Water rates on the rise in DB by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer The bad news for Discovery Bay residents is that their combined water and sewer rates will be increasing 17 percent on July 1 and another 18.4 percent the following year. The good news, however, is that Delta dwellers will still be paying less to wash and flush than their regional counterparts. “In looking at rate structures for other districts in our area, Discovery Bay is still lower than comparable districts,” said CSD President Kevin Graves of the rate increases. “But the fact is that in order to maintain our facilities the way they need to be

maintained, our options were limited.” Effective the coming fiscal year, beginning July 1 (and based on an average use of 23 CCFs – roughly 17,000 gallons of water per month), non-metered residential users with a single-family lot size of 5,000 to 10,000 square feet will pay a combined monthly water and wastewater charge of $79.68; $94.81 the following year. For metered residential homeowners – roughly 1,900 homes in Discovery Bay – the average rate, again based on 23 CCFs per month, will be $76.92 for blended water and wastewater use this

Feelin’ the love It was one year ago we at The Press launched our first “I Love the Press” campaign, aimed at building a base of volunteer subscribers. The goal was to compile a list of readers who, by requesting the otherwise free Hometown Weekly Newspaper, helped us maintain out status as a paper of legal record. We were astonished and pleased at the number of residents who cheerfully jumped onto the bandwagon. In addition to continuing to run legal notices, the response has helped us show out-of-town advertisers just how loyal our readers are. Because of you, The Press will continue to come to your home every week for free. It’s been a year, so once again we’re asking for your support.

Months after Antioch’s City Council called the designs of a proposed eBART station at Hillcrest Avenue unacceptable, transit representatives returned Tuesday with an improved proposal city officials could go along with. In December, BART officials presented an updated design of a potential $462 million eBART station at Highway 4 and Hillcrest Avenue. City Council members rejected the design, noting the lack of a station agent, public restrooms and escalators. BART Director Joel Keller said at the time that there wasn’t enough funding for a station agent or escalators and public restrooms would attract criminal activity. However, Tuesday night’s

proposal from project manager Ric Rattray addressed Antioch’s safety concerns. If the station comes to fruition, there will be a dedicated station agent at the Hillcrest stop during peak hours – 6 to 8 a.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. The station will also employ a community service officer for the morning, afternoon and evening hours the station agent is absent. The police chiefs of Antioch and BART are also working together to make sure that one party won’t create too much work for the other. Acting Antioch Police Chief Allan Cantando and BART’s top cop, Kenton Rainey, said at Tuesday’s meeting that they have been sharing ideas to make the area safer and will form a partnership should the station

2011 CornFest: made in the shade by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

When Brentwood’s CornFest comes to town next month, it will boast plenty of popular attractions, fabulous fireworks and sizzling entertainment. But one thing it won’t boast is a lack of shade. The 2011 CornFest – held the weekend of July 8, 9 and 10 – has moved from its usual City Park location (due to downtown construction) to a 38-acre site at Brentwood Boulevard and Sand Creek Road. The treeless, dirt field had sparked concern over the lack of shade trees and abundance of dust, but according to CornFest Chairman Dirk Zeigler, that’s all been handled. “This year there will be 24,000 square feet of shade tents,” said Zeigler. “In addition to the beer tents, we will have additional oversized tents that will offer a lot more shade than you get under the City Park trees. “The other concerns have been about dust, and what we’re going to be doing is knocking down the weeds and compacting them and then watering them. According to the farmers, if you compact and spray it down, the dirt turns into a texture like cement. So dust should not be a problem.” Twenty acres of parking will also relieve visitors of the frustration of searching for a spot. But Zeigler warned that those who park in the Sand Creek Center

across from the CornFest will be towed. “Parking will be good,” said Zeigler. “But we want people to understand that they cannot park in the Sand Creek Center – it’s for shopping only. There is plenty of onsite parking on the south side of Sand Creek. It shouldn’t be a problem for people.” The shade, dust and parking situations under control, visitors to the threeday event will be free to enjoy the fun, which this year includes the nation’s largest Ferris wheel – a whopping 70 feet tall (“think of that in the sky at night with all the lights,” said Zeigler) – plus more than 300 arts and crafts vendors, a petting zoo, classic car show and continuous live entertainment. Musical guests include AC/Dshe, Great White, Public Eye and Cream of Clapton. And of course there’s the corn. “There will be plenty of corn,” said Zeigler. “The hot weather makes for great corn and the farmers are very excited about it. We will have two roasting locations and there will be corn shucking, corn on the cob, corn-flavored ice cream and corn for sale.” New to the CornFest this year is a historical area showcasing Brentwood’s storied agricultural past. Exhibits will include old-time farming equipment and period pieces from the historical society as well as booths from the Future Farmers of America and local 4-H organizations. Also new this year will be manda-

tory ticket wristbands. Everyone breezing through the gate must wear a wristband. Those that don’t, said Zeigler, will be asked to leave. But the traditional favorites of the weekend – such as the Friday night fireworks show – are alive and well, bigger and better than ever. “I don’t want to give too much away,” said Zeigler. “But the fireworks show is going to be spectacular. Not very many people are doing fireworks these days, but we are. “We’re excited. It’s going to be a great event. It’s a great location and this layout is going to lend itself to an incredible event. We really feel that this year we’ve done some things that are going to make for a successful event and allow us to give back to the nonprofits, which is really what the CornFest is all about: giving back to our local organizations.” The CornFest, presented by the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce, opens Friday, July 8 and runs through Sunday, July 10. Hours are Friday from 3 to 10 p.m.; Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets are $10 for general admission; $5 for children 6 to 12 and seniors 62 and over. Children 5 and under are free. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce, 8440 Brentwood Blvd., Suite C. For more information, call 925-634-3344.

Freedom Tub Tour rolls through East County by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

If you’ve noticed what appears to be a lot of American flag hot tubs on display at local businesses these days, you’re not alone. It’s not an increase in the public’s preference for patriotic pools, though, it’s the same star-spangled spa making appearances around far East County, all in the name of supporting the troops. “We’re a traveling show,” laughed Ed McClelland of Operation Creekside, a nonprofit, faith-based organization that ships care packages to our troops overseas. “If we’re not at Bill Brandt Ford, the Brentwood Café or Big B Lumber, then we’re parked somewhere else. It’s a bit of a logistical nightmare, but we do it because we know our troops are out there every day working harder than we do.” For nearly two years, Operation Creekside has been sending more than 100 care packages per month to troops stationed around the world, boxing up such non-perishable items as popcorn, almonds and a troop favorite – Pop Tarts. “I’ve personally bought thousands of boxes of them,” said McClellan. “Everyone loves the Pop Tarts. We’ve also sent SpongeBob fruit snacks – lots of fun – as well as Cool Ties (bandana-like cold packs) along with whatever other items we can collect.” But the project takes money – specifically postage. And at $12.95 per box, the

