Mirant to kick in $1.7M if plant OK’d by Dave Roberts Staff Writer An energy company’s plan to build a new power plant on Wilbur Avenue might also energize the recreational activities at the Antioch Community Center, which is due to open a year from now in Prewett Park. Mirant Corporation has agreed to give the City of Antioch $1.7 million for community benefits in exchange for city officials’ support for its plan to build the Marsh Landing Generating Station next to its existing Contra Costa Power Plant on Wilbur Avenue (the one with the giant smokestack). Ironically, the plant site is not in Antioch – it’s under county control. But city officials hope to annex the Wilbur Avenue area into Antioch in the future. Some or most of the $1.7 million, most of which would be doled out in the first few years of the plant’s operation, could be used to help pay for the operation and maintenance of the Antioch Community Center, Economic Development Director Guy Bjerke told the City Council at its July 28 meeting. Currently, with

the city in the throes of a severe budget crisis, there’s a chance that the community center could open in August of 2010 without much money to provide staffing for programs and activities. Councilman Brian Kalinowski said he appreciates the offer of $1.7 million but believes it’s inadequate compensation for a plant that could be in operation for 50 years on Wilbur Avenue. “I’m not trying to say, ‘Shame on you for $1.7 million,’” he said. “But if we polled everybody in the audience, they would say, ‘For 30 to 50 years, that’s a hell of a bargain.’” Kalinowski asked Mirant California President John Chillemi to commit to increasing that amount. Chillemi responded that he doesn’t have the authority to make that commitment on his own, but added, “We have an existing business here and we have shown a corporate commitment. But with this type of investment … I would anticipate stepping up to the community even more so.” Councilman Reggie Moore encouraged him to follow through on that, saying it would help ensure see Mirant page 22A

There is little philosophical difference between the five Democrats seeking to represent the 10th Congressional District, which includes Antioch and Oakley. And there’s little philosophical difference between the six Republicans who are also seeking to fill the congressional seat vacated when Ellen Tauscher recently took a job in the U.S. State Department. But there’s a chasm the size of the Grand Canyon be-

tween the philosophies of the two parties on issues such as energy, immigration, health care and foreign policy, as revealed in a candidate forum at St. Mary’s College Tuesday night. The only issue all of the candidates agreed on is the need for more fiscal responsibility in government spending. The top vote getters from each party in the Sept. 1 special primary election will face off in the general election in November – unless one candidate wins see Candidates page 22A

The Third World becomes a special world by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

The intent behind Ryann Newman’s trip to the forests of Bosnia was to make a difference in the lives of others. But as Newman quickly discovered, the life that was most impacted was her own. “I went into this really wanting to make an imprint on them (the people of Bosnia),” said Newman, 29. “But the imprint, I’ve learned, was really on me.” The Oakley resident and Los Medanos College student has recently returned from a month abroad: two weeks in Bosnia followed by another two weeks in Croatia as part of a group called International Student Volunteers, Inc. The nonprofit organization offers volunteer opportunities to students around the world in a variety of conservation and community development projects. Travel with a purpose is how the program is billed, and what’s different about the organization is that following a two-week volunteer stint, students have the option of continuing on for another two-week adventure tour in a nearby host country. Newman, who chose Bosnia as her volunteer location largely because “I wanted to go to a place where I wouldn’t typically go,” spent two weeks clearing forests, building bridges and restoring trails. And despite the fact that the war there ended nearly 15 years ago, Newman said the people and the countryside still bear

The Oakley resident spent two weeks this summer working in the forests of Bosnia as part of an international volunteer group. the scars of the conflict. “It’s a gorgeous, gorgeous country,” said Newman. “but you can still see the effects of the war: bullet holes in houses and missing parts of roofs, things like that. At

first they (local residents) couldn’t understand why we were there – the concept of volunteering – because basically they work just to survive. But they were so kind to us, so accepting.”

Newman and her 11 co-workers stayed in a tiny town called Kakanj and made the trek each morning up the mountain to the Mehoric forest, where they spent the day clearing the forest of garbage (“they didn’t understand that a plastic bottle buried 20 years ago is still there”) and working side by side with forestry employees. While the accommodations were primitive – no toilets, hot water or showers – the hospitality was first-rate. Each day a woman who lived nearby would visit Newman’s group, bringing them food and materials to help them get acclimated to their surroundings. Even the mayor got into the act, said Newman, periodically sending people from the village up to the mountain with additional supplies. “That was really appreciated,” said Newman. “Because it took us over an hour to get into town. People just couldn’t do enough for us; they were so gracious. I’ve made some friends there for life.” And with no TVs, iPods or computers to distract them, Newman and her group had plenty of time to make friends. “We all became very close very quickly by sharing this experience,” she said. “We would spend hours just drinking coffee around the camp and talking. I had books that I brought and I didn’t even get to them. “The first couple of days were hard; I went in expecting hot water and showers and toilets, but got used to bathing in the see Third World page 19A

HISTORY

Lake Tahoe – the odyssey of a name William Mero

John Marsh Historical Trust How many know that a famous Brentwood-Byron pioneer, Robert Dean, was responsible for naming Lake Tahoe? Dean was born in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. in 1831. Arriving in California in 1850, he first tried his luck in the gold fields. By 1853 he was working in the Brentwood area as a haying hand on Dr. John Marsh’s huge Rancho Los Meganos. In 1854, Dean was collecting blueberries along the banks of the San Joaquin River near Stockton when a giant grizzly attacked. Only the arrival of friends saved his life. The bear was killed but only after Dean’s abdomen was ripped open by the enraged beast. Dean spent the next six months recovering from his dreadful wounds. Dean eventually returned to the gold fields, ran a hotel in the Sierras, and participated in the famous Comstock silver rush. He returned to Brentwood in 1870 and worked for the Balfour-Guthrie and McNear grain interests. As a businessman, banker and newspaper writer, Dean was well known throughout the county. This article is largely based on his personal papers that were recently donated to the Contra Costa History Society. In his own handwriting, there is a detailed description of how Lake Tahoe received its name. These notes were the basis for a

Lake Tahoe would be known today as Bigler Lake if not for the efforts of Brentwood-area resident Robert Garwood Dean, seen here in around 1920 with his wife, Jerusha. Dean led the effort to change the lake’s name because of the pro-slavery, pro-Southern posture of its original namesake, Gov. John Bigler. short article that appeared in a 1908 edition of Sunset Magazine In 1852 the state legislature received word that a large, ill-prepared party of

