Retraction In last week’s edition, the Press reported a legal opinion from the California First Amendment Coalition that meetings of the Town of Discovery Bay’s Community Center Subcommittee (CCS), whose six members until recently included three directors of the CSD Board, were subject to the posting and reporting requirements of the Brown Act because the committee is a standing committee, not an ad hoc committee as asserted earlier by President Ray Tetreault. The status of the CCS is correct, but the Press was incorrect in reporting that the Act applies to meetings that 1) do not involving all three of the CSD Board members who are on the CCS, or 2) that do see Retraction page 26A

THIS WEEK

by Ruth Roberts Discovery Bay CSD meeting agenda packets will now be available to the public on the Friday before a scheduled Wednesday meeting, even after the CSD offices close. In the past, the public has been invited to pick up packets at the town offices as they became available, but there have been times when the packets were completed just as the town offices closed on a Friday afternoon, making it impossible for some residents to pick up a copy until the following Monday. At the Oct. 7 regular meeting, CSD Vice President Mark Simon suggested a box be placed outside the town offices where agenda packets could be placed on Friday afternoons when the packets are prepared

Cops concerned about state prisoner release by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

Tens of thousands of criminals will be released early onto the streets of California in the coming years to help relieve prison overcrowding, and local police are concerned it will result in increasing crime. “I know from the Contra Costa Police Chiefs Association, we do have a concern that if the state of California is going to be releasing between 20,000 and 40,000 inmates to the California streets, what’s the plan for re-entry (into society)?” said Antioch Police Chief Jim Hyde. “We haven’t heard a serious plan other than the folks will be assigned to parole officers and all that. “If you release them from state prison and they don’t have any place to go to, then they are homeless. If they are homeless, they are in a desperate state and they tend to re-offend and turn back to a life of crime as a way to

live.” The prisoner-release program was announced last month in response to a threejudge U.S. District Court ruling in August that state prisons, which are at nearly double their capacity, have two years to reduce overcrowding to no more than 137.5 percent of the prison space. That would require a reduction of about 40,000 prisoners. State officials responded with a plan that takes three years to nearly meet that goal through a variety of measures. Those include sending fewer parole violators back to prison, reducing the time that prisoners serve, deporting illegal immigrant prisoners, reducing to a misdemeanor thefts less than $950 and allowing low-risk offenders to serve the last year of their sentence under house arrest.

Double-transplant candidate Aaron Tanner, 4, has cleared another hurdle in his quest for a new heart and kidney. This week, the Brentwood toddler is expected to be placed on the organ wait list at UCLA Medical Center, where he will receive A1 status, making him the top priority for organ donation. Speaking by phone this week from UCLA Medical Center, Aaron’s mother Elizabeth said she remains hopeful and grateful: “Aaron is stable at the moment and he should be (donor) listed this week. Once that happens, doctors have told us that honestly it could be four to six months before a size and blood match become available, but we’re hoping for sooner rather than later.” Aaron and Elizabeth arrived at UCLA two weeks ago from UCSF, where they had been living since June. The move was a prerequisite for final approval from the UCLA surgeon who will perform the risky surgery, and from the insurance carrier covering Aaron’s procedure. This week, the green light was given for both, and Photo courtesy of Elizabeth Tanner while insurance won’t cover all of the estimated $2 to $3 Aaron Tanner, 4, is currently residing at UCLA Medical Center million surgery, it will defray a substantial portion. awaiting rare heart-and-kidney-transplant surgery. see A-List page 15A

by Ruth Roberts Four seats on the Discovery Bay Property Owners Association (DBPOA) board have been filled following last month’s election, and President Dominic Carano hopes the combination of fresh and familiar faces will make for a more productive and successful organization. “Our board has changed completely in the past year,” said Carano. “It’s basically a whole new board and I don’t necessarily think that’s a bad thing. I see it all as a positive. I’m hoping for good things.” Two incumbents, Jack Parker and Omar Hindiyeh, were re-elected to the two-year term, and newcomers Bobbi Nugent and Shirley Tilton secured the remaining seats. Positions on the board have not yet been determined. Nugent, who was the highest vote getter, is looking forward to making a constructive difference. “I’m happy to be here and excited to help move this board in a positive direction,” said Nugent,

The spider is a creature grotesquely unlike me. It sports GER eight legs and way ERICKSON too many eyes for my taste. It wears its skeleton on its sleeve and its abdomen in its back pocket. And it dines with a gruesome gentility, paralyzing its prey with venom, wrapping the hapless victim in silk while its innards liquefy, and returning later to sip away with a straw. No writer of horror fiction has dreamed up a beast more bizarre. The Nightmare on Arachnid Street might feel like a primal emotion, but some experts aren’t so sure. Recent studies suggest that our disgust at the image of a spider is a form of disease-avoidance response with historical and geographical roots. When plague swept through Europe during the Middle Ages, spiders came to be associated with the plague. The real

– at first no greater than to other crawling things – soon went haywire. In short, arachnophobia got its start as a “displaced anxiety” and became entrenched as an unconscious vestige of that anxiety. To augment this theory, researcher Graham C.L. Davey of City University, London points out that “the tendency of Europeans and their descendants to

be fearful of spiders does not seem to be shared by people in many non-European cultures.” In fact, many non-European cultures revere spiders as symbols of wisdom or good fortune. Prominent in the folktales of the Ashanti of Ghana, West Africa is the character Anansi the Spider, a lovable trickster similar to the god Loki in Norse mythology. Also in some areas of Africa, as well as Indo-China, the Caribbean, and among Native Americans and the aborigines of Australia, spiders are kept as pets, released at weddings as a token of good luck (and lovingly laid in the bed of the blissed-out couple), and even gobbled down (we’re talking lethally venomous spiders here) as a culinary delicacy. Mmmm. One non-fictional spider that inspires fear way out of proportion to its actual menace is the tarantula: huge, hairy, scary – and gentle as a lamb … unless you’re an insect. The male tarantula stops growing at about age 7, at which time he sheds his exoskeleton for the last time. Normally a nocturnal creature, the mature male leaves the protection of his burrow in September and October and goes looking for a mate in broad daylight. That procreative impulse is good for the species but hazardous to the suitor’s health. Out in the open, see Outside page 13A

Improved medical records is in the cards by Samie Hartley Staff Writer When patients are admitted to the emergency room, medical professionals must make split-second decisions – sometimes without the medical history necessary to make a thorough diagnosis. But one Brentwood company is trying to change that. Mike Williams, president of the medical supplies store MedSolutions, knows the importance of easy access to medical records in an emergency. “Last year my dad was experiencing heart complications and was taken to the emergency room,” Williams said. “It took doctors a while to come up with the best course of treatment because they didn’t have access to all his medical records right away, so it got me thinking: why can’t people take personal control of their records?” Williams devised MedIDCard, a product the size of a credit card with a retractable USB flash drive that stores pertinent medical information that might come in handy during an emergency. The MedIDCard software, MedIDWare, is built directly into the card and can be accessed from any computer with no downloads necessary. As the card’s autorun software is both MAC and Windows compatible, medical professionals can access the card’s information at all times regardless of their computer’s operating system. MedIDCard users may input as much or little information as they’d like. Williams said the 2GB (2 billion bytes) on the card provides more than enough storage space for all your information. There are pages to enter information manually, but the card is also capable of storing PDFs of scanned medical records, X-rays and even legal documents such as wills and power-of-attorney declarations. There is also a print and e-mail function so information from the card can be sent to a doctor in a

