Discovery Bay wants project relocated

So long, high school

by Dawnmarie Fehr

by Dawnmarie Fehr

REGIONAL In the wake of the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, last month, East County districts are reviewing their active shooter policies and preparing to update training in an effort to keep students and staff safe before the new school year begins. Most districts have not highlighted this type of training in the past two years as the struggles of distance learning and the COVID-19 pandemic took center stage. Liberty In the Liberty Union High School District, Superintendent Eric Volta said

DISCOVERY BAY The county is thinking about changing the zoning so a developer can build apartments that Discovery Bay leaders and residents don’t want. The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to explore the zoning change for the vacant lot on the corner of Sand Point Road and Discovery Bay Boulevard despite those strong objections. The change in zoning would allow Anton Development Company (ADC) to build three-story apartment buildings with a total of 170 units and 303 parking spaces. Those objecting to the project cite traffic and school congestion, aging town infrastructure, and a lack of fire, police and medical services. Supervisor Diane Burgis – whose district includes Discovery Bay – defended her decision to go against the wishes of her constituents. “I’m skeptical that the project will happen, and I understand and share the concerns of the community,” Burgis said after the vote. “I voted to authorize (the Department of Conservation and Development) to move forward with the application review and due diligence because I support the rights of property owners to have a fair and thorough process.” ADC submitted a request

“Top Gun” takes off with local help Patriot Jet Team’s cameras help shoot aerial scenes by Jake Menez Staff Writer

BYRON East County residents may be accustomed to seeing the Patriot Jet Team in the skies overhead performing their air show for weddings and other events. But they may not realize that the team can be seen somewhere else too — this time on the big screen as part of the new Tom Cruise film, “Top Gun: Maverick.” The Patriot Jet Team’s pilots and engineers helped to develop the cameras that were used to capture the aerobatic stunts that are on full display in the films, according to the team’s owner, Randy see Patriot Jet page 26

Vegetation fire burns 159 acres in area 67 people lose power in unincorporated Brentwood

A firefighting helicopter makes a drop during a 159-acre vegetation fire in rural Brentwood on June 9.

by Melissa van Ruiten Staff Writer

Strong winds fueled a 159-acre fire in a field adjacent to Walnut Boulevard and Marsh Creek Road in unincorporated Brentwood on June 9. Even though there were no reported injuries, 67 people were without power for an undetermined amount of time. When fire crews arrived just after 2:20 p.m., they reported the fire was two acres, but due to the wind it quickly ballooned, resulting in the decision to add a second alarm to the call. Responding units came from CalFire Santa Clara and Lake Napa Units, East Contra Costa Fire Protection District and Contra Costa Fire Protection District (ConFire). “We had a total of four air tankers, two ‘copters, 17 fire engines, two hand crews, and three bulldozers assigned to the incident,” said CalFire Battalion Chief Jesse Winnen. In less than 3 hours, fire crews were able to stop forward progress and reach 75% containment, but not before the fire grew to 159 acres, roughly the size of three football fields, officials said. The weather – 100-degree heat, 20% hu-

midity, and 10-15 mph winds – helped spread the fire and make it more severe, officials said. “With the drought, with the heat, with the expected heat (over that weekend), everything is really dry,” said Winnen.”The relative humidity is dropping, and the winds are kind of the normal winds we do have out here in East Contra Costa County.” Surrounding roads were shut down – Vasco Road and Walnut Boulevard at their respective intersections with Camino Diablo and Marsh Creek Road – and weren’t expected to reopen until midnight. Pacific Gas and

Electric crews briefly shut down power, leaving 67 customers without electricity until they were able to determine the structural integrity of the poles in the area. All damaged poles will be replaced in the coming weeks. “There were a couple of structures threatened off of Walnut [Boulevard], but the structure threat has been mitigated,” Winnen said. “As far as I know, no structures were burned or destroyed. A couple of people were moved out of the area, he added, but they were allowed to return. Fire crews remained on scene through-

out the night and into the following day to prevent any potential flare-ups. The following day, Friday, June 10, at about 12:45 p.m., crews from the same agencies were called back out to the same area to battle a 50-acre vegetation fire along Vasco Road, between Walnut Boulevard and Highway 4 for about 6 hours before it was contained. The cause of the fires is still under investigation. To view a video and a slideshow, visit www.thepress.net/multimedia

County health officials ‘strongly recommend’ indoor mask wearing

Electrical problems are believed to be the cause of a residential fire on the 3800 block of Creekside Way in Oakley. No injuries were reported in the fire.

