Top Model tryouts come to Brentwood by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

It’s time to start dusting off your runway strut – America’s Next Top Model is coming to Brentwood. Producers from the popular model competition reality show will be at the Streets of Brentwood on Saturday, July 10 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for an open casting call, the show’s only Northern California audition for Cycle 16. While host Tyra Banks will not be present for this preliminary audition, Streets of Brentwood General Manager Tracey Nobil said the event will be the opportunity of a lifetime. “We’re really excited to be hosting the Northern California auditions this year,” Nobil said. “While the casting call is open to anyone in the United States, at least one person from this casting call is guaranteed to move on to the next round of auditions, so who knows? Maybe someone from Brentwood or our neighboring cities will have a shot at becoming America’s Next

Top Model.” While the show’s producers have visited the Bay Area in the past, Nobil said they wanted to step outside of San Francisco to reach a new demographic by staging this year’s auditions in Contra Costa County. Auditions will take place at the Broadway Under the Stars stage, located across from the soccer field. Po t e n t i a l contestants must be female United States citizens between the ages of 18 and 27. While the contest’s height requirement states that applicants must be at least 5 feet 7 inches or taller, producers reserve the right to make caseby-case exceptions. Applicants are requested to bring a portfolio consisting of three photos: a close-up shot, a full-length photo with entire body clothed, and a full-length photo with the applicant wearing a swimsuit. Applicants will also be asked to demonstrate their best runway walk. Those who plan to audition must see Auditions page 15A

Liberty High School teacher Beth Decker has entered a contest to become the next queen of daytime talk in the Your OWN Show competition hosted by Oprah Winfrey. Decker’s idea for the talk show is based on her Get Real! classroom courses. Press file photo

Liberty teacher to Get Real! for Oprah by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Last year, the continued success of her reality-check course called Get Real! and the nationwide publication of the program’s workbook prompted Beth Decker’s students to ask the Liberty High School teacher if her next step might be an appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” Turns out, it might well be. Decker, who teaches a course for

freshman called Foundations for Success, has thrown her hat into the Oprah “Your OWN Show” ring – a competition dreamed up by Lady O to find the successor to her talk show crown. “I submitted a video based on their (the Winfrey show’s) rules and we’ll see what happens,” said Decker. “I’m an Oprah fan and I thought it might be fun to see what happens. You never know.” see Oprah page 15A

Salvation Army still makes a difference by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Major Jacqueline Vaughnes-Smith is an officer in the Salvation Army, and every day she fights for the welfare of residents – especially young people – throughout East County. It’s hard, often heartbreaking work demanding long hours but little pay, but if you ask the 54-year-old what she gets out of it, the answer is simple. “Well, I’m going to heaven,” laughed Vaughnes-Smith. “I am. But on a daily basis I’m just tickled to be with these kids and to help them in any way we can. Our biggest mission is to get these kids off the streets. You know the dropout rate in our area is so high, and we just try to help in whatever way we can.” Vaughnes-Smith is a tireless example of the how the 145-year-old organization’s Antioch chapter continues to make a difference. And one way the small but dedicated staff is doing that is through its successful summer camp program. Now in its 11th year, the eight-week day camp provides a positive, fun and productive program for K-7 kids. For a modest $65 per week, the camp provides breakfast, lunch and a snack, as well as outings, companionship and most importantly, learning. “This isn’t a summer day care center. Our emphasis is on the children’s incoming school year and helping them to get ready, to give them a leg up,” said Vaughnes-Smith. “But

Sign-ups for the Salvation Army’s summer day camp program in Antioch are still underway. The eight-week camp runs through August. we also have crafts and trips to places such as Chuck E. Cheese or Paradise Skate when we can. This year we have a certified lifeguard coming in to teach the children how to swim. This is the first time we’ve had this, so it’s very exciting.” And this season, due to the cancellation of the Antioch school district’s summer school program and the closure of some of the local YMCA day care programs, enrollment in the Salvation Army summer camp program is way up. “We’ve never had this many kids, and they’re coming from everywhere,” said Vaughnes-Smith. “Money is tight, but we’re going to be here for the kids. We’re going to continue

the work.” One of the ways the work continues is through private donations – something many don’t understand. “A lot of individuals think we’re funded by organizations like the United Way, but we’re not,” said Vaughnes-Smith. “All the dollars we raise are through donations we’re able to get ourselves. There is no magic Salvation Army in the sky – it stops here.” And because the economy has affected organizations such as the Salvation Army, donations are down, but the need remains high. Most well known for its holiday bell-ringing drive, the Salvation Army has in the past paid individuals to stand outside local stores and solicit donations. This year, however, the

Army is trying something different. “One of our strategies is to try and do some volunteer bell ringing,” said Vaughnes-Smith. “What we earn at the holidays is 50 percent of our yearly budget. Last year in East County we raised $78,000, but we paid out $44,000 to our workers. So we’ve developed a very aggressive campaign this year to promote volunteer bell ringers. We’re hoping it will be a success.” But if donations in volunteer time are difficult for some, donations of another kind are always welcome. “We’re always happy to get cash donations,” said Vaughnes-Smith. “That’s something we always need. But I tell people: don’t send me any old clothes or sweaters – that all goes to the adult rehab center and we get none of that (profit). Send me money; that we can always use.” And as the Salvation Army organization continues to make a difference in the lives of East County youth and residents, the lives of Vaughnes-Smith and her staff also continue to be changed. “We are blessed, all of us,” she said. “This job and this life gives me so much more than I could have imagined. I would not trade one day of it. I’ve been here for over 15 years and this is where I’ll stay. It’s a good life.” For information on the summer camp program, volunteer opportunities or to make a donation, call the Salvation Army at 925778-0808, or visit www.salvationarmy.org To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

America’s drug habit becomes Mexico’s war by Corey Hunt Correspondent Brentwood native Corey Hunt traveled to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico in the hope of giving his fellow Americans a glimpse of the situation down there – a situation that has a number of roots leading directly back to the United States, from growing drug consumption to guns and illegal immigration. This week is the first of his two-part report. I walk up to the police checkpoint, arousing suspicion from the security forces standing guard, just as any visitor would at the headquarters of Mexico’s Federal Police forces in Ciudad Juarez, a border city separated from El Paso, Texas, by the Rio Grande. Armed commandos stand around me, scanning my passport and transcribing the information on my media credentials. As a blond American from San Francisco, it’s clear that I don’t exactly fit the description of a foot soldier or an informant working at the behest of Mexico’s most infamous drug lords, but the “Federales” take no chances. Eventually, I’m escorted into the command center, a policeman at my side who, like all the federal officers who have flooded Ciudad Juarez, makes it clear that he’s in control – and carries an assault rifle to back it up. This was the scene that unfolded before I was introduced to Officer Ulises

Photo by Corey Hunt

A pickup truck filled with armed commandos patrols Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Brentwood resident Corey Hunt recently visited the city torn by drug wars to witness conditions himself. Rodriguez, who was kind enough to help answer some of my questions about Mexico’s ongoing struggle to wrest control of its northern border from drug cartels who have turned Ciudad Juarez – once an economic powerhouse and world-class city – into one of the most dangerous places in the world. Violence – often of Al-Qaeda- and jihadist-style proportions – has erupted

since the drug cartels were drawn out from the shadows and forced to protect their lucrative trade as President Felipe Calderon fights to rid Mexican society of it. At the same time, the cartels are locked in a bitter power struggle. Strongman Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who heads the powerful Sinaloa Cartel, is intent on driving out the Juarez cartel, which has traditionally controlled its namesake city.

