CSD to revisit meter program by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer The Community Services District (CSD) is looking into whether to ramp up the town’s stalled water metering program – or put on the brakes – in the wake of charges from one homeowners association of billing inequities. Harbor Bay Homeowners Association representative Lou Erickson spoke before the CSD at the Sept. 1 meeting, asking the board to approve a water refund for Harbor Bay residents, claiming they have been billed twice for their water over the past few months – once through the town’s metering program and again on their county tax roll. “We’ve been charged twice for our water and that’s not fair,” said Erickson, who first approached the CSD about the problem in July. CSD President Kevin Graves, a resident of Harbor Bay, recused

himself from the board discussion. Under the provisions of a new statewide water conservation mandate, all residential properties must be operating with water meters by 2024. In Discovery Bay, 1,600 of the town’s roughly 6,000 homes have operational meters, and another 300 must be online by the end of the year to meet government mandates. The remaining 4,200 homes must be on meters by 2024. But while none of the residential units in Harbor Bay have yet been put on meters, the landscaping has, and is charged to the HOA which residents pay for in their monthly fees. It is some residents’ contention that the current amount they pay on their property taxes should be adequate to cover their landscaping costs. Last summer, the board voted 4-1 (Director David Piepho was

Despite ongoing budget cuts, the elimination of school programs and increased class sizes, California’s schools have managed to raise their Academic Performance Index (API) scores again for the eighth year in a row. “It’s certainly good news all around,” said Donald Gill, superintendent of the Antioch Unified School District, which earned a 16 point API increase to 732. “In our district we tripled the growth of the past five years. It puts things on a real positive note.” API is the cornerstone of California’s Public Schools Accountability Act of 1991. It measures the academic performance and growth of schools through a point-based system determined primarily by the results of the California Standards Test, the California High School Exit Exam and graduation

Ally undergoes second double transplant Ally has continued to be supported by her friends, family and a community that has not forgotten. “The community, everyone, has really rallied around Ally, and it’s something that has never stopped,” said Vickee. “We are so grateful for the support. It’s really kept us going.” And now that she’s home, Ally intends to get herself going as soon as possible. And the first order of business? “My boyfriend and I are going to go for a drive,” said Ally. “We’ve talked about it for months and because I’ve been hooked up to an oxygen tank since April, I couldn’t really go anywhere. Every time I would talk to him and say ‘get me out of here,’ he would remind me to stay strong and think of the drive we’re going to take when I’m without the oxygen and have no worries. That day is finally here.” As for the days to follow, the Jenkins family is taking a one-step-at-a-time approach to Ally’s recovery. And yet the difference in Ally is remarkable. “We’re amazed at her strength and the progress she’s made,” said Vickee. “I’m at peace with it all; it’s such a different mind set from last time. We’ve met a lot of people who’ve had to be re-transplanted who are now swimming with the dolphins and running marathons. It just goes to show you that this is reality; not just wishful thinking.” Ally plans to go back to school in January, and hopes to attend homecoming at Freedom High in October. And despite her understandable focus on fun, the grateful teen knows her shot at a second chance has changed her forever. “My faith has grown stronger than ever and I know that I’m meant to do something special with my life, I just don’t know what it is yet,” said Ally. “But I’ve learned a lot. I’ve definitely learned not to sweat the small stuff and I’ve realized how important it is to surround yourself with positive people and let the negative ones go, be thankful for every breath and always tell the people in your life how much you love them.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

To describe the last 12 months of Ally Jenkins’ life as a Year of Miracles might seem an overstatement. But for the Oakley 15-year-old who has undergone not one but two double lung transplants since October of 2009, there’s no other way to describe it. “I realize how lucky I am, knowing that my life has been saved twice,” said Ally. “I’m feeling great and I can breathe better than I ever have. I’m really excited to have my life back.” Ally returned to her Oakley home from UCSF Medical Center this week, just eight days after undergoing her second double lung transplant. According to her mother, Vickee, the difference in Ally’s recovery from the first transplant to the second is like night and day. “We’re just amazed at how different this (transplant) was from last time,” said Vickee. “Last year when she woke up from her transplant, she could walk maybe six steps with a nurse on each side holding her up. But this time she pushed herself off the bed with no one helping her and did four laps around the (hospital) floor. She’s doing really great.” Ally’s journey began in July of 2009, when the Freedom High School freshman was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension, an incurable disease that hinders the flow of blood from the heart to the lungs. A double lung transplant was the only remedy. In August of that year, a donor was found and Ally received her transplant, but it was rough going from the start. “When she came home in November it was just one thing after another,” said Vickee. “She had pneumonia four times and developed a rare bacteria in her lungs that took nearly a year to treat, and she had lots of aspiration (breathing) issues. All the promises of going back to a normal life just never happened.”

Oakley’s Ally Jenkins came home this week after her second double lung transplant. In April, Ally went into chronic rejection and was immediately placed on 24-hour oxygen. When she was finally admitted to the hospital in July she was told she would remain there until a donor was found. Throughout her months of waiting for a second donor,

Supervisors delay cemetery district appointment The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors has delayed filling a vacant seat on the Byron-Brentwood-Knightsen Union Cemetery District Board amid public complaints and charges of nepotism. Discovery Bay resident David Piepho, one of the two candidates who applied for the special-district seat, is married to Supervisor Mary Piepho, who oversees the cemetery district board. The supervisor recused herself from the selec-

tion process and Board of Supervisors Chairman John Gioia took over the review of applications. Gioia’s subsequent recommendation of David Piepho for the cemetery board seat was set as a consent calendar item for the supervisors’ Sept. 14 meeting. But following a letter of complaint from a local resident and a blistering editorial in the Contra Costa Times charging nepotism, Gioia pulled the recommendation and referred it to the Public

Protection subcommittee for review at its meeting of Oct. 18. The subcommittee consists of Gioia and District V Supervisor Federal Glover. The other candidate for the cemetery seat was Brentwood resident John Quinn. At least two other residents, former Knightsen School District Superintendent Vickey Rinehart and Clint Love, owner of Bay Area Cremation and Funeral Services, expressed interest in the seat but missed the 10-day filing period

set by Supervisor Piepho. David Piepho is also a director on the Discovery Bay Community Services District board, and serves on the county’s Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO), which oversees land boundaries and annexation issues. Piepho’s term on the CSD board is expiring this year, and he is not seeking re-election. Appointment to another special district board such as the cemetery district would enable him to retain his LAFCO seat.

Readers solve O’Hara House mystery by Samie Hartley

The O’Hara House, left, as it stands today in Oakley. The home’s owner is this month’s history mystery winner. Below left, the photo on the front of Annie O’Hara’s postcard, sent in 1911, is of her family home, known then as the O’Hara House. Her father, James O’Hara, is recognized as one of the founders of Oakley. Below right, the current O’Hara House has a much different look than the original, built in 1887.

Staff Writer

ou’ve done it again, Press readers. The second history mystery has been solved. In the Sept. 10 issue, we ran the second installment of our historical postcard series and asked you to identify the house in the photo or name the writer “A. O’H.” This month’s prize, a yearlong membership in the Contra Costa County Historical Society, goes to Lola Lucchesi of Oakley, who had little trouble identifying the house – since it’s been hers for 65 years. “It’s not much of a mystery to me,” said Lucchesi, 86. “I’ve lived here for years. I’ve been here longer than the O’Haras.” James O’Hara, the man affectionately remembered as the father of Oakley, grew up in Maine and moved to California when he was 20. In 1887 for a mere $5 per acre, O’Hara bought 800 acres of land east of Antioch. O’Hara divided the land into 130 parcels – the foundation of the town that would become Oakley. The house pictured in the postcard was known to locals as the O’Hara House. O’Hara planted Oakley’s first almond orchard in the 1890s next to his home, and workers resided in nearby cabins. O’Hara and his wife Mary raised four children in that house, including their only daughter, Catherine Anne “Annie” O’Hara, who Lucchesi and historian Carol Jensen speculate is the author of the postcard. Annie O’Hara, born in 1887, was one of Liberty High School’s first graduates. She received her teaching credentials from Stockton Normal School

and went on to teach at Oakley’s Iron House School in 1908 at the age of 21. According to Press reader Velma Gonzalez, Annie went on to teach in the Black Diamond Hills area in 1910, working with Lois Kirkwood. In the postcard message, sent in 1911, Annie said she and Lois would be traveling to Tahoe for 10 days. The message was sent to Carrie Powell of Oakland, whom Press reader Aaron Carpoff identified as his grandmother, a teacher at Pittsburg Grammar School. Carpoff said Annie, Carrie and Lois worked together at the school, so he suggested that “Mattie,” who is also referenced in the message, was also a teacher. According to Julie Lucchesi, Lola’s daughter-in-law, the Lucchesi family purchased the O’Hara House, located in southern Oakley, in 1938. Dionisio and Maria Lucchesi, who came to California from Italy, lived in the house and raised their children there. They added a few rooms and installed a fireplace, but didn’t change the house much. Their son Guido and his bride, Lola, made the O’Hara House their home in 1945. Lola, who was

only 21 at the time, has gone on to make a lifetime of memories at the O’Hara House. It was there that she and her late husband raised four children and welcomed many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Julie said Annie’s younger brother, Elwin “Leo” O’Hara, visited the house over the years to check in on his childhood home. Leo died in 1990. Annie preceded him in death in 1982 at the age of 94. The O’Hara family left a few paintings behind when they moved, and Lola keeps them on display throughout her home. Aside from a fresh coat of paint, a renovated porch and expanded landscaping, Lola said the house is pretty the same as when she first moved in. Although developers have shown interest in the 18-acre property, Julie and Lola aren’t interested in selling. “This house is a piece of Oakley’s history,” Julie said. “But more importantly, this is Lola’s home, and it’s going to stay that way.” Those with additional information about Annie O’Hara or any of the people she mentions in her postcard message, email historian Carol Jensen at historian@ byronhotsprings.com.

