The first in a series of public meetings aimed at informing residents of the need for a new tax for fire service drew a small but inquisitive crowd in Discovery Bay on Monday. About 30 district residents turned out to hear a presentation from the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District Chief Hugh Henderson, along with ECCFPD Board President Kevin Romick, board member Bob Kenny and Discovery Bay resident Bob Mankin. The session began with some sobering realities. Plummeting property values and a tax-sharing formula established in 1978 has

prevented the district from keeping up with the increased demand for services. Two of the district’s eight stations were closed last year, and funds were eliminated for replacement engines, fire station maintenance, weed abatement programs and other preventative operations. Nevertheless, the district spent $2.8 million more than it took in last year, making up the difference with reserves. Those reserves, however, are about to run out. If additional revenue is not found, next July the district will be forced to close three more stations and lay off half its 48 firefighters, leaving three stations (one each in Brentwood, Discovsee Fire page 17A

Vasco improvements moving along Staff Writer The first phase of improvements to one of East County’s most vital commuter routes has been completed, as local politicians recently celebrated the new safer drive on Vasco Road.

on the widened of southbound Vasco to provide a truck-climbing lane, eliminating the gap in existing truck climbing lanes along the road. Local officials feel that these improvements – one of three proposed stages of improvements on Vasco Road – will make for a safer commute between Brentwood and Livermore. According to a press release from the office of Contra Costa County Supervisor Mary Piepho, roughly 20,000 cars utilize Vasco Road every day. “Anything we can do to improve quality of life in a safety environment for East County is quite a tribute,” said Brentwood Mayor and Contra Costa Transportation Authority commissioner Bob Taylor. “That is such an important artery to many East County residents.” Taylor was one of many dignitaries on hand for a recent grand-opening ceremony.

HALO opens animal shelter in Oakley by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

After years of operating as a foster organization, Homeless Animals’ Lifeline Organization (HALO) finally has a home. HALO House opened its new Oakley location the last weekend of October and recently hosted an open house, inviting the community to tour the facility at 215 Second St., formerly the Oakley fire station. For HALO President Tamara Reed, HALO House is a dream come true. “Having our own shelter and adoption center allows us the opportunity to find homes for more animals looking for a family to love,” Reed said during the grand opening earlier this month. “We adopted out five pets in our first weekend and then nine the following week. Things are going really well.” HALO House features a cat room set up with kitty condos and a lounge area for future pet owners to sit and interact with the cats to find the best fit for their family. Likewise, the dog room is set up with a series of spacious kennels complete with food, water, toys and a dog bed. Visitors and volunteers can meet with dogs in the kennel, take them outside to run or hang out in the dog lounge and cuddle up on the couch with a furry friend. To make sure the animals are well cared for while at HALO House, HALO volunteers are always present at the facility – even staying overnight to care for the animals. “The whole idea for HALO House is that families can come in and get to know a dog or cat in a relaxed setting,” Reed said. “We want to help find the perfect pet for each family and we want to find the right home for each pet. While the animals are here, our volunteers make sure the animals get plenty of love before they find the right family.” HALO, run entirely by a dedicated group of volunteers, rescues dogs and cats from local animal shelters.

Festival of Trees to share the joy by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Novelist Edna Ferber wrote that “Christmas isn’t a season, it’s a feeling” and that feeling was on full display this month at the inaugural Festival of Trees event in Brentwood. The three-day affair, which debuted Dec. 2, featured a variety of trees, wreaths and centerpieces decorated by local individuals, organizations and businesses. Placed first on display, the holiday trees and decorations were later sold, the proceeds benefiting local nonprofit and service organizations. The festival also featured special events such as the Teddy Bear Breakfast, Sparkling Wines and Twinkling Trees open house and Brunch Among the Trees. Public viewing hours ran throughout the three days and featured live entertainment, food and refreshments, including wines from local vendors. “It was definitely a success,” said Nancy Torres, one of the organizers of the festival. “We were at capacity for the wine tasting and Teddy Bear Breakfast. Honestly I don’t think we could have gotten another child in the door for the teddy bear event. It was really wonderful.” Though the final numbers have yet to be tallied, Torres said the event turned a profit, and money will be allocated to this year’s designated organizations. Recipients

pleased and grateful for all the volunteers; some even donated storage. There wouldn’t have been a festival without them. “This is the kind of event that I think is a nice addition to the events that the community already has – such as the CornFest and Art, Wine and Jazz Festival – that people like to get behind. We’re looking forward to next year.”

And now that the inaugural festival is in the books, organizers are already looking at ways to improve the event for next year. “We’re looking at what worked and what didn’t and what we can maybe do differently next time,” said Torres, who added that interest was expressed in creating more open-house hours to allow folks to come and stroll through the festival. “We were so

Jewish congregations in East County are holding a pair of events celebrating Chanukah, the eight-day holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. The public is invited to both events. Chanukah Festival Chabad of the Delta, a Jewish outreach and awareness organization, invites the public to Brentwood’s second annual outdoor Chanukah Festival on Thursday, Dec. 22 – the third evening of the eight-day holiday – from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at The Streets of Brentwood, 2565 Sand Creek Road. The event features food, music and a fire-juggling show followed by the lighting of a 9-foot-tall Menorah (Chanukah candelabra) that will be set up at The Streets for the duration of the Chanukah holiday. Chanukah begins Tuesday evening, Dec. 20 and continues through Dec. 28. It commemorates the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem following the Jews’ victory over the ancient Assyrian-Greek Empire, which sought to prevent the Jews from practicing their faith. Chanukah also propagates the universal message that ultimately good will prevail over evil, freedom over oppression and light over darkness. “The significance of Chanukah today is a reconfirmation of faith and hope,” said Rabbi Dovber Berkowitz, Director of Chabad of the Delta. “Brentwood’s public

