Ruth Bobo connected with so many who grew up in Claremont
When I first heard we were going to interview Ruth Bobo for a story in today’s edition about efforts to raise money for her healthcare costs, I jumped at the chance to see her again. During my illustrious career at Claremont High School from 1970 to 1974, I was a student of Mrs. Bobo’s on 2 separate occasions. I vividly remember my senior year, when she gently pushed and creatively motivated me into learning the nuances of the English language. It was critical for my development, since I was off to college the next year and really needed to hone my writing skills. Even though I would later have a career as a professional photographer, this is when I first started writing columns for the school newspaper. Based on what you are reading here today, I like to think she was successful. I clearly remember the skills Mrs. Bobo used to connect with students. It’s like she instantly knew what made you tick. She recognized my skills as a photographer, yet kept emphasizing how journalism needed to be an important skill set, too. I was also a gregarious gent, who liked to chitchat with the girls. I remember being moved around the classroom several times so she could keep a keen eye on me (and shut me up). There are hundreds of examples like mine, where Mrs. Bobo contributed to the development of young adults for 4 decades. She gave so much of herself. But on top of these fond memories, the healthcare issues Mrs. Bobo faces in 2012 also touch a very sensitive and important area for my family. As I’ve stated in previous columns, my parents went through a

very similar issue where the costs of healthcare were like quicksand—draining entire life savings just to stay healthy and maintain some sort of quality of life. This has influenced the way I view the world, and how I vote, and is motivation to help others who lost jobs, which basically means losing healthcare insurance. Mrs. Bobo is really lucky she has an advocate in Arin Allen. He and the Bobo family have made it their personal goal to make sure Mrs. Bobo will continue to have a quality life, no matter what healthcare hurdles are placed in front of her. It won’t be easy, but in this day, anything is possible. It’s also a classic case how one person can make a huge impact on the lives of others. With all the people in Claremont and beyond who know and love Mrs. Bobo, I have a feeling the future will be bright for her and her family. As I left Mrs. Bobo’s house after our interview, she turned and said how she enjoyed my writing in the newspaper. I got chills as if it were 1974 again, where my English teacher just complimented my work. I will always remember Ruth Bobo.

Claremont to make water offer, with or without Golden State’s blessing

T

he Claremont City Council has directed staff to make an offer to Golden State Water Company for the purchase of its water system. City Attorney Sonia Carvalho made the announcement Tuesday night after more than 2 hours of closed session deliberation. Councilmember Sam Pedroza made the motion with a second by councilmember Joe Lyons and unanimous approval by the council. “The city’s negotiator has been directed to make an offer not less than the fair market value as determined by the appraisal determined by the city council,” said Ms. Carvalho. Ms. Carvalho declined to state exactly how much the city will offer the water company as an official proposal has not yet been drafted, but assured that a copy will be made available to the public and mailed out to residents. “We still need to develop the formal offer,” Ms. Carvalho said, adding that the acquisition lawyers need to comply with specific government codes in compiling the offer. The COURIER requested a copy of the Water Acquisition Feasibility Study reviewed at Tuesday evening’s closed meeting, but the request was denied. City Clerk Lynne Fryman said the decision to withhold the document was based on the Public Records Act, which exempts the city from disclosing information on real estate appraisals or feasibility estimates relating to an acquisition until the real estate is obtained. Tuesday’s announcement brings to realization phase one of Claremont’s potential purchase of the water system. The journey began last January when the city council designated $250,000 of general reserve funds to explore the possibility of purchasing the city’s water system. In June, the council directed a consulting team to conduct a feasibility study determining the financial impacts the acquisition would have on the city. Residents were pleased with the decision. “The League is very supportive of the purchase of the water company,” said Ellen Taylor, representing the local

chapter of the League of Women Voters. “We feel the water company should have been bought by the city a long time ago.” Despite Claremont’s decision, Golden State representatives maintain that the company is not interested in selling. “The city’s decision last night indicates that they are intending to use eminent domain to force a takeover of the system, which in effect would obCITY ligate residents to potentially hundreds COUNCIL of millions in water taxes and, from our perspective, a lower level of service,” said Golden State Water spokesperson Mitch Zak. If acquisition of the water system must be done by eminent domain, Claremont officials have made it known that they are willing to go in that direction. Council adds voice to election issues As election day approaches, the Claremont City Council is getting involved in endorsements. The council has lent its support to Proposition 30—a sales tax initiative to fund California’s public schools—and opposition to Measure J, which would extend the sales tax for public transit until 2069. A resolution for both positions was passed with a 3-0 vote by Mayor Larry Schroeder and Councilmembers Sam Pedroza and Joe Lyons. Proposition 30, proposed by Governor Jerry Brown, states it will generate $6 billion through a quarter-cent sales tax increase and a one-to-3 percent increase in personal income tax to those who make $250,000 or more. The money will allegedly be used to fund K-12, community colleges and CSU/UC schools as well as public safety services, which will directly affect Claremont, according to several residents in support. Measure J extends Measure R, passed in 2008, helping to finance new transportation. While Measure R claimed it would fund the Gold Line through Claremont, members of the Metrolink Transportation Authority now state that is not the case. Measure J leaves Claremont out of the Gold Line funding altogether.

