DBPOA recall up in the air by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

The president of the Discovery Bay Property Owners Association (DBPOA) has said the board would formally address a petition to recall six of the board’s seven directors, but so far the only response has been silence. “My understanding is that we are supposed to get a written response from our attorney acknowledging the recall, but as far as I know that has not been done,” said DBPOA Secretary Bobbi Nugent, the only member of the board not named in the recall. DBPOA President Dominic Carano said he and the board would address the recall effort at a meeting on March 3. “We have a letter going out (to the petitioners) acknowledging the recall,” Carano told the Press on March 2, but to date no letter has been forthcom-

ing. Repeated calls this week to Carano were not returned. Sandee Visitin, one of the signers of the recall petition, is frustrated by the board’s lack of response. “Since they said they were advised to do this (respond) by their attorney, we asked for written confirmation of this,” said Visitin, who added that the group has not received any correspondence from the board or its attorney. A coalition of property owners filed a petition with the board on Feb. 3, asking for the recall of six of its members, for among other things, mandating membership in what some believe is an illegal association. Those mentioned in the recall are Carano, Jack Parker, Dave Ciruli, Omar Hindiyeh, Peter Barlacq and Shirley Tilton. Since the Feb. 3 petition, Barlacq has resigned, leaving a vacancy on the

2010 Census more than a head count Staff Writer

The 2010 Census should have arrived in your mailbox this week. Filling out the 10-question form will help bring millions of dollars to East County to help fund public works projects and education programs for public schools.

Online Now!

Have you sent in your 2010 Census questionnaire yet? More than 120 million households received Census forms this week, and the U.S. Census Bureau is encouraging everyone to respond as soon as possible. The Census takes place every 10 years, as it has since 1790, to get a head count of the nation’s population, but since the number of a state’s representatives in Congress is determined by its population, Census data is also used to determine that crucial figure. The other function of the Census is to guide government agencies in the allocation of more than $400 billion in federal funds to state and local governments.

Using Census data, money is distributed to communities across the country to fund public works projects, enhance education, provide additional emergency services and retrofit hospitals. Money is also given to state and local governments to build and fix roadways. On a broader scale, the Census serves as a snapshot of America, spotting economic and social trends. Brentwood resident Roland Fernandez, a Census partnership assistant based out of the Contra Costa County Census headquarters in Concord, said the motto of this year’s Census is “it’s easy, it’s safe and it’s important.” According to Fernandez, each person in Contra Costa County who participates in the Census will bring $11,450 in funding for local pro-

grams. “If 100 people return the form, that’s more than a million dollars in funding to be used in the county. So the more people who participate, the more money we’ll get to support our local programs.” Fernandez added that filling out the Census form is required by the Constitution. Thursday, April 1, is Census Day. In a perfect world, the Census Bureau will have received all of the Census forms by then, but chances are, as with the last Census in 2000, more than 40 million households will fail to respond. In 2000, Contra Costa County recorded a participant rate of 75 percent, while California’s was see Census page 8A

The call of the wild – turkey by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Turkeys in Brentwood? That was the question enquiring minds wanted to answer last week following reports of wild turkeys strolling through neighborhood yards and parks. “I came out of my house the other day and there they were about 17 of them, just walking down the street like they were out for a stroll,” said Marlene Ewell. “I have lived in Brentwood for 13 years and I have never seen them before. It was so amazing; they were just gorgeous.” Don Graves and his daughter Amanda also spied a gaggle of the feathered friends taking what appeared to be their morning constitutional. “There were seven of them just walking

down our street,” said Graves, who lives in Garin Ranch. “My daughter and I were heading to Starbucks and she pointed down the street and said there were some turkeys. I have lived here for 40 years and have seen pheasant and quail, but never turkeys. Or course I didn’t believe her at first, but there they were. It was very exciting.” Commonplace in central Contra Costa locations such as Danville and Diablo, wild turkey sightings are still rare in East County, but perhaps not for long. “Wild turkeys have expanded their range considerably,” said Susan Heckly, wildlife rehabilitation director with the Lindsay Wildlife Museum. “Less than 10 years ago there were virtually none in the Danville/Blackhawk area and now they are everywhere. They’ll go wherever food is available; they are quite resourceful.”

And oftentimes those food resources come from generous residents enamored by the novelty of the big birds, some weighing as much as 30 pounds. But what can happen, said Heckly, is that once the turkeys know where to find the food, they can be difficult to get rid of. “Once they’re in your yard, they can become nuisances, so people should be careful about putting food out for them,” said Heckly. “And although they are fairly harmless, they can be aggressive like chickens. The biggest danger to humans might be to their cars if they hit one. Their size makes them a little intimidating but they don’t have a lot of weapons they can use to fight with. Mostly they’re just pests. Ewell, however, is unperturbed.” “I don’t care if they come around; I think they’re wonderful,” she said. “They don’t bother me – at least not yet.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Lions Club speech winner moves ahead by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Whenever Kristina Wegryn feels those first flutters in her stomach, she knows success isn’t far behind. “I’m used to that feeling and I know what it means,” said Kristina, a senior at Heritage High School. “It’s when I don’t get them that I know I’m in trouble.” Luckily for Kristina, the butterflies were in abundance on March 11 as she stepped up to the podium to deliver her speech on heath care reform at the Lions Club Student Speaker competition. The 73rd annual event – held at locations throughout East County and divided into regional and district competitions – is a springboard for high school students looking to improve their public speaking skills and, in some cases, their bank accounts. Cash prizes for the multitiered program total more than $20,000. “It’s a longstanding program whose purpose is to foster independent thinking and give students an opportunity to speak on a number of topics,” said Joyce Sutay, chair of the student speaker competition. “So many doors can open for you if you can express yourself well, if you are organized and can say what you want to say with confidence. This program offers that opportunity to students.” And Kristina has taken full advantage of it. “She’s a phenomenal writer and speaker and she’s done a really great job with this (competition),” said Kathi Timmons, Kristina’s mom. “She’s very focused; she’s kind of an old soul.” This latest competition was Kristina’s third goaround at the Lions speech contest, an event she be-

