Back-to-school Along for the ride déjà vu for family by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Twenty-seven years ago, Robbie Ellsworth kissed his mother goodbye and set off for his first day of kindergarten. Next week, Robbie’s daughter Isabella, 4, will do the same, becoming the second generation of Ellsworth children to attend Discovery Bay Elementary School, and perpetuate a family tradition. “I think it’s pretty cool,” said Robbie, 31. “It’s nice that she’ll be going to the same school in the same little town. It’s a nice community.” Not to be outdone, however, Terrie’s daughter Molly will also be enrolling her twin boys, Matt and Mike, in kindergarten at Discovery Bay Elementary next week. Matt and Mike will breeze through the same classroom doors as their

cousin Isabella. “It’s wonderful,” said Terrie of her grandchildren. “Molly’s son attended kindergarten there last year and now the three of them are going this year. For me personally, it means a lot. As a kid I changed schools almost every year, so for my children and grandchildren to go to the same school is very special.” The Ellsworths first set down roots in Discovery Bay in 1981, when the community was so small that the children were sent to a nearby Byron school until Discovery Bay Elementary was built. Over the years, the Ellsworths raised their children in the quiet Delta town where today all three children have remained to raise their own families. The elder Ellsworths too have remained in town, living in the home on Discovery Bay Boulevard

Residents discuss Delta’s murky future by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

Roger Lund, left, and Mike Hall, representing the California Striped Bass Association and the Restore the Delta campaign, express their opposition to the Bay Delta Conservation Plan at Tuesday’s City Council meeting.

A Southern California water official recently touted the proposed peripheral canal as a safety measure against the next big earthquake, but Antioch’s residents and City Council members were wary. The proposed Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP) would create a canal from the northern part of the San Joaquin Delta, near Sacramento, and pump water through the Central Valley and ultimately into Southern California. Curt Schmutte, a consultant for the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, believes the Delta is unsustainable right now. Schmutte predicted a

grim future – such as increased salinity and widespread flooding when the next big earthquake hits – for the Delta if changes aren’t made. “We think it’s important to be prepared, to be prepared and thinking ahead and not be reactive,” Schmutte said. “We believe, in order to benefit all of California, that we need to reduce these risks that I just talked about.” Schmutte warned that there’s a 62-percent chance of a quake with a magnitude 6.7 or greater before 2032. Should that happen, he claimed the levees would give way and flood several islands. A peripheral canal would provide an escape valve. However, Antioch officials

Suspect arrested in Oakley homicide by Rick Lemyre

A suspect has been arrested in connection with a pair of shootings in Oakley Saturday night that left one man dead and another hospitalized. The shootings took place about a half mile from the scene of another fatal shooting last month. Oakley resident David Vargas, 21, was arrested by detectives early Sunday morning on charges of homicide, assault with a firearm and shooting at vehicles. He was booked into the county jail; bail was set at $1.8 million. Vargas is being held in connection with the shooting death Saturday night of Omar Martinez, 22, of Oakley. Martinez was pronounced dead at the scene. Police responded to reports of gunshots in the 1100 block of O’Hara Avenue about 7 p.m. and found Martinez dead inside a black sedan. A second male, 16, was found nearby also suffering from gunshot wounds. He was airlifted to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek and listed in stable condition. Detectives believe there were two additional victims in the vehicle in which Vargas was found. Oakley Chief of Police Bani Kollo said the investigation is ongoing, and while the motive of the shooting remains unknown,

the incident does not appear to be random. “The suspect was not arrested with any gang enhancements,” said Kollo. “But there are certainly gang overtones to this, and time will tell based on further investigation.” The shooting occurred about a half mile from where 21-year-old James Di Dio of Oakley was shot to death on June 4 near O’Hara Park Middle School. Dameon Zesati, 19, also of Oakley, was arrested two days later and charged with murder and participating in a street gang. Although police have not indicated that the two cases are related, area residents believe they are. One neighbor, who asked not to be identified, said it was “just crazy to see people who have, in some cases, been friends as far back as elementary school, now killing each other. … They don’t see how when they get shot or killed they victimize their family members, and in many cases they’re forced to travel in the area of the shootings on a daily basis.” Another Oakley resident, who is also a police officer in a nearby city, said he believes Oakley is a nice community, but that gangs in the area are putting many at risk. He said Saturday’s shooting is a “wakeup call” that should be addressed by the community immediately. Correspondent Janice Gomes contributed to this story.

Freedom Hot Tub gets a home by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

People who support Operation Creekside in Brentwood are anything but all wet, but one of them is about to get that way. The Brentwood-based support group that has sent nearly 3,000 care packages and countless prayers to troops stationed overseas recently wrapped up its Freedom Hot Tub fundraiser with a drawing for a star-spangled hot tub seen in recent months at various community events and businesses. The raffle raised $6,500 to help pay postage for the ongoing Operation Creekside shipments. Prior to the giveaway, however, the group took care of some business, packing and praying over 51 more boxes headed overseas. The drawing was also preceded by the presentation of a battleflown American flag to Bill Brandt Ford, a major Operation Creekside sponsor and host of the evening’s activities, and a Liberty Bible to General Sales Manager Steve Meister. Army Spc. Chris Carlisle, who received care packages during his recent deployment, then plucked from the revolving drum the winning ticket, making Dana Booth of Salesforce.com the winner of the tub. Operation Creekside leader Ed McClelland praised Booth and his company for helping put together an earlier

Another drawing made Brentwood’s Cathy Daniels the winner of a roll-around Craftsman tool box donated by Big B Lumber. Ken Whitaker of Sasville Properties, Dan Leckrone of TLP Group and Michael Perone with Barracuda.com each donated $1,000 to purchase the hot tub.

“Thanks to Bill Brandt Ford for amazing continuous support, Clipper Spas, Big B Lumber and all our sponsors, supporters and prayer partners,” said McClelland. “Our mission continues – maybe no crazy hot tub raffles for a while – but wherever God leads this ministry, we will joyfully follow.”

Powell brings to the program an extensive knowledge of the intricacies of ritual music as well as a fine voice. Those wanting to learn more about the Shabbat service – and those who just like to sing – should find the Sunday evening program rewarding.

