CCWD expected to Senate power plant bill drop drought program could generate money by Dave Roberts Staff Writer The rain dances and prayers to the rain gods by Californians paid off this winter, ending three years of drought, replenishing depleted reservoirs and likely ending the Contra Costa Water District’s Drought Management Program that took effect last May. The rains that began falling last fall and continued regularly through winter into spring have resulted in a Sierra snow pack at 107 percent of average levels and water storage in the Shasta Reservoir at 101 percent of average, CCWD Board Member Bette Boatmun told the Antioch City Council on March 23. The CCWD board is expected to vote Wednesday, April 7 to replace the drought program, which was designed to reduce water usage by 15 percent, with a conservation program that encourages efficient use of water while not setting a specific reduction target. The program is expected to go into effect May 1. CCWD’s 550,000 customers, including those in Antioch and Oakley, proved to be more than up to the drought program challenge. From May through February they reduced their water usage by 20 percent in comparison with 2005-07. They were perhaps motivated by the drought

program’s penalty; an excess use charge of four times the normal rate for those who used more water than in the past. That penalty will be disappearing under the conservation program for about 95 percent of customers. But those using more than 1,000 gallons per day would still pay a penalty of twice the normal rate for the amount in excess of 1,000 gallons or their historical usage. Boatmun also discussed CCWD’s Alternative Intake Project on Victoria Island near Old River, which the district’s Web site touts as “the most significant Delta drinking water quality project to complete planning studies, design and begin construction in the past decade.” The project, which began in 2004 and is scheduled for completion this year, includes a 250-cubic-foot-per-second pump station, a concrete intake structure with a fish screen similar to Old River Pump Station, a building to house electrical and control equipment, electrical substation and surge control tanks. It also includes the now-complete installation of approximately 12,000 feet of 72-inch pipe across Victoria Island with tunneling beneath Old River to the District’s Old River Pump Station, where it will be connected to existing conveyance facilities. “It will be a big improvement for us,” said Boatmun.

by Samie Hartley Staff Writer While the City of Oakley awaits news from the California Energy Commission regarding the fate of the proposed Oakley Generating Station, representatives of the city will travel to Sacramento later this month to support a bill that could bring Oakley up to $4 million annually in property taxes. Sen. Mark DeSaulnier, who represents Oakley, introduced Senate Bill 1398 in February. An amendment to existing legislation created by Sen. Tom Torlakson in 2006, the bill provides cities and counties with incentives to approve the construction of new power plants. Under this law, local jurisdictions are able to acquire additional property-tax revenues to support community programs, but the legislation fails to include redevelopment agencies. In Oakley’s case, the proposed Oakley Generating Station would be built on the former DuPont property located in Oakley’s redevelopment district. According to an SB 1398 fact sheet distributed by DeSaulnier’s office, under the current law, the tax increment allocated to the Oakley Redevelopment Agency from a new power generating facility would be “exceptionally small” – approximately .05

percent. However, SB 1398 will remedy that, adding the Oakley Redevelopment Agency to the current definition of where powergenerating facilities can be located for the purpose of directing a portion of these new property tax revenues toward the revitalization efforts of the redevelopment agency “This bill was designed specifically for Oakley,” said Eric Zell, Radback government affairs consultant. “If passed, it would be of enormous benefit to Oakley, allowing the city to gain $4 million annually.” Representatives from the City of Oakley, including Mayor Pat Anderson, plan to testify at a April 21 Senate committee hearing to support the project. If the five-member Senate Policy Committee approves the project, the bill will require approval from the Senate Finance Committee before consideration by the full Senate in June. From that point, the bill will undergo a similar process in the State Assembly. Zell said he is confident that SB 1398 will pass in the Senate and the Assembly and that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will sign it by the end of September. As the bill is not an urgent matter, since the plant has yet to be approved by the California Energy Commission, the law won’t go into effect until January of 2011 if approved.

Rhapsody Ranch offers peace and purpose by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

When Pamela Doheney and her husband Bill moved out to their 5-acre ranch in Knightsen, Pamela admits she wasn’t much of a country girl: “When I lived in town (Brentwood) I was afraid of spiders; I never wanted to get dirty; I was definitely not an outside girl.” But as she and her husband grew their ranch, including adding horses, a covered arena and a barn, Pamela came to find a peace and contentment from caring for her horses that she had never experienced before, and she began to hatch a plan. “You know, feeling that love that comes from animals, I can’t describe it. It’s just an unconditional love,” said Pamela. “I began to feel that when we got our horses and I wanted to pass it on to others, I wanted to share that. It’s been a longtime dream of mine.” In just a few weeks, the Doheneys will begin sharing that dream when they open their ranch, and their hearts, to those in need. Rhapsody Ranch is a nonprofit organization that helps disadvantaged children ages 7 to 17, as well as young women and adults, find strength, peace and comfort in the quiet friendship of the horses and the healing powers of the ranch. The program is free to all and programs are available by appointment and will be offered three days a week for 90-minute sessions. “I want people to be able to come out here to the ranch and be in a place that’s not

Visitors may ride, groom and care for the horses, but there are lots of other things to do at the ranch. “My goal is really to get them (visitors) to where they want to be near a horse. Once they get up there, they’ll enjoy it,” said

Pamela. “But I will give everyone choices and ask them what they want to do.” The ranch will also offer arts and crafts, a library, gardening and even stargazing on clear evenings. “And if they’re not ready for the larger horses, they can groom and bathe Danny (the miniature horse). He’s more their size and not so intimidating,” said Pamela. “He’ll probably be the cleanest miniature horse in the county.” But mainly, what the Doheneys hope Rhapsody Ranch will provide is a sense of peace and purpose; the same kind of

purpose that spurred them to establish their nonprofit organization. “This may sound kind of corny, but I just don’t feel right having all this and not sharing it with others,” said Pamela. “I want to leave some kind of a legacy and I’m happy to be able to have this. We’re in a good spot right now; we’re on an adventure and it’s all about the journey.” For more information on Rhapsody Ranch, visit www.rhapsodyranch.org or call 925-516-0474.