The fundraiser supports the sending of care packages to troops overseas. tab comes out to roughly $1,300 monthly, making fundraising projects such as the hot tub raffle a necessity. “We’re constantly marketing ourselves in different ways, and this is just one way we fundraise,” said McClelland, who auctioned off a similar hot tub in 2009. “I get the door shut in my face a lot, but I just keep going. Our troops need

and appreciate the packages.” To date, more than 2,200 boxes have been shipped abroad, and the group’s lists come from a variety of sources. Over the next few weeks the Freedom Tub Tour will make stops at a variety of locales in Brentwood and Discovery Bay. Raffle tickets are available for $5 (or five for $20) at each of the spa stops. On Tues-

day, July 12, the $5,000 hot tub will be raffled off at Bill Brandt Ford in Brentwood. Raffle participants needn’t be present to win. Joining the Freedom Hot Tub tour is a Craftsman, roll-around tool chest valued at $400 and donated by Big B Lumberteria. Buy $20 worth of tickets for the hot tub drawing, and you’ll get a bonus ticket for the tool box drawing as well. The group is also raising postage money through sponsorships of the Operation Creekside trailer. The Freedom Tub Tour will make an appearance at Ace Hardware in Brentwood on Friday and Saturday, June 17 and 18; Sasville Properties in Discovery Bay on Friday, June 24; and the Discovery Bay Paddle for Fame event on Saturday, June 25. Additional stops include Dino’s Sandwich Shop in Brentwood on Friday, July 1; Brentwood’s Big B Lumber on Friday and Saturday, July 8 and 9; and Bill Brandt Ford on Tuesday, July 12. “This has been such a joy,” said McClellan. “We work for God and we want the troops to benefit. It’s such a needed ministry. It’s a real blessing.” For additional information, tickets or to add a troop address to the mailing list, call 925-698-1422 or visit www. operationcreekside.org and click on Add Troops.

A whole new ballgame in Antioch I love Antioch. I’ve lived here for 20 years. I know this town has gone through some growing pains, but basically I still feel safe and enjoy living here. Last week I think I changed my mind. As my 8-yearold daughter and HANGIN’ IN I pulled up to my HERE son’s Little League game at the Antioch Fairgrounds, she said something unusual to me. “I don’t like this part of town. It scares me”. “That’s odd,” VICKI I thought. She has MCKENNA always liked the fairgrounds, especially the snack shack, but not today. I took her hand and consoled her. “We’ve been coming here for years and nothing bad has ever happened Haley, so relax.” She seemed to accept my answer and found a nice spot on the bleachers. The fairground baseball fields have improved a lot recently, thanks to a lot of hard work and many donations, including one from KNBR. I can remember the days of overgrown weeds and piles of garbage everywhere. Once while attending my oldest son’s baseball game, my younger son, about 3 years old at the time, approached me with a huge smile on his face and black grease

T

and rust all over his shirt. He was dragging an entire exhaust pipe and muffler behind him. He actually thought he was going to take it home! I was afraid he might have contracted tetanus. I checked his immunization record that night. Yes, the fairground fields have improved a lot since then. The game on Wednesday was exciting. Tied at 2-2, it was do or die for our Fireballs. Then we heard a pop-pop-pop. “Are those firecrackers … or gunfire?” I asked, trying to make a joke, but it was no joke. More shots were fired. A couple of coaches yelled out, “Get the kids off the field!” It was gunfire! Both fields were instantly evacuated. Team members were herded into the dugouts while parents and other spectators took cover with their smaller children behind the bleachers. Pulling out our cell phones, we all tried to contact the police to find out what was happening. Haley squeezed my hand tightly. We were informed that the activity took place on Sycamore Drive, right behind the baseball fields. Apparently some idiots decided to take pot shots at the tires of parked cars. No one was injured, but many shell casings were found. The police gave us the OK to return to our game. Haley didn’t let go of my hand for a while. The game went into extra innings, still tied up. “Hey,” someone yelled, “that house is on fire!” We all turned in

disbelief only to see a two-story townhouse on the edge of the fields belching black smoke, orange flames licking up the side of the building. A man was running around his backyard frantically trying to put out the flames with a garden hose. His barbecue had caught fire and that caught the house on fire. “I hate this place!” Haley screamed, starting to cry. A friend who had come to cheer on our team turned to me and said, “This is the last time I’m coming to one of your games.” Despite all the commotion, our Fireballs were not distracted. They remained focused despite the fire engine that drove onto the field and the flurry of activity at the burning house. Thankfully, no one was hurt and there was minimal damage. Inning after inning we managed to hold on and finally in the 10th inning, we won. I was never so glad to leave a game in my life. After such a crazy night, we all agreed that beer and pizza was definitely in order … especially the beer. I realized later (and maybe it was the beer) that there was a crazy underlying theme that night – “fire” being the operative word: gunfire, house on fire, and Fireball victory. I also realized that Antioch isn’t the safe little town I once knew. And that’s got me fired up. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Stuart gala hits all the right notes by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

Helen Dixon stood in front of hundreds of people at the Lone Tree Golf Course and Event Center Friday and pointed to the signs on the wall. They were inscribed with all the things Sue Stuart is planning to do in her retirement, Dixon said, and they were there to prevent Sue from listing them for each person there to honor her. The signs said things like “Crochet,” “Learn to play the string bass” and “Be available for family and friends,” and they covered two walls in the huge banquet hall. Impressive as it was, however, the list paled in comparison to the legacy Stuart leaves behind after 35 years at Liberty High School. A plaque from Allan E. Jones, Stuart’s mentor at Liberty and the man after whom the school’s Performing Arts Center is named, was displayed near the room’s entrance alongside a 3-foot tall treble clef rendered in ice. It echoed many of the conversations that could be heard at dozens of tables filled with friends, family, colleagues and generations of students. “This very special plaque … represents 35 years of contribution Susan has given to her students, staff and community,” said Dixon. “She will leave a legacy to us all that will never diminish in our minds.

Sue Stuart, center, chats with friends Mark Valencia and Mary Black during last weekend’s Retirement Gala honoring her 35 years at Liberty High School. “Her constant attention to students’ needs, her attention to musical details and stamina the job demands has inspired us all. “Susan is a remarkable person, a fine musician, a loving and talented individual

who has touched our lives forever. I will never forget her.” The gala included a touching retrospective of Stuart’s career – photos, news clippings and a song put together by Maureen and Bob Shepard. Proclama-

tions saluting Stuart’s career came from the City of Brentwood and Assemblywoman Joan Buchanan. And Rick Spero made an emotion-choked presentation from 80 VOLTS, the nonprofit organization that has helped raise money to support Stuart’s program. Liberty Union High School District Assistant Superintendent Gene Clare, a former principal at Liberty High, perhaps best illustrated Stuart’s ability to use music to help mold young lives. Clare said he had found two places on the Liberty campus where he would go from time to time for a respite from the rigors of the job. One was the coaches’ office, where the topic would be sports. “But if I really wanted to find out what education is all about, I would go hang out with Sue and listen to the chorus,” Clare said. It wasn’t always so. Stuart told the crowd that her career began somewhat inauspiciously when she came to Liberty in 1976. “I didn’t know what I was doing,” she said. “I sat behind the piano, played the parts, and said ‘Sing!’” Stuart’s typically modest assessment of her skills is belied by the fact that, under her direction, Liberty’s singers have grown in both ability and mobility, impressing audiences and judges across California and beyond.

