Gorilla Rilla turns alien for Marvel movie promotion by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer

Brentwood resident and Oakland Raiders die-hard fan Mark Acasio benched his iconic Gorilla Rilla costume for the first time in 23 years during the team’s Sept. 30 home game against the Cleveland Browns. But the primate’s one-game replacement was equally as intriguing – one that garnered him some Hollywood acclaim. Sony Pictures, the production company behind the “Venom” movie, paid Acasio an undisclosed amount to don a Venom

costume in his famed Oakland Alameda Coliseum Black Hole seat for the duration of the Sept. 30 Raiders game. Sony then sweetened the deal with an all-expenses-paid trip to the Southern California red carpet premiere of “Venom,” complete with access to the film’s actors and a host of celebrities. “What made my decision (to bench the Gorilla Rilla character) that much quicker was when the Raiders picked up and said they are going to Vegas,” said Acasio of the Raiders impending move. “To me it’s a business decision, just like it was for (the Raiders)

Abandoned boats threat to Delta Abandoned vessels like this one near Holland Tract are part of a state assembly bill aimed at removing dilapidated boats.

by Tony Kukulich Staff Writer

If there’s a single story that serves as the poster child for the problem of abandoned and derelict commercial vessels in the San Joaquin-Sacramento Delta, it’s that of the Spirit of Sacramento – an 87-foot paddle wheel boat that had seen better days when it last went up for auction in 2016. “It ended up in a marina in the Bay Area,” said Gary Madison with the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff marine patrol unit. “The former owner stopped paying the dock fees, and it was auctioned off to some guys that had no idea what they were doing. Somehow they ended up in Franks Tract, and we gave them citations for many violations. They started it up, and it proceeded to sink and leave a huge diesel slick.” When the Spirit of Sacramento capsized in September 2016 it was estimated to be carrying 600 gallons of diesel fuel that threatened

The vessel that had been purchased at auction for $1,000 created an environmental hazard and cost the U.S. Coast Guard approximately $1.6 million and Contra Costa County $100,000 to remove.

Pig island owner seeks attorney by Aly Brown Staff Writer

Many boaters across the Delta recall an island inhabited by pigs, but the ending of that tale has since spiraled into a haze. However, for Roger Stevenson, the animals’ owner, the story is still heavy on his mind as he continues to search for an attorney who will represent his case a year after the pigs were taken from him. “I realized the only way for this to be resolved was a lawsuit against my county,” said Stevenson, an Arnold resident. “My claim was that I was promised a due process and my pigs would be held until then, however, by the time I was vindicated, they refused to return them like they promised.” Prior to the court case that ruled in his favor in September 2017, one must go back to the beginning, when the pigs dominated a small patch of land in the Delta, informally known by locals as ‘pig island.’ Stevenson knew the island’s owner and that they wanted to clear the area of dense overgrowth to create a sand garden and boater sanctuary. “My idea was to bring some hogs to the island and clear up some of its vegetation,” he said, adding that he boated to the island and regularly brought the pigs their favorite treat. “They just loved Chinese food. They would crawl into my boat practically.” Stevenson also noticed the animals loved to swim and forage for hyacinth, the invasive non-native weed that floats in the water and is the bane of all boaters’ existence.

The Delta island that was once home to a family of pigs was cleared a year ago. Their owner is currently seeking an attorney willing to take his case. “For (the pigs) to be out there eating hyacinth makes more sense than to bring poisons that harm the fish,” he said. “They’re now bringing mechanical harvesters to remove the (hyacinth). Why take all of that perfectly good feed, take it to the landfill and then go out and cultivate land to grow grains and haul them by truck to feed animals? It’s backward. With a little bit of common sense, there are a lot of remedies to common problems.” Stevenson’s pigs soon gained attention

from boaters throughout the Delta, who were delighted by the sight of enormous pigs wading in the water and leading around piglets who were born on the island. “People would bring out 30-pound bags of feed and a shelter was built for them,” said Discovery Bay resident Jim Mattison, who noted people often asked him to take them to Pig Island on his boat. “Most everyone who stopped by brought fruits and vegetables for them too.”

The attention was welcomed by Stevenson, as he said the consistent human interaction kept the animals from going feral as some had warned. A Facebook fan group was created and visitors shared photos of their families and friends sitting on the beach with the island’s inhabitants. But not everyone saw the pigs’ living condition as suitable. Concerns about the welfare of the animals were brought to the attention of Farm Sanctuary, a nonprofit animal rescue organization. “We went through all the legal channels and we got permission to get them, and we took them in,” Farm Sanctuary Director Susie Coston reported to CBS last June. Stevenson said he didn’t believe it was inhumane for animals to sleep outdoors or forage for food. “Animal activists got this crazy idea that these animals were abused and neglected,” Stevenson said. “(Farm Sanctuary) came out, rented a barge, stole the pigs off of the island and transported them by trailer to UC Davis under the guise that they were sick and abused and malnourished ... the vets at UC Davis concluded that the pigs were some of the healthiest pigs they had seen there, a stark contradiction to what these animal-rights activists had claimed.” Instead of being returned to the island, the animals were returned directly to Stevenson, who admitted he wasn’t equipped to house them at his Arnold home.