Mr. Pedroza emphasized his opposition to Measure J. “I strongly believe we need to take a position. Claremont is specifically not listed in a funding measure that all Claremont people are going to be paying for,” Mr. Pedroza said. Councilmembers Opanyi Nasiali and Corey Calaycay abstained, a stance Mr. Calaycay says he has taken on endorsing election issues since his days working for the state legislature. “It was very clear that we could not take a position on any initiative on behalf of a legislator even if that legislator, on his own time, was taking a position,” Mr. Calaycay said. “I draw a very firm line as an elected official after that experience by not involving our city in any way in endorsing an election issue.” Many in the audience agreed with Mr. Calaycay, calling for the council to remain impartial on election issues. “City government affects all the residents of the city and that’s the reason the council is a nonpartisan body,” said Claremont resident Carolyn Gonzales. “This should not even be on the agenda,” added Joseph O’Toole. However, Mr. Pedroza noted that the resolutions were brought before the council at the request of several Claremont residents. Mr. Pedroza felt at least discussing the issue was part of his duty as a council member. “I see myself as a representative of the folks that elected me,” he said. The council has a constitutional responsibility to address issues brought up by the public that elected them, added Mr. Lyons, referring to the city’s best practice that “the city council will refrain from taking a policy stance on all matters clearly unrelated to the local jurisdiction.” “The word ‘clearly unrelated’ is something that is going to have its fuzzy edges, going to have its moments of difficulty to discern, but that is precisely why the public in Claremont has elected us. We have a responsibility to look this over.” —Beth Hartnett

POLICE BLOTTER
Wednesday, October 17 A strange package sent to Prudential Wheeler/Steffen Real Estate, Inc., at 500 W. Foothill, contained an equally strange surprise. Not recognizing the name printed on the package, the business held onto the parcel for a couple months in hopes that someone would come and claim it, according to Lieutenant Shelly Vander Veen. When nobody ever did, the package was opened. It contained a vacuum-sealed bag of marijuana and a package of jelly fruit snacks. The contents were turned over to the police. Thursday, October 18 A Claremont resident in the 400 block of Forsyth Place returned home from vacation Thursday to find the house ransacked. A burglar had forced entry through the master bedroom window and taken miscellaneous jewelry items. The total loss was unknown as of press time. Friday, October 19 A thief with a thing for hair products broke into a car in the 700 block of Pomello Drive and took more than $3000 worth of hair products and styling tools. There are no suspects at this time. Saturday, October 20 A black cat owned by a resident in the 4000 block of Tenango Drive was targeted in an act of apparent animal cruelty. Jack the cat was found shot in the hind leg by what police say was a pellet gun. Though Jack is now recuperating, there are no leads in the case. Monday, October 22 The belief that the third time’s the charm did not exactly ring true for a woman scamming businesses in a complex off Foothill and Claremont Boulevards Monday afternoon. The female entered Blue Fin Sushi & Teriyaki and purchased a drink with a $20. After purchasing the beverage, she decided she no longer wanted the drink and requested her money back. The cashier gave her the $20 back, which she placed in her bra, and when the cashier wasn’t looking she took out a $1 bill and claimed she was given the wrong change, according to Lt. Vander Veen. The cashier replaced the dollar bill with another $20. The woman tried the same scam at Fruizen Desserts next door and, after being successful a second time, decided to try her luck once more at the AM/PM across the way. The scam didn’t work and the woman fled the convenience store on foot before she could be caught. She is described as black with long black wavy hair, 30-40 years old, about 5 feet,

Smash and grab burglars focus on property in cars
Claremont burglars have turned their attention from homes to cars, in a bout of “smash and grab” burglaries sweeping the city. More than 15 car burglaries were reported between Friday, October 18 and Tuesday, October 23. In all cases, a burglar smashed a car window to reach inside and steal property found within. Streets where burglaries weighing 220 pounds and wearing a rainbow-colored top. Police are investigating AM/PM’s surveillance footage. **** Damon Robinson, 24, found himself behind bars Tuesday night all because of $2 stolen out of a tip jar at a Jamba Juice. Police caught up with the Los Angeles resident down the street from the Indian Hill juice shop and he admitted to stealing the money, according to Lt. Vander Veen. Though Jamba Juice did not wish to prosecute, Mr. Robinson had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court for a vehicle code violation and was arrested. **** A nap on the sidewalk off Eighth Street and Indian Hill was short-lived for a 17-year-old male found by Claremont police. The teenager was found to be under the influence of alcohol, unable to took place include Amherst, Chattanooga, Hobart Drive, Lancaster Court, Lynoak, Mansfield, Pomello, San Jose, Sebastopol and Stanislaus Circle. Thousands of dollars in stolen loot included cash, laptops, wallets, tools, a digital projector, a printer and a fanny pack.