YMCA looks to the future Did you know that the YMCA practically invented basketball, volleyball, softball, camping, adult education, Boy Scouts, Father’s Day and much more? It’s true: the YMCA has been around for 165 years – and more than 50 years in Contra Costa County. My name is Bob Wollenzien and I have spent more than 35 years in the YMCA movement, recently taking on the responsibility of developing and expanding services in East County. Although the YMCA in East County is focused primarily in Oakley and Antioch, we’re looking to reach out into the Pittsburg, Brentwood, Knightsen and Discovery Bay communities. The YMCA’s current facility, slated for expansion, is located in Oakley and is available to all East County residents. What are the needs of our communities? The YMCA is in the process of asking residents and business leaders that question. The Mount Diablo Region YMCA is conducting a needs assessment as it relates to a strategic planning process to help provide a direction for the YMCA over the next five years. Although the YMCA does plan on running programs such as aquatics, youth sports, childcare, health and wellness in most if not all

of East County, programs such as job training, ESL, healthy cooking and affordable after-school programs could all be part of new opportunities and programs. As you can tell from our mission statement – “The Mount Diablo Region YMCA is a values-based association founded on Judeo-Christian principles, dedicated to enriching the lives of all people through programs that strengthen the spirit, mind and body” – the YMCA is a broad and diverse organization. Our programs are developed and created based on the needs of the people and community we serve – that’s what makes the YMCA unique. Program development has and will continue to be part of our history. What are your needs and those of your community? If there’s a gap, think about the Y. We will work with you to help meet those needs. What can you expect in the next five years? An Expanded YMCA facility, diverse programs in ALL of East County, a YMCA that’s the hub of the community, a safe place for children, teens, adult and seniors.

immigrants were attempting to cross the Sierra. Money was hastily appropriated and the Democratic governor, John Bigler, quickly dispatched supplies to the

Sierra. Bigler and friends arrived in the Tahoe basin with the supply-laden pack train. In those early days, Lake Tahoe was informally known as “Mountain Lake.” The governor and his friends took the opportunity to enjoy the valley’s excellent fishing and hunting. Evidently the behavior of our politicians has changed little in 150 years. Although in reality it was the California taxpayers who were responsible, the governor had few problems accepting the credit from the grateful immigrants. Bigler’s large party then proceeded to Hangtown (later known as Placerville). A large, festive banquet was held in appreciation of the immigrants’ rescue. After the participants had swallowed numerous toasts, one of the governor’s friends proposed that Mountain Lake be renamed “Bigler Lake.” The well-oiled crowd enthusiastically adopted this suggestion. For the next 10 years, “Bigler Lake” went unchallenged. With the outbreak of the Civil War, Bigler was revealed as a strong Southern, pro-slavery sympathizer and an active participant in a plot to separate California from the Union. In 1862, Dean was the manager of a popular resort hotel beside Bigler Lake, and a staunch Republican and strong Lincoln supporter. He became increasingly upset that this beautiful lake was named after see Tahoe page 8A

seems content with himself. (I must say he did stop whistling for a moment the day he received his AARP card in the mail). I want to know who gave my name to the Scooter Store. Why do I keep getting their e-mails offering free financing for a Scooter Chair and a free “Handy Grabber�? What is a Handy Grabber? Why, it’s that clever claw-like contraption that allows you to grab things like, oh I don’t know, maybe denture cream off the counter while sitting in your Scooter Chair! Ahhhhh! I’m beginning to glance over my shoulder, expecting to see the grim reaper standing there. In a panic, I’m wearing younger and younger clothes. I expect that soon I’ll be shopping at The Children’s Place. Seriously, last week I bought a beach cover-up at Justice for Girls in size 16 (their largest size.) Pathetic! I am finding younger and younger men attractive. I flirted with a 20-year-old kid at a skate shop. He was probably really creeped out. Hey, can I be arrested for that? At 50 you are also encouraged to put yourself through a lot of grueling and humiliating medical tests. Katie Couric scared the heck out of me with her story about her poor husband dying of colon cancer. Tragic. So I thought I would get it over with. I know I had the delightful procedure done at a hospital, but quite honestly I think it was really Roto-Rooter! By the way, I will never eat lemon Jello again, as that is the only thing you can eat the day before the procedure. I ate two large serving bowls of it. Blah! My 7-year-old daughter recently put it all in perspective for me. I still lie with her at night before she falls asleep. I don’t mind. I love gazing at her soft and dewy line-less face. Her long lashes and rosy lips. As I was admiring her, she asked, “Can you look this way? I want to see your beautiful face.� As she dozed off I realized that to her, I will always be beautiful, no matter how old I am. Maybe turning 50 isn’t so scary after all.

MORE “PHANTOM INCOME� ISSUES I’ve been doing more research into the issue surrounding tax owed on “phantom income� in regards to cancelled debt. This is where you may owe ordinary income tax on any debt you owe that is cancelled. This is something of a hot topic these days with all the people going through short sales, foreclosures, or loan modifications. [I’ve mentioned this many times before, but it’s worth repeating. There is an exclusion to paying this tax if you are insolvent, which means your debts exceed your assets.] I discovered two items of interest recently. One I should have been aware of, the other was not quite so obvious. The first one is that cancellation of debt income is NOT just for mortgage debt. So this means if you have HOA dues that are forgiven, or property taxes, or any other bill that is cancelled or forgiven, you may have “phantom income� tax due. I think most of us in real estate assume that the phantom income situation deals only with the loans on your home, but it is much

broader than that, unfortunately. So this can apply at any point in your life if you have a car loan cancelled, student loan forgiven, etc. There is an exclusion if the lender intended to cancel this debt as a “gift� to you. So if your debt was owed to a relative, you might be able to make the gift exclusion work if that was their intent, but that may cause other wrinkles in regards to their estate and gift taxes. I’ll talk about the second issue I just discovered in my next article. It is something that may cause the phantom income tax issue hang over your head for years to come.

Music magic at First Five Brentwood children can show their creative side during a free 45-minute program on Wednesday, Aug. 19 at the First Five Center, where participants will make musical crafts and enjoy a hands-on encounter with percussion instruments. Scientific studies have repeatedly proven that exposure to music benefits children. A 2003 Chinese study found improved verbal skills in musically-trained grade-school children, while the Dana Arts and Cognition Consortium announced in 2008 that young musicians also demonstrate improved mathematical skills. A Brown University study conducted with 4-to-6-year-olds reinforced

these findings, revealing that children who participated in a year of music lessons showed greater improvement in literacy, math, verbal memory and attention to detail than those who did not take lessons. The First Five program is sponsored by the Friends of the Brentwood Library and is designed for children in grades K through six, although younger children are welcome if accompanied by an adult. First Five Center is located at 760 First St. at the corner of First and Maple streets, and the show starts at 4 p.m. For more information, call the Brentwood Library at 925-516-5290 or visit www.ccclib. org.

“big water.” When Dean reported back to his friends and guests, the Indian name was adopted by unanimous consent. It was decided that the lake would now be known as “Lake Tahoo.” With the approval of his friends, Dean wrote to the Republican editors of the Sacramento Union, at that time one of the most influential newspapers in the state. The newspaper embraced his suggestion and published a fiery editorial supporting the new name for the Sierra lake. Other pro-Union newspapers took up the cause. The patriotic and generally pro-Union public very quickly accepted the new name. However, there was one slight accident. Due to a typo in the Union’s original editorial, the lake now became known throughout California as “Lake Tahoe” rather than “Lake Tahoo.” However, as it turned out, the fight over naming Lake Tahoe was far from over. After the Civil War, the Republican Party split over nominating a gubernatorial candidate. John Bidwell was defeated at the 1867 Republican nominating convention by an unpopular candidate from Southern California. The Republicans were in disarray, which led to a subsequent sweep of the state house and legislature by a resurgent Democratic Party. Revenge was sweet for the jubilant Democrats. One of the first items on their political agenda was to erase the Republican insult to the memory of their beloved Bigler. After a short but intense lobbying campaign, the legislature overwhelmingly passed a bill officially renaming the magnificent body of water “Bigler Lake.” Official state documents and maps were soon published referring to the giant lake as “Bigler Lake.” Nevertheless, the general public wisely ignored the command of the state legislature. Within a few years the “Bigler Lake” name was forgotten. The Republican-dominated federal government also ignored the Democratic name change. On federal topographic and geologic maps, “Lake Tahoe” continued as the primary, recognized name. In 1870, Dean returned to Brentwood and was made superintendent of the old Marsh Rancho, where he had once worked as a haying hand. He also became a successful banker and grain shipper, building warehouses in Brentwood and Byron. Perhaps his most enjoyable personal activity was as a part-time correspondent for the Byron Times. He wrote a gossipy, weekly column (the “Rye-patch Gang”) that poked fun at the foibles of the local citizens. He was proud of his historic role in naming Lake Tahoe. On April 14, 1920 Dean died, a famous and beloved local pioneer who had seen the transition of California from a primitive, raw frontier to a state filled with prosperous farms and modern cities. It should be noted that the act renaming the water body as “Bigler Lake” has never been officially rescinded by our state legislature. Therefore, diehard Democrats will probably continue to enjoy the great snowboarding at Bigler Lake. The few remaining California Republicans will likely prefer the skiing at Lake Tahoe.

