“Get well In Exactly Seven Minutes Per Session…” Since 1895, people have turned to us when all else has failed them… It doesn’t take long. That’s right, in a series of seven-minute sessions, your health could improve dramatically. Often, people come to my office have “tried everything” and got no where. Often, they’ve been subjected to medications that have only served to temporarily mask symptoms. That’s not what most people are looking for. Health, or the lack of it, very often has simple causes, and very reasonable corrections. That’s what I’m going to tell you about. But, before I tell you more, let me tell you something about me… I remember it like it was yesterday. I’m the “athletic type” and like most young guys, I think that nothing can go wrong. That’s when I’m hit with a dose of reality. I’m playing basketball when it happens. As I’m going for a rebound, I get pushed. I land hard on my lower back and feel a ‘pop’. But, there’s more… I’m in so much pain that I can barely move. I go to see my medical doctor, but all he can do is give me drugs for the pain. But, that doesn’t help. Three weeks later I’m still in pain. I’m frustrated and scared that I may never play sports again. Now, listen to this… A friend of mine convinces me to give his doctor a try. This new doctor does an exam, takes some films, and then ‘adjusts’ my spine. The adjustment doesn’t hurt, it actually feels good. I get relief, and within a week, I feel much better! Oh, did I mention that this doctor is a chiropractor? Chiropractic works so well for me, and I’m so impressed with the other ‘miracles’ I see in his office, that I eventually go to chiropractic school myself. And that’s how it happened! For the last eleven years, people from Brentwood and the surrounding areas have come to see me with their back problems. They also come to me with their: • Headaches • Migraines • Chronic Pain • Neck Pain • Shoulder/Arm Pain • Whiplash from car accidents • Backaches • Numbness in limbs • Athletic Injuries Just to name a few… Special Offer-Look, I know you’re smart. You want to get to the cause of your problem, and not just cover it up with drugs. When you are one of the first 20 people to call and schedule a new patient exam (by April 15, 2011) you’ll receive that entire exam for $37. That’s with x-rays, paraspinal thermal imaging….the whole ball of wax, and there’s no hidden fees. But, call right away because we expect to be flooded with calls as this exam normally costs $249. Again, there’s only 20 of these slots, so don’t miss out (by

law, this offer excludes Medicare or Medicaid beneficiaries). Great care at a great fee… Please, I hope that there’s no misunderstanding about quality of care just because I have a lower exam fee. You’ll get great care at a great fee. My qualifications… I’m a graduate of Western States Chiropractic. I’ve been taking care of seniors to day old babies in Brentwood since 1998. I just have this special offer to help more people who need care. My assistants are Morgan, Esmeralda and Janin and they are really great people. Our office is both friendly and warm and we try our best to make you feel at home. We have a wonderful service, at an exceptional fee. Our office is called JARDIN FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC and it’s at 7351 Brentwood Blvd. Ste A (we are next to the Dollar Tree). Our phone number is

My typical new patient goes through these stages: 1.

Frustration with the results they’ve gotten before.

2.

Questions about how I could possibly help.

3.

Listening and understanding.

4.

Getting that “ah ha” moment… when it all makes sense.

5.

Taking a logical leap of faith.

6.

Being surprised by how gentle and effective chiropractic adjustments are.

7.

Being impressed with their results.

8.

Wonder why they waited so long.

9.

Amazed that my fees are so reasonable.

10. Telling their family to come see me. 11. Making important lifestyle changes that improve their health. 12. Seeing me for wellness care after their complaints are resolved. 925-516-5813. Call Morgan, Esmeralda, Janin or me today for an appointment. We can help you. Thank you and God Bless. Dan Jardin, D.C. P.S. When accompanied by the first, I am also offering the second family member this same examination for only $17. P.P.S. Can you imagine not having to wait at a doctor’s office? Well, your time is as valuable as mine. That’s why we have a no-wait policy. You will be seen within minutes of your appointment. P.P.S. All people respond differently to care. We never promise a cure, but we do promise to do our best.

Rave to give patrons an IMAX eyeful by Samie Hartley Staff Writer It stands eight stories tall and will be coming to Brentwood in a matter weeks, but there’s no need to be alarmed. It’s not Godzilla … although Godzilla would look pretty cool in IMAX. Brentwood’s Rave Motion Pictures theater has been a popular destination since it opened in 2008, but soon, people from all over East County will be flocking to The Streets of Brentwood for a chance to experience Contra Costa County’s first IMAX theater. Renovations are currently underway as Rave’s largest auditorium is being transformed into an IMAX auditorium, which features state-of-the-art technology, a revamped audio system and a customized curved screen that enhances the movie experience. The Brentwood IMAX theater will feature approximately 380 seats. IMAX ticket prices will average $13 while IMAX 3D tickets will average $18. Rave Motion Pictures Vice President of Marketing Jeremy Devine said the addition of the IMAX screen will give moviegoers the best movie experience technology can provide. “The technology offers a clearer picture with sharper sound, and with the curved screen, the theater geometry allows for the screen to go from floor to ceiling and wall to wall. Plus the screen is moved closer to the audience so that they

are completely immersed in the movie. IMAX is unique and there’s nothing like in it East County. We’re really excited.” Movie lovers are excited, too, anxiously anticipating the IMAX auditorium’s opening on April 29. Self-proclaimed movie nerd Quinnten LeDrew is looking

forward to getting access to IMAX close to home. “This is great news,” said LeDrew, a Brentwood resident. “I normally go to Dublin if I want to see a movie in IMAX, so it’ll be great to have it here in town. There are a lot of big, blockbuster mov-

ies coming out this year, and IMAX will make those movies even better.” LeDrew said he likes IMAX because the technology allows a movie to be experienced instead of casually absorbed. see Rave page 14A

Budget woes slow Century milestone Delta talks to trickle by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer As East County residents fear the creation of a peripheral canal that would pump more water from the San Joaquin Delta to Southern California, the state’s budget problems are slowing down deliberations on the canal for now. According to Matthew Emrick, an attorney representing Antioch in Delta matters, the transition from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Jerry Brown at the governor’s desk has put the water issue on the backburner, as Sacramento officials focus on the deficit of roughly $19 billion. Gov. Brown has ordered environmental impact reports on the canal’s options, a process that Emrick said should be completed by the end of the year. Additionally, the recently disbanded steering committee for the Bay Delta Conservation Plan should reconvene soon. At Tuesday’s Antioch City Council meeting, Emrick and city Capital Improvements Director Phil Harrington delivered a PowerPoint presentation detailing the current state of the Delta. Emrick said that while politicians have generally been in favor of building the canal, a roughly $50 billion project, many residents on both sides of the proposed pipe haven’t been as enthusiastic. “You have 23 million people in Southern California who are said to need additional water,” Emrick said. “Although when you talk to the rate-payers down there, they don’t necessarily want to pay for what it’s going to cost to get that water to them.” Emrick spoke excitedly about Senate Bill 200, introduced Feb. 8 by Sen. Lois Wolk, who represents parts of San Joaquin, Sacramento and Yolo counties. The bill, if passed, would either prevent the creation of the canal or en-

act strict conditions to be met if it is built, such as reduced reliance on the Delta. SB 200 puts in place a deadline of Jan. 1, 2012 for state and Delta agencies to resolve their differences. If the canal goes through, Emrick fears that the fresh water of the Delta would become saltier, which could have a detrimental effect on the local ecosystem. The attorney said that studies have shown that the Delta was much fresher before water was pushed down south. Despite the steam that the canal proposal has gained in recent years, Harrington said Antioch’s concerns have been taken into account in Sacramento: “There are some issues, some water quality standards that have to be met, and there are major points of division between the environmentalists and non-government agencies and state water exporters. We’re starting to see some progress, where a lot of Antioch’s concerns and the current agreement we have with the department of water resources is actually starting to be folded into the action plan.” Emrick noted that environmentalists are trying to lessen the pumping rate of the canal from 15,000 cubic feet per second to roughly 8,000. Ideally, Emrick said, the canal would be reduced to the neighborhood of 2,000 to 3,000 cubic feet per second, if it is built. Emrick said other officials are pushing for the state to mitigate any impacts the canal would make on the local ecosystem. “I want to be on the record that I’m against the conveyance system,” Councilman Gary Agopian said. “If they want it, they can pay for it, and they can pay for what we need in Antioch. I think the residents in Antioch need to stand up for our water rights, because it could end up being a lot more expensive for us.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

CHANCE TO HELP JAPAN & NZ QUAKE VICTIMS

Photo courtesy of George Gambel

Students, including future mayor George Gambel (front row, fourth from right) pose in front of the first Excelsior School in 1936 or 1937.

