Local artist thinks globally by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

To the untrained eye, Miguel Flores’ latest artwork is a scene depicting the disastrous situation in Haiti. But to Flores, a Brentwood resident of 22 years, it’s a sign of hope. The lifelong artist has conceived a strategy that could help save Haitians, whose land was decimated in January by a 7.0-magnitude earthquake near the capital city of Port-au-Prince. Flores, 75, has used his talent to create a diorama that illustrates how unused shipping containers could be turned into stable houses for those whose houses were destroyed by the earthquake. He said the shipping containers would provide reliable shelter for Haitian families, but so far Flores hasn’t been able to connect with someone who could turn his dream into reality. “What do these people really need?” Flores said of the thought process that sparked the diorama. “I realized that if you talk to people about things, they just don’t get it. If you draw a picture of these things, they just don’t get it. … So I got this idea.” Flores became interested in art as a child, molding things out of clay and later moving on to paint-

Cops clear incident near elementary A man seen hanging around Marsh Creek School last week was found to be the grandfather of a student and the incident has been closed. Lt. Doug Silva said authorities located the man and interviewed him following reports that he had been parked outside the school for 30 minutes before driving off in a white truck. Silva said the incident is not related to two previous reports of suspicious men approaching children at the Sunset Athletic Complex in recent weeks. “This was not related to those incidents, and it’s completely unfounded,” Silva said. Silva said the BPD and neighboring agencies have received numerous reports in the wake of the Sunset Park incidents, but “None of them have panned out.” In the previous incidents, children reported a man they did not know approaching them and starting conversations. On Sept. 11, a 12-year-old girl was told her soccer game had been cancelled that her mother had said the girl should go with him. Then on Sept. 18, two boys between 9 and 11 said a man had approached them in a restroom and asked where their mothers were. No children were harmed in either of the cases, which Silva said are both still being investigated. Anyone with information on the two cases should call Silva at 925-809-7712.

“The Uncensored Message that My Wife Asked Me Not to Write…” Dear friend, Well, at first, my wife asked me not to write this. We had a big discussion about it. Finally, she understood what I was trying to do, and actually helped me write this letter to you. Here’s the thing. In my office, most of the people that come in to see me tell me they’ve “tried everything.” They’ve had “every” test, wound up with huge medical bills, and are still no better off. Often, they’ve been subjected to medications that have only served to temporarily mask symptoms. That’s not what most people are looking for. Health, or the lack of it, very often has simple causes, and very reasonable corrections. That’s what I’m going to tell you about. But, before I tell you more, let me tell you something about me… I remember it like it was yesterday. I’m the “athletic type” and like most young guys, I think that nothing can go wrong. That’s when I’m hit with a dose of reality. I’m playing basketball when it happens. As I’m going for a rebound, I get pushed. I land hard on my lower back and feel a ‘pop’. But, there’s more… I’m in so much pain that I can barely move. I go to see my medical doctor, but all he can do is give me drugs for the pain. But, that doesn’t help. Three weeks later I’m still in pain. I’m frustrated and scared that I may never play sports again. Now, listen to this… A friend of mine convinces me to give his doctor a try. This new doctor does an exam, takes some films, and then ‘adjusts’ my spine. The adjustment doesn’t hurt, it actually feels good. I get relief, and within a

week, I feel much better! Oh, did I mention that this doctor is a chiropractor? Chiropractic works so well for me, and I’m so impressed with the other ‘miracles’ I see in his office, that I eventually go to chiropractic school myself. And that’s how it happened! Back to what my wife (at first) didn’t want me to write. It’s that chiropractic is one of the biggest “secrets” in health care. Few people (relatively, only 10% have been to a chiropractor) know about it. And, many of the rest could be helped, if they only knew the true story. So, I often feel like shouting it from the mountaintop! Is that “professional?” Well, maybe it is, or maybe not. But, I’ve decided people should know. For the last eleven years, people from Brentwood and the surrounding area have come to see me with their back problems. They also come to me with their: • Headaches • Migraines • Chronic pain • Neck pain • Shoulder/arm pain • Whiplash from car accidents • Carpal tunnel syndrome • Hip pain • Elbow pain • Numbness in limbs • Athletic injuries just to name a few… Here’s what some of your neighbors had to say: “During my pregnancy, I suffered from low back pain and sciatica. Dr. Jardin helped me become pain free!” (Kim M.)

“I had neck pain, tingling and numbness in my arms and hands. Thanks to Dr. Jardin, the pain is gone. I feel great!” (Diane W.) “I suffered with constant TMJ pain and headaches with dizziness. I spent over 25 years trying different things to help and Dr. Jardin’s adjustments have been the most effective!” (Patti W.)

Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I can’t really take the credit. The truth is that I’ve never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure, and the body responds by healing itself. Of course, all people respond differently to care, but we get terrific results. It’s as simple as that! Exciting Offer – Look, I know you’re smart. You want to get to the cause of your problem, and not just cover it up with drugs. When you are one of the first 20 people to call and schedule a new patient exam (by October 1, 2010) you’ll receive that entire exam for $37. That’s with consultation, exam, any necessary x-rays, full report of my findings….the whole ball of wax, and there’s no hidden fees. But, call right away because we expect to be flooded with calls as this exam normally costs $249. Again, there’s only 20 of these slots, so don’t miss out (by law, this offer excludes Medicare/Medicaid beneficiaries).

Great care at a great fee…Please, I hope that there’s no misunderstanding about quality of care just because I have a lower exam fee. You’ll get great care at a great fee. My qualifications…I’m a graduate of Western States Chiropractic. I’ve been entrusted to take care of tiny babies to entire families. For the past eleven years, I’ve been taking care of your neighbors in Brentwood. I just have that low exam fee to help more people who need care. My assistants are Morgan and Esmeralda, and they are both really great people. Our office is both friendly and warm and we try our best to make you feel at home. We have a wonderful service, at an exceptional fee. Our office is called JARDIN FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC and it’s at 7351-A Brentwood Boulevard (we are across the parking lot from McDonald’s, next to the Dollar Store). Our phone number is 925-516-5813. Call Morgan, Esmeralda, or me today for an appointment. We can help you. Thank you and God Bless. -Dan Jardin, D.C. P.S. When accompanied by the first, I am also offering the second family member this same examination for only $27. P.P.S. Can you imagine not having to wait at a doctor’s office? Well, your time is as valuable as mine. That’s why we have a no-wait policy. You will be seen within minutes of your appointment. P.P.P.S. Of course, all people respond differently to care. -Advertisement