Recent surge in COVID-19 cases prompts advice

Photo by Melissa van Ruiten

Fire damages home OAKLEY A man and a cat escaped injury in a suspected electrical fire that damaged an Oakley home on June 13, an East Contra Costa Fire Protection District battalion chief said. The outdoor fire on the 3800 block of Creekside Way burned up the rear of the structure and spread into the eaves at about 6:40 p.m. before being put out some 35 minutes later. Crews from both the East Contra Costa and Contra Costa Fire Protection Districts responded to the scene to extinguish the blaze. Justin Luckhardt, the son of the homeowners, said he was watching TV when he heard “punching sounds” coming

from different parts of the house. He and a cat in the home at the time of the fire escaped safely. “What I experienced was I was watching TV and heard what sounded like someone punching the wall,” he said. “I was like ‘What is that loud noise?’ I go and open the sliding glass door and, lo and behold, my entire house is on fire. I freaked the hell out and did everything you are not supposed to do. I got my cat out and immediately called 911.” A monetary damage estimate was not immediately disclosed.

With Contra Costa and other Bay Area counties seeing an increase in COVID-19 cases, health officials are reiterating their strong recommendation to wear masks indoors. Omicron subvariants, which are even more contagious than the original Omicron, are driving the recent increase in cases. Outbreaks in workplaces and schools have also sharply increased in the past few weeks. Antioch has seen 794 cases the last two weeks (population 112,848), with 441 reported in Brentwood (population 66,907), 320 in Oakley (population 42,895) and 75 reported in Discovery Bay (population 15,358). Antioch’s recent 14-day case count is the third highest of 31 county areas tracked. Brentwood’s is seventh, with Oakley 10th and Discovery Bay 21st. Concord registered the most cases

in the past 14 days: 831 (population 130,002). While masking remains optional for most public indoor settings, health officials say wearing face covering during periods of increased transmission is a simple best practice to protect against COVID-19. “There’s a lot of COVID out there right now, so it’s time to mask up in public again,” said Dr. Ori Tzvieli, health officer for Contra Costa County. Tzvieli said people should also stay home if they feel sick and get tested. He added that people eligible for booster shots should get one since protection from the COVID-19 vaccines wane over time. County officials also remind residents that boosters are available across the county. To schedule a booster appointment, call 1-833-829-2626 or visit https://covidvaccine.cchealth.org/ COVIDVaccine/. Free Home testing kits are also available at all Contra Costa County libraries. For a complete list of library locations, visit https://ccclib.org/

Local MESA team to represent state at national competition this month by Dawnmarie Fehr Correspondent

A team of four girls from Orchard Park School in Oakley will represent California at the National MESA (Mathematics, Engineering, Science, Achievement) competition at the end of the month. To reach the national level, Bethany Fumar, 13, Natalia Cortez, 14, Yaretzi Costilla, 13 and Bella Rose, 13, won the state-level National Engineering Design Competition earlier this month with their project titled Therm-Alert. The girls had to program a microprocessor to engineer a human-centered solution to an individual or group equity issue, and they chose to help people working outside in the heat. “Our project is a device called ThermAlert and it detects beginning symptoms of heat strokes for field workers and construction workers,” Natalia said. “It also has an interface so that family members can be alerted to the user’s temperature.” Bethany explained the device is an armband that measures user body temperature and heart rate, setting off an alarm when they reach dangerous levels. “It’s a heat stroke alerting system,” Bethany said. “When a field worker or construction worker is near heat stroke, it