Menorah lighting proclaims the universal message of religious freedom and tolerance so critical in light of today’s world situation. In ancient times our ancestors rededicated the Temple in Jerusalem with the Menorah. Today, we rededicate ourselves to making this world a better and brighter place. We look forward to welcoming everyone at a warm and happy celebration.” For further information, visit www.jewishdelta.com or call 925-238-8770. Chabad of the Delta meets at 288 Mountain View Drive in Brentwood. Hanukkah party Congregation B’nai Torah invites the

public to its annual Hanukkah party on Saturday, Dec. 17 at 6 p.m. at St. George’s Church, 301 East 13th St. in Antioch. Attendees are invited to share in the potluck dinner by bringing their favorite non-meat dish, and are welcome to bring their favorite menorah for a group candle lighting. The family-friendly event features music, games, fabulous food and fun. For further information, e-mail Matt Cordova at mattjcord@comcast.net. B’nai Torah meets the first Friday of the month at 7:30 p.m. and the second and fourth Saturdays of the month at 10 a.m. at St. George’s Church. For more information, visit www.bnaitoraheastbay.org.

Boat parade sails into the holidays by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Photos by Stacey Chance

Top, Margaret and Ron Puccinelli’s Tolly Ho took home the award for the Most Enthusiastic Crew in the Mid-size Boat category last weekend during Discovery Bay’s annual Lighted Boat Parade. Above, with Rudolph leading the way, this spectacular ship heralded the season.

Under a brilliant moon and clear skies, participants in the Discovery Bay Lighted Boat Parade celebrated the spirit of the season last weekend during the community’s annual water-based show. “We had a terrific turnout,” said Event Organizer Linda Loveland. “People put so much effort into their entries, and it was as much fun to watch the parties from the boats as it was to watch the boats from the parties.” Hosted by the Discovery Bay Yacht Club, this year’s Toys for Children theme attracted 18 entries from club and non-club members alike, who outdid themselves in a spectacular display of ingenuity, imagination and inspiration. Yacht Club member and CSD Director Mark Simon, a longtime attendee of the Discovery Bay boat parade, agreed this year’s entries and spectators were some of the parade’s finest. “I can tell you that this year I witnessed more enthusiasm and team spirit than at any parade in the past,” said Simon. “The boats were fantastic, the crowds were totally in party mode and you couldn’t buy an empty seat at the yacht club during the awards. This was by far one of the most enjoyable parades I’ve ever seen.” Decorated boats included pirate ships, Santa sleighs, flying reindeer and entries festooned with Christmas trees, gift-wrapped

packages, candy canes and snowflakes. “It was a great evening,” said Loveland. “Everyone had a great time.” The Yacht Club’s next big event is the Opening Day Parade in April. For more information, call Chet or Linda Loveland at 925-516-7286. The following are this year’s winners: Commodore’s Cup Grace and Mike Milne for their perfect pirate ship, complete with mermaid prow, sparkling crow’s nest and enthusiastic crew.

PLEASE BE ADVISED... Have you ever heard that saying, “If it’s not in writing, it doesn’t count?� Well, never was that more true than right now in regards to our real estate and mortgage mess. The number of people applying for loan modifications and/or dealing with a potential foreclosure of their home is at an all-time high. When you call into your lender/servicer, you almost never deal with the same person. And it seems like the story changes from day to day. I’ve had clients call their lender and be told their loan mod is approved one day, only to have foreclosure commence the next day. And no matter how much you point out what “Bob� at their office said last week, it doesn’t seem to matter. Well, here is an idea to turn the tables on them that comes from www.hansonlawfirm.com. You’ve probably noticed how your lender tells you that the call is being recorded for “quality� or “training� purposes? Well, how about you do the same? First, consult an attorney before trying this. Then go buy a cheap hand-held tape-recorder. When you get a bank representative on the phone, tell them that you would like to record the

call so that you have a legal record of the call and so that there is no confusion later. Ask them to state their full name, and to give you some kind of identification. Either an employee ID #, or date of birth, or last five digits of their social security number. If they won’t talk to you under those circumstances, you can ask “Why?� In theory, they shouldn’t mind, because they are probably recording the call on their end. And they wouldn’t be telling you anything that isn’t legal and authorized by the bank, right? And you can count on what they tell you verbally, right? Remember that most banks are required by Federal law to try to work out some kind of solution to your mortgage problem. So if you can show that they refuse to talk to you, they could be in hot water. If nothing else, it’s fun to make THEM squirm a little on the phone... If you have questions on this or any other real estate topic, call me at (925) 240MOVE (6683).

