Tax plan unlikely to Vigilant for warning signs impact Brentwood civic center project by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposed elimination of redevelopment districts as a way to address the state budget crisis might impact future projects, but it’s unlikely to hurt Brentwood’s financing for the civic center project. Redevelopment districts are designated areas where property tax revenue that usually goes to the state is returned to the district for re-investment. The districts have become a major asset in communities’ efforts to eliminate blight and spur economic development. According to Brentwood Director of Finance Pam Ehler, state law requires redevelopment agencies (RDAs) to incur debt for a project. The tax money that flows back to the RDA from the state is used to make payments. Brentwood’s $38 million civic center project, similar to improvements made to the Brentwood Technology Center to make it a temporary city hall, is being built with

bond money being repaid by redevelopment tax increment. Ehler said that just over $2 million in redevelopment money per year is dedicated to making those payments. But Ehler added that even if Brown’s plan is successful, it’s unlikely to endanger the civic center financing. First, many larger California cities like Oakland are dependent on RDAs and have already begun to fight for them. Also, Brentwood’s annual RDA revenue is about $6 million (down from a high of $8 million before the recession took hold), so the state would need to grab more than $4 million to even begin posing a threat to civic center finances. “I just can’t see it happening,” Ehler said of the state RDA tax grab. “It would stop most construction in the state. I’m not terribly concerned (about the civic center debt) but certainly any future projects would be stopped.” Those projects could include the North Brentwood Specific Plan, which is partially through the planning process.

Antioch says thanks to Huey crew The Antioch City Council recently met the men responsible for a whole lot of noise over downtown Antioch, and offered them their thanks. Wayne Terry and Brandon Carr received recognition for conducting a flyover of the Veterans Day Parade

last November in their fully restored, Vietnam War workhorse Huey helicopter EMU 309. They were accompanied by retired CW4 James E. Bundgaard in full period uniform. Bundgaard provided some history of the Huey’s service. The war-

bird “gives them an opportunity to see what it was like to be near and in the Huey,” he said. “Some relatives ask to sit where their family member sat. It is a therapeutic and cathartic experience for them and those veterans that were there.”

Mayor James Davis, who chairs the committees for the two parades, shared some of his thoughts as well, and explained to those present the importance of EMU 309’s presence and participation in the City’s annual parade.

IBANEZ RULING COULD BE HUGE An interesting court case was decided on Jan. 7 of this year in Massachusetts after years of litigation, and it did NOT go well for the banks. This could be nothing, or it could have a HUGE impact on our real estate industry for the next decade to come. The basics of the case is that it was a foreclosure that was being contested by the homeowner. The mortgage had been sold many times, as many are. It turns out that the lender had been, let’s say, a little sloppy in doing all the paperwork correctly each time the mortgage was sold. They were so sloppy, in fact, that many times when the mortgage was sold, they would leave the name section blank of who they were selling it to, since it changed hands so rapidly. It’s like selling a car multiple times, and just passing the car title along each time in blank without recording each transaction with the DMV. Saves time and also saves all those pesky recording fees. What happened in this case is that they kept passing it on blank from one investor to the next, and then almost a year AFTER the foreclosure started they finally tried to record the sale of the mortgage to the foreclosing investor.

This case went all the way to the Massachusetts Supreme Court. And they ruled that the lender did NOT have legal standing to foreclose since they did not have a perfected legal ownership right in the mortgage. One of the justices even commented on “the utter carelessness” of the banks in this matter. The basic idea here is that lenders have to prove they own the mortgage before they can foreclose. And in many cases, they are going to have a hard time doing that. It remains to be seen if other courts in other states will make similar rulings, but it’s possible this is the precedent-setting case to set the tone for future lawsuits. This does NOT mean we are all about to get free and clear homes. In most cases, the foreclosure can re-commence once the paperwork is straightened out. But that takes time, so this may lead to more delays in foreclosures. It’s also another reason for them to work on loan mods and short sales instead of risking legal challenges to foreclosures.

