The town’s quest to determine whether it can afford a new competitive-grade, six-lane pool did not move forward at last week’s Community Services District (CSD) board meeting, nor did it end. Ron Bravo of Terracon Aquatic Design presented to the board his firm’s completion of the first of three phases of a $42,500 design contract the town signed in July. In the end, the board asked for another presentation at its next meeting with more detail. Bravo presented a detailed estimate of what it would cost to build a pool, while clarifying that Terracon’s estimate was not a bid. “I want to be clear: It’s an opinion of probable costs,” Bravo told the board. “It’s not a bid ... we’re not contractors, we don’t build the pools, we’re not offering

Long-range trans plan could head to ballot by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer

Contra Costa County’s transportation future is on the fast track to becoming reality. Now, agency leaders — and eventually area voters — just need to greenlight the idea to maintain its momentum. The Contra Costa County Transportation Authority recently created a 35-year, $3.6 billion expenditure plan to guide the area’s transportation future. The plan will be presented to all cities in the county before possibly heading to the March 2020 ballot.

“ We tried to put a plan together that was so profound that it would be no problem, that people would say ‘Oh my gosh, that is what I want Contra Costa transportation systems to be like.’

” Randell Iwasaki, Contra Costa Transportation Authority executive director

The proposal, funded through a half-cent transportation sales tax, aims to relieve highway and interchange congestion; improve the availability,

the disabled; and fulfill a slew of other commitments, including modernized local streets, enhanced walking and cycling options and better air quality. If sent to the ballot and approved by voters, the halfcent sales tax would run until 2055, and augment the similar, 2004-approved Measure J, until funding from that measure runs out in 2034. “We tried to put a plan together that was so profound that it would be no problem, that people would say ‘Oh my gosh, that is what I want Contra see Plan page 30

City cleaning up Brentwood Boulevard by Deanna Gordon Staff Writer

The City of Brentwood has begun a cleanup on Brentwood Boulevard between its southern city limits and Birch Street. The police, parks and recreation, and public works departments will work collaboratively throughout the next few weeks to address blight, traffic hazards, public safety and improve city beautification. Councilmember Karey Rarey wrote in a Facebook post that after about a year of effort, the city has obtained permission from Union Pacific Railroad to access its property to clean up the oleanders, which have proven obstructive to both vehicle and pedestrian traffic and blighted the general area. Every other oleander bush will be removed, and the remaining bushes will be trimmed from an estimated height of 25 to 30 feet, down to just 8 feet. Crime scene cleaners are also removing hazardous materials from the area. “This is a project that’s way overdue,” said Brentwood Police Chief Tom Hansen. “The garbage was horrible — there was so much blight there. This will beautify the city, increase traffic safety and increase public safety.” Clearing the area will make the area safer for pedestrian crossings, Hansen said, and enable parking along the city limits where none was previously available. Prior to beginning the cleanup efforts,

Cleanup efforts began along a portion of Brentwood Boulevard near Birch Street this week. The stretch of road has long been an eyesore — and the police, parks and recreation, and public works departments are working collaboratively to improve the area.

homeless encampments in the area were given 72-hour notices last week to vacate the area, and were offered services with Contra Costa County. Hansen said there were about seven individuals living in the area for several months. Nearly everyone he spoke with refused services, citing various reasons: not liking the structure of a shelter; mental health issues; drug addiction; not wanting to be split up from their partner; or not being able to take their pet. Hansen hopes some may change

their minds when the weather gets colder and wetter. “If they want help, we will try to get them help,” he said. In addition to cleanup efforts, Brentwood Parks and Recreation is preparing a public art project for some of the high-profile entrances to the city, including the southern city limits on Brentwood Boulevard. Director Bruce Mulder said his department has found a national artist, Douwe Blumberg, who will prepare an art piece,

“Fields of Time,” that portrays Brentwood’s history of agriculture and art, and depicts Mount Diablo and the city’s logo. There will also be a new “Welcome to Brentwood” sign. The project is expected to be completed sometime next spring. Other high-profile areas that will see new art pieces include: the median at the Highway 4 and Balfour Road corridor, and Highway 4 and Sand Creek Road, in front of the Streets of Brentwood.

Anonymous tip app for students Brentwood Correspondent

Middle school students in the Brentwood Union School District (BUSD) have been given a new tool to help themselves and one another: Say Something — an anonymous-reporting app that allows students to report everything from bullying to acts of violence and self-harm. “We are committed to proactively preventing violence,” said BUSD Superintendent Dana Eaton. “In 70% of suicides and 80% of school shootings, someone was told about these plans beforehand ... This tool allows students to anonymously report and ensure that adults can intervene and get help for students immediately.” Eaton said the hope is to empower students to take action to prevent violence by giving them a safe place to report what they have seen or heard. Say Something is designed to teach youth and teens to recognize signs of someone wanting to hurt themselves or others and go to a trusted adult for help. Students can download the app onto their phones and then create an anonymous account, allowing them to re-

Join the

port. Once they’ve given a tip, they open a dialogue with a triage center which determines if the situation is life threatening or not. If necessary, the triage center will notify the student’s school and the Brentwood Police Department (BPD). So far, more than 20 tips have been reported since the beginning of the school year, and several students’ lives have been impacted in a positive way, according to BUSD Director of Student Services, Chris Calabrese. He explained the school district is legally required to have a method for students to anonymously communicate tips about bullying or other negative situations, and the Say Something app, from the nonprofit Sandy Hook Promise (SHP), was the right fit. “ We ’ v e i n t e r ve n e d in many students’ lives as a result,

!

offering counseling support and direct intervention,” Calabrese said. “In this world of social media, often kids find themselves in a place from four in the afternoon to 10 o’clock at night dealing with a situation, and they may not have the resources to seek help ... Many of the calls come in in the evenings.” He added that he felt encouraged by one incident in which several different students reported that one student needed help — a sign that the kids in his district were willing and able to seek help for a friend when they weren’t sure what to do. “That shows me the system is working,” said Calabrese. Mitch Brouillette, school resource officer from the BPD, said the app is an important part of the district’s safety plan and a valuable tool to stop something before it happens. “This is a collaboration between the schools and the Brentwood Police Department, working together to do everything we can to ensure our schools are safe,” Brouillette said. “This took a lot of work, a lot of collaboration with everyone, but it also has the ability to be the most effective.” This program is free to the BUSD through the generosity of donors to Sandy Hook Promise, a national nonprofit founded and led by individuals whose loved ones were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.

