’ve written many a column on the financial plight of the newspaper industry over the past 2 years. The overall situation has improved somewhat because most media companies have simply cut expenses drastically. This cost cutting has offset the drop in advertising revenue due to the recession and the Internet.
The challenge now for newsrooms is to figure out how to produce a compelling product that people will want to read. All with less staff. I could outline the various ways newspapers are doing this, but the most important stories not seeing print are the investigative “watchdog” stories that take time and resources to produce. There’s simply no instant outcome an editor can post to a website quickly. Watchdog stories are not only interesting to read, they serve as a monitor for institutions taking advantage of the role they play serving the public. This was the case when the Los Angeles Times broke the story last week highlighting the salaries of various elected officials from the city of Bell. Bell is a city just a little larger than Claremont, but not nearly as well off. Yet they had the nation’s highest-paid elected government official in the nation. City manager Robert Rizzo earned nearly $800,000 annual pay, followed by the police chief at $450,000 and the assistant city manager at $376,000. Even some council members earned $100,000 annually for their part-time jobs. It was clearly an abuse of power when the city council found a loophole to allow these huge salaries. Most of these people have since resigned, leaving the town scrambling for leadership. Attorney General Jerry Brown has issued a subpoena seeking hundreds of documents and emails to determine whether these officials broke any laws. The Times has 3 reporters contributing to this “special re-

port” that continues to evolve as news is reported. This case of watchdog journalism is a prime example of the role a newspaper can and should play for the public good. Yet this type of journalism has become more rare in an era of instant free news where many of the sources go unchecked. Or where news sources simply copy and paste information from other sources found on the Internet. Community newspapers play a watchdog role, too. Because of the strong connection to the community, they have a unique ability to monitor or publicize issues important to the city. But this also takes resources. Resources made possible by selling subscriptions to the newspaper. I like to think the COURIER does this on a regular basis. It may not be as dramatic as discovering an $800,000 per year elected official, but in small ways by keeping readers in the know. Lately we published opposing views on the issue of free speech at the Fourth of July parade. There have been numerous letters, along with a news story outlining the situation. Even Martin Weinberger got involved with a column first published in 1980. The city, school board and teachers have endured difficult times because of budget shortfalls. The community needs to know who is involved, how they voted and the impact these decisions have on all of us. The COURIER will be there…watching and reporting. When citizens stay informed, the city of Claremont is better off.

Council does heavy lifting on a variety of issues
PERS system debated

T

he city council narrowly approved salary and benefit terms for the Claremont Police Management Association for the current fiscal year. But council members Peter Yao and Corey Calaycay were not supportive of the terms of deal, pushing for more concessions from the employee union.

city council
Business signage law changed Claremont businesses will have more freedom to promote themselves after the council passed a new signage ordinance. The law will allow for multi-tenant signs at shopping centers and relax regulations for freestanding freeway-oriented signs. City planner Belle Newman presented a slideshow at the council meeting showing the lack of visibility of many businesses at shopping centers around Claremont. As part of the presentation, she showed multi-tenant signs at shopping centers in La Verne that might be appropriate for the city. Ms. Newman said the city would need to approve the signs on a case-by-case basis and hopes to see signs that are compatible and appropriate with each center. “We’d like to encourage more kinds of creative designs,” Ms. Newman said. The changes were supported by members of the Chamber of Commerce in attendance at the meeting and were unanimously approved by the council. “I know change is so metimes scary in our community but I’m hoping and am going to be very optimistic that this will be a good one,” Mr. Calaycay said. Three French Hens lease with the city Boutique gift shop Three French Hens will take over the vacant space in the Village parking structure retail space. Owned and leased by the city, the 1200 square feet space is located between Bua Thai Cuisine and 21 Choices Frozen Yogurt. In a unique arrangement with the city, business owner Brenda Monahan agreed to serve as a business “concierge” during evenings and weekends when the Chamber of Commerce is closed. In that role, Ms. Monahan will act as an information and service referral resource for the city, providing visitors to Claremont information about local businesses and restaurants.

The rent will be $1800 per month, including a monthly $300 discount for her role as city concierge. The 3-year lease agreement begins September 1 and has a 2-year extension option. Three French Hens has operated in the Village for over 10 years. The boutique carries a wide variety of retail products, including Sid Dickens tiles, designer belts, clothing, handbags and other gift items. Council members voted unanimously in support of the agreement. Packing House businesses receive grants Two Packing House businesses will receive grants of $50,000 to make improvements to their businesses. Hip Kitty Jazz & Fondue Lounge hopes to expand their dining area to create additional seating for patrons. Business owner Nancy Tessier hopes the expansion will boost sales by 40 percent. The city believes the move will create 2 new full-time jobs and boost the city's sales tax revenue. The Packing House Wine Merchants also want to expand into the former Claremont Forum bookstore space. The expansion will allow room for the business to have occasional wine tasting events, private parties and additional retail display space. The council voted unanimously in favor of the 2 grant applications. Property Liens The council approved a resolution allowing the city’s Community Improvement Coordinator to place liens on properties that are in violation of the city's abandoned properties ordinance. By approving the resolution, the city hopes to recover $83,624 in fines and costs levied against lender/owners of the abandoned properties. Property owners are required to register their properties with the city when they begin to enter foreclosure. They must also maintain the properties to certain city standards and are subject to fines if the homes fall into disrepair.
— Tony Krickl

