Civic Center bids come in low by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

With a bid more than $16 million dollars less than what city officials had estimated, the apparent low bidder for the new Brentwood civic center project is Lathrop Construction of Benicia, whose bid of $28,486,000 was the lowest of 11 opened in the Council Chambers Tuesday afternoon. The city’s engineers’ estimate was $44,760,962 for the project, which includes city hall, a community center, surface parking lot, arcade, re-vamped City Park, and the Civic Plaza and fountain. “I am very pleased with the bids received earlier today,” Mayor Bob Taylor said in a statement following the opening. “All of the bidders have been prequalified, so we know they have the experience and financial capacity to do the job. Before staff can make a recommendation to the City Council, however, they need to do a thorough analysis

of the bids to determine for certain who is the lowest responsive and responsible bidder.” Prior to going to bid earlier this summer, city officials had expressed the belief that lean times in the construction industry could mean significant savings. Bids on similar projects around the state have come in as much as 25 to 30 percent below estimates, according to a report heard by the City Council just prior to the decision to go to bid. While Lathrop’s bid – which came in at 36 percent below the estimate – must still be analyzed to make sure it meets all the conditions of the bidding process, even the high bidder’s price – $33,010,000 from Big D Pacific Builders of Pleasanton – came in at more than 26 percent below the city’s estimate. City Manager Donna Landeros said Wednesday that the deadline for submitting bids was 2 p.m. Tuesday. At 1:49 p.m., she said, none had yet been received, although representatives of each of the 11 pre-qualified compa-

Hero cop in Jaycee case from Brentwood Allison Jacobs, the UC Berkeley Police officer who, along with fellow officer Lisa Campbell cracked the 18-year-old Jaycee Dugard kidnapping case, is a resident of Brentwood and will soon be honored for her role in blowing open the bizarre East County case that has gripped the world. Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor said Tuesday that city officials and police were helping protect Campbell’s privacy as the crush of global media descending on the area hunts for stories. “The city will be doing something very special for her,” Taylor said, adding that the public is encouraged to turn out for the event at 7 p.m. next Tuesday, Sept. 8, before the regular City Council meeting. “She’s very excited that her city would do something. Let’s pack the place.” Jacobs has been quoted in news reports as sensing “something about the girls that wasn’t right” about the two young children who accompanied Phillip Garrido to the Berkeley campus to make arrangements for an event he wanted to hold.

For the last 15 years, she has been a printing customer of Garrido, whose delivery of one particular job about five years ago is now a chilling memory. “He did some flyers for us, a fact list on how to keep kids safe from kidnappers,” Gomes said Tuesday. “He said, ‘You know, you’re missing something here. One thing parents do wrong is they let their kids walk to the bus stop alone. They shouldn’t.’” Garrido allegedly snatched Dugard from a South Lake Tahoe street while she was waiting for the school bus. Getting ideas from people she encounters isn’t unusual, Gomes said, adding that Garrido’s suggestion for the tip sheet was “a good idea. I didn’t know he was talking from firsthand experience.” Gomes said she had visited Garrido’s house on business several times over the years, but she “never saw anyone” other than Garrido: “Nothing was ever out of place inside the home.” The furniture was old fashioned, she see Hero page 22A

Local couple cooks up prize-worthy pork by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Like most Americans, Chuck and Cindy Collondrez will fire up the grill this weekend in the spirit of Labor Day merriment – except they’ll be in contention to win $10,000 for their fine feast. The Brentwood couple will load up their two Weber grills and head out to Lakeport to compete in the Smoke on the Water California Barbecue Championship, a cook off competition affiliated with the Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS). It’s only the couple’s second cook-off competition, but after placing fifth overall at the West Coast Barbecue Championship in Fairfield three weeks ago, they’ve decided to put their skills to the test again. Chuck and Cindy have always enjoyed cooking, but they never thought about competing until a month ago when a friend suggested the duo take their barbecue talents to the professional circuit. “We didn’t know anything about barbecue competitions, but we thought we’d give it a try,” Chuck said. “The next competition was just a week away so I looked it up online and signed us up. It was completely impulsive. I had no idea what we were getting into.” During KCBS competitions, teams must prepare chicken, ribs, pork roast and brisket. Teams are judged based on presentation, taste and texture, and competitors come

from all over the country to participate in these competitions. While Chuck and Cindy are novices, cooking on grills you can find at Home Depot, other teams haul in 20-ft grills that cost thousands of dollars. “Some people go to the competitions for fun, but other people mean business,” Chuck said. “They come in with these huge grills – just like the ones you see on the Food Network. Everyone is really friendly, but no one is giving up their cooking secrets. No one will let you know what’s in their sauce. They

won’t even let you try their sauce because they don’t want you to be able to figure out that secret ingredient.” Chuck and Cindy came prepared with their own specialty seasonings and sauces, but they didn’t realize how intense the competition would be. Before official competition begins, competitors get to warm up their grills in the mystery meat competition where teams are given a piece of meat and have to cook it within a specified time limit. Unfortunately,

Chuck and Cindy’s team Bowling Over Pigs (a name derived from their love of bowling) didn’t solve the mystery to cooking the meat just right and came in last place out of 37 teams. “That’s all we didn’t want to do was to finish dead last,” Cindy recalled. “We didn’t want to embarrass ourselves, but luckily it didn’t count toward the official score. It was a bonus competition, so we took it as a learning experience.” Like any seasoned competitor, the couple shook off their misfortune and regrouped for the main event. While most people think barbecuing is what they do in their backyards, Chuck said that’s merely grilling. Real barbecue takes hours of slow cooking, smoking the meat to perfection. This means firing up the grill around midnight and cooking through the wee hours of the morning to have the meat ready for presentation at noon. Cindy and Chuck stayed up all night, monitoring their meat while talking with fellow pitmasters and watching movies on a laptop computer. The long hours paid off, though, when the judges announced Bowling Over Pigs placed third in the pork roast competition, which heavily contributed to the duo finishing fifth overall. For now, Chuck and Cindy keep their trophies on the dining room table, walking by every now and then to relive the memory see Pork page 12A

Continental rises from the ashes by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Except for a few charred trees and a noticeably reduced inventory, there’s little evidence of the four-alarm blaze that cost Chris Rockenbaugh more than 80 percent of his auto dismantling business. But that’s all to the good for the owner of Brentwood’s Continental Pull-N-Save, who just 30 days after surviving arguably one of the largest fires in recent memory, has officially re-opened for business. “Our inventory is still at a minimum, but repairs are being made to the fences and gravel is being put down, and we’re working through it,” said Rockenbaugh. “But I’ll tell you: I don’t wish this on anyone. To be completely wiped out business-wise is tough. But we’ll survive.” The fire is believed to have started around 6 p.m. on Sunday, July 19 in some tall weeds west of Continental in the 6300 block of Brentwood Boulevard, and then jumped to Rockenbaugh’s 5-acre yard filled with disassembled autos. Gas tanks in the hollowed-out cars, 55-gallon drums and nearby tires might have contributed to a series of explosions that sent thick black smoke into the night sky. By the time the blaze was out, two mobile homes were destroyed and 50 residents evacuated. “I’ve never had a fire like this,” said Rockenbaugh. “The wind was blowing and it was just devastating. The yard was totally full at the time. It (the fire) destroyed nearly

