Fundraisers for firefighter by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

If you wonder what’s cooking in the effort to help ailing firefighter Willie West, organizers hope you will be. A spaghetti feed, scheduled for March 24 at Veterans Hall, 757 First St. in Brentwood, will benefit West, an East Contra Costa County Fire Protection District firefighter battling prostate cancer since November. The event runs from noon to 2 p.m. and 4 to 10 p.m., so the need for plenty of pasta sauce is great. Julie Nickels-Schau, also known as Mama J within the Warriors’ Watch Riders, is assembling a team of locals to cook up batches of spaghetti sauce for the event, and volunteers are still needed. Dining supplies such as plates, flatware and napkins are also needed. To volunteer to help with the dinner, e-mail Mama J at julnic1105@yahoo.com. The event also features live music and raffles, a jump house and face painting for the kids, and a silent auction of sports memorabilia. Tickets ($20) are now on sale at the ECCFPD office, 134 Oak St. in Brentwood. Tickets include one meal, one beverage and a raffle ticket. For more information, call Patricia Hubbard at 925-2402136. Those looking to support West can also participate in ECCFPD Director Bob Kenny’s fundraiser raffle, scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 29 at the San Joaquin Yacht Club, 550 Riverview Place in Bethel Island. Kenny, known for masquerading as Santa Claus during the holidays, has pledged to shave his Santa beard for charity. The grand prizewinner gets to decide where, when and who will shave Kenny’s beard. Tickets are $5. For more information, call Kenny at 925-684-9283. In a recent interview with the Press, ECCFPD Fire Chief Hugh Henderson said West, who has been with the district since 2002, has the support of his extended family in the firefighting community.

East Contra Costa Fire Protection District firefighter Willie West is battling prostate cancer. The community is coming out to support him at two local fundraisers. “Firefighters are a family, and when a member of your family is ill, you want to do whatever you can to offer support. The guys are always checking in with him trying to keep his spirits up. They go over to visit and call him. He’s a great person and a great employee. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.” Family friend Clyde Allen said West, an Antioch resident who works at the Knightsen station, maintains a positive attitude during his battle with cancer and is showing improvement following three rounds of chemotherapy.

Are you unable to work? You may be entitled to Social Security Benefits by Joan Grimes, Esq. Social Security Disability Insurance (“SSDI”) is an insurance program paid for by you through payroll withholding and employer contributions called a “FICA” tax. SSDI covers most American workers. SSDI pays cash and health care benefits to qualifying disabled workers. The SSDI program pays monthly cash benefits to disabled workers who are generally under the age of 65 and Medicare benefits beginning 24 months after entitlement to the first monthly check. Cash benefits can also be received by dependents. Workers generally have to have been disabled for at least 12 continuous months. The amount of cash benefits depends on each specific situation and past earnings. Retroactive benefits can be obtained for up to 12 months. In order to determine the amount of a potential benefits, you should look at your annual Social Security earnings record. It is normally mailed out in June of each year. If you cannot find your annual record, you can order a copy from Social Security either online at www.ssa.gov or by calling them at 800-772-1213. The Social Security Administration takes an average of 3 months to make an initial decision on a claim. It approves approximately 35 percent of the claims initially and denies approximately 65 percent. If your initial claim is denied, it may take you two years or more to get your SSDI benefits which you were entitled to from the beginning. In order to prevent costly delays, your claim can be filed by an attorney. If you hire an attorney, their fee is usually 25% of the past due SSDI benefits or $6,000, whichever is less. While it possible to obtain SSDI benefits without

an attorney, it can be very difficult because of the complicated requirements for proof of disability. Many people are confused and think that their doctor can “prescribe” disability benefits. Although the medical report and recommendation of the doctor are important, they are only evidence and do not decide the claim. The Social Security Administration bases its decision on all of the evidence, not just your doctor’s report. It is very important not to sit on your rights to benefits. You continue to be covered by SSDI for some time after you stop working. However, the eligibility time varies from person to person according to individual work history. Furthermore, you can only recover a maximum of 12 months of retroactive benefits measured from the date of your application. Therefore, it is critical that you file your claim as soon as you are eligible. If you think you have a right to SSDI benefits and want an attorney to help you, I do a FREE 30 minute consultation at my offices in Walnut Creek and Brentwood. My phone number is (925) 323-7772.

