THIS WEEK

Veterans to be venerated

Photos by Richard Wisdom

Members of Liberty High School choral groups past and present gathered to sing “What Would I Do Without My Music,” the traditional last song the groups sing together each year. Above right, friends came to the podium in groups, leaning on each other as they remembered Kayla Shepard, who died last week at 19.

East County will observe Veterans Day with a blend of spirited celebration and solemn remembrance.

Community mourns a song silenced Insectoid infestation by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

Hundreds gathered Tuesday to say goodbye to Kayla Shepard, 2008 Liberty graduate and Jenny Lind Award-winning vocalist, who was killed in an automobile accident near Bakersfield last week. She had celebrated her 19th birthday just days before. Dozens of friends and family addressed the assembly, tearfully recalling moments shared with Shepard. Some spoke of being best friends, while others said they knew her only in passing, but for most of their lives

growing up. A common denominator ran through most of the stories: music. “Kayla and music went hand in hand,” said her father, Bob Shepard. It was a message, along with her easy-going manner and steadfast devotion to her friends, that was driven home over and over again, as speakers recalled My Space and Facebook posts they felt summed up their friend. “Kayla, you’re perfect. I love you” … “You never gave up on me, even when you probably should have” … “She was always the first one to make me laugh about something I was crying about” … “I never felt more loved

by anyone” … “I know how much you loved (being in the choral group) DIVA. We were awesome” … “I remember our trip to China, singing the wrong songs in the Forbidden City” … “I can’t think of any better way to keep loving you than to keep singing” … “There’s nothing I want more than to be able to give you just one more hug” … “Our voices together completed my soul” … “There’s no doubt in my mind that she would have owned San Francisco” … “When she walked into a room, the walls smiled” and “Kayla added

Staff Writer

An effort to recall Mayor Bob Taylor and city councilmen Chris Becnel and Bob Brockman hit its second snag last week when legal paperwork was found to contain too few valid signatures. Resident Kathy Fredenberg originally served papers to the trio of councilmen during the public comment period before the Oct. 13 council meeting. Her notice of intent accused them of “ruinous leadership,” “incompetent management” and “proceeding in direct violation of a grant deed regarding the use of park land” among other complaints. During the development of the civic center project, Fredenberg maintained that a portion of City Park would be paved over in violation of a deed granted the city in 1888, which said it was to remain a park forever. Planners have maintained that although some of the park will be used for

buildings, relocating the library – built on park land decades ago – plus a plaza square and a covered History Walk will mean there will be more room for park activities upon the project’s completion than there is now. In serving the papers, however, Brockman was given Taylor’s documents and vice versa. Saying “follow-up paperwork” had gone awry, Fredenberg served all three again during public comments at the Oct. 27 council meeting. The second set of papers, however, did not contain enough valid signatures, according to the Contra Costa County Clerk Recorder’s office. Of the 29 signatures on Taylor’s papers, only 18 were valid. For Becnel, 24 signatures yielded only 16 that were valid; for Brockman, it was 17 valid signatures out of 26. Each petition needed a minimum of 20 valid signatures for the effort to move forward. Fredenberg could not be reached for comment on whether a third attempt would be made.

Recall effort sputters Groundbreaking set for Tuesday by Rick Lemyre

In what sounds like a sci-fi scenario, clusters of large cockroaches are invading local neighborhoods.

The City of Brentwood will formally break ground on its new civic center on Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 10 a.m. in City Park on Oak Street between Third and Second streets. Construction fencing and an office trailer were moved into City Park last week shortly after the City Council gave the final go-ahead for the $28.6 million construction project. The civic center will include a new city hall, community center, an enlarged library and redesigned City Park. Last week the council decided to build a parking structure that had been taken out of the project’s first phase. It was added back in to the first phase after bids on the rest of the project came in 36 percent below estimates, saving $16.4 million in construction costs. Estimates of the cost for the garage have yet to be determined, but it’s expected to be less than $11 million. Next Tuesday, Mayor Bob Taylor is scheduled to make a few remarks, followed by the groundbreaking ceremony and light refreshments.

Heritage turned up the heat on its gridiron grill and burned Antioch to a crisp.

Ally comes home to makeover surprise by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

There’s a new saying around the Jenkins house these days: As Ally goes, so do we. “When Ally’s up we’re all up, and when she’s down, so are we,” said Vickee Jenkins of her daughter Ally, 15, who is recuperating from double-lung transplant surgery. “We’re literally just taking it hour by hour; it’s our new normal.” Last weekend the Oakley family’s new normal got a bump up when they brought Ally home following a nearly four-month stay at UCSF Medical Center, where she was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension in July. The incurable condition, which hinders the flow of blood from the heart to the lungs, required a double lung transplant, which she received from a donor in August. And when the Freedom High School freshman arrived home, she was greeted not only by friends and family, but by another present – this one straight out of an episode of “Extreme Home Makeover.” Thanks to the efforts of a generous community, the Jenkins home had been refurbished from top to bottom, including a new roof and landscaped yard, fresh paint inside and out, as well as new appliances, countertops, bathrooms, windows and doors, all donated by volunteers who had given of their time, supplies and la-

It’s very difficult to put into words. We’re just so grateful.” And as for Ally, she’s just happy to be home, especially now that her new room

