Diehard weeds still flourish by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Proliferation of the ergia densa weed has been significantly reduced in the waters of Discovery Bay since the Department of Boating and Waterways (DBW) began efforts to eradicate the Delta pests late last spring. But in neighboring Bethel Island, where the weeds continue to run amok, the situation is less rosy. “We’re feeling a little neglected out here,” said Clark Fratus, who owns property on Dutch Slough. “And in the past six months it’s only gotten worse. The vines grow up from the bottom, crawl up the sides of the levies and wrap themselves around the boat props. It feels like a never-ending battle.”

Fratus is only one of an increasing number of frustrated Bethel Islanders struggling to keep the weeds – which include the egeria densa, water hyacinths and other persistent plants – at bay while lobbying to grab the attention of anyone who will listen. Last spring, Supervisor Mary Piepho held a town meeting on Bethel Island in which Fratus said she contended that the Department of Boating and Waterways would be tackling the weed situation, but only in the most needy locations. Those locations, according to Fratus, included only Discovery Bay. “When I asked Mrs. Piepho about Dutch Slough,” said Fratus in an e-mail to The Press, “she said, ‘Well, you should resee Weeds page 17A

Delta weeds such as these along a property owner’s dock on Dutch Slough are taking over portions of Bethel Island. Residents are lobbying to get the Department of Boating and Waterways and other local agencies to help eradicate the weeds, as was the case in Discovery Bay last spring.

Bell Game takes its toll

ADA changes cause service-animal dispute by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Photo courtesy of Jenny Kuban

Brentwood resident Jenny Kuban, shown here with her service dog, says her ADA rights were recently violated by local officials who were unaware of the new laws regarding service animals.

Service animals in public venues are common sights these days in restaurants, movie theaters and sporting events. But when one Brentwood resident recently brought her service dog to Heritage High School, the ordinary took an extraordinary turn. “I was sitting in the stands near the football field watching my boys practice,” said Jenny Kuban, who is hearing impaired. “When I was approached (by school staff) and told that there was a no-dog policy on campus, I explained that my dog was a service animal. He then asked me for her certificate and vest and I told him that I was not required to have this.” The conversation continued to escalate, the police arrived, district officials got involved and according to Kuban, she was told to leave the premises despite her insistence that she was legally in the right. ADA (Americans With Disabilities Act) rules had changed, she said, and service animals are no longer required to wear identifying vests or be accompanied by certifications.

“I explained that they needed to check the ADA and that what they were doing was against the law and discriminatory,” said Kuban. It turns out she was right. In March of this year, the ADA issued new regulations pertaining to service animals and their owners’ rights. “The public may not require documentation, such as proof that the animal has been certified, trained or licensed as a service animal,” according to the ADA. Coincidentally, said LUHSD Superintendent Eric Volta, the district has recently been working on revisions to its own policies as they apply to the ADA, and those changes were expected to be presented to the board this week. As for Kuban’s situation, Volta doesn’t believe her rights were violated. “Obviously there was an exchange of words between the district and Ms. Kuban,” said Volta. “But we don’t believe she was discriminated against because she and her service animal were

Quick action saves Oakley teen Nominate

top citizen, business

by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

At one time or another we’ve all wondered: how would I react in an emergency? Would I hold up under the pressure? Would I know what to do? Would my efforts even make a difference? Vicki Simmons and Patrick James recently had the chance to find out, and an Oakley teenager is alive as a result. On Oct. 27, approximately 200 yards into a four-minute run, James – a PENA P.E. teacher at O’Hara Park Middle School in Oakley – was watching his students when he noticed something strange. “I looked up and saw the class standing around in a circle looking at something on the ground,” said James. “I didn’t know if it was an animal or what, so I jogged on out to the field.” What he saw was 13-year-old Ignacio Pena lying motionless, face down on the grass. As James knelt beside Ignacio, he realized the boy wasn’t

After gently shaking him and repeatedly calling his name yet receiving no response, James called 911. He then told one of his students to go get Simmons, the school’s other P.E. teacher – and the rescue ef-

Street Feast marshals thankful army by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

The Richardson family, owners of Willy’s Bagels and Blends in Brentwood, has once again partnering with other local businesses, community organizations and charities to host the community Thanksgiving festival Street Feast. and Blends in partnership with Cornerstone Fellowship and a multitude of other local businesses, charities and community groups, drew a crowd of more than 400 in its first year, and Richardson has set this year’s goal at 1,000 guests. The more the merrier. Since Richardson hopes to bring in 120 turkeys for the event, there will be plenty of

food to go around. He’s currently accepting donations at Willy’s and is tracking the donations with Turkey Count 2011. It’s only a tally maintained on a chalkboard behind the counter of the Second Street Willy’s location, but cussee Feast page 9A

After the success of the inaugural Street Feast last year, Ryan Richardson is counting his blessings that so many are supporting this year’s celebration. “Last year, we had this idea to have a big community Thanksgiving here in Brentwood and people really embraced it,” said Richardson, owner of Willy’s Bagels and Blends. “I didn’t have to go around asking for help this year. People have been coming up to me asking how they can help out. Especially the families who attended last year – they are so excited to share that community spirit with others in need.” But Street Feast is more than a free Thanksgiving meal for those in need. It’s a community celebration, a chance to gather with neighbors and give thanks. As the event is open to all, Richardson stresses that anyone looking for a place to go on Thanksgiving is welcome. If you burn the turkey, no problem. Come to Street Feast. If your flight to visit family is cancelled and you didn’t have a backup plan, no problem. Come to Street Feast. If you don’t have any friends in the area, no problem. Come to Street Feast. New this year is a pickup program to bring East County residents out to Towne Center, the Safeway shopping center on Second Street, if they have no other way of getting there. “We don’t want to exclude anyone,” Richardson said. “We’re going to have several pickup locations, and we’ll drive you out to the celebration. Especially for our senior citizens who are alone this season and don’t have their own transportation, we want to make sure they have the opportunity to share the holiday.” Street Feast, which is sponsored by Willy’s Bagels

A pair of visitors can be seen in this photo of the Rose Hill Cemetery at Black Diamond Mines. Taken in 1939 by Zelma Myrick, the photo looks east toward the Somersville town site. Mine explosions, other industrial mishaps and horse-riding accidents were the cause of many of the adults’ deaths. Accompanied by more than 600 images, including diagrams, photographs and contemporary newspaper accounts, the book gives the reader a fascinating look into the history and life of the coal towns of East Contra Costa County. “Rose Hill: A Comprehensive History of a Pioneer Cemetery” is available at the Black Diamond Visitor Center for $65. Proceeds from the sale of the book are used for the repair of gravestones in Rose Hill Cemetery.

