Barr chosen as vice mayor Assaulted

officer recovering

by Rick Lemyre Staff Writer After leading the field of candidates during the November election, newly sworn-in City Councilman Steve Barr was selected by his colleagues to serve as vice mayor for the next two years. Barr and Joel Bryant took their seats at the Brentwood council dais Tuesday and got right down to business. In a series of 5-0 votes, the council purchased development rights to a trio of properties, spending a total of $1.8 million to secure development rights on three parcels of land. Part of the city’s Ag Preservation plan, the acquisition of the rights on 161 acres of prime, Class A farmland just outside the city’s borders means those parcels will continue to be farmed in perpetuity. Prior to the new councilmen taking their seats, outgoing councilmen Chris Becnel and Brandon Richey were thanked for their service, and both used the opportunity to speak their minds. Becnel, reading from prepared remarks, reminded the community and the new council that “There are those who oppose projects for any number of reasons – the economy is too weak, it is too expensive, it is not the right time, things are great the way they are – whatever the reason, the result is the same: inaction. Brentwood needs to be very

A Brentwood police officer is recovering after being knocked unconscious during a struggle with an allegedly drunk driver early Sunday. According to police, 21-year-old Brentwood resident Jason Kruenegal was stopped about 2 a.m. in a parking lot on Walnut Boulevard near Oak Street. As he was questioned about whether he had been drinking, Kruenegal allegedly ran away. Police chased him, catching up with him in a nearby alley, where a struggle ensued. Lt. Tom Hansen said an officer involved in the struggle sustained a head injury and was knocked unconscious. When the officer did not respond to his radio, a request for assistance from neighboring agencies was broadcast. Officers from Antioch, Pittsburg, Oakley, Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office, Rio Vista and California Highway Patrol responded to the area. After an extensive search, Kruenegal was taken into custody. A passenger who was in the car when the stop occurred was not arrested. Hansen said initial reports that the officer had been shot were inaccurate, and that no shots had been fired during the incident. The officer was treated and released from the hospital and is expected to fully recover. Kruenegal, who was jailed in lieu of $155,000 bail, is facing charges of assault on a peace officer, DUI and possible possession of steroids.

LAFCO seats up for grabs by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

For the first time in nearly five years, two openings on the seven-member Contra Costa Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) are up for grabs, and commission members are expected to vote on the available seats within the next few weeks. “This is a little unusual,” said Lou Ann Texeira, LAFCO executive officer. “Certainly it’s the first time this has happened since I’ve been with LAFCO, but it’ll work out. We’ll get it done.” LAFCO is a powerful county commission that oversees land boundaries and annexation issues. There are 58 such boards throughout California. The two positions – the mayors seat, held by Concord Councilwoman Helen Allen, and the special districts position held by Discovery Bay Community Services District (CSD) Director David Piepho – became available last month following Allen’s retirement from the Concord Council and Piepho’s resignation from the CSD board and subsequent unsuccessful bid for a seat on the Byron-Brentwood-Knightsen Union Cemetery Board. In order to retain a position on LAFCO, commissioners must sit on the board of one of the agencies they represent. In the case of Allen, a call for nominations to fill her spot on LAFCO went

out a few weeks ago and the nomination deadline was set for Dec. 22. According to Texeira, when the City Selection Committee meets at its regular Jan. 6 meeting, a new commissioner to fill Allen’s position will be appointed. “Because Helen (Allen) didn’t run for a seat on the Concord City Council again, her seat on LAFCO became available,” said Texeira. “There are 19 cities countywide, so there is the potential for that many nominations, although typically we receive maybe three or four. We’ll see what happens.” Selection committees comprising representatives from each of the commissions appoint LAFCO seats. For example, a group made up of representatives from each of the county’s 19 city councils votes on the mayors seat. Although no official word has been issued on who is running for the open mayors seat, Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor has said he might throw his hat into

