Violators A love of learning prompt complaints

Chamber names top nonprofit by Dawnmarie Fehr Correspondent

DISCOVERY BAY Responding to complaints from residents, a team of six officers from Contra Costa County Code Enforcement swept into the Town of Discovery Bay last month and issued hundreds of notices for county ordinance violations. There also were complaints about the improper storage of boats, trailers and recreational vehicles (RV), the code enforcement team issued a notice to comply to 325 residents. “When we issue the notice to comply, it allows the property owner or the tenant to come into compliance by either removing the boat or RV from the driveway; screening the boat behind a fence or taking it to an (offsite) storage place to store it there,” said Joe Losado, managing director of county see Code page 22

arin Elementary School fifth-graders Elin Cagadoc and Aliah Carrera, and first-grader Greyson Cagadoc, recently used their artistic skills to showcase their love of in-person learning after a year of remote instruction forced by the COVID-19 pandemic. “Words cannot express how much the kids love and appreciate being in school and enjoying the ability to interact with their classmates and teachers again in person,” the parents said in a joint press release. “The kids wanted to express their appreciation in a big and artistic way, taking five hours to complete the chalk art at the entry of Garin Elementary Office for teachers and To view a video, visit www.thepress.net/multimedia. staff to see.”

Young couple embraces love in face of illness by Dawnmarie Fehr Correspondent

REGIONAL A young East County couple is holding onto love for as long as they can. Isabella Cristobal, 20, and Sergio Soto, 20, married last month in San Francisco, despite a terminal diagnosis for Soto of leukemia earlier this year. Soto has been battling Myelodysplastic Syndrome – a severe, chronic syndrome usually found in people over the age of 65 – since he was 15. Myelodysplastic Syndrome often progresses into acute myeloid leukemia, as it did in Soto’s case. Over the past five years, he has undergone three bone marrow transBusiness.................................14 Calendar................................16

plants and multiple chemotherapy treatments, but at this point, the doctors have given him only weeks to live. “Unfortunately, a few weeks ago, we found out the leukemia had spread to his jaw, head, neck, spine, and joints, which meant it was terminal,” said Cristobal. “Thus the grim diagnosis.” The couple met at a mutual friend’s quinceanera in 2016, shortly before Soto’s original diagnosis. Cristobal said they began dating and Soto changed her perspective on life. “Sergio was a very outgoing guy,” said Cristobal. “And at 15, see Couple page 22

BRENTWOOD Working Wonders has been named the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce’s Nonprofit of the Year for 2020. Founded in 2016 by Brentwood residents Matt Schwab and Emil Geddes, the organization’s mission is to give adults with disabilities choices about where they live, work and play. Working Wonders provides sustainable opportunities to improve their clients’ lives, including work-related programs and opportunities for personal growth, independence and social interaction. Schwab said he and his fellow board members are inspired by the experiences of their clients and their clients’ family members. “We have a good board and a really good projection for the future,” said Schwab. “We feel everyone in the community has value, and those who may have to overcome a little more can still count. They go to movies and restaurants and have jobs and families and deserve opportunities to thrive. Our role is to move that along, help these folks achieve their goals.” Working Wonders has received community support, not just from individuals but from the Chamber and the Rotary Club of Brentwood as well. Chamber president Gerald Johnson said the organization will be highlighted at the chamber’s upcoming “Celebrating Brentwood” dinner on Oct. 21. “Working Wonders is a terrific young organization whose mission is to assist adults with disabilities in our community,” Johnson said.

How pet adoptions cope with COVID-19 Area agencies adjust visits; some help the animals

Antioch Animal Services Manager George Harding feeds treats to dogs in quarantine at the city’s shelter.

by Cassie Dickman Correspondent

George Harding noted the silence in the background during a recent phone interview from the Antioch Animal Services shelter. “If you can hear, it’s, like, perfectly quiet right now,” he said. Harding, who manages the shelter, credits the calm to Animal Services implementing an exclusive appointment-only adoption system. For much of the COVID-19 pandemic, Harding says the shelter was largely off limits to the drop-in style lookie-looing that most people had become accustomed to at animal shelters before COVID-19. Gov. Gavin Newsom enacted a statewide stay-at-home order in March 2020 to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, shutting down nearly all nonessential face-to-face contact and services for businesses, residents and state agencies. Shelters and other adoption organizations throughout the state and locally were forced to restructure adoption and other services to mandates that didn’t allow people to view animals in person. Antioch Animal Services resorted to online showings and pet adoption website listings for those interested in an animal from the city shelter, Harding said. Anyone serious about wanting a specific dog or cat could then