A book published this year by the East Bay Regional Park District documents the history of Rose Hill Cemetery, now a part of Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve in Antioch. The book by Supervising Naturalist Traci Parent is based on her 30 years of research into the history of the people buried there. From the 1860s to the turn of the 20th century, Black Diamond was the site of California’s largest coal-producing region. Known as the Mount Diablo Coal Field, the area once boasted the five thriving communities of Nortonville, Somersville, Stewartville, West Hartley and Judsonville. Created in the early 1860s, Rose Hill served as a Protestant burial ground for the coal field families. Although more than 200 burials have been documented through research, it’s likely that more internments exist. Once the site of neglect and vandalism, the cemetery and many of its gravestones have been painstakingly restored over recent decades by park district rangers. The result of more than three decades of research through newspaper accounts, obituaries and family histories, “Rose Hill: A Comprehensive History of a Pioneer Cemetery” is the only comprehensive account of the people interred in the cemetery. Through the records brought together in the 1,000-plus-page book, details come to light not only of the residents’ deaths, but of their lives in the remote yet bustling coal mining communities. Accounts of town concerts, weddings and celebrations paint a picture of the lighter side of life in a time when horse-and-buggy was the common mode of transportation, and modern sewage and plumbing were not yet available in this rural community. Daily life in the mining towns was filled with challenges and hard work. The majority of the individuals interred in the cemetery are children who died from disease when epidemics swept through the area. Some of the more prevalent diseases to claim young lives were diphtheria, scarlet fever and smallpox. Advertisements and newspaper articles of the day reference cures – many of dubious efficacy. Other articles offer practical advice for limiting contagion.

Freedom grad makes cash ‘Deal’ by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Most people never wear their high school cap and gown after graduation, but 2011 Freedom High School graduate Ian Jones recently slipped into his gown one last time and walked away with $1,000. Jones, along with his father, Donald, had no idea that when they set out for Hollywood at 2:30 a.m. on July 13, Ian would return to Oakley a “Let’s Make a Deal” winner. Ian, who dressed as a geeky grad with chunky black glasses, was selected from the crowd by host Wayne Brady to play a game in which he listened to Brady rock some rhymes before deciding to make the deal or not. Based on Brady’s lyrical clues, Ian guessed there was a two-wheel motorized machine behind Door No. 1. But rather than risk it all, Ian, without hesitation, took Brady’s counter offer of $1,000 cash. The curtain was pulled back to reveal a sparkling Suzuki Boulevard S32 Cruiser motorcycle, valued at $5,099 – but Ian has no regrets. “The motorcycle was really cool, but I need the money,” said the Los Medanos College music student. “I’m in college, so some of the money can go toward that, but I want to use most of it to put toward a music studio.” An aspiring musician who dabbles in Christian-themed hip hop, Ian said the

But that didn’t mat-

ter. It seems like good things happen when I wear it.” Donald, dressed as “proud grad dad,” said it was fun to relive Ian’s win when the episode aired on Nov. 3. He looks forward to seeing his own appearance on the show, which airs on Nov. 22– though he’s sworn to secrecy about whether or not he won big

like his son. During their trip to Hollywood, Ian and Donald sat in on two tapings of “Let’s Make a Deal,” but the dynamic duo hopes this is only the beginning of their TV career. They plan to audition for “The Amazing Race” next year, and as soon as Ian turns 21, he plans to audition for “Big Brother.” “He and I are drawn to these shows and would love the experience – and love to share the experience with others,” Donald said. “The prizes are just icing on the cake.” “Let’s Make a Deal” airs on CBS.

CHECK YOUR MAIL... 4.3 million people across the U.S. are about to get an interesting piece of mail. This letter will invite people who may have been victims of “robo-signing” to have someone review their case to see if they qualify for a cash (or other) settlement. “Robo-signing” became a popular term last year when it came to light that many loan servicers were using either digital or human means to copy one person’s signature on thousands and tens of thousands of documents. This kind of thing happens all the time in the business world (like on a credit card offer you get in the mail), but in this case, the signature was supposed to mean that the signer had thoroughly reviewed all the mortgage and foreclosure documents and certified them to be accurate and complete. There were also issues with these signatures being notarized improperly. As part of a large court settlement in regards to this robo-signing issue, 14 mortgage servicers have agreed to identify customers who may have had robo-signing

