Mistrust Extreme fundraising remains W regarding Delta plan by Dave Roberts Staff Writer Local advocates for the Delta are wary of a plan whose purpose is to save the Delta, based on the questions and concerns voiced by many of the hundred people in the Brentwood Senior Center Saturday morning for a workshop on the Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP). Among the plan’s chief critics is a group called Restore the Delta (RTD). Oakley City Councilman Bruce Connelley and RTD Board Member Roger Mammon stood outside of the center passing out a flier that argues that the BDCP is “a tool for ensuring reliable water supplies for export … (and) a tool for the Schwarzenegger peripheral canal strategy.” Among its many recommendations, the BDCP calls for the construction of a canal along

Local advocates are concerned that this would result in decreased water quality in the southwest Delta where East County is located. The flier criticizes the representation on

the BDCP steering committee, arguing that the membership is skewed toward those favoring the canal plan. And it slams the BDCP workshops (the meeting in Brentwood was the first of four scheduled over 10 days in Delta communities), see Delta page 21A

More woes for family of ailing child by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Sleep is not Elizabeth Tanner’s friend these days, which is understandable given the grave illness of her four-year-old son Aaron. But even before it was determined that Aaron would need a rare heart and kidney transplant, the Brentwood resident was lying awake nights worrying about something else – the mortgage. “It was stressful, we’re like a lot of homeowners (with upside down loans), and it caused a lot of sleepless nights,” said Tanner. “It was a worry.” But when she and her husband Mark were approved for a loan modification last October, Tanner was hopeful she would soon be getting a better night’s sleep. And for a while she did. “Once we got the loan redone, we thought, ‘now we can afford to make our payments, and we’ll be OK,’” said Tanner. “Unfortunately that ended up not being the case.” According to Tanner, when the

AARON TANNER loan was redone last year – through Bank of America –unbeknownst to them, their property taxes were factored into the monthly payments along with the mortgage. But because the first payments were rolled into the initial loan remodification and not due again for another six months, the Tanners were unaware of the situation and continued to just pay their monthly mortgage payment of $2,900. “We were told the taxes wouldn’t be included in the monthly payment, and we would have been fine with it if they were, but we were specifically told that wasn’t

going to be the case,” said Tanner. So by the time the Tanners were notified by the bank in June that their account was in arrears, they already owed thousands of dollars in back taxes. Today that number – which includes late fees, insurance and back taxes – is up to nearly $20,000, and without some kind of reprieve, the Tanners may very well lose their home. “We have basically been in arrears of $4,000 a month, according to the bank,” said Tanner, “We recently received a letter saying that unless we pay up in full, they will begin foreclosure proceedings. Even though we’ve continued to pay our mortgage every month, they (the bank) have said that unless we can pay it all, don’t bother paying anything.” Tanner said the bank has refused to modify the loan again, and told her that leniency can only be granted if one of the signatories on the loan, not one of their children, is ill. “They (the bank) say they are sorry but there is nothing they can

do,” said Tanner. “And it’s frustrating because I get a different person every time I call. At this point we’re running out of options, and we have other things we are worrying about (Aaron’s illness).” But help may be on the way. Oakley City Councilman Jim Frazier and his wife Janet met the Tanners a few weeks ago when they dropped off some gift bags from their organization The Network of Care, which provides food to families of hospitalized children. “We spoke for quite awhile about their son and their (financial) situation, and said we would try to help any way we could,” said Frazier. “So I referred their case to the guys with the horsepower.” The horsepower turned out to be California State Sen. Mark DeSaulnier and Assemblywoman Joan Buchanan. Susanna Schlendorf, district representative for Buchanan’s office, said they are trying to help. “We are doing everything we see Woes page 21A

Scarecrows take over First Street by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Autumn came early to downtown Brentwood last week as locals honored the changing of the seasons with a celebratory Harvest Festival. Last Thursday’s festival featured the usual Downtown Thursday attractions such as live music and vendor booths, but it was the 23 scarecrows lining First Street that stole the show. The inaugural scarecrow building contest resulted in a cluster of unique and less-than scary designs as entrants used everything from straw and hay to balloons and ice cream cups to construct their crow-repellant creatures. The giant Lego scarecrow designed by Discovery Bay Elementary first graders David Dove and Kintado Hanna was a hit with the crowd. “We wanted it to look like something out of a video game,” David explained after receiving the third place ribbon for their creation. “We used cardboard, cups, Styrofoam and straw to make it. It was a lot of fun to make.” “It’s really cool that we won,” Kintado added. “I can’t wait to tell my friends.” There were two categories of competition, one for kids and one for adults. Top winners in both categories received $150. However, the top winners in both categories decided not to keep their winnings. “We’re going to donate the money to a friend who’s getting married soon,” said Rachel Guillian, whose witch scarecrow took top honors in the adult division. “We’re hoping this prize money will help them out.” Ethan and Taylor Basker’s family, who won first prize in the kids’ division with their “Wizard of Oz”-inspired scarecrow, is also a friend of the bride-to-be, so the boys are donat-

ing their winnings as well. “The three families decided that we’d give this scarecrow building contest a try, and if we were lucky enough to win, we’d give away the money,” said Robin Evanson, who won $50 as third prize winner in the adult category. “We’re so blessed that we were fortunate enough to win. These scarecrows were a lot of fun to put together – even more so when you’re doing it for a good cause. I hope we get to do it again next year. This is such a fun event that the community gets to take part in. We need more things like this.” Brentwood City Councilman Bob Brockman, who served as judge along with Brentwood City Manager Donna Landeros and Brentwood Chamber of Commerce President Karen Spann, said he took a deep philosophical approach to assessing the entries. “It was a long, trying process with three great minds delving into the depths of their childhoods to choose the best scarecrow.” Spann laughed at Brockman’s methods. “Maybe that’s how he was deciding how to vote, but I was judging based on the creativity of the scarecrow – seeing how they decided to put things together. I was looking for those little details, but I was also looking for the best traditional representation of a scarecrow.” Ava Ford, the youngest winner at age 3, took home second place for her simplistic design which involved stuffing blue jeans and a sweatshirt with newspaper. Ava was too excited about winning to talk about her scarecrow but did manage to muster the patience to blurt out that she’d like to buy candy with her $100 in prize money. Traci Strahlendrof, whose diva scarecrow “Sheryl Crow” won second prize in the adult division, said she wasn’t sure what she’d do with her prize money as she was still trying to get over the shock of receiving a ribbon. “I didn’t even think I’d win,” said the owner of Amidst the Chaos, who set up a vendor booth at the festival. “I figured

We were going to take her apart after tonight, but now that she’s a prize-winning scarecrow, maybe we’ll keep her for Halloween.” Downtown Thursday organizer Lyle Miller said based on the turn out, he’d like to make the scarecrow building contest an annual event. “The city has been so supportive of our programs,” Miller said. “If we get another grant from the city and they continue to support us, we’ll definitely be back next year.”