make an appointment to come meet their potential future pet in an outside setting. The shelter eventually moved adoption appointments inside as the pandemic dragged on, following statewide COVID-19 protocols such as requiring face masks, Harding said. California gradually lifted its stay-athome order over the last year, largely doing away with many of its remaining COVID-19 restrictions in June. In the beginning of July, Harding said the shelter was once again reopened for drop-in viewing. But that didn’t last long. It took less than a week for Animal Services to realize a structured schedule was best for the animals, Harding said. While the lobby remains open to the

public, many of the shelter’s services, such as adoptions and animal licensing, require an appointment, Harding said. It has reduced both wait times for the public and stress on the shelter’s animals. He said that many shelters have also made the decision to permanently switch to appointment-only adoptions. “The animals aren’t constantly stirred up with people poking at them and walking through and all that kind of stuff,” Harding said. “It’s made a huge difference.” The pandemic has also forced other local organizations to change the way pet adoptions are conducted. Nancy Newlin is the cat manager for Homeless Animals Lifeline Organization

(HALO). The East Contra Costa Countybased nonprofit was founded in 2001 and relies on a network of animal foster volunteers in Discovery Bay, Antioch and Brentwood to take care of its dogs and cats before they are adopted. For a time, HALO fosters were forced to get creative during the pandemic in order to show animals to potential adopters, Newlin said, such as inviting people to the front porch or yard of their home or at a park. “We adopt out of our home all the time. We didn’t used to do that. I mean, we would do that, but not so much,” Newlin said. “But with the pandemic it was like, well, how are we going to get these kittens out?” The organization has since moved back to showing animals three days a week at Pet Food Express on Lone Tree Way in Antioch, Newlin said. Animals up for adoption can also be viewed online. Erin Thompson, marketing manager for Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF), says the organization was forced to stop drop-in adoptions at its Walnut Creekbased facility. The nonprofit cat and dog rescue has also temporarily done away with adoptions at pet stores and other community events due to COVID-19. ARF was founded in 1991 by La Russa and his wife to rescue dogs and cats from overcrowded municipal shelters and strengthen the human-animal bond for children, seniors, veterans, and people in need, according to see Adoption page 15

Grant to help Antioch Police Dept. expand traffic enforcement by Jake Menez Staff Writer

The Antioch Police Department will implement a new traffic services program in an effort to deter illegal driving behaviors thanks to a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS). The $60,000 grant — made available to OTS by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration — is expected to fund expanded traffic enforcement measures through September 2022. These expanded measures will include DUI checkpoints, community education presentations and officer training for dif-

ferent field sobriety tests, according to a press release. Additional focus will be put on violations considered to be most responsible for crashes, such as speeding, improper turning and failure to yield or stop in accordance with signage. The press release did not say when these measures would start. “Impairment, speeding and other dangerous driving behaviors jeopardize the safety of other people on the road,” Sgt. Ted Chang said in the release. “This funding allows us to provide necessary traffic enforcement measures with the goal of reducing serious injury and fatal crashes on our roads.”

A rough landing A man sustained minor injuries when his ultralight aircraft came down in a field near Orwood Resort in Brentwood on Oct. 3. The unidentified man, who declined ambulance transportation to the hospital after the incident, told officials on the scene that his aircraft had lost power, causing it to come down in a field near 4451 Orwood Road shortly before 10:35 a.m. The Experimental Aircraft Association describes ultralight vehicles as fun flying aircraft intended to carry a person into the sky to enjoy flight in a safe and affordable manner.

Police arrest carjacking suspect at John Muir Medical Center by Jake Menez Staff Writer

BRENTWOOD Police arrested a carjacking suspect at the John Muir Health facility off of Balfour Road in Brentwood last week after the suspect fled into the building. At 11:45 a.m. on Sept. 30, Antioch police received an alert regarding a stolen vehicle on Highway 4, according to Lt. Joe Donleavy. The vehicle was stolen in what police say was an armed carjacking out of Oakland. Antioch police pursued the suspect into Brentwood, where

he abandoned the vehicle and fled into John Muir Medical Center before being apprehended hiding in the facility’s restroom. There were no reported injuries during the incident. Police later identified the suspect as a 17-year-old male, who has been turned over to the Oakland Police Department. A vehicle not involved in the incident was sideswiped by the stolen vehicle on Laurel Road in Oakley during the pursuit. No information regarding the status of the driver was made available.

