Retirement from Newark City Council as councilmember and mayor for over 33 years and his alter ego, executive director of the Ohlone College Foundation for the past six years has caused a ripple of shock through both communities and although both have been beneficiaries of Dave’s fortitude, creative inclinations and direct approach, Smith had decided it was time for other pursuits. The mayor says, “I’m a

pretty diverse guy and have a lot of interests in different things.” As the second longest serving mayor of the United States, Dave has no regrets and has often told the longest serving mayor, Joe Riley of Charleston, South Carolina, “a perfect Southern gentleman” that he doesn’t mind “being ‘Avis’ to your ‘Hertz.’” Citing an overflowing “bucket list,” Dave, soon to be age 66, says he would like to

concentrate on becoming a better musician, improving his golf game, and spending more time

he joyous shout of “YOWZA!” has been a trademark of Newark for over 33 years. Symbolic of an abundance of joy, enthusiasm and optimism, it’s a perfect fit for the man who has led and promoted the City through three-plus decades - good times and tumultuous alike. David Smith embodies the heart and soul of Newark: focused, resolute and brimming with energy. Relaxing in the hilltop office of the Ohlone College Foundation overlooking the Fremont campus, the easy manner of this man from humble beginnings in the upper peninsula of Michigan reflects the virtues of honest endeavors that are well recognized by his constituents and all others who have had the pleasure of his company, no matter how brief or extensive.

Winter Can Be Hard for People with COPD and Asthma Tips for Staying Healthy During the Cold and Flu Season Winter can be a difficult time for people with respiratory ailments like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Cold air can often trigger asthma symptoms and staying healthy during the cold and flu season can be a challenge. “Cold air can cause the airways to constrict, making it harder to breathe, particularly for people with asthma,” said Rose Stortz, a respiratory therapist who co-coordinates the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program at Washington Hospital. “People are also more likely to come in contact with germs that can make them sick during the winter months.” She said most people spend more time indoors during the winter. When people are in close contact with each other, it makes it easier for germs to spread, she explained. It’s hard to avoid coming in contact with people who are sick, particularly during the holidays when a lot of people are at the malls and grocery stores. “Often what we see with our patients is that they are around more children during the holidays, visiting with family and attending social gatherings,” said respiratory therapist Sherry Harrington, who co-coordinates the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program with Stortz. “Close contact with children increases the risk of getting sick. Kids pick up a lot of germs at daycare and school.” She said most of the time when a healthy person gets a cold, they will experience about a 10 percent decline in health. But for people with COPD who are not in optimal health, a cold can turn into a respiratory infection and that 10 percent decline can cause serious problems. Staying Healthy People with asthma and COPD need to take good care of themselves so they

People with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) need to take good care of themselves so they can stay healthy during the winter months, according to respiratory therapists Rose Stortz (left) and Sherry Harrington (right), co-coordinators of the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program at Washington Hospital. Both respiratory therapists agree that the most important step people can take to stay well is to wash their hands frequently.

can stay healthy during the winter months. Both respiratory therapists agreed that the most important step people can take to stay well is to wash their hands frequently. “You need to wash off the germs so you don’t get sick,” Stortz said. “Cold and flu germs get on your hands and they can make you sick if you touch your mouth, nose, and eyes. So when you are out in public touching a number of surfaces, keep your hands away from your face.” It’s also very important for people with lung diseases like asthma and COPD to get vaccinated against influenza (flu) and pneumonia, Harrington added. Both the flu and pneumonia can be life-threatening for people with respiratory problems. People with COPD and asthma should have a written action plan that

spells out their treatment regimen, according to the respiratory therapists, and take their medications as prescribed. “If you don’t have an action plan, you need to work with your physician to create one,” Harrington said. “If you have one, it may need to be updated for winter.” Stortz said people with asthma should use a peak flow meter regularly, which monitors the ability to exhale, so they can see how well they are breathing. If their breathing gets worse, it may be an early warning sign they are getting sick. “People with COPD and asthma should see their doctor as soon as they see any signs and symptoms of illness,” Harrington added. “The problem is people wait until they are really sick.” During the cold winter months, it’s important to dress for the weather. Stortz suggested wrapping a scarf around

your face when it’s cold so you don’t have to breathe in the cold air. If you have a child with asthma, make sure they dress appropriately and stay warm, she added. “You may want to stay away from crowds if possible to avoid coming in contact with people who are sick,” Harrington said. “Fires may be something else you want to avoid. While a warm fire in the fireplace is nice, smoke can trigger symptoms for people with respiratory diseases.” Stortz said it’s also important to protect your immune system by eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of rest, and avoiding stress. “Basically you need to focus on your health and keep your disease under control,” she added. “Pay attention to your body, follow your treatment plan, and protect yourself against illness.” Education and Support Washington Hospital’s Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program can help people with COPD and asthma learn how to better manage their disease so they can stay healthier. The program is twice a week for eight weeks and participants work one-on-one with a respiratory therapist. The Better Breathing for Life Club offers education and support to people with all types of lung diseases as well as their caregivers and loved ones. The group meets on the fourth Wednesday of every month from 1 to 2:45 p.m. Meetings are held at the Conrad E. Anderson, M.D. Auditorium at 2500 Mowry Avenue (Washington West), in Fremont.

