Frazier to continue district campaign by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Oakley City Councilman Jim Frazier will face off against Suisun City Vice Mayor Mike Hudson in November for the California Assembly District 11 seat after placing second in Tuesday’s primary election. “It’s been nine long months of campaigning leading up to this primary election, and here we are,” said Frazier on Wednesday morning. “What a great feeling. I’d like to thank all my supporters for their vote of confidence. I’m so grateful to all the volunteers for their help during the campaign. Now, it’s on to November.” Frazier secured his position in the fall election by garnering 15,386 votes in Tuesday’s primary, beating out fellow Democrats Patricia Hernandez (9,501), Gene Gantt (3,197) and Charles Kingeter (939). Len Augustine, who ran as an independent, secured 8,308 votes. Hudson, a Republican, amassed 17,288 votes, making him Tuesday’s most successful candidate. Frazier out-performed Hudson among Contra Costa County voters, winning 8,819 votes to Hudson’s 8,576, but Hudson got a greater response from Solano and Sacramento county voters. Due to voter redistricting established last year by the California Citizens Redistricting Commission in response to the 2010 census results, the new District 11 assemblymember will represent voters in Brentwood, Oakley, Antioch, Discovery Bay, Rio Vista,

Known as a champion of transportation improvements, serving as chairman of the State Route 4 Bypass Authority and vice chair of TRANSPLAN, Frazier has also been lauded for his charity work with The Network of Care and the Friends of Oakley, both of which he is a co-founder. Campaigning under the slogan People Before Politics, Frazier’s goals are to encourage job creation, overhaul education and limit hikes in college tuition, and protect the Delta, providing water storage for droughts. Hudson, 51, has served on the Suisun City Council for six years. He is also the vice chair of the Transportation, Communication and Public Works Policy Committee for the California League of Cities and vice president of the Fairfield Suisun Sewer District Board. He is a supporter of the Vacaville Boys and Girls Club, Fairfield Downtown Association and Suisun American Little League. He is also a retired naval officer with 10 years of honorable service.

Warm weather heats up interest at county fair by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer

Thousands of racing fans cheering the spectacle of a racecar on its roof isn’t an ordinary occurrence, but the Contra Costa County Fair isn’t an ordinary event. Thousands turned out May 31 to June 3 for the yearly affair, which attracted patrons with a variety of off-the-wall events, shows and food options. Overall attendance figures for the 76th annual fair hadn’t been compiled by Press time, but CEO Robert  Williamson anticipates a large increase. “All in all, it was a success,” Williamson said. “The grandstands were packed and everyone appeared happy.” The theme of this year’s event, Under the Sun, lived up to its billing. Rain interrupted much of the event last year, which led to decreased attendance. “It was great to have it be sunny for all three days,” said Williamson. Traditional favorites such as jugglers, carnival rides and sugary treats awaited patrons the minute they breezed through the turnstiles, but nothing ramped up emotions like the series of events brought back from past years. The return of stockcar racing combined with a series of other automotive crowd-pleasers kick-started the adrenalin of fans. Crowd favorites included boat trailer races, a racecar rollover competi-

The project took about three days, from the prep work of cleaning the surface to the use of a 1,000-square-foot stencil to draw the map. According to Rotarian and project manager Dirk Zeigler, the map will give kids the opportunity to play and learn at the same time.

A capella singers wanted for new group by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Have you ever seen someone perform on TV and think, “Hey, I could do that”? That’s what happened to Discovery Bay resident Kristin Bradshaw, 21, a fan of the reality competition “The Sing Off.” After loyally watching the televised a capella competition for several seasons, Bradshaw has decided to form her group. The ensemble might not win America’s vote and a recording contract with a major music label, but the idea of creating a community a capella group struck Bradshaw as a

fun challenge. “I’ve watched every season of ‘The Sing Off ’ since it started,” she said. “I’ve always thought a cappella groups were so cool – the fact that every sound is coming from a person. When I started visiting colleges with my sister, I saw all these colleges with a cappella groups. I really wanted to be in something like that, but we don’t have anything like that around here. Took me some time, but I decided, why not just start one myself ?” Bradshaw is currently accepting audition submissions from vocalists who’d like to sing in her to-be-named group. The Los Medanos College stu-

dent knows it’s difficult to carve out time for recreational activities, so she invited the public to submit digital copies of a capella auditions by June 24. Bradshaw invites anyone who loves music to submit an audition to her email address, bubbli_n_purple_4@hotmail.com. There are no restrictions regarding gender, age or vocal range. Once the members have been selected, Bradshaw will work with them to establish a schedule that works for everyone. Audition clips must be at least one minute long, and Bradshaw encourages performers to choose a song that best highlights their vocal abilities. She

also welcomes beat boxers. Bradshaw embraced her love of music as a student at Liberty High School, where under the mentorship of choir director Sue Stuart she began to hone her talents. “Choir changed my life,” Bradshaw said. “I was involved in every choir. I was on choir council one year, and I did all the extras such as RentA-Carol and solo and ensemble. Anything I could be a part of, I was.” Bradshaw is also asking applicants to complete a short survey. For more information about the audition process, call Bradshaw at 925-848-9842.