non-emergency case. “It’s like an insurance policy in your pocket,” Williams said. “You never know when you’ll be in an accident and need access to this information. With the MedIDCard technology, you can keep all of this with you on your person. You can list your allergies and medications, your blood type, family history, immunizations, insurance contact information – you can list if you’re a donor. It’s all the critical information that doctors will need to know to accurately treat you. It’s all there. The MedIDCard speaks for you when you can’t.” Jane Schmitz, a rehab product specialist from Alameda, heard about MedIDCard from Williams and decided to try the product to keep track of her grandmother’s health records. “My grandma is 91 years old and she’s very independent, but this card helps us keep track of all her medications and store updated information about doctor’s visits,” Schmitz said. “She’s on at least 20 different medications, so this allows us and the doctors to have

all her information right at our fingertips. This way, no matter who takes her to a doctor’s appointment, we’ve got all the needed information right on the card.” Schmitz said she was also surprised about how easy the card is to use: “I’m not very tech savvy, but the program is so simple to understand and the drop-down menus make it easy to plug in all your information. You never know when something might happen and you need access to all this information for yourself or a loved one, and it’s helpful to have it all with you in your purse or wallet. After seeing how much it’s benefited my grandma, I think I might even get one for myself.” According to Sutter Delta Medical Center Communications and Marketing Manager Angela Juarez-Lombardi, “We are always very encouraged when patients proactively collect important information regarding their medical history, and the product appears to take patients down that track. Depending on a patient’s condition or treatment plan, there can be a lot of information and paperwork

collected, so the idea of putting it in one place is a great idea.” She also mentioned that while the product is defined as universal, some computers in shared community areas such as an emergency room might have the USB port disabled to prevent the transmission of computer viruses, so a device like this might be more suited for private physicians until technology like this becomes more common. Williams knows it might take a while for a product like MedIDCard to catch on, but he’s confident that people be will drawn to the card’s ability to help people take control of their health records. “Having control of your health care is a big issue these days,” he said. “Most people – all of us, frankly – rely on the medical community to maintain our medical records. Not that we shouldn’t trust medical professionals. Of course we should, but this allows you to take control of your own records so that you see Cards page 7A

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE “SHADOW�? We keep hearing that there is another large wave of bank-owned homes about to hit the market. These are all the homes that the banks have foreclosed on (or should have foreclosed on by now), but haven’t been put on the market yet. Why haven’t they been put on the market? There are a variety of reasons. First, there were all the government-imposed moratoriums mixed in with the banks imposing foreclosure moratoriums on themselves. This is similar to how there are some programs in the stock market that put a halt to trading if the market trades down by more than so many points in a day. Sort of a “cooling-off period� to prevent catastrophic panic selling. A second reason is that many of these banks are just overwhelmed and can’t keep up with the workflow to process all these foreclosures. It may sound silly, but a lot of them may be just sitting in a pile on someone’s desk, waiting for them to wade through the hundreds, if not thousands, of files they are responsible for. The third reason is a bit more complex. It has to do with the bank’s reserve requirements

from the Federal Reserve. They are supposed to keep so much cash on hand to offset their “bad� loans. Well, a lot of banks don’t have enough cash, so they are delaying foreclosing on these homes to keep their reserve account intact. If they were to take on too many foreclosures, the Federal Reserve could declare them insolvent, and take them over. All these factors have combined to keep many bank-owned homes off the market this year, which has artificially depressed the number of homes for sale. The big question is when will they all finally get released onto the market? No one knows for sure. And now we are starting to wonder if the banks and the government are going to be able to keep finding ways to trickle the inventory out slowly, instead of in a big glut? If they have, then this IS the bottom of the market. If you have questions on this or any other real estate topic, call me at (925) 240-MOVE (6683).

ecent typhoons have impacted more than 4 million Filipinos and killed nearly 300. Members of the Filipino-American community of Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, seen here, responded by holding a collection drive at the church on Oct. 18 to aid the flood victims. In a single day of collection, the Fil-Am members were able to fill more than 33 large boxes with clothing, shoes, towels, bedding, canned goods and medicines. The boxes were immediately transported to Concord, where the Catholic organization Couples for Christ will manage the distribution when the supplies arrive in the Philippines. The Fil-Am thanks all those who generously provided the supplies and volunteers for the relief effort.

With us being smack-dab in the middle of fall, it seems more is changing than the color of the leaves or the outside temperature. The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) is “fall cleaning” and revamping the guidelines on their increasingly popular FHA Streamline Refinance. In September Mortgage Bankers Association reported that government-insured loans — meaning FHA and VA financing, but mostly FHA loans — represented 36 percent of all loan applications — the largest market penetration since 1990. With that said, and with rates still continuing to hover around all time lows, it should be no surprise that the almost paperless Streamline Refinance is seeing more applications than ever. However, the FHA has now revised its guidelines, and beginning November 17 – less than one month from now – it will be more difficult for borrowers to qualify. Historically the FHA had accepted people for its Streamline Refinance program without regard to employment, proof of cash needed for closing, or full appraisals. Starting November 17, 2009, all borrowers under this program must: (1) be employed at the time of their application; (2) show proof of cash available for closing costs; and (3) obtain a full appraisal if they

want to add-in their closing costs as part of the Streamline Refinance. In addition, starting early next year, the FHA may begin to deny Streamline Refinance requests based on the borrower’s employment and income, too little assets, or too low an appraised value. You can be sure a lot of today’s credit-approved homeowners will be wishing they acted sooner. The previous refinance approach was to help its (FHA’s) homeowners to lower payments however possible. By helping homeowners to lower their monthly mortgage payment, the FHA was also lowering its overall credit risk. That is no longer the case and the last thing you’ll want to do is wait too long to act! If you have an FHA mortgage - just for the heck of it - research your streamline refinance options against today’s guidelines. You never know what’ll turn up, but you’ll be guaranteeing yourself peace of mind by exhausting all of your resources before fall is gone and the broom comes out for spring cleaning. If you have any real estate lending related questions or concerns, or wish to speak with a Streamline expert don’t hesitate to write me at tfreymortgages@yahoo.com. You can also call me directly on my cell phone, (925) 726-1444. – Advertisement

Five professional actors from the San Francisco Shakespeare Company inspired Independence High School students with a 55-minute performance of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” on campus last week. The audience of students, faculty and staff was thoroughly engaged and transported to the medieval court of Denmark through the production, complete with sets, props, costumes and sword fights. A lighthearted question-and-answer period followed the performance, offering students insight into why most contemporary artists hold Shakespeare in such high esteem. As part of the touring production, teachers were provided standards-based

curriculum weeks before the performance – 15 lesson plans indexed to state standards for language arts and drama. Written especially for teachers, the guides served as a valuable resource to help student audiences more fully appreciate and enjoy the performance. A workshop was also provided in which students were encouraged to interact with the professionals, experience a bit of stage fright and enjoy a little performing of their own. The performance, free to the school and district, was made possible through an NEA grant received by the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival. – Contributed by Sarah Singrin

