Police honor Volunteer of the Year by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer

Brentwood Police Department volunteer Curtis Wong (center), seen here with Sgt. Todd Orlando and Police Records Clerk II Lynn Dansie, was recently named the agency’s Volunteer of the Year.

When Brentwood resident Curtis Wong began volunteering for the police department, he started by pulling down old signs on city property. But the endeavor ended up pulling him into a newfound passion. Wong has done small but important tasks for the department for the past 10 years, and now the department is shining a light on his continued dedication. The longtime volunteer was recently named the department’s Volunteer of the Year as voted by members of the law-enforcement agency.

“Curtis has done so much for us,” said Sgt. Todd Orlando. “He’s so deserving of this award.” Wong stumbled into his position when a friend needed a partner to remove signs around town, and he has remained a steady force ever since. He’s a standout member of a 15-person volunteer team that aids the force with everyday functions, including clerical tasks, assisting with search-andrescue activities, photocopying, answering phones, DUI checkpoints, vehicle abatement, special events in the city and deployment of the traffic speed see Volunteer page 26

Changes coming to California WaterFix Local Rivals Share Title

by Tony Kukulich Staff Writer

A radical change in scope for the California WaterFix project has tunnels opponents calling for the state to scrap the permit approval and begin anew. In a memo dated Feb. 7, Karla Nemeth, director of the DWR, announced that WaterFix will be developed in two stages. The first stage will include a single tunnel and two intakes with a capacity of 6,000 cubic feet per second (cfs). The second phase will add another tunnel and a third intake expanding the capacity to 9,000 cfs. “The Department of Water Resources is trying to sell its latest WaterFix revision as a one-tunnel plan, but that is smoke and mirrors,” argued State Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D - Discovery Bay). “Their plan still calls for two tunnels. The new plan still poses the same threat to the Delta’s environment, agricultural economy and way of life. There still is no cost-benefit analysis or economic

Beloved Liberty music teacher retires by Aly Brown Staff Writer

The Liberty Union High School District (LUHSD) recently said goodbye to its longtime music teacher, who retired late last year. After a 37-year career as a choir and band instructor – nearly 13 of which were spent with LUHSD – Carey Hurst retired in December. Prior to retirement, the basis of her teaching philosophy revolved around giving children tools for life. “Music in itself is a discipline, and it’s fun,” she said. “You have to lead and be confident in who you are, and I used music as a tool to help kids build that confidence. When your confidence is boosted, academically, you’re going to thrive.” Over the course of her career, Hurst, who holds a master’s degree in instrumental conducting, worked for several school districts. Her longest tenure was teaching kindergarten through 12thgraders in Georgetown, California, where she spent 17 years teaching in its four schools. “Unfortunately, when there are budget cuts, the first thing to go is the music program,” Hurst said. In spite of that, she was successful time and again in developing or rebuilding programs wherever she hung her hat. The result was students who were

Hurst spent with LUHSD, she bounced from Liberty to Heritage to teach band and choir. She recalled taking Heritage’s small choir of 25 students and developing it into a program with three choirs and over 120 singers. A highlight of her time was working on the school musicals. “I think that No. 1 was working collaboratively with the choir and drama teachers on the annual spring musical,” she said. “The music making with the student musicians was awesome, and the team effort within the (Liberty High School) performing arts department was very rewarding. It is not like this everywhere.” LUHSD Superintendent Eric Volta’s own daughter was one of Hurst’s students and enjoyed her time in music. “Carey devoted herself to her students for a long time at Heritage and Liberty,” he said. “We truly thank her for her efforts.” While annual musicals, trips to Disneyland, concerts, halftime shows and more created a wealth of memories, Hurst noted her students as the center for everything she did. “Throughout the 37 years of teaching, (I found) pleasure that comes from meeting and teaching all the talented musicians and seeing the positive growth as they develop into a fine musician,” Hurst said. Hurst’s plans for retirement include a trip to Ireland and Hawaii. To comment, visit www.thepress.net

It takes a village Youth volunteer honored for work by Aly Brown Staff Writer

Village Community Resource Center (VCRC) recently recognized one of its youth volunteers for her positive impact on students. As a senior at Heritage High School, Destiny Barnes initially sought a volunteer opportunity at VCRC in order to complete her community-service hours for school. But once she stepped through the doors of the after-school program that serves low- and extremely low-income families in Brentwood and met some of the children, she was hooked. “I was interested in tutoring, because I love school,” she said when asked why she chose VCRC as her volunteer site. “I completed my hours a while ago, but I just stayed. I really love the kids.” Destiny shared stories of children in the program and those who made an impact on her. One foster-care child wouldn’t sit in the chair beside her for homework time when she offered him a seat. So Destiny sat down and began the lesson. Soon, the little kindergartener sat

in the chair. Then he scooted closer to her, inch by inch until he was sitting in her lap. “Ever since then, he and I became really close,” she said. VCRC Executive Director Kirsten Rigsby was inspired by Destiny’s dedication to the center. She described a young lady who would bring in new board games when VCRC’s became bedraggled and gift bags to each of the students during holidays. “She’s just an amazing person and student,” said Rigsby. “I thought there was an opportunity to celebrate what an amazing teenager she is, and to be able to recognize people like her in our community is valuable.” Embracing the idea, the center staff met at Mountain Mike’s Pizza on Jan. 29 along with board members and other volunteers to honor Destiny and present her with gift certificates. Rigsby said the VCRC was launched just over 20 years ago when the once-small community of Brentwood rapidly grew and brought with it gang violence and drug problems. Community leaders talked about ways to combat the issues, but nothing really happened until 1995 after a 15-year-old boy was killed in a drive-by shooting off Village Drive. The community recognized the need for a safe place for kids to be after school and built VCRC on the same street. At the time, it was more of a recreation center for arts and crafts.