will send an alarm, LED lights will light up or a buzzer will go off, and the device will send information to an app. We want to add a moisture or sweat measure to make it more precise.” To compete, the team had to submit a poster, design brief and prototype pitch, and have a live technical interview. The state competition was virtual, and the national competition will be as well. Though

disappointed the live competition in New Mexico was canceled, the team is still excited to be part of it. “It’s been a really fulfilling experience,” Natalia said, adding she had learned about different career options. “Doing this project really did open a lot of doors and it’s something that helps our community, and it gives you a sense of achievement that you were able to do

something for your community.” MESA is an extracurricular college and career preparatory program focused on increasing student diversity and achievement in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), according to Janiene Langford, a MESA director. Some 18,000 students in California participate in the program each year and enter numerous competitions. The top two teams from each MESA center then move on to regional level competition, then state and nationals. Langford said the girls have achieved something impressive with their hard work. “NEDC requires an incredible amount of work and skill combining the ability to recognize and challenge societal inequities, hardware and coding knowledge, business acumen, written communication skills, and public speaking,” Langford said. “This is no easy competition and the teams who advance to Regionals and State are fierce. This is the second year in a row Bethany, Natalia, and Yaretzi have competed at the State level.” MESA was founded in California in 1970 and has grown to a national program with chapters in nine states.

Festa Italia brings the Italian experience to Pittsburg by Jake Menez Staff Writer

While there’s no substitute for the old-world charm of summering in Italy, Pittsburg’s upcoming Festa Italia could be a close second. The event on the weekend of June 24 in John Buckley Square promises to be “a cultural journey filled with authentic Italian food, music, art and tradition,” according to its website. The weekendlong party will include a bocce ball tournament and a spaghetti eating contest in addition to a lineup of entertainment featuring musical acts such as Louis Prima Jr. as well as comedians such as Mike Marino. “It’s really important that we keep the Italian culture alive,” says the event’s promoter, Anthony Lane. “It’s such a rich culture in so many ways and I think it’s something people will enjoy celebrating.” The festival’s greatest strength, Lane says, is its lineup of all-Italian entertainment. The half dozen musical acts include

a mix of local talent, such as Pittsburg’s own Vocal Ease and The Boogeymen, and national acts such as Rhode Island’s Cory Pesaturo. Lane’s own band, the Anthony “Nino” Lane Band out of Monterey, will play the festival as well. The other aspect to best showcase Italian culture is the food, according to Lane. “I’m very passionate about the wide range of food we’re bringing to the table,” he says. “No pun intended.” Lane said he was particular about the type of food that would be offered at the event. Knowing the importance of traditional Italian cuisine and the difficulty in finding some of those dishes, even at Italian restaurants, led him to select an extensive menu that ranges from authentic Italian-style pizza to more uncommon dishes such as pasta carbonara and seafood dishes like calamari. “The support I’m getting from the city is incredible. It’s gonna be a great festival,” Lane gushed. “(That) Saturday is going to be a great day and Sunday is gonna just knock it out of the park.” For tickets and a full list of events, visit www.festaitaliapittsburgca.com

them to reach out to you. They need to strengthen their wings of independence. That means it is time for you to explore your hobbies, interests and career/volunteer goals. What excited you before being a parent that you can revive? What interests would you like to explore? Brainstorming with a significant other, a friend, or even a professional coach can spark the inner fire you let smolder while you nurtured others. It is time to replace the meaningful experience of parenting with other activities that bring out your passions and provide you meaning. Experts also advise to keep a journal to work out your grief and sense of loss as you move forward to this next phase of living. Finally, may I invite you to consider rekindling your marriage and other relationships? With children, we often sacrifice adult relationships for our children. This includes time with your spouse now that you are not revolving around the children. This next stage — the empty nest stage — can be the most empowering time of your life. It is up to you to allow that to happen by truly searching into your inner core of who you want to be. If you are stuck, it may be time to reach out to a professional.