the ring, and according to Texeira, it’s also possible that mayors seat alternate – Lafayette City Councilman Don Tatzin – might apply. Applicants for the mayors seat needn’t be mayors, but must at least be members of a city council. Nominations for the special districts seat are open until Jan. 5, and an appointment is expected at the regular meeting of the Independent Special District Selection Committee on Jan. 24. There are 44 special districts countywide and the same number of potential applicants, but so far, just one individual, George Schmidt – the sitting alternate – plans to apply for the post. “I am definitely interested in running,” said Schmidt, who has been on the board of directors of the West County Wastewater District since 1992. “I’ve been an alternate for years and I would like to make a run for it. Maybe it’s my time.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Two local school districts that came under fire from the county regarding their budgets have received an OK for this fiscal year, but more cuts could be on the horizon. Members of the Antioch and Byron unified school districts recently breathed a sigh of relief as the Contra Costa County Office of Education gave each a positive certification on the first budget report of the school year. In late November, the county office issued warnings to five districts – Antioch, Byron, John Swett, Mt. Diablo and West Contra Costa County. Antioch superintendent Donald Gill said the warning didn’t mean a potential takeover from the state, but closer scrutiny from the county. Gill was happy to get that positive certification from the county, noting that now the district can move forward. “If we can put our budgetary issues to rest, our goal is the social and academic development of our kids,” he said. The district did receive some federal money, but in order to make ends meet this fiscal year for Antioch, the 18,107student district made some tough decisions. Gill said the district nixed its travel

budget, except for absolutely essential trips. Antioch also closed many portable buildings, moving those students back inside the permanent structure. The district is looking into renting out the portables to provide the district with more cash. Antioch ended class size reduction in kindergarten through third grade, a move Gill said he did not want to make. Despite the cuts, the district must still find a way to eliminate about $4 million from each of the next two fiscal years. “Having a positive budget three years out is absolutely critical to our district,” Gill said. “Having a positive multi-year projection gives our community confidence that the fiscal resources that are under the control of the district are in good hands and we’re solvent.” Byron, a 1,670-student school district with a preschool, two elementary schools and a middle school, used federal money to stop deficit spending and furloughs this year. According to Superintendent Ken Jacopetti, the district received a one-time deal that can’t be counted on again next year. “Early on, basically we were into a mode of deficit spending,” Jacopetti said. “It’s been a struggle for us over the last couple of years.” see Budgets page 19A

Freedom High to get new home turf

After seven years of wear and tear, Freedom High School’s football/soccer field is set to get a facelift. The Liberty Union High School District installed Freedom’s synthetic turf field in 2003 for $700,000, according to Wayne Reeves, the district’s Director of Project Development. That field came with an eight-year warranty. Since the current field is still under warranty, the District will pay a deeply discounted price for the new field. The district is purchasing the new synthetic field, which Reeves said will be state-of-the-art, for about $250,000. Reeves noted that this money is not coming out of the district’s general fund, but from cash specifically earmarked for construction. The new field will carry another eight-year warranty. “It’s not money that would be better used in classrooms or teachers’ salaries,” he said. “This money has to be used for construction and development.” Rubber chunks from the current field’s foun-

dation have been coming lose, sending them flying as players dig in their cleats. Freedom Athletic Director Steve Amaro said some tests were done over the summer showing that the field is wearing out faster than it should. “Safety’s key and this thing has done its time,” said Freedom head varsity football coach Kevin Hartwig. “I’m tremendously excited about it,” Amaro said. “It’s going to be a top-of-the-line field. We’re hoping it will last much longer than the one we have currently.” In addition to enhanced durability, the new field will boast some special artwork. One end zone will be inscribed with “Freedom”; the other with “Falcons” – both in the school’s trademark blue. Amaro said a Falcon logo might be placed at midfield. The current field, scheduled for removal beginning this week, displayed no special logos or coloration. Reeves said the work should take about three to four weeks to complete. In the meantime, the Freedom soccer teams will play home games at Heritage and Liberty high schools. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Antioch braces for next round of cuts by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