Rotary brew fest to raise funds for polio eradication Pints for Polio scheduled for Oct. 24

tive – a public-private partnership led by national governments, the World Health Organization, Rotary International, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and others. “Until poliovirus transmission is interrupted in these countries, all countries remain at risk of importation of polio, especially vulnerable countries with weak public health and immunization services and travel or trade links to endemic countries.” Rotary International, a global charitable network of 1.2 million members, has been committed to the eradication of polio for 35 years. To purchase tickets to the fundraiser, visit: https://bit.ly/3hzo7o0. For more information, call Wulff at 530-448-6806.

Polio, short for poliomyelitis, a highly infectious disease that most commonly affects children younger than 5, is caused by a virus invading the nervous system, causing total paralysis in a matter of hours. Although the launch of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative in 1988 has led to a 99.9% drop in worldwide cases, complete eradication of the disease is imperative, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). The WHO estimates that without eradication, as many as 200,000 new cases could occur around the world each year within 10 years. “Polio remains endemic in two countries – Afghanistan and Pakistan,” reads a statement from the Global Polio Eradication Initia-

Freddie Mac also has their own version of this type of loan under the “CHOICE” umbrella of remodel and rehab loans. They have their main loan called “CHOICERenovation” plus a new one called “CHOICEReno eXPress” for smaller projects. The CHOICE loans appear to have a little more flexibility to them as you don’t have to occupy the property and there may be a little less paperwork and oversight in the construction process, but your mileage may vary! Don’t get too caught up in the exact details as these programs change all the time. The takeway from this article is that if you want to buy a home that needs some work, or you want to do some work to your existing options, call your favorite lender first because you probably have more options than you thought!

If you want to remodel your home, or buy a fixer-upper property, but you are short of cash to make that happen, there are quite a few lending options for you. Most of these programs are available for a home you already own or are considering buying. I don’t have space to go into all the details of every loan, but I wanted to hit some of the highlights. Check with your preferred lender for more details specific to your situation. FHA has a loan called a “203K Rehabilitation Loan.” You can do some pretty major construction with this loan. The funds are released to you as the work progresses, so it works similar to a “construction loan.” There is some paperwork and hassle to the process, but it can be well worth it. For smaller projects of $35,000 and below, there is the “Limited 203K” loan that is simpler and can used for things as mundane as carpet and paint. FNMA has something called the “HomeStyle Renovation Loan” which can be used for remodeling, rehab or even for energyefficiency improvements.

Dining out safely and confidently has long been a coveted component of getting back to normal life after the pandemic. In spring of 2021, mask mandates were lifted in most areas and it seemed like dining out and other activities were returning. However, new variants of the virus and breakthrough infections have added to uncertainty and raised some familiar questions about the safety of dining out, particularly with unvaccinated children. Dining out with unvaccinated children requires parents to carefully assess risk and make decisions that keep their children as safe as possible. Though COVID-19 vaccines are now available to people ages 12 and older, children younger than 12 remain ineligible for vaccination. As a result, families may once again be wondering how to navigate going out. Epidemiologists and other public health experts agree that there is no such thing as zero risk when dining out. Families must conduct their own risk assessment before venturing out with unvaccinated people. The following tips can help parents assess that risk so they can make the safest, most informed decisions possible.

• Check virus infection rates. Study the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention risk levels for areas where you intend to dine out. This information is free and can provide valuable insight as to the safety of a given area. • Opt for outdoor seating. It’s generally safer to dine outdoors than indoors. According to Saskia Popescu, an infectious disease epidemiologist and assistant professor at George Mason University, when dining indoors, people are eating and drinking without masks on. They don’t know other people’s vaccine status and they are there for prolonged periods of time, during which virus particles could be circulating through the air. Virus particles are dispersed outdoors more easily than in a crowded interior space. • Dine at off-peak hours. If you must eat indoors due to weather or other circumstances, it may be better to dine during off-peak hours when the restaurant is largely unoccupied. This reduces the risk of contact with other people. • Wear masks as much as possible. Have unvaccinated children wear masks while walking through the restaurant and other crowded areas. They can pull down masks to eat and then put them back on when they finish eating. – Courtesy of Metro Creative Services

