Guidelines for gifting

by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Oakley City Council members sat among the audience on Tuesday for a special work session to discuss the city’s General Plan. The session was aimed at facilitating a dialogue between the public and city staff about the city’s future. After weeks of absorbing public misgivings regarding city growth and development, the council scrapped discussion items for the regularly scheduled council meeting in order to dedicate time to educate the public about the General Plan, which serves as a blueprint to guide the city toward achieving its vision of being a well-balanced, sustainable community. City staff and about 40 residents engaged in an open forum to discuss the state of Oakley and where it’s going. Residents were allowed to speak freely without time limitations and receive answers to their questions regarding land use, zoning and traffic. Following the two-

akley Police Chief Chris Thorsen, along with some of the city’s finest, thanks the city at Tuesday’s City Council meeting for a special proclamation recognizing the Oakley Police Department for preserving peace and protecting life and property in Oakley. “Every day, our city’s dedicated law enforcement officers put themselves at risk to keep our community safe, selflessly risking their lives to protect our families against crime,” said Mayor Carol Rios. Following the reading of the proclamation, Vice Mayor Pat Anderson presented Thorsen with a framed photo of Oakley’s police force.

hour meeting, Mayor Carol Rios said she was pleased with the participation and hopes more work sessions will be held in the future. City Manager Bryan Montgomery moderated the session and explained that local growth is important, since development provides fund-

Energy Commission comes to Oakley by Samie Hartley

If approved, the Oakley Generating Station, seen in this rendering, will supply power to 600,000 homes.

Staff Writer More than 100 Oakley residents came out to support the proposed Oakley Generating Station during the California Energy Commission’s first visit to the city this week. Commission Vice Chairman James Boyd, who presided over the event, said he was impressed with Monday’s turnout for the informational hearing that followed a site tour in which approximately 60 people visited the location of the proposed power plant. If approved, the plant will be built on 22 acres of the former DuPont property on Bridgehead Road. District V Supervisor Federal Glover said it was good to see so many people interested in the project, especially since the project has the potential to create new jobs that will benefit many of Oakley’s residents: “This project will allow us the opportunity to put people who are not working to work with local

hire. It will give us the opportunity to reach a lot of the economic demands within the community, and it’s going to put a lot of labor folks to work in terms of construction of the site, so we really have a jewel here.” Radback Energy Senior Vice President and Project Manager Greg Lamberg said if the project is approved, more than 700 union labor jobs would be created during the three-year construction period, which will be a “huge shot of adrenalin to the economy,” as $4 million

in supplies will be purchased locally and $6 million is projected to be generated in sales tax revenue. The plant will also generate up to $10 million in property taxes each year, creating funds to be used to benefit local services such as police and fire protection, street maintenance and schools. Steven Nosanchuck, president of the Oakley Chamber of Commerce, said the financial gains for the community are greatly needed. “It’s important to me to see Oakley thrive again. Like most communities

in our country, Oakley has been hit hard by the current economic crisis. The power plant being discussed brings jobs to Oakley and muchneeded revenue to our city coffers. We’re a small city. To be discussing property tax revenue in the ballpark of $10 million a year is very encouraging. It makes me much more hopeful about the economic future of our city.” More than 20 residents spoke in favor of the project, citing creation of jobs as the most significant benefit. “There’s no question times are hard for most folks,” said Michael Hernandez. “During this economic crisis, with so many jobs that have been lost across California, the Oakley Generating Station will offer some relief.” Marco Gonzalez, representing a local labor union, said it’s important to hire locally for the project and hopes there will be official documentation that stipulates local see Power page 15A

Veterans on parade in Antioch by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

Thousands of people lined Second Street in downtown Antioch Wednesday to view the soldiers, vintage cars, macho motorcyclists, flag-waving scouts, marching bands, waving politicians and a bagpiper in the nearly hourlong Second Annual Veterans Day Parade. “So far it’s been wonderful,” said Antioch resident Bruna DelChiaro. “I’m a very patriotic person. I love my country and want to honor these young men that are giving their lives for us. I’m really proud of our mayor (Jim Davis) that he continues with this. I’m happy to see that we keep this day alive. The young people don’t seem to have the patriotism that we oldsters do. And I hope that this kind of brings to mind to them what these young men are doing: they are giving their lives for their freedom.” Many of the younger kids sitting on the curb seemed more appreciative of the giving of candy occasionally being thrown their way by parade participants. But one dad was observed showing his 4-year-old son how to salute the passing soldiers. While many vintage cars with roaring engines made the half-mile trek from E Street to the Antioch Marina, the most unusual was a

Thousands of people lined downtown Antioch to honor America’s veterans Wednesday. ’55 Chevy displaying the names of 3,578 Vietnam prisoners of wara or missing in action, similar to the Vietnam Memorial wall in Washington D.C. Max Loffgren, a twice-wounded Vietnam vet, rebuilt the car in 1993 and has traveled across the country several times displaying it at patriotic events. “We made it home; these guys did not – and we didn’t want to forget them,” said Loffgren. “Over 600 of these guys came home alive during the course of the war. And today we are still missing 1,734 of them. As a result of the war, a lot of them may have ended up in China, Czechoslovakia, Cuba, any of the communist bloc countries. According to the National League of Families, they think about 100 of these guys may still be alive.”

