Aaron on the mend

Mix and mingle at Brentwood City Update

Donor event set for Saturday by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer With the community of East County and beyond watching and praying for the success of fiveyear-old Aaron Tanner’s heart and kidney transplant, life for the Brentwood family has begun to settle down. Aaron continues to improve from his rare and risky double-transplant surgery two weeks ago, and may be discharged from UCLA Medical Center as soon as this weekend. Once released, Aaron and his mother Elizabeth will reside near the hospital for the next three months as doctors continue to monitor his progress. “Aaron is doing so well,” Elizabeth said in an e-mail to The Press this week. “He took a short walk (Sunday), just a tiny one from his bed to the wheelchair and down the hallway. He’s doing great.” Aaron’s father, Mark, and brothers, Nicholas and Noah, returned to Brentwood this week, and the boys have started back to school. “Mark will be driving down with the boys on the weekends and they’ll have our family and the boy’s school and church there to help them,” said Elizabeth. “Our community has been so supportive. We are blessed to not have had to go through this alone.” Some of those supporters will be participating in the Golden Gate Bridge Donate Life Walk

Five-year-old Aaron Tanner, the Brentwood boy who underwent a heart and kidney transplant earlier this month, continues to improve and is expected to be released from UCLA Medical Center within the next few days. this Saturday, Aug. 28. The 3.2 mile walk back and forth across the Golden Gate Bridge is sponsored by Organ-ize The Planet and the California Transplant Donor Network, and is dedicated to Aaron. The walk begins at 11 a.m. For more information on the walk or on organ donation, visit www.organizetheplanet.com.

Interested in learning more about Brentwood? Curious to hear about the city’s plans, programs and budget for the coming year? The Brentwood City Update will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 8 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Brentwood Senior Activity Center, 193 Griffith Lane and is open to the public. The free event, hosted by the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce and Mayor Bob Taylor and sponsored by Travis Credit Union and PG&E, will offer residents an opportunity to mix and mingle with members of the city council, department heads and other local officials. Formerly called the State of the City, this year’s event was changed from the traditional luncheon to

an evening session in an effort to broaden the public’s access to local officials, city information and projects. “This will give people more one-on-one contact with people inside City Hall, not just face time with the mayor,” said Brentwood Chamber CEO Harry York. In addition to informational offerings from the various city departments, the evening will include a 45-minute overview presentation, including details of the city’s downtown streetscape and civic center projects. Light refreshments will be served. Please R.S.V.P. to the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce at 925-634-3344.

Meet your fire chief The public is invited to celebrate the recent appointment of Contra Costa County Fire Protection District Fire Chief Hugh Henderson on Monday, Aug. 30. Henderson, a longtime employee of the district, has been serving as Acting Fire Chief.

The meet-and-greet event will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Brentwood Council Chambers, 101B Sand Creek Road. The badge pinning and administration of the oath of office will take place at 5:15 p.m. and will be followed by dessert and refreshments.

Unemployment rises in East County by Dave Roberts Staff Writer President Obama traveled the country recently on a six-week “Recovery Summer” tour showcasing bright spots in the mostly sluggish economy. He didn’t drop by East County, however. Unfortunately, the recovery has yet to reach this area, where the already high unemployment rate has increased another half-percent in the past year. Antioch’s 13.1 percent unemployment rate has more than doubled in the past 2½ years, according to the California Employment Development Department. A year ago 12.4 percent of Antioch residents were out of work, a percentage that’s been in double digits every month but one (when it was 9.9 percent) since January 2009. But Pittsburg leads in unemployment among East Cities: 18.2 percent. Brentwood’s unemployment rate is 10.4 percent, up from 9.8 percent unemployment a year ago. Brentwood’s jobless rate has been in double digits every month this year except one (9.7 percent). It peaked at 10.7 percent in March. Oakley, which usually plays second fiddle to Antioch and Brentwood, continues to boast the lowest unemployment rate of East County cities: 8.5 percent. That’s up from 8 percent a year ago, but is down from the high of 8.8 percent in January. When unincorporated towns are con-

Unfortunately, Knightsen has the dubious distinction of having the worst unemployment rate in the county: 23.8 percent. Bethel Island is tied with Bayview for the county’s fourth highest unemployment rate: 21.6 percent. Opportunity Junction, a job-training and placement center in Antioch, has

seen increased demand for its classes as well as longer wait times to place graduates. “We are still seeing people get hired,” said Deputy Director Jesse Golden. “So all is not lost. People are getting jobs. But it’s tougher. And the more skills people can offer an employer, the better off they are. In response to this situation, we have asked people to get customer service and Microsoft certification so they can show they have higher skills than the average of-

fice worker. It’s doable; it’s just tougher.” Opportunity Junction provides three office skills and customer service classes each year for low-income, unemployed people. They take place Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for 12 weeks. Nearly 200 people showed up and 120 people applied for the 20 seats in the last class. About four out of five graduates find a job. “It is taking people longer to find employment,” acknowledges Golden. “Employers’ expectations are higher because they can pick through a bigger pool of applicants, and wages are depressed from what we saw a couple years ago. They can get a higher quality employee at a lower price right now. The aim of our program is to get people on the road to self sufficiency and be able to support themselves on their wages. This (job market) is not what we like to see. But people do what they have to do. They are dogged and keep looking and have to start at lower wages than they would a couple years ago.” Opportunity Junction starts taking applications on Monday, Aug. 30 for its next class, which begins Sept. 27. The application can be downloaded at www. opportunityjunction.org. Application sessions will be held at 3102 Delta Fair Blvd. in Antioch on Aug. 30, Sept. 7 and 13 starting at 10 a.m. For more information see Unemployment page 23A

Message in a bottle – times two by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

We’ve all heard the stories of ancient, barnacle-encrusted bottles washing up on shore and the lucky passerby who stumbles upon the romantic message inside. Brentwood resident Jeff Emanuel knows first hand about serendipitous scrawlings because it happened to him not just once, but twice. “I know, what are the odds?” said Emanuel of his discoveries. “I guess I was just in the right places at the right times.” Emanuel’s first sighting occurred in 1993 while serving with the Air Force in Kuwait during Operation Desert Storm. While walking along the beach one afternoon he stumbled upon an old, worn bottle sticking up out of the sand, containing a letter written in Arabic. It wasn’t until nearly five years later when Emanuel’s tour was over and he had returned home, that he finally learned what the message said. “I was working at the time for Hewlett-Packard and there was an intern working there from Kuwait,” said Emanuel. “So I brought the letter to him and he was able to translate it for me.” The short note turned out to be just a friendly greeting to the recipient of the bottle. “Thank you for reading this letter and please contact me to know the place

and time of finding this,” it read in part. Unfortunately, there was no number or return address. Emanuel’s second discovery in 2006 was a little more detailed. “I was scuba diving with my daughter just north of Bodega Bay and there was this thick, thick carpet of jellyfish and it was hard to see and get through the water,” he said. “At one point my foot brushed against something and I took a closer look and found the bottle.” The note, tucked in a milky green wine bottle, was written in Chinese. When Emanuel returned home, he had the message translated. “It was from an instructor at a driving school to his long lost love,” said Emanuel. “The letter said how much he misses her and loves her and hopes to see her again some day. It was a romantic letter, even though it was pretty clear he knew he wouldn’t see her again.” Messages in bottles have long been the subject of songs, novels and romantic inspiration. While neither of Emanuel’s letters ended in an epic tale of love reunited or discoveries of a buried treasure, he’s perfectly content with the outcomes. “It’s just a fun thing to find no matter what the message,” he said. “I saw in the news recently where someone was cleaning up the oil spill in the Gulf and found a letter in a bottle from a woman in England. They’re everywhere.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

NEW CALIFORNIA LAW

Photo courtesy of Carol Jensen

Thanks to the help from some Brentwood Press readers, we now know that Nelda Lewis Gibson sent this photo postcard to her cousin in 1908.