PERMANENT LOAN MOD?

For Serrano, graduating from Live Oak is a steppingstone to an exciting future. In the fall, he plans to attend Los Medanos College and later transfer to California State University East Bay to earn his business administration degree. He ultimately hopes to be a real estate broker like his father. “This is only the beginning,” Serrano reminded his peers. “There are many struggles to overcome, many more

I’ve offered this in the past, but I wanted to remind you that I’m willing to review any loan mod offer you get from your bank. Sometimes it can be quite challenging to wade through all the fine print to see REALLY what the new terms are. One of the most important items I look for is whether this is a temporary or permanent modification. Based on the fairly small sample size of the modifications that I have reviewed, I’m seeing a fairly even split among three different types of modifications. About a third are permanent modifications, where they drop your rate and it stays there until the loan is paid off. Another third are short-term modifications where they drop the rate for a year or two, but then after that period it goes back up to whatever terms you are under now. And the last third are where the rate is dropped for a few years, then it stair-steps up a bit every year after that for maybe 2-5 years, but eventually levels off at a rate that’s lower than your current rate. My normal advice to people is to only accept a permanent modification unless your income has only temporarily been reduced,

and you are confident your income will rise once the payment rises again. I’ve had some clients report back that the lender refuses to make their modification permanent. When I ask the client to push back on that point, the lenders often say that they are forbidden to make permanent modifications. My clients ask me if this is true, and in some circumstances it actually IS true. If the loan has been sold off into a bond issue on Wall Street, there very well may be legal restrictions against making permanent modifications. The investors of the bond have been guaranteed certain rates of return, so the terms literally CANNOT be changed, even though that may lead to a foreclosure with even bigger losses. Many of the people that put these bonds together didn’t even consider that home values could drop as much as they have, so now their hands are tied in regards to making permanent modifications.

Bidwell High celebrates Class of 2011 by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

Though the road for students at Bidwell High School might have taken a few twists and turns, a celebration was waiting for them at the finish line. Recently, the Antioch continuation school sent 66 of its students into the future at its graduation ceremony at the Deer Valley High School Theatre. Graduates strode through the house, welcomed by cheering and screaming friends and relatives holding signs, banners and cameras. “These graduates realized the importance of education and persevered to earn their high school diploma,” Principal Amy Farias said. “They stuck with their individual graduation plan and as a result, they have completed all of the requirements to earn a high school diploma. Because of that, we’re celebrating tonight.” Student speakers Kaycee Gibson, Alyssa Windom and Amani Johnson described how Bidwell influenced them to get back on the right track in life. They spoke of how their past was forgotten by coming to Bidwell, which gave them a fresh start and the tools necessary for success. It was easy to see that this graduation ceremony meant more to these students than just a diploma. “This school did not care, nor were they interested, in my prior mistakes or unfinished business,” Gibson said. “It was like a fresh start coming here. The class sizes were smaller and the teachers were devoted to helping us get back on the right track.” In addition to the student speakers, several other graduates were also honored. Heald College gave $1,200 scholarships to Alejandro Corona and Jennifer Rivas. Gabriela Zavala received the Principal’s Award. Deanie

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

“Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off ” You say eether and I say eyether, you say neether and I say nyther; Eether, eyether, neether, nyther, let’s call the whole thing off! You like potato and I like potahto, you like Fannie Mae’s HomePath and I like Freddie Mac’s HomeSteps; Potato, potahto, Fannie Mae HomePath, Freddie Mac HomeSteps! Let’s call the whole thing off – but WAIT! Why call the whole thing off when both programs – HomePath and HomeSteps – are currently offering amazing opportunities to home buyers? Take HomePath for instance: Through June 30th the seller instantly credits the buyer 3.5% of the purchase price, the buyer doesn’t have to be a first time buyer, there isn’t any mortgage insurance (MI) or appraisal, and, unless you’re buying an investment home, your down payment can be a gift. As long as you’re buying a home to live in that down payment is only 3% - the smallest requirement on the market. So far I like HomePath…but I can understand why you would say HomeSteps, so let’s explore this program. Freddie Mac’s HomeSteps is offering a seller credit of 3.5% to all buyers who fall into contract between now and July 31st 2011 (and close before September 30th). That, and Freddie Mac will absorb 30% of the “sticker price” for your “home

related appliances.” Lastly, on certain HomeSteps homes, a two-year Home Protect warranty that covers plumbing, electrical, air conditioning, and other “major” items. So, you say laughter and I say lawfter, you say Fannie Mae HomePath and I say Freddie Mac HomeSteps, laughter, lawfter, Fannie Mae HomePath, Freddie Mac HomeSteps, let’s NOT call the whole thing off! Both programs only require 3% as a down payment for an owner-occupied purchase and 10% as a down-payment for an investment purchase. Both require a 640 middle FICO score and are excellent tools that one should arm them-selves with when attacking the housing market. Of course, before arming yourself and attacking the real estate market, call me. Not all lenders meet the legal requirements, or are Fannie Mae HomePath and Freddie Mac HomeSteps approved to offer these loan programs. I’m happy to say that I’m both – and I look forward to completing your Fannie Mae HomePath and/or Freddie Mac HomeSteps pre-approval. If you have any HomePath Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac HomeSteps, or any other real estate lending related questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to write me at tfreymortgages@yahoo.com or call me directly at 925-726-1444. – Advertisement

Wolverines stride into the future by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Waves of black and teal washing over the field at Wolverine Stadium at Deer Valley High School can mean only one thing: the next pack of Wolverines is ready to leave the den and prowl the world at large, following hopes and dreams into an unknown future. While the 653 graduates of the Class of 2011 have no idea what the future holds, they will face the unknown with confidence, courage and a drive to succeed – the same mindset they’ve used to make it through high school. “Throughout our high school careers we have set the bar and risen beyond the challenges presented in front of us,” said Senior Class President Aaron Low in his address to his fellow graduates. Despite personal and academic struggles, said Low, his fellow graduates learned the importance of perseverance during their high school journeys and will find success beyond their home at Deer Valley. Low encouraged the graduates to take the time to thank the people in their lives who helped them reach this milestone, but urged his classmates to take a moment to congratulate themselves and appreciate the hard work and effort they put into their education to get to this moment. While graduation seemed like a distant concept when they first set foot on the Deer Valley campus four years ago, time has passed quickly, but the years have been painted with memories the seniors will cherish for a lifetime. Low touched on some of the highlights, acknowledging Deer Valley athletes, the band and theater programs as well as the leadership students who went all out to make senior year memorable.