Community events continue for Tia by Aly Brown Staff Writer

As Tia Longmire, the Edna Hill Middle School student who was struck by a car while walking to school in September, continues to inch toward recovery the community is ramping up its support for the family with a variety of local fundraising events. Events have been organized in Tia’s name to help raise funds for medical expenses including one large event that will take place at Campos Family Vineyards Nov. 9. Going back to the date of the incident, Tia, 11, was struck by a vehicle on Balfour Road and Guise Way while walking to school Sept. 17 and has been in critical condition at UC Davis ever since. She was in an induced coma to allow for optimal healing of the brain, but last week, Oct. 2, her eyelids fluttered open for the first time. “God is good, and my little girl has woken up – she is still in critical condition, but she’s on her way to not being in critical condition,” said her mother Tanya Hicks. While the doctors cannot give Tia’s family a firm answer to their questions on her future health and

recovery, Hicks said they have expressed optimism given the progress they’ve seen so far. “The word we’ve heard a lot since the accident is ‘hopeful,’” Hicks said. “With a brain injury – the brain is the least that they know about – it’s difficult to say for sure, but most kids in this situation … a lot of them come back the same way they were, and because of what they’ve seen with Tia and how she’s recovering quickly, (we think) she will be Tia again. They can’t put a ‘for-sure’ on that, but for me right now that’s good enough. That is awesome.” Since the accident, community members have hosted bake sales, created collages of artwork in Tia’s honor, hosted fundraisers at Dutch Bros. Coffee and will now hold an event at Campos slated to host about 1,000. “We’re just now starting to come out of the fog of it all …” said Pete Longmire, Tia’s paternal grandfather. “We appreciate people reaching out and supporting in all sorts of ways.” The Campos Family Vineyards fundraiser will be held Nov. 9, at 3501 Byer Road, Byron, in honor of Tia. The doors will open

at 6 p.m., and a performance by the band The Breakfast Klub will begin at 7 p.m. The cost is $25 per adult and accompanying children are free. Other fundraising efforts are GoFundMe accounts slated for unforeseen medical expenses and the cost incurred from taking time off work for Hicks who had started a new job prior to the accident. “All the prayers … I am very grateful and thankful – the first day was an open her eyes and go back to sleep kind of thing but the day after that, I knew she was my girl, my Tia,” said Hicks, who said her faith in God and Tia’s recovery was strong. “The injuries are there, and they are severe, but they will heal and she’ll be my girl again. And I am so happy – that’s all I wanted was to know she was going to be the girl she was before the accident.” To contribute, visit www. gofundme.com/11-year-old-girlhit-by-car or www.gofundme. com/brentwood-girl-hit-by-car.

reaking news in East County is often an around-the-clock occurrence, and we work hard to bring that news to you when and where it happens. Below is one of The Press’ most recent breaking-news headlines and photos. The full article

WWW.THEPRESS.NET

|

IS YOUR RATE LOCKED? A “rate lock” is a binding commitment from your lender that you will actually get the promised interest rate at the time of locking. Rate locks are usually for a set period of time, often 30-60 days. Usually you can’t lock until you’ve given your lender a full application and they’ve at least pre-approved you for a loan. In today’s period of rising interest rates, rate locks have become a critical issue. The rate your lender quotes you today might be gone tomorrow, not to be seen for a while! I recommend getting proof from your lender IN WRITING. This letter should spell out the rate and terms and it must also state very plainly that they are locked and for what time period. Don’t rely upon just a verbal commitment. Also ask if you have to pay for the rate lock up-front or as part of your settlement costs. And find out if it’s refundable if your loan doesn’t close for whatever reason. Be SUPER clear with your lender representative when you are ready to lock. I’ve heard horror stories about buyers who were

talking to their rep about locking, but never actually pulled the trigger, and then rates went up. It’s then too late to say, “I meant to lock last week…” Some people hesitate to lock too early, in case rates go down. You can ask your lender if they have a “float down” option, where your rate can’t go up, but it could go down if rates go down. That’s the best of both worlds, HOWEVER that type of rate lock costs more than the regular kind, of course, because there is more risk to your lender. If your transaction closing date gets delayed past your locked date, it may be possible to pay a fee to extend your lock. So keep in close contact with your lender representative if that happens.

Locals know beauty surrounds them at every turn, but what many don’t realize is their home is also a habitat unlike any in the world. Elements present on the East County side of Mount Diablo have created the perfect recipe for nurturing raptors such as the golden eagle, a massive bird with a 7-foot wingspan. Doug Bell, East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) wildlife program manager, has conducted in-depth studies on the birds of prey. He noted the district’s volunteer Golden Eagle Monitoring Team (GMT) monitors about 40 golden eagle nests, which are considered territories, in the two county areas each year. “The northern Diablo range (Carquinez to Pacheco Pass) is thought to harbor one of the densest nesting populations of golden eagles in the world,” said Bell. “We have golden eagles thanks to healthy rangelands and habitat on both public and private lands in the area that are well managed.” Michael Moran, EBRPD supervising naturalist at Big Break Visitor Center, explained that the abundant winds and copious ground squirrels skittering about in the open range and farmlands are factors that play into population success. “What makes it attractive for raptors

is that you figure if you’re a big bird ... your biggest use of energy is flapping wings,” said Moran. “You have those huge muscles in your chest, but when you get to a place like this, it’s windy and it suddenly reduces the need to flap – you save an awful lot of energy just that way.” Moran said the summertime hot air rises and mixes with the cooler air coming from the ocean, which then sweeps in and blows over the top of the Mount Diablo ridgeline, creating those optimal currents for the birds to surf. In the winter, those gusts come from another direction but still make it easier to either rest or live in the area during the colder months. “That oversimplifies it a bit, but it gives you an idea of why these birds are here,” said Moran. “We have all that open grassland and rangeland kept open by ranches and farms. There are also trees in great perches for making a nest, rocky outcrops from Mount Diablo – all meeting the needs of resident birds and migrants coming through.” Many residents in East County have noticed the raptors in part because they’re trying to keep their otherwise flightless chickens from taking to the skies against their will. Byron resident Jackie Reckas-Retelas lives on 1.5 acres of land and recently added eight free-range chickens to her property.

