Transplan skittish about car fee hike justment.’ I think there needs to be some sunset, even if it’s a long way down the road.” An election-chastened Taylor urged a united campaign for marketing the fee hike. “It’s been quite a week,” he said. “I guess what we have to be real careful of, and I will approach that with CCTA, is that the public right now is very concerned about many, many items and things. For us to sell this we have to have that this is a good thing because it is gonna come back to source (the cities). This is all for the good and well for all 19 cities (in the county). Basically, they will do within their city what is good for the city. I really feel that we all are going to have to sell the same tune.” Taylor is concerned about the lukewarm support for the fee hike in the county and even less support in East County. “We were the lowest of the entire region,” he noted. “So, you know, for me to stand out in Brentwood and stand on the highest hill and –” “That’s not in Brentwood, sorry,” interrupted Kalinowski in a joking reference to the hilly Measure F area. As many started to laugh, he added, “Bad joke.” “Bad joke,” echoed Taylor with a chuckle and then got serious about the fee hike’s chances. “I don’t mind telling

“ My only concern about this is that what I hear from

by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

Despite a majority of East County residents opposing a $10 permanent increase in the vehicle registration fee for transportation projects, East County officials last month unanimously approved placing the fee hike on the November ballot. But last week, after two local officials suffered setbacks in Tuesday’s election, they were nervous about its passage. East County residents are the most wary in the county of the fee hike, according to a poll conducted in April for the Contra Costa Transportation Association (CCTA). Only 46 percent of East County residents support it, while 51 are percent opposed – despite East County residents expressing the greatest need in the county for road improvements. Support countywide for the fee increase is 54 percent. At last month’s Transplan meeting, Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor, who is also the CCTA chairman, said East County’s skepticism of a fee hike is understandable. “What we were really discovering here is East County has probably suffered with their housing going down,” he said. “Also the people out here are probably a little agitated, paying for BART for many years and still don’t have it. So when you ask them to support a ve-

folks about fee increases or taxes, or whatever term we use, is that when they are enacted, they never end.

Brian Kalinowski, Transplan hicle fee (increase), I can understand they probably are a little bit like a beehive.” Taylor and another Transplan member, Antioch City Councilman Brian Kalinowski, got stung by those bees on June 8. Measure F, the Brentwood land change measure supported by Taylor, lost by a percentage of 43-57. And Kalinowski lost the sheriff ’s race to Bob Livingstone by the same margin. Two days later at the Transplan meeting, they were not sounding confident about the car fee hike’s chances as they discussed, and joked a bit, about lessons from the election. Kalinowski, who had not attended the previous Transplan meeting, was initially unclear about whether the fee hike was on the agenda for a vote or discussion. After finding out it was just for an update, he joked, “It’s been a long week, for some reason.” Then he began a bit of second-guessing about asking taxpayers for more money. “My only concern about this is that what I hear from folks about fee increases or taxes, or what-

ever term we use, is that when they are enacted, they never end. And this is an example of that argument that we get push-back on. “And furthermore, it’s $10 now, but $10 45 years from now is going to be a ridiculous funding stream that’s going to be a nuisance to maintain. It just doesn’t seem, from my perspective, responsible to go that route during a recession. If you said, ‘Over the next 25 years here’s $500 million’ and you can quantify a time line and estimated construction or improvement costs, then that’s reasonable to me or the voter. But the unknown quantity and sort of infinite time line is, I think, where we end up with problems. “Because we don’t know what the costs will be. We are just going to assume that they are there. If we ran it concurrent with Measure J (the 25-year halfcent sales tax for road projects), then it would make sense to people. And then when they revisit this issue they can say, ‘Do we want to increase that amount, because 10 is now 20? We can make that ad-

Nutritious treasures sustain the needy by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

They’re called Treasure Boxes – cartons of brand-name food items sold at discount prices – and for many area residents feeling the pinch during these tough economic times, the name says it all. “These are difficult times for a lot of people and for many it’s hard to survive right now,” said Deb Melander, whose Brentwood church, Creekside Christian, became a host site for the Treasure Box program in March. “When I first heard about it (Treasure Box) I thought it was a really interesting idea, and as soon as I got to see the food I saw that this was something I needed to be involved in.” Founded 18 months ago as a division of Good Source Solutions – a food packaging company based in Carlsbad – Treasure Box was developed as a means to provide families and individuals with fresh, affordable, healthy food at a fraction of grocery store prices. For $30, purchasers receive 20 to 25 pounds of fresh groceries (worth between $65 to $100) including meat, frozen vegetables and fruit, plus side menu items such as macaroni and cheese or potatoes – enough to feed a family of four for a week, or a senior citizen for a month. Operating much as the discount clothing chains such as Marshall’s or Ross, Treasure Box items are purchased

Treasure Box cartons contain brand-name food items sold at discount prices. in bulk from name-brand companies, and because much of the complicated distribution process is bypassed, the price savings are passed on to the consumer. Treasure Box currently offers three varieties of boxes for $30: the Protein Box, which is a meat-only package; the Variety Box, which includes fruits and vegetables as

well as the meat products and side dishes; and the Quick and Healthy box, a sampling of 10 prepared healthy meals low in fat and sodium. In Brentwood, as in other locations throughout the state, Treasure Box partners with faith-based and communityfocused organizations such as Creekside

Christian to get the word out and the boxes sold. Ordering can be done online or in person with cash. “Right now we are just a bunch of volunteers trying to spread the word for people who want to purchase the boxes for themselves or for someone else in need,” said Melander. “So far the response has been very nice.” While the primary focus of the Treasure Box program is on the low-income, elderly and homeless, the appeal of the food boxes is universal. “There are no qualifications and no restrictions to this,” said Melander, who has purchased Treasure Boxes for her own family. “A lot of people who are buying these boxes are middle-income folks – people who have lost their jobs, single moms with kids to feed, and senior citizens on fixed incomes.” And the program has begun to catch on. In April, when Treasure Box was launched in Brentwood, 75 orders were placed. In May, orders reached 246, and June is on track to surpass those numbers. “We’re just going to keep pounding the pavement to let people know about Treasure Box,” said Melander. “It’s an amazing program and I absolutely believe in it.” For additional information, or to order a Treasure Box online, go to www. thetreasurebox.org or call 925-437-1146.