Byron schools get high-tech upgrades by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Last month as students soaked up the dog days of summer, staff at the Byron Union School District (BUSD) were hopping onto the Information Highway. “What we’ve had here in Byron (school district) is an un-standardized (computer) program,” said BUSD Superintendent Eric Prater. “All we’ve really had is an aging system with no plans to upgrade or improve.” But thanks to a forward-thinking school board and Measure C bond dollars, the district now boasts $1.3 million in computer upgrades, along with a technology called Thin Computing. Thin Computing is a system-based server that replaces the PC (personal computer) and accompanying CPU (Central Processing Unit). With Thin Computing, users simply plug into an outlet, which in turn connects them to a server. The only physical items needed are a monitor, keyboard and mouse (referred to collectively as virtual desktop technology). So with no individual CPU connections, management and service issues are more easily handled; the logic being that it is more cost-effective to manage a few servers rather than thousands of desktop PCs. And, said Prater, should an individual component of the desktop technology – such as a keyboard or monitor – break down, the entire system can be replaced for less than $200. “Economically it’s a no-brainer and was a critical piece of the component,” said Prater, who estimates the district saved nearly double the cost of the upgrades with Thin Computing. “If we had gone with CPUs, the cost of setting up and tending to them (individual computers) would have been impossible. This is a cost savings in

many ways.” Over the past few months, WYSE Technology Inc. has been installing the new technology at all three campuses, including a server at each site, three new computer labs (with 10 times the current storage capacity) at Excelsior Middle School, and subsequent labs – one each – at Discovery Bay Elementary and Timber Point. In addition, each of the district’s 100 classrooms will provide four permanent virtual desktops. The district has also purchased instructional stations for all the teachers, which includes digital projection cameras that operate much like regular overhead projectors. Students will also be able to create their own central storage files, which allow them to log on at any of the school’s sites to access their personal files and information. “We are one of the first school districts in the state to invest in this technology and we’re pretty excited,” said Prater. “It’s pretty snazzy.” Currently 75 percent on line, the rest of the system is expected to be up and running within the next few weeks. But for the students in Louise Colbert’s math lab at Excelsior, the new technology has already begun to make a difference. “This (new math computer program) is easier for me,” said seventh-grader Alma Vidrio as she worked on one of the new upgraded computers. “It helps me get better at math and I can go at my own pace.” “We are so happy to have it (the new lab and upgraded programs) as a math support,” said Colbert, who is also the district’s technology coordinator. “This helps fill in the gaps for the kids, and is also a confidence builder.” For Prater’s part, he’s satisfied that the $1.3 million of the $19.7 million Measure C dollars have been implemented in the spirit of the bond language. “When I came on board with the district (in 2008), the board asked me to re-calibrate the intent of the bond

We improved a two-lane country road and turned it into an eight-lane highway – an information highway. It’s pretty cool stuff.”

When Elizabeth Cruz-Hurtado entered Liberty High School as a ninthgrader, she didn’t think of herself as a good student, and had no college aspirations.

Veterans come together in classroom by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

The two men couldn’t be much different. One is a robust fellow of 39 who soars well above 6 feet tall, tips the scales at 325 pounds, and whose face exudes confidence and strength. The other is a diminutive 91year-old whose fragile frame is bent by the years, and whose knowing eyes gaze out from a weathered face lined with age. The study in contrast came together last week in Fran Curtis’ classroom at the Joseph A. Ovick School in Brentwood. Sponsored by the Contra Costa County Office of Education, the two men were there not because of their differences, but for something they had in common: war. The elder man was Retired U.S. Army Sgt. Vincent Silva, a survivor of World War II’s infamous Bataan Death March of 1942 and prisoner of the Japanese for three and a half years. Students sat transfixed as they heard stories of torture and abuse at the hands of his captors. Delivered in detail that surprised the students, Silva’s message was also more upbeat than they expected. “He remembered everything, even though he’s 91,” said Lavonce Juarez. “And he kept giving us a positive message, telling us to stay in school.” Chris Maldonado said he was surprised that Silva wasn’t bitter toward all Japanese, considering the torture he had endured. “He said that not all Japanese were bad,” he said. “It was just the people they were fighting at

Silva, along with four-tour Iraq veteran Maj. Eric Boettcher, right, visited their Brentwood classroom last week. the time.” The younger of the two men was Army Reservist Maj. Eric Boettcher, who recently returned from Iraq with his second Bronze Star. As the chief of operations of the Mosul Reconstruction Operations Center, Boettcher assisted the Mosul government with its rebuilding efforts and oversaw humanitarian assistance. He’s been deployed to various parts of the world four times (twice to Iraq), but nevertheless impressed the students with how ordinary he was. “He’s just a regular guy,” said Julie Esquivel. “He has to have a job here, too, and take care of his family.” Boettcher said he told the students about his experiences because he believes it’s his duty.

“My calling and my responsibility as a returning veteran is to tell them the real stories, the real successes our soldiers do out there,” he said. What American troops accomplish is done with not only the spiritual support of those at home, but the materials donated to the cause as well. Much of what is sent overseas contributes to the troops’ well being by allowing them to provide day-to-day needs to the people of Iraq, and in order to keep the donations flowing, he said, “I need to get out and tell my story.” He credited the East County community for the many donated supplies that he and his unit used to help the people of Mosul. The classroom meeting was actually the second for the two veterans. The previous weekend, they had been the guests of Brent-

wood Café owner Paul Boulos, who hosted a welcome-home breakfast for Boettcher that was also a thank-you meal for Silva. It was there that Curtis, himself a veteran of Vietnam, met the men and invited them to his classroom. “I think they (students) were really shocked at the education level” of the two, Curtis said. In addition to the exhortations to stay in school, the students’ education will also benefit from the visit via Silva’s donation of a copy of his book “Senso Owari,” which documents his ordeal. Curtis will use the book in his English class as an alternative selection for Character-based Reading, in which students are presented with real-life challenges that will or can be altered by their choices in life. – Penny Cannon contributed to this story

Mom says thanks Editor: I want to take this time to thank everyone who participated at the Black Bear fundraiser (for Freedom student Ally Jenkins). Jimmy and Brenda, we love you! And all those who helped them … you mean everything to us. I’ve received pictures today from the evening as well as pictures from Freedom today as students sported their pink and white T-shirts and wristbands. Again, all of this is so overwhelming and humbling to Jeff, Corey and me. I refer to all of you here at UCSF as my prayer warriors. My strength. I lift all of you up in prayer and I’m so grateful to each and every one of you. I can’t wait for the day to bring my baby home. I can picture it now. Driving across the Bay Bridge on a beautiful sunny day. Looking at Ally smiling, breathing in the air. Reaching our town of Oakley with our wonderful friends, family and neighbors there. I can’t wait to hug each and every one of you! Pray for a miracle! Vickee Jenkins Oakley For more on the fundraiser and Ally, see Talk About Town on page 5A.

