CornFest: another booming success City earns

THIS WEEK

by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Adrianna Morris and her father, James, enjoy this year’s CornFest fireworks show from the stage in City Park. For many, the show was the highlight of the three-day festival.

Official numbers have yet to be tallied, but by all accounts, last weekend’s Brentwood CornFest was one of the most successful in the celebration’s 17-year history. “Attendance was definitely up this year, no question,” said Brentwood Chamber of Commerce CEO Harry York. “We don’t have all the ticket numbers in yet, but I do know that on Friday we had 4,000 people come through in the first 45 minutes. We had a nice even surge all weekend; I don’t think we could have asked for a better event.” It certainly helped that the weather cooperated, and there’s no denying the contributions of “staycationers,” who added to the gate receipts, as did the live music, petting zoo and record number of carnival rides and food and retail vendors. And of course, the fireworks. At a time when cities throughout the country are tightening their fiscal belts and scrapping those flashy – and expensive – fireworks displays (normally $20,000 for a 20-minute show), the Brentwood City Council

voted this year to stick with the traditional celebration, and the community was glad it did. “I worked at the gate (the night of the fireworks) and as people were leaving I thanked them for coming, and without exception, people turned around and thanked us (the city) for having the event,” said York. “Most city councils didn’t fund them this year, so I really thank them for putting it on.” Monte and Deena Carter drove over from San Mateo for their first fireworks. “Those were the most fantastic fireworks I’ve ever seen,” said Monte. “We kept getting ready to applaud because they were over, then boom, boom, boom, they’d start up again!” Vendors reported that sales were soft, although most covered their booth rental and a little more. Some felt it was due to the $10 general admission fee, others figured it was the economy in general, and still others felt there were too many vendors offering the same type of merchandise, such as hats or sun-

The Brentwood Police Department and Alameda County Sheriff’s Office have joined forces to solve the 2004 murder of a Brentwood man, and are hoping an increased reward will help bring to a close the nearly fiveyear-old case. Shadow Lakes resident Sanjay Samy, 36, was killed by a single gunshot to the head in front of his home in the early morning hours of Oct. 26, 2004. Samy was the manager of Rynck Tires and Auto Center in Castro Valley and had recently witnessed a theft at

the auto center. He was set to testify at a preliminary hearing on the incident just one day after his murder. “Samy was due in court the day before he was shot,” said Sgt. Scott Dudek of the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office Cold Case Investigation Unit. “Is there a tie? More than likely.” The Alameda Sheriff ’s Office was asked by that county’s District Attorney’s Office to look into the case because of the potential links between the two agencies, including a Bay Area resident who is considered see Murder page 22A

Seen at the Jacko sendoff There is absolutely no emotion to explain how my mom and I felt when we got that e-mail on Sunday afternoon. We had registered to get tickets to Michael Jackson’s memorial and out of 1.6 million people, we won! It was the best thing that’s ever happened to us. My mom has grown up with the Jackson 5 and has listened to him since he first started. She would always blast the Jacksons in the car and that is what made me get into his music. For me it was always more than just music that I loved about him. He had such a beautiful soul, beautiful heart, and to me he was absolutely perfect. He could make every ethnicity come together as one. Even though I didn’t know him personally, I felt every time he sang, he was singing to me; his music just touched lives everywhere. When we got to Los Angeles on Monday, we waited in a two-hour line to sign the Michael Jackson wall, which will be placed in his museum one day. There were people from all over the world – Sweden, Australia, Africa, Mexico, Japan, Germany – just to pay their respects to a man who did so much more than sing and dance. The next day was his memorial. It wasn’t a funeral; it was a celebration of his legacy and life. The whole service was absolutely breathtaking, phenomenal, amazing, and we felt privileged to be there. Even though he’s gone, his music and

Brentwood commission to host dance Summer is fading fast and school will be back in session before you know it, but don’t load up your backpacks just yet. The Brentwood Youth Commission will host a dance for high school students on Friday, July 24. The Endless Summer beachthemed event, complete with a DJ and light refreshments, will be held at the Brentwood Community Center from 8 to 11 p.m. The results the commission gathered from a survey conducted earlier this year indicate that local teens want a dance scheduled that’s open to all the local high schools. “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,” said Youth Commissioner Elysia Cook. “That way, Liberty and Heritage students can hang out together at an event without having to request dance bids.” Tickets are $5 and may be purchased at the door. Students must present a valid high school ID upon entering the community center. All proceeds will benefit the commission’s scholarship program, which awards multiple $750 scholarships to graduating seniors each year. The Brentwood Community Center is located at 730 Third St. For more information, call the Brentwood Parks and Recreation Department at 925-516-5444.

Employees help city tighten belt Brentwood employee bargaining groups are helping the city survive the recession, and it’s not going unappreciated. On July 28, the City Council will be considering the extension of the current agreements for the non-sworn employee groups. The executive team, managers, supervisors, miscellaneous and public works employee groups proposed to not take a cost-of-living increase this year, saving the city a total of $74,531 in general funds and $24,204 in all other funds. Additionally the Lieutenants’ Association offered to give up its increase for one year, saving a total of $16,677. The Brentwood Police Officer’s Association offered to forego a portion of their increase for six months, saving $19,492. All combined, the salary savings for this fiscal year totals $134,904. Last week, all employees were handdelivered a letter thanking them for concessions made to help keep the city’s budget balanced. Individually addressed and hand-signed by the mayor on behalf of all the council, the letters said, “We want you to know that we truly appreciate the hard work you do each day to make Brentwood a special place to live and work,” and thanked them for “your generous sacrifices during this difficult economy.”

