BY MIRIAM G. MAZLIACH POSTERS COURTESY OF NEA Words on a page can spring into action, expanding the imagination. Reading, one of the most essential of life skills, opens doors to wonders of the world. On March 2, in classrooms and homes all across the country, those who love books are celebrating “Read Across America Day” honoring the birthday of an intergenerational phenomenon, “Dr. Seuss.” Every year, the National Education Association (NEA), salutes this cherished and respected children’s author, born Theodor Geisel, with a national birthday party. Whimsically-creative, topical and inspiring stories of Dr. Seuss have contributed to the joy so many experience by reading and listening to his stories. Although he passed away in 1991, readers young and old continue to adore and feel inspiration from the treasure trove of Dr. Seuss literature. So, in accordance with this year’s “Read Across America Day,” children, INDEX It’s a date . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 3

adults and families are encouraged, to “Sink your teeth into a good book.” Many schools in the Tri-city area will be hosting their own activities for students. The following is just a sampling: FREMONT Azevada Elementary During the day, students will be wearing pajamas to school for a PJ Party. In the evening, Azevada students and their parents will have a “Bedtime Story Night” where guest readers will share their favorite story books. Students will receive a free book, provided by the PTA, to take home. Brookvale Elementary Teachers at each grade level will pair up with their buddies to do Dr. Seuss book readings with their buddy classrooms. Teachers will swap places and read to a different classroom. Students will also work on individual projects within their classrooms learning about the history of Dr. Seuss and doing some “in class”

The students - Zong Yang Huang, Diane Qi, Lucia Song, Michael Xu, Jimmy Yin, Jason Zhang and Sihong Zhu – are among only about 15,000 finalists nationwide, from among an estimated 1.5 million original entrants. About 8,300 finalists will receive either a National Merit Scholarship, worth $2,500, or a corporate-sponsored or collegesponsored Merit scholarship.

The Bay Area News Group, MediaNews (which includes Oakland Tribune, Hayward Review, The Argus, Milpitas Post, Fremont Bulletin, San Jose Mercury and many other Bay Area newspapers) is trying to put Tri-City Voice Newspaper out of business.

Wait a minute, I thought YOU had the loot! AP WIRE SERVICE MADRID (AP) – There's nothing like a flat tire to ruin a carefully planned heist. Spanish police say hooded thieves crashed a van into a courier service warehouse vault and made off with sacks of valuables on Thursday. They then fled in a waiting Audi, but crashed into another car as they merged onto a Madrid highway. That caused the flat. The four thieves carjacked another vehicle at gunpoint. No one was hurt and the thieves got away – but left most of their booty in the back seat of the damaged Audi. The courier service SEUR said the stolen goods were things of ``special value'' worth no more than (euro) 50,000 ($67,000), although Spanish newspapers said the amount was much higher. El Mundo said the loot included diamonds and Rolex watches.

The old food pyramid most of us grew up with has been replaced by My Plate, an interactive, online tool for understanding and following the dietary guidelines issued by the United States Department of Agriculture. During National Nutrition Month in March, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is encouraging everyone to “Get Your Plate in Shape” as a way to focus attention on the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which recommends

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

“It’s a way of making sure your plate is filled with high-quality, nutritious foods. The focus is on more fruits and vegetables, and meals that are more natural and less processed.” According to the guidelines, the other quarter of the plate should be filled with lean protein and the final quarter with grains, preferably whole grains, with a side of low-fat dairy. The guidelines also call for smaller portion sizes and more physical activity.

60 minutes a day. The key is to stick with it. Try to at least do a moderate-effort activity like brisk walking.” Size Matters Villagomez said a good way to reduce portion sizes is to use a smaller plate. She recommends using an eight-inch plate, more like the size of an appetizer plate. “That way the plate looks really full and you feel like you are getting a lot of food,” she explained. “It’s much easier to

Maggie Villagomez, a registered dietitian at Washington Hospital says it’s important to eat a wide array of fruits and vegetables of different colors, especially dark green, red, and orange. Each color offers different vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that the body needs to stay healthy.

that half the dinner plate be filled with fruits and vegetables. “This year’s National Nutrition Month is focused on My Plate, which is really a guide to healthy eating,” said Maggie Villagomez, a registered dietitian at Washington Hospital.