Continental is already back in business, however, and will soon be adding inventory. everything.” Rockenbaugh maintains that there’s no question that the fire started behind his property, and that any fines meted out will not include his business. “We were not fined for anything and we won’t be,” said Rockenbaugh. “There is no dispute about where it (the fire) started, and everyone at the city (Brentwood) has been very supportive.” Louis Kidwell, chief building official for the City of Brentwood, said Rockenbaugh has met all of the city’s requirements for re-

opening, including past requests for cleanup and disposal of items on the property. “He’s (Rockenbaugh) complied with everything we asked of him and so he’s ready to go,” said Kidwell. “We’d been asking him to make some changes on his property for eight or nine months and he’d begun to make some prior to the fire, but now he’s been able to make them all and things out there look great.” Trying to put the incident behind him, Rockenbaugh has been busy restocking his auto yard and preparing for a grand re-open-

ing celebration in a few weeks. “People have been coming in asking me when we are opening and I tell them right now,” said Rockenbaugh. “In another three or four weeks we’ll be fully graveled and fully stocked and then we’ll have an official re-opening. But we’re open now; people are welcome to come and see that we’re still here. We’re survivors.” Continental Pull-N-Save is located at 6240 Brentwood Blvd. and open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 925-240-5906.

But that’s not the only reason for fi scal feelin’ good. Last month, Standard and Poor’s issued Brentwood an AA Rating for it’s economic health.

The Diablo Shores Pro Am Tournament drew thousands of spectators and participants to last year’s event in Brentwood. This season’s competition kicks off Sept. 11 and runs through the Sept. 13.

Elite skiers come to Diablo Shores by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer For the past eight years, Greg Badal has been quietly organizing one of the nation’s largest pro water skiing events right here in Brentwood, and this year’s forum is shaping up to be more of the same. “We had about 5,000 people come out last year and we’re expecting even more this time,” said Badal, who directs the project with his wife, Debbie. “Every year it’s gotten bigger and better.” The Diablo Shores Pro Am Tournament, sponsored by Dublin Toyota and Dublin VW, will splash into Brentwood’s Diablo Shores Lake the weekend of Sept. 11-13, featuring top-notch competition from some of the world’s best water skiers – including world record holder Karina Knowlen – and more than $70,000 in cash and prizes. Proceeds raised from the event benefit the Brentwood Police Activities (PAL) program. The tournament is free to the public, and offers a unique opportunity for rec-

reational skiers to mix and mingle with professionals in a low-key, relaxed setting; something most venues don’t offer. “What is unique about this is that it’s a pro am event with families and professionals in the same venue,” said Badal. “We attract beginners all the way to the professionals. It’s a nice weekend.” New this year to the tournament will be a legends division, showcasing such world-class skiers as Andy Mapple, Carl Roberge, Bob and Kris La Point and Lucky Lowe. New to the event is a live Web cast throughout the weekend. For Badal, the event is all about good will, sporting competition and championship exhibitions. “We’re just trying to promote the sport and do it in a very family-friendly, no-alcohol venue,” said Badal. “We invite everyone to come on out, bring your lounge chair and a blanket and enjoy the weekend. It’s a lot of fun.” For more information, visit www. diabloshores.com or call 925-997-9914.

When I meet with distressed homeowners who are facing imminent foreclosure, sometimes they ask if the bank will agree to rent back to them after the foreclosure. They reason that they are already there, they like the home, the kids are in school in the neighborhood, and they’d be willing to pay market rent. I have been politely pointing out to them that banks are not in the business of being property managers, and in many cases, it is a violation of their federal banking charter for them to hold properties as rentals. Well, guess there is egg on my face now, because some banks are doing exactly that! This is not exactly widespread, but I have heard of lenders who are offering to rent to the ex-homeowner at market rent. This is most common if the loan is held by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, two of the largest holders of mortgage loans in the United States. Seems like some lenders have figured out that if they were to actually dump all their bank-owned properties on the market at once, it would basically crater our real estate values

for a few years. So they are issuing foreclosure moratoriums like crazy, and then extending them. But that is putting serious negative pressure on their bottom lines since they are receiving no income at all during this period. Converting it to a rental will at least get them some income coming in the door. Most of the leases that I have seen from lenders are on a month-to-month basis, and they do reserve the right to offer the property for sale. So if the lender does decide to sell the property at some point in the future, they can. The prior homeowner at least gets some breathing room without having to face foreclosure AND moving out at the same time. And the neighborhood benefits from not having another vacant property with a dead lawn. You’ll have to check with your own lender for their policies in this regard.

Headaches, Neck Pain or Jaw Pain (TMJ) Bothering You? Neck pain and headaches can be very disabling and can significantly alter a person’s normal pattern of living. Simple things like reading the newspaper, cooking, driving a car, and/or looking down when feeding a baby, can become almost intolerable. Canceling plans for the day or saying “no” to vacations can be very disheartening and often occurs because of severe neck pain and/or headache making these activities simply, “no fun.” The cause of the headaches associated with neck pain and dysfunction is usually due to the compression caused by the tight neck muscles squeezing the upper three nerve roots in the neck region, resulting in radiating pain into the head. Frequently, light and noise sensitivity, as well as nausea, can accompany a severe headache, which only adds to the activity limitations associated with neck pain. In fact, there are many experts who feel most headaches, even migraines, stem from the neck or are at least are very closely related. Since neck pain affects approximately two thirds of the population at some point during their lifetime, it becomes clear that headaches, in the absence of neck pain, are quite uncommon. Another interesting and lesser-known relationship is the jaw (frequently referred to as the TMJ) and its association with neck function, especially the upper cervical vertebrae, as well as headaches. The muscles that move the jaw/TMJ are largely innervated by the 5th cranial nerve, also called the trigeminal nerve. Several studies have found that when stimulating structures innervated by the trigeminal nerve, neck and/or jaw pain was created. Similarly, patients with jaw problems (TMD) often report neck pain. The neck is always moving when we chew, yawn, talk, and clench our teeth. In fact, all of these every day activities result in jaw, head, neck motion extending from the base of the skull and first cervical vertebra (C1) and continues down through the entire cervical spine. This was investigated in a study where the relationship between neck symp-

toms, jaw function and pressure pain sensitivity in a trigeminal nerve innervated region was observed after a spinal manipulation was applied to the upper neck vertebrae. Here, 37 female patients with neck pain were randomly assigned to 1 of 2 groups (1, receiving upper neck manipulation; and 2, the non-manipulation group) and, before and after treatment, exams of mouth opening and pressure pain levels were measured. The group receiving the upper neck manipulation showed a significant increase in active mouth opening motion as well as improved pressure pain tolerance compared to the non-manipulation group. This study is very important as many people suffer from neck pain, headaches and TMD. In order to properly treat these patients, one must focus on multiple regions, not just the neck area. It has been demonstrated when we bite down, there is a corresponding tightening of two important muscles in the neck and upper back region. Similarly, studies show relaxation of muscles in the neck, upper back and TMJ after spinal manipulation to the neck is applied. Injuries to the TMJ are common but often not pursued by patients as often they’ll say, “my jaw clicks and snaps but I don’t think about it much.” If you, a friend, or a loved one are struggling with neck pain, headaches, or TMJ/jaw pain, we will properly assess your condition and administer the appropriate care that is required. We also coordinate services with other health care providers when necessary. This recommendation may represent one of most significant acts of kindness you can give to those that you truly care about.

