines. Galaviz picked up the win for Deer Valley while Bratsher suffered the loss for the Lions.

Antioch 2, Freedom 1 It took 11 innings, but Antioch scored an upset 2-1 victory over longtime league champion Freedom on Tuesday to open BVAL play. Shelbi Graifman earned the win, defeating Madison Williams. Senior right fielder Morgan Perry drove in Chelsey Ferguson for the game-winning run in the final frame. “It was actually a surprise,” Panthers head coach John Rebstock said. “We hadn’t been playing very well, but we picked it up to start league.”

Heritage 11, Pittsburg 0 Heritage opened BVAL play with a burst of offensive firepower in an 11-0 win over Pittsburg. Kayla Barber and Lisa Rodrigues notched triples and four Patriots tacked on two hits. Rodrigues also fanned 11 Pirates in a game shortened by the mercy rule.

Extras from page 21A senior Ronny Brohman connected with a fastball for a single to bring Borrelli home. “A close game like this is always fun,” said Brohman, who also won the game in relief. “It’s even better when it’s won in walk-off fashion. If it weren’t me, it would’ve been the guy behind me.” Antioch also got a valiant effort from sophomore starting pitcher David Quintero, who went 7.1 innings, fanning five Falcons (4-8-1, 0-1 BVAL). Quintero for most of the game was locked into a pitcher’s duel with Freedom junior Miguel Carvajal, who struck out six in six innings. Though Falcons manager Gary Alexander felt his team’s performance could’ve been better, he was impressed by Carvajal’s pitching. “He’s had two really good outings in a row,” Alexander said. “He deserved to win that game.” Antioch got on the scoreboard initially on a first-inning RBI single from senior first baseman Troy Amate. Freedom answered in the next frame with an RBI hit from Shea Sbranti and a sacrifice fly by TJ Briggs to make it 2-1. The Panthers tied the game in the sixth inning on a Cha-

Jordan Gough and Marcos Martinez drove in the game’s only two runs for Deer Valley (13-1, 1-0 BVAL), both in the fourth inning. Lions (5-7, 0-1 BVAL) senior Stevan Zaharias was saddled with the loss, but pitched well, fanning eight Wolverines and walking none.

Cherry’s Tax Facts... By Cherry Comstock

Eight Things to Know If You Receive an IRS Notice Each year, the Internal Revenue Service sends millions of letters and notices to taxpayers for a variety of reasons. Here are eight things to know about IRS notices – just in case one shows up in your mailbox. 1. Don’t panic. Many of these letters can be dealt with simply and painlessly. 2. There are a number of reasons why the IRS might send you a notice. Notices may request payment of taxes, notify you of changes to your account, or request additional information. The notice you receive normally covers a very specific issue about your account or tax return. 3. Each letter and notice offers specific instructions on what you are asked to do to satisfy the inquiry. 4. If you receive a correction notice, you should review the correspondence and compare it with the information on your return. Then contact your tax pro. 5. After review with your tax pro, you will decide your next step. If you agree with the correction to your account, then usually no reply is necessary unless a payment is due or the notice directs otherwise.

6. If you do not agree with the correction the IRS made, it is important that you respond as requested. Your tax pro can help you prepare a written explanation of why you disagree and include any documents and information you want the IRS to consider, along with the bottom tear-off portion of the notice. Mail the information to the IRS address shown in the upper lefthand corner of the notice. Allow at least 30 days for a response. 7. Most correspondence can be handled without calling or visiting an IRS office. The choice to respond personally in these matters is fine. Just remember, your tax pro sees many of such correspondence every year. The explanation necessary to clear up such matters may just be semantics. Always notify your tax pro of any inquiries from the IRS. 8. It’s important that you keep copies of any correspondence with your records. Should you have questions feel free to contact our office.  www.jettax.org, info@www.jettax.org, or call (925)778-0281.  One of our enrolled agents will be happy to assist you.

Raptor Baseline East County is a haven for birds of prey: hawks, falcons – even golden eagles – and naturalist Mike Moran is the natural choice of guides to lead the fun, social, citizen-science research project known as Raptor Baseline. That right: you can participate in the process of documenting the variety and number of these magnificent creatures. No experience is necessary. Mike will teach you how to identify these birds – on the fly. The adventure strikes out from the Round Valley trailhead on Marsh Creek Road (between the Highway 4 Bypass and Deer Valley Road) on Thursday, April 26 at 9 a.m. and ends around 11:30 a.m. Registration is required. Call 888-327-2757, option 2 and ask for activity 28512.