Excelsior revisited George Gambel became mayor of Brentwood in 1970. Before that, he attended the first Excelsior School, located at the corner of Marsh Creek Road and Highway 4. George forwards this picture, which he believes was made in 1936 or 1937. The future mayor is fourth from the right in the bottom row, while his sister, Joyce, is second from the left in the top row. To her right is the late Nina Geddes, while to her left is Gladys Peterson (nee Abreu). The three were known as “The Inseparables,”

George says, and Joyce and Gladys still are. Excelsior, after which the current Excelsior Middle School was named, was a three-room school housing the first, second and third grades in one ground-floor room, and the fourth, fifth and sixth in another. Upstairs were the seventh and eighth grades. There was no auditorium, so graduation was held at the Odd Fellows Lodge in Byron. Says George, “The teachers were very, very good being able to handle three classes at once.”

[I’d like to take a break from any real estate topics this week and share with you some information about how you can help the victims of the recent earthquakes that have devastated parts of New Zealand and then Japan.] Shortly after the Christchurch, NZ, Feb 22nd earthquake hit, a 17-year old Brentwood resident, James Graydon, was speaking with his mom and expressed a desire to want to do something to help the people of NZ since he has relatives living in that city and his grandfather, local resident Rob Gwynne, had lived there for 32 years before coming to America. From that initial conversation, a global fundraising campaign was sparked and became reality in short order. As soon as the Japanese earthquake hit, the focus of the campaign was expanded to include both countries. To donate online, please visit www. aid4rof.org, click on the "Act Now" tab and follow the instructions. You can

specify if you want your funds to benefit Japan or NZ (if you have a preference). To send a check, please make it payable to: Love 4 Our Neighbors - with AID4ROF in the memo line and mail to: Love 4 Our Neighbors, 2025 Newton Drive, Brentwood, CA 94513. Or, you may visit any Chase branch in the U.S. to make a deposit directly into account number 904813888. Net proceeds will directly benefit the victims of the Christchurch, NZ earthquake and the Northeastern Japan earthquake & tsunami. Funds will be wired directly to non-profit partners in each country.

Scholarship Connected Kindergarten After reading a newspaper story about Parents Connected in Antioch in January, veterinarian Howard Schutzman decided he wanted to help with the group’s mission of getting kids into college. According to Schutzman, he was prompted to act because the group did not sit back and complain, but mobilized and did something. Schutzman’s generosity came in the form of two $500 scholarships awarded to student members of Parents Connected. Schutzman outlined the criteria: each applicant wrote an essay on “Why I Want to Go to College.” He read each application and made the selection. The two deserving recipients, Mercedes Shade Cooper and Garrieth Nelson, are both seniors at Deer Valley High School. Garrieth hopes to attend Langston University and Mercedes has her sights set on Stanford, when she plans a career in medicine. Parents Connected is a grassroots organization founded in November of 2009 by Antioch parents Synitha Walker, Tina Price and Darice Ingram. As concerned parents seeking to provide support for their college-bound children, they discovered many obstacles, including lack of specific preparation for the CAHSEE (California’s high school exit exam) and lack of preparatory courses for college entrance exams in the Antioch area. As Synitha, Tina and Darice worked to obtain information to ensure their own children were on the college track, they discovered that many other parents lacked this vital information – and Parents Connected was founded. The organization’s goal is to equip parents with knowledge to help their children get to college. Formally organizing as a nonprofit, two other parents who shared the same passion for students’ success – Maria Healy and Velma Waddell – were added to the board of directors. As the board was completed, the mission was clarified: The goal of Parents Connected is to engage the student’s entire family, schools and community leaders in creating a college-going culture in which high expectation for success is standard. Underlying Parents Connected’s work is the belief that all parents, no matter their socio-economic, racial or cultural background, dream of success for their children. Parents Connected strongly believes that in order to bring that dream to life, parents must take an active role in their children’s education. Parents Connected’s past endeavors include CAHSEE preparation workshops for English and math; ACT/SAT Prep Courses (offered at a significant discount); college entrance and financial aid workshops; a college tour; a college fair in conjunction with the Antioch Unified School District; middle school Parents’ Night (educating parents on college requirements and high school courses students must take to meet requirements); and the Martin Luther King Day Cel-

ebration (with the City of Antioch and AUSD). Although Parents Connected was founded by Antioch parents, the organization hopes to establish a presence in all of East Contra Costa County, working with all the school districts in order to increase the college-going rates in the community.

Save our school libraries Editor: The California School Library Association (CSLA) has launched the California Campaign for Strong School Libraries to make the public aware of the importance of strong school libraries for our children. School librarians teach students the skills needed to be critical and proficient users of information on the Internet. They also guide them to a love of reading, because they know the books better than anyone in the school. The State Board of Education has adopted Model School Library Standards that teach students how to be digitally safe, proficient readers and lifelong learners. School librarians need to be in the library to apply these standards and support our students. A school library is more than a room with some books in it. Research has proven that increases in the number of services school libraries provide are related to higher STAR test scores. To learn more about the campaign, please visit http://librarycampaign.csla. net. Diane Alexander, CSLA President Discovery Bay

Public-sector unions unfair Editor: The commentary emanating from the rally that public-sector union supporters staged recently prompts this response: Logic should tell one that negotiations require two adversarial parties at the bargaining table. Public-sector unions are essentially bargaining with their own ilk. The parties on the other side of the table are derivatives of the political system. The taxpayer is left out of the process. Agreements that include forced union membership fly against the freedoms provided by the Constitution. It follows that allowing employee union dues to be used for political purposes is a

blatant abuse of the system. Taxpayers do not have similar organization funding representing their interests. Despite the fact that their own pension benefits are far less than most public sector employees, they are left with the burden of funding the public sector. Does that sound fair or even viable when state budgets are growing and threatening the possibility of insolvency? Public-sector employees generally enjoy comprehensive peripheral benefits, with little or no cost to them. Such benefits include coverage in the areas of health care, disability, sick leave, life insurance and the like, that few privatesector employees enjoy. They are also not confronted with the type of competition for their respective jobs that exist in the private sector. Further, they can exert inordinate pressure, including the threat of a strike, with little chance of being penalized or replaced. When thrust on the electorate, the threat of closing down public schools, ceasing to provide government services, including garbage disposal and the like, government officials have the tendency to cave in to demands. After all, the least path of resistance for them is to dip into the public coffers to satisfy the claims and calm potential public discontent with the results of a strike. Fairness alone dictates that public-sector workers should not have such an advantage over privatesector workers. It should be apparent that the taxes from the private sector provide the funding for the public sector. Any taxes that the public sector pays are just recirculation of the taxes paid by the private sector. Too long have taxpayers been unfairly saddled with the payment for “defined benefit” public-sector employee pensions that should have been funded over the years by means of “defined contributions.” Allowing the pension plans to exist in their present form will continue to perpetuate that which cannot financially survive. The need for these unions is in question. Perhaps the responsibility for the benefits of public-sector employees should return to solely the legislative and executive branches. Ben Cerruti Brentwood

are going to get this mess corrected! I recently found out from a friend that is selling his house that there is a new $350 up-front fee being charged by the HOA for the DBPOA documents that are necessary to sell your home. He got a call from his escrow officer yesterday telling him to quickly bring down a check or give her a credit card. Now, maybe I missed some big announcement about this from our new management company but I am certain I did not know about this before yesterday. These are the types of little surprises that you will find when you are a member of the DBPOA. Doesn’t it seem a wee bit excessive to pay 14 years of dues in order to sell your house? This is just one of many reasons you need to get involved, do your research, and vote! I have found the DBPOAC.com website historically correct and a great resource for information about the DBPOA.

