Antioch School Board hears Deer Valley High football coaches, students speak against accusations, approves new Math-Intensive program for Deer Valley students

Saturday, October 31st, 2015

By Nick Goodrich

On Wednesday night, October 28, students and coaches with the Deer Valley High School football program, turned out in force to the Antioch School Board meeting, to protest accusations made against them, involving an incident with the Pittsburg High School band, earlier in the month.

Videos were posted on social media of the football game between Deer Valley and Pittsburg on Friday, October 16th, apparently showing Deer Valley football players and coaches interrupting the Pittsburg band, as they performed their routine before the game. Later claims made by band members and parents alleged that band members were pushed, spit on, and harassed by both Deer Valley players and coaches.

However, the Deer Valley students and coaching staff said that the incident was a misunderstanding and in no way occurred as it had been portrayed on social media. The Board agreed, stating that the incident was blown out of proportion, but stood firm in the decision to place Head Coach Robert Hubbard on administrative leave pending a full investigation.

We have to remind everyone that Coach Hubbard will have to remain on leave until the investigation is complete,” said Board President Claire Smith.

Many of the comments by students and coaches present at the meeting centered on Hubbard, who they say has had “a great impact” on students and players both on and off the field, and who also teaches a special needs class at Deer Valley. He has served as the DVHS football program’s head coach since July of this year, following the departure of previous coach Richard Woods.

During the meeting, the Board also voted 3-0 to approve a new math intensive tutoring program for Deer Valley students, developed by Antioch residents John Crowder and Angel Luevano. The program, which will be available after school for three hours every school day, places a special emphasis on students struggling in their current Algebra 1 classes.

Students in the program will work with tutors on their current class work, while also catching up with work they have learned in the past but may have forgotten. Testing will occur at each students’ entry to determine which skills need to be worked on with each individual, and will continue throughout the program. Once a student is deemed through testing to have sufficient knowledge of the subjects being learned in class, he or she will graduate the program, opening up the spot for another student to be brought on board. As many as twenty-four students at a time can participate. The Board members said they excited to vote the program in, and expects to see positive results with Algebra 1 students at Deer Valley.

Clipper® expands to Tri Delta Transit, other East Bay bus services, starting Sunday

Saturday, October 31st, 2015

Clipper CardTransit Card accepted Nov. 1 on Tri Delta Transit, County Connection, WestCAT, Wheels

Clipper, the all-in-one transit fare payment card already accepted on 13 Bay Area transit systems, is expanding this Sunday, Nov. 1, to four more bus services in the East Bay: Tri Delta Transit, County Connection, WestCAT and Wheels. The four transit agencies will accept Clipper cards loaded with cash value as well as a range of 31-day passes good for local or express travel.

This is a major benefit both for people who ride the bus to BART as well as those who rely on the bus for local trips,” said MTC Commissioner, County Connection board member and Orinda City Councilmember Amy Rein Worth. “I am pleased that MTC and the transit operators have worked together so well to make Clipper available to more East Bay transit riders.”

Clipper already is accepted on AC Transit, BART, Caltrain, FAST, Golden Gate Transit and Ferry, Marin Transit, Muni, SamTrans, SF Bay Ferry, SolTrans, Vacaville City Coach, VINE and VTA.

Clipper is so convenient. You don’t have to worry about exact change, and if you ride BART, you get the same transfer discounts without having to keep track of paper transfers,” said Alameda County Supervisor and MTC Commissioner Scott Haggerty, who also serves as a board member of the Livermore Amador Valley Transit Authority, which operates the Wheels transit service. “You can set it up to automatically reload, and you can use your transit benefits to load value on the card. These features make Clipper a much more attractive option than cash.”

Clipper is used for fare payment on nearly half of all transit trips in the Bay Area. Last month, Clipper was used for an average of more than 800,000 trips each weekday. About one-third of all registered Clipper cards are signed up for Autoload, which automatically reloads value on the card when it runs low.

The Clipper network will expand again in 2016 to Union City Transit, Petaluma Transit, Santa Rosa CityBus and Sonoma County Transit. Clipper will be the sole fare payment method used by Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) when it begins operation in late 2016.

Clipper is a service provided by Bay Area transit operators and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, the transportation planning, financing and coordinating agency for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area.

For more information about Clipper, go to or call Clipper Customer Service at 877.878.8883.

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

From Antioch City Manager Steve Duran’s Weekly Report, dated 10/23/15, as provided by Police Chief Allan Cantando:

– On 10/21/15 at 7:45 pm a 20 year old man who works at Quickly and had taken a smoke break with 25 year old female co-worker. They were approached by 4 males one of which had a gun tucked in his waistband. The female ran inside but the male remained outside and was contacted by the group who punched him causing him to fall to the ground. They then began kicking him and going through his pockets. He was eventually allowed to stand and as the group started to walk away. The male with the gun turned and fired one round into a nearby door frame approx. 1′ away from where the victim was standing. The entire incident was caught on camera. The victim was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for complaint of pain to his jaw and minor lacerations. He was uncooperative with the investigation but based on limited statements from him, the incident was over a girl and he most likely knows the responsible parties.

– On 10/21/15 at 3:20 pm officers were dispatched to a suspicious circumstance regarding possible squatters at a vacant home on 16th Street. Upon arrival, Officers observed 36 year old Wendell Celestine flee from the yard of the residence. They gave chase and in doing so, Celestine attempted to stop two separate cars on G Street and get inside unsuccessfully. A foot pursuit ensued and eventually Celestine gave up. He was taken into custody without incident. He was having difficulty breathing, so an ambulance was summoned to the scene. When officers attempted to transfer him to the ambulance, Celestine kicked an officer in the lower leg. He was sent to a local hospital due to excessive methamphetamine use. He was eventually cleared after 6 hours, for incarceration and booked into County Jail.

