Development director to step down by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

The Oakley City Council and city staff affectionately refer to themselves as Team Oakley, but the team will soon be down one member, as Community Development Director Rebecca Willis plans to depart at the end of the month. Willis has accepted the position of Calaveras County planning director. Her last day on the job in Oakley is July 30. Willis has been with Team Oakley for six years and has played a part of many key projects in the development of the young city, including annexation of the East Cypress Corridor, certification of the 2007-2014 Housing Element, adoption of the Downtown Specific Plan and most

recently, groundbreaking of the Oakley Generating Station. “It has been my pleasure to be Oakley’s Community Development Director for the past six years and to be part of an amazing transformation of a newly incorporated city to a magnificent place for families in the heart of the Delta,” Willis wrote in her resignation letter. “During my tenure, I have had the privilege of working with many dedicated elected and appointed officials, and many, many colleagues in public and private employment at all levels and in all disciplines.” City Manager Bryan Montgomery announced the news of Willis’ impending departure at the July 12 council meeting, at which time council members took a moment to say goodbye

WILLIS and offer wishes of good luck and success in the future. “We’re going to miss you,” said Councilmember Carol Rios. “You’ve been with us through some crazy times. You helped keep us sane. You walked us

through the process and we appreciate that. Calaveras County is getting one of Oakley’s gems, and I hope they really appreciate you.” As Willis was one of Mayor Jim Frazier’s mentors when he first joined the planning commission, he also offered her a heartfelt farewell, thanking her for her guidance throughout the years. As Willis prepares to depart, the task of finding a replacement has become a priority for Montgomery, who said Willis has been wonderful to work with over the years. “We have her position budgeted, but haven’t decided exactly how to fill it,” Montgomery wrote in an e-mail. “We are restructuring some and always look for savings as we have opportunities.”

Several prominent local politicians gathered this week for a tour of Highway 4 and its Bypass, expressing excitement about the future of jobs and commerce that the improvements will likely bring to East County. The all-star cast of dignitaries to survey the freeway included Congressman Jerry McNerney, assemblywomen Susan Bonilla and Joan Buchanan, Sen. Mark DeSaulnier, representatives for Congressman John Garamendi and Contra Costa County Supervisor Mary Piepho, mayors Jim Frazier of Oakley and Bob Taylor of Brentwood. The politicians gathered at the corner of the Highway 4 Bypass and Sand Creek Road, where an interchange will be built within the next couple of

years, much to the delight of Taylor. “Never in my wildest dreams did I think this project was going to happen,” he said. “Today is a great day to be mayor.” The officials spoke excitedly about the creation of jobs, as local transportation districts are spending roughly $1 billion on the Highway 4 corridor from the Pittsburg/Bay Point BART station through Sand Creek Road – $500 million to widen the freeway to four lanes in each direction and another $500 million for the planned eBART station at Hillcrest Avenue in Antioch. “It’s a great economic stimulus,” said Randell Iwasaki, executive director of the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA), who led the bus tour along the Bypass and freeway. Transportation officials are banking on savings from the

Local teen helps rescue surfer by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

It took him just an instant to realize he was in trouble, but for Tim Gruber it was a life-changing moment. As he was preparing to ride the last wave of the day near Carmel Beach on June 25, the lifelong surfer slipped on a sandbar and fell backward onto the base of his neck. “I lost the use of my arms immediately and I knew it was bad,” said Gruber, 51, formerly of Brentwood. “But I checked my legs and they were OK, so I started kicking my legs, hoping to draw someone’s attention.” But as the former All-American runner tried to swing his leg onto the surfboard to help support his body, the board flipped over, and as the waves continued to wash over him, his hopes faded. “As the water came over me I saw my wife and son’s face and I said a prayer,” said Gruber. “I remember looking up into the sun and then it went dark. It was extremely peaceful and I had no fear. That was the last thing I remember before I woke up in the ambulance.” Help arrived in the form of two teenage boys, one of whom was a family friend staying with the Grubers for the weekend at their home in Santa Cruz. Ryan Coke of Brentwood was on the shore when a woman came over and alerted him to the man floating motionless in the surf. The woman’s son was in the water, making his way toward Gruber, and she asked Coke if he would go and help. “I was scared,” said Coke, 14. “I’m not a very strong swimmer but I went out there to help the other swimmer bring him in. I didn’t even recognize Tim when we got to him because his face was bloated and blue. It wasn’t until we got him back on the beach and people started doing CPR on him that I realized who it was. He looked

Despite their continued efforts at CPR, paramedics on the scene later told Gruber’s wife Teresa that he had been without a pulse for more than 12 minutes. “My sister took the initial phone call,” said Teresa, who was at a baby shower that day. “And she came into

Freedom student takes on transit by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Madison Mills doesn’t ride the bus, but she’s gained a newfound respect for public transportation after attending the American Public Transportation Association’s youth summit in Washington, D.C. The Freedom High School junior was one of 50 high school students selected to partake in a recent five-day, all-expensepaid trip to the nation’s capital to learn about developments in public transportation design and technology that will help shape future advancements in transportation. “A lot of people are under the impression that public transportation is for the poor and disadvantaged, but public transportation is something that should be utilized by everyone because it’s a green way to get wherever you need to go,” Mills said. “The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) is trying to find ways to change people’s perception of public transportation so that more people will take advantage of it and keep their cars off the road.” Mills doesn’t live near a bus stop so she doesn’t take advantage of Tri Delta Transit, but she does take BART when she goes to Oakland to catch an A’s game or to San Francisco to do some sightseeing. The summit heightened her awareness of the advantages of public transportation