came involved with as a freshman at the urging of her English teacher Roger Haley. “My interest was really sparked by Mr. Haley when he introduced me to the speech competition,” said Kristina. “He knew that I loved writing and he liked my essays. He’s really been a kind of mentor to me.” Since her first speech, Kristina has waxed poetic on a number of topics for the Lions competition, including global warming, immigration and the California water crisis. This year’s topic – health care reform – has placed Kristina in the running for the regional competition in April. If successful, she will move on to the district level – where first prize is $4,500 – and then on to the area finals, where the prize is $6,400. The final state round will garner the winner $10,000. Any winnings Kristina receives will go into the Brentwood resident’s bank account while she heads off to the Air Force Academy next winter and pursues a career in linguistics. “I just want to get high school out of the way and move on,” she said. For now, Kristina is focusing on graduation and polishing her speechcraft for the next round of competition. “What I like about the (speech) competition is that it’s something different that no one else really does,” she said. “I like to speak in public, and I like to voice my opinion, so this is good for me. It’s definitely helped me become more confident in front of people.” “I’m just so excited to hear that Kristina has won and will move on,” said Sutay. “She’s a very focused, articulate young woman. I think she’ll do very well; I think she has what it takes.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Scout honored for tribute project by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Oakley City Council meetings don’t typically feature brief intermissions for photo shoots, but last week’s meeting was different. After Mayor Pat Anderson delivered a proclamation to soon-to-be Eagle Scout Carl Smith, Councilwoman Carol Rios stepped down from the dais to play honorary photographer, snapping photos of Smith and his family posing proudly with Anderson. The City of Oakley honors Eagle Scout recipients on a regular basis, but Smith’s story, like the council photo-op, is different as well. As a Boy Scout of Troop 93, Smith earned 36 badges when only 21 are required for Eagle Scout promotion. Smith, a senior at Liberty High School, also decided to make his community service project, a requirement to achieve Eagle status, a personal mission to honor one of his best friends, Tyler Toal. “Tyler Toal was a friend of mine who had passed away in an accident, and the student body felt he needed to memorialized,” Smith said at the council meeting. “So I had the idea of making a bench for him at the center of our quad.” Smith came up with the design for the bench and had it specially ordered, using money garnered during a car wash fundraiser at Liberty last summer. The cardinal-colored bench, inscribed with

Future Eagle Scout Carl Smith of Boy Scout Troop 93 received a proclamation from the City of Oakley read by Mayor Pat Anderson at last week’s council meeting. the message “In Loving Memory of Tyler Toal,” was installed at Liberty last November. Toal died Feb. 4, 2009 in an ATV accident. He was known for passion for extreme sports including dirt biking, snowboarding, wakeboarding and wake surfing. He was only 16. Smith said that he and his friends sit at the memorial bench every day at lunch unless it’s raining.

“It’s a great part of Liberty High School and it’s always going to be there,” Smith said. Anderson applauded Smith for his tribute to his friend, saying that it was a wonderful way to honor Toal’s memory. Smith will officially achieve his Eagle Scout status during a special court of honor held on Sunday, April 11 at Brentwood’s Veterans Hall. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Museum set to open The East Contra Costa Historical Society holds its annual Opening Day Celebration on March 27 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., featuring new displays of the Byron Hot Springs and Donner Party, WPA paintings of John Marsh, and a 1920 magician’s costume from the Brentwood Theater. The Society has also recently restored a 1947 Dodge truck used by the Byron Fire Department, and welcomes visitors to get their picture taken with it. Opening Day guests are also invited to bring their “cars of interest” for all the see at the celebration’s car show. Music will be provided by popular DJ Jared and his family, hot dogs will be fired up by Ed and his Angels, and vendors will offer handmade items for sale. The event also features tours of the 1878

farmhouse, originally owned by the Byer and Nail families; plus antique farm tractors, Model T’s, a caboose, fire trucks, Homer’s Tool Shed and the museum store. The store’s collection includes books about Camp Tracy (the prisoner of war camp located at Byron Hot Springs), the original Byron Hot Springs resort and many others pertaining to East County and the Delta. Museum tours are free, but donations are appreciated. Proceeds go toward keeping the Society and its museum in operation for another year. The East Contra Costa Historical Society Museum is open every Saturday and the third Sunday of the month, April through October, from 2 to 4 p.m. For more information, call Dave or Joyce at 925-679-1024.

Relay status: Code Purple The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life is a life-changing experience that gives people in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost and fight back against the disease. Oakley’s Relay for Life will be held May 1 and 2. To raise awareness, Oakley Relay organizers and volunteers will be “painting the town purple” beginning Monday, March 29. The goal of the campaign is to place purple ribbons throughout the community in front yards and on businesses to remind residents about the upcoming Relay event.

Participants may pick up purple ribbon at Civic Center Plaza, 3231 Main St., on March 30 from 4 to 6 p.m. or decorate with their own materials. Everyone is welcome to join in this weeklong campaign. If you choose to participate, remember to get permission before putting up decorations on private property. For safety purposes and in order to adhere to Oakley’s municipal code, residents are asked to not decorate light poles, stop signs, stop lights and telephone poles.