You may have received an email recently warning you that buried deep within the Obamacare legislation is a 3.8% sales tax on all real estate transactions that will start in 2013. PLEASE reply back to that person that it’s not true, and don’t forward it to anyone else, either. Here is what is true: There IS a new 3.8% tax on the “unearned” income of high income taxpayers (single-filers making more than $200K and joint-filers making more than $250K). This is being called the “Medicare Tax” because it is meant to shore up Medicare’s shaky finances. It would apply to income from interest, dividends, annuities, royalties, capital gains and rents. (They call this “unearned” income because in general this type of income mostly results from the investment of your money and/or your efforts in the past, not so much your active participation in the activity now.) Don’t forget that the exclusion for up to $250,000 (single-filer)/$500,000 (joint-filer) in gain in a personal residence is still on the

books. This exclusion still applies before the 3.8% tax kicks in. So if you are not a “high income taxpayer” and you had less than $250K (single-filer) or $500K (joint-filer) capital gain on your principal residence, this new 3.8% probably does not apply to you. Where this new tax DOES impact real estate is in terms of some high-income investors that own rental property. If you make more than the $200K/$250K income thresholds, your net rental income may be subject to the new 3.8% tax UNLESS your rental property business IS your main occupation, which makes it “earned income.” (However, there is a new .9% tax on “earned income” for highincome taxpayers, as well.) ***I AM NOT A TAX EXPERT.

Supervisor to host Lions helping Lions water weed meeting County District III Supervisor Mary Piepho is hosting a meeting next week with the California Department of Boating and Waterways and has invited representatives from the office of Congressman Jerry McNerney, Congressman John Garamendi, Sen. Mark DeSaulnier, Sen. Lois Wolk and Assemblymember Joan Buchanan. The meeting will also include representatives of the California Department of Food and Agriculture/Invasive Species, Department of Water Resources, Reclamation District 800, Discovery Bay CSD, the Contra Costa County Agricultural Commissioner and the Delta community to address egeria densa, a local invasive weed, in all areas of the Delta.

The invasive water weed is clogging channels and making a damaging impact on Delta waterways, including the south Delta export pumps operated by the Department of Water Resources. “Although this waterway is under the control of the state, it is with collaboration from federal, state and local representatives that I believe this issue can best be resolved,” said Piepho. “We need to work together and come up with solutions to serve our constituents. The water weed is not a new issue but it is creating significant havoc for boaters, fishermen and others whose livelihood and recreation are built around the Delta. Government at all levels needs to go into action and work to fix this problem.”

Novelist to sign books Author Sarah Sundin will be at Barnes & Noble, 5709 Lone Tree Way in Antioch, on Saturday, Sept. 25 at 2 p.m. to sign copies of “A Memory Between Us” and “A Distant Melody.” The event is free and open to the public. The historical love story “A Memory Between Us” follows the Novak brothers, B-17 bomber pilots with the U.S. Eighth Air Force stationed in England during World War II. After a plane crash, Major Jack Novak finds himself at the army hospital, where he meets

and falls for army nurse Lt. Ruth Doherty. As the war escalates, so does Jack and Ruth’s need for each other. Can they find a way to work together or are they destined to go their separate ways? “A Memory Between Us” is the second of the “Wings of Glory” series. The first book in the series, “A Distant Melody,” is an epic story of love, valor and sacrifice during World War II. For more information, call 925-978-1053.

Big Run For Fun’ds turnout by Samie Hartley Staff Writer It took months of planning, but organizers of the inaugural Brentwood Run For Fun’ds event have proudly deemed the fundraiser a triumph, raising more than $19,000 for local schools. “The event was an amazing success,” said LeAnn Weibert, Run For Fun’ds committee co-chair. “It was overwhelming to see how much support we received from our Brentwood Union School District (BUSD) families and our community members. Everyone had fun, and we had participants running until the event was over.” Held on Sept. 11, the fundraiser was organized by parents’ club members from all 10 BUSD schools. Responding to the extensive budget cuts imposed on the 201011 school year, Weibert and her fellow parents decided to take matters into their own hands and host a walk-a-thon. The result was more than 800 parents, students, teachers, administrators and community members walking together on the shared field between Edna Hill Middle School and Garin Elementary in a united effort to raise money to keep programs such as art and music alive in the classroom. While money is still trickling in, Weibert said each school will receive more than $1,000 and Garin Elementary will receive a $500 bonus for registering the most participants. The event doubled as a fundraiser and a promotion of healthy living. Kids took breaks from the walking course to play games, jump in the bounce house and take part in fun activities such as face painting and hair blinging. Members of the Brentwood Police Department and the East Contra Costa Fire District were also in attendance to show participants cool gadgets and chat with community members while the Brentwood Rotary Club served up hundreds of pancakes to fuel the runners and walkers. BUSD Superintendent Merrill Grant, along with principals from each school, took a seat at the dunk tank to raise additional funds during the event. Grant said the turnout was phenomenal. He was impressed with parents’ clubs’ effort to put together a quality event that supported the schools and encouraged healthy living. Based on the community support, Weibert said the committee of parents would like to host the event again next year. “We have had very positive feedback, and people are already looking to next year. We are grateful for all our sponsors, volunteers, teachers, families and community members who took the time to come out and support our schools and ultimately our children.” Austin Cook contributed to this story.

TUPE hits the ground running Liberty Union High School District kicked off its Tobacco Use Prevention and Education (TUPE) Program by celebrating the National Run@Work Day on Thursday, Sept. 16. Over 40 administrators, faculty, staff and family members walked or ran a one-to-3-mile course to promote healthy lifestyles and set a good example for students in the district. The event was co-sponsored by LUHSD’s Health and Safety Committee, which supported the effort by providing

food and refreshments at The Game on Oak Street. According to Assistant Superintendent of Administrative Services Gene Clare, “We achieved our goal to raise awareness about the importance of daily physical exercise. As educators, this was an opportunity to lead and set a positive example for our students.” The next TUPE activity is open to the community and is scheduled in conjunction with the Bell Game between Freedom and Liberty high schools on Saturday, Nov. 6. Participants will begin

a four-mile walk-run around the track at Freedom High and continue up O’Hara Avenue, Second Street and Oak Street to finish circling the track at Liberty High. The $20 registration fee includes a T-shirt and post-race refreshments, and proceeds will benefit the Freedom and Liberty High School Cross-Country and Track and Field programs.

Lion pride propels Homecoming victory by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Liberty High School’s Homecoming week generated so much school spirit that the Lions willed their varsity team to a victory against the American Eagles. Spirit week helped generate the buzz for last Friday’s big game, but it’s always the rally and the parade before the game that gets the Lions ready to roar. The rally featured performances by the dance team and the cheer squad plus the introduction of the Homecoming Court. The Court included Princes Paul Alarab, Edgar Barraza, Tyler Blank, Kirk Fisher, Will George, Isaiah Ichihara, Quinn Steely, Shawn Vasquez, Tony Webb and Kyle Zimmerman, and Princesses Emily Agudo, Geo Alexander, Jillian Butler, Niya Davis, Brooke Edwards, Zahira Estrada, Elly Green, Haley Hickman, Chantal Lasher and Sam Simpkins. This year’s rally took a more formal and traditional tone, exuding sophistication rather than satire, eliminating the silly skits performed in the past. But despite the program change, Liberty Leadership advisor Summer Rodriguez felt the school spirit was just as charged as it is every year. “This year we wanted to make sure that the focus of Homecoming was based on the spirit of what Homecoming truly is – alumni coming home and honoring Liberty and its traditions,” Rodriguez said. “Thus, we removed the skits, opting for an introduction of the court and what impact they had made on Liberty during their time here. Additionally, we decided to focus on the traditions of Liberty that current students may not be aware of. We did so via a (trivia) game. We wanted the focus to be more on the school and the community and less on funny skits.” Once all the members of the court were introduced, the princesses took on the princes in a Liberty trivia game that featured questions such as “What are the Liberty school colors?” (answer: cardinal and gold) and “Which teacher has been teaching at Liberty the longest?” (answer: Choir Director Sue Stuart). While the court royalty was given “lifelines” such as Phoning a Freshman and Suggestion From a Senior, the princes in their jeweled crowns and the princesses in their sparkling tiaras relied on their fellow royals for support. Ultimately, the princes were able to squeak past the ladies with a 8-7 victory. Classes took turns demonstrating their school spirit during a chanting contest, but as always, the seniors blew the underclassman out of the water with their bellowing roar “2-01-1! Class of 1-1!” During the Homecoming parade through downtown Brentwood prior to the game, the community joined in the charge, projecting good vibes to the varsity Lions by cheering on the class floats and the student and community groups that strutted their school spirit for the crowd. Again the Class of 2011 came out on top with a win for their Toast the Eagles float. But the loudest cheers came during the rally when Webb and Edwards were crowned as Homecoming King and