Blues blown away by Delta drafts It was A.D. 2010 on the California Delta but it could have been A.D. 1010 on the North Atlantic. I closed my eyes and felt the boat’s prow slam against a roller, felt the headwind rattle my eyelids. Suddenly I was a Viking gripping the manrail of a longTAKE IT boat hooking out UTSIDE of Trondheimsfjord on its way down the coast of Norway, my flaxen braids streaming flat in a 30-knot gust. I opened my eyes and found myself aboard the C.T. GER Slicker, a 33-foot day ERICKSON cruiser captained by Tom Moorad of Discovery Bay. Tom had invited me to join him and a handful of crewmates on a journey from Disco Bay to Tule Island, where Stockton Deep Water Channel marker 16 and the Delta Yacht Club make their home. My adventures on the trail normally take place beneath a blue sky. Today, the blue was below as well. Unaccustomed as I am to aquatic adventure, I expected the day’s agenda to consist of sedate sightseeing as the Delta’s tule-lined sloughs slipped placidly past. The reality was better. We were still idling through the no-wake zone when it became clear that this excursion would be no walk in the park. As we cleared the shelter of the town’s residences and headed toward deep water, a 25 mph wind gusting to 40 began raking our faces and tugging at our headgear. Wind direction: from the northeast. Our heading: northeast. I tightened my cap band to the cut-off-circulation-to-skull notch, and the bluster intensified to match it. I decided to

Make no mistake: it was a spectacular day to be out on the water – the kind of spectacular that evidently keeps most folks off the water. As we plowed an 11-knot furrow up Middle River, an occasional fishing boat could be seen bobbing against the reeds, and the planing hull of a cigarette boat knifing through the chop. But not many skiers or wakeboarders were daring the squalls on this sunny Saturday morning. That’s OK – I try to avoid the company of the clinically insane.

Our hardy crew of Adriana, Alan, David, Leia, Smyrna and Tommy took the conditions in stride. By the time we swung into Mildred Tract, where whitecaps laced the surface like confetti, extra layers had been donned and noses thumbed at the gods of gales. A couple hundred yards out, a tube built for four careened crazily over the washboard surface like a rodeo bull in the act of unloading its cargo. Tom, who as a native Chicagoan is no stranger to wind and cold, took note of the 70-degree water temperature.

By mid-June, he said, the mercury is normally up to about 75. Seems like the Sierra’s winter melt was making its frigidity felt a hundred miles west. Tom’s been navigating the Delta’s labyrinthine layout for 18 years, so there isn’t much he hasn’t seen. We passed a spot called Five Fingers, where boats once dropped anchor but are now barred by weeds. He pointed out eroded slough banks and admitted that boat wakes only speed up the damage.

to smile and crack a quip, but he views the current state of the Delta as no laughing matter. A shade short of 18 miles after we’d shoved off from Clipper Estates, the palm-embellished outline of Tule Island and the Delta Yacht Club complex came into focus. Tied up at the long stretch of dock was only one boat, testimony to the day’s rigorous conditions. C.T. Slicker (the initials stand for Cecile and Tom) approached the dock warily as the wind tried to spin it like a compass needle gone haywire. Skipper Tom sidled our boat against the dock and got us tied up. Nifty piloting for a city slicker. A few hours of good eats, good banter and my dubious bocce ball skills later,

it was time to rejoin so-called civilization. And wouldn’t you know it: still only two boats were moored at the dock. It was tempting to consider us a rare crew, and then the thought came: the more I rub shoulders with East County folk, the less their generosity, their grit and their wit seem a rarity. The wind, now from the northwest, gave us a starboard nudge and C.T. Slicker’s twin 270 Crusaders churned us away from the white dock and toward the pale peaks of Mt. Diablo jutting low in the haze of distance. I’d been ushered from my world of trails into the world of tules, from blue above to blue below. For a glorious day on the Delta, this landlubber’s blues had been obliterated. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Within the past few years, it was reported that West Nile Virus was found in Contra Costa County. It hasn’t been in the news much lately, and that might be because of sensible precautions the County has taken to prevent the spread. Just because we haven’t heard about it doesn’t mean we should let up on this issue. The following is a quote from http://westnile.ca.gov/ - “Most often, West Nile is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito. Mosquitoes are carriers (“vectors”) that become infected when they feed on infected birds. Infected mosquitoes can then spread West Nile to humans and other animals when they bite. Anything that can hold standing water for a few days can become the source for mosquito production. Eliminate standing water – eliminate mosquitos.” If you see a dead squirrel or dead bird, visit the website above and report it, or call 877.968.2473. The biggest culprit would be abandoned swimming pools, but this also means abandoned spas, old tires, flower pots, clogged rain gutters, etc. Do a check around your property for anything that can hold stagnant water and take care of it ASAP.

The best possible option for a green pool is to resume maintaining it, but if that isn’t possible, the next best step is to drain it completely. If there is a green pool in your neighborhood, you can report it anonymously to 877.968.2473. You can even call this number for your own pool and ask them to come out and put mosquito fish in your pool until you can get it cleaned up. If you are worried about “turning yourself in” you shouldn’t be. Their goal is to reduce mosquitos, period. They will work with you and provide quite a bit of free resources and help. It’s only if the situation gets dire and you ignore their help that they will start to abate the problem for you, and charge you for it. They can even levy fines as high as $1,000 per day if you ignore their offers of help and warnings. And don’t think that ignoring the problem will make it go away. One of your neighbors WILL eventually call. If you have questions on this or any other real estate topic, call me at (925) 240-MOVE (6683).

The students and their families, above, with members of the Antioch Police Department, get high marks for their recent work in that arena. With the help of more than 40 local businesses that supplied raffle prizes, the group raised more than $5,400 for the department’s canine unit. “We were pleased and proud to do something for our police department because they do so much for all of us,” said Castro-Manner. “It was awesome to see people reach deep into their pockets.” Additional efforts are in the works to raise the rest of the approximately $15,000 needed to acquire a new police dog, which will take the place of one of the PD’s retiring animals.

Effort escalates to save frosh sports The Liberty Union High School District Educational Foundation has joined in the effort to save ninth-grade sports in the district. At last month’s regular board meeting, the LUHSD Board of Trustees voted to implement round two of budget cuts in order to balance the $4 million deficit the district faces next year. The latest cuts included eliminating all coaching stipends for ninth-grade coaches, which provided a total savings to the district of $48,000. The principals, athletic directors, coaches and faculty have begun a campaign to solicit donations to restore freshmen sports programs by raising money from the community and public at large. The board has taken a district-wide approach and agreed to restore the programs at Freedom, Heritage and Liberty high schools if $48,000 is raised by Aug. 1. The deadline requirement will allow for timely notifications, staffing and scheduling to occur in time for the programs to be restored. The Liberty Educational Foundation has agreed to accept donations on behalf of the Save Freshmen Sports Campaign. To make a donation, visit the Liberty Educational Foundation Web site, educationwins.org, or send a check payable to Liberty Educational Founda-

tion (memo: “Restoration of ninth-grade sports”) to: Liberty Union High School District Office, 20 Oak St., Brentwood, CA 94513. Those desiring to help organize a fundraising event to restore the freshmen sports programs should call Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Eric Volta at 925-634-2166, ext. 2045 for more information.