Relay illuminated with hope by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

After 12 hours of walking the track as part of Relay For Life, the mood of celebration transitions to a time of reflection as hundreds of white bags are lit around the Relay route in memory of those who have lost their battle to cancer. The Luminaria Ceremony represents the Relay theme “Remember.” At the halfway mark of the 24-hour Relay events, activities on the track cease so that participants may take a moment to remember loved ones lost, and what Relay is all about: raising money for a cure so that no more

lives are claimed by cancer. Three of the fundraisers for the American Cancer Society will be held in East County this year: in Oakley (May 1-2), Brentwood (June 12-13) and Antioch (June 26-27). The Luminaria ceremony includes testimonials from guest speakers who have gone through the process of caring for a loved one battling cancer, sharing their grief with the hundreds of Relay walkers. Following the speeches, Relay participants take a lap of silence to pay their respects and to honor the brave souls who lost their battle and those who are still fighting. As the night goes on, the names of those who have died of cancer are scrolled on a large

screen. “Everything kind of stops for the Luminaria Ceremony,” said Jeff Schults, who served as Brentwood Relay’s Luminaria chair last year. “We take an hour or so to remember the people, our loved ones, whose lives were lost to cancer. When you lose someone like that, you never really get over it completely, so the night is spent in that kind of mood as everyone grieves at their own pace. It’s a quiet time – a solemn time. Some people only have one Luminaria bag to visit. Others take longer because they have several bags to visit.” see Relay page 15A

Civilization hops onto floral fast-track The universe is large, and getting larger. In the time it takes you to finish this sentence, the universe will have expanded in volume by 100 trillion cubic light years. Period. But run the video backward 13.7 billion years and you’ll see the universe shrink to a mere mathematical point. Call it the cosmic seed, inscribed in the most infinitesimal handwriting, like DNA, with instructions for the TAKE IT universe in its totality: galaxies and gadUTSIDE flies, planets and plankton. You and me. I like to imagine God as the Great Gardener: creating a seed with the simplicity of the primal elements yet potential for the staggering complexity 13.7 billion years of expansion accrues; planting it in the coldest of soils, the nothingness before time and space; and with one searing command, one GER blast of incandescent breath, setting it ERICKSON in motion. This could be one reason why the image of wildflowers in spring strikes such a resonant chord in us. Woven into the fabric of our world is the pattern of darkness to light, cold to warmth – death to rebirth – enacted yearly in the reawakening of sterile and shriveled meadows into orgies of color and fragrance. If you’re itching for spring’s wildflower theater to fling open its doors, you’re in for a treat. East County has some of the best seats in the house. Round Valley’s Hardy Canyon Trail has thrown the switch on the violet voltage of Ithuriel’s spear and ookow. On the red side of the spectrum, Oil Canyon Trail (Upper and Lower) at Black Diamond Mines is strewn with the scarlet spikes of Indian paintbrush and the orange corolla of California poppies and scarlet pimpernel. Do you yearn for yellow? Take a stroll along Los Vaqueros’ Mariposa Canyon Trail, where buttercups swarm like stars.

O

And those with a penchant for purple should check out the suburban sprawl of Chinese houses along the Falls Trail at Mt. Diablo State Park. There’s another reason why wildflowers should fill us with awe and gratitude: without them, the human race might never have come into existence. A hundred million years ago not a single flower adorned our planet. It was a world in slow motion. The reproductive processes of plants required either direct access to water (through swamps, lakes, river systems, dew and raindrops) or wind-borne pollen-like particles. Some plants had developed primitive seeds, but the spread of plant life proceeded at a glacial pace. Dominating the landscape were creatures with slow metabolism, the cold-blooded dinosaurs. They were slaves to the mercury level, plodding through their habitat in the warmth of daylight but largely inactive at night. Warmblooded creatures existed in this Cretaceous Period but were hardly the dominant life form. They ranged from rat-like dwellers of trees and underbrush to lizard-like birds lurching through the primal skies. Then, as the Age of Reptiles was coming to an end, something miraculous happened – as miraculous as creation itself. The first simple flower opened its petals. And the world changed. Unlike a spore, the seed of a flower is a fully outfitted embryonic plant, a survivalist’s doomsday bunker stuffed with nutrients capable of sustaining the sprout. And armed with pollen, nectar, and seeds wrapped in a mantle of fruit, the ancient flower began attracting insects for pollination and exploiting birds and mammals for transportation. It developed featherdown for sailing on the wind and hooks for snagging a ride on a passerby’s hide. The angiosperms

(“encased seeds”) were off to the races. The dinosaurs disappeared with stunning abruptness. A special flowering, seed-producing plant we call grass made its debut. Grasslands swept across the continents, providing a nutritious buffet for the great herbivores, the horse and bison, and indirectly for their predators, the dire wolf and saber-toothed tiger. Peering meekly from the forest at the great game herds was another creature. Like the other mammals his metabolic rate was high, requiring an energy-rich diet to sustain body warmth and efficiency. He was small, and abandoned the trees awkwardly on his hind legs, no match for the bison. But once he learned to heave a rock, swing a flint axe and build a fire,

he, like the flower before him, hopped onto the reproductive fast track. And like the predators before which he had once cowered, he began taking ever-greater amounts of energy indirectly from the grass. Indirectly – until that moment out on the waist-high savannah when he conceptualized the grass seed, the ancestor of wheat, as a thing to grow and consume for its own sake. That moment was itself a seed. From it would sprout cities and civilizations in countless succession, to our present time and beyond, rising and falling in ten thousand springs and winters of human history. The gift of the flower.

There is a new California homebuyer tax credit that will go into effect on May 1, 2010, which is the day after the Federal tax credits expire. The credit is the lesser of 5% of the purchase price, or $10,000. This credit is redeemed in equal installments over three years. So if you qualify for a $9,000 credit, that will mean a $3,000 credit for each of the next three tax years. It applies to purchases where the contract was signed on or after May 1, 2010, and the transaction closes by December 31, 2010. The closing can stretch out as far as August 1, 2011 as long as you were in contract on or before December 31, 2010. You will have to live in the home for at least two years, or you have to repay the credit to the state. You also can’t use this credit to buy a home from a relative. The California government has set aside a maximum of $200 Million for this credit, so they will probably run out of money within a few months like what happened with the last credit. First-come, first-served, and if you are too late, no credit for you. This credit is different from the last California tax credit in that it covers both

brand-new AND resale homes. The last credit was JUST for brand-new homes only. For resale homes, the credit is for first-time buyers only, which is defined as someone who hasn’t owned a home during the last three years. For new homes, you don’t have to be a first-time buyer. You will be able to “reserve” a credit once you are in contract on a brand-new home. Once all the credits are reserved for the new homes, they will start a waiting list to reserve a credit. KEY POINT – In order to qualify for this credit, you have to send some documents to the Franchise Tax Board within two weeks after the Close of Escrow. That would include a copy of the settlement statement and either a statement from the Seller that the home has never been occupied, or a statement from the Buyer that they are a first-time home buyer.

Brentwood schools shine at Odyssey event by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Brentwood elementary students made outstanding showings at last weekend’s California Odyssey of the Mind competition, highlighted by a pair of teams that earned the right to represent Brentwood for the first time at the world finals in May. More than 100 schools participated in the competition, which was held at Heritage High School for the third straight year.

Brentwood Elementary’s two fifthgrade teams earned first-place awards and the right to head to Michigan State University for the final competition. The school’s Food Court team, coached by Bart Schneider, Jessica McCurdy and Michelle Valadez, includes students Casey Schneider, Will McCurdy, Tyler Valadez, Sam Goldman, Jack Mitchener, Emily Gonzalez and Gillian Gash. Its first-place Nature Trail team features Veronika Wallace, Allyson Russell, Hannah Eelsing, Cole Zanarini,

Cody Rohrbacker and Nathan Barsanti, and is coached by Susan Wallace and Lynelle Russell. Krey Elementary’s Nature Trail team placed third – narrowly missing the opportunity to join its cross-town counterpart on the trip to Michigan. The team was coached by Lori and Al Churby, and fielded students Angelo DeJesus, Steven Plate, Jennifer Plate, Kaila Malzahn, Ahmed Alani, Stone Churby and Giovanni Alvarez. Finishing eighth last weekend was Loma Vista’s

fourth-grade Discovered Treasures team: Emily Bernamonti, Riley Ehlen, Caitlyn Graves, Shaylee Hanson, Madeline Koontz, Jaden Rodriguez and Maya Davies. Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college.