Destiny Barnes (center) is a senior at Heritage High School and was recently recognized by Village Community Resource Center for her volunteer work. As the crime rate declined, the center morphed with the needs of the community and staff recognized the growing need for homework assistance, especially among children whose second language is English. “Our families that speak other languages have the ability to give their children a gift and often times it’s not presented that way,” Rigsby said. “VCRC encourages kids to take pride in and nurture their first language while learning English. And we couldn’t do what we do here without the help of volunteers like Destiny.”

els, so the department store gets paid. This money can then be multiplied throughout the economy, as each of those recipients turn around and spend more. Tapping into your home’s equity is a way to live a lifestyle beyond your current income, so it’s like giving people a pay raise. I am NOT suggesting this is a ‘good’ or wise way to live. I’m just pointing out that this increase in HELOCs will probably result in people spending more money, which is good for the economy, which usually drives real estate prices even higher. Yes, this happened last time. Yes, that ended in disaster. We can only hope that the new lending rules prevent the excesses of last time. Lenders are supposed to verify that borrowers can actually afford their payments. If you have questions about real estate, call me at 925-240-MOVE (6683). Voted “Best of Brentwood” multiple times.

I noticed a small article last week in one of the real estate trade publications that really caught my eye. It was talking about the projections for an increase in the number of HELOCs (Home Equity Line of Credit) over the next few years. The chart showed that from 2012 to 2016, there were 4.8 million new HELOCs, but that from 2018 to 2022 they are expecting 10 million. That’s more than double. So, why is this interesting to me? Well, let’s think about why most people get a HELOC. Maybe they want to remodel the house, put in a pool, put in solar panels, or they want to buy a car, or a boat, or pay down some debt. Nearly all of those uses will put money directly into the general economy. Let’s look at a typical bathroom remodel – the contractor gets paid, their workers get paid and they need to buy materials, so the local hardware store gets paid. When the workers come to the house, they may stop off to get gas in town, buy a sandwich, etc. Once it’s done, you’ll want to buy new tow-

n a sparkling Saturday morning, area residents, volunteer construction workers and local officials – including California State Assemblymember Jim Frazier, Mayor Bob Taylor and Brentwood Councilmember Claudette Staton – gathered in Brentwood’s City Park for a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the start of the park’s new gazebo construction. Located behind the rose garden, the gazebo will replace a similar structure that was taken down in 2007. Mayor Taylor expects the new gazebo will be completed by April 1. “The gazebo was such an integral part of the original City Park, and we all missed it when it was dismantled to make room for our beautiful city hall community center and to put in the park,” said JoAnne Klement of the Brentwood Neighborhood Committee. “Mayor Taylor has worked hard for the last few years to get the gazebo basically donated back to the city. And so today is our first day to break ground, and we’re all very excited. It’s going to be beautiful when it’s finished.”

Meet Lucy Lucy is a sweet little female terrier born July, 20, 2017. She is small but loves to play until she drops. Lucy is potty-pad trained but will require more house training. She enjoys playing outside with other dogs but doesn’t like being alone outside. She loves being held and will fall asleep in your arms. If no one is home all day long, she will need another dog for companionship. Lucy is still a puppy, so she needs a family who is willing to train her and give her a loving home.

Making mealtimes meaningful Coming together for a shared meal is a simple yet important way for families to bond and create memories with one another. There’s no better time than right now to bring everyone together around the dinner table – including your four-legged friends – for a delicious, healthy meal. The following tips can help make mealtime even more meaningful for everyone: Have the family help with the meal prep. Pick a recipe everyone can help prepare, such as build-your-own pizzas, to make the dinner both a bonding activity and a rewarding experience when you get to eat your own creation. Schedule mealtime for the whole family, including your pup. Your furry friend can enjoy sharing in the family experience. While gobbling kibble from his own bowl, he’ll be less tempted to ask for human food. No devices at the dinner table. Establish this policy to encourage kids and adults alike to talk, engage and bond with each other. This quality time spent in the company of family can

build cherished memories for years to come. Choose healthy options for more energy. This means working in plenty of fruits, veggies and quality proteins like chicken or salmon, sweet potatoes, lentils and more. These ingredients are also great for your pup and are included in many high-quality dog foods. In fact, the Nutro brand has launched its Nutro Feed Clean philosophy, which provides pets with dry recipes that are made with real, recognizable, non-GMO ingredients and allows families to share their healthy eating lifestyle with their pets. Whether it’s once a week or every night, coming together for a shared meal is a simple gesture that can help bring families – and even furry family members – together. So grab a plate (or bowl) and enjoy your shared mealtime with the entire family. For more information on sharing the Nutro Feed Clean philosophy with your dog, visit www.nutro.com or www.facebook.com/ NUTROBrand. – Courtesy of Family Features

Pickleball comes to town by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer

Local pickleball players have long dreamed of playing on courts in Brentwood. Last week, their dreams became a reality. The City of Brentwood debuted three pickleball courts overlaid on the Creekside Park basketball court last Friday, drawing more than 40 players during a three-hour drop-in session. The sport – which incorporates elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong – is played with a small wooden or composite paddle and a whiffle-like ball on a surface the size of a doubles badminton court. The net is smaller than a tennis-court net. “I am totally excited,” said pickleball player Trisha Meikle, a Summerset resident. “I play it over (at Summerset) too, but now it will be easy for my friends and family to come play. It’s opened up my life to whole new people, and I have my grandchildren playing.” At the request of a large group of area pickleball players, the overlay idea was pushed forward to the Brentwood Park and Recreation Commission, which approved the plans to paint three pickleball courts on the Creekside Park basketball court at a cost

of $1,963. That also included the portable nets, game balls and a fence to be used free of charge by the community during drop-in hours. The mobile game components are stored in a locked box on-site during off hours, allowing the continued use of the basketball hoops and court. There are an estimated 200 pickleball players in the area, including a 70-member group in the Brentwood Summerset community and a 60-person group in Discovery Bay, said Brentwood resident Monte Winterhalter, a United States Pickleball Association ambassador. “We are off to a great start,” Winterhalter said, as the sound of paddles hitting balls filled the air. Brentwood resident David Smookler agreed. Smookler had been holding free drop-in pickleball sessions on city tennis courts for about two years but was prohibited from altering the surfaces, forcing him to put down rubber markers that would often move when stepped on. Until now, the only other option for players wanting to play in Brentwood was see Pickleball page 11