“Being physically active is critical for keeping your weight down and reducing your risk for chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease,” Villagomez said. “If you are not physically active now, start with 10 minutes a day and work your way up to 30 to

overeat when you use the standard 10-inch plate.” When filling half your plate with fruits and vegetables, it’s important to include a wide array of colors, especially dark green, red, and orange. Each color offers different vitamins, minerals, and

other nutrients that the body needs to stay healthy, according to Villagomez. You can use fresh, frozen, canned or dried fruits and vegetables. If you use canned, be sure to use vegetables that have no added salt or low salt and fruit packed in its own juice with no added sugar. Make at least half your grains whole grains. Choose brown rice, barley, oats, and whole grain breads, cereals and crackers. “Check the list of ingredients to make sure the product contains whole grains,” she said. “It needs to say ‘whole wheat,’ not just wheat flour. The word ‘multigrain’ doesn’t necessarily mean it uses whole grain either. The label needs to use the word ‘whole’ to ensure you are getting whole grain. And whole grain should be first in the list of ingredients.” Keep it Lean Good sources of lean protein include seafood, lean meat, and poultry, as well as nuts, beans, and eggs. You should try to eat seafood twice a week and make one meal a week meatless, according to Villagomez. “Making one meal meatless is good for the environment and it can help cut your fat and calorie intake,” she said. “Choose a plant-based protein source like nuts, beans, or tofu.” You can also reduce the amount of fat and calories you consume by using fat-free or low-fat dairy products, which have the same amount of calcium and other nutrients as the full-fatted versions. The guidelines also call for reducing the amount of sugar,

March 2, 2012

salt, and unhealthy fats you eat. Avoiding soda and other sugary drinks as well as processed and fast foods can help. “Cook at home as often as possible,” Villagomez suggested. “That way you can control what goes into the food you eat. Try cooking with fresh herbs and spices to help reduce the amount of salt you use. Use healthy fats like olive or canola oil.” Better Health Following the My Plate guidelines can help improve your health and reduce your risk for diseases like diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and some cancers. For example, reducing the amount of salt in your diet can help keep your blood pressure down. Whole grains can help to keep your blood sugar and cholesterol under control. Reducing the amount of calories and fat in your diet can help keep your weight and cholesterol levels down. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables can help to prevent some cancers. “The risk factors for a number of chronic diseases are similar, and eating a nutrient-rich diet that is low in salt, sugar, and fat can help to prevent those diseases and slow their progression,” Villagomez said. For information & tools to help you follow the dietary guidelines for a healthy diet, visit www.ChooseMyPlate.gov.

SUBMITTED BY WELLS FARGO Wells Fargo will host a free Home Preservation Workshop in Richmond for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Wells Fargo Financial and Wells Fargo Home Equity customers facing financial hardship. The bank has invited more than 11,000 mortgage customers within a 100mile radius of Richmond to the free, two-day workshop which will be held on Wednesday, March 7 and Thursday, March 8, 2012, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., at the Craneway Pavilion, 1414 Harbour Way South, Richmond. Parking is free. “Although less than two percent of homeowner-occupied loans in our servicing portfolio have resulted in foreclosure sale over the past year, we understand that some of our customers are going through difficult times during this economic recovery,” said Jim Foley, president of Wells Fargo’s Greater Bay Area region. “During this two-day workshop, Wells Fargo home mortgage customers, who are faced with payment challenges, will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with our home-preservation specialists to explore the options available to them. Our goal is to help as many people as possible keep their homes.” This is the third Home Preservation Workshop Wells Fargo has hosted in the East Bay over the last three years.” More than hundred Wells Fargo home retention team members, including bilingual specialists, will be present to assist customers. Where

possible, borrowers will receive a decision on a workout, loan modification or other options, on site or shortly after the workshop. Options include Wells Fargo’s own loan modification program and the federal government’s Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP). This is the seventh scheduled workshop hosted by Wells Fargo in 2012. Wells Fargo has met with more than 32,000 customers at 55 Home Preservation Workshops since September 2009 nationwide. Following the workshop in Richmond, Wells Fargo will hold the next workshops of 2012 in Los Angeles (March 14 - 15) and Las Vegas (March 21). Customers across the country facing mortgage payment difficulties can also call 1-800-678-7986 for potential options to avoid foreclosure. Walk-ins are welcome at the Richmond event but registration is strongly recommended to guarantee a one-on-one meeting with a representative. Sign up by Monday, March 5, 2012 at www.wfhmevents.com/leadingthewayhome. For more information, call 1-800-405-8067.

SUBMITTED BY MICHAEL L. EMERSON The much-anticipated Castro Valley Veterans Memorial will take another step toward becoming reality on Saturday, March 3, 2012 when the project breaks ground at Castro Valley Community Park. Local elected officials, organizers, donors, veterans and members of the public will gather at 1 p.m. to mark this milestone and emphasize the need for additional donations. The Castro Valley Veterans Memorial is an effort by Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post #9601 to honor the men and women who have honorably served our nation and defended and continue to defend our freedom and way of life. “To date, many people from Castro Valley and surrounding communities have contributed to the Memorial because they have not forgotten the sacrifices made by veterans,” said Memorial Designer/Project Manager Michael L. Emerson, a Marine Corps veteran who also created and built the Flight 93 Memorial in Union City. “We shall not forget their sacrifices and we shall not lose that connection to our neighbors and family members who have served. This Memorial will be a visually stunning, yet dignified, reminder of the sacrifices veterans have made and why we are free.” Among the invited guests for Saturday’s ground breaking are State Senate Majority Leader Ellen Corbett, Alameda County Supervisor Nate Miley, State Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski and Alameda County Sheriff Gregory J. Ahern. A 17-piece band from the U.S.S. Hornet Museum, bagpiper, singer and designer’s Memorial renderings will also be present.

