Relay volunteers needed

Hiking for Healing

The Brentwood 2011 Relay for Life event is nearly here, but there’s still time to lace up your sneakers and join a team as well as volunteer to help out at the American Cancer Society’s annual fundraiser. Held this year on Saturday and Sunday, June 11 and 12 at Liberty High School’s Ohmstede Field, organizers are still in need of volunteers to help before, during and after the event. Categories include setup, cleanup, registration, security, food, luminaria decoration, concierge (information tent) and logistics (tent setup, parking, ice and water delivery).

he Delta Valley Athletic Club’s Relay For Life team took a fundraising hike last weekend at Black Diamond Mines in Antioch in support of the American Cancer Society’s upcoming Relay event in Brentwood. The hike was organized by team captains Tony Salinaro and Kathleen Schwartz, and led by Press outdoors columnist Ger Erickson. The group savored seven hilly miles of magnificent scenery – including late-spring wildflowers and a Northern Pacific rattlesnake – and lived to tell about it.

Library seeks teen helpers The Oakley Library is looking for enthusiastic and energetic teens to help Contra Costa County Library staff with this year’s summer reading program. Volunteers will help spruce up the library, track supplies and prizes, explain the summer reading program to participants and assist with record keeping. Teens must be able to explain the summer reading program to children and adults, be dependable and responsible and must be entering eighth grade or above in the fall. Volunteering at the library is a good way to spend a few summer hours, interact with readers of

all ages and contribute to the community library. Volunteers will be assigned one to two two-hour shifts per week from June 14 through July 23. All interested volunteers must fill out an application available at the library and attend a mandatory 30-minute orientation. Orientations can be scheduled between 3 and 4 p.m. or 7 and 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 9, or Saturday, June 11 at the Oakley Library. Call the Oakley Library at 925-625-2400 to sign up for an orientation time. For more information, call Andrea Freyler afreyler@ccclib.org.

Exhibit to celebrate Antioch artist, teacher The late Evaline Webb, art teacher for the City of Antioch Recreation Department and well-known for her work depicting Antioch and surrounding areas in the 1970s through ’90s, will be honored with a memorial exhibit June 4 through 25 at the Lynn House Gallery, 809 W.

Backstreet soap opera MORE CLARITY ON MODS In the past, your lender could turn you down for a loan mod, and didn’t have to give you a reason why. A recent new law will change that for some homeowners. If you applied for a Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) loan mod and are turned down, your lender must now send you a letter detailing why you were rejected. There are up to 33 “data points” that they can use to make their determination. Not all loans will be covered by this requirement, so it’s not guaranteed that you’ll get a letter. The data points look at your home’s value, your debt ratio, income, etc. They will provide the information for the items that lead to your denial. If you think the lender has made a mistake in any of these figures, you have 30 days to appeal and provide them what you believe is the correct information. They will also look at something called the Net Present Value test (NPV). This can be a complicated calculation, but

the basic summary is the lender wants to know if they’ll lose less money be allowing a loan mod, or should they go ahead and just foreclose? There are 51 recommended input values for the NPV test, so it is fairly extensive. They look at the cost of the modification vs. the cost of foreclosure and the chance that the homeowner will default on the loan mod if it is approved. The bottom line is that if the NPV comes out positive for the loan mod, the lender is supposed to offer a loan mod. Since this is a fairly new development, I haven’t seen any of these letters in person yet. If you happen to get one, I’d love to see it.

seats. My young son was already complaining that it was too loud. In retrospect, I probably shouldn’t have brought him, but he loved the Backstreet Boys and even knew some of their dance moves. I couldn’t break his heart. I stood up for a moment (suede tends to ride up a bit) and felt something on the seat of my pants. It was blue cotton candy. The previous guest had left a nice wad stuck to the seat. Pulling pieces of the sticky stuff off my butt, I heard the opening number and had no choice but to sit down. The concert was awesome! My son climbed up into my lap. I spent most of the show clasping my hands over his ears. It probably didn’t help that I was screaming inches away from his head. (By the way, I’m pretty sure Nick waved to me.) The concert was over, and the mass exodus began. It was late and I had to carry my sleepy son on my shoulder. Did I mention that my son weighed 10 pounds at birth? Struggling to carry him and not lose my daughters in the crowd, somehow we all made it to the van. Our voices were hoarse from screaming but we all were elated. As we got on the freeway, it began to drizzle. The drizzle turned to rain. I switched on my windshield wipers. Oh, no. The soap we had used to profess our Backstreet love was now sudsing up all across my windshield and on every window! Cloudy white foam now completely obscured my view. “Oh, my God, I can’t see!” I had to slow down fast. Straining to see the lane lines and the other cars, I made it over to the slow lane. God must have heard me. The rain stopped and I was able to see the road again, but I stayed in the slow lane the whole way home. I still have a crush on Nick, but if I go see the Backstreet Boys again, I’ll be leaving the Ivory Soap in the bathroom. To comment, visit www.thepress. net.

I watched the Backstreet Boys on “Dancing With The Stars” the other night. Wow, they still look good 10 years later. As a Christmas gift to my kids (and to myself – I secretly loved Nick, the blond hunk) I once took HANGIN’ IN my kids to a BackHERE street Boys concert at the Oakland Coliseum. My husband, having no desire to sit in an auditorium filled with screaming kids (and a 40VICKI year-old woman) MCKENNA stayed home with my newborn son. One of my dearest friends decided to bring her 11-year-old son as well. I offered to pick them up in my Windstar van so we could all go together. We decorated our van with Ivory Soap, pledging our love to the Backstreet Boys on every window. I wrote “I love Nick!” on the front windshield. Everyone on the freeway would know where we were going. Next, what to wear? I was sure Nick would be looking at me, so I wanted to wear something sexy. I chose a pair of suede pants and a low-cut blouse. He wouldn’t be able to take his big, baby blues off me. We loaded up and headed to San Ramon to pick up my girlfriend and her son, blasting Backstreet hits on the stereo and singing along. At the stadium, we wandered around trying to find our seats. An usher pointed upward. She wasn’t kidding. We went up and up and up. I couldn’t believe how high up our seats were. I paid a lot of money for these seats! Where are we sitting, in the rafters? Nick will never see me up here! Wow, this section didn’t look this far away from the stage on the website! When we sat down I also realized we’d be turning our heads left to see the stage. I predicted a nasty kink in my neck after two hours of this. The band was warming up.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters Mirabilis Jalapa Otherwise known as the four o’clock flower tends to open later in the afternoon (hence the name) while at the same time omitting a sweet-smelling fragrance. And although this flower might not be your favorite or even anything you have in your garden, since 1994 the flower has played a huge role in the life’s of those affected by cancer…being considered a “symbol of hope” for survivors in both the United States and over 100 coun-tries world-wide. With spring 2011 playing host to both Oakley and Brentwood’s respective Relay for Life events why not take a few minutes and smell the “purple jasmine”. Already completed between April 30-May 1 in Oakley, and taking place June 11-12 in Brentwood, teams of 8-15 people “paint the town purple” and participate in a 24 hour event with at least one team member on the track at all times – because cancer never sleeps – in what has become the American Cancer Soci-ety’s single largest activity. Dating back to 1985 and Dr. Gordon Klatt’s Tacoma Washington grassroots effort, Relay for Life has evolved into this nation’s largest fundraising event of any kind, raising over 400 million dollars in 2008! Brentwood alone helped to raise $307,657 in funds during the 24 hour event and is looking to make it an even larger impact in 2011. And while the money donated to the