The parade actually started in the air as a restored Vietnam-era Huey assault helicopter flew over Rivertown containing the grand marshals: Bataan Death March survivor Vincent Silva; Richard Lundin, a major general in the Northern California Army Reserve and Leo Fontana, a World War II veteran. The parade kicked off on the ground with police motorcycles, a fire truck, color guard and bagpiper followed by Antioch and Oakley City Council members, Antioch school board members and recently elected Congressman John Garamendi. Music was provided by the Antioch, Deer Valley and Liberty high school marching bands. Watching the festivities near the start of the parade was Antioch resident Julius

Benveniste, a vet who was wearing a bronze star cap. He was drafted into the First Cav (as he put it) 8th division in the Korean War in 1951. Like many vets, he doesn’t say much about his service. “I was young; I was 21 years old,” he said. “It’s good for everybody to go in the service, I think. Besides serving your country, I really became a man instead of a boy. You realize how lucky you are. I was in Korea for the amount of time I needed to be there. I came home. I’m lucky. That’s about it, I guess.” Loffgren was similarly low-key when asked about his Vietnam experience. “I was in the infantry,” he said. “I was wounded twice, but I made it home just fine and that’s that.” He was more forthcoming on the meaning of Veterans Day. “We would like to thank all of the veterans and the community for their support and to support our military in Afghanistan and Iraq today and all corners of the world. A lot of the troops are in other places that you don’t hear about. And their families miss them. And we want to make sure we honor them and keep them in our prayers.” The parade’s loudest participants were the revving, roaring Patriot Sentinel motorcycle riders, a bunch of bearded, bandana-wearing, gum-chewing, tough-looking Hells Angelstype guys who provide welcome-home ceremonies for returning soldiers. The festivities wrapped up with four Calvary Temple Saddle Club horse riders and Sheba, a 35-year-old retired horse led on foot. Those needing another parade fix won’t have to wait long. The annual Holiday DeLites Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony takes place in just three weeks on Dec. 5, traveling along the same route and with many of the same participants.

Gobbler Bob feathers the nest Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor – “Gobbler Bob,” as he is increasingly becoming known – has blown past his original goal of 300 donations of $8 for turkeys for needy families and has revised his goal to 500. “I can’t believe how people have picked up on this,” said Taylor after being informed that donations had reached 378. “It’s a wonderful thing that so many people want to help other people. Of course, the idea of seeing the mayor in a turkey suit might have something to do with it.” Taylor launched his The Mayor Is A Turkey fundraiser four weeks ago with a goal of 300 donations of $8, a figure designed to drive home the idea that each donation is personal, and will buy a bird for one family during the holidays. The beneficiary of the program is the Brentwood Regional Community Chest, which provides food and toys for 500 families every Christmas.

Having exceeded his original goal of 300 turkeys, Taylor has upped the ante, and upped the payoff as well. He is already commit-

ted to appear dressed in a turkey suit at the BRCC sorting and distribution events on Dec. 18 and 19, but if the goal of 500 is reached, he will also appear on a date to be determined at a public park and spend the day with residents posing with him dressed in the turkey suit. The goal is certainly attainable: The Brentwood Police Officers Association has challenged the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District to see who can muster the most donations, and the Brentwood Post Office is hawking the birds as well. Just about the only question remaining is: Who will bring the cranberry sauce?

Leonid light show a slashy, flashy affair Tuesday’s meteor display predicted to be robust Nov. 18, 2001 was only an hour old when Leia and I hauled ourselves and a sleeping bag built for two up a hill above Mt. Diablo’s Back Creek Canyon and watched the millennium’s first fullfledged meteor storm explode above the ragged black of the mountain’s profile. TAKE IT I’d been stalking UTSIDE meteor showers for decades, staking out observation spots from campsites to prairies to remote rural roads, where I’d remove my car’s headrest, use it as GER a pillow and lie on ERICKSON my back on the cool pavement, keeping a peripheral eye peeled for headlamps heading my way. Mt. Diablo struck me as a good venue. My only concern: North Peak rises 3,557’ above the horizon; the Summit, 3,849’ – a significant slice of sky viewed from our lowly hilltop. We’d see fewer shining slashes than meteorphiles on the flatlands. My worries were unwarranted. As Leo slinked over the mountain, meteors flamed so fast and furious I couldn’t have kept track of them with a clicker.

O

This was Leia’s first meteor gig. And I, like an idiot, tried to give verbal expression to how mind-bogglingly exceptional this A.D. 2001 installment was. And she, like someone watching golf for the first time as Tiger Woods goes on a birdie binge in the wind and rain at Carnoustie (“Hey, that game must be easy!”), just settled back and enjoyed the show. After a while, I shut up and we watched the storm in peace. A meteor isn’t what its nickname implies. It’s not a “shooting star.” Our Sun is a star, large enough to fit 109 Earths across its diameter. The average meteor is the size of a grain of sand. But when that grain zips through our upper atmosphere at up to 50 miles per second, its flare-out is stunning. I’ve seen meteors spewing flaming green tails and meteors with no tail, tumbling through the night like glowing knuckleballs. I’ve seen cigar-shaped meteors flying sideways, and chunks that split in two as Earth’s atmosphere found chinks in their armor. I’ve seen flameouts so bright they made me blink, and fireballs that fell to the horizon slowly, dripping molten gold in their wake. Earth collects about 400 tons of meteoric debris every day, the lion’s share of which is so microscopic that it can float around for years before descending see Outside page 7A


NOVEMBER 13, 2009

Outside from page 6A to our planet’s surface. A tiny minority of the debris is large enough to create that brilliant burst we see from ground level. And yet on an average night under a clear sky graced by low light pollution, the patient sky watcher can spot three or four meteors per hour, increasing to seven or eight by dawn. There’s a lot of stuff up there. The light show gets serious when Earth in its voyage around the Sun passes through a special kind of debris. For billions of years, fragments left over from the formation of the outer planets have crossed the plane of Earth’s orbit in their long and elongated journey around the Sun. As these mountains of ice approach our star, solar radiation begins to vaporize their surfaces and solar winds blow the gas and dust rearward, creating comas many times the diameter of Earth and tails millions of miles long. You might have seen two shining examples of these ice mountains back in 1996 and ’97. Their names were Hyakutake and Hale-Bopp, and their tails were magnificent. We know those ice mountains as comets. One comet in particular, labeled 55P/Tempel-Tuttle, slingshots around the Sun every 33 years on a path proximate to the plane of Earth’s orbit. Its detritus is spread through long, narrow corridors of space like permanent oil spills. (By “narrow� we mean approximately 10 Earth diameters wide.) Every mid-November, Earth plows through 55P/Tempel-Tuttle’s