Going for walks, sleeping in my bed. I like it a lot.” The plot for the home makeover was hatched months ago, following a conver-

sation between Vickee and a friend regarding Ally’s upcoming surgery. “It was right after we had finished meeting with the transplant doctors where they were telling us about what to expect, and they were going down a list of things that Ally couldn’t tolerate and one of those things was mold,” said Vickee. “And I started freaking out because I had a guest bathroom with a lot of mold. So later I called a friend of mine whose husband is in the business, and asked if he could give us a quote on what it would take to fix the mold, and it snowballed from there.” More like an avalanche. Dozens of volunteers with myriad talents and connections came in and out of the house over the course of the next few months, making the improvements and fine-tuning the details right up until the day the family came home. “Oakley’s a little community but they all came together on this,” said Jim D’Amico, owner of Black Bear Diner and one of the contributors to the Jenkins makeover project. “There were so many people involved I couldn’t possibly name them all, but everyone did their part.” And for now, the Jenkinses are doing their part, working on relaxing and being together.

Brentwood residents bugged by cockroaches by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Last Halloween Elaine Furtado scattered peanut shells on the sidewalk of her home near Creekside Park to frighten trick-or-treaters as they approached her front door. This year the Brentwood resident didn’t need the peanuts, because something even creepier was carpeting the pavement – cockroaches. “It’s a crunch, crunch, crunch sound. I feel like I’m in a science fiction movie,” said Furtado of the dozens of roaches she’s found on her property and at the nearby Creekside Park. “I have also been finding them in my hall bathroom coming out of the drain. I would definitely call it an epidemic.” It seems that oriental cockroaches (some an inch and a half long) have staked a claim to neighborhoods around the Creekside development area, infiltrating kitchen sinks, bathroom shower drains and patios; turning casual neighborhood conversation away from backyard barbecues and toward homemade bug bombs and critter traps. “This was never a problem until recently,” said Furtado, who has lived in her neighborhood for more than 15 years. “We’re not talking just a few – there are a lot. One neighbor told me he skims as many as 30 at a time out of his pool. It’s disgusting.” Sandi Johnson agrees. Johnson, who

Oriental cockroaches such as this are infiltrating homes in parts of Brentwood. They typically live in soil, and aren’t as nasty as other roaches often found in cities; nonetheless, residents don’t care to have them around. lives just one street over from Furtado, said she has never seen such an infestation of cockroaches in her neighborhood: “I’ve lived here for 15 years and we have never, ever had cockroaches like this. I came out here to my patio one day, and saw literally dozens of them upside down, legs kicking in the air, begging to be turned over.” Johnson didn’t turn over the flailing bugs, but she did call an exterminator. “The spraying has definitely helped, but I’m still seeing some here and there,” said Johnson, who has been spraying her

yard once a month since June. “But they (exterminators) did say they would eventually start to diminish. I hope it’s soon; they are dirty and disgusting and filthy.” Jannine Hemphill feels the same way and said that in the 10 years she has lived in Brentwood she never saw roaches around her house, but now she can’t keep them away: “At first I thought (the roaches) were around because I had a neighbor who neglected their home and yard and that we were the unlucky recipients of their neglect. But every night,

every morning, I find them on my front porch, backyard, on my driveway. I have been asking my exterminator to beef up the spraying, but it still hasn’t worked. It’s embarrassing – especially when you know there has to be something the city can do to mitigate this issue.” Furtado thought so too, and recently called the City of Brentwood to find out if the city might have operated a pest program in the past and then stopped it, which might account for the increased numbers. Barry Margesson, facilities and landscape supervisor for the Brentwood Parks Department, said he is unaware of any city-sponsored pesticide programs, but that he imagined if there were a true cockroach problem, the city would look into it. “As far as I know, we don’t have any spray program (for cockroaches),” said Margesson, who added that he left a similar message with a resident who recently called about the cockroaches. “The parks department doesn’t spray, but if it’s really a problem, I would think the city would look into it.” Rob Wellington, owner of Discovery Pest Control, said he’s not surprised at the tenacity or numbers of the cockroaches: “It’s interesting the way bugs work. Some years there are lots of them and others (years) there aren’t. But they’re very comsee Bugged page 14A

TALK ABOUT TOWN alks have begun about what Mayor Bob Taylor will do to ramp up his promise once his The Mayor Is A Turkey fundraiser breaks through the 300 mark. Taylor has been collecting $8 donations for about three weeks now, and his stated goal of 300 is about to be reached – he’s at 273 as of press time. Once he makes his goal, he’ll be obligated to wear a turkey suit at the Christmas Basket distribution on Dec. 19. The once-modest goal doesn’t actually cover the full 500-turkey need for that program, though, so hizzoner is going to keep plugging away and, with the help of the good people of Brentwood (who really want to see him in that suit) he might just get ’em all. If you have a suggestion for what the added payoff ought to be, call 925-634-1441 and ask for Rick. If you just want to donate a bird to someone who can sure use it, send your $8-per-turkey donation to the Brentwood Regional Community Chest, P.O. Box 845, Brentwood 94513.