Despite the overwhelming love from the crowd, both were surprised by their wins. “I didn’t expect this at all,” said Edwards, who serves as Associated Student Body president. “This is really nice. I’m grateful for all the people who voted for me. I’m really surprised.” Webb, a varsity linebacker, was surprised too, assuming fellow football player and Homecoming Prince Shawn Vasquez would take the crown. But moments after taking over the role as king, Webb settled into his regal duties and offered a prediction about the evening’s big game. “Oh, we’re definitely going to win. I’d say it’ll be 100 to 0 easily.” Webb’s prediction wasn’t entirely accurate, but with a final score of 22-16, the Lions did, in the end, toast the Eagles. For coverage of the game, turn to page 1B.

Choose to Re-use in Antioch The City of Antioch is partnering with Allied Waste to encourage residents and businesses to Choose to Re-use in the month of October. Events planned throughout the month include a citywide yard sale for donations to local nonprofits, a Re-use Roundup, several re-use art activities, and a costume exchange. According to Environmental Resource Coordinator Julie Haas-Wajdowicz, “Reusing goods or buying used items not only cuts down on the amount of material that is land-filled, but reduces greenhouse gas emissions and saves money.” The citywide yard sale, scheduled for Oct. 9-10, is a good way to reduce, re-use and recycle materials while putting extra cash in your pocket. Antioch residents can register to participate by logging on to www.antiochyardsales.com. Those without Internet access can register by calling 925-671-5853. Treasure hunters can find out who’s holding a yard sale and map their course at www.antiochyardsales. com. Computers are available at the Antioch Public Library. You can also access the Internet and print a map for a small fee at T’s Internet Café, 1653 A St. The Re-use Roundup will be collecting gently used items on Oct. 16 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Somersville Town Centre (along Fairview Drive). Volunteers will unload your donations and direct them to the organization that needs them the most. Acceptable items include books, craft supplies, bedding, small household electronics, clothing and small furniture. A complete list of acceptable items is

Community deals with weak CornFest by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

Brentwood Chamber of Commerce CEO Harry York had bad news for the nonprofit organizations that helped put on the city’s biggest annual party this year. “There is nothing to share with our partners,” York said in a meeting held in the Chamber offices on Tuesday. “I’ve been sick about this since the CornFest ended.” But the assembled volunteers, after digesting the fact that the usual bounty of charitable donations generated by the event would not be forthcoming this year quickly rebounded and began thinking of ways to help those impacted the most. York began the meeting going over the financial facts of the matter listed on the whiteboard behind him. The numbers showed that while expenses remained nearly the same as last year – about $400,000 – income had fallen almost $130,000. There was enough to pay the event’s bills, but nothing more. “I don’t think any of us saw this coming,” York told the representatives of some of the 31 nonprofits that worked the event. The festival last year contributed more than $65,000 to the local charities, which provide most of the manpower for the annual July festival. “The biggest hole in all of this is in the Chamber budget,” York said. “I learned a lesson in all of this: Live by the festival – die by the festival.”

Although the crowds were big at times, this year’s CornFest revenue was off sharply, leaving no money for the non-profits that helped put it on. The cause of the downturn wasn’t known. Income was off across the board. Attendance fees were off $33,000, and food, vendor booth rentals and beer sales all showed similar declines. The event’s new location, marketing strategy, the weak economy and the fact that brick-and-mortar establishments were inside the festival for the first time might all have played a role. “It was the perfect storm of bad scenarios,” said Chamber Director Dirk Zei-

gler. “Non-profits need as much as they can get right now, and now we have to tell you this (bad news).” But the mood in the room began to shift when Jeff Schults, representing the Brentwood Relay For Life, pointed out that things were worse for some than others. “Is it a bad thing that not as many scholarships will be available for kids? Yes, it is,” he said. “But groups like Rotary, Kiwanis and Relay For Life, they’ll continue.

But some of the other organizations depend on this income to keep their doors open.” Others in the room began floating ideas about how to help the smaller charities that could suffer the most from the lost income, ideas ranging from hosting a giant, multiorganizational spaghetti feed to passing the hat at bigger groups’ weekly meetings. York agreed to direct a Chamber committee to scour the list of nonprofits for those that might be critically impacted, and the mood became one of determination to help everyone overcome the situation. As for next year’s CornFest, York said changes were already being considered. Moving the location to one less expensive to operate in (the downtown area might still be a construction zone) and marketing the event more to locals are among ideas being discussed. Most of all, he said, he wanted the Chamber’s CornFest partners to know their work is appreciated. “I want to give a great big thank you to all the nonprofits that busted their butts,” he said. “We need the nonprofits, and we’re working to find a way to bring those (donation) numbers back up to where they were.” The meeting adjourned in a remarkably upbeat mood, all things considered, probably due to a fact neatly summed up by York as people left, talking about what they could do for the groups hurt the most. “The service groups,” he said, “are still looking at service and how they can help.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Schools add another piece to puzzle by Walter Ruehlig Vice President, A.U.S.D. Board of Trustees As Rome wasn’t built in a day, the Antioch school system surely hasn’t taken on a new face overnight. In my six years on the board I have seen, brick by brick, things incrementally take a new look. We need UEST remember that large COMMENT institutions take five to seven years for cultural landscape transformation. That has been no different in Antioch. Firstly, the district navigated off the county fiscal watch list and hitched itself to building a healthy reserve and triple A bond rating. Though we are now under siege, our balance sheet survived three years of devastating state budget cutbacks and a loss of three thousand plus student enrollment precisely because we acted soberly and conservatively. Secondly, we have not run from the challenges of societal permissiveness, transient populations, latch-key homes, stressed

G

single parenting and an overnight shifting to an urban demographic. We have instituted teacher diversity and behavior training, the nationally awarded Youth Intervention Network, Character Counts and Challenge Day programs, an innovative two-principal model at Deer Valley High, contract-based suspensions, and uniforms. Obviously, the battle for a safe and conducive learning climate is an ongoing constant. Thirdly, we put before the voters a bond measure and let democracy speak. By a resounding 64 percent, the citizens voted for health and safety renovation of our older schools, some going into their sixth decade. Improvements in parking lot safety, ADA access, code-approved playground equipment, fencing, roofs, modern heating and air, and natural light mean we have extended the life of these schools, improved comfort and safety, and helped better level the playing fields between the newer and older Antioch facilities. Fourthly, we ran with the torch of smaller learning communities anchored on career-based education. Rigor, relevance and relationship banner the success of our

Solving the education problem is not a matter of money; it is a matter of priorities. We didn’t need big beautiful buildings with swimming pools, lighted fields and large theaters when I was in high school. We had some portable classrooms and shared a football field with Hayward High School for night games. Teachers were underpaid; their benefits were average. They taught because

One piece, though, kept nagging us: while we were increasing test scores on average of two points a year, which is better than a kick in the rump, the progress was too slow for us. With this week’s release of the API results, the last piece of the puzzle takes dramatic shape. In one fell stroke Antioch’s 16-point advance virtually matched its combined growth of the last 10 years. Strikingly, five schools topped the magic 800 marker. Dozier-Libbey led the pack at 826, joined by Grant, Lone Tree, Muir and Orchard Park in that rarified atmosphere. A bunch of other schools came close. Delta Performing Arts earned the distinction of most improved, boasting a staggering 78point increase. Kudos, then, to the community at large: students, parents, teachers, principals, administrators, bus drivers, cafeteria workers,

