Four-alarm fire under investigation by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer Inspectors combing through the rubble of a four-alarm blaze that destroyed 250 vehicles at a Brentwood auto dismantler Sunday said the District Attorney’s office is considering filing charges in connection with conditions at the site. Randy Sawyer, director of the county’s Hazardous Materials Program, said the violations found in a post-fire inspection of the Continental Auto Recyclers on Brentwood Boulevard probably did not contribute to the intensity of the fire, which caused the evacuation of 50 residents and forced about 150 others to shelter in place for several hours. The violations included open 300-gallon drums containing mixed oil and anti-freeze, shipping labels bearing incorrect ID numbers, and a lack of documentation on how materials such as anti-freeze were disposed of. Also, a mandatory site map showing where various materials were kept on the grounds was inaccurate, Sawyer said, which could have posed a danger for firefighters. There were

Sawyer added that the “sloppy” conditions at the site could have meant other violations were present that might have contributed to the fire, but evidence of any such conditions, if they existed, had been destroyed by the flames. “The DA is considering pos-

sible actions” regarding the conditions that were found, Sawyer said. “Nothing has been decided at this point.” Louis Kidwell, chief building official for the City of Brentwood, said the city’s code enforcement department had inspected the property just days before the fire and had drawn up a list of viola-

tions of its own, although they were related to storm-water contamination and not likely contributors to the fire’s intensity. They included problems with improper storage of car batteries and the lack of containment facilities for the draining of oil and anti-freeze

Roads, police among school-site concerns by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Unsatisfied with the completeness of the Liberty Union High School District’s draft environmental impact report for the proposed fourth high school, the city of Oakley submitted a letter of concerns on Monday to identify issues the city believes were not adequately addressed in the initial report. After reviewing the 225-page document, city staff reported to the council last week that while the report identifies significant impacts from the construction of the high school at the intersection of Delta Road and Sellers Avenue, the report failed to explain how funding would be handled for needed improvements to reduce environmental impacts. In the letter to LUHSD Director of Project Development Wayne Reeves, the city wrote: “We feel it is imperative that LUHSD include the fund-

ing to provide necessary infrastructure and emergency services in its bond measure as an integral part of constructing the high school campus.” The city also wrote to the district with concerns about “squishy” language used in the report. While significant impacts were identified, such as the need to expand various roads in Oakley to alleviate traffic congestion, there was no mention of

who will be responsible for the improvements. Oakley Senior Planner Ken Strelo said if the EIR is approved and no mitigation is specified, then no one is responsible for the necessary improvements and the roads might not be expanded in time, leading to traffic congestion as soon as the school opens its doors. The district states that it will contribute to improvements “if funding is available” but there is no mention of how things will be handled if no is funding available – implying that it might be up to the city of Oakley to foot the bill. “This will be a traffic hazard waiting to happen,” said Mayor Carol Rios. “This is a matter of safety for the students, parents and teachers. … It doesn’t work to say we would if we could.” In other cases, the report clearly identifies Oakley as the party responsible for funding improvements such as with the widening of Delta see School site page 18A

Community funding in place for YMCA by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer The Delta Family YMCA in Oakley has reached its community fundraising goal of $400,000, bringing the organization one step closer to its much-anticipated $6.4 million expansion. “This is just great news,” said Mike Erwin, president and CEO of the Delta Region YMCA. “These are significant dollars that have been raised, especially in this challenging economic environment. I’ve been very impressed by the (overall) efforts to raise these dollars. Things are moving ahead.” In order to qualify for the matching bond monies to build the new facility on O’Hara Avenue, the YMCA was required to raise a total of $400,000 in local financing. Just a few months ago only $88,000 had been committed to the project, but since then Supervisor Federal Glover was able to secure $100,000 through a federal stimulus package. Additional dollars include a $5,000 donation from Sutter Delta Medical Center, $200,000 from the Bechtel Corporation, and $20,000 from Garaventa Enterprises. Working in conjunction with the Special Kids Foundation – an organization dedicated to special-needs children and their families – the new 25,000-square-foot facility located on 6.4 acres will house services, therapies and programs for the special needs and general population of East County. The plan calls for aerobics, cardiovascular and strength-training facilities, as well as a health and fitness center, family therapy pool, multi-generational technology center and community gathering place. A demonstration and nutritional teaching kitchen will also be housed there, as will a child care facility. But perhaps the biggest boost to the combined new facility will be the addition of an all-abilities playground for children with limited physical disabilities. The emphasis on the playground, and the facility in general, will be inclusion,

family and a healthy lifestyle. Features will include water play areas, sensory integration centers, wheelchair lifts, large wooden playhouses and shaded spaces. SMF Construction, owned by Oakley City Councilman Jim Frazier, will be donating the construction of the playground, and the Special Kids Foundation will be paying for the equipment, which is expected to cost around $750,000. In turn, the City of Oakley, which owns the YMCA property, has agreed to maintain the playground in perpetuity. “We are anxiously awaiting the approval of the (matching) financing and a quick start,” said Frazier. “Once that happens we can begin grading (on the playground) and get some sticks in the ground. We’re all very excited.” The remainder of the financing will come from the Mt. Diablo YMCA Association, the organization’s parent corporation, along with bond financing gathered from local banks

and financial institutions. The community fundraising end of the project was a necessary first step in the process because it serves as a kind of collateral for the bonds, according to Judith Parker, VP of financial development for the Mt. Diablo Region YMCA. Proposals for the bond dollars have already been submitted to a variety of institutions, and await approval. Once bond financing is secured, construction on the facility can commence and could be completed in 12 months, although the more likely scenario is that the project will be built in phases, said Erwin. “Our goal is to build as much as we can as soon as we can,” said Erwin. “It’s a kind of fits and starts thing sometimes with projects like this, but now that we’ve been able to secure a community commitment, we can begin working on our time line. We’re ready to get on with it.”

