Boat pageant to salute Pixar by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

To infinity – and beyond – Delta boaters and water enthusiasts will be setting sail for the Discovery Bay Opening Day Parade on April 17. The community’s official kickoff to the boating season embarks at Lighthouse Bay beginning at 1 p.m. and disembarks at the Discovery Bay Yacht Harbor between 3 and 4 p.m. Those without waterside access to the action can enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the parade as it makes its way through the town’s many sloughs and bays before dropping anchor at the Discovery Bay Marina. This year’s theme – It’s a Pixar Day – will pay homage to Pixar Studios, the creative force behind such classic family films as “Toy Story,” “Cars,” “Finding Nemo,” “Monsters Inc.,” “The Incredibles,” “A Bug’s Life,” and this year’s Acad-

Members and non-members alike are invited to enter their boat in the parade and enjoy a variety of activities and exhibits at the Discovery Bay Marina throughout the day. “All participants in the parade are invited and welcome to come back to the yacht club for the awards ceremony and party afterward,” said Anderson. “There will be food and dancing; it should be a fun day.” For a map of the parade route, or to sign up for the event, call Anderson at 925-216-4411, or e-mail pat4411@sbcglobal.net.

Proposal could keep Old River flowing by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

A local developer has approached the Knightsen School Board with a proposal to convert the soon-to-be closed Old River Elementary into a charter school – possibly as soon as September. Brentwood resident Ron Nunn and a coalition of local supporters presented the idea to the school board during a special workshop meeting on March 31. “We’re just kind of developing the idea at this point,” said Nunn, who has longtime roots in East County. “But the prospect of a using a vacant school that is very nice, and the opportunity to provide some alternative sites in East County, is appealing.” Knightsen School Superintendent Vickey Rinehart agreed that a charter in Knightsen could be a good option for students county-

wide, and can’t deny the possible financial boon to her district that has struggled to make ends meet since opening Old River in 2008. The district owes an annual $265,000 on a bank loan that was secured to finish Old River School, and Rinehart has said coverage of that loan through a lease with Nunn’s group would be a powerful incentive. “One of the obvious benefits to Knightsen would be to have the yearly payments on our loan covered,” said Rinehart. “It would also be an advantage to other students who live in any area that touches Contra Costa County because they would be able to enroll in the charter. It (a charter) offers the possibility of drawing kids from a variety of sources that might not otherwise be available.” Funded with public money, charter schools fall somewhere between private and public schools,

Aaron comes home, waits for donor by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

For the past six months, Elizabeth Tanner and her young son Aaron have been living in Los Angeles in a rented apartment, waiting for the call that could save Aaron’s life – news that a new heart and kidney have become available for transplant. The wait continues, but now Elizabeth and Aaron are doing it at home in Brentwood, surrounded by her husband and two older sons. Doctors at UCLA Medical Center agreed two weeks ago that Aaron was stable enough to go home and wait for the news with his family. And for Elizabeth, the joy is indescribable. “You know, we drove past Lowe’s a few days ago, and Aaron looked at the sign and said “Mommy, we’re home.” And for me that was so great – to know that we are really home after being gone so long. It was so hard just seeing the boys and my husband on the weekends. This is so, so much better.” Aaron was born with a heart that functions on only the right side. Doctors discovered last summer that Aaron – who has undergone seven open-heart surgeries since he was born – needed a simultaneous heart and kidney transplant. Renal failure has placed too much stress on the boy’s heart, and without the rare double-transplant surgery, Aaron’s chances of survival are low. The family has been waiting for a donor for the double transplant procedure and Aaron has been at the top of the donor list since December. Doctors say a proper match could take as long as six months to a year, and since Aaron’s condition appears to be stabilized – although he goes to UCSF Medical Center three days a week for kidney dialysis – the best medicine, for the mo-

Should the family get the call that a donor has materialized, a medical air flight company will whisk Aaron and Elizabeth from Byron Airport to Los Angeles within the four-hour window of time. If they’re in San Francisco at a medical appointment when the call is made, they’ll fly out of SFO. “I’m a nervous wreck, I’m terrified and I’m overly cautious,” said Elizabeth. “But I’m still happy to be

home and Aaron is happy and playing and not so scared. It (coming home) was the right thing to do.” But doctors have imposed some restrictions. Aaron must avoid crowds and public places where he might compromise his immune system. Elizabeth has adjusted by taking Aaron with her to the grocery store at see Tanners page 14A

Something old, something new in Knightsen The Knightsen community joined the Knightsen Town Advisory Council (KTAC) and Contra Costa County District 3 Supervisor Mary Nejedly Piepho to celebrate the recent designation of a Heritage Tree and the completion of a sidewalk project. Also in attendance were Knightsen Elementary School District Superintendent Vickey Rinehart, East Contra Costa Fire Protection District Chief Hugh Henderson and former KTAC Chair Seth Cockrell. “It was a great opportunity to celebrate and recognize two significant achievements in the Knightsen community,” said Piepho. “I am thrilled that we could find a way to complete the downtown Knightsen sidewalk project with the use of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, American Recovery Reinvestment Act funds and county local road monies. I am also extremely pleased that we could preserve a piece of the history in the Knightsen community by preserving the landmark eucalyptus as a Heritage Tree.” The sidewalk renovation began with a search for funding in late 2006. The Knightsen Garden Club was successful in 2008 in securing a CDBG funds in the amount of $50,000. An additional $50,000 in CDBG funds were secured under the American Recovery Reinvestment Act of 2009 and the remainder of the project was funded by the Public Works Department.

Knightsen residents and county officials, above left, help Supervisor Mary Piepho cut a ribbon dedicating the new sidewalk they’re standing on in the town’s downtown area. Above right, a newly installed plaque now adorns Knightsen’s oldest living resident: a tree planted by George Knight in 1885. The project included the replacement of approximately 250 feet of deteriorating irregular concrete to provide a safe and accessible pedestrian route along Knightsen Avenue. The work began in late July of 2009 and was completed ahead of schedule. The application to designate the 84inch diameter eucalyptus tree, located at the intersection of Delta Road and Bar-

tels Drive, as a Heritage Tree was received from KTAC by the Department of Conservation and Development on June 30, 2008. The application was recommended 4-1 by the East County Planning Commission at its November 10, 2008 meeting. The Heritage Tree status was unanimously approved by the Contra Costa Board of Supervisors on April 21, 2009. The tree is believed to have been plant-

ed more than a century ago by Knightsen founder George W. Knight, who used it to mark his land. The Swainson’s hawk, a threatened species, is believed to be nesting in the tree. The Heritage Tree project was a response to concerns that arose last spring when the tree was pruned, and the desire for its preservation as a community landmark and an object of ecological and historical significance.