Negotiations between the city and employee union have been ongoing since March. The Memorandum of Understanding takes away an annual 1.9 percent cost of living salary increase for the employees. But the city will continue paying the employees’ 9 percent annual PERS contributions, a cost Mr. Yao believes employees should shoulder to cut down on the city’s burden. The deal also implements a Two Tier PERS retirement plan. This means safety officers hired after the current fiscal year can expect lower retirement benefits than current employees. The city currently offers 3 percent at age 50 to its police officers. Mr. Yao has long maintained that the city’s PERS plan is too generous and not financially sustainable. He estimated the city would need $40 million to pay off all the pensions, money the city does not have. “I cannot support this,” Mr. Yao said. “Keeping Claremont solvent is one of most important roles I have as a city council member.” Mr. Calaycay agreed with Mr. Yao, saying the city needs to start tackling the problem today rather than “kicking the can forward.” “ “When you make a pension promise, employees expect that promise to be kept forever,” Mr. Calaycay said. “And the problem is that these promises we are finding we can not keep. They're not sustainable. And it’s not fair to make a promise that you can not keep.” The exact terms of the Two Tier PERS system will be negotiated next year.

police blotter
Tuesday, July 20 A man was arrested for threatening the life of a tenant who was renting a room in his home. At 8:47 a.m., the tenant arrived at the home in the 1800 block of Denver Avenue and knocked on the front door. The homeowner, who also lives at the location, opened the door with a firearm drawn and pointed the gun at the tenant’s face. He alleged threatened the man’s life. The tenant retreated and called police who arrived at the scene moments later. The resident was asked to vacate the house. After obtaining a search warrant to look for the firearm, police entered the home. While searching for the weapon, officers stumbled upon 19 marijuana plants. They also found the gun. Upon further investigation, police determined the homeowner, 35-year-old Demont Moret, had a valid medical marijuana permit so he was allowed to keep the marijuana plants. However, he was arrested for illegal possession of a firearm and making criminal threats. Mr. Moret told police he heard pounding on his front door and thought it was a burglar. He said he only used the gun for protection. Mr. Moret is currently being held at the Claremont Police Department jail pending a criminal filing. Wednesday, July 21 Police were called twice to a home in the 1100 Briarcroft Road regarding a prowler spotted in the backyard. The first incident occurred at 10:44 p.m. on Wednesday. A 50-year-old female resident was in her bathroom when she saw a man in her yard. She told police he appeared to be masturbating. When police arrived, they searched the yard and the neighboring area but were unable to locate the suspect. The resident called police a second time on Friday at 12:15 a.m. to report she had seen the man again. Police responded but did not find the man. He is described as

Arrest may link man to a number of auto thefts
On Monday, July 26 a San Bernardino man was arrested in connection with a vehicle theft and auto burglary in Claremont. Between 4:30 p.m. and 5 p.m., a vehicle in the parking lot at the Claremont Golf Course was burglarized. The front passenger window was smashed and a cell phone and wallet were taken. The property was left in open view on the front passenger seat. Police also discovered an abandoned stolen vehicle from San Bernardino in the parking lot. On the same day, a Toyota pickup was stolen from the parking lot outside of Trader Joe’s at 425 Foothill Boulevard. The car went missing sometime between 3 p.m. and 10 p.m. The following morning, the stolen pickup was located at an apartment complex in San Bernardino. While police were inspecting the car, another vehicle just across the street drove away from the scene at a high rate of speed. Police pursued the fleeing vehicle and the motorist eventually pulled over. Police located the stolen cell phone from the Claremont Golf Course burglary and drugs in the driver’s possession. Juan Manual Flores, 32, of San Bernardino was arrested for evading police, possession of methampetamine and possession of stolen property. Investigators are also trying to link him to the stolen vehicle from the Trader Joe’s parking lot.

the motorists were driving northbound near 8th Street when the branches fell from the trees. A city-contracted tree trimming crew was trimming trees nearby. Only scratches and other minor damage were reported to the 2 vehicles. Nobody was injured. —Tony Krickl

Fire spreads quickly almost destroying home
COURIER photos/ Steven Felschundneff Los Angeles County firefighters work at cutting a hole in the roof of a house in the 3300 block of North Mills Avenue while battling a blaze on Tuesday.