TO THE

they wanted to teach children. If you want to understand what the problems are you need to go deeper than taxpayers and money. Teachers’ unions give tens of millions to political causes to further the benefits of teachers, not children. Schools are not the only ones faced with IOUs from the state – my son just got his state refund last week. The state has no money and we are the laughingstock of the rest of the country. Consider the cost of illegal immigration, the extra burden and cost that puts on teachers and schools. Special Ed and ROP are necessary programs. I’m not too interested in the Poetry Out Loud program, clubs or all the other extracurricular activities that constitute what you consider the best education possible. There is no end to the voracious appetite of schools. If there isn’t enough money for classroom education, perhaps you shouldn’t have voted for the bullet train, and state-sponsored stem cell research. Californians recently had a sales-tax increase and an increase in car registrations. When do you think this will stop? The solution is simple: if your representative voted with the majority and you are happy with the state the state/country is in, keep sending him/her to Sacramento/Washington, D.C. If your representative voted with the majority and you don’t like the state the state/country is in, don’t send them back. Many people are home-schooling children because they don’t like the curriculum and think they can do better. They don’t have the after-school activities and programs, sports fields, pools and theaters, but their children are educated and they don’t seem to be suffering from the lack. We are fund-

campus security, custodians, crossing guards and secretaries. To anyone and everyone who comes into contact with our kids, thank you. You played a part as an everyday hero. Of course, we have miles and miles to go before we sleep. Our scores are now at 732. Livermore, though, is at 815 and Orinda at 850. We want to run with the wolves through another year of double-digit growth, then another and another. People are already starting to move here because we are a district of choice and engaged education. We want families to move here as well for excelling test scores. I was fortunate to grow up in Great Neck, Long Island. At the time it was one of the top 10 districts nationwide. People used to ring the bell of our handsome but modest Tudor home and leave their number to call if we ever decided to move. That’s because it was that hard and that desirable to get into that community and school system. My prayer for Antioch, and I hope its prayer for itself, is that it becomes such a place of destination. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

ing our schools at twice the per-day cost in private education. Education Department figures show that the average tuition for all private schools, elementary and secondary, is $3,116, less than half of the cost per pupil in the average public school, $6,857. In California, the average per-student, per-year figure for California is $9,266. Check your priorities. Los Angeles just opened a new high school that cost the taxpayers the eye-popping price tag of $578 million. It is the nation’s most expensive public school ever, and what is the dropout rate in L.A.? No, I won’t be supporting the same old candidates that voted us into this situation, nor will I be supporting anything that has a fiscal impact on the people of California.

No more school bonds Editor: I can understand why Mr. Holmes is seeking votes at the ballot box, since he is president of the Liberty Education Association. Nevertheless, I think he has an over-amount of chutzpah in view of the fact that we are all being forced to cut corners on spending. When I bought my house in Brentwood 12 years ago (and its mortgage will outlive me!), I did not realize that I would be paying so much property tax on school bonds, four of which were voted on long before I moved here. One Liberty bond dates back to 1988. As a senior struggling to pay just ordinary living expenses, including medical ones and the theft from all senior citizens’ Social Security for Medicare, I definitely cannot justify voting yes on another school bond for any purpose. When I was a pupil in schools in Syra-

cuse, N.Y. in the ’30s and ’40s, there were no refinements as in the schools of today. World War II was foremost in most everyone’s minds and too many of the young men who should have been furthering their educations went off to the military instead. We had school bands and music programs as well as art classes, but they were part of the curriculum, as were the baseball and football sports. It must have been that educators knew how to manage costs wisely for parents did not have to underwrite additional expenses for those. Has it occurred to President Holmes that a major reason for our overcrowded classrooms might be due to the influx of immigrants during the past decades? A large percentage of those, especially the children of illegal aliens, do not pay property taxes and likely do not pay income taxes, either. But if they were legally able to vote, I am sure they would vote yes on those school bonds Mr. Holmes is endorsing. Count me out, though. I have a dentist to pay when I can scrounge up his annually increased fees! Beth Pforr Brentwood

Vote for change in DBPOA Editor: My husband and I have lived in DB for 11 years. In a nutshell, I enlisted the DBPOA to help me rid our neighborhood of unregistered, broken-down vehicles, clean up junkyard homes, etc. The DBPOA was reluctant to help me (and essentially refused to help me). see Letters page 20A

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Gasoline Prices With the first day of fall – September 22nd – officially behind us it’s safe to say much more than the color on the leaves will be changing this season. Announced earlier in September, and set to take effect October 4th, the Federal Housing Administration is raising the premiums it charges for insuring new home mortgages. Let’s travel down this road together; first I’ll give you the background, and then explain what it really means for new borrowers. In 2005 $90 billion dollars, or 2.84%, of the nation’s total residential loan volume was originated using an FHA insured mortgage. Compare that to $440 billion, or 28.21%, of the nation’s total 2009 residential mortgage loans and you can begin to understand why the Federal Housing Administration is running low on funds. To be able to continue to insure new residential mortgages “without disruption to the housing market” according to David Sterns, Assistant Secretary for Housing, FHA is raising the fees it charges new borrowers to insure their mortgages. Starting October 4th FHA’s initial charge for insuring your loan will fall from 2.25% of the loan amount to 1% of the loan amount, but the monthly premiums over the life of the loan will rise from 0.55% of the initial loan amount to 0.90% of the initial loan amount. Using

an initial loan amount of $200,000 as an example, the new initial FHA insurance fee, paid upfront as part of your closing costs, will be $2,000 instead of $4,500, but the new FHA insurance portion of your monthly loan payment will rise from $91.67 to $150.00. In other words, you’ll pay less upfront, but more in the long run. This change is like the price of oil; it should just slightly affect you. Gas prices go up and down, but does that really mean you aren’t going to fill up your tank? You might take a shorter route, or travel a little less, but are you really going to remove yourself all together from the highway? The increase may lower the size of mortgage you qualify for, since the higher monthly payment will increase your debt-to-income ratio, but it won’t take you out of the housing market all together. As with your car’s mechanic, make sure to check the health of your pre-approval with your lender (or call me for a second opinion). The last thing you want if for your offer to be accepted…only to find your financing tank is on empty. 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

Letters from page 18A In a strange turn of events after participating in the CC Times blog about RVs parked in front of homes in Antioch, I was contacted by Arne Simonson, who then put me in touch with David Piepho. David contacted the county on my behalf. The cars were towed and the homeowners were asked to clean up their properties. David continued to stay in touch with me for many years to see how things were progressing. Many thanks to David for his kindness, understanding and perseverance in getting my issues resolved! The county is there to help. They do not practice selective reinforcement. They do not bully, they are very patient in getting the homeowner to clean up their act. I for one will not continue to pay the current board $25 a year – not even 25 cents a year – if they prevail. We need change. We need a board that can rally homeowners to work together in inspiring people to do the right thing, and to help them do the right thing. And the county is there for tough situations. Please, vote for change. Teri Herman Discovery Bay

Pernicious partiers Editor: When does a sense of entitlement go too far? My wife and I have owned a home in Discovery Bay for over 12 years. Several houses down the street from us is one that is used primarily by the son of the owners as a weekend hangout. Over the past year and a half the number of out-of-control parties on the back deck of this home have increased both in number and volume and have reached the point where something needs to be done. As an example, this past weekend the noise, including loud talking punctuated by the use of the F word as a prerequisite to every exclamation, screaming girls and loud music, extended into the wee hours of the morning. The sheriff was called twice, and each time after the patrol car left, the party resumed unabated. Sunday morning we saw that many of the cars of the partygoers that were illegally parked had been ticketed, but this hardly solved the problem. Over the past few months various neighbors have spoken to the young man who holds these parties, and letters from neighbors have been sent to him as well. He is always polite and apologizes, but nothing changes. In our neighborhood we have one person who works weekends and needs to be up early in the morning to drive to her job. Another neighbor is recovering from a serious medical problem and finds it impossible to sleep with all of this noise. In July a party that seemed to have ended at 2 a.m. resumed at 4 a.m. when a number of young women began screaming at the top of their lungs and diving into the water off the dock behind the house. All of us who live on the water are aware of the fact that noises that travel across the water can be heard over a long distance. My guess is that these parties are audible at least two bays away from ours, and it is not unusual to hear people across the bay yelling over at the partygoers, who simply ignore those complaints. I heard a real estate expert on the radio the other day say that any unusual extenuat-

ing circumstances that have a negative impact on the livability of a home must be disclosed when it is listed for sale. This included homes or businesses that had been identified as nuisances because of loud or uncontrolled parties to which the authorities had been called for the purpose of abatement. Although none of the houses in the immediate area are for sale this could certainly have a negative impact on a potential sale. Above and beyond that, however, is an arrogant attitude of entitlement that continues to be flaunted with apparent immunity. Is there a solution? Chuck Hunter Discovery Bay

Done with dereliction Editor: As Bob Munion wrote in the Sept. 10 edition of the Press, a referendum is desperately needed to let our state legislators know we are finished with their fooling around and we are serious about their getting down to the business of state business and leaving their personal agendas home. I am with you, Bob. Where do we go to sign up to get this referendum on the next ballot? I was once a well-paid executive assistant and have some very good office skills that we can use to draft the referendum in proper form and make the calls we need to make to get the proper procedures, etc. I will even stand in the heat, rain or whatever to get the signatures of voters if that is what is needed. Let’s get this agenda on the road or even better, let’s roll. VeraLee Lillis Oakley

