Tea Party takes to the streets by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer A pair of self-described “stay-at-home moms” drew about 250 people to City Park Saturday to hear speeches, sign proclamations and let it be known that they were sick and tired of the status quo in government. Jill Price and Allison Quaintance organized the Brentwood Tea Party, part of a national movement to regain control of a government that “has gone out of control like a dog off its leash at a birthday party,” according to the group’s Web site. The overall message: From collecting too much tax to ignoring the will of the people, the particulars that put America in its current condition can’t be allowed to continue. Speaker Steve Cichosz urged the crowd to stop being “consumers” and start thinking of themselves as “contributors.” It’s a minor semantic change, he said, that makes a big difference in attitude. “I don’t need to pay higher taxes as a good American to benefit my country,” he said to shouts of approval from the audience. “I need only turn my attention toward what I give to my society and the contributions of those around me to regain the camaraderie that was once ours as a nation working together in appreciation of one another’s qualities rather than their misgivings. “In being a contributor, I am a part of something larger and providing value rather than being a consumer and outside of that something feeding from it like a young swine

A Brentwood Youth Commission survey suggested that the city needs to expand its menu of activities for teens.

MOMS celebrate shade Crusade by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

The temperature brought the thermometer to a toasty 83 degrees in Brentwood, but the children playing at Orchard Park didn’t notice. They laughed as they rode the zip line, chatted as they pumped their legs on the swings and smiled as they careened across the monkey bars, unaware of the scorching afternoon heat. The unrestrained play was made possible by the three shade structures that protect the play equipment, allowing the children to climb and play without burning themselves. The shade structures were installed in 2007, but the hard work of raising funds for them was finally recognized last month, as the MOMS Club of Brentwood held a dedication ceremony to honor those who made their Crusade For Shade a reality. Project Chairperson Toni Hay said the MOMS Club got the “crazy idea” to raise funds for shade structures as part of a community service project in 2004 after the moms realized they were all unsatisfied with the amount of shade available at Brentwood parks. “The trees were too small to provide shade, and the equipment got too hot for the kids to play on,” Hay said. “If you wanted to go to the park in the summer, you had to go at 9 a.m., and when the kids woke up from their nap later in the afternoon, they wanted to go back to the park,

but that just wasn’t an option because they’d burn themselves. “Now, the weather doesn’t matter. It can be raining or a hundred degrees and the kids can still go out and play.” The MOMS Club rallied together, and through fundraisers, grants, and help from the city, they were able to raise $76,000. After the structure was installed, the club used the remaining funds to purchase a plaque, which was finally placed in the park last month. With the plaque officially in place, the club members gathered for

an official ribbon cutting, and their crazy idea was finally more than a distant goal. “What can you really say about a fine group of mothers who really believed in a dream?” Brentwood Park Commissioner Ernie Rodriguez said at the dedication ceremony. “They talked the talked and walked the walk and they got this done, and it’s made the park even better. Their effort has touched the community and we are all grateful for their hard work and dedication to this project.” Orchard Park is located at the corner of Griffith Lane and Cashew Street.

EHLER

Ehler takes Rotary helm The Brentwood Rotary Club observes a fiscal year that runs from July 1 through the end of June. Appropriate to the club’s tradition of Service Before Self, the club didn’t honor the new incoming slate of officers with any formal promotional observation, but instead held its annual Demotion Party – a merry celebration honoring those leaving office. Outgoing Rotary President Dirk Ziegler described the organization’s accomplishments during the past year, noting that Brentwood’s is the only Rotary in the district to sponsor active Interact leadership groups in three high schools, as well as a college Rotaract Club, a leadership group at Los Medanos College. Ziegler recognized club members who helped make the year a success, including incoming President Fred Ehler, who was named Rotarian of the Year.

Bethel Island Bridge replacement underway by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

Work got underway last week on a $14 million project to replace the rickety, timber-supported, 61-year-old Bethel Island Bridge with a wider, safer, stronger bridge designed to survive earthquakes and serve island residents and visitors for the next 50 years. One of those looking forward to the completion of the new bridge in November of 2010 is 14-year Bethel Island resident Mark Whitlock. “We have always been concerned with the age of the bridge,” he said. “Particularly in an earthquake, we very likely would lose the use of that bridge, which would completely isolate us from the rest of the world. That’s the only way on and off this island. If that bridge went down, we would be in very, very bad shape.” Whitlock believes the new bridge will be safer for motorists because it will be a lot longer but only five feet higher, thereby providing a more gradual slope and improving visibility of oncoming traffic as you drive over it. He also likes the fact that it will provide wider sidewalks on both sides of the bridge, making it much safer for pedestrians. As the current bridge is just about old enough to apply for Social Security, it’s actually overdue for a replacement, having been slated for removal in the early

Steve Castaldo, third from left, and others in charge of building a new bridge for Bethel Island, pose for a photo last week as work got underway. ’90s, according to Steve Castaldo, a resident engineer for TRS Consultants, who is overseeing the project. Potholes need filling and rotting timbers need replacement. The current bridge is 28 feet wide and 460 feet long, containing two 10-footwide lanes and a three-foot walkway. The new bridge will vary in width from 45 feet

to 57 feet and will be 863 feet long. Its elevation will begin on Bethel Island Road at Wells Road and contain two 12-foot lanes, two bicycle lanes, two 5-foot sidewalks with viewing areas and decorative lighting. Instead of being supported by telephone-like timber piles, the new bridge’s foundation will be 4-foot-diameter pipe

piles contained in a steel wall, above which rise 4-foot columns, a concrete cap and precast girders. Nearly $2 million was saved off of the cost estimate due to construction companies bidding more aggressively for projects in the slow economy. C.C. Myers, which has won awards for the quality and quickness of its work, was the low bidder at $10.3 million. “I have personally worked on three contracts with C.C. Myers,” said Castaldo. “There’s a level of good relations I have with them. So I’m at ease when they are the low bidder (on a project).” The first phase of work focuses on driving the 4-foot piles into the water and building a temporary trestle bridge, which is scheduled to be done by the end of October. The navigable opening under the bridge will be maintained, but boat traffic might be temporarily restricted for an hour or two at a time over the next two weeks while the heavier work is going on. Then the new bridge will be built next to the current bridge, which is scheduled to be completed in March of 2010. For several months, one lane of traffic will drive on the new bridge while the other remains on the old bridge. The old bridge will be dismantled and removed from June through November of 2010. Road traffic will be reduced to one lane sporadically for the next several months and perhaps also in the last few months of the project.