Congressman Jerry McNerney recently announced the beginning of the fifth annual Holiday Cards for Our Troops program. Last year, McNerney’s office collected more than 7,000 cards from the c o m mu n i t y inscribed with personal messages of gratitude to our men and women in uniform at home and overseas. “I’ve heard how much it means to our troops when they receive notes and cards from home,” wrote McNerney in a press release. “Let’s take this time of year to make a difference for the men and women who fight so bravely to protect us and our country.” The cards are organized into packages for shipment overseas by East Bay Blue Star Moms, Pleasanton Military Families, Packed with Pride, and Summerset Veterans Club. Cards will also be sent to veterans at Bay Area VA hos-

pitals, Camp Parks, Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. and the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. To participate in the program, make or purchase a holiday card and write a message of thanks inside to a service member and deliver the card to McNerney’s office in Stockton or Pleasanton by Thursday, Dec. 15. Cards should remain unaddressed and envelopes unsealed. C a r d guidelines: • Make sure to sign your card. • Use salutations such as “Dear Service Member.” Cards addressed to specific individuals cannot be delivered through this program. • Do not include inserts such as photographs. Mail your cards to either of McNerney’s offices: • 2222 Grand Canal Blvd., Suite 7, Stockton, CA 95207 • 5776 Stoneridge Mall Road, Suite 175, Pleasanton, CA 94588.

likely that it will have staying power. “My family has decided that this is how we’re going to celebrate Thanksgiving from now on,” Richardson said. “We want to host an event for the community because they are the ones that have kept us in business all these years and we want to say thank you. We also know that a lot of people in the community have big hearts and want to help, and they don’t necessarily know the best way to do that. With Street Feast, they have a way to directly give back to the people in their community.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Something to be Thankful For In the United States, for the holiday we know as Thanksgiving, 47 million turkeys are sold annually. It is also estimated that as a nation we’ll produce 750 pounds of cranberries, 1.9 billion pounds of sweet potatoes, and 2.2 billion bushels – all of which are popular Thanksgiving side dishes – in the calendar year 2011. How and why do these numbers interact with my Mortgage Matters column you ask? Like your Thanksgiving dinner, they’re conversation starters. In the last few years this conversation has been especially grim, filled with negative facts about the real estate market or the economy in general…just what you want to hear while celebrating a meal with loved ones. Let’s change that this year. Bring to your families attention, or anyone who will listen, the newly revamped – see more lenient – Keep Your Home California Program. Founded in February 2011 and managed by the California Housing Finance Agency, the program is “really ramping up efforts to raise awareness,” according to Even Gerberding of Keep Your Home California. With $2 billion dollars of federal stimulus money allocated to assist struggling homeowners in California I’d say we better get the word out, and get it out fast. Keep Your Home California offers four unique programs for those struggling with their mortgage: They offer up to $3,000 a month for up to six months if you’re in between jobs, they offer between $15,000-

$20,000 for those who are behind on their mortgage payments and need to be caught up, they offer up to $50,000 in principal reduction – based on a dollar for dollar matching system with your lender so the reduction could be up to $100,000 – and they offer financial aid for moving/relocation costs as a last resort. The program is already in place with over 40 lenders – their website lists which banks are currently participating with Keep Your Home California – in an effort to ensure these programs are actually put to use, and not just discussed during dinner feasts like Thanksgiving. So, before grabbing a second serving of the 2.2 billion bushels America produced this year, pick up the phone and grab a serving of the $2 billion dollars California has received to aid ailing homeowners. Scheduled to stay fresh much longer than any leftovers – any money not used by 2017 goes back to the federal government – a call to 888.954.KEEP (5337) or visit to www. keepyourhomecalifornia.org could just turn out to be more fulfilling than that once a year Thanksgiving dinner conversation with Uncle what’s his name. *Enjoy Thanksgiving and the time with your loved ones. Regardless of your home’s financial standing, your family will always stand by you.* As always, I welcome all questions and or concerns pertaining to real estate lending on my cell phone, 925-726-1444 or via email, tfreymortgages@yahoo.com. – Advertisement

CCC history project seeks intern help

REZ volunteers and residents of Avalon Vineyards Group Home take a breather following a day of hard work and fellowship.

Wear my what to church? Resurrection Ministries Church (“REZ”) in Brentwood recently held its third annual Servant Day – also known as Wear Your Grubs to Church Day – in which members went out into the local community and performed services such as painting, window washing, yard work and cooking for families in need. “Over 140 members participated this year,” said Patti Ryland, one of 17 Servant Day team leaders. “The goal is to show God’s love for all people and serve the community in which we live.” Several REZ members spent months organizing the event and developing work orders to service needs in Brent-

wood, Oakley and Discovery Bay. Work orders included moving an elderly couple, handyman work and landscaping at schools affected by budget cuts. Following their day of service, the teams met back at the church for dinner to share stories. “In these ongoing economic challenges, families and the community at large still struggle to make ends meet,” said Ryland. “Contributing in this small way can make a big difference for those who are in need.” One recipient of services was the Avalon Vineyards Group Home in Oakley. The 5-acre facility is home for six developmentally disabled young adults.

The facility was in desperate need of landscaping and other external “tender loving care,” said Ryland. “I had an awesome team of 14,” she added. “Yes, we worked hard, but the best part of the day was taking breaks with the residents. The joy on their faces and in their voices was the most rewarding part of the whole day. I can’t wait to do this again next year.” Precision Landscaping and Hamilton Tree Service contributed resources, tools and supplies to complete the job. Resurrection Ministries is located at 1275 Fairview Ave. in Brentwood. For more information, visit www. resurrection-brentwood.org.

The Contra Costa County Historic Landmarks Advisory Committee, under the auspices of the Contra Costa County Historical Society, is updating its Historic Resource List (HRL). Students from the Contra Costa Community College District campuses are encouraged to apply to help. Students with an interest in California and local history will find this experience rewarding. The internship consists of work such as updating the HRL, visiting and photographing historical sites, researching documents, and updating ownership and condition reports. Historical Society staff, under the guidance of academic instructors, supervises all work. Potential academic credit, but no compensation, is available at this time. Interns must provide their own transportation.

