READERS’ COMMENTS
Building Bridges
Dear Editor: It was wonderful to see the story about Pomona College’s Bridges Auditorium in the November 17 issue of the COURIER. It is a beautiful space and a great resource to the college and to the community. I’d like to clear up some confusion about the venue’s ownership history. Although constructed on land owned by Pomona College, Bridges Auditorium was owned and operated by the Consortium—originally known as “The Claremont Colleges” and now the Claremont University Consortium (CUC) from 1932 to 2007. After repainting the iconic landmark at its own expense, Pomona College determined that Bridges Auditorium’s future would be better secured by acquiring the building from CUC. That transfer took place in 2007, and Pomona College subsequently made several urgent capital improvements, from updating electrical and fire safety systems to replacing the original septic system with a connection to the sewer system. Pomona College continues to subsidize the annual operating budget for the auditorium. As Pomona College works to restore Bridges Auditorium to prominence as a major event venue, we hope to better serve both college and community needs.

On party state
Dear Editor: Apparently my letter “Trending Towards Socialism” struck a nerve among the liberal faction in Claremont. They wrote such darn long letters. However, I wish to make a point one more time. The people of this country voted their best interest, whether it is a welfare check or food stamps, which they are afraid they might lose in an Obama economy (and I don’t blame them) or maybe an increase in a Medicare supplement that they cannot afford. People vote their interest. In this election, it is clear that citizens wanted 2 things to happen. They wanted a big government tent and to tax the rich. Mr. Obama, more than any other candidate that I can remember, and I have been around a long time, did a wonderful job of promoting class envy. No one can touch him in that area.

There is a slight downside. California is now a one party state. The Dems are already talking about doubling the car tax. The LA Times has even started to panic, saying “not so fast” on a lot of issues. When there is no one to object, the Dems get tax-crazy and power-hungry. I even hear through a certain legal grapevine that there is going to be an initative brewing after the immigration status is resolved to start open-border legislation. Now that is going to be interesting. The various interest groups have formed powerful coalitions and I firmly believe there will not be another Republican that will win the White House for many, many years to come. It will basically be a one-party country. One of my favorite people, Hillary Clinton—after the poor thing gets some rest—will most likely be the nominee in 2016. She will win if Bill is by her side. There would have to be 15 percent unemployment for that not to happen. The problem is, what will the media do when there are no Republicans to pick on? In California, there are just some tokens. After the 2016 national election blow-out, there will be just a few Republicans, who don’t really matter in the House and Senate. The Republicans will lose in great amounts because of the so-called “cultural changes and youth vote.” White men who voted for Romney should do the right thing and just kill themselves. They will be worthless in society in 2016. Who needs them anyway? As one letter-writer wrote “they are pillagers.” TV, radio and newspaper people will have no one of any importance to talk to but themselves. It will be hard to get guests to spar on the hated Fox news channel. Maybe they will drag out a very, very old John McCain and he can argue with Jesse Jackson. I can imagine some massive layoffs and it will be boring in 2016 for the Claremont COURIER to be still talking about the fees in the Wilderness Park, and whether the fees should go or stay. The Readers Comments section will all be agreeing with each other on politics. How boring. What to do? Journalists and media people losing their jobs—how sad. Tsk, tsk.

Hi-tech cameras keep watchful eye on Claremont

W

hen zooming through Claremont, drivers seem to hardly notice the extra piece of hardware placed atop traffic lights throughout a series of city intersections, but the device doesn’t fail to notice them.