Brentwood still a Playful City by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer For the second consecutive year, the nonprofit, pro-play organization KaBOOM! has recognized Brentwood as a Playful City USA. Now in its third year, KaBOOM!’s Playful City program this year selected 93 cities nationwide for demonstrating “creative commitments to the cause of play in the areas of quantity (the number of usable, open playspaces), quality (making playspaces engaging, exciting, interesting and fun) and access (the ability to get to a playspace – roads, trails – and a lack of barriers such as cost, safety, traffic and locked gates). Among the nine California cities to make the list, Brentwood and San Francisco were the only ones representing Northern California. According to a press release from KaBOOM! spokesman Mike Vietti, Brentwood was also selected for its “dedication to play … Recognizing that many families are taking ‘stay-cations,’ the city is working diligently to ensure that its parks are open, updated and safe for their residents to use. New play structures will be installed at Summerwood and Curtis parks to update and replace aging play structures to ensure safety of equipment and users, while Blue Goose Park recently re-opened

The re-opening of Blue Goose Park helped Brentwood win its second straight Playful City USA designation, one of only 93 such honors in the country.

after being closed for two years due to maintenance issues. McClarren Park playground will be redesigned to replace a damaged structure and two trails will reopen to eliminate barriers and make connections amongst existing parks, which will add an additional two miles to the trails.” Brentwood Parks and Recreation Director Craig Bronzon said it’s just the right time for this sort of upbeat news: “As so much of the news related to the economy and county seems to be negative, this recognition couldn’t have come at a better time. We’re proud to do our

part in helping our citizens play and keep their playful spirit alive and well.” It’s that attitude that helped Brentwood stand out among its Northern California peers. “Our country is facing two monumental deficits: a lack of unstructured play among children and a lack of resources to address this very issue,” said KaBOOM! CEO and Co-founder Darell Hammond. “Brentwood and San Francisco both took a stand and determined that the future of their community – their children – deserve a commitment to the cause of play.”

TALK ABOUT TOWN taff members holding down the fort at the City of Brentwood booth at last weekend’s CornFest apparently spent a lot of time trashtalking with residents. Seems a lot of people are concerned that their trash and recyclables are getting picked up and dumped into the back of the same truck, and folks want to know why. It’s simple: the trucks have a sliding door that moves from side to side, allowing all the carts to be dumped in the same chute at the top of the truck, but dropping it into separate bins inside, as seen in this photo. The driver just flips a switch – though you can’t notice it from the street. Fact is, a recent report to the City Council said Brentwood’s waste stream has been less and less contaminated lately, and now, instead of paying someone to haul recyclables off, we’re actually getting paid for them. We figure it’s a good thing that people are saying something, though: it shows that recycling is important to them. • • • he CornFest banners have already come down in Brentwood to make way for the Art Wine & Jazz Festival advertisements. Normally, Brentwoodites are forced to look at the smiling cob of corn weeks after the festival has ended, but now the sultry jazz singer has replaced Corny to make way for the highbrow festival, which has been moved up to August this year. While the festival normally takes place in October, the jazz singer will probably still be swaying in the wind when autumn rolls around. • • • oping that the best offense is a good defense, the Discovery Bay CSD Board has agreed to consider hir-

I GER stepped outside. High ERICKSON in the southwest burned the stars of Aquila the Eagle like campfires in a canyon cut by the river of our Milky Way galaxy.

I shot a glance at the Diablo Summit, three miles south, and caught the blur of a darting bat snatching insects. His work was almost done; mine was beginning.

Mt. Diablo’s Mitchell Canyon, left, is shrouded in shadow beneath Eagle Peak at dawn on Sunday, June 28, 2009. After shedding its skin, a gopher snake, right, boosts its body temperature in the morning sun. I shed the skin of my long-sleeved layer in anticipation of the sweaty switchbacks of Eagle’s steep east face. As I escaped the forest of coulter pine and gained some altitude, the subtlest gradations of deep blue were staining a porous sky low in the east. The threat of sunrise from below drove me up the slope into warm air falling from the peak like mist

from a waterfall. Only 5:15 and already things were heating up. The day before, I’d surfed into a Kinks tune on the radio: “Girl – I want – to be with you – all of THE time – all day – and all of the night” and as hard as I tried, couldn’t get it out of my head. Now, hauling my butt up Eagle Peak along its razor ridge, I swung with it:

Outside from page 6A preternatural isolation, a Stonehenge of one. It has felt the solstice Sun strike it for centuries of centuries as our planet carves its helix onto the marbled cosmos. The morning of June 28, 2009 was no different, except for the presence of human eyes to see it. “Beauty and grace are performed whether or not we will or sense them,” wrote Annie Dillard. “The least we can do is try to be there.” So I stood there, absorbing the miracle of dawn on the rock, midnight in the canyon below, and the silent glint of dragonflies trawling the peak’s rising warmth. On the return, in the cool air of Back Creek Canyon, I crossed paths with hikers headed toward the mountain’s hot heights and was tempted to warn them of the ordeal to come. The time was 8:15 and the mercury was pushing 90. But some lessons need to be learned first-hand. “Enjoy the climb,” I chimed in gravity-assisted affability. As the canyon tapered into the open gold of grassland, a shape on the trail’s shoulder caught my eye – at the last moment – and I slammed to a stop,

kicking dust in the creature’s face. It was a gopher snake and it wasn’t budging; I’d caught it in the drowse of its morning warming ritual. But something else was going on. Somewhere during the night, I guessed, the snake had finished shedding its skin, and its tender new scales were glistening – and hardening – in the swelling sizzle of sunrise. The snake wasn’t alone. I’d watched East County shed its skin that morning: shed spring for summer; night for the hissing heat of dawn. I’d caught a glimpse of Earth’s essence: transition. Like the organisms inhabiting it, the planet is always in the process of becoming something else. The shimmering zigzag lay motionless, watching me, tongue tasting me in the air. Earth was falling toward autumn now; scorching summer was in ascension. Nothing was standing still, not even the snake and I, hurtling as we were around our planet’s axis, around our star, around our galaxy. I shed my last damp layer, felt it slither against my glistening skin. Time for human to bid reptile farewell and let both creatures’ new scales harden in solitude.