I began by asking Rodriguez about the most recent story that put the city into the international headlines: the shooting of 15-year old Sergio Hernandez by a U.S. border patrol agent in early June. “This incident was tragic,” said Rodriguez, shaking his head. “But the U.S. authorities are professional – we have a good working relationship with them. Mexican Federal Police and the United States border patrol are working together to figure out what happened. Officials from U.S. law enforcement usually visit Juarez two or three times per week.” It remains unclear what the teenager was doing at the border, but what is clear is that he is just one of many victims – during the month of June, the city has been averaging as many as 10 homicides per day, according to statistics from the El Paso Times. However, the monthly death toll is down from last summer, which saw more than 300 killings in August. Rodriguez stressed the importance of a trustworthy relationship between the United States and Mexico, stating that the battle against drug trafficking has no boundaries and will involve cooperation on both sides of the border. While Mexico’s government and its security forces have been organizing and operating in the midst of what many observers consider a war zone, Rodriguez praised the unprecedented coordination see War page 20A


DO SHORT SALES COST ME MONEY? Every day I get a list of the homes coming up for foreclosure that day. And every day I am surprised to see that many of these homes have not been on the market recently. I always wonder why they didn’t at least try a short sale first? Maybe they’ve been told that the lender is about to approve a loan modification for them, and they get surprised when the lender actually goes ahead with the foreclosure. Often the loan modification department and the foreclosure department don’t communicate well. Or maybe the homeowner stopped opening their mail and didn’t know the foreclosure date was so close. I’ve seen lenders send the same collection letters over and over, so I can see why the homeowner stops opening the letters. Or maybe they have filed bankruptcy, and simply don’t think that a foreclosure versus a short sale will make a difference to their credit. Or maybe they are just so burned out on the process that they are just mentally and physically exhausted by the process and are just ready to be “done.” But my guess would be that many of them think that a short sale will cost them money in

the form of commissions, closing costs, etc. And since they don’t have any equity in the home, they don’t think they can afford to do a short sale. If you are in this situation, it’s important that you understand that the lender normally pays the commissions and closing costs (even past due property taxes) as part of the short sale settlement process. This means that while the homeowner won’t get any money at close of escrow, they also aren’t coming to the table with any money, either. There are a few short sales where the lender does ask the homeowner to contribute some money and/or sign a promissory note for the deficiency. But you retain veto power over that. You don’t have to move forward with the short sale if you don’t approve the terms. If you are in this situation, please call me to discuss your situation. There is no charge and no obligation.

Bay Area band The Floorshakers rock out at the Lions Club Concert last month.

DB Lions to host summer events Despite major winds, about 700 residents came out June 19 to the Discovery Bay at the Yacht Harbor and the Lions Club Concert featuring the Floorshakers. “The nine-piece band was exactly what everyone wanted to hear,” said Jim Mattison of the Lions Club. “Although it was supposed to end at 8:30, the band kept playing and the crowd kept on dancing. Everyone kept telling me what a great time they were having and asked when we were having the next concert. “We couldn’t have pulled this off without our band sponsors, Marples and Associates, California Boat Lifts, Rob Broocker Painting, and Discovery Bay Dental. We would also like to thank the Boardwalk Grill for donating a portion of its proceeds back to the Lions

Club. It was great to see so many people having such a fun time and supporting our community efforts.” Other events held by the DB Lions Club this summer include the annual Golf Challenge on Aug. 9; the Boat, Bike and Hot Rod Show on Aug. 12; and the Big Cat Poker Run on Aug. 14. On Sept. 11, the Lions hosts their Roar, Rumble & Ride – Motorcycle Poker Run, and the inaugural Car Show, as well as the popular Rally ’Round the Lake, which will be held Sept. 12. “We will also be looking to have one more concert in late August,” said Mattison.

Fun in the Sun with Oakley and Friends by Chae Heuer Correspondent The Police Department of Oakley recently became the beneficiary of the Friends of Oakley, a community foundation dedicated to improving the overall welfare of its hometown. Beneath the sweltering California sun, residents and civic servants alike gathered at O’Hara Park for the Fun in the Sun event, grooving to a lively Skynyrd-Vaughn-Setzer soundtrack and admiring the splashy colors reflecting from the rank-and-file showcase of modern and vintage cars. “We just wanted to provide a conduit for people to be helped,” said Friends of Oakley Vice President and Oakley Vice Mayor Jim Frazier when explaining the goals of his group. “We wanted to help people maintain the appearances of their property.” Frazier became concerned about residents who couldn’t meet the city’s new Property Maintenance Ordinance due to financial or other problems, and he established the Friends of Oakley to help. For this event, however, the combined donations and profit from concession sales went directly to the Oakley police. “We’re working with the police department to help build a cover for two motorcycles they use,” said Frazier, “and when they have an animal they need to pick up for animal control, we’re looking to build a shelter to house these animals.” The event’s first highlight was the K-9

Canine deputy Bronco demonstrates how to take a bite out of crime with the help of officers Donald Patchin, left, and Robert Roberts during the Friends of Oakley event last weekend. Unit demonstration. Officer Robert Roberts donned a heavy bite-proof vest and demonstrated the awesome force of canine jaws. “We train at least two times a month for 16 hours just to keep the dogs maintained,” said Officer Donald Patchin, one of the dog’s handlers. “Prior to being deployed on the street, they go through two months of training.” When unleashed on Roberts, the speed and ferocity of the canine enforcer eliciting a chorus of awe-struck exclamations from those

in attendance, yet the dog was sufficiently under control to obey Patchin’s commands. Audience member Jennifer Leiber brought her children to the event to “show the kids how powerful an animal can be.” Young audience member Jacks Cooper said, “It was cool.” Augmenting the coolness factor was the car contest, providing approximately 50 sleek and shiny entries for attendees to judge. Best of Show and the People’s Choice Award went

to Mel and Linda Swafford’s 1960 Ford Galaxy Star Liner, prompting a beaming Mel to concede, “I have to give all the appreciation to my wife, who let me piss away all the money!” Mayor Pat Anderson, who also serves as the Friends of Oakley foundation’s secretary, was optimistic that Fun In the Sun will draw a larger crowd in years to come. “This event was double the crowd last year. We’re anticipating next year it will look double again!” Some event-goers, however, expressed concern about how Fun In the Sun was publicized. Swafford said that “they need to advertise more. If they do, these events would be a lot bigger.” “We’d love to have more volunteers,” said Frazier. “We plan to publicize ourselves through articles such as these to get people interested.” Fun In the Sun benefited not only local police, but the people of Oakley. “It gives community pride,” said Chief of Police Chris Thorsen. “It shows what the taxpayer’s money goes to. Ninety percent of our people have no contact with the police, and it’s good for the good people of this community to see the police in a different light.” Officer Roberts smiled, motioning toward the throng of Oakleyites laughing, admiring the cars and enjoying the delicious barbecue from the concession stand. “This type of event brings everybody together,” he said, “and helps others realize what we do for the community.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Assembly honors local businessman Wangeman At an event held recently in Sacramento, Assemblymember Joan Buchanan joined other members of the California legislature and the California Small Business Association in honor of Jim Wangeman, owner of Brentwood’s Harvest Park Bowl, as the Small Business Owner of the Year in Assembly District 15. “I am delighted to recognize Jim Wangeman,” said Buchanan. “Through his hard work and commitment to civic engagement, Harvest Park Bowl is an example of what small businesses means to the local economy.” Harvest Park Bowl in Brentwood hosts a regular program of bowling events and has

donated more than 21,000 free bowling games to local youth during the summer months. Since 1997, Wangeman has created numerous community partnerships with local organizations and nonprofits, donating $170,000 in scholarships. He has served 13 years on the Board of Directors of Sutter Delta Hospital, seven years as vice president of REACH program, and is a member of the Brentwood Rotary Club. Wangeman has also served on the Board of Directors of California Bowling Proprietors and as Pacific Coast regional director of National Bowling Proprietors Association of America.