OUTDOORS

trails. We call the event the Leonid meteor shower. The shelf life of 55/P TempelTuttle’s debris streams is long. Mark your calendars for the night of Tuesday, the 17th of November. On that night, Earth will bulls-eye the rich streams the comet discharged in A.D. 1466 and 1533. Normally, a ZHR (Zenithal Hourly Rate) of 100 would qualify as a respectable Leonid shower. Astronomers are predicting Tuesday’s display to top out at 500 or more per hour, boosting its status from “shower� to “half storm.� The peak should occur just before sunset on the West Coast, and be most spectacular over the Pacific and Asia. We on the West Coast are lucky that we’ll catch the back end of it. Meteor watching is easy – no knowledge of astronomical facts or figures required. The Leonids’ radiant area is the constellation Leo, but meteors scoot in from all points of the sky. All you need is a good pair of eyes and clear skies. Scope out an open spot as far from city lights as feasible. Bring a blanket and pillow, a thermos of your favorite hot beverage and a portable recliner. The ultimate posture for meteor watching is the one that allows for the widest field of vision: flat on your back. (The naked eye is a far better meteor-sighting instrument than binoculars or a telescope). So stretch out on your chaise longue with your feet to the east, relax your focus and take in the whole sky at once. And enjoy the show.

TAX CREDIT EXTENDED AND ENLARGED Now I can officially report that the popular homebuyer’s tax credit HAS been extended, and on top of that, they have enlarged the qualification requirements. This is welcome news for those buyers who were frustrated at not being able to close escrow on a home before the prior November 30, 2009 deadline. The tax credit has been extended to include homes that close escrow by April 30, 2010. And there is an additional 60 day extension if the home is in contract prior to April 30, so it really goes to the end of June, 2010. The credit is still $8,000 for first time homebuyers (those that have not owned a home during the past three years). But they have enlarged the qualifications to also include existing homeowners, as long as they have lived in their current residence for at least five years. However, the credit for existing homeowners will be $6,500, not the full $8,000. They qualify for the credit no matter if they are buying a more or less expensive home than their current home. In addition to the homeownership quali-

fication change, they have also enlarged the income qualifications for the credit. It will now be $125,000 for single tax filers and $225,000 for those that file jointly. This is almost double the current limits of $75,000 single and $150,000 joint. Another wrinkle they added to the new law is that you can claim the credit on your 2009 taxes, even if you complete the home purchase in 2010. So if you plan on buying a home in 2010 and think you will qualify for this credit, talk to your tax professional about possibly filing an extension so you can file your taxes as late as possible. The purchase price of the home available for the credit is a maximum of $800,000. And you still don’t have to pay the credit back, as long as the home remains your principal residence for 3 years after you close escrow.

Trevor’s Weekly Mortgage Matters By Trevor Frey

Accident from page 8A we’re putting in another application, but it might be spring before we hear back.” Smith said that in the meantime she will continue to communicate with parents, the city and Oakley police to enhance and ensure the safety of Orchard Park’s students: “We’re working on perhaps getting parent volunteers with reflective vests from the police department to see the kids off campus and around the corner to their homes. Everyone is doing what they can, but it’s been baby steps. There’s a lot of red tape involved.”

Oakley Chief of Police Chris Thorsen said his department remains committed to keeping the community safe: “We’re always looking for ways to make our schools safer, and our officers are doing the best they can. We’re looking into providing safety training for parents and we will continue to work with the schools as we always have. “In the end, we want our driving community to be cautious around the schools and to understand that an extra five or 10 minutes (in the car) isn’t going to make a difference in the long run. The safety of the students is what’s important.”

CMG Mortgage, a leading wholesale mortgage lender headquartered in San Ramon, has reintroduced their popular Home Ownership Accelerator (HOA) home loan in five states: California, Washington, Arizona, Colorado and Minnesota. This innovative, “all-in one”, first position HELOC (home equity line of credit) – similar to loans used for many years in Great Britain and Australia – is once again available for both home purchases and refinances here. In 2007 nearly $1 billion HOA loans were funded, and now they may make even more sense for certain borrowers – particularly since people have learned they can no longer rely exclusively on rising home values to build equity, rather they must rely on their own financial common sense and use debt wisely. Think of this product as turning you into the bank of you. Instead of your paychecks being deposited into a standard checking account and allowing the bank to hold your money, where it more or less sits stagnant, your paychecks are deposited directly into your loan. Money left in your mortgage reduces the principal balance on which interest is calculated, thereby saving thousands of dollars in interest and shortening the life of your loan by a number of years. Borrowers access their money through unlimited checks, an ATM/debit card, and even on-line bill pay. However, while the homeowner’s funds are not being used, said funds are

no longer sitting stagnant, they are working for the home owner. In essence your mortgage has become your checking account, creating a higher return on your funds, and, allowing you to always have your money working for you. “This is a huge win for homeowners,” said Chris George, President and CEO of CMG Mortgage. “In today’s uncertain economy, consumers are keenly aware that paying off debt is essential to securing a healthy financial future. Finally, here’s an opportunity to shift the focus from just minimizing payments to actually paying off – efficiently, quickly and with no change to lifestyle. And it’s not magic, it’s just math. You’re simply paying interest on a lower principal balance more of the time – thanks to your own money.” With the HOA loan being more of a financial tool than a mortgage, loan agents who offer the Home Ownership Accelerator have to be certified through CMG. More information can be found at www.homeownershipaccelerator.com or feel free to contact me directly -- after all, four years ago I was the very first loan agent to fund a Home Ownership Accelerator loan in the State of California.