NEW SHORT SALE PROGRAM There is a new government program that goes into effect April 5, 2010 called HAFA, which stands for Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives. This could either be sweeping change that completely revolutionizes the way that short sales are handled in a positive way, or it could be another well-intentioned government program that sounds good at first, but falls flat during implementation because of the fine print. THE GOOD NEWS: HAFA tries to force lenders to consider a short sale before they can foreclose if your loan modification doesn’t work out. Lenders will have to let you know what amount they will take on a short sale PRIOR to you putting it on the market, what’s called a “pre-approved short sale.” They also can’t pursue you after the short sale for a deficiency. They will pay up to $3,000 to satisfy any junior liens, and they’ll even give you $1,500 relocation funds to help you move. THE BAD NEWS: Not every loan qualifies for this, and not every lender is participating. The property must be your principal residence, only applies to first liens taken out on or before

1/1/09, must be delinquent or you are about to default, current balance must be equal to or less than $729,750, and your total mortgage payment must exceed 31% of your gross income. Even if your loan qualifies, it’s still up to your lender to decide if a short sale or a foreclosure is in their best interests, and what price they put on the short sale. And while you are in the HAFA program, you have to start making payments to your lender equal to 31% of your gross income. Another concern is that if the short sale isn’t successful, you may be agreeing to an automatic deed-in-lieu of foreclosure action. And lastly (and this could be the biggest glitch by far) if you have a 2nd loan on your home, and they won’t accept the $3,000 and/or they won’t agree to give up the right to pursue you after the short sale, your HAFA short sale may fall apart.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

100% Financing Still Available USDA Home Loans This previous weekend – amazing weather and all – I headed out on the infamous Delta for the fourth time in my entire life. After each adventure, after we dock the boat for the day and I’m driving home, I always think to myself, there is so much untapped land throughout this area. Certain pockets of the Delta’s canals are legally zoned as “rural areas”, and as such allow for special financing offers from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). These loans, known as USDA Home Loans, are very unique in that they are one of the only remaining ways to obtain 100% financing – that’s right, there is no down payment required. In theory, the government is allowing for the foundation in which this nation was built to stay alive. By offering low to moderate income families the ability to purchase new (constructed within the last 12 months), or existing (constructed more than 12 months ago) homes in cities that have a population of no more than 10,000, the spirit of the mid 1800’s is truly still alive. Certain areas with a population up to 25,000 can still be considered…each USDA Home Loan is run through the nationwide to system

to see ensure the property is eligible. Either way, our local areas such as Knightsen, Bethel Island, and even parts of Discovery Bay are very much able to participate in this federally insured program. For this program, you don’t need to be a “first time home buyer” – you just need to be a “low- to moderate-income” buyer. If your annual income is less than $95,000 for a family of 1-4 people, or less than $125,400 for a family of more than 4 people, you may be able to take advantage of this 100% financing program.” Mark Twain and Will Rogers alike shared a sentiment. As Twain stated, “Buy land, they’re not making it anymore.” Our current financial markets are in turmoil and constantly looking to rebound, however one thing is for sure, the value of land will rebound. With the Federal Government truly offering no money out of pocket purchasing, now could very well be the best time since Mark Twain’s death in 1910 to purchase a home!

Recall from page 1A seven-seat board. No announcement has been made regarding a replacement. A recent court ruling stated that the Davis-Stirling Act, which governs homeowners associations, applies to the DBPOA. In addition, the Davis-Stirling Act gives the association the power to increase dues without membership approval and to foreclose on members who owe more than $1,800 in outstanding dues. But because the DBPOA shares no common area – a condition under the Davis-Stirling Act – some residents believe the DBPOA is not a binding organization. Under the provisions of the Davis-Stirling Act – which Carano said the board is abiding by – a recall petition must include signatures from at least 5 percent of the membership in good standing. The DBPOA has

approximately 1,600 members, and the recall petition lists the names and addresses of 113 individual property owners, well above the required 88 signatures. The board had until Feb. 23 – 20 days from receipt of the petition – to give notice to the membership of a meeting date to determine a date for an election. Carano had said that despite missing the response-time deadline, the board would address the petition at the March 3 meeting. The response was not forthcoming and under the Davis-Stirling Act, if the board fails to give notice, the petitioners can give notice themselves and set a date for the meeting and election. Visitin said the coalition’s plans going forward are unclear: “We have not heard a word from them (the board). We are trying to get something in writing before we decide on a next step.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Census from page 1A 73. Replacement forms will be sent to households in April as a friendly reminder to encourage participation, and if the Bureau hasn’t received anything from you by May, the “Non-response Follow-up” process begins and a Census taker will visit your residence. Fernandez said the 2010 Census form is so easy to fill out (the questionnaire is only 10 questions long) that it will take no more than 10 minutes to complete – quick work compared to the 50-plus question Census forms of the 19th century. To emphasize the importance of par-

ticipating in the Census, the City of Oakley showed an informational video at last week’s council meeting and posted messages about the Census to rotate on the plasma screens located in the Council Chambers. “The Census is the way for communities like Oakley to make sure we get our fair share of federal and state distributed revenues,” said Oakley City Manager Bryan Montgomery. “We know some are hesitant to fill out the forms, but it is a civic duty, whether you are a citizen or immigrant.” For more information about the Census, visit www.2010.census.gov.

