Yuletide marches in to town by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

Residents rang in the holiday season with the annual Brentwood Chamber of Commerce Holiday Parade on Saturday, and it made Marge Bascombe feel special. “It’s so nice to come down here and see all the work people have put into building floats and practicing dance routines and everything, and then to line up and walk right by us,” she said, her 5-year-old daughter Andie by her side. “When they wave and say ‘Merry Christmas’ it feels like it’s being done just for me.” Marge and Andie weren’t alone, of course. Hundreds lined the route, waving back at paraders and generally enjoying themselves. “I’ve never seen dancing horses before,” said Walter Gruen as the Charros Los Costenos de Brentwood clip-clopped past. “There’s a nip in the air but I have a warm coat, everyone is

Twihards emerge under ‘New Moon’ by Samie Hartley Staff Writer While the new moon had come and gone, millions of adoring fans gathered in the glimmer of the waxing crescent last week to celebrate the highly-anticipated film release of “New Moon,” the second installment of the “Twilight” saga. The staff at Wild Orchids Salon in Antioch had been patiently counting down the days to Nov. 19 when at 11:59 p.m. they’d gather with dozens of other Twihards to be the first to see the new movie featuring the love story of mortal Bella Swan and vampire Edward Cullen. However, the team at Wild Orchids decided to take it a step further, dressing up for the midnight premiere, sporting vampire makeup and plastic fangs. Makeup artist Chris Bustos, a fellow “Twilight” fan, helped transform the dedicated fans by lightening their skin with white powder, using smoky eye shadow to create a sunken effect around

the eyes, and applying red gloss on the lips to complete the undead alter egos. “We bought our tickets in September,” Bustos said as he glammed stylist Amber Paschall. “We’re really excited. A lot of us have been rereading the books and watching the first movie to prepare for tonight. We’re all going out to dinner before the movie too, so it’s going to be a lot of fun.” While Bustos has been a fan of “Twilight” since the books first came out, Paschall is a newcomer who fell in love with the story after seeing the first movie. “I’m so excited,” Paschall said. “There’s just something about vampires that’s exciting. Sure, they’re a little creepy, but there’s a mystery surrounding them. And the love between Edward and Bella is so interesting because it’s a forbidden love.” The forbidden love between Bella and Edward has been enthralling readers since Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” first hit bookshelves in 2005.

Opposition to 2-Gates grows

Supervisors notified of impasse

by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Hundreds of residents packed the gymnasium at Discovery Bay Elementary School Monday night for an informational meeting on the controversial 2-Gates Fish Protection Project. The San Francisco Bay and Delta Foundation (SFBDF) – a grass-roots group of Discovery Bay residents opposing the 2-Gates project – hosted the town hall meeting. “It was a great turnout,” said Mike Guzzardo, SFBDF publicity chairman. “We had a lot of new faces, and we feel like we’re really starting to gain some momentum; we’re getting the word out.” The 2-Gates project is a five-year experimental program designed to save the Delta smelt by rerouting them away from the water pumps on Old and Middle rivers in Byron, but many feel that the 2-Gates is the precursor to a peripheral canal. The project is a joint venture by the State Department of Water Resources, the Federal Bureau of Reclamation and the Southern California Metropolitan Water District, and would implement the installation of gates at Old River between Holland Tract and Bacon Island, plus a Connection Slough between

The town hall forum was held at the Discovery Bay Elementary School. Mandeville and Bacon Island. The automatic gates would be closed at various times of the year for as much as 10 hours per day, depending on flood tides. The SFBDF was formed only a few weeks ago, but has already been instrumental in getting the Bureau of Reclamation to extend its public comment period by two weeks, to Nov. 30, and the group is hoping to force the bureau to provide an Environmental Impact Report for the Discovery Bay and Delta regions. Pete Lucero, public affairs officer for the Bureau of Reclamation, said that federal agencies such as the bureau do not conduct environmental impact reports but rather envi-

ronmental impact studies (EIS), of which the currently completed environmental assessment is the first step. Should an EIS be necessary, it would be conducted after the close of the public comment period and following the results of the environmental assessment. The SFBDF meets every Monday evening at 6:30 p.m. at the Discovery Bay Yacht Club and is open to the public. Donations to the SFBDF may be mailed to 2465 Discovery Bay Blvd., Suite 200, Discovery Bay, CA 94595. Additional information may be found on the SFBDF Web site, www.nodeltagates. com.

Discovery Bay’s General Manager and Board Secretary Virgil Koehne has sent two letters to the Board of Supervisors (BOS) notifying it of the CSD board openings made available by the resignations of Shannon Murphy-Teixeira and Dave Dove. The CSD board was unable to appoint a replacement for either seat and declined to call for a special election, so the town was required by CSD law to notify the BOS of the situation within 60 days of each director’s resignation. Murphy-Teixeira resigned on Sept. 18, and the letter was sent on Nov. 17. Dove resigned on Sept. 23; his letter was sent to the BOS on Nov. 24. The supervisors now have 30 days to either make appointments or call for a special election. If they do neither, the town will be required to hold a special election.

Feds to step up Delta oversight by Dave Roberts Staff Writer Federal agencies are seeking comments from the public on a plan to ramp up their efforts to help the Delta – a plan that some local officials believe is unnecessary at best and likely harmful. The Delta, which provides drinking water for more than 22 million Californians and supports a $28 billion agricultural industry along with a recreational and fishing industry, “is in crisis,” according to the Sept. 30 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by six federal agencies. “Decades of environmental degradation have led to severe declines in Delta fisheries and have contributed to the collapse of the State of California’s salmon fishing industry. Both the Bay-Delta ecosystem and the economy dependent on its water and fish are on the precipice of collapse. It is imperative that the federal government reestablish a leadership role in Bay-Delta matters.” The agencies agreed to form a Federal Bay-Delta Leadership Committee headed by the Department of the Interior and consisting of the Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Commerce, Department of the Army, Department of Agriculture and Council on Environmental Quality.

