City exploring amphitheater

June 15, 2018

Come Congrats to Class of 2018 Here The Weddings

by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

Work has begun on a feasibility study that will help determine what a new amphitheater and event center in southwest Brentwood will include. Community members met Monday with Johnson Consulting to discuss the first phase of the facility – an amphitheater that will occupy a portion of the 30-acre site near the intersection of Vineyard Parkway and Marsh Creek Road. The site overlooks the Marsh Creek State Historic Park and the John Mash Stone House and is near the site of the new Los Medanos College campus that broke ground earlier this year. About $7 million for the amphitheater has been set aside from development fees paid by Trilogy at the Vineyards, said Brentwood Park and Recreation Director Bruce Mulder. “The amphitheater is in a conceptual design phase,” said Mulder. “Initial conceptual designs anticipate an amphitheater with 300- to 1,000-seat capacity. Based on results of this feasibility study, the city will decide how to see Amphitheater page 26A

Parking a problem for eBART riders by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer

Most East County residents appear to love the new eBART Antioch service. That is, when they can find a parking spot. A flood of Antioch station parking complaints have rolled in alongside BART’s newest line between Antioch and the Pittsburg/ Bay Point station. “The lot fills up fast, and there’s a sign to go to Pittsburg Center if the lot is full – meaning, ‘get back on the freeway,’” said East County resident Jackie Diaz. “There is so much open land there, a parking garage should have been built before opening the station.” Up to 3,000 riders daily entered the Antioch station between

“ The only criticism left is this parking, and I will be darned if we are going to let this parking (situation) bring this project down. We are going to do something about it.

Joel Keller, BART board director May 26 and June 5, with only 1,006 parking stalls available, BART statistics show. BART Board Director Joel Keller said the station’s popularity has exceeded estimates, leading to the parking problems. But officials are working to find solutions. “You never know what is going to happen until you open a system,” Keller said. “The response has been tremendous.

People like the ride. The only criticism left is this parking, and I will be darned if we are going to let this parking (situation) bring this project down. We are going to do something about it.” The project’s environmental impact report forecasted 5,600 trips (2,800 each way), but numbers have jumped to as high as 8,297 trips thus far, according to BART statistics.

BART spokesperson Alicia Trost said the agency included as many parking spaces as it had money for at the Antioch station. “Parking garages cost $40,000 to $50,000 per space, and a garage was never in the mix because of the amount of funding available,” she said. The lack of available parking in the station’s first week prompted some to park illegally wherever they could find a spot, including in high grass prone to fire or areas blocking bike lanes, Trost said. The agency has since installed “No Parking” signs and barriers to curtail the activity, and Antioch Police Department announced that it will issue tickets and tow vehicles parked illesee Parking page 26A

The Brentwood City Council recently finalized the municipality’s five-year infrastructure and capital planning needs. The 166-page Capital Improvement Program document (CIP) lays out 66 city projects, 15 future improvement projects and 38 development improvement projects, totaling $230,698,269 for city projects. “The city’s Capital Improvement Program plans and provides for amenities and infrastructure core to the quality of life,” said Brentwood City Manager Gus Vina. Select priority projects tie into the city’s two-year strategic plan approved earlier this year. The projects include building a fire station on Shady Willow Lane, constructing a nonpotable water distribution system and two nonpotable water storage facilities, completing a community build-out plan and creating a Brentwood Business Development Center. All other projects unrelated to the strategic plan support the city’s mission statement of bringing Brentwood’s vision to reality, ac-

cording to the document. A handful of those projects include: building a 15,000-square-foot municipal service center at the public works corporation yard; expanding the wastewater treatment plant; installing at least four monuments at city entry points to improve the town’s identity; and expanding John Muir Parkway from Foothill Drive to Briones Valley Road. “The preparation of the CIP is a collaborative effort between staff from all departments,” said Sonia Agostini, city accountant. “It began many months ago, and it has culminated in the document.” The 7,000-square-foot fire station is planned for the northwest corner of Grant Street and Shady Willow Lane. Its $6,545,397 price tag will be covered using fire development impact fees. Fire board member Joe Young said the district hopes to determine how to staff the station during its strategic planning process. “The strategic plan will identify where, when and how much it will cost to staff for each additional station,” Young said. “The strategic plan will also address funding op-

State and federal grants will fund 35 percent of the $5 million project, and a loan will

cover the remaining 65 percent. “Construction of nonpotable water storage and distribution infrastructure is consistent with the state and city’s effort to promote water recycling for a more sustainable and resilient future,” said Public Works Director Miki Tsubota. “In particular, our projects are part of an ongoing effort to irrigate more of our existing public landscaping with nonpotable water instead of potable water.” The business development center is expected to encompass a co-working space for collaboration and training for the growing number of local entrepreneurs and smallbusiness owners. The municipal service center, a public works staff operations building, will include work areas, a locker room for crews and storage. The center is expected to increase operational efficiency by consolidating maintenance functions and streamlining operations, according to the document. A blend of development impact fees, enterprise funds and bond proceeds will cover the project’s $7,604,480 price tag. To view the complete plan, visit https:// goo.gl/jGtPXi.