Almost all of the funds required to build the veterans memorial on Lake Chabot Road have been raised but more donations are still needed.

SUBMITTED BY DIANE DANIEL More than 100 years after the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire that claimed the lives of 146 immigrant girls and women, many of the issues, according to Cal State East Bay professor emeritus Gerald S. Henig, are still unresolved: immigration, women’s rights, the role of organized labor, and government regulation in the workplace. Henig, a longtime history professor, will return to CSUEB's Hayward campus on Thursday, March 8 to describe the circumstances leading to the tragedy, and explain why it hap-

pened, who was responsible, and the tragic consequences. The free program, part of the university's observance of Women's History Month, will be presented from 1 p.m. - 2 p.m. in the University Library's Biella Room. The program is sponsored by the History Department, part of College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences, and the University Libraries. On March 25, 1911, a cataclysmic fire swept through the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory, located on the top three floors of a 10-story building in New York City's lower Manhattan area. Most of the people who perished were Jewish or Italian immigrant women and girls, some as young as 13. It was the worst disaster to befall a New York City workplace until the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center. Henig, who holds a doctorate in American history, has specialized in such topics as the Progressive Era, the Civil War and Reconstruction. His Progressive Era papers include

fire helped change that. The event was big news in 1911 because of the shocking number of deaths, which were made all the more horrible because many of the women could have escaped, except for the policies of the factory management, that had locked the doors and blocked all escape routes. The resulting public outrage led to the implementation of significant factory safety reforms first in New York City, then in other major American cities." Parking on the CSUEB campus is $2 per hour.

Dems seek state-run pensions for private workers BY JUDY LIN, ASSOCIATED PRESS SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Two leading California Democrats introduced legislation Thursday that attempts to provide retirement savings for private-sector workers of modest means, creating a governmentrun program for private-sector workers whose employers do not offer pensions or 401(k) plans. They said it could help an estimated 6.7 million California workers. Sen. Kevin de Leon and Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg introduced SB1234, which would require employers with five or more workers to enroll them into what they have termed a ``personal pension program'' to be run by a state board. Their idea is to get small-business employees and hospitality workers who don't make much money to save more for their retirement. “We must take action on the impending retirement tsunami,” de Leon, of Los Angeles, said during a news conference in front of the state Treasurer's Office. “We cannot afford the rampant poverty and devastation that awaits us if we continue on our present course.” The lawmakers said they believed their program would be the first in which a state government established a retirement program for workers in the private sector. As a program with little or no precedent, several issues remain unsettled, such as whether California taxpayers would ever be on the hook if future investment returns failed to meet projections. In Michigan, the state's Municipal Employees Retirement System began offering retirement services to

Indian gaming tribes in 2009 to manage benefits for tribal government employees. According to a draft, SB1234 would establish the Golden State Retirement Savings Trust, which would be administered by a six-member board, including the state treasurer, controller, director of finance and an appointment each by the governor, Senate and Assembly. Private-sector workers would automatically have 3 percent of their earnings set aside in the trust, unless they opted out. Unlike in an individual IRA or 401(k) account, their benefits – defined as their contributions plus earnings – would be guaranteed when they retire. The draft language does not specify how the earnings would be guaranteed. The board would then contract with a fund administrator, such as the California State Public Employees Retirement System, the state's main pension fund. Republican lawmakers warned that taxpayers or employers could wind up on the hook to cover any shortfalls if the government starts guaranteeing benefits to private-sector employees. Under proposed legislation, an employer who fails to enroll in the program or offer their own pension plan would be fined $1,000 per employee after a 90-day grace period. “Before we start discussing creating a new pension system, California needs to focus on the current pension crisis,'” said Sen. Mimi Walters, R-Lake Forest, vice chairwoman of the Senate Public Employment and Retirement Committee. She noted the Democrats' proposal comes four months after Gov. Jerry Brown put out sweeping

reforms to public employee pensions. The largest of those funds, CalPERS, is underfunded by at least $75 billion. Unlike most retirement plans for private-sector workers, public employees receive a guaranteed pension for life that is not subject to the ups and downs of the stock market. CalPERS, for example, has the ability to impose higher contributions on state and local governments without the Legislature's permission. Additionally, some public employee groups contribute nothing or only modest amounts to their pensions. Walters dismissed the legislation as a way for Democrats to deflect attention from the problems with public pensions. Public employee unions are fighting against Brown's 12-point reform package and are key campaign supporters of Democrats. De Leon, whose previous efforts to open CalPERS up to private-sector employers have failed, said he believed California taxpayers would not be burdened by his private pension program. He said the board would be expected to invest conservatively, offering low earnings tied to long-term treasury rates. “This is a minimal risk,” de Leon said. Steinberg, the Senate's leading Democrat, said the majority party is not running away from reforming public pensions. “The challenge is not how we settle for an insufficient level of retirement for all Californians, whether they be public or private employees,'' he said. ``The question is how do we bring everybody up to a responsible decent standard of living during their retirement years.” continued on page 29