With the United States run at the 2010 FIFA World Cup officially over, we should reflect on just how far our “young” squad has come: roughly 40 journalists followed the United States National team throughout their stint at the 2010 World Cup. This figure was more than double that of the 2002 World Cup and, according to U.S. Soccer spokesman Michael Kammarman, included journalists from Italy and the Czech Republic. I compare 2002 to 2010 just to see how things evolve, progress, and become better… In 2002, many loan officers – not all, but way too many – acted more like “order takers” than “lending leaders.” If someone wanted a house, and they had a pulse, they could afford a house. “Stated” loans were “the future” and allowed everyone a piece of the American dream. At that time pre-approval was no more than a credit score and a “stated” income…pre-qualification did not even exist. Fast forward to 2010, and, just as the United States national soccer team was taken a bit more serious in their 2010 bid for the Cup, the lending industry is being taken much more seriously and its processes have evolved. The first step to homeownership is now pre-qualification; a one page form that includes an authorization to run credit and a “guesstimated” income supplied by potential buyer without any documents to

back it up. This form, and the information it supplies, will allow the lender to determine whether or not it is worth the potential buyer’s time to put together the documents needed for a real pre-approval. This real pre-approval is the most important document one can receive before shopping homes, and is a much more thorough process in 2010. Pre-approval, in its entirety, is now a complete loan application package which could appropriately be submitted to underwriting at anytime. It includes a completed four page loan application, two months worth of bank statements, the last two years of federal tax returns (and any/all accompanying schedules), and a month worth of pay-check stubs. It is serious business, and buyers who are looking to be taken seriously NEED to go through this process. Lender’s pre-approval letters should now be accompanied by proof of the funds needed to close, as well as an automated underwriting system (AUS) approval. If your lender is not supplying your Realtor with this information, simply put, they have not evolved with the times, and, they are not working for you to protect your best interests. 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

Discovery Bay closer to getting center by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

For the first time in more than a decade, a decision on a site for Discovery Bay’s community center appears to be close at hand, and while no final announcement on the location has been made, town officials are hopeful a deal will soon be struck. “This is a good, positive step forward,” said Discovery Bay General Manager Rick Howard. “We will work collectively toward locating a community center.” In a closed session meeting held June 27, the CSD board unanimously agreed to continue negotiations with the county and the Hofmann Company for the property located at 1520 Discovery Bay Blvd. as the potential site for the town’s community center. While terms of the negotiations have not been made public, CSD President Kevin Graves said the board is definitely interested in the Discovery Bay shopping center location as a prime site for the longawaited community center: “I think it is an extremely viable option and I can say that the board was very pleased to have an offer. And we look forward to negotiations going forward at this point.” The years-long search for a community center site began in the 1990s, when Discovery Bay’s original developer, the

The site at 1520 Discovery Bay Blvd. is being considered a front-runner for the town’s community center location. Hofmann Company, was required to set aside property for the town’s community center and contribute 50 percent (approximately $875,000) to the total cost of the project. To date, the town has secured roughly $530,000 in funding. Two sites were originally selected as possible locations for a community center. The first was a parcel of land in the county’s agricultural core off Bixler Road. But because the county stipulates that recreational facilities cannot be built on agricultural lands, the site was deemed unsuitable.

The second site, and the one for which Hofmann originally set aside dollars, is a 2-acre site on Newport Road. The CSD, however, has long rejected the property for its secluded location and has advocated instead for the more traffic-friendly 2.9-acre location on the corner of Sand Point Road and Discovery Bay Boulevard – the site that was the topic of discussion at the closed-session meeting. Although the CSD has no official say as to which location is ultimately chosen – that decision is negotiated between the

county and the Hofmann Company – the town board has been asked by the county to provide input. And that, said Howard, is exactly what the CSD has done: “The recommendation (from the closed session) was for staff to work with the county and the Hofmann Company to negotiate the terms of acquisition for the 1520 Discovery Bay Blvd. location and report back to the board at the next (CSD) meeting in July. It was a very good meeting.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Paddling for posterity

Oprah from page 3A Decker’s Get Real! talk show idea springs from the classes she teaches at Liberty – classes designed to help students navigate not only through the high school years, but prepare, plan and progress toward their futures. “The idea for the show is for teens and parents to come together and get information and learn and discuss all the important decisions that go into building a life for these kids, and that includes college, employment and taking a look at life as an adult,” said Decker. “And the other part is asking what kind of human being do they want to be, and learning how to build independence. “If the idea for the (Oprah) TV show is to reach more kids, then I have something that kids need.”

What Antioch needs for long-term survival by Manny Soliz Antioch To the current Antioch City Council: What do you plan to do if the economy gets worse? How will you deal with growing crime in the face of reduced budgets? Will you fast-track business expansion proposals, such as the Walmart expansion, which you need to approve, or will you UEST buckle to special OMMENT interests that don’t represent the community as a whole? What plans do you have to bring new employers to Antioch and improve our local economy? Do you know what you need to do to deal with depressed real estate values? These are the tough decisions City Council members need to address. We expect the council to make the right decisions. The real question is: Can the current council make the right decisions in the face of adversity? It is disappointing the lack of skill and insight our local leaders have demonstrated, given the nature of the current economy and

how it has affected Antioch. The June 22 council meeting featured the annual budget and how our leaders plan on dealing with Antioch on the brink of bankruptcy. I expect leaders to be informed and realistic in dealing with issues. While it’s nice having Antioch leaders attend philanthropic events, picnics and organizing parades, we need them focused on the problems facing Antioch. I was amazed at the lack of thought given to two issues. The first issue involved increasing local water and sewer rates. No one would ever support substandard systems. In fact, Antioch water treatment has always been well funded and a priority. While Antioch citizens face the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, our leaders approved a five-year plan resulting in a 24-percent increase in water rates in just the first two years alone. Are our city leaders in touch with reality? Councilmember Reggie Moore, indicating that he had experience as a water utility employee, did not oppose the rate increase, just the length of the plan outlined by staff. Unfortunately, his experience as a water meter reader didn’t prepare him very well in recognizing this was a tax increase, affecting

LETTERS Bad time for water rates to gush Editor: For the second time this year and third time in less than two years, the Antioch City Council raised our taxes on sewer, water and garbage service. In September, 2008, they raised our sewer and water rates by over 8 percent over two years. Then this year, they raised our garbage rates 26 percent. But, if you don’t want that increase, you’re forced into a smaller can. Then on June 22, on a 3-1 vote with Brian Kalinowski absent and Reggie Moore voting no (more on that later) the council voted to raise our water rates 52 percent and sewer rates 22 percent over the next five years. That’s a total of 65 percent between 2008-14

all city water users, on an across-the-board percentage basis. If there was an understanding of the relation between an increase in rates and the struggles of those paying the water bills, it certainly wasn’t evident. The second issue was the approval of the 2010-11 budget. The primary role of our local government is to ensure our safety. Antioch has had some spectacular increases in violent crime in recent years. Citizens are very concerned about Antioch’s ability to provide such basic services as police protection, crime abatement and fixing potholes. With this in mind, Moore once again showed a lack of understanding of the issues. A very concerned and spirited contingent was present to support Animal Services. In the face of a large number of city employees affected by reduced hours and layoffs, Moore proposed pushing our city closer to bankruptcy by adding more debt to the budget, obviously trying to win the favor of this special-interest group. We desperately need leaders with the knowledge and understanding of the issues to make tough decisions. Antioch is unfortunately on the fast track to becoming the next Vallejo or Richmond, unacceptable outcomes from a community point of view.

