California dad shares meningitis B warning after infection kills teen daughter 'within 36 hours'

Connecting Success Factors to Bennett

Sara Stelzer’s life was just beginning when it was tragically cut short.

At 18, Sara — a smart, loving and thoughtful girl — was a freshman at San Diego State University when, one Saturday in October of 2014, she called her parents to complain of a bad headache. Her headache soon was paired with exhaustion and nausea, leading the teen to sleep through some of her classes after the weekend was over.

“We thought it was the flu — we told her to rest and go to the student health center. She was more concerned with missing classes than how bad she felt,” Sara’s father, Greg Stelzer, 63, told Fox News.

But Sara then developed a blotchy, purple rash — what her parents would later learn was a sign of meningitis B.


“For us, this has been like therapy — it’s Sara’s legacy. It keeps her memory alive," said Greg. (Greg Stelzer)

Sara was in the emergency room by Tuesday morning, a friend of Sara’s informed Greg and his wife Laurie via text message. By the time they drove to the hospital from the Los Angeles area later that afternoon, Sara was in an induced coma.

Though Sara’s doctors, after determining she contracted bacterial meningitis, started the teen on antibiotics, it was too late: the virus had spread to her brain and spinal cord. By the time her parents reached her, she was brain dead.

“In our minds, that was when she passed away,” said Greg.

In less than two days, their daughter was gone.


“We had no idea that these flu-like symptoms could develop and kill her within 36 hours,” Laurie, 51, told Yahoo Lifestyle.

Meningococcal disease is primarily caused by five types of meningococcal bacteria — A, C, W, Y and B. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendschildren between ages 11 and 12 receive a meningococcal conjugate vaccine and receive a booster at 16 to prevent against serogroups A, C, W and Y. In addition, those age 16 to 23 can also receive a serogroup B meningococcal vaccine, the agency added.

Sara received the meningococcal conjugate vaccine her father said, but not the serogroup B meningococcal vaccine.

One of the main meningococcal serogroup B vaccines — Trumenba — was first licensed in the U.S. in 2014, before another — Bexsero — became available in 2015, per the Immunization Action Coalition.

San Ramon Valley High freshman’s death in pool not suicide; ruled an accident and caught on video

The School Board of Riddles and Lies

DANVILLE — For nearly a month, classmates suspected that San Ramon Valley High School freshman Benjamin Curry killed himself, opinions shared by local media. But an autopsy report, obtained exclusively by this news agency Tuesday, determined that the teenager died of an accidental drowning while attending swim class.
Now the question is how it could have happened.
Video of the pool area as class ended showed the 15-year-old Danville resident going under the water, and other students swimming to the edge of the pool and getting out and leaving the facility, according to the autopsy report. It wasn’t until an hour later, when a new swim class entered the area, that Curry’s body was spotted at the bottom of the pool.
The fact that the school did not act strongly to counteract the rumors that their son committed suicide led Curry’s family to hire attorney Andy Schwartz. The district, he says, let the incorrect story of a suicide swirl for weeks despite the immediate knowledge of surveillance footage capturing the accident and the context of Curry participating in his normally scheduled swim class when the accident happened.
“Class was dismissed without him and the teacher in charge of the class left Benjamin behind. The school knew that and didn’t make the effort to correct the false narrative that they knew was out there,” said Schwartz, adding that Curry knew how to swim. “He was found in his bathing suit. He went swimming. He didn’t commit suicide.”
San Ramon Valley Unified School District spokeswoman Elizabeth Graswich said they could not comment on an active police investigation and directed questions to Danville police or coroner officials.
“Our thoughts continue to be with the student’s family and loved ones, as well as our students and staff,” she said.

The 16-page Contra Costa County Coroner’s Office autopsy and toxicology report provides the clearest picture yet of what happened that May 8 afternoon on the Danville campus, and it contradicts media reports where students speculated on camera that Curry may have intentionally drowned himself because he had tried to kill himself before.
The freshman, wearing a black swimsuit, as noted by forensic pathologist Dr. Arnold Josselson, attended his normal fourth period physical education swimming class from 11:40 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Rhoton reported seeing Curry in the pool with “multiple” other students at the end of class around 12:30 p.m.
“He observed the decedent submerge and not surface. It did not appear any other students were involved with the decedent going under water,” the report said. “Due to camera angles, it was unclear if the decedent remained under the surface of the water or if he surfaced in another area of the pool.”
As class ended, other students were seen swimming to the edge of the pool and leaving the pool area, but due to camera angles, it was unclear if Curry left the pool or if he remained in the pool, the coroner’s deputy wrote. The video showed no more activity until 1:40 p.m. when the fifth period swim class arrived after the lunch break, Schwartz said.
About 10 minutes after the start of the swim session, some students observed their classmate underwater and alerted a different P.E. teacher who jumped into the pool and removed Curry with help from students, according to the report.