A breast cancer diagnosis can be a devastating blow, but statistics show that early detection and treatment is saving lives. An estimated 266,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 64,000 new cases of noninvasive, or in situ, breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among women in the U.S. this year, according to Breastcancer.org. The good news is that breast cancer incidence rates began decreasing in 2000 after increasing for the previous two decades. In addition, death rates from breast cancer have been decreasingly steadily since 1989. The National Cancer Institute says that the change in ageadjusted mortality rates are an indicator of the progress being made in the fight against breast cancer. The most recent SEER Cancer Statistics R e v i e w released in April 2018 indicates cancer death rates among women decreased by 1.4 percent per year between the years of 2006 and 2015. The American Cancer Society (ACS) reported decreasing death rates among major cancer types – including prostate, colorectal, lung and breast cancers – are driving the overall shift in

survival. The ACS says breast cancer death rates among women declined by 39 percent from 1989 to 2015. That progress is attributed to improvements in early detection and treatment protocols. For anyone doing the math, over the last 25 years or so, 322,000 lives have been saved from breast cancer. Finding breast cancer early and getting state-of-the-art cancer treatment are the most important strategies to prevent deaths from breast cancer. Breast cancer that’s found early when it’s small and has not spread is easier to treat successfully. Getting regular screening tests is the most reliable way to find breast cancer. The American Cancer Society has screening guidelines for women at average risk of breast cancer and for those at high risk for breast cancer. Increased knowledge about breast cancer, early detection through examinations and mammography and improved treatments are helping to drive up the survival rates of breast cancer.

Golfing for veterans

olfers looking to enjoy a day out on the links for a good cause need look no further. On Monday, Nov. 5, the fifth annual golf tournament to support the National Veterans Golden Age Games will be held at the Discovery Bay Golf & Country Club. Proceeds from the event go toward providing travel and hotel expenses for veterans who participate in the Golden Age Games. Brentwood resident Armand Alfred, seen here holding a copy of the Brentwood Press during last year’s games in New Mexico, said the work involved in organizing the golf tournament each year is worth the effort when he sees the end result. “My joy is that it helps those veterans who do not have the financial means to go to the games,” said Alfred. “The VA says that keeping (veterans) involved in sports as part of their recovery is important, and so that’s why we do our best to help.” For more information on the Discovery Bay golf tournament or to be a sponsor, call 925-216-2308 or email nvgag.charitygolf@gmail.com.

Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble presents fall production A tribute from Ken Ludwig to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, Ken Ludwig’s “The Fox On the Fairway” takes audiences on a hilarious romp filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors and over-the-top romantic shenanigans – it’s a furiously paced comedy about love, life and man’s eternal love affair with ... golf. “Ideal for theater lovers, golf lovers and anyone who loves to laugh, this is one show you won’t want to miss,” said director Helen Dixon. “The play will be performed at the Shadow Lakes Event Center, which is the perfect setting for a golf-themed comedy. What’s more, our audience will enjoy a dessert buffet and coffee service during the intermission included with their ticket. It will be a truly fun and memorable event.” The comedic cast features Ben Botello (Bingham), Kyle Conley (Justin), Ron Craven (Dickie), Teresa Grosserode (Pamela), Abby Phalen (Louise) and Wendy Rodriguez (Muriel).

“What I love about the show is of course, the obvious farcical humor, the clever lines, double meanings, and all the physical action that is typical of a Ken Ludwig play,” said Craven. “He has a great talent for somehow resolving all the issues in a positive and surprising manner by the final curtain, always delighting the audience.” Grosserode said she and her fellow cast members want everyone to join in the fun as they delve into the zaniness of the hilarious characters. “Maybe you wouldn’t chase each other, scream or take a swing (on the golf

course or otherwise) like these characters do, but wouldn’t it be fun to watch?” she said. “If you love comedy, theater or golf, you will love this show.” Performances will be held for one weekend only, at the Shadow Lakes Event Center, located at 401 Lakeview Drive in Brentwood, with evening shows on Friday, Oct. 12, and Saturday, Oct. 13, at 7:30 p.m.; and a matinee on Sunday, Oct. 14, at 2 p.m. Adult tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door; seniors and students are $22 in advance, $27 at the door. Groups can purchase a table for significant savings. A table of 8 is $175, and a table of 10 is $200. All tickets include a dessert buffet and coffee service during intermission. A no-host bar will be available preshow and during intermission. Due to adult humor, children under 7 will not be admitted. For tickets or additional information, visit www.ghostlightte.org.