sit up on his own, and arrested. He was cited and released to his parents. It wasn’t the only unusual find for the police that evening. Not far away, another man was found standing in the intersection of Foothill and Mills. Brandon Duran, 28, of Pasadena, was also arrested for public intoxication. Tuesday, October 23 A vehicle vs. bicycle accident near Foothill Boulevard and Towne Avenue revealed an unusual case of drunk driving. The bike and the car collided in the Stater Bros. parking lot—the car was turning right onto Foothill as the bicyclist approached the car going east. The bicyclist, who was sent to the hospital with complaints of pain, was found to be the one under the influence of alcohol.

COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger Arin Allen is spearheading the Save Mrs. Bobo! campaign, which aims to raise $72,000 for Ruth Boboʼs healthcare expenses.

Friends unite to help beloved Claremont teacher Ruth Bobo

T

here is nothing common about Ruth Bobo, who touched countless lives during her nearly 4 decades as a Claremont High School English and creative writing teacher. With her Alabama accent, her passion for literature and her warm and humorous engagement with students, she remains a Claremont icon 7 years after her retirement.

Unfortunately, Mrs. Bobo, 75, is facing a problem that is increasingly common among seniors. With mounting heath concerns, including rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, gastro-intestinal difficulties and vision loss, she now requires 24-hour in-home care. This expense of $4800 per month not covered by Medicare, has been draining and exceeding her monthly income for some time. A few years ago, Mrs. Bobo took out a home equity loan to help offset the cost, but that amount is nearly depleted. “It stood me in good stead for a year,” she said. “Then I started to realize I was going to be in serious trouble.” Facing the very real possibility that she’d have to trade her Tenth Street house for a nursing home, Mrs. Bobo—who has always been known for her independence—did something she isn’t used to. She asked for help, reaching out to see if friends had any ideas as to how she can stay in the home she has lived in for 40 years. One of these, Arin Allen, a class of ’92 CHS alumni,

has responded by organizing a campaign he hopes will mobilize the community. The goal is to raise $72,000, an amount that would offset 25 percent of the monthly cost of Mrs. Bobo’s 24-hour care and medication for 5 years, allowing her to remain in her home through her 80th birthday. Between her arthritis and Parkinson’s, Mrs. Bobo is unable to write and faces serious mobility issues, so “the thought of moving is horrendous,” she said. Mr. Allen, a Pitzer College graduate who is nothing if not ambitious, would love to go beyond his $72,000 goal. He plans to use any additional money raised to establish a special fund in Mrs. Bobo’s name. He envisions the fund, overseen with the help of a nonprofit organization like the Claremont Community Foundation, allowing each graduating CHS class to contribute a grant to the charitable foundation of their choice. Ready, set, go! This weekend represents the official launch of the Save Mrs. Bobo! campaign. Flyers have been posted in the windows of more than 30 Claremont businesses. This weekend, campaign volunteers, including members of Mrs. Bobo’s family and several former students, will rove through the crowds at Village Venture in Save Mrs. Bobo! T-shirts, handing out refrigerator magnets. The goal of the publicity blitz is to direct as many people as possible to a website Mr. Allen has created, www.ruthmbobofund.com, where visitors can contribute to the Ruth M. Bobo Fund and learn more about ways they can help the former teacher. Contributions of any size can make a difference¸ emphasized Mr. Allen, who has previously volunteered with Claremont nonprofits such as the 1st Street Art Gallery and the American Red Cross. He urges everyone who

knows and loves Mrs. Bobo to help spread the word. When Mr. Allen and other volunteers recently approached the managers and owners of local businesses asking for support, they noticed a phenomenon underscoring Mrs. Bobo’s immense popularity. In many cases, customers, overhearing the conversation, have exclaimed, “I love Mrs. Bobo! I had her as a teacher while I was at Claremont High School.” Just how many people did Mrs. Bobo inspire during her 38-year tenure at CHS? Even COURIER publisher Peter Weinberger (class of 1974), a student of hers at CHS, shot photos and wrote a column for this edition. “I remember Ruth as a kind person who really cared for her students,” Mr. Weinberger recounted in a 2008 COURIER feature on Mrs. Bobo. “She had a specific game plan on what we were going to accomplish and expected a lot. But she would help you get there. She was very popular.” And when this reporter mentioned this article in passing to a friend, a fellow Pomona resident, she answered with what the campaign is revealing to be a universal refrain, “I love Mrs. Bobo!” “She was always straightforward and honest,” said Teresa Garcia, a graduate of the Claremont High School class of 1993. She treated her students with total respect that was earned.” A touch of fate Mr. Allen, an emergency medical technician and phlebotomy technician who works at UCLA Medical Center, has earned Mrs. Bobo’s respect for the many hours spent in developing the Save Mrs. Bobo! campaign. “It’s touching,” she said. “Being this exposed is not