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

Board moves to redraw District boundaries SUBMITTED BY CLARENCE JOHNSON The AC Transit Board of Directors will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, December 14, 2011, to solicit input on a proposal to redefine the wards from which directors are elected. The hearing will be held at 5 p.m. in the 2nd floor Board Room at AC Transit headquarters, 1600 Franklin Street, Oakland. Five of the seven Directors are elected from distinct wards; the other two are elected atlarge. Federal and state laws require AC Transit to adjust its ward boundaries every 10 years to equalize populations following the completion of the federal census. To aid in the redistricting process, the agency’s Redistricting Committee and staff developed proposals that were vetted at a series of outreach meetings in October 2011. Community members, elected officials and interested parties were encouraged to attend the meetings and offer their views and recommendations.

The proposed boundaries, with descriptions, maps and demographics, were displayed at these meetings for public comment. The entire redistricting plans can be found at www.actransit.org (click on “Ward Redistricting”). The public was also able offer input and request information about the process and the proposed plans by emailing districtsecretary@actransit.org. The District’s wards are available online at www.redrawca.org (click on “See Local Lines” and select Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District). At this site, the public was able to draw communities of interest, draft plans and submit them to the District Secretary. Finally, at the public hearing on Wednesday, December 14, 2011, the public will have another opportunity to express their views on the proposed new boundaries directly to the Board. Additionally, public comment on the proposed Redistricting Plan can be made in writing (by letter, facsimile, or email) and must be received no later than Monday, December 12, 2011 at 5:00 p.m. in time

to be copied and provided to the Board for review. Written comments, which will receive the same attention as verbal comments at the public hearing, should be addressed to the AC Transit Board of Directors, 1600 Franklin Street, Oakland, California, 94612; by facsimile at (510) 891-7157; or by email to districtsecretary@actransit.org. Comments may also be submitted by voicemail at (510) 891-7201. To leave comments in Spanish, call (510) 8917291, or in Chinese, call (510) 891-7292. Following the hearing, the Board may vote on a final Redistricting Plan for the ward boundaries. For more information, visit www.actransit.org Wednesday, Dec 14 AC Transit Board Meeting 5 p.m. 2nd Floor Board Room AC Transit Headquarters 1600 Franklin Street, Oakland www.actransit.org

BY ISABELLA OHLMEYER Do you feel inspired to give back this holiday season to those in need? The Bay Area Ghostbusters along with Waggin Tails Pet Supplies are encouraging that holiday spirit in hopes of pet supply donations during their K-9 Operation Military Care Package Drive. The first year drive is occurring now until January 5 inside the Waggin Tails store location at 32160 Dyer Street in Union City during store hours. Individuals are invited to drop off pet supplies for the military dogs in the Middle East, donate money to the operation, purchase pet supplies at the Waggin Tails store and donate them, or even drop off clothing and/or other essential supplies for humans serving in the military. The Waggin Tails Pet Supplies store carries high quality brands of pet food, flea and tick medications, veterinarian-grade vitamins as well as an array of toys for pets.

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

The Bay Area Ghostbusters is a non-profit group who dress like the characters from the movie "Ghostbusters" in order to help raise awareness and money for Bay Area non-profit groups. They do not accept any form of compensation for their awareness efforts; the Ghostbusters simply arrive at events out of the kindness of their hearts to help others in need of assistance. William Prince, an employee at Waggin Tails and member of the Bay Area Ghostbusters, is a Desert Storm Veteran, who worked with military working dogs, which triggered his interest in beginning this drive. Witnessing it first-hand, Prince realized that these dogs seemed to always be in need of supplies. The idea of a care package drive also came about for Prince as he watched a documentary called "War Dogs – America's Forgotten Heroes." In an interview, Prince stated that, “many pet stores around the holidays focus on

the rescue groups in the area who do need help, however it seems that the military working dogs and their handlers are never mentioned in holiday fundraising events.” When approached with the idea, Waggin Tails felt that this was a worthwhile cause and decided to pursue it. Waggin Tails is also taking 10 percent off any supplies purchased for the care packages. A detailed list of the supplies needed for the dogs in the military include: warming mats, medium and large sizes of K-9 boots, K-9 grooming tools, nail clippers, sleeping mats, jerky, beef, rice, ear wash, and advantix. Supplies for the dog handlers include: coffee, tea, sugar, instant foods, lemonade mix, power bars, tuna, and canned foods. Military dogs are deployed worldwide to help safeguard military bases and to detect bombs before they inflict harm. U.S. military working dogs are continued on page 28

