Discovery Bay July 2015

I remember hauling lumber out to contractors back in the early 1970's. Back then contractors would buy a lot, built a custom home on it, and then sell it. Then they would buy another lot and do it all over again. That's how Discovery Bay got started.

Community Events Calendar

Antioch Panthers Roll Acalanes Dons 62-7 in Opener

It was great fun watching a football game from the same seat I did back in 1969. I was back to see the new field and Panther sensation Najee Harris. The stadium is excellent and Antioch's junior running back didn't disappoint. The Panthers racked up 500 yards rushing last week. Friday's home game will be a much tougher against bay area ranked Milpitas High. As a senior my ticket is just $5 (inexpensive entertainment). Go Panthers! Varsity Game starts at 7 PM.