UNDER-WATER REFINANCES So you are upside-down on your home, but you don’t want to do a short sale, and you’d really like to avoid a foreclosure. However, your payment is still pretty tough to make and/or your payment is about to adjust to an unaffordable level. You would love to refinance, so you call up your friendly mortgage professional, who gives you the bad news. Your credit is excellent, your job stability is great, and your debt ratio on your new payment is within their guidelines. But you are getting turned down for a refinance because of your LTV? What is that? LTV is an acronym for “loan-to-value.” That is the percent of your loan balance to the value of your house. If you owe $200,000 and your house is worth $400,000, you have a 50% LTV. Most lenders like a LTV of no more than 80-90%. Nowadays with FHA financing, you can go as high as 96.5% LTV. Well, none of those will help you out if you are under-water on your home. So the Obama administration came out with a plan a few months ago to help people refinance if they were as much as 105% LTV on their

homes. So people in Omaha, Nebraska were very happy about that. Around here, not so much. The government has realized that 105% LTV is a cause for celebration, not consternation, in areas of California, Arizona, Nevada, Florida and Michigan. So they recently announced some new rules where they can go up to 125% LTV on refinances. The catch is that this only applies to mortgages that are owned by FannieMae or FreddieMac. You can contact your loan servicer to check (call the customer service phone number on your mortgage statement). Or go online at FannieMae. com/LoanLookUp or FreddieMac.com/ MyMortgage. If your loan is owned by one of these, congrats! Ask your loan servicer to inquire about a refinance under the “Home Affordable Modification” program. If you have questions on this or any other real estate topic, call me at (925) 240MOVE (6683). To search the MLS for free and view virtual tours of homes for sale, go to: www.SharpHomesOnline.com.

District announces settlement

LUHSD names Employees of the Year The Liberty Union High School District Employees of the Year have at least one thing in common: they both keep things humming along. Heritage High School’s Visual and Performing Arts teacher Steve Ernest was honored by the district board as the 2009 District Teacher of the Year. Ernest has taught at Heritage since it opened in 2005 and in that short time has worked tirelessly to build the band and choir programs, which now include more than 100 student participants. Ernest lives in Brentwood with his wife Renate and their three children. He spends his spare time hiking, doing anything with his family and participating in local musical groups. When asked about future plans, he said, “I love teaching.” Steve is in the running for the County Teacher of the Year, which will be announced in September. The winner will enter the competition for the California State Teacher of the Year. After working at Liberty High School for 25 years, Beverly von Krakau was honored as the 2009 Classified Employee of the Year. She has served as the principal’s secretary at Liberty High School for the past 12 years, and was the registrar and SIP secretary before moving to this position. Friendly to everyone, “Bev” has managed to keep Liberty organized through administrative changes, tremendous growth in enrollment, schedule restructuring, and Smaller Learning Community implementation. When asked about her long career at Liberty, she said, “I can’t believe I’ve

She likes to take early morning walks, read, dine out and go camping. Bev looks forward to the pending birth of her third grandchild and to joining Bill in retirement next year and traveling.

The Liberty Union High School District is pleased to announce that on June 25, 2009, the District and Tanya Smith, a teacher at the district’s Heritage High School, resolved a claim that Ms. Smith had filed with the California Department of Industrial Relations, Division of Labor Standards Enforcement involving alleged retaliation against Ms. Smith for reporting safety concerns to the California Department of occupational Safety and Health. As part of the resolution, the district and Ms. Smith will work together to ensure that the district’s school sites remain free of any health or safety hazards, and that district employees and students work and attend school in a safe and healthy environment. The district’s Labor Management and Health Committee (also known as the District Health and Safety Committee), which implements the district’s Injury and Illness Prevention Program, remains committed to providing methods and processes for employees to facilitate a safe work environment and to timely respond to and act upon safety questions or concerns raised by employees. In collaboration with its employees, the district will continue to monitor its school sites for potential health or safety hazards and fix or remove any hazards that are discovered. The district remains committed to its mission of providing a safe environment for students. – Press release from the Liberty Union High School District.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Reintroducing CalHFA “While the financial market turmoil continues and California faces unique challenges economically, there is perhaps no more important time for our agency to work on behalf of families statewide,” said Steve Spears, acting Executive Director of the California Housing Finance Agency, otherwise known as CalHFA. Since the agency’s creation in 1975, CalHFA has helped over 150,000 California families realize their dream of homeownership by using over $18 billion in non-taxpayer funds to secure low rate fixed mortgages, as well as offer down payment assistance programs. Now, in 2009, CalHFA is once again putting its money where its mouth is and bringing back their most popular down payment assistance program to date…the California Homebuyer’s Downpayment Assistance Program. More commonly referred to as CHDAP, this junior or second loan/lien program, financed through voter-approved Propositions 46 and 1C, has been the most successful down payment assistance program in CalHFA’s history. Over the years it has provided more than 31,000 California families with the assistance needed to buy their first home and is once again becoming available after an 11 month hiatus. The program itself offers up to 3% of the purchase price, or the home’s appraised value - whichever is less - to the buyer for either assistance with their down payment, or to help with closing costs. Although the potential purchaser would first have to bring in their own 3% to match the funds being lent, the CHDAP loan has no repayment schedule until the new owner sells or refinances their home.

So what first loan out there can be paired with the CHDAP second lien program in order to allow the buyer to only bring in 3% of their own funds? For first time buyers – defined as a person(s) who has not had an ownership interest in their primary residence during the previous three years – CalHFA has also put in place (as of June 8, 2009) its new Cal30 program. This first mortgage allows for 95% financing at a 30 year fixed rate of 5.125%. Also, as an added benefit to the buyer, the Cal30 program allows for a maximum combined loan-to-value of 102% of the purchase price. What does that mean and how does it help you? Buying a home for $200,000 would result in a principal and interest payment of $1034.53 at 5.125% with an initial cash investment of $6000, 3% of the purchase price accordingly. The Cal30 principal loan amount would be $190,000 (95% of the purchase price), plus your $6000 down payment, plus another $6000 (or 3%) from the state via CHDAP to cover the remainder of the down payment, and assist with closing costs. According to Executive Director Steve Spear, “Because of the decline in real estate prices, the number of Californians who can now afford a home is twice what it was at this time last year,” now would be a great time to get pre-approved for this program and start looking for a new home. 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 on my new cell phone, (925) 726-1444. – Advertisement

Centex offers July sales incentives Centex is heating up the summer and offering options for big savings during its July Sale. Now through July 31, homebuyers who select a new Centex home that can close escrow by Sept. 30 will receive their choice of backyard landscaping or a window coverings and appliance package at no extra cost. This special summer offer is available at most area neighborhoods and comes in addition to Centex’s already reduced prices, generous builder incentives and low rate financing. “Our July Sale enables homebuyers to pick the package that best suits their needs. Either way, homebuyers will appreciate big savings and maximum enjoyment of their new Centex home right from the start,” says Pat Morgan, director of sales and marketing for Centex’s northern California/Reno division.