Jackson blasts mortgage lenders by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

The Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. came to Antioch, ground zero for the foreclosure crisis in the county, on Sept. 17 to compare mortgage lenders to thieves and urge people to fight back instead of allowing their homes to be foreclosed. Jackson’s 54-minute speech in the packed Antioch Church Family building on E. 18th Street was billed as a town hall meeting. But it more resembled an old-fashioned revival meeting that included sermons from several pastors, a rousing gospel performance, shouted “amens� and repetition of Jackson’s words in call-and-response fashion as people waved fans to ward off the heat. Jackson’s main target was mortgage lenders, whom he referred to as “banksters� and equated with the notorious bank and train robber Jesse James. “This housing crisis is driven by unfair rules,� said Jackson “The robber Jesse James got paid twice. He got paid when he robbed you with an adjustable mortgage, and then he also got the (federal) stimulus (money). Jesse James stole on the front side and got bailed out on the backside. The victims are facing foreclosure.� Jackson said that his current crusade is the fourth major battle that has been fought in this country on behalf of victimized people. “We face one of the most chilling moments in the history of our nation,� he said. “I submit to you that we never lost a battle that we fought, and never won a battle unless we fought. We fought the battle against slavery, and we won. We fought the battle against Jim Crow, and won. We fought the battle for women’s right to vote, and we won. We fought the battle for bilingual education, and we won.

Jesse Jackson compares mortgage lenders to Jesse James in a speech in Antioch last week. “You can be out of slavery, first stage, out of Jim Crow, second stage, have the right to vote, and still be out of your house because it was stolen by banksters. Out of slavery, out of Jim Crow, the right to vote – and out of a job, out of health care, out of education, out of a house. So now we fight in this fourth stage to democratize opportunity, not democratize the vote.� Jackson, who may be the second most famous community organizer in the country after President Obama, said that the way to democratize opportunity is to organize and fight back.

“We need to build an organization,� he said. “God said, ‘Noah, there’s a storm coming and there will be a flood.’ He did not tell Noah to go and teach swimming lessons. He said build an ark, build an organization, build an infrastructure. You can swim, but you cannot swim 40 days and nights without stopping. “We have to build an infrastructure. The banksters have infrastructure. We cannot confront the banks unless we have the infrastructure to give us our power. We need new rules, new rules, new rules, fair rules, more rules, fair rules. We are organizing in 50 markets. People are facing the thievery and violation of taking their homes. On the first Tuesday of every month (in Atlanta) they have foreclosure auctions – like the old slave auctions. “Jesse James has lobbies – he’s a thief with lobbies. Citizens need the power of bankruptcy laws so citizens can negotiate with banks. We need consumer protection enforced. We need restructured loans, not repossessed homes. We must stand up; we are not going to leave our house. We are going to stand right here, redo the deal and stay in my house. Stay in my house, stay in my house and redo the deal. “We bailed out the banks; we didn’t bail out the homeowners. So the banks got the windfall, and we got the house fall. So we need to organize some neighborhood resistance; some squatters rights. Squat in your house and stay until something happens.� Before concluding his speech with a prayer, Jackson asked people to stand based on who their mortgage lender is and to meet in groups with the event organizers Kay Trail and Roger Henry. Forms were also handed out for those wanting help from the Rainbow PUSH Coalition to remodify their home loan. Jackson also asked people to join him in a prayer vigil, rally and march the following day to the Federal Reserve Bank in San Francisco.

Oakley’s Clothesline a mini-Macy’s by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Ricky Crum has learned quite a bit in the six months since he started managing The Clothesline in Oakley. “I’ve learned that women definitely like to browse,” laughed Crum. “And I’ve also learned the importance of offering variety and selection.” But the biggest thing Crum’s learned is that if you give women a place to go for brand-name, quality clothing without the high-end price tag, they will come and shop. And shop, and shop. “We’ve been pretty busy since people have discovered us,” said Crum. “We’d been kind of a best-kept secret, but that’s starting to change.” Catering to young teens and adults, The Clothesline’s merchandise comes directly from Macy’s overstocked closets. Crum purchases the items – seasonal dependent – in bulk for the store. “All of our clothes come from Macy’s, and then we sell them at about 70 percent off the retail price. We’re like a Ross or Marshalls but with no defects or irregulars,” he said. “Everything is brand new and perfect.” Perfect as in top-end designers such as Liz Claiborne, Lucky Brand, Calvin Klein and Guess, to name a few, in all ranges from juniors to plus sizes. “We’re like a mini-Macy’s,” said Crum, who is looking to add shoes, purses, make-

Rachel Moss discovered The Clothesline a few months ago and admits to being skeptical at first. “I wasn’t sure what kind of place it really was at first,” said Moss, who bought a designer label sweatshirt originally priced at $50 for $14.99. “But I found a lot of cute stuff; great brands at great prices, really. I was surprised.” Crum says that most of his customers are like Moss: apprehensive of a deal that seems too good to be true. But once they’ve seen the merchandise, and prices, for them-

selves, they’re hooked. “I would say that my average shopper is the PTA mom or the soccer mom who comes in with her daughter and stays for herself,” said Crum. “They come in for back-to-school items and find out that is it all Macy’s and all brand new.” And to sweeten the deal a little, Crum also offers an additional discount. For those who spend $50, he offers a 10-percent discount. If shoppers purchase $50 to $75, they get 15 percent off; for those who buy $75 to $100, they can look forward to a 20percent discount. And for anything over

$100, it’s 25 percent off. “It’s a good deal that allows everyone to save,” he said. “I tell people to bring in a couple of friends, combine your order and save even more. We definitely have a lot of return customers.” And Moss is one of them. “I will definitely be back,” she said. “I had a great experience; I’m going to have trouble shopping anywhere else from now on.” The Clothesline is located at 3330 Main St. in Oakley.

HARD LOAN MODS – PART III [This is the third part in a series of articles about why some loan modifications are so hard to get approved.] This week I’ll discuss what is probably the #1 reason why loans are hard to modify, the fact that we aren’t really sure WHO owns the rights to your loan. It’s true, this is not an exaggeration. In the old days, town citizens would deposit their money with their local bank or savings and loan, who would then loan the money out to other citizens at a higher rate. If you defaulted on the loan, you would be hearing from someone from your local bank, maybe even the president if your loan was big enough. But that all changed a few years back. The institution who made you the loan would often sell the loan to someone else, who might sell it to someone else. That wasn’t so bad, you just had to figure out who was the last one to buy your loan. Where it really got confusing is when they started “bundling” loans together into a package of loans. Then Wall St. firms sold investors bonds that were backed by these bundles of loans. These are called “mortgage-backed securities,” “collateralized debt obligations,” or “derivatives.” They were like a mutual fund made up

of mortgages instead of stocks. Because these were deemed “safe,” many institutional investors (pension funds, insurance companies, etc.) bought these bonds. And to further complicate things, some investors bought these bonds, then used them for collateral to get other loans. And then that lender would use THAT loan as collateral for yet another loan. Each time it happened, it added one more layer of complexity, and another slate of entities with a legal interest in your loan. So you can see how confusing it can get to find out who the legal owner of your mortgage is, since it’s been sliced, diced and had other liens placed on it. In many cases, ALL the investors that have an interest in your mortgage need to OK the loan modification. It’s hard enough when it’s one firm, but imagine how difficult it is if there were 10, 20 or 100 entities that could say they own a piece of your loan.