A

fire ripped through a home in north Claremont on Tuesday afternoon, causing an estimated $250,000 in damage.
The fire began at 5 p.m. at a home in the 3300 block of Mills Avenue. LACFD Captain Mark Griffen said it took firefighters about 10 to 15 minutes to put out the blaze. The blaze ignited the exterior of the home and went on to burn the interior. The fire damaged the garage, kitchen, living room, an outdoor shed and a Dodge van parked outside. Heavy smoke also caused damage to the rest of the home. “It was an accidental fire,” LACFD Captain George Verkamp said. He declined to provide further details on what caused the fire. Ryan Felter, 18, was the only one at home at the time. He was in the shower when he heard someone pounding on the front door and the smoke detector going off. “The fire started on the south side of the house and I just saw smoke billowing out everywhere,” Mr. Felter said. “I stayed down low to avoid the smoke and ran out the back of the house.” Fresh out of the shower and wearing only a towel, Mr. Felter borrowed some clothes from a passerby once outside. “I wanted to try to put out the flames but there was so much smoke,” he said. Friend Corey Hargrave, 18, was driving by as the fire erupted. He first dialed 911 to report the fire and then tried to call his friend. “Some of us tried to grab a garden hose, but by the time we got started the Fire Department arrived,” Mr. Hargrave said. He estimated it took firefighters less than 3 minutes to arrive at the scene. Martin McLeod was also driving by on his way to the Wilderness Park when he saw billowing smoke. He helped spray water from a garden hose on the home and offered some clothing to Mr. Felter. “It’s amazing how fast a fire like that can spread,” Mr. McLeod observed. Cpt. Verkamp stressed the importance of having smoke detectors in the home that function properly. “The smoke detector may have saved the boy’s life,” Cpt. Verkamp said. “He heard it go off and ran out of there in time.”

Fire and police officials speak with 18-year-old Ryan Felter across the street from his residence in the 3300 block of North Mills Avenue on Tuesday. A fire broke out on the south side of the home while Mr. Felter was showering inside however he was able to escape without injury.

Los Angeles County firefighters battle a fire that has completely engulfed the garage of a home in the 3300 block of North Mills Avenue Tuesday afternoon in Claremont. Eighteen-year-old Ryan Felter was taking a shower at the residence when the fire broke out but he was unharmed. According to witness Claremont resident Martin McLeod, the fire started outside to the south of the home but quickly spread to the structure.

New Oakmont principal is a familiar face to CUSD

N

ew Oakmont Outdoor School principal Adriana Garrett has returned to the Claremont Unified School District.
After 3 years of serving in principal and assistant principal roles in the Chino Valley Unified School District, Ms. Garrett has come back to the place where she has spent 14 of her 17 years in education. “My kids went through Claremont schools and that’s why I came back,” she said. “My kids grew up here and this is the community I wanted to give back to.” During her first stint in CUSD, Ms. Garrett served as an elementary school teacher at Chaparral and Vista del Valle Elementary Schools. After 14 years in the classroom, she was ready to move into administration. Ms. Garrett was assistant principal at Chaparral Elementary School in Chino Hills before being promoted to principal of Anna Borba Elementary School. During a time when Chino Valley Unified School District experienced a financial crisis in 2009, her first principal position was met with multiple challenges. “They closed down 3 schools at that time and Anna Borba [Elementary School] was relocated to one of the vacant campuses,” Ms. Garrett recalled. “So I had to clear out one campus and get another campus prepared within a month’s time before school started.” Born in Colombia, Ms. Garrett came to the United States only speaking Spanish when she started school. She attended 6 different schools by the time she reached 6th grade. Yet the new Oakmont principal did not allow her circumstances to deter her from graduating from high school and earning her Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Stud-

ies from Cal Poly Pomona with an emphasis in Bilingual/Cross-Cultural Chicano Studies. She went on to earn her Masters degree in Education from Claremont Graduate University. Before going into education, Ms. Garrett had a career in finance with jobs at Pomona First Federal Bank and Prudential Savings. It was during her stint at Pomona First Federal Bank as a training director that she became interested in education. “I had thought of teaching as a 2nd career,” she said. “But when I was working in the training department, I found a love for teaching. At that point, I had 2 kids and I thought it would be great to put the 2 together.” Ms. Garrett was confirmed as CUSD’s newest principal at the July 22nd board meeting. Before being recommended by Superintendent Terry Nichols for the position, she participated in 3 interviews. The first 2 interviews were conducted before interpersonal (student, parent, teacher, aide, administrator) and technical (parents, teachers, administrators) panels before a final interview with Superintendent Nichols. “Having been a former employee of the Claremont Unified School district, Mrs. Garrett is uniquely qualified to understand our commitment to being a district where students, learning and passion connect,” the CUSD superintendent said. One of the things Ms. Garrett looks forward to at Oakmont is continuing to build upon the magnet pro-