Since the backyard landscaping package and window coverings and appliances package are available for only a limited time, Centex is encouraging interested buyers to visit their favorite neighborhood and choose the perfect home today while selection is at its best. “Don’t miss out – hurry in for the best selection and start enjoying your new Centex home today,” says Morgan. Homebuyers will also have access to great financing rates available through Centex’s affiliate lender, CTX Mortgage. There’s still time for qualified buyers to take advantage of the $8,000 federal income tax credit.

Great cities have great libraries “When I read about the way in which library funds are being cut and cut, I can only think that American society has found more ways to destroy itself” (from Isaac Asimov’s autobiography). I applaud the Antioch City UEST Council for its’ June 9 decision COMMENT to at least temporarily shelve the proposal to cut library hours from the current weekly 52 to 28. Lord knows, American society doesn’t need additional ammunition for self-damage. Research confirms the obvious. More public and school library accessibility translates to more reading. More reading equates to better readers. Better readers become better school achievers. Better school achievers evolve into better citizens and more globally competitive workers. You don’t need the Hardy Boys to figure these connections. As our elementary schools have been forced by crippling budget restraints to half-time library techs, the more the necessity for public library access. In many regards, the

G

public library is the last resort, the final cultural firewall as children of lesser economic privilege are less likely to have books at home. Then, too, Antioch has 38 percent of its population under 18, the highest ratio in our county. Many of these youth are latch-key and in need of a safe, secure, supportive congregation point during the statistically deadliest youth crime hours of 3 to 6 p.m. The real irony is that we would cut libraries in the name of hard times. Senior citizens and people on low incomes need libraries even more for socializing, learning and for the free and simple art of reading in these times of economic angst. What then to say of the plight of our job seekers? Hungry for assistance, they are deluging our libraries to check periodicals and the Internet. Fact is, librarians have become more than resource people, but sympathetic ears for depressed, often desperate, people. These librarians are, in many regards, a front line of shock troops as our libraries are experiencing 10- to 20-percent usage spikes during this recession. This comes on top of what was already a reading

LETTERS Too many supes in the pot Editor: In a 1976 California Supreme Court decision (Serrano v. Priest), the court found that the existing system of financing schools was unconstitutional because it violated the equal protection clause of the state constitution and that property tax rates and per pupil expenditures should be equalized. The result – residents throughout the state who knowingly paid high property taxes to support their local school districts saw their money go to the state, combined with the rest of the property taxes, placed in one pot, and then equally distributed to each school district. Thus began the socialization of the California education system. Today, with the state’s education funding in turmoil, and ignoring this “landmark” decision, some people and politicians are quick to point to the governor’s office as the villain. Not true. Today, the real villain(s) are the school districts

themselves. Let’s be honest; if we are to share money across the state to insure that all students, no matter where they go to school, have an equal educational opportunity, then we need to go to the next step: Socialize the districts. There are too many school districts in the state. Currently, there are over 1,000 school districts, plus each county has its own office of education. So, what can happen locally, could serve as a remedy throughout California? Brentwood, Oakley, Knightsen, Byron, and the Liberty Union High School District – do we really need five school districts in East County? Perhaps at one point in time, when these communities were separated by vast orchards and cow pastures, it made sense. However, during the past 20 years, the growth in the East County has made boundaries indistinguishable. With five districts you have five superintendents, plus all of the administrative costs associated with that many districts. You also have five school boards, so you have to attend one meeting for your fifth-grader, and deal with a different group for your teen in high school. How much money is spent to provide “administrative services” to all of these school boards? To compare, the San Ramon Valley Unified School District provides educational services to students living in parts of Walnut Creek, Diablo, Alamo, Danville, San Ramon and the Dougherty Valley – a geographical map nearly equivalent to our East County. Yet, they are only one district, one superintendent, one school board, and produce some of the state’s highest test scores. As a result of being “unified,” more of the “equal funding” money they receive goes to teachers and the schools and less to “administrative costs.” The problem is that we have way too

resurgence for the county’ 25 branches, with a record-shattering 5 million library circulation in 2007, followed by a 6 million plus mark in 2008. City Council, I know that the upcoming decisions are brutally hard and that your heart is in the right place. I religiously avoid meddling and try to stick to school and county library business, but on this occasion I am compelled to plead the case for our youth, senior citizens, disadvantaged, and for all those who love the written word, that you do your utmost to keep our libraries accessible. Let us not give short shrift to a democratic, egalitarian institution so patently American that it was founded by Benjamin Franklin. Libraries, after all, are our hallowed civic and cultural touchstones, our bridges from the storied past to the visionary future. Simply put, great cities have great libraries. Antioch doesn’t want to settle for secondrate status; not for us adults, certainly not for our kids. Walter Ruehlig Antioch Representative C.C.C. Library Commission

many “boutique” facilities – districts that operate under the radar like a private entity by protecting and advancing their “own” and eliminating any competition by more experienced “outside” candidates. The LUHSD is a perfect example. When their superintendent, Dan Smith, announced his retirement on March 30, 2009, it took only two days for the district to “pass the torch” to Associate Superintendent Jerry Glenn. No advertisement of a job opening, no prospective candidates, and more importantly, no notification to the parents of this district for their input or comments. There are probably hundreds of million dollars in wasteful spending by having so many school districts in this state that if consolidated or unified would provide more funding for the schools, your children, and reduced teacher layoffs. Just do the math; do we really need five supes in this area at a combined cost of over $750,000, plus another $1 million to support their hierarchy? Ask yourself this question: With about 100 teacher layoff notifications in these five districts, how many administrators were laid off? And you thought those execs at AIG had it made? Al Del Grande Brentwood