EDUCATION

LMC offers Career Pathways program for at-risk youth The Workforce Development Board of Contra Costa County has launched its Career Pathways Program for 2009 at Los Medanos College. The program creates college and career pathways for foster care, disadvantaged and out-of-school youth between the ages of 16 and 24 who qualify as low income, and guides these young people to post-secondary education and employment in high-wage, high-growth career sectors. “It is extremely difficult for at-risk youth to pursue education and employment opportunities because of the barriers they face,” said Linda Chandler, strategic planner for the Workforce Development Board. “The Career Pathways Program allows youth to develop a positive foundation for their future and shows them there is hope and more importantly, help. By engaging the youth through strong employment and education programs, the Workforce Development Board promotes action on issues impacting the success of young people, giving them opportunities they would not have otherwise.” The 14-week program began in 2005 and provides youth with the skills and social and financial support necessary to attain economic self sufficiency and succeed in the future job market. At the conclusion of the program, graduates will be enrolled at participating community colleges, have full access to financial aid and will be placed in part-time jobs. The program consists of four, three-unit classes that will teach students basic reading, writing, math and study skills. Child and career development counseling are also part of the curriculum. The Workforce Development

Board provides food, transportation, supplies, tutoring and academic counseling for all of the students enrolled in the program. In addition, case management services are provided by the Workforce Development Board to assist in finding housing, jobs and other necessary means of independent survival. At the completion of the program, the case manager will remain in contact with the youth to offer additional support. As a result, many alumni have returned to the college for extended education and also serve as a source of encouragement for the next graduating class. The program is managed by the Contra Costa Partnership, which includes the Workforce Development Board of Contra Costa County and its Youth Council, the Contra Costa Children and Family Services Agency/Independent Living Skills Program, Los Medanos Community College, Pittsburg Adult School and the East Bay Career Advancement Academy. The Career Pathways Program recruits through the Cal Works program, regional probation departments, EASTBAY Works One-Stop Centers, schools, friends and case managers. A graduation ceremony for 2009 will take place in December. So far, 75 students have graduated from the Career Pathways Program and as a result, 32 of those graduates are attending various community colleges in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. For more information call the Workforce Development Board of Contra Costa County at 925-646-5239.

Rally, parade pump up Homecoming win by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Boys in dresses, a Santa on roller skates and a large dancing can of Campbell’s soup can only mean one thing: it’s Homecoming time at Liberty High. Skits by the Homecoming Court brought extra sizzle to an already sweltering afternoon during the school’s Homecoming Rally last Friday, with the fun culminating in the crowning of King Iker Garcia and Queen Taylor Acamo. “This is amazing,” Acamo said as family and friends showered her with congratulations. “I never thought I’d be queen. It’s really overwhelming, but I’m so happy. Being a part of the rally was unlike anything I’ve ever done before, and now I’m just in shock.” Garcia was equally taken aback by the honor. “My friends kept telling me that I’d win. They told me they all voted for me, but I kept saying ‘we’ll see.’ I can’t believe this. I feel really happy right now. I’ve got to call my mom.” Other members of the Homecoming court included Princesses Elizabeth Day, Mo du-Long, Amy Fox, Helen Harden, Lyndsey Murphy, Samantha Ramos, Chelsea Revel, Katelyn Tobar and Dasha Zmachynskaya. The 2009 Princes are Zach Bonte, Jason Fancey, Justin Finley, Felix Navarro, Cody Peralta, Dillon Richey, Michael Santiago, Garrett Slocum and Jake Tickner. The energy at the rally pumped students up for the football game later that evening with see Homecoming page 12A

Buddy car wash pays off Students from the LUHSD Lifeskills Program and Best Buddies Club earned more than $850 washing cars last month, thanks to tremendous team work and lots of local heart. According to Lifeskills teacher Joy Supplee, “Cars began arriving at 8:45 and continued nonstop until 12:15. The generous donations and support from the community was awe inspiring.” Best Buddies Club President Andrew Bigley, Treasurer Sara Castro, Secretary Starkisha Haskell and 20 prospective members all braved the heat and rolled up their sleeves to support the cause. The Brentwood Press announced the Best Buddies Car Wash,

which resulted in more than $100 in early contributions. Part of the money earned will allow Andrew to attend training in Berkeley for local chapter presidents, and the rest will be used to support Best Buddies club activities. ACE Hardware owner Frank Aiello donated the parking lot location, and the families of Colin Feldmeier, Damone Estrada, Daniel Olmos, Allex Valdivia, Alyssa Ogden, Jennifer Romero, Jose Vazquez, Gage van Emmerik, and Lucas Redmond were on hand to make the day a great success. Weather permitting, the next car wash is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 17, at Liberty High School. –Contributed by Sarah Singrin

This inaugural event honored the first freshman class at this new career pathway program located on the campus of Deer Valley High School. A broad contingency of local elected officials and community dignitaries were in attendance to celebrate the dedication of this new educational program. This ceremony coincided with Constitution Day, commemorating the signing of the United States Constitution. Boy Scouts from Troop 450 added to the dignity of this event by presenting the colors.

The students received words of inspiration and support from Mayor Pro Tem Mary Rocha, Antioch Police Chief Jim Hyde, Lia Munoz representing District Seven Senator Mark DeSaulnier, Fifth District County Supervisor Federal Glover, and Eleventh District Assemblyman Tom Torlakson. A special ribbon cutting ceremony and dedication was provided by the Antioch Chamber of Commerce which added a special touch to this important event.

Foundation seeks board members The LUHSD Educational Foundation is seeking to fill four vacancies on its Board of Directors with individuals who would like an opportunity to make a difference in their community. According to the Board President Karen Rarey, “The purpose of the Educational Foundation is to enrich and enhance the educational opportunities within the Liberty Union High School District, something that is vital for this district especially with all the state budget cuts and the dismal economy we are all facing.” Since its formation in 1996, the LUHSD Educational Foundation has contributed well over $100,000 in annual student scholarships at each site and grants for school projects which would otherwise not occur. Bolstered by determination and secure in the knowledge that nearly every student within LUHSD’s 350 square-mile expanse will attend one of its high schools, members of the Educational Foundation have a very broad base from which to attract strong leaders and organizers. Terms of services are only two years, and meetings are held on the second Monday of each month. “Having a thriving Education Foundation is extremely important to a public school district; the highest performing high schools in the Bay Area generally have great support from the community they serve,” said LUHSD Superintendent Jerry Glenn. “This support is all the more essential when the state short-changes us as they have these past two years.” The Educational Foundation plans to raise its profile this year through an awareness campaign that will highlight projects made possible by foundation funding. Grants are competitive, and are bestowed twice per year to classroom teachers and para-professionals dedicated to serving students. Liberty High’s Nichole Ambrose is thrilled that the electronic devices provided by the Foundation have helped more students than she anticipated. “We have students from other classrooms come to use them,” she said. LUHSD’s 2009 Teacher of the Year honoree Steve Ernest plans to use his grant award to enhance the recording capabilities and gain feedback to improve the performances of Heritage High’s music students. The Liberty Union High School District Educational Foundation is a nonprofit organization and donations are taxdeductible. If you would like to become an active member of a dedicated team that supports over 7,000 LUHSD students and 650 faculty and staff members, contact Rarey at krarey@gmail.com. For those who would like to contribute funding, checks should be made out to the Liberty Union High School District Educational Foundation and sent to: Liberty Union High School District, 20 Oak Street, Brentwood, CA 94513.