In mid-December the committee will begin working on a plan to firm up the scientific research on the Delta, help restore habitat, identify threats to water quality, help stabilize levees to prevent flooding, mitigate the effects of climate change, coordinate Delta regulation among agencies and assist in water conservation, recycling and efficiency. The agreement remains in effect for five years. While all those objectives sound good on the surface, some local Delta advocates, such as Oakley Councilman Bruce Connelley, are skeptical of more governmental intrusion into Delta affairs. “Over the years since the early 1990s, had our state and federal governments performed their duties to preserve and restore the ecosystem and fish habitats in California, we wouldn’t have the crisis we’re faced with today,” said Connelley via e-mail. “All we need to do is enforce the laws that are on the books now. Many laws, rulings and enactments have been passed by our legislators, only to fail because they were not carried out.” He cited the failure of the Central Valley Project Improvement Act enacted in 1992 to double the number of fish in Central Valley streams, and the CALFED Bay-Delta program enacted in 1995 to recover at-risk Delta species. “We don’t need more bureaucracies, laws

Glover has announced openings for District V representatives on the following commissions: Alcohol and Other Drugs Advisory Board, Contra Costa County Mental Health Commission, Countywide Youth Commission and Mobile Home Advisory Commission.

The federal Sept. 30 Memorandum of Understanding is just bunk! The public has been commenting for decades. Can’t they hear? It’s past time for action not discussion.” Also skeptical of increased federal involvement in the Delta is Arne Simonsen, an Antioch resident and former chairman of the Delta Protection Commission. He’s concerned about the federal agencies’ goal of helping develop the Bay Delta Conservation Plan, which he said is a Delta water grab

That plan includes construction of a peripheral canal, which most local officials fear would harm local water quality. “We were locked out of the process,” said Simonsen. “It was all done behind closed doors and we had a hell of a time getting information about it. The whole purpose of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan is a peripheral canal. That’s my real hang-up with this thing.” The public may submit comments on the federal plan by Tuesday, Dec.1 at www.nbc. gov/doi_feedback/water_comments.cfm.

Private company hopes to land Byron Airport by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

A small company with a post office box in Discovery Bay is looking to purchase the county-owned Byron Airport. Carol A. Jackson, chief executive officer of Holiday AirTours Inc., said his company plans to build a $3.7 million facility at the Byron Airport but would also purchase the 13,000-acre airport itself if the county is willing to let it go. “Yeah, we want to purchase the airport so that we can get things done a little bit quicker,” said Jackson, who lives in Oakley. “What happens right now is that bureaucracy kind of slows things down, and if you’re going to put a lot of money into something, then you want to get it up and running. “Our (initial) proposal is to put a fixed base operation center over at the airport and put a really nice facility out there. Something that has arched hangars, modern equipment … we are also looking to lease and sell aircraft and have a Cessna pilot school. This is all something we want to do (purchase the airport and expand it) for the community.” Holiday AirTours Inc. is a division of Delaware Corporation, an online company that files limited liability company and incorporation papers for Californiabased companies. Jackson, a full-time facilities maintenance manager for a transit company in

Holiday AirTours, a privately owned company, is hoping to purchase the Byron Airport and implement a $3.7 million expansion program similar to the rendering above. Livermore, said that while Holiday AirTours is not officially off the ground, an anonymous single investor has agreed to back either the $3.4 million expansion at the airport and/or the entire purchase of the airport. Funding is expected to be received, said Jackson, by the first of the year, although the purchase price of the airport remains unknown.

Keith Freitas, director of airports for the county-owned Buchanan Airfield in Concord as well as the Byron Airport, agreed that an asking price for the 13,000acre airport would be hard to determine. “I know that the original purchase price about 15 years ago was around $22 million,” said Freitas. “But the thing that makes it complicated is that there are a

lot of stakeholders, including the Board of Supervisors, the state and the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration). The FAA holds the pink slip and they funded about 90 percent of the project when it was built. It could be less complicated as a long-term lease versus a full-bore sale. I’ve actually never heard of that (an outright sale) happening before.” Jackson said a master lease plan might be an option. “Our Plan B is to build the facility even if we can’t buy the airport, and do some kind of lease where we would have the control,” said Jackson. “This is a project that is going to help the county, city, state and communities. We’re the advocates for bringing in new business. Anytime there is an airport in the area, the community grows exponentially and we want to help East County grow in a way it has never seen by bringing in general aviation and commercial jet service, except in a smaller way that would allow corporate services and that kind of thing.” The Byron Airport, which opened to the public in 1994, records approximately 50,000 operations – take-offs and landings – per year. In 2008, the county broke ground on a $7 million dollar jet facility center. So far, said Freitas – who brought Holiday AirTours’ proposal before the Aviation Advisory Committee – the response has been lukewarm. see Airport page 7A