Naming Nellie by Samie Hartley Staff Writer The Byron School History Mystery has been solved. The schoolgirl, known only as Nellie until The Press ran her 1908 postcard message two weeks ago, has been identified as Nelda Lewis Gibson, thanks to Norma Lewis of Brentwood and Petra Lewis of Stockton. “Unfortunately, the images of the children are too small to specifically identify Nellie in the picture at this time,” said historian and postcard owner Carol Jensen. “A magnifying glass and a ‘blow up’ of the image may assist in comparing known images of Nellie to the Byron School photograph.” On the back of the postcard, which featured 45 students, Nellie wrote “I got promoted in the second grade. I have a baby brother.” Jensen purchased the card on eBay and asked for Press readers’ help to uncover Nellie’s full name and any details about the girl who sent her postcard to Loyd Peterman of Willows, Calif. on June 1, 1908.

After spotting the picture in The Press, Norma sent it to her sister-in law Petra, who suspected Nellie was referring to her husband Walter, who was born on May 24, 1908. Petra then called her daughter Nancy Slatten to tell her that the postcard was from her aunt Nellie, a fair-skinned, strawberry blonde from Byron. Slatten then e-mailed Jensen to inform her that the History Mystery had been solved. “Traditional snail mail and new internet technology communication resulted in a solution all within three days of the Brentwood Press’ publication. Small, well connected world,” Jensen mused. Jensen said the family believes Loyd Peterman was Nellie’s cousin. Petra Lewis has been awarded a membership to the East Contra Costa Historical Society for solving the mystery. Stay tuned for the next History Mystery in an upcoming issue of The Press. If you have more information about the postcard, e-mail Jensen at historian@ byronhotsprings.com.

A new law was just passed that will affect nearly every California homeowner. Senate Bill 183 requires carbon monoxide detectors be placed in all California dwelling units. They have set a deadline of July 1, 2011 for singlefamily homes, and January 1, 2013 for all other dwelling units (multi-family, apartments, motels, etc.). And of course we can’t have a new law without a new disclosure, of course. So starting January 1, 2011, the California standard disclosure forms will ask if the home is in compliance with this new law. Personally I am a fan of carbon monoxide detectors. I’ve had one in my house for at least 10 years. I think it is a wise precaution to have. According to the American Medical Association, carbon monoxide poisoning is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in the United States. The California Air Resources Board has determined that 30 – 40 “avoidable deaths,” on average, occur in California each year due to unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning. Additionally, this is the cause of 175 – 700 “avoidable” emergency

room visits and hospitalizations in the state. This is different from some of the other laws that have been passed in the past that make the retrofit a “point of sale” ordinance. For example, there is a requirement for gas shut-off valves for homes in the unincorporated areas of Contra Costa County, but that requirement only kicks in when the home is sold. This new law applies to EVERY home in California. (Well, at least those homes that have “a fossil fuel burning heater or appliance, fireplace, or an attached garage”. “Fossil fuel” means “coal, kerosene, oil, wood, fuel gases, and other petroleum or hydrocarbon products, which emit carbon monoxide as a byproduct of combustion.”) So if you don’t already have a carbon monoxide detector in your home, grab one next time you are shopping and install it. It’s a smart thing to do, and soon, it will be the law. If you have questions on this or any other real estate topic, call me at (925) 240-MOVE (6683).

Idol time in San Francisco by Tim Rios

Correspondent For almost 10 years now, I have watched American Idol, often getting caught up in the spectacle of judges plucking The Next Big Star from a roaring sea of talent. I have to admit – my favorite shows involve the fledgling weirdos and the amazing final contestants that inevitably float to the top of the heap, but not necessarily in that order. I have always wondered how it all works, thinking, “How do those people wait in line all that time? It must be brutal!” I was finally able to answer my own questions because Idol made an important change this year by modifying the audition age. No, they didn’t raise it so aging goats like me could try to get a “Yo Dog” from Randy Jackson – they lowered the audition age to include 15 year-olds. This is important because my daughter Jewels is 15, beautiful and a budding songstress. She’s a modest one, this kid, and I know I’m biased but I really do think my daughter is an amazing talent. So what did we have to lose? Precious sleep, that’s what. We trekked out to San Francisco about 5:30 a.m. on Aug. 18, the second day of registration, coolers stuffed with sandwiches, fruit, chips, sodas and water. Our van was stuffed with pillows, blankets and suitcases in the event we’d have to sleep there. We’d scoured the Idol website and read the rules but we still didn’t feel prepared. Do we bring camping gear? The rules say you can’t! Will there be enough audition spots? The rules say even if you register (which gets you a spot), you still aren’t guaranteed! We arrived at AT&T Park at 7 a.m. By 7:05 a.m. we were done. “Come back tomorrow at 5 a.m.,” the Idol worker told us. Jewels and I looked at each other and thought the same

thing, “What the heck are we going to do until 5 a.m. tomorrow?” We lunched at Coit Tower, negotiated Lombard Street’s crooked curves, and drove to Fisherman’s Wharf. I pulled out a djembe drum and we sat on a bench and sang to tourists, who clearly and unapologetically avoided us. I put a hat out just to see what would happen, even seeding it with $1.50 in change to encourage people that we were good enough to throw their spare change at. But we had no such luck. We may have been playing and singing our hearts out but no one dropped a single red cent into our charity cap. But we were having fun so it didn’t matter. Some homeless guys came up and started grooving to Jewels’s soulful rendition of “Natural Woman,” one of them saying (or slurring), “You’re gonna make me cry. I love that song.” They sat down next to us, got real quiet, and told Jewels that she had an amazing gift and that she could do anything she wanted in life – sage advice from an urban camper who smelled of Jim Beam at 7:30 a.m. We finally found ourselves on our way home around noon. If we had to be back at AT&T Park at 5 a.m., we would need a good night’s sleep. But sleep did not come easily. Jewels was fighting a cold and anticipation ran through our tired minds. We snoozed for a few hours and hit the road at 3:30 a.m. This time, on audition day, there was an endless mass of people snaking their way through the stadium parking lot. We sat in this line for almost four hours. It wasn’t hard to spot the weirdos. There was the mom and daughter dressed as clowns, an old silver-painted lady, and our personal favorite: a kid Photo by Tim Rios dressed as an old granny on roller skates. We were herded into the park and watched as the entire Liberty High School sophomore Jewels Rios, 15, shows off her American Idol audition ticket at AT&T Park in San Francisco on Aug. 19. see Idol page 22A

Parents pony up for school library by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Discovery Bay Elementary Principal Allan Petersdorf knows that a school library is more than a place to check out books and conduct online research – it’s also an important part of a school’s campus culture. But this year, thanks to ongoing state budget cuts, the library is struggling to keep its doors open during the lunchtime hour and may have to close three days a week. That’s an option that Petersdorf says is no option at all. “Not everyone likes to play outside during lunch, and the library is a place for students to use computers, to read or draw or to just quietly gather,” said Petersdorf. “I’m not willing to back up from things that we need, and I think this is something that is important.” In the past, funding for the extra library hours were paid for by the school district and, if necessary, supplemented through site council funds or PTA donations. Those dollars,

