Council OKs benefits deal by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

The Oakley City Council unanimously voted Tuesday to enter a community-benefits agreement with Contra Costa Generating Station, LLC even though the California Energy Commission isn’t expected to making its ruling about the proposed power plant until next year. If the CEC approves the construction of the power plant, which is to be located on 22 acres of the former DuPont property on Bridgehead Road, the community benefits agreement established between the city and CCGS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Radback Energy, Inc., states that CCGS will contribute approximately $6 million to the city to help fund capital improvement projects and establish a grant program to benefit local nonprofit organizations.

Under the agreement, CCGS will contribute $3 million for various transportation, landscaping and infrastructure improvements throughout the city. In the agreement, CCGS also commits to pay $2.8 million that will go toward potential environmental improvements. The community benefits agreement will also establish a $250,000 grant program that will benefit local nonprofits that serve Oakley. Potential candidates for these funds include La Clinia, which is scheduled to open in June, 4-H, and Friends of Marsh Creek. City Manager Bryan Montgomery said the community-benefits agreement is the result of hours of hard work, analysis and negotiation that also resulted in CCGS contributing $175,000 to pay for the city’s retainer fees for consultants and legal counsel that have been hired by the city to help City Coun-

High-tech transit proposed for East County by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

When eBART was initially proposed in 2000, transportation officials envisioned that by 2010 there would be light-rail, diesel-powered trains traveling 23 miles from the Bay Point BART Station to Byron, stopping at stations along the way in Pittsburg, Antioch, Oakley and Brentwood. Unfortunately, the most that will be happening this year is construction of an eBART transfer platform at the Bay Point BART Station. The $500 million project was delayed and scaled back a couple years ago when Union Pacific Railroad refused to allow eBART trains to travel on its Mococo Line through far East County. Without access to an existing track, officials

better mass transit alternative that would reach Oakley, Brentwood, Byron and possibly Discovery Bay for the same cost as it would take to get eBART just to Antioch. CyberTran International officials have been making presentations to East County leaders touting an innovative system with smaller, lighter, electric-powered, computer-controlled cars that don’t need drivers. The cars, which hold 24 passengers, can be accessed like an elevator: you push a button and go straight to your destination without stopping at stations along the way. And it promises to provide many more stations, perhaps one every mile or two. Because the cars are so much lighter (about one-tenth the weight of light rail), CyberTran’s construction cost could be as little

Investigating East County’s unknown by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Most people like to kick back on Friday evenings and welcome the weekend, but for the investigators of Delta Diablo Paranormal, it’s time to get down to business. Armed with infrared cameras, electromagnetic field detectors, night-vision goggles, high-definition video cameras, digital voice recorders and their channeled sixth senses, the crew of DDP stalk through the night investigating locations of suspected paranormal activity in East County. Lead investigators Irene Ritchie and Raquel Rangel have been going on ghost hunts for years, exploring California haunts such as the Queen Mary Hotel in Long Beach and the Preston Castle in Ione in search of physical evidence that ghosts exist. “I’ve always been interested with the paranormal and urban legends involving spirits,” Ritchie said. “I’ve had this curiosity all my life.” Ritchie said at age 3 she encountered a spirit in the form of an old man with long white hair and talon-like fingers, who tormented her for several months by following her around the house, aggressively asking if she wanted to play. Similarly, Rangel, Ritchie’s cousin, was visited by the spirit of an elderly man

Oakley group aids family of homicide victim by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

A community organization is helping to defray funeral expenses for the family of a young Oakley woman killed last week during a domestic dispute. The Friends of Oakley donated $900 to the family of Elizabeth Reyes after learning of the family’s financial difficulties. “We heard that the family was experiencing a shortfall in completing the funeral arrangements, so we wanted to step up and help,” said Jim Frazier, a member of the nonprofit organization. “That’s what a community foundation is for, and we were glad to be of assistance.” Reyes, 21, was found dead in her home on Pheasant Way in Oakley on March 17.

The 21-year-old father of Reyes’ two young children has been formally charged with the murder and is being held on $1 million bail at the Contra Costa County Jail in Martinez. Authorities say Francisco Ayala-Lares called the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s dispatch around 4:30 p.m. on March 17 and admitted to involvement in an altercation at Reyes’ residence. Deputy Sheriffs picked up Ayala-Lares on the 400 block of West Fourth Street in Antioch and transported him to the Martinez Detention Facility, where he was booked on homicide charges. “Obviously it’s very sad,” said Oakley Police Chief Chris Thorsen. “There were obvious signs of blunt-force trauma and it

appears at this point that it was a domestic dispute. There was an altercation; he (Ayala-Lares) left the house and then called the dispatchers. A short time later he turned himself into the police.” The homicide is Oakley’s first since 2006. The couple’s two children, ages 2 and 11 months, are being cared for by Child and Family Services personnel. Those with information regarding this case should call the Office of the Sheriff at 925-646-2441.

Construction to close State Route 4 The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will initiate a full closure of eastbound and westbound State Route 4 (SR-4) 1.1 miles east of the Old River Bridge beginning Friday, March 26 at 8 p.m. and ending Monday, March 29 at 4 a.m. Caltrans will perform one-way traffic control along this stretch from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, March 23 through Friday, March 26. Crews will replace a culvert in this location. The work schedule is subject to change based on weather conditions.

For the westbound SR-4 detour, go southbound on Interstate 5 (I-5) (Los Angeles); merge onto westbound I-205 to (San Francisco/Oakland); merge onto northbound I-680 to (San Ramon/Walnut Creek); and merge onto eastbound SR-4 to (Pittsburg/ Antioch). For the eastbound SR-4 detour, go north on SR-160 (Isleton); eastbound on SR12 (Lodi); southbound on I-5; and continue south to SR-4. Since canals bracket the roadway on

each side, the full highway closure is necessary to ensure the safety of motorists and workers in the area. Alternate routes should be taken. The contractor for the $400,000 project is Teichert Construction of Turlock. The SR4 Culvert Replacement Project is necessary to ensure continued mobility and the movement of goods and services along this heavily traveled corridor. For the safety of workers and other motorists, motorists must Slow For the Cone Zone.

Hopping for Jerry’s Kids On March 4 and 5, children from Childhaven Preschool in Brentwood were all giggles and cheers as they participated in the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s annual Hop-a-Thon benefiting “Jerry’s Kids” suffering from neuromuscular disease. Childhaven has been participating in the program for the past 10 years and is committed to spreading disability awareness and community acceptance. Hop-a-Thon is part of MDA’s national disability awareness initiative organized by childcare centers and schools across the nation. The Hop-a-Thon curriculum, provided free-of-charge by MDA, includes five lesson plans focused on educating children about people living with disabilities. Additionally, children and their parents collect pledges and donations based on the number of hops each child completes during a two-minute period.

