Oakley welcomes two to City Council

OAKLEY Two familiar faces joined the Oakley City Council in December: Hugh Henderson and Shannon Shaw.

Shaw and Henderson were serving on the city’s Planning Commission when they won their November election races. In recent separate interviews with The Press, they outlined their priorities for the coming year with both emphasizing public safety and economic development.

REGIONAL Nuhad Levasseur spent more than 30 years raising voices in song. Even after their lessons, her students never forgot her. In her time of need, facing a fight with cancer, her students decided to gather their voices again to say “thank you.”

They did more than mail a card. It was a prayer inside a video song.

She opened her first Antioch voice studio, In The Light Voice Studio, in 1992. She opened her second studio in Brentwood in 2007.

Levasseur has had a lasting impact on those around her and remains in contact

with many of her former students and East County residents despite moving to Georgia in 2018. So much so that when she announced her cancer diagnosis on her Insta-

Shannon Shaw Shaw, 44, works as a property manager at Presidio Village Senior Housing in Pittsburg. She was born in Pasadena, earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the California Coast University in Santa Ana and joined the Planning Commission in October 2021. She is married to Jason (a police sergeant in Clayton) and has three adult children: Harley 26, Cole 24, and Ashlynn 22; and two granddaughters: Payson 7 and Ellie 4. She moved to Oakley in 2009.

Shaw said in her video interview that her experience on the commission was “a little scary” at first as it was her first as a public official. “But it prepared me well.”

Better Business Bureau offers tips on preparation, recovery

After a series of storms like East County residents are facing now, many homeowners have to deal with flood damage. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, just one inch of water in a house can cost more than $25,000 in damage. The Better Business Bureau urges homeowners to take care when choosing businesses and contractors to help with the clean-up work.

What to do when your house is flooded

This is how navigate the recovery and restoration process:

Check your insurance policy – Flood damage is not covered by standard homeowners or renters insurance policies. In some high-risk flood areas, home and business owners may be required by law to carry flood insurance.

Repairing the damage – Don’t make any permanent changes to your property until you get approval from your insurance provider. They may not fully reimburse you for repairs made without their permission. Take photos of the storm damage to show your insurance company.

Get multiple estimates – Shop around and get at least three different estimates before deciding on a contractor. Make sure the estimates are broken down the same way. Watch out for high-pressure sales tactics and businesses of questionable repute — research company profiles at BBB. org to find reputable contractors. You can find more helpful tips on choosing a reliable contractor here.

Ask for proof of liability, workers compensation, and licensing – Verify that the contractor has the correct license to do work in California. This protects you in case

something happens while working on your property.

Get everything in writing – Ask for a written contract from anyone you hire. Clearly written, detailed proposals that are broken down into separate line items are a good sign that the contractor is being thorough and has prepared an accurate estimate.

Beware of scams

Watch out for scammers who are seeking to take advantage of an owner’s haste to repair the damage. Here are a few red flags:

• Door-to-door workers who claim to have leftover materials. Check to see if they have solicitation permits and ask for identification. Don’t agree to front porch sales pitches.

• A contractor who shows up unannounced and claims your home is unsafe. If you are concerned about

possible structural damage in your home, have an engineer, architect, or building official inspect it. While most roofing contractors abide by the law, be careful allowing someone you do not know to inspect your roof. An unethical contractor may actually create damage to get work.

• Never pay in full for all repairs in advance. If you are making a down payment, make sure it is no more than 10% of the contract price or $1,000, whichever is less.

• Businesses without local addresses. If a company doesn’t have a permanent place of business, this may be cause for concern.

How to prepare for a flood

Steps that businesses and homeowners can take to reduce the impact of a flood:

• Take pictures/video of your business or home as a point of reference in the event of an emergency.

• Back up critical digital files on a portable external hard drive and store it away from the office.

• Properly anchor fuel and propane tanks so they don’t float away in case of flooding. Also, ensure you keep your fuel levels full ahead of storms.

• Have copies of your insurance policies on hand and have an electronic version available.

• Collect family photos and other mementos in a centralized and easily accessible area, preferably in a watertight container.

• Keep medicines together in a waterproof container.

• Prepare an emergency kit with a change of clothes, weather-appropriate footwear, flashlight, water, and battery- or crank-operated radio to monitor the weather without electricity.

• Discuss your emergency plan with your family. Designate a “safe place” inside if you have to take shelter and a meeting place outside in case you have to evacuate.