Car wash features Warrior Girls

however, are now needed to keep key employees, and the funds are not as readily available. But Petersdorf has a plan. “I’m asking for donations,” he said. “This is the first time I’ve ever done this and I’m only asking for the month of August, but I’m hoping that a modest donation of $10, or less, will help offset our costs of keeping the library open an additional three days a week during lunchtime.” Currently, the library is kept open two days a week during lunchtime with funds from last year’s school book fair. Petersdorf is hoping to raise $1,500 in parent donations to keep it open five days a week and allow the school to use the book fair revenue to buy books and

supplies for the library. So far, the strategy is working. “We have 280 families at our school and so far we have collected about 50 donations (about $800), so it’s going well; we’re over halfway there and I’m really happy with that,” said Petersdorf. “But it’s really about more than raising money. It’s about parents feeling like they are supporting something that they can actually see. I know that for some families the $10 is a big amount of money and for others it is nothing at all. But I felt that the amount was a reasonable, modest amount that people could contribute – less if they wanted – and still feel a part of the process.”

A car wash featuring the Warrior Girls cheerleaders will raise funds for the Brentwood-based International Orphan Relief Foundation’s (IORF) third annual effort to provide food baskets and children’s pajamas for the holidays in East County. The fundraiser will be held this Saturday, August 28 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot of Schooner’s Grille & Brewery at 4250 Lone Tree Way in Antioch. Fees for car washes will be by donation only. Last year the IORF served almost 200 families in East County with both food baskets and children’s pajamas but had to turn away some families. They’re asking for help this year to meet the needs of 250 families. For more information about the IORF, please call 925-418-4109 or visit www.IORF. org.

Honored at Excelsior Discovery Bay student Demi Neal recently received a $500 grant from the Bay Area chapter of the Barnum Awards for her work with the Gay Straight Alliance club at Excelsior Middle School in Byron. The award, sponsored by Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey, honors young people nationwide who honor the spirit of P.T. Barnum and his contributions to society. The Barnum Award is designed to reward children ages six to 14, who have created social good and community through their own inventive and pioneering actions. Demi is the founder and first president of the Gay Straight Alliance club at Excelsior that works to eliminate bullying and harassment at school and create a safer and more inclusive atmosphere for all students.

Petersdorf’s campaign officially runs through the end of August. “I don’t want to keep asking people for money all year,” he said. Donations will still be accepted afterward, and any surplus will be put aside into a fund for safekeeping. “Any extra donations that we get I will hold onto for items that we might need down the road,” said Petersdorf. “I just want to say that if it wasn’t for our supportive PTA and staff we wouldn’t be doing half of what we have been able to do here (on campus). It’s an amazing community.” To make a donation to the library fund, call 925-809-7540.

This fall the Liberty High School Playmakers present The Learned Ladies (Les Femmes Savantes) by the playwright Moliere (Jean-Baptiste Poquelin) and directed by Playmakers advisor Helen Dixon. The Learned Ladies is a farcical comedy that will be set in Paris in the 1950s rather than the original time period of 1672. The story centers around Henrietta (Kristy Reno) and Clitandre (Sam Figueroa) who are

very much in love, but there is a catch: Although her father, Chrysale (Robert Jewell) favors the match, Henriette’s mother, Philaminte (Brooke Damico) wishes for Henrietta to marry Trissotin (Monte George), a foppish poet who is only after a large dowry. This satire of academic pretensions, female education, and the discipline of erudite mannerisms will have audiences rolling in the aisles, rooting for true love. Performances of The Learned Ladies will be Sept. 3, 4, 9 and 10 at 7 p.m. and Sept. 11 at 2 p.m. at the

Allan E. Jones Performing Arts Center on the Liberty campus. Tickets are available online and at the door. Admission for the public is $9.50; Seniors (60 years and up), youth (up to high school age) and college students with ID are $7.50; Playmakers members are $5.50. On Thursday, Sept. 9 all tickets are $5.50. For tickets, go to http://libertyunion.schoolwires.net/playmakers or contact Playmakers at lhsplaymakers@hotmail.com. The phone number is 325-2876, ext. 5489. – Contributed by Anne Querida

Oakley couple a perfect match by Austin Miles Correspondent One of the first individuals to be encountered when coming to Trinity Christian School in Oakley is School Administration Assistant Dee Halog. Nearby, one might notice a young man doing various duties. Sean Halog stands out even though his is a quiet presence. Whoever sees them at their work have no idea of the phenomenon of their lives underneath the surface. Sean and Dee have demonstrated a deep, devoted unconditional love and sacrifice that has touched everyone involved in Mountain View Christian Center and Trinity Christian School. Theirs is the ultimate love story. Sean had reached a point in time where he longed to turn his life around so he began attending Mountain View Christian Center (MVCC). Dee worked at MVCC and couldn’t help but notice him when he began coming. He noticed her too. Indeed, the first glance unveiled the deepest of feelings that startled them both. It was instant. They really didn’t know what to do with those feelings, but did become good friends and managed to talk every day and texted each other so much that their thumbs developed calluses. This went on for two years until Dee finally told her sister Lorie, who also works at MVCC, that her feelings were growing for Sean. Then, a crisis. Sean’s health began to fail. He had begun working with the youth of the church and Dee would go to help him with that ministry which drew them closer and lifted the veil between them. They both felt that the other was who they were created for. They had a coffee date at Starbucks and discussed Sean’s worsening health challenges. Not only did Sean have diabetes and heart problems, but he also desperately needed a kidney transplant or he would die. One kidney was shot and the other one operated at only 8 percent. He had dialysis four times a week, each session lasting

three-and-a-half hours. Meanwhile, Sean had been accepted in the minister’s intern class and, as ill as he was, attended faithfully. He was on the list for a transplant for about seven years. His blood made him a difficult match; His future did not look bright. Still, the miraculous power of love took center stage. Sean proposed to Dee who, fully knowing he was very ill, said “yes.” On July 17, 2009 at the magnificent Hanoum Estate in Oakley, Sean and Dee were married by Pastor Tyrone Holmes of MVCC. The church staff provided their honeymoon stay in Monterey. Because a donor for Sean had still not been found Dee decided to have herself tested. To the astonishment of everyone, Dee was a (another) perfect match. On June 17, 2010, Sean and Dee were lying in beds next to each other at UCSF Medical Center. As the anesthesiologist began his work, they looked over at each other and with a smile whispered, “I love you.” Then the surgeons took their places as they dozed off. In the Trinity Christian School library at MVCC, the teachers had gathered for an orientation meeting regarding the upcoming new semester. One of the teachers kept her phone in front of her, checking update texts from a friend at the hospital; “They’re in surgery;” then later, “They have successfully removed Dee’s kidney.” The teachers cheered and praised God as each new text came in. “They have just put her kidney in Sean.” Then the best of all, “They are closing them up.” Finally came the word everyone longed to hear: “The transplant is a success! Everything is working!” which provoked another cheer from the library. When they were introduced at the next church service, there were more cheers and tears. They both looked wonderful, and Sean looked better than anyone had ever seen him. When asked how he’s doing, Dee proudly said, “Great ... he’s peeing all the time!” Sean would never again have to rely on