next chapter of your life? You want to support them as they transition to independence. Yet, you are also acknowledging you need more for yourself, too. Since a child moving out of the house is a healthy and normal occurrence, the symptoms of empty nest syndrome often go unrecognized. This can result in a loss of purpose for a parent, especially if the parent is a full time, stay at home parent. How do you create a healthy transition during this natural stage of life? To begin, it is important to recognize what you are experiencing. There are three major characteristics of empty nesters: 1. Grief; 2. A sense of emptiness; 3. The combination of fear and worry. Once you identify what you are experiencing and recognize the symptoms, you can manage your own wellness to be present for your family and especially for yourself. As you have named what you are experiencing, acknowledge that this is normal. However, to dwell at this stage may cause depression, anxiety and other mental and physical issues. Fortunately, this is about coping to rejuvenate yourself. In the age of technology, it is easy to text, Facetime and Zoom with your children. However, you want to respect your adult child’s space and allow

You did everything right. You supported your children through their successes and challenges. You cheered for them and you comforted them. Your life has been a roller coaster as you survived the trials and celebrations of parenting. The invitations are now out and you are ready for the

graduation traditions. Then why do you feel that void, that feeling of incompleteness? If you can relate to any of this, you may be experiencing ‘empty nest syndrome’. Though there is no clinical diagnosis, empty nest syndrome is a phenomenon in which parents feel sadness, a sense of loss, a void, as their last child heads to college or moves on to their next stage of life. For some people, this is a reminder that time waits for no one. As your child moves into their next journey, how do you acknowledge what you are feeling to transition into your own

I gained myself – finally Editor’s note: In honor of Pride Month, Brentwood resident Emily Banks shares her story of self discovery. I sat on the couch that night, like all other nights, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert playing in the background, the kids upstairs in bed, my husband and I uest settling down for a comment show or two before I fell asleep, myself. I opened my mouth to comment on the opening monologue and instead said, “I think I am gay,” as if continuing an ongoing conversation. The words tumbled out on their own. I closed my mouth. But I couldn’t put the words back inside. I glanced at my husband. He looked ... resigned. Not a stupid man, he probably saw the writing on the wall when I told him two years earlier I thought I was bi. Or perhaps it was my ongoing crush on Mary Louise Parker that showed my hand. Either way, the look on his face was not one of shock. I burst into tears. “I’m sorry,” I whispered. It had been building in me for weeks, months, years, a lifetime. Detached from myself for a moment, I wondered idly when this had started. After the birth of my daughter, when I started Googling “can you be gay at 35?” In junior high, when I felt that SPARK when Melissa L. accidentally brushed my arm in PE? Earlier? My rainbow obsession. Was that a sign? Did it matter? The truth was, I’d always known on some level. It was just never safe for me. Raised in a conservative, fundamentalist Christian home, I would have been sent off to Pray The Gay Away, isolated on some farm in Idaho with nothing but a devotional and a Bible to read, until I put myself so far

back in the closet I’d never see the light of day. Conversion therapy at its finest. I can’t remember, now, just two and half years later, what we talked about that night. How we left things. It took me a few weeks to feel like I could inhabit my own body again. We tried all the usual things of an ending marriage. Counseling. Date nights. Opening the marriage. But it simply wasn’t meant to be. Our forever was coming to a close, and I was sad. Relieved in a way, but sad. My husband had been by my side for some of the hardest years of my life, when my health failed and I didn’t know if I’d live to see 40. How could I embark on a life separate from him? How could I exist without him by my side? I didn’t know if it was possible. But what I did know, without any doubt, was that the status quo was not working anymore. Depression hovered over me like Eeyore’s rain cloud, coloring every step I took. Each breath was an effort. One foot in front of the other, I repeated to myself. “Just until the kids are in college,” I told myself once. My kids, at the time, were 9 and 7. College was a long way off. On outings into San Francisco with my kids, I looked wistfully at the women I saw holding hands. I wanted to be one of them. I wanted to belong. I wanted to feel like I fit in my own life. I didn’t want this unnamed secret living in me, this longing for a certain type of connection that I was lacking. I didn’t want to be lacking. I was scared, terrified, of what I was risking. Of what I was walking away from. A steady marriage. A man who loved me. A family unit that I’d always wanted. Parents who supported me. Brothers. And I wasn’t wrong to be scared. I lost a lot. I lost my parents. I lost my brothers. I lost my kids’ extended family. I lost the security of my marriage. But I didn’t lose my family. My husband stood by me, and remains a friend and loyal supporter. My kids adore me, and I them. My local friends made me a cake when I told them I was divorcing. “You can do this!” It read. My distant friends sent cards and emails and left comments and sent so, so much love. But mostly I gained. I gained selfrespect and certainty. I gained freedom. I gained comfort in my own skin. Now, I absent-mindedly trace circles on my girlfriend’s hand with my thumb, The Late Show playing in the background. Her cat paws at the strings of my hoodie. I rest my head on her shoulder. “I love you,” she whispers. I smile, I float, I soar. I gained myself. – Emily Banks

