Education at BFS
Dear Editor: Harrison Stephens (Readers’ Comments, April 17, 2010) is quite right that the Bernard Field Station [BFS] land was first thought of by the college founders as an area for new colleges. However, sometimes serendipity steps in as it has in the history of this piece of land, and a better idea develops. This land was given by Miss Scripps for ‘educational purposes.’ The BFS certainly fulfills that goal. Classes ranging from biology to art to social science and from all five colleges take place there, and every year hundreds of college students use it. Several hundred K-12 students use it as well. Its educational use is not in the least “debatable.” As a natural laboratory, it is vital to the education of succeeding generations of our students who will be making decisions about our environment and natural resources. It is at least as valuable and much more rare than teaching or research labs bounded by four walls. When the Keck Graduate Institute was proposed for the western portion of the BFS, it was not a ‘few’ faculty who were opposed. The faculties of four of the five undergraduate colleges voted overwhelmingly against building on the BFS (one did not take a vote). Hundreds of students wrote letters, signed petitions and protested. There was a lawsuit and a referendum petition. As a result, KGI bought its current property on Arrow, thus actually expanding the land held by the Claremont Colleges. This opposition may indeed give potential developers pause, as Mr. Stephens suggests. But there will inevitably be an end to College expansion anyway. Mr. Stephens thinks more colleges will bring glory to Claremont; others of us think having a field station does that. As it happens, some faculty have proposed that a Graduate Institute of Environmental Design be created and located in the BFS, thus providing a new institution for the consortium and preserving the habitat for teaching, surely a win-win suggestion. Mr. Stephens thinks it ironic that the BFS is named for Robert J. Bernard who was key to developing the consortium. This is, rather, a tribute to a man who was not so mired in the past that he could not see the future and change his mind. In his history of the Colleges, Bernard wrote of the field station: “A

tour of the property readily convinces visitors of the importance of keeping such a beautiful expanse of land, shrubs, and trees for scientific purposes.” He was ahead of his time; I hope others catch up.

A beer-lover’s dream helps a noble cause

COURIER photos/Steven Felschundneff Curt Dale had been a home brewer most of his life before he started Dale Brothers Brewery with his brother Andy Dale.

I

t was the “perfect blue collar charity event,” as one guest described it. “I don’t do wine and cheese,” Jason Contreras said. “This is much more my style.”
Sudzapalooza at the Fairplex was a beer-lover’s dream with more than 150 micro brews and imported beers on tap for sampling. The event was held Friday evening just outside the Fairplex’s Finish Line Sports Grill, under a tented enclosure where people mingled and enjoyed the food and beverages. With pork sliders, chicken wings, quesadillas, and German pretzels with mustard, the finger food partnered nicely with the beverage selection. “We really enjoy doing community events like this,” said John Solomon, president of Liquorama. “I think it helps set us apart from big box stores. We like to give back to the community that has given us so much.” Hundreds of tickets were sold at a cost of $35 each with profits for the event going to the Fairplex Career and Technical Education Center, which offers training in agriculture, arts, business, automotive, construction and environmental studies. The program provides career and technical education in a hands-on learning environment. Students are taught by both professional educators and people working in industry in the center’s “classroom with-

out walls” on the Fairplex grounds. “This is a great program for an employer like me,” said Mr. Contreras, who owns an auto body shop in San Dimas. “It seems like nobody wants to work for us anymore. So when we heard about the event at the chamber meeting and knew it would raise money for people in our field, we wanted to come out and support it.” Mr. Solomon said the program is great for people seeking to jump into the job market straight after high