LMC students digging anthropology by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Most classes at Los Medanos College’s Brentwood Center take place indoors, but if you’re taking general anthropology with Liana Padilla-Wilson, you’d better be wearing good shoes. While most students are taking notes and listening to lectures, Padilla-Wilson’s students are canvassing Marsh Creek, which flows behind the facility, conducting an archeological dig. They’re searching for evidence to help identify the type of people who live and have lived in the area. No item is too small. Everything has significance. “The students are finding all kinds of things, from toys to shells,” Padilla-Wilson said. “There is no such thing as trash during these digs. Everything plays a part in telling the story of what life is like in this area. Even the food wrapper from McDonald’s helps give us clues about the people in the area. Wrappers illustrate the diet of the inhabitants, while toys help define what play means to this group of people.” So although it might not take a genius to understand why there are empty soda bottles and snack wrappers near a college campus, 50 years from now these items would be significant indicators of life at the site. That’s what Padilla-Wilson is trying to show her students. Rather than keeping her students cooped up, she’s letting

The dig is part of Padilla-Wilson’s general anthropology course. them explore the field of anthropology with hands-on experience. The students learned the principles of an archeological dig during the first week of class, and then Padilla-Wilson took her class to the creek to see what they could find. Using paintbrushes and garden spades, the students dig around, hoping to uncover objects that might shed light on the culture that lives in the area. They’re

essentially studying themselves, but that doesn’t detract from the fun. “The students have had such an enthusiastic response to this program,” PadillaWilson said. “They get really excited about coming out here and digging around in the dirt hoping to find some type of treasure. They get really competitive about it, too. They compete to see who can find the most unique thing. We find a lot of rocks and

plants, dead bugs, but they’re also finding tennis balls and pieces of cloth. It’s up to them to figure out what all these things say about the people who live here.” Students bag and tag each item they decide to keep as part of their investigation. Padilla-Wilson’s class will go out to collect artifacts several times during the semester, and ultimately write term papers about their investigations and announce their findings. The community is also getting involved in the ongoing exercise. PadillaWilson said people who walk the Marsh Creek Trail stop to observe her class at work and sometimes even pitch in. Last week, Padilla-Wilson said a passerby was out bird watching and took a few minutes to help students identify species of birds based on its feathers. “It’s so exciting when people stop by and ask questions,” Padilla-Wilson said. “The students really like interacting with the people who pass by in the mornings. They like sharing what they’re finding.” Padilla-Wilson is conducting a similar exercise at the Pittsburg campus, where students conduct their field work near the lake behind the main campus. Sophomore Arryn Crow of Antioch dug up leaves and feathers. She also found a Lego, a jump rope and a mouth guard. “Finding the mouth guard was really gross, see LMC page 11A

You want to know who used it. It’s like solving a mystery.” Padilla-Wilson said based on the reaction of her students these first weeks of class, she’ll bring the archeological dig exercise back next semester. She also hopes the increase in student enrollment in her classes results in more class offerings for the anthropology department, as the college currently only offers three types of anthropology courses.

but it says a lot about the area,” Crow said. “There are a lot of athletes here, so maybe someone was jogging around the lake and this fell out of their bag. Who knows? “There are a lot of kids who walk around the lake with their parents, so that explains the toys we’re finding. And the feathers are from all the ducks and geese that live at the lake. It all comes together like a puzzle.” Like her students, Padilla-Wilson began her college education at LMC. She took anthropology as part of the general education curriculum and fell in love with it. She spent years in the field, but returned to LMC five years ago as a part-time instructor. Now a full-time faculty member, Padilla-Wilson is trying to inspire her students, introducing the archeological dig component to the class this semester to help students get a better understanding of what anthropology is all about. Crow plans to transfer St. Mary’s College to complete her degree in anthropology just like Padilla-Wilson. Another one of Padilla-Wilson’s students, Noah Hirsch, a sophomore from Antioch, said he took one of her anthropology classes last spring and enjoyed the class so much that changed his major to pursue the social science. “I was pre-med, but then I took the class, and I really liked this side of science,” Hirsch said. “Anthropology isn’t about finding out what things are made of. It’s more abstract. Like when you find something during a dig, you don’t want to just

It’s a Matter of Law

Chuck and Cindy will take their prize-winning pork roast to the Smoke on the Water California Barbecue Championship this weekend.

By Barbara A. Frantz

DON’T DIE BEFORE YOU READ THIS…. Once my clients have accumulated wealth, they usually want to protect what they have worked so hard for. Every marketer also knows that they have accumulated that wealth, and they are bombarded by phone calls, free dinners, seminars, and letters with promises that “this is the solution.” My clients often ask me if they really need a living trust and will it protect their assets? They want to know if the do it yourself kits for $799 really do protect them, or if they need to spring for the $2500 to $3000 average for a living trust written by an attorney. And then some are told that their living trusts will cost $25,000 plus, and that makes no sense to them whatsoever. So what is a living trust and what is its purpose? Originally, living trusts were created to avoid probate. So what is probate? Probate is the legal procedure before a court to finally and once and for all settle an estate. So what is an estate? It is the “stuff ” that someone has accumulated during their life time. It includes bank accounts, real estate, investments, personal items, debts, promises, anything that is associated with a person at the time of their death. First I tell them that a living trust cannot by itself protect their assets from attack. While it is a deterrent, it is not a substitute for good insurance and possibly a corporation or LLC. If the claim is large enough, a good litigation attorney

will be highly motivated to force payment from the trust. Second, I tell them that the most common error people make is to form the trust, but not “fund” it completely. That is, if you don’t put your home title in the name of the trust, that asset is still “hanging out there in the wind.” I also recently had a case in which everything was in the trust except for one bank account. The estate had to probate that one account. So what’s so bad about probate? First of all, as in the case above, an attorney gets a minimum of 2% (it’s a sliding scale based on the value probated) of the estate being probated whether they have a lot or as little as completing a few forms. It adds up quickly. The process can take several years to complete and in the meantime, the assets in the probate are frozen. In the next article…what do you really need to be protected, an estate plan, a living trust package, or just a will? The information above is not a substitute for seeking legal advice.

