Fire district, developer talks continue by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer
The East Contra Costa Fire Protection District board this week held off on publicly stating its opinion on a proposed urban limit line (ULL) expansion initiative and associated elements, and will continue discussions with the measure’s leaders on a memorandum of understanding (MOU) involving fire protection for a possible large housing project that could materialize if Brentwood voters approve the initiative in November. The proposed measure — spearheaded by a group of local developers, including longtime Brentwood farmer and developer Ron Nunn — would move the mark at which urban development must stop, clearing the way for a proposed 815-acre project of up to 2,400 residential units (at least 80% age-restricted, active adultspecific), with other elements, situated north of Balfour Road, east

The first version of the proposed MOU between the resourcestretched, three-station district and the development group (GBN
Partners LLC a ) stipulated that the group would fund equipment and startup costs for a two-person rescue squad (about $750,000); collaborate with the district, the city and other developers to identify the squad’s operating funding;
establish or participate in a community facilities district to provide ongoing funding for fire protection and emergency response services, at levels consistent with those provided by other new developments in Brentwood; participate with other new development — on a fair-share basis — to fund the development, design and construction of a new fire station; and broadly work with the district and city on long-term funding mechanisms for the district’s needs. The development group had requested the district endorse the measure and project in light of its commitments. Before the board decided to continue discussions, Fire Chief Brian Helmick said the district needs to do whatever it can to improve community service levels — currently, three stations covering approximately 249 square miles and over 115,000 residents — and the MOU was designed to put

Star Power Algae prompts study, possible solutions On The Track by Dawnmarie Fehr Correspondent
Blue-green algae is a hot topic in Discovery Bay. While some residents are unconcerned each summer as the algae’s trademark scum appears atop stagnant water in the bays around town, many are worried about the algal blooms’ toxic effects. The Discovery Bay Community Foundation (DBCF) has formed a harmful algae bloom (HAB) subcommittee, partnering with agencies across the state to help mitigate the epidemic. “This team includes top cyanobacteria scientists from around the state, including scientists from UC Davis, USC, several water districts and

water board personal,” said DBCF founder Jim Mattison. “I reached out to ... see if they could help us figure out what we can do with our stagnant 32 bays that are now very bad.” Since 2017, the foundation has worked with these entities to ascertain why the algae has become a significant issue in the last four years. Each month, Mattison takes a team of scientists from the Department
of Water Resources (DWR) around the town’s bays to take water samples. And he believes they’ve identified the root cause of the blooms’ recent escalations. “We’ve been around the 32 bays, and we know the main culprit are the fertilizers from the central valley farmers that end up in the Delta,” Mattison said. “They contain large amounts of nitrates and phosphates.”

The fertilizers feed the algae, and when the right conditions are met — warm, still, shallow water — the algae begin blooming, releasing microcystins, a toxin harmful to humans and animals. Mattison explained the subcommittee has applied and been approved for a state grant to conduct a load study to find out where and how the fertilizers and nutrients are entering the Discovery Bay waterways. He said there are still hurdles before funds are received, but expects a plan will be devised to neutralize the fertilizers in the water.

The timeline for work on the project involving the new school entrance and main administration building, along with renovations to the cafeteria, hasn’t yet been established, Harper said. On the heels of that project, Buildings B, C and D will be torn down and replaced with the two-story, U-shaped building housing the 16-20 new classrooms, increasing the total number of classrooms on campus. That project isn’t expected to begin until the main administration building opens. “It’s definitely an older school,” said Liberty student Jay Butterfield. “But everything is going to clean up nice.” The Liberty football team is expected to play its Sept. 13 home game against Monte Vista at Heritage High School, and its Sept. 21 home game against Cardinal Newman at Freedom High School. The Lions’ first home game back at Ohmstede Field is slated for Oct. 4 against Antioch. For more information on Measure U, visit www.bit.ly/MEASUREU.
Brentwood’s reigning state champion Liberty High School football team is expected to play only two of its five regularly scheduled home games on campus this season. But the Lions faithful are cheering loudly — the temporary changes will give way to stadium renovations and eventual on-campus facility improvements. “This is just phase one of awesome things for the community,” said Ryan Partridge, the school’s athletic director and head varsity football coach. “It will affect so many people. We are just so excited about it.” Come October, Ohmstede Field is expected to feature a new entrance, fresh and expanded home-side bleachers, and a redone ticket booth, concession stand and bathrooms. And those improvements are just the kickoff for what’s to come, all courtesy of Measure U — a $122 million bond measure approved by area voters in 2016.
venient distance from where Lions sports squads practice. The school’s pool will also be renovated, expanding to regulation size. Those improvements alone were enough to put smiles on several varsity football players’ faces this week, as the team practiced near several of the stadium’s evolving amenities. Senior wide receiver and defensive back Joshua Dinkins said he can’t wait to play in the Lions’ revamped stadium. “It’s going to be amazing, especially coming off last year,” he said, referring to the state-championship season. “I cannot wait to play the first game back on this actual field. There is nothing better.” Harper said when additional amenities are finished, she looks forward to reliving the thrill she felt when a new Measure Ufunded softball field debuted in the spring. “The excitement is unbelievable,” Harper said. “When the softball field was done, it just blew everyone away. You see those types of facilities at other schools, but when you see those facilities at your school, it takes your breath away.”
A new weight room behind and underneath the home-side bleachers, and four basketball courts for use by physical education classes, as well as students during lunch, are slated for completion in the beginning of November; a new aquatic center and additional tennis courts are scheduled to open in June 2020; and a new school entrance, main administration building, remodeled cafeteria and a new U-shaped classroom building featuring 16-20 classrooms are all on the horizon. “Liberty has a lot of character and charm, but our students deserve updated facilities,” said Principal Heather Harper, “and we are just so grateful that we are able to provide — through the Measure U bond — the ability for our students to play sports, go to classes, have lunch in updated, 21st-century facilities.” The new stadium bleachers will accommodate up to 2,200 people, an increase of a few hundred, for games, rallies and other events. The future weight room will replace an old, rickety center housed inside a double-wide trailer, situated an incon-

