Cities ready for highway handover by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

The cities of Brentwood and Oakley are one step closer to sealing the deal with CalTrans (California Department of Transportation) and finally taking control of their respective Highway 4 roadways. The Brentwood and Oakley city councils have approved the formal cooperative agreements with CalTrans for the transfer and handover of State Route 4 and the State Route 4 Bypass to their local jurisdictions. And because CalTrans has determined that each city is exempt from the usual 90-day CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act) notifications – due to the agency’s ongoing familiarity with the decades-old projects – the process has been accelerated, and the official handovers are expected to take place by the end of the year. “The reason this is coming up now,” said Debra Galey, management analyst for the City of Brent-

Also designated as State Route 4, Main Street will be turned over to the city later this year when the Highway 4 Bypass becomes the new Route 4. wood, “is because the Bypass was constructed as an extension of State Route 4 and now that sections one, two and three are nearly complete, CalTrans is ready to take it into the state highway system, which means that the state can now relinquish it

to the local cities.” For both Brentwood and Oakley – which have long anticipated the transfer – the handover will finally afford them the opportunities to build their own civic autonomy and maintain local control.

“To control the major thoroughfare is huge for any community,” said Oakley City Manager Bryan Montgomery. “And right now we don’t control the landscaping, traffic signs, encroachments, closures, etc. But once we do have control, we can commence improving the roadway and access and landscaping so that Main Street can become something we can be proud of.” The transfer also comes with money from the state to assist the cities in maintaining the roadways. Brentwood will receive $678,000; Oakley $1,471,000. Oakley’s dollars are earmarked to improve Main Street from Bridgehead Road to Big Break Road and install drainage upgrades in the downtown area. “Brentwood’s money will come as part of the transfer/handover to the city from the state and will be used for conditioning of the pavement, repairs and replacements to

School aide saves choking student by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Amna Camarra doesn’t usually escort Iron House Elementary kindergarteners to lunch, but since it was the first week of school, she figured it would be good for the students if she helped them learn the routine. The literacy support aide turned out to be at the right place at the right time when one of Iron House’s newest students began to choke on his lunch. “I was standing by a group of students eating lunch when I heard a strange noise behind me,” Camarra said. “I turned around and there was a little boy resting his head on the table. His face was red and he looked like he was in trouble.” Camarra, who has been at Iron House for a year, rushed to the boy’s side and asked if he was OK. The boy shook his head, so she asked him if he

could breathe. The boy shook his head again. To be sure, Camarra repeated the questions in Spanish to make sure he understood. The boy still shook his head, so Camarra jumped into action, applying the Heimlich maneuver. With a swift pump of her fist against the boy’s abdomen, a chunk of the burrito the boy was eating dislodged from his windpipe. For her lifesaving efforts, Camarra was recognized at the Oakley Union School District meeting with a certificate of appreciation on Wednesday, but she insists she doesn’t deserve the special attention. “It’s embarrassing,” Camarra said. “I did what anyone else would have done. I didn’t expect all this attention. When I cleared the boy’s windpipe, I looked up to see if someone could look Photo courtesy of Michele Gaudinier after the boy while I cleaned up the mess and I realized everyone was watching Iron House literacy support aide Amna Camarra was recently honored by the Oakley Union School see Aide page 17A District for saving a choking student.

Report cites problems with new police radios by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer A state-of-the-art police radio system purchased by the Brentwood Police Department is vulnerable to jamming and encryption problems, according to a study reported last week in the Wall Street Journal. But a spokesman for the BPD said the issues are primarily due to operator errors. The new system is designed to allow multiple emergency response agencies to communicate with each other, something not possible with older, analog radios now used by most departments. In addition to standard VHF communications, the new radios facilitate encrypted (coded) transmissions. According to the Aug. 10 story, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania “overheard conversations that included descriptions of undercover agents and confidential informants, plans for forthcoming arrests and information on the technology used in surveillance operations.” Their research also shows that the radios can be effectively jammed using a pink electronic child’s toy and that the standard used by the radios “provides a convenient means for an attacker” to continuously track the location of a radio’s user. Another problem is that the P25 radios allow jamming at relatively low power, enabling the researchers to prevent reception

using a $30 toy pager designed for pre-teens. Last week, the Brentwood City Council approved an $827,000 expenditure for the Motorola system – the same one cited in the news report and study – which is expected to be up and running by the middle of September. Wade Gomes, a former BART Police captain, now an administrative liaison with the BPD, said his interpretation of the report was that problems seemed to be largely due to user error. “I’ve had the chance to quickly read the study and conclude that most of the problems are due to poor setup of the systems, poor training of the users and poor response to training – where trained operators forget to switch their radios from clear to encrypted traffic,” said Gomes. “The errors are mostly due to a human factor and not the equipment itself.” But Holly Joshi, public information officer for the Oakland Police Department – which has used the P25 system for about 90 days – said the new radios are indeed flawed. “There are a number of problems with this system,” said Joshi. “Sometimes the officers in the field can’t hear the dispatchers or hear one another. We’re working with the manufacturer and hoping the issue gets corrected. I know they’re working on it and trying see Radios page 12A

Oakley’s Almond Grove School, which currently sits empty, will become home to the Lynn Center, which serves special needs children. Press file photo