gram. The program debuted last fall and provides an outdoor emphasis for Oakmont students through the assigning of a biome for each grade. The biome focus concludes with a culminating field trip during the spring. Other areas Ms. Garrett wants to continue enhancing are the school’s technology focus and further development of social skills among Oakmont students. “One of the things I was asked at one of the interviews was if I could get my fingernails dirty,” she said. “Well I like the outdoors and it is great to have these end-of-the-year field trips because it’s a really good bonding experience for the kids. Plus, this is a technology age we’re in. Students need those skills and they also need social skills.” Able to speak both English and Spanish, Ms. Garrett looks forward to using her bilingual skills at Oakmont. The Oakmont principal believes she can identify with students learning English as a second language because of her own experience. “The demographics at Oakmont excited me because I can relate to it,” Ms. Garrett said. “I understand kids in low income and underprivileged situations because I went through it. What it did was give me a passion for families. It’s not just about educating a child but educating the family as well.”

panded twice to accommodate increased participation and programs. The interior of the building has not been updated since opening. The money will be used to replace carpeting, flooring, a sink and furniture as well as re-painting the building. The Senior Finance Committee allocated an additional $15,000 needed to complete all the projects.

Preschool and Tiny Tots progam privatized
The city found a private partner to take over the city’s preschool and Tiny Tot program. Children’s Source LLC will run the operation after budget cuts forced the city to dramatically raise tuition rates last year. With the higher rates, enrollment dwindled as many families were forced out of the preschool and Tiny Tot program. The city sent out a request for proposals to identify a partner in the private sector to take the programs over. With the private partnership, tuition rates will drop to $650 a month from its current level of $813. Children’s Source LLC is operated by Claremont resident Adetayo Abon. Ms. Abon has 15 years of experience with the City of Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation, serving the last 10 years as Childcare Director. The city and Children’s Source LLC agreed to a 5year lease.

James Dean Clayton
loving family man, elementary school educator, faithful follower of Christ
James Dean Clayton of Claremont died on July 23, 2010 at the age of 86. “This beloved father, grandfather, husband, teacher, Pomona elementary school principal and member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was loved by all and will be greatly missed,” his family expressed. Mr. Clayton was born on August 13, 1923 in Provo, Utah to James Perry Clayton and Elvira Snyder Clayton. His mother died 6 months after his birth, and Mr. Clayton was raised by his grandparents, James Edwin Clayton and Leila Mecham Snyder. The grandparents had 7 daughters and no sons, and were delighted to have this little boy join their family. Mr. Clayton and his numerous cousins, aunts and uncles spent many happy hours together playing, camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, swimming, playing ball and enjoying life in beautiful rural Utah. Throughout his life, Mr. Clayton was known as a hard worker. His grandfather, who was the Provo city commissioner and a building contractor, taught him many skills associated with building, which served him well throughout his life. Later in life, he built room additions, patios, carports and tree houses for his loved ones. When Mr. Clayton’s grandfather died, he moved to California to live with his aunt and her family in Downey. During high school, he worked as a box boy at the Safeway store that his uncle managed. After his 1941 Downey High School graduation, Mr. Clayton worked at the Vultee Aircraft Company as a riveter, during which time the bombing of Pearl Harbor occurred and prompted him to enlist in the Navy Air Corps. Just prior to this, he met his future wife, Madelyn Stringfellow, on a blind date to a July 4th carnival while visiting Provo. The pair dated steadily, quickly fell in love and wrote each other every day during the following few years that Mr. Clayton was away from her, serving in the navy. He was stationed in Ely, Nevada; San Luis Obispo; Livermore; Norman, Oklahoma; Whidbey Island, Washington; Great Lakes, Illinois; and Corpus Christie, Texas. Mr. Clayton attended machinist and gunnery schools, and especially enjoyed learning to fly aircraft. During a 10-day leave, Mr. Clayton and Ms. Stringfellow decided to get married. In this brief time, they rushed to make all the arrangements, which were difficult during wartime. Their preparations included riding a train to Salt Lake City and back to get licenses, procuring rings, undergoing blood tests and borrowing cars and stamps to buy gas for family members to attend the ceremony. Ms. Stringfellow was able to shop for and purchase a beautiful wedding dress, and they were married in the Logan Utah LDS Temple on August 3, 1945. During their honeymoon, they heard of the bombing of Hiroshima and the end of the war. Five months later, Mr. Clayton was discharged and finally got to live with his sweetheart and enjoy married life. Mr. Clayton then attended Brigham Young University (BYU), graduating in 1948 with a degree in elementary education. He taught sixth grade in Provo for 8 years, during which time he became president of the Provo Teachers Association and received his master’s degree from BYU in educational administration. Children began coming into the home of the Clayton family. James Gary, Susan Kay and Michael Dean enjoyed the warm, happy companionship of their kind parents. marked. After working for a total of 40 years in education, Mr. Clayton retired in 1988. Mr. and Mrs. Clayton traveled for a few years following retirement, and then Mr. Clayton returned to the Pomona schools as a substitute teacher and worked nearly every day until he turned 80, when health challenges prevented him from continuing. Mr. Clayton was very active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in presidencies of various quorums and organizations. He served as a membership clerk, stake missionary and counselor in bishoprics. He was always on hand to help people move; to clean up after events and parties; to help neighbors and friends in any way. “Those who knew him were always inspired by his goodness, integrity, kindness, generosity and faithfulness,” said his daughter. Mr. Clayton is survived by his son, James Gary Clayton of Prather; his daughter and son-in-law, Sue Clayton Zylstra and Brad Zylstra, and their children, Scott and Melanie Zylstra of Claremont; his son and daughter-in-law, Michael Dean Clayton and Lorraine Wilson Clayton, and their children, Jessica Clayton Pabst and Charlene, Brian and David Clayton of Parker, Colorado. He was preceded in death by his wife, Madelyn Clayton, who died only 8 weeks earlier, on May 27, 2010. Services will be held at 10 a.m. on Monday, August 2, 2010 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 728 E. Baseline Rd., Claremont.