Eagle candidate to honor veterans by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

While most high school students are out enjoying the sunshine, reveling in the few precious summer weeks where they leave responsibility by the wayside, David Juarez is spending his summer learning about leadership and the importance of community as he prepares to complete his Eagle Scout project later this month. Juarez, who will be a senior at Heritage High School in Brentwood in the fall, plans to install a special memorial in Veterans Park on Sunday, June 27, to honor the sacrifices of the men and women of the military. The project fulfills the community service requirement of Juarez’s Eagle Scout candidacy. “When you decide on an Eagle project, you need to find something you are passionate about or else the project becomes a chore,” Juarez said. “I decided to do something for our veterans because my dad, grandpa, uncles and cousins have served in the Marines, and I’ve always been taught to respect, remember and appreciate everything that veterans have done for us. We wouldn’t have what we have today without the many sacrifices from our men and women in uniform, and I want to do something to acknowledge local veterans in the community.” Following a brief memorial dedication ceremony at the park, featuring a guest speaker and the unveiling of the plaque, a motorcycle procession will lead guests to Veterans Hall, where Juarez, with the help of his friends, will serve a free dinner to 100 veterans and their guests. Brentwood Café will cater the invitation-only event, which will include guest speakers and live entertainment. While the plaque will become a permanent fixture in the community, Juarez said he wanted to host a dinner for the veterans as a token of his gratitude.

While Juarez hasn’t ruled out a military career, the Heritage varsity linebacker hopes to attend UCLA to study business. Since his senior schedule will be loaded with extracurricular activities and several AP classes, Juarez wanted to make sure he completed his Eagle Scout project this summer. “Eagle Scout is a prestigious status, and this project is helping me get out of my comfort zone,” Juarez said. “I’m doing a lot of presentations and organizing this whole thing. It’s a lot of work, but the process teaches you a lot of good things about leadership, and that will be a helpful skill to have throughout my life. I’ve met a lot of community leaders through this process and I’m taking on something that most kids my age will never do in their lifetime.” Juarez, who hatched the idea for his Eagle Scout project in February, believes the memorial and the plaque are his way of honoring local veterans as well as creating awareness about all they’ve done by serving and protecting the country over the years. “A lot of people take members of the armed forces for granted, but it’s not their fault,” said Juarez. “They just don’t realize that someone had to fight for the freedoms they enjoy every day. I hope this project will help create more awareness and appreciation for our local veterans. They’ve done so much to protect our freedoms, and it’s important for them to know that their sacrifices will never be forgotten.” To help complete his project, Juarez is asking the community for monetary donations to help pay for the plaque and the dinner. Donations, which are tax deductible (Tax ID 20-1711528), may be sent to BSA Troop 298, c/o David Juarez, 1323 Muscat Court, Brentwood, CA 94513. The memorial unveiling will take place at Veterans Park near the flagpoles at 5 p.m. on June 27. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Deer Valley says goodbye to seniors by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

When Vitamin C’s song “Graduation” first hit the airwaves, members of Deer Valley’s Class of 2010 were only 8, but the lyrics still provide a sentimental reflection on the journey that 563 Wolverines started four years ago. As the Divine Voices Choir swayed as they sang the chorus “And as our lives change, come whatever, we will still be friends forever,” students in black and teal gowns smiled, waved at family and friends, wiped away tears and sat as patiently as possible, anticipating the elusive moment they’d been dreaming about. “When we first entered the Deer Valley gates, many of us were already anxious to become seniors,” reflected Senior Class President Meghan Wristen. “We saw all of the activities they got to do and how everything they did seemed so special. Well, those times we looked forward to are now coming to an end.” Wristen identified highlights from the past nine months that led to this moment, including homecoming, senior ball and countless sports victories, but she encouraged her peers to cherish the memories before moving on to the future. “Our class was one of a kind, but now it’s the end of the road,” she said. “Each and every student in our class has helped to make our high school years memorable. We had many times when we lived, laughed and

However our smiles will fade, our tears will dry, but our memories will last forever.” Valedictorian Tyler Hayes kicked off the inspirational quotes portion of the ceremony, but not everyone in attendance might have recognized Polonius’ speech from Act I, Scene III of “Hamlet,” so he encouraged everyone to look it up on SparkNotes after the ceremony. In summary, Hayes urged the graduates to follow their own paths (“to thine own self be true”) and achieve the goals they set for themselves. Life has no cookie-cutter plan that must be followed, he said, so if the col-

lege-career-family-white-picket-fence American Dream isn’t your dream, go do your own thing so that you don’t wake up one day and wonder where your life went while you were trying to live up to someone else’s expectations. Principals Scott Bergerhouse and Clarence Isadore left the students with more short and sweet pearls of wisdom that were easier to digest. Bergerhouse, quoting Maya Angelou, said: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel,” while Isadore quoted Albert Einstein, encouraging students to “Try

not to become a person of success but rather try to become a person of value.” Donald Gill, in his first Deer Valley address as AUSD superintendent, beamed with pride as he addressed the graduates: “Today we celebrate you. We do so because you are our hope and our future. At the end of this ceremony, you will have fulfilled another significant step in your life’s journey. Tomorrow, you will embark on an exciting trek toward adulthood.” Gill asked the students to be open to life’s possibilities and to live life with courage as he passed on the metaphorical leadership baton.

Kiwanis International has more than 240,000 members, but none are more enthusiastic about helping others than the 30 who have just recently joined. With the assistance of Kiwanians from Antioch and Brentwood, those 30 have chartered their own organization, the Oakley Kiwanis. Helmed by President Jim Frazier, the group held its first meeting last month and already has a plethora of ideas of how to help the Oakley community. “We’re really excited about getting this club off the ground,” said Frazier. “We’ve got a lot of great people in our community who want to help, and now they have another way to get involved. The Delta Kiwanis (of Antioch) approached me at a gathering recently and asked if Oakley would consider beginning its own chapter, and I thought, ‘Wow – I like what you do but I don’t know if there will be any interest in Oakley.’ So we started asking people around town, and a lot of people expressed interest in the club and were ready to jump on board.” The club meets every Monday evening at Mike’s Beef ’N’ Brew to discuss projects and ways to fulfill Kiwanis’ mission – to change the world one child and one community at a time. While Kiwanis is a community service organization, the club’s focus is helping children, a cause about which Oakley Kiwanis Charter Member Casey Harvey is passionate. “I really like the idea of Kiwanis because its about helping kids, and it gives you a way to help the kids in your community. I’ve been looking for a way to get involved and this seems like a perfect fit,” Harvey said. “Being a part of this club shows me that I have a voice in the community and I can make a difference. This is a group of likeminded people with good hearts who just want to help out and make their community a better place to live in, and by helping our children, we are building a stronger community.” Harvey said she tells people about Oakley Kiwanis every chance she gets, and the Kiwanis buzz is slowly making its way through town. That’s how Ralph Diaz got involved. “I overheard someone talking about Kiwanis while I was at the hardware store, and I couldn’t help but want to join,” Diaz said. “The more I heard, the more I wanted to get involved. I think this is going to be a great community organization. There are a lot of great people here who want to do great things for the community.” Diaz, who recruited his wife Theresa, said the community should unite to help the children who live in the city of Oakley, as they are the future of the community. Theresa agreed. “We are lucky to have a large healthy family, and now we want to give back,” she said. “And now is the best time to join the Oakley Kiwanis because there are so many ideas being passed around. People are really excited about working in the community and being on the ground floor of a club that will change the community for the better.” While the organization has yet to decide on its first project, Frazier said he’d like to raise money to provide instructional materials for teachers in the Oakley Union School District, support La Clinica, and partner with the Friends of Oakley, of which he is also a member, to expand the Christmas Basket Program. He also would like the organization to offer

support and assistance with the creation of an all-abilities playground next to O’Hara Park Middle School. Janet Frazier, Jim’s wife, shares his enthusiasm for community service. An Oakley Kiwanis secretary, Janet said that for years the Fraziers sent checks to support their favorite charities, but now they prefer to get out in the community and work directly with the people who need help through their own nonprofit organization, Network of Care, as well as many other locally-based charities. “People think they need to set aside an entire day to do volunteer work,” Janet said, “but it only takes a few hours to show you care. Volunteerism is an indescribably rewarding experi-