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

Mortgage investigation alliance SUBMITTED BY OFFICE OF THE CALIFORNIA ATTORNEY GENERAL Attorneys General Kamala D. Harris of California and Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada announced on December 7, 2011, that their states have entered into a joint investigation alliance designed to assist homeowners who are victims of misconduct and fraud in the mortgage industry. California and Nevada will combine investigative resources, including litigation strategies, information and evidence gathered through their respective ongoing investigations, assisting each state as it pursues independent prosecutions. This alliance links the offices' civil and criminal enforcement teams, facilitating the full, fair and adequate investigation of wrongdoing in the two states, which have experienced similar foreclosure and mortgage fraud crises. "The mortgage crisis is a man-made disaster that has taken a heavy toll on the country but saved its worst for California and Nevada," said California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris. "The mortgage crisis is a law enforcement matter and we shall prosecute to hold culprits accountable and protect homeowners who are targets of fraud. I’m delighted California and Nevada are entering into this alliance to leverage the best results for our investigations and look forward to forging similar collaboration with other states." continued on page

"I’m pleased to join forces with General Harris to fight against fraudulent mortgage and foreclosure practices that continue to devastate lives, homes and the economy in Nevada and California," said Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto. "This strong partnership will allow our states to make an even more concerted effort to hold fraud perpetrators accountable and ensure law-abiding homeowners receive justice." By most objective measures, California and Nevada have been hardest hit by the nation's foreclosure crisis. In October 2011, Nevada and California ranked first and second, respectively, for the percentage of their housing units that entered the foreclosure process, reflecting a parallel surge in foreclosures in the two states. One in every 180 Nevada properties entered the foreclosure process in October, and one in every 243 California homes received a filing that month. In 2010, California led the nation with a total of 546,669 foreclosure filings (4 percent of the state's housing units), while Nevada led the nation with 9.4 percent of its homes receiving a foreclosure filing (totaling 106,160 units). The crisis in these Western states is similar because both share a foreclosure system in which a bank can foreclose on a borrower's home without court oversight, also called "non-judicial foreclosure." The collective result has created a rich opportunity for predators, leading both states to make mortgagerelated law enforcement action a top priority. In May 2011, Attorney continued on 17

BY ISABELLA OHLMEYER Mark your calendars for the California School for the Blind’s Annual Winter Concert titled, “My Fingers Play the Things I Cannot Speak” on December 14 and15 at the school’s campus in Fremont. The Winter and Spring concerts began in 1981, and were casual and informal with few students involved. Since then, the involvement and formal nature of the concerts has increasingly grown and are now events that friends of the students, family members, and the general public look forward to viewing each year. The event is free and is a great opportunity to see young musicians at work. Approximately 35 students are involved in the Winter

Concert each year, eager to share their talent with the audience. The Mission Ensemble Band and the CSB (California School for the Blind) Jazz Ensemble will perform a wide range of music from the past and present including world music, jazz, and pop, and the percussion ensemble will play music from Nigeria, Brazil and Cuba. Along with performing in their school concert, The California School for the Blind Jazz Ensemble has been invited to perform in Sacramento for the State Department of Education’s Annual Holiday Party. Part of the California School for the Blind’s curriculum for over one-hundred years, The Glee Club will also participate in the concert. The

General Harris formed a Mortgage Fraud Strike Force, comprising nearly 40 attorneys and investigators, that has launched a wide series of investigations and litigation. The Mortgage Fraud Strike Force has instigated legal actions in cases including a fraudulent multi-million dollar "mass joinder" lawsuit, operated by the law firm Kramer and Kaslow, and the arrests in early December 2011 of three top officers of a Stockton real estate company who took thousands of dollars in up-front loan modification fees and made false promises to assist struggling Central Valley homeowners lower their mortgage payments. In 2007, Attorney General Masto formed the Nevada Mortgage Fraud Strike Force that launched a wide series of investigations and litigation into areas including violations of the law related to mortgage lending, servicing and foreclosure practices and the creation, rating, marketing, sale and management of mortgage backed securities. The Nevada Mortgage Fraud Strike Force has taken action against predatory "mortgage rescue" companies and individuals claiming to offer services to stop foreclosures. Last month, the Strike Force announced the indictments of Gerri Sheppard and Gary Trafford, who led a massive robo-signing scheme which filed tens of thousands of fraudulent documents. Nevada is also suing Bank of America and its subsidiaries, including Countrywide, for violations of a Consent Judgment for mortgage servicing and mortgage origination irregularities. The Mortgage Investigation Alliance is the product of weeks of discussion between Attorneys General Harris and Masto regarding the most effective and efficient means of achieving justice for their respective states.

