WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

Life-Long Smiles For 2018 Here it is two weeks into January and the entire East County farmland is covered in fog. You can’t hear the sound of tractors or irrigation pumps, but you know the planting of our famous Brentwood Sweet Corn is right around the corner. Like many, I made my New Year’s resolutions and have already checked a few off my list. What a great time to look in on a local business that can get you started on yours. The really great part about this journey is OrthoWorks is not only located in Antioch, they have a total of twelve offices in the San Francisco Bay Area. That being said, I was off to check out this local office and find out more about the world of braces. The office was easy to find and immaculate. I was greeted immediately and given the scoop on a multitude of services offered by the OrthoWorks team. Not only do they have several people working in the office and assisting patients, Dr. Lowe-Ching, Dr. Shen, Dr. Yi Chin Liu

and Dr. Perera are just four of the over dozen doctors treating patients at this location. I was able to observe patients coming and going during my quick visit and realized two things. One, everyone was happy to be there and two, they were greeted with a warm hello and smile. And, the office staff was quick to reschedule appointments and handle business transactions professionally. OrthoWorks offers several treatments including Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, Clear Braces, Adult Braces, and Orthodontic treatment for children and adults all with the latest technology. I got to peek in the treatment area and was really impressed by the cleanliness and high tech equipment. The team works so well together and the patients are treated like family. They also offer surgically assisted orthodontic procedures, surgery for cleft palate and lips and address TMJ and Sleep Apnea. The really cool part is, they can do a computerized digital mapping of the orthodontic procedures. I told you these guys had the latest technology. Probably everyone’s fear of orthodontics is the price. If you go to their website, you can fill out the Pre-treatment survey and take it with you for your visit to the office. There you will work with a patient advisor who will give you an office tour, clinical exam, take some X-rays & photos, give you an orthodontic diagnosis and talk to you

about insurance, cost of the treatment and tell you about the many ways for payment, including On-Line Care Credit. So, you know how much and how long it will take before you get started. So I asked when should you begin thinking about orthodontics. They told me that you can be seen at age 7, however, even senior adults can consider procedures to give them the smile they have always wanted. No matter how young or how old, this team of professionals really care about making a difference in your life and giving you that lifelong smile. Well, OrthoWorks, this snoop gives you ten golden toothbrushes for taking care of 60,000+ patients with 100 years of combined knowledge and experience. It was a pleasure to meet your team and I proudly encourage our readers to consider OrthoWorks for their orthodontic care, I know I will. Who will be snooped next? It could be you!

OrthoWorks is located at 5117 Lone Tree Way in Antioch. They can be reached at 925-777-9922 or visit www.orthoworks. com.

Your Mouth on Meth

damage, skin and heart infections, hepatitis, stroke, lung disease, kidney and liver damage and suicidal thoughts. Other problems associated with meth abuse are rapid weight loss, pale complexion, nervousness and rapid aging.

Methamphetamine abuse is becoming increasingly prevalent and has devastating effects on its users. It is a highly addictive drug and stimulates the brain by enhancing the mood and intensifying body movements. The typical meth abuser uses the drug more than 20 times per month than the typical patterns of abuse in other illegal drugs such as cocaine. Meth abuse was originally believed to be concentrated in rural areas but now it has been reported as the drug of choice in urban areas as well. Meth use has been most pronounced among males between ages of 19 and 40.

Meth causes a lot of damage in the mouth such as rapid increase in cavities, dry mouth, bad breath, wearing of teeth, teeth fractures, uncontrollable jaw clinching and multiple tooth loss. The cavities can be so rapid that the teeth may be destroyed forcing the patient to end up in dentures. Danger to the teeth also comes from increase in the intake of sugars due to carbohydrate craving while using the drug. Patients who abuse meth usually do not maintain oral hygiene, which adds to the rapid increase in cavities and gum infections. Soft tissues in the mouth also get infected with candida, which causes fungal infection all over the mouth.

Apollo Dental Care is the dental office of Dr. Sue Padavettan, D.D.S. Dr. Sue has 15 years of experience in dentistry. Graduated from USC with outstanding achievement award for restorative dentistry and was elected member of Honor Dental Society by the Zeta Chapter and is a active member and ADA, CDA and CCDS. Apollo Dental Care supports Heritage Patriots & East County Little League.