TO THE

on water alone. So if your water bill is $100 a month now, it will be $152 in five years. Former Councilman Manny Soliz, another citizen and I got up and spoke against the latest rate increases. Councilman Moore wasn’t really opposed to it. He just wanted to raise our rates for two years, by 25 percent not for five years. But, whether it’s a 25 percent or 52 percent increase, with our residents hurting with high unemployment and reduced income, this is not the time to be raising all these taxes. Allen Payton Antioch

Retain the station Editor: No fire station should be closed. Closing the Bethel Island fire station will result in lives lost and extensive property damage. Mr. Stonebarger states that the fire commission has to show the residents of the district that they have done everything possible to cut costs and balance the budget. The B.I. fire district now generates $795,000 in revenue. The fire district spends $710,000 to keep B.I. Station 95 open. I suppose Stonebarger is going to prove his point by closing our station. Jack Whitener Bethel Island

In praise of a problem solver Editor: I am very saddened at the loss of Virgil Koehne as general manager for the Town of Discovery Bay. I am employed at the Discovery Bay

Tough economic times sometimes call for difficult decisions. If we are to persevere in this economy, all groups have been asked to make cuts. What will separate the current cast of leaders from those who can lead us out of this financial hole is the ability to look at the situation, find long-term solutions that will prevent further financial collapse and make the tough decisions we all expect of you. As a lifelong resident of Antioch, I’ve come to terms that the small community where I was raised is no longer the same town. Having had the honor and privilege of serving the City as a councilmember in the mid 1990s, I remain interested and involved in local events. Given the dire nature of Antioch’s situation, I would recommend that council immediately convene a blue ribbon panel of residents with backgrounds in financial services, municipal financing, real estate and economic development that can make quick and difficult recommendations to our current leaders. Having qualified people serving Antioch at all levels will be crucial to our long-term economic survival. Manny Soliz is a former Antioch city councilman.

Golf Course and am the emergency contact for any problems that arise 24-7. Many times while answering a trouble call during the night I have seen Virgil out in the dark working on a broken sprinkler, addressing a flood or attending whatever problem needed his attention. I have worked with Virgil for over 12 years on issues concerning the golf course and country club. Never before have I worked with a man so dedicated to his job. He was always there to help me with anything I asked of him and was available 24 hours a day. I admire his people skills and his ability to solve problems. No matter what the problem, be it broken pipes, irrigation, sewage, meters, flooding, etc., he always came up with a solution. Even the night the streets flooded, he was out directing traffic. And every year he helps the Boy Scouts collect Christmas trees. Sometimes in life we don’t appreciate what we have until we’ve lost it. I think that will be the case with the dismissal of Virgil Koehne. I want him to know that I know how much he did and appreciate all he did for me and the Town of Discovery Bay. I will truly miss him. Terry Kelsey Discovery Bay

Eyesore on the Ridge Editor: My wife and I live in the Deer Ridge development on San Juan Oaks Road in Brentwood. In front of our home, directly across the street, is a PGE tower approximately 117 feet high. T-Mobil wants to add nine antennas to the top and build a 300-squarefoot enclosure to store its equipment.

This is a residential neighborhood. We are not even allowed to leave our garbage cans on the street, according to our CCRs. Rabbits, squirrels, etc. run through this empty field. Another concern is the hawks and owls that nest in the tower. From an aesthetic stand point, the compound and the antennas would be an eyesore as they would be 300 to 500 feet from our front door. Our CCRs say to provide an attractive environment for the enjoyment of the owner in general and the enhancement of property values. Fifteen people from our neighborhood attended a meeting on this issue before the Brentwood Planning Commission. Three of the five members said our aesthetic issue didn’t matter; the progress of Brentwood was all that was important. Once again we don’t have a say. Since we raised this subject it has been put on hold until July 20 at 7 p.m. Where will this stop, how many antennas will be put up, and how many compounds built and how safe are these antennas? If you live in the Deer Ridge development and are concerned about this, please contact me at 925-516-7725. Joe Champlin Brentwood

Flora to flaunt forever Now that I’m too old to worry about what people think, I’m considering getting a tattoo. I’ve wrestled with the idea for years. I guess the fact that it requires a lifelong commitment scares the heck out of me. That’s funny. I wasn’t scared about my other lifelong commitment – marriage – and HANGIN’ IN after 18 years of that HERE I’m realizing I should have been more afraid. Anyway, it’s a daunting prospect. To think a tattoo would still be with me even as they lower me into the grave is creepy. VICKI My own daughMCKENNA ter wears two tattoos, one on her hip and one on her foot. I’ve been told that tattoos are addicting: once you get one you want another and another. That’s kind of creepy, too. I have seen some really unattractive tattoos over time. At Great America I saw a man whose entire stomach (which was huge) was illustrated with the scariest looking devil face I’ve ever seen! He walked around with his shirt off, terrifying most of the children in the park. “Hey, buddy, I’m not riding Top Gun with you! That stomach attracts bad karma. I’m sure of it!” He had kids, too. Weren’t they embarrassed? (I can’t even wear shorts that say “PINK” on the butt without totally humiliating my kids.) The guy’s kids seemed oblivious to their devil-dad exposing his bloated and tattooed gut, strolling through the park shoving blue cotton candy into his mouth. His tattoo was way too big and gross, but I’ve also seen tattoos on women that are too small. Maybe they were afraid like me and didn’t want to commit to a large anklet of roses and butterflies, but at first glance that little flower looks like a small green mole. Not attractive.

T

I’ve given a lot of thought to what design I’d get. I suppose you should choose something personal, like the names of your children, or your astrology sign, perhaps a Chinese symbol for prosperity or tranquility. It’s a tough decision. Then there is the location. I would want to have a tattoo located where I could hide it if I wanted to. Perhaps the lower back, often referred to as a “tramp stamp.” OK, that’s not good. I would surely humiliate my kids with that choice. My husband suggested I get his name tattooed somewhere. His name is Maury, and I’m sure people would assume it was Maury Povich. I would probably spend the rest of my life explaining that. Be careful about the reason for getting a tattoo. My daughter acquired the one on her foot because her boyfriend decided to move to the East Coast and work on a barge in the Atlantic for a year. It promised big money, but the idea of being separated from him broke her heart. She decided to prove her love by tattooing “Love Is Patient” on her foot. A noble gesture, but shortly afterward he changed his mind. The tattoo didn’t. It’s not a bad message, and it is done in very pretty script, but this proves my point. Be careful about your reason for getting one. I took a tattoo “test drive” recently. It’s a rub-on sticker you can download on your computer and print. I chose a pretty plumeria flower, very Hawaiian looking. I will probably never make it to Hawaii, not in this life anyway, so I thought a Hawaiian tattoo would be the next best thing. I love the beach, the sun and tropical drinks, so I printed it out and stuck it on my foot. Hey! I like it! I think I could look at this every day without regret. So, the next step – finding the right tattoo parlor. Will I go through with it? Time will tell, but I think I can do this. And hey, if I don’t like it, I’ll just always wear shoes.

between the Federal Police and the Mexican Army, which he described as “excellent.” He added that there have been some problems with the municipal police in Juarez. “Federal police have the most force in Juarez right now,” he said. “There have been some small difficulties between the federal and local police.” He added that the two police departments are doing their best to exchange intelligence and information vital to the security of Ciudad Juarez. I asked Rodriguez about the reports that Mexico will be reshuffling its police, merging state and municipal departments to form one force for each state – something I had first heard about during a visit

to Tijuana in March. “This is true,” he said. “It will take a long time … at least five or six years. The changes will bring more efficiency but it will be difficult.” Just then, Rodriguez was needed back in the office. He thanked me for taking the time to explain to Americans the work he and his fellow officers were conducting in Ciudad Juarez, then told me I could return to the station in the morning for a ride-along with a Federal Police patrol. I shook his hand, walked back to the checkpoint and found a cab waiting at a taxi stand. I got in, wary of the potential gaze from an unseen adversary that could be watching the station as I was driven back to my hotel. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

It’s a Matter of Law By Amy Alvis & Barbara A. Frantz

HAVE YOU UNINTENTIONALLY DISINHERITED YOUR CHILDREN? I know a gentleman, “Sam”, who remarried after losing his wife of 32 years. His new wife, “Sally”, sold her home and moved in with Sam. Sam put Sally’s name on the deed to his home taking title as “joint tenants”. Sam also put Sally on his bank accounts. Sam has a will which leaves all of his property to his two sons. What Sam didn’t realize though, was that when he moved property into joint tenancy with Sally, his will would no longer control the distribution of his home or his bank accounts when he dies. Since those were Sam’s only major assets, he essentially would have nothing to leave his children by way of his will and when he dies, everything would be inherited by Sally as the surviving joint tenant of those assets. Property held in joint tenancy, brokerage or bank accounts held TOD or POD, retirement plans, and life insurance are not controlled by a will or even the probate court, but rather are controlled by joint tenancy and beneficiary designations. So in Sam’s case, by holding property in joint tenancy with Sally, all of those assets would go directly to Sally without probate and without control by his will, thereby completely disinheriting his children. But even more shocking, those assets could even end up going to Sally’s children when she passes, even if Sam and Sally pass at the same time.

