Deal saves Antioch cops, rankles others by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer Antioch’s City Council unanimously agreed Tuesday night to amend the city’s agreement with Antioch’s police officers union, saving the jobs of six cops but raising the ire of other unionized employees, who said the deal was unfair to them. Antioch Police Officers Association (APOA) President Sgt. Tom Fuhrmann said at Tuesday’s meeting that the agreement saves the city $966,699 in salary cuts and retirement benefits. The agreement, which covers 100 sworn officers and a dozen 9-11 dispatchers, defers three years of salary increases and requires officers to pay 3 percent of their salary into their retirement fund. The agreement allowed the city to rescind layoff notices for six Antioch officers, originally handed out in January. “The residents of Antioch can feel confident in knowing that the number of officers protecting our neighborhoods will not decline in 2011,” Fuhrmann told the City Council. “This is a major step forward in our battle to keep crime at bay in Antioch.” In a press release, Fuhrmann felt that his group had done enough to help keep the city afloat. He noted that in the past, APOA capped the benefit amounts for new hires and implemented a two-tiered retiree medical benefits system. In 2009, officers did without an agreed-upon 4.8-percent pay raise and eliminated eight hours of monthly overtime.

Antioch employees of Public Employees Union Local 1 picketed Tuesday night’s City Council meeting in objection to what they consider a “sweetheart” deal for the city’s police union. Not everyone was pleased with the terms of the agreement, however. About 20 members of Public Employees Union Local 1 picketed Tuesday’s meeting, calling the APOA pact a “sweetheart” deal. Local 1 members include roughly 50 public works employees. The contract for that union ends Sept. 30, while the APOA’s contract with the city ends in 2013. “We just want to be treated equal,” said Todd Northam, a street maintenance worker and the President of Local 1. “The majority of what the police have given are things they

were (yet) to receive – where it was stuff we already had that was taken away. Most of the public doesn’t know that. It’s different when they’re taking what you already have compared to something you were going to get in the future.” According to Local 1 attorney Rollie Katz, Antioch workers have made concessions such as continued furloughs, a 36-hour workweek, deferred pay raises until 2013, and an increase in workers’ money paid into pension plans. “We are not asking you not to adopt

this agreement,” Katz told councilmembers. “This city, and other cities and government agencies in this state and this country, are not in the financial crisis they’re in today because working people make too much money, because working people have labor unions, because police officers or the public works crews or secretaries have decent pensions. We are in this mess because of the financial crisis which was caused by the greed of the wealthiest people in this country.” At a Monday press conference announcing his group’s objection to the deal, Katz blamed city officials for not being tougher on police in the face of a major budget crisis. Katz emphasized that he is not angry at the officers, but rather the City Council, which he said promised fair cuts across the board. Jakel pointed out that while other unions negotiating with the city have been subject to layoffs, Local 1 has not. Jakel felt that negotiations have been fair and that no one group has been placed above another. Although the city’s contract with Local 1 ends Sept. 30, Jakel is confident that further talks will result in a longer agreement. “There’s ups and downs, but I don’t have any reason to think that we won’t be able to reach an agreement,” Jakel said. “Every unit has a different term of contracts. Different benefits are being conceded. It hasn’t been the same, but all of our employees have been stepping up.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Teen chases her dreams in Nashville by Samie Hartley Staff Writer While most 18-year-old high school graduates are gearing up for another round of college midterms, Jessica Caylyn is preparing to launch a career. The Antioch teen recently returned from a three-week trip to Nashville, where she recorded her first EP (extended play) album, and after years of singing cover tunes by country music’s biggest stars, Caylyn will be unleashing her own original material later this month. “Nashville was amazing,” Jessica said. “The whole experience was really fun. I was really nervous about going on my own, but I got to meet a lot of great people. Nashville is full of writers, producers, musicians and all of these people who have a deep love for music. Music is their passion, and it is inspiring to be surrounded by so many people who love music the way I do.” Jessica and her mother, Lori Bunting, traveled to Nashville last year to meet with an independent producer. After their first meeting, Bunting knew Jessica would be in good hands, so in January, Caylyn flew to Nashville for a musical journey. The experience was a whirlwind of songwriting meetings, networking parties and recording sessions, and although Jessica was nervous about her first big trip on her own, she said it was an inspiring experience and she looks forward to going back and doing it all over again. Jessica’s determination to succeed in the country music business, paired with her passion for music, is a combination her producer Steffon Hamulak considers a winning blend. “The best advice I can give to an aspiring artist is to not have a backup plan,” Hamulak said. “If you do, you’ll use it. This is all you should want to do, and if you have a backup plan – say accounting – then you’re going to fall back on accounting. It’s not an easy business, but if you want it bad enough, you’ll stop at nothing until you get where you’re going.