Writers pen more than words Garin by Ruth Roberts

turns 40

Staff Writer

Robbie Pierce is working on a novel about brave new worlds, and Jordan Perkins is developing a story about teenage love. Victor Saude is penning a poem about baseball, while Aiden Tilcock is entering the realm of fantasy fiction. “My story is about living food in a refrigerator,” said Aiden. “The waffle is the main character and he helps all the other food hide whenever a human opens the door. So the human ends up wondering where the box of waffles went or what happened to the vegetables. It’s fun.” For one hour each week these budding Tolkiens, J.K. Rowlings and Stephanie Meyers converge on the computer lab at O’Hara Park Middle School and let the creative juices flow. “These kids come willingly each week to write, edit or share their works in progress with each other,” said Joni Whalin, teacher/advisor of the aptly named Writer’s Club. “I’m just so impressed by them. They are here simply because they want to be.” The purpose of the club is to allow these students to write, edit and share – if they wish – their work with others who share their passion for writing. Many of the students in Whalin’s class submit poems and short stories to the Young Writers Contest and other youthoriented writing competitions, although that’s not a requirement of the club. “Most of these kids are GATE students and they have very full schedules and workloads, so for them to commit to coming here once a week is something,” said Whalin. “There is no way they can complete their writing within the time constraints of our club meetings, so much of their work is done at home. But this gives them at least an hour a week to spend doing what they love. Their dedication is quite incredible.” As is their confidence. Nathan Reinders is

Each Monday afternoon, these students spend an hour channeling their creative energy as members of the O’Hara Park Middle School Writer’s Club. currently working on three novels, two sci-fi adventures and one “kind of mythological story.” Working on three transcripts at one time is no problem for the sixth-grader, as he already has the storylines and endings worked out. “I get bored working on just one book,” said Nathan, “so I like to have a few going at a time.” Seventh-grader Tyler Zahn is taking it one project at a time, and is currently working on a story about “a kid who has had an abusive, crappy life so he decides to go off and live in the forest,” said Tyler, who added that the weekly writing class is good for him because it forces him to be more disciplined. Lexie Delarosa agreed. “I like expressing myself, and this class is good for that,” said the seventh-grader, who recently finished a poem about a real-life argument she got into with a friend and how she felt about it. “I have a lot of other distractions at home so this gives me a quiet place to work.” And while their interests and storylines vary, the one thing these young writers share

is an appetite for reading and a love of writing. For them, the joy is all in the process. “It’s not hard for me (writing), it’s just something I like to do,” said sixth-grader Natasha Cocke. “I keep a journal at home and I read a lot, so that helps. And I kind of feel relaxed when I’m writing.” Since some of the students have considered a career in writing, one of the benefits of participating in the writing contests is learning how to submit work for publication. “I’ve thought about it (a career in writing) before,” said Tyler. “I’m going to see if I can get published first and then see what happens.” Whalin’s role is that of advisor, mentor and listening post, but there are days, she conceded, when she feels more like the student than teacher: “I leave here every Monday just thrilled and impressed by these students and their willingness and their talent. They’re just a great group of kids.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

It was fantastic.” Junior Trevor Steadman, who plays baritone sax, said his favorite part of the trip was getting the chance to meet people from different cultures that share his love of music. “Every day when you went to rehearsal or just met someone from another band on the beach, you had the opportunity to meet a new person or a different culture altogether. These spontaneous occurrences made each day a new adventure and added a spark to the already awesome experience. “We got to talk one-on-one and see where their band was from, how their culture influenced their musicianship and what they did to get here. This is where the most self-reflection occurred, and it gave each person an individual perspective on where he or she is as a musician and what it takes to reach that

Garin Elementary School, the second elementary school established in Brentwood, will celebrate its 40th birthday this year with a special party for students, staff and alumni on Friday, April 30 from 4 to 8 p.m. The event features a barbecue dinner and other refreshments, celebratory activities and games, and a historical display outlining Garin’s past. Former Garin teacher Wanda Groseclose and students from her 1984 fifth-grade class will provide a blast from the past as they open a time capsule the students buried 26 years ago. Event organizers are in search of alumni willing to donate pictures for the historical display and speak at the event. If you have any information to share about Garin and its history, e-mail info@garinparentsclub.com. If you would like to speak during the alumni ceremony, e-mail Garin Principal Stacy Joslin at sjoslin@brentwood.k12.ca.us. Garin’s 40th Birthday Bash will take place on the Garin campus, 250 First St. in Brentwood. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Garin Parents Club to support Garin programs.

the kids,” Hurst said. “We got to do a lot of fun Hawaii things like surfing, snorkeling and parasailing; those kids just love the beach. We also got to visit Pearl Harbor and do some sightseeing, but the trip was all about the music. We got to learn from a lot of different bands, and this is an experience they wouldn’t get anywhere else.” Hurst said one of the highlights of the trip was sitting in on a workshop hosted by Stephen Williams, one of Australia’s most accomplished conductors. Williams spent an hour working with the Liberty band, giving the students pointers on how to improve their performances. “The students learned so much in such a short time, and we all really appreciate how the community supported our fundraising efforts to help us get there,” Hurst said. “It was a dream come true, and we wouldn’t have been able to go without the ongoing support of the Brentwood community.” Hurst said she’d also like to take members of the Liberty band back to the Pacific Basin Festival, but for the next few years, the band will return to its usual tour schedule, visiting Disneyland in the spring.

It’s a Matter of Law By Amy Alvis & Barbara A. Frantz HEY, THAT’S MY STUFF! My client wants to hire an expert consultant to make part of a product that my client is manufacturing. Both parties are very talented with respect to their particular areas of expertise, but they need each other in order to have a successful product. My client wants to make sure that he has all the rights to the finished product, and that the consultant can’t re-sell his part of the technology to someone else. The consultant feels that his contribution will revolutionize the industry that they are in, and wants money at the back end of the transaction based on the success of the product. For this, he is willing to charge a lower hourly fee up front. How does this all get sorted out? First, I am grateful that my client came to me before having the Consultant start working. I can work through the details with my client, and document whose bringing what to the table. Another client didn’t, and now no one knows who owns what, with both parties claiming that they have full rights to the product. One issue that comes up most often is that the “concept” originator believes that there would be no product without his creativity. But there is a big difference between saying, “I have a concept for a restaurant where people can eat in their car” and actually creating a McDonalds® franchise. While everyone is friends, there are usually no issues, but when the money starts rolling in, if these matters are not sorted out in advance, disputes arise

often leading to litigation. There are several types of agreements associated with the process of creating “Intellectual Property.” There’s a Confidentiality or Non-Disclosure Agreement, a Work for Hire Agreement for high-level project managers/engineers, an Independent Contractors’ Agreement for the more common activities associated with work to be done, a Certificate of Originality, a Co-development agreement, a cross-licensing agreement a joint venture agreement and more. All of these agreements cover different aspects of the creation process, and have different remedies for a breach. Come see me if you are creating something that will have lasting value, whether it’s an invention, software technology, video games, artwork, music, or just an idea whose time will come. We’ll sort it out together. The information above is not a substitute for seeking legal advice. Barbara A.

