The man who threatened violence against students and staff at Freedom High School over several months last fall was sentenced this week in Contra Costa County Superior Court. Tristen Amir Curl, a 20-year-old resident of Oakley and Austin, Texas, pleaded guilty to stalking and making criminal threats, both felony offenses. Curl was immediately sentenced by the Honorable Judy Johnson as part of a negotiated disposition to the case. “The sentencing of Mr. Curl will hopefully bring some closure to the Oakley community,” said Kelly Manke, principal of Freedom High School. “I am proud to be the principal of Freedom High School and will continue to work with our students, staff and local resources to ensure safety is our top see Guilty page 26A

Vote on urban limit line will go to public by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer

A group of local developers has cleared the first major hurdle in expanding Brentwood’s urban limit line (ULL) to accommodate a large residential development project that includes various other elements. Longtime Brentwood farmer and developer Ron Nunn, a development team member behind the proposed changes, confirmed this week that hired signature-gatherers have collected more than the required 3,500 verified autographs needed for the Brentwood City Council to put the question before voters. “We feel good about it,” said Bob Nunn, son of Ron Nunn and a fellow development team member. “We think it’s a good

opportunity for the city.” Qualifying the ballot measure aimed at moving Brentwood’s ULL — the mark at which urban development must stop — is a first step in a proposed 815-acre, 2,400 residential-unit project situated north of Balfour Road, east of Deer Valley Road, and west of the

Shadow Lakes and Brentwood Hills neighborhoods. The area in question is currently Ginochio family land used for cattle grazing and dryland farming for the last 150 years. Ron Nunn has a contract with the Ginochio family to develop the property. The Brentwood City Council will convene on June 25 to decide

whether to put the ULL expansion question before voters this November, or in November 2020, or to slightly delay the decision by requesting a special report be compiled to further explore the proposal, including its fiscal impact, consistency with the city’s general and specific plans, and how it would affect infrastructure funding, ag lands, open space and traffic congestion. If the report is requested, the council’s decision on when to pose the question to voters would be delayed, with the report created within 30 days. The developers would be required to pay for the election and report costs if the council decides more information is needed, City Manager Gus Vina said. see Vote page 26A

Driver arrested after striking light pole by Tony Kukulich Staff Writer

The driver of a car that struck a light pole in Oakley Monday night was flown from the scene with injuries described as life threatening by an East Contra Costa Fire Protection District spokesperson. Tuesday morning, Oakley Police Chief Eric Christensen confirmed that the driver, who has not been identified, was arrested on suspicion of DUI. “Just terrible the risk he put himself, his passenger and the community at due to his bad decision making,” said Christensen. The car, a white Ford Mustang, wrapped around the pole after striking it on the driver’s side, trapping the seriously injured driver inside. Crews from ECCFPD and the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District worked for nearly 30 minutes to free the driver from the wreckage. In order to extricate him, firefighters used a fire engine to pull the car away from the pole. While the move was deemed necessary

to free the driver, there was concern that the pole, which was in close proximity to utility wires, might fall once the car was removed. It held firm and did not threaten the remainder of rescue operations. Firefighters then used a variety of hydraulically-operated tools to extricate the man. Once free, he was taken by ambulance a short distance to Crockett Park where a CalStar helicopter was waiting to fly him to the trauma center at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek. A passenger in the car escaped injury and did not require hospitalization. The accident was reported at 10:38 p.m. and occurred on Empire Avenue near the intersection with Hemlock Drive. Sgt. Jeffrey Solomon of the Oakley Police Department said neighbors reported hearing the sound of screeching tires immediately before the accident. The accident remains under investigation by the Oakley Police Department. To view a video and a slideshow, visit www.thepress.net/multimedia

Gearing up for Relay for Life of the Delta by Hayley Finetti

Barbara Robertson encourages walkers at last year’s American Cancer Society Relay For Life of the Delta. The event raised over $100,000 with 70 teams, and organizers are expecting another large turnout this year.

Correspondent

Relay for Life of the Delta is coming back to Contra Costa County June 22. Since 2000, Relay for Life has been a tradition in East County, happening in several cities including Antioch, Brentwood, Oakley, Pittsburg and Discovery Bay. Last year, East County Relay for Life organizers made the decision to combine the cities to create one Relay for Life event in Pittsburg. “The idea to merge the cities came about to cut overhead costs, allowing the most money to be donated back to the American Cancer Society,” said Jamie Rackley, co-lead of Relay for Life of the Delta. “Also, the merging of cities in the county brings our communities together, creating one super relay. Last year, we were honored to celebrate 140 survivors and welcomed over 800 registered participants.” The event is a community-oriented fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, with the mission of raising money for cancer research, treatment and prevention. Participants take shifts walking in shifts for 24 hours in honor of those who have succumbed to cancer, survived or are fighting the disease. The Delta relay begins at 10 a.m. with the opening ceremony, where survivors and supporters of the fight to end cancer will be honored. To follow will be the Survivor/ Caregiver Walk, when survivors and caregivers take laps around the track as others cheer on their determination and strength. After-

ward, the full event kicks into gear, and all attendees are encouraged to walk the track to symbolize the continued fight against cancer. At 9 p.m., attendees will light luminarias in a ceremony that honors family and friends who have lost their battles with cancer, and as symbols of support for survivors as well as those still fighting. The closing ceremony at 9:30 a.m. the following day celebrates the accomplishments of the day before and aims to raise awareness about the disease and ways to continue involvement in the cause. In addition to raising cancer awareness, people come to Relay for Life of the Delta because it is family-friendly, free and a lot of fun. This year, Relay for Life of the Delta includes several activities to increase fundraising and entertainment.

