READERS’ COMMENTS
Gun control
Dear Editor: Recently we’ve all heard discussions and proposals on gun control. These have all been about an assault weapons ban, the Second Amendment, the NRA, background checks, improved mental health access, pervasive video violence, etc. But none that I’ve heard have addressed what I consider the real problem: the American culture, which has long been enamored by guns. The media have been able to turn our populace against smoking, drunk driving, certain drugs, obesity, even red meat! They should simply add guns to this list.

Sticking to her guns
Dear Editor: I read the open letter to gun owners in the January 23 edition of the COURIER and had to laugh at the recommendation that NRA members should give up their membership, “as the NRA does not represent the sensible gun owner.” As an NRA member, I have been able to access classes such as “Refuse to be a

victim,” which teaches a variety of crime prevention strategies from criminal psychology to auto crimes to cyber crime and some physical combat self-defense tools. It isn’t even a firearms course. That seems sensible to me. Also, there is the Eddie Eagle program teaching pre-K through third grade children how to avoid gun accidents with the admonition: “If you see a gun, stop! Don’t touch. Leave the area. Tell an adult.” Approximately 18 million children in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico have been through the class. That seems sensible to me, too. My favorite take away from my NRA “Gun Safety for Women” class was that the average response time to a 911 call can be 10 to 23 minutes depending on the city. The response time of a .357 [Magnum revolver] is 1400 feet per second. I think I would rather occupy a burglar with my .357 in case the police were delayed by traffic. Oh…and as a sensible gun owner, I think I’ll do the sensible thing and keep my NRA membership active.

Claremont woman helps police catch serial burglars
A Claremont woman helped put 3 men behind bars after a north Claremont home invasion Tuesday afternoon. Police believe the trio of Long Beach residents has been involved in a string of residential burglaries throughout Los Angeles and Orange counties. Nancy Staples was at her daughter’s home in the 2300 block of Oxford Avenue when she heard a knock at the door. She peered out a window and because the man at the door was someone she didn’t recognize, Ms. Staples left the knock unanswered. Though the CRIME man walked away, he soon returned with another in tow. They knocked on the door again. When no one answered the second time, the men proceeded to enter the home through an unlocked side garage door, according to Ms. Staples, who barricaded herself in a bedroom and called the police. Claremont police officers arrived as the 2 men were fleeing the home with stolen electronics. Both subjects were arrested a mere 25 feet from the house. A third individual found in a car parked nearby believed to be the getaway driver in the burglary was also arrested. Police searched the man’s silver Jeep Cherokee and found at least 8 bags filled with stolen jewelry, according to Lieutenant Shelly Vander Veen. The subjects who entered the home, 22-year-old Edwin Santiago of Long Beach and a 17-year-old minor, and the driver, 23-year-old Martin Campos, also of Long Beach, were arrested for burglary. Both the minor and Mr. Campos were already on probation for burglary, according to police. While investigation continues, Mr. Campos’ bail has been set at $120,000 while Mr. Santiago is being held at $50,000. The minor was sent to Los Padrinos in Downey where he awaits court proceedings. The incident on Oxford Avenue was the second botched burglary attempt in Claremont this week, according to police. On Thursday, January 24, a resident in the 1400 block of Benedict Avenue received a similar house call and, like Ms. Staples, did not answer. Soon after the knock at the door, the resident heard a noise in the rear of the house as an unknown subject attempted to pry open a window, according to Lt. Vander Veen. The resident was able to activate a house alarm before entry was made. Police were unable to locate the subject. A connection between the 2 incidents is unknown. Claremont residents were put on further alert the day following the Oxford Avenue burglary when the Los Angeles Times reported that a Times newspaper deliveryman had, over a 3 year period, given burglars a list of subscribers who had placed vacation holds on their subscriptions. According to the report, a majority of the resulting burglaries took place “along the 210 Freeway in eastern LA County and western San Bernardino County.” More than $100,000 worth of stolen items have been recovered over the past 6 months in connection with burglaries throughout San Gabriel Valley, including Diamond Bar, Walnut and Chino Hills. Residents who believe they may have been victim to these crimes are told to call the CPD Detective Bureau at 399-5420, as they are working with de-

tectives from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department to identify victims. In recent months, Claremont police have noted an upturn in the city’s burglaries, which include residential burglaries, auto burglaries and vehicle theft, according to Captain Jon Traber in an interview earlier this month. Despite concerns over increased crime, in a recent letter

to the public published the same day as the Oxford Avenue burglary, Chief of Police Paul Cooper insists that crime in Claremont actually remains low. While the city’s Part I crimes, broken up into 2 categories—violent crimes and property crimes—increased 7 percent, or 70 additional crimes in 2012, it remains the fourth lowest level of Part I crimes reported since 1985, according to Chief Cooper. “To really put things in perspective, in 1985 there were 1,661 Part I crimes or 714 more crimes than last year,” he wrote. Police ask the help of residents to continue to keep crime down, advising them to lock doors and windows, report suspicious crime and sign up for the police department’s E-Watch electronic mail program and Everbridge mass calling system. Both programs will ensure residents are kept abreast of city crime. “With the changes to our criminal justice system, I don’t want to see us return to the crime levels of the past, but it will take a concerted effort on the part of everyone,” Mr. Cooper continued. “The men and women in your police department are committed to keeping the Claremont community safe. My door is always open and I welcome any questions or suggestions you may have.”

