Additional amenities added to Bryte Park: Bench dedicated to Sharl Ann Castorena By Monica Stark

The Tom Sawyer-themed playground that was built by more than 400 community volunteers nearly three years ago celebrated a second phase of improvements on Friday, May 11 with a ribbon cutting and a short performance from the River City High School Band. This second phase is in line with the current Bryte Park Master Plan, which included input from more than 200 residents. The second phase includes: A shade structure protecting the KaBOOM! Playground, a covered picnic and barbecue area, a new AD compliant restroom and water fountain, a fullsized basketball and pickle ball court, a 47-space parking lot with lighting and landscape; street improvements included a new 4-way intersection at Holland Drive and Carrie

Street and a mid-block pedestrian crossing on Carrie Street that connects Alyce Norman Park and Bryte Park. The project was designed and built using Measure K, Park Impact fees, and funds remaining from the playground project. “This is an incredible addition to a park that is in so many ways the heart of our community. This is where the two halves of our northern city come together, Bryte and Broderick, and it’s where so many of our generations of West Sacramentans have made it their daily play, have met each other, have met their partners, have enjoyed to have the chance to raise a family and play and be healthy and active in their community,” Mayor Christopher Cabaldon during the celebration. “It’s one of the largest parks in the region

Dog park etiquette - humans By Michele Townsend

People often talk about their pets like they are their children. We love them, and care for them, reward them and scold them. And because dogs are loving, loyal and emotional beings, they in turn love us and appreciate us. Like with our children, many of us enjoy a visit to the park. And like with our children, some trips go better than others! Some days, the dog might not be feeling social. Some days, the human might not be feeling social. That is the way life goes. If you or your dog are having a day like this, it’s probably not a good day to play at the park. We also

need to keep in mind, that even though our fur babies are our babies, they are dogs. Granted, many of the rules for the dogs mirror the rules for the kids, however some of them are need to be adjusted to the fact that they are different species. My dog and I have visited several dog parks in the Sacramento Valley. One of our favorites is the great big park in Davis. For a while, I was taking my dog to that park every day. My dog often played with a dog that liked to try to grab the other dog’s collar while they were running. My dog learned this action from her, as I had never really given it

I am the first to admit that it looks like he is trying to bite the dog, so if I ever see my dog do this, I am quick to talk to the owner of the other dog, to explain that he picked this game up from another dog, and that he is not attacking them. One good (and sometimes bad) thing about dogs (and kids), is that if they don’t like something that another dog (or kid) is doing, they will make it known immediately!

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, I am a local immigration attorney, in practice for over 30 years. I have advised criminal defense attorneys all over the state for the last 15 years, so I have been able to observe how D.A.s work all over California, at least with regard to immigrants. I can say without hesitation that Yolo County is even worse than Orange County, regarding unjust and anti-immigrant policies. The following is based on my personal knowledge and experience, my discussions with Deputy DAs and Public Defenders and my assistance in the representation in the last case cited. For most of his time in office, Mr. Reisig has refused to assist immigrant victims of serious crimes, including victims of domestic violence, if their cases were “closed.” He refused to certify that

they cooperated with his office, even though they had done so, in order that the immigrant victim could go on to apply for “U” victim of crime status with USCIS (Immigration Service). He claimed “it wasn’t the intent of Congress” despite the fact that USCIS law enforcement guidelines specifically stated that D.A.s could always certify in such cases, despite the fact that the chief law enforcement liaison for these cases at USCIS directly contacted Reisig’s office to tell him he could do so, and despite the fact that most D.A.s prefer waiting until cases are closed to certify victim cooperation. This anti-immigrant stance has harmed many crime victims in Yolo County. Reisig’s office has also refused to consider deportation as an additional

