Officials celebrate highway widening by Dave Roberts Staff Writer Good news for harried motorists: government officials converged at Loveridge Road Monday morning to make speeches and shovel dirt for photo-ops, celebrating the fact that the next phase of the widening of Highway 4 from Loveridge to Somersville roads will begin next month. Expected to take three years to complete, the $165 million Loveridge Project will widen the highway to four lanes in each direction, including one carpool lane. The widening will accommodate an eBART line down the highway median that will be constructed simultaneously. It also includes reconstruction of the Loveridge Road interchange and auxiliary lanes between the onand off-ramps. After a two-year delay in the highway widening due to the need to redesign it to accommodate a late decision to add the eBART line, the Loveridge Project is the first of five projects that will be under construction for the next 4½ years to widen the highway east to the Highway 4 Bypass. Congressman John Garamendi feels the pain of East County commuters because he regularly travels Highway 4 from his home in Elk Grove to his district office in Walnut Creek. “I love groundbreaking ceremonies, and I love this one because this is my way into the district,” he told the packed gathering under a large tent near the Loveridge

None of this happens without all of you that are here.” Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor, who is also chairman of the Contra Costa Transportation Authority and has spent many hours of his life slogging through the Highway 4 congestion, is delighted that the wid-

ened highway will improve access to his city. “My expression when I first ran for office in Brentwood: Once you’re in Brentwood, you can’t get out. Once you’re out of Brentwood, you can’t get back in,” said Taylor. “Hopefully, this project is going to change that. Every day we sit on the freeway – it’s tough counting those daisies. I did it for like 25 years on this commute. And no matter

what time I left, sometimes I was still late. “We do appreciate all the work that has gone into getting this done. This will affect Oakley, Antioch, Brentwood, Discovery Bay – a lot of commuters, a lot of people. Let’s move some dirt. This is good for our economy; this is good for jobs. This, as our vice president said – and I’ll leave one word out – this is a big deal. And I’m very happy to be part of that big deal.” After Loveridge, the next phase of the highway widening reconfigures the Somersville Road interchange and widens the road to just west of Contra Loma Boulevard. The construction bids for that phase will be advertised this summer, and construction is expected to start later this year. The Contra Loma/L Street segment of the widening is scheduled to begin next spring and continue through the winter of 2013. In addition to widening the highway to just west of Lone Tree Way, this project will eliminate the G Street on- and off-ramps. The Lone Tree Way/A Street segment, which is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2012 and conclude in the winter of 2014, will widen the highway to just west of Hillcrest Avenue. The final phase of the project focuses on the Hillcrest Avenue interchange area and widening the highway to the Bypass. It’s scheduled to begin in the summer of 2012 and conclude in the winter of 2014. The see Highway page 22A

Lunch is served at new Oakley address by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Loaves and Fishes of Contra Costa (LFCC) has been feeding the hungry in Oakley for more than eight years at St. Anthony Catholic Church, but now the program has a new home. Due to a renovation project at St. Anthony, Loaves and Fishes needed a new venue for its Oakley operation. The Redman Pocahontas Hall, also in Oakley, seemed like an ideal fit, according to LFCC Operations Manager Carol Babcock. “As the church was being renovated, we began to look for a new location, and this hall is absolutely wonderful,” Babcock said. “The members of the hall have been so gracious to invite us here to serve the hungry each week, and this facility is gorgeous. We love it here, and so do our guests.” LFCC is run by community volunteers and donations from Safeway, Lucky, Trader Joe’s, Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, and The Cheesecake Factory. LFCC doesn’t offer scraps and stale bread. Every Monday through Friday, the program offers people warm, nutritious meals complete with fruit salad, bread, green salad, dessert and an entrée such as chicken curry, Mexican casserole or creamy pasta primavera with chicken. “We pride ourselves in serving hot, nutritious meals five days a week,” Babcock said. “We serve everyone, but the jobless,

We don’t ask for identification or proof of residence. We don’t discriminate. We welcome everyone. “And for many of our guests, this may be the only warm meal they have all day, so guests are welcome to seconds and thirds. It’s all-you-can-eat from 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Guest can’t take the leftovers home, but we do offer a ‘free’ table which is stocked with breads, muffins, bagels, cookies and any other overflow from the

kitchen that didn’t appear on the serving table. People are welcome to take as much as they need. We don’t limit them or judge them. We just want to keep people from going hungry.” Oakley LFCC Manager Thurston Brice said that despite announcements of the program’s relocation, only about 40 percent of the St. Anthony regulars have followed the program to Main Street. “We average about 30 to 40 people each day, but a lot of our regulars haven’t followed us yet,” Brice said. “It could be

a transportation issue. St. Anthony’s was imbedded in the community, so a lot of people were able to walk to the church, but this new location is about two and a half miles away, so some people, especially the seniors, may not want to walk that far.” Babcock expects more guests in the next coming weeks since school is out for summer and children who get free lunches at school will need a place to go to fill that void. “We see a lot of children during the summer when school’s out,” Babcock said. “We see mothers bringing in their children because they have no way to provide a warm meal for their kids and they have nowhere else to go. But like I said, we don’t judge or discriminate. We just want to help.” Added Brice, “If you’re human, we’ll feed you. Race, gender, religion … that doesn’t matter here. We just want to make sure you have at least one warm meal today.” Redman Pocahontas Hall is located at 1403 Main St., next to Live Oak Church. The site is accessible through the Tri-Delta Transit Route 383 Oakley Loop. The kitchen is open from 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Monday through Friday. All meals are free. Those interested in volunteering to help prepare meals or serve food are invited to contact Volunteer Services Manager Rodger Jensen at 925-708-4257 or visit www.loavesfishescc.org.

La Paloma graduates fly toward future by Dave Roberts Staff Writer La Paloma High Principal Lorenzo Rodriguez began his speech at the June 3 graduation ceremony by discussing how the students had been transformed, but followed it with a slip that made it seem like nothing had changed after all. “Their hard work, determination and perseverance helped them attain their goal tonight. The faculty and staff have done a great job of molding these young men and women into students we are proud of,” he said. “You all started as young men and women, and leave today as young men and women.” As many in the audience at the Liberty Performing Arts Center started to laugh, Rodriguez smiled and said, “My bad. I’m going to rephrase that. You all started high school as young teens, and leave today as young men and women.” That was met with cheers and applause. He wrapped it up by saying, “After today you will enter into the next phase of your lives. Congratulations.” In his speech, Jerry Glenn, superintendent of the Liberty Union High School District, chose to celebrate two other groups in addition to the graduates assembled in several rows on stage. “The first is the staff members and management team at La Paloma,” he said. “They have dedicated their careers

I did my master’s degree on continuation schools. And I can assure you: I never ran into a staff anywhere else

as good as the one assembled here in our district.” The La Paloma teachers, staff and management stood and accepted the applause. “Secondly, there’s another important group sitting down here: and that’s the parents, the legal guardians, the aunts and uncles, grandmas who stepped in when

times were tough, and anyone else who helped bring these people to this stage tonight,” said Glenn, then asking them to stand and receive applause, the strongest of which came from the students. “Finally to the graduates: Your place on the stage is a very important milestone in your life,” said Glenn. “Even here at the start of the 21st century, over 25 percent of the students who began high school four years ago with these people as ninthgraders are not walking a stage somewhere in the state this month. There’s an infinite number of roads a young person can take after completing compulsory education. And by meeting here tonight and getting that diploma, a lot of doors to those potential paths open to these young people. “Where you go from here is truly up to you. But you’ve already shown you’ve got what it takes to get the job done, sometimes overcoming some tremendous obstacles. My only word of advice: Don’t let this time in high school get interrupted. Continue to study and learn in whatever you do, whether college or trade school or going in the military or just pick a career in some field. Continuing to learn and study and expand your mind is going to be the secret to your success. Keep that lifelong learning going. You can achieve your dreams. Go for it. Good luck, Class of 2010.” To view a list of graduates, visit www. thepress.net.