Opinions flow on state water bills by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

Local reaction to the water legislation passed last week in Sacramento ranges from raising a glass in celebration to a lukewarm wait-and-see attitude to simply considering it all wet, depending on whom you talk to. The five water bills provide for a new Delta governing board that could approve a peripheral canal, require water conservation of 20 percent in urban areas, increase monitoring of groundwater, increase penalties for illegally taking water from the Delta and place an $11 billion bond for water projects on the ballot next November. Local Delta users and advocates have long been mistrustful of efforts in Sacramento to “fix” the Delta, fearing that it’s mostly a ruse to send more water south rather than keep it in the Delta to preserve the ecosystem. “Obviously, I am disappointed, as should everybody in the Delta,” said Roger Mammon, an Oakley resident and board member of the advocacy organization Restore the Delta. “They are passing all these things about Delta protection, but there’s no enforcement body behind it or penalties. There’s so much to it, it’s kind of hard to track it all. But if you really look at it, there’s a lot of pork in this thing. It looks like there’s a general obligation bond that will be paid for by the general public and the projects will benefit Southern California and the west side of the San Joaquin Valley, which has the most junior water rights in the state.”

“ The approval of this

Roger Mammon, Restore the Delta

Of the bond’s $11 billion, $3 billion is designated for water storage, $2.2 billion for Delta projects such as levee reinforcement and ecosystem restoration, $1.7 billion for watershed conservation throughout the state, $1.4 billion for water management and delivery projects, $1.2 for water recycling and conservation, $1 billion for groundwater cleanup and protection and $455 million for drought relief. But Mammon is skeptical that local Delta users will see much benefit. Asked whether they will get anything from the water package, he said, “Yeah, they get the shaft.” In contrast, the Contra Costa Water District (CCWD), which gets all of its water from the Delta, welcomes the legislation, believing it will improve water quality. “The approval of this water package represents a significant milestone for water policy in California,” said Jennifer Allen, CCWD senior public information specialist. “It doesn’t fix the Delta but provides the framework and financing needed to begin the critical restoration program needed to ensure Delta sustainability. It includes the establishment of state

policy that improves Delta water quality, making water supply more reliable, and provides flood control in the Delta. It will also set requirements for flows out of the Delta before more projects can be implemented.” That includes the proposed peripheral canal, which is planned to stretch 49 miles from just south of Sacramento to next to a new forebay near Clifton Court Forebay south of Byron, drawing up to 15,000 cubic feet of water per second from the Sacramento River, bypassing the rest of the Delta, before pumping it south. “This legislation in no way authorizes a peripheral canal,” said Allen. “In fact, it lays out a number of hurdles for any canal to move forward, that being the environmental protection specifically.” There’s a possibility that some of the bond money, if it passes next year, could go toward the expansion of CCWD’s Los Vaqueros Reservoir. The environmental impacts of that proposed expansion are currently being studied. City officials in East County are cautiously optimistic but also taking a wait-and-

see approach while they wade through the details in the hundreds of pages of water legislation. “The Assembly bills are quite voluminous,” said Paul Eldridge, Brentwood assistant director of public works. “In general there are some things that are really good about the bill and things that could have been better. First and foremost, there’s a comprehensive plan, which we haven’t had in a long time. It takes into account the Delta conveyance, some of the storage issues, the environment. Also it gave some of the groups who were keen on water usage some teeth for water conservation. I think everybody got some of what they wanted, but not everything they wanted.” Phil Harrington, Antioch’s director of capital improvements and water rights, who recently warned that Antioch is in danger of losing its century-old right to draw water from the San Joaquin River (possibly resulting in a multi-million dollar increase in water costs for residents and businesses), is cautiously optimistic that the legislation will preserve that right. “They have not said in any part of this bill that existing senior water rights will be impacted,” he said. “There are a lot of caveats to this whole process that could do it. (If) they start to fold in sea-level rise and climate change, that will typically incur processes that could impact your ability (to draw free water from the river). We continue to work and negotiate with the state.”

Citizens plan Next Steps In response to the General Plan work session held on Tuesday, Oakley Citizens for Responsible Growth is planning a meeting to discuss the public’s next step in the process. The Next Steps meeting will be held Thursday, Nov. 19 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Round Table Pizza, 2190 Main St. in Oakley. The group plans to discuss its option to challenge the city’s General Plan and prevent the city from becoming what it fears will be an over-

Power from page 1A hiring. Nosanchuck also stressed the need for local hiring for this project, which Lamberg said is a priority. In an interview with the Press last week, Lamberg said as part of conditions for certification in the final permit, Radback will first look to employ Oakley and far East County workers before expanding its search to the rest of the county and beyond. During the public comments portion of the hearing, several residents expressed concern about pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. The Energy Commission’s Staff Issues Identification Report also asked for more studies to be conducted regarding air quality and noise pollution. Environmental impacts found to be significant must be mitigated for the project to move forward, and representatives from Radback Energy said they would work with staff to address all concerns as needed. The informational hearing is just one

crowded, cookie-cutter suburb. Oakley Citizens for Responsible Growth is a grassroots group of Oakley citizens who express appreciation for Oakley’s many positive qualities but are concerned that the City Council has planned a future for Oakley that will degrade and destroy many of its qualities. For more information, call 925-3084354, e-mail citizen@ouroakley.org, or visit www.ouroakley.org.

step in a 16-month process in which the commission will conduct an analysis to determine whether or not the proposed project is viable. The commission is expected to make its decision by March, 2011. If approved, Radback anticipates beginning construction in May, 2011, and completing the project by the end of 2013, at which time PG&E will take over operation of the plant. The proposed Oakley Generating Station is designed to be a 620-megawatt, stateof-the-art natural-gas-fired, combined-cycle generating facility supplying power to 600,000 households. The plant will also use General Electric’s latest technology, the 7FA Fleet, which employs faster starts, greater turndown, lower emissions and hirer efficiency. The Oakley Generating Station would be the first in the world to use this new technology. For more information about the project, visit www.radback.com/CCGSLLC.html.