Falcon Leadership issues a challenge by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Each year, Freedom High School students participate in Challenge Day, a nationwide program designed to inspire students to put aside their differences and treat each other with kindness and respect. While this year’s Challenge Day has come and gone, Freedom’s Freshmen Leadership Training Class has designed its own campaign to keep the program’s message – Be the Change – alive on campus. “Challenge Day is about challenging the students to be better human beings,” said Leadership Advisor Dana Johnston. “It’s all about peeling away the layers to show that deep down, students have a lot of things in common. They’re all going though the same kinds of problems, so it doesn’t matter if you’re popular or not. Everyone can relate on a deeper level, and this year’s Freshmen Leadership Training Class is trying to carry that message and extend its application through the entire school year.” Each week, the Freshmen Leadership Training Class challenges the entire campus to take part in an act of kindness such as giving out 12 hugs a day or 15 compliments. When students complete a weekly challenge, they fill out a card and submit it to the office. Each week the leadership students collect the cards and reward the challengers with candygrams. Senior Leikin Poppino, who works in the Freshmen Leadership Training Class, said the weekly challenges are designed to help students open up and be more friendly with their peers: “We want students to feel comfortable as soon as they set foot on campus. These programs are a way to carry out the purpose of Challenge Day and get people involved. It’s a way to spread the love.” Another strategy to spread the love is the introduction of the Phantom Mascot. While only one person can sport the Falcon costume, each student is encouraged to be a beacon of Freedom pride and serve as an honorary mascot by acknowledging fellow students who do good deeds and promote school spirit. As the Phantom Mascot, students nominate their peers who embody the spirit of Challenge Day by going the extra mile to be a role model. “We want students to be more aware

of their surroundings and stand up for each other and speak up when they see others being wronged,” Johnston said. “And we want to acknowledge those students who take action.” The Phantom Mascot program is evolving on campus as more students hear about it. Initially, students spotted by a Phantom Mascot were awarded with a balloon and some candy, but the balloon was confused with a birthday memento, so now students receive a bag of candy, said sophomore Shannon Foster. The efforts to promote camaraderie don’t end there, either. The Freshmen Leadership Training Class is also designing a series of posters to be placed around the clocks in each

the world. The theory behind the movement, which originated in the Bay Area 20 years ago, is that if a handful of students commits to one act of kindness per day, others will be inspired and change their attitude as well. Principal Erik Faulkner has noticed a positive change on campus this year. “The leadership class has made great in roads toward helping all students transition into high school, be a positive part of high school, and be recognized as having played a positive role towards others,” he said. “From Challenge Day outreach to Phantom Mascot, our campus has seen a decrease in student discipline issues and an increase in positive behaviors.”

Bond sale saves Brentwood $14.6 million by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

The City of Brentwood has completed the sale of bonds to finance the downtown civic center at a record-low interest rate of 4.97 percent, which will free up approximately $14.6 million over the 30-year life of the bonds for use on other projects. “This is the lowest yield the city has ever received on any bond issuance,” Director of Finance and Information Systems Pam Ehler said in a memo to the City Council last Thursday. The bonds will be repaid with existing revenue streams, Ehler added, and will not require additional taxes. The news on the interest rate comes on the heels of last week’s awarding of the civic center construction contract to Lathrop Construction for $28.6 million, which is $16.4 million below city estimates. The city will spend a total of $55.6 million on the civic center project, which includes a new city hall, community center, a new surface parking lot, re-vamping of City Park and an expanded library. The figure also includes the already-completed construction of the new Senior Center next to Veterans Park. The city’s other major downtown project is the $11.5 million overhaul of the downtown streetscape and utilities, which will be undertaken simultaneously with the civic center project. The streetscape project is being financed with cash on hand, Ehler said, and will require no borrowing or increased taxes. Whereas the savings generated by the bond rate means the city will make lower payments, the $16.4 million savings on the construction contract is in cash, which can be used immediately for other purposes. The City Council will consider options for that money over the course of the coming months, Ehler said.

Oakley approves faux tree cell tower by Samie Hartley Staff Writer AT&T is known nationally as a communications provider, but the company recently went before the Oakley City Council to plant a tree. The council last week approved the installation of a 77-foot monopole wireless telecommunication facility, which will be disguised as a pine tree. The faux tree cell tower will go up behind the Golden Chopstick restaurant on Main Street within Oakley Town Center. “The tree will be installed within an existing landscape island where two trees currently exist and will remain at the construction site,” reported Oakley Senior Planner Joshua McMurray. “The tree will have three levels at which antennas may be placed. AT&T antennas will occupy the 70-foot level, with two additional carries to be located at the 50- and 60-foot levels.” The pole will be textured and painted to look like bark, and synthetic branches will be installed to make it look as lifelike as possible.

LAW OFFICES OF

The antennas will be hidden within the branches and painted to match the tree needles to create a uniform design. Councilwoman Pat Anderson questioned why the tower was designed to look like a pine tree since the city is named for its heritage of oak tree groves, but the AT&T representative told the council that an artificial pine tree provides better camouflage and height for antennae and looks more realistic than an artificial oak. Councilman Bruce Connelley joked that the tower would look like a large Christmas tree and asked the representative if the city could decorate it for the holidays. The representative said it was possible but discouraged the idea. Since the cell tower will resemble a tree, warning signs will be posted around it to discourage climbing. A 7-foot block wall will also be built around the tree to prevent tampering. After the 4-0 vote (Councilman Kevin Romick abstained since he lives within 300 feet of the build site), Mayor Carol Rios said, “I hope some of you will be happy now that you’ll have better service with your AT&T.”

Also during last week’s meeting, the council approved to hire two consultants to help the city better understand the California Energy Commission’s study involving the proposed power plant at the former Dupont Property on Bridgehead Road. The city hired Manuel O. Cañalita, who has more than 35 years of experience in the electrical transmission and generation industry, and the law firm of Jarvis, Fay, Doporto & Gibson, which is familiar with CEC procedures and power plant proposals. Radback Energy, the company that has proposed to build the Oakley Generating Station, agreed to pay the consultants’ fees for as long as their services are retained by the city. Although the proposed plant is located within city limits, the city of Oakley has no vote on whether or not the plant will be built. Since the decision rests entirely with the CEC, all Oakley can do is be involved in the overall discussion surrounding the proposed plant. The CEC investigation is expected to take 12 to 18 months, but in that time the commission will host a series of public hearings and work-

S TEVEN J. G ELLER

shops to get input from city staff as well as the public. Cañalita told the council the first step in the process is to be present at the first site visit, which is scheduled for Monday, Nov. 9. A public informational hearing and environmental scoping meeting will be held following the site visit at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall. During this time, members of the commission will be available to discuss the project and take comments from the public and city staff. For more information, visit www.energy.ca.gov/sitingcases/contracosta. PG&E announced earlier this month that it plans to buy the plant if the CEC approves construction. In other news, the council approved a conditional use permit allowing Antioch residents David and Kerry Dorn to open Delta Dog Camp at the old Bonanza building on Main Street. The dog boarding and doggie daycare facility is expected to be open by the end of the year. The council also voted to lease City Hall office space for use by a field representative for State Assemblywoman Joan Buchanan.

Stockton: Wednesday, October 28, 2009, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Stockton Scottish Rite, 33 West Alpine Avenue. The proposed Demonstration Project is a 5-year experiment to validate a new delta smelt behavioral model and study the effects of modifying flows in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta (Delta) to protect delta smelt and other sensitive aquatic species from entrainment in Central Valley Project (CVP) and State Water Project (SWP) export pumps. Research suggests that the pre-spawning migration of adult delta smelt is tied to sediment/suspended particles in the water (turbidity). Temporary gates would be placed across Old River and Connection Slough in the central Delta and operated from December to March to keep turbid water away from the CVP and SWP export pumps, thus keeping adult smelt away from the pumps, and in March and June to prevent larvae and juvenile delta smelt from being entrained by the export pumps. The Draft EA/FONSI is available at http://www.usbr.gov/mp/nepa/nepa_projdetails.cfm?Project_ID=4472. Additional information is available at http://www.usbr.gov/mp/2gates/.

Supervisor Piepho lauds local stars of State Fair Contra Costa County Supervisor Mary Piepho recently presented two resolutions congratulating and recognizing the 2009 Contra Costa County state fair booth for receiving a Silver award and the Bloomfield Vineyard for winning Best of California at the 2009 California State Fair. The Contra Costa County 2009 state fair booth received a Silver award and $4,413.52, which was designated to the Contra Costa UC Cooperative Extension. The booth was inspired and designed by East County constituent Deborah Spinola, and built by Spinola, Janet Caprile, farm advisor from the Contra Costa UC Cooperative office, and Piepho’s staff members Lea Castleberry and Karyn Cornell.

