Faith for Equality
Dear Editor: Claremont can take pride in a small, historic event that happened during our Fourth of July parade this year. CA Faith for Equality tells us that the parade entry “Drumbeats for Marriage Equality” is the first collaborative, autonomous faith group march for marriage equality in the history of our state. We marching participants from this parade moment, gratefully share this historic experience with all in our celebratory audience. As the individual who signed the parade application, I would like to thank, very deeply, each faith group that showed the courage, leadership, conviction and compassion to march as part of our group: Claremont United Church of Christ, Temple Beth Israel, La Verne Church of the Brethren, Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church, Monte Vista Unitarian Universalists and the Claremont Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). These faith groups understand, as CA Faith for Equality understands, that legalization of gay marriage is a preliminary step in our work as faith communities. A look at civil rights movements in American history reminds us that the work of faith groups advanced the abolition of slavery and the enfranchisement of women. Yet, even after these civil rights were established, society was clearly not cured of its racist ills and women did not achieve immediate equality in status. The fear, pain and even cruelty experienced by both opponents and proponents of gay marriage, will not be healed by the legal acquisition of this basic and imperative human right. In continuing to work to achieve full equality, the faith groups who marched in this historic parade entry will be present to listen, dialog, understand and bring compassion and faith to bear on problems that will arise long after marriage equality is legalized in California. Again, I express my deepest gratitude to these very particular congregations who participate in the journey toward human rights.

the oversight committee, and has not accomplished this task in now SIX years, the Controller states that he cannot implement the Governor’s directive to temporarily cut the state worker’s salary to $7.50 per hour because the current software will not handle this change. So another bureaucratic snafu allows “business as usual” to go on in the Controller’s office and forces more massive loans to be made in order to pay the multitude of state employees while the legislature takes its own sweet time about passing a budget (A budget, by the way, that was supposed to be firmed up BY LAW as of the end of June). When are all these government officials and legislatures going to comprehend that we cannot and WILL NOT stand for “business as usual” and surreptitiously raising taxes, instead of cutting staff, programs and “entitlements?”

Dear Editor: In 2004, the California legislature authorized $130 million to upgrade the payroll system for the state employees. This system has not been updated since 1970. In 2006, John Chiang was elected as State Controller. He was responsible (among other things) for implementing this upgrade that had not been accomplished in the previous 2 years. As of this date, the system is still not upgraded and won’t be for at least another 2 years. Because the Controller’s office has given excuse after excuse to

Carmen Placencia, 44, an Asian female from Pico Rivera, suffered from a gunshot wound before her body was dumped on the side of the road and lit afire, said Ed Winter, Assistant Chief of the Coroner Department. An autopsy was performed on Wednesday, June 30, the day after the body was discovered. Last Tuesday around 4 a.m., the California Highway Patrol was called regarding a brush fire just south of the 210 Free-

way, about 300 yards east of the Base Line Road on-ramp. Los Angeles County Fire Department officials responded to put out the blaze and quickly discovered the burning body. The Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department is the lead law enforcement agency investigating the murder. The Claremont Police Department is assisting in the investigation. When reached by telephone Tuesday, Sheriffs Lieutenant Michael Irving said there is no new information about the case at this time. Anyone with information about the crime is urged to contact the Sheriffs Department or the Claremont Police Department.

Volunteers from several local organizations spent much of the day on Saturday getting Memorial Park ready for the holiday.

Celebrating the Fourth by serving our community

C

laremont resident Jerry Feingold has proved that serving others may be the best way to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday.
Having volunteered for Claremont’s Fourth of July event on behalf of the Kiwanis Club of Claremont for many years, the 70-year-old Pomona native took on

a greater role in this year’s holiday festivities as a volunteer on the Claremont Fourth of July committee. “I’ve done the [Kiwanis] pancake breakfast for awhile—this is my first year on the committee,” Mr. Feingold said. “This event is like Hometown USA. It’s a chance to be part of the community and what’s happening.” Mr. Feingold’s Fourth of July duties began on Sat-

urday helping other committee members set up for Sunday’s events at Memorial Park. In about 2 hours, he had up chairs and tables, assisted in chalking areas on Tenth Street for parade groups, placed liners in 77 recycling containers and hung decorations within the information booth. Sunday was a full day for Mr. Feingold. Beginning at 6 a.m., he set up canopies to cover the eating area for the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast. By 7:30 a.m., he was circling the tables to make sure syrup containers were constantly full. The Claremonter made his rounds for nearly 2 hours that included a steady stream of customers following the 5K run around 9 a.m. “We end up serving more than 1000 people,” he explained. “After they’ve been running, they’re worked up an appetite.” After helping his wife Maury sell fireworks tickets, they headed over to the main stage area to watch the “Star Spangled Claremont” flag raising and opening ceremonies at 10 a.m. Thirty minutes later, the Feingolds took a 4-hour break before returning at 2:30 pm to assist in a special reception setup. Ninety minutes later, they watched groups of people and floats pass by during the parade. Just an hour later, they traveled to Pomona College to sell fireworks tickets at the gates before finally being able to enjoy the fireworks show themselves at 9 p.m. From start to finish, Mr. Feingold approached every task with genuine joy and enthusiasm. Whether cracking jokes with fellow Kiwanians or meeting new people for the first time, the 6-feet, 4-inch man elicited smiles from many of the people he encountered. “I enjoy doing this more than the fireworks show