General Plan from page 1A finance all of the improvements that help make the community better – or else we’ll need to go back to the existing residents and ask them for more taxes.” All cities are required to create a General Plan, which designates intended land uses within the city. Following Oakley’s incorporation in 1999, the city inherited the county General Plan while council members and city staff, with input from the public, crafted a new city plan, which was adopted in 2002. The existing General Plan will serve as a road map through 2020, at which time the population is projected to reach 70,000. The General Plan resurfaced as a discussion item in recent months as the council voted to rezone land to match the General Plan. Dozens of residents have spoken out against the rezoning of land from agricultural use to single-family housing in the proposed Rosewood and Cedarwood projects, and the council concedes it should have rezoned all the land back in 2002 to avoid confusion. The council is obligated to rezone the land to match the guidelines outlined in the General Plan, so the rezoning was a necessary formality to ensure compliance. In hindsight, Montgomery said the city should have handled all the rezoning earlier and that it was a mistake to put it off. While certain plots of land have been rezoned, the housing density of the proposed lots is still negotiable until the council adopts a tentative map. While all in attendance, including the council, agreed that the lowest density is ideal, approval of maximum density for housing project helps create more

homes, which translates to more impact fees for the city to use to fund service projects, such as improving roads and creating sidewalks, that will benefit the entire city. “The issue is: we want to do what the citizens want,” Montgomery said. “But what citizens? If we’ve got 50 of you in the room that say ‘I don’t want that there,’ these five people (the council) have to make a decision not just because of what the 50 people want, but for the 35,000 people (living in Oakley). … You can’t forget that there are all these other people out there that matter.” Some residents in the audience called for a new General Plan, but since the current plan is still in its infancy, the council discouraged the long, costly process to redo it. Rather than rewrite the plan, staff suggested reviewing the document and amending areas that could be improved – working with the existing document rather than starting over. Vice Mayor Pat Anderson assured the public that the council and city staff will take all comments and feedback into account and urged the public to keep the dialogue going. Montgomery seconded that: “Please call. Please e-mail. I actually think one of the worst opportunities for you to give the City Council input is at the City Council meeting. To sit down one-on-one and look them in the eye and say ‘This is what I feel’ is far more effective than coming in front of a large group, so please get in touch with them.” Contact information for all City Council members is listed on the city Web site, www.oakleyinfo.com.

Effort to recall councilmen will continue by Kathy Fredenberg Brentwood resident Let me first say that we are not opposed to the officials’ decision to build a civic center, just its location of choice. The majority of us were even in favor when we first heard of the plans. However, that was when the plan was to build behind the current City Hall. We do understand the growth of our small community (all too well) and realize that the increase in employees UEST at City Hall is a given. What COMMENT we are concerned and opposed to is the use of land that was donated to the inhabitants of Brentwood to be used specifically as a “public park perpetually and forever.” Our beautiful and historic City Park (all original 2.93 acres of it) should remain a park. We do take offense to you calling our efforts “misguided.” It is our democratic right to question what our officials do and how they go about doing it. We have tried to get answers to our questions for over a year now from our city officials about how they were able to legally rezone the park, to no avail. We have spoken out at several city council meetings and were just ignored. We have requested copies of all documents pertaining to this issue with no document appearing proving they have a legal right to build upon the park. And it is our constitutional right to question what appear to be ethical violations of the law and trampling

G

on the rights of us citizens that want answers and the entire park to remain a park. If this has been legally taken care of and in the proper way, we would love to see the proof; otherwise, there just may be some malfeasance (your word) being done by these two council members and the mayor. Yes, recalling a government official is a very serious undertaking and believe me, we wish we didn’t have to proceed. However, when these same officials refuse to explain, talk to us and/or provide proof that what they are doing is legal – what else can we do? For your information, a third Notice of Intent will be issued (if at first you don’t succeed in the red-tape of the legal system – try, try again). Unfortunately, on the second notice, some of the addresses had changed due the housing situation and registration update cards had not been sent in. Our City Council needs to be held accountable for its actions. And its lack of communication proves that it does not care what any of us think or want for our community. Therefore it is its lack of cooperation and continuous story changing (and downright lies) that forces us to continue … I find it unusual that the editorial in the Oct. 30 Brentwood Press was unsigned. Does this mean that this editorial is the stance the Brentwood Press is taking? If it is, I find that very sad, but it also explains why the Press refused to print my last two letters to the editor. Isn’t a newspaper supposed to remain unbiased? I guess the author(s) wanted to remain anonymous. Why is that?