The Irene Ryan Foundation of Encino, California, has been awarding scholarships to the best student-actors in the country since 1972. The foundation itself is named after Irene Ryan who is best remembered for her portrayal of Granny Clampett in “The Beverly Hillbillies.” The annual scholarships provide “recognition, honor, and financial assistance to outstanding student performers wishing to pursue further education.” This year, both Vogel and Joseph were nominated by American College Region VII Festival adjudicator/teacher Reid Davis at St. Mary's college to compete at the festival held in Colorado.

by Jeffrey Gitomer On your way to work this morning, you checked in with your peeps and your tweeps. You told them you were wearing your lucky shirt, you asked for good wishes, then you hit “send” and posted it on Facebook and Twitter for all to see. But aside from your followers – who cares? Nobody, says author Jeffrey Gitomer, which means you’re wasting valuable resources. In his book “Social BOOM!” he shows how better postings on social media can mean better postings at the bank. Every day, you spend a few minutes amusing your friends online with your wryly observant posts. Fun, huh? Now imagine what would happen if you used those same few minutes to reach thousands of prospective clients instead. According to Gitomer, there are four keys to business social media: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube. Use all four efficiently, simultaneously, and with great frequency “…or BOOM! will never happen...” Facebook, he says, is the easiest to understand and use. Chances are you already have a personal page, but BOOM! requires a second page, on which you’ll post information of value to your clients and prospects. Give them something useful and they’ll run to your door. LinkedIn is purely a business social site; in fact, you’re not technically allowed to link with someone you don’t already know. LinkedIn is simple to use, and the beauty of it is that you can join groups of likeminded people and search for prospects in the data-

base. Don’t forget, Gitomer says, to completely fill out your profile. You might think Twitter and YouTube are just for kids, but Gitomer insists that both are important tools for business. If one of your tweets is re-tweeted, it automatically expands your audience (and your prospects) to the hundreds of thousands. And think about how convenient it would be to let new customers see a video of your business any time they wanted. “ if done correctly, business social media puts you in a direct one-on-one contact with paying customers,” says Gitomer. “That’s a game plan you can take to the bank.” Undoubtedly, the information you’ll find in “Social BOOM!” is useful. You don’t need a PhD in computers to do it. All you need, author Jeffrey Gitomer says, is time. But, judging by most indications, it’s going to take a lot of that. Gitomer says you only need an hour a day, but this book advises readers to peruse blogs, post multiple times a day, “follow” people and comment on their posts, make frequent YouTube videos, and update, update, update often. That one hour a day could quickly become all day. Still, employing just a fraction of what you’ll learn here can only help. Just dipping your toe into the tech pool may lead to some good leads. And most importantly, as Gitomer points out, business social media is free. I think there are nuggets of goodness inside “Social BOOM!” but only if used wisely and judiciously. If

you’re new to social media or want a few tips on using it, peep this book. .2011, Financial Times Press $22.99 / $27.99 Canada, 190 pages

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

BY JULIE GRABOWSKI Experience the world from many artistic viewpoints when students from the San Lorenzo Adult School come together to present “Shared Perceptions.” Opening March 4 and running through March 30 at the Alameda Museum, “Shared Perceptions” marks the 11th annual show by Studio 820 of student artwork from the watercolor and drawing classes of Monica Satterthwaite.

Student Ann Schmidt says the quality of the work is really good, and praises the classes, saying even if it is your first brush with art you will make strides in the first class and achieve great results within the first semester. She has been taking watercolor classes with Satterthwaite for the past 10 years, admiring her as “an accomplished, capable, wonderful teacher.” Satterthwaite is a well-known Bay Area illus-

of the other possibilities and to dos of life. Yet she says the class is not only about creating, but teaches you how to exhibit the art you produce,

hung, in museum quality style and presentation. Framed and matted original artwork will be available for sale, as well as some cards and bookmarks.

“Teapot” watercolor by Ann Schmidt

“Mary Ann” pastel by Ellen King

The show offers a mix of work from both new and accomplished students, both in the creation of art and the experience of exhibiting. For some this is the first time they have had their work on display, while others are seasoned award winners. Twenty-one students will be participating in the show, displaying three or four pieces each in mediums such as watercolor, pastel, acrylic, colored pencil, pen and ink, and graphite.