Claremont police reinstate K-9 program

A

new canine will be coming to the aid of Claremont police in the coming months with the city council’s unanimous approval to reinstate the police department’s K-9 program.
The police will welcome a new narcotics-trained police pooch 12 years after Claremont’s original K-9 program came to an end. The city’s K-9 unit previously operated between 1989 and

1998 with 2 German Shepherd patrol dogs named Mollog and Dusty. The program came to an end after a patrol dog bit a child while its handler was visiting a friend off-duty. In the wake of police department cuts, officers are looking to bring the program back. “With reductions in the staffing department, the addition of a canine will enhance the level of service we provide to the community,” said Chief of Police Paul Cooper. The program would begin with a single-purpose dog trained to detect nar-

cotics. The Labrador will be assigned to the DARE/School Resource Officer Sean Evans. The goal of the program is not to arrest students, but to make students think twice before bringing drugs on campus, Chief Cooper continued. “I don’t want to give the impression that drugs are out of control at our schools, that’s not our reasoning in this assignment,” Chief Cooper said. “Recent surveys though from the National Institute of Drug Abuse show an increase in drug use by our young people in general.” For the last 10 years, the Claremont

Unified School District has used a private contractor for unannounced canine searches on school sites. Now the Claremont police will have its own. The council approved the use of $55,000 for the purchase of the dog and a 2013 Ford police vehicle, replacing one that was recently damaged by a drunk driver. Ongoing annual costs to cover monthly training, food and veterinary costs plus overtime expenses are estimated at about $10,500.

Democratic Club reviews perspectives on healthcare
Deborah Freund, president of Claremont Graduate University, is the featured speaker at the Democratic Club of Claremont’s monthly meeting on Monday, October 29 at 7 p.m. Dr. Fruend will discuss “Perspectives on Health Care.” In addition to her position with CGU, Dr. Fruend currently serves on the boards of Cedars-Sinai Health System and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. She was recently appointed as an expect advisor to the “Let’s Get Healthy California” Task Force. Dr. Freund is an internationally-known health economist and outcomes researcher. She holds a PhD from the University of Michigan in economics, an MA in applied economics and MPH in medical care administration from the same institution. She received her bachelor’s degree in classics from Washington University in St. Louis. Prior to her presidency at CGU, she daughter, Elizabeth Bobo, who helped compile the text for the website, including a vivid biography of the former CHS teacher. The walls of the home are adorned with precious family photos, including pictures of her son Brian Bobo posing with the Wolfpack football team and a shot of herself as an attractive teenager, wielding a baton as a high school majorette back in her native Alabama. Despite her recent vision troubles, the printed word also remains a beloved companion. There are bookshelves crammed with classics—Madame Bovary, Nicholas Nicholby and works by poets like her beloved favorite, e.e. cummings. Family members will read books aloud to her, with recent reads including Frankenstein and Heart of Darkness. “Anybody that walks in the door has to read to me,” Mrs. Bobo said with a smile. Mrs. Bobo also loves to read cards, Mr. Allen notes. He believes that expressions of care are as much a part of sustaining his mentor as financial help. As such, he encourages supporters to drop Mrs. Bobo a line or even send her flowers. Hint: her favorite posies are lilies, especially stargazer lilies, peach roses and carnations. You can send written warm wishes to Mrs. Bobo, as well as contributions in the form of a check or money order made out to Ruth Bobo, care of the Ruth M.

my style, but it beats having to move.” As the campaign gains momentum, it feels like a bit of kismet is in play, Mrs. Bobo said. A few years ago, Mr. Allen wrote to Mrs. Bobo at Christmastime, sending her several of his poems and thanking her for the profound influence she had on him in her creative writing course. Mr. Allen didn’t include a telephone number and, while there was an address, she didn’t respond to him. “I thought, I can’t take up with another person,” she said. The following March, she came across the envelope with Mr. Allen’s address on it. She tossed it in the trash but then, the next day, something prompted her to retrieve it. “I thought, no, I don’t want to do that,” Mrs. Bobo recalled. She had someone drive her to the address listed and, somewhat surprisingly, considering that Mr. Allen travels quite a bit, found him at home. They caught up and began visiting and eventually Mrs. Bobo confided to her former student about her financial and medical difficulties. He sprang into action and the rest is history. “I really feel like this whole issue is fated,” she said. Explaining what prompted him to help his favorite high school teacher, Mr. Allen spoke with passion. “There are certain people in our lives who we can’t refuse. When you have a mentor, an elder who’s invested in you, you can’t say no. Your heart wouldn’t let you.” Mrs. Bobo’s heart is evident in the home where, for now, she remains comfortably and regularly surrounded by conscientious medical caregivers and family like her niece Susanne Hyvarinen, who serves as the family liaison for the Save Mrs. Bobo! campaign, and her