Brentwood resident Ramon Young prepares to return a shot during a pickleball game at Creekside Park last week. The city recently overlaid three pickleball courts on the park’s basketball court, giving pickleball players a place to play.

to haul around all the necessities, including a mobile net and special tape to mark lines. “At times I got a little frustrated, but then I said that is the easy way out,” Smookler said. “(I thought), ‘Just stick with it, and over time (improved playing conditions) will happen.’ Anything that is good in the world is spread by other people.” Since sprouting up over 20 years ago, the game has caught fire and is now considered one of the fastest-growing sports in the nation. There are currently 2.5 million players around the U.S., and the number could jump to 8 million in the next five years. “(Courts) are everywhere except Brentwood,” said player Ramon Young, as he finished up a game last week. “We have to have courts. The game is great. The court is smaller, and it’s easier for people to reach the ball.” Winterhalter said he and fellow players will keep track of how many folks frequent the city courts in hopes of persuading city officials to one day build courts. “I think in maybe six months we can say we had maybe 3,000 people paying pickleball,” Winterhalter, said. “We can go make a presentation to the city council to show we have the interest – it’s out there.” The city is in the process of updat-

ing its Parks, Trails and Recreation Master Plan which will involve evaluating the need for dedicated courts, said city officials. For now, however, Winterhalter and many in attendance during the debut of the courts last week are just pleased to have an easy place to play. “It’s a huge improvement; we don’t need to mess with tape, the courts are here and we have good nets,” Winterhalter said. “That is all you need, right?” Drop-in sessions are held at the Creekside pickleball courts on Sunday, Monday and Friday, from 9 a.m. to noon; and on Thursday, from 3 to 6 p.m. The park is located at 1010 Claremont Drive.

Keeping cholesterol under control It seems to me that there are more and more ads for medication than ever before. Whether they’re about blood pressure, fibromyalgia, cancer, COPD or any other major or minor ailment, the ads have the answer for your issue. Senior Of course, they run orner the gamut of disclosures about the side affects, which in some cases are far worse than the original problem, but still, there are so many it is hard to keep track of them all. Marla Luckhardt I really can’t remember watching any of these as a kid, but then again, I doubt “The Howdy Doody Show” would have had Lipitor as a sponsor. After my annual physical and blood work up, I was told that my cholesterol was a tad high. A tad? Was I dying? Did I have to take medication that would cause bloating or headaches? I pride myself on eating well, avoiding red meat and basing much of my diet on fresh vegetables, salads and fruit, but I have to admit, on vacation last month, I indulged in a bit of what I call danger-zone foods. But it was so worth it! Was it possible that a few French fries and some chocolate ice cream could make

such an impact on my numbers? Much to my relief, the follow-up visit with my doctor, Hardeep Saini in Antioch, was much more positive than I had worried about. There are different types of cholesterol. LDL, which is the bad kind, and HDL, which is the good one and is needed for a healthy body and triglycerides. A good number for total cholesterol is under 200, but that should include no more than 130 of your LDL and over 40 for your HDL. According to Saini, these numbers are merely a part of the overall picture for cholesterol awareness and its effect on your health. Taking many factors into consideration such as blood pressure, body weight, level of activity, smoker or nonsmoker, intake of alcohol and amount of aerobic exercise per week are very pertinent to the entire picture. Many people with heart disease or diabetes may have high triglyceride levels. Elevated triglycerides can be caused by several factors and, with certain lifestyle changes, can be altered dramatically, says Saini. Your doctor may prescribe medication, but making these changes can help tremendously in avoiding the need for drugs. Cholesterol comes from two sources. The liver generates most of what you need, and the rest you get from an animal-based diet such as meat, poultry and full-fat dairy products, also known as dietary cho-

lesterol. These foods are high in saturated and trans-fat, causing your liver to make more cholesterol than it otherwise would. For some people, this added production means they go from a normal cholesterol level to one that’s high and unhealthy. Some tropical oils, such as palm oil, palm kernel oil and coconut oil, can trigger your liver to make more cholesterol. These oils are often found in baked goods. Cholesterol circulates in the blood. Together with other substances, it can form a thick, hard deposit that narrows the arteries and makes them less flexible. This condition is known as atherosclerosis. If a clot or nodule forms and blocks a narrowed artery, a heart attack or stroke can result. Testing your levels is important, especially for seniors who should have it done every six months. If your doctor is monitoring a rise in your LDL numbers, you may be required to do it a little more often if the numbers continue to rise. Saini suggests several ways to reduce

your LDL or “lousy” cholesterol. Exercise is important. Even if your mobility is limited, there are things you can do safely in a chair. Your diet-making decisions are crucial to heart health. Avoid fatty foods and high carbohydrates. Limit sugar and processed food whenever possible and eat lots of fresh produce. Dress your salads lightly, deleting or minimizing the creamy and cheese-based options. Add avocado, nuts, seeds and olive or canola oil to your diet as they contain the good fats that add to your HDL levels. Remember, they are also high in calories, so moderation is important. Increase your daily fiber intake, aiming for at least 30 grams, of which at least 10 grams are soluble fiber found in oats, fruits, vegetables beans and barley. Read labels and always choose natural foods over canned or premade. There are numerous websites and books that list certain foods to avoid and which ones are good for you. Taking charge of just these few things can be lifesaving. High cholesterol is reversible if not ignored too long, says Saini. A fasting blood test will determine your levels in milligrams per deciliter of blood. Discuss these results and other factors with your doctor, and keep on top of your own healthy numbers!