Recently it was reported that Bank of America had settled with a group of institutional investors who had suffered large losses after investing in securities backed by loans made by Countrywide (BofA acquired Countrywide when they imploded). The amount of the settlement was to be $8.5 billion to compensate investors for their losses. My guess was that this settlement would clear the air so BofA could go ahead and resume a rapid pace of foreclosing on homes again. BofA seems to be dragging their feet on many of their foreclosures, so we’ve been waiting for the “surge” to come at some point. I had planned to write about this in last week’s article, and warn those of you with BofA loans that are in default that they may be speeding up their foreclosure processes now. But then the news hit about the new California law which appears to remove lenders ability to pursue you after a short sale on senior AND junior loans. So I pushed the BofA topic to this week, and I’m glad I waited! The settlement is now being contested

by some of the investors, putting the outcome in doubt. Some of the investors aren’t happy that BofA is only buying back 40% of the bad loans. They want the figure raised to 100%, which puts the dollar figure between $23 and $28 billion. So this could take a while to resolve. One very funny part of the otherwise dry legal wranglings came when I read BofA’s defense. They say that the investors had a fiduciary duty to their investors to investigate what they were investing in, and that it was hard to believe they didn’t know what they were buying. If you read between the lines, it seems like BofA’s attorneys are readily admitting that the AAA-rated investments were in fact, junk, and the investors should have known better than to buy them in the first place.

Getting Beyond Antioch Power-full assistance Beyond Antioch, a class being held at the Antioch Senior Center (ASC), is designed to teach seniors about the fixed-route transit access available to them beyond the city’s borders. The Antioch Senior Bus provides customized transit for seniors and persons with disabilities within the Antioch city limits, plus access to fixed-route service and BART at the Hillcrest Park and Ride and the Delta Fair Kaiser transit stop. TriDelta Transit operates a paratransit service (Dial-a-Ride) that covers a wider area: from Brentwood, Oakley and Antioch to the Hillcrest Park and Ride and Pittsburg/Bay Point BART station. Fixed-route transit in Antioch also serves Hillcrest Park and Ride and BART, with access at various bus stops serving a number of routes seven days a week. The AMTRAK station in downtown Antioch serves the San Joaquin line. The Beyond Antioch class has met weekly since February. Following a two-class orientation by TriDelta Transit, the meetings explored transit issues and possible group trips. The ASC group also plans to lobby local transit agencies regarding senior citizen transit issues. The group has planned trips for individual members to go to Point Reyes, the Stockton Asparagus Festival, Oakland Airport, Monterey-Carmel, Vacaville, Santa Cruz, Sausalito, the San Francisco Cable Car Museum, Citrus Heights and local shopping excursions. As a group, it has gone to free museum

days in San Francisco, The Valley of Heart’s Delight and Moffet Field in Sunnyvale, Mission San Rafael and the thrift stores in downtown San Rafael, a Bay Cruise from Vallejo on the BayLink Ferry, Black Bear Diner in Oakley, and a trip to a unique family-owned hot dog restaurant, the Mutt Hut, in San Leandro. Upcoming trips are being planned to Napa Valley, the Gilroy Garlic Festival, downtown Walnut Creek shopping and the San Leandro Otis Spunkmeyer cookie factory. All trips are day trips, starting around 8 a.m. and returning to Antioch by 9 p.m. The class is taught by public transit expert and ASC member Michael D’Augelli. All ASC members are welcome to join the meetings. For those who cannot make the meetings, customized fixed-route transit planning is available by simply leaving a request at the ASC front desk in the Beyond Antioch folder. The Transit Guy will respond with information about fixed-route transit from the member’s home. Members are encouraged to obtain the discount Clipper card, if eligible (65 and older or for disabilities). If not eligible, the adult Clipper card is recommended. Many agencies beyond Antioch accept the Clipper Card (BART, Muni, Golden Gate bus and Ferry, AC Transit, VTA, SamTrans and CalTrain). AMTRAK offers a senior discount for those 62 and older. The Beyond Antioch class meets Wednesdays from 10 to 11:15 a.m. in the Antioch Senior Center’s classroom A, 415 W. Second St.

Kati Short, Artist of the Year by Amy Claire Correspondent

Most attendees of this month’s Open Mic event didn’t suspect the night would be much different than any other, and things certainly started out that way. As usual, Brentwood Poet Laureate Kati Short ran the show, introducing participants and thanking them at the conclusion of their readings. And she probably thought that’s how it would go – right up to the moment Jack Gaughan of the Brentwood Art Society stood up to read an original poem. But the final stanza of his “Ode to an Artist” packed a surprise message, announcing that Kati had been selected as the Society’s 2011 Artist of the Year. A joyful Short was delighted at the honor, and at being the subject of Gaughan’s composition. “Nobody’s ever written me an ode before!” she laughed. “I’m thrilled!” The award comes as yet another achievement in the life of a highly-accomplished woman. Though she has earned a degree in English, Short has also worked the graveyard shift at the Red Cross, owned her own business and successfully fought against gender discrimination to become a department store buyer. She taught English in Korea for more than eight years, has traveled to more than a dozen countries, and once traversed the continent with her husband, Stormy, on an 11,000-

fell in love with words. “I was good at expressing myself on paper so I continued to march in that effort,” she said. She wrote newspaper articles and prose throughout high school and, as an adult, began writing poetry. Currently, Short is working on a book, the love story of her and Stormy. After meeting in 1958, they were separated when he was drafted into the armed forces. Decades later, they reconnected over the Internet. Short was living in Korea and didn’t intend to return to the United States, but when Stormy asked her to marry him, she changed her mind. “That was an offer I couldn’t refuse,” she said with a smile. One of Short’s projects as poet laureate is to assemble an anthology of short works from local writers. The Brentwood Writers Club will assemble the submissions, which be published in book form and made available for purchase. “This is a big deal,” Short said. “It’s the first time it’ll be done in our area.” The project is sponsored by the City of Brentwood. Submissions for the anthology will be accepted from Aug. 1 to Sept. 15. For more information, e-mail shortkati@yahoo.com. Short is passionate about her role as Brentwood’s poet laureate, and now as Artist of the Year: “The opportunity for people to express themselves through literary arts – I take that very seriously.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Now stepping up to the plate: Lady Luck I’ve discovered something shocking about the men in my family. When it comes to baseball, they are ridiculously superstitious. My 11-year-old son plays for the Antioch All Stars, which means that I drive all over the Bay area to cheer HANGIN’ IN him on – which I HERE willingly do. I’m one of those obnoxious fans who clap and stomp their feet and yell out those baseball catch phrases like “good eye, good eye!� VICKI and “nice swing, MCKENNA kid!� throughout the game. We the devoted parents, grandmas, grandpas, aunts and uncles try to will the kids to victory with our mouths, and I like to believe our cheering has helped them win. If you ask the boys on the team, however, they’ll tell you they win because they haven’t washed their socks in three weeks, or because they listen to Snoop Dogg before the game. In my family, we must use our blue ice chest – not the green one – and my son’s uniform must be freshly washed. (For this I’m thankful. Eleven-year-old boys can get really ripe during a game played in 95-degree mercury.) These kids and their coaches firmly believe that if they deviate from the rituals they performed on the first day of winning, a delicate cosmic balance will be disturbed. One of our coaches forgot his watch the first day our team started winning so he refuses to wear a watch now. Another coach believes our winning has everything to do with him wearing a watch, so it’s the first thing he puts on before a game. Our awesome Coach Joe and one of our most enthusiastic parents, Troy, groomed the field on the first day Antioch won, so now before every game, they groom and water the fields.