– On 10/21/15 at 1:05 am officers responded to a robbery at the 76 Gas Station on Hillcrest Avenue. While completing an area check they contacted 27 year old Edward Crandell.

Shortly afterwards, a 37 year old male arrived at Sutter Delta Hospital with a gunshot wound to his chest. Information was fragmented and inconsistent. Ultimately, it appeared that the victim walked to the gas station and contacted a woman near the black Acura. An argument was heard and then shots were fired and the victim fled. A passer-by witness picked up the victim and drove him to the emergency room. The victim was reluctant to give a statement, but stated that a male shot him. The responsible parties are still outstanding and the victim is expected to recover.

– On 10/20/15 at 8:00 am an officer was stopped in the east bound lane in front of 2300 Sycamore Drive waiting to turn into the complex.

The victim told us that a 36 year old female and her 3 yr old daughter were last seen going into an apartment. As we made contact at that apartment, the 36 year old jumped out a bedroom window leaving her daughter behind. The 36 year old also left a credit card manufacturing machine and hundreds of blank credit cards with her name on them. We were able learn that the 3 women were involved in a dating relationship with each other. For some reason, the 36 year old and Thornton started beating the victim and threatening her with a knife.

He had lost a lot of blood and was transported to an area hospital where he was taken into surgery immediately. There were several people in the house who either didn’t see anything, didn’t know how the victim was injured, or weren’t providing a truthful account of events. One of the subjects who had been at the house had fled and was not located. The residents gave consent for the house which we searched. We recovered a shotgun loaded with birdshot, a magazine loaded with .45 rounds, and an empty high capacity magazine. There was also a marijuana grow at the house and processed marijuana which one resident had a card for. It doesn’t appear the incident is related to the grow. The victim was in recovery within a couple hours and is expected to recover according to hospital staff.

Woodruff was sent to County Jail.

– On 10/17/15 at 1:15 am officers responded to the 911 call of 50 subjects fighting inside Cruisers Saloon on A Street.

American Medical Response responded and the victim was treated at the scene and refused transport. 39 year old Ryneal Mays, who was with Jones was yelling at other patrons and challenging them to fight and he refused to leave.

– On 10/16/15 at 7:30 am 44 year old Sandra Ferguson was on her way to work this morning at Sutter Elementary School. As she passed the above location, she observed a Nissan pickup parked on the side of the road with 56 year old Santiago Salazar in the driver seat and an 11year old female in the front passenger seat. Ferguson knew the girl’s family and did not recognize Salazar. Fearing that the child was in danger, she blocked Salazar in with her vehicle and contacted the police. We arrived and detained Salazar. After speaking with the child, we were able to determine that Salazar began following her as she walked to school. Salazar parked near her and lured her over to his vehicle. Salazar opened his passenger door from inside the vehicle and engaged her in conversation. She got close enough to the car that Salazar was able to grab her wrist and pull her into his truck. Ferguson intervened shortly thereafter. Salazar was arrested and provided a statement that he was just trying to give the child a ride to school. He was arrested and sent to County Jail.

– On 10/15/15 at 9:45 pm a 56 year old female left for work at 5am and returned home to Provence Court at 9:30pm. She located what appeared to be a bullet hole in the window of her bathroom.

No bullet was located, and there are no suspects or witnesses.

– On 10/15/15 at 5 pm a 59 year old driver called APD to report that she had been involved in a traffic collision on Center Lane where an 11 year old had run into her car as she was driving on Center Lane. The 11 year old appeared to be fine but the driver was concerned because the child stated his mother was gone and he was unable to contact her. We responded and contacted American Medical Response for precautionary reasons. He was medically cleared but was in the care of his 16 year old sister and according to her, their mother was working in San Francisco and unable to be contacted. They had no way of getting in touch with her. We contacted her grandfather who arrived but in doing a check we found two outstanding warrants and he was arrested. Finally, family members were able to reach mom who responded home and took custody of the 11 year old.

– On 10/15/15 at 8:45 am a citizen contacted APD to check on two young children who were left unattended in a van at the Jack in the Box on A Street.. Officers located the children in the van just as their mother, 35 year old Brandi Martinez, was arriving. Both children were in poor health, dirty and hungry. The female juvenile was not wearing any pants and had urinated all over herself. The male child had scabs on his face and bug bites all over his back. It was discovered that all three were living in the van, which was filthy. Martinez was under the influence of methamphetamine and several glass pipes were found in her purse. She said that she left her children unattended so that she could use the bathroom inside Jack in the Box. Both children were placed into protective custody and transferred to Children and Family Services. Martinez was arrested and sent to County Jail.

– On 10/15/15 at 9 am ,30 year old Nicole Wade and 36 year old Gary Worthington stole a Nissan pickup from the driveway of a home on Miller Street. The vehicle did not run and had 2 flat tires, so Wade used her own vehicle to push the Nissan down the roadway while Worthington steered it. A neighbor witnessed the theft and contacted APD. Arriving officers located the responsible parties and Wade fled in her vehicle. A short pursuit ensued which ended with when Wade collided with a light pole in the median of Hillcrest Ave in front of the PG&E Plant. Wade fled from the vehicle on foot but was quickly apprehended. Worthington was detained by other responding officers near the Nissan. Both subjects were taken to County Jail.