Student artists showcased by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

When the offices of Pegnim & Ivancich, LLP in Antioch needed sprucing up, the law firm called on the students of Freedom High School to add color to the halls. Pegnim & Ivancich, LLP recently hosted a student art show, displaying the works of 24 student artists, as a way to contribute to the community. “Pegnim & Ivancich has been eager to support local schools after having been part of the community for over 20 years,” said Pegnim & Ivancich Youth Foundation Secretary Michael Peterson. “We started with Freedom High School because we heard about their art program wanting to have an art show for their students and thought this would be an excellent way for our office to become involved.” Based on the success of this first show, the firm plans to host a show each quarter, featuring work by students at other area high schools. For the Freedom show, Pegnim & Ivancich purchased frames and matting to give each student’s work a professional look, which was a surprise to the students featured in the show. “Initially, students were excited about showing their artwork in a public space, but once they saw their artwork actually framed and on the wall, they were amazed at seeing their work shown so

Icon from page 7A reader. “I will miss so many things about Bonnie,” said Fairhurst. “But one of the big things will be her comments on current events. Bonnie read the paper every day, and when she got to work we would discuss it. She was very well educated and the most well-read person I’ve ever known. She was a voracious reader.” Born in Tuscola, Ill., Bonnie graduated from the University of Oregon and moved around the country throughout the years with her husband, but eventually came back to East County in 1985 and settled in Bethel Island. For all her accomplishments, hard work and community cargiving, her greatest gift, according to son Darin Nelms, was her love for her family. “Very simply, she was the greatest mother that ever lived,” said Nelms. “She stood behind me no matter what, even when I was a handful – and I was. She was straightforward and matter-of-fact, never over emotional. She just told it like it was. But she was the most loving person I ever knew. I will miss her: I miss her already. It’s a hard loss.” Funeral services were private, but a memorial is planned for early 2012. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Police investigate Walmart robberies by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer As Antioch officers investigate two armed robberies outside an Antioch store, police warn residents to take extra care when shopping this holiday season. According to Antioch Police Detective Santiago Castillo, two incidents of armed robbery have been reported outside the Walmart on Lone Tree Way. On Nov. 27 at about 8:30 p.m., two men ordered two women to give up their purses at gunpoint in the Walmart parking lot. The robbers then fled west toward Jack in the Box. Two days later, at around 9:30 p.m., two more women were robbed as they walked into the store. “We do have video surveillance, so the case is still open,” Castillo said. “It’s still an active investigation. In either of these incidences, nobody was hurt.” In response to the crimes, Walmart assistant manager Roger Anderson said that the store has increased its security. An inquiry to the company’s public relations office was not returned prior to deadline. Robbery victim Jessica Walton of Bethel Island described the incident in an e-mail to The Press, and other women have posted on Facebook warnings against shopping alone at

Walmart. Walton claimed that two men snatched her mother’s purse and put a gun to her face. When Walton followed the men, she said they fired three shots at her. Walton was also critical of the store’s management and security firm, which she felt did nothing to stop the crime. “It is much more than them taking a purse and waving a gun,“ Walton wrote. “It’s our peace of mind and inconvenience it is just to go shopping. I want these kids to know that it is not okay and they will be caught.” Castillo said the department sees an uptick in theft around this time of year. He urged shoppers to be aware of their environment and make sure they park in a well-lit area. “You don’t want to park in the dark part of the parking lot,” Castillo said. “Most criminals like the cover of darkness.” The detective said thieves know that people tend to carry more cash and gift cards this time of year. If you have a lot of cash on hand or are carrying several gifts, try to avoid shopping at night. He also advised women shopping at night to not carry money in their purses, but in a pocket or somewhere not as accessible to robbers. “The best way for people to be safe,” Castillo said, “is to be cognizant of their surroundings.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

East Contra Costa Fire Protection District Chief Hugh Henderson discusses the need for a new fire tax at the first of a series of public meetings planned for throughout the district. The meeting took place in Discovery Bay.

Fire from page 1A ery Bay and Oakley) and 24 firefighters to protect the 250-square-mile district’s 105,000 residents. Following Henderson’s state-of-thedistrict update, one audience member asked if full-time staffing could be augmented by volunteers or paid-on-call (POC) firefighters, such as those the district depended on prior to the building boom. “In the 1980s and ’90s, those programs worked well,” Henderson said. “But people stopped living and working in the area, and call volumes are higher.” The district now handles about 20 calls per day. Combined with required training of about 24 hours a month, the need was more than POCs could commit to, and the last station fully staffed by POCs – Knightsen – went to full-time staffing five years ago. “We couldn’t depend on the fact that that engine was going to respond every time,” said Henderson. A full-time crew of two firefighters has been stationed at Knightsen since 2006. Others in the audience raised questions about automatic increases in the proposed tax and whether those would be imposed for a defined term. Henderson said the measure’s final wording was still being completed, but that it would likely include a 5-percent annual escalator for inflation and increasing retirement costs. As currently envisioned, he said, the tax would not contain a sunset clause due to the uncertain economy and the dim prospects for passing another tax in the near future should costs continue to rise.

Graves said that because last year’s station closures took place in Discovery Bay and Byron, he wanted to know that the new tax would mean the re-opening of one of those stations. Henderson responded that the plan called for a seventh district station to open in five years, but in a location determined by the call volume and response times in the district at that time. Discovery Bay currently contributes $1.5 million in taxes to the district. It requires $1.9 million to operate each of the district’s current stations, including Discovery Bay’s current Station 59 on Bixler Road. Meetings will continue to be held throughout the district between now and the planned election next June. Oakley will host the next general community meeting on Jan. 17 at Oakley City Hall.

