Welcome! 2016

East County’s Storied Past More than 100 years ago, Native Americans called the East County area home. The Bay Miwok and Yokut Indians preceded Spanish explorer Pedro Fages, who in 1772 led the first European parties through the area. More than a century passed before European settlers arrived in the area to put down roots. ANTIOCH On Sept. 16, 1850, the first settlers arrived at the foot of what is now F Street in Antioch. The town was named after the ancient biblical city in Syria. The town incorporated in February of 1872 with a population of only 600. The year 1876 saw the introduction of a narrow-gauge railway between Antioch and the mining town of Stewartsville six miles to the south, at the site of today’s Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve. In 1851, Antioch got its first

school, provided by a ship owner who donated the galley of his beached vessel to serve as a school building. Some of Antioch’s early businesses included brick kilns, coal mining, a copper smelter, several potteries and a distillery. By the early 1900s, Antioch was still only about 700 residents strong, but the population began to skyrocket in the 1920s with the construction of the Antioch Bridge and Fulton Shipyards. During World War II, 27 vessels were built in Antioch for the U.S. Navy. By 1970, Antioch had grown to 28,500 residents. Built on inexpensive land, residential development further increased the citizenry to an estimated 47,000 by the mid 1980s. Today the population tops 100,000. BRENTWOOD One of the first pioneers to settle

in the Brentwood area was a doctor named John Marsh, who built a stately mansion out of stone, which still stands today on Marsh Creek Road. Marsh was murdered in 1856 before he ever moved into the house. The name Brentwood is believed to have come from the Marsh family’s hometown of Brentwood, England. Development of the city was hastened by the discovery of coal in the Mt. Diablo foothills. By 1874, the first structures were popping up on Oak Street. Fertile soils and the coming of the railroad in 1890 helped make the area the largest shipping point for grain between New Orleans and San Francisco. The English land speculation company Balfour Guthrie installed a vast irrigation system that improved land values by allowing farmers to grow row crops and fruit trees, firmly establishing the town’s

OAKLEY

Discovery Bay is a unique community in Contra Costa County. The idea was born in 1970, when the Veronica Development Company envisioned a water-oriented community where you could “Live Where You Play,” which became the town’s motto. Those who put their faith in the project based on their dreams haven’t been sorry. Lots they bought for $15,000 have sold in recent years for 10 to 15 times that amount. Developer

The discovery of Native American artifacts in Big Break clearly establishes Oakley as a site of that earlier culture. The first evidence of European settlers in Oakley can be traced to Randolph C. Marsh, one of the town’s first landowners (but no relation to Dr. John Marsh, who pioneered what is now Brentwood). In 1897, Marsh arrived and foresaw that the area could produce successful crops. He purchased 12 acres of land,

DISCOVERY BAY

Ken Hofmann opened sales in 1978 and buyers slept in the streets in order to get the lot of their choice. In 1984, Discovery Bay unveiled its crown jewel: an 18-hole championship golf course. The final bays of the original Discovery Bay development opened in 1988. In 1997, Discovery Bay became a community services district, assuming oversight of most of its own activities other than land-use decisions and emergency services. (Land use and police services are overseen by the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors, while fire service is provided by the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District). The expansion of the community, Discovery Bay West, began in 2000, at which time the official name of the community became The Town of Discovery Bay. In 2007, Discovery Bay was granted its own Postal ZIP Code, 94505, as its population grew past 17,000. BETHEL ISLAND In 1860, a Mr. Stone reclaimed

plotted the town and named the first five streets Main, Acme, Ruby, Star and Home, spelling MARSH with the initial letter of each street name. Nicknamed “sandlappers” by critics who said crops would never grow in the sandy soil, the early settlers proved otherwise, turning Oakley into a bountiful source of fresh fruits and vegetables. In the 1930s, Oakley’s Main Street was dotted with packing sheds, and agriculture was shipped via the railroad throughout the nation. Oakley became a city in 1999.

agricultural dynamism. Brentwood incorporated as a city in 1948. It remained a small agricultural community until the last decade of the century, when its proximity to the financial centers of the Bay Area and its relatively affordable housing triggered rapid growth. The population grew nearly five times from 1990 to today’s 50,000-plus, bringing a suburban lifestyle and the related influx of goods and services to the formerly rural area. The effort to preserve at least some of the agricultural heritage continues today.

the land known as Bethel Island under the Swamp and Over Flowed Act of 1855. It was named Stone Tract. Ten years later, Stone sold the land to Major William K. Bethel, who used it to grow feed for the dairy herd on the island. Bethel Island, which was officially named in 1898, actually became an island in the 1890s when surrounding sloughs were dredged. The Bethel Island Bridge, a onelane wooden plank structure, was built in 1918. During this same time, the island was farmed by William J. Hotchkiss, who purchased 1,317 acres to grow potatoes, beans and sugar beets. During the 1920s and ’30s, Bethel Island became known as a fishing paradise and haven for hunters. Harbors were built along the island’s waterfront, and recreation flourished. Electricity was first brought to the island in 1946. In 2010, construction was completed on a new Bethel Island Bridge, replacing the aging wooden structure that provided the only access to the island.