I was sitting in court one morning waiting for my case to be called. Before the judge called my matter, she heard the case of a man who was accused of not paying his child support for a significant period of time. His defense seemed plausible enough: He had, in fact, paid his support. The judge asked for proof of his payments. He stated that he was able to prove some of his payments, but not others. The reason: He had a garage fire and most of his cancelled checks were destroyed in the fire. The judge credited him for each payment which he could prove that he made; but each payment for which he could not provide payment, the judge ordered him to pay it (he would say, pay it again), plus interest at the rate of ten percent (10%) per year. Support obligations never disappear. They do not go away. They are not usually forgotten. And the state legislature has made it very difficult for the person that owes child support to become free of that obligation without paying it and providing proof of the payment. Other civil judgments fall off the books if they are not renewed between 7 and 10 years after the judgments are entered. Civil judgments are also subject to other equitable doctrines which could prevent their enforcement if too much time has passed since they were entered. But these defenses to the enforcement of support judgments are not available to those who have been ordered to pay child support. So, what should someone do who is ordered to pay child support? First, make

sure that you make your payment. Second, keep proof of that payment. And third, do something that very few family law attorneys will ever advise you to do–demand that the person to whom you have paid support file with the court (and record with the county recorder) a document entitled “Satisfaction of Judgment.” This document costs little to prepare and relatively little to file and record. But once it is recorded, it becomes a permanent record, a record which is the only way to prove that you have made all of your support payments (even if someone demands payment 50 years later). In addition, one could request that an installment judgment such as child support, be satisfied as of a certain date. That is, one may ask the other party that all payments have been made as ordered to and including a certain date, even if other payments may come due at a later date. But whatever else one does, that person should ensure that proof of the child support payment is retained until the satisfaction of judgment is filed and recorded. H.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters 78 The number 78 can be great news for a golfer, depending on where they are playing and the conditions they’re playing in. With the 3nd Annual Support Matters Troop Drive officially behind us – please feel free to call me directly with questions on late dropoff locations, etc. – it is only right to examine what Sports Illustrated has dubbed “the world’s most dangerous golf course.” Located in South Korea, and built back in 1972, the golf course at U.S. Army Camp Bonifas was the only form of entertainment and emotional outlet for some 700 troops once stationed at the otherwise slow paced post that is now manned by 50 or so troops. The links are as challenging as it comes; natural hazards such as water and sand have been replaced with military bunkers on the left and 18-foot high barbed-wire security fences on your right. Fairways are only 40 yards wide, and, to earn the title of the most dangerous golf course, a 192 yard Par 3 comes with the warning, “Danger. Do not retrieve balls from the rough. Live mine fields.” The number 78, as in a 78 percent loan-to-value, can also be great news for homeowners that used Federal Housing

Administration (FHA) financing. All 30-year FHA loans, regardless of down payment or equity, require an annual mortgage insurance premium which cannot be removed until two qualifications are met: At least 60 mortgage payments have been made (five years), with no late payments in the last twelve months; and, the home’s equity has reached at least 22 percent. Once both of the above qualifications have been met, contrary to what you might hear, you do not need to refinance in order to remove your mortgage insurance. In a case like this, the homeowner would simply contact their current lender, request an appraisal be completed in order to verify the loanto-value is 78 percent or less, then have the lender send the needed documentation directly to the FHA. If your average golf score is already 78 or less, simply put, I’m jealous. If you have any real estate lending related questions or concerns, or wish to be walked through how to remove your mortgage insurance please don’t hesitate to write me at tfreymortgages@ yahoo.com or call me directly on my cell phone, (925) 726-1444. – Advertisement

The U.S Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency, has awarded a $664,480 grant to the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District for the purchase of a new ladder truck. The truck will replace the district’s 30-year-old ladder truck. “This is an example of a great partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency,” said Fire Chief Daryl Louder. “The grant funding will assist the district in providing critical public safety services to the community.” Rep. George Miller congratulated the fire district for the FEMA grant. “It couldn’t have come at a better time,” said Miller. According to Congressman John Garamendi, “Contra Costa County residents want a fire department ready and able to handle the toughest situations, and with this federal grant, the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District will be able to add a desperately needed ladder truck to their team. I’m also pleased to hear that the truck will be made in America. We must ‘Make It In America’ to bring back manufacturing jobs – the backbone of America’s middle class. I want to thank Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano, Fire Chief Louder and everyone who made this truck a reality.”

“ I’m also pleased to hear that the truck will be made in America.

Congressman John Garamendi Three personnel will staff the new truck, which is capable of providing access to the seventh floor of a building to assist in firefighting and rescue efforts in the dozens of mid- and high-rise office buildings, multi-story multi-residential apartment and condominium buildings, plus multi-story mixed-use commercial/ residential occupancies located in the district. In addition to firefighting capabilities, the new truck will carry a multitude of specialized rescue equipment for use in extricating patients from heavily damaged vehicles, cutting and drilling equipment, water-rescue and rope-rescue equipment plus advanced life-support equipment for frontline emergency medical responses. The new truck is expected to be in service and operational by January of 2012.