Generations captures special moments by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Pictures are worth more than a thousand words to Jennifer Fink. To her, a photograph is more like a chapter, a story frozen in time. Fink, owner of Generations Photography, has gained a reputation as the go-to gal for high school senior portraits, capturing all the emotions of excitement and hope in a single shot. Rather than snapping the standard cap and gown pose, Fink likes to incorporate elements that illustrate who her subjects are - whether it’s a basketball for an athlete, an instrument for a musician or a skateboard for the kid at heart - to infuse personality into each portrait. “My specialties are newborns and seniors, but I like the seniors best - they don’t pee on your backgrounds,” Fink said with a laugh. “They’re actually kind of similar, though. Babies are new to this world and represent all that can be. It’s the same way for seniors. This is their first huge milestone and they embody all that promise and hope. They’re not kids anymore but they’re not quite adults. It’s an exciting time, and I try to capture that moment so that they can keep it with them throughout their lives.” While Fink is a certified professional photographer with credentials for wedding, family and general portraits, she is most known for her graduation photos, and that’s fine by her. However, she wishes more families would take the time to get portraits taken, since most families often put it off year after year. “I always hear people say ‘I wish I’d done that’ - taken more baby portraits or family pictures - but you can’t go back and recreate those moments. You can’t go back in time and repeat that milestone. Life is too short. You need to do it now. Don’t put it off until it’s too late and those precious moments are gone.

Photo by Samie Hartley

Jennifer Fink, owner of Generations Photography, strikes a pose at her studio in Brentwood. “Photographs are the way we record our history. Most people don’t write about the things that happened to them. They take pictures to remember those moments. I like to think of photographs as chapters in a book. What does this photograph say about your story? How does this photograph show who you are in this moment?” Before each photo shoot, Fink meets with her clients at her home studio in Brentwood. During the consultation, she chats with her potential subjects to get a sense of their person-

ality and what they’d like to get out of their experience. They talk about wardrobe choices and locations to create a road map for the day of the shoot. “It’s a brainstorming session. Once I get beneath the surface and have a better idea of who they are, that’s when I start getting ideas. We’ll talk it out, but there’s never a set plan. It’s all about capturing those spontaneous moments. I’ll crawl through the weeds if it means getting the right shot. It all depends on the moment.” Fink, who has 18 years of professional experience, is mostly a self-taught photographer. She learned the basics from her father at the family studio before striking out on her own. Photography was always a hobby, but the more she took pictures, the more she realized photography was the creative outlook she’d been looking for. “I’ve always liked taking pictures,” Fink said. “After I had my daughter, I started trying to find more creative ways to take her picture. I took so many pictures I killed a point-and-shoot camera by the time she was a year old. It just died of exhaustion. No wonder she doesn’t want me to take her picture anymore.” Fink’s daughter Laura is following in Mom’s creative footsteps, pursuing a major in video game design at the Academy of Art Institute. Fink said she’s learned even more about taking graduation photos after going through the process herself. When Laura received her diploma from Heritage High School in June, her mother got a deeper appreciation of what students - as well as their families - want from graduation photos. “My job is to give back an artistic piece of themselves - an artistic memory of who they were then. I try to make it timeless so that it will always look good and you don’t look back on it and think ‘well, that’s clearly something from 2009 or 2008.’ I want it to be something they’ll treasure, an heirloom that will stay within the family and be passed on for generations.” For more information about Generations Photography, visit www.generationsbyjennifer.com or call 925-516-3840.

Home of the Month HOMEBUYER CREDIT UPDATE Earlier this year, two homebuyer credits were put into place. One was up to $10K to buy a brand-new home. That one was from the State of California and was limited to funds available. They ran out of money a while ago, so that one is gone. I’ve heard some discussion that they’d like to bring it back, but I haven’t heard of any proposed legislation that is gaining any traction to make that official. If you hadn’t heard, California is quite severely budget-challenged at the moment, so I don’t expect a California credit to come back anytime soon. The other credit was a Federal credit, and that was a credit of up to $8,000 for firsttime buyers who bought homes and closed before November 30, 2009. That one has been incredibly popular, and many argue that that is one of the big reasons for the recent increase in pending home sales. That one is due to expire next month. I HAVE heard a lot of talk about trying to extend that credit. In fact, there is legislation working its way through Congress right now to do just that.

I did get several calls and emails last week from people who had heard that the extension passed, but that wasn’t quite right. There are at least 5 bills being debated in Congress right now. All contain some variation of extending the deadline for the credit, along with making several changes to it. Some propose enlarging the program to those that are not first-time buyers, others propose enlarging the credit to $15,000. Some extend it only a short while, and the amount of the credit drops quickly after January until it gets to zero around the middle of next year. Bottom line is that it looks like Congress is seriously considering extending the credit, and my bet is we will see some kind of extension approved. Just not sure exactly what it will look like yet.

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,” stated 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 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 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.

Eyes to the skies When the festivities begin this year at the East County Veterans Day Parade in downtown Antioch, the guests of honor – and grand marshals of the event – will have a view of the parade like no other – high above the procession aboard a restored Vietnamera Huey assault helicopter. Officials are spreading the word so locals won’t be surprised by the low-flying craft, although the chopper is just one of the day’s many highlights. There will be more than 30 entries in the parade, including civilian and military vehicles, the Antioch and Deer Valley high school marching bands, veteran motorcycle groups, current and antique military vehicles and community organizations. The Blue Star Singers (all women veterans) will perform as well. The second annual event will boast three grand marshals, including Bataan Death March survivor Vincent Silva, 91; Richard Lundin, 72, a major general in the Northern California Army Reserve who served in three wars and under 11 presidents; and World War II veteran Leo Fontana. “I think it’s important that we honor all

If it’s anything like last year, we are expecting a tremendous turnout.” The parade will begin at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 at the Antioch Lumber Company on Second Street and end with a special wreath-laying ceremony at the marina. A free barbecue will follow at the VFW Hall, 815 Fulton Shipyard Road.