Teen Theater tackles ‘Footloose’ Summer art Fresh on the heels of performances of Disney’s “Mulan,” the Brentwood Teen Theater (BTT) is making ambitious plans in the arena of contemporary musical theater. Beginning June 16, BTT will be holding auditions for its summer session of preparation for the September production of the musical “Footloose.” Inspired by the motion picture “Footloose,” starring Kevin Bacon as a big-city teen who must move with his single mother to a small con-

servative farm town, the musical “is probably our most challenging show for soloists and dancers since our production of ‘High School Musical 2,” according to BTT Artistic Director and Brentwood resident Steve Kinsella. BTT was the first training program in California allowed by Disney to present “High School Musical 2.” The Saturday sessions at BTT enter their eighth year of providing professional-level training in singing, acting, stage presence and con-

fidence training. Many of Kinsella’s former students have gone on to Broadway and won impressive college scholarships. A working actor himself, Kinsella teaches practical and clear concepts for students to grasp and implement easily into their skill set. All participants in the training session (for performers 10 to 18) are cast in the show. For information on the auditions and training, visit www.brentwoodteentheater.com  or call 925-516-9009.

HOW SELLERS CHOOSE OFFERS PART II

While sellers with equity are probably MOST concerned about the net price, that is not usually the top consideration for short sale sellers. In a short sale, the seller isn’t getting the proceeds, so a higher offer doesn’t translate into more money to them. However, a short sale seller DOES need to make sure they exposed the home to the market and that they are presenting the best overall offer to their bank(s) for consideration. They have a legal and ethical duty to try to reduce the bank’s losses (yes, even if the seller thinks that all banks are the spawn of the Devil). Basically the short sale seller needs to be able to honestly say that they choose offer A over offer B because offer A had fewer credits, stronger financials, quicker close, etc. even though offer B was for a higher purchase price. But if the seller purposefully chooses a lower offer over a higher offer only because the seller knows the buyer, or has worked out some other kind of “deal” on the side with that buyer, that could be considered loan fraud. But does this mean the short sale seller has to submit only the highest offer to the

bank? No, not necessarily. The seller will often choose the offer that is the most likely to close, but that still represents at least market value for the property. Sometimes we get less than 30 days to close a short sale because of an approaching foreclosure date. This may not leave time for some FHA or VA financing to go through. Or let’s say the property is in disrepair, and it’s likely that FHA or VA financing will require certain repairs to be made or the loan won’t be approved. But this does not mean that 100% cash offers will win every time. Some 100% cash buyers think they can buy short sales at a big discount and are frustrated when I tell them their offer is too far below market value. The seller’s lender will look at the value of the home and compare it against the offer and will reject offers that are too low, despite being all cash.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters

“Show me the money!” - A notorious saying in some circles, but always referenced back to the 1996 Tom Cruise and Cuba Gooding, Jr., film, Jerry Mcguire. In the film it was said first by Cuba Gooding Jr. while he made the most important financial decision of his family’s life. For anyone being foreclosed, or being threatened with foreclosure, here in California, “Show me the note!” is the battle cry for fighting the foreclosure. On two recent occasions in California restraining orders have been in place to stop foreclosure proceedings because the lender(s) were not to the provide the bankruptcy courts the documentation needed to prove they truly owned the note – therefore they could not prove they had the right to foreclose on the property in question. With the very recently released Office of Thrift Supervision study, announced by managing director Grovetta Gardineer, providing evidence that 55% of all “modified loans” redefault within the first six months, it’s truly relevant to begin discussions on alternative ways of saving your home. Since California permits foreclosure proceedings to begin without the homeowner represented by legal counsel, for anyone in foreclosure, or threatened with foreclosure, it’s come to a point where hiring, or at least looking into, legal counsel should be a serious thought. Instead of paying for a loan modification that promises no finish line, or exact results, why not at the very least investigate the idea of a real estate attorney, or a bankruptcy attorney to save your home? Quoting from yet another film, this time the 1972 classic, The Godfather, “every great wealth comes from a great crime.” The very same lenders, brokerages, and trading firms that made hundreds of

millions (in some cases, billions) from the housing boom, are also the same sloppy companies that apparently did not pay enough attention to the details – such as the needed documentation to confirm ownership of many mortgage notes. With over $810 billion in mortgages converted into securities and made available for trading in 2006 it is not becoming apparent in the courts that not every lender executed the proper paperwork to transfer some of those mortgages to the investors who thought they bought them, and so now those investors are being told by the courts they cannot foreclose on those loans! Simply stated, if the party trying to foreclose can’t provide proof they own the note on your home, how can they possibly call said note due and retain ownership of the collateral, thus foreclosing on your family? In court, by law, if they lender cannot provide the needed documentation - the original note – within 5 years of it being requested (5 years is the statute of limitation for these cases) than the homeowner is free of any obligation on the mortgage. As former federal bankruptcy Judge Glen Ayers stated, banks looking to reap the benefit of the note “may not be able to show the judge they have the right to foreclose.” More and more Judges nationwide are taking a page out of Johnny Depp’s book while they tell lender’s to “forget about it” just as he did in the 1997 film, Donnie Brasco! Regardless of how this topic affects you directly, it’s truly important that you’re informed and aware of the conversations taking place around you. As always, I welcome all questions and or concerns pertaining to real estate lending on my cell phone, 925-726-1444, or via email, tfreymortgages@yahoo.com. – Advertisement