Almond Grove to get special tenants by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer If Barbara Maizie seems especially effusive these days, it’s understandable. Just a few weeks ago the executive director of the Lynn Center in Pittsburg was frantically searching for a new location for her nearly 100 specialneeds students – and coming up empty. “We all feel like we are dreaming; we are over-the-moon; just delighted,” said Maizie. “We have been looking for a new home for months and feeling so desperate because nothing was happening, none of our options were panning out. But now all that has changed.” The change comes in the form of the Oakley Union Elementary School District (OUESD), which – pending school board approval – will be leasing 11 classrooms and an office at Almond Grove Elementary school to the Lynn Center – an agreement that allows the

nonprofit agency to continue operating on the OUESD site recently vacated by the Mountain View Christian Center and Trinity Christian School. The Lynn Center draws students from school districts throughout the county – including seven currently from OUESD – as well as referrals from state agencies such as the Regional Center. “We’re very excited to help out the special-needs children that the Lynn Center currently services,” said OUESD Superintendent Rick Rogers. “The opportunity we’re providing not only helps out the seven students that are ours, but also students from virtually every other public school district on this side of the hill. I have no doubt the parents of our students are very excited to be able to have their children stay in Oakley.” For the past 27 years, the Lynn Center has see Almond Grove page 12A

Festival to fill Streets with Art, Wine & Jazz by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

When the Brentwood Art, Wine & Jazz Festival hits The Streets of Brentwood on the weekend of Aug. 27 and 28, visitors will be treated to world-class music, award-winning wines and a variety of unique artwork. But one thing folks won’t experience, hopes Brentwood Art Society President Jack Gaughan, is a repeat of last year’s unseasonably harsh conditions. “I’ve ordered calm weather for the festival – no gale force winds,” laughed Gaughan of the last year’s surprise wind storm and abnormally cool temperatures. “It’s going to be a great event.” Celebrating its 10th anniversary and second showing at The Streets, the admission-free, family-friendly event features 44 artist booths, six wineries, two microbreweries plus local food vendors. The Brentwood Kiwanis Club, Sutter Medical Center and John Muir Medical Group will also operate booths, as will the Broadway Under the Stars group. The children’s area includes last year’s popular Wall of Art, featuring the work of local students, and the potentially messy – but fun – Kids N’ Clay sculpting area. Artist Al Lopez will draw caricatures, and a Lego play area provided by Bricks for Kids will offer plenty of play for builders of all ages. New this year are the Liberty High School singing groups “Divas,” “Pink Ladies” and “Jag,” strolling through the grounds, entertaining visitors with sweet a cappella offerings. Also new and located at the west end of the promenade

Lloyd Gregory, above left, and Holly Penfield are among the performers to appear at the Brentwood Art, Wine & Jazz Festival on Aug. 27-28. will be an exhibition of Liberty High School students creating chalk sidewalk paintings. “My long-term objective is to have a streetpainting festival someday in Brentwood,” said Gaughan. “And the chalk paintings are a way of demonstrating that street painting is a lot of fun.” But plenty of fun will be provided for the non-painters at this year’s event. Nine musical performances – on two entertainment stages – will play continuously throughout the weekend. Saturday’s musical lineup includes the Heritage High and Liberty High School big bands. Also scheduled are Bob Belanski’s Specdrum Orchestra, featuring Duane Lawrence, Holly Penfield and her father Ray Penfield; The Mar-

shall Otwell Jazz Quintet; Alvon Johnson and Friends, featuring Sax Man Danny Hull; and the Raul Ramirez Latin Jazz Quintet. Taking the stage Sunday will be the Swing Fever Sextet, featuring Denise Perrier; Anna Maria Flechero; and the Lloyd Gregory Jazz Septet. Dancers from Red Door Dance Studio will show off their fancy footwork during some of the musical performances, and artist Leroy Jackson will set up his easel near the stages, capturing the ambiance of the crowds and musicians in a painting to be auctioned off during the weekend. Record-breaking crowds are expected again this year, something Gaughan credits to the outstanding lineup and quality vendors, as well as

The Streets’ prime location. “We have never had more than 7,000 or 8,000 attend the event,” said Gaughan. “But last year we had close to 15,000, and I know the great venue had a lot to with that. I expect we will have about the same number this year. We’re looking forward to a great weekend.” The Art, Wine & Jazz Festival is hosted by The Streets of Brentwood and produced by the Brentwood Art Society, a nonprofit organization that provides scholarships and assistance to arts in the city. The festival runs Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Streets is located at 2565 Sand Creek Road in Brentwood.

Dining delight in the orchard by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer If you’re looking to spend a relaxing evening under the stars while supporting local agricultural, circle Aug. 27 on the calendar and attend the Dinner at the Orchard fundraiser in Discovery Bay. The event, held at 8091 Balfour Road (across the street from The Lakes) runs from 4 to 9 p.m. and is limited to 100 attendees. Dinner includes ribs and chicken prepared by John Papini plus salad, beans, garlic bread, corn and fresh grilled vegetables grown locally. Wine, beer and water are available. Tickets ($60) must be purchased

by Aug. 20. No tickets will be sold at the door. Following dinner, guests are invited to pick grapes in the orchard – bring a pair of scissors; bags will be provided – and enjoy the local agricultural ambiance. Proceeds from the second annual event go toward the creation of Tess’ Community Farm Kitchen, the dream of local Brentwood attorney Barbara Franz. Franz’s vision for the nonprofit organization – named for her mother, Tess – is to operate the community kitchen as a co-op, allowing residents to create pies, jams, jellies and syrups prepared from local farms to sell at market – thereby providing a venue for smaller farmers to

generate potentially thousands of extra dollars annually from bruised or raggedy-looking fruits that wouldn’t be sellable but would make a perfect fruit product. “Did you know that 60 percent of the farmers out here are working under 20 acres?” asked Franz in a previous interview with The Press. “So for them, every penny counts – and this is a great way to take a bunch of grapes and make some jelly, or use some less-than-perfect apricots and bake a pie, and get the profit back to them. A commercial kitchen for the average farmer is cost prohibitive, so this is a good solution.” To purchase tickets, call 800-800-5373 or buy online at www.farmmarket.tv.

