When T-Mobile got the go-ahead last month to erect a cell phone tower near Slifer Park, town officials immediately began looking for a place to park the anticipated lease revenue. On Nov. 17, the Discovery Bay CSD board finally dialed in a solution, and the number is 1-800-GENERAL FUND. “These (T-Mobile) dollars are coming from external dollars, which means that they can’t be co-mingled with the town’s other funds,” said General Manager Rick Howard. “But the establishment of a general fund means that they can be used anywhere.” The CSD board unanimously voted for the creation of the fund, which will hold not only the roughly $24,000 annually from T-Mobile, but other unrestricted funds as well. “Every time we sell a Discovery Bay license plate or T-shirt we can (potentially) put it into the general fund,” said Howard. What can’t go into the general fund are revenues from restricted funds such as water and wastewater or landscaping. However, while restricted funds cannot be used for general-fund expenditures, general funds can be

The weekend theft of a custom go-kart along Highway 4 near Discovery Bay might have resulted in the death of one family’s prize mustang, and the owners of the horse are offering a $5,000 reward for information pertaining to the tragic accident. “I don’t give a damn about the go-kart, but we would like to know what happened,” said Heather Pastorini, whose horse Sweetheart died Thanksgiving weekend. “We can replace the gokart but we can’t replace a member of our family. We are griefstricken.” Sometime in the early morning hours of Nov. 27, thieves cut the locks of the Pastorinis’ horse stable and storage property on Highway 4 across from Regatta Drive and stole the family’s gokart, valued at $800.

on Saturday morning and saw that the gates were open and the go-kart gone. “Our ranch mate showed up Saturday morning and noticed that the locks had been cut and that one of their horses – Amber – was limping,” said Pastorini. “So he quickly did a head count and noticed that my horse was missing. Calls to the California Highway Patrol (CHP) confirmed that a horse was struck and killed by a car on Highway 4 that evening, and Pastorini said that conversations with neighbors who happened on the scene that evening and CHP officers leads her to believe that a first car struck Sweetheart and drove away. Shortly after that, it’s believed that another car struck the horse that was already down and most likely mortally wounded. But from that point, the see Horse page 26A

Tanners give thanks for the gift of life by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

When the phone call came on Black Friday morning, it was just one more testament to what Elizabeth Tanner refers to as an ongoing state of grace. “For this all to happen on Thanksgiving weekend, of all things – it was just too much to be a coincidence,” said Tanner. “When I got the call asking if we wanted to meet, we didn’t even think about it. We just jumped in the car and went.” The long-hoped-for call was from John Trinwith, grandfather of the 5-year-old boy whose heart and kidney were donated to Aaron Tanner last summer. Visiting family for the Thanksgiving weekend in Brentwood, Trinwith had been keeping tabs on the Tanner’s story from his home in Washington, and through a series of inquiries learned that his grandson was the donor for young Aaron, who had been on an organ donor list for more than a year. “I had been hoping to meet with the Tanners and was hoping it could be when I was here in Brentwood for Thanksgiving,” said Trinwith, who was able to reach the family through a local contact. “It was just too much of an opportunity to pass up.” Agreeing to meet at the home of a friend of Trinwith, the Tanner family, including Aaron and his two brothers, finally got the opportunity to thank Trinwith and his family for their amazing gift. “On the way to meet John, Aaron asked if we were going to meet the little boy he got his heart (and kidney) from and I said no, but you’ll meet his grandfather,” said Tanner. “We’re going to tell him

everything when he’s a little older. It’s too much for him to understand right now.” But for the rest of the family, the emotional meeting was an experience they’ll never forget. “We all got out the car, hugged each other and just started crying,” said Tanner. “We didn’t even know what to say, so we just held onto each other. How can you thank someone for such a gift?” For Trinwith, who is just beginning to come to terms with the loss of his grandson, meeting the Tanners has played an integral role in the healing process. “It’s really hard to describe what it felt like,” said Trinwith. “I tear up just thinking about it. But there is a great sense of pride and satisfaction in knowing we did the right thing (in donating the organs). “He (Aaron) was good. I expected to see a sickly looking child but he is kind of chubby and looks great … It just goes to show that prayers really do get answered.” As for the Tanners, the full impact of the meeting has yet to sink in, but what does sink in is that the family continues to be touched by miracles. “The doctors had said when Aaron had the surgery that it (the organs) was just most perfect match imaginable,” said Tanner. “Everything that has happened to us has been a continuous example of how God moves in our lives. “To meet John was wonderful. There is not a moment that this has been going on that we have not thought of them and been heartbroken for their loss and grateful for their gift, and it was so nice to be able to tell them that in person. They will be forever in our hearts.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

East County residents deck their halls by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

While Christmastime for some residents means large Santa decorations and enough lights to double an energy bill, others turn their attention to the inside of their house as part of local holiday home tours. The home tours also represent a more festive chance to give back, one of the major draws for Glenda Cohn. The Brentwood resident is participating in this weekend’s Liberty Union High School District Holiday Home Tour, which benefits the district’s educational foundation. “I don’t mind doing fundraisers for any of the schools locally, so that’s what I enjoy,” Cohn said. “I like the holiday season, I like to decorate my house, I like to bring people out and just be festive.” Cohn said she enjoys decking out her Colonial-style house with decorations appropriate to that time period, taking tour participants to a different era. She said she toyed with the notion of asking a friend to dress in colonial garb, but she’s keeping that idea in reserve for now. The tour will start at Cohn’s Hanna Nicole Vineyards, 6700 Balfour Road, at noon on Saturday. The festivities also feature a silent auction, door prize drawings and live entertainment. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. For tickets and more information, visit education-

Many East County residents have been decorating their houses in the Christmas spirit for upcoming holiday home tours. wins.org. On Sunday, six Discovery Bay residents show off their décor as part of the Discovery Bay Holiday Home Tour, which benefits the Discovery Bay Community Presbyterian Church’s community projects. Discovery Bay resident Tina Duncan said this will be her first year participating in the event after she helped out over the past six or seven years. She enjoys the

challenge of thinking about Christmas shortly after the last trick-or-treaters stop by. “It’s a really well-run event, and I love to see houses that are decorated for the holidays,” Duncan said. She has toured houses in past events to gather ideas about how to decorate her own house. Duncan, whose grandfather used to dress up as Santa for mall appearances, said one of her favorite decorations is a special old-fashioned doll of St.

Nick on her kitchen table. Duncan also treasures her nativity scene, something she and her daughter contribute to every year. Tour participants will meet at the church, 1900 Willow Lake Road, at 12:30 p.m. Tickets are $20. For more information, call 925-513-1939 or 925-634-0184. The Antioch Women’s Club holds its 56th Antioch Holiday Home Tour on Dec. 12 in Rivertown. Five houses and three businesses will participate in the tour. One of the historic houses belongs to Connie Komar. This is the second time Komar has done this, though she’s been involved with the Women’s Club for four years. “I love to decorate. I go overboard,” Komar said. “It was nice to have people come in and look and appreciate it.” Komar said her house is more than 100 years old, so she has lavished it with antiques to give it an old-fashioned feel. The tour, which runs from noon to 4 p.m., is followed by a reception from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Hall at Sixth and E streets. Tour goers can start wherever they wish, but participant Liese McCause said Teazz Salon, 606 W. Second St., is a good starting point. Tickets are $25 and proceeds go to the Women’s Club efforts for scholarships for local high school students. For information, call McCause at 925-777-1831 or Komar at 925-522-8663.