An excerpt from a Contra Costa County Coroner’s Office autopsy report shows investigators do not believe Benjamin Curry killed himself. 

That teacher alerted staff and began CPR. Rhoton was notified via radio at 1:51 p.m., and assisted with life-saving measures until emergency crews arrived, the report said. Curry was taken to Kaiser hospital in Walnut Creek, where he was declared dead.
The toxicology report found “therapeutic levels” of antidepressants and a trace amount of marijuana in Curry’s system, but investigators did not indicate either played any role in his death.
The report also indicated Curry had a history of depression and anxiety, and a family member told investigators he had “suicidal ideations,” but in the end they found no evidence Curry tried to kill himself.
“Although the decedent suffered from depression, there is no indication the decedent intended to drown himself,” the coroner concluded.
“He was a popular young man,” Schwartz said. “You read in media reports that he was bullied, but it doesn’t appear to be the case.”
On the day of the accident, San Ramon Valley High principal Jason Krolikowski told the East Bay Times the public should not speculate about a cause before a thorough investigation could be completed.
“I know there are a lot of rumors and students asking questions,” he said at the time. “It is important that we continue to discourage the spreading of rumors and give Danville police time to complete their investigation.”
In media reports in the days after Curry’s death, classmates speculated that he killed himself due to struggles with mental illness and bullying. Schwartz said that perception has continued over the last month and devastated the family.
“It just adds to their pain,” he said. “It’s your worst nightmare as a parent.”
One student told the East Bay Times that he had seen Curry in the locker right before class started, happy and laughing.
“This is an unspeakable tragedy,” Schwartz said. “He was a wonderful young man.”

My first meeting with Hillside Covenant Church was Christmas 2010 and they seemed genuine. Their youth director friended me around May 2011 but unknown was Hillside's connection to a Concord City Councilman whose grandson died under highly suspicious circumstances in Las Vegas. I learned about events via his daughter who like many sought me out in 2014.

Obit: The Clare Orton Murder and Orton Development

WALNUT CREEK — Two promising students — one a freshman at San Diego State and the other who studied engineering at Stanford University — died Tuesday in what police said looked like a murder-suicide in a home just north of Ygnacio Valley Road.
Clare Orton, a 19-year-old majoring in environmental engineering in San Diego, was found dead in her parents’ Walnut Creek home off Homestead Avenue. Also there was the body of Scott Bertics, a 21-year-old Lafayette resident who had attended Stanford.
Police called to the neighborhood around 6:50 a.m. said they found the two dead from gunshot wounds inside a home on Holton Court.
The two knew each other and had dated, police said.
She had graduated from Las Lomas High School in 2014 and he from Acalanes in Lafayette in 2012. Both were interested in engineering and both were long distance runners on the track teams at their high schools.
Orton’s family lived in the home for more than 10 years, said neighbor Linda Darnsteadt.
The “very pleasant” college student was visiting her home for the summer break from San Diego State, where she had completed her first year, Darnsteadt said.
“I’m just so sad. That’s so tragic,” she said.
Darnsteadt and her husband Gary said that they did not hear gunshots.
“We knew something tragic had happened, but we didn’t know what,” Linda Darnsteadt said. Police cars filled the cul-de-sac until noonOrton was an honors student at San Diego State, according to a school merit page. Her Facebook page includes a reference to membership in the Society of Women Engineers at San Diego State and to the Eco-Action Club at Las Lomas High School in Walnut Creek.
For a photo of a rainbow posted on her Facebook page, she wrote, “When the sunrise is underwhelming, turn around, you may see a double rainbow.”
Bertics was on leave of absence from Stanford and last attended the school in the fall of 2014, a school spokesman said.
Stanford’s website lists Bertics as a member of a team that in 2013 worked on project called “Controlling Robot Dynamics with Spiking Neurons.” He is also credited in a 2014 paper by some of the same team members for developing the driver interface in a project titled: “Controlling Articulated Robots in Task-Space with Spiking Silicon Neurons.”
A 2011 Github entry shows his pleasure at winning an animation code award. “I wrote this program during the summer quarter in 2011 and it won the Stanford CS106A graphics contest!”
Bertics also had a YouTube channel called “sbertics” on which he put videos of his projects, but the newest videos were of glider flights over Oahu in Hawaii. His electronic device videos were three years old.
Walnut Creek police would like to hear from anyone who might have information about what happened. They can be reached at 925-943-5844.