Daffodils to decorate Discovery Bay At its upcoming meeting, the Discovery Bay Garden Club will host a presentation by Oakley resident Bob Spotts, past president of the American Daffodil Society (ADS). A hybridizer and registrant of 35 daffodil varieties, Spotts will discuss the history of cultivated daffodils and which varieties grow well in East County gardens. He’ll be assisted by Nancy Tackett, the current ADS webmaster and co-creator of DaffSeek, the online photographic encyclopedia of daffodils. The meeting will be held Friday, Sept. 9 at 10 a.m. at a Discovery Bay location to be announced. To RSVP, call Jerrie White at

925-513-8357 or e-mail jwhite1939@sbcglobal.net. As a follow-up to this informative presentation, the garden club will donate a bed of daffodil bulbs to the town of Discovery Bay to plant for spring blooming. The garden club meets once a month throughout the year at members’ homes and field trips to points of local interest throughout the Bay Area. Garden club members strive to broaden their knowledge of gardening while participating in local civic projects such as garden design and planting with local youth at the Orin Allen Youth Rehabilitation Facility in Byron.

Police: No impaired driving, no exceptions The Brentwood Police Department has announced that it will join nearly 10,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide in support of an intensive crackdown on impaired driving Aug. 19 through Sept. 5. The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over effort will operate a DUI/driver’s license checkpoint on Friday, Aug. 26 beginning at 6 p.m. at the intersection of Sand Creek Road at Shady Willow Lane. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2009, 10,839 people died nationwide in crashes in which a driver or motorcycle rider was at or above the legal blood-alcohol limit. The 21-to-24 age group recorded the highest percentage of alcohol-impaired driving fatalities in motor vehicle traffic crashes. “All too often, innocent, law-abiding people suffer tragic consequences and the loss of loved ones due to this careless disregard for human life,” said Brentwood Police Chief Mark Evenson. “Because we’re committed to ending the carnage, we’re intensifying enforcement during the crackdown. Since twice as many alcohol-impaired accidents occur over the weekend and four times as many occur at night, we will be especially vigilant during these high-risk times when impaired drivers are most likely to be on our roads.” The Contra Costa County Avoid the 25 Task Force will also deploy DUI/driver’s

Brentwood Police Chief Mark Evenson license checkpoints, multi-agency DUI task force operations and local roving DUI patrols during the 18-day Summer/Labor Day Campaign. “Our message is simple and unwavering: if we find you driving impaired, we will arrest you – no exceptions,” said Evenson. “Even if you beat the odds and manage to walk away from an impaired-driving crash alive, the trauma and financial costs of a crash or an arrest for driving while impaired can still destroy your life.” Violators will face jail time, loss of their driver’s licenses, or be sentenced to use ignition interlocks. Their insurance rates go up. Other financial hits can include higher insurance rates attorney fees, court costs, lost time at work and the potential loss of a job or job prospects. When family, friends and co-workers find out, violators can also face tremendous personal embarrassment and humiliation.

PHANTOM INCOME UPDATE I’m going to start with a disclaimer that I am NOT a tax accountant, so you should verify all of this with your tax expert prior to making any personal decisions. I’m just sharing some general information readily available at IRS.gov. I’m getting a lot of calls the past two weeks from people that want to hurry up and do a short sale before the end of this year, “...so they don’t have to pay taxes on it.” There are several myths out there about this issue that I wanted to shed some light on. If your lender forgives any portion of a loan that you owe them, you may owe cancellation of debt income, also known as “phantom income.” The first myth is that this ONLY applies to short sales, but that isn’t true. It’s for any forgiven debt of any kind. So it applies in a short sale, foreclosure, and any loan mod with principal forgiveness. The good news is that there are several exemptions to this tax. First, there is insolvency, where your debts exceed your assets. Then there is bankruptcy. There is also an exemption for non-recourse loans or purchase-money loans. These are loans used to buy or build a home, or seller carry-back, and

the loan has never been refinanced. Where people are getting confused is that several years ago President Bush signed the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act of 2007. This opened up the exemption a bit more to include loans that had been refinanced, or home equity loans for home improvement, but only up to the amount used to buy, build or substantially improve the property. It did NOT cover cash-out loans, 2nd homes, rental property or business property. The Act is good through the 2012 tax year, so it should cover transactions that close up until 12/31/2012. Many people think it expires 1/1/2012. Even with this extra time, I think it’s possible, even likely that Congress will extend it. When they first passed it, they thought we’d be back on our feet by 1/1/2013. Even if they don’t extend it, there are still the other exemptions you can fall back on. But check with your tax expert... If you have questions on this or any other real estate topic, call me at (925) 240MOVE (6683).

LeadAmerica conference unforgettable by Chiamaka Onwuzulike Correspondent This summer, I received the honor of being able to attend the Medicine and Healthcare conference at the UC Berkeley campus. The LeadAmerica conference I attended was an experience I will never forget. It taught me much more than leadership styles and how to become a doctor. LeadAmerica gave me the means to create long-lasting friendships and to learn more about myself. Founded in 2002, LeadAmerica’s mission is to broaden the outlook of promising middle and high school students by sending them to conferences focused on their point of interest. When I first arrived on campus, I was nervous. However, all my fears were put to rest when I became friends with a fabulous group of people. The difference between making friends and making LeadAmerica friends is that at LeadAmerica, you know that everyone you meet is on the same or similar path as yours. This makes creating meaningful relationships so much easier – a tool that is vital for life. At the opening session, speaker Stratis G. spoke about the impact of choices and how even the smallest choice can have an effect on the long-term. One thing he said that I will never forget is “… mortal life proves to be more precious than immortal life because we have a limited amount of time to leave a long-lasting impact.” This stuck with me because it made me realize that what I choose to do with my life is important and therefore I shouldn’t waste it being scared of what I might not be able to accomplish. That night, I promised myself that I wouldn’t let my doubts or the doubts of others get in the way of doing what I was passionate about, whatever it may be. Throughout the conference, different aspects revealed things to me that I hadn’t known about myself before. As a part of the medical team, everyone was placed into one of four healthcare teams consisting of 16 students. Each healthcare team had its own “breakout” room where various discussions could be held. This sort of environment made it easy for me to engage in the conversations and voice my opinion. This seemingly insignificant aspect revealed that I prefer smaller class sizes and should look for a college that offers more of that. We also had many opportunities to participate in workshops that gave us a feel for what it would be like to be a doctor. Each of us was able to perform physical examinations and conduct a medical interview with a mock patient. This gave me the tools to realize that engaging with a patient on a personal level is very important to me. Also, living in the dorms and eating the cafeteria food revealed that I enjoy the social aspect of dorm life but not so much the physical. By the time the conference was over, I had done so many things – things that I never thought I would ever get the chance to do. I had been an EMT for a day and engaged with a patient. I had figured out the cause of a disease and learned how to perfect my leadership skills. At the closing session, the speaker told