OBITUARIES Marian Louise Murray

July 6, 1935 – Feb. 8, 2018 Marian Louise Murray died peacefully at her home in Brentwood surrounded by family. She was 82. Marian was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. After graduating from Fenger High School, she attended the University of Illinois – Urbana-Champaign, where she was a member of Zeta Tau Alpha. Marian moved to California in 1962 with her then husband Rob and their four children. After arriving in California, Marian became involved with the philanthropic group, American Women’s Volunteer Service (AWVS). During her seven years of service with AWVS, Marian served twice as its president. Marian was also an avid bowler in her younger years and often helped her team achieve championship status. After raising her children, Marian went back to work in the field of accounting. She retired in the 1990s from her position as Comptroller at Florida Tile and moved to Brentwood. To keep busy after retirement, Marian worked for many years as a tax preparer at H&R Block and also served as an administrative assistant at the Brentwood Press. Marian is survived by her sons, Gregg (Maria) Murray of Texas and Brad (Felon) Murray of Alameda; daughter, Karen (Paul) Rarey of Brentwood; daughterin-law, Debbie Murray of Santa Clara;

Teresa Ferreira Aguiar Rocco

grandchildren, Mark Jr., Jacob, Anthony, Carl, Elisabeth and Katie Murray, Anthony Sell, Clint, Travis and Jacque Rarey, Ray Allison, Daniel Caldwell and Dennis Burns; and many great-grandchildren. She was predeceased in life by her son, Mark Murray Sr., and her sister, Carol Harrison. Family and friends are invited to attend her Celebration of Life at the Brentwood Community Center, 35 Oak St., on Feb. 24, at 3 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Hospice East Bay – 3470 Buskirk Ave., Pleasant Hill, California, 94523 (925-887-5678).

Sept. 2, 1944 – Feb. 5, 2018 Teresa was born Sept. 2, 1944, in Viseu, Portugal, the third child of Lourenco and Maria Aguiar. She had an older sister and has an older brother and two younger brothers. Her father had relatives in the Bay Area, and in November 1953, he and his oldest son, Manuel, traveled to see them and explore the possibilities of immigration. This proved to be a good option, and in 1955 he brought his family over and settled in the East Bay community of Hayward. Teresa and her sister, Ana, were placed in the same school grade to facilitate their learning of English. They graduated together from Sunset High School in Hayward in June 1963. A few years later, a girlfriend brought Teresa along for a blind date, and it was at that time she met her future husband Al Rocco. Al was from New York and served in the Navy during the Vietnam War from 1962 to 1966. They were married in Hayward on Aug. 14, 1966. After Al was released from service, the couple lived in various locations in New York, Arizona and California. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in

2016 and agreed that the marriage apparently worked. During these years Teresa worked at various jobs as an administrative assistant and Al was employed with I.B.M. Al retired in 1997, and in 1998, the couple moved from San Jose to Brentwood, California. Teresa enjoyed constructing jigsaw puzzles and playing card games with friends. She and Al were fortunate in being able to travel extensively within the United States and also in Europe, especially enjoying their trips to Portugal and Monaco. Teresa was placed on kidney dialysis for the last seven years. That process gradually took its toll and led to associated medical problems. She passed away the evening of Feb. 5 at the Kaiser Hospital in Antioch, California. She was 73 years old. Teresa is survived by her husband, Al Rocco; her three brothers, Manuel, Larry and Frank and their extended families – all living in the greater Bay Area; and her sister-in-law, Nancy Rocco Puckett from Tucson, Arizona. Her sister, Ana, passed away in 1996. Burial will be at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon, California. Please donate to the National Kidney Foundation in Teresa’s name.

Dreaming of Olympic glory Our family enjoys watching the Winter Olympics. The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat never gets old. We cheer on Team USA, but some of those male speed skaters from the Netherlands are pretty cute. My favorite Hangin’ in sport is ice dancing, and some of the here routines this year have brought me to tears. Then again, I cried at “The Pokemon Movie,” but I do get wrapped up in each performance. Clapping when they Vicki land a triple toe loop McKenna and cringing when they fall. Even then I revel at their ability to get back up, brush the snow off their butts and complete the program. I had figure-skating dreams when I was younger. I learned how to skate when I lived in Chicago. The neighborhood pond would freeze over, and we would spend hours on the ice. I learned a lot of tricks and could even skate backward! My brother played hockey with his friends. Sadly, I hung up my skates when we moved to California. When the ice rink opened at The Streets of Brentwood, I thought about giving it a try again, but at my age I could snap an ankle or break a hip! My figure-skating dreams are behind me, and I now leave the skating to my kids. I drop them off at the rink and head to Victoria’s Secret.   We also enjoy watching snowboarding, a sport I have never tried. My kids have all done it a few times, but like most activities that involve snow, they are harder than you think. Oh yeah it looks easy, especially when you see a 3 year old whizzing down the mountainside mastering all kinds of tricks, but slap one of those slippery boards onto your boots and try to remain standing. Or even more difficult, try getting back up after you fall! The first time my kids tried it, I watched them from the comfort of my cozy seat by the fire pit drinking in the warm sun and a cold beer. Yeah, I really like snowboarding! In fairness they eventually did get the hang of it, but I don’t see any future Shaun Whites in our family.