City Manager Ken Nordoff

The City of Walnut Creek has far too many suicides, dubious jumpers, and has a history of covering up investigations. 
The City Manager resigned effective Dec. 31, 2016 but my first successful use of the Brown Act occurred on Nov 2nd, 2011. 
Not knowing the specifics of the Brown Act uses and timing relevant to the Agenda Items.  I stood up. 
Later I learned one of my oldest customers Bill Hoot was ranting at the correct time.  We basically said the same thing to the Council. 
We’ve been robbed, our cases are stalled and the Walnut Creek Police were corrupt. 

Pete Bennett was holding a protest at the B of A tech Center in 2003, a year later just about every employee at the Town of Danville witnessed Bennett’s truck explode.  I know I have witnesses and those employed in Danville could end up dead like my other witness. 

The prior day I’d met with City Manager Ken Nordoff and then Chief Joel Bryden.   There was late June conversation with Bryden about the recent Federal Indictments of officers connected to the Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Taskforce linked to an attack by Gary Vinson Collins who was a building inspector who nearly beat me to death in my house.  
The Bennett/Bryden/Nordoff meeting was about Bennett v.  Collins (2004) with then Chief Chris Wenzel.

Two Las Lomas High School graduates & a Lincoln man were killed in an overnight accident in Sacramento County.
The two Walnut Creek natives were 18-year-old Christian Bishop and 20-year-old Maurice Waters.
Watch the video above for more information on the crash.

Maurice is my boss’ son…such a tragedy 
2 George June 3, 2011 at 6:16 PM
Speeding, stop sign, drinking, gambeling, speed, no seat belts– yup- sounds mlike Lafayette kids–the rules do not apply to them
3 lady britannia June 3, 2011 at 6:22 PM
These young men were drinking at Jackson Rancheria? Fake id’s, driver’s licenses??? If this is not a prime example of underage drinking and driving and it’s deadly consequences.
4 June 3, 2011 at 6:23 PM
Sad. . .
5 MyDeathspace June 3, 2011 at 6:23 PM
Sad. Sounds like high speeds and drinking were likely involved. Slow down people!
6 Mad Mom June 3, 2011 at 6:31 PM
So sad. Please…be careful out there and slow down.

So So sad RIP deepest sympathies to family and friends.

My thoughts and prayers are with the familys. The pain they have is more than I hope I ever have.
11 anonamom June 3, 2011 at 7:25 PM
You only have to be 18 to gamble at Jackson Rancheria. They do not serve alcohol! They are out in the boonies, a few miles away from anyplace that does serve alcohol, so if there was drinking involved, they did not get it at Rancheria.
12 anonamom June 3, 2011 at 7:29 PM
George: You win the piss-ant a-hole award.
13 June 3, 2011 at 8:12 PM
Please remember family and friends will read this, My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of these kids, Remember, you were once young too.
14 Beacon June 3, 2011 at 8:14 PM
George – Pull your head out of your ass and start paying attention. It has nothing to do with where they live or what high school they went to. Most young men think they’re invincible. I know I did when I was 18. It’s just that most of us lived to remember the many stupid things we did. It’s a tragedy that these young men didn’t.
15 June 3, 2011 at 8:17 PM
Thanks for that information anonamom. I guess gambling and drinking go hand in hand and these guys decided to find the booze. Just because you arrive at 18 and THINK your an adult doesn’t mean that you ARE an adult. So many adults aren’t even so called adults!!
16 George June 3, 2011 at 8:24 PM
I know many cops that worked in Lafayette, WC, Danville, Orinda & other upper class areas-they told me all about it…the parents gave them cars at 16 & the parents were 100% into their social life & the kids did whatever they wanted..when they leave home– they continue partying, drinking & doing stupid things..Karma is a bitch– deal with it
17 I think June 3, 2011 at 9:12 PM
I think they do serve alcohol. Last time I was there they had a bar next to the burger place. They also served alcohol if you were gambling. I haven’t been therd in about a year but you could get drinks.
So sad for the families.

This is so sad and it comes after the rafting accident a few months ago that involved 2 Las Lomas students.