BYRON

KNIGHTSEN

The town of Byron was founded in 1878, when the San Pablo and Tulare Railroad Company built a track connecting Contra Costa and San Joaquin counties, though settlers had been in the area for many years. After finding no luck in the Sierra Nevada gold mines, German immigrant Henry Wilkening built a house on land he purchased near where the railroad planned to build its station. He became Byron’s first Post Master and built the town’s first hotel, saloon and livery stable. In the 1860s, R.O. Risdon discovered the Byron Hot Springs. His nephew, Lewis Risdon Mead, discovered more than 50 springs ranging in temperature from 52 to 140 degrees. Mead developed the now-idle Byron Hot Springs, popular with the rich and famous in the 1920s and ’30s. In 1938, the resort was closed and sold to the government, which used it as a prisoner of war interrogation center during World War II. Plans to re-open the resort are in the works, and include hotel, golf and hot spring spa facilities.

Knightsen was founded in 1898, when the Sante Fe Railroad made its preliminary survey through the area. George W. Knight, a native of Maine, purchased 110 acres of land from Lazarus Barkley, acreage that eventually became the town of Knightsen. The name Knightsen was derived from Knight’s last name and the last three letters of his wife’s maiden name, Christensen. Dairies were established in the early 1900s. In the 1920s, the Knightsen Irrigation District brought water to the fields, allowing farmers to plant a huge variety of crops. The Knightsen Farm Bureau was established in 1918, and the Farm Bureau Center is still a community gathering place. Recently, Knightsen received official historical designation for several of its downtown buildings. Historical information was compiled from “Footprints in the Sand” by Kathy Leighton, the East Contra Costa County Historical Society, the Antioch Chamber of Commerce and the Antioch Historical Society.

The AntiochBrentwood Masonic Lodge #175 is located in the historic Belshaw Theater building, located at 521 W. 2nd St., in downtown Antioch. The lodge celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2015.

Welcome! 2016

www.eastcountywelcomeguide.net

Masonic Lodge At 150 The year was 1865 - Abraham Lincoln was the president of the U.S. and after the end of a bitter civil war that split the country in two, he would be assassinated in a small theater in Washington D.C. The Wild West was beckoning as Americans migrated to the frontier, and here in Eastern Contra Costa County the economy was booming, thanks to the huge demand for black diamonds. Five coal-mining towns thrived, including Nortonville, Somersville, Stewartsville, West Hartley and Judsonville. It was against this backdrop in 1865 that a group of men decided the time had come to form their own Freemasonry lodge, and Masonic Lodge #175 was founded. The lodge celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2015. “We are a community service organization that is about brotherhood, friendship and community service,” said Bill Ramos, secretary of the lodge. The lodge was originally named the Clairborne Lodge, in honor of Gilbert B. Clairborne, who was deputy grand master. Upon becoming grand master, Brother Clairborne stated his objection to any lodge being named for a living person, which resulted in the first name change – to the Antioch Lodge. The name changed again in 1989, when the Brentwood Masonic Lodge consolidated with the Antioch Lodge, giving them the name they use today. So many things have come and gone in the 150 years since, but the lodge remains a civic and communal bastion in East Contra Costa County. Today, the lodge operates and owns

the Belshaw Theater building at 521 W 2nd St., in downtown Antioch. Monthly meetings, which are off-limits to the public, are held in the ornate lodge room, adorned with an altar, symbols, pillars and throne-like chairs. Officers wear tuxedos and decorative aprons. The lodge currently boasts 146 members, some of who have been around for decades, others having just joined within the past few years. Contrary to conspiracy theories, the Masons are not an ancient organization bent on taking over the world, but rather a fraternal organization that adheres to traditions, while giving members a place to socialize with fellow ‘brothers’ and engage in a variety of charitable activities. “The principals of Freemasonry which are brotherly love, relief and truth, have not changed,” said Michael Vickerman, master of the AntiochBrentwood Lodge. “I use the tools, symbols and principals of Freemasonry to live a better life, the way we are meant to live, following the golden rule.” According to Vickerman, the Masons originally met in quarters they rented from Galloway and Boobar for $10 a month. In 1878, the Antioch Lodge jointly bought an empty lot with the Odd Fellows and erected a hall where members met for 43 years. In 1927, the brethren sold their half of the hall to the Odd Fellows and moved into the Belshaw Theater building, where they still meet today. Historically, monthly meetings were held on or near a full moon, which provided light to make traveling easier. Many of the lodge’s founding members traveled via horseback, by

foot or by steamship, which wasn’t always safe. On June 9, 1908, Archie McFaul, senior warden of the Antioch Lodge, was on a ship that was quickly sinking into the rough seas at the junction of the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers. He was returning to Black Diamond in Pittsburg after a lodge meeting. After Captain B.A. Beringer of the Constance rescued McFaul’s party, he sent a thank-you letter, expressing his gratitude. “Several boats passed us but paid no attention to our signs of distress,” he wrote. “Captain B.A. Beringer took notice of our signals, which, no doubt saved us.” Today, as always, the AntiochBrentwood Lodge remains committed to “making good men better men,” through its meetings and philanthropic endeavors. “I feel a great honor to be amongst brothers and great friends who have taken an oath and obligation at the altar to follow the principals that have guided Masons through history,” said Vickerman. Charity is a significant tenet of the lodge’s mission. Last year, the Masons of California donated $90,460 to the Junior Giants organization and continue to participate in their Masons 4 Mitts program. They also support the Raise a Reader program, which gives annual scholarships to local high school students and schools. “We’re very much a philanthropic organization,” said Vickerman. W