Fire district explores ways to expand service by Tony Kukulich Staff Writer
Looking to improve fire service to city residents, the Brentwood City Council and the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (ECCFPD) Board of Directors each unanimously approved a service enhancement concept intended to roll two-person rescue squads onto the streets. A rescue squad consists of two firefighter/EMTs, initially operating out of existing stations, who will respond primarily to medical calls, currently accounting for 66% of calls in the district and 71% of calls in Brentwood. ECCFPD Fire Board Director Joe Young said the concept is based on two primary objectives. Once sustainable funding for a new station has been established, implementing a squad will reduce the amount of time before new resources can begin servicing the community. Additionally, hiring and training the six firefighters required to operate three rescue squad shifts provides a stepping stone to hiring and training the nine firefighters needed to operate an engine company. “From the day you say, ‘Let’s go with a new station; we have the money,’ it’s three years until you’ve got it in operation,” said Young. “And we said, ‘That’s a long time.If we know we’re going to start a station, is there a way to get the benefit earlier and to jumpstart the process?’ What we concluded is that a squad would be that type of arrangement.” Young estimated that a squad — by operating out of an existing station — can
be made operational in approximately 12 months at a cost of $750,000, thereby providing an additional resource to the district and the community a full two years sooner than waiting for a new engine station. The fully loaded cost to operate a rescue squad is pegged at $3 million. The district operates three stations, while their strategic plan released last year identified a current need for six stations and a projected need for a total of nine stations, based on expected development and growth in the coming years. ECCFPD is examining funding opportunities to reach the six-station goal, and it appears likely that a benefit assessment or parcel tax will be put before voters sometime in 2020. To reach the ninestation goal, the district will look to a funding source that has been largely untapped since the district’s founding: developers. “(The fire district) has not, over the years, been at the table when developments are coming through our process,” said Brentwood City Manager Gus Vina. “That kind of speaks for itself. Fundamentally, the first real important change is that (the district) is now at the table. So they can speak directly and with authority about what is needed. That’s already happening. That’s now in motion.” The first attempt to implement the rescue squad concept hit a snag on Monday when ECCFPD Fire Chief Brian Helmick introduced a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the district and GBN Partners, LLC, a Blackhawk Nunn company,
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13
in which the developers would have provided $750,000 to the district to fund the startup of a rescue squad. At the same time, the district would offer a resolution of support for Measure L, the proposal to move the city’s urban limit line and allow the development of 2,400 homes on 815 acres known as the Vineyards at Deer Creek. The board balked at the MOU and opted not to put it to a vote, and Fire Board President Brian Oftedal directed Helmick to re-enter negotiations with the developers. Development of the service enhancement concept sprang from cooperation between the city’s Fire and Medical Services Ad Hoc Committee, consisting of Councilmember Karen Rarey and Vice Mayor Joel Bryant and the district’s Strategic Planning Ad Hoc Committee, consisting of Young and Director Carrie Nash. Funding for the rescue squads is expected to come through increased developer impact fees and the establishment of a community facilities district (CFD), a move that ECCFPD is currently pursuing. “We cannot make new development projects pay for the current fire and medical services deficit we are in,” said Rarey. “But we can, by establishing fire community facility district assessments to fund fire personnel, and increasing fire impact fees for new stations, make new development pay for the impact they’ll have on our community, above and beyond the funds ECCFPD would receive from property taxes.” Helmick described the rescue squad con-
cept as a bridge from the time development begins until long-term funding provided by CFDs and property taxes accumulate to the level at which a full-service engine company can be made operational. “It’s all about trying to be innovative and creative because it’s revenue that makes it very difficult for us to staff an engine company,” said Helmick. “We know that it’s going to take time for development to bring in the revenues to increase service levels of stations and engines. So what we are attempting to do is utilize developers in a collaborative effort to implement this bridge concept.” Oakley City Manager Bryan Montgomery said Oakley will be watching how this process develops before taking any steps to follow suit. “We are interested in seeing how the medical squad will work, and can evaluate after it has been implemented for a while,” said Montgomery. “Unfortunately, Oakley doesn’t have nearly the same revenue flow that Brentwood does.” Vina believes the rescue squads are an important step in closing the district’s service gap, but he emphasized that work needs to continue. “It is not the solution, ultimately,” said Vina. “The district still needs to get to nine stations eventually, and those need to be engine companies, not two-person squads. This is a jump-start.” For more information, visit www. eccfpd.org. To comment, visit www.thepress.net