Veterans Day blast from the past by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer

About 200 people came together to honor our nation’s veterans with a ceremony that ended with a bang. Three bangs, to be precise. The shots rang out from a trio of Civil War cannons provided by American Civil War Association member Richard Lawrence and a cadre of re-enactors. The explosions, reportedly heard as far away as downtown Brentwood, punctuated the largest Veterans Day event yet in Veterans Park. Mayor Bob Taylor thanked the large crowd for braving a cold drizzle and said they represented a cross-section of what’s good about America. He drew a round of applause by suggesting that anyone not appreciating the freedom that veterans had provided were free to leave. “And there’s a few of us out here that would be happy to help you pack your bags,” he added. Those who stayed – everyone – heard a trio of veterans describe what their service had meant to them. Coast Guard Commander Sean Kelly, Sr. (of the VFW); Cmdr. Mike Clement (American Legion) and Commandant Don Hester (Marine Corps League) offered their perspectives. Kelly said his own appreciation for see Veterans page 15A

There was no fear, it was just ‘let’s get it done.’ Everyone handled themselves perfectly and professionally.” Once the crisis had passed, the reality of the situation sunk in. “I didn’t even really think about it or get emotional at the time,” said Simmons. “But once it was over, I kind of lost it.” And while Simmons and James agree it was definitely not a businessas-usual day on campus, they are reluctant to accept the title of “hero.” “It was emotional; I was emotional,” said James. “But I just did what the

But at Press time, he was recovering in the hospital, eating and drinking on his own and beginning to communicate more readily with his doctors and family. Although his prognosis remains guarded, Ignacio’s eldest sister, Yanin Solis, said the family remains optimistic and hopeful. “He’s doing good; he is much better,” she said. “He’s talking a little bit more and he looks good.” In the meantime, Ignacio’s five siblings are being cared for in their Oakley home by an aunt, while his mother remains with him at the hospital. The Oakley school community has come together to establish an account in Ignacio’s name at the Bank of the West in Oakley. A fundraiser for the family is also being planned.

Thwarting holiday criminals The busy holiday season is here, and with it come increased opportunities for criminals. Like police everywhere, the Oakley Police Department urges citizens to be cautious during the holiday shopping season. Amid the distractions and activity, it’s easy to forget the basics of maintaining safety while shopping and at home. Opportunity is the criminal’s key to success. By staying alert and following a few guidelines, your holiday season can remain happy, safe and festive. Slam shut the criminal’s window of opportunity by being aware of your surroundings and potential areas of danger. When storing gifts, view them as cash – because that’s how a criminal sees them. Theft around the holidays is preventable. Here are crime prevention tips to keep you and your possessions safe: When Shopping • Stay alert, and be aware of your surroundings. • Trust your instincts. If you feel uncomfortable with a place or person, get away. • Park in a well-lit area. • Always lock your vehicle. • Minimize the number of valuables left in your vehicle. • Keep valuables, electronics and gifts and other theft attractors out of sight. • Protect your purse or wallet and clear out unnecessary items. • Don’t carry large amounts of cash or extra credit cards. • Never leave your purse, wallet or cell phone unattended in a public place. • Shop with someone. There is safety in numbers. • Discuss with your children what they should do in the event you are separated. • Get your keys out and ready when you return to your vehicle. • Don’t leave your vehicle unattended with the motor running. At Home • Install secondary locks on all doors and windows – and use them. • Keep a master list of all credit cards and other valuables somewhere secure at home. • Place lights in dark areas and entrances. • Place gifts where they can’t be seen from the outside. • Avoid opening the door to strangers. • Investigate charities before donating. • Make online purchases only from trusted, secure websites. • When traveling, use timers for lights and radios while you’re away. Ask a trusted friend, neighbor, or Neighborhood Watch member to watch your home. After the holidays • Pay close attention to bills and report unauthorized charges. • Photograph and record the serial numbers of new items and add them to your inventory. To report suspicious activity or get a question answered, call Oakley Dispatch at 925-625-8060.

Public input helped build City Hall Editor: I am responding to Pearl Stredni’s letter regarding our new City Hall structure. It is important to honor each and every individual’s right to hold an opinion. But let’s get the facts straight. Her statement that Brentwood residents “did not have an input on this huge project” is grossly in error of the truth. I attended three town hall meetings in which many aspects of the project were discussed and input given by the public. These meetings were widely published and well attended. I know without a single doubt that our ideas were incorporated into the overall master plan because I see them in the soon-to-be finished buildings and park. She also misstates that the buildings are “too big and look out of place with all the other surroundings.” This is architecturally and artistically erroneous. I was part of several public committees that went to great lengths to incorporate the surrounding architecture, color schemes and overall town feeling into the new buildings. It is my opinion that these structures are successful in meeting the goals set forth by Brentwood residents. Greg Ruiz Brentwood

Livermore has more Editor: My wife and I drove through downtown Livermore yesterday and we were amazed on how wonderful their old town was. Not only was it beautiful; it was thriving. Our next thought was what a shame that Brentwood didn’t follow suit. Years ago, I commented in a letter to the editor on how the City of Brentwood should pattern their planning after Los Gatos in designing a quaint downtown and now I am holding Livermore up as an even better example. But oh no, instead, our city erects a huge Taj Mahal

Homecoming heroes Editor: On behalf of the 2011-12 Leadership class, I would like to thank the following businesses and individuals for their continuous support of the Liberty High School Leadership Class and the traditions that make Brentwood what it is. Without such community support, the tradition of excellence and community involvement, as represented through the annual Homecoming Parade, could not continue. First, we would like to thank His & Hers Formal Wear, located in Brentwood, for providing the tuxedos that our Homecoming Court princes wore during the rally, parade, game and dance. His & Hers Formal Wear owner Annette Beckstrand has been a supporter of Liberty endeavors since the opening of her business, and we couldn’t do it without her. A new but important sponsor of this year’s Homecoming was Elements Salon in Discovery Bay. The stylists at Elements generously donated their services to this year’s Homecoming Court princesses, providing hair and makeup for the rally and parade. We hope to continue our relationship with Elements in the upcoming years and thank it for all the beautiful work. Throughout the school year, Delta Fence generously donates fencing for dances, academy events, and most recently, Homecoming. Delta Fence has provided fencing for the Liberty Homecoming float building, parade and dance for the last 10 years. The owners and employees of Delta Fence exhibit the kind of giving back that makes this community great. Special thanks go out to Brentwood Florists and Gifts, which generously donated the flowers for this year’s festivities. The annual Revealing of the Red Rose