They’re very encouraging.” Being among fellow creators and receiving support and encouragement is an important part of development. “It is easy to lose motivation on your own,” Schmidt says, acknowledging that one can become distracted with all

which is the next step in the artist’s formation. That next step, in the form of an annual exhibition, got its start when one of Satterthwaite’s student artists approached the Alameda Museum where she worked as a docent and asked if they would be interested in hosting an exhibit of student work. The museum thought it was a great idea and happily obliged. All of the artwork in “Shared Perceptions” is professionally framed and

The show title “Shared Perceptions” reflects on the individual and differing eye of artists, how they can all be looking at the same thing, but produce completely different versions of a shared reality. Schmidt says the artwork is their perceptions of how they see the world, and the opportunity to share that with patrons. Satterthwaite’s classes at the San Lorenzo Adult School are open to all levels and spring registration is open now. Each

Browsing for furniture can easily overwhelm even the hardiest of shoppers. You've decided to buy a new sofa or dining set. You set out on a Saturday ready to buy, but when you get to the furniture showroom, you see so many choices that it is impossible to decide. Or, you see nothing on the floor that is to your liking so you become discouraged and leave with nothing. Does this sound familiar? If so, perhaps the following tips can help. • Before you go shopping measure your room to determine the size you are looking for. I can’t emphasize this enough! Most furniture showrooms are very large, making the furniture look relatively small. Be careful - when you get the furniture home it may be too big for your space. Measure the wall width and height, and also measure any furniture you will be keeping in that room. That way you can make sure the new furniture pieces will be in the proper scale and proportion. Always take your tape measure to the store with you so you can measure on the spot. It’s a good idea to take along a few photos of the room too; the sales person can help you determine if the new items will be a good fit in terms of scale, size and style. • Take paint color chips, a swatch of your drapery fabric, a cutting of your wallpaper, even a cushion from your sofa or chair. This will help you make good color choices. Many stores let you bring fabric swatches home with you, which can be very helpful when trying to coordinate colors and patterns. • Focus your shopping efforts. Even if you need several new pieces, shop for only one or two

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

pieces at a time. Trying to do too much in one day gets overwhelming. When I take clients shopping, we may look around to see what is available, but we concentrate our time looking at one or two high priority items. • If you don't see what you are looking for on the showroom floor, be sure and ask a salesperson for help. They can look through their catalogs to find what you need. Furniture stores only have a small percentage of available items on the floor. Often a variety of sizes, styles and finishes are available, but you won't know unless you ask. • Be prepared to wait several weeks for furniture to arrive. Eight to twelve weeks is a very typical time frame. Don't wait until the last minute to go shopping. If you have a deadline in mind, such as your daughter's wedding shower or husband's birthday party, plan ahead. • No matter how good a deal it may seem, don't buy an entire living room suite if all you really need is a sofa. The extra furniture pieces will undoubtedly crowd your room, and the look will be too "matchy-matchy." Chairs should coordinate with the sofa, not necessarily match it exactly. • Ordering furniture online has become more and more popular. Read reviews of the online store, as well as reviews of the piece you are looking to buy. And read the return policy carefully—many items are not returnable, especially if they are custom. Read about their delivery policy as well; does the furniture come assembled or will you have to do that? Does the driver bring it into the house and set it up for you or will the box just be left on your porch or drive-

way? If a piece is large and heavy, pay extra for the “white glove delivery service” where they bring it in the house for you. Also watch out for the shipping charges, which can add a substantial amount to the purchase price. Be aware and budget accordingly. • Consignment stores are great places to look for furniture. If you see something you like, buy it right away, as their inventory changes frequently. By the same token, if you don't see anything this time, check again next week. At consignment stores, look for style, comfort and quality. Don’t worry about the upholstery fabric; that can always be changed. • Take only one or two other people with you to shop. Those others could be your spouse, a close friend or your designer. Any more than that and you'll have too many opinions to consider. With a bit of planning, your shopping experience will be a great success.

Cougars advance to championship BY JOHN SUZA PHOTOS BY MIKE HEIGHTCHEW

The Newark Memorial HS Cougars advanced to the North Coast Section title game with a win over the Las Lomas Knights 49-37, Wednesday night, February 29.