How have you planned your estate? Does you plan match your intentions and objectives? With the number of blended families these days, the problem of how to provide for your spouse without disinheriting your children (especially those from a previous marriage) is huge. So how can we solve these problems? A living trust is one of the most common ways to provide for your surviving spouse while he or she is living, then upon your spouse’s death, the remaining assets will go to your children. A trust will give you added assurance - it can protect your children’s inheritances and keep the assets out of control of the probate court when your trust is properly funded and managed. Each family is unique, which is why it takes careful planning with an experienced attorney who can look at various factors and options for your specific needs. Amy Alvis is an attorney at Alvis Frantz and Associates who specialized in trusts, estates, and probate matters with a friendly and comforting approach.

Experience from page 1A had staffing constraints and have withdrawn. We are the last agency standing.” As a result of the funding shortfall to maintain and operate the facilities, the exhibits and programs might be modest at first and take a few years to reach potential, officials said. Mike Moran might be the only naturalist on site part of the time. As a result, park officials will likely rely on volunteer help from members of the Delta Science Center group. It’s led by Tom Lindemuth, a retired Freedom High science teacher who has been taking students on field trips to study Big Break for the past three years. “Things have changed in the Delta dramatically, and unfortunately for the worse,” he told the park board. He recently brought students out to study invertebrates in the Big Break shallows. “Unfortunately, we couldn’t find any. And we know why. What we have seen is acutely toxic conditions. Between 2 and 5 in the afternoon nothing can live in the shallow water.” He’s looking to increase his scientific observing when the center is completed next year. “It will be so much easier when there’s a facility to work in.” Another recreational improvement opening this fall is the extension of Big Break Trail. “It will extend the Great

Station from page 1A Taylor was absent. As a result of the closures, which are to take effect July 16, response times could rise significantly. In the area now covered by the Byron station (Station 57), it’s estimated that the current 7.5minute response could increase to 12 to 14 minutes. In Discovery Bay (Station 58) the times could go from an average of 6.5 minutes to between 9 and 11 minutes. Prior to the vote, Finetti said the closures would “seriously undermine support” for the new tax that will be needed to save the district, despite the closures. The three-person staffing at some stations could lead to complacency, he warned. “People (in Brentwood and Oakley) need to feel their fire department is truly at risk, just like the people in the outlying areas,” he said. “It’s imperative that all residents of the district feel the pain.” Finetti favored keeping all eight district stations open, staffed by two firefighters each, as opposed to the sixstation model that allows four stations – 52 and 54 in Brentwood, 93 in Oakley and 59 in Discovery Bay – to maintain threeperson crews. His motion to that effect failed on a vote of 2-6, Kenny providing the other yes. Earlier talks also put Bethel Island’s Station 95 on the list of possible closures. As they had at the previous ECCFPD meeting, Islanders turned out in force to lobby for their station. About two-thirds of the 200 people in attendance Tuesday raised their hands when a speaker asked how many were from Bethel Island. The steady procession of speakers included numerous residents of Discovery Bay, Byron and Knightsen, as well as a few from Brentwood and Oakley.

The Delta Science Center will provide Delta exhibits, science labs and a nice view of newly created wetlands.

California Delta Trail about 2½ miles to complete the gap from Big Break to Marsh Creek Trail,” said Anderson. Board President Doug Siden noted that “there’s a Bay Trail, there’s a Ridge Trail. We should have a Delta Trail, and it’s happening.” Visitors to the park, which is currently closed for construction, in the past year have observed tons of dirt being moved to create wetlands in the area between the

science center and the outdoor Experience facilities. Center visitors will have a nice view of the tidal marshes through large windows and from a patio in the back. The amphitheater will include a fire pit and provide a nice view of the Delta behind the stage area – a “backdrop worth a million dollars,” said Anderson. The Experience’s most interesting element might be the large topographic map

of the Delta. It will be to scale, featuring Mt. Diablo rising about two feet high and photo-tiles showing some East County cities. “You will be able to see the pattern of development,” said Anderson. “It’s for people to walk around on and enjoy.” For more information visit www. ebparks.org/parks/big_break and www. deltasciencecenter.com. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Many pointed out that the move would neither balance the budget nor stave off bankruptcy for more than a few months, while others said revenue enhancements should be sought before stations are closed. Speakers provided plenty of advice to the board. They suggested that California’s Environmental Quality Act should be consulted prior to closures, that reserve firefighters be used to keep stations open and that the closures be put off at least until after Labor Day to offer better coverage of the inevitable boating accidents near Discovery Bay and Bethel Island. Some speakers threatened action against the district were Station 95 to be closed. John Gonzales of Knightsen said Brentwood’s fees on new construction could legally be used for fire service, and that the city should “release those funds to the district.” In response, Brockman said the various factors had been examined several times in the six years since the district was formed out of three smaller districts. Station closures had been discussed on and off for years, he said, blaming the previous fire board – the County Board of Supervisors – for not making hard decisions earlier. The current ECCFPD board took over in February. “We are looking to do the best we can for the entire district and keep it solvent as long as we can,” he said. “We’re doing what we said should have been done years ago.” Becnel objected to the implication that Brentwood was withholding money. He said studies had shown that city taxpayers already pay 48 percent of the district’s costs, enough to pay for three stations staffed by three-person crews instead

of the two stations and five firefighters there now. The remainder helps subsidize operations in each of the district’s other communities. “I’m OK with that,” Becnel said. “But I very much object to someone saying that Brentwood is withholding money from the fire district.” Brentwood’s fees can, but are not required to, be used on fire service, as well as police, community facilities, open space, flood control and other uses. Historically, the city has used it to fund police operations. Last year’s $2.8 million total money also helped to build a new Senior Center ($17,000) and expanded library ($150,000). While all agreed that station closures are difficult to swallow, there are some upsides to the new staffing plan. Operating four stations staffed with three firefighters means improved firefighter safety, and fewer calls will require a twoengine response to get enough people on scene. Henderson said Wednesday that as

many as 25 to 30 percent of the district’s calls that currently require a two-engine response will now be able to handled by one. Henderson also said he was working with American Medical Response, which provides paramedics through its quick response vehicle (QRV) program, to possible rework the deployment of QRVs to offer more coverage to areas affected by station closures. Also on Tuesday, the board directed staff to return with data on possible revenue enhancements, including special taxes, property assessments and billing out-of-area residents who use the district’s services while in the area. A 2006 study by Citigate Associates, reviewing the district’s operation and laying out possible funding options, will be updated for the board’s August meeting, at which time a strategy and action plan will be developed.