A handful of Antioch employees could receive layoff notices next week, and more could join them in the near future. After authorizing City Manager Jim Jakel to make $500,000 in cuts to this fiscal year’s personnel budget at the Nov. 30 City Council meeting, council members voted unanimously Tuesday night to direct Jakel to make another $737,000 in staffing cuts to help keep the city afloat. Antioch operates on a general fund budget of roughly $36 million. The cuts were necessary, according to Councilmember Brian Kalinowski, because unions have not agreed to continue concessions in place this calendar year. Starting Jan. 1, Antioch is contractually obligated to reinstate the concessions, such as deferred cost of living increases and salary cuts. “If the concessions are not continued,” said Finance Director Dawn Merchant, “the city could potentially run out of money if we don’t find other ways to cut costs or generate revenue.” Jakel said he would determine the first round of cuts soon, prompting layoff notices to be issued early next week. Somewhere between five and eight employees will be laid off, and the cuts spread among the city’s departments. Council members emphasized their reluctance to lay people off, but said painful decisions must be made in order to avoid bankruptcy. “We can’t continue to spend what we don’t have,” council member Wade Harper said. “We have to remain fiscally solvent.” Also present at the meeting were several Antioch police officers, who cited the recent array of violent crimes in Antioch to

stress the importance of funding the police force. Officer Scott Gillespie and his wife appeared before the council in an effort to humanize the process of slashing numbers from the budget. Gillespie said that he was one of the most recently hired officers, so he feared he’d be the first to go. “I chose Antioch over other offers I had in law enforcement because it sounded like a good place to work where I’d get a lot of experience and a place where I’d have a lot of security,” Gillespie said. “My first phase of FTO, I was told I might not have a job at the end of the year. I’ve been told that every day I’ve worked here since. I’ve never had security in this city.” Sgt. Tom Fuhrmann, president of the Antioch Police Officers Association, spoke before the vote on behalf of his officers, but declined to comment after the meeting on the decision to make more cuts. Fuhrmann said he planned to meet with officers on Wednesday to figure out their next move. Earlier in the five-hour council meeting, city leaders again had dollars and cents in mind when the subject of new digital radios for police officers and firefighters arose. The new radios, said Lt. Scott Willerford, would make it easier for Antioch to join a countywide effort to make quick connections between cities in the event of an emergency. The radios would cost Antioch $1 million up front, plus $300,000 per year. While Willerford said the current radios work fine, they make it difficult to coordinate with other agencies in the event, for example, of a high-speed pursuit that extends beyond city limits. City council members were not able to reach a decision, asking that the issue be reconsidered at the next meeting on Jan. 11. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Bah humbug to political correctness by Walter Ruehlig Antioch Has political correctness run amok? Consider the secular battle cry over Yuletide expressions: “Christmas tree” or “holiday tree”; robust “merry Christmas” or neutered “happy holidays”? Folks are cussing, not kissing, under the mistletoe over nomenclature, caught in a winUEST try cultural war swirling around COMMENT innocent holiday semantics. Call this a tyranny of the minority as, tellingly, 84 percent of Americans are Christian and 96 percent celebrate Christmas. Mr. Retailer, freely call your trees whatever. That’s your merchandising right. It’s also my consumer right to take my business to a vendor unembarrassed by the word Christmas. Pointedly,

what elitist would likely drag a pine to the top of their ivory tower? Heaven forbid, the act might interrupt their incessant whining and cause a dreaded momentary spell of lightheartedness. As for calling out happy holidays, Hannukah, Kwanza or Ramadan, be my guest; indulge me my “merry Christmas!” I’m also continuing with “happy New Year.” Following the Roman tradition isn’t affronting the Babylonian, Baha’i, Balinese, Chinese, Coptic, Islamic, Mayan, Persian or, for that matter, Sports Illustrated calendar. Graciously, then, spare the sanctimonious indignation. My cultural links, family roots and even plain common sense scream bah humbug! to toasting an emotionally productive, disease free, economically advantageous, environmentally conscious, gender, race, religion and ethnicity neutral passing of the winter solstice. Amidst shrill secularism, we forget Harry Truman’s

words to Pope Pius XII in 1947: “this is a Christian nation.” America was, in truth, founded on Biblical principles. The genesis of the Bill of Rights is found in the teachings inspired by Exodus, Saint Matthew and Saint Paul. The Ten Commandments still rest on the wall behind the sitting Supreme Court justices. Our coins still display the motto “In God we trust.” The president still swears his oath of office on a Bible. Congress is still convened with prayer. Though nobody is imposing a public religion, that doesn’t exclude faith from our resplendent national tapestry. Friends, appropriate parting sentiments from Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol”: “I don’t know what to do!” cried Scrooge, laughing and crying in the same breath. “I am as light as a feather. I am happy as an angel. I am as merry as a schoolboy. A merry Christmas to every-body! A happy New Year to all the world.”

