Rose Garden tiles honor veterans by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

a Navy veteran and a Pearl Harbor survivor. When he passed away six months ago at the age of 91, Galey began searching for a way to commemorate her uncle and heard about the tile program. “I thought: this is it,” said Galey. “What a great way to honor him. My aunt

Lori’s Real Estate Tip Predicting the Real Estate Market in 2012 “The experts... the brokers... the investors... the bankers... a crystal ball”... In my opinion, all have an equal opportunity to predict 2012/2013. “The experts” have been warning us as a REO listing agent to prepare for the tsunami of listings for the last 3 years... well, that never happened. Many investors and financial analysts quote history and how history is the best determining factor for future. The residential market used to be driven by you as the consumer, now we have thrown into the mix REO listings, Short Sale lender approvals, Investors, Bulk Sales and more buyers than available homes for sale. Here is my prediction: Current inventory levels are down to the year 2005, when our pricing increased dramatically. Folks, its basic supply and demand! Inventory levels down, means this is a great time to sell. I have more traditional sales then I have had in 5 years. If you are thinking about selling, I’d recommend do it now! Buying will take more patience, but the pendulum will swing back the other way and inventory levels will even back out! If you have any questions on real estate, please call for a free consultation on how I may be of assistance to you and your family.

currently lives in Sonoma County. “I thought it would be a nice gesture for my brother,” said Albro. “He’s such a great guy and has done so much for everyone. His tile will be side by side with my husband’s, so I’m happy about that.” Debra Galey’s uncle Don Wilkins was

Every week without fail, Louise Albro’s husband Richard would arrive home with a bouquet of her favorite flowers – roses. Now in a manner of speaking, she is returning the favor. “My husband used to give me roses and now he will have something honoring him in the Rose Garden,” said Albro. “Now I feel like I’m giving him the roses.” On Memorial Day, Albro will have the opportunity to view the commemorative tile in her husband’s name at the Memorial Rose Garden in Brentwood’s Veterans Park. Albro’s husband, who died 20 years ago, was a Marine who served during the Korean War. Albro is only one of many local residents participating in the Brentwood Veterans Park Memorial Tile program, a fundraiser designed to assist in the completion of the third element of the park, and which offers an opportunity for family and loved ones to honor and commemorate those who served. “It’s been going really well,” said Linda Stadlbauer, executive assistant with the City of Brentwood Parks & Recreation Department. “When people hear about the program they agree that it’s a nice way to honor their loved ones.” The tiles are available to anyone who wants to recognize those currently serving or have served in the military. Albro liked the idea so much that she ordered a second tile for her brother David Sheals, also a Marine, who

is thrilled and I’m so glad they have a program like this for us to remember him.” Natalie Dimitri got the same idea when she learned of the city’s memorial tile program. Dimitri’s father, longtime Brentwood resident and businessman Larry Lindsay, was an Army paratrooper who served three tours in Vietnam. Lindsay passed away last September at the age of 67. “I knew right away that this would be something nice to do for him,” said Dimitri of the tile program. “The reason my sisters and brother and I decided to this was because he was really proud of the time he spent in the military. He was a hero to many and he was our hero. He raised us all to be good little soldiers, and even though he wasn’t one to appreciate seeing his name everywhere, I know he would appreciate the sentiment behind this.” Currently two of the three planned memorial phases of the Veterans Park are complete. The third and final portion will be a quiet and contemplative area in the northwest corner of the park featuring white granite blocks, benches and shade trees. The city is working in conjunction with local veterans groups to raise $140,000 to complete the project. The tile project is part of the fundraising effort. Tiles are still available for purchase. The donation amount is $100 per line. For more information and details on the program, call the Parks and Recreation office at 925-516-5444. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Neighbors help neighbor after home burns by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer Friends and neighbors are coming to the aid of a Bethel Island man whose threestory home was destroyed last Sunday in a $250,000 blaze that nearly burned a number of other homes as well. Resident Tom Lucero said he was taking a nap after doing some gardening last Sunday when he awoke to a room filling with smoke and fire. Unable to use a front door blocked by flames, Lucero was forced to sprint through a wall of flames to escape through his kitchen with only the clothes on his back. In minutes, the entire house was ablaze. “We opened our door to an inferno,” said neighbor Joni Fraga-Pratt, adding that spotty cell phone service on the island made calling for help difficult. “I called 911 six times and got through on the sixth call.” East Contra Costa Fire Protection District Chief Hugh Henderson said the call came in from Taylor Place at 12:29 p.m. The first engine arrived seven minutes and 24 seconds later, just in time to save David Viramontez’s house next door. “My house was smoking,” Viramontez said. Windows shattered, paint blistered and siding buckled on the building, and a plastic skylight on the roof melted. Henderson said the Viramontez house and a motor home next door that was also damaged would probably have been lost had the response taken any longer.

Tom Lucero of Bethel Island views a charred page of his childhood Bible, which was found amid the rubble of his three-story home, seen in the background. Lucero lost everything in a $250,000 fire on Bethel Island last Sunday. The island’s Station 95 is expected to be closed in July unless voters pass Measure S, a $197 parcel tax on the June ballot. The second-arriving crew, Engine 93 from Oakley, arrived 13 minutes after the first alarm. “That was almost 2008 all over again,” said Henderson, referring to a conflagration that destroyed two houses and damaged a third just down the street four years ago. “This was a good save. I’m really proud of

our firefighters and the agencies that helped us.” According to Henderson, the cause of Sunday’s fire was undetermined. Wind-driven flames ignited a row of 40-foot cypress trees, which filled the air with flaming debris that began falling on houses downwind. “It was raining fire,” said Jeremy Copple, an ECCFPD fire captain who lives across the street and was at home with his

wife and 2-week-old daughter when the fire broke out. Copple suffered burns to his wrist and ankle as he worked to put out numerous small fires that broke out on his deck, gangway and neighbors’ docks, at times using a bucket to carry water. The absence of fire hydrants on the island forced firefighters to rely on water tenders until the arrival, 20 minutes after the fire began, of the district fire boat piloted by Henderson. The boat helped protect exposures and pumped water to the engines working the blaze. The fire required the use of all six of the district’s engines and several water tenders. ConFire and CAL FIRE moved up from Clayton and Antioch to cover empty ECCFPD stations. A total of nine medical calls came in to the district during the fight on Bethel Island, Henderson said. The house, which Lucero was renting from family members, was not insured. Islanders are hosting a fundraiser this Sunday, May 20 at Fraga-Pratt’s restaurant Tug’s, 6201 Bethel Island Road. The $10 admission pays for a beef dinner with beans, plus a green, potato or macaroni salad. The event features raffles, live music and an opportunity to make a donation. For more information, call Tug’s at 925-684-9800. “People keep saying I’m alive, and I guess that’s a good thing,” Lucero said Monday, choking back tears. “I just wish it had stopped with me. This is going to affect my aunt and uncle, too. They lost their whole house.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Antioch, Pittsburg get ready for Relay by Justin Lafferty

Survivors and caregivers take the first lap of last year’s Antioch/ Pittsburg Relay for Life. This year’s event starts Saturday, June 23.