Shooting the Light The low and enchanting light of dawn is the optimal formula for optical splendor. Naturalist and photographer Kevin Damstra spearheads a journey along supremely photogenic terrain in Shooting the Light, held Saturday, April 28 from 8 a.m. to noon at Black Diamond Mines. Take Somersville Road south to

where it dead-ends at the upper parking lot by the trailhead. And don’t even think of leaving your camera behind. Registration is required, and heavy rain will cancel the excursion. Call 888327-2757, option 2 and ask for activity 28445.

Somersville Grand Tour Also at Black Diamond on Saturday, April 28, seniors (55 and up) get escorted through some of East County’s most fascinating history. Your driver and guide, naturalist Bob Kanagaki, takes you up to Black Diamond’s Rose Hill Cemetery (road conditions permitting), Eureka Slope and Hazel-Atlas Mine from 9:30 a.m. to noon. The fee is $5, and registration is required. Call 888-327-2757, option 2 and ask for activity 28213.

Tracks and Scat If you think you’ve never seen a fox, bobcat or coyote in the wild, naturalist Cat Taylor bets you see those creatures every time you go hiking. The secret? Just look down. There on the trail is the signature of their presence: footprints and feces. On Saturday, April 28 from 7 to 10:30 a.m., Taylor leads Dirt Time: Tracks and Scat in the remote and rugged landscapes of Morgan Territory, located off Morgan Territory Road south of Marsh Creek Road. We’re confident this Sherlock Holmes investigation into the habits of our fellow mammals will be taken at a moderate pace – when on poop patrol, the last thing you want to hear from the person in charge is “Step on it!” For information, call 510-544-3249. see April page 7B

Kaiser Permanente keeps four-star rating For the fourth straight year, Kaiser Permanente is the only health plan in California to earn a four-star rating – the highest possible – for overall quality of care in the Healthcare Quality Report Card from the California Office of the Patient Advocate (OPA). Kaiser Permanente in both Northern and Southern California also received four stars in the Members Rate their HMO category, which measures patient satisfaction with their care and service. The 2012 report card (online at www. opa.ca.gov/report_card) provides California consumers side-by-side comparisons of the nine largest health plans in the state, ranking them on national standard-of-care measures that involve treatment of a range of acute and chronic conditions, and preventive care that has long-term implications on personal health. “Kaiser Permanente is consistently recognized for providing high-quality health care

and is frequently cited as a model for the future of health care,” said Gregory A. Adams, president of Kaiser Permanente Health Plan/ Hospitals, Inc. in Northern California. “Our model of care, based on prevention, coordination, integrated electronic medical records and prepayment rather than fee-for-service, creates a strong foundation for delivering high-quality, affordable and accessible health care.” This year, Kaiser Permanente in Northern California earned four stars in eight of the nine report-card categories for clinical care, including asthma and lung care, checking for cancer, diabetes care, heart care, maternity care and mental health. “To provide superior medical treatment in the 21st century, you need the best physicians, the most advanced technology and excellence across all disciplines: primary care, specialty care, outpatient and inpatient care,” said Dr. Robert Pearl, executive director and CEO of The Permanente Medical Group.

“Based on this report and our No. 1 ranking by the National Committee for Quality Assurance, Kaiser Permanente is the best in California in these areas and in the very top echelon of health care programs in the country. This report demonstrates some of the reasons our patients have a 30 percent lower chance of dying from heart disease and stroke than patients treated in the communities around us.” The 2012 OPA ratings follow several other recent honors received by Kaiser Permanente: Kaiser Permanente Northern California’s Medicare Plan was rated best in the country in the NCQA’s 2011 health plan rankings. In all, seven of Kaiser’s Permanente’s eight regions around the country were ranked in the Top 20 for Medicare Plans. Kaiser Permanente’s Medicare plans in California received an overall rating of five stars for parts C and D, the highest rating available from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for 2012.

Call Call 888-327-2757, option 2 and ask for activity 28518.

Meet the Author of ‘Rose Hill’ A century and a half ago, coal fed the furnace of the Industrial Revolution. So crucial was coal to the cause of the West that it was dubbed “black diamond.” Beneath the hills of south Antioch the earth’s crust is rippled black with veins of that diamond. And there, beneath one particular hill, rest the bones of those whose fate was to dig it out. Traci Parent’s recently published “Rose Hill – A Comprehensive History of a Pioneer Cemetery” chronicles life – and death – in the 19th-century Mount Diablo Coal Field. On Sunday, April 29 from 1 to 3 p.m., you get to walk and talk with Parent. Meet in the upper parking lot at the end of Somersville Road. The event is restricted to those 8 and older. For more information, call 510-544-2750.

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property.

If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to section 2924g of the California Civil Code.