“We will have a kid zone full of games and activities, live music, food, raffles and so much more,” said Rackley. “Just a few of the bands performing will be Project 4, Whiskey Slough, American Made and Samantha Vaughn.” According to Rackley, all proceeds from raffles, food and on-site fundraisers will go to the American Cancer Society. Funds are also raised through pledges from family members and friends of the participants. “Relay For Life is so special because it brings everyone together to fight cancer and support one another, and it gives people a platform to make a tangible difference in their community,” said Anh Nguyen, community development man-

ager for Relay for Life of the Delta. “Relay For Life is a 24-hour event to show the strength of our community, and remind us that ‘cancer never sleeps; neither do we.’” Relay for Life of the Delta provides a sense of belonging, support and community for survivors and caregivers. “Whether you are a survivor, a caregiver or a friend, we all have been affected by cancer, and all have a story,” said Rackley. “Some come to celebrate those that have fought and won; some come to remember those they’ve lost, while others come hoping for a cure. Regardless of the reason, the strength and inspiration you experience at Relay, talking to others that have been affected by this horrible disease, is indescribable. It’s truly a moving experience.” Nguyen emphasizes the impact of Relay for Life of the Delta in Contra Costa County. “The fight to end cancer and support cancer research is so important, and this event allows the community to participate in these efforts,” said Nguyen. Relay for Life of the Delta will last 24 hours, from June 22 to 23, starting at 10 a.m. and ending at the same time the following morning. The event will be held at Los Medanos College, 2700 E.

Police department peddles bike patrol by Dawnmarie Fehr Correspondent

The Brentwood Police Department (BPD) has brought back its bike patrol program after a 10-year hiatus. Managed by Sergeant Eric Wernholm and led by Detective Joe Nunemaker, the program includes six officers who have been certified by the International Police Mountain Bike Association (IPMBA), a nationally recognized program. Wernholm, who was part of the department’s bicycle patrol team before it faded away a decade ago, credits Nunemaker’s enthusiasm with bringing the program back. “Detective Nunemaker came across (the IPMBA) trainer coarse and approached the administration and myself with the desire to become an instructor for bicycle officers,” Wernholm said. Nunemaker transferred to Brentwood five years ago from his old department in Virginia, where he was part of that agency’s bike patrol team. His experience with bike patrol had been positive, and he hoped to bring the benefits of more focused patrol to his new community. Brentwood’s administration reacted positively to his plan and the rest was just logistics. Nunemaker attended an IPMBA training course in October of last year and began training Brentwood officers shortly thereafter. “To qualify to move forward, our offi-

safety measures by flocking to social media, commending the department for patrolling areas like trails, where patrol cars cannot go. “There’s a huge benefit to bicycle patrol, it’s not just to crawl around and find criminals,” Wernholm said. “It’s about getting out in the community, and it’s been well received by citizens and business owners when they see us out on the bikes.” The department is currently using Fugi

mountain bikes, but Nunemaker hopes to purchase bikes designed for police patrol. He said patrol bikes are stronger in the back, where officers will carry most of their gear. Though they wear a modified uniform while on the bikes, the officers will carry the same amount of gear on their person that they would normally: Their bikes are equipped with a basic medical kit, lights and sirens, a battery pack and forms. Short-term goals for the team are to increase certified officers and the number of hours they are patrolling. “I’ve seen the benefits of bike patrol in the community,” Nunemaker said. “It’s great for furthering community relationships and gives us another way to enforce the law, with the advantage of going where a patrol car can’t.” Since April, pairs of officers on bikes have been seen all over Brentwood at all hours of the day. Nunemaker said he enjoys patrolling on the bike and the change of scenery that comes with it. “I like it a lot compared to being in a car,” he said. “It’s a nice change, gets you a little physical exertion and gives you a different perspective of our environment and the job that we are doing. It’s nice to have different perspective so we can do our job better.” For more information on the Brentwood Police Department’s bike patrol team, call the department’s non-emergency line at 925-634-6911.

Donation helps Liberty High Custom, classic fund weight room equipment car show coming by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer

Global building materials company CEMEX is well known for providing products for building foundations. The company’s recent act, however, will create a different type of foundation for Brentwood’s Liberty High School. CEMEX’s $10,000 donation to the Lions Athletic Boosters Club lays the groundwork for the school to procure fresh equipment for its new weight room. “We need to fill that weight room with something, and thankfully CEMEX came through with some money,” said Liberty High School Athletic Director Ryan Partridge. The donation will cover a portion of the estimated $50,000 in equipment costs. Weightlifting classes and sports squads will utilize the facility, expected to be built under the stadium’s stands. “CEMEX is deeply rooted in California, and we are passionate about building a better future in the communities where we live and operate,” the company said in a statement provided to The Press. “We wanted to show support for the Brentwood community and Bay Area by helping build a better future for students at Liberty High School.” The future center will be a boon to the campus, replacing an admittedly old, rickety center housed inside a double-wide trailer situated an inconvenient distance from where Lions sports squads practice — which, at times, involves weight training.

to Discovery Bay

“ With a new facility, we hope it will motivate students to take the classes, motivate students to get in the weight room more and stay healthy.

Ryan Partridge, Liberty High School athletic director “With a new facility, we hope it will motivate students to take the classes, motivate students to get in the weight room more and stay healthy,” Partridge said. CEMEX officials said they strive to better the communities they serve, and are pleased with Liberty’s decision to use the funds for the weight room. “We are thrilled with the idea because it will help each student athlete at the school and can free up money for other purposes,” the company’s statement read. Partridge said the center could open as soon as September, although the school is still seeking funds to fill the room’s remaining needs. “We don’t want to go cheap on something brand new,” he said. “It can easily be $100,000. It can be less if we do less, or more if we do more.” Anyone interested in donating to the cause can email Partridge at partridger@luhsd.net.