1946 founded American Cancer Society helps with patient support, decease prevention/risk reduction, and detection/ treatment, it is truly the experience itself that communities as a whole remember. Often referred to as “24 hours that you’ll never forget” Relay for Life is much more than the money - both survivors and participants alike are able to draw strength from one another, while all coming to-gether to help fight back against cancer. Celebrate. Remember. Fight back is the motto for the individuals and families in-volved during this emotional 24 hour fund raiser. I am honored to say this year I will be partaking in the event through the efforts of Brentwood Rotary, and as such welcome any questions regarding Relay for Life or the Ameri-can Cancer Society in my inbox at tfreymort-gages@yahoo.com. While I always try to keep the community updated on the latest real estate happenings, sometimes we all have to put ourselves to the side, smell the Mirabilis Jalapa, and realize there are larger things out there. Cancer does not know we are in a recession and does not care that these are tough economic times. If you have any real estate lending related questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to write me at tfreymortgages@yahoo.com or call me directly on my cell phone, (925) 726-1444. – Advertisement

Alice Coehlo Cartwright, with Bob Giannini of the Association of California School Administrators, left, and county Superintendent of Schools Joseph Ovick, was recently honored as the Contra Costa County Classified Employee of The Year.

Local educator named Employee of the Year by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer Alice Coehlo Cartwright has made a career out of helping students’ dreams come true. But recently the Freedom High School career center technician achieved a dream of her own. On May 17, Cartwright was named the Contra Costa County Office of Education Classified Employee of the Year – the first time classified employees have been honored at the county level. It’s an honor that has left the Brentwood resident and Liberty High School alumnus a little tongue-tied. “I don’t even know what to say,” said Cartwright. “I was very surprised. I clearly realize the scale of this award and it makes me even more proud of the achievement. It’s very satisfying.” Cartwright – a 1993 Liberty graduate – began her career as a probation officer in Stanislaus County, but a desire to work closer to home and a tug toward education led her in 2005 to a professional change. Today, she works at Freedom High School in the career center, counseling and guiding students as they prepare to transition from high school into the real world. “My job title is Career Center Technician

but I’m basically a school counselor,” said Cartwright. “I’m a resource of information for students to find out about college, careers – and help them take the steps forward to graduate and then move on, whether it be a four-year college, junior college, a technical school or the work force.” Gene Clare, assistant superintendent of administrative services of the Liberty Union High School District, believes Cartwright’s recognition is well deserved. “I’ve known Alice a long time,” said Clare. “She was a student when I was principal at Liberty, and she’s so deserving. She has a strong work ethic and is great at her job. I’m extremely proud of her.” So now that Cartwright has received the county’s top honors, where does she go from here? “Well, I’ve been thinking about that,” she laughed. “I hope to continue to add more opportunities and make more information available to our students by letting them know what’s new and what’s out there to help them succeed. “I love my job, I love what I do and I love the district and community I work in. I’m a hometown girl; I couldn’t be in a better place.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Bits of past part of new school building C by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Students this week at Excelsior Middle School prepared for the future with a look back at the past. As part of ongoing plans to commemorate the school’s soon-to-becompleted multi-purpose building, Excelsior students and faculty filled a time capsule with items representing the present. “The time capsule was designed to show what was going on at the time of the construction and to give a sense of the school climate,” said Excelsior Principal Charles Miller. “And to acknowledge the hard work of the community, students and staff in making this all happen.” The 30-40 items preserved for poster-

ity include a cell phone and iPod, a copy of People Magazine, articles on the death of Osama Bin Laden and headlines from local community newspapers. Excelsior school schedules, P.E. clothes and the wrappers of popular candy bars and drinks were also included. “Some of the students wrote letters to future students,” said Miller, who placed one of his business cards and his cell phone number in the capsule. “It’s possible that those students could be writing to their own children. Wouldn’t that be something?” The time capsule is set to be sealed within the next couple of weeks and eventually placed behind Plexiglas in the wall of the new auditorium.

Brentwood man is Bike Commuter of the Year At first glance, Al Lim’s commute might not seem unusual. Each day, he leaves his Brentwood home and makes his way to Bay Point, traveling the notoriously congested Highway 4 corridor like tens of thousands of others. But while everyone else drifts along in a slow-moving river of steel, Al is whizzing along the Delta De Anza Trail, the whoosh of wind, rather than traffic alerts, in his ear. Lim is the General Manager of Criterion Catalysts & Technologies, and his secret is simple: Instead of four wheels and an internal combustion engine, he travels on two wheels powered by muscle. “Our man Al commutes on his bikes, including fixed gears, in all weather conditions and against many challenges, including darkness, strong headwinds and several difficult intersections,” said Michael Thomas, Al’s cycling companion and the person who nominated Al for the Contra Costa Bike Commuter of the Year award he recently won. Bicycle commuting is not only allowed at the Criterion plant; it’s encouraged. “When our staff saw that their boss bicycled to work, it showed them that it was OK to do,” said Lim. “When I started work at Criterion, I was the only one who biked. Now, several of our staff have regularly bicycled to work from homes in Oakley, San Ramon and Oakland.” Al takes pride in the fact that East County is more bikeable every year. When

Brentwood resident and Delta Pedalers member Al Lim has been named Bicycle Commuter of the Year. friends from out of state visit, Al always seems to fit in a bike ride, and enjoys their pleasant surprise at the area’s recreationoriented climate and many bike lanes and trails. Al rides to work dressed in normal attire, because “that’s what bicyclists do.”