Expanding The City’s Library The City of Brentwood is writing the next and final chapter in the story of the city’s new library. After years of debate on how to pay for the new facility, city leaders have preliminarily approved a funding plan. “More than half of the library’s estimated $14.6 million cost - $7.7 million - will come from leftover bond money from the financing of the new city hall, parking garage and community center,” said City Manager Gus Vina. “Another $5 million will come from bonds that were refinanced by the city last year. The key to all this is we are not touching our reserves and that $7.7 million needs to be used up. It’s always kind of been there in the spirit of when we get to the right moment to spend it on the library.” “We are thrilled with the city council’s decision to move forward with funding the new library,” said Shannon Miller, president of the nonprofit Brentwood Library

Foundation, which launched in 2014 to support the Brentwood Library. “It will truly be a place that all citizens will be proud to call their own. We are excited to be moving forward with this amazing project.” Vina said the next steps, will include formally approving architectural services and creating a project budget, timeline and council subcommittee to oversee the plan. Although it’s too early to guarantee when construction will begin, it could start in the next 18 to 24 months. The present plan is to demolish the current facility, at 104 Oak St., as well as the city-owned empty buildings next door at 118 and 120 Oak St., and replace them with a new, 20,000-square-foot structure that includes a partial second story and an outdoor courtyard. Conceptual details call for the new structure to be approximately 15,000 square feet larger than the current library. The first floor is projected to

be 13,000 square feet, with a partial 7,000-square-foot second story and mezzanine. Its features will include a small plaza and separate stand-alone community room on the corner of Oak and Third streets; outdoor-reading areas accessible only from inside the library; a garden area on the first floor; educational, artistic and water features; glass walls in parts of the building to let in natural light and the possibility of a small café. The boardwalk leading to the entrance to the library will be concrete made to look like wood, and the entrance along Oak Street will be tucked under an arcade similar to the one at the community center across the street. A preliminary project cost breakdown includes $10.9 million for construction, $1.4 million for architecture and design, $1 million for furnishings, $800,000 for relocation expenses and $500,000 for technology and telephone services.

city of oakley with Oakley Community Gardens, Segar serves as the director of a community garden in Brentwood. In Oakley, he is looking to organize like-minded residents for a chance at farming. Should the movement grow, they are likely to find an ally in Council Member Sue Higgins, who has expressed repeated interest in a community farm and, like Segar, would like to see the efforts to start one reenergized. “If people want to do a farm in Oakley, I’m all supportive of it,” she said. “I gave my support (at Moura), and I don’t know why I wouldn’t again.” Higgins has enjoyed watching the gardeners work their magic. “The garden has really changed the whole dynamics of that park … I think it’s been a great project,” said Higgins. “From what I see, the gardeners are getting a lot more interaction with other residents at (the new) site, where they can give out tips and get more people interested.” So far, plots at the garden have produced everything from tomatoes, summer squash and watermelons to sunflowers and herbs. yields.

shared responsibility that would have generated an organic food supply for the neediest town residents. Rather, the focus has now gone to individualized garden plots rented out by gardeners month by month, totaling 25 in all, with more on the way. The plots, mostly 10 by 20 feet, are more numerous than the 17 spaces that were offered at the Moura Property, which had the bulk of its one-acre span set aside for the envisioned farm. However, the farm component might not be lost just yet. Paul Segar, a community organizer who played a leading role in bringing the garden in Oakley to fruition, said he would like to see the city council revisit leasing the Moura Property – currently vacant and earmarked for future plans by the city – back to Oakley Community Gardens or another group interested in farming. “I think there needs to be another conversation … an open and honest conversation at city hall,” said Segar. “It’s a discussion that the people of Oakley should have a voice in. Overall, I think that a farm project matches up with just about everything the city wants, as part of the master plan. It has become a passion for many cities now, even those that are completely developed, to be able to start producing their own organic and healthy food … this is the most sustainable thing that anybody can do.” Although he is no longer affiliated

Welcome! 2016

A group of Oakley gardeners are embracing a move that has brought them new opportunities and room to grow, just one year after the city first granted them a space of their own. Oakley Community Gardens, which was originally approved in May 2014 and brought to life two months later, can today be found on a quarter-acre parcel at Creekside Park off of Laurel Road. With its chain-link fencing, parking, access to restrooms and high visibility from the street, the park is a far cry from the undeveloped lot members had been operating out of previously, in an area of town known as the Moura Property on O’Hara Avenue. “We have been growing by leaps and bounds since we moved to the new site … in fact, we have had an ongoing waitlist for plots within one week of moving,” said Shawn Horrocks, the project’s director. The change of location came about at a city council meeting, when gardeners lobbied the council to extend their three-year lease and ended up with an offer to relocate to Creekside, new amenities and all, with a 10-year lease, for an annual, $12 fee. The tough-to-beat deal even included access to city water for a flat rate, which the gardeners had been eager to have for a while. Considerably smaller than what they had before, the new location required the crew to scrap their plans for a community farm, a

childrens classes, and Frantz is working on her first adult class, called Romantic Couples Cooking. The farm market offers local organic eggs, honey, jams, olive oils and vinegars. “We also have those quick last-minute gift items that are from local vendors for our customers to purchase,”