The Contra Costa County 2009 state fair booth was built with a budget of zero dollars by volunteers using donated and reclaimed materials provided by local businesses. Bloomfield Vineyards, located in the Brentwood area and owned and operated by Tom and Becky Bloomfield, received the distinguished award of Best of California for its 2008 Viognier and 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon at the 2009 Grape & Gourmet competition, which celebrates and highlights the best wines of California. Bloomfield Vineyards’ 2008 Devil’s Daughter White Wine received a Silver award, Best of Class and Best of Greater Bay Appellations. Bloomfield’s 2007 Pinot Noir received a Bronze award.

Vasco to be closed next weekend Vasco Road will be closed from the evening of Oct. 29 through the morning of Nov. 2 to allow for the safe completion of the Vasco Road Safety Project. The project includes the construction of a new and realigned roadway segment. During the closure, construction crews will connect the new roadway with the existing roadway at the northern and southern ends, and remove a large rock outcropping. Vasco Road will be closed from 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 29 until 6 a.m. Monday, Nov. 2. The closure encompasses the

segment north of the Republic Landfill Drive to south of the entrance to the Los Vaqueros Reservoir. The suggested alternative route for northbound traffic is to take I-580 east toward Tracy for 8.8 miles, merge into eastbound I-205, continue for 2.4 miles, exit at Mountain House Parkway, continue northbound for 2.2 miles, turn left onto Byron Road/Highway, continue for 8.4 miles, turn left onto Camino Diablo Road, and in 2.0 miles turn right onto Vasco Road. For southbound Vasco Road traffic, turn left onto Camino Diablo Road, con-

tinue for 2.0 miles, turn right onto Byron Highway/Road, continue for 8.4 miles, turn right onto Mountain House Parkway, continue for 2.2 miles, enter I-205 westbound, and in 2.4 miles merge with I-580 westbound, which connects with Vasco Road in 8.8 miles. For additional information, e-mail info@acpwa.org.

Small pets, large responsibility Editor: After reading Vicky McKenna’s “Hangin’ in There” column on Oct. 16, I was greatly disappointed and saddened that any editor of the Brentwood Press would allow this article to be printed for public review. Before Vicki McKenna should yell and complain to the veterinarian and demand a refund for Marley’s death, she should take a very hard look in the mirror and ask, “Was I a good pet owner for Marley?” If she cannot come up with the answer to this question, I recommend that Vicki reads her article again. Vicki’s article is a classic example of buying a cute furry pet for $12 at the local pet store and are naïve as to how to care for this animal. Then the $12 pet has a health problem; now the owner is unwilling to pay for the extra veterinary expense. Oh, by the way, that cute $12 hamster is not a cute fur ball in a cage; it is a life and you take on the responsibility to properly care for that life. Vicky reluctantly takes Marley to a veterinarian after its condition has progressed to losing most of its hair and has traumatized its skin from excessive scratching. Marley was diagnosed and treated for mite infestation and secondary skin infection. Mite infestations usually occur in animals that have a compromised immune system from either another preexisting condition and/or chronic stress. Skin infections resulting from a long duration of mite infestation can be potentially life threatening, especially in small patients such as a hamster. This article has inspired me to encourage all pet owners to obtain as much knowledge and information about the care of your particular pet. Establishing a relationship with a veterinarian is an excellent source for acquiring proper health care for that animal. I recommend all pet owners to have their pets evaluated by a veterinarian with a minimum once a year and ideally twice a year exam. If the pet is very young or very old it

If you obtain a new pet from the pet store, breeder or friend, please take that pet to a veterinarian for an initial wellness exam to assure the exact health of that animal at the time of acquisition. Even if a pet is “free to good home” it can come with underlying health problems that without early detection could possibly cost the life of that animal. This may seem outrageous to even consider taking any pocket pet including hamsters to a veterinarian for an initial wellness exam; however, early recognition of unnoticed health problems oftentimes improves the quality of life and survivability for that animal.

Speak out on 2-Gates project Editor: The 2-Gates project is being pushed forward, now supported by Diane Feinstein and Barbara Boxer as part of a California Water Crisis initiative using U.S. stimulus money. The 2-Gates will close off Old River and Connection Slough periodically from December through June 30, up to 10 hours per day (Old River) and 20 hours per day (Connection Slough). Since the closing is tide-based and varies, it will be difficult for boaters to know when they are open and when they are closed. This will severely impact recreational boating, impact safety rescue operations (coast guard, marine sheriffs – could cost lives), impact local economies, (e.g., increased time/cost to get pile drivers down from Bethel to Discovery Bay, marina operators will lose business when boaters cannot get from one Marina to their favorite boating/fishing sites, etc., etc.). The list of concerns and issues with installing gates in primary navigation waterways is long and significant. In short, the gates will isolate Discovery Bay by periodically closing off the only un-bridged waterway from here to the rest of the Delta; thus could easily end up impacting our home values as well as our boating safety. And for what reason? The purpose behind installing the 2-Gates is to increase the export of water from the Delta to Central and Southern California – even though the past years of excessive exporting of water has been steadily ruining the entire Delta ecosystem, resulting in a ban on commercial salmon fishing along the entire California/Oregon coast in the past two years, and will eventually impact the water in our own back yards, changing our fresh water river to brackish, salty, polluted water. Which will pollute our wells, our drinking water. A very scary thought! The current approaches are not the right way to solve California’s water crisis. What can we do to stop the spending of money on short-sighted measures that are destroying the Delta and will signifi-

Help bands be heard in Hawaii Editor: If there were ever a doubt that the music program in the Liberty Union High School District is phenomenal, that doubt can certainly be erased. Both Heritage High School and Liberty High School bands have been invited to the Pacific Basin Music Festival in Honolulu, Hawaii in March, 2010. A maximum of 10 instrumental ensembles are accepted (by audition only) to the music festival each year. For two Brentwood high schools to comprise 20 percent of the total participants in the festival is an amazing accomplishment and an honor to the entire Brentwood community. For one week, the bands will compete with eight other high school and college bands from around the world in adjudicated group festival performances, full ensemble workshops and group reading exchanges. In addition to enhancing their musical talents, the students will have the opportunity to spend social time with other musicians from different cultures who share the common bond of a love for music. Needless to say, the cost of sending over 100 students, plus chaperones, to Hawaii over spring break is enormous. Airfare alone is running over $600 per person, plus the cost of shipping large instruments. Each band is currently holding fundraising events to help cover the costs, including car washes, performances at Farmers’ Market and other locations. Several local restaurants and other retail establishments are also partnering with the bands to donate a percentage of their proceeds on specific dates to the music festival trip. Heritage Performing Arts Boosters is also sponsoring a Car Raffle in partnership with Bill Brandt Ford, with the lucky winner receiving a new Ford Focus or a $10,000 cash payout. Only 150 tickets will be sold and are available by calling Pam Collins at 925-759-6138 or Lisa Ellingson at 925-5167303. The bands are also available for hire for private parties. Small ensembles and jazz combos are perfect for more intimate gatherings, and the full bands are available to perform at larger venues. To schedule a performance by one of the bands or to

offer other fundraising opportunities, please e-mail Steve Ernest at Heritage High School at ernests@libertyuhsd.k12.ca.us or Carrie Hurst at Liberty High School at hurstc@ libertyuhsd.k12.ca.us. As a community we can acknowledge the accomplishments of these exceptional musicians by helping to send them to the Pacific Basin Music Festival. Go, Brentwood! Kathi Reed Brentwood