Controversial WaterFix bill on the table by Tony Kukulich Staff Writer

A federal spending bill containing a provision that could spell disaster for opponents of the California WaterFix project passed an important hurdle when it was approved by the House Committee on Appropriations last week. The Fiscal Year 2019 Interior and Environment Appropriations bill, introduced by Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42), includes a rider identified as Section 437. If approved, the rider on page 141 of a 142-page document will exempt the California WaterFix project from state and federal judicial review. Since the spending bill’s introduction, another rider, authored by Congressman David Valadao (CA-21), was added that would also exempt the Central Valley Project and State Water Project from judicial review. Upon its introduction, the bill drew sharp criticism from a variety of tunnel critics on the state and national levels. Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Discovery Bay) expressed outrage at the proposed legislation and in a Faceook post called it an “attempted end run around states’ rights.” Frazier sent a letter to senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, stating that more than 20 court cases already filed would be negated, and urged them to oppose the rider. (See the full text of the letter here: https://bit. ly/2JAJ5nz.) In an email to The Press on Tuesday,

June 12, Tyrone Gayle, press secretary for Harris said, “Senator Harris is opposed to any efforts to subvert California’s rights and waive federal environmental laws through the elimination of judicial review. If this legislation advanced to the Senate, Senator Harris would want that provision stripped before its consideration.” If the bill is passed in its current form, project opponents will be denied an important tool in their fight to prevent the construction of the tunnels. “This is another attempt to force the illconceived tunnels proposal on Californians and undermine state and federal law – specifically those concerning the protection of our environment,” said Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA-9) in a press release. “Prohibiting the option for judicial review of the WaterFix environmental impact studies would eliminate a critical check in our system and help clear a path for the tunnels to proceed without further oversight. This provision has no place in a crucial funding bill and was dropped in as a last-ditch effort to circumvent the voices of Californians throughout the state who have said ‘no’ to the disastrous tunnels plan.” In an email to The Press, Calvert said that the project has already undergone more than a decade of analysis and review. Further, he expressed concern that, given the volume of environmental documents, “environmental obstructionists” could keep the project tied up in the courts into the foreseeable future. “Few infrastructure projects in the his-

“ This is another attempt to force the ill-conceived tunnels proposal on Californians and undermine state and federal law – specifically those concerning the protection of our environment.

Congressman Jerry McNerney tory of our nation have gone through as much scrutiny as the California WaterFix,” said Calvert. “After more than a decade of studies and more than 50,000 pages of environmental documents, all of the project’s stakeholders have had a plethora of opportunities to express their thoughts and concerns. The tough decisions about the California WaterFix have been made by Gov. Brown, democrat and republican legislators, and a host of water officials, and now we must move forward with the project. It’s long past time to give Californians the reliable water system they deserve.” Feinstein made her opposition to the rider known when she penned a letter to members of the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations, a copy of which was provided to The Press. She said, in part, “There are important questions with a profound impact on the fu-

ture of my state, and the answers of the project’s proponents should be tested to the full standards of our environmental law and by our independent judiciary. I urge you to reject the provision that would waive all federal and state laws for the WaterFix.” Meanwhile, Calvert fired back at critics in a letter to the editor of the Los Angeles Times. “...the language in my bill is indeed intended to blow up the roadblocks built by radical environmentalists who desperately want to kill a project that will provide a clean, reliable water supply for 25 million Californians,” wrote Calvert in his letter. Last week, a consortium of 10 environmental groups sent a letter to Attorney General Xavier Becerra in which they said that it was the “height of hypocrisy” to simultaneously tout the tunnels project as beneficial to the environment while eliminating the opportunity for judicial review. “Delta communities and the San Francisco Bay-Delta estuary deserve equal protection under the law,” said Barbara BarriganParrilla, executive director of Restore the Delta and a signee of the letter to Becerra. “These blatant attempts to thwart those protections are unconstitutional and immoral.” The bill will next move to the House for a vote. If it passes, it will move to the Senate where it will likely face strong opposition from Feinstein, the ranking minority member of the Appropriations Committee subcommittee on energy and water.

Marines swimming to the rescue by Aly Brown Staff Writer

A series of rather fortunate decisions recently led to the rescue of four individuals who would have drowned had it not been for the efforts of an Oakley Marine and his colleague. Pfc. Andrew Lucas, Freedom High School graduate, spent his 96 hours of base leave at home in Oakley and was making plans to return to Camp Pendleton in Southern California, Tuesday, May 29. Originally, he planned to leave at 6:30 a.m. via train and then take a bus to camp. But a last-minute decision to meet up with a friend and fellow Marine, Lance Cpl. Dustin Reed, in his hometown of Bakersfield before driving the last leg of the journey together gave Andrew more time to spend with his parents, Theresa and Tony. The family went out to breakfast before dropping him off at the Amtrak station later that morning. Once in Bakersfield, the Marines made a stop at the Kern River. “It was pretty hot, so we decided to take a dip in the river,” said Andrew. The two dipped their feet into the cool water, but when they felt the swift pull of the undertow, they decided to stay near the shore. That’s when they heard the screams upstream. “At first, we thought people were just messing around, having a good time, but as they kept going on, we figured it didn’t sound right,” he said.

From left Pfc. Andrew Lucas and Lance Cpl. Dustin Reed ended up at the right place at the right time Tuesday, May 29. The two had decided to stop by the Kern River and ended up saving the lives of four adults caught in the rapid current. The Marines decided to investigate and soon realized the shrieks were not playful but rather cries for help. The Kern River, which posts signs denoting the number of lives lost since 1968 (280 as of May 2017), was attempting to claim four more. Two men and two women in their 20s and 30s were caught in the rapids and attempting to save one another to no avail.

“The group was across the river, so (Reed and I) both ended up jumping in,” said Andrew, who noted they swam upstream in order to ride the current toward the distressed swimmers. “Reed was farther in front of me, and he was able to grab onto one of the family members, and I was able to get a little more upstream and grab onto part of a tree in order to

support the people.” Reed and Andrew handed the victims off to one another until each one was safely onshore. Rescue and news crew swept in as the Marines walked toward their vehicle, coming down from the adrenaline rush and still in shock. When approached for an interview, at first, they denied the request. “They didn’t want to make a big deal of it, but then the cameraman told them he was once a medic in Vietnam and encouraged them to share their story as many people drown in the Kern River,” explained Tony, who said his son told him about the incident by texting him a link to the news clip. Andrew’s proud parents believed their son’s change of plans put him in the right place at the right time. “He changed his plans so many times on how he was going to get back,” said Theresa. “It was meant to be.” Andrew recalled feeling the tremendous power of the water as he broke the surface and the shock of the incident once it was over. But in the moment, he said he saw only the task at hand and knew the right thing to do. “That Marine training of selflessness – of caring more about the safety of others over yourself came into play,” he said. “In the middle of it, you aren’t really thinking – you just get this tunnel vision on what you need to do.” To view a video, visit www.thepress.net/ multimedia

Spreading kindness in the wake of tragedy by Rick Lemyre Correspondent

There were only about 45 minutes left in the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas last Oct. 1 when gunfire erupted. A crowd of 22,000 country music fans scattered in panic, but more than 500 of them could not get out of the way of the hail of bullets raining down from the Mandalay Bay Hotel. Fifty-eight of them lost their lives. In Brentwood, a phone rang in the home of Valerie DePaola. Her daughter, Lindsey, was at the concert.