Christian meditation workshop at St. Albans An introductory workshop on centering prayer will be held Saturday, Feb. 12 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at St Alban’s Church, 500 Second St. in Brentwood. Centering prayer is said by its practitioners to lead to a state of resting in God and consenting to God’s presence and action within one’s life. The tradition is rooted in Jesus’ teaching and was widely practiced by the Mothers and Fathers of the Desert. Many contemplatives throughout church history have written of it, including Teresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross, the anonymous author of “The Cloud of Unknowing” and Thomas Merton. This

form of silent, contemplative prayer gradually transforms and heals our relationship with God, ourselves and others. The workshop is open to all, no matter one’s spiritual path. Participants will be trained in the practice of centering prayer by representatives of Contemplative Outreach International. Six weekly follow-up meetings will be held to help participants make the prayer a part of their daily lives. A $25 donation is suggested; scholarships are available. For details or to RSVP, call Aris Rivera at 925-237-1369 or e-mail vicar@ stalbansbrentwood.org.

So in addition to its efforts to identify and attract larger firms that would bring jobs to the city, Brentwood will increase its efforts to attract smaller companies and help them grow. A shining example, he said, is Halt Medical, Inc., a Brentwood-based medical equipment maker that has invented a device designed to destroy uterine fibroids and possibly eliminate the need for hundreds of thousands of hysterectomies in the United States each year. Possible industries the city could also target include solar development and manufacturing, plus green/clean-tech industries, professional services, Educational services and agricultural enterprises. “Contra Costa County has seen

a dramatic growth in the number of home-based businesses and ‘microenterprises’ (employing less than five workers),” Greenwood said in his report. “These small businesses have an exciting potential to create jobs in Brentwood.” To attract companies large and small, Greenwood said the city must take stock of the obstacles arrayed against it, as well as the city’s strengths. Obstacles include the city’s relative isolation from major transportation facilities, a general unawareness of Brentwood as a commercial hub as opposed to merely a placid, rural community, and the continuing recession. Most of the city’s office locations offer less than 8,000 square feet, he added, while companies looking to expand typically need 20,000 square feet or more.

Helping to overcome those obstacles, Greenwood said, are Brentwood’s strengths: It’s a safe community with strong schools, a fiscally sound government that offers business incentives, and a responsive, business-friendly staff. To make potential employers aware of those benefits, an aggressive marketing plan for the city is being developed. Council members chimed in with their thoughts about what that marketing plan should include. Mayor Bob Taylor suggested including information about the “untapped market” of former corporate executives who have retired to Brentwood, and suggested that a survey be conducted to find out what specialties might be out there. Vice Mayor Steve Barr said Brentwood’s highly educated workforce

should be touted. And Councilman Erick Stonebarger said that while the city’s talent pool is important, it’s also important to keep moving, and not “plan things to death.” Greenwood said he would return to the council in the coming months as the plan develops. “Brentwood has tremendous future potential to attract high-quality employers. However, in the short term it must address several major challenges in order to position the City for future job growth,” his report concludes. “Over the next year, staff plans to develop several proposed programs and initiatives – including a comprehensive marketing plan, a package of financial incentives to attract retail and office development, and other business attraction efforts.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Their families and friends are recipients of that outcome too!” Victor began her Mary Kay business as an Independent Beauty Consultant in 1994 and became an Independent Sales Director in 1996.

Wolverines roll in big win over Falcons by Michael Dixon Correspondent The Deer Valley High School varsity girls basketball team began the season on a quest to win its fifth consecutive Bay Valley Athletic League title. Tuesday’s 93-39 win against Freedom showed the competition that the Wolverines are well on their way to doing just that. Deer Valley never trailed, opening up a 25-10 first-quarter lead and taking a 56-18 lead at halftime. Four Wolverines scored in double-digits, led by senior guard Darnela Jenkins and senior forward Kayla Alexander, who each notched 12. The top Falcons scorers were sophomore guard Elsa Ross and junior forward/center Aujenoi Thompson, who each netted nine. “They played well, they played hard,” said Deer Valley head coach Mark Anger. “We played a tough schedule and it’s nice to get a game that’s a little easier than the ones we have been playing.” All but two of Deer Valley’s 14 players notched at least two points. A big secondquarter lead allowed Anger to pull most of his starters. After playing the starters again for most of the third quarter, they were pulled for the remainder of the game. Sophomore guard Sabrea Coleman scored nine from the bench, followed by junior guard Kristine Fleming, who posted 8. Freedom’s league record fell to 0-3 (6-13 overall).