us something I will never forget. He said, “… how you have lived this conference is most likely how you will live life in college and beyond.” It made me think about how I had lived, not only the conference, but life in general. LeadAmerica made me realize that life is only as meaningful as one makes it. LeadAmerica changed my outlook on life, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to attend. The conference I have described is only one out many focuses LeadAmerica offers. I’d encourage anyone who’s interested in finding out more about its conferences to visit www.lead-america.org. I would also like to thank everyone who supported me and made it possible for me to be a part of this life-changing experience!

New Law on Short Sales What you Should Know to Protect Yourself by Joan Grimes, Esq. Effective July 15, 2011, California Code of Civil Procedure (“CCP”) 580(e) was amended to prohibit a deficiency judgment on any loan secured solely by a deed of trust on a 1-4 unit dwelling sold in a short sale. Enough legal jargon…what exactly does this mean and how does apply to you? First, it means that if your lenders agree to a short sale, it will release you from your personal liability on loans secured solely by a deed of trust against a dwelling of 1- 4 units. If the lenders want the short sale to go through, they will have to satisfied with the proceeds from the sale. The banks can no longer demand that borrowers sign promissory notes… AND no more tricking borrowers into believing that releasing of the lien was in fact releasing their personal liability. The lenders do not have to agree to the short sale, but if they agree, they cannot come after you once the short sale is completed. However, if you think this is too good to be true…you’re right. Keep reading! Second, there is no requirement for a release of personal liability on anything other than a consensual lien i.e. no requirement to release judgment lien or liens placed on the property such as by a homeowners association or taxing authority. These parties do not have to agree to accept the proceeds from the sale as payment in full. The forgiveness of personal liability also does not apply to borrowers who are corporations, limited liability companies, limited partnership or political subdivision of the state. In addition, it also does not prohibit the lender from obtaining a judgment for fraud with respect to the short sale or waste committed to the property. Third, CCP 580(e) does not release you from any tax liability. Remember, every short sale has tax implications. The IRS/State Franchise Tax Board wants to know two things: 1) Did you make any

AUGUST 19, 2011

COMMUNITY

money on the deal and 2) Did you borrow any money which was not repaid? If you made money on the deal, including taking out cash to buy another house, car, pay off credit card, you may have a gain. If you borrowed money which was not repaid, you will have Cancellation of Debt Income (“CODI”). CODI will be taxable to you at your current tax rate unless an exception applies. Make sure you know all the tax implications before the short sale is completed. If there is CODI, it can be discharged in bankruptcy, but only if the bankruptcy is filed prior to the short sale being completed. In conclusion, CCP 580(e) is a mixed bag for consumers. It may help reduce personal liability while increasing tax liability. There is no question that this new law is going to hurt the lenders and help the IRS and State Franchise Tax Board. This will be found money for the tax man. Borrowers will see the forgiveness of personal liability and completely disregard the tax consequences. Don’t be one of those people! If you are considering a short sale, seek legal advice prior to starting the short sale process. This is a complicated area of the law, but a bankruptcy or real estate attorney should be able to make to an analysis of your particular situation fairly quickly. I see people for a FREE 30 minute consultations at my offices located in Walnut Creek, Antioch and Brentwood.

Brentwood girl claims Miss California crown Three years ago, a 5-year-old girl named Bailee Henry began to dream. She entered her first National American Miss pageant in Santa Clara. She had no pageant experience but knew she loved being on stage. That year Bailee earned a place in the top 10 but didn’t make the Queen’s court. She did take home Most Photogenic, which earned her a trip to Nationals in BAILEE Anaheim and intensified her dream of one day becoming Miss California. In the same pageant in 2010, at the age of 6, Bailee was named First Runner Up in the Queen’s court. She attended Nationals for the second time and this time came home with Top Model First Runner Up out of 85 girls. Bailee was more determined than ever to make her dream come true, so she worked hard for the next eight months preparing for this year’s pageant. On July 30, competing against 50 girls in her 7-9 age division, Bailee was crowned 2011 Miss California Junior Pre-Teen. She also won Miss Photogenic, Most Promising Model, Miss Personality and Most Ticket Sales. She earned the First Runner Up title for Casualwear, Top Model and Talent, plus Second Runner Up in the Actress category. Bailee will now travel with National American Miss as visiting royalty and help crown other girls at pageants all over the United States. She was awarded $1,600 in cash, a modeling scholarship with John Robert Powers, a paid trip to Nationals, two tickets to Disneyland and two tickets to a tour of Hollywood while she attends Nationals on Thanksgiving week. Bailee is the daughter of Douglas and Kishla Henry of Brentwood. She enjoys shopping, taking pictures, modeling and being a Flyer for the Black Diamond AllStar Competition Cheer Team. She has enjoyed strong support from friends and family – including 16 of them cheering her on at the recent pageant. Bailee’s pageant sponsors were D&K Automotive Repair, Brentwood’s Co. Co. County Wine Company, Wayne E. Swisher Cement, Virtual Planet Visual Solutions, Brett and Dafne Swisher, Crystal Rice, Memaw Margaret, Memaw Judy and Papa and Mom, Dad, Skylar and Zackary. The National American Miss Pageants are a natural pageant for “Today’s Girl” and “Tomorrow’s Leaders.” The pageant program is based on inner beauty, poise and presentation, and offers an all-American spirit of fun for family and friends. Emphasis is placed on the importance of gaining self-