Freedom High junior Madison Mills recently met Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood during the American Public Transportation Association’s annual youth summit. and motivated her to use it more. Not only does taking public transit save money on gas; it saves money in general. According APTA, households in the United States could save more than $8,400 every year if they relied more on local bus systems, commuter trains, high-speed rail,

ferries, cable cars and light rail. “Public transportation is a green technology and I don’t think people even realize that it is a technology,” Mills said. “At the summit we learned that if one person switches to public transportation, the carbon footprint is reduced by about 20

pounds daily, which is 4,800 pounds of carbon emissions a year. When you look at it that way, taking public transportation seems like a no-brainer if you have access to it. It’s just better for the planet.” And public transportation is doing its own part to reduce carbon emissions by looking into solar and electric power. During her trip to D.C., Mills met Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood and learned about the latest news and advancements in the public transit industry. She also got to tour Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority Metro headquarters to see what it takes to efficiently keep a public transportation system functioning. Mills enjoyed the program so much that she plans to apply to next year’s summit. In addition to learning about the inner workings of the American transit system, she also met teens from all over the country who share this common interest. “It’s like we’re in on a little secret – even though it’s not a secret. I think more young people should be learning about what’s going on.” Mills said the trip furthered her interest in design and architecture, and if all goes according to plan, she’d like to attend college on the east coast to be near more historic buildings, such the ones she was surrounded by in D.C. Her ultimate goal is to become a restoration architect. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters Evolution According to Dictionary.com, the definition of evolution is “any process of formation or growth; development: the evolution of a language; the evolution of the airplane.” So, let’s examine the evolution of the loan business in recent years. First, we had the “mortgage meltdown.” Sites like ml-implode.com were created, and to this day, are still tracking (and telling) that “since 2006 387 Major U.S. lending institutions have imploded.” Banks were failing and loans were falling out. One day you’re approved, the next day that very same lender is out of business and you’re out luck – no excuses or apologies from the banks, you’re not receiving your mortgage. We then evolved into the “foreclose crisis.” In 2008, there were more than 3.1 million foreclosures filed in the United States. According to Realty track, 861,664 families lost their homes in 2008 and foreclosures had spiked by a record 81%. By the numbers, that 81% in 2008 was up 225% from 2006. To make matters worse, right in our backyard Stockton, CA had the highest foreclosure rate in the nation. Next – which only made sense after reviewing the above mentioned stats – was the REO (Real Estate Owned) market we currently find ourselves with one foot in and one foot out. As of 2010, according to bankproperties.com, “there is an estimated twenty two million bank owner properties in the USA…” So, with many families falling victim to foreclosure, who is left to purchase

this record setting REO inventory other than cash investors? Enter 2011; the era of the investor. If you ever have a day off, travel down to Martinez and visit the County Court steps…it is quite a site to see. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in Cashier’s checks lace the pockets of those looking to make a profit by “flipping” these bank owned homes. Purchase cheap and flip for a profit, its Contra Costa County’s own version of TLC’s Flip that House. Once their money is spent, how do they get it back out? Until two weeks ago, lenders would not allow any cash buyers to refinance their newly acquired home for six months. That’s six months without the ability to use your money to make more money. Fannie Mae has since evolved, changing their rules with hopes of moving with the times. As the saying goes, you can both flow like a river and stay fresh like spring water, or you can stay stagnant like a pond and grow moldy with algae. As long as they meet certain guidelines, investors can now utilize a cashout refinance the day after closing escrow. No more waiting six months. In theory, taking their cash, reinvesting it into the market, and helping all of us to evolve out of this down market.

Fill ’er up NEW SHORT SALE LAW There is a new law in California that addresses a junior lender’s right to pursue after a short sale effective immediately. This will have a BIG impact on short sales, but whether it will lead to more short sales as was it’s intent or more foreclosures (see below) is yet to be seen. Back in January, a new law went into effect that said that lenders who agree to a short sale on a FIRST mortgage had to accept the proceeds as full satisfaction, meaning they couldn’t pursue the Seller after for the deficiency. This was welcome news and has helped many short sales go through that otherwise would have been foreclosures. The new law that went into effect last week extends this protection to any junior liens, as well. This means 2nd loans, 3rd loans, HELOCs, etc. The big question mark is how junior lenders will react. They may shrug their shoulders and say, “OK, it’s the law, we’ll comply. Here is your approval on the 2nd mortgage and we won’t be able to pursue the Seller after.” OR they may say, “Well, the only

reason we were approving the short sale is BECAUSE we would have the right to pursue the Seller after the short sale to collect even more money later. So now that we have to give up that right, we’d rather TURN DOWN the short sale and take our chances pursuing them after the foreclosure.” The third (and much more likely) result of this law is that junior lenders are going to ask for A LOT MORE money in order to approve the short sale. So it’s possible in some cases that this new law will INCREASE foreclosures because the junior lender either turns the short sale down, or holds out for more money than the 1st lender will allow. By the way, there are provisions in this law where if you commit fraud (lie about your financial situation) or waste (strip the house), then the protections don’t apply to you. Consult an attorney.

Downtown Thursday – where fun is found

Photo by Nicole Bruno

Sixteen-month-old Tayah dances to the music of The Citations at last week’s Downtown Thursday event.

The community celebrations known as Downtown Thursdays are more than just an occasion for family fun in Brentwood. After months of construction in the historic downtown district, the return of these weekly events signifies a renewed focus on community as mediated by the downtown merchants and local business owners who participate in Downtown Thursdays and help maintain Brentwood’s longstanding tradition of community pride and involvement.

GRAND OPENING JULY 30TH

Every 3-Car Garage Comes With a Canoe and a Lake to Float it in.

Downtown Thursdays, which began on July 7 and runs through October 6, have brought a welcomed surge of business back to downtown Brentwood. Becky Bloomfield, co-owner of Co. Co. County Wine Company, is one of the participants in the weekly event. “I’m proud to be a part of historic downtown as a merchant, and enjoy being able to help showcase it to the community,” said Bloomfield. “Our goal has always been to support the local community and its families, and these events do just that.” First Street between Oak and Chestnut streets once again serves as the hub of Downtown Thursdays, held from 5 to 8 p.m. In addition the classic car show, featured on the first Thursday of the month, festival goers can enjoy vendor booths, a farmers’ market, jumpy houses and face painting for children, meal deals from downtown restaurants and live music from many local favorites. Events such as Brentwood Idol and Brentwood’s Got Talent will also take place this season. As merchants and residents fill the streets of the historic downtown, simple reminders of Brentwood’s core values are preserved through family and community.