Relay from page 5A The Brentwood Luminaria Ceremony begins at 9 p.m. on Saturday, June 12. Oakley’s Luminaria Ceremony, scheduled for 9 p.m. on Saturday, May 1, will be a little different. Event chair Cathleen Knight said although a few guest speakers have been scheduled, all participants are invited to take the stage and share their memories with the crowd. “We have an open-mic style ceremony,” Knight said. “We want to give members of the teams a chance to speak and tell their stories. Some of the stories will be sad; some will be funny – but it’s important that we share these stories to remember our loved ones and keep their memory alive.” According to Oakley Luminaria Coordinator Lisa Brizendine, as the night proceeds, the somber mood evolves into one of hope. The event is 24 hours long, but the hope generated by the evening of reflection gives participants the strength to continue on and welcome the dawn, a metaphor for renewed hope. The Antioch Relay Luminaria Ceremony is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. on Saturday, June 26. Antioch Relay Co-Chair Amanda Roa said the Luminaria Ceremony is the true heart of Relay For Life. “I think the Luminaria Ceremony is the most moving part of Relay. It’s the part that tugs at the heartstrings the most. To see all of those bags on the track is beautiful, sobering and inspiring all at the same time. The sheer number of bags on the track is shocking – to think that all of those people have been struck with

COMMUNITY

the disease, and that there are probably many more people than that affected in our community alone.” Roa said the ceremony also has a unifying effect as everyone, in one way or another, is touched by cancer. The sheer number of Luminaria draw attention to how many others must be fighting the same battle. It’s helpful to know you’re not alone. Luminaria bags are free, but donations are welcome. To obtain a Luminaria bag to honor a cancer survivor or in memory of someone who has lost the battle, contact the Luminaria Committee for the Relay event in your area. Contacts may be found on the Relay Web site, www.relayforlife. org. Those wishing to decorate their bags may do so on the day of the event. Some choose to decorate their own bags, but Knight said the luminaria committees are more than happy to decorate the bags for attendees, inscribing the honoree’s name and a message of hope. “Some people like to really go all out with their bags and decorate them with pictures and stickers and glitter, but the committee can do it for you as well,” Knight said. “We’ve been having decorating parties all year long. The next one is Monday, April 12 at Gehringer Elementary School at 7:15 p.m.” For more information about the Luminaria ceremonies, visit www.relayforlife. org, select the Relay event in your area and choose the Dedicate Luminaria tab on the left side of the screen.

Time to think outside the BART box Bay Area motorists in general and East County motorists in particular know that the area suffers from a significant transportation problem. The daily bumper-to-bumper grind on Highway 4 frays nerves, wastes time and gas and increases air pollution. The Highway 4 Bypass gets more congested by the month as traffic stacks up at Sand Creek Road. And major arterials such as Lone Tree Way, Brentwood BouDITORIAL levard and Main Street in Oakley are no picnic, either. Fortunately, help is on the way as work finally gets underway on the eBART line from Bay Point BART to Hillcrest Avenue in Antioch, and construction restarts on the widening of Highway 4. Unfortunately, those projects aren’t scheduled to be completed until 2015, and motorists can expect a lot of inconvenience in the meantime. It’s understandable that many East County residents, who have been paying BART taxes for decades, are angry

E

that we don’t already have a BART line in place through East County all the way to Byron. This has been due to politics – East County lacks the clout of Silicon Valley – and economics: BART costs more than $200 million per mile. It would cost more than $2 billion to extend BART to Antioch, and reaching Byron might require $5 billion. As a result, with only $500 million in available funding, we’re getting eBART – a light-rail, diesel-powered version of BART – to Pittsburg and Antioch. But it might be time for East County transportation planners to start thinking outside the expensive BART/ eBART box. A private company, CyberTran International, is proposing an innovative mass-transit alternative that might cost as little as half of eBART, provide many more stations, run on clean electricity instead of diesel fuel, be more efficient and stimulate an economic boom in transitoriented development around the stations. CyberTran is partnering with eTranzUSA, an Antiochbased company headed by a former Press employee, to find

LETTERS Sobering stats

Editor: A national poll last year revealed that the State of California produced the lowest test scores in the subject of history across the United States. To go even further than that, in the State of California the lowest overall test scores were produced by Contra Costa County. Some may ask “why?” or “how?” does this happen and why isn’t the problem being addressed accordingly? California State Supervisor for Public Instruction Jack O’Connell recently stated, “Many schools, while making real academic gains, have fallen short on the federal measure.” I am writing this letter in the hopes to unveil this detrimental statistic so that we can change the education of our peers locally. Professors at the local “State” and “UC” levels are informing students of this as attention is brought to this matter. This is an issue that cannot be ignored and must be changed.

Railroad should fight its own blight

Editor: Residents of Antioch, Oakley and Brentwood have complained about trains stored on railroad tracks throughout our communities. You can see the trains in several locations along Highway 4, by the Hillcrest exit, in downtown Oakley and from the Highway 4 Bypass. These trains are full of gang tagging and graffiti. While other businesses in the area are required to clean or cover up neighborhood blight, these trains remain an eyesore. In Oakley, we are not allowed to store large vehicles in front of our homes and can be cited for letting excessive weeds grow in our lawns. I have spoken to several of my neighbors in Oakley and Brentwood who agree this is a problem. In order to get more information about this problem that is affecting residents, I called and talked with a spokesperson from the Oakley Chamber of Commerce. I was informed the chamber has received many calls and complaints about the trains; however, they had no information about anything being done about the problem. I would like to ask why these trains have not been cleaned up and repainted. Why is the railroad not held accountable for their unsightly contribution to our landscape? As a community we clean up our streets, parks and the Delta. Should

the funding and governmental support to put together a demonstration system in the next year or two and launch a commercially viable project in three years. With much of eBART still on the drawing board, the potential is there to replace it with CyberTran and extend mass transit to Oakley, Brentwood, Byron and possibly Discovery Bay for cost of extending eBART merely to Antioch. We encourage East County officials to study that possibility while the window of opportunity is open. It if turns out to not be viable to replace eBART at this point, CyberTran should be seriously considered for the future extension of the line from the Hillcrest eBART Station into far East County. With government at all levels mired in an ongoing budget crisis, we need to rethink the expensive, one-size-fitsall approach and start forming public-private partnerships to explore innovative, inexpensive alternatives that will get people out of their cars and help save the planet.