Detectors save lives Home of

Any new house built or remodeled in the last 20 years is required to have a smoke detector installed in every sleeping room and in the hallway adjacent to the sleeping rooms. Starting in July of 2011, as the result of a bill signed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger this past May, California homeowners will be required to install a carbon monoxide detector. Senate Bill 183 requires any house with a fossil-fuel burning appliance, fireplace or attached garage to install a carbon monoxide detector. The intent of the new law is to protect against the loss of life and injury. Each year in California, more than 40 people die as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning. “Carbon monoxide is referred to as the silent killer because it’s an odorless and colorless gas,” said Oakley Building Official Brent Smith. “These deaths are entirely preventable.

With the purchase of a $20 to $30 carbon monoxide detector, you can ensure that the carbon monoxide would be detected prior to the build-up of dangerous levels. “The law takes effect July, 2011 but people should think of installing them now. This is the time of year we are not opening our windows and allowing fresh air in the house, and it’s also the time of year that we typically run our heaters more.” Carbon monoxide detectors are inexpensive and easy to install – you can purchase and install them in less than an hour. Smith said carbon monoxide detectors should be placed at least five feet above the ground adjacent to sleeping rooms on each level of the house. For more information about how to protect your house, call the Oakley Building Division at 925-625-7005.

Christmas cheer spread Members of The Rock Church in Brentwood are busily working on their 2010 Christmas Outreach Project. This year the church plans to provide food, Food Maxx gift cards, clothing and toys for 600 Brentwood residents. On Sundays, Dec. 12 and 19, The Rock Church will suspend its regular services to host an event that will aid families and individuals in need. Members of the congregation will come together to serve meals, give away clothing and toys, and share the joy of the holiday season. Santa Claus and a few other special guests are also scheduled to make a visit to surprise the children.

The church is asking residents to donate toys, clothes, jackets and shoes for recipients of all ages. Monetary donations (tax deductible) are also welcome. Checks may be made out to The Rock Church and include Christmas Outreach Project 2010 in the memo. Another way to help is to donate items to the church that can be sold or auctioned off, such as cars, stereo equipment and musical instruments. Volunteers are needed to help sort and hand out clothing and toys, serve meals and visit with guests. For more information about how to get involved, call Associate Pastor Sal Bono at 925-634-4842.

SHOULD WE TAKE OUR HOME OFF THE MARKET DURING THE HOLIDAYS? Every year about this time I hear this question. There is a myth out there that home selling activity completely shuts down after Thanksgiving and picks up again in January. The truth is that homes sell all year round. I’ve had some of my best months in December. If you aren’t that motivated to sell, you don’t have a deadline to meet, and showing your home during the Holidays is too much of a hassle, go ahead and take your home off the market. However, if you do have to sell your home, and you do have a deadline to meet, then leave it on the market. It certainly isn’t going to sell if you take it off the market! Here are some reasons why the Holidays are a great time to be on the market—Some people take more time off of work, giving them more time to go look at homes. While there are fewer buyers looking, those that are looking are serious buyers. The “lookey-loos” go home, leaving the serious ones. These are usually the buyers that are getting relocated

who are usually your best buyers because they have a deadline to meet and often company financial support so they are non-contingent buyers. Many buyers want to get their family settled before school starts up again in January. Also, when does your home look better than when you have it all cleaned up and decorated for the Holidays? Lastly, consider that many other sellers will take their homes off the market, so the buyers have fewer homes to choose from. If you absolutely, positively do not want to move until after the Holidays, that is still not a reason to avoid being on the market now. If you get an offer asking you to move out December 20, you can counter-offer a new date or just refuse the offer altogether. If you have questions on this or any other real estate topic, call me at (925) 240-MOVE (6683). To search the MLS for free and view virtual tours of homes for sale, go to: www. SharpHomesOnline.com.

Another History Mystery solved New information about Knightsen’s history has been revealed as a result of November’s History Mystery contest, but the winner isn’t from East County. Ed Kreyenhagen, a resident of Coalinga, was able to shed some light on the mysterious message sent to Adeline Knight in 1910. Kreyenhagen, who has relatives who formerly lived in Knightsen, confirmed what local historian Carol Jenson suspected: the postcard was written by Essie Knight to her sister Adeline. In the message, Essie refers to their sister Amy, who Essie reported made it to Coalinga. Kreyenhagen has made an educated guess, which impressed Jensen, as to why Amy ventured more than 150 miles south. “Ed Kreyenhagen now pieces the clues together,” Jensen said. “What is Amy doing in Coalinga? She is 25 or 26 years old and married. She has three children. Coalinga is a boom town in 1910 with the development of the oil industry. There is a Harvey Rook, plumber, listed in the Coalinga Business Directory of 1910.” Amy married Harvey Rook in Sept. 5, 1902. Kreyenhagen suggests that the “great big auto” that Essie refers to in her message is not the Rook family car, but a vehicle owned by an oil company

friend who was bringing friends to visit Coalinga. Jensen said there is a record of an auto party group arriving in Coalinga on Oct. 26, 1910. Essie’s postcard was postmarked on the same day. This small piece of information can be added to the legacy of the Knight family, which settled in present day see History page 9A

History from page 8A Knightsen in late 19th century. George W. Knight married Christina Christensen on March 2, 1885. Jensen said they contributed the land, which would become Knightsen, and combined their last names to name the town (George’s last name plus the last three letters of Christina’s maiden name). The spelling indicated Danish heritage, but that’s no excuse for the town being misspelled on the front of the postcard. In Essie’s message, she refers to

“Geo.” Kreyenhagen believes the nickname refers to George Knight, but Jensen hypothesizes that “Geo” is actually George Duff, who would later marry Adeline after the two were reacquainted when Addie returned to Knightsen following her divorce from Cohen Mecum. Jensen likes to think of Essie as a matchmaker, bringing the childhood friends back together. Stay tuned next week for the December installment of History Mystery.

Above, school officials and community members came out this week to christen the opening of Excelsior Middle School’s new driveway. The ribbon was cut by Joseph Duarte, who sold a portion of his Byron property to the school district for the construction of the driveway.

New driveway gives students safer access by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Local officials and community wellwishers braved freezing temperatures this week to christen the long-anticipated new driveway at Excelsior Middle School. “It was a little chilly, but nice,” said Gaby Hellier, Byron Union School District CBO, of the early morning event. “We’re very happy it’s here.”

The construction project, begun last summer, is located behind the middle school and feeds into Byer Road. Located on 1.7 acres sold to the school district by longtime resident Joseph Duarte, the new driveway will offer drop-off and pick-up access away from busy Byron Highway. “The most important part of this project was the safety issue, because what happens right now is that when people come down the Byron Highway, people have to

cross the highway to come in, and it’s dangerous,” said Hellier. “Now people will be driving onto Byer Road from either direction and can pull in and drop off – or pick up – and exit onto the Byron Highway.” The project was paid for with Measure C dollars – a $19,700,00 bond passed in 2006 to improve the quality of education in the Byron district. District projects already completed or slated for completion include the installation of districtwide

technology, the development of the Excelsior campus tie-in project, the expansion of the kindergarten area at Discovery Bay Elementary School and improvements to the Timber Point Elementary parking and drop-off locations. As allocated by state law, Measure C dollars can be used only for the construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation or replacement of school facilities and not for administrator or teacher salaries.