Vasco from page 1A Augmenting the work completed on the road proper were retaining walls, storm drains, wildlife crossings and a bridge widening. The recently completed phase, which broke ground in May of 2010, cost $11.8 million, paid for by a cornucopia of sources including federal stimulus money, state Proposition 1B cash, Measure J funds and other local dollars. Officials now turn their attention to the second phase, in which a concrete median barrier will be erected along a roughly 1.5-mile stretch of Vasco Road north of the recently completed work. Some of the planned projects for phase two include roadway widening to make room for the barrier, bridge widening

over Brushy Creek and construction of retaining walls and storm drains. The second phase of the Vasco Road Safety Improvement Project has been touted as shovel-ready and comes with a price tag of $14 million. The Contra Costa County Public Works Department is still looking for money to complete the funding for phase two. So far, the project has drawn federal stimulus cash plus funding from Proposition 1B and other local sources. “As long as I’m involved in transportation, the boards and everything that I’m on, it will have high priority on the mayor’s list,” Taylor said of the second phase. “The improvements are incredible.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

EDITORIALS, LETTERS & COMMENTARY

Oakley A/V system delivered as promised Editor: To clear the air on the Oakley City Council Chambers audio/video system, the system installed was designed to provide audio and video of the events taking place inside the chamber. The system was not designed nor contracted to be placed on the Internet or other outside media locations. This topic was brought up after the system was installed and paid for. The audio and video can certainly be placed on outside devices at additional cost. This was discussed and, to my knowledge because of current budget constraints, has gone no further. With all the mudslinging going on, I want to be sure my company is not added to the list. We completed the contract and the system works as designed and agreed on. I am unaware at this time of any malfunctions or problems in the system, nor have we been contacted about any issues. Doug Scheer President, Scheer Home Systems

Don’t support the power grab

Editor: The recall is headed by the same group of angry, destructive people who have brought repeated stress and turmoil to our community over the years. Some of them have filed meritless lawsuits against the CSD and they send in countless requests for thousands of pages of data – both of which have cost the town time and dollars – and some have viciously attacked community leaders in blogs and the local newspapers. They backed the failed 2010 campaigns of Walter MacVittie and Jonathan Silver. Dawson’s win in last year’s election stopped them from having a majority on the CSD (along with their allies Mark Simon and Ray Tetreault), which would have allowed their interests to prevail in all town business. It seems that this recall effort is Plan B. Then Director Dawson had some per-

sonal problems with his family that became very public, though they have nothing to do with his public office. I do not defend what may have happened in the Dawson home, but using this private matter as fodder for a recall seems like a cheap way to give their candidates another shot at a seat on the board. However, throughout what must be a very difficult time for Dawson and his family, has he shirked his responsibilities at the CSD? No. Has he continued to work hard on the key issues that face us, including our water and sewer systems, parks and potential community center? Yes. Is the CSD making important steps forward because of Dawson’s efforts and leadership? Absolutely. Brian’s wife Jessica has stated verbally and in writing that she supports her husband and that they are working through their personal, family matters. She has asked us to respect her family’s desire for privacy. The Dawsons have two young daughters, one of whom is old enough to read her father’s name in the newspaper. Disrespecting Mrs. Dawson’s requests on behalf of her family, the same angry, power-hungry crowd instead have used Brian Dawson’s mistake as a golden opportunity to overturn last November’s election. That is clearly what this is about. Last Friday we saw a very expensive sticker advertisement on the front cover of The Press. Claiming that they’re concerned about “family values,” the unidentified purchasers encourage people to help the Dawson recall. You must be kidding! They want control; they want the taxpayers to be forced to pay for a second, unnecessary election. (Aren’t we in the middle of a recession, with government bodies small and large tightening their belts?) As far as family values are concerned, I’ll honor the requests of the Dawson family. Please don’t support the power grab. Ashton Rogers Discovery Bay

Hit-and-run witnesses wanted

Editor: While riding my bicycle on Thursday, Dec. 8 at approximately 4:05 p.m., I was hit by a truck at the intersection of Discovery Bay Boulevard and Sandpoint/Willow Lake roads. I was obeying the rules of the road, had stopped my bike at the stop sign, waited for my turn as if I were in a car, then got rammed because the young man in a truck coming from Willow Lake Road was either texting or simply not paying attention to the fact that I was in the crosswalk. He was not looking straight ahead, but rather down and to his left. Once he realized he had hit me, he slowed down a bit. When he saw me standing up and looking down the boulevard at him (along with a motorist that had stopped and had gotten out of his car to see if I was OK), he put the pedal to the metal and sped off.

EDITOR

Luckily my bike and I were unscathed (except for the bruises I sustained on my legs and rear from dancing out of my bicycle as it flipped and flopped to the ground). I flagged down a passing Sheriff, who took chase, but it was too late at that point to catch the truck. Many thanks to Deputy Londono of the Sheriff’s Department for coming to my house to take a report (he had another Sheriff with him, but his name escapes me – many thanks to him, too). I am saddened that this individual did not stop. I am furious that he may have been texting. I am incredulous that despite the fact that there were about six cars at the stop sign at the time, only one young man got out of his vehicle. I guess people were too cozy in their nice, warm vehicles than to have to get out and see if they could help. I was unable to get the license plate number of the truck, so he will probably never receive the citation he so deserves. In this day and age of cell phones with cameras, I am disappointed I did not have one with me, and that no one so much as rolled down their window to take a photo of the fleeing vehicle so that I could at least get a good description of it for the Sheriff. If anyone reading this happened to witness this event, I would appreciate it if you call the Sheriff’s Department (report #11-21341). Perhaps you got a good look at the truck. I was just a bit stunned at the time and was unable to 100 percent determine the color, make and model. Teri Sandholdt Discovery Bay