PRINCIPAL REDUCTIONS?! The banks, at the prodding of the government, have come out with multiple plans to modify mortgage payments over the past several years, but they’ve met with limited success. Many “experts” say that if they really want to head off the coming flood of foreclosures, what we need is across-the-board principal reductions in mortgages to the value of the home. [Yes, I realize this could be construed as “rewarding” someone who got into debt over their head, but that’s whole different discussion.] Seems like none of the big banks were ready to take that step as a general policy—until now! Bank of America just announced a limited plan to consider writing down certain mortgages. If you have a BofA loan, don’t get too excited just yet, as there is a lot of fine print to qualify. BofA will be scouring their loans to see who might qualify, and they will be contacting those borrowers directly, so they’ve asked people not to call BofA and flood their phone lines. Here are the details: The loan must have originated from Countrywide, and it is either a “sub-prime” loan, an “option adjustable-rate”

loan, or a “prime” loan that has a fixed-rate for two years before adjusting significantly higher. The loan must be at least two months behind, and the loan balance must be at least 120% of the home’s value. There are also some complicated rules regarding if there is a 2nd mortgage, and whether or not your 1st mortgage is a “portfolio” loan. If approved, you have to keep your account current for the next 5 years, or the balance could go back up. Also, if you sell the home within 5 years, you’ll have to repay part of the forgiven balance. They are just putting their toe into the water on this process. If it’s a success, they (and other banks) may expand it. However, if borrowers who are now current start defaulting in droves to try to qualify for the principal reduction program, look for them to shut the program down in a hurry!

The crash heard ‘round the campus by Haylee Matteri Correspondent

Liberty High School’s junior and senior classes this week were escorted out to Ohmstede Field for what they expected to be another boring assembly. Little did they know many of their fellow classmates and friends had been “killed.” The Every 15 Minutes event, held

with the assistance of the Brentwood Police Department, was a simulated drunkdriving accident involving four Liberty students – Felix Navarro, Lindsay Hull, Jason Fancey, and Kayla Russick – and 24 other students who had been “killed” in simulated accidents earlier that day. The program began with the somber announcement of deaths read by a Brentwood police officer, a school counselor

and a leadership student. “Just seeing the reactions on the students’ faces was emotional enough,” said Zachary Masongsong. Judging by the tears shocked expressions, you would have sworn a family member had just died. Fancey was chosen to be the student responsible for driving under the influence of alcohol. He had sped head-on into an oncoming car, ejecting his best

friend Russick through the windshield, killing her on impact. In the oncoming car was driver Hull along with her bud Navarro. Both students were badly injured. Hull suffered broken bones, a collapsed lung and massive neck injury. Navarro’s liver was lacerated and windshield glass was plunged see Crash page 18A

Odyssey champs challenge community by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

If you’re smarter than a fifth-grader – or just think you are – a group of Brentwood Elementary School students have a challenge for you. On April 29, the school’s two state-championship teams in the recent Odyssey of the Mind contest will compete against community organizations and businesses to help raise funds for their trip to the Odyssey of the Mind world competition this May in Lansing, Mich. The teams, comprising 13 students and five coaches, have been recently knocking on the doors of local businesses and groups, challenging them to pit their problemsolving abilities against the fifth-graders’ impressive skill sets. “This is just a great way to pause and have a little fun and hopefully raise some money for the trip,” said Mary Black, Brentwood Union School District director of curriculum. “These kids have worked so hard to get this far and we want to be able to help them the rest of the way.” Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. The local event, to be held at the new Edna Hill Middle School theater from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., will pit teams of adults against the state champs in a series of spontaneous problem-solving challenges. The problem will be presented to each team, and their job will be to come up with as many possible answers/solutions as they can in three to five minutes. The teams with the most solutions will be declared the winners. “We’re asking community groups to register a team, and then each team will go against the kids,” said Black.

to you and past the guards. What would you ask Jane to bring you, and how would it help you get out of jail?” Another example might be a storyline problem in which someone starts a story and each team member adds a sentence.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

A Golden Opportunity Officially coined in 1968, California’s “Golden State” nickname is truly fitting based on our state’s history; California’s modern development can be traced back to the discovery of gold in 1848. With that said, first-time buyers – defined as someone who has not owned a home in three years – have a golden opportunity in the form of a brand new tax credit! Just like the gold rush of 1848, this credit will not be around forever. Once the program is out of money it’s over…first come, first served. The Bill (AB183) was signed on March 22nd, 2010, and allocates $200 million in funds for first time buyers in the State of California. Of that amount, according to Governor Schwarzenegger, “$100 million will go for buyers of new, unoccupied homes; the other $100 million will go to first time buyers of existing homes.” In order to qualify for the credit, a first-time home buyer must purchase the home as an owner-occupied home, and they cannot buy the home from any relative, and they must live in the home as their primary residence for at least the next two consecutive years starting from the date of close of escrow. The actual tax credit will be 5% of the purchase price, up to a maximum

credit of $10,000, and must be applied in equal installlments over the buyer’s next three years’ California state income tax filings. If the buyer sells, or moves out of the home within two years following the close of escrow, any of the total tax credit already claimed by the buyer in any California income tax filing must be forfeited back to the State of California. With the Federal tax credit set to expire on May 1st, 2010, California’s new tax credit could not have come at a better time. First time buyers who sign purchase agreements between May 1st and December 31st of 2010, and close escrow by August 1st, 2011, are eligible. But remember, this is a first come first served deal we’re talking about. After James W. Marshall found gold at Sutter’s Mill an estimated 300,000 migrated to California. Bringing it back to modern times, when a similar California state income tax credit was available last year, with a $100 million limit, 10,659 firsttime buyers used up all the money in the first four months. Don’t miss out this time, if you qualify!