Meth has both short and long term effects on the body. Short-term effects include euphoria, increase in energy, loss of appetite, sleeplessness, tremors, nausea, vomiting, seizures and unpredictable behavior. Long-term effects are high blood pressure, brain

Meth abuse is on the increase and it does so much destruction to the entire body. As discussed earlier meth does alot of destruction to the teeth also but getting a complete dental exam from the dentist will help to take care of the dental issues. Meth users may be reluctant to admit it’s

ON THE HOUSE

Unique Home Improvements Perfect For DIY Here’s a quick question for you: What’s your favorite DIY project you’ve ever completed? Chances are the answer pops right into your mind, and even if you’ve completed hundreds of DIY projects over the years, you probably have some that truly stand out. Those that weren’t at the top of your list may fall lower for several reasons. Maybe the result wasn’t what you hoped for, the project wasn’t particularly rewarding or you’ve done it before. If that’s the case, don’t worry. Here are five unique projects you probably have never tackled before. Try them on for size to improve your home and find a new answer to your most satisfying DIY project ever. * Clean your water with a new filter system. Cut the costs and clutter of bottled water while being environmentally conscious with this project. Breach your

current water line to solder in a new shut-off valve, drill a new faucet hole and attach this line to the filter and you’ll be enjoying filtered water in no time. U.S. landfills are already overflowing with more than 2 million tons of discarded water bottles but you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that you’re not adding to them. * Breathe easier. Why stop at clean water in your home when you can also enjoy cleaner air? Renting an air scrubber can allow you to remove invisible — yet unhealthy — gases, particles and chemicals from your home’s air. Your local rental supply store will help you find the right air scrubber for your area to be sure you’re removing the pollutants that matter most.

Tackle your new project today

* Give your furniture a facelift. If that upholstered furniture isn’t looking as sharp today as it once did, don’t settle

* Let there be light. If natural light is a problem in your home, it could be that your window treatments are to blame. Large drapes and curtains can give your home a dated look and rob your rooms of the light they need. Instead, lose these old window treatments and install vertical blinds or shutters. These new, lighter treatments will give you better control of the light and privacy in your home than their older counterparts.

* Update and refresh your ceilings. Popcorn is great at the movies. On your ceiling? Not so much. Spray your ceiling with warm water, and scrape away the popcorn itself with a drywall scraper. Collect these contents on a tarp and toss them. You’re then ready to patch any holes caused by overzealous scraping before priming and painting your brandnew ceiling.

HOME & LIFESTYLE

5 Ways To Declutter Your Home Amidst the end of the holiday season and the New Year, your home can become rather messy. Whether its drawers becoming cluttered, the kitchen, or just the entire house, there are simple ways to easily declutter your home. Even for the busiest of house-holds. The first place to start, would be the kitchen. The kitchen can be the busiest zone in the house, and like many can become unorganized rather quickly. 1. Start off getting rid of all the food, whether refrigerated or in the pantry, that has been sitting around for some time. The second thing to do in regards to the pantry would be to label everything. Baskets can be placed on pantry shelves and filled with your favorite snacks and treats. As an example, labeling a basket, “Chips” or “Bread” can make it that much easier when looking for specific items.

2. Make a rule for the entire household. If an item has not been used for at least six months, then either throw it out or donate the item. If this idea does not work, or you are still too attached to certain items, you can get a box and label it with the items and date, if within that year you have not used what is inside of the box, it is time to donate. 3. The closet. The dreaded closet. This space can become a mountain of clothes, all in the time it takes to get ready. A lot of us tend to keep unwanted clothes, maybe because we say to ourselves “I’ll definitely still wear that”. There is always a time and a place for certain items, and sometimes someone else can use them more than you would. Since the weather is cold this time of year, start with your winter wear. Keep the new or recently purchased items, then start going through what you have not worn in a while. Create a pile of wanted and unwanted clothing. Do this for every season. Such as spring, winter, summer and fall. The items in your closet, include shoes as well. It can be hard to depart from shoes, but try to determine if you will wear them again. Once you go through your whole closet, take the pile of unwanted clothes and to your local Goodwill store to be donated.