Chelsa Thorne and her mother Nanette view pictures of Kayla Shepard following a memorial service for her Tuesday.

Song from page 1A value, and that’s a blessing.” Shepard was killed Oct. 28 as she and two friends returned to their San Francisco homes following a concert in Las Vegas by a band in which some of Kayla’s friends are members. The driver of the Toyota Corolla in which Kayla was a passenger pulled out to pass another car on Highway 46 near Bakersfield. Realizing he did not have enough room to pass, he returned to his own lane, but over-corrected and lost control, sending the car back into oncoming traffic, where it collided headon with a Dodge Ram pick-up. The driver of the Toyota, Steven Dub, 19, and another passenger Hilary-Kendall Fix, 19, were also killed. The driver of the pick-up, 46-year-old Richard Picanso, was hospitalized with moderate injuries. A Kayla Shepard Memorial Fund has been set up at East Contra Costa Bank (Bank of Ag) on First Street in Brentwood. Donations may be made at any ECC Bank. Also, a memorial table has been set up at His & Hers Formal Wear, 625 First St. in Brentwood. Donations of flowers, cards or checks may be dropped off there for delivery to the family. A meal calendar is also being set up; e-mail annette.beckstrand@comcast.net to participate.

So once we hit those cooler temperatures they’ll disappear. They’re not poisonous, but they do typically live in sewers, so yes, they are dirty.” In the meantime, suggested Wellington, homeowners can hire a company to come in and spray every month or two, or they can do it themselves. Either way, because of the origin and stamina of the oriental variety, there is little residents can do to prevent the cockroaches from invading their neighborhoods. “Unfortunately, if it were an American or German cockroach, I’d say clean out your kitchen,” said Wellington. “But with these guys, they are originating underneath your home, in the sewers, and there isn’t really a whole lot a homeowner can do. The most effective way to eradicate the roaches is with a barrier insecticide, which is a pesticide that establishes a barrier between your home and the bugs. I have them (cockroaches) at my home and

I have to spray every other month.” For Hemphill’s part, she just wishes she didn’t need to deal with the issue at all. “I think there’s a definite stigma associated with having roaches in and around your home,” she said. “Most people don’t want that stigma. I know for certain I don’t … it just makes me ill.”

Gun owners, shows feel under assault by Dave Roberts Staff Writer Gun owners are increasingly feeling like they have a giant target on their back as they come under fire by Democratic legislators who have been banning gun shows and Internet sales of ammunition on top of previous gun-control restrictions such as background checks and a 10-day waiting period for gun purchases. Ironically, the more that legislative shots are aimed at gun owners, the better it is for the gun business. Attendance at gun shows and sales of guns and ammunition are up in the past year since the election of President Barack Obama and the Democratic control of both houses of Congress, according to Richard Smith, promoter of the Code of the West Gun Show, which was held at the Antioch fairgrounds last weekend. “The same thing happened back in the Clinton era,� said Smith. “We had a big push on gun ownership and ammunition ownership. Because they are afraid that that side of the political pendulum is going to swing and take away their rights. So they come out and buy more guns, more ammo, more whatever. Smith & Wesson gun sales are up 84 percent in the last year.� Smith, who has been putting on gun shows throughout Northern California for nearly two decades (twice a year

in Antioch), had his show banned from the Santa Rosa fairgrounds 10 years ago. A lawsuit has been filed by a gun show promoter against Alameda County for banning gun shows from that county’s fairgrounds. The state legislature recently tried to ban gun shows from the Cow Palace, but the bill was vetoed by Gov. Schwarzenegger. Outside of the Antioch gun show, fliers were being passed out urging attendees to write a letter to state legislators to overturn recently passed legislation that would require ammunition buyers’ thumbprints, names and addresses to be sent to the California Department of Justice beginning in February of 2011, in effect banning online sales of ammo to Californians. Dennis Johnston, owner of Red Line Ballistics, which supplies pistol ammunition to sportings goods stores and firing ranges, said sales have been “exceptional� thanks to the ascendancy of the Democrats in Washington, D.C. a year ago. “People are running scared,� he said. “They are afraid there’s going to be nonavailability issues. So it’s kind of panic buying at this time. It went into hyperdrive when the governor signed the ammo bill requiring the thumbprints in February, 2011 for people buying ammo. People are paranoid about government intrusion. I see Gun page 22A