“She said she was calling to say goodbye, and then the phone cut off,” recalled Lindsey’s 17-year-old sister, Victoria. “We were in shock. We didn’t know if she was alive or dead.” An agonizing 10 minutes later, Lindsey sent a text saying she was hiding but not physically hurt. In the ensuing months, counseling has helped her deal with the post-traumatic stress disorder she suffered as a result of the incident. There was trauma to cope with for the see Kindness page 7A

rest of the DePaola family, too. When Lindsey sent Valerie a link covering a movement to honor those killed, she shared it with Victoria and their other sister Karissa, 13. The movement called #58randomactsofkindness was launched with the intent to spread kindness in the wake of the worst mass shooting in modern American history. Victoria and Karissa jumped on the idea as a way to deal with their feelings, and they began their own version of #58randomactsofkindness. The idea behind the movement is to memorialize each of the victims by doing something nice for someone in your own area, honoring each victim in a way specific to them. The girls read profiles of each victim (available at  https://goo.gl/MWtLHF) to get ideas for good deeds that would honor the fallen. They brought a tray of baked goods to the Brentwood Union School District board meeting in memory of special education teacher Sandy Casey from Manhattan Beach. They delivered baked goods to the Brentwood Lions Club to honor Brennan Stewart, a homebuilder from Las Vegas. Upcoming stops at local police and fire stations will honor first responders who died in the attack. Other acts are more random, such as paying for someone’s Starbucks order, preloading vending machines with quarters or handing out colorful flowers to brighten

Victoria DePaola someone’s day. Each act, however, is done in memory of one of the 58 who died. “We talk about them to get their names out again but associated with something good instead of something terrible,” said Victoria. Karissa said that searching for opportunities to do something positive has changed her. “It feels really good to know something good can happen,” she said. “It makes me look at the world differently.” Valerie said what the girls are doing has helped her deal with her own anger and what she called “a different reality after October first.” “I’m humbled by them,” she said. “I see my girls out there making a difference, and I say, ‘OK, Valerie. Get it together.’” For additional information or to make a contribution, contact the Brentwood Lions at 925-587-3783. To comment, visit www.thepress.net

NEW HOME MYTHS [PART I] For many years, we had literally NO new homes around here. Many builders had either stopped building or gone out of business because homes were selling for less than what it would cost to build them. That’s all changed now and there are many new homes to choose from. I’ll address some of the myths surrounding new homes in a series of articles. Myth #1 – “We’ll just look on our own first, then bring our agent in later.” Most new homebuilders are willing to pay a commission to your agent if you buy one of their homes. However, some have very strict policies regarding registration. This means that your agent will need to accompany you on your VERY FIRST visit to the models to register as your agent. I have had many clients that went to look at new homes on their own because they didn’t want to “bother” me. Their reasoning is that I had already spent many hours showing them resale homes and they felt bad about taking up more of my time.

They usually think that if they do decide to buy a new home, they can just tell the new home agent that they are working with me and everything will be fine. They are usually quite embarrassed later when they find out that by their signing in at the front desk without me, I cannot represent them as their agent. I always try to make it clear to my clients that I am happy to go with them to look at new homes, even if they are “just looking for fun.” It is actually helpful for me to check on the available inventory and get updated price lists. Some people think they can save money by going directly to the builder without an agent. I’ll talk about that next week as that is not always true.

Meet Cookie and Ruby Cookie and Ruby are 3 months old and brother and sister. Cookie is a gray male, and Ruby is a tuxedo female. They were found in a truck, which had been towed. It isn’t known if they were born in the truck or if their mom had moved them there. They have been in a foster home with other kittens, cats and a parrot since they were 2 weeks old. They are fun, love to play, jump and climb the cat tree. Both are good eaters and enjoy getting treats. We would like them in a loving home, together. They will need to be kept indoors at all times. If you are interested in these two beautiful kittens, contact foster mom Judy at anangelrn@ aol.com or 925-963-6824.

SHOULD I TRANSFER MY BANK ACCOUNTS INTO MY TRUST?

by Joan Grimes, Esq.

When I meet with clients, we always discuss whether bank accounts should go into their trust. Ideally, the answer is ‘yes!’ Here’s why: Reason #1: The most important reason is for incapacity planning. If your accounts are in your trust, a Co-Trustee can access the accounts to assist with your care if you experience a period of incapacity. As our clients need additional assistance, we encourage clients to appoint a Co-Trustee who can access these trust accounts to pay bills and provide support. Reason #2: You will also need to have a trust bank account if (or when) you or a Successor Trustee sells trust property. If you wish to sell property held in your trust, an escrow company will require that the funds be transferred to a trust bank account. Many clients often ask why they can’t just use a power of attorney to access non-trust bank accounts. While a power of attorney can be used to access non-trust bank accounts, financial institutions are often reluctant to allow someone to use the power of attorney to access an account numerous times. After several requests to withdraw funds, the financial institution may require a conservatorship to continue accessing the account. When advising clients on the process of transferring accounts into their trust, we warn this process needs to be done carefully, to ensure the accounts are transferred correctly. For example, we have recently discovered that some financial institutions are opening new accounts rather than transferring the existing account into the trust. This has created problems for our clients who have automatic deposits or bill-pay set up with their current account number. When our clients are considering transferring their accounts into their trust, we

generally provide the following options: Option #1: Work with your banks to transfer your accounts. To transfer an account, the financial institution will generally require a short application that must be signed and notarized. Just remember to check the account number to make sure your bank is transferring your account, not opening a new one! Option #2: Keep your account out of your trust. If you decide not to transfer an account into your trust, it is critical you check to make sure you have beneficiaries listed. (Note: If your account is in your trust, those funds will be distributed pursuant to the terms of your trust - not the listed beneficiaries.) Option #3: Open a new account in the name of your trust. If you are considering opening a new bank account, this is the easiest option. While the process of transferring accounts into the trust requires some additional effort, we still believe transferring the accounts is worth it. Sadly, we see many clients who have experienced periods of incapacity. Those clients that have transferred their accounts to their trust greatly reduce the burden on their families by allowing them to easily access their trust bank accounts. If you have any questions about this, I see people Monday through Friday for a FREE, 30-minute consultation in my Walnut Creek and Brentwood offices.