Antioch resident Jessica Caylyn recently returned from a trip to Nashville, where she worked with producer Steffon Hamulak. Jessica will release her first original single later this month. “You need to make a commitment to the craft and be the best you can be if you are going to succeed. You don’t have to be better than everyone else, but you need to be the best you if you’re going to make this happen. If you keep at it, you’ll get a shot, but you have to keep going and don’t look back. You have to be fearless, and that’s Jessica.” Hamulak said hearing about Jessica on MySpace, a dying social media, was a twist of fate. He hardly ever checks his MySpace account, but when he did last September, he

found a message from Jessica’s manager inquiring about a potential partnership. When Jessica and her mother met up with Hamulak the following month, he saw something in her, but it wasn’t until Jessica stepped into the recording studio that he fully realized what a talent he had in his hands. “I see a lot of talent pass through here, but Jessica is genuine,” Hamulak said. “She is really talented. She has such a see Nashville page 7A

Nashville from page 4A big voice – boy can she sing her tail off. After that day in the recording studio, I was sold. I will be her champion. She’s got a sound that music lovers are going to want to hear.” During her first week in Nashville, Jessica focused all her energy into song writing. Through the work sessions, she co-wrote three of the four songs that will appear on her EP. One of her collaborators, Greg Friia, said Jessica is a rare talent who brings a soulful touch to the songs she writes. Her unique style will be an exciting addition to the world of country music. “It’s very rare to find Godgiven talent, let alone have it appear in someone so young,” Friia said. “She is a writer way beyond her years. She knows what she wants to say and how she wants it to be said. She has a great melodic sense and it’s easy to fall in love with the sound of her voice. She brings the goose bumps to the surface.” While in Nashville, Jessica was constantly feeling goose bumps, but nothing was more thrilling than spending a day at Ocean Way Studios, one of the most famous studios on Music Row, where artists such as George Strait, Toby Keith and Faith Hill have recorded albums. Once Jessica assembled a set of songs she wanted to record, she and Hamluak went to the studio to get the tracks laid out by a band and she added her vocals later. Her first single, “Just Can’t Help Myself,” is perfect for country radio, which is Jessica’s current target. After performing at local venues with her group, The Jessica Caylyn Band, she’s ready to get her voice on the airwaves. Jessica and her manager will be submitting the

COMMUNITY

single to local stations and then cast their net to all California radio stations before branching out across the country. Jessica describes herself as a country artist with a blend of soul and rock, but the masses will decide what they think of Jessica – a process bound to be nerve-wracking but educational. “I’m looking forward to getting feedback,” Jessica said. “This is the first time I’ve recorded my own material, so I want to see what people think of it. I’ll integrate the songs into my shows and get an idea of how my fans feel about them, and then when I go to Nashville for another songwriting session, I’ll have a better idea of where I want to go.” Since Nashville is the country music capital of the world, she’s contemplating moving there. But she understands how being a California country artist can help her move forward in the business. “Nashville is the center of country music, and if you’re in Nashville with every other aspiring artist, you might get lost in the crowd,” Jessica said. “So if I can make a name for myself out here in California and grow a fan base, then Nashville might take notice. It shows that you have drive and talent. It’s a business, and I’m trying to be smart about this because this is all I want to do. I love to perform.” This summer Jessica plans to continue her fan outreach by performing at local venues and festivals and other outdoor concert events this summer to get as much exposure as possible. Jessica hasn’t set an official date to release her EP or her first single, but check her website at www.jessicacaylyn.com for updates and a list of performance dates.

REBATES FOR YOUR OLD FRIG/FREEZER If you have an older refrigerator or freezer, this may be of interest to you. Old units can be very inefficient, and buying a new one may pay for itself in a rather short time when you factor in a lower electric bill. Some new units use 50% the energy of older units. But what to do with the old one? California prohibits dumping them into a landfill, and most recycling companies charge you to come pick up your units. Well the good news is there is a way you can have someone come pick up your old unit, and you may even qualify for a $35 rebate! I found one company online called Jaco Environmental that promises to handle picking up your old unit, and process the rebate for you! Their website is http://www.jacoinc.net and their phone number is 800-741-0172. (As a disclaimer, I haven’t used them personally yet, and I don’t get any money for referring them. If you use them, please let me know how it went.)

Below are the requirements to participate 1. The refrigerator or freezer must be clean, empty and all units must be in working condition. 2. The unit must meet the size requirement, which is 10—32 cubic feet. 3. You must be a current PG&E electric customer. 4. Limit two units total per customer per calendar year. 5. You must provide clear and safe access to your appliances for the removal team. They will not risk injury or be able to move personal effects or modify your home (e.g.: remove door or railings) to remove the unit(s).

Kids fiddle around at lunch by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Every Tuesday when the lunch bell rings, a dozen or so students at Timber Point Elementary make a mad dash to Room D9 – lunch boxes flying and violin cases colliding as they descend on Amy Brossard for a half hour of musical refinement. These students are the Lunch Bunch, an energetic group of second- and third-graders who are learning what it means to “rosin up” the bow and hold their violins in “resting position,” thanks to the efforts of Brossard, the school’s music docent. The only requirements for admission to the noontime group are a willingness to learn and a violin. “My background is the violin, so when some of the students began expressing an interest in it, my principal suggested maybe I could hold a lunchtime class,” said Brossard. “So I did, and it’s been great. They are doing a very good job. The violin is a difficult instrument to learn.” “It is kind of hard, because you have to press down so hard on the strings,” admitted third grader Raegan Purkey. “But it’s a lot of fun.” “It is fun,” added Cassidy Kimble. “I practice a lot at home and I’m getting good.” So far the young musicians have mastered the D and A strings, which allows them to play such masterpieces as “Mary Had a Little Lamb” and “Hot Cross Buns.” This week’s repertoire includes learning the opening strains of “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star,” but when they’re ready, Brossard is looking forward to picking up the pace. “I really love to fiddle, and I’m looking forward to teaching the kids,” said Brossard. “Fiddling is really just about tempo. Some examples of fiddling songs would be “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” Irish jigs and folk songs. But they’ve got some practicing to do before that.” And practice they do. Many of Brossard’s students’ musical education extends beyond the lunch bell. Some take private lessons from Brossard – who lives in Discovery Bay – while others are learning and practicing on their own with the aid of sheet music Brossard hands out at the end of each class. Either way, if Brossard’s students walk away with an increased love of the violin, she considers her effort a success. “I started playing violin when I was in el-

ementary school and I always loved it,” said Brossard. “I also played the piano, but as soon as I found the violin, I just left the piano in the dust. “My hope is that the students, or at least some of them, will come away with a basic love and understanding of the violin and a desire to continue. If they do, and I know some of them will, then I’ll be happy.” To comment, visit www. thepress.net.