Fiddling stops before district burns “Nero fiddled while Rome burned,” the saying goes. Although there weren’t actually any fiddles in AD 64, there’s been too much fiddling in far East County while the issue of how to provide adequate fire protection has burned and burned and burned. Two years ago Contra Costa County, along with the cities of Brentwood and Oakley, agreed to form a new governing for the East Contra CosDITORIAL board ta Fire Protection District (ECCFPD). The local, nine-member board would replace the five county supervisors who have been calling the shots in the district since its formation seven years ago. Unfortunately, Oakley City Council members pulled out of the plan a year and a half ago due to a dispute with county officials over land transfers that had nothing to do with fire protection. With the plan for the new board shot down in flames, Oakley and Brentwood officials sought to annex into the better-funded Contra Costa Fire Protection District. That district turned thumbs down on the request, however, pointing out that far East County is underfunded for the amount of service required. So, after two years with nothing to show for it, Oakley council members have finally agreed to join with

E

Brentwood and the county in forming the new governing board. It’s hard to say whether any lives or structures that might otherwise have been saved with standardized fire protection were lost in the meantime, but we congratulate local officials for stepping up to the plate to deal with this difficult, but vital, issue. When it is formed early next year, the board – comprised of four members from Brentwood, three from Oakley and two from unincorporated far East County – will need to figure out how to beef up fire protection in this area while not burning too large of a hole in local wallets. ECCFPD has been underfunded because just over half of local property taxes go toward the fire district in comparison with other areas of the county. As a result, the district has been dipping into its reserve fund to the tune of $2 million per year the past couple of years in order to keep a minimum of two firefighters in each of the district’s eight stations, along with three firefighters at the Oakley station and one of the two Brentwood stations. Job 1 will be figuring out how to apply a tourniquet to stop the fiscal hemorrhaging while continuing to provide at least the current level of fire protection in a 250square-mile area containing about 100,000 people. The bigger job will be determining how to beef up fire pro-

could have as easily gone astray and hit any number of children also on their way to school. School uniforms also take pressures off children whose families can’t keep up on the latest and greatest styles. They save parents money, allow for hand-me-downs to younger children and friends, and stop arguments on what is appropriate and not appropriate school apparel. School uniforms will give children a sense of respect for themselves and others. School is about learning, not fashion. Unfortunately, young girls physically mature before they are equipped to handle unwanted advances; school uniforms will make them less desirable to predators. We see how well school uniforms are working at grammar and middle schools; why not high schools where gangs are more prevalent? People who feel the uniforms stifle creativity are shortsighted. If our kids weren’t so obsessed with what others are wearing, they would have more time to be creative in areas that would take them further in life. For those of you who feel the children will be losing their right of choice, well, I say to you: a stray bullet from a gang member takes all their choices in life away, so what is more important to you?

Uniform logic Editor: Soon the Antioch School Board will be sending out a survey to see if parents are agreeable to school uniforms at the high school level. I know many highschool-age children will be opposed as well as some parents, and the reasons will be as varied as the individuals, but ask yourself this: how would you like to make your child safer? We had a high school student brutally beaten because he was mistaken for a gang member because of the clothing he wore. We most recently had another high school student shot as he was entering school because he was identified by a gang as being in a gang. The bullet that shot him

Editor: I am writing in response to several

tection, preferably to the standard of three firefighters on duty around the clock at each station. That could cost an extra $5 million per year, possibly resulting in an annual property tax hike of $200-$250 per residence. Needless to say, it would be a tall order to get far East County residents to agree to increase their taxes by that amount after two years of the Great Recession in which nearly everyone has been forced to cut back on expenses just to get by. It will require creativity, perhaps thinking outside the fire engine box, such as increased privatization of medical and rescue personnel, relocation of fire stations to urban areas, returning to trained volunteers and increasing the number of reserve firefighters while reducing full-time firefighters. It won’t be easy. We believe the initial appointments to the new fire board should be taken from city councils and elected municipal advisory committees to provide some ballot-box weight and responsiveness to the process of charting the district’s course, and that a move to a directly elected fire board should then follow. With the backing of the voters, the board members would be better enabled to make the hard decisions, including the possibility of placing a tax measure on the ballot. The good news is that far East County fire protection is finally on the right track, and local people will soon be driving the train.

news stories and letters to the editor over recent weeks about the temporary storage of rail cars in various parts of Brentwood and Oakley. Although I can sympathize with residents being surprised by rail cars showing up in front of their homes, we must first go back a few years, when our City Council, planners, developers pushed hard to slap together houses wherever they could be built. Our community was drunk on developers’ fees, and many determined that uncontrolled growth was the best for our community in the long run, including homes right up against the Mococo Line. I have heard scores of people assert publicly over the years that they moved to Brentwood for its “small-town, rural, family-oriented community.” At least two of those adjectives could be associated with railroads. Now, some are concerned about the “visual blight” that the rail cars apparently bring, and even our city officials are temporarily concerned about a possible dip in home values in this ephemeral and unpredictable East County real estate market. Rail is one of the most efficient methods of transportation for goods, and it pulls much traffic off our local roads, directly contributing to road safety. Before we criticize UPRR and the Mococo Line for being in East County for many decades, why don’t we first ask why so many homes were recently built right next to the rail lines? Who approved that? I am not writing to criticize the many homeowners who bought homes right

along the Mococo Line, but I am shocked that our City Council and manager would be publicly accusing UPRR of temporarily reducing our bottomed-out home values and forcing upon us this “visual blight.” I think these issues are indicative of a community identity crisis. Some want a small-town atmosphere, but with no evidence of a small-town history. Some want a glitzy urban lifestyle, but with no urban traffic. I see people in oversized glossy vehicles shake their fists at farmers driving their tractors on our small country roads. Let’s get through this vacuous growth spurt and let our community stabilize before we start blaming all our woes on the trains. Spencer Holmes Brentwood