ART

Art director honored at retirement by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

Like many artists, Ron Beatty enjoys applying paint to a canvas to create a 2D impression of a 3D scene, whether it’s a lighthouse, a wharf, harvesters or a barn. But for several years Beatty’s canvas has also been the city of Brentwood itself, which he has helped beautify as a city arts commissioner and a cofounder of the Brentwood Art Society. Since moving to Brentwood nine years ago after retiring from a job in southern California building nuclear submarines, bombers and fighter jets, Beatty and his artistic cohorts have worked to secure funding from new development and held their own fundraisers to provide public art in city parks, art displays at the Brentwood Tech Center, poetry readings at Gabby’s Grind, art education and supplies in local schools and the annual Art, Wine & Jazz Festival. Now 77, Beatty decided it was time to retire from the art society board. “I was on it for seven years and figured that was long enough and we need new people to get in there and do the job,” he said in a phone interview. “I still go to meetings, and I can speak my mind and make comments, but can’t vote on any issues – and that’s fine with me.” Society members celebrated him last week at Sweeney’s restaurant with a

Koncher. “You have been an advocate of art for children. Many of your contributions continue to this day and are enjoyed and appreciated throughout the community. We just want to say thanks for making this a more beautiful place.”

Beatty said he’s been a longtime Sunday afternoon painter and decided to apply for an opening on the Brentwood Arts Commission after his wife died and he had time on his hands. He’s proudest of having written the arts ordinance in 2003 that secured a percentage of the fee on every new house built in the city for public art projects. He believes there’s still about $400,000-$500,000 in that fund. He’s enjoyed his stint as an art director. “It’s a great town,” he said. “Working with the commission has been wonderful, it really has. I got more out of than I think I gave.” But even in his second retirement, Beatty is working on his next project: some kind of public commemoration for Bill Bristow, a longtime Brentwood educator who died recently. “I will keep busy and keep painting, doing those kinds of things,” he said. “(But) when you start pushing 80, you have got to slow down.” The Brentwood Art Society is seeking new members as it embarks on plans to determine its course for the next five years – a plan that might include providing an arts center in Brentwood. Annual membership costs $10 for students and seniors, $25 for adults and $50 for families.

Report: Health care may face catastrophe Staff Writer East County’s health care system is in bad straits, like a patient who suffers a heart attack, falls out of the back of the ambulance on the way to the hospital, gets run over by several cars, and gets to the hospital only to be told to go home and take two aspirin. That’s the impression created by a recent report by East County health care providers on the state of access to care for the uninsured, a number that is increasing significantly as people lose their jobs in the ongoing recession. The report, “Impact of the Economy on Health Access in East Contra Costa County,” contains words such as “dire,” “disturbing,” “stress,” “depression,” “staggering” and “desperate.” “Health systems are facing potentially catastrophic consequences from the exploding demand and potential shrinking of resources,” states the report’s authors, comprised of leaders of Contra Costa Health Services, John Muir Health, Kaiser Permanente, La Clinica de la Raza, Planned Parenthood Shasta Diablo and Sutter Delta Medical Center. “The economy will continue to slow and the number of unemployed will continue to rise for at least a year. Rising unemployment means more and more peo-

ple losing health coverage for themselves and their families. Despite (health care providers’) best efforts, current strategies for addressing the increased need are inadequate. Patients are sicker and more desperate.” According to County Administrator David Twa, unemployment in the county could increase to 12 percent from the current 9.3. Just 20 months ago unemployment in the county was under 5 percent – at a time when health care providers were complaining about the difficulty in keeping up with the need. There are numerous examples of how the situation has worsened since then: • Medi-Cal applications in the county are up 76 percent in 2008 over 2007. • New patients in the county health system are up 30 percent over last year. The number of active primary-care patients in the county system has increased 50 percent in five years. • Contra Costa County’s budget deficit, projected over a 15-month period into next year at $56 million, is forcing the county health department to cut $19.5 million from its budget. • La Clinica has seen a 15-percent increase in patients and visits in the last six months compared to the previous year. • Planned Parenthood in Antioch saw a 16 percent increase in patients in March over the previous March, and in Pitts-

According to the report, there have been a few other encouraging developments on the health care front: • Contra Costa Health Services has improved its appointment system, providing 1,200 more appointments per month at its eight health centers in the county, including one in Brentwood and another in Antioch. • John Muir Health treats more than a dozen people on most Saturday mornings at its Mobile Health Clinic service in Brentwood and far East County. The patients are usually Spanish-speaking, low-income and often undocumented. The clinic operates at other sites in East County during the week in conjunction with the county Health Care for the Homeless program. • Kaiser Permanente subsidizes health coverage for more than 14,000 lowincome residents in East and Central County, including medical, dental and vision care for 2,555 low-income children. • Sutter Delta Urgent Care Clinic offers a drop-in clinic serving uninsured people from 6 to 10 p.m. daily. The report concludes by suggesting other strategies for improving care, including supporting La Clinica’s expansion efforts, recruiting more volunteer doctors providing free care and increasing the outreach to the uninsured on their health care options.

burg the patient load was up 11 percent. • Nearly 10 percent of patients hospitalized at Sutter Delta Medical Center in Antioch in 2008 were uninsured, compared to 6 percent in 2007. An increasing number of patients lacking insurance don’t pay their hospital bill. Many people treated at Sutter’s emergency room have non-emergency conditions that could have been addressed by a primary care doctor. • Kaiser Permanente has seen a dramatic increase in patients receiving charity care. The main piece of good news in the gloomy report is the plan by La Clinica to open a primary-care facility in far East County. “With a grant from John Muir/ Mt. Diablo Community Health Fund, the organization is engaged in a fasttrack planning effort to determine the appropriate location,” the report states. La Clinica Communications Specialist Janet Luna in a phone interview Wednesday was unable to say when and where the new facility might be provided. “At the moment the plans … are still very premature,” she said. “It’s in the works. Conversations and discussions are happening with stakeholders, but nothing is confirmed yet.” La Clinica currently operates a facility on Gladstone Road off Leland Road in Pittsburg that mostly serves East County’s Hispanic community.