But he’s also inspired by how colleagues at Criterion’s European affiliates view and utilize bicycles. They think of their bikes quite differently. “Here, bicycling is a pastime and a bike is a possession you take special care of. In Europe, everyone rides a bike, and

it would be a joke to wash your bike. It would be like washing your hammer – a bike is a tool.” Al is looking forward to the re-connection of the Mokelumne Trail at the State Route 4 Bypass. “Before the Bypass, it was much better and safer to bicycle down Lone Tree Way,” Al recalls. “Now, Lone Tree is a dangerous street. The reconnected bike trail would open up the shopping centers to the residential neighborhoods for short trips to places like Trader Joe’s, and get more people biking to work.” Al and wife Mai’s three kids are bicycle aficionados. His teenage sons, Zack and Max, run track and field and sometimes cross-train on their bikes, while his 12-year-old daughter Sydney rides the most. “My cycling sets a good example to my kids for their good health,” said Al. Al also runs an orphaned bike garage, accepting all bikes his friends have abandoned over the years. He fixes up many and has given several away to friends. Al is also a regular guitar entertainer at the Delta Pedalers annual holiday party. His commitment to bicycling and his inspiration to co-workers, friends and family has earned Al Lim the title of Bike Commuter of the Year in Contra Costa County.

Fire from page 1A have fire protection. The LAFCO process is also lengthy, said Stonebarger, hence the need to begin work now on a “parallel track� to the ongoing efforts to save the ECCFPD. The move triggered an angry response from the Oakley ECCFPD representatives, who felt it showed Brentwood wasn’t fully committed to saving the existing district. They also were concerned that Brentwood’s action, and the subsequent political split in the district, could doom future efforts to pass a district-saving tax. At Tuesday’s City Council meeting, the Oakley representatives re-affirmed their commitment to the ECCFPD. Vice-mayor Kevin Romick, also a fire board member, said he understands why Brentwood wants to pursue separating from the district, but believes the decision is

Bypass from page 1A from Bimla Rhinehart, the Department of Transportation’s executive director, the Sand Creek Road interchange is on the top of the list of Tier 1 projects submitted from around Northern California for CMIA money. Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor noted that if the department OKs the Bypass improvements, the project could be put out to bid as early as July. Construction might start as early as October and take 24 to 36 months to finish. “We’re cautiously optimistic that we’ll remain high on their list,� said Dale Dennis, program manager for the State Route 4 Bypass Authority. “We think this will help tremendously because there’s so much traffic that gets off at Sand Creek.

it had been made without discussing it with the entire ECCFPD first. “There are Brown Act problems,� he said, referring to the state’s open-meeting laws that, because a quorum of the council sits on the fire board, restrict what it can discuss when not in a publicly posted council meeting. Also, city staff had already run into some delays, re-affirming the need to expedite the matter. Possible Plan B’s were also a topic in Oakley. Council member Randy Pope expressed faith in the ECCFPD but wants to ensure that Oakley residents get ample fire protection should Brentwood’s application be submitted and approved. He suggested that the city also look into the LAFCO process, as well as consulting with CONFire, which serves Antioch, about a possible merger. Mayor Jim Frazier agreed, announcing that he, Romick and City Manager Bryan

Montgomery planned to meet with CONFire this week to discuss what the district needs to do to make a merger happen. Frazier also said he wants to meet with Stonebarger and ask Brentwood to reconsider its position so that the district appears as a united front. “We need to send a clear and concise message as a district and let the people make the determination of what kind of services they want,� Frazier said. “It’s their decision. Do they want pay more for fire district or do they want to pay more to their insurance company? That’s just the way it goes.

we can get an interchange there, that should eliminate most of the congestion in the corridor, if not all of it.� The department will decide which projects to fund at its June 22 board meeting in Long Beach. Following the local project on the CMIA list is a bypass around the city of Lincoln on Route 65 in Placer County, construction on Highway 50 in El Dorado County and improvements to the Yerba Buena interchange on the Capitol Expressway in San Jose. The only other project from Contra Costa County on the list is the addition of lanes on Interstate 680 from Crow Canyon Road in San Ramon to Sycamore Valley Road in Danville, but that might not be consistent with guidelines for the granting of CMIA dollars. Taylor plans to attend the June 22 meet-

ing and lobby for the Sand Creek Road interchange project. “We have a huge chance of getting these funds,� Taylor said. “This is a phenomenal happening for Brentwood.� Brian Kalinowski, an Antioch city councilman and chairman of the regional transportation board TRANSPLAN, noted at Tuesday’s City Council meeting that this could be a major positive for not only Brentwood, but all of East County – a notion with which Brentwood’s mayor agrees. “It will tie right in with eBART getting in at Hillcrest,� Taylor said. “All this happening at the same time will really improve the quality of life in far East County.� This is the second time in the last few years that the Bypass Authority has tried to secure money for the interchange project. Dennis noted that the authority has applied

for federal stimulus money, but while the Sand Creek interchange project qualified for the state’s priority list, it didn’t make the cut at the federal level. One possible drawback of the project could be an increase in traffic congestion at the intersection of Balfour Road and the Bypass, but Dennis feels that Balfour is a large enough intersection to handle it. He believes the Bypass/Sand Creek interchange is one of the more “shovel-ready� projects proposed to the Department of Transportation and stands a good chance of receiving the state money. “Our projects are probably the most ready of all the most projects that were submitted,� said Dennis. “We’re high on the list because we’re well-positioned to actually build the project.� To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Doing the best they can

Editor: Teacher’s hearts were nearly broken yesterday when they saw the headline “East Bay schools at bottom of study.” Not something they wanted to read on the first day of the work week – or any day, for that matter. They went to their classrooms and their eyes focused on the students and their personal feelings were put on the back burner. They didn’t come across as “losers” or as an excuse for not doing well in class; they stood tall and looked their charges right in the eye. Failure is not an option, not for the educators or for the students. The old saying, “If you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re probably right” is a lesson we all need to remember when the going gets tough. And it doesn’t look like it’s going to get better for quite a while. Teachers, because they see these students on a more regular basis than some of their parents, know that the problem has very little to do with what school district students attend or the color of their skin. Their problem is much more complex. How do you get young students to believe that graduating from high school or going to college is all that important? They have seen their mothers and fathers lose a job they had for years and have been out of work for over a year. Their home, the only home they’ve ever had, has gone into foreclosure and they’re scared, really scared, that their family is about to break up. Many of their own teachers have been given pink slips. Everyone is under enormous pressure and much of it is out of their control. Maybe it’s time to take a step back and say, “It is what it is” and I’m doing the best that I can.

DBPOA – more of the same

Editor: In late April we received a post card from the DBPOA’s new management company with the results of the 4/12/11 recall election. It stated that 476 ballots were validated and counted by the election committee. If 476 ballots were counted, how did Bobbi Nugent receive 479 (three more votes than the validated total)?