Vaccine deadline pushed back Gov. Jerry Brown has signed into effect legislation (SB 614-Kehoe) allowing a 30-day grace period for students who have not received the whooping cough booster vaccine to attend classes at the start of the school year. The No Shot, No School campaign extension will give schools and families additional time to get the vaccine as required by law late last year. Current law gave school districts just six months (until July 1) to ensure that all students in grades 7-12 provided verification of the whooping cough booster before the start of the 2011-12 school year, and as of Aug.1, students would not have been allowed to attend school without proof of inoculation. For those without health coverage, free booster shots are still available on Mondays, Aug. 1, 15 and 29 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. at St. Anthony Catholic Church, 971 O’Hara Ave. in Oakley. Shots will also be administered at the Liberty Adult Education Center, 929 Second St. in Brentwood, on Mondays, July 25 and Aug. 8 and 22. Proof of vaccinations may be dropped off at the following school district locations: • Antioch Unified School District, 510 G St. • Byron Union School District, 14301 Byron Highway. • Brentwood Union School District, 255 Guthrie Lane. • Knightsen Elementary School District, 1923 Delta Road. • Liberty Union High School District, 20 Oak St. in Brentwood. • Oakley Union Elementary School District, 91 Mercedes Lane.

widening project to complete the funding for the Sand Creek Road interchange, which recently received from the state $25 million of the necessary $33 million. The intersection of Sand Creek Road and the Bypass is currently controlled by a traffic light, but will someday be augmented by entrance and exit ramps similar to those at Lone Tree Way and Laurel Road. So far, bids on segments of the Highway 4 widening project have come in at roughly 30 percent below estimates, Iwasaki said. McNerney felt that the recession sweeping California could actually be a good thing for Highway 4 and East County, as the prices are right to build immediately. In addition to jobs, the round of improvements – scheduled to wrap up by the end of 2014 – will likely clear up a major traffic problem in East County. In March, traffic information firm INRIX listed westbound Highway 4 between Antioch and Pittsburg as the third-worst commute in the country, trailing Highway 91 in Los Angeles and Interstate H1 in Honolulu. Politicians also believe these improvements will make the Bypass corridor safer. “It’s a great testament to the hard work of the local electives,” McNerney said, “that recognize how painful it is for commuters, and also the opportunities it can bring not only in construction jobs when it’s working, but also after it’s done, the opportunity for commerce.” Frazier also spoke proudly about

Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor recently approved money for a connector ramp from the Bypass to Highway 160, which takes motorists over the Antioch Bridge and into the North Bay. The CCTA is using savings from the retrofit of the bridge to help pay for the connector ramp, which will cost about $50 million. The Bypass/160 project is also receiving roughly $7 million from the Bay Area Toll Authority, and will likely be completed within three years. The connector to 160 is all part of Frazier’s plan to eliminate Highway 4’s disruptive path through downtown Oakley. East of the split with the Bypass, Highway 4 hooks south and becomes the city’s two-lane Main Street. Frazier believes the wear and tear from freight trucks is damaging the road and hopes that when the Highway 4 and Bypass improvements are finished, Oakley can take ownership of the original highway running through its city, turning it into a local road. “I think,” said Frazier, “it will be a boon for our economy.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Debt Collectors Calling You? Know Your Rights by Joan Grimes, Esq.

Highway from page 1A

COMMUNITY

When people come into my office, one of the first things they talk about is the endless calls from debt collectors both at work and home. If you are receiving calls and letters from debt collectors on consumer debt i.e. debts incurred for personal, family and household purposes, here is the law you need know. 1. First Contact – The first communication to you by a debt collector whether on the phone or in writing, must (a) describe the purpose of that communication and (b) inform you that any information that it obtains from you will be used for collection of the debt. 2. Disclosure of Identity – Whenever a person representing a creditor or debt collection agency contacts you, the person must correctly identify himself and must not misrepresent himself or the entity he represents. 3. Right to Dispute Debt – When a debt collection agency initially contacts you or within five days of the initial contact, it must notify you in writing of your right to dispute the debt and to obtain verification of the debt, and it must provide you with verification if you request it. If you do not believe the debt is enforceable i.e. the lender doesn’t have the original note, it was not properly perfected or the amount of the debt is incorrect, this is a right time to request verification and dispute the debt. 4. Right to Stop Communications – You have the right to require a debt collection agency to stop contacting you!!! In addition, your spouse,parent (if the debtor is a minor) or guardian can also require that such communication stop. To do this, it is necessary that you ask the debt collection agency IN WRITING, to do so. While such a notice halts communications, it does not stop the debt collection agency from filing a lawsuit to collect on the debt. 5. Obligation to Respect Your Privacy – You absolutely have the right to specify what times are ok and what times are not ok for debt collectors to call you. Collectors are permitted to act on the assumption

that anytime between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. debtor’s local time are convenient to the debtor, but a collector cannot assume that those times are ok once the debtor notifies the collector that any portion of that period is, in fact, inconvenient and unsuitable for the debtor. In addition, the debtor can also specifically request that the collector not contact the debtor at work. 6. Communications to Your Employer – A collector may only communicate with your employer to verify your employment, to locate you, or to garnish your wages. 7. Communications with Family Members – A collector is prohibited, with certain exceptions, from attempting to collect a debt by communicating information regarding the debt to any of your family members. However, a collector can communicate with your spouse, can contact any family member to locate you and contact your parents if you reside with them. The California statute prohibiting contacting family members no longer applies once the debt becomes a judgment. The above highlights your rights in California with respect to collection of consumer debts. If you are receiving calls and letters from debt collectors, I urge you to seek legal counsel before entering into any debt consolidation programs either with the lender or a third party.

