Record numbers float their boats by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

It’s official. Discovery Bay residents this week broke their own world record for collecting and connecting the most man-powered paddle-powered vessels in one location, proving yet again that the Live Where You Play community knows how to have a good time. “We destroyed the record,” said Organizer Amanda Dove of the June 25 event. “We have certified the count to be officially 492. (Last year’s tally was 388.) I’m thrilled at the participation, especially the stand-up paddle boarders, who represented their new sport with more than 100 strong. Kayaks, paddleboats and inflatable vessels filled out the crowd.”

The official numbers were verified by the World Record Academy via photos captured by aerial photographer Leila Hauck and pilot Bryon Graves. The fifth annual event, sponsored by local boardwalk merchants, featured not only the water challenge, but entertainment by Excelsior Middle School band Sucker Punch. “Paddle for Fame is Discovery Bay’s best party of the year,” added Dove. “Sure, it’s silly fun, but why not? It’s a free day out on the water and a great way to mix with your community on a beautiful, happy day.” Not to be outdone – by themselves – Delta dwellers participated later that day in see Float page 22A

Bypass interchange gets green light by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

Though Highway 4 Bypass officials were hoping for $33 million from the state to build an interchange at Sand Creek Road, they’re pleased with the $25 million in Corridor Mobility Improvement Account money they were able to take home for the project. As members of the Highway 4 Bypass Authority and other local officials headed down to a California Department of Transportation meeting in Long Beach recently, they were optimistic that they could secure $33 million to turn the intersection at Sand Creek Road in Brentwood into a gridlock-eliminating interchange similar to those at Laurel Road and Lone Tree Way. The intersection of the Bypass and Sand Creek Road is currently managed by traffic signals.

The Highway 4 Bypass has received a $25 million boost in state funding, enough to turn the Sand Creek Road intersection, above, into an interchange. The project was at the top of the list of many Northern California highway improvements under consideration for state funds at that meeting. However, according to Oakley Mayor Jim Frazier, CalTrans decided to

lem at that intersection. “No one wishes to be sitting on a freeway in traffic when they could be at home with their families,” Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor said. “This is really, in a way, a godsend. All the stars are aligning and the alignment is a good thing, with a full moon.” Frazier said that a project for bridges on Highway 101 through Petaluma was entered late, and also taken into consideration when CalTrans was divvying up money for highway improvements. The Bypass Authority will be able to use savings from the widening of Highway 4 to bridge the gap for the Sand Creek interchange. Other than that, Frazier noted that other costs could be covered by East Contra Costa Regional Fee and Financing Authority funds, a virtual musee Bypass page 22A

He’s escorted more than 200 soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines home from venues all over the world, but this time around, Oakley’s Fred “Spike” Schau was the package. “Package” is the term the Warrior Watch Riders (WWR) veterans motorcycle group uses to refer to the service members they honor with escorts and welcome home celebrations. The Northern California State Coordinator for the WWR, Schau last week surrendered his customary spot at the front of the convoy and assumed the place of honor after being named Veteran of the Year for Assembly District 15 by Assemblywoman Joan Buchanan. It was largely because of his work honoring other veterans that made Schau a natural choice. “In a way, we’re honoring them all,” Buchanan said as the 30 flag-bedecked bikes surrounding Schau rolled into the parking lot last Thursday. Although many veterans are eligible for the honor, she said, “I can tell you, it didn’t take very long (to decide on Schau). I don’t think there’s a better patriot in our country than Spike. He loves the country, he loves people, and he understands service.” Boatswain Mate 2nd Class Petty Officer Schau, an active Navy reservist, has accumulated nearly 20 years in the Navy

Oakley balances budget by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Budgeting can be stressful for some cities, but Oakley’s City Council once again praised Finance Director Paul Abelson’s meticulous money management that will keep the city operating with a minimum 20-percent reserve during the 2011-12 fiscal year. The Oakley Council approved the budget 4-0 (Councilwoman Carol Rios was absent) following a 20-minute discussion at Tuesday’s meeting. As estimated revenue comes to $12.9 million and proposed expenditures total $12.5 million, the General Fund budget is balanced. New councilmember Randy Pope said he easily understood the 151-page document, thanks to Abelson’s attention to detail, and recommended that members of the public take a look at document to get a better understanding of how the city works. “As the new guy, I’m not tooting my own horn – I’ve been here for only six months and 28 days, but the fact that this city is a leader economically is a testament to our staff and the leadership they exhibit in running a tight ship,” Pope said during deliberation. Pope was also pleased to be a part of a council that collectively receives $28,544 in salary and meeting fees compared to similarly populated Pleasant Hill, which pays its council members $37,950, and Martinez, which pays its representatives $46,200. To show that Oakley representatives serve their city at minimal cost to the taxpayers, Mayor Jim Frazier asked that next year’s

budget show a breakdown of salaries for each councilmember. He also said he would ask for his pay to be reduced by 50 percent, with the designated money going back into the city’s General Fund. “I want to thank staff for cutting back on the unessentials, making things work, tightening up where we have to, (and) multitasking,” Frazier said. “It’s very much appreciated from all of you that make this budget work. We’re one of the few cities in the Bay Area that have been able to be streamlined and make sure that it’s moving forward. We’re utilizing the people’s money well.” Of the new capital-improvement projects scheduled for the new fiscal year, Frazier said he’s most proud of finding the funds and location to build the city’s highly anticipated all-abilities playground. While the project was initially proposed to be built at the Moura property on O’Hara Avenue, when General Manager Bryan Montgomery mentioned last month that the play structures at Crockett Park needed to be replaced, Frazier realized it was the ideal site for the all-abilities playground, which has been budgeted at $250,000. While the budget continues the one-day per month unpaid furlough program and City Hall closures for the full week of Thanksgiving plus two weeks during the end of December holidays, it also includes a 3-percent increase in salaries to city employees, offsetting a small portion of the salary reductions and increased pension contributions that have been in effect for what will be the third year.

After resolving a five-year legal battle with the Greenbelt Alliance over the loss of farmland, the City of Oakley received the green light last week to begin development in the East Cypress Corridor, left.

