TESS’ COMMUNITY FARM KITCHEN

Gratitude Thanksgiving is almost here. I was always told to give thanks at this time of year. But some years, I don’t feel like it. I wake up and see all the things that are not right with the world, instead of waking up to joy and happiness. When Tess’ Community Farm Kitchen started, I knew that it would be a “first of its kind”, that there would be challenges. The County’s regulatory activities for the Ag Core, where we are located, have called for continued revising of our business plan, a serious challenge. Through it all, this year, I choose to be grateful and I plan on being the best farm market, cooking school, and commercial production kitchen we can be in 2018. Choosing to be grateful is nothing more than a choice, and choosing to focus on gratitude is so much more rewarding than the alternative. Miracles happen when we focus on the positive. There have been several miracles at Tess’.

Building Tess’ was an act of faith, love and dedication to the Community, a place where people who visit can feel reconnected, renewed, loving and kind. I am grateful to all those who take a chance with Tess’ “innovative” idea. I am grateful to my contractor, my banker, all my customers, my chef, my employees, my volunteers who each regularly contribute to create a community from Tess’ basics. I am grateful to be alive and useful. This is our third year to offer Turkey Dinners for Thanksgiving and Prime Rib Dinners for the December holidays for sale, made from all organic ingredients. No one else around here is doing this.

Tess’ is too important to the Community to be closed just because we can’t serve breakfast or lunch right now. It’s important for me not to give up, just because I need to revise my business plan once again. I am grateful to have the chance to make Tess’ the best farm market in our area, the most amazing place to have a wedding, birthday party, or celebration of life, a fundraiser, or the most fun place to take a class. Support Tess’ by visiting regularly. Make suggestions, tell us what you want from Tess’. Make it your place to be proud to bring your out of town visitors. I am grateful to be part of a journey to create a masterpiece.

I remember the first cooking class we held. These youngsters were so creative decorating their aprons while the pizza baked. Nothing replaces that feeling of joy in bringing those children together to learn a very basic of our lives, no, not pizza, cooking. We need more of this! The County has told us that we can still teach classes, have events, sell “prepackaged” items in the farm market from local vendors, and rent out the kitchen to budding chefs. Now there is a place in our farm market to purchase organic chicken pot pies, and “vegan organic yogurt” thanks to our kitchen rental program.

Tess’ Community Farm Kitchen is located at 8091 Balfour Road in Brentwood. They can be reached at 800-800-5373 or to get more info on classes and events go to communityfarmkitchen.com.

garnishments, lawsuits and foreclosure to discharging second mortgages, lines of credit and income taxes.

Law Office of Michael J. Primus Bankruptcy allows individuals or businesses in financial trouble to have debts forgiven or, in some cases, make payment arrangements. Often “liquidation” or “reorganization” are the words used to sum up the process when you file for bankruptcy. There are several kinds of bankruptcy cases but Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 are the most common. Which option you should choose depends on several factors and it’s a good idea to consult with a lawyer to discuss this complicated matter. Michael Primus of the Law Offices of Michael J. Primus can help. As a bankruptcy lawyer with over twenty years of bankruptcy experience, Michael Primus has devoted his career to helping people with financial problems. A caring person by nature, Michael chose the law, and bankruptcy specifically, in order to help people. Sometimes all it takes is just one additional expense like a dental emergency or an expensive car repair that has people turning to credit cards or payday loans to get through the next month, which can lead to a cycle of charging and trying to catch up. Bankruptcy can help reorganize debts, stop creditor harassment, discharge credit card debt, and everything from stopping

With an extensive knowledge of bankruptcy law, Michael Primus mentors other lawyers and is someone many other lawyers call on when they have problems in court. He says getting a fresh start in life is what he wants his clients to walk away with, after having done business with him. In return, he gets to help people turn their lives around. “Many people assume my work is depressing, but the opposite is true. I fix horrible problems and my clients are so appreciative,” says Michael. Raised in Concord and serving Contra Costa County since 1992, Michael and the professionals at the Law Offices of Michael J. Primus are local people, helping the community. Over the years they have helped thousands of people get a fresh start through bankruptcy and they can help you too. In addition, Michael is top rated by www.lawyers.com, the Better Business Bureau, as well as www. avvo.com. With offices in Antioch, Walnut Creek and Hercules, plus a free 30-minute in-office consultation, you can be on your way to a new start very quickly. For many, filing for bankruptcy can feel devastating. But bankruptcy doesn’t have to be the end. Instead, it can be a new beginning. Call Michael Primus today and get started on your road to financial freedom.