could not have occurred without its generous donation. We are grateful for the support of Brentwood Florists and Gifts. Without the assistance of the Brentwood Police Department, the yearly Homecoming festivities would not be a possibility. Though the department is busy with its own endeavors, the officers generously take time out of their schedule to assist in the preparation and execution of the annual parade. In recent years, Diggers Diner has been a continual source of support for Liberty Leadership. It has hosted the breakfasts for the Homecoming Court as well as Mr. Liberty and Liberty Idol contestants. This donation went above and beyond the expectation and is very much appreciated. Additionally, we would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for the time and effort on our behalf: Bill Brandt Ford for its donation of convertibles for the parade; Ronnie Boyce and the LHS Maintenance Department for their tireless efforts on behalf of Liberty; Wayne Reeves for procuring lights for float building; Manny Lopez, Jesse Ortega and Cindy Powell for serving as float judges; Curtis Cunningham for serving as our parade announcer within Ohmstead Field; and finally, to Ana Gutierrez for serving as our mistress of ceremonies at the Homecoming Parade. Thanks to the following downtown Brentwood businesses that allowed Liberty students to decorate the storefronts along the parade route, spreading Liberty spirit throughout the city: Book Busters, Brentwood Emporium, Brentwood Press, Brentwood Taxes, Co. Co. County Wine Company, Crème de la Gem, Delta Cinema, The Game, His & Hers Formal Wear, Jose’s Barber Shop, Kendall Automotive, Little Miss Everything, Love for Learning, MJs downtown, Sunflower Antiques, and WR Properties. The Liberty Homecoming tradition continues because of the support of the Liberty Union High School District employees and Board of Trustees, as well as the administration of Liberty High School – Pat Walsh, Sara Branstetter, Ilene Foster, Sandra Guardado and Matt LaFleur. I hope that the community of Brent-

wood enjoyed this year’s Homecoming festivities and will continue to join us in the years to come. Homecoming is a tradition that distinguishes Brentwood from its neighbors and reminds us all of why we live here. Go, Lions! Summer Rodriguez Director of Student Activities Liberty High School

Thanks go out to all the ladies who played golf and the local Discovery Bay and Brentwood businesses that sponsored golf holes or generously made donations: Discovery Bay Country Club; Service Painting; US Bank, Discovery Bay Safeway; Home Care Inc.; La Playa Boutique and Tanning Salon; Harvest Park Bowl; Dr. Michael Todorovic, DDS; Athena’s Hair Studio; Liberty Dental; Winslow Research Institute; Surdez Insurance Service; Kaleidoscope; Lone Tree Golf and Event Center; Sue Emmett, trainer; The Golf Club at Roddy Ranch; Brentwood Yoga Center; Trader Joe’s; Discovery Bay Chiropractic and Sport Center; Glenn Hoffman, State Farm; and Craig Willams.

Heritage volleyball enjoys playoff success by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

It hasn’t been easy, but the Heritage High girls volleyball team has trudged along through the North Coast Section playoffs. After the sixth-seeded Patriots dispatched the tournament’s No. 11 seed, Castro Valley, Heritage advanced to upset No. 3 seed California on Saturday in four sets: 23-25, 26-24, 2521, 25-18. Senior setter Chelsey Hancock was credited with 45 assists, 18 digs, three aces and five blocks. Senior outside hitter Savannah Shelton made 16 kills and eight digs. Sophomore outside hitter Colleen Hannigan also had a great night, coming up with 23 kills and 10 digs. Prior to that game, the Patriots clawed back to defeat Castro Valley. Heritage won 25-18 and 25-17 in the first two games, then lost games three and four by scores of 25-19. The Patriots edged out the Trojans in the final match 15-13. Hancock recorded 25 assists, 13 digs and four blocks. Shelton contributed 13 kills, five digs and four blocks. The Patriots hosted second-seeded San Ramon Valley on Wednesday.

first game of Saturday’s second-round matchup against top-seeded Foothill, but the No. 8 Wolverines dropped the next three games 25-11, 2512 and 25-22. Senior outside hitter Marissa Malone had an outstanding night for Deer Valley, notching 14 kills and eight digs. Junior setter Megan Santos made 29 assists and nine digs. In the first round, the Wolverines started tentatively against No. 9 Irvington, but redeemed themselves. Deer Valley bounced back from a slow start to topple visiting the Vikings in four games – 20-25, 25-13, 25-16 and 25-12. Malone notched 14 kills and 12 digs; junior outside hitter Chanelle Washington made five kills and 12 digs; and Santos finished with 28 assists.

Bell Trophy stays at Freedom for sixth straight year by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

It didn’t take long for Freedom to reestablish its dominance in what has been a one-sided rivalry with Liberty. The Falcons scored twice in the first five minutes of Thursday’s game and never looked back in a 34-10 victory over the Lions in the 14th annual Bell Game. This is the sixth year in a row that Freedom has earned the right to keep the Bell Trophy, and the team is 10-4 when squaring off against Liberty. “We had our ups and downs,” head coach Kevin Hartwig said, “but at the end of the day, we just sucked it up and made some big plays.” Freedom advances to the North Coast Section playoffs on Friday to host California. The Falcons are the eighthseeded team in the bracket; the Grizzlies are the ninth seed. The regular season finale was not, however, without its adversity for the Falcons (9-1, 4-1 Bay Valley Athletic League). In the second quarter, junior quarterback Dante Mayes hurt his right knee on a one-yard run and did not return. Senior receiver Stephen Rodriguez, Freedom’s quarterback in the team’s 2009 Bell Game victory, took over under center