Tanners from page 4A off-hours and keeping visitors to a bare minimum. And when Aaron celebrates his fifth birthday this week, it won’t be the big bash he wants, said Elizabeth, but a celebration all the same. “Well, of course he wants a big party, he’s 5,” she laughed. “But I can’t have him out and around so many people, so we’ll have to keep it more low-key. We’ll stay home, have some presents and pizza. It’ll be good.” And as the family prepares to celebrate Aaron’s birthday, the community continues to celebrate the Tanners with fundraisers to help defray medical expenses not covered by insurance, plus the family’s ongoing struggle with the threat of foreclosure. A loan modification snafu in October placed the Tanners in arrears with Bank of America for tens of thousands of dollars. Elizabeth said she is working with a bank representative and hopes to soon reach an agreement that is reasonable and possible. But for the Tanners, certain things are simply more important. “We saw the cardiologist last week and he said he didn’t see any big changes in Aaron from when he saw him in June,” said Elizabeth. “So if we can just hold on, we’ll be OK. Every night we have a bag packed and we’re ready to go. Wherever we go, we take the bag with us. We know we are going to get that call and we are ready. Right now it’s about being together and keeping things as normal as we can. Time with each other is the most important thing we have,

Falcon cheerleaders win national title by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

The Freedom High School varsity cheerleading squad is known for exuding a lot of spirit, celebrating Falcon football and basketball victories. But now the squad has something new to cheer about: themselves. The 24-member squad took home top honors in the Super Varsity Show Cheer Intermediate division at the United Spirit Association’s 2010 High School and Dance/ Drill National Championship competition last month, beating 27 teams to take the prize. After placing first at three regional competitions to qualify for the national competition held in Anaheim last month, coach Sandra Torres knew her team had a good chance to out-cheer the competition. “This team was not only talented, but they were hardworking and dedicated,” Torres said. “They had the performance skills, energy and showmanship along with the gymnastic and stunting skill level that it takes to win nationals. I did believe that we were strong contenders to win the title this year. “One of the cheerleaders asked me in a team meeting the day before prelims, ‘So what kind of realistic chance do we have against 27 other teams?’ I answered, ‘A very good chance. You are definitely one of the favorites.’” Cheerleader Kirsten Hulsey never

The Freedom High School varsity cheerleaders performed at the United Spirit Association’s 2010 High School and Dance/Drill National Championship competition, where they took the top prize in their division. expected to take home the title, but credits the squad’s success to its dedication to teamwork. “You always dream to win, but I didn’t realize how ready we were, as a team, until we got to nationals,” Hulsey said. “In order to win, you have to be a team. “A few months ago I would have never thought we could do this. Our team went through a lot of struggles this year with

relying on each other. Practicing every day over spring break made us all closer and we became a family. … We all felt a whole new bond, and with that, we knew we could win.” Sophomore Arianna Smith said winning the title feels like winning the lottery: “During the year, we lost girls and gained girls. We had our ups and downs as a team,

but in the end, we became sisters. After our first (regional) competition win, we knew we were destined for greatness and that’s what happened. We made it to nationals and through strength and encouragement we won it all. “We shed tears and yelled cheers. We became a cheer family that will never be broken, and we made (Freedom) history as champions and no one can take that away from us.” For Tariah Cheney, the victory is not only a validation of the team’s hard work; it shows that cheerleaders work and practice just as hard as other high school athletes: “If someone says that cheerleading isn’t a sport, then I want to see them out on that mat, in front of that many people, while dancing, yelling, flipping, jumping, throwing, catching, running with a smile on your face. It’s not as easy as it looks. … It feels amazing (to win). We practiced so hard and had so much dedication, and it finally all paid off.” The 2010 United Spirit Association’s National Champions are Taylor Armas, Christyana Barber, Tariah Cheney, Kelsey Ertmer, Haylee Garlock, Desiree Glynn, Tawni Hawley, Shelby Henriques, Hayley Hodges, Kirsten Hulsey, Hannah Kline, Sasha Lahham, Alex Lauderdale, Mikaila Lucido, Olivia Magoon, Julia Martinez, Jaclynn Mullins, Brittney Regalado, Caitlin Rice, Sara Sloan, Arianna Smith, Holly Soares, Taryn Ternes and Alexa Torrano.

Don’t sell Brentwood short – hold the ULL I have read the proponents’ commentary with their appeal to the residents of Brentwood to move the Urban Limit Line (ULL) so that they may build on their land west of Heritage High. They claim in moving our 2006 voter-approved ULL (adopted by our city in 2008) for them, they will bestow on Brentwood millions of dollars in revenue, amenities and road improvements. UEST They say it’s about control COMMENT for Brentwood residents – how so if you embed the entire plan you envision for our western border in the Measure itself ? We have a border, we have control, we have a General Plan – we’re voting to stop their development plan. You see, we too have lived in Brentwood for upward of 20 years, and we’ve been attempting to preserve our agricultural heritage and small-town charm since we arrived. We wanted a town that was different from every other cookie-cutter town in the area: a sense of community, less congestion, more quality. Voters, if you buy Measure F, you are buying the landowners’ development agreement: 1,300 homes, 35

G

acres of stores and 4,030 more residents. The local control they tout becomes their control to make millions, amending our current General Plan for this area to twice the houses, one-third the parks and open space, tying the hands of current/future councils, planning commissions and residents and engulfing our western hills. If you check the landowners there, you’ll find Fremont and San Jose entities own most of that property. The developer consultant they hired also championed the ability to build in Antioch’s Deer Valley in the first place and is attempting to break the ULL in San Ramon – yet he asserts no conflict of interest. Do you think these “supporters” have your best interest at heart? Hardly. Bottom line: If you acquire 740 acres in the western hills to develop 560 acres (76 percent), how on earth will that alleviate the problems of congestion, tapped services, overcrowded schools, east/west Balfour Road safety and the American Avenue calamity? It won’t. Simply put, the amenities they suggest are inappropriate for the geographical area they profess to safe-

LETTERS Solution: Yes on F Editor: “If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.” For the safety of Brentwood’s children and families, we must finish American Avenue and widen Balfour Road. The county is broke and has ignored numerous requests. As long as the south side of Balfour to Deer Valley is outside of Brentwood control, the City of Brentwood cannot do any of these road improvements. Putting Brentwood in control by supporting Measure F in June is the only way these roads will be fixed. Do not listen to the opposition and become “part of the problem” that risks the bloodshed of Brentwood’s children and families. Vote Yes on Measure F in June and be “part of the solution” for the safety of Brentwood’s