Filling in the mitigation-funds blanks

Editor: I don’t know if you had a chance to read the county auditor-controller’s (AC) report or discuss this issue with anyone from the community for which the KCMF were intended to provide “mitigation,” but your article is completely silent to the fact that the money was being diverted illegitimately away from its intended purpose. At best it was sloppy and damaging to the Keller Canyon community; at worst it was a political favor slush fund that served supervisors Glover and Piepho. Recall that these “mitigation funds” were used for the ZIP Code event that “celebrated” Discovery Bay’s new ZIP code while congratulating the Piephos for their efforts in that endeavor and tell me if the KC community were well served by that diversion of funds. The fact that the CCC-BOS Finance Committee and the CCC-BOS as a whole recognized the KCMF were being administered improperly as pointed out by the AC report and worked with the AC office to improve the process is completely lost on your reporting. Even more misleading is your mention of some wonderful nonprofits that have received benefits from KCMF without commenting on whether or not they will continue to receive the funds legitimately. Neither do you mention if they should not have received

the funds at all, and if by receiving the funds some other equally deserving and legitimately entitled organizations did not receive them. Nothing from the AC report to the Finance Committee recommendations to the BOS order will reduce the amount of funds being used for the benefit of the community. The only change is that the funds will be used properly, as they were intended, to benefit those who are deserving of mitigation as a result of the Keller Canyon Landfill. What this all means to Discovery Bay is that we are no longer able to illegitimately receive reimbursements from this fund. Sorry, it was never the right thing to do anyway. What our Community Services District should do to properly clarify the situation, as was pointed out by the district’s own attorney, the auditor-controller’s office, and LAFCO, is to activate powers of funding for county advisory duties through LAFCO. It is pretty simple: Ratepayer funds can only be used for services for which they are intended, and at this point they are not intended for county advisory purposes. Each year the district spends many thousands of dollars for these functions in clear violation of Prop 218. They know it, but have said that until someone sues them they are not going to change anything. In fact, they won’t even discuss it as a board at a public meeting. I think your readership is capable of understanding these issues and I hope at some point you will report on them. Don Flint Discovery Bay

STUDENT LOANS AND BANKRUPTCY by Joan Grimes, Esq. If you are thinking about filing bankruptcy, but are worried about your ability to get student loans either for yourself or a dependent in the future, you are not alone. If you are worried about repaying student loan debt, you are not alone. These concerns are so common that the Bankruptcy Code specifically addresses them. Let’s address the easy issue first: Getting student grants and loans after a bankruptcy. The Bankruptcy Code provides that no governmental unit may deny a student grant, loan, loan guarantee, or loan insurance to a person that is or has been a debtor in a bankruptcy case. What this means is that student grants and loans are available to people filing bankruptcy as long as you meet other grant or loan program qualifications. You should expect a credit report to be run when obtaining a student loan or grant. Therefore, it is a good idea to minimize other debt. Now for the more difficult problem: Repaying student loans. The current Bankruptcy Code provides that student loans or obligations to repay funds received as an educational benefit, scholarship or stipend are not dischargeable in bankruptcy unless it would impose an undue hardship on the debtor. What this means is that 1) the debtor must show an inability to maintain a minimal standard of living based on current income and expenses, 2) that the existence of these additional circumstances is likely to persist for a significant portion of the repayment period, and 3) that the debtor has shown a good faith effort to repay the debt. These conditions are extremely difficult prove and there is a recent bankruptcy case in San Francisco where the bankruptcy judge held that a “minimal standard of living” does not mean a middle class lifestyle and the debtor can be required to make “major personal and financial sacrifices.” The good news is that on March 30, 2010, Congress enacted legislation to revamp the federal student loan program. The new law eliminates fees paid to private banks and will expand the Pell Grant Program. In addition, starting

July 2014, the program will allow students to cap repayment at 10% of income above a basic living allowance. In the meantime, if you have student loan debt which you cannot repay, I suggest you contact your lender and enroll in the Income Based Repayment Program (IBR). This program is designed to help people pay back their loans at a rate proportional to their income. The student loan debt crisis WILL be the next big crisis after we finish with the mortgage crisis. There is more student loan debt in this country than credit card debt. I fully expect some type of relief to be provided for student loan debt again under the Bankruptcy Code. It is just going to take time. However, I expect the relief provided will be dependent on a person showing evidence that some payment has been made on the debt. In conclusion, student loan debt should be avoided, unless it is absolutely clear that a future career will be sufficient enough to pay back the debt. I strongly encourage you to minimize student loan debt for undergraduate school. Live at home, get a part time job. Don’t sell out your future and the future of your children. If you have other debt which can be discharged in bankruptcy, seek legal counsel. Discharging other debt and focusing on the repayment of student loan debt will make it easier for you.

BVAL readies for Meet of Champions by Michael Dixon Correspondent

East County athletes enjoyed great success at the recent Tri-Valley North Coast Section track and field meet. Every Bay Valley Athletic League school qualified at least two athletes for the Memorial weekend’s Meet of Champions. Deer Valley was the best overall team. The Wolverine girls took the top spot; the boys finished sixth. Qualifying for the MOC on the girls’ side were senior Joy Gee (100 meters, 200 meters), senior Erica Wilson (100 meters, 300 meter hurdles), junior Audrena Harlan (triple and long jump), seniors Darnella Jenkins (long jump), Raven Fox (400 meters) and sophomore Chantell Taito (shot put). Wilson won both of her races, Jenkins won the long jump and Harlan won the triple jump. Also qualifying were the 4x100 team of Harlan, Wilson, Gee and Jenkins (4x100), and the 4x400 team of Fox, Gee, Wilson and Jenkins. Joining them will be senior Dariel Patton (100 meters) and junior Shawn Simms (100 meters, long jump). Also qualifying for the Wolverines was the 4x400 team of senior Andrew Hunte, juniors Isaiah Reed and Tajae Smith White, and Simms. “They performed pretty well,” said Deer Valley head coach Bernard Stephens. “It was a surprise to me; I wasn’t really expecting that. It’s been a long and a trying year. Sometimes you get years like that. All you can ask for is that they go and compete – and our athletes have done that.” The Heritage boys and girls made an impressive showing. Both won the overall Bay Valley

Athletic League Championship, the boys finishing second and the girls tying Freedom for the No. 17 position. One girl who qualified for the MOC was freshman Sarah Toelkes, who edged senior teammate Alex Grant in the 800-meter race for the final spot. In a sign of sportsmanship, Toelkes gave her spot to Grant, as Grant had the race won before tripping on a spike and falling just short of the finish line. She got up and crawled across the finish line in the eighth position, which would have been one spot short of MOC qualification. “We took home second place and we get a banner for that. That’s a big step for our program; we’re extremely proud of that,” said Patriots head coach Kevin Bain. “That’s the most kids that we’ve ever had qualify for the Meet of Champions.” The Heritage boys who qualified were seniors Eric Morford (1600m), Brandon Brum (800m), Bryan Cuellar, Billy Eng (high jump), Jake Rounds and Alex Horncliff (shot put, discus), junior Miguel Aguiar (400m), and freshman Frank Kurtz (400m).