Wish comes true for Oakley first-grader by Deanna Gordon Staff Writer

Trevor Peterson, a 6-year-old from Oakley, has a lot more on his plate than the average first-grader. Born with a congenital heart defect, he had surgery as a baby. Now, he is being treated for juvenile arthritis, which affects his hands, wrists, elbows and ankles. He receives monthly infusions, which mean long days at the hospital and missing time from school at Gehringer Elementary. But Trevor doesn’t let it get him down, according to his mom, Mindy Peterson. “He has an amazing attitude,” she said. “He inspires everyone. He tries his best to be like every other kid.” His family wanted to do something special for his birthday, so his grandmother, June Peterson, suggested applying to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a nonprofit organization that grants wishes for children with critical illnesses. “He has been through so much,” June said. “He’s our little warrior. I thought he would be a good candidate.” Mindy was apprehensive, but she figured she would give it a try. The Petersons submitted an application in March for their family to go on a Disney cruise. Trevor loves Disney characters — espe-

cially the Marvel superheroes, Jack Sparrow, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. Trevor’s doctor signed the paperwork immediately, and the Petersons got his application submitted. Then they waited. Mindy and her husband told Trevor about the proposal, but they urged him not to get his hopes up. In August, Make-A-Wish volunteers delivered a box to their doorstep containing balloons, a superhero costume and a note: “Trevor, your wish to go on a Disney cruise is coming true!” “He is so excited,” Mindy said, noting that Trevor and his 9-year-old brother, Anthony, have a daily countdown going until they leave. “Anthony is so good with him. If he had any other big brother, I don’t know that their relationship would be the same.” The family of four will leave for their five-night, six-day cruise to the Bahamas’ Nassau and Disney’s own port, Castaway Cay, on Nov. 9. Mindy’s birthday also happens to be that week. “I’m looking forward to all the excitement,” Mindy said. “The excitement for them to just be kids and not have to worry.” “I’m thrilled about them being able to go as a family,” June added. “What an awesome opportunity for them.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net

Stand Down on the Delta serves veterans in need by Deanna Gordon Staff Writer

Delta Veterans Group is hosting its biannual event, Stand Down on the Delta, at Antioch’s Contra Costa County Fairgrounds. The event, which starts Friday, Sept. 20 at 8 a.m. and ends Monday, Sept. 23 at 5 p.m., will house homeless and at-risk veterans in high-quality sleeping tents that include lighting and air conditioning. J.R. Wilson — U.S. Army veteran, president and founder of Delta Veterans

Group — said the long weekend will provide numerous free services for the veterans community, including 8,500 meals; clothing; employment services; medical, dental and vision services; legal services; alcohol and addiction counseling; mental health services; haircuts and hygiene items; grooming and spay and neuter for pets; and more. Throughout the event, organizers will also provide recreational therapy in the way of golf, roller skating, a car show, music and on-site trout fishing. Stand Down on the Delta is a col-

laboration of numerous veterans groups, nonprofit organizations, local businesses and other sponsors. “It’s a real team effort,” Wilson said. “When people ask, ‘How can I serve my community?’ This is that event.” Wilson estimates 300-350 veterans will be served throughout the weekend. He added the event will also focus on camaraderie — something he says many veterans lose after they leave the military and re-enter civilian life. “Here, they can feel like they’re part of the community,” he said.

While Wilson wants veterans to take advantage of the services, Stand Down on the Delta will also focus on empowerment, teaching veterans how they can better themselves and maybe come back to a future event and volunteer. “That’s how we judge success,” he said. “We want to make our community better than we found it.” The Contra Costa Fairgrounds are located at 1201 W. 10th St. in Antioch.

Developer offers district $11 million deal by Tony Kukulich Staff Writer

GBN Developers, LLC, the firm behind the Vineyards at Deer Creek, has offered the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (ECCFPD) a deal worth $11 million to offset the increased demand on fire services expected to result from that development. The offer was scheduled to be discussed during the Sept. 11 ECCFPD board meeting. GBN is spearheading the passage of Measure L, which would expand Brentwood’s urban limit line (ULL) to allow the development of up to 2,400 homes to be built over the next 20 years, as part of an 815-acre project situated north of Balfour Road, east of Deer Valley Road and west of the Shadow Lakes and Brentwood Hills neighborhoods. Much of the opposition to the project has focused on the strain that a large-scale development would place on the already resource-constrained fire district. Last month the ECCFPD Fire Board considered a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the district and the developer in which the developer would have provided $750,000 for the startup of a two-man squad – a vehicle manned by firefighters but designed to primarily respond to medical calls. During a three-hour special board meeting, the merits of the MOU were debated and ultimately the board opted not to put the MOU to a vote. Instead, the board directed ECCFPD Fire Chief Brian Helmick to re-enter negotiations with GBN in search of a richer deal. Under the new terms disclosed this week, the $11 million deal has two

primary components. An engine station comparable to existing Station 53 in Oakley would be built by GBN and deeded to the district upon completion. It’s estimated value is $6.5 million, and construction would commence with the start of construction of the 601st home in the project. It would be completed within two years. The remaining $4.5 million would include an initial payment of $1 million to be paid to the district at the start of the project. The balance will come from a $2,333 fee assessed to the first 1,500 homes in the project to pay for the equipment, training and other costs associated with the deployment of a new station. Additional funding of approximately $1.5 million annually would be generated by a community facilities district fee not less than $650 per household. Property taxes are expected to generate approximately another $2.5 million a year. These two revenue streams are expected to pay for the ongoing operation of the newly built station. If the new MOU is approved by the board, the fire district would issue a resolution stating the MOU satisfactorily mitigates funding for fire services related to the development project, improves the transportation network within the district’s service area and supports the district’s goal of improving service levels across the entire district. Links to the ECCFPD Fire Board agenda and all supporting documentation can be found at www. eccfpd.org/2019-09-11-eccfpd-boardof-directors-meeting.

PREPPING EXTERIOR OF YOUR HOME

LANDSCAPING – This is one of the most noticeable aspects of your home as the buyer pulls up for the first time. Grass should be green (even if that means bringing in new sod), all areas should be free of weeds, remove dead/dying plants, cut back bushes as needed, and add some fresh plants/flowers as appropriate. PRESSURE WASH – Sometimes a quick pressure wash will really freshen up the exterior of the house, patios, driveway, etc. Be sure to hit all the areas under the eaves and patio covers. However, be sure to use the low setting and the right nozzle so you don’t do damage or peel any paint off. CURB APPEAL TRICKS – Have a look and see if your home would benefit from any of the following: Paint your mailbox. Fresh flowers at base of mailbox. New house numbers on house or mailbox. Add new outdoor furniture if you have a porch. Coil up or remove hoses. Remove any empty pots, bikes, toys, etc. Roll garbage cans out of sight. And

then obviously repair anything that needs it – loose gutters, torn front screen door, etc. PAINTING – If your home really needs exterior paint, now would be the time to do it. However, if it’s questionable if you really need new paint, one trick is to just paint the trim and accent pieces like eaves, gutters and borders around doors and windows. Those are usually darker colors which tend to fade faster than the lighter body parts of your home. FRONT DOOR – Give your front door special attention as that really sets the tone for the buyer as they wait on your porch to enter the home. At least clean it but better yet to give it a fresh coat of paint, new door hardware and kickplate. Then finish with a new “Welcome” mat to really set the stage for success!