Scope of after-school program broadens by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer When Oakley Union Elementary School District (OUESD) officials launched their Extended Day Learning Centers program at the start of the school year, the plan was to provide parents with affordable, local daycare options at the primary-school level. “We really wanted to offer parents a safe and positive after-school option,” said Maryann Hussey, OUESD assistant superintendent of Student Services. “And I think we did. This year we had approximately 175 to 200 students enrolled in the program. It’s been very successful.” So successful, in fact, that when students return to the classroom in August, families will have an additional after-school option, this time for their middle school students. It’s called Extended Day Youth Centers, and beginning Aug. 1, middle school students at O’Hara Park and Delta Vista will be eligible to participate in the after-school-only program. Operating on the same premise as the Extended Day Learning Centers with an emphasis not only on extended days but extended learning, the middle school version will cater to the pre-teen mindset. “There will be the same elements as the elementary program, such as tutoring, enrichment classes such as art, music and

some drama,” said Hussey. “But there will also be options such as community service and career exploration; especially as they get ready for high school. Right now when I talk to students about the future, they think I’m talking about Friday night. We want to get them thinking about setting some goals.” The program will be offered after school (noon on Wednesdays for the district’s minimum days) starting at the end of the school day until 6 p.m. Students will attend the program at their regular school site and, as with the elementary program, be served by OUESD employees, teachers and staff. For those looking down the road, such as Laurel Elementary Librarian Lauri Seeno, the middle school program is a nice option. “This (elementary) program has been a wonderful option for us,” said Seeno, whose 9-year-old son participates in the afterschool program. “The program is great and they have a wonderful curriculum. When he gets to middle school we’ll probably take advantage of that, too.” Sign-ups are currently underway and copies of the Extended Day Youth Centers handbook and applications are available online at www.ouesd.k12.ca.us. The monthly cost of the program is $235 for five days, $144 for three days and $25 for Wednesdays only. For more information, call 925-625-0700. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Liberty students create Delta mural Numerous Liberty Union High School District (LUHSD) and Brentwood city officials gathered at King Park to acknowledge the talent and dedication of the Liberty students who created a mural depicting the underwater world of the Delta. “This mural represents the outstanding result of great cooperation between and among city and school personnel and members of the community,” said LUHSD Board President Ray Valverde. Collaborating in the creation of the mural were Liberty’s Arts and Humanities Academy staff and the community, including the Brentwood City Council and Art Commission. Academy teachers Katie Collins and Lloyd Cornwell thanked a long list of contributors as Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor led the ribbon-cutting ceremony, expressing hope that the mural would be only the beginning of student artwork enhancing the beauty of Brentwood. For nearly 20 years, LUHSD has supported academy programs at Liberty, Freedom and Heritage High Schools that provide directed career study for students in various fields. Liberty’s Art Academy will receive nearly $100,000 over two years from the California Department of Education’s Partnership grant program. The City of Brentwood provided further funding for the mural and has helped facilitate the creative process and protect the artwork from graffiti and vandalism.

The first SWAT team was organized in the 1960s by the Los Angeles Police Department in response to sniper attacks. Brentwood’s SWAT team responds to a variety of emergencies, including hostage rescue and barricaded suspect apprehension. Attendees will learn about SWAT weapons, covert surveillance technology and ballistic protection. The free, 45-minute program, designed for school-age kids and teens, is sponsored in partnership with the Friends of the Brentwood Library.

The 70-member Summerset Singers chorus perform at the new Brentwood Civic Center Auditorium on Sunday, June 24 at 2:30 p.m. The program features more than a dozen choral selections, including a long medley from the hit Broadway show “The Music Man.” But “The Music Man” is just the tip of the performance iceberg. The audience will be treated to Elton John’s “Circle of Life” plus “You Raise Me Up” as recorded by Josh Groban. Among other works on the program are “Requerdo,” specially written for the Singers by music professor Nancy Bachman, and Händel’s “Holy Art Thou.” For the first time in Summerset Singers’ performance history, the ensemble will be joined by Singers’ grandchildren, who will bring an angelic aura to “A Place in the Choir” and “Dona Nobis Pacem,” arranged by chorus music director Ernie Macintyre.