Frantz added. “This year we are having our first Vintage Fair with wine tasting, tomato tastings, cheese tastings and many vendors with all sorts of specialty items.” Event settings include the kitchen room for up to 33, the farmers market room for 120, the back patio for 120, an eight-person conference room and unlimited space in the orchard. So if you haven’t visited Tess’ be sure to stop by, and if you are a regular, take the time for a return outing. Come sit in the lovely environment and relax: no matter how you feel when you come in, you will leave feeling wonderful. Tess’ Community Farm Kitchen is located at 8091 Balfour Road, in Brentwood. The kitchen is open Wednesday through Sunday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call 1-800-800-5373, log onto www.CommunityFarmKitchen.com., or visit on Facebook at Community Farm Kitchen.

Local resident Barbara Frantz opened Tess’ Community Farm Kitchen in August 2015, much to the delight of eager customers who had been anticipating the arrival of the one-of-kind facility. Fans of the farm kitchen will tell you that Tess’ is the healthy alternative place to eat, with vegetarian and gluten-free options for breakfast and lunch. One of their best sellers is Tess’ famous chicken pot pies, made with free-range chicken and organic veggies, baked in a croissant crust. Customers love them so much they call ahead to reserve their orders! “What sets us apart from other operations is that we offer fresh, locallysourced food,” said Frantz. “We don’t even have a microwave or deep-fryer, and we are the only place in town where people with dietary restrictions can still get yummy food. “But we are not a restaurant, we don’t turn tables. People come in and take as long as they want just to enjoy our environment.” Tess’ cooking classes are taking off and Frantz has just recently begun posting some of the recipes up on their website. The commercial kitchen has already hosted several

town of BETHEL ISLAND District (BIMID). BIMID will likely assume the responsibility of most of the infrastructures and operational facilities. The 310-acre project, adjacent to the Dutch and Sandmound sloughs, is expected to include 494 waterfront residential lots, and 66 condominiums built around a synthetic lagoon to give residents access to the water, and all points east and west to the San Francisco Bay. Crews dredged the marina basin 21 feet below sea level, and then obtained government permits to breach the Delta levee, creating a 160-foot-wide passage that provides water access between the new community and the Delta. Other amenities include a 3,000 square-foot community clubhouse that will include a fitness center and pool. “Delta Coves will be a luxury marina community that will feature high-quality waterfront homes, and provide residents with boating access to the Delta and San Francisco Bay,” Aguirre said. For more information, visit http://suncal.com/our-communities/ delta-coves/. W

A facilities installation agreement has been approved with the Diablo Water District, allowing building of water supply facilities to accommodate the project’s water service needs. Construction will start in the off-site, water-supply line, which will bring its current location at East Cypress and Bethel Island roads to the Delta Coves entrance. “In particular, recently securing a water supply is a significant milestone that brings us closer to readying the residential lots for sale to homebuilders,” Aguirre said. Work on the project is complicated, since it involves coordinating with several agencies, including the water district and the county, but is a welcome development. Work should continue well into 2016, and the sale of lots to homebuilders should coincide with the housing market’s demands. “Their intention is to be a good neighbor and a positive addition to our community, so we are proceeding with that spirit,” said Jeff Butzkaff, manager of the Bethel Island Municipal Improvement

Welcome! 2016

A Bethel Island property, long expected to be the site of a luxury marina community, will soon be awash in activity. The project, called Delta Coves, is southeast of the intersection of Bethel Island Road and Gateway Drive, and is slated to include up to 420 homes with private boat docks. It has a rocky history dating back to 1979, and has sat idle since 2008. However, the SunCal real estate development company is preparing to move it along after purchasing the land. “Our purchase of the property in mid-2012 is what brought new life to this project,” said SunCal spokesperson Joe Aguirre. “Since then, we have been busy with various preparatory steps that are necessary to move the project forward.” Much of the infrastructure on the site will need repair or replacement because it has deteriorated or was vandalized from 2008 to 2012, after global financial services firm Lehman Brothers went bankrupt. Meanwhile, new project developments are taking place.

delta RECREATION When your last name’s Morgan and you own a boat, there’s not much left to decide. At least that’s how Frank Morgan, owner of Captain Morgan’s Delta Adventures, saw it. “I’ve got the name and I’m a licensed captain so yeah, it seemed like a natural fit.” Morgan’s pirate ship is the Rosemarie – named in honor of his mother who passed away in 2011 – a 55-foot newly remodeled houseboat equipped to whisk patrons away for cruising adventures up and down the Delta. Adventurers can book

the Rosemarie for both hourly and overnight adventures with up to 35 guests, or simply procure a couple of tickets to one of the many pre-planned adventures the Captain has posted on his website. Captain Morgan and his crew can also customize cruises for you and your guests such as their Great Gatsby themed cruise. Cruises can be as simple as exploring the various bays of Discovery Bay, or setting course up Old River where the Captain radios the Bridge Tender at the Orwood Railroad Bridge to open the bridge so the

Rosemarie can pass under it. Cruises out on the open Delta provide panoramic views from the top deck of the Rosemarie. According to Captain Morgan, “one of our most exciting new adventures is our 4-day and 3-night mid-week adventure (you pick the dates) called “Discovering the Delta” - for up to 35 guests”. On this multiple-day adventure, the Captain combines both water and land excursions so guests can enjoy a relaxing, educational and fun adventure like none other on the Delta.