Raises disappointing Editor: Open letter to Dr. Merrill Grant – Brentwood Union School District: Dr. Grant, we received your letter on Friday regarding the budget cut at Brentwood schools. I have to say that this is the most disappointing letter that I have ever received. My husband and I are very familiar with step increases, as he has been a firefighter most of his life and is currently employed with a local fire department. My husband’s COLA increases through the union were deferred so that their budget wouldn’t take such a big hit with the struggling economy. I myself have forgone pay increases and bonus monies so that I can keep my employment. I must say that I am quite ashamed of your behavior and the behavior of the other board members who took money from a struggling school district to pay yourselves. While I understand step increases, I would think that in this economy, instead of making my children suffer and have teacher’s lose their jobs, you and the other board members should have shown more honorable behavior. Your vision of centering the academic program on the “whole child” should have included doing everything you can to keep quality teachers, art programs, music programs and smaller class sizes. Instead, you gave yourself a raise. Bravo. Jana Aubert Brentwood

is home to feathered friends of mine called burrowing owls. Burrowing owls are 9 inches tall and live in the ground. The burrowing owl is declining and is listed as a bird of special concern in the state of California. It delights me that Antioch is the first city in the East Bay to have created something this unique. It has done an outstanding job making this area attractive to the burrowing owls. While this is not the most ideal living situation for burrowing owls, it is adequate for them and they don’t seem to mind being surrounded by development. This past weekend, with a little help from friends, we installed six nesting boxes in the ground. Now the owls have choices between natural burrows and a few manmade burrows. This was a very labor-intensive job but we got the job done. So, many thanks to Lonnie Karste, the community center’s project manager, for allowing me to add these new owl homes. Many thanks to the Friends of Marsh Creek for getting so many volunteers on short notice. Many thanks to the Burrowing Owl Preservation Society, which graciously donated all the materials, and many thanks to all the volunteers who came out with such enthusiasm – and their shovels – to help with this project. We never could have done it without you! Some day I hope to add some solar cameras inside the nesting boxes so that life inside them can be viewed from inside the community center. I think this would be a great addition to the educational part of the nature area. But first I need to think about how to raise money for that project. Dee Vieira Antioch

Better fire/paramedic staffing achievable

Editor: Why is it that the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (ECCFPD) is understaffed, only provides basic life support and is among the lowest paid in the Bay Area? If you look at the numbers, we can staff all ECCFPD fire engines with the minimum standard of three people (all but two of the engines are staffed with two persons), provide advanced life support (ALS) capabilities and pay personnel a fair wage for their services. If you read newly formed fire board member Kevin Romick’s blog, dated Feb. 9 (www.romickinoakley.wordpress.com), it stated, “The new fire board outlined the district’s lack of revenue to provide staffing levels in urban areas.” He also stated, “The district currently has an operating budget of $12.3 million” and that “the district covers eight stations and one Cal-Fire station on Marsh Creek Road with a total area encompassing 250 square miles.”

EDITOR

ECCFPD is the second-largest fire district in Contra Costa County. Of the $12.3 million, $1.7 million is being pulled from the district’s reserves. The International Association of Firefighters has recommended a minimum of three-person engines as a more efficient means of providing service and increasing firefighter safety. If we were to raise the property tax just 3 cents for every dollar of assessed property value across the board for all cities covered by ECCFPD, it would generate approximately $6.14 million in additional revenue and would cost approximately an additional $90 for a $300,000 home. With the additional $6.14 million in revenue, they (ECCFPD) would be able to make all their engines ALS staffed with three persons and stop the need to dip into the reserve funds. ECCFPD would need to hire approximately 19 people – most, if not all, would need to be paramedics – to achieve adequate staffing levels for urban areas. With the addition of paramedics on the engines, there would no longer be a need for the three quick-response vehicles (QRVs), which do not transport patients to hospitals, that AMR staffs at three of the fire stations. By eliminating the QRVs, it would force AMR to put more transporting ALS ambulances on our streets, thus reducing the time it takes to get our communities’ residents to a hospital. Having been a paramedic and EMT for the last 18 years and a firefighter-paramedic for the last five, as well as a taxpayer in Brentwood for the last five years, I hope that my family and property would be covered by the same standard that everyone around us seems to have. Aren’t we worth it? Ronald Bell Brentwood

Breaking ULL not the answer Editor: Breaking Brentwood’s urban limit line will not solve the American Avenue problem. If the ULL initiative is passed, it will be at least four more years until American Avenue is completed. Why don’t we try to draw a more conservative ULL to solve the school traffic problems? Why push the ULL all the way to Deer Valley Road to fix the traffic problems at the schools? We are told Antioch will take the land if we don’t vote to break the current urban limit line. However, Antioch would have to vote to break its own urban limit line in order to try to claim the land in question. Does anyone really believe Antioch wants this land? Antioch has enough of its own development and money problems without adding more to the mix. The City of Brentwood’s fiscal analysis states the city would receive a net gain of $800,000 a year whenever the proposed development is

completed. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Now ask yourselves: how much money will be made by the landowners – including the biggest landowner, Mission Peak Development (a home builder based in the South Bay)? Please read the initiative when your ballot arrives and decide for yourself if it agrees with your vision of Brentwood. Gretchen Klaus Brentwood

Not releasing prisoners a criminally dumb idea

Editor: The federal judiciary has ordered the state of California to reduce its prison population to alleviate severe overcrowding. Because of bad management and incredibly sweet union contracts for guards, the cost of warehousing inmates in California prisons approaches the room rate of the Four Seasons hotels. Prison guards in California make almost 2½ times what a five-year veteran elementary school teacher makes. Go figure. The answer is not to build more expensive prisons staffed by overpaid guards, nor is it to farm out the prison management to a for-profit private company. The term “forprofit” should be self explanatory here. The answer is to carefully cull the prison inmate population to manageable numbers. Release the poor slob serving time for possessing a joint, release the first-time non-violent offenders who were railroaded by overzealous district attorneys and overworked, poor-performing public defenders. Release the ones who are not a threat to me or my neighbors and are costing the taxpayers a fortune to keep inside. The courts have ordered the reduction in prison population; it’s up to us, the taxpayers, to see that the reduction is handled well. At the risk of repeating myself: The answer is not building more prisons staffed with very expensive guards! And while we are talking about overpaid public employees, let’s take a hard look at the Brentwood Union School District. To give Dr. Grant and his cronies a raise in these tough economic times is almost criminal! Dr. Grant is way overpaid already while the ‘in the trenches” teachers work long hours in overcrowded classrooms with pay scales that make burger flipping look good. You should be ashamed of yourself, Merrill! Maybe it is time for the community to take a long, hard look at the school board members and their relationships with these three overpaid administrators? And finally: How about we try something really novel here in Brentwood? Let’s widen Balfour out to Deer Valley without see Letters page 11A