SUBMITTED BY RICK LA PLANTE A fund has been established to give the New Haven community the opportunity to assist the family of a ConleyCaraballo High School (CCHS) student who was killed in a train accident. Enrique Cisneros, a CCHS senior whose mother, Mary Rodriguez, is a campus monitor at Alvarado Middle School, was killed at about 11:30 a.m. after being struck by a freight train as he walked on the tracks near Smith Street, according to the Alameda County Coroner. Union City Police called the incident “a tragic accident,” noting that the victim was wearing headphones and walking with his back to the train, while on his way to work at Texas Roadhouse. When school resumed, grief counselors were on campus at Conley-Caraballo High School, as well as at Alvarado Middle, where the victim’s younger brother is a student, and at James Logan High, where the victim had many friends. A fund to be used to help the family pay expenses has been set up at Bank of America, 31800 Alvarado Blvd., Union City. To donate, send a check and include the notation “Enrique Cisneros, Account No. 1148018198” on the memo line.

SUBMITTED BY BRANDI CHILDRESS The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) is partnering once again with the United States Marine Corps to “Stuff the VTA Bus”! The annual Toys for Tots Drive located next to Christmas in the Park in downtown San Jose will take place on Saturday, December 10 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The goal is to collect as many unwrapped, new toys as possible for children who may not expect to receive a gift this year. “We look forward to this event every year,” said VTA General Manager Michael Burns. “Our community always shows overwhelming generosity through toy and cash donations, customarily outdoing themselves from previous years.” “For the past 15 years or so, VTA has provided a bus to support our mission to fill that bus to capacity with toys for needy children,” said Sergeant Daniel P. Best. “I have coordinated this event many of those years – one of which VTA had to bring out a second bus because of all the toys we received. We hope to do that again this year!”

Water District says milky-appearing water is a harmless phenomenon SUBMITTED BY FRANK JAHN If you live in the Tri-City area, you may notice a slightly “milky” appearance to your tap water beginning in early December. This interesting and harmless phenomenon is known as “entrained air.” Air entrainment is not caused by leaking pipes or water mains. Because water in the distribution system is under pressure, water will shoot out of a leak – nothing can get sucked in. “The source of the entrained air will be the water which ACWD purchases from the San Francisco Public Utilities

Commission (SFPUC),” said Walt Wadlow, ACWD General Manager. “The SFPUC is going to switch from the usual Hetch Hetchy supply to source water which will be treated at the Sunol Valley Water Treatment Plant. In the process of changing facilities and increasing the rate of treatment of local reservoir water, air may become dissolved in the water that is delivered to our area. Despite its initially milky appearance, the water will still be perfectly safe to drink.” Because the SFPUC supplies water to many municipalities throughout the Bay Area, Tri-City residents will not be the

only ones to experience the entrained air phenomenon. SFPUC officials estimate that the issues creating the entrained air will be resolved by the week of January 7, 2012. According to ACWD water quality personnel, entrained air can cause water to have a milky appearance. The air is dissolved under pressure in the water system, much like carbon dioxide in a bottle of soda. When the tap is turned on, the pressure is released, which allows bubbles to appear, just as removing a cap from a soda bottle causes the soda to fizz. If the glass of water is allowed to stand for a few moments, the air bubbles

will rise to the surface and the water will clear. If your water has a milky appearance, ACWD water quality specialists encourage you to confirm that the phenomenon you are experiencing is entrained air by performing a simple experiment. Rinse out a glass twice and then fill it with cold tap water. After a few moments the water should begin to clear, from the bottom of the glass to the top, as the bubbles rise to the surface. If the water does not clear, you should call ACWD at (510) 668-6500. For more information, please visit www.acwd.org.

Anti-tax groups counter Brown's tax hike measure BY JUDY LIN ASSOCIATED PRESS SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP), Dec 06 - Just a day after Gov. Jerry Brown released his tax initiative proposal, anti-tax advocates announced Tuesday they have filed their own counter measure seeking to restrain government spending. The California Taxpayers Association, Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association and Small Business Action Committee filed a proposed ballot measure with the state attorney general's office that would limit spending after the state makes a full recovery from the recession. Like the governor's initiative, the spending cap proposal would appear on the November 2012 ballot if supporters collect 807,615 valid voter signatures.

“We need a mechanism to make sure that the drunken sailor DNA of our Legislature doesn't kick in, and that we put that money away and we use it for debt reduction,” said John Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis group. The measure is just one of many complications Brown faces as he tries to increase taxes on the rich and raise the statewide sales tax. The Democratic governor and his labor allies want to ask voters to restore billions of dollars cut from public schools, universities and public safety. His proposed initiative, filed Monday, would temporarily increase taxes on the wealthy, starting with individuals who make more than $250,000, and raise the statewide sales tax by half a cent, to 7.75 percent.