Teachers give hope for the future Editor: Thursday, September 17, 2009, was memorable for many living in Antioch. The Reverend Jesse Jackson was in town that night and many flocked to hear him speak. At Deer Valley High School parents were gathering to hear school board members speak about the recent shooting of a student near the school and the subsequent shut down. The City of Antioch was still reeling from the discovery of a young woman who had been kidnapped 18 years ago and was discovered living on the outskirts of Antioch in the unincorporated area of Contra Costa County. The town was subdued to say the least. However, unbeknownst to Jesse Jackson and many others, an event was about to unfold that would instill those attending with purpose and a real sense of hope for the future. Approximately 100 people were gathered at the Lone Tree Golf Course Event Center to honor the men and women who make a difference in children’s lives every school day. A dinner was being hosted by the Antioch Schools Education Foundation. Janet Muirragui, Teacher Representative of the Year; Fran Miles, Employee of the Year, Kellie Cavallaro and Terri Clarke, finalists, were the focus of everyone in the room. Peter Garcia, resident of Los Medanos College, was the guest speaker and Donald Gill, superintendent of schools, was the master of ceremonies. These two men spoke with passion and commitment. It was evident they understood the hard work and dedication of those who choose education as their profession/passion. Their audience was a mixed group indeed; elected officials, colleagues, spouses, parents, children, nominees, finalists and winners of the foundation’s Mary Allan Fellows Award. Mary Allan, for whom the Fellows Award is named, had the audience spellbound as she shared what she had learned about the special teachers we have in our schools. She personalized each one individually: Janet Muirragui, Lisa Nussbaum and

EDITOR A shocker

Editor: I was astounded to read the Sept. 11 article titled “Web contract spurs offline discussion.” The fact that our CSD board decided to hire the highest bidder to revamp the current Web site was not so surprising, but when the other bids came in at $6,100 and $7,000 and the winner was a bid of $23,500 ($3,500) over the project cap I find that a shock. Until now, I just read “Letters to the Editor” and tried to stay out of the politics of the town but I think that, under the circumstances, it is time for all Discovery Bay residents, including myself, to begin paying attention to our local boards rather than reading about them after the fact. Jacqueline Carabello Discovery Bay

It’s not about the swing Editor: The time is 8:30 a.m. I called my mom to ask where she was, and she arrived home to tell me a story of a woman and a swing. The story aggravated me to such a point I had to express it somehow. As a senior at Heritage High school, I’ve seen my share of rude behavior. But when it comes to my little town, the place I call home, where I grew up… It hurts. A free swing is a free swing. It’s not plated with gold, it wasn’t crafted by the hands of the gods. It’s a free swing. But when a free swing becomes a battle with another resident, you can begin to see the cracking on the surface of the shallow kindness that we’ve come to know in our little town. Discovery Bay, a community that once offered peace of mind and that long-desired small-town feel, has vanished. Many things could be to blame, but the clear deterioration of people’s common courtesy is nothing less than concerning. Where a smile once sat on their faces, now a wicked grimace takes its place; where once the door would be held open for you, now you’re expected to hold open the door. Less of that “We’re neighbors’” feel, and more of that “I’m so much better than you, oh, and not to mention more important,” attitude. Whatever happened to “Love thy neighbor?” From being looked over in line, to having swings grabbed out from underneath you, Discovery Bay is losing its charm. As a previous resident of San Jose, a place not really known for its kindhearted people, I can say that our beloved Discovery Bay is starting to take on that same shape. If I can be allowed, I’d like to reminisce about an experience I had not too long ago. While driving home from a long day of school and extracurricular activities, I was faced with a woman in a white auto that just had to get in front of me. It seemed like a matter of life and death. So, being ever the passive one, I allowed her, at 55 mph, to get in front of me (just so we’re all clear, the speed limit on Discovery Bay Blvd is 40

mph). But the list of rude doesn’t end there. If I were to extrapolate, I’m sure it would take up the entire Discovery Bay Press (or at least the editorial section). From restaurants to free swings, the rudeness is appalling, and should concern every resident of Discovery Bay. It seems everywhere you look in Discovery Bay, you can see it decaying. Maybe we should all stop and think about why we moved here, to (bring) that small-town feel back to the place I call home. It only takes one gesture and it starts with me. What about you? It’s not about the swing. Haley Young Discovery Bay

Knox Lane project not wanted Editor: On September 16, 2009, the residents of Knox Lane filed a petition signed by more than 10 percent of the registered voters of the city of Oakley with the city clerk. This petition, authorized by the State Election Code, requires that the City Council of Oakley either repeal its decision of July 11, 2009 approving the Cedarwood Estates subdivision in our neighborhood, or put the matter on the ballot for the city’s voters to decide. Over the next 30 days, the County Registrar will check the validity of each voter’s signature. Thereafter, the City Council will choose its option. We ask the Council, if it chooses to put the matter up to the voters, to require that the developer seeking this project, Discovery Builders, pay the costs of the election, not the taxpayers. We gratefully thank the residents of Oakley for supporting our effort by helping us get over 10 percent of the voters’ signatures in less than one week! Your support is much appreciated! After speaking to each of you, we know that the people of Oakley do care about our city and want low density, well thought-out developments. This petition was necessary because of Discovery Builders’ ignoring residents’ concerns in the planning process and the City Council’s acceptance of that. We appeared at the Planning Commission in February and the Commission, to its credit, continued the project and told Discovery Builders to work with us. Unfortunately, the Council disbanded the Planning Commission. Although Discovery Builders initially worked with us, they quickly stopped when city staff supported their insistence on submitting a crowded flag lot subdivision with some homes lacking curbs and gutters and the potential for drainage problems as well as replacing a masonry wall along Michelle Lane with a wooden fence. Twice we went to the City Council to point out the failure of this project to meet the city’s own residential guidelines and each time we were ignored. Now because of your support, we have chance to start over. If you want to stop this type of out-ofsee Letters page 16A

Fun rolls on despite the recession Oakley’s Ethan Moeckel, 9, shows his moves on a Dance Revolution game while mom Libbie looks on at the GolfNGames arcade on Tuesday. Below, Jeff Warrenburg, known as “Mr. Fun,” at Paradise Skate, owns three entertainment centers in Antioch.

by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

It’s safe to say that Antioch – indeed, all of East County – would be a less fun place if not for Jeff Warrenburg. The owner of GolfNGames Family Fun Center, Paradise Skate (motto “Family Fun on Wheels”) and the Antioch Paintball Park rightfully deserves his nickname. “People do know me as ‘Mr. Fun,’” said Warrenburg. “For me it’s really rewarding to watch the families come out together. I believe that families that play together, stay together. In the evenings I see senior citizens playing golf. I even enjoy playing the course. I would say I’m a big kid – a 43-year-old kid. I don’t think I will ever grow up.” The Peter Pan phase of his life began 10 years ago. Until then he’d been a truck driver living in the Fremont area. In the course of volunteering for 14 years at an annual festival in Newark he got to know the guy who ran the carnival at the festival, who owned the Pixieland playground in Concord, was getting ready to retire and looking to sell it. “I decided to take a look at it; fell in love with it,” said Warrenburg. “It was run down and needed some TLC. I purchased it from him. It was a Thursday, and he said, ‘Here’s the keys; here’s how you turn on the power.’ I opened it up and people were coming and tickets were selling. Friends and family were helping me work the rides. I put some TLC into it, and it grew and grew.” It was a pattern that would repeat several more times for Warrenburg, who moved to Antioch around the time he bought Pixieland. In 2004 he was on an outing with his two sons at GolfNGames at 501 Auto Center Drive in Antioch, saw that it also needed some TLC, tracked down the owner in Kansas City, bought the place and fixed it up. “It had a phenomenal year in 2005,” he said. “It was off the charts; it was great. 2006 was good. But with the economy, things slowed down a little bit.” Warrenburg’s next entertainment excursion was the Paintball Park, which he opened on the site of the old rodeo arena at the county fairgrounds on 10th Street