of dollars. Add goggles, gloves, boots, snowboards and pricey sunscreen for five kids, and you’re going to be paying that off for years! Hey, the important thing is you look cool. Some of the Olympic events are truly painful to watch. Take mogul skiing for instance. How do their kneecaps not literally pop right out of their legs? It just looks like the most horrific thing you can do to your poor knees. I have to ice mine just watching them! I guess when you take up that sport, it’s a given that one day you’re going to need a double knee replacement. I’m pretty sure orthopedic surgeons invented this event. One sport I just don’t get is curling. How is this a sport? It looks like a cross between bowling and scrubbing your kitchen floor. Now that I think of it, I would be awesome at curling! Where can I get one of those scrubbers or a pair of those slip-resistant shoes? What is also amusing is that the teams all look like married couples doing chores on a Saturday, complete with eye-rolling and bickering. Where is Dr. Phil? I do find it strangely relaxing to watch, however. Maybe it’s the way that big stone that looks like a tea kettle glides down the ice. Maybe it’s because I am Swedish and have untapped curling skills somewhere deep down inside me. Maybe Maury and I could be the next great curling team! But I am insisting he do the scrubbing. Well, we are only one week into the Winter Games with a lot more drama and Olympic moments yet to come. I will look on in awe at these truly amazing Olympians pushing their physical and mental limits, setting records and making their mark in history after training for most of their lives to get to this point! From the comfort of my new couch, I will raise a glass of wine and toast to this elite group to which I too belong. Hey, I AM wearing a FitBit, ok? Go Team USA!  To comment, visit www.thepress.net

OPINION

Letters Restoring faith in humankind

Editor: I had an experience at Winco Foods in Brentwood I would like to share.   I went there with my daughter and her 6-month-old baby recently. My daughter is a young mother doing her best to provide for her baby. She completed her shopping and got in line. My daughter realized she had forgotten something and ran to get it while I finished unloading her cart and watched the baby. By the time she got back, her order was nearly finished being rung up. I looked up and could see panic on her face.   She looked at me and said, “Mom, it’s over $100 already, and he’s not even done. I only have $70.”   I could tell she was freaking out a little inside, because she knew she had to stop the checker and have him start taking stuff off. We started to assess the things on the counter and apologetically started giving them to the cashier to remove from her order. She was so humiliated and embarrassed. We looked over the food trying to figure out what else to get rid of. It was all baby food, baby cereal, meat, veggies and fruits and milk. NO JUNK.   The checker stopped us and said, “I know how you feel. I’ve been there. I would like to pay for the groceries you don’t have money for.”   We were stunned. I don’t think it even processed for a minute. My daughter very graciously said she couldn’t accept his generous offer. He insisted.  The lady in line in back of us looked at my daughter and said, “Accept his blessing.”  So she humbly did. She started crying, I was crying, the lady behind us was crying, the couple next to us was crying. It was so touching.   The young checker called over someone I’m assuming was a manager. She suspended the transaction and took over his register. He took us over to customer service, where they retrieved our order and accepted the $70 in cash my daughter had. He then took his wallet out of his pocket and paid for the remaining $31.64 with his own debit card. We thanked him and hugged him and left the store in shock.   Faith in humanity restored. All I know about this young man is the name on his nametag was Jevon, and he works in the

Dreamers aren’t sucking welfare

Editor: In a letter printed in the Feb. 2 edition of The Press, Barbara Byer implied that the Dreamers were all sucking welfare and tax money away from good Americans, and that democrats and Hollywood stars should pony up and “take them home and support them.” This is not only a narrow-minded bigoted opinion, but it is totally wrong. The Dreamers, who number somewhere between 800,000 and 1 million people, are now mostly in their early adulthood. They have been raised in the United States, educated in the United States, and – wait for it – WORK AND PAY TAXES IN THE UNITED STATES. The net positive cash flow to state and federal governments are in excess of $1 billion per year. Let me state that again: The Dreamers generate more than $1 BILLION in tax revenue for state and federal coffers per year. Doesn’t sound to me like they need to be adopted and supported by any democrats or Hollywood stars. This “they’re all on welfare and sucking up our taxpayers money” misconception is just one of many of the untruths regarding the incredibly complex immigration issue. There are no simple answers or solutions. Properly handled, the solution to the immigration issue could show the world the real greatness of our country. On the other hand, if we accept the tripe that flows out of the White House about rapists, murderers and gang members, then we are all fools, and the world community will lose what little respect they have left for us. The choice is ours to make. We make that choice in the voting booth. Right now, ICE seems to be incapable of finding any rapists, murders, gang members or “bad hombres.” So they seem to be concentrating on deporting longtime productive members of our society or breaking up families so that the mother or the father can be deported. ICE is the new Gestapo. Bill Sumner Brentwood

A huge thank-you to Liberty Idol helpers

Editor: On behalf of the 2017-2018 leadership class, I would like to thank the following businesses and individuals for their continual support of the Liberty High School leadership class and the traditions that make Liberty great! This year’s 16th annual Liberty Idol competition successfully raised over $2,500 for the CCCOE transition program’s garden, which was recently vandalized. It is our hope that they can use these funds to replant what was lost. First, we would like to thank Jen Gallego and Deborah Spinola at Beyond the Terrace for their generous donation of

bouquets for our organizers and winner, Tori Gregory! This new local business is already graciously giving back to local schools, and we are very appreciative. Additionally, we would like to thank Brentwood Florists and Gifts for the donation of flowers for our technical crew and judges. We have worked with Brentwood Florists and Gifts for years, and they have always provided such great product with a smile! Additionally, I would like to thank the following individuals for their work on the Liberty Idol competition: Crystal Cummings, for technical advising and arrangement of the group song; Patrick Olsen, Caden Lewis, Patrick Schneider and Cameron McNeely, who created and edited the Liberty Idol reject video; Valerie Austin and the Liberty cafeteria staff for creating the Liberty Idol breakfast; Melissa Hatlen, Kevin Meyer, Tony Ramirez, and Paul Taylor, who served as judges; our technical crew, Jarrett Monseff, Treavor Jacobs-Fulcher, Payton Homer and Logan Maher; the night’s organizers, Hope Bentancourt, Gabby Brodowski, Allie Cone, Emily Eaton and Turner Judson; and finally, Liberty administrators, Heather Harper, Veronica Polk, Carl Moise, Mike Burstein and Scott Hansen. Since 2003, the students within the Liberty leadership program have consciously made an effort to give back to the community of Brentwood with the funds raised from Liberty Idol. However, they could not have done so without the support of the Brentwood, Byron and Discovery Bay communities at large. Thank you for continually supporting these endeavors with your attendance. We look forward to seeing another large crowd next year! Summer Rodriguez Director of student activities Liberty High School