‘Big-box’ legislation bad for local communities Antioch Mayor James Davis As the Mayor of Antioch, I know that the people I serve want what’s best for our community. We know best how to run our city. And in these challenging economic times we know we need maximum flexibility as we work to bring new businesses and new jobs to the community. It is my belief, and I know it is shared with countless others, that a local government’s ability to make decisions for UEST its community are often better, COMMENT specific, efficient and flexible as compared to the decisions made by faceless committees in Capitol buildings miles away. They don’t know the special issues we face every day and they don’t understand the needs we have here in Antioch. That’s why I am opposed to Senate Bill 469 by Sen. Juan Vargas (D – San Diego). The so-called “Small and Neighborhood Business Protection Act” should really be called the “State Legislators Knows Best Act.” Ultimately, this legislation substitutes the judgment of local elected officials for the judgment of politicians in Sacramento; and it clearly targets superstores. Here is how it would work: the bill would impose new state requirements before a superstore can be built in a community. This would add another layer of bureaucratic red tape, and now is not the time to be passing laws that stifle

G

local control and effectively bans superstores. While this bill may be good politics, it’s bad policy. For example, right now, our city is experiencing financial struggles with high unemployment and few opportunities for economic development. Recently, however, our city approved an expansion of the Walmart store, which will bring in more jobs and revenue. This project is currently stuck in court, and so if SB 469 passes, our anticipated additional revenue and jobs will be in jeopardy. The bill mandates that more studies be performed before a store can be built. In fact, a recent analysis of the bill by Kosmont Companies found that the bill was so poorly written that it would create an environment of litigation much worse that what we are already experiencing here in Antioch. Additionally, many cities across the state have urban decay studies and regulatory standards. The fact is that local communities throughout California already have policies in place that address the building of supercenters. Each local government is able to define what works for their community and what doesn’t. They are able to adapt their powers to fit local conditions and local governments are empowered to own that process. This legislation would ultimately take away that important decision-making process. The fact is that local communities, like ours, need economic development. SB 469 has the potential to stifle economic growth by creating another layer of bureaucratic

LETTERS Making the most of Mello Roos Editor: Tracing back to 1989, Mello Roos has been a long and winding road. So where are we at? The Antioch Mello Roos Board recently had a second public meeting soliciting citizen input on what to do with a remaining $2 million left in the kitty after the last construction. Additionally, some 250 people answered an online newspaperinitiated survey. Yet others responded to a daily’s weekly e-view question. The Mello Roos Board is now passing on these collected suggestions to the City Council, which has the ultimate authority

for disbursement. Remember, the citizen board comprised of two city councilors, two school board trustees and three at-large citizens is merely an oversight agency. It facilitates a citizen voice and oversees, but doesn’t dictate, expenditures. So what, pray tell, did we learn from engaging the public sounding board? Not surprisingly, a healthy 38 percent asked for the return of the money, which would equate to, on rough average, $115 per household. That shortens the bond payoff, now projected to end in 2016, about a month. Sixty-two percent, though, wanted the money spent. Turf athletic fields led the nearest other choices (a tie between building a golf disc course and a library extension) by 3-1. Tallying only a few votes were a dog park, BMX track, and lazy river feature on the existing pool. An 11th-hour suggestion was for solar panels. One other suggestion was for enrichment classes, but by law, the bond must be spent on capital construction, not operating expenses. Legally, any expenditure must also be used within the confines of the eight designated schools or for Prewett, not for street landscaping as someone mentioned. The turf proponents, incidentally, argued that Antioch is the only town far and wide without turf and that thousands of kids suffer unsafe conditions or get denied playing time during the rainy season. They also argue that turf would not only, pardon the pun, level the playing field but would buff our city image and generate tens of thousands of dollars in tournament fees

red tape, which can lead to the loss of badly-needed tax revenues for cities. The result will be many California cities will continue to run deficits and may have to cut vital services like police and fire. And the fact is that local communities know best. This issue is about trust: do we trust local communities to make decisions? And the legislators supporting this bill clearly do not trust the authority and transparency of local government oversight. Wouldn’t it be better if state legislators worked with us to turn around our state’s economy? SB 469 will not help solve our state’s high unemployment rate, and it certainly won’t help bring in revenue to assist bridging the gap of our massive budget deficit. Today, our state is faced with the worst economic crisis in years. It will take all of us working together to find a solution. I believe there is a simple formula that will turn the economy around: if we let local government do its job and attract businesses appropriate for our community, then we will create new jobs and revenue for city, county and state services. So the choice facing the legislature is simple: do we let local governments decide what is best for our communities? Or do we let Sacramento pass laws that will cause roadblocks and hinder ability for growth? The answer is obvious: tell your legislator to oppose SB 469. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

and restaurant business. So it’s now up to our City Fathers to weigh the options and either refund or build something. If they do in fact build, the citizens’ board encouraged them to attempt leveraging through perhaps naming rights, matching grants or corporate donors. Of course, in addition to the recent public suggestions, the council, if it opts not to refund, can also consider any of the remaining items on the original wish list sketched out in 1989. That vision includes a meadow, lagoon, central plaza, Olympic pool, enhanced walking trails, café and outdoor basketball or volleyball courts. The estimated cost for that short list is $9 million; obviously money not at hand. Not in play, too, is the originally dreamed-for full 40,000-square-foot library, now a distant reality with a formidable $30 million price tag. Before we run off with checkbook in hand, then, it must be noted that intertwined in any building consideration is cost of maintenance and staffing. As well, the remaining grounds have the worst of the never construction-friendly Prewett area slope and soil. To further muddy the mix, parking and lighting may be issues, as well as mitigation to the burrowing owls. Though a turf field generally costs $1.2 to $1.5 million, the remaining $2 million might not, in fact, accomplish that. The heartening news is that, due to favorable state hardship deals on the schools, we benefited from better-thanexpected matching funds. We’re in fact some nine years ahead of our once estimated