“punishment” for those he charges, and to negotiate pleas with defense attorneys to help lawful permanent residents (green card holders) as well as undocumented immigrants remain qualified to apply for immigration status to remain with their citizen spouses and children in the U.S. Some very minor offenses lead to deportation by the federal government, and/or denial of legal residency, such as writing a bad check, shoplifting, sitting in a park and being under the influence of marijuana, simple possession of a controlled substance (including marijuana). Immigrants will often accept harsher criminal sentences, more time in jail, or even accept a felony “strike” that they haven’t committed, in order to avoid being deported and torn from their families. Reisig’s office has long refused to consider anything related to immigration as a factor in their decisions, stating it would somehow be “unconstitutional” even though the U.S. Supreme Court said otherwise, in 2009, as did the California Supreme Court, even before the federal courts. Mr. Reisig also prosecuted an immigrant moth-

er for abducting her own baby, for leaving the U.S. when the federal government ordered her to leave as her immigration status had expired. The violent father of her baby, who had initially wanted nothing to do with the child, filed for custody after she had left the area and had gone to L.A. to await a flight home to South Korea. When she returned several years later to the U.S. so that her daughter could learn English, she was arrested at the airport, her daughter torn away from her, and she was held in jail without bond and without seeing her 4 year old daughter for over a year and a half – and was ultimately convicted of a misdemeanor. The father, in court, admitted to picking the petite mother of his child up by the neck and throwing her against a wall. The deputy D.A. claimed she “provoked him.” The father was never prosecuted for domestic violence. Finally, some local attorneys fear retaliation from the District Attorney’s office if they speak up in this race. I have been personally told about two months ago, that an attorney who supports Dean Johannson is afraid to endorse him

publicly, for fear of the negative impact it could have on her immigrant crime victim clients who need certification of their cooperation from Mr. Reisig’s office. Noone should fear speaking up regarding the policies and politics of an elected official. Yet here we are.

Dear Editor, Sheriff Prieto has led the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office for 20 years. When issues arise, he deals with them head on. He regularly meets with members of the department, the community, allied agencies, and other elected officials to provide the highest level of service to the people, while also enhancing the safety to the community. children (Ed and Shelly). Following his military service, John learned the plumbing trade and established J&J Plumbing. Eventually his son Ed Yeargin joined the family business. Ed continues to operate J&J Plumbing some 50 years later. John coached local Little League in his younger days, loved to fish Donner Lake, was an avid Giants fan, and a devoted golfer. In recent years some of his best times were spent with his buddies Ralph, Jerry, and Donnie on the Davis Muni golf course. John was a “people person” and loved listening and hearing about the lives of others. He made friends easily. John loved all the nurses and friends he made at Mercy Cardiac Rehab over the last 12 years where he met his good friend James Green. John, with his caring, supportive nature, will be deeply missed by all his family and friends. John is survived by his

When the undersheriff decided to run for the top spot, he initiated his campaign with a smear campaign designed to discredit the hard work and contributions of Sheriff Prieto while denigrating a department he claims is in shambles. If this is truly the case, why has he not, at any point in time over the last eleven years, stood up and said “enough?” The fact is, he enthusiastically supported Sheriff Prieto’s tenure and various campaigns for reelection, and has been an integral member of the department with the moral responsibility of bringing forth any issues of discontent or unfair practices. For the past eleven years, Undersheriff Tom Lopez has not said a word, has not uttered a peep, and has in no meaningful way sought to change a culture he claims to exists. Leadership is about influencing human behavior to achieve the organizational goals which serve the public. Both candidates for the Yolo County Sheriff’s position acknowledge Sheriff Ed Prieto’s myriad of positive changes within the department over the last See Letters, page 8

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 7302727 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site - www.servicelinkASAP. com - for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case: 134014. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. A-4656924 05/16/2018, 05/23/2018, 05/30/2018 May 16 23 30 nl 1798

Despite this, tenured undersheriff claims that morale issues in the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office are one of his focused areas of concern. This belies the question: What has he personally done over the last eleven years to fix an issue he claims exists? How has he influenced those around him for the betterment of the organization? If there were truly issues of low morale, why has he remained silent until now? As the undersheriff, he has the ability and opportunity to affect