laremont’s annual State of the City address, delivered in front of hundreds of guests at the Candlelight Pavilion Tuesday afternoon, can be summed up in a singular phrase offered by Mayor Larry Schroeder: “We’re doing well.”
Just how well was dished out in more explicit details moments later as councilmembers delivered highlights on 2012’s outstanding accomplishments while likewise discussing the year ahead. As the city looks forward to exciting new prospects in town—a potential Stone Brewery to be situated near the Depot and the prospect of a second large grocery store retailer in south Claremont—residents and administrators exuded pride in the city’s direction. “The city is moving forward,” Mr. Schroeder announced. “We are moving forward on economic development, infrastructure projects and planning for the future of our community.” A $1.8 million surplus in the city’s finances as reported in July has allowed the city to pursue dreamed-of expansions in the year ahead, Mayor Pro Tem Opanyi Nasiali added. Opportunities provided by the fiscal surplus include the hire of 2 new police officers and additional staffers, such as the hiring of Community and Human Services Director Kathleen Trepa in September, as well as capital projects to the

Pilgrim Place offers fellowships to aspiring local students

P

ilgrim Place will hold its third annual Napier Awards ceremony on Saturday, February 9. Anne Napier Caffery, the daughter of the Napiers, who were longtime residents at Pilgrim Place, will serve as keynote speaker for the reception and banquet.

Each year, 2 local students who have been working on projects promoting social justice and world peace assisted by residents/mentors at Pilgrim Place, are awarded $10,000 Napier Fellowships. The 2013 nominees include 8 Claremont College students working to make a difference in an array of areas, including: LaThelma Armstrong (Scripps College), who proposes to host summer workshops for African-American teens challenging negative representations of black girls in the media; Jared Calvert (Pitzer College), who hopes to work with Inland Con-

gregations United for Change to increase minority voting and student power in educational policy; Rachel Conrad, who hopes to continue research in Ecuador to help inform the development of a sustainable water-management plan that is just to local farmers; and Ivette Guadarrama (Pomona College), who proposes to implement a year-long program in Chicago where young women of color can be empowered through artistic expression and a sense of community. Also in the running for a Napier Award are Tiffany Yi-mei Liu (Harvey Mudd College), who hopes to travel to Kenya, leading a small team of college students to design and build a water-filtration system for a boarding school in Ngomano; Erikan Obotefukudo (Claremont McKenna College), who plans to travel to Brazil, working in partnership with health organizations to organize group workshops and community outreach endeavors engaging men on the issues of masculinity, men’s health, self-care and gender equal-

ity; Erika Parks (Pomona College), who proposes to continue work with Crossroads, a residential program for women released from prison, in order to develop a support network of Crossroads alumna for the purposes of empowerment and mentorship; Caitlin Watkins (Pitzer College), who hopes to continue to implement a program she has developed for Crossroads called Fallen Fruit from Rising Women, in which the clients create and sell food products from donated produce; and Lucas Wrench (Pomona College), a studio arts major who hopes to purchase a van that can serve as Mobile Repair Unit. It would be used to take Earn-A-Bike classes to 2 Ontario high schools, where students would learn to build and repair bikes from donated recycled parts, and to distribute and repair bikes at day-laborer centers. With this year’s awards, Pilgrim Place will have donated about $75,000 to students involved in philanthropic social projects.

Church pastor says goodbye after extended medical leave
The congregation at the Claremont United Church of Christ, Congregational has said goodbye to Senior Pastor Rob Patton, who resigned from his post earlier this month. He submitted his resignation after a prolonged medical leave. “I cannot fully express my emotions connected with this transition,” Rev. Patton wrote in a letter to the public. Rev. Patton came to CUCC in April 2008 after serving at St. Stephen United Church of Christ in his native Ohio. In the years following he has immersed himself in numerous organizations throughout the San Gabriel region and Claremont community, including the Institutional Ethics Board of Pomona Valley Medical Center Hospital, the Claremont Interfaith Council and Interfaith Working Group for Middle East Peace. CUCC will be holding a worship service of celebration and reception tomorrow, Sunday, February 3, at 10 a.m. to honor Rev. Patton’s service. There will be no 8:15 a.m. service. oner Release program, we anticipate an increase in property crime due to more criminals being released into our communities. In just the past few weeks, we have seen an increase in residential and vehicular burglaries,” Mr. Calaycay said. “Our detectives are working on solving these crimes and have apprehended several suspects. “Many of these burglaries are crimes of opportunity, so we will look into additional resources to address these crimes and focus on educating the community on crime prevention and the importance of reporting suspicious activity to prevent these burglaries,” Mr. Calaycay continued. The city will continue to draw upon its community partnerships in hopes of matching, if not exceeding, this year’s success. According to Mr. Schroeder, “We have a lot to look forward to.”

tune of $395,000. Additionally, the city has set up a series of reserves, including the Equipment and Facility Revolving Reserve fund, for what Mr. Nasiali referred to as “rainy day” contingencies. The city’s total reserves increased from 26.7 percent to 29 percent. The surplus, and creation of a balanced 2-year budget taking the city through 2014, paved the way for city improvements, both those that have already taken place and others soon to come. Development highlights of 2012 include the opening of the Super King Market, Peppertree Square renovations, new retail and live/work space in Village West and improvements to the Claremont Promenade. “We have been very busy,” Mr. Nasiali said. The council noted that renewed business synergy is reflective of the city faring well through economic recovery.

Last year’s 15 percent retail vacancy has fallen to 9 percent, according to Eric Westedt, the city’s consultant with CB Richard Ellis real estate company. “If you compare that to our neighboring markets, they are north of 10. Certain parts are 17 percent,” Mr. Westedt noted. And Mr. Westedt expects the city’s retail vacancy to continue to decrease. Mr. Westedt announced that he and other city officials recently met with representatives of a major national retailer with regards to potential expansion at Peppertree Square. He expects a deal to be finalized within the next several months.  Escondido-based microbrewery Stone Brewery Company is looking to expand into Los Angeles County and Mr. Westedt says it is his goal to bring them to Claremont. “The attitude has changed,” Mr. Westedt said. “It used to be everybody was doom and gloom, and now it’s about, ‘Lets make things happen. It’s

time to get things done again.’”