Taking a break with an art workshop
by Jan Wheatcroft Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans. —John Lennon hat could I do in the summer to get away and to learn something new at the same time and maybe find time to relax as well?” I wanted it all and, when I saw in a catalog that my printing teacher was coming to Idyllwild to teach for a week, and I thought, here it is, I can have it all. So I booked a place in the course for a week of Monotype printmaking and, at the same time, booked a small cabin with cooking facilities to minimize the cost of eating out for every meal. Luckily, the cost of the class included a cafeteria meal at noon. Monotype printmaking is a process of making one print that cannot be replicated; it exists as a single item. We were 8 students working with 2 printing presses. The inks were soya based and could be easily cleaned up with water, yet the colors were as rich as the oil-based inks. I have studied with Ron Pokrasso many times, going as far as Santa Fe, New Mexico to take a class. He is an excellent teacher, and I admire his work. It is important for me to like the work of the person who is teaching me the techniques as well as how he teaches. The format of the class was to get familiar with the materials (inks, tools, plates, paper), and to know how to run the presses. We would work on our own creating our prints and then there would be breaks while we came together to learn a new

“W

specific technique or see examples of prints that Ron or his past students had made. As we finished a print, we hung it with clothes pins from ropes around the edges of the room. I had taken this class numerous times, so I was familiar with the routine and the materials, but for some reason I found it difficult to begin and became very frustrated. This on the first day. Ron started us off with some thoughts. As we worked, it was like having a conversation with the piece. The piece will talk back to you and you must be ready to respond. You must give up what you think is most important and let the piece guide you. Okay, so I worked inking my plate (a piece of plexiglass, which served as the base to create the artwork for the print-to-be) with a roller to spread out the ink and tried to relate to what colors and marks I was making. I even ran one attempt through the press. It said “ugly” to me. Ron says that you must take a risk, stepping into a place that is unknown, and you may fail. Then you pick yourself up and move forward. I had failed and so I had to continue to move forward. I began reworking the plate after I had cleaned all the ink off. Ron’s words were to be present emotionally, physically and spiritually, and to be open to the process as it is the process that is more important than the product. So I immersed myself in the process of mixing and rolling ink out on my working surface, rolling out colors onto my plate, and making marks into the inks, but when I printed out on paper from my plate, howver, all that I saw were stiff strips of color fighting each other in an unpleasing way. Again, I cleaned my plate and just went home and hoped for a better start the next day. That night, I could see in my mind all the terrific prints I was making and planning but not actually producing. Obviously, I was more attached to the product than the process. It has been said that if the final result were known in advance, the journey would be boring. I was connecting to the product in my fantasies. Picasso once asked: If you knew what the result would be, what’s the point of doing it? The following morning I had new resolve to push on and enjoy the process, but it is difficult

to clear out all those lovely prints hanging around in my head. I am not sure just when things began to change, the second or the third day, perhaps, but I kept on inking, rolling, marking and printing. I reworked old plates from a previous print (the ghost) and finally began to feel and see something begin to happen. Hanging up my prints was very depressing at first, as I did not like what I had produced. I think things began to change when I started cutting out stencils from heavy paper of various birds. I began inking them and adding them to the plate along with collage pieces of the ink splatters I had made on my work surface which I just tore up and added. I was able to complete a small series of bird prints I could use in the final critique. Ron had said, “show your vulnerability, take risks, play. That is the level where things start happening.” It was hard to stick with this process and not give up and run away, but I do love the act of printing. At the beginning, it was about getting the process going, and mine was really stuck for quite a while. It was necessary to stretch myself in solving all the problems that came up. Our class was small and very harmonious. We were 6 women and 2 men, which was a nice cohesive group. Everyone was very helpful and willing to share materials and ideas. We could stay as long as we wanted or needed to in the studio to work after the class time was finished for the day. Students from other classes wandered in to watch us work. There was an easygoing atmosphere at the center. I met some friends for a few dinner meals, so there was a bit of a social life. My car was broken into in the parking lot of my motel and my old radio was stolen. It was like the loss of an old friend. There was an art exhibit and lecture by 3 of the art teachers one evening. Idyllwild has a wide variety of classes on offer for its summer session. This was my third or fourth year working there. I would do it again. This year, for some reason, was the most difficult but I stuck with it and got through it and still would do it again. It is a commitment and it is expensive but it’s worth it. I struggled but got through the rough parts. I was in an artistic space, working with people of all ages with a desire to express themselves through the artistic process. All this and I was away from my “regular life” for a bit and, although it was a good week, it was not a relaxing one for me. My prints can be seen and enjoyed on Sunday, November 4 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Claremont Museum of Art’s Art Fiesta to be held at the Padua Hills Theater. There will be many artists with their art, happy to share their work and creative experience. I will also be demonstrating my tapestry weaving.