Disability awareness disabled Editor: I’m a visually impaired Oakley resident who is growing weary with an uncooperative city government in my efforts to gain equal access rights to pedestrian crossings for seniors and people with disabilities. Although blind, I’m proud to say that I am fully able to travel alone via bus, BART, Amtrak and plane. However, I find it ironic that I am unable to access my local supermarket, just two blocks from my home because there is no accessible pedestrian signal (APS or audibly queued signal) on that route. My fight for equal access pedestrian facilities was featured as a front-page newspaper article a few years ago. Since then, on numerous occasions I have reminded the Oakley council what we need; but whenever I attend council meetings to bring up this subject, they assume they know our needs and give me a bunch of lip service. One council woman even told me to cross Main Street to use the sidewalk on the other side. Which part of being blind does she not understand? How can they address these equal access needs if they won’t even try to understand them? City governments find it easy to dismiss the right of the disabled to pedestrian facilities, thinking we’re incapacitated and remain indoors anyway. In all of my attempts to get my point across, no one has ever tried contacting me to find out what our disabled community needs. My concerns have been ignored and I was most recently sent away to deal with the city engineer, who was helpful to a certain degree, but upon further questions, he ceased communication with me entirely.

I’d love to be the first person to use a fully accessible crosswalk at Teakwood and Main Street to visit my friends at Radio Shack and B of A when the project (CIP 101) is completed. I am told the city passed my request on to CalTrans and am quite certain, this was the last of it. I find it frustrating that they choose to not assert political clout and advocate for our community’s disabled residents’ rights. I remain optimistic that Oakley officials will see the importance of this issue, but until then, I have decided to engage other groups who will help me insist all that new projects built in Oakley be ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant. Our most immediate concern is the Signalization Project at O’Hara and Cypress near Saint Anthony’s Church, O’Hara Middle School, and leads to what will be an all-access playground (CIP 91). I have been most frustrated at obtaining specific information about this project from the city. I’m certain the crossing feature of this project needs to be re-engineered to take all pedestrians’ needs into account. Walking to dinner at Aladino’s Pizza in the Lucky’s Shopping center and grabbing some groceries before my walk home would be a dream come true. I’ll help the economy, one purchase at a time!

Interns help businesses, businesses help interns Editor: For the past few years, our seventheighth-grade class has gone out into the community to intern with a variety of businesses for a three-day period of time. This experience has taught our students many things, including: what it takes to be involved in their community, what it takes to get and keep a job, plus what it will take to reach their career goals. We would like to thank the following businesses that sponsored a student this year: Laurel Ridge Community Church, Straw Hat Pizza, Kumon Center, Clawson Construction, Antioch Paintball Park, De Anza Gardens, Best Buy, Bio Zone, Clayton Fire Department, American Shaolin Kenpo, Sutter Delta, Dr. Frigard, Oakland Fire Station 24, Antioch Fire Station 81, Antioch Plumbing, Pet Frolic Inn, The Krey Academy, Museum of Ancient Life, First American Title, Turner Elementary, Bethel Island Community Church, Diablo View Florist, Bright Star Christian Child Center, John Muir Elementary, and Sutter East Bay.

COMMUNITY

Garden club turns 75 The Knightsen Garden Club celebrated 75 years of service to the community in February. The social and service club was established in February of 1936. Charter members included many descendants of Knightsen’s early settlers. A gala birthday party celebration, featuring potluck soup and a ceremonial cake, was held in January. Butternut squash soup was provided by Carolyn Sherfy, minestrone soup from the kitchen of Cecelia TomayoCanzani and homemade chicken and rice soup by Alberta Liddington. Other members provided additional homemade dishes such as a variety of breads, vegetables, salads and rice pudding. Present at the party were members, family and friends. The eldest member present was Gladys Mercer, who joined in 1956. The second longest attending member present was her daughter, Pat Bello, who joined in 1964.

In 2008, the volunteer Knightsen Firefighter’s Association merged with the Knightsen Garden Club. Since that time they have restored the historic clubhouse in downtown Knightsen. The building has also been the meeting place of the Knightsen Town Advisory Council and the Knightsen Community Service District. In addition to being the only social club in the neighborhood, the Knighsten Garden Club’s serves the needs of the Knightsen Community and provide support to the Knightsen Elementary School District. The club, under the direction of President Barr Everhart, is currently soliciting new members. Annual dues are $15. All adults with an interest in Knightsen are invited to come to a meeting or two and submit a membership application. Meetings are held at the clubhouse on the first Monday of the month, usually at 7 p.m. For more information, call Carolyn at 925-516-7798.

Rave from page 3A The full screen engulfs you, transporting you into the action of the story. But IMAX isn’t likely to dominate moviegoing, according to LeDrew. “IMAX is exciting, but not every film should be in IMAX,� he said. “Just like not every movie should be in 3D. An IMAX experience is good for big films like ‘Avatar,’ which was an epic movie with landmark special effects. That’s something you want to see big. But a movie like ‘The King’s Speech’? That’s fine in 2D.� The IMAX theater will open with “Fast Five: An IMAX Experience,� the fifth installment of the “Fast and the Furious� franchise, and a series of blockbusters will roll out throughout the summer, including “Thor� in IMAX 2D and “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides� in IMAX 3D. But since IMAX isn’t for everyone, 2D and digital 3D versions of those films will also be released, giving everyone a chance to enjoy them. That’s good news to Brentwood resident Annette Epstein, who prefers her movies without all the bells and whistles. “IMAX is an experience like no other, but it’s a little too ‘in your face’ for me,� she said. “Now, my kids love it because it’s big and loud and you feel like you’re right in the action, but it’s not for me. Although, if the last Harry Potter movie is in IMAX, and it’s right here in town, I might have to give it another try.� Epstein is in luck. The final Harry Potter film will be released in IMAX 3D

MARCH 25, 2011

along with “Cars 2� and “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.� When IMAX debuted in 1967, IMAX films were nature and science documentaries, but in the past five years, Hollywood has embraced this evolving movie technology and produced enough IMAX films to fill out the calendar. Devine said Rave will most likely pass on documentaries. The tickets cost more but LeDrew said it’s worth it. “I love movies, but honestly, there are a lot of films out right now that aren’t worth seeing on the big screen. But when it’s in IMAX, it’s worth every penny. You feel like you’re in the movie, and that’s a great way to experience an action flick – like you’re right at the center of everything.� LeDrew is far from alone in his enthusiasm, which is why Rave is adding IMAX theaters to more than a dozen of its facilities across the country. “It’s very clear that consumers associate the IMAX brand with the best way to go to the movies, and we believe that sentiment fits ideally with the direction and image of the Rave brand,� said Tom Stephenson, Rave vice chairman. “Many factors contributed to our decision to expand our IMAX business, including the ongoing success of Hollywood films in that format, the impressive film slate and the favorable economics of IMAX’s digital projection system.� For more information about Rave IMAX theaters and upcoming films, visit www.ravemotionpictures.com.