As the city continues to sail forward, thanks to excess funds and prudent budgeting, the council maintains its focus on economic development along with fiscal stability, sustainability and local water issues. “These priorities are overarching concepts and issues that will be incorporated into the way staff and council conducts its businesses,” Councilmember Corey Calaycay said.
Councilmembers also addressed the recent rise in crime, and the city’s plan to address these problems. “Public safety is always a priority for the city and with the state’s Early Pris-

Building and protecting Claremont’s post office
by Ginger Elliott

P

ostmaster Ruth Powell didn’t like it; neither did Leila Ackerman, secretary of the Claremont Chamber of Commerce. The federal government’s supervising architect was learning that his plans for Claremont’s post office did not meet the exacting standards of 2 of Claremont’s strong women.

They managed to have the plans redrawn. The building was moved back 30 extra feet from Harvard Avenue, so it would match the setbacks of the city hall and the Spanish Revival Library on the adjoining corners. They also asked for changes to the roofline and doorway and finally an acceptable design was reached. By July of 1936, the building was completed. With a few changes it is the same building we see today. The beautiful carved wooden front door has been replaced with an aluminum one and a handicap ramp has been built on the north side. The most significant feature of the building is the mural in the lobby painted in 1937 by Claremont artist Milford Zornes It is one of the few surviving examples of the government sponsored art projects of the Depression. On all 4 walls of the lobby, Mr. Zornes offered a view of the Pomona Valley in the 1930s—from a central image of the newly constructed Bridges Auditorium at Pomona to the towering eucalyptus trees lining Foothill Boulevard. This mural fulfilled the federal government’s stated goal“by providing decoration in public buildings, the art

was made accessible to all people.” In the 1970s the building couldn’t accommodate all the postal services required and there was talk of moving the post office out of the Village to a new and more accessible location. Only the intervention of the Claremont City Council kept the building here with scaled-down services but ones most often used by the public. Leila Ackerman, who lobbied for a more effective design in 1935, would have been proud of the city’s response to the threat of losing one of our distinctive civic center buildings.

Investing in Claremont
Dear Editor: Thank you for the careful coverage you are giving to the current debate regarding the possible purchase of Golden State Water. I also appreciated the thoughtful analysis by Dr. Freeman Allen, who is an excellent authority on the topic. Hal Hargrave, Randy Scott and Claremont Against Outrageous Water Rates have done a great job providing information and keeping the discussion alive. I love living in a community where there is a forum and a passion for informed

READERS’ COMMENTS
conversation and decision. Today I received a flyer from an organization named California Alliance to Protect Private Property Rights with a return address located in Folsom, California. I am offended that this mysterious third party would presume to insert itself into our town hall discussion. I am curious as to where their funding has come from. We received more than one flyer at our address. Who paid for it? Next they will want a donation. I am fully supportive of the acquisition of Golden State by the city of Claremont; their pumps are installed down the street from my house, where they pump the water out from under our neighborhoods, process it and return it to us at a huge cost. It is certain that water will only be-

come a more precious resource in the future. It is prudent that the city should control this valuable asset. Eminent domain seems a reasonable solution in this situation. Yes, it will be expensive. Yes, initially our water rates may not decrease. However, the long-term investment in our own water company will repay us bountifully. I would rather invest in my city and its resources than continue to support a profit-grabbing and overbearing company such as Golden State Water.

Claremont’s eminent domain water plan is all wet
By John C. Eastman and Anthony T. Caso

J

ames Madison, the architect behind the Constitution, wrote that “A Government is instituted to protect property. This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own.”
Claremont city government’s proposal to seize the local water provider, Golden State Water Company, and replace it with a new government department raises significant question about whether the city is a “just government.” City officials have spent hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars just in the initial phase of the seizure plan, and have already offered $54 million without a vote of the people. The company argues that the city’s offer is significantly below fair value—something that should give residents of Claremont serious pause should the city ever choose to come after their property. Few would deny that eminent domain

is an important and necessary tool for government. But the purpose of the power is to allow the construction of roads and public buildings—not to take businesses away from private owners. California is no stranger to abuse of eminent domain power. Cities have tried to condemn church property and private homes in order to construct big box retail stores. One city even tried to use the power to take over a professional football team! Clearly, possession of a great power does not impart the wisdom on how to wield the power. The city should clearly explain the necessity for the takeover. Since protection of property is the first duty of a just government, citizens are entitled to know why their government will use this power to take a business away from its owners. Is there a service deficiency that requires attention? The city has not argued Golden State Water Company has provided substandard service. If the business is providing services in a satisfactory manner, what is the rationale for the exercise of the power of eminent domain? The city might argue that they could

VIEWPOINT
provide water (assuming that they can confiscate Golden State’s infrastructure and water rights) to city residents cheaper. If that is the rationale, then the city should explain how they will accomplish that feat. Will they use fewer employees? Will they pay those employees less? One study suggests that water rates will necessarily increase just to cover the cost of the purchase. If moving employees from private to civil service with greater benefits and pensions will cost more, that is a cost that will passed along to the rate payers as well. Citizens are rightly suspicious of the government’s exercise of powers like eminent domain. With this power, the city can deposit what it argues is fair

value and immediately take over a business—leaving the owners with the option to take the city offer or engage in years of litigation seeking a fair payment. Because this power has such a severe impact on individual citizens, we should demand that the government carefully and fully explain the reasons. Without increased citizen vigilance, we risk a government that no longer sees itself as a guardian of individual rights such as property. That is the path to an unjust government. John C. Eastman is the founding director of The Claremont Institute Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence and Anthony T. “Tom” Caso has led it since 2008. The center has participated in more than 50 cases before the Supreme Court of the United States including Kelo v. New London, Connecticut (the property takings case).