For Morgan and wife Melinda – the Rosemarie’s resident “wench” – the adventure cruises are all about showcasing the beautiful sites in and around the Delta. “This is not really about making money; it’s about letting people experience the Delta and enjoy themselves,” said Morgan. “It’s already been a lot of fun; we’re looking forward to the rest.” To book a cruise or for additional information, call 925.383.5346 or visit www.CaptainMorgansDelta Adventures.com. – Advertorial

Moving Ahead At Marsh Creek State Park Imagine a place with 3,700 acres of open, rolling hills dotted with blue oak trees, 70 miles of trails, hundreds of campsites and picnic areas and facilities for equestrians and recreational vehicles. Picture a historic, 160-year-old sandstone mansion standing in the middle of it, alongside evidence of human activity from 7,000 years ago and a 2,300-year-old Native American burial ground. Finally, envision hundreds of student visitors, learning about America’s Westward migration, Hispanic and Native American culture, organic farming and the effort to protect endangered and threatened species of plants and animals. That 3,700-acre place has existed since 2007, in the form of Marsh Creek State Park (MCSP), located along Brentwood’s southeastern border. The sandstone mansion and long history are there too, but plans to turn it all into a recreation and educational mecca have been

stalled since they were first adopted in 2012. Due to a lack of funding and personnel in the California Department of Parks and Recreation, the park is not yet open. Change, however, is on the horizon. Driven by the Parks Forward Commission established by Gov. Jerry Brown, the department is undergoing a comprehensive overhaul. A transformation team is halfway through its two-year effort to establish new policies and reliable funding that will update outmoded systems, catch up on deferred maintenance and provide high-quality facilities and programming to the public. At the park, progress is already occurring. The nonprofit John Marsh Historic Trust was established in 1994 to save and restore the mansion, which was built in 1856 by pioneer John Marsh, California’s first doctor, Contra Costa County’s first non-Hispanic white settler and a key figure in triggering America’s

Westward Movement and moving California toward statehood. A major stabilization project is underway, to be completed in the spring of 2016. In 2014, the trust became a cooperating association with state parks and expanded its mission to benefit the entire park. Each of the last two years, it has hosted Heritage Day, a free event that allowed the public to visit the house, hike in the park and learn about its valuable historic and natural resources. Last year, the trust began planning and fundraising for an interpretive center that will be built in front of the house. The center will enable visits by the public and the delivery of education programming for local students. “We’re actively looking for partners that can help make improvements to the park sooner rather than later,” said Executive Director Rick Lemyre.

East County’s growing industry A quick look around the luscious landscape of East County with its rolling hills and abundant vineyards, and it’s easy to see why visitors might think they’re in the fabled Napa wine country. But locals here know that the beauty of East County is home to a thriving wine community second to none. Residents and visitors looking for a great bottle need look no further than the vineyards surrounding Brentwood, Oakley and Discovery Bay. In addition to wineries with welcoming tasting rooms, there are several wine bars featuring both local and international wine lists. With a sunny climate that supports both red and white grapes, there are plenty of options right here at home. As you make your way along Vasco Road into Brentwood, it’s easy to spot the 265 acres of rolling vineyards, all owned by Ron Nunn Farms. The Nunn’s

grow six varieties of red grapes and had their first harvest in 2015. An additional 150 acres are currently being planted along the same stretch of farmland. Hannah Nicole Vineyards is located in the sprawling agricultural zone between Brentwood and Discovery Bay. Boasting 10 varietals grown on the property, all of Hannah Nicole’s grapes are crushed, barreled and bottled on site. Guests will have no trouble finding a glass to please their individual palette inside the spacious tasting room. Or take your bottle outside and find a spot to enjoy a picnic in the sunshine, complete with gorgeous views and a number of outdoor seating areas. Located just a few minutes further south in Byron is Leer Vineyards. Leer has more than 37 acres of vines growing five varietals. Leer also has a large event center, several awards and

a philanthropic heart. Their awardwinning heroic red helps support the Military Warriors Support Foundation, which builds homes for veterans in need. Visitors to Leer can find a quiet place to enjoy their heroic red, along with sweeping views of Mount Diablo, or attend one of the many concerts hosted on the grounds. Leer has a reputation for great wine, live music and a fantastic atmosphere. If you are in the mood for something a little more exclusive, try Tamayo Vineyards in Brentwood. Sara Tamayo, who owns the property, will be happy to schedule a tasting or private event for you. The grapes from Tamayo’s 34 acres of vineyards are sent to Napa, to a custom-crush facility. If it’s something unique you desire, plan an intimate dinner party in their

most of his grapes to Cline Cellars in Sonoma, where they are crushed and bottled. Cline Wine can be found in many restaurants and bars in the area, including Cap’s in downtown Brentwood. Lecchesi also sends some of his grapes to Lucca Winery in Ripon, where they are crushed, bottled and sold in the tasting room. Aaron Meadows is a local East County farmer with 100 acres of prime vineyards, including 35 acres surrounding the prestigious Trilogy at the Vineyards community. His grapes run the range of reds, including zinfandel, petite sirah and Mouvedre. Meadows sells his harvests to Rosenbloom Cellars and Rockwall Wines. So, the next time you’re searching for that perfect glass of vino, whether in the peace and quiet of the beautiful countryside or in a vivacious crowd, stay local. It’s all right here.