Gene Jennings

by Silky Sahnan, esq. How To Find The Right Family Law Attorney Are you thinking about hiring an attorney for your family law needs? If so, this article will help you make that decision as you take your next steps. The biggest items to consider when seeking an experienced family law attorney are: The Expense: Cost can be a big concern when hiring an attorney. Make sure you are aware of all legal fees and establish a financial plan around them. Consider working with the other party on attorney’s fees. Special Circumstances: Are there are any unusual or special aspects of your situation – for example, if your divorce involves dual business ownership or perhaps own several properties together. An attorney who

has experience with cases involving these issues is important to seek out. Comfort Level: It is so important you feel comfortable with your attorney. Your attorney’s job is to advise you and to represent your best interests. If you are not comfortable with your attorney, working together will make it very difficult for your attorney to do their job well. Ideally, you’ll both be in agreement regarding how your case is pursued and what the outcome will be. Your attorney’s experience level may contribute to your comfort. The best way to determine if an attorney is right for your matter is through a consultation. The Law Offices of Silky Sahnan offer a free consultation, so give them a call at 925-276-0789 or visit legalservicesca.com. – Advertisement

Trampolinist bounces toward Olympics by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer

When Oakley trampolinist Ruben Padilla was 5 years old, he proclaimed he wanted to go to the Olympics. Now 12 years later, he’s twisting and twirling closer to his goal. Ruben, a soon-to-be senior at Freedom High School, became a senior-level member of the U.S. Gymnastics team in January. He now battles with much stronger and older athletes, including past Olympians in national competitions, but he’s holding his own. Ruben knocked off past Olympian Logan Dooley en route to winning the trampoline competition at a regional event in Las Vegas in May. He also finished third in both the trampoline and double mini competitions at the Elite Challenge in Colorado. Competitors are judged on routine difficulty and execution, time of flight and horizontal movement. “His ability to learn new skills, his ability to be stable is what makes him special,” said Igor Sheyman, Ruben’s head coach. “His physical and mental abilities really allow him to be cool-headed, under control and allow him to always finish his routines. You can have really great trampolinists that, unfortunately, can’t handle the physical and psychological pressure of

competition as well as Ruben can.” His results are a hopeful sign for the future, but the youngster must continue to shine to reach his ultimate goal.

Ruben, who will compete at the junior level in international competitions for another year, will travel to Bolivia next week in an attempt to qualify the United

States team for the Youth Olympics in Argentina in October. If the United States is successful, Ruben will head to North Carolina to vie for one of two spots amongst nine competitors on the USA Youth Olympic team. With each triumph, Ruben stays in contention for a spot on the Olympic team. “Going to the Youth Olympics will put me in a really good spot to go to the Olympics,” Ruben said. Ultimately, Ruben said he will need to continue to improve his skills and the height of his jumps to ascend to the top. For now, he appears to be well on his way. He trains seven days a week for two to four hours a day at Tornado Acro-Gymnastics And Martial Arts Sport Club in Pleasanton. “This is his passion, his love. This is who he is,” said Nelia Padilla, Ruben’s mother. As one would figure, jumping and twisting 15 to 20 feet in the air daily comes with its share of downfalls. Ruben suffered countless minor injuries as a child and was forced to take a year off to nurse a bulging disk in his back in 2016. At one point last year, he competed in pain and struggled to breathe after see Trampolinist page 18A

Liberty fisherman earns another trip to world championship event by Michael Dixon Correspondent

Over Mother’s Day Weekend, Jared deFremery, who just completed his sophomore year at Liberty, partnered with teammate Miles Kaneko to win the 2018 Bass Pro Shops Fishing League Worldwide High School Fishing Clear Lake Open while also earning the The Bass Federation/FLW California State Championship. Representing the Delta Teen Team, deFremery and Kaneko finished first in the 72-team event in Clearlake, winning by nearly 2 pounds. Reaching the five-bass limit, deFremery and Kaneko weighed in at 19 pounds, 2 ounces. The secondplace team came in at 17 pounds, 10 ounces. “We weren’t really expecting to win it,” deFremery said. “We knew we had good fish going in the southern part of the lake. We happened to catch about three fish that were about 5 pounds each. We could see that a lot of people were struggling. When we had those three big bites, the wheels started turning.” The win helped the pair qualify for both the

2018 High School Fishing National Championship and the 2018 High School Fishing World Finals. Of course, while only two anglers are on the team, their success is far from a two-person effort. deFremery expressed appreciation for sponsors Frabill Fishing and Plano and other supporters. “I want to send a thank-you Barry Sterud, who runs our club. He gets us to fish in these tournaments and handles our paperwork,” deFremery said. The trip to the National/World Championships will be the second in as many years for this team. A year ago, it was not a trip that deFremery envisioned getting to make again, let alone only one year later. “When we did this last year, I thought it was a once-in-a-lifetime deal,” deFremery said. “Getting to go again is kind of surreal.” deFremery and Kaneko will leave for the National/World Championships on June 22. The event will take place from June 26 to 30 at Lake Pickwick in Florence, Alabama. To comment, visit www.thepress.net