TO THE

six years ago, you gave selflessly of yourself and always found ways to be there for and appreciate others. Whether it was volunteering in the classroom, working with SEED, surprising staff with secret Santa gifts, setting up appreciation days or honoring our valued employees, you always made sure people were treated with honor and respect. The district grew and improved under your guidance and dealt with adversity in a positive manner. You brought honor and integrity to the position of trustee in the BUSD, and the legacy built over those years will be felt for generations of students in the future. I know you feel the district is headed in a great direction, and you want to see it through to the amazing outcomes we have ahead. But again, you made the selfless act of stepping down from the position, because you didn’t feel you could give the time necessary to do the job correctly. Others would have stayed, out of ego, instead of doing what is best for the kids and the district. Maybe when things settle down and your full commitment to the position of trustee can return, you will have the opportunity to finish the job. But for now, thank you for all you have done, and know that the many

And yes, democracy is what our country runs on – but it just takes a little longer to achieve results for those of us who do not have the funds for attorney fees. It was hilarious to read the editorial where it states that City Park will be bigger. Don’t you remember that the city rezoned the park to a new “downtown (mixeduse) district”? There is no such thing as our city park anymore. The city can now cement over whatever it wants (even the remaining grass area). I would also like to see the proof that it will be bigger (without counting in a parking lot); the recent plans do not prove it. During a recent council meeting, Councilman Stonebarger asked if the grass ratio would be the same after City Hall was built. He was told yes, it would even be a little larger and that if it weren’t, then construction would stop and plans would be redone so that it would be. Well, the most recent plans I have prove that the park will be smaller. But wait – construction is still going on? Please also remember per your article that Erick Stonebarger did get more votes than Brockman. End of story – no other votes matter. I know numbers can say anything the author intends them to. Councilman Stonebarger and Councilman Richey have continuously voted against the Civic Center project, selling bonds, re-phasing, library re-location/renovations and a few other areas in the past year. This project has never been a unanimous decision within our city council – nor is it within our community. It is time those three (Taylor, Becnel and Brockman) realize they can’t keep sweeping us under the carpet.

City hall should take to the Streets Editor: Two months ago I expressed a concern over losing our park to the multi-million dollar city hall project. I was reassured by a park employee, who said that the green parts of the park would remain. Last week I talked to a man who was working on the project. He said that the building would extend from Maple Street to the far side of the old library – taking over half the park. I have a better idea. Put the city hall out at the Streets of Brentwood. I understand there are empty stores available. To view the rape of the park, visit the real streets of Brentwood. Bring Kleenex – it’s enough to make you weep. Mr. Stonebarger and Mr. Richey, thank you for voting against the project. You have my vote in the next election. Carole Main Brentwood

Foregone conclusion Editor: I’ve read comments about the 2Gates Project, but find no mention of a glaring red flag that bothers me. If this project is indeed about saving the Delta smelt, why is the Southern California Metropolitan Water District one of the sponsors? We all know its main goal is to divert as much Northern California water to Southern California as possible. I’m frankly surprised that it would even have its name associated with this project. My sad conclusion is that it’s already a done deal, so they don’t care. Bill Kogura Discovery Bay

All proceeds will enable the team, the majority of which have been together for three years, the opportunity to represent Brentwood at the prestigious Cooperstown All-Star Village Youth Baseball Classic and visit baseball’s Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. in the summer of 2011. With the generosity and support of many businesses, the team raised $3,700. The boys were the food servers for the evening as they hustled out bowls of salad, baskets of rolls and platters of homemade Italian pasta. The cook was the Italian grandpa of one of the players. Bart Schneider was the master of ceremonies and auctioneer for our live auction items, which included tickets to Dr. Phil/The Doctors, Disneyland, Half Moon Bay Golf and El Dorado Hotel accommodations, to name just a few. There was a Pick-your-Prize raffle and a sea of silent auction prizes for everyone to enjoy.

Heritage nets key volleyball victory by Dave Roberts Staff Writer

You just knew the girls volleyball season finale last week between Liberty and Heritage would go down to the wire. Each team came into the game with a 10-4 record. Liberty had won its first encounter in three games and Heritage took its second match in four games. The Nov. 5 showdown, in a nearly full Liberty gym, featured a deafening playoff atmosphere as the crosstown rivals fought for second place in the Bay Valley Athletic League (undefeated Deer Valley had sewn up first). And sure enough, the well-played, hardfought contest – a “battle royale,” as Heritage Coach Janet Hannigan called it – went a full five games, the Patriots edging out the Lions 15-13 in the final game. Liberty took the first game 25-20; Heritage prevailed in the next two 25-19 and 25-22, and the fourth game went into extra points before Liberty prevailed 28-26. The key to victory for Heritage was finding ways to work around Liberty’s Corinne Costa, who at 6-foot-4 dominates the court on offense (she notched 31 kills) and on defense (five blocks). “Today we were able to do some things a little differently,” said Hannigan. “We had to adjust to match Corinne – she’s such a huge threat – we were able to do that. We made a couple of adjustments that really helped us out today. You’re trying to hit around a wall,

So when she’s not there, wherever she’s not, we are trying to put the ball (and) adjusting who is playing middle when she’s in the front row and trying to score a lot of points when she’s not in the game. She’s a very physical factor.” Just how much of a factor Costa represents was demonstrated in the first game, in which her kills and blocks helped put the Lions up 12-3. But when she came out of the game for a rest, Heritage climbed back to

within four points, down 15-19. Then Costa returned to the game, leading to kill, kill, kill. Before you knew it the game was over and Liberty was victorious. If Costa were superhuman and able to play every minute of every game, the outcome of the match would likely have been different. Liberty Coach Linda Ghilarducci was gracious in defeat: “Everybody played their heart out. It was a great match. Nothing to be ashamed of. That’s the way it goes. It’s

been great. We can’t ask for better. It’s great volleyball. The house is packed. This is great volleyball.” While Liberty, naturally, is a Costaoriented team, Heritage takes a more democratic approach. Hannigan praised her whole team but singled out four players for helping make the victory possible: Chelsey Hancock, a sophomore running the team see Volleyball page 23A