Proceeds from the event will fund neuromuscular research, provide support for adults and children with neuromuscular disease and give MDA’s young clients the opportunity to attend MDA Summer Camp at Camp Westminster Woods in Occidental, Calif. The efforts of the students from Childhaven Preschool are shared by thousands of other children participating in the East Bay. MDA is a voluntary health agency working to defeat neuromuscular disease through programs of worldwide research, comprehensive services and far-reaching professional and public health education. In addition to funding groundbreaking research, MDA maintains more than 230 clinics nationwide, including clinics at UCSF and the Stanford Medical Center. – Contributed by Laura Firpo

while your clothes and furniture are definitely personal property that you can take with you. But will the lender really pursue the homeowner after the fact? It is possible they might. I sure wouldn’t want to be the “test case” where a lender hires the big-gun attorneys to make me an example to deter other homeowners from doing the same thing. In extreme cases, they may be able to pierce the anti-deficiency provisions of trustee sales and come after you for any deficiency, so this could get really ugly. Also, if the lender files a claim with your insurance company and they pay a claim based on your intentional destructive act, then your insurance company could also come after you. (Remember that your lender is already listed as a loss payee on your policy, so this is not some far-fetched idea.)

We’ve all seen or heard of those homes where just before the foreclosure, all the appliances, fans, window coverings, doors, plumbing fixtures, etc. are removed. It is a common conversation we have in real estate nowadays (usually at an elevated tone of voice while standing in a driveway next to a truck full of appliances…). Within most standard mortgage documents, there is a clause that is relevant to this situation. When you sign that legal document you are promising to keep the property in good condition, working order and repair, and not to remove, destroy or suffer the removal or destruction of any improvements or fixtures and not to commit or permit waste. So if your deed of trust has this language, you have a contractual obligation to your lender to NOT remove fixtures, and also to not allow the property to be damaged. A “fixture” is something that is attached to the property, and is meant to go with the property. Personal property is everything else. That means your built-in stove and HVAC system are definitely fixtures that should stay,

Unknown from page 4A inquiry, and officially began home investigations this month. “When you have a paranormal experience, you don’t know what to think,” Rangel said. “You might think you are imagining things, but if it is persistent, then you might think you’re going crazy, so we offer this service to give people peace of mind. Maybe you have some type of activity going on in your house – or maybe there’s a raccoon in your attic.” DDP services are free of charge, and residents don’t need to stay in the house while investigations are conducted if they don’t feel comfortable, but Ritchie said some people are interested in the process. So far, the DDP team has conducted investigations in the homes of friends and family, but is willing to travel anywhere on the west coast if it offers a chance to scientifically document the existence of spirits. DDP historian Patty Herrera, also a cousin of Ritchie and Rangel, is a novice to ghost investigations, but once Ritchie and Rangel found out that Herrera had been visited by a deceased uncle, Rangel’s father, in her dreams, they knew Herrera was a perfect fit for the team. Herrera said Rangel’s father periodically visits her in her sleep just to say hi and check in. During one of his visits, he told Herrera not to worry about her brother, which made no sense to Herrera at the time. But the following morning, Herrera awoke to news reports of a shooting at the New York New York casino in Las Vegas, where her brother was staying. While her parents, unable to reach their son, were worried, Herrera heeded the words of her uncle and knew that her brother was OK. “I can’t explain it,” Herrera said. “I’m not sure why he visits me, but he stops by and has conversations with me. It’s not scary. I talk to him just as I would talk to anyone face to face and then he goes off. Not sure where he goes, but he always seems to come back.” Herrera said as a researcher she’s learned about a lot of suspected paranormal activity in East County, particularly in Antioch. One of the most common legends is the story of the white witch of Black Diamond Mines. It’s believed that the spirit of Sarah Norton, a midwife who lived in the Antioch area during the 1870s, haunts the Rose Hill Cemetery, where she was buried against her will. Norton, who died in a horse carriage crash, had told her children that she didn’t want to have a formal service if anything were to happen to her, but since Norton was such an important member of the community, the townspeople insisted on a public service. Despite two attempts to hold a service, which were canceled due to violent rainstorms, the people decided to stick it out during the third storm and hold the funeral. Since the town went against her wishes, people believe the vision of white light, described as a gliding woman, who has been seen floating among

the headstones at the cemetery, belongs to Norton. Herrera said Antioch, as one of California’s oldest cities, is a hotspot for other paranormal activity. Other sites of suspected activity include the El Campanil Theatre and the slaughterhouse on Empire Mine Road. Also in East County, the Byron Hot Springs is allegedly a haunt for local spirits. The DDP team, which consists of 10 investigators, hasn’t found any evidence of spirits since purchasing the new equipment, but plans to go on investigations each weekend, whether at residences or public places. Ritchie said she’d love to spend a night in the Stanley Hotel, the location that inspired

Stephen King’s “The Shining,” while Rangel would like to spend an evening at Alcatraz. Herrera said she’d like to visit the Island of the Dolls in Mexico. However, the main purpose of DDP is to help explain unusual occurrences and help people who believe they might be haunted understand what’s behind the inexplicable incidents. If a presence is detected, DDP also provides a free house cleansing service, which involves communicating with the spirit, asking it to leave, and blessing the house. Ritchie advised that if you suspect paranormal activity, telltale signs include cold spots, flickering lights, doors that open, close and lock on their own, items falling off shelves and tables,

whispers or voices, plus knocking, tapping and footsteps. “Sometimes things happen that people can’t explain, and if you go online looking for answers, there aren’t a lot of services in California to help people if they suspect they’ve had a paranormal experience,” Ritchie said. “We want to help people find peace of mind. Maybe it’s just your imagination or maybe it’s something else. Either way, we want to help people find answers.” For more information or to schedule an appointment with DDP, visit www.deltadiabloparanormal.com. To comment, visit www.thepress. net.