Byron schools to issue pink slips by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer The Byron Union School Board unanimously voted last week to cut 15 certificated and approximately six classified positions from the 2011-12 school budget in anticipation of a possible $800,000 district-wide deficit. Byron Union School District Superintendent Ken Jacopetti said the board made the reductions based on the assumption that Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposed legislation to extend the state’s current sales, vehicle and income taxes won’t pass. The extension of the taxes, which were approved in 2009 but are set to expire this year, would stave off additional cuts to the education budget for the coming year. But because the deadline for issuing layoff notices to teachers and staff is March 15 – and the outcome of the possible tax extension won’t be known until June at the earliest – the district must build its budget based on the assumption that cuts will need to be made. “The county has asked us to look at the worst possible scenario, which is that the tax extensions don’t pass, and then build our budgets accordingly,” said Jacopetti. “So that’s what we’ve done. Either way, we’ll be making cuts. But if the tax is extended, there is the possibility we won’t have to cut as many positions.” If voters nix Brown’s tax-extension, it’s likely that funding from Proposition 98 (requiring a minimum amount of the state’s budget be spent on K-12 education) will subsequently be reduced. Based on those two scenarios, Jacopetti said the deficit to the Byron school district could hover around $800,000 – an enormous number for such a small operation. “We’ve just gotten to the point where we can’t really take anymore hits,” said Jacopetti. “As we look historically over the past 25 jobs we’ve cut in the last three years, and as our revenues continue to drop, it’s a little gloomy.” Elaine Landro, president of the Byron school board, agreed the situation is serious, but believes the district will continue to do its best. “Our concerns are that if the tax extensions don’t pass, we are going to be in a lot of trouble,” said Landro. “So we’re trying to get the message out there that this is not a new tax; it’s something that we are already paying for … Everyone is out there trying to help, and we are not going to give up.” The school district’s loss of 15 staff from the current 85 certificated members would include teachers and related employees such as psychologists, mentor coaches and English language support, as well as Spanish, music and technology staff. Cuts to the 6.5 classified positions out of the current 40 employees would include aides, custodians and district office staff. Jacopetti added that last week he informed all pink-slipped employees of their status. “We have such amazing staff and they’ve been so great, but emotionally this has been very difficult for me,” said Jacopetti. “But we’re all hanging in there and trying to look ahead. The PTA has been great in offering their support, as have our school families. We’ve got to continue to operate by driving on the optimism that we can turn this thing around, and we’re all looking toward that goal.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Action from page 8A ENVIRONMENTAL CURRICULUM Byron Unified School District uses the California Adopted Science Curriculum that contains a unit of environmental studies for each grade level. The school also runs a Junior Achievement program in which students in each grade level learn about caring for the environment and eco-smart practices. The California Integrated Waste Management Act (also known as AB939) requires that all cities and counties divert 50 percent of materials from landfills. The Conservation and Development Department develops and implements programs to achieve waste diversion goals, and one such program is the EAPS, which encourages faculty and students to take proactive steps to help the environment, and provides recognition for their efforts.

COMMUNITY

Delta weeds on the chopping block by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer It’s too soon to call it a done deal, but local supporters and public officials remain cautiously optimistic that the tenacious water weed that wrecked havoc in the backyard bays of Discovery Bay last year will finally get the heave-ho – on the state’s dime. “I’m feeling pretty good,” said Jeff Conway, district manager of Reclamation District 800. “Every year they (the state) say, ‘No, not this year,’ but I have to say I’m shooting about 80 percent that this is the year they will do something.” Egeria densa, the robust and fast-growing weed commonly found in pet stores and home aquariums, has been a regular uninvited guest in the Delta for years. But last year’s perfect storm of temperature, water and sunlight caused the prolific weed to expand its reach, clogging area bays and waterways up and down the Delta, including Discovery Bay and Bethel Island. And though a treatment for the weed is available, it’s expensive (approximately $2,000 per acre) and requires a permit, making it unavailable to residents. But last week, in a follow-up meeting to last fall’s discussion with the Department of Boating and Waterways, County Supervisor Mary Piepho and local officials, including representatives from the Department of Boating and Waterways, Reclamation District 800 and members of Discovery Bay’s CSD, met for an update on the possibility of

Press file photo

The Department of Boating and Waterways is considering a plan to eradicate the egeria densa water weed in areas of Discovery Bay, above, and Bethel Island. the state-run agency footing the bill for treating egeria densa in Discovery Bay and Bethel Island. “I think we’re all very hopeful,” said Piepho. “Last fall we had a commitment that they would spray Bethel Island and Discovery Bay, and that is still holding … I believe the Department of Boating and Waterways sees this as a Delta threat with state impacts,

not just a community issue. The tone of the meeting was very positive.” Gloria Sandoval, public information officer for the California Department of Boating and Waterways, agreed. “The meeting did go very well, and we’re going to continue to work with Discovery Bay and Bethel Island on a plan,” said Sandoval. “We’re looking at our treatment site lists, and it’s looking