Sheriff’s office moves to Brentwood “ We’re going to be able
by Tony Kukulich Staff Writer
The Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff (CCCSO) Delta Station has occupied the building on O’Hara Avenue in Oakley for so long that no one knows exactly when they moved in, but that long run came to an end Monday morning, Aug. 19, when the CCCSO completed their move to the Brentwood Police Department (BPD) headquarters on Brentwood Boulevard. Lt. Matt Foley of the CCCSO said the best guess was that his agency has occupied that space since the 1950s. After nearly 70 years, there are bound to be some feelings related to the move. “We’re going to miss being in Oakley,” said Foley. “Oakley people are good and hospitable to us, which we enjoyed. It’s nice working closely with their chief. So, yeah, there’s a little nostalgia. But we’re moving on to a new beginning. I’m sure we’ll do the same with Brentwood.” The move has been in discussion for approximately five years, said Foley. Last November, the Brentwood City Council approved the effort to modify the police headquarters to meet the needs of the sheriff’s office. At the time, the construction and design costs totaled nearly $670,000 — a cost absorbed by the county. While the move brings benefits to the sheriff ’s office, BPD expects to ben-

Lazy Dog coming to Streets of Brentwood by Deanna Gordon Staff Writer
The Brentwood Planning Commission unanimously approved a design review Tuesday to bring a new Lazy Dog restaurant to the Streets of Brentwood. The proposal is to construct an 8,014-square-foot restaurant with a 1,416-square-foot, dog-friendly patio at 2435 Sand Creek Road, east of Black Angus and west of Sprouts. The design includes 100 parking spaces — 80 full-sized, 15 compact and five handicapaccessible. Commissioner Seana Fippin questioned Jared Taylor, applicant and representative for developer Golden Properties, about whether the restaurants ever experienced issues with dog aggression on its patios. Taylor said he was unaware of any, but if one were to arise, the dog and its owner would be asked to leave, as it is not tolerated. He also said non-service dogs never enter the restaurant — hosts meet guests with dogs outside to seat them on the patio through a separate door. Fippin, a personal fan of the resaurant, praised the project, stating it would be a positive addition to the city. Lazy Dog is based in southern California and currently has four Bay Area locations: Concord, Dublin, Cupertino and Newark. The commission also unanimously approved a design review and conditional use permit in a 4-0 vote for a Rotten Robbie gas station, car wash and convenience
store at Lone Tree Way and Fairview Avenue, 6860 and 6890 Lone Tree Way. This item was continued from the July 16 meeting after concerns were raised about potential economic impacts to local businesses and whether adequate notice was given to the public regarding the project. Paul Martin, owner of Lone Tree Center, said he thinks the project will revitalize the area. Commissioner Emily Cross said the only red flag it raises for her is whether the project will bring enough high-paying jobs. “ B u t we are looking at the big picture, not just one v a r i ab l e,” Cross said. “That area needs development; that area needs something that will make that land usable. I feel like it’s going to contribute to the well-being of the community.” Fippin and Commissioner Cyndi Hankins agreed, stating they have looked extensively at the City of Brentwood’s General Plan to ensure the project is in accordance. “It is not our job to determine economic affairs,” Fippin said. “Our job is to make sure this conforms to the General Plan and talk with the public.” “That corner has been undeveloped for years, and it does need to be developed,” Hankins added.

INVERTED YIELD CURVE? So the big economic news last week was the “inverted yield curve.” This is when rates on long-term US treasury investments are lower than the short-term ones. Normally, the rates are higher for the longer-term. When it’s inverted, it usually means that investors are pessimistic about the economy in the short-term. You’ll hear a lot in the news that the inverted yield curve has “accurately predicted the last 9 recessions since WWII.” They make it sound like a recession is guaranteed to happen in our very near future. But sometimes it’s 12-24 months until a recession hits, and some of the recessions have been so mild they are hardly noticed until they are over. Other countries around the world have had inverted yield curves in the past where a recession didn’t follow right away. One point to keep in mind with predictions is whether an event is actually causing something to happen, or just a coincidence. Take the Super Bowl, for example. Every first Sunday in February, the city hosting the event
will see a big increase in tourism. And then about 4 months later, the average temperature of that city rises noticeably for several months. The Super Bowl certainly caused the rise in tourism, but the arrival of Summer is just a coincidence. But the stock market sure got spooked by the inverted yield curve, thinking the odds of a recession just went up. However, almost immediately the Trump administration announced they may back off on some of their planned tariffs on Chinese goods. I’m thinking they will do whatever they can to avoid a recession prior to the 2020 presidential election. On top of that, we may see mortgage rates drop again in response to all of the above. The bottom line is that no one knows for sure if we are about to experience a recession, or how strong or mild it will be. If you have questions about real estate, call me at (925) 240-MOVE (6683).

Your key to finding the right local real estate professional.
I like to think I’m a new kind of real estate professional. I combine the personal service of a traditional, neighborhood agent with the latest, web-based and mobile technologies to create an efficient, secure and convenient transaction. I am an East Bay native and a second-generation realtor. I studied economics at Westmont College, in Santa Barbara, and I did my graduate work at
the University of Colorado at Denver. I also have a certificate in computer programming from Denver Technical College. I specialize in marketing and selling single-family homes and other residential units for primary owneroccupants and investors throughout East Contra Costa County. Brentwood is my home, but my friends and clients take me to Antioch,
Oakley and Discovery Bay almost daily. I don’t just work in these neighborhoods, I live my life in them. My dad taught me real estate is about cooperation, about serving others and, mostly, about hard work. My experience has also taught me it is as rewarding as anything else I could do; my clients always become my friends, even if we don’t start out that way.
As a Local Realtor & Mom of two boys, keeping your family happy is important to me. I am not only working smarter, but working harder to make sure your dream home becomes your reality!