Rodriguez had a rough second quarter, but got into a groove in the second half, finishing 6-for-9 passing for 89 yards and one interception. “We did it as a team effort,” Rodriguez said. “We all rallied around and kept

going.” The Lions (3-7, 1-4 BVAL) did their best to slow Freedom’s momentum. Senior halfback Joseph Canady, after a 57yard first quarter run, finished things off five plays later on a one-yard run to the

end zone. The Lions scored again right before halftime on a 35-yard field goal by senior Kyle Rainsford, but by that point Freedom had built a 24-10 lead. “I love our senior class,” Liberty head coach Nate Smith said. “I feel like they worked really hard all year. I’m really sad to see them graduate and I wish we could’ve ended on a higher note tonight.” Junior varsity Touchdowns from Nick Garcia and Joe Johnson allowed Freedom’s JV team to hold on for a 23-16 victory over Liberty. “I feel good about the season,” said Falcons head coach Don Birk. “They played really well all year long.” Liberty got solid efforts from Dan Williams and Ivan Oseguera, each of whom scored a touchdown. “I think the kids learned a lot,” Lions head coach Ramon Jackson said of his team’s season. “They found out who they were.” Freedom ended its season 8-2; Liberty 2-7. Freshmen Bell Games of the future might look more promising for Liberty, as its freshman team claimed a 34-14 victory over Freedom. For the full story, visit www.thepress.net.

hree local athletes recently signed their letters of intent to attend major Division I universities. Heritage swimmer Madison Applegate, above, who finished fifth in the 100-yard butterfly event in the 2011 North Coast Section Championship meet, has chosen to attend UCLA. Applegate, seen here shaking hands with Principal Larry Oshodi, signed the letter of intent to become a Bruin in a ceremony with her relatives, friends, teammates and coaches. She said she chose UCLA because she’s always wanted to live in Southern California. Freedom pitcher Joe Navilhon, bottom right, seen here with his mother and father, Sue and Larry, and Falcons head coach Gary Alexander, will play for Cal State Fullerton. Navilhon, whose father also pitched for the Titans, said he’s excited to become part of Fullerton’s storied baseball tradition. Navilhon held batters to a .207 batting average in 2011 and racked up a team-high 31 strikeouts. Heritage softball pitcher Lisa Rodrigues, top right, a first-team all-league selection last year, signed her letter of intent to attend the University of New Mexico. Rodrigues is pictured at the celebration with father Dan, sister Stephanie and mother Patty. Rodrigues said she chose to become a Lobo because it felt like the best choice out of the schools she considered.

East County Lions tangle with Antioch The East County Youth Football Lions Junior Midget season ended Saturday in Fairfield with an exciting but heartbreaking 25-20 loss to Deer Valley in the first round of the playoffs. The Lions responded to an opening score by Deer Valley. Quarterback Dominic Mather threw completions of 32 yards to receiver Kyle Wise and 21 yards to tight end Isaac Freytes. Nico Zanarini plunged into the end zone from two yards and Mather kicked the conversion to give the Lions an 8-6 lead. Mather hit receiver Jared Rodgers in stride for a 34-yard touchdown and the Lions took a 14-6 lead into halftime. The Lions defense – led by Ivan Collaco, Emiliano Diaz and Anthony Gripe – made a strong showing against the pesky wing offense of Deer Valley. Zanarini grinded out several tough yards, setting up a Mather quarterback sneak to set up the Junior Midget Lions with a 2019 lead into the fourth quarter. But Deer Valley scored with 12 ticks left on the clock to end the Lions’ hopes of moving on.

The Lions, finishing the season with a 7-3 record, were in a position to win all three of those losses at the end of those games. The boys truly were an inspiration to their parents and coaches and have built a solid foundation for the Midget team next year. After finishing the regular season un-

defeated, the East County Lions’ Pee Wee team started their playoff run with a 32-0 thumping of a tough Antioch team. The dominant rushing of Ronnie Rivers, Baylei Coston and D’Ante Killian led the Lions offense. Rivers also connected with Abel Ordaz on a 32-yard touchdown pass. Adri-

an Guitron booted all four of the Lions’ two-point kicks. Defensively, the Lions broke Antioch’s will with tremendous pressure as they forced three turnovers. Devan Lance made a leaping interception to stop one drive and Travis Baxter forced a fumble that was recovered by Rivers and turned into a Lions TD. The Lions linebacking corps of Cole Zanarini, Harlan Rashada, Baxter, Ordaz and Coston made tackle after tackle as the Antioch offense couldn’t get anything going all day. The Lions now play in the semifinal game against a fast West County Spartans team. The stakes: a bid to the Turkey Bowl. The Jr. Pee Wees played their last football game this season, finishing with a heartbreaking loss to the San Ramon TBirds 27-16. After holding the T-Birds to a one-touchdown lead in the first half, the Lions came back hard, pushing the score to 16-14 in their favor. The boys fought with everything they had, but made a couple of mistakes, which the T-Birds took advantage of and scored. – Contributed by Ingrid Gregerson