pretty positive.” According to Sandoval, the egeria densa is treated with a non-toxic chemical called Fluridone. The cost of $2,000 per acre covers equipment and staffing as well as the substance. It’s unclear at this time how large an area will require treatment, but according to Piepho, the state’s annual budget for invasive weed treatment comes to slightly more than $6 million. Discovery Bay CSD President Kevin Graves estimated the cost to treat Discovery Bay at around $600,000. “We have 600 acres in Discovery Bay but only about 300 (acres) need to be treated,” said Graves. “We’re pleased with the response we’re getting from the state and local agencies, and we’re coordinating as best we can to help.” If all goes as planned, and the state budget continues to allow for the spraying of the weeds, the process is tentatively scheduled to begin in mid-April, before boating season opens. Before then, according to Piepho, there are plans to hold community town hall meetings in early April in Bethel Island and Discovery Bay. “We’ll begin working on public education and outreach, and the town hall meetings will tell the community about the process, what to expect and what not to expect,” said Piepho. “I think they (Department of Boating and Waterways) are cautiously optimistic and we are, too. We’re moving forward as though we have a yes on this.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Tax extension unpleasant but necessary Editor: As a conservative whose pay has been frozen for three years, I am against any more taxes. We live in an ungovernable state, deep in debt, run by fiscally irresponsible officials, controlled by special interests. We’re in the midst of a budget crisis that threatens to gut our schools even more. Numerous problems abound: In the last decade the California Teachers Union has donated $12 million to political causes. We are one of the highest-taxed states in the country, but at the bottom in both student funding and return for our tax dollar. California spends about $9,500 per student and $43,000 per prisoner per year. Reforming state employee unions and reeling in out-of-control spending is our only hope. This being said, we desperately need this five-year tax extension. We cannot afford to underfund the schools anymore. If you have children or relatives in school, do you not want them to have the full spectrum of opportunity before them? When teachers and staff are cut, and elective programs like the arts, theater and sports are cut, the effects will be devastating. While there are many problems that need to be addressed, this is the only quick fix for the immediate future. It is the least we can do for our children. They deserve so much more, and this crisis is not their fault. John Craig Brentwood

Brentwood should be proud Editor: It has been my pleasure and awe to work with many community organizations, nonprofits and so very many

BRENTWOOD PRESS

civic-minded citizens over the last three years. I have been witness to a community that realizes that by working together, every part of the community can be made stronger and more prosperous. Businesses and organizations all have been supporting each other through the “interesting” worldwide economic times we live in now. By continuing to support each other locally, every aspect of the community has been strengthened. So be very proud of your city, Brentwood! As the downtown revitalization continues, new and existing businesses and events keep increasing the reasons why more and more people in the Bay Area are discovering Brentwood and the Delta as the place to visit, live and play. You can go to farms, vineyards, olive groves, health spas, great restaurants, stores, movie theaters and soon the only IMAX theater in Contra Costa County. I feel fortunate to have been associated, and hopefully to have assisted, a great community moving forward. Tracey Nobil Walnut Creek

Eagle project hits homer Editor: I recently finished my Eagle Scout project. I wanted to extend a huge thankyou to our community. This community helped to make my Eagle project a huge success. I collected new and used baseball equipment to be donated to children in third-world countries. With the help and encouragement of many people I was able to collect almost 700 pieces of baseball equipment. Again, thank you for your donations, time, and most of all, your support. Brad Swisher Brentwood

Compassionate community Editor: We would like to thank The Press for running an article about our daughter Sydney and her journey battling an undiagnosed illness. Since the article ran on Dec. 23, 2010, we have been blessed so much by the outpouring of support from the community. When you are in a battle with any illness over a long period of time, it can feel very lonely. Being in and out of hospitals and doctors’ appointments for the majority of your days makes connecting with others very challenging. We have been blessed with having Nana and Papa living close by and being so very involved in our lives and all three of our children’s education and some friends that have stood by us through all of this. But since the article ran and the community has become aware of our journey, we have received so much support from some families in the same situation to families that couldn’t even imagine this happening to them. This added support

has truly blessed us and let us know that the community is behind us and others like us. We are looking forward to the day that we can turn this around and help others as well. For now, we are still working toward answers for our daughter. She has had a very challenging month, and as a chronic illness goes up and down with good and bad periods of time, it is hard to watch her in a bad time. We have many great doctors working to find the answer but we still have to manage the symptoms along the way. We are so excited about the offers from many business owners and community members to continue the ability to have more fundraisers for the ongoing expenses our family faces. Willy’s Bagels in Brentwood is having a Sydney’s Journey day on March 12 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Proceeds from that day will go to Sydney’s fund at US Bank and we will be there all day to meet the community and make some new friends. We have several other events penciled in and are looking forward to them as well. Please come by Willy’s to have a bite to eat and a chance for us to get to know you a bit and extend our thanks for all the support. We truly believe that Prayer – Courage – Support is the only way we can travel down this journey. Sydney is the Courage and we surround her with Prayer and Support every day. Thank you for blessing us with your prayer and support. You have lightened our burden and helped us push forward in helping our daughter obtain the quality of life most of us take for granted on a daily basis. Thanks to The Press for getting our story out there. If you are interested in following Sydney’s progress, you can go to www. caringbridge.org/visit/sydneystone or check out her website at www.helpsydney. info for upcoming events. From our family to yours, we send you our heartfelt thanks. The Stones Brentwood