72nd Annual Rio Vista Bass Derby and Festival coming Oct. 11-13 The Rio Vista Chamber of Commerce, along with the city of Rio Vista, will host the 72nd Annual Rio Vista Bass Derby and Festival October 11, 12 and 13. This muchanticipated event is held in the heart of the Sacramento Delta, in downtown Rio Vista, along the Sacramento River. There is something for everyone and fun for the entire family, including the oldest bass (striper) derby fishing event on the West Coast, with thousands of dollars in prizes. Another highlight is the Bass Festival — full of fun for everyone with a carnival and midway, vendor booths, live musical entertainment, food and drink booths, a farmers market, old-fashioned downtown parade, the Lions Club Car Show and a pancake breakfast. On Saturday, the evening ends with fireworks on the river, with the best view along the city’s new river promenade. Check the festival website at bassfestival.com for complete event and entertainment schedules. The Bass Derby, running from 6 a.m. Friday, Oct. 11, until 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13, features double the prizes from previous years. This year, first place for striped bass is $3,000, second place is $1,500 and third place $1,000. For the salmon and sturgeon prizes, first place is $1,000, second place $500 and third place $200 in each category. According to the official rules posted at www.bassfestival.com, participants can fish anywhere on the Delta from Sacramento to
the Bay. Target lengths will be set at the start of the derby for striped bass and sturgeon, whereas salmon and black bass prizes will be awarded based on greatest weight. Entry fee for the derby remains at $50 and includes an official Bass Derby hat (for the first 300 entries) plus an entry into the fisherman’s raffle, with an extensive array of raffle prizes. Non-fishermen can also purchase raffle tickets at $10 each, or 3 for $20. Get the kids out to fish in the kids’ class for those up to age 15 for only $5. The kids’ derby is for largest catfish and target-length striper, and prizes include bikes, gift cards and fishing gear. Derby tickets go on sale Sept. 1 and
can be purchased at various bait shops, online at www.bassfestival.com or at the Rio Vista Visitor Center, 33 N. 2nd Street. Since there is never an entry or parking fee for this popular Bass Derby Festival, families can take full advantage of all the fun. To make access easier this year, for the first time, the Delta Breeze transportation system will be running a shuttle bus
on Saturday from the Trilogy and Homecoming subdivisions to the festival. More information can be found at www.facebook. com/riovistabassderby or on www. bassfestival.com. Stop by the Rio Vista Visitor Center or call the chamber at 707-374-2700 for festival merchandise, tickets and more information.

Staying cool in summer crucial for seniors Every morning, I ask Alexa, “What is the weather today?” and receive a very pleasant response telling me the current temperature, the amount of clouds versus sunshine and the forecast for the entire day. On Fridays, she even wishes me a good Senior weekend. My own orner personal forecaster. Lately, the span of degrees can range from 55 to 106, so I can dress accordingly, depending on what time of day I will venture out. The Marla past few weeks have Luckhardt been pretty warm, so my ensemble in the afternoons has consisted of a bathing suit, cover up and pool shoes. I hop into the golf cart with suntan lotion slathered all over and drive the two blocks to the pool, where I immediately take off that cover up and get in the water. My coolingoff goal is coupled with a nice way to exercise and chat with some other Summerset residents and their families. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have access to a pool, but if I didn’t, I would surely stay indoors during the heat’s peak hours. Temperatures of 90 degrees and higher are not healthy to be in, especially for seniors. The possibilities of heat stroke, sunburn and dehydration increase as the numbers go up. Most of us go from an air-conditioned home to an airconditioned car and venture out to stores or restaurants that are also cool, but sometimes it’s necessary to be outdoors even on the hottest of hot days. If you walk for exercise, it’s best
to go early in the morning or later in the evening when the sun is not so strong. Wear your sunscreen and a hat, along with sunglasses to protect your eyes. Your glasses should have UV protection, which helps shield your eyes from the sun’s dangerous rays. Polarized sunglasses eliminate glare. Having ultraviolet protection is crucial, while polarization is more of a preference. These two features are different, while working in similar ways, but each offers specific benefits. If your stroll is longer than a few blocks, it makes sense to take a water bottle to avoid dehydration. Although it’s safer and more pleasant to go with a friend, when you don’t, be sure to set a certain route, let someone know your path, when you’re planning to walk and that you’re going solo. If it’s still very warm, take a small towel or neckerchief soaked in cool water to put around your neck. That will immediately bring your body temperature down. When we were kids, we basked in the sun on the beach or by a pool for hours, trying to get that perfect tan. We now know those face reflectors and pure baby oil were the worst possible things for our skin. Besides avoiding too much sun, the best thing to do is cover up as much as possible and use

the highest sun protection factor (SPF) you can find. When choosing the right product, investigate several things. Sunscreens are only good if they last a long time and will not wash off while swimming. Read the labels to see if there are any ingredients you may be sensitive to, so you avoid a breakout or rash. They make hypoallergenic lotions for sensitive skin and special creams for the face, neck and ears. Never forget to cover your earlobes with good sunscreen, as that’s one of the more common areas at risk of skin cancer. Sunscreens with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide pose fewer risk for allergic reactions, and they also protect against “UVA” and “UVB” rays (which I’ll get to in a moment). As with any

new skin care product, it’s a good idea to use a small amount to patch test when trying a new sunscreen. You’ll want to do this at least a day or two ahead of using it all over. There are two basic types of ultraviolet rays that reach us: UVB and UVA. UVB rays are the ones that cause sunburn, and UVA rays penetrate more deeply into our skin, where they play a bigger role in premature skin aging and skin cancer risk. Neither one is healthy, and don’t forget those dastardly wrinkles! The best way to avoid skin damage is to be out in the sun for a minimal amount of time, getting some wonderful and natural vitamin D. If you’re doing a water activity, use the sunscreen best suited for your skin type, and if you have really sensitive skin, they make long-sleeve swim shirts for added protection. If you’re just outside enjoying the weather, wear that hat, those sunglasses and lightweight, long sleeves. Sit in the shade and sip on that water bottle. Alexa says the next week or so will be quite toasty! Marla Luckhardt is a Brentwood resident who works with several local senior care and advocacy groups. Reach her at email@example.com.