Liberty champion grappler commits to Iowa by Michael Dixon Correpondent

Not long after she won the California Interscholastic Federation State wrestling championship, Liberty High School wrestler Samantha Calkins was contacted by people she’d been hoping to hear from. The University of Iowa expressed interest in having her visit the school and ultimately, hoped that Calkins would attend Iowa as a student and be a part of the women’s wrestling team. The Hawkeyes were Calkins’ first choice but she also wanted to keep her options open. Other finalists included Sacred Heart University in Connecticut, North Central University in Minnesota and Iowa Wesleyan University, which is roughly an hour away from the University of Iowa in Iowa City. The timing was fortuitous. Samantha was already planning on going to Iowa for a tournament that her brother, David Calkins, was wrestling in at that time. So, on that trip, Samantha also went to Iowa City to see the campus. She liked what she saw. One week after

Liberty High wrestling star Samantha Calkins will join the University of Iowa wrestling team.

Press file photo

her visit, Calkins made her decision to attend and wrestle for the University of Iowa official. “The coach there will help support my goals and what I want to do in college and out,” Calkins said. “I love the campus. They have a lot of resources for student-athletes. And when I stepped on

it, it just felt like home.” Women’s wrestling is still relatively new in college sports. But Calkins will be joining a powerhouse program. Iowa has long been known as one of the best programs in men’s wrestling and could be the same for women. Iowa -- a Big Ten school -- is the first university from

a Power Five conference (Atlantic Coast Conference, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and Southeastern Conference) to officially sponsor women’s wrestling, according to the NCAA. Calkins is staying busy in wrestling before going to Iowa. In June, she’ll be wrestling at the Junior Girl National Dual Team event for California. In July, she’ll be defending her National Championship in Fargo. Once she gets to Iowa, Calkins has lofty goals in wrestling. “I want to be a four-time NCAA All-American, a multiple-time national champion and a multiple-time World team member,” she said. “And don’t want my career to end after college. I want my career to go on to world circuits after.” Calkins also has an idea of what she’ll study at Iowa and what she wants to do in her career after college and wrestling. “I’m under the Pre-Physician assistant program,” she said. “I want to go into medicine and get my Masters for Physician Assistants -- then work on my practice.”

Brannan Island boat ramp, day-use area open

Photo courtesy of California State Parks

The boat launch ramp and the nearby day-use area at the Brannan Island State Recreation Area are open for weekend use in Rio Vista.

California State Parks has announced the limited, partial reopening of Brannan Island State Recreation Area, located at 17645 State Highway 160, Rio Vista. The boat launch ramp and the nearby dayuse area are open on the weekends to the public from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Sept. 1. The other areas of the park will remain closed. Earlier this year, State Parks announced the temporary closure of Brannan Island. American Land & Leisure worked with the department to operate the State Recreation Area starting in 2013 but ended its operations on April 1, 2022. The department is seeking a new park operator.

Brannan Island is a maze of waterways through the Delta. Located northeast of San Francisco Bay, the park unit has countless islands and marshes with many wildlife habitats and opportunities for recreation, including boating and swimming. State Parks reminds visitors to recreate responsibly as COVID-19 is still present. Prior to leaving home, visitors are asked to check the status of the park units they want to visit to find out what restrictions and guidelines are in place. Having a back-up plan in case their destination is crowded is recommended. For additional guidelines and safety tips, visit parks.ca.gov/COVID19.