With heartfelt gratitude Editor: Believing that it’s never too late to say “thank you,” it is with deepest sentiment that heartfelt gratitude goes out to those who touched and continue to touch our lives since our family tragedy early in August. First and foremost, we wish to extend a huge thank you to the Brentwood Police Department for its quick, courteous and sensitive handling of the situation. We deepen that with gratitude for police chaplains Joel Bryant (pastor of The East Bay Pentecostals) and Ed Spano (deacon at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church). Their desire to stay with us and comfort us for as long as we needed meant more than words can express. They continue to service us in our needs. We also wish to extend a huge thank you to the staff at Loma Vista Elementary (including Sunshine) and WeeCare Preschool (Pastor Mike Lange) for their sensitivity and generosity toward meeting the needs of the children. Without them, it would have been extremely difficult for the children to adjust normally. Finally, we cannot begin to thank all the neighbors who came to our needs immediately. Their willingness to tend to the house, prepare a banquet of sorts for the memorial service and continue to see that we are never left alone, that they are there for us at our beck and call, is priceless. Without doubt, this neighborhood is an “All-American Neighborhood” and with honors. Please accept a most sincere thank-you to all and may God bless! The Kernan family Brentwood

Joining hands in the name of peace by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

People of a multitude of faiths gathered last weekend at St. Ignatius of Antioch Church to heighten awareness of a common cause – peace. The International Day of Peace, a celebration of interfaith relations and the common good, attracted about 400 people, including those of less familiar religions such as Islam, Sufi and Seventh Day Adventist, who shared celebrations of peace from their traditions. An information tent was set up outside the church, inviting attendees to browse the Qur’an or the Book of Mormon, among other scriptures. A total of 14 interfaith groups participated in the event. Fr. Tom Bonacci, founder of the Interfaith Peace Project, said that Organizer Walter Ruehlig said that next year, even more could be included. “I’ve felt greater fellowship with all these different faiths and traditions through their music,” said Phil Mastrolia, a member of the Antioch second ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. “All of us are people of faith and we all want peace. We may understand the universe a little differently, but we all want peace and harmony. It was nice to get to know each other a little better.” Ruehlig said he was impressed by how the event went, noting that it exceeded his expectations. An interfaith candle lighting ceremony was held Saturday night, as well as a collective meditation and prayer session that started at 8:30 p.m. The various names of God were recited for the first 15 minutes of every hour. Ruehlig, in his first year of organizing the Day of Peace, said that when he

was getting ready to leave, around 12:30 a.m., there were still about 100 people deep in meditation and prayer: “I’m really thrilled. It was a lot of hard work, but it was worth every moment of it.” While Antioch’s fourth International Day of Peace, organized by Contra Costa Interfaith Council and the Interfaith Peace Project, was held over the weekend, the official United Nations Peace Day is celebrated on Sept. 21. Bonacci, said that Antioch’s celebration was also a way to raise awareness of that day, which was set in place in 2002. “The first year, there was a small committed group of about five of us that took the initiative to set up some displays in the church,” Bonacci said. “We’ve gone from maybe two or three participants to making it an interfaith event in East County.” On Sunday, a 12-foot-tall peace pole representing the diversity of the event

was planted outside the church. The pole bore the inscription, written in several languages, “May peace prevail on Earth.” Attendees gathered around the pole in a circle as guitarist Bill Wentz and singer Sierra Lynne led the group in song. The peace pole was blessed by members of the DiMaggio and Villicana families, who performed a Pomo Native American ritual, asking the holy spirit to reside within the pole. Ruehlig said it was great for Antioch to erect a peace pole, one of the few of its kind in Contra Costa County. “It means a good change,” Noreen DiMaggio said of the event’s meaning. “It’s like a mandala. It represents different colors of life, all coming together in one place.” To view The Press’ video of Antioch’s International Day of Peace, visit www. thepress.com.

Dr. John Marsh slain John Marsh (June 6, 1799-Sept. 24, 1856) A leading citizen and first settler of Brentwood was murdered today en route to Martinez. Dr. John Marsh was ambushed just outside of Pacheco by bandits as he drove his buggy to the ferry in Martinez to embark for San Francisco. In his possession was $50,000 in gold, believed to be the motivation for the killing. Marsh’s son, Charles, has vowed to bring the assailants to justice. Marsh is survived by his wife, Abby; son, Charles; and baby daughter, Alice. Marsh, a native of Massachusetts, Harvard graduate and medical man, was urged to be his party’s candidate for governor at the next general election. His newly constructed stone house, the first of its kind in California, was inspired by Hawthorne’s “House of Seven Gables.” Marsh and Abbey were to move from their adobe into the structure in a few short weeks – a truly fitting mansion for Marsh’s political ambitions. Marsh first moved to the area in 1838, when he purchased Rancho Los Meganos for $500 from San Francisco Alcalde, Jose Noriega. Locally, Marsh is known for his larger-than-life personality, introduction of dry wheat farming into the Central Valley, vast cattle herd, viniculture and orchards. His industry provided employment to the Native Americans released

MARSH from the San Jose Mission at secularization. His letter-writing campaign back to the “States” is credited with bringing thousands of immigrants to California, starting with the Bidwell-Bartleson Party. Marsh’s Polpones ranch hands found the half-starved immigrants and brought them safety to Marsh’s adobe. – Contributed by Carol Jensen

PoolCarlos offers family-friendly fun by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Even if Carlos Moscoso didn’t believe in signs, he admits this one would have been hard to miss. “I was sitting in my truck with my wife and dog eating lunch in the parking lot of John Muir (Medical Center) when we saw this huge flock of seagulls, thousands of them, fly over the top of the building next door,” said Moscoso. “My wife looked at me and said that it had to be a sign, and I believed her.” The sign turned out to be an empty storefront in Brentwood’s Vic Stewart’s Plaza, and eight months later Moscoso’s metaphoric sign turned into a material one touting the city’s first alcohol-free, familyfriendly billiard hall. PoolCarlos is an upscale, modern pool salon boasting all the modern amenities of billiards – including five tournament-size Olhausen pool tables, two 42-inch plasma flat-screen TVs, an Internet jukebox – but none of the Minnesota Fats smoke-filled, alcohol-laced ambiance typically associated with the game. “This is the only place to play (pool) for just entertainment,” said Moscoso, a former Toyota salesman. “There’s no alcohol, no

It’s just a place to come and play pool and socialize. I believed there was a need and an interest in a place like this so I decided to go for it.” And so far the gamble has paid off. A lifelong enthusiast of the game, Moscoso opened the hall in June and has already begun to establish a steady stream of regular customers.

“I have the seniors who come in the mornings and play for a few hours, and then kids that come after school, and families who come in the evenings,” said Moscoso. “I just have so many people that are so happy to be here. They come for the love of the game.” On a late Friday afternoon, Matin Sherizi and Tim Dorricott are at Moscoso’s,

racking up the balls for a pocket game of pool. The local residents say they come to the PoolCarlos to relax and engage in a little friendly competition. “This is a nice, clean place where you can bring your wife or girlfriend and not have to deal with a bunch of drunk people,” said Sherizi, 30. “It’s just a good place to be.” “I live in Oakley and it’s close to home and not a bar,” said Dorricott, 18. “I can just come here and play and hang out.” But PoolCarlos offers more than a place for teens to congregate. Moscoso’s place also hosts birthday parties, corporate events and special occasions, along with programs for youth groups and teams or leagues. And for the uninitiated, lessons are also available. For the moment, Moscoso offers bagged snacks and drinks for sale at PoolCarlos, but as the business grows, he said, so will the menu: “Sure, I plan to bring other (food) items in eventually. We’ll see how it goes. Right now I’m just taking it slow, since I’m the only one here. I’m tired, but I’m having a great time. It’s a fun place to be.” PoolCarlos, 70 Eagle Rock Ave., Suite C in Brentwood, is open Tuesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. For additional information, call 925-308-4503.

Brentwood police seek suspicious man by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer Police on Wednesday were investigating the third recent incident of a suspicious man lurking in the vicinity of children in Brentwood. According to a press release issued by the Brentwood Police Department on Wednesday, a parent notified a school district employee around 7:45 a.m. that a man similar to the description in two earlier incidents was standing near the bike rack on the east side of the Marsh Creek Elementary School campus, located on Grant Street. The man was described as an adult male between the ages of 50 and 55, 5 feet 5 inches tall, with a thin build and black mustache (thin and cleanly groomed), wearing sunglasses, a tan-colored cowboy hat and a black puffy jacket. The description is similar to previous incidents occurring over the last two weekends at the Sunset Athletic Complex.