Calling for a gate debate Editor: I was told last weekend about the twogates “Fish Protection” Project to install two large water gates within the next 90 days, which will automatically close two of the key waterways between Bethel Island and Discovery Bay, six hours at a time, twice a day during the winter. My husband and I live in Discovery Bay – a Delta waterfront community. We are here because we love the Delta. Our weekends and vacations involve traveling by boat to various areas of the Delta – Bethel Island, Stockton, Sacramento – and we can continue down to San Francisco or beyond. Unlike people who jump in their cars on weekends to go on an outing or for a drive,

our waterways are our roads that take us to our weekends on the water. We chose to build our retirement home in Discovery Bay due to its access to the beautiful Delta. But these gates will cut off our access! Currently we have year-round 24x7 access from Discovery Bay to the Delta and beyond. But once these two gates are in position, the only route from Discovery Bay to elsewhere in the Delta requires larger boats to go through the Bacon Island Bridge, which only operates from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and breaks periodically. Today, if we miss the bridge hours or if the bridge has a maintenance issue and can’t open (which happens several times a year), we can take a different route. And in the evening, we can get still home by going from the San Joaquin channel down Old River to Discovery Bay. But these are the waterways these gates are going to block! Plus adding big obstructions to heavily traveled waterways is a bad idea. These are some of the best waterways for skiers and wakeboarders. And the only route between Discovery Bay and Bethel Island. And there are safety questions. Will there be sufficient notice of the gates being closed? Are the gate openings wide enough that there will be no damage to big boats coming through the opening during storms or in the fog, at night? Has the effect on the levee walls due to holding back the tide been studied? And economic questions. Will our home values decrease due to obstructed access to the Delta? How will marinas in this area be affected? And the neighboring community of Bethel Island depends on Discovery Bay patrons for its economy: restaurants, marinas. What will be the impact to that area due to limited access to areas on the other side of these gates for bass fishing and other events? Many questions. The stated goal of this project is to protect the endangered smelt, but I’m struggling getting that keeping fish from their fresh water spawning grounds is “protecting” them in some environmentally friendly way. What’s impacting them is the poor water quality and getting caught in the pumps. The best option is to shut down the pumping stations a few times in the winter during spawning season, which also improves the Delta water quality dramatically. But the water companies want more water, not less pumped out. We need answers to questions about boater safety, reliability (will they stay open all summer reliably?), usability (since hours of operation cannot be posted), etc. before this project proceeds. Most importantly, there needs to be a reliable plan for 24/7 access to Discovery Bay! Jan McCleery Discovery Bay

Red Cross.” Mr. Visintin states that the DBPOA is being audited by the IRS. Yes, Frank and I wonder who called and asked them to audit us (hmm). Also, if you are a consultant, you should know that money from the DBPOA cannot be given the Red Cross. Mr. Visintin asks, what does the DBPOA do? The DBPOA is governed strictly by the CC&Rs that every homeowner signs when they purchase a home in the association. There is no rocket science here. Read your copy of the document, Frank. He brings up the recent resignations from the board. The board members, who are volunteers, are elected for a two-year term. Several board members resigned because of the constant barrage of harassing e-mails with unfounded accusations against the board by a small group of residents, Mr. Visintin in particular. The treasurer resigned because she moved from Discovery Bay to a new job location. As a result of the time and money it has cost the association to answer frivolous charges, many that date back to the 1980s and 1990s, we have had to manage our budget by cutting inspections in half, yet complaints continue to come in from residents and they are frustrated with the lag time in receiving a response. Our cost for insurance, which is required by the state, is between $10,000 and $14,000 per year. We also spend a lot of money on witness fees, mailing fees and legal fees generated by this band of malcontents. This has a serious impact on the ability of the board to serve the association as they are elected to do. I recently attended a court proceeding as an observer. During a break, I was confronted by Mr. Tony Sellers in the restroom. He proceeded to make threats and slanderous accusations toward me of a personal nature. A gentleman who knows Mr. Sellers apologized to me for his behavior. Mr. Sellers then proceeded to run out of the restroom and leave the premises. This is just one example of what the board has had to deal with on an ongoing basis. It is clear that the actions of the abovenamed individuals are aimed at bankrupting the DBPOA and seeing it dissolved. They do not speak for the majority of the association members and I hope that those who appreciate the efforts of the DBPOA will speak out against these malcontents. It is time the hard-earned money of the association members went to what it was intended per the CC&Rs. Be sure to vote in the upcoming elections. If you do not vote, there may be further cuts.

It can always be worse Editor: I came within minutes of losing my husband of 35 years to bladder surgery gone wrong. It’s been two years and 11 months since this nightmare began and

seven months since his surgery. I walked him in that morning with my gut telling me to take him home; do it another day. I, of course, did not. From start to finish it all went wrong; things I never imagined. After 11 hours, his surgeon said he was fine and wouldn’t be out of recovery for hours. He told us there was nothing we could do and to go home get some sleep. Fifteen minutes after I arrived home (a 40 minute drive) I received a call requesting me and my sons to return. He’d taken a turn for the worse. I was informed he wouldn’t make the night. I ran in the ICU room to them trying to save his life. I have never cried so many hours or days in my entire life. He was on life support for weeks, only to come home and three days a week have kidney dialysis, home nurse, ER stays, etc. He’s a proud and private man and not once has he complained through these seven months of hell. To end it all, as of today he finished up months of chemo. I feel he has angels looking after him; we were told Friday he’s a walking miracle. But never say to yourself it couldn’t get worse because I’m here to tell you it can. See, I was grocery shopping last week and behind me was a young man in his early 20s. After conversing with him, he is one of our heroes, a soldier who came home paralyzed. My heart sank as I thought to myself: he’s just a baby. His smile lit up the aisle. How dare I complain when there is always someone worse off than I? ClaraLynn Locklin-Robles Oakley

Aug. 8, 1:58 a.m. Officers of the Antioch Police Department responded to the report of a fight and an injured man on Gardenia Court. Upon arrival, officers found a 29-year-old male Pittsburg resident unconscious at the scene suffering from injuries to his face. He was transported by ambulance to the hospital. It was discovered that the man had been dealt extensive head injuries and was in critical condition. Antioch Police have identified 30-year-old David Moreno Stokes as the person responsible for the assault. Stokes is currently on parole for corporal injury to a spouse or cohabitant. He is believed to be at large in the Bay Area and has an extensive violent criminal history. Shannon Marie Kaiser, 30, was identified as the owner of the house where the crime took place. A search of the house revealed approximately 45 grams of methamphetamine and paraphernalia used to prepare methamphetamine for distribution. Antioch police were also able to determine that Kaiser transported Stokes from the scene. Kaiser refused to disclose this to police, and misled police about many aspects of this case, including the identity of Stokes, whom she has known for many years. She has been charged with possession of methamphetamine for sale and for aiding and abetting a felon. Those who spots Stokes should contact their local jurisdiction by calling 911, and those with information regarding this case should contact Antioch Police Det. Mellone at 925-779-6930.