Rein in DBPOA Editor : I am a 25-year resident and homeowner in Discovery Bay. I am a member in good standing of the Discovery Bay Property Owners Association and was awarded the DBPOA Hero award for my support in 1987. After many years of watching this self-serving organization, witnessing the arrogance and rudeness of some elected and appointed directors to residents, myself included, I feel that we need to pull in the reins. While attending the ballot counting at the Presbyterian Church of the recently failed DBPOA election to change the bylaws and raise the dues, I watched a DBPOA official lay his hands on and to try to deny access to a gentleman and resident who was also there to witness the ballot counting. I say enough is enough. Many residents of Discovery Bay believe that the DBPOA maintains the Discovery Bay entrance but the facts are that it manages no common interest property. None! The landscaping at the entrance is managed by the CSD. If finances were an issue, why wasn’t this request for an increase of dues included with the recent director ballot? This would have saved the cost of postage. If $125 were needed six months ago, why only $50 now? The reason the organization needs more money is due to its own flawed actions. Look at the money that is spent on attorneys and legal. Even the insurance companies must be worried, as evidenced by the premiums that are charged to cover the actions of the directors and officers. I encourage you to visit www.dbpoac. com for the facts and history of the DBPOA. This DBPOA member in good standing is Voting NO. Edwin F. Coats Jr. Discovery Bay

The problem is widespread in the United States, and combated by such entities as private investigation services that work for clothing companies. During the service of these five search warrants, approximately $250,000 of counterfeit merchandise was seized.

Letters from page 18A the City of Oakley, have organized as the Committee to Stop Rosewood Project Rezoning and have begun a petition drive to get enough signatures to allow the residents of Oakley a vote on this terrible project. We will be soliciting signatures throughout Oakley over the next three weeks. This is very similar to the petition just run by residents of Knox Lane for the same reasons. But we do need and ask for the residents’ support for our petition. Discovery Builders is trying to put 76 homes on less than 14 acres at Laurel and Rose, just east of Laurel Ball Fields, and not even add anything to Laurel Ball Fields. This project is way too dense for Oakley, is badly designed, will create bad traffic problems and an unsafe neighborhood. It should be zoned Single Family Medium at most. The council refused to provide the residents a planning commission hearing, and instead had the zoning vote at its first hearing on Sept. 22, 2009. Over 100 people appeared to oppose the project; no resident spoke in favor of it other than the council itself. The mayor refused to read our verbatim comments into the record. All five councilmembers told us that it was too late to change the project. Yet this was the very first hearing we were ever given. We were and remain shocked at the cavalier and disrespectful attitude of the council and city staff toward us. We invite the public to see it online. Just Google “Oakley archives Rosewood” and go to the various councilmember comments to see

for yourself. On Oct. 13, 2009, we appeared for the required second vote on the rezone and all but one of us were denied a chance to speak at all. The one was only allowed to speak after a heated exchange with the mayor. Again the council voted to proceed. Check Oakley Archives; this meeting will be online very shortly. Under the law we must proceed by petition or give up. With the public’s support, we can keep Oakley a nice small town without the crowding we all tried to move away from. Please support the petition. If you want to help, please e-mail stoprosewood@sbcglobal.net. Brad Nix, Ann Corridon, Denise Morford, Debbie Retzloff, and many more Oakley residents

Hospice serves community, depends on community Editor: On Nov. 8 at Veterans Park in Brentwood, corner of Balfour and Griffith, the annual Hospice Tree of Lights tree lighting ceremony will be held. This free event is open to the public and will start at 5 p.m. Hospice of the East Bay is a not-forprofit, local agency that has provided medical, emotional and practical support for the past 32 years. Our specialized programs include Comfort for Kids, serving the emotional and practical needs of children with a life-threatening illness and the children and teens of our adult hospice patients. Additionally, our Footsteps program pro-

vides group grief counseling and support available to any child in the community. Our Bruns House inpatient facility features six private bedrooms, 24-hour nursing care, physicians in attendance or on call around the clock, and unlimited visiting hours for family, friends and pets. Since our founding in 1977, we have served more than 15,500 patients and their families, and we take pride in the ability to serve them regardless of their insurance or financial status. The Tree of Lights is a way for families to celebrate and memorialize the lives of their friends and loved ones. This year, 15 trees throughout Contra Costa will be part of this annual commemoration, including the four beautiful redwood trees at the entrance to Brentwood’s Veterans Park. By making a suggested donation of a minimum of $20, people can honor their loved ones while also raising funds for patient care. Because a full array of services is offered to patients and families, regardless of their ability to pay, Hospice of the East Bay is dependent on community donations to support our programs. We thank you for being part of that support. We would also like to thank the local veterans’ organizations that unanimously gave their approval of our presence in their park and support of the work we do. Jeff Schults Brentwood

DBPOA a bargain at twice the price Editor: The residents of Discovery Bay should not be shortsighted when considering the

proposed modest increase in dues to the DBPOA. The DBPOA is the only body charged with enforcing the provisions of the CC&Rs and with the responsibility for protecting our quality of life and property values by requiring homeowners to maintain their properties, not create nuisances and not take actions which adversely affect their neighbors’ views and enjoyment of their properties. Unfortunately there are many DB residents who, in the absence of the DBPOA’s enforcement of the CC&Rs, would take actions which obstruct their neighbor’s view of the water, fail to maintain their yards and allow their properties to become eyesores littered with old cars, trailers, motorhomes and other detritus. Others would create nuisances with noise and lights, keeping neighbors awake at night. It is often dangerous to confront neighbors about such problems and prohibitive to institute lawsuits against those who violate our CC&Rs. The DBPOA does both on our behalf. We have owned property in DB since 1989 and our dues have never increased. It is certainly reasonable to pay another $25 per year for protections such as this. Suggesting that the DBPOA stop placing liens on homes and refrain from suing homeowners – as was done in a recent postcard sent to all homeowners – could destroy our community as an upscale, desirable place to live.

Antioch Panthers maul Liberty Lions by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

Liberty High’s football game Friday night had an eerie feeling of déjà vu all over again. Last year after an OK 2-3 preseason, the wheels fell off when the Lions faced league opponents, beginning with Antioch, which beat them 49-14. This year, after a better than OK 3-1-1 preseason, the wheels again fell off for the Lions in league action, this time in a 47-3 loss to Antioch. As the score indicates, the Panthers dominated in all phases of the game, beginning with an offensive line that opened holes for Antioch’s powerful, swift running backs, and a defensive line that squelched the Lions’ running game, pressured the quarterback and forced several fumbles and interceptions. The blowout was unexpected because Antioch came into the game with a 2-3 preseason record and had lost 14-28 to Oakmont the previous week. But a good week of practice translated into a clicking-on-allcylinders night for the Panthers, who could do no wrong. “I thought we played well,” said Antioch Head Coach Randy Autentico in an understatement. “They made some mistakes

and they helped us. But we took advantage of them. We’ve been on the other end of that for two or three games in the preseason – for once we were the beneficiaries. That was nice. “I thought our kids played, so far this season, probably the most complete game. So we’re happy for them. Now it gets tougher. Every week will be tougher and tougher. We have to get better because everybody that we play – it will be like climbing the ladder. I just hope that we can keep playing like we’re playing – not make mistakes where we beat ourselves – and take advantage of the other team’s mistakes.” Perhaps no one was more surprised at the lopsided loss than Liberty Head Coach Nate Smith, who had been expecting a close game. “There’s no way to see this one coming,” he said. “We played well (in the preseason). I think we just kind of expected that that would happen again tonight. You have to give Antioch a ton of credit. Antioch especially up front did a heck of a job against us. They have got a few tremendous running backs. We had trouble keeping up with that.”