Clients come into my office every week saying that they are in a debt settlement plan/ consolidation plan, BUT are now (a) being sued by a creditor or (b) they have received a 1099c income statement from a creditor that was included in the debt settlement plan or (c) have other debts not included. How can this be? First, just because you are in a debt settlement plan, it does not mean that a creditor cannot sue you on an account. It happens every day. In some cases, the lawsuit is because a debt could not be included in the settlement because a creditor would not agree. In other cases, the reason for the lawsuit was that the creditor was not receiving payments from the debt settlement plan in an amount that would satisfy the creditor. Second, just because you are in a debt settlement plan, it does not mean that the creditor will not issue you a 1099c for that portion of the debt which is forgiven. In fact, the IRS REQUIRES creditors to issue a 1099c to individuals where more than $600 in debt is forgiven. Therefore, if you settle with a VISA for $5,000 on a $50,000 bill, you will receive a $45,000 1099c which will be considered income to you and will be taxed at your current tax rate. Third, just because you are in a debt settlement/consolidation plan, it does not mean that your credit will not be affected or that creditors will stop calling you. Creditors can still contact you for the collection of debts they are owed unless or until you file bankruptcy. Also, a debt settlement program will impact your credit in the future and have long-term side effects because you will have late payments and even when you settle, your credit report will not show

that the account was paid in full. Debt settlement plans are alternatives to bankruptcy. If you do not qualify for bankruptcy, then you will have no choice but to proceed with the settlement or consolidation plan. However, most people DO qualify for bankruptcy and in fact, most qualify for a Chapter 7 which requires NO payments back to creditors. Even, if you do not qualify for a Chapter 7, the payments in Chapter 13 will in almost every instance be significantly lower than what you are paying to the debt settlement or consolidation company and in most cases you will be paying NO interest on the debt. Better yet, there will be no 1099c received after the bankruptcy because Bankruptcy is one of the exceptions to the debt forgiveness rule. In conclusion, these are very tough times. You are not alone. If you are having trouble paying your bills as they come due, I recommend you seek legal counsel before you enter into a debt settlement or consolidation plan. Know all of your options and then you will be able to make the best decision for you and your family. I see people for a FREE 30 minute consultation at my offices locate in Walnut Creek and Brentwood.

Remind kids to stay safe Editor: As we approach the closing of our schools for summer break, we must recognize that this will be the beginning of our children spending a lot more time out and about on our neighborhood streets. I am asking all of us to be especially safe drivers during these months. In 2009, 4,092 pedestrians were killed and an estimated 59,000 were injured in traffic collisions in the United States. Pedestrian deaths account for 12 percent of all traffic-related deaths. Forty-eight percent of all pedestrians killed in the United States died in crashes that occurred on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, which indicates that those days of the week could represent seven days of the week during the summer for children. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, hybrid vehicles have a much higher rate of being involved in pedestrian accidents. A study conducted by the University of California Riverside found that hybrids operating at slower speeds must be 40-percent closer to pedestrians before they make enough noise to be heard. On average, a pedestrian was killed every two hours and injured every nine minutes in auto accidents in our nation. Children at age 15 and younger accounted for 7 percent of the pedestrian fatalities in 2008 and 22 percent of all pedestrians injured in traffic accidents.

TO THE

We must remember that children are caught up in the moment (or their smart phones), and may dart out into the street, not realizing that a vehicle is close by. And when our kids are not on foot, bicycle safety is equally important. Thirteen percent of all fatal bicycle accidents affect children under the age of 16 and comprise 25 percent of those injured. Twenty-eight percent of all fatal bicycle accidents occur between the hours of 5 and 9 p.m. In light of these glaring and tragic statistics, it is imperative that we all remind our children to be safe pedestrians and cyclists – to never assume that they have the right of way, and to be aware of their surroundings at all times. In addition, adults and teenagers need to be reminded that they should be cautious drivers, especially during the summer, when there are larger numbers of children enjoying outdoor activities throughout our community’s streets. If we all work together on this, our children and our families will certainly have a more safe and enjoyable summer. Dr. Joseph A. Ovick Superintendent of Schools Contra Costa County

Institute of the Bay Area (IIBA) hosted a Citizenship Drive at O’Hara Park Middle School, and would like to thank everyone that helped make this event a success. We would like to thank The Friends of Oakley, and Oakley residents Julie and Alan Hartford for making a generous contribution to our Citizenship Drive. Combined, The Friends of Oakley and the Hartfords sponsored 15 Oakley residents by paying their $40 registration fee. The Citizenship Drive would not have been possible without the help of our amazing volunteers, who recognized the need to help others on their path to citizenship. We would like to extend our gratitude to all of the legal and non-legal volunteers who dedicated their time and expertise to our community: Winnie Inago, Yolanda Diaz, Mary Guzman, Beatriz Rodriguez, Adriana Rodriguez, Noor Abdullah, Erika Ramirez, Nonie Reyes, David Alejandro Lopez, Alondra Lopez, Emilia Rodriguez, Gabriela Narez, Gabriela Melena, Alfredo Coronel, Karla Rodriguez, Stephanie Zelidon, Gaynell Braxton, Patricia Sanche, Darlene Dulick, Aislinn Miller, Michael Epstein, Jaime Cader, Spoimie Nasiri, Eleonore Zwinges, Teresa Alonso-Bray, Silky Sahnan, Elisa Duarte, Rekha Tavva, Ana Villanueva, Caroline Donohue, Justin Skinner, Ildar Hafizor, Sheryl Munoz-Bergman and Dannhae Herrera Wilson. There were also others who volun-