A recent decision by Brentwood leaders could reap the city future financial benefits. City officials announced this week they will designate areas around downtown, Brentwood Boulevard and the northwest corner of town as “priority development areas” (PDAs), making the municipality eligible to receive regional and state funding for matters such as transportation projects and affordable housing in those areas. “It will support local planning,” said Brentwood Assistant City Manager Terrence Grindall. PDAs — now found in all Contra Costa cities, except Clayton — are designated areas where residential and employment growth are expected to grow sustainably with ample public transit, reduced vehicle miles traveled, lessened greenhouse gas production and an improved jobs-to-housing balance. Brentwood’s newly designated PDAs include the downtown and Brentwood Boulevard areas, along with over 430 acres surrounded by Lone Tree Way to the north, Heidorn Ranch Road to the west, Sand Creek Road to the south and Shady Willow Lane to the east. The selected zones are scheduled to guide investment growth patterns in the future development of Plan Bay Area 2050 — a regional initiative to make the nine-county Bay

Area more equitable to all residents in the face of mounting economic, environmental, housing and transportation challenges. Bay Area jurisdictions have defined nearly 200 PDAs since 2008, and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission — the San Francisco Bay Area’s transportation planning, financing and coordinating agency — has invested more than $800 million in those areas.. Future funding opportunities are expected to center on specialized regional and state transportation, planning and affordablehousing money. “We have to get a PDA,” said Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor. “I am more than enthusiastic about this.” Cities retain all future planning control of the designated areas, but to be eligible for funding, the locations must feature a variety of special qualities, including transit at 15-minute headways (length of time between public transit vehicle arrivals at a stop); and a bike and pedestrian infrastructure plan.Grindall said the specified pieces of land either already meet all the requirements or soon will. “There are many grant programs that the regional government has that areas (that aren’t) priority development areas cannot apply for,” Grindall said. For more information on the city’s designation, see packet page 348 at www.bit.ly/ BrentwoodPDA.

Art Guild auctions off banners Join the Art Guild of the Delta for the third annual “Banner Up!” benefit gala, on Friday, Sept. 27, from 6 to 9 p.m., at Brentwood Community Center, 35 Oak St. Enjoy a fun evening with beautiful art banners, a silent auction, jazz guitar music and refreshments. Wine and beer will be available for purchase. Be the winning bidder on a banner and bring it home. Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor will be the master of ceremonies. There is no entry fee for this event. The popular “Banner Up!” program is sponsored by City of Brentwood Economic Development, City of Brentwood Arts Commission, Art Guild of the Delta (AGD), Downtown Brentwood Coalition, Bloomfield Vineyards and Zephyr Grill & Bar. Brentwood Library Foundation will be the recipient of 50 percent of the silent auction proceeds. This donation is offered

in support of public art installations in the Brentwood Library. Plan a visit to the beautiful new library at 104 Oak St., where some of last year’s banners are on display, as well as several permanent art pieces. “Banner Up!” provides local artists with an opportunity to create public art on up to 68 vinyl banners hung throughout Brentwood’s beautiful downtown during the months of June, July and August. The banners, all painted with original designs, add a bright and festive touch to the downtown streets (Oak, 1st, 2nd and Chestnut streets) and City Park. They are on display on the Brentwood Community Center public art walls during September, offering the public an opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of artwork created by friends and neighbors. The Art Guild of the Delta is a Brentwood-based art organization founded in

2013 as a nonprofit with the purpose of building a network of artists to work together to promote and inspire creative influence among themselves and their community. AGD unites people with a mutual interest in the fine arts, promoting camaraderie and ethical principles and practices, as well as fostering creativity among artists. AGD serves the community by providing a cohesive and congenial group who promotes arts and advancement in all areas of artistic endeavors. AGD provides scholarships to art students at Los Medanos College, provides art classes to the community through the Delta Gallery and provides a means for local artists to display their art. Delta Gallery is located at 2485 Sand Creek Road, Suite 128 in Brentwood. For more information, email Frank Littman at agdbannerup@gmail.com.

‘Chicago: The Musical’ razzle-dazzles Liberty High

Photo courtesy of Cindey Heidkamp

Students from the Liberty High School Playmakers Drama Club will be performing “Chicago: The Musical,” beginning Sept. 13. The various productions will feature a different cast of lead performers each weekend.

Liberty High School’s Playmakers Drama Club won three royalty-free performances of a high school edited version of “Chicago: The Musical” through the nationwide Razzle Dazzle contest. Samuel French Licensing Company, Playbill and Right On Cue Services took applications from youth drama clubs across the U.S., and Liberty was one of 10 high schools to win. Playmakers members had to submit a video and an essay answering the question, “How do you ‘razzle dazzle’ your community?” Liberty was the only California school and one of only three schools west of the Mississippi to be named a winner. The performance run will feature a different cast of lead characters each weekend, so choose ac-

cordingly. Performance dates and times are as follows: Friday, Sept. 13, and Saturday, Sept. 14 at 7 p.m.; Thursday, Sept. 19, and Friday, Sept. 20 at 7 p.m.; and Saturday, Sept. 21 at 2 p.m. Put on your bowler hats out, stretch out those jazz hands and shuffle on over to the performing arts center to celebrate a classic with Playmakers’ production of “Chicago: The Musical.” This high school edited version is considered PG-13. Tickets are $14 for general admission and $10 for students, and they are on sale now. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.bit.ly/liberty-chicago.

Donny Root

Jan. 19, 1982 – July 14, 2019 On Saturday, July 14, 2019, longtime Discovery Bay resident Donny Root passed away in his sleep after a short battle with cancer that had been diagnosed only a few weeks earlier. He was just 37 years old, born January 19, 1982, in St. George, Utah to Arthur and Linda Root, with the given name Donald Sean Root and was the fifth youngest of six children. Donny moved to Discovery Bay in 1998 and attended Liberty High School. He graduated in 2000. He quickly fell in love with the Delta and all the adventures that California offered. He worked as a construction foreman for Wingard Engineering and Smith Denison. He was also a partner in California Boat Lift Sales for almost 20 years. He was often seen at the local boat show and known by many in the community. Donny is survived by his wife of 10 years, Jennifer Root, his four siblings, Lisa Root (Kyle Brent), Jim Root, Kristi Rossmiller (Brad) and Philip Root (aka PJ), sister-in-law, Tammie Root, and niece/nephew, Jessica and Cody Root. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Butch Root. Although Donny’s life ended far too soon, he truly lived each day to the fullest. He was always the life of the party and the instigator of the shenanigans. He enjoyed nothing more than being with his friends at Pismo Beach with one of his many toys on the dunes, camping at the East Park Reservoir or up in Tahoe

where he loved to ski in the winter and hike in the summer. Whenever he had free time he could often be found on a jet ski or out in his boat. He loved teaching kids how to wake board and was an unofficial “uncle” to many. Donny lived his life boldly and fully, was a friend to many, and was always there with a helping hand. He was loved and will be missed immeasurably by his family, friends and those who knew him through his work and recreational activities. An open house will be held to celebrate his life on Saturday, September 14, 2019, from noon to 4 p.m. at the home of his former business partners, Tom & Nicolle, in Discovery Bay.