confidence, learning new skills and good attitudes about competition, and setting and achieving personal goals. The pageant seeks to recognize the accomplishments of each girl while encouraging her to set goals for the future. At the National pageant, Bailee will have the opportunity to win her share of more than $500,000 in cash and prizes – not to mention a shot at the prestigious title of National American Miss National Junior Pre-Teen Queen. – Contributed by Kishla Henry

However, the district now plans to raze the site and replace it with a new middle school. “It’s been a wonderful relationship (with the Pittsburg district),” said Maizie. “But they are building a wonderful new middle school and it’s time for us to move on.” Operating under the auspices of the Contra Costa ARC (Advocacy, Respect and Commitment), the community-based Lynn Center’s mission is to enhance and enrich the lives of children with special needs and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Since 1965, the center has provided early-intervention programs to preschool children with developmental delays or who are at risk for developmental disabilities. “By providing intervention early on,” said Maizie, “it is the hope that by the time they go to school they can enter into a

And we must find the ways and means to mitigate the imperfections. “If it (the new radio system) becomes a serious problem, the Brentwood PD will have dual band radios allowing us to operate on either the P25 800 digital trunking frequencies or conventional VHF frequencies, which do not have these vulnerabilities.” As for the Oakland Police Department’s situation, Joshi said she remains cautiously optimistic that the kinks in the new system will get worked out. A meeting between the City of Oakland, the Oakland Police Department and the makers of the P25 radios is scheduled

typical classroom with their peers.” And it’s a program that clearly works. According to Maizie, more than 80 percent of the children who attend the Lynn Center go on to kindergarten and beyond without additional intervention. Susan Chadd is one mother who is excited about the center’s move. For the past year, the Oakley resident has been driving her 3-year-old son to the Pittsburg location, a trip that can take as long as 45 minutes during rush-hour traffic. But the center’s new Oakley location will allow Chadd and other families to benefit from the services of the Lynn Center in significantly less time. “I can’t wait; I’m counting down the days,” said Chadd, a teacher at Vintage Park Elementary School in Oakley. “I’m so excitied we’re coming to Oakley. The experience for my son at Lynn Center has been phenomenal. The amount of his growth

But we have to balance that understanding with the public’s safety. We can’t have a product that doesn’t work.” Gomes intends to bring up the Wall Street Journal article and study during the next meeting of the East Bay Regional Communications System Authority, which oversees the radio program. “I’ll be passing on these articles to my group next week for comment,” said Gomes. “I’ll be interested to hear what they have to say.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

in one year can only be attributed to the Lynn Center’s early-intervention program. This is an amazing program and an amazing move for all of the far East County families.” According to Rogers, the financial details of the arrangement will mirror the Lynn Center’s previous contract with Pittsburg, where services are rendered in kind: the dollars the OUESD would normally pay to the Lynn Center for their seven students will offset the center’s financial obligation to the district. And, added Rogers, should the OUESD need to open the remaining classrooms at Almond Grove for the 2012-13 school year, it shouldn’t be a problem. “If we decide to open in 2012-13 there’s still ample room to accommodate everyone,” said Rogers. “If this happens I have little doubt we can all co-habitate.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Gateway graces downtown Brentwood by Samie Hartley Staff Writer

Locals have always known that downtown Brentwood includes the commercial area between First and Second streets. But as of this week, everyone passing through will know they’ve set foot in the historic heart of the city: the gateway monument has come to town. A dozen workers installed the new Oak Street Gateway Monument this week, creating an official entrance to the downtown area. Designed by architect Lance Carnnell of SDG Architecture in Brentwood, the new monument is a metaphorical gate into the heart of Brentwood. “I wanted to design something that is uniquely Brentwood,” Carnnell said. “What sets Brentwood apart is the agrarian culture. You drive around and you see the farms, the fruit orchards, the produce stands. All this agriculture used to be divided by fences and gates. With this design, we are opening the gate and inviting people to experience Brentwood.” At the center of the design rests a multi-layered rendering in steel of Mt. Diablo and its surrounding hills. Across the arch reads “Downtown Brentwood” on both sides. On the supporting pillars will be set two tactile, way-finding maps of the downtown area; local landmarks will be raised to be conspicuous to the touch. The pillars also feature insets of

Carnnell hopes the community will take time to discover all the little details the archway has to offer. With the main arch installed this week, the additional art elements, including the maps, will be installed in the upcoming weeks. To finish it off, LED lighting will be installed between the hills to give them depth and keep the sign visible at night.