Yes, love is louder

Editor: This is in response to Ms. Kate Riley’s letter to the editor, “Louder than bullying,” in the Nov. 25 edition of The Press. I agree with Ms. Riley. As Americans, we protect and speak up for younger, smaller, weaker people. Sometimes it seems as if there is nothing in the world except bullying. Our own parents with bad influences on them were our worst, most dangerous bullies. Sadly, I realize now, it was because they had been/were being severely bullied. “Bullying” can be classified as “An unAmerican activity.” It seems to me that when the bullying occurs at school, the teachers could and should intervene and should be held responsible for such intervention. There was a story on the Internet a few years ago about a father talking to his “bully” son. Each time his son insulted or bullied someone, his father made him drive a nail into a fence post. Each time the boy apologized to the insulted and/or bullied person, the boy could pull a nail out of the fence post; however, the father told the boy to notice that, although he had apologized to the person, the hole was still there. The 30 Human Rights chartered in with the United Nations/UN in 1947 have

been suppressed; however, the UN meant for these rights to be taught, immediately, in all schools, kindergarten through graduate school, throughout the Earth. One of the Human Rights is that we have the right to feel secure in our person. Along these lines, I think that classes in etiquette should be taught in our schools. Then, if a stranger enters a group and does not properly introduce himself/herself or does another breach of etiquette and/or manners, the group would know they are in bad company and would expel the person from their group or walk away from him/her themselves. Here is an excerpt from a catholic writing: “‘Justice’ is a virtue that calls us to render to persons what is their right. It is not a gift of charity and good works; it is a call and even a command from The Creator to a lifestyle. It is impossible for anyone to be … (American) and practice just behavior on a casual basis.” Earleen Crosswhite Antioch

Well done, Walmart

Editor: I wanted to thank the Antioch Walmart for the excellent job they did organizing the Black Friday sale at their store. I waited in line with about 200 other people and everyone was polite and got along great. People were talking about the sales items they wanted and guessing how many would be available. They shared chairs, refreshments and got along just fine. There was a lot of security and everything went smoothly. Employees came out and provided everyone with a store map of where sales items were located. When the store opened, everyone walked in calmly while an employee was waiting to provide shoppers with a cart. Every sales item was labeled and priced. There were employees at the different locations with numbers and clipboards, keeping track of how many items were on hand and how many had been sold. You were given a number, walked to the end of the aisle and someone took your number and gave you the sales item. Any accessory that you might possibly need was displayed with the sales item, such as the video camera I purchased. The case and additional memory cards were right with the camera. Shoppers were friendly and polite to each other. Every cash register was open, and an additional employee was directing customers where to check out. It took only 15 minutes for me to check out. I want to congratulate the management and all the wonderful employees that made the most enjoyable shopping I have ever experienced on Black Friday. Job well done, Antioch Walmart.

ECYFL family aids founder’s cancer fight by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

Gale Camilli isn’t one to ask for help. One of the co-founders of the 20year-old East County Youth Football League (ECYFL), Camilli usually arrives at the stadium by 6 a.m. to help set up, and offers her services for anything to aid the Lions. Then in July, she heard the news. For the second time in two years, Camilli was diagnosed with cancer. One year after defeating breast cancer, she must now battle the deadly disease in her lungs. Camilli keeps a smile on her face throughout her ordeal, including radiation and chemotherapy sessions. She said her husband and ECYFL co-founder Mario Camilli and their family were actually more worried when she received the diagnosis. Gale started treatment in September. “I’m kind of a positive person,” Gale said. “I said, ‘OK, what do we have to do next to get rid of it?’” Cancer doesn’t care about schedules. This season, one of the more fruitful in recent ECYFL history, Gale has tried to maintain her normal routine but the can-

Gale and Mario Camilli, co-founders of the East County Youth Football League, have been touched by the outpouring of support for Gale’s battle against lung cancer. cer has wreaked havoc on her energy level. She has continued some of her duties from home, namely her work as the organization’s treasurer, but hasn’t been able to be as active as she prefers. “When she got sick, I was crumbling;

I was a basket case walking around the field,” Mario said. “All of a sudden, we had all this support.” Luckily, Gale has been able to rely on the Lions’ family, which has offered support however possible. ECYFL par-

ents David and Joy Espino, who are dear friends of the Camillis, have stepped up to make life easier for Gale by taking on game-day tasks. ECYFL coaches Jim and Laura Strelo have set up a MealTrain.com account for Gale, so homecooked food can be delivered to her house. Mario plans to retire from his job at AAA to spend more time with Gale, and coaches, parents and other members of ECYF have tried to convince Gale to stay home and rest. “What can we do to help?” Joy said. “That’s what pretty much all of the parents and the moms and even the dads (said) – ‘What can we do to help Gale and Mario?’” So far, things are going well for Gale. Her first round of treatments killed 40 percent of the cancer cells, but a long road lies ahead. Mario and Gale remain hopeful that she’ll make a full recovery and continue to work with ECYF in the hands-on manner she has preferred for the last 20 years. “Once people knew Gale was sick, people just came out of the woodwork,” David said. “She’s so strong and it’s amazing. Peoples’ hearts are just so touched.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Freedom’s Pelayo sets sights sky-high by Michael Dixon Correspondent

Press file photo

Freedom’s Rodolfo Pelayo, right, and Donovan Zaragoza of Heritage battle for the ball during Bay Valley Athletic League soccer action last season.