Boat parade lights up Discovery Bay Town turns out for annual celebration

Cathy and Craig Chutka, first-place winners in the small boat category, wished residents a happy holiday with their Santa sleigh and reindeerinspired decorations.

Local residents and out-oftowners brought their enthusiasm – and their boats – to Discovery Bay’s waterside celebration last weekend. The annual event, hosted by the Discovery Bay Yacht Club, brought out the spirit of the season in participants and spectators alike. Here are some of this year’s popular entries.

Photos by Stacey Chance

A giant snowglobe, colorful nutcrackers and plenty of holiday lights made this entry a fan favorite as it made its way through the town’s backyard bays and waterways.

When you’ve got Santa on your side, you don’t need anything else, as evidenced by this simple yet spirited parade entry.

Kevin Hinman’s 70-foot houseboat was aglow with hundreds of holiday lights. Hinman’s merry entry took first place in the non-member category.

Byron also requested a helper from the state to make sure the district is financially sound. However, like Gill, Jacopetti faces tough choices down the road. The Byron superintendent said that next fiscal year, the district projects to spend $545,000 more than it has. The year after that, By-

Dud did some figuring down at the Mule Barn the other day. Dud always was handy with figures. “As I see it, he has one fireplace in that whole house,” Dud says, “and he doesn’t need it to heat the house. They had a propane furnace put in. So, if he burns that fireplace continuously every weekend during winter, figuring winter lasts until about April, give or take, I figure it’ll take him 93 years to run out of fence.” Those of us who cut and haul our own wood, and use it to heat the house, at first said nasty things about the rich guy. This fence was really gilding the lily, of course. But then we started taking friends from out of town to see it. “You think you’ve seen a fence?” we’d say. “I’ll show you one for the books.” Brought to you by www.boogiebeads. com.

We watched the fence growing, growing even as the snow fell, and there was bile and envy oozing from several pores in town. This was the rich guy’s fence. The rich guy and his wife moved to our quiet little town to HOME spend weekends. OUNTRY Their real home is two hours away in the city. He owns a factory or store or something down there. But here they bought that five acres on the edge of town and had SLIM people from the RANDLES city come up and build their vacation home. They paid the builders to stay down at the Empress Motel while they worked, too. Well, the house was finished toward the end of summer, and they’ve been up here several times since. Seem like nice enough folks. But the fence … The rich guy had no fence around the five acres, you see, and he had no firewood.

Gold Star license plates hit the road by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer It was years in the making and took mountains of work, but when Kevin Graves learned that the first of the Gold Star license plates were finally ready to roll, he had just one thing to say – Hooyah. “It’s a fantastic accomplishment, a tremendous team effort and it feels great to have finally gotten it done,” said Graves, a Discovery Bay resident whose son Joey was killed in Iraq in 2007. “It just feels really great.” The idea for the California plates was developed by Graves and Modesto resident Mike Anderson –who also lost a son in Iraq – as a way to honor other Gold Star families whose loved ones had made the ultimate sacrifice. Pennsylvania, New York, Texas and Illinois are among the states that offer Gold Star family plates. And last week, California was added to the list, as the first of the 7,500 license plates was presented to Graves and Anderson at a ceremony in Sacramento. In attendance were Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Secretary of California Department of Veterans Affairs Roger Brautigan, Director of the California Department of Motor Vehicles George Valverde, former State Sen. Dave Cogdill and numerous local Gold Star families.