Pathetic protest Editor: My suspicion is that these “Tea Parties” (“Tea Party takes to the streets,” July 10, Brentwood Press) are less about government taxation and more about Republican sour grapes for losing the last two elections handily. I have seen these street-corner protests and wondered what they are really angry

about. They are blaming Obama, but really, he has lowered taxes for most Americans, and the “bailouts” were started by Bush – does anyone remember that? Rightwingers have short memories, it seems. Bush was the one that sunk this country to new lows and Obama is trying to right the ship. Should he have just allowed us to slip into a deep depression? I don’t think most of these protesters get what’s at stake here … it’s the country, folks. What if there were no more American cars? We have already seen what’s happened to Detroit, and it’s about to hit home at the NUMMI plant in Fremont. Hundreds of thousands would be out of work if the government hadn’t temporarily “bailed out” GM and others. Now, the banks are a different story, I’ll protest right along with you on that one. They were given money to try and stop the bleeding, but they are hoarding it and taking care of their own bottom line, or buying out smaller companies, like B of A buying Merrill Lynch and Countrywide. It’s pure thievery. In the last few months, the airwaves, papers and the net have been full of angry right-wing rhetoric, with no teeth, really. Just protest for the sake of protest. Republicans, you lost the election; “the will of the people” was heard loud and clear. As a moderate Democrat, I refuse to stand idly by and let Republicans trash-talk our current government. We are a lot better off now than we have been for the past eight years, people; that is obvious to anyone. Stop protesting and start coming together. Our federal government is doing the best it can right now. The Republican-run state of California, on the other hand, … David Lewis Brentwood

Operation will enforce safe boating Compassion Marine Patrol Units from Contra Costa County, San Joaquin County, Sacramento County, Alameda County and the United States Coast Guard will be conducting a boating safety enforcement operation during the weekend of July 18-19. The operation is intended to promote safe boating through education and enforcement on the waterways within San Joaquin County. The sheriff’s Marine Services Unit urges boaters to observe the following rules: • All vessels must have a U.S. Coast Guard approved life vest for each person. The life jacket must fit the person intending to wear it. Children under 12 are required to wear a life jacket.

• You must be 16 or older to operate a power boat or personal watercraft. All persons on a personal watercraft are required to wear an approved life jacket. • Boats more than 16 feet in length are required to carry a throwable and readily accessible flotation device. • Always travel at a safe speed. Slow down in narrow channels and blind areas and navigate on the right side of the waterway. At a cross waterway, the boat on the right has the right of way. • Always carry an emergency kit that includes a flashlight, warm clothing, cell phone, VHF radio and chart. Boaters are encouraged to call Sheriff’s Dispatch at

925-646-2441 for emergencies on the water. Be sure to file a float plan before you depart. The Marine Service Unit will be enforcing the no-tow zone in Indian Slough from Discovery Bay to Orwood Resort. This includes Werner Cut. The “ABC’s of Boating,” a handbook of boating rules, is available from most boating shops. The Marine Services Unit will be distributing them this weekend as well. Boaters can also go to the California Department of Boating and Waterways Web site, www.dbw.ca.gov. For more boating safety information, call Public Information Officer Jimmy Lee at 925-313-2643.

Approximately $33 billion a year is spent on diet and weight loss programs, yet there are more overweight Americans today than ever before. The great news is, there are many of these people that have decided to close the door on all the Diet hype. Instead, a growing number of these people are turning to the advice of a health professional who is approaching weight loss in a completely different way that is safe, effective and helps people change the way they think about food, when they eat it, how they eat it and why they eat it and body chemistry testing that uncovers internal metabolic disturbances causing people to struggle losing weight of failing to lose weight no matter what they try. This breakthrough, not so diet approach that has already helped dozens of people lose weight successfully, is Doctor supervised non surgical brain based weight loss treatment coupled with extensive but inexpensive full blood testing with full male or female hormone testing as well as adrenal gland hormone function testing. Why would you go to a weight loss center that doesn’t have the ability to check your thyroid function completely (not the basic minimal tests your doctor orders), check your liver to determine if it is filtering and recycling your hormones (if not, you may never lose weight) check your hemoglobin levels to see if you’re carrying enough oxygen through your blood to help actually burn fat, detect hidden chronic inflammation which may make it difficult for your internal organs to function properly (ever

try to walk on an inflamed sprained ankle? Organs Don’t work so good inflamed either) How about checking your blood sugar levels to make sure you are not developing diabetes or already have it (makes it hard to lose weight if you have blood sugar balance problems). Dr. James Martin D.C. has created what he feels may be the most comprehensive weight loss program he has ever seen. How about weeks and weeks of no brainer, easy to follow grocery lists and meal plans you make yourself with real food that are fun and you will enjoy? No packaged or microwaved food just stuff you would buy at the grocery store like normal. How about a staff that monitors you and supports you every step of the way to ensure you stay on track to reach your weight loss goal and answer any question you could have about losing the weight quickly and safely.

How can you make a long term change? The subconscious mind often files away and stores not so positive thoughts or negative behaviors that can release tendency for destructive or unhealthy habits. For overweight people, a problem with their ability to modify these bad habits can be seen as they spend their whole life battling this problem. The most effective way to get around this problem is to change the way you think and the choices you make with new brain based weight loss treatments. In an ultra relaxed state that is similar to a hypnotic state, it is easier to incorporate new habits, explains Dr. James Martin D.C., clinic director of his Weight Loss Center in Brentwood, Ca. says “People really aren’t dumb. They know what they should do, drinking more water, eating proteins and veggies,

not eating late at night, etc. They just can’t turn these desirable behaviors into permanent habits. By using brain based weight loss treatments to jump past your subconscious, we can help patients make changes and long lasting new habits. Dr. Martin says brain based weight loss is like being extremely focused and relaxed sometimes called “CVR” or creative visualization. With brain based weight loss treatments (patients love the treatments), we speed up your ability to take in new suggestions. Bad or undesirable habits that lead to your weight gain are traded effortlessly for smarter choices that lead to desirable behaviors and you start to finally lose weight and bust out of your bad habits. We help patients think and eat like a thin person by reprogramming their subconscious. They lose weight automatically and have long term results because they’ve changed the way they think about what foods they eat, when they eat and why. As soon as you have successfully replaced your old habits with new good habits, you never have to actively think about diets any more because your weight is no longer an issue..