NEW LOAN DISCLOSURE RULES There are some new rules that are about to go into effect in regards to the disclosures you get when you apply for a loan. In the short-run these rules may cause some headaches to borrowers and lenders alike as it could delay close of escrow a few days, but overall I actually like these changes in the long-run for our industry. To better explain these changes, let me loosely define some terms. EFFECTIVE RATE = The rate your lender quotes you when you ask “What’s the rate?” APR = Stands for “Annual Percentage Rate.” This is the “true” cost of borrowing. It takes into account not only the interest rate on your principal, but loan fees, as well. It will be higher than the effective rate. GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE (GFE) = This is a written estimate of your rate, terms and fees that your lender is supposed to give you within three business days of you applying for a loan. Up to now, there wasn’t much to prevent an unscrupulous lender from quoting low rates/fees on the GFE, only to spring

much higher rates/fees on the borrower at the closing table. At that point, the borrower doesn’t want to risk blowing the deal to start over, so they usually just sign the papers. (I have never experienced this, nor heard of this happening around here. But I’m sure it happens somewhere.) Well, starting 7/30/09, if the APR on the initial GFE is off by more than .125% compared to the loan papers the borrower is signing, the lender must provide the borrower with a new GFE and a three business day right to rescind their application. In addition, a lender can’t charge any upfront fees (other than credit report) until the borrower has received the initial GFE.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

APR The annual percentage rate, or APR, for either a first time home buyer, or an individual looking for their next home, is truly one of the most useful tools setup in their favor - “it’s purpose was to allow consumers to shop for credit by comparing the fine print,” according to an article in United States Banker. The annual percentage rate is important as it allows consumers to compare apples to apples, or even apples to oranges. If of course we consider apples to equal fixed rate loans, and oranges to represent adjustable rate mortgages, or ARMS. It is essential when comparing loans/interest rates and should not be overlooked. As part of The Federal Truth in Lending Act of 1968, the annual percentage rate is calculated much differently than the actual note rate and can always be found on your Truth in Lending disclosure. While the note rate simply represents the yearly rate at which your lender will collect interest for permitting you to borrower money for a specific length of time, your APR represents the total cost of credit on a yearly basis after all charges – points, appraisal, credit report, processing, etc - are taken into consideration. It is typically higher than your actual interest rate because it includes these additional items and assumes you will keep the loan to for the full term. Let’s look at how APRs are calculated. For our illustration we will assume a note rate of 5.50% on a fixed rate loan. On a 30 year term, and a loan amount of

$150,000, the monthly payments would be $851.68. In order to calculate the APR for this loan we would first subtract out the fees; $1500 (one point), $425 for the appraisal, $500 for processing and $16.50 for a credit report. $150,000 minus $2441.50 equals $147,558.50. This new figure of $147,558.50 would reflect on our Truth in Lending disclosure as the amount being financed, when in fact we are borrowing $150,000 … here is where APR comes into effect. We take the new figure of $147,558.50 and use it as our present value/loan amount to determine the true cost of the loan. By working the equation backwards until we receive the same $851.68 monthly payment as if the loan amount were still $150,000, we come up with our annual percentage rate. In this case the figure is 5.65%, making our annual percentage rate (APR), or, the true cost of the money being borrowed, 5.65%. Remember, when sifting through the “fruit basket of loans”, although the lowest note rate might look like the shiniest apple, that fruit could very well be rotten on the inside. The APR is the figure you should be most interested in, it is the only way to truly compare the cost of one loan versus another, and was put in place to protect you.” If you have any real estate lending related questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to write me at tfreymortgages@yahoo.com or call me directly on my new cell phone, (925) 726-1444. – Advertisement

Contra Costa heads back to state fair by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Contra Costa is a great county, and Brentwood resident Debbie Spinola is so sure it’s the best county in the state that she’s going to the fair to prove it. For the first time in five years, Contra Costa County will be represented at the California State Fair next month in Sacramento. The county will operate an exhibition booth featuring the historical, artistic and recreational features unique to the region. “We’re an amazing county. We have a lot of history here, from C&H Sugar and Chevron to John Marsh and John Muir,” said Spinola, who grew up in Martinez, the county seat. “We have a lot to offer; it’s very exciting.” The Counties Exhibit, as it’s called, is both a display and contest in which the state’s 58 counties are invited to compete for bragging rights – along with thousands of dollars in cash prizes – by building individual 16x16 display booths on the fairgrounds. Presentations are often elaborate and

ornate, said Spinola. Past displays have included miniature versions of the Golden Gate Bridge, Sonoma wine barrels enclosed in glass cases and enormous Santa Cruz ocean waves ridden by a surfer. As part of the competition, each county designates an organization as its benefactor should it win some prize money. Spinola said Contra Costa’s designee would be the UC Extension Program, which includes the popular 4-H organization and Master Gardeners groups. “Some counties win literally hundreds of thousands of dollars,” said Spinola. “It’s a big amount, but it’s also a big project. Right now, we’re just concentrating on pulling it all together.” And fast. The deadline of Aug. 14 looms large, and Spinola – who said work on the county entries usually begins in April – admits there’s much to be done. And because no funding is available, requiring the group to rely on volunteers, time is of the essence. “It’s a huge project, and we just received approval (from the County Board of Supervisors) at the end of June, so we’re just trying to gather volunteers and supplies at this point,” said Spinola. “We’re working with B.A.L.T. (Brentwood Agricultural Land Trust) and Harvest Time and the local hissee Fair page 9A