the community get involved in cleaning up these trains if the owners of them will not? I suggest a Boy or Girl Scout troop pick up a brush and make the Delta a better place to live. It is insensible that the railroads are allowed to get away with this. Jeanne Anderson Brentwood

Caring for animals is sign of humanity Editor: In the United States, neglect and abandonment are the most common forms of animal abuse. An animal is being beaten or abused every 10 seconds. Other forms of abuse include animal testing, puppy mills, factory farms and even animals that live in an abusive home. A study done by The National Coalition against Domestic Violence shows that 85.4 percent of women and 63.0 percent of children reported incidents of pet abuse after arriving at domestic violence shelters. Shelters and animal agencies receive 6 to 8 millions animals a year and about 3 to 4 million of those animals are killed within a week by painless lethal injection or by inhumane methods, such as the use of carbon monoxide or decompression chambers because they were not adopted. There are 6 to 7 million homeless animals just in the United States. Also, an estimated 2 million animals are used in research in the U.S. each year. More animals are being abused and used than there are animals actually living a good healthy life. On Oct. 4, 2000, Ann Downing stated, “Organizations which have promoted the welfare of animals over the years have raised society’s awareness of

cruelty to animals.” An example of one of these organizations is the ASPCA, which was one of the first humane organizations in the western hemisphere. Animal cruelty is the worst thing in this world through my eyes. People need to give a voice to those animals and not abuse them. Animals are innocent and have just as much right to be treated as we do. Erica Calderon Brentwood

Devil not easily dismissed

Editor: The attempt to change the name of our historical Mount Diablo has been a continuous battle. This is all due to Oakley resident Arthur Mijares, who, as a devoted follower of the Christian faith, feels that it is “profane and derogatory” to name a mountain Diablo, the Spanish word for devil, and proposed the name adjustment to the United States Board on Geographic Names. The first attempt was in 2005, a year after former President Ronald Reagan had passed away; thus the name change in his honor. Mount Diablo came to be known as such from an incident that occurred in the year 1805 with Spanish settlers hunting for Native American runaways in a small village. After surrounding the village and preparing to strike, they were stunned to know that the whole village has unexplainably vanished; subsequently dubbing the mountain “Monte del Diablo.” Although it is highly unlikely that crusader Arthur Mijares will get his way, many people in the East Bay community feel a great deal of opposition toward the name change. They made that pretty apparent, saying things such as, “Thanks, see Letters page 18A

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Bank of Acquittal (B of A) Big bank. Big help. As part of its continued efforts to participate in the government’s Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP), Bank of America has completely revamped the way it attacks mortgage, or loan modifications. Announced on March 24, 2010, Bank of America will now look at principal forgiveness – ahead of interest rate reductions – when modifying certain home loans. Unlike previous initiatives, this program will be geared towards borrowers who are so far underwater that they are unlikely to be helped by a government housing relief plan. According to Barbara Desoer, president of Bank of America home loans, “Bank of America has found that many homeowners who owe considerably more on their mortgages than their homes are worth are reluctant to accept a solution that addresses only the amount of the payment without an accompanying reduction in the balance due on the loan.” So how does it work? “Earned principal forgiveness” will be considered for borrowers who are at least sixty days late on their mortgage and have a current loan-to-value (LTV) higher than 120%...whereas their home loan is over 120% of their home’s current market value. If found eligible for the program a borrower’s home will first undergo an ini-

tial appraisal to ensure fair market value is properly documented. From there an interest free forbearance of principal will be applied, and for those borrowers who stay in good standing on their new mortgage, they will annually be awarded with “principal forgiveness”. This will continue for up to five years during which time the amount of “forgiveness” on principal balance will never be more than 20% in any one year, and the overall, the amount “forgiven” will never be less than 100% of the home’s current market value. Set to begin in May the program is estimated to erase as much as $3 billion in principal owed by thousands – an estimated 45,000 – of severely delinquent borrowers who owe more than their homes are worth. Although Bank of America did not provide a state-by-state breakdown, spokesperson Rick Simon stated “the largest block would be in California.” In other words, if your home loan is with Bank of America, start calling customer service now! Take advantage of the assistance and work to have your debt acquitted.

Letters from page 16A Arthur, for cramming your ideology down our throats and ignoring 200 years of Bay Area history,” reported by newspaper columnist Tom Barnidge. In any case, it seems as if it may just be a disagreement of opinions. My outlook is: if you really want to be a good Christian, why not feed your fellow hungry man? Volunteer for a beneficial charity or establishment? Financially support your place of worship? Besides, we all know that if you are going to change the name of a mountain from “Diablo” to a past president, the obvious choice would be Richard Nixon, no pun intended. Favio Delgadillo Brentwood

Not pining for the past

Editor: If stopping development is such a good idea, why have property values collapsed at the same time that development has shut down? Didn’t property values actually increase dramatically when new development was happening? Prices shot up from 1995 to 2005, the same time that we had a large increase in housing and have fallen since housing slowed in 2006. The economic impact of housing – the jobs, the new stores, the revenues to local governments, the parks, the schools, etc. – all help make a community strong. The proper balance of housing, openspace protection, support for agriculture, etc. is what works well. Brentwood is a prime example of this approach. Having everything on one side or the other can be a disaster. Maybe these people writing letters to the editor yearn for the old Brentwood of pre-1990. I certainly don’t. Unlike them, I am proud of our city and only want to help get it moving forward again. If you really believe that shutting everything down makes sense, then take a look around. Welcome to 2010! The cur-

rent economy, housing values, crime rates and lack of opportunity is apparently what they had in mind. Kristine Stoker Brentwood

Well done for wellness

Editor: We would like to thank California’s 11th Congressional District Representative Jerry McNerney for helping to pass the Health Care Reform Bill. It was a courageous step in the face of the insurance industry attacks. We finally have something that will help the American people. Now Congress needs to work toward allowing all Americans, if they choose, to buy into Medicare. Joe and Meryl Trebino Brentwood

Don’t count on Calamity

Editor: Charles Handwork, in his recent letter to the editor, paints a horrid future now that healthcare reform has been adopted. But just consider the idea of the future the insurance industry gave us when with amazing hubris, Wellpoint raised individual rates up to 39 percent just ahead of the healthcare vote. They had the audacity to make those increases even in the face of pending legislation. Well, Mr. Handwork, it seems the insurance companies were truly the ones who just didn’t get it! And you call on us to throw out Jerry McNerney because he voted to rein in an out-of-control industry. I don’t think so. We need Jerry McNerney. Now Mr. Handwork, what’s all this about 46 percent of doctors soon to be leaving their practice, according to “the latest poll,” because of the new healthcare program? Your letter never identified this most interesting poll, but what see Letters page 20A

Letters from page 18A is so intriguing is that you are telling us we will soon have nearly half of all physicians claiming welfare because they will be forced on to the streets. I have an answer to the Handwork Calamity. I’m sure you will like my plan. To ease the strain of this anticipated mass medical exodus, I would like to propose an Adopt a Doc program. If every few blocks of Brentwood would adopt a doc, the doctors would stay employed and each area of our city would have a physician in residence. How would that be? Personally, at age 73, I’d like my neighborhood to pick up a decent cardiologist. Keith K. Wheeler Brentwood