itself,” Mr. Feingold pointed out. “I can see the fireworks every Friday night at Angels Stadium. But when I volunteer, I’m able to talk to and get to know people. Everybody is in the mood to have a good time and that makes it fun.” The sense of community is what has kept he and his wife in Claremont for the last 35 years. Along with his service to the Claremont community as a Kiwanian, he also provides sporting equipment to local schools and throughout southern California through his business SuchA-Deal. Yet for Mr. Feingold, it is the people in Claremont who make the difference. “It’s a nice place to make friends and get involved,” he said. “We had 3 kids who went through Claremont schools at the same time and my wife and I were on almost every committee at the high school and are still friends with the people we served with.” Though Mr. Feingold endured a busy weekend with the Claremont Fourth of July event, his calling to public service continues. On Monday, he was at Memorial Park at 4 p.m. setting up for the first 2010 Summer Concert Series event featuring the Ravelers. The series will continue each Monday night through September. “Hey, I can’t miss the fun,” he said.

Summer is no season to downsize
by John Pixley

Really? He has had his motorized wheelchair for 18 years. Wow! Imagine that!
I can. Or, at least, I’d like to. The old Quickie P200 was the best power chair I had, and it was a sad day when, about seven years ago, mine died, with the motors pooping of after eight solid years of no problems, as I rode along Bonita Avenue. I have never been as satisfied with the new P200, and I’m not crazy about its computerized Qtronix joystick, with its 5-speed modes. Indeed, as the old saying goes, they don’t make them like they used to. Dan agreed. He said he never liked the Qtronix and always preferred the old joystick with its simple on/off switch and speed dial. Which is why he has scavenged and hunted down parts for his old chair. Who would’ve known? I found this out when Dan came up to me as I sat listening to the South American pipe musicians playing on a recent Wednesday evening at the street fair— Family Fun Night?—in the Village. I knew Dan when I went to school at Danbury—back when it was at Danbury School!—and then at Claremont High School. He was Danny back then. The last time I heard about Dan, he was asking the Claremont City Council to do something about Foothill Transit changing one of its bus routes through Claremont. He was upset that the bus no longer went by where he lives off of Foothill Boulevard. He is still bothered about the route change, and we talked a bit about the challenges of riding the bus and how being in a wheelchair adds to them. I indicated that I certainly know something about this. “I can only imagine—huh?” he quipped. He got that right. I could have told him about the time I was in LA and a driver jumped up and down — literally—in frustration and despair when she saw that I wanted to get on her bus. On the other hand, I also could have told him about

the time a companion and I found ourselves stranded in the Silver Lake neighborhood of LA at 11 on a Saturday night and were able to take 3 buses and get dropped off a block away from my house here in Claremont. Yes, there was panicking, and, yes, we arrived back at about 4 a.m, but to this day almost 10 years later, I am amazed that, with some tips from kind street people and sympathetic bus drivers (I guess they come out at night) I could get from LA to almost my doorstep by bus very late on a Saturday night. I’ve been thinking about how all these stories about wheelchairs and buses came up when Dan saw me after all these years. I’ve been thinking about how this could have happened anywhere—perhaps I could have run into Dan anytime in the Village—but that it is more likely for it to happen at something like the Wednesday evening street fair (not to mention our Fourth of July celebration a few days ago). And I’ve been thinking about how it is unfortunate that it is now a bit less likely that it would happen. At least there is a street fair going on for a few months now. I thought for a while that there wouldn’t be one this year, that last year was a one-time experiment. April came and went, and May was quickly passing, and I saw no sign of it. Then it turned out that it was planned for June, July and August. This is a cut-back from last year, when, in its first outing, it went from late April through mid-October. But that’s not all. This year, the street fair is limited to one block along Second Street, whereas last year it