ANTI-DEFICIENCY RULES IN CA

Photo by Dave Roberts

Thomas Mitose is one of Independence High’s many success stories.

Independence gained by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

All high school students are eager to finally reach graduation day. But the students at Independence High might be more eager than most because they never wanted to be in high school in the first place – or at least not the usual high school where you can feel like just another seat in a crowded classroom. Independence is a little different. One student – Elena Myers, 16, of Discovery Bay – is currently one of the hottest properties in the world of

motorcycle racing. She had hoped to graduate at last week’s raucous ceremony in the packed Liberty High gym. But lately she has devoted more time to her career since recently becoming the first female motorcyclist to win a race in the 76-year history of American Motorcyclist Association Pro Racing. She’s now being called the Danica Patrick of motorcycles. Independence is “designed for people like Elena, people who do not fit into the regular 8-to-3 mold,” said science teacher Paul Lindeman in an see Independence page 8A

There is a website (that I won’t name, don’t want to give them any free press) promoting walking away from your home when you are underwater, and they make it sound so EASY, like a mulligan in golf. To paraphrase from their website, “California has laws which bar the lender by law from coming after the borrower for a deficiency judgment.” Time for a fact-check. Their statement about California law is mostly true, except they need to finish the thought. California Civil Code Section 580 does give some antideficiency protection, but it only applies to 1-4 unit residential properties, and it only applies in certain circumstances: [Sec. 580(b)] If the loan(s) were used to purchase the property, and they have never been refinanced. This is called “Purchase Money.” [Sec. 580(d)] If the lender forecloses through a Trustee’s Sale. (Doesn’t matter if loan is Purchase Money or Recourse.) So if the loan was in place when you bought the home, and/or your lender forecloses on it through a Trustee’s Sale, there is no

right for the lender to pursue you after for the deficiency. This means that if your loan has ever been refinanced, or if you put a 2nd loan on the property AFTER you bought it, then the anti-deficiency rules may not protect you. I can tell you that 80-90% of the people who walk through my doors have either refinanced their loan(s), or put a 2nd mortgage on after they bought the property. So, no, most of the time you can’t just “walk away.” However, the California Senate just approved a bill (SB 1178) that would add antideficiency status to loans that have been refinanced. The bill now heads to the Assembly, and then to the Governor. If you like this bill, please let your representatives know. I’ll update you if it passes. DISCLAIMER: I am not an attorney.

NECK PAIN AND PINCHED NERVES “I woke up yesterday morning with severe neck pain that radiates down my right arm to my hand and I can barely move my neck without producing the shooting arm pain.” Or, “…for the last few months, I’ve had this nagging pain in my neck and when I look up, my arm goes numb.” Or, “Every time I bend my head to the left, my left arm goes numb. I’ve noticed when I lift weights, I can only curl 15 lbs with my left arm compared to 35 lbs with the right.” These are common histories describing a classic “pinched nerve in the neck.” So, what is a “pinched nerve?” To answer this, let’s first look at what a “nerve” is. In the diagram to the left, the nerves come off the spinal cord. Those in the neck region go down the arm and those in the low back go down the legs. The spinal cord is the “highway” that brings information from the nerves in the arms, legs, trunk, etc., to the brain where information is processed. The bony spine houses and protects the spinal cord and skull protects the brain but there is no bony protection for the nerves. Nerves bring information to the brain allowing us to feel, taste, smell, see, and move our legs and arms to perform complex movements like dancing, running, gymnastics, and so on. Information is constantly going to and from the brain to allow us to function normally. The nerve can get “pinched” anywhere along its course, including the wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome), elbow (cubital tunnel syndrome), shoulder (thoracic outlet syndrome), and/or neck (herniated disk and/or arthritis). This results in a slowing down of information transmission to/from the brain and numbness, pain, throbbing, as well as weakness in strength can occur.

There are two types of conditions that commonly pinch nerves, which generally occur at different times of life – those with a herniated disk (younger > older patients) and those with arthritis (older > younger patients). A combination of the two conditions producing the pinching effect on the nerve can also occur making the diagnosis process a little trickier. The following diagram helps explain these conditions: The nerves exit the spine through holes that can be narrowed if the jelly central part of the disk herniates outward and into the nerve pushing it against the bone that makes up the hole through which it exits the spine. A “bone spur” (as shown in the diagram to the left, coming off the left facet joint) pushing into the nerve or the thickening of the ligaments that run inside the spinal canal (eg., ligamentum flavum) can also crowd these sensitive nerve structures and cause similar symptoms.

Both of these conditions are commonly treated by chiropractors. If you, a family member or a friend requires care, we sincerely appreciate the trust and confidence shown by choosing our service. We are proud that chiropractic care has consistently scored the highest level of satisfaction when compared to other forms of health care provision and look forward in serving you and your family presently and in the future.

Freedom Class of 2010 takes wing by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Political commentary and commencement ceremonies don’t typically go handin-hand, but at Freedom High School’s graduation last weekend, LUHSD Superintendent Jerry Glenn couldn’t resist the temptation. “I have a message for Sacramento,” Glenn told the audience. “And that is that there is nothing wrong with public education. I say just give us what we need in funding and support and get the heck out of our way.” Glenn’s comments were met with wild applause by an already enthusiastic crowd of friends, family and supporters assembled to celebrate Freedom High School’s graduating class of 2010. Freedom’s 12th gathering of graduates at Falcon Stadium was a celebration of speeches, well-wishers, flying beach balls and a colorful array of bouquets and balloons. But the real proclamation of the morning was a simple message of pride. “This is my first graduation as principal of Freedom High and I can tell you all that you have much to be proud of,” said Principal Erik Faulkner. “You are one of the highest performing schools in East County … and Freedom is a better place because of you. I am more than proud of this class.”

The Freedom High School class of 2010 listens to speakers during commencement ceremonies on Saturday, June 5. Valedictorian Trevor Pels is introduced to the audience by Principal Erik Faulkner. Salutatorians Samuel Carey and Elizabeth Franco echoed Faulkner, thanking their families, teachers and classmates for what Carey jokingly referred to as “Our emancipation from the jailhouse we call Freedom High … it’s finally over.” Franco was a little more sentimental. “We can look back on this day and not forget those who have meant so much to us during our high school lives,” she said. “and look forward to what lies ahead.”

Valedictorian Trevor Pel urged his fellow graduates to step outside their sphere of safety, take chances and be true to themselves. “In the end, I guess it’s the valedictorian’s job to look toward the future,” said Pel, who will attend Stanford in the fall. “So make it a great future … take out your student ID card and burn it. Take risks and don’t be afraid, ever, to be you.” Student speaker Leikin Poppino gave

an emotional speech to the student body, remembering the loss of classmate Aaron Griffin, who died in 2008. “Aaron always emphasized living life to the fullest,” said Poppino. “Let’s take that lesson and live our lives the best we can … make the most of your futures and know that we will always be the class of 2010.” To view a list of graduates, visit www. thepress.net.