Cherry’s Tax Facts... By Cherry Comstock

Most Common Taxpayer Misconceptions In 2011, the most common misconception may be that taxes are due on April 15. Due to the Emancipation Day holiday that is celebrated in Washington, DC, all taxpayers have an extra few days this year. Taxes must be filed by April 18, 2011. Another big source of confusion is filing extensions for tax returns. When an extension is filed, it is just an extension on the time to file; it is not an extension on the time to pay! If a taxpayer owes $1,000 on a personal return and files an extension, he or she has until October 15 to file the return. But, if the $1,000 is still owed on April 18, interest and penalties start to accrue. It was also reported that many taxpayers believe that filing an extension increases their chances of being audited—not so. Reporting state refunds on federal returns seems unnecessary to a lot of taxpayers who don’t understand the connection between the two. The reason this reporting is necessary is that taxpayers who itemize their deductions are allowed to deduct all state taxes paid or withheld on their federal return. A refund from the state changes the tax liability for the year the deduction was claimed. That refund is included as income for federal purposes if the taxpayer itemized deductions in the prior year. Taxpayers may find it odd that they are paying tax on a refund, but they are correcting an overdeduction from the previous year. “The inherited IRA is plagued by misconcep-

tions, including, “The IRA I inherited has to be taken out all at once,” “Inherited IRAs are not taxable,” and “I can convert it to a Roth IRA.” Heirs without expert tax guidance can wind up paying a lot more than is necessary. Social Security is yet another hot spot of misconception! Seniors have been told that once they have reached full retirement age they will receive full Social Security benefits, regardless of how much they earn. Many are unaware that their benefits may be taxable, depending on the amount of income received from all sources. There may be enough misconceptions about taxes to fill the Internet, but taxpayers who want to avoid the pitfalls resulting from misinformation and take full advantage of all of the credits and deductions to which they are entitled should contact an enrolled agent. Enrolled agents (“EAs”) are the only federallylicensed tax experts and must undergo a background check and pass a stringent three-part exam in order to qualify. To keep the license, EAs must complete annual continuing education requirements that are reported to IRS and adhere to a code of ethics. Should you have questions about this or any other tax matter feel free to contact our office. www. jettax.org, info@www.jettax.org, or call (925)778-0281.

Patriots title plans going swimmingly Kiel Olff is confident that the team will show a marked improvement from last year. “Our boys team is much improved and stronger, as we only lost one swimmer from the year before,” Olff said. “Andrew Wayne will be looking to improve on his third-place (individual medley) finish last year. Alex Bilderback and Anthony Coppo are strong breaststrokers and senior captain TJ Martell is a strong butterflyer.” For the girls, senior captain Krystle Talens hopes to return to NCS in the 100 fly, and Laura Christensen is a strong 500 swimmer. “We are really excited about our divers,” Olff said. “Senior captain Rachel Cadwallader’s goal is to win a BVAL title and improve on her 17th-place finish at NCS last year. And Isabella Navarro is working on a 2½ summersault this year.”

by Dennis Biles Correspondent As temperatures slowly begin to creep upward, swimmers and divers of the Bay Valley Athletic League are set to begin the 2011 campaign. Last year, the Heritage High boys and girls squads took home the league title. This season, fielding their largest group of swimmers and divers ever, the Patriots are primed to be a top contender once again. As the other teams have set their sights on making noise in the BVAL, this should be an exciting season. The defending champions boast not only a talented group of swimmers and divers, but at 100 strong, the deepest squad in the league. Heritage head coach Craig Carson is excited to see if his team is up to the challenge of repeating as league champion. “This season is shaping up to be a promising one,” Carson said. “We begin the season with 110 swimmers and divers, our largest group ever. Our boys and girls teams are both defending BVAL champions, and with our strong group of incoming freshmen, we hope to contend again in 2011.” The varsity girls are led by Madison Applegate, an All-American in the 100meter butterfly, and Haley Rose Love, a two-event finalist at last year’s North Coast Section championships. For the boys, Car-

Three years ago, the Antioch swimming program was in shambles and in danger of being scrapped altogether. Although it has taken time to put the pieces back together, and there’s still a way to go, the Panthers promise to provide stiff competition for the rest of the league. “Our team is coming back stronger than we have the past three years,” head coach Keri Miles said. “We have double the kids see Plans page 23A

Deer Valley’s big season ends in tough loss by Michael Dixon Correspondent In many ways, Deer Valley High’s girls varsity basketball season can be viewed as successful. Including the playoffs, the Wolverines notched a 20-8 record and won a fifth consecutive Bay Valley Athletic League title, going a perfect 10-0 in league play, more stellar when considering that the BVAL sent three other teams to the playoffs and the Wolverines beat all of them by at least 14 points. What Deer Valley failed to do this year however, was reach the North Coast Section final game, which would have been good enough to put them in the state tournament. The Wolverines season ended in a 65-39 loss to Carondelet, their second loss to the Cougars this season. “It’s hard to win when you can’t make any baskets,” said head coach Mark Anger. “It was a good season; it wasn’t a great season. A great season would have meant a win tonight.” Deer Valley did hold the first lead of the game at 1-0 when senior forward Kayla Alexander split free throws. Unfortunately for the Wolverines, they wouldn’t score again until late in the first quarter. As Carondelet was dealing with its own struggles, it looked for a while like Deer Valley could absorb the cold offensive performance. But the Cougars finished the first quarter strong, opening up a 14-3 lead. The Wolverines never got any closer. As Anger pointed out, Deer Valley’s lack of scoring was a result of poor shooting. The Wolverines missed