Staff Writer Residents of Antioch and Pittsburg are committed to finding the cure for cancer. Already, 68 teams have raised more than $23,000 for the American Cancer Society (ACS) through the Antioch/Pittsburg Relay for Life – and the event is still a month away. Los Medanos College will host the annual 24-hour walkathon starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 23. Organizers are hoping to get 90 teams signed up by then. “We’ve really been trying to encourage anybody and everybody to come out and experience Relay if they haven’t,” said event Co-chair Michele Littlefield. “The morale has been incredible this year. Everybody is really excited for Relay.” Every year, throughout the nation, communities host Relay for Life events, in which teams raise money for the American Cancer Society through bake sales and other fundraisers. The goal is to have at least one team member on the track for the full 24 hours. Last year, more than 500 residents participated in the Antioch/Pittsburg Relay for Life, raising roughly $113,000. That money goes toward cancer research and prevention, but it also makes an immediate impact in the community. ACS provides services for people trying to quit smoking, offers cancer patients complimentary rides to and from visits to the doctor and helps low-income and uninsured people get treatment for the deadly disease. “We’re just trying to get an awareness of

Press file photo

both of the communities to let them know that ACS is there,” event Co-chair Judy Dawson said, “and we have a lot of wonderful services that are all free, paid for by donations.” The Relay emphasizes three stages: Celebrate, Remember and Fight Back. The event celebrates those who have defeated cancer, remembers those who have lost the battle, and fights back by helping the ACS. At the start of each event, cancer survivors take the first lap. When nighttime comes, the track is lined with personalized luminaria bags honoring those who have battled cancer. Locals Relayers have been pounding the pavement, raising awareness and dollars. Recently, participants took to the streets to paint the town purple – the official color of cancer awareness. They decorated stretches of Lone Tree Way in Antioch and Railroad Avenue in Pittsburg with purple ribbons. While the Relay addresses a somber subject, the event is full of fun. Throughout the day, local musicians take the stage to keep the walkers’ feet moving. There are also themed laps – such as crazy hats or pajamas

– and some teams go above and beyond to make it a great time. On Saturday, In-Shape Health Club, 4099 Lone Tree Way in Antioch, will host a rummage/bake/craft sale fundraiser for Relay from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Teams who have already registered for a team can set up shop in the gym’s parking lot, selling items to raise money. Littlefield said the fundraiser is also a perfect opportunity for newcomers to learn more about Relay and register a team for free. Organizers have also planned a Bark for Life in August, so dogs and their owners can keep supporting ACS after the humans have participated in June’s Relay. “We are out in the community getting donations of food and other items that we need for a successful Relay,” Dawson said. “We are so happy that we are able to have our event, our Relay at Los Medanos College.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

comps, there may be an appraisal problem. So if the second-highest offer is all cash, or has a big enough down payment where they can waive the appraisal contingency, they may get considered even though they aren’t the absolute highest. Terms are also important. If a buyer is asking for a lot of credits, that lowers the seller’s net. Sellers are also concerned about how fast or how slow the transaction will close. Some sellers want a fast close, some want a longer close, others want to stay in the home after close of escrow. Of minor concern will be items that the seller wants to take or leave (fans, speakers, playstructure, washer/dryer, etc.). The more the buyer agrees with these choices, the more the seller will like their offer, even if they aren’t the highest. A good agent will ask the listing agent what is important to the seller, besides just the price. NEXT WEEK - SHORT SALES.

I get calls from buyers now and then saying they’ve written 10-12 offers with their agent and they want to fire them and use me instead because they are sure their agent is “doing something wrong...� I’ll ask them if their agent is not telling them about properties, not returning calls, frequently not available to show properties, not looking out for the client’s interests, etc. Usually that’s not the case so I tell them their agent seems to be doing a good job for them. It’s just tough right now because there are SO many more buyers than there are homes for sale. I thought it would help if I went over some general ideas about how sellers choose offers. I’ll discuss regular sellers (those with equity), then short sales, and then bank-owned properties in a series of articles. For regular sellers, usually their main concerns are price and terms. Price is obvious, the higher the better. There are some sellers who really care about who is moving into their home, so the buyer’s “story� matters, but for most sellers, the bottom line is the main concern. Although if the highest price offer is getting a loan, and the price is higher than recent

Retirement benefits in the ECCFPD are managed by the Contra Costa County Employees’ Retirement Association (CCCERA). The fixed-benefit system is a three-percent-at-age-50 (3@50) formula, which provides 3 percent of an employee’s average monthly salary over the previous 12 months worked for every year of employment. Overtime is not used when calculating the previous year’s salary for retirement purposes. Therefore, an ECCFPD fire captain earning $5,000 per month and hired at the age 28 (the average age at which public safety employees earning 3@50 are hired, according to a study by CalPERS, the state’s largest public employee retirement organization) and retiring at 50 would receive a pension of $3,300 per month, or $39,600 per year. The benefit also provides a maximum 3-percent annual cost-of-living adjustment (COLA). By working until age 58, the same captain could retire after 30 years of employment, earning as much as 90 percent of his final year’s salary. According to CalPERS, this occurs only 1 percent of the time. About 34 percent of all public safety employees, in-

cluding police and prison guards, reach 30 years of service. “The 3@50 (formula) is an industry standard now,” said Contra Costa County Supervisor District III Mary Piepho. “(ECCFPD firefighters) are underpaid as far as the Bay Area goes, but the 3@50 provides some level of competitiveness for the district to attract skilled and qualified personnel to serve the public.” Depending on their age when starting, employees in the ECCFPD contribute between 13.7 percent (starting at age 21) and 20.20 percent (starting at age 49 or older) of their pension costs, the district paying the remaining 80 to 87 percent. As public employees, district employees do not pay Social Security taxes on wages, nor are they eligible for Social Security upon retirement. District employees are eligible for retirement benefits after 10 years of service when retiring at 50, or at any age after 20 years of service. Retirement benefits accrued but not yet paid for are known as unfunded liabilities. Due to retirement policies put in place during more affluent times plus losses in retirement fund investments caused by the recession, and because pension amounts see Fire page 14A