Mystery from page 5A House. The card bears no message on the back and no postal marks. Jensen has good reason to be especially curious about this image. She is a member of the John Marsh Historical Trust, a nonprofit organization collecting funds to restore the Marsh House to its original condition in hopes of obtaining historical-park status from the state of California. “There are several points of interest in this card,” said Jensen. “First, what year was the photograph taken? We know the image was taken after the year of the ‘great earthquake’ (of 1906), as the Romanesque, crenellated top of the tower fell and a wooden tower later replaced the original stone. But what year specifically?” Jensen also wants to know about the people in the photograph. Although Marsh never lived in the house, his family did. Local ranchers eventually lived in the house while Marsh’s son Charles decided what to do with the property, so Jensen wants to know if the people in the photograph could be someone’s grandparents posing for the photo. Finally, Jensen wants to know if anyone can identify the man behind the camera at the front door. She suggested that some early California photographic historians or enthusiasts might recognize him. The first person who provides substantial information about the individuals in the photograph, including the photographer, will win two tickets to the John Marsh Historic Trust Gala on Sunday, Oct. 17. The prize is valued at $150. To share information about this historic photo postcard, e-mail Jensen at

NEVER KNOW UNTIL YOU ASK… I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say, “Yeah, I’m upside-down in my home. But it’s just my second mortgage. I’d be OK if that just went away…” Of course, this sounds like wishful thinking, but then again, maybe not. First, let me recap my basic advice for someone who is in trouble on their mortgage. First, try to stay and pay if you can and if it makes sense (cut back expenses, earn more income, etc.). Second, apply for a loan modification and/or FHA short refi (if you qualify). If none of those work and foreclosure looks imminent, consider doing a short sale. Way down my list of options would be foreclosure, deed-in-lieu of foreclosure and bankruptcy. But if you have a second mortgage on your home, there is another strategy that you can employ at almost any point in the above list. Call them up and see if they’d be willing to settle with you. This means you give them a lump sum of money in exchange for them releasing you from obligation on the note, and they remove the lien (the deed of trust). I’ve recommended this to several clients recently and they are having

varied amounts of success with it. I’ve seen them approve settlements for anywhere from 10-90% of the balance. It all depends on the borrower’s financial situation (they will ask you for a complete set of your financials), and how close to foreclosure you are. Most 2nd mortgages get absolutely nothing after a foreclosure, and only $2,000 to $5,000 in a short sale, so sometimes they jump at the chance to settle! Obviously this strategy won’t be for everyone because you will need to be able to come up with the funds. However, one lender was willing to give the borrower up to 6 MONTHS to come up with the money. But if you are in a situation where your 2nd mortgage is your main problem, and you can get your hands on a lump of money, it’s worth a shot! [This may negatively impact your credit and/or incur a tax liability, so seek expert advice first.] If you have questions on this or any other real estate topic, call me at (925) 240-MOVE (6683).

A site visit and status update on the proposed Mariposa Energy Project will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 6 at the Byron Bethany Irrigation District in Byron. The site visit and follow-up meeting is open to the public. The Mariposa power plant site is located in Alameda County southeast of the intersection of Bruns and Kelso Road, approximately six miles south of Byron and 2.5 miles from the Byron Airport.

His personal favorite is a bronze sculpture of Venus and Adonis – art that spoke to him, offering guidance throughout the creative process. But now, Flores wants to be productive in other ways and contribute to the world. “As long as I’m producing, I feel like I’m 18 years old,” he said. “I don’t want anything or anyone to take that away from me, but old age does that; immaturity or longevity does that. … All human beings are

The proposed facility is situated on a 10-acre portion of a 158-acre parcel of land south of the PG&E Bethany Compressor Station and Kelso Substation. Its nominal capacity would be 200 megawatts. According to the California Energy Commission website, the project would be a simple-cycle generating facility consisting of four GE LM6000 PC-Sprint natural-gasfired combustion turbine generators plus associated equipment. Linear facilities would include a new 580foot natural gas pipeline and a new 1.8-mile water connection with the

Byron Bethany Irrigation District. The proposed project is opposed by some area residents and local pilots, who believe that given its proximity to the Byron Airport, the plant’s plumes would pose a danger to general aviation as well as local parachuting and gliding operations. The site visit will begin at 2:30 p.m. and depart from the Byron Bethany Irrigation District, 7995 Bruns Road. The meeting will start at 4 p.m. back at the irrigation district.

artists, only they don’t know it.” Building off research from Alex Steffen, a sustainability expert, as well as “The Book of Bamboo” by David Farrelly, plus Trevor Field of PlayPumps International, Flores believes he has the answer for Haiti. In addition to the shipping-container housing, just one facet of his plan, Flores said bamboo could be used to help re-forest the area. He was also inspired by Field’s work with PlayPumps International, which builds merry-go-rounds that help

pump clean water from underground into a large tank. Flores said schools could get involved by raising money to sponsor a shelter, fostering a local and grassroots connection to an international solution: “People have to have some place to live, and these containers would be great things to live in. Whatever it is, it’s in the realm of possibility, rather than trying to build cinder block houses. … These things are relatively the most safe place you can live in.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Locals honored for academic excellence Brentwood’s Geoffrey and Isabela Angus were recently honored at a statewide awards ceremony for gifted children held by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY). Isabela, a seventh-grader at Adams Middle School, and Geoffrey, a freshman at Heritage High School, were invited to the awards ceremony based on their exceptional performances on a rigorous, above-grade-level test given to second- through eighth-grade Talent Search participants. Seventh- and eighth-graders took the SAT or ACT, the same tests used for college admissions. Second- through sixth-graders took the SCAT, an above-level test scaled for younger students. The results of these tests give families a better idea of a child’s academic talents, especially compared to the thousands of other academically talented students in the Talent Search. Students can also earn recognition at CTY’s awards ceremonies, and their test scores can qualify them for CTY’s summer programs and distance education courses. During the 2009-10 academic year, more than 53,000 students from 21

states and the District of Columbia participated in the Talent Search offered through CTY, the nation’s oldest and most extensive academic talent search, which offers educational programming for students with exceptionally high academic ability. About 30 percent of the second- and sixth-graders who tested this winter earned an invitation to CTY’s Awards Ceremony, and about 25 percent of the seventh- and eighthgrade testers earned an invitation. “With our annual award ceremonies, we’re committed to giving these exceptional young people a stage on which to recognize their academic achievements, just as we celebrate achievements in athletics or the performing arts,” said CTY Executive Director Lea Ybarra. “Their performance places them in the top tier of students taking these tests, and they certainly deserve acclaim.” Since 1979, CTY has sought the most academically able elementary and middle school students each year and encouraged their enrollment in CTY’s annual Talent Search, currently in progress. Students enrolled in the Talent Search go on to test through the fall and spring.