also spread down Oberlin and on First Street in front of the Packing House. And what happened to the drumming circle? Also the kids’ carnival area? I don’t know if these cut-backs have anything to do with the people who griped about there being hot-dogs-ona-stick and carnies in Claremont. They can probably barely stand the petting zoo and pony rides with their stink of hay and manure. Is this about not having “that element” in the Village? Is this about getting people —but the right people, not just any people—into the Village? As I say, I don’t know, but I do know that this cutting back goes against the grain of summer. Summer isn’t the season to downsize. Summer is about getting out and spreading out, like the fair did when it spread out and embraced the other streets. It is the season of fun and sun and of sprawling and going a bit—or, what the heck, much—farther. Summer is about exploring and expanding. It is going to camp and reunions and doing internships and all things enriching and extra-curricular. It is the season of seeing where one comes from, seeing those we haven’t seen in years, on the way to doing brand new things and discovering where one is going. Summer is the time for suddenly growing too tall and for taking some chances. Although care should always be taken, summer isn’t the season to hold back, much less cut back. I suspect that the Wednesday evening street fair being downsized is mostly due to the economic hard times we are in. This is understandable, but, in this case, cutting is not only unwise but also may actually hurt us. When times are hard, we need all the opportunities we can get to get together to encourage one another and to find the hope and strength we need in our community.

If we can’t take it with us, can we have it sent?

Say it ain’t so, Joe!

Dear Editor: I’ll begin my message by conveying to you that I have been a proud employee of CUSD for 35 years, and I have seen 6 superintendents who have come and gone. I have respectfully been on the California School Employees Association Negotiations’ Committee (CSEA) without doubt for 30 or so years and on the Communication Team from the time it began in the 1990’s. I have sat by this last school year studying the teachers’ union negotiations with great interest. It saddens me to see the best interest of our employees’ jobs in the future are at risk. The CSEA Chapter #200 settled their contract in June by agreeing to 6 furlough days for the upcoming 2010-2011 school year. This secures and protects our classified employees with no layoffs for our team. After that, who knows what will happen. We can only hope for the best outcome for all, in the near future. The one thing that baffles me is how Joe Tonan and his team do not realize just about all school districts, state, county and private sector employees in the region of southern California have agreed to furlough days. This is something everyone is contributing to in order to save jobs. Each individual has to take a lot into consideration. Which is more crucial than the other? One can choose to take the maximum of 6 furlough days off

readers’ comments
next year. Or put numerous jobs in jeopardy and have layoffs. This will in certainty find themselves or a very close co-worker in the unemployment line. I would rather have a little less money on my paycheck each month, then no money at all to pay my bills. Which is the intelligent yet sensible resolution? At this time, Joe Tonan and group would like the district to spend the 9 percent (not 11 percent) reserves that the district currently has. Lisa Shoemaker, assistant superintendent of business services, explained the whole reserve circumstances to everybody numerous times. And in the best interest of the district, it would not be the smartest decision to make. As an employee, I don’t want to sink the district. I want to have a place where my union brothers and sisters can still work, and not be another unemployment statistic. Now on to the quandary the CFA has with the district lawyer. Seems to me each step in this negotiation process with the CUSD and CFA costs the district more money with arbitration, fact finding, grievances etc. than anything else. Where does it all end? I must say that CSEA has always tried to save jobs. You give out the impression of the old guard teachers who don’t care about our new striving teachers. So I say to you, get involved in your union! We need to send out a more positive message, and not be so pessimistic. In conclusion, we have weathered terrible situations in the past as a whole group (management, teachers and classified employees) but not this time. As for the water situation Joe, call me. If needed, I’ll provide you with a water bottle for your next negotiating meeting. You see, with closing this letter, there are other imperative matters to be concerned about. And as for the cockroach problems, shame on you. Disrespecting and or defaming our district that you chose to work for will not get us past this imperative point in a time of needing to be a united front. If you keep having the district pay out funds on all of your inconsequential apprehension, they won’t have any resources left to call an exterminator. Hope this comes to a close soon.
Bruce Plumb Lead Groundsman, CUSD Claremont

our country’s freedom and independence. We should be honoring the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for our freedom. Whether you agree with war or not, we should all be showing our support to those brave men and women. There was nothing in that parade that showed our military and their families support. Remember, these men and women have chosen to fight for the freedom of this country. Let’s keep the “Marriage Equality” and “Anti-war” groups out of the parade. Keep the politics out of it! Let’s celebrate and honor the meaning of the 4th of July…Independence Day. God Bless America and those who fight for and protect our freedom.

Dorothy Smith
Dorothy Hosford Smith, a Claremont resident for more than half a century and founder of the Claremont Colleges Counseling Center, died at her home at Mt. San Antonio Gardens on June 23, 2010. Mrs. Smith was 94 years of age. A woman for whom a handicap seemed like a tiny bump in the road, Dorothy Hosford was born in Chicago, Illinois on March 17, 1916 to William and Marjorie Hosford. She was the second of five children. The family moved to Maplewood, New Jersey when Dorothy was a child due to her father’s transfer with Western Electric to New York City. After contracting polio at the age of 15, then Dorothy Hosford was confined by the paralysis to her home for an extended period of time. Her parents sent her to Warm Springs, Georgia to the hydrotherapy center that was founded and owned by Franklin D. Roosevelt. It was there that she met Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was a frequent visitor there. When he was elected President of the United States, Dorothy was one of several young polio patients who were invited to the presidential inauguration in 1933. The group traveled by a special train car to Washington, D.C. Dorothy was among a small group in the oval office when Mr. Roosevelt was brought in and introduced for the first time as President of the United States.