T

Are all men like this? You’d think they were raised by a band of gypsies! The heartbreaker came when my own son told me he had a hunch that I was bad luck. “Me?! Your mom?! Are you joking? You cut me to the quick, child.â€? I couldn’t believe it. Yes, it’s true: I was there when our team lost, but thankfully the series is double elimination. I was in the stands for the next two wins. That night my son quietly let me off the hook: “I guess you’re not bad luck after all, Mom.â€? Wow. Now I can go on with my life. I will tell you where I need some luck, folks. It’s on the freeway, traveling to all these blasted games! I was almost killed on the way home from Lafayette by a rich kid in a black Mercedes, and on the way home from Albany I was almost forced to kill someone who tried to pass us on the left shoulder. I’m hoping I survive the next two upcoming games. My husband tells me that all professional athletes are superstitious. They grow beards and wear thong underwear (ouch!). Superstition might be a sports tradition, but I prefer to believe our team wins because it ‌ well, simply rocks. They’re 11-year-old boys who are composed and fearless and work together like a well-oiled machine. I hope they all realize that luck has nothing at all to do with their awesomeness. That’s why we cheer them on till our voices are gone, and stomp our feet till the bleachers shake. It’s been our good fortune to ride the wave of victory with them. Our next game is coming up and the competition is getting tougher, but I’m confident. I’ll dutifully wash my son’s uniform and pack the blue ice chest – and maybe wear a necklace made of garlic, for good measure. Go, Antioch! To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters The Finish Line There is a loooong waiting period between professional basketball season and professional football season…at which time professional baseball is played. This only makes sense as professional baseball season, all 162 games of it, is very loooong in its own right. From April to October professional baseball tracks more stats than basketball and football, combined. I say that to say this: no one really wants to hear about the stats as much as they want to hear about the winner. In any game – baseball, basketball, football, or pea knuckle – no one cares about anything but the finish line and who crossed it first. You can throw the Ground ball fly ball ratio (GO/ AO), along with all of the other “useless” stats, out the window if you don’t cross the finish line first. That being said and tweaking this analogy to fit residential mortgage loans, the mortgage equivalent to this finish line would be your FICO score. The rules of our “game” have changed, or rather fallen back into black-and-white, and underwriting guidelines now REVOLVE around middle FICO score requirements. Residential mortgage underwriters will not even attempt to underwrite a loan if the potential borrowers do not meet certain credit score guidelines; according to Dave Zitting, the chief executive of Primary Residential Mortgage, a leading mortgage lender, “the credit score has

become the line in the sand for the banks.” If that’s truly the case, and FICO requirements only continue to rise, shouldn’t you be doing everything in your power to ensure your FICO score is where it needs to be? With credit card companies lowering limits at their discretion, and without warning, now more than ever you need to monitor your overall credit profile. Balances that are above 50% of a particular card’s actual credit limit negatively effects your FICO score, and in turn your ability to qualify for a mortgage. The number of credit inquiries under your social security number in a 90 day period also has a negative effect on your FICO score – too many inquiries and your score will actually decrease. And lastly, any late payments or collections will ruin a FICO score faster than either of the first two examples. Bottom line, in this day and age the finish line is your FICO score. If you’re planning on playing the real estate “game,” and crossing its finish line, you’ll need to train for a healthy FICO score. Throw all of the other “stats” out the window and call me to ensure you’re on the right path. If you have any real estate lending related questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to write me at tfreymortgages@ yahoo.com or call me directly on my cell phone, (925) 726-1444.

City to get new landmark building by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

After months of planning discussions, the first phase of the Oakley Downtown Specific Plan is about to begin. At a City Council meeting in June, Project Developer Charles Kahn showed council members the initial drawings of the proposed corner of Vintage Parkway and Main Street, which will include a new landmark building that complements the adjacent city hall and space for restaurants and other businesses. Kahn declared the downtown project to be the most exciting of his 25-year career. “I’ve told a number of people as I’ve been working on this project: we’re working in Oakley,” said Kahn. “And they’ll say, ‘That’s the town between Antioch and Brentwood.’ I want this to be the town that defines those two cities, and I think we have a chance to do that with this project.” The council approved the Downtown Specific Plan in February of last year, but progress was delayed until the city acquired properties in Oakley Plaza, home to CentroMart and La Costa. Once the properties were in the city’s possession, planning discussions intensified, and earlier this year, the city demolished the former Round Table Pizza building. As part of the new design, La Costa will be displaced as well, but only temporarily. Councilmember Pat Anderson emphasized that La Costa will not be leaving

It will temporarily close to make way for the construction of the new building, in which La Costa is scheduled to occupy a space. Anderson, who serves on the ad hoc Downtown Committee with Vice Mayor Kevin Romick, said other restaurants have expressed interest in moving into the building, which will have room for multiple restaurants, including a large, 100-seat, twostory restaurant where Round Table used to be. Phase one also includes the construc-

tion of a public plaza enhanced by a tranquil water feature to augment Oakley’s quaint downtown ambiance. As part of the next phases, said Romick, Main Street will be widened to provide more accessible diagonal parking – going in a different direction than Brentwood, which recently converted from diagonal to parallel downtown parking. The buildings in the back of the plaza, such as Yogurt Island and Hook, Line & Sinker, will be altered to match the new buildings at the front of the center.