Byron-Delta Lions honor local ‘Rudy’ by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

When Cecelia Kimber and her son emigrated from Africa seven years ago, the Discovery Bay resident hoped to give her only child a chance at a better life. “My son was born in Africa and I left with him to escape (the war) and that kind of life,” said Kimber. “And we came to America, where a person can be whatever they want to be. I have always told him that he must do his

best and work hard.” Last week, the fruits of Kimber’s labor began to pay off when 14-yearold Saint Peter –named for Kimber’s father Peter (the “Saint” added for good luck) – was presented with the inaugural Byron Delta Lions Club Rudy Award. The Rudy Award – based on the true story of Notre Dame football player Rudy Ruettiger, who overcame numerous academic and physical obstacles see Lions page 20A

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Mirabilis Jalapa Otherwise known as the four o’clock flower tends to open later in the afternoon (hence the name) while at the same time omitting a sweet-smelling fragrance. And although this flower might not be your favorite or even anything you have in your garden, since 1994 the flower has played a huge role in the life’s of those affected by cancer…being considered a “symbol of hope” for survivors in both the United States and over 100 countries world-wide. With spring 2010 playing host to both Brentwood and Antioch/ Pittsburg’s respective Relay for Life events why not take a few minutes and smell the “purple jasmine”. On June 12-13 in Brentwood, and June 26-27 in Antioch/Pittsburg, teams of 8-15 people will “paint the town purple” and participate in a 24 hour event with at least one team member on the track at all times – because cancer never sleeps – in what has become the American Cancer Society’s single largest activity. Dating back to 1985 and Dr. Gordon Klatt’s Tacoma Washington grassroots effort, Relay for Life has evolved into this nation’s largest fundraising event of any kind, raising over 400 million dollars in 2009! Brentwood alone helped to raise $307,657 in funds during the 24 hour event and is looking to make it an even $325,000.00 in 2010. And while the money donated to the

1946 founded American Cancer Society helps with patient support, decease prevention/risk reduction, and detection/ treatment, it is truly the experience itself that communities as a whole remember. Often referred to as “24 hours that you’ll never forget” Relay for Life is much more than the money - both survivors and participants alike are able to draw strength from one another, while all coming together to help fight back against cancer. Celebrate. Remember. Fight back is the motto for the individuals and families involved during this emotional 24 hour fund raiser. I am honored to say this year I will be participating through team Brentwood Rotary, and as such welcome any questions regarding Relay for Life or the American Cancer Society in my inbox at tfreymortgages@yahoo.com. While I always try to keep the community updated on the latest real estate happenings, sometimes we all have to put ourselves to the side, smell the Mirabilis Jalapa, and realize there are larger things out there. Cancer does not know we are in a recession and does not care that these are tough economic times. As always, I welcome all questions and or concerns pertaining to real estate lending on my cell phone, 925.726.1444, or via email, tfreymortgages@yahoo.com. – Advertisement

Poetry plaques poised for placement The Brentwood Arts Commission will unveil its latest public artwork in a ceremony set for Tuesday, June 15 from 10 to 10:30 a.m. at Veterans Park, 3841 Balfour Road. Artist Eric Powell designed and fabricated a stainless steel poetry plaque display for the winners of the “critter” poetry contest. Five metal sculptural displays are anchored securely into the ground. Each display integrates two plaques, each with an engraved poem by the poetry winners in their own written script.

Each will also feature a three-dimensional sculpture of the animal on the top middle platform between the poem plaques. The displays are made of darkened stainless steel to deter the theft and vandalism suffered after the original bronze versions of the sculptures were installed. Five surveillance cameras have also been installed and will record 24/7. For more information, call the Parks and Recreation Department at 925-516-5444.

Liberty grads turn the tassels by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Graduation is an exciting time for young adults as they close the chapter of their school days and move into a world of endless possibility. Some graduates celebrate this milestone by decorating their mortarboards or wearing leis of colorful flowers, candy or delicately folded dollar bills, but some members of Liberty High School’s Class of 2010 decided to celebrate with tortillas. “Tortillas!” a student cheered as he tossed flecks of tortillas into the air like confetti. Others used the tortillas as Frisbees, while other students preferred to launch beach balls or toss water balloons – one last chance to leave their mark on Liberty. Now that the fun is over, graduates are left to contemplate the next step in the journey of life. But before they left high school, some of their peers offered words of encouragement and advice before the ceremonial turning of the tassels. Co-valedictorian Jacqueline Schindler reflected on her time in high school and what makes the Class of 2010’s generation unique, but she said while it might be scary to move into the unknown of the future, it’s important to remember that high school provides graduates with the tools to build a strong foundation once they get out into the real world. Quoting Abraham Lincoln, Schindler reminded her peers: “The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time.”

Liberty High School’s Class of 2010 got creative with cap designs, bidding a fond farewell to high school. Jessica Guerrero, right, races to catch up with her friends following the Liberty High School Class of 2010 graduation ceremony. Liberty’s other co-valedictorian, Darya Zmachynskaya, opted to challenge her peers rather than offer sage words of wisdom. Instead of seeking fame and fortune, Zmachynskaya urged her classmates to become active in the community. “Go change someone’s life. Go help someone in a worse situation than you. And don’t tell me about your hard life. We’ve all had it hard, but there is always someone less fortunate.” Salutatorian Stacy Hamby said she wished her contribution could have been an interpretive dance, but to be more politically

correct, she dished out advice that the Class of 2010 has known for years, such as “Look both ways before you cross the street” and “Never take candy from strangers – you don’t know where it’s been.” She told her classmates that if the simple advice they’d received as children helped them get this far in life, and if they continue to use common sense and make good decisions, the future is going to be alright. Felix Navarro, who was joined by Elizabeth Day for the senior speaker honor, advised his classmates not to watch life pass you by; instead, follow your heart and fight for what

you want. “Just remember that the architect of your destiny is yourself. It is up to you to make your own trail.” Before the Class of 2010 received diplomas, Jenny Lind Vocal Recipient Jake Tickner, along with the help of some of his friends, serenaded the crowd with a rendition of Jason Mraz’s “Make it Mine,” taking the audience on a trip to the gratitude café, where dreams will soon become reality as they march into the next chapter of their lives.