An impressive win showed why the Cougars have a very good chance to go a long way this year. From the outset, the Cougars were put to the test as Las Lomas came out fighting hard, negating the patented Cougar fast attack. Forced into a shooting match that has been a Knight strength throughout the season, a great battle was fought under the net. With a 13-6 deficit at the half, the Cougars had their work cut out for them. In an impressive turnaround, the Cougar’s gained control of the game utilizing great speed and ball control, clawing their way back to a tie in the third quarter. By the end of the quarter, the Cougars were in control, opening a 7-point lead. Next stop for the number one seed Cougars (26-5) is the North Coast Section Championship against number two seed Windsor High School Jaguars (25-4) on Friday, March 2 at Dublin High School at 8 p.m. continued from page 16

Dems seek state-run pensions for private workers Ilana Boivie, director of programs at the National Institute on Retirement Security, a not-for-profit organization in Washington, D.C., funded in part by public pension systems, said half of private-sector workers offer no retirement program. One small business owner said it was a good idea. Andrew Blaskovich, owner of Drewski's Hot Rod Kitchen, a mobile food truck business in Sacramento, said most of his 25 employees make $2,500 to $3,000 a month and he can't afford to provide them retirement benefits. ``This gives them an easier opportunity to put away money for the future,'' he said during the press conference. The draft bill said employers would not be forced to contribute to the retirement plans, but a summary of the legislation from de Leon's office leaves open the possibility for ``companion legislation that requires employers to assist their employees in saving for retirement.''

BY BETH J. HARPAZ ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK (AP)– Peter Brouwer turns 56 on Wednesday. But if you count the times he's celebrated his true birth date, he's only turning 14. Brouwer is a Leap day baby. And like a lot of people born Feb. 29, he relishes the uniqueness of his birthday. He even thinks there's an advantage to marking your real birthday just once every four years. “We don't have that psychological drama of being a year older every year,” said Brouwer, who lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, and is the cofounder of the Honor Society of Leap Year Day Babies. In off years, Brouwer says, most Leap day babies – perhaps 80 percent – celebrate their birthdays in February ``because they're born in February. We call them strict Februarians.'' But Jennifer Whisnant of Greensboro, N.C., whose daughter Ava was born in 2008, says they ``celebrate on the closest Saturday for a party, or on March 1st, which is technically when she would have been born had it not been Leap year.'' Birth certificates and most government agencies like Social Security use Feb. 29 for those

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

born on Leap Day, but leaplings occasionally encounter bureaucratic difficulties using their true birth dates. Some computerized dropdown menus don't include Feb. 29. “My life insurance policy is for March 1 because their computer doesn't support Leap day,”Brouwer said. On Facebook, Anne McCarthy's friends get a note Feb. 28 that her birthday is the next day. Then on March 1, “there would be nothing. So, unless it was a Leap year, friends would not see birthday reminders for the actual day,” said McCarthy, of Boston, turning 24 on Wednesday (in Leap time, 6). There are no reliable numbers on exactly how many babies are born on Leap day, but statistically, the odds of being born then are the same as any other day. “The law of averages means your chance of being born on Feb. 29 are one out of 1,461,” Brouwer said, explaining that 1,461 equals 365, or the number of days in the year, times four, plus one for the extra day in the four-year cycle. “We figure in the U.S., there's about 200,000 of us, and in the world, about 5 million.” There's also no good way of definitively determining whether

mothers with scheduled C-sections or induced births avoid or embrace Leap day. Fewer babies are born on weekends in the U.S. than on other days, according to research by the National Center for Health Statistics, and since Leap day fell on a Sunday in 2004 and a Friday in 2008, birth numbers from those years don't tell the whole story. What will happen this year is anybody's guess. At Inova Health System in Virginia, where more than 20,000 babies were born last year in four hospitals, “women are running from the date. That's what we've found,” said spokesman Tony Raker. But at Florida Hospital in Orlando, “people would rather have the baby on Leap day. We have a slight increase in the number of scheduled C-sections on that day since it is a special day,” said hospital spokeswoman Sara Channing. One of those scheduled to give birth Wednesday at Florida Hospital is Tammy Gerencser, who didn't hesitate when her doctor proposed scheduling her C-section Feb. 29. “I got this sheet of paper that said, `You're going in Feb. 29,” Gerencser said. She said continued on page 34

school of their choosing to further their expertise in the theatre arts. Steven Vogel and Chris Joseph are not the first Ohlone students to compete in the Irene Ryan auditions, and are certainly not the last. Joseph is unique in that he was the first deaf student actor to compete in the Irene Ryans at ACTF. Not only did he represent Ohlone, but the deaf community in Fremont as well. The students have been working together two days a week since the New Year started, with an outside eye from student director Wesley Rou and adjunct faculty member and Coach Dor Atkinson. The auditions are a great opportunity to practice auditioning, performing, and being judged by their work. They will be meeting many other student actors and faculty members from schools across the country, and perhaps making contacts which could help them in the future. Of course, the American College Theatre Festival is not all about the Irene Ryan Scholarships. There are a wide variety of workshops and events at the festival, which

means more opportunities to learn, take a risk, and to try something new. According to the ACTF website, “[there are] workshops and seminars on such topics as playwriting, auditioning, voice, movement, stage combat, theater for children, scene painting, scenery construction, and so on. There are sessions for the beginning theater artist and the experienced faculty member.” Unfortunately, Vogel and Joseph did not make it to the Irene Ryan finals, but it surely won’t be their last time competing in these auditions. Says Dor Atkinson, Ohlone faculty member and the students’ coach, “It's very exciting to see these students being recognized for their hard work and progress, and taking an important step in their chosen career.