Richard H. Mabie, MD
Pediatrician, father, lover of the outdoors
Dr. Richard H. Mabie, a pediatrician and longtime Claremont resident, died Saturday, January 26, 2013 following a long battle with cancer. He was 82. He was born December 21, 1930 in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin to Henry “Harry” Mabie Jr. and Ellen Smollen Mabie. Along with their home in Fond du Lac, Dr. Mabie’s family had a cottage on Lake Winnebago and each summer while he was growing up, his family would pack up their belongings and move to the lake. It was a ritual that likely spurred his lifelong passion for nature. His father died of pancreatic cancer when he was only 13, but that did not stop Dr. Mabie from striving for success. He attended St. Joseph’s for elementary and junior high and then went on to St. Mary’s Springs Academy. After graduating from high school in 1948, he studied premed at Marquette University in Milwaukee. He graduated from Marquette University School of Medicine in 1955. It was at Marquette that he met his beloved wife Kathleen. They were paired in biology lab by alphabet, her maiden name being McGowan. With his degree in medicine, hers in botany, and a powerful faith in God, they married.  Dr. Mabie enlisted in the United States Navy and interned at the US Naval Hospital in Great Lakes, Illinois from 1955 to 1956. The Mabies were then stationed together at the US Naval Hospital in Sasebo, Japan. Dr. Mabie was chief of the outpatient department there, serving honorably and being promoted to the rank of Lieutenant. Upon returning to the United States in 1958, they moved to California, where Dr. Mabie worked as a physician at Daniel Freeman Hospital in Inglewood and then undertook his pediatric residency at Children’s Hospital, Los Angeles. In 1961, Dr. Mabie joined the pediatric practice of the well-respected Pomona physician Dr. John Wilcox, where he had the honor of working with some of the finest pediatricians in the region, his family recalled. He cared for generations of children before his retirement in 2000. Dr. Mabie’s children noted that everywhere they go, they run into former patients and their families. Once, his son Bill Mabie, who at the time was a Peace Corps recruiter, was in the career center at UC San Diego when he experienced yet another instance of the “I-knew-your-dad” phenomenon. “Someone mentioned my name out loud, and a woman heard and asked, ‘Are you related to Dr. Mabie?’” he recalled. “She went on to tell a wonderful story about when her daughter was sick and she had no money. My dad took care of them and said, ‘You can pay me $5 a month—don’t worry about it.’” As unusual as the story may sound, his son said it exemplified Dr. Mabie’s lifelong ethos. “He was a very generous man—very much of an old-school physician,” Bill said. “He was in medicine for the right reasons. He did it because he really wanted to help people.” which spanned 10 years beginning in the late 1980s. Though his service in pediatrics was extraordinary, it alone did not define him. With a quick wit, a warm smile and a competitive spirit, Dr. Mabie excelled at basketball, tennis, racquetball and golf. He was also an avid reader, particularly of fiction, and played a great game of chess, billiards and card games like cribbage. An avid hiker and naturalist, he led his family on camping and backpacking trips deep into the Sierra Nevada and throughout the west, returning home to develop and enlarge his own photographs. More than 40 years ago, the Mabies purchased a cabin in upper Mt. Baldy, just below Snowcrest Lodge and across from the Zen Center, a retreat that provided the busy physician with many cherished moments of Zen. Occasionally, Dr. Mabie and his wife would head to their cabin for a quiet getaway. Generally, though, Mt. Baldy was a family affair, with the children playing in their “second backyard” and the doctor bringing his movie or still camera, serving as the family’s historian. Dr. Mabie’s children have fond memories of Baldy, where their father taught them to ski and they built giant snowmen and went tobogganing down a sledding run between the Zen Center and the Harwood Lodge. When visitors to Baldy were stuck there due to icy conditions, Dr. and Mrs. Mabie had an open-door policy. “We’d have 20 or 30 stranded people in our cabin and my mom and dad would be feeding them,” their son, Bill, recalled. “They were like that.” The family had a ritual during each car trip. All 9 Mabie children, along with their parents, would pile into their big blue Ford van and then each of the kids would do a countdown, beginning with the youngest: 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Then, the whole family would yell “Blast off!” and Dr. Mabie would start the van and back out of the driveway. Dr. Mabie didn’t mind a bit of noise in the name of fun. He and his wife both loved to sing, and his children can hardly remember a time they visited him and music wasn’t playing. The holiday season was a particularly festive time in the Mabie household. “Our family used to attend the 7 a.m. mass on Christmas morning and we would fill a whole pew-and-a-half,” his son Bill related. “My father would wake us up at the crack of dawn by cranking up the stereo full-blast and playing Christmas carols.” Dr. Mabie’s children remember him as “an amazing father” who, together with his wife, emphasized education. Each child attended Our Lady of the Assumption School and later moved on to their choice of Claremont High School or the local Catholic high schools Damien or St. Lucy’s. All 9 adult children went on to earn college degrees. “His will was strong, his commitment deep and his example profound,” family shared. “He led a life of purpose and