Thirty-six Automatic License Plate Readers, or ALPR cameras, are busy 24 hours a day collectively capturing an estimated 3600 images of license plates per minute, with the capability of photographing cars driving up to 160 miles per hour. Three additional cameras roam the city attached to police vehicles, and police hope to add more cameras to those ranks in the near future. Scattered throughout the city, these hi-tech and highly efficient cameras recently caught the attention of a group of curious Claremont residents eager to find out just how close the cameras get. Claremont Lieutenant Mike Ciszek presented some insight at Active Claremont’s monthly board meeting last week. With cutbacks in Claremont’s police staffing in recent years, Lt. Ciszek says the ALPR system has provided the police department with the extra manpower needed to keep crime out of Claremont. “It’s just one more tool to help us,” Mr. Ciszek said. “Criminals are getting more advanced technologically, and we have to try and catch up. We are always playing catch-up to stay abreast of what is going on.” Despite the recent attention, these license plate cameras are not a brand-new piece of technology picking up crime throughout the city. The ALPR technology was introduced to the city of Claremont in January 2011, funded by a series of grants, in an effort to combat vehicle theft and other crime. While many security cameras have received a bad rap for infringement upon a citizen’s privacy, Lt. Ciszek claims that in the case of Claremont’s system, any misgivings spring from a common misconception. “We have strict policy,” Lt. Ciszek said. “We are not zooming into windows. That would be a violation of the policy and that’s not what [the cameras are] there for.” Through a PowerPoint presentation, Lt. Ciszek gave attendees a sneak-peek at the images captured by the ALPR. Among the pictures presented were a series of license plate close-ups, each with an accompanying distant image of the plates’ corresponding vehicle captured by the camera. The same goes for any camera operated through the Claremont Police Department. Pan-tilt cameras found at the Wilderness Park and other public areas— like the skate park, for example—can only capture the general image of what is taking place, according to Lt Ciszek. None have zoom-in capabilities, he continued. “We are not able to see who the driver of the vehicle

COURIER photos/Steven Felschundneff Claremont police have 36 Automatic License Plate Readers attached to fixed positions throughout the city. The cameras are on 24 hours a day and are capable of creating 3600 images per minute. The cameras have been used to identify illegal activity including stolen cars and wanted persons since they were installed last year.

is,” Lt. Ciszek said of the ALPR cameras. “They are just honed in at a basic level to read the license plate.” Despite its lack of zoom, the ALPR has proven its effectiveness in cracking Claremont crime. Since the cameras’ installation in March 2011 through the end of last month, police have received over 43 million vehicle reads. More than 35,000 of those were hits on stolen vehicles and wanted persons. There have been 147 total arrests as a result of information picked up through the ALPR system and more than 73 vehicles worth over $534,000 recovered. Police continue to watch those numbers rise. The high success rates are partially because information captured by the city’s ALPR system is fed into a county database, according to Lt. Ciszek. Any license plate associated with a wanted person, Amber Alert or stolen vehicle reported within Claremont or across the region is entered into this database. The moment a suspicious plate is captured by the ALPR, information and images are sent to the police dispatch, who are able to verify the information is correct and alert police as to the wanted person’s whereabouts. In a recent case, a burglar entered a Claremont business in the early morning and made off with stolen property. With a description of the burglar’s red truck and an estimated time of burglary, the police went back through camera footage and were able to find a picture of the vehicle. In the picture, police saw the stolen loot in the back of the truck bed. Now equipped with a license plate number thanks to the ALPR system, police made the arrest and returned the stolen goods. “We may not be able to identify who the person is [with the video footage], but when we run a license

plate with a person that is associated, then we can do more investigation,” Lt. Ciszek said. “It gives us something that we can work with.” Police can also use the camera system for an AllPoints Bulletin or BOLO (Be on the Lookout), used for individuals that Claremont police or other agencies should keep an eye on. Many of these individuals are either previous convicts or prime suspects in an outstanding criminal case. The belief is that these individuals might strike again. The ALPR alerts Claremont police when an individual with a BOLO enters the city. In this way, police can track their whereabouts and hopefully stop crime in the city before it happens. Councilmember Corey Calaycay, present at the meeting, noted that, with the state’ Public Safety Realignment Bill— transferring up to 30,000 low-level offenders to county jails over the next 3 years—the ALPR system is invaluable. “There is a lot of concern about people getting out of jail early and this [ALPR] is our opportunity to get some of those that are coming out and causing problems again,” said Mr. Calaycay, adding that the cameras are as much a deterrent as a means of catching criminals. Those who know Claremont has such technology will be less likely to commit crimes within city limits, Mr. Calaycay added. Lt. Ciszek says the Claremont police hope to continue to manage the challenges of the Realignment Bill and increased burglaries in the city with additional ALPR cameras in the near future. “This is our opportunity to track some of those [criminals] and take them out of the system,” Lt. Ciszek said. —Beth Hartnett

Claremonter explores Cabazon with mix of poetry, narrative

W

hen Trevor Losh-Johnson was driving through Riverside along the 10 Freeway a while back, heading towards Palm Springs, he hit a place called Cabazon. You’ve probably seen it, a stretch of California desert populated by a dis-

parate mixture of landmarks: big-box shopping outlets, the Morongo Indian Casino, futuristic white metal windmills and 2 oversized concrete dinosaurs.
The scene is made even more incongruous when you learn that one of the dinosaurs, a 100-ton TRex, is home to a creationist museum. It’s purpose?

COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff Claremont author Trevor Losh-Johnson, seated, has recently released the book In Cabazon with illustrations by his father Ken Johnson. The pair will be hosting a book signing that coincides with an artistʼs reception for the exhibit INSIDE: Exploring Light, Shadow and the Heart Held Captive, on December 8 at Gallery 57 in Pomona.

To teach visitors about dinosaurs and other prehistoric life while emphasizing that they were created—with no evolution involved, thank you—by God. Driving through this surreal region, most people keep on going. Occasionally, someone stops to try their luck at the casino, or to get a date shake at the famous Hadley’s fruit shop. Mr. Losh-Johnson, a Claremont High School graduate, had a more profound response. He wrote a book of poetry. “I wanted to do justice to the unsettling aspects of the area,” he explained of In Cabazon, his first publication, which was recently released through the BlankSpace Publications imprint. “The book has the capacity for multiple readings, from a straightforward, pulpy narrative to an almost demonic personal revelation,” he said. “It really was meant to be, on one hand, a fun kind of neo-noir drive through the desert but also a really infernal vision on the other.” The book, an ambitious amalgam of hallucinogenic imagery and story, is written in 30 parts. In the narrative portions, a man searches for his missing wife while followed by a mysterious car and his unsettling past. A sense of guilty foreboding evokes Kafka while a slight seediness and hints of violence evoke a ‘50s-style detective story. The idea of the dinosaur museum—where visitors roam about in the belly of a huge beast—adds a Biblical layer to the literary goulash, reminding the reader of Jonah’s captivity in the stomach of a whale in the Book of Jonah. The production of the book has been a family affair. Mr. Losh-Johnson’s father, Ken Johnson, created the artwork gracing the cover and the pages of the book. Mr. Johnson, an artist and psychologist and a teacher at Danbury School, drew upon the eerie sense of place and the ambivalence of his son’s poems to create images made from multiple photographic exposures. The book’s cover contains an array of visuals: a lightning bolt, a human figure, a ram, a dinosaur and an array of telephone poles resembling crucifixes. While they may not be perceived at once on a conscious level, they are intended to create “a reverberation in the subconscious mind,” the artist notes. “There’s an energy and dynamism,” he said. “It’s meant to be taken as layers in one total picture.” Illustrating his son’s book was a process he thoroughly enjoyed. “It’s been one revelation after another for me: learning about literature, learning about the world, learning about my son,” Mr. Johnson said. When Jeffrey Douglas, founder of BlankSpace Publications, asked Mr. Losh-Johnson if he knew of a good artist who could illustrate In Cabazon, the write immediately thought of his father. “I suggested him to the publisher because I knew how talented and professional he was,” he said. The result was better than anything Mr. LoshJohnson could have imagined. “I’m phenomenally proud of him,” he said. “I really feel the artwork is the best part of the book.” Mr. Losh-Johnson’s contribution to the book has been a long time coming. He first fell in love with poetry when he was 14 or 15. While his CHS instructors had prepared him to write a 5-paragraph essay backwards and forwards, he felt he was unprepared to read and understand poetry on a deep level. The teen felt it was a crucial skill, because he had his own poetic ambitions. “I’m a stubborn fellow,” he said. “So I took it upon myself to teach myself. I took it up as an avocation.”