Letters from page 10A approving 1,300-plus new homes. And while we are at it, let’s make the Highway 4 Bypass four lanes from Lone Tree to Balfour like it should have been all along. The planning and execution of road and street building here in Brentwood has been a disaster for at least the last 10 years. Bill Sumner Brentwood

Pained at the distractions Editor: “These are the times that try men’s souls,” said Thomas Paine. While today he might have used the term “people’s” souls, I wonder what he would have to say about today’s global issues – the war in Afghanistan, the health care “debate,” the financial system crises, the economy, etc. Imagine Thomas residing in Summerset or Deer Ridge or the Rose Garden, or Eskaton, and examining our local issues – raising chickens in your undersize backyard, allowing the open carrying of weapons in our coffee shops, having to consider again changing the urban limit line. These latter issues are at least distractions that try our souls – but at least the chicken issue is resolved. Now we move on to open carry and the urban limit line (ULL). I agree with the lady who wrote to the editor expressing her disapproval of open carry; and I castigate Starbucks for allowing open carry (with ammo two seconds away). I’m simply not comfortable taking my family into a restau-

rant that allows guns other than law enforcement (unless they have a “Wyatt Earp” at the door to check those guns). It’s good to have a Peet’s close by … I also agree with the other lady who wrote to the editor about her disapproval of changing the ULL. Why in the world would we want to annex property and develop up to 1,300 more homes in the area west of Heritage High? Well, those who stand to make money one way or another on the project would want it. But we the people do not need more traffic and pollution, to the tune of thousands more cars. There are already too many homes on the development queue. The ULL initiative almost cleverly contains amenities, such as improving Balfour to Deer Valley and providing better access into and out of the schools in that area; but funds for such improvements would be years away when, and if, development fees roll in. How about considering a smaller area to annex so that American Avenue can be completed, and considering a bond issue to raise funds for the road improvements, or applying for stimulus money to solve the problems? The ULL initiative is shaping up to be a classic battle between developers/builders and the rest of us. Thomas, where are you when we need you? (By the way, I hope this letter isn’t considered my “Age of Reason.” That’s what ruined Thomas Paine). Kermit Sveen Brentwood

A lack of vision Editor: After reading the recent article “Balfour project heads for ballot” I couldn’t help but write another letter to the editor expressing my strong objection to this plan. Let me say it again, nothing about this project will benefit the existing residents of Brentwood. How this project is being proposed and the deceitful manner in which it’s conveyed to Brentwood residents should be an indication of why it should be soundly defeated. What was that petition you hurriedly signed for again? Expanding American Avenue? Mmmmm. It’s curious that Brian Swisher would say that opponents to this expansion “lacked vision.” It’s a lack of vision that compels anyone to suggest adding 1,300 homes and new commercial buildings to one corner of the city is a good idea. Not to mention the apartments/condos also in the plan. Widening Balfour means nothing if you don’t also widen the Highway 4 Bypass. All that extra traffic brought on by all these new homes/apartments/condos/businesses is going to funnel into an already congested single lane heading north and south. It’s bad now; what will it be like when this project is complete? Talk about a lack of vision! I challenge Mr. Swisher to share his vision of the benefits this expansion has to those of us who live in the area. Mr. Swisher should rely on the merits of the project to see Letters page 14A

Why You Should Consider a Short Sale Versus a Foreclosure by Joan Grimes, Esq. When a person is behind on their home loan, it is easy to get discouraged and think that a foreclosure sale will be better than a short sale. It will be easier to walk away and just let the Bank take back the property. However, all too often, walking away from a property is not the best option. First, the borrower is responsible for the property until it reverts to the Bank at the trustee sale or is sold by to a third party at the trustee sale. The time between walking away and the trustee sale can be months or in some cases, years. During those months, the upkeep of the property including maintenance of the property is still the responsibility of the borrower. The borrower is also personally liable for homeowners’ dues, homeowners insurance and any charges levied by the city for failure to maintain the property. Instead of moving out, the borrower could have put the property up for short sale and continued to live in the property without paying the mortgage and saving for their next place. Second, it will take longer to qualify for a new home loan if the property is foreclosed. Fannie Mae and FHA have made it clear that both will look more favorably on a short sale versus a foreclosure. The Borrower will be eligible for credit to purchase a home in 2 years from completion date of a short sale whereas it could be 5 years from date of the foreclosure sale is completed. Third, a short sale may reduce personal liability and tax liability on the property. This may be especially true if the borrower does not qualify for bankruptcy. However, extreme caution

should be used in proceeding with a short sale on a stated income loan if the borrower gave less than honest information as part of original the loan application. On a short sale, the lender will require release of financial information including prior tax returns which may expose the borrower additional liability instead of reducing liability. Deciding to do a short sale is big decision and may have significant legal and tax consequences. Therefore, prior to starting a short sale (1) determine the affect of the short sale on your credit, (2) is there any personal liability on a lien after the short sale and (3) is there any tax liability due to the short sale. In conclusion, a short sale versus a foreclosure may be the right decision for you. However, a short sale can have serious consequences which should be analyzed by a real estate or bankruptcy attorney. This is a complicated area of the law, but a bankruptcy or real estate attorney should be able to make to an analysis of your particular situation fairly quickly. *This information is not provided as legal advice and should not be relied up in making any decision regarding a voluntary default, short sale, foreclosure or bankruptcy.