Contra Costa football gets revenge by Nate Smith Correspondent Prior to Saturday night’s Alameda-Contra Costa All-Star Football Classic, Contra Costa coach Kevin Hartwig made it clear that there would be no repeat of last season’s game, when Contra Costa was shut out, losing 14-0. He stressed that Contra Costa would go out to have fun and let the athletes play – but most of all, put some points on the scoreboard. It took less than a minute to establish those goals. After Seth Magalei of Heritage fielded a short opening kickoff for the Contra Costa

All-Stars, the CC offense lined up in a shotgun I-formation with Las Lomas quarterback Lucas Gorton at tailback. Gorton took a toss from Campolindo quarterback Tommy Stephens, but proceeded to pull up and throw deep on the halfback pass play, finding Berean Christian’s Chris Morgan open deep for a 69-yard touchdown to start the game. “We came out ready to play,” said Hartwig, who is also the head coach of Freedom High’s football team. “We caught them on some big plays, and had some big stops in the first half.” A couple of those big defensive plays came on Alameda’s first offensive posses-

sion. After a false-start penalty to open the possession, Las Lomas’ Reed Snook threw a ball carrier for a loss, setting up a secondand-long situation. The Freedom coaching staff changed the coverage, and it paid off. Piedmont’s Cormac Craigie threw an intended hitch route into the right flat, only to find Pinole Valley’s Donovan Henderson cutting in front of the pass and returning it for an 11-yard touchdown, giving Contra Costa a stunning 14-0 lead less than three minutes into the game. It appeared that the local team was going to add to that lead on its next possession, as a screen pass to Henderson brought CC inside Alameda’s 40-yard line. An intended quick screen pass went awry, however, as San Leandro’s Lenny Jones made a leaping interception from his defensive end position. That turnover sparked Alameda’s first score of the night, as Albany’s Levy Wilson dove past the right pylon from eight yards out, finishing a drive spurred by big plays from the arm and legs of James Logan quarterback Jonathan Willis. The final five minutes of the first half provided the game’s deciding scores. As CC’s offense set up shop at midfield with less than two minutes remaining, Hartwig decided to pull another trick out of his bag. Stephens intentionally skipped a lateral across the turf to Morgan, who then walked in front of three Alameda defenders, acting as if it was an incomplete pass. As the defense began to walk away from him, he threw deep

to a wide-open Henderson, who walked past the secondary for a 51-yard touchdown and a 24-6 lead. Less than a minute later, CC was back on offense after a fumble on the ensuing kickoff and a nice scoop and return from Acalanes’ Tyler Malley. After a sack on second down, Stephens found Henderson on a post pattern for a 20-yard touchdown strike, Henderson’s third TD of the game. Contra Costa would need every bit of its 31-6 halftime advantage to secure a victory, as Alameda came roaring back with 20 unanswered points in the second half, falling just short in the end, 31-26. “They shut us down in the second half,” said Hartwig. “We had only four offensive plays in the third quarter, but we did a good job of extending a few drives and holding them off in the end.” Hartwig said the game was a fun experience for everyone – including him, considering the quality athletes he got to coach. Donovan Henderson was named the game’s offensive MVP, while Chris Morgan was named overall MVP, and was singled out by nearly all the coaches as someone they loved working with. Hartwig also praised the adaptability of Heritage’s Jesus Ochoa, who, after working for years in the Patriots’ under-center fly offense, made a seamless transition to Contra Costa’s shotgun spread offense without a single bad snap the entire week.

Tennis camp courts athletes Tennis Coach and Athletic Director Steve Amaro is rapidly turning into an institution at Freedom High School. Not only has he won several awards recently for mentoring scholar athletes; his annual summer tennis camp for kids of all ages has now reached double digits. “This is the 10th year of tennis camp, which is kind of surprising,” he said. “I didn’t realize that it had been 10 years until I went and looked the other day. But I have been coaching for at least 12 years.” The Monday-through-Thursday camp for kindergarten through eighth-grade students runs from 8:30 to 10 a.m. The high school kids get their turn from 10:15 to 11:45 a.m. “The advanced players on the Freedom and Heritage teams come and help us run the junior class, and they get community-service hours,” said Amaro. “They are week-long sessions and some of them will have been here for all four weeks, and some of them rotate week in and week out. It just depends.” The goal of the program, said Amaro, is “to have fun and to teach the sport of tennis. I tell the kids that this is a sport that you can play for the rest of your life. What I always tell them is that the first priority is to be safe, but then we want to have fun. And if we do that, then we set the stage for them to have a great sporting experience for life.” The junior sessions provide individual instruction. “We might do one set of drills, and then we’ll go ahead and do a game that will

Over the years, the camp has trained several stars for Freedom and other schools, including Freedom’s No. 1 player last season, Sarah Osborn, who was league MVP as a junior and will be playing tennis at Notre Dame de Namur in the fall. Many of the high school kids hoping to follow in Osborn’s footsteps help supervise the younger group and then play in the later sessions. “It’s always exciting to see them do well on their tennis teams, but that’s really sec-

What you remember is the relationships that you had with the other kids as well as the coach.

Speedway streak ends by Jack Menges Correspondent Last Saturday night’s six-division program at the Antioch Speedway saw Tommy Laliberte put his three-race winning streak on the line in the Wingless Sprints. Laliberte came up just short in his bid for four in a row as his chief rival, Dave Press, did him in. After winning his heat race and the trophy dash, Laliberte started from the fifth row in the main event. He worked his way through traffic in the feature but he couldn’t get by Press, who started just in front of him in row four. At the finish it was Press, Laliberte and pole sitter Sparky Howard. The Dwarf Cars came up with another big turnout, but at the end of the night it was defending champion and point leader Ricardo Rivera who prevailed once again.

had a lot of businesses that did sponsorships. General Plumbing Supply was our biggest; they donated $5,000 as our total sponsor, which was incredible. We had 96 total golfers that were there; we’d like to get a few more next year. A full field is 144, so we didn’t quite make it to that.

cutting out one-third of the kids, and who knows what they will do with their free time. The JV coach will say, ‘Why don’t you play for me?’ But half of them will be broken-hearted and turn around and go home and play video games.” So Kurtz decided to get involved. “I have been pleasantly surprised,” he said. “Since I put out that e-mail that showed all of the (participating) merchants … a lot of folks have called up and said, ‘We want to help. What can we do?’ That list of (participating business) locals will grow.” Restaurant fundraisers can be quite effective if the beneficiaries organize a good turnout. Kurtz’s club basketball team drew more than 100 people several months ago for a Tuesday night fundraiser at Shirasoni restaurant, which donated 20 percent of the proceeds, netting the team $1,000. “You can really make money for a program if you organize it right,” he said. Organizers are hoping to reach a third of the $48,000 goal with the proceeds from $5 per car parking at certain CornFest parking lots. Another idea under consideration is asking for a $20-25 per sport donation when students sign up for freshman sports at walk-through in July. “If everybody did that, we would be in great shape,” said Kurtz. “People pay $200-$300 for club sports. My son would probably play three sports. If we come up with a $60 check during walk-through, if everybody did that, it would be a good chunk of change.” Stephanie Tran, owner of Bagel Street Café, is donating 10 percent of all transactions through July 31 as long as patrons write their name and favorite local high school on the back of their receipt. “I love sports,” she said. “And I love kids being active in sports. My son just finished his Deer Valley freshman baseball season. So I don’t want another kid to miss that opportunity. I think it’s very important.” Uno Chicago Grill is donating 10 percent of all transactions on Tuesday nights in July, and there’s no need for customers to mention saving freshman sports. Trucks Training in Antioch, is donating 20 percent of the membership cost for anybody that signs up in July and mentions saving freshman sports. Kurtz is pleased with the fundraising efforts so far. “I do know that all of these coaches are really trying to figure out a way to make it happen,” he said. “I’m blown away by their upbeat attitude on how to bring it together. That’s a big help.” Other fundraisers include Hampton Inn, donating 10 percent of special room packages for those who mention freshman sports. Straw Hat Pizza is donating 20 percent of all proceeds on certain Tuesday evenings in July. Les Schwab is donating 10 percent of purchases (labor excluded) for those who mention freshman sports at the checkout. On July 14, Rubio’s will donate 20 percent of sales from 5 p.m. to closing for diners who bring in the flyer promoting the offer.