Deep snow not enough to end drought

Latest snowpack survey shows 55 inches in Sierra

The Department of Water Resources’ first snow survey of the season at Phillips Station on Tuesday, Jan. 3, recorded 55.5 inches of snow depth and a snow water equivalent of 17.5 inches. That is 177 percent of average for this location.

The snow water equivalent measures the amount of water contained in the snowpack and is a key component of DWR’s water supply forecast. Statewide the snowpack is 174 percent of average for this date, according to a state press release.

On average, the Sierra snowpack supplies about 30 percent of California’s water needs and is an important factor in determining how DWR manages the state’s water resources. Its natural ability to store water is why the Sierra snowpack is often referred to as California’s “frozen reservoir.”

A below-average snowpack affects water users across the state, putting further stress on the environment and critical groundwater supplies, the release said.

Heavy rain and deep snow are forecast in the state over the next several days, with the threat of flooding in parts of California. Conditions this season have proven to be strikingly similar to last year when California saw some early rainstorms and strong December snow totals only to have the driest January through March on record.

“The significant Sierra snowpack is good news, but unfortunately these same storms are bringing flooding to parts of California,” said DWR Director Karla

Nemeth. “This is a prime example of the threat of extreme flooding during a prolonged drought as California experiences more swings between wet and dry periods brought on by our changing climate.”

One year ago, the Phillips survey showed the seventh highest January measurements on record for that location. However, those results were followed by three months of extremely dry conditions and by April 1 of last year, the Phillips survey measurements were the third lowest on record.

More telling than a survey at a single location are DWR’s electronic readings from 130 stations placed throughout the state. Measurements indicate that state-

wide, the snowpack’s snow water equivalent is 17.1 inches, or 174 percent of average for this date.

This January’s results are similar to results in 2013 and 2022 when the Jan. 1 snowpack was at or above average conditions, only for dry weather to set in and lead to drought conditions by the end of the water year (Sept. 30). In 2013, the first snow survey of the season also provided promising results after a wet December similar to the newest results.

However, the following January and February were exceptionally dry, and the water year ended as the driest on record, contributing to a record-breaking drought.

In 2022, record-breaking December snowfall was again followed by the driest January through March period on record.

“Big snow totals are always welcome, but we still have a long way to go before the critical April 1 total,” said DWR’s Snow Surveys and Water Supply Forecasting Unit Manager Sean de Guzman. “It’s always great to be above average this early in the season, but we must be resilient and remember what happened last year. If January through March of 2023 turn out to be similar to last year, we would still end the water year in severe drought with only half of an average year’s snowpack.”

Due to these increasing swings from dramatically wet to dry conditions, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s recently released “California’s Water Supply Strategy, Adapting to a Hotter, Drier Future” calls for investing in new projects and technologies that will modernize how the state manages water. In alignment with the administration’s strategy, the recently adopted 2022 Update to the Central Valley Flood Protection Plan identifies actions needed to adapt much of California’s flood infrastructure to a rapidly changing climate.

Current climate research indicates the state will see bigger swings from extreme heat and dry conditions to larger and more powerful storms that deliver temporary large boosts to the state snowpack as well as flood risk.

DWR encourages Californians to visit for water-saving tips and information, and to continue to conserve California’s most precious resource, rain or shine.

DWR conducts five media-oriented snow surveys at Phillips Station each winter near the first of each month, January through April and, if necessary, May. The next survey is tentatively scheduled for Feb. 1.

From the editor’s desk "

This is what we were thinking

“What were you thinking?”

Editors get this question a lot. Whenever something controversial or touchy gets in the newspaper or on our website, readers want to know why or how. Most of the time, we were thinking. And usually, a hot issue gets thought about a lot and debated in our newsroom.

Recently, The Press published a letter to the editor by Juan Perez of Brentwood. He wrote to us about a recent shooting incident and asked why the police hadn’t identified the Race or descriptions of the suspects.

What were you thinking?


In what world do you think printing Juan Perez’s letter was a good idea? The last thing we need in this world of hate is a letter from an illiterate racist to stir the pot. Don’t publish them. It serves no purpose whatsoever!


The Press invites your comments. Letters must be no longer than 325 words and include name, address and phone number for confirmation.

The Press reserves the right to edit submissions for length, clarity, potential libel and taste, or to not print letters we feel violate our standards of acceptance.