Patriot grads grow Heritage of their own by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

As the newest school in the Liberty Union High School District, it’s only natural that the traditions surrounding graduation at Heritage High School are still taking shape. It follows, then, that last weekend’s commencement contained a few unexpected elements as more than 450 students collected their diplomas and moved eagerly into the future. There were also traditional elements: The pomp and ceremony, advice from Principal Andy Parsons to “Get up when you fall, and then move on,” and dozens of graduates bedecked with laurels signifying their exceptional scholastic achievements. There was the changing of tassels, the flinging of mortarboards (as well as a few beach balls and tortillas) and the stands packed to overflowing with proud family members. But there was plenty of off-beat activity as well. It began near the beginning of the ceremony with the arrival of thousands of tiny, airborne spiders that had students and audience members flailing about and brushing each other off. Salutatorian Fasiha Khan, who said it was her responsibility to provide some advice to the class, drew laughter and applause when she offered “Never accept chocolate from a little kid” – if the kid also happened to have a dog. Senior Class President Lauren Howard announced that the class gift, rather than selfaggrandizing (as many such gifts are) would be practical: money to improve the parking lot, and cash donations for future graduating

classes. Crossing her forearms in the shape of the Roman numeral “X” (which stands for “10”) she drew cheers by telling her peers that “You will always be X-rated.” Senior Spokesperson Brian Kiar drew perhaps the loudest cheer with the proud statement that, for this one day, “The world truly revolves around us.” Fittingly for this technological age, he added that life was not like a DVD. “There is only ‘play,’” he said. “There is no rewind, fast-forward, or even chapter selection.” But perhaps the most lasting of the unique aspects of the day was the debut of the school’s new alma mater, featuring text by Elysia Cook and Roxanne Hopkins, and music by Ross Bronzan:

Heritage Valedictorian Danielle Hicks, left, addresses her classmates during the school’s graduation ceremony Saturday. Above, students rock to the Natasha Beddingfield song “Unwritten” performed by Alexa Visconti. Hail Heritage Hail to Heritage The vibrant blue and gold And all the memories That have yet to be told The steps we climbed each day To end up where we are The lessons on the way Are what brought us this far And from the very start To graduation day The pride stays in our hearts The goals that we pursue

Reflect our time spent here Our love for Heritage Will always remain true According to Cook, “The lines ‘The steps we climbed each day/to end up where we are’ is a metaphor for the challenges people go through to complete high school, as well as a literal representation of the many flights of stairs at Heritage. The song also serves to express pride for Heritage – our school is very accomplished after only five years of existence, and we have some of the best test scores, sport teams and educational opportunities in the area.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Transparency needed when asking for tax hike Antioch is in a pickle. After slashing $11 million from last year’s budget, resulting in layoffs, service cuts, closure of City Hall on Fridays and 73 positions remaining unfilled – including 20 police officer positions – city officials are now looking at cutting millions of dollars more in the coming year. The casualties have included funding for the Fourth of July fesDITORIAL tivities, which have been canceled, the city’s support for the Delta Blues Festival, which may go on without that support, support for operating the Antioch Historical Society Museum and limited arts funding, which may close the Lynn House Gallery in January. With city officials considering City Manager Jim Jakel’s “doomsday scenario” of providing only the city services mandated by law, there is the potential for cuts in funding for the animal shelter, recreation programs, Prewett Water Park

E

and elimination of the Holiday DeLites and Veteran’s Day parades, among other events. City Hall is likely to continue to remain closed on Fridays. Because most of the General Fund budget goes for police and public works, there is potential for further cuts in those areas as well, which could affect public safety and lead to deterioration of streets and parks. The City Council is, understandably, reluctant to make such drastic cuts affecting the quality of life in Antioch. So the council members are discussing the possibility of asking residents to support a tax hike. A survey might be conducted to determine residents’ support for a range of tax hikes, based on the level of city services they would provide. A tax hike might be necessary, and residents might be willing to support some level of extra taxation, particularly if it fills the 20 vacant police officer positions. But residents have already been hit hard by the recession, by last year’s state tax hike and by a recent city trash

LETTERS Cavalcade of ominous communiqués Editor: As a senior citizen, most of my equity being in my home, it’s been a discouraging month. Despite a huge drop in property value, my mortgage company informed me I have a shortage in my escrow account and my monthly payment was being increased. Scrutinizing my 2009-10 tax bill, which arrived at the same time, I discovered the trigger for my increased taxes; i.e., an increase in the Delta Diablo sewer charge, an increase in the East Bay Regional Park bond fee, and the Antioch school district facilities improvement bond (which did not exempt senior citizens, although six local school bond measures in other districts did). Audaciously, the AUSD board is again discussing a new district parcel tax measure for the November ballot. I also received notification in the mail from Allied Waste, which increased rates for 64- and 96-gallon can pickup, a postcard from Delta Diablo Sanitation District informing me about a June 9 public hearing to discuss an increase in sewer service charges for tax year 2010-11, and a postcard from the

TO THE

City of Antioch in regard to a June 22 hearing to discuss potential water and sewer rate increases. (Council has already had discussion about a special property tax to be placed on a future ballot, although no hearing has been held in this regard.) To top it all off, on Sunday, May 23 I spotted in the newspaper a legal announcement from the Contra Costa Transportation Authority inviting the public to a workshop in regard to placing a local vehicle registration fee on the Nov. 2 ballot. Note the workshop was being held on May 24, the day after I spotted the published notification. Residents not only need to keep an eye on what’s going on in Washington, D.C. and in Sacramento; they need to watch what’s going on in our own backyard. I won’t be voting in favor of any new fee or tax measures nor will I vote for any legislator, supervisor, council or board member who approves any new taxes or fees. Barbara Zivica Antioch

DB community center saga revisited Editor: For approximately 12 years the Hofmann Company (the developers of DB) have been obligated by a Condition of Approval to provide land and a portion of the building cost for a community center to be located within the town of DB. Considering the comparatively low development fees to build in DB and minimal developer requirements for infrastructure, in my opinion, Hoffmann was let off easy. Unfortunately, the town of DB has never been able to execute its responsibilities to make the community center a reality. The last time the DBCSD’s Community Center Committee met publicly was at least 18 months ago. Since that time there have been non-public meetings and through a non-direct disclosure it was learned that Hofmann is proposing to in

rate hike on the large containers that is transferring an extra $1 million into city coffers over the next two years. And too many Antioch residents remain unemployed and are struggling to hold onto their homes. Before residents are asked to make an additional sacrifice, they should know exactly where their money would be going. To provide full transparency, city officials should post on the city Web site a listing of the salary and benefits for each city position (including an itemization of the cost of each benefit) from top management down. There has been justifiable concern from many in the private sector that public sector employees’ salary/benefit packages have become overly generous, especially in comparison with what most employees receive outside of government. If city officials do not provide that openness and transparency, residents might justifiably wonder what they are hiding and why, and that’s a tough climate in which to ask for more.

some way make the existing office building at 1520 Discovery Bay Blvd. the community center. This intent was only discovered because it was noted on a drawing that was submitted and then withdrawn, detailing a proposal for high-density housing tract to be built by Hofmann on vacant land in the center of DB. For several months public inquiries have been made into why all the secrecy surrounding the topic of a DB community center. A common answer supplied by the CSD is that it is a “county issue.” Yet when the county was asked if it had done the necessary due diligence to determine the financial feasibility of BD operating a community center, the response was that is was not a county responsibility. At this time I am asking all involved (Hofmann, the county, the DBCSD) to bring the issue of a DB community center completely out into the open and to: • Perform the proper level of due diligence to determine the financial feasibility so to not saddle the town with an ongoing financial obligation disproportionate to its utility. • Not allow this to become a quid pro quo whereby Hofmann is allowed to use any aspect of the existing obligation to obtain approval for a new housing tract in the center of DB. • Establish a new and legitimate community center steering committee that includes individuals from the community that have real world experience that would aid this project. • Determine and state publicly what aspects of this project are town responsibilities and which are county responsibilities. This quest for a new community center should not become just a new town office building that will foster typical government sprawl. This entire matter is supposed to be on the next CSD agenda and I would suggest

all interested persons attend Wednesday June 16 at 7 p.m. at the town office. Jeff Barber Discovery Bay