Jump from page 11A make his case rather than attack those of us who oppose it. We should also take care not to be spurred into some sort of knee-jerk reaction whenever Antioch is brought up. A buffer is not an impenetrable wall that keeps away the bad guys. In this case, a “buffer” is a sales tactic meant to draw upon the fear of what might happen. This type of sales job is coming from Mr. Tom Koch, who happens to represent the only benefactors of this project. The landowners. I won’t go much further with Mr. Koch. His intentions should be clear considering whom he represents. Think about what this level of expansion means to your quality of life. More homes/businesses equal more cars and people. That’s an undeniable fact. Can anyone really say this is good for us? If so, prove it with more than talk of buffer zones and American Avenue. If this project is truly in the best interest of Brentwood residents, then supporters should clearly explain how that area is going to support all the new cars and people that come with construction and habitation of so many new dwellings. Good luck. Please vote no on whatever this ballot is eventually named. It lacks vision. Chris Wakefield Brentwood

Dude – where’s my gym towel? Editor: California’s system to fund its schools is broken. It is not just a broken funding system; it has a governance problem as well. First, a short walk back in time: When I was in junior high and high school after P.E. class each day I got a fresh, clean

towel to use after I showered. After sports practices or games, participants dropped off the dirty jerseys only to collect a clean one the next day. The right of passage for every junior high school boy was to bring home to his father an ashtray he made in metal shop. My school always had a full-time school nurse and there were counselors for each grade level. Summer school offered a full array of courses, from band and art to core academics. For those students that wanted to graduate early, they could take extra classes during the summer. In the late 1970s, Proposition 13 was passed. In a mere three years, California went from being one of the top five states in funding its schools to the bottom 10, never to recover. The first cut? My gym towel! This cut seemed so trivial at the time. Next came the elimination of many elective classes. Summer school may be the microcosm of this systematic dismantling of public education funding; we went from a full offering of courses to, more recently, only classes for those students in jeopardy of failing. And this year there will be no summer school with the exception of special-education classes. School funding has gotten a lot of focus over the last two to three years during this “Great Recession.” But the reality is this has been in the making for 30 years. Now, do I advocate for the repeal of Proposition 13? Absolutely not! However, people need to understand the unintended consequences of Proposition 13. During pre-Proposition 13, most property taxes generated locally for schools stayed local. Local school boards also had significant say over their resources and their own policies. In Post-Proposition 13, virtually all of our

money for local schools went to Sacramento. Our local education dollars now were up for grabs with other state priorities. It is very clear that funding and governance need to get back into alignment. I offer two options: 1. Since most of the current money resides in Sacramento, we create a single State of California School District with one Board of Education. All business, payroll and personnel functions would move to Sacramento. Yes, and create a statewide system of collective bargaining. Sacramento would then have the ability to fund any salary schedule changes. Currently, local districts only really have control over their expenditures; they have virtual no control over their revenue. 2. Return local control. Keep the current local school board governance structure, but require that all local taxes collected to support local schools stay local. Provide the ability for the local community to support and fund local schools. Allow for a very minimal level of state oversight. Rick Rogers Superintendent Oakley Union School District

Falcons rebuild after grand-slam season by Dave Roberts Staff Writer It would be difficult for a baseball team to have a better season than Freedom’s 2009 campaign. The Falcons finished 23-4 overall, 14-1 in league and won the NCS championship over De La Salle – a game in which Freedom’s star pitcher Billy Wardell received a nasty gash over his eye in the second inning, convinced the manager to let him stay in the game, went on to pitch a shutout, celebrated the victory with his teammates, then went to the hospital to receive 19 stitches. “Gutsy, gutsy, gutsy,” said Freedom Manager Gary Alexander of Wardell’s heroic performance. “Most people would have been going to the hospital in the second inning. He wasn’t going anywhere. Last year was a dream season – a lot of talented seniors, and they got the most out of their potential. It was a lot of fun.” But now it’s a new season; Wardell has graduated and is starting for the University of Nevada Las Vegas. Asked how many other starters he lost to graduation, Alexander said, “It would be easier to say who we didn’t lose. (We lost) the whole starting lineup, everybody. I have three people returning this year, and they weren’t starters last year. We’re starting fresh. We’re talented, but very inexperienced and young. At this point I have three freshmen on the varsity team, a couple of seniors, a couple of juniors maybe and sophomores too.”

NOW OPEN!

One returning star is Joe Navilhon, who as a freshman threw hard and did an excellent job in relief, posting a 1.42 ERA in 24 innings. “He played a pretty important part last year, relieving-wise,” said Alexander. “He’s going to start this year.” Also returning to the mound is Ryan Petrangelo, who notched a 4.95 ERA in five innings as a junior. “He didn’t get a lot of innings last year, but did get varsity experience. Those two we hope do well.” Andrew Garner, a junior who is well known to Freedom basketball fans, is making his debut with the varsity baseball team. He’ll be pitching and has the ability to play infield or outfield. “We’ll see what best fits for him,” said Alexander. This year’s Navilhon could well be Dante Mays, a freshman who “is very talented at pitching and center field. He does both really well.” Freedom’s inexperience showed in a 1-6 season-opening loss to a tough Bishop O’Dowd team that has the potential to vie for the NCS championship this year. “We held our own,” said Alexander. “It really probably should have been a 2-1 loss. But we walked some batters in, we beaned some batters in, we had a few balks, we had a couple of errors that brought batters in. So, if we get rid of those problems we’ll be all right – that’s just young things.” You might expect Alexander to be content with a .500 year in this rebuilding season, but he’s actually looking to repeat. “I’m hoping for a league championship,” he said.