OBITUARIES
meaning as a pediatrician and as a father, a husband and a friend.” Between his demanding profession and his large family, it wasn’t always easy for Dr. Mabie’s kids to get one-on-one time with their father. “During dinner, the phone would always ring. Dad always took the calls out of duty,” his son Bill recalled. “It was always the medical exchange, a switchboard operator who would connect a patient to a doctor for a consultation. When he would graphically ask about symptoms, we all knew to not listen because it could affect our appetite.” Nonetheless, Dr. Mabie found ways to provide each of his children with quality time, according to family. His son Bill has a particularly bright memory of a backpacking trip to the Sierra Nevada, when the family had set up camp by a river. Convinced that there was a perfect pool of water full of trout, just up river, Dr. Mabie set out, inviting anyone who wanted to go along to accompany him. Bill grabbed his pole and followed him and was stunned when, 50 yards later, he turned back and realized no one else had followed. “For the first time in my life, I was going to do something alone with Pops,” he remembered. “It was just like the opening to the Andy Griffith show, he and I with our fishing poles walking up a trail. “I was so excited and proud, and it was just like he said it would be,” he continued. “There was a big waterfall and there was a beautiful calm pool of water, and it really was full of fish. We caught enough to feed the family.” Bill has always cherished the memory of his father leading him up a trail and showing him the way. “I guess he really did that for all of us, his entire life,” he said. Dr. Mabie is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Kathleen Marie Mabie; by his children and their spouses, Thomas (Rhonda Heth), Laura (Keith Serxner), Ken (Patti), Ann (Frank DeRuyter), Mary (Bill Platt), Peter (Gwen O’Grady), William (Denise Mendoza) and Michael (Nora); by 16 grandchildren, Margaret, Claire (Richard Walker), Joseph, Jason (Kasey), Melissa (fiancé Randy Cochran), Lauren, Julia, Thomas, Michael (Alexis), Kathleen (Cesar Sandoval), Grace, Emily, John, Roy, Sarah and Daniel; by 4 stepgrandchildren, Joshua Platt (Christina), Tucker Platt (Sara), Ryan Mendoza (Valerie) and Celeste Hernandez; by 2 greatgrandchildren Olivia and Thomas; and by 2 step-great-grandchildren Brody and Logan Platt. Dr. Mabie was preceded in death by his beloved daughter Jane (Lori Kizzia) and son James. Funeral services will be held Saturday, February 2 at 10 a.m. at Our Lady of Assumption Church, located at 435 N. Berkeley Ave. in Claremont.   In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Children’s Advocacy Center, 363 S. Park Ave., Suite 202, Pomona, CA 91766, or to the Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center Foundation, 1798 N. Garey Ave., Pomona, CA 91767.

Over the years, Dr. Mabie also had active staff appointments at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center and LA County USC Medical Center. Additionally, he had a teaching appointment as a clinical professor of pediatrics at USC and was an attending physician at LA County USC Medical Center. Lisa Schlick, a Claremont resident and Mountain View Elementary School art teacher, said Dr. Mabie’s death leaves her with a real sense of loss. He was the pediatrician for her 2 daughters, who are now grown. As a young mother worried about her children’s health, she inevitably found Dr. Mabie to be reassuring. “He would come in and smile and his eyes would light up,” she said. “There was something about his face that made you feel like, ‘Okay, everything’s going to be fine.” On one occasion, one of Ms. Schlick’s daughters required stitches. After he had strapped her into the papoose used for procedures on small children and got to work, the little girl became panic-stricken and started screaming. “He looked right at her and said, ‘That’s okay, honey. You can go ahead and scream.I know it hurts,’” Ms. Schlick remembered. “Once he was finished and she calmed down, he said, ‘Okay, Whitney. Now your mom’s going to take you and get you a treat.’ He was just a good, nice man.” Settling in Claremont, Dr. Mabie was a devout parishioner of Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church and actively served on the boards of Claremont Rotary, the local chapter of the Red Cross, the Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center Foundation and the Children’s Advocacy Center. He received both communion and the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice medal from Pope John Paul II during the Papal visit to Los Angeles in 1987. With the help of his wife and members of their parish, he also donated a good portion of his weekends to providing free pediatric care to immigrant families in the Pico-Union neighborhood of Los Angeles. He was later recognized by President Clinton for his time as medical director of the Clinica de Divina Providencia,

Claremont picks up the pace as playoffs near

C

laremont sports again swept the opposition in soccer and basketball on Wednesday. The Wolfpack are pushing for the playoffs from all angles, as this week’s conquered foes were Damien and St. Lucy’s. Check out our website and newspaper for results from Claremont games against the Chino Hills Huskies.
BOYS SOCCER The Wolfpack made it 2 wins in a row on Wednesday night, scoring 3 first half goals to beat the Damien Spartans 3-1. This victory avenges Claremont’s loss from earlier in the month. Goals from Cassady O’Reilly-Hahn, Steven Mancia, and a Damien own goal were enough to put Claremont in a tie for Sierra League’s top spot. Only 3 matches remain for the team to cement its playoff spot. Webb dropped this week’s game against Pasadena Poly, 3-1, dropping them to 4th place in the hotly contested Prep League. With the top 4 teams within 3 points of one another, the Gauls could catapult themselves up the ladder with a win against Rio Hondo.

GIRLS SOCCER Claremont scored goals on either side of halftime to down the St. Lucy’s Regents 2-0. Karen Parga and Hannah Chua secured the points for the Wolfpack, who retain their second place position in the Sierra League. Claremont’s game against undefeated Chino Hills will be the measuring stick for whether the team can rise to the opposition. Vivian Webb lost on Tuesday to Pasadena Poly by 2 goals to none. The loss leaves the Gauls all but out of CIF playoff contention, with the team needing to have won the remainder of their games. BOYS BASKETBALL Claremont opened up a 9-point lead by halftime and held on to beat Damien 55-50. The Wolfpack limited themselves to 7 turnovers, and Max Allen, Omar Mahmoud, and Brandon Brown were in double figures in scoring. Claremont now sits in a 2-way tie for second place, with a game against unbeaten Chino Hills on the radar. Webb fell victim to a huge 2nd quarter outbreak by Flintridge, falling 76-56. The loss leaves the Gauls with a 2-4 record and a 4th place position in the Prep League. Webb needs wins against both Rio Hondo and Chadwick next

week to stay in contention for the playoffs. GIRLS BASKETBALL The Wolfpack outrebounded and stayed tough on defense against St. Lucy’s. Jessica Abrolat’s 11 points and Danna Robles’ 7 points and 13 boards gave Claremont the 38-30 win. Claremont still has some ground to make up, sitting in fourth place with a 3-4 record.