bond payoff. We also saved several million on the community center due to the competitive bidding climate caused by the building slowdown. Thanks, then, to the 11,400 sacrificing Mello Roos taxpaying families, we can boast eight gorgeous schools, a splendid water park, a state-of-the-art community center, gymnasium, police substation, amphitheater, library annex, technology center, kid’s learning area and kitchen. Prewett is, unarguably, a well-appointed place and hopping with activity, far exceeding projected attendance at banquets, conferences and library and gym use. We now have some new certified jewels to go along with our other causes of city pride: Black Diamond Mines, the Delta, Contra Loma Park, Lone Tree Golf Course and Event Center, the El Campanil, the Antioch Historical Museum, the police headquarters, 27 city parks, our vibrantly diverse population, places of worship and career-based academies. We’ve entered the last major bend on this now 22-year journey, with all its ups and downs. The Mello Roos Board has facilitated and passed on public input. Now public attention needs go to the City Council to encourage Solomon wisdom as they navigate last curves. Be heard. Democracy works, but only if we, the citizenry, work at it.

Water charges all wet Editor: I normally do not write complaint letters – but since moving to Brentwood

THEPRESS.NET

from San Leandro, have been really perturbed and mystified at the cost of water in Brentwood. For almost 21 years in San Leandro, my water bill for two or three people from EBMUD usually ran about $45 for three months. But here in Brentwood, my water bill for one month for two people is almost $85, and there is an unheard of item called “sewer usage” charge of over $40. The explanation from the City of Brentwood was for anything that goes down the sewer (duh, where is it going to go?) and that some water districts charge this monthly and some via other means; i.e., property tax, etc. Well, in 21 years with EBMUD I never had a sewer usage amount on my bill nor did I get a separate bill for it. If you calculate an approximate $500 per year for some 52,000 people in Brentwood just for the sewer usage fee – that’s a lot of money. What is it used for and why is it so high? I like this little community a lot and have been visiting since 2003, but I think see Letters page 18A

Antioch’s Miles finds groove with Dodgers by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer Two men, separated by 60 feet, 6 inches of Kentucky bluegrass and volcanic rock dust, are closer together than they imagine. When Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Aaron Miles, a 1995 Antioch High grad, faced San Francisco Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong on Monday night, the matchup was fitting. A few months ago, neither player knew what his future held. In 2010, the 34-year-old Miles hit for an average of .281 off the bench with the St. Louis Cardinals while filling the lineup card at second base, shortstop, third base, designated hitter, pinch hitter and even pitcher. But after the Cardinals opted not to re-sign him, he was offered a minor league contract this winter by the Dodgers. Vogelsong, 33, was a failed hot prospect in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization – a lottery ticket a few digits off from a winner. From 2007 to 2009, he pitched in Japan, returning to the states in 2010 in search of another big league shot. After bouncing around from Philadelphia to Anaheim, he was offered a minor league contract this winter by the Giants. Neither club could have suspected what happened next. Vogelsong (who held Miles

The former Panther, who is near-sighted, credited corrective eye surgery in November with increased success in the batter’s box. The fact that he’s always had an ample supply of elbow grease helped. “I feel like I’ve been a born-again play-

er, just given a gift of better eyesight to go along with my experience and knowledge,” Miles said. “I feel like I’ve got an advantage. Out of nowhere, I can see the ball better and that’s the main thing in this game.” Miles has taken a long road to Major League success. He spent eight years in the minor leagues after being drafted by Houston Astros out of high school, finally getting his first call-up with the Chicago White Sox in 2003. Miles cracked the starting lineup the following year for the Colorado Rockies. With renewed vision going into this season, Miles forced the Dodgers’ hand in spring training, batting .321 including two home runs in 53 at-bats. Instead of sending Miles to their minor league team in Albuquerque, the Dodgers told him to head to Chavez Ravine. “He’s been solid all year and he’s been a nice surprise for us,” Los Angeles manager Don Mattingly said. “He’s been a guy that swings the bat good from both sides of the plate and he’ll play everywhere. When he’s in there, he does his job.” Monday night proved a homecoming for Miles, who was welcomed by his own fan club, comprising his parents – Herb and Fran – other relatives, friends and members

Three local Little League All-Star softball teams made it all the way to the Division 2 Tournament, pitted against tough competition from all over the state, but results weren’t as great as they’d hoped. Antioch’s senior and 11-12-year-olds and East County’s 10-11-year-olds were forced to the elimination bracket early in tournament play. As of Wednesday, only Antioch’s senior softball team was still alive. The senior team claimed a 7-6 win over Peachbowl from Yuba City in the first round of the Division 2 playoffs, but were unable to hold off a tough Redwood Empire team in the next round, losing 8-2. The Antioch Senior All-Stars faced Peachbowl again on Wednesday for the chance to jump back into the winner’s bracket against Redwood Empire. Antioch’s 11-12 All-Stars lost to Peachbowl 4-2 in their first-round game. Kyra Gallego, Clarissa Im and Megan Felix all went 1for-3. Next, Antioch’s 11-12 All-Stars brought their bats out for a 9-1 victory over Linden. Kylie Cast earned her 24th win of the season,

going the distance. Julia Odom went 2-for-3 with three RBIs. After Antioch continued its hitting barrage in a 10-0 victory over Intermountain and an 11-3 win over Northridge, Cast picked up wins 25 and 26. Against Northridge, Cast, Odom, Felix and Michaela Vanderklugt each contributed 2-for-4 performances. But the 11-12 All-Stars season ended in a heartbreaking 5-4 loss to Peachbowl in 10 innings, nine of which were pitched by Cast. The youngest local team to make the District 2 playoffs, East County’s 10-11 team saw no shortage of runs – on either side of the scoreboard. The East County All-Stars prevailed in a 34-4 opening round victory over Suisun American. After that, the team finished on the wrong end of a 24-8 blowout at the hands of Gilroy. Bumped to the elimination bracket, East County responded with vigor. The 1011 All-Stars thumped Land Park Pacific 21-1 on Monday. Upon returning to the winner’s bracket, however, East County faced Gilroy again – with everything on the line. The Gilroy All-Stars prevailed in a 23-6 division-winning victory.