Deer Valley High School graduates listen as valedictorian Nada Rendradjaja speaks during commencement ceremonies last Friday. While Valedictorian Nada Rendradjaja agreed that high school has been a memorable experience, she urged her classmates to remember the personal moments that made high school special for them. Maybe it was homecoming or senior ball – or a moment that didn’t involve the entire senior class. But whatever that moment was, it’s to be cherished and honored as an important part of the high school journey. Those special moments have shaped the graduates into who they

are, said Rendradjaja, who encouraged her peers to love who they are and pursue their dreams no matter where it takes them. While Friday’s graduation was the last milestone the Class of 2011 would share at Deer Valley, the ceremony also marked the final time co-principals Scott Bergerhouse and Clarence Isadore would share the see Wolverines page 13A

Whatever that something may be, we achieved. For those who have believed in us – and even for those who doubted us – all I can say is: look at us now. Congratulations, Class of 2011!” Principal Amy Farias agreed with Serrano. Each student at Live Oak has a unique story. Some come to Live Oak because they were not successful at their previous high school while others come to the school after personal obstacles have interfered with the completion of high school credits. Whatever their story, the students of Live Oak have come to appreciate the importance of education and have pledged to make something of themselves. Senior Brittany Falley was expelled from four other high schools before she came to Live Oak. “I surrounded myself with people who didn’t care about their education,” Falley said. “After being rejected at the doors of Antioch High

Serrano was honored with the Academic Award for graduating with the highest grade point average; Steven Anello was awarded the Mayor’s Distinguished Student Award for his leadership and contributions to the Live Oak community; and Diana Barajas received the Principal’s Award for modeling what it is to be a well-rounded student, displaying a resilient work ethic and commitment to education. Alana Canada received the staff scholarship while Heald awarded $1,200 scholarships to Missael Rubio Pina, Esmerelda Fausto and Brian Smith. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Oakley OKs firearm ordinance by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

What could have been simple housekeeping turned into an hour-long discussion as the Oakley City Council debated the verbiage and restrictions laid out in a proposed firearms sales ordinance. Oakley has been operating under the assumption that the city had a firearm sales ordinance in its municipal code, which was adopted in 2004, but it recently came to staff ’s attention that the ordinance was inadvertently omitted from the code. Community Development Director Rebecca Willis said since the discovery of the omission, staff has been working feverishly to draft an urgency ordinance to present to the council to right the wrong made several years ago. Unlike traditional ordinances that pass by majority vote, an urgency ordinance must pass by four-fifths. The ordinance eventually passed 4-1, but it took a while for the council to come to an agreement. The strict ordinance demands that potential firearm sellers meet all federal and state requirements prior to seeking approval from the city. Firearm retailers must also acquire a conditional-use permit from the city and take rigorous precautions to ensure safety. Under the ordinance, the Oakley police chief will also be heavily involved in the per-

The strict ordinance demands that potential firearm sellers meet all federal and state requirements prior to seeking approval from the city. mit process to make sure implemented safety measures are satisfactory. The ordinance also lays out restrictions on where gun sales may take place. The ordinance proposed to restrict sales within a residential zone, within 150 feet of a school or day care facility and within 500 feet of another arms dealer. Councilman Randy Pope objected to the restriction of sales in a residential area. “That’s Americana. What’s a more wholesome place for a firearm exchange than a kitchen table?” Pope said retired police officers often sell firearms from their homes as a form of supplemental income, and the new ordinance would restrict that. People selling collectable firearms such as historical artifacts would also be restricted from selling from their homes. Willis explained that while licensed arms dealers would be prohibited from selling firearms from their homes, dealers could take the transaction to an established firearms dealer in a commercial area, such as Hook, Line and Sinker, and still be operating lawfully

under the ordinance. Councilwoman Carol Rios had no objections to the restrictions and preferred that firearms were not sold within a residential area. However, the new ordinance would grandfather any existing home businesses that handle firearm sales – and only one homebased firearms business currently exists in Oakley. Willis said the resident who operates the home-based firearms business has met all city, state and federal requirements and has an advanced security system to deter theft. City staff trusts the legitimacy and safety of the residential business and asked that the owner be allowed to maintain the business. Some members of the council, however, were unsure. Rios, Councilwoman Pat Anderson and Mayor Jim Frazier opposed the grandfather clause and wanted to set a deadline for when the business would cease residential operations. Councilman Kevin Romick sided with Pope, stating that since the resident has complied with all laws up

to this point, it would be unfair to punish the owner now. Willis testified that the resident has been cooperating with the city during this process and would take all necessary measures to keep the home business, which convinced Rios and Anderson to allow the grandfather clause. Pope proposed a motion to adopt the ordinance as is, but remove the home-sale restrictions to all existing and future dealers. But Pope’s proposal garnered only two supporting votes (Pope and Romick), so the council was forced to start again. Anderson proposed to adopt the ordinance as is, but the vote was again 3-2 – this time Pope and Frazier dissenting. As Frazier opposed sales transactions of any kind in a residential area, he voted no. City Manager Bryan Montgomery and City Attorney Derek Cole outlined other options the council might take to reach a consensus, but council members seemed unlikely to change their opinions. Following a few more minutes of deliberation, Frazier decided to support the ordinance on the condition that the ordinance be revisited in a year to make sure the grandfathered business continues to comply with the set parameters. In its third and final vote, the council approved the ordinance 4-1, Pope dissenting. To view the ordinance in its entirety, visit www.oakleyinfo.com. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Positively appreciative Editor: During the last 25-plus years we have each had the privilege of teaching at Brentwood Elementary School. This June will mark the end of those many wonderful years that we have spent working with many delightful children! On May 22, many of our former students and their parents were gracious enough to attend a reception at the school for us. Thank you all for taking the time to come by with your kind gifts and cards, but most of all, thank you for allowing us to see and hear about the positive influences we may have had on your lives and the lives of your children. There are very few professions where you can directly and sometimes immediately see the results of your labor. Teaching has been a career that now allows us to look back and know that we have used our working years to make a contribution in the lives of children. We are truly honored and blessed! Barbara Macedo, Sue Schnittker, Mary Ensign Brentwood

City should give ratepayers a break Editor: Brentwood has grown rapidly and beautifully. We have magnificent city buildings, a well-planned Senior Activity Center, numerous city parks and widened, old-fashioned city streets. Evidently, we have an astute and active City Council and Planning Commission. Yes, we have our mandated “fee” increase July 1 for water and sewage treatment. This annual increase of 7½ percent was started in 2007, lasting to 2013. Extensive studies indicated that Brentwood needed an annual increase (in July) to maintain and put on the bonds; 4 percent was needed to maintain the system and 3½ percent to cover anticipated inflation.