Kudos to congressman

Editor: This letter is to thank Rep. Jerry McNerney, 11th District, for supporting the health care bill. Now: 11,000 residents (in the 11th District) with pre-existing condition will be able to acquire insurance, provide tax credits and assistance to 123,000 families, extend coverage to 35,500 uninsured residents, save 1,500 families from health care bankruptcy and get full prescription drug coverage for 90,000 seniors on Medicare. In this great wealthy country, every citizen should be health and now it will be so. Sharon McClellan Brentwood

Happy for health care bill

Editor: Thank you, thank you, Congressman McNerney, for voting in favor of health care reform. The passing of the bill is a historic victory of epic proportions for all Americans – families, seniors, young people, workers and small businesses alike. All Americans will now have the security of knowing that they won’t risk losing everything if they get sick or are in an accident. Finally, insurance companies will be held accountable – they will no longer be able to increase premiums, deny care when it’s needed most or deny coverage because of a pre-existing condition. I am grateful to you and proud of you at the same time. It has been said that health care reform is a civil rights issue, but I think it goes further than civil rights; it is a human rights issue. Thank you for helping to make it into law. Kati Short Brentwood

Thanks to dog rescuer

Editor: Just want to thank the kind soul who found my dog Aggie on March 3, 2010 and brought her to the animal shelter in Martinez. Laurie Schwartz Oakley

Booster Crab Feed a huge success

Editor: The Liberty High School Athletic Booster Club would like to thank all

Summer/Fall Enrollment

persons involved with the recent Crab Feed put on for the Athlete’s on Feb. 6. This was the first Crab Feed event for the club and the proceeds benefited the student-athletes of Liberty High School by supplementing the state budget dollars that we all know are decreasing every year. With the support of the local businesses and community, our goal is to minimize the impact of these budget cuts and allow athletes to continue to participate in the sports they love. The event was held at Veterans Hall in Brentwood, crab was provided by Justin’s Crab Company in Vallejo, and all catering duties fell to the extremely capable hands of Tony D’Enterprizes out of Vallejo. Music was provided by local favorite Sixstrings, who kept us on the dance floor until right before closing with their incredible cover sets of classic dance and rock songs. Thanks to the 2010 Liberty women’s soccer, men’s baseball, and track teams for the dedication to setup, serving and cleanup duties. Special thanks go out to the entire Liberty Booster Club Board for once again organizing a great event enjoyed by all, and especially Lynn Carpenter, who tirelessly handled the ticket sales and distribution for the entire event. The next event is the annual Truck Raffle Dinner, this year to be held on Aug. 28. For tickets and information, please call Booster President Mark Stone at 925-858-1418 or Vice President Tony George at 925-915-8669. Next year’s Crab

Everyday people come into my office reminiscing about 2006 and what their home, rental properties, cars, boats and almost anything else you can think was worth. They talk about salaries and commissions made and trips taken. The stories all seem so happy until they tell me that their home, rental properties, cars and boats are now worth less than 50% of their original price and they have taken cuts in pay and benefits while doing the same job, if they are lucky. This is devaluation and deflation in its most basic form. What we have today is not worth what we paid for it and the value of our labor is not what we were paid before. Don’t let anyone fool you, we are in deflationary period the likes we have not seen since the great depression which is causing catastrophic devaluation of goods and services in the United States and around the world. The days of buying now and paying later are over. The leverage game is over and the bill has arrived. To the extent you can pay the bills, that is in your best interest. However, if you are only paying the minimum on your credit cards, interest only on your house or not saving for retirement, you should consider the following: 1. The most important thing you can do is save for your retirement. We are living longer and therefore eating longer. We need money in retirement for that food and other stuff like disposable reading glasses. You will need a minimum of $3,000 per month in today’s dollars for every month you want to be retired and this should not include Social Security. 2. Nobody ever remembers what they bought with credit cards. Stop using them. Cash is king and you will remember what you bought and you will buy less. 3. A house is just shelter. You can’t eat it or take it with you. Never use more than 30% of your gross income for shelter and that must include principal, interest,

property taxes, insurance and maintenance. If you are paying interest only, you are renting from the bank. This is not the time to have your head in the sand. Below is a quick test to see your financial condition. 1. Can you pay off your credit card debt in full in the next 12 months? 2. Can you pay off you home loans in full by the time you retire? 3. Are your cars owned outright? 4. Are you putting away sufficient monies each month so that you will be financially independent when you retire? 5. Do you have 6 months of expenses in savings for an emergency? 6. Are you able to pay your bills as they become due and owing? If you answered “no” to 2 or more of these questions, you should seek legal counsel on the options available to you. The devaluation and deflation of us and our stuff is happening here and around the world. There are financial relief options available to you just like there has been to Wall Street and Main Street. They did not suffer and you should not either. We are a debt relief agency. We help people file bankruptcy relief under the bankruptcy code.

Heritage volleyball looks for good year by Dave Roberts Staff Writer If not for a powerhouse Deer Valley boys volleyball team, the Heritage boys volleyball team would have gone undefeated in league play last year. Instead, the Patriots finished 12-3 in league (18-13 overall) and made it to the NCS playoffs for the first time – by all accounts a very good season. “That was an exciting time,” said Coach Bess Haldi, who has helped build the boys volleyball program from scratch. “There’s always a stigma (with boys volleyball) – they think it’s a sissy sport to begin with. But Heritage has some tremendous athletes. They tend to get pigeonholed into a particular sport and go into the off-season and stay with that sport. We have always been able to scrape by. Last year’s JV team only had seven players; varsity we had like 10. So it’s sort of an uphill battle for us. Last year was a pretty nice ending for us to even make the playoffs.” Anyone who has watched competitive volleyball, with its rocket spikes, body-sacrificing digs and leaping blocks, knows it’s anything but a sissy sport. And the word seems to be getting out. “This year I had an influx of senior football players who are learning the sport and loving it and saying

Heritage High held a volleyball clinic recently to introduce young players to the sport. they wished they had played since they were freshmen,” said Haldi. The starters include center Josh Ibarra, outside hitter Daniel Regan – “he’s being recruited right now by a few colleges,” said Haldi – middle blockers Robert Uwaechie and Nick Monroe, and liberto Estefan Garcia. “We have a lot of talent,” said Haldi. “This year I think once we start gelling a

little more in terms of confidence, I think we should be able to do OK.” The Patriots have started the season slowly. As of last week they were 3-6 overall and 2-1 in league play. Facing very tough preseason competition, they lost their first five matches, failing to win a game in any of them. But since then they’ve done much better, sweeping Livermore, Liberty and Pittsburg – although they did lose a shutout to Antioch. Although it will be a challenge to repeat 12-3 in league – particularly with Deer Valley looking as strong as ever – Haldi is optimistic her team will again be competitive. “I am thinking that we can do fairly well if we are consistent and stay on our game here,” she said. “I have got great enthusiasm for it. That alone will be able to give us some momentum going into the season.” On Tuesday Heritage visited Freedom and on Thursday hosted Deer Valley, the results of which were not available at press time. The Patriots’ next game is slated for Tuesday, April 13 at Antioch. Heritage also recently held a volleyball clinic that attracted 18 participants. The clinic is both a fundraiser for the team and an opportunity to introduce younger players to competitive volleyball. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Getting their kicks he Freedom girls soccer team recently took advantage of cooperative springbreak weather and hosted a fundraising skills camp for kids 6-13. More than 60 campers attended the four-day program. Coaches Mark Crockett and Cary Kawalkowski supervised 14 varsity players who coached the campers as they passed, juggled and played their way to a fun and enlightening week of soccer.

