Save The Yard supporters file papers for second try at initiative

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

By Allen Payton

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again, as the old saying goes. The proponents of what has become known as the Save The Yard effort, to create a park and event center on the former Antioch Lumber Company site in downtown, are following that advice.

According to Antioch City Manager’s Weekly Report, dated August 19th: On Monday, August 15th Joy Motts, the representative for the proponent, Jim Lanter, submitted a revised request for a “Title and Summary” for a revised Initiative Ordinance based on inconsistencies found by the City Attorney on Friday, August 12th. The proponent had been given the opportunity by the City Attorney and City Clerk/Elections Official to leave the initiative Ordinance as submitted on August 12th or to resubmit with corrections and that the City Clerk/Elections Official would waive a new Filing Fee. It was immediately sent to the City Attorney who has up to 15 days to prepare a “Title and Summary” and present it to the City Clerk/Elections Official for delivery to the proponent.

According to Motts, the proponents have 180 days to gather signatures from at least 10% of the registered voters in Antioch during the latest election. That figure is 46,677 as of June 25, 2016. If so, the initiative will be placed on the November, 2017 ballot. However, if they gather signatures of at last 15% of the registered voters, a special election can be called, which would occur sometime, next spring.

El Campanil Theatre thanks those who supported Air Force Band performance

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

By Gary Arftsen, Board Member

On June 26th, the U.S. Air Force Band of the Golden West, led by Captain Dustin M. Doyle, performed at El Campanil Theatre to deliver a heartfelt performance with the likes of “My Country ‘Tis of Thee”, “Yankee Doodle”, and many more. If you haven’t experienced the talent of the U.S. Air Force Band, please do yourself a huge favor, and look for their next return concert.

El Campanil Theatre is a nonprofit organization that depends solely on volunteers and contributions, so I must give two businesses a big thank you for giving without hesitation.  Brentwood Reprographics donated the programs for the event, detailing the history as well the background of their talented conductor, (who never stood still dancing to the direction of the band). Ken Turnage of K2GC Construction pleased the 45 band members by having lunch delivered.

It is imperative for the success of any nonprofit to have such valuable contributors to remain viable to the community. The Board of Directors of El Campanil would like to wholeheartedly express our gratitude for their willingness to assist us in making this event a wonderful day to a packed house.  The concert was free to all 600 people in attendance.

Brentwood Reprographics, Ken Turnage Construction along with the U.S Air Force Band are the true heroes of that day.