Check the 2007 study. Unfortunately, the inflation did not continue. Hopefully, the City Council would realize and give the ratepayers a needed break. Prudent planning, but in retrospect: overplanning. Note: Livermore, Antioch and Pleasanton have lower water rates. Concord, Dublin, San Ramon and Antioch have lower water treatment rates. We need more transparency. What do you think? G.D. Giddens Brentwood

Hold off on rate hike Editor: An open letter to the CSD board regarding proposed water and wastewater rate increases: We respectfully but strongly oppose the proposed increase in water and wastewater rates and respectfully urge that you find an alternative source for any additional resources needed to fund CSD water supply and wastewater treatment operations and that you continue to do this until the financial condition of the CSD water and wastewater users is more robust. You must know that we are in very difficult economic times. Our request is that you do what we must do in managing our household budgets, and that is: decrease expenses instead of increasing rates.

CSD consumers do not have the capacity to increase revenue. We acknowledge that some expenses such as fuel and electrical are not susceptible to such management but others, such as a “new five (5) year contract to operate and maintain our water and wastewater facilities,” should be or should have been prior to signing the contract. Other CSD costs could also potentially be the source of needed funds. It is incongruous that, during a period in which many of the Discovery Bay CSD consumers are experiencing fixed or declining incomes, the CSD requests increases that will most certainly make matters worse for many. The behavior of governmental and quasi-governmental agencies should reflect the required behavior of its constituents. Manage your affairs in such a way that allows you to stay within your budget.

Thanks for memorable Memorial Editor: Again the Byron-BrentwoodKnightsen Union Cemetery District would like to extend its appreciation to all of the civic groups that made this year’s Memorial Day celebration a success. This annual event was revived in

1989 when the American Legion, Roy Frerich’s Post 202 dedicated a Veterans’ Memorial erected on the cemetery grounds. The district is very appreciative of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Charles McCurtain Post 10789 for hosting the celebration. They were assisted by various community leaders and clergy and by two local Boy Scout (BSA) Troops 90 and 93. This was especially eventful with a flyover of a Coast Guard rescue plane. This year’s music was provided by the Liberty Union High School orchestra and by four singing groups from that school’s choral department. Prior to the actual event, American Legion Post 202, assisted by the Knightsen 4-H and other community volunteers, placed individual, miniature American flags on the graves of veterans interred at the cemetery. And, the Young Men and Young Women groups of the Brentwood Wards 1 and 3 of the LDS Church helped prepare the cemetery by cleaning and ensuring that the minute details at the cemetery were looked after. Memorial Day in East Contra Costa County has truly become a community event. Many thank-yous to our area volunteers. Mark R. White District Manager BBK Union Cemetery District

Fox from page 23A earned the BVAL’s MVP award while averaging 18 points and better than two steals per contest. Next year, she’ll be playing basketball at Fresno State University. For her efforts, Fox was named The Press’ Female Athlete of the Year. “I really like the coaches there,” said Fox. “I also like the team and the league they play in. I fit in really well with the system they run. I want to win there, and after that, hopefully go play overseas. I don’t really care where. I am not going to be picky.” In addition to playing basketball, Fox also ran track for three of her four years as a Wolverine. Since during her year off from running her endurance on the court suffered, she believes her time on the track team has helped her as a basketball player. While her scholarship was in basketball, Fox was also an integral part of the Deer Valley track team. Along with fellow seniors Erica Wilson, Joy Gee and Darnella Jenkins, Fox

finished eighth in the state 4x400-meter relay race. Individually, she also won the BVAL championships in the 400-meter race and later qualified for the NCS Meet of Champions in the same event. “Raven is just a competitor,” said Bernard Stephens, who was Fox’s track coach. “She has such a strong will. She took her junior year off from track, came back out her senior year and didn’t miss a beat. Whatever Raven decides to do, she is just driven.” Fox’s senior season on the basketball court featured one major transition. While her teammates between her junior and senior years were largely the same, her coach for the first three years, Lindsay Wisely, left to fill the women’s coaching opening at Las Positas College. Replacing her was Mark Anger. Without Wisely, Fox felt she needed to step up her role as a leader. The 2011 team went 10-0 in league play and qualified for see Fox page 25A

Most of all, he’ll remember how Baldazo took it all in stride. “He was very strong, but just real quiet,” Chappel said of Baldazo, named The Press’ Male Athlete of the Year. “Really kind of an unassuming-type kid. He practiced hard and did what he was supposed to do.” Baldazo’s character became evident to the coach as a freshman. After qualifying for the California Interscholastic Federation meet in his first year, Lions coaches and athletes were ecstatic for the young grappler. While they were cheering, high-fiving and clapping it up, Baldazo just took a seat on the nearest bench and unwrapped a granola bar. Why celebrate this win? There’s still a tournament to get ready for, he figured. “There was another time to make weight again,” Baldazo said. “I’m just humble.” While Baldazo’s high school career started with fanfare – he took second place in his first tournament for Liberty – it also ended

nicely. This fall, he claimed a North Coast Section title in an 8-1 decision over Dublin’s Nate Vincent. His winning streak didn’t stop there. At the state meet, Baldazo was victorious in his first four matches, over Alisal’s Jovan Villalobos, Isiah Morfin of Selma, Brandon Sotomayor of Centennial and Buchanan’s Damien Arredondo. Ranked fourth in the state, Baldazo lost in a hard-fought finals battle to California’s top 145-pound wrestler, junior Jake Elliot of Oakmont. “He just was a gamer,” Chappel said. “I think he would’ve been a hell of a football player and maybe a great cross country runner.” Chappel credited Baldazo’s calm demeanor for his success on the mat. Whereas some wrestlers can let one bad match haunt them through a tournament, Baldazo rarely let his emotions pin him. If he didn’t perform see Baldazo page 25A

Local little leagues wrap up seasons Correspondent Both the East County and Antioch Little Leagues wrapped up their championship matches last weekend. In each case, the winning team from each competitive division moves on to the District Tournament of Champions later this month. Only three of the ECLL’s final games were decided by more than two runs. Two of those were the last two championship games, played in the highest divisions in baseball and softball. The Golden Bears defeated Team Strikeforce 29-13 in the Major softball final. The other came in the Major baseball final, when the Astros beat the top-seeded Phillies 11-6, scoring five runs in the top half of the sixth inning to pull away in what was a highly spirited game. “It’s been an awesome experience,” said ECLL President Cary Dyer. “We didn’t have any number-one seeds knocked off until today, but all week has been one-run games with classic finishes. Our league is just really pumped up right now.” The only other ECLL championship game decided by more than one run came in the AA baseball final, when the Yankees beat the Padres 13-11. In the junior baseball division, the A’s beat the Giants 7-6 and the Cardinals beat the A’s 3-2. The softball games were just as close, as the Heaters defeated the Rebels 14-13 to win the senior softball division, and the Pink Panthers defeated team No Fear 9-8 to win the AAA crown. Also noteworthy is the district’s All-Star Tournament, which starts in early July after the Tournament of Champions – hosted by the ECLL for the first time. Antioch’s Little League also finished a successful regular season. The Marlins completed the regular sea-