Dear Michael Valentine (Part II)

Dear Editor: Back in January 2009, I wrote to you in the COURIER for a second time. I disagreed with your stated conclusions but more importantly with the abrasive style and almost violent tone in your writing. For that reason, I ended my letter, “May your days and dreams be more peace-filled.” Now I believe that conclusion reflected an unacceptable smugness on my part. I say this because I am so moved by your letter to the editor published October 24, favoring capital punishment. While I hold the contrary position, your argument is not only well-reasoned but admirably civil (and almost gentle in tone.) As constantly demonstrated in this heavily political moment, I experience your presentation as a refreshing and positive model for public discourse. I renew my previous invitation to have coffee together. I, too, have lost a young son, and very recently my beloved wife of 50 years. Perhaps we have much to learn together. I’m curious as to some of your beliefs. For instance, how do you view the Occupy Movement in Claremont? And do you favor our country shifting to a parliamentary form of governing? Thanks for writing. Jim Lamb

Dear Editor: At age 83, you’d think I would be immune to shock over dishonest campaign claims. But the deceptive statements in point of view in an October issue of the Daily Bulletin made by County District Attorney Michael Ramus chilled my old bones! For one, he distorted the reason Prop 34 is (rightly) called SAFE. He cited the numbers and kinds of persons who are on death row as a scare tactic. He knows that the real reason for naming Prop 34 SAFE was about the $30 million for 3 years that will be used to hunt down the 46 percent of murders that are unsolved and the 56 percent of unsolved rape cases. Which is scarier: a prisoner under guard for the rest of his or her life (life without the possibility of parole) or those murderers and rapists still roaming our streets? And he neglected to mention that the rest of the $130 million savings made by replacing the death penalty with life without possibility of parole can go toward schools and other important state-supported institutions in our overburdened budget.

District Attorney Ramos represents those who oppose Prop 34. On their website, it emphasizes the serial kiillers, cop-killers, child-killers and those who kill the elderly who will “escape justice.” It intimates that when our state halted the death penalty before, prisoners were released to rape and kill again. More scare tactics! The truth is that in 1972 when the US Supreme Court decided that the death penalty was unconstitutional, we didn’t even have life without possibility of parole. So, all that ado is about nothing— nothing that is true.With yes on Prop 34, prisoners will be required to work and make restitution to victims’ families but there will not be a chance for parole. Let’s keep the facts straight. Let’s vote yes on Prop 34. Let’s join the rest of the civilized world and eliminate this barbaric practice of killing to show that killing is wrong, and in the changeover, let’s save $130 million a year.

Candidate questions incumbant

Dear Editor: Over the past couple weeks, I have emphasized the contradictory nature of Carol Liu’s support for tax increases while having had a $10 million tax shelter in the Cayman Islands. In op-eds, I vehemently asked why she did not disclose this information on her public reporting documents as required by law. Senator Liu has remained silent on this issue. Why? I trust voters will decide how important this matter of non-disclo-

sure is when they cast their ballots on November 6. This tax issue alone does not disqualify Senator Liu from being an effective public servant for the 25th district. However, it is crucial we engage voters during these difficult economic times, which makes me wonder why Senator Liu refuses to attend forums and debates. As constituents, we all need to discuss the responsibilities of public servants and how our individual vision will improve the state. Senator Liu has a record to explain and her complete refusal to participate in public forums and debates is disappointing. If she won’t take part in these discussions, how can voters know how her policies will affect the 25th district? As leaders, our duty is to serve you and represent your interests. I will take on real education reform, create jobs and implement policies that support a stronger economy. I have a plan to get you and your neighbors back to work and I pledge to ensure government is accountable with your hard-earned tax dollars. I ask you not to be silent on Election Day. Your vote is your voice.

Barbara Sloat Deer
Barbara Sloat Deer died quickly and gently, surrounded by family, at Pilgrim Place in Claremont on October 4, 2012 of acute leukemia. She was 78. She was born Barbara Marie Sloat on December 20, 1933 in Rahway, New Jersey and grew up in Cranford, New Jersey. Her father, Francis Emmet Sloat, was an executive with the Bell Telephone Company and her mother, Marie Dolores Conill Sloat, was an artist and homemaker. From the time Ms. Deer was a little girl, she wanted to be a nurse. Her older brother, the Reverend John Sloat, remembers how she would line her dolls up on her bed and set up a clinic in which she cared for them all. She was an affectionate child who, early on, developed a strong Christian faith. When she learned about medical missions, she decided she wanted to become a missionary wife and nurse. Ms. Deer received a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Keuka College in Keuka Park, New York in 1955 and days later married her husband Donald Deer, who had just graduated from seminary. Dr. Deer had been her brother’s fraternity big brother at Denison University in Granville, Ohio. Together they set off on the adventure of their lives. After a requisite year in Belgium, studying French and the colonial school system, they traveled to what was then the Belgian Congo to work as American Baptist missionaries. Circumstances ended up keeping Ms. Deer from nursing itself, but she taught nursing and anatomy in the Congo. After having her first daughter in 1957 and another in 1961, she concentrated on motherhood as well as on helping her husband with his work. Ms. Deer proved to be gifted in many fields. She proofread and edited everything Dr. Deer ever wrote or worked on, including the translation of the New Testament into Kituba, from 1962 to 1972, and the doctoral dissertation he completed in 1973 when the translation was finished. In their early years in the Congo, the family lived in a cement house with a metal roof, a precious but finicky kerosene-powered refrigerator and no air conditioning. The Deers’ older daughter, Ruthy DeHolton, shared that “porches and shade and