Relay from page 1A ing,” Trudy said. “I didn’t know what it was, but it was serious.” Munion’s diagnosis was prostate cancer, and he would soon learn that his Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) level was 9 (1 is the lowest, 10 the highest and worst). “The thoughts that were going through my head were that I was dead,” he said. His father-in-law had died of cancer, wasting away from the disease and the chemo and radiation used to treat it. “I didn’t want to go through that,” said Bob. “There were times when I just wanted to say, ‘I’m done.’” Trudy worried endlessly about him, to the point she counted Bob’s pain pills at night to make sure he hadn’t intentionally taken too many. With Trudy’s help, though, Bob slowly began to understand that he wasn’t alone in his struggle. “I came to the realization that I (((ital “I”))) didn’t have cancer, we (((ital “we”))) had cancer,” Bob said. “The whole family had cancer.” If that was true, then his entire church had it, too. A member of Creekside Church in Brentwood, Bob said a visit from Pastor Scott Kirk on the eve of his surgery let him know there was support even from those he couldn’t see. “We prayed together,” he said. “We felt another presence, and we knew God was with us. All of a sudden I felt at ease.” On July 9, 2009, Bob underwent surgery to remove his prostate. “I was the most surprised person when I woke up,” he said. Although he had yet to undergo 35 grueling days of radiation to eliminate and residual cancer, his PSA is now 0.1, virtually undetectable, and he’s able to look back at it with some humor. “I have tattoos now,” he joked, referring to the aiming marks put on his body by the radiologist. “I can’t show them in public, but I can hang out in biker bars if I want.” Bob is still regaining his strength, hence his brief hiatus in his car last week-

end. But the “electrifying” feeling shared by both him and Trudy as he took his place for the Survivor’s Lap at last weekend’s Relay – and the camaraderie of the dozens of other survivors walking with him – drove home the need for those with cancer to share their burden, and the realization that there are many people who want to help. “I don’t think anyone can get through this by yourself, or even with just your family,” he said. “You need the support of other people, too, even if it’s someone you don’t know.” Bob said celebrating a virtually cancer-free birthday at the birthday-themed Relay For Life helped solidify his determination to get more involved in the event next year, and Trudy plans to also. “We’re not just dabbling our toes in; we’re going to jump in with both feet,” she said. Bob’s already active in his church and other charitable causes, but what he’s gone through makes him feel as though “a curtain has been pulled aside, and I’ve been born again,” he said. He hopes to pass along his message of celebration, fighting back, and survival on the same track next year. “I know there’s a value to life that I didn’t respect before,” he said. “I have a better understanding of the healing process of those who have had cancer. It goes beyond the physical healing to the understanding that God has given you life, and you have to go out and do something with it.” The 2010 Brentwood Relay For Life raised $188,000, short of the goal but, given the sad state of the economy, still “wonderful,” said Chairwoman Joy Benson. “This town comes through every time.” By way of expressing their satisfaction with the results, Chairwoman Joy Benson , Mayor Bob Taylor and Fire Chief Hugh Henderson followed through on their promises to shave their heads in celebration.

Grateful for the fathers Editor: As a Due Diligence clerk for Contra Costa County, I search for absent parents for Children & Family Services. The circumstances foster children find themselves in are unreal to me. At 52, I need only to walk a block to my parents’ home and see my mother “Maman” watering her garden and my father “Mamon” watching “Law & Order” or “CSI.” My personal interpretation of the law of relativity shaped my children’s steadfast demeanor. Simply translated, wherever my children were during their childhood days, rest assured there was a relative around to nag them. From mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, aunt, uncle, etc. up to grandaunt-in-law who is the wife of my mother’s second cousin, there was never a lack of solicited or unsolicited loving advice/guidance. My children developed strong personalities, having been exposed intentionally to frugal habits and the value of hands-on experience and self-reliance. Respect for all of God’s creation made my children unfazed by wealth and position. My daughter, Bianca, is a resourceful, fun-loving and self-assured individual incapable of a negative thought, while my son, Joshua, is responsible, considerate and mature beyond his age with exceptional leadership qualities. My husband, Walter, deserves a lot of credit for their upbringing, and I take this opportunity, this Father’s Day, to say thank you to all who played this important role. My own father, who, at almost 90, continues to be a pillar of strength. Vivid in my mind, he is the dashing soldier in crisp khaki uniform walking across a small wooden bridge in a WWII photo. Horst, the father-in-law I never met, who impressed responsibility in my husband not through words but through deeds. Only a 102 fever and a bus driver’s refusal to let him ride the Long Island Transit could make him miss one day of

Boycott bad environmental citizens Editor: Let me start off by asking a question. What would you do if you witnessed a corporation violating California littering law? Call the police? Yeah right, they’d laugh at you and make you feel real stupid for even bothering to call them. I often walk my dogs along the creek which runs east and west between Vista Grande and Hillcrest Drive in Antioch. Walmart is right across the street from Hillcrest Drive. This area accumulates a huge amount of garbage and trash. And there have been times when I’ve actually found huge clear trash bags filled with Walmart plastic bags. They appeared to have been from Walmart’s recycle-your-shopping-bag bins. How ironic for these to be found lying open in the creek. This happened twice. Both times I grabbed the bag and crossed Hillcrest Drive and handed them to the first Walmart employee I saw. The trash from Walmart and McDonald’s has now come to the point of ridiculous. Walmart is not a good corporate citizen for our community. Quite the opposite. I realize this doesn’t even come close to compare to the destruction to our Gulf Coast by the hands of the BP Corporation. But my question is: How long are we going to allow corporations to get away with this? We my friend, are the ones with the power. Boycott those businesses that have such little regard for the environment. And vote for those who aren’t in the back pocket of big corporations. You know who I mean. Debrah Nava Antioch