Freedom was handicapped by the absence of junior forward Adriana Lopez and senior forward/center Andrea Ortiz, both of whom were sidelined with injuries. That left the Falcons, already in rebuilding mode, with only nine active players against one of Northern California’s strongest teams. Still, Freedom played an aggressive defense in the second half, creating scores and even more scoring opportunities. “We didn’t give up. We were still running and still running the plays successfully,” Falcons coach Albert Nunez said. “We knew the outcome early, so we weren’t worried about that. But once we started running the plays, we started finding the open people.” More important than wins, Nunez is hoping this season can provide a building block for the future, as Freedom’s roster features only two seniors. He wants his players to understand the system better and not be overwhelmed when facing a team of Deer Valley’s caliber. Despite the final score, the coach felt his team is improving in that regard. The Falcons are set to host Pittsburg on Friday. Deer Valley, now 2-0 in league play and 10-6 overall, travels to Heritage to take on a Patriots team that poses a major obstacle to the Wolverines’ fifth consecutive league title. The Deer Valley players know that despite their two lopsided league wins, Friday’s game won’t be easy. “We can’t take anyone for granted,” said senior guard and captain Raven Fox, who scored 11 against Freedom. “We’ve got to

come out and work hard. If we take anything for granted and if we slip up, we lose.” Tuesday’s junior varsity game was no less friendly to the Falcons. Jasmine Forsberg scored 36 in a 76-26 blowout against Freedom. Jolleen Thompson paced Freedom with 12. Heritage 63, Liberty 57 Heritage continued its quest to unseat Deer Valley on the BVAL throne, topping rival Liberty 63-57 on Tuesday. Patriots sophomore guard Erin Asher scored a game-high 24 points and came up big on defense, notching seven steals. Senior guard Jenny Cyganowski contributed 12 points. Sophomore forward Ali Ramirez added 10. Liberty held a halftime lead, but Heritage came back in the second half to seal the victory. Junior guard Shaunike Lee scored a team-high 17 points for the Lions. Sophomore guard/forward Gabrielle Freeman chipped in with 13. The Patriots (14-5, 3-0 BVAL) host Deer Valley on Friday; Liberty (11-8, 1-2 BVAL) travels to Antioch. Pittsburg 58, Antioch 50 Junior forward Keshia Ward scored 26 points Tuesday night as her Pittsburg Pirates defeated Antioch 58-50. Sophomore forward Dominique Gordon netted 12 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. The Pirates (9-10, 2-1 BVAL) face Freedom on the road on Friday; Antioch (4-14, 02 BVAL) welcomes Liberty.

Panthers head coach John Woolery said the game had special meaning for Crawley, who was cut from the freshman team at Pittsburg and later transferred. “I felt good for him because it was a big game,” Woolery said. “Sometimes kids at this age, the moment gets to him and they don’t

Locals make big impact After months of tryouts, East Diablo Youth Soccer League Impact players Alyssa Schneider and Brielynn Tovani were chosen to join a pool of 30 players to represent Northern California in the National Olympic Development Program. Schneider, who has been coached by EDYSL trainer Paul McIlvenny for the last five years, has been a member of the competitive KonFusion team since its inception. Like Schneider, Tovani began playing at a young age. Prior to joining the KonFusion team, she played competitively with her older sister and was coached by her dad, Jeff Tovani, who is also a league trainer. The U13 Impact teammates currently play for head coach McIlvenny and assistant coach Matt Lord. The girls will represent two age groups in the Olympic Development Program. Representing Northern California girls born in the years 1997 and 1998, Tovani and Schneider will compete at one of the highest levels of soccer. Although the girls are understandably excited about representing EDYSL Impact, this unique opportunity inevitably incurs expenses. With the support and assistance of their coaches and the owners of Brentwood’s Sticky Chicken & Ribs, a fundraising event has been organized for Monday, Jan. 31 from 5 p.m. until close at the restaurant, 8335 Brentwood Blvd. A portion of all sales that evening will be donated to defray the girls’ expenses. – Contributed by Kim Vredenburgh

Bump from page 21A Despite the loss, Antioch remains one of the top teams to beat in the BVAL, a constant over the past few years. As a team, the Panthers finished third at the Freedom Duals meet, going 4-1. They went 3-1 at Folsom en route to a third-place finish. Most recently, Antioch took home the championship at the Windsor Invitational. The Panthers have beaten Liberty once head-to-head, also losing once. “We’re all putting in effort, 100 percent, going hard and pushing each other,” Hudson said. In his fifth year at Antioch after coaching for Pittsburg, McNamar is maintaining the school’s proud tradition of wrestling excellence. The Panthers have claimed the North Coast Section title three times, most recently in 2005, when they won both dual and team competitions. They’re now led by a solid group of seniors, including Baynes and Hudson. After last week’s match against Liberty, Baynes

As of Monday, the boys team has managed to keep their heads above water, going 2-11 in its league schedule, losing only to Deer Valley, the early league leader. The girls are also doing well, posting a 20-2 record. Their only ties have been against top teams Liberty and Heritage – and both of those were scheduled home games. “They’re doing their best to focus on the game but it’s tough not having any home games,” said girls coach Marc Crockett, who is pessimistic that the Falcons will play a home game this season.