He began to read, filling his blind spots with literary heavy hitters like T.S. Elliot, W.B. Yeats and Ezra Pound. “I was very enthusiastic about it,” Mr. Losh-Johnson recalled. “I had this feeling there was this whole world of wisdom and vision, and I was completely ignorant to it and I wasn’t going to be able to access it with the education at hand.”
Once he began accessing that world, he also started tapping into his own poetic abilities. He has continued his exploration of poetry and the writing world since his 2002 graduation

from CHS, earing a degree in comparative literature from UC Santa Barbara and studying for a time in the master’s program at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario in Canada. After years immersed in verse, Mr. Losh-Johnson has come up with a book that he characterizes as a gothic pastoral. “It’s a nightmarish story split formally between 2 poles, the lyric and the narrative.” His book employs the inverse of T.S. Elliot’s world-end description, starting not with a whimper but a bang. At its start, the reader is informed, or cautioned, that, “This book will prepare you to argue against idolatrous museums.” Is In Cabazon for you? You can find out by studying the description in the book’s preface: “It is for the child who, walking through a darkened house, glimpsing

Traveling the world with the supermarket, ethnic market and farmers’ market
by Jan Wheatcroft

O

kay, it’s about food again, but not platefuls of ready-made deliciousness. Instead I want to talk about the fun of finding ingredients, being immersed in the foreign-ness, smelling the smells that evoke a visit to another country, and discovering ingredients that you didn’t know even existed.
Since I do this whenever I travel—even to such places as England and Sweden—it is very enjoyable to know that I can call up memories of past trips just by going to markets close to where I live. So without stepping out of my comfort zone, I will share with you my favorite discoveries. Wolfe’s Market is just up the street from the Village on Harvard and Foothill. They have a good selection of international cheeses, nicely displayed, and the prices are clearly visible. To satisfy my travel addiction, however, I go for the Walker’s Shortbread Biscuits. Not just any Walker’s Biscuits, but the gingered ones. I first ate these in Katmandu, Nepal and ate as many as I could get my hands on. Shortbread is just crammed full of butter, which makes it so good, but adding the bits of ginger makes it wonderful. I finally found them in England and dragged them back as gifts. Imagine my surprise when I discovered them just steps from home. Just to the south of the Village is the newest Claremont market, Super King. It is located just south of the 10 Freeway on Indian Hill Boulevard. My friend Helen first dragged me there, promising me a visual treat if nothing more. Of course, I found all sorts of treasures perfect for a travel and food addict. The place is huge and there are guards all about. The parking lot always seems packed and often the check out lines are very long, but the prices are amazingly low, so it’s no surprise that so many people are shopping there. Itt’s the selection that is most interesting, though. I am thrilled when I see so many really fresh fruits and vegetables. Many are hard to find and are not packaged but open to fresh air and one can get what ever quantity desired. I am always tempted to buy what I didn’t think I wanted. For visual stimulation, it is necessary to go to the bakery and look at all the cakes. The colors and decorations are a rainbow of cream and fluff. When I took my sister (visiting from New York), she took pictures until she was stopped by an employee. (Why should it have mattered?) The meats are also amazing, both in price and variety of cuts and types. My friend, Amy, now makes her dogs happier than ever with chicken hearts, which has become their favorite nosh. The very large meat counter is always crowded with people shouting and pointing and buying. It is a very lively place. I just wander up and down the aisles muttering to myself, not only about the meats and fish but about the variety of oils, beans, frozen foods, rices and sauces. A lot of the products come from Spanish-speaking countries and the Middle East, which makes me a very slow shopper as I like to read all the labels and think about the places the food has come from. I can bore the ears off of anyone who has come with me by saying, “listen to this” or “look where this is from,” so I am often left to shop on my own. It can be a bit overwhelming to shop here if you don’t know what you want, but it can be an adventure to see what you can come away with. I never found regular candies for Halloween but bought a huge bag of some foreign choices and wonder what the trick-ortreaters thought about what they found in their Halloween bags the next day. Also, where else can one buy Monkey Mucus hair gel? Years ago, Amy and I used to drive down to Holt near Towne Avenue to a market we called No Door, due to the fact that the entry door was in the back and with no front entrance it had a secret look about it. It was a rather grubby place for Vietnamese groceries but it just shut down due to fire. It later reopened closer to Indian Hill on Holt in a large modern building with a front entrance and a big sign Hoa Binh Supermarket. In Vietnam, I never went to a “supermarket” as such,