Autumnal awe SHOULD WE TAKE OUR HOME OFF THE MARKET DURING THE HOLIDAYS? Every year about this time I hear this question. There is a myth out there that home selling activity completely shuts down after Thanksgiving and picks up again in January. The truth is that homes sell all year round. I’ve had some of my best months in December. If you aren’t that motivated to sell, you don’t have a deadline to meet, and showing your home during the Holidays is too much of a hassle, go ahead and take your home off the market. However, if you do have to sell your home, and you do have a deadline to meet, then leave it on the market. It certainly isn’t going to sell if you take it off the market! Here are some reasons why the Holidays are a great time to be on the market—Some people take more time off of work, giving them more time to go look at homes. While there are fewer buyers looking, those that are looking are serious buyers. The “lookey-loos” go home, leaving the serious ones. These are usually the buyers that are getting relocated

who are usually your best buyers because they have a deadline to meet and often company financial support so they are non-contingent buyers. Many buyers want to get their family settled before school starts up again in January. Also, when does your home look better than when you have it all cleaned up and decorated for the Holidays? Lastly, consider that many other sellers will take their homes off the market, so the buyers have fewer homes to choose from. If you absolutely, positively do not want to move until after the Holidays, that is still not a reason to avoid being on the market now. If you get an offer asking you to move out December 20, you can counter-offer a new date or just refuse the offer altogether. If you have questions on this or any other real estate topic, call me at (925) 240MOVE (6683). To search the MLS for free and view virtual tours of homes for sale, go to: www.SharpHomesOnline.com.

We are approaching this as a positive effect that will impact the surrounding communities in a positive way. It will benefit everyone.” Either way, the process has begun and

the next step is putting the proposal before the Airport Committee, comprised of Contra Costa County Supervisors Mary Piepho and Susan Bonilla. If the two supervisors agree the project has merit, it will go before the full Board of Supervisors for consideration. But even if the supervisors support the concept, it’s still not a sure thing for Jackson and his company. “If it makes it as far as the Board of Supervisors, then it would have to become part of the competitive process, and then anyone could bid on it,” said Freitas. “It’s (the proposed sale) going to end up being a strictly policy decision.” To comment on this story, visit www. thepress.net.

Byron school board names trustee by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Elaine Landro had been hoping she might one day become a member of the Byron Union School Board (BUSD), she just didn’t know it would happen so soon. But as a result of last month’s surprise resignation of trustee Lisa Hultz – whose term expires in 2010 – Landro pushed up her timetable and threw her hat into the ring. On Nov. 17, the BUSD board unanimously appointed Landro to the vacant board seat. “I had been thinking about running (in 2010) but when Lisa (Hultz) had to resign, it did open up an opportunity for me,” said Landro. “The (appointment) meeting went very well. They interviewed us (the candidates), voted, swore me in and put me up there to start making decisions. It all happened very quickly.” Landro is already a familiar name to many teachers and parents in the district. The working mom and longtime PTA member’s daughter attends Discovery Bay Elementary and her son Excelsior Middle School. But taking on the role of board trustee will impose its own learning curve. “I’ve been super involved in the schools for years,” said Landro. “But being on the board will allow me to be more involved in the working end of things. All my former work has had to do with fundraising, so this will give me a little more insight into

LANDRO how things operate from a policy standpoint.” A total of four candidates – residents Bob Green, Jim Madison, Dave Turner and Landro – applied for the empty board seat. “I just want to say that the other candidates were all very qualified and extremely eloquent,” said Landro. “I was proud to be considered along with them.” BUSD Board President Ken Silman said that while all the candidates were indeed qualified, Landro was the perfect choice: “All the candidates were very, very good. They were positive and candid and qualified. I had a little score sheet in front of me to help keep track of each candidate, and in the end I had two (applicants) that were tied for first place, and the other two

were a half point and one full point behind, so it was very close. “I am very excited to have Elaine on board. She has a lot to offer in terms of experience and she brings a very positive energy to the board.” Landro is looking forward to contributing to a school district that she said is already blessed with a dedicated staff and outstanding students. “There are a lot of really great things going on here (in the district), but like all school districts we are facing financial issues, so the coming year will be one of decisions, I’m sure. I believe the district’s priorities will continue to be the completion of the Measure C dollars. “Also, the advancements we have made in resource, getting to all the children not just academically, but socially as well, have been great and I look forward to continuing that. I’m really looking forward to working with the board. It’s exciting.” Landro will serve out Hultz’s seat until November of 2010, when four of the board’s five seats expire (Silman’s seat expires in 2012). If all goes well, she hopes to be elected to a seat next year. “This (appointment) gives me a year to see how it works out, and I’m already enjoying it,” she said. “I’m excited and things are already rolling. They have put me right to work; I’ve already got my hands to the flame. It’s going to be a good year.” To comment on this story, visit www. thepress.net.

Politics of destruction crippling Discovery Bay The dictionary defines the expression “collateral damage” as “damage unintended or incidental to the intended outcome.” It originated with the United States military, but one need look no farther than the Town of Discovery Bay for an example that has resulted in the loss of some the town’s autonomy. The local example seems to have its roots about two years ago in a dispute over the Town’s landscaping, what should be done DITORIAL to improve it, and who should be consulted in making the decisions. Resident Bill Richardson, whose offer to help was not accepted by the CSD Board of Directors, continued pressing his case that the issue was being poorly handled, sending increasingly voluminous and strident letters bemoaning the board’s performance. As time went by, the focus of his effort increasingly became one director in particular: David Piepho. Richardson’s lament resulted in a lawsuit against the district alleging that CSD board violated the law by not recording meeting minutes properly, not conducting its business in public and acting without properly voting. After the town spent some $100,000 to defend the suit, Richardson dropped it last November in return for the board’s simple acknowledgement that there were laws governing its conduct. No findings were made that the town had broken any of those laws. A Press editorial at the time said, “The entire episode was rife with personal attacks, name calling and disrupted meetings, and cost nearly $200,000 in legal expenses on both