EDUCATION

Federal dollars to stimulate schools by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer California’s depleted education coffers are getting a $1.2 billion dollar infusion thanks to a federal education jobs bill designed to save jobs and classroom programs. “In California, 16,500 teaching positions could be saved or created by approval of this urgently needed package,” wrote State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell in a recent press release. “This education relief package provides an urgently needed Marshall Plan airlift for our schools.” House bill H.R. 1586, approved by U.S. Senate, authorizes $10 billion in education funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The one-time funds were created specifically for the rehiring or retention of employees and/or educational services and programs. In East County, school districts across the board are working out the details as to how they will utilize the money, which is expected to be issued within the next 30 days.

Ken Jacopetti, Byron union school superintendent, hasn’t decided how to use the district’s nearly $300,000 bump, but does favor a three-pronged approach to spending it. “Part of the monies we’ll use at the middle school (Excelsior), where we brought back a teacher this year,” he said. “And we’re currently looking at building back services that directly affect the students, such as a half-time music program at the middle school and possibly bringing back some of the counselors we had to let go. “Since we can utilize it over the next two years, we’re looking at our deficit spending as well and seeing where the funds can best be used. But we’re happy to have it; anything at this point helps.” Brentwood Union School District Superintendent Merrill Grant agrees. His district will be receiving approximately $1.5 million in federal funding, and for Grant, the one-time gift provides his district an opportunity to look toward the future. “What this (funding) allows us to do is look at our multi-year budget challenges

and allow us to further mitigate into the future. I think for us, it’s about keeping class size below 30 students and could mean that anywhere between 20 and 30 jobs will not be reduced. I know some folks are using it (the dollars) right now, but for us it’s about looking ahead.” The Oakley Union School District will be implementing its $836,000 immediately. After a couple of years of cutbacks, layoffs and voluntary furlough days, Superintendent Rick Rogers is looking first off to reward his staff with a 1 percent, one-time pay increase for onsite personnel. “As a district, we have struggled over the last two years, and teachers and staff have continuously rallied round the flag and made the district function and move forward with what is best for the kids,” said Rogers. “It’s wonderful to be able to give this. We know it’s not much, but at least we can do something to thank them for their loyalty and their professionalism.” Rogers also plans to bring back to one of the district sites a custodian, a site-technol-

ogy person, a full-time elementary principal and seven early-literacy paraprofessionals. The teachers union will vote on the 1 percent increase shortly after the fall break, and the other items will be brought to the school board at their next scheduled meeting this month. Other East County districts will also be receiving and viewing their funding dollars. The Liberty Union High School District is slated for $1,507,560 in federal funding, the Knightsen Elementary School District will receive $96,840, and the Antioch Unified School District – one of the largest in the county – will funnel $3,551,031 into their staff and programs. Regardless of the amount of the check each district receives, all agree that the timing of the gift is welcome. “It’s a nice shot in the arm, no question,” said Grant. “Anything we get right now is appreciated. We are all looking to turn the corner and not have our budgets continually reduced. And this will certainly help.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Literacy event draws big crowd Efforts to instill the importance of reading went over the top recently when more than 300 people turned out for a Liberty Adult Education Open House celebrating Adult Education and Family Literacy Week. The event highlighted adult education and family literacy programs as keys to the success and well-being of those who strive to improve their education and that of their children. More than 650 books donated by Barnes & Noble and Migrant Education were given away. The audience heard from Liberty Adult Education graduates Nyccol Dupree and Suzanne McWhorter about how much the program has meant to them. A trio of guest readers – Oakley Mayor Pat Anderson, NFL Teacher of the Year and Freedom High School teacher Frank Beede, and Brentwood Citizen of the Year Rick Lemyre – shared favorite stories and poems. The school also received donations totaling $2,300

from the service groups Soroptimist of East Contra Costa County and Comite Civico Patriotico. “Due to current budget cuts in adult education, we now out of necessity have to charge for Adult Basic Education, GED, and English as a Second Language classes, which we never charged for in the past,” said Liberty Union High School District Coordinator of Adult Education Debbie Norgaard. “These are the programs that emphasize basic skills such as reading, writing and math, prepare adult learners to take GED tests and assist non-native speakers in gaining English proficiency. These dollars will allow students who cannot afford the new fees to receive their necessary education to lead productive and self-sufficient lives.” Participants at the event also included Migrant Education, Project Second Chance, Brentwood Community Library, Contra Costa Child Care Council, Familias Unidas/Families

Can I Just Walk Away? Foreclosure Sales and Bankruptcy by Joan Grimes, Esq. When a person is behind on a home loan, it is very common to think a foreclosure sale will solve all their problems with regards to the home. However, all too often, a foreclosure sale is still followed by a bankruptcy because there is either another loan on the property which starts collecting on its loan or there are taxes as a result of the foreclosure sale which the borrower was unaware. In many cases, a bankruptcy filing prior to the foreclosure sale would have discharged the liability on any additional loans on the property, avoided the tax liability completely and allowed the person to stay in the property several additional months. Additionally, a foreclosure sale prior to a bankruptcy filing may cause a person not to qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy leaving a person in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy for 3-5 years. What should a person consider prior to allowing a property to be sold at a foreclosure sale? First, prior to allowing a property to be sold through a foreclosure sale, (1) determine the affect of the foreclosure sale on your credit, (2) is there any personal liability on a lien after the foreclosure sale which could be discharged in a bankruptcy filing and (3) is there any tax liability which could be discharged through a bankruptcy filing prior to the foreclosure sale. Second, could a Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing avoid a junior lien on your principal residence which would have allowed you to retain the real property? Under the Bankruptcy law, a junior lien on a person’s principal residence which does not attach to equity in the real property, can be avoid through a Chapter 13 Plan. For example, if the current fair market value of a principal residence is $250,000 and the balance on the first deed of trust is $300,000, then a junior lien could be avoided through the Chapter 13 Plan.

A Chapter 13 also allows a person to cure a default on a home loan over time which may be all that is necessary to avoid a foreclosure sale. Third, are there any other reasons that a bankruptcy filing may be appropriate prior to a foreclosure sale. The most common reason is that there is significant unsecured debt which can be discharged in the bankruptcy and a bankruptcy filing prior to a foreclosure sale will allow a person to file a Chapter 7 instead of being required to enter into a Chapter 13 repayment plan. In addition, a bankruptcy filing will allow a person to remain in the property additional time. In conclusion, a foreclosure sale of real property without a bankruptcy filing may be the right decision. However, a foreclosure sale will have serious consequences which should be analyzed by a bankruptcy or real estate attorney prior to the foreclosure sale. This is a complicated area of the law, but a bankruptcy or real estate attorney should be able to make to an analysis of your particular situation fairly quickly. In addition, many bankruptcy attorneys will do a free initial consultation which will allow you to decide if a foreclosure sale without first a bankruptcy is the right decision.