Pork from page 3A of that afternoon just a few weeks ago. “We were shocked,” Cindy said. “We just wanted to go and have a good time and enjoy the experience. We didn’t want to be last again, but when they called our name, we were floored. I still can’t believe it.” Chuck said he didn’t even grasp that they’d placed so well until he realized Cindy’s cheering was for their own victory. “I heard them call our name, but it didn’t sink in,” Chuck recalled. “The guy next to me nudged me and then I looked over at Cindy and she’s just screaming. It was unbelievable. We didn’t win the grand prize, but for this being our first competition, it was just as good as coming in first.”

After getting a taste of the competition, Chuck and Cindy are hooked on cook-off contests, and following this weekend’s competition in Lakeport, the couple will prepare for competition in Clovis later this month. Chuck said he’s already looking at the competition calendar for next year, and if things at his business, Chuck’s Electric, aren’t too busy, he’d like to travel to competitions in Las Vegas and Talledega, Ala. And as they gain confidence in their cooking abilities, they might even consider catering on the side. “This is a great hobby,” Chuck said. “I don’t think we’ll go pro – maybe if we win some big competitions, we’ll think about it. But for now, we’re just having fun.”

Community celebrates opening of Sheriff’s annex by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Residents, local officials and county law enforcement gathered last week to celebrate the grand opening of the Discovery Bay Sheriff’s annex. Sheriff Warren Rupf welcomed the public to the new offices, located next to Aladino’s Pizza on Discovery Bay Boulevard, and thanked residents for their ongoing support and commitment to community safety. “The evidence is that this town, at least on this issue, has come together in all ways,” said Rupf. “Thank you to each and every member of the community for their hard work. This facility represents all that is good with Discovery Bay.” Rupf also welcomed Supervisor Mary Piepho, and thanked her and the entire Board of Supervisors for their role in getting the office opened. “It’s an honor to be here to help dedicate this facility,” she said, offering praise for the Sheriff and the “dedicated partners” in the community that helped bring it about. Rupf also thanked the Hofmann Company for its donation of the office space, as well as Resident Saves volunteers Gary and Edie Rubin and Elizabeth Munoz.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

School is in Session Did you know that fear and greed are the two most compelling and determining emotions of the human species? And, for the most part, when logic doesn’t compel, fear is the motivating factor? To quote Warren Buffet, considered by many the best investor of the 20th Century, “Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy only when others are fearful.” With that said, many people are fearful of the future, which makes now the perfect time for first time buyers to do their homework and research home ownership in our local real estate market. Brentwood’s population has more than doubled in the last eight years (2000-2008) increasing 117%, per the California Department of Finance’s report of Population Estimates prepared by Daniel Sheya. The next city in Contra Costa County to come close to such a growth spurt, in Mr. Sheya’s report has been San Ramon with an increase of 32% respectively – a stunning 85% difference. That being said as of August 8, 2009 eager buyers had been waiting in line, camping out eight days to solidify a purchase of a certain developments latest phase in San Ramon. No one is exactly sure where the bottom is real estate wise, but with people camping out eight days, logically we have to assume we’re pretty close. Again, using very sound logic, even if home prices continued to drop five or so percent, that’s very close to your standard real estate commission (with commissions be-

ing six percent) and shouldn’t be a determining factor in the least for anyone jumping into the market. However, one factor that should receive a huge chunk of a potential buyer’s report card…especially with the Brentwood Union, Liberty Union, Antioch and Oakley Unified officially back in full swing...are the local schools. Whether you are a first time buyer or an investor, local school performance is very important, for in the long run either your children’s education and/or your re-sale value, are going to be directly affected by a district’s performance. To put it in perspective, last year Brentwood’s new (2005) high school, Heritage High School, earned an Academic Performance Index (API) growth of 33 compared to the state’s target for the school of 5. Combine that with Heritage’s score of 7 on the API Statewide Rank of one-hundred similar schools across the state versus the average score of 3 (ranked by parent education, poverty, student mobility, and student ethnicity), and you have an A+ for schools. Put that A+ for schools with an already historically impressive interest rate market and amazingly low prices per square foot and you have to ask yourself, how many more statistics before logic overcomes my fear!

City Park swan song corching temperatures might have held attendance down on Saturday, but a crowd of thousands shrugged off the heat on Sunday and filled City Park to enjoy the annual Art, Wine and Jazz Festival. On Sunday afternoon, a hundred or so guests created a giant wine glass on the lawn, seen here, as a helicopter flew over the park to take this shot of the last major event scheduled for the park before its renovation and enlargement get under way.

two new resident deputies, Byran Michaud and Mark Spaulding, as well as Crime Prevention Specialist Tony Fontenot, “The only guy without a gun, but that doesn’t make him not important,” quipped Rupf. According to Lt. Mike Burton, the man in charge of the Sheriff’s Office presence in the area called Delta Station, which includes Discovery Bay, “I think this was a nice turnout and I’m thrilled that Discovery Bay has a place they can be proud of.” The grand opening was co-sponsored by the Sheriff’s Office, Supervisor Piepho, the Discovery Bay Chamber of Commerce and the Discovery Bay Community Services District (CSD). “On behalf of the business community, I would like to thank you (Sheriff’s deputies) for all the efforts they do to take out the bad guys and make it our community better,” said Chamber President Chris Steele. CSD President Ray Tetreault agreed. “It’s a great celebration and a good turnout,” he said. “This is certainly a positive event.” The resident deputies, crime prevention specialist and additional patrol car were paid for with P6 zone funds – more than $500,000 per year earmarked for enhanced police services and collected from residents living the specialized P6 tax areas. “This is a wonderful thing,” said Piepho during the event. “I’m glad to see the town finally getting the services they deserve.” Food and beverages were provided by the Sheriff’s Posse, Aladino’s Pizza, the Boardwalk Grill, Discovery Bay Steak House and Safeway.

EDITORIALS, LETTERS & COMMENTARY

The time to speak up is fleeting Those who doubt that changes to the Delta are coming need only look as far as Sacramento, where there are currently five pieces of legislation – known as the Delta Bill Package – on the Senate floor. This bundle is believed by many to be the first step toward securing Gov. Schwarzenegger’s hoped-for legacy of a peripheral canal, which would forever change the fragile Delta ecosystem. But just because the plan DITORIAL has already built up a head of steam doesn’t mean the game is over. If Delta residents don’t make more noise very soon, however, it will be. Schwarzenegger is on the record as saying he supports a canal as a way to restore the Delta’s strained resources, and has enacted plans to construct the $3 million to $3 billion (depending upon which agency you ask) project under the Endangered Species Act. Northern Californians have come late to the governor’s party, but southern Californians have been there all along and are organized, focused and driven. For months now, supporters have been steadily campaigning for the Bay Delta Conservation Plan, a proposal that according to the Department of Water Resources Web site, “is to provide for the conservation of at-risk-species in the Delta and improve its reliability as the hub of the state’s water supply system.” In a matter of weeks, construction on the 2-Gate