Heritage’s Conder takes skills to Pebble Beach by Michael Dixon Correspondent

It’s not often a girl who hasn’t even begun her sophomore year in high school gets to play with the pros at Pebble Beach. It’s even rarer that someone who gets that opportunity wouldn’t call it the highlight of the week. Yet that’s what happened with Heritage High’s Megan Conder, who played in the recent Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach. While the tournament itself lasted two days, it was a weeklong event. Conder said the experience taught her a lot, but golf was only a part of the experience. “It was unbelievable – the best week of my life,” said Conder. “I got to meet people from all over. Even today, I’ve been talking to friends I made that week from all over the country. That’s pretty cool.” The golf was also important to Conder. The first day of competition was played at Del Monte, one of the oldest courses on the Central Coast. The following day’s round was played at the famed Pebble Beach track. While Conder’s Del Monte round was less than stellar, her performance at Pebble Beach was fantastic. She made four birdies on her way to a 69. One of those birdies came on the par-five 14th, which famously gave the best professionals in the world trouble at the 2010 U.S. Open. Conder reached the hole in two shots, something she was told hadn’t been done by a junior in more than 20 years. The format paired one pro with one junior player. Conder was paired with Tom Purtzer, a five-time PGA Tour and four-time Champions Tour winner. “Seeing how they play motivates me to do better,” Conder said. “To play my own game with them is amazing. My pro said I shouldn’t change anything

in the swing, which was an honor, since he has one of the best swings in golf.” The Nature Valley First Tee Open has become something of a family affair for Conder’s family, as Megan’s older sister Lauren, a 2010 Heritage graduate, played in the event five years earlier. Megan said a lot of the pros, including Purtzer, recognized her from when she was only 10. On that note, Conder also said the week was a big opportunity to show what she could do inside the ropes. First Tee is a nationwide nonprofit that aims to give young athletes a solid background in golf and instill in them positive values. Conder didn’t get to interact only with golf professionals, but professional athletes of other sports in the practice rounds. One of them was Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn. “That was unforgettable,” said Conder. “She’s a world-class athlete, a great person and a really good golfer. She was telling me that I remind her of when she was young – that was amazing.” Caddying for Conder was Joe Fernandez, Head Pro at Diablo Creek Golf Course in Concord. Like Conder, Fernandez also couldn’t say enough good things about the week in general, both on the course and off. “I talked to her a week after the tournament was over, and she said it gave her the realization that it’s not just about golf,” Fernandez said. “It’s more than just a game; it’s about everything the First Tee program stands for.” Conder agreed: “The First Tee has changed my life. It’s the most amazing program. Without it, the choices I have made would be so different. I owe it all to First Tee.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Miles from page 19A of the Antioch Sports Legends Museum. Herb, as Antioch legend goes, built Aaron a batting cage in the backyard so his boy could take some hacks whenever he wanted. That decision might have rankled neighbors, but it pleased the Panthers. Miles became a high school All-American for Antioch, which was one of the top prep teams in the state when he was there. In his senior year as a Panther, he batted .538 and drove in 34 runs. Antioch also turned 37 double plays in 26 games that season. “He was the first guy out and the last guy to leave,” said John Whitman, the Panthers’ manager from 1982 to 1998. “His teammates looked up to him because he

The 6U claimed the title in the sectional playoffs in Rodeo and moved on to the western finals in West Covina, near Los Angeles. In the sectional bracket, the 6U team faced teams from Natomas, Tera Hills, Rodeo and Pittsburg. The western finals will start Monday. Two other Blast teams – the 8U and 12U – have already concluded their seasons. In the recent western finals, the 8U Blast won two games, but ended with a tough 4-3 loss to Los Alamitos. Coach Mark Petures was impressed by the way the team played, despite being together for a little over a month. Prior to the western finals, the 8U

Teammates and coaches described him as the kind of guy they love to be around, one who will do whatever he can to help the team. Infielder Jamie Carroll, his double-play partner for much of the year, believes Miles has been a positive influence on the team. “He’s a good clubhouse guy who brings a lot of life to the atmosphere – and that helps out a lot,” Carroll said. “He’s got a good track record and it was just a matter of getting an opportunity.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Hot Shots heat up the Central Valley The Oakley-based Hot Shots 10U softball team headed out to the Central Valley recently to compete in the RevHoney Softball Tournament at Rainbow Fields in Modesto. Managed by Dave Carter and assisted by coaches Steve West and Bill Liu, the girls arrived ready to play ball and came out strong on Saturday, going a perfect 3-0 in pool play. Only four runs were scored against them on Saturday thanks to lock-down defense and outstanding pitching by Kalissa Heihn, Jenna Liu and Madison Saunders. The Hot Shots’ bats provided plenty of firepower as the team rolled to victories over teams from Elk Grove, Chowchilla and Dinuba. Their hard work earned the Hot Shots the No. 1 seed for Sunday’s playoff elimination games. Following their first-round bye, the girls faced off against the Calaveras Sliders in Sunday’s semifinal game. Both teams scored early runs but the Hot Shots blew the game open in the third inning with clutch hitting and hustle on the base paths. After establishing the lead with their bats, the girls made it stick with solid pitching from Heihn plus defensive play from catcher Kelsey Martinez and outfielder Gianna Siino. After eliminating the Sliders 7-3, the girls faced their toughest test: Lady Liberty from Concord (also 3-0 on Saturday) in the championship game. The Hot Shots struck first off a drag bunt by leadoff batter Allyson Ferreira, who proceeded to steal second and third, then scored on a sacrifice fly from Riley Ehlen to give the Hot Shots a immediate 1-0 lead. Inspired pitching by Heihn and catching by Natalie Nicolosi kept the score 1-0 through the first three innings. Outstanding defense was provided by shortstop Ferreira, who made seven putouts, deftly scooping up every ball hit her way