in Antioch. “It’s been going great ever since,” he said. His latest acquisition, in January 2008, was the 40-year-old Roller Haven skating rink on the edge of the fairgrounds property at the O Street entrance off of 10th Street. In addition to the name change to Paradise Skate, he put the low wall back up surrounding the rink, put in a new snack bar, new carpet, painted new murals and brought in some arcade and vending machines. “I remodeled the whole place,” said Warrenburg. “It’s about 95 percent done. Usually summers are very slow for a skating rink, but it’s been doing great. Families have been coming back every week to skate.” Paradise Skate will be having a belated grand opening celebration on Nov. 7 with festivities including a barbecue and nationally known jam skaters, who will be conducting jam camps and putting on a show.

Now that he’s putting the finishing touches on the skating rink, the natural question for Mr. Fun was what family entertainment venue/activity does he have his eye on next. He greeted the question with a laugh, then became serious. “To be honest with you, with the economy the way it is, it’s been rough,” he said. “I’ve taken a hit in the last couple of years because of the economy. I’m still trying to bring new things to the businesses even with the economy the way it is. My hard core customers do support me as much as they can. I’m trying to ride the economy out and get through these tough times. Right now I don’t have anything else other than concentrating on keeping these entertainment centers going strong and providing that for the families in the area.” Despite the tough times, Warrenburg has been able to sponsor Little League teams, host fundraisers and serve as presi-

dent of the Rotary Club of the Delta and the Antioch Chamber of Commerce. “I believe in giving back,” he said. “I have been really lucky in what I’ve built here. I think if I give back to the community it will come back tenfold.” GolfNGames has two 18-hole miniature golf courses, go-karts, batting cages, a giant arcade, a rock wall and a snack bar. It’s open every day except Christmas. A round of golf costs $7.50 for adults and $6.50 for kids. The Paintball Park is open on weekends and by reservation. For $49 you get all of the equipment and three hours to run around and shoot paintballs. Roller skating costs $8 for 2½ hours ($5 Wednesday and Thursday afternoon), which includes skate rental.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

The Ripple Effect At one time or another all of us have either given, or been given, an explanation of “stuff rolls down hill”. Unfortunately, our current real estate market is not immune to this age old adage. To showcase what I mean let us first define the top of our hill as September to December of 2008 - when the federal government spent over 1 trillion (that’s $1,000,000,000,000) to keep Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac afloat. Although this helped to create the lowest 30-yr mortgage rates the country had seen since 1945, it also indirectly affected mortgage lending guidelines for the worse. With conventional financing becoming more difficult than ever to obtain, and private mortgage insurance (PMI) companies no longer willing to insure loans at the rate they once were, many wouldbe buyers flocked to a Federal Housing Administration (FHA) insured loan. Potential homeowners came to peace with the federally backed mortgage insurance as it allowed them to only have to shell out 3.5% of their own money for a down payment. This once dormant financing option has become so popular in fact that the government program – based on figures presented via an outside audit firm – has insured nearly a quarter of all new loans made this year. However, because of the continuing downward trend in home prices and the national unemployment figure still on the rise (last Friday the Labor Department re-

leased its findings that 27 states saw unemployment rise last month), FHA finds itself short of its mandated reserve funds for the first time in the program’s 75 year history. According the Mortgage Bankers Association, as of this summer, about 17 percent of FHA borrowers were at least one payment behind or in foreclosure, compared with 13 percent for all loans. “While FHA didn’t take part in the housing boom, it’s not immune from the ripple effect of declining house prices,” said Brian Montgomery, the agency’s former commissioner. “That’s quite frankly what this is about.” What it’s all about to any would-be buyers is the bottom of our hill. If home prices continue to fall through next spring, FHA will continue to slowly lose more of its mandated reserve funds. Lower prices mean bigger losses if the Federal Housing Administration has to foreclose and re-sell a property. To help offset/prevent this, FHA might simply tighten up their lending guidelines. In other words, the tax payer will once again be holding the bag – potentially having to jump through extra hoops to secure their home loan. All the while, at the top of the hill, large financial companies were cut check after bail-out check no more than a year ago.

West Nile risk level raised in Brentwood The Contra Costa Mosquito and Vector Control District announced this week that Brentwood is at an elevated risk for West Nile virus. The determination stems from a report from the West Nile virus state hotline program that processes, analyzes, and reports risk data based on dead bird reports from the public. The risk is based on dead birds that died in Contra Costa County, not necessarily dead birds that confirmed positive for West Nile Virus. CCMVCD also announced that four more dead birds have tested positive for West Nile virus. One dead bird was found in Byron at Camino Diablo Road and Byron Highway. Three dead birds were found in Brentwood: one at Breakwater Way and Minnesota Av-

Park pruning party Editor: A great big thank you to the residents, businesses, and property owners in the Bethel Island area who have again financially supported the ongoing maintenance of the Bethel Island Park. After Top Grade Construction donated the landscaping, the yearly maintenance of the newly developed park became the responsibility of the Bethel Island Municipal Improvement District. In 2008, because the park generates little income, we asked the citizens to make donations to maintain the park and we received over $7,000. This year we asked again and set a goal of $8,000. With the current donations

Due to the large volume of calls, reports back to the callers are not possible, but rest assured, each and every report is valuable in determining where human cases may occur and where to concentrate our mosquito control efforts.” The public is urged to continue to call in dead birds they find to the state hotline: 877WNV-BIRD (877-968-2473).

and promises we have, we are going to reach that goal. This is particularly gratifying since the economy is so much worse this year than last. This year we have also planned a Park Beautification Day for Saturday, Oct.17 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. We will be picking up trash, trimming bushes and trees, replacing light bulbs, pressure washing the building, the tables and benches and spreading new mulch among the plantings. We are asking for resident participation. Please bring a shovel and a wheelbarrow if you have them. The Lion’s Club will be serving hot dogs, chips and soft drinks to the participants. Please set aside that morning to help spruce up the park. We know the residents of Bethel Island appreciate their park, and we thank you for your continued support.