Freedom baseball Manager Gary Alexander is hoping for another NCS championship despite the rebuilding season ahead. “I don’t think anything less. I think we’ve got a group of guys that if they come together I think we can do some damage. There’s a couple of good teams in this league that can have a say in that matter. We’ll see. I think we’ll be able to compete. “The whole thing is being able to gel as a team. I don’t know the players that well; they don’t know each other that well. So far it looks like it’s going to gel pretty good. I’m

still figuring out who’s playing where, who’s going to be the starters and who’s coming off the bench. So far it’s a great bunch of guys that I think have unlimited potential. We’ll see where it goes. We’re young; we’re going to make our mistakes. But hopefully we’ll learn from them and can get better.” League action starts at home at 4 p.m. on Thursday, March 25 against Liberty. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Patriots sink Cowboys by Michael Dixon Correspondent On Friday, the Heritage swim and dive teams worked their way through the inclement weather to handily defeat the visiting Livermore Cowboys. The Lady Patriots won 123-59 and the boys won 105-78. The scoring in swimming calls for depth. A team can boast the winning swimmer in an event only to lose the race in points. The Heritage boys had no problem showing off their depth Friday, winning nine out of 11 events and tying another. Coach Craig Carson believes his teams’ greatest weakness is the boys’100yard backstroke – the only race that the boys lost (3-13). Their only other blemish came in the 50-yard freestyle, which they tied 8-8. The Patriot dive team was also outdone 3-10. Thomas Hally was the leading point-getter for the boys as he won the 50 free (24.92), 100 free (57.80), and was a part of two of the Patriots’ successful relay teams. Kurt Holzmuller showed impressive all-around skills by winning the 100 back (1:01.99) and the 500 free by nearly 30 seconds (5:21.80). The boys, despite being the defending league champs, are still relatively young, but produced the winning swimmer in six of the eight individual races. They

also won all three of the meet’s relays. Carson feels good about his team’s chances at repeating as league champions. “I think that our guys are probably the strongest in the league. We lost three of four really good varsity boys last year. But we still have a few good ones and we have a few good freshmen. We’ve got a lot of depth on the boys.” Like the boys, the girls lost the diving portion of the meet but that didn’t stop them from outscoring Livermore in all races but the butterfly and producing the winning swimmer in all events except the breaststroke. A season ago, the Lady Patriots finished second, between Deer Valley and Liberty. Carson believes his team can overtake Deer Valley this year but expects competition from the same two opponents. Maddison Applegate, who placed in two events at NCS last year, was the star of the meet for the girls. She won the 100 free (55.01), 200 free (1:56.95) and was a part of the winning team in two of the three relays, racking up 28 points for Heritage. Between boys and girls, JV and varsity, Heritage fields 107 swimmers. Despite its triple-digit roster, Carson said, “The team is a closely knit team. They do a lot of things together and they’re a really fun group to coach.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

CYO meet gives Freedom track a workout by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

Photo by Dave Roberts

This runner lost her shoe but won the race anyway in a CYO meet at Freedom High Saturday.

Normally it’s the athletes on the Freedom High track who get the workout as they run around it. But on Saturday it looked like it was the track itself getting a workout as it did its best to support the pounding of more than a thousand young feet in a five-parish CYO practice meet while hundreds of family members filled the stands to watch the kids run. “Excellent,” was the response of Darren Newell, head coach for St. Bonaventure CYO Parish, when asked how the event was going. “We have an excellent group of assistant coaches, great volunteers and just a real wonderful core group of parents as well that are very supportive. Albeit it’s competitive, everyone here is very, very cooperative and supportive of watching the kids enjoy and have a good time out here.” Between 500 and 600 kids participated in the

CYO’s first meet of the season, including some from Brentwood’s Immaculate Heart of Mary and Antioch’s Holy Rosary parishes. The events included races of 50, 100, 200, 400 and 800 meters along with the mile and various relays. “We’ve been working out for six weeks,” said Newell. “And we try to look to see just how well the kids are and how well we need to work on the fine tuning and development further on through the qualifying rounds to get them prepared for (the championship).” Three more practice meets will be held at various tracks in the diocese, which includes Concord and Walnut Creek, followed by three qualifying meets and the championship on May 8. Freedom’s track declined to comment on the pounding it took, but it appeared to have held up well and was happy with all the attention on what would normally have been a placid Saturday afternoon. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Immaculate championship he Brentwood boys fourth-grade American Division CYO Basketball Immaculate Heart of Mary team competed in the Diocese of Oakland and walked away with the A Division title. Fielding two third-graders on the roster, the team fi nished the regular season 9-1, swept through the playoffs and prevailed in the championship showdown. The players are Kalil Freeman, Neko Capsaliaris, Devin Jensen, Ryan Clark, Stefon Foster, Ryan Nabas (not pictured), Nick Legge, Maurice Wilmer II and Jonathan Ned; coached by Nick Capsalilaris and Dwayne Freeman.