Youth Commission identifying, filling needs by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Brentwood teens are looking for more activities to participate in around town, according to a survey released by the Brentwood Youth Commission. During the group’s recent year-in-review presentation to the City Council, the commission announced that half the survey’s respondents said that there aren’t adequate activities in Brentwood for the 11 to 18 age group. Youth Commissioner Elysia Cook said she wasn’t taken aback by the results: “I wasn’t surprised that the majority of kids in Brentwood don’t think there’s a lot to do, because besides CornFest, there are not a lot of community-wide events for teens. After awhile, going to the movies or out to eat get old and cost a lot, and other fun activities are outside of Brentwood.” Of the 566 middle and high school students who took the survey in February, 55 percent said they’d like to see paintball in Brentwood. Other activities teens would like to see are movie nights, concerts, day trips and even more practical activities such as trips to visit colleges. A majority of the students polled said they would be interested in attending events sponsored by the city and are willing to travel an average of 15 minutes to get to an event. In response to the survey, the Youth Commission is planning a dance event for high school students on July 24. The event will serve as the last hurrah of summer for students as schools reopen on July 28. For a $5 entry fee – a bargain compared to the average high school dance ticket price – students who present a valid high school ID will be treated to a beach-themed event complete with refreshments

and a DJ spinning the latest hits. “A lot of kids commented in the survey that they would like to see a dance for teens to attend that wasn’t put on by the schools,” Cook said. “That way, Liberty and Heritage students can hang out together at an event without having to request dance bids.” The Endless Summer dance will take place Friday, July 24 from 8 to 11 p.m. at the Brentwood Community Center, 730 Third St. Tickets will be sold at the door. The event will also serve as a fundraising event for the commission’s scholarship program. This year, the Youth Commission awarded three $750 scholarships to graduating seniors who live in Brentwood. If the event does well, said Cook, the commission would like to hold more dances throughout the year, including an event specifically for middle school students. Beyond its role as an advisory body to the City Council, youth commission members regularly volunteer at local events such as Breakfast with Santa, Hometown Halloween, Tour de Starbucks, and Marsh Creek Cleanup. Youth Commission Chairperson Matthew Strauss said the commission’s next goal is to plan more youth-oriented events based on the results of the survey, and to find a way to improve communication between students and staff at local middle and high schools to increase academic success. The commission is made up of 10 youth, ages 11 to 20, three adult advisors and one staff liaison, Recreation Supervisor Barbie Gary. Commissioners serve two-year terms. The youth commission meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. in the city council chambers.

NEW LOAN MOD FRAUD WARNING The California Department of Real Estate (DRE) has issued another fraud warning about scams in the loan modification business. Last year at this time, the DRE was working on less than 10 complaints in regards to loan modification companies. But as of right now they are working on more than 750 cases, and they have issued more than 200 Desist and Refrain orders. There are many non-profit government groups that can assist with loan modifications. But from what I’ve heard, most of them are pretty swamped. So to take advantage of this situation, some unscrupulous for-profit loan modification companies are disguising themselves. They are using a seal on their letterhead that looks like a government entity, and they are using legislative bill numbers to give themselves the appearance of being a branch of the government chartered with doing loan modifications. Others tell you they have stimulus package money to dole out for loan modifications.

What was at the same time funny and sad was the following comment in a recent email newsletter I received from the DRE, “It is worth noting that not all firms who collect advance fees for loan modification services do so illegally.” Gee, what a ringing endorsement. It’s almost like they are saying, “Well, if you look REALLY hard, you can probably find a company that isn’t breaking the law in regards to loan modification.” Please note that I am sure there are some good, ethical loan modification companies out there. But just be warned that there are a lot of scams going on right now in regards to loan mods, so please be incredibly careful. For a list of the companies currently being investigated by the DRE, go to: http://www.dre.ca.gov/cons_drs.asp.

Members and volunteers of Brentwood’s Harvest Time Assembly of God Church are gearing up for the second Day of Compassion on July 18, and if turnout from the previous event in March is any indication, organizers can expect a full house. “From what we can tell, we are anticipating about twice the number of people we had last time,” said church member Larry Botelho, one of the organizers of the event. “People really, really respond to this, especially during these hard times.” Day of Compassion will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of the church and will provide free bags of groceries, medical and dental screenings – even haircuts – to anyone who shows up. This time, an optometrist will also be on hand to provide free eye tests. Harvest Time Pastor Dennis Reynolds and his congregation began gathering interest, along with food and pledges, last October while making their way throughout the community in their mobile food wagon. Quickly sensing that the need was greater than they could accommodate, the congregation decided to host an event on the ample church grounds. And for any Doubting Thomases who might scoff at the true effectiveness of such a large, community event, Botelho said they need only look to the last event for proof. “One guy came in last time and seemed kind of ill,” said Botelho. “He had his blood pressure taken and apparently it was so high that he was taken right to the hospital, where he was taken care of and put on medicine. Who knows what would have happened (to him) if he hadn’t come by? “The response has been fantastic; it’s going to be the same routine, but a little bit bigger, with some additional services and more volunteers. It’s going to be great.” Although it’s hard to guess exactly how many will show up for the event – Botelho estimates it could be as much as double the nearly 500 from last time – all are welcome and no one will be turned away. “We just want everyone to come,” said Reynolds in a previous Press interview. “It’s a first-come, first-served basis and we’ll be there for as long as it lasts. We believe that if you’re doing the right thing, you can accomplish just about anything.” The Harvest Time Assembly of God Church is located at 2200 Ventura Road, across from Krey Elementary School. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. The next Day of Compassion will be held Nov. 22. For additional information, call Harvest Time Assembly of God Church at 925-5161908.

Honoring teen’s Passion for Life by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Known for his quick smile and natural athleticism, Discovery Bay teen Tyler Toal was also known for his passion for life. So when the popular 15-year-old died following an accident last February, the Discovery Bay Elementary School community wanted to honor the enthusiasm and zeal of its alumnus. “When we heard Tyler had passed, we all wanted to do something in his memory, and we (PTA) thought: why not rename one of our scholarships in Tyler’s name?” said PTA President Bobbi Nugent. School administrators agreed, and this year the Tyler Toal Passion for Life scholarship made its inaugural debut, honoring two of the school’s former students – Catherine Kutsuris and Cody Robinson – with $250 cash awards. The scholarship is open to all graduating seniors at area high schools who attended Discovery Bay Elementary School. Winners are judged on written essays describing things in their lives they feel passionate about. Tyler’s mother Daniella Fonseca is proud of the dedication. “Tyler was really active; he did all kinds of sports and had a real passion for the things he did,” said Daniella, who has two other sons, 12 and 8. “He touched a lot of lives in the short time he was here and we feel very honored that they named it after him.”