Frazier from page 1A the relinquishment of Main Street from CalTrans to the city, a goal that received energetic applause from the audience of approximately 100 guests. “Those are a lot of goals that this council has been working toward for years, and we’re going to complete them this year,” Frazier said. Before Frazier officially settled into his seat as mayor, he paid homage to outgoing Mayor Pat Anderson, thanking her for mentoring him during his first years on the council. Frazier read a proclamation honoring Anderson for completing her third term as mayor, which declared Dec. 14, 2010 as Pat Anderson Day in the city of Oakley. Anderson will hold her seat on the council for two more years, but representatives from the city and the county presented her with gifts for a year well served. County Supervisor Federal Glover honored Anderson for her “outstanding job leading the city,” while Iris Obregon, representing State Assemblywoman Joan Buchanan, offered kind words to Anderson for her “decade of dedication,” serving as an excellent role model to the community.

Kevin Graves received the state’s second Gold Star license plate from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger last week following a ceremony honoring the Discovery Bay resident’s efforts to secure passage of the vanity plates. Graves’ wife Leianne and Sen. Jeff Denham, far left, as well as Graves’ parents Marylin and Gene Graves, far right, shared in the celebration. “The importance of this is not just for our children, but also for the families of all those who have served in the military all the way back to World War II,” said Graves in a recent interview with The Press. “If you had a child who was unfortunately one of the 59,000 who died in Viet-

Council members presented Anderson with mementos, but outgoing councilman Bruce Connelley, who was replaced by Randy Pope, offered the most heartfelt thank-you. “I’ve always known you as Miss Pat, the teacher – that person in your other life, and quite often I felt like I was your radical student,” Connelley said as he presented her with a bouquet of flowers. “I’ve got to thank you for setting me straight at times and dealing with me and putting up with me. Thank you for not whacking my knuckles with the ruler. There’s no question that your heart has always been in the best for Oakley. Thank you for your service.” Anderson thanked her well-wishers, but refused to take all the credit. “I don’t do this alone. There are five of us up there,” Anderson said, pointing to the dais. “I just happen to be the one sitting in the seat. I get to bang the gavel, and I’m the one they usually call when there is something important that needs to be signed, but other than that I’m just one of them. It takes all of us to make this happen. So I thank each one of you (council members) because I can’t do it without you. I can’t do it without the

“All week we’ve been in the classrooms letting the kids know what happened and helping them deal with it all,” said Bordanaro. “As a community, both teachers and parents have been so supportive. The main focus, of course, has been about how to best support her child and the kids who knew her.

nam, you just went into the house and kept it to yourself. This is the perfect opportunity to give those people that pride.” But the road to securing the plates was circuitous, paved with policy snafus and appropriations potholes that obstructed the original bill on the state’s Senate floor in 2007. But Graves, Anderson

and local veterans groups, volunteers and other organizations pressed on and helped secure passage of the bill in 2008. Since then, the groups have worked together to raise the $300,000 for the first 7,500 vanity plates so no costs would be incurred by the state. “The funds were all raised by Gold Star families and other veterans organizations, along with the help of the California Veterans Administration, the governor’s office and Senator Jeff Denham, who coauthored the bill,” said Graves. “It’s also very appropriate that we were able to raise the funds and get it done before the governor left office, since he was involved in this process with us from the beginning.” And now, with the official arrival of the plates, family members of those who have died in active duty in the military will be able to receive a vanity plate free of charge. But for Graves, the realization of the plates means something even more. “It’s great to finally be able to say to those who ask the question, that yes, they (the license plates) are available,” said Graves. “They are here, they are ready and they are available to show respect for those who have died, their families and the sacrifices they have made.

Melena from page 1B way he kicks the ball is amazing.” Both Melena and Contreras agree with Hernandez that Melena’s greatest strengths are his leadership and communication skills. “I communicate with the whole team. I’m the one in charge because I can see the whole field,” said Melena. “I’ve improved a lot – I used to be the quiet one. Last year, I started being more in charge and now I am probably the loudest one here.”

In addition to his prowess in football and soccer, Melena wants to try his hand at tennis in the spring. Despite branching out to other sports, he hopes to get scholarship offers in soccer so he can continue in the game he’s played since age 4. Despite Melena’s sparkling play, the Falcons’ early season road has been rough. Losses against tough East Bay Athletic League opponents has tarred Freedom with an 0-5 record.