King comes to raceway After two weeks of hosting the wingless and 360 winged sprint cars, the Antioch Speedway will provide the stage for the powerful King of California 410 sprint cars this Saturday night, April 3. One of the top shows of the season, the event spotlights the lightning-fast big sprint cars on the banked 3/8-mile clay track. After a rained-out first weekend of the season, the King of California opened its 2010 championship chase last weekend in Placerville. Johnathan Allard of Chico won the 30-lap main event, and nine-time King of California champion Brent Kaeding finished second. Kaeding, a multi-champion legend in Western auto racing, feels especially at home on the Antioch track. Last weekend’s winners: Wingless Sprints: Heat – Tommy Labbortea and Jim Perry; Trophy Dash – Jim Perry; Main Event – Billy Macedo, Jim Perry and Rick Sharp. 360 Winged Sprints: Heat and Dash – Craig Smith; Main Event – Craig Smith, Jeremy Burt and Billy Anton. Super Stocks: Heat – Mitch Machado; Main Event – Larry Damitz, Mitch Machado and Eric Berendsen. Pure Stocks: Heat – Jeff Bettencourt and Dan Mccown; Dash – Chris Sorenson; Main Event – Chris Sorenson, Jeff Bettencourt and Michael Rydman. – Contributed by Jack Menges

Coach from page 1B we do in the wins and losses column. He seems to be a good teacher of the game. And, to me, good coaches are good teachers. I believe John will do a good job in developing a work ethic and being involved in school and being a part of a team.” Lucido said six defensive starters will be returning next season – “some young linebackers who are stepping up and doing a really good job.” He’s also looking forward to the return of quarterback Billy Cloninger, who threw for more than 1,200 yards despite starting only seven games, and wide receiver/ cornerback Shamawn Wright, who has been attracting attention from college scouts. The coach is also looking forward to the play of his daughter, Gianna, who kicked the past three years for the freshman and JV teams and will be stepping into the shoes of another female kicker, Dallas Butterfield, who is graduating. The challenge will be rebuilding the offensive line. “I’m very excited because I know the players very well,” said Lucido. “I have been coaching them for a long time. I think we are all excited. They know what I bring to the table. I have been there a long time, and it’s a dream of mine.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Freedom comes from behind in opener by Michael Dixon Correspondent For Freedom and Liberty’s baseball teams, last week’s league opener was an opportunity for a fresh start following winless preseasons. For the first 3½ innings it was all Lions, as they led 6-0. But Freedom rallied to score twice in the fourth, four times in the fifth and once more in the sixth for an exciting 7-6 victory. Alex Morrow hammered a home run to straightaway center field to kick off the comeback for the Falcons, who had scored two runs early in the fifth inning and appeared set to tie the game with runners in scoring position and nobody out. After forcing consecutive nonproductive outs, Liberty pitcher Xavier Alexander looked like he might escape trouble. But Joe Starick hit a bloop single to left, tying the game at six. Freedom took the lead the next inning on a Ryan Petrangelo single that scored Javier Carrillo. Bryan Wargo, the winning pitcher and unsung hero of the game, finished the game with a perfect seventh inning. Wargo pitched three and a third, allowing no runs and one hit, keeping Freedom in the game. The Lions got things going in the first inning, loading the bases with nobody out. But Freedom pitcher Dante Mayes got the next two hitters out without allowing any runs, and it appeared he would get out of the inning unscathed. However, Mayes then beaned Dillon Gallegos and walked Eric Lagomarsino to bring in two Liberty runners. Liberty’s Jordan Flint drove in three runs on a bases-loaded double in the fourth. Anthony Zamora singled in Flint to give the Lions their 6-0 lead and chase Mayes from the game. Wargo came in to pitch for Freedom in and shut them down from there. When asked about what his team did differently

Liberty’s Jordan Flint slides into third as Joe Navilhon readies for a tag in a 7-6 Freedom come-from-behind victory. today in comparison with the preseason losses, Falcons Manager Gary Alexander said, “Nothing, because we very well could have lost that game. The bottom line is that we have some talent that’s young; we have to get comfortable in our own skin. It’s going to take game after game and little successes; then they start to get comfortable in their own skin, and we’ll see what happens.” Concerning the Falcon rally, Alexander said, “The assistant coaches were getting fired up in the dugout. I don’t know what they said because I was over coaching third. But they finally got it going a little bit.” On his team’s early run production, Lions Manager Greg Borland said, “We put the ball in play. When we put the ball in play, a lot of things happen. We kept the strikeouts down, we moved the ball around, put the pressure on the other team, and made things happen from

the very beginning. We battled, and that’s all that I can ask for.” Borland acknowledged that the Lions need to put away games when they get 6-0 leads. “We need to improve our mental toughness,” he said. “Mentally, we need to approach every pitch and every inning like it’s our last. The way you start a game, you need to finish a game. And until we can get that down, we’re going to have games like this.” This week, Liberty was scheduled to host Deer Valley and Antioch while Freedom was scheduled to play at Heritage and host Pittsburg. Both teams play on the road in tournaments in the coming week. The next league game for Freedom is at home on April 13 against Deer Valley. On the same date, Liberty will be at Pittsburg.

Freedom from page 1B of the Williams girls – first Amanda, then Hannah (and another Williams, freshman Madison, is now stepping into their very large shoes) – who have dominated on the mound and at the plate. Last year Hannah went 15-0 pitching for Freedom in league play (23-4 overall) while compiling a .649 slugging percentage. While fellow senior Chrissy Stalf (hitting .402) was also key to last year’s offense, and Freedom featured several outstanding fielders, it almost seemed like Freedom could have sent Hannah onto the field by herself (plus a catcher on defense and a runner on offense) and she would have won a heck of a lot of games. Freedom’s moving from Amanda to Hannah was a bit like the Yankees acquiring Lou Gehrig after already having Babe Ruth. Falcon fans might well wonder if Madison will be the Joe DiMaggio who extends the string of greatness. “I don’t know that you can compare anyone to Hannah,” said Freedom Manager Jeff Jonas. “To have Amanda is something that most coaches will never have. And then to have Hannah right after her, that’s like, whoa, it’s just a dream come true. Then you get Maddy. She’s had to work a little bit harder. She’s maybe not as natural at it as the two older sisters were. But she’s really worked hard for the last year on getting her movement and good spins on the ball. “One thing she has that’s very simi-