E

sides. The reputation of the town as a whole suffered, as mean-spirited invective replaced reasonable discussion as a way to get things done. The case was likely a major reason residents elected a pair of new directors, Mark Simon and Ray Tetreault, who ran together on a slate for change. … We hope that the change … will signal the beginning of a genuine effort to change the way differences are settled in Discovery Bay.” But that didn’t happen. A number of other constituents, for various reasons, were drawn to the fray, their intense disapproval spreading to virtually every issue Piepho addressed, as well as to those who agreed with him, voted with or for him, or, in the case of County Supervisor Mary Piepho, lived with him. The group, nominally perhaps as many as three dozen but whose core is half that, has met from time to time to discuss strategy. Minutes from those meetings note some participants’ primary objective: the destruction of the Piephos’ political future. They have hammered at the Piephos over public records, ZIP Code boundaries, a no-tow zone ordinance, open meeting laws, meeting stipends, residential growth, advisory council (AC) duties, AC funding, AC boundaries, the community center, the response to sewage spills, the posting of meeting announcement signs, availability of meeting agendas, expenditure of P6 law enforcement funds, commission appointments, boat storage zoning, the town’s Web site, fiscal policy, representation on the county Local Agency Formation Commission, security cameras, water discharge quality, Byron’s sewer system, conflicts of interest and responsibility concerning the Piephos’ offices, safety improvements to Highway 4, eBART station sites and highway right-of-ways.

LETTERS Don’t let health legislation shortchange women Editor: I have been hearing so much in the media about health care reform lately. There are so many different ideas being promoted it can make your head spin, and also distract your attention from what I think is really the most important thing: the cost of coverage. As a mother, that is one of my biggest concerns. How can you say there is any real reform in health care unless the reforms make health care more affordable? After all, if the reforms make insurance more expensive, then it would make the ones who are paying now drop it

and give it free to people who already cannot afford it, and this would automatically do two things: reduce the availability of health care and increase the need for subsidized care to those who cannot pay. It will also by necessity increase the cost across the board to those who do pay for it now. How is this different? I see it as a redistribution of everything sacred to us as Americans. The government is already trying to take away mammograms and pap smears; this is a slap in the face to women. My husband’s niece died at 21, his sister at 30, his mother and his aunt had mastectomies before the age of 40. This is not that uncommon. Seems like a way to get rid of a segment of our society by not covering some of the most terrible and painful diseases. Men, look out – prostate health might be next! The health bill has not even been passed and this administration is trying to opt out of coverage for a big part of women’s health. This seems like such a step backward for everyone – let’s not even consider any reforms that do not also make health care more affordable, because affordable also means available for many people, including my family. If it is to be as good or better, then it needs to cover what we need to have covered under our rights as citizens. Women are not second-class citizens in this country! Rose Adams Brentwood

Compassionate community Editor: I noticed the headline of last week’s Press

are probably more. While a few of these topics remain hotly debated – including the ongoing effort to solve the vexing problem of copper-contaminated discharge that has resulted in steep fines – official findings of fault on the CSD board’s part have thus far been few, including the failure to publicly notice a subcommittee meeting and the order in which business is conducted at the beginning of some CSD meetings. Both of those items have since been addressed. The ceaseless attacks, accompanied by a torrent of public-records requests, vitriolic Internet postings and confrontations at board meetings and in public, caused heightened resistance and deeper entrenchment on Piepho’s part and brought his equally fervent supporters to the surface. The result has been a no-holds-barred battle between the two factions. Lines were drawn in concrete as the missiles flew both ways. Finally, the melee resulted in an atmosphere so toxic that two directors – including the group’s one ally – resigned from the board. The effort to replace the directors then became the latest frontline in the battle of wills. Forced by their reduction in numbers to vote unanimously in order to appoint new directors, the board was unable to do so. The matter of choosing the town’s new representatives will now be decided by the County Board of Supervisors, including Mary Piepho, instead of the people of Discovery Bay or the town’s elected board. All government bodies have their shortcomings, especially those with part-time officials. Dissatisfaction is bound to arise see Discovery Bay page 16A

“Compassion returns to Brentwood” – and the story about the charitable giving during this holiday season. All to the good of our community. I would like to add my “Thank You” to the army of men and women who serve the poor in Brentwood through St. Vincent de Paul society at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, as well as the equivalent at St. Anthony in Oakley. Between the two churches, some 10,000 families will have been served in 2009! And the best part is that it happens every week, not just during the holidays. Thank you to all who work so hard for the poor in our communities. Fr. Jerry Brown Pastor, IHM

Unwilling to settle for council’s vision Editor: On Thursday, Nov. 12 at 4 p.m., the CommitteeTo Stop Rosewood turned in 52 petition books with 2,258 signatures. The petitions now go to the county registrar for validation of those signatures over the next 30 days. If we have over 1,400 validated Oakley voters’ signatures, the Rosewood rezoning ordinance must be reconsidered by the Oakley City Council and either repealed or put to a vote of the voters. (We’d love a vote to show the city how the voters feel about dense growth, but it probably won’t happen.) Our thanks to our many hardworking volunteers and to the many voters who signed the petition.