Each of the five senses receives input that can help soothe, stimulate or generally improve wellness in the multi-sensory rooms at Antioch’s Special Haven.

Providing Special Haven by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer For those with special needs, the world can be a loud, cold and traumatic place. But a new organization in town is dedicated to easing the stress, and doing it in a special way. Special Haven provides resources to the special-needs community in East County by providing multi-sensory rooms filled with equipment designed to touch each of the five senses by soft, safe and significant means. “Anyone with special needs, whether they are young children or adults, will benefit,” said Scott Lawler, a Special Haven board member. “It stimulates adults with Alzheimer’s, and infants too.” Multi-sensory rooms are popular and proven tools abroad, used for treating peo-

ple with autism, brain injuries, developmental disabilities and even dementia. Though Lawler said the therapy has been slow to gain widespread use in the United States, it’s time has come. Another local organization – The Special Kids Foundation – thinks so too, and recently donated $7,000 to the group for the purchase of its first piece of sensory equipment. “Special Haven is on a quest and we want to help them,” said Special Kids President and Co-founder Lisa McBride. “Because part of our own mission is to do something like this when we get our own facility, we figured: let’s help them build theirs, too. It’s an amazing project that fulfills our mission as well as theirs.” see Haven page 7

MORTGAGE SETTLEMENT Boy, did my phone ring off the hook last week with people wanting to know about the mortgage settlement and what it could mean for their situation. I have two basic responses. 1. It’s too early to tell because the details haven’t been worked out. 2. The settlement is too small to make much difference for most people. In regards to the details, it’s going to be a while until we know exactly how the $25 billion will be spent, and who qualifies. For information, you can go to www. NationalMortgageSettlement.com but even that website admits that borrowers will not immediately know whether they are eligible. Within the next 30-60 days, an administrator will be chosen to oversee the settlement. Eligible homeowners will be identified over the next six to nine months, and will be notified by mail. They have three years to disburse the funds. There are three areas where they will try to help: 1. More and better loan mods, including some principal reductions. 2. Ability to refinance at current inter-

est rates for those who are current but upside-down. 3. Cash payments for those who lost their home to foreclosure, but this may only be $1,000 to $3,000 each. The settlement may only apply to loans that are still held by BofA, Citibank, Chase, Wells Fargo, and Ally/GMAC. This means if they sold the loan off to an investor, the settlement may not apply because they are only“servicing” the loan. Loans owned by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are also not included. This leaves a LOT of loans out of the mix. With some accounting“magic” and for taking losses on loans they were already going to take a loss on, I’m afraid that the $25 billion will evaporate rapidly without making much of a difference for the majority of borrowers. 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 ofhomes for sale, go to: www.SharpHomesOnline.com.

Haven from page 6 For Special Haven, the donation from Special Kids is a wonderful gift. “Yes, we are happy,” said Lawler. “So happy to have the help from Special Kids and to be able to get something started. We are so appreciative.” According to the group’s website, the multi-sensory room – to be housed at the Intuitive Healing Center in Antioch – will “provide a tactile experience through sound, aroma, touch and visual effects in many combinations and variations … The overactive will be calmed, the inactive become interested. The partially sighted can see the vivid, moving colors. The whole room can change color by applying pressure to simple

switches or pressure pads.” Lawler said Special Haven is still in the process of researching and purchasing the equipment: a portable unit to be set up in the multi-sensory room. “We’re still looking at units but we hope to have one within the month,” said Lawler. “We’ve been busy getting things organized, fundraising – doing all the things you do when you’re starting up. But we’re excited and ready to go.” Special Haven is located at 213 G St. in Antioch.