lar to her sisters is: when the pressure gets on, she actually gets a little better. She doesn’t get real flustered out there. She’s basically the same kid whether the bases are loaded or not. I always thought that was a great trait that Amanda and Hannah both had. She’s got that trait too. And that’s what’s going to make her a successful pitcher as she goes through her career. She can handle the pressure.” Boding well for the Falcons for the next four years is that they have not just one very good freshman pitcher in Williams, but two more: Lyveana Ilayan and Maleya Stamps. Ilayan pitched last week’s shutout of Liberty. “Livvy did a good job keeping the ball down,” said Jonas. “We knew Liberty swings the bat pretty well. So we were hoping she’d keep the ball low and get a lot of groundballs, which she did. She didn’t have a bunch of walks today, which is important. That’s what we’ve kind of been telling her: if we can keep the walks down, our defense is pretty good and we can pretty much control the tempo a little bit there. She hit her spots. I thought her drop was working pretty well. “Hopefully, we’re going to get her to develop some more pitches. She has five pitches, but to actually be able to throw those in a game situation as a freshman is asking a lot. But if you have two you’re better off than most. If you’ve got three then you’re really doing it. Her drop was working well, her curve

was pretty good today and her fast ball she was spotting.” Williams and Ilayan will be alternating in the starting spot while Stamps will be used in relief. “She’s got a lot of movement on the ball,” said Jonas of Stamps. “It looks like you should be able to hit it, but it gets real frustrating because it’s moving all over the place. It’s kind of like bringing in a screwball pitcher almost after seeing a fastballer for a while. And she’s one of the better freshman competitors I’ve seen; she’s a real fireplug.” Helping the pitchers is a strong defensive lineup with lots of experience, including Jackie Zepeda at third, Kim Westlund at short, Kirstie Strelo in left, Malena Padilla in center and Priscilla Olmos in right. “It gives those young pitchers a good feeling,” said Jonas. “Because you know if the ball is hit near somebody we are probably going to make a play. And that’s a great confidence booster when you don’t have to be perfect every pitch.” As good as the Falcons are on the mound and in the field, they might be even better at the plate, if the 11-0 blowout of Liberty is any indication. They scored six of their runs in the third inning – the first three coming off a home run by Zepeda and the rest the result of five singles. They added five more runs the next inning, thanks to a triple, two doubles and three singles. “We’ve been working hard on hitting,” said Jonas. “We’ve been paying

a lot of extra attention to it. Today it looked like it. A lot of times we do things and it doesn’t look like we coach anything. But today it looked like the kids were doing all we wanted them to do at the plate. That makes it a lot easier for the pitchers; it makes it a lot easier for the defense. And generally when you’re hitting, everybody feels pretty good.” The Falcons were definitely feeling pretty good after the Liberty game. It seemed like they were picking up where they left off last season. “That team last year was a very special team,” said Jonas. “There was some outstanding talent there. “This team, I would say, has to rely on the whole team coming together and everybody having an impact on the game. We can’t just rely on Hannah or Chrissy Stalf doing something for us. Everybody’s got to contribute. That’s not bad. Sometimes that’s a good thing when everybody knows they have to contribute. “I am pleased with this group. They are a good hard-working group. We got a ways to go before we can talk about (equaling) last year’s team or the teams in the past. We’re real young. We get one win, we’re happy. Tomorrow’s a new day for us.” Freedom was scheduled to play at Heritage Tuesday and host Pittsburg Thursday. Their next home game is Thursday, April 8 in a non-league contest with St. Francis.

Sutter Delta expands cancer care services To improve the level of cancer care and services available to the residents of Antioch, Brentwood, Oakley, Discovery Bay and other nearby cities, Sutter Delta Medical Center has appointed Dr. Jeffrey Cronk director of the hospital’s growing cancer program. Cancer care requires a variety of specialists and services. The care of a single cancer patient can involve several types of physicians and cutting-edge-technology. In recent years, Sutter Delta has recruited specialized physicians, purchased advanced diagnostic equipment, recruited a nurse navigator and oncology resource nurse to help patients understand their disease and navigate the complex treatment process, and established a cancer committee to oversee cancer services and seek accreditation as a Community Cancer Center from the American College of Surgeons. “We have a committee of internal medicine specialists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, pathologists and radiologists,” said Cronk. “We all work together to make sure that our patients are getting the best care possible from screenings to treatment and follow-up appointments.” Sutter Delta is a member of the Association of Community Cancer Centers and is working towards accreditation by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.

“There is no reason for cancer patients in our communities to have to travel to receive state-of-the-art care,” added Cronk. “We’re offering advanced screenings and treatments already, and we hope to continue to grow the program to rival the best programs out there.” “We’re really proud of what we’ve accomplished,” said Sutter Delta CEO Gary Rapaport. “Dr. Cronk is a fantastic leader. He is knowledgeable and compassionate, and we know that he will help us continue to expand the cancer program and services to meet the needs of East County residents.” Sutter Delta is part of the Sutter East Bay Region and a Sutter Health affiliate. Its sister hospitals, Alta Bates Summit Medical Center and Eden Medical Center, are already accredited cancer centers, and patients requiring more-advanced treatments and procedures have had access to them through those facilities. Sutter Delta Medical Center’s 800 employees and more than 250 physicians on staff have been serving East County’s communities since 1967. Its services include 24-hour emergency care, a family birthing/ women’s health center and advanced cardiovascular care. Sutter Delta Medical Center is a member of the Sutter Health network of doctors, not-for-profit hospitals and other health care service providers.

Harlem Globetrotters return to Bay Area After garnering rave reviews from Bay Area families in January, the world-famous Harlem Globetrotters are set to bring more excitement back to San Francisco, San Jose and Berkeley in April. The Hall of Fame team will bring its Magical Memories Tour to the Cow Palace in Daly City on Friday, April 23 at 7 p.m.; HP Pavilion at San Jose on Saturday, April 24 at 1 p.m.; and Haas Pavilion on the campus of University

of California Berkeley on Saturday, April 24 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for all three games are on sale now at each venue’s ticket office and through www. harlemglobetrotters.com. The newly added games feature some of the most extraordinary athletes and entertainers, including new talent not present in January’s games: former Chicago Bull and NCAA dunk champion Hi-Lite Bruton; dribbling magicians Handles Franklin, Blenda

Rodriguez and Dizzy Grant; and lightsout shooter Wun The Shot Versher. Now in their 84th consecutive season of touring the world, the Harlem Globetrotters exhibit a captivating assortment of trick shots, high-flying dunks and incredible ball handling wizardry – plus side-splitting comedy – presented by some of the world’s greatest athletes and entertainers. In a nine-month span in 2009, the Globetrotters made a triumphant

return on TV, showcasing players on “The Amazing Race,” “Hell’s Kitchen,” “Jon & Kate Plus 8” and “The Bachelorette,” as well as “The 61st Primetime Emmy Awards.” Last month, the Globetrotters continued to make history as the first professional basketball team to play a game on ice. They took to New York’s Central Park and defeated the Generals wearing ice cleats and hockey helmets.