DV from page 1B quite a contrast to an NCS playoff game the week before with a sparse home crowd at Deer Valley. “One of the great things tonight is we had our school out supporting us,” said Wisely. “It was a great atmosphere to play in one of the best venues in the state of California. I couldn’t be prouder of my school and my team.” The coach credited the defensive pressure for shutting down North Salinas in the third quarter. “We went to our press,” she said. “That was the really big key is we forced them into a lot turnovers, which was huge.” Also huge was Deer Valley’s ability to score from three-point land. Mia Rose-

Heritage from page 1B coach the last three years. “I had most of them as freshman,” he said. “We lost six games in three years – they are used to winning.” The team lost star pitcher Juan Padilla to graduation. But this year’s team has a strong crop of seniors, including pitcher Cole Wells, shortstop/outfielder Jordan Heald-Mullins, first baseman Kevin Harrity and third baseman/pitcher Sean Packard – the last two are familiar to Heritage basketball fans, having helped lead the team to its excellent 22-6 season. A rising star is sophomore shortstop/pitcher Paul Blackburn, who hit a two-run homer in the Las Lomas game and is already attracting attention from college scouts.

boro popped in three treys, while Cydnie Mixon knocked down two long balls and ended with 14 points. Fox scored one three-pointer and ended with eight points. Deer Valley’s playoff run continued Saturday on the road against Oak Ridge. Unfortunately, they lost a squeaker, 63-65, despite an impressive comeback after being down by 11 points at the half. Fox led Deer Valley with 22 points, nine of which came on three-point shots. The loss ended another amazing season for the Lady Wolverines, who look set to do it again next year with Fox returning, although they will lose Roseboro and Mixon to graduation. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Brannan said he would like to get Blackburn more time on the mound, but he’s already got a lot of senior arms ready to go. In addition to Wells, Packard and Harrity, he’s got seniors Kris Hagar, Hunter Jorgensen, Chris Lynch and Chad Radlich and junior Jack Jorgensen who can all take the ball. “We are pretty strong in that department,” said Brannan. “The old saying is ‘you can never have enough pitching.’ Right now I have too much. Trying to find them innings is hard right now. If somebody has a sore arm or a bump in the road, knowing I have them waiting to fill in is a luxury a lot of coaches would love to have.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Diabetes – make the diet connection by Kiki Powers Certified Nutritional Consultant March 23 is American Diabetes Alert Day, which is important because while at least 20 million Americans are diabetic, the disease remains undiagnosed in nearly 50 percent of these individuals. This is a great time to heighten your awareness about this serious but often very preventable disease. There are two types of diabetes. Although Type I diabetes is linked to genetics, Type II – often referred to as “adult onset” diabetes – develops largely from our diet and lifestyle choices. It seems as if American culture, cuisine and technology have all conspired to make our lives more sedentary, foods high in fat and sugar more abundant, and opportunities to eat more frequent. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to help prevent and treat diabetes naturally, starting with your dinner plate. Diabetes is clearly linked to high cholesterol levels and intake of saturated fat, meats and sugar. The American Diabetes Association long ago revised its dietary rec-

ommendations, advising that diabetics shift from the typical high-fat, high-protein diet that had been recommended for years to one that is high in fiber, low in fat and rich in complex carbohydrates. The American Diabetes Association recommends eating 20 to 35 grams of dietary fiber daily, though most Americans fall far short of this goal. Soluble fiber – from oatmeal, beans and fresh produce – helps to control blood sugar levels by delaying glucose (sugar) from entering the bloodstream and reducing LDL (“bad”) cholesterol. Along with boosting fiber, reducing your fat intake is key – especially the saturated fat typically found in meats, cheeses and other dairy products – and replacing it with monounsaturated fat, like that found in olive oil. Guess what? Eating less high-fat meat and dairy means you have more room for healthy complex carbs and plant-based proteins like tofu, soy milk, almond milk, beans, nuts and seeds. Why is this so valuable? Well, diets featuring these foods not only increase insulin sensitivity for more controlled blood-sugar levels, but also sig-

nificantly reduce insulin requirements for most patients. In fact, embracing a Mediterranean-type diet, in which fresh, whole foods and olive oil replace refined carbs and saturated fats, improves both insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance. And yes, that may well include a daily glass of wellnesspromoting red wine! An excellent tool to guide you to the healthiest food choices is the glycemic index, which ranks foods based on their immediate effect on blood sugar levels. Foods with a high index number (over 50) like cookies, white bread and white rice are the most likely to upset blood sugar levels and promote weight gain, whereas foods with a low ranking (under 50) – like beans, fresh produce, and whole grains – help with weight control and maintain insulin sensitivity, not to mention being more energizing and nutritious. The glycemic index is a great tool. Learn more at www.glycemicindex.com. Again, Type II diabetes is a dangerous condition, but it’s also a very preventable one. Taking action now with simple dietary changes can help ensure a long, healthy and diabetes-free life. Here’s to your wellness!

Colorectal cancer can’t hide from the screen by Dagan Henderson March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Have you been screened for colorectal cancer? If everyone followed screening recommendations, we could reduce the number of related deaths in the United States by half. “Only about half of Americans that should be screened for colorectal cancer are actually getting screened,” said Dr. Jeffrey Cronk, medical director of cancer services at Sutter Delta Medical Center.

“The most troubling thing is that if the other half were screened as recommended, we could reduce the number of colorectal cancer deaths by about 25,000 every year.” According to Cronk, most colorectal cancers start as polyps in the colon or rectum. At that stage they can be safely removed from the colon and prevented from ever developing into cancer. The American Cancer Society publishes the most widely used screening recommendation. For people at average risk, which is most of us, screenings should

begin with a colonoscopy at age 50. How screenings are spaced and what types of screenings are used after that depends on what your physician finds. “If we don’t find any polyps at all, we can wait 10 more years before another colonoscopy,” explains Cronk. “If we find polyps, we’ll schedule you for another one in three or five years.” Between colonoscopies, doctors can use less invasive screenings such as flexible sigmoidoscopy, which is similar to colonoscopy but less invasive because only part

of the colon is examined. No other screening is as reliable or complete as a colonoscopy, so anytime something suspicious is found, a colonoscopy is used to examine it further. “One in three colorectal cancer patients succumb to the disease,” adds Cronk. “I would advise anyone age 50 or older to talk with his or her doctor about screenings. It’s a largely preventable cancer.” Dagan Henderson is a medical writer affiliated with Sutter Delta Medical Center in Antioch.