Patriots’ experience overwhelms Falcons by Kenny Lee Correspondent

It was Senior Night at Heritage High Friday night, and Patriots Stadium was the scene of senior dominance as the Heritage football team routed the Freedom Falcons 32-6. The Patriots field more than twice as many 2010 graduates as Freedom’s 11 seniors, and the difference in experience was abundantly evident throughout the contest. The offensive star for Heritage was running back Kruger Story Jr., who gained 213 rushing yards and scored four times. The offensive line, led by seniors Jesus Ochoa, Seth Magalei and Carrington Reyes, opened gaping holes throughout the contest en route to 344 total yards of offense, 280 on the ground. The first Patriot possession seemed nearly uncontested, as the team drove 80 yards in four plays and slightly more than a minute. Quarterback Brent Eikanas completed a pass to wide receiver Devin Hardy for 16 yards to start the march, followed by three straight runs by Story Jr., the last of which went for 45 yards to paydirt. Freedom’s defense stiffened on the Pa-

triots’ next possession, forcing a three-andout, but Freedom’s offense also couldn’t get a first down. A short punt put the ball on the Freedom 40 yard line. Eikanas hit Davonte Lewis for 16 yards and connected again for a 22-yard TD. The Falcon highlight came on the ensuing kickoff. Running back D’Amora Cooper took the kick at his 21 and bolted directly down the middle of the field virtually untouched for a 79-yard touchdown. Suddenly Freedom had life in a 13-6 ballgame in the first quarter. Heritage started its next drive from its own 22, and worked the ball downfield for Story Jr.’s second TD of the night, this one from six yards out, giving the Patriots a 19-6 lead with 7:18 to go in the second quarter. Determined not to fold under pressure, Freedom took its next possession at its 20. Cooper took a pitch to the right side and sprinted 69 yards to the Patriot 11. But the Falcons’ next three plays resulted in a loss of 16 yards. A field goal attempt was blocked, and Lewis returned the ball to the Falcons 18 – a play that seemed to sap the life from the Freedom sideline. Five plays later, Story Jr. scored from one yard out to

give the Patriots a 25-6 lead. After stirring halftime performances by the cheerleaders of both schools, Falcon wide receiver Kenneth Walker took the second half kickoff 60 yards to the Patriot 39, and the Freedom bench suddenly came to life. It was short-lived, however, as the team fumbled the ball after three plays. Story Jr. recovered for Heritage at the Freedom 24, but the Patriots stalled and were forced to punt.

Freedom then started to move the ball with authority, thanks to the tough running of Cooper and quarterback Stephen Rodriguez. The Falcons eventually got to first-and-goal at the Heritage five. But the birds couldn’t punch it in. On fourth-andgoal at the one, Cooper lined up in shotgun “wildcat” formation, but a bad snap forced him to retreat to recover the ball, forcing a see Patriots page 23A

Big-play Pirates sink Lions in blowout by Dave Roberts Staff Writer There was an air of inevitability about the Liberty football team’s blowout loss to Pittsburg Friday night, and the game pretty much lived up to expectations. Pittsburg is a much stronger team than its 4-4 overall record coming into the game suggests. They had whupped Freedom 42-21 the week before, threw a scare into undefeated Deer Valley before falling 33-35 the week before that and dominated Heritage 46-20 in the first week of league play. Meanwhile Liberty was being collectively outscored 157-9 by Antioch, Heritage and Deer Valley. So you didn’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure it was probably going to be another long night for Lions fans at Ohmstede field. The only question was whether Liberty would be able to put up much of a fight for a while, as Freedom had done the prior week when it led Pittsburg by a touchdown after one quarter and tied the Pirates at the half. Unfortunately, it was never close in Friday’s 52-7 blowout, although the Lions did have several scoring opportunities that could have made the game more interesting – had they capitalized. There are 52-7 blowouts that feel like they easily could have been 104-7 blowouts; and there are 52-7 blowouts that feel like they could have been 52-28 blowouts. This one felt like the latter, although the what-might-havebeens were cold comfort on a cold night for Lions fans.

“I thought we hung with Pittsburg pretty well,” said Liberty Coach Nate Smith. “52-7 – it didn’t feel like that except for the big plays they had on offense. They ripped off long runs on us. They had a couple of big pass plays. I thought we should have had 28 points tonight. We fumbled the ball once inside the red zone. Twice we put the ball in the end zone and penalties bring it back out and we don’t score. We had another long run called back for a penalty. If we just limited the big plays (by Pittsburg), we are right in the game. “I know it’s a 52-7 game, but really it was three unfinished drives and us missing a couple of tackles to enable big plays. They didn’t necessarily drive the field on us. It was big plays (by Pittsburg). Offensively, I thought we played our best game in over a month. I thought we moved the ball well all night long.

We just couldn’t finish drives. I’m proud of the effort, but we need to stay together better as a team. In the second half when they started to pull away, we kind of fractured a little bit. And I thought that’s what really cost our defense on some plays.” Pittsburg’s game plan was simple: its line would smash open holes for its fleet of fleet running backs to run through for touchdowns. Alex Foster scored the first Pirate touchdown on a 36-yard run. Breon Butler scored twice – once on a 43-yard run and another nearly as long to start the second half. Arthur Brown scored on an 80-yard kickoff return. Billy Wells ran it in from 11 yards for the final score. Quarterback Julius Mozee also threw two TD passes to Robert Jiles. Pittsburg was ahead 28-0 when Liberty finally got on the board for its sole game high-

light just before the first half ended. With a little more than a minute left, the Lions drove quickly from their own 26 with fine passing by quarterback Devyn Parsons. He hit Anthony Garcia once and Garrett Slocum thrice, the last one caught on the 10 and run into the end zone. But the other scoring opportunities were thwarted by penalties and turnovers. Liberty, which is 3-5-1 overall and 0-4 in league play, has an opportunity to finish the season on a positive note in Saturday’s Bell Game against Freedom, which starts at 1 p.m. at Freedom. The Falcons have played better this season than their 0-9 record indicates, and Smith is expecting a tough battle. “Freedom’s been getting better and better,” he said. “This week they kind of took it on the chin from Heritage. But prior to this they were getting better and better every week. So, right now if anybody is looking at it, they would probably have to say that Freedom’s been playing better than us recently. But I thought, despite the score, we played much better tonight. So I think it will be a close game. “To me it’s very reminiscent of the year 2000 when both teams came in without a win in league play. And it was a 27-21 game that wasn’t decided until the last seconds. It was a very exciting, thrilling game. And I think we can expect some of the same this coming week.” Pittsburg, which is 5-4 overall and 3-1 in league play, hosts Antioch Saturday afternoon in the Big Little Game.