Keeping A Place of Learning alive by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Despite a $500 donation from the Brentwood Police Officer’s Association earlier this month, A Place of Learning is struggling to keep its doors open. The community tutoring facility, which for three years has been providing extra academic assistance to students of all ages, is barely making ends meet. Even with the latest donation from the police association, founders Bill and Donna Foster have only enough funds to keep the nonprofit running through August. To save money, A Place of Learning cancelled its summer programs, taking the time off to regroup and clean out the facility on Orchard Drive in Brentwood. “In the past, our greatest need has been more tutors,” Bill said. “But now we need money even more than volunteers. We need money to exist, and things are tight now. If anyone is willing to give us a million dollars, we’ll gladly take it, but at this point, even a dollar helps.” Bill said he receives $20 here and $50 there, and some people make monthly donations. But in the current troubled economy, it’s difficult to find $2,000 each month to pay Director Laura Guzman, the organization’s only employee, plus utility bills. (Building rent is only $1 per year, courtesy of the County Housing Authority.) Fortunately, local businesses have stepped in to help cover maintenance costs this summer. McCauley Brothers Termite & Pest Services sprayed down the building inside and out to remove bugs, and Dependable Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning spruced up the carpeting for free to help get the building ready for the upcoming school year. The greatest challenge for A Place of Learning is that it’s ineligible for most grants because the organization needs the funds for operating costs rather than programs and supplies. Most grants are not awarded to cover operational costs. “We’ve never been anxious (before) about getting money for this place,” said Donna. “It’s just a sign of the times. People are struggling. Family incomes are dropping. People are watching every penny, and it’s more difficult to give back these days.” Despite the obstacles, A Place of Learning will reopen on Aug. 3 and keep its regular hours of 3 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The Fosters founded the organization as a way to unite students-in-need with community members looking to share their knowledge. What started out as a group of four students and four tutors has blossomed into an organization of more than 50 tutors, each of whom donate at least an hour of their time each week. Bill said anyone who wants to help is qualified to be a tutor. The age range of tutors spans 12 to 85, and students range from kindergarten kids to a 52-year-old who wanted to learn to read. “A lot of times people don’t think they’re qualified to be a tutor, especially the older

deeply as I do here.” Bill said he’ll do whatever it takes to keep A Place of Learning open, even if he must beg and plead, because he knows how many kids have benefited from the program. His wife Donna remains optimistic as well. “There are all kinds of ways to interact through A Place of Learning,” Donna said. “Goodness spreads. Your generosity, whether it is time or money, will not be wasted.” A Place of Learning is located at 315 Orchard Drive in Brentwood.

‘Steppin’ Out’ for a pair of causes by Samie Hartley Staff Writer When Alivia Logan was asked to star in a performance of “Steppin’ Out” at the Byron United Methodist Church to raise money for the music ministry, she jumped at the opportunity. But the event will be more than one more item added to her resumé. While the church will use the proceeds to renovate the choir room, it will also donate some of the proceeds to help send Alivia, 18, to University of the Pacific in the fall. She plans to major in vocal performances with an emphasis in opera. “I’m really excited to have this opportunity,” Alivia said. “I love to entertain, and I’m honored that the church will help me pay for school. Performing is what I love. It’s so overwhelming – I’m so full of joy when I get to sing on stage.” “Steppin’ Out” is a two-part show that features Broadway show tunes and inspirational Christian songs. Alivia will be joined on stage by Rose Marie Forment, Nancy Torres, Bill Flanery and Alexis Easton, pas-

Finally A Breakthrough Treatment For Severe Foot And Leg Pain …

Do You Suffer from these Seven Symptoms of this Often Misdiagnosed Pain? Tens of millions suffer from this pain, and often don’t know where to turn to get relief… The problem is often misdiagnosed, or not diagnosed at all.

COMMUNITY

Beloved farmer passes by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Friends and family gathered this week to say goodbye to longtime Brentwood resident and local farmer Leonard Nunn Gerry. Gerry died July 16 of injuries from an auto accident. He was 77. The owner of Gerry’s Fruit Bowl in Brentwood was an active member of the community and one of the founding members of the Harvest Time organization, as well as a driving force behind many of the area’s agricultural groups. Gerry also served for 12 years on the Liberty High School Board, was a Army veteran and a graduate of UC Berkeley. He loved fast cars, old movies, books and music. Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor, who has known Gerry for more than 30 years, said his personal relationship with the family remains one of his fondest memories. “Leonard was one of our first introductions to Brentwood and we established a wonderful friendship,” said Taylor. “Our kids grew up together and did swim team, band and school things together. Leonard was a very soft-spoken man with a dry sense of humor. But when Leonard spoke, you listened. We’ll all miss him.” Neighbor and personal friend Patty Bristow said the gift of Gerry’s friendship will be sorely missed: “I met Leonard when his children were in first grade. He and (wife) Judy have been just the most wonderful neighbors: gracious and welcoming. We’ve all been here

LEONARD NUNN GERRY, DEC. 2, 1932-JULY 16, 2009 with our (generations) of families for over 80 years, and there is a close connection. The Gerrys are what real Brentwood neighbors are all about. He was a wonderful man.” Santi Lopez, a personal trainer who had been working with Gerry for the past few months, said he was honored to have known the patriarch: “I am so very sad, because he touched me so much. He used to come in three times a week and had such a great sense of humor. I still expect to see him walk through the door. It’s just unreal.” Gerry is survived by his wife, Judy; sons, David and Scott; daughter, Anne; grandsons, Jack, Landon, Kitts and Ridge; sister, Maureen; and brother, Guy. Services were held on July 21 at the Brentwood Community Methodist Church.

Greenhouse bills’ burden too great Editor: To Mayor Davis and council members: My name is Sandra Baltzell, and I have been a resident of Antioch for 19 years. I am writing this letter to you after reading the article in the Antioch Press entitled “Antioch adopts greenhouse goals.” I was very upset after reading this article that the mandates to achieve the greenhouse goals would cost California residents $4,000 per year, and small businesses nearly $50,000. The question I would like to address all of you regarding this matter is: how do you expect the residents and small businesses to pay this huge amount yearly, when all of us are struggling to survive day by day, week by week? I do believe that global warming is a serious problem that needs to be addressed by every human being on this earth, but this is not the solution to this problem. So many people are already at the end of their rope; they are losing everything: jobs, homes, families, their dignity, and even their lives. There is no easy answer to this problem, and to assume that the American people can absorb this debt put upon us is so unjust. If you think this is going to work, you are dead wrong. What you will see happen is the slow death of our city. Residents won’t be able to pay that added debt ($4,000) so they will lose their homes, causing them to move somewhere else. This will cause the collapse of our community; businesses that were struggling to survive will go bust. They too will leave; the end result will be a ghost town that was once was a thriving community. You can’t put the burden on the residents without having dreadful consequences. Don’t be so quick to act. If you can’t resolve the problems that exist in this city, a $6 million budget deficit, then you shouldn’t move forward on this issue. I urge all of you to think seriously about these two greenhouse bills (AB32 and SB375) and the effect they will cause to all of us.