teered their time for this event and we would like to give a special thanks to O’Hara Park Principal Roger Macdonald and the Oakley Union Elementary School District for allowing us to use O’Hara Park Middle School to host the drive and for helping us coordinate all the details behind the scenes, which allowed us to have an incredibly organized event. From the OUESD, we would like to thank Ed Zurawski, Mario Gutierrez, Leo Ibarra and Robert Gregory, who helped us make all the logistical arrangements necessary for the event. We would also like to thank Liberty Adult Education and the Liberty Union High School District for coordinating with us in order to provide civics classes for the participants here in Oakley. Food and beverages were donated for the volunteers by Los Panchos of Pleasant Hill and by Guzman Legal Firm from Concord. We would also like to thank the Starbucks located on Main Street in Oakley for offering a special deal on the coffee that helped fuel all the volunteers throughout the event. With no doubt, this citizenship drive was truly a community event that brought together a diverse group of organizations/institutions, volunteers, businesses and, of course, applicants who are now on their way to becoming citizens of the U.S. and fully functional members of our community and civic life.

Heritage ace drafted by Chicago Cubs by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer Heritage High pitcher Paul Blackburn, the Bay Valley Athletic League baseball MVP, will head from the East Bay to the North Side. Blackburn was drafted Monday night by the Chicago Cubs in the first compensation round. He was the 56th player selected overall and the first-ever Heritage baseball player to be taken in the Major League Baseball Draft. “It was pretty exciting,” Blackburn said. “The Cubs haven’t won in a long time, so if I decide to sign, then hopefully I can bring that to them.” This season, Blackburn earned his second consecutive league MVP award. He went 10-3 with a 0.93 earned run average, striking out 100 and walking 18. Scouts like Blackburn’s fastball, which clocks in at about 92 miles per hour, and his poise. “Paul possesses the attributes we look for in a HS right-handed pitcher in that he shows present command of three pitches with an efficient delivery and clean mechanics,” Jason McLeod, Cubs vice president of Scouting and Player Development, wrote in an e-mail. “As with all HS pitchers, there will be a development path ahead of him

Heritage senior right-handed pitcher Paul Blackburn, seen here pitching against Deer Valley, finds himself in the enviable position of choosing between attending Arizona State and signing a contract with the Chicago Cubs. but we are confident that his work ethic and makeup will allow him to get the most of his abilities.” As Blackburn has a full-ride scholarship from Arizona State on the table, he has

a big decision to make. The pitcher said he’s talking it over with his parents and isn’t sure which way he’s leaning. He knew there was a chance he could go on the first day of the draft, but the

second round more likely. He held a small viewing party at his house and celebrated with family and friends. “When they called his name, it was just surreal,” said Patriots manager Kevin Brannan, who watched the draft with other Heritage coaches. “As long as he continues to physically get bigger and stronger, I really feel that he’s one of those kids that has the moxie or the guts to go through this.” Blackburn is the highest BVAL draftee since Liberty pitcher Chris Gruler was taken third overall by the Cincinnati Reds in 2002. The Patriot was not the only local to hear his name called. In the 20th round of the draft, Antioch alumnus Nick Pasquale was selected by the Cleveland Indians. Pasquale went 12-3 this season for the Diablo Valley College Vikings with a 1.88 ERA. Pasquale, who signed a letter of intent in November to attend North Carolina State, must also decide between college and the pros. “(I’m) excited and overwhelmed with all kinds of emotions,” Pasquale told The Press on Twitter. “Thankful for the opportunity.” As a Panther, Pasquale earned firstteam all-league honors in 2009, his senior year. He struck out 68 batsmen that season. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Chiropractor adjusts to win open-water swim by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer When Discovery Bay chiropractor Rick Pierce finished the Bridge to Bridge Sunday, all he knew was that no one else was around, and the lead boat was floating beside him. Thirty seconds later and a judge looking him in the face, he discovered he had won the race. “I didn’t know for sure,” Pierce said. “I had to ask him what place I got.” The 6.2-mile race started at the south tower of the Golden Gate Bridge and ended at the Bay Bridge. Although the race is timed so the currents favor the swimmers, the competitors are forced to battle through rough conditions. “This is a swim where the competitor finds different temperatures and different choppy conditions during the race,” said Pedro Ordenes, American and World Coach Association swim director. Pierce shook off the difficult surroundings, and about 20 other swimmers, to finish at 9 a.m. in 1:31:52. The course and conditions were so challenging that competitors with limited swimming experience were forced to complete a trial course to ensure their safety. For Pierce, the win was a culmination of hard work. For the past five months, he swam up to three miles three times per week to condition himself for the