Police: All fireworks are illegal in county Illegal and ‘safe and sane’ types are both banned As the Fourth of July approaches, the Brentwood Police Department recently reminded residents about the dangers associated with fireworks and the use of firearms when celebrating. Contra Costa County is a “fireworks-free-zone”. The possession or use of fireworks of all types and sizes (including Safe and Sane fireworks) are banned in the county. The difference between illegal and

‘safe and sane’ fireworks is as follows: Fireworks are defined under state law in two categories– dangerous, and ‘safe and sane.’ Dangerous are always illegal except for when used by licensed operators. ‘Safe and sane’ fireworks are sold by licensed retailers from June 28-July 6 and can be used by the public, but are subject to limitations, according to the state fire marshal. ‘Safe and sane’ fireworks are sparklers, spinners, fountains and snap caps. “The Brentwood Police Department is taking a zero-tolerance approach when dealing with these violations,” the city said in a news release. “It’s important to also keep in mind dry conditions create some additional safety concerns. High weeds and water stricken lawns are extremely vulnerable to stray embers or

19

sparks caused by fireworks. Please avoid the temptation of putting yourself and your neighbors at risk.” Possession of fireworks that leave the ground or explode may be a felony and could result in fines of up to $5,000 and imprisonment, officials said. Additionally, shooting a gun into the air is against the law. Bullets fired into the air return at some point and descend at 300 to 400 feet per second, which can be dangerous because theycan penetrate roofs and cause damage to property and residents, officials said. Police statistics show that fireworks and celebratory gunfire seriously injure thousands of people annually, officials said. On July 4, the police department will be assigning additional officers to patrol residential neighborhoods and

proactively enforce fireworks violations, officials said. Authorities ask anyone who witnesses a violation to contact the 24hour dispatch center at 925-809-7911. Instead of setting off fireworks, the police department encourages people to consider free July 4th fireworks displays in nearby cities. Here is a partial list: • Antioch: Riverfront in Downtown Antioch, 2nd and G streets, 9-9:45 p.m. • Alameda County Fair in Pleasanton • Venice Island Fireworks Display in Stockton • 4th of July Celebrate Concord • Livermore Wine Country Downtown Street Festival • Stockton Delta Reflections Boat Parade • Stockton Arena • Lafayette Art & Wine Festival

Give blood, win a trip to Graceland

It would be difficult to list all the ways I’ve changed because of my hospice volunteer work. I feel more attentive and less self-absorbed, more understanding and less fearful, more accepting and less critical. I’m simply happier for having had these opportunities. ~ Sharon Iversen

junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 800-280-2832 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this internet website http:// www.qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-22-899897-CL. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the internet website. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call 800280-2832, or visit this internet website http://www.qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-22-899897-CL to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the sale is set aside for any reason, including if the Trustee is unable to convey title, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the monies paid to the Trustee. This shall be the Purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy. The purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Trustor, the Trustee, the Beneficiary, the Beneficiary’s Agent, or the Beneficiary’s Attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holders right’s against the real property only.

TAINED BY OR PROVIDED TO THIS FIRM OR THE CREDITOR WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. As required by law, you are hereby notified that a negative credit report reflecting on your credit record may be submitted to a credit report agency if you fail to fulfill the terms of your credit obligations. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (800) 758-8052 or visit this Internet Web site www.Xome.com, using the file number assigned to this case 20-24513. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. For sales conducted after January 1, 2021: NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (800) 758-8052, or visit this internet website www.Xome. com, using the file number assigned to this case 20-24513 to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.