more than 50 wines and have 12 beers on tap.” If you head east to Discovery Bay, even this tiny town has a happening spot - UnWined, located in the heart of the boating community. UnWined shares a few things with Vine + Grain, including the owners. “We change our wine list here quarterly, just like in Brentwood,” Roost said. “Things at UnWined are done on a slightly smaller scale and we focus a little more on specialized cheeses here.” Besides pairing a great wine with the perfect cheese, UnWined hosts paint nights, pop-up boutiques and Taco Thursdays. “UnWined has great cheeses, awesome wine and a beautiful atmosphere,” said Kitty Nellas of Brentwood. Lucchesi Vineyards is another local gem. Comprised over 500 acres of grapes, with several varietals varying from Mouvedre to zinfandel. Allan Lucchesi, who farms the acerage, sells

fabulous wine cellar. There, guests can enjoy culinary delights, while surrounded by a private wine collection of 5,000 bottles from around the globe. “My family has been here for years,” Tamayo said. “I’m fifth generation in Contra Costa.” The Co. Co. County Wine Company in downtown Brentwood combines the focus of a tasting room with the diversity of a wine bar. Owner Becky Bloomfield is also the owner of Bloomfield Vineyards in Brentwood. “This venue is my tasting room by day and a wine bar by night,” Bloomfield said. With live music most Friday and Saturday evenings, Bloomfield’s spot has become a local favorite. Also in Brentwood is The Vine + Grain, a chic wine bar with an international wine list. Owners Anthony and Alyssa Roost pride themselves on keeping things interesting. “Our menu and our wine list change quarterly,” Alyssa Roost says. “We offer

Reaping The Harvest With each passing season, East County continues to develop and mature as our population increases and more businesses find their niche in our backyard. Crops of houses have replaced many of the fields where fruit and vegetables once grew, but agriculture is still very much alive and well in East County. The Pacific Coast Farmers Market Association certifies annual farmers markets in Antioch and Brentwood. Antioch’s Somersville Towne Center Farmers Market, located in the Towne Center parking lot off of Somersville Road, is open on Sundays from May through October. The downtown Brentwood Farmers Market is scheduled to open in March and close in mid-November. For farmers markets dates and times, visit www. pcfma.com, which is updated weekly to let you know which vendors will be present that week. Local supermarkets offer plenty of produce already picked and packaged for your dining pleasure,

but East County offers foodies the special experience of gathering their own delectables straight from the orchard, from Bing cherries at Laird Ranch to apricots from Enos Family Farms. The recent addition of Tess’ Community Farm Kitchen in Brentwood, has added another dimension and layer to the farm fresh experience here in East County. Offering cooking classes, fresh food items and room for public and private events, Tess’ is a perfect addition to the popular and prolific agricultural bounty. During the summer, more than 30 produce stands offer scrumptious fruits, vegetables, jams, nuts, herbs and seasonings, plus oils and vinegars. Stands continue to get bigger and offer a greater variety of products every year. In 2007, the county passed an ordinance allowing growers to sell items not grown on the premises, such as water, soft drinks and pies, alongside their home grown goods. A list of all the local

growers can be found at the Harvest Time website, www.harvest4you.com. There are loads of local goodies to munch on, but an impressive array of high-quality wine grapes are also grown right here in East County. In 2004, the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors approved agricultural rezoning to allow local vineyards to feature wine-tasting rooms on their property. Hannah Nicole Vineyards in Brentwood took advantage of the development and now holds wine tastings as does Leer Vineyards in Byron, and local wines may also be tasted and purchased at Brentwood’s Co. Co. County Wine Company on First Street in Brentwood. If you’re looking to share the flavors of our end of Contra Costa County with friends and family unaware of our agricultural wonders, buy a gift basket from McCauley Brothers Olive Groves or Gursky Ranch Country Store. Share these treats with friends and neighbors – or keep it all for yourself. There’s plenty to go around. W

Zephyr Grill & Bar Classic Americana Downtown Brentwood is a quaint mix of eclectic pubs and popular eateries, and coming this spring there will be another new hangout for foodies; Zephyr Grill & Bar. Many locals are already familiar with the Americana-style establishment in Livermore, and fans are eagerly awaiting the opening of its Brentwood counterpart. Owner Randy Tei, is looking forward to the move too. “It didn’t take long for us to make the decision,” Tei said. “It was almost an immediate move between concept and actualization. I always liked the spot, and I think Brentwood is ready for another quality restaurant.” Tei, along with his wife, Lynn, and their executive chef Nick Musser, from Seattle, have created a warm and welcoming eating establishment