The opening game, which took place on Thanksgiving Day, pitted the Patriots against the hometown Las Vegas Falcons. After the Falcons scored on the opening play of the game, Delta responded by dominating most of the game, winning 28-12. The loss was the Vegas squad’s first of the season. Two days later, the Patriots took on the undefeated and high-scoring (33 points per game) Santa Barbara Chargers in the tournament finals.

OBITUARIES James Bernard Borgmeyer Loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, Jim was called to Heaven on Nov. 30, after defying the odds and courageously battling cancer. Jim was born on Feb. 7, 1942 in Loose Creek, Mo., the eldest of nine children born to Lambert and Mary Agnes Borgmeyer. He initially followed a religious vocation by studying the priesthood at La Salette Seminary for two years, and later graduated from Helias High School, both in Jefferson City, Mo. Jim went on to serve in the United States Navy from 1960 to 1964 as a radioman on the USS Mount Katmai. At only 19 years of age, he was the youngest radioman in the Pacific fleet to achieve the rank of E5. He was sent overseas four times, and served in Hawaii, Japan, Hong Kong, Okinawa, Guam and the Philippines. Jim was hired at Sears as a “tirebuster” in 1964. He was promoted numerous times throughout his career, and was located in Concord, San Jose, Chico and Sacramento, as well as the regional headquarters in Hayward while he was the Regional Auto Center manager for 38 stores in Northern California. After 39 years with the company, he retired as the

store manager for Sears Sunrise, the fifth largest store in the nation. At the time of his retirement, he was the only person to achieve this position without a college degree. Jim enjoyed a variety of sports, primarily fishing, golf, baseball and football. He loved taking long road trips with his wife and spending time with his children and grandchildren. He was a kind, generous, hardworking, strong man who always had time to help others and never wavered in loyalty to his family. Jim was preceded in death by his parents, and siblings Mary Beth Borgmeyer and Robert Borgmeyer. He is survived by his loving wife of 38 years, Connie; his six children, Diana Borgmeyer, James B. Borgmeyer II, Kelly Royse, Machelle Borgmeyer, Tina DeRita and Tom Borgmeyer; sonsin-law Darrin DeRita and Bill Royse; daughter-in-law Karina Borgmeyer; five grandchildren, Brittani DeRita, Steffani DeRita, Jarid DeRita, Daltry Royse and Rachelle Borgmeyer; six siblings, Nancy Zimmer, Dot Grotemeyer, Dan Borgmeyer, Larry Borgmeyer, Jerry Borgmeyer and Gary Borgmeyer; and many nieces and nephews.

Michael Henry Deimling May 3,1952-Nov. 19, 2010 Brentwood resident Michael Deimling, 58, passed away peacefully at home on Nov. 19 after a long battle with his illnesses. During his final battle he had been lovingly cared for by his adoring wife, Michelle, and numerous family and friends. Michael was born in Racine, Wis., the third of four children to Joseph and Joan Rita Deimling (both deceased). He is survived by his beloved wife, Michelle; brothers, Eugene (Nancy) and Thomas (Nancy); sister, Joanne Schissel (Michael); one niece and three nephews. Many long-term close friends, dear neighbors and his loving dogs, Snickers and Sammy, survive him. Michael enjoyed a long and successful career with Long’s Drug Stores, beginning as a “box boy” while still in high school and returning after college to work his way up the ladder at company headquarters in Walnut Creek. He was also a man deeply involved and concerned about life away from his work. He was an

active volunteer for many organizations throughout his life, including Big Brothers & Sisters, City of Hope, Guide Dogs for the Blind, and Pulmonary Rehab at John Muir Hospital’s Concord campus. Mike was a warm and loving man who loved people, animals and fun. He was a big Giants, 49ers and Warriors fan. He was also an avid traveler, having traveled all over Europe, Asia and the United States. His favorite places were Hawaii and Paris. To facilitate his travels, he created his own imaginary travel agency he called MoBears Tours. Mike will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. For those wishing to celebrate his life, a service will be held at 2 p.m. today at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, 500 Fairview Ave. in Brentwood. A reception will follow at the Antioch Community Center (Prewett Park), 4703 Lone Tree Way in Antioch. In lieu of flowers, Michael has asked that donations be made to Guide Dogs for the Blind, www.guidedogs.com, or a charity of your choice.