The Discovery Bay Kustoms and Klassics Car Show is coming to town June 22. This fun event is an opportunity for all car enthusiasts to share their cherished rides, and every type of car is welcome. Presented by A&A Auto Parts, Celebrity Klassics and the Discovery Bay Community Foundation, the car show takes place by the Boardwalk Grill in Discovery Bay, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The organizers wish to remind the public that if they think their car is something special, chances are many others will too. Whether considering exhibiting a vehicle (a $35 entry fee is required to exhibit) or simply appreciate classic cars and custom rides, all are encouraged to join their friends and neighbors in the spirit of motoring camaraderie. There will be goodie bags, music, food, top-10 awards and more. An after-show get-together is scheduled in Walnut Grove at the Ryde Hotel, right on the Sacramento River. The hotel, banquet room and all 32 rooms have been secured for the night for those who sign up. The following morning, a Sunday brunch will be available for attendees to enjoy together before parting ways. Note that the $35 entry fee goes up after June 10. Only 150 vehicles may register. To participate in the post-show gathering on the river, reserve a room at the Ryde Hotel by contacting the hotel manager at 916776-1318 or emailing info@rydehotel.com.

Seen in Cancun PAINT KITCHEN CABINETS?

If your kitchen cabinets are outdated or in poor shape, that can really bring down the sales price of your home. A full replacement of your cabinets can be quite expensive, and you may not get your money back. A less expensive, but still not cheap, option is to have them re-surfaced with a laminate that looks like real wood, and this may include new cabinet doors. Another option that’s even less expensive is to have them painted or refinished. If you paint, you can obviously change the color to a more trendy color. If you refinish, you are stuck with the original color because it’s just a matter of some light sanding and then applying a new clear finish over the top so they look better. Refinishing can sometimes be your cheapest option, but not always. So if your cabinets are good quality and a nice quality wood but the finish is looking poor due to use or water stains, and you are trying to minimize your costs, refinishing may be the way to go. If you’d like a reference to a good local compa-

ny that I’ve used in the past, contact me. If you decide painting is the way you want to go, I’d consider hiring a professional. I know the people on YouTube make it look SO easy, but it’s not! Painting cabinets are MUCH harder than painting smooth walls. Poorly painted cabinets can be just as bad as the originals! The preparation can be very daunting. First you have to remove all the doors, drawer fronts and hardware and label and track them. Fill in holes and gouges. Degrease, sand, and then sand some more, And I’m talking HAND sanding so you can sand into the grain. Then apply a prime coat, then paint. And then there are the errant smudges or random hair that mean you have to repaint something, maybe more than once. If you have questions about real estate, call me at (925) 240-MOVE (6683).

so the art of pottery can be passed on from generation to generation. The studio also strives to host educational opportunities through on and off-site field trips, so individuals of all ages, especially children, can learn the history and process of creating and painting pottery. Other primary goals are to give back to the community that supports them and raise awareness for a variety of programs. The community of special needs and those living with congenital heart defects are especially important to the studio. Dylan, the Mad Potter’s grandson, has Down syndrome, and his granddaughter, Savannah, was born with Tetralogy of Fallot and has developed severe pulmonary valve regurgitation. The Mad Potter has worked with numerous groups over the past years.

They include Working Wonders, Liberty Union High School District Gateway Program, the Library Art Grant program, The Paint Program, Revitalize adult day program, WeeCare, Golden Hills Christian School, Cornerstone Christian School, 3.21 Life +1 Project, as well as girl scout and brownie troops to help complete their pottery badges. Illers has also hosted many organizations to help with fundraising, including World Down Syndrome Awareness Day and Congenital Heart Defect Awareness. In his spare time, he enjoys family, camping and boating. Brentwood Art Society along with city, county and district dignitaries will be present to award Illers with this distinctive honor at the Art, Wine & Jazz Festival at Brentwood’s City Park, on Sat., June 22, at approximately 2 p.m. on center stage.

Puppet show at community center Caterpillar Puppets will be performing an “Itty Bitty Variety Show” at the Discovery Bay Community Center, 1601 Discovery Bay Blvd. on Wednesday, June 26 at 4 p.m. Audience members will meet

Contra Costa County libraries serve up lunch during summer break The Contra Costa County Library is serving free lunches to kids at eight library locations in the county this summer in an effort to prevent a summer nutrition gap. Many low-income children face nutrient deficiencies when schools close for summer break. “The ideal learning environment for children is one that includes a nutritious meal that allows them to focus on reading instead of hunger,” said Supervisor Karen Mitchoff. “The library can help by providing the space and the food to help them succeed.” Lunch at the Library is a project of the California Library Association, supported by the California State Library with funds from the State of California, to unite libraries and summer meal providers and keep kids healthy and engaged when school is out. In addition to lunch, the libraries will offer a variety of free programs, including board games, arts and crafts, musical performances, Legos, movies and more.

Lunches are free for kids and teens 18 and under. For more information about the Lunch at the Library program visit, ccclib. org/summer. Lunch at the Library locations and schedule: • Antioch 501 W. 18th St., Monday through Thursday, from noon to 1 p.m., June 10 to July 25 For more information, call 925-757-9224. • Pittsburg 80 Power Ave., Tuesday through Friday, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., June 11 to Aug. 2 For more information, call 925-427-8390. Meals for Lunch at the Library are provided by the Antioch Unified School District, Mount Diablo Unified School District, John Swett Unified School District, West Contra Costa Unified School District, Martinez Unified School District and Pittsburg Unified School District. For more information about the statewide Lunch at the Library program, visit www.lunchatthelibrary.org.