whenever the neighbors were away she also started the generator nightly, revving it by hand with a long pullstring to give the family electricity for a few hours. The time when the house was powered up, from 6 to 10 p.m. each evening, was special because it meant the Deer family could listen to their extensive record collection, which included many classical selections. Ms. Deer had her own music collection, a mental storehouse of songs, mainly pop tunes of the ‘40s and ‘50s, which she delighted in singing to her daughters. The family also enjoyed singing hymns, harmonizing between Dr. Deer’s bass, Ms. Deer’s alto, Ruthy’s tenor and Marie’s soprano. When the family visited the central prison in Kinshasa where Dr. Deer periodically preached, the girls would sing the melody together and Dr. Deer would take over the tenor part on the cello. The life of a missionary family is a social one, and the Deers entertained countless visitors over the years. Ms. Deer was quite shy, family shared, but she was a gracious hostess whenever occasion demanded and displayed an outrageous sense of humor with her daughters. The Deers’ missionary years coincided with a tumultuous time in the history of the Congo. Belgian colonial rule had often been oppressive, especially in the early 1900s when King Leopold II was in power. Long-smoldering nationalist sentiments came to a head in 1959 and on June 30, 1960, Belgium granted the Congo its independence. Within a week, however, soldiers mutinied against their officers, who were still all white Belgians, because it appeared as though nothing had changed within the structure of the army. Days later, the mineral-rich province of Katanga declared its independence and the country became engulfed in civil war. In the wake of the unrest, the US State Department ordered the evacuation of American missionaries from the Congo. The Deers were evacuated from the interior via helicopter with other missionaries and flew to the United States, taking with them only a suitcase, Dr. Deer’s cello and their 2 ½ year old daughter Ruthy. They stayed a year, during which time Ms. Deer gave birth to Marie. They returned to the Republic of Congo when the baby was 3 months old, resuming their missionary work. Violence erupted again in 1964 when a Congolese faction known as Simba re-

belled against the government. This time, the men stayed behind at their respective mission stations while the women and children were sent to the capital for several weeks. Ms. DeHolton, then 6, recalls that time, which they spent crowded into a single building with a number of missionary families, well. She was frightened enough by the rumors of missionaries being killed to have nightmares, but it was an adventure to play with American kids her age and attend school for the first time. After they left the Congo, Ms. Deer worked for a few months as a mailroom supervisor at the American Baptist Seminary of the West in Berkeley and then for a few years as the administrative assistant of the alumni affairs office of Virginia Union University in Richmond, Virginia. She was very happy in her work there. She spent the last 15 years of her life at Pilgrim Place in Claremont, where she volunteered each year with the Pilgrim Festival and lent her editing skills to the resident directory. Ms. Deer found many friends, a few of whom were old acquaintances, other retired missionaries she knew from her time in the Congo. Ms. Deer spoke English, French, Kituba and Kikongo, typed and proofread New Testament Greek, knew a little German, and had begun to revive her high school Spanish at the time that she died. She appeared in the 1965 volume of Outstanding Young Women of America and received an Alumnae Citation from Keuka College in 1982. The memory of Ms. Deer will serve as an inspiration to family and friends for years to come, according to her brother. “Barbara had an extraordinarily loving nature and a deep faith in God,” Rev. Sloat said. Ms. Deer’s younger daughter, Marie Deer, added, “She was a faithful friend; an amazing, funny, and unpredictable mother; and the most devoted wife any of us have ever seen.” Ms. Deer leaves behind her husband of 57 years, Donald Deer. She is also survived by 2 daughters, Ruthy DeHolton and Marie Deer; by 4 grandchildren, a son-inlaw and her brother John Sloat; and by many nieces and nephews. She was a member of the First Baptist Church of Rochester, New York. A memorial service for Ms. Deer will be held Saturday, November 17 at 3:30 p.m. in Pilgrim Place’s Decker Hall, followed by a reception in the Napier Common Room.