son 12-3 to win the minor softball division, while the Twins went 20-0 to win their third straight major championship. Play in the senior division wraps up this week, the White Sox currently in first place. In baseball, the junior minor championship was claimed by the Rangers, who capped off a perfect season and beat the Tigers 14-11. The Yankees went 154 in the minor division but fell behind 7-0 against the Nationals in their final. The Yankees chipped away and eventually won 10-9 in extra innings. The major championship was a pitchers’ duel that saw the Bears combination of Evan Schneiderman and Jona Rodriguez beat the Fireballs’ Jordon Luis. Like the ECLL, Antioch’s champions will move on to the District 4 Tournament of Champions. Antioch Little Executive Vice President League Dennis Felix feels confident the league’s teams will show well. “They should have very good success in the D-4 tournament,” said Felix. “Overall, from what we’ve seen, Antioch Little League is fielding some very strong teams this year. They should represent Antioch with a lot of pride.” On Sunday, Antioch’s Challenger Program, which gives young special-needs athletes an opportunity to step to the plate, took the field for its All-Star game. Players from the three teams – A’s, Giants and Mariners – were divided into two teams for the final game of the season. Afterward, coaches hosted a pizza party and trophy ceremony for the Challenger Little Leaguers. “It’s just an opportunity for them to feel the joy of what a regular Little Leaguer gets when they come up to bat,” Challenger Vice President Juanita Garrison said. “It was really special for them, an ending to a really, really good season.” For more photos, visit www.thepress.net.

Diablos mount a title The Contra Costa Diablos AAU basketball team represented East County by winning the championship title at the recent Northwest Sports Reno Memorial Day Tournament. The Diablos took on players from California and Nevada in the Varsity, Under 1,000 Division, defeating hoop squads from Santa Rosa, McKinleyville and Galena of Reno in the opening rounds. The Diablos got past Colfax in the semifinal and brought home the hardware with a victory over Folsom in the finals. The Contra Costa Diablos scored roughly 400 points throughout their five games while keeping their opponents to about 50 points per game. “Before our first game I let my players know that we didn’t travel all this way to play poorly, and our guys responded,”

wrote head coach Jared Wilson in an email. Wilson also leads the Heritage High junior varsity boys basketball team. “I’ve been coaching for nine seasons and I’ve never seen a five-game stretch like that before,” he added. “Each game, each player played better and better, whether that (meant) grabbing a few more rebounds a game, dishing a couple extra assists or scoring a few more buckets.” Wilson also credited his defense with clutch performances, despite the team’s “bigs” being overmatched at times. Team members are Dorian Hardy, David Nelson, Kyle Grant, Travis Pacos, Brouk Bekele, Josh Ned, Bryce Niccolocia and Kyle Farinas.

Paddle for Fame seeks new record Discovery Bay is preparing to break its own world record for the Largest Man-powered Boat Raft-up/Flotilla, and the public is invited along for the ride. On Saturday, June 25, the fifth annual Paddle for Fame event takes place at the Discovery Bay Yacht Harbor. Fly-over photo verification is scheduled for 1:30 p.m., and several flyovers are planned to ensure the scene is captured and recorded.

“We’re planning to beat last year’s record and we’re looking forward to a great day,” said event organizer Amanda Dove. Paddle for Fame currently holds the Guinness World record for the Longest Paddleboat Raft-up and the World Record Academy’s record for Largest Man-powered Boat Raft-up/Flotilla. The World Record Academy will recognize the winner by photo

Rates from page 1A year and $90.47 in 2012-13. “I was pleased that the board recognized some of the long-term capital needs of the district and has begun appropriately planning for those needs,” said Town General Manager Rick Howard. “Water rates are dependent upon our annual costs to operate the district in an efficient and cost-efficient manner. We’ve had to make some difficult decisions this year because we don’t want to fall behind the eight ball in our ability, among other things, to treat domestic water and continue to comply with state guidelines.” Current residential sewer and water rates show Dis-

confirmation and signatures of two officials. Every man-powered kayak, paddleboat, paddleboard and canoe must be connected in the raft-up at the time of the fly-over. Last year, more than 1,000 water mavens came to witness or participate in the world-record phenomenon that drew 388 paddle-powered vessels. The Paddle for Fame event is free and open to the public, and features activities

covery Bay is still below many other area districts. The monthly total for Brentwood comes in at $98.58; $102.50 for Oakley. Pittsburg’s monthly combined total is $105.15 and Livermore’s is close behind at $104.42. Based on a two-year ratepayer study, the original proposal from Hornberger Engineering called for an acrossthe-board 22-percent combined water and sewer increase this year, followed by a 13.6-percent raise in 2012-13. The goals of the rate development program are to assist in funding the two-year revenue requirements of the town, including operating expenses, capital improvements and replacement funding; recover costs as they relate to Proposition 218; and develop an updated rate structure for each

Food and wine will be plentiful, vendors will be on hand, and the Discovery Bay Chamber of Commerce will conduct a business expo, free concert on the green and special performance by Bay Area Sky Divers. “This year’s event is dedicated to the memory of Harbormaster Jeff Dawson, who helped to make this event a success year after year,” said Dove. “He is missed tremendously.”

system. “I know that 22 percent was certainly a number that was difficult to reach,” said Howard. “And I think that given the circumstances, 17 percent is appropriate … The board made some difficult decisions but protected our critical infrastructure relative to continued water and wastewater treatment.” CSD Board Director Ray Tetreault was pleased with the final results. “I think as a board we made some good decisions,” said Tetreault. “We were able to shave 5 percent off the original recommendation – and I think that is a good day.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

eBART from page 1A become a reality. “Criminals don’t know boundaries, so it’s very important for us to work together, share information, share resources and back each other up,” Rainey said. “We don’t want the City of Antioch to bear the burden of our policing responsibility, and vice versa.” To further promote safety, BART plans to place 38 closed-circuit TV cameras throughout the station and parking lot. A public address system originating in transit headquarters in Oakland will allow a BART officer keep an eye on the Antioch station and warn potential wrong-doers that they’re being monitored. Antioch City Council members were pleasantly surprised that their constructive criticisms were taken into consideration in this latest proposal. Included in the newest plans are two public restrooms and space for a future escalator, should the funding for one materialize, and a shaded parking area equipped with solar panels. The council voted 4-0 in favor of approving the station’s design. Councilman Brian Kalinowski was out of town. “What we all want is a clean and safe BART station, and I think you’ve committed to doing that,” Councilman Wade Harper said. “No plan is perfect. This is not perfect, but I think it’s good.” The proposed eBART station would link East County to the rest of the Bay

The latest proposal for the planned eBART station at Hillcrest Avenue in Antioch includes a station agent, public restrooms and 38 security cameras. Area. There would be a transfer point at the Pittsburg/Bay Point station, a stop at Railroad Avenue in Pittsburg and an endof-the-line station at Hillcrest Avenue. Trains would run in sync with the traditional BART schedule, namely 4 a.m. to 1 a.m. on weekdays and in 15-minute intervals. Rattray noted that the diesel, multiple-unit cars running between Hillcrest and Pittsburg/Bay Point can reach speeds of 75 miles per hour, similar to a tradition-

al BART train. However, not everyone was pleased with BART’s proposal. Richard Mossman, president of the Antioch Democratic Club, said that council should reject this project unless it’s 100-percent thrilled with what it entails. He noted that his organization has and will continue to oppose the eBART project until the transit managers return with plans for a station worthy of Antioch.