Agreement settles Cypress lawsuit by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

The City of Oakley announced this week that an agreement has been reached with Greenbelt Alliance following a five-year legal battle over agricultural land in the East Cypress Corridor. When in 2006 the Oakley City Council approved the East Cypress Corridor Specific Plan, which proposes the creation of 3,600 homes plus parks, schools and lakes on the 2,546-acre parcel, the Greenbelt Alliance opposed the plan, claiming that it didn’t effectively mitigate the loss of agricultural land. A Contra Costa County Superior Court judge ruled in 2009 that the plan’s environmental impact report was incomplete and directed the city to

provide adequate mitigation for the farmland to be lost. Under an agreement reached on June 22, a fund will be established with the San Francisco Foundation to provide grants to further protect similar agriculture land in far East County and other regions of the Delta. Approximately $6.8 million will be redistributed to the region as developers’ fees are collected. “The resolution of this issue is a tremendous achievement for the City of Oakley,” wrote City Manager Bryan Montgomery in a press release issued Monday. “The goal of the Cypress Corridor plan is to preserve the most valuable Delta agricultural lands by concentrating development in less productive areas, see Suit page 7A

Gromm chronicled, made history by John VanLandingham Correspondent

Bob Gromm was a man of many hats but only one face. But that one face could often be found poking into myriad East Contra Costa community activities and events over the last 50plus years that Gromm lived on Bethel Island. Among the many hats worn by Gromm, who died June 18 at the age of 93, were yacht harbor owner, hospital district director, ROBERT GROMM fair board mem1918-2011 ber, fire commissioner, businessman, newspaper editor, book author, government watchdog, and historian. Gromm wrote a lengthy history of Bethel Island, served as the editor of a weekly newspaper (the Brentwood News), wrote articles for various publications, managed a business – Prince Harbor on Dutch Slough – and outlived two wives. An important piece of his legacy is the unfinished John Marsh State Park outside of Brentwood. Marsh, Contra Costa County’s first white settler, was considered responsible for much of the early settlement of Northern California thanks to letters he wrote to friends back

east extolling the wonders of this area. He was murdered in 1856, and his seven-gabled stone mansion outside current-day Brentwood fell into disrepair. Gromm, appalled at the neglect of Marsh’s legacy, mobilized East Contra Costa residents to form the John Marsh Historical Memorial Association. Gromm lobbied legislators and ran fundraisers to generate money and community attention. “At least they (the state) could put a roof over it to keep it from deteriorating any further,” he told a reporter during a tour 40 years ago. Banging around in many an East Contra Costa dresser drawer is a brass belt buckle with the Marsh House likeness on it, sold by Gromm or another association member for the restoration project. Frustrated but never discouraged, Gromm and fellow Marsh Home advocates persisted in hectoring state and local officials to restore the home. Kathy Leighton of the East Contra Costa Historical Society credits Gromm’s determination for the as-yet-unopened park. “That house would not be standing but for Bob,” she said. A complete list of Gromm’s community achievements and involvement, compiled by Leighton, runs a full page, spanning the time he came to Bethel Island from San Francisco with his first wife, the late Dorothy Ann Robinson. Some of the highlights include service on the Contra Costa County Fair Board of Directors, reclamation district director, Bethel Island Citizen of the Year 1999-2000, East Contra Costa Historical Society Member of

the Year 1998-99, business owner, chairman of the Ironhouse Sanitary District, board member Delta Memorial Hospital Association, Bethel Island Fire District commissioner and numerous others. A San Francisco boy, Gromm attended Balboa High School and attended San Francisco City College. When World War II erupted, he enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps and served as an aviation cadet instructor at Williams Field in Mesa, Ariz. In 1960, Gromm moved to Bethel Island, settling on 587 feet of waterfront on Dutch Slough, eventually known as Prince Harbor. After Dorothy’s death in 1994, Gromm married Margaret Hotchkiss Cox, who also preceded him in death. He is survived by a son, Robert Jr.; daughter -in-law, Grace; and daughter, Claudia Cannata; four grandchildren, Jeffrey Cannata, Courtney Bishop (Patrick), Evan Chang-Siu (Kaori), Eric Chang-Gromm; and three great grandsons, Breck Bishop, Liam Bishop and Kenta Siu. Gromm requested that there be no services and that donations in his memory be made to the East Contra Costa Historical Society, P.O. Box 202, Brentwood, CA 94513. Two years ago, Gromm declared he was retiring from many community activities, expressing the hope to a reporter he would see the Marsh home restored “before I’m no longer vertical.” In that interview, Gromm said, “I’ve had an interesting life. I’m proud to have been able to be of assistance.”

Suit from page 4A and to use development as an economic engine to pay for key projects to improve public safety, the environment and quality-of-life for Delta residents.” Representatives from the Greenbelt were also pleased with the agreement. Greenbelt Alliance Executive Director Jeremy Madsen said the alliance is excited about the settlement, as it sets an example for other cities that preserving agricultural land should be and is a priority in the Bay Area. “In the race to protect our remaining farms, forests and watersheds, every acre counts,” wrote Greenbelt Alliance Senior Field Representative Matt Vander Sluis in a press release. “The settlement is a reminder that each decision we make about growth in the Bay Area must be done with an eye toward how it

affects the environment and our own quality of life.” Now that the East Cypress Corridor Specific Plan has been given the green light, the city may begin preparations for the development, which will include levee reconstruction and improvements, a new clean water program that will eliminate the release of untreated agricultural run-off and animal waste into the Delta, and the improvement of rural, local and regional roads and interchanges. “The social and environmental benefits included in this plan are incredible,” Montgomery said. “The project will bring diverse housing opportunities protected by enhanced flood-control systems, create and preserve wetlands and wildlife habitats, provide parks and schools, and support the county’s Habitat Conservation Plan.”

For Bank of America, they weren’t as forthcoming with details, but a fairly highlyplaced executive told me that if someone has an interest-only loan, BofA will calculate their payment based on it being principal-reducing for the purposes of calculating their debt ratio. For Wells Fargo, I couldn’t get a direct answer to my question, so I can’t give you their official policy. But I’ve had MANY clients with interest-only and/or ARM loans with Wells where they are using the minimum payment and saying, “You can afford to make the minimum payment, so we don’t need to modify your loan.” In my mind, an interest-only (or below-market ARM) is not the “real” payment, so I wish they would look at a principal-reducing payment like Chase and BofA does. (If anyone from Wells wants to correct me on this, I’m all ears and I will post your response if it needs clarification.)