Defeat of F a shared success Editor: We have a phenomenal grassroots movement starting in Brentwood. It’s no longer business as usual. It’s what we’ve been saying all along – we advocate protecting residents’ property values and quality of living, managed growth, solving current problems instead of creating new ones, and most importantly: listening to the public. New development should be compatible with our city’s General Plan and beneficial to the public; not just developers – Brentwood residents recognized that. That’s the message we’ve sought to convey

since early March. You can’t ask to be part of our city by re-writing our General Plan to your specifications – which is a public process – or by threatening us, misleading us or trying to confuse the issues. It was never about the landowners; it was about their embedded development project. I want to thank Save Mount Diablo for its guidance, the tireless efforts of our local volunteers who put in hundreds of hours getting the word out, and the stanch support of my husband in pursuing my passion. This election was a demonstration that we all have a stake in Brentwood’s future, whether we were born here or moved here last month. Our group has maintained a positive attitude during this hard-fought campaign to inform Brentwood residents of the dangers of ballot-box planning. We want to thank City Councilmember Brandon Richey for recognizing and supporting his constituents, and in our efforts to reinforce Brentwood’s vision of development within current city boundaries and within Brentwood’s voter-approved urban limit line, faithful application of our General Plan and our future as one of the best cities in which to live in East Contra Costa County. As we go forward, we need to concentrate on incentives to bring business back to our town. We need to make better choices. Saying yes to every project is a recipe for getting whatever benefits a few instead of Brentwood as a whole. When our businesses are thriving again, the housing developments that have been halted or are in the works will be built – hopefully with better oversight – and property values will begin to see a recovery. We can maintain Brentwood’s high quality of life by recovering at a pace consistent with our needs, and with better infrastructure, service levels and other amenities, as required by our Residential Growth Management Program. Finally, what the developers never got is that we love our city: our downtown, our schools, our Farmers’ Market, our location here between the Delta waterway and Mt. Diablo, our family-oriented Playful City, our local businesses, our agricultural history and future, and yes, our western hills. We want the amenities of a thriving city, but we don’t have to settle for those things at the expense of our spectacular natural heritage.

time, and that is to stop the out-of-control growth. Mayor Taylor, Vice Mayor Stonebarger and Councilmen Becnel and Brockman all bowed down to special interests and not the will of the people again. I would like to think that every member of the Brentwood City Council heard the message from the sound defeating of Measure F last Tuesday and this has opened their eyes and ears to the message the people have been attempting to send for years. Stop the out of control growth and listen to the people, not the special interest groups. This is the second time in five years the voters have been given the opportunity to control what takes place with the urban limit line associated with this area of town and the message was even louder this time: No and stop the out-of-control growth. The hiring of Tom Koch has proven to be a costly experience for the landowners and developers. The misleading tactics that his leadership provided ended up causing more suspicion for the voters as to what was the real truth behind this measure in the first place and that closed the door on their program. It was clear from the start that this measure was being driven for one purpose – big money – and not to improve or keep our current quality of life within the City of Brentwood. The big money ($279,000-plus) spent by the landowners and developers associated with Yes on Measure F has proven once again to be waste of time and money. With big supports like Lee Hancock, Sean McCauley, Brian Swisher, Dafne Swisher, Annette Beckstrand, Rick Lemyre/Brentwood Press, Supervisor Mary Piepho, LAFCO Commissioners Helen Allen and Rob Schroder, Mayor Bob Taylor, Vice Mayor Erick Stonebarger, City Councilmember Chris Becnel, City Councilmember Bob Brockman, the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce and many more past politicians that were involved with Brentwood government, has proven to be meaningless to the concerned residents of Brentwood. The story line read: “Is it possible that all of these leaders could be wrong”? The answer to this question is very clear now: Yes, they are wrong! The people have spoken again.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Timing “We didn’t lose the game; we just ran out of time.” Based on a recent National Association of Realtors (NAR) Pending Sales survey, this famous Vince Lombardi quote can more than sum up the anxious feelings that 55,000 – 75,000 prospective homebuyers are beginning to have. For both first-time buyers, and move-up buyers alike, the June 30th expiration date of their potential federal tax credit is right around the corner…and Congress has taken notice. An amendment to H.R. 4213, a tax extension bill currently in the Senate, will be discussed next week in hopes of extending the federal tax credit for buyers who are already in contract to purchase their home. The extension will not “open” the federal tax credit to new buyers; it will simply allow buyers with circumstances outside of their control, who will not close escrow before June 30th, an opportunity to claim their credit. According to NAR President, Vicki Cox Golder, “This amendment does not extend the deadline for home buyers to qualify for the tax credit; it extends the deadline for closing the transaction from June 30th to Sept 30th. These are not buyers who just entered into the market. These are buyers who previously met all the qualifications for the tax credit, but find themselves at the mercy of a work-flow jam with the lenders or other delays and might not

be able to complete the purchase of their homes.” On top of “work-flow jam with lenders”, many buyers find themselves in contract on a bank owned foreclosure property (REO), or even more time consuming, a short-sale. Both types of purchases carry a HUGE unknown in the form of the actual seller. With banks seeing their inventory as just that and nothing more, the purchasing process can be a frustrating one for buyers across the board. When you’re making what many consider to be the largest purchase/investment of their life, and you have someone on the other end that punches in, punches out, and sees you as a number on their desk, the waiting process can be a brutal one. It would be unfair for you as a buyer to have met the eligibility requirements for the credit, done all within your power to satisfy the timing requirements, but then have to forfeit the credit because of administrative challenges related to the transaction that are outside of your control. I applaud Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Senators Johnny Isakson and Chris Dodd for bringing this issue to light…their timing couldn’t be better! As always, I welcome all questions and or concerns pertaining to real estate lending on my cell phone, 925-726-1444, or via email, tfreymortgages@yahoo.com. – Advertisement

Letters from page 16A used in the June 10 issue of another newspaper to describe the voters in Brentwood. I think not. The voters fully understood. Sadly, the Yes on F people underestimated the intelligence and the will of the residents of Brentwood. Furthermore, it would seem that the City Council is sadly out of step with the residents of Brentwood, since all but one (Brandon Richey) signed on in favor of Yes on F. Where exactly has the council been? A better question would be, where have they not been that they should have been since they do not know what Brentwood wants? The residents of Brentwood know exactly what they want. Just keep asking through the ballot box. They’ll keep letting you know. Shirley Mudd Winthrop Brentwood

Hail to the handful Editor: I would like to publicly thank Councilman Brandon Richey for his thoughtful leadership in the City of Brentwood. He belongs to a small handful of Brentwood leaders, past and present, who recognized Measure F for what it always was – an attempt to make a few people wealthy at the expense of many. Even if one were to give the benefit of the doubt that the numerous promises made by measure proponents were promises to be kept, logic prevails that it was not possible to rain those types of benefits upon the city without unintended conse-

quences such as overburdened schools, crowded roadways, lowered property values, empty storefronts or increased taxes somewhere down the line. The ever-expanding Yes on F campaign goodies were so over-the-top that I anticipated receiving any day amongst the glossy, full-color mailers, an engraved invitation from Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. Fortunately, the oft-cited observation from famed anthropologist Margaret Mead continues to hold true: “Never underestimate that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.” Brentwood, Thank You for your thoughtful commitment to protect our city from ill-conceived, deceptive plans. And, as the election season continues this November, please remember the only person on our present City Council who applied critical and independent thinking skills on this important issue and re-elect Brandon Richey to the City Council.