There are so many avenues he could have taken over the last eleven years in order to better the department he claims has issues, yet he has remained silent until now. Where was his leadership? The undersheriff has alleged Sheriff Prieto has been complicit in creating a unprofessional culture; however, according to verified court records, obtained through a California Public Records Act Request, Sheriff Prieto was not found guilty in any court proceeding. In fact, the court adjudicated each cases in favor of the Yolo County Sheriff’s Department. In the

one instance where a complainant received an award, Sheriff Prieto was dismissed from the case as a respondent. The insurance carrier, representing Yolo County, then decided to pay off the complainant, as a way of reducing the financial drain on Yolo County which would accompany ongoing court proceedings. Undersheriff Lopez has supported, endorsed and testified in favor of Sheriff Prieto. Interesting, now the undersheriff’s testimony is different. One has to wonder….why?

To honor Sharyl, City of West Sacramento officials dedicated a memorial bench to mark her impact to the community. Sharyl’s husband Ed read the inscription that was placed onto a bench that sits near the playground. “Sharyl Ann Castorena. Dedicated community activist to improve Broder-

Letters to the Editor Gary Sandy for Yolo County Supervisor District #3

Dear Editor: I am writing today to express my support for Gary Sandy for Yolo County Supervisor District #3 which represents parts of the Broderick and Bryte area. I have known Gary for 30 years, and beyond a doubt he is the best qualified for the position. He has excellent credentials and many years of experience as former Mayor of Woodland, Woodland Community College Trustee, former Woodland Parks and Recreation Commissioner, public education advocate and current Project Manager for Office of the

Chancellor at the University of California, Davis. He is prepared to serve Woodland effective. Because of Gary’s strong commitment to Yolo County it is easy to understand why he has the support of the majority of the Washington School District Board of Trustees and Woodland’s elected leaders representing the city and school board along with many former elected officials and community leaders. He is a proven leader that listens, develops partnerships, and will work to solve complex issues that may come before the Yolo County Board of Supervisors. Gary’s recent endorsement from the Sacramento Bee sums it up, “…a female voice and perspective would be beneficial.

That’s true, but it doesn’t overrule who is the best suited to serve. He (Gary) will be a conscientious and thoughtful leader for Yolo County.” I most admire Gary for his selfless volunteer work, his honesty, reliability, and willing to put the long hours needed to be an effective Supervisor. Gary exemplifies fairness and thoughtfulness and cares for all communities. Yolo County needs Gary to continue to enhance and promote an atmosphere of openness in county government. I respectfully ask you in join me in support and vote for Gary Sandy he’s our best choice to represent us in Yolo County Supervisor District 3. Sincerely, Jesse Ortiz, Woodland resident Yolo County Superintendent of Schools

Marshall Tuck will put students first Dear Editor, As a local education leader, elected in 2014 to serve on the Yolo County School Board, I know firsthand that our public schools need big changes to give all students access to the education they deserve. Our schools need increased and equitable funding to help close persistent achievement gaps. We need to continue the focus on local control, allowing school boards, school leaders and parents the freedom to identify practices that work and continue to innovate in our public schools. I believe we need a leader as the State Superintendent of Public Instruction who has led a public

school system that has delivered life altering outcomes for kids. Therefore, I write this letter in support of Marshall Tuck for the position of California State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Marshall’s vision for California schools where he intends to put the interests of students above all is a compelling one. Far too often, we allow the interests of adults to drive our education policy. Focusing on our students first and foremost is critical to improving outcomes for California’s students. The president of the Association of California School Administrators says, “Every one of his guiding principles maintains the objective of prioritizing students.” Marshall was the founding CEO of the nonprof-

it Partnership for Los Angeles Schools, a collaboration between Los Angeles city government and L.A. Unified School District to advance nearly 20 struggling schools serving 15,000 students. Under his leadership, the partnership increased four-year graduation rates by more than 60 percent and had the highest academic improvement among California’s school systems with more than 10,000 students. He helped create 10 new public charter high schools in some of Los Angeles’ poorest neighborhoods. California schools are in need of new leadership, a man who truly will put the interests of our students first. Sincerely, Matt Taylor Trustee Area 1, Yolo County Board of Education