Carnnell conceived the gateway design more than a year ago. When in 2008 and ’09 the city held community workshops on downtown revitalization, residents suggested that a public art element form an archway as a welcoming point to the downtown area. Archways are nothing new in Brentwood. According to local historian Kathy Leighton’s book “Footprints in the Sand,” local architect J.W. Williams constructed an archway at the southwest

entrance to City Park in 1929. It was a grey-beige arch made of wood and plaster. The new gateway, fabricated by Valley Iron Works in Lodi, is made of steel and concrete and weights more than five tons. The ironwork and installation for the gateway, as well as the smaller entry monument on Second Street, cost approximately $140,000, according to Senior Community Development Analyst Kwame Reed. When the three main pieces of the archway went up on Monday, passersby took a moment to observe the action and take photos and video on their phones. Carnnell said the feedback he’s heard so far has been positive and he looks forward to Saturday’s Farmers’ Market, when hundreds will pass through downtown. Reed also received positive feedback. “We’re very pleased with the design, and people seem to like it, from what I’ve heard,” he said. “The gateway is something neat to help identify the downtown area.” While the closure of Oak Street between Brentwood Boulevard and First Street did create traffic congestion Monday, Reed said he’s grateful for the public’s patience. Street closures have been an inconvenience throughout the summer, but according to Reed, the downtown streetscape project should be completed by October. The next step in the plan is to complete the fountain at the corner of Oak and First streets, which was also designed by Carnnell. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Carbonous Oxide Otherwise known as Carbon Monoxide, or CO, “is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas which is slightly lighter than air. It is highly toxic to humans and animals in higher quantities, although it is also produced in normal animal metabolism in low quantities, and is thought to have some normal biological functions.” According to Wikipedia.com that is…according to meat packaging plants in the United States, CO is used to create a bright red pigment that keeps the meat looking fresh much longer than if the meat were to be “naturally packed.” Last but not least, from a loan standpoint, CO can cost homebuyers an extra $100. As of July 1 2011, homes in California (with attached garages and fireplaces) are required to have a carbon monoxide detector attached to the home’s electrical wiring and also have a battery back-up. The only exception to this rule are homes without attic access – in these cases battery operated only detectors will pass the “test.” And when I say “test,” I really mean appraisal. Appraisers – as with any other service provided by any other business in California – charge a fee for their service. However, unlike every other service required in California, appraisers sometimes have to come back out to finalize their service. If during an appraisal the appraiser finds the home does not meet code, guidelines, or regulations, they are obligated – by law, and

at the risk of losing their license – to note these findings on their appraisal. It is then up to the parties in the real estate transaction to fix the issues called out by the appraiser. The appraiser is then called back out – at the cost of an additional $100 for re-inspection – to sign off on the repairs and finalize his/her report. In other words, if you are in the process of purchasing a home and know an appraisal will be completed, make sure you locate the CO monitor before the appraiser comes out. If you can’t locate the CO monitor it is more than likely because the home does not have one. Talk to your Realtor about this before you have your lender order the appraisal. Not only will it save you $100, but more importantly, it could potentially save your life. According to acting State Fire Marshal Tonya Hoover, “Carbon monoxide is a silent killer, each year claiming the lives of an average of 480 people and sending more than 20,000 people to emergency rooms across the nation.” To ensure you save yourself $100, make sure the home has a CO monitor. To ensure your CO monitor is on the list of State Fire Marshal approved devices, and could potentially save the life of a loved one, visit http://osfm.fire.ca.gov.

Road work to close Somersville Road CalTrans and the Contra Costa Transportation Authority recently announced a round of road closures in Antioch as workers continue to widen Highway 4 to four lanes in each direction. According to a press release from the California Department of Transportation, both directions of Somersville Road will be closed overnight for an estimated three weeks at the intersection of Somersville and Highway 4. Beginning this week, workers will block off the Somersville Road underpass Monday through Thursday nights from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.; Friday nights from 11 p.m.

to 7 a.m. Work on that part of Highway 4 is scheduled to be completed by Sept. 2. “This closure is to ensure crew and public safety while crews install temporary supports for construction of one of the new bridges at Somersville Road,� the press release states. Signs will be in place directing motorists around the work zone via Delta Fair Boulevard and Century Boulevard. Drivers should expect delays and allow extra time for their commute.

This forces air from the lungs, expelling the object. Children who eat too much food at once or eat pieces that are too large are susceptible to choking. According to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention, more than 17,000 children 14 and younger were treated in emergency departments for choking in 2001; approximately 60 percent of those cases were food related.

Camarra said she once employed the Heimlich maneuver on her own son when he was a toddler, so when she saw the kindergartener struggling, she instinctively jumped in to help – and knew what she was doing.

Experience Chabad Editor: As a Jew living in Brentwood, I would like to thank you for the articles in the Aug. 14 issue of The Press in which Jewish life in East Contra Costa County was covered. My participation in Chabad of the Delta greatly enriches my spiritual life, and I feel fortunate to have this Jewish outreach organization close to home. I discovered that all Jews, regardless of their level of observance, are warmly welcomed at the Chabad! This was something of which I was previously unaware. The local Chabad of the Delta provides me with a variety of ways to express my Judaism. Besides traditional Shabbat (Sabbath) services, I’ve attended a number of Women’s Circle gatherings, which may include a brief cooking lesson along with the camaraderie, the highly acclaimed Jewish Learning Institute classes and also barbecues for the entire family. I would like to encourage other Jews in East Contra Costa County, regardless of the level at which they may or may not practice their faith, to see and experience what Chabad has to offer them. Also, by the way, all fruits and vegetable crops, including grapes, are kosher. The manner in which they are processed determines if they remain Kosher or not. Bonni Bergstrom Brentwood

Palm trees and tacky signs Editor: When I moved here, I thought Brentwood was an up-and-coming city with excellent money management in place. My tax dollars would be well spent. Well, I have to congratulate whoever approved those very expensive palm tress for downtown. This again is “Brentwood,” not Miami, Florida. Whatever possessed anyone to put tropical trees in a farming/ bedroom community in California? And I understand they cost in excess of $165,000.