4. The bathroom. Though small, the bathroom can easily become cluttered simply from daily use. Although since the bathroom is a small space, it can easily be organized. Simple fixes as storing cotton balls and Q-tips into containers such as mason jars, or any decorative jar that fits your style. Command hooks can be attached to the inside of your cabinets for you to hang such items as straighteners, curling irons and even jewelry. Folding towels is essential to your bathroom becoming organized. 5. The last step is to go through the entire household and get rid of any loose items you can find and toss them or recycle them. Such as unneeded receipts and school papers. A simple fix as tossing tiny items such as paper, can have huge results. Not only on the household but on the eyes, as well. Now that huge stack of papers in your office is no longer an eye sore. Decluttering your home does not have to be a battle, take it one step at a time and the results will show.

LAW OFFICES OF MICHAEL PRIMUS

Debts Forgiven In Bankruptcy Are Not Taxable Income This time of year I routinely get inquiries about forgiven debts and the dreaded form 1099. As a general proposition, the tax laws create an obligation to pay tax whenever the taxpayerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finances improve. For example, a paycheck improves my financial position and creates an obligation to pay tax on that income. With a paycheck the taxes are taken out directly and remitted by my employer. With that in mind, if I owed $30,000 but was able to resolve the debt by paying $5,000 I would have improved my financial position and might assume I would owe tax on the $25,000. Whether I owe the tax depends on my circumstances. Debts are commonly forgiven through settlements and bankruptcy. In a settlement the lender agrees to accept a sum of money to resolve a debt. Generally, the amount will be in the range of thirty to sixty cents on the dollar of the balance owed. That

28

means a $5,000 debt might be settled for $1,500 to $3,000. Upon payment the borrower will have no further obligation to the lender. Settlements are common when the original debt was for a credit card or personal loan. Bankruptcy can allow a person to pay little or nothing and have no further obligation to the lender. The bankruptcy system refers to forgiven debts as having been discharged. Regardless of the terminology, the point is the money is no longer owed. That may seem like the end of the story but later the borrower may get a 1099. Form 1099 reflects cancellation of debt by the lender, it does not create a taxable event. In fact, very few people should pay the tax. Unfortunately many people prepare their own tax returns and mistakenly pay the tax. The IRS cheerfully accepts the money! The rule making cancelled debt taxable has two major exclusions discussed below.

time the debt was forgiven. The IRS rarely challenges a claim of insolvency. Either of these exclusions will render the forgiven money non-taxable, you do not need both. All you need to do is attach IRS form 982 to your tax return to clarify why the income reflected in the 1099 is nontaxable. The exceptions are also discussed in IRS form 982 and IRS publication 4681 which can be found on the IRS website at www.irs.gov. At the Law Office of Michael Primus we have helped thousands of clients get out of debt and start fresh through bankruptcy. We have offices in Antioch, Walnut Creek and Hercules and can be contacted at 925-706-9200.

1. The debt was forgiven in bankruptcy. This requires filing bankruptcy and obtaining a discharge from the bankruptcy court. 2. You were insolvent when the debt was forgiven. This does not require a bankruptcy. It means your debts exceeded the value of your assets at the

AMY’S BRIGHT ADVICE

Stress And Its Result On Your Mindset For Success! The importance of reducing stress in order for you to fulfill your goals and dreams to be successful is not only needed but it is something that cannot be ignored. The over-activation of our stress hormones have been linked to high blood pressure, heart attacks, lower immunity, depression, anxiety, and more. With these things present in your body there is no possible way to react at your highest potential in your personal nor your career life. Many of us set 2018 goals at the beginning of the new year and luckily since it’s still January we haven’t got off track yet but I must remind each of you the importance of a healthy mind and body will decide if you will be able to keep those goals into February and the future! The Bible makes it clear that our thinking and our hearts are inseparably linked. What and how we think affects our heart. Proverbs 23:7 says, “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” So, to

take responsibility for your thoughts, we must renew our minds and clean up our thinking. Our thoughts will have a huge effect on our ability to succeed or fail on our daily goals. Now that we know how important it is to have a healthy mind in order for us to succeed, what can we do on a daily basis to help insure that we reduce our stress and clean up our mind? The following tips are just some ways that you can help your mind and body be at its healthiest state to work at its fullest capacity:

to do it again tomorrow!)

• Eating whole, real foods restores balance and reduces the effects of stress on your body. Replacing harmful substances such as caffeine, alcohol, and refined sugars, with clean proteins, fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats helps regulate your hormone levels, including stress hormones. Your stomach and your brain are constantly sending signals to each other, so by keeping your microbiota (the bacteria in your gut) healthy, your brain feels less stressed.