Putting her heart into Wear Red Day by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

Local fitness instructor Allison Harris, who plans to put on a fundraiser for the American Heart Association, leads a class at Brentwood’s Delta Valley Athletic Club. Harris, who teaches the dance exercise program Zumba, was motivated to put on a fundraiser for the American Heart Association after suffering a heart attack four years ago. ally cleared her to fly back home. Allison then underwent nine-bypass open-heart surgery. “I thought I was doing everything right,” she said. “I’ve always been lean. I’ve always eaten healthy. It’s just crazy.” Almost immediately after surgery, Allison wanted to get back into her workout routine, but her body wouldn’t let her do much more than walk around her court at first. It was a slow road back to full speed, but now Allison is teaching three Zumba classes at DVAC and other places in East County. Allison now plans to use her love of Zumba as a way to do some good. In support of the American Heart Association’s

National Wear Red Day, she enlisted the help of a few other instructors and will conduct a two-hour Zumbathon fundraiser on Saturday, Feb. 5 from 3 to 5 p.m. at DVAC, 120 Guthrie Lane in Brentwood. The public is invited to come out, dance and donate to the American Heart Association, which uses the money for public health education and research, among other things. “It’s been a while since I’ve had my heart attack and I always donate to the American Heart Association,” Allison said. “But I thought, ‘You know what? This year I want to do something a little bit bigger than that.’” But Allison isn’t doing this only for

Taking every thing into consideration, Allison Harris swears, this shouldn’t have happened to her. The 48-year-old Antioch mom is an instructor at the Delta Valley Athletic Club (DVAC), a former track athlete, volleyball star and all-around fitness guru. She has taught spin classes, step classes, Pilates, sculpting and pretty much anything else that gets the blood pumping. These days, her focus is on Zumba, a dance fitness program taught all over the world set to Latin, tango, hip-hop, salsa and other kinds of energetic music. With fitness ingrained in her lifestyle, she never imagined a heart attack would become part of her life, but it did. While she was on vacation in Mexico, Harris woke up in the middle of the night on March 23, 2007, feeling a weird pain in her chest and arms. She didn’t know what was going on. Her husband, Andrew, gave her some aspirin to help the pain go away, something she believes might have saved her life. When Andrew asked Allison if something might be wrong with her heart, she brushed it off. “She doesn’t complain one bit,” said Andrew, her husband of 29 years. “She’s tougher than any guy I know.” That afternoon, however, a Cancun hospital discovered that Allison had suffered a heart attack. Her liver naturally secreted high levels of Lipoprotein(a), which had clogged her arteries. Doctors told her that a healthy level of Lp(a) – a type of cholesterol affected more by genetics than junk food – is around 10 milligrams per deciliter. Allison’s tests showed 204 mg/dL. After being kept in intensive care in Cancun for eight days, doctors eventu-

Allison’s grandfather suffered a fatal heart attack in 1976, something else that has been on her mind lately. She wants to use her renewed lease on life to support the American Heart Association and help others keep on running after a heart attack. “She’s incredible,” Andrew said. “I tell her to play the heart attack card and she won’t do it. She’s not that type of person. The reason she’s now telling publicly her story is because she wants to give something back.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

BVAL notebook: DV tops Lions by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

Deer Valley’s boys varsity soccer team pulled off a 2-1 victory over host Liberty on Tuesday night. Senior forward Aaron Huang and sophomore forward Omar Lesdesma each found the net for the Wolverines, who held a 1-0 lead at halftime. Lions junior forward Manuel Corona scored the lone Liberty goal in the second half. “I thought we were in control of the game,” Deer Valley head coach Nick Howliston said. “We’ve got some work to do in the final third (of the season). We missed some opportunities, but I think they’re generally playing pretty consistently.” The victory boosted the Bay Valley Athletic League-leading Wolverines’ record to 11-2-4; 4-0-1 against league foes. Liberty fell to 4-8-0 (1-4-0 BVAL). Deer Valley, which netted a 2-0 victory over non-league opponent Castro Valley on Saturday, travels to Clayton Valley on Saturday. Liberty plays Freedom on Monday.