The proposal would raise about $7 billion a year for five years. Republicans and conservatives want to impose a spending cap that uses excess money to pay down debt. The competing measures could offer a stark choice for California voters next year. Brown is echoing the sentiments of the Occupy Wall Street movement to tax the rich, but organizers of the protests have criticized the governor's plan, saying it would hurt students and working Californians who would also have to pay higher sales taxes. Brown also could face several competing tax initiatives from groups that want to raise taxes even higher. A coalition led by California Federation of Teachers and Courage Campaign filed a tax initiative seeking to raise per-

sonal income taxes only on individuals who make $1 million or more annually. Attorney Molly Munger, the daughter of Charles Munger, a longtime financial partner of Warren Buffett, is leading a separate initiative that would impose a sliding scale income tax hike to raise $10 billion for California schools. Last month the Think Long Committee for California, funded by billionaire Nicolas Burggruen, proposed a plan to raise $10 billion a year by expanding the sales tax to include services while cutting income taxes. Brown was in Hollywood on Tuesday to help Universal Studios announce plans to build a new Harry Potter attraction that officials say will create more than 1,000 jobs. His

spokesman, Gil Duran, said the governor hasn't had a chance to review the competing ballot measure proposal. The governor released an open letter to the people of California saying he wanted to go directly to voters because he does not want to get bogged down in partisan gridlock in the Legislature, where he failed to reach a tax compromise earlier this year as the state faced a $26.6 billion budget deficit. “The stark truth is that without new tax revenues, we will have no other choice but to make deeper and more damaging cuts to schools, universities, public safety and our courts,” Brown wrote. Proponents of the spending cap said they believe voters are more likely to support restraincontinued on page 23

ing government spending than tax increases. Should voters support both the spending cap and Brown's tax increase, Coupal said it would allow state government to spend more on schools until the cap is reached. After that, money would be used to pay down debt. California is currently carrying $81.2 billion in outstanding bonds, according to the state treasurer's office. “We believe it has been outof-control spending that has created the budget problems in California. The Legislature and special interests have no desire in controlling spending,” said Joel Fox, president of the Small

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

Business Action Committee. Fox said Democrats who control a majority in the state Legislature deliberately delayed a vote on a rainy day fund and spending cap that was supposed to appear on the 2012 ballot. “They moved the measure to 2014 but no one's fooled. The ultimate goal of that delay is to eventually kill the measure,” Fox said. California already has a spending limit, but anti-tax groups want to make updates, saying the current limit has grown ineffective because it is set to the spending level in 1986-87, when the state had a

Jordis Moore joins Fremont Bank as Senior Trust Officer SUBMITTED BY LEE DAWSON Fremont Bank announced today that Jordis Moore has been named senior trust officer. In this role, Moore will be responsible for managing the general trust administration for the bank’s wealth management and trust accounts. Moore will also serve on key fiduciary committees and be involved in the review and analysis of trust documents. “We are very pleased to welcome Jordis to Fremont Bank and to our wealth management team. Her trust administration and financial services experience will be a tremendous asset to our clients,” said Fremont Bank’s Director of Financial Services Ron Flaiani. Moore brings more than ten years of experience in trust administration to Fremont Bank, serving most recently as a trust administrator II at Wells Fargo Bank in Long Beach. Moore is a licensed attorney in California and worked five years in estate planning and probate in Marina del Rey. She received her B.A. in English Literature from UCLA and received her J.D. from Southwestern University School of Law.

$31.2 billion budget. The new proposal would set base spending to the 2010-11 budget, which was $91.5 billion, and allow it to grow no faster than population and inflation growth. California's general fund spending now stands at $86 billion. The proposed initiative would direct excess funds to primarily paying down debt. Currently, half of the state's extra cash is supposed to go to schools while the other half is refunded to taxpayers. That has happened only once in 1987 under Gov. George Deukmejian, when taxpayers were given back $1.1 billion.

GOP not worried about convention protests, weather BY MITCH STACY ASSOCIATED PRESS TAMPA, Fla. (AP), Dec 06 - Republican National Convention planners on Tuesday played down concerns about protests and potentially stormy or steamy weather as they provided the media with a glimpse of plans for next summer's event. The Aug. 27-30 convention, which will select the GOP presidential nominee, will be the first political convention in Florida since Miami Beach hosted both party conventions in 1972. The 2012 Republican convention will happen during Atlantic hurricane season, but if planners are overly concerned about a storm disrupting the party, they aren't letting on. “You always have contingencies for everything,” said convention CEO Bill Harris, who has participated in planning for 10 previous Republican continued on page 35

Little League Ticket Lottery SUBMITTED BY STEVE BARR

E

ach year, Little League International provides an opportunity for Little League fans to receive tickets to the Little League Baseball World Series Championship game through the Little League Baseball World Series Ticket Lottery. The 2012 World Series Ticket Lottery is being conducted online with all submissions being collected through Little League’s website: www.LittleLeague.org. Ticket seekers are asked to complete the Little League World Series Ticket Lottery Entry Form, available at: http://www.littleleague.org/media/2012WSTick ets.htm. In past years, the Little League Baseball World Series Ticket Lottery requests were mailed to Little League International requesting up to four tickets for the World Series title game. From those requests, the winners were drawn at random. This is the second year online submissions have replaced the mailed requests. The random selection process will continue. “The World Series Ticket Lottery has always been popular, but the move of the lottery online last year allowed many more Little League fans access to the lottery,” Scott Rosenberg, Little League International’s Director of Public Relations, said. “The number of people who showed interest in the lottery last year was the highest it has ever been. Now, with a few key strokes, Little League fans around the world can enter the lottery for a chance to receive up to four tickets to the 2012 Little