In Memoriam Margaret R. Vasquez March 29, 1948-July 9, 2009 arch 29 is a very special day for you Margaret … It’s your birthday and a celebration of your life! You know, even though we are given many precious gifts as we go through life, some we are allowed to enjoy for a long time and others only briefly. You turned your back on us when you heard the “Master” call, not knowing you took a big part of us; all hopes and dreams gone in too brief of a lifetime. You followed the path that the “Master” laid out for you. He chose you on purpose for a purpose! He knew you had that unique taste for music and had the best country, corridos and oldies. Margie, you are not too far away – you’re just across the way! Until we meet again, Happy Birthday! Missing you, Grace

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

A Moral Dilemma Before diving too deep into this subject, let us make it very clear that I am not suggesting, or leaning one way or another, rather, simply supplying information. And when I say “information” I do not mean legal advice – please CONSULT WITH A BANKRUPTCY SPECIALIST AND TAX ADVISER as this IS NOT INTENDED TO BE A PRIMER ON HOW TO AVOID YOUR DEBTS AND LOAN LIABILITY. So with that disclaimer, let’s get right into the thick of things and touch base on California’s anti-deficiency law - a law that originated during the Depression years to protect the banks, but is now doing just the opposite due to the rampant greed that kept them (the banks) from acting rationally in their own self-interest. You see California, as well as a handful of other states, have laws in place that allow a homeowner to simply walk away from their residence while not being held financially responsible for the debt they washed their hands clean of. In other words California has become the poster child for the “buy-and-bail” syndrome. As the numbers reflect, currently in California one out of every 204 loans has defaulted, many of you have either already had to, or will be, dealing with the moral dilemma of either letting your property go, or, according to Mr. Henry Paulson, “doing the right thing” and bleeding out your life-savings, IRA and credit card balances just to hold onto your house. Again, I’m not suggesting one way or another but let us be realists and come to grips with two very important facts when making any large financial decisions. First, it seems the only time we hear a finger-wagging lecture regarding money with content such as you “should”, or you “ought to”, is when it may be in your best interest to do the opposite; and second, the market will never function on

moral obligations alone…this is capitalism, and money should work. Obviously though, right now, money is not working, and not working on an extreme level which has caused Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to actually rework their foreclosure policies in order to deal with the difficult times we find ourselves in. These changes will have a direct bearing on the period of time from which you file for foreclosure until you can once again purchase a home: Situation Bankruptcy (All except Chapter 13)

Bottom line, if you are in agony over a pending decision to walk away from your home, please remember, your moral obligation is not to Paulson or your lender, nor is there any patriotic duty to bankrupt yourself to benefit others.

Reservoir environmental reports released The Bureau of Reclamation and the Contra Costa Water District (CCWD) have released the Final Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) for the Los

Vaqueros Reservoir Expansion Project. The purpose of expanding Los Vaqueros Reservoir is to develop reliable dry-year water supplies, provide additional water quality improvement

Dangers of Spring : “Now that the weather is warmer, I want to take my dog out for more walks. Is this safe?’

Q A

: There are many seasonal dangers associated with Spring. Here are just a few…

Foxtails - A foxtail is a cluster of grass used to disperse seeds from the original plant. They are spear shaped with tiny barbs and as such have a strong propensity to migrate forward and not back out once it has penetrated tissue. For most of our canine patients this becomes troublesome once in the paw, inhaled in the nose or found in the ear canal. If your dog has been on a walk recently or out in the yard and comes in shaking his/her head, sneezing repeatedly and pawing at his nose, or limping he may have a foxtail. Cats often get foxtails in their eyes while poking around in bushes. Cats will often squint one eye when they have a foxtail behind their eyelid. All of these problems warrant a visit to the veterinarian right away. Rattlesnakes – Spring is rattlesnake season. Rattlesnakes are just beginning to emerge from their nests. Vaccinating against rattlesnakes does not prevent the need for medical treatment if they are bit, but does increase their chances of a full recovery.

External Parasites – The days are longer, the temperatures are rising, and parasites such as fleas, ticks and mosquitoes are out in force. These parasites thrive in temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees, so we have the perfect climate! We are all familiar with fleas and how annoying they can be to our pets and our families. Ticks and mosquitoes also pose additional health concerns with heartworms and many tick-borne diseases such as lyme disease. All pets should be protected from these parasites with monthly parasite treatments. Avoid over the counter flea medications purchased at grocery stores and drug stores as they can be very dangerous if applied incorrectly. Internal Parasites – Because many of us walk our dogs more in the Spring and Summer, internal parasites are more of a problem as well. Many of the internal parasites we see have the potential to be transmitted to humans so treating and preventing them is a concern for all of us. Pets should be tested annually for internal parasites and kept on a monthly preventative throughout the year. Be sure your pets are fully protected against the many dangers that are prevalent in the Spring. If you have additional questions, please call us at 925-634-1177. – Advertisement

for CCWD municipal and industrial customers, and provide additional emergency water supply for the San Francisco Bay Area. The EIS/EIR provides an environmental analysis of the proposed expansion of the existing reservoir from 100,000 acre feet to 160,000 acre feet and alternatives to 275,000 acre-feet. The Final EIS/EIR is the basis for decision-making for the federal, state, and local agencies. Reclamation will prepare a Record of Decision (ROD) following a 30-day notice of the publication of the Final EIS/EIR. The ROD will identify the decision and discuss the relevant factors considered. The CCWD Board of Directors is scheduled to consider certification of the Final EIR and project approval at a public meeting on Wednesday, March 31. If the board certifies the Final EIR and approves the project, CCWD will publish a Notice of Determination (NOD) on April 1 and file the NOD with the Contra Costa County Clerk and the State Clearinghouse. “Reclamation is very pleased to be part of the Los Vaqueros Reservoir Expansion Project – the first surface storage expansion project to move forward under the CALFED BayDelta Authorization Act of 2004,” said Donald R. Glaser, regional director of the Bureau of Reclamation’s Mid-Pacific

region. “Expanding Los Vaqueros will be instrumental in improving dryyear water supply reliability and water quality in the San Francisco Bay area. Reclamation and CCWD are committed to continue working with the State of California, water users, environmental groups and all other stakeholders involved in the Bay-Delta Conservation Planning process and additional storage studies.” The Los Vaqueros Reservoir expansion is one of five potential surface-water storage projects identified in the CALFED Storage Program and the CALFED Bay-Delta Program’s Programmatic Record of Decision, dated August of 2000. The CALFED Bay-Delta Program is a 30-year program (2000-2030) based on four major resource-management objectives that guide actions designed to achieve a healthy ecosystem while supplying 25 million Californians with a reliable water supply. The objectives are ecosystem restoration, water supply reliability, water quality and levee system integrity. Reclamation plays a key role as the federal lead agency for implementing water-supply reliability actions in coordination with state and local partner agencies. The Final EIS/EIR is available at www.usbr.gov/mp/nepa/nepa_ projdetails.cfm?project_id=903.