Previous city councils have worked on the downtown plan since Oakley’s incorporation in 1999. Now, finally, 80 acres of downtown Oakley along the Main Street corridor will be enhanced and revitalized. “It’s very exciting to finally be getting this done,” said Romick. City Manager Bryan Montgomery and staff will be drafting construction documents and the project will go out to bid later this year. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Discovery Bay needs new well, rates by Rick Howard General Manager, Discovery Bay CSD There has been a lot of chatter recently about the need to increase water and wastewater rates in Discovery Bay. I can tell you: the decision to raise rates is difficult, but unfortunately, it’s a necessary step in the long-term sustainability of our community’s water and wastewater infrastructure needs. It’s important that we take a strategic and objective look UEST into the future and plan for our COMMENT short-term and long-term capital requirements. It’s a prudent and appropriate measure of assessing our facilities’ overall health. Without that assessment, we will continue to fall behind in our ability to meet our existing water and wastewater obligations and to remain in compliance with state health standards. As a consequence, in 2010, the Town of Discovery Bay Community Services District commissioned Water and Wastewater Master Plans to assist the district in identifying its long-term capital needs. Those Master Plans provide a 10year outlook and assisted in the development of the district’s current year’s budget. The district’s long-term capital needs are substantial –

G

some are driven by current conditions, while others are driven by projected future development. However, it’s important that we continue to meet existing obligations, which, at this time, we do not. Title 22, a California Department of Health regulation, requires communities like Discovery Bay that use groundwater to have sufficient water capacity from its wells to meet the maximum daily demand (MDD) of the system with the highest-capacity well offline. Presently, the district’s water system has an existing deficit of 200 gallons per minute with the highest-capacity well offline. As stated in the WMP, “the new supply well (Well 7) is needed for source capacity to meet the maximum day demand with the largest well offline.” The development of Well 7 will provide the necessary capacity to continue to meet existing obligations and into the future. It’s a Catch-22: we need additional water capacity now, but Well 7 will also provide capacity for future development. However, that future development also includes additional storage tanks, water filters and other associated infrastructure, which are not proposed at this time. The cost of those improvements and the proportionate cost of Well 7 will be paid by future development and not current ratepayers. Those improvements that can be strictly attributed to future development will be paid for by payment

LETTERS Consider volunteers for fire department Editor: I watched with great concern the story on CBS (Monday) evening that detailed the looming cuts to the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District that will, if implemented, reduce the already short-staffed department further. The story focused on Oakley, but the problem will affect all of the area. In one prediction, it was stated that the current 48 firefighter ranks would be reduced to 23, and would result in serious increases to response time. In fact, the person interviewed stated that responses would rise to 20 minutes and longer! We are all too aware of the problem we face in a part of the county where rapid growth, followed by sudden and devastating budget shortfalls, has made it

impossible to continue the spending rates required to keep our citizens safe. There just is no money. As a transplant from the East Coast more than 30 years ago, I have often wondered why we do not have the same volunteer fire departments that are found all over such places as New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. I would guess they are also all over other states, but I can only speak from experience regarding those three. In nearly every suburb, volunteers are trained to fight fires, manage emergencies and provide first-on-scene help to all kinds of situations. These volunteers take their role very seriously as they respond immediately to alarms sent to receivers in their homes to call them into action at their very local (usually a few blocks from their home) fire station. Some sectors have a hybrid system in which permanent fire professionals are joined by volunteers who add their hands, minds and sometimes their lives to those of the professionals. This is a system that works! At any rate, it could be a way to reduce the looming 20-minute response times without adding tremendously to the cost for public safety. At the very least, our county and city officials would be wise to visit some of the volunteer areas of the East Coast to see if there is anything we can implement here. Jack Harper Brentwood

Water bill doubled

Editor: I agree with Kay Martinez (“Water charges all wet,” July 11, Opinion). Having recently moved to Brentwood, I am finding the water bill is double what I paid in Clayton.

of “connection” or developer fees. Once those fees are paid, they offset the cost of any improvements put in place by the district, or go toward new infrastructure needs necessary for new development. New development needs to “pay their way.” As a part of budget deliberations for the current fiscal year (2011-12), the district board took action to moderate the proposed rate increases and successfully cut 5 percent from the current year projected rate, reducing the projected blended (water and wastewater) from 22 percent to 17 percent rate increase for FY 2011-12. It’s also projected that the FY 2012-13 blended rates will increase another 18.4 percent, resulting in a two-year average of 17.4 percent. The average homeowner in Discovery Bay with a 5,000-10,000-squarefoot parcel will see an increase of $138.36 this fiscal year ($11.53 per month) and $181.56 next fiscal year ($15.13 per month). We continue to have some of the lowest rates in the region, and we work tirelessly at keeping those rates at the lowest possible cost. I hope this helps clear any misunderstandings relative to the proposed rate increases. If you seek additional information, please come to the next Town of Discovery Bay Community Services District Board meeting, where this subject will be discussed, on Wednesday, Aug. 3 at 7 p.m. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

We moved from a large house, with almost a quarter acre of landscaping and three people, to a tiny house in Brentwood with a tiny (approximately 100x4½-foot) strip of garden and two people. My water charges in Clayton ranged about $35 to $50 per month. My bill here in Brentwood is averaging $99.33 to $127 per month. Since I work from home, I have a few “no shower” days per week, and when I do get cleaned up, I use one to two inches of water in a tub. There is something definitely wrong here.

Thanks for supporting Liberty students

Editor: As the new school year approaches I wanted to make certain that everyone in our neighboring community that has supported the programs I have been privileged to teach and be a part of were acknowledged and thanked for their support and contributions in the 2010-11 school year.