school. “Not everyone is meant to go to college,” he said. “I didn’t go to college and I turned out okay. This program offers young adults some real skills that they can build a career on.” One of the most intriguing beers was the Pizza Beer, ale brewed with oregano, basil, tomato and garlic. Made by Sprecher Brewing Co. in Glendale, Wisconsin, the flavorful beer is available for purchase at Liquorama in Upland. Other popular beers included the Chili Beer, with a hint of spice in each sip, the John Henry Three Lick Spiker Ale, brewed with roasted malts creating a chocolate flavor, and the Arrogant Bastard Ale with heavy hops and malt flavoring. Local brewers Dale Brothers also set up at the event. They were sampling their most popular beer, the Pomona Queen, and some seasonal beers like the Winter Haze. At their brewery in Upland, brothers Curt and Andy Dale produce roughly 100 kegs of beer every 3 weeks which sells at restaurants throughout the area. All the beers available at the event are available for purchase at Liquorama. “This is a good way to keep in contact with the community and keep our name in drinkers’ ears,” Curt Dale said. “Charity events like this are fun and it helps remind the public that we’re out there.”

Pilgrims show ingenuity with sustainability goal

P

ilgrim Place is taking on a new initiative over the next 5 years that calls for its community to reduce energy usage by at least 25 percent by 2015.

The actively engaged senior community held a ceremony last Friday to celebrate campus-wide energy use assessments, learn what the assessments mean through PowerPoint presentations, and announce more information regarding the energy savings pilot project. The project involves collaboration between Pilgrim Place’s management team and Energy Retrofit Group, as well as the City of Claremont, HartmanBaldwin Design/Build and Every Watt Matters. “When [Pilgrim Place CEO] Bill Cunitz, [HartmanBaldwin President] Devon Hartman and I met last year and talked about it, we were very excited about it,” said Steve Rogers, Pilgrim Place vice president of campus services. “Based on the data from the assessments, we will be able to make the entire campus a model to the community for environmental efficiency.” Along with Mr. Rogers, Pilgrim Place Board of Directors Chair Diana Owings, Claremont Mayor Linda Elderkin, Every Watt Matters representative Andrew Durben, Mr. Hartman and Pilgrim Place residents Judy O’Neill and Jane Douglass were featured speakers at Friday’s event. Ms. O’Neill said the event was just the beginning of the work that will take place over the next 5 years. “I feel like it’s report card time and I really had that sense when everybody walked into the room,” she said. “This is the beginning and not the result of the complete process. Assessing is just one step.” All 164 independent living spaces will be part of

the energy reduction effort. One way Pilgrim Place will reduce energy is by retrofitting its residential units through upgrades such as better insulation, double pane windows and solar roofing. One hundred percent of the Pilgrim Place residents are in favor of the sustainable effort. Pilgrim Place is no stranger to ambitious efforts as the community reduced water consumption by 50 percent in the 4th year of a 5-year goal. Now the community hopes to fulfill its 25 percent goal and set itself up as a national model of energy reduction. “One of the goals is to enhance the environment and [increase] sustainability on the Pilgrim Place campus,” Ms. Owings said. “The board is very proud of the vision for the future.” According to the present plan, Pilgrim Place will have audits conducted on some of the residences and analyze data from assessments and audits in order to come up with a strategic plan. The final step in the plan will be the retrofitting of residential units with

rebates and incentives involved. City of Claremont Senior Planner Chris Veirs was present during Friday’s celebration and offered his support for the Pilgrim Place endeavor. The city is currently hoping to retrofit approximately 1300 homes through Claremont in collaboration with community organizations and local businesses. According to Mr. Veirs, there are multiple programs and incentives for Claremont residents to consider in retrofitting their homes. “Our goal is for the city and community to reduce energy by 20 percent by 2015,” he said. “The city has already done things in its own facilities to push towards that goal. Energy is going up because a lot more energy is being used. So we’re looking for ways to convince residents to reduce energy and there are both loans and incentives available for doing so.”

and it was exciting for everyone involved. There really was no loser.” Claremont United Maxson head coach Josh Maxson also enjoyed the experience even though his team came up short in the championship match. According to the coach, for both teams to not score a single goal during regulation proved how evenly matched they were.