Liberty High School graduates Catherine Kutsuris and Cody Robinson were this year’s first recipients of the Tyler Toal Passion for Life scholarship.

Nugent said that in a small community like Discovery Bay, a loss such as Tyler’s is felt by everyone – those who knew him personally and even those who did not. “I had never met Tyler, but my daughter was in school with him,” said Nugent. “And I remember when she was in fifth grade, we

took her friends to the roller rink for her birthday. I remember the girls sitting in the back seat and talking about a Tyler with the dreamy blue eyes. When we heard about it (Tyler’s death) I immediately thought about the cute boy with the dreamy blue eyes. It’s a nice memory; a nice way to remember him.”

Are You Suffering With Severe Constant Pain?

New Laser Light Breakthrough Treatment May Reduce Or Even Eliminate Pain Of The Worst Kind In Just Minutes

If you are suffering with severe pain despite all the treatments that may have failed you in the past, you may now have some hope of reducing or even eliminating your pain with a new non-surgical, painless laser treatment now available in the East Bay Deep Tissue Laser Treatment is an innovative, scientifically based, therapeutic modality. This new technology offers advanced pain relief and expedited healing times through a process known as photobiostimulation. Deep Tissue Laser Treatment delivers, deep, penetrating, photonic (light) energy to bring about profound physiological changes. ATP (Adenosine-triphosphate) production is increased, inflammation and pain reduced and circulation increased at the site of pain. These changes in cellular chemistry are triggered by the deep tissue laser making it a true healing modality. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy does not require the use of drugs or surgery, and there are no known side effects or risks that may occur with other forms of treatment. In addition, it can often achieve results faster than other treatment modalities. During the treatment the patient will feel a deep soothing warmth. This pleasant sensation reassures the patient that the laser is stimulating cellular activity. Lasers have made a remarkable contribution toward healthcare, allowing practitioners to treat a variety of conditions with the speed of light. As a non-invasive tool, the laser is particularly effective for the efficient treatment of soft tissue injuries, sprains and strains, and a variety of other ailments and pain. Low Level Laser enhances metabolic activity at the cellular level, without generating tissuedamaging heat. Some of the benefits of laser treatment include: • Fast reduction of pain • Improvement of nerve function • Reduction of muscle spasms • Speeding of tissue repair • Development of muscle tissue and collagen • Reduction of inflammation, swelling and scar tissue formation • Pain reduction immediately The Class IV laser, approved by the FDA in 2006, packs a punch while remaining non-invasive. The Class IV laser is capable of reaching depths of 6 to 9 inches, with a treatment beam of up to 3 inches. Because the Class IV laser reaches deep into the tissues, it is ideal for treating sprains and strains, arthritis, calcified muscles and fibrotic adhesions,

If you are tired of living with pain and would like to see if you qualify for deep tissue laser treatment call 925-516-5855 for a FREE CONSULTATION right now. Dr. Martin has seen such dramatic fast pain relief with Deep Tissue Laser Treatment, that he offers one FREE treatment to see if you respond and if you are a candidate for this revolutionary new non surgical pain relieving treatment. Due to the overwhelming response to this type of offer, this offer will be good for the fi rst 25 callers. If the lines are busy, keep trying.

Listen to what patients are saying: “I had been suffering from low back pain for many months before I tried laser treatments using Deep Tissue Laser. After just a couple treatments, my back pain was reduced to the point where I can fi nally live a more normal life again. These treatments are simply remarkable!” -Jennifer C. as well as intra-articular tissues inside of the joints. Its far-reaching capabilities also allow the Class IV to achieve results in less time than most cold lasers currently used today. With treatment times of as little as 5 to 15 minutes, the Class IV laser allows many conditions to vastly improve within a few visits. Oftentimes, patients find immediate, soothing relief that improves with each treatment A partial list of the kind of conditions that can be helped… • Bulging, Slipped Discs • Spinal Fusion • Neck Pain • Sciatica Pain • Migraine Headaches • Back Pain & Spinal Conditions • Tennis Elbow • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome • Neuropathy Pain • Bell’s Palsy • Plantar Fasciitis • Sports Injuries • Sprains & Strains • Knee Pain • Hamstring Tears • Arthritic Pain Advertisement

“I started treatments with Deep Tissue Laser after I had injured my neck in a car accident. The treatments allowed me to return to work much more quickly than anyone had expected, considering the pain I was in. During the treatments, all I felt was a warming sensation as the laser was moved across the injured area where all my pain was. After just three short treatments, my pain was almost totally gone. Thanks, Doctor!” -Jason B. “The Deep Tissue Laser treatments I received dramatically helped my recovery from a broken leg. Not only did it help reduce the swelling, the pain relief I experienced was nothing short of miraculous. My orthopedic doctor was amazed with the results.” -John M.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Brentwood CornFest this weekend!

HomePath 101 Don’t have 3.5% to put down on a home? Don’t want to pay mortgage insurance? Are you an investor who’s looking for a distressed property but can’t use the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) 203(k) loan because you’re an investor? Than Fannie Mae’s HomePath Mortgage Program, or Fannie Mae’s HomePath Renovation Mortgage Program, might just be the answer you’re looking for! Fannie Mae, a main investor of in this country’s mortgages, has unfortunately amassed a large number of homes taken back by the banks over the past year or so. When foreclosure is sadly inevitable and a home is foreclosed upon, Fannie Mae itself is left with another REO, or “real estate owned” property. The grim reality - Fannie Mae is collecting more and more of these homes every day. Their inventory is up which, in turn, has caused the government subsidized agency to create the HomePath Mortgage Program in hopes of turning around inventory, and, in turn, stimulating the economy. Since these homes are already owned by Fannie Mae, and Fannie Mae’s own asset managers – persons assigned to work with local real estate agents to price and list these homes – have already come up with a price, there is no appraisal needed for the new Fannie Mae loan. Another perk(s) of finding and purchasing a Fannie Mae owned home, only 3% down is required (unlike the 3.5% FHA has required since the start of 2009) and you don’t even have to be a first time buyer.