Fireworks fizzle, parade marches on

happens, they still have to call the police. The good news is we have all of this lined up for next year and think we can make it happen next year.” The other good news for those who still want to participate in a community event on the Fourth is that there will be a parade beginning at 1 p.m. around Somersville Towne Center, followed by a choir singing patriotic songs inside the mall. “We want to celebrate our nation’s birthday, but realize what dire straits the city’s in,” said Councilwoman Martha Parson, who is leading the effort along with Susan Davis, wife of Mayor Jim Da-

vis. “The fireworks effort ran into the police were not able to take care of closing streets and things for a parade. Susan and I were brainstorming about not closing any streets. We thought about what the East County Military Families do when they walk with a candlelight vigil around the Somersville Towne Center (on Sept. 11).” Parsons said the scaled-down festivities would be in the community spirit of the recent Keep Antioch Beautiful cleanup day. “The more the merrier,” she said. “The community can still celebrate our nation’s birth. Everybody can come

participate, whether being in the parade with flags and friends or watching and clapping.” For more information, call Parsons or Davis at 925-757-2020. Parade applications can be downloaded at www.art4antioch.org/docs/2010parade-application. pdf. The council’s vote was to cancel city support for only this year’s Fourth of July festivities. But Parson said that will likely be the case next year as well. “We are probably going to be looking at the same options, but will start now in planning for it,” she said. “Hopefully, next year we will have fireworks. I don’t think the budget will be good for probably another two years. Things are turning around, but it’s slow.” At the April 27 meeting, Councilman Brian Kalinowski noted that celebrating the Fourth is not an essential city service at a time that important services are being reduced, staff members laid off and dozens of city positions remain unfilled. “The Fourth of July display is nice to have,” he said. “Not every community has one, or a parade either. Some go camping. This is sort of forcing folks to celebrate among themselves with friends and family, which doesn’t make people less patriotic. “It’s a reality of where we are at. This is occurring during budget season. We have one person in charge of five (city) departments, and some exist just in name. I am not in support of the Fourth of July event in downtown Antioch – unless somebody wants to sponsor the $80,000.” Mayor Davis said, “It goes against my total grain and every fiber of my being to not celebrate the Fourth of July. But with the predicament the city is in, I agree that this is the year we postpone it until we are back on our feet a year or two down the road.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

ground. She might find herself living with a family of seven or a childless couple. Either way, she’ll be immersed in the dayto-day lives of people far removed geographically and technologically from her life in Brentwood. “I see this as a great, amazing opportunity to live as a native and help people,” said Loubieh. “I know it is going to be hard and that I probably can’t imagine what it will be like. We have to (as Peace Corps volunteers) immerse ourselves totally in culture. We go to church, we do the shopping and we bury their dead. I’m a little worried about death; it’s a daily thing over there and I’ve never lost anyone close to me or seen anyone die.” Loubieh hopes that taking along a few creature comforts from home will help ease the transition, and said that she plans to pack a laptop computer and iPod, as well as personal photos and a few special books. But other than that, the next 27 months will be a lesson in living light. “I’m definitely going to learn a lot about myself while I’m gone; like, should I wash my hair or the dishes?” she said,

laughing. “But that’s all part of the adventure; I can’t wait.” While in the Peace Corps, Loubieh will receive a monthly stipend to help pay for expenses such as clothing and incidentals, and upon her arrival back in the states will receive a $6,000 readjustment allowance. Peace Corps volunteers have their medical and dental care paid for, and receive 48 days of paid vacation. Loubieh said she plans to save up most of her vacation time to travel the continent or perhaps venture to Europe. Families stateside are provided with emergency contact numbers, and if for any reason volunteers want to come home, they’re free to do so. “The minute something isn’t right, either with you or if there is some kind of unrest in your country, the Peace Corps will pull you immediately,” said Loubieh. “They do an amazing job of taking care of you.” Loubieh admits that the prospect of leaving her family and friends for two years has been daunting (although her mother and stepfather plan to visit her in

Africa), but a part of her is also looking forward to meeting others who are as passionate about the program as she. “I’m excited that I’m going to be sharing my passion with others who have the same goals,” she said. “I’ve always been the hippy friend, the protester, the one in my group of friends who was a little different. Now I’m going to be with others who understand. I will always have my old friends, but I know I’m also going to make some new lifelong friends.” And when the adventure is over, Loubieh plans to go straight from Tanzania to Columbia – unless, of course, she has a change of heart. “As of right now I’m totally planning on going to Columbia and I’m really looking forward to that,” said Loubiah. “But I also don’t know what things will be like for me in two years. I know I’m going to change so much from this experience and I may not feel the same way or want the same things. I’m sure I will attend Columbia, but I’m still open to opportunity. My door is still wide open.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Although the lack of a sufficient police presence put the kibosh on a private effort to save Antioch’s Fourth of July fireworks, another grass-roots effort has made sure there will be an Independence Day celebration. The City Council unanimously agreed on April 27 to not provide city staff time for this year’s Fourth of July festivities, saving about $80,000 in the city’s over-burdened General Fund. The annual event usually includes a downtown parade, entertainment, food and a 20-minute fireworks display along the waterfront. A private fundraising effort led by former Councilman Allen Payton was launched in an attempt to save just the fireworks. “All of the things were coming together,” said Payton. “People were stepping up and providing all of the aspects of what was needed for July Fourth along with fundraising from some of the large companies in the area. The challenge was: we were not going to be able to get enough police. They told us we need 35 to 40 officers for a four-hour minimum overtime.” The cost for the officers would have been about $16,000. In addition, the private effort would need to pay an additional $40,000 for the other city staff time involved. While it was a tough challenge attempting to raise that amount of money in just a few weeks, the deal killer turned out to be that the city could not spare the police officers. “Even if we had raised enough money, there wasn’t enough police officers to cover,” said Payton. “We are down 20 officers and 10 CSOs (community service officers). They are already understaffed, and have guys going on vacation. We can’t use private security, because if something

Peace from page 1A stand much about health and they don’t know anything about their bodies and how they work,” said Loubieh. “Part of my job while there will be to empower them with education; to help teach the youth – and the whole community, really – to better understand how to take care of themselves.” Although Peace Corps volunteers are trained up front in their host country’s language, culture and health and safety issues, the volunteers’ living arrangements come later. “What they (Peace Corps) are trying to do is find out a little bit more about you (the volunteer),” said Loubieh. “What your personality is like, what you’re good at – things like that. Once the three months of training are done, then they place you with a host family, so until then, we won’t know where we’ll end up.” But one thing Loubieh is fairly sure of is that her accommodations will be Spartan – most likely a mud hut with a tin roof, no electricity or running water. If she’s really lucky, she’ll have access to an outhouse and not a mere hole in the

AD: historic year for Antioch High sports by Dave Roberts Staff Writer When it comes to high school sports, all that most people know and care about is football, which packs the stands with cheering fans for 10 weeks every fall. By that measure, it was not a great year athletically at Antioch High. The football team went 2-3 in league and 4-6 overall. But many other Panther teams and players in the non-marquee sports had outstanding years. “It was really, truly a historic year athletically,” said Antioch Athletic Director Will Whitney. “Hats off to our coaches. It’s nice having some talent like the Simarro twins and Dallas Butterfield and Evan Grimes. We have an incredible talent pool, that’s been helpful. It’s nice as an athletic director having a comprehensive athletic program.” One half of the Simarro twins, Kaitlin, was selected as Antioch High’s Female Athlete of the Year. “There was a lot of talent with the female athletes in our school,” said Whitney. “But the fact that Kaitlin was the league MVP (in tennis) persuaded the coaches to vote her way.” Simarro, along with her sister Meghan, also excelled in soccer and softball and were valedictorians. Grimes was selected as the Panthers’ Male Athlete of the Year after finishing fourth in the state in the long jump and helping lead the basketball team to the North Coast Section (NCS) playoffs. Several seniors received athletic scholar-