Benefits from page 1A I feel Radback gave more than they intended and we didn’t get everything that we wanted, but that’s how good solid negotiations take place and we recommend approval.” Vice Mayor Jim Frazier said he liked the benefits of the agreement but proposed the council ask CCGS to contribute $500,000 to the grant program. When Councilmember Kevin Romick asked where the additional $250,000 was going to come from, Frazier said it could come out of the capital-improvements contribution. Montgomery reaffirmed that the offer was finite and funds could be substituted, but the council was not recommended to ask for more than what was offered. Councilmember Bruce Connelley agreed that after hours of negotiations, the council should accept the agreement as is and suggested additional partners for the grant program could be found at a later date. Radback CEO Bryan Bertacchi agreed that this was a good offer for the city and urged the council to approve the agreement, offering to find additional partners to support the grant program. Mayor Pat Anderson was pleased to hear that Radback would help the city find additional partners for the grant program, as she too was hoping to offer community organizations more than $250,000. Bertacchi said in a press release that the community-benefit agreement represents CCGS’s commitment to Oakley. “We believe it was important to help provide direct services to Oakley residents based on community needs. That’s how we ended up with the community grant program. That program, along with the other important investments in the

COMMUNITY

city, will directly benefit Oakley residents for years to come.” However, while the council received 20 testimonials from residents who supported the agreement, some members of the public disagreed with the agreement and the proposed plant. In a message to the City Council, resident Eve Diamond wrote: “The CCGS estimates that ‘as much as 6 million dollars in one-time sales tax may come to the city as a result of the project.’ The cooperative word is may, and it might as well say ‘possibly, but hardly likely.’ Selling out its residents’ air quality for money is, in my opinion, no different than prostitution. When will the city wake up and listen to its residents instead of the almighty dollar?” The comment drew whispers from the standing room only crowd of more than 120 people, as did the comments made by resident Paul Seger, who has openly opposed the project since it was publicly announced last year. Despite the opposition, the majority of those in attendance were in favor of the power plant and the community-benefits agreement. Oakley Chamber of Commerce President Steven Nosanchuck said Oakley’s community organizations are experiencing a funding void due to the recession, and the grant program established in the community benefit agreement is needed now more than ever. “I think this community grant program will help create an official body and mechanism where people can present their good ideas and get some much-needed guidance and support, which in the long run, will benefit our community.” Although the council has no say in whether or not the power plant is approved by

the CEC, many speakers at Tuesday’s meeting voiced their support of the plant. Mayor Anderson encouraged speakers to discuss only the community benefits agreement, but most speakers simply wanted to reiterate their desire to draw a large local project to town that would generate hundred of jobs. Whether residents support or oppose the project, Councilmember Carol Rios urged those in attendance to forward their com-

Transit from page 1A as $25 million/mile, which is half the cost per mile of eBART and a fraction of the $200 million per mile of BART. Officials from CyberTran, which is short for cybernetic transportation, brought their proposal to the East County transportation board Transplan a couple months ago, to the Antioch City Council on March 9 and to the Oakley City Council on Tuesday. They are seeking letters of support, and have already received a couple dozen from federal and state leaders as well as the city of Richmond, with which they are partnering to test and develop the technology. The system has yet to be tried and proven in a real-world implementation. The company is looking to do a one-to-two-mile demonstration project with the help of federal funding, and plans to roll out a commercial system in about three years. “Somewhere in the Bay Area there will be a first system,” said Neil Sinclair, CEO and chairman of the board of CyberTran, which is based in Oakland. “Everyone wants to be second (after it’s been proven). There’s a real logjam in the way of

I think there are benefits for this region, for sure, that can come out of this.” Some East County officials are receptive. “I thought it was rather intriguing,” said Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor, who represents the city on Transplan. “Obviously, the door is open probably for any type of affordable transit that is possible. Obviously, there’s a tremendous amount of details to be worked out on it, et cetera. But it could be a long time before we have BART out here, so it could be an alternative.” Taylor said that at this point he sees CyberTran as more of an add-on to eBART rather than a replacement for it. “But you have to leave all doors open right now,” he said. “A lot of it has to do with economics, what are the pros and cons.” Antioch Councilwoman Mary Rocha said, “It sounds very promising, and it sounds very good.” On Tuesday night the Oakley City Council agreed to send a letter of support for the proposal.

Measure F: Locals seeking local control We wanted to take this opportunity to thank the more than 5,200 Brentwood neighbors who recently signed the initiative that would give Brentwood control over our property. We are proud of the proposal and were so gratified that so many people came to the conclusion that we have UEST known for a long COMMENT time. That is that Brentwood is the right agency to decide what happens with our property. We believe in Brentwood, are fortunate to be a part of this community, and have written this measure so that everyone can benefit from it. Much of this stems from the fact that we have owned our land, on average, for more than 20 years each.

G

The initiative is moving forward. The City Council has determined that all of the necessary steps had been done properly and placed the initiative on the June 8 ballot. The council acted after staff presented the fiscal impact report. Should the initiative succeed and be fully implemented, staff found a direct influx of $60 million to the city over time. Also, there would be an annual net surplus of $800,000 for the city to use on a variety of needed services including parks, police and roadways. We’re proud to do more than pay our own way. If you’d like to see the discussion of the initiative, please go to www.ci.brentwood. ca.us and look for the video of the March 9 meeting. We just learned that the initiative will be called Measure F. We hope you’ll take the time to learn more about Measure F

LETTERS Pennies for Peace a wise investment Editor: Everybody should donate money to Pennies for Peace. The first reason is to help kids in Pakistan and Afghanistan grow up and have a good education. The second reason is so all kids can grow up and have a good life. I know some people don’t want to give money to Pennies for Peace because Muslims were responsible for 9/11, and most people in Pakistan and Afghanistan are Muslims, but they aren’t all bad. They are people just like you and I. All children need an education. If everyone around the world didn’t have an education, people are not going to know how to read or do math. People won’t be able to get a job because they don’t have any skills. These people can lose hope and turn to terrorism as a way out. Kids around the world should grow up and have a good life. If kids don’t get an education, they have to depend on their parents to do everything for them. If they go and have kids, their children will rely on them

and its many elements, which are designed to help make Brentwood an even better place to live, work and raise a family. Within the next week, our Web site will be available at www.putbrentwoodincontrol.com. Briefly, Measure F would establish Brentwood’s own Urban Limit Line. This would put the Brentwood council and city voters in control not only of our land but the perimeter of the entire city. Neither the county nor any other neighboring city should make these decisions for us. Only the people of Brentwood can fairly determine what is in their best interests, not outsiders, however well-intentioned they might be. Additionally, Measure F would rezone our land and potentially allow the city to permit a low-density project. If this happens, Measure F would create new local

We don’t even know them.” I’ll tell you why we should give money to them. Just because Muslims were responsible for 9/11 doesn’t mean that we can’t donate some money.