However, with 3 games left the Wolfpack can win out and book their playoff spot. Vivian Webb avenged a loss to Flintridge Prep earlier this month by beating the Rebels 28-21 on Tuesday. The Gauls are mathematically still in playoff consideration with a 2-6 record, and will face 4 league foes in the coming

arly in 1946, Claremont resident Tharen Hodges, just back from the war, received a letter from Lawrence “Buck” Shaw, coach of the San Francisco 49ers. Actually, the 49ers were not really a team yet, but were in the process of recruiting their original players.
Hodges had been attending USC on a full football scholarship at the outbreak of World War II. He was known as a tough and aggressive lineman, described by one writer as “a one-man wrecking crew.” Buck Shaw had seen him play and had not forgotten. Shaw had been so impressed, in fact, that he contacted Hodges, inviting him to sign on as one of the team’s original 32 players. Hodges could not pass up the opportunity to pursue the sport he loved. Upon receiving Shaw’s letter of confirmation, he headed north to Stanford University, where the new team was beginning practice.

Hodges spent only a single memorable year with the 49ers. Despite being invited back for a second season, he had to face some grim realities. Professional football, at that time, was only a part-time job and did not pay well. Hodges had a wife and 2 infant children to support. Where would he find part-time work to sustain him during the off season? For these and other considerations, Hodges reluctantly bid farewell to the new team and pro football. When Hodges left the 49ers, Coach Buck Shaw presented him with a football signed by all of the other original players and coaches. Hodges returned to Claremont and joined his father, Winfred Hodges, in business as a baker and co-owner of Hodges Claremont Bakery on Yale Avenue. The father-and-son team operated the bakery until 1968. The site is now occupied by another fine bakery, Some Crust.

nternational soccer “friendlies” are a good way for the United States Men’s National Team to test out youngsters on the grand stage. On Tuesday, Claremont High School graduate Tony Beltran made his senior team debut against the Canadian national team.
Beltran played right back for the first half of a scoreless draw in front of 11,000 people in Houston, Texas. Beltran currently plays club soccer with MLS team Real Salt Lake in Utah, where he has appeared 110 times after being a third-round draft pick in 2008. Prior to professional soccer, Beltran made his name playing for the UCLA Bruins. At Claremont High School, Beltran played under Coach Fred Bruce-Oliver, winning league MVP 3 times. Beltran will look to continue to impress at the international level, and we hope to see him play at a big tournament such as the 2014 World Cup.

Fred Claire helped bring Dodger Blue to greatness

T

he overall message was that we should “view life through the front window and not the rearview” when Fred Claire spoke to a packed house at Claremont Place on Wednesday. Mr. Claire was the Dodger’s general manager from 1988 to 1998, and is the author of My 30 Years in Dodger Blue.
Mr. Claire exemplifies the idea that people can always reinvent themselves. As audience members munched on mini hot dogs, popcorn and Cracker Jacks, Mr. Claire recounted his long career in the sports world. Born in small-town Ohio, his family moved to Torrance, California where Mr. Claire attended El Camino College before moving on to San Jose State. During his years at San Jose State, the budding journalist submitted a baseball article for a journalism class to Baseball Magazine. Instead of receiving the much-expected rejection letter, he received a check in the mail. Mr. Claire began reporting on the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1969, and quickly became their VP of Public Relations. He invented the “Think Blue” and “Dodger Days” marketing campaigns. Dodger president Peter O’Malley hired him as general manager in 1987, an extraordinary feat considering Mr. Claire started as a reporter. Mr. Claire took over the team at the right time. Shrewd player acquisitions resulted in the Dodgers beating the Oakland Athletics to win the 1988

World Series, just one year after Mr. Claire took over. After 10 years under Mr. Claire, the Dodgers were sold to the Fox Network. Controversy duly ensued, as the team traded fan favorites Mike Piazza and Todd Zeile to the Florida Marlins for 4 players. The risky move was made without his consultation, a trade that

went entirely against Dodger culture. Mr. Claire refused to take public responsibility for the transaction, and stated his outrage to the press. The Dodgers let Mr. Claire go, and Tommy Lasorda took his place. Mr. Claire holds no resentment on how he left, remembering his time with the team fondly.

It should be noted, however, that when Claremont resident Larry Goodman asked Mr. Claire, “Who in your opinion is the greatest Dodger ever?” without missing a beat, Mr. Claire quipped, “Vin Scully.”
During his time under President O’Malley, Mr. Claire introduced the

flywheel and hedgehog concepts to his players. Flywheel players make the rest of the team turn and change, and hedgehog players grind out results through determination. In his post-Dodger years, Mr. Claire vowed to keep looking ahead. He has written a book about his Dodger career, and wants to write another giving information to young people about how to break into the sports industry. After applying for a teaching position at USC, and when asked how much he wanted to be paid to teach, he was quite candid. “How about you give me an offer, and whatever it is I will accept it.” Mr. Claire currently lives in Pasadena, where he serves on the executive boards for the Rose Bowl and the

Special Olympics. He has since become involved with the science of baseball analytics, recently portrayed in the Brad Pitt film, Moneyball. He has also partnered with the company Ariball, providing high-tech baseball scouting services with Caltech’s “man of the decade,” Ari Kaplan. Mr. Claire’s final anecdote of the morning was about his donation of the Dodgers’ “final out” ball to the Hall of Fame. Apparently, only one of these had been donated before; most people lucky enough to catch one hold on to it and pay for their children’s college with it. The 1988 World Series ball was appraised at $50,000, but Mr. Claire felt it

belonged in Cooperstown. He still misses being a part of it all, noting the competition he experienced cannot be replicated. But Mr. Claire is always looking ahead, ready to reinvent himself at a moment’s notice.