Marsh Creek gets clean sweep East County residents came out in full force Saturday to clean up local waterways during the Marsh Creek Cleanup and the Antioch Coastal Cleanup events, as part of California Coastal Commission’s Coastal Cleanup Day. Hundreds of volunteers came out to support the events and help clean up their cities by picking up trash and beautifying their neighborhoods. The Friends of Marsh Creek Watershed marshaled more than 500 volunteers to clean up Marsh Creek at nine sites along 14 miles of the waterway that runs through Oakley and Brentwood. The volunteers – residents of Brentwood, Oakley and Antioch as well as more far-flung Vacaville, Tracy, Pleasanton and Walnut Creek – collected more than six tons of garbage from the trails, creek and creek banks. Volunteers logged specific items for the California Coastal Commission’s data records, including 25 shopping carts, 636 plastic beverage bottles, 1,109 food wrappers, 914 cigarette filters, 31 tires, 49 condoms, 96 clothing items, 140 toys and three bicycles. Executive Director of Friends of Marsh Creek Watershed Diane Burgis said the strangest things found this year included a raccoon hat, handcuffs, a stereo and a computer monitor. “The amount of garbage we pick up is amazing,” said Burgis. “I’m not sure

New life from page 3A pesticide that has been banned in California,” said Roa. “But we’ll take just about everything else.” But when residents do show up with such items, Lowrey sees it as an occasion to teach. “If someone has taken the time to come out here and we can’t re-use it, we’ll thank them for coming out, accept the item and then recycle or dispose of it as we need to,” said Lowrey. “And then it becomes a gentle education; an opportunity to show what can be used and recycled – and what can’t.” And so far, the lessons are sticking. DDSD has seen a steady increase in customers to the re-use room, including cities that have learned of the free program and come in to stock up on paint to cover graffiti and tagging. “When you’re covering graffiti, you don’t care what color the paint is,” said Lowrey. “And providing (the paint) is a public service at no cost to the community. “Those kinds of things are what we strive to do: showing people that every little thing they do has an impact; that they can be part of the solution to pollution in East County. Everyone wants to live in a safe community, and this is just one way we can help.” The Delta Diablo Sanitary District is located at 2550 Pittsburg-Antioch Highway in Pittsburg, across the street from the Goodwill Store.

Pick someone else Editor: When voting in the local election in November, please do not consider voting for Martha Parsons or Reggie Moore for Antioch City Council. These two individuals have not done a great job at keeping our city safe. They voted against Super Walmart coming into town even though the community wanted it. They also proposed a halfpercent tax increase and opposed a property tax increase that would help sustain the Antioch PD. We have a lot of crime in this city, and we cannot go with less patrol out on the streets. There is only so much as citizens we can do. Do Martha and Reggie wait to see what the other is going to vote for and then make their decision together? From what I have heard, it doesn’t seem like they have a mind of their own. There are three other candidates up for election and I would suggest picking two of them to replace Reggie and Martha. If you don’t like how the city is running right now, my best suggestion is get two new bodies into Antioch City Council. Traci Cross Antioch

Hospitable re-opening of Islamic center Editor: The arson burning in 2007 of the old Islamic Center on 18th Street in Antioch was a moment of shame. A peace walk that followed soon thereafter organized by the Contra Costa Interfaith Council and Father Tom Bonacci of Interfaith Peace Project forged an era of renewed determination against ignorance, hatred and violence. Within 19 months, the new Islamic Center of the East Bay rose like a phoenix, symbolic not of vengeance or bitterness but of forgiveness and understanding. On Sept. 26, 2010, an open house

Guests were treated to chai tea, delicious snacks and desserts. We learned about the history and religious practice of Islam, and observed a midafternoon prayer led by Abdul Rahman. I have basic knowledge of Islam, such as facing Mecca when in prayer. Nevertheless, I was really fascinated by the angled, wide-striped carpeting of the prayer room that served as directional guide; and even more awed to learn that some kneeling carpets actually come with compasses.

Say No ‘Moore’ Editor: Four years ago, I voted for Councilman Reggie Moore. I was proud to be part of the process that elected the first African-American member to the City Council. Much to my regret, Mr. Moore has, over the past four years, systematically betrayed the trust of the residents of Antioch to cater to his special interest in order to promote himself to the fringe elements of the liberal left. Mr. Moore has categorically expressed his sympathies to the criminal elements. In 2009, at the Quality of Life Forum, Mr. Moore shook me to the core by siding with Lovell Mixon, a convicted rapist who murdered four Oakland police officers – two of them shot in cold blood, execution style, as they lay wounded on the ground. Then, without consent of the City Council, Mr. Moore took it upon himself to apologize to the juvenile delinquents who tried to assault and forcibly remove the weapons of Antioch Police Officers during the Gas City Riot. Moreover, Mr. Moore is the only City Council member to vote against the teen curfew ordinance. Financially, Mr. Moore’s record is just as dismal. As the economic crisis threatened to paralyze the city, and we are contemplating the need to lay off police officers, Mr. Moore tried to pressure the city into providing $40,000 to a special-interest group to host a Halloween Carnival. On the Walmart issue, Mr. Moore consistently sided with UFCW in trying to deny Antioch residents the choice of cheaper groceries, despite being advised to the contrary by staff and the City Attorney’s office. Lastly, as one reads about the frivolous and abusive lawsuits against the city

and the APD’s CAT team by criminals who wanted to hide behind the race card, which is tumbling down one after the other like a row of dominoes. Mr. Moore is the only council member who wanted to push for a settlement instead of letting the facts come out in court to exonerate the city and its police officers.