Keep Brentwood in control Editor: As a resident of Shadow Lakes, I am most concerned that we in Shadow Lakes and those in Deer Ridge are being sacrificed by partial truths from opponents of Measure F. If we do not support Measure F and Antioch develops these areas, we risk losing our ability as Brentwood residents and voters to have any input as to what is proposed in the new neighborhoods to our west. Our two neighborhoods will be most affected, as we are the adjacent neighbors and will be most impacted by the quality of the building and road improvements. The landowners in Measure F have agreed to no apartments. They will have to go through all environmental approvals. They will have to go through the Brentwood Planning Commission and the Brentwood City Council for approvals, but only if this Measure F passes. This is the only way we can guarantee Brentwood control. Antioch can have a land measure like this one or larger. An Antioch measure would move their city limit west from Deer Valley Road to our doorstep. It is not if but when they will come if we do not pass Measure F. What input and control will we have as non-residents of Antioch if this happens? None! The only way we can have input and control is to keep Brentwood in control by supporting Measure F in June. Dan Petersen Brentwood

guard. They lead you to believe Antioch or others “can come right in and build there.” Not true. It’s outside the ULL, only open to the same parcels it has now – agricultural. When the economy does recover, Brentwood’s already approved 4,000 housing units and up to 1 million square feet of commercial space should yield millions of dollars of improvements. We don’t need Measure F to direct developer or general funds for our road and service enhancements – they’re already in the works. We aren’t anti-growth unless you go outside our Urban Limit Line, you bind us to your development agreement, and frankly when your plan defies common sense. Measure F will ruin Brentwood’s great planning. Its patronizing claims offer uncertainties, not actuals. Don’t be fooled by these developers’ attempt to snatch our western hills for their wealth and future enjoyment – not in Brentwood – they’ll be long gone and we’ll be stuck on Balfour or the Bypass, yet again.

EDITOR

Cause and effect flip-flopped Editor: Ms. Kristine Stoker got it all backward in her letter to the press on April 2. Her statement was “If stopping development is such a good idea, why have property values collapsed at the same time that development has shut down?” Property values collapsed because the borrowers who were given loans that they were unable to pay had to go into default or foreclosure. The lenders had to do something with all those properties, so they lowered the prices to make them more attractive to potential buyers. Developers were forced to lower their prices to compete and most of them stopped building rather than sell houses cheap. You got the cause and effect backward, Ms. Stoker. I too am proud of Brentwood. But I am not blind to the overcrowded streets, the overpaid school administrators, underpaid teachers and overall congestion brought about by bad planning. If you really want more development in our city, then make the developers build new streets, widen the Highway 4 Bypass and widen Balfour road before they build all those houses. Bill Sumner Brentwood

Animal welfare – what you can do Editor: I am writing in response to Erica Calderon’s letter (“Caring for animals is sign of humanity,” April 1) regarding the high number of abused, neglected

and abandoned animals in this country. This is a huge problem and I would like to share a few ideas as to how to make a difference in the lives of animals. If you are planning to add a new pet to your family, check out the animals available at an animal shelter or a rescue organization rather than buying from a breeder or pet store. Two rescue groups in East County are HARP (Homeless Animals Response Program) and HALO (Homeless Animals Lifeline Organization). They hold adoption events at pet supply stores on weekends, or you can go to their Web sites to see animals available for adoption. If you have pets, be sure to have them spayed or neutered. The Contra Costa County Animal Shelter provides low-cost spay/neuter services and some East County veterinarians do low cost spay/neuters as well. (Well-Pet Veterinary in Pittsburg and Abbey Veterinary in Antioch are two that I am aware of.) Keep up with current animal welfare legislation and contact your government representatives about supporting humane animal laws. Both the Humane Society and the ASPCA have very informative Web sites. You can even e-mail your representatives directly through their Web sites. Donate to an animal welfare organization or volunteer at an animal shelter or rescue group. Report any suspected animal abuse or neglect to Contra Costa County Animal Services. I believe we can make a difference. Heidi Vaughn Brentwood see Letters page 19A

ANTIOCH April 4, 3:11 a.m. Izuchukwu Onyeagocha, 22, and Fatima Amerson, 32 – both Antioch residents – were southbound on Auto Center Drive when their vehicle hit the curb, crossed the sidewalk and grass and struck a large concrete pillar. The car flipped over and came to rest on its roof on Costco Way. Upon arrival, officers arrived found the vehicle engulfed in flames and the female passenger still inside. The driver had gotten out of the vehicle under his own power. Some officers worked to get the passenger out of the car as others fought the flames with extinguishers.

He and all four passengers in the second vehicle were taken to a nearby hospital.

On the night of April 5, Antioch and Brentwood police officers stopped and arrested Lumford without incident as he drove away from a house in the 2100 block of Thomas Road in Brentwood, where Lumford’s mother lives. A short time later, Antioch SWAT members and Brentwood police served a search warrant on the home, searching for evidence related to the murder. No significant evidence was located on the premises. When interviewed by Antioch police investigators, Lumford admitted to shooting into the car as it drove away. It appears he was just an onlooker and it is unclear why he was compelled to shoot at the car. Lumford was booked at the Contra Costa County Jail for a warrant charging murder. He also was booked for a separate warrant held by the Brentwood Police Department, charging him with possession of a firearm by a felon. Lumford is on parole for robbery.

Fancey was escorted to a squad car while Russick was taken off the hood by a group of firefighters after being pronounced dead. Hull’s car was in shambles, trapping her and Navarro inside. After pulling Navarro out of the car and laying him on a body board, the EMTs pulled Hull from the car and put her in an ambulance, which sped away to the nearest hospital. Navarro was airlifted out, but did not make it. That left only Fancey, whom officer Bell escorted out of the car to administrate a field sobriety test. Fancey wobbled and swayed and admitted, “I can’t do it.” He was handcuffed and arrested for DUI. The silence was almost deafening. According to Summer Rodriguez, a fiveyear veteran of the Every 15 Minutes program, “The emotional impact on the students follows them way past high school.