E

Fish Protection Project – which is part of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan – will begin along Connection Slough and Old River near Discovery Bay. The PR blast is that the automatic gate project is a rerouting trick to protect the spawning Delta smelt from committing suicide as they swim into the water pumps on Old and Middle rivers in Byron. According to the entities involved – the State Department of Water Resources, the Federal Bureau of Reclamation and the Southern California Metropolitan Water District – this automatic gate system will save the smelt. Proponents also claim the gates will help preserve the struggling Delta ecosystem and sustain the 1,000 miles of waterways for generations to come. Boaters in East County are naturally concerned that the emergence of the fish gates will tax their ability to motor in and around the Delta, but there are many who contend the real issue is not about restricted recreation, but rather restricted water flow, and if Northern Californians don’t start speaking up – and soon – they will have little recourse. The good news, however, is that there has been some movement in East County to stop –or at least plug a hole in – the looming canal, including the recent Million Boat Float protest to Sacramento. Organizations such as the Contra Costa Water Agency are also fostering awareness by speaking before small groups and organizations. And, if you believe the pollsters, opponents are making some progress. A recently released survey

are partly correct, but I’d like to share a few teacher facts with you. First, we do consider ourselves lucky that we get to work with your kids for a living. It’s what we do, and it’s what we love or we wouldn’t show up every day with a smile on our face and a hug for your child. But we are more than that. We patch them up when they get that skinned knee or those blisters on the bars. We spend huge parts of our day fixing the wounds that hurt far more, the ones inflicted with words. We hug them when they cry because something happened at home that they just don’t know how to process. We don’t, either, but we care so much that when they hurt, we hurt too. When they are hungry, because they had no breakfast, we make sure we have food in our room for them to eat. We skip our breaks and work with kids in our room who are struggling academically or emotionally. We skip our lunch breaks to eat with our students who need that time with us for a hundred different reasons. We do instructional intervention after school to try to boost those children who need our help academically. We do it because we care. Our paid day ends at 3:30 p.m., but if just once, you drive by your child’s school at 5 p.m. you’ll see that most of us are still here, working hard, without pay. We come in on weekends to catch up on correcting the mountains of papers that must be

conducted by EMC Research on behalf of Restore the Delta, states that more than half of the 800 registered California voters contacted by telephone were opposed to a canal after being given “some additional information, including some basic facts about the canal and the Delta,” the report read. But the truth is that the governor doesn’t need the public’s blessing to build the canal; only the votes of his handpicked blue ribbon committee. Conversely, it is also true that there is little likelihood that one of the components of the canal – the 2-gate project – can be stopped. Still, there are ways to make a difference. Environmental public hearings will be held, and those are powerful places for people to stand up and lend their voices to the process. Public outcry might not stop the ERIs from going through, but they can be shaped into a better compromise, or at the very least, a less-horrible outcome. There are also multiple lawsuits already underway on behalf of farmers and local water districts and it’s probable that additional suits will follow. Delta dwellers might not be able to change what is already in motion, but that shouldn’t stop them from being counted – and soon. For more information on the canal and 2-gates project, go to www.restorethedelta.com. or www.calsport. org, where you can also click on a link to post comments to local legislators.

It’s time away from our own families, but we have to do it in order to be ready for the next week. Our families are not happy about it, but eventually, they give up arguing and realize it just comes with the job. We do it because we care. We stay late to conference with you, because you can’t, for whatever reason, take time off to come in on our time. We come back voluntarily for evening activities and performances. We are the ones you see at the soccer fields, baseball games and dance classes with the huge bag of papers that we are correcting madly while trying to be there for our own kids too. We take work with us on vacations and spend thousands of dollars a year out of our own pockets to buy the things we need to make your child’s experience the best that we possibly can. And, for all of this, we do not get compensated financially. Remember, our paid workday ended at 3:30. There is no such thing as overtime in teaching! We don’t think twice about any of it, though, because we do it because we care. As for all that time off, I don’t think most people know that we are paid for the 180 days your child is in school plus four teacher workdays per year. Our nine-month check is then chopped into 12 smaller ones so that we have income when school is not

in session. So you see, we are not paid for the time we do not work. That is probably the biggest misconception out there! I guess all I’m asking is that the next time you are about to do some teacher bashing in a public place where anyone can hear you, please try to remember that we work very hard for your children. We do the best that we possibly can, often without pay, but we do it because we care. Marie Wirth Bethel Island

A resident of Sycamore Court received annoying phone calls from an unknown person in Jamaica. Aug. 25, 12:31 p.m., Brentwood walk. Officers called to Kelly to stop so they could address the municipal code (loud engine noise) and vehicle code (driving on a sidewalk) violations, but Kelly tried to drive past them. As Kelly passed slowly by, one officer grabbed Kelly’s shirt to stop him and he fell off the motorcycle, but was not injured.

When officers activated their emergency lights and ordered the occupants out of the car, the driver drove the car directly at one of the officers. The officer jumped out of the way and fired on the car. The car struck the officer’s patrol car, exited the parking lot and crashed into a barrier on G Street. The three occupants fled the scene on foot. After an extensive search, a suspect believed to be a passenger was found running from the area and was arrested.

Letters from page 17A the Canadian health care system. When the program was proposed there were cries of socialism, fears that all the doctors would leave the country, etc. Now, all the Canadians I know are pleased with the single-pay program. My husband and I had all four parents grow old, become sick and die at ripe old ages in Canada. They were treated with excellent care right to the end. My mother-in-law had two knee replacements, an individually made leg brace, and three pacemaker surgeries in her 70s and 80s. These folks finally passed away with their nest eggs intact, no spending down required. My cousin, in her 70s the last five years of her life, had heart surgery, double hip replacement, cancer surgery and three series of chemo. My brother-in-law was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2000 and has been in treatment ever since. He is now 82. Prescription medicines are much cheaper even when imported from the U.S. Something’s wrong with this picture. I have seen no evidence of “let’s kill Grannie.” I’m sure it’s true that some Canadians have sought medical care in the U.S. for various reasons. At the same time, Americans are increasingly traveling to India for heart surgery and other serious operations because of the much lower costs for work done by equally well-trained physicians. My daughter has lived in Germany since 1972. She and her husband and one son are medical doctors there. They are

THEPRESS.NET

happy with the system even though they are not as wealthy as some of their American counterparts. As for the claim that America has the best care in the world, I suggest checking the Internet for Health Rankings by Country. The U.S. is 43rd, according to the World Health organization. It’s easy to understand why the insurance companies are worried. The U.S. is really their last remaining kingdom. Louise Jensen Brentwood