“Our dad was loving, thoughtful, generous and always a great example and effective teacher for us,” expressed Mr. Clayton’s daughter, Sue. The Claytons moved to Pomona where Mr. Clayton taught at Hamilton School for 12 years. After living in Pomona for 8 years, the family moved to Claremont and he became assistant principal at Lexington and Madison Schools before serving at Montview School as principal for 8 years and as principal at Yorba School for 8 years. Mr. Clayton could often be found playing kickball with the children at his schools, or working on art projects with the kindergarteners, or patching leaky roofs. Before Christmas holidays each year, he would come home from school with box after box of homemade gifts from students, families and teachers. “He was loved and appreciated by all with whom he worked,” his daughter re-

Helen Deese
Longtime Claremont resident and English professor Helen Deese died on June 4, 2010, from complications of the neurodegenerative disease Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. She was born Ethel Helen Smith on September 15, 1925 in San Diego to Clyde Thomas and Ethel Findlay Smith. Her father was an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps, taking young Ms. Deese to live in many parts of the world during her childhood, including Hong Kong, Shanghai, Guam and Parris Island, South Carolina. It was at Parris Island, at age 12, that she first met Claremont ceramicist Rupert Deese, a fellow child of the Marines at the time, who was to become her husband in 1951. After graduating from high school at age 16 in Beaufort, South Carolina, Ms. Deese studied English literature at the University of California, Los Angeles from 1943 to 1947. Upon leaving UCLA, she worked as a social worker for the San Diego County Welfare Department until 1951 when she married Mr. Deese and moved to Claremont. Also in the ‘50s, Ms. Deese worked with former Claremonter Peggy Hulse and others to found the Pomona Valley Cooperative Pre-School within the Unitarian Society of Pomona Valley, serving as teacher and treasurer from 1953 to 1965. Following a 20-year absence from higher education during which she “did my best to promote the baby boom,” she completed her studies at the University of California, Riverside, earning her bachelor’s degree in 1968, her master’s degree in1970 and her PhD in 1977, all while raising her 4 children. “She would fold clothes until midnight, then complete one page on her dissertation before going to sleep every night,” said her son, Frank. Her dissertation, “Shakespeare’s Comedies of Renascence,” focused on themes of death and rebirth in 5 of Shakespeare’s comedies. “It was a thoughtful and thought-provoking thesis, and certainly communicated Helen’s huge excitement at both the drama generally and Shakespeare in particular,” expressed Ralph Hanna, UCR distinguished professor emeritus. After completion of her doctorate, Ms.