League Baseball World Series Championship Game in South Williamsport, on Aug. 26.” Lottery winners will receive a maximum of four tickets for the Little League Baseball World Championship Game. Little League International will accept all electronic World Series Ticket Lottery entries until March 31, 2012. Requests received by telephone, fax, mail and e-mail will not be accepted. As always, there is never any admission charged at the Little League Baseball World Series. Parking also is free. In April, Little League International will notify all Ticket Lottery winners. Individuals receiving tickets must pick up their tickets at the “will call” window at Lamade Stadium during the week prior to the World Series, or during the Series. “It’s important to remember, even if someone does not receive tickets for the World Championship Game, they still will be able to attend and watch the game from the terraced hills at Lamade Stadium,” Mr. Rosenberg said. “Tickets are never required for the terraced hills. All you need to do is arrive and find a place to sit. Many people bring a blanket or lawn chairs to make a day of it, and it’s a great place for a family outing. “Seating for the preliminary games in most areas of Lamade Stadium and Volunteer Stadium is first-come, firstserved,” Mr. Rosenberg said. “Although we have not experienced lengthy delays because of enhanced security measures in the last few years, we suggest if you plan to sit in the stadiums, you arrive early.” Individual game passes may

be distributed upon entering either stadium during some games, to assist World Series ushers in controlling crowd size. These passes are not available in advance and will be distributed only by ushers prior to the respective games. The World Series tournament begins on Aug. 16. Games are played each day through Aug. 26, with the exception of Friday Aug. 24, which is a scheduled “off” day. The specific schedule of games will be released during National Little League Week (the week of June 11-17), which was proclaimed by both President Dwight D. Eisenhower and President John F. Kennedy. The 16 teams in the Little League Baseball World Series will reach Williamsport at the end of the world’s largest elimination tournament. The Little League International Tournament begins on July 1, and will feature more than 16,000 games over the following 45 days to determine the 16 finalists. Last year, a record 414,905 fans attended the Little League Baseball World Series. Souvenir tickets for the terraced hill seating are available by writing to: Attention: Souvenir Terrace Tickets Little League International PO Box 3485 539 U.S. Route 15 Hwy. Williamsport, PA 17701 Requests for these souvenir tickets must include a stamped, self-addressed envelope. These souvenir tickets will be mailed in early August.

TheatreWorks’ “The Secret Garden” stars Fremont teens BY CHINMAI RAMAN Aspiring actors are always looking for their big break, and for Andrew Apy and Rachel Sue of Fremont, this is exactly what they got. Andrew, 12, and Rachel, 13, are both taking part in their first adult main stage production – “The Secret Garden” – at TheatreWorks, the nationally acclaimed Andrew Apy

the Beast,” and “Willy Wonka Jr.” – only this time as Charlie Bucket. Having played many roles from famous stories, when asked what his dream role would be, Andrew responded that he would like to play Evan in “13.” He has studied at Broadway Workshop in New York, and the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco.

theatre of Silicon Valley. Both are alumni of Fremont’s StarStruck Theatre. The theatre promotes performing arts among youth while emphasizing key qualities such as teamwork and “a greater sense of self in each of [their] students.” From these roots, the local youngsters have jumped leaps and bounds to landing their first roles in a main stage production. They also get to be a part of a classic story that is the winner of three Tony awards for excellence in theatre. The musical is based on the novel “The Secret Garden” by Frances Hodgson Burnett and follows the transformation of an orphaned English girl when she goes to live with her uncle and discovers a hidden garden. Andrew Apy began his acting career with a role as Mike TV when his class at school had to perform “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” Since then, he has starred in youth theatre productions such as “Les Misérables,” “Beauty and

Rachel Sue

tion to acting, he won the 2010 “Sing Your Heart Out” competition in Milpitas, and has been a soloist in several youth choirs. In “The Secret Garden” Andrew will share the role of Colin, a young troublemaker and a central character. Rachel Sue began acting after watching a performance at Ohlone College and wanting to do the same herself. Through StarStruck Theatre, she has performed such roles as Belle in “Beauty and the Beast Jr.,” Amaryllis in “The Music Man,” and Young Cosette

from “Les Misérables.” “I was really nervous, because... it was my first time at a professional company,” she says about auditioning for “The Secret Garden,” but Rachel must have been great, because it got her the part of the main protagonist, young orphan Mary Lennox. Courtney Stokes, who was also seen in StarStruck productions as a child, will be performing in “The Secret Garden” as well, appearing in the role of Martha, the maid. She has participated in such productions as “Snapshots,” “Into the Woods” (as Little Red), “A Little Night Music,” and “Jane Eyre.” She graduated with a BFA in Musical Theatre from UC Irvine, and currently lives in New York City. You can cheer on Rachel, Andrew, Courtney and many other great actors and actresses at performances of “The Secret Garden” at the Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto, running now through December 31.