Claremont United Lynch goalie Andrew Pugno provided the defense at the goal and teammate Travis Coombs supplied the winning shot in the left corner of the goal to lift their team to victory in an all-Claremont final on April 11th at the Ontario Soccer Park. “It was awesome,” said Claremont United Lynch head coach Terrence Lynch. “Both teams played incredibly

“To have it tied 0-0 all the way through is incredible because we both had teams that scored a lot of goals throughout the year,” Coach Maxson said. “Both goalies were outstanding. And one of the kids told me that no matter what, Claremont wins.” Coach Lynch’s squad only lost one match during the entire season en route to capturing the crown. Derek Ayala, Travis Coombs, Marcel Demidov, Anthony Farraj, Jackson Loeffler, Benjamin Lynch, Brandon Mikasa, Andrew Pugno and Wolfie Wilborn made up the 2010 roster.

Small towns, big hope
by John Pixley

“A sliver of hope.”
There was hope, I saw, in that picture a couple weeks ago in the Los Angeles Times. The sky was a fresh blue, lightening, getting used to the warming sun. The trees were barren, but the black branches were thrusting up to the sky, ready to bud with new life. Green sprouts were beginning to carpet the brown, dull ground, thawing in a welcome to the sun’s new warmth. The scene, full of the promise of new life, may have been near here, or it may have been someplace far away. Even as we have our lush lawns and our gardens full of oranges and camellias during the winter here, even as it is noted over and over that we have no seasons here, we celebrate the lilies and poppies, the wild flowers and other blooms, as well as green on the brown hills, that arrive here with Spring. But there was something all too different in the picture. There were four men crouching on the still-hard, still-cold ground. Two of the men wore orange hard hats and bright orange rescue vests. The others had on dark blue bib overalls, with one tugging anxiously on his bib. No doubt it was the “sliver of hope” that the man was really tugging at, along with the rest of the nation. He was a coal miner, and there had been an accidental blast in a coal mine in West Virginia a few days before, killing 25. There were still four miners unaccounted for, and an official had said that there was a sliver of hope that the four had gotten to a safe area and were still alive. The men were waiting for it to be safe enough to go back down into the mine for a search. Very tragically, after four days, the four miners were found to be dead, raising the accident’s death toll to 29. It was the largest, deadliest U.S. mining accident in decades. It was also a reminder of how dangerous a job coal mining is and how different—but really not so different—a small coal mining town in rural West Virginia, with its hard, dangerous work, is from Claremont. I learned a lot from watching the news that week. I learned that coal mining is much different than in the past, and so are the coal mining towns. The mining is now more likely to involve computers and technology

observer
than shovels and hand-lit dynamite, and the town now tend to be pretty villages in wooded hills, with homes featuring flat-screen TVs. The Hollywood version of the grimey-haired coal miner’s daughter living in a tinroofed shack is very much out of date. Another thing I learned is that coal mining is still one of the most dangerous jobs. Yes, the job is not the same, with many improvements having been made, but miners still get black lung disease, and horrible accidents can still happen. It doesn’t help that the mine where the deaths occurred was fined several times in the last year or two and that it is generally agreed that this accident was preventable. Finally, I learned that this work is seen as very important—“the backbone of America”—and comes with considerable pride. Moreover, with wages of something like $25 an hour, it is often the best job around, despite all the danger and despite grumbling about corrupt, corner-cutting bosses and owners. One of the articles accompanying the photograph in the Los Angeles Times told of a man telling his tearful, protesting mother that he was going being down into the mine despite the accident having happened. There are old songs about the hard work and hard life of miners, such as was featured by Ellen Chase of the Folk Music Center and others in a concert of work and protest songs at Pitzer College last month. Sure, these sad songs about harsh existence are old, from the last century and before, but it is too easy to say that they are just from another time and from another place. Hard, anxious times are not just a sweet, old song. What I saw in the picture of the anxiously waiting