It was hard to leave.” But after making the eight-hour bus ride to the city of Debrovnik, situated on the shores of the Adriatic Sea, Newman managed to adjust. “Once we arrived, we hopped onto our private yacht, where we were fed three amazing

At Fort Knox, Ky., Longo completed eight weeks of Basic Training that included military discipline, Army core values, basic combat skills, physical fitness and the use of various weapons. He then completed eight weeks of Advanced Infantry Training (AIT), specializing in armor. There he learned armored tactics, driving skills in M1A1 Abrams tanks and humvees, as well as various warfare principles and skills. He graduated on Jan. 30, 2009 with badges in marksmanship with the M-4 rifle and expert in grenades. Longo is the husband of Nicole (Shockley) Longo, a 2007 Freedom High School graduate.

It was very luxurious.” But once she arrived home, the culture shock was even more glaring. “It was sad to come home and see all these Wal-Marts and to realize how we can do with so much less,” said Newman. “I’ve been inspired to clean out my closets and donate items I’m no longer using or need. The trip definitely changed me. I’m happy to be home, but I miss where I was; I miss the people and the countryside and the quiet. It was an amazing experience, one I will never forget.”

Sgt. Thomas McGredy has been approved to receive the Purple Heart medal. He was injured in the back and head when his tank hit a mine while on a mission in Afghanistan. McGredy is back on active duty, his second tour, after six-week recuperation. His first tour took him to Iraq at the time of Saddam Hussein’s arrest.

The scholarships, combined with student loans, allowed CruzHurtado to attend St. Mary’s College, where she earned Dean’s List honors every semester. Four years later, after graduating from St. Mary’s summa cum laude, she’s convinced she can perform any task facing her, and is returning to LUHSD to teach English

at Heritage High School. According to Liberty TLC Director Kandy Aldana, “Expectations at our academy are extremely high, and Liz was a model TLC student. She even comes back every year to encourage our new students.” TLC teacher Karen Cailotto echoed Aldana’s sentiments: “Within these four walls, magic will happen. She (Cruz-Hurtado) is going to change the lives of every student lucky enough to walk through that door.” – Submitted by Sarah Singrin


Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Streamline 203(k) With roughly 180 homes for sale in Brentwood, and nearly 100 fewer in neighboring Discovery Bay, our local real estate market is saturated with buyers but missing a crucial element – inventory. It doesn’t help matters that many homes for sale are shells of what they once were, torn apart by the previous owners out of anger and frustration. These previously proud owners were forced to view their home as the bank does – simply a number on a spreadsheet – and made a business decision to make money where they could. Left in their wake now stand homes not more than three years old missing sinks, stoves, lighting fixtures, water heaters, air conditioning units, even the furnace out of the attic in the worst cases. For would-be buyers these homes aren’t an option…why pay for a home only to then pay to repair the home is their rationale. Many times, to those in the dark about the Streamline 203(K), these cases turn into a three step process: find financing to purchase the home; find financing for the work needed to repair the home; and then find permanent financing in the form of a mortgage to finish off the project. However, before cutting homes in need of rehabilitation off of your list, or struggling to find loan options, consider the highly under used, but yet highly effective, Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Streamline 203(k). Homes that require under $35,000 in non-structural repairs are eligible for this often overlooked product, and, according to Brian D. Montgomery, Assistant Secretary for Housing to the Federal Housing Commissioner, the FHA Streamline 203(k) program can be used to replace/ repair the following items just to name a few:

· Repair/Replacement of roofs, gutters and downspouts · Repair/Replacement/upgrade of existing HVAC systems · Repair/Replacement/upgrade of plumbing and electrical systems · Repair/Replacement of flooring · Minor remodeling, such as kitchens, which does not involve structural repairs · Painting, both exterior and interior · Weatherization, including storm windows and doors, insulation, weather stripping, etc. · Purchase and installation of appliances, including free-standing ranges, refrigerators, washers/dryers, dishwashers and microwave ovens · Accessibility improvements for persons with disabilities In other words, homes that are deemed structurally sound but are missing key items such as a stove, or an entire kitchen, should be put back on your tour of potentials. The FHA Streamline 203(k) is simply another form of the FHA financing many East Contra Costa County buyers already plan to use, and just like a standard FHA loan, only requires a 3.5% down payment. Monies needed for repairs/replacement are kept in an escrow account after closing and already built into the purchase price. Imagine, finding the home and the neighborhood you’re looking for, and then being told you’ll also have free range to choose the updated materials throughout! If you have any real estate lending related questions or concerns, or wish to speak with a Streamline 203(k) expert, don’t hesitate to write me at tfreymortgages@yahoo.com or call me directly on my new cell phone, (925) 726-1444. – Advertisement

Particularly in these tough times, we are looking to our partnerships with the corporate world to help bridge this (funding) gap.”

Candidates from page 1A by getting more than 50 percent of the vote in the primary, which is unlikely given the large field. The candidates for the minor parties – Green, American Independent and Peace and Freedom – have already been selected because they are running unopposed. The other main difference between the candidates for the two major parties is that the Democratic field includes three well-known politicians – Lt. Gov. John Garamendi, state Sen. Mark DeSaulnier and state Assemblywoman Joan Buchanan – while the Republicans consist of relatively unknown political neophytes. The other two Democrats are investigator Adriel Hampton and economic policy analyst Anthony Woods. The Republicans are small-business owner Chris Bunch, retired peace officer Gary Clift, businessman David Harmer, small-business owner Mark Loos, accountabilitysystem owner David Peterson and physician John Toth. One of the bigger philosophical contrasts between the two parties concerned global warming and the cap-and-trade bill designed to fight it, which recently passed in the House of Representatives but has stalled in the Senate. Most Democrats fear there will be environmental disaster if cap-and-trade, which is designed to curb pollution by limiting greenhouse gas emissions, and similar measures aren’t approved. Most

The gas-fired plant is expected to produce about 930 megawatts of electricity. In comparison, PG&E’s recently opened Gateway Generating Station, located next to the site of the proposed Mirant plant, is producing 530 megawatts – enough electricity for PG&E’s nearly 400,000 northern and central California customers. Before it can begin construction, Mirant must get approval from the California Energy Commission as

Republicans believe cap-and-trade will result in economic devastation while making a miniscule impact on global warming. “I believe in quick action to stem the growing concern of climate change,” said DeSaulnier, who co-authored SB 375, which is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in California. “One of the greatest challenges is to correct the mistakes we have made. We are clearly polluting the atmosphere,” agreed Garamendi. “We have got to control the greenhouse gases. We can do this and grow the economy simultaneously.” Woods echoed that, saying, “We need to take climate change very seriously. It’s the number-one strategic threat in the world. It’s time to take it very, very seriously. If we confront it today, we can do something about it.” Buchanan agreed: “Global warming is real. It’s the single greatest threat to our environment and economy. We need to do all we can to convert to an economy not dependent on oil.” But she was more cautious about cap-and-trade, saying it should be used “as an interim measure. It should be there as bridge.” Hampton, who agrees with his fellow Democrats about the seriousness of global warming, was cautious on capand-trade, saying that Congress needs “to make sure that cap-and-trade doesn’t have a devastating impact on small businesses and consumers. It’s important to limit emissions. The most effective things

well as obtain funding through a competitive application process with other energy companies. The council’s approval is needed to help with the approval of those applications. The council voted unanimously to tentatively provide that approval, with the provision that Kalinowski and city staff meet with Mirant officials in the coming months to discuss increasing the company’s $1.7 million contribution to community programs.