Shakespearean, professor, social worker, mother to all in need
Deese served as an English lecturer at UCR, Cal Poly Pomona and the University of La Verne, and was an associate professor of English at Mount St. Mary’s College, Los Angeles. She later returned to teaching at UCR and established the computer-assisted learning lab in the English Department. In addition to teaching composition, she taught Shakespeare and Shakespeare on Film and reviewed Shakespearean productions for the Shakespeare Bulletin until her 2005 retirement. “In a department rather more known for ill-temper than the opposite, her simple demeanor was a major contribution,” shared Mr. Hanna. As a Fulbright Scholar in 1989-90, she took a leave from UCR and taught American Literature and Shakespeare at Janos Pannonius University in Pecs, Hungary, courageously embarking on the adventure, which included living in a “tiny, lonely apartment,” said her son, Rupert, while her husband remained in Claremont. While in Hungary, Ms. Deese lectured on American poetry at several other Hungarian universities, and at the University of Warsaw in Poland. In 1990-91, again as a Fulbright Scholar, she taught American literature and developed the first film courses at the University of Macao. She also lectured on American poetry at universities in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Nanjing and Beijing. Ms. Deese published, with Steven G. Axelrod of UCR, 4 books on 3 American poets: Critical Essays on William Carlos Williams (1995); Critical Essays on Wallace Stevens (1989); Robert Lowell: New Essays on the Poetry (1986); and Robert Lowell: A Reference Guide, (1982). She also contributed several chapters to North American players of Shakespeare: a book of interviews (2007). “Helen was beloved by those who knew her—always funny, smart, proud of her family, devoted to her students and her fellow instructors, and caring about social justice,” remarked Mr. Axelrod, who also referred to Ms. Deese as a “brilliant lecturer.” Ms. Deese shared her love of theater and Shakespeare with her children and friends. Her daughter Mary Ann recalled that, “It was a rite of passage in our famIn any form and any circumstance, Ms. Deese could not stand injustice: “It was like a rock in her shoe,” said her son, Frank. Her children recalled the time that she attempted to place a new copy of The Dictionary of American Slang on the shelves of the Upland Public Library to replace one that had been removed by the library as being “obscene” during a statewide campaign to ban the book: she was turned away. Taking up the cause, she raised a ruckus, unwilling to drop what she regarded as an unjust act. During her children’s time in Claremont schools, she also stood up against an incident of religious discrimination. Despite the hostile reaction of many—the Deese home received death threats—she did not relent. “It was amazing for us to see,” said her son, Rupert. “Talk about setting a standard.” Ms. Deese also demonstrated her concern for others by welcoming any child or person in need into her home, caring for them as if her own. Many times, she selflessly opened her doors to children whose parents, for varying reasons, could not care for them. “It was like gravity,” said Frank, “injustice or a child in need.” Ms. Deese is survived by her children, Rupert T. Deese of City Island, New York, Mary Ann D. Brow of Madison, Wisconsin, Franklin W. Deese of Los Angeles, and Richard S. “Sam“ Deese of Watertown, Massachusetts; and by her 8 grandchildren, Thomas and Elaine Brow, Rupert Hart Deese and Benjamin, Jessica, Nicholas, Charles and Leo Deese. A memorial service for Ms. Deese (and Mr. Deese) will take place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 2, 2010 in Kingman Chapel at Claremont United Church of Christ.

ily, upon reaching seventh grade, to attend all 3 Shakespeare plays performed at the Old Globe Theater in San Diego each summer. While driving us south in her Volvo, she would give us a complete tutorial on the play we were about to see so that we could better appreciate the story and all of Shakespeare’s bawdy jokes.” “Helen presented more papers and saw more plays, particularly Shakespearean productions, than anyone I knew,” shared Mr. Axelrod. Pursuing her passion, Ms. Deese was a member of the International Shakespeare Association, Modern Language Association of America, Shakespeare Association of America and the Wallace Stevens Society. She was also a member of the University Council-American Federation of Teachers, working to protect the rights of non-tenure track academic professionals of the University of California.

Rupert Deese

ceramicist, designer, man of good humor
Rupert Julian Deese, affectionately known as “Rummy” to most, died on July 12, 2010 from complications of arteriosclerosis. Mr. Deese was born to Col. Rupert Riley Deese and Mary Ketchum Deese on July 16, 1924 on the Pacific Island U.S. territory of Guam. With his father serving as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps, the family lived in numerous cities over the years, including San Diego, Quantico, Virginia and Parris Island, South Carolina. It was at Parris Island that Mr. Deese first met Helen Smith, a fellow child of the Marines and a friend of his sister, Mary. Though Mr. Deese first fell in love with young Ms. Smith’s shiny silver bike—his was an inferior red—he fell in love with her as well, and they married on March 4, 1951. After beginning public high school in La Jolla and then graduating from a high school military academy in 1942, Mr. Deese joined the US Army, serving as a bombardier and mechanic in the Army Air Corps for the remainder of World War II and until his 1946 discharge. He came to Claremont to attend Pomona College, earning a bachelor’s degree in 1950. Not originally intending to study at Pomona, he happened to be in town and just opted to stay. “He was there and thought, ‘Well, this looks good,’ and so he stayed,” said his son. Originally studying chemistry, he shifted to ceramics once informed that he was lousy in that science. Studies at Pomona were followed by an MFA in ceramics from Claremont Graduate School (now University) in 1957. There, he studied ceramics with Richard Petterson and sculpture with Albert Stewart of Scripps College. From 1957 to 1971, Mr. Deese taught ceramics at Mt. San Antonio College and worked in the dinnerware design group for Franciscan Interpace in Glendale from 1964 to 1983, designing dinnerware, glassware and stainless flatware patterns and shapes. He is best known, however, for the work he did on his own time in the Padua Hills studio he shared with Harrison McIntosh for more than 60 years. “You can imagine he was a marvelous person. We got along very, very well,” said Mr. McIntosh, who recalled Mr. Deese’s “tremendous memory for humorous stories.” Also fondly remembering Mr. Deese’s humor was cartoonist Paul Darrow, another crony in the gang he described as the “magical group” who all attended graduate school together—Mr. Deese, Mr. McIntosh, James Hueter, Karl Benjamin, Sam Maloof, Jim Fuller, etc. “I always remember him as being funny in a droll sort of way. He had this slow way of talking. He wasn’t a physically jumping jackrabbit kind of guy,” said Mr. DarMr. Deese’s mastery of design and craft has been recognized throughout his career. In 1960, he won the IBM Sweepstakes Prize at the 21st Ceramic National Exhibition at Everson Museum in New York, and he claimed first prize at the Hillcrest Arts Festival in La Habra in 1995 and 1998. In 1984, Thomas Turnquist of American Art Pottery Monthly wrote “Rupert Deese is a living master in the medium of clay.” He has artwork at a multitude of venues including Everson Museum, New York; Hillcrest Arts Festival, La Habra; Tobey C. Moss Gallery, Los Angeles; Chinati and Judd Foundations, Texas; Cuttress Gallery, Pomona; Gallery 8 and Galleria Beretich, Claremont; and numerous other places. Rob Weiner, Chinati Foundation associate director, noted that it was “an honor” to show his pottery. “His work is a constant reminder of the supreme artistry inherent in everyday objects,” Mr. Weiner said. “Deese’s vases, bowls, bottles, platters and jars command through understatement: how the lip of a vessel is just slightly heavier than the wall, softly articulating the opening, or the foot of a bowl barely lifting the swelling form off the ground.” His work is prized in numerous private and museum collections, including those of the Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian Art Institute, Washington, DC; the Boston Museum of Fine Arts; the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, Utah; and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. In 1977, U.S. Representative James Lloyd commissioned a piece for the U.S. Capitol Dining Room. Mr. Deese is survived by his children, Rupert T. Deese of City Island, New York, Mary Ann D. Brow of Madison, Wisconsin, Franklin W. Deese of Los Angeles, and Richard S. “Sam“ Deese of Watertown, Massachusetts; and by his 8 grandchildren, Thomas and Elaine Brow, Rupert Hart Deese and Benjamin, Jessica, Nicholas, Charles and Leo Deese. A memorial service for Mr. Deese (and Ms. Deese) will take place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 2, 2010 in Kingman Chapel at Claremont United Church of Christ.