Heritage rallies to top DV by Michael Dixon Correspondent

The only two Bay Valley Athletic League losses Deer Valley suffered this year came at the hands of league champion Heritage. That gave the Patriots the home field advantage in the first-round North Coast Section playoff game between the two – otherwise, the slate was wiped clean. After building up a five-run lead in the fourth inning, it looked like the Wolverines

would avenge their prior losses. But Heritage rallied to score one in the fourth, one in the fifth, and four in the sixth to take a 6-5 lead, which would stand as the final. “We were not going to go home,” said junior second baseman Carlos Carrillo. “We stayed focused. We had the mindset to get the win, and we never failed.” Heritage junior pitcher Paul Blackburn went the full seven innings, but he did see Rallies page 23A

Led by Deer Valley, Freedom and Heritage, Bay Valley Athletic League teams made a strong showing at the recent North Coast Section swimming and diving championship meet. The Patriot girls placed 10th overall and the boys finished 13th – both bests this season for a BVAL team. Freedom also capped a solid season with a respectable 26th-place finish in girls events. Deer Valley placed 37th in the girls rankings. Several Heritage athletes got on the radar for this season’s All-American honors – spotlighting the 100 best times in the country – including junior Madison Applegate, who finished fifth in the 100 yard butterfly event with a time of 55.58 seconds. Her best time this year is 55.18. Applegate, along with Emilee Troy, Haley Rose Love and Erica Knudsen, posted a nice time in the 200-yard freestyle relay (1:38.20), but will likely narrowly miss All-American consideration. Individually, Love placed sixth in the finals in the 50-yard freestyle event and eighth in the 100-yard freestyle. “We set a goal earlier in the year

that we wanted to try and finish in the top 10,” Heritage High head coach Craig Carson said. Patriots boys also qualified for the finals. The 400-yard freestyle relay team of Ryan Barsanti, Kurt Holzmuller, Travis West and Walker Thaning finished eighth with a time of 3:15.59. Travis Cook was also the highest-finishing BVAL diver, placing 12th. Carson was proud of this year’s squad and excited that of the 16 athletes who qualified for NCS, only two are graduating. Freedom saw some athletes break school records at the NCS meet. The relay team of freshman Emily To’o, sophomore Emily Harris, sophomore Sierra MacIntyre and senior Taylor Henry finished 13th in the finals in the 200-yard medley relay and 200-yard freestyle relay. Both times set Falcons records. Individually, swimmers To’o, Harris and Justin Stafford all qualified for NCS. The Falcons placed several divers in the finals as well.

Spartans derail Wolverines in NCS final by Michael Dixon Correspondent

Photo by Curtis Evans

Deer Valley senior outside hitter Taylor Higgs goes up for a ball during Saturday’s North Coast Section final game with De La Salle.

The only way the Deer Valley boys volleyball team could improve on their 2010 campaign was to reach the North Coast Section’s final match. That was the goal of everyone involved with the team. When the Wolverines defeated Amador Valley in the NCS semifinals, that goal was realized. Unfortunately for the Wolverines, their dream season fell short of an NCS championship, as the top-seeded De La Salle Spartans defeated Deer Valley three games to one. “This season exceeded expectations,” said senior outside hitter Taylor Higgs. “I never thought we would get this far. I mean, I knew we would be good, but I didn’t think we would do so well against the teams we played and win as many games as we did.” The Wolverines’ final round got off to a promising start as they came from behind to win the opening game 26-24. They trailed for nearly the entire game, but took their first lead on an ace from Higgs, putting them up 23-22. Shortly thereafter, 6-foot-8-inch sophomore middle blocker Marcus Lee rejected an attempted Spartans kill to give Deer Valley a 26-24 win in the opening game. But the Wolverines wouldn’t lead again until the fourth game. De La Salle opened up big early leads against Deer Valley in both the second and third games and cruised to victories in both. But even in Deer Valley’s worst moments, the DV student section made its presence felt, raucously urging the team to rally. The Spartans’ gym was packed nearly to capacity. “I thought the crowd was awesome,” said Wolverines head coach Lou Panzella. “Their guys were awesome and our guys were awesome. I don’t think any of

our guys have ever played in front of this many people, and that just makes for a great match.” Although they lost the fourth set, it probably was Deer Valley’s best overall game, as they led for much it and never faced significant deficits. In the end, the Spartans’ speed and tremendous blocking ability negated the Wolverines’ size advantage. While the Deer Valley coaches and players were all upset with the loss, they were quick to point to De La Salle’s superb play as the cause. “They just outplayed us by a little bit,” said senior outsider hitter Jason Agopian, who will be playing for UC Irvine next year. “We’ve still got some younger players and we’re building up our strength and made a great run to the finals. But they’re a great team. I congratulate them.” Agopian led all players with 16 kills. Trailing him were teammates Higgs and junior opposite hitter Noah Labonte, who each made eight. Sophomore setter Derrico Kwa notched 35 assists. The Spartans were led by senior outside hitter John Hayes, who made 14 kills. Junior setter Michael Doherty recorded 29 assists. The Wolverines, whose season ends at 39-4, graduate five players. Co-captains Higgs and Agopian were four-year varsity starters. Short of winning an NCS Championship, their run could not have been more successful. This season marked the fifth consecutive Bay Valley Athletic League championship for Deer Valley. In that run, the team has not dropped a single league match. Additionally, the 2011 run followed NCS semifinal appearances in 2009 and 2010. “It’s been really good,” said senior middle blocker Cole McMahon. “I started as a sophomore, got moved up to varsity the next year, and it’s just been better and better every year.”

4x100 and 4x400 relays, sophomore Lindsay McGrath ran the second leg between seniors Taevionna Wilson, Le’Shay Evans and Khadija Suleman. The Panther girls earned a second-place finish.

In the fourth inning, junior shortstop Thomas Riley and junior second baseman Michael Lanter both beat out infield singles.