But the team as a whole allowed them to do those things,” said Hannigan. “The girls deserve this win. They fight so hard every game, practicing, working hard, building a great team. It was a good game – win or lose, I’d have been happy. “But I’m very pleased with my team. They worked so hard every day. This is our highest finish ever in league. Deer Valley

Patriots from page 19A turnover on downs. Heritage took advantage of the defensive effort and scored four plays later, this time on a spectacular 78-yard TD jaunt by Story Jr., who again found a huge hole on the left side of the defense and dashed down the sideline. A downfield block by senior Robert Uwaichie cleared the last obstacle.

and Liberty are always tough battles. So I’m glad it went five just because we are equally matched. When Corinne’s in, it becomes an equally matched game.” The victory upped Heritage’s record to 23-11 overall and 11-4 in league play. Liberty ended the regular season 21-12 overall and 10-5 in league action. Both teams earned spots in the North Coast Section playoffs. Heritage played at home Wednesday against 18-13 Castro Valley; Liberty was on the road against 19-9 Irvington and 22-11 Deer Valley hosted 12-8 San Leandro. The results of those games were not available at press time. The winners move on to the second round Saturday at 7 p.m. Prior to the game, the senior cheerleaders and players were escorted to midfield by family members, and a few tears were shed for what might be the last time they play or cheer on this field. Many were appreciative of Cathy Alers, who has served as the Heritage “Team Mom” for many years in a variety of sports, organizing countless team dinners, coordinating corsages for the cheerleaders and helping with the early-season road trip to San Diego.

Broken teeth – not what they’re cracked up to be

GO

While tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the human body, undue stress on your teeth – due to chewing hard foods such as a popcorn kernel or an ice cube, biting on a hard object such as a pen or pipe, and clenching or grinding your teeth – can cause enamel to crack. Cracked Tooth Syndrome is common in teeth with large fillings and is seen most often in the back teeth. If the crack goes untreated, it can deepen or expand like a crack in a glass window, causing part of the tooth to break off. If this occurs, the tooth might have to be extracted or might need root canal treatment in an attempt to save it. Some of the symptoms of this occurrence are pain in chewing, unsolicited pain, pain from cold air, no X-ray evidence of the problem and no dental decay present. Often it is difficult for the patient to determine which tooth is causing the pain. However, the absence of pain does not rule out the presence of a crack.

To determine if a tooth has developed a crack that is not visible to the naked eye, the dentist will take a thorough dental history, including history of trauma to your teeth and history of any bite adjustments performed. The teeth in the problem area will be examined with a dental explorer. Hot and cold sensitivity will be tested. If a severe pain is elicited with temperature, and the pain rapidly subsides with removal of the stimulus, it usually indicates a fracture. Can cracks be treated so that the tooth can be saved? Yes. Early diagnosis leads to a better chance of success. The best solution is to have a full crown placed over the tooth to strengthen and hold the tooth together. In about 10 percent of cracked teeth, the nerve dies and root canal will be required. For questions, or to set up an appointment for any of these symptoms, contact Dr. Dikran Dragopian in Brentwood at 925-513-0100. – Courtesy of DentalSenders.com

Workout a top priority by Christian Aguirre Certified Personal Trainer The number-one reason why people don’t exercise is that they don’t have time. At least that’s what they tell themselves. With the holiday season fast approaching, your busy schedule is sure to get even busier. Parties, shopping, decorating, cooking and family gatherings – it’s no wonder exercise quickly takes a backseat to holiday activities. You don’t need to succumb to weight gain this holiday season. Escape the timecrunch excuse with these easy steps: Schedule Your Workouts If you treated exercise time with the importance of a work meeting, you’d never skip a workout and you’d be in amazing shape. Pull out your calendar and a pen. Identify three 40-minute time slots and mark them on your calendar. That is when you’ll exercise. If the thought of exercise is floating around in your head but you haven’t anchored it down to a specific time, it will disappear. Get the Most from Each Minute The days of endless, mind-numbing cardio are over. A great workout can take place in under an hour, when done correctly. The idea is to burn more calories each minute. This is done through short, intense bursts of exercise. Use the following three tips to bring your routine up to the next level: 1. Be Unstable: Use your entire body, and target your core, by performing exercises that

engage stabilizing muscles. To do this use an exercise ball, a balance board, a balance disk, or simply stand on one leg. 2. Add Resistance: The more resistance you incorporate into your routine translates into higher intensity and more calories burned. Some ideas for adding resistance include: carrying dumbbells while doing lunges, wearing a weighted vest while walking or jogging, or putting a weight between your feet while doing leg raises. 3. Use Intervals: Interval training is an amazing tool for creating short yet effective workouts. Interval training is simply alternating between different short bursts of activity. Here’s an example: • Lunge while curling dumbbells, 15-20 repetitions. • 30 seconds of intense cardio: sprint, jump rope or do jumping jacks. • Squat while pressing dumbbells overhead, 15-20 repetitions. • 30 seconds of intense cardio: sprint, jump rope, or do jumping jacks. • Crunches on an exercise ball, 15-20 repetitions. • 30 seconds of intense cardio: sprint, jump rope, or do jumping jacks. • Leg raises off the end of an exercise bench, 15-20 repetitions. Call me at 510-919-6806 or e-mail alohafitness@hotmail.com to get started on the program that will transform your life. And visit www.alohahealthandfitness. com for more information.