I see are reducing dependence on oil and fossil fuels.” The Republicans believe cap-andtrade will do more harm than good, and they support nuclear power as a clean energy alternative to fossil fuels. “Cap-and-trade is the most devastating single tax that will ever be placed on American industry and American families,” said Bunch. “This will be brutal for business. We will lose 2½ million jobs in manufacturing and industry to globalization per year. Over $400 billion will be lost to our gross domestic product. The net effect of the cap-and-trade bill is one-tenth of one degree in global temperature by the year 2050. Are you ready to pay $3,000 to $4,500 additional in energy costs in your family for that one-tenth of a degree?” Peterson said that cap-and-trade is just a system providing subsidies for the oil and coal industry. He prefers developing nuclear power plants, which have improved their safety, and eliminating the subsidy on imported oil. “Cap-and-trade is a moot point,” said Harmer. “It appears dead in the Senate because of the political tradeoffs. Labeled as being an important environmental protection, it includes subsidies to the dirtiest and most polluting producers.” According to Toth, “Cap-and-trade is based on flawed science … (and) is a scheme for globalization. They have to destroy our economy. Nuclear energy

is a no-brainer – it’s the safest form of energy. It gives plenty of energy at very little cost.” Clift said that the implementation of nuclear energy should be left up to the states and local communities to decide, but agreed with the other Republicans on cap-and-trade, saying “it is dying. It was not well thought out. It doesn’t make sense to have the few jobs we have left move to foreign countries.” Loos also supports construction of a lot more nuclear power plants and opposes cap-and-trade, saying it will damage the economy and provide the government direct access to citizens’ bank accounts. Other issues discussed at the forum, in which the Democrats spoke for an hour followed by an hour with the Republicans, followed a similar pattern. Democrats generally supported governmental solutions to problems while Republicans were concerned that the government often does more harm than good in its attempts to solve societal problems. The major contrast among the Democratic candidates concerned their experience. Political newcomers Hampton and Woods argued that it’s better to send fresh faces with new ideas, instead of career politicians, to Washington, D.C. On the other hand, Buchanan, DeSaulnier and Garamendi touted their years of accomplishment in public service as an asset in representing the 10th District.

Freedom golfers to play on Bethel Island by Dave Roberts Staff Writer Freedom High’s girls golf team will be driving, chipping and putting on the Bethel Island Golf Course this season instead of at the Shadow Lakes course after Shadow Lakes decided to charge the team $20,000 to play there this season. Although the girls will need to travel farther to play on an older, less elegant course, it’s better than the alternative: canceling the girls golf season. “$20,000 is a little more than what Freedom can spend,” said Freedom Athletic Director Steve Amaro to several hundred athletes and parents at the school’s preseason sports night last week. “We don’t spend that on football. Not that football is more important than golf. It’s just that this is something that we don’t spend on any of our sports. Luckily, Bethel Island came to our rescue, so our girls golf team will be able to play this year. It’s a little windy out there, but they will learn to deal with it.” State budget cutbacks are hurting school districts throughout the state. “The state of the athletic department is ever fluctuating,” said Amaro. “We all know the economic times we live in are very hard. There have been some drastic impacts not only athletically but academically. Freshman English classes, which used to be 20to-1 (student-to-teacher ratios) are now 30to-1. All of the Freedom sports have lost all paid assistant coaching positions.

Freedom High Athletic Director Steve Amaro talks to parents and students at the school’s preseason sports night last week. “There’s a lot of gloom and doom that can be said about this. But you can also look at the positive side. This is a time when our athletes can truly shine. This is a time when we can create some innovation and find ways where we can be maybe a model district for the entire state.” Thus far the only athletes required to pay the $75 transportation fee are the football players, he said. But other sports could be affected as well, depending on whether they require bus transportation.

“If a team decides to take a bus, we are going to have to charge parents for that,” he said. “I do hope that the Freedom community continues to rally around what we have done better than all of other high schools, which is that we have a lot of parent drivers. When a bus leaves this lot and goes the twomile trek to Liberty, it costs us $500. So that adds up very quickly.” Amaro told the players and parents to go online to www.highschoolsports.net to view the Freedom High page listing team

schedules, rules, forms and newspaper articles. He advised athletes to stay away from energy drinks, which he said can contain potentially unsafe levels of caffeine and which have led to the disqualification of Olympic athletes who drank them before competition. “Water’s the best thing, especially when it gets very hot,” he told the parents, adding, “Talk to your son and daughter about hydrating.” He also provided cautionary advice about online social networking sites. “They have become very positive for people to get to know each other, but also have been very negative ways to break down self esteem,” he said. “At a school in Los Angeles’ girls basketball game the student section went to Myspace and found the point guard’s information. And when she went for a free throw they shouted out information from her Myspace page, and she went 0 for 10.” Providing too much personal information online can also lead to identify theft, he added. The well-attended event in Freedom’s gymnasium was for the school’s fall sports teams: boys and girls water polo, football, coed cross country, girls golf, girls volleyball and girls tennis. After Amaro finished his remarks, the athletes and parents broke into groups based on the sport the student is planning to participate in and received more detailed information from the respective coaches.

Asked about his team’s strengths and weaknesses, he said, “I don’t know what’s going to happen. I don’t know what our weaknesses are until we go out there. I think our strength should be our defense. Our weakness may be the inexperience at the receiver position and a little on the line. A strength will be the running game. And weakness will be the passing game – but I don’t know.