miners is that Claremont is not that different, not that far off, from a West Virginia coal mining community. And it’s not just that we too have new budding and blooms arriving with Spring and that, as has been recently in evidence, April often has some of the year’s chilliest weather here. As with the miners, we in Claremont live on hope. Sometimes, this hope is happily and perhaps spectacularly fulfilled; other times, it is bitterly and maybe tragically dashed. I was reminded of this several weeks ago when I noticed the Bedol’s What’s Next store having a closing sale. While I didn’t frequent this shop, its shutting down has been particularly stinging for me, because it was one of the first and one of the most striking in the new village area. It was almost like losing Casa Flores, which still stands empty after half a year, like the hole left after losing a childhood friend. There is lots of hope that the Village expansion will succeed, and it is hard to see it trying to succeed in the midst of a major economic downturn. The empty storefronts and shops going out of business are discouraging, to say the least. And why has it taken so long for the Three Forks Restaurant, which was highly rated and very popular, to reopen after its kitchen fire. None of this is like a blast killing dozens. Not at all. But we also have our hillside fires. And, especially with all the news about earthquakes in the last few months, we are aware that we live in earthquake country. I hear people saying that “the big one” is coming in the next day or two—even as they make plans for next week or next month. But what else can we do? And what else can the people in the West Virginia mining town do? As devastated as they surely are, they will go on, like the rest of us, with their life there, hoping and striving for the best. Not unlike the buds coming out—even here—on the bare branches reaching up for the warming April sun.

We can be grateful they haven’t had to cut back on our food.

Christians and health care

Dear Editor: I would like to make a few comments on Robert E. Smith’s editorial in the Saturday April 17th COURIER issue. Mr. Smith states, “Most of those attacking the recent Health Reform law are Christians. And many of them deplore getting health insurance for millions of uninsured Americans who are desperately in need of medical help.” Mr. Smith goes on to say that “... these ‘Christians’ yield to greed and reject the path of compassion taught by their religion.” I believe that Mr. Smith's views are naive and misguided. It is well documented that conservatives, largely Christians give about 30 percent more than liberals. To the surprise of many, conservative-headed families make slightly less money, about 6 percent less, based on a Syracuse University study conducted by Prof Arthur C. Brooks and published in his book, Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism. Based on his findings, Conservatives are 18 percent more likely to give blood. They actively engage in charitable giving to organizations such as St. Judes, City of Hope, Ronald McDonald Homes, and more, which provide excellent health care and services to those who cannot afford it themselves. It is also noteworthy that members of congregations give anywhere from 10 to 30 percent of their income, to tithing

readers’ comments
and much of the donations that Christian churches receive go towards helping those who are in need. Don't tell me, Mr. Smith, that Christians don’t care and that we “reject the path of compassion.” Without the Conservatives or “Christians” outpouring of support we would be a society of complete and utter chaos. Robert Smith and his liberal counterparts need to work harder to match the compassion of Christian conservatives and to live up to their “bleeding hearts” position.

no agenda other than attempting to undermine the President of the United Sates and whatever policies he deems appropriate; I'll leave it up to the readers of this paper to determine how patriotic those people really are. “Contemplate the issues?” I'd love to debate the issues, but when people drive by our antiwar rallies, as one did last week, with a McCain/Palin sticker on his car, and yells “You guys wanted Obama—he’s the wartime president!” it is obvious that it’s difficult to contemplate the issues with people who refuse to look at facts and/or blatantly lie. I’m just sorry that wanting all people to have health care and not die like

45,000 a year do, wanting our troops to be out of harm’s way and wanting our country to do what is needed to protect this beautiful Mother Earth on which we reside are all seen by some as unpatriotic (as well as “Socialist,” “Fascist” and other buzzwords which the speakers usually cannot define). Mr. Lyon, I welcome debate—that is what America should be based on. When we can all start thinking about what is best for ALL the people who reside in this country and not just the “chosen few,” we will have a forum in which honest debate can occur. Until that time, it remains the Party of Change vs. the Party of “No.” We cannot function as a democracy in that manner. Peace,

Constitutionality in America

Dear Editor: This letter is in response to the April 17 Readers’ Comment from Douglas Lyon. Mr. Lyon, my question is very simple: If you are, as you state, concerned about the constitutionality of “Obamacare,” then why are you not writing letters about the unconstitutionality of illegal wiretapping, stolen elections, torture, and last, but surely not least, entering this country into a war which was justified by proven lies?