With a part of Dee inside Sean, they have truly become one flesh. They have and continue to set a very positive example of the power of love, commitment, devotion, sacrifice and trust. God’s plans and timing are always perfect. He has everything under control, even those things that make little sense at the moment. And through it all, Dee and Sean have given all of us a perfect example of what unconditional love is all about. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Let’s hear it for the coaches Editor: For the past nine years my four boys have enjoyed many of the sports leagues available in Brentwood. I am continually impressed with all of the parents that volunteer their free time to coach and lead these teams. This is why I am surprised every time I hear about parents that harass the coaches. It’s time to put up or shut up! If you think you can do a better job, then sign up and do it. If not, then smile, shake your coach’s hand, and show some gratitude for their service. Tara Heston Brentwood

Demagoguery alert Editor: The August 13 letter titled “Are You Ready For Real Change?” begs for a response. It is simply a regurgitation – nearly verbatim – of the conservative Heritage Foundation talking points. If you’re a Rush Limbaugh/Sean Hannity follower, you will be familiar with what the Stokes family are espousing. I consider myself a skeptic and I do my homework before basing my opinion on one source. The “average tax hike of $1,761” per household has been debunked by none other than the Wall Street Journal (hardly a liberal rag). According to their study, in conjunction with the Tax Foundation, the repeal of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy in conjunction with the current administration’s plan, will result in lower taxes for every household up to a dual income family of four earning $300K per year. That family would pay an additional $3,900. Everyone below that income level will pay fewer taxes. Now, on the subject of Cap and Trade. The EIA (research arm of the Dept. of Energy) states that average utility bills will increase 3 percent to 4 percent by 2020. Utilities will increase

Time for new representation

Editor: What a shame that the city officials, from top to bottom, made a mess of the city park by building their “horse barn” there. This park was for the people to enjoy. The CornFest will never be the same. Before the horse barn was built, there were vendors on both sides of Second Street. People enjoyed walking down the street and buying. The holiday parade will also be affected.

ward Winning News al A pa

EDITOR

I’d like to recommend that these officials resign and take their horse barn to their own back yards. Brentwood has many residents that are competent. The above are not. They should be replaced with competent residents. Nick Papadakos Byron

Raise the bucks, don’t pass them Editor: I laughed when I read about the seaweeds dumped at CSD doorstep. Virgil Koehne said that he wants to embarrass the guys who dumped it by letting the public know who they are. I think the public will be patting the dumpers on the back. I am curious about the “talks with the state.” What is the state saying? Does the Department of Boating and Waterways say it’s not in the budget? If it’s money, I’ll bet residents are ready to contribute money to clean up this mess. I’m sure it will be less money than repairs to our boats. Instead of passing the buck to the state, how about we start taking some action! Michele White Discovery Bay

Amazing contributions Editor: This letter is written in response to Jannine Nelson’s letter in last weeks Brentwood Press. Nelson attempted to discredit Carol Jackson and Walter MacVittie. I have had the pleasure of working with both these individuals on regional boards and committees. The time, skills, efforts and work ethics donated by both of them to our community are amazing. I can honestly say that, in my opinion, the Byron Sanitary District would not be here today if it had not been for Carol Jackson’s efforts. The court contract dispute Nelson attempted to slander her with found the Sanitary District in total error. As for Walter MacVittie, I have experienced his abilities on many boards and committees over the past 10 years and found him to be dedicated to and always have the best interest of Discovery Bay and East Contra Costa at heart. I am ever amazed at someone like Nelson who is so quick to lash out at two people who have given so much of their personal time and energy to make our community a better place to live.

Tier shaving your home’s power bill Tier Shaving is a great way to get the most from your money when making your solar electric purchase. Solar investors who tier shave benefit from lower up-front costs, an excellent return on investment, and often break even on their investment in as little as three years. To understand tier shaving, you must be familiar with how you’re currently billed for your electric use. By California law, PG&E charges you increasingly more per kilowatt hour (kWh) as you use more electricity. (A kWh is the equivalent of 1,000 watts for one hour, equivalent to five 100-watt light bulbs burning for two hours.) According to the rate chart in Chart 1 above, PG&E divides your monthly electric use into four tiers, based on increasing levels of usage. If you surpass the allotted kWh amount in each tier level, you’ll be charged the next higher rate for each unit of additional usage.

You’re charged only 12 cents per kWh for an initial bare minimum survival amount of electricity. But use just more than twice that much and you’re charged nearly four times more, and your rate shoots up to 40 cents per kWh. By installing a system engineered to shave off the higher, most expensive tiers, you’ll get the fastest return on investment, maximize your savings and pay less up front. The dramatic effect of tier pricing is shown in Chart 2. The blue and green columns combined show the total amount of average monthly kWh of one user over a year. The blue portion represents the amount of electricity provided by a solar system designed for tier shaving. The green portion represents the portion of electricity that still needs to be purchased from PG&E over the year. A significant amount green area is left to see Tier shaving page 24A

Idol from page 8A bottom portion of the stadium filled with Idol hopefuls. Finding our assigned seats, we realized with horror that it was a case of first to line up at registration, first to audition. Our eyes glazed over at the 10 or so sections ahead of us. But we had fun. We met people, heard some amazing singers but heard many more terrible ones. We shivered in the morning cold, then baked in the afternoon sun. We watched former Idol contestant Bo Bice sing, producer Nigel Lythgoe walk about, and host Ryan Seacrest interview various contestants. This went on for eight hours. The auditions began at 9 a.m.; Jewels started hers at 5:15 p.m. Jewels belted out her best, singing “Chasing Pavements” by Adele. I watched from a distance, praying in my head for her to do well.

Then, a few moments later, she walked out the back of the tent, head down, one arm raised to her eyes. I could have felt her disappointment stab me in the heart from a mile away. She cried. We hugged. I tried not to smother. We talked a little on the way home about what we had learned, what we could do better, what we could do differently next year. Then she fell asleep, exhausted and sick, from two days of anticipation. I’m proud of her. It’s not easy exposing your talents for someone to judge like that but she did it with grace. I don’t know the venue but I do believe she is going to have a very promising singing career. Along the way, she’ll experience many exciting things but I know she’s always going to remember those two crazy days where she gave her all and became my American Idol.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Growing with Your FICO Following up on last week’s article I wish to once again – and again, and again for however long as it takes – touch on the importance of an individual’s FICO score. In this day and age of residential lending I truly cannot express enough how important this number is: it directly effects your ability to acquire, or refinance, a home loan. Starting as early as one’s teenage years everyone should begin thinking about how to RESPONSIBLY establish credit. As in not turning 18, racking up the credit cards, and then not paying them off. How many times have you heard friends, family, or even yourself state, “I got into some debt when I was a kid but I’ve learned my lesson and I’m re-building my credit.” It’s nothing to be ashamed of, heck, it was such a huge problem that last year congress passed into law the credit card reform bill. The bill itself took effect on February 22nd of this year and disallows credit cards to be issued to anyone under the age of 21 years old. Moving right along, by our mid to late twenties we’ve hopefully learned our lessons, taken our licks, and turned the corner into responsible adulthood with our credit. Instead of stating we’ve done wrong we’re now asking, “How do we do it right?” Credit is a fickle beast that no one quite knows how to tame, but for starters, we can all agree that too much of anything is never a good thing. Applying that to credit try to keep

your balances under 50% of your credit limit. Creditors like to see that you can “responsibly control” your debt by keeping balances in the 30-50% range. However, they don’t necessarily like to see cards paid off each month – how can they establish a payment history if you don’t keep a balance to pay on…or at least that’s their thought process. In your 30s your own thought process should be much different. You’re now older, wiser (hopefully), and possibly have a family of your own. At this stage in life’s game it is important to remember what you’ve learned about RESPONSIBLE borrowing and pass it down to your own children. Not that they’ll listen right away – somehow the older I get the wiser my parents become – but you have to try. According to a recent study from the National Foundation for Credit Counseling, 41% of those polled stated they learned the most about their personal finances from their parents. Bottom line, as you progress through life so should your FICO score. They say happy loan happy home, but I say happy FICO happy home loan. Okay, that doesn’t rhyme…but really, what rhymes with FICO!?! 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. – Advertisement