“They exceeded my expectations in terms of how they finished at the meet,” Panthers head coach Joshua Tezeno said. “I had only a four-girl squad. They took second at the meet, and that was a good surprise.” The achievement was magnified by the fact that Antioch is one of the few schools in the NCS Tri-Valley that competes on a dirt track, and that Evans, who played basketball for four years at Antioch, didn’t join the track team until this season. Sophomore Alex McCauley-Sim-

mons (200m) and senior Peter Tirade (discus) will join their female teammates at the MOC. In addition to Freedom’s tie with the Heritage girls, the Falcons boys finished in seventh place. Qualifying for the MOC were senior D’Amora Cooper (110 hurdles, long jump), junior Adrian Perez (100m, 200m), senior Mike Kicenski (high jump) and senior Timazray Shepherd, who won the 100. Senior Sara Radda qualified for the girls MOC in the 100-meter hurdles. The 4x100 team of

Cooper, Perez, Shepherd and sophomore Darrell Daniels also qualified. Liberty juniors Nicholas West (triple jump) and Jesus Morales (pole vault) were the only Lions to qualify for the MOC. Pittsburg’s boys qualifying were seniors Javen Butler (100), John Lacey (shot put) and junior Miles Walker (long jump).

tage outfielders for a grand slam, giving Deer Valley a 5-0 lead. “I just put my head down and swung as hard as I could,” McKnight said. “To hit a grand slam in the NCS playoffs – it just doesn’t get much better than that.” Heritage got a run in each of the next two innings, but left the bases loaded both times. Trailing 5-2 in the bottom of the sixth, the Patriots rallied. Blackburn’s single scored senior shortstop Jake Meister. Carrillo also scored when the ball got away from Gavello in left field while Blackburn advanced to second. After an intentional walk to senior right fielder Ryan Howell, senior left fielder Jeff Casperson stepped

up with two on and two out. After falling behind 0-2 in the count to Wolverines sophomore relief pitcher Tyler Vistalli, Casperson took an opposite field approach. He lined a ball into the right center field gap that scored both Blackburn and Howell. Casperson was thrown out trying to stretch the double into a triple, but Howell had already scored for the 6-5 lead. Jorgensen threw a 1-2-3 seventh inning to finish the game. “I knew the pitcher was struggling,” said Casperson. “I think it was a fastball; I just wanted to hit the ball as hard as I could to the opposite field.” Vistalli replaced junior starter Ricky

Delgado with two outs in the bottom of the fourth. Delgado allowed one unearned run on five hits, two walks and five strikeouts. After McKnight’s slam, Blackburn didn’t allow any hits. The victory earned the Patriots a Friday road date against top-seeded San Ramon Valley. Heritage lost 7-3 to the Wolves on April 25. “I’ll be really interested to see how we play against San Ramon,” said manager Kevin Brannan. “When they beat us, we were without a couple of our top guys – but they’re a great team.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

performance was impeccable and they have really good attitudes.” Deer Valley’s relay teams were well represented at NCS. The girls and boys 200yard medley, girls and boys 200-yard freestyle and girls and boys 400-yard freestyle squads made it to the trials, though not the

finals. Wolverines senior diver Rachel Cadwallader was the highest-finishing BVAL girls diver in the finals, placing 16th. Junior Isabella Navarro finished 35th. Two Liberty individuals – junior J.T. Sarmento and Joey Cecchini – and two relay

teams – the boys 200- and 400-yard freestyle – qualified for NCS. Senior diver Stuart Boyer placed 26th in boys swimming. Antioch placed two divers in the finals – senior Zach Barlow, who finished 28th, and senior Amelia Taylor, who placed 37th. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

f you’re looking for somewhere to take the kids this summer that doesn’t require sunscreen,

beach towels or $50 bucks in the gas tank, consider a trip to Bricks4Kids in Brentwood. The Lego creativity center – set to open in June – is a free-style, freefor-all bright and colorful assemblage of the popular building blocks, designed to entice and encourage imagination in kids of all ages and interests.

“Lego has always been a popular toy,” said Jenny Shirks, co-owner of Bricks4Kids. “And when I was a kid, Lego was just the regular blocks. But now there are so many varieties of Lego, it’s wonderful. Whatever kids can imagine, they can create. And we’re going to help them do that.” The center hosts birthday parties, special events, summer camps, and free-play walk-in times. The sky’s the limit, said Shirks, for the creation of future programs and projects. Although the building blocks are all about constructing fun and cultivating the imagination, the Bricks4Kids model features an educasee Lego page 8B

Marina from page 2B As the marina had decayed into a junkyard, Hinman, a former architectural engineer, knew he had his work cut out for him. But he also knew that with determination, hard work and help from his friends, he could restore Cruiser Haven into the hotspot it was 40 years ago. The renovations included pulling sunken boats from the harbor, cleaning up the docks, refurbishing a picnic and recreation area and redoing the main office – among other things. Today, although Hinman has more work to do, Cruiser Haven is a quiet, secluded cove in the Delta. The 30 acres of waterfront property off Orwood Road is home to 155 berths that can accommodate boats as large as 65 feet. The cove is also home to an array of wildlife, including beavers, sea otters, turtles, ducks and a variety of fish. The access to the Delta’s native neighbors is one of the things that sets Cruiser Haven apart from other marinas, and Hinman has no desire to mess with the habitat – except for clearing out Delta’s unwanted visitor egeria densa. While the California Department of Boating and Waterways has been spraying areas of Discovery Bay and Bethel Island in an attempt to eradicate the pesky weeds, Hinman is taking matters into his own hands. He operates a Weedoo, an eco-friendly boat engineered specifically to perform a vast range of waterway tasks such as extracting aquatic weeds and other pollutants. The Weedoo technology is so new that Hinman is the first person on the West Coast to own the vessel. “The weeds have been such a pain,” Hinman said. “They get twisted up in motors and cause all kinds of trouble. It’s bad for business. I’ve already seen a drop in business as people are

MAY 27, 2011 moving their boats elsewhere to get away from it. I’m doing what I can to get the weeds out and keep them out so my renters won’t be inconvenienced by it. This is a place to come and relax, so I don’t want them worrying about the weeds.” Hinman’s second marina, Holland Riverside, which he purchased last year, is the opposite of Cruiser Haven. The marina features a boat ramp, so boats are coming in and out of the area all the time. On the weekends, more than 150 boats pass through the marina. The area is so popular that River View Yacht Club recently relocated to Holland Riverside and operates a clubhouse onsite. The marina also features a minimart and boat storage. Hinman believes the Delta’s appeal is its mystery. “You could spend a lifetime exploring the Delta and you still won’t have seen it all,” he said. “There are all these sloughs and estuaries. The Delta has so much to offer. Lakes get crowded, but the Delta is always open, whether you want to wakeboard, water ski, cruise around, fish or sail. There are so many possibilities for spending an afternoon.” Hinman said it will be another five years before he’s completely transformed Cruiser Haven into the destination it was in the 1970s, when it was a premiere Delta port of call, but he looks forward to the work. “I was really burned out from the building business,” Hinman said. “I built homes, malls and I just got tired of it. But this … I love what I’m doing here in the Delta. I’m bringing these little marinas back to life. Back to what they’re worth.” For more information about Cruiser Haven and Holland Riverside, visit www.cruiserhaven. com and www.hollandriverside.com.