Janis Van Dusen
Janis Van Dusen, age 81, died at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center on April 11, 2010 after a lifetime of health challenges. Born in San Diego on June 21, 1928 to George and Claire Humiston, she and her older sister, Denise, grew up in Coronado in a loving house full of extended family. After graduating from Coronado High School, she went on to business school. Despite living in various other locations over the years, in her heart, Coronado would be home through most of her life. As a teenager, Mrs. Van Dusen’s first job was in the Coronado Bakery. She next took a job as a “soda jerk” at the local drugstore fountain. Her last job in Coronado was at the Hotel Del Coronado Laundry where she started as a clerk and later became the bookkeeper. It was during this time that she met Harmon Van Dusen, a sailor from Seattle, Washington, on a blind date. After a year of dating they headed to Yuma, Arizona where they were married by a justice of the peace on March

they converted to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This focus on Christ would serve as a compass for the remainder of their lives. Hawaii claimed Mrs. Van Dusen’s heart as a second home and fostered a love that endured throughout her life. Returning to California, Mrs. Van Dusen and her husband settled in Imperial Beach. A boy was added to the family in 1964 when they adopted their son Samuel. Family get-togethers and July 4th celebrations in Coronado were beloved family traditions. “Janis loved being a mother, wife and friend to all, always caring for someone who was without family close by or needing a place to stay, or just someone to care,” shared her family. “She was that person. She would seek out the poor in spirit and love them unconditionally.” In 1970, the family returned to Kaneohe for a year, followed by subsequent relocations to Seattle and Anacortes, Washington and Juneau, Alaska. With each move came more friends. Finally, in 1979, they returned to California to be closer to family, living for a short time in Rancho Bernardo before settling in Claremont. Two years were spent serving a mission for the church to Andalusia, Alabama. This time was very special to Mrs. Van Dusen, explained the family, as she was able to focus exclusively on loving and serving God’s children. “Mom’s life was always one of recovering from this illness or that illness, yet through it all she never slowed down or let it interfere with life,” recalled her daughter, Lynn Forester. “Probably the most difficult trial she endured was in 1986 when, over the course of a few months, she lost her vision to macular degeneration. This was a constant source of frustration to her, an annoyance. “She was not going to let this stop her either. She would always say, ‘I’m a fighter, I have been all my life, and I