Community opens its heart at Feast by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Thanksgiving is over, but hundreds of East County residents continue to give thanks to the organizers of Street Feast, a regional holiday celebration for those who needed a helping hand to make it through last week’s festivities. Organized by Willy’s Bagels and Blends, Cornerstone Fellowship, GTK Tactical and a host of other community organizations and volunteers, the inaugural event at Town Center in Brentwood offered free home-cooked turkey dinners with all the fixings as well as free clothes to anyone who stopped by on Thanksgiving Day. Organizer Pastor Billy Rieder of Cornerstone Fellowship estimated that more than 400 East County residents received a boost of support at the event. “The folks who came were surprised to find more than just food being offered,” Rieder said. “Bounce houses were set up for the kids, a live band provided music, and one of the Oakland Raider’s mascots came to hand out prizes. Many people commented on the festive atmosphere.” The event also featured a video game station, children’s activities and a clown who delivered stuffed animals to the children who came for dinner. Ryan Richardson of Willy’s Bagels and Blends said one of the highlights of the event was watching the children run-

According to volunteer Dena Jeglum of Antioch, hundreds of volunteers from East County rallied to make the inaugural event a success. Some families even arrived in shifts during the event so that they could enjoy Thanksgiving at home and with the community at Street Feast. Toward the end of the event, volunteers contacted East County Military Families and Friends, the Warrior Watch Riders

They also loved that they were treated with respect and were sort of given a personal shopper to help them find their size (at the clothing center) while the kids played outside and were watched over

by volunteers from the church.” Discovery Bay Elementary teacher Erin York, who helped organize volunteers for the event, said the volunteers were just as grateful for the Street Feast experience as those who came to the event seeking aid: “It was amazing to see all the people who just wanted to lend a helping hand. The event itself was great. People had a good time, whether they were there to eat or to volunteer. We had a lot to offer everyone, and next year it will be even better.” That’s right. Plans for the second annual Street Feast are already in motion. Rieder said the outpouring of support has encouraged the event’s organizers to plan an even bigger event for 2011. “Between the volunteers, those who donated clothing and food, and for those who came to eat and receive clothing – over 700 people were involved. That shows a real communitywide effort. People want to help others, and Street Feast helped provide a way to make that happen.” Cornerstone Fellowship is still accepting donations for the clothing center, which will be open through Christmas. Those who want to donate or shop for clothes should visit the church office at 1185 Second St., Suite A in Brentwood. Office hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 925-516-9380. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

It’s a Matter of Law By Amy Alvis & Barbara A. Frantz

INCORPORATE IN NEVADA? NOT SO FAST! Many clients who come to our firm hear from someone that incorporating in Nevada is the way to go. It’s private, there are no state taxes, and it’s kind of sexy. However, before you file those papers, think again. California tax laws may change your mind. The reason to file in a particular state most often is motivated by tax issues. Most people believe that they won’t have to pay state income tax if they have a Nevada Corporation. The California Franchise Tax Board will determine if you do business primarily in California or not. If your federal tax return shows any “nexus” or connection with California, you will be taxed by California in accordance with the proportion of revenue that you receive in California. Say, for example, your sales reps are in Nevada, but your main office and your home are in California. The Franchise Tax Board, in an audit, has the ability to look to see where your credit card and gas card charges are from. If it looks like you live in California, and it looks like your business is operating out of California, they can charge you California taxes. The amount of taxes you pay to California is also affected by the percentage of revenue you receive from California sales in relation to other states. So somebody with an internet business where the goods are shipped from a manufacturer

in Florida to somewhere outside the state of California would not be subject to California tax. But if you are shipping from California, you are subject to California tax. There are many exceptions to the rules, and specific circumstances that can change the result. That’s why it’s good to see an attorney who can help you sort out which state is best for incorporation. Our firm will walk you through the decision making process to make sure you accomplish the result that you want. To find out more about business law or corporations, call Barbara Frantz at Alvis Frantz and Associates, A PC at (925) 516-1617. HAVE A LEGAL QUESTION YOU WANT TO SEE ANSWERED HERE?

Seeking to right a historical wrong by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer Antioch historian and lifelong resident Elizabeth Rimbault is working to correct what she feels has been a long-overlooked mistake. When William Wiggin Smith founded Antioch in 1851, he staked out a portion of land near the river as his own, calling it Smith’s Point. Smith, who according to Rimbault was a master carpenter, built three houses on the land. But a legal snafu after Smith’s death in 1898 changed the name to “Rogers’ Point” – a moniker that has stuck ever since. Rimbault, who recently transcribed Smith’s diary into a book, wants the city to issue a proclamation to change the name back, honoring Antioch’s founding father. The area is located near the end of Fulton Shipyard Road. “We spent the entire 1900s calling it Rogers’ Point, and it’s like everything that Smith did or contributed to the community was just kind of wiped off the face of the earth,” Rimbault said. Rimbault noted that Smith is the only one with the legal claim to that land, and reverting his name would be the proper thing to do. She said Smith received the first United States Land Title to the point, something echoed with celebration in the founder’s diary. In his role of clergyman, Smith trav-

This area of Rogers’ Point, which a local historian is trying to get reverted to Smith’s Point in honor of the city’s founder, has been owned by Antioch since the 1980s and is fenced off. eled often to his congregation in Stockton. The land was actually named for Smith’s wife, Jane Crocker Croswell Smith, whose name was on the deed. He decided to do that in homage to the women’s suffrage movement, Rimbault said. Many times, the city’s founder would come back to Antioch to find people on his property. W.W. Smith kept going back to San Francisco to ratify his claim, but it took 17 years to get an official document entitling “the Point,” to him.

“Thursday, November 18, 1869, this is OUR Thanksgiving Day, enjoyed upon our own land,” Smith wrote in his diary. According to Rimbault, Smith’s son, William Moody Smith, attempted to gain power of attorney while his father was near suffering from dementia and near death. Because the land had been so hotly contested in the past, the judge decided not to approve William Moody’s request, but to grant a conservatorship to the founder’s daughter, Sarah. After W.W. Smith’s death, the land

was re-appraised for probate hearings, but somehow the name of someone associated with Smith’s estate, John Rogers, became the official name on the title. Rimbault surmised that Rogers might have purchased the land through the probate hearings, but she’s not entirely sure of what happened. “In those days, if you own it, you name it,” she said. “Somewhere along the line, Rogers becomes the owner.” Rimbault was hoping that City Council would issue a proclamation this month, closer to the land claim date, but Antioch Mayor Jim Davis said the council wouldn’t have time to give the issue its proper due right now. At the last meeting earlier this month, Davis asked that the matter be put on the agenda in early 2011. “I think it’s an attempt to correct a moral wrong that has been done in history toward Smith,” Rimbault said. Since no signage would need to be changed, a proclamation would come at no cost to Antioch, Rimbault said. She’s hoping for some form of official notice from the city, which owns the land that is now fenced-off, and for any future references to the area be made as “Smith’s Point.” Rimbault hopes that doing so would enhance awareness of the founder, to whom she referred as a Renaissance Man, and maybe spark a more interest in Antioch’s history.