Antioch’s community centers are ready to help residents beat the heat. The Antioch Senior Center/Nick Rodriquez Community Center, 415 W. Second St., is a recognized cooling station and open to residents Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Antioch Community Center, 4703 Lone Tree Way, is open to residents Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., and until 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

for our clients that have automatic deposits or bill-pay set up with their current account number. When our clients are considering transferring their accounts into their trust, we generally provide the following options: Option #1: Work with your banks to transfer your accounts. To transfer an account, the financial institution will generally require a short application that must be signed and notarized. Just remember to check the account number to make sure your bank is transferring your account, not opening a new one. Option #2: Open a new account in the name of your trust. If you are considering opening a new bank account, this is the easiest option. However, be very careful with automatic deposits and bill pay that may be associated with old account numbers. Sadly, we see many clients who have experienced periods of incapacity prior to death. However, those clients that have transferred their accounts into their trust greatly reduce the burden on their families by allowing them to easily access their trust bank accounts. If you have any questions, I see people Monday through Friday for a free, 30-minute consultation in my Walnut Creek and Brentwood offices.

LOT #11

When I meet with clients, we always discuss whether bank accounts should go into their revocable living trust. The answer is always yes! Here’s why: Reason #1: The most important reason is for incapacity planning. If your accounts are in your trust, a co-trustee can access the accounts to assist with your care if you experience a period of incapacity. As our clients need additional assistance, we encourage our clients to appoint a co-trustee who can access their trust bank accounts to pay bills and provide support. Reason #2: You will also need to have a trust bank account if (or when) you or a successor trustee sells trust property. If you wish to sell property held in your trust, the escrow company will require that the funds be deposited into a trust bank account. Many clients often ask why they can’t use a power of attorney to access non-trust bank accounts. While a power of attorney can be used to access non-trust bank accounts, financial institutions are often reluctant to allow someone to use the power of attorney to access an account numerous times. After several requests to withdraw funds, the financial institution may require a conservatorship to continue accessing the account. When advising clients on the process of transferring accounts into their trust, we warn that this process needs to be done carefully to ensure that the accounts are transferred correctly. For example, we have recently discovered that some financial institutions are opening new accounts rather than transferring the existing account into the trust. This has created problems

Letters

to the

DB property owners deprived of right to vote Editor: In November 1996, California voters passed Proposition 218, the “Right to Vote on Taxes Act.” This constitutional amendment protects taxpayers by limiting the methods by which local governments can create or increase taxes, fees and charges without taxpayer consent. Proposition 218 requires voter approval prior to imposition or increase of general taxes, assessments, and certain user fees. Proposition 218 also gives voters the power to reduce or repeal any existing local tax, assessment or charge through the initiative process. The Town of Discovery Bay CSD Board has not complied with Proposition 218 in the years 2006 through 2018 for water and wastewater rate increases. Proposition 218 clearly states that property owners should receive a notice of a proposed charge with an enclosed ballot not less than 45 days prior to a public hearing. At the public hearing, ballots are counted, and protests are heard. The proposed charge is either approved or denied based on the property owner’s two-thirds ballot count. To date, notification

Editor

has not been received for the proposed 2019 water and wastewater rate increases. The Town of Discovery Bay CSD Board established the Discovery Bay Public Financing Authority in June 2012. This allows the Town of Discovery Bay CSD board to issue revenue bonds without a vote of the property owners. In 2012, they issued a $14.1 million-dollar revenue bond, and in 2017, they issued an $8.9 million-dollar revenue bond. Discovery Bay property owners are burdened with bond payback until 2047. Without the right to vote, this is taxation without representation. Frank J. Visintin Discovery Bay

Councilmembers have lost my vote

Editor: I am dismayed with the archaic comments and attitudes of some Oakley council members regarding the LGBT Pride proclamation. LGBT Pride is about showing love and support for our neighbors, parents, or children in the LGBT community. Kudos to Mayor Alaura, but Hardcastle and Pope have lost my vote. Desire Medlen Oakley

Family Matters

by Silky Sahnan, esq. How To Find The Right Family Law Attorney Are you thinking about hiring an attorney for your family law needs? If so, this article will help you make that decision as you take your next steps. The biggest items to consider when seeking an experienced family law attorney are: The Expense: Cost can be a big concern when hiring an attorney. Make sure you are aware of all legal fees and establish a financial plan around them. Consider working with the other party on attorney’s fees. Special Circumstances: Are there are any unusual or special aspects of your situation – for example, if your divorce involves dual business ownership or perhaps own several properties together. An attorney who

has experience with cases involving these issues is important to seek out. Comfort Level: It is so important you feel comfortable with your attorney. Your attorney’s job is to advise you and to represent your best interests. If you are not comfortable with your attorney, working together will make it very difficult for your attorney to do their job well. Ideally, you’ll both be in agreement regarding how your case is pursued and what the outcome will be. Your attorney’s experience level may contribute to your comfort. The best way to determine if an attorney is right for your matter is through a consultation. The Law Offices of Silky Sahnan offer a free consultation, so give them a call at 925-276-0789 or visit legalservicesca.com. – Advertisement

East County baseball stars are MLB draftees by Kyle Szymanski Staff Writer

East County hit a triple in last week’s Major League Baseball draft. Freedom High star shortstop Kyren Paris, who recently completed his senior high school season, was drafted by Major League Baseball’s Los Angeles Angels in the second round (55th pick); the New York Yankees drafted former Heritage High and St. Mary’s College designated hitter and pitcher Kevin Milam in the 14th round (435th pick); and the Atlanta Braves nabbed former Liberty High, Butte College and University of Washington outfielder Connor Blair in the 15th round (457th pick). “Obviously the first day you have the big names, like Kyren, and we were extremely happy for him, and to see Kevin and a couple of the other guys names pop up there was real exciting,” said Heritage head coach Kevin Brannan. Paris, the 6-foot, 167-pound shortstop, officially signed with the Angels for $1.4 million Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Times, citing a club official who was not authorized to publicly comment. Paris was slated to begin his professional career Wednesday with the Angels’ rookie affiliate in Arizona. “I am super excited to be down here in Anaheim,” Paris said on the Angels’ television broadcast Tuesday night. “Everything is squared away, so I am looking forward to going out and playing, getting better, and one day playing here and helping the team win.” Paris, who doesn’t turn 18 until November, entered the draft as one of the better shortstop prospects, and the 50th best overall player, according to MLB.com. He hit .312 with 83 hits, 34 RBIs and 71 runs in 91 games over four seasons for the Falcons, according to Maxpreps.com, and is known as a standout defensive player. “This is awesome,” said Freedom High head coach