Testimonials He is very personable and knowledgeable at what he does! His staff was helpful with follow through. My husband and I felt totally comfortable in his hands and he made a very difficult time for us a lot less stressful! I would recommend Him and his services without question! – Michelle H. At a time where it seems impossible to get a helping hand and no hope in sight we found Michael Primus. Michael made us feel comfortable and informed of all the necessary steps that we had to take throughout our financial crisis. He is a professional and I consider him a friend. – Eric Michael made the bankruptcy process easy to understand and provided great service, with respect and kindness towards us. I highly recommend Mr. Primus and his knowledgeable staff to help you. – Dave

LAW OFFICES OF MICHAEL PRIMUS

WILL I LOSE MY RETIREMENT IF I FILE BANKRUPTCY? There are many misconceptions about bankruptcy, amongst them is the notion that people lose everything if they file bankruptcy. Fortunately, the bankruptcy laws are designed to give the honest but unfortunate person a second chance. To facilitate that goal, the law allows bankrupt consumers to retain necessities of life (referred to as exemptions in legal terminology) while having debts forgiven. In contrast, corporations and limited liability companies are not entitled to exemptions, and if a corporation or limited liability company files bankruptcy assets are often sold to satisfy debts. Some small corporations are owned entirely by one person which complicates matters, and requires an experienced attorney, if either the person or the corporation plans a bankruptcy.

FINANCIAL & BUSINESS Hilaire Consulting Group (HCG) is a fullservice accounting firm. We can act as your accounting department or provide services a la Carte: payroll, managerial accounting services (Treasurer, Controller, Virtual Chief Financial Officer), financial reporting (profit and loss, balance sheets), audit preparation, budgeting, Federal Compliance, cash flows, accounts payable, contract negotiation. We primarily use QuickBooks (Desktop and Enterprise) and have extensive experience with other products, including MAS 90 and ACCPAC. With our wide-ranging use of secure cloud services (Right Networks, Gusto, Dropbox), we can offer our clients 24/7 access to their company’s financial data from anywhere. We can come to your location or work remotely from our offices. Theresa Hilaire Hogg, J.D., launched HCG in 2002 as a sole proprietor and it has since grown to 4 people. Theresa began with a desire to bring quality accounting services to small businesses, non-profits, and for-profits, allowing those owners and leaders to concentrate on their core activities and

The exemption laws protect Social Security as well as tax deferred retirement accounts and many other assets in and out of bankruptcy. Tax deferred retirement accounts include: 401k plans, 403b plans, 457 deferred compensation accounts, IRA’s, pensions and almost any type of employer or union sponsored retirement. This means non-governmental creditors are prohibited from seizing exempt assets whether or not a bankruptcy is filed.

At the Law Office of Michael Primus we have helped thousands of clients get out of debt, stop wage garnishments, and start fresh through bankruptcy. We offer a free consultation and have offices in Walnut Creek, Antioch, and Hercules.

The law allows, but does not require, consumers to use retirement funds to repay debts. Often in the midst of financial turmoil people consider taking a retirement withdrawal to pay debts and avoid bankruptcy. A retirement withdrawal will usually be considered taxable income for the year the money is taken and can result in additional penalties. Money forgiven through bankruptcy is non-taxable. For some, taking a retirement withdrawal is the best choice but that choice should be made with a clear understanding of all options including bankruptcy and the corresponding tax implications.

opportunities. Theresa worked as a fulltime Controller/Chief Financial Officer at non-profit and for-profit companies for 25 years, gaining in-depth knowledge and experience in keeping those companies financially stable. Her husband Charles joined the company after a 30-year career in the US Coast Guard. We love establishing close working relationships with our clients, gaining a working knowledge of their businesses and helping them in their success. HCG brings in-depth, comprehensive accounting experience to our clients, including non-profits (from one-person to dozens of employees), high-tech startups, churches, charities, small construction companies, and more. We are flexible and responsive to our client’s needs. We want everyone who works with us to know they have been working with accounting professionals – professionals with a deep understanding of the accounting world and provides tools and services to meet our clients’ needs. HCG is always looking to grow our own business while improving service to our clients. The non-profit world is a particular passion of ours. Helping those who seek to make the world a better place makes for very satisfying work that sometimes

does not seem like work at all. (We also assist non-profit clients in the preparation of IRS Form 990). HCG is based in Antioch, with a roster of clients in Oakland, Berkeley, San Francisco and Los Angeles. We help our clients by providing accurate and timely information about the financial status of their businesses. We provide our clients a complete package of services that in turn allows our clients to spend more time achieving their business and personal goals.