Lilli Singer
musician, bookkeeper, former COURIER office manager
Former Claremont COURIER office manager Lilli Singer died on March 8, 2010 in Winterthur, Switzerland at the age of 96. Born in Berlin on January 10, 1914, Ms. Singer was the daughter of Ludwig Matzdorff, an associate of the Rollenhagen catering business, which remains in Berlin today. Her mother, Therese, died during a flu epidemic in 1918, and her father died of heart disease in 1936. A talented musician, Ms. Singer played the cello during chamber music evenings at the Matzdorff home. Her father, who played the piano, had a notebook in which he recorded the dates of the chamber music evenings, the pieces that were played and the people who played, accompanied by their signatures. Ms. Singer went on to receive a degree in piano performance from the University of Berlin. When the Nazis came to power, she played in the cello section of Berlin’s Juedischer Kulturbund orchestra, which was limited to public rehearsals instead of performances, and once performed as a piano soloist with the orchestra. She also earned her living by teaching Jewish students. Ms. Singer’s father gave her a Steintinuing to play and teach music to make ends meet. Her musical endeavors led to her playing the cello in a film featuring Yiddish singer Moishe Oysher. In the early ‘40s, Ms. Singer married Egon Weinsberg. Their son, Ed, was born in 1944, and she became an American citizen the next year. In 1951, she married Dr. Singer who had also escaped from Berlin. The same year, they moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where Dr. Singer taught music at Louisiana State University. The Singers next moved to Los Angeles where their children, Ernie and Susie, were born. Dr. Singer’s job as a traveling music teacher in the Pomona elementary school system brought the family to Claremont in 1958. In the early ‘60s, Ms. Singer was hired by COURIER owner and publisher Martin Weinberger. She was a valued employee, shared her family, and her experience left her with fond memories. Both Ms. Singer and her husband also taught music in the family home and were active in the Pomona Valley Musicians’ Club. They joined local musicians such as Marjorie Marth and Glen Davenport for chamber music. A sabbatical for Dr. Singer took the family to Switzerland in 1968. During that time, Ms. Singer became an accomplished harpsichordist at the Schola Cantorum in Basel. Upon their return, she went to work for Ralph Pierce Music as a bookkeeper. She and her husband were members of Temple Sholom of Ontario. She was also a member of the Sharon Chapter of Hadassah, remaining a member after she moved to Switzerland. In Switzerland, Ms. Singer was in demand as an accompanist for her fellow musicians, either in performance or as they studied for exams and auditions. She also played for a ballet school until her late 80s. When she began suffering health setbacks, she moved from her apartment to a nursing home and then an assistedcare facility, spending her last 6 days with all 3 of her children who now live in Florida and Israel. Her husband, Gerhard Singer, preceded her in death in 1989. In addition to her 3 children, Ed, Ernie and Susan, Ms. Singer is survived by her 3 grandchildren, Noa, Elana and Daniel and his wife Debra; and by her great-granddaughter, Cayla. Ms. Singer was buried on March 9, 2010 in the Jewish section of the Winterthur Cemetery.

way piano shortly before his death. The piano traveled with her in 1939 when she escaped by boat to America. Forty years later, in 1979, she brought her Steinway back to Europe when she and her second husband, musicologist Gerhard Singer, who played horn in the Kulturbund orchestra, left Claremont to retire in Switzerland. Her brother, Hans, escaped to Capetown, South Africa, where he too would settle in a suburb also called Claremont. After reaching the U.S., Ms. Singer lived in New York City where she made her living as a bookkeeper while con-

The Other Woman

Twain scholar and Pitzer President uncovers hidden stories
Surely it was a misunderstanding. One hundred authentic, hand-written letters authored by Mark Twain? Can these be treasures in the possession of a stamp collector who purchased the entire lot for $100 at a hobby shop only for their postage stamps?
Not possible, thought Laura Skandera Trombley, a graduate student at the time, and now Pitzer College’s president and preeminent Mark Twain scholar. But indeed, it was so, and this “biggest find ever,” said Dr. Trombley, fell into her lap in 1986 through a circuitous string of events and connections, tamping down a solid path on which she has tread a fascinating journey ever since. “I was 26 at the time, and this was very, very exciting,” said Dr. Trombley. The stamp hobbyist was not familiar with the letters’ signatory, “Samuel Langhorne Clemens,” and therefore unaware of the letters’ value—they were later appraised at nearly $500,000. He showed them to a young woman on a bus, prompting her recommendation that he contact her professor at the University of Southern California, an individual who happened to be Dr. Trombley’s dissertation chairperson. Connection thus made, Dr. Trombley examined his treasure trove and, today, remains the only scholar who has studied the original letters. With ever-expanding curiosity and intrigue, she has remained steeped in Twain’s life and work ever since, believing him to be “one of our country’s most compelling figures.” In 1994, she published her first biography: Mark Twain in the Company of Women. “He was a genius,” she said. “He had an unbelievable energy level and intellectual curiosity. He was just always in forward motion and never stopped trying to figure out life. He was a writer of over 50,000 letters and 30 books; he crossed the Atlantic 25 times; and, by the end of his life, he had become first global celebrity. Everyone wanted to know him.” There was a time toward the end of his life in the U.S., Dr. Trombley shared, when letters simply addressed