New rules for kindergarten by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

By Paul Kelly “The Loan Guy”

BUYING A FIXER-UPPER Some homes out there aren’t selling because there’s way too much work that must be done. If you can’t pay cash (most cannot) but would still like to buy it… and fix it, the solution is to use a Renovation Loan. These loans let Homebuyers buy a FIXER-UPPER home, get extra money for improvements, and do it all in one closing. Kitchens, baths, floors, paints, roofs, carpets, AC, upgrades, and more. 3.5% Down... Wow! One home, One Loan… One Happy Family. Now That’s Logical! To learn more about this loan and others, visit my website and email me a request for info or call me… I’d love to chat. P. Kelly

The addition of transitional kindergarten to local curriculums means that parents planning to enroll their children in kindergarten for the 2012-13 school year have new guidelines to follow. Transitional kindergarten, the first new grade level added to the California curriculum since kindergarten debuted in 1891, is the first phase of a new two-year kindergarten program established in 2010 as part of the Kindergarten Readiness Act. While some of the state’s school districts have already implemented the program, 2012-13 marks the first school year it will be mandatory in all districts. “Transitional kindergarten will offer 4year-olds a bridge to standard kindergarten,” said Fran Courter, Antioch Unified School District coordinator of educational services. “This program gives students the gift of time to build a strong foundation for success before they enter elementary school.” Under the old rule, students born by Dec. 2 were eligible to attend kindergarten, but the Kindergarten Readiness Act has bumped the cutoff date to Sept. 1. Children who turn 5 on or before Nov. 1, 2012 are eligible to attend traditional kindergarten. Children who turn 5 on Sept. 1 through Nov. 1 have the option of being enrolled in transitional kindergarten or traditional kindergarten, but children who turn 5 between Nov. 2 and Dec. 2 must attend

transitional kindergarten beginning in the 2012-13 school year or wait a year to enroll in traditional kindergarten for the 2013-14 school year. Under the new system, all kindergarteners entering the classroom will be 5 and thus on a similar developmental path physically, socially, emotionally and academically. Similarly, students entering transitional kindergarten will be 4 and thus benefit from a developmentally appropriate curriculum that will help them be better prepared for kindergarten. At a recent transitional kindergarten summit, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson said transitional kindergarten will become a “bright spot” in the California education system, creating a wave of success for future generations. Deborah Kong, communications director at Preschool California, a statewide nonprofit organization working to increase high-quality early learning opportunities, also supports the program. “Transitional kindergarten is critical because kindergarten in California has changed over the years, and many of the skills children were once taught in first grade are now taught in kindergarten,” Kong said in a recent press release. “Transitional kindergarten is the right program at the right time.” Gov. Jerry Brown, however, recently proposed that funding for the transitional kindergarten program be cut from the state’s 2012-13 budget, a proposal that leaves some districts in limbo.

“It’s frustrating,” said Oakley Union Elementary School District Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services Anne Allen. “We don’t know if the funding will be cut or not until the state government works out the budget, which won’t be until late June. Our classes start Aug. 1, so we don’t have time to wait and see what happens. So we’ve decided to move forward with the program regardless of the budget decision.” The Oakley district is in a good position because it launched a pre-kindergarten program 10 years ago at Laurel Elementary School. Most of the program’s infrastructure is already in place. Brown’s proposal to cut the funding and postpone transitional kindergarten would displace approximately 125,000 students from kindergarten, as they would no longer be age-eligible under the new standards. Allen said that to ensure students with November and December birthdays don’t get left behind, those students would be given priority into the pre-kindergarten program. State Sen. Joseph Simitian, who authored the Kindergarten Readiness Act, plans to create legislation that will allow schools to collect Average Daily Attendance funding for the students enrolled in a transitional kindergarten program even if state funding is cut.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters Winter Tire Pressure