The cost is excessive and ridiculous. You could have saved a couple of city employees’ jobs for that kind of money. My other concern is the signage for the Wine Festival. Could you possibly have come up with something less tasteless than a French cabaret dancer with a wine glass tilted at her side? Try to make this something that will attract all family members, not just the drinkers. It is supposed to be an Art, Wine & Jazz Festival. Try and dig up a little class for a change, and redesign the signs to be more attractive, not tacky. Diane Blair Brentwood

Chaos enforcement inconsistent Editor: In response to F. Huerta in your Aug. 13 issue: “Canine Chaos not Neighborly.” Please tell me where in Brentwood dog barking is banned? I want to move there! I have lived in Brentwood for over 25 years. When we first moved into our area, right next to an elementary school, we had a very quiet neighborhood and all our neighbors were considerate of each other, and even the level of noise coming from the school was bearable. That has certainly changed over the years. I would love to be able to sit on my back patio and enjoy the evening or any part of my day; however, sometimes the dogs barking are so out of control that many times I feel I am living in a dog kennel. Being able to sleep past 7 a.m. or taking a nap is non-existent because of the “Canine Chaos.” Besides the dogs barking at all hours, I have the added noise of the intercom announcements coming from the school’s parking lot. I guess it is important that the empty cars that are parked need to know the announcements for the day – also, the school finds it necessary to have the gardener use the blower at 7 a.m. (sometimes earlier). Finally, not to overlook the constant skateboarding that is allowed on the school grounds where signs are posted banning boarding. All the laws and codes do not apply in my Brentwood neighborhood.

EDITOR

through all the legal recourses to no avail. Please let me know how I can get laws and codes enforced in my area of Brentwood. Apparently, in some areas of Brentwood, “Chaos” is allowed to prevail. M. Mikkulas Brentwood

Old formula insufficient for new reality Editor: This letter is in response to Mr. Coss’ letter to the editor titled “No East County Fire Tax” in the Aug. 12 edition of the Press. In general I would agree with you that our government does not know how to manage money. I would even go as far as saying that you and I could examine the fire budget and find some areas to cut. However, the biggest problem for East County fire is not over spending but lack of revenue. The property tax rates that are given to the district for fire protection were set in the late 1970s, when it was all farm communities, and the rates have never increased. The population in East County has skyrocketed but we are still living on a 1970s revenue formula. With increased population we need more public safety to respond to the increased call volume. Our local firefighters, who are busier than those in many Bay Area cities, are making one-half of what their colleagues are making. Lack of competitive wages leads to turnover and new, less tenured, emergency workers. We could thank our County Board of Supervisors for not fixing this revenue issue years ago, but instead I urge all East County residents to attend the fire board meetings, speak to the firefighters and educate themselves. I personally support the tax because I want seasoned firefighter/ paramedics responding to my house when my family is in need. Michael Towns Brentwood

Brentwood’s Hansen earns first win For the second week in a row, a firsttime winner emerged in the Antioch Speedway’s highly competitive Limited Late Model division. Melissa Hansen of Brentwood celebrated her first victory on Saturday after barely escaping a surging Larry Damitz, who worked his way to her back bumper from the back of the pack. Hansen popped from her car screaming in excitement as she pulled next to Damitz in victory lane. Asked what it felt like to score a victory in the division dominated by veterans like Damitz, she was speechless, and simply held up two trembling hands. Damitz rushed to congratulate her. “You drove a great race,” Damitz said. “I could hear you trying to pass me,” Hansen replied. “I was trying hard not to mess up. I knew eventually you would be right there.” Last week’s winner, Jim Freethy of Danville, finished third, followed by another division winner, veteran Mike Gustafson of Concord. Early leader Ken Rhoades of El Sobrante pulled off with broken rear suspension midway through the race. Fred Ryland of Brentwood, a top runner, was eliminated in a first-lap, first-turn pileup. Dan Gonderman freshened the engine in his All Star Wingless Sprint Car last week. It made a big difference on Saturday night, as he was untouchable in the main event. The hometown hero and current Wingless Sprint Car division point leader garnered his fourth victory this season.

Melissa Hansen of Brentwood celebrates after taking the checkered flag in the Limited Late Model event at the Antioch Speedway on Saturday. “I stuck with the middle (groove),” Gonderman told second-place-finisher Roy Fisher, a friend and competitor for many seasons. Fisher put in a spectacular effort as he tried a lower line to catch Gonderman. They finished a car length apart.

“He (Gonderman) is tough,” Fisher said in victory lane. “All I can say is that I tried real hard. I gave it my all.” American River College student Nick Viscussi of Vacaville applied everything he learned in automotive technology in build-

ing his Hobby Stock to win his first race ever. “Four years in go-karts, four years in stock car racing, and it finally happened,” Viscussi said. “I built this car from scratch. How do I feel? Blessed by God, happy, excited, relieved. My dad and I worked so hard, so long at it.” Cole Oreta of Vacaville was flying as he moved into second behind Viscussi. Brad Myers, with fiancé and co-pilot Melissa Hansen, fresh from her Late Model win, finished third. In the Mini Trux division, veteran driver “Rocket” Ray Bunn of San Jose won in a veteran truck. He battled Jon Haney of Brentwood to the finish line. “Things are always better when you win,” Bunn laughed. “I made some adjustments after finishing second last week. This truck’s been with me a long time – since I raced on pavement back in 2001.” After racing his truck at the old Altamont Speedway, Bunn converted the vehicle for racing on Antioch Speedway’s clay. It was both a sad and happy occasion for Dwarf Car winner Tony Carmignani of Alameda. Carmignani lost his son, Anthony, just two weeks earlier. “I had him on my side tonight,” a tearful Carmignani said in victory lane. “This one’s for him.” Second-place finisher Nick Squatritto of San Jose gave Carmignani a long, silent hug. – Contributed by Mike Adaskaveg