Also, the graduates of the 2011 internship class and I would like to thank all of the

businesses, schools and their teachers that provided a wonderful internship experience and opportunity: Brentwood Press, His and Her Formal Wear, Harvest Park Bowl, Town Centre Commons, Brentwood Elementary School, Discovery Bay and Timber Point Elementary School, Edna Hill Middle School, Excelsior Middle School and Liberty High School teachers – a great big thanks to all of you. Thanks for making a difference in our future by giving your time and energy to the students you mentored. Exciting news: next year’s internship class has received a grant, written by Katie Collins, who will be their new internship teacher in 2011-12. Last but not least, thanks to everyone who has supported the Liberty Dance Team and Liberty dance classes. Thanks for attending our recitals and participating in our fundraisers. Thanks to Kim Karbowski and Denise Williams of Fabulous Feet for their time, expertise and the use of their facility. Thanks to Gori of El Gallito for volunteering her time in teaching our students Folklorico dance and donating her costumes to be used at the recital. Thanks to Harvest Park Bowl for donating socks for the beginning dance class ’50s dance number (perfect bobby socks!), thanks to the Nijhuis family for purchasing extra wooden dowels for dance canes, thanks to the Webb family for painting 42 dowels to make them canes. And thanks to all parents who help and support their students in visual and performing arts. Shannon Leyen Liberty High School Teacher and Dance Team Advisor

Sailor experiences maritime time travel Brentwood resident Mike Stoiber checked in with word of an unusual week for his son, U.S. Navy Master Chief William Stoiber. Stationed in Grattan, Conn., Chief Stoiber was recently part of the first shake-down cruise for the Navy’s newest ship, the submarine PCU California (PCU, for pre-commissioning unit, is the ship’s designation until it’s commissioned in May of 2012, when it will become the USS California). The shake-down cruise was helpful preparation for Chief Stoiber’s upcoming assignment as Chief of the Boat on the PCU Mississippi, which will soon undergo its own sea trials. The California returned to Newport News, Va. on July 2, and Stoiber headed to Boston. There he boarded the world’s oldest commissioned war ship, the USS Constitution, for its annual Fourth of July Boston Harbor cruise. The Constitution was originally launched in 1798, some 213 years before the California’s first cruise. “These two events were once-in-a-life time experiences because I was able to celebrate our great nation’s freedom by starting out aboard PCU California, the Navy’s newest ship, and capping it off The oldest warship afloat, the USS Constitution, fires a 21-gun salute in Boston Harbor on July 4.

Blast 10U finishes successful season by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer Though the season didn’t end as they’d hoped, members of the Brentwood Blast 10U baseball team were happy with the run they sustained. The Blast claimed titles not only in the East Bay, but in Cooperstown. Recently, the team’s season came to a close in the Mustang division of the Protect Our Nation’s Youth (PONY) East Bay Regional Tournament. In the tournament’s semifinal round, the Brentwood Blast fell 10-3 to South City Blue from San Francisco. “We got to regional and played really well, but just came up a little short,” Blast Coach Scott McCurdy said. “The kids played remarkably well for a six-week stand so I couldn’t be happier.” McCurdy credited pitchers Cooper Gardner and Sean Andrus with helping the Blast stay in the game. Brentwood started the tournament with a 20-1 victory over Vacaville in the opening round. But a 5-3 loss at the hands of Blossom Valley sent the Blast to the elimination bracket.

Brentwood bounced back with a 13-2 win over Paso Robles in the next round. The Blast offense stayed sharp, spearheading a 13-6 triumph over Sierra Valley and advancing the team to the match-up with South City Blue. McCurdy said the bats were still alive against South City, but the hard-hit balls that found their way through the infield against previous competition found gloves in that final game. He credited the hard work of outfielder Max Lawrence, the team’s leadoff hitter, and outfielder/third baseman Nick Legge for keeping the runs coming. “They were beyond all of our expectations and just blew me away how they came together at the end,” McCurdy said. “Really, what I love about this team is the way that they pick each other up every game, every inning.” As of Wednesday, one more Brentwood Blast team was still alive. The youngest division – the Shetlands – played the first game of the SoCal Bracket PONY World Series on Wednesday. The tournament, held in West Covina, concludes Monday.

Local equestrian clears the fear hurdle by Michael Dixon Correspondent

Liberty High junior Morgan Richey has formed a firm bond with her prized horse, Romeo.

When Liberty High junior Morgan Richey was a young girl, she witnessed her mother, Noelle, fall off a horse. Although Noelle is OK now, the incident was a traumatic experience for Morgan. While her love of horses never dwindled, she still harbored a fear of them. Since last January, Morgan has found herself under the tutelage of Linda McCaffery, who helped negate some of Morgan’s fears. She also helped Morgan improve her skills with her horse, Romeo. “(Linda) didn’t take her on as student as much as she saw a girl with a lot of potential,” said Noelle. “She took Morgan under her wing. And in a few months time, she took her horse to several shows.” Much of Morgan’s success came at a competition held at Nelson Ranch in Woodland. There she claimed blue ribbons in Team Pinning, Trail Courses, Equitation, and Western Pleasure. All of this was done with McCaffery, who receives no payment for her services. Morgan said that while the accident to her mother did affect her family in a profound way, what helped her overcome her fear was realizing that the accident wasn’t the horse’s fault. Instead, the horse was spooked by something on the ground. “They’re just such loving and caring animals,” Morgan said. When you get a true bond, they

would do anything for you. They’re not dumb; you’re giving them a huge amount of trust and they understand that.” Morgan’s ultimate equestrian goal is to compete in the world championships, though she acknowledges she has a long way to go. To reach that level, she needs to form an even tighter bond with Romeo. “As long as he’s happy and content, I’d do anything for him,” Morgan said. “I’m pretty brand new to the horse-competition world. It’s a big deal to some people. I went into it hoping we would learn a lot. I’m actually pretty good at it.” For everyone involved, the greatest of Morgan’s accomplishments isn’t represented in a blue ribbon, but in the fact that love has conquered fear. “Her love for horses is a testament to overcoming fear,” Noelle wrote in an e-mail. “She allowed herself to connect and trust again and with that came confidence and a shining example of the importance of faith.” While at Liberty, Morgan has participated in the varsity water polo team for two years, varsity swim team for one, and participates in club water polo teams over the summer to stay in shape. But her equestrian adventures are number-one in her heart. “I just love horses,” Morgan said. “I really think that everybody should experience the bond of a horse.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