but instead went to huge markets filled with lots of small shops maintained by different individual sellers. Hoa Binh is a supermarket but it carries many of the same products found in Vietnam and many of them are unrecognizable to me. Fruits and vegetables are labeled in Vietnamese and I have had to ask people what they are. I like that. It makes me feel that I have entered another world for food and atmosphere. There is a great selection of fresh tofu of all sorts and all kinds of wrappers for pot stickers and egg rolls. The rows of sauces, all written in Vietnamese or Thai, is fascinating but difficult to choose from without help in translation or previous knowledge. There are so many choices of crackers, sweets, and other packaged goods. It has a certain smell which brings back my own travel memories of open markets and farm-to-stall shopping in South East Asia. I am glad it is so nearby. Every so often, I go over to the Bombay Stores in Upland on the north side of Foothill, near San Antonio Avenue. I go there to buy Henna to color my hair naturally. They seem to have the best supply. They also carry tons of CDs of Indian music and lots of Indian films. There are also many different spices and sauces from India, and I always come away with something new to try. All around us are small groceries run by Lebanese and perhaps other Middle Easterners, which carry a wide variety of beans, rice, yogurts and cheeses typical of their cultures. In one day, a person can travel far and wide enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of places visited or just dreamt about. These visits can both entice you to go to places you might not have thought about or be glad to stay at home. It can lead you to try new things in your menus or perhaps just slip in a new spicy taste among your old favorites. It may be the beginning of a new exploration or like finding an old friend, after returning home from a rich travel experience. Whichever it is, it is nice to know that such places exist to provide a less adulterated adventure for shoppers looking for an authentic shopping experience. Chain supermarkets carry foreign-made or foreignlike products on a small scale, but being enveloped in a cultural environment for even a short bit of time can get those gastric juices flowing, especially when heartily mixed with a bowlful of memories.

I have reached the point in life where even if I spent every waking moment I have left going through my accumulated possessions, I would run out of time before I would run out of junk to sort through. Do you need some?

Paying their fair share
Dear Editor: As we slogged our way through the recent political campaigns, and as we now approach the legendary “fiscal cliff,” there’s been a lot of talk about getting the rich to pay their fair share. President Obama uses that expression quite a lot, as does Nancy Pelosi. The newly-elected senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren, said that she was going to make sure the “big guys pay their fair share.” You hear it all the time. It’s gratifying to know that everybody is trying to be fair. But what might a fair share for the rich be? The answer is not obvious to me. In 2000, the people with the top 10 percent of income paid 67 percent of all the income tax revenue collected by the federal government. In 2009 it was up to 70 percent. This does not include social security taxes or Medicare, both of which are small potatoes to the wealthy. This is just federal income tax. From all the talk, I would never have guessed it was that high. 70 percent. Wow! So then is 70 percent a fair share? Is it fair that only 10 percent of the people have to pay 70 percent of all the income taxes? If 70 percent is not fair, what would a fair percentage be? Maybe we should ask these folks to pay 80 percent of all federal income taxes? 90 percent? Let’s just ask them to pay 100 percent of all federal income taxes and make them all wear a big scarlet letter “A” on the outside of their clothing! How’s that for fairness? I don’t think a lot of people understand that the rich are already paying such a large portion of income taxes. In a recent poll, 58 percent of the American people said they though the rich should pay more. I have to believe that few people know what CLARIFICATION The story “In service of others” should have noted that the Veteran’s Day ceremony at Memorial Park was hosted by the Keith Powell Post #78, American Legion, not by the city. *** A headline in the Saturday, November 17 edition “Tree removal price to pay to maintain Wilderness Park” was incorrect. As stated in the story, the city will provide $24,000 to the Metropolitan Water District to assist in the removal of 89 trees along the Thompson Creek Trail.