Regardless of how many homes you own (up to 10), if you plan on living in the house you’re purchasing through the HomePath program, the down payment of 3% can be a gift and there is no mortgage insurance required. Let’s recap: YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A FIRST TIME BUYER, THERE IS NO APPRAISAL REQUIRED, AND THIS IS NO PMI (PRIVATE MORTGAGE INSURANCE) OR MI (MORTGAGE INSURANCE) REQUREMENT. Wow, what a program! And for you investors out there, the HomePath Renovation Mortgage Program is quite possibly your best bet cash flow wise. Unlike any other type of conventional financing out there, a potential investor need only bring 10% of the purchase price to the table, in order to purchase a home. Overall the Fannie Mae’s HomePath Mortgage Program is an excellent tool one should arm them-selves with when shopping the housing market. Contact your local real estate agent to explore the homes Fannie Mae has available. Of course, before that, feel free to give me a call in order to guarantee you’re pre-approved to purchase using the HomePath product. You have to be an approved HomePath Lender in order to offer the product to your friends and clients. If you have any real estate lending related questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to write me at tfreymortgages@yahoo.com or call me directly at 925-726-1444. – Advertisement

From the wild blue yonder

n May 15, Scott Portue graduated from Colorado State University in Ft. Collins with a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering. Scott was also commissioned into the United States Air Force as a second lieutenant and will begin pilot training in November. His mother, Shavonna, takes it from there: “The commander of their ROTC unit was going to administer the oath to him, but as we were sitting there watching the cadets commission, they announced they were going out of order and asked Scott to take the stage. We heard this crackling static and they announced, ‘Administering the commissioning oath for Cadet Portue today will be his brother, First Lieutenant Kent Portue Jr., who is flying overhead right now (returning from Afghanistan in a C-17). Lieutenant Portue, you have the floor.’ They hooked Kent Jr. up by military satellite phone and he gave his brother the oath while he was overhead. We heard Kent’s voice say, ‘You ready to do this, kid?’ Can you believe that? The hoops they had to go through to make that happen. … There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.” Congratulations to Scott, above, being pinned with his rank insignia by dad Ken, and mom Shavonna.

Stumped by the stumping Editor: Instead of focusing on solving our state’s financial mess, two of our local state legislators and our lieutenant governor are spending their time running for Congress. Newly elected State Sen. Mark DeSaulnier and State Assemblywoman Joan Buchanan are out pressing the flesh instead of working to address the $24 billion state budget deficit. Now the situation has devolved into a state of emergency, with the feds about to take over our state parks. How embarrassing. They should do what the voters of their districts elected them to do, just last November – serve and help solve the problems in Sacramento. Let’s see them do that first, before trying to solve problems in Washington, D.C. The same goes for John Garamendi, who is president of the State Senate and can’t decide what office he’s running for – so he’s running for all three: governor, re-election and Congress. Where are their ideas for solving California’s deficit? It’s nothing compared to the federal deficit. June 30 was the deadline for having a balanced state budget. Instead, these three were e-mailing, Tweeting and Facebooking their friends and supporters to get in that last dollar before the end of the reporting period, to make their congressional campaigns look stronger. It’s obvious they have their priorities wrong. Keep them in their current jobs till they get it right. They should do what they were “hired” to do before asking we the people, their bosses, for a promotion. The campaigning can wait. Allen Payton Antioch

TO THE

borhood mothers decided the school our small children had been assigned to was not as good as the one that was a little closer to us. We got together and got statistics, reasons and lots of good arguments for why the boundaries should be changed and we made an appointment with the superintendent of the Fremont Unified School District. We all went prepared to take turns presenting our case. About five minutes into the conversation, the superintendent said “OK,” but we had so many good points to make, we continued on. A little while later, the superintendent said, “You ladies need to listen. I said OK about five minutes ago.” We had spent so much time preparing our case, what we hadn’t prepared for was to win it in the first few minutes. I felt that way at the Tea Party here in Brentwood on Saturday. Most of us know what the problem is and many of us know the history of the problem. What we don’t know is how to fix it. I wanted a plan. I wanted an organized letter-writing, phonecalling, faxing plan. Now, I appreciate the fact that these organizers took a great deal of their own time and many of them were not comfortable speaking in front of a crowd. But there is such a thing as an opening statement, casein-chief, and closing argument. We were all there for the same reason: we agree. Like the superintendent, we said “OK.” Now what is the plan and how do we organize it? I call my representatives on the phone every time there is a vote I want to weigh in on. Then I e-mail, fax and send them a hard-copy letter. Sometimes I call them in Washington and all of their local offices. When we were fighting amnesty, we had a large group who e-mailed back and forth and kept up the pressure until we were heard. If you feel you aren’t being heard, you aren’t yelling loud enough. Because we are retired, we had the time and we spent days at the fax machine and on the phone. You folks were, as they say, “preaching to the choir.” Come up with a plan and ask for help. One hour after the cap-and-trade vote had been taken, I was on the phone to Gerald McNerney’s Pleasanton office. I asked them how he voted. They told me he voted yes. I asked them what the percentage of phone calls pro and con had been and they told me, “It was all over the place.” If that’s true, you weren’t yelling loud enough. We voted these people in, and if there are enough of us, we can vote them out if they aren’t representing us. That’s the Plan. Find the people in your group who are the movers, not the people who aren’t busy; it’s usually the people who are. Get the record of how your local, state and federal representatives have voted and present it to the public. Go to Congress.org and sign up for Megavote. Organize your friends, neighbors and relatives on e-mail and call, write, e-mail and fax. You can shut down the switchboard in Washington, D.C.

Money better spent on Red Cross Editor: If you were a member of an organization where the board of directors publicly chastises you during meetings, is being audited by the IRS, changes governing and non-governing documents and increases fees and fines on a whim with no input … wouldn’t you want to resign? Well, you can’t …welcome to the Discovery Bay Property Owners’ Association (DBPOA). For the record, our taxes pay: Contra Costa County to maintain the streets, sidewalks, parks, police and fire protection; and the Reclamation District 800 to maintain our levies. So why do we pay the DBPOA annual dues? What is the DBPOA’s purpose? What does it really do? Volunteers keep it alive. Are these volunteers enamored by “Corporate Title” or possess some innate desire to dominate others? The DBPOA’s “volunteers” say they maintain our property values. First, the economy determines our property values; and second, when have you ever seen a DBPOA “volunteer” cut your grass, paint your house or help the elderly in the community? True “volunteers” would spend funds to maintain foreclosed properties, which does affect our property values, and help our elderly maintain their properties, not fine them (read DBPOA vs. Grace). We have seven board members telling us what they want our individual properties to look like, and if they don’t like it, we get fined, liens placed on our property, and sued or brought to small-claims court. In reality, these board members constantly (frequently) change through resignations, annual elections, and appointments; therefore, what was “in” and “approved” one year is “out” and “disapproved” the next year. Hence, there is no consistency; only changing standards that supply an endless pool of fine money for the DBPOA. Just this year, the president, the vice president and the treasurer resigned, and the newly appointed treasurer just resigned after two months. We currently have two open board positions just waiting for the next “volunteers.” Perhaps the DBPOA’s corporate logo should be a revolving door, with broken dollar-sign handles. An analysis of the DBPOA’s financial records show its cash balances decreasing approximately $29,000 each year. How long can they last? Personally, I recommend that the DBPOA dissolve “now” and give the