But now, faced with possible imbalances, the CSD needs to decide whether to move ahead and install the residential meters in Harbor Bay – and subsequently similar HOAs – or wait until the state-mandated deadline of 2024. “Erickson’s contention is that they’re being double-charged because their landscaping

API from page 1A rates among students. An API score of 800 or better (out of 1,000) means that a school is meeting its academic requirements. Forty-six percent of California’s schools hit the state target goal of 800 this year, reflecting an overall increase of 13 points to 767. The achievement gap among racial and ethnic groups was narrowed slightly. The average score for African-Americans was 685, Latinos 715, Asians 889 and whites 838. East County’s API scores rose with the rest of the state this year. Knightsen and Brentwood districts showed the highest gains at 19 and 31 points, respectively. Merrill Grant, Brentwood Union School District superintendent, expressed pride in the strides his schools have made, but added that the district’s success is more than the sum of its parts. “We definitely feel like we are on a nice (academic) track, and I think our scores are great news,” said Grant. “But our test scores are just one indicator of how well a district is doing. “It’s not just about testing. We’ve spent a lot of time on other things like music, working on the social skills of our children and making sure we’re not just about improving test scores, but working toward the overall rounding of the student. And I think our teachers and our board have worked hard toward that goal.” Positive growth continued in the Liberty Union High School District (LUHSD), where scores jumped 12 points this year to

On Tuesday, when the employee made eye contact with the subject, he walked over to a vehicle, described as a 1980s-model single cab Toyota pickup truck with a white camper shell and an American flag sticker on the left side of the rear window. The subject sat there for 30 minutes, at which time the employee walked toward the truck to ask if the man needed assistance. As the employee approached, the man drove away heading north on Adams Lane. The subject then turned eastbound on Grant Street toward Brentwood Boulevard. The employee spotted the truck a second time around noon, traveling westbound on Grant Street toward O’Hara Avenue. The truck was also spotted on Adams Lane headed toward O’Hara Avenue around 1 p.m. The employee tried to take a photo of the truck’s license plate with his cell phone but was unable to capture the plates. Police said the school district employee had never seen the subject before, nor was

he aware of any previous notifications to the school district employees regarding the two other documented encounters with young juveniles and the subject matching this description. The employee reviewed a number of sex offender photos in both Contra Costa and San Joaquin counties, but was unable to identify anyone matching the description of the subject. Police are still investigating the prior reports in which a man with a similar description approached children at the Sunset Athletic Complex. The first incident occurred on Sept. 11 at approximately 9 a.m. and involved a 12-year-old girl who was waiting to play in a soccer game. She was approached by a man she did not know, who told her that her mother had asked him to walk her to her game. The girl did not go with the man, who was not seen again. He is described as a Hispanic male about 50 years old, 5 feet 5 inches tall, with a thin build, thinning black hair and a black mustache.

He was wearing sunglasses and a large black Adidas jacket. The second incident occurred on Sept. 18 at approximately 10:50 a.m., when two 9to-11-year-old boys entered a public restroom at the complex and were approached by man who asked if their mother was around. The boys ignored the subject and left the restroom. The subject was last seen walking toward Sunset Road and out of sight. An extensive search of the area was undertaken but the subject was not located. The man was described as an unshaven, wrinkly faced Hispanic male 50 to 65 years old, with a thin build and thick silver and black hair worn at neck length. He was wearing a tan baseball hat with white writing, round silver glasses, a white T-shirt, black jacket, blue jeans, a silver watch, white New Balance shoes and was smoking a cigarette. Those with information regarding these cases should call Lt. Doug Silva at 925-8097712.

is being billed (on their tax roll) and metered,” said Discovery Bay General Manager Rick Howard. “And he believes that is an inequity.” At the Sept. 1 meeting, the board voted 4-0 (Graves abstained) to direct staff to conduct an internal audit to discover how many other HOAs in Discovery Bay might be dealing with the shared landscape problem. Howard said that so far, staff has found three additional condominium developments with similar landscaping situations: Marina

Circle, Lido Circle and Sand Bay Isle. Should it turn out that Harbor Bay residents have been overcharged for their water, the question of a refund, said CSD Director Brian Dawson, should be obvious: “I just want to be sure that everyone is being billed fairly and correctly and we will do whatever we have to do to make sure that happens. If it turns out that people were, in fact, doublebilled and it can be proven, then it would be absurd not to give them a refund. But it would be equally absurd not to perform our due dili-

gence and conduct a review.” According to the staff report presented at the Sept. 1 meeting, the town has sufficient funds available to commence with the metering project, and can be reimbursed by residents over either a 12-month period or in a one-time payment. The estimated expense for each parcel in Harbor Bay would be between $250 and $600. The board of directors is set to revisit the project at the Oct. 6 regular CSD meeting.

747. But according to Mary Vinciguerra, LUHSD director of curriuculum and instruction, the district’s combined 57-point gain in the past four years is the real news. “I believe that our combined point gain is the highest in the county,” said Vinciguerra. “So we’re doing OK; we’re extremely pleased. I think our success is a combination of things. Our intervention programs are kicking in for the kids that need that extra support; our district assessments have been implemented, and that is helpful; and just working to get the kids to take the tests seriously has made a big difference. Our teachers are doing a fantastic job, and we are very proud of them.” Anne Allen, assistant superintendent of education services for the Oakley Union School District, is proud as well. This year, the Oakley district saw a seven-point gain in API scores, taking it to 779. “Overall, we’re very pleased,” said Allen. “And the best part of what we’re seeing is that we are focusing on some of the sub-groups that have been struggling, and we’re seeing a difference. Some years we will have big gains and some years small gains, but through it all, our focus remains on the students.” In the Byron Union School District, scores continued to improve this year, from last year’s 795 to 797 – putting the district just three points short of the 800-point goal. In spite of the impressive local and state scores, opponents of the API system, who believe not only that the teachers teach to the API tests, but that administrators and

teachers are feeding students both real test questions and their answers. Vinciguerra vehemently disagreed. “Security is extremely tight on these tests,” she said. “Of the thousands and thousands of books we have in this district, if we are missing even one, we hear about it. There is no way anyone could have access to the final questions.” Allen echoed Vinciguerra’s response. “My reaction to that is that saying you are teaching to the test is misleading,” he said. “There are sample questions that teachers use, but no one has access to the real tests. You sign your life away when you get them (the tests). You can’t open the boxes – you

can’t do anything. I get the frustration of everything being based on one test, but I can tell you that no one knows the real questions in advance.” But one thing the district officials do know for certain is that no matter how high the API scores soar, there is always room for improvement. “We had a great year. It’s all very positive,” said Gill. “But we’re definitely continuing to work hard on all fronts so we can continue to grow. Next year, we’ll set the bar even higher.” To see a complete listing of the 200910 API scores by district and school, go to www.cde.ca.gov. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Heritage downs Kennedy in blowout by Michael Dixon Correspondent The Heritage High varsity football team is looking to make the jump from good to great. And judging by the first three games of the season, they might be ready to make that leap. Friday night’s win over Kennedy was the most decisive yet, as the Patriots racked up a 61-7 score. “It feels good. We thought we were pretty talented and we’re living up to it, so far,” Patriots head coach Jeff Haagenson said. “Obviously we have a big test next week but we wanted to be 3-0 at this point, and we are.” The game was never close, as senior running back Kruger Story Jr. scored a touchdown on the opening possession from one yard out. He would add another later in the game from five yards. Senior Will Pedrotti missed the PAT on the first touchdown in what was essentially the only mistake Heritage made all night. When senior quarterback Brent Eikanas hit junior receiver Dorian Hardy on a 52-yard touchdown pass on the first play of the next Patriot possession, the rout was on. Pedrotti atoned for his prior miss by catching a pass from Eikanas to make the score 14-0. After that, he made all five of his extrapoint attempts. “We played hard; it was all from the summer workouts,” said junior running back Jeremiah Poti, who made a two-yard plow and a 91-yard interception return for a touchdown. “In the summer, the coaches told us that if we work hard, we’ll do good.” For Michael Dixon’s full story on Friday night’s game, visit www.thepress.net. Freedom 23, West 7 Freedom High varsity football head coach Kevin Hartwig was pleased with his defense, which kept West’s offense at bay in a 23-7 win at home Friday night, boosting the Falcons’ record to 2-1.

Freedom started the scoring with a TD run by senior running back D’Amora Cooper in the first quarter. Hartwig also enjoyed the progression of sophomore quarterback Dante Mayes, who is in his first year of varsity action. Mayes was hurt in last week’s win over Berkeley, but came back in the second quarter of the West game. “He played really well, made some big throws, made some big runs and matured a lot from week one,” Hartwig said. On fourth-and-11 late in the fourth quarter, Mayes threw a touchdown pass to junior receiver Stephen Rodriguez to seal the win. At 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 24, the Falcons host Golden Valley from Merced. The Cougars come into the game with a 2-1 record.

Deer Valley 41, Fremont 21 Also on Friday night, Deer Valley High’s varsity football team advanced to 3-0 with a 41-21 win over Fremont. According to Wolverine head coach Rich Woods, it was a weird game. His team committed a couple uncharacteristic penalties and mistakes, including a snap that sailed high over quarterback Mike Behr’s head. The Tigers ran that mistake in for a score. Despite the miscues, Woods was happy with the victory. “Our goal was to come out 3-0,” he said. “This was pretty much a smashmouth game. These guys are a physical group.” Woods got vital contributions from senior running backs Lamontay Marshall, who rushed for more than 100 yards for the second consecutive week, and Brian Thomas. Defensively, senior defensive back Jeremy Jermon, senior lineman Charles Alexander and junior defensive back Miles Walker delivered solid performances. At 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 24, the Wolverines travel to Pleasant Hill to face 1-2 College Park. Woods said Deer Valley would need to prepare for the Falcons’ option-style offense. San Ramon Valley 41, Antioch 14 Antioch High’s varsity football team played what head coach John Lucido called a learning game in its 41-14 home loss to San Ramon Valley on Friday. Lucido said he wanted to see where his team stood against a more established program such as the Wolves. San Ramon Valley was up 27-0 by halftime, but Lucido was proud of the way the Panthers kept fighting. “It was kind of a test for us,” he said. “They played as a team all four quarters and never argued.” Antioch got on the board in the third quarter on a 14yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Troy Amate to junior running back Anthony Borrelli. In the fourth quarter, Amate scored on a quarterback sneak to give Antioch its second and final touchdown of the game. Justin Lafferty contributed to this story.