Bart parking: One size does not fit all

Editor: At age 17, after interviewing hundreds of renowned thinkers, Nikhil Goyal wrote a book called, “One Size Does Not Fit All.” It offers a prescription to transform the American educational system. I don’t claim to be as smart as that young man, but I’d like to borrow the title to his book and apply it to BART parking. Here’s why... As a BART director in Contra Costa County, most of my constituents depend on their cars. They have a very different commute experience than my colleagues whose constituents live in more transit- and pedestrian-friendly areas. Consequently, the solutions to help my constituents connect with BART may be different than those of some of my colleagues. In January, BART staff made a presentation to the board entitled “BART’s Parking Program: Update and Discussion.” We board members learned that BART’s revenue from parking has increased from under $5 million in 2003 to $35 million in 2017. BART has a total of 48,000 parking spaces at 34 parking facilities. We have a system-wide wait-list total of 38,000 customers. Staff presented some possible solutions

to dealing with easing the overcrowding in our existing lots. Those ideas included demand-based pricing and variable pricing. These are fine ideas for consideration, but what about parking expansion? So I decided to do what young Nikhil did and speak with some pretty smart thinkers in my district. I contacted several local business owners about parking at BART. They asked, “Why is BART just trying to manage the overcrowding and not capturing the revenue that could be generated by creatively accommodating the people whose names are on the wait-list?”   As a director who represents autodependent riders, I think they are right. Let’s assume the 38,000 names on the wait-list contains duplications, and that there are, say, 16,000 potential riders who are willing to pay parking fees to get a spot. That could increase our parking revenue to as high as $54 million – a $19 million per year increase. So why aren’t we looking at solutions to find more places to park and charging for those additional spots, along with better managing the existing spots that we have now? Why not create satellite parking lots served by free shuttle buses? Why not partner with area businesses, local governmental agencies and others to use adjacent and existing parking more efficiently?  I believe each of these ideas merits further discussion, and I look forward to a robust exchange of ideas when this item returns to the board. I am sure that there are other ideas that we should explore, but as I said at the board meeting, the solution to overcrowded parking cannot be a ‘one size fits all.’ The needs of auto-dependent stations are different than the needs of stations in more urbanized parts of the district. While the solutions may be different, the differences should be respected. Joel Keller BART Board member

Goodwill not a good idea

Editor: Who thought this was a good idea? I’m all for helping people in need, but in adding a (Goodwill) facility that will provide food, jobs, clothing and medical attention, you are telling homeless, “Here is the place to live.” This is a residential community where everyone commutes to a job. There is no need for this here. The transients that have come here should be relocated to an area where they can find work and shelter instead of them making tent cities off the (Highway) 4 bypass (near) the trees or under our bridges in residential communities off of jogging trails in the heart of Brentwood. Just the other day, I was with my family riding bikes and rode past three homeless making homes near the trail. One even was asleep on the dirt on the trail. Unacceptable, in my opinion, and this is how Antioch got started... Mark my words, Brentwood will become a slum just as Antioch has become. This is something you don’t want here. As a kid, I watched Antioch (change) from a great place to a high-crime place ... Time to move. Joseph Razmek Brentwood

Patriots clinch share of BVAL crown by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer

The Heritage girls’ soccer team set a goal at the beginning of the season: to win the Bay Valley Athletic League title. Last week, the Patriots’ hopes were realized. Heritage (12-5, 8-2) came back from a 1-0 deficit to knock off Liberty (13-6-2, 8-2) and clinch a share of the league title with the Lions. “I couldn’t be more proud of the heart, the resiliency of our players,” said Heritage coach Gary Lafleur. “They showed true grit. We haven’t had that many opportunities to be in this situation, and we were a little nervous to start off the game, but I saw their growth, maturity and overall composure.” The Patriots’ winning goal came when Fiona Valdillez’s free kick bounced off the hands of Liberty goalkeeper Kaelyn Adams to the feet of Cheryl Salgado, who deposited it in the net with about 6 minutes left to give Heritage the 2-1 win. “It felt amazing,” Salgado said of the score. “I wanted to go in there, but I didn’t know what was going to happen, so I just ran in for it, and it ended up going in.” Not far away, LaFlour realized the team’s hard work had paid off. The Patriots had practiced that set piece many

times before, hoping it would play out like it did. “We knew sometime it was going to come in our favor,” he said. “Sure enough, it happened exactly how we planned it.” The late goal capped off a back-andforth game between the two elite squads. Liberty’s Taty Elsea rifled in a shot from about 34 yards out early in the second half to break a scoreless tie, but Heritage answered with about 12 minutes left

when Susanna Garcia took a ball off the foot of Jenae Packard and put it in the back of the net. “It was in the air, I turn around, see the ball at my feet and shoot it and see it going in,” Garcia said of the goal. “I can’t describe my excitement. I knew we were back in it, and we weren’t done yet.” That set the stage for Salgado’s magical goal, which came on the Patriots’ senior night.

“We were pushed down, but we came back stronger and finished what we needed to do,” Garcia said. Heritage and Liberty were scheduled to clash a second time on Wednesday during the opening round of the North Coast Section playoffs. Results of that game were not available as of press time.