Calaveras County Sheriff’s Department officers responded to a call about loose pigs on the highway. “When the pigs were running loose on the golf course, they were in heaven – they weren’t hurting a thing – but the neighbors didn’t like it and they called the sheriffs who chased them around on the golf course for five and a half hours,” Stevenson said, adding he was cited erroneously for having six pigs loose on the highway. “I knew they were never out on the highway – they were happy on 37-acre golf course – why would they want to climb the steep bank and get run over on the highway?” Stevenson further noted he was told the pigs would be held by animal control until he had due process and could prove they had not posed a danger to the public on the road. “When I did have my day in court, no

become a happy and meaningful one for those whose pets are truly family members. “Pets are an important part of life for many folks,” said Rev. Will McGarvey, copastor. “More than companions, they offer a significant benefit in therapy programs for the elderly, for children and for those with major health challenges.” From “Old Yeller” and “Babe” to “The Secret Life of Pets” and “Dr. Dolittle,” pets are widely acknowledged for their companionship, intelligence, emotional support and ability to reduce stress and loneliness as well as increase social interaction and selfesteem. So pack up your fur baby and join the celebration on Sunday, Oct. 14, at 10 a.m., and honor our furry, spiky, slimy, feathery and scaly friends, great and small. one could testify under oath that they saw the pigs on the highway and the judge ruled that the animal control couldn’t cite me on hearsay … they dismissed the charges,” he said. “But I was disappointed when the judge wouldn’t order them to give me the pigs back.” Stevenson said finding a local attorney willing to go up against the county has proven to be a task heftier than his pigs, and he believes he will need legal aid beyond Calaveras. If he is able to retrieve the animals, he said he hopes to one day return them to another island in the Delta. As of now, Stevenson said the pigs are once again housed by Farm Sanctuary, but he is not permitted to see them. “They were a very important part of my life and there’s a hole there now,” Stevenson said. “I have no reason to go out to the island on my boat anymore, and I still hold out a sliver of hope that I can bring suit against my county.” Calaveras County Animal Control and Farm Sanctuary did not respond for comment as of press time.

Candidate Lisa Romero, State Assembly District 11 I am a nurse, educator, leader, mother and Latina running for Assembly for District 11 which deserves positive change. My experience working in many areas of nursing over the last 28 years as a leader, nursing professor and volunteer in the community would be a valuable asset to the legislature and to my constituents. My upbringing, career, leadership and education give me a strategic and creative edge to advocate, create change and lead District 11 in the right direction. I want to be an assemblywoman because District 11 needs new leadership. My opponent, Jim Frazier, is the co-author of the gas tax which was passed without taxpayers’ vote, has no cap, increases with inflation and affects hardworking families. My opponent is also the chair of the Transportation Committee, which is 11 years behind schedule, started at $33 billion, is now at $77 billion and is estimated to be $100 billion. Every taxpayer needs to pay attention to these two issues. Residents say they want affordable housing; protections for our farmers and Delta by not supporting the twin tunnels; a focus on old and new business; resources for our veterans, mental health and teachers; improved and safer schools; affordable and accessible healthcare;

answers to homelessness; a focus on climate change and preserving our environment; promotion of healthy aging and protections of our pensions, Social Security and retirements; and an advocate for every taxpayer. My family includes my husband, Mariano, and two children, Abryanna and Valentino. We enjoy riding Harley Davidsons, attending church, the outdoors and being a part of the theater and Kajukenbo martial-arts community. I will bring transparency, fiscal responsibility and accountability to the residents in District 11. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/electlisaromero or www.electlisaromero.com.

Eagles

from page 8

children, a golden eagle appeared as if from nowhere and attacked the objects. “He flew in the middle of two kites and was tangled for a moment,” she said. “He looked like a young bird and was totally confused by his encounter with those funny-looking ‘birds’ dressed in their Sunday-go-meeting feathers.” Reckas-Retelas said the eagle patrolled her property every day for about a week after the incident and she is currently formulating a plan to keep her chickens safe. Moran said the encounter the Byron resident described likely was the work of a juvenile eagle. “Some studies have shown that resident adult eagles have top priority of hunting spots,

so if you get somebody who’s relatively new, you might be seeing a juvenile, looking for food and staking out their own place,” he said. “They do eat chickens. For those with freerange chickens … you may need to put thick wire over their roaming territory to protect them from avian predators.” While the birds are protected from hunting under the Bald Eagle Protection Act of 1940, which was later amended in 1962 to include golden eagles, they are not without their share of problems in East County. Wind turbines, which provide green energy, have also been the cause for population reduction and subsequently extensive research. Some of the first wind turbines in the area were erected in the 1970s along the Altamont Pass on Highway 580. Moran said between the turbines’

placement in the wind, their tall towers (ideal for nesting) and the space cleared of grass to create a fire-defensible space (easier to spot prey), they became an unfortunate attraction to the eagles who could not see the blades when blurred with rapid movement. The newer and far more efficient wind turbines on Vasco Road move slowly, in part for their impact on these animals. “It is important to know if we have a selfsustaining population through time in spite of wind-farm mortality,” said Bell. Another problem for the eagles is when farmers, ranchers and homeowners attempt to tackle their ground-squirrel problem with poison. “We recognize that people don’t want to lose their chickens or want to get rid of ground

squirrels to keep their cows from breaking their ankles, but there is a way to mitigate that so the poison doesn’t go up the food chain,” Moran said. Overall, Moran encouraged residents to get outside and take a look around. “Go through the day proudly that you do have golden eagles in your backyard and most folks in the world will never get the chance to see something like that,” he said. “You have a chance to see some of this natural heritage that’s right outside the backdoor.” Those with questions on reducing ground squirrel infestation without poison should contact the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources at https://ucanr.edu or 925-608-6670.