Adapting to education’s paradigm shift by Walter Ruehlig A contingent of Antioch leaders, representing our school, City Council, business and community sectors, recently returned from a grantUEST funded trip to COMMENT Nashville, Tenn. to see firsthand a city that has come together full-bore for career-based education. Our delegation, which included Superintendent of Schools Dr. Donald Gill and Mayor Jim Davis, toured some of Nashville’s academies and heard details of a successful blueprint from a mayor who walks the reform talk. He stressed that a city really has three main priorities: education, safety and economic vitality, and that engaging youth can affect all three. Good schools keep kids off the streets. They help real estate prices. They attract businesses, industry and the well-todo. The takeaway was twofold: we realized that in many ways we are already doing things in Antioch that are ahead of the pack regionally and nationally. We also realized, though, that we can push yet further and broader. Nashville’s model is intriguing and provocative. It has a “wall-towall” concept. There is a citywide alliance of school, council and business partners. They offer no opt-out, as

G

every student has to elect a pathway. Lest you consider that restricting, consider that this city-county of 600,000 offers an astonishing 49 academy choices. There is, then, literally a seat at the table for every student. The proof, as always, is in the pudding. Strikingly, Nashville test scores, graduation rates, college admissions and attendance all confirm a positive direction. Obviously, Antioch is not the size of Nashville. We have unique needs and different funding mechanisms. Nevertheless, the trip stirred ideas. We here have, of course, come along ways on our current path of what is now called linked education and was, in previous incarnations, called vocational education, career tech and alternate pathways. We have medical, law and criminal justice, performing arts, EDGE (Environmental Design for Green Energy), business and space and science academies. The exciting thing with these theme-based schools is that we have gone beyond just throwing into the elective mix some vocational class. Firstly, the curriculum at our academies is rigorous. We are University of California, A-G requirement, driven. Our goal is to prepare all of our students to have the option of either transitioning to college or to entering workforce training. Also, our curriculum is integrated.

For example, a Law and Criminal Justice Academy student might study “To Kill a Mockingbird” in literature, write legal briefs or essays in composition, discuss or debate constitutional law in history, and use algebraic formulas to determine a driver’s speed by the brake marks. Originally, our intention was to build out to where 50 percent of our student body could elect academies. Nashville has us thinking, though. It’s a heady venture we’ve been on, with the sky the limit. Attendance is up at our academies. The Dozier Libbey Medical Academy hit 820 API last year, and the Delta Performing Arts Academy shot up an incredible 78 points. An emphasis on unstinting expectations, targeted interests and smaller learning environments is working. Of course, this is part of an overall reform movement which emphasizes parent involvement, teacher morale, aggressive staff recruitment, standardized curriculum objectives, early-on interventions, best teaching practices, teacher mentoring, pacing guides and periodic data-driven assessments. Rigor, relevance and relationship, after all, form the paradigm of the future. This is the information age, and critical thinking and collaboration skills are crucial objectives if we are to not lose out to our global competitors. We have been losing ground for

Farm Workers of America, AFL-CIO (UFW) and a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, seeks to motivate people to organize sustainable communities to allow “social justice.” Social justice is a Marxist theory touting economic equality (redistribution of wealth) for all classes in society. The UFW backed the recent Take Our Jobs campaign, which urged people to apply for agricultural jobs held by undocumented workers. Rigoberta Menchu rose to fame in 1982 when a series of her taped interviews became the basis for a ghostwritten autobiography. In 1999, however, anthropologist David Stoll published “Rigoberta Menchu and the Story of All Poor Guatemalans,” citing numerous examples of inaccuracy on key points; e.g., she couldn’t have been forced to watch her brother burned to death because she was elsewhere at the time, and secondly, no rebels were ever burned to death in the town. (Her brother was executed for being a rebel.) Stoll’s book caused a clamor for the Nobel Foundation to revoke her award.

decades as places like South Korea, Singapore and Finland outpace us. Thirty percent of our kids drop out. We score 17th for industrialized nations in math-science scores and ninth in overall college readiness. For those lamenting the good old days, remember that even in the ’30s and ’40s, 70 percent of our kids didn’t graduate. In the ’60s, our educational crisis bannered “Why Can’t Johnny Read?” In the ’90s, a presidential commission called us a “Nation at Risk.” The problems have been there; it is just higher stakes now. This is certainly a race we can’t afford to lose – not in Antioch and not in America. The agricultural and factory-based educational system developed in the Henry Ford days, where 10 to 15 percent of the students (generally white, male and middle class) were educated for business leadership, the rest for basic citizenship, won’t work in this global, tech-driven economy. It takes a new seed to raise a new crop. Linked education has shown that it can play a major role in that breakthrough promise. As a unified community committed to our youth, we can make this happen. Antioch can have parents knocking on the door to get in to our community. We can blossom into a true destination point. Walter Ruehlig is vice president of the Antioch Unified School District Board of Trustees.

Haze over Perko’s Editor: As a longtime customer of Brentwood’s Perko’s Café, I was puzzled like many other customers by the abrupt no-

tice of closure by the current franchisee for what was posted on the locked front door as a “remodel” that would last from four to six weeks. The friendly staff was given about a week’s notice, and as I was informed, not even a formal layoff; just a ton of questions. I contacted Randy Brooks (president of Dynaco Food Concepts) about purchasing the franchise, which he advised me had been taken back from the current holder. He informed me that they were in negotiations with their Stockton/ Sacramento operator to “reopen the unit within the next two months after an extensive remodel, rehire and retraining of staff we will have a Grand Opening to launch our new Farm Fresh theme …” From my conversation with him, I believe it is the company’s intent to rehire the staff in case they’re wondering what’s going on and in the dark. I hope someone in the Kiwanis organization reads this, as I know they have their regular breakfast meeting there. Duane Wilson Brentwood

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Winter Tire Pressure According to Motor Trend magazine you lose about 1 pound per square inch, or 1psi, in tire pressure for every 10 degree drop in outside air temperature: the colder the weather the flatter the tire. In our case it isn’t the molecules found within our tires that will be constricting, it’s the guidelines set forth by Fannie Mae for any would-be home buyers. From December 13th forward new guidelines will be in place that can positively, or negatively, affect one’s ability to purchase a home. First, the good news… Gift funds will now be allowed for all conventional purchases. Previously gift funds were only allowed through an FHA loan, which is why the FHA product has been so prevalent in east Contra Costa County. Many first time buyers could not save for their down-payment, but could make their projected mortgage payment. Now, those same buyers can look to conventional financing as a very viable option as the funds for their down payment can 100% be a gift for conventional financing as well. Great you say!

fc. Elijah Weber, son of William and Tamara Weber of Discovery Bay, recently completed basic training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego. He successfully completed 12 weeks of training designed to challenge new Marine recruits both physically and mentally. Elijah and his fellow recruits began their training each day at 4:30 a.m. by running three miles and performing calisthenics. In addition to the physical conditioning program, Elijah spent numerous hours in classroom and field assignments, which included first aid, uniform regulations, combat water survival, marksmanship, hand-tohand combat and assorted weapons training. They performed close order drill and operated as a small infantry unit during field training. Elijah also received instruction on the Marine Corps’ core values: honor, courage and commitment, and what the words mean in guiding personal and professional con-

duct. Elijah and his fellow recruits ended the training phase with the Crucible, a 54-hour team effort in problem solving. Elijah will be stationed at 29 Palms and continue his training as a Data Network Specialist.