Last week I told you how to calculate your own debt ratio (or you can send your info to me and I’ll calculate it for you and send you back a worksheet). I explained that where this gets tricky is when you have an interest-only and/or ARM loan because your minimum payment may or may not even cover all the interest due or any principal. This week I’ll tell you how three of the biggest lenders handle this situation when they are considering you for a loan modification or short sale. Here is a quote from one Chase loan mod negotiator, “When we calculate the proposed ratio, it begins with a 30 year amortization on outstanding principal at current rate. Compared to validated income, we then start backing off the interest rate down in ¼% increments. On a HAMP situation if we get to 2% full PITI and still are over the 31% housing ratio, then we start extending the amortization in 5 year increments up to a maximum of 40 years. If we still aren’t at the 31% but within sight, we may then set aside into a “special forbearance” enough principal to make the 31% payment to income including PITI + HOA.”

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters Happy Half Year With June officially behind us we we’re officially half way through 2011… what a scary thought! In a moment of reflection how is this year treating you, or rather, how are you treating this year? Are you where you wanted to be when the year started, has your annual list of goals been cut in half with the first half of this year? Without going too deep into your personal life, as your lender, my most important question to you is this: Has your Federal Housing Administration (FHA) mortgage payment been made on time for a consecutive six months? It’s an important question as the history on your FHA mortgage payment is one of the only items checked when “streamlining” your FHA loan. According to the United States Housing and Urban Development (HUD) website, “FHA has permitted streamline refinances on insured mortgages since the early 1980’s. The “streamline” refers only to the amount of documentation and underwriting that needs to be performed by the lender.” In other words, if the rate on your FHA loan is 5.25% or higher, and you’ve made at least 6 months worth of on time and consecutive payments, an FHA Streamline refinance can only benefit you. The hard part was qualifying for the home; the easy part is quali-

fying for the Streamline refinance and saving money. Again referencing the federal government’s website, “Streamline refinances can be done without appraisals, but the new loan amount cannot exceed the original loan amount.” What a way to ring in the half year…a true no cost loan, insured by the federal government, that can be taken advantage of even if your house is “under water!” Coming full circle and reflecting on this year’s accomplishments…doesn’t everyone wish to have more money saved in December than they started with in January? Mid-year is a perfect time to reflect on where you’re at and where you are going. By taking advantage of a government program that has been around since the 1980s and refinancing your home into a rate that’s as low as they’ve been since the 1940’s you can only help your overall financial picture in 2011. Don’t let me write an article in December entitled “Year’s End” only to have you kicking yourself for not taking advantage of the potential savings while rates are still well under 5.0%!

The La Paloma High School Class of 2011 recently celebrated the end of the school year with commencement exercises held at Liberty High. Just over three dozen students completed the continuation high school this year, an achievement made all the more significant by the personal and scholastic challenges they met along the way. “It takes a lot of pushing and pulling to get through high school,� Superintendent Jerry Glenn told the students, praising the school’s staff for helping the class

reach graduation day. “I’ve been in every class in the district and I can tell you that some of the best teachers we have are at La Paloma.� According to class speaker Brandon Fratto, the struggles he and his classmates went through have positioned them for success in the future. “There is no such thing as success without mistakes,� he said. “I guess that means we’re ahead of the game.� The class is the last to attend the school’s Lone Tree Way campus. A brand new La Paloma on Guthrie Lane will be ready in time for the beginning of the new school year.

New Business Owners, are you confused about when your first taxes are due? It used to be really easy. If you set up a Corporation or Limited Liability Company (“LLC”), you paid your minimum tax payment of $800 to the California Franchise Tax Board 4 months and 15 days after you started. You made estimated quarterly or monthly payments to the IRS based on your estimated first year’s income. Well, most companies operated at a loss in their first year, so hardly anyone paid into the IRS, and everyone in California paid their $800 in their first quarter of doing business. If by the time of your first tax return, you were still operating at a loss, you paid your $800 for the next year to California. That’s all changed. LLC’s who wanted to be treated as a C Corporation will have to complete quarterly estimates and pay into the Franchise Tax Board accordingly. However, LLC’s who choose to be treated as a sole proprietor (for single member LLC’s) or partnerships (More than one member) still pay $800 per year as their minimum tax. Some corporations are subject to the minimum $800 tax (currently) as well. Minimum tax is the amount you must pay by the first quarter of each accounting period whether the corporation is active, operates at a loss, or does not do business. For new corporations that qualify or incorporate, the minimum tax is measured based on your income for the year and is subject to estimated requirements. For subsequent years, the minimum tax is $800. This means that if you are operating at a loss in your first year, you can wait until the next year to pay the $800. Of course with every set of rules there are exceptions, based on the industry you’re in, whether you’re going to make a profit your first year, how much of your revenue is derived in California and when you started your business. I have a “Pay me now, or pay me later” attitude about this topic. In the last month, I have had 3 new clients who wanted to “save money” by incorporating through an internet service like Legal Zoom end up paying more than if they had come to me in the first place. Starting a corporation or LLC is not a paper work shuffle. You are forming a legal entity that will have a significant impact on the way you operate your business. Take the time and do it right.

Stop the gerrymandering Editor: Here we go again with political schemes that created the gerrymandering districts that left Walnut Creek divided amongst three supervisorial districts after the last redistricting 10 years ago. In an eloquent doublespeak, District 4 Supervisor Karen Mitchoff argued that the map she favored is not personal or political, and that Walnut Creek suffered no ill effects as a result of the three-way split. I challenge Ms. Mitchoff to prove she believes her own argument. Show leadership and volunteer the equal division of Concord, your political base, and not some city in East County that has been the dumping ground and stepchild of Contra Costa. Unbiased redistricting establishes supervisorial districts reasonably equal in population while maintaining neighborhoods and communities of interest. Dividing any town or city is a contradiction to this goal. Please explain, Ms. Mitchoff (or Ms. Peipho), how Walnut Creek can be part of the East County neighborhood when the only land connection is a trek up Mount Diablo? Something is cooking and East County is on the menu. A supervisor not in favor of Plan 7 (which keeps neighborhoods and all cities intact) is not upholding the intent of the process and must be suspect of political maneuvering. Cynthia Ruehlig Antioch

three purchasing managers, three food service directors – not to mention duplication of support staff and duplication of building resources at each of the school districts offices in the form of lighting, heating and cooling. Together, all three districts have an approximate total enrollment of 19,700. To put that size into perspective, the Berkeley Unified School District is approximately 11,000 students, West Contra Costa Unified School District is approximately 23,000 students and the Mt. Diablo Unified School District has a student population of 36,500. Economies of scale dictate that a single unified school district be formed. It makes no sense that we property owners in Brentwood and Oakley fund three school districts and all of the administrative duplication that comes with having three school districts. Given today’s economic realities, it seems quite fiscally irresponsible to have three school districts and three sets of different administrators rights in our own backyard. Combining the school districts would increase educational resources, rid the districts of redundancy, and on the state legislative level, a unified school district of Brentwood and Oakley elementary plus Liberty union high school would have two state legislators representing the one district, according to www.wedrawthelines.ca.gov. In addition to combining the three school districts, I’m also going to suggest a neutral name for a combined school district so that no community or school district feels slighted: Marsh Creek Unified School District.