Curves to kick off HARP’s 35th birthday food drive in April (or 5th in human years) During the month of April, Curves of Antioch will participate in the 13th annual Curves Food Drive, which collects non-perishable food and cash donations to benefit a local food bank. Current members who make a $30 donation or an equivalent donation of food are eligible to receive a Curves reusable Food Drive grocery bag. From April 4 through 17, Curves will waive the membership fee for new members who donate a bag of nonperishable food or make a minimum donation of $30. In addition to the food and monetary donations that each gym collects, Curves International is offering gyms the opportunity to win cash prizes for their local food banks. Prizes will be awarded to clubs that collect the most food and clubs that beat their 2010 donation level by the largest amount. Prizes will also

be awarded to two randomly selected clubs drawn from all the clubs who enter the contest. Curves clubs have donated more than 61 million pounds of food in the United States and Canada since 2004. “The past few years have been difficult for many families,” said Curves founder Diane Heavin. “Curves’ annual Food Drive is one way that everyone in the Antioch area can make a real difference for a local family who is struggling. We encourage everyone, not just our members or those who are thinking about joining our gym, to make a cash donation or drop off a bag of nonperishable food items in April.” For more information about the 2011 Curves Food Drive and Curves of Antioch, 3132 Contra Loma Blvd., call 925-777-9787.

Homeless Animals Response Program (HARP) is celebrating its fifth anniversary by providing five bags of dog food to each person who adopts a dog from HARP in the next month. All dogs and puppies are up to date on immunizations (including rabies if they are more than 4 months old), spayed or neutered, and micro chipped. The adoption fee is $200. Dogs will be available at Petsmart, 5829 Lone Tree Way in Antioch (Slatten Ranch Shopping Center) on Sundays from noon to 3 p.m. HARP has rescued and re-homed 661 cats and 393 dogs in the past five years. Many of these 1,054 dogs and cats have been pulled from local shelters just days before they were scheduled to be put down. Many others were surrendered from people in our community who could not financially care for them. This service to the community by HARP volunteers saves taxpayer money. All revenues go to programs to save lives. There

AARP program takes the toxic out of taxes Years ago I would have let my political opinions be known and raised my voice about taxes. In late 1969 I put away my soapbox and now I am happy to say there is good news about taxes. Yes, I said good news. From hippy protester to information booth, I enjoy this much more and I don’t get into as much trouble! AARP has a program that provides free tax return service. A fabulous group of volunteers are available to do low- to moderate-income tax returns for people over 60 who reside in Contra Costa County. You do not need to be an AARP member. If you are unsure if you qualify (most people do), you can call Mike Callahan for basic information at 925-673-9767 or e-mail him at sendmike@pacbell.net. The program doesn’t do income or rental property. Might I add again: it’s free! You need to make an appointment. To get your tax return prepared Tuesdays at the Pittsburgh Senior Center, 300 Presidio Lane, call 925-252-4890. If you’d like to get your tax return prepared Wednesdays at the Brentwood Senior Center, 193 Griffith Lane, drop by in person to set up an appointment. The Antioch Senior Center, 415 W. Second St., is the venue for tax-return preparation on Thursdays.

Call 925-778-1158. Get scheduled as soon as possible, as I imagine the slots fill up quickly. This amazing program, which served 1,429 seniors last year, is run by volunteers – and needs more volunteers to continue running next year. Two of the most important needs are unrelated to tax matters and require no knowledge in this field. One is administrative and the other technical. The technical coordinator should be someone with good software/hardware background. The district coordinator should be a good administrator, an organized person who has some management background. Ideal candidates for these roles are retired and looking for an opportunity to help others by using their expertise. It’s also a great way to meet people and make new friends. If you know someone or are interested yourself, contact Mike for more information on these needs. This program takes the toxic out of taxes. If this was 1969, my sign would read differently, but in 2011 my new sign says “Free Is Good!” Marla Luckhardt, a Discovery Bay resident and member of the East Contra Costa Senior Coalition, works with several local senior care and advocacy groups.

The 1979 Liberty High football team, Liberty football and wrestling star Billy Beltram, Liberty football and baseball standout David Martin, MVP defensive lineman Gabe Dal Porto, Freedom champion wrestler Jason Montgomery, recordbreaking Liberty swimmer John Dwelley and Freedom three-sport star Keri Kresevich will be inducted into the district’s Hall of Fame. Tickets are $37.50 and must be prepaid at Liberty Alternative Education, 929 Second St. For information, call Joann Morrison at 925-634-2565, ext. 1022.

1979 Liberty football team After posting three consecutive winning seasons between 1976, ’78 and ’79, the Liberty Lions football team enjoyed one of the most successful seasons in school history, posting a 7-1 overall mark and capturing a share of the Foothill Athletic League title.

The 1979 Liberty High football team, co-champions of the Foothill Athletic League, will be inducted into the Liberty Union High School District Hall of Fame next month. Led by head coach Mark Watson and assistant coaches Jerry Lilley and John Rodgers, the 1979 group proved one of the stingiest defensive groups ever to set foot on Ohmstede Field. Led by a defense that allowed a scant 86 points all season – a mark unequaled since that time – the Lions won their final four contests of the season to claim their share of the league championship.

Half of the team received all-league honors, including first-team honors for David Continente, Gordon Ball, Kevin Vornhagen, Louis Fernandez, Brian Biddle and Stan Orman. Fernandez was also recognized as the team’s Most Valuable Player, while Biddle and Ball represented the Lions in the annual Contra Costa-Alameda All-Star Game in the summer of 1980.

East County BMXers team up for fun by Michael Dixon Correspondent

While the Brentwood Bike Team isn’t the first of its kind in East County, its formation in January was a major step for local BMX enthusiasts who want to see the sport grow in the area. The team’s main sponsor is the Brentwood Bike Company, owned by Chris and Bobbi Michalski. The team of eight kids was selected from a group of more than two dozen that tried out in November. The Brentwood Bike Team is run in the same way that high schools run their teams. In addition to demonstrating a proficiency in the sport, members (ranging in age from 13 to 20) must carry at least a 2.0 grade point average. While the Michalskis are happy to give them an opportunity, they also hope the team will help cultivate a crop of young riders for the future. “It’s a growing sport, and it’s been growing for years. It’s not something that’s brand new,” said Bobbi. “With more and more of the kids of the community growing up and getting into BMX, we need to kind of plan for their future.” A problem faced by the Brentwood Bike Team, as well as others, is the lack of a legal local venue. Right now, they hone their abilities on out-of-town trips to bike parks such as the one in Fresno. The local opportunities come at bike shows such as the one held at the recent Brentwood Chamber of Commerce Mixer. Other than that, the only opportunities to ride come from whatever the kids can find in the community. One misconception team members want to dispel is their alleged air of unpleasantness. Instead, their goal is to spread the sport’s popularity by being

friendly role models to prospective BMXers. “I was instantly attracted to it,” said team member Mikey Bonzi, 14, of Discovery Bay. “It’s like a getaway for me.” In addition to raising awareness, the Brentwood Bike Company hopes to gain additional sponsors for the team. Sponsors not only support the team financially; they act as volunteers at events such as the BMX contest on April 2, which will be a part of the Brentwood Bike Company’s anniversary party.