MEDA L LD AWARD

MEDA L LD AWARD

GO

2010 2011

GO

By Trevor Frey

According to Motor Trend magazine you lose about 1 pound per square inch, or 1psi, in tire pressure for every 10 degree drop in out-side 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 con-stricting, it’s the guidelines set forth by Fannie Mae for any would-be home buyers. From December 13th (of 2011) forward new guide-lines were put in place that will positively, or negatively, affect one’s ability to purchase a home. First, the good news… Gift funds are now allowed for all conventional loans. Many first-time buyers can mange their projected monthly payment, but are not able to accumulate enough money for a down-payment. FHA would permit the down-payment to come from ‘gift funds,’ but Fannie Mae wouldn’t. Now, those same buyers will look to conventional financ-ing as a very viable option since the funds for their down payment can 100% be a gift for conventional financing as well. “Great!” you say, but don’t get too excited….On to the bad news… The permissible debt-to-income ratio, or DTI – a percentage found by dividing a would-be buyer’s monthly debts by their monthly gross income – is being reduced from 55% to 45%. This 10% de-crease is coupled with the fact that the debts being counted against a would-be buyer’s debt-toincome ratio are increasing. Before the change any debt that had fewer than 10 payments remaining – a car loan with a $2,000 balance

FEBRUARY 17, 2012

EDUCATION

and $500 payment – would not be in-cluded 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. And the hits just keep on coming… Fannie Mae also changed the waiting periods for obtaining a new conventional loan following either a foreclosure or a short sale. Beginning December 13th (again, of 2011), a buyer will have to wait seven years (instead of the current four years) to obtain a new loan following a foreclosure, but only two years following a short sale. These changes may make a difference to any current homeowner who is facing a choice between allowing their home to go into foreclosure and selling their home through a short sale. Before attempting to steer through the real estate world this win-ter 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. And for the safety of yourself and your family, you really should adjust your tire pressure at the beginning of spring and the beginning of winter each year, even if you never get a home loan through me! As always, I welcome all questions and or concerns pertaining to real estate lending on my cell phone, 925-726-1444, or via email, tfreymortgages@yahoo.com. – Advertisement

Police compensation too high Editor: I’m writing this in response to Staff Writer Justin Lafferty’s recent reporting on Antioch Police Crime Prevention Commissioner Bill Cook’s proposed parcel tax increase to help the city hire more police officers (30) community service officers (20) and code enforcement officers (number not specified). Councilman Gary Agopian commented that property values have been tumbling in recent years along with property values and that he believes Antioch residents would be open to a marginal increase in property taxes to aid the city’s overworked police staff. Agopian further stated that property values have gone down and it’s a good idea to reinvest part of that. Cook also was quoted as saying we have to do something and this is a start … to ensure our kids have a safe place to go to school … and to attract business to come here to Antioch. I’ll start by exclaiming, “Balderdash!” at the myopic and self-serving viewpoints expressed above by employed officials of Antioch. First off, why is the Antioch Police Department short on manpower? It is because police officer association members have chosen not to take a cut in pay and pension benefits; rather, letting vacant positions remain unfilled while police safeguard their obscene compensation packages. Their compensation packages are obscene by any normal time’s standards, virtually bankrupting every jurisdiction in the state; however, by hard time’s standards, they are more of a punch to the gut of homeowners struggling to keep their heads above water. Police officers will be quick to point out that they have “postponed” pay raises due to them over the past couple of years. Not sacrificing them to begin to accrue a pot for hiring new officers, just postponing them until they retire, at which time their 90-percent to 100percent and even higher pensions will kick in, inflated by those same postponed pay raises, the sale of unused sick leave and vacation, overtime, temporary “acting” promotions and the like. This is not a time of pain shared across