ESTATE PLANNING FOR SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS

Press file photo

Claudio Feliz, brother-in-law of Joaquin Murrieta, leads his gang on a raid of John Marsh’s home in 1850. Ancestors of Murrieta will attend Heritage Day on Oct. 20.

History and hiking on Heritage Day Descendants from opposing sides of a deadly raid 168 years ago will come together peacefully Oct. 20 on the site the bloody incident took place. The occasion is the John Marsh Historic Trust’s fifth annual Heritage Day, a free community event held in the Marsh Creek State Historic Park. Co-hosted by California State Parks, it will include a pair of hikes in and around the usually closed park, presentations on Native American culture, children’s activities, live music, a petting zoo and more. Local filmmaker, Todd Myers of Dragonfly Films, is currently producing a feature film about the notorious bandit Joaquin Murrieta and will be a guest speaker at the event. Heritage Day will be held on the grounds of John Marsh’s 7,000 square foot sandstone mansion, built in 1856. A number of the Murrieta family will be on hand as will members of Marsh’s family. In 1850, Claudio Feliz, Murrieta’s brother-in-law, raided Marsh’s Rancho Los Meganos home in 1850. He robbed Marsh and killed a man staying with him. Murrieta soon joined the gang, and when Feliz was killed by vigilantes two years later, Murrieta became the gang’s leader, embarking on a bloody, three-year spree of robbery, murder and revenge. Historians Bill and Kathleen Mero, who retraced Marsh’s journey from the East Coast to what was then Alta, California, will also speak. They’ll discuss common misconceptions about the man who was the first to practice Western medicine in California and who became the first Anglo settler in Contra Costa County in 1838. “A lot of important, yet largely forgotten, events took place on Marsh’s rancho, and we’re excited to help bring that history to life,” said Rick Lemyre,

One of my favorite types of client to work with is the small business owner. Being a business owner myself, I appreciate the risks and rewards of owning your own company and I enjoy learning about other businesses. If I can help a family protect their business it is very rewarding. When it comes to creating an estate plan for a business owner there are some considerations that need to be addressed. A carefully crafted plan will integrate language regarding your business in your trust and power of attorney. This language will authorize your trustee/agent to operate the business in your absence. Without this, your family might end up in court to get control of bank accounts or seek the authority to sell assets. I have had cases where employees couldn’t get paid because of the incapacity of the owner. I have seen companies tied up in probate for years because of the death of the owner. This can all be avoided if you prepare properly. If you are an S-Corporation, your trust

must contain specific language to comply with IRS rules. This is simple language, but template-based trusts that are not customized might be lacking this. Business owners should also make sure that their corporate or LLC ownership interest is properly titled in the trust. Failure to properly title an asset is a common problem. Perhaps equally important as getting the document language correct is the need for a business owner to think about what would happen to them if they were incapacitated or deceased. Can the company continue to operate and generate income? Is it possible to sell the business as a going concern? Will it need to be liquidated? Talking through these issues is an important part of planning. If you have questions about estate planning or would like to setup an appointment, call me at (925) 420-4111 or visit my website at www.edwardyoungerlaw. com .

“ A lot of important, yet largely forgotten, events took place on Marsh’s rancho, and we’re excited to help bring that history to life.

Rick Lemyre, executive director, John Marsh Historic Trust executive director of the trust. “Rancho Los Meganos was the first terminus of the historic California Trail when the BidwellBartleson party crossed the Sierras in 1841 on its way to Marsh’s rancho, and he played an important role in California becoming a state.” Visitors will also get a rare look inside Marsh’s mansion, which is currently being stabilized in preparation for restoration. They will also be able to view a 7,000-yearold archaeological site located next to it. State park interpreters and trust representatives will be present to talk about the plans for park, the Stone House and the ongoing effort to build an interpretive center to host fourth-grade field trips and other activities. Heritage Day will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 20. The address of the park is 21789 Marsh Creek Road, in Brentwood. The hikes will step off at 9 a.m. with a suggested donation of $10. Tickets are available at https://goo.gl/dcWZji. Guests are reminded to wear long pants and closed-toe shoes, as the site is still a working cattle ranch, just as it was in Marsh’s time.

ECCFPD correcting issues

Editor: Other elected officials are not responsible for resolving ECCFPD’s funding crisis – ECCFPD must lead this effort, and every step taken by Chief Helmick since February 2017 has moved ECCFPD toward that goal. From 2010 until 2017, ECCFPD was run with the chief and one assistant as an administrative staff. I regret my part in perpetuating this error. There weren’t enough hours in the day. Work on operational issues and creating a unified ECCFPD from three predecessor districts and separating from the county was proceeding slowly. Most other issues were not addressed. When Chief Helmick took office, ECCFPD could not support a fourth station even if funded. Over six years, 40 people had left; none in ECCFPD had 6 to10 years’ experience. Anticipated departures would leave ECCFPD unable to reliably support a third station. There was a shortage of engineers to drive fire apparatus. Deferred maintenance had taken a major toll. The chief began by establishing succession plans and building candidate pools for promotion; addressing employee retention; increasing staff and line personnel involvement in administration; and greatly improving communication with the public and other governmental agencies. Operational policies were altered to reflect resource realities and enhance firefighter safety. Next came expanding administrative staff. ECCFPD added an administrative assistant, an administrative battalion chief and a business manager. These additions made a marked difference – financial audits are finally current, the actuarial study of our PERB program is complete, capital improvement and equipment replacement reserve studies are well along, and markedly improved information is available on