TO THE

Who is going to benefit from these greenhouse goals if our society is destroyed in the process? The state of California won’t, neither would the country, and finally neither would the rest of the world. As a society living on this global world, every country will have to share in the responsibility to fix this problem that society has created. One country, one state, and even one city cannot fix this problem that is plaguing the world. Look at the whole picture before you act. Are you willing to sacrifice the people that live here to obtain these goals? I sure hope not. Your responsibility to the citizens of Antioch is to protect them, not destroy them. Please do your job. Respectfully, Sandra Baltzel Antioch

Selective memory Editor: This is in response to last week’s “Pathetic protest” letter by David Lewis. It seems that Mr. Lewis suffers from the very thing about which he writes, accusing “right-wingers” of having short memories. He blames the problems of both our country and state on the Republican Party. First he blames the Bush administration for all the problems of our country. It would be hard to argue against that. But then, at then end of his letter, he incredulously tries to blame the problems of the “Great” state of California on the Republican Party as well. Now, I have heard some crazy statements before, but to refer to California as a “Republican-run state” is about as laughable as it can get. Does Mr. Lewis honestly believe that California is controlled by the Republican Party? Does he realize that the legislature is comprised of two Democrats for every one Republican? Has Mr. Lewis ever heard the name Gray Davis? In case he forgot, Mr. Davis is the Democrat who was in charge of things when this gigantic mess started at the state level. Just as Bush was in charge when the country started getting flushed down the proverbial toilet. Mr. Lewis’ letter also criticizes the tea parties that took place downtown. He starts his letter with the exact words “My suspicion is.” Then he “wonders what the protesters are angry about.” If he was so concerned with what the protests were about, maybe he should have gone to find out instead of speculating. Lastly, how much more hypocritical can you get – an admitted Democrat telling a group of people to stop protesting the president? That is just downright comical, considering what your liberal friends have spent the last eight years doing. If Mr. Lewis truly wanted the people to “start coming together,” maybe he wouldn’t be so divisive himself. Mike Kruppa Brentwood

EDITOR

Heed the voice of experience Editor: The guest comment of June 19 by former councilmember Brad Nix expressed concern with the hiring of new City Attorney Bill Galstan. I appreciate Mr. Nix’s concerns with the Oakley City Council’s decision to replace Ms. Green with Mr. Galstan. The residents of Oakley should be aware that the hiring of Mr. Galstan is Oakley’s gain and Antioch’s loss. Bill Galstan was a wonderful attorney for the City of Antioch. His intelligence, wisdom and experience allowed Antioch to develop and expand with few problems. There were times when certain Antioch council members did not heed his advice. As a long-time Antioch commissioner, I experienced firsthand how he walked the city through the mine fields in these trying times. There is no substitute for experience. Oakley should celebrate, not despair. Oakley Council members and commissioners should heed his advice. Renny Russell Antioch

Thanks to the Special people Editor: A heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed to making our first Flag Day Pancake Breakfast a huge success in support of Special Kids’ Day. Thank you to everyone who attended and also bought raffle tickets to increase the amount we are able to donate to help the kids. A very special thank you to Maggie and Rene De Luna, who graciously opened their ranch as the setting, just as they do annually for Special Kids’ Day. The De Lunas’ kindness and generosity is endless, and all area Lions clubs are blessed to have them. Thank you to the Livermore IHOP restaurant for donating its delicious pancake batter. Thank you to the Byron Station Blue Grass Band and The Delta Strummers, along with Hawaiian dancer Darlynne Bohammon, who donated their time and entertained us throughout the event. Because of them, breakfast became a social event where people ate, then stayed and visited, enjoying each other and the entertainment. It was rewarding to see so many adults and children having a great time while helping a wonderful cause. Apologies to our earliest guests, whose hot food was less than hot. Sorry. We had not yet mastered the equipment. We did better once we got it figured out, so please give us another chance next year. We can often use help with our fundraisers, so we welcome all students who are trying to satisfy their community service hours to contact us. We sure could use your help throughout the year. We invite anyone interested in joining our Lions Club to attend our meetings and “check the fit.” We’d love to have you. Please call 925-513-1780 for more

information to join us, or to volunteer your time and your donations to help our worthy causes. Again, thank you to all who spent their morning with us in support of Special Kids’ Day. Know that you contributed to a wonderful cause and you are so appreciated. Byron-Delta Lions

Teacher tribute Editor: We would like to take this opportunity to thank the teachers and staff at Edna Hill Middle School. The education and support our daughter received was one that she will always remember and continue to draw upon through out her life. She has known for a long time that she wanted to be a teacher, and because of teachers like Mr. and Mrs. Kemper, Mrs. DeFermery, Mr. Gonzales and many others, she knows what kind of teacher she wants to be. Their passion about what they do was a great thing to watch as a parent. The way they encouraged her to not just do OK, but to do her best always, was so appreciated. When we attended the Honor Society assemblies, they always said it was the parents that got the children to that point, but I believe it is a combination of an involved parent and a good teacher.

Go for win-win-win scenario Editor: A reasonable person without prejudice against trade unions would recognize that using a Project Labor Agreement would benefit both the City of Brentwood, the contractors and the varied skilled labor forces building the City Center. The City of Brentwood benefits because it maintains control of the project by establishing rules for the hiring of the labor force, wages and benefits, resolution of work jurisdiction disputes, and labor contract delays. The contractors benefit because the bidding is done on a level playing field. The most efficient and well-run company will win the contract. The organization with the best planning and performance will build the best product, save the city money and make a profit. The labor force will benefit because health and welfare benefits, established by the PLA, are being provided by the employer through the hourly wages of the employee. All bidding contractors have the same labor costs. Trade union wages and benefits is the measuring stick used to make the scale. A majority of the City Council recognized these benefits and I applaud their votes in support of the PLA. Ed Accurso Brentwood

School site from page 1A Firefighters attack a fouralarm blaze at an auto wrecking yard in Brentwood Sunday.