New park will be better than ever Editor: The Brentwood Art, Wine and Jazz festival was another huge success! Congratulations to everyone who put so much hard work into this effort. During the event, I talked to some people who thought City Park would be “going away” when the Civic Center is built. As mayor I was pleased to tell people about the plans for the redesigned and renovated park. Yes, it will be closed for a while during construction, but will come back as a bigger and better park than before. Some of the new features include: • A history walk that is full of new artwork and tells the public the “Brentwood Story” • A beautiful new fountain and plaza with lots of new seating and new mature palms • A redesigned children’s play area • Arcade spaces that will provide shade and event space see Letters page 20A

Insider’s take on wildfires Editor: I used to fight fires for the National Park Service in California. Please understand that some wildfires are natural occurrences that happen as part of the natural cycle. Other fires are often started by local people in the area that benefit whenever a fire breaks out – bus drivers, caterers, hotel operators, etc. Yes, this really does happen. When officials tell you to vacate your homes, please be aware that homes that have a higher dollar value than others will be the priority for firefighters. A word of advice from someone that has fought these fires: if it were me – I would never leave my home until I was dragged kicking and screaming by police. Why? Because, unless I were a wealthy

homeowner, no one would care about my home. I would stay and protect my home instead of my home being ignored by firefighters who have been directed to protect the second homes of millionaires who can afford to rebuild. This is not the fault of the firefighters, who are very brave and will do whatever it takes; it is a result of the priorities set in Sacramento by the power brokers. Bill Weber Discovery Bay

Criminalize pay spiking Editor: Pay spiking has become a very serious problem for today’s taxpayers. If spiking is not prohibited soon, the financial outfall will be catastrophic. In fact, it may be too late already. While a special independent district allows or may even assist in the act of spiking, the result is burdened by citizens not even in that district. This means my tax dollars in East County may pay for a spiked pension in a special district in West County. This is a scam and a pyramid scheme that costs millions of dollars not planned for by our nonsuspecting government leaders who plan budgeting. The people at the end or bottom of this pyramid will either receive a lower pension than expected or a new tax will be assessed to all citizens of the county/state to cover the unforeseen cost. While I do not know if a new tax can be forced on all of us when the pension money runs low due to this scheme, I do know people will financially suffer severely.

I expect it to be either less public services or much lower than expected pensions when this train derails. Like all pyramid schemes, a few reap huge benefits while the many suffer. What really adds to the disgust of spiking is when department heads or commissions encourage and conspire. These acts help ruin the public pension system. Unlike the private sector, where you can only draw what’s in the pension pot, the public sector guarantees the pension payments. The government has made scams by pyramid along with other types of fraud illegal. It also has made conspiracy and gifting public funds illegal. It is time our state legislatures create a real no-nonsense law that prohibits pay spiking. The law should include criminal penalties, fines, jail time and restitutions for this act. In addition, penalties and fines should extend to those who assist or conspire to spike pensions. John A. Gonzales Knightsen

Make council listen to citizens Editor: We (the residents of Knox Lane and surrounding area) are writing this letter in regard to the proposed Cedarwood estates subdivision. Discovery Builders is proposing to build 34 tract-style homes on a parcel of 14.95 acres in the middle of a long-established neighborhood of 1-acre ranchette homes. The property was formally three 5acre parcels, one of which was an almond orchard. Back in March of 2007, Discov-

ery Builders/Seeno Co. came in and blatantly tore out 162 trees without a permit. Six of these trees were protected heritage trees. They claimed this was a “miscommunication” between company and workers. (Haven’t we heard that one before?!) Now they are proposing 34 “flag lot”style homes in an area of already existing ranch-style homes all on one acre. Density for this area is 1.1 to 2.3 homes per acre. They could easily erect one home per acre but choose to put just under the maximum allowed. The residents of the area strongly oppose this maximum density “flag lot” plan and have addressed several City Council meetings with our concerns – to no avail. The current plan is in violation of many of the city’s own residential guidelines. We will again address the council at the next meeting, and hopefully this time we will be heard. We are tired of the council listening only to developers and not the citizens of Oakley. Please come and show your support for your fellow neighbors at the next council meeting. The next development they plan could be right in your front yard! Help keep the “small town” feel of Oakley alive. We don’t want to be another Antioch or Brentwood!

Rolling up sleeves, cleaning up creek The annual Marsh Creek Cleanup Day will take place Saturday, Sept. 19, from 9 a.m. to noon at seven locations along Marsh Creek and its tributaries, where volunteers will clean trash and debris from nearly 15 miles of creek. Friends of Marsh Creek Watershed (FOMCW) conducts this event in partnership with the cities of Oakley and Brentwood, the East Bay Regional Park District and the California Coastal Commission. Cleanup organizers look to build on the success of last year’s event, when more than 600 volunteers turned out to remove approximately 8,500 pounds of debris from the creek– the largest cleanup ever. More than 1,000 pounds of trash was recycled. “This is an event that promotes community service while helping create an interest in the local watershed,” said Diane Burgis, coordinator of Friends of Marsh Creek Watershed. “Folks see what gets into the creek from the storm drains, and cleaning up the creek helps motivate people to keep the creek from getting dirty again. This is an event that you see whole families doing together – it’s a real feel-good event!” Marsh Creek Cleanup is a part of the California Coastal Commission’s California Coastal Cleanup Day that also boasted its biggest cleanup last year, when more than 63,000 volunteers cleaned up

just under a million pounds of debris from creeks, rivers and lakes throughout California. The Coastal Commission has been working to steadily expand the effort; data gathered from cleanups in the past few years reveal the need to continue this expansion. Of the debris found on California’s beaches, 60 to 80 percent originates from inland or urban areas and washes out to the ocean. “California Coastal Cleanup Day is among the largest of many efforts that the state undertakes to safeguard our coast and ocean,” said Eben Schwartz, Statewide Director of the Cleanup. “The key to the success of the Coastal Cleanup Day, though, is the dedication of the volunteers who give their time and effort to this cause. Cleanup volunteers not only help remove debris from our state’s beaches and waterways; they take away a powerful message of the need to prevent pollution year-round.” Marsh Creek Cleanup is funded in part through grants awarded by the California Department of Conservation and the Contra Costa County Stewardship Grant administered by the Watershed Project. An REI grant has provided the funding for many of the expenses related to the Creek Cleanup Day effort. “Without REI’s generous support we wouldn’t have been able to take on this

very important project,” said Burgis. Crystal Geyser Alpine Spring Water, a major sponsor and partner of the California Coastal Commission, donated water for the Marsh Creek Cleanup as well as all other cleanup efforts participating with the California Coastal Cleanup Program. “CG Roxane LLC, producers of Crystal Geyser Alpine Spring Water, is proud to be a sponsor of California Coastal Cleanup Day,” said Ronan Papillaud, president and CEO of CG Roxane LLC, which has made environmental stewardship a priority in its company business model. “Working together with partners such as the California Coastal Cleanup Program will help to continue to beautify and preserve the state of California.” FOMCW has also recognized the Brentwood Press and the Monthly Grapevine for their generous sponsorship of the event. Due to economic constraints, the Cleanup event in Brentwood has been scaled down this year, eliminating the traditional lunch and celebration. There will be four cleanup sites in Brentwood: • Creekside Park on Crescent Way off of Balfour Road • Central Boulevard across from the Dainty Center • Bristow Middle School • The end of Rosebrook Terrace next to