Lions feed on Cardinals at homecoming by Michael Dixon Correspondent Liberty fans left Ohmstede Field happy as Liberty won their homecoming game 24-14 against the visiting Lowell Cardinals from San Francisco last Friday. Despite being in control for much of the game, Liberty was not able to put the game out of reach until just over four minutes remained when running back Antonio Johnson scored on a 21-yard touchdown run. Hector Torres added the extra-point to close the scoring at 24-14. According to Liberty coach Nate Smith, the key moment of the game came with time expiring in the first half, ironically enough, on a blown coverage by the Liberty secondary. With Liberty up 10-6, Lowell quarterback Ryan Louie fired a pass over all of his receivers to Liberty defensive back Garrett Slocum, who returned it inside of the Lowell 10 yard line. Then Liberty quarterback Devyn Parsons connected with Shawn Vasquez for a 9-yard touchdown pass to make the score 17-6 at halftime. On all of their scoring drives, excluding the final one, Liberty did not have to

drive very far. Liberty’s first scoring drive started from the Lowell 45 and concluded with a 24-yard touchdown run by Caleb Moravec. This was significant, as neither team had much of a passing attack. Lowell responded with a 12-play touchdown drive, all on runs. Nine of those runs, including the two-yard touchdown run, came from running back Justin Tsai. After unsuccessfully attempting a sneak onside kick, Lowell gave Liberty field position just on the Liberty side of midfield. From there, Liberty was able to take advantage of a Lowell pass interference penalty on a fourth down when Torres kicked a 27-yard field goal to give Liberty a 10-6 lead. In addition to notching six points on that field goal and extra points, Torres’ kickoffs constantly forced Lowell to start with poor field position. The scare for Liberty came early in the fourth quarter when Lowell defensive end Noah Shaw recovered a Liberty fumble and ran into the end zone untouched. The successful two-point conversion closed the Liberty lead to 17-14 with just under 10 minutes remaining. However,

Freedom girls tennis heating up on the court by Dave Roberts Staff Writer The hottest high school sport in terms of popularity is, obviously, football. But the hottest sport in terms of heat is tennis. It certainly seemed that way last week as the sun baked down on the hard courts at Freedom, putting the surface temperature well over 100 degrees, as the Falcon girls faced off against Liberty in the first of three Bell Game confrontations this season. Despite the scorcher, Freedom’s players barely broke a sweat as they won every match for a 9-0 victory over the Lions. Leading the way was Sarah Osborn, last year’s BVAL singles champion, who made short work of Mariah Paz, 6-1, 6-1, while periodically shouting encouragement to the Falcons doubles team in the next court. Osborn was coming off of her first loss of the season two days prior to Antioch’s Kaitlin Simarro. “I know she was disappointed” about the upset by Simarro, said Freedom Coach Steve Amaro. “We talked before the match about how it is time not to worry about what other people

think, but (focus on) playing to the best of your ability – to worry about really playing the ball and not what the other opponent does. She went out there and played a very solid game of tennis. “The league’s number ones have gotten better. But she’s worked tremendously hard. She’s on leadership, the varsity softball team and balancing a full load of classes. To do all of those things, it’s demanding a lot of time from

her. She’s done a great job of trying to balance out the expectations everybody has on her. But it’s not easy. I told her that regardless of what other people’s expectations are of her, she has to be herself; she has to look at herself and be satisfied with what she does. I think that was the breakthrough (against Liberty): can she play a game she will be proud of in which she will do her best. She was able to do that.”

In fact the entire team was able to be proud of the Liberty blowout on Thursday after having narrowly lost 5-4 to Antioch on Tuesday. That loss proved to be a wakeup call, especially after a victory over Deer Valley in which, Amaro said, “I don’t think we played very well. I said, ‘We have to increase the intensity level.’ We played very, very hard against Antioch. The focus we had, I think, will carry us through the season. We took a tremendous intensity and focus into the Liberty match. Liberty played very hard, but I think our girls went out there to make a statement, and I think they did.” Amaro discussed some of the standouts on this year’s squad, starting with Emma Fister, who, he said, “is playing the best tennis she’s played in her entire career. Fister beat Liberty’s Alex Regalado 6-0, 6-3 – “that’s the first time she put up a 6-0 score in quite some time,” said Amaro. Also doing well are Nicole Zanarini, who is undefeated in the No. 5 spot, and Amber Connor, similarly undefeated in the No. 6 slot. “It may be time for see Freedom page 18A

Falcons swamp Wolverines in water polo by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

Sept. 16 started out crazy with the shooting of a Deer Valley High student near the campus, the lockdown of the school for a couple of hours, parents showing up to take their kids home, followed by resumption of classes. But by the afternoon the only sign that anything unusual had taken place was the presence of a news van in the parking lot. The water polo games against Freedom went on as scheduled in Deer Valley’s pool. In the varsity boys game, the Falcons dominated the first half and were cruising to victory, up 11-1 with 4 minutes to go in the third period. The Wolverines fought back, outscoring Freedom 7-4 from there on out, but weren’t able to close the gap, losing 15-8. “We got in a little foul trouble and kind of slowed it down and got a little sloppy,” said Freedom Coach Steve Lynn. “I did some subbing and took some of my strong players out of the game. So we slowed it down and kept it under control, but I think we got a little lazy.” Perhaps a bit of coasting can be forgiven with the win pretty much in the bag, given the limited resources on Freedom’s squad this season. They only have nine players, two of whom are brand new to the sport and are used as subs, with which to field a seven-man squad in the pool. “We have a very small team, but are fortunate to have the best player in the league: Keaton Lynn,” said Lynn. The senior was ranked second in the league last year, is the team MVP, a good scorer and a great all-around player, according to the coach. Also able to put the ball in the net with regularity is Justin Stafford – “he’s got a big cannon, a big arm, a real strong

Freedom’s Justin Stafford scores a goal in the Falcons’ win over Deer Valley last week. player,” said Lynn. “They are my strongest players.” The Deer Valley win put Freedom’s record at 6-3 overall and 2-1 in league play. The one league loss was a tough one, by three points, to Heritage, in a game Freedom should have won, according to Lynn. Freedom finished second last year to league champion Deer Valley and lost four starting seniors to graduation in the off season. Although they are small in numbers this year, they compensate with their physical size – “we are pretty big; some of my players are quite large, actually,” said Lynn. “My top seven guys are all real strong, consistent players.” They include Donovan Otto-Bales – “a real strong hole-defender;” in goal is

Dalton Weger –“he’s real strong, a big kid doing a good job for us;”seniors Trevor Pels and Drew Rosner; and sophomore Zach Irwin. Freedom played Ygnacio Valley Tuesday and was back in league action against Antioch on Wednesday, the results of which were not available at press time. Their next game is Wednesday Sept. 30 at Liberty, which they beat 16-7 in the league opener on Aug. 26. Then they’ll try for revenge against Heritage on Oct. 7. “Playing Heritage early in the season was rough,” said Lynn. “So we are going to have to come back strong and beat them in the game to make the championship. That was our goal this year. I am sure they will be ready.”

Although water polo looks like a romp in the pool to the casual viewer, Lynn agrees with other water polo coaches that it’s the toughest sport to play. “It’s the most physically demanding sport there is, bar none,” he said. “Conditioning-wise, it’s not even close. The only sport that comes close is wrestling. We train 3½ hours a day. All you have to do is look at my boys out of the pool and you will see. “So far the team is coming together strong. We are small (in numbers), but they are training really hard. We have a long ways to go. We would like to have a chance to play for the championship and, hopefully, get to the post-season. We have done well with what we have – we have had winning seasons six years in a row.”

Weber commissioned by Cornish Art Gallery Brentwood artist Bill Weber was recently commissioned by the Cornish Colony Art Museum in Windsor, Vt. to produce two 8x8 murals in the manner of American painter and illustrator Maxfield Parrish depicting turn-of-the-century firefighters responding to an emergency with early firefighting equipment. The murals hang in the entrance hall of the Cornish Colony museum dedicated to Parrish. “This was a very important commission, and an extreme honor, to have my work selected to be shown in such a prestigious gallery,” said Weber. The Cornish Colony Art group comprised a group of turn-of-the-century artists such as Parish, Thomas Dewing and Lucia Fuller, sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, novelist Winston Churchill and dramatist Percy MacKaye.