remaining funds to the Red Cross (as per its Articles of Incorporation) rather than continue squandering what is left of our dues, and what they have collected in fees, fines and lawsuits against us. (Over $266,000 was spent in the past 3½ years – secretarial, inspection, and legal fees – on enforcing outdated CC&Rs.) They’re only now, in 2009, trying to reduce expenses … For the history of the DBPOA (and DBPOA vs. Grace mentioned above), read the public records on the Discovery Bay Property Owner’s Association Coalition’s Web site, www.dbpoac.com. If you agree the DBPOA should dissolve, send the coalition an e-mail. It only takes a vote of the DBPOA members. Let’s close this operation down “now” and put the money to better use with the Red Cross. Frank J. Visintin Discovery Bay

Hurray for the hydrants Editor: All five fire hydrants in downtown Bethel Island are charged and active. This is great news and a significant step in improving fire protection for our community. Now, if there is a fire downtown, a fire engine can pump water directly from the hydrant. Just as important, engines and tankers are able to fill and refill their tanks at the downtown hydrants instead of at Summer Lake. This in itself will improve response times to fires. We overcame several obstacles to make this possible – these included a pump that supposedly didn’t work (but did), getting power re-established to the pump, repairing and bypassing broken underground pipes, repairing vandalized hydrants and proving to the “nay-sayers” who said it couldn’t be done that it could be done. Thanks to the dedication of the many people committed to activating the hydrant system, we now have viable protection for our community. Special thanks to Acting Fire Chief Hugh Henderson and his crew for their perseverance, DeJesus Well Company for its enthusiasm for the project, and J. W. Backhoe & Construction for its responsiveness. We’re continuing our efforts for strategic placement of dry hydrants on the Island, and we’ll have an update for you in the next few weeks.

Solar ‘power to the people’ Editor: Here is one easy way to help the nation move toward energy independence. We recently invested in solar panels on our house in California. It was incredible to start seeing our electric meter run backward simply due to sunshine. The problem, though, is that current rules in California allow individuals to offset their personal usage only over a 12-month period. It’s like rollover minutes that expire every year. Basically it makes no sense to install a solar system bigger than my personal needs, as the utility company will not purchase the excess. We would have been very willing to install a larger system if the local utility was willing to allow us to supply as much as we could make. With the stroke of a pen, the government can require utilities to buy back all solar power that an individual could

THEPRESS.NET

make. This would not cause the government, taxpayers or public utilities to put up any money, as we as individuals would love to invest in more solar power for both the common good as well as a potential source of income to offset our other energy needs. Why do current rules limit the amount of solar power an individual can invest in? Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best. Bill Klipp Discovery Bay

Thanks for great athletic year Editor: On June 8, Freedom hosted the seventh annual Athletic Director’s Golf Tournament at Shadow Lakes Golf Tournament, our biggest fundraiser of the year.

I would also like to thank the Golf Tournament committee, which put in tireless hours to make our tournament a success.

COMMUNITY

Protest from page 1A He compared the recent government bailouts to socialism, saying, “Distributing $12.8 trillion of taxpayer money to corporations and banks is simply called theft.” Like the Boston Tea Party with which the movement identifies itself, Saturday’s crowd sported numerous Revolutionary War flags bearing the legend “Don’t Tread on Me.” Strident sentiments like “Take the Country Back!” and “We’ve Taken Enough!” were numerous, but the often-boisterous crowd was otherwise peaceful. One man, who declined to give his name, wished there had been a bit more action. “I already know all the stuff they’re saying,” he said. “I want to raise a ruckus. That’s the only way they (government officials) are ever going to listen.” An e-mail message from Brentwood’s Michelle McClellan agreed on the need for action. “Most of us know what the problem is and many of us know the history of the problem,” McClellan wrote. “What we don’t know is how to fix it. I wanted a plan. I wanted an organized letter-writing, phone-calling, faxing plan.” Price said she thought the event “went great for doing something like that for the first time.” Following the speakers, the protesters marched to Brentwood Boulevard, inspiring many to “lay on their horns” during the hour-long demonstration, Price said. She also acknowledged that “we could add some things” and that the feedback received would be the subject of follow-up meetings in the coming weeks. In the meantime, she added, the group will participate in a protest about the health care situation in Sacramento on July 17, and perhaps weigh in on the candidates running

Right, Revolutionary War flags like the Gadsden Banner were sprinkled throughout the crowd. for a seat in Congressional District 10. “This was Brentwood’s first protest ever, and I’m happy about that,” she said. “We’re going to continue to reach out to the community.” For information on the July 17 event, call Price at 925-550-2359.

them, while outside sat a World War II motorcycle looking ready for battle. The guests of honor at the event were a couple of Knightsen School graduates: Carl Garcia, Class of 1936, and Nash Gamino, Class of ’37. The two men were honored by the Knightsen Firefighters Association for their service in WWII. Garcia, who now lives in Stockton, served with the 220th Anti-aircraft Artillery in France and Germany. Gamino, still a resident of Knightsen, packed parachutes for the 13th Airborne Infantry. He was training to be a part of a drop on mainland Japan precluded by the atomic bombs that ended the war.

The two veterans received a plaque bearing the names of each of the 61 Knightsen residents who had served in the war. “It was wonderful,” Garcia said of the event. “I didn’t expect them to make such a big deal out of it.” The display of militaria (other than the motorcycle) will remain at the museum for the remainder of the 2009 season. The museum, located at 3890 Sellers Ave. in Brentwood, is open Saturdays and the third Sunday of each month from noon to 4 p.m. through October.

Hot-weather myths debunked As all new parents know, summer provides greater opportunities to enjoy the outdoors –plus health risks and challenges. “There are many myths and misconceptions regarding hot-weather activities, and

atric myths entitled “Babyfacts.” Although most people know that you don’t get warts from touching toads, many other health misconceptions persist regarding outdoor activities. For example, many people believe that you need to wait 30 minutes or longer before swimming after a meal when, in fact, there’s no need to wait at all. Another popular myth is that potato salad is the first thing to go bad at a picnic. According to Adesman, this might have been true years ago when it was prepared with home-made mayonnaise (which contains uncooked eggs). Today, this is much less of a concern if the salad is made with commercially prepared mayonnaise. Here are some other hot-weather myths that will help you survive the summer: • Poison ivy rash is contagious. • Fans are a good way to prevent heat stroke. • You can catch a cold immediately after leaving an air-conditioned room. • Urinate on a jellyfish sting to soothe the pain. • You should suck out the venom from a snake bite. • Sparklers are a safe alternative to fireworks. • Dark-skinned people do not need sunscreen. • Citronella candles are an effective mosquito repellent. • The higher the percentage of DEET, the more mosquitoes will be repelled.