Falcons topple Patriots in BVAL matchup by Justin Lafferty

Boys: Heritage 17, Freedom 3

While Freedom High girls varsity water polo coaches weren’t in love with the process, they’re happy with the result of Monday’s game – a 7-3 win over Heritage in their home pool. Falcon head coach Lindsay Bell said that despite the victory, she saw a team that looked sloppy and unlike the team that has compiled a 6-2 record this season (3-0 in Bay Valley Athletic League play). “There was a lot that we did well – there was a lot that we could’ve done a whole lot better,” Bell said. “We didn’t play the way we normally do. We slacked off a lot. It just almost seemed like it wasn’t our team out there.” Down 2-1 in the second quarter, Freedom tied it up on a goal by Anna Carter. In the third quarter, senior Taylor Henry scored two more goals to give the Falcons a 4-2 lead. From there, Freedom simply took control of the scoreboard. Carter added another goal in the fourth quarter. The Patriots responded with a goal by sophomore Caitlin Cook, cutting the lead to 5-3. Cook netted two goals on Monday after junior Caitlyn Freeman scoring the first of the game. Cook, Freeman and goalie Caitlin Bronzan have been the team’s three key leaders this season. The Falcons scored twice more on

The Heritage boys varsity water polo team jumped out to a 10-1 lead at halftime on Monday, holding on for a 17-3 win. Junior Carter Haynes scored five goals for the Patriots, senior Kurt Holzmuller netted four more and senior Travis West contributed three assists. Junior goalie Ty Elder was credited with 10 saves. So far this season, Heritage is 5-5 overall; 3-1 against BVAL opponents. “We went out, executed our game plan, and they stayed consistent throughout the entire game,” said Patriot head coach Derek Perkins. “We’ve been playing really well this year. … They’ve had a lot of hard-fought battles, in and out, every week.” Freedom head coach George Petko said this match was a learning experience for the Falcons, who feature six underclassmen and just one senior – goalie Dalton Weger – on their varsity roster. “We lost a lot last year,” said Petko, “so this year’s going to be our point to rebuild for our younger kids.” Sophomore Zack Oetken scored Freedom’s first goal, junior Galvin Dorn notched the second, and freshman Cameron Ott-Bales the third. The Patriots’ boys junior varsity team came out on top in its game, too, beating the Falcons 9-2. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Panther water polo gets feet wet by Michael Dixon Correspondent The Antioch High varsity girls and boys water polo teams have less experience than their Bay Valley Athletic League rivals, but head coach Nick Plurkowski feels there are reasons to believe that improvement will come sooner, not later. “They’re coming together as a team,” said Plurkowski of the girls team, which lost 15-3 to Liberty last Wednesday. “Getting all the way to the shot and then just missing the shot.” The girls team has started the BVAL season 0-2, losing to Heritage and Liberty. Looking beyond the record, the Panthers do field talented players who can provide excitement and energy. One of those is Shelby Graceman, who despite her freshman status is a starter and the focal point of the offense. “I think we’re doing a lot better than I anticipated and I think that we’ve really come along as a team,” said Graceman. “Some of the people who haven’t played are really getting the hang of it.” Plurkowski is looking for leadership from co-captains Casey Blalock and Alexis Hagler. Blalock notched the Panthers’ first two goals against Liberty; Hagler is the team’s senior goalie. “You have got to know your teammates and how they play,” said Hagler, who noted that the team has improved since the start of the year. “You’ve got to know how the team

that you’re going against plays. Pretty much knowing all players.” The Antioch boys are also off to a rough start. After a 17-1 loss to Liberty, the Panther boys have fallen to a 0-7 start, including two league losses. The boys’ roster is also loaded with players from the Antioch baseball team. “They have strong arms; we’re just trying to get their legs and swimming abilities down so they can keep up with the year-around aquatic people,” Plurkowski said of his baseball players. “But they’re picking the game up pretty quickly, too. They’ve had two matches and a tournament, so this is their seventh game, but they’re coming along.” The boys team comprises roughly half baseball players and half aquatic athletes. Plurkowski identified Michael McGoldrick, Kevin Hendricks and Josh

Ryder as team leaders. McGoldrick and Hendricks are among the baseball players who’ve picked up water polo quickly. “They’re starting to play together as a team, so it’s really exciting to see them around the pool,” said Plurkowski, who was pleased with the development of his young team. “Our shots are looking good; we just need to get a few more in.” Despite the winless records, Plurkowski is optimistic that the Panthers, both boys and girls, are on their way to becoming much stronger teams. “We’re hoping to get one or two wins this year in the league for both boys and girls. The girls still have a tournament coming up, so hopefully a win in there, too,” he said. “We’re hoping to play some good ball against these teams and at least have some close games.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Wolverines from page 1B joined up front by two other seniors who will be integral to Deer Valley’s success. Tyler Harper returns at middle blocker to provide some tough defense for opposing hitters, while Keesh Tolentino returns at setter, which has Panzella excited for the coming season. “(Keesh) had a fantastic season as a junior, and we really expect her to be awesome this season,” said Panzella of the linchpin of the ballcontrol effort he preaches. “Everything will revolve around how well we can control the ball. If we can’t pass the ball well, we will go down in flames.” Those are strong words from a man with high expectations of his team – expectations that help guide the team’s success from year to year. “The tradition of success carries some weight and pressure, but the positives outweigh the pressure,” said Panzella. “Our players have been winners, so hopefully that will help us when we need to find a way to win.” Of the early questions the Wolverines need to answer, two of the biggest will be to see how this year’s team replaces the two starters lost from the 2009 season. Sandra Foster led the team in kills last year and was the Wolverines’ primary passer, while Tasia Kwa led the attack as an outside hitter. It does seem, however, that the pieces are in place for Deer Valley to make another strong run at a league title. Panzella recognizes that “Heritage has some real good athletes, and Liberty always plays tough,” but his primary task is to find out how his own team will develop. The Wolverines don’t start league play until Oct. 5, when they travel to face Freedom. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

American got on the board in the third quarter on a one-yard dive by Wong. A twopoint conversion made the score 15-8. After the teams traded turnovers, Liberty junior running back Joseph Canady added a oneyard TD run to give his team a 22-8 lead.

The Eagles scored the final touchdown of the game on a 27-yard run by Johnson, but a failed two-point conversion kept the deficit to eight until the safety on the blocked punt. “It was a tough battle, but we pulled it off,” said senior running back Shawn Vasquez, who amassed a team-high 116 rushing yards. “We were getting real nervous. We shouldn’t have let it slip through our fingers like that, but we got the win.” At 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 24, the Lions will travel to Orinda to face Miramonte, which owns a 3-0 record going into the game. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Although Tommy Laliberte and David Press battled for the wingless sprint car championship at the Antioch Speedway all season, culminating in the final point race last weekend, the results are so close that officials want to check the scoring sheets from the entire season before they announce the champion. Laliberte, who was on top most of the year with Press on his heels, came into the final point race with a 554 to 534 lead over his pursuer. All the leader needed was a solid finish in the main event. However, that wasn’t in the cards for Laliberte, who placed third in his heat race while Press won his heat. And in the main event, Laliberte car was damaged in an accident, forcing him to restart last. He still had time to move up in the race, but the final laps were run clean without a yellow flag to bring the field together. Press finished fourth in the feature while Laliberte settle for 13th. Now they must wait for the re-

sults of the recap. In the dwarf car championship chase, Nick Squatritto entered the final night with 624 points compared to Jerry Doty’s 616 and defending champion Ricardo Rivera’s 584. Doty came out on top with a sixth-place main-event finish and Squatritto dropped to 17th after failing to finish the feature. Rivera won his heat and the main event but couldn’t catch the top pair. The 360 winged sprints top Saturday night’s card, while the point season comes to a close for the super stocks, pure stocks and four bangers. Wingless Sprints: Heat Winners – Nick Larson and David Press; Main Event – Braeden Enos, Jim Perry Jr. and Gary Nelson Jr. Dwarf Cars: Heat Winners – Nick Squatritto, Tom Brown and Ricardo Rivera; Main Event – Rivera, Brown and Tony Carmignani. Mini Trucks: Heat Winners – Travis Dutra and Danny Wagner; Main Event – Dutra, Mike Harmon Sr. and Pete Paulson. Four Bangers: Heat Winner – Patti Ryland; Main Event – Ryland, Justin Silvera and Mike Felt.