Trampolinist from page 17A bruising his chest. Through it all, he’s bounced back after each obstacle. “I think more than anything it’s the passion he has for the sport,” said Nelia. “I really thought he was going to be done after the (back) injury he had. They offered him some scholarships for diving (after the injury), but he was never interested.” As Ruben soars to new heights, his parents are supportive every step of the way. The Padilla family estimates they’ve spent $15,000 on expenses this year alone. “I go day by day with him,” Nelia said. “I feel more than anything it has to

be about him. We just want to be there to support him during the good moments and the bad moments. It’s not going to be easy. This is the highest level of competition that he’ll be competing in.” Ruben knows ascending to the top of the sport won’t be easy, but if the past is any indication, he’ll land on his feet. “I just really want to go to the Olympics,” Ruben said. “That has been my goal ever since I started.” Ruben has launched a Sponsor.me to help offset the costs of his journey.

participation related to increasing costs to play and ever increasing dues for membership, one has to question why the USBC is taking steps to lower scoring. Happy players are scoring players, and scoring players spend money on beverages, food and equipment. Go figure. The bottom line here is scoring could be more problematic in the future. The second edict to manufacturers is to design their balls to conform to a new balance standard. Currently, balls must have no greater differential from side to side than 1 ounce. The new standard will be 3 ounces, and balls will no longer be permitted to have a ‘balance hole’ to achieve that standard. Some of you will notice when your ball is drilled there’s an extra hole to the right or left of your gripping span that was placed there after drilling to bring that differential within specifications. In 2020, balance holes will no longer be permitted, and any old equipment still in play with one must have it plugged. I don’t see that this will be a problem other than the additional cost to the players to keep their favorite ball. The added weight of filling the balance hole will, in most cases, still render a ball well under the 3 ounce limit. The reason for the mandate to eliminate the balance hole is widely accepted (while not admitted) to be an effort to put restraints on players with a

Just when you think there’s mass apathy among bowlers about the general goings on within the U.S. Bowling Congress (USBC), the powers that be in Texas issue an edict to the community and the ball manufacturers for a change – and the uproar has been Keglers deafening. The Rules and orner Specification Division of the USBC made changes to ball chemistry and drilling specifications that has set the game on its ear. First, after a two-year study of Duane ball motion and Wilson mechanics, the USBC has mandated that manufacturers ‘de-tune’ their reactive resin products to decrease the oil absorption rate of coverstocks. In short, they’re mandating that balls hook less. It’s been a fixture of the modern game to produce coverstocks with the greatest ‘hook potential.’ This potential has given drillers wide latitude to create layouts with mindblowing motion and hitting power. In conjunction with high-tech oiling machines that can put out patterns for play that direct the ball to the pocket, scoring has reached points never seen – points the USBC has now said are too high. In a sport with dwindling

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON THE RESOLUTION OF INTENTION TO ANNEX TERRITORY TO COMMUNITY FACILITIES DISTRICT NO. 5 CITY OF BRENTWOOD, COUNTY OF CONTRA COSTA, STATE OF CALIFORNIA Annexation #10 NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on May 22, 2018 the City of Brentwood (the “City”) duly adopted Resolution No. 2018-54 (the “Resolution of Intention”) wherein it declared its intention to Annex Territory to Community Facilities District No. 5, and the City Council determined, under and pursuant to the terms and provisions of the “Community Facilities Act of 1982,” being Chapter 2.5, Part 1, Division 2, Title 5 of the Government Code of the State of California (the “Act”), that the public convenience and necessity require that it commence proceedings to annex certain territory (the “Territory”) to Community Facilities District No. 5, City of Brentwood, County of Contra Costa, State of California (“CFD No. 5”) constituting certain parcels of land as listed in Exhibit A attached hereto. NOTICE IS HEREBY FURTHER GIVEN that Tuesday, the 26th day of June 2018, at the hour of 7:00 P.M. or as soon thereafter as the City Council may reach the matter, at the regular meeting place

of the City Council, at 150 City Park Way, Brentwood, California 94513, has been fixed by the City Council as the time and place for a public hearing to be held by the City Council to consider the proposed annexation of the Territory to CFD No. 5 and the levying of special taxes of CFD No. 5 within the Territory and all other matters set forth in the Resolution of Intention. At such public hearing any persons interested, including all taxpayers, property owners and registered voters within CFD No. 5 and within the Territory, may appear and be heard, and the testimony of all interested persons or taxpayers for or against the proposed annexation of the Territory to CFD No. 5 or the levying of special taxes of CFD No. 5 within the Territory or on any other matters set forth in the Resolution of Intention will be heard and considered. Any protests to the foregoing may be made orally or in writing by any such interested persons or taxpayers, except that any protests pertaining to the regularity or sufficiency of such proceedings shall be in writing and shall clearly set forth the irregularities and defects to which the objection is made; and the City Council may waive any irregularities in the form or content of any written protest and at such public hearing may correct minor

defects in such proceedings. All written protests shall be filed with the City Clerk on or before the time fixed for such public hearing, and any written protest may be withdrawn in writing at any time before the conclusion of such public hearing. Since there are less than 12 registered voters in CFD No. 5 or in the Territory, the Act provides that if the owners of one-half (1/2) or more of the area of land within CFD No. 5, or the owners of one-half (1/2) or more of the area of land within the Territory, file written protests against the proposed annexation of the Territory to CFD No. 5, and such protests are not withdrawn so as to reduce the value of the protests to less than a majority, then no further proceedings to annex the Territory to CFD No. 5 as proposed in the Resolution of Intention shall be taken for a period of one (1) year from the date of the decision by the City Council on the issues discussed at such public hearing. At the conclusion of such public hearing, the City Council may abandon the proceedings to annex the Territory to CFD No. 5 or may, after passing upon all protests, determine to proceed to call an election to submit to the qualified electors of the Territory the question of annexing the Territory to CFD No. 5 and authorizing the levy of special taxes of CFD No. 5 within

the Territory; and if the City Council determines at the conclusion of such public hearing to call such an election, the voting procedure at such election shall be by landowners in the Territory voting in accordance with the Act. NOTICE IS HEREBY FURTHER GIVEN that such public hearing may be continued from time to time, but shall be completed within thirty (30) days. NOTICE IS HEREBY FURTHER GIVEN that a copy of the Resolution of Intention and a copy of Annexation #10 Boundary Map showing the boundaries of the Territory are on file with the City Clerk at 150 City Park, Brentwood, California 94513, and are available for review there during business hours by any interested persons.