Break Through Your Weight Loss Barrier More and more are looking for a smart, effective and new approach to long-term weight loss have found brain based weight loss treatments with amazing and lasting results. Dr. Martin has seen people who have received brain based type weight loss treatments, maintained their weight loss for more than 10+ years without even thinking about it. The real secret to looking and feeling how you want is all about developing the kinds of habits that can help you live the life

you want. Then, we help you make those new habits just happen without effort. Have you gained and lost weight multiple times? Do you lose some weight while dieting, only to end up gaining it all back and then some? Have you tried a number of different weight loss programs only to fail? Do you eat everything on your plate, even when you are already full? Do you eat when you are upset, angry or stressed out? Are you always thinking about food? If you said yes to any of these questions, brain based weight loss may be your solution. Brain based weight loss treatment is spreading across the country and some of the most well-respected hospitals have incorporated these brain based type of therapy into their treatments. If your weight loss center is not doing extensive blood testing and hormone testing to evaluate your metabolic internal function for roadblocks to your weight loss and guide you to correct any imbalances with natural proven researched supplements and botanicals that can improve your hormonal and metabolic health or helping change your behavior for a lasting change you may want to call for more information, or to schedule a complimentary brain based and metabolic weight loss screening with our weight loss program director Dr. James Martin D.C. and a FREE demonstration treatment to find out if you are a candidate for simple and easy weight loss

‘Night’ reveals funny side of Shakespeare The Antioch Classical Theatre Company (ACTC) presents Shakespeare’s comedy “Twelfth Night” at the El Campanil Theatre Friday, July 17 at 8 p.m. and Saturday, July 18 at 2 and 8 p.m. Beloved for its marvelous wit, exquisite language and rich characterization, “Twelfth Night” tells the tale of Viola and Sebastian, twins separated briefly by shipwreck. When they wash up in an unknown land, sorrow turns to laughter as Viola disguises herself as a boy, and love soon turns everything topsy-turvy. For season three, ACTC welcomes back director Rob Addison, whose previous credits at ACTC include last season’s celebrated production of “As You Like It,” and “The Comedy of Errors” in 2007. According to Addison, “Twelfth Night” is “one of my favorite’s because it blends comedy and romance. I’ve always been attracted by Viola’s story: this woman forging her own way in unknown country.” In her fourth season at ACTC, Victoria Zachary returns in the role of Viola. “Viola’s ability to adapt to her situation and her passion for living are what make her so likeable,” said Zachary, whose favorite roles at ACTC include Audrey in “As You Like It” and the Courtesan in “The Comedy of Errors.” Kacey Waisanen, playing Olivia, said her favorite ACTC roles include Celia in “As You Like

It” and the Widow in “The Taming of the Shrew.” Waisanen is completing her cinema degree at San Francisco State University and currently works with the “Mr. Funnelhead” show. Nick Jackson, also a fourth-year company member, returns to play Malvolio, a role he enjoys because “the audience finds him so funny, but Malvolio takes everything he says and does completely seriously. So it’s a great challenge.” Jackson recently completed productions with the Impact Theatre and the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival, where he will be returning in the fall for the school tour of “Hamlet.” ACTC’s pioneer Sean J. O’Neil is pleased that in spite of tight economic times, ACTC is still putting on professional theater for the local community: “You know, when things are a little sparse, it forces you to be creative in ways you wouldn’t normally be, which I think is a good thing.” Tickets for “Twelfth Night” are $12 for adults and $10 for seniors, children and students. Call the box office at 925-757-9500 or visit www. elcampaniltheatre.com. The El Campanil Theatre is located at 602 W. Second St. in downtown Antioch.

Summer storytime at Brentwood Library It’s time to gather the children around for storytime at the Brentwood Library. As the library settles into its new home, it’s welcoming little ones to take part in three new storytime opportunities that will help them develop basic skills such as listening, attentiveness, interaction with an instructor and other children, and knowledge of simple concepts such as colors, animals and shapes. Lapsit Baby Storytime, designed for children up to age 2, is held every Thursday at 10:30 a.m. through Aug. 20. Even the smallest babies benefit from these special sessions. The storyteller leads children and their caregivers through easy fingerplays, bounces and songs, and introduces them to colorful, engaging picture books. Early exposure to books and the spoken word assists in brain development and encourages language skills and creativity that benefit children for life. For children 2½ to 3½, the library offers Toddler Time on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11:30 a.m. The Toddler Time summer session also runs through Aug. 20 and engages children and their caregivers in a wide variety of books and activities. Preschoolers from 3½ to 5 will

enjoy Picture Book Time, held Tuesdays at 1:30 p.m. through Aug. 18. At this age, children are beginning to refine their vocabulary, develop social skills and retain basic facts. For caregivers (and busy children) unable to visit the library for a morning or afternoon storytime this summer, the library also offers ongoing storytimes later in the day. Children of all ages can snuggle up for a story during Pajama Time, held every Monday at 7 p.m. Pajamas are optional, but who doesn’t want to wear fuzzy slippers to the library every now and then? For those who prefer stories in the afternoon, a volunteer Book Buddy is happy to share books with children on Mondays from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the children’s area. (Call ahead to confirm whether the Book Buddy is in.) Storytimes take place in the seating area. The Brentwood Library, now located at 104 Oak St., is open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information about the library and its programs, call 925-516-5290, or visit www.ccclib.org.

