AntiWood Power

I began AntiWood with a vision. A vision of creating one media source for two cities. I have received positive feedback from many, but I am still in need of assistance.

I've been launching a "viral marketing" campaign through inspirational writings. I want people to believe in the idea and try to make it happen. It could be a fun project that generates revenue for both cities forever. A .com based on ourselves. That's what AntiWood is.

Here is another inspirational writing called "AntiWood Power." I would like to thank those who have supported this venture so far. This is still the beginning. Be patient.

Merry Christmas.


"AntiWood Power"

We hold the power. There is nowhere in the Bay Area with undeveloped quality land like Antioch and Brentwood. We have the power to make THEM come work here...instead of us going to work there. The question is how do we do that?

What will be the next symbol of AntiWood?

#1. We develop an infastructure before the expansion. Transportation needs to be up to par. The goal is to move people in and out of the area in an orderly manner. I have learned from working in a restaurant that to make money you need a steady flow of people. We will encourage new companies to stagger their workweeks. People stay up late nowadays on the West Coast. 9-5? How about that 12-8. Or 11-7. The system is too stagnant. We need to switch it up to meet our needs.

#2. We use the environment to our advantage. A lot of people underappreciate the beauty of Antioch and Brentwood. We attract people to work in our city by giving them a calm setting to work around. Will skilled workers of the 21st century want to work in a congested city? Or have a view of Mt. Diablo on their 3rd floor balcony? I think we all know the answer to that. That's why we live out here.

#3. Develop We find a team of web designers to work on the project. We discover young reporters to post video news reports on the blog. We see a $12 blog turn into a two-city project right before our eyes. The question you need to ask yourself is if you build it will they come? You know what they say "Start building and find out."

Don't forget about the 3 M's. Money. We're relentless in getting money. We will make money every second of every day. Morals. We go about things in a transparent way. We look to set an example for the community. Modernization. There's only one chance to develop land in the real world. We can't screw this up.

Antioch Police To Layoff 6 Officers

According to the Antioch Police Officers Assocation the Antioch City Council has announced that 6 officers will be layed off when the new year hits January 1st.  This is a step in the wrong direction for a department already short-staffed. To express your concerns the APOA encourages citizens to attend city council meetings. Something needs to be done to get these 6 officers back on the street.

The AntiWood Recipe

The AntiWood Recipe

Our goal is to bring people together by following these ingredients:

#1. Provide useful information. Never anything shallow. We are not TMZ. We want to build a community and not tear one apart. We are the humble voice of the community.

#2. Food is good. As we expand Antioch and Brentwood we place an emphasis our own restaurant industry. We have a lot of undiscovered places that need to be discovered. Once our all roads connect we will attract people from other cities to come eat here. Innovation means better quality food at a faster rate. Speed of service will be everything in this new economy.

#3. Money is advancement. To build up our local city budgets we need to start generating constant sources of revenue. When that does happen we switch to survival mode. We learn from governments of the past. The less greedy we get the more stability we get. The more stability we get the happier people are. We need to see how it feels to be in surplus. Big surplus.

#4. Modernization is everything. AntiWood's goal is to create a company that helps modernize Antioch and Brentwood.

#5. Our motto is: "If you build it...they will come." We place an emphasis on building things. This could be anything from a twenty story office building to a new lesson plan from a history teacher. We want to show others that everything in life is built. Nothing comes from thin air. We want to turn a recession into a boom. How do we do that? Build something. - Now Hiring.

APD Press Conference - 4:30

KRON 4 is reporting that Antioch Police will be hosting a press conference to discuss the dragging murder by Cavallo. We will update any new information as it comes out.

UPDATE: A man in a Nissan Frontier dragged a female to her death around 1:50 A.M. this morning at the corner of Cavallo and East 18th in Antioch. He has been idenitified as Brentwood resident Lucio Rivera-Avila. The victim has been identified as Shelly Baker (Age 47).

Avila and Baker were together that night in the same vehicle. As they got in a dispute Baker tried to exit the vehicle and Avila ran her over multiple times. There is video of the incident from a local gas station, but the Antioch Police have decided to not release it to the media. They would like to see the case tried in Contra Costa County and releasing the video would jeopardize that.

Avila is a convicted felon. Police searched his Brentwood residence and found an unlawful firearm. Later tonight he will be transported from the Antioch jail to the Contra Costa County jail.