Celebrating National Newspaper Week with you, our readers, in mind The 81st annual National Newspaper Week runs this week from Oct. 3-9. While these seven days are meant to recognize the services of newspapers and their employees ditorial across North America, we at The Press would like to turn the attention back to you, our readers, just as we always do in our weekly newspaper and our daily website,

E

ThePress.net and app. We hope that since the launch of our product in 1999, we have established ourselves as a trusted, timely outlet for community news and information that appeals to every segment of the diverse East County population. Our mission is, and will continue to be, to provide timely, accurate information straight from the community’s foremost information sources and community leaders. In an age in which social media,

blogs and a slew of other news outlets feeding you potentially unverified information have joined the world of traditional news sources, and in which the truth is often hard to find, we know we may not always be the first to publish a story. But in the interim, you can feel assured that we are thoroughly verifying our information so that what you read here is accurate, fair and balanced. As we celebrate National Newspaper Week, we want to continue to evolve

to meet the needs of our changing community. To do so, we want your help. We have a number of questions for you, and we invite you to engage with us. Send us your letters (paper or online) to help us better serve you. And finally, a big, heartfelt thankyou to every one of our valued online and print subscribers for helping us continue to be the preeminent information source for East County. It is a pleasure to serve you. Our questions for you: • How can we better serve you? • Do you feel we deliver accurate, fair and balanced news? Why or why not? • How can we be more relevant to you? We look forward to your responses. Submit a comment to editor@ brentwoodpress.com. Lets continue this conversation. Kyle Szymanski Editor Greg Robinson Publisher

Liberty wrestler earns high acclaim by Michael Dixon Correspondent

When the high school wrestling season gets underway, Liberty’s team will be able to tout something that not many schools can -- the top-ranked wrestler in the country. USA Wrestling recently came out with its high school rankings. In them, Samantha Calkins, a senior for the Lions, was ranked as the top wrestler in her weight class (200 pounds). The rankings weren’t exactly a surprise to Calkins. In July, she finished first at the U.S. Marine Corps 16U & Junior Nationals wrestling tournament in Fargo, ND. Calkins defeated Riley Dempewolf from Lafayette, Ind. in the final. The USA Wrestling rankings followed those results, with Dempewolf coming in at No. 2 and Calkins at No. 1. “I was expecting to be first, but with rankings, you never really know,” Calkins said. “It was kind of surreal. I’m a hometown wrestler. After all the hard work of countless hours and extra practices, it kind of paid off. It still doesn’t feel real, though. I still just feel like a random wrestler from Brentwood.”

Press file photo

Samantha Calkins, a senior for the Lions, is ranked as the top wrestler in the country in the 200-pound weight class. Beyond being ranked No. 1 in her weight class, Calkins was also ranked as the No. 16 pound-for-pound wrestler.

Top pound-for-pound honors are generally reserved for wrestlers in the lower weight classes and for the most

part, these rankings were no different. Calkins and Dempewolf (who was No. 23) were the only wrestlers at 200 pounds in the top 25. Michigan’s Eliana Bommarito (No. 12) was the only wrestler at a heavier weight class (225 pounds) in the top 25 and Michigan’s Sabriana Nauss (180 pounds) was the only other wrestler in the top 25 at more than 164 pounds. One potential side effect of being ranked so high is that it will make potential opponents even more aware of Calkins and perhaps even train harder for their matches with her.  Calkins said she is aware of that and said that the work she’s put in has made her ready for any extra challenges that may come up.  “I think I’m prepared for it,” she said. “It’s what I’ve been working for for the past eight years and I have this spot for a reason. So I’m not going to give it up too easily.” Calkins thanked a number of people for their help in achieving the number 1 ranking. One is Liberty coach Alex Encarnacion-Strand, who has been working with her since freshman year and, as see Wrestling page 12

Antioch softball player awarded scholarship Junior Giants program plays big part in girl’s life by Jake Menez Staff Writer

Photo courtesy of Rosalyn Zermeno

Rosalyn Zermeno, 13, received a scholarship from the Giants Community Fund.