Kamps Propane reaches milestone year by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Kamps Propane in Oakley is just a small piece of the larger puzzle that has been providing propane to California customers for 40 years. Kamps President John Kamps expanded his propane business, which he first opened in Manteca in 1969, with a location in Bethel Island, which he later moved to Oakley before branching out the franchise to Hayward, Sacramento and Placerville. Today there are a total of 10 retail locations in California, but Kamps Propane can be found throughout the western seaboard at resale dispensaries at gas stations and hardware stores. “We’re (Kamps) the last remaining independent propane distributor,” said Kamps Oakley Account Executive Joe Silva. “It’s a very competitive business. All the big dogs are out on the east coast, but we’re holding down the fort. What sets us apart is that you get quality, personal service when you work with Kamps Propane. That’s what people really want, so that’s what we bring to our clients. Plus, it’s important to support local business. The Kamps headquarters are in Manteca, so it all comes back to the Bay Area.”

Silva said most new homes don’t rely on propane, but smaller communities in Bethel Island, Byron and Knightsen are reliant on propane as their source of energy. Propane is used to power more than family barbecue grills. Propane fuels water heaters, clothes dryers, furnaces, space heaters, pool and spa heaters, plus portable stoves. “Propane is one of those hidden commodities in life,” Silva said. “It’s easy to overlook, but if you don’t have natural gas, then you probably use propane. You probably don’t even think about propane, but once you’re aware of it, you’ll see it everywhere. It’s more common that most people realize.” Silva said propane is popular with farmers who use it to power heaters that dry crops such as walnuts and other foods. Propane is also used in the agriculture industry to power irrigation pumps, greenhouse heating systems and generators. Kamps is also revolutionizing the propane industry with the introduction of the Smart System, a monitoring device that automatically alerts Kamps when a customer is in need of more propane.

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

BOTH MY PARENTS HAVE DIED, AND I CAN’T COPE – TRUST ADMINISTRATION Nothing is more gut wrenching for me than when a parent has passed on, and their adult child is in my office looking overwhelmed and lost. First of all, I identify, since my mom, now 90, whom I talk to everyday, will be passing on one of these days. She actually said she was going to will herself to die the day after she turned 90, but God had something else in mind. She was upset. I thought for sure she could do it. She is so strong mentally. The next thing I see is that while some estates are very much in order, many are not. Living Trusts have not been reviewed, and much of the information in them is no longer relevant. An heir is left guessing how to best handle the affairs of someone whose loss they are grieving. People often don’t want to talk to their kids about their choices at death. Shoot, no one wants to talk about death, period. Here are some of the decisions that cause extra stress for the heirs, making the financial decisions even harder: what should I be wearing, open casket or closed casket, should there be flowers or a donation to a charity, what music, should people be allowed to stand up and talk about me, what don’t I want to be given away of my personal effects.

It is a good idea to have a third party (your banker, accountant, lawyer, someone who will not be involved in the funeral or the inheritance) to speak to before you die to let them know some of these things that are too sensitive to tell your family. Then the third party can tell your administrator, and help them through the process. Your trust administrator will be relieved if you introduce them to this person in advance, so when the time comes, they have someone to call immediately to help. Our office provides Trust Administration assistance. We understand that grieving comes first, but the Administrator still has to distribute the estate. Let us help make this a safe and supportive time for the person that you choose to handle your affairs. The information above is not a substitute for seeking legal advice.

Letters from page 16A inhabitants of Brentwood, perpetually and forever, in 1888 by Josephine Sanford. The City Council has completely disregarded her wishes and has taken it upon itself to do whatever it wishes with the park. The city has many fine locations for this new center that should have been considered further, rather than take away property that does not belong to it. It states in your editorial that recalls should be reserved for “ethical violations,” etc. My opinion is that what the City Council has done is not only morally and ethically wrong; it could be considered illegal. Please remember that the council did not have a unanimous vote for this new Civic Center. It was a 3 to 2 vote in favor of. Why do you believe that the two remaining council members voted against it? It is most definitely something worth pondering. No matter how the council tries in vain to justify the exorbitant spending on this new civic center, it is just way out of line, especially considering the state of the economy. The City of Oakley built a beautiful new City Hall for a fraction of the cost that we are going to be paying for ours. To the City Council: “Shame on You.” Alison Pack Brentwood

the effects on the businesses in the Delta during this financial crisis time in California. In a time when so many bad decisions are being made, we don’t need another one that caters to the interest of big lobbyists and their grab for water for Southern California. Evidently, those of us who work and live in the Delta are just “collateral damage” for a project that seems to be steamrolling down the pike! George and Leanne Izzo Discovery Bay

Scaring up funds for Garin Editor: What a phenomenal Hometown Halloween! On behalf of the Garin Parents Club, we would like to thank Melinda at the Catwalk for the perfect location for our Haunted Basement; our dedicated experts of scaring, Maureen and Jim Baker; and the Shred This, LLC family for sponsoring this event. Also the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce, all of the volunteers and visitors who came and made this possible. It was a scary good time that raised over $1,000 for Garin School. Events like this show the community spirit for Brentwood. Thank you! Suzanne Johnson Secretary, Garin Parents Club