Photo by Rick Lemyre

Fire from page 1A from wrecked vehicles. Meanwhile, the investigation into how the fire started was continuing. “The cause is still undetermined, but the origin was a grass fire on Ortiz Court,” said Acting Chief Hugh Henderson of the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (ECCFPD). “It spread to (an unoccupied) mobile home and then into the wrecking yard.” In addition to the 250 partially dismantled vehicles, the fire destroyed an undetermined number of small outbuildings, but the main office building for Continental was not burned. As of press time, no estimate of damages was available. A mobile home and residence on the fire’s south flank were saved, Henderson said. On the north side, a fence surrounding a motor home storage facility was burned, but the motor homes were not harmed. “We built a box around (the fire) early

on, and we stuck real hard to keep the fire in there,” Henderson said. “I think we did an excellent job on the fire, and it was an excellent example of good cooperation between agencies.” About 70 firefighters from ECCFPD, Contra Costa’s Con Fire and CalFire were involved, as was the state Office of Emergency Services and police from Brentwood, Oakley, the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office and the CHP. It took about two hours to completely contain the blaze, which involved dozens of explosions and a thick column of black smoke visible for miles. Officials will monitor clean-up at the site carefully, although it’s uncertain if it will ever re-open. Kidwell said the wrecking yard pre-dated current zoning for the parcel, and was therefore a “legal, non-conforming use.” If the business is closed for more than 30 days, he said, the wrecking yard use would no longer be allowed.

Road and Sellers Avenue to four lanes, but in the letter to the district, the city notes that no funds currently exist to facilitate these changes, and that bond money would be needed. “The report states that it is Oakley’s responsibility since it is in our jurisdiction, but the district can’t put that on us since it is not part of our capital improvement projects,” Strelo said. “All the fingers are pointed at the city, but these projects aren’t on the books. We have no plans to make these changes at this time. We need these improvements included in the bond measure to pay for this infrastructure.” Councilman Jim Frazier said student safety is the top priority and not negotiable. The report must specify who is responsible for specific improvements and how it will all be paid for. Councilman Kevin Romick said it was important for the council to send its concerns to the district to make sure that money from the proposed bond measure will go toward paying for the road improvements. “We try to be aggressive during this process to make the district aware of our concerns,” said Romick. “We want to partner tightly with the bonding to make sure that there are funds for the needed improvements.” Councilman Bruce Connelley agreed. “They (the school district) must include how to mitigate these things (in the EIR report). If the roads aren’t fixed, people will come to the council and complain that their kids can’t get to school.” While funding remains the largest issue, the city also identified other areas that need more study before a final report is issued, such

as how construction of the new high school will affect Oakley’s proposed middle school on Brownstone Road and the future continuation high school on Sellers. The city also expressed concern about adequate sidewalks and bike lanes as well as the need for police services on campus. As the council directed staff on how to formulate the concerns into a response letter, another question arose: is this even the best location for the fourth high school? The council maintains an interest in putting the school near the Summer Lakes Development, but the draft EIR dismisses that location because the district purportedly received notification from the state, which eliminated that location as a possibility. The city has asked for a more detailed answer to why this location was ruled out. The council was urged by two Oakley residents at the council meeting to push for an alternative school site, as the proposed location is the “most unsafe site” for the new school. The city’s letter will join other comments submitted to the district during the comment period, which has been extended to Friday, Aug. 7. After the comment period ends, the district will respond to all comments and revise the document as needed. A final report is expected as early as the end of August. The draft EIR can be viewed on the LUHSD website at http://www.libertyuhsd. k12.ca.us/index.php?page=hs4. Comments may be submitted to Director of Project Development Wayne Reeves at the LUHSD office at 20 Oak St. in Brentwood, by phone at 925634-2166, ext. 2036, or by e-mail at reevesw@ libertyUHSD.k12.ca.us.

Shooting for gold by Dave Roberts Staff Writer Paul With is hoping to be the next Caitlin Cardoza, the Heritage High student who won the gold medal last year in the U.S. Junior Olympics 12-to-13-year-old girls soccer competition. Paul, an 11-year-old Brentwood resident who will begin sixth grade at Bristow Middle School next week, is competing against two other finalists this weekend in the basketball shooting competition at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in San Diego. He earned the all-expense-paid trip by sinking six three-pointers, five layups and a free throw in 45 seconds for a total of 38 points in the regional competition at Diamond Hills Sports Club in Oakley. Paul is one of the top 72 finalists out of more than 1.6 million young athletes from the U.S. and Puerto Rico who competed in basketball, soccer, tennis and track.

“I just kind of want to have fun there and see if I can win,” said Paul, who sometimes spends hours shooting hoops, particularly from long range, in his backyard with his cousin Brian and his friend Simba. The With family has a membership at Diamond Hills and Paul and his father, Steve, have played two-on-two against two adult men and often won “because he shoots so well,” said Steve. “It’s really fun. One of the things I like about him is that he has a good attitude and has fun.” This is not Paul’s first claim to sports fame. A couple years ago he was the MVP in the Brentwood PONY baseball all-star world series. The With family moved to Brentwood from Colorado Springs in 2003 so that Steve could launch and become pastor of Orchard Church, which meets at Heritage High School.