he has been in touch with both Brentwood and Oakley police departments to set up active shooter exercises on the high school campuses over the summer. “This way, law enforcement has a good feeling for our campuses and what classrooms look like and so forth,” Volta said. “They all have keys to our facilities, and the school resource officers (SRO) have keys, so no one will be waiting outside of a door for a custodian to show up.” Volta added that all school sites in his district had been through ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) active shooter training just before the pandemic, and school resource officers were getting a refresher course this summer. “Our Heritage High School SRO just finished his certification to be an ALICE trainer, and we regularly update our safety plans for this type of thing,” Volta said. “Unfortunately, we do intruder shutdown drills as much as we do fire drills. It’s just one of the many trainings we do at the beginning of the year with our teachers.” Brentwood Brentwood Union School District Superintendent Dr. Dana Eaton said his district has a strong relationship with the Brentwood Police Department and has worked on ALICE training to help prepare students and staff on how to deal with an intruder. “We started trainings with staff in 2018 that have included multiple staff presentations along with actual role-playing scenarios, without students, where staff are

in a classroom and our police trainers enter the room,” Eaton said. “We also worked to create video lessons that are age-appropriate to help our students be prepared.” Eaton noted the district has a full-time SRO who works on campuses. Staff also promote Say Something, an anonymous early-warning reporting system that warns principals and police when a tip is received about a potentially threatening situation.. “Often, tips that come in late at night, or early in the morning are acted upon by our partners in the Brentwood Police Department prior to school starting,” Eaton said. “In almost every school shooting that has taken place, someone, or multiple people, had knowledge prior that could have prevented the tragedies that followed.” Brentwood has made physical changes to campuses over the past 10 years, adding fences, locked gates and hundreds of security cameras. There is also an internal system requiring volunteers arriving on campus to scan their driver’s license through a system that runs a background check for criminal activity. Brentwood police officers perform safety assessments of the school sites and run drills on campuses during summer break. Oakley Oakley Union Elementary School District Superintendent Jeff Palmquist sent a letter to families before school let out detailing the district’s physical and emotional safety precautions. “The Oakley Police Department continues to be an excellent partner in keeping our schools and community safe,” said

Howell. The team also did some of the flying that was captured on film, even filling in as the enemies in the film’s climactic final dogfight. The camera system used for the movie’s aerial cinematography took about a year to develop, according to Howell. The process involved trial and error, with cameras being sent by HeliNet Aviation to be tested and tweaked by the Patriots until the final product was ready to present to Paramount Pictures. Once the studio saw it, Howell and his partner, Kevin LaRosa II, were brought onto the production to lend their expertise. LaRosa is a producer and stunt pilot whose previous film credits include blockbusters such as several Marvel Studios films and war thrillers like “Zero Dark Thirty.” While not as involved in film, Howell has had a love of aviation long before partnering with Paramount Pictures to get the critically acclaimed sequel off the ground.

to the county to do a feasibility study of a potential General Plan amendment that would permit a change of zoning for the lot from commercial to mixed use. The change would allow ADC to build “workforce housing apartment units financed through the state’s low-income housing tax credit program,” according to the application submitted to the county. The county is looking for suitable sites to support additional housing development, but many Discovery Bay residents say this may not be the right spot. They contend that ADC’s plan of 170 units in the middle of a crowded end of Discovery Bay – with only one road in and out

Palmquist. “They review each site safety plan, assign officers to support our school communities, and respond when their assistance is needed. Furthermore, we work collaboratively with them to identify areas to strengthen overall safety.” Knightsen In Knightsen Elementary School District, Superintendent Harvey Yurkovich said his staff had gone through “Run, hide, defend” training just before school campuses closed down in March of 2020. He also went through ALICE training and brought those resources back to his district. “We had a presentation and went through the scenario of what our response would be up until the sheriff arrives, and they gave a presentation on what their response would be,” he said. “We discussed getting the children to a safe area and signing them out to adults.” Yurkovich noted the actual shooting is only the beginning. Staff and students who had survived such an event would need counseling and support before the campus could feel like a safe place again. Knightsen students have learned how to barricade classrooms with desks and what the procedures are for a lockdown. It’s more difficult to practice these drills, Yurkovich said, because you don’t want students walking in orderly lines if someone on campus is trying to harm them. Byron Byron Union School District Superintendent Dr. Reyes Gauna said his staff began ALICE training earlier this year. The district is also working with local fire and