Kevin Milam, a 2016 Heritage graduate and recent member of the St. Mary’s College baseball team, was drafted in the 14th round of the Major League Baseball draft by the New York Yankees. Ken Evanson. “He’s always been a hard worker, a great teammate and a great person to coach. “I couldn’t be happier for him.” Meanwhile, Milam, fresh off an impressive three-year campaign with St. Mary’s College, is expected to sign with the Yankees. Milam, a 2016 Heritage graduate, did not respond to

requests for comment. The 6-foot, 200-pound two-way star hit .308 at St. Mary’s, with 24 home runs, 43 doubles, 127 RBIs and a .414 on-base percentage in three seasons, while also compiling a 13-9 pitching record with a 3.99 ERA, 182 strikeouts and 11 saves in 180.1 innings pitched. “Kevin is arguably one of the best baseball players ever to wear a Gael uniform,” said outgoing St. Mary’s head coach Eric Valenzuela in a release by the school. “He has hit in the middle of our lineup and pitched in a significant role all three years for us. He has been a part of lots of wins. I am so proud of him.” Brannan, Milam’s high school coach, was also quick to praise his former star Patriot. “It couldn’t have happened to a nicer kid,” Brannan said. “He busted his butt so hard. He was one of those players that had ability and put a little work ethic behind it, and it’s pretty nice to see it pay off for him.” Blair, an outfielder who graduated from Liberty High in 2016 before moving on to Butte College and the University of Washington, hit .291 with eight home runs and 27 RBIs in 36 games as a junior for the Huskies in an injury-shortened single season. He could not be reached for comment at press time. It’s unclear if he’s signed with the Braves. His selection last week quickly lit up the Liberty Baseball Twitter account. “Liberty Baseball alum Connor Blair was a stud at Liberty, then was a stud at Butte College, then was a stud at the University of Washington and now is going to be a stud with the Atlanta Braves,” it read, shortly after his selection. “I’m very excited for Connor and his family,” said Huskies coach Lindsay Meggs in a University of Washington press release. “While Connor’s season was cut short due to injury, he put up some good numbers. Connor is raw but very talented and as he figures this thing out, he could turn some heads.”

Former Falcon speeds into the winners circle by Michael Dixon Correspondent

During the spring, Chester “Buddy” Kniss won his first main event race at the Antioch Speedway. Now with the season several weeks old, Kniss, who recently graduated from Freedom High School, is in first place in the A Modified Division. Kniss has enjoyed the way his season has gone. This is his second year racing A Modifieds, or A Mods, which he attributes much of the success to. “I’m thinking it’s going pretty good so far. We’re leading the points for Antioch. We’ve just had a bunch of really consistent finishes,” he said. “I’m really getting a feel of the car and the track conditions; I’m getting familiar with things.” Kniss’ success this season comes on the heels of a very strong offseason. In November, Kniss won the Young Guns race in Las Vegas, which pits 20 of the best 19-and-under racers in the country

against one another. While he’s relatively new to A Mods, Kniss has a lot of racing experience. He began racing outlaw karts in Dixon when he was 8. “It clicked with him really quick,” Kniss’ mother, Beverly, said. “His dream has always been to race. My dad raced, his dad still races, obviously he’s taken

after that.” In the short term, Kniss’ goal is to win the season. He will also attend Los Medanos College. While there, he plans to continue racing, play on the baseball team and get his welding certificate. When he finishes college, Kniss hopes to continue racing in the East. There, he’d have more opportunities to

race, possibly including road racing. “I’d love to go back east, travel around and race with better competition,” Kniss said. “They race three times a week, at least. I race just once a week now and there’s a lot of downtime. You really can’t get more experience. I’ll get better going against better people. Just traveling a bit will make it more fun.”

Name: Ryan Jackson School: Heritage High School Year: Junior (senior in the fall) Sport: Baseball Coach: Kevin Brannan About: Ryan Jackson grew up in a baseball home. His older brother, who pitches for Los Medanos College, introduced Ryan to the sport at a young age. By the time he was 8 years old, Ryan was playing competitively. “I tried other sports when I was younger, but baseball really stuck with me and I’ve pursued it,” Ryan said. “I really love it.” At 12, Ryan gave up other sports and focused on his pitching and hitting. Now he spends his time improving his skills with lessons, batting practice and gym time. He believes consistency is key when playing baseball and said he keeps working hard to do well on the field. During his few breaks from the sport, Ryan enjoys spending time outdoors with his family and friends boating, fishing and hunting. He also enjoys

his film analysis class at school. Future Plans: Going into his senior year, Ryan hopes to catch the attention of a PAC-12 school. “I would love to play in college,” he said. “I’m not sure what I want to major in . . . I want to play baseball professionally, that’s the ultimate goal.” Coach’s Quote: “We knew coming into this year that Ryan was a phenomenal infielder, someone who was going to get the job done at the plate and be a leader in the lineup,” Coach Kevin Brannan said. “He has turned so many heads this spring with his performances against the best teams across the state.”

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can

receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 800-280-2832 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site http:// www.qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-19-849843-CL. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale.

Fellows winners named Class of 2019 The Antioch Schools Education Foundation has chosen the winners of the Mary Allan Fellows Award. Selecting the fellows was a rigorous and daunting process, and all nominees should consider it a great honor to have been nominated.