Oakley soldier traveled The Pathway Home Editor: The Pathway Home, a residential treatment program for our nation’s “New Warriors” returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, and who suffer from PTSD and traumatic brain injury, has an important connection to Oakley. Billy Hyder, a former resident of Oakley, went through the half-year program at Pathway after serving in Iraq with the National Guard, and he puts it this way: “Pathway saved my life!” This is a refrain that many other servicemen who have graduated from this program, besides Hyder, have said of The Pathway Home. Pathway is an independent, privatelyfunded, nonprofit organization that has treated nearly 200 warriors from around the country using innovative, state-of-the-art techniques that incorporate interaction with the surrounding community. But for The Pathway Home to continue doing its job, it needs the support of communities like Oakley – and of cities and towns all across the United States. Pathway’s operation depends on private donations to fund the clinical staff and treatment programs, and making our wounded warriors whole again is everyone’s responsibility. Donations can be made through the official Web site, www.thepathwayhome.org, where more information about the program can also be found. Donations by check can be made out to and mailed to The Pathway Home, P.O. Box 3930, Yountville, CA 94599. John Dunbar Chairperson, The Pathway Home Napa Valley Advisory Council

Animal magnetism a polarizing subject Call me Dr. Doolittle. For some odd reason our house has become a magnet for wayward pets. I have enough pets. They outnumber my five children: three cats, one dog, two parakeets, one fish and a partridge in a pear tree. HANGIN’ IN They are all cute, sometimes, but the HERE last thing I need is another animal. Apparently fate has other plans for me. My daughter Mary came home with her boyfriend VICKI T.J. two weeks MCKENNA ago on a cold and windy night. A big storm was coming in. They were in the garage for a long time and I finally peeked in to see what was going on, not wishing to interrupt any heavy petting. Petting was going on, but not the kind I expected. They had found a brown kitten cowering under our old van parked outside. It was a female, about three months old and very hungry. It ate an entire bowl of food, lapped down half a bowl of water, spied our litter box a few feet away and promptly hopped in and made a donation. I immediately began protesting what I knew would be a plea to keep it. “No, Mary. No more pets!” I said firmly. The kitten purred loudly, weaving her skinny little body between all of our legs, really pouring on the charm. I offered an open door to our backyard, hoping she might leave and head home after her rest stop, but instead she spotted our cat door and scurried through it into our house, sending our dog, Napoleon into a psychotic frenzy. This attracted my husband’s attention, who, up until this point had no idea what we were doing in the garage. He saw the kitten but didn’t say a thing. Perhaps the poor man has finally been beaten down. The kids and animals just keep multiplying around here, so I think he’s just given up. Mary said good-bye to T.J., but not before I begged him to take the kitten home with him. He told me we should wait a couple of days in case the owner came looking for her. No one came looking for her, even though Mary posted signs all around the neighborhood. I now believe she was dumped! What kind of person abandons a defenseless little kitten on the street on a stormy night? I guess she was meant to join our family because all the animals in the house accepted Mu-Shu immediately. Yes, I named her after a Chinese entrée. Hey, I was hungry when I named her! She cuddled with all the kids, used the litter box faithfully and entertained us all with her spastic kitten behavior. A few days later I rounded the

T

corner of our street to see a golden retriever wandering around the neighborhood. He looked lost but happy. Golden retrievers always look like they’re smiling, don’t they? I slowed down to see if he had a collar. A woman outside her house said he’d been hanging around all day. She called the phone number on his tag but it was disconnected. I couldn’t believe it. Could someone have dumped him, too? What is the world coming to? My 7-year-old daughter fell in love with him instantly. “Oh no,

Haley! We are not keeping this dog!” “But Mom! We can’t leave him on the street!” I stopped my truck in the middle of the street and opened the passenger door. He hopped right in! He sat there like a kid in the back seat smiling at us. Haley giggled. I drove him to our house and fed him two bowls of dog food and some water. Napoleon looked on from the living room window baring his little terrier teeth, yelping and scratching at the glass. Just then my husband drove up. This

was the end of his rope. “I’ll drive him to the pound!” he said, not even getting out of his car or asking any questions as to where Old Yeller came from. Just then an old woman came hobbling up the street waving her arms. “Chico!” she called. Thank God. The dog recognized her and took off down the street. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? Perhaps I’ll come home to find a push-me-pull-you in my backyard … To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Should You File Bankruptcy? by Joan Grimes, Esq. A common question people ask me is whether they should file for bankruptcy. They don’t want to file, but they also know that they cannot continue with the status quo. Here is what I ask them: 1. Can you pay your bills as they come due and owing? 2. Can you pay off your credit card bills in full in the next 12 months? 3. If you own a house, do you have a fixed rate mortgage that you can payoff by the time you retire? Is your house worth what you owe against it? If you have answered “no” to any of these questions, you should be considering whether a fresh start through bankruptcy maybe the right decision for you. A fresh start has been provided to the Banks, the Investment Companies, and the Insurance Companies and a fresh start is available to consumers. Most home loan made between 2001-2007 could not be paid off on a person income. More than anyone, the banks knew that a person can only pay off in home loan debt of 2-21/2 times their gross household income in this lifetime and save for retirement and raise a child or two. A fresh start for a consumer is usually a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. A Chapter 7 is a straight bankruptcy also known as a liquidation case. In a Chapter 7 case, all assets and liabilities are included and the Chapter 7 Trustee will have the right to liquidate non-exempt assets for the benefit of creditors. In exchange for including all assets and liabilities, an individual’s promise to pay on most debts are forgiven through a discharge. In most cases, there are no assets available to creditors because all of the assets are exempt or encumbered by liens to the full extent of their value. Exempt assets that the Chapter 7 Trustee cannot reach include 401k, IRA, Annuity, retirement plan, equity in a car up to $3,525, most household goods and furnishing, life insurance, most personal injury actions, and then $23,250 in other assets such as motorcycles, boats, RV or

additional equity in cars or other items. Most people who are having problems paying their bills qualify for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy either because their income is low or because their mortgage payments and other secured loans such as car loans are too high in relation to their income. However, a person should not delay in seeking legal advice. The loss of a home prior to a bankruptcy filing either through a short sale or foreclosure may make an individual’s income too high for a Chapter 7 and the only option will be Chapter 13 repayment plan which will last between 3-5 years. In addition, there may be personal liability and tax consequences which could have been eliminated in a bankruptcy. In conclusion, if you are having financial problems, seek legal counsel. You did not make this real estate and credit card meltdown. There are serious personal liability and tax consequence of a short sale and foreclosure. Make sure you understand your legal rights prior to undertaking either a short sale or allowing your property to be foreclosed. Do not lose sleep and your sanity worrying about financial problems.