and firing over to first baseman Allyson McBroom. Second baseman Jenna Liu also contributed stifling defense to the cause. The Hot Shots took control of the game in the fourth inning, scoring five runs off a combination of timely walks, steals and clutch hitting. The entire batting order contributed to the scoring effort and pushed the lead to 6-0. The girls finished off Lady Liberty for a final score of 6-1 and the right to take home the trophy. “This was a total team effort, and the girls all played some great softball this weekend,” said Carter. Earning spe-

cial recognition were Kalissa Heihn, who pitched outstanding games on Sunday, and shortstop Allyson Ferreira, whose stellar defense kept the opposition off the bases. Comprising players from Brentwood, Oakley, Pittsburg, Danville and Fairfield, the 10U Hot Shots will be wrapping up their summer season at the end of July and making the move up to 12U this fall. Team tryouts will be held Aug. 7 and 13 at Magnolia Park in Oakley.

Son tops dad for Sprint Car title Learn to serve It was father versus son in a classic battle to win the second King of the West Sprint Car Series main event at Antioch Speedway Saturday night. Tim Kaeding, limping home on seven cylinders, still had what it took to top dad Brent, who got caught in lapped traffic. “I had the better race car than he did,” Brent Kaeding said in victory lane. “Second (is unacceptable). I really wanted to win this thing.” The elder Kaeding found himself blocked by lapped cars and wasn’t afraid to talk about it after the race. “I got hung up by a couple of cars that shouldn’t have made it out of the B-Main,” he said. “Tonight the car was right, and I went for it, but sometimes a good run gets ruined.” Son Tim praised his dad, but felt his pain. “Hitting lapped traffic at the right time is the great divider in this sport,” he said. “If you get through it at the right time, you’re going forward.” Brent chided his son: “I remember a few times when I kicked an old guy’s (butt). It must have felt good.” Tim heaped praise back on his dad. “I wish I could kick his (butt). He can beat me by a mile,” he said. “He’s like an old quarterback.

Tim Kaeding, in the No. 69 car, battles father Brent in the King of the West Sprint Car Series event at the Antioch Speedway on Saturday. With his experience, he can throw touchdown passes all night long. Don’t let him fool you.” In victory lane, Tim revealed that he was racing his dad so hard he broke a valve and was running with seven cylinders. But he didn’t back off. “I drive it until it dies,” he said. “We always seem to win when we break motors – and that’s not a good way to do it.” Saturday’s Antioch Speedway event was the 13th race this season for the King of the West Series, and points leader Tim Kaeding has four wins.

“It was a points night for us, and we’ll take the win, even if it was on seven cylinders,” Tim said. “It’s a good thing the car was so free. I was able to move around a lot, and that made up for the lost cylinder.” Nick Squatritto of San Jose returned to victory lane for the second week in a row in the Dwarf Car division feature event. Squatritto, who has moved to Ohio to attend school this fall, flies back to race at Antioch Speedway. “When I came here last week, it felt great to be back in my race car,” he said. “It feels like home.” His dad, Mark, is his crew chief. Due to the distance between them, the two prepare the car by phone conversation. “We bounce ideas off of each other,” he said. “He always tells me how enjoyable it is to watch me race.” His mom, Ute, is there to hand Mark parts and wrenches at home and at the track. “I’m going to school, but I’m still racing,” Nick said. “I’ll be back. Eventually, I’ll be looking to move up to modifieds.” On Saturday night, the All Star Wingless Sprints take center stage at Antioch Speedway. Also on the card are Limited Late Models, Mini-Trux, Four Bangers and BCRA Lites. – Contributed by Mike Adaskaveg

Peaches from page 1B the U-Pick experience to locals and tourists since the end of May and will continue to offer peaches for a few more weeks. “There are a lot of different varieties of peaches, and each tree harvests for about a week to 10 days, so if you plant a variety of trees, you can produce peaches throughout the summer,” McKinney said. “It’s been an interesting year. With the cooler spring and the rains, the season started a little later, but it’s been a good season so far.” McKinney Farms, located at 25221 Marsh Creek Road, is a member of Harvest Time, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving agri-tourism in far East County. McKinney credits participation in the program as a way to gain more exposure to tourists. During CornFest weekend, some guests picked up Harvest Time maps and concluded their Brentwood adventure with a tour of the local farms and ranches. For those new to U-Pick, McKinney said the best thing to do is to just come out and give it a try. “You can’t knock it until you’ve tried it, and there’s nothing like picking fruit right off the tree. You won’t find anything fresher, and it’s a great family experience.” Over at The Farmer’s Daughter Produce and U-Pick Farm, located at the intersection of Walnut Boulevard and Marsh Creek Road, clingstone and yellow peaches ON THE COVER: Julie Wong, 10, made the trip from San Jose to pick peaches at The Farmer’s Daughter Produce and U-Pick Farm.

Isabelle Osuma, left, and mother Elizabeth chose to get their peaches picked for them by the folks at the Farmer’s Daughter produce stand. are ready for U-Pick. According to worker Kiersten Walker, U-Pick peaches are popular pickings this time of year. Each weekend, the farms sees about 250 pickers, and those unfamiliar with the U-Pick drill can be escorted into the orchards by the farm’s employees, who can identify different types of peaches and offer tips on spotting the best ones and picking them. “We like to have U-Pickers try different types of peaches so that they’ll be satisfied with the peaches they pick,” Walker explained. “We show them how to check ripe-