learning how to get out of the sun” were crucial. The Deers adapted to Congolese life, with Ms. Deer carrying her babies on her back with a yards-long cloth wrap in the manner of Congolese mothers. Later, when they were old enough to stray from her side, the girls played with the many Congolese children who lived at the missionary station in traditional wattle-and-daub houses. In her decades in the Congo, which saw the family living at a number of missionary stations in the interior and the small town of Kenge as well as in the Congolese capital of Kinshasa, Ms. Deer’s tasks as a missionary wife varied tremendously. She managed the household and household staff, led women’s groups and homeschooled her 2 daughters until they moved to the capital in 1969. Ms. Deer taught her children via the Calvert home-schooling program, sending their work back to Baltimore to be graded. Sometimes, she would give the girls several lessons at once so that, if the family needed to go on an outing, they could take the day off without falling behind. Ms. Deer was also in charge of operating the 2-way radio with which messages were sent between farflung mission stations and the capital, and at times had to get up well before 6 o’clock to heat bathwater in kettles for family baths. For a few years in Kenge,

CHS tennis moves to CIF team tournaments next week
CLAREMONT COURIER Athlete of the Week
As co-captain and one of the top performers for the Wolfpack golf team, Kennedy Bingham is doing her best to drive her team to success. The Claremont High junior has been steadily improving her play each round during the regular season, consistently conquering courses in around 50 strokes. Bingham brought her best overall match to date during the Sierra League finals, shooting 96 on the first day of competition and then improving to 94 for the second day for an overall score of 190 strokes. That stellar performance put her at 5th place in the entire league for the tournament, and inspired 3 other teammates to receive all-league selections. Bingham competed in the CIF Individual Regionals on Wednesday, and hopes to return next year and pick up right where she left off.

Prop 30 is needed to restore community colleges
by Sue Keith, vice president, board of trustees and Roberta Eisel, faculty, Citrus College

I

n the October 3 edition of the Claremont COURIER, Sarah Torribio wrote about the impact of Proposition 30 on the California community college system. As Ms. Torribio reported, our California community colleges comprise the largest system of higher education in the nation and probably the world.
Now that Ms. Torribio has enlightened COURIER readers about the community college system as a whole, we would like you to know what the impact of the recession has been on Citrus College and what the passage of Proposition 30 will mean for your community college and its students. Since 2008, our college has experienced a loss of $7.3 million. Students at Citrus College have suffered a cut of 28 percent in the credit classes they need for graduation and/or transfer to a 4year college. The reduction in noncredit (including remedial) courses is even more bleak, a 57 percent reduction. Fewer classes have made it more dif-

VIEWPOINT
ficult for students to maintain full-time status, not only delaying the completion of their education but also putting them in jeopardy of dropping out. Research shows that full-time students become more engaged in their studies and have a better chance of fulfilling their educational goals. Many of our students see summer and winter session offerings as the opportunity to accelerate their education. We have had to make a 56 percent cut in the number of these classes as well. At the beginning of each semester, a waiting list is compiled of students who are seeking one or more classes. This year we had 3433 students on that waiting list seeking 6296 classes. The inevitable result of these cuts has been a reduction in student enrollments at a time when California has a growing population with a 10.6 percent unemployment rate. We often wonder what is happening to the “missing” students. What will their future be like without an education? Where are they working? Are they working? To begin to turn this situation around, a Yes vote on Proposition 30 will en-

able Citrus College to restore 165 to180 classes. Multiply that by approximately 30 students per class and you get the potential of more than 5400 additional opportunities for students seeking to fulfill their educational goals. What that means is more students seeking degrees or certificates in career technical fields will be trained—nurses, emergency medical technicians, police officers, automotive technicians, water technologists, public works specialists, small business owners and others. It also means that more students will have an opportunity to transfer to a baccalaureate institution leading to a 4year degree and, for some, a graduate degree. All of this equates to an educated and skilled workforce that can bring our state back to its greatness.

Community colleges are often referred to as the engine that drives our economy. We agree and are proud of that role. Some have said that funds from Proposition 30 go into the state general fund and there is no assurance that the promised money will go to education. Well, maybe! But, really, not! We can assure you that 2.6 million community college students can make their voices heard in Sacramento. They have in the past; they can again. And we will be there with them! Please show that you care about these young people seeking the classes that will help them to become skilled and educated citizens. Vote Yes on Proposition 30.

ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, this information can be obtained from one of the following three companies: LPS Agency Sales and Posting at (714) 730-2727, or visit the Internet Web site www.lpsasap.com (Registration required to search for sale information) or Priority Posting and Publishing at (714) 573-1965 or visit the Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com (Click on the link for "Advanced Search" to search for sale information), or auction.com at 1-800-280-2832 or visit the Internet Web site www.auction.com, using the Trustee Sale No. shown above. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

I can't say enough about Mason's easy-going professionalism. I have worked with many real estate agents—buying and selling a home—some good and some not so good, but Mason stands above the rest. Although a busy agent, he made us feel like we were his only clients. It is obvious that Mason takes pride in his work and helped us through what has usually been a very stressful process. We were always informed, updated and met personally when needed. There was never pressure, unnecessary stress or unanswered questions. I will recommend everyone I know to Mason!