Though BART is working with CalTrans now to prepare the Highway 4 median for the train lines, it would take roughly five years for the eBART station to be functional. “I was initially skeptical about some of the issues that were outstanding at the time,” Councilman Gary Agopian said, “but I’m very pleased we received a listening ear.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Feather hair extensions are one of the hottest trends this summer.

Lori Lopez, owner of Wild Orchids the Salon in Antioch, has been managing manes and hypnotizing hair for 35 years, but she’s never seen a trend take off quite like feather extensions, a style popularized by Tyler earlier this year. “Featherlocks have been around for a few years, but no one really knew about them until Steven Tyler stepped out with this huge feather in his hair,” Lopez said. “It got people’s attention. It’s very rock ’n’ roll. People started going to salons asking how they can get that look. ‘American Idol’ started up in January and by February this trend was like wildfire.” Lopez said clients ask about feather extensions on a daily basis, and the best part about the new trend is that applying the ON THE COVER: Ken and Jennifer Challberg, owners of California Fitness 24/7, are working to make customers’ fitness goals more attainable.

extensions is easy, painless and takes a matter of minutes to complete. The toughest part is figuring out what style you want. Lopez has feathers in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Some are thin and blend naturally with hair; others are wide and feature a bold color that makes the feather pop in the coiffe. Either way, installation is easy. Glue is applied to the quills of the feathers, which is then attached to a hair extension bead laced into the hair and see Feather page 11B

“This is what a real pharmacy should be like,” said Raniwala, the store’s other pharmacist. “Its patients should feel comfortable. A lot of patients have our cell phone numbers. It helps them have confidence in us.” Boss echoed the sentiment: “We want to be approachable. We want them to look at us as being a friend. We’re the only old-time, community-type pharmacy in the area.” Business manager Suarez also emphasized the store’s welcoming ambience. see Pharmacy page 8B

“The Uncensored Message that My Wife Asked Me Not to Write…” Dear friend, Well, at first, my wife asked me not to write this. We had a big discussion about it. Finally, she understood what I was trying to do, and actually helped me write this letter to you. Here’s the thing. In my office, most of the people that come in to see me tell me they’ve “tried everything.” They’ve had “every” test, wound up with huge medical bills, and are still no better off. Often, they’ve been subjected to medications that have only served to temporarily mask symptoms. That’s not what most people are looking for. Health, or the lack of it, very often has simple causes, and very reasonable corrections. That’s what I’m going to tell you about. But, before I tell you more, let me tell you something about me… I remember it like it was yesterday. I’m the “athletic type” and like most young guys, I think that nothing can go wrong. That’s when I’m hit with a dose of reality. I’m playing basketball when it happens. As I’m going for a rebound, I get pushed. I land hard on my lower back and feel a ‘pop’. But, there’s more… I’m in so much pain that I can barely move. I go to see my medical doctor, but all he can do is give me drugs for the pain. But, that doesn’t help. Three weeks later I’m still in pain. I’m frustrated and scared that I may never play sports again. Now, listen to this… A friend of mine convinces me to give his doctor a try. This new doctor does an exam, takes some films, and then ‘adjusts’ my spine. The adjustment doesn’t hurt, it actually feels good. I get relief, and within a

week, I feel much better! Oh, did I mention that this doctor is a chiropractor? Chiropractic works so well for me, and I’m so impressed with the other ‘miracles’ I see in his office, that I eventually go to chiropractic school myself. And that’s how it happened! Back to what my wife (at first) didn’t want me to write. It’s that chiropractic is one of the biggest “secrets” in health care. Few people (relatively, only 10% have been to a chiropractor) know about it. And, many of the rest could be helped, if they only knew the true story. So, I often feel like shouting it from the mountaintop! Is that “professional?” Well, maybe it is, or maybe not. But, I’ve decided people should know. For the last eleven years, people from Brentwood and the surrounding area have come to see me with their back problems. They also come to me with their: • Headaches • Migraines • Chronic pain • Neck pain • Shoulder/arm pain • Whiplash from car accidents • Carpal tunnel syndrome • Hip pain • Elbow pain • Numbness in limbs • Athletic injuries just to name a few… Here’s what some of your neighbors had to say: “During my pregnancy, I suffered from low back pain and sciatica. Dr. Jardin helped me become pain free!” (Kim M.)

“I had neck pain, tingling and numbness in my arms and hands. Thanks to Dr. Jardin, the pain is gone. I feel great!” (Diane W.) “I suffered with constant TMJ pain and headaches with dizziness. I spent over 25 years trying different things to help and Dr. Jardin’s adjustments have been the most effective!” (Patti W.)

Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I can’t really take the credit. The truth is that I’ve never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure, and the body responds by healing itself. Of course, all people respond differently to care, but we get terrific results. It’s as simple as that! Exciting Offer – Look, I know you’re smart. You want to get to the cause of your problem, and not just cover it up with drugs. When you are one of the first 20 people to call and schedule a new patient exam (by July 1, 2011) you’ll receive that entire exam for $37. That’s with consultation, exam, any necessary x-rays, full report of my findings…. the whole ball of wax, and there’s no hidden fees. But, call right away because we expect to be flooded with calls as this exam normally costs $249. Again, there’s only 20 of these slots, so don’t miss out (by law, this offer excludes Medicare/ Medicaid beneficiaries).