“Mark Twain” would find him. “Kind of like Santa Claus,” said Dr. Trombley, who has read her favorite Twain book, the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, more than 30 times. Considering the impressive proliferation of the scholarly achievements, administrative and professorial accomplishments, keynote addresses, presentations and panels, radio and television interviews, publications, honors, grants, fellowships and travels that have comprised Dr. Trombley’s life over the last 3 decades—Twainrelated and otherwise—one may easily make comparisons between their highenergy, high-output lives and, she noted, their hair color.

“I think there are some commonalities. We’re both redheads,” she joked. “And, I come from a family where humor is highly valued and practiced by all family members. Certainly, a love of reading was inculcated in me at a very, very young age, and people who know me would describe me as having a fairly high-energy kind of personality.” A passion for reading and an intense stamina are precisely what were called upon for Dr. Trombley to complete her latest Twain book, a project that began almost 2 decades ago and culminated

THE OTHER WOMAN continued from page 11

in a March 2010 publishing of Mark Twain’s Other Woman: The Hidden Story of His Final Years. “It’s embarrassing, embarrassing, that it took such a long time, 16 years in total,” said Dr. Trombley, who wrote most of the book between 5:30 and 6:30 a.m. every day, which, “Trust me,” she said, “is not my favorite time of day to do anything.” Mark Twain’s Other Woman unravels the mysterious last years of Twain’s life, focusing on Isabel Van Kleek Lyon, Twain’s personal secretary who controlled everything in his life, including his finances his schedule, his unmanageable daughters, and even what he ate and wore everyday. He was utterly dependent on Isabel: physically, intellectually and emotionally. “She was slavishly devoted to Twain,” Dr. Trombley wrote in the preface. “And then,” the preface continues in the next paragraph, “something happened that led to a dramatic breakup.” Dr. Trombley’s book is an exploration of this intimate relationship that turned ugly, so much so that Twain devoted the final chapter of his life to viciously and publicly disparaging Isabel and obsessively committing his vitriolic rants to paper for hours every day, penning hateful terms for his once-constant companion such as, “a liar, a forger, a thief, a hypocrite, a drunkard, a sneak, a humbug, a traitor, a conspirator, a filthy-minded and salacious slut pining for seduction.” Despite the vital role played by Isabel in Twain’s last 6 years, until Dr. Trombley delved into her meticulous daily journals and private papers, even meeting with Isabel’s family who gave her material unseen by researchers, most biographers omitted her. “[They] either knew that the family was very opposed to any mention of Isabel, or they ignored her due to her working class status and gender,” said Dr. Trombley in a Q&A with Amazon.com. “Also, Twain wrote a scandalous fictionalized document about her

that some biographers have mistakenly taken for truth.” Dr. Trombley asserts that the carefully constructed story Twain created was a grandiose attempt to preserve his legacy. “This is a story that Twain never, ever wanted to be told, and he spent considerable time and effort constructing a fiction so that no one would ever know what actually happened in that time,” she said. The only Twain scholar to have ever read all of Isabel’s writings, Dr. Trombley has discovered the truth of that short but dynamic era, “putting together a mosaic, bit by bit by bit by bit,” she said. And, in doing so, she has provided the first-ever intricate rendering of the mystery woman so central to Twain yet so overlooked and forgotten. “I think what this book represents first is how important it is for people, particularly women, to have their voices heard,” she said. “It’s a story about a woman who was silent for 100 years, and this is the first time for her to really speak and tell her side of the story.” With 16 years of research into never-before-read materials, Dr. Trombley brings forth a deeper understanding of Twain, an entirely different portrayal of this revered figure than previously proffered. Addi-

tionally, and what Dr. Trombley hopes readers will take away, is the re-humanizing of a Mark Twain who had become singularly-focused on cultivating and controlling future depictions of his life. “He was so obsessed with creating his legacy, he almost transformed himself into a kind of white marble statue, and people lost that sense of him as a human being,” she said. “I think we love his writing because it’s so utterly descriptive of humanity and, this, in a way, helps return him to the fold.”
—Brenda Bolinger