New faces crack Speedway winners circle For the first time this season at Antioch Speedway, all five divisions saw new faces in the winner’s circle on Saturday night. Ryan Bernal, high school student from Hollister, waged a wheel-to-wheel battle with All Star Wingless Sprint Car standouts Alex Shute and Billy Macedo in the 25-lap main event. Troy Foulger, reigning track champ in the DIRTcar West modifieds, ended his long streak of second-place finishes with a win. Jon Haney of Brentwood scored his first win ever in the Mini-Trux division after nine years of trying. Dan Downey of San Jose inherited a win in the Four-Bangers after Richard Dragonetti was disqualified. Antioch Speedway 50-year veteran Mike Gustafson of Concord ended the Fred Ryland and Larry Damitz domination by winning the Limited Late Model main event. “I love racing here – the track is banked, racy and has two grooves,” Bernal said in vic-

tory lane. “It was cool battling side by side with Macedo – he’s a really good driver.” Macedo and Bernal dueled lap after lap in the sprint car thriller. Shute stormed into second with a lap to go. “My car was perfect and the race was perfect,” Bernal said. “As long as I’m in a race car, I’m happy. Winning a good clean race makes me more than happy. You can’t describe the feeling.” Foulger’s win brought the fans to their feet. It seemed he couldn’t catch leader Kenny Neu, but on the last turn of the last lap, Neu was slowed by lapped traffic and Foulger dove to the inside to claim the checkered flag. “I’ve been waiting for this win all season,” he said in victory lane. “I set the right rear in the tire ruts high on the track waiting for the opportunity.” Foulger’s triumph came in his old car – the one he’s driven in every win of his career. “I’ve had 20 seconds in the new car, but only the old car can win,” he said. “Kenny is

always fast. Lapped traffic saved me.” Neu finished second, and early leader Michael Salazar made an impressive run to take third. “Finally!” Limited Late Model winner Gustafson said in victory lane. “The car was flying – like it’s supposed to.” Gustafson has been a consistent top runner all season, nearly cracking into the top two positions dominated by Larry Damitz and Fred Ryland. Damitz and Mike Hynes made contact in turn four, the resulting spin causing a radiator hose to break in Damitz’s car. Ryland finished second. Third-place racer Jim Freethy was three abreast with leaders at one point in the race. “That was the most fun I had on the race track in a long time,” he told Gustafson and Ryland in victory lane. Downey’s first win in Four-Bangers came with a lesson. “Don’t wear your sunglasses at night,” he laughed in victory lane. “I had them on for the sun, but couldn’t see in

I wound up dropping to last before I could rip them off.” Downey worked his way all the way to the front and was chasing Richard Dragonetti by time the checkered flag flew. Dragonetti, however, was disqualified in post-race inspection. Haney raised his fists to the air in victory lane after nine years of falling short in various divisions. His dad, Gene Haney, point leader in the Super Hobby Division, joined him for the celebration. “This is so exciting,” the Local 342 Steamfitter said. “I tried and tried, week after week, for nine whole years. I can finally know how it feels to win – and it feels real good.” Racing continues Saturday night at the Speedway when DIRTcar West modifieds, Winged 360 Sprint Cars, Hobby Stocks, Super Hobby Stocks and Mini-Trucks are on the schedule. – Contributed by Mike Adaskaveg

Impact hits Utah As finalists in the 2010 California North Presidents Cup, the East Diablo United Soccer Club U16 Boys team Impact 94 Black earned the privilege of traveling to Salt Lake City, Utah for the US Youth Soccer Association’s Presidents Cup Western Regionals. The team stepped up to represent the state when the Cal North champions surprisingly bowed out of the advanced competition one week after narrowly defeating Impact 94 Black by one goal in the second period of overtime in Elk Grove last April. This was CYSA North’s first appearance in the annual tournament, which draws Division 1 gold and silver teams from the state associations of Washington, Oregon, California-North, California-South, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Alaska and Hawaii.

The Region 4 qualifiers determine the teams in the under-14 through under-17 boys and girls age groups that will advance to the National Presidents Cup. Following two wins and one loss in the preliminary qualifiers, Impact 94 Black advanced out of its group but drew the unlucky role in the quarterfinals of playing the eventual Region 4 Champions, Club America Blue from Southern California. The Impact gave its best efforts but fell 3-0. The trip was well worth the effort: Coach Blanco expressed pride in his team’s performance and sportsmanship, and the boys all enjoyed the out-of-state adventure. Upon returning from Utah, the team settled in and took third place in NorCal Silver Region 3/4/5. – Contributed by Jennifer Charvet

Oakley to get new landmark building by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

After months of planning discussions, the first phase of the Oakley Downtown Specific Plan is about to begin. At a City Council meeting in June, Project Developer Charles Kahn showed council members the initial drawings of the proposed corner of Vintage Parkway and Main Street, which will include a new landmark building that complements the adjacent city hall and space for restaurants and other businesses. Kahn declared the downtown project to be the most exciting of his 25-year career. “I’ve told a number of people as I’ve been working on this project: we’re working in Oakley,” said Kahn. “And they’ll say, ‘That’s the town between Antioch and Brentwood.’ I want this to be the town that defines those two cities, and I think we have a chance to do that with this project.” The council approved the Downtown Specific Plan in February of last year, but progress was delayed until the city acquired properties in Oakley Plaza, home to CentroMart and La Costa. Once the properties were in the city’s possession, planning discussions intensified, and earlier this year, the city demolished the former Round Table Pizza building. As part of the new design, La Costa will be displaced as well, but only temporarily. Councilmember Pat Anderson em-

phasized that La Costa will not be leaving downtown Oakley. It will temporarily close to make way for the construction of the new building, in which La Costa is scheduled to occupy a space. Anderson, who serves on the ad hoc Downtown Committee with Vice Mayor Kevin Romick, said other restaurants have expressed interest in moving into the building, which will have room for multiple restaurants, including a large, 100-seat, two-story restaurant where Round Table used to be.

they originally purchased. “For me, Discovery Bay was a great place to grow up, with the water and the small town,” said Robbie. “It’s grown over the years but it’s still small and it’s a nice place to raise a family.” “Having the three kids stay here – in fact, they all live on the golf course – has been wonderful,” said Terrie. “But as teens, they complained there was nothing to do, even though they lived on the water. I never thought they would stay, and now we can’t get rid of them.” The Ellsworth family tradition is likely to continue for years, as Robbie’s 2-year-old son will soon take his turn running the education gauntlet. It’s even possible that Terrie’s grandchildren’s children will carry on the tradition one day. “OK, now that would be great,” said Terrie. “I would love to be around to see that.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

feel that the BDCP would hurt the Delta. City Council members seemed displeased with Schmutte’s proposal, expressing the belief that Antioch and surrounding communities were the proposal’s secondary concern. Gary Agopian felt that by introducing a new canal, negative impacts on the Delta’s fresh water might be sped up. “Ultimately it may get to the point where what’s best for the state is what you’re proposing,” Agopian told Schmutte. “I’m personally still concerned that by changing it that dramatically, we’re accelerating that process.” According to Phil Harrington, Antioch’s Director of Capital Improvements and Water Rights, though the BDCP is being advertised as a savior, it would actually hurt local fish species and diminish water supply. The BDCP, he claims, might also reduce Antioch’s long-held water rights. “Based on an assumption that the