serving classic comfort food. The menu boasts a full bar and extensive wine list as well as delicious dishes such as fillet mignon, prime rib, meatloaf and pork chops. Also known for their succulent side dishes and elegant desserts including chocolate salted caramel crater cake and pina colada bread pudding, visitors will have no trouble diving into the tantalizing treats, the difficulty will be in deciding which sugary sweet to enjoy. These days, Tei, a former chef himself, is sticking to the management side of the house. And one of the events he enjoys managing the most is Christmas. “It’s one of my favorite things and has become a really big deal for us,” Tei said. “We just go crazy decorating, we have a special menu with dishes

like the Grinch’s Roast Beast. We even have events, breakfast with Santa and a cookie-decorating class. I can’t wait to bring all that to Brentwood.” Local residents can’t wait for Tei to bring his menu to Brentwood, either. Sonya Delima plans to be one of the new restaurant’s first guests. “We will definitely be trying the new location.” Tei and his wife have lived in Discovery Bay for more than 15 years. As residents and local diners themselves, they look forward to bringing their take on classic cuisine to their neighbors. “Sometime in early May, we should be open daily for lunch and dinner, and brunch on the weekends,” Tei said. “We can’t wait to be a part of the community.” W

Voted Best REAL ESTATE Office!

Jamie and her husband live in Brentwood, where they have been proud members of the community since 2008. So, whether you are looking to buy, sell or invest, Jamie Connors is the real estate professional for you. Anthony Lopez (Brentwood): It’s been a real pleasure working with Jamie Connors over the past few years. I’ve purchased a few properties in Apple Hill and Jamie has been a tremendous source of support and encouragement along the way! Buying a home is not always a smooth endeavor. There can be a lot of bumps on the road to owning a piece of the American dream but I have to say that Jamie works through all of them with ease. The purchase of my last home was a short sale and there were so many questions and concerns I had during the whole process. But, Jamie was always there to lend an open ear and provide answers whenever things seemed to get crazy. She is very knowledgeable of the real estate market and has put me in touch with some of the most incredible mortgage brokers. She even provided a list of contractors for me when I’ve had to renovate my properties. When you work with Jamie, you’re not just getting an excellent realtor, your also gaining a new friend. She’s someone who genuinely cares about you and your family’s needs and does her absolute best at making your home owning dreams a reality! So far I’ve sold two homes & purchased another with Jamie & it won’t stop there!

Building The Future Unlike the traffic it hopes to alleviate, the Contra Costa Transportation Authority’s (CCTA) Highway 4 projects are moving along at a steady clip. During a recent presentation about the agency’s work, CCTA Executive Director Randell Iwasaki told the Brentwood City Council that the overall widening of the Highway 4 corridor in East County is about two-thirds done, with all five segments slated for completion by the middle of 2016. The project will expand Highway 4 from four to eight lanes between Loveridge Road and State Route 160. “We are making great progress modernizing State Route 4,” Iwasaki said. The Contra Loma and G Street portion of the work was completed in 2015, with the Lone Tree and A Street section expected to be completed this spring. The Hillcrest Avenue project is estimated to be completed this summer. In the highway median, a 10-mile BART extension will run between Hillcrest Avenue in Antioch and the current Pittsburg and Bay Point station beginning in 2018. The 145-foot-long, 13-foot-wide

overcrossing will eventually carry pedestrians over the expanded fourlane westbound portion of Highway 4 to the future Antioch BART station in the highway median. The station, which is slated to open in May 2018, will enable East County residents boarding at Hillcrest Avenue to arrive at the Pittsburg-Bay Point station in 10 minutes. Joel Keller, president of BART’s board of directors, was excited as he watched a large crane hoist the overcrossing into place. “This bridge will ultimately be used by riders to enter through the Antioch station, pay their fare, walk up the stairs, go across the bridge, go down the platform on the other side and get on a train,” he said. “This is the most visible sign to date that rail is coming to eastern Contra Costa County.” Crews recently completed the connector ramps from westbound Highway 4 to northbound Highway 160, and from southbound 160 to eastbound Highway 4. This now allows motorists using the Antioch Bridge to get to Brentwood without using Hillcrest Avenue in Antioch to turn around or cut through Oakley.

Meanwhile, in far East County, crews are gearing up for the Balfour Road Project, which will elevate the Highway 4 Bypass over Balfour Road, allowing eastbound and westbound traffic to bypass the Balfour signal en route to Byron and Discovery Bay. The contract for that project is expected to be advertised in spring of this year. As the series of projects move forward, public opinion indicates county motorists want to see more improvements, Iwasaki said. About 76 percent of voters indicated there is either some need or a great need for transportation funding, according to a recent CCTA opinion poll. About 68 percent said they’d support the existing Measure J, in addition to adding another halfcent sales tax. Measure J, passed by county voters in 2004, is expected to generate $2.7 billion for county and local transportation projects before it expires in 2034. Locally, some of the desires of East County residents include access to a ferry service, improvements to local roads like Vasco Road and an eagerness to see BART come to Brentwood. “We are listening to what voters want,” Iwasaki said. The results bode well for the status of future transportation projects, since 65 percent of funds for county projects are generated locally, Iwasaki said. County voters passed a 20-year bond measure in 1988 and a similar measure to continue the funding in 2004. As the roads change in appearance in the future, the vehicles on them likely will follow, Iwasaki said. Some of the key changes include cars being the third most prevalent attachment to the Internet and being completely autonomous, including having the ability to talk to one another about speed, direction and pavement condition through the use of dedicated short-range communication. “It’s tough for most of us to comprehend what it’s going to look like in 10, 15, 20 and 30 years; where we have been in the last 10 years is fairly amazing,” said Councilmember Erick Stonebarger.“How we get there, where we go and the speed we do it in will be a fun ride throughout the whole process.” W