“When I was 5 years old, my dad took me to see the Thunderbirds and that started it all,” said Howell of his interest in flying. “As a kid, I had a paper route. I made $21 a week and flying lessons were also $21, so it worked out.” Howell spent 28 years as a United Airlines pilot before founding the Patriot Jet Team in 1999 after acquiring an L-39 jet. Since then, the Byron-based team has continued to grow, recruiting pilots from both the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds to become the largest civilian-owned aerobatic jet team in the Western Hemisphere, according to their website. In addition to the six ship air show routine that is the core of the Patriot Jet Team, the organization also runs an educational nonprofit, provides training for commercial pilots and assists in the development and use of the CineJet camera system that was a crucial part of filming “Top Gun: Maverick.” Beyond that, Howell and his team were also involved

– would be better off in another part of town. Discovery Bay Community Services District (CSD) Board President Kevin Graves attended the Board of Supervisors meeting on June 7 to speak on behalf of the community. Also present at the meeting were several residents, and approximately 40 more had sent letters stating their objections to the board. Despite all of this, the county’s planning department is now looking at whether or not the zoning on the lot should be changed. The CSD board sent a formal letter to the Board of Supervisors earlier this month officially objecting to the site of the proposed development. Graves noted the

police services for further support. “Since the Uvalde incident, our local Sheriff’s department has placed a deputy at each school during the morning hours to offer support and be a presence on our campuses,” Gauna said. “We are thankful for this support. Our district takes the safety of our students and staff very seriously and want to ensure that all appropriate measures are being taken to ensure that.” Among police agencies, Lt. Mark Johnson, Delta Station Commander for the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office, said his officers do their best to familiarize themselves with local school campuses and meet kids under non-stressful circumstances. “We do ‘recess with a cop’ at the local schools, and that gives us a familiarity with the campuses, so we know where things are and what doors are locked,” Johnson said. “Our deputies carry active shooter kits with ballistic helmets and heavy vests, and they can put that on very quickly and go in when necessary.” Johnson said that active shooter situations in schools are handled the same way they are anywhere else. “We try to get there as soon as possible and the first officer that gets there goes in,” he said. “We are not waiting, we are not setting up a perimeter. We are going in. A lot of these active shooters, once law enforcement gets on scene, either commit suicide, give up or turn their attention on us, so that’s good, because we want to get their attention off the victims.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net

in getting the actors prepared for takeoff, training them to be able to confidently pilot the aircrafts while also preparing their bodies for the physical toll of high-speed flight, he said. Howell estimated he spent close to 50 hours flying with Cruise to get the actor certified to fly on his own. Cruise even ended up shooting a segment for “The Late Late Show with James Corden” to promote the film where he can be seen piloting one of the Patriot Jet Team aircrafts with the late-night host along for the ride. Their work on “Top Gun: Maverick” is just the beginning of the Patriot Jet Team’s partnership with both Cruise and actor Glen Powell, who plays another of the film’s main characters. Powell’s next film, “Devotion,” is the true story of two fighter pilots during the Korean War and features support from the Patriot Jet Team and use of the CineJet camera system. The same goes for Cruise’s next “Mission: Impossible” film. To comment, visit www.thepress.net

town is concerned about every aspect of the project. Though this step was administrative, he was glad to see the community represent itself to the county. “We want to thank the community for expressing their opinions to the Board of Supervisors in such a profound manner that this was actually put onto the agenda instead of being placed in the consent items,” Graves said. “We have done everything we can do to inform the public of every step along the way, and will continue to monitor the situation and represent the concerns of the community, which we agree with.” Graves also noted the town has asked Burgis to hold a town hall meeting in Dis-

covery Bay to give residents a chance to voice their concerns to her personally. Tara Burman lives in Discovery Bay and said she didn’t see how the town could support 170 new homes in that location. “It doesn’t make sense,” said Burman. “There is one way in and one way out and you want to add 300-plus cars to traffic that is already a mess? I don’t think the schools can support it, I don’t think our businesses can support it … it will be a traffic jam, a nightmare for the schools, there’s just too much going on.” To contact Burgis’s office, call 925655-2330 or visit www.contracosta. ca.gov/6449/Diane-Burgis.