Community can slow down teen crime Editor: There is a current national problem that is affecting the young adults of America, especially in the minority communities. Teen crime is one of the biggest issues sweeping the nation in a negative way. In my community, I have witnessed so many crimes that were committed by young adults. Since 2005, crime has risen gradually. Minority teenagers have a bad rep in Antioch for committing crimes and making the community less safe. Antioch is getting dangerous. Walking the neighbor trails, I witness people getting harassed or drug transactions. Most of the time, the criminals are the teens or young adults. Recently an elementary classmate of mine was shot and killed over a song disagreement downloaded on an iPod. He was shot and killed at a local gas station by another teenager. Over the summer, a classmate who dropped out of Deer Valley High School allegedly killed someone at the local park. The crimes are usually committed by foster kids living in group homes, teens that dropped out of high school or people who come from

jobs, help our schools, improve Brentwood’s economy and enhance public safety. Taken together, these factors should also result in higher property values. We also commit ourselves to fixing Balfour Road and American Avenue around Heritage High School and Adams Middle School. Those of us who have been part of the community for many years know how important all of these things are to Brentwood. Along with the significant contributions to the city’s budget mentioned earlier, this is a package we hope you’ll see as beneficial for you and your family. Please direct any questions, concerns and comments to putbrentwoodincontrol@ yahoo.com. Lee Hancock, Mark Harris, Sean McCauley and John Wong Brentwood

high-crime communities. Many male minorities and teens are falling victim and end up as inmates in our overcrowded prisons. The community needs more organizations that provide job assistance, after-school programs and recovery centers. We need organized community activities and an organization that tries to help get people off the streets. There should be a paid community cleanup system that hires eligible teens and young adults to rebuild the community they live in. This kind of program would benefit the people of the community by creating a better-looking environment. I’m fully aware that teen crime can’t be eliminated; however, it can most definitively be slowed down. Darryl Malik Flaggs Antioch

Hazardous time for homeless students Editor: A recent article in your newspaper about homeless students has caught my attention. The population of homeless students in California between the preschool and 12th-grade levels has increased by more than 100,000 in the last three years. The federal government has attempted to address the issue with the 1987 McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, but according to Barbara Duffield, policy director of the National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth, this money only gets to about 9 percent of the nation’s school districts. I am also a student at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill and I find this information extremely tragic. I am also a resident of Antioch, and that Antioch Unified School District receives no federal subsidies for these homeless students is ridiculous. I applaud organizations like Shelter, Inc. for collaborating with the district to provide

students with some of the services that they need, but I do not believe this is enough. I urge other students in the public education system to speak up on behalf of their fellow students in need and volunteer to help them out in any way possible. Every child deserves a chance at a bright future. Brandon Spearman Antioch

Relay represents community resolve Editor: Cancer has been taking the lives of many people for many years now. Relay for Life in Brentwood is an important event to our community that allows survivors, fighters and people who are healthy to show their support and dedication to finding a cure. Unlike the Avon Walk for breast cancer, Relay for Life does not have a certain amount of money for each participant to raise, which lets more people attend. Every penny counts when it comes to the cause. People who attend Relay for Life agree that the Survivor’s Lap is worth all of the money, time and energy put into this event. Seeing their faces and their attitudes about being a survivor encourages more and more people to come out and participate, or continue participating in the years to come. Having family members die from, live with and survive with cancer makes me thankful for all the things people do to help support people like my family members fight their disease. I plan on joining Relay for Life with some friends who have walked before. The more people who attend and raise money for this cause, the closer we can be getting to finding a cure.

Letters from page 16A Voter initiative good for Brentwood Editor: As a resident of Shadow Lakes and having experienced the horrific day-to-day traffic coming from the opening of Adams Middle School, I am 100 percent in support of the voter initiative that will move the extension of American Avenue closer to reality. The development of Adams Middle School and Heritage High School were never intended to concentrate the sheer volume of students, parents and traffic into the city’s largest cul-de-sac. Subject to the voters will, in taking this next step forward, will come a long term due diligence and planning process to ensure that the results match the rhetoric. Following four years of sitting on the Planning Commission and having had the pleasure of working with our economic development staff, planning and department of public works, I am confident that the wishes of the citizens of Brentwood will be well served.

Vote McNerney out of Congress Editor: Well, ever heard of the term “Watch what you ask for; you just might get it”? When President Obama and Jerry McNerney were elected, the people wanted change – we went from bad to worse, and so much worse our grandkids will never be able to pay for it. People should know better: every time the government gets involved in anything, they just screw it up – they just can’t help themselves. Last time the government tried to regulate was in the ’70s. I remember my parents waiting in huge lines to get gas. Hope you’re ready for long waits to see a doctor; the latest poll showed 46 percent of doctors will leave their practice because of Obamacare. And thanks to our Congressman Jerry McNerney, a puppet for Pelosi, for voting for the bill. Well, fellow voters, they didn’t listen to the message when they lost Massachusetts, and shoved this bill down our throat – so let’s stick it up theirs in November and vote McNerney out of Congress.

Poor petition presentation Editor: This letter is in regard to your frontpage story entitled “Balfour Project heads for ballot,” about annexing 740 acres to the city’s southwest border; also known as the ULL issue. I want to inform you that a deception took place when I was asked to sign the petition that enabled this expansion. The petition that I signed was presented to me as “relieving city traffic congestion” or words very close to that. Period. I know I should have read the petition before signing, but I was loaded down with groceries, exiting a Safeway store, and I took the petitioner’s word for it. I now see it as a ruse, because the heart of the petition is about adding up to 1,300 new houses as well as commercial development. I would not have signed it had it been presented to me accurately. Now I wonder how many others, like me, thought they were signing a petition simply to relieve city traffic congestion, and if enough people would have even signed this petition to get it to the ballot had they been told the truth. It also leads me to wonder if the petitioners were paid to acquire these signatures, and if they were coached on how to present this important issue for signing. I am very disappointed and won’t be signing any more petitions. Carol McInerny Brentwood