Deer Valley volleyball wins again and again by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

The Deer Valley High girls volleyball team beat Freedom 3-0 last week, but to listen to both coaches afterward, you might think it was the Falcons who were victorious. “They dug a lot of balls,” said Deer Valley Coach Lou Panzella. “I thought they played really well, and made us not look so good at times. We had more unforced errors than we’d like to have; we missed a lot of serves. But maybe some of that was because we were forced to try to serve tougher to score points. I thought Freedom did a really good job tonight. I thought they played really well. Defensively they just frustrated us. Our (hitters) took some really good swings and the ball just kept coming back. So good for Freedom; bad for us. Good job by them.” Freedom Coach Erin Smedley said, “I’m really happy with how my girls played. Deer Valley is obviously the top team in the area, not to mention our league. And I’m just happy we hung with them the first two games. We played great – really happy.” All three games were fairly close. Freedom dropped one point per game as the

match ensued, losing 25-21, 25-20 and 2519. For one brief, shining moment the Falcons were up 9-8 in the second game before the Wolverines took command on kills by Sandra Foster and Kara Stark and strong

serving by Tasia Kwa, who takes four running steps, tosses the ball high and leaps in the air to smash it over the net. Stark ended up with a team-high 11 kills and also notched 14 digs. Kwa wound

up with 15 service points, six aces, 10 kills and 16 digs. Foster scored seven kills and made 11 digs. Helping make all of those kills possible was Keesh Tolentino’s 34 assists. The win kept Deer Valley perfect at 80 in league play and 11-6 overall. The Wolverines, who won the league title last year, look like they’re on course to repeat. But Panzella, while acknowledging it’s been a very good season so far, isn’t counting his kills before they’re smashed. “We’ve got a lot of play to go yet,” he said. Smedley wasn’t sure of her league record, but thought it might be 4-8 after the Deer Valley loss. “I do wish we were winning more games, especially the close ones,” she said. “I’m happy that we’re starting to take more teams to four than we have in the past. So we are winning more games. We took a game off Heritage; we took a game off Liberty both times we played them – things we haven’t done in the past. “So we are definitely improving as a team on the whole, which I’m definitely happy to see. I just hope that that plays out true for the future and we can continue to improve and eventually win in five. I think it would be a huge plus.”

Roddy ropes Patriots plundered by Pirates in Diablo cup by Kenny Lee Correspondent

It was Senior Night for the Pittsburg Pirate Marching Show Band on Oct. 16, when the Heritage Patriots faced a surging Pittsburg squad that marked the start of Bay Valley Athletic League play for both teams. But the Pirates were clearly ready to start faster than the Patriots, evidenced by the final score: Pirates 46, Patriots 20. Junior QB Julius Mozee threw for four TDs for the second straight week, and Pittsburg broke half a dozen plays of 20 yards or more in the first half alone. Mozee connected with senior wideout Robert Jiles on a 44-yard “go” pattern on the Pirates’ opening possession, giving them a 7-0 lead just over two minutes into the game. After holding Heritage to a punt, the Black and Orange needed only 16 seconds to double the lead, as senior RB Alex Foster found daylight down the right sideline and rumbled 52 yards to paydirt. Heritage got things going on its third possession in a balanced attack on a seven-play, 2:29 drive that resulted in a hard-earned five-yard touchdown for junior RB Kruger Story. The big play of the drive was a pass from junior Brent Eikanas to senior DeShaun McCoy for 19 yards and a first-

Team Roddy Ranch defended its 2008 title in the recent second annual Diablo Cup Matches between Roddy Ranch and Shadow Lakes/Deer Ridge. Due to increased popularity of the Diablo Cup, each team’s roster grew from last year’s 28-man teams to 36. The two-day event featured four-ball matches (two-man best ball) played on day one (offering 18 possible points) plus singles matches played on day two (36 possible points). Day one’s four-ball competition took place at Shadow Lakes and pitted two-man teams from each club against each other. Pairings were arranged by handicap, giving participants of all abilities the chance to compete. Shadow Lakes took the four-ball matches 11½-6½. Day two’s singles competition was held at Roddy Ranch. Entering the day with a five-point lead, Team Shadow Lakes/Deer Ridge needed to win only 16 of the 36 singles matches to win the Cup, and Team Roddy Ranch needed 20½ to keep the cup and 21 to win it. In an exciting shootout, Team Roddy Ranch won 21 of the 36 matches to come from behind and win the 2009 Diablo Cup 27½-26 ½. The one-point margin of victory was a testament to how closely matched the teams were, and how important playing singles on your home course can be. Next year’s singles will be played at Deer Ridge, and four-ball matches at Roddy Ranch. Congratulations to all the players for displaying the passion for the competition and the growing rivalry of the Diablo Cup, while exhibiting true sportsmanship in a game played without officials and referees. – Contributed by Steve Haycox

and-goal at the eight. When Pittsburg fumbled on its next possession, the Patriots gained emotion and momentum heading into the second quarter trailing 14-7. But Pittsburg held on defense, and a 33-yard punt return by Jiles set up a short field, and the Pirates instantly cashed in on a Mozee-to-Jermaine-Sims TD for a 21-7 lead. Heritage turned over its next possession on downs, and Mozee found Butler on a gorgeous screen play for a 31-yard score. Heritage tried valiantly to keep

pace with the quicker Pirates, and with 6:53 left in the half, mounted another counterattack. After three straight Story runs up the middle, McCoy swept right and weaved his way through defenders for an electrifying 49-yard TD. That proved to be the Patriots’ last best chance to catch the Pirates, as Pittsburg’s Willie Grisby returned the ensuing kickoff 57 yards to the Heritage 28-yard line. Butler bolted up the middle to the house, the Pirates took the lead 33-14 – and took the wind out of the Patriots’ sails.

2010 TRYOUTS

All-Stars take Six Flags

Diehard Baseball Academy and Diehard Baseball Club will be holding tryouts for the 2010 spring summer travel ball season on October 31st.

The Black Diamond All-Stars recently earned three firstplace and two second-place finishes at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.

Diehard offers the most comprehensive developmental program for baseball players wanting to prepare for the next level. Our practices will begin in January with the season running from February-July 2010.

Cheers for Lions

Our coaching staff is led and trained by Gary Alexander and Ron Perkins of Freedom High School. All head coaches are former professional or college players and/or coaches and many currently coach at the high school level. We are seeking players and families who understand that baseball is development first, and all coaching decisions are made by a non-biased professional instructor.

The East County Lady Lions took home five first-place and two second-place trophies at the recent Jamz Cheer Competition.

TRYOUTS ARE OCTOBER 31st 9U-10U are from 9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. 11U-12U are from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. 13U-14U are from 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Black Diamond shines

In Diehard’s 1st year the program has won multiple championships, but more importantly mentored the players through baseball development by true baseball coaches and youth service providers. We look forward to a much more impactful 2010 season.

Black Diamond Gymnastics’ Competitive Team enjoyed another successful competition at the recent Santa Cruz Sports Central.

For more information about the Diehard program and for location, please email diehardbaseballacademy@yahoo.com.