Delta from page 1A calling them “another exercise in futility” because the steering committee and particularly “the water export agencies have final say on the BDCP’s outcome.” That skeptical attitude was on display inside the center’s large meeting room as one person after another questioned workshop coordinator Karla Nemeth. “How do we get the experts we have that live on the Delta into the front end part (of the planning)?” asked one man. “Because the things we see coming out are not logical.” Several people asked about the status of the 2-Gate Fish Protection Demonstration Project, which is planned north of Discovery Bay, raising concerns from boaters that their Delta access will be blocked for part of the year. A representative of the Bureau of Reclamation said that that project is currently on hold. A woman complained that she’s been trying to get the answer to a question for two years concerning the amount of water that can be conveyed out of the Delta while maintaining the health of the Delta. One man said that the plan’s discussion of “conservation is a misnomer. Pumping half the water out of the Delta and putting a fishery (label) on it is a misnomer. It’s an absolute farce.” Another man said he’s been frustrated

Woes from page 1A can to assist this family,” said Schlendorf. “It’s a tragic situation and we are doing our best to help them.” On Wednesday, Heather Schiffman of DeSaulnier’s office said they had been in touch with the bank, and are hopeful accommodations can be made. “We were assured that they were going to revisit the Tanner situation to see if they qualified for a loan re-qualification, and if not, they are still willing to work with them,” said Schiffman. “We’re happy to be able to help. The whole story gives me goose bumps every time I talk about it.” For now, Tanner continues to make the monthly mortgage payment and hope for a positive outcome.

to read in the newspapers that there’s no opposition to the BDCP. Nemeth responded, “I sense quite a lot of opposition to the plan. Today is the opportunity to start to provide public input. It’s very much in process.” The first draft of the BDCP has yet to be written, but the preliminary section of a chapter on conservation measures was distributed, providing details on the canal plan. It’s envisioned to stretch for 49 miles on the eastern side of the Delta, taking water from five new water diversion facilities with state-of-the-art fish screens. Those facilities will be along the Sacramento River from an

area north of Freeport to south of Hood. The canal would convey the water down to a new 730-acre forebay near Clifton Court Forebay south of Byron. The canal would be able to convey as much as 15,000 cubic-feet of water per second (equivalent to 9.7 billion gallons per day). The existing pumps in the south Delta would remain in operation, but their use would be more limited, in an effort to reduce the amount of fish sucked into the pumps and to maintain water quality, according to the draft plan. While the peripheral canal gets most

According to Museum curator Alma Gilbert, who has known Weber since she operated an art gallery in San Mateo, “Bill’s work has a charm and enchantment about it, much like Mr. Parrish’s. It breaks through reality and soothes the soul; it is uniquely and harmonically complete. I have known Bill’s work for years, have watched it progress, and as an art dealer I predict someday he will be widely recognized.” Weber, a former Brentwood Arts Commissioner and current Art Society member, has recently opened the Weber Arts Center in Brentwood, which features an art gallery and framing, and offers lessons in pencil drawing, painting, sculpting, pottery and guitar. He was named the Society’s Artist of the Year at the recent Art, Wine and Jazz Festival. –Contributed by Ron Beatty

of the attention, it’s just one of many components in the BDCP that are designed to help restore the Delta’s fragile ecosystem. Other components include improving water operations to mimic seasonal flow patterns and protect fish, restoring up to 80,000 acres of habitat and reducing contamination and predators. Not everyone at the workshop was skeptical about the BDCP. Dale Myers, a retired general manager for a water agency in the Livermore area, said, “I understand the concerns (about the peripheral canal) – it’s like building another freeway through the Delta. But I see so many people against doing anything rather than finding a solution that can work as best it can. “At some point, based on the science, there is a high likelihood that the Delta will fail, period. Not doing anything is not an option; status quo does not work. It’s in our best interest to try to work together. If the system breaks, we are talking about 25 million people dependent on the water system. I think it’s a train wreck coming if we don’t do something.” The draft BDCP is scheduled to be released for public review and comments next spring, followed by a final version next summer and a signed agreement by the end of next year.

Holiday dietary caution Happy Autumn Brentwood! With the change in weather comes the holiday season and plenty of baked goods and treats to enjoy. Our pets however can not always handle food and candy safely. Here are some common foods we come across during the holiday season and signs to watch for in case your pet has eaten them. Chocolate – many people know this is dangerous for dogs, however come Halloween it is difficult to avoid an accidental ingestion. The most dangerous are the baking and semi-sweet varieties. Chocolate has 2 chemicals that are toxic to dogs. Caffeine and Theobromine. These cause an increased heart rate, shaking or tremors and in severe cases seizures. Sugar-Free Gum/Candy – This treat has a chemical known as Xylitol. When dogs ingest this, even at relatively low doses it can cause a dramatic drop in blood sugar. Lethargy, difficulty walking, decreased coordination and seizures can be seen with ingestion. Other common foods that are toxic to dogs and cats include: Onions (and members of onion family including garlic, leek etc) – these contain compounds that can destroy red blood cells and cause the patient to become anemic. Macadamia Nuts – even at low doses can cause weakness, depression, vomiting, etc. typically within

SPORTS

the first 12 hours of ingestion. Grapes and Raisins – these foods contain compounds known to be toxic to kidneys and can result in kidney failure in our pets. Rising Bread Dough – this has the potential to be dangerous in two different ways. First, as yeast consumes sugar it produces ethanol which builds up in the dogs system and can result in toxicity showing symptoms of vomiting, incoordination, bloating, pain etc. Secondly, as the bread dough expands in the stomach it can actually become an obstruction and in severe cases needs surgical removal. If your pet has been known to eat these foods please contact us immediately. The best first step (and mind you this should be done within the first 45 minutes of ingestion) is to induce vomiting in dogs that are asymptomatic. This can be attempted at home with Hydrogen Peroxide or by a simple injection administered by your veterinarian. If however, your pet is already displaying symptoms of intoxication they should be seen by a veterinarian right away. If you have questions about specific foods please feel free to contact us. In addition, you can always speak with APSCA Animal Poison Control.

The owner of Ordaz Cultured Marble & Onyx, Inc. knows how a resurfaced counter top or new shower walls can transform a room and help a house become a home. “The houses have become cheaper, but a lot of the houses need some remodeling,” Ordaz explained. “There may be cracks in the shower or in the bathroom counters, and those surfaces need to be repaired to prevent further water damage. “Remodeling is also worthwhile because it allows the customer to make the house the way they want it. You can choose the style and the color. We help make the room the way they envision it.” Ordaz and his team of 20 employees make the cultured marble on site at their 33,000 square-foot Antioch factory, so customers can customize the marble based on color and design.

he calendar may say September, but for Rick Varin it’s swimming pool season all year round.