by Dave Roberts Staff Writer Football, they say, is a game of inches, which also could be said of golf, tennis, baseball and a lot of other sports. But when it comes to speed sports, especially at the world championship level, it’s not seconds, but tenths of seconds, that make all the difference between standing on the platform with an Olympic gold medal around your neck and not even qualifying for the team. Brentwood’s Kate Dwelley has experienced both the thrill of victory and the disappointment of defeat in her swimming career. The victories were many when swimming for Liberty High, from which she graduated in 2006 as an 18time High School All-American, winner of eight North Coast Section championships and NCS record-setter in the 200 freestyle. But thus far, the ultimate prize, the Olympics, has eluded her. She narrowly missed making the 2004 U.S. Olympic Team when she was just 15, finishing eighth in the 200 free when the top six finishers got to go to Athens for the games. She hoped to make amends last year, but again failed to make the team, finishing ninth, despite setting personal best times in the 100 and 200 freestyle races. Despite those setbacks, she’s remained competitive and has set numerous school records at Stanford, where she’s

Kate was already in Italy earlier this week and unavailable to comment, but her mother Jeannette answered the phone at Dwelley Farms. “She was disappointed when she didn’t make the Olympics last year,” she said. “This is this year’s biggest meet. She’s been working really hard to achieve this. She was really happy (to make the team). We are proud of her hard work and it finally paid off this year. She’s a great kid. I am really happy for her because she’s so happy.”

NFL Pro from page 1B a job today, be loving life, on top of the world, have fans and everybody knows you. And you get a knock on the door and they tell you you’re not good enough to play for them – and you have no team, no fans. It takes less than two seconds to do it. Every year there’s newer players that can take a position from you.” He’s still young and strong and might be able to eke out a living playing semi-pro ball, but Trucks said he’s not interested, and instead is content spending his life training other athletes to excel at his Trucks Training facility in the Raley’s shopping center on Lone Tree Way in Antioch. “I know what it’s like to play at a high level,” he said. “I feel I can give back to people (as a trainer) more so than trying to chase a level of (semipro) football that I feel is below me. If that (professional) door opens, I’ll walk through the door. But I love what I do here. I love being able to give back to local athletes.” Trucks opened the facility on Jan. 31 with two other Antioch high school football stars he played with and against: Brandon McMullen, who was an outside linebacker for Deer Valley High, a safety at Los Medanos College and participated in an NFL rookie camp; and Robert Henriquez, who was a three-year starting quarterback and all-league star at Antioch High as well as a quarterback coach for the Las Vegas Gladiators arena football team and is now a quarterback

coach at LMC. Trucks said their youth and experience enable them to identify with and provide the latest training techniques for the more than 350 athletes who come through their facility, which features a weight room, cardio machines and an artificial turf room containing a giant truck tire. “A lot of people teach you to run fast,” said Trucks. “We teach speed, agility and quickness. You’re going to get faster and stronger.” Two of their clients, who are probably not headed to the NFL any time soon but have seen results from their training, are Brentwood residents Meghan Willmes and Brianne Smith, both 11 years old, who have been training at Trucks twice a week during the summer. Meghan, who plays volleyball and soccer at Bristow Middle School, said it’s helped her “to get strong and to get faster and to have fun.” Brianne, who plays soccer and basketball at Adams Middle School, said the training has also helped her get stronger and quicker. “I’ve been getting to the ball faster,” she said. Trucks said the cost varies for the training. “There is no set price,” he said. “We make it work with their pay scale. My thing is not to be here to make a lot of money. If I can pay my bills, that’s all I need. I don’t need fast cars. I need something I can enjoy doing for the rest of my life.” For more information, go online to www.truckstraining.com.

OBITUARIES Ronald R. McGee Dec. 27, 1947-July 15, 2009 Ron “Rapic Ron” McGee passed away at the age of 61. Born in Tulsa, Okla., he was a citizen of the Muscogee Nation and a descendant of Tuckabache, a well known Creek Tribe warrior and hunter. He was very proud of his Indian heritage. Ron went to Daytona in 1977 and purchased a cup car that ran and finished the 500. He started racing modified at the old San Jose Speedway in the early ’70s. Ron went on to race the NASCAR Winston West in the early ’80s. He was a true motorhead who never lost his love of speed and the sound of a well-tuned engine. Ron owned Diamond Electro Plating and did extensive chrome work for many custom cars and motorcycles. He also owned Bay Internet, specializing in computer cabinets, sheet metal and custom painting. He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth Van Sandwyk of Discovery Bay; his daughter and son-in-law, Katrina and Louie Mendez of Salida; stepsons, Benjamin Markus of Honolulu and Clyde Holbrook of Discovery Bay; nephew, Michael McGee of Redding; and “his girls,” granddaughters Kylie and Carerra Mendez. He is predeceased by his parents, mother Mary Engel; brother, Sammie McGee; and stepson, Nicholas Markus. A memorial service will be held Aug. 1, 2009, at 11 a.m. at the Brentwood Funeral Home, 839 First St., followed by a reception. All family and friends are invited to come and celebrate Ron’s life.

Brooke Christina Hammer Brentwood resident Brooke Hammer passed away Tuesday, July 7 at her home. She was surrounded by her loving family and friends. Her passing was peaceful and came after a long five-year battle with breast cancer. She was 35 years old. Brooke is survived by her loving husband, Michael, 5-year-old daughter Trinity and 2-year-old twin boys, Austin and Hayden; parents, Brian and Janee Brackenbury of Antioch; four sisters and three brothers; parents-in-law, Jim and Melissa Hammer of Antioch; and several brothers and sisters-in-law. Brooke’s memory and life will remain in the hearts and minds of all those who knew her and that she has loved, cared about, known and inspired throughout her entire life. She will be deeply missed. Born on June 21, 1974 in Buena Park, Brooke moved numerous times during her childhood and eventually moved to Antioch at the end of 1994. She had changed schools along with moving and learned to befriend people easily. This helped develop her good nature, friendly attitude and loving spirit. She continued her education and