the free we have more of our own citizens locked up in prisons than ever before, with more and more piling up every day and no end in sight? It’s for a very good reason. (Prisons are) now a multi-billiondollar industry, which should be very scary to most people. Instead of trying to rehabilitate or bring the prison population down, our answer is simply to build more and more prisons to the point that they’re now privately owned and traded on Wall Street. I think that’s a very scary fact to think about. A private for-profit prison makes money only by being at full capacity, so the point to rehabilitate and educate doesn’t sit well with the bottom line. Every time a new prison is built, there’s talk of all the jobs it’s going to create with construction and staffing, but once it’s built, all those jobs are no longer needed and the only ones benefiting are the guards, psychologists, psychiatrists and others who are all just squeezing as much as they can out of our economy and budget. It’s a sad state of affairs when prison guards now make more than many college professors in California. Soon, if it’s not already, the budget will be bigger for the prison system than for the entire University of California education system. When there are no opportunities for education or to better yourself, what do you expect the citizens to do? The real criminals are the ones stripping our resources and locking up our citizens by the thousands. The time has come when we can no longer just wait and hope it gets better. Our system is in need of serious repair. Not everyone in prison is a heartless, ruthless criminal. Many have families and lives waiting for them on the outside. They just want to do their time and go home. What’s wrong with that?

Where is all this money going that is getting thrown away by the bundle at a failing prison system? It’s time for prison reform and it’s been time for a long time. It’s no longer financially feasible to house so many inmates nor should it be ethical to not just make a living but get rich off human warehousing. Who are the real criminals here? The California prison system is simply a mess and with no easy fix in sight. As everything across the state takes massive cuts, more and more money is pumped into the prisons, most of which goes to guard’s cushy salaries and benefits, while the rest of us watch city services disappear and budgets swarm to unimaginable heights. Is it more important to build and staff more and more prisons or the education system? We can’t afford both, and I’m afraid we’re choosing the wrong side. Maybe crime would go down if there were a reason for it to, but when too many people are making boatloads of money, crime is not going anywhere as long as we continue with these legal sweatshops and concentration camps. The incarceration industry is alive and well and not going anywhere; capitalism at its finest, as a small minority get rich off the suffering and human-rights violations of the majority. It’s time for California to make a choice: either the prison system or the education system, because it can no longer afford to run them both at half-strength. It just makes for unsafe inmates and unprepared students from cell blocks and classrooms both packed at double capacity. What will we do when the number of incarcerated citizens outnumbers the free? That day will come sooner rather than later. William Richards Brentwood

Mental health facility faces opposition by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer If officials of a proposed mental health facility comply with changes recommended by the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors, a 10-bed residence off Byron Highway in Knightsen could soon become reality. Bonita House, an Oakland-based nonprofit agency operating eight locations in Alameda County, petitioned the board of supervisors in 2008 to build a residential facility on Penny Lane in Knightsen. Approved by the county planning commission last year, the facility would be the first of its kind in Contra Costa County. But the proposal has become a lightning rod for area residents who have petitioned the supervisors to deny the project. “We have many concerns, primarily the remote location of this facility,” said Kim Revel, whose residence is adjacent to the Penny Lane property. “There are no sidewalks, no buses, no parks and no community services out here. The facility would allow residents ages 18 to 59 recovering from mental illnesses such as depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder to live independently on site. A staff member would assist in their dayto-day needs.

“Another concern,” said Revel, “is that initially Bonita House wanted to employ just one supervisor, and our concern was that if a resident who doesn’t drive needed to be taken somewhere, that would then leave nine residents without supervision. “Also, the residents are encouraged but not required to take their medications, and there was a concern on our part that that could potentially be dangerous.” Rick Crispino, executive director of Bonita House, said that while he sympathizes with local residents, he believes the project poses no threat to the community. “I understand the neighbors’ concerns,” said Crispino. “But we can’t force medications on anyone, even in the jails you can’t do that. We would, however, be very aware of that and would be monitoring individuals. And if their behavior starts to change, then that would be grounds for asking them to leave. “In our over 40 years, there has never been a neighbor injured by one of our residents. The irony of this is that in one group I am seen as a champion for individual’s rights and in another group I am seen as the devil incarnate. We’re just doing the best we can for the people we serve.” Mary Piepho addressed the Bonito House proposal during a public hearing on see Facility page 22A

Mohr claims victory at Senior PBA Classic by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

Photo by Richard Wisdom

Ron Mohr celebrates after nailing a key strike in the Senior PBA Northern California Classic at Harvest Park Bowl in Brentwood.