• We do it all day, every day, and yet we often forget the healing powers of deep breathing. By slowing down your heart rate and lowering blood pressure, breathing deeply relieves stress.

• The quickest way to relieve stress is to release endorphins through exercise. You don’t need to go to a gym if that isn’t what your comfort zone is, instead just take a fast paced walk or move (it’s not what you do, it’s that you do it – so get out and move and make it fun so you want

• Sleep habits are essential. Everybody, whether you believe so or not, should be having between 6-8 hours of sleep a night in order for your body to work at its best during the day. Some struggle with getting your body to relax enough to sleep but to relieve stress before bed you can always try some relaxation techniques and make sure that you disconnect from technology at least an hour before bedtime.

• Ultimately, your biggest solution to reducing stress is to change your mindset! And that mindset must begin with your thoughts: Philippians 4:8 says it best, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

Delta Automotive Vehicle ownership is a privilege, a necessity, and an undeniable responsibility. The lives of the driver, their loved ones, and those surrounding them depend on the owner properly maintaining their means of transportation with diagnostics and repairs. Delta Automotive of Brentwood has a reputation for providing customers with honest advice at their time of need and is proud to offer a wide range of expert mechanical services. Established in 2017, Delta Automotive started from a family legacy of auto repair and a shared love of cars. Owner, Roger Boaz, wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps by owning and operating a shop of his own. With over 25 years of auto repair experience, his business philosophy is to provide the best service possible at a reasonable price. In addition to having a degree in business administration, Roger is also an ASE Certified Master Mechanic, a factory-trained Toyota Master Diagnostic Technician, a Certified Hybrid Technician, and Delta is a California Licensed Smog Test and Repair Facility. They love their customers and invite you to call or visit the facility during business hours or by Saturday appointment to discuss your automotive concerns. Experienced with virtually all makes and models, Delta has the knowledge and skills required to diagnose sophisticated problems.

We depend on our vehicles so that we can provide and care for ourselves and our families. Whenever someone operates a vehicle, there is an inherent element of risk. The most important thing a driver can do is mitigate this risk by taking care of automotive repairs as soon as possible to assure the vehicle is operating safely and efficiently. Proper upkeep allows you to keep your ride in peak condition, improving performance and diminishing unexpected break downs. Furthermore, it provides an excellent opportunity to identify minor problems before they escalate to a dangerous safety threat and an overwhelming financial burden. Investing a few dollars now can keep you out of harm’s way and save you a bundle later. Many people like to frequently upgrade their vehicle, making it increasingly important to keep their car in top-notch condition to assist in the financing of a new one. Life can change dramatically in a very short period of time. Whether you want to upgrade your style or simply require a different vehicular design, it makes perfect sense to keep your current auto in mint condition to yield a better price down the road. Finding a trustworthy mechanic with a reliable track record of excellence is the first step to properly managing the upkeep of your vehicle. Delta Automotive places great emphasis on honesty, making sure the customer fully understands the big picture and how to get the most value out of their expenditure. They welcome the opportunity to be your go-to mechanic, getting you back on the road

in no time with optimum automotive performance and increased safety. Satisfied customer, Gay R., of Discovery Bay has this to say about Delta’s owner: “Roger is a good mechanic and he is honest. The wonderful thing about him is that he always finds the problem and is able to get you back on the road. I don’t like to recommend places or people, but I recommend Roger.” Delta Automotive will get you back in the driver’s seat swiftly and provide you with peace of mind during your travels. This trustworthy auto shop assists and guides every customer on how to save money, prioritize safety, and protect their investment. The mission of Delta Automotive is to put the customer first with honest assessment, reliable service, and fair-minded pricing that results in incomparable value.

Delta Automotive is located at 570 Valdry Ct., C-1 in Brentwood and can be reached at 925-684-7931.

February 2018

Delta Automotive People are busier than ever, and the lack of reliable transportation can throw someone into a tailspin. There is never a convenient time for automotive worries and woes, and when they occur we are often forced to make pricey and impetuous decisions in order to get back on the road as soon as possible. Delta Automotive can take the stress out of vehicular maintenance and repairs with honest service at a fair price. You can avoid unanticipated, hazardous, and disrupting incidents by keeping your car roadworthy. Routine auto service improves motorized performance and addresses issues before they become an insufferable burden. Straightforward diagnostics and reasonable pricing make Delta Automotive an exceptional value.