Gladiators from page 1B might have won it, according to Lloyd, if not for some suspect officiating in the championship game against an Arizona team they had beaten by 20 points the day before. “The guys were five feet away from a guy (on the other team) making a jump shot and the guy missed the jump shot and the referee had a foul call,” said Lloyd. “The other coach said to the ref, ‘We don’t want to win like that.’ (My) guys were upset, but I told them, ‘Win or lose, I am proud of you.’” They lost the championship, but the basketball program and Lloyd’s mentorship, which includes encouraging the younger players to get good grades in school and providing the older players job counseling, has definitely been a win for the young Gladiators. “I have seen them evolve from being negative to being positive as far as saying ‘thank you,’” said Lloyd. “After Vegas they said, ‘Thank you, Coach, we really appreciate you.’ These guys are showing gratitude; they are showing concern for others. Rather than ‘What can I get for me?’ it’s ‘Coach, what can I do for you?’ After the game I went to my room and shed a few tears and thought, ‘Wow, these guys have really grown up.’ They said, ‘Coach, nobody has really done anything like that for us except you.’ I said, ‘If you did not come out here, I could not coach you guys.’ They are more mature and have grown up.” But it’s challenging running a bas-

ketball program on a shoestring budget. Lloyd had hoped to get his team out of the hot weather on the court at Dallas Ranch Middle School and into the gym, but had no luck in getting school district approval. And then, after an article on the team appeared in the Antioch Press, a woman from the district office called Lloyd to tell him he would be charged $12/hour just to play on the outside courts. To get around that, he’s no longer holding practices on the courts but just meeting his players there for pickup games and shootarounds. “I am just trying to keep these guys out of trouble,” he said. “These guys have this talent that people don’t get to see them play at the high school level. That’s when I step in; my program is an alternative. A lot of people talk about what needs to be done, but they are not doing it. I am just trying to do something positive.” The players who brought home the silver trophy are Barry White, Donavon Williams, Mike Crawley, Tori Mclennan, Jamaal Davis, Steve Sullivan, David Edmond, Kevin Powell, Joseph Cowles and Henry Williams. Helping pay for the Las Vegas trip, in addition to the funds raised at a car wash at 76 gas station at Lone Tree Way and Golf Course Road, are the Antioch Armory, Kal Krishnan Consulting, Antioch Councilman Reggie Moore and BART Board Member Joel Keller. For more information or to help sponsor the Gladiators, call Lloyd at 510228-8065 or 925-206-4760 or e-mail him at petplacecala@yahoo.com.

OBITUARIES

John Aloysius Trumm July 14, 1922-July 30, 2009 Surrounded by family, John, 87, passed away peacefully in his home on July 30 in Concord following a long battle with Parkinson’s. John was the youngest of three sons born to William and Rosalia on July 14, 1922 in Salem, Ore. He was preceded in death by his brother, Urban “Jack.” John led a very full and rewarding life. He proudly served as a first lieutenant in the United States 14th Air Force during World War II under Major General C.L. Chennault with the Flying Tigers Squadron. He received the Distinguished Flying Cross for flying B-25 bombers and

received the Air Medal for flying C-47 transport aircraft “Over the Hump” in China. After serving his country, John received his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Oregon State University. He moved to Concord in 1949 and worked as a Process Engineer at the Avon Petroleum Refinery in Martinez for 35 years. John enjoyed classical music, fishing, camping, flying, family life and worldwide traveling with his wife. John also enjoyed the annual family camping trip to Warner Creek in Lassen National Forest. This tradition included all family members and continues today. After retiring, John spent many hours flying his friends and family in his Cardinal Cessna airplane. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 62 years, Germaine “Geri”; their nine children, Robert (Stephanie), Richard (Janet), Catherine Jenkins, Carol Laird (Timothy), Billy, Mary Anne Johnson (Gilbert), David (Kari), Barbara Barton (Jack), and Michael (Jeannette); 17 grandchildren and one great-grandchild, Lily. John is also survived by his brother, William (Marie). A vigil, visitation and service were held at Ouimet Brothers on Aug. 5. The funeral Mass was held at Queen of All Saints Church in Concord on Aug. 6, followed by interment at Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Lafayette. Memorials may be made to the Parkinson’s Association (800908-2732). We will miss you dearly!

Lenora Ravenna Roehm Lenora Ravenna Roehm, the “Food Lady of East County” and resident of Brentwood since 1961, passed away from this life on July 30 surrounded by her loving and devoted immediate family. Her passing – just weeks short of her 89th birthday – was the result of a massive heart attack. A longtime resident of Brentwood, Lenora, the “Food Lady of East County,” was an unsung heroine: a member and active participant in the Delta Senior Center for decades; past president and district deputy president of The Rebeccas and also a member for 40 plus years; a member of the Byron Methodist Church for 45 years and provider of communion bread for 40 of those years; and Brentwood’s Citizen of the Year in 1990. Lenora organized and administered the Brentwood Brown Bag Food Program; the local Contra Costa County Food Bank and Government Surplus Food program; the Byron Methodist Church Food Pantry; and was personally responsible for the annual Thanksgiving and Christmas food basket programs. But her greatest accomplishment was being a loving mother and friend to her surviving children, Alberta Cates, Vernette Pato, Joyce Clark, George Roehm III and Adah Boone. She was preceded in death by her husband, George Roehm II, and her daughter, Joan Roehm. She is survived by nine grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, seven greatgreat-grandchildren, 23 foster children and a plethora of friends, family, extended family and acquaintances locally as well as worldwide.

Lenora touched the hearts of many as a friend and mentor. She was humble, generous in nature with her time and support, offering a helping hand in every way at her disposal, drawing on every option at hand. She never met a stranger. She was a regular at the Brentwood Café, where she held her own in the daily roundabout of politics and red-light runners; always adding anecdotes of Brentwood’s past. Her wisdom, wit, generosity, friendship and an incredibly positive outlook on life have left an indelible mark on all she touched. A celebration of Lenora’s life was held on Saturday, Aug. 8 at the Byron Methodist Church. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in her honor to a food bank or charity of your choice.


AUGUST 14, 2009 Lynn Dunton Lynn Dunton celebrated Mother’s Day this year with her two sons, David and Bob, both of whom passed away in the last 15 months. The rest of her family – her husband Bill, her daughter Kristin, her other sons Bill and Mike, and all her grandchildren and great grandchildren – are now struggling to cope with their third recent loss. On May 9, surrounded by many of them, Lynn passed peacefully on to the rest of her journey after an incredibly brave battle with cancer. The daughter of Wilfred and Polly Hendrickson, Lynn was born in rural Minnesota on March 24, 1928. She went to the nearest town, Paynesville, to attend Paynesville High. There she met and fell in love with a guy from town named Bill Dunton. At their 1946 graduation, they managed to rearrange the marching order at graduation so they could hold hands during the ceremony. Lynn completed the two-year course required for teaching, received her A.A. degree from St. Cloud State Teachers College, and began a teaching career in a one-room school close to her home. The students were in grades one through six and included her younger sister. As the teacher, she had to teach all of them at each student’s appropriate level. On Jan. 30, 1948, the high school sweethearts eloped. The bride was not yet 20. The groom, attending the University of Minnesota to complete his bachelor’s degree, completed his course work and secured a job for the next school year. He and Lynn moved to Richland, Wash., where Bill began his teaching career. Lynn taught in the grade schools there until the couple’s first son was born, and then continued to work with teens as the director of a teen club in Richland sponsored by the city and General Electric. In September of 1958, the Dunton family – now with a daughter finally joining three sons – moved to Fullerton and found a house on Ash Avenue from which they have never moved. In 1959, they added their native Californian to the family when a fourth son, Bobby, was born. Bill had taken a job with the F.J.U.H.S.D. as a teacher of vocal music. Starting in 1958, he began to build his empire at La Habra High in that department. There was the concert choir, but that was not enough. At heart, Bill wished to be an impresario and put on a really, big show involving hordes of students Scotscapades was born. It needed costumes, scenery, lighting, choreographers along with the dancers, singers and musicians. Lynn quietly took control of the less obvious but very necessary portions of the production, made sure the lighting coordinators didn’t injure themselves or their performers with their elaborate schemes, curtailed the costs and complexity of costumes that mothers and daughters dreamed up, helped the set designers create scenery that enhanced the show and didn’t overwhelm the performers, drew some of the designs for them, and most importantly, dried the tears and consoled the wounded when the producer had not been at his most diplomatic. Lynn became the one the students went to not only for help with their costumes but for advice on their lives and their futures. She listened and heard what they said and what they did not. She enjoyed them immensely and they knew it. At the same time, she taught at the Adult School run by Fullerton Junior College. An artist first and foremost, she taught millinery, crafts, stained glass, design and sketching. She made hats and more hats. She made pots on her wheel in the backyard and let the kids play with a slab of clay from her garbage can when they wanted. She drew constantly, created batiks and made candles. Lynn looked at the world with an artist’s eye, seeing all the colors and angles in the scene, and listened with a musician’s ear, hearing all the voices and instruments it took to make the desired sound. She always knew each small contribution complimented and enhanced the whole and deserved ap-