Join Today! Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters Marriage Marriage is such an interesting concept in its own right, defining marriage as a mortgage and you’ve now officially dedicated an entire column to your cause. Let’s start with – speaking generally and loosely of the post -World War II age demographic that purchased their first home with their first husband, or wife, and kept both until their dying day – our grandparents, or great-grandparents (depending). These individuals thought loooong term: no instant gratification via the internet, cell phone, or other means of communication other than a land-line, postal service, or walk or ride your bike to your friend’s house. When they signed up for a commitment, it was a commitment. These individuals married their spouse for the long haul and thought the same way with their mortgage…30 years or more into a marriage and 30 years into a mortgage…they thought of fixed products across the board. Statistically speaking, in 1950 the divorce rate was sitting at 1,070 per every 100,000 for men and 1,373 per every 100,000 for women. Fast forward to 2010 and – per information gathered via the US Census Bureau – divorce rates have risen to 9,255 per every 100,000 men and 12,305 per every 100,000 women. Add that increase of eight percent on top of the fact that, as a nation, our foreclosure rate in 2010 was at a record high of twelve percent and it is not an opinion when stated, “Commitment, in the form of a marriage or a mortgage, isn’t quite what it used to be.” That said, and after reviewing these facts, it is very

important to see the other side of the coin. With an eight percent divorce rate and twelve percent foreclose rate it is easy to mathematically determine that eighty-eight percent of both marriages and mortgages, in the long haul, last. In other words, there is still more than enough statistical data to support the idea of having both a good marriage and a good mortgage. Now, I’m not a marriage counselor, but I am a nationally licensed Mortgage Loan Originator (MLO), and I can tell you that from my experienced MLO standpoint, I’ve observed that communication is the key to a good mortgage. It is invaluable to discuss your loan term goals before jumping into any type of commitment…especially one with such long term consequences, i.e., a mortgage. When discussing the idea of purchasing a home, as with – and, again, I’m not a marriage counselor – discussing the idea of entering into a marriage, it is important to regress to the thoughts and ideas of those before us. “Can you live with this commitment for 30 years (or more)?” is the question/conversation you should be having with your MLO. If the answer to this question is yes, than you have my blessing. If the answer is no, than I object to this relationship, and I seriously think that you should consider the reasons behind my objection, and then ask yourself again if you can live with your commitment for at least 30 years.

Fire from page 12A are fixed, unfunded liabilities pose a major funding problem for nearly every public agency. As more employees retire, larger and larger percentages of the district budget will be consumed to pay off retirements. Approximately one-fourth of the ECCFPD’s budget now goes to pay unfunded liabilities, a total that could reach as much as 50 percent in coming years. Pension reform for new hires could include reducing the percentage of salary used to calculate retirement, using three years instead of one to figure the salary used in the calculations. Raising the retirement age and/or reducing COLA increases could also be part of a revised pension formula, all of which will require years before it impacts

the district’s bottom line, according to the county’s website. The ECCFPD’s current contract with International Association of Firefighters Local 1230 was extended last month for a year. Negotiations are expected to re-open following the June vote. Local 1230 also represents ConFire employees, who last year took a 5-percent pay cut and dropped a future 5-percent raise. President Vice Wells, in announcing the ECCFPD extension, said pensions are a significant concern everywhere, and will be under discussion when talks resume. Measure S does not include additional pay for firefighters other than a maximum 2-percent COLA. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Oakley to honor those who gave all by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer America’s Memorial Day tradition was begun in 1868 at more than 100 cemeteries throughout the nation as a way to remember and honor those in our nation’s armed forces who died in the service of their country. And Oakley residents in search of a local Memorial Day observance have been faced with two alternatives – Antioch or Brentwood. Not surprisingly, Oakley Mayor Kevin Romick has been increasingly asked the question: when will Oakley host its own event honoring fallen soldiers? That the time has finally come. Oakley will hold a Memorial Day Celebration on Saturday, May 26 at 10:30 a.m. in Oakley Civic Center Park, 3231 Main St. A couple years ago, Romick was invited by Mayor Don Freitas to speak at Antioch’s Memorial Day observance. But his continuous recommendations to Oakley residents that they attend the Antioch event only increased Romick’s motivation to establish an event in Oakley. “I just thought: maybe it’s time we had one here,” Romick said. “One thing led to another and I just said, ‘Why not?’” Romick reached out to various veterans groups throughout East County and

was surprised to discover how many Oakley residents have served in the military. In order to give the event a hometown feel, the mayor directed that all the participants in this year’s program come from Oakley. The observance will feature performances from the Freedom High School choir as well as local Boy and Girl Scouts leading the pledge of allegiance. Denise Aragon, a local Gold Star Mom, will read a poem, and Oakley Purple Heart veteran Ronald Marquart will deliver the Memorial Day Address. The Patriot Sentinel Riders, the Marine Corps League 335 and American Legion Post 161 will also participate in the event. Prior to the celebration, the Patriot Sentinel Riders will lead a motorcade into the park. Religious leaders from the local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and the Ebenezer Community Church will also be on hand to honor the men and women who paid the ultimate price. Romick, who has several family members with a history of service, will also deliver a speech about the importance of the day. He’s hoping to make this an annual tradition for Oakley residents to cherish. “We try to make it an all-Oakley event,” Romick said. “This is the day where we honor those who were lost to all the wars.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Maintain current fire service model by Kevin Romick Mayor of Oakley Recently there have been editorials, letters to the editor and blog posting against Measure S. One of the arguments against Measure S is that the fire district is too top heavy. A claim, much like the rest, that is not supported with any information, just a UEST blanket statement. The writers COMMENT generally don’t disclose their specific background and experience in the field of firefighting. So here are some facts about the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District’s staff: • Current staffing model: 48 personnel. • Four stations staffed with three personnel. • Two stations staffed with two personnel (Bethel Island and Knightsen). • 16 captains. • 15 engineers. • 12 firefighters. • 43 total and backfill five positions with overtime. The team members of the each threeman engine companies in the ECCFPD