Tighten that belt, CornFest Editor: The article printed in the Sept. 24 paper regarding “weak CornFest” provoked a mixture of feelings ranging from disappointment to anger. The fact that nonprofit organizations will not “share” in the bounty despite all of the ridiculously uncomfortable situations presented to the volunteers this year (sweltering heat for three to four days, booths on hot asphalt rather than a grassy, tree-lined park and a huge dip in revenue) deserves a hard look at exactly how this happened. If the economic situation alone accounted for the nonprofits receiving “zilch,” that would be one thing. However, asking volunteers to put up with the above inconveniences merely to cover the expanding expenditures of the Chamber is unacceptable. Merchants, business owners and residents are tightening belts and nonprofits have depended on the CornFest, which for years has been first in line for support. I have been a supported of the CornFest since its inception, either as a volunteer or booth space renter. I believe the Chamber needs to reset its priorities and pull in its belt. Katherine Van Hatten Brentwood

Mailer is misleading Editor: I opened my mail today to find a mailer sent out by a local resident who is endorsing candidate Jonathan Silver in the upcoming CSD election. Although I do support the rights of Mr. Richardson to support any candidate he chooses and to send out mailers showing his support for those candidates, I do take exception to his giving the appearance that the candidate in

question is also supported by me. I take exception to the statement “He will help Mark Simon and Ray Tetreault make a difference.” Ray Tetreault and I make up 40 percent of the Community Services District Board. I know that I speak for Ray as well as myself when I say that we are proud to represent the residents of Discovery Bay in a group effort of five directors with the common goal of serving our community to the best of our ability. It bothers me that Mr. Richardson is using a mailer to give the voters the impression that Ray and I are endorsing his candidate, when neither of us has given that endorsement. If Mr. Silver is the right candidate for the job, the voters will make that decision on Election Day based on his qualifications. I would appreciate it if in the future, groups wanting to send out mailers that endorse a particular candidate would contact me first before adding me to their endorsement list. As of this date, I have endorsed two candidates for the Discovery Bay Community Services District Board. Those candidates are current board member Brian Dawson and candidate Walter MacVittie. I wish all candidates running for the CSD board the best of luck in the upcoming election and I look forward to serving with the three elected candidates in 2011. Mark Simon Discovery Bay

Steele for Discovery Bay CSD Editor: My name is Chris Steele and I am asking for your support to join the Discovery Bay CSD Board. I am running to provide leadership on issues key to our town’s success. We must always maintain fiscal discipline, never engaging in deficit spending. Further, our reserves should be increased, thereby protecting us from future shortfalls. Both water and sewer rates must be kept affordable for all residents. Additionally, as a responsible agency, we must plan for future expansions while ensuring that drinking water quality is protected and sewage treatment is handled appropriately. Professional maintenance of our landscaping will help enhance our community while protecting property values. As we expand the quantity and quality of our parks, care must be taken to keep them in top shape. While all the above requires funding, we have the resources to get the job done.

Letters from page 16A what I hope to bring to the CSD. Professionally, I have been a local businessman for many years. In 2009, it was my pleasure to serve as CEO/President of the Discovery Bay Chamber of Commerce. Active in numerous community associations, I have always tried to empower others while carefully listening to the concerns and innovative ideas of everyone. With a Bachelor of Science degree in Automated Manufacturing Engineering, my work has included involvement with firms such as Cisco, Sony, Solectron and Apple. A Discovery Bay resident since 1995, I met my wife Amy here and both our children attend Discovery Bay Elementary School. We are fully committed to this community. Should I have the honor to serve, you have my word that I’ll undertake my role with hard work, enthusiasm and integrity. Thank you for your consideration. Chris Steele Discovery Bay

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

It’s MGIC Below is a previous article based on the Federal Housing Administration’s (FHA) recent increase in monthly mortgage insurance. Private mortgage insurance now makes even more sense for those who qualify… Okay, not David Copperfield type magic but in the “Tri City” sales area (Antioch, Brentwood, and Oakley) inventory sure is disappearing. In March and April of 2009 alone over 850 homes were sold between the three cities, compared to only 516 homes for March and April of this year. What this has created is a substantial increase in the actual sales price based on the substantial lack of actual inventory; a 16.7% increase in March, and an 8.7% jump in April. The amount of potential buyers has increased, while the amount of inventory has decreased…not magic, statistics. Statistically speaking, the private mortgage insurance company MGIC has noticed the median increase in sales price, and adjusted their guidelines accordingly. If you are an FHA buyer, and you have a credit score above 680, you’ll want to hear this: Effective May 1, 2010 MGIC is moving seven California regions up from their Tier 2 “risk level” to their Tier 1 “risk level”. This HUGE change in guidelines will allow would be buyers with a 680 score, versus the previous Tier 2 score of 720 many positives; they can purchase a home using 95% conventional financing, versus 96.5% FHA financing; there is no upfront mortgage insurance premium (MIP) that only in-

creases your loan amount, and debt, from the start; buyers are able to take advantage of any home improvements or appreciation as most lenders allow for a new appraisal to cancel MGIC’s mortgage insurance, versus FHA where you either need to refinance or wait five years to remove the mortgage insurance; a substantial overall savings in both three and five year periods. Assuming a purchase price of $250,000, and an interest rate of 5.00%, MGIC’s private mortgage insurance costs over a three year period would be $3,308, versus FHA at $8,438. Again, there is no upfront MIP to deal with and the actual coverage rates are lower than those of FHA. Now that’s truly MGIC! With the spring and summer real estate markets right around the corner it is important to arm yourself with as much information as possible. The beginning of this article touched on the dramatically low inventory our market has to offer, and if you are an FHA buyer continually being turned down because of either cash, or conventional offers, it might be time to rethink your approach. Now that private mortgage insurance is available at 95% with a 680 FICO score, if you’re able, you should magically convert yourself into a conventional buyer! If you have any real estate lending related questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to write me at tfreymortgages@yahoo. com or call me directly on my cell phone, (925) 726-1444. – Advertisement

ECC Bank supports Senior CrimeStoppers ECC Bank is participating in the nationally recognized Senior Crimestoppers program through a CRA investment in the Senior Housing Crime Prevention Foundation. Bank representatives launched the program this week with a charter presentation to Lone Tree Convalescent Hospital. The Foundation’s mission is to

The bank’s investment allows the Senior Crimestoppers program to provide services to help provide a crimefree environment to the residents in the facility. The Senior Crimestoppers program is a coordinated group of services

designed to reduce and/or prevent the occurrence of crimes in long-term care facilities and senior housing communities. The program has reduced crimes against seniors approximately 93 percent since 1995. “We have always been committed to helping improve the communities where we do business,” said ECC Bank Chief

Executive Officer William R. Trezza. “We appreciate the contributions senior citizens make in the community, and Senior Crimestoppers works to keep our seniors safe. It’s a program we are happy and proud to be a part of.” For more information about the Senior Crimestoppers program, visit www.seniorcrimestoppers.org.

The entry monument on Second Street, right, will sit on a tree-lined median designed to prevent jaywalking by students. The new Art Gonzales Memorial Fountain, above, will provide a relaxing pedestrian area with splashing water.