• Wearing less clothing makes you feel cooler. • You need to put on sunscreen right before you go outdoors. • There is no harm in urinating in a public pool that is properly chlorinated Regarding this last myth … although there are no special dyes in pools that detect urine (a popular myth that may serve as a deterrent for some), urine can cause eye irritation and breathing difficulties when it mixes with chlorine. Adesman notes that in a very recent survey of 1,000 adults, 17 percent admitted urinating in a swimming pool, indicating that many people obviously consider this to be acceptable behavior. A word to the wise … These are just some of the 160 myths debunked in Adesman’s book.

Local karate takes on world A shot at

greatness

by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

Local karate practitioners from The Bamboo Village Martial Arts in Brentwood – Junior Black Belt Justin Ruehlig, Thirdlevel Brown Belt Jeffrey Inouye (who will be testing for Black Belt in November) and Fourth-degree Black Belt and Sensei Justin LaVasse, who is head instructor and owner of The Bamboo Village Martial Arts – recently competed against the world’s best at the 2009 Uechi Ryu World Cup in Clearwater, Fla. The invitational tournament, previously held in Argentina in 2005 and Canada in 2007, drew competitors in the Uechi-Ryu Karate style throughout the world. Ruehlig placed third in his division for Kobudo (weapons) with his bo (long staff). Inouye placed second in his division for kata (forms) and first in kumite (sparring). From Antioch’s Hillside Karate Kai, instructor and Third-degree Black Belt Chris Whittle placed first in kata for his division, and his wife Denise, a Brown Belt, placed third in kata for her division. The North American Kenyukai (Strong Fist Group of Uechi Ryu Syle karate) hosts Grandmaster Shinjo once every two years to teach here in North America in what is called a Koshukai (Japanese for “research group”), and this year that event was paired with the Uechi-Ryu World Cup. Grandmaster Shinjo works tirelessly to promote karate and gain its acceptance as an Olympic sport and is called upon to demonstrate karate when various heads of state visit Okinawa, including former President George W. Bush. His slogan is “World peace though karate training.” Efforts are being made to include karate as an exhibition game in the 2012 Olympic Games in London, and if everything goes well, an established Olympic event beginning in 2016. The Japanese government, in preparation for that event, has decided to include karate training as part of the physical education curriculum in all schools throughout Japan.

From left, Jeffrey Inouye, Justin LaVasse and Justin Ruehlig competed against the world’s best martial artists at the 2009 Uechi Ryu World Cup. Sensei Justin also works with the International Olympic Committee on behalf of the USA-NKF (Nation Karate Federation), the sport’s National governing body. “We have to realize that the 9-year-olds of today will be old enough to be in the Olympics in 2016,” said Sensei Justin. “If we want the USA to win gold in 2016, the time to get them ready is now. And by the way, look forward to more bronze, silver and gold from Justin Ruehlig and Jeffrey Inouye for Brentwood, California!” For more information on karate training and an introductory two-week free trial, call Bamboo Village Martial Arts at 925-634-5552 or e-mail info@thebamboovillage.com.

Rodgers hurdles to Chico

Photo by Spencer Allen

Freedom High’s Aimee Rodgers, seen here leading Bishop O’Dowd’s Laurena Toler during the 300-meter hurdles at the North Coast Section Meet of Champions, will be one of the stars at Chico State.

Oliver Hanf is excitable. And yes, that is an understatement. But the Chico State women’s head track and field coach couldn’t overstate his excitement about the three athletes who have signed national Letters of Intent to compete for the Wildcats next year – hurdler Aimee Rodgers of Freedom High School in Oakley, thrower Brooke Shepard of Arroyo Grande High School, and high jumper Maddie Allen of San Luis Obispo High School. “These three are the most accomplished high school recruits in their prospective events that I’ve brought on board in my 13 years of coaching here,” said Hanf. “In other words, I’ve never brought in a faster hurdler than Aimee, never had a shot putter/discus thrower who has thrown as far as Brooke while in high school, and Maddie has jumped as high as anyone I’ve ever signed out of high school.” Rodgers was the Bay Valley Athletic League and North Coast Section champion in both the 100-meter hurdles and 300-meter hurdles this year as a prep senior. She went on to place 12th at the California State meet in the 100-meter hurdles, crossing the line in 14.47, which would have been an NCAA Championship provisional qualifying time this year, as well as the fifth-fastest clocking in Chico State history. She placed 20th in the state in the 300-meter hurdles. Since joining the CCAA in 1998-99, Chico State athletics has won 79 NCAA Championship berths, 32 CCAA titles, 21 West Region titles and 13 National titles.

Zombies from page 1B hard at a charity roller derby event in December that she flew off of her skates and failed to negotiate the Superman flier maneuver in which she tried to land on her knee pads, wrist guards and elbow pads at the same time to cushion the fall. “I didn’t stick it as well as I should have,” she said as she showed off the scars from the surgery. Sew Evil, the Undead Bettys’ MVP of their first home bout on June 27, received a chest contusion at their first away bout. “They are bruised all over,” said Cemetery Mary as she watched the team warm up at a practice last week just days after the home bout. “Their husbands joke with me that their friends think they are battered women because they are bruised.” Of course, roller derby is only one of many sports in which players can take a few knocks and falls. And the 24 Bettys get much more out of the sport than black and blue marks. “It is the best workout I have ever had,” said Cemetery Mary, an Antioch resident who’s a mild-mannered auditor for a CPA firm by day and a punk/goth roller zombie by night. “I love the camaraderie. I grew up in North Pole, Alaska. I didn’t know anybody here. Now I have 24 friends. Derby girls bond for life. They are like my sisters. I also love watching my girls, especially the ones who couldn’t skate before. We just become strong, empowered women. Everything a modern woman should be: she should be beautiful and tough at the same time. Derby girls really grow into that. I love that about derby.”