Antioch resident Rosalyn Zermeno has been thrown her fair share of curveballs both on and off the softball field in the past year, but that has not stopped her from swinging for the fences. The past year has presented 13-year-old Rosalyn and her family with no shortage of challenges. At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, her mother entered labor early and lost her baby at birth. Shortly after, Rosalyn’s father lost his job. These hardships combined with the challenges associated with the pandemic — particularly adjusting to remote learning at school — had Rosalyn feeling discouraged until she found out she had been recognized for her efforts on the softball field. Rosalyn is one of the athletes chosen by the Giants Community Fund as a 2021 recipient of the Harmon and Sue Burns Scholarship. The annual $5,000 scholarship is awarded by the organization to 10 athletes in the Junior Giants, a free program that offers noncompetitive coed baseball and softball leagues across Northern and Central California as well

as Oregon and Nevada for kids ages 4 through 13. Rosalyn is the second area player to be chosen for the scholarship. “I just didn’t think I was good enough to do anything,” Rosalyn said. “When I got that call, that brought my spirits up. I have a lot of hope in myself now.” The Giants Community Fund is a nonprofit community outreach organization by the San Francisco Giants baseball team that uses baseball and softball as outlets for underserved youth in order to promote education, health and positive character development, according to its website. The organization has been making a difference in the lives of children since 1991 through various programs and grants, such as the Harmon and Sue Burns Scholarship. All Junior Giants entering eighth grade are invited to apply for the scholarship. “With the support of the Antioch Junior Giants League, Rosalyn has been able to lean on her team and passion for softball during troubling times,” said Becca Campbell, a volunteer with the organization’s Antioch league. “ Rosalyn [has been] able to demonstrate her determination to never give up when she faced the challenge of learning softball for the very first time.” Junior Giants has been a part of Rosalyn’s life since she was eight years old. She has come to view her teammates as a support system and the league as a chance to

“ I just didn’t think I was good enough to do anything. When I got that call, that brought my spirits up. I have a lot of hope in myself now.

Rosalyn Zermeno develop skills other than hitting and catching, such as respect and kindness — skills she says are just as important off the field. “Baseball or softball is not just a sport. It’s also to make friends, and kindness. It’s not just being competitive,” she said. Rosalyn is excited about a number of opportunities on the horizon for her. She is looking forward to joining a fall team in order to continue her passion for softball as she graduates from the Junior Giants program while also giving back to the program as a mentor to younger children starting out in it. “My whole life started because of Junior Giants and I really appreciate that,” Rosalyn said. “I want to let kids know how much fun it is, like it was for me, to play in Junior Giants.” For more information on the Junior Giants Program, visit www.jrgiants.org.

oroptimist International of Antioch had its annual golf tournament on Saturday, Sept. 25, at Lone Tree Golf & Event Center. Calvin Waldrup was the lucky participant that got a chance at a million-dollar hole-in-one. Although he did not make the shot, it was exciting to watch according to Gina Moore of Soroptomist International. They look forward to next year’s tournament on Saturday, June 25.

Wrestling from page 11 Calkins put it, holding her accountable. She also thanked her parents, David and Jackie, as well her brother and training partner, David and longtime Lions coach, Greg Chappel. Calkins additionally expressed gratitude to her Liberty teammates. “They’re the best,” she said. “We might not be known

as the greatest wrestling school but they’re always there for me, backing me up, supporting me and cheering me on.” The high ranking hasn’t done much to change Calkins’ expectations for her senior season. A big reason for that is the expectations were already extremely high. “They’re still the same,” Calkins said. “I’ve got to go through state first. Hopefully we can win that. After

They’re the same goals.” That was the opinion shared by her coach. “This is a well deserved honor, but the job isn’t finished yet,” he said. “We are here to earn the No. 1 position when nationals come around again, and prove she is truly the No. 1 person.”

COMMUNITY cation process being more accessible. On the other hand, Antioch Animal Services adoptions have remained steady since the pandemic began, Harding said. The shelter also saw a decrease in the number of animals it housed last year, though numbers began going up again this spring. During the earlier part of the pandemic, shelters weren’t accepting animals due to the statewide shelter-in-place order, Harding said. Shelters were forced to change how they operate, encouraging and helping people to use other tools for things like finding owners of lost pets, such as using social media or putting up fliers in their neighborhood, rather than bringing an animal into the shelter. But he says that’s changed since people have started physically going back to work. “They don’t have the extra time and they’re not at home, where they can just watch the animal,” Harding said. Both Antioch Animal Services and ARF say that they haven’t had an increase in animals being returned or surrendered due to the pandemic as restrictions loosen. Thompson of ARF, said that pets adopted during the pandemic have been less likely to be returned. “A lot of people have feared that as people return to work, are they going to return the animals they adopted when they were working from home,” Thomspon said. “We’ve not seen that to be the case at all.” But she added that could change after the state eviction moratorium ends. “Because if people can’t find housing that will allow them to have their animal, sometimes people are forced to make very difficult choices,” Thompson said.