row. “And he always looked like clay; we joked about him getting a tan.” Mr. Deese created his own studio work from 1950 until 2005, when he stopped in order to care for his ailing wife. Throughout their 59 years of marriage, they supported each other in their varied and fascinating endeavors, adding to the quality and fulfillment of each other’s lives through their own unique passions. Their son, Frank, remembers his father remarking appreciatively on this aspect of their relationship: “She exposed me to things that enriched my life that I never would have encountered.” Mr. Deese’s ceramic work is known for curvaceous forms and smooth surfaces, with meticulously applied patterns that provide expressive decoration while letting the shapes of the pieces remain dominant. He intended his work to be touched and used, saying in 2003, “Pots that serve their owners even beyond the time of first excitement and move into a longer possessive relationship, sustained by an agreeable usefulness, are my most happy product.” Close friend and local artist James Hueter praises these “happy products,” having long-owned numerous original pieces by Mr. Deese that continue to move him. “I have works of his art that I look at every day, and they give me a most wonderful feeling. He put into his art what he was as a person: very dedicated, very warm and rich, extremely dedicated to his family,” said Mr. Heuter. “That’s the kind of magic thing that you can only explain by looking at his work and valuing it as we valued him.” Mr. Darrow echoes this understanding of Mr. Deese as a genial fellow. “When I think of him, I smile. It was always pleasant to be around him. And you can’t beat that in a friend,” said Mr. Darrow.

Cyclist takes wild ride to capture state championship

C

laremont High School student Dominic Galenti, 16, has earned the right to be regarded as one of the best young cyclists in California,
Equipped with his blue and white Cannondale Super 6 bicycle, Dominic posted one of his biggest wins to date by outlasting 24 other riders to win the 32.25-mile Sisquoc Junior Road Race Championship in the 15-16 year-old division on June 12th. The Southern California/Nevada Cycling Association (SCNCA) event was held in Santa Maria.

“At the beginning, I was pretty nervous because it was a big race,” Dominic recalled. “As the race went on, I felt really good. Toward the end, I was mentally thinking I could win this and I thought this could be my race. It felt right the whole time.” Dominic earned 42 points as a result of his win a month ago. The Southern California Velo Juniors team representative is currently in 3rd place in the 2010 So Cal Cup Standings with 131 points. He is just 26 points behind the division leader, Alex Darville of Echelon Santa Barbara. The 16-year-old has been excited about his progress this season. Along with his championship victory, he

has also finished in the top 3 on 3 different occasions this racing season. The races included the Valley of the Sun State Race on February 14th (2nd), L.A. Circuit Race on March 28th (2nd) and the Dare to Race GP Series on April 4th (3rd).