12 free throws alone. Some struggles, particularly in the opening quarter, can be chalked up to bad luck, as several shots appeared good before bouncing away from the hoop. The rest can be attributed to a smothering Carondelet defense that rarely gave Deer Valley shooters much room. After the first quarter, the Wolverines point total increased every quarter. The problem was that the Cougars matched that trend, scoring 19 points in each of the middle two quarters. Sophomore guard Sabrea Coleman came off the bench to lead Deer Valley in scoring with 11. Senior guard Raven Fox, bound for Fresno State, was right behind her with 10. Carondelet was paced by senior forward Erica Payne and junior guard Hannah Huffman, each of whom netted 18. “It’s been good,” said Fox of her time at Deer Valley. “As a freshman, I didn’t have that starting spot, so I worked hard. I got it as a sophomore and continued to work hard.” The Wolverines will not get a chance for revenge against a Berkeley team that defeated them in the NCS final game in 2008 and 2010. Still, the Wolverines’ run of success can’t be dismissed. From the time the current senior class were freshmen through this season, Deer Valley’s record in league play has been 54-2. The loss to Carondelet was the final game in a Wolverine uniform for seven seniors, including the starting five of Alexander, Fox, Nyaa Davis, Imana Samuels and Darnela Jenkins.

Deer Valley sophomore guard Kai Butler, defended by Carondelet’s Hannah Huffman, looks to make a pass to a teammate. “It ended abruptly,” said Alexander. “We didn’t want it to end so quickly after we came so far, but I think we played hard. I have no regrets.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Plans from page 21A of last year, but we’re still small, with only 23 swimmers. … We’re not quite there, but I’m looking forward to being together. We have a very strong foundation.” Despite the limited number of swimmers, Miles expects some them to make an impact this season. She pointed to Tanner Fuhrman, one of the team’s better allaround swimmers. “He has hidden potential, but he doesn’t like to show it,” Miles said. “If he pushes himself, he’s an incredible swimmer. I think he’s going to do really well this year.”

Liberty For the first time in 13 years, the Lions will be coached by somebody other than Erica Pantle, who stepped down from the program after last season. In comes Cindi Coats, who has put a renewed focus on sticking together as a team. “Team unity is the biggest difference. Last year we had some kids who had individual goals, which is fine, but they weren’t focused on the team. We’re working a lot more on that this year,” Coats said. Coats coaches a largely inexperienced girls squad, but is confident the boys team will be able to make its presence felt in the BVAL this season. “We graduated 10 swimmers from the girls team last year, so we’re very young on varsity,” Coats said. “For the boys, it’ll be interested to see how it plays out. It really comes down to the dual meets. It should be a fun year.” Coats expects a strong season from senior Joey Cecchini, whom she described as

a technically sound and strong swimmer in all strokes.

Freedom The Falcons appear on the right track early on, as the girls Medley Relay team has already posted an NCS Consideration time. The Falcons are one of the most consistent programs in the league and are usually in the running for the league title. The diving team will be led by first-year head coach Krista Plumlee, and she’s excited to see what her squad is capable of. “Be on the lookout for Kate Clark, Taylor Morrow, Kirsten Hulsey and Patrina Smart,” Plumlee said. “They are returning divers from last year and know what it takes to be successful. They are also constantly striving for improvement.”

The Pirates might lack the recognition accorded other BVAL swimmers – what they don’t lack is talent and passion. Athletic director Al Hurtado expressed his admiration for head coach Nicole Dennis and assistant coach Susie Farmer, both in their fourth year at Pittsburg. “Both are very fine coaches. This is their fourth year with us, and they’ve really built the program up,” said Hurtado. “The year before they got here, we only had 10 swimmers.” Despite the lack of recent success, the Pirates are hoping that continuity will breed success. “Our hope is that after four years of having them here,” Hurtado added, “we’re going to be more competitive this season.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Wolverines look to hoist another banner by Michael Dixon Correspondent

Deer Valley junior outside hitter Noah Labonte spikes a ball against Freedom last season. Labonte and the Wolverines expect to be the aces of the BVAL again this year. dropped in league play. This is head coach Steve Evans’ first year as skipper of the varsity squad, but his time as junior varsity head coach and varsity assistant makes him no stranger to the program or the current roster. Greeting Evans is a quartet of senior leaders: outside hitters Tyler Evans and Dane Crabtree, right-side hitter Nick Sanders and setter D.J. Morales. “This is an experienced group. I’ve been with them for four years.” said Evans. “We’re looking better.” He identifies hitting as the Panthers’ strength, while their passing and blocking are areas in need of improvement. Heritage Janet Hannigan is in her first year as the coach of the boys team. Despite that, she is far from a stranger to Heritage volleyball. In the fall, Hannigan leads the girls team, the reigning league champions. While the Patriots field seven seniors on the roster, only outside hitter Matt Maderos and middle blocker Phillip Benotti logged any time on last season’s varsity team that went 11-12 overall, 9-6 in league. Most of the others

are athletes from other sports who are fans of the girls team and know Hannigan well. “They’re interesting and new,” said Hannigan of her team. As the team features five sophomores, she hopes this year will put Heritage on the map: “We’re expecting a tough go of it. But I wouldn’t put them there if I didn’t think they had skill and maturity to handle it. Last weekend, Heritage played in the Deer Valley Jamboree, facing the Wolverines and 2010 NCS champion Foothill. Hannigan didn’t attend the matches, but her assistants told her the team is far are ahead of where it was last year at this time. Freedom The only players returning from the 2010 team (8-12 overall and 7-7 in league) are senior outside inset Dalton Weger, senior outside hitter Jake Ubrick and junior opposite hitter Behzod Kahn. And yet head coach Kellie Goldberg, who took over early last season, is pleased with the progress her team has made thus far, especially in achieved good chemistry. “Things are looking pretty good.