the district website, including financial data. Bookkeeping is being thoroughly reviewed to improve accuracy and comprehensibility. ECCFPD is improving relations with other levels of government. Participation in the CSDA and FDAC provides valuable training, information and contacts for both board and staff. ECCFPD has an active program of advocacy at the state and federal levels with our legislative consultant. ECCFPD and its problems are far better known in Sacramento. If it becomes time to seek legislation, we are ready. Our legislative consultant helped ECCFPD to obtain grants for equipment upgrades and replacement. Effective Nov. 1, ConFire will no longer provide plan review and inspection services to ECCFPD. ECCFPD is actively preparing to contract with outside firms until it has set up its own division. Recruitment for a fire marshal to lead the effort is underway. Eventually, this division will be fully supported by plan review and inspection fees. Finally, ECCFPD must increase the number of stations and firefighters. We have a master plan from the 2016 CityGate Study. Work has been proceeding on the strategic plan for several months. Plan drafting is underway, and future public meetings and board retreats are scheduled. The plan will be ready for adoption in January. Summarizing, there has been intense activity for 20 months. ECCFPD will become a district operating as a unified entity rather than a collection of practices left over from three predecessor districts. ECCFPD is finally prepared to work toward adding stations and firefighters and deserve public and other government confidence. Steven Smith ECCFPD board member

It takes a village

Editor: I believe I speak for every nonprofit organization that puts events together when I say, “It truly takes a village.” I have been part of many organizations for the last 30 years, and now, with the Discovery Bay Community Foundation. Our primary mission is to build and strengthen our community by bringing people and other organizations together to make a difference. One of our biggest events is the Discovery Bay triathlon that happens every April. It takes more than 75 volunteers to make this run like a welloiled machine so all 300 triathletes have a fun and safe event. We have five key volunteer race directors with different responsibilities and roles, who oversee many different

facets of this event. We need 40 volunteers just on the bike route; 25 volunteers in and around the marina, including registration, transition area and levee; and 10 with our Pacific Coast Water Rescue group, which monitors the swimmers coming and going and provides aid on land if needed. We also need to acknowledge the many sponsors and donors who provide valuable income to help defer expenses to make sure we can help provide assistance and funding for the many community needs and for our schools. We had our Inaugural Delta Dash event on Sept. 22, where we had 16 sponsors and more than 40 volunteers for this one mile, 5K and 10K event, along with our SUP4Fun event (Stand Up Paddleboards), making sure the 360 participants had a fun and safe event. Representatives from our four local schools – Discovery Bay Elementary, Timber Point Elementary, All God’s Children and Excelsior Middle School – were key to putting this event on. Julie Healy from Under The Sun Events, who was signed on to do the timing for these two events, took on a bigger role and helped with awards, shirts and much more, giving back to her community. Additionally, we just had our inaugural Discovery Bay Big Bass Fishing Tournament last weekend and needed lots of help making sure it went off well, and it was a great success. In fact, it was so well received, several participants asked that we have this event twice a year We also give CPR classes to our teachers and community service representatives, along with hazardous materials training for those who need to become first responders here in Discovery Bay, just to name a very few things we do. We cannot provide any of this great outreach without the many volunteers, sponsors and donors, not to mention the hundreds of hours devoted by many to make our communities a better place. So, to those who have stepped up and continue to step up wherever you live and whatever you do – and you know who you are – we truly thank you. It does take a village and you are the unsung heroes.

Deer Valley downs Heritage for first league win by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer

The Deer Valley football team’s players, coaches and fans took a collective sigh of relief about five years in the making after the Wolverines defeated Heritage 50-8 last week. The victory was Deer Valley’s first against a Bay Valley Athletic League (BVAL) opponent since 2013, and the first for head coach Robert Hubbard. “We have been so tired of hearing about it over and over and over – that we hadn’t had a league win – so to finally get a league win is great,” said Hubbard. The trio made up of running backs Patrick Robinson (213 yards on 16 carries) and Willie Williams (103 yards on three carries) and quarterback Joshua Scott (105 yards rushing on 13 attempts) scored all seven touchdowns in the game. The Wolverines (4-4, 1-2 in league play) savored their first BVAL victory since a 31-20 win over Heritage in November 2013. “It’s been a journey,” said Robinson, a three-year varsity player. “I’m happy it finally happened. I want more. I am not satisfied.”

Heritage’s Greg Filardo wraps up Deer Valley’s James Terrell Knaules as Heritage fell to Deer Valley 50-8 last week. The win was Deer Valley’s first league victory since 2013. Deer Valley left little to chance in the contest, building a 28-0 halftime lead that ballooned to 42-0 midway through the third quarter before Heritage’s James Williams

pulled in an 11-yard catch to put Heritage (1-7, 0-3) on the board early in the fourth quarter. Heritage had punted four times and

turned the ball over on downs once in its five previous possessions. “They are working hard,” said Heritage head coach Don Sanders. “They are just a really good bunch of kids. We did some good things tonight, but we didn’t execute enough to make a difference. It’s one of those things where it’s a learning process. We’ll be working at it.” The Wolverines’ win reverberated around Heritage’s home field. Thunderous applause erupted from Deer Valley’s postgame huddle and Hubbard could be seen dodging his players’ multiple attempts to douse him with water. “We had some close games, but we couldn’t pull them out,” Hubbard said, only his legs wet from the team’s water celebration. “We finally pulled one out.” Deer Valley dominated almost from the opening kick. Scott took control of the game early, scoring on 5- and 20-yard runs to vault Deer Valley to a 14-0 lead early in the second quarter. As it turned out, the Wolverines were just warming up. see Football page 23