Master Guild Recognition is the highest level of achievement within the Standards of Excellence Program. Select employees in the dealer network join the ranks of “Master Guild” by achieving and maintaining their Master Certification status, and demonstrating the behaviors and values commensurate with the Mercedes-Benz brand. The honorees are true role models who hold themselves to the highest standards. Upon receiving this honor, these individuals are recognized by being invited to participate in an all-expense paid, once-in-a-lifetime trip to Germany through which they experience the heritage and passion behind the brand. Participants visit various Mercedes-Benz facilities in Stuttgart, the birthplace of the brand, and are immersed in the local culture, history and traditions. Master Guild participants are brand advocates! Returning participants share their experience with both coworkers and customers, and as such become “multipliers” in spreading the message of our guiding principle for the Mercedes-Benz brand, “The Best or Nothing.” Ian J. Lebby achieved the Master Guild award twice.

I love Autumn Lake Dental. I moved to Concord and I still go to Autumn Lake Dental. I had a gap in between my teeth while I was in the military, but thankfully Dr. Ton gave me my smile back and I am very happy with it.

Extended Weekday & Saturday Hours

–Shannon V. from Concord

“Dr. Ton was very gentle and nice. He sees my four year old and my seven year old. They were always afraid of going to the dentist and since we’ve been seeing him they love it. His staff is very thorough and friendly.

–Tania S. fromOakley

“My wife and I moved here to Brentwood and did not have a dentist. She got a toothache, so we found Dr. Ton. She was scared to death of dental work as she has trouble getting numb. Dr. Ton exceeded our expectations. My wife’s words to me after getting home were that Dr. Ton and his team were awesome. He will now be our new family dentist.

–John H. from Brentwood

Trieu Ton, DDS

Dr. Ton started Autumn Lake Dental to treat families of Oakley with ethical and gentle care, just as he treats his family. He also supports the local community by career mentoring high school students at the Outreach Conference and providing free dental care to those in need through the Dentistry from the Heart event. Autumn Lake is that small, quality dental office that you’ve been looking for!

The Fur Is Flying If Doggie Depot in Brentwood is the Ritz of dog grooming establishments, owner Randae Bither is definitley its resident pet whisper. “I just talk dogs; they are my passion,” said Bither, who started her dog-grooming business in 1983 in Oakley. “I stress continued education and training, and we do well in regional competitions in Southern California and Las Vegas and even in online competitions, for which groomers submit photographs,” she said. In addition, team members are CPR and pet-tech certified and “meet high standards,” she said proudly. Bither is also expanding her space and services, and creating boarding facilities for both dogs and cats – in separate areas, of course. At the new 4505 O’Hara Ave. building, her team of groomers will continue to participate in local and national grooming competitions. On a recent Saturday, dozens of

dogs were groomed and awaiting pickup by their owners, who rely on Bither and her staff of 10 to bathe their pets, trim their nails, brush their bodies and blow dry their coats during scheduled visits. The dogs enjoy the shampoos, and the salon has multiple bathing stations with elevated baths. Dogs can walk into the washtub, which is then raised to the preferred height of the groomer, to provide better shampooing and rinsing. Similarly, the grooming tables can also be lowered and raised, a real advantage for older or less-active dogs. For diva dogs, Doggie Depot can add extra nail and paw-pad treatments, plus colorful hair accessories such as feathers and ribbons. Ruth Ann Vaughn of Brentwood says she has been taking Pipa, her cocker spaniel, to Doggie Depot since she was a puppy. “Pipa is seven and I’ve never been disappointed in the grooming they do

here,” she said. “Randae works meticulously on every aspect of the grooming.” She also praised the owner for her “service to the community and support of many local programs.” A Liberty High graduate, Bither and her staff give back to the community by providing low-cost immunizations and working with organizations that serve homeless animals, including the Furry Friends Feeding Program. Bither offers several customer-service options to her customers, including standing appointments, a buy-10, getone-free grooming service and a discount on retail items. Prices depend on the services requested, as well as the breed of the dog. If you are in a hurry, Bither has also established an expressgrooming service, which cuts the dog’s visit time to two hours at the salon. For more information, call 925-516-7224. W

Third Place

Once again, East County shutterbugs answered the call to our Welcome! Guide cover contest, and you didn’t disappoint! From rustic landscapes and serene locales, to kids and families enjoying the wonderful array of East County events and venues, the quality, vision and unstoppable enthusiasm behind this year’s submissions were amazing. The Press editorial board had a difficult time selecting this year’s winners, but the finalists came down to those we felt best captured the essence, heart and face of East County. The winners are Robin Mayoff, first place; Cindy Harris, second place; and Steve Verduzco, third place. A special thanks to everyone who took the time to submit and share their favorite works, including Arielle Madnick, Tony Kukulich, Debra Faletti, Jeff Strawther, Sydney Gartmond, Ray Figueroa and Karen Troy. Keep those cameras handy, and we’ll see you here again next year! To view a selection of the cover contest submissions, visit www.thepress.net. W