Letters from page 16A Choose the change you want Editor: Hard times are a windfall for wouldbe politicians. Time and again the rally cry of “they’ve gotten it wrong” rings out across paid-for ads during political seasons, and the more difficult the times, the greater the mileage the claim gets. During times of difficulty the populace gets desperate for relief and begins to fall into an “anything but this” mindset and simply votes for a change of guard. I don’t know that there could have been a more blatant case of this than in 2008 when the winning campaign slogan was simply “Change.” Complex, multifaceted problems had been so successfully simplified to a singular cause there was no need of a measurable or identifiable direction for the change. “Change” was just accepted as the cure for an ambiguously defined, overly generalize problem completely obscuring the very real possibility that change could also be for the worse, much worse. My goal in this letter is not to shed opinion on whether the political turmoil of this past year has resulted in change for the better or the worse, but rather to make a call for accountability the change offered. My concern is more in the number of surprises, the sheer number of astonished voices I heard over what came about as a result of the final vote a year ago last November. I am stunned at just how many people, everyday citizens and “experts,” don’t understand what exactly really changed or what it means. Most don’t know what it’s really intended to mean, including myself. My dismay has been in the number of shrugged shoulders and rolling eyes followed by statements of “not much we can do.” Nothing could be further from the truth. As a matter of fact, only “we” can do “it.” If you feel you have a solid handle on what is changing, where it is going and you like it, then stand up and do everything you can to make sure it stays on track. If you are dismayed, feel betrayed or never liked what was happening to begin with, then stand up and get things back on track.

Garin to go over the hill in style by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Forty isn’t typically a milestone that people fuss over too much. Usually the 50th anniversary – the golden celebration – gets all the attention. But one Brentwood elementary school isn’t waiting another decade for a reason to throw a party. Brentwood’s second elementary school, Garin, turns the big 4-0 this year, and to celebrate, the school is pulling out all the stops, especially after the passing of one of the Brentwood Union School District’s most beloved icons. “Life is too short, and we never know what tomorrow will hold,” said Principal Stacy Joslin. “After the passing of (former Garin principal and BUSD superintendent) Bill Bristow this past year, we realized that we are all getting older, and we want to celebrate each momentous occasion as it comes. Forty years is quite an accomplishment in itself. We’re the third oldest school in the district. We are hoping to reach more people who will be able to participate (this year) rather than waiting 10 more years, when people may be harder to locate.” Joslin said the 40th birthday is also an ideal milestone to acknowledge because in this time of massive education budget cuts and “economic gloom,” people need a reason to celebrate, have a good time and remember “the happiness that comes from teaching children and the success of those who have come through our halls.” Over the years, those halls have changed. Today’s Garin barely resembles the school that opened in 1970, and to highlight the changes, the 40th birthday celebration will feature a Walk Through Time display, a collection of photos and artifacts marking each decade of Garin’s existence. Alumni are invited to sign and share their favorite moments on the Memory Wall, and visit the Find Your Face Display of class photos. In keeping with the birthday theme, the celebration will feature games, music, snacks, and of course, cake.

Old River from page 1A tion for both gifted and struggling students. Nunn said possible plans for the charter school, which would initially serve grades K-4, would include a variety of programs unique to area public schools, including bilingual instruction for every student. The charter could also provide job opportunities for teachers recently laid off due to district budget cuts. A new charter school in East County (currently there are two, both located in Antioch) has the potential to open myriad opportunities to students throughout Contra Costa, including those who are homeschooled or simply unsatisfied with their current schools. Students from any district could move to the charter without permission from local districts and take their statefunded dollars with them. Since California gives school districts an annual per-student subsidy based on the size of the school district, many school districts are alarmed by any loss of students

“We want this to be an event not only for Garin alumni but for the entire community,” Joslin said. “The school has physically transformed over the years, but the Garin spirit remains the same. I’ve been principal for only three years, but I’m always meeting up with people who have attended Garin, and people always have such great memories to share, so this is a party for everyone because Garin is very much a part of the Brentwood community. So many people have dedicated their lives to this school.” While more than 30 classrooms currently occupy Garin’s First Street campus, Wanda Groseclose remembers when there was only one. Groseclose, who taught at Garin for 21 years, said Garin started off as a school for fourth- and fifth-graders. She shared a large open-space classroom with three other teachers, which made her job exciting yet challenging. “When I first came to Garin, the main building wasn’t divided into classrooms as it is now,” Groseclose recalled. “The four of us shared this one big room – we each had our own corner. Open space classrooms were all the rage at that time, but as education evolved, as it always does, that method went out the window, so we put up walls, and then we had six classrooms.” Groseclose stayed in Room 1 until she left Garin in 1995, but her decades of service to Garin and the school district remain prevalent in the BUSD. Groseclose helped co-author “American Music Through Time,” a musical performed by fifth-grade students, which originated at Garin but is now performed at the BUSD’s seven elementary schools. While Groseclose’s musical has helped hundreds of Brentwood students travel through time via song, a class project she put together 26 years ago will help birthday guests do some time traveling of their own. In 1984, Groseclose’s fifth-grade class assembled a time capsule that was buried near her residence on Payne Avenue. Although she and her husband moved to another Brentwood neighborhood a few years back, Groseclose always planned to retrieve

the capsule one day, reassemble her 1984 class and open the capsule – and the birthday party seemed like an ideal time to do it. “When we buried it, I figured we’d wait 25 years and then open it,” Groseclose said. “One of my former students lives next door to my daughter and he told me that it’d been 25 years already, and I just couldn’t believe it. Then I heard that Garin was going to have this big party to celebrate the 40 years and people had been asking about the time capsule, so I got in touch with the right people and we’re going to open it up as part of the event.” Amy Ardzrooni, one of the celebration organizers, was thrilled when she found out that Groseclose knew where the capsule was buried, ending weeks of searching done by the party planners. “I was really excited to find out that a class from 20-some years ago buried this time capsule, but no one had any idea of where it was,” Ardzrooni said. “I was afraid it was buried somewhere on campus and that the district had built over it by now. I was worried it’d be under layers of concrete and there’d be no way for us to get it out.” Groseclose said she buried it on her property for that very reason. Luckily, the new owners, the Bristow family, were more than willing to allow a group to search for the capsule and dig it up. A sprinkler system had been placed over top of the capsule, so a few pipes were cracked along the way as part of the excavation, but in the end, the capsule was located – though it won’t be opened till the night of the birthday celebration. Groseclose has forgotten what’s in the capsule, but looks forward to reuniting with her students at the birthday celebration and rediscover the memories of 1984. “I encouraged the kids to choose items that were synonymous with the times,” she said. “Each student brought in an item and we placed it in this large metal garbage can and taped it up really well, so everything should be protected. “I believe we put in some newspapers and magazines as well. I think 1984 was the year that Michael Jackson recorded ‘We Are the World.’ I know there has got to be something Michael-Jackson-related in there. He