fishing and with his wife, Marsha, and family including six grandchildren and a great-grandchild. His vacation home in Arnold will get more use now too. His first order of business will be to clean up a long neglected home office and garage. Following a “moratorium” on additional organizational responsibilities, the refrain of “YOWZA!” will ultimately return to the Newark scene as the Smith family has no intention of leaving the area. As a young boy growing up in Laurium, Michigan, life was not easy for Smith, but his strong spirit prevailed, even with the loss of his father when Dave was only six years old. The family was left in 1952 with “an old car and enough money to put him in the ground… that was about it.” Those in the small community were hardy, exemplified by another product of the town, Norte Dame Football legend, George “The Gipper” Gipp, immortalized by Knute Rockne’s famous speech to “Win just one for the Gipper.” Smith jokes that people in that part of the country traveled to Green Bay during the winter to find relief from the cold. Life was tough for the Smith family – Mom, Dave and his younger sister - in the small copper mining village, but strength of body and character were at

the heart and soul of area inhabitants, mostly immigrants who knew how to handle hardship and hard labor. Smith’s Finnish roots instilled core values that have endured throughout his life. With little money and his mother confined to a wheelchair two years after his father died, the car could not be driven, resulting in many long walks to buy groceries

and supplies, Dave never thought of himself or his family as poor although “I had to grow up really fast.” His mother would describe what was needed and how much things should cost and then Dave, pulling a sled in the winter and wagon in the summer, would

denied only two activities – the girl’s honorary literary society and the future nurses club. “I was involved in everything else and lettered in football, track and played intramural basketball, participated in the band (trombone), student band conductor in my senior year, stu-

travel to whichever store or stores carried those supplies. “Mom would check in the groceries and if I came in with the wrong change or product, I was going back to the store.” Dave quickly learned which cashiers were best at giving the correct change! The old coal-burning furnace that burned lump coal required crumpled newspaper and kindling. His uncle helped the family by felling maple trees then allowing the wood to season during the summer. During the fall, pickup truckloads of wood would be stacked in the basement to provide kindling for starting the coal furnace in winter. Each morning, the fire would need to be restarted to warm the house and heat water. “I thought I died and gone to heaven when we bought a coal stoker.” Encouraged by his mother and aunts and uncles, Dave valued education and involvement in activities around him. Expectations were high, but he was up to the challenge. In high school, he was

dent council, competitive forensics.” Smith characterizes his formative years as “a great upbringing.” My high school graduating class of ’63 was a very close group; we get together every year.” Michigan Tech University, although only 13 miles away, presented challenges since the six-person carpool had to leave early enough for the first class for any of the carpoolers and leave following the last class for the group. “I switched majors four times and still graduated in four years… that wasn’t easy. I was also an ROTC jock and Cadet Colonel, the highest rank as a unit commander.” Dave began his occupational career with Ethyl Visquine, the plastics division of Ethyl Corporation that manufactured the lead anti-knock additive (tetra ethyl) for gasoline. The plastics division made polyethylene film used for food packaging, plastic bottles and developed the exterior coating for disposable baby continued on page 33

diapers… demand skyrocketed! As part of a group of engineers that studied work flows and developed efficient methods of manufacturing, plant managers around the country were clamoring for industrial engineers and Dave, who had worked on a project for the manager of the Fremont facility, was asked to work there full time. In 1968, Smith moved to Fremont. Smith reminisces, “Lucky Dave got to come to Fremont to work at a factory on Blacow Road just north of the railroad tracks between Central and Thornton.” The area was much different then and company athletic teams were very competitive. He remembers, “They would recruit workers for the factory based on how well they could play softball!” Dave Smith and Alan Nagy were presidents of Junior Chamber of Commerce (Jaycee) chapters in Fremont and Newark respectively. Very competitive, they were involved in community ac-

tivities and traveled throughout the state. Both considered running for a top spot of District Governor but after discussing the situation, decided that Dave would run for office and Al would be his campaign manager; a pattern to be repeated in the future. When asked if he would move to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to run the Industrial Engineering Group for the entire division, Dave said “yes” and left Fremont. A year and half later, in 1974, he was asked by a company executive if he was interested in returning to Fremont to run the plant. “I leapt across the desk and shook his hand and said ‘Take me, I’m yours!’… I have been here ever since.” He settled in Newark and reestablished his relationship with Al Nagy and the local Jaycees. However, time had passed and opportunities for advancement with that organization had changed. continued on page 34

lenged employees to increase their effectiveness. He told them, “I would really like to see is for this plant to thrive the way I know it can.” Setting a high goal of productivity and safety that would be extremely difficult to achieve – from worst to first and 365 days without an injury - Dave felt comfortable to wager that on day 366, he and his personnel manager would perch atop a “flagpole.” No mention was made of weather conditions. The employees came through and in January 1978, in the midst of his mayoral campaign and a torrential rainstorm, on a pole erected just for this event, he made good on the wager! In March 1978, David Smith became mayor of Newark! The following months were not easy since three months after his election as mayor, Proposition 13 passed - a huge budget impact for Newark – followed by innumerable meetings to deal with the challenge. “It seemed like we were meeting every other night!” In the wake of Proposition 13, Dave says, “We adopted a conscious effort to be proactive in soliciting businesses that were going to generate other sources of revenue for us.” Smith notes that throughout his tenure, he has been blessed with an in-