After Ron Mohr nailed his second strike of the 10th frame at the Senior Professional Bowling Association Northern California Classic at Harvest Park Bowl to come within three pins of victory, his mind seemed to be somewhere else. He was thinking about the screaming crowd that lit up after a loose “messenger” pin rolled around, felling the 10th pin for that crucial strike. He was thinking about his wife, Linda, who loved coming to Brentwood but passed away in January after battling liver disease. He wasn’t, however, thinking about where his feet needed to be in that moment. So excited was Mohr that he lined up in the lane to the left of him, until members of the crowd told him to move over. Finally rightfully aligned, the Eagle River, Alaska native threw a perfect strike, earning a 223-215 victory over top-seeded Hugh Miller in the finals. “This is where Linda would want me to be,” Mohr said. “When I got up in the ninth frame, I got up in the approach and I said, ‘Thank you, honey, for getting me this far. No matter what happens the rest of the way, thank you.’” Mohr’s performance in the finals was an exciting comefrom-behind effort. After the sixth frame, Miller led Mohr 129108. In the seventh frame, Mohr rolled a strike, again aided by a “messenger” pin. Miller, from Seattle, managed to knock down nine in the first attempt, picking up the spare, but that

allowed Mohr to get back into the competition. Eventually, Miller took a slim 175-173 lead into the 10th frame. “I couldn’t be happier with the way I bowled,” said Miller, who rolled two 300 games in qualifying rounds. “My look I was trying to create wasn’t going the way I wanted it to, but I made him double. That’s all I could do.” After Miller bowled three strikes in that final frame, the pressure was on for Mohr, who had to come up with two strikes in a row to stay in contention. When Mohr lined up for his third throw, he knew he had the title – and the $8,000 cash prize – in the bag. The Northern California Classic was Mohr’s third Senior PBA victory this year. “(Miller) gave me a chance and I was able to take it,” said Mohr, the 2009 Senior Player of the Year. “If you just make the best shot you can, that’s all you have control over and you see what happens.” To get to the finals, the sixth-seeded Mohr defeated Kent Wagner two games to one in the round of eight. In the semifinals, Mohr bested Wayne Webb 223-195 for the right to face Miller. Miller topped Japan native Junichi Yajima in the round of eight; then outbowled Dick Baker 248-237 in the semifinals. A Columbus, Ohio native, Webb gave one of the most impressive performances of the day, defeating second-seeded Walter Ray Williams Jr. in the round of eight.

week after the Brentwood Blast 10 Red won the division championship of the 680 Diablo League at Twin Creeks, the team claimed a championship in the Cooperstown All-Star Village 10U World Series. After winning six of seven pool-play games, the Blast beat the Reds from North Carolina in the semifinals and shut out the Muskies from Kentucky 6-0 to win the championship.

The District Four Tournament of Champions recently concluded for both the East County and Antioch little leagues, as a couple of local teams took home trophies over the weekend. The greatest local success was achieved by the Antioch softball programs. Two of their champions, the senior softball White Sox and major softball Twins, took home titles. “We’re very proud of all the boys and girls who played hard and showed a lot of

heart,” Antioch Little League Executive Vice President Dennis Felix wrote in an e-mail. “They showed why Antioch Little League is a top-notch program for the kids in Antioch.” The White Sox completed a dominating tournament run by defeating the champions from Martinez 15-6. The White Sox also won in front of their home fans. The Twins were no less impressive, as they beat the Pinole/Hercules league champions in their final game.

Oakley to expand rec bocce ball league by Michael Dixon Correspondent Since the city of Oakley recently completed its first-ever bocce ball season, the inevitable question that comes to mind is: when does the next one start? The eight-week summer season begins the week of July 4. Teams play Monday,

Flourish from page 17A ship was the minor Marlins, which advanced to the finals before losing to the Pinole/Hercules champs. The championship capped a stellar 23-0 season for the Twins, who were led by Kylie Cast, Julia Odom, Megan Felix, Gloria Cervantes and Michaela Vanderklugt. While none of Antioch’s baseball teams reached the final match, teams from two of the three divisions Antioch sent were eliminated by the eventual champs. In the major semi-final, the Bears lost to Alameda’s best team, which beat the Continental League champions 14-5 in the finals. Similarly, Antioch’s AAA minor Yankees were downed by eventual champion North Oakland in the quarterfinal. While East County Little League’s baseball and softball teams didn’t reach any finals, they played well. The A’s of the junior division fell in the quarterfinal to North Oakland, which went on to win the whole bracket. The Astros of the major baseball league,

which lost in the quarterfinals to eventual runner-up Continental, were impressive in a 12-2 win against Clayton Valley in the previous round. The AAA Minor Cardinals made the deepest run of any East County team, advancing to the semifinals before losing 5-2 to Albany. Prior to that loss, the Cards beat the champions of Martinez and Pittsburg 11-1 and 19-3, respectively. “They lost in a great game to Albany,” wrote ECLL President Cary Dyer in an email. “Albany is always a good baseball program, so they played really well.” The Golden Bears were East County’s most successful softball team. In the major division, they were downed 3-0 by Antioch’s Twins in what was by far their most competitive game. The ECLL’s minor champion Pink Panthers also lost to eventual champion Pinole Hercules by a 10-0 margin. The senior champions, the Heaters, lost 19-2 to the eventual runner-up. All of the ECLL’s softball teams were eliminated in the third round. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

While the additional games will make the league more competitive, Newman was careful to point out that the league won’t lose the element of fun. The total number of teams is currently unknown, but the league’s maximum is 24

teams, each of which can carry as many as eight players. The fee to join the league is $20 per player or $150 per team. While the game is fun, Newman wants people to know that the competition is only a part of the bocce experience. “We also barbecue,” Newman said. “It’s a great way for neighbors and friends to get together and meet new people.”

He won the first game of the best-of-three matchup 256-192 and defeated Williams in game two 257-220. “I couldn’t miss in practice, and then we started and all of a sudden one lane hooked and the other one didn’t,” Williams said. “I couldn’t figure it out.” A handful of East County senior bowl-

ers made it through the qualifying rounds for this event, but did not make it to the final day. Mark Clyburn of Pittsburg placed 38th, earning $700. Antioch’s Lee Patterson finished 44th. Pittsburg resident Al Bella came in 47th. Michael Palmer of Antioch and Lorri Sims of Oakley placed 78th and 79th.