22 Mimi (original) June 3, 2011 at 11:11 PM
Oh no! Oh no! Is this the beginning oh the “senior-itis” tragedies? This recurrent theme is so sad and tragic! My own offspring us a graduating senior and I hold my breath each evening when they don’t arrive home on time. I just want them to survive their graduation celebrations to continue their burgeoning lives. Please, let’s pray for everyone in the class of 2011.
23 quinn June 4, 2011 at 12:19 AM
the DRIVER of the car was 26.
I hope you know your negative attitudes about innocent kids is going to come back to you, and I hope you never have to face this tragedy with your own kids one day, because I bet you won’t too pleased when some ignorant jackass writes on a blog the way you have about these kids.
get a life douchebag.
24 So sad June 4, 2011 at 12:40 AM
This is a terribly tragic occurrence. Three families are forever changed, two young men (and a Lincoln man). My sympathies to all of the families.
25 June 4, 2011 at 7:03 AM
“Please remember family and friends will read this,”
Its a blog people….its their choice to read this.
Also- live fast, play hard….die young
Missy.. it appears you do not work the streets of WC,,,but trust me– the kids there think they are above the law & yes..cops do talk about what goes on with their friends…

I knew both these dudes.
For everyone in this world that says things like “everything is meant to be” is so full of bull its rediculous. ANYTHING can happen in this life. be real. dnt waste it
28 Crystal June 4, 2011 at 5:00 PM
my name is Crystal Waters. Maurice Waters is my brother, and is only younger than me by 10 months. Christian Bishop was a very close friend of both of my brothers and he, as well as his family, are near and dear to my family. First of all to that S0B George, those kids were not “Lafayette Kids.” And even if they were they were human beings who belonged to families who love them. Yes, they are too young to be drinking but they were not in control of that car someone else was. Accidents happen and regardless of the situation any loss is a tragic one so haw dare you speak so carelessly abt those kids. I really hope you are not as heartless as you made yourself look and I pray that if/when it is your sibling or loved one that is up for debate, you think about what you’ve posted and how disrespectful it was to me and my family.
29 Connie Dobbs June 4, 2011 at 6:56 PM
Oh, jeez.
I am all ready to take you seriously.
30 Mother June 4, 2011 at 8:19 PM
Condolences for your family. My son knew your brother and Christian and liked them both. They were good kids. Disregard all the stupid comments. Some people just have no compassion.
31 @ George June 4, 2011 at 9:41 PM
“I know many cops that worked in Lafayette, WC, Danville, Orinda & other upper class areas-they told me all about it…”
This is the Appeal To Authority argumentative fallacy…which basically means you claim “to know” some authority figure(s) on a particular subject, as if that somehow lends credence to what you have to say. It doesn’t. It means you’re full of shit.
32 June 4, 2011 at 10:25 PM
#11 Jackson Rancheria does sell alcohol for sure. Yes it is 18 and over casino but they do sell alcohol.
Sad event. Truely I am sorry for the family and friends BUT they are very lucky their stupidity did not kill somone else. When you break the law there are consequences…why you think we have laws so things like this do not happen (if people were respectful enough to obey them). Speeding, drinking, no seat belts three strikes you’re out…sorry. I am sorry for the family really but there are always consequences to your actions.