are charged with one, big job: put a fire out as quickly and safely as possible. Be it from outside the building or inside with the flames, each person on that engine has specific responsibilities that require a unique level of training. Each three-man engine company in our district is composed of a fire captain, an engineer and a firefighter. Regardless of the title, all three will eventually play an important role at any emergency. The fire captain is the senior officer at the station and is generally responsible for the station. On the scene of a fire, it’s the captain that evaluates the situation, locates the fire, then decides which door, hallway or stairway should be used to reach the fire with the proper amount of hose, establishes a command and draws up a plan of attack. Once the battalion chief arrives on scene, the captain can then fulfill the fourth member position and become a backup firefighter, to institute the two-in and two-out safety rule. “The first five minutes determines the next five hours.” The primary responsibility of the engineer at the station is the maintenance of the fire engine and all tools and equipment

LETTERS Insurance commissioner: vote Yes on S Editor: As California’s insurance commissioner, I am concerned that the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District is facing serious budget shortfalls that could significantly impact your homeowner’s insurance rates. Measure S on the June 5 ballot will protect your current fire protection service. Most insurance companies use a Public Protection Classification program that evaluates key areas of fire protection, including emergency communications, water supply and the fire department (adequacy of equipment, sufficient staffing, evaluation

carried on that fire engine. Once the alarm is sounded, they are in charge of driving the fire engine and ensuring the safe delivery of the personnel and equipment to a reported fire or emergency and the delivery of water to the operating firefighting company. The firefighter occupies one of the most challenging and dangerous positions during the fire. Their duties routinely take them in close proximity to the fire and require a determined and experienced member. The firefighter stretches the first length of hose with the nozzle attached to the location determined by the captain. Meanwhile, the backup firefighter, the fourth on the scene (could be the captain, a battalion chief or a firefighter from the second company on the scene) moves toward the fire behind the initial firefighter, providing physical as well as moral support. The major function of the backup position is to flake out the hose line while waiting for water and to facilitate the hose line’s advance once it is charged. Two stations in the district work with two-man engine companies. They consist of a fire captain and an engineer. Their roles in this situation are similar to a three-man

of training, existence of automatic aid and geographic distribution of fire companies). Without Measure S, 50 percent of firefighters will be laid off and three fire stations will be closed. That leaves only eight firefighters daily to service the 105,000 residents and approximately 6,000 service calls each year. And if emergency response times go up, it could affect your Public Protection Class ratings and increase your homeowner’s insurance rates. Measure S will give the fire district the funding it desperately needs to maintain critical fire protection. An annual parcel tax of $197 (just 50 cents a day) will ensure adequate fire and emergency response services, and stop your insurance premiums from skyrocketing. I urge you to vote Yes on Measure S. Dave Jones California Insurance Commissioner

Measure S offers no real solution Editor: I am tired of reading all these scare tactics regarding Measure S. After years of inaction by the BOS and now the current commission, the tough decisions have not been attempted to correct the operational model and save cost. Since the union came into the district, they have almost completely wiped out the paid on-call (POC) firemen. I saw this when I was on the Transitional Fire Commission and it has continued going on for 10 years. I saw this with major arguments between the union and the POCs. The POCs in the past

company. The captain prepares the site, the engineer drives and prepares the hose lines. But they must wait for a second unit to arrive to begin applying water to the fire. Safety rules dictate a two-in and two-out policy. It generally takes five engine companies to suppress a structural fire. As each unit arrives, they all basically become firefighters, assisting to put the fire out as safely and quickly as possible. Based on training and experience, everyone arriving to a fire can be a firefighter, but not everyone can be a captain or an engineer. So when that three- or twoman engine company rolls up to your house in the middle of the night, who do you hope is on that engine? A yes vote on Measure S will not only ensure that the current service model stays in place, but every engine that leaves a fire station will have a three-man engine company arriving on scene first, and one member of this of this three-man team will be a paramedic. In addition to his role as mayor of Oakley, Kevin Romick serves as a director for the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District.

were an integral part of the district. POCs are used throughout the U.S. very successfully and not just in rural communities. POCs are efficient and save money. No one has stepped up to restructure the pension program that is underfunded and taking up too much of the operational money that could be used for district operations. Ten years ago this was brought to the attention of the BOS and nothing has been done except dig the district deeper in debt. Back in 2003, Cal Fire came in during the City Gate report and showed it could be effective in running the district while saving money. However, the union fought it, as they would have to go under Cal Fire’s work rules, and the union did not like it. The BOS, in my opinion, caved in to the union and decided not to pursue this cost-saving operational model. We all know there is a financial problem and the alarms having been sounding for many years. It is time to step up and make the hard decisions to restructure the district operationally and financially. Then revaluate if and how much revenue is needed. Measure S makes no corrections and puts the financial burdens on all us taxpayers. It is time to say to the commission and the BOS: do your job. Make the difficult decisions then let’s talk about revenue increase. As a Discovery Bay resident of 24 years, I believe Measure S does nothing regarding opening the station that was closed in DB or Byron. In fact, the plan calls for a new station in year five and not reopening any of the stations that were closed. I can see no reason

to support the measure with those types of commission recommendations. This reminds me of ObamaCare. We all agree that healthcare needs to be reformed but many believe what was passed a few years ago does nothing to solve the problem but add cost to the taxpayer. Measure S is the same. We need a real solution to our fire district. Vote No on S. Walter MacVittie Discovery Bay