Water sport enthusiasts looking for more by Michael Dixon Correspondent

In 1993, a small group led by Bill Honeycutt decided to lay the groundwork for a club to help those interested in watersports meet each other. The result was the Bay Area Water Ski Club (BAWSC). Now, 18 years later, the BAWSC is 56 members strong and hopes to expand. Gwen Cauthren, who has been the organization’s membership chair for nearly 10 years, has plans for the club’s growth. Rather than host competitive events, what the BAWSC does is host meet-and-greets where watersports enthusiasts can get together and arrange their own private get-together. “We’re a group of people trying to promote the networking of people who own boats with the people who don’t; who all have a passion for watersports,” Cauthren said. The BAWSC runs all year. Meetings are held usually twice a month between June and September; once a month between October and May. Members of all

Students learn about boat safety during a Bay Area Water Ski Club boat driver clinic. skill levels are encouraged to go to their meet-and-greet events. “We hold events as formats to get peo-

ple to socialize,” Cauthren said. “We do camping events, houseboat trips, one-day events, barbecues; we have a Christmas

party every year.” While BAWSC members hail from all across the Bay Area, nearly all the organization’s events are held on the Delta. The most recent event was a camping trip at Vieira’s Resort by Isleton. While membership comprises mostly those in their late 40s to early 50s, 20somethings are also represented. The definition of a membership isn’t restricted to a single person. There are plenty of couples and families in the BAWSC. Each of those groups makes up one membership. According to Cauthren, the BAWSC is split nearly in half between those who own boats and those who participate in water sports but don’t own boats. “If people like to go out boating, they’re going to need to find people to help them on their boats,” Cauthren added. We want people to spend three to four hours with the owner and hopefully form a friendship, or at least an association so they know they’re comfortable with those folks.” Prospective members can visit www. bawsc.org or call Cauthren at 707-539-0510.

No wine scored less than 90 during the blind taste tests. The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2010 Devil’s Daughter and 2010 Chardonnay also earned the Best of Class designation. Wine lovers recently got the chance to taste the awardwinning wines during Bloomfield’s latest release party, held last weekend at Frog Hollow Farms in Brentwood, not too far ON THE COVER: Brentwood vintner Becky Bloomfield of Bloomfield Vineyards shows off four of her award-winning wines – including the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, which earned a double gold medal at the California State Fair this year.

from the vineyard. The wines were paired with decadent stonefired pizzas. Bloomfield’s wines can also be tasted at the Co. Co. County Wine Company in Downtown Brentwood. “You get that first ribbon and it’s like, ‘Oh yeah, I want more of those,’” Bloomfield said. “It’s an interesting thing. You’re being judged amongst peers – people who love wine like I do.” This isn’t the first time Bloomfield has taken home awards for its cabernet sauvignon. The 2008 vintage took the silver medal, earning 92 points, at the 2010 State Fair. It also claimed silver medals that year at the Orange County Wine Competition and the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. At the 2009 State Fair, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon earned an array of awards: a gold medal (scoring 95 points), Best in California, Best in Class and Best of Greater Bay Appellations. It also took home the silver medal at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and the bronze at the Orange County Wine Competition. “Bloomfield has always done well,” said Kem Pence,

coordinator of the State Fair’s wine and cheese competition. “They’re making great wines.” Other award-winning wines from past years include the 2009 Viognier, 2009 Pinot Grigio, 2009 Devil’s Daughter, 2009 Chardonnay, 2008 Sauvignon Blanc, 2008 Pinot Noir and the 2006 Syrah. Strangely enough, Becky Bloomfield never set out to become a winemaker. As a farmer, she needed a way to show wineries that her grapes were top quality. The family has been farming in Brentwood since 1920, and started growing vines in 1999. It wasn’t long before Bloomfield Vineyards was established. The grapes are grown in Brentwood and bottled in Livermore. This is Bloomfield’s seventh vintage, and it’s a tradition she hopes to continue, helping to bring more notoriety to wineries all over the East Bay. “You don’t have to be a big guy to win the big titles,” she said. “You don’t have to be an expensive wine to be good.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

When the spine smarts When I finally decided that pain medication wasn’t getting rid of my chronic back pain - it was only covering up the symptoms, and for only a short time - I looked for a better way to manage the pain while maintaining my daily routine. To maintain a SENIOR healthy back and ORNER spine, you need to move. The irony: the first place to begin your back regimen is while you’re sleeping. If you prefer your side, bend your knees and put a small pillow between them. If you MARLA lie on your back, put LUCKHARDT the pillow under your knees. For those who choose to sleep on their stomach, the pillow goes under the abdomen. I’ve tried this, and it helps. No more getting out of bed in the morning with a groan! If you need to stand for any period of time, bend your knees slightly to take the stress off your lower back. Wear shoes that have good support and shift your body weight from foot to foot. While sitting down, always sit in a chair that gives your back good support. If you keep a lumbar support in your car, use it. If not, roll up a small towel and place it at the small of your back. Keep your knees level with your hips, and keep your feet flat. If you need to lift something and

C

don’t have help nearby, make sure you lift with your legs and not your back. When lifting an object, hold it close to you. All movements should be slow and careful. Always turn your body from the feet up and not from the waist. Try to keep items you need often at shoulder level. Use stomach, leg and arm muscles in lieu of your back. Try to take a walk every day. Going at a nice easy pace (starting with 10 minutes a day) will get you going. As you increase that by a few minutes each day, you’ll get to a half hour, a perfect way to start your day or end your evening. You can even take three 10-minute walks per day, as each step gives you strength and stamina. Invite a friend to share the walk with you and you’ll be amazed at how fast the time goes. A daily walk keeps your back and leg muscles stretched and strong, and helps you keep a healthy weight, which makes an enormous impact on your back. Do some light stretches first by raising your arms straight up in the air, one at a time. Very slowly, reach as high as you comfortably can as you feel your back muscles lengthen a little. Always do things slowly to avoid pulling a muscle or tendon. Check with your doctor before doing any new exercises, but I guarantee: your physician will support your ambition.