Moeller, Moeller Estate Law It may be difficult to think about today, but there will come a time when you or a loved one will not be able to make financial or medical decisions for themselves. Physical or mental challenges may inhibit your ability to manage your own finances or health care decisions. Therefore, we strongly recommend that anybody over the age of 18 set up a Power of Attorney. Once you become an adult, nobody else is legally allowed to make decisions on your behalf or talk to doctors about your medical condition. To cover important issues, you will need two separate Power of Attorney documents. One to address health care matters and another to cover financial matters. This article addresses financial powers of attorney. Everyone with financial assets should consider setting up a financial Power of Attorney. Even if you are single and are not a homeowner, having a Power of Attorney in place enables someone you trust to control the use of your financial assets to manage your care if something happens to you.

• Keep in original containers • Pack in a sturdy box or tub with newspaper • Transport a maximum of 15 gallons or 125 pounds • When you arrive – stay in your car! • Must be in your trunk, hatch back or truck bed.

Household HazardousWaste Tips for Transporting Your Waste

If you’re married and share joint financial accounts with your spouse, you still need to set up a Power of Attorney. In fact, it can be even more crucial. Generally, financial institutions will not allow one of the owners to simply withdraw all the money or close an account. They want both people or someone who has Power of Attorney. Also, when dealing with real estate, you always have to have both people involved. Even if they have no bank account and their only asset is the house, you need a financial Power of Attorney. If you have questions concerning your existing estate plan or setting up an estate plan, please contact Todd W. Moeller at (925) 301-8840 or www.Todd@ MoellerEstateLaw.com.

its website. ARF also performs spaying and neutering to combat pet overpopulation and provides community outreach and education. The organization, which uses its own shelter as well as fosters to care for its animals, conducts the adoption process primarily through its website, where potential adopters can view available animals and fill out applications, Thompson said. In-person appointments to meet an animal are made once the application process is complete. “Our efforts are focused now on giving our adopters the best possible experience during their appointments,” Thompson said. Both ARF and HALO say adoption interest and numbers increased during 2020. HALO saw 330 cats adopted last year, which Newlin said “definitely was up” over recent prior years. The organization, whose cat side is currently more active, didn’t see any significant increases in dog adoptions. Before the pandemic, ARF typically averaged 100-150 adoption inquiries each week, Thompson said. That number has increased and remained steady at about 200250 a week since the organization switched to an online adoption process during the pandemic after previously conducting adoptions primarily in person. “We had a few extraordinary weeks at the height of interest during the pandemic. Once we received 900 adoption inquiries for a litter of eight adorable puppies within just a few days,” Thompson said. But she also added that the overall increase could likely be due to many other factors rather than just the pandemic, such as the online appli-

Michelle Renee Wright

Dante Ortiz & Spenser Menez Wedding

Photo by DeNoise Studios

Dante Ortiz and Spenser Menez wed on the evening of Sept. 19, 2021, with an intimate ceremony in Castro Valley surrounded by family and friends. The couple met at college in 2018 and were engaged the following year. Both were eager to finally walk down the aisle after their 2020 wedding was postponed by the pandemic. They live in Brentwood with an assortment of pets.

May 16, 1977 – September 15, 2021 On September 15, 2021, Michelle Wright, a 16-year resident of Brentwood, CA, passed away at the age of 44, with her husband, Bernard, by her side. Michelle was born to parents Rodney William Kennedy and Annette Marie Guassardo. She attended Mt Diablo Elementary, in Clayton, Los Cerros Middle School and Monte Vista High School in Danville graduating in 1995. Soon after graduation, Michelle joined the U.S. Army as a Reservist from 1995 to 2003, serving in the 795th Military Police Battalion. She attended the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in San Francisco graduating in 2006 and soon began a career drafting with SDG Architecture in Brentwood until being diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer in 2018. Michelle met her husband, Bernard Wright, in 1999. They married in 2007. Their lovely daughter, Sydney, was born in 2009. Michelle became very active in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community, spearheading a popular annual Easter Egg hunt for kids with hearing loss, until COVID hit in 2020. Upon Michelle’s diagnosis with cancer, she became active in the Kaleidoscope Cancer Connection Group in Byron and was instrumental in helping them design and build a meditation garden at their location. Michelle is survived by her loving husband, Bernard, and daughter Sidney Wright, her father Rod (Delanna) Kennedy, sisters Debbie (Clay) Reed and Jennifer (Satish) Chand. She is also survived by nieces and nephews: Dakota and Sa-