Congratulations to the following teachers: Fellows: Jose Cumagun and Bruce Ellison, Deer Valley High; Marlein Jeans, Sutter Elementary; DarVisa Marshall, Antioch Middle, AUSD Teacher of the Year; Keil Olff, Deer Valley High Finalists: Erich Bartel, Park Middle; Ashley Garcia, Antioch Middle; Kathi Libbey, Live Oak High; Tim Mays, Antioch High Rebecca Quinones, Antioch High Semifinalists: Shirley Bull, Turner Elementary; Mary Jane Grove, Jack London Elementary; Pat MacBeath, Mno Grant Elementary; Amelia Nevis, Deer Valley High Raymond Ochoa, Park Middle l; Vicki

O’Connor, Dozier-Libbey Medical High; Natillie Petersen, Park Middle; Julie Verhoek, Sutter Elementary This year’s speaker is Samy D’Amico, a teacher, principal and vice principal in the AUSD for 17 years. D’Amico was born in Argentina and came to America as a second-grader after living in Peru. Since then, he has embraced his background and its cultural richness, keeping it at the forefront when interacting with students. Hearing his story will be a real treat. Fellows, finalists and semifinalists will be guests of the Antioch Schools Education Foundation at the Mary Allan Fellows Award Dinner, Sept. 17, at Lone Tree Golf and Event Center from 5 to 7 p.m., with a no-host social hour from 4 to 5 p.m. All teachers are welcome to attend.

priority.” Curl was sentenced to 300 days in county jail, three years felony probation, a 10-year stay-away order from Freedom High School and all schools within the Liberty Union High School District (LUHSD) and fines. The sentencing also included a criminal protective order that names all victims in the case. The terms of the disposition also allow law enforcement officials to search Curl’s computers, cell phone, tablets or other electronic devices for five years. Restitution will also be paid to the LUHSD. “I think it is difficult to put a value on the impact this

“The thing people have to understand is the council does not have a choice of not taking it to the voters,” Vina said. “Some people are saying ‘don’t let this happen.’ Well, they don’t have a choice. The signatures have been verified, the voters have a right to speak.” Early plans call for the proposed project to roll out in five phases over 20 to 25 years, featuring up to 1,920 age-restricted, active-adult homes, about 480 market-rate units, multiple recreation centers, and possibly an outdoor amphitheater, winery, farm-to-table restaurant and bar, and an estimated 225 acres of permanent agricultural and open-space lands, including vineyards and olive groves. The proposed changes, however, have met with intense opposition from residents, concerned that the development could adversely affect area police, fire and medical services, traffic, schools, hospitals, air pollution, noise and a host of other qualityof-life factors. Brentwood resident Kathy Griffin has launched a citizen-action group, the Alliance for a Better Brentwood, to protect the city’s community feel and farmlands. The group has distributed 12,000 flyers, thus far, that “tell the truth about the project,”

event had on our community,” said Oakley Police Chief Eric Christensen. “We routinely work closely with the District Attorney’s Office and always appreciate the opportunity to partner with them, the FBI, Brentwood PD and the Sheriff’s Office. Some good detectives did some really good work, which led to a good outcome. Everyone did their part and this is a result of that effort.” Charges against Curl were the result of a two-month investigation by the Oakley Police Department, Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office and FBI into a series of threats made on social media. The incident began in September when several underage girls were contacted by an unknown

Griffin said. “Everyone is sitting in ridiculous traffic now, and we have no fire and EMS service, jobs, nor any of the retail and economic development promised,” Griffin said. “If we continue to allow overwhelming housing growth to occur before our services, economic development and jobs catch up, our city will run out of money.” The Nunns contend that the project will address concerns and benefit the community. Bob Nunn reported this week that the group is already in discussions with the fire district to address the agency’s obvious resource shortage that could be further strained with new development. The district’s three current stations cover 249 square miles and an estimated 119,000 residents. The proposed project incorporates several roadway improvements, including extending American Avenue, which currently terminates in front of Adams Middle School, to form an additional intersection with Balfour Road. Widening of Balfour Road is also listed in the plans, from near its intersection with American Avenue to the southwestern corner of the project site, and Deer Valley Road safety improvements would also be included, according to project documents.

person via social media who threatened to rape and kill them. The same subject later threatened to commit a Columbine-like shooting at Freedom High and then threatened to murder the school principal. In one social media post, Curl, who used a software program to mask his online identity, stated he was 95% sure he would not be caught. Investigators identified Curl as the suspect and obtained an arrest warrant. He was arrested on Nov. 20 in Austin, where he was attending the University of Texas. Curl was charged Nov. 28 with stalking, making criminal threats and threatening a school official, and was extradited to California in December. He has remained in custody since his arrest.

“We want to solve problems to make it a better situation with our project than it is without our project,” Bob said. Ron noted that the required construction would generate local jobs, and that senior communities generate reduced traffic compared to conventional housing projects, garner money for schools without adding children, add disposable income to the community and could attract improved medical services. Opponents say many of the project’s promises are already included in the city’s long-range general plan — including the American Avenue extension — and that the developer’s 193-page proposal actually cancels and supersedes many of the city’s general plan goals and actions. For example, the city’s plan to eventually extend Hillcrest Avenue to Balfour Road would be changed by the project, with access from Antioch to Brentwood restricted by Hillcrest becoming a gated road. “The reality is, why any developer should be rewarded monetarily at the expense of the citizens’ quality of life,” said Griffin. “It’s not about the people they want to attract to live here — it’s about those who live here now and who will buy the already-planned housing, what we

need and want, and those of us who will pay the price for unplanned sprawl.” Going forward, the Nunns said the development group aims to soon ramp up their public relations efforts to inform residents about the project and address any concerns. “It still a community project,” Bob Nunn said. “We want to reach out to the community to make sure they like the direction we are going.” Meanwhile, Griffin said her group will vehemently urge the council to wait until 2020 to put the measure on the ballot, allowing time to further study the effects of the potential changes. “We are well organized and we have a great leadership committee in charge,” Griffin said. “And we are all brainstorming right now to craft and manage our strategy. We will continue to fight what we consider an egregious project by connecting and educating our fellow residents on what this initiative actually entails and its negative repercussions.” For more information on the proposed project, visit bit.ly/thepressnet_project, and  vineyardsatdeercreek.org.