–and the nearby Byron Union School District is no exception. “The idea of having a charter school a stone’s throw from The Lakes community is not a welcoming thought,” said Byron Superintendent Eric Prater of the Discovery Bay development located within walking distance of Old River. “I believe in competition as an important aspect to improving any organization; however, these are dire times and every student is vital to the success of our district. “In short, this creates an educational arms race of sorts in the far East County … in fairness, long-term goals in the Byron district reflect a desire for innovation that includes the exploration of charter schools. But once the genie is out of the bottle, it will be very difficult to get it back in, and we are exploring this option with extreme care.” Rinehart agreed that the presence of a charter in the area could draw students away from her own district. Since the type of charter being proposed is one in which

the charter school acts as its own entity, any funding received would stay with the charter instead of being distributed throughout the district. And although the charter school would be supervised and overseen by the Knightsen district, it would remain financially independent. For Rinehart – whose small district currently receives state funding for its specialeducation students, as well as a rural-school grant and county dollars for its small school district – should the district increase in size due to the addition of the charter school, it stands to lose hundreds of thousands of dollars in annual support. “So for us, the financial benefit is a bit of a mixed bag at this point,” said Rinehart. “The leasing of Old River is a benefit, but another possible negative is that when you sponsor a charter you are responsible for monitoring the charter and the kids, and for that you get 1 percent of the income, which could be $10,000 to $12,000 a year. But it takes an unbelievable amount of time to do ongoing assessments, start testing, oversee

It might seem like a trash can, but it’s a Garin School time capsule holding memories and artifacts from 1984. was extremely popular at that time.” The time capsule is currently resting in Joslin’s office, but she’s been able to resist the temptation to open it. “Luckily, it’s sealed up nice and tight, so I can’t sneak a peek, but I can’t wait to see what’s inside. I remember the big hair and the neon clothes of the ’80s, but there could be all kinds of things in there. It’s going to be a lot of fun.” Now that the capsule has been located, the next challenge is locating the students from Groseclose’s 1984 class. So far, Ardzrooni has located about a third of the class, but is still working on tracking down the rest. Groseclose has also joined the search. If you were in her 1984 class or know someone who was, e-mail Ardzrooni at garinartdocent@ gmail.com. The Garin 40th Birthday Celebration will be held at Garin Elementary School, 250 First St., on Friday, April 30 from 4 to 8 p.m. Wristbands for access to carnival games are available in advance for $8, or on the day of the event for $10.

the payroll – you are in essence acting as an auditor and you have to be accurate and timely.” The next step in the process is the presentation of a petition to the Knightsen School Board, which Nunn hopes will take place at the next regular board meeting on April 14. Once the petition is presented, the district has 30 days to analyze the petition, hold a public hearing on it, and respond to Nunn and his group with an acceptance or rejection. “Now there is a huge time crunch in getting the charter written and meeting the requirements at the state level for funding and other items,” said Nunn. “This is all still in the formative stages, but we’ll see if we can get it done.” For more information on the proposed charter, call the Knightsen School District at 925-625-0073. The Knightsen School Board’s next meeting is scheduled for April 14 at 6:30 p.m. at Knightsen Elementary School, 1923 Delta Road. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Antioch motorcycle racer to turn pro by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

It’s been a tough three years for Frank Rundall since injuring his back while driving a truck for a beer company and struggling to get by on a $1,000/month worker’s compensation check. He underwent back surgery a year ago, but he’s no longer able to drive a truck and has been unable to find other work. Unable to keep up with his mortgage payments, his Antioch house is in foreclosure and he’s in the process of packing up and moving out. “My parents have helped me out, so I can live and survive,” he said. “It’s been rough.” But in the midst of this doom and gloom, there’s also been the fun and excitement of his son Josiah’s motorcycle racing career taking off. Josiah has always wanted to race motorcycles, and dad said that if he kept up his grades at Antioch High, he could pursue his dream. At age 15 Josiah enrolled in a supermoto racing school in Dixon, learned the ropes, began racing and then started winning, including the 2009 Novice Northern California Championship and the Infineon Novice Championship. He’s now about to turn 19 and about to turn pro. “Ever since I can remember, I have seen it and always wanted to do it,” said Josiah. “It’s a lot of fun. It’s all you and the bike. The winning is a lot of fun. The adrenaline rush, it’s cool.”

Antioch resident Josiah Rundall, 18, is turning pro as a motorcycle racer and looking for sponsors. Asked whether his son’s success has compensated for his own setbacks, Frank said, “It’s been so awesome to see him succeed, to see him do well in something that he loves. You always want to see your kid succeed – it’s the best feeling in the world. It’s done more than compensate for it.” For a while Josiah could relate too well to his father’s physical woes. “I was

racing in Las Vegas in a supermoto,” he said. “I was leading the whole race and went to the whoop (hilly) section. I think I was going too fast and lost control of the bike, crashed really hard and broke my foot in eight places. It was no fun. It set me back three months. I was pretty much living on my couch because I couldn’t do anything.”