Road work promises smooth driving – eventually by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

If you’ve traveled around Discovery Bay lately, you’ve probably noticed some construction along area roads, and you’ve most likely experienced some delays. The good news, however, is that over the next few weeks the bumpy, gravelly drive will make way for a sleeker, smoother ride. It’s called the Discovery Bay Cape Seal project and consists of two phases of surface treatments applied to roads throughout town that were identified by the county last year for resurfacing. Maintenance crews have been preparing the roads for the $1.5 million county-backed project over the past few weeks by sealing cracks and removing brush and vegetation from the edges of the roadways. The crack sealing protects the roads from water damage and extends the life of the pavement. “It’s been going really well so far,” said Virgil Koehne, Discovery Bay’s water and wastewater manager. “When this first phase began I thought there would be a lot of rocks flying and a general mess. But it hasn’t been that way at all. No one seems to be complaining.” But according to Kevin Emigh, assistant county public works director, the second and final phase of the project, called the slurry seal, will take a little longer and require a bit more patience. “The slurry seal is a whole different animal than the crack seal (the first phase),” said Emigh. “The biggest difference is that with the crack seal you can drive on it immediately. But the slurry seal has to dry, and depending upon the weather it can take as long as four hours.” The slurry seal project is expected to

The second and final phase of the road rejuvenation work will take place in a week or two when crews apply the final coating of slurry seal. begin Sept. 7 and will last approximately two weeks. And because the slurry seal may be problematic in terms of driving time, the county is doing all it can to notify residents ahead of the schedule to let them know where the projects will start and stop. Parking restrictions and temporary street closures will be in effect during times that the operations are scheduled for particular streets, and signs will be posted at least 24 hours in advance of a street closure to al-

low for alternate parking. Vehicles in the way of construction during the hours of operation will be towed to the nearest street not under construction. Still, said Emigh, the biggest thing residents can do during the sealing process, is to be prepared and, if possible, make alternative driving plans. “The slurry seal just takes awhile to dry and if you drive over it immediately, you are going to track oil and stuff all over

your car and driveway,” said Emigh. “So we are urging residents to please, please, please make plans to park their cars somewhere if they can and be patient.” For additional information, or to view the project schedule, go online at http://ca-contracostacounty.civicplus. com/DocumentView.aspx?DID=4784, or call the Discovery Bay town offices at 925-634-1441.

It’s really the opportunity of a lifetime.” The Discovery Bay resident said she’ll miss her friends and family. But she plans to keep in touch via Facebook, Skype and her blog, which will share the details of her new job. Hannah has decided to keep an open mind about the experience since she never dreamed of being involved in politics.

She’s always wanted to go to college to study engineering and go on to own her own architectural firm someday. But she also wanted to study abroad; so when her mom told her about the program, she had to give it a shot. After being selected from a pool of hundreds of applicants, Hannah has decided that this new turn of events will make her more open to possibilities, so her once structured road map for the future is now a blank canvas.

“This has turned my life upside down,” she said. “But I hope to be inspired by the experience. I hope that I don’t come back hating the political process and feeling like I wasted a semester, but I like to dream big, so I’m all for having my name on the ballot for president in 2040. You have to go big or go home.” As for her running mate 30 years from now? “I’m keeping my options open,” she said with a smile. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Falcons looking to rebound this season by Michael Dixon Correspondent

It might seem overly optimistic for a football team that went 1-9 last season to be excited about this season. But for the Freedom football team, which showed improvement toward the end of last year, the excitement is legitimate. The Falcons’ most notable accomplishment was winning the Bell Game for the fourth year in a row against Liberty, a 35-6 thumping. Also notable was a loss to league champion Deer Valley, in which a missed fourth quarter field goal would have drawn Freedom to within eight points with plenty of time on the clock. In a loss to NCS runner-up Pittsburg, Freedom led at the end of the first quarter and the teams were still tied at halftime. Freedom head Coach Kevin Hartwig has no problem identifying what separates the 2010 Falcons from the 2009 squad: “Just experience. Last year we had a lot of young people; we only had three seniors who actually played; and we had a small senior class. Experience is a key in our game; it takes a year to figure it out. And at the end of the year in the last four games, we were competitive; we just made little mistakes.” Hartwig also noted similarities between this year’s squad and Freedom’s 101 2008 team: “I think just on the experience level, coming back. When they were

Freedom football Coach Kevin Hartwig is looking forward to a much-improved team this season. juniors three years ago, we had a really young group. And I think that now we can do some good things. We have a long way to go, but I think we’re on the right path. One thing with us is that we’ve had a good run, and it’s just a cycle. We have a few more athletes this year. “We’re doing a lot of good things. We’ve got a good returning core from last year. We’ve cleaned up a lot of the little

things and we’re getting better every day, which is a key.” As for who the coach is looking to for leadership, “We’ve got a lot of kids. We’re returning 17 starters, so there is our leadership, right there. They’ve been there, done that and they don’t want to do what they did last year.” But at perhaps the most important position, quarterback, the Falcons will be starting a sophomore, Dante Mays.

Hartwig is confident he will do well, even though he is going straight from the freshman team to the varsity team. “He got a late start with us last year, so we just kept him at the freshman level; we had a really solid JV guy,” said the coach. “He’s making the transition really well. I think he’s got some experience in it because he played varsity baseball as a freshman, so that helps us out. We went to camp, it was pretty intense, and we’ve had some good practices. He’s still a sophomore but he’s doing a really good job.” Hartwig is also excited about some of the other new blood, including sophomore strong safety Darrell Daniels, junior Jordan Shepherd and running back Adrian Perez, who transferred in late last year. Hartwig likes how his team has progressed on both sides of the ball. “On offense every year you have to tinker or change a little bit, depending on our personnel; so it’s always different year to year,” he said. “But I think what we’re doing right now fits our talent. Defense is much improved. We’ve changed what we’re doing defensively, we have got a great attitude, a lot of kids flying around and we’ll be much improved on defense.” The Falcons will need that improvement as they run the gauntlet that is the BVAL schedule. “You talk to anybody and they’ll tell you, top to bottom it’s going see Falcons page 22B