rough open-water swim in 55-degree water. But nothing could prepare him for what he encountered. Pierce said the currents flooding into the bay forced him to change his strategy. To make matters more difficult, Sunday’s race was the longest of Pierce’s swimming career. In addition to the Bridge to Bridge, he has participated in eight 1.25mile races. Pierce didn’t know what to expect when he entered the race, but wanted to challenge himself while doing the best he could. With about a mile to go, however, he realized he was in position to win. “I was tired at the end,” Pierce said. “I felt like I was spinning my arms. I didn’t see very many swimmers around.” Pierce needed every stroke to overtake the leaders and stay in front, according to Water World Swim coach Noelle Christensen. “The race was really amazing,” she said. “He was not leading the race at first, but he took a different angle, caught the leaders and went right past them.” Christensen said it takes a special skill set to win open-water competitions, which require swimmers to battle stiff currents and swim when it feels like they’re going nowhere. “It’s crazy that people actually do this for fun,” Christensen said. “To finish a swim like this is really sweet.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Brentwood trainer pushes it to the limit by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer It’s Monday evening and Brentwood residents Vivian Szeles, Thatiana Salinas and Lori Huchton are pushing a one-ton 1982 GMC Suburban behind the LA Boxing building. The truck actually runs just fine. The trios’ exertions are part of a workout routine led by local personal trainer Jose Garcia, who specializes in combat sport recovery, therapeutic recovery, mobile training and contest preparation. He has worked with everyone from pre-teen kickboxers and mothers to mixed martial arts fighters and Ms. Olympia contestants. Most famously, Garcia has served as physical therapist for MMA fighters Nick and Nate Diaz, working with Nick when the Stockton-based athlete took on renowned fighters BJ Penn and Paul Daley. Garcia has also trained triathletes. But no matter how famous or obscure his clients are, Garcia treats them all with respect. “I’m so blessed because this is my passion,” Garcia said. “I want to give everyone a chance to see what intensity is, and what recovery’s about – the full package. Being able to build you mentally, break you down physically and repair your recovery to become a mentally stronger person, physically stronger and a high-spirited person.” His clients swear by his techniques.

lized Garcia’s Body By Jose boot camp after injuring her back and neck in a car accident. She said she’s worked with other personal trainers, but none were as positively motivating as Garcia. Since starting the boot camp, Perry has dropped 15 pounds and three pant sizes. She’s now back in front of the camera. “I’ve met with a lot of trainers because of my profession, and he’s by far the best,” Perry said. “He doesn’t take failure as an option. He pushes you and drives you.” Garcia grew up in a rough neighborhood – Tondo, Manila in the Philippines – where he described his upbringing as “Spartan.” His

family moved to Oakland when Garcia was 10, and he excelled as a wrestler and football player in high school. But when as a senior he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in one of his knees, he was forced to re-evaluate his life. “I wanted to learn more about the body and how to make it work,” Garcia said. “I didn’t think I’d be able to walk again.” Garcia started taking nursing courses at Chabot College, intending to become a physician one day, but found he enjoyed training with fellow football players more than schooling. He got a job at a gym, where he found his niche. After his brother, Joseph Garcia, suffered

from a defective heart valve and recovered from a coma, the siblings decided to go into business together. With financial help from their mother, they opened up the LA Boxing franchise at Garin Ranch. Now Jose Garcia works as a trainer at LA Boxing and Joseph handles the business side. Jose loves watching people change for the better as they go through his program. As evidenced by the truck push, Garcia has come up with some innovative ways to promote exertion. He has also started training via the video instant messaging system Skype. After initiating this program, Garcia’s clientele grew from the Bay Area to the world. Now he has clients in such far-flung places as Hong Kong, Sydney and Hawaii. Garcia is in the process of branching out from Brentwood and working with clients throughout the Bay Area, bringing his brand of training to various gyms. He looks forward to working with all kinds of people, such as those who want to simply tone up and drop a few pounds, or others looking to sweat it out for a total body renovation. Salinas tried working out at other gyms in the area, but didn’t find the right fit until she started training with Garcia at LA Boxing. “He’s good if you want to see fast results – he will get you there,” Salinas said. “I lost 10 pounds and I’m more toned. I’m happy. I can’t see myself missing one day at the gym.” Go to www.bodybyjose.com for more information. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Fire from page 1A million to make ends meet. A disappointed Fire Chief Hugh Henderson said the board next week will consider two alternatives developed earlier as a contingency should Measure S fail. One is a three-station model staffing three firefighters at each, which would place nine firefighters on duty at all times in the district. The other is a four-station model staffing two firefighters at each, putting a total of eight firefighters on duty. “Neither service model is going to make anybody happy,” Henderson said Wednesday. “We have to just put the best service out there we can.” According to Oakley resident Dave Roberts, an outspoken opponent of the tax, the defeat of Measure S was not surprising, given the state of the economy and the massive pension debt facing the

COMMUNITY

district. “Had the fire district done everything it could to cut costs, the voters might have looked more favorably on this significant tax hike,” said Roberts. Freezing salaries, cutting overtime, reducing pensions and hiring more paid-on-call firefighters all should be on the table for possible reductions, he said, as should investigating the hiring of a private-sector fire protection service. “Whichever course the district chooses, it won’t be easy,” Roberts added. “But just as over-taxed taxpayers have had to tighten their belts, so should the government.” Measure S supporters who gathered at a local restaurant Tuesday evening to watch returns come in were saddened by the results and shocked at the size of the defeat. President Vince Wells of firefighter