2010 OAKLEY PRESS OAKLEY

Patriots roar back The Delta Patriots Varsity West team came back from the brink with three fourth quarter touchdowns to top the Patriots North in dramatic fashion, 18-14. North quarterback Tre Edwards hit running back Jacob Martin streaking down the sidelines for a 65-yard touchdown in the final seconds of the first half. Fleet-footed Pats North running back Marcus Zangai bolstered the lead with a 38-yard TD scamper. Trailing 14-0 going into the fourth quarter, West drove 65 yards on the legs of running back Kyle Trego, who capped

the drive with a five-yard touchdown burst behind the blocks of Cade Bonte, Dylan Kenny and Tyler Page. Fireworks continued on the ensuing North possession when West linebacker Shane Goodwin picked off a pass and raced 49 yards for the touchdown to close the gap. West quarterback Alex Hull hooked up with tight end Zack McBride on a four-yard TD strike to climax the comeback. The win improves the West record to 4-1, while the North drops to 3-3.

Lions battle Crusaders The cold and wet Saturday morning began with the East County Lions scout level battling the San Leandro Crusaders. The Lion offense was spearheaded by Jay Butterfield and Braxton Copeland. Copeland scored twice on long runs, while Butterfield passed and ran his way to a good day. The Lion defense was as strong as ever, led by hard hitting from Cole Gregerson, Dalton Houston, Justin and Eric Bergen, Peyton Borrelli and Jacoby Padilla. The junior pee wee team faced a stern test and came away with an 18-12 victory. The junior midgets hung tough against a battle-tested Crusader squad. The offense struggled, but in the end, played

well. The Lion defense went on the attack with strong play from defensive linemen Jack Smith, Preston Charles Merril, Lee Shepard and Kyle Coonan. The hitting was supplied by linebackers Chase Peralta, Jesse Gregerson, Dominique Espino and Kopono Carrerra. The highlight, however, was the secondary, featuring Damion Gomez, and Dominique Dominguez and safety Christian Davilla. Dominguez made an interception and Davilla returned a pick 65 yards for a touchdown. The game was tied 6-6 and went into overtime, where the Crusaders prevailed. The East County Lions host the San Ramon T Birds on Saturday.

Flu shots recommended The Centers for Disease Control is recommending that everyone 6 months and older get a flu shot this season, including the previously nonrecommended age group of healthy, non-pregnant adults 18 to 49. The

expansion of the age groups is based on concerns that the 2009 H1N1 – or swine flu – virus will continue to circulate during the upcoming flu season, and data suggests that possible complications within the 18-to-49 age group

might be greater this year. Flu vaccinations begin in early September and continue through the winter. While influenza outbreaks can occur as early as October, most of the time influenza activity peaks in January or later. There are two ways to get vaccinated: 1. The “flu shot” – a vaccine (contain-

ing killed virus) injection. The flu shot is approved for use in those older than 6 months, including both those in good health and those with chronic medical conditions. 2. The nasal-spray flu vaccine – a vaccine made with live, weakened flu viruses that do not cause the flu. It is approved for use in healthy people age 2 to 49 who are not pregnant.

Seafood – to your health by Kiki Powers

California Wine & Food Alliance Without a doubt, seafood is one of the healthiest foods you can eat, assuming it’s not breaded and fried, of course. Seafood is low in fat and calories, and a great source of highquality protein. White fish contains less fat than any other source of animal protein, and oily fish are high in omega-3 fatty acids – the “good” fats. Since the human body can’t make these essential fats, fish is an important dietary staple, though flaxseed oil and walnuts are also fair omega-3 sources. Omega-3 fats have been shown to promote a healthy heart, help prevent blood clots and minimize chronic inflammation in the body. Fish richest in omega-3 oils include salmon, albacore tuna, mackerel, herring and sardines. The Environmental Working Group offers a list of the healthiest overall seafood choices, based on impact to the environment and benefit to your health. These include Dungeness crab, mussels, oysters, wild Alaskan salmon, Oregon shrimp, farmed rainbow trout and albacore tuna. Here is an elegant but easy recipe for oven-baked salmon:

Dijon-pecan-crusted Salmon ¼ cup butter, melted 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard 1½ tablespoons honey ¼ cup dry breadcrumbs ¼ cup finely chopped pecans 4 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley

4 (4-ounce) salmon fillets Salt and pepper to taste 1 lemon for garnish Preheat oven to 400 F. In a small bowl, stir together butter, mustard and honey. Set aside. In another bowl, mix together breadcrumbs, pecans and parsley. Brush each salmon fillet lightly with the honey-mustard mixture and sprinkle the tops of the fillets with the breadcrumb mixture. Bake salmon 12 to 15 minutes or until it flakes easily with a fork. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with sliced lemons and fresh parsley. Complimentary wines might include a good local sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, viognier or even a pinot noir. A light to medium-bodied red can pair well with heartier fish such as salmon and tuna, but might overpower delicate fish such as sole or halibut unless you prepare them with piquant flavors such as capers, sundried tomatoes or kalamata olives. When you buy wine locally, ask about food pairings – you’ll often learn something new. Here’s to the exciting, ongoing journey of food, wine and the good life. Bon appétit!

OBITUARY Oakley resident Dave Bauer, general manager of Ironhouse Sanitary District until his retirement in 2005, passed away at the age of 53 on Aug. 23 in Yosemite National Park. Dave was born in Pittsburg on March 30, 1957 and resided in East County his entire life. He lived in Antioch for 30 years until moving to Oakley in 1987. Dave was a man of many talents and hobbies and was always tinkering with something. He loved being outdoors, especially in the mountains or out on the water. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, traveling in the RV,

spired vows, which were truly one of a kind. The tables at the indoor reception were labeled with some of the couple’s favorite Disneyland names and places, and Disney music in the background accentuated the mood. The guest tables were black with a burst of pink, but it was the cake table that caught the eye. The table was done up with a zebra print tablecloth and satin fuchsia box supporting the square-stacked red velvet cake adorned with fuchsia cherry blossoms climbing to the top, where a Mickey and Minnie wedding cake topper stood. Big Al the caricaturist did his magic at the reception while the wedding party posed for pictures outside. The wedding was truly a fairy tale from start to finish.

manda Nicole Bell and Jacob Michael Meadows were married June 18, 2010 in a beautiful evening ceremony held outdoors in Pleasant Hill. Pastor Larry Adams officiated.

The flower girls were Andrea Bell (sister of the bride) and Shelby McDonald (niece of the groom). The best man was Dylan Ramos; the groomsmen were Robert Woolf, Mikey Lizarraga, Jay Boffa, Alec Nadelle, Ryan Miller and Brandon Bishop (all good friends of the groom). The ring bearer was the groom’s nephew Luke Noon. The groom’s niece and nephew’ Connor McDonald and Bailey Noon’ served as candle lighters. Celebrating the special day were 200 family and friends. Amanda is the daughter of Ted and Joanne Bell of Oakley. She is a 2007 graduate of Freedom High School and is a currently a nursing student at Cal

Baptist University in Riverside. She will graduate with her bachelor’s degree in nursing in the spring of 2011.

Anniversary No. 55

David Nelson Bauer

manda Jo Velasco and Hugo Rodriguez were married on June 26 at the Brentwood Golf Club. The couple, both Liberty High School graduates, met more than five years ago through work at Brentwood Ace Hardware and were engaged more than two years ago, on Amanda’s 18th birthday. Since Amanda and Hugo love Disneyland, they held a unique Disney-themed wedding featuring a black, fuchsia and zebra print color scheme along with Gerbera daisies as the main décor. Amanda’s parents – Jodie and Jeff Larson, and Fausto and Cyndi Velasco – with help from Hugo’s parents – Antonio and Maria Rodriguez – and Amanda’s grandparents Jerry and Joann Thorpe, gave the wedding. The wedding party consisted of best Man Louie Koeppel; groomsmen Ryan Pruitt, Casey Gallagher, John Capps and Joel McDonnel; Maid of Honor Melissa Murphy; and bridesmaids Amy Velasco, Theresa Businger, Audrey Pollock and Natasha Decker. The ceremony was held outdoors at the club’s gazebo against the backdrop of the golf course, and was officiated by Amanda’s grandfather Jerry Thorpe. Jerry wrote the couples’ Disney-in-

country music, driving tractors and his Corvette, but most of all enjoyed spending time with friends and family. Dave is survived by his loving wife, Cynthia Bauer of Oakley; adoring daughter, Jennifer Painter (Warren); caring sons, David Eric Bauer, Jason Bauer (Meghann), George Andelin Jr. (Kim) and Ryan Andelin (Monica). He was Papa Extraordinaire to Shelby, Jessica, David Dennis, Nicole, Samantha, Logan, Mason, Haley, Joshua and Kaylin. Dave was a loving brother to Melanie Allen (Chris), Monica Henley (Joe), Marilyn Burk (Tim) and Chris Bauer, and was Uncle Dave to numerous nieces and nephews. Dave was a loyal and thoughtful friend to many. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. A Celebration of Dave’s Life will be held Saturday, Sept. 25 at 3 p.m. at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 1360 E. Tregallas Road in Antioch.