WILD RIDE continued from the previous page

Overall, the young cyclist has competed in hundreds of races in his career., and has raced between 60 and 70 times this year. “It’s felt awesome,” said Dominic, regarding his 2010 season. “I’ve been working hard this year more than ever and to see it all pay off—I can’t explain it other than that it’s amazing.” Dominic began racing competitively 6 years ago. The soon-to-be CHS junior took his bicycle interest from his father, Dominic Galenti Sr., who owns Incycle Bicycles in Chino. “My dad had been racing and riding even when I was born,” Dominic said. “I had always wanted to give it a try and when I found out that I was pretty good

at it, it led to me racing.” Dominic’s cycling interest is the 16year-old’s extracurricular activity outside of school. When he isn’t in school, he is training nearly every day riding at Bonelli Park in San Dimas, Glendora Mountain Road and to other nearby cities from his home in Pomona. Following the end of the 2010 season in August, Dominic will take a month off before training again to prepare for the start of the 2011 season in January. While cycling takes a significant time commitment, the 16-year-old said that academics take an even higher priority. “Usually everything is about school first,” Dominic explained. “During the week, I go to school and then I ride after school. Then on the weekends, after about 12 or 1 o’clock in the afternoon,

I’ll go and hang out with my friends. But I couldn’t play sports at CHS and do this at the same time.” Next season, Dominic will advance to the 17-18 year-old division in the SCNCA. The next age group is a U23 division for cyclists between the ages of 19 and 23.

As for the future, Dominic hopes that he can turn his current interest into a profession. “I would love to possibly pursue a career in this and be able to one day make it to the big time,” he said. “But even if I don’t, this has still been amazing.”

P725288 7/31, 8/7, 08/14/2010 SUMMARY OF ORDINANCE INTRODUCED AT THE REGULAR CLAREMONT CITY COUNCIL MEETING OF JULY 27, 2010 (Full text of this ordinance is on file in the office of the City Clerk, 207 Harvard Avenue, Claremont, CA 91711) SUMMARY OF ORDINANCE AMENDING TITLE 18 OF THE CLAREMONT MUNICIPAL CODE, THE CITY’S SIGN CODE, PERTAINING TO SIGN FACE CHANGES, FREESTANDING SIGNS, TEMPORARY SIGNS, AND SIGN PROGRAMS FOR COMMERCIAL USES The Ordinance will make the following changes to the City’s Sign Code: Allow businesses to have freestanding identification signs in addition to building-mounted signs subject to one of three general criteria (building is set back from street, sign is needed to provide identification to motorists, or building-mounted sign not feasible or desirable based on design of building.) This change would not be applicable to the Claremont Village or the Village Expansion area. The permitted size of freestanding signs for individual business signs would remain as currently specified in the Sign Code. Allow multi-tenant center signs if included as part of a center sign program or if consistent with the City’s Multi-Tenant Retail Center Sign Enhancement Program guidelines. Signs would be required to include the names of more than one tenant, but need not include the names of all tenants. The names of the tenants would be required to be of a size that is legible to motorists traveling on adjacent streets. One sign would be permitted per frontage with the potential for more signs if a frontage exceeds 500 feet. Flexibility to the number of permitted signs would also be possible if part of a sign program that has unique design characteristics and/or demonstrates a creative approach. Sign size and height would be as determined appropriate for the street frontage, size of center, and design of the signs. Signs would be reviewed subject to the design criteria in the City’s Sign Code. These criteria require the signs to be in harmony with the building it serves, with surrounding development and adjacent streets, and that the size and height of signs be appropriate to the distance from which the sign is normally viewed. Legibility is to have priority over complexity in a sign’s design. The total aggregate area of all signs allowed would be limited relative to the land area of the center rather than length of a center’s street frontage. The total aggregate area of signs shall not exceed the following: 2.5 sq. ft. per 1,000 sq. ft. of center property for the first 40,000 sq. ft. of center; plus 2.0 sq. ft. per 1,000 sq. ft. of the portion of center property exceeding 40,000 square feet up to a maximum size of 80,000 sq. ft.; plus 1.0 sq. ft. per 1,000 sq. ft. for portion of property larger than 80,000 sq. ft. However, all centers would be allowed one minimum-sized, multi-tenant sign per street frontage regardless of center size (20-50 sq. ft. depending on zoning district.) Establish that the City will adopt a Multi-Tenant Center Sign Enhancement Program to promote more effective identification of tenants within existing centers, and to enhance the image of existing centers within the community. Allow center identification signs that have only the name of the center in addition to multi-tenant signs. Remove distance requirement for freestanding freeway-oriented signs and permit the identification of more than three tenants on freestanding freeway-oriented signs. Clarify that a single business may have a sign program. Clarify that a sign face change for a new or existing business does not require separate review by the commission if the new sign face is consistent with an established sign program or is similar to the sign face that is being replaced. Incorporate the temporary provisions adopted last year pertaining to temporary banners, A-frame signs, and window signs. Please publish one time: July 31, 2010