The fourday camp is hosted by former pro player Ben Boulware and a staff that includes several other former MLB players, current MLB coaches and scouts, plus college and high school coaches. The ratio of players to instructors is about 7-to-1. The camp hosted more than 160 players from 20 different states and five countries. In the high school division, comprising approximately 55 players (16 of which were pitchers), Tyler was chosen as the best pitcher in the high school division based on attitude, coachability and pitching performance. In the three innings Tyler pitched, he struck out six, walked one and gave up no hits.

Liberty grads take to online airwaves by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

A pair of Liberty alumni turned their passion into a way for Lions fans around the world to root for their alma mater. Tom Dempsey of the class of 2001, and Melissa Edson, 2003, started LionsRadio.net, which broadcasts Liberty football and now basketball games on UStream.tv, a free video streaming service. Dempsey and Edson started with some football in 2009, but later branched out. With Dempsey on the microphone and Edson working behind the scenes, LionsRadio.net called all Liberty’s home football games this year and several of the home basketball games. Edson currently works the video camera to provide live video to viewers. It was something they tried during football’s Bell Game, but now it’s a part of their normal routine for basketball. “I see a lot of schools that have similar broadcasting situations with other companies and they end up having to pay a lot of money for it,” Dempsey said. “My whole thing is: I never want to charge Liberty High School or any other school that we cover one penny.” The two friends got the idea to start

Liberty alumnus Tom Dempsey works the mic at a Lions basketball game earlier this season. Dempsey and fellow Liberty grad Melissa Edson run the website LionsRadio.net, which broadcasts Lions games online. something like this while studying in the Radio/Television program at San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton. Dempsey also worked for KSTN, a Stockton-based ra-

dio station that has since gone off the air. One of their Delta classmates started a similar venture, and Dempsey figured they’d be able to do something like this

for Liberty games. Edson, who earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Sacramento State, hopes she can use this experience to build a career in broadcasting. “I’ve always had a lot of passion for my school but now I have more school spirit than I ever did in high school,” Edson said. “It means a lot for me to be able to give back to the school.” Dempsey, who played football for the Lions in his freshman and sophomore years, possesses a natural voice for radio and also serves as the team’s public address announcer. When players step onto the court for their pre-game introductions, Dempsey makes it sound like they just laced up their sneakers at Oracle Arena in Oakland. He said he loves being a part of what many students consider to be the highlight of their week, month or year. “For a lot of these guys, when they suit up for the last Friday of their senior year, that’s going to be the highest level of football they ever attain,” Dempsey said. “There’s no reason that grandma in Toledo shouldn’t be able to hear her grandson’s or granddaughter’s names called for what they love to do.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Ballin’ in the Bay tournament a slam dunk The inaugural Ballin’ in the Bay 3 on 3 Basketball tournament, which rolled into Discovery Bay on Jan. 15, was a huge success. The tournament was sponsored by The Boardwalk Grill of Discovery Bay and organized by Jim Mattison, Rob Ocon and David Bohannon. “We were so pleased to have 55 teams and over 170 participants in our first tournament,” said Ocon. “We had teams from third-grade boys and girls to adult men and women – and everything in between. It just shows the support that his community will give to youth sports.” The goal of the tournament was to raise money and awareness for youth sports of Contra Costa County. Partial proceeds from Ballin’ in the Bay were distributed to the Excelsior Middle School athletic department, and sponsorships have been awarded to basketball players in Contra Costa and other organizations. “Youth sports are so important to the de-

velopment of children, and with the current budget cuts, we need to look at alternatives for funding,” said Mattison. “This tournament helps provide a great opportunity for the people in our extended community to be involved with an important cause – youth sports. We have already had multiple e-mails and phone calls asking when the next one will be.” Ballin’ in the Bay is already busy planning the next tournament, which promises to be bigger and better. “We learned so much from our first tournament and we had many great suggestions that will be implemented at our next one, which will be more family oriented with the addition of activities for the kids,” said Bohannon.

here’s that special moment in every wedding, shortly after the groom takes his

place on the platform. Rows of heads are turned back, away from the altar. Many couples choose to eschew the customary limo and give an oldtime feeling to their weddings with a horse and carriage, something that Fancy Wheelin’ owner John Miller loves to watch.

The organ changes its tune. Cameras are loaded, aimed and ready, waiting for the beautiful bride.

Fancy Wheelin’ also caters to Indian weddings, called Baraat Ceremonies, featuring beautiful imported decorations. “It’s really a marvelous entrance when you get a 2,000-pound horse and the

And then, the wedding guests finally hear what they’ve been waiting for all day – the pounding of hooves. The expressions of delighted shock on the guests’ faces as the bride arrives in a splendid horse-drawn carriage are exactly what John Miller loves to see. Miller, along with his wife Cindy, owns Fancy Wheelin’, a company that provides such classic conveyance for weddings, parades, special events or even just a romantic night out with a special someone. Miller and his wife purchased the company in 2003 and have since thoroughly enjoyed playing a special part in a memorable chapter of many couples’ lives. The horses often bring a bride from her house to the church, but special entrances for outdoor weddings can also be planned.