High tax rates were a major complaint by Smith and finally Nagy had enough grousing and encouraged him to run for office… “Same song, different verse, different arena!” With a year-anda-half in Newark, just turning 30 and Nagy as his campaign manager, Dave knocked on doors, talked with a lot of people and became a councilmember under a borrowed Jaycee slogan, “Do Something!” Without experience, the duo found themselves in the midst of city politics. That was the beginning. When Mayor Jim Ballentine decided to retire, he asked Smith if he was interested in the position. In a quandary, both he and Al were unable to figure out what to do. Seeking advice of his pastor, Doug

Shultz, he was told of “The Rocket Ship Theory.” Pastor Shultz told Dave to think as captain of a rocket on the launch pad. You have to figure out what to do. The control panel has green, yellow and red lights; check to see if the lights are green for “go.” At the time, others had declared their candidacy for Mayor making the decision to enter the race extremely difficult but green lights were visible so “I knocked on over 4,000 doors with cardboard and plastic in my shoes during that winter which was bad one.” This was not the only challenge he faced that year. Profitability of the Fremont Ethyl Visquine plant was barely acceptable so in his inimitable manner, Smith chal-

credible staff. He quips, “Although every mayor will tell you that, I am the only one telling you the truth!” He adds, “We were inventing the Newark Way – teamwork - without calling it that.” Consensus is important for success, trying to get as many people as possible to agree. He adds, “The boat is not ready to sail if you have half the folks in and half of them out.” Thirty-three years later, Smith says, “Newark is a special community with special feelings and special values… a city where you can work, live and play. The spirit of Newark is built on the shoulders of those who have come before. At a recent volunteer recognition event, Newark citizens, from age 17 to 93, gathered to honor their city. It continues on, how can you not feel good about that?” Mayor David Smith concludes that the reason for his longevity in office and what “revved my engine every day” was “being part of a winning team.” He is confident that that team will continue its winning ways under the direction of his friend and fellow councilmember, Mayor Alan Nagy. YOWZA!

party conventions. “But the weather is going to be great.” Actually, history is on their side. The Tampa area hasn't had a direct hit from a hurricane since 1921, although Hurricane Charley caused catastrophic damage when it slammed into Punta Gorda, 100 miles south, in August 2004. Harris and other officials, including Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, hosted more than 450 media members at the St. Pete Times Forum, the downtown Tampa hockey arena where the convention will take place. Priebus promised a “smooth, state-of-the-art, exciting” event. Around 50,000 people are expected to come to the Tampa Bay area for the convention, including 5,000 to 6,000 delegates, 15,000 media members and possibly 10,000 protesters. Officials said it was too early to discuss the specifics of security plans, which may have to take into account larger-than-normal demonstrations spurred by the recent Occupy Wall Street movement. A small group of protesters has maintained a presence in a downtown park since October. A “security perimeter” around the downtown arena will be established, but Harris said it was too early to determine the boundaries or how close to the venue the designated area for demonstrators would be located. “The convention has been made a national security special even by the federal government, so the U.S. Secret Service is coordinating all the agencies down here together to come up with a security plan,’ Harris said. “We have absolute confidence in their ability.” High temperatures in the 90s in August will make it uncomfortable for extended strolls downtown. Planners said 1,000 feet of enclosed, air-conditioned walkway will link the St. Pete Times Forum and the convention center, where the media will work. Shuttles are expected to alleviate some of the expected traffic snarls that will result from many visitors staying in hotels across the bay in St. Petersburg, an area linked by three bridges that see daily rush-hour bottlenecks. “This area knows how to put on premier events - Super Bowl, World Series, Final Four, Stanley Cup Finals,” Preibus said. “Tampa Bay is an exceptional host community, and we're excited to be a partner with them and the entire area.” At the last nominating conventions in Florida, in 1972, the Democrats nominated U.S. Sen. George McGovern of South Dakota for president and the Republicans nominated President Richard Nixon for a second term. Next year's Democratic National Convention is Sept. 3-6 in Charlotte, NC.

Expanding the power plant capacity will ensure energy-efficient and costeffective energy systems to operate a state-of-the-art hospital protected from outside power outages. The 37,000 square foot power plant will supply all the necessary utilities to existing facilities and support all functions of Washington Hospital’s campus of the future. The opening of the Central Utility Plant is an important first step in Washington Hospital’s ongoing commitment to meeting the growing health care needs in our community. Please join us in celebrating this important milestone in Washington Township Health Care District history!