ESTATE PLANNING HOT TOPICS
By Michael J. Amthor, Esq. Many of you like to be kept up to date on the federal estate tax exemption. For those who don’t know what this is, the exemption amount is the amount of assets you may transfer upon death that are exempt from federal estate taxes. In other words, assets that are lower than the exemption amount do not incur an estate tax. Starting January 1, 2018, the exemption jumped from $5.49 million to $11.18 million per person, or $22.36 million for married couples. The exemption amount is set to increase annually indexed with inflation through December 31, 2025. In 2019, the exemption amount is $11.4 million, or $22.8 million for married couples. For those who have a family member with a disability, an ABLE account is something you should look into. ABLE stands for “Achieving a Better Life Experience Act.” This act allows people with disabilities, along with their families, to save for disability-related expenses and maintain Medi-Cal eligibility and other needs-based public benefits, such as SSI. Before this federal law was enacted, individuals with disabilities could not have money in their own names, receive inheritance or even save money

Thinking about Gifting Real Property While You Are Alive? Beware! by Joan M.Grimes, Esq. and Jennifer L.Wallis, Esq.
Many people have come to my office either alone or with their children asking me to prepare a Grant Deed to transfer their real property to their children. When I ask them why they want to do this, they usually respond with the following: (1) they want to avoid probate; (2) they do not need the property anymore; or (3) they can no longer afford the property. In response, I inform them that transferring the property to their children or a third party will avoid probate and while it may be true that they don’t need the property or can’t afford the property, there may be unintended consequences of the gift. First, gifting real property to a child means you will have no legal control over the real property. If you decide that you want or need the property back for some reason, the child will be under no legal obligation to transfer it back. Second, you may need the money. I tell people that just when you think you have plenty of money, something happens to change the situation. Therefore, until you are not here (i.e. you are sure you don’t need any more money), please do not give away your stuff! You have worked hard for your assets and you should control them as long as possible. If you live to be very old, you may need the money to help provide for your care. Third, your children will benefit from inheriting the property rather than receiving as a gift because of the tax benefits. When your children inherit your property, they will receive a full step-up in basis at your death.
For example, if you purchased the property for $50,000 and it is worth $500,000 at the time of your death, your children will receive a full step-up in basis from $50,000 to $500,000. If your children sell the property immediately after your death, they will not owe any capital gains because the basis was stepped-up to the fair market value at the time of your death. In contrast, if you gave them the same property before you died, your children would have to pay taxes on the gain between $50,000 and $500,000. Yuck!!! In most cases, it is a bad idea to gift real property to children while you are still living. If you really do not need the property, an alternative is to transfer the property into a Revocable Living Trust so your children will inherit the property after your death. Additionally, you can prepare a real property agreement to allow for your children to use or live in the property while you are alive. This way you retain control over the property and your children receive the step-up in basis upon your death. If you have any questions regarding the transfer of real property I see people Monday - Friday for a FREE 30 minute consultation in Walnut Creek and Brentwood.

result in increased student success and improved college and career readiness,” Bingham said. “Many of the schools we work with are committed to that level of excellence, and that is reflected in their careful planning, intentional implementation of our materials and dedication to ongoing improvement.” The career-focused course at AHS is administered to freshmen and sophomores, and it has been able to help students from all different backgrounds plan for their future, teacher Nick Wisley said. One student who was struggling at AHS improved his grades after learning what kinds of careers were attainable if he attended higher education. “His grades turned around, and he decided he wanted to continue to go to school after that moment,” Wisley said. “That’s what I love about this course. It’s teaching life.”

Make sure you are eating meals together, playing together and really enjoying each other’s company.

Divorce doesn’t change the fact that you love your children. Every parent wants the best for their kids. However, divorce complicates parenting. Parents should be unified in their approach to discipline and other child-rearing issues. Here’s how: Avoid a Contentious Divorce One of the biggest challenges to co-parenting well after a divorce is the divorce process. Too often, spouses go into court like warriors, trying to do as much damage to each other as possible. It is much better to use mediation in your divorce. This type of approach will minimize stress and allow you to work together to create a parenting plan that will work for both parents and your children.