MILESTONES

preciation and respect. Lynn also found time to complete her bachelor’s degree in art education. After Bill retired, Lynn joined the La Habra Woman’s Club and later the Fullerton Woman’s Club. She soon was a county chairman and eventually became a member of the State Woman’s Club governing group. She also was on the board of the Very Special Arts California Gallery in Santa Ana. Lynn was a writer, actor, singer and artist, but most of all she was a friend and mentor to anyone who sought her support and help. She is survived by her husband Bill, sons Bill and Mike, daughter Kristin, eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, her sisters Betty Crusoe and Annette Warwick (Laurie Bolt, Vicky Miranda and Pamela Munkelt), and her brother Douglas Hendrickson. The Duntons planned to hold a memorial for Lynn in July. Meanwhile the staff and alumni of La Habra High School have started a scholarship in her name and are accepting contributions.

Robert “Bobby” Ortiz Robert “Bobby” Ortiz, 58, passed away on July 22 at his home in Fairfield, Ohio. SP4 Ortiz, United States Army, served his country with honor. He was a member of AMVETS #2, American Legion #138 and the Eagles Lodge #407. Bob was also the lead singer in the Forest Fire Band until his illness. Survivors include two daughters, Evelyn Bonar and Luisa Kinch; two sons, Robert “Bobby” Ortiz and Kurk Tovar; eight grandchildren, Kateland, Karrie, Klowie, Robert Ortiz, Gabrielle, Serenity, Sierra and Thomas Kinch Jr.; mother of his children, Michele (Frederick) Brown; and girlfriend of 15 years, Sharon Graves. He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers and one sister. He is also survived by five sisters, Julie Ortiz Lefler, Jessie Diaz, Connie Guzman and Lupe Murphy, all of Brentwood, Evelyn Ortiz of Antioch, and one brother, Richard Ortiz of Brentwood, plus many nieces and nephews. Funeral and burial arrangements were handled by Colligan Funeral Home in Hamilton, Ohio.

Savoring art, wine and all that jazz Like the cabaret girl banners adorning the city streets, the eighth annual Brentwood Art, Wine & Jazz Festival is now in sight. The two-day civic celebration takes place Saturday, Aug. 29 and Sunday, Aug. 30, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. in City Park in the city’s historic downtown. There is no charge for admission. Special features this year include the Artist’s Garden, showcasing more than 50 juried artists; the Vintner’s Corner, spotlighting seven local vintners, micro-breweries and olive growers; 10 live jazz fusion performances on the main stage, featuring musicians from local schools and the community; and the Food Court, hosted by local restaurants, caterers and nonprofit organizations. Returning this year is the sand sculpture display, Little Clusters Children’s Area; Walk through Time with the Historical Society; Artist of the Year Award; Blind Taste Test Booth; Wall of Art, displaying 1,500 hand-

drawn works of art by local students; Auction on the Lawn; and The Crush, a grape stomping competition. New this year is the Masters of the Arts competition between local chefs, winemakers, florists, musicians and artists, chalk-drawn sidewalk art surrounding the entire park and Your Place at the Easel, where guests can stop and paint like they did when they were kids. Opening ceremonies include a proclamation by Mayor Bob Taylor followed by the National Anthem, sung by Gene Clare. Artist of the Year Bill Weber will receive his award at 10:15 a.m. and join the Wall of Art students for a photo shoot in front of the main stage. The sounds of jazz will fill the air throughout both days, including Dixieland on Sunday morning. The Brentwood Rotary will fire up the grill at 8:30 a.m. on both days, making its famous pancakes for guests arriving early. Handicapped parking is available surrounding the park, and an area is reserved for shuttle bus drop-offs. Guests can rent a chair for the day or bring a blanket to find a place on the lawn. No outside alcohol is allowed and guests desiring to purchase an alcoholic beverage must buy a wrist band after showing proper identification. One-day wrist bands cost $7; $11 for both days. One souvenir wine or beer glass is given out with the one-day wrist band

The food court will serve tri-tip, chicken and hot-links sandwiches and the festival’s famous barbecued oysters. The snack attack pack will include fruit, cheese, crackers and cookies. Other local businesses will be serving a variety of foods and treats for festival guests. Unlike at other festivals, the Artist’s Garden takes guests through a gardenlike pathway, presenting oil, watercolor and ceramic artists, jewelers, sculptors and photographers. Art docents will provide a tour of the garden upon request, and guests can cast their ballot

for their favorite artist. The award ceremony is held on the main stage at 5 p.m. Saturday. In addition to the souvenir glass, guests will be given buttons (in limited quantities) inscribed with “Official Wine Snob,” “Official Grape Crusher” and “I found my place at the Easel.” The first 500 guests to visit the John Muir Health booth on Sunday will receive a white skimmer hat to be worn during the aerial shot of the park at 4:30 p.m. All proceeds from the event benefit the Brentwood Art Society for its support of art and cultural art programs in the city.

Comedy night cancer fundraising event set producing the comedy event in 2000, soon after Hartmann was diagnosed with latestage ovarian cancer. Last year, Hartmann lost her battle with cancer at age 48, but Early remains determined to continue with the popular fundraiser. “Stacey’s voice has not been silenced, and I will help to keep her voice for ovarian cancer awareness alive,” said Early. The Lesher Center for the Arts is located at 1601 Civic Drive in Walnut Creek. Reserved seating for the event is $30. Tickets are now on sale at www.dlrca.org, or by calling 925-943-SHOW. For additional information on the show or the NOCC, call 925-383-3072, visit www.comedybenefit.org or e-mail Early at charleen@ecis.com.

Carolers urge early planning In what is probably the first Yuletiderelated item you’ve seen this year, the Liberty High School Choral Department is asking folks to get ready for the 20th season of the enormously popular Rent-A-Carol program. “Every year we have the holiday singers known as the ‘Rent-A-Carolers,’ and every year we book up our gigs really fast,” said Eric Promani, publicity manager for the LHS Choir Club. To make sure everyone has a chance to be visited by the group, they’re offering an early heads-up. For a donation of $100, select members

of the LHS choir will sing some of the most treasured Christmas carols at any holiday gathering. Dressed in Victorian costumes, the Rent-A-Carolers will joyfully spread the spirit of the holiday season via their sensational sound and traditional carols. To spread the holiday spirit together with these joyous songs, contact Liberty Choral Director Sue Stuart at 634-3411 and arrange a date. “From all the carolers at Liberty,” said Eric, “Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays – even in August!”