Ron Nunn School Brentwood residents are encouraged to download the volunteer waivers on www.fomcw.org, which includes maps to show which sites are closest to where residents live or go to school. Creek Cleanup Day in Oakley hopes to expand by offering activities following the cleanup. There will be three Cleanup sites in Oakley: • Creekside Park on Creekside Way off of Laurel Avenue • The Cypress Avenue Bridge • The Delta Road Bridge Oakley residents are also encouraged to download volunteer waivers from the city of Oakley Web site, www.ci.oakley. ca.us, or at www.fomcw.org. Volunteers are encouraged to show up at the Creekside Park site. Groups are asked to pre-register by downloading waivers and calling Diane at 925-325-2908. Waivers will be collected, volunteers will be assigned sites and provided supplies. Groups are asked to preregister before Sept. 10, if possible. Volunteers are needed to help organize the event ahead of time and to help with set-up, break-down and registration of volunteers on the day of the event. Please contact Friends of Marsh Creek Watershed at 925-325-2908 or visit www. fomcw.org.

Hero from page 1A said, consistent with the fact that it was actually Garrido’s mother’s house. Still, said Gomes, some things were notably absent: “I did notice that there were no family pictures, no TV. Everything looked like a set.” Gomes also witnessed strange behavior similar to what others have reported since the case broke last week. Sometimes in the middle of a conversation, she said, Garrido would “burst into song.” Once, a couple of years ago, he also boasted of having recovered from his past excesses of “prostitution, pornography and masturbation,” Gomes said. “He never mentioned kidnapping.” Garrido also bragged to Gomes that his story would one day be told, and that it would amaze people. “He said, ‘The FBI is going to learn there’s more to schizophrenia than they think.’”

Diehards solid at Wood Bat The 18U and 16U Diehard Baseball Club teams kicked off the fall season in style, taking the field at the Twin Creeks Sports Complex in Sunnyvale recently and playing some inspired baseball. In their second tournament together, the 18U Diehard team pulled off an unexpected victory in the Twin Creeks Wood Bat Championship. Led by manager and former Major League ballplayer Tony Walker, Diehard went 3-2 over the weekend and won the championship game 7-4, reversing a 3-2 decision from Saturday’s pool play game. The winning pitcher was Tim Authaus; Chili Gutridge earned the save. Outstanding pitching and timely hitting was the recipe for the 18U squad all weekend long, and another highlight was a combined no-hitter thrown by Jordan Alexander and Gutridge. The 16U Diehards were playing their first

tournament together. Though Manager Ron Perkins’ players spent the weekend knocking the rust off, they still earned a shot at the title by going 2-0 on Sunday and making the penultimate game. Unfortunately, the 16U squad ran out of gas in the championship game, but they still did the program proud, playing good ball when their backs were against the wall. The operators of Diehard Baseball Club and Diehard Baseball Academy – Perkins, Gary Alexander and Ed Feldman – are looking forward to the fall and beyond. Diehard started the year with three teams, and now has five competitive teams (10U, 12U, 15U, 16U and 18U) for the fall. The program plans on having at least one team for every age group (9U through 14U) come next spring.

ing safety. As the Falcon’s quarterback, Conner pulled off a QB keeper around the right end for 36 yards and six points. Also playing offense and defense for the Falcons was Jason Foglia, whose tenacity on the field left his coaches cheering long after a play was completed. “Jason Foglia was a real standout,” Hazel said. “He was amazing.” Jason was steadfast and persistent in his blocking on offense, opening large holes for Conner and tailback Cody Maghuyop, who ran the ball nine times for 31 tough yards. Jason on defense made three unassisted tackles, including an eight-yard sack plus eight assisted tackles.

The Peewee Falcons reeled with enthusiasm at the chance to finally take on some true competition after a long month of grueling daily practice that started Aug. 1. Falcon Head Coach David Hazel said he was pleased with his team’s toughness on the grid: “But when it comes down to it, there’s lot of work to be done coming back as an undefeated team. We know everyone is gunning for us and we will have to step up our game.” Conner Barreras made Falcon fans proud by pulling down two interceptions while play-

Skier from page 1B flat water, so you get high speeds. Belgium is probably the roughest water we have raced. So it’s ‘can you stay up in the water and have the most endurance?’ It’s amazing to get to travel all around the world.” Much less glamorous is the exercise regimen she undergoes to compete at the top of her sport. She began training for the world competition last November, starting workouts at 5 a.m. on the Delta near Holland Tract where her family has a house. They get out there so early because “the water is nicer and there’s less people on the water when we are trying to train,” she said. “We go for an hour as hard as we can without stopping.” After that she rides a bike or jogs and then works out in a gym doing weight training for another hour. “It’s a lot of workout,” she admitted. “On the weekends we race to Pittsburg and back, doing fast runs. That’s all I did this summer – trained and raced. I have a few friends that understand completely what it is and are there for me through most of it. Others don’t understand but know, trainingwise, I wasn’t able to hang out with anyone.” With the world championship behind her, Kinslow is focusing on school and getting ready for basketball season, as she’ll be playing on the Falcons girls varsity team. But after that she’ll be back in water ski training, gearing up to compete when the racing season starts in March. Her goal is to win the gold medal in the next world championships in 2011. “I enjoy what I do and will keep doing it as long as I can,” she said. To learn more about water ski racing, go online to www.skirace.net.

Athletes from page 1B and looking forward to, the challenge. Press: Despite the school’s greatest success on the baseball diamond last season – winning its first NCS playoff game in school history – Head Baseball Coach Gene Bower was dismissed from his duties. Can you comment on the reasons why, and the plans for Patriots baseball this upcoming season? Cruickshank: Coach Bower stepped down after the season was over for personal reasons. We are currently in the process of hiring a new head coach for the upcoming season. I thank him for his hard work and dedication to the kids and this program over the past four years. Press: As athletic director, varsity boys head basketball coach, a teacher and a parent, you are obviously extremely busy the entire school year. How have you managed to balance all of these duties and excel at all of them? Cruickshank: I’m not sure how well I excel at all of them, but I always try to put the student-athlete first in decisions that I make. I find that when you do that, you often make the right decision. I don’t think that many people understand how difficult this position is. However, I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. I truly enjoy Heritage High School and our community, and am very proud to have been here from the start.