erb and Dawn Walters of Brentwood are proud to announce the graduation of their son, Bryce Walters, from the U.S. Army basic training at Fort Jackson, S.C. on Nov. 18. While in boot camp, Bryce earned an award in physical fitness. He is currently at-

tending Advance Individual Training at Fort Bragg, N.C. for Psychological Operations. Bryce was a 2010 graduate of Heritage High School, where he was a member of the football and track teams. He was also a member of Explorer Post 415 for the Brentwood Police Department.

change any debt that had less than 10 payments remaining – a car loan with a $2,000 balance and $500 payment – would not be included in that buyer’s debt-to-income ratio. No longer is this the case and any car loan, deferred student loan, or credit has to be counted against a buyer regardless of payments remaining. And the hits just keep on coming… The waiting period for buyers who lost their home through foreclosure and are looking to once again become homeowners has increased: what was a four year waiting period has turned into a seven year waiting period. This change will have many distressed homeowners once again leaning towards a short-sale versus a letting their house go into foreclosure. The Fannie Mae waiting period for purchasing after a shortsale is being changed to two years versus the seven year waiting period after a foreclosure. Before attempting to steer through the real estate world this winter make sure to check in with your trusted Realtor and lender. As a change in tire pressure this winter will affect your ability to safely navigate the road, a change in lending guidelines will dramatically affect your ability to purchase a home.

Getting Divorced: Support Obligations Never Go Away by H.F. Layton I was sitting in court one morning waiting for my case to be called. Before the judge called my matter, she heard the case of a man who was accused of not paying his child support for a significant period of time. His defense seemed plausible enough: He had, in fact, paid his support. The judge asked for proof of his payments. He stated that he was able to prove some of his payments, but not others. The reason: He had a garage fire and most of his cancelled checks were destroyed in the fire. The judge credited him for each payment which he could prove that he made; but each payment for which he could not provide payment, the judge ordered him to pay it (he would say, pay it again), plus interest at the rate of ten percent (10%) per year. Support obligations never disappear. They do not go away. They are not usually forgotten. And the state legislature has made it very difficult for the person that owes child support to become free of that obligation without paying it and providing proof of the payment. Other civil judgments fall off the books if they are not renewed between 7 and 10 years after the judgments are entered. Civil judgments are also subject to other equitable doctrines which could prevent their enforcement if too much time has passed since they were entered. But these defenses to the enforcement of support judgments are not available to those who have been ordered to pay child support. So, what should someone do who is ordered to pay child support? First, make

sure that you make your payment. Second, keep proof of that payment. And third, do something that very few family law attorneys will ever advise you to do–demand that the person to whom you have paid support file with the court (and record with the county recorder) a document entitled “Satisfaction of Judgment.” This document costs little to prepare and relatively little to file and record. But once it is recorded, it becomes a permanent record, a record which is the only way to prove that you have made all of your support payments (even if someone demands payment 50 years later). In addition, one could request that an installment judgment such as child support, be satisfied as of a certain date. That is, one may ask the other party that all payments have been made as ordered to and including a certain date, even if other payments may come due at a later date. But whatever else one does, that person should ensure that proof of the child support payment is retained until the satisfaction of judgment is filed and recorded. H.

Soroptimist seeks Ruby nominations Soroptimist International of Antioch, part of Soroptimist International of the Americas, joins Soroptimists in more than 120 countries and territories worldwide offering programs that improve the lives of women through three distinct platforms: economic empowerment, elimination of violence and gender equality. The organization’s major project is the Soroptimist Women’s Opportunity Awards, which disburses more than $1 million each year to head-of-household women who wish to make a better life for themselves and their families by improving their education, skills and employment prospects. Soroptimist also sponsors the Live Your Dream campaign in recognition of the power of women and their dreams. The Soroptimist Ruby Award: For Women Helping Women (formerly the Soroptimist Making a Difference for Women Award) acknowledges women whose extraordinary personal or professional work improves the lives of women and girls – work such as spearheading an effort to open a domestic violence shelter, starting a mentoring program for at-risk girls, or lobbying companies to provide on-site child care. The Ruby Award program enables local Soroptimist clubs and the Soroptimist organization to thank these women and encourage others to explore ways to assist

women and girls. The program begins on the club level, where the type of recognition varies. Award winners at the club level are eligible for additional awards at other levels of the organization. The finalist receives a $5,000 donation to the charity of her choice. Although Soroptimist clubs are free to honor a woman for a lifetime of good work, the majority of the work should have occurred within the past two years. Previous award winners, Soroptimists and Soroptimist employees are not eligible for the award. Former recipients include domestic violence expert and advocate Elaine Weiss; former U.S. Congresswomen Patsy Mink and Patricia Schroeder; novelist and former district attorney Linda Fairstein; Princess Diana; former child actor and U.S. Ambassador Shirley Temple Black; former Philippines President Corazon Aquino; and marine biologist Dr. Sylvia Earle. Those interested in applying for this award should call Chairperson Judi Parent-Smith at 925-348-5508 or e-mail crazyjudi@yahoo.com. A 501(c)(3) organization, Soroptimist relies on charitable donations to support its programs. For more information, visit www.soroptimist.org. – Contributed by Lori Anzini

Wishing geese a warm winter The last of the geese went by the other day. The late ones. The big dark geese. Headed south noisily. I used to envy them, somehow. They go down there to the warm coastal areas where the jacks swim and the nights are chilly but livable this time of year. If they’re especially sensitive geese, they’ll HOME keep going until there are OUNTRY mangos and palm trees and the language of the people is Spanish. But they cross over here in their long, languorous V’s, and all we can do is look up and wonder what our lives would be like if we could go SLIM along. To fly over the farms RANDLES and valleys, to coast along on the rising thermals, to sail down the long way to warmth and sand and comfort, how nice it might be. But if we did that, we’d miss the snow, and the fire in the fireplace when the work was done in the evening. We’d miss how the snowy world

C

looks just at dusk when the snow is an alpen-glow orange and tells us secrets it has saved for us all these years. If we went to the winter-feeding grounds, we wouldn’t be able to appreciate how splendid the spring will be with the basking rays of sun on our necks and the swelling of the buds in the fruit trees. To truly appreciate warmth, we must first get cold, and that’s evidently a part of our lives that the geese won’t ever get to share. Of course, they seem quite content to sail on down the southern winds to the warm places, leaving us to wrap ourselves tighter in thicker clothes and dream of sandy beaches and snorkels. Have a good winter, geese. Eat a crab or two for me. You see, I’ll be here for you to honk at when you head north again in the spring. I’ll be right here, living in the same place. Cold or hot, windy or still, my world and my responsibilities are here, and I’ll be right here taking care of them. It’s my way of doing things, and I’m used to it.