Full disclosure expected Editor: The fourth high school Final EIR Report to Comments leaves much to be desired. I have read the Environmental Impact Report Response to Comments for the Liberty Union High School District’s proposed fourth high school. There are many comments and questions that were edited and/or omitted from this report. I find this completely unacceptable. The answers used are vague. I have talked with other local residents and agencies and all have seen the same thing. Their comments and questions were also edited or omitted. It is as if the district chose what to include or ignore, thus keeping many important concerns from the public. School district residents are concerned for the safety of our kids and are entitled to

read all comments and questions in their entirety. Over half of the question I asked concerning the safety of the railroad crossing on Sellers Avenue was left out. LUHSD’s response mentioned everything from widening Cypress Avenue to extending the Byron Highway, but never once is the Sellers Avenue railroad crossing mentioned. The Draft EIR, by contrast, does state that the railroad crossing would become unacceptable. The report also says that the Cypress Corridor lacked infrastructure to support a fourth high school campus, and ongoing lawsuits with the East Cypress Corridor Specific Plan EIR could significantly delay development within the corridor. There was no lawsuit when this site was selected and this should not be a reason for not building in the Cypress Corridor. Moreover, it’s ironic that the LUHSD brings up the matter of lawsuits in light of the fact that it’s currently being sued for elder abuse as well as for threatening the use of eminent domain to buy the property on Sellers Avenue for the new high school. This report is completely one-sided and neglects the district’s responsibility to address all concerns. I expect the LUHSD to do better. There is no doubt that the proposed school site at Delta Road and Sellers Avenue is the most unsafe and expensive site the LUHSD could have selected. This Final EIR was placed on the LUHSD Board meeting agenda for certification on March 10; then postponed. How ironic that this was the same night the school board made $3.2 million in budget cuts. I guess it wouldn’t have gone over very well telling parents that their kids would have larger classes, fewer teachers, counselors, librarians and, oh by the way, we are getting ready to ask you for another school bond to build another high school.

U.L.L. change increases problems Editor: Expanding the urban limit line in Brentwood is not needed and should be opposed. The justifications used to explain its necessity just do not add up.

houses and retail? Brentwood can’t fill the existing storefronts it already has. Brentwood already has approved housing developments that sit unfinished due to the economy but will be finished when the economy improves. And when will that be? Many experts say a strong economy is at least five to seven years away. So why expand the U.L.L? Brentwood is currently adding more housing and retail east of Brentwood Boulevard along the Sand Creek extension. How about all the empty retail stores that are already vacant throughout the city? Just how many more strip malls with empty storefronts does the city need? Be mindful of the empty storefronts in the downtown area. Why the rush to build more retail when Brentwood cannot fill the existing spaces? A report suggests expanding the U.L.L. will bring $800,000 per year tax revenue to the city. When the blight of empty stores, undersold homes and crime comes with it, Brentwood will spend far more than it takes in to fight the associated problems. Changing the U.L.L. will only add to the problems. More blight, more crime. Robert Walrond Brentwood

Sold on self-determination Editor: Thank you, Brentwood City Council, for allowing us to vote on the local control initiative. I signed the petition in January because we should decide what happens to our city, not outsiders. Some people think we need more growth to help get our economy going again. Some friends of mine say that growth is ultimately not a good thing. To me, regardless of where you stand on development, it is obvious that Brentwood’s voters and council should make decisions that effect Brentwood. In addition, safety for our students should be a priority for all. The ongoing traffic problems cause by the American Avenue cul-de-sac is an accident waiting to happen. Right now the Board of Supervisors and the voters of the whole county decide on our future. We have the right to make decisions for ourselves. I am voting Yes. Freeman L. Young Brentwood

DV volleyball sets sights on fourpeat by Dave Roberts Staff Writer When it comes to sports dynasties, several come to mind for most fans: Bill Russell’s Boston Celtics in the ’60s, Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls in the ’90s and the Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle New York Yankees in the ’20s, ’40s and ’50s. Perhaps it’s time to add to that hallowed pantheon Lou Panzella’s Deer Valley boys volleyball team, which went undefeated in league play last year and has won the BVAL championship three years in a row. Judging by their 3-1 league-opening victory over Freedom last week, Deer Valley could be a favorite to fourpeat this year. Asked about that possibility, Panzella said, “Talk to me in five weeks. I don’t know. Antioch is pretty good. Everybody is better, so we’ll see.” The Wolverines lost three of last year’s starters to graduation, but have three starters returning: Taylor Higgs, Jason Agopian and Kurt Kline. “Which is a nice place to start,” said Panzella. “With their experience – and they’re pretty good players – that should hopefully give our younger kids and less experienced players a little time to grow into what they have to do and where they have to be.” Two of the starters in the Freedom game were freshmen: opposite hitter Derrico Kwa and middle blocker Marcus Lee. Another starter, junior libero Brian Yi, has never played volleyball before. And Ago-

pian, a 6-foot-6-inch third-year starter, has never played outside hitter before. “So we’ve kind of shuffled the deck a little bit, and there’s going to be a learning curve for these guys,” said Panzella. That learning curve was evident in the first game against Freedom, which Deer Valley lost 13-25 due to numerous hitting and serving errors. But the Wolverines settled down after that, winning the next games 25-15, 25-17 and 25-19. “Hopefully, we’re going to be a lot better at the end of the year than we are now,”

said Panzella. “And I don’t think we are that bad now. I think we’re pretty good. When we control the ball and cut down on our mental errors, we’re pretty good. But we’re going to make those mental and physical errors – some because of inexperience, some because that’s part of the game; they make errors. I’m pleased with the way we picked up our play as the match went on. I was pleased that some of the newer guys got a few kills and made good plays for us.” Agopian led Deer Valley with 14 kills and nine digs, followed by Higgs’ 10 kills,

10 digs and nine aces. Kline made 30 assists and nine digs. Although Deer Valley volleyball could be on the verge of becoming Dynastic Valley volleyball, the last thing Panzella wants is his players resting on past laurels. He said he told his team “that’s ancient history. It means nothing. All it means is that everybody’s out gunning for us. So we are either up to the task and face that, or trip by the wayside. I think we’ll be up to the task. We’re hoping we are.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Antioch Speedway kicks off golden anniversary by Michael Dixon Correspondent East County racing fans of all ages packed the bleachers of the Antioch Speedway Saturday night for nearly four hours of racing action, marking the start of the 50th season of racing on the dirt track at the Antioch fairgrounds. Scott Sanchez of Oakley, who brought his 9-year-old son Keegan, has been going to the races for 15 years, though Saturday was the first time in 10 years he wasn’t sitting in the pits. “It’s just exciting,” he said. “I came out here when my wife got me a Father’s Day gift years ago and got to go in the pits after we were fans out here (in the bleachers). It’s something to do on Saturday nights, it keeps you out of trouble, and it’s fun and exciting.” Eric Lahrs of Pleasanton brought his two kids, Emily, 8, and Dylan, 10, for the third year in a row. “It’s a lot of fun to watch the cars, it’s good racing, it’s a good atmosphere,” he said.