SEPTEMBER 13, 2019

Combining service with fun – two upcoming Rotary events We do not often have the opportunity to enjoy ourselves while, at the same time, doing something to make the world a better place. However, on September 21, East County residents will have an opportunity to do something good for our community, country and the world by treating themselves to a memorable night of fun, fellowship and feasting. On that day the Rotary Club of Brentwood will host Gala Carnivale. Seana Fippin, the club’s incoming president, accurately noted, “Having fun while making a difference is what Rotary is all about.” This will be the club’s 43rd annual fundraiser. For decades the event was known by the (somewhat baffling) name “Trade Club.” Many residents faithfully marked the date on their calendars each year because they regarded this as a unique opportunity to mix and mingle with members of the Rotary Club of Brentwood and with other guests that always included core members of the community. This year’s Gala will be bigger and better than ever because it will be held at Trilogy’s beautiful Club Los Meganos Events Center. Trilogy’s finest chefs will serve a delicious sit-down dinner. An amazing troupe of dancers from San Francisco, called ABADÁ Capoeira will perform in an AfroBrazilian capoeira style that is a unique fusion of dance, acrobatics and music.

For ticket information, go to www. brentwoodrotary94513.com or call 925487-6383. Oakley Gala and Comedy Show The following week, September 28, the Rotary Club of Oakley will host its first annual Gala and Comedy Show. A buffetstyle dinner, featuring steak, chicken and a

variety of dishes will provide choices suitable to any taste. Michael Mancini, a.k.a. World’s Funniest Cop, will provide the comedy. The event will be held at the new Oakley Recreation Center on O’Hara Avenue and will provide celebrants with a first look at the beautiful facility. David Wahl, the first president of the fledging club, ex-

pects the Gala to help introduce Rotary to the Oakley community. “It will show how much fun leadership and volunteer community service can be,” he said. For ticket information go to www.bit. ly/2kbUuyz or call 925-487-6383. Money raised from both events will help fund local outreach projects including the annual Dictionary Distribution, in which teams of Rotary members place a dictionary into the hands of every third grader. Money raised from the events will also go toward scholarships for high school students.

Deer Ridge golf course closes for good by Tony Kukulich and Kyle Szymanski Staff Writers

Just five days after a notice of closure appeared on the Deer Ridge Golf Club’s front doors, the Brentwood course ceased operations Sunday, Sept. 8. “As far as the ownership is concerned, it is permanently closed,” said Joe Dahlstrom, chief operating officer at Paradigm Golf Group, a golf course management and consulting company contracted in 2014 to manage the Deer Ridge and Shadow Lakes courses. “There is no alternative plan.” The course was part of a controversial plan proposed last year by SunCoast Golf, Inc., the owners of both the Deer Ridge and Shadow Lakes courses. The plan called for the two courses to be consolidated into a single, 18-hole facility, and for two age-restricted or memory-care facilities — up to three stories tall and totaling 560 units — be built on 32 acres of closed holes, in close proximity to existing single-family homes. Many residents in the Shadow Lakes and Deer Ridge communities vehemently opposed the plan, believing the changes could increase traffic, exacerbate the strain on city and fire services, decrease property values and diminish their quality of life. “Staff has considerable concerns that placing high-density housing in these established neighborhoods of single-family homes would have a substantial adverse impact on their nature and character,” wrote Brentwood

Planning Manager Erik Nolthenius in a city staff report last year. “Both Deer Ridge and Shadow Lakes were planned and constructed with the intent of low-density, low-impact use. Introducing high-density housing into these neighborhoods — with no buffer between the disparate densities — would fundamentally alter the visual character and atmosphere of the area.” SunCoast pulled the plug on the proposal just before it was to be considered by the Brentwood Planning Commission. While SunCoast offered no explanation for their decision at the time, planning commission documents indicated that city staff members were going to recommend the commission deny the project, due to concerns it could adversely affect the surrounding neighborhoods’ character and residents’ privacy. The inability to get the consolidation past the planning commission now appears to have sealed the Deer Ridge course’s fate. “After 30-some town hall meetings and well-thought-out plans, and working with the community and working with the city, at the last minute, the plan was not moved forward at the city level,” said Dahlstrom. Dahlstrom explained that during those meetings, it was made clear by SunCoast that any plan to keep the courses open would require a real estate development feature, and without that component, the closure of the courses would be unavoidable. “(The closure) wasn’t in retaliation,” said Dahlstrom. “It wasn’t anything other than

“ As far as the ownership is concerned, it is permanently closed. There is no alternative plan.

Joe Dahlstrom chief operating officer at Paradigm Golf that was the last chance to really make something work there. The city felt differently. A lot of the people in the community felt differently, and unfortunately that was the outcome.” Deer Ridge resident Rod Flohr played an active role in opposing SunCoast’s development plan. He said he’s heard other residents express the belief that Deer Ridge’s closure was a retaliatory move in reaction to the failure of SunCoast’s plan, but he doesn’t believe that to be the case. “If anything, it might be another ploy to try to convince people that their plan for the combined course and building the apartments is the best plan,” said Flohr. “We often felt that Shadow Lakes was closed to get people living in that community to support the plan by making them live on an unpleasant golf course. So no, I don’t think it’s retribution. I think it might be a strategy, but that’s just an opinion.” There were 15 employees at the Deer Ridge course, most working on a part-time

basis. Some of those employees were expected to move to the Shadow Lakes course, where efforts are underway to revitalize that facility. A driving range and event center are tentatively planned to open there in the fall, and there is talk of the golf course reopening some time next year. In May, the Brentwood Planning Commission unanimously approved construction of a modular building to house a 1,440-squarefoot pro shop at the Shadow Lakes site to serve the driving range. Representatives from SunCoast did not respond to inquiries regarding the status of this project, but Brentwood City Councilmember Karen Rarey said she’s learned that work on the event center is progressing. However, the plans to construct the pro shop have been shelved for the time being. Under the terms of the planning commission’s approval, the building’s construction must commence by May 7, 2020, or the approval will expire. Rarey said she’s been told that plans to reopen the Shadow Lakes course will depend on the degree of success achieved by the event center and driving range. “My hope is that the Shadow Lakes event center and driving range are successful enough to reopen the Shadow Lakes course,” said Rarey. “In the meantime, we will work with the owners of the courses to make sure that proper fire clearance is maintained throughout both courses.” SunCoast did not respond to requests for comment regarding the closure of the Deer Ridge Golf Club.