Frank saw his son crash, get loaded into an ambulance and taken to the hospital. “It was one of the times that as a father you say, ‘This is a test point’ where he’s in the hospital crying and you say, ‘Do you want to keep doing this?’ He said, ‘I can’t wait to come back next year. This is the best track ever.’” Asked whether the crash discouraged him from continuing the sport, Josiah said, “It would be harder for me to not race than to get back on it after I crashed. I don’t know what I would do if I wasn’t racing. I would probably be doing normal stuff like going to college. It’s way too fun to stop.” Having won two championships, he’s already passed the hardest part of the requirement to turn pro. He’s now in the process of getting his license and looking to hook up with a corporate racing team or find sponsors. “One of the professional supermoto teams is looking at taking him on,” said Frank. “I have to buy a $6,000 Yamaha 250 full-grade racing bike. If we get everything set, he’s racing April 18 in Stockton and then racing the big one: the Infineon 2010 Moto Jam. They do flat track, motocross and supermoto. All of the pros will be there. It’s the first year going pro and he’s excited.” For more information or to sponsor Josiah, e-mail frankrundall@aol.com or call 925-779-0816. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Tri Valley Blue Devils heat up the ice by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

When you think of youth sports, several come instantly to mind: soccer, baseball and softball, followed perhaps by swimming, volleyball and football. One sport that might not make most people’s top 10 list is ice hockey – particularly in California, where hockey moms aren’t nearly as plentiful as they are in Alaska. But hockey is, in fact, being played by Brentwood-area kids, several of whom are headed to the state championship tournament held this weekend at the Sharks’ practice facility in San Jose. They are Alejandro Lorono, who plays for the Tri Valley Blue Devils Pee Wee team (ages 12 and under), and Alex Barclay and Ethan Dodd, who play for the Devils Squirt team (10 and under). On a recent weekend, the Pee Wee team took the Nor Cal Championship title (with Lorono scoring one of the goals) and the Squirt team swept the playoffs, taking home the top honors in its division. The Pee Wee team also won the prestigious Silverstick Tournament in Ontario, Canada earlier this year against 16 of the best teams in the United States and Canada. There might be something in the local water as far as hockey goes, because Brentwood native Casey Wellman recently signed a two-year $1.8 million contract to play for the NHL’s Minnesota Wild. Wellman got his start playing for the Tri Valley

The Tri Valley Blue Devils hockey team, which includes locals Alejandro Lorono, Alex Barclay and Ethan Dodd, is playing in the state championship this weekend in San Jose. Blue Devils, which plays its home games at to the next level. When in Ontario playing some of the best teams in Canada and the Dublin Iceland rink. Bill Davis of San Leandro has been the U.S. at their age level, they stepped up coaching the team for 22 years and has spe- and played well enough to win that tourcial praise for this year’s squad. “I have had nament. It’s a pretty big deal to win that some really good years, but this has been tournament for a California team. This is a great year,” he said. “The team seems to an unusually successful year – it really is.” Asked about the Brentwood-area rise to the occasion when they get to the championship game. It seems they step up players on his team, Davis said, “They are

really hard workers. Alejandro is a firstyear Pee Wee and will be returning next year. The other two – I believe they move up to Pee Wees next year. They are hard workers. The success of the team is right around what the kids are doing. You have some good players from that area.” Players also come from as far away as Modesto, Tracy and Stockton “because there’s not a lot of ice hockey in Northern California; maybe 15 rinks total. Most people don’t even know the rinks are around. It’s growing in popularity, obviously, with the Sharks. The hockey in Northern California has been around since the ’40s, believe it or not. There’s been all levels in the Bay Area. In the last years it’s really grown, thanks to the Sharks and also the Stockton Thunder pro team. That really helped develop the interest.” The youth game is similar to the pros, allowing full contact and checking at the Pee Wee level but not at the Squirt level. One difference is that fighting is not allowed – fights result in removal from the game followed by a one-game suspension. The cost to participate is $1,400 for a season (not counting travel), which pays for league fees, ice costs of $325/hour and referees’ fees. “It’s definitely an expensive sport. That’s the other reason it hasn’t taken off: the cost of playing,” said Davis. For more information, go online to www.trivalleyminorhockey.com. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

In the championship game, Holy Rosary’s trapping defense put the squeeze on St. Mary’s of Pleasant Hill from the outset, posting a 21-12 first-period lead. The shooting exhibition continued in the second half off precision plays set up for Monique Cardenas, who chipped in 10 of her 17 points. The final score: Holy Rosary 52, St. Mary’s 35. “These girls worked real hard all year long, with the goal of winning Diocese tops on their list,” said Cast. “Even though my fifth- and eighth-grade teams won the championship this year, it was a sad day for me knowing this would be the last time I get to coach my daughter and these wonderful young ladies as they move onto high school next year.”

Eco Soft Water Technology – Green as it Gets

DELTA PATRIOTS Youth Football & Cheerleading

Have you ever seen the trucks of Ecowater Systems, and wondered what those shiny silver tanks are? Or what makes them different from a regular water softener company/water store. Well Ecowater, long before it was fashionable to be called Eco anything, has been helping to reduce water pollution in our communities and surrounding Counties by offering a service of softening water without customers putting wasted salt/potassium or extra waste water down the drain from inefficient automatic water softeners. This service is called portable soft water. The service gives you all the benefits of reduced product usage in your home such as cleaners, shampoos, soaps, fabric softeners, laundry soap and detergents. It also extends the life of plumbing and appliance wear and tear, and saves you money on energy by reducing water heater costs. This is all done without the customer ever lifting a finger or ever carrying another bag of salt again. As communities try to help reduce pollution, some have had to regulate automatic softener use or eliminate their discharge into waste streams. This makes it very hard for them to filter the chlorides from the waste stream to enable reclaimed water use in parks or clean enough to released back into streams or lakes. Ecowater Systems Portable Soft Water is different. They clean the soft water in a controlled environment reusing almost 90% of their water, and the brining discharge is not dumped down the drain. It is used at the East Bay Municipal Utility District facility to create a food for some special bugs that eat it, and other products to create methane gas, which is then turned into energy. Ecowater service is a recognized and approved alternative water conditioning method in many communities. - No equipment to buy - No salt to carry - No maintenance to worry about - Environmentally friendly

“We’ve been struggling against the good pitchers with our approach at the plate, and that kind of went away today. Then all of a sudden we got a little bit of a lead and we kind of lost a little bit of focus, made a couple dumb mistakes. But Chad (Radlich) and Jack (Jorgensen) got us out of it. It was ugly but we’re definitely going to take it. “Our strength has been our pitching. There were a lot of questions about who we were going to throw against these guys. The reason I started Sean is that I knew he was going to throw strikes and make them put the ball in play. Cole (Wells), who is likely our number one, is probably going to get to see them next time. But the strength of our team is our pitching, and as long as we can get some timely hits, we