Next we will look at the two issues that came up during our campaign. First: the residents’ overwhelming desire to slow down Oakley’s rampant growth and keep Oakley a true small town, and second: the refusal of the mayor and council to read and consider our comments into the record on Sept. 22 and their outright refusal to even allow us to address them on Oct. 13. In our opinion, from attending the council’s meetings on Knox Lane, Rosewood, and the General Plan workshop, the City of Oakley is very hostile to slowing residential growth or even lessening the density of growth. If you, like us, are unwilling to settle for that, please e-mail us at stoprosewood@ sbcglobal.net. Committee To Stop Rosewood Officers Brad Nix Denise Morford Debbie Retzloff Ann Corridon

Robert’s Investment Update By Robert Burpee

Tax Loss Season: It is that time of the year again where you tally up your winners and losers and decide what to do with your portfolio before year end. As you approach December 31st the best thing to do is match up some of your losing investments with some of your winning investments and create a wash in regard to a taxable event in the portfolio. Hopefully, after you have done that you have only unrealized gains in the winners that you still hold! Also, you can usually find an in kind or similar investment for both the position that was a gain and the position that was a loss that can replace the recent sales. If you want to get back into a stock, bond or investment you sold for a loss you need to wait 31 days to get the benefit of the tax loss on the position. In doing this process each year it gives you a fresh look at your current allocation and lets you step back and

look at what you may want to do with your allocation as you go forward into the new year. If you have questions about tax loss selling and would like a review of your current allocation please feel free to call me at the number below.

and flaws are sure to be found regarding policy, procedure, performance and – a big one in Discovery Bay – attitude. This is what elections are for. But even the election of directors Simon and Tetreault failed to quell the disturbance, and the “slate for change” is now also under attack. It is certainly within the rights of the Piephos’ antagonists to pursue their agenda through any legal means available to them, just as it is within the rights of the Piephos and their supporters to defend themselves through the means at their disposal. But it should be clear by now that the tactic of all-out assault against all things Piepho has proven ineffective, and the collateral damage to the town’s reputation and ability to govern itself is inexcusable. We believe it’s high time for the hostile politics in Discovery Bay to end. The Piephos

and their backers must re-learn compromise and strive to conduct the town’s business from the middle ground instead of from the ramparts of self defense. For that to happen, though, their opponents must change their approach, and use the laws of governance to improve the town, not encumber or tear it apart. They should find and put forth candidates they truly believe in and who have positive ideas on how to address the town’s problems. For their current course, seeking the destruction of one or two individuals regardless the collateral damage, now echoes too strongly a ludicrous argument from the Vietnam War: that it’s OK to destroy a village in order to save it. It’s not. If they believe the village needs to be saved, they must find another way to do it. To comment on this editorial, visit www. thepress.net.

Letters from page 13A with optimism; we live in a city that we can be proud of, we have schools to be proud of, we have our kids, family and friends, all of which make up the thread that binds us together in our everyday lives. As we approach this holiday season, let us look forward to the year 2010; may it bring joy to our community. Let us share the goodness that resides within the hearts of Brentwood residents. This holiday season, share your thanks within your families and with your neighbors. Let the spirit of the holidays continue throughout the year 2010. On behalf of the mayor’s family, I wish you to be safe and blessed throughout the season. God bless our country; God bless our city. Mayor Robert (Bob) Taylor

Thank you again for helping to make the Bell Game tradition a success! Erik Faulkner Principal, Freedom High School

Power plants no respecters of health and welfare Editor: PG&E and two small-time power companies proposing to build new power plants in Antioch and Oakley are exploiting the worst economic crisis in decades – the crisis brought on largely by the same “too-big-tofail” petroleum industrial complex leveraging and monopolizing that ruined our economy in the first place. By pitting the alarmingly unemployed local union labor against Smart Growth and what’s best for our East County’s economic future is a questionable way to go. Of course we all want full employment and we desperately want everyone to be able to consume as their various needs demand, but our longterm health and environment are inextricably woven into this economic future. It is very important that we have an outreach program to educate the affected public about the proposed Antioch and Oakley power plants, and that they are still avoidable. Other mitigation for these power plants is possible – for example, energy conservation and alternative energy resources (renewable) are the desired future for our communities. In this day and age, to put forth such nonsensical babble in authentic discourse is absolute hogwash. PG&E’s arguments against the organizations (they label us as see Letters page 17A

Brentwood Veterinary Hospital

What is pet insurance? Does it really help, and is it worth it? Owning a pet is a tremendously rewarding and enjoyable undertaking. However, the joy of bringing a furry (or not so furry) creature into your family is balanced by the downsides of having a member of the household who is completely dependent on you for everything from food & shelter to exercise, affection and medical care. As we all know, pet ownership is a lot of work, and it can become expensive as well. As veterinary medicine advances and services and technology become more sophisticated, the cost of medical care for our pets has increased and will continue to increase accordingly. Of course, in the current economy, it is becoming more difficult to cover even basic household expenses and many of us are looking for ways to ease the burden on our budgets while still providing for our families. Pet insurance, although not new, has become a more useful and practical tool for managing the costs of veterinary care over the last several years. Most insurance plans help cover not only the basic preventative care that keeps our pets healthy from year-to-year, but also unexpected or emergency care for everything from the dog or cat that is hit by a car and has severe traumatic injuries; exposure to household toxins including antifreeze, food toxins or snail bait; or even surgery and treatment for conditions such as diabetes, orthopedic concerns, and dental care. Treatment for these conditions can be very costly, but generally offers a good outcome and pets often go home healthy. Unfortunately, without treatment, most of these conditions are fatal or result in lifelong chronic pain and illness. When the cost of unexpected veterinary medical care exceeds the family budget, many owners have few options and are forced to use credit cards they may not be able to afford, borrow money from a friend or family member, or some even choose to euthanize their pets. With several insurance companies and dozens of