vanna Reed, Emma, Olivia, and Nicholas Chand. She is loved and missed by aunts, uncles, cousins and numerous relatives and friends on both sides of the family. She is preceded in death by her mother, Annette Kennedy. Everyone who knew Michelle loved her smile, her sense of humor, her creative and fun nature and her caring and loving soul. She gave tirelessly to others and will be desperately missed by all who knew her. Michelle’s friends and family are invited to attend her Celebration of Life on Oct. 16, at 2:30 p.m. at the Kaleidoscope Garden, 14671 Byron Highway, Byron. Parking at the facility is extremely limited, so plan to carpool if possible. Masks are required. In lieu of flowers, consider a donation to Kaleidoscope Cancer Connection at https://www.kaleidoscopehope.org.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING Notice is hereby given that the Planning Commission of the City of Brentwood will, at 7:00 p.m. or as soon thereafter as the normal course of business permits on October 19, 2021, hold a public hearing to consider the following application: Recommendation to the City Council regarding a rezone (RZ 21-006) to (1) repeal the temporary urgency ordinance adopted by the City Council on September 21, 2021, that added Chapter 17.635 (“Emergency Medical and Fire Protection Service Funding”) to the City of Brentwood Municipal Code, and (2) add Chapter 17.635 (“Emergency Medical and Fire Protection Service Funding”) and Chapter 17.636 (“City Community Facilities District Service Funding”) to the Municipal Code as non-urgency ordinances. These newly added Chapters will apply city-wide. This Rezone is adopted in the exercise of the City’s authority under the California Constitution, article XI, section 7 and the California Planning and Zoning Law, Government Code section 65000, et seq. It is exempt from review under CEQA because it has no potential to result in either a direct physical change in the environment or a reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment, per 14 CCR §15061(b)(3). Further, the Rezone is also exempt because it does not apply to any particular development project at this time, and it is thus speculative to evaluate any such future project in the context of consideration of this Rezone. Applicant: City of Brentwood Further information may be obtained from Planning Manager Erik Nolthenius [(925) 516-5137 or enolthenius@brentwoodca. gov] in the Community Development Department of the City of Brentwood, 150 City Park Way, Brentwood, California 94513.

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.

code enforcement. “They have 10 days to do that. If they don’t do that after 10 days, then we can go out and issue administrative fines. Our whole goal is to gain voluntary compliance. If somebody calls up and says they need an additional 10 days, we generally allow that.” In 2002, the county updated its Boat and Trailer Ordinance to require that vessels, trailers and RVs be hidden from view from a public roadway. The ordinance requires that boats – along with RVs, mobile homes and travel trailers of any type – be kept in a garage or moved to a side yard behind a fence or foliage that hides a minimum of 90% of the boat, trailer or RV from view. According to the county, covering the vehicle with a tarp or plastic sheeting is not considered adequate covering. The code also prohibits the use of these vehicles for living or sleeping.

The county also notes that compliance with this ordinance can rarely be achieved when the vehicle or vessel is in the front of a driveway. “We support the county’s efforts in enforcing the ordinance because it eliminates blight, it frees up parking and it has everybody playing by the same set of rules,” said Town Manager Dina Breitstein. District 3 Supervisor Diane Burgis concurred: “Thank you to Discovery Bay residents for making our office aware of the extent of the problem and to Contra Costa County Code Enforcement for taking quick action.” While the sweep was not part of a regularly scheduled initiative, Losado said that regular enforcement minimizes violations. “It’s becoming routine,” Losado said. “The routine is caused by receiving multiple complaints from citizens and from the Town of Discovery Bay saying ‘It’s getting out of control. Can you come out and do a

I didn’t see a sick person, I saw a very positive and confident man that kept moving forward despite the pains, despite the cancer.” Soto and Cristobal both graduated from the Liberty High School District, Cristobal from Liberty High School and Soto from La Paloma High School. Soto is now a prenursing student at San Francisco State University and hopes to continue her studies through medical school. She spends much of her time caring for Soto. “We honestly felt like we were already married with