Beyond the sheer enjoyment of riding, members see the team as an opportunity to meet new friends. “It’s a diverse group. Everybody just has their own styles and personalities,” said Marcos Revuelta, 17, the consensus best rider on the team. “It’s really fun. It’s really fun to go out on road trips and hang out with people who are different.” For sponsorship and event information, call the Brentwood Bike Company at 925-634-5000, e-mail brentwoodbikeco@att.net or visit www.brentwoodbikeco.com.

Tough from page 21A beating Northgate in two games. In the gold bracket, De La Salle topped San Ramon Valley for the top title. “Overall, I think we played pretty well,” senior outside hitter Jason Agopian said. “When we play teams like this, it just helps us out so much more.” Deer Valley, which hosted the tournament along with Heritage, beat Monte Vista in its first match 25-14, 25-13. Next, the Wolverines moved on to face Chico, winning 25-16 and 25-10. However, it was Deer Valley’s third game that was the truest test. An energized Campolindo squad surprised the Wolverines, easily winning the first game 25-16. Deer Valley claimed a 25-14 victory in the next game, but couldn’t hold off the Cougars in a surprisingly tense atmosphere. Campolindo finished off the Wolverines 15-12 to send them to the silver bracket. Head coach Lou Panzella was impressed by how his squad bounced back from the loss to the Cougars. Deer Valley (7-2) was hoping to get a shot at the true upper-echelon teams in the area such as De La Salle and Amador Valley, but the team didn’t let the loss affect them. Instead, the Wolverines went back to work. “I’m glad we came back up and won the silver bracket instead of pouting,” Panzella said. “I feel pretty good about where we are. We’ve got a couple more tournaments coming up in the

SPORTS

next few weeks.” Deer Valley toppled Mission San Jose of Fremont in the next round 2516 and 25-14. Next, the Wolverines beat College Park 25-12 in both games. In the final game of the silver bracket, Deer Valley defeated Northgate 25-20, 25-19. Against the Broncos, sophomore setter Derrico Kwa made 25 assists. The 6-foot-7-inch Agopian notched 11 kills while senior outside hitter Taylor Higgs contributed eight. Senior libero Brian Yi finished with 11 digs. “I think we were a little disappointed that we ended up in the silver division, but we lost that crossover game to Campolindo, who is really good, so it wasn’t like it was a bad loss,” Panzella said. “The results of the day show how much equity there is of local teams.” Every other Bay Valley Athletic League team competed in the tournament, though none achieved the Wolverines success. Antioch and Freedom qualified for the silver bracket, but lost in the first round to Northgate and College Park, respectively. Liberty advanced to the second round of the bronze bracket, held at Heritage, after its competitor failed to show up. The Lions ended up losing to Washington, which beat Pittsburg in its first game. Heritage fell to Granada in the opening round of the bronze tournament. To comment, visit www.thepress. net.

Freedom bounces back in victory over Antioch by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer What has been a bumpy start for Freedom High’s boys varsity tennis team got smoother on Tuesday, as the Falcons claimed an 8-1 victory over Antioch. At the head of the winning effort was junior Justin Monge, who so far is 2-0 as Freedom’s top singles player. Recently bumped up from the No. 2 slot, Monge has responded well to the leadership role. It took a tiebreaker on Tuesday, but Monge was able to earn a victory over the Panthers’ top athlete, Ikram Najib. “I just tried hard and everything went into place,” Monge said. The win gave the Falcons a 5-5 record overall; 1-1 against Bay Valley Athletic League teams. Freedom went 5-1 in singles play, losing to Antioch in the No. 5 match, as Mike Bongi emerged over Drake Miller. The Falcons also swept all three doubles games. Though the score was not exactly in the Panthers’ favor, head coach Larry John-

son felt they fought Freedom admirably in what will likely be a season of growth. Antioch fell to 0-6 overall (0-1 BVAL). “It was good to see Ikram come back from being down, and in the second set, strike back,” Johnson said. “We’ve got a lot of young players that just have to develop their game and hopefully show some improvement throughout the season and into next year.” Things were not as positive on Monday for the Falcons, who found themselves on the business end of a 9-0 victory by Heritage, believed by some coaches to be the next BVAL champion. Freedom head coach Steve Amaro felt Tuesday’s win was important, allowing the team to recover mentally and prepare for Deer Valley and the next match-up with the Patriots. “There are still things that we need to work on, but the positive thing that I saw is that everybody was willing to work on improvement,” Amaro said. “The things that we did poorly (Monday), they put behind them and really had a team focus.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Young Pats trump Falcons by Michael Dixon Correspondent

Facing constant wind and overcast skies threatening rain, Freedom and Heritage’s boys golf teams got their league season underway on Tuesday. Fortunately, the rain didn’t hit Brentwood’s Creekside Nine until the golfers were done. In addition to the less than ideal conditions, the Patriots were missing two of their top players, juniors Tyler Connell and Ryan Bell. Heritage fielded five sophomores and one senior, a lineup good enough to pull out a 222-259 victory over the Falcons. Sophomore Chris Maxwell played in the Patriots’ top position and recorded the lowest score for either team on the par-40 course, making four pars and one birdie on his way to carding a 40. “I played pretty well; I had some good holes,” said Maxwell. “I hit my irons and chipped and putted well. My driver wasn’t the greatest but it was OK. It didn’t really hurt me; it wasn’t that bad.” Sophomore Carney Hocking made five pars and one double-bogey on his way to a 41. Heritage sophomores Justin Barnes and Tyler Brookens shot 46 and 44, respectively. Freedom featured two sophomores, two juniors and two seniors. The Falcons’ top two players were junior Dave White and senior Dan Milina, each carding a 45. Behind them were juniors Kyle Timm and Nick Wagner, who posted 53 and 55. “We’ve been doing alright,” said White. “We just need to practice more, probably with longer practices. And we should really focus on putting.” Heritage coach Mark Tinder was happy with the progress of his young team. A day before playing the Falcons, the Patriots placed 12th at the 21-team Aiello Invitational tournament held in Discovery Bay and hosted by Liberty. Among Bay Valley Athletic League teams, Deer Valley posted the best finish, third, following San

To get to the next level, the players must believe they’re good enough to be there. Falcons coach Ken Saunders acknowledged that his golfers have work to do. Their preseason matches and tournaments were rained out, leaving them less prepared for their opening match. Despite that and despite the loss, Saunders is happy with his roster. “This is basically my core group,” said Saunders. “They’re dedicated. Even though it’s spring break, they’re here. They’re determined to make something for the team and for themselves.” The task will get no easier for Freedom, which plays Deer Valley and Liberty in its next two matches. Heritage will host Antioch on Thursday before its own backto-back matches against the Wolverines and Lions, the only teams to finish ahead of the Patriots in league play a season ago.