opposed to slugging down a huge glass all at one time. The effects of too little liquid have shown that dehydration increases the risk for constipation, urinary tract infection, respiratory tract infection, kidney stones and medicine toxicity. Studies also show dehydration can be a factor to an increase in falls, which may lead to otherwise unnecessary stays in hospitals or rehabilitation facilities. A good rule of thumb for seniors is anywhere from five to eight 8-ounce glasses of liquid (preferably water) per day, although everyone’s needs are different. Seniors who drink at least five glasses of water experience lower rates of numerous issues, including coronary heart disease. Those who have a tendency to get dehydrated should avoid, or at least decrease, their intake of diuretics like coffee and tea. Minimalize alcohol and high-protein drinks, especially in large quantities, because they also have a diuretic effect. This leads to a greater loss of body fluids, which can cause or exacerbate dehydration. Get much needed protein in food like chicken, fish or cottage cheese. If water is not appealing, try liquids like juice or flavored water. Avoid sodas and drinks with little or no benefit. I drink water all the time now, but that was not always the case. I started by pouring half juice and half water, slowly increasing the water until there was no juice at all. Foods like lettuce, fresh fruits and vegetables are high in water and can make up for some of the liquid you don’t drink. Fear of incontinence can diminish the urge to consume liquids, so having more during the day — as opposed to right before bed — makes sense.

Early warning signs of dehydration include fatigue, dizziness, constant thirst, dark urine, headaches, dry mouth or nose, dry skin and muscle cramping. Risk factors heighten possibility of dehydration and they include, but are not limited to: swallowing disorders caused by stroke, Parkinson’s disease or dementia, obesity, seniors over 85 years of age and bedridden patients. Watch for extreme diarrhea, vomiting or excessive sweating, which all can lead to dehydration issues. People who take five or more prescription medications or have five or more chronic diseases are also at risk. Once it is determined you may be dehydrated, get plenty of rest and drink water. Consume in small amounts over a 24-hour period of time until you feel back to normal. This is for minimal to moderate symptoms. Have some pretzels, nuts or salted crackers, which help regulate the electrolytes. We sweat out salt when dehydrated, so these can help replace it. Low levels of electrolytes are common with dehydration and can be replenished by having sports drinks and glucose water. Ask your physician what the best course of action is for you. In severe cases, fluids may need to be transmitted into the body intravenously. If you feel these symptoms and are not sure how serious they may be, don’t take a chance. Call your doctor, visit urgent care or go to the hospital. Water is by far my favorite beverage these days. It’s the best thirst quencher, is healthy and even better — it’s calorie free!

The Press welcomes new sales, marketing director Meet Gloria George, director of sales and marketing at The Brentwood Press & Publishing Corporation. Gloria comes to The Press with an extensive background in sales, marketing and publishing, including 30 years in the high-tech industry and nearly a decade as the publisher of “TravelHost of Monterey.” The Sunnyvale native started her career at a young age as a sidekick newspaper “barker.” Her father, a machinist at Westinghouse, allowed his children to sell their residual newspapers from their route each morning in front of the main gate in Sunnyvale. It was there that Gloria got her start in the industry. “I was 7 years old, and we would sell the leftover papers on the corner of Westinghouse where Dad worked,” said Gloria. “I would start barking, ‘get your papers, read all about it.’ I even had a little red wagon. It was definitely

Library introduces new library card designs The Contra Costa County Library is excited to offer the public five new library card designs. First-time cardholders may choose one of the new designs when signing up. Those who already have cards may replace their current card at no charge. The new card designs include Mount Diablo, an astronaut, a train, an otter and a fox. “The new cards will allow us to reach potential new library users, as well as re-engage with those who have not used their card in a while,” said County Librarian Melinda Cervantes. “The new designs are also beautiful and fun.” The five new cards were chosen as part of a voting process earlier this year, when members of the public were asked to choose their five favorites out of nine designs. The introduction of new cards and the elimination of overdue fines are just two of the changes the library made this year,

Opinion EDITORIALS, LETTERS & COMMENTARY

Let’s take another look at fire situation

Editor: I am a concerned citizen of East Contra Costa County. We are a community just waiting for another tragedy to occur in our area because of the long response times of emergency service (fire and medical). Apparently, our new fire chief has published procedures in case of a house fire, to try to save the adjacent homes, but because of a lack of resources, allow the initial home to burn to the ground. I have never lived in a community before that had that as part of their standard operating procedure. Yet in Brentwood and Oakley combined, the largest portion of East Contra Costa Fire Protection area, they are actively trying to foster additional home development for the increased tax revenue. Brentwood is even trying to increase the amount of land zoned for residential, development in lieu of its present agriculture zoning. According to a paper developed by the East Contra Costa County Voters Association, California Government Code, Section 66499.34 states, “No local agency shall issue any permit or grant any approval necessary to develop any real property which has been divided, or which has resulted from a division, in violation of the provisions of this division or of the provisions of local ordinances enacted pursuant to this division if it finds that development of such real property is contrary to the public health or the public safety.” Approving this project would add people and commercial structures to the service area of the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (ECCFPD), a fire district that is underfunded, and now provides an inadequate level of service to the residents of Brentwood, Oakley, Discovery Bay, Byron and Bethel Island. Increasing the fire district’s workload can have no other outcome than to degrade current response time and service levels, and as such, is “contrary to the public health or public safety.”

Consequently, the project cannot be approved in its current condition. Assemblyman Jim Frazier’s office has told the Brentwood City Council that he “believes that ECCFPD is facing a fiscal emergency and that we have a public safety emergency.” ECCFPD has numerous initiatives underway that are aimed at addressing this underfunding. The district is actively communicating with Sacramento legislators and educating the public as to their critical public service activities. But the funding problem — the public safety emergency — persists. Erecting a new fire station on Shady Willow Lane and funding a two-person rescue vehicle will have a positive impact on medical response times. But if examined closely, these actions are not likely to bring response time into agreement with general plan goals. Approving new developments without addressing this emergency response situation (long term) is wrong and violates state law. Please do not approve this project in its current condition without first taking steps to assure the health and safety of the residents of Brentwood, Oakley, Discovery Bay, Byron and Bethel Island.

Questions for our representatives

Editor: I would have shown up and asked Mark DeSaulnier and Jerry McNerney about water costs that have shot up in the past couple years, along with sewage fees. I think gyms like In-Shape or 24 Hour Fitness around here are to be blamed for wasteful water-use patterns. Members know they don’t have to pay for showers, as it is included in their membership. They often goof around for hours nonstop. Think of how much water is overflowing our limited sewage treatment plants. Those gyms should be charged more for water, and homeowners who like to grow vegetables and flowers should be allowed extra units of water at lower prices.