“Last year was our first year” said James Borba of Brentwood. “I finally had someone to go with” as he pointed to his 4-year-old son, Owen. “I grew up on the Peninsula, and they don’t have racing down there. But it’s always been something that I wanted to watch. So I came out on the first week and came pretty much every week after that. It’s fun to watch, excitement the whole time, doesn’t get boring too often. It’s a good value for a long night out. You really get your money’s worth.” Several close races and the threat of a crash helps keep the races interesting, even if one racer appears to be dominant. A good lead can be quickly lost by a slight mishap on a turn. If a crash occurs behind the lead cars, the race is restarted and the second-place car is positioned right behind the first-place car, even if the leader had a significant lead. Until the winning car takes the checkered flag, anything can happen at any time. If you’re thinking of going, you

Antioch swim in another rebuilding year by Dave Roberts Staff Writer Although it wasn’t officially even spring yet, it definitely felt like “sumer is icumen in” (in the words of the Middle English song welcoming summer) on a warm, sunny afternoon at the Deer Valley High swim meet last Friday against Antioch and Pittsburg. It’s looking like another rebuilding year for the Antioch Panthers, which has only 12 swimmers, and as a result can’t field enough competitors in enough races to gain the points needed to win a meet. Antioch is 0-2 after losing the Deer Valley meet and after swimming uphill against Heritage two weeks earlier, both of which are able to provide a plethora of water racers and divers. Getting the Panthers up to speed has been an ongoing project for Coach Keri Miles, who took over three years ago when, she said, “the program was almost non-existent. We are trying to get it rebuilt – it takes a while. We have more swimmers than we did last year. It’s a slow process, but we are working on it.” Last year the Panthers fielded only nine swimmers. Adding to the challenge of being competitive this year is that Antioch is young, consisting mostly of freshmen and sophomores. On the plus side,

many of them have previous experience, having swum for the Antioch Delta Skimmers and the East County Stingrays. “We have a lot of really good swimmers,” said Miles. “They have a lot of potential – it’s just a matter of trying to get our numbers (of swimmers) back up.” Despite competing with just four varsity swimmers, the Lady Panthers managed to come in third last year in league competition, “which was really good,” said the coach. One of the better swimmers this year is senior Chris Tennow, who, Miles said, “is an incredible breast stroke swimmer and is working really hard to qualify for NCS (the North Coast Section championships). He may be two seconds away (from the qualifying time). We are working really hard to get him qualified.” As for many of the other swimmers, “They have a lot of potential,” said the coach. “I will give them another year, and I think they will surprise a lot of people. I think they will do really well in the coming years. I am really excited to have the kids that I do. I have an amazing assistant, Cali Robinson – she has coached with Antioch Delta Skimmers and has a lot of good ideas and is a good asset to the team.” To comment, visit www.thepress .net.

Freedom working out the kinks in loss by Michael Dixon Correspondent Freedom’s baseball team is still trying to find its form after last year’s NCS championship. In Friday’s home opener the Falcons were defeated 2-11 by an experienced Foothill team that in many ways resembles Freedom’s squad of 2009. The game was never significantly in doubt as Foothill plated four runs in the opening inning and scored at least one in all but one inning thereafter. While not pleased with the result, Freedom Manager Gary Alexander found some silver lining. “We played a lot of young players that showed that they aren’t afraid,” he said. “The bottom line is we are playing in preseason with a brand-new team and trying to figure some things out. And we definitely figured some things out today on what decisions we are going to make in the future. So that’s a positive.” Asked about what areas he wants to improve on, he said, “We just need to learn the game. We just made a lot of mistakes, and the only way to learn from them is to make them and learn from them. The learning curve is huge right now. All I can ask is that when something happens, that we learn from it so it

doesn’t happen again.” The mistakes were apparent throughout the game, although they mostly weren’t egregious: a few fielding errors, passed balls and wild pitches. But Freedom was also victimized by not making fundamental plays, particularly in the early going. Starting pitcher Ryan Petrangelo, one of the few seniors on the team, was forced into early jams when his team failed to cut off throws from the outfield when there was no play at the lead base, allowed Foothill runners to advance. This put extra pressure on Petrangelo, who was forced to pitch for strikeouts, as well as on the defense, which had to “play in” to prevent the lead runners from scoring. Offensively, Freedom was a victim of bad luck, recording only four hits despite making solid contact with numerous pitches – and smacking balls right at Foothill outfielders. Freedom’s star of the game was defensive ace shortstop Javier Carrillo, whose strong arm gunned down several speedy Foothill runners. Carrillo went two for three at the plate and drove in one of Freedom’s two runs, bringing home Bobby Cook on a fifth-inning single. The other run, which came in the same inning, was scored by Dylan Fakhimi on a

have hung on through the past three years of the Great Recession. The Cordua family goes back several generations in Brentwood – Daryn’s grandmother Eunice Castoro was a longtime secretary for the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce. According to Tonya, grandma once lived in the John Marsh House. Daryn and Tonya first met in fifth grade at Garin Elementary School, lost touch and reconnected 15 years ago, when Daryn was dating a friend of Tonya. They’ve been married 12 years and have three children. Daryn got his start in upholstery when he

In his spare time as a hobby, he did upholstery jobs in his garage for friends and family. “The hobby became bigger than the garage,â€? said Tonya. “We decided that maybe it’s time to go full bore with this.â€? They started out in a 1,500-square-foot space in the Brentwood Business Center, then moved to a space twice as large. Despite the economic slowdown, Daryn and Tonya have managed to stay in business by customizing hot rods every six weeks or so. They recently outďŹ tted the seats in ’58 Bel Air with a chevron pattern and an embroidered “Bel Airâ€? along with other customizations.

Some hot rod jobs can cost more than $7,000, depending on the vehicle, materials and work involved. “That’s the bread and butter of our business: customizing hot rods,� said Tonya. “It’s not a job that’s going to be rushed. It’s going to take time and energy if you want that special look. We have been fortunate enough to have quite a few hot rods through, and that’s what’s been keeping us going. Every hot rod is it’s own animal. Everyone’s vision is so different.� One of the newer trends is toward more exotic seat materials like ostrich and alligator skin, she said, adding, “I have never seen anybody do a complete seat in ostrich skin, but see Upholstery page 7B

new car with whatever features you need or want and adorn it with high-tech gizmos such as a communication, entertainment or navigation system. And then there’s the confidence you get from a full warranty and the lack of wear and tear to begin with. “Some people are just new-car people and others are just used-car people. There’s really no right or wrong answer,” said Steve Meister, general sales manager at new car dealership Bill Brandt Ford in Brentwood. “It’s really just a matter of what works best for each individual.” And what works best is having a plan, so prospective buyers should get their financial house in order before heading out to the dealership. Conventional wisdom says that a car payment should not exceed 20 percent of the buyer’s monthly income, so tally up your monthly expenses before you fall in love with

the car of your dreams. And don’t forget to figure in insurance and maintenance as well; owning a car is an expensive investment. “Most of our customers have done their homework on the Internet before they even walk in the door,” said Meister. “They’ve researched interest rates and rebates and in many cases they know more about the vehicle than the salespeople do. It’s just a very good idea to have your ducks in a row.” Still, there are advantages to be gained by going the pre-owned route. For years, the long-held belief was that buying a used car was taking on someone else’s problems, which was enough to keep many potential buyers off the used car lots. But not anymore, according to Steve Hambaugh, general manager of Why Buy New in see Wheels page 6B