If your argument were true
Editor: In response to Gerald Marshall (opinion on Aug. 9, 2019) — if the information behind your argument were true, most Americans (myself included) would agree that your concerns are sound and valid. Unfortunately, the information is either not true or is lacking qualifying information. First, no Democrat is advocating for “open borders.” If you can produce proof of such, I can change that statement. Advocating for the lawful rights of asylum seekers in accordance with our international obligations through treaties and by federal law is not advocating for open borders. It’s advocating for the U.S. to adhere to the law and our commitments to international agreements. Regarding providing “free housing, medical, food and education” to undocumented immigrants — by law, undocumented immigrants are banned from federal welfare programs. HUD secretary Ben Carson is pushing to close a “loophole” in federal housing aid for cases (about 32,000) where the head of household is a U.S. citizen (a requirement), but undocumented individuals may be living there as well. This is not providing housing for all immigrants. Also, the current waitlist for housing aid is in the millions, so wrenching families apart for 32,000 cases won’t fix the housing crisis. Medical: California’s budget includes $98 million to provide medical care to undocumented 19- to 25-year-olds. That may sound like a lot, but considering this demographic contributes $3 billion annually in property, excise, income (yes, about
9% contribute income tax) and sales tax and don’t receive anything back like worker’s comp or social security, it isn’t a lot. The cost will be paid by the money they are already contributing, meaning no Californian will be paying for it. Food: As no undocumented immigrant qualifies for food assistance, I’m unsure what you mean here. Education: I don’t have a rebuttal for this, as it’s true undocumented immigrants are allowed to attend California schools. Regarding ICE rounding immigrants up “even after they have had their day in court,” see Pereira v. Sessions, the recent Supreme Court decision banning ICE from sending notice to appear (NTA) letters that did not provide a date or location to appear to, instead listing “TBA.” Immigrants who received those notices were then ordered to be deported in absentia because they failed to show. Since that decision, ICE has been caught issuing NTAs with fake dates, again with the same intent and outcomes. So no, “they” have not had their “day in court.” As an American who loves this country, I’m sure you believe this country’s laws should be respected and followed. Based on this information, I ask you, who exactly isn’t following our laws? Asylum seekers granted legal rights by our laws who are being denied those rights? Or an administration hell-bent on breaking our laws and dehumanizing people asking for refuge in the country that claims to defend human rights to the world? And humanitarian reasons? Yes, very much so. As we all should, if we believe in American and Christian principles. Art Main Brentwood

Trampolinist bounces to bronze medal by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer
Former Oakley gymnast Ruben Padilla entered the Pan American Games in Peru earlier this month, knowing the competition was stiff and the event’s trampolines not as bouncy as usual. But, it turned out, little could keep him from jumping nearly to the top of the leaderboard. The 18-year-old secured a bronze medal against the top athletes in the Western Hemisphere, and his 57.160 final score was just 0.28 points behind winner Jeremy Chartier of Canada. “It went really good,” said Padilla, one of several athletes to note that the event’s trampolines weren’t as bouncy as usual. “I am happy with the outcome. I wasn’t expecting a medal there.” Padilla competed like he was soaring for a medal from the beginning of the two-day competition. The former Freedom High student finished second in the preliminary round, just 0.245 points behind leader and teammate Jeffrey Gluckstein, before pulling off a medal-winning performance in the finals, with one of his best performances ever, he said. Competitors are judged on routine difficulty, execution, time of flight and horizontal displacement from the center of the trampoline. “At finals, all I wanted to do was hit my routine and I’d be happy with that,” Padilla said. “I didn’t care a whole lot about placing, and I did one of the best routines I have ever done.” As one of the final competitors to fly, Padilla didn’t have to wait long to know he medaled, but the results were agonizingly close, with just 0.15 points separating

Former Oakley resident Ruben Padilla recently won a bronze medal in the trampoline competition at the Pan American Games in Peru. winner Chartier from silver medalist Gluckstein, 0.13 points between Gluckstein and Padilla for second place, and 0.035 points between Padilla and fourth-place finisher Angel Hernandez of Colombia. The mathematical drama was almost too much for Padilla’s parents to bear as they watched live from the
stands. “We were shocked; I cried,” said Nelia Padilla, Ruben’s mother. “My husband was kinda shaky. He couldn’t believe it.” “It’s amazing,” added Jerry Padilla, Ruben’s father. “You have that pride. You get the chills. It’s a good feeling.” Ruben’s bronze win is yet another notable achievement in his still-evolving 13-year story, which he hopes will one day take him to the Olympics. Now a Utah resident (to continue training at a high level) and in the midst of his second year competing at the sport’s highest Senior Elite level, Ruben also finished second in the double mini competition at the World Championships in Russia in 2018 — his first world championships at the senior elite level — and recently won the double mini trampoline competition at the USA Gymnastics Championships in Iowa, in addition to finishing fourth in the synchronized trampoline competition and seventh place (second in preliminaries) in the trampoline event. But he’s not letting his success go to his head. “I try not to be too confident or anything,” Ruben said. “I just take it as it comes.” Ruben’s Olympic hopes hinge on his continued development and success. He’s currently training around two hours a day and 17 hours a week under coach Sven Nielsen. Ruben’s next opportunities to rise in the sport will be another trampoline competition at the World Cup in Russia in September and a trip to Spain in October for the Trampoline and Double Mini World Cups.