Support Jim Frazier in AD-11 Race Editor: I would urge voters in Contra Costa County to vote for Oakley Councilman Jim Frazier in the Assembly District 11 race. Mr. Frazier, who is a Democrat, is the only Contra Costa County candidate in the race, which makes it vital our representation in Sacramento be local. He is vested in East County, whereas the five other candidates are from Solano County and do not fully comprehend our needs and concerns. As a Republican, I am breaking from my party line because Mr. Frazier received my support based on his merits. His local accomplishments in East County starts with his time on the City Council, where he helped balance our city budget while ensuring a 30-percent reserve for emergencies. He worked with local hospitals to help bring a doctor to Oakley with the opening of La Clinca this past December. He helped bring the first all-abilities playground to see Letters page 18A

He has also become a transportation leader in East County – successfully fighting for over $166 million in funds to improve Highway 4 and the Bypass. When it comes to the Delta, he is the only candidate who has actually fought for the Delta and invested time to protect our water interests – most recently, he was appointed to the Delta Protection Commission. Finally, his work in the nonprofit area cannot be matched by any of the other candidates. He and his wife, Janet, created the Network of Care after his daughter’s death 12 years ago. The foundation provides food bags to parents of children who are in the

hospital so they do not have to leave their child’s bedside – recently they just hit 100,000 families fed. Mr. Frazier also created the Friends of Oakley, which provided Christmas baskets (dinner and toys) to nearly 300 Oakley families this past year. They have also raised money in the past to provide Oakley teachers with gift cards to buy school supplies. In a primary that will favor his Republican and Independent opponent, it’s vital Contra Costa County voters send in their absentee ballots and show up to the polls supporting Jim Frazier. I urge voters to put party politics aside and understand that the best representation in Sacramento for AD-11 is when we have someone local fighting for us. I am proud to be supporting Jim Frazier

Thank a teacher Editor: Who would argue that teaching is not a demanding vocation? Consider, after all, the two greatest exponents of the art, Jesus and Socrates. One was crucified, the other poisoned; both in the line of duty. Not that it takes the ultimate sacrifice, though, to qualify teaching as a challenging line of work. Ask any parent, who play the ultimate teaching role, and they’ll tell you. Kids don’t readily absorb wisdom through their pores. That is why lecturing is mostly an exercise of in one ear, out the other. No one size fits all. The best teaching employs multiple approaches, with the understanding that no two kids are facsimiles. Then factor into the equation the proven theorem that kids love to do the opposite of what you tell them and you can see the wisdom of the Socratic method. Showing is better than saying but the penultimate success comes from the art of suggesting. A practiced teacher pokes and prods self-discovery. Good teaching is, in the end, doing. You might call teaching learning inside out. Given, then, that even under the best of circumstances effective teaching is a tricky and nuanced proposition, imagine the dicey mission we now have at our doorsteps. In this global economy and age of lightning-fast information, teachers are asked to deal with kids who wire down when they enter the school portals. They are asked to keep this tech generation stimulated while producing

minds that seamlessly communicate, collaborate and thrive on critical thinking. They face this already daunting task while asked to be equal parts disciplinarian, entertainer, coach, social worker, counselor, motivator, sociologist and statistician. Strikingly, one elementary teacher was telling me that years back it was expected that you might have one or two “problem” kids in any given class, say a child suffering A.D.D. or maybe from a troubled home. Control issue, yes, but the juggling came with the territory. Nowadays, the teacher reported, that classroom management factor typically runs six or eight or 10 kids, with gripping issues such as homelessness, parental unemployment, child abuse, family addictions, latch-key environments or stressed-out commuter parents. That’s a lot of fires to put out. Broken families? That phrase from another age that once stirred concern now sounds hopelessly old-fashioned in its lament. Facts are, more than half of marriages dissolve and some communities have born-out-of-wedlock rates at 70 percent. As backdrop, Antioch has seen a 250 percent increase in group homes and a 200 percent increase in foster homes. Then throw into this mix the jolt of assimilating an explosive pace of urbanized migration and transiency; an increasingly permissive, materialistic, violent and instantgratification-addicted society; and a culture where the authority of teachers is casually questioned by students, parents and the ACLU alike. It spells an uphill battle. see Letters page 19A


MAY 18, 2012

Letters from page 18A Not to mention yearly pink slips and the No Child Left Behind pressures of test mania; nor the difficulty of doing all of this in a state where classroom size and the staffing ratio of counselors, nurses, psychologists and librarians scrapes the very national bottom. Tough gig? I say! On Tuesday, May 8, which is the California Day of the Teacher, we thanked these unsung heroes and heroines for what they do. Let’s remember that a teacher in teaching our son teaches our son’s son, that his or her influence has no end but ripples to the shores of eternity. Walter Ruehlig Antioch

Thanks, Walkathon warriors Editor: Antioch Charter Academy II families would like to thank everyone that made our first Walkathon/Silent Auction a huge success. All proceeds from the fundraiser directly support the kids, either through improved technology and classroom materials or enhanced science/math/music programs, etc. In addition to raising much-needed funds, our K-6 kids had a fun afternoon of exercise on a sundrenched April 1. Every community’s future lies in its youth, and their personal growth is dependent on a good school system that offers a safe and nurturing learning environment – we have that at ACA II and we start out by thanking all the teachers and administrative staff for their selfless daily contributions. Secondly, we are extremely grateful for the generosity that our community demonstrated, especially in these tough economic times, and we sincerely thank everyone who contributed by pledging money, donating raffle/silent auction prizes, food or water on the day of the event. We strongly recommend you support the following local businesses for their commitment to our school and belief in our community as a whole: GWF Power Systems; Antioch Lone Tree Dental; Bagel Street Cafe; Barnes & Noble; Bed Bath & Beyond; Big 5 Corp.; Black Bear Diner, Oakley; Brentwood Fine Meats; Celia’s Mexican Restaurant; Chili’s Grill & Bar, Antioch; Contra Costa County Fairgrounds; Costco; Curves; Dancers Elite; Deer Ridge Golf Club; Delta Bowl; Delta Water; Dr. Kristin Mattingly; the Dubitsky family; Gymboree; In-N-Out Burger; Joni Malfitano, Salon Vitor; Julie Huff – Certified Massage Therapist; Mimi’s; Panda Express; Paradise Skate; Rave Motion Pictures; Rick’s on Second; Roddy Ranch Golf Club; Safeway; Schwinn City – The Bicycle Shop; Shadow Lakes Golf Club; Skipolini’s Pizza; Stick-It Gymnastics; State Farm (Blue Rock Center); Sutter Delta Medical Center; Tao San Jin, Slatten Ranch; Target, Slatten Ranch; Trader Joe’s; and Winco Foods, Inc. Lastly, it would not have been possible without all the dedicated parent volunteers who enthusiastically assisted with setting up the walking course, marking the children’s lap cards and cheering them on, in addition to many other necessary behind-the-scenes tasks.