COMMUNITY

Prisoners from page 1A ing crime in recent years, said he would talk to Chief Hyde to find out how many of the released prisoners might arrive in Antioch. “I don’t know what the impact’s going to be,” said Davis. “It’s very disappointing, though, that the state’s doing that. That’s why the governor’s approval rate is 24 percent.” Brentwood Police Chief Mark Evenson doesn’t need to deal with the level of crime in Antioch, but he shares that city’s concerns. “Obviously, it’s a concern any time they have a mass release like that,” he said. “I am not saying that all of these people are going to go back and commit crime in the community. But it’s definitely a concern when you have that amount (of criminals) coming out and trying to re-enter the community. “We are just going to have to kind of, at this point, wait and see if it does impact us at all. I can understand there are issues (with overcrowding) and (state) budgetary problems. I wish there was some other way of doing it. We are

concerned, we are aware of it and we will see what happens. We are watching it closely.” Also keeping a wary eye on the situation is Oakley Police Chief Chris Thorsen. “I think there is cause for concern,” he said. “It is my experience as a career law enforcement officer that by the time somebody makes it to prison they have had numerous arrests, oftentimes several convictions, and have typically earned their way to prison. It’s not as if they haven’t gotten several chances. So that’s issue one. “Issue two is people who are in prison and are considered to be nonviolent prisoners doesn’t mean they have never committed violent acts in the past. It’s just that those are the ones we have been able to convict them on and send them away. “I am sure you will find some sociologist or some liberal somewhere saying the chief is some gun-toting, rightwing crazy man, but as a career police officer I can tell that it will be harder to get repeat offenders back into prison where they

belong. That’s probably going to make society less safe overall.” County Sheriff ’s Commander Joe Caruso is awaiting details of the prison release plan. “There’s a lot of general talk about these are people who were due to get out anyway or would be getting out shortly,” he said. “But we don’t have the finalized plan. We don’t know how far they are drilling down as to who is going to be released. We don’t have the numbers.” But Caruso is concerned that reducing overcrowding in state prisons could result in overcrowding in county jails. “What happens when those particular individuals that are let out re-offend?” he asked. “Are they going to work their way back to state prison like they currently do? If they stay in local custody for longer periods of time, that just takes us beyond our capacity. There is the potential throughout the state of California for these early releases to overwhelm the local jails, besides the potential for increased crime. For most county sheriffs, that’s our concern.”

Because the number of Town directors is temporarily three, the Brown Act provisions would be triggered by the presence of two directors (temporarily a quorum of the CSD itself) at any meeting. In last week’s story, the Press reported that the working meetings of CCS members would include only one

member of the CSD board until a full five-member CSD board is in place again. It was because of the temporary reduction in the CSD quorum that the change announced by Tetreault was made, not because of the outside legal opinion. The Press apologizes for the error.

Agenda from page 1A for the directors. “I would like to have a box put up on the gate (outside the town offices) and we’ll put two or three copies in there for the public,” said Simon. “To me, it alleviates the problem and it’s just a simple solution.” The CSD Board unanimously agreed, and plans for the placement of agenda boxes are pending. The board has also agreed to adjust the number of copies available as demand dictates. Resident Don Flint believed the time crunch posed a disadvantage for regular residents who could not get to the CSD office before closing. (The CSD Board members’ copies are delivered to their homes by staff.) In July, Flint began picking up agenda packets for upcoming meetings and posting them on a Web site as a way to provide the public with the same lead time as the board. Flint is pleased with the decision. “I appreciate Mark Simon bringing this up for board consideration,” he said. “This is a great example of the CSD listening and responding to concerns brought forward by the community. I look forward to the day when this information is posted on the Town’s Web site as well.” The drop box will be located at 1800 Willow Lake Road. For now, the packet may also be viewed on Flint’s site, www. sites.google.com/site/dbcsdagenda/.

every driver should take before

Number one on that list, according to Jeff Robidou, manager of Les Schwab Tires in Oakley, are tires. “The big item that people need to remember are their tires,” said Robidou, whose store was honored as the 2009 Business of the Year by the Oakley Chamber of Commerce. “But because of the economy, a lot of people have had to hold off on that purchase. But it’s not really something you want to do.” Jeff Renner, owner of Big O Tires on Brentwood Boulevard, agreed. Not only do tires need to be routinely checked for signs of wear and tear; they should be checked for adequate inflation. Tires can lose up to 31 pounds of pressure per month, and even if they look fine, they

Introducing

Specializing in Mercedes-Benz Service and Parts Obsidian Motors Service Department is staffed with factorytrained technicians in a state-of-the-art service center that provides high quality Mercedes-Benz repairs in Oakley. We understand how much you depend on your vehicle, so our service staff will work to get your Mercedes-Benz back on the road as soon as possible.

one-stop shop for keeping your car at its top performance level. Quick Lane, an affiliate of the Ford Motor Company, is an extension of the Bill Brandt Ford dealership, but the maintenance shop services all makes and models, and no appointment is required, so the service is convenient and flexible to your schedule regardless of the vehicle you drive. “Quick Lane service offers a 27point check system where we check everything from your brakes and tires to your filters and fluids,” said Parts and Services Director Rob Brandt. “We have factory-trained technicians who are very thorough with their work. We go over everything, and it’s all at a fair price. We try to meet or beat our competitors’ prices whenever possible.” During a Quick Lane in-depth vehicle checkup report, technicians also examine the car’s lighting system, alignment, electrical components, suspension and steering, and battery. This month Quick Lane offers a special on total maintenance inspection known as The Works Fuel Saving Package for $29.95. For more specials, visit www.quicklane.com. During the routine check, each area inspected is graded green, yellow or red. If everything comes out green, you’re good to go after your 30-minute inspection. If something is marked yellow, future maintenance might be

needed and a note goes in the vehicle’s file to check back on the problem area at the next visit. If anything gets a red grade, immediate assistance is required. Most maintenance can be handled at Quick Lane, but if an overhaul is needed, extensive repairs can be handled across the street at the Bill Brandt dealership. Since Quick Lane service lives up to its name and takes less than an hour, most customers relax in the waiting room while the inspection is completed, but a shuttle service is available if you need to get to work or back to your home. In light of the recent storms, Rob recommends routine maintenance for checking the tires, brakes and wiper blades, which should be replaced every 12 to 18 months. It’s also important to make sure all the lighting systems are functioning to help provide good visibility in bad weather. To ensure that your vehicle runs smoothly year round, Rob suggests bringing your vehicle in every six months or 5,000 miles for routine service. Quick Lane Tire and Auto Center, located at 8085 Brentwood Blvd., is open 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday; 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday. For more information, call 925-634-9900 or visit www.quicklane. com.

Rubber from page 2B could be woefully under-inflated. Signs that they may need some air include screeching sounds when you round corners, and uneven tire wear. Underinflated tires lower fuel efficiency and can result in tire stress, irregular wear and accidents. The recommended pressure is inscribed on the tire itself, but when in doubt, take your car to a mechanic or service center and have it checked out. “Most places will look at your tire pressure, brakes and tread for free. We do,” said Renner. “It’s worth it to have them checked out.” And while few local residents are ponying up for winter tires or even allterrain tires, if you don’t own a fourwheel-drive vehicle, tire chains are a good investment even if you travel to the snow only periodically. For around $70, a set of chains could mean the difference between getting through a storm or sitting it out on the side of the highway. “I don’t think I’ve ever sold a snow tire (here in Oakley),” said Robidou. “But we do sell chains and they’re a good investment. If you have a four-wheel drive you’re usually OK, but you can lose a lot of traction in the snow, and especially with ice. Chains will help you hold your ground.” In addition to the mechanics of winterizing your car, Renner said one of the most effective safety measures on the road is you: “People should use

common sense when driving. That’s the number-one thing. When it rains, slow down, even if you drive an SUV with big tires. When the weather is bad, you can lose friction on the road.