Cemetery Mary, who declined to reveal her real name, preferring to stick with her roller derby moniker, is the Dr. Frankenstein who brought the Undead Bettys to life. Three years ago she tried out for the Bay Area Derby Girls, but didn’t make the team and then skated for a while with the Port City Roller Girls in Stockton before giving up because she couldn’t get to the 6 p.m. practices from her job in San Francisco. “I sat around for a year saying, ‘I want to play derby so bad it’s in my blood,’” she said. So, last summer she decided to start her own team, placing a posting on Craigslist and passing out fliers at the Mutiny Bar in Antioch. Amazingly, 60 women showed up for the introductory meeting, but then only one of them showed up at the team’s first practice two weeks later. Mary decided to keep trying for the rest of the year and eventually got 10 players together who skated on the basketball courts at Dallas Ranch Middle School last fall and winter. As the weather got colder and the rains started to pour, she called up Jeff Warrenburg, owner of Paradise Skate rink and got a great deal on rink time because he wanted to support the team. In March, 14 more women showed up for the Monday and Wednesday night practices and suddenly they had a team. The Bettys are mostly from East County, ranging in experience from those who had never put on skates before to former semi-pro ice skaters and roller derby players. “It’s been a long road,” said Mary. “In December I wasn’t sure we were going to make it.” The Bettys, who are considered a B

event manager, for their home match. Razor didn’t know much about roller derby before she saw one of Mary’s fliers a half-year ago and decided to check out a practice. She liked what she saw and now she’s hooked. “It was really great,” she said. “I am an active person anyway. It was right up my alley, where it was exercise but not a regimen like going to a gym. We could make it fun while we worked out. I have had fun every week. We are all very close. They are almost like a second family. When one falls, we all stop and make sure she’s OK, whether they fell (on their own) or we hit them with a rough check. I am happy that I found it and feel that I will be involved for quite some time. “We are such a wide area of a huge spectrum of different kinds of people. It’s really kind of nice to see people from different backgrounds who can work together as a whole and become as close as we have, become a close-knit family in such a short amount of time. I would do anything for these girls. I would encourage as many people as possible to check it out. Even the guys, because we have referees. We go to dinner together, skate together, go to movies. It’s kind of a cool group to be a part of.” Mary would like to get 16 more players on board so that they could have two full teams, which would allow them to afford more rink time and be able throw more home bouts and scrimmages. The next home bout is scheduled for Sept. 19 at Paradise Skate, which is next to the county fairgrounds off 10th Street in Antioch. For more information, go online to www.undeadbettys.com.

team, have played two bouts so far, losing both to more experienced teams: an away match in Santa Cruz on May 16 and a home match against the Central Valley Roller Girls on June 27. But the Bettys learned a lot from the experience and are pleased that more than 300 people showed up for their home bout, although they only broke even on expenses. “Every time we skate an A team we learn something we need to work on by our September bout,” said Mary. “My girls skated their heart out, so I am proud. They took it as a win. Three girls on the track had never bouted before; three more, it was their second bout only. Considering we had very limited bout experience, we did really, really well – much better than a lot of leagues expected us to. A lot of teams lose for the first year or two until the girls learn to skate.” Although the name Undead Bettys seems like the natural choice for a team pieced together by someone named Cemetery Mary, it actually wasn’t their first choice. They were originally called the Brawlin’ Bettys, but a team in Santa Barbara stole that name from them; and rather than engage in costly litigation, they decided to change their name. “They want me to put a story on the Web site that we were stabbed in the back by the Brawling Bettys, and rose from the dead and came back and stormed the derby world,” said Mary. At a practice last week, Mary gave flowers and a hug to Candi Razor, aka Candice Sanabria-Harrigan, an Antioch resident and customer service rep for a property management firm, for acting as the “bout pimp,” or

I said (to the players), ‘You’re very good, but I hope you can understand: if you don’t have very good grades, you won’t make the next level, which is high school or college.’ At least three players approached me and said it was a very good experience and they want to do better for high school because they love to play the sport. I said,

‘Definitely education has to be number one.’� USA Force, a coed team of 14 players mostly under the age of 12, begins its season in a couple of months. For now they’re focused on helping make the Japanese team’s visit as enjoyable as possible. “It’s not easy; it’s been a lot of work from day one,� said Huerta. “I really appreciate the support, especially from the parents involved in this program. They’re very excited like me. I wish more people will consider this as an option to support this in future years. I think it can be an incredible experience for you personally and for others.

Birthday duo

Star-spangled anniversary

Oakley resident and Freedom High School student Jasmine Vasquez recently celebrated her 15th Birthday/Quinceanera on March 14. Her brother Raymond, who attends La Paloma, performed a magic show for her and their 200 guests. Raymond also celebrated his 18th birthday on Dec. 15, 2008. Happy birthday to the both of you! We are so very proud of you both. Love, Mom, Dad and Danny

Keeping the peace Oakley residents Patty and Dennis Loosli are proud to announce that their son Patrick Loosli graduated from the 163rd Basic Training Class, Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff and Law Enforcement Training Center in Pittsburg on May 29. The six-month academy accumulates 1,020 hours of training in the Peace Officer Standards and Training. Patrick is also a 2005 graduate of Freedom High and a 2007 graduate of Heald College. He is looking forward to a long career in peace enforcement. Congratulations, Patrick! We are very proud of you.

Brentwood residents Brad Sikes and Rochelle Cloutier were married on July 4, 2008, surrounded by family and friends at a small but beautiful wedding in Lake Tahoe. They were introduced by mutual friends and dated a while before marrying on the Fourth of July. Brad works as a foreman in construction and Rochelle recently graduated as a certified medical assistant. They have one daughter, Hailey, who turns 10 on July 6. They are also expecting their first child together this November. The couple recently purchased a nice big house in Brentwood. This will be the first of many anniversaries and they chose the Fourth of July, because wherever they are on that day, there will always be fireworks.

OBITUARIES Megan McDonough Brentwood resident and Edna Hill Middle School student Megan McDonough passed away on June 23 at Oakland’s Kaiser Permanente Medical Center. She was only 12 years old. Megan succumbed to injuries she suffered when she began to drown while playing in the ocean during a vacation to Pismo Beach on June 19. Three lifeguards, a surfer and a couple of off-duty sheriff’s deputies helped rescue her from the waters and administered CPR. She was taken to Grover City Community Hospital via ambulance before being flown to the Oakland Kaiser Pediatric Intensive Car Unit, where she died.