To watch Freedom High senior midfielder Rodolfo Pelayo play soccer, it’s clear that he’s different from most of his teammates and opponents – the ball has a certain boom coming off of his foot. But there’s more to Pelayo than what’s seen on the soccer field. While working as a busboy at MJ’s Downtown Café and Bakery, Pelayo met a woman who helped get him an internship at the Byron Airport. What began as an odd job became a passion when Pelayo climbed into the cockpit of a jet. That’s when he realized he wanted to study aerospace engineering, either as a pilot (non-military) or engineer. “I was scared coming out for my senior year; all of my friends seemed to know what they wanted to do, and I really didn’t,” Pelayo said. “Getting to go to the internship was really great and helped clear that up.” In order to realize his dream of aerospace engineering, Pelayo must first study at a junior college; then onto a four-year school. Sal Acevedo Jr. is in his first year as Freedom’s coach. When he took the helm, one of the first things he noticed was his team’s

coachability. One of the players in that mold is Pelayo, one of the team’s captains. Despite working a job, Pelayo manages to play soccer at a high level while also maintaining a strong grade point average. But his coach is as impressed with the attitude as the results. “For a kid his age, it’s admirable,” Acevedo said. “He’s smiling when he goes to school, when he comes to play and when he goes to work.” On the field, teammates, coaches and Pelayo himself all believe his best attribute is a constant work ethic and tireless training routine. He takes more pride in that than anything else. And yet, while he wants to play in college, Pelayo knows he needs to improve to get to that level. His skills on the ball need to improve and, according to junior Raul Lopez, “He needs to work on his awareness, knowing where his teammates are. He’s good, but that needs to get better.” While Pelayo has a lot to balance in his life, he manages to keep it in a simple perspective: “After school, I go to work, come home, do my homework, and then go play soccer. A friend of mine found a quote on Google and it really stuck with me: ‘Whenever you’re not practicing, someone better than you is.’” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Liberty girls win Stonebarger tourney by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer Liberty High’s girls basketball team took on opponents from all over the map at the recent Stonebarger Tournament. The Lions started off facing Kimball, from Tracy, then played Pinole Valley in the second game. Liberty’s third opponent – Tenison Woods College – came from southern Australia. The Lions held steady, defeating all three teams en route to a victory in their home tournament. Liberty felled the Kimball Jaguars 43-28 and Pinole Valley Spartans 69-43 before beating Tenison Woods 44-35. “I’m always happy when we win the Stonebarger Tournament because of the Stonebarger family,” Lions head coach Debbi Weil said. “They really have done a lot for the school and the community.” In the final game, the Tenison Woods Titans held close early on, but timely three-point shooting put some distance between the Lions and their opponents. Junior guard Erin Morgan and senior guard Mazhane Rima Fleurima each contributed 10 points in the win over Tenison Woods. Junior guard Sarah Pretty netted 11 points for the Titans. The Liberty boys team also made it to the championship round, but didn’t fare as well as the girls. After defeating Ygnacio Valley handily (6618) and Enochs by a slimmer margin (59-49), the Lions fell 60-42 at the hands of Campolindo. The result was a repeat of last year’s Stonebarger Tournament, when the Cougars defeated Liberty in the consolation round. “We beat ourselves tonight,” head coach Jon Heinz said after the final loss. “The first two games we played very well. The only team that really has an effect on ourselves is ourselves.” Senior guard Dwayne Burns led the Lions with 10 points in the title game. Forward Matt O’Reilly contributed a game-high 12 points for Campolindo. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Cherry’s Tax Facts... By Cherry Comstock

Are you taking advantage of your charitable deductions? What lists? When donating more than $500 worth of stuff to charity, you must provide details. Your list needs to include: what is donated; how many units of it (how many pairs of shoes, for example); what it cost you originally (approximately); and its value when making the donation (also approximately). Look at Form 8283, at the bottom of Part I—you’ll find a grid with the data needed for your tax return. What if you don’t have the original cost or current value? No sweat! You can use the Salvation Army site, which provides “thrift shop values.” This sites has a databases that contains cost information and current, allowable market values. Simply make a list of what you will be donating, print out the resulting reports, and enter the summary data into your Form 8283. Good condition is mandatory In order to claim deductions, the things you donate must be in good condition. It’s the law. How can you prove this? Take photos. Everyone seems to have digital cameras or phones that take photos. Use them. Save the digital photos into a folder with your tax data, or print the pictures and put them in your tax file. No need to send them in to the IRS.

Plan your donations

Some people manage to gather so many

things to donate each year that their non-cash deductions total thousands of dollars. When your total non-cash donations for the year reach $5,000, you need a written appraisal to be able to claim them. How can you possibly get such an appraisal in December, when you’ve been donating all through the year? You can’t. That’s why it’s important to plan out your donations. When you know your things are going to be worth a lot of money, save them up. Get them appraised. And donate only once—at the end of the year.

Sell!

Incidentally, if your stuff is really worth all that much, have you ever thought of selling it? Perhaps you can turn it over to an estate agent or garage sale specialist. You can always donate the proceeds. There’s a lot less paperwork involved. And no, you won’t have to pay taxes on the sale of your stuff. Just report it on Schedule D with the same cost as the sale price. Undoubtedly, you are selling these things for less than you paid for them. Should you have questions about this or any other tax matter feel free to contact our office. www.jettax.org, info@www.jettax.org, or call (925)778-0281. One of our enrolled agents will be happy to assist you.