Upcoming booksigning: On Saturday, April 24, Dr. Trombley will participate in the Los Angeles Times Festival of books, staffing the Pepperdine University Alumni Author Booth at 10 a.m. and serving on a panel discussion, “Biography: Literary Masters,” at 1:30 p.m.

Yet the road to the Area 1B Boys U10 Select championship was tougher for Claremont United Maxson. Earning the final 6th spot in the Area 1B playoffs by the number of

goals scored during the season, Claremont United Maxson made the most of its opportunity in defeating Phillips Ranch (5-1) and besting Hacienda Heights (2-1) to qualify for the title match. “It was really exciting,” said Claremont United Maxson head coach Josh Maxson. “We got into the playoffs by a 2-goal margin and we made it all the way to the championship. It was really cool because nobody expected us to get there. We were just hoping to get to the finals and when we did, everybody was really excited about it.”

Spring cleaning
by Debbie Carini

W

hen our lilies are popping open, and our chickens are still pecking around the yard, long after dinner, it can only mean one thing—it’s spring! And even though I live in a year-round, mild-weather climate, I still have the easterner’s habit of shaking off the dark months and welcoming the longer, warmer hours of sunshine with a big clean-up.
The first spring ritual is changing over my clothes—so away go the long sleeves and out come the garments I am most afraid of: the sleeveless tops, the shorts and, worst of all, the bathing suits. There’s a sense of anticipation—somewhat akin to being a contestant on Let’s Make a Deal: “will what’s inside Box #1 still fit this year or will Debbie be going on an all-expense paid trip to the gym?” I start to hope that I’ll open the box and inside will be the keys to a “brand new car!!” Around the house there are lingering signs of winter—a drooping, nearly leafless poinsettia; a basket, decorated with Christmas trees holding gold-spray-painted pine cones. It’s time to relegate those to the basement, dust-off the patio and scythe through the jungle of spider webs that have spun-up

like a curtain around the plastic table and chairs. The barbecutioner, my husband (a funny name we thought of for him, because he thinks the meat isn’t done on the barbeque until it’s blackened and fairly ready to be utilized by a cobbler), starts scrapping the grill and flexing his muscles with the requisite tools—the big tongs, the giant spatula. When I watch him working on the grill with his well-worn metal brush, I think I understand the nomenclature of the term “weekend warrior.” He is ready to do battle with some serious build-up. Spring cleaning also means moving packages of seeds off of the back counter and into little pots in the yard. “Good luck little Hillbilly Potato Leaf tomato, Giant Belgian Pink tomato, Lemon Boy tomato,” I think as I place the tiny seeds in the soil. Next I turn to the food closets—okay, no one

drank the egg nogflavored instant breakfast. And then there are the things that no one is ever going to eat: all the little jars that came in the holiday basket someone sent us—especially mincemeat (we’re all too afraid to even Google it!). As I’m working away, I think, maybe I should turn on the ceiling fan, but I’m afraid I’ll create a dust storm, and the windows, well, they have enough fingerprints to keep the FBI busy for a week. Briefly, the thought of moving almost seems easier than continuing with my chores. But when I find an old TV remote deep inside the couch, I feel vaguely rewarded for my efforts. The cure for spring cleaning fever is simple: take a lot of elbow grease, apply soap and water, (maybe even chemicals from some scary EPA list) and enjoy the results … at least until the family gets home!