“They have only been at it for five years, and, yet, they are so effective. As the President of the Chamber, I am pleased to highlight their organization as they continue to lift up so many in the Brentwood area.” Schwab said he was inspired to begin something for special-needs adults by his son, who had been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. He said there are many resources for students who are still in school, but once they graduate from high school, there is a significant void of services. “I was concerned about his future and having the opportunities to maximize his potential in life,” Schwab said. “Emil, being on the school board and having a rich history in the community, he could see a need as well.” The pair visited Opportunity Village in

sweep again?’ It seems like if we do it once a year, it seems to keep it in control.” Once a notice to comply has been issued, a code enforcement officer will revisit the location to determine if the property owner or tenant has remedied the violation. A note to violation can be issued if the condition has not been corrected. It warns that a fine will be issued if the violation is not immediately corrected. The fine can be up to $4,300. “In my 19 years of doing this, I don’t think we’ve ever had to fine somebody,” Losado said. “When we issue that note to violation, they have 10 days to correct it. In that 10 days I have not seen somebody not correct it. Once they see the potential fine, they have the reaction, ‘Wow. I need to make this a priority in my life.’ And they move it.” The county ordinance applies only to private property. Vehicles left on public property, like the street in front of a home,

all the caregiving things I do for him, which was out of the “girlfriend” title,” said Cristobal. “But we really wanted to have a wedding ceremony, because that was the first time our family and friends came together to witness our love and life together.” Because the couple has been dealing with Soto’s health issues since they met, Cristobal said they haven’t had time to experience normal relationship milestones. They are currently being provided housing through Family House Mission in San Francisco, allowing them to focus their time on each other and do some of the things they have always wanted to do. They even planned a trip to Anaheim, which will include

Nevada, where adults with special needs are provided with vocational training, employment, day habilitation and social recreation. They were inspired and decided to bring a slice of what they saw back to Brentwood. “We started it and it started small, but we focus on three points of emphasis: health and fitness, the arts, and developing work skills,” Schwab said. “From there, we spawn other things like teamwork, personal growth and learning to believe in yourself and all the things that come from that.” The nonprofit’s initial success has even prompted a location change to gain more space. The group will soon move into its new home in eastern Brentwood with space for all its programs. Schwab’s wife, Christine Schwab, works as an administrator in Working Wonders. She

are the responsibility of the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office. According to Losado, some violators will attempt to skirt the county’s notice to comply by moving an improperly stored vehicle to the street. Doing so technically resolves the county’s ordinance violation as it’s no longer stored on private property. However, the county also limits parking in the same spot to 72 hours, and local homeowners association by-laws may impose stricter limits. A vehicle left in the same spot for more than 72 hours can receive a warning, be cited or be towed. “Unfortunately, we do run into people (who say), ‘I’ll put it on the street and it becomes the sheriff’s jurisdiction,’” Losado explained. “Before we did our sweep, the sheriff’s office was informed that we (were going) to do this, so they’re prepared for people to move them out and play their game. Fortunately, the percentage of people that do that is very small.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net

Soto’s first experience on an airplane. Cristobal said she hopes people who hear their story learn to appreciate the time they have. “We hope that people who are going through the same or similar situation see our story and get the reassurance and hope they need,” she said. “That they know they’re not alone. That just because you have a life-threatening illness doesn’t mean you can’t do the things you want.

said though COVID-19 hurt the programming, most services are once again operational. “We spent this past year, like many businesses, having to reinvent our service,” she said. “For over a year, we met up with our clients on Zoom. We all learned to use technology better, and actually got to know everyone in a different way, playing games, doing fitness and yoga activities, and sharing YouTube videos on various types of work skills. In June of this year, we started meeting in person again, twice a week, and still doing Zoom activities too.” This month, the Schwabs and the rest of Working Wonders will focus on opening their new location, preparing the space for fitness and art activities, educational computers and other programming.

“Brentwood has been a welcoming place for our program from the moment we opened our doors,” Christine Schwab said. “We love our art teachers, pottery studios, yoga and fitness teachers, who are all local business people. We’ve delivered sandwiches to schools, participated in community events, handed out play programs and volunteered for the library and thrift store.” For more information on Working Wonders, call 510-566-2835 or visit their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ LetsWorkWonders or their website at https:// www.letsworkwonders.org/.