the board. The employed continue to live, fat and happy, while the unlucky who have lost their jobs, along with homes, belongings, sometimes marriages and even self respect, grovel for crumbs beneath the banquet tables of the public employees living high on tax largess. Remember, less princely pay and pensions equals more police officers. If Antioch were being run like a business, city management would have delivered an ultimatum to the police officers association to take a voluntary pay cut and reduction in retirement formulation, or we will lay-off X number of you and hire those willing to share the pain of the taxpayers under whose discretion you serve. How dare Antioch’s governing members suggest higher taxation at a time when there has been absolutely zero improvement in property values and employment! Mr. Agopian, sir, my PERS pension has gone down due to a lower cost of living. What a laugh! With the exception of my ad valorem taxes dropping, none of my costs went down. They went up. Food is up. Gas is up. Medical costs are up. Appeals for my financial assistance are up. Mello-Roos taxes are still hanging around my neck like a millstone. Unless Antioch administrators stop “inhaling” and wake up to the hell that is upon us like a plague, they all may well go the way of former mayor Freitas, banished to the land of turned-out-of-office-officialdom. When sane public governance returns to this nation, the economy will hopefully recover to support all that we would like to have for our community. At least that’s the way I see it from my overtaxed abode. James C. Morris, Sr. Antioch

New countywide fire service needed Editor: It is a good bet that the proposed ECCFPD supplemental tax will fail. It is too open-ended, it does not provide fundamental solutions, it pits community against community, it does not take in leveraging opportunities … and the 66-percent requirement for passage is just too high for an expensive supplemental tax this nebulous and controversial. It is my opinion that right now this plan for a new tax needs to be pulled (before it fails at the ballot box) and the ECCFPD needs to go back to the Board of Supervisors (BoS). Although it has done a terrible job of dealing with the two county fire departments, unfortunately only the BoS can deal with the situation in the manner and time frame necessary to effect the kind of real change needed to position the county’s fire/EMS service for success into the future. The BoS needs to step back in and devise a bold solution. That solution is a brand new fire/EMS department. Key point: I do not think a merger of Con Fire and ECCFPD is the solution. The solution must be a new fire/EMS entity that pulls from the predicate districts but uses a new reality approach to organization, configura-

tion, compensation, financing and taxation. This will not be simple or pain free, but the pain associated with the status quo and a failed tax measure will be worse. This is a slightly refined/expanded suggestion that was made to the new fire board two years ago: A) Construct a brand new fire/EMS department, completely getting rid of Con Fire and the ECCFPD. B) Disband the county’s internal EMS department (put the savings on the street). C) Put EMS under the new fire department and start/develop an association with a regional EMS agency (there are already five of these in the state). D) Implement a P-District/Zone like fire/EMS operation tax for all new housing developments under county control. Seek an agreement from the cities to do the same. E) Configure fire crews, EMS and response times strategically, tactically and individually for each unique area. The same crew size/configuration for every area should not be an expectation. F) Put on a future ballot an incremental tax plan (if necessary) that is calculated after the implementation of A through E. Key Point: In part A of the suggested plan, the basic premise would have to be that Con Fire’s current pay/benefit plan would not be the overlay for the new fire department. A tiered pay/benefit plan would have to be developed based on current times, reality and a realistic outlook that can be paid for without racking up huge debt or recreating the pattern of ongoing financial trouble the two current fire departments have exhibited. A new, well-structured, fully leveraged fire/EMS department would bring long-term stability to the employees and be a tangible/ smart solution that residents countywide would rally around and feel better about investing additional tax resources (if necessary) into. But to get to that point, the BoS needs to step up now. If it doesn’t, it will have to shoulder a big part of the blame when the tax measure fails. Jeff Barber Discovery Bay

A finale to RAVE about Editor: On Saturday, Feb. 5, Joey Nardone, manager of the local RAVE cinemas, once again went out of his way to make special memories for some local families. As he has done the last two years, Joey and his staff came in early on a Saturday to let the Delta Patriots North JV football team and their friends and family watch their end-of-the-year celebration film in style. It was a special morning that the kids will probably never forget. Joey, Travis, Heather and their staff were great and we really appreciate them and their extra efforts to let us finish out our 2011 football season in style!