Planning the day of your dreams SAMIE HARTLEY

C

ongratulations! You’ve found the right person to spend the rest of your life with and you’ve picked

a date, but now what? Planning a wedding involves going over a large list of details and checking it twice. But where do you start? First give yourself a pat on the back for finding true love. That in itself is an accomplishment, but now you need to ask yourself: who (will you invite?), what (will you wear?), when (should the ceremony start?), where (will the reception be held?), how (am I going to pay for it?), and why (did I decide to plan this myself?). Take a moment to breathe. Yes, you have a million things to do, but if you plan accordingly, you won’t overstress yourself and you might even enjoy the planning process. The important thing to remember is that it’s never too early to start planning your wedding day. According to most wedding planners, couples should spend at least a year planning their nuptials. This gives them time to find the right vendors and save money so they can stay within their budget. That’s the biggest thing to keep in mind – how much are you planning to spend for the big day and how do you intend to work within that budget?

Planning a wedding is a lot of work, so take advantage of books, magazines and websites to help you plan the wedding of your dreams.


JANUARY 28, 2011 A year before you get married, you and your fiancé should begin to brainstorm wedding ideas. Do you want to get married in a church or in a vineyard or in Hawaii? Do you want a large wedding with 200 guests or an intimate affair with only 20? Establish guidelines to work from by determining the magnitude of the ceremony and party you want to throw. Eleven months to go: Start looking for a venue for the ceremony and the reception as well as the officiant. It’s also time to choose members of the wedding party who will serve as your allies during the rest of your planning. And settle on the music and a photographer (and videographer). These services book fast, so secure these services and make a deposit if needed. Ten months to go: Think about what you’re going to look like on the big day. Do you want to lose some weight, grow out your hair or tone up before the ceremony? This is the time to start thinking about what you want to do with your hair and makeup. And decide on your colors because you’ll need to plan for flowers, linens and dresses in the upcoming months. Nine months to go: Time to begin finalizing that guest list, taking care not to leave anyone out, and begin looking for save-the-date notices and invitations. By now, you should also be searching for a caterer and conducting interviews and tastings. see Planning page 9B

very least you walk away with a business card, but you could find the perfect florist or gown during the fair. “Bridal fairs are a great way to meet a lot of vendors in one place,” Beckstand said. “You can meet several caterers in one place or you can spend several weekends checking out vendors, so it’s kind of a no-brainer. During a bridal fair, you also get a chance to get a read on vendors and see if your personalities match, which will give you an idea of what your working relationship will be like.” Bridal fairs come in all shapes and sizes, but the best part about A Bride’s Day Out is that there’s no entrance fee, so you can bring an entire entourage to help you wade through all the options. Some bridal fairs offer tickets in advance and charge at the door, while large expositions charge an entrance fee of up to $15, so take advantage of this free opportunity to get ideas – but make sure you come prepared.

If you get a stamp from all of the vendors on your bingo card, you’ll be entered into a drawing for a $1,000 prize and two $250 prizes. Plus each vendor will be offering their own raffle, so there are a lot of opportunities to score deals and meet with vendors.” The third annual installment of downtown Brentwood’s bridal fair, schedule for Saturday, Feb. 19, features 34 vendors. The advantage to meeting a baker or a travel agent during a bridal fair is that these providers will offer discounts to entice you to select their services over the competition. Most of the vendors at A Bride’s Day Out will offer 10- to 20-percent discounts on merchandise and services, so it’s the perfect time to start making plans. When planning your wedding, it’s important to shop around and compare quality and cost of services.

Guys don’t get to sit this one out, though. You might as well settle on what the groom and groomsmen are wearing, too.

You’re still keeping up with your workout regimen, right? Six months to go: Create a wedding website or blog to keep potential guests up to date on the latest information.

Also, remember those wedding attendants you so carefully picked out? Put them to work.

