The road to hell can sometimes be paved with good intentions. In the frenzied rush of squeezing the budget while doubling-down on core subjects, music and the arts got short shrift. What was lost in the deal of drill and kill on reading and math was the heart and soul that brings satisfaction to the daily grind, Remember, many kids are disenfranchised and starving for even one passion, one single connection, one driving engagement to keep them from truancy.

It is not only about restoring motivation, though. Music can be academic brain food well as well.  In teaching to the test and glorifying the fill-in-the-bubble multiple choice, we, inadvertently dumbed down. Coming full circle, we now see that learning  music is not a frill luxury but, actually, a foundation in facilitating the learning of other subjects.

Poll any group of physicians and you will be amazed at how many took music. This should come as no surprise as music is really, in a sense, pure math. Research studies confirm that music students enjoy distinct advantages in spatial- temporal skills, associated with math comprehension.

Language development benefits, too.  Musical training physically develops the left side of the brain, the part known to be involved in the learning of language.  Vocabulary acquisition is enriched and cognitive thinking sharpened.

That’s not all. Music student attendance is cumulatively higher, grades better and discipline less.  Music employs multiple skill sets, exercises eyes and ears and both larger and small muscles. In the process, students increase attention span and learn poise, teamwork and how to think on their feet.

Some research even indicates higher I.Q. of musical students.  A 2007 study by Christopher Johnson of the University of Texas showed that students in elementarry schools having superior musical programs scored 22% higher on English and 20% higher on math standardized tests.

With this all in mind, good news for Antioch! As part of the holistic emphasis of the newly mandated Local Control Accountability Plan, (LCAP) the School Board just approved greatly expanded arts and music initiatives. This includes bringing elementary band back and newly invigorated middle school programs.  These are essential as the lower grades are, obviously, the high school feeders.

Kudos to the Board for a shared vision in adopting this measure and to those who did the tireless leg work to get this into the budget.  Thanks go to Superintendent Dr. Donald Gill, LCAP Director Cheryl Domenichelli, and to Associate Superintendent Stephanie Anello for their enlightened perspective and for executing the logistics in pushing this forward.

Special gratitude goes to all the local long-term music educators, led by Sharon Vela, and the likes of Ken Bergmann, Romano Marchetti, Paul Rataczak, Damien Ting and Larry Widener, who carried the torch these lean years. They championed philosopher  Frederick Nietzsche’s charge, that “without music life would be a mistake.”:

Welcome back the spiritual soundtrack of our lives. Our kids, our hometown civic culture, and our collective humanity can celebrate.

It’s music to many of our ears.

Troy Foulger impressed with a $2500 IMCA Modified feature victory Saturday night at Antioch Speedway.  This was the Main Event for the two day Summer Nationals event.  Foulger had a front row start and led all 20 laps, but it wasn’t that easy for the four time track champion.  He had to deal with heavy pressure from a three time champion down the stretch.

Bobby Hogge IV had already won the Late Model Main Event and worked his way into second in the IMCA Modified feature.  By then, Foulger had a straightaway advantage, but Hogge rapidly erased that lead.  Once Hogge caught Foulger, he kept sticking a nose underneath him in Turns 3 and 4, but Foulger ran a perfect line on the outside.

Hogge made a last turn move to try and get by, but Foulger beat him to the line for the rich payday in the Bowers Racing Modified. Hogge settled for second.  Randy McDaniel made a late move to take third from Kellen Chadwick, and Darrell Hughes II rounded out the Top five finishers at the checkered flag.

Hogge put on a show in the Late Model Main Event and collected the $2,000 victory in the 20 lap race.  Hogge started back in tenth and was in second by lap four.  Paul Guglielmoni set the early pace, but Hogge made an inside pass in Turn 4 of the fifth lap and grabbed the lead.  From there, Hogge stretched his lead to a half a lap by the time the checkered flag flew.

Randy Shafer had his hands full in the race for second, but he held the spot during the final ten laps despite constant pressure from third place finisher Anthony Restad and fourth place finisher Ryan McDaniel.  NASCAR star Kenny Wallace won his heat race and had a front row start for the feature.  He led one lap before a yellow flag waved.  He suffered a problem with his motor during the first lap caution period and retired from the race.

Darren Thomas had a front row start for the 20 lap IMCA Sport Modified Main Event and led the race all the way.  Two mid race caution flags slowed the pace, but Thomas resumed command from there to post the $750 victory.  Point leader Fred Ryland gained second from Jorddon Braaten on lap 13, but he could only chase Thomas to the second place finish.  Brian Cooper got around Braaten late for a third place finish.

Antioch Speedway is dark for the Fourth Of July weekend, but racing resumes on Saturday night, July 11th.  Northern All Stars Winged 360 Sprint Cars, Wingless Spec Sprints, IMCA Sport Modifieds, Limited Late Models and Hobby Stocks are all on the card.

The Antioch Police Activities League (PAL) kicked off its 2015 Jr. Giants Baseball League Saturday June 27 as all the league participates were able to run from third base to home plate in front of friends and family.

This year, more than 600 kids will be able to participate in the league which costs roughly $13,000 to run for six-weeks of baseball.

Councilwoman Mary Rocha thanked the parents who made an effort to make a difference in getting the youth involved in activities. She also thanked the volunteers.

IMG_2961Councilman Tony Tiscareno proclaimed his love of the San Francisco Giants and how this was a great day for Antioch because of all the participation from parents.

“I am in the spirit as I love baseball and love the San Francisco Giants,” said Tiscareno. “This program has been out here for a few years and want to thank the Antioch Police Activities League, the City Recreation Department and all the parents and volunteers. This is a great thing to have. I want everyone to have a great time, you want to win that is one thing, but make sure you have a fun time.”

IMG_2967Antioch Police Chief Allen Cantando thanked his Police Activities League Board and staff for organizing the season.

“The real clapping should be for the parents who are out here because we have a community that is strong, the parents care for their kids and makes our police departments job easier because you come out here and support your kids and those are the kids we are never going to see in the police department and that is a great thing so thank you so much,” said Cantando. “This program is 600 kids strong so thank you.”