READERS’ COMMENTS
the actual figures are. You would think otherwise, but not once did I hear any of those blockhead Republican politicians give their listeners these statistics. I was shocked to learn it, and I think others would be, too. Another shocking figure, this one much more well-known, is that 47 percent of Americans pay no income taxes at all. None! Some are retirees on social security, so you have to figure they spent a lifetime paying taxes and now rightfully want to be done. Military personnel in combat areas pay no taxes, and who would want them to? But the retirees and military personnel are the smallest portion of the 47 percent, and I think that a number other than zero might be their “fair share.” It’s often argued that lower income people are the ones who can least afford taxes. That is undoubtedly true. But lower income people are also the ones who can least afford things like air conditioning, dishwashers, flat-screen TVs, computers, Internet and every video game known to man, and yet they seem to have all those things. Some of the folks I know who inhabit that sweet tax-free zone actually have campers, boats or even horses! So what would be so wrong if they contributed a little something to the public good? At this point, some of you are reaching for your keyboards, primed to remind us all how people would have to forego food if they had to pay income taxes. But please, please spare us. Those of us without personal assistants to do our grocery shopping know that few of the people we see in line at Stater Bros. using the government EBT cards look like they’ve missed many meals. I don’t know what to make of all this, it’s too perplexing. Perhaps this may be a symptom of the ever-evolving English language. It used to be that the word “gay” meant happy and light-hearted, but now it has quite another meaning. When I was a kid, anyone born in this country was able to call themselves a “native American.” Not anymore. I suppose that in modern-day usage, the word “fair” is used to describe a condition where the out-voted few get to pick up the tab for what is becoming a nation of freeloaders. Let us annotate our dictionaries accordingly. Bruce Spena

Democracy is not Socialism

Dear Editor: Jacqueline Mahoney’s letter from November 14 got me thinking of how people throw around words like socialism and fascism as though they describe any and every evil they see when it comes to government regulation. For the record, socialism is a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole. In our case, “community” refers to our elected officials—because we live in a democracy. We elect representatives to work for our welfare to regulate the means of production, distribution and exchange. We should all be working together to ease the anxiety of those who are uncomfortable about “socialism,” whose candidate lost the election, and who believe that our way of life is now going to decline into what may be a further concept of socialism, as Marxist theory would describe it, as a transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of communism. Relax, people! Democrats (capital “d”) do not want a communist government nor a communist economic system. We are democrats (small “d”). We believe in democracy. We may see more evils in capitalism than most Republicans, but we recognize and respect our democratic republic and want the best for the people of this country, just as you do. I agree with Ms. Mahoney that those of us who voted to keep President Obama in office for 4 more years should not gloat about our success but should, as she notes, remember that, although Mr. Obama won the election, it was by a slim margin. What surprises and scares me is that so many people did vote for Mr. Romney. Most of us—over 50 percent of those who voted—did not see Mr. Romney as a competent person to lead this country. For me and many others, his personal wealth did not make him a criminal, nor did it make him less capable of leading this nation. However, I do think his wealth, and the experience that earned him that wealth was an impediment to his understanding of what most Americans have to

struggle with every day. Simply put, Mr. Romney is a fool. He is foolish to believe that millions of dollars from other wealthy people whose interest he would best serve once in office could buy him an election. He is foolish to believe that running an international sports event qualifies him to run the federal government. He is foolish to believe that people who come here from other countries so their children might have more opportunities will go back to where they came from voluntarily and end our illegal immigration problems. He is foolish to believe that would-be students can borrow money from their parents to go to college instead of utilizing available, needed student loans. He is foolish to believe that the personal decisions a woman makes about how many children she will have or when she will have them is not just that—personal. He is correct to believe that most families want what he has been able to give to his family, but foolish to believe that that goal is not a struggle for most families in the socio-economic real world, where most of us live. He is a fool to believe that giving tax advantages to the wealthy and corporations creates jobs, even though for 11 years we have allowed those tax breaks, and we are still, as Ms. Mahoney states, dealing with rampant unemployment. We elected a fool 12 years ago, and we have struggled through wars and tax breaks that have made a few folks richer and most of us poorer or struggling to live well. George Bush is a fool who did not have the qualifications to lead, was incompetent at making intelligent decisions and who gave away our national treasure by turning a surplus into a deficit. What scares me is that if Ms. Mahoney’s figures are reliable, 58 million Americans were willing to elect another fool to lead this country. One more thing that unnerves me. Please do not describe all families on food stamps as those who don’t “give a damn” about where it comes from and hope to be on food stamps “forever.” Let’s be careful how we judge people in need. I am sure that many hardworking, taxpaying fellow Americans on the east coast will need food stamps and other essentials from the federal and state governments until they get back on their feet, through no fault of their own.