different policies to choose from, pet health insurance is an easy and practical alternative to these choices. A good quality plan can be purchased for around $30.00 per month. An important part of deciding to purchase pet insurance is knowing what type of plan will be best for your pets and family circumstances. Some important things to remember while deciding on pet insurance: · Know the type of plan you are purchasing, either a high deductible plan or a plan that pays on a fee schedule. · Research pet insurance policies before or soon after you obtain a pet. The earlier you insure your pet, the more likely an illness or accident will be covered by your plan. · Understand when and how you will be reimbursed from the company following treatment. · Know what your policy does or does not cover (pre-existing conditions, hereditary conditions, conditions common to your pet’s species or breed). · Be sure the providers you consider are licensed to operate in your state. Go to www.petinsurancereview.com to view other pet owner’s reviews of different plans and policies. · Don’t make a decision or purchase a plan based solely on advertising or cost alone. · Don’t delay selecting a provider until your pet needs medical care. Many plans have a 30- to 180-day waiting period for coverage. Our staff is extremely knowledgeable about the most common pet health insurance programs available. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you should have any questions about your options or how to get more information. Pet insurance is an affordable way to protect these very special members of your family and provide you with some peace of mind and financial stability if your pet becomes ill. – Advertisement

om and Julie Aumock, and Amy and Rick Spero brought their Brentwood Press – and bought their Moscow Times – on a recent trip to Russia, where Tom and Rick’s Voices In Harmony men’s chorus was invited to sing at the 10th annual Barbershop Harmony Festival in St. Petersburg. Voices In Harmony joined 11 Russian quartets and ensembles singing barbershop harmony, and many of the songs were sung in English. That’s right: Russians think barbershop music is the bee’s knees. Tom, Julie, Amy and Rick are Seen with their Hometown Weekly Newspaper in Red Square in front of the Kremlin. Spassibo, everyone!

ormer Antioch City Councilman Arne Simonsen recently wrapped up a seven-week R&R at his home in Scotland at the former RAF Edzell base where he was stationed and met his wife, Sylvia, back in 1967-68. Simonsen “missed the phone calls and coffee meetings and most of all my granddaughter.” He didn’t, however, miss the Antioch Press – he brought it with him. “What I miss about Scotland is the people,” wrote Simonsen, “particularly the former U.S. military that also married Scottish lassies and retired over here. We all get together every week for breakfast in Montrose” – Sylvia’s hometown. Thanks, councilman, for a bonny excursion.

Twihards from page 1A Orchids is Team Edward all the way, and front desk coordinator Debbie Siino leads the charge. “I love Edward. I’d marry him,” confessed Siino. “He’s so sexy. He’d do anything for Bella – even if that means leaving her in ‘New Moon’ to protect her. That’s actually why ‘New Moon’ is my least favorite in the series because there’s not enough Edward, but that’s part of the fun too because you’re waiting to see if and when and how they’ll be reunited. It gives me goose bumps just thinking about it.” Siino, wearing an “I’m a sucker for vampires” T-shirt, got into the series early on and has since become what Bustos describes as Twihardcore. “I guess you could say I’m obsessed,” Siino said. “I’ve made a ‘Twilight’ shrine at my house. I’ve read the books four times each. I don’t even know how many times I’ve watched the movie – probably 50 times, maybe 60. It’s just such a good story. “It’s that forbidden love story that really wins me over. Everything says Edward and Bella shouldn’t be together, but they can’t not be together. Their love is too strong. Love always finds a way, and I think that’s what people like about the story. They love that idea that love conquers all. Everyone wants that Bella-Edward kind of love.” Siino’s passion inspired some of her co-workers to jump on the “Twilight” bandwagon. Stylist Melissa Aoanan is the most recent convert. “Everyone was talking about these ‘Twilight’ books, but I just

thought ‘Oh, whatever. Vampires – big deal,’ but Debbie insisted that I give it a try, so I read the first book and that was it. I read the entire series within 10 days. I’ve never loved a book so much before.” Wild Orchids owner Lori Lopez said she’s glad her staff has found something they all enjoy. Lopez, who also enjoys the “Twilight” series but didn’t attend the midnight showing, said she’d see the movie later – not only as a fan but as a hair style professional. “I want to look at the hair styles. I know people will be coming in with photos of the characters, wanting that look. That’s what happened after the first movie. Bella’s look with the long layers was very popular, so I expect that will happen again.” “New Moon” broke box office records for midnight showings, earning $26.3 million, and opening day records, pulling in $72.7 million, besting “The Dark Knight,” which earned $67.2 million on its opening day last year. “Knight” still holds the top spot for opening weekend earnings at $158 million, but “New Moon” managed an impressive $140 million draw, double what “Twilight” made last November. At this rate, experts predict “New Moon” will make more than $600 million worldwide, especially if fans go back for a second or third viewing. Bustos said he went back and saw “New Moon” Friday afternoon, and he plans to see the film a third time this weekend. “It was amazing – so much fun. Rave (Motion Pictures) actually let us in around nine, so we didn’t have to wait in the cold. And once we got inside, it was like a “Twi-

Lots of people were wearing the shirts, and some people were even watching the first movie on their laptops. We played trivia games and talked about our favorite parts of the books, so it was a lot of fun.” While Bustos enjoyed “New Moon,” Siino said she was hoping for more depth in the story, but she too has already seen the film a second time: “I was hoping they’d show some more things, but if they included everything from the book, it’d be a five-hour movie, so that’s fine. We all

had a lot of fun hanging out with the other ‘Twilight’ fans, and we’ll do it again when ‘Eclipse’ comes out.” “Eclipse,” the third book in the series, has already been filmed and is scheduled to hit theaters in May of 2010.