offers an “around the world” theme emphasizing the world’s many nations and cultures. Older kids can participate in camps offering Disney beach parties, undersea experiences or roles as knights and princesses. Other fun activities include fitness camps and boys boot camps. The camps operated by Black Diamond usually attract about 40 to 50 kids per session and focus on fitness, education and team-building. “Our camps are focused on what we call ‘edutainment,’” Storrer said. “It’s a lot of fun, but they learn stuff and do all-around fitness.” One of the more popular events hosted by the center is Kids Night Out, where parents can drop off their kids at Black Diamond and enjoy the night together while the children have fun for a few hours. Kids Night Out is held two Saturdays per month from 4 to 9 p.m. The center offers Friday Night Out on one Friday per month, from 6 to 9 p.m. Both programs fill up fast. Parents can also get in on the fun through Motion Evolution, a 12-week fitness regimen hosted at the center for adults and kids. Motion Evolution encourages parents to work out while keeping an eye on their kids. Programs such as Kids Night Out save money and headaches by offering a fun, stress-free alternative to finding a babysitter or taking the entire family out. “We’ve tried to make it easy for our customers because we really want to just offer a lot of value,” Storrer said. “We want them to feel like ‘I’m Photo by Richard Wisdom getting a ton of value when I go to Black Rebecca Cripe gets a boost from instructor Diamond.’” Sheila Fisher.

Lego from page 3B tional boost. Some of the classes at the center will be planned as units, such as inventions, robotics or movie making. Participants are given background on the project and given an outline for creating the object. “For example,” said Shirks, “one of our units is about the invention of the windshield wiper. So the kids learn about its history, who invented it and why, and they get to build a set of wipers out of Lego. It’s a fun way to incorporate some educational aspects into the process.” As they awaited the opportunity to open their storefront facility, Shirks and husband Mike took their Lego show on the road, offering after-school classes at Krey Elementary in Brentwood. Now, as the center is nearly ready to open, the response has already been positive, especially from their harshest critics – their kids. “Our kids love it,” said Jenny Shirks. “My son didn’t want me to go back to work, but when he found out work was going to be a Lego center, he was all for it. The kids think we’re rock stars.” The Bricks4Kids is a fairly new franchise begun a few years ago by a stay-at-home mom in Florida looking for a way to entertain her children and their friends. From there, the centers took off, and next month’s opening of the Shirks location will mark the first Bricks4Kids franchise in California. “We’re very excited,” said Jenny Shirks. “People are already excited about the center, and we hope to keep that energy going. We’re ready to have some fun.” Bricks4Kids is located at 3150 Balfour Road in the Safeway shopping center. For additional information and store hours, call 925-684-4082.

Dare to shake up your workout routine If you feel stuck in a rut, it’s time to shake things up. New ways to exercise and diet can make your efforts to improve your overall health more engaging and help you stay on track. Pittsburgh Steelers dietitian and author Leslie J. Bonci, who advises athletes on how to stay at the top of their game, offers the following tips on new ways to stay on top of yours: Groove it: get moving to a new beat If you’ve never tried working out to music, now’s a good time to start. And if you have an exercise playlist, try out some new tunes. The American Council on Exercise (ACE) has found that the faster the tempo of the music, the higher the intensity of the workout. Your body naturally moves to whatever tempo it’s listening to, so speeding it up can help you get more from your workout. The ACE research also showed that a faster tempo also makes intense exercise seem less stressful. Change it: take on a new workout Doing the same exercises all the time can get boring, which makes it harder to keep doing them. Shake things up and dare yourself to get moving in a new way: try a dance-based workout such as Zumba, kickboxing, ballroom dancing, a spinning class or circuit training. Or if you really want to challenge yourself, join a local, high-intensity boot camp. Many gyms and fitness centers offer low-cost, short-term options that let you sample exercise programs before you commit long-term. Some memberships let you work with a personal trainer a few times for free – a good way to get customized training. Log it: keep a food journal Improving your overall health means learning how to make better food choices. Keeping a food

journal helps you take an honest look at your eating habits and make healthy changes. • Record everything you eat and drink right away. • Make a note of what you did while eating (watched TV, worked at computer). • Describe your feelings while you ate. Understanding the emotions behind your food choices can help you make the right changes. Try it: incorporate new foods According the newly released Dietary Guidelines, incorporating plant-based proteins into a daily diet can help maximize overall health. Soybeans in their whole, natural state are the only plant-based source of complete protein. A reasonable goal should be to consume two servings of whole soy a day (a total of 15 to 20g soy protein). New and improved SOYJOY, made with whole soy, real fruit and other all-natural ingredients, is an ideal way to fit whole soy into your daily routine. SOYJOY is the perfect snack to throw into your backpack, gym bag or glove compartment to fuel you through a long workday or intense workout. SOYJOY provides a nutrient-dense combination of complete protein, complex carbohydrates and fiber to help supply sustained energy – at only 130-140 calories. To make new habits stick, it’s important to hold yourself accountable. Dare yourself to take on one of these new challenges or invent your own, and share your dare with friends on Facebook as part of SOYJOY’s Do you Dare? program. SOYJOY is sweetening the deal by offering prizes and incentives to those who take a dare and stick to it. Check it out at www. facebook.com/soyjoy. – Courtesy of Family Features

The breast is best R MEDA VE AWARD

L

2010

Breastfeeding is a natural, age-old practice that holds numerous benefits for both baby and mother. While it’s not advisable for some women – such as those with certain infections and chronic illnesses – the vast majority of women are capable of breastfeeding and are encouraged to at least attempt it. Breast milk provides complete nutrition, helping to build strong digestive and immune systems and can protect against respiratory infections, some childhood cancers, and obesity. Breastfed babies often have less gas, constipation and diarrhea, fewer feeding problems and less illness than formula-fed babies. For nursing mothers, breastfeeding provides an inexpensive and convenient feeding option. Women who breastfeed may lose weight faster, experience less stress during the postpartum period, build stronger bonds with their babies, and decrease their risk of breast cancer. Before it’s time to deliver, notify your doctor, and the health care team that delivers your baby, of your breastfeeding plans. They’ll help you start, and support your breastfeeding once the baby is born. Try to nurse within the first hour after delivery while your newborn is alert and ready to suck. After your baby gets the hang of breastfeeding, nurse on demand. Use signs of hunger, such as when your baby nuzzles against your breast, makes sucking motions, or puts a hand in his or her

mouth, as a guide for when to feed your baby. Many newborns will nurse between eight and 12 times every 24 hours for about 10 to 15 minutes on each breast. Your doctor can explain how to interpret diaper-changing patterns and weight gain as signs that your baby is getting enough milk. Breastfeeding women require about 500 more calories per day than they needed before becoming pregnant. Eat a well-balanced diet that includes at least 1,000 milligrams of calcium, and drink at least eight glasses of liquid a day. Try to identify and avoid foods that seem to cause a reaction in your baby. Rashes, fussiness, diarrhea or congestion after nursing can signal a food allergy. Exclusive breastfeeding can temporarily stop ovulation, making it less likely that you’ll get pregnant. However, if you’re trying to avoid pregnancy, you still need to use birth control. Barrier methods such as condoms and intra-uterine devices will not affect your milk supply. If you decide to use hormonal contraception, your doctor can help you choose a progestin-only method. The estrogen in combination pills can diminish milk supply early on and should not be used until nursing is established. Ob-gyns, pediatricians, nurses and lactation specialists can be great breast-feeding resources. Be sure to consult with them about health questions and practical issues. Dr. James N. Martin, Jr. is president of The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