B

ness and how to handle the peaches so that they don’t bruise the fruit. We see hundreds of people each week and they really seem to enjoy the U-Pick experience.” Although the stand stocks plenty of picked peaches, Walker and her fellow employees encourage folks to dive into the UPick adventure. Farmer’s Daughter supplies all the materials needed for a successful sortie out into the orchard. Cathy Wolfe at Wolfe Ranch said the peach U-Pick season isn’t as well known as the cherry season. Most people aren’t aware

that U-Pick season extends through the summer to other crops such as apricots and plums. The last of the suncrest peach crop will be picked this weekend, but coming in August, the yellow Fay Elberta peaches will be ripe and ready at Wolfe Ranch, located at 164 Payne Ave. What’s unique about Wolfe Ranch is the rare variety of peaches available for U-Pick. “We’ve got old-fashioned varieties that have been around for a long time,” Wolfe said. “These peaches are really delicate and bruise easily, so they don’t ship well post harvest, but just off the tree, these peaches are some of the best you’ve ever tasted.” To your health Taking a mouthful out of a fresh peach means you’re taking in optimal vitamins and minerals. Once peaches have been picked and stored – whether at the stand, the grocery store or at home – their nutritional value begins to decline, so a U-Pick trip means getting the healthiest fruit available. According to the American Cancer Society, peaches are packed with phytochemicals, known to combat cancer cells. Peaches are a good source of fiber, potassium, calcium and are rich in vitamin C. Peach consumption is also good for the digestive tract. The reddish hue of peach skin signifies that the fruit is high in antioxidants such as lycopene and lutein, which are helpful in protecting the eyes and skin.

Succulent nectarines complement fresh peaches at local U-Pick farms and roadside fruit stands.

Peaches from page 2B and B, phosphorus and folate – all highly beneficial to your health. Although raw peaches provide the greatest nutritional value, there are dozens of ways to prepare peaches. From peach pie and cobbler to salsas and smoothies, peaches can be incorporated into a variety of meals throughout the day. But Wolfe warned that even healthy fruits such as peaches should be consumed in moderation. “Of course peach pies are popular, but you can’t have pie every day or your waistline is going to regret it,” Wolfe said. “A slice or two doesn’t hurt, but my favorite way to have peaches is in a bowl of cereal. Peaches are flavorful and go with a lot of unexpected food combinations. You just need to give them a try.” A surprising way to add peaches to a meal this summer is to incorporate them into kabobs with chicken or fish and other fruits and veggies such as tomatoes and peppers. Grill them on the barbecue for a smokin’ sweet dish. Internet searches for peach-incorporating recipes will return a

bevy of results, so be prepared to take notes or have your printer on standby. Peaches preserved The Harvest Time website, www.harvest4you.com, recommends that U-Pickers call farms in advance to check for availability. Once you’re at the farm, collect as much fruit as you can carry. If you end up with more than you bargained for, you can always share your harvest with family, friends, coworkers and neighbors, or preserve the peaches in juices, jams or jellies. Canning and freezing peaches are other option to make sure you get the most of your pickings, and by preserving peaches in a variety of ways, you can enjoy flavorful East County peaches all year long. Websites such as www.pickyourown fruit.org and videos available on YouTube will instruct you in various ways to preserve peaches, but if you’re still at a loss, talk with the farmers and their staff. They’ll be more than happy to offer assistance. For a complete list of local farms offering peaches for U-Pick, visit www. harvest4you.com. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Health insurance for people who can’t get it by David Sayen Correspondent If you’ve been turned down for health insurance because of a pre-existing condition, or offered coverage only at an unaffordable price, you might have another option: California’s PreExisting Condition Insurance Plan. The Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP) is available to children and adults who’ve been locked out of the health insurance market because they have cancer, heart disease, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, asthma or some other pre-existing medical condition. With PCIP, you’ll be insured for a wide range of benefits, including primary and specialty physicians’ services, hospital care and prescription drugs. Like commercial insurance plans, PCIP requires you to pay a monthly premium, a deductible and some cost-sharing expenses. But you won’t be charged a higher premium because of your medical condition, and your eligibility isn’t based on your income. When you enroll in PCIP you’ll have access to a provider network that includes 67,000 physicians, 5,906 pharmacies and 354 hospitals throughout the state. A visit to the doctor will cost you $25. PCIP also covers emergency and ambulance services, surgery and anesthesia, organ transplants, X-ray and lab services, pregnancy and maternity care, skilled nursing care, home health services, orthotics and prosthetics, durable medical equipment, plus inpatient and outpatient mental health, alcohol and substance abuse care. PCIP is already changing the lives of Americans who don’t have health coverage and need medical care. James H., who lives in Texas, was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2010. Shortly after his diagnosis, James’ insurance company rescinded his insurance coverage, claiming that his cancer was a pre-existing condition. James knew that his lack of coverage was a death sentence. Fortunately, he was able to join PCIP in Texas and is now receiving the treatment he needs.

To qualify for PCIP, you must have been denied health insurance within the past 12 months. You must also live in California and be a U.S. citizen or legal resident. In addition, you must have been uninsured for at least six months before applying for PCIP. Your premiums will be based on where you live and the amount you’d pay if you had no preexisting condition and were able to purchase individual insurance in the open market. For example, a Central Valley resident 5054 years of age would pay $481 per month for PCIP. A San Francisco Bay Area resident 45-49 would pay $377 per month. Someone 18 years old or younger living in Del Norte, Humboldt, Siskiyou or Shasta counties would pay $145 monthly. You’ll pay a 15-percent coinsurance for most in-network services after meeting a $1,500 annual medical deductible. PCIP also has a $500 annual deductible for brand-name drugs. There are no out-of-pocket costs for preventive care, including regular physical exams, cancer screenings, immunizations and well-child care. As a PCIP subscriber, you’ll pay no more than $2,500 per year out-of-pocket. When you reach this $2,500 cap, PCIP pays all costs for covered services received within the PCIP network for the remainder of the calendar year (although you must continue to pay your monthly premium to stay enrolled.) And this is important: PCIP has no cap on annual or lifetime benefits. The Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan was created under the Affordable Care Act. It’s a transitional program until 2014, when all Americans – regardless of health status – gain access to affordable health insurance as the nation shifts to a new marketplace. For more information, visit www.pcip. ca.gov or call 877-428-5060 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. David Sayen is Medicare’s regional administrator for California.