Opinions expressed in letters are not necessarily the opinions of The Press, whose opinions are contained in clearly marked editorials.

Send correspondence to The Press, 248 Oak St., Brentwood, California, 94513; or email editor@


Perez chose to take a stroll into the minefield of Race. The resulting explosions that followed in his wake are visible on our Opinion page by the several outraged readers who wrote back to us.

As a general rule, we don’t promote or publish hate speech or racial comments in our newspaper.

But our job is not to turn a blind eye to it, either. A community newspaper is obligated to tackle and air out raw issues that divide us. Sometimes, that hurts. We know that and appre-

Letters to the editor

Letter mischaracterizes ‘those people’

Sorry Juan, but using the words “those people” three times in your letter of 12/30 is a dead giveaway to your racism.

You want the police to give a description of law breakers that are Black, so that we will know who to look out for? Every day, the law is broken by people of every race. You say “those people” have a lack of character and violent culture.

The only thing ‘those people’ have that is different from other races is more melanin. Otherwise, they are just humans with the same desires for life, liberty, and success as all of the other humans.

As a white male, I don’t want to

ciate the impact of hurtful words.

But the issue of Race has been dividing us since the first slave ship landed on our shores. It’s still there among us every day in every one of our cities.

Your newspaper’s job is to serve as a mirror of your community, good and bad. Sometimes, that experience can be uncomfortable but we don’t think it’s irresponsible to promote a debate. A civil one.

That’s what we were thinking. We wanted to know what you were thinking.

be identified with most of the mass shooters in this country, who also happened to be white males. Do you want to be identified by the worst acts of the people from your culture?

Press’s decision to run letter ‘baffling’


I just wanted to say that I am baffled as to why you would publish in the latest Opinion section what Juan Perez wrote. Whatever excuse you have is not a good excuse, because there is no excuse to publish and print hateful comments from uninformed angry people. REAL CLASSY MOVE, EDITOR!!!

Reader ‘disappointed’ in The Press Editor,

I am surprised and very disappointed by The Press. Why did it publish without comment, and therefore give credibility to, the Letter to the Editor by Juan Perez in the Dec. 30 issue?

I do not know Mr. Perez; nor am I aware of the event he is referring to.

The reported event is not the subject of my comments. I am concerned about the fact this letter was published in the first place. You don’t need to be a social scientist (I’m not) or to have been born and raised White in the segregated South of the 1950s and ‘60s (I was) to recognize blatant racist rhetoric.

The Press clearly crossed the line of responsible journalism when it chose to publish the Perez letter. This paper owes the community an apology.

Joyce Evon Ludwig

Aug. 22, 1937 – Dec. 26, 2022

She was born on her parents’ farm in Union County, South Dakota to parents Andrew (Tommy) and Sigrid Eggen. Her parents were farmers, both of Norwegian ancestry. She had an older sister Lois, an older brother Arlo, and a younger sister Sandra. She attended rural elementary schools Starr and Nora, and then went to Alcester High School in Alcester, S.D., where she and Duane were classmates.

After high school, Joyce worked at a car dealership in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, for one year. During that time, she and Duane, who attended South Dakota State University in Brookings, S.D., were dating before Duane joined the U.S. Army.

She married Duane Ludwig on Dec. 29, 1956, while Duane was home on leave and within a few days they moved to Virginia where Duane was stationed at Fort Eustis, headquarters for the U.S. Army Transportation Corps. While in Virginia, she worked at Langley Air Force Base and for the Army AG Reproduction Department as a typist. During that time, she lived in off-base housing with Duane in Warwick (now Newport News) and Seaford, Va.

After Duane’s Army tour ended, Joyce and Duane returned to rural Alcester, S.D., where they lived and farmed for three years. It was during this time that Lori and Lynda were born. They then moved to Vermillion, S.D., where Duane attended Business School at the University of South Dakota and it was during this time that Gregory was born.

After Duane graduated, they moved to Omaha, Neb., where Duane worked for Wausau Insurance Company. In 1970, three weeks after Aimee was born, they moved to Concord, Calif. after Duane received a promotion. Joyce was a stay-at-home mother for the next 20 years while working part-time at the Contra Costa Times Newspaper as a Route Supervisor and then in the Circulation Department.

Joyce is a lifelong member of the Lutheran Church. Baptized and married at Roseni Lutheran Church in South Dakota, she had attended Lutheran churches wherever she lived.