Butterfield was also in the running for Athlete of the Year, having participated in three sports: track, where she qualified for NCS; soccer, where she excelled; and football, where she was one of the few three-year girl

starters in the country as a field goal and extra-point kicker. “She kind of broke a gender barrier there,” said Whitney. “I don’t know of another team with a girl. That’s not an easy thing to do at the varsity level; that was pretty impressive.” Looking to step into Butterfield’s kicking shoes is another girl, Gianna Lucido, who kicked for the JV team and is the daughter of the new football coach, John Lucido. “She will be kicking for varsity next year, keeping the tradition going there,” said Whitney. “So that’s nice to have.” Another female standout this year was

Paris Imholtz, the starting pitcher for the softball team. “She’s a junior, and somewhat dominated the league with her pitching skills,” said Whitney. “I’m really impressed with her.” Also notable is Amanda Dwyer, a cross country and track star who won the Wendy’s High School Heisman Award for excelling in academics (she’s a valedictorian), athleticism and involvement with activities helping the community. Another standout for the senior boys was Anthony Cress, who was an NCS wrestling see Antioch page 8B

Gridiron grads advance the ball by Nate Smith Correspondent It’s not known as a football factory, but Los Medanos College has once again provided a springboard for local athletes looking to take their football skills to a higher level. Three recent Freedom High graduates, all of whom went on to play at LMC, are now set to take their game out of state after two seasons of local competition. Gonzalo Hernandez, a two-time allleague selection while at Freedom, will play at Culver-Stockton College in Canton, Mo., a small campus along the banks of the Mississippi River. The Wildcats, an NAIA school, brought Hernandez in for spring football this season to give him a head start on the coming season. Culver-Stockton also brought in a new coaching staff and more than 50 new recruits in an attempt to turn around a program that struggled to a 0-10 mark in 2009. Hernandez was so impressive in his debut at Culver-Stockton that he was promoted to starting right guard for the school’s annual spring game in May. Despite the adjustment to a new environment and culture – the population of Canton is about 2,000, and the town boasts no major convenience stores – Hernandez feels prepared for the new challenge. “Junior college gave me the chance to develop and play against some good competition,” said Hernandez, who looks forward to the chance of earning immediate playing time. “Now I have to get ready for another challenge, because it’s good competition there too, and we’re looking forward to turning things around.

“There is a lot to grasp with the advanced playbook, but you can tell it is going to work. I’m looking forward to being a part of that turnaround.” Also experiencing a huge culture change in his move to the next level is Jorge Magana, also a 2008 Freedom grad. Magana, LMC’s center for the past two seasons, has already earned the starting center job at Montana State-Northern, where he enrolled for the spring semester this past January. Unlike Culver-Stockton, MSU-Northern is a traditionally strong program in the NAIA, typically ranking in the top 25 nationally. Despite the program’s strength, Magana was able to contribute immediately in spring practice, fighting through some adjustments along the way. “It’s freezing there,” said Magana. “It’s 49 miles from the Canadian border, and I had to walk to workouts through the snow when I first arrived there. It was a huge change from Oakley and the Bay Area.” Despite those early hardships, Magana found himself in a position he had once only dreamed of. “We (Jorge and twin brother Gerardo) were small in high school, so I never thought I’d be getting paid to play. I just worked really hard the past couple years, and now I’m on scholarship and starting at a fouryear college.” Jorge’s twin brother Gerardo might soon be joining him in Havre, Mont., as MSUNorthern has also offered him a scholarship. Gerardo has one final trip planned, next week to Northern State in South Dakota, before making his final decision. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

The Battleground event serves as the Northwest Regionals qualifier for entry into nationals. Serrano and Blank are slated to compete in the Greco-Roman division of the national tournament, held July 18-24, while Baldazo and Johnson will be entered in both the Greco-Roman and Freestyle divisions. David is entered in the women’s freestyle division. Athletes will

arrive in Fargo six days prior to the start of the tournament, attend a four-day training camp, a one-day clinic, and then begin their journey toward All-American status. It isn’t an easy road. Each of these athletes aspires to step onto the victor’s podium at the end of their respective tournaments. “You have to be mentally and physically tough to compete at this tournament,” said Blank, the Bay Valley Athletic League’s heavyweight champion during the high school season. “You have to prepare throughout the summer, and stay calm so you can be mentally focused and have that edge.” Blank also believes that each member of his squad can earn All-American status, an opinion supported by the fact that each was a section qualifier during the high school season

team members include Howie Hicks, Devyn Douglas, Oscar Murray, Jeffrey Wexler, Peyton Wood, Jared Cruce, Max Peterson, Ryan Jackson, Richie Kabasinskas, Tommy Munson and Bryce Fountain, coached by Mark Murray, Buzz Cruce and Jason Peterson. Notable performances include a double by Wood and stand-up triples by Munson and Kabasinskas. Munson pitched with authority, striking out six in four innings. Jared Cruce fanned seven batters in three innings to help lead the Dawgs to the win. – Contributed by Mary Wexler

– and Baldazo an all-state competitor. Competition in the Junior Greco-Roman division is held July 19-20, while the Junior Freestyle division runs from July 22-24. The Women’s Freestyle competition takes place July 23-24. David, the lone graduate making the trip, has set even higher goals after establishing herself as the top wrestler in the state in her weight and gender classification. David, who has signed a scholarship letter of intent to wrestle on the women’s team at Lindenwood University in Missouri, has set her sights on finishing in the top three and competing for the national title. This competition also serves as collegiate preparation for David, who will join the Lindenwood squad that finished eighth nationally in its inaugural season on the mat.

Diamondbacks dominate Brentwood PONY League Pinto Junior team the Diamondbacks went undefeated during the regular season, winning an impressive 16 straight games. Boasting the strongest defense in the league, the D’Backs surrendered an average of under eight runs per game. Players Matthew Quesada and Andrew Silva will represent the team next Saturday in the league All-Star game.

Dirt flies at Speedway by Jack Menges Correspondent Antioch Speedway will treat fans to its premiere dirt modified race of the season when it puts up a purse of $20,000 – $5,000 going to the winner – Saturday night in a 50lap main event. Racing officials expect a field of about 50 cars to chase the rich purse. The distance of the feature race is twice as long as any main event this season over the one-third mile speedway. The All-Pro sanctioned event will match a solid field of local drivers against dirt modified challengers from Northern and Central California. Leading the local contingent will be the likes of former speedway champions Kenny Neu and Scott Busby. Both have piled up impressive records over the local clay track. Driving in from out of the area will be the father-son team of Randy and Ryan McDaniel of Hurst, late model pilot Richard Papenhaussen of Chico, Duane Cleveland of Plumas Lake and Jim Pettit II of Prunedale.