Richard Pappenhausen of Chico opened a sizeable lead that couldn’t be overcome by Bobby Hogge IV’s late charge in the Western All Stars feature event at Antioch Speedway on Saturday night. Hogge IV overcame a flat tire to drive to his second second-place finish in the thrilling event. Chris Shannon of Merced led 10 laps of the Western All Stars feature. While Shannon and Hogge IV battled for first, Pappenhausen went high to the wall and passed them. Hogge IV continued to work on Shannon and got by him with five laps to go. Pappenhausen’s lead was too much to overcome and it was Hogge IV, chased by Shannon, crossing the finish line in second and third. “I was just busy with Shannon, and Pappenhausen slipped by,” Hogge IV said. “His (Pappenhausen’s) stuff was pretty good last night. We were running about the same, so I couldn’t make up the difference on the track before the race ended.” Ryan McDaniel of Marysville ended his drought by going green to checkered flag to win the DIRTcar West modified stock car feature. It was the second week in a row that a McDaniel rode the victory lane in the DIRTcar modified feature. Last week, Ryan’s father Randy won the main event. “Dad was challenging me, but his car broke,” Randy McDaniel said. “It would have been great if we got the one-two.” The elder McDaniel was battling his son when a rear-end chain broke, snapping the drive shaft yoke. Nonetheless, son Ryan kept the family name up front. “Thank God I finally got the monkey off my back,” said Ryan McDaniel. “It’s been a struggle for me – the last open show I won was back in ’09. Something always seemed to happen. It felt good to win again.” Crashes and spinouts obliterated the modified field. “I knew it would be a survival deal tonight,” Ryan added. “I just tried to stay on the smoothest part of the track.” Hogge IV’s car was torn apart in the on-track carnage. With the hood and nosepiece already torn off the car, his right rear tire went flat late in the race. Dad Bobby Hogge III changed it in time for his son to come back, start from the rear, and finish second. “Even so, we had a race car that was capable of winning,” Hogge IV said. “All I can say: it was not easy coming through that gaggle of cars. They were racing inside to outside and outside to inside. The track may have been a little rough, but it’s up to the guy behind the wheel to keep his car straight.” There will be no racing at Antioch Speedway on the Fourth of July weekend.

Fireworks – unsafe and illegal To ensure a safe holiday, the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District reminds residents that fireworks are not toys – and are prohibited in Contra Costa County. Fires ignited by fireworks can destroy property, and the explosion of fireworks can cause severe injuries (such as blindness) and death. Children often mistake fireworks for toys, and teenagers often assume that setting off fireworks is harmless fun. Safety officials urge parents to teach their children not to play with fireworks and to keep a safe distance from them. Fireworks injure and kill thousands of children each year, and East Contra Costa County firefighters know one thing about playing for fireworks: it’s not worth the risk. If you witness others playing with fireworks, immediately report them to your local police department – for everyone’s safety. For more information, visit www.eccfpd.org.

Facility from page 16A June 21, saying she would like to see the facility put not one but two staff members on duty around the clock, as well as require the home to be subject to yearly reviews. “The state sets a minimum level for staffing,” said Piepho. “And I am simply recommending to the board that there be two staff people 24 hours a day. It doesn’t violate the state standard … the annual reviews are to assure the public that there are checks and balances in place for their safety.” Crispino believes the annual reviews wouldn’t be a problem, but that the requirement of additional staff members would most likely be a deal breaker. “More staffing? No, we wouldn’t be agreeable to that,” said Crispino. “It would make the project financially unfeasible … “If we can’t get it hammered out, the project would not be able to open, and then the (Bonita House) board would have to decide what comes next.

Officials’ attempts to obtain federal stimulus money for the project have been unsuccessful. “What we saw was them trying to spread the money out to try to get more projects on the board,” Frazier said. “It’s understandable what the commissioners were trying to do – create jobs in as many regions as possible.” Dale Dennis, the program manager for the Bypass Authority, said there’s no timeline quite yet. To receive the mon-

tion is possible, but that would have to be reviewed by attorneys familiar with the Federal Fair Housing or Americans with Civil Disabilities Act. “For now, we’ll wait and see what they (Board of Supervisors) come up with for conditions and how they’re written up and take it from there.” Revel felt more comfortable with the supervisor’s comments regarding the project, but is still concerned. “I definitely feel better about the suggestion of added staff and additional reviews,” said Revel. “But I’m still worried … In a perfect world, the facility would be closer to community services so that the resident could easily get around. This is not a case of NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard); it’s really just a matter of safety of the community as well as the residents (of the home).” The issue is set to come before the Board of Supervisors for review and possible final approval at the board’s regular meeting on July 12.

According to Dennis, a timeline will be a little easier to imagine once a budget is set in stone. The project, touted as shovel-ready, will take about 18 months to complete. Taylor said earlier this year that if the project is put out to bid in July, construction could start as early as October. “Certainly, we were looking for the full amount,” Dennis said. “When you get $25 million, you have to be pleased. It’s $25 million more than we have.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

THE GADSDEN FLAG fledgling nation. One of the first was that of George Washington’s Cruisers, a squadron of schooners that the future first president outfitted at his own expense in 1775. The flag was a variation of the New England Pine Tree flag. The Sons of Liberty, a secretive group of patriot insurgents, met in Boston beneath a large pine that came to be known as The Liberty Tree, a symbol of American independence included on many flags. Some also believe the Liberty Tree was included on the Washington Cruiser flag as another political compromise – a patriotic, New England icon intended to offset

standard, the designs of the American flag have been as varied and robust as the people and nation the flag has represented. In observation of America’s 235th birthday on Monday, here are some of the stories behind a few versions of that Grand Old Flag and her sisters. The Grand Union The distinction of America’s first official flag goes to the Grand Union, an amalgam of symbols intended to not only identify the banded-together-yet-independent colonies, but to recognize that not everyone in those colonies wanted to sever the relationship with England. The 13 stripes representing the original colonies are displayed, but in place of the now-familiar canton (the name for the blue star field) there’s a British Union Jack. An early example of the political compromises needed to form the United States, the design was meant to acknowledge the many colonials who wished to repair and maintain the relationship with England. The Grand Union was adopted in 1775, and was first seen flying from the masts of the Colonial fleet on the Delaware River on Dec. 3. A young Navy lieutenant named John Paul Jones raised the newly designated colors aboard Captain Esek Hopkins’ flagship Alfred. The Grand Union was the official flag of the 13 American colonies on July 4, 1776 when they declared independence, and on Sept. 9, 1776, when Congress adopted the name “United States.” For almost the entire first year of the American Revolution, the Grand Union Flag with its Union Jack represented the new country struggling for freedom from England. Washington’s Cruisers Other flags began to emerge to identify the individual groups that made up the