Foolproof tips for picking wedding flowers H AY L E Y F I N E T T I

W

hen planning for your special day, the pressure of making your dream a reality can be stressful. Here are some

tips that will help make picking floral arrangements an item you can check off your wedding to-do list. Veronica Ruvalcaba, owner of Brentwood Florist, said there are two factors couples should be most concerned about when considering flower arrangements. “The first thing to think about is if the flowers the bride wants are in season. Not all flowers are available yearround,” Ruvalcaba said. “The second thing to consider is budget. All bouquets and arrangements have different prices, depending on flowers selected,” she said. “For couples on a budget, our tip would be to be open-minded when consulting a florist. Mention your budget and colors and let them tell you what is available.” Rona Hullen, owner of R Flowers and Baskets, advised couples on a tight budget to limit the quantity of floral arrangements presented at the wedding. “Reuse the ceremony flowers at the reception, stick to a few types of flowers, be open-minded and flexible, and let your florist suggest some less expensive flowers that might give you the same look and feel you are hoping for,” Hullen said. Ruvalcaba and Hullen said the cost of flowers for weddings varies depending on the type of flower chosen and the number of flower types desired. “Your cost is lower the fewer flower types you pick. The bigger the variety and the type of flowers make all the

Choosing flowers for your wedding can seem daunting, but you can get the look you want without breaking the bank. pricing difference,” Hullen said. “Wedding flower cost ranges between $1,600 to $3,000. The price difference is based on the type of flowers requested and number and size of bouquets and/or arrangements needed,” Ruvalcaba said. For budgeting couples having summer weddings, Ruvalcaba said roses are a great option because they are

reasonably priced and hold up well in the heat. In addition to which flowers are in season and within budget, it is a good idea for couples to look into trending styles in 2019. Ruvalcaba and Hullen said bohemian-style floral arrangements are most popular and highly requested this year. Ruvalcaba said soon-to-be-married couples should come to Brentwood Florist to choose their floral arrangements because they care about their customers and are experts at what they do. “There are many options to choose from in regards to wedding flowers, but we always recommend to go with the professionals,” she said. “We have been in the business for over 35 years and take pride in our work. We work with all ideas and budgets. From big to small, we want to help make all your floral dreams come true. You have only one chance to make it perfect, and we will create the vision you are dreaming of.” Hullen encourages bridal couples to consider R Flowers and Baskets for their wedding, because at their shop, every couple is special. “You will not be just another floral job for me,” she said. “I will work diligently to meet your every expectation. I am passionate about my job and will go the extra mile for all my customers. I love giving each bride her own unique floral look. I also have many grand table arrangement containers and candelabra that I rent for free to my floral clients if I have the opportunity to be their florist.” Brentwood Florist is located at 8335 Brentwood Blvd. Ste. E, in Downtown Brentwood. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. R Flowers and Baskets is located at 2126 Prestwick Drive in Discovery Bay.

Show off your toned arms on the big day

S

hopping for a wedding gown is a tradition that follows shortly after the engagement has taken

place and the ceremony date is set. Some women have very clear ideas of which type of silhouette and features they desire in a wedding gown, while others are open to suggestion. Most brides-to-be hope to look their most radiant in this customtailored creation. According to Kim Forrest, the editor of WeddingWire, an online marketplace for wedding-related items, strapless dresses are the standard for wedding attire, and that trend is unlikely to change anytime soon. Style directors for Martha Stewart Weddings agree, saying that roughly 75 percent of wedding dresses are strapless, although some alternative necklines are starting to become more popular. With so much attention directed their way, brides might look for ways to tone their upper bodies in advance of the big day. Arm-, chest- and shoulder-toning exercises can be part of a strong fitness regimen. The upper arms and the shoulders have no fewer than nine primary muscles that will need firming for brides to make an impact while walking down the aisle. Tame flabby areas with exercise. According to the University of

The upper arms and the shoulders have no fewer than nine primary muscles that will need firming for brides to make an impact while walking down the aisle.

Connecticut, the upper arms are a part of the female body where fat tends to be stored, along with the hips and thighs. Toning this area may take a combination of diet and exercise. Begin with the biceps, which are the front muscles of the arms directly above the elbows. Biceps are one of the stronger arm muscles, and bicep curls can help strengthen biceps further. Shape magazine suggests performing 12 repetitions of three hand posi-

tions, palms up, palms down and thumbs to the side, to really work this area. The triceps are a single muscle that have three sections. Doing triceps kickbacks, bench dips and triangle push-ups can really activate these muscles and cause them to become stronger and more toned. Strengthening and elongating shoulder muscles may take a combination of exercises that work not only the deltoids (muscles

surrounding the shoulders), but also the chest and back as well. Arm raises, both with arms extended to the side and in front of the body, can work these areas well. Brides who want to tone up can speak with a fitness instructor at a nearby gym to learn the various ways to firm their arms, chests and backs in advance of their wedding days. – Courtesy Metro Creative

“Couples should make sure they are happy with every part of the venue, including the look, food, beverages, staff and set up,” said Allyson Westlund, office manager at Lone Tree Golf & Event Center. Westlund added that couples choosing Lone Tree Golf & Event Center can feel confident their ceremony will be budget friendly and include great food and service. “All our packages feature amazing food,” Westlund said. “We focus on the catering and venue to create the vision you are hoping for.” Jun Gandia, recreation coordinator at the Brentwood Community Center said couples getting married there have the flexibility to design the wedding of their dreams. “We have a beautiful downtown park and a brand new gazebo where couples can hold their ceremony.