pioneer counselor, tireless volunteer
Following her therapy at Warm Springs, Dorothy spent time at Children’s Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland where she continued treatment and tutoring. She then enrolled at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Her collegiate years were busy ones. She was president of her Alpha Chi Omega sorority, a member of Phi Beta Kappa, and, during her senior year, a member of Mortar Board, a national honor society recognizing college seniors for superior achievement in scholarship, leadership and service. Following her graduation with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology in 1939, she took a position as Director of Admissions at the college. At the end of World War II, Dorothy enrolled in the psychology department at the University of California at Berkeley. There she earned her master’s degree and took courses toward a doctoral degree. While living at the International House, she met Herbert Smith. The couple was married on July 1, 1952, and in the fall of that year moved to Claremont where Mr. Smith became a professor of history at Pomona College. In 1958, Mrs. Smith was asked by Pomona College Dean Edward Sanders to start a counseling center for students. It was the beginning of the Claremont Colleges Counseling Center, and where Mrs. Smith counseled students until her her case management work with those at the shelter for keeping her in tune with the economic realities and the challenges for families of poverty. Her wide interests were put to good use during extensive travel with her husband during sabbaticals and on other occasions as well. The couple’s itinerary over the years included visits to all of the continents of the globe. Their travels included a year of residence in Bangkok, Thailand where Mrs. Smith tutored students in English while Mr. Smith was teaching at Chulalongkorn University. The Smiths often kept daily journals of the travels and mailed them weekly to family and friends. Mrs. Smith developed many enduring friendships and touched countless lives during her career as a counselor and her years as a resident of Mt. San Antonio Gardens. She is survived by her husband of 58 years, Herb Smith of Claremont; by her brother, William Hosford of Ann Arbor, Michigan, by her sister, Helen Bierwirth of Darnestown, Maryland and by numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by two brothers, Norman and James Hosford. At Mrs. Smith’s request, there are no memorial services. Any memorial offerings may be to a cause of the donor’s choice.

She also became a Certified Braille Transcriber, a process that takes at least a year, and produced a telephone directory in Braille for the sight-impaired residents at the Gardens. For a number of years, Mrs. Smith was a regular volunteer for the shelter for the homeless in Pomona that was sponsored by the Pomona Inland Valley Council of Churches. She credited

Stitching life TOGETHER
Vietnam refugee finds Claremont niche

L

an Luong of Claremont has had a few bombs drop on her, some literal, one figurative, and each dramatically altering the course of her life.

In 1975, at age 17, when bombs fell on her home city of Lam Dong, Vietnam, with zero planning and only a small bag, she fled her country. “We didn’t think about coming to the United States, we just left to get away from the bomb area,” she said. And in 2003, in her 40s and having been settled in Claremont for almost 2 decades, another blast hit Ms. Luong, this time a diagnosis of leukemia. When healthy again 3 years later and ready to resume work as an electronic technician, the company had closed. “I decided to take another turn,” she said. Ms. Luong’s redirection led her to become the owner of Miklan Design, an alteration and custom clothing business on the corner of Arrow Highway and Indian Hill Boulevard. “I love this Claremont corner. And the Claremont people, I love them,” said Ms. Luong. Back in 1975, on “Black Friday,” when Communist forces invaded South Vietnam, Ms. Luong watched her country recede as she sailed to safety on a navy battleship along with her brother (a member of the navy) and his wife and son. Porting in the Philippines for a month, Ms. Luong gained refugee status,

then set sail for Camp Pendleton, San Diego. A few months later, she was “sponsored” by a Chino couple, and life began anew, but it wasn’t easy: “terrible at first,” she said. “I was a high school kid, I barely knew English, I had never worked in my life, not even made a meal for my family. My family was very wealthy in Vietnam,” Ms. Luong explained. “Here, we start from very bottom.” But Ms. Luong had a skill, one she had learned under the tutelage of her father, a tailor. Interestingly, her father dreamed of his only daughter (among 5 sons) becoming a college professor instead of fol-

lowing in his footsteps. “He didn’t want me to do tailoring,” she said. Despite his wishes, she needed to make a living and found work in a clothing factory in Pomona. But unfamiliar with the daunting, industrial sewing machines, she sewed right over her fingers and was fired. This occurred at several factories, Ms. Luong repeatedly injuring herself and losing her job because companies were fearful of being sued. “But I had to make it anyway, because I was very far away from my family. No choice,” she said, notSTITCHING LIFE TOGETHER continues on the next page