I am not suggesting we can go back to the old ways of wasting water down the street curb, but I think it is crazy with all those water bills lately. It is highway robbery! Brett Kuntze Antioch

Neighbors helping neighbors

Editor: Recently, my wife got a completely flat tire in traffic while driving two of my children to high school during the morning commute. The car was stuck in a lane blocking traffic and, needless to say, it was pretty hectic. Three complete strangers stopped to offer assistance. One tried to change the tire but could not get one of the lug nuts free — but he still gave the kids a ride to school. One went out of his way, went to the store and bought a can of Fix-a-Flat out of his own pocket to see if that would help. A third kind gentleman was able to get the lug nut to turn and changed the tire for her, saving the day. Thanks to each and every one of you! None of these wonderful people had to stop. None of these people had to offer any help. But, out of the kindness of their hearts, their sense of community and goodness, they helped a stranger and her children. I’m forever in your debt; I thank you for what you did; and I am so happy to live in this community. We often hear such negative things about each other from the news media, political parties, politicians and social media every day that we forget there are really good people right next to us. This was a really good reminder. William Weber Discovery Bay

Many thanks

Editor: The family of Bill Winthrop Jr. would like to say thank you to all our family, friends, neighbors and colleagues for your support during this sad time. It takes a life event like this to realize even more how much all of you mean to us. In one of the saddest moments of our lives, we were not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our hearts. Thank you for the sympathy cards, phone calls, emails, visits, food, flowers, spiritual bouquets, masses, dedicated hours in the adoration chapel, prayers, rosaries and donations to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. All of these gestures make Bill’s passing a little more bearable. Requiescit in pace. We especially thank those who came to Bill’s memorial mass. We were sitting in the front pew and were overwhelmed when we turned around and there you were – all you dear, sweet people, there to give support and comfort that was sorely needed; old friends and neighbors; lovely colleagues from Garin School and the district; my dear tutoring buddies from IHM; my husband’s Open Mic comrades; “kids” our kids had known from school and some of their friends now. You made that extra effort. You will never be forgotten. Thank you to Father Erick for the beautiful service and for visiting Bill in the hospital. Thank you to the choir and its director for the music at mass. Bill would have loved “Soon And Very Soon!” We must not forget Lucy Pedroza in the parish office and the ladies, McCann and McNamara, who were so very kind and helpful to us, who had never done this before and did not want to do it now. Your expressions of sympathy and friendship will long be remembered. William and Shirley Winthrop David and Jodie Winthrop Sal and Julie Sorbello and families

Blocked point-after-touchdown kick secures Liberty thrilling overtime win A host of Liberty High School football players hoist the Honor Bowl trophy following the Lions’ thrilling 28-27 win over Clayton Valley Charter in overtime. The Honor Bowl was a two-week, sixgame showcase at two California sites that aimed to educate students, coaches and communities about veterans’ needs.

by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer

Brentwood’s reigning state champion Liberty High School football team is developing a knack for keeping fans on the edge of their seats this season. That may not always be stress-free for fans, but no one’s complaining: Liberty is 3-0. A week after the Lions’ defense held off Oakdale with a late stand to pull out a 19-14 win, Liberty blocked Clayton Valley’s point after touchdown (PAT) attempt in overtime, to pull off a 28-27 win in the Honor Bowl at James Logan High School in Union City. “The boys fought and it was crazy,” said Liberty head coach Ryan Partridge. “We knew it was going to be a dog fight. We absolutely knew it.” Clayton Valley quarterback Jake Kern’s 2-yard keeper brought the Ugly Eagles (1-1) within a point in overtime, but the PAT was deflected by the Lions as it rose toward the uprights, eliciting a wild celebration on the Liberty sideline. “I just had a feeling it was going to end up like this,” Partridge said. “Not overtime, and the new rule and a special-teams win, but that was such a good football team we played, and we are pretty lucky to come out winners.” Liberty running back Darrion Bartley’s 26 carries for 110 yards sustained the Lions, scoring three of four Liberty touchdowns (a 1-yard run, a 5-yard catch and a

35-yard punt return). But the Lions had to stave off the feisty Ugly Eagles, who bounced back from a 21-7 halftime deficit to tie the game on Makhi Gervais’ 82-yard catch and run, with 1:41 left in regulation. Bartley, however, continued to shine in overtime, rushing the ball three of four plays in the Lions’ only post-regulation series, launching himself one yard over the top of the offensive line on his third overtime carry, pushing the Lions ahead 28-21.

“You have to step up in some situations, but I really thank my line,” Bartley said. “They got me some open holes, and I just hit them.” Bartley jumpstarted the Lions with a 35-yard punt return midway through the first quarter to put the Lions up 7-0. But Gervais, who finished with 44 carries for 194 yards, answered with a 28-yard run about three minutes later, evening the score for Clayton Valley. Brenden Bell’s 1-yard run early in the

second put the Lions up 14-7, and Bartley’s toe-tap 5-yard catch in the end zone, right before halftime, increased the lead to 21-7. “It was a crazy win; a great win for us,” said Liberty quarterback Jay Butterfield, who finished 16 for 31, with 128 yards and a touchdown. “We came out and battled, and came out with the W.” Clayton Valley’s Kern had a nice game in the loss, completing nine of 15 passes see Liberty page 24

Heritage girls water polo hopes to net another title by Mason Bert Correspondent

The Heritage girls’ water polo team hopes to standout in the Bay Valley Athletic League (BVAL) for the third consecutive year. Surpassing new feats, the squad has started the season as reigning North Coast Section Division I champions for the first time. With a fast, athletic team, the Patriots hope to continue their success while fending off other well-rounded league opponents. “This season, we are much younger,” coach Jeff Lapum said. “Our goals are very similar to last season. We want to compete well throughout the season and carry this on into the playoffs.” With eight returning players who gained a lot of experience last season during the long playoff run, the Patriots will be led by team captains Emma Lapum, Ella Simone and Kayla Longoria, with Lapum being the only senior on the squad this year. Junior Ella Simone and Lapum were last year’s leading scorers, with junior Kayla Longoria and junior goalie Hannah Bon-

Those returning players will be joined by sophomores Lily Finazzo and Eisha Pasamonte and freshmen Jordyn Davies, Elly Longoria and Amanda Muse. Heritage had a 19-8 record last sea-

son, winning all eight games against league opponents. Finally getting over the hump in the playoffs last season, the girls overcame adversity and maintained focus, taking it a game at a time, which eventually led them to the biggest accomplishment in

the history of the program: a North Coast Section title. The playoffs occurred during northern California fires last year, which caused many delays and a pause of the season. Through it all, the leadership of Maddie Bursch, Katelyn Rodrigue and Katie Schaffer (now graduated) and fellow team leaders Emma Lapum and Ella Simone held the team together to deliver the title. Approaching the 2019-20 season, the Patriots are fired up and ready to repeat success. Eyeing other league opponents, Liberty looks to stand in the way of the Patriot squad this year, making a deep run itself into the North Caost Section playoffs last year when they got to the semifinal game, where they ran into Heritage, losing to the Patriots 17-10. “I think Liberty will be very tough this year,” Lapum said. “They are very skilled and well coached. I believe our other programs in the BVAL are making great strides to improve, but Liberty will be our main competition. For us to repeat as champions, we must find a way to get past Liberty.”