You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 916-939-0772 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site http://www.qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-17802144-BF.

Mulder said the consultant’s work will include examining what the market demand is for both the amphitheater and the event center as well as be sensitive to what exists in the area. “There are many considerations that will be analyzed as part of this study, including how the site will interface with the neighboring residential community, the LMC campus, the state park as well as how it fits into the overall vision for Brentwood,” he said. “The consultants will look at all of these considerations and provide guidance in these areas.” It is too early in the process to determine when the facility would be built, he added.

What to consider when shopping for rings

E

How the diamond is framed can affect how big it looks and even how much it sparkles.

ngagements precede wedding dresses, flower arrangements, limousines and even a couple’s

wedding vows, and no proposal is complete without a ring. Knowledge of rings and stones is essential for those who plan to propose in the near future. A recent survey from the wedding resource The Knot, in which 12,000 brides and 1,200 grooms in the U.S. were asked about their rings, found that people spend an average of $5,978 on engagement rings. Recognizing the potential cost of engagement rings can help ring shoppers prepare for their purchases. In addition to considering costs, couples can employ the following tips to shop with confidence. ♦♦ Cut costs with style. Engagement rings can be costly, but many couples feel they are worthwhile investments. According to “InStyle” magazine, a ring with a classic solitaire of 1-carat weight can cost thousands of dollars, while a band covered in just under 1 carat of tiny pavé diamonds will offer plenty of sparkle for a lot less money. ♦♦ Know your settings. How the diamond is framed can affect how big it looks and even how much it sparkles. Gems framed

Recognizing the potential cost of engagement rings can help ring shoppers prepare for their purchases. with a bezel can give the illusion of a larger stone. ♦♦ Get the desired cut. A skilled jeweler knows how to properly cut a stone to bring out its best radiance. From round to princess to emerald to marquise cut, styles can affect how the stone looks as well as

the price. ♦♦ Know ring metals. Platinum and gold are some of the most popular ring setting metals. Platinum costs considerably more than gold or silver but is long-lasting. Couples should weigh the cost versus benefit of splurging on a more expensive metal or

speak with a jeweler about a suitable substitute. ♦♦ Investigate personal style. A man should pay attention to the jewelry his girlfriend wears so the engagement ring complements her style. Some women love modern jewelry, while others gravitate toward vintage pieces. ♦♦ Come in under carat. Buying just shy of the next carat weight can save between 20 and 30 percent, offers The Knot. Plus, the size discrepancy probably will not be visible to the naked eye. ♦♦ Think about trading up. Some couples like to replace engagement rings with a more elaborate ring for a big anniversary. Some jewelers will accept the purchase of the engagement ring toward the price of a future ring. Jewelry stores are in the business of developing relationships with their customers. When purchasing engagement rings, couples can discuss their desires in regard to a ring as well as their budgets. – Courtesy Metro Creative

Saying yes to the dress now and forever BY H AY L E Y F I N E T T I

Y

our wedding day is a memory you will cherish forever. Part of making this day special is feeling confident in how you

look. Bridal trends in 2018 favor modernized styles while still honoring tradition. “Today’s brides look for off-the-shoulder wedding dresses, gowns with sleeves and lace gowns,” said Julie James, owner of J. James Bridal, located in downtown Brentwood. “Grooms tend to choose navy or gray tuxes. Mauve shades of pink and purple are popular colors for bridesmaids dresses.” New York City’s Spring 2018 Bridal Fashion Week showcased this year’s most popular national bridal trends. In its review of the event, The Knot reported that today’s brides may be interested in gowns layered with shades of blue, fashioning a dress fit for a queen. Ruffled bridal gowns are in, giving brides a more dramatic look, and gowns paired with a corset top are popular for fiancées hoping for a sexier style. Moreover, silhouette gowns coupled with classic necklines are re-establishing popularity in the bridal scene. Several of this year’s models walked down the runway spotlighting pearl embroideries, thin and nearly transparent gloves that transcend elegance, gowns embellished with beading and dresses emboldened by jaw-dropping bows. Additionally, this year’s Bridal Fashion Week demonstrated that brides interested in making a more dramatic impact sometimes forego the white wedding gown, opting for a black dress, or one with black accents.

Future husbands may also be attracted to tuxes with more intricate designs that forego the traditional flat tux in favor of those that include a textured pattern. This year’s grooms reject the solid-colored tie in search of stylish ties with bold patterns. In 2018, boutonnieres are characterized as having brighter flowers and forest additions such as branches and leaves to produce a more rustic accessory. Mikayla Furey, a local bride-to-be, is excited for her wedding later this month to Logan Thompson, an enlisted member of the U.S. Army. When she first began shopping for her dress, Furey focused on finding one that was “simple, clean, natural and not manufactured.”