Streetscape from page 1A will be limited to one-way traffic to allow vehicles and limited parking in all areas at all times during construction. Sidewalks will be poured in phases to provide customers continued access to stores and restaurants. Some work will be done at night, Reed said, to further lessen the impact on traffic, businesses and the high school. Work will stop at 3:30 p.m. each Friday to allow for construction-free weekends of shopping and dining. In addition to the wider sidewalks, highlights of the streetscape plan include: The Art Gonzales Memorial Fountain. Made of black, polished concrete embedded with colorful bits of stone and glass, the fountain will resemble a half-sphere with a sheet of water cascading over the top and down its sides. The top will be inscribed with Brentwood’s “Heritage, Vision, Opportunity” motto arranged in

“I knew it had not been posted when a question came up on the agenda by someone who asked where the announcement of the application had been posted,” said Enea. “And what we discovered was that the clerk’s office had failed to actually post it in the required places, so the process is essentially starting over … referring it to the Public Protection Committee may serve a few purposes.” The re-opening of the application process for the seat has attracted at least three other interested parties. Vickey Rinehart, retired superintendent of the Knightsen Elementary School District, plans to submit an application to the cemetery board as well. Rinehart missed the previous deadline for applying and said she looks forward to another opportunity to apply. “I think it is wonderful that they have

a spiral pattern in stainless steel letters. Benches will provide seating next to the fountain, and a 3-D silhouette of Mount Diablo will keep visitors safe from traffic on First Street and feature bubbling water to enhance the ambience. Second Street median. Second Street in front of Liberty High School will feature a palm-tree-lined median and wrought-iron fence, a remedy to the current safety problem posed by jaywalking high schoolers. Traffic signals will be added at Maple and Pine streets, and left turns into and out of the school will be eliminated. Entry monuments. On Oak Street at Diablo Way (near La Costa restaurant), a representation of Mount Diablo and its foothills will stretch across Oak Street. Its sides will include a metal locator map identifying significant buildings in the downtown area, and decorative panels will present bits of Brentwood’s heritage – with the help of local residents.

The city is asking residents to contribute small pieces of hardware, perhaps hinges, padlocks or skeleton keys to the collage. “It will really bring the project close to home, and give it a real human feel,” said Reed. The panels are likely to be castings, but the original artwork will be on display in the new community center. Items used can’t be returned, he noted, but the history of the objects could be part of the community center display, and unused items will be returned. On Second Street at Brentwood Boulevard, the entry monument will consist of a low wall bearing the words “Downtown Brentwood.” It will also feature a representation of Mount Diablo, which, like the depiction on Oak Street, will consist of layered peaks of the foothills in front of the mountain, each back-lit to create visual depth. Lighting. Additional streetlights will be installed, acorn-style lights replacing the cobra-style lamps currently in use in

some places. The popular tree lighting will be installed on the new trees – deciduous species that will not drop fruit or seed pods like the current trees – and highlight lighting will be spotted around the area on entry monuments and the fountain. Reed said the contractors are being given some scheduling flexibility to allow for maximum efficiency and minimum impact, but that detailed timing information will be provided to merchants and residents as work in various areas is set to begin. Ongoing reports on the project’s status, as well as an opportunity to provide comment, will be available on the project Web page, www.ci.brentwood.ca.us/ streetscapes. More information or donations of material for the entry monument artwork can be arranged by e-mailing Reed at kreed@ci.brentwood.ca.us. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

reopened the applications because I was disappointed to have missed it last time,” said Rinehart. “I would imagine now that the time had been extended, other people will want to apply too.” Brentwood resident Clint Love has also expressed interest in the seat. Like Rinehart, Love, owner of Bay Area Cremation and Funeral Services, missed the previous application deadline. And this week, Taylor announced that he was also applying for the position. “I am very interested in serving on the (cemetery) board,” said Taylor. “I serve on many different boards and I have submitted my qualifications and will let the process do its job.” County officials this week said that both Piepho’s and Quinn’s applications are still valid and would be considered. Glover, who is chairman of the Public Protection Com-

mittee, said the application extension offers a chance for Board of Supervisors to establish policy for future appointments. “The whole appointment process is one that is normally done by the supervisor of the district, but because of a possible conflict of interest it went to the chairman,” said Glover. “I don’t know if there is a conflict or not. Mary (Piepho) recused herself from the conflict and I don’t know if the other pieces (application process) were done properly or not. But I think it is important to see a policy put in place, and this gives the board a chance to do that.” Both of the Piephos declined to comment for the story. Applications for the cemetery board seat are being accepted from now until Oct. 12 and can be obtained by calling 925-335-1900 or visiting www.co.contra-costa.ca.us.

Big plays, turnovers doom Liberty end, but they played like champs.” Deer Valley scored both touchdowns in the second quarter – one on a quarterback sneak by senior Mike Behr and another on a pass to senior running back Lamontay Marshall. College Park was able to effectively run the option all game long, keeping the Wolverine defense on its toes. “We had a great week of practice and it showed on the field,” junior lineman Tavita Taito said. Deer Valley has not lost a regular season game since Oct. 25, 2008.

Throughout the first half of Friday’s game in Orinda, Liberty High varsity football players and coaches were confident the Lions could topple undefeated Miramonte on its home turf. It took the Matadors one quick play after halftime to reverse that feeling. Up by six in the third quarter, Miramonte junior quarterback Ross Anderson connected with junior receiver Jack Pietrykowski for a 70-yard touchdown. The Matadors rolled after that point, beating Liberty 33-0. “That killed us a lot,” senior linebacker Tony Webb said of the big TD pass. “Their momentum increased and ours decreased.” The Lions (2-2) committed five turnovers and were unable to get a running game going, despite good blocking from the offensive line. The leading Liberty rusher on the night was senior halfback Shawn Vasquez, who racked up 41 yards. Head coach Nate Smith was able to take solace in the fact that the Lions can make adjustments in the upcoming bye week. “You’re never going to beat a team like Miramonte turning the ball over five times,” Smith said. “That creates an ultimate frustration because you know you can do things against their defense. I don’t think their defense really shut us down tonight so much as we shut ourselves down.” After its bye week, Liberty will travel

Mental errors hurt Antioch High’s varsity football team on Friday in a 44-7 loss to the host Napa Indians. “We didn’t do our responsibilities very well, and before you know it, we’re down three touchdowns,” head coach John Lucido said. “I’m still kind of in shock right now.” The Panthers’ (0-4) lone touchdown came in the second quarter on a pass by junior Troy Amate. As the team is learning a new offense, the season so far has been rough. Antioch was also without the services of a couple of key players such as junior running back/free safety Josh Oseguera and senior linemen Clayton Nicholas and Allison Cooper. “We’re going through some hard times, but it’s picking up a little bit,” Lucido said. “We’re just waiting for that opportunity.”

Local MMA fighter sets his sights high by Michael Dixon CJ LeVeque, right, is a 2004 Liberty High alumnus trying to make a name for himself in mixed martial arts. He won a fight last month at Placerville’s Red Hawk Casino.