Brentwood. “The fact is that the minute you drive off a lot with a new car, its value immediately depreciates by as much as 20 percent,” said Hambaugh, whose dealership specializes in pre-owned trucks, vans and SUVs. “There is no longer a stigma associated with buying a used car; people know it’s a good value and it makes good sense.” Used car buyers also have the advantage of more closely tailoring their budget to their vehicle. The price of a new car is established by the manufacturer and the invoice price that the dealer pays. But usedcar prices are more flexible, based as they are on considerations such as mileage, model year and overall condition. And thanks to the Internet, there’s also a way to help keep used-car surprises to a minimum. CARFAX is a nationwide computer database service that provides vehicle history reports. “CARFAX really is real, and if a salesman won’t show them to you, turn around and walk out the door,” said Hambaugh. “If (the dealer) is reputable, they’ll have the CARFAX – period.”

Whether you’re buying new or used, the key to remember is that you’re the one in charge. Both Hambaugh and Meister agree that a confident attitude – as well as working with a well-known, reputable dealer – can make the whole car-buying experience enjoyable. “The bottom line is that you’re the customer and you shouldn’t be put off by the salesperson or the whole scope of the operation,” said Meister. “For us (Bill Brandt Ford), the majority of our business is families and we are a family-run store, so when you come in with a price you want, we’re going to give you that price. We understand that your time is just as valuable as ours and we want you to be a customer for life.

Those on a budget opt to do one item at a time rather than having the whole interior redone. “The people who have money still spend money,” said Tonya. “The people who are struggling are doing things piece by piece, but are still coming in. We are still staying busy, which is nice.” Another recent development is that more people are customizing their golf cart seats, perhaps to match a new paint job or cover up wear and tear. “In the last year it’s been crazy – that’s been blowing up, which is nice,” said Tonya. “It means people are able to relax and

People of ancient times believed that the stabbing pain of a toothache was caused by a toothworm, which had either appeared spontaneously or had bored its way into the tooth. If the tooth pain was severe, it meant that the worm was thrashing about, but if the aching stopped, it was assumed the worm was resting. Cultures all over the world, many of which had no contact with each other, held stubbornly to this myth. The folklore of the toothworm persisted from ancient times to the beginning of the 18th century. Folk Cures • Bee: In the Middle Ages, honey was used

to coat an infected tooth. People smeared their aching teeth with honey and waited all night with tweezers in hand, ready to pluck out the toothworm. • Donkey: In ancient Greece, donkey’s milk was used as a mouthwash to strengthen the gums and teeth. • Frog: In addition to spitting in a frog’s mouth for toothache relief, these webfooted creatures were applied to a person’s cheek or to the head on the side of the ailing tooth. • Onion: In the Middle Ages, a slice of onion was applied to the ear on the side of the aching tooth. – Courtesy of DentalSenders

Prom apparel puts mom over a barrel “Mom, when can we go prom dress shopping? Junior is only eight weeks away!” my daughter Mary informed me with a sense of urgency in her voice. “Oh no,” I thought to myself. Wasn’t it just Winter Ball? The dollar signs flashed before me. Again. HANGIN’ IN Junior Prom. It’s a big deal and there HERE was no avoiding it. “Well, I guess we could go looking next weekend, but I can’t promise we’ll buy anything,” I unenthusiastically replied. She gave VICKI me that look only a MCKENNA 16-year-old can pull off. It’s a combination of disgust and irritation mixed with some “little sad puppy-dog.” You don’t know whether to slap ’em or hug ’em. That next weekend we headed to His and Hers Formal Wear in Brentwood with my 7-year-old daughter, Haley, along for the ride. Once there, I was happy to see many racks of dresses on sale, but Mary didn’t even notice them. Like metal to a magnet, she bee-lined over to the rack of beaded and bejeweled gowns worthy of a night at the Academy Awards. Mary firmly believes that she was switched at birth. How else can you explain the rest of the family’s hideous lack of fashion sense and her keen eye for style? She was obviously meant to go home with the Versaces. I started shaking my head right away. “No way,” I whispered to her. “That dress has got to be $300! Look at these over here, Mary. How about this purple one? Or this maroon one with the low back?” I was clutching my wallet a little tighter now. “Can I just try it on?” she pleaded, clutching the dress a little tighter. I knew this could actually work in my favor if the dress looked awful on her, but what if it fit her like a glove? Meanwhile, Haley had managed to pull a pink chiffon flowergirl dress off the rack and

T

was spinning around in front of a threeway mirror, completely absorbed in her own reflection. I finally relented. “OK, you can try it on, but let’s at least find out how much it is.” It’s never a good sign when there isn’t a price tag. The nice store clerk grabbed a catalog. “Night Moves” she said softly, flipping the pages. It’s never a good sign when the dress has a title that sounds like a James Cameron movie. It was $385. I stopped clutching my wallet and started clutching my heart. The store clerk showed her to a fitting room and I helped her climb into the dress. Haley rushed in, sweaty and out of breath from her incessant twirling. We zipped the zipper and fastened the hooks – and crap. Mary looked stunning. “Mommmmmm. Pleeeeeeease?” she begged. “I know it’s beautiful,” I said sadly. And honestly, she looked like a goddess in the darn dress. “But how do we pay for it?” A heavy silence hung in the air, and then two large tears began rolling down Mary’s cheek as she began to finally grasp the reality of the situation. I was frustrated. Times are tough, but Junior Proms aren’t going anywhere, and 16-year-old girls still want a fairytale dress. Mary deserved to have it. She had borrowed a dress for Winter Ball and did her own hair and makeup. She is a 4.0 student, a leader in Leadership and has never, ever missed her curfew. I couldn’t think of one reason why she didn’t deserve that dress. From around the curtain popped the store owner. I knew that she had probably witnessed these teary scenarios between moms and daughters many times before. She spoke calmly and quietly and with a warm smile, assured us that we could work something out. The smile that came across Mary’s face was worth a million dollars. “What about my dress?” asked Haley, still holding her chiffon dress. “I’ll buy you an ice cream instead,” I said, and she was just fine with that.