BOOville says YAY

Delta dwellers steamrolled by 2-Gates Editor: We attended the 2-Gate Demo Project Forum held at Discovery Bay on Oct. 27 and are alarmed by what we heard. We feel the project is a major setback and deficit to the residents of California, especially when $80 million plus is involved to dam up important rivers in the Delta. When we heard that the Metropolitan Water District was heavily involved, it was a “red flag” that the habitat was really not the issue. There was no mention of any impact on the other species of fish native to the Delta that depends on migration through the river system. We are shocked that the Forum speakers had no answers and evidently no research or concern for the effects the dams will have on the tidal washing of the backwater arrears of Discovery Bay, which could greatly reduce the value of our homes. There also seems to be no concern for

Gun from page 15A think there’s concern there’s going to be a shortage.” While Johnston is enjoying the sales boom, he believes “it will eventually mellow out and people will get back to the standard behavior again. I think people are overly paranoid about this (ammunition) bill. I don’t like government intrusion in my life. But it’s a fact of life and I think it’s going to be alright.” Pittsburg resident Foster Goree, who was at the show looking to buy a handgun for his wife so that they can shoot together at the firing range, doesn’t have a problem with the thumbprint/ID requirement to purchase ammunition. “I think that’s good,” he said. “(It will) make sure the right people have them.” But Jeff Ysmael, who drove out from Concord to buy a box of bullets for a .45caliber automatic handgun and to check out the vintage rifles, is opposed to having his thumb printed and ID sent to Sacramento. “I think that’s ridiculous,” he said. “To me, as much legislation as they are putting down now, it’s just making it harder and harder for people to purchase guns or buy ammunition unless you’re law enforcement or something like that. I think that’s pretty bad. You’re taking rights away from people, which are Constitutional rights.” One of the more popular booths at the show belonged to Jesse Warrick, not so much for the antique pocket watches, knives, coins, cigarette lighters, bayonets, World War II machetes and jewelry on display, but more so for the life-size cardboard figures of Obama and Hillary Clinton standing behind him against the wall. “Everybody wants to know if they are targets,” he said. “I tell them that they can do whatever they want to with them when they buy, but I’m not sell-

ing them as targets. I get a lot of comments, but nobody wants to take these guys home. These are gun people (at the show). And these people (Clinton and Obama) are not gun people, pretty much. Hillary is anti-gun all the way, and I believe Obama is, too. If they had their way, nobody would have anything to defend themselves with.” Nearly as unpopular as Democratic leaders were the news media. Smith complained about news reports of illegal transactions in parking lots outside gun shows. “There’s never been a reported incident other than the local media reporting those things going on,” he said. “If you talk to local law enforcement people, they have never written a report at all about it. A lot of it is just poor reporting.” According to Johnston, “Shooting sports or hunting sports are a great family activity. They have been kind of demonized in the press, in the media. I think it’s just too much bad press.” Smith, who acknowledged that his gun show is “politically incorrect,” is concerned about the efforts to ban gun shows. “That’s been an ongoing concern ever since I’ve been in business for 15 to 20 years,” he said. “There’s a lot of people out there that for some reason want to do away with gun shows. I don’t know what to say. We’re in a liberal state. It’s going to happen some day.” Asked how he feels about that, he said, “It’s my livelihood. How do you think I feel? I’m not sure it will ever happen. The Second Amendment right is the Second Amendment right. I think we’re going to be protected because of the Constitution.” The next Code of the West gun show will be held Nov. 14 and 15 at the Stockton fairgrounds.

Ally Jenkins, back center, finally returned home to Oakley last Saturday after undergoing a double lung transplant in August.

Ally from page 3A cations. She added that Ally would begin catching up on her schoolwork through Independence High later this month, and hopes to be back on campus at Freedom High by the first of the year. “Ally is a burst of energy,” said Vickee. “She tires easily but when she’s awake, she’s full out. I look at her and I still can’t believe it. I can still see her on life support in the hospital and now she’s home jogging. It’s all so amazing.” And life changing. With a new awareness, appreciation and gratitude to the 12-year-old girl whose lungs Ally received and the new life she’s been given, Vickee said the family has a new cause: organ donation.

“When Ally was in the hospital she asked her doctor that if something happened to her could she donate her lungs,” said Vickee. “And the doctor looked right at her and said that by the time she died she would be a little old lady and her lungs would be too old. “But she (Ally) has thought a lot about why this has happened to her, and we all want to encourage and bring awareness to how important it is to be a donor. The ending of our story would not have been so happy without the gift of a donor. It wouldn’t have been the same at all.” For more information on organ donation, visit www.donatelifecalifornia. org.