Antioch High School is in the running to receive a $250,000 grant from PepsiCo, Inc. as part of Pepsi’s Refresh Project, a program that invites the public to choose which foundations will receive more than $1 million in grants. Antioch was ranked 42 out of more than 250 projects at press time, but only the top two causes will receive a grant. The city is seeking a half-million dollar grant to improve its track, which isn’t up to California Interscholastic Federation

Lions from page 12A to achieve his dream of playing for the legendary institution – is awarded to the student in grades five through eight who has displayed the same diligence, perseverance and teamwork as Ruettinger. For Excelsior Middle School Principal Charles Miller, who nominated Saint Peter for the award – the choice was obvious. “When I was approached by the Delta Lions, they asked me to identify a student who had overcome obstacles to achieve their best, and Saint Peter has done that,” said Miller. “We (staff) all agree that he is the most improved of all our students. He has turned himself around academically and is focused, works well with others and has come a long way. We appreciate the Lions Club supporting such positive student behavior and we look forward to this being an annual award.”

regulations. Every month, Pepsi selects worthy community projects, puts each cause on its Web site and asks the public to vote for its favorites. Voting is open for the entire month of June. The June winners will be announced July 1. Voting is free, and those registered at www.refresheverything.com may vote once a day for the cause of their choice. To vote for Antioch High School, visit www.refresheverything.com/antiochhighschooltrack.

Byron Delta Lions President Joyce Sutay called the award presentation “One of the highlights of my Lions career.” The honors were augmented by a trophy and a $50 cash award. For Kimber, the event was one of the highlights of her life; the reward for her own hard work and perseverance on behalf of Saint Peter. “I sat with my son after we got home (from the awards presentation) and explained to him what that award is and I told him why I was so happy,” said Kimber. “He said that he saw me crying at the program and asked me why I was crying. I told him that I am not the only one who believes in him. And since then we always say something about the award before the day ends. I want to thank everyone for helping me make my son see himself in a new way.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Closures from page 1A has decimated property tax revenues, the district is operating at a deficit. Over the last two years, revenue has fallen nearly 25 percent, and another 10-percent drop is expected next year. This year the shortfall amounts to $1.7 million; next year’s is expected to be $2.3 million. Before the 2012-13 fiscal year ends, cash reserves being used to make up the shortfall will be exhausted and the district could face bankruptcy. The 48 firefighter/six station plan would save the district $814,000 in personnel costs. Dropping a contract with CalFire to staff an additional station on Marsh Creek Road (CalFire pays to keep the station open during the fire season) saves $366,000, and shuttering two stations cuts $70,000 from the operations budget. The total savings in the plan are $1.25 million. Acting Fire Chief Hugh Henderson told the board that cuts alone cannot solve the district’s financial woes. Even the most severe option examined – eliminating six firefighters and three stations – would stave off the potential bankruptcy only one year longer. A number of possible actions were brought up at the meeting, including charging out-of-area people for emergency services, contracting with CalFire to run the district, borrowing, selling the district’s fire boat and going to the cities within the district and asking for money. Board members said that those options had been looked at before, and were either impractical or did not make enough of a difference to stave off the inevitable: a tax increase. Several board members said they did not believe residents of the dis-

ECCFPD Station 95 on Bethel Island is one of the stations that could be closed by next month because of declining district revenue. trict would support a new tax unless the board, which took control of the district from the County Board of Supervisors earlier this year, proved it could produce a budget for this year given the resources it has, and showed it could make difficult and possibly unpopular decisions needed to ultimately resolve the problem. “We can’t go out and ask the citizens of East County to raise taxes if we can’t take the abuse that might come by closing stations,” said Board Member Kevin Romick of Oakley. Adding urgency to the situation is the fact that it will take 18 months to

prepare a ballot measure, submit it to voters and, if it passes, begin to receive revenue. Chairman Erick Stonebarger of Brentwood said the board must be sure it’s asking for enough, as there will be no second chance. “We’re only going to get one shot at this,” he said. “We better make sure the number is right.” Although no decision was made about which stations might face closure, discussion centered on the three that answer the fewest calls: Station 95 in Bethel Island (383 calls per year), Station 58 in Discovery Bay (379), and Station 57 in Byron (294).

Highway from page 3A eBART line, with stations in the highway median at Railroad and Hillcrest avenues, is scheduled to be completed around the same time. While funding has been secured for the highway widening and eBART line, the financial pipeline is drying up for future transportation projects, according to Garamendi. “We have a real problem at the federal level,” he said. “We need to re-authorize the Surface Transportation Act. Not easily done. We’re going to have to find the money to pay

for these improvements. We can still borrow from China a little while longer, perhaps. But those days are going to be over. So we’re going to need to really move forward. All of us have to think about these next steps; how we’re going to get these things done. “It’s critically important. If you can’t move, you can’t move your economy, you can’t create jobs. So these infrastructure projects are critical. I’m delighted to see this one move along. I’m looking forward to the next phase. We are moving closer and

closer to closing the gap and moving transportation through this area. It can’t be done without all of us working together. For those of you who have worked on these projects: a very, very big thank you from a Highway 4 commuter that’s looking forward to the relief.” For more information, call the highway widening project hotline at 925-756-0721 or go online to www. widensr4.org. To comment, visit www.thepress. net.

Henderson’s report showed response times would increase in the areas now served by those stations were they closed. In Station 95’s area, the response could go from 7.1 minutes to an estimated 12 to 18 minutes; Station 57’s area could go from 7.5 minutes to 12 to 14 minutes; and Station 58’s area could go from 6.5 minutes to 9 to 11. While some response times would increase, the three-person crews at most stations would increase efficiency in other ways, Stonebarger pointed out, since they would allow more calls to be answered by one engine instead of two. The additional help would also keep the firefighters safer and reduce fatigue. Many of those in attendance Tuesday came from Bethel Island, whose remote location, large number of seniors and combustible peat soil pose special concerns. “East County has always treated Bethel Island as the poor second cousin,” said island resident Linda Robertson. “If you take our fire station, we’re pretty much doomed. People will die, houses will burn, and businesses will burn.” Bethel Island’s situation is further complicated by the condition of Station 95, which has been condemned due to mold, lead paint and asbestos. The challenges of building on the island’s floodplain makes replacing it more expensive. A special meeting was called for June 29, when the board will adopt its new budget and decide which stations will close. The closures will likely stay open until mid-July to help get through the July 4 fireworks season. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Freshman sports funding falls $48K short by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

Freshman sports will be eliminated from the Liberty Union High School District lineup starting this fall unless $48,000 is raised privately by August. The elimination of the stipend for freshman coaches is one of a number of cuts recently enacted by the LUHSD board to deal with a budget shortfall due to state education funding cutbacks. “It’s a horrible loss,” said Assistant Superintendent Eric Volta of the elimination of freshman sports. “Everything that we have been doing – all of the cuts we have been doing in education this year – have been horrible. It’s not just athletics; it’s our clubs as well. Our freshman English classes used to be 20-1 (student-teacher ratio) and now will be 32- or 35-1. Freshman math classes were 20-1 and will be at the regular class size of 32-1. We have cut district librarians, the diversity coordinator, clerical staff. We are looking at $4 million of cuts for next year in everyday operating expenses. “All of the cuts are hurtful. It’s hard to place a value on one cut over another, because they are affecting different people in different ways. All of our extracurricular activities – that was extra time that a student spent with an adult after school, associating with the school, connecting with the school. That will be tough to fill that void somehow. With athletics you have to have a minimum GPA and behavior code in order to participate in those activities. Hopefully, not too many people lose their way through these cuts.” Eight freshman coaches in football, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, baseball and softball at each of the district’s three high schools receive about $2,000 each per season. Eliminating the stipends equates to a savings of about $16,000 per school or