At Concordia Lutheran Church in Concord, she was an active member of the choir and served as wedding consultant for many years. Since joining Saint Matthew Lu-

theran Church in 1994, she had participated in bible study groups with close friends.

Joyce was preceded in death by her parents, older sister Lois and her husband Burdette Sundstrom, son-in-law Terry Wilkinson, husband of Lori, and son-in-law Daniel Zamora, husband of Aimee as well as several dogs.

She is survived by her husband Duane and four children: Lori, Lynda, Greg, and Aimee. Also surviving are grandson Shaun and granddaughter Danielle, children of Lori, grandsons Ethan, Ryan, and Aedan, children of Greg and his wife Christina, and grandson Landon, Aimee’s son. She has four great grandchildren: Benjamin and Abigail, Shaun and his wife Hillary’s children and Brooklyn and Haylee, Danielle, and her husband Curt’s children.

Joyce enjoyed being a mom, grandmother, and great grandmother, visiting with friends and vacationing in various locations, most favorably Maui, Hawaii. She had been in declining health since July and died at home surrounded by family on Dec. 26 just three days short of celebrating 66 years of marriage with Duane.

To our beloved wife, mom, grandmother, and great grandmother......there are no goodbyes for us; wherever you are, you are always in our hearts.

Private services will be held at Saint Matthew Lutheran Church Memorial Garden and Columbarium in Walnut Creek.

SeaWolves to hold short-course meet Jan. 7-8

Brentwood team seeks more swimmers

The Brentwood SeaWolves will hold a Short Course swim meet Jan. 7-8 at Heritage High School in Brentwood from 7:30 3 p.m., and spectators are welcome to attend.

“Our Zone 2 teams consist of about 30 teams in the Alameda and Contra Costa County area,” said Head Coach Pam Araujo. “What we expect to see at this competition is swimmers having fun and swimming fast!”

Araujo said that the Brentwood SeaWolves are always looking for more swimmers, adding that there are ongoing tryouts for those interested in joining.

“We have been in the community for a while,” said Araujo. “We’d love to see new swimmers come out and try out and have fun and compete.”

Last month, Araujo said three swimmers from the SeaWolves stood out at the Pacific Swimming Winter Age Group Championships in Santa Clara.

• Jonathan Guo placed 10th in the 1314 Boys 200-yard individual medley (2:14.62) and placed 7th in the 13-14 boys 50-yard freestyle (24.70).

• Lyla Ybanez Placed 7th in the 10 & under 50-yard backstroke (34.63)

• Morgan Nelson placed 8th in the 1112 Girls 50-yard backstroke (31.67),

10th in the Girls 11-12 100-yard butterfly (1:06.76), and 6th in the Girls 11-12 50-yard butterfly (28.36).

Nelson, 12, says she has been swimming for eight years and has a goal of one day going to the Olympics.

“It just seems so big to me,” said Nelson, who idolizes legendary Olympian Michael Phelps. “Follow what you like. If you like it, keep doing it. Find your passion!”

The team lends itself to helping young swimmers do just that. Perse-

verance, integrity, and hard work are the essential components of the team’s philosophy, according to their website. Along with self-discipline and attention to detail, teaching these concepts is their primary aim in developing athletic excellence, the website says.

“The SeaWolves provide a safe, supportive and positive environment for all members to achieve their highest potential, both in and out of the water,” according to their mission statement. “We

encourage community, family, and individual participation at all levels.”

The SeaWolves are a year-round competitive team founded in September 2007 by six families, with a goal to teach and promote competitive swimming and provide training, instruction, and encouragement for increased proficiency in competitive aquatic sports to youths of all ages in Brentwood and the surrounding areas, the website says. In February 2008, the SeaWolves held their first practice with 12 swimmers. Water polo was added later that year as the second aquatic sport, and since then have been the longest running USA Swimming and USA Water Polo team in the area, offering both sports under one team. Today, the SeaWolves compete with other USA Swimming teams in sanctioned meets.

“Since we started our program, we have had a number of swimmers go on to swim in college and at the Olympic trials,” said Araujo. “This takes focus, determination, and hard work. We have highly qualified coaches skilled at instructing all ages and abilities. We offer programs from the novice up to national levels.”

In addition to competing at the regional and national level (Olympic Trials), Brentwood SeaWolves athletes have also competed at the Age Group Championship (formerly known as Junior Olympics) level.