In 1956, the Reddick family moved to Knightsen, where Bill attended Knightsen Elementary School. He graduated from Liberty High School in 1963, attended DVC and received his real estate license. Bill built several custom homes and was the owner and operator of Orwood Road Storage and Reddick Tractor Service. He loved sports cars and owned several, which he loved to drive on East County back roads.

Tom Dimock On Oct. 18 we lost an incredible man to lung cancer. Tom Dimock, 46, passed away at his home in Discovery Bay. Tom is survived by his wife, Denise, and sons Cody, 3, and Devin, 10. He also leaves stepbrothers Ed and Joe Ramsauer and their families; step-sister Robin Kuborssy and her family and stepmom Judy Dimock. Tom was a wonderful husband and father. He helped with classroom parties, BOOville and the annual holiday float in addition to several of Devin’s sports teams as coach of football, soccer and baseball. And although Cody is only 3, Tom was very involved in his life as well as at school and at home. He was also a

great advocate for a better quality of life for his children, choosing to raise his family here in Discovery Bay. Tom absolutely loved to golf. As a member of Discovery Bay Country Club for the past three years, Tom finally made a hole in one this past July – an accomplishment he was incredibly proud of and shared with anyone and everyone who would listen. Although he lived with this disease for 15 months, he did not let the disease define him. He continued to remain active and always had the best attitude regarding his disease. He always felt that a positive attitude was what kept him going. He was also extremely happy with his “country club” lifestyle – golfing, taking the kids to school in the golf cart, working around the house, living on the fifth fairway overlooking the course and generally enjoying life to the fullest. Tom will be greatly missed every day. Thank you to everyone for your kind words and wishes. A memorial golf tournament will be held next March at the country club to honor Tom and what an inspiration he was to so many people. If you are interested in participating in the tournament, please visit www.holeinonefortom.com. Additionally, a family fund has been set up to help the family

with daily expenses. If you would like to donate, please send monies to Chase Bank, 3100 Balfour Road, Brentwood, CA 94513, Acct # 4232446462. Checks should be made payable to the Denise Dimock Family Fund. Please visit the Web site to sign up for the golf tournament, donate to the family fund, read all about Tom or write any comments you would like the family to read. He was an absolutely amazing man who loved his wife and family more than anyone can imagine. He will be missed and loved every day and forever.

Trevor Pels, a Freedom swimmer and water polo player carrying a 5.0 grade point average, is applauded at last week’s Fall Sports Award Night.

Freedom honors athletes by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

Although it was a mixed fall season for Freedom High sports teams, the main sport in high school is, of course, mental gymnastics: the four-year academic marathon comprised of semester-long dashes to make the grades. Appropriately, and belying the stereotype of the dumb jock, last week’s Fall Sports Awards Night celebrated some of the brainiest athletes on campus. The champion so far this year is swimmer and water polo player Trevor Pels, whose 5.0 grade point average drew oohs and a “wow” from the Awards Night crowd packed into the multipurpose room. Pels “has been chasing after this goal for quite some time,” said Freedom Athletic Director Steve Amaro. “He was going to make sure that he was not denied. He has tied the record for any athlete at Freedom High School.”

In second place was Donovan Ott-Bales, who has earned an unweighted 4.0 GPA and a weighted GPA of 4.25. He and Pels are the top two of 31 other athletes with GPAs of 3.75 or better who received certificates of recognition. Another 34 received certificates for earning GPAs of 3.5-3.74. “I want to thank all of our academic NCS athletes,” said Amaro. “You are our true leaders at Freedom High School. And you truly leave us with something to emulate. Congratulations.” Amaro also thanked the parents for supporting their children, the boosters who raise funds to support the teams, the cheerleaders “for their tireless efforts at all of the events this year,” the leadership committee for putting up signs at varsity contests and the coaches who put in a lot of work for often not a lot of reward.

Monta Vista’s Sylvia Li won her NorCal match Saturday after her opponent dropped out due to illness.

Monta Vista wins Nor-Cal by Dave Roberts Staff Writer The Monta Vista High girls tennis team won the CIF-USTA Nor-Cal Team Tennis Championship at Diamond Hills Sports Club in Oakley Saturday. Monta Vista’s 4-3 victory over Saratoga was aided by the withdrawal of Saratoga’s top player, Mika Padmanabhan. After losing her second service game to Sylvia Li and trailing 0-4 in the first set, Padmanabhan looked listless and complained of dizziness as the players came to the bench for a break. “This is ri-

diculous. I can’t do anything,” she said before lying down on her back on the court. Li, who had beaten Padmanabhan twice in league play but lost to her in the Central Coast Section (CCS) playoffs, was disappointed afterward. “I was really looking forward to this match,” she said. “The last time I lost I played really badly. I was looking for revenge. I was really hoping we could finish.” Monta Vista is located in Cupertino, just a short drive up Highway 85 from Saratoga, so there’s a strong rivalry between the two schools.

Costa wins MVP by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

Heritage’s Sean Packard (34) fights for the ball at a scrimmage Saturday.