Since the moment the current senior volleyball players at Deer Valley High School stepped onto the campus as freshmen, league championships are all they have known. Still, as the Wolverine boys look to hoist a fifth consecutive league championship banner, head coach Lou Panzella is hesitant to put too much stock in past success. “Last year is meaningless when it comes to what we will do this year,” said Panzella of the 2010 campaign, in which the Wolverines went 27-8 overall, 15-0 in league and made it to the North Coast Section semifinals. “But the kids have a tradition of playing well and winning. Winning can breed winning just like losing can breed losing.” As Deer Valley’s lineup features a player measuring 6 feet 7 inches and another 6-4, the team should be as tall as any in the Bay Valley Athletic League. The taller of those athletes is senior outside hitter Jason Agopian, who recently committed to UC Irvine. But the Wolverines’ impressive altitude will mean nothing if they can’t pass the ball well. The only regular starter from last season’s squad not returning is setter Kurt Kline, who graduated. If Deer Valley does pass well, its height should provide a tremendous advantage both on offense and defense. “We should be as good or better than last year,” Panzella added. “But that’s all speculation until you perform on the court. The other variable is that we anticipate some of the other programs improving. And really, I hope they do.” Antioch Other than Deer Valley, Antioch was the only BVAL team to post an overall winning record in 2010, going 17-13, 10-5 in league play. While the Panthers were 0-3 against Deer Valley, they did manage to steal a game in two of their three matches against the Wolverines – two of the three matches that Deer Valley

have only three returning players, and that’s an obstacle, but I have been really impressed with how quick they’ve adjusted,” Goldberg said. “They all get along really well and do a great job of learning from each other, as well as me.” She also noted that while last year’s team was full of seniors, many with little or no past volleyball experience, this team is younger but ahead of last year’s squad in terms of fundamentals. Pittsburg The bad news for Pittsburg fans is that last year’s Pirates team featured 12 seniors. The good news is that their roster was 17 strong, so a few of those players return to build off last season, when the team went 3-11. Pittsburg beat Liberty in all three of last season’s clashes – but that’s where the Pirates’ league success ended. This year, their rivals are expecting stronger things from Pittsburg. Liberty The Lions failed to win a game in Nicholas Pridmore’s first year as the head coach. This year, Pridmore is expecting his big, senior-laden team to improve. “We have a good number of guys,” said Pridmore. “We’re going to have only a varsity team this year. We have a few returning athletes and quite a few seniors. We’re also expecting a competitive league.” Pridmore said he’s open to see which players step up to leadership roles. Despite that, he’s expecting leadership and strong play from senior setter Dylan Dutra, a big part of last season’s team. He’s also excited to watch the development of junior middle blocker Brock Bronte, who stands well over six feet tall and is still learning the game. Pridmore identified Bronte as a player with a good attitude and a lot of potential. Liberty recently played a scrimmage in Cupertino that gave the Lions their first taste of league play.

Delta Dawgs sniff victory Playing in their first competitive baseball tournament, the 9U Delta Dawgs defeated the NorCal Devil Dawgs 12-7 to capture the All World Sports Baseball President’s Day baseball tournament championship. Competing against more experienced teams after only six weeks of practice, the tenacious Dawgs won three straight games at the Sacramento Sports Complex to bring home their first championship trophy. The 9U Dawgs went undefeated in five games, racking up 62 total runs. In the final three elimination games, the Dawgs outscored teams from Brentwood, Citrus Heights and Suisun City 39-10. “I am so proud of each one of the boys,” said Manager Matt Turturici. “Once they worked through their first-game jitters, they played like a veteran team. We were very aggressive at the plate – every player had a multiple-hit weekend. This was an outstanding team effort and a great first tournament experience.” In the first elimination game, the

Dawgs defeated Brentwood Rampage 17-2. Alex Merchant pitched a strong complete game for the win. Jared deFremery, Cameron Brossard, Casey Turturici and Kobe Mengenhauser combined for nine hits and 10 runs. In the semifinals, the Dawgs dominated MVP Baseball 10-1, featuring shut-down pitching from Mateo Humphreys and Brossard. Ryan Jackson and Ryan Pierce led the Dawgs scoring attack with timely doubles. Outstanding defensive plays by Bradley Sides and Adam Smith prevented MVP from scoring any additional runs. Justin Lund, Jackson and Pierce led the Dawgs hitting attack. In the final game, the Dawgs scored six runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to defeat the NorCal Devil Dawgs 12-7. Pierce and Jackson’s strong pitching effort frustrated Devil Dawgs’ batters all game long. Cheered on by their parents, the upstart Dawgs celebrated their first tournament experience with a championship trophy. – Contributed by Galen Smith

Okay, not David Copperfield type magic but in the “Tri City” sales area (Antioch, Brentwood, and Oakley) inventory sure is disappearing. In January and February of 2010 alone over 850 homes were sold between the three cities, compared to only 516 homes for January and February of this year. What this has created is a substantial increase in the actual sales price based on the substantial lack of actual inventory; a 16.7% increase in January, and an 8.7% jump in February. The amount of potential buyers has increased, while the amount of inventory has decreased…not magic, statistics. Statistically speaking, the private mortgage insurance company MGIC has noticed the median increase in sales price, and adjusted their guidelines accordingly. If you are an FHA buyer, and you have a credit score above 680, you’ll want to hear this: MGIC is moving seven California regions up from their Tier 2 “risk level” to their Tier 1 “risk level”. This HUGE change in guidelines will allow would be buyers with a 680 score, versus the previous Tier 2 score of 720 many positives; they can purchase a home using 95% conventional financing, versus 96.5% FHA financing; there is no upfront mortgage insurance premium (MIP) that only increases your loan amount, and debt, from the start; buyers are able to take advantage of any home improvements