Heritage girls’ golf team wins sixth straight Bay Valley Athletic League championship by Michael Dixon Corespondent

While the Bay Valley Athletic League girls’ golf season won’t officially end until Monday’s league championship (BVAL) tournament, the league title has already been decided. And for the sixth straight year, the championship belongs to Heritage, who wrapped the title up with a perfect 10-0 record in regular-season play. At the top of the Patriots’ lineup are sophomore Aiyanna Christi Co and senior Sarah Lee, who have a nine-hole scoring average of 40.5 and 41.5, respectively, on the season. In addition to a strong top of the lineup, Heritage fields easily the deepest team in the league with 21 players. By contrast, other teams in the league have had a hard time fielding a lineup of six. “We are very lucky as coaches to be surrounded by a lot of great girls who come out and try really hard every day,” assistant coach Dan Swan said. “On top of the depth and all that other good stuff, we are very fortunate. This is my fourth year, and we’ve had 20-plus players each year. Even the ones that didn’t play as much seemed to have fun and seem really committed to getting better and coming back.” The depth of the team comes in both

quantity and quality. The Patriots routinely field a lineup with six players capable of shooting in the 40s or better. That gives Heritage a sizable edge over any team in the league. Even better for the Patriots is that the depth of the team is represented with a great deal of youth. In addition to having a sophomore as the team’s No. 1 player, Heritage has a strong group of freshmen that frequently play in matches. “We have a tremendous crop of freshmen,” head coach Mark Tinder said. “We have six that can really play. We are very lucky and very fortunate. Coach Swan and I believe that this will propel us in the near future.” Four of those freshmen – Sophia Dayton, Kendall Overgaard, Geraldine Critica and Grace Allen – will be in the lineup with Christi Co and Lee at the BVAL Tournament. Regardless of what happens at the league tournament, Heritage has a bye into the North Coast Section championships Oct. 29 at Tilden Park. From there, only the topthree teams and the four lowest scoring individuals not on those teams will advance. “At NCS, I always think that it’s rarified air,” Tinder said. “Our best shot will be for an individual to advance. “It could be Aiyanna. She has the game, the power game. She’s able to score well. She has a chance. But again, she

It’s tough competition.” Something else Tinder credits for the success of his team is the courses in the area. With many of the areas closing, courses are taking on more and more teams. “All of the teams in our league are ap-

preciative to the golf courses,” Tinder said. “Deer Ridge hosts Freedom and our very large team. Lone Tree hosts three teams. The golf courses are working with the coaches to expand the game of golf, especially for the girls.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net

Robinson seized control of the Wolverines’ scoring barrage, tacking on back-toback 44- and 78-yard touchdown runs in the second quarter. Robinson’s 25-yard touchdown catch and Williams’ 21- and 80-yard touchdown runs finished off Deer Valley’s offensive explosion. “We have been putting in hard work, and it finally paid off,” said Scott. Liberty 52, Antioch 0 The visiting Lions (8-0, 3-0) mauled the Panthers (6-2, 1-2) 52-0 to remain unde-

Lions wide receiver Sione Vaki pitched in with three catches for 45 yards and two touchdowns, and added another score on a kick return. Liberty quarterback Jay Butterfield completed 6 of 9 passes for 123 yards and three touchdowns. Antioch quarterback Willem Karnthong completed just two of 12 passes for 4 yards and was held to 6 yards rushing on five attempts.

After two National Premier League (NPL) matches that ended in a draw, The West Coast Wildkatz  05 were ready to break the streak as they met San Jose Earthquakes Pre-DA 05 for their fourth NPL match in early October. From the first whistle, West Coast dominated play. Despite keeping the ball on the Earthquakes half of the pitch and firing shots at the goal for majority of the first half, the  Wildkatz could not find the net.   Jayden Morton finally broke the seal when she stripped the ball and banged it over the keeper into the upper corner from 30 yards out, giving

are: we are characters already. The film is also filmed in the Bay Area, so it kind of goes hand-in-hand.” Acasio sported a complete Venom costume in his front-row Black Hole seat and was flanked by friends and family in Venom T-shirts and surgical masks as part of the act. Acasio and Sony officials also handed out about 50 free T-shirts and masks to Black Hole fans. Television cameras zeroed in on the Gorilla-turned-alien a handful of times during the Raiders’ 45-42 win, and Venom commercials were featured on the Fox telecast. “A lot of people were asking, ‘Where is Gorilla?’” said Acasio. “But a lot of people who were Marvel fans recognized it right away.” The alien act transported Acasio and his wife, Marilyn (Jungle Jane in the Black Hole), to a whole new world. After an all-expenses-paid flight to Southern California the day after the game, the Brentwood couple, adorned in a snazzy red suit and flashy red dress, were driven from their hotel to the foot of the red carpet, where they entered the premiere along-