Union Local 1230 believes a critical publicsafety problem was overwhelmed when the discussion turned from the short-term effort to keep stations open to the long-term need for benefit reform. “Unfortunately, a message got out there that this was about pensions,” Wells said. “Hopefully, another plan will come forward, but I’m not optimistic they will have anything in place too soon.” As many as 19 firefighters are facing layoffs, including Kalani Dillon, a captain at Bethel Island’s Station 95, which is expected to be one of the stations closed. It is the loss of so many dedicated locals, many of whom served as paid-on-call firefighters for years prior to becoming full-timers, that is most upsetting. “It’s not the money and it’s not pensions,” he said. “It’s all the local boys who are losing their jobs. Some of us have

JUNE 8, 2012

turned down better-paying jobs in other departments to stay and serve this community, and then this happens. It hurts.” Henderson said next week’s fire board meeting would decide which stations would close, and that a final budget required to implement the changes would go before the board for a vote on June 25. Layoffs and station closures would take effect on July 1. “As chief, I couldn’t be any prouder of the firefighters who have continued to put in 110 percent through all of this,” Henderson said, adding that that the stiffupper-lip attitude that has long maintained morale in the chronically underfunded department has taken a huge hit. “This,” Henderson said, “was overwhelming.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Heritage from page 1A Walnut Creek-based attorney Peter Johnson, representing the families of 12 of the suspended students, said the seniors’ transcripts will be on hold until the matter is resolved. “I don’t feel good about the fact that the stay wasn’t issued,” Johnson said. “I can’t assure them they’ll be able to do all of their finals, and they won’t be able to walk at commencement.” Another hearing, scheduled at the Martinez courthouse for Thursday, June 14 at 9 a.m., will deal with the legality of a school withholding final exams during a suspension. Johnson and Heritage principal Larry Oshodi said several teachers approve of the suspension and are not likely to grant make-up exams. The principal believes that the students’ actions crossed the line from pranksterism to vandalism. But some students feel otherwise. “Our teachers are inappropriate,” said suspended senior Zach Szopinski. “The teachers are treating us like we’re grade-A criminals.” Oshodi said students were warned beforehand that any act of vandalism as a result of a senior prank would lead to discipline, including suspensions and the inability to participate in the commencement ceremony. Originally, the length of the suspension was five days, but district officials shortened it to two.

Heritage High School officials discovered graffiti praising the Class of 2010 painted all over Heritage High School administration buildings on Monday. Officials doubt that it was related to the Class of 2012 prank on Saturday that resulted in the suspension of roughly 30 students. Photo by Justin Lafferty

Ray Valverde, president of the LUHSD Board, agreed with Oshodi’s ruling. He noted that nearly all the suspended students should have earned enough credits to receive diplomas, but their grade point average would be hurt. “Anybody’s entitled to legal action,” Valverde said, “but we’ve used taxpayers’ money to build the school and we have a responsibility not only to the Heritage community but to the whole district to protect our interest.” The lamb, which Brentwood police found chained to a light pole on campus early Monday morning, is in good health. According to Abe Gamez, deputy director of Contra Costa County Animal Services, the lamb was not injured and will be held at the county facility in Martinez until someone adopts it or it is turned over to a rescue group. Volta believes that a group of students purchased the lamb. Most of the paint has been cleaned up, but faint red marks still stain the concrete on various parts of the campus. Oshodi said many of the banners stolen early Friday morning have since been recovered. A concrete bench was moved around,

and stickers reading “I don’t give a (expletive), I’m a senior” were posted all over the school. Oshodi also found one of those stickers on his door. “Is the suspension appropriate? Yes it is,” Oshodi said Monday. “It’s what we would’ve done any other time of year.” Szopinski said the only planned prank was for students to dip their feet in washable paint and run around campus as a way to leave their mark. But according to Szopinski, things got out of hand. He claims that he had already left by the time another group of students brought a sheep to campus and chained it to a light pole. The students in question feel that by going back on Sunday to clean their mess, as well as publically apologizing, they’ve paid their penalty and should be allowed to walk with their classmates. Seniors also stood outside the school Monday morning, holding signs that read “Sorry” and other expressions of remorse. At Tuesday’s hearing in Martinez, students and parents registered their objections to Heritage’s leadership, stating that the decision to suspend was heavyhanded. Students said the prank started innocently, but spun out of control. Par-

ents are worried that the decision to bar students from taking final exams could be disastrous to their college plans. Oshodi said Monday that most suspended students would be allowed to receive their diplomas, but their grade point average would suffer as a result. “The process that the school did was unduly – it wasn’t the correct way,” said Marcie, a mother of a suspended senior. “I’d rather have them go to the police to find the real other people. It’s not fair that my son got suspended. What about all the other kids?” Remarks painted all over windows on campus, apparently generated by the Class of 2010, were discovered Monday morning. But Heritage officials believe they were unrelated to the prior prank. Oshodi was shocked and saddened when he found them and expressed hope that defacing school property doesn’t become an annual tradition at Brentwood’s newest high school. There has also been evidence of students making threats against fellow classmates accused of snitching – another grievance Heritage officials are taking seriously.