or appreciation as most lenders allow for a new appraisal to cancel MGIC’s mortgage insurance, versus FHA where you either need to refinance or wait five years to remove the mortgage insurance; a substantial overall savings in both three and five year periods. Assuming a purchase price of $250,000, and an interest rate of 5.00%, MGIC’s private mortgage insurance costs over a three year period would be $3,308, versus FHA at $8,438. Again, there is no upfront MIP to deal with and the actual coverage rates are lower than those of FHA. Now that’s truly MGIC! With the spring and summer real estate markets right around the corner it is important to arm yourself with as much information as possible. The beginning of this article touched on the dramatically low inventory our market has to offer, and if you are an FHA buyer continually being turned down because of either cash, or conventional offers, it might be time to rethink your approach. Now that private mortgage insurance is available at 95% with a 680 FICO score, if you’re able, you should magically convert yourself into a conventional buyer!

OBITUARIES July 27, 1930-Feb. 15, 2011 Brentwood resident Milton “Don” Honea succumbed to lung cancer after a brief illness. Don, one of two children, was born in Tuscon, Ariz.. He attended high school in Eunice, N.M. before serving four years in the Air Force. Upon leaving the Air Force, Don attended the University of New Mexico and one year at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. From the time he was a small boy, Don had a passion for airplanes and wanted to fly. He entered the Navy and attended Naval

Cadet Training and Post-graduate school in Monterey. He completed flight training in April of 1956. Don earned the rank of lieutenant commander and received the National Defense Service Medal with Bronze Star, among numerous other citations for his service on the USS Hornet as a participant in the recovery of Apollo 11 and 12. Don had many hobbies including, restoring antique aircrafts as a volunteer at the Watsonville Air Museum, and the restoration of Russian MiG at the Byron Airport. He loved football, basketball and was a voracious reader, particularly of the United States and military history. Don enjoyed music and sang in the Summerset Singers and Brentwood Com-

munity United Methodist Church Choir. He loved his family and enjoyed spending time with them. He had a warm smile and a great sense of humor, and always a joke or funny story to tell. Don is survived by his wife of 12 years, Michael Ann; brother: Lavonne of Odessa, Texas; son: Jason of Berlin, Germany; stepdaughter: Margot Diaz Learned of La Canada; one grandson, three step-grandchildren and one step great-grandchild. Family and friends attended a viewing at Brentwood Funeral Home on Feb. 22. A military burial was held at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery on Feb. 23, followed by a memorial service at the Summerset 1 Activity Center.

Donald Emerson Scheer Donald Emerson Scheer, 77, passed away Saturday, Feb. 19 at Sutter Delta Hospital in Antioch and was laid to rest at Fernwood in Mill Valley. Donald was born Sept. 13, 1933 in Elizabeth, N.J. In 1951 he graduated from Tenafly High School and went on to earn his BEE from Cornell University Engineering School in 1956. He was a member of the Delta Tau Delta Fraternity. Donald married Janet Wylie Hunter and then went on to serve two years in the U.S. Navy at the Ordnance Plant in South Charleston, W. Va.

Seen in San Diego

lfred, left, and Jack Jackson recently took their Hometown Weekly Newspaper on a two-week vacation to Vietnam and Cambodia. The brothers toured Ho Chi Min City and Hanoi in Vietnam, plus Phnom Penh and Siem Reap in Cambodia, where they’re seen with the Oakley Press at sunrise in the Angkor Wat temple complex. “We had a great time, and the people from both countries were very warm and kindhearted,” said Alfred. Thanks, guys, for the exotic excursion.

T

he Lord and Olson girls took their Hometown Weekly Newspaper for a screaming, gravity-assisted ride down a slide at the Grand Wailea Hotel in San Diego. Now we understand what they meant when they said the Brentwood Press is “all wet.”

Historical docents needed The East Contra Costa Historical Society is looking for people interested in local history to become museum docents. No experience is necessary, and membership is not required. One session of docent training is required, held Sunday, March 27 at 1 p.m. and again at Saturday, April 9 at 11 a.m. If you can donate two or more hours between April and October and would like to become a museum docent, call Carolyn Sherfy at 925-516-7798 or Pat Bello at 925625-3553. The Society maintains a historical museum that provides a chronological record of significant events affecting life in East Contra Costa. There is no admission charge to view the exhibits, but donations are gratefully accepted. The Society is a completely volunteer organization with no paid employees. It receives no government grants or support and is fully self-supporting through dues and donations. The museum grounds are located at 3890 Sellers Ave. on the Knightsen-Brentwood border, just south of Sunset Road. The centerpiece of the grounds’ Victorian landscape is a lovely two-story 1870 farmhouse featuring rooms furnished with period furniture and artifacts. Outdoor exhibits include a historical 1947 Dodge Van Pelt fire truck, vintage automobiles and trucks, a railroad caboose and farm machinery, plus buildings that house tools and other exhibits of life and industry in East County. Special exhibits rotate, so there is always something new to see. The museum is currently closed for the winter, but reopens on April 2 for the 2011 season. The scheduled hours for the public are 2-4 p.m. every Saturday and every third Sunday of the month from April through October. The museum is also open by appointment. Visitors are invited to bring a lunch and picnic onto the grounds. Every spring, busloads of East County students take docent-guided tours of the museum, which is part of the California History curriculum for most public and private schools in Brentwood, Byron, Discovery Bay, Bethel Island, Knightsen and Oakley.