Heritage ties in scrimmage by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

In fall after the end of football season, a young man’s fancy turns to thoughts of basketball. Such was the case Saturday morning in the Heritage gym, where the boys basketball team scrimmaged to a draw against Moreau Catholic just 13 hours after the Patriot football team was eliminated from the playoffs. Although their energy and intensity flagged toward the end of the 80-minute contest as they got outhustled by the Mariners, the Patriots showed a lot of athleticism and skill from a variety of players. Despite losing three starters from last season’s team to graduation, they’ll try to match or exceed their 19-9 (10-5 league) record. “It was a lot of fun to get as far as we went,” said Coach Pat Cruickshank. “Our kids, our program took a lot of pride in what we did.” Having graduated this season to the tougher NCS Division I, the Patriots will look to last year’s JV squad – which went undefeated in league play – for help

in the coming campaign. The coach likes his team’s intensity and versatility, but he wasn’t able to see enough in the scrimmage to tell more than that. “We executed some things well and played hard at times,” he said. “Then there were other times when our execution broke down and our intensity lacked – things that you expect from a first scrimmage. Hopefully, we can learn from that and get better from it. It’s kind of a work in progress. We’re still really continuing to get to know each other a little bit. We are trying to develop what we think we might be able to do best.” The Patriots’ first home game will be Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. against San Ramon Valley. League action starts Saturday, Jan. 2 at home against Freedom. “We’ll be ready for league once we get there,” said Cruickshank. “Hopefully, we can perform well in our preseason and kind of get a head of steam going into league.” In the meantime, he added, “We’re just having fun. The kids are working hard. I like my guys again.” To comment on this story, visit www. thepress.net.

Corinne Costa, Liberty’s 6-foot-4inch volleyball star, has been awarded the MVP trophy of the Bay Valley Athletic League, capping one of the most dominating seasons by a girl volleyball player in recent history. Costa’s height and skill at spiking the ball over the net with velocity enabled her to become 23rd in the state and 40th in the nation in kills, according to Liberty Coach Linda Ghilarducci. “Her stats just speak for themselves,” said the coach. “She had 31 kills against Heritage – 31 is insane; that doesn’t really happen. So yes, she was a big factor in our wins. There’s not too many 6-foot-4 girls. So it’s hard to stop her; a lot of people couldn’t block her or do anything.” While Costa naturally gets most of the attention, three Liberty players made the BVAL second team: Mo Du-long, Brittany David and Chantal Lasher. Although it wasn’t the greatest season in her 26 years of coaching volleyball at Liberty, Ghilarducci is satisfied with the outcome. The Lions finished third in league and made it into the NCS playoffs for the 24th time in the coach’s tenure, knocking off Irvington in the first round before falling to secondseeded Granada. Their record was 21-16 overall and 10-5 in league play. “It’s not easy getting to NCS,” said Ghilarducci. “Everybody thinks it’s pretty easy, but it’s not. I was very pleased because we were underdogs and went as far as everybody else went. We lost one player. We had to change of a lot of things. We had some adversity to work out, but it all worked out. I was pleased with the season. I was pleased with the playoffs.”

Liberty’s Number 1 killer, Corinne Costa, has been selected BVAL MVP. “Gooch,” as she’s affectionately known on campus, has enjoyed a storied career at Liberty, taking her team to three NCS championships, one Nor-Cal championship and a second-place finish in the state tournament. She’s won numerous coaching awards and is in the Liberty Union High School District Sports Hall of Fame. Next season the Liberty girls team will need to rebuild after losing seven seniors to graduation. “That’s OK. I’ve been in that position before,” said Gooch. “You get your team and you keep them going. We’ll be fine next year. The JV and freshman – it’s a pretty good program. I have five coming back. So I’m looking forward to next year.” To comment on this story, visit www. thepress.net.

Deer Valley from page 1B more than nine minutes. Phillip Farmer’s 1-yard touchdown plow with less than five minutes left closed the scoring. “They did a really great job,” said Deer Valley Coach Rich Woods. “We had three starters out and I’m very pleased with the way we played. The plan is to have (the injured players) back next week. We sat them this week to be sure that they would be good for the playoff run.” As for his next opponent, Woods is confident his team can beat anyone if they play the way they did against Newark. Combs summed up his game with suc-

cinctness reminiscent of Julius Caesar: “I got loose, I followed my blocks and I scored.” He added, “Every day I go hard in practice. We are thrilled to be 11-0. We’ve never done this in school history. We just want to keep it going.” They’ll get that opportunity tonight, Friday, Nov. 27 at 7 p.m., when 11-0 Deer Valley (the only undefeated Division I team in NCS) hosts Pittsburg (7-4 overall, 4-1 league).

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Concussions top the list of teen-related injuries by Susan Purcell Sutter Delta Medical Center Sports-related concussions are on the rise in the United States, and teenagers top the list of victims, registering more than 300,000 head injuries annually. And according to Dr. Angelita Tangco, a board certified neurologist affiliated with Sutter Delta Medical Center in Antioch, it’s not a surprising statistic. “From the time you start walking, you are falling down,” said Tangco. “At first it’s playground games, and then the play gets more organized with sports like soccer and football. They put you together and tell you to run around and if you get hit or fall down, they tell you to keep playing and tough it out. And that’s not always a good idea.” Your brain is protected from minor bumps by cerebral-spinal fluid and a leatherlike sack called the meninges, which surround and pad the soft brain tissue. A harder hit, however, can jolt the tissue and disrupt nor-

mal neuroactivity. It’s called a concussion. Most concussions heal on their own with time, but symptoms don’t always show up right away. Since MRIs and X-rays can’t detect a concussion, parents need to be especially vigilant. Signs of a concussion can include loss of consciousness, headache, sleepiness, anxiety or irritability, slurred speech and difficulty concentrating. If your teen sustains a blow to the head during a sporting activity, you might want to insist he or she comes out of the game or event for the remainder of the day. It’s also a good idea to insist that your teen wear a properly fitted protective helmet whenever possible. But in the end, said Dr. Tangco, parents should simply rely on their intuition: “Go with your gut. If you’re worried about your child, then take them to the doctor. You’re the best judge of your child, and it pays to err on the side of caution when it comes to concussions. They happen more often than we think.”