Attorney from page 1A missed. “In my short time working with Mike, he was a real help to me because I had such confidence in his abilities,” said Discovery Bay General Manager Rick Howard. “He was just a very professional attorney who exuded confidence. When you spoke with him, you knew you were getting good advice.” McGrew’s resumé included a history degree in 1963 from UC Berkeley, where he also received his juris doctor from Hastings College of the Law at Berkeley in 1971. He was a member of

Caring from page 14A years ago by Brentwood resident Ed McClelland, a member of Creekside Church on O’Hara Avenue. For years, he’s quietly collected snacks, toiletries, socks and myriad bits of everyday America, scrounged up money for postage and shipped boxes of caring to troops overseas. Each box, scrawled with messages of support, is prayed over before being sent on its way. McClelland lost track of how many boxes he’s shipped over the years after the number topped 1,000 because, well, he doesn’t really care. “The quantity isn’t the big deal,” he said. “The prayer is the big deal.” Earlier this year, Creekside Church merged with other local churches to become Impact Church. Its home on O’Hara closed, and the congregation began meeting across town on Balfour Road. The only place the church’s name survives is through McClelland’s program and on a certificate of appreciation from the American Embassy in Kirkuk, Iraq. Eric Boettcher was the one who got the certificate. A lieutenant colonel in the Army Reserve, Boettcher and his wife, Maribeth, joined Creekside Church after moving to Brentwood in 2003. In 2005 came the first of three deployments for Boettcher’s unit, the B-451 Civil Affairs Battalion. While in Iraq, the unit provided the buffer between the Iraqi people and the coalition’s combat forces, helping to stabilize communities in preparation of turning control over to the Iraqi people. Working at the business end of the counter-insurgency effort, Boettcher’s unit provided humanitarian and logistical support to locals in Kirkuk, a city of 800,000 in northern Iraq. As they worked, care had to be taken to provide assistance equally to the many ethnic groups in one of the country’s most diverse cities. But Boettcher noticed things weren’t always equal. He learned of Ishtar School, a Christian elementary that had never been visited by coalition units and had never received the assistance given to others. Aid, he said, had mostly gone to where it would do the most good in earning trust, both to prepare for stable self-government and to protect American forces. “A happy populace keeps our soldiers safe,” he said, adding that the approach didn’t always seem fair. “It’s fine to give the love to Sunnis and Shias, but it isn’t fair to not give love to the Kurds, the Turkamens and the Assyrians (Christians)

the San Joaquin County Bar Association and the State Bar of California. In addition to his work in Discovery Bay, McGrew has also been counsel to the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO), numerous special districts including nearby Mountain House, as well as San Joaquin General Hospital, the Children and Families Commission and the Health Plan of San Joaquin. “There were just so many good things about Mike, both personally and professionally,” said Howard. “We’ll all miss him very much.” just because they behave.” It took a lot of discussion with his superiors, but Boettcher got permission to bring aid to Ishtar. For the month of August, 2005, every package sent from Creekside was for them. The operation helped improve the situation in the region to the point that it became the first in which coalition forces and Iraqi security forces worked together for Iraqi people of all ethnicities. “You can’t imagine what it’s like to see Shia children hugging Sunni soldiers,” Boettcher said. “It’s amazing.” For helping Boettcher’s mission, officials in Kirkuk produced a certificate of appreciation for Creekside Church. Boettcher paired it with a flag flown over the embassy, and presented it to the church. When Creekside closed, however, the items needed a new home, and Boettcher could not think of a more deserving recipient than McClelland. Last Sunday, Boetcher presented them to his friend, who shrugged off his desire for notoriety long enough to accept them for his “team.” “It’s not about showing off,” he would tell his re-assembled crew on Tuesday. “It’s about doing what we do.” With Boettcher and his unit home for now, Operation Creekside focuses its efforts on a steadily growing list of 269 overseas Americans. They work their way down the list, sending two boxes to each person, then starting over at the top of the list. Occasionally boxes come back, as in the case of a 24-year-old mother of two, who was killed in combat in 2008. Operation Creekside now benefits from donations from across the country, from individuals and corporations alike. Still, there is always a need for more, and the clockwork production of care packages continues twice per month, every month. And with every package is carried the prayers of the volunteers who packed it, along with the legacy of caring that, despite the demise of its namesake church, carries on. “The legacy continues,” Boettcher said Tuesday as the last of 58 more care packages were stuffed into McClleland’s truck. “It continues on through Ed.” To learn more about Operation Creekside or make a donation, e-mail McClelland at dockdocktor@yahoo.com.

Horse from page 1A details are sketchy. “I can’t confirm it,” said Pastorini, “but someone at the scene that night said that a second car hit Sweetheart when she was down in the road and flipped the car, and that the driver of the first car contacted the CHP the next morning saying that they thought they may have hit a horse. I don’t hold anything against anyone who might have been involved in the accident; in fact, my heart breaks for them. I can only imagine how horrible it was for them. I would just love to know if anyone had any information to help solve the other part of the issue.” The CHP accident report has not yet been released, but Dan Barrett, deputy director for Contra Costa County Animal Services, who was on the scene, described the incident. “We got a call that came in from the CHP at 2:20 a.m. that a horse had been hit by a car and was dead in the roadway,” said Barrett. “We went out there and took pictures for the owners to identify and then removed the remains. It was very sad, but things like this happen more than you think, and it’s a big concern, especially with an animal that size.” The Pastorinis, longtime residents of Discovery Bay, are no strangers to crime. On Christmas Eve three years ago, their home was robbed. Arriving home from a holiday outing, they found the front door open and their dog in the yard. The thieves had torn open gifts under the tree, taking only what they wanted, and made off with thousands of dollars worth of electronics, including

As for what future items might fall under the general fund umbrella, discussion at the CSD meeting included the possibility of community-center funds, the creation of a recreation league and expenses generated from the town’s advisory council (AC) functions not included in the town’s CSD duties. “At this time, we are not committing to anything,” said CSD President Kevin Graves at the Nov. 17 meeting. “We just need to have a spot to put it (T-Mobile funds). We’re just trying to get something set up. We’ll look at other options later.” The town executed the T-Mobile lease on Nov. 3. Once the contract is returned, the first payment of $2,000 will be issued to the town. When the building permits for the cell tower are pulled, the regular monthly payments of $2,000 to Discovery Bay will begin.

computers and portable game systems. One of the intruders even urinated on a nativity scene under the family Christmas tree. Now, with the recent theft and subsequent loss of their beloved horse, the family is once again rethinking how they live. “We had to change the way we lived after the robbery (in 2007) and now we have to change that again,” said Pastorini. “We’ve had our home robbed, two vehicles stolen and now this – it’s all very painful.” There is, however, one piece of good news stemming from the tragedy. Pastorini has learned that the horse that was also injured in the accident will be all right. “Amber was clipped on her hind quarters but made it back to the stable,” said Pastorini. “It looks like she is going be OK. That was a bright spot this week.” And as the Pastorinis work through their loss, they remain hopeful that information will surface from someone who saw what happened or has since spotted the gokart. “It’s likely that whoever stole the gokart likely travels that stretch of road regularly, or may have seen it there before,” said Pastorini. “Any information at all means we could finally find out what happened and who might be responsible for the theft and the negligence. “I’m sad for us and I’m sad for Discovery Bay. But for now I’m just trying to celebrate the time we had together. She was my baby.” Those with information on the incident should call 408-515-1339. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Liberty aims to stay on top by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer It will be up to twins and a bunch of underclassmen to help Liberty High’s varsity girls soccer team return to the top of the Bay Valley Athletic League this year. Junior Mikayla Farber, reigning co-offensive BVAL Player of the Year, and her sister Brianna, also an all-league pick, will lead a team of 15 freshmen and sophomores. Lions head coach Tony Martins said this is probably one of the youngest squads he’s coached, but he’s excited for the season. Freshman midfielder Quiana AshleyWhite has impressed the coach early on with her speed and work ethic. Goalkeeper Gabby Ciccolella and midfielder Paige Dudek are both sophomores from last season who will play a vital role now. “That’s going to be up to me and the staff to give them some experience really quickly,” Martins said. “We’re really pleased. It’s a hardworking group.” Also back from a Liberty team that went 18-3-4 overall (12-1-2 in league play) are senior defender Tatyana Martinez and senior midfielder Chandler Meyer. The Lions made it to the second round of the North Coast Section playoffs last year, but lost 3-1 to top-seed Castro Valley. Liberty will face a stiff challenge from an improving Heritage team, which finished second in the league last year, going 12-7-5 (8-3-4 BVAL). The Patriots lost in the first round of the NCS playoffs to San Ramon Valley.