Locals take on outsiders by Jack Menges Correspondent

It will be “us” against “them” when more than 50 dirt modifieds take to the Antioch Speedway track for the first phase of the West Coast Nationals Saturday night. “Us” will be the top drivers who call the Antioch Speedway their home track, while “them” will come from outside the area to chase the big money. The Nationals will be contested two nights over two tracks. The first part is the race on the Contra Coats County Fairgrounds track Saturday night. Then it’s on to the Merced County Fairgrounds in Merced to compete Sunday night. Each program will be highlighted by a 35-lap main event, the winner of each feature collecting $3,500. If one driver can win at both tracks he’ll bag a $1,000 bonus. The top local drivers shooting for the big purse include former track champions Kenny Neu, Scott Busby, Rob Norris and Bobby Hogge IV. Then there is Kellen Chadwick, who has traveled the country chasing down the big money. Not to be overlooked are current point leader Troy Foulgers, former San Francisco 49er football star Jeremy Newberry, Nick DeCarlo, Jeff Thomas, Norman Beck and Rick Karnes. Newberry showed he could be at equally at home on the race track as he was on the football field when he finished fourth in the main event on the big $20,000 purse program at Antioch two

months ago. That feature race, worth $5,000 to the winner, introduced Stormy Scott to the local fans. Hauling his machine in from New Mexico, Scott took home the $5,000 and currently is fifth in the national dirt car modified point standings. He’s looking forward to the California doubleheader this weekend. Then there are Brea Pounds, a fourthgeneration driver from Los Angeles, who was second to Scott here; four-time 2010 Merced winner Alex Stanford, who battled the top two for the lead before being forced out of the main; and far Northern Californians Duane Cleveland, Randy and Ryan McDaniel. In addition to the main event, qualifying heats and semi-main events will be run at both tracks. Racing starts at 6 p.m. in Antioch; 5 p.m. the next night at Merced. Wingless Sprints Heat Winners: Ryan Bernal and Jim Perry; Main Event – Geoff Bensign, Nick Larson and Scott Dupont. Dwarf Cars Heat Winners: Nick Squatritto, Ricardo Rivera and Tony Carmignani; Main Event – Squatritto, Carmignani and Jerry Doty; Mini Trucks Heat Winner: Danny Wagner; Main Event – Travis Dutra, Gene Haney and Wagner; 360 Winged Sprints Heat Winner: Ryan Rosconi; Main Event – Craig Smith, Jeremy Burt and Mike Monahan. Super Stocks Heat Winners: Mitch Machado and Fred Ryland; Main Event – Larry Damitz, Machado and Mike Gustafson. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Sun rises in Delta Patriots Starts West Delta Patriots Starts West quarterback Dorian Hale ran for a 92-yard touchdown on his first carry as the Delta Patriots Starts West topped the Starts East 28-8. The win improves the Starts West to 2-0 on the young season. It was the first game for the Starts East team. Blake Burke carried the ball into the end zone for the East’s first touchdown of the season during the first half of the game. Caden “Buggy” Lewis caught the two-point conversion. The East boys continued to battle through the game. Starts West moved the ball effectively all day on strong blocking from AJ Hitch, Shane Neal, Jaxton Funk, Hunter McCombs, Jacob Fucci and Trevor McCurry.

Patriots Rookies Delta Patriots Rookies West quarterback and birthday boy Max Lawrence scored two touchdowns to lead his squad to a 20-0 win over the Rookies East. West running back Josh Capps notched the opening touchdown. The of-

The defense delivered a shutout thanks to the hard hitting of Devon Lance, Nicky Einess, Ethan Eggert and Isiah Farnsworth.

West quarterback Ezra Magalei opened the scoring late in the first half on a one-yard dive. The JV East answered immediately with a 65-yard kickoff return for a TD – followed by a 60-yard kickoff return by the JV West’s T.J. Lafayette, which brought the game to 14 to 6 at half. The JV West pounded the ball in the second half off TDs by running backs Riley Condon and Alex Espinoza.

Gonzales scored the East’s second touchdown on a five-yard run late in the first half. The score was set up by a 20-

West receiver Zackary Peterson pulled down a 29-yard pass from quarterback Alex Hull to set up the score. Peterson and Hull hooked up again for a 32-yard pass in the fourth quarter. West cornerback Michael Letak was one of his team’s leaders on defense.

Bowlers bridge the generation gap

Bowlers of all ages participated in a recent tournament at Harvest Park Bowl. Seen here from left are AJ Collins, Bob Damico, Maxwell Herbert, Terry Damico, Sara Kostenuk and Eloise Gatson.

There’s no better way to bring youth and seniors together than involve them in something they both enjoy. That was the idea of Harvest Park Bowl’s Senior League player and Youth Coach Bob Damico and Youth Bowling Director Natalie Paris. Their plan: to form doubles teams comprising one youth (6-20) and one senior (55 and older). And to sweeten the deal: make it a no-tap tournament (in which nine-pin first ball counts as a strike) and contribute the proceeds to

youth scholarship awards. On Aug. 22, 92 bowlers (46 youth and 46 seniors ranging in age from 6 to 93) were paired up into doubles teams for strikes, high fives, fun, fellowship – and scholarship money. Teams of note were Jacob Scocca, 12, and Ed Stewart, 93. The distinction of youngest bowler went to 6-year-old Emily Rose Iles. see Bowlers page 22B

Patriots look to make another splash by Nate Smith Correspondent Coming off a 2009 league championship season, hopes are high for the Heritage Patriots’ boys water polo team. Last season the Patriots recorded a 7-1 mark in league play, going 17-8 overall, before dropping their playoff matchup to a powerful Cal High squad. The Patriots’ top three all-time leading scorers graduated, but 11 of their 16 letterwinners from 2009 are returning, bolstering hopes for a strong 2010 campaign. All-time leading scorers Nick Araujo, Cyrus Blankenship and Clint Freeman are all gone, having moved on to play in college, but coach Derek Perkins is confident the pieces are in place for another successful run. “This year’s team has some big shoes to fill,” said Perkins. “But they have known that all year, and have worked toward filling those

expectations.” Perkins singled out a few returners in particular who look to fill that void. The Patriots return all-league goalie Ty Elder, who is only a junior, along with inside players Travis West and Jackson Bahns, both seniors, to go with perimeter player Kurt Holzmuller, who was first-team all-league last season and is entering his third season with the varsity. “West and Bahns are our inside firepower, while it is very exciting to get back a goalie who was able to earn all-league status as a sophomore,” said Perkins. “Holzmuller provides our team with speed. He was the 100-meter backstroke champion for the league, and he will be countering for us a lot this year.” “I’m pretty excited overall,” added the coach when asked about the upcoming season. “Most of my team has played summer and winter water polo. These guys have put in

a lot of work. They are dedicated to repeating the success of last year.” Perkins said the Patriots’ goals are making it back to the NCS playoffs, placing themselves in position to win the BVAL, moving up in tournament finishes and competing throughout their non-league schedule, which includes some of the top teams in Northern California. According to Perkins, Liberty should be their biggest threat. Perkins is well-acquainted with the Lions’ program, having graduated from Liberty in 2002. In addition, his brother, Leo Colbert, is the Lions’ starting goalie. “A lot of the players in the two programs know each other,” said Perkins, acknowledging the rivalry between the schools. “They have played club water polo together for the past few seasons, so it should be a fun game when we get together.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