Heritage boys’ basketball team wins league title by Michael Dixon Correspondent

Throughout the season, the Heritage boys’ basketball team has earned a reputation as being a team that finishes a lot better than it starts. So it was fitting that the Patriots would follow that script in a game in which they clinched the outright Bay Valley Athletic League (BVAL) title. Heritage and Freedom went into the locker room at halftime tied at 31. But a strong third quarter from the Patriots gave them a 10-point lead heading into the fourth, and they went on to win 7366. “We were talking about coming out fast, coming out strong. And then we just got to it,” junior guard Ezra Manjon said of the team’s halftime talk. “We got hyped up; we got amped up. Everybody started playing their roles, playing as a team, playing efficiently and scoring buckets.” Patriots’ senior forward Jacob Williams made a difference in the second half. Williams was shut out in the first half but bounced back with 11 in the final two quarters. He finished the game as Heritage’s third leading scorer, trailing

My teammates told me that, and I just felt confident going into

the second half. My intensity picked up, and I just got more into rhythm.” Freedom was led by senior guard Jabbar Wade. While the Falcons’ bench actually outscored their Patriot counterparts, Wade didn’t get enough scor-

ing from his fellow starters. Senior Erich Cumby had 12 and was the only Freedom player besides Wade to finish the game in double digits. The loss dropped the Falcons to 12-13 overall and 4-5 in BVAL play. Freedom will finish its league season on Thursday against Liberty. Heritage, on the other hand, continued a sterling season. The Patriots moved to 23-2 and are 9-0 in league play. Dating back to last season, they have won 13 straight games against league opponents and now have consecutive BVAL titles. “It’s a lot of hard work that goes into it,” Heritage coach Pat Cruickshank said. “Everything we do funnels to league. Everything we do in the preseason – all of our conditioning and everything is all about this. We’re going to enjoy this for a while and then worry about what’s down the road. We talk about wanting to win a title all the time. That’s our goal.” The Patriots will wrap up the regular season on Thursday at Antioch and will then turn their attention to the North Coast Section playoffs, which could include as many as five BVAL teams.

Liberty wrestlers take second at NCS meet by Michael Dixon Correspondent

Liberty’s wrestling team enjoyed a successful trip to the North Coast Section Dual Team Championships. The second-seed Lions held to their rank, finishing second to top-seed De La Salle. Liberty received a bye to the second round, during which the Lions’ grapplers matched up against Granada after the Matadors defeated Pittsburg in the first round. The matchup against Granada wasn’t exactly welcome for Liberty head coach Greg Chappell.

“I had done homework ahead of time,” Chappell said. “Other than De La Salle, I was most worried about Granada. They matched up well to us. There were certain key matches that I thought would be important.” Chappell’s concerns were well founded. The Lions barely escaped the Matadors, winning 39-38. The final points were secured when Adrian Chavez pinned his opponent. But celebration was temporarily delayed when a scoring error from the judges accidentally credited Granada with a forfeit that should have gone to Liberty. Eventually, the issue was resolved and

the Lions moved on. In the narrow win, Chappell actually credited two Liberty wrestlers who lost their matches – Francis Ricigliano and Logan Morris. Both were defeated but did well to keep their matches close enough for the rest of the team to pull through. “I talked to the kids,” Chappell said. “I credited Francis and Logan for not giving up pins and really winning that for us.” Liberty’s semifinal against College Park was much less stressful. The Lions disposed of the Falcons 48-37 to earn a spot against De La Salle in the

finals. The top performers for Liberty included Chavez, who won all three of his matches. Wyatt Word was also undefeated, winning his first two matches and winning by forfeit over the Spartans. Daniel Cannon and Nate Paulson both went 2-1, losing only against De La Salle. “Overall, I thought the team did well; that’s about where I thought we’d place,” Chappell said, before turning his attention to the league championships. “I told them that we took care of see Wrestlers page 19

Athlete of the Week by Tony Kukulich Staff Writer

Athlete: Jorge Rondan

School: Freedom High School Year: Senior Sport: Soccer forward and midfielder Coach: Sal Acevedo

About:

Jorge Rondan is soft-spoken senior at Freedom High School, but that quiet persona is instantly transformed when he walks onto the soccer pitch. There his athleticism, intuition and hard work have made him a leader

on the Falcons’ varsity soccer team. “Jorge’s greatest attribute is his ability to read the game,” said varsity head coach, Sal Acevedo. “He has great vision to assist his teammates, but he also has the ability to beat defenders and finish scoring opportunities with amazing skill which places him as one of the top players in (Bay Valley Athletic League) and (North Coast Section).” Rondan grew up in Oakley and Brentwood and got started playing soccer nearly as soon as he could walk.

Athlete from page 18 troduced to the sport by his father, who played while he was in Mexico, it didn’t take Rondan long to fall under the spell. “I just really loved it,” said Rondan. “I’ve always liked it. (I like) being with the team, winning, scoring goals, assisting – anything.” Getting his start with club teams, Rondan said that playing for Freedom is a different experience. “It feels more energetic here,” he explained. “(There are) more fans. It feels like you’re playing for something. The team is really close.”

Future Plans:

Much of Rondan’s time is dedicated to soccer, but he said that he takes Sun-

days off to spend time with family and friends. He expects to attend Los Medanos College in the fall, though his major is still undecided. He is not planning to play soccer in college, but he has not completely ruled out the possibility.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 916-939-0772 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site http://www.qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-17-784534-BF. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the sale is set aside for any reason, including if the Trustee is unable to convey title, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the monies paid to the Trustee. This shall be the Purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy. The purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Trustor, the Trustee, the Beneficiary, the Beneficiary’s Agent, or the Beneficiary’s Attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holders right’s against the real property only.

If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse.The beneficiary of the Deed of Trust has executed and delivered to the undersigned a written request to commence foreclosure, and the undersigned caused a Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE OF TRUSTEE’S SALE NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on this property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (866)-960-8299 or visit this Inter-

net Web site http://www.altisource.com/ MortgageServices/DefaultManagement/ TrusteeServices.aspx using the file number assigned to this case 2017-02740-CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made in an “AS IS” condition, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to-wit: $477,932.28 (Estimated) as of 02/09/2018. Accrued interest and additional advances, if any, will increase this figure prior to sale. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call, 916-939-0772 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site, www.nationwideposting.com, for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, T.S.# 9987-5720. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse.