“I wanted an organic, soft dress to complement my fiancé’s clean-cut dress blues,” she said. “I’ll be walking down the aisle in a bohemian-style off-the-shoulder gown with a loose-fitted skirt and a trumpet veil flowing down the back. I will be adding accessories from home to elevate the look and create a more personal connection to the dress. The simplicity of the gown pairs well with our morning ceremony.” Furey said her bridesmaids will wear blush pink gowns, while the groomsmen will don navy blue suits, supporting James’ insight that mauve dresses and navy tuxes are popular with bridesmaids and groomsmen. Luckily for Furey, whose initial price range while looking for a bridal gown was nothing over $1,000, the dress cost $800, a worth-it price for a dress that felt like her own the minute she laid eyes on it. According to WeddingWire, the average cost of a wedding gown is $1,050, with most brides spending between $400 to $1,700. Bridal gowns with more intricate stitching and embellishments tend to be more costly than simple sheath gowns. Looks enhanced by additional accessories such as veils, headpieces, necklaces, earrings, shoes and more lead to greater expense. Dresses fashioned by your favorite renowned wedding designer may put a dent in your budget. For couples looking to stay within a specific price range, WeddingWire suggests brides avoid trying on gowns that exceed their budget and to search for simple wedding dresses with few embellishments. Personal adornments can be added later. The source also promotes searching for bridal gowns sold at discounted prices – pursuing sample sales and trunk shows to start – and allowing ample time to find the perfect one. “When wedding dress shopping, it ultimately comes down to whatever option works best for the bride’s body type and what she feels most confident in,” said James. J. James Bridal is located at 625 First St., in Brentwood. For more information, call 925-420-3141.

ith wedding season officially in full swing, brides have a lot to

juggle planning their big day, while trying to stay on trend. This season, weddings are more personalized, creative and bold. Bouquets are taking a turn away from traditional and are becoming as unique as the bride who walks down the aisle. “Brides don’t want uniform and perfect flowers anymore,” said Steve Harland, owner of Good Scents Florist in Oakley. “They are looking for a more natural look.” According to Harland, succulent bouquets are very popular and offer unique textures and colors. Brides choose floral accents in bright colors, such as sunset orange, Kermit green or moonlight purple for contrast. “The free-form, hand-tied bouquets with succulents are gorgeous,” said Harland. Arrangements made without flowers are also trendy. “We have created bouquets with wheat, succulents, eucalyptus, Italian

Succulent bouquets are increasingly popular with brides and offer a fresh twist on a traditional look. ruscus and all greens,” said Harland. “They are great for renaissance or outdoor weddings.” One upcoming trend not only looks beautiful but also creates a heavenly scent. Herb bouquets made of kale, green hydrangea, fresh sage, rosemary and lavender create stunning bouquets. While Harland offers on-trend,

customized bouquets, he also specializes in classic bouquets and will cater to any bride’s preference and budget. “No flower is underrated or overrated,” he said. “We can create something beautiful with carnations, daisies, roses or any type of flower. There is something for every budget.” Besides flowers, there are several

other design and entertainment elements trending this season. Instead of decorating tables with floral arrangements, some brides and grooms are opting for large balloon displays that add a creative visual element. According to Tom Gregory, owner of Got A Party in Brentwood, custom linens are also popular. “We have beautiful custom linens with sequins this season,” said Gregory, who also offers tables and chairs for any size wedding party. Gregory is seeing more margarita machines at receptions as well as activities to entertain the kids. “A lot of brides and grooms are renting carousel bounce houses and things to occupy kids during receptions,” he said. “Wedding parties are renting equipment for movie nights and things to create a kids’ area, so adults can have their fun while the kids are being entertained.” Good Scents Florist is located at 3513 Main St., in Oakley.

Picking the right spot AMY SCHRADER

O

ne of the most important decisions brides and grooms make when planning their

wedding is choosing a venue. This season’s hottest venue trends put a new twist on backyard weddings and transports guest to tropical locations. For those choosing a venue in their own yard or small outdoor space, backyard weddings are moving from barn-inspired to bohemian. The overall vibe is still relaxed but less rustic and more elevated. Adding deep colors, rich textures and boho-inspired accents help to achieve the boho vibe. Another trend for venues this season is destination weddings, where entire wedding parties travel together to a location, cruise or resort. “Destination weddings are especially accommodating for couples steering away from the traditional wedding,” said Kim Bellinghausen, travel advisor and land and cruise specialist at Cruise Planners – Discovery Bay Travel. “Destination weddings can be custom tailored to brides’ and grooms’ desires, can be formal or casual and all aspects of the planning can be taken care of so all the bride and groom have to do is show up.” According to Bellinghausen, some of

the most popular wedding locations include Hawaii, Mexico and the Caribbean. “Places with warm, sunny weather, beautiful beaches and beautiful scenery for photos are the most popular locations,” she said. According to Frances Peterson, owner of SunnysideUp Travel in Brentwood, there are also some unusual locations brides and grooms are choosing to tie the knot. “One of the most unusual venues are cenotes,” said Peterson. Cenotes are often part of a network of rivers and caves, formed by the collapse of limestone bedrock. They form beautiful swimming holes encased in limestone caves. “There are lush tropical areas surrounding the cenotes, which gives off a magical atmosphere. It is also very fun for everyone to be able to swim in a cave,” said Peterson, who also recommends all-inclusive resorts for destination weddings. “These are popular because once the guest pays for their package, everything is included and they don’t have to worry about additional expenses. These resorts are also very affordable, as the bride and groom want their family and friends to come but don’t necessarily want to burden them with an expensive trip.” According to Peterson, there are many benefits to working with a travel agent when planning a destination wedding. “There are a lot of components that go into planning a destination wedding, and those not familiar can turn what should

Travel agents also have access to exclusive travel promotions at select destination resorts all year long and can help plan and customize the entire trip. “I arrange all aspects of the bride and groom and their wedding party’s travel, including flights, hotels, transportation and even tours and excursions to do before or after their wedding day,” said Bellinghausen. “I plan customized trips at no extra cost to the

consumer.” Cruise Planners – Discovery Bay Travel is located at 5778 Woodland Court, in Discovery Bay.

Productions, utilizing each of their special skill sets in wedding planning. “They catered to every single need and want we had,” said Oakley resident Xan Halog, who married Jennifer AsplinHalog at the venue in June. “Their No. 1 priority was for us to walk away feeling like our wedding was the best experience we could have ever dreamed of.” The ladies of 3 Generation Event Productions believe their success is a combination of having the right venue and their combined experience. “There are a lot of beautiful venues, but no one touches our service,” said Renee. “Between all of us, we offer over 100 years of combined experience working on events and weddings, spread amongst three generations.” Together, they work to bring each bride and groom’s vision to reality. “There isn’t any type of event or wedding we can’t do,” said Theresa. “Brides and grooms pick and design what they want, and we make it happen.” While planning their event, Renee and Theresa work to ensure every detail is met. “We don’t want anyone to lose sleep for any issues, big or small,” said Renee, who added that Theresa would pick up her phone at midnight to discuss details with a bride or groom. “We want them to feel like kings and queens throughout the entire process, to feel stress-free and, most importantly, to feel loved.”