Local volunteers embark on mission to help homeless

I

n the county with the nation’s highest homeless population, some may say it’s difficult to figure out how to help. But Claremont residents are counting the ways.
Forty-eight volunteers, Councilmembers Joe Lyons and Sam Pedroza included, gathered at the Joslyn Center Tuesday night to embark on the 2013 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Street Count, sponsored by the Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority (LAHSA). Claremont volunteers joined with an estimated 5000 others from across the county in the biennial 3-day tally, necessary to calculate the amount of funding to be provided for the next 2 years. For the past 2 decades, LAHSA has provided more than $70 million each year for programs providing shelter, housing and services to homeless peoplle in Los Angeles County. The count helps aid those efforts. Understanding the number of homeless people in our community helps us address it, volunteers insist. “We do it because everyone counts,” said Management Analyst Lauren Marshall, who helped orchestrate Claremont’s involvement in the tally, to the crowd of volunteers before the count began. “It is our responsibility to take note of and take care of the most vulnerable of our fellow citizens. The count is a great opportunity for us to really open our eyes and see homeless people in our community in a new light.” From Tuesday, January 29 through Thursday, January 31, LAHSA deployed volunteers throughout the Greater Los Angeles area—minus Glendale, Long Beach and Pasadena, which will be conducting their own counts since their cities are so vast. Last year, an estimated 48,000 homeless individuals were counted. “The count really helps us know where the need is greatest and the best ways to help these people,” Ms. Marshall said. “It helps us use all of this money in the smartest way possible, and we have to know what we are facing in order to take it on.” While the count is required by the housing and urban development authority in order for an entity to receive funding, and is certainly beneficial in helping Claremont and other cities receive the necessary support, Andrew Mohr of Occupy Claremont is concerned over the count’s accuracy. Mr. Mohr, who works with the Claremont Area Living Assistance Program (CALAP), says Claremont’s grand total—28 homeless individuals, 4 vehicles that appeared to be for homeless and 8 makeshift shelters—is lower than what the actual count is.  He believes it is unintentionally deceptive. “Something is better than nothing, but other than that I find [the numbers] misleading and unfortunately, if all the other cities have a similar experience, which I assume they are, we are going to be misleading our culture,” Mr. Mohr said. He was hesitant to take part in the count when first approached by the city for other reasons. “At first I was hesitant because I didn’t want to give away any of the places where people might be sleeping, even hanging out,” Mr. Mohr said, adding his concern that the count might be used for the wrong purposes, like tracking where the homeless are staying so that enforcement can pick them up later on. “That was my biggest concern, but then I thought about the fact that hopefully the city will be getting money from the county for this and hopefully we can use this money to help our citizens without a place to live. Maybe some of that money can make it down to programs like ours, like CALAP, and can directly affect the issue.” With the help of Occupy Claremont, the city of Claremont set out to make that happen. Volunteers were deployed to the streets of Claremont in teams of 2 to 4 equipped with flashlights, clipboards and maps

in addition to their coats and gloves, protecting them from the chilly night air. Each team was given a specific area to check, from Baseline to the downtown Village area to the Indian Hill Corridor and beyond. Each team had a leader, responsible for driving the designated route, along with a navigator, the leader’s second-in-command responsible for negotiating the route and tallying the team’s results. Councilmember Sam Pedroza, a second-time participant in Claremont’s homeless count, led the first team deployed, accompanied by navigator Sue Martin along with

Bertha Godinez and David Chavez. “We all get so caught up in our life routines and don’t realize, or really want to know, that there are people and families without shelter,” Mr. Pedroza shared. “To go out and actively seek out where people are camping out for the night, either in a car or makeshift encampment, we start to realize the extent of the homelessness problem.   “It’s like any major task,” Mr. Pedroza continued.

“We need to first assess the scope or magnitude of the situation and then develop appropriate programs. I appreciate all those that took time and sleeping hours of their own to go out and help in this effort.” Ms. Godinez, a custodial worker with Pitzer College, was the veteran of Mr. Pedroza’s group, a participant in Claremont’s street count for the past 3 counts. Ms. Godinez finds herself returning to the count time after time, called by her instincts as a passionate volunteer and mother. She recalls seeing a homeless mother and her 2 children while volunteering on her first count.   “One of the kids was crying, saying, ‘Mom, I’m hungry.’ It was eye-opening,” Ms. Godinez remembered. “I want to help in any little way that I can, to make sure they get the help they need, especially in this weather.”

Among the street counts’ benefits, including the possibility for funding, is the added awareness it brings to the community. “We need to think of homelessness not so much as a theoretical issue but as people who, when we are sleeping comfortably in our beds, are sleeping in 32-degree weather,” Mr. Mohr said. “Or not really sleeping because it is impossible to sleep in 32-degree weather, just going in and out of a haze.” The first step to solving the problem, he asserts, is realizing that it exists. “We can get together and get involved collectively, and it needs to be a collective effort,” Mr. Mohr emphasized, “And people need to walk away from the whole idea of ‘not in my backyard.’ That, to me, is the eleventh commandment.” To find out more about LAHSA and the biennial homeless street count, visit www.theycountwillyou.org.