Local fighters capture titles

eam G-Force Fighters of Guila’s Hawaiian Kickboxing in Antioch recently took home some prestigious title belts at the International Kickboxing Federation West Coast Championships in Sacramento. Katrina Nahe, right, Hugo Rivera and Gary Grant all made East County proud. Sammy Sosa also earned a belt by default after his opponent failed to make weight. Nahe has been recognized by the IKF as The Most Feared Teenage Female Fighter in the World. Though Oakley’s Monica Abesamis didn’t take home a belt, she competed hard during the event in what many felt was the fight of the day.

Edna Hill leading the pack The Edna Hill Middle School Cross Country Team has achieved the distinction of being undefeated this season, finishing with a 5-0 record. The speedy Bobcats overpowered all five other middle schools in the surrounding area (Adams, Bristow, Delta Vista, Excelsior and O’Hara Park). Each school hosted a meet featuring a 1.5-mile course for sixth grade athletes and a 2-mile course for runners in seventh and eightth grades. Although most of the courses encircled the hosting schools, all of the runners seemed to enjoy the beautiful and challenging terrain of Edna Hill’s new competition course at Round Valley Regional Preserve. The following Bobcats ran to victory and finished in the top five at the five meets: Jonathan Arevalo, Luke Becker, Hunter Bentancourt, Giovanny Colchado, Mathew Drake, Timothy Drake, Michael Fuson, Guisell Morales, Samuel Porras, Collin Richardson, Hailey Schneider, Arturo Torres, Miriam Velador, Emily Wylie and Kaitlynn Zdroik. Other student-athletes include Zack Allen, Leticia Barraza, Julian Carrera, Zachary Cohn, Jason Dominguez, Grant Mathias, Deyanira Ortiz, Ashlan Parker and Michael Sudweeks. The overall best times for the Edna Hill Bobcat Cross Country season are Giovanny Colchado – 10:57, 2 miles; Guisell

Morales – 12:45, 2 miles; Samuel Porras – 9:01, 1.5 miles; Arturo Torras –12:43, 2 miles; and Kaitlynn Zdroik – 11:52, 2 miles. Coach Phil Rodriguez was key to the work ethic and success of the Bobcat team. “I was excited to coach the cross country team for Edna Hill once again,” Rodriguez said. “This is a great group of student athletes and I’m glad I had an opportunity to work with them.” The runners benefited from Rodriguez’s training plans that mapped out the focus of their weekly workouts, and the coach encouraged the runners to push themselves and achieve their personal best. “The students are definitely a hard working group,” Rodriguez added. “They’re all dedicated … usually the kids who go out for cross country are very active and make great athletes. I loved coaching all of them, and the sportsmanship of the runners was excellent. They all got along, worked hard and encouraged each other.” In fact, the Bobcat cross country competitors did not leave a meet until all of their teammates crossed the finish line, showing unity, team spirit and support for one another. – Contributed by Kaitlynn Zdroik

EAST COUNTY LIFE

Shadows from page 1B nals, mining barons, silver and copper rushes, logging empires, cattle and wheat kings have risen and fallen. After both scoundrels and heroes are gone, only their names remain, fading and fleeting like the shadows on the hills.” With help from historians Kathy Leighton, Nilda Rego and Mero’s wife, Kathleen, he penned the book hoping it would help newcomers understand the history behind the places they now call home. “We’ve gotten so many new residents in the last five years who know nothing of Contra Costa County,” he said. “This is a good way for people to educate themselves.” Despite the hundreds of entries contained in “Shadows on the Hills,” Mero harbors no illusions that it’s comprehensive, or that everyone will agree with its entries. “Talking about the origin of a place name is like talking religion or politics,” he says. “Everybody has pretty strong opinions. Everyone says, ‘I wish you had talked to me’ or ‘my grandmother has a different story.’ I’m a stickler for accuracy, and I’d be glad to include it in the next edition.” Some of the stories – such as the claim that Byron was related to the distance a horse and wagon could travel in two hours, a “by run” – have little or no basis of fact, but make for good entertainment. Those, says Mero, often lack footnotes and sources, but are included with a “literary smile” for their entertainment value. But most are thoroughly sourced and documented in the book’s expansive index, which includes maps, lists of prominent homes of the 19th century, land grant information and more. The book, now available on eBay, can also be ordered through the CCCHS Web site, www.cocohistory.com. Additional names or alternative stories to those the book contains can be contributed by e-mailing Mero at kmero@astound.net. Below are a few of the book’s entries about places familiar to residents of East County: Antioch Originally “Smith’s Landing,” the first settlers of present-day Antioch were twin brothers J.H. and W.W. Smith. The brothers were first invited to settle on the original site of Antioch by Dr. John Marsh, first U.S.-born pioneer in Contra Costa. In 1851 the current name was selected at the town’s Fourth of July picnic. The town was named after an ancient Syrian city in the Bible. The story is that some wanted to call their new town “Paradise.” But given the growing land disputes, most of the settlers didn’t want to be known as “Paradise Lost.” Antioch enjoyed an early land rush in 1865 when an oildrilling boom swept the area. The city was incorporated in 1872. Brentwood Brentwood is named after Dr. John Marsh’s ranch, “Brentwood,” an English town in Essex, the ancestral home of the Marsh family. (Marsh was the first U.S. –born settler in Contra Costa.) Located on

ON THE COVER: East County’s Vasco Caves is just one of hundreds of place names explained by historian Bill Mero in his new book, “Shadows on the Hills.”