Freedom High sports boosters sell refreshments at Saturday’s graduation to raise funds to save freshman sports. $48,000 for the district. Several coaches have offered to coach for free. But Volta said, “That is not an option at this time. We want to make it equitable among all of the schools.” District officials want to avoid the possibility of one school raising funds to pay its freshman coaches while the others are unable to do so. “Another school’s coach might say, ‘I am practicing five days a week and you want me to donate my time?’ We want to make it equitable for all sites.” Also the funding must be equitable for both boys and girls sports, according to federal Title 9 regulations. A fundraising effort is underway to save freshman sports. Volta said that the LUHSD Education Foundation Web site, www.educationwins.org, would be updated to allow donations to be targeted for freshman sports. There is definite concern about the loss of freshman sports – an e-mail blast was recently sent out by a parent urging others to contact Volta, who said he’s

received 15 e-mails or calls so far. But raising that amount of money in the next seven weeks will be a tall order, according to Steve Amaro, Freedom High athletic director. “It’s a possibility,” he said. “And we are going to try it. Realistically, I think it’s a tremendous long shot without an extraordinary amount of community support. August is coming so quick.” The Freedom sports booster club sold water and ice cream at the school’s graduation ceremony Saturday to raise money for freshman sports. They are also considering holding a casino night fundraiser, selling advertisements at the football field and having a fundraising booth at the Brentwood CornFest. “Any way you look at it, $48,000 is a lot of money,” said Amaro, even if it’s broken into $16,000 needing to be raised per school. “For Oakley that’s a tremendous challenge that we face. There are a lot of people who have already given all that they can. At least one school (Heritage) will be

able to raise the money pretty easily. The other (Liberty) has a 100-year history. We (at Freedom) face a stacked deck. We will have to do the best we can. The beautiful thing about Oakley is that when it faces challenges, it rises to it. It’s unfortunate that it’s come to that.” But even if the $48,000 is raised by August, many freshman teams might be playing shortened seasons this fall. The local teams have given a heads-up to their opponents to let them know the games likely will not be played, allowing the other teams to schedule other opponents. “It’s a sad day for Freedom athletics and the district’s athletics,” said Amaro. “It’s a sad day for the school community. We want to try to get as many people involved in athletics. It gives a connection to campus that they didn’t have before, which will increase their chance of success.” He noted that if the freshman teams are eliminated, talented freshman athletes would still have the opportunity to try out for and play on the junior varsity teams – in fact, some freshmen play varsity sports. “Obviously they will still pick the best athletes for the team,” Amaro said. “However, that makes the competition for the JV team that much more competitive. Some athletes may be turned off from that. Some athletes that are late bloomers may not have an opportunity to participate (at all). The reverse is true as well. You may have a freshman with potential and cut a senior to make room for that freshman with the understanding that you will have that freshman for four years. It can go both ways, and both ways it can have a consequence.” The next Freedom sports boosters meeting is 7 p.m. on June 14 at the high school. Amaro said it would take a concerted effort by the booster clubs at all three schools to reach the $48,000 goal. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

BVAL athletes make tracks to state finals by Nate Smith Correspondent

Despite finishing the 2010 track and field championships without winning any state titles, the Bay Valley Athletic League was well represented in Saturday’s finals action at Buchanan High School in Clovis. Deer Valley senior Chizoba Okodogbe recorded the highest finish of any local athlete, placing second in the girls’ 400-meter dash with a time of 53.42 by virtue of a late surge to overcome two competitors in the final 100 meters. Okodogbe also joined forces with teammates Nijae Jones, Darnella Jenkins

and Erica Wilson to place fourth overall in the 4x400-meter relay, an event in which the Wolverines have become an annual threat in the state finals. The quartet’s finals time of 3:44.25 placed them behind national powerhouse Long Beach Poly, Gardena Serra and St. Mary’s Academy, all three of which hail from the Southern Section. Serra was powered by standout freshman Chimere Ezumah, the event’s only athlete capable of holding off Okodogbe in the open 400 meters. In fact, the Southern Section placed seven teams in the top eight. Deer Valley was the lone exception. Freedom and Antioch were also well represented in Saturday’s action. Freedom’s Kenny Walker qualified fifth for the final in the boys’ 110meter hurdles, posting a new schoolrecord time of 14.12 before placing sixth in the final, running 14.26 in that race. Both races also solidified his status as the top sophomore hurdler in the state, beating Vista’s Devin Hickey in the trials and finals. It also marked the first time that a Freedom athlete had earned a medal at the state championships. Meanwhile, Antioch’s Evan Grimes burst onto the state scene with a fourth-place performance in the long jump, leaping out to 23 feet, 2¼ inches, missing third place by just a quarter of an inch. Grimes also ranked as the top jumper

from the North Coast Section at the state meet. A number of local athletes turned in solid performances in Friday’s trials portion of the meet, but were just unable to make the finals. Freedom’s boys 4x100-meter relay team missed making finals by eight-hundredths of a second, placing 10th overall in the state. Likewise with Deer Valley’s girls 4x100 meter relay, which placed 11th, missing the finals by just fourhundredths of a second. In the field events, Khyia Slone of Heritage placed 14th in the long jump, while Antioch’s Tatjana Pitts placed 22nd in the discus throw. Deer Valley’s Sean Combs placed 20th in the long jump after fouling his first two attempts, while the Wolverines’ Erica Wilson recorded a pair of top15 finishes in the 100- and 300-meter hurdles. Deer Valley and Antioch were represented in the 200-meter dash, as Darnella Jenkins placed 18th in the girls’ race for the Wolverines, while Shamawn Wright placed 29th in the boys’ race for the Panthers. Rounding things out for the BVAL was Freedom’s Timazray Shepherd, who placed 19th in the 100 meters, running a school-record time of 10.7 against the deepest 100-meter trials in state history with the final qualifying time on Friday at 10.54.

Hometown from page 1B Sylvia, who was on a roll all tournament. After qualifying eighth, he knocked off Noel Vazquez in three straight games to make it to the top eight. He won two games against Ron Garr to reach the top four, then beat Kerry Painter by more than 100 pins to make it to the championship. Sylvia then outbowled J.P. Muller by 36 pins to take the crown and the $8,000 prize money as fans and friends cheered on the returning hometown hero. “I exceeded my expectations,” he said in an understatement. “I felt very relaxed coming into this week. It was good to get back on the lanes. Even though I’ve had a tough couple of years, my love for bowling hasn’t changed. I’m very, very excited about what happened over the weekend. I always want to bowl for those people because they were so good to me in my seven years there. To come back and win this thing there is quite the dream. “It’s the greatest feeling in the world when you have hometown support. It’s a plus, but it’s like a double-edged sword. You want to do well for them and sometimes you try too hard and don’t. This (crowd) is like the sixth man. There was a lot of positive energy going in there (in the championship). “This was my third title. But at the moment this is probably the most important win of my career. Where I have been the last 18 months – this is a big boost of confidence.