Brentwood 10-year-old traveling to Italy for go-kart race by Patrick Gordon Correspondent

In many ways, Casey Moyer is just like other fifth-graders. The Garin Elementary student enjoys hanging out with friends, playing with his pets, and he’s learning to play the saxophone. However, unlike his peers, he also races go-karts at speeds upwards of 60 mph, and will travel to Italy to race against some of the best in the world next month. Casey’s go-karting journey began at age 5, when he arrived home from school to find that his father, Chris, had bought him a gokart off eBay. “I was just coming home from an afterschool program,” he said. “Then I see a gokart in my driveway. I had no clue, but apparently Dad bought me a go-kart.” It didn’t have a motor in it yet, and Casey didn’t know how to drive it, so his dad tied a rope to the front and pulled the kart behind him, while Casey practiced steering. “I would sit in the cart and steer,” Casey recalled. “My dad had set up cones, and he would just pull me, and I would steer.” “That was about one month before [Chris] had a hip replacement,” said Casey’s mother, Elizabeth Mastroianni. “If that’s not dedication, I don’t know what is.” The first time Casey turned on the engine, the noise scared him. “I cried because it was so loud and vibrating,” he said. Fast forward to five years later, and Casey has won several races in Sonoma,

Anthony White finished second, and Alex Rantala finished third. competed in places like Reno and Las Vegas, and punched his ticket to the ROK Superfinal, which will be held Oct. 7-12 in Lonato del Garda, Italy. Moyer’s best race was in May, when he

won the third round of the ROK Sonoma series. He beat his nearest competitor by four seconds in what he says is his favorite moment on the track. For Casey and his family, go-kart rac-

ing is a team effort. He says his mother, Elizabeth Mastroianni, makes sure he’s fed and ready to race. His father is his mechanic. His twin sister, Jenna, is his biggest fan. Greg Bell, owner of Leading Edge Sports, helps supply and maintain the engines and assists Chris Moyer on the mechanical side. He selected Moyer to participate in the ROK Superfinal in Italy and has helped Casey fine-tune his technique and improve through advanced technology. Casey’s current goal is to improve his drafting and defending after the pass. With the help of a Mychron sensor, Bell can see when Casey is accelerating or braking, and help him improve in these areas to maximize his speed. This year, Moyer competes in the Mini ROK class, which includes drivers between the ages of 8 and 12 years old. His top speed, as measured by the Mychron device, was 60.9 mph at Sonoma. Casey wants to continue racing and eventually race in the Formula One series. His favorite driver is Kevin Magnussen, a Danish driver for the Haas F1 team. “Their cars are really fast,” he said. “It gets intense and really technical, and it looks like a really fun job.” Moyer’s next race will be ROK Sonoma Round 7, which will be held Sept. 14-15. After competing in the ROK Superfinal in Italy Oct. 7-12, he’ll race at ROK the Rio in Las Vegas from Oct. 29 to Nov. 2. For more information about the ROK racing series, visit www.rokcupusa.com.

Cal High football team knocks off Freedom then Cal went four-in-out, but Freedom’s offense didn’t move beyond the Grizzlies’ 41-yard line with 57 seconds left, allowing Cal to run out the clock. “We thought we had a nice screen play for the fourth and long, and it just didn’t work out,” said Byrne of Freedom’s final fourth-down play. “But I think we’ll be back next week.” Despite the loss, Cotter said he’s impressed with the team’s progress and fight. Just when it looked like Cal would run away with an easy victory — up 23 points, one minute into the second quarter — Roy Lee, Jr.’s 76-yard kickoff return cut Freedom’s deficit to 23-7, with 11 minutes left in the second quarter. Jordan Lee’s 1-yard touchdown midway through the second quarter cut the Falcons’ deficit to 23-14. After the two teams traded touchdowns, giving Cal a 30-21 halftime lead, Jordan Lee’s 3-yard score on Freedom’s first third-quarter possession pulled Freedom to within 30-28, with nine minutes left in the quarter. Byrne’s aforementioned touchdown, with about six minutes left, gave Freedom a short-lived, four-point advantage — its first lead all season. Freedom will look for its first win of the season on the road against Antelope on Sept. 13 at 7:15 p.m. To view a video and a slideshow, visit www.thepress.net/multimedia

Freedom High School’s Roy Lee turns the corner during the Falcons’ 44-40 loss to California last week. Freedom is 0-3 this season, but appears to be improving each week. including with touchdown runs of 93, 74 and 54 yards. Freedom battled back from a 23-0 deficit early in the second quarter, to briefly take a 34-30 lead on Byrne’s 1-yard keeper, midway through the third quarter, but Tyler Jarvis’ 11-yard catch on California’s next drive, gave Cal a 37-34 lead it wouldn’t relinquish.

Freedom, however, didn’t go down easy. After Giovanni Phillips’ 93-yard scurry vaulted the Grizzlies to a 44-34 lead early in the fourth, Tyler Lepolo’s 2-yard scoring run capped Freedom’s next drive, pulling the Falcons within 44-40, with 9:21 left in the game. The two teams traded turnovers, and

In a game where Oakley’s Freedom High School and California High’s offenses shined, it was a stout defensive play that ultimately made the difference for the Grizzlies in their wild, 44-40 win on Sept. 6. Trailing by four and driving with just over a minute to play, the Falcons offense stalled on the Grizzlies’ 41-yard line, after a fourth-down screen to Matthew Quesada was sniffed out by a pack of Grizzlies, to lift California to 3-0 this season. The game-deciding defensive display punctuated a back-and-forth contest that saw Freedom erase a 23-point, secondquarter deficit to take the lead midway through the third, before California seized advantage for good, on its ensuing drive. “It was special just watching our kids continue to battle and put us in that conversation in the last moments,” said Freedom head coach Andrew Cotter. “Obviously, it did not work out the way we had intended, but the kids kept fighting and put us in that situation. I am so proud of those kids; proud to be a Falcon tonight.” Freedom quarterback Jake Byrne, who finished with 326 yards passing and running back Jordan Lee, who logged 187 yards on the ground, tried to will the winless Falcons (0-3) to victory, but were upstaged by the consistently potent Grizzlies, who torched Freedom all game,

Colts senior running back Chase Sims racked up 23 carries for 186 yards and five touchdowns, and wide receiver JaMon Taylor and quarterback Shamoun V. DuncanNiusulu also scored for the Colts. Heritage’s lone score came on Hanai Muhammad’s 1-yard run late in the first half to pull the Patriots to within 28-7. “The boys’ effort and heart was here,” said Heritage head coach Don Sanders. “I have to do a better job of getting them ready to play. This one is on me, I think.” Sims and Duncan-Niusulu got the Colts (2-1) rolling with a 2-yard touchdown run and quarterback sneak, to propel James Logan to a 13-0 first-quarter lead that wouldn’t be relinquished. Taylor’s 47-yard catch and Sims’ 5-yard rumble into the end zone, pushed the Colts’ lead to 28-0, midway through the second quarter.