Rallies from page 20A Valley with a 21-20 victory. A fourthand-one two-yard touchdown plow from junior halfback Devin Hope gave the Patriots the final lead with about 15 seconds left. On that key play, Heritage senior quarterback Carson Cleverly took the snap, turned around and faced multiple options for the handoff. It was Hope’s number that was called. “At first, I didn’t think it was coming to me,” Hope said. “But when I saw (Cleverly) turn around, I knew I was getting it. So I got the ball, found a hole and ran

through it as fast as I could.” The victory gave Heritage (5-5, 3-2 BVAL) a berth in the playoffs. The Patriots, a No. 11 seed, travel to Danville to face sixth-seeded Monte Vista on Saturday. Deer Valley (4-6, 2-3 BVAL) scored on the first play of the fourth quarter off a three-yard run from junior back Davonte Boyd. Sophomore quarterback Nsimba Webster scored on the Wolverines’ next possession to open up a 20-9 lead. A 14-yard touchdown run on a reverse from Heritage senior receiver Kejhan Clayton cut the lead to 20-15 with only five minutes to go. It was Clayton’s

second score of the night. Unable to stop the clock, Heritage executed a sneak onside kick as senior kicker Jordan Fovel fooled the Wolverines and allowed Heritage to keep the ball. “It’s how I’ve always done it,” Fovel said. “I’m more comfortable pushing it right than going left across my body. Plus, we have faster guys on that side.” A short kick, nice return and 15-yard facemask penalty put Deer Valley in position to attempt a field goal from outside 40 yards. But sophomore Christian Quintanilla’s boot was too low from the beginning. When it fell short, Heritage

had beaten Deer Valley for the second consecutive season. “I think they got tired,” Heritage head coach Jeff Haagenson said of Deer Valley’s defense. “I don’t want to say that they quit. I don’t think they did. But they got tired from the same plays going at them. Our guys tightened up some shots. But we were running the same plays.” Junior varsity Heritage took advantage of early mistakes to beat Deer Valley 14-6. The Patriots wrapped up their season at 8-2, while the Wolverines finished 4-5-1. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Downtown from page 1B construction market. He also pointed out that since the project began, Gov. Brown has radically changed how redevelopment agencies work in an effort to balance the state budget. “Had we not done this when we did, the money would be gone to the state and we wouldn’t be standing here right now,” Eldredge said. The project was the result of years of input from business owners, residents and city planners and consultants. It was needed not only to replace aging utilities that could not support the restaurants and other businesses it’s hoped will soon fill the remaining vacancies, but show current and potential occupants that the city is serious about supporting them, Reed said. It’s hoped the work will inspire the private sector to make investments of its own. That message is one that Peter Charitou, owner of Sweeney’s Grill & Bar, echoed. “I think the downtown looks good. I like it,” Charitou said. “It took a while to get it all done, but it’s nice. The customers seem to like it. The city has done its part to improve the area; now it is up to the businesses to do their part to bring people in.” One of the first to take advantage of the new 20-foot-wide sidewalks designed to accommodate outdoor dining, Charitou has already begun capitalizing on the opportunity by placing a halfdozen tables in a new patio dining area

In the works are plans to remodel the interior and the outdoor façade, and install new lighting and a retractable awning in the back patio. He plans to make the renovations early next year to be ready for spring, as most customers won’t be requesting outdoor dining as the weather gets colder and the rains arrive. Toan Huynh, manager of the res-

taurant Pho Vietnam on First Street, also plans to take advantage of expanded sidewalks to install outdoor dining, but plans to wait until the spring, when customers will be more inclined to use the outside eating option. “Our customers are looking forward to the coming changes,” said Huynh. “They seem to like the new downtown – especially now that all the construction R MEDA VE AWARD

is over. Now we just need to get more foot traffic down here. I really like what the city has done to the area, and I hope more people will come to check it out.” Retailers who struggled through the construction are also hoping to see foot traffic return. Laura Dee, owner of the Catwalk Boutique, said the sidewalks provide an opportunity to hold sidewalk sales – once customers get used to the new layout. “Right now, my biggest concern is getting people to come back downtown,” she said. “The construction chased customers away, and the new parking situation continues to deter customers.” Widening the sidewalks to make them dining- and pedestrian-friendly resulted in the conversion of some diagonal parking to parallel. Reed said there were 170 parking stalls in the downtown core prior to the project, and currently 120. The parallel parking also required that some of the handicapped parking (which requires wider stalls) be relocated to parking lots. There are five city-owned downtown parking lots, plus the recently opened civic center parking structure that adds almost 300 stalls a block away next to the nearly complete city hall. “We’ll see what happens in the spring when there are more events,” Dee said. “Hopefully that will increase foot traffic.

Operators of the Downtown Thursdays event the last few years, the group’s goal for the immediate future is to show off the city center’s new look by sponsoring a halfdozen weekend events and regular midweek promotions. Since a good chunk of Brentwood’s population commutes during the week, O’Brien believes it makes sense to invest more time and effort into weekend festivities. “We want to make it more enticing for residents to come to downtown Brentwood,” she said. “This year, our focus is very much on making it family friendly. And to do that, since this is such a bedroom community, we need to make sure we’re doing things when people are in town to attend.” Members of the BDC are still putting together their activity calendar for next year and hope to issue it in December. Keep your eyes peeled for events that could include post-Thanksgiving shopping specials, a start-of-summer barbecue bash, an Oktoberfest celebration and the return of the popular Brides Day Out, which has attracted thousands of shoppers in the past. The

offerings will complement Chamber of Commerce mainstays such as the Holiday Parade (the 2011 parade is held this Saturday, Nov. 19), Hometown Halloween as well as the Farmers’ Market. Though the main events will likely be slated for weekends, a host of weekday initiatives will encourage people to shop downtown. “Tasty Tuesdays” offer discounts at restaurants, Wednesdays “The Works” is devoted to service salons and beauty businesses, and a “Thank You” Thursdays campaign is under development. “We want to give them the support, the tools to market themselves,” said O’Brien. “They choose what discounts to give and how else to participate.” The coalition of small businesses receives its funding through a Chamber of Commerce grant, and aims to support downtown merchants by pooling resources to get the word out about what’s going on in the historic center of town. But even as the organization ramps up its efforts to bring people back to the city’s core, the widened sidewalks and inviting benches are creating a natural uptick in new customers. “There’s a definite change,” O’Brien said from her florist shop earlier this week. “People walk by and tell me that they never noticed I was here before … it’s because they’re out walking around, enjoying the place. And they should – we live in a beautiful city.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Keisha Zogg of WR Properties said more people are dropping in to their First Street offices since the barricades went away. “We get a lot more walk-ins; the remodel has been great for business,” she said. “The goal has been accomplished.” The new streetscape has already seen a few big crowds. The Brentwood Chamber of Commerce’s Hometown Halloween attracted thousands, more than a few of whom were seen playing in the water of the new fountain.