Correspondent The advancement of mixed martial arts has opened doors for the likes of CJ LeVeque, a 2004 Liberty High alumnus. “I used to play Little League baseball and then I played football in high school,” said LeVeque. “From there, I got into wrestling and then I fell in love with jujitsu and that took me into fighting. I started fighting about a half-year after I graduated high school.” LeVeque, 25, most recently won a fight at Placerville’s Red Hawk Casino on Sept. 18, which moved his record to 2-1. The fight was notable because both LeVeque and his opponent were called upon to fight with less than two hours notice. While a win would have been good enough, the achievements didn’t end there. Despite the lack of preparation time given to the fighters, they won the Fight of the Night award. After nearly winning the fight in the opening round, LeVeque won in the sec-

LeVeque’s rigorous training ritual consists of running with his trainer three days a week through the hills by the Los Vaqueros Reservoir off of Vasco Road. The other

sure of when his next fight will take place. At the latest, he’s hoping to schedule a fight by the end of the year but he wants to schedule a fight sometime during October. Another goal of LeVeque is to win the heavyweight championship of the Gladiator Challenge, the series in which LeVeque fights. The Gladiator Challenge shows take place in casinos throughout California and Arizona. In his corner to help him achieve his goal is friend and trainer Paul DeMarco, head coach of Liberty’s freshman football team. When he’s not fighting or training, LeVeque, or Big C as he is also known, is in his second year on DeMarco’s coaching staff. While he was a student at Liberty, he wrestled and played football. He was on the varsity football team for three seasons and was a captain of both the wrestling and football teams during his senior year.

Patriots go north to glory The Delta Patriots Starts East team took home a huge victory this past weekend against the Galt Jr. Warriors, 35-22. The Patriots made excellent plays offensively and defensively. Blake Capurro notched a 70-yard run for a touchdown on the second offensive play to set the tone for the morning. It was one of three touchdowns for Capurro throughout the game. Despite entering halftime trailing the Warriors 22-15, the East came back solid to defeat Galt. Quarterback Greg Filardo and Caden Lewis scored a touchdown each to seal the win against the Warriors. The defense played tough football, highlighted by excellent moves by Jaden Harvey, Brenden Howard, Joey Storey and Nathan Stansbery. Starts West run wild at Tokay Jake Byrne pounded the ball all day behind fierce blocking by J.D. Glenn, Dayton Dumag, Forrest Johnson, Rylie Wolfe, Dimitri Charitou and Corbin Cardwell. West went on to win 37-6 and improve its record to 5-1. The Starts West defense shut down the Tokay Offense on every drive but the opening series. Dominic Guay led the way, making tackles all over the field. Tokay Jr. Tigers 20, Delta Patriots Varsity West 14 Despite a late comeback, Delta Patriots Varsity West fell short on the road 2014 to the Tokay Jr. Tigers. West wide receiver Cade Bonte pulled down a five-yard touchdown pass from Alex Hull, tying the game with 1:30 to go. The Tigers responded by driving straight down the field and scoring on a 35-yard run with 33 seconds on the clock to salvage the victory. The game featured a breakout performance by Patriots West defensive tackle Brandon Gliedt, including a sack and strong pressure on the Tiger quarterback. West flanker Dylan Capps pulled down four catches for 75 yards to spark the offense. Patriots push ahead in battle with Warriors The Delta Patriots JV East team traveled to Galt to take on the Jr. Warriors in the heat of Central Valley. The stands went wild as the Patriots took the lead with a game-winning 63-yard touchdown run by Spencer Rohrer. Justin Dam also contributed with TD runs of 67 and 14 yards, the second of which was sprung by the downfield blocking of Brooklyn Hardiman. Ethan Sabal displayed his skills as receiver with several snags in heavy coverage. The tenacious Patriot defense fought hard the whole game. Sacks by Santiago Ramirez and Adam Morris, as well as a key fumble recovery by Garrett Alcorn, led the defense. Buoyed by the win, the East looks forward to its next game in two weeks against the Weston Ranch Ravens.

Heated Laliberte crowned champion by Jack Menges Correspondent Tommy Laliberte was forced to wait a few days before learning that he was the 2010 Antioch Speedway wingless sprint champion. Laliberte came into the final point race of the season with a comfortable lead, only to run into problems when during the main event, the nerf bar on the rear of his race car was damaged to the extent that officials deemed it was a danger to allow him to remain on the track. He went to the pits for repairs while

the yellow caution flag was displayed on the track. However, when he was ready to return to action, the yellow flag had been replaced with the green. Laliberte was unable to return until another yellow flag was shown on the speedway. It never came, but the point leader was nevertheless credited with a last-place finish – apparently good enough for the championship. However, Laliberte got into a heated argument with race officials in the infield because he wasn’t allowed to return to the track when he was prepared. He finally stepped on the gas of his racer and spun

his wheels, sending gravel flying through the air, endangering officials and crews in the infield. Debris broke the windshield of the track tow truck. Officials informed Laliberte and his team that they would meet to discuss a possible penalty on the driver for his actions. Citing Laliberte for “unsportsmanlike conduct,” it was ruled that the driver be fined and still awarded last place in the

race. After a review of the scoring sheets for the season, it was determined that Laliberte won the championship point race by a 622-612 count over David Press. The point season is over at the speedway, but it will host a special open competition program Oct. 9 when the dirt modifieds, super stocks and pure stocks converge on the track.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Too much potassium not good for seniors The good news is that we are living longer. The not-so-good news is that as we get into our elderly years, more health-related risks arise – and the details can be overwhelming. Many websites supply helpful information, but sifting through it can be time consuming and overwhelming. Each month I’ll provide information and shortcuts to some important health questions that will help our seniors or loved ones who care for seniors. This month’s tip is about potassium. Through my mom’s doctor I’ve learned that too much potassium in the system can cause kidney stress and even failure. It can also have a strong affect on the heart. As we age, our kidneys and the rest of our organs must work harder. Certain foods and medicines accelerate that deterioration. Check with your doctor and pharmacy about drugs that go through the kidneys, as there might be alternatives that bypass

that set of organs but accomplish the same goals. Among the foods high in potassium are potatoes, cantaloupe, lentils, oranges, apricots, avocados, turkey, beef, salmon, raisins, figs, prunes, honeydew, sardines, bananas, kiwi and lima beans. It’s important to keep a good balance of the amount of potassium in the system and not have too much or too little. The health.gov website recommends that seniors limit their potassium level to no more than 2,000 mg per day. Consult your doctor and/or nutritionist to ensure a safe and healthy level. Too much is equally as bad as too little. Marla Luckhardt is a Brentwood resident and member of the East Contra Costa Senior Coalition. She works with several local senior care and advocacy groups, and will be providing information in The Press of interest to the senior community. To contact Luckhardt, e-mail marla2054@aol.com.