Cherry’s Tax Facts... By Cherry Comstock

The Joy of Giving Meets the Joy of Deducting Those who remember the public attention that former president Bill Clinton’s tax return attracted when he deducted $2 apiece for donated underwear may shy away from claiming deductions for charitable donations. The fear of IRS scrutiny of the values you assign to your second-hand clothes is a legitimate concern. If you assign too low a value, you are not getting the deduction you deserve, but too high a value might attract unwanted attention from the IRS. So, when IRS tells us the deduction may not exceed “fair market value”–the price a knowledgeable buyer would pay—how can the taxpayer be sure his or her estimate is on the mark? The first thing to consider in claiming charitable deductions is that in order to do so, you must file Form 1040 and itemize deductions. Second, your donations must be made to a qualified organization; no matter how much of a charity case your brother-in-law may seem to be, you may not claim donations to individuals. Regardless of the fashion advantage some consumers attribute to ripped or torn jeans, IRS does not see it that way. Donated clothing must be in good condition or better to be deducted. One helpful resource is the online valuation guides Goodwill Industries and the Salvation Army publish to help donors estimate the value of many commonly donated items, including clothing, household

items, furniture and computers. If you are claiming that your donation is worth over $250, IRS is going to want to see some proof... You’ll need to ask the qualified organization that received your donation for a written description of the property donated and a statement concerning whether or not any goods or services were received in exchange for the contribution. If your non-cash contributions total over $500, you must fill out the IRS Form Non-cash Charitable Contributions and attach it to your return. Once any donation tops $5000, a qualified appraisal will be necessary, along with more paperwork. Other charitable contributions can include tickets to charity events, stocks, cash, or even items of historical value. To make sure you take advantage of every available deduction and avoid unwanted attention from the IRS, it is a good idea to consult with an enrolled agent when you are claiming large deductions for charitable contributions. Enrolled agents (“EAs”) are tax specialists licensed by the U.S. Department of the Treasury who may represent taxpayers before IRS for audits, collections and appeals. 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. – Advertisement

Blasting through the capital city The Brentwood PONY Lady Blast 12U softball team recently won back-toback tournaments in Sacramento. In late February, the Blast rolled through three Saturday pool games, winning 10-2, 18-3 and 1-0. Strong hitting by Madison Jackson, Annie Lyons, Taylor Munson and Gabie Edwards combined with strong defense from Lyons and Michaela Foisy supported the outstanding pitching of Jackson, Foisy and Kit Kat Skym. The hit parade continued Sunday as the top-seeded Blast rolled off victories of 10-0 and 7-0. Jackson did not give up a run the entire tournament. Skym and Jackson hit back-to-back homers. In a tournament played in March, the Blast went 1-2 in the pool games

on Saturday, featuring a game-winning home run by Gabie Edwards in a 7-6 victory. The No. 5 seeded Blast proceeded to win 5-4, 8-4, and 2-0 in the championship game. Jackson pitched all three Sunday contests and seemed to get stronger as the day went by. Maekayla Martin, who was named defensive MVP, stopped every ball hit anywhere close to third base. Foisy (9-for-14, eight runs), Skym (7-for-15, four runs), Munson (6-for-14, four runs) and Lyons (4-for-11, three runs) were the hitting stars. Foisy led off the championship game with her first career home run, which proved to be the tournament winner. – Contributed by Mike Foisy

His senior year culminated in his coronation as champion at the BVAL and NCS tournaments, and placing seventh overall in the state of California at the CIF State tournament. Beltram’s football achievements are as impressive as his wrestling stats. In his first year on the varsity football team, he was selected as First Team All-BVAL as a defensive end and was named Liberty’s Lineman of the Year. As a returning letterman in his senior year, he was selected as All-BVAL Second Team Defensive End, Liberty High School Team Lineman of the Year and team captain.

David L. Martin David L. Martin attended Liberty Union High School from 1984 to’88, during which time he established his reputation as an outstanding two-sport athlete, student leader and scholar. As a freshman, Martin earned a varsity letter as the starting third baseman for the varsity baseball team and won the Top-Hitter Award with a .364 batting average. He was selected as a FAL Honorable Mention Award winner and lettered on the junior varsity football team. In his sophomore year, Martin again started at third base and won the Top-Hitter Award – this time with a sizzling .435 average. He was selected to the FAL All-League Second Team and lettered on the varsity football squad as a linebacker. Many honors were bestowed on Martin. He was named Yearbook Athlete of the Year, the Brentwood News Scholar Athlete, received a Presidential Fitness Award and was selected to the Northern California-National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame for his achievements as a scholar, citizen and athlete.

Gabe Dal Porto A Liberty student from 1995 to ’99, Gabe Dal Porto became a stalwart of the Lions football program, earning letters as a freshman and sophomore on the freshman and junior varsity teams and making a huge impact on the varsity football team in his junior and senior years. As a defensive end – the “rush end” – he established a Liberty record of 15 sacks. He was named a First-Team AllLeague defensive lineman, MVP defensive lineman, and was selected to the Tri-County First Team for the ’98 season. He was also a member of the Block L Society at Liberty. Gabe is the first third-generation family member to be inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame. His father, Steve, was a football standout at Liberty and the University of Colorado and inducted into the Class of 2001 Hall of Fame. His grandfather, Bob, played on the University of California Rose Bowl team in 1949 and was inducted into the class of ’93 Hall of Fame.

Jason Montgomery Although Jason Montgomery’s athletic career at Freedom is laced with accolades, he was also a tremendous academic student, garnering eight North Coast Section Academic Scholar Awards for each season he participated in both football and wrestling. In each of his four years at Freedom, he maintained a perfect 4.0 GPA and was a leader among his peers on his teams. see Inducted page 29A

John Dwelley John Dwelley entered Liberty High School in 2000 and became a standout swimmer unlike any in Lions history. As a freshman in the spring of 2001, he broke the 100-, 200-, and 500-yard freestyle school records and was named to the All-League First Team. He went on to place fourth in the 500-yard freestyle (4:36.82) and fifth in the 200-yard freestyle (1:42.60) at NCS, earning him recognition as a National Interscholastic Swimming Coaches Association (NISCA) High School All American Honorable Mention Team member. During his sophomore year, Dwelley continued his winning ways by earning BVAL First Team All-League honors once again, and dominated the competition in his junior year. His versatility began to emerge and he broke Liberty team records in the 100-yard butterfly, 100-yard backstroke and 200-yard individual medley. Dwelley posted an incredible senior year. In addition to being named Most Valuable Swimmer, he was selected as Liberty’s Most Outstanding Senior Athlete in 2004. An exceptional swimmer, John was also recognized for his academic abilities, capturing the NCS Scholar Athlete and USA Swimming Scholastic All-American awards. He accepted a full-ride swimming scholarship to Arizona State University.

Keri Kresevich Keri Kresevich is one of the true originals at Freedom High School, attending Freedom from 1996 to 2000. She was a member of Freedom’s original freshman class, an academic and extracurricular club leader, and the school’s first tri-sport athlete. She attended Oakley schools from kindergarten through high school graduation and maintained an honors GPA during her time at Freedom. Kresevich is best known for her tennis accolades, earning four consecutive Freedom MVP awards, but she was also a leader in basketball and track. Between her freshmen and sophomore year, she not only saw her stats improve from a 5.8 points per game average to 6.9, but ran track and was the anchor of the 4x400 medley relay. Tennis was her greatest passion. Once Freedom moved to varsity competition in her sophomore year, she earned all-league recognition, moving from Honorable Mention in the TCAL as a sophomore to Second Team status in her junior and senior years. —Contributed by Mary Webber

New Brentwood site to help attract business by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer In the fast-moving world of business development, providing easy access to information is key. In Brentwood, that means firms looking for information about locating in the city won’t even need to get out of their car. “Brentwood is the first city in the Bay Area to have an economic development Web site designed for hand-held devices,” said Economic Development and Planning Director Alex Greenwood. “The nature of the real estate business is that a lot of brokers and business representatives work in the field. This will allow them to access information from their hand-held devices.” The site, www.businessinbrentwood. com, was launched this month, Greenwood told the City Council Tuesday. One of the brightest features will be a site locater, which will allow prospective businesses to search for vacant properties by size, type of planned use, whether the property is for sale or lease, and other important criteria. Available sites in Brentwood that match a business’s needs is then generated and displayed on a map of the city, along with owner or real-estate-agent contact infor-

Site from page 1A “Thank you but these proposals are not quite fitting what we believe is the appropriate use (for the property) because we need to use it, too. It’s not just handing it off. It’s how are we going to jointly work together with this.” Anderson said she hopes the property will be used for after-school programs, daycare, and senior citizen programs. She also suggested that one of the buildings could be rented out as a meeting space, as the city’s other community meeting location, the