App-enabled carpool to BART Beginning Feb. 12, commuters can get guaranteed parking until 10 a.m. at the Union City BART station when they carpool with Scoop. BART is collaborating with the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and Scoop Technologies to offer commuters the opportunity to secure a parking space by sharing a trip to the station. Starting Feb. 12, BART will allocate parking spaces in the permit area at Union City Station for carpoolers using Scoop. BART already offers this program at its Concord, Dublin/Pleasanton, Millbrae, Pleasant Hill, Rockridge and San Bruno stations. More than 200 commuters use Scoop to get to one of these stations on a typical weekday. “We’re excited to expand the Scoop to BART program to Union City,” said Jumana Nabti, BART Access Programs manager. “The demand for parking at the Union City Station is particularly high, and this program brings more people to BART with the lim-

miles south through the tunnels measuring 40 feet in diameter and buried 150 feet below ground. The price tag for the construction of the tunnels is estimated to be $17 billion, though many believe the final cost will be several times that amount. “Being prepared and having the option of a staged implementation of WaterFix is prudent, fiscally responsible and meets the needs of the public water agencies funding the project,” said Nemeth. “It would allow work to begin on WaterFix as soon as all necessary environmental review and permits are complete, which is anticipated near the end of 2018.” Jan McCleery, president of the Save the California Delta Alliance, said that the phased approach could cause more harm to the Delta region, because the construction timeline would be extended, causing greater disruption to the environment and the Delta communities. A host of opponents to the project have argued that the change in scope is significant enough to require the DWR to restart its permit approval process.

ited parking spaces available. “We have seen significant growth in the Scoop to BART program in the past year. Commuters love how Scoop provides flexibility in carpooling, and the guaranteed parking means commuters can go to work when they want,” said David Clavens, Head of Marketing at Scoop. To get guaranteed parking at the Union City BART Station, download the app at www.takescoop.com, use promo code BARTLOVE05 to receive a $5 credit, designate “Union City BART Station” as a destination and schedule a ride either before 9 p.m. the night before the morning commute or by 3:30 p.m. for that evening’s commute. Shortly after the deadline, Scoop notifies commuters who have matched with one of their more than 65,000 users. Scoop coordinates with BART to help verify carpoolers and works with BART police to ensure smooth operations every morning.  

“The shift to one tunnel without starting over in the application process on some permits isn’t legally defensible. Sierra Club California is currently one of many parties protesting the change in water rights for the tunnels at the State Water Resources Control Board,” wrote Kyle Jones of Sierra Club California. “A big change like this substantially changes the project’s impacts. These hearings must begin again to provide adequate due process for impacted parties.” Frazier echoed the sentiment and said that the phased approach called for by the DWR constitutes an entirely new project and said a single larger tunnel could have a greater impact on the environment and the local economies than the two-tunnel plan. The DWR’s permit approval process required an environmental impact report (EIR), and that report was completed based on the twotunnel plan. Frazier said the changes to WaterFix necessitate a new EIR, an effort that could set the approval process back months or longer. “DWR can’t just amend the EIR

radar trailer. “Brentwood is a great community,” said Wong, who retired a year ago after a long career in the food industry. “There are a lot of people volunteering, and this is my way of making Brentwood a great place to live.” Wong has worked countless community events, conducting outreach and giving the department an extra set of eyes and ears, which allows officers to concentrate on their primary duties. He admits that he’ll do anything for the department, which has always been on full display. Recently, when Wong got word that the department needed more members to join the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), he got certified to teach the classes that equip others to join the squad. He also frequently attends county emergency preparedness meetings to expand his knowledge. CERT training gives community members basic disaster response skills, including safety, light search and rescue team organization, and disaster medical operations.

and biological opinions and pass it off as legitimate,” said Frazier. “The size and scope of a project this size demands a thorough process and the ability for the people of the Delta to voice their concerns.” Approval of WaterFix is dependent upon, among other things, local water agencies that will receive water from the state agreeing to fund the project’s construction and operation. While Nemeth touted that 12 agencies had voted to support the two-tunnel plan, several key agencies including the Westlands Water District balked at the expense. Having failed to garner enough support for the plan, the DWR was forced to seek another solution. In her memo, Nemeth wrote, “Under this approach, DWR proposes to first focus on elements of WaterFix that are consistent with the support expressed by public water agencies ... If funding for all elements of the currently proposed WaterFix is not available when construction begins, stage two would begin once additional funding commitments are made

For Wong, volunteerism is a labor of love. He has previously volunteered for CornFest, put on a chili contest for Delta Community Services and served as a Meals on Wheels helper when he lived out of state. But he said there is something special about helping the police department. “There are other things I can volunteer for, and I’ve done that, but the police officers I have come in contact with are just great people,” he said. “It’s just a pleasure working with them.” In true volunteer fashion, Wong doesn’t seek recognition for his work. When asked about his award last week, he quickly deflected praise onto the department’s numerous other volunteers and area service clubs. “Brentwood is a great place,” Wong said. “That is because of all the great things we have: great police department, good city government and a lot of people that care. It’s a caring town.” Amongst that group is Wong, a special man, Orlando said. “We love all our volunteers, and everybody loves Curtis,” Orlando said. To comment, visit www.thepress.net

from supporting water agencies.” The Water Board issued a memo Feb. 8 indicating that the Part 2 hearings scheduled between Feb. 9 and 16 would be vacated and that hearings will resume on Feb. 22. During this time, the Water Board will consider input from both sides regarding the impact of a phased construction approach on the hearings process. A ruling is expected before the resumption of hearings on the 22nd. For more information, visit https:// nodeltagates.com or www.restorethedelta. org. See DWR’s memo at https://goo.gl/ hgq6eS.