This year’s successful Liberty Idol competition raised over $1,600 for the Bay Cruisers Wheelchair Basketball team as a result of the support of local businesses and attendance of the community. First, we would like to thank Brentwood Florists & Gifts for their generous donation of flowers for the emcees, winner and technical crew. In the past three years, Brentwood Florists & Gifts have generously supported all Liberty events, from Homecoming to Mr. Liberty. We are very grateful for their generosity and hope the community will support this local treasure. Diggers Diner has been a continual source of support for Liberty Leadership. They have annually hosted the breakfasts for the Homecoming Court, as well as Mr. Liberty and Liberty Idol contestants. Students look forward to their Diggers Breakfast almost as much as the event itself. The staff of Diggers is supportive, kind and provides a positive experience for all. This donation went above and beyond the expectation and is very much appreciated. We would also like to thank Prestige Press for their donation toward this year’s tickets, programs and flyers. The staff at Prestige worked closely with the students to prepare and deliver an outstanding product in a very quick manner. Prestige has supported Liberty High School for years and we hope to work with them again in the near future. Additionally, I would like to thank the following individuals for their work on the Liberty Idol competition: Frank Pappas and the Liberty Film Alliance, who created and edited this year’s “Reject Video”; Curtis Cunningham, Curtis Hutslar, Carli Lamb and Wendy Thigpen, who served as judges; our Technical Crew – Mo DuPee, Taylor Miller, Taylor Kesterson, Mikey Santos, Zach Friedmann, Clay Krum, Brooke Damico, Emma Holmes, Hanna Johnson and Gabby Montagnino; the night’s organizers, Tyler Elmore and Vanessa Munoz; and Liberty administrators Pat Walsh, Sara Branstetter, Ilene Foster, Sandra Guardado and Matt LaFleur. This year was the 10th annual Liberty Idol competition, and we hope that all who attended had a great time. The traditions at Liberty High run deep and are part of what make living in Brentwood a great experience. Go, Lions! Summer Rodriguez Director of Student Activities Liberty High School

It’s ‘Curtains’ for Liberty Playmakers The curtain goes up in February and March for the Liberty High School Playmakers’ production of “Curtains,” an offbeat murder mystery with lots of laughs. “Curtains” opened on Broadway in 2007 and ran for more that 500 performances, earning eight Tony nominations. Set in 1959, the show begins with the final scene of the show-within-the-show, “Robbin’ Hood of the Old West,” in which an obnoxious and untalented star actor is murdered. The cast and crew is at a loss for how to save their show (and lives), but Detective Cioffi of the Greater Boston Police

saves the day – and finds love in the process. Performances are scheduled for Feb. 24, 25 and March 2, 3, 8 and 9 at 7 p.m.; March 10 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12.50 for the general public and $9.50 for senior citizens, youth and college students (with ID). Tickets for the Thursday, March 8 performance are $7.50. Online ticket sales begin Friday, Feb. 17 at www.libertyunion. schoolwires.net/liberty/playmakers. For more information, e-mail lhsplaymakers@hotmail.com or call 925-634-3521, ext. 5489 Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Niki (Kaitlyn Nesbitt), Georgia (Brooke Damico) and Bambi (Danielle Reyes) are suspects in the madcap murder mystery musical “Curtains.” The production runs from Feb. 24 to March 10. Photo courtesy of Helen Dixon

ECYF to hold sign-ups

Liberty’s JT Sarmento, center, shares a moment with Lions head coach Kurt Roessler, left, and Pacific head coach James Graham.