This is also the time when you should be putting the final touches on your invitations to give guests plenty of time to RSVP. Two months to go: Time to finalize the big details. Get your marriage license and blood tests, and if needed, update your passport. By now, you should have ironed out the details of the ceremony – songs, special performances and guest speakers. Buy the favors for your guests and gifts for the wedding party. One month to go: Almost there! The day seemed so far away, but now it’s coming fast. If you’re writing your own vows, you should be close to finishing them now. Attend several fittings for the dresses and suits to make sure everyone is comfortable. For those not in the wedding party, make sure they’re comfortable, too, and do your best to make a seating chart that will keep drama to a minimum. Don’t forget to check in with all of your vendors to make sure everything is good to go. A few hours to go: Relax. Let your attendants and family track down lastminute details and finalize preparations. This is your day. Enjoy it. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

According to the Fancy Wheelin’ website, Belgian horses “are believed to have the most direct lineage to the ‘Great Horse’ of Medieval times.” Percherons are also calm in the presence of children, which explains their widespread use at theme parks. For weddings, Miller’s company provides silver goblets with sparkling cider, silk flowers on the carriage that match the colors of bride’s dress, and a driver and footman dressed in tuxedos. The horse’s tail is also braided and adorned with a bow. Fancy Wheelin’ works with white, custom Anderson carriages. Miller said the company’s more than 100 annual events

In addition to a horse and carriage, Fancy Wheelin’ provides goblets of sparkling cider, silk flowers that match the wedding’s décor, and a driver and footman dressed in tuxedos. range from weddings to quinceañeras. John, a former engineer for Hewlett Packard, said Cindy has been around horses her entire life. When she saw an ad in the newspaper stating that the owner of the company was selling the name, the horses and the carriages, Cindy jumped on it. The previous owners were great to work with and gave them a few weeks to learn the ropes before setting them free.

“This beats working,” Miller said. “You get to be a part of people’s celebration. Everyone’s thrilled to see the horse, to see the carriage. You can’t find a more unique and fun way to make a living. You get to be a little part of peoples’ big day.” To get in touch with Fancy Wheelin’ for a wedding or other event, visit www. fancywheelin.com or call 888-326-2994.

Stroll from page 7B can easily single you out when a large group approaches a table. Bring a large purse or bag During a bridal fair, you’ll be collecting a lot of information and packets, so bring a receptacle to store the loot in and keep your hands free to explore other display tables. If you’ve got a bridesmaid in tow, ask her to hold the brochures from the places that you really liked so they’ll be easy to find after the event. Dress comfortably You’ll be doing a lot of walking as you explore downtown Brentwood, so wear comfortable shoes. And since the event is outdoors, make sure you check the weather report before you head out. Bring address labels All the vendors will want to know how to contact you, so save yourself time by bringing address labels. Add your phone number and e-mail address if applicable. Better yet, Beckstrand suggests attendees bring labels inscribed with their e-mail addresses to make the process easier. Speaking of e-mails … Your inbox is already overflowing with

Wedding Planner e-mails, so set up a new e-mail account exclusively for your wedding planning and keep all information and updates in one spot. Bring your camera Take photos of displays to share with your bridal party and your fiancé. The images will also help jog your memory about things you looked at. Take notes Bring a notepad and several pens so that you can take notes while you talk with vendors. Write down the vendors you spoke with and what you liked most about a display or exhibit. Have fun In case you forgot, your wedding should be a happy occasion and you should enjoy yourself while you plan. So take your time, enjoy the food, take breaks, and brainstorm ideas for your big day. A Bride’s Day Out is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in historic downtown Brentwood.

OBITUARY Giuseppe Quartuccio Brentwood resident Giuseppe Quartuccio peacefully passed to heaven on Jan. 7, 2011 in Walnut Creek surrounded by loving family and friends. Brought to life on March 31, 1931 in Monreale, Sicily, in 1969 Giuseppe immigrated to California, where his life was spent dedicated to raising three beautiful daughters along with the love of his life, Rosa Cassara Quartuccio. He was a master gardener/business owner who spent his career managing beautiful gardens in Los Altos, Los Altos Hills and

Sunnyvale. Retired for many years in Brentwood, most of his time was spent either with his loving family or in the garden growing fresh produce for the family to enjoy. He ultimately passed away doing what he loved. As an icon of the family, his honesty, compassion, wisdom, integrity and faith will never be surpassed and forever admired by all that knew him. Giuseppe is survived by his loving wife Rosa, three beautiful daughters and their husbands: Giuseppa (Michael) Rosalba (John) and Vincenza (Eric); nine grandchil-

dren: Joe (Giuseppe), Hailey, Justin, Mackenzy, Erica, Michaela, Camron, Rylee and baby Downing; two sisters: Maria Schiera and Giuseppa Lovecchio; several brothersand sisters-in-law; and numerous nieces and nephews. Services were held Jan. 11 at Cusimano Family Colonial Mortuary in Mountain View. A funeral Mass was held Jan 12 at St. Simon Church in Los Altos. Entombment took place at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Los Altos. Please view/sign the guestbook at cusimanocolonial.com.