motto “Heritage, Vision, Opportunity” as well as inscribed paving stones bearing the names of donors who helped build the original monument to Art Gonzales, a former mayor and teacher. The Liberty High School Homecoming Parade rolled through the upgraded environs two weeks ago, and the new seating planters and benches were filled to capacity with observers. “This is really nice,” Drew Ebersol said as the procession passed. “We have a nice, new downtown, but we’re using it to show off pride in our high school just as we have for years. It’s the perfect blend of tradition and progress.” Samie Hartley contributed to this story. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE CASH IN! SHOW EXTENDS DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND! By Jason Delong STAFF WRITER

Gold and silver pour into yesterday’s Roadshow due to highest prices in 40 years.

Yesterday at the Holiday Inn Express, locals lined up to cash in on their gold and silver, antiques, collectibles, at the “As seen on TV,” Treasure Hunters Roadshow. The free event is in Tracy all week, buying gold, silver, antiques and collectibles. One visitor I spoke with yesterday said, “It’s unbelievable, I brought in some old coins that had been in a little cigar box for years and some old herringbone necklaces—in less than fifteen minutes I left with a check for $700. That stuff has been in my jewelry box and dresser for at least 20 years.” Another gentleman brought in an old Fender guitar his father had bought years ago. The man said, “Dad had less than fifty bucks in that guitar.” The Roadshow specialist that assisted him made a few phone calls and a veterinarian in Seattle, Washington bought the guitar for $5,700.00. The seller continued, “I got another $300.00 for a broken necklace and an old class ring. It’s not every day that someone comes to town bringing six thousand dollars with your name on it.” Jeff Parsons, President of the Treasure Hunters Roadshow, commented, “Lots of people have items that they know are valuable but just don’t know where to sell them. Old toys, trains, swords, guitars, pocket watches and jewelry are valuable to collectors. These collectors are willing to pay big money for those items that they are looking for.” This week’s Roadshow is the best place to get connected with those collectors. The process is free and anyone can bring items down to the event. If the Roadshow specialists find items that their collectors are interested in, offers will be made to purchase them. About 80% of the guests that attend the show end up selling one or more items at the event. Antiques and collectibles are not the only items the Roadshow is buying. “Gold and silver markets are soaring,” says Archie Davis, a Road-

His check was for over $650.00.

Color your health Beta-carotene is a natural substance abundant in dark-colored fruits and vegetables. Mostly reddish orange or dark-green in color, beta-carotene is found in carrots, beets, cantaloupes, mangoes, yams and papayas. Dark-green leafy vegetables such as kale and spinach are also excelSENIOR lent. Apples and pears, ORNER high in fiber, contain beta-carotene it their skins. An added benefit: these are all natural foods low in calories. Munch away! It’s best to get your carotene from natural – not synthetic MARLA – sources. Smokers who LUCKHARDT overindulge in synthetic carotene are at a slightly higher risk of cancer plus liver problems. Use common sense and following your doctor’s advice. Eating fresh – not canned – fruits and vegetables high in beta-carotene is also a wonderful way to avoid excess sugar and salt.

It’s possible that what you think is harmless could be causing the problem,” said Khonsari. “Even the food or beverages you consume along with your

Try seasoning your food with a little pepper instead of salt. Dip apples or pears in natural honey for a little sweet boost. I haven’t used salt in my cooking or on my foods for a few years, and now I can taste even a little salt right away. One of my favorite snacks is chips and salsa or dip. Substituting celery or carrots for the chips gives you that nice crunch. Bean dip with a little hot sauce is wonderfully flavorful and contains good fiber that most dips don’t. A good balance of protein, fiber, fruits and vegetables is essential for good health throughout our lives. But as we get older, the body needs certain nutrients that have dissipated with time. Like a well-oiled engine, we need clean fuel and lots of water to keep moving. So keep stoking your engine with beat-carotene. You’ll be amazed at how many miles you can put on that old odometer.

MILESTONES

Solid gold Pasquale “Pat” and Barbara Sciancalepore celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a 10-day stay in Paris. They met 52 years ago on a beach along Jersey shore. Pat had recently finished his junior year of college and Barbara was working in New York for Western Electric. After a two-year courtship, Pat took a two-week leave from his duties on board the USS Stormes, which was stationed in Norfolk, Va., and they were married in October of 1961. They honeymooned in Bermuda – where they returned for their 25th anniversary. They retired and moved to Brentwood in 2000. Pat and Barbara have three children: Linda, John and Tom; two grandchildren: Nicholas, 14; and Shaun, 29. Shaun married Jaylene Evans, giving Pat and Barbara two cherished great-grandchildren, Ryder, 3; and Lila Mae, 1. This was a special year for milestones. Pat’s mom, Mary Minervini, celebrated her 100th birthday in March and Lila celebrated her first birthday in May. The couple participates in the seniors’ exercise program three days a week, and Barbara is a member of the Crafty Quilters at IHM church. Barbara and Pat are members of the Earthquakes bocce team in Brentwood. Pat has been captain for 10 years. They volunteer as energy allows.

Just married endi Marie Jessica Ventura of Clayton and Meregildo Garcia Elisondo of Palo Alto, along with parents Ronald and Charisse Ventura of Clayton and the late Maria Teresa Elisondo and Reveriano Prado Garcia of Michoacan, Mexico, are happy to announce their marriage. The couple was wed Oct. 14, 2011 and plans to reside in the Bay Area.