So when Gehringer Elementary second-grader Wesley Pullmann got his Flat Stanley assignment, the 9-year old didn’t send Stanley to the usual places – Grandma’s house, AT&T Park or Disneyland. No, Wesley set his sights much higher. He addressed his Stanley to the residents of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in our nation’s capital. “My dad thought of the idea first,” said Wesley of Stanley’s coastal postal trip to the White House. “And I liked the idea so I sent him. My sister didn’t really think I would hear back and I didn’t think I would either – but we got surprised.” And how. “Dear Wesley,” wrote First Lady Michelle Obama. “Our family always enjoys having visitors to the White House. I am pleased to report that Stanley worked hard, listened carefully and had a lot of fun exploring the house and meeting new people … He even got an affectionate lick from our dog Bo.”

MAY 18, 2012

“It was very exciting,” said Shannon, Wesley’s mom, of the illustrious inscription. “My thought was that he probably wasn’t going to hear anything back, so it was very, very nice when he did. It was a nice lesson for him have.” Wesley’s correspondence with the Obamas included an autographed photo of the First Family, a separate picture of Mrs. Obama and First Dog Bo and a letter describing Stanley’s adventures during his stay in Washington, D.C. “Flat Stanley showed up to the White House ready to learn with a smile on his face, and I hope that you bring that same energy to your classrooms and homes each day,” wrote Mrs. Obama. “Remember, with the right attitude and enough hard work, you can reach all of your dreams! Thanks again for sending Flat Stanley to visit the White House.” For Wesley, the pleasure was all his. “It was fun. I’m glad they wrote back.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

eter Sagan leads a pack of cyclists during Stage 3 of the Amgen Tour of California, which rolled through East County on Tuesday via Marsh Creek Road and Camino Diablo. The Slovakia native crossed the finish line first in Livermore. Attracting some of the best cyclists in the world, the Amgen Tour of California starts in Santa Rosa and finishes in Beverly Hills. Several spectators gathered along the route to cheer the cyclists on.

After sweeping both the boys and the girls swimming titles at the Bay Valley Athletic League Championship meet, Heritage is taking aim on placing some athletes in state at the upcoming North Coast Section meet. At the end of the regular season, the BVAL standings for the boys and girls mirror each other: Heritage took the top spot, followed by Deer Valley, Freedom, Liberty, Antioch and Pittsburg. The Patriots also claimed junior varsity titles in both the boys and girls standings. “It was pretty impressive,” Heritage head coach Craig Carson said about the BVAL Championships. “We had a tremendous amount of best times ever. Most of them did their best times of the season. They peaked quite well.” At the BVAL meet last weekend at Heritage, Patriots sophomore swimmer Stephanie Vosicka earned victories in the 200- and 500yard freestyle races, helping Heritage win a league title. Other two-event winners included the Patriots’ Ryan Barsanti (100 and 200 free-

style), Walker Thaning (100 backstroke, 100 butterfly) and Haley Rose Love (50 and 100 freestyle). Deer Valley’s Stanley Wu also placed first in the 200-yard individual medley and 100-yard breaststroke. An overwhelming amount of events were won by Heritage. Athletes such as Walker Thaning, Ryan Barsanti, Carter Haines, Zayd Othman, Ty Elder, Haley Rose Love, Madison Applegate, Rachel Allison and Erica Knudsen delivered strong performances. Freedom earned key victories at BVAL from Sierra MacIntyre (200 individual medley) and the 200-yard freestyle relay team, comprising MacIntyre, Emily Pels, Emily To’o and Emily Harris. The Patriots qualified six relay teams in this weekend’s NCS meet, and several other athletes will be competing individually. Barsanti earned a No. 5 seed in the boys 200-yard freestyle race and a No. 9 seed in the 500-yard freestyle, Love a No. 2 seed in the girls 50-yard freestyle, Travis Cook a No. 9 seed in the onemeter diving competition and Applegate a No. 6 seed in the 100-yard butterfly. Love and Applegate are seeded No. 4 see Locals page 23A

Heritage dominates league track meet by Kyle Szymanski Correspondent The Heritage boys and girls track and field teams entered the Bay Valley Athletic League Championships Saturday at Deer Valley High as the favorites to take home league titles. From start to finish, the Patriots didn’t disappoint. The boys team finished first in seven events, amassing 175 points to capture its fourth consecutive league title. The girls notched 139.5 points, finishing first in three events to secure their own league title. The Pittsburg girls and boys teams both finished second, earning victories in the girls 800 and 1600 meters, 300-meter hurdles, 400-meter relay and pole vault competition. The top six competitors in each of the meet’s 16 events will compete Saturday at the North Coast Section Tri-Valley Meet, held at Granada High in Livermore. The Patriots were led by two-event winners sophomore Frank Kurtz (200 and 400 meters) and senior Clifford Obodo (110-meter hurdles and high jump). Sophomores Zoey Millington (high jump), Sydney Berry (long jump), senior Kyle Thacker (discus), the 100-meter relay girls team, the 100-meter relay boys team and the 400-meter relay boys team also brought home

victories for Heritage. Freedom freshman Madison LaPierre added an element of excitement to the meet when she unexpectedly won the 400 meters just 10 hours after she competed in a daylong dance competition. The Freedom girls team finished fourth and the boys fifth. LaPierre later helped her 400-meter relay teammates Vanessa Espinoza, sophomore Sydney Gibbs and junior Mariah Walker to a second-place finish. Juniors Lisa Tilcock and Joey Fajardo picked up the only other two victories for the Falcons when they swept the 3200-meter races. “We had some surprises, so we’re really happy about that,” said Freedom head coach Glenn Briggs. “We as coaches knew they had the talent, and they finally put it together for the meet today.” The Deer Valley boys team was in contention for second place all day, but was edged out by Pittsburg 80-75. Senior Shawn Simms led the Wolverines boys team with wins in the long jump and 100 meters. Sophomore Nsimba Webster’s leap of 44 feet, 10 inches in the triple jump and LaVelle Hamlin’s time of 41.97 seconds in the 300-meter hurdles were also good enough for first place. see Meet page 23A