East County Youth Football and Cheer organizations are looking for new members. Earlybird sign-ups have begun for the 2012 season, which starts Aug. 1. Walk-in sign-ups will be held Feb. 26, March 25, April 22, May 20, June 24, July 8 and July 22 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Aladino’s Pizza, 2587 Main St. in Oakley. The deadline to sign up for the

From Lion to Tiger by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

When Liberty water polo player JT Sarmento took aim on his college of choice, he decided to stay local. A two-time Bay Valley Athletic League MVP, Sarmento recently signed his letter of intent to attend the University of the Pacific in Stockton. He appreciated the school’s small-community feel and wanted to stay close to home. Sarmento also considered Long Beach State, UC Davis and UC San Diego. The Pacific Tigers also boast a talented water polo squad that competes against USC, Cal, Stanford and UCLA in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation. The team finished the 2011 season ranked sixth in the nation. “I look forward to being a part of a real good water polo program,” Sarmento said. “When I went there, it was a real close group and I look forward to being part of the family they have there.” This past season, Sarmento shared MVP honors with Heritage’s Ty Elder. Sarmento scored 88 goals for the Lions in his

senior season, tacking on 82 steals and 39 assists. He was also named Liberty’s captain and maintained academic honors throughout his time on campus. In addition to water polo, Sarmento made a splash for the Lions’ swimming team as a member of the varsity squad all four years. He drew interest for his swimming prowess, but water polo is his main sport. “It was a great four years,” Sarmento said. “I give a lot of credit to my high school coach (Kurt Roessler). He’s been a good mentor and he’s helped me stay motivated throughout the whole four years.” Pacific head coach James Graham was excited to add a player of Sarmento’s caliber to his recruiting class. Graham feels that Sarmento’s physical and mental attributes will facilitate a natural transition from high school to Division I. “We’re expecting him to come in and train to be a defender for us,” Graham said. “With his size and speed, we think he’ll be an excellent fit. Obviously he’s a local guy and we always like to bring in players from the area. … He’s got all the right attributes to make the leap to Division I.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Delta Pats grab gold

In their final competition of the year, the Delta Patriots cheer squad brought the national title back to Brentwood, winning the Performance Cheer Level 3 Division at the Jamz National Championships in Las Vegas. “I’m so proud of the girls,” said Cheer Director Brenda Rogers. “The girls went through so many changes in the last two weeks before we left for Vegas, and their commitment to the sport has paid off.” The Patriots cheer squad, 17 strong, showcased stunt ability, motion

techniques, jumps and high-altitude basket tosses. The squad’s perfectly executed routine outshone the efforts of seven other division finalists to clinch the big trophy. “We were screaming and crying and we couldn’t believe we won,” said Cheer Manager Tanya Wilson. “We all looked at each other in amazement and just screamed.” For more details about the Delta Patriots Cheer Program, visit www. deltapatriots.com. – Contributed by Corinne Wagner

Cherry’s Tax Facts... By Cherry Comstock

Didn’t Get Your W-2? What to do ... 1. Contact your employer. If you have not received your W-2, contact your employer to inquire if and when the W-2 was mailed. If it was mailed, it may have been returned to the employer because of an incorrect or incomplete address. After contacting the employer, allow a reasonable amount of time for them to resend or issue the W-2. 2. Contact the IRS. If you do not receive your W2 by Feb. 14, contact the IRS for assistance at 800829-1040. When you call, you must provide your name, address, Social Security number, phone number and have the following information: • Employer’s name, address and phone number • Dates of employment • An estimate of the wages you earned, the federal income tax withheld, and when you worked for that employer during 2011. The estimate should be based on year-to-date information from your final pay stub or leave-and-earnings statement, if possible. 3. File your return. You still must file your tax return or request an extension to file by April 17, 2012, even if you do not receive your Form W-2. If you have not received your Form W-2 in time to file your return by the due date, and have completed steps 1 and 2, you may use Form 4852, Substitute for Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. Attach Form 4852 to the return, estimating income and withholding taxes as accurately as possible. There may be a delay in any

refund due while the information is verified. 4. File a Form 1040X. On occasion, you may receive your missing W-2 after you file your return using Form 4852, and the information may be different from what you reported on your return. If this happens, you must amend your return by filing a Form 1040X, Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return. Should you have questions about this or any other tax matter feel free to contact our office. Call (925)778-0281. E-mail us at info@www.jettax.org, or visit our website at www.jettax.org. One of our enrolled agents will be happy to assist you. What is an EA? The term stands for Enrolled Agent – Enrolled means authorized to practice before IRS and Agent means they represent you before the IRS. To say this differently an Enrolled Agent is someone who has passed extensive tax law Testing administrated by US Department of Treasury, they are experts in tax law and since they are licensed by Federal Government they can represent you before the IRS About Jet Tax: Jet Tax employs enrolled agents (“EAs”), tax specialists licensed by the US Department of the Treasury.