Heritage will return a talented group of seniors, including goalkeeper Katie Barsanti, forward Ari Gordon and midfielder Mikayla Griggs. Gordon was co-offensive player of the year with Liberty’s Mikayla Farber; Barsanti and Griggs were both first-team all-league selections. Junior midfielder Kayla Hinojosa, a second-team all-BVAL player last year, will also be a key contributor this season. “We’re getting better,” head coach Randy James said. “We’ve got a pretty good group coming back.” Heritage will also look to newcomers, such as sophomore midfielder Taylor Allen, sophomore defender Viviana Diaz, freshman defender Sarah Toelkes and freshman forward Kylee Smith. Freedom, which ended last year 13-4-8 (8-3-4 in BVAL play), met the same fate as the Patriots – losing to San Ramon Valley in the second round of the playoffs. The Falcons will

restart their run for the postseason with plenty of familiar faces. Head coach Marc Crockett said the team lost only two starters to graduation. Senior goalkeeper Jessica Deno was responsible for seven shutouts last season and made 79 saves. Senior center midfielder Clarissa Diaz, a second-team all-league player, as well as juniors Kiki Simmons (forward) and Angel Goss (midfielder) will take on important leadership roles for the Falcons this season. Two seniors who missed major time last year with knee injuries – forward Krystal Espindola and Meghan Delamater – are healthy and ready to go. According to Crockett, Espindola showed a great ability to find the net in her senior year, a crucial factor this season. “I’m pretty hopeful that we’ll have a good season, barring any injuries,” he said. “We have a lot of see Liberty page 5B

EC Lions’ season ends The East County Lions Scouts played their hearts out during the last nine weeks and fought hard to end their season with a greater grasp of the game of football. Each of them looks forward to moving up to the Jr. Pee Wee level next season. The Jr. Pee Wees ended their season 5-4, earning them a first-round playoff berth, but fell to the Napa Saints. The Pee Wees posted a tough 4-5 season, but many new players look forward to returning next season. The Lions Jr. Midget team, entering the playoffs with a 6-3 record, suffered a heartbreaking loss to San Ramon T-Birds. This could have been the second year in a row for the Jr. Midget Lions to go all the way. The ECYF Midgets started their season with many injuries, depleting their ranks, and finished with a 4-5 record. The ECYF cheerleaders also found success at a recent competition at Great America. The Jr. Pee Wee team earned two third-place trophies. The Pee Wees took two firsts, the Junior Midgets placed first and third, and the Midgets finished fourth and first. At Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, both the Jr. Pee Wees and Pee Wee cheerleaders earned two gold medals, but the Jr. Midgets and Midgets were rained out.

lead the Falcons out of the BVAL cellar they occupied last season. That Freedom will return only a few players from last season’s squad might also help change the culture of losing. The young Falcon squad includes two freshmen and six sophomores. “We’ve had some workouts and conditioning and I see a vast improvement from last year to this year,” said Nunez. “We’ve got kids who really want to play. We’ve come in here with a plan; we’ve really worked them out, and they have really responded.” Another young team is the Antioch Panthers. Although they finished in fourth place a season ago, they did manage a win against Heritage. The Panthers boast only three returning players, none of whom logged much playing time last season. Notable omissions from last season’s team are center Tatjana Pitts and point guard Erica Beverly. “I like to press for most of the game. I like to press, I like to run, and that’s the kind of team we have this year,” said head coach Ventura Armenta, who expects tough competition within the league this season. The Pittsburg Pirates also have a new coach in Matthew Lane. While only four seniors occupy the roster, Pittsburg does return leading scorer junior La’Keisha Ward, who plays both guard and forward. Ward averaged 10.2 points per game last season. Pittsburg lost the first game of the season 59-52 to Castlemont on Nov. 20, and now looks ahead to the Modesto Christian Tournament, which starts Dec. 9. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

the Patriots are young, Tamony is optimistic that their size – six girls at 5 feet 9 inches or taller – can help them run Tamony’s modified triangle offense. “We’re young,” said Tamony. “I’m looking for your basic fundamentals. Mostly man-to-man but we will press, because we’ve got some athleticism. It’s going to be scorer by committee.” After beating Heritage three times in the regular season, the Liberty Lions (19-9 overall, 11-4 in league) finished last season with a bitter taste in their mouths, losing to the Patriots in the playoffs. Gone from that team is league MVP center Corinne Costa and her 15 points per game. Filling her void is junior center Bernadette Fong, who averaged 10 points and seven rebounds per contest as a sophomore. What hurt the Lions last season was a lack of perimeter scoring. If their opening game was any indicator, the void will be filled by junior guard Shaunikie Lee, who scored 15 points in Liberty’s 63-32 victory against Newark Memorial. Lee trailed only Fong, who led the Lions with 18. Sophomore guard Erin Morgan netted nine points, while sophomore guard/forward Gabrielle Freeman and senior guard Ally Mackenzie tallied eight and seven. Like so many teams in the league, the Freedom Falcons also have a new coach, Albert Nunez.

Local bodybuilders shine on big stage by Michael Dixon Correspondent

Noelle Decker, left, and her bodybuilding trainee Angela Melissare competed in the recent National Physique Committee Sacramento Championships. Decker won the women’s unlimited competition and placed second in a masters event. Melissare placed fifth in a masters event.

Two local bodybuilders excelled at the recent National Physique Committee Sacramento Championships. Noelle Decker, a trainer at Brentwood’s Delta Valley Athletic Club (DVAC), took second place in the women’s masters event, over-35 tall division and won the women’s unlimited competition. In addition to Decker’s accomplishments, Angela Melissare, whom Decker trains, took fifth place in the women’s masters competition, over-35, under 5-3 division. “It’s the biggest show in California,” said Decker of the event that attracts more than 300 competitors from around the country. “It’s the last pro qualifier and we’re all trying to turn pro.” Her performance in Sacramento earned Decker a trip to the nationals, scheduled for July of 2011 in Las Vegas. That event attracts an international field of bodybuilders seeking their pro card. Bodybuilding is a sport that Decker, 44, began nearly 30 years ago as an alternative to team sports. She describes her current involvement in bodybuilding as virtually a second job. In addition to her primary duties as a personal trainer at DVAC, she immerses herself in bodybuilding training six days a week. “It’s grueling; it tests your mettle. If you have to do the diet for this competition, it’s eye opening,” said Decker. “It’s kind of like putting yourself through a starvation period, and

Perfect season for Pats t the outset of summer, it wasn’t even known if Liberty Union High School District would offer freshmen sports this year. But thanks to the community’s donations, every high school was able to maintain freshman sports programs. Through all the uncertainty, the Heritage freshman football team kept practicing like it was business as usual. The Patriots finished the year with a perfect 10-0. Not only did they go unbeaten; they did it by dominating every team they faced. The Heritage freshman squad scored an impressive 402 points and allowed only 34 points all season. It also became the first Heritage football team, at any level, to go undefeated.