Zeroes lead to Heritage league title DV golf run by Michael Dixon

ends at NCS

Correspondent The last time a team other than the Freedom Falcons won a Bay Valley Athletic League softball title, the oldest girls on the current team were in the early stages of elementary school and Heritage High School didn’t even exist. That era is over. When the North Coast Section playoffs begin, the once-upstart Heritage Patriots will enter as league champions. While the Patriots are well-rounded, their league title can be summed up by a simple fact: If opponents can’t score, they can’t win. Entering Thursday’s league finale at Deer Valley, Heritage and senior pitcher Lisa Rodrigues hadn’t allowed a single run to a league foe, which accounts for the team’s 9-0 record in BVAL play. “We’ve all been pulling toward the same goal and coming together as a team,” Rodrigues said. “Even outside, we hang out together, so we’ve really come together as a family.” The Patriots aren’t new to success. They shared the league title with Freedom last year, and while the Falcons won the tiebreaker, Heritage did manage to defeat them in the playoffs. Despite the playoff win in 2011, bringing the league title home was foremost in the minds of the Patriots entering the season. “It’s been 11 years – I’ve been counting,” said head coach Ron Rivers. “I think we’ve grown up. We’ve grown up; worked hard.

Heritage ace Lisa Rodrigues unleashes a pitch to an Antioch batter.

Even in this game (a 14-0 win over Liberty), I had to remind myself: hey, you’re up by 10. Get some other people in. The whole goal all year long was just focusing in on it.” Over the last few years, the Patriots have played the Falcons tough, often winning the first game between the two teams. But inevitably, Freedom would answer by winning the second game, which not only evened the season series, but locked up the tiebreaker. This year was different. True to form, Heritage did win the first meeting between the two teams, 5-0 at home. But when the Patriots and Falcons met again at Freedom the following month, there was no Patriots’ letdown, as they completed the season sweep with a 2-0 win, effectively locking the league title up in the process.

“We came out really focused that whole week,” said catcher and leadoff hitter Malia Rivers. “We were working hard in practice. Everyone was doing what they were supposed to be doing. We were just saying that this was our year.” Heritage takes its next step in the North Coast Section playoffs. The Patriots are hoping for a No. 2 seed, but that will be decided on Sunday. Regardless of their seeding, the Patriots know they have a long run in them. “We have to practice really hard and play really hard together, like we don’t want to give up. We want to go all the way,” junior first baseman Ali Ramirez said. “We have to step it up at practice and the games. No matter who it is, we need to play like it’s the last game and give it our all.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

After a fourth consecutive year of holding the Bay Valley Athletic League golf title, Deer Valley saw its successful season end Monday at the North Coast Section Tournament of Champions. The last BVAL team standing, the Wolverines delivered a competitive performance. Senior Jaskaran Sihota, who will attend Cal State Stanislaus next year, missed making the cut for the NorCal Championships by only a few strokes. The top four individuals at the NCS meet advanced – the fourthplace golfer was Zach Smith of Amador Valley, who shot a 74 at Castlewood Country Club in Pleasanton. Sihota carded a 77 on the day. Robert Riel finished with an 83 for Deer Valley, Michael Uy an 87, Adam Sunga an 88 and Zach Dupuis a 90. Foothill claimed the overall team title, Dublin placing second and San Ramon Valley third. Nick Rodgers of Montgomery shot a 72 to earn the top spot among individuals. Behind him were Jack Atwater of Branson and Justin Paglia of De La Salle, who each carded 73.

High school stars start college futures A soccer star and one of the North Coast Section’s top wrestlers recently made their college choices official. Last week, Heritage soccer player Nick Krahnke signed his letter of intent to attend Menlo College. Krahnke this past season earned first-team all-Bay Valley Athletic League honors and has also been an asset to the East Diablo Youth Soccer League Impact program.

Krahnke chose Menlo College for its academics and strong soccer program. He’ll play center midfielder for the Oaks and study business management. Earlier this week, Freedom wrestler Roman Garcia signed on with Grand Canyon University in Arizona. Garcia placed sixth in the 126-pound bracket at the NCS tournament this season and is a two-time defending BVAL champion.

Garcia, who has been wrestling since he was 6, set his sights on Arizona as an optimal setting for college. He felt right at home when he visited Grand Canyon University, and plans to study communications and digital media. Both Krahnke and Garcia said they’re excited to branch out and start their new lives as college studentathletes.

Tiles from page 1A the military. Albro liked the idea so much that she ordered a second tile for her brother David Sheals, also a Marine, who currently lives in Sonoma County. “I thought it would be a nice gesture for my brother,” said Albro. “He’s such a great guy and has done so much for everyone. His tile will be side by side with my husband’s, so I’m happy about that.” Debra Galey’s uncle Don Wilkins was a Navy veteran and a Pearl Harbor survivor. When he passed away six months ago at the age of 91, Galey began searching for a way to commemorate her uncle and heard about the tile program. “I thought: this is it,” said Galey. “What a great way to honor him. My aunt is thrilled and I’m so glad they have a program like this for us to remember him.” Natalie Dimitri got the same idea when she learned of the city’s memorial tile program. Dimitri’s father, longtime Brentwood resident and businessman Larry Lindsay, was an Army paratrooper who served three tours in Vietnam. Lindsay passed away last September at the age of 67.

“I knew right away that this would be something nice to do for him,” said Dimitri of the tile program. “The reason my sisters and brother and I decided to this was because he was really proud of the time he spent in the military. He was a hero to many and he was our hero. He raised us all to be good little soldiers, and even though he wasn’t one to appreciate seeing his name everywhere, I know he would appreciate the sentiment behind this.” Currently two of the three planned memorial phases of the Veterans Park are complete. The third and final portion will be a quiet and contemplative area in the northwest corner of the park featuring white granite blocks, benches and shade trees. The city is working in conjunction with local veterans groups to raise $140,000 to complete the project. The tile project is part of the fundraising effort. Tiles are still available for purchase. The donation amount is $100 per line. For more information and details on the program, call the Parks and Recreation office at 925-516-5444. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Members of the Discovery Bay Running Club, above, are training to participate in the club’s first Spring Run next month.