is available to rent for wedding receptions,” said Gandia. “We allow couples the option to choose their own vendors and really personalize their event.” Couples may also be interested in hearing about popular wedding trends to get ideas for their wedding ceremony and reception. “Some of the trends I’ve seen are people adding game areas for cocktail hour, such as giant Jenga or giant Connect Four,” Gandia said. “I’ve seen mini food trucks that offer ice cream or donuts as end-of-the-night eats. I’ve even seen late-night taco trucks.” Westlund and Gandia ensure that bridal couples on a budget can conserve costs while still having their dream wedding. “For couples on a tight budget, create do-it-yourself projects for décor,” said Gandia. “Book vendors at least 12 months in advance to lock in prices. I’ve seen a lot of weddings held on Fridays or Sundays to help save money. I’ve even seen weddings done mid-week.” Westlund agreed, noting that the Lone Tree Golf & Event Center holds just as many weddings on Fridays and Sundays as it does on Saturdays. Westlund said the cost of renting a wedding venue varies, depending on the number of guests, food selection, bar and beverage, linen upgrades and other factors. “Couples should always ask if additional insurance needs to be purchased or if there

is an additional fee to use vendors not on the preferred vendor list,” Westlund said. Lone Tree Golf & Event Center offers several packages and amenities to make your wedding special. “We have three wedding packages that include food, beverages, linen, tables, chairs, a dance floor and more,” Westlund said. “Our venue is beautiful, and we provide amazing food and service. We work hard to deliver the wedding you are hoping for at a cost you can afford.” The Brentwood Community Center also has a variety of options for couples to consider for their special day. “We have a hall with a large dance floor, a commercial kitchen, along with beautiful areas downtown and in the park that are great for snapping radiant photos to capture long-lasting memories of your special day,” Gandia said. Lone Tree Golf & Event Center is located at 4800 Golf Course Road in Antioch. Hours are daily from 6 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. For more information, call 925-706-4232, email catering@lonetreegolfcourse.com, or visit lonetreegolfcourse.com.

Second from page 5B These tips can help the process along:

Dress it up Brides need not eschew white if they prefer to wear it for their second weddings. White, cream, ivory or other shades are perfectly acceptable. Also, brides can make their gowns as lavish or as simplistic as they desire. The length and style of the dress should reflect the formality and scope of the event.

Couples who have been married before may want to set this new occasion apart from their previous weddings. Brides Magazine experts suggest discussing previous celebrations and what can be done differently this time around. Couples can use this opportunity to get to know each other more intimately by personalizing their festivities.

Don’t feel beholden to intimate affairs Second weddings tend to be more intimate, as guest lists tend to be smaller and couples tying the knot again may prefer more intimacy and less hustle and bustle. But couples should not avoid inviting people simply because second weddings are typically small affairs. Invite as many friends and family as you want and as your budget allows.

Set up a registry Established couples may have the household basics already in place, but registries can include fun or entertaining gifts that speak to couples’ interests. These may include home theater systems, fancy cookware, athletic equipment or even funds for travel.

Involve the children Couples who have children can make them a special part of their second wedding celebrations. Kids can play any role in the ceremony, depending on their age. If the second marriage comes after an amicable divorce, couples can invite their former spouses to provide support to their children, so they can feel comfortable in the wedding.

Be prepared The marriage application process is similar the second time around, but additional documents, such as a divorce decree or death certificate, may be necessary. These legal documents will also be needed for men and women who intend to change their last names after getting married. A second marriage deserves as much celebration as the first and gives couples an opportunity to express their love for each other and their appreciation to their friends and families. – Courtesy Metro Creative

Wedding dress fitting guide

B

ecause fashion preferences were once ornate and dependent on precise fits, ready-to-

wear clothing did not become widely accessible until the early 20th century. Such attire is now available in just about any retail store. Because ready-to-wear clothing is so readily available, the average person may be unfamiliar with custom-made or tailored items. In fact, a couple’s wedding may be the only time in their lives when they require the services of a seamstress or tailor. Fittings are a part of wedding planning, and here’s how brides-to-be can navigate the process of finding and being fitted for a dress. ♦♦ Try on sample gowns The first step is to make your rounds to various gown shops and try on the samples they have available. Most sample sizes will not be the size you wear every day, so expect them to be ill-fitting. Do not be discouraged. Once a gown is chosen, the dress shop will take your measurements and order the gown according to the manufacturer’s sizing guide. Again, this can be shocking, since the size will likely be larger than what you wear in street clothes. Some shops will also order a little larger to allow for adequate tailoring.

♦♦ Schedule the first fitting The first fitting should be anywhere from eight to 12 weeks before the wedding date, according to experts at WeddingWire, an online wedding information provider. This is the time it takes to complete most standard alterations. Complex customizations can take even longer. Brides should also budget a minimum of $500 for alterations, which may or may not be included in the price of the dress. ♦♦ Bring shoes and undergarments Remember to bring along the exact shoes and undergarments you will wear with your gown. A change in shoes, bra OR corset can result in the alterations fitting poorly the next time. Bring these items along to all subsequent fittings. ♦♦ Speak up Martha Stewart Weddings suggests speaking up at fittings if anything is uncomfortable or needs tweaking. Seamstresses are masters at their crafts, but only if they understand the desires of the bride. ♦♦ Check the details The second fitting is designed to check that all issues from the first fitting have been addressed, the gown is comfortable and you can move freely. At the last fitting, ask the maid of honor to come along so that she understands how to bustle or help you handle complicated straps or closures. – Courtesy of Metro Creative