Babe Ruth from page 1B that I did bring up when they were 7-yearolds. But the way they played, the way they ran the bases, for them to go 21 and 0 – it’s tough to even go 4 and 0. We spent a lot of time together, whether it was on the field or off the field either at the pizza parlor, barbecues. And I think a lot of other teams don’t look into that chemistry thing. It will help you win the most games.” The A’s players set ambitious goals for themselves this year: • Winning the championship – check. • Going undefeated – check again. • Getting a shutout, or as third-baseman Angelo “Ray” Zuniga put it: a goose egg. “We got two of the three,” he said. “We didn’t get the goose egg.” Although the goose got to keep its egg, it was definitely an A’s-mazing season, which Zuniga also credits to team chemistry. “We made it as a family,” he said. “Everybody showed up for practice. There were no star players. Our weakest player was just as good as our greatest player. Everybody helped, everybody did it. We worked our asses off.” Matt Smith, a strong pitcher and leadoff batter, also brought a skill that can’t be taught but which can change an entire team. “He’s always smiling,” said Morales. “It’s infective – one kid smiles and they all smile. Even when we were down sometimes by five runs, we were still smiling out there. Most teams kind of lose control. (Our players) almost knew that they were going to stay in the game.” In between the smiling, however, it was

also a long struggle with pressure mounting with every win. “Oh, man, it’s the most stressful thing I’ve ever had to go through, besides my kids,” said Morales with a laugh. Referring to the players’ goal to go undefeated, he said, “to me that’s another level. They really didn’t realize what they were about to do until about the 17th, 18th game. Then they were like, ‘We can do this.’ That’s usually when teams kind of slide when they realize what they can do. That’s what I was afraid of. But these guys held it together very well. It was probably one of the best things I ever had to do, with the exception of having my kids and my family. It is fun for me. I love doing this. It was special.” The Antioch Babe Ruth League’s complex at 1550 Auto Center Drive is hosting district all-star tournaments starting July 3 at 10 a.m. The championship games are slated for July 9, and the winners compete in the state tournament and a shot at a national crown. “In 1988 we had a team that won the World Series in New York,” said Ed Daviess, the league’s executive vice president. “We are hoping to get a team to repeat like that.” It costs $180 in addition to passing a tryout to participate in the spring season, and $130 for the shorter fall season, which doesn’t hold tryouts.

What energy drink peddlers aren’t telling you by Elysia Cook Correspondent Contrary to what the commercials claim, drinking Red Bull won’t give you wings – but it might give you health problems. Despite evidence for the negative effects of energy drinks on the human body, sales have skyrocketed over the past decade. The beverages currently are more popular than ever among teenagers. The mixture of stimulating ingredients and sugary additives is an irresistible combination that provides a burst of energy for the consumer and rakes in profits for the manufacturers. According to some medical experts, the biggest concern surrounding energy drinks isn’t how much sugar or caffeine they contain. Although most energy drinks contain more than 30 grams of sugar per 8-ounce can, a Snickers candy bar and an 8-ounce cup of Mott’s apple juice contain nearly the same amount. In addition, the caffeine content in energy drinks varies and can be either higher or lower than most mainstream coffee drinks. According to a report on labnol.org, a 12-ounce cup of Starbucks coffee contains more than 250 mg of caffeine, while a 16-ounce can of Monster or Rockstar contains half that amount. On the other hand, a 16-ounce cup of Dunkin’ Donuts or McDonald’s coffee contains less than

*( 7,211),'(17

150 mg of caffeine while a 12-ounce can of JOLT Energy contains nearly 300 mg of caffeine, the amount at which most people experience caffeine intoxication. The main problem surrounding energy drinks is that they contain other strange, hard-to-pronounce ingredients that are primary contributors to a “crash and burn” effect on the body. The most common ingredients are taurine, guarana and ginseng. Because they stimulate the body rapidly, these “natural supplements” are the main culprits of the side effects that many drinkers experience. In a webmd.com article by Kathleen M. Zelman, sport dietetics specialist Cynthia Sass writes that most of those “high-techsounding ingredients” are not monitored and have no nutritional value. She also claims they are “potentially harmful.” Combine those ingredients with the kick of sugar and caffeine, and the end result isn’t exactly what the doctor ordered. Another lesser-known ingredient in some energy drinks is the stimulant ephedrine, which is also used in decongestants. Medical research shows that the combination of ephedrine and other energy-drink ingredients can cause heart problems. In 2001, two Burbank, Calif. high school athletes fainted after consuming energy drinks containing ephedrine. “It’s death in a can,” Heritage High School graduate T.J. Mixon said. He usually consumes two energy drinks per day,

but since over the years he’s become resistant to the energy-boosting effects, he doesn’t feel much of a buzz anymore. While some are dependent on energy drinks to stay awake, others chug them for other reasons. Kyle Vasconcellos, another Heritage graduate, said he enjoys energy drinks “just for the flavor. I don’t really even feel any sort of energy boost from the caffeine.” According to Heritage graduate Yasmin Khan, “They keep me awake through school. I have headaches if I don’t drink it (an energy drink) for a couple of days. I probably spend $50 a month on Rockstars.” Heritage graduate and energy drink consumer Chance Rowley said that he feels “thirsty” when he goes without an energy drink, but “usually I drink something else instead, some tea or whatever.” If you can’t bear to give up energy drinks, give your heart and budget a break by cutting down your energy drink intake. Doctors recommend going for healthier alternatives instead of grabbing a Monster or a Rockstar the next time you’re thirsty. Try drinking fruit juices containing naturally occurring sugars, coffee, tea and water. Experts say that these options might not deliver the same punch of an energy drink, but they won’t put you at risk of heart palpitations, either. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

A heart-healthy kitchen makeover Those interested in tackling neglected domestic tasks – excavating the attic or finetuning the family room – shouldn’t neglect the kitchen. Stocking it with tasty, healthy choices is the best makeover you could perform. First, take a peek inside your refrigerator and pantry. Look at the expiration or “best used by” dates on food packages. Foods kept past their expiration dates can degrade in quality, and items such as butter and oils can go bad. What to Stock Up On Diets rich in high-fiber whole grains, fruits and vegetables and low in saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol can lower your risk of cardiovascular disease. Whole Grains. Whole grains contain essential vitamins and dietary fiber. Wholegrain foods high in fiber include oat bran, oatmeal, whole-wheat bread, rice and barley. How do you know if you’re getting what you need? Check the label. “Whole grain” should be the first ingredient. Fruits and Vegetables. Low in calories and full of vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber, fruits and veggies are nutritious, filling foods. Whether they’re fresh, frozen, canned or dried, they’re a delicious must-have for your diet. Leaner Is Better. Making lean choices will help you maintain a heart-healthy diet. Consider skinless chicken and turkey, fish, shellfish and lean cuts of beef such as round, sirloin, chuck and loin. Beans and soy products such as tofu are good meat substitutes.