Obituaries from page 8B She is survived by her parents, Patrick and Michelle McDonough; younger brother, Caleb; grandparents, Mike and Jean Ruffner; uncle and aunt, Brian and Darris Ruffner; aunts, Mary Borchard and Lisa McDonough; and cousins, Haley, Zachery, Ashlynn, Patrick, Kenny and Rebekah. Born on Nov. 19, 1996, Megan was a spirited girl with a passion for singing and dancing. She loved to watch videos on YouTube that had the lyrics to her favorite songs so that she could sing along. She loved listening to Avril Lavigne, and often challenged her brother to a battle on Rock Band. She and Caleb were great friends and never minded hanging out with each other. Megan was a typical tween. She loved to hang out with her friends and avoided homework whenever possible. She wasn’t a girly-girl, opting for jeans and sweatshirts over anything frilly. She was even considering dying her hair black. Megan was up for anything if it meant having fun. She got along with everyone and would even go to parties with younger kids in attendance because it was an opportunity to have a good time. She also enjoyed sports, playing softball, basketball, football and even pingpong and bowling, but soccer was her favorite. She played on the East Diablo Youth Soccer League for five years. When she wasn’t playing sports, Megan was a great cheerleader. She loved to get up and yell, cheering for the 49ers, and the team was a fan of hers as well, as they won nine out of the 10 games that she at-

tended. Megan loved animals and finally got a dog after years of asking for a pup. Growing up, she had rabbits and hermit crabs, but she always wanted a dog, but dad was allergic. Last Christmas, Megan finally got a dog, an 11-month-old Chihuahua-mix, Avila, which she lovingly doted upon. Avila and the rest of Megan’s family and friends miss her dearly. The family would like to thank the community for all its love and continued support during this difficult time. A service was held for Megan at Edna Hill Middle School on June 30. A trust fund has been established in Megan’s honor at Bank of America, 241 Oak St. in Brentwood. Donations may be made to the Megan McDonough Trust, account number 0463771045. For more information, call Bank of America at 925634-9433. Roger Franklin Lapum R o g e r Franklin Lapum was born in San Jose at the old San Jose Hospital. He went to grade school at the elementary school, which is now Old Town in Los Gatos, and graduated from Los Gatos High School in 1945. Following that, he served in the U.S. Army in Panama. Roger earned his bachelor’s degree in

mechanical engineering from Heald Engineering College in San Francisco. Before retiring in 1988, he was an engineer in the Store Design Department of Safeway Stores. The love of his life was his family: his wife of 53 years, Ina Rae Lapum; sons, Greg Lapum (Penny) of Castro Valley, and Jeff Lapum (Kelly) of Brentwood; and daughter, Jodi Dyson (Greg) of Rocklin. He is also survived by five grandchildren, Chad Lapum of Orleans, Neb.; Mandy Lapum of Castro Valley; Emma Lapum of Brentwood; and Drew and Kyle Dyson of Rocklin. In the past, Roger has been an active member of the Neighborhood Church of Castro Valley, Creekside Church of Alamo, and he most recently attended Golden Hills Community Church in Brentwood. He played in a Summerset bowling league and served as treasurer for SIRS Branch #108 in Brentwood. Roger had a great love for his Lord, and it was so appropriate that he went home to his Heavenly Father on Father’s Day. He also loved all of his neighbors and friends. He certainly will be missed. A celebratory memorial service was held at Golden Hills Community Church on June 26. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Golden Hills’ Women’s Network Memorial Fund. Arrangements were provided by Bay Area Cremation & Funeral Services of Brentwood. Babe Francis Griffin Babe Francis Griffin, born Francis Domingo Garcia, was born on Dec. 9, 1927 to

Protect yourself from the sun The summer sun heralds the onset of splashing in backyard pools, beach vacations and outdoor activities of all types. We like to think of it as a happy-go-lucky time when the whole family can enjoy reveling in the sunshine. Those happy rays, though, carry invisible dangers in the form of ultraviolet rays. Protection from dangerous UV light is so important that both the National Weather Service and Environmental Protection Agency provide a daily UV index. To help ensure that everyone enjoys summer safely, Dr. Anthony James Petty, medical program chair at Brown Mackie College in Miami, shares helpful information on protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful effects. “Overexposure to the sun causes premature aging,” says Petty. “Ultraviolet light affects the outer skin layers, or epidermis, and is the primary agent responsible for sunburn. Long-term effects of the sun also include a higher risk of developing skin cancer.” The 2009 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SunWise Program report, “Health Effects of Overexposure to the Sun,” states, “The incidence of skin cancer in the United States has reached epidemic proportions. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, and one American dies every hour from this devastating disease.” Petty describes the process of burning and its effects on the skin. “Everyone has melanocytes, or pigment-producing cells, in the skin. As exposure to UV light begins to burn the skin, melanocytes send a color-produc-

ing pigment called melanin to the surface for protection. This causes the tan color, but each time it happens, it dries the skin and robs the melanocytes of their ability to respond.” Petty recommends using sunscreen with SPF 15 protection or greater. “SPF 15 filters 92 percent of UV rays. Without protection, a fair-skinned person would begin to burn in just 10 minutes. Applying SPF 15 sunscreen lets that same person stay in the sun 15 times longer before burning, or 150 minutes.” Petty says it’s important to reapply sunscreen every two hours; more often if you’re swimming. Chlorine from pools and salt from the ocean break down sunscreen formulas and weaken their effectiveness. Another consideration is the time of day you spend in the sun. UV rays are strongest between noon and 3 p.m. Apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before going out into the sun. “The skin needs time to absorb the lotion,” says Petty. “The lotion is absorbed, but the chemicals in the sunscreen are rejected and form the protective layer.” While it is recommended to reapply lotion periodically, it is equally recom-

mended not to overuse sunscreen. “Overuse of sunscreen can enable toxins to enter the bloodstream. This is dangerous and can lead to liver damage.” According to Petty, if you do get sunburned, “First make sure you cover up. Don’t burn on top of burn. It can be dangerous. Second-degree burns cause painful blisters on the skin. Popping the blisters raises the chances of infection. If blistering appears, see a doctor.” Advice for sunburn includes a cool shower, not hot, or an oatmeal bath. “A cool compress often helps,” says Petty. “Aloe is a natural emollient that is commonly used to keep skin moist.” Anyone suffering from sunburn should drink plenty of water. A headache that accompanies sunburn signals dehydration. “Nothing functions well without hydration. Drink water before you feel thirsty,” Petty says. “Colas and iced tea should be avoided, as caffeine will actually cause further dehydration. Sports drinks, however, will replenish electrolytes and hydrate faster.” – Courtesy of ARAcontent

Hot rods, hot weather The Streets of Brentwood lifestyle shopping center was transformed into memory lane last week as dozens of hot rods and classic cars lined the storefront parking lots. The RevTones got the crowd jumping and jiving while hundreds of visitors braved the heat and toured the parking lot to check out approximately 50 cars on display. The car show was a special addition to the festivities of the weekly summer concert series held at the Streets each Wednesday.