Varin is the owner and operator of The Pool Guy pool cleaning service in Brentwood, and for this chlorine craftsman the changing of the seasons doesn’t change his schedule; pools in California need to be cared for 12 months out

of the year. “Out here (California) pools are open all year, unlike in the East, where you open a pool in the summer and close it up in the winter,” said Varin. “Here, pools need to be taken care of year round.” In fact, said Varin, autumn is one of the busiest seasons, as leaves and other foliage fall into pools. Left unattended, they can clog see Pool page 4B

Pool from page 3B drains and filters, which can lead to an array of poolside problems. In winter, the potential for problems continues, including the occasional overflow when storms hit and excess water facilitates the need to drain a pool a few inches. Some newer pools have an automatic system that takes care of excess water when it hits a certain level, but for the older models, a good old-fashioned pumping usually does the trick. As the weather warms up and spring and summer arrive, that means more swimming, more bodies in the pool, and the need for more chemicals. “The more that people are in the pool, the more the chemicals have to be adjusted,” said Varin. “Too much chlorine burns the eyes, but not enough can cause problems too. Calcium build-up is a problem out here because the water is so hard, so that’s something that needs to watched. To keep a pool in good shape, they really should be serviced about once a week.” The amount of service depends upon the size of the pool – or spa – but all need a steady schedule of filter cleaning, vacuuming, skimming and chemical cleaners. And between pool services, said Varin, owners can keep their pools sparkling with a regular regime of brushing. “Pools love to be brushed,” he said. “The steps, sides and bottom. It all needs to be done.” Varin, who services residential pools, began his personalized business five years ago and has enjoyed a steady flow of clients ever since. “It (pool service) is a luxury, absolutely, but we’re holding our own,” said Varin, who estimates

SEPTEMBER 25, 2009 he has between 75 and 80 current clients. “The work has been steady.” So what should a potential customer look for in a pool service company? “Number one should be reliability,” said Varin. “You need to know that they are going to show up when they say they will. There are a lot of pool companies out there, so customer service is very important.” Clients should also understand the terms of the contract; meaning what the services will entail, whether it’s a weekly vacuuming and chemical changing, or just a quick skim over the top of the pool to pick out dead leaves. Or other dead items. Some of the less pleasant aspects of Varin’s job include removing dead animals that have somehow fallen into a pool and drowned. “Oh yeah, I’ve scooped out birds, frogs, rats, gophers and snakes,” said Varin. “People definitely don’t wait for your regular day to take care of it, and I get a lot of calls like that. I’ve also been bitten by customers’ dogs, been used as a fire hydrant, and had people call and tell me that their dog pooped in the pool. Those are the less glamorous parts of the job for sure.” Still, Varin says he can’t beat the flexibility of the job, the opportunity to meet interesting people and the chance to work outside, instead of behind a desk. “It’s good, I like what I do, I like being close to home and I enjoy working with people,” said Varin. “If someone calls and says they need a pool guy, I say “Great; let’s set a date and I’ll come out and meet your dog.” For more information on The Pool Guy, call 925-321-0866, or e-mail the.pool.guy@hotmail. com.

Houseplants come in dozens of colors and many patterns, so they can be chosen to harmonize with fabrics, furnishings and artwork. Select houseplants with complementary colors to match walls and draperies. For example, the soft orange of a Phalaenopsis Orchid ‘Peachy’ and a few other matching apricot accessories would be a perfect pairing in a room with warm earth tones. Placing pink orchids like Phalaenopsis ‘Showpiece’ in a little girl’s room will give the space a sense of color arrangement.

“Houseplants are eclectic. They can finish the look of a country style setting or soften the stiff lines of a formal room,” says Ilma Bartha, co-owner of Silver Vase, Inc., a national grower of high-quality orchids and bromeliads. “For example, adding delicate, creamy white orchids to a room can create an instant classic look. Or, homeowners can add bold, tropical bromeliads for a spicy, colorful addition when entertaining friends.” Just as paint color can affect the overall mood and ambiance of a room, so can colorful accessories such as houseplants. Plants can help overhaul a space quickly with bright splashes of color, or simply add continuity by complementing a well-laid foundational design. “Buying orchids and bromeliads in superior condition, without diseases or chemical reliance, will boost the homeowner’s success when using them for decor,” says Bartha. Select orchids are bred with superior standards such as those introduced by the European breeder Floricultura, and offer disease-free and low-maintenance beautification options. These plants with robust root systems provide a decor

Francisco Ordaz and his son Xavier custom design cultured marble, which can be used for showers and countertops as well as bathtubs and sinks.

Marble from page 2B dense material so that it is heat- and chip-resistant as well, making it a worthy investment. “We offer marble, onyx, granite and quartz, and while it can get expensive depending on what you want, the end result is a quality, low-maintenance product. This is an especially nice feature to have in kitchens and in bathrooms where spills are common.” Ordaz said marble, onyx, granite and quartz are also popular now because most of the surfaces have natural earth tones, and the natural textures of the rock provide a stimulating design that adds character to any room. While the natural stone colors are popular, Ordaz can customize any color. After being in the business for more than 25 years, he’s created more than 100 custom colors. Ordaz designs marble for homes and businesses. Some of his more recent work can be found at Steeltown Coffee & Tea in Pittsburg. His product is so valued that he’s shipped his marble across the world to Korea and Peru as well as Mexico and Canada. Ordaz first opened his business in Concord in 1991, but the neighbors didn’t like the noise and smells that go along

with creating cultured marble. So when he found the large Antioch location, he moved the production operation while keeping a showroom in Concord. The Antioch location has a modest display of showers, baths, sinks and bathroom countertops. But Ordaz likes to have customers go to the Concord location, which has more samples and a less industrial atmosphere. For those willing to brave the fumes, Ordaz has dozens of color and style samples at the Antioch location to help potential customers figure out what they want. He doesn’t employ any salespeople and prefers to help customers one on one. “Some people come in and only want to look around to get ideas, and that’s fine,” Ordaz said. “Some people want to take pictures to take home to figure out what they want, and that’s fine too. But if they need me, I’m here. I also like to go to the locations during installation to make sure that everything is done right. I want customers to have the best service.

Where the rubber meets the parking lot by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer For a while I disliked the 12-pound basketball more than anything else I’ve run across. It’s a piece of training gear, one of several I’ve started to get acquainted with in the last few weeks. You’re supposed to use a two-handed pushing motion to throw the ball as far as you can, a technique perfected by the sport’s elite performers, very large men who toss beer kegs. (Really. For money.) Once you’ve tossed the ball, you have to run after it, and figure out how to stop and pick up what is essentially a Volkswagen whose parking brake has failed. Then – get this – you throw it back! And forth! And you keep running after it! I’m here to tell you that after the first toss, it’s a real struggle to scrounge up much enthusiasm about throwing the stupid ball very far in the first place. But my trainer, Christian Aguirrer at Aloha Fitness, has found something for me to dislike more than running around in his parking lot acting like Sisyphus with a rubber boulder. The new thing starts with you dangling from a rubber band on ste-

roids slung over a steel bar, and you do pull-ups. I’m not saying it isn’t a great exercise. I’m saying that, as an editor, I’m more comfortable with dangling that involves participles, not industrial-strength office supplies. I’m willing to bet that I’ll have a new least-favorite activity soon, though. I’ve been working with Christian for about three weeks, and the only exercise that’s been repeated is crunches, which I’ve repeated a lot. The variety in the workouts is a good thing, as it helps keep my interest up. It also helps sharpen my dexterity, more so than going through the same motions all the time. What I haven’t done a lot is put my food record in the computer like I should. I’ve also not been putting as much food in my mouth, though. I’ve lost 11 pounds since starting on this program, and a lot of that is due to what and when I’m eating. The rest is due, in part, to office supplies and playground equipment from hell.