Getting sound medical attention for you and your family requires more than simply going to the doctor when you aren’t feeling well. It’s about planning for a healthy life and learning how to be an informed medical consumer. Your decisions affect more than just you, because the right choices can protect your family for generations to come. “A recent study found that families are more likely to slip into poverty after the death of a primary breadwinner to cancer,” said Virgil Simons, president and CEO of The Prostate Net. “So being a good healthcare consumer isn’t just about taking care of yourself; it’s about caring for your family as well.”

Come prepared Whether we like it or not, healthcare has become more bureaucratic in recent years. But smart healthcare consumers come prepared to manage the system. They understand their problems and concerns, and ask the right questions. They bring a family member or a friend to help “hear” the doctor’s responses and directives. Understanding your symptoms and possible conditions can help you understand a doctor’s diagnosis and sugges-

tions for care. But make sure you get your information from reliable sources, whether online or in print, such as ProstateNet. org, which links patients to providers for information about prevention, treatment and survival. The site’s new Symposium page gives you free access to recorded videos of regional medical conferences, which provides information from physicians and researchers about the best standard of care.

Doctors aren’t psychics Your doctor will likely ask a multitude of questions during your visit, but that doesn’t mean he or she can read your mind. Take an active role in your care by asking questions, taking notes, knowing your family’s history, and detailing the medications, vitamins or supplements that you take. “Good consumers get better care because they’ve done their homework,” said Simons. “They’ve come prepared, make the doctor aware of their health needs or goals and encourage a partnership between the doctor, themselves and their families for the best standard of care. It’s the best path to receiving good medical care and making good decisions to protect your family.” – Courtesy of StatePoint Media

Make tailgating a homemade happening If you can’t make it to the big game or the big race this year, why not invite friends and family over to watch them on TV and host a tailgate in your backyard? Award-winning pitmaster Chris Lilly shares a few tips to make your charcoal grill a success on game day: Take the lead

Get busy before the party. Marinating meat or plating and refrigerating food the night before can make all the difference. Your food should be simple and enjoyed with one hand, standing up, and ideally without utensils. Prepare for a crowd

Your choice of meat is where you can be value-conscious without compromising flavor. Try chicken wings instead of chicken breasts. Grill hot dogs but offer a variety of mustards and gourmet toppings such as grilled peppers or spicy corn relish. Hit the high groove

Don’t skimp when it comes to charcoal. Kingsford charcoal now features deeper, wider and longer grooves to catch the flame faster and burn longer. And don’t allow lighter fluid to soak the coals before lighting them Instead, add lighter fluid following lighter fluid directions, lighting immediately and letting the coals burn until they’re covered in ash (about 15 minutes). For more game-day grilling tips and recipes, visit facebook.com/kingsfordcharcoal.

Grilled Bratwurst with Chow-chow Preparation time: 20 minutes, plus four to 12 hours for vegetable marinade. Cooking time:

1 hour, 10 minutes. 8 uncooked bratwurst sausages 8 hot dog buns 2 24-ounce cans cola 1 medium head cabbage, shredded 4 green bell peppers, diced 2 onions, diced 2 green tomatoes, diced (can substitute tomatillos) ½ cup salt 3 cups vinegar 2½ cups sugar 1 tablespoon celery seed 1 teaspoon turmeric In large container, combine cabbage, peppers, onions and tomatoes (raw vegetables should equal 2½ to 3 quarts). Mix with ½ cup salt and cover. Let stand for 4 to 12 hours. Drain well. Combine vinegar, sugar, celery seed and turmeric in large pot and bring to a boil. Add drained vegetables and simmer for one hour, stirring occasionally. Chow-chow can be served as a hot or cold topping. For canning, spoon into sterilized pint canning jars and seal (makes 3 pints). Pour cola into small pot. Add sausages, bring to a boil. As soon as cola turns clear, remove sausages (about four to five minutes). Preheat charcoal grill to 400°F. Place bratwursts on hot grate over direct heat for two minutes on each side. Remove from grill and place on bun. Top with a generous helping of Chow-chow. Makes eight servings. – Courtesy of Family Features

Lions take on T-Birds The East County Youth Football Lion midget team lost a heartbreaker against a strong San Ramon T-Bird squad last weekend. Both teams pounded each other for four full quarters before San Ramon drew first blood. East County came roaring back, driving the ball down to the 20-yard line, where Lance Coleman hit Michael Gessini for a touchdown; Dominic Visentine made the extra point. Laboring in the mid-afternoon heat, players on both sides hoped the game wouldn’t go into overtime. With one minute on the clock, San Ramon tried a 30yard field goal and made it. The Pee Wee division game featured the Lions taking on the defending champion T-Birds, who came in with a record of 2-0. The Lions gave them all they could handle, but lost 16-6. Running back Ronnie Rivers led the Lion offense with an electrifying run on a pitch to the right side. Rivers juked four defenders on his way to the long touchdown run. Defensively, the Lions were led by tackle Richie Kabasinkas and linebacker Abel Ordaz, who made tackles for losses. Safety Dewey Martin made a fumble recovery, as did Ordaz. Despite the Lions’ intensity of play, the T-Birds converted Lion turnovers into two scores. The Lions travel to Pleasant Hill next to take on the Rebels.

Shootout from page 1B D’amora Cooper, was also strong. In addition to scoring the opening touchdown of the night, he ran for 110 yards on 22 carries and caught an 18-yard pass. His success as a return man was mixed: he dropped a kickoff out of bounds, setting up poor field position that Golden Valley ultimately converted into points. He fumbled after a 68-yard return, but that was recovered by a teammate. That return set up Melena’s field goal. Mayes, who is just a sophomore, was 13 for 24 and passed for 170 yards. He also threw one interception, plus one touchdown to junior receiver Jordan Sheppard. “We scored the most points that we have all year but we still lost,” said Hartwig. “We have just got to do better. That’s the biggest thing that we need to impress upon our guys: every week’s different; we just have to get better.” Early in Freedom’s opening drive, one of the light stands went completely out, leaving the Freedom maintenance crew to scramble for lights on that end of the field. The night was not a complete loss for Freedom, as the junior varsity team won 27-6. The star of that game QB Bryan Wargo, who scored once on a 37-yard touchdown run. He also threw three touchdowns, connecting with Richard Jones on a 21-yard strike and Dominic Trujillo twice — once for 31 yards and once for 70. The 70-yard touchdown came on the game’s first play. On Friday, Oct. 1, at 3:30 p.m., Freedom faces College Park High in Pleasant Hill. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.