Educators from page 1A knowledgement but recognized the serious side of education as well. “It’s a very tough job to be in education today,” said Sanchez. “It’s a very demanding job and it’s only going to get worse, but it’s an important and worthwhile job.” AUSD Executive Director Robin Schmitt agreed with Sanchez. “I’m humbled every day because I get to go to work and work with the people I do,” said Schmitt. “It’s the little things we do every day and it’s about the kids.” “It takes a community to do what we do,” said Edna Hill Principal Kristen Jobb. “And I am lucky enough to have people around me who are willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done – and I thank them for that.” Tom Wilson, coordinator of technology for the Brentwood Union School District, remembered a very different district when he first came to town more than a decade ago. “When I came to the district, my office was up a flight of stairs in the old hardware store,” laughed Wilson. “And I’m still known as the man upstairs.” Ken Jacopetti, Byron Union School

hoped for,” said Councilman Joel Bryant. In addition to the new website, a comprehensive marketing plan is being developed to spell out the city’s key selling points. They include proximity to the Bay Area, the Delta, the Tri-Valley area and the Central Valley, as well as the city’s fiscal strength, educated and available workforce, abundant housing, family-friendly community and business-friendly government. In addition to the website, the outreach will include newspaper articles, radio and TV stories plus magazine articles. An example, said Greenwood, is the fact that the current work to improve the downtown has landed the city on the cover of the San Francisco Business Times for the first time. More exposure through social networks such as Facebook and Twitter are also possibilities. Greenwood also hopes to build a continual presence for the city at trade shows and through broker tours in order to let people know about Brentwood. “One of the difficulties in helping people find out how special Brentwood is, is that we’re not even on their radar screen,” Greenwood said.

mation for the property. “This is exactly what we wanted,” Councilman Bob Brockman told Greenwood as the remaining council members nodded in agreement. The site is packed with useful infor-

White House, is booked solid. Vice Mayor Kevin Romick said the proposals seemed to lack an understanding of what the city was looking for, but Councilman Randy Pope believes the community might have a limited understanding of how to properly respond to a Request for Proposals (RFP) and suggested that the city or chamber of commerce offer some type of educational workshop to help local businesses and community organizations better understand the RFP process. While the RFPs were incomplete,

Romick said the city should not completely reject the proposals but rather work with the organizations to find areas of compromise. City Manager Bryan Montgomery agreed. With staff assistance, some of the proposals gain merit, but the buildings would be rented to the organization as a way to pay for the property’s utilities. “Having a tenant or two for office space or daycare or otherwise will help us pay the bills,” he said. “That is going to be the issue in whatever we determine here. So there may be an opportunity that these very applicants or others

will be able to use a portion to help us cover the utilities at the least.” HALO President Tamera Reed and EDYSL Director of Fields Zak Harris addressed the council, thanking staff for reviewing the proposals and looking forward to working with staff to create more acceptable proposals to present at the Strategic Planning meeting.

District superintendent, had “two shining stars to honor”: Vickey Corker, student services secretary, and Danielle Storey, vice principal at Excelsior Middle School and soon-to-be principal at Discovery Bay Elementary. “Vickey has served as my righthand person and she is such a team player,” said Jacopetti. “The staff at Bryon has inspired me so much,” said Storey. “I do believe it takes a village to do what we do, and Byron is my village.” Karen Clark was honored for her work as an elementary school principal in the Pittsburg Unified School District, and credited her recognition to her associates. “I really feel I got this award because I have a great, great team,” said Clark. “I want to thank everyone for this honor.” Debra Fogarty, assistant superintendent of Business Services for the Oakley Union School District, thanked the district and its staff for her award. “This is the best district I have ever worked with over the years,” said Fogarty. “There is not a better group of people anywhere. I just want to say thank-you to everyone.” And the Partner in Excellence Award

– given to a group or individual who contributes to education on a variety of levels – Lisa McBride, founder of the Special Kids Foundation, was this year’s honoree. “I’m really, really grateful for the honor,” said McBride, whose organization is dedicated to special-needs children and their families.

“It’s important to know that you (special-needs families) are not the only person in the world, and that’s why we’re here. Thank-you to all of you who support us and have continued to support us all these years.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

All you need are two magic words: recreational vehicle. Whether you use a motor home or a travel trailer, RVing is an economical form of travel. Let’s say you want to take a trip to Seattle. You’ll need to book a flight, rent a car, find a hotel and budget for meals before you even create your activities itinerary. If you take an RV, there are no flights, no hotels, no need to eat out, and you can bring your own car with you. Sure, the trip will take longer, but that’s part of the fun, according to Road Runner RV owner Scott Ylitalo. “When you travel in an RV, you get to appreciate the journey,” he said. “When you’re in a plane, you’re missing all of the nature and beauty.

arly in the year is a great time to evaluate your car insurance policy and look for ways to

save money. A few simple tweaks to your policy could help you find some extra savings you didn’t know were possible.

GO

Your local insurance agent can help you formulate the right policy. The experts at car insurance group Progressive offer these tips for chatting with your agent: ♦ Get the right amount of insurance. First, secure the insurance that’s required by the state. Next, ask your agent if you need physical damage coverage for your car. If you’re driving an older model, your car might be worth less than it would cost to insure. ♦ Check your roadside assistance coverage. If you’re a member of AAA, you likely don’t need to pay for roadside assistance on your car insurance policy. The same goes for rental car coverage: if you have access to an alternate form of transportation while your car is being repaired following a claim, you might not need to pay for that coverage. ♦ Ask your agent to shop around. Independent agents represent multiple insurance companies, so they can compare different companies and find the policy that’s right for you at the right price. ♦ Update your policy. As your life changes – marriage, children, new cars – check in with your agent. You can maximize your savings by taking advantage of available discounts. To learn more, talk to a local agent. You can find one near you at www. progressiveagent.com. – Courtesy of StatePoint Media MEDA L LD AWARD

RV from page 2B your own schedule,” Ylitalo said. “There’s no line to get through security, no limit to the number of bags you take, and it’s just a more pleasant way to travel. You can pack your own food and supplies so you don’t have to go to a restaurant every day. And with an RV, you can take your pets with you, which is nice, since most hotels don’t allow animals.” While gas prices are daunting, Ylitalo suggests that RVers take advantage of local wonders such as Lake Tahoe or Santa Cruz. Plan a trip that involves just one day of driving and then enjoy the ambiance of your destination. Many state and national parks offer an array of activities for the whole family. And many RV parks are located near towns where there are museums, golf courses, movie theaters and other local attractions that you wouldn’t find otherwise. A little research is all that’s needed. For those new to the RV experience as well as veteran road-trip enthusiasts, Ylitalo offers an advice line, 800-644-7908, so that travelers can check in if they run in to trouble on the road.

But if current gas prices keep you off the road this summer, make sure to properly store your RV. Ylitalo recommends keeping the engine in good condition by installing a fuel stabilizer. Make sure to drain the water system, cover the tires, disconnect all gas appliances, switch off any battery-powered items and close the windows and blinds to avoid sun exposure. And cover the RV if possible to protect it from exterior damage. When you’re ready to return to the road, Ylitalo recommends a full maintenance check to make sure everything’s working. Road Runner RV’s crew has a 20-step inspection checklist to ensure safety and high performance.

even brakes can be done a little at a time. “That’s what’s good about choosing a mechanic to do all the work and service on your car,” said Bermudez. “I always recommend that people keep their car in one shop so that they can get to know and understand the car and be able to see whatever is wrong and let them know before they need a major repair. If you go to different places all the time, no one gets to know your car.” So if you’re shopping for a new service shop or mechanic, Bermudez recommends choosing someone with a solid reputation and a history of experience working on your particular model. Bermudez is a certified technician, as is his staff, and has experience working on domestic and Japanese cars as well as the high-end luxury cars. But in the end, you should feel comfortable with the auto shop you choose and confidence in your mechanic. “If a customer doesn’t have a good experience, then they won’t come back,” said Bermudez. “Once my customers come to me, they stay, and that’s because we are equipped to handle whatever they need. We do all our work here in the shop so we don’t have to send it out to other stores. “I love what I do and I believe it shows. When I fix a car and see the face of the customer and I know they’re happy and I can send them on the road safe and sound, then I know I’ve done a good job.” Bermudez’s Auto Service & Repair, located at 415 Beatrice Court in Brentwood, is open Mondays through Fridays from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For additional information, call 925-240-5466.