Healthier Fats. Fats play an important role in your diet, but it’s important to choose the right kinds. Choose oils high in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, such as canola oil or olive oil, and use soft margarines with no trans fats. Try to steer clear of saturated and trans fats, which are often found in mayonnaise, chips, cookies, packaged muffins, snack cakes and crackers. Salt. Most of the sodium (salt) in our diet comes from prepared food. Eating too much salt increases your risk of developing high blood pressure (a risk factor for both heart disease and stroke) and raises it in those who have it. When buying prepared and prepackaged foods, be sure and read the labels first. Watch for the words “soda” and “sodium” in the ingredient statement. Choose lower-sodium products. Aim for less than 2,300 mg of sodium per day – that’s about one teaspoon of table salt. To find heart-healthy foods in the grocery store, start by making your grocery list online. Visit www.heartcheckmark.org to build your list from approximately 800 products ranging from meat and dairy to vegetables and snacks, all certified by the American Heart Association to be low in saturated fat and cholesterol. Print your list or access it from your Web-enabled mobile phone or PDA. For more nutrition information, visit www.americanheart. org/nutrition. Simple Substitutions You can snack healthier by making some simple changes. Instead of regular potato or

consider pudding made with fat-free or lowfat milk. And instead of ice cream, make your dessert choice a sherbet, ice milk or frozen, fat-free or (1-percent) low-fat yogurt. – Courtesy of Family Features

Brentwood Idols deliver talent and heart by Samie Hartley Staff Writer This year’s Brentwood Idol competition was more than a demonstration of talent; it was an exhibition of character, as both the adult and youth division winners selflessly gave their prize money to others. Discovery Bay resident Tim Rios, winner of the adult division, pledged to give his winnings to his kids, while youth division winner Jordyn Foley, 10, of Brentwood donated her $100 prize to Kids Helping Kids, a local charity based in Brentwood. Foley, who won over the crowd and the judges with her pop star production of Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb,” didn’t hesitate delivering her prize money to Kids Helping Kids Executive Director Laura Page immediately following the competition on June 24. “I thought coming to Brentwood Idol tonight would be a fun family event, but when they read her bio and it said she’d donate her money to Kids Helping Kids if she won, I just couldn’t believe it,” Page said. “She’s such an extraordinary little girl with such a beautiful heart. I’m so surprised by this.” Foley, who has been an active member of Kids Helping Kids for two years, said she’d like to be involved with charitable organizations if she ever becomes famous but decided to give her prize money to Kids Helping Kids because it’s taught her a lot about leadership and the importance of helping others. Foley partnered with Kids Helping Kids

earlier this year to establish Project Take the Stage, a fundraising effort to provide scholarships to children who want to attend El Campanil’s Summer Drama Camp. She placed 15 piggy banks at local businesses and was able to raise $150, which helped two children enter the program. Foley, who has been singing since she was 2, is a regular performer in the El Cam-

panil Children’s Theatre program, and is even in the running for a part in a national tour of “Les Miserables.” “I love singing and performing,” Foley said. “Brentwood Idol was a lot of fun. I’m not used to singing pop songs. I do more Broadway style, where you belt out the song, but pop is more bouncy. That was really fun.” Last year, Foley performed “The Lonely Goatherd” from “The Sound of Music” at the inaugural Brentwood Idol, but after realizing the competition is more geared toward “bouncy” performances, Foley decided to go with the Miley song. She’ll keep her trophy in her bedroom because it makes her happy whenever she looks at it. Rios, on the other hand, is still trying to find a permanent location for his trophy. He

donated his prize money to his family and took them all out to a celebration dinner in downtown Brentwood following the show. Offering the crowd a rendition of Stevie Wonder’s “My Cherie Amore,” Rios was surprised by the win, especially since he signed up for the competition at the last minute. “My wife encouraged me to compete,” Rios said. “Both of my daughters had signed up to audition, so the day of the event (the June 10 audition), I asked if they were taking any last-minute sign-ups. They said yes and asked if I brought music, and since I didn’t, I told them I’d just sing it a capella, and it all worked out.” Rios said he participated in the competition to take on his wife Tricia’s challenge and to take the opportunity to publically serenade her. The crowd instantly fell in love with Rios as he dedicated his performance to his “hunny bunny” before delivering the smooth and soulful ballad. The crowd sang along during the chorus and responded with cheers and applause that the judges evidently took into account when scoring him. Rios said he was “really nervous” despite the confidence he portrayed on stage and his experience performing in church and with local bands for 30 years. Rios’ resumé of musical accomplishments notwithstanding, Brentwood Idol is the first vocal competition he’s entered, and now he’s considering participating in karaoke contests just for fun. “The competition was great,” Rios said. “There are a lot of talented people that live in this area, and the event brought a lot of people to downtown Brentwood, so it was a winwin for everyone. The (Brentwood) Chamber of Commerce helps put together great family events, and I was glad to be a part of that as a contestant.” As part of their winnings, Rios and Foley have been invited to perform at the Brentwood CornFest on Sunday, July 11.

Broadway lights shine in Brentwood by Samie Hartley Staff Writer If you’re not done mapping out the perfect summer staycation, make room in your schedule for Broadway. Of course traveling to New York nullifies the concept of taking a vacation in your own backyard, but this summer the bright lights of Broadway are coming to Brentwood through the inaugural season of Broadway Under the Stars. Through a partnership between the Brentwood Art Society and the Streets of Brentwood, Broadway Under the Stars will feature three family-friendly shows that offer a quality theater experience without requiring East County residents to travel over the hill. A production of “Guys and Dolls” will debut on July 16 and run through Aug. 1, followed by “Auction Gallery,” which runs from Aug. 13 through Aug. 30, and “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” which runs from Sept. 9 through Sept. 26. “Brentwood doesn’t have a venue for community theater,” said Brentwood Art Society President Jack Gaughan, “so we’re trying to plant the seed with Broadway Under the Stars. Instead of just one show, we’ve put together a season of three shows, so if the program is successful, we’d like to host a similar program next summer, and if the project continues to gain momentum, then we’ll push for a permanent facility in Brentwood.” The Brentwood Playhouse, a name

coined by Gaughan, will be built at the Streets of Brentwood next week. The stage will feature a saddlespan design, similar to the look of the Sydney Opera House in Australia, which allows the theater’s interior to extend over the conductor and the band, while the audience is seated under the stars for an intimate and entertaining experience. “This has been one of the most joyful experiences I’ve had in my 17 years as a professional director,” said Steve Kinsella, who will direct all three productions. “We have an amazing cast of egoless performers, and I see lifelong friendships forming already. We have a cast of 34 (for “Guys and Dolls”) that features eight award-winning performers, but we’ve also got actors who have never performed on stage before, so this is going to be a fantastic experience. Everyone is very excited about Broadway Under the Stars.” Streets of Brentwood General Manager Tracey Nobil agreed: “There has been a lot of support to bring community theater back to Brentwood, and we at the Streets are so excited to be a part of this new adventure. Broadway Under the Stars will be a great addition to the community and we hope it’s a tradition that will continue for summers to come.” Shows will begin at 8 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays during each show’s run. Tickets are $17 for general admission and $15 for students and seniors. Refreshments, provided by Code Brew Coffee and More, will be available for purchase. To reserve your tickets, call 925-516-8500, ext.

203. To become a Broadway Under the Stars sponsor, call Gaughan at 925-513-3863. “The American Association of Community Theatre says that a community that does not have its own theater program is a community that will not thrive,” said Kinsella. “Theater is the great equalizer. Where else can you see standing shoulder to shoulder a doctor or lawyer or financial planner, carpenter, plumber or architect, all working together for the common good? It’s my hope that Broadway Under The Stars will continue as an institution for many years.” For more information, visit www.brentwoodartsociety.net. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Patriotic palate This Fourth of July, get the kids involved in decorating the yard for a red, white and true-blue backyard party. For a one-of-a-kind mural, break out the sidewalk chalk and let the kids create their own patriotic sidewalk mural. Flags, fireworks, the Statue of Liberty – anything goes. Guests might like to try their hand at adding to the mural, too. Offer guests a patriotic welcome by placing red, white and blue pinwheels and flags into buckets and flowerpots filled with sand. Line the walkway to your door to set the mood. Set off a balloon fireworks display. Use a funnel to fill red, white and blue balloons about one-quarter full with sparkly confetti. Inflate the balloons, tie them off and let the kids provide a spectacle by popping away. Of course, no Fourth of July party would be complete without an inspired dessert such as a Red, White and Blueberry Torte. It’s a beautiful way to celebrate a special day.