(The American Heart Association recommends the consumption of only 1 gram of fish oil daily but emphasizes the importance of eating actual fish as opposed to popping supplements.) Talk to your doctor about fish oil, as the dosage is also related to body weight. If you take the supplement, take it with a big glass of water. God gave us two ears and one mouth, and as much as I want to use them proportionately, I usually don’t. I find myself making decisions for my mom and not always listening. My concern for her overshadows the fact that she’s her own person and can make intelligent decisions without my hovering like a buzzard. I’m glad she likes salmon!

My husband’s doctor recommended fish oil for him and every morning with his other vitamins, he takes this large, yellow oily looking thing. Since we all hear that fish is good for us because it contains Omega 3 fatty acids, I decided to read up on it. The “fatty acid” SENIOR part didn’t sound espeORNER cially healthy, so I read all I could to straighten that out. Fish oil is taken from the skin of some fish – not the fish itself. The skin contains microalgae. As the fatty-acid fish are big algae connoisseurs MARLA and don’t accumulate LUCKHARDT as much toxin in their systems as shark or swordfish, most fish oils come from less-predatory creatures such as salmon, sardines and herring. (I guess salmon, herring and sardines are too small to overpower a skin diver or vacationing snorkelers. Now that’s a real fish story!) Studies of fish oil use reveal a decrease

Reliv-ing national Trilogy offers Alicante Men’s Health Week Each year, the week leading up to Father’s Day is designated National Men’s Health Week. As part of this year’s observance, from June 13-19, Dr. Carl Hastings, Reliv International’s chief scientific officer, suggests that men embrace the message of this annual awareness campaign and give their families a special Father’s Day gift: adopting a healthier, more proactive attitude toward their health. “There is no better way to show your love and concern for your family and friends,” said Hastings, “than by taking action now to help stop preventable diseases from developing and taking steps to keep your body and mind in peak condition.” The statistics surrounding men’s health problems are sobering. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), men die at higher rates of the top 10 causes of death, including heart disease, cancer and stroke, and have an average life expectancy at birth of only 75.3 years as opposed to a woman’s 80.4 years. The good news, according to Hastings, is that men can take steps to ramp up their health defenses: • Regular check-ups and age-appropriate screening tests are the first defense against preventable illness

and disease. The Men’s Health Network provides its Men’s Health Checklist health maintenance schedule at www.getitchecked.com. • Plenty of exercise and a diet low in saturated fat, combined with an optional supplementation program with plant-based compounds known as phytosterols, can help control high cholesterol, a leading cause of heart disease. • While genetic factors also play a key role, a diet high in vegetables, fruits and whole grains, combined with an optional supplementation program that includes Vitamin E and selenium, can provide protection against one of the most common cancers to inflict American men: prostate cancer. • Maintaining a healthy weight and adding certain can help control blood-sugar levels and lessen the chances of developing diabetes. • Controlling chronic stress can reduce the risk of obesity and heart disease and can help avoid behaviors that may raise the risk of cancer. Reliv International offers essential daily nutrition and weight loss supplements. For more information about the Reliv International business in the Brentwood area, call Julie Moeller at 925-6349110 or e-mail jdreliv@gmail.com.

The Alicante, part the John Marsh Heritage Design Series at Trilogy at the Vineyards, is the first and only floor plan priced below the $400s. Residents of the new homes will be able to enjoy open spaces that combine functionality with plenty of areas to focus on personal interests and have access to the community’s resortstyle amenities, at a great value. Featured at $392,990, the Alicante gives baby boomer homebuyers 1,465 square feet of residential space that includes: • Trilogy’s proprietary SmartSpace – a supersized, multi-purpose utilities room accommodating everything from pursuing hobbies to working from home or doing laundry. • Spaces that complement indoor and outdoor livability, including a large covered backyard patio that spills out from the indoor great room. • A more socially aware layout that includes an open kitchen, dining and great room area. • A social media and kitchen menu planning center. This mini open-office area, tucked between the kitchen and master bedroom, is perfect for surfing the net, connecting with friends online or planning meals. “At Trilogy, we have noticed that many boomers are looking to downsize their lives,” said Dan O’Brien, area general manager for Trilogy at the Vineyards. “They want to sell their old home and still have money left in their pockets without compromising their lifestyles. We also have members that spend upwards of 80 percent of their

time in the community enjoying our restaurants, athletic center, social areas and clubs. They want to spend as little time as possible maintaining their homes. “The Alicante is a perfect example of how we are addressing these individuals’ needs to pursue an active, engaging retirement. Whereas many homebuilders automatically eliminate personal areas meant for enjoying hobbies, socializing and working in retirement in smaller models, we have sought to better utilize space to bring those spaces back in to focus with the Alicante..” Trilogy at the Vineyards is enveloped by 3,500 acres of natural preserve. It lies in the middle of 30 acres of working vineyards and olive orchards, delivering an authentic wine-country lifestyle. As with all residents of Trilogy at Vistancia, boomers who purchase homes from the Alicante model have access to Club Los Meganos, a new 34,000-square-foot social hub that offers diverse fitness classes and high-end equipment at the Delta Athletic Club, luxurious treatments at Sawã Spa, two pools, a culinary studio and bistro-style restaurant, event center and grand living room. Outdoor amenities include The Los Olivos Tennis Pavilion with four courts to choose from and three miles of wine country walking trails. To celebrate the release of the Alicante, Shea Homes is including a limited-time introductory offer. New homebuyers get $20,000 of upgrades free in the current home price.

Yes, that’s right; I am calling this the best opportunity you will have to get a fresh start. With current Tax and Real Estate Laws on the side of Homeowners, there is no better time to get behind the massive negative equity associated with most homes in our area. Call us today; we will not push you into a short sale. Our job as always is to GIVE YOU THE BEST REAL ESTATE ADVICE AVAILABLE. * Don’t know your rights? * Not sure if a short sale is best for your situation? * Behind on payments? * Lost your job? * Just need info on how it works * Depleted your savings just to stay up on your mortgage?