“All of my life I have loved cars,” said Bermudez. “When I lived in Costa Rica I worked on them every day, and I learned that if you keep the cars in good shape, they will last a long, long time.” Especially the high-end cars. And although some of the maintenance items such as oil changes (most luxury cars use synthetic oils, which are more expensive) and brakes and rotors cost a bit more (they need replacement more often because they can’t be refurbished), the end result is a car you can rely on for years to come. Bermudez utilizes a checklist of maintenance items designed to keep cars in tip-top shape. “What I recommend to my customers is an oil change every seven thousand miles for German cars; three thousand for the others,” said Bermudez. “Also, critical to me is a brake fluid flush every two years and a transmission flush every 60,000 miles or so.” Brake checkups are a little more subjective and depend upon how much the customer drives the vehicle and where. “Someone who drives on a flat surface most of the time will be able to go longer without replacing their brakes than someone who drives in, say, San Francisco up and down the hills all day,” said Bermudez. “But the best thing to do is have your brakes checked when you have the oil changed. That should be something you do every time.” And the good news, said Bermudez, is that even for customers feeling the economic pinch, tune-ups and maintenance work don’t need to be done all at once. Items such as oilchanges, spark plugs, transmission work and

and repairing a major problem such as a faulty oxygen sensor could improve efficiency by up to 40 percent, according the U.S. Department of Energy. Especially if you’re a do-it-yourselfer, you could quickly recoup the cost of an oxygen sensor or other repair after as little as one tank of gas through improved fuel economy. ♦ Keep your tires properly inflated. Maintaining optimal tire pressure not only keeps you safer, but can improve your gas mileage by up to 3.3 percent, according to the Department of Energy. Your owner’s manual should tell you the proper PSI (pounds per square inch) levels for your vehicle. ♦ Drive for optimal gas mileage. How you drive can affect how much gas you use. Most cars run at peak efficiency at around 60 mph. Fuel economy decreases sharply when you drive faster. Aggressive driving and rapid acceleration/ deceleration also lower fuel economy. ♦ Reduce weight and drag. Getting rid of items such as roof equipment when they aren’t being used can help your car become more aerodynamic and run more efficiently. Keeping unnecessary items in your car, especially if they’re heavy, can also make your car work harder and use more fuel than it needs to. By adding up the small savings gained by each of these tips, you can save money at the pump, especially over a long period of time. – Courtesy of ARA Content

While buying a more fuel-efficient car might be an option for some, new and used cars that get more miles per gallon tend to be more in demand – and more expensive – when gas prices are high. If a new car isn’t an option for you, implementing the following changes can help you get the most from the fuel in your gas tank: ♦ Keep the gas you buy in your car. When gas prices are low, stealing gas would likely be more trouble than it’s worth, but when prices are high, it’s not uncommon for thieves to siphon gas from vehicles, especially those with larger tanks. Adding a locking gas cap can be done for much less than the cost of a tank of gas. In addition to preventing theft, locking fuel tank caps can also prevent anyone from tampering with your gas tank. ♦ Keep your tank full. While you’re looking to reduce the amount of gasoline you’re using, constantly running your car with the tank close to empty can wear down your fuel pump. “The gasoline in the tank keeps the fuel pump cool,” says Tom Taylor, engineer and vice president of RockAuto.com. “Take away the gas and the fuel pump runs hot and has a shorter life.” If you drive an older car that has accumulated dirt and rust at the bottom of the tank, keeping a full tank can help your fuel burn cleaner. ♦ Keep your car in shape. Keeping your engine properly tuned improves fuel efficiency by an average of 4 percent,

OBITUARIES Leon Felix Stemler Former Brentwood resident Leon Felix Stemler, 28, passed away on Thursday, March 17 after complications with cancer. Leon attended Liberty High School. He is survived by his mother, Ginny Stemler of Brentwood, and a sister, Issa Stemler of Humboldt. Funeral arrangements are being made by the Brentwood Funeral Home. Elizabeth “Betty” Ham Betty passed peacefully from this life from natural causes on March 16, just a couple of months before her 84th birthday. Betty was born in Leavenworth, Kan. on May 8, 1927 and was chosen by Thomas and Mabel (Latenser) Brashay to be their daughter to

raise and love. She attended Paseo High School in Kansas City, Mo. and a couple of years ago she had a wonderful time attending a reunion with old school friends in Kansas City. She was a wonderful mother to her three daughters, involved in every aspect of their lives through school, Girl Scouts, as a PTA president and in after-school activities, all the while holding down jobs outside the home – part-time while the children were young and full-time as they got older – mostly in the medical field. Betty was an active life member of the VFW Ladies Auxiliary, holding the office of historian and patriotic instructor for many years. She was a strong supporter of U.S. soldiers serving overseas.

She loved to travel, and was fortunate to see almost every state in the union, plus many parts of the world, including Europe, Japan, Egypt and Russia. She was always ready to take in a movie or enjoy a good meal in the company of her friends or family. She loved boating, fishing, trailer camping and tending to HAM her flower and vegetable garden, paying special attention to her many roses. She truly loved animals of all kinds and had a special place in her heart for her “grand dogs.” Her silver miniature poodle was her constant and much-loved companion. Many years ago, her birth family was sought and found. She was so very happy to find three living sisters, a brother and many nieces and nephews. She has enjoyed a wonderful relationship with them, visiting their homes in Missouri and having them visit in California. Upon her passing, she has left a loving family of three daughters: Jan (Bob) Rix, Leslie (Tom) Brady, and Kim (Carl) Gondolf; three granddaughters: Deborah (Rick) Day, Elizabeth (Ryan) Hodgson and Allison (Shawn) Lawrence; six great-grandchildren: Elizabeth, Rebecca, Bobby, Jack, Natalie and Zachary; and three sisters: Bonnie Collier, Wanda Schondelmeyer and Lore-

na (Tommy) Hess, all living in Missouri. Her brother Howard Mizer died in 2007. She was loved every day of her life and will be missed every day for years and years to come. Per her request, there will be no funeral or memorial services. Any donations to the VFW Ladies Auxiliary would certainly please her, and may be sent to VFW Ladies Auxiliary, c/o Agnes Perkins, 3660 Walnut Blvd. #52, Brentwood, CA 94513. Her daughters cannot express enough their heartfelt thanks to the staff at Lone Tree Convalescent Hospital in Antioch. James G. Landry May 22, 1944-Feb. 9, 2011 James was born in New Orleans, La. to Edward and Gladys Landry. He passed away peacefully on Feb. 9, 2011 due to heart-related illness. A retired mechanic, James was an avid fisherman who loved the outdoors and just being out on the water. He loved music and was gifted with the ability to play any instrument he picked up. He also worked as a chef for several years in the San Francisco area. James served six years in Vietnam, where he received the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal with Devices and the Vietnam Service Medal. A Celebration of Life, including full honors. was held on March 18. James was loved by many and will be missed dearly. In lieu of flowers. donations may be made to www.fullhonor.com.