DV from page 1B Williams is now attending Washington State on a full-ride scholarship But the Wolverines have plenty of other guns in their arsenal, including quarterback Mike Behr, who played well when Williams went down last year, throwing for more than 400 yards and three touchdowns. “When I came in I did pretty good and helped the team out,” said Behr. “I hope to have a good season this year. I think I can throw pretty well. I can move alright. I think I’ll make smart decisions. Looking forward to the season.” He believes his team has a good shot at repeating as league champs. “We are a pretty close team, good chemistry and we work hard,” he said. “So I think we’ll do good.” Woods believes Behr will be able to fill Williams’ big shoes: “He’s an accurate passer. The thing is we have got to get guys to catch it. In the Pitt 1 game he went in at halftime and threw two touchdown passes to Kristoff. So he just needs some experience, and he’s going to be dynamite. He’s going to fill those shoes, I’m sure.” Woods is also looking for big things from Lamontay Marshall at outside linebacker and fullback. “He is probably one of the best defensive players in the league,” said Woods. “He’s a great player, a hard worker, he’s quick, aggressive.” Marshall said that this year’s team “will be just as good as last season. I think we have a chance to go all the way to the playoffs and the NCS championship. We’re all seniors; so we have been together since freshman year. So we’ve kind of got chemistry. So we can feed off of each other more.” Of course, it takes a lot more than two players to win a championship, and Woods likes what he sees with the rest of this year’s squad. “The difference in this year is that this team is kind of a team that’s reloaded,” he said. “It’s a great group of young men that have come together as a team. They play together. Their work ethic and tempo is very good. I’m impressed with how they practice and how coachable they are. We are just kind of knocking on wood and letting them do what they can do and seeing them progress as we would like them to. “The strength of this team is probably the senior leadership along with the young players who have bonded and come together. They are a good team. They are going to make a good football team. They are going to match talent with work ethic and tempo, and I think it’s going to be their strong suit.” Asked about his challenges this year, Woods noted that the Wolverines did lose a lot of players on offense and defense to graduation. “We have young players who have to learn the game quick,” he said. “But this is an excellent offensive and defensive line and linebacking crew. They are as good as we’ve had, and they are going to step it up. It’s not really what we

lost – it’s how these guys have reloaded and they are going to step in and play. We are probably faster on defense this year than we were last year. That’s where our strength is right now: our O-line and D-line and our linebacking crew. The quarterback is a strength. If we work around those we’ll develop something pretty good.” So will Deer Valley repeat? “I don’t like making predictions,” said Woods. “But that’s a goal. We’re the defending champions and we want to defend the title.”

The Wolverines scrimmage at West High on Aug. 27, then preseason action kicks off Sept. 4 at Paradise, followed by home games Sept. 10 vs. Washington and Sept. 17 vs. Fremont, back on the road Sept. 25 at College Park and closing out at home on Oct. 1 vs. Vacaville.

Playful messiness – good for kids’ minds We know that kids love playing outside and getting messy, but playtime actually plays an important role in child development. “We’ve always known that kids and play are just a natural combo,” said Dr. Michele Borba, author of “The Big Book of Parenting Solutions.” “But new research also shows that letting kids engage in self-directed play has im-

mense value for their social, emotional, cognitive and physical growth.” • Play expands kids’ minds and neurological development. Self-initiated play improves skills, such as problem solving and interpreting, and is important to brain development and learning. • Play boosts children’s creativity and imagina-

tion. It provides an environment where they can invent, build, expand, explore and develop a whole different part of the brain. • Play stretches our children’s attention spans. Playing outdoors just 30 minutes per day increases a child’s ability to focus and pay attention. • Play boosts self-confidence and self-regula-

tion. Kids learn to become masters of their own destiny without an adult directing, pushing, managing or scheduling. • Play helps kids learn to entertain themselves and develop identity. Kids who know how to play rarely say, “I’m bored, Mom!” in an effort to be amused by you alone. – Courtesy of Family Features

Invisible braces bring visible results and big smiles Most people experience temporary, minor discomfort for a few days at the beginning of each new stage of treatment. This is normal and is typically described as a feeling of pressure. It is a sign that Invisalign is working – sequentially moving your teeth to their final destination. This discomfort typically goes away a couple of days after you insert the new aligner in the series. This procedure is especially popular for adults who previously had orthodontic treatment when they were younger and have experienced regression as they’ve aged. Rather than repeat the inconveniences and discomfort of braces, Invisalign provides an appeal-

Invisalign utilizes 3D computer technology with clear, plastic removable aligners to move teeth at a rate similar to traditional braces, but without any metal or wires. The aligners can be removed to allow for eating and tooth cleaning and are generally undetectable when worn. Invisalign’s computer imaging technology can predetermine and develop a treatment plan from the initial position of the patient’s teeth to their final desired position. From this a series of custom-made aligners is fabricated. Each aligner moves teeth incre-

mentally and is worn for about two weeks, then replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved. For years, orthodontists and dentists have used removable appliances for limited treatment. Now Invisalign treats a broader range of cases with greater precision. The principal difference is that Invisalign not only controls forces, but also controls the timing of the force application. At each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, and these movements are determined by the orthodontic treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system.

ing alternative. A common concern is whether or not this treatment is covered by dental insurance. Because dental benefits differ significantly from policy to policy, patients should review their coverage. However, if a patient has orthodontic coverage, Invisalign should be covered to the same extent as conventional braces. When treatment is complete, some patients might need a positioner, or conventional retainer. Other patients might need a clear plastic retainer similar to the ones Invisalign makes. Every patient is different and outcomes vary. – Courtesy of DentalSenders

When you’re paying attention to good nutrition, it’s easy to spend a lot of time focusing on what not to eat – all the stuff that clogs your arteries and expands your waistline. Now’s a good time to look at the things that you should eat a to keep your arteries healthy. Some foods pack more punch than others. Here are five foods that have a lot of disease-fighting power: Salmon: As far as seafood goes, this delicious fish is one of your best food sources of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, which can help keep your heart rate steady, lower your triglycerides – a type of blood fat -- and slow the growth of atherosclerotic plaque. Broccoli: It may not rank as the favorite food of kids, but as an adult you can probably appreciate the health benefits that broccoli offers. Experts think anti-cancer substances in the green veggies may act as antioxidants

or encourage enzymes that detoxify harmful chemicals in your body. Almonds: These tasty nuts are a good source of fiber and the antioxidant Vitamin E, and the fat they contain is mostly monounsaturated, which is considered a “good” type of fat that can help lower your cholesterol. Blueberries: These vivid little orbs are chock-full of antioxidants, which can help lower your risk of heart disease and cancer by neutralizing free radicals, rogue oxygen molecules that can contribute to atherosclerosis and damage your DNA. Green tea: This drink contains chemicals called polyphenols, which act as antioxidants. It may help control your blood sugar and lower your cholesterol. All these add up to plenty of good reasons to switch some of your daily servings of soda with green tea. — Courtesy of ARAcontent

Enjoy the view from the ‘Bench’ The Vagabond Players will present the comedy “A Bench in the Sun” on Sunday, Sept. 19 at 2 p.m. and Wednesday, Sept. 22 at 2 p.m. in Antioch’s El Campanil Theatre, 602 W. Second St. “A Bench in the Sun” tells the story of two seniors in a retirement home bickering about the mundane lives they lead. One is a crusty accountant who prefers to stay in his pajamas all day; the other is a debonair fellow who loves to dance. They find a new topic of bickering – a glitzy movie star who moves into the facility. The play is written by Ron Clark, who has written for Jackie Gleason and Mel Brooks. The Vagabond Players, Inc. is a nonprofit theater troupe that travels to senior centers, retirement homes and communities, assisted living centers and health care facilities, bringing live theater to those who might not get out to experience it. Among the Players’ goals is to dispel myths about aging and celebrate the talents of older artists. The actors are primarily seniors. Admission to “A Bench in the Sun” is $15 for adults: $12 for seniors and $10 for youth. For tickets and information, call 925-757-9500 or visit www.elcampaniltheatre.com.