hood, CSUEB and for Chabot,” said Yvonne Wu Craig, Chabot College Grant Developer/Writer and representative on the management team for the planning grant. “This is a great opportunity for us to make systematic changes to the educational system and create a lasting impact on a neighborhood where we are already serving over 800 of the residents,” said Tram Vo-Kumamoto, Chabot College Dean of Science and Math and a grant management team member.

Winner of F.U.N. Sunset Rotary Club speech contest SUBMITTED BY HELEN KENNEDY Sohabe Mojaddidy of James Logan High School won the F.U.N. Sunset Rotary Club’s Youth Speech Contest on February 23, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Union City. The speech contest is held annually by the clubs in Rotary District 5170. This year’s topic was “Reach Within to Embrace Humanity” and Mojaddidy’s speech was based on the premise that to embrace humanity we must respect humanity. One of the essential requirements of the contest is that each speech incorporates Rotary’s 4-Way Test that serves Rotarians as a guide for everyday living. Rotary’s 4-Way Test examines the things we say and do: 1) Is it the truth? 2) Is it fair to all concerned? 3) Will it build goodwill and better friendships? 4) Will it be beneficial to all concerned? Rotary Clubs of District 5170 sponsor the Richard D. King Annual Youth Speech Contest with three objectives in mind: 1) To help young people know the importance of speaking effectively before a group; 2) To expand public knowledge, especially among young people, of what Rotary is and does throughout the world; 3) To allow high

school students the opportunity to compete for $1,550.00 in prize money. The money is awarded with “no strings attached,” but it is hoped it will be used to further the student’s education. Mojaddidy won a $100 prize from the F.U.N. Sunset competition and advanced to the Rotary’s Area Speech Contest in which he competed against other Rotary local contest winners for a First Place prize of $200 and Second Place prize of $100. The Area Speech Contest took place on March 1 at Washington Hospital West. Winner of the Area contest will move on to the Regional contest March 23, 2012 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose. The top two speakers will then have an opportunity to compete in the District Finals on April 4, 2012 at the Doubletree Hotel in San Jose. The second place winner was Michael Xu and Kelsey Glenn was placed third. All three competitors are students at James Logan High School and participate in the nationally-renowned Forensics program led by teacher Tommie Lindsay. For more information, visit www.FunRotary.com or contact Membership Director Elaine Wong-Bigel at (510) 381-9989.

Winners of F.U.N. Sunset Rotary Club Speech Contest, (l-r) Michael Xu (second place), Kelsey Glenn (third place) and Sohabe Mojaddidy (first place).

SUBMITTED BY RICHARD FRIESNER Victoria Cheng, of Fremont, a student at Irvington High School and Melissa Wu of Fremont, a student at Mission San Jose High School have been selected to represent California as National Youth Delegates to attend the Washington Youth Summit on the Environment at George Mason University. These students are among only 250 individuals chosen to join a select group of students from all across the country to participate in an intensive week-long study of leadership in environmental science and conservation. They were chosen based on academic accomplishments and a demonstrated interest and excellence in leadership in the sciences and conservation studies. George Mason University along with partners, National Geographic and the National Zoo are excited to welcome the nation's leading youth scholars to Washington, D.C. With distinguished faculty, guest speakers, and direct access to elite D.C. practitioners, the Washington Youth Summit on the Environment offers aspiring environmentalists an unparalleled experience. The week-long program is held at George Mason University's state-of-the-art campus. The Summit encourages and inspires young leaders who desire a unique experience focused on successful careers in this dynamic industry. The Washington Youth Summit on the Environment will be held June 24-29, 2012. The Washington Youth Summit on the Environment (WYSE) is a unique student leadership conference designed to develop and encourage future leaders in the important field of environmental studies and conservation in the 21st century. The Advisory Board, is chaired by Mark Bauman, Executive Vice President of National Geographic Television and co-chaired by Joe Sacco, Educational Director for the National Zoo.