OBITUARY Richard D. Yakel March 27, 1939-June 14, 2009 Richard, a resident of Antioch for more than 40 years, passed away last month with his loving family by his side. He was born in Lincoln, Neb. and lived all over Texas, Oklahoma and in Littleton, Colo., where he met his wife of 51 years, Jan Yakel. He and Jan had just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last year. Dick was a member of the Local 8 Brick Layers Union in Oakland, and helped build the Moscone Center in San Francisco and Marine World in Vallejo. He also helped rebuild downtown Walnut Creek and Concord in brick. He also volunteered to build the Babe Ruth and Little League dugouts and snack shacks in Antioch. We can see his beautiful work in every city in the Bay Area. Dick and Jan participated in bowling leagues for several years at Delta Bowl. One of his favorite activities was loading up the motor home and visiting Disneyland with the grandkids, or camping at Phoenix Lake. He and Jan joined the Fun Runners car club after building his 1932

Ford Roadster. They went on several Rod Runs. Dick enjoyed all types of music, from Cajun to Creedence. He would always sing, and tell wonderful stories about his past. Taking Jan to see Elvis was one of his favorite trips. A Giants fan, he called his neighbor Josie Sexton almost every day to make sure she had her TV on. Dick is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Jan Yakel; daughter and son-in-law, Richan and GT Lyons; granddaughters, Kristen(Richie) and Maren (Freddy); grandson, Adrian Lyons; great grandsons, Victor, Takeo, Orlando and Sebastian; great granddaughter, Katalina; son, Rick Yakel ; daughter and son-in-law, Kelly and Kirk Adams; granddaughters, Kayla and Kendall; grandson, Kristofer; brother, Dave Yakel (Karen); and sister, Sue Enes (Jerry).

COMMUNITY

Teen talent has success sewn up by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Sara Trail is only 14, but the Antioch teen hopes no one will hold it against her. Despite her youth, the high school sophomore is developing a reputation as a sewing and quilting phenom; a teenage Rachel Ray. “I would love to have a show like Rachel Ray but geared toward sewing and quilting,” said Sara. “It’s really more about the creative aspect than the talent. It’s about applying yourself and not giving up. Anyone can do what I do.” Perhaps, but few have experienced a summer like Sara has. The wunderkind recently returned from a cross-county press tour, appearing on local ABC and CBS affiliates in Florida and Atlanta, promoting her first book, “Sew with Sara.” Thanks to the efforts of her mom Kay (“she’s a great promoter and really nice supporter”), who organized the book signings, Sara has enjoyed the broadcast circuit, but what has really impressed her has been the behind-the-scenes activities. “It was really a lot of fun,” said Sara of her television guest spots. “All the anchor people and camera crew were so nice, but what was really fun was that they do your hair and makeup; made me feel like a star.” And a rising star at that. Sara began sewing and quilting at 8. She remembers being struck by the myriad fabrics and creativity involved in bringing patterns and designs to a finished product. Since then, the surprisingly grounded young woman has continued to dazzle even her greatest supporters with her

maturity, creativity and natural ability. “I’ve never seen anyone like Sara. She needs to look at something only once and she can do it,” said Eleanor O’Donnell, Sara’s good friend and mentor. “She’s got excellent instincts. I’m old enough to be her grandmother, and when I see someone at her age who can look at a pattern and figure it out – well, it’s just amazing.” Sara’s first book (“yes, I plan to write another book at some point”) is a how-to of eight simple but teen-friendly items, including pajama pants, tote bags, hair scrunchies and iPod covers. She also teaches classes at local fabric stores for both sewing and quilting, and has made dozens of her own outfits, which she wears when attending a book signing. “I always wear something I made when I go to meet people,” said Sara. “Because the first thing they ask me is if I made what I’m wearing. It’s very fun to hear their responses

But when all is said and done, said York, the real draw of the CornFest is community. “You know none of this could have happened without the support of all the volunteers and service organizations,” he said. “They are really the ones who put it all together and do such a fantastic job. The CornFest is truly a community event.”

Meeting people is really fun; it’s a big part of what I love about it.” When she’s not sitting at the sewing machine or signing copies of her book, Sara can be found scouring thrift stores for fabrics and design ideas, hanging out with her friends, or riding her go-kart up and down her neighborhood court. Her favorite outfits are typical teen favorites: jeans and T-shirts. “I’m a regular teen. I do all the things other teenagers do, too,” she said. “I love going to the movies and reading; all that kind of stuff. I just enjoy other things, too.” But as fun as the spotlight is at the mo-

ment, savvy Sara continues to keep her eye on the future, a future that includes more than a needle and thread. “I plan to go to either Harvard or Stanford and major in science and art,” she said. “I eventually want to be a college teacher but I also want to open a fashion store. Chemistry and art are similar in a way; they are both creative.” O’Donnell is sure that whatever Sara decides, her sweet seamstress will be a success: “She’s just a natural talent, a wonderful girl. Whatever she chooses to do, she’ll do it well.” For more information, visit Sara’s Web site, www.sewsarasew.com.

Twins twice as nice The Antioch Major Softball League girls 9-12year-old division Twins cruised to a league championship in Antioch’s Little League inaugural season after combining West and East Little League Organizations. Expectations were tempered by the fact that the Twins put eight first-year players on the field, five of whom were 10 or younger. After losing its first game of season, the team ran off two long winning streaks, of nine and 10 games – the latter of which closed out the season, giving the Twins an impressive 19-2 league record and a six-game cushion over their closest competitor. “Coaching this team was a joy to me,” said Twins Manager Dennis Felix. “Having such a young team, many people doubted the ability of our young players and how they would mix in with our older girls. What we found out is they have become better players and gained valuable experience for next year.” Led by the aggressive base running and powerful bats of 12-year-olds Maranne Johnson, Noelle Casey

and Jennifer Walters, the Twins scored 320 runs, averaging 15 per game. The pitching tandem of 12-yearolds Jackie Clark and Kylie “The Closer” Cast, plus a stingy defense led by shortstop Maranne Johnson and catcher Megan Stockton, helped put the 10-run mercy rule in effect with frequency: only seven games made it past the fourth inning. The Twins were cruising into the District 4 Tournament of Champions (TOC) to play all the League Champions from Martinez, Pinole-Hercules, Concord/Walnut Creek, Pittsburg, East County and Clayton Valley leagues. Antioch’s Twins won the first round game 6-0 and advanced to second round, where they beat East County Rebels 12-2. They then lost to powerhouse Bears of Martinez, led by eight 12-year-olds, to finish the outstanding season as TOC runners-up. The Twins will be well represented in District 4 All-Star Championships – all 12 members of Twins team have been named to their age-appropriate All Star squads.