People’s jaws drop when they see the property. The property is magical, breathtaking and stunning. – Renee Bragg, co-owner of 3 Generation Event Productions Many brides and grooms who get married at La Grande Wedding & Event Center consider the Bragg family part of their own after they tie the knot. “Renee and Mama T make you feel so special,” said Oakley resident Rosa Councell. “They genuinely care to make each wedding an incredible experience from the moment you meet them and allow you to enjoy the planning without having to worry. Everything came together better than we ever imagined.” La Grande Wedding & Event Center is located at 1799 Carpenter Road, in Oakley.

Food trends for the big day

W

H AY L E Y F I N E T T I hen you dream of your perfect wedding, several factors help shape that

special day – the ideal dress and tux, the right venue and ambiance, and, of course, the food. What food do you envision front and center at your reception? Brides.com reports there are numerous food options for weddings, and the happy couple can choose from different formats, including sit-down, buffet-style, family-style, cocktail-style and more. Food trucks are

becoming an increasingly popular choice. “People want something more rustic and casual, instead of formal sit-downs,” said Ron Arguello, owner of Soleil Wood Fired Pizza, a Brentwood food truck. “We cater about 12 to 15 weddings per year, with people booking weddings a year and a half in advance.” According to Arguello, at these events, the family-run business serves everything buffet-style, with unlimited pizza for $15 per person along with both a salad bar ($5 per person) and an antipasti bar ($12 per person).

it’s immediately known

that they got married. But just when and where does the term “tying the knot” come from? The phrase is steeped in tradition, though its origins remain open for debate. One origin story states that tying the knot can be traced back to the Roman empire, when brides wore girdles that were tied in knots, and the groom had to eventually untie those knots to consummate the marriage. Tying the knot also may be traced to the custom of handfasting. The marriage contract was established between a bride and a groom by joining their hands together and tying them. Although

“Our food trucks allow us to serve large capacity crowds with more kitchen capabilities in venues where a full-service kitchen is not available,” she added. As the catering facilitator, Danberry fulfills the bride and groom’s vision for their special day. “We start with a private consultation to design menu options to suit every taste and budget – to discuss not only their favorite foods but their expectations for this monumental day,” she said. “As facilitator, I’m on hand to help with the planning and execution of every event.” With a variety of creative options to choose from, today’s bride and groom can feel confident that their wedding menu will be unique and flavorful. Soleil Wood Fired Pizza is based in Brentwood. For more information, contact soleilwfp@comcast.net or call 925-2343681. American Heroes Smokehouse is located at 8610 Brentwood Blvd., Suite A, in Brentwood. For additional information, contact heroessmokehouse@gmail.com or call 925-513-5300.

American Heroes Smokehouse is sought out for catering a variety of events. Pricing starts at $15 per person for lunch and $20 per person for dinner. “We’ve only been open for a couple months, but we’ll soon be booked to cater many weddings,” said Aaron Lockhart, American Heroes Smokehouse owner and chef. Joanne Danberry, American Heroes Smokehouse California business director and catering facilitator, said they offer a 20 percent discount to veterans and active-duty personnel along with a 10 percent discount for emergency services personnel in all of their restaurants. “For catering, while we do not provide a flat percentage discount to veterans and emergency personnel, we do throw in extras and special touches that vary with each unique bride and groom,” Danberry. “For all our customers, we work carefully within their set budget to produce the wedding of their dreams.” Danberry revealed that a food truck for the Brentwood area is in the works.

accounts vary as to whether the hands were tied only during the ceremony or later, this is believed to be an ancient renaissance or Celtic tradition. Others speculate that the phrase traces its origins to Hindu weddings in which brides and grooms tied a necklace of flowers as part of wedding tradition. Yet another theory suggests that the phrase can be traced back to the knotted string that supported beds prior to the use of metal springs. Therefore, in order to make a marriage bed, couples first needed to tie the knot. In one unity tradition, couples may braid or knot together three strands, with one representing the bride, one symbolizing the groom and the third representing God as they join together in faith. – Courtesy Metro Creative

details as they plan their weddings. As if selecting a photographer or choosing the right appetizers isn’t challenging enough, some unknown variables are sure to pop up on the big day as well. Couples can take their cues from others who have walked the aisle before them with these tricks of the trade to help the day go smoothly. ♦♦ Host everything at a single location. Couples who want to simplify their wedding day can select a site that can host the ceremony and reception and also house guests. The cost of such facilities may be more affordable than couples think, as transportation costs will be minimal and the venue may offer discounts on group packages. ♦♦ Think about a day coordinator. Couples who cannot afford a wedding planner to handle all of the details often find that a day-of-service provider is within their budget. This person can handle all of the

offer a bigger tip than anticipated to the wait staff or deejay who went above and beyond. ♦♦ Learn how to bustle. Walking around with a free-flowing train all day can become tiring for brides. Brides should make sure that one person practices how to bustle the train and will step in to do so for the reception. Also, it may not be the height of fashion, but having a garbage bag on hand can keep the train clean during inclement weather or if the bride has to trek across grass or soil for photo opportunities. ♦♦ Give an outgoing person a job. Enlist a boisterous friend or family member to wrangle guests for photo opportunities. They can be the photographer’s helper and give the happy couple one less thing to do. ♦♦ Stock the bathroom. Some venues will have courtesy items for their guests, but couples also should bring their own necessities, such as breath mints, toothpaste, extra pantyhose, hairspray, lip gloss or sanitary pads. ♦♦ Be all smiles. Couples can’t predict everything that will happen on their wedding day, but they can help create the mood. Smiling couples can make things better for everyone, even when zippers break or someone gets the chicken instead of the salmon. – Courtesy Metro Creative