Delegates gain an insider look at environmental science, policy and conservation issues. For more information visit us online at wyse.gmu.edu.

while a few people told her, “Oh no, you need to change that date,' other people are so excited.” This will be her and her husband's second child. “I was told I couldn't have any more children, so he's special anyway,” she said. Andrea McGowan, a labor and delivery nurse at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, predicts that Leap day “will be like any other Wednesday” in the maternity ward. But she can give firsthand advice to anyone who becomes a mom that day: Her own daughter was born Feb. 29, 1996. “Having that birthday adds a little flair,” she said. “It's a conversation piece.'' The towns of Anthony, N.M., and Anthony, Texas, both on the line between the states, host a Worldwide Leap Year Festival every four years the week of Feb. 29, with a carnival, car show and other events. Past guests

range from a 16-year-old leapling (4) who came from California, to a local man who's the oldest at 92 (23), according to Hector Giron, one of the organizers. Some leaplings come up with their own rituals to mark non-Leap years. Rachel Laber, who lives in New York City and will be 24 on Wednesday (6) prefers to celebrate her birthday Feb. 28 in off years. But to placate those who argue for March 1, “I have taken on a two-day celebration the last 10 years or so.” Jan Harrell of Ashland, Ore., handles off years by staying up until midnight with friends who shout “Happy birthday!” in ``that magical nanosecond'' between Feb. 28 and March 1. “My birthday feels like a cosmic joke,” said Harrell, who turns 64 (16) this week. “But not a bad one, just a very, very funny one.”

SUBMITTED BY NEWARK POLICE DEPARTMENT If you think you are the victim of identity theft or fraud, there are important steps you should take to minimize the impact. The following are tips for effectively responding to identity theft. Place a fraud alert on your credit reports Notify all three main credit reporting agencies—Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion, listed below—that you suspect you have been a victim of identity theft, and ask that a fraud alert be placed on your credit file. This should help prevent further damage if an identity thief has successfully applied for credit in your name, and help prevent further credit abuse. You should also consider placing a freeze on your credit report that should prevent any new credit accounts being opened in your name. In California, this is free for victims of identity theft. Complete an identity theft affidavit You will need to complete an identity theft affidavit form. This form can be used to halt any hasty action by creditors and debt collectors, and can be downloaded from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) web site at http://www.ftc.gov; click on the Identity Theft link. You will probably need to send a copy of the affidavit to each affected creditor, along with any information about the accounts fraudulently opened in your name, as well as a copy of the police report. Be sure to always send an identity theft affidavit by certified mail and request a return receipt. File a police report You should also file a report of identity theft with your police department. File your report in the city where you live, although you can also file it in the city where you work. You are not required to file a report of

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

identity theft in the city where you think the crime was committed. The Newark Police Department requires all identity theft reports be filed on line. Visit http://www.newark.org/departments/police/administrative-services/identity-theft to make a report of identity theft if you live or work in the City of Newark. Make sure you keep a copy of the completed police report. Contact your bank and credit card companies Contact all affected bank and credit card companies and close any affected accounts if necessary. If checks have been misused, place a stop order on any outstanding checks that you are not sure about. Contact any creditors, such as stores or utility companies, with whom your name has been used fraudulently. You should explain the circumstances, offer to provide a copy of the identity theft affidavit, and request copies of any documentation such as loan applications and transaction records. If theft from a bank account is involved, you should close that account immediately and open a new one, as well as cancel your ATM and credit cards and request new ones. Make sure you always create a new, strong password and PIN for any new accounts. Don't be intimidated by debt collectors Debt collectors can sometimes be too aggressive in pursuing victims of identity theft. Don't be intimidated by debt collectors; if the debt is not yours, do not offer or agree to pay anything. Respond in writing and keep a record. Keep records Keep copies of all fraudulent transactions and of all correspondences with banks and creditors concerning the disputed transactions. Contact the Post Office If mail has been stolen or a mailing address has been fraudulently used by an identity thief, you should report it to the postal

Page 35

inspectors. You can find the contact information for your nearest office on the United States Postal Service web site at www.usps.gov. You should also contact your local Post Office if you think your address has been changed by a thief. Contact Social Security Administration If you suspect that your Social Security number has been misused, you should report it to the Social Security Administration. Contact information can be found at www.ssa.gov. Resources: If you live or work in the City of Newark and believe you are the victim of identity theft, there is now a free service that will provide advice and support to help you get through it. This unique service is a partnership between the Newark Police Department and the Identity Theft Council, a nonprofit group of identity theft and security experts who are volunteering their time to provide free assistance to identity theft victims locally. To speak to a counselor by phone, call 1 (888)771-0767, or you can email the Identity Theft Council at support@identitytheftcouncil.org.

Man says he used harpoon after alleged break-in AP WIRE SERVICE OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An Oklahoma City man told police he used a harpoon to defend his home from two intruders on Wednesday morning. At 6:25 a.m., the man reported two men wearing ski masks forced their way into his house in northwest Oklahoma City. Two residents were injured in the alleged home invasion, but police found no evidence any suspects were struck with the harpoon. Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow says police have little information about what the suspects look like. She says anyone with information should call police. Under Oklahoma's Make My Day law, residents can use can use deadly force to defend their homes if they fear they will be killed or suffer serious injuries.