Oakley woman finds success on the track by Patrick Gordon Correspondent
Oakley resident Katie Sullivan grew up watching drag racing at the Sonoma Raceway. Earlier this month, she took the track herself at the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Sonoma Nationals and won the first round against one of the world’s best Pro Stock Motorcycle drag racers. In the first round of the Sonoma Nationals, held Sunday, July 28, Sullivan traveled a quarter mile in 6.927 seconds to beat Hector Arana Jr., the first Pro Stock Motorcycle racer to run a 200-mph race and, currently, fourth in the NHRA national championship standings. “Sonoma is my home track,” Sullivan said. “It’s always cool to go to Sonoma, because, as a little kid, I grew up there watching all of my favorite racers.” Although she didn’t win the event, Sullivan’s first-round win was an inspiring one for her and her team. Arana is sponsored by Lucas Oil, one of the largest sponsors in the NHRA series. “We’re small fish in a really big pond of people who have financial backing,” Sullivan explained. She said her team has been an underdog compared to others

with larger sponsors. Sullivan, 28, has been racing for about 10 years. When she began, she was the youngest woman to qualify and race in a national class. “It’s cool now because there are so many girls doing it,” she said. “When I first started, it was a novelty to be a girl. Now, it’s just normal to see all these girls at the racetrack, and I think it’s so rad.”
As a racer, she has grown into a role model for young girls who watch her compete. “One of the things that really stands out to me is the little girls that come to my races,” she said. “I never thought in my life that I would necessarily be an influence to anyone, but you get these little girls that come up to you and tell you that you’re their hero, and there’s no cooler
feeling than that.” Another high point in her career was in June, when she traveled to Ipswich, Australia, for the 52nd Annual Gulf Western Oil Winternationals Drag Race extravaganza. After a sub-par qualifying run of 7.36 seconds, she went on to set an Australian record with a run of 6.969 secsee Track page 18

Bowlers bridge age gap at Harvest Park Bowl The tenth annual Bridging the Gap Junior-Senior Bowling Tournament was held on Aug. 18 at Harvest Park Bowl. Junior bowlers as young as 9 and seniors (50 and up) were paired up for three games of competition. The format was “9 pin no-tap,” which means knocking down nine pins with the first ball (instead of the usual ten) is scored as a strike. There were five bowlers who scored perfect 300 games. This is a popular event, each year attracting new junior bowlers who have recently started bowling and seniors who have recently reached their senior (50-yearold) status. This year, 26 teams made up of 54 bowlers took to the lanes. As usual, there was excitement in the air. The bowlers — junior and senior — rooted for one another, and spectators (parents, grandparents, friends) were there to support their favorites.

The little she did have was spent volunteering at her church, bowling and Photo by Dawnmarie Fehr watching movies with her friends. Future Plans: Tobin graduated from Freedom in June and is currently attending University of California, Davis, working toward a bachelor’s degree in molecular biology. She does not intend to cheer in college. Coach’s Quote: “Peyton Tobin was a key component in our success this past season,” Strelo said. “As a senior, she led her team by setting an example of calm confidence and laser focus. No matter how intense our games became, she was ready to step on the mat and execute a flawless routine.”
Name: Peyton Tobin School: Freedom High School Year: Senior Sport: Competitive Cheer Coach: Laura Strello About: Peyton Tobin has a long list of athletic and academic achievements from her high school career. As part of the Freedom High School competitive sport cheer team, she was a Bay Valley Athletic League and North Coast Section champion in both 2018 and 2019 and won many scholar athlete and team awards. Tobin stumbled into cheer when her parents signed her brother up for football. “(My parents) just asked if I wanted to cheer and I said yeah,” Tobin said. “I was in 6th grade and I liked it. I didn’t really have anything else outside of school then, and I liked the friends and I liked cheering.” Tobin stuck with it and became an integral part of Freedom’s team. She said she made many friends at Freedom and

Freedom (9-4 in 2018), last year’s NCS Division I runner-up, will begin their season on the road against Turlock (8-4 last year), who made it to the quarterfinals in last year’s Sac-Joaquin Section Division I playoffs.

Justice — who races a Harley-Davidson — says they’ve helped each other out, on and off the track. “She helps me, I help her,” Justice said. “Whether we help line each other up on the starting line, wrench on the bikes together, we just try to do whatever we can to get each other going on the track and help each other be better riders.” Sullivan and Justice met on the racetrack and started dating in 2014. Since then, they’ve been a team. Justice says their free time is spent working on bikes in

It’s a full-on lifestyle.” Sullivan’s ultimate goal is to win an NHRA event. “My dream as a little girl was to win championships and stuff like that,” she said. “As I got older and learned the reality of it, my goal really became to win a race. I hope there’s more in store than that, but it would be really hard for me to retire if I don’t achieve that.” Sullivan’s next race will be the Dodge NHRA Nationals, presented by Pennzoil, Oct. 31 to Nov. 3, at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. After that, she’ll participate in the Auto Club NHRA Finals in Pomona, California, Nov. 14 to17. For more information, visit www.kaliforniakatie.com.

This business is conducted by: An Individual. The registrant commenced to transact business under the fictitious business name or names listed above on N/A. Signature of registrant: Carlos Chamberlain. This statement was filed with the County Clerk of Contra Costa County on: August 16, 2019 by Deputy L.

incorrectness of the street address or other common designation, if any, shown above. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by the Deed of Trust with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, under the terms of said Deed of Trust, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $ 422,593.47. Note: Because the Beneficiary reserves the right to bid less than the total debt owed, it is possible that at the time of the sale the opening bid may be less than the total debt. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. The beneficiary of the Deed of Trust has executed and delivered to the undersigned a written request to commence foreclosure, and the undersigned caused a Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located NOTICE OF TRUSTEE’S SALE NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on this property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (866)-960-8299 or visit this Internet Web site http://www.altisource.com/ MortgageServices/DefaultManagement/ TrusteeServices.aspx using the file number assigned to this case 2017-01334CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 916-939-0772 or visit this Internet Web site www.nationwideposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 02019-092.