Keep fit while you’re traveling Traveling can leave you feeling more tired at the end of your trip than when you left. But making time for fitness when you’re on the road can keep your energy up and make your trip more enjoyable. Get wet. Choose a hotel with a swimming pool. Swimming is a great, low-impact exercise for all fitness levels. You can even walk lengths of the pool – the water resistance gives your workout more oomph. Hit the gym. Make sure the hotel you’ll be staying at has some kind of fitness room. Check its Web site or call ahead to find out what equipment it offers and what its operating hours are. If it doesn’t have a fitness room, ask about nearby fitness centers. Some hotels have agreements that allow guests to use the centers during their stay. Take a walk. Put on tennis shoes and take a walk around the hotel facilities. You’ll burn calories and get familiar with your surroundings. Ask hotel staff about nearby walk-

ing trails or malls that open early for walkers. Also, try wearing a pedometer to keep track of your steps. It’s a great motivator to keep you moving. In-room workout. Pack a resistance band or a workout DVD. They don’t take up much suitcase room and let you work up a sweat in the privacy of your own room. Check local stations for exercise programs or yoga workouts as well. Schedule it. Plan your fitness time as you would a business meeting or dinner date. If it’s on your calendar, you’ll be less likely to skip it. Another important part of keeping fit on the road is eating smart. It’s easy to indulge in road-trip food and overdo it on tempting desserts. But too much of a good thing can sap your energy and increase your weight. Some simple things you can do: • Eat a better breakfast. When you hit the breakfast buffet, skip the pastries and fill up on lean protein, fresh fruits and whole-grain toast or oatmeal. You’ll be more energized and less likely to snack on junk later. Many hotels offer free breakfast buffets with plenty of healthier options to choose from, and most Radisson Hotels & Resorts in the U.S. offer Tasteful Choices lifestyle menu options. • Control portions. Most restaurants put more on a plate than one person should eat at a single sitting. Don’t feel obligated to clean your plate – consider splitting the meal with a friend. • Eat slowly. It takes about 20 minutes for the stomach’s message of “I’ve had enough” to reach the brain. Sip your water, eat slowly and give your body time to figure out when to stop. Keeping fit on the road doesn’t need to be hard. Stay active and eat smart, and you’ll enjoy your time away – and hit the ground running when you get back home. – Courtesy of Family Features

Scrapping for the cure Scrapbook enthusiasts will mix, mingle and scrap for a cure for cancer on Sept. 26 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Iron House Elementary School in Oakley. The party is part of a nationwide Scrap Pink Fundraiser Day Crop event. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Denise Iles, who is helping to organize the Oakley event, came up with the idea for a local celebration after attending a Scrap Pink party in St. Helena. “I had such a great time with my girlfriends (at the St. Helena event) that I decided we should do a local event in

our community,” she said. “I have had several family members and friends who have battled with different types of cancer, so to honor them, we are hosting this event.” Registration for the Scrap Pink Fundraiser is $45; $55 at the door. The event includes lunch, dinner, snacks, bottled water, coffee, assorted drinks, and features raffle prize drawings. Each admission includes one free raffle ticket. Additional tickets are available. To pre-register, or for additional information, call 925917-9000, 925-207-1976, or visit www. croptillyoudropretreats.com.

Two minutes to save a life September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Prostate testing is critical to men, especially those over the age of 50. CareMore Health Plan, one of the leading Medicare Advantage health plans for seniors, is encouraging men to get tested regularly. A simple blood test called Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) is an important tool used to pinpoint prostate cancer. Prostate cancer often goes undetected until the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. CareMore physicians

strongly recommend screening as early as the age of 40 to promote early detection. A Digital Rectal Exam and blood test is also recommended. While you might find the exam unsettling or embarrassing, it takes less than two minutes and could save your life. The mortality rate for those with prostate cancer has been decreasing due to increased awareness and regular testing. CareMore physicians hope that September generates a renewed urgency in men to be screened on a regular basis.

Tall ship to drop anchor in Antioch The Grays Harbor Historical Seaport has announced its tall ship Hawaiian Chieftain’s ports of call for 2009-10: Hands-on History for Youth. The tour emphasizes the Hawaiian Chieftain’s mission of delivering valuable – and in some cases, life-changing – educational experiences for young people, many of whom go on to careers in the maritime trades, the Navy and the Coast Guard. Scheduled ports of call for December include Antioch and Rio Vista. At each port, Hawaiian Chieftain hosts groups from K-12 classrooms for hands-on living history programs. Educators interested in scheduling one-hour dockside or threehour sailing educational programs should contact Reasa Shuck at 360-589-2299 or e-mail rshuck@historicalseaport.org. Hawaiian Chieftain will also welcome visitors for walk-on tours, three-hour Adventure Sails, and Passages, one-way extended tall ship experiences from one port of call to the next, similar to those of 18th-century travelers. Schedule details and online ticket sales are available at www.historicalseaport.org. The tall ship Lady Washington, which normally accompanies Hawaiian Chieftain to California, will remain in Aberdeen for planned maintenance. The Seaport will replace the ship’s outdated

engine with a new engine that meets current environmental standards. The Seaport will also upgrade the ship’s rigging. The topsail ketch Hawaiian Chieftain is a replica of a typical European merchant trader of the turn of the 19th century. Launched in 1988, she was originally designed for cargo trade among the Hawaiian Islands. Her hull shape and rigging are similar to those of Spanish explorers’ ships used in the expeditions of the late 18th century along the Washington, Oregon and California coasts. The modern ship was acquired by the Historical Seaport in 2004 after a long career in the San Francisco Bay Area.

OBITUARY

First anniversary

Kathleen Elizabeth Overturf

Carrie-Ana Carone and Steve Lenthe were married on Aug. 23, 2008 at the Mitchell Katz Winery- Palm Event Center in Pleasanton. The couple honeymooned in Fiji. Carrie-Ana is the daughter of Ana and Robert Carone of Brentwood. Steve is the son of Hannelore and Dieter Lenthe of Modesto. Carrie-Ana and Steve have three beautiful boys – Hunter, 13; Hayden, 10; and Holden, 7. Both Carrie-Ana and Steve work for the government and currently reside in Discovery Bay.

Kathleen Elizabeth Overturf, 55, passed away peacefully in her home on Aug. 30 surrounded by family, after a long and courageous battle with ovarian cancer. A longtime resident of Brentwood, Kathy was very active in her church, the Boy Scout community, and was a well-loved middle school science teacher. She is remembered with deep affection and is survived by her husband, George; son, Chip (George IV); sister, Karol Hill; brother, Kevin Freeman; step-mother, Betty Freeman, step-daughter, Tiffany Pociecha and her husband, Jeff; step-son, Geoff Overturf and his wife, Shannon; granddaughter, Audrey; as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews and close friends at St. Albans Church, O’Hara Park School and Boy Scout Troop 298.

Kathy touched many lives while she was here and her memory will live on in the hearts of those who loved her. She will always be remembered for the love and care she showed everyone she came in contact with, whether it was her students, scouts, co-workers or friends. Kathy was active in increasing awareness of ovarian cancer and participated in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life for the last two years, where a relay team named in her honor raised several thousand dollars for cancer research. She loved quilting, gardening – in particular, her roses – traveling, playing with her dogs, and always took great pride in her children’s accomplishments. A celebration of her life was held at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Oakley. In lieu of flow-

ers, donations may be made to The CaringBridge, The American Cancer Society or the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.