Award-winning wines – Contra Costa roots by Kiki Powers California Wine & Food Alliance Cline Cellars winemaker Charlie Tsegeletos, observing the late morning Sonoma fog, notes that the 2010 grape harvest might be later than normal. The same dynamic might well hold true for our own Contra Costa County. There’s another connection between the two wine-growing regions – and a big one. Sonoma-based Cline Cellars has strong roots in our own East County community. Did you know that in the late 1800s, Oakley had thousands of acres of orchards and healthy vineyards? Fred Cline’s maternal grandfather, Valeriano Jacuzzi – of pump and spa fame – had long called this place home. On summer visits to his grandparents, Fred learned to love the agricultural life and the mysteries of vinifying grapes into wine. These lessons led him to earn a degree in agriculture management from UC Davis. In 1982, Fred founded Cline Cellars near Oakley. Here he preserved and restored many ancient vine sites to their rightful reign as premier California wine lands. Fred Cline was one of the original “Rhone Rangers,” a group of winemakers dedicated to promoting American Rhonevarietal wines. American Rhone-style wines are made from the same grapes that have flourished for centuries in France’s Rhone River Valley, and their growing popularity in the United States speaks to their versatility with food, wide range of rich flavors, and the skills of American winemakers. Rhone-style grapes that thrive in the Contra Costa climate include Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignane. In fact, Charlie Tsegeletos refers to Contra Costa County as a “treasure trove” for these grape varietals – as well as other non-Rhone varietals such

as Zinfandel. It turns out that Cline Cellars and Charlie hold Mourvèdre – with its rustic flavor, palate length and modest tannic structure – in such high regard that they make four Mourvèdre wines from our local ancient vine grapes. Charlie finds our local terroir imparts luscious chocolate and cherry undertones to Contra Costa ancient vine Mourvèdre. Terroir – which means “soil” in French – refers to the flavors and aromas that soil and geography impart to a wine. The fact is, although Contra Costa has yet to acquire its own AVA – American Viticultural Area – recognized by the federal government, this is clearly a region on the rise. The Contra Costa Winegrowers Association and many residents believe an established AVA would benefit our greater community and local economy, and the puzzle may well fall into place for this promising region before long. Meanwhile, local wines continue to gain greater recognition and acclaim. So, wine lovers who prefer to eat and drink local: stay tuned for more good things – from your own backyard.

Bowlers from page 4B According to Paris, “Our youth bowlers are great kids, and the seniors were fantastic. They all had a great time, and it was a great turn-out.” Damico echoed her sentiment: “It was an absolute success. I am so proud of these kids and pleased to see the support from our seniors.” The youth bowlers were equally enthusiastic. “It was so cool. It was nice to get to know some of the senior bowlers,” said Michael Gonzales. “It was fun. The kids were very nice,” said Ardel Bert. Harvest Park Bowl owner Jim Wangeman sees the senior/youth tournament as an ongoing event. “It was very rewarding to see the mix of seniors and youth,” he said, “and how well they interacted and had fun. We’ll do it again for sure.” RESULTS (Youth bowlers are listed first) Division A (no handicap) Ashley Jones and Keith Jones Division B (no handicap) Brooke Norwood and Marie Wilson Division A (handicap) First Place: AJ Collins and Bob Damico Second Place: Kyle Dryer and Greg Mattus Third Place: Tie – Conner Wax and Jerry Marshall; Zak Gadberry and Doug LaMee Fourth Place: DeAnza DeVera and Karen Patterson Fifth Place: Mariah Dong and Don Patterson Sixth Place: Michael Gonzales and Paul Elmer Winners Division B (handicap) First Place: Jacob Scocca and Ed Stewart Second Place: Zach Briggs and Ed Gallagher Third Place: Shelby Throntveit and Bert Bertalero Fourth Place: Sara Kostenuk and Eloise Gatson Fifth Place: Alexa Sylva and Jim Padilla Sixth Place: Colin Hannigan and Barbara Matteucci

Falcons from page 2B to be brutal this year,” said the coach. “I mean, everyone’s competitive, everyone’s gotten better. It’s just going to be a five-week battle.” And the preseason won’t be a picnic either. “It’s just as tough,” said Hartwig. “We open with Amador Valley (Sept. 3), who made the playoffs

and then Berkeley (Sept. 10), a playoff team, both on the road. And then we come back and play Merrill West (Sept. 17) from Tracy and then we play Golden Valley (Sept. 26), who two years ago was a section finalist from Merced. And then College Park (Oct. 1), who is a solid program. So we play a pretty darn tough schedule.”

After a bye week, league action starts Oct. 15 at home against Antioch, followed Oct. 22 with the Homecoming game against Deer Valley. They are on the road Oct. 29 at Pittsburg, then home Nov. 5 against Heritage. The season concludes with the Bell Game tentatively scheduled for Wednesday Nov. 10 at Liberty.

Heritage from page 1B was unanimous All League. He has a ton of talent and a great attitude. If we keep him healthy he should have a great year.” Also returning are Tyler McDonald (seven yards per carry) and Treyvon Hanna (five yards per carry). On the down side, the Patriots lost their entire defensive line to graduation along with three starters on the offensive line, but Haagenson’s not worried. “I think we will be fine,” said the coach. “I think our defense will be our strength. Especially our speed; we are fast on defense. They are pursuing really hard. Last year our defense was our weakness. This year I think it should be our strength.” A standout lineman is 6-foot-8-inch Will Oliver, whose size compensates for his lack of experience. “He didn’t play much last year. He still has a lot to learn. But we are going to leave him in there to make as many mistakes as he needs to, because he has a lot of talent.” Haagenson is encouraged by the character of this year’s entire squad: “I just like the effort that they are putting out. They have met every challenge so far. They are not shying away from the hard work. They are showing up on time. They are self starters, getting warmed up on their own. They are a little more mature group this year.” The challenge this season, in addition to reducing turnovers, is strengthening the pass defense. But the coach assures Patriots fans his team will be ready to play: “We are always going to put out our best effort. We are focused on discipline. We hold our program in high regard and will not be an embarrassment to the school. Hopefully, we can put out a product that people can be proud of on and off the field.” Does that mean this could be the year Heritage takes the league crown away from Deer Valley? “I never go into a season without saying the championship is the ultimate goal,” he said. To help prepare his players for the always challenging BVAL schedule, Haagenson has scheduled a preseason that includes four championship teams. “I always try to get the toughest preseason I can,” he said. “We are always trying to play the best teams we can. This year we are just lucky to hook five really solid teams in the preseason. I just hope we play our best football when we get into the league games.” Helping offset the toughness of the early going is the fact that the first three games will be played at home. After a scrimmage Aug. 27 at Foothill, the Patriots will host Novato on Sept. 3, Montgomery on Sept. 20 and Kennedy on Sept. 17 before closing out the preseason on the road Sept. 24 at James Logan and Oct. 1 at Concord. After a bye week, league action starts at Liberty on Oct. 15, Homecoming against Pittsburg on Oct. 22, then on the road at Freedom on Oct. 29 and Antioch on Nov. 5 before finishing at home Nov. 12 against Deer Valley. All games start at 7 p.m. except for Concord, which kicks off at 7:30 p.m. “We are looking forward to it,” said Haagenson. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.