An artist’s rendering of the landmark building planned for the corner of Vintage Parkway and Main Street. Phase one also includes the construction of a public plaza enhanced by a tranquil water feature to augment Oakley’s quaint downtown ambiance. As part of the next phases, said Romick, Main Street will be widened to provide more accessible diagonal parking – going in a different direction than Brentwood, which recently converted from diagonal to parallel downtown parking. The buildings in the back of the plaza, such as Yogurt Island and Hook, Line & Sinker, will be altered to match the

new buildings at the front of the center. Previous city councils have worked on the downtown plan since Oakley’s incorporation in 1999. Now, finally, 80 acres of downtown Oakley along the Main Street corridor will be enhanced and revitalized. “It’s very exciting to finally be getting this done,” said Romick. City Manager Bryan Montgomery and staff will be drafting construction documents and the project will go out to bid later this year. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

city has the potential to either lose or have our existing water rights diminished by these processes,” Harrington wrote in the staff report, “we could spend millions of dollars more each water year purchasing supplemental water supplies from local water districts. These losses would have to be recovered through our existing water rate structure.” In a PowerPoint presentation, Harrington gave an update on the BDCP and the Delta Stewardship Council, which is working to protect the waterway’s ecological resources. The BDCP Steering Committee was disbanded in November of 2010, but support for the plan has grown this year. The BDCP reformed itself in April. The Delta Stewardship Council has circulated four draft plans for the local waterway since the beginning of the year. The plans are currently in a 45-day public comment period for the fifth draft plan and Environmental Impact Review.

East County residents have long been suspicious of any plan that would pump more water down to Southern California, fearing that not only would it harm local wildlife, but it could deal a major blow to the Northern California farming industry. A handful of members from the West Delta Chapter of the California Striped Bass Association, headquartered in Antioch, held up neon green signs reading “Save Our Water.” Roger Mammon, a member of the California Striped Bass Association and the Restore the Delta Association, was one of those in attendance who feel that the BDCP will only cause more harm to the fragile area. “Over the last 25 years, I’ve just watched the Delta die right before my eyes,” Mammon told the council. “Antioch is a gateway to the Delta, and I hope you take the opportunity to guard the gate.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

more active, varied lifestyles than ever before. Retirees aren’t retiring from life, but rather to

able to take care of day-to-day needs such as bathing and dressing. Assisted care is for more frail individuals, who need a degree of daily assistance and personalized care such as medication management. Both options, however, come with housekeeping, meals and utilities figured into the monthly rent. Costs for independent living apartments can average from $1,600 to $4,500 per month, depending upon the community and apartment size. Assisted care averages an additional $800 to $1,000 more per month. When Bill and Donna Foster began considering a move from Brentwood’s Summerset community into an independent living facility, their main concern was quality of life. The active couple had always been involved in the community, but as Donna began to deal with health problems, the logistics of their lives began to change. For them, the answer was Eskaton Lodge in Brentwood. “We came to Eskaton because Donna’s doctor told her

that because of her back injury, she needed to stop cooking and doing laundry and yard work,” said Bill, 78. “For us it was about quality of life, and that’s what we got here.” “We have good activities here,” added Donna. “And lots of things to do. The staff is wonderful and very caring. We love it here.” So whether it’s independent living, assisted care or more comprehensive nursing that’s needed, most retirement communities offer the opportunity to upgrade your services as your needs change. “What’s nice for seniors here,” said Saari, “is that because we offer assisted and independent living, as most facilities do, it allows residents to age in place. As they get older and require more help with the activities of daily living, you can stay where you are and get the services you need. see Retirement page 9B

“More and more, independent living facilities are becoming increasingly popular with seniors who can still get around and do things but don’t want the bother of taking care of a big home,” said Ken Dunn, assistant manager at Quail Lodge in Antioch. “Places like this become their home and everything is taken care of for them. They have more time for themselves and can still be independent.” The reasons for choosing a retirement community are as individual as they are varied, but for many seniors, the allure of a facility that provides meals, housekeeping and even laundry – while offering onsite salons and exercise rooms, off-site transportation and an active social calendar – is hard to resist. “We call ourselves a cruise ship on land,” said Laurie Saari, sales counselor at Cortona Park in Brentwood. “We’re a service industry and we’re all about the needs of the client. We’re about making their lives as comfortable as we can. We’re like a five-star hotel.” Retirement communities typically offer independent and assisted-care living plus additions or variations tailored to their residents’ needs. Independent living is designed for seniors –typically 55 and up – who are ambulatory and

Seniors sometimes don’t feel the heat, even when temperatures rise to dangerous levels. They’re also less likely to hydrate. And certain medications combined with excessive heat can be dangerous. Here are a few tips to prevent heat-related illnesses: ♦ Keep your air conditioner on a cool setting. Fans aren’t enough – all they do is

re-circulate hot air. ♦ No air conditioner? Cool down at a shopping mall, library or grocery store. ♦ Drink plenty of water. If your urine is light in color, you’re properly hydrated. ♦ Avoid caffeine and alcohol. ♦ Take frequent cool showers or baths. ♦ Wear light-colored, loose fitting, cotton clothing. ♦ When outdoors, wear a hat with a brim to shade the face and ears. – Contributed by Visiting Angels.

Pat Moal’s wish was “to celebrate 75 years with family and friends here at my home.” With the help of An Elderly Wish Foundation, her wish came true in June.

at Moal thought she’d never make it to Christmas 2010, let alone her 75th birthday

in 2011. After feeling run down and losing her appetite for nearly two weeks, Pat went to the hospital. The young physician on call thought it might be allergies, but Pat wasn’t buying it. She consulted another doctor, who ordered lab work and a CAT scan. Dr.