Skating from page 1B It began promisingly with a great deal on a Bishop-Wisecarver building that was planned to be torn down in Pittsburg, which was a perfect size for a hockey rink: 350 feet long with 100 feet of clear space width (no support beams down the middle for skaters to run into). “I have some family members who are steel workers,” said Fossenburg. “We made a deal with the demolition company. He paid us $1 to take the building down. Nobody thought we could get it down. We had it down in 10 days, stacked, trucked and sitting on our property out here in Antioch.” But breaking down and putting back together a massive building (with a new roof) proved to be a piece of cake compared

to breaking down resistance from Antioch planning officials worried that there weren’t enough parking spaces, among other concerns. “We thought it would be a good fit for the area,” said Fossenburg. “We knew it was a large building being put on a not quite big enough piece of property. We tried to show them that there would be a little bit of a parking issue but not a major one. We could use probably another 25 parking spaces. There were lots of little hurdles to jump through. We never knew why it was so hard to put up a kids project in the city. I think they have gotten better with projects like this, especially with the times we are in now.” All hurdles were finally negotiated, and the center has been rocking and rolling since

it opened. “The public has absolutely loved this place,” said Fossenburg. “At the ribbon cutting, they said, ‘Oh, my God, this place is beautiful.’” With so many activities going on, the center is practically a three-rink circus, if you’ll pardon the pun. In addition to public skating, the rink is heavily used by roller hockey teams such as the Ducks, Redwings, Kings, Sharks, Lightning, Mighty Caseys, Bud X and Inferno, who participate in leagues at different age levels. In a couple of weeks soccer leagues will be starting up, and the batting cages get regular use. In addition, volleyball will begin later this year along with three-on-three basketball, wrestling tournaments, Tae Kwon Do and something called pickle ball, which Fossen-

burg said is like tennis but with a whiffle ball being hit by a racquetball paddle. The center is also a popular spot for kids’ birthday parties, providing a combination of Aladino’s pizza, sodas and skating. It’s been a major investment of time, work and money, but Fossenburg considers it a success so far. “Me and my wife are broke, but it’s going in the right direction now where things are picking up for us. We keep adding things to the rink. We bought counters and displays and things of that sort. If we get through this year, next year will be a great year for us, because there won’t be many things we have to buy.” For more information, go online to www.antiochindoorsportscenter.com or call 925-778-6363.

Spinal injury treatment Those suffering from the excruciating effects of spinal fractures formerly had few options other than long-term traction and/or body braces. Living with the chronic discomfort – typically the result of osteoporosis or tumors – was an always-painful and often-permanent condition. But about 15 years ago a minimally invasive procedure called balloon kyphoplasty began being used to repair certain spinal fractures. Over the years this procedure has restored mobility and eliminated pain for hundreds of thousands of individuals. Last March, Dr. David Chow performed East County’s first balloon kyphoplasty procedure at Sutter Delta Medical Center’s Pain Management Center in Antioch. For both patient and doctor, the experience was a success. “The staff did a great job and the patient did real well,” said Chow. Chow’s patient, Helen Kilbourne, 82, became a candidate for kyphoplasty following a fall at home. At first, believing that the injury was nothing more than a pulled muscle, the East County resident – with a history of osteoporosis and back injuries – knew she was in trouble when a few days later she was still in debilitating pain. “I knew it was more than a pulled muscle, so I went to Dr. Chow and he told me I was a candidate for this procedure,” said Kilbourne. “Dr. Chow told me that when I woke up from the operation I would have no pain in the spot he operated on, and he was right. I’m still sore, but I’m healing very well.” Vertebral compression fractures occur

when one of the bones of the spinal column weakens, collapses or breaks. With balloon kyphoplasty, the physician creates a narrow pathway, approximately 1 cm in length, into the fractured bone. A tiny orthopedic balloon is then guided into the vertebra and inflated, lifting the collapsed vertebra and placing it into its normal position. From there the balloon, which has created a space between the vertebral body, is deflated and removed. The space left by the balloon is then filled with a substance called bone cement. The cement stabilizes the fracture, forming a cast that holds the vertebra in place. Generally, the procedure is done on both sides of the vertebra. The cement is a permanent glue designed to last 30 to 40 years. The procedure itself takes about an hour, and is done under either local or general anesthesia. In most cases, the patient can go home the same day. “Many of my patients are elderly, well up into their 80s,” said Chow. “And what’s so great about this is that it is minimally invasive and almost everyone has good results. It’s very satisfying to be able to treat the pain, repair the fractures, and in the process dramatically restore and improve someone’s quality of life. It’s all pretty amazing.” For Kilbourne, amazing doesn’t begin to describe her results: “The only other option I would have had would have been traction and a brace. And I’ve done that before and it’s awful and painful. This is an amazing procedure. I can’t say enough about the nurses at Sutter Delta and Dr. Chow. I’m just so grateful to everyone. For me, this has truly been a miracle.”

Health partnership tackles uninsured Against the backdrop of impending budget cuts that threaten the health care safety net, plus the unemployed losing their health coverage, the leaders of several local health systems are calling for joint action. Contra Costa Health Services, John Muir Health, Kaiser Permanente, La Clinica de la Raza, Planned Parenthood, Shasta Diablo and Sutter Delta Medical Center issued a briefing paper describing the impact of the economy on health access – especially in East Contra Costa County. “Even before the current economic situ-

ation was declared a recession, the health providers serving East Contra Costa County had begun working together to explore how to expand capacity and were working to develop a long-range Master Plan,” said Contra Costa Health Services Director Dr. William Walker. “The dramatic increase in the number of uninsured has turned this effort into an immediate need.” The briefing paper (viewable online at www.cchealth.org) highlights the impact of the economy on the ability of East Contra Costa residents to receive health care.