Muscle from page 1B “Most of our customers are 40-to-60-year-old guys who had these cars, or cars like them, in high school and they want to relive that time,” said Keefer. “A lot of these cars are modified, and what they (owners) end up with are cars that will look like a factory model, but with better mileage and performance. And they’re much safer. It’s the best of both worlds.” A world that Keefer knows well. As a teen, he became hooked on cars while working on a variety of models with his dad, but he saved the best project for himself. “I had the fastest car in high school (a 1970 Mach 1 Mustang),” he laughed. And while it was always in the back of his mind to own and operate a custom shop, it took Keefer a while to get there. He opted first for a 25-year career in the auto industry, including working as a BMW mechanic. But as he began to see the dealerships slowly downsizing due to the dwindling economy, he figured the time was right to take the plunge. Today, Keefer maintains four full-time employees and a customer waiting list. He’s an ASA master certified mechanic and holds a degree in automotive technology. He’s won multiple awards for design and builds, and has personally built and owned several cars featured on the covers of custom-car magazines. Passing on his knowledge has made for a thriving business and satisfied customers. “The timing just ended up being good, and I’m glad we did it,” said the Discovery Bay resident. “We love what we do

here, and we bring an understanding of how it all works, how all the pieces come together. And that’s really the hardest part because everything affects everything else. It’s not like working on a new Camry, where you just order a stock water pump and put it in. It can get pretty complicated.” Keefer recalled a recent customer who brought in his 1968 Firebird and a bag of engine parts. Figuring it would be a fairly simple job, Keefer got a surprise when he put it up on the lift.

There’s nothing like seeing the face of a customer who gets a look at his finished product. – Steve Keefer “I immediately saw that the car was completely unsafe, full of suspension problems and other issues, and I told him that if I couldn’t fix it completely for him I wasn’t going to work on it,” said Keefer. “There are some cars I will refuse to work on if the customer won’t allow us to make it safe. In the end, the owner agreed and we did it up right.” Making it right can be expensive, but most of these custom

cars are more than a passing interest; they’re a passion. “All the wives hate me because their husbands end up spending all their money in here,” laughed Keefer, who said a client can spend anywhere from $1,000 to $100,000 on a custom classic. “But for these guys, it’s their hobby, it’s what they spend their money on.” And because it can be an expensive undertaking, Keefer urges prospective clients to do their homework. “People should make sure that the company is properly licensed and insured. They should make sure to get references and to talk to some past customers,” he said. “And take a look at the work; that’s your proof of customer satisfaction.” Keefer also cautioned customers to check out the facilities to make sure there are proper security alarms and measures in place to ensure that your car is safe for the time it’s on the property. And finally, “Visit your car,” he said. “A lot of businesses don’t like customers to just pop in and check on their progress, but I encourage it. It’s your car and your investment. You have a right to see what’s going on. “Every car is unique, and that’s part of what I love about this job. There’s nothing like seeing the face of a customer who gets a look at his finished product. It brings people back to their youth, and that’s a great feeling.” East Bay Muscle Cars is located at 560 Valdry Court, Unit B4 in Brentwood.

Vitamin D-efense guards against flu Several studies and articles published this year assert that vitamin D plays an important role in the prevention of respiratory infections such as the cold and flu. A study by vitamin D expert Dr. John Cannell published by the Cambridge University Press Journal of Epidemiology and Infection showed evidence that lower vitamin D blood levels during the winter can account for the increased transmissibility of the influenza virus. Increased levels of vitamin D can help prevent traditional influenza infections by strengthening the immune system. Mushrooms are the only fresh fruit or vegetable that naturally con-

tain vitamin D. A 2009 analysis of the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III) also suggests a role for vitamin D in innate immunity, including the prevention of respiratory tract infections. The study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, examined the vitamin D levels and respiratory infections of nearly 19,000 participants and discovered that those with the lowest vitamin D levels were 33 percent more likely to report contracting a recent upper-respiratory-tract infection than those with higher levels of vitamin D.

There’s always time to treat yourself Women across the country are meeting the demands of busy schedules and tightened wallets by setting aside life’s simple pleasures and putting themselves at the bottom of the to-do list. A new survey commissioned by the makers of Edwards frozen desserts finds that more than nine in 10 American women have cut back on indulgences during the past year. The survey found that 94 percent of American women in the study admit that they don’t indulge or treat themselves as often as they’d like because other people or commitments come first; 56 percent say they don’t treat themselves as often as they’d like because they can’t afford to; and 32 percent say they have less free time than they did a year ago. Heather Reider and Mary Goulet, founders of MomsTown.com and hosts of MomsTown Radio, know a thing or two about the challenges of juggling a family and career while making the time to treat themselves. “Self-pampering may seem like the last thing on your mind these days,” says Reider, “but treating yourself to something special is so critical to relieving the stress of everyday life.” Reider and Goulet share these tips and strategies for effortless and affordable ways to celebrate everyday indulgences:

The silent treatment Home phones, cell phones, e-mail, instant messaging, pagers and the multiple ways you get pinged when you turn on the computer, can be overwhelming. Power off that technology and take a 15- to 30-minute scheduled timeout.

Bring nature indoors Cultivate a container garden – a window box, urn, basket or round fishbowl.

For a fabulous display of nature indoors, use a Bonsai plant, an orchid, a robust green plant, herbs, or layer two kinds of tulips.

Back to basics Put yourself at the top of the to-do list every once in a while. Simple indulgences such as an Edwards Singles Á La Modes dessert are a quick and easy way to treat yourself to something sweet, as well as fill your kitchen with a delicious home-baked aroma.

Essential essence Aromatherapy sachets placed in drawers are a sensational way to feel good without doing or spending much. If you’re looking for an energizing scent, try citrus, peppermint or bergamot. To take the stress down a few notches, choose lavender, chamomile, sandalwood or ylang-ylang.

Budding beauty Go to your local farmers’ market or grocery store and buy a bouquet of flowers. When you get home, break the flower bunch apart into single stems, place the flowers in bud vases and distribute them around the house. When you walk around your home you’ll be greeted with flowers wherever you go. And you did it with just one bouquet.

Hit your funny bone When it comes to our emotions, it’s really hard to multi-task. It’s nearly impossible to be sad and exuberant in the same exact moment. You deserve to laugh, so choose more moments to get a giggle in your day. Read something funny or rent a funny movie. While life is full of stressful moments, the benefits of taking time to rejuvenate and unwind can make a remarkable difference. – Courtesy of Family Features

Husband carries on Antioch author’s work Antioch author Carol Tillotson’s first novel, “The Legend of Round Valley,” is a thriller about three couples on a romantic vacation that takes a dark twist, leaving the couples in a struggle for their very survival. Little did Tillotson know that she’d be in her own struggle for survival, fighting for her life as she completed the book. After Tillotson’s passing, her husband Don kept her memory and dreams alive by fulfilling her final wish – to share her romantic thriller with the world. Struggling with love, hate, trust and betrayal, the close friends experience the darker side of human nature. “The Legend

of Round Valley” examines the deepest components of friendship and forces readers to reflect on their own relationships and experiences. The novel keeps readers anxious and on edge, anticipating the final fate of the couples. Perhaps with an intuitive feeling about the author’s mortality, the novel emphasizes how precious life is – and how it can be taken away at a moment’s notice. “I want to honor my wife and her memory,” said Don. “She was so proud of her book, and I want the world to share in the exciting story she spent her final days crafting.”

New book dramatizes adoption Brentwood author Carol Linden takes the reader on the adventures of her adopted daughters, Susie Q and Cherie’ Tamu, in her new story, “Susie Q, Is That Your Sister?” published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises. Growing up, the girls were often asked if they were sisters. Susie always said, “Of course! Don’t you think we look alike?” Happy to be both sisters and best friends, the girls – portrayed in the story as a white kitten and a brown bunny – learn the meaning of family and have plenty of fun in a whimsical, lighthearted tale with a relevant message.

Linden is a mother of four: an adopted son, two adopted daughters and a biological son. “Susie Q, Is That Your Sister?” is available at bookstores nationwide. It can also be ordered online at www.barnesandnoble.com, www.amazon.com or www. target.com. “Susie Q, Is That Your Sister?” is also an eLIVE title, meaning each printed copy contains a code redeemable for a free audio version from TatePublishing.com.