The painting was nine feet tall and 12 feet wide. the Virginian Washington’s Southern roots. Another unifying device is the text “AN APPEAL TO HEAVEN,” a request for God’s support and acknowledgment that the British Army would be tough to beat, something everyone could agree on. The Gadsden Flag (Gadsden Banner) South Carolina’s Christopher Gadsden was one of the Sons of Patriots. When the English Parliament levied the Stamp Act on the colonies in 1765, Gadsden argued that taxation without representation violated the most basic laws of the English constitution and the natural rights of citizens, and he set

out to make trouble over it. When the British envoy sent to enforce the new law arrived from England, he tried to land in Charleston, but Gadsden and the Sons of Liberty would not let his ship anchor. The ship turned back through the mouth of the Charleston harbor to anchor near Fort Johnson. The Sons of Liberty traveled to the fort, took it over, and aimed the British guns at the Stamp Act collector’s ship. Outmatched and outgunned, the tax collector set to sea, see Wave page 3B

Wave from page 2B never to return. Eight years later, Gadsden became a colonel in the Revolutionary Army and created his distinctive banner. According to www. gadsden.info/history.html, the significance of how the rattlesnake device could be interpreted was the subject of a December, 1775 letter in the Pennsylvania Journal from an author signed only as “American Guesser.” The rattlesnake can be found “in no other quarter of the world besides America,” the letter offered, and its sharp eyes were “an emblem of vigilance.” More importantly, American Guesser wrote, “She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage. … she never wounds ’till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her.” Many scholars now believe that American Guesser was Benjamin Franklin. Gadsden’s flag became the personal standard of Esek Hopkins, the first commander-in-chief of the Navy. Today, the Gadsden Flag is once again often seen at political rallies and tax protests. The Betsy Ross Flag Upholsterers John and Betsy Ross lived in Philadelphia, and John was killed working for the patriot cause when an ammunition cask exploded. That much is true. The rest of her legend, however – not so much. According to Ross family oral history, the widowed Betsy Ross met with George Washington and two congressmen at her upholstery business in the spring of 1776.

The original Star Spangled Banner that inspired our national anthem is on display at the Smithsonian Institution.

THE SERAPIS FLAG The meeting was said to have resulted in the sewing of the first U.S. stars and stripes flag bearing the iconic circle of stars. The “oral history,” however, was written by a family member nearly 100 years after the supposed events, and no such meeting

cular pattern of stars. He designed the flag while he was the Chairman of the Continental Navy Board’s Middle Department, sometime between his appointment to that position in November of 1776 and the Flag Resolution of June of 1777. This contradicts the idea that Betsy Ross could have sewn the flag in the spring of 1776. Although she probably didn’t create the flag named after her, records show that Ross did make “ship’s colours” for the Pennsylvania Navy in 1777. She’s also widely credited with devising a simple, one-snip method of producing the five-pointed stars used in the American flag, which were unusual for flags of the period. The Serapis Flag (John Paul Jones’ Flag) After attacking a British convoy off the coast of Norway in 1779, the ship of U.S. Navy Captain John Paul Jones – the former lieutenant who first raised the Grand Union on the Alfred four years earlier – the Bonhomme Richard, began to slowly sink into the North Sea. The captain of the British warship Serapis demanded that Jones surrender, only to receive Jones’ immortal response, “I have not yet begun to fight.” Three hours later, the Serapis surrendered to Jones and became his new flagship. He sailed his prize to a neutral Dutch port, where, because the ship flew no colors (Jones’ had gone down with the Bonhomme Richard), he was accused of being a pirate by the British, who demanded the ship be returned by Dutch authorities.

Wave from page 3B seen the Stars and Stripes approved in 1777. In letters, however, Jones had read that “colors should be white, red, and blue alternately to thirteen” with a “blue field with thirteen stars.” Apparently based upon this description, a recognizable ensign was quickly made to fly aboard the Serapis, and Dutch records were edited to include a sketch of the ensign to make it official. The Dutch could, therefore, recognize the flag and avoid the legal controversy of Jones’ captured ship. The Dutch records survive and provide the original sketch of the flag. Ironically, the Dutch acceptance of the misconstrued design as a national ensign marked the first time a foreign power recognized the United States as an independent entity. The Bennington Flag Another popular flag design whose story doesn’t pass historical muster is the Bennington Flag. The flag features the number “76,” 13 eight-pointed stars and an unusual white-first stripe layout. The story goes that it was carried at the 1777 Battle of Bennington, Vermont, during which 2,000 rebels surprised and decisively beat a 700man British Army detachment searching for horses and supplies. The flag was said to have been passed down through the family of one of the battle’s veterans. But modern examination of the original flag – which is preserved in the Bennington Museum – shows that it was woven using power looms invented in the 1820s, when the highly stylized font used for the numerals was also popular. It is now thought the flag

Bob Heft designed the 50-star American flag when he was a 17-year-old high school student. The flag earned him a “B-” from his teacher, but the grade was changed to an “A” when the design was adopted.

was made to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the revolution, and acquired its battlefield legend as time blurred the facts with latterday family histories. The Star Spangled Banner (Old Glory) In 1794, the first post-revolution change to the Stars and Stripes came with the admittance to the Union of Vermont and Kentucky. In addition to two more stars, the new design added two stripes, one for each new state. It became apparent that adding stripes for each new state would be a problem, however, and when five more states were admitted in 1818, the number of stripes was set permanently back at 13. This flag’s greatest distinction goes beyond its unique design. It was the 15-star, 15-stripe flag that flew over Fort McHenry, which defended Baltimore Harbor against British warships during the War of 1812.

The flag, originally 30x42 feet with stars two feet in diameter, still flew over the fort after 25 hours of bombardment, inspiring Francis Scott Key to write the poem “The Defence of Fort McHenry.” The poem would later be set to music, renamed The Star-Spangled Banner and become our national anthem. Ravaged by time and souvenir collectors, the Star Spangled Banner is now eight feet shorter and bears only 14 stars. A $7 million, 10-year preservation effort was finished in 2008, and the flag is now on display at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. The 34-star Civil War flag Laid out in the traditional pattern of stars in a horizontal pattern, the flag that flew over the Capitol during most of the Civil War is special for something that didn’t

happen. Faced with pressure from Congress to remove the stars representing the 11 seceding states of the South, President Abraham Lincoln steadfastly refused. The states had not left the Union, he insisted; they were only in rebellion. It was an important distinction that helped keep foreign powers from coming to the aid of the South. All 34 stars remained. The 50-star pattern It’s probably fitting that, in a nation that proudly boasts that any child can become president, the 50-star flag in use today was designed by a teenager. Bob Heft, a 17-year-old high school student in Ohio, created the 50-star design for a high school history project in 1958. He received a “B-” but two years later his creation was chosen as the new national flag – and his teacher revised his grade to an “A.” Now in its 51st year, Heft’s design has been the national flag longer than any other.