Freedom from page 1B whether you’re eight or 18. I thought we had some base-running mistakes that we haven’t made all year. I don’t know what we were doing over there a couple of times, trying to take third for no apparent reason.” Two of Freedom’s three runs were bittersweet. After Logan took a 2-1 lead in the second inning, Freedom tied the game in the top of the third on a double from Jackie Zepeda, which scored Padilla. But then Zepeda broke a cardinal rule by trying to advance to third and making the final out of an inning at third base. Freedom took the lead the following inning on a Logan throwing error that allowed Kaleialii to reach base. Sarah Osborn scored when the Logan right fielder overthrew everyone on what seemed like a routine throw back into the infield. Kaleialii and the Falcons repeated the same mistakes of the previous inning when she was cut down trying to get to third base, ending the inning. Freedom got on the board in the second inning when Katie Wood lined a one-out single that scored Zepeda. Wood advanced to third when the Logan right fielder misplayed the ball and let it get to the wall. Wood was cut down at the plate when Osborn grounded out to the shortstop. That out was made more painful for Freedom when the next hitter, Kaleialii, hit a single to left field that would have scored Wood from third. Williams pitched a complete game for Freedom, striking out eight hitters, allowing eight hits and walking two batters. The best thing for Freedom to take out of this game is that their young nucleus – including Williams, who will be a sophomore – will return next season. “We’re lucky; we’re blessed with some big talented young kids that work hard,” said

SPORTS

I don’t know how long it’s going to last, but I’m going to treasure it for a while. I owe it to everybody at Harvest Park Bowl, and everybody in that town was a part of this win and will be for a long time. Hopefully, Jim (Wangeman) will have it next year, so I can come back and maybe we can have another dream.” The tournament was also a victory for Wangeman, who made a bit of money this year, unlike the slight loss he took last year. He has to pay $20,000 to host the PBA Senior Tour, which is in its 13th year at Harvest Park Bowl, but usually makes it back from sponsors, pro-am tournament fees and food and beverage sales. Attendance was up this year, he said, with about 400 people watching the championship. “It went great,” said Wangeman. “I couldn’t have written a script any better. We had the greatest bowler of all time bowling in our tournament. We had a lot of Hall of Famers bowling in the tournament. It was wonderful; it was very successful. We had 106 professionals and their guests. “This is one of our best tournaments ever. It was very well attended; we had good crowds all week; filled our hotels up. It was very successful for us and the city. We have a wonderful staff here. Sherry Mackenzie, our tournament director, and the whole staff does a great job. And we appreciate everybody’s support.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Jonas. “They’re going to need to continue to work hard if they want to be back here next year. And I think they will; I think they are those kinds of kids. They like to work hard, they like being coached – kind of toughminded. We’ve got a good young battery coming back next year, and I think we should have a good chance to win some games.” While Jonas was excited about the youth of his team, he was frustrated by what his seniors had to go through on their graduation day. “Our seniors have had a long day today. Most of them started at 6 or 6:30 this morning for graduation. It’s too bad that they couldn’t find a way, in all of NCS’ infinite wisdom, to not play on a school’s graduation. “It’s one thing when they play on proms, because that’s just something that we have to deal with. But graduations are days where the kids should be with their families. I was proud of our seniors to get out here and be as focused as they were.” Jonas summed up the 23-4 season, saying, “I would call this season a major success. I don’t think many people thought that we’d be back in this after we lost Hannah (Williams), Susan (Robertson), Chrissy (Stalf) and Chelsea (Hennings) last year. The kids worked really hard and we believed, whether other people did or not. It would have been nice to finish out with a win, but we’ve done a lot of things that were more important than what the scoreboard read this year. “They’re good kids, they work hard – what else do you want? Sometimes it’s more important on how you deal with failure than how you deal with success. I think they’ll bounce back and you’ll see them doing great things; whether that’s as a softball player or in a job or anything else. They’re just good, solid people.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Racers rev up for big weekend at Raceway by Jack Menges Correspondent After a two-week layoff, Antioch Speedway action resumes Saturday with a five-event program, providing a tune-up for the big $20,000 purse race at a special event next week. Promoter John Soares, Jr. has come up with one of the richest dirt modified races in California this year for the main event June 19, when the winner takes $5,000 and payoffs of at least $400 go to the starters in the 50-lap feature race. “There aren’t many races in the West that give the dirt modifieds that kind of

money,” Soares Jr. said. “We should get a good turnout of entries from the northern and central sections of the state.” Heading the program Saturday are the wingless sprints in a battle for the point lead. With victories in the last two main events, Tom Laliberte leads the way at 292 points, only two more than David Press. Veteran Jim Perry is next with 278. Rounding out the card will be the super stocks, pure stocks, mini trucks and four bangers. Mitch Machado is in front of the super stock point chase with 310 and is followed by Larry Damitz’s 294; Fred Ryland’s 284 and Eric Berendson’s 272.

Freedom dominates Heritage in semifinal by Nate Smith Correspondent

For the Heritage softball team’s third consecutive postseason game, freshman Aliciana Ramirez drove in the Patriots’ only run. But unlike her RBIs in the previous two contests, her homer in the top of the seventh inning had no impact on the game’s outcome – it merely prevented a shutout in the Patriots’ 1-7 loss to host Freedom on June 2. The Falcons took control early. Jackie Zepeda drove in Kim Westlund in the bottom of the first inning to give Freedom a 1-0 advantage against sophomore pitcher Lisa Rodrigues. Each of the prior three meetings between the two schools had been close: Heritage won the first match-up and Freedom captured the next two. But this one didn’t stay in question for long. Freedom pitching phenom Madison Williams improved to 19-1 in the circle as the Falcon lineup provided more than enough run support, detonating a five-run explosion in the bottom of the second inning. The North Coast Section’s dom-

Freedom’s Kim Westlund slides home with the first run in a 7-1 victory over Heritage in a recent NCS semifinal showdown. inant softball program over the last decade pounded out six of its 13 hits off Rodrigues in the second frame. The majority of the damage occurred before a single batter was retired, as

the Falcons loaded the bases in front of Zepeda and Malena Padilla. Padilla’s RBI double made it 3-0, and Zepeda’s twobagger put the game away. By the end of the fourth inning Freedom led 7-0, and Westlund, Padilla, Zepeda and Sarah Osborn had all notched two hits to pace the potent Falcons offense. The victory was Freedom’s 17th consecutive win, improving its overall record to 23-3. It also marked the fourth time in the last five games that the Falcons had scored seven or more runs – a staggering 179 runs through 26 games, a stellar total for a sport usually dominated by pitching. The victory over Heritage advanced Freedom to its third straight championship game where the girls faced 24-5 James Logan. The Colts advanced to the championship by virtue of back-to-back victories over league foes American and Newark Memorial. Heritage, meanwhile, fell to 17-10 to finish the season, after making it to the semifinals via thrilling 1-0 victories over College Park and Antioch. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Certified Nutritional Counselor Salade Niçoise is a specialty of the Côte d’Azur region of France, originating in the city of Nice and so named. This luscious, high-protein salad is a classic example of healthy, Mediterranean cuisine: loaded with sun-drenched flavors, low-fat, heart-healthy, satisfying and delicious. The original version of the salad featured artichoke hearts, never potatoes. This is a perfect light summer entrÊe, especially when served with garlic toast points and an excellent glass of wine, whether a sauvignon blanc or pinot noir.

Ingredients 6 cups of mixed baby greens, romaine or butter lettuce. 2-3 large tomatoes of any type, freshly picked if possible. 1 can high-quality albacore water-packed tuna, drained. 2 hard-boiled eggs. ½ pound fresh green beans, cooked al dente, sliced. 1 jar artichoke hearts, drained (remove tough pieces).