BOX 6875 SANTA ROSA, CA 95406-0875 By: ROBERT CULLEN, President NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 730-2727 or visit this Internet Web site: www.servicelinkASAP.com, using the Trustee Sale number assigned to this file, T.S. #19075-PR. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

BART General Manager Bob Powers. “The grant money allows us to sustain the deployment of our Critical Asset Patrol (CAP) team for an additional year, while we continue to hire new officers to fill the 19 added positions prioritized in this year’s budget.” BART’s CAP team consists of seven officers and one sergeant who are assigned full time to high visibility patrol on trains, platforms and in stations primarily within the core San Francisco underground BART stations. Their presence acts as a deterrent to criminal and potential terrorist activity and the detection of suspicious activity. Year to date, the CAP team has been responsible for
55 arrests, including cellphone theft suspects, active warrants, stay away order violations, probation violations, public intoxication and drug use and other criminal activity. The team helps keep BART safe and plays an essential safety role during major events when BART carries large crowds. They also work in conjunction with BART’s K9 units and other efforts, such as emergency staffing and overtime details to boost officer presence during all hours including weekends and holidays. Each CAP team member is trained as a terrorism liaison officer and collaborates with other law enforcement agencies. Since January, they have run over 25 high-visibility
joint operations with the Transportation Security Administration’s VIPR (Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response) team. BART launched the CAP team in 2011. Congressman Eric Swalwell led the effort to help secure these funds for BART with support from Bay Area members of Congress including Representatives Barbara Lee, Ro Khanna, Zoe Lofgren, Mark DeSaulnier, Jackie Speier and Anna Eshoo. BART Police continues to make progress in hiring more officers to increase police presence across the system. The BART Police Department has now hired 37 officers this year, compared to 24 officers hired in all of 2018.
although any potential endorsement language needed to be finalized this week to appear in official ballot language. Bob Nunn, a member of the development group, said the board meeting was an important step in the right direction. “We look forward to continuing our ongoing discussions with the fire district,” Nunn said. “We are committed to being a part of the solution. We all know that the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District is critically underfunded and that their budget deficit is one of the most pressing issues in East County.” Helmick said after the meeting that the board’s decision to continue discussions is part of the process to address the district’s long-term system issues. “I don’t see this as a setback or a step forward,” he said. “I think it’s a necessary
step for everyone to be educated about the district’s current service level challenges and also the challenges that come from growth. It is very important that we manage growth effectively because, growth without the appropriate mitigation measures will make our bad situation even worse.” Board members Joe Young and Langro both indicated the possible 2,400-home development — slated to be built out over 20 years, if approved — will need upwards of one fully-staffed station to be mitigated, an assessment echoed in district documents. District officials’ estimate building, equipping and staffing a station would cost between $10 million and $11 million, with ongoing operations costing about $4 million yearly. As proposed, the development could generate $2 million to $2.5 million per
year in district property taxes, according to district documents. The developer would also likely be required to pay the city of Brentwood fire facility impact fees to account for development impacts, which could be used to help pay for capital needs, such as new fire stations and engines, according to district documents. “It’s a large impact and it needs to be mitigated, and I believe we can get there,” Young said. “GBN has a long history here. Many of us live in developments they have created, including myself. I think it’s possible to get there, but I don’t believe this MOU addresses that adequately.” Once the district subcommittee formalizes a recommendation on the MOU and endorsement question, it’s expected the full board would mull over both issues again.
ting good results,” Doser said. “All the results, except for near the discharge point of Kellogg Creek, came back within safe limits ... In the vicinity of the Kellogg Creek discharge point, South Newport Drive, a ‘Caution Level’ warning is recommended.” The algae usually bloom in shallow, stagnant, nutrient-rich water after consecutive days of high temperatures. While these conditions usually come to a head during August, fast-moving water isn’t affected. Residents may notice the trademark green, white or brown foam, or “scum” that indicates algae blooms float-
ing in the waters near and under their docks as the summer progresses. In still, warm water with plenty of nutrients, the scum can float on top of or lay suspended in the water. Pets are especially susceptible to these toxins because they are more likely to ingest water while swimming. Pay attention to signage posted around the bays to know if it is safe to swim. Water safety and quality don’t fall under the Town of Discovery Bay’s jurisdiction. In a previous interview with The Press, general manager Mike Davies said he and his staff will fully cooperate with
the county in an effort to keep residents safe and informed. “Although the town of Discovery Bay is not responsible for water quality in the Delta, we do provide information and referral resources on our website when we receive updates on blue-green algae conditions in our area,” Davies said.

LIFE ON THE
WATER’S EDGE OPENING SUMMER 2019
WHERE THE DELTA TAKES YOU
“Even with its close
proximity to the Bay Area, the Delta feels a million miles away from it all.
A new boating life is luring water-lovers to the great California waterway. Delta Coves,
set on a private lagoon and marina on Bethel lsland, is a new club community that will be home to 500 waterfront residences, each with their own private boat dock and just
minutes from 1,000 miles of fastwater fun.
Delta Coves residents enjoy the best of both worlds: the close-knit, water-centric
community of Bethel Island and close proximity to the San Francisco Bay. The hub of daily life at Delta Coves is the Island Camp Club, a private social and recreational facility with
a swimming pool, fitness center and spa, family games and more. It’s the place to go for a morning workout or an afternoon swim with the kids, and to gather with friends and family for happy hour, a fish fry and a game of bocce ball at day’s end. Explore the water’s edge and beyond.