Patriots East beats Pack Delta Patriots Varsity East vs. Delta Valley Wolfpack In a hard-hitting, playoff-caliber battle, Delta Patriots Varsity East beat the Delta Valley Wolfpack 34-14. The Patriots went ahead 12-0 at halftime. But the determined Wolfpack came out on fire in the second half and jumped ahead 1412. Patriots East also started firing on all cylinders and scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to nail down the victory. Multiple tackles by Amir Mostafavi, Shon Briggs, TJ Briggs, Nick Zalec and Andrew Topete bolstered the backfield effort. Zalec made a pick-six interception; Frank Kurtz and Derek Johnstone put up a TD each, while Topete scored twice. The East is now enjoying an eight game win streak going in to the DYSA Division Championship game next week against the Patriots Varsity West team. Delta Patriots Junior Varsity West vs. Delta Patriots Junior Varsity North Touchdowns early in each half and stout defense were enough to vault the Delta Patriots JV West over the muchimproved JV North 16-0 in DYSA Divisional Playoff action. JV West running back Kyle Trego took it in on a five-yard touchdown dash behind the key block of Pats tackle Nicholas Lenford. Ben Withers made the PAT kick to cap the game’s opening drive. Patriot West linebacker Dylan Capps led the shutout effort on defense, tallying five tackles, two for losses. Capps also recovered a fumble late in the first half after defensive end Jeremy Cook and cornerback Eddie Mason combined to strip the North quarterback. Kevin Milam converted a well-timed halfback option, hitting Pats West receiver Dante Nomellini for a 30-yard touchdown. Withers’ second PAT kick of the game provided the final margin.

Freedom from page 2B The first half pick for a touchdown, (he) just threw the ball a little bit late. Big plays by both teams. Second half they wore on us a little bit. We got banged up. We were down to nobody. But, you know, our kids hung in there and we battled. I’m very proud of our kids. We battled and we played an NCS team to the end. So I’m excited.” Hartwig is hopeful that his team will win a game, perhaps two, in the final two weeks of the season. “If we play the way we played tonight we can do some good things in the next couple of weeks,” he said. “But we have got to show up and play. And hopefully we can get healthy. We have got two or three key guys banged up. If we get healthy we are rolling now. And we have the confidence the last two weeks that we needed. Our kids played their butt off tonight. Very proud of them.” Freedom, which may be the best 0-8 team in the history of the BVAL, will travel to Heritage tonight, Nov. 6. Pittsburg, which is now 2-1 in league play and 4-4 overall, will travel to Liberty.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

H1N1 – know when to go to your doctor Sutter Delta Medical Center, Contra Costa Health Services, Hospital Council of Northern California and the John Muir Health and Doctors Medical Center offer the following guidelines for you or a family member should you exhibit symptoms that might indicate the presence of H1N1, known as swine flu: • If your child under age 5 develops a fever, contact your pediatrician. Young children are at a higher risk of developing complications from H1N1. • If you are pregnant, tell your OB/GYN or your family doctor if you develop flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough and sore throat. • If you have a chronic disease such as heart disease, diabetes or asthma, tell your doctor if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms. • If you believe you are experiencing a medical emergency, go either to your local emergency department or call 911. The majority of H1N1 cases are not medical

emergencies, and most people will recover on their own. Emergency departments cannot test for H1N1 or administer the H1N1 vaccine, but they can treat you for problems such as difficulty breathing or high fever. • If your flu-like symptoms persist for more than one week or if your fever breaks without the aid of medication and then returns a day or two later, tell your doctor right away or go to your local emergency department. Medical emergencies include difficulty breathing or shortness of breath; pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen; sudden dizziness; confusion; seizures; and severe or persistent vomiting. In children, medical emergencies also include fast/rapid breathing or trouble breathing; bluish skin color; not drinking enough fluids; not waking up or not interacting; and refusing to be held. For additional and updated information on H1N1, call the county health line at 888-959-9911.

‘Auction Gallery’ debuts tonight The Kinsella Conservatory Theater, in collaboration with playwright Phillip Canville and Bay Area composer Chris Elise Keller, will debut the musical “Auction Gallery” Nov. 6 through 22 at the Lesher Arts Center in Walnut Creek. Directed by Steve Kinsella, the work features a cast of award-winning actors from New York to San Francisco. “Auction Gallery” has been in the works for nearly 20 years. Canville was inspired to write the libretto after viewing great works of art and enjoying world-class theater while on London excursions with the theater faculty of Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill.

“Auction Gallery” takes place the night before a major auction at a fine arts gallery, where famous works of art are assembled for sale. When the art comes to life, what follows is a theatrical storytelling event that asks the question: “What if as we viewed the art, the art viewed us?” “Audiences are sure to be lifted in spirit,” said Kinsella. “There are delightful twists and turns that you won’t see coming. ‘Auction Gallery’ has us look at art and at ourselves.” Tickets for the performance are $12 and $15, and group discounts are available. For showtimes and tickets, call 925-9437469 or visit www.lesherartscg.

‘Caregivers’ book signing Residential & Commercial

(925) 240.0451 Bonded • Insured • CSLB# 804511

Local author B. Lynn Goodwin will be at Barnes & Noble in Antioch, 5709 Lone Tree Way, on Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 5:30 p.m. to sign copies of “You Want Me To Do What? Journaling for Caregivers.” November is Caregivers Month, and Goodwin has written the perfect book for caregivers, many of whom feel trapped and alone in an endless flurry of medical appointments, cooking, bill paying, question answering, pharmacy hopping – and delving into matters that were once private.

Goodwin’s book helps caregivers handle their stress and celebrate what they do. Goodwin is a freelance writer, former caregiver and retired drama and English teacher. She is also a volunteer for the Contra Costa libraries in its support of Project Second Chance. A percentage of sales from the book signing will benefit Project Second Chance. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 925978-1053.