COMMUNITY

Brentwood banner spots n response to a call for more places where community-event banners can be displayed, the Brentwood City Council Tuesday doubled the allowable locations to four. The new spots are at the corner of Chestnut Drive and Sellers Avenue, and the corner of Dainty and Central avenues. Banners may also still be placed at the intersection of Sand Creek Road and O’Hara Avenue, and at Sand Creek and Fairview Avenue, seen here. To obtain a permit for any of the locations, call 925-516-5405.

U.S. Army Private Second Class Brendan Walker, a 2011 graduate of Heritage High School, is starting the second phase of his AIT training for EOD (explosive ordnance disposal) at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. Brendan completed his basic training at Ft. Leonard Wood in Missouri and the first part of his AIT training at Ft. Lee in Virginia. His parents are Greg and Jeryl Walker and his sisters are Kiersten and Kaleigh Walker. His family and friends are very proud of him.

Scoutmaster saluted Boy Scout Troop 90 of Brentwood recently celebrated Scoutmaster Chris Friedmann’s acceptance of the Silver Beaver award, the highest honor a Boy Scout Council can bestow on a Scouter. Friedman, seen here with wife Cindy, was honored at the Mt. Diablo Silverado Council Recognition Dinner in Concord. The award recognizes adult leaders who make an impact on the lives of youth, implement the Scouting program and perform community service through hard work, self sacrifice, dedication and many years of service.

Town hall from page 3 City Councilman Gary Agopian said it would be beneficial for all parties to look into the possibility of a monthly town hall meeting in which residents could air their concerns. Antioch Police Chief Allan Cantando hopes the meeting will be constructive and not devolve into a gripe session about crime. He understands that both sides are tired of

the status quo. “I believe that the citizens of Antioch are concerned and want change,” he said. Cantando on Tuesday gave a presentation to the council about his department’s performance in 2011. He reported that violent crime dipped 5.3 percent, but property crime rose 25.1 percent. Currently, Antioch can afford only 92 officers; the department is authorized for 126. The police department

even better received had California not nixed redevelopment agencies (RDAs), which collected property tax. Before that decision was made (as a way to help balance the state budget), Brentwood planned to make between $25 million and $40 million worth of improvements to Brentwood Boulevard. Pam Ehler, the city’s finance director, said in January that officials are still brainstorming ways to renovate the street. Frazier has previously remarked that that since Oakley has money in reserve and revenues will grow once the Oakley Generat-

ing Station power plant becomes operational in three or four years, the decision to kill RDAs shouldn’t hurt Oakley much. Several officials applauded all parties involved in the Highway 4 transfer for working together to improve the local quality of life. “We’re seeing great progress in the last few years, and it’s just been phenomenal what’s happened,” said Congressman Jerry McNerney. “We’re going to continue to see this because there’s a lot of great people involved. This kind of infrastructure project is exactly what we need to improve the economy.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

is taking applications to hire two officers to replace cops who recently departed. Members of the community activism group Take Back Antioch have been clamoring for a response from city officials ever since the birthday party incident. The group’s founder, Brittney Gougeon, was excited that the council showed initiative in scheduling a town hall meeting, but felt that delaying it until March could hurt the effort.

Gougeon is working with the city to find some way to hold the meeting on Tuesday. “If they do continue to delay it, it could be more harmful than good at this point,” she said. “Our response from the community has been substantial. I feel that it would again be detrimental to let down the citizens of Antioch in this manner by saying it’s an emergency, but we can wait six weeks.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.