you really get a chance to understand things about yourself.” Something that gives Decker great pride is the recognition that she gets from members of Delta Valley Athletic Club, who have admired her effort and devotion to bodybuilding over the years and are now seeing her enjoy the rewards. Despite the personal accomplishments, what gives Decker her greatest joy is seeing the accomplishments of Melissare, a 38-year old mother of three. Despite her high finish, Melissare is still relatively new to the world of competitive bodybuilding. “She walks a little different now,” Decker said of Melissare. “She comes in and holds her head up a little higher.” The potential of success as a bodybuilder isn’t limited to Decker and Melissare. Decker’s role as a trainer at DVAC allows her to inspire – and help push to new heights – women with similar goals. Decker hopes her success and that of Melissare will raise awareness of the Brentwood fitness club, which would bring more local notoriety to bodybuilding. While her clients aren’t limited to women in their late 30s and above, that’s the group she most wants to encourage to participate in her training sessions in particular and bodybuilding in general. “My goal has always been to help people, especially now that I’m older, and train women my age to have more confidence and more self esteem,” Decker said. “To realize that at 40, you can be your best.” Further information on the Delta Valley Athletic Club can be found at www.deltavac.com.

Lions rule the pool The following athletes were recently named to the boys water polo All-Bay Valley Athletic League team: MVP: JT Sarmento, Liberty. First team: JT Sarmento, Liberty; Jase Roessler, Liberty; Ty Elder, Heritage; Kurt Holzmuller, Heritage; Travis West, Heritage; Trevor Dobbins, Deer Valley; Leo Colbert, Liberty; Alex Soderberg, Liberty. Second team: Alex Bilderback, Deer Valley; Dalton Weger, Freedom; Logan Trudell, Liberty; Andrew Wayne, Deer Valley; Zachary Irwin, Freedom; Carter Haines, Heritage; Mike McGoldrick, Antioch; John Palazzoto Jr., Heritage. Honorable mention: Soloman Abuda, Deer Valley; Jackson Bahns, Heritage; Zach Oetgen, Freedom; Kevin Hendricks, Antioch.

Liberty from page 2B team unity … and our core is pretty much the same as last year.” The Antioch Panthers finished fourth in the BVAL last season with a 13-8-4 record (7-6-2 against league teams), but fell in the first playoff round to Castro Valley. Antioch was motivated by its first-ever post-season run and looks to make it back this season, albeit without players such as Melissa Holmes and Dallas Butterfield, who were all-BVAL selections last year and have graduated. The Panthers will be a young team this year, fielding only four seniors. Head coach Scott Joseph said he could pencil as many as four freshmen into his starting lineup. It will be up to seniors – midfielder Gianna Lucido, defender Paige Bickford, goalkeeper Kaitlyn Mackusick and striker Jessica Huerta – to bring the underclassmen up to speed. Huerta led the team with 15 goals and 31 assists last season. Joseph said some of the freshmen on this team could make a definite impression, including midfielder Ashley Scannell and forward Kailee Soares. Deer Valley hopes to bounce back from a season in which the Wolverines went 6-12-4 overall and 2-9-3 in BVAL play. Deer Valley will count on the leadership of senior defender Bryanna Cooper as well as junior defender Brianna Pickens and junior midfielders Samantha Martin and Lauren Ayers. The Wolverines’ strong underclassman contingent features sophomore midfielder Alyssa Slate, sophomore midfielder/forward Taylor Cooper (Bryanna’s sister) and freshman forward Sidne Spencer. Head coach Jesse Zuniga has been impressed with the way the girls have worked together so far. “They are workhorses, they’re in great shape and their attitude is fantastic,” Zuniga said of the younger players. “They’re really challenging the others.” Pittsburg started the season in search of its first win since Jan. 30, 2007, when the Pirates topped Ygnacio Valley 1-0. Pittsburg went 0-19 last year, 14 of those losses against league foes. The Pirates got the first “W” out of the way early, beating Mt. Diablo 2-1. As of Monday, Pittsburg is 2-0-2. Through those first four games, freshman forward Camille Thompson leads the team in scoring with four goals. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Rookies West running back Devan Lance dashes for a 60-yard touchdown run.

Photo courtesy of Tracey Goodwin

Super wins for Patriots The Delta Patriots Rookies West won their first-ever Super Bowl against the Weston Ranch Ravens in a dominant performance led by Jordan Suckow’s three touchdowns, Josh Capps’ touchdown and a 60-yard run by Devan Lance. The defense – spearheaded by Lance, Nicky Einess, Anthony Kimmons, Suckow, Ethan Eggert and Dominic Littlejohn – set a DYSA league record, allowing only 14 points the entire season, including 10 shutouts. The Rookies West finished the season with a sparkling 11-2 record. Delta Patriots Starts North The Delta Patriots Starts North put their top-ranked defense on display as they brought their outstanding season to a climax by beating the Weston Ranch

Ravens 7-0. The Ravens’ tough defense kept the hard-working Patriot running back committee of Justice Jackson, Ryan Guenette, Jacob Spomer and Austin Kresley out of the end zone during regulation play. Continuing their postseason dominance, the Patriots’ defensive front eight – Guenette, Bradley Sides, Spomer, Jackson, Nolan Phillips, Sean Casey, Parker Keller and Dylan Seeley – shut down the Ravens’ balanced offense. In overtime, the Starts North QB Kurosh Aryen scored the game-winning touchdown on a quarterback keeper from a yard out. The defense clinched the victory with Casey’s forced fumble, ending the Ravens’ chance for a tie.

Foundation makes wishes come true by Marla Luckhardt There was a movie out a while ago called “The Bucket List.” We all have things we would like to do but keep putting off in lieu of life, obligations and daily routines. The list of things I want in my bucket isn’t long. Sure, I’d love to see Billy Joel in concert or Bette Midler, my two favorite singers, but for the most part I do and have done everything I want to and can do. I can honestly say I am blessed and very lucky. The Make a Wish Foundation is well known for granting wishes to critically and terminally ill children, making dreams come true for children who need a happy boost. Locally we can be proud of a nonprofit organization called An Elderly Wish, which is run by Executive Director and “angel” Mary Chapman. The criteria are simple: the recipient must over 60 years of age, diagnosed with a terminal or life threatening illness, and a resident of Contra Costa County. Anyone can refer a recipient to Mary. An Elderly Wish began when Rebecca Crowder’s mother wanted to go play “her one-arm bandit” in Reno one more time. Courtesy of one of the Reno hotels, she spent a few days doing just that and

shortly after her return, she passed away. That memory was a joy for her daughter and was the beginning of the foundation founded by Rebecca. From seeing a loved one to catching a few big ones on a fishing trip to watching a favorite sports team, the wishes are granted with love and, most of all, dignity. An Elderly Wish also provides simple things such as getting a watch repaired to bequeath to a grandchild, or a phone card to make sure that no matter the distance, recipients know they’re remembered. These are all part of An Elderly Wish’s possible good deeds. You name it and they’ll try to make it happen. An Elderly Wish is always in need of sponsors, but Mary tells me she’s also looking for wishes. If you know someone who’d like to have a wish come true, call 925-978-1883 and let An Elderly Wish put a smile on the face of someone you love. There’s no charge for this, and the memory will fill your heart for the rest of your days. That I can guarantee. Marla Luckhardt is a Discovery Bay resident and member of the East Contra Costa Senior Coalition. She works with several local senior care and advocacy groups.