Pilgrim Place continues leadership in long-term nursing care
The Health Services Center at Pilgrim Place is hosting a one-day workshop for long-term care administrators on Friday, February 8. This is the latest step in Pilgrim Place’s journey towards culture change in their skilled nursing facility. More than 50 professionals from throughout California have already signed up to attend. Culture change refers to an evolution in long-term nursing care to a more resident-directed model. Pilgrim

Place is one of a handful of skilled nursing facilities in California that is moving in this direction. The workshop will benefit anyone involved in long-term care of elders, at both the administrative and staff levels, as well as professionals in related fields, including social workers and elder care attorneys. Elders at the skilled nursing facility at Pilgrim Place are divided into 3 neighborhoods—memory support, short-term rehab and long-term care—so that staff in each neighborhood can better specialize in the needs of those residents. Rooms are equipped with large-screen televisions, steam-heated serving tables, pianos and more. Residents choose from activities that include gardening, games and music, amongother activities. Spiritual care is provided by a team of trained chaplains from the wider Pilgrim Place community. The day-long workshop has been approved for 6 hours of continuing education units for long-term care administrators. It is one of 3 such workshops being planned at Pilgrim Place this year. For more information, contact Andrea Smith at Pilgrim Place at 399-5536, or call Action Pact at (414) 258-5536.

You will be bidding on a lien, not the property itself. Placing the highest bid at trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 573-1965 or visit this Internet Web site www. Priorityposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 22956CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. In addition, the borrower on the loan shall be sent a written notice if the sale has been postponed for at least ten (10) business days. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The property heretofore described is being sold “as is”.

P1017936 2/2, 2/9, 02/16/2013 NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING AND AVAILABILITY OF INITIAL STUDY AND DRAFT MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, pursuant to the Municipal Code of the City of Claremont and the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”), that the City Council will be holding a meeting regarding a proposal for a new residential development on a 4.21-acre site. The site is located at the southeast corner of the Base Line Road/Mountain Avenue intersection, immediately north of and adjacent to the Interstate 210 Freeway. The site is currently owned by the Claremont Unified School District (“CUSD”), and previously

18

housed the main administrative offices for CUSD until its administrative operations were relocated to their current location on San Jose Avenue. The new residential project requires demolition of existing ornamental trees, buildings/structures, parking areas and other site improvements. Please note that the adjacent CUSD maintenance/service yard is not a part of the project site. The new residential project is proposed by a private developer (D.R. Horton – Los Angeles Holding Co., Inc.), and consists of 54 individually detached residential condominium homes. All of the proposed homes will be sold at market rate, with the exception of eight units. These eight units will be reserved as moderate-income housing pursuant to the City’s Inclusionary Housing Ordinance. The General Plan designates the project site as Office/Professional and the zoning designation for the project is Commercial Professional. Residential development on the project site is permitted under the Commercial Professional zoning designation with the approval of a Conditional Use Permit. The proposed project also requires the approval of a tract map, which would subdivide the project site for condominium purposes. The City Council will conduct a public hearing to consider the subject applications and environmental documentation on Tuesday, February 12, 2013, at 7:00 p.m., in the City Council Chamber, located at 225 W. Second Street. At this time all interested persons are invited to appear and be heard. The Planning Commission was an advisory body on this matter and recommended approval to the City Council. Following the City Council decision, a notice will also be given for a hearing before the Architectural Commission regarding the project’s proposed visual and design characteristics (i.e. architectural designs, exterior colors, materials, exterior lighting, landscaping). Notice is further given that with assistance from The Planning Center, City staff completed an Initial Study on the project in accordance with the City’s guidelines for implementing CEQA. Staff has concluded that the project (Files: Tentative Tract Map #72078, Conditional Use Permit #12-C12, Architectural Review #12-A04, and Certificate of Compliance #12-CC01) will not have a significant effect on the environment with inclusion of mitigation measures and has prepared a Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration (“MND”). The public review period for the Initial Study and Draft MND commenced on November  6, 2012, and concluded on December 5, 2012. Following the public review period, City staff has made revisions to some of the draft mitigations measures in regards to Air Quality and Noise to further address development of the proposed project. These changes are also up for consideration but will not change the conclusion that the project will not have a significant effect on the environment. Specifically, Staff has determined that the changed/substituted mitigation measures are equivalent or more effective in mitigating environmental impacts as compared to the original measures, and that the changed/substituted mitigation measures will not cause potentially significant environmental impacts themselves. Failure to file objections to the environmental determination may constitute a waiver of rights to object to the environmental determination at a later date. Copies of the Initial Study, Draft MND, and applications are available during the public review period in the Planning Division located at Claremont City Hall, 207 Harvard Avenue. City Hall is open Monday through Thursday, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. A copy of the Initial Study and Draft MND are also available at the Claremont Public Library, located at 208 Harvard Avenue and the City’s website (www.ci.claremont.ca.us). For more information, please contact Senior Planner Mark Carnahan, at (909) 399-5322, or send written comments to P.O. Box 880, Claremont, CA 91711. In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, any person with a disability who requires a modification or accommodation in order to participate in a City meeting should contact the City Clerk at 909/399-5461 “VOICE” or 1800/735-2929 “TT/TTY” at least three working days prior to the meeting, if possible.

KP 015100 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of CHARLES O. ODOM A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by CHARLES W. ODOM in the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles. THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that CHARLES W. ODOM be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: February 21, 2013, at Time: 8:30 A.M. in Dept. A located at: Superior Court Of California, County of Los Angeles, 400 Civic Center Plaza Pomona, CA 91766 Pomona South

Mason handled 2 transactions for us this year and we were very pleased to have worked with him. His knowledge of the area was great, which was important to us, and he was always available to answer our questions. A big plus these days—he answered phone calls promptly and was available by email as well. Both transactions went extremely well and we would recommended him to anyone interested in buying or selling a home in this area.