Ace from page 1B Williams is the last in a line of three Williams pitchers who will have dominated the Falcon softball diamond – and Bay Valley Athletic League – for more a decade by the time she graduates. Madison has definitely inherited the genes and hard work ethic that catapulted Hannah, who graduated in 2009, and Amanda, who graduated in 2006, to the top. Amanda’s arrival in 2003 turned Freedom, which already had a good softball program, into a national power. “It definitely wasn’t easy coming in as a freshman after what they did,” said Madison, who is known as Maddy. “Amanda is

World Cup from page 1B going to happen here as well. But the trick is how to get the word out there.” He’s been in touch with the local soccer leagues, done mass e-mailings, advertised in local publications, sent out press releases and gotten articles published. The problem, Kos said, might be competition from other events such as the Relay for Life in Brentwood and youth league soccer tournaments. As a result of the low turnout to watch the U.S. match, the 7 a.m. World Cup game viewings have been eliminated from the event’s schedule. And due to the low signups, the start of the indoor soccer tournament has been postponed until next week or perhaps later. Kos is hoping more kids will sign up when Pittsburg and Clayton schools let out this week. “Throughout this whole process I’ve had to be very, very flexible,” he said. “If I

my pitching coach. She’s the one I work with to improve. She’s been the one to help.” Madison is also playing with her father’s team, the Nor-Cal Outlaws, over the summer. While Williams was pleased with the season, she knows that improvement will be tough. “We really stepped up this season,” she said. “The freshmen will have to step up again next season. It really doesn’t matter who you lose; it matters who replaces them and how they step up and fill the shoes. I also want to thank the girls and the coaches, because without them we would have never been in the championship game.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

champion and qualified for the state meet. “He was a leader with our wrestling team that finished strong this year,” said Whitney. The AD is particularly proud that more than 120 of the school’s scholar athletes earned a 3.5 GPA or better. “All five of our valedictorians played athletics this year,” he noted. “So I was impressed with that.” As a result of so many players doing well, many teams did likewise. “For the first time in school history, our boys tennis team not only went undefeated but won the league championship,” said Whitney. “Our boys soccer team for the second year in a row won the league championship. They look strong for this upcoming year. I would say they are favorites to win league again; they may have a three-peat. I would not be surprised – that’s how much talent they have on the soccer team. The wrestling team won the BVAL tournament.” Nine Antioch teams qualified for the NCS playoffs this year, which Whitney said might be a first for the Panthers: track, girls tennis, girls golf, boys soccer, girls soccer, wrestling, boys basketball, boys tennis and softball. The athletes, of course, were essential to this year’s success, but so were the coaches. Track Coach Josh Tezeno helped not only Grimes, but two other athletes qualify for the state meet: Pitts in the discus throw and Shamawn Wright in the 200-meter race. “Antioch High School in over a decade hasn’t had anyone qualify at the state level” in track, said Whitney. “An impressive year for Coach Tezeno in his first year to have that number of

people go to state and North Coast. So we are real impressed with him.” Girls soccer Coach Scott Joseph led the team to a school record with 13 wins and qualified for North Coast. About tennis Coach Larry Johnson, Whitney said, “Wow, what a year he had. He had not only an undefeated varsity boys tennis team, but his girls finished second in league. And last year he led the girls for the first time in school history to the league championship in tennis. So that’s back-to-back championships (for him). The boys tennis team had an incredible year.” John Woolery, the boys basketball coach, has guided the team to three NCS appearances in a row, which is another first for Antioch. Wrestling Coach Brett McNair’s team “not only won the BVAL tournament, but he had the second largest girls wrestling team,” said Whitney. “We hosted a girls wrestling tournament, and it was a big success. He’s broken some gender barriers there. So hats off to him.” Whitney also noted that several girls teams donated gate receipts from some games to promote breast cancer awareness and for the Richmond gang-rape victim. “So, all in all, Panther pride is alive and well,” he said. “We had a number of historymaking events. We have a 55-year history at Antioch High School with over 100 league championships. Things look promising for next year. We have a number of programs that look strong, and others that are building in numbers and size and talent. I’m excited about next year for our athletic program.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Maintain your bone health According to Dr. Keith Randolph, technology strategist for Nutrilite, “It’s like a double impact: if you fail to eat enough fruits and vegetables, you are also likely not getting enough bone-building nutrients like calcium and vitamin D from all food sources in your total diet either.” Along with vitamins, minerals and fiber, fruits and vegetables contain plant-based compounds known as phytonutrients that research suggests provide a range of potential health benefits, including bone health. “The research highlights the importance of the variety of the fruits and vegetables,” says Randolph. “Everyone can benefit by eating fruits and vegetables that span a broad color spectrum.”

Here are some foods that provide phytonutrients for each color category. • Green – phytonutrients: EGCG, lutein/zeaxanthin, isoflavones. Key food sources: tea, spinach, soybeans. • Red – phytonutrients: lycopene. Key food sources: tomatoes and tomato products. • White – phytonutrients: quercetin. Key food sources: onions. • Yellow/Orange – phytonutrients: beta-carotene, hesperitin, beta-cryptoxanthin. Key food sources: carrots, oranges and orange juice. “Bone is an active tissue in the body,” says Amy Hendel, Nutrilite’s phytonutrient coach. “And fortunately, just like other muscles and tissues, there are ways adults of all ages can protect and keep their bones healthy.” Hendel, a registered physician assistant and health/

Most people are unaware that their bones play an important role in their overall health. Bones not only give the body a frame that let us move; they store minerals vital to the function of other life-sustaining systems. According to the Office of the Surgeon General, an estimated 10 million Americans over age 50 have osteoporosis – thinning of the bones – while another 34 million are at risk. The National Osteoporosis Foundation states that approximately one in two women, and up to one in four men over 50 will suffer an osteoporosis-related fracture in their remaining lifetime. Bone health needs to be a priority for people of all ages. One simple way to improve bone health is to make sure your diet includes bone-building nutrients such as calcium, Vitamin D and phytonutrients. According to a newly released report by the Nutrilite Health Institute, “America’s Phytonutrient Report: Bone Health by Color,” Americans who fall short in meeting their daily fruit and vegetable intakes are also likely missing out on other nutrients that contribute to bone health.

wellness expert, offers the following tips to help you promote better bone health: • Eat a calcium and vitamin D-rich breakfast. Start your day with breakfast foods such as lower-fat dairy, soy milk, yogurt and calciumfortified orange juice and cereals for bonehealthy nutrients. • Add color to your meals. Toss some phytonutrient-rich foods into meals. If you like soup, consider adding kale, broccoli or turnip greens, which also provide bone-building calcium. • Exercise. Keep in mind that diet alone will not keep your bones dense and strong. A weight-bearing exercise program that includes walking, jogging or running, and use of free weights, is important for bone health. • Meet the Daily Phytonutrient Goal. A good goal for most individuals is to consume 10 servings of fruits and vegetables daily. For those having trouble getting enough fruits and vegetables into their diet, natural, plant-based supplements which contain phytonutrients can help close the phytonutrient gap.