earned her Bachelor of Science in Psychology degree from UC Davis. Brooke became a teacher and then vice principal for a non-public school for special needs children called Tobinworld. Brooke had a love for children and a special talent and ability to teach and care for them. Children always responded to her and grew to love her very quickly. Brooke met her husband Michael in early 1995 and from the very beginning they knew they were meant to be together. They met at the LDS Church on Jeffrey Way in Antioch and were married in the Oakland California Temple. They lived in Antioch for two years and in Rio Vista for four. During that time and on Nov. 12, 2003, they were blessed with the birth of their beautiful daughter Trinity. In early 2005, Brooke was diagnosed with breast cancer. This was a sad turn of events for Brooke and her family. Following surgery and during her chemotherapy treatments, Brooke and Mike decided to move to Brentwood in order to be closer to their families. Brooke has always been a joyful, cheerful, caring and loving person. She always had a smile on her face and to anyone who knew her or had met her; there was always a brightness and sense of love and compassion about her. Although she was diagnosed with breast cancer, she didn’t let the illness change her or alter the incredible person she is. Brooke had a love of gymnastics. She began learning the sport as a child. That love eventually grew into a teaching and coaching job at a local gym. Eventually she

opened her own gymnastics facility – Four Stars Gymnastics Academy – in Antioch in 2003. On July 24, 2007, Brooke and Mike were again blessed and Brooke gave birth to their twin boys, Austin and Hayden. Shortly thereafter, in January 2008, Brooke suffered a recurrence of her breast cancer, but this time it had metastasized in her liver. She again didn’t let the illness change or alter the incredible person she was. After numerous types of treatments and chemotherapy, Brooke and her family received word that none of the treatments were working. She was also having many terrible side effects from the medications and treatments. In the end, she returned to her home, was surrounded by loving friends and family and passed away peacefully. Brooke was an incredible person. She loved and cared about all of her family and friends and they all love her dearly. Her family would like to thank all of them and others throughout the community who have shared their condolences and love and have offered so much help. A service was held on Thursday, July 16 at the LDS Church on Jeffrey Way in Antioch, where Brooke and Mike first met. A donation and contribution account has been set up in honor of Brooke and her family at Citibank, 6041 Lone Tree Way, Brentwood, CA 94513. Donations may be made to either “The Hammer Family” or “Michael Hammer.” Please reference the account number: 6604. For more information, call Citibank at 925-516-3100.

With help from a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency grant, the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) is pioneering a method of generating renewable energy using food scraps. EBMUD takes food waste from San Francisco and Contra Costa County restaurants and commercial food processors and uses them to produce green renewable energy through anaerobic digestion. The innovative approach decreases food waste sent to landfills and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. In light of San Francisco’s recently signed mandatory composting law – the first in the nation – residents and businesses will begin increasing their composting efforts or finding new and unique ways to divert food scraps from being sent to the landfill. EBMUD’s anaerobic digester, in operation since 2004, is leading the way, and currently processes 90 tons per week of post-consumer food waste from restaurants and food processing facilities. The facility plans on increasing the amount of food waste processed to its maximum capacity of 200 tons per day. The process begins when food waste is separated for disposal and pick-up. At the EBMUD’s main wastewater treatment plant, waste is broken down in large containers called anaerobic digesters. The

bacteria inside the digester decompose the food. The digester captures the biogas, and the methane from the biogas powers the treatment plant. Material remaining after the digestion process can be composted and used as a natural fertilizer to help grow food. Quick facts: • In the United States, more than 30 million tons of food waste are sent to landfills annually. • Food waste is the second largest category of municipal solid waste in the United States, accounting for 18 percent of the waste stream. • In the United States, less than 3 percent of food waste is diverted from landfills. • If 50 percent of food waste in the United States were anaerobically digested, enough electricity would be generated to power approximately 2.5 million homes for a year. • Landfills are the second largest source of human-caused methane in the United States, and food waste contributes significantly to landfill methane production. To watch the video on the East Bay Utility District’s anaerobic digester, log on to www.bit.ly/9Mjja. To view the Flickr set, go to www.bit.ly/q9b3r.

Chiropractor offers cutting-edge relief What do sciatica, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, and Achilles tendonitis all have in common? They’re all conditions that Dr. Michael Pound says could be caused by a syndrome he calls “sticky muscles.” And the success with which Pound is treating many of these painful problems is surprising to even some of his patients. “When you suffer an injury or trauma to connective tissue such as muscle, ligaments or tendons, your body reacts with an inflammatory reaction in the injured connective tissue,” Pound says. “Even when you don’t suffer an apparent injury, you can still overuse these structures, leading to chronic pain problems known as cumulative trauma disorders.” The result is scar tissue buildup to stabilize the muscles and allow them to heal. This scar tissue, known as adhesions, forms a glue-like structure in the sheath surrounding the muscle, causing restrictions in movement, or “sticky muscles,” resulting in pain. Pound has made believers out of his patients – most importantly, his mother. Cheryl Pound of Spokane, Wash. says, “I spent hundreds of dollars on cortisone injections, foot inserts and even custom-made shoes for my foot pain with little to no relief. Yet after only one treatment with Dr. Pound, my foot pain was completely gone!” Lost time at work and inability to perform simple tasks due to pain can be extremely difficult to deal with. Health care costs for these cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs) is the nation’s largest

health care expenditure – estimated at more than $110 billion annually – exceeding even low back pain. During these difficult economic times, most people can’t afford to take time off to allow their bodies to heal. As Pound observes, “CTDs are serious problems. If not properly diagnosed and treated, they can lead to more damage and cause chronic pain that won’t be relieved by simple stretches or exercises.” Owner of ChiroCare Clinic, located in Antioch’s Rivertown business district, Pound specializes in treating patients with musculoskeletal pain. In addition to his pre-medical and doctorate studies, he has completed post-graduate certification in the diagnosis and treatment of work-related injuries. Pound also lectures on topics such as “Proper Posture To Prevent Pain and Aging” and “Are Sticky Muscles the Cause of Your Pain?” To learn more about Pound and his treatment methods, go to www.chirocareclinics.com or call 925-754-1727. As a board-certified chiropractor, Pound has spent years researching safe and effective methods to treat musculoskeletal problems without the use of pills, shots or surgery: “Many musculoskeletal problems can be resolved through the course of conservative care, with fairly positive results. It’s my mission to help people return to their daily activities quickly and efficiently and get adjusted to a better way of life.” – Contributed by ChiroCare Clinic