You really should avoid the X.
35 Crystal June 5, 2011 at 11:57 AM
Thanks @Mother and everyone for your kind words. I am not in any denial that what they were doing was irresposible and dangerous. What I do not like, and I will not be silent about is any attitudes suggesting they deserved death. Death is not something ANYBODY deserves. It is a sad, inevitable part of life. They suffered their consequences in full but never ever say “that’s wat they get.” For those who do not know, Christian Bishop’s funeral will be in Sacramento, CA on Wednesday, June 8th. Maurice’s will be in Union City, CA on Thursday, June 9th. Feel free to contact whomever it may concern for more detailed information
36 Crystal June 5, 2011 at 12:15 PM
I apologize if it seems that I’m negelecting the familes of Kevin M. (The sole survivor) and Chris (the driver whom is also deceased). I did not know them and I have not heard any updates. But my heart goes out to those families.
37 Dobey June 5, 2011 at 6:31 PM
George you’re an ignorant and arrogant idiot. “I know many cops in upper class areas they told me… Blah blah blah”
If anything, the parents are older and more mature and educated in the wealthy areas, not young parents “100% into their social lives”
Stop and observe the tragic loss of two kids and stop being a judgmental piece of sh*t
Despite the circumstance, these were young kids. Boys will be boys, they weren’t criminals, they made bad choice as teenagers do, and it got them killed.
You’re worse than scum on the button of my shoe. Deal with it.
38 Krystal T. June 6, 2011 at 2:28 AM
It’s Krystal (Krissy) from New Hope.
I offer many thousands of condolences and prayers to you and the family right now. Find joy in the fact that Maurice knew The Lord and that he’s in a place you me and everyone else is working toward getting to. Know that one day you will see his face again and that he’s with our Heavenly Father. Love you all. See you all Thursday.
Bless you.
39 Robin June 6, 2011 at 8:56 AM
You are brave and strong to write here, and we all appreciate it. Because we are hurting too at the loss of young men, even if we didn’t know them personally. We know how much it hurts the families and as part of the community, we hurt with you. Anyone with a heart feels for your loss, and your family’s. Don’t waste your time with jerks like George. The people who count are here with you, even if they don’t know you, like me. My daughter knew your brother (she’s a good friend of your other brother) and what I know is that everyone who knew or has heard about this (unlike the “Georges” out there), is terribly sad. We all know at any one point in our lives it couldn’t have happened to us as teens or could happen to our teens. You are right, the non-drivers were not in control of that car. And even the driver didn’t deserve this outcome. No one does. We are all lucky to live past mistakes, only some are not as lucky who don’t. Hold onto the good memories of your brother and his friend and know they’re at peace even though this time is hard for you and your families.
40 Amanda June 6, 2011 at 9:48 AM
@“I know many cops that worked in Lafayette, WC, Danville, Orinda & other upper class areas-they told me all about it…”
George you are an ignorant bast****! What how much money or lack there of does not make it remotely ok for you to claim that is why this happened, anyone is capable of making a life changing mistake. I am sure you are no saint!. JEALOUSY is not a valid argument in disrespecting the families that lost loved ones. I pity you! My prayers go out to the families of those involed in this crash!
41 Caryl Robinson June 6, 2011 at 10:43 AM
To make heartless and insensitive comments about this tragedy is inexcusable. Maurice was my husband’s second cousin and we have pictures of him and Marquis along with our grandson Darrell a couple of years ago at his grandmother’s home on the 4th of July. Doug will be there on Wednesday. Stay strong Crystal. Our prayers are with you and your family.
42 HowSad June 6, 2011 at 12:19 PM
What a sad tragedy. I’m so sorry! My deepest condolences to all the families and friends. So Sorry!
As for the comments about “UPPER class” areas. It’s too bad people think that way, it just divides us further. I have known nasty crooked people who are both rich and poor. There are “Upper class” people in ALL areas where we live and breath. Material wealth and geographic area have nothing to do with being classy. Attitude makes us classy.

Thanks again everybody for the kind words and support. Hey to Krissy and aunty out there, see u guys soon. Today I just wanted to post that the students of Las Lomas H.S. are going to have a candlelight ceremony for Christian and Maurice tomorrow evening at the school I believe. (Will update). In that time we will not only remember Christian and Maurice, but the 2 fallen Knights who were lost recently in a rafting accident, and the dearly missed Knight who was murdered by his mother on Mt. Diablo last year. All are definately welcome to join.

Love you so much Crystal, this is Nanette from NHBC. Quinton’s mom. I will be there along with my mother sister Davis tonight. God bless you and your mother. All me and my mom could say was all three of you were always smiling and your mom loves you all and it always showed. Maurice was one of my students in my vacation bible school class so funny and always gave me hugs. God Bless.

We Need Nationwide Stand Down: 2 NYPD police officers 'assassinated'; shooter dead

 Unnecessary loss of lives on both sides no matter how mad you get don't shoot.  Retreat is an option.  

This is where the realities of one problem become the guttural of another problem.   I've endured knowing officers and victims killed on both sides.  In story like this both sides lose as we have more children without fathers or more families without sons.  

New York (CNN)  -- Officer Rafael Ramos sat in the driver's seat. Officer Wenjian Liu was at his side.
The two cops weren't at their usual precinct -- normally, the pair was assigned to downtown Brooklyn, but they were working a "critical response" detail in an area with higher crime, police said.
That's where they were slain, ambush-style -- Saturday afternoon as they sat in their patrol car, New York Police Commissioner William Bratton said at an evening news conference.

The gunman approached the passenger side of the patrol car and took a shooting stance, witnesses told police. He opened fire several times, striking both officers in the head, Bratton said.