DECEMBER 16, 2011

the Marsh Rancho, also known as Los Meganos, the town was laid out and surveyed in October of 1878 by Lewis and Lord, and incorporated in 1948. Brentwood was a Southern Pacific Railroad stop in 1893. The Balfour Guthrie Company established orchards and gardens that stimulated Brentwood’s early growth. Byron The first houses in Byron were a hotel and post office built in 1878, and a Southern Pacific Railroad depot. The railroad company might have named the depot after one of several other East Coast Byron stations. Byron gained national infamy in 1902 as the site of a horrific railroad crash on the Southern Pacific Line that killed 27 or 28 passengers and helped bring about new national safety standards. The town is two and half miles north of Byron Hot Springs. A favorite story of local historians is that the original name of the railroad stop was “Byrun.” Supposedly the distance between railroad stations was set by the distance a horse and buggy could travel in two and half hours. This distance was called a “by run.” There is no evidence for this interesting tale. An often-quoted explanation is that a railroad official named the railroad station and resulting community after his young son or a railroad employee. One story is that the original railroad depot was named after the poet Lord Byron. There also is a possibility that early pioneer settlers Henry and Rosina Byron gave their name to the area in the 1860. Vasco Caves The caves are within sandstone outcrops about five miles southwest of Byron Hot Springs. There is some evidence they were frequented by Native Americans during the Spanish era. A large cave, the King’s Palace, is located there. It’s claimed that the caves were a hideout of Francisco Cervantes, a Famous Contra Costa bandit of 1866, who was finally captured by Undersheriff George A. Swain and John McGrath. The romantically inclined claimed that the legendary outlaw Joaquin Marietta also used the caves as a hideout. If true, the caves would have been a busy place. Concord Originally “Todos Santos,” “Drunken Indian,” present-day Concord was founded by Salvio Pacheco in 1828. He initially named the new settlement Todos Santos. Salvio Pacheco, Fernando Pacheco and Francisco Galindo laid out Concord’s streets and lots in 1869. Samuel Bacon was the first man to take advantage of a free lot offer if the settlers would move from the flood-prone Pacheco townsite. In the early days there was a local Indian named Juan Vaca famous for begging pennies in order to buy strong drink. His nickname was “Dan Empty.” The local wits thought it was hilarious to refer to the new settlement as “Drunken Indian.” Don Salvio wrote to the Contra Costa Gazette that Concord is the name that “… the sponsors have decided to call the new village that is to form the east extension of Pacheco town.” By 1873 the name “Concord” was the accepted name for the growing village. Deer Valley Deer Valley is a small northwest-southeast-trending valley in the general vicinity of Byron. Deer Creek drains the northern flank see Shadows page 3B

Shadows from page 2B of Mount Diablo. In the early days, the local deer population was abundant. Market hunters harvested game on Mount Diablo for the tables of San Francisco. Discovery Bay Originally “Riverside,” “River Lake,” Discovery Bay is a relatively recent, upscale, unincorporated community whose planning began in 1964. Jorgen Lunding is credited with changing the name to “Discovery Bay” around 1967. The community was built on the Byron Tract, a barley and potato growing area. By 1988 more than 2,000 acres had been developed and 18 bays carved out of the farmland. The artificial bays were then flooded by breaking a levee on Indian Slough. Oakley In 1887, James O’Hara planted the first orchards and transformed the region. The Oakley post office was established in October of 1898. The town was founded in 1897 and named by R.C. Marsh, the first postmaster, for the local abundance of oak trees. The initials of the five original streets – Marsh, Acme, Ruby, Star and Home – spell out his last name. The town was a free-spirited locality during the early decades of the 20th century. Few women inhabited eastern Contra Costa in those early times. In the Oakley Hotel’s upstairs rooms, numerous prostitutes entertained the large number of single men who worked on the surrounding farms and ranches. Many stores on Ruby Street served as fronts for gambling establishments. It’s claimed that Chinese farm hands frequented MEDA L LD AWARD

opium dens in houses behind the old Oakley Hotel. Orwood Orwood was an Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad stop about a half mile west of Old River and the Contra Costa San Joaquin County line. The post office was established around December, 1913 and lasted until November, 1921. Orwood was named after Orville Y. Woodward, promoter of the Orwood Tract. Point of Timber Landing The landing was located on Indian Slough across from Discovery Bay. The original landing was about 2½ miles east of today’s Union Cemetery. The landing was used after the early 1860s. Tule fires burned the landing in 1881-82. The landing was rebuilt in 1884. Jack London anchored his yacht “The Sea Wolf” at Point of Timber Landing. While at Point of Timbers, London worked on “The Seafaring Life of a Captain” with Captain C. W Lent, a sailing ship captain who had retired to Byron. An alcoholic, London suffered from a flare-up of kidney problems, preventing the book’s completion. Lent became an important figure in the history of Delta reclamation by operating the first floating pump, using Point of Timber as his main base. From Point of Timber Landing, Lent also ran a regular passenger boat to Stockton. The Wolf and Kahn store and the Lehman & Davis blacksmith shop were located there. The landing was built by Josiah Wills, who organized the digging of Indian Slough. The slough connected the landing to the open water of Old River. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.