side the movie’s stars and other celebrities. Marilyn said a flood of entertainment news organizations were present, cameras clicking and lights flashing, as movie stars such as Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams, KISS band member Gene Simmons and model Taylor Hill posed en route to the theater entrance. “The camera guys are like, ‘Turn your shoulder to the right, can you look here to the left?’” Marilyn said. Acasio, meanwhile, was star-struck. “I was on the red carpet, which was actually black, and (photographers) were taking pictures and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was standing right there, Gene Simmons from KISS was right there, all these actors, all these executives,” Acasio said. “It hit me – I got goosebumps – ‘I’m right here on the red carpet, and I’m a nobody.’” The East County duo sat in the same theater row as actress Jenny Slate and behind Sony executives before attending an after-party with free high-end food-truck cuisine, alcohol from an ice bar and the movie’s stars and props right before their eyes. The Brentwood couple might have been outsiders, but nobody could tell. “(Acasio) was asked if he was a fa-

tasks including: developing by July 1 a plan for the removal of abandoned commercial vessels in the Delta; prioritizing the removal of these vessels according to the risk that each boat represents to the surrounding environment and to the health and safety of the public; and implementing the plan when funds are made available to the SLC. “The Delta is a vibrant ecosystem that serves as a source of water for millions of Californians, supports a world-class agricultural industry and is a hub for businesses and recreational activities,” said Frazier. “Commercial vessels left to rot not only impair navigation in Delta waterways, they pose a significant environmental threat as toxic substances such as asbestos, lead-based paints, gasoline, diesel fuel and antifreeze leach into the Delta.” Abandoned recreational and commercial vessels have long been a problem throughout the five-county Delta region including Contra Costa, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Solano and Yolo counties. Last year the Office of Spill Prevention and Response (OSPR) undertook an effort to quantify the scale of that problem. “We did a survey of abandoned and derelict vessels in the Delta in the summer of 2017 – mostly an aerial survey,” said Steve Hampton, Ph.D., assistant deputy administrator with OSPR. “We counted all of the abandoned commercial and recreational vessels. And then we estimated remov-

mous boxer, if he was an actor and what films he was in,” said Marilyn. “He was approached by a couple different people.” The Raider superfans-turned-promotional characters emerged with a handful of selfies with the film’s stars, including Hardy, Williams and Slate. “Meeting the people, the atmosphere, the food, the cocktails, the music, the sweets – I was overwhelmed,” said Acasio. “You are treated first-class. People would walk around with food, like shrimp, on a silver platter.” The Acasios’ Hollywood journey starts with the famed gorilla suit that missed the trip but led to Acasio’s rise to stardom. Purchased on a whim for $19 at a garage sale in 1995, the costume – and more importantly, the man inside it – has forged a legendary path. The gorilla – who doesn’t speak in costume but plays the part – ventured into the Black Hole a few years after appearing in Oakland-Alameda Coliseum seats by the tunnel and in a corner. Around 2004, he was anointed the Black Hole’s official mascot, and his popularity and fame have since reached KingKong proportions. The gorilla’s honors include being

al costs. We could only do a crude estimate. We didn’t have the time or available expertise to do a vessel-by-vessel estimate. Our estimate was $600,000 per (commercial) vessel.” The survey identified 186 abandoned recreational vessels and 51 abandoned commercial vessels in Delta waters. OSPR stated that, on average, two commercial vessels are abandoned in the area every year. The total estimated cost to remove the commercial vessels is approximately $31 million, and none of the agencies involved with policing the Delta have the funding to take on this task. “There are a lot of cost factors to consider,” said Hampton. “Generally a vessel that’s under 40 feet can be put on a trailer and taken to the landfill. Once the vessel sinks or once the vessel is over 40 feet, it needs to be disassembled to get it out. You start adding zeros (to the cost), lots of zeros.” While AB 2441 will result in a plan, it will not provide the funding to remove abandoned commercial boats. The bill did initially have a funding component, but it was removed before the final vote. “I wanted to make sure we could get a cost first – have State Lands develop a plan to remove these vessels – then have the plan funded through the budget process,” said Frazier. The Division of Boating and Waterways offers recreational boaters several options once a boat has reached the

He’s the only one who can move the way he does, he’s the only one who can interact with the people the way he does and spread the love the way he does. The way Mark is under the suit radiates out.” For his part, Acasio said he’s blessed and expects nothing in return. “Gorilla Rilla spreads the love,” he said. “That is what it’s about: making memories, bringing fans together.” Gorilla plans to continue appearing at Raiders games when the team moves to Las Vegas.

end of its useful life. The Vessel Turn-In Program allows an owner to surrender a recreational boat to DBW at no cost while the Abandoned Watercraft Abatement Fund (AWAF) provides grants to agencies like the Office of the Sheriff who are tasked with removing abandoned boats. In 2016, Frazier worked with the California Sheriffs’ Association to introduce AB 2092. It attempted to make AWAF money available for the removal of commercial vessels. But stiff resistance led by the Recreational Boaters of California – who argued that the cost of removing only a few commercial vessels could wipe out the fund – led to the bill stalling, and it never moved forward. Until a funded plan to deal with abandoned commercial vessels can be implemented, problems they bring will continue to multiply. “If the boats are not maintained, they will sink,” said Doug Powell who retired from the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff marine patrol unit. “It’s just a matter of time.” For more information, visit the Division of Boating and Waterways at www.dbw.ca.gov, the State Lands Commission www.slc.ca.gov, Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff http://www.cocosheriff.org or Assemblymember Jim Frazier https://a11.asmdc.org.