Great care at a great fee…Please, I hope that there’s no misunderstanding about quality of care just because I have a lower exam fee. You’ll get great care at a great fee. My qualifications…I’m a graduate of Western States Chiropractic. I’ve been entrusted to take care of tiny babies to entire families. For the past eleven years, I’ve been taking care of your neighbors in Brentwood. I just have that low exam fee to help more people who need care. My assistants are Morgan and Esmeralda, and they are both really great people. Our office is both friendly and warm and we try our best to make you feel at home. We have a wonderful service, at an exceptional fee. Our office is called JARDIN FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC and it’s at 7351-A Brentwood Boulevard (we are across the parking lot from McDonald’s, next to the Dollar Store). Our phone number is 925-516-5813. Call Morgan, Esmeralda, or me today for an appointment. We can help you. Thank you and God Bless. -Dan Jardin, D.C. P.S. When accompanied by the first, I am also offering the second family member this same examination for only $27. P.P.S. Can you imagine not having to wait at a doctor’s office? Well, your time is as valuable as mine. That’s why we have a no-wait policy. You will be seen within minutes of your appointment. P.P.P.S. Of course, all people respond differently to care. -Advertisement

Crosley Gracie means more than martial arts JUSTIN LAFFERTY

W

hat started out as a shared studio space and a dream has now

become one of the largest martial arts academies in the East Bay. Mixed Martial Arts fighter Crosley Gracie, a member of the famed Gracie family known for founding Brazilian jiu-jitsu, was able to open his 7,000-square-foot academy at 3291 Walnut Blvd. in Brentwood in 2008 after subleasing

a nearby space for a few years. Opening an academy where he could teach his family’s methods to others had been a longtime goal for the Rio de Janeiro native. Since its inception, the Crosley Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy has taken root and grown. The academy trains athletes of all ages and body types in jiu-jitsu as well as muay Thai kickboxing. Adults and kids who train at the academy have gone on to fight for the gold at tournaments throughout the state. Brazilian jiu-jitsu, an art largely started by Crosley’s grandfather, the late Carlos Gracie, teaches see Crosley Gracie page 7B

“We’re really friendly,” she said. “We’re comfortable with our customers, and it’s family-oriented.” Customers often begin chatting with the staff and each other during the brief 15 minutes it takes to fill a prescription and keep conversing after they’ve received their medication. “An hour later, they’re still there,” she laughed. Boss and Raniwala met at the University of the Pacific, Stockton pharmacy school, though they later found they had been competitors when both worked at nearby hotels. They went their separate ways until 2008, when Raniwala noticed that Pittsburg was ripe for an independent pharmacy. He called Boss and the two opened their first location in August of 2008. Raniwala had worked with Suarez before and invited her to join him at the Pittsburg pharmacy. This year, all three of them launched a new store in Brentwood. According to Suarez, their unique backgrounds have influenced the format of their pharmacy. “Steve’s military background means everything must be in line,” she said. “It makes the business run efficiently. Saifi brings that personable warmth and comfort,” in addition to an entrepreneurial spirit. One of the greatest challenges faced by independent pharmacies is the misconception that their products cost more – even for customers with prescription insurance – than those of larger pharmacies. “It’s not true,” said Raniwala. “Their co-pay here is the same as anywhere else.” “The only difference is the customer

service,” said Suarez. City Center Pharmacy offers a special service called prescription compounding. Doctors can write a prescription of several medications in different amounts, and the pharmacy will make a single pill or cream instead of providing multiple pills. Because customers are forced to drive to Concord to get prescription compounding, Raniwala, Boss and Suarez are happy to provide it locally. The service allows pills to be replaced by creams or sprays, or by lollipops or gummies for kids. The pharmacy also sells medication for dogs, cats, horses and other animals, and can create prescriptions in chicken, lamb or beef flavors. The store also offers over-the-counter medications, diabetes equipment, mobility devices such as walkers, plus free programs such as prescription delivery to local areas, needle disposal containers for diabetics and disposal of leftover medications. City Center Pharmacy can also package medications separately, printed with times and dates, to help patients remember to take them. The owners also contribute to community service programs such as Meals on Wheels and fallprevention programs at retirement homes. City Center Pharmacy is located at 50 Eagle Rock Way, Suite C in Brentwood, off Balfour Road near the Highway 4 Bypass. Spanish translation is available. Store hours are Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; closed Sundays.

According to Gamon, one thing that sets Diablo Vista apart is its fullservice dental care.

ing. Lopez buys her feathers from Condition Culture, which sells its high-quality feathers only to salons, but charges only $6 per feather – a bargain compared to the typical wholesale price of $10 to $15. Lopez keeps the prices low as a way to draw new customers to her salon. For her returning customers, it’s a new way to change up a look without doing anything extreme, such as cutting and coloring. To remove the extension, clients may either return to the salon for extraction or pinch the hair bead with pliers to pop it open and remove the extension. Lopez recommends that clients keep their feathers in case they’d like to wear them again. If you’d rather try the trend on your own, there are companies that sell feathers and the necessary tools. But you’ll pay hundreds for a pack of authentic rooster feathers, the most common feather used to create this style. Go to Sephora, located inside the JCPenny in Antioch, and Sultra feather extensions will cost you only $25 for three. Feather extensions can also be found at www.etsy.com, a website dedicated to the sale of unique handmade fashions. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

pressed closed to hold it in place. As long as hair is cared for properly, the feather extension should stay in place for up to four months. “It’s so simple,” Lopez said. “And the best part is that the featherlock is like any hair extension. You can wash it, dry it, curl it and flat iron it without damaging it. As long as you don’t pull on it, the feather will stay in place.” Lopez believes the simplicity is what draws a wide range of customers to her salon. She’s applied feathers to children and grandmas alike. “Older women really like this trend. It’s a way to do something wild without going too far. It makes them feel young.” Joelle Garner, a mother of three from Brentwood, tried feather extensions in April on a dare from a girlfriend and loves the new look. “At first I thought I was going to look silly, but the feather extensions are really fun. I got brown feathers so that it blends with my hair, but I might get new ones after these come out. Maybe I’ll be a little braver and try blue or green.” While the easy application and variety of feathers makes this trend popular with women of all ages, the price is also appeal-

MILESTONES

OBITUARIES Rachel Inez Wright May 10, 1920-May 16, 2011 Rachel Inez Wright passed away peacefully in Alameda with her children by her side. She was blessed with a full and beautiful life of which faith, family, and stewardship were the most important elements. She will be truly missed and her memory treasured. Her loving spirit will always be in our hearts. Rachel Inez Cason was born in Burns City, Cooke County, Texas, the youngest of seven children on a family farm. Survival depended on a strong work ethic, which Rachel embraced throughout her life, evidenced by her abundant rose and vegetable garden for 50 years in Oakley. An accomplished cook and seamstress, she tailored much of the family’s clothing and will always be remembered for her nurturing meals “seasoned with love” and her incomparable homemade pies. A natural caregiver, Rachel worked as a nurse’s aide and was also active in the First Baptist Church of Antioch and Oakley Community Baptist Church. Preceded in death in 1977 by her devoted husband, Elvie JT Wright, Rachel is survived by her loving children, Thomas Wayne (Cora) Wright, Marilyn Wright, Barbara (Dan) Ouellet, and Tim (Jill)

Wright; and cherished grandsons, Adam, Jonathan, Jared, Andrew, and Taylor. She is also survived by her sister, Dola Lemons, of Gainesville, Texas; childhood friend and sister-in-law, Nathalea Bryant of Oakdale; and many nieces and nephews. Memorial Service are to be held at Brentwood Funeral Home on Saturday, June 25 at 11 a.m. Donations may be made in Rachel’s memory to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, or to the charity or school of your choice.