Public can weigh in on new Oakley Library

City Council to discuss topic at Jan. 24 meeting

Residents can weigh in on what they want the new Oakley Library to offer when the City Council meets next on Jan. 24. City Manager Josh McMurray said that the early analysis for the construction of the new Oakley Library will be presented at that meeting.

The city hired the San Jose government consulting firm Management Partners in 2022 to assist with early analysis with findings originally scheduled to be presented towards the end of 2022.

The official agenda for the Jan. 24 City Council meeting will be announced Jan. 19. “City Staff is excited to share the analysis on a potential new Oakley Library

to the City Council and the public January 24th,” McMurray said in an email. “This will be an opportunity to receive feedback and direction from the City Council as well as hear from the community.”

Friends of the Oakley Library president Lorena Campos encourages the community to attend the meeting to show support for the construction of the library.

“This is an important meeting to at-


in 1999 and was extended until 2010. The lease is month to month.

“Right now, the Oakley Library is situated in 3,000 square feet of space inside of Freedom High School,” Campos said. “The Oakley Library needs to have a permanent space with enough square footage to accommodate the needs of Oakley residents. Libraries provide vital resources, more than physical books, including spaces and opportunities for residents to get together and build community.”

tend for anyone in support of the city’s very first standalone library,” she said. “We encourage all residents to stay informed on the progress of this discussion and to show support for the library. Our local representatives need to hear support for a library directly from its constituents.”

The Oakley Library currently borrows space that it initially leased from Freedom High School. The lease began

A new Oakley Library has been in the works for some time. During the Sept. 28, 2021 Oakley City Council meeting, McMurray proposed a cooperative agreement between Contra Costa County and the City of Oakley to commit $400,000 to the demolition of the substation, which did not pass.

Oakley City Council then passed the motion at the April 26, 2022 Oakley City Council meeting on a 3-0 vote so that the city and the county will split the $400,000 substation demolition costs.

tion of the Christmas song “O Holy Night” to brighten her spirits and wish her a Merry Christmas.

The goal of the video was not only to do that, but also for her former students to express how much they appreciate her and what she has done for them, “Nuhad is the most giving person you will ever meet,” said Justin Llamas, who was Levasseur’s student from 2009-2018. “She has always shown extra care to her students, making herself available to anyone who has an important audition or show coming up. She really sacrifices herself for the betterment of those around her. We owe her so much, which is another reason why it hurts to see her in so much pain.”

According to Llamas, Levasseur’s students have branched out well past the Bay Area, reaching success all over the world. “She has had students on The Voice, American Idol, Showtime at the Apollo, Sing Like A Star, and much more,” Llamas said. “She also currently has students starring on Broadway, doing national tours, and collecting major record deals. She was very involved with the Golden Hills church, as well as other ministries. Some of her students have become worship leaders and other types of performers all around the Bay Area.”

Hillary Fowlie, Levasseur’s daughter, reached out

Council from page 1

She would like to see the city take an “aggressive” approach to boosting the staffing levels at the Police Department to 44 officers. Shaw is also proposing the establishment of a new substation near Bethel Island or the far east border of the city.

She said she is a big supporter of the city’s proposed 55-acre regional park along Sellers Road.

Shaw also reported that the most pressing issue that Oakley voters were concerned about was the fire evacuation plans along the Cypress corridor.

The singers then signed off by wishing for her joy, and expressing their love for her during this fight.

The final student to sign off was Christina Jardine, who thanked Levasseur for all she has done and for taking such an active role in her life. “Thank you so much, Nuhad, for being a big part of my life and basically my other mom,” she said. “I love you so much, and I hope you have a very Merry Christmas for you and your family.

She also received an outpouring of love and support when she announced her diagnosis, stating that her previous bout of cancer had returned and she was diagnosed with Stage 3 Multiple Myeloma. Stage 3 Multiple Myeloma is an aggressive form of cancer in which many cancer cells spread throughout the body, according to the National Cancer Institute. Undergoing therapy, she was not available to comment.

Levasseur disclosed that she would be undergoing 10 days of radiation and would begin chemotherapy after that in the hopes that she can proceed with a bone marrow transplant after four months.

She asked her community for prayers and said that she is leaning heavily on her faith to get her through this trying time, “With God, all things are possible and though I have quite the journey ahead, I’m ready for the battle. I love you all!” she said.

Henderson also is firmly behind the development of the city’s proposed Delta regional park. “We need to deliver to the public what has been promised by past city councils.”