For Dad: marvels from the Man Cave CHARLOTTE CUSACK

“T

as he gestured enthusiastically to the variety of wares that fill his Brentwood store. The small retail space that opened April 1 is loaded – floor to ceiling, wall to wall – with surprising steals Mengel has scored from garage and estate sales plus consigners. “Nothing in the store would be considered a need,” said Mengel. “It’s all a want.” For a guy who runs a consignment store, Mengel oddly enough isn’t a collector himself, and hasn’t created a man cave of his own at home. “It’s part of the green way of thinking,” he said. “I never buy anything ON THE COVER: Whether the dad in your life likes rock ‘n’ roll, baseball or beer, Man Cave Consignment owner Dave Mengel has something that will make him smile.

new. I consider myself a ‘picker,’ meaning I go out and bring in inventory. I know what I need, and I know what things are worth. We’ve been slowly evolving and picking up things that people think are cool.” Case in point: Oakley resident Val Valerio recently brought in an item for consignment and stopped in his tracks once he got a glimpse of a picture signed by Ted Williams and Mickey Mantle. “As I was looking around,” said

Valerio, “I thought, ‘I cannot pass that up. I have to buy it!’” Man Cave Consignment stocks an abundance of ideal Father’s Day gifts. Mengel invites gifters to skip the starched shirts and cutesy coffee mugs and take dad on a shopping safari he’ll actually enjoy. He’ll find neon beer signs, a pre-1940s bamboo fly rod and framed, signed sports memorabilia. Golf clubs. Vinyl music. Vintage camping equipment. Collectible

Hot Wheels. Giants paraphernalia. An Erector set from 1964. Lucchese singlequill, ostrich-skin cowboy boots. Jack Londonesque snowshoes. Exercise equipment.

Man Cave from page 3B and exciting,” said Man Cave Consignment employee Randal Mori. “The days I don’t work, I’m eager to come back and see what’s new.” Approximately 50 items arrive daily, so the inventory is constantly changing. The concept behind Man Cave Consignment is that folks bring in their stuff and it’s put up for sale “as is,” and the consigner and Man Cave split the revenue 50/50. “I’m not looking for garage-sale leftovers; I’m looking for the things that people want to show off to their friends,” said Mengel. “The nicer the piece, the faster it sells.” Man Cave Consignment displays an item for 90 days. If the item doesn’t sell, it gets returned to the owner or goes up for auction and sells to the highest bidder. (Mengel welcomes auction-only items as

well.) The initial Man Cave Consignment auction premieres Sunday, July 8 from 5 to 7 p.m. Information regarding big-ticket items (priced at $500 and higher) will be published online for potential bidders. The outdoor event features a celebrity auctioneer plus food and beverages available for purchase. Depending on the success of the inaugural event, Mengel intends to hold an auction every month. “Guys like a real eclectic mix of stuff,” said Mengel. “I have a little bit of everything that guys are going to get excited about.” Man Cave Consignment, located at 3850 Balfour Road, Suite M in Brentwood, is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information, visit www.mancaveconsignment.net or call 925-420-5614.

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.

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 714573-1965 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-11- 480881-CT .

A local slice of cheesecake heaven by Veronica Hanel Correspondent The latest business to enjoy an official ribbon-cutting welcome from the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce might be one of the city’s cheesiest establishments – and that’s a good thing. Last Friday, the chamber held a ceremony to officially welcome locally owned business Heavenly Cheesecakes & More into the community. “Friends had been telling me to open up a shop for ages,” said co-owner Shellie Hirsch. “It’s only just now that I’ve finally accomplished that.” As the new store’s recipes for the classic dessert contain no eggs and sidestep many other traditional ingredients, Hirsch and co-owner Maria Martinek provide their customers with a one-of-akind product – a unique and creamy treat fit for any occasion. “I really love cheesecake, and when I tried this one, I knew it was a real original,” said Betty Gaughan, one of the many who attended Friday’s event. In addition to the cheesecakes, attendees enjoyed the chance to win dessert raffle prizes. While Hirsch’s unique cakes will

melt on any cheesecake lover’s tastebuds, she acknowledges that it took more than unique ingredients to get cooking. “It’s so much more than the recipe that got us here,” she said. “There was a lot of support; a lot of people helped push us to do this.” That support and inspiration stems largely from Hirsch and Martinek’s armyenlisted sons, who have inspired Heavenly Cheesecakes’ goal to give back to the America. Customers who support our military by wearing red on Fridays receive a discount, and a portion of proceeds from the sale of red velvet cheesecakes go directly to aid U.S. troops. Heavenly Cheesecakes & More offerings include Pineapple Side-Up Cheesecake, Caramel Pecan Cheesecake, Triple Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake, Zinfully Delicious Cheesecake, and dozens more. The store also offers gluten-free recipies plus an array of cupcakes and other baked yummies from Kianna Gendotti of Kiki’s Cupcakery at the same location. Heavenly Cheesecakes & More, located at 3101 Balfour Road in Brentwood, is open Mondays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