Club from page 1A Emma Lenfest, 9, admits the club can be daunting. “It’s harder than I thought it would be,” she said. “But I like that I’m getting exercise.” Kasey Gunderson, 9, is a more a seasoned runner, having participated in competitions prior to joining the DB club. “I’ve run races before, so this isn’t that hard,” he said. “And I have lots of friends out here, so it’s fun.” On a fairly mild day last week, students made their way around the track; some sprinting, some jogging and others

walking, but all making the effort. With thumbs raised as they came around the track and cries of “I’m tired” and “this is awesome,” it’s clear that Healy’s efforts have begun to pay off. “I think my hope is that they’ll find their ‘thing’ through all this and maybe it will be running,” she said. “Everyone needs a ‘thing,’ and for some, running will be it.” For more information on the club or the upcoming Spring Run, call Discovery Bay Elementary School at 925-634-2159.

able time and effort, Hailey enjoys the 4-H experience, which she shares with her sister Heidi, 9. Like her sister, Heidi is involved in the Brentwood 4-H sewing group. She also raises rabbits and plans to show her bunny Paprika at fair. At the ripe age of 9, Heidi is a 4-H veteran with four years of experience. Last month she impressed judges at the County Fashion Revue with her hot-pink animal print skirt, which she sewed herself. She even made a matching skirt for her American Girl doll, which accompanied her on the runway. “I like 4-H because you learn a lot,� Heidi said. “It’s really fun. I like all of the time with the animals, but I like to learn new things and be with my friends.� While the Call sisters prefer horses and rabbits, Ian Lasher, 15, is all about sheep. His flock currently boasts 12 sheep and one ram. He plans to showcase seven of the sheep at fair and take one sheep to auction. Even though 4-Hers often form a bond with their animals, selling their livestock can turn a handsome profit. Some 4-H animals are bred for showing, while others are

Preparing for fair East County is well represented in the 4-H community. Brentwood, Knightsen and Delta-Diablo (Antioch and Oakley) 4-H clubs comprise more than 200 participants. Not all 4-Hers participate in fair, but for many members, fair is the highlight of the 4-H experience. “Fair is my favorite time of year,� said Brentwood 4-Her Hailey Call, 14. “You work so hard on your projects, and fair gives you a chance to share your work with other 4-H members as well as the whole community.� Hailey has been in 4-H for four years. Since joining, she’s participated in cooking and sewing groups, trained a horse and raised a rabbit. This year she plans to show her horse, and preparations are in full swing. Bathing, clipping and primping her horse have become part of the regular training agenda. While it takes consider-

She modeled the dress at the County Fashion Revue last month and will enter it at the county fair.

raised to be taken to market. Sheep sell for about $5 a pound. Last year, Ian, a member of Knightsen 4-H, made $700 by selling a lamb at fair. That money, including other monetary awards he earned at fair, goes right back into his sheep operation, which he calls Lasher Ranch Sheep Breeding. “People don’t realize how much work goes into all this,� said Ian, who keeps his sheep on his grandmother’s ranch in Oakley. “I’m here twice a day to feed them, but a lot of hours go into traini n g . Then t h e re ’s the money side of things. I pay for almost all of this myself. I buy the sheep, I buy the feed, the medicine – whatever they need. This isn’t just a hobby. It’s a business.� Not too shabby for a freshman in high school. Ian recently bought a ram, which he plans to breed with his show sheep. He’ll keep some of the offspring and sell the others to 4-H members and other breeders. Like any business owner, Ian has faced setbacks. Last year, his prized ram was attacked and killed by dogs, which dug under a fence. The loss was hard

for Ian emotionally, b u t his mind quickly returned to his sheep operation and he began the search for a new ram he could mate with his sheep. He purchased one, which he named D.J., earlier this year and has been training it and preparing it for fair.


4-H from page 3B When he’s not taking care of his 4-H responsibilities, Ian is a member of the Liberty freshman volleyball team and Liberty Leadership. He’s also involved in many community service projects and hosts showmanship clinics to teach new 4-H members what it takes to succeed at fair.

Planning for the future Tufts University in Massachusetts conducted a study following approximately 7,000 4-Hers during a five-year period and determined that 4-H participants are more likely to succeed in school and life. The study found that 4-Hers are twice as likely than non-4-H members to advance to college, 41 percent less likely to engage in risky behavior such as drugs, alcohol and crime, and 25 percent more likely to participate in community service. While community service is a requirement for 4-H participants, the amount of service hours is up to each participant. Karli Blach, 14, completed more than 100 hours of community service last year and documented it in her 4-H record book. In recognition of her service, Karli received the Presidential Volunteer Service Award. “In Brentwood 4-H, we’re always involved in something,� Karli said. “We organize coat drives, we adopt families during the holidays, we participate in the Marsh Creek cleanup – there’s always a way to give back. And it’s not about getting a bunch of hours for your record book. It feels really good to make a difference in your community. It’s something I would want to do even

if I wasn’t a part of 4-H.� Cierra Provan, a former Knightsen 4-H member and this year’s Contra Costa County Fair Queen, has gained significant hands-on experience through the program, inspiring her to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. The Liberty senior is currently an intern at Brentwood Family Pet Care and plans to go to community college before transferring to a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine college, such as UC Davis, where she hopes to specialize in large animal veterinary care. Cierra, 17, who has been involved in 4-H for 10 years, considers herself lucky to have jump-started her career through 4-H. She encourages parents to take their children to a 4-H meeting to expose them to the program’s possibilities. “4-H is a great experience,� said Cierra. “There’s an activity for everyone. It’s a great way to make friends and become involved. You might find a new hobby or figure out what type of a career you want. 4-H allows young people to explore a lot of different areas while taking on leadership and community roles. It’s a rewarding experience that I would recommend to anyone.� To learn more about 4-H, visit the Contra Costa County Fair May 31 through June 3.

the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.