Interfaith blood drive kicks off The American Red Cross Northern California Blood Services Region will hold 24 day-long blood drives throughout July, sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of Oakland and 14 Stakes of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the North Bay Area. This is believed to be the largest single blood drive in the history of the region and the largest church-organized blood drive in the national organization’s history. The “Interfaith Community Blood Drive” takes place at Catholic, Mormon and other churches in Alameda, Contra Costa and San Francisco counties. The drives will provide convenient locations for parishioners and the general public to make donations. The month-long drive has set the ambitious goal of collecting 1,500 units of blood. The first drive will be held Friday July 1 from noon to 6 p.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 2350 Jeffrey Way in Brentwood. Representatives from all three organizations will be present to greet and thank the first donors. “July is traditionally a difficult month to collect blood because schools are out and many

people are on vacation,” said Jeff Meyer, chief executive officer of the American Red Cross Northern California Blood Services Region. “The commitment by the Catholic congregations and Latter-day Saints’ stakes is to collect more than 20 percent of the blood we need in July, and we are excited they have readily taken on this need.” Someone in the United States needs a blood transfusion every two seconds. Blood transfusions are used for trauma victims – due to accidents and burns heart surgery, organ transplants, women with complications during childbirth, newborns and premature babies, plus patients receiving treatment for cancer or diseases such as sickle cell. Donors must be at least 17 years of age (16 with parental permission), meet height and weight requirements (at least 110 pounds based on height) and be in generally good physical health. Call 800-RED CROSS (800-733-2767) or visit www.redcrossblood.org (sponsor code: InterfaithCommunity) to schedule an appointment.

ABCs for kid-healthy house Children often come into closer contact with their environment than adults. They put their fingers in their mouths and crawl on the floor. They touch, taste and breathe things without knowing if they’re harmful. According to the Greenguard Environmental Institute, because children’s organs and respiratory, immune and neurological systems are still developing, they’re more sensitive to harmful substances such as certain chemicals, particles and allergens. According to Dr. Alanna Levine of the American Academy of Pediatrics, allergy symptoms typically begin during childhood. She offers the following the ABCs for maintaining a healthy environment for children:

Avoid Avoid allergy triggers such as products made of feathers or down. Use hypoallergenic pillows on your child’s bed, and limit exposure to perfume, talcum powder, hair spray, air fresheners and fabric softeners. Strong fragrances aggravate allergy symptoms, so keep children prone to allergies out of the house when you spray fragrances or use strong cleaning products.

Balance Maintain a consistent balance in the house to minimize allergens. Keep the windows shut and use central air conditioning during highpollen seasons to protect children from pollen particles that trees, grasses and weeds release into the air. These particles can harbor in the eyes, nose and airways, causing allergy symptoms to flare. Also, give children washable, nonallergenic stuffed toys when possible, and wash the ones played with the most on a weekly basis – in hot water at least 130 degrees Fahrenheit.

Change Change items that are easy to neglect but are important for maintaining a healthier house, such as leaky faucets, pipes and other high-moisture areas where mold commonly grows. Don’t neglect their air in the house, either. Change your filter every three months, and use a high-performance filter such as a Filtrete Elite Allergen Reduction Filter from 3M. Vacuum your carpet often and thoroughly, and change the vacuum cleaner bag on a monthly basis. – Courtesy of Family Features

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Quit smoking and avoid weight gain A 1969 report that cigarette smoking was harmful made the headlines. It was a huge wakeup call for those who smoked for many years – as well as this teenager, who thought it was “cool” to be seen smoking. It was no surprise, since rumblings of smoking being bad for your health started way before ’69. But until it was established as a fact SENIOR and put in writing, few ORNER paid a lot of attention. Sadly, this addictive habit is not easy to give up. I can speak from experience and you can ask my husband if the two weeks I started kicking the habit were as pleasant for him as they were for me. MARLA LUCKHARDT That people who quit smoking gain weight is a widely accepted notion. It seems logical: if you substitute snacking for smoking (especially candy snacks), you’ll put on the pounds. The truth is: some people gain weight when they quit and some don’t. On average, smokers who quit gain about 5-10 pounds. The hazards of smoking, of course, far outweigh the extra pounds. If you want to quit, try to plan it around a less stressful time such as after holidays – times when eating is more of a temptation. Try to avoid parties or restaurants that feature a buffet or large portions. If you must go to such an event, drink a large glass of water and eat an apple before going.

C

My two favorite times for a “MARLAboro” were after a meal and when I talked on the phone. I needed to do something with my hands and instead of substituting that cigarette with food, I began crocheting. I made 23 blankets! That might not be the answer for everyone, but keeping your hands busy by doing a puzzle, reading a book, drawing or even just taking a walk can distract the urge. It’s difficult to do these things while smoking. Increasing your activity is a no-brainer. Quitting the nicotine habit and avoiding weight gain go hand-in-hand with exercise. If you want to alleviate those potential extra pounds, there’s your answer. Avoid stress. Easy concept, not so easy to do. Instead of reaching for a smoke, try deep breathing, meditating or making positive statements out loud. If you do the latter in a room by yourself, nobody will look at you funny while you say things like “I can do it” or “I am relaxed and calm.” Last but not least, ask your family or friends for support. I didn’t tell anyone I was quitting for about six days; I was afraid I would let them down if I failed. But since I was a bit edgy, well, I was downright feisty – they knew something was up. I think my husband was about to call 911 to see why someone else was sleeping in our bed. Marla Luckhardt is a Discovery Bay resident and member of the East Contra Costa Senior Coalition.

Teresa Burrell, author of “The Advocate’s Betrayal,” will be at Barnes & Noble in Antioch July 8-10 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. to sign copies and discuss her latest book. “The Advocate’s Betrayal” tells the story of a killer who left nothing behind but a rosary, a kitchen knife and a dead man. But the dead man is a friend of Sabre Orin Brown. When his unsuspecting wife is accused of the murder, Sabre will stop at nothing to uncover the truth, even if it means unearthing chilling secrets. From a San Diego jail to the shady Chicago nightlife, Sabre’s search for the killer forces the question: What do you do when the ones you trust the most are the ones with the most to hide?