Rakesh Bhutani delivered the blow: “It’s colon cancer.” “I broke down and yelled at him, ‘I don’t want chemo! I’m not interested and I don’t want anything to do with it,’” she recalled. “Chemo is so lonely, and I was afraid.” Her doctor hugged her and said, “I’ll be your buddy. We’ll get through this together.” And they did. After six months of chemotherapy, however, Bhutani see Wish page 7B

Wish from page 5B ran another CAT scan and the results were almost unheard of. “While on the chemo,” he told Moal, “you grew another tumor, which is more aggressive and larger than the first one.” Moal reconciled herself to the process of getting on with her life … and death. But she wasn’t going out without a fight. She attended support groups, and her friend Mary Anne Smith (who lost her own husband to cancer) referred her to An Elderly Wish Foundation (AEWF). Founded by Rebecca Crowder in 2000 following the loss her mother, the nonprofit foundation has spent a decade making wishes come true for terminally ill seniors. In a letter to AEWF Executive Director Mary Chapman, Moal wrote, “My wish is to celebrate 75 years with family and friends here at my home.” As usual, AEWF was happy to lend a hand. On June 4 of this year, Moal became the recipient of AEWF’s wish No. 108. The occasion was especially poignant since the theme of this year’s American Cancer Society Relay For Life is One More Birthday – and Pat got to celebrate one of her best ever. AEWF arranged for Jerry Hinkle from Brentwood’s Sticky Chicken & Ribs to provide the food. AEWF paid for the lunch, beverages, cake and decorations. The festivities drew more than 50 friends and family, some of whom flew in from as far as Utah. Among them were sons Patrick Jones and Michael Jones,

daughter Karen Nunes, and Moal’s friends from Immaculate Heart of Mary Crafting Bee. Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor and Congressman John Garamendi sent Pat congratulatory certificates honoring her on her 75th birthday. When asked what has been the biggest surprise in this journey, Moal didn’t miss a beat: “The offers of support. If I could give advice to anyone who has a friend or loved one going through this, I would tell them to ‘keep them in the loop’ and not forget about them. Tell them about your life and the ‘life going on out there’ in general.” When asked what her biggest challenge has been, she said quietly, “I don’t think it’s happened yet.” Moal is in the final stages of her cancer now but you won’t find her feeling sorry for herself. “Not one of us has spent time dwelling on the cancer,” she said. “We just celebrate the many facets of daily life and I love them (family and friends) for that.” When asked what guests could bring to her birthday celebration, Moal told her friends to bring decorated rocks for her garden in exchange for hand-painted rocks for their own gardens. The rocks were permanent reminders of Moal’s determination, hope and loving heart.

The first of Summerset I’s 471 homes were built in 1994, at what was once Brentwood’s remote western boundary. By the time the last of Summerset Orchards’ 647 homes were finished, more than 2,000 had been built for seniors 55 and older – people simply not ready to slow down. “The development of Summerset was significant for Brentwood in a lot of ways,” said Bill Hill, Brentwood’s mayor at the time Summerset was approved. It brought to the city thousands of mature residents with disposable income, which in turn fueled a need for more landscapers, golf cart companies, medical equipment providers and doctors. Since Summersetters had no school-age children, schools benefited from development fees without an increase in student populations, and helped Brentwood provide a kind of housing lacking at the time. Each of the four subdivisions – which also include Summerset Palms (440 houses) and Summerset Vista (464) – operates its own homeowners association and community center, and employs its own recreation director. Each runs a jam-packed activity schedule including golf (The Golf Club at Brentwood’s championship course meanders through the developments), exercise classes, bocce leagues and social gatherings. The charitable Summerset Kare Bears provide one way for residents to volunteer, and you can count on one of the city’s highest voter turnouts whenever election time comes around. “Everyone is close to the same age,”

said Pruitt. “They have similar interests and backgrounds, like the same music and have the same energy and activity level.” Residents also share the same health problems associated with growing older, a factor Summerset I’s Diane McClain believes brings neighbors closer. Unlike at other locations, she said, everyone knows their neighbors, and if someone hasn’t been seen out and about, there’s sure to be someone knocking on the door doing a welfare check. The Brentwood police have recently conducted a program called Triad, which teaches seniors how to protect themselves from scam artists. Houses at Summerset range from 1,200 to 2,500 square feet. Designed for low-maintenance, the houses feature open floor plans and amenities such as fireplaces, hardwood floors and attached garages with driveways for visitor parking. Each community is gated, and its former edge-oftown location is now bustling with shopping centers, restaurants, parks and a pair of nearby hospitals (John Muir Medical Center in Brentwood and Kaiser Hospital in Antioch). So whether it’s lots of activities, lowmaintenance homes, socializing or simply a beautiful, quiet and well-kept neighborhood, Summerset communities offer what many of today’s active seniors are looking for. Throw in the benefits of thousands of neighbors who enjoy the same things, and it’s a perfect fit for many. “I can’t tell you,” said McClain, “how many people say, ‘Moving here was the best decision I ever made.’” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Senior living – what to look for

C

onsidering a move to a retirement community? For many, the list of items to

bear in mind can be overwhelming. But the following few tips should help organize your priorities as you begin the process of choosing a new home:

Amenities

Many of today’s retirement communities offer similar options, but their range of services can vary. When shopping for a community, consider what is important to you. Are dining options paramount or do fitness programs take priority? Do you prefer a setting that offers abundant social options or do you value privacy? Make a list of factors tailored to you and bring it with you as you visit facilities

Location

Finding a community that suits your geographical needs is critical, so think about what that means to you. Does the perfect location mean proximity to your children and grandchildren? How important to you is

nearby shopping and dining? Is the climate important or is nearby medical care and doctor access your top priority?

Future needs

Retirement communities are typically designed for independent living, but many combine a variety of services such as assisted care, personal care and memory care. When deciding on a community, consider your future needs. Many facilities offer tiered care options that allow you stay in place as your health needs change.

THEPRESS.NET

Retirement from page 3B “The biggest misconception about retirement communities is that it’s a nursing home and they are coming here to die. But of course it’s completely the opposite. They’re not giving up their independence; they’re just giving up the day-to-day work of running a home. We do it all for them.”

Cost

Cost is a factor for most seniors, so when considering a retirement community, be clear on its up-front, ongoing monthly, and future fees.

Staff

When visiting facilities, pay attention to the staff. Observe how they interact with the residents. Do they know everyone by name? Are they patient and cheerful? Do they appear to do their best to accommodate requests? If possible, talk to some of the residents about the facility’s staff and employees. Do you or a loved one need