Heritage High School’s Hanai Muhammad moves upfield during the Patriots’ 48-7 loss to James Logan at the Honor Bowl on Sept. 7. “We definitely need some heart,” said senior tight end Trevor Moorman, who did a fine job playing quarterback after entering the game, following an injury to starter Asher Haynes. “We are lacking in some heart; the guys get their heads down. They scored first and we start beating ourselves up. We need to keep a positive mindset throughout the game, and I think we will be OK.” Heritage (0-3) returns to the field at 7 p.m, Sept. 13, against Amador Valley.

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.

In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. 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. 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 Auction.com at 800.280.2832 for information regarding the Trustee’s Sale or visit the Internet Web site address www.Auction.com for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA08000098-19-1. 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.

Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition

to build a pool for this price.” Bravo further explained that Terracon put together these construction documents so other contractors in the market can submit competitive bids for the project. As he went over the estimated costs with the board, Bravo cautioned members not to seek better deals on the products listed therein, as the costs include installation and some contractor markup. During the presentation, some board members had questions about items missing from the bid, such as parking lot improvements, equipment housing, bathrooms and a fence. “Those are substantial costs that weren’t included in the estimate that we know that we are going to have to have,” CSD Director Kevin Graves said. “What I understood the board was looking for

Plan

was a project estimate, not a pool estimate.” Bravo assured the board that more line items could be added to the estimate and presented at the board’s next regular meeting on Sept. 18. He further noted the design of the new pool would fit inside the existing fence line. After the presentation, longtime Discovery Bay resident Bill Helfrick spoke during the public comment period, cautioning against making any decisions without a firm idea of the cost involved. “Again, your Terracon (estimate), like your first study, isn’t getting you the full project costs,” Helfrick said. “You’re back to an estimate.” Alison Watts, who has been an advocate for a new pool since the idea was introduced last year, also spoke, saying the project didn’t have to include pricey

Costa transportation systems to be like,’” said Randell Iwasaki, Contra Costa Transportation Authority executive director. The long-range plan, now in its final form, was crafted and publicly revised over roughly three months — encompassing input from public-opinion research, focus groups, community meetings and telephone town halls. “Top concerns centered on traffic congestion, air quality, a cleaner, safer BART system and the need for other commuter-benefit investments, including alternative modes of transportation to avoid motor vehicle use,” said Tim Haile, Contra Costa Transportation Authority deputy executive director. The 56-page proposal is largely broken up by potential transportation-corridor improvements, as well as countywide fixes and additions. Changes are being considered for the State Route 242, Highway 4, transit and eBART corridor; the I-680, Highway 4, transit and BART corridor; and the I-80, I-580, Richmond-San Rafael Bridge transit and BART corridor, as well as other improvements throughout the county. In East County, the enhancements could include an increased number of eBART trains; Vasco Road and Byron Highway improvements; interchange upgrades along Highway 4 at Balfour Road, Marsh Creek Road, Walnut Boulevard, and Camino Diablo; an access connector between Byron Highway and Vasco Road, south of Camino Diablo, to improve Byron Airport access; and Byron Airport improvements. Regionally, the endeavor also targets revisions to Highway 4 and State Route 242, including operational improvements at the I-680 and Highway 4 interchange;

extras. “I understand that there are concerns for the (handicap access) . . . but there are pools all over like these and they don’t have fancy bathrooms . . . so hopefully there isn’t too much hesitation on that,” Watts said. In July, the CSD Board authorized staff to engage Terracon’s design services in three phases: design development with a project cost estimate, construction documents and agency review and bidding. The town can terminate the contract at any point during the process. Discovery Bay is able to explore the possibility of building a new pool, thanks to a settlement it reached with the Hofmann Land Development Company last year, which resulted in the town being awarded $1.4 million. Once completed, the design bid will

reconfigured interchanges along State Route 242; auxiliary lane additions and ramp improvements between State Route 242 and Bailey Road; and improved access to key destinations, like business districts and BART stations. “We tried to formulate the plan based on corridors, and really address people’s commute,” said Haile. “We know that people are commuting from East County down State Route 4 in the morning. They get to the 680/4 interchange, and it’s just a giant bottleneck of congestion. We honed in on those areas and wanted to make sure there was funding allocated to those critical bottlenecks in the county around State Route 4, around I-680, around I-80 and I-580.” The plan also aims to create seamless connectivity among the county’s various transportation networks of freeways to bike paths, trains to shuttles and the various avenues in between. Just a handful of those changes could involve new shuttle, bus and other transit options in Brentwood and Oakley to serve the Antioch eBART station; increased ferry coverage between Martinez and Antioch; increased express bus service along the State Route 242, Highway 4 and Vasco Road corridor; and dedicated, part-time transit lanes to bypass congestion in that area. It’s believed funds would be poured into other transportation avenues, as well, including local roads — possibly Sand Creek and Deer Valley — improved walking and biking options; safe transportation options for youths, such as reduced-fare transit passes; and enhanced mobility options for seniors, veterans and the disabled. “There is something in here for walking, biking, transit, safer transportation for students,” said Haile, who noted the plan also addresses future infrastructure

give an engineered design and firm cost. If the design’s bid comes in at the expected $1.4 million, and the board votes to approve the expenditure, the town plans to pay $820,400 with monies earned from the Hofmann settlement, and $570,740 with a 10-year loan from the town’s wastewater funds. Earlier this year, the Discovery Bay paid Terracon $32,650 to conduct a geotechnical study to see whether a new pool could be built in place of the existing one. With favorable results obtained from the study, the board chose to move forward in the process of building a new pool, though the project’s future remains uncertain.

for zero-emission vehicles. CCTA officials stress the proposal is vital for the county’s transportation future. “About 80% of Measure J funds have been expended, with all planned major capital-improvement projects completed or soon-to-be — meaning, the transportation authority won’t be able to fund any new major projects without a new plan,” Iwasaki said. All the while, the county’s population (currently 1.144 million) is slated to grow 29% by 2040, and all Contra Costa freeways sit among the Bay Area’s 10 most congested, Iwasaki said. Additionally, the county’s senior population — accounting for 14% of residents — is expected to shoot up to 30% by 2035, which will change demand for alternative modes of transportation. If approved, the plan’s projects would likely need to meet various performance targets, such as reduced traffic, shortened commute times and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. A public oversight committee would also be established to ensure the plan is being carried out as expected. A number of other voter safeguards are also included in the plan. The county and its constituent cities are expected to publicly review the plan during September and October. The CCTA board will then hold a special meeting on Oct. 30 to determine whether the plan should go to the ballot. Then, the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors would be the agency to adopt an ordinance to place it on the ballot. The Brentwood City Council is slated to hear an in-person presentation of the plan at 7 p.m., Sept. 24, inside the council chambers. To view the complete plan, visit www.ccta.net/theplan.