Diving from page 1B and games, but then quit after encountering the amount of work involved in doing it right. Although the dives flash and splash by in little more than the wink of an eye, it’s obvious which divers have put in the hard work and long hours to learn how to do it right. On the Wolverines varsity team, those include Rachel Cadwallader, Megan Soraoka and Isabella Navarro, all of whom participated in the NCS diving championships last year, finishing 21st, 32nd and 33rd respectively. Last year’s team was a girls-only affair, but a few boys are participating this year.

are going to be good.” The game had a scary moment when Hunter Jorgensen was hit in the head by a pitch. All seemed OK when he tossed his bat toward the dugout and ran to first. However, halfway between home and first, his knees buckled and he fell to the ground. Jorgensen was attended to and eventually got up and walked off under his own power. As a precautionary measure, he was taken to the hospital after the game. Both teams played in tournaments this week. The loss moved Deer Valley to 6-1 overall and 2-1 in BVAL play. The win elevated Heritage to 6-2 overall and 3-0 in league. League play resumes April 13 when Heritage hosts Antioch and Deer Valley travels to Freedom. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Deer Valley hosted an NCS-qualifying tournament (in which each student performed 11 dives) Thursday against Campolinda, Miramontes and College Park, and hosts another qualifier on Wednesday, April 14 at noon. On Friday, April 23 the Heritage High pool is the scene of a dual meet between Deer Valley and Liberty, followed on April 30 by a Deer Valley-Heritage faceoff. Deer Valley is at home on May 7 against Freedom. The big splashdown occurs on May 20, an all-day diving competition for the Bay Valley Athletic League championship at Antioch High beginning at 8 a.m. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Titanic fun in the sun The Nor Cal Titans White team recently traveled to sunny Arizona to watch the pros in spring training – and play a little ball themselves. Their final game was a hard-fought victory that came down to the last out. Pitcher Jake Serbin was outstanding on the mound and catcher Everett Shaffer made phenomenal stops behind the dish. Infielders Anthony Vannucci, Daniel Roberts, Cameron Taylor, Dylan Capps and Matt Pulos threw a net over opposing grounders, and outfielders Chandler Hancock, Jonathon Davis, Dalton Melendez and Brooklyn Hardiman kept a lid on extra base hits. The Titans are headed by Manager Lee Hancock and assistant coaches Scott Roberts, Ed Shaffer and Troy Davis. In the front row, from left, are Jonathon Davis, Everett Shaffer, Daniel Roberts, Dalton Melendez, Dylan Capps and Brooklyn Hardiman; center row: Jake Serbin, Matt Pulos, Anthony Vannucci, Cameron Taylor and Chandler Hancock; back row: Ed Shaffer, Lee Hancock, Troy Davis and Scott Roberts.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Get supercharged by Kiki Powers

Certified Nutritional Consultant Are you suffering from an energy crisis? Even health-conscious people can find themselves running out of energy. The good news is that a few simple changes can help you recapture more natural vitality on a daily basis.

Eat strategically Your eating habits play a major role in your daily energy flow. Fluctuating bloodsugar levels can cause energy dips, so eat regularly to minimize blood-sugar peaks and valleys. Aim for a light meal or snack at least every three to four hours. Skipping meals is a sure-fire way to undermine your energy and sabotage healthy metabolism over time, promoting weight gain. So eat light and eat often. Keep some fresh almonds, a banana and plain yogurt, or a protein bar on hand for natural energy boosts.

Embrace vitality-boosting foods For maximum energy, scale back on Americans’ three biggest energy-sapping, weight-promoting culprits: fast food, sodas and sugary snacks. Start your day with a big glass of water, and gradually replace sodas with water. As for meals, think light and healthy, emphasizing whole foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, fresh nuts, whole grains (including brown rice and oatmeal), high-fiber cereals and whole-wheat breads and pasta. Another key to stable blood-sugar levels and enhanced energy is to pair your carbs with protein. Although carbohydrates are the

body’s optimal energy fuel, they burn fairly rapidly when consumed alone – especially refined carbs with little fiber to slow their absorption. However, once slow-burning protein is added to the mix, the result is a more gradual energy release to keep you going long and strong. Good protein/carb combinations include whole-grain toast and peanut butter, a high-protein fruit smoothie, a veggie scramble, bean dip and low-fat corn chips, or string cheese and apple slices – you get the idea.

Get moving for an instant lift It’s understandable that when you feel depleted, hitting the fitness club is the last thing on your mind. No problem. Even a short walk can boost vitality. Regular exercise keeps you trim and fit and promotes the release of endorphins – the ”happy” brain chemicals. And this mood-lifting effect lasts long after you finish your workout. A good brisk walk or jog will get the blood pumping throughout your entire body, infusing your cells with oxygen and helping them function more efficiently. If you can’t commit to a big daily workout, don’t worry. The experts agree on the cardiovascular benefits of moderate activity throughout the day. Every little bit helps! Increase your efforts and reap the rewards – such as a more efficient metabolism, increased energy, a stronger immune system, greater confidence and fresh enthusiasm for life. If you’re ready to create more natural vitality in your life, make these healthy habits a priority. You’ll notice a difference – in your appearance, your energy and your overall sense of well being. Here’s to a vibrant spring!

Lots to do at 102 Friends and family celebrated the 102nd birthday of Mildred Riffle, the third person to move in to Eskaton Lodge in Brentwood. She moved to Brentwood to live close to her dear son Rex. Mildred grew up in a very small town called Marceline, Mo. She was very popular in Marceline and knew everyone, as one does in a small town. Mildred enjoyed playing basketball and was the team’s point guard. Her favorite thing to do was hang out with friends in the town’s downtown area. Her happiest time was when she went to Germany during the war. She served as a secretary for the government there for two years. She also truly enjoyed the time in her life, around age 50, when she acted as housemother for the Pi Beta Phi sorority house in Lawrence, Kan. Mildred checked in on the girls and made sure they all made it home safely at night. At Eskaton, Mildred enjoys playing cards and other games. She says she’s a happy woman – wherever she is. She enjoys the company of her son Rex and her granddaughter, grandson and two great-grandchildren. Mildred also enjoys her lunch visits with tablemate Bert, as well as hearing about world events on her radio.