CHS band marches toward growing success

W

hen the Claremont High School Marching Band lost its winning ways, band director Melanie Riley-Gonzalez knew she had to act.
The band had grown just enough to edge the Wolfpack last year from the small-band group in its past competition circuit into the category for larger bands. Faced off against much larger schools—many with funding allowing for props ranging from dozens of $50 flags to large wooden ramps to an oversized model of a pyramid—CHS didn’t place at all in competition last year. Ms. Riley-Gonzalez opted to switch the band to a new association, the Southern California Judging Circuit (SCJC), which she felt was a better fit. Along with featuring smaller schools, the SCJC puts a 50/50 emphasis on music and visual presentation, as compared to the last circuit’s more showstopping orientation. The results of the switch have been great. This season, the CHS Marching Band won 2 second places and a third place in competition as well as a 4th place in their division at the SCJC championships held on Saturday, November 17 at Heritage High School in

Menifee. The championships featured 10 finalists chosen among competitors at 14 local and regional field shows. SCJC competition is heated and close. At the band’s last contest before the championships, held at Bonita High School, the Marching Wolfpack notably missed first place by only .05 percent. The band was feeling excited and confident on Thursday, November 15 as they shot group photos and practiced for the championship. They were also feeling more fragrant than they have in some time, considering that this year they got new uniforms to replace the aging ones that have served the Pack for years. The band’s former jackets were an impressive 23 years old. Money for the replacement uniforms was raised by CHS Wolfpack band boosters over a period of years. The students voted on a daring routine this year, a somewhat “artsy,” multi-tempo program with 3-movements, each dealing with the theme of “Reflections.” So far the selection, which features the choreographed use of large, mirror-like reflectors, has paid off in spades. “I love working with kids to be able to create something, developing them as musicians and seeing them grow throughout the year,” Ms. Riley-Gonzales says about her demanding but

never-boring job, which she took on 3 years ago. One of the strengths of CHS band members is that they receive such a strong foundation in music at the elementary and junior high levels before coming to the high school, notes the band director. Senior Gabe Garvin, who is the drum major for the CHS Marching Band, said the students have benefited from the division switch, and from Ms. Riley-Gonzales’ palpable enthusiasm for music. “I think she’s great. She has a lot of energy toward what she does, and I

think it rubs off on us,” Gabe said. There’s year-round work involved in being a part of the marching band, including twice-weekly 3-hour practices over the course of the summer. Along with fosturing a great sound, it nurtures camaraderie among the band members, he shared. “I think we’re probably one of the most unique groups of people on campus,” he said. “We’ve got people from all kinds of sports, all kinds of groups. It’s a mixing bowl of people.”

Social media and its impact on education
Christine Greenhow will discuss “Social Media and Learning: Students Getting Help from Friends” at Garrison Theater on Tuesday, November 27 at 7:30 p.m. Ms. Greenhow, assistant professor, department of counseling, educational psychology and special education at Michigan State, will explore the impact of digital literacy and digital citizenship on college-aged students and those just entering the work force. Knowing how to effectively use social media is fast becoming a required skill as college admissions officers and employers increasingly want candidates with social media savvy. De-

veloping an effective social presence via LinkedIn, Facebook, MySpace and Twitter, for example, is a must. Ms. Greenhow will stress how students are increasingly expected to develop these 21st century competencies despite wide variability in the quality of learning opportunities schools provide. Social network sites (SNSs), and the relationships that develop therein, provide supportive opportunities for learning that can complement or supplement school-based opportunities. In the talk, Ms. Greenhow will explore what current educational research has to say about how adolescents and young adults, especially those from low-income families, are using social network sites and new social networking applications to their advantage. Garrison Theater is located at 231 E. 10th St. The talk is free and open to the public.

CHS alumni reunion at Casa de Salsa

Oh what a season! CHS sports standouts

COURIER photo/Steven Felschundeff Members of the Claremont High School boys water polo team celebrate their victory over Thousand Oaks recently at CHS. The Pack defeated the Lancers 7-5 in overtime in the CIF wild card game and will advance to the regular CIF bracket capping a strong comeback for the Pack.

COURIER photo/Cameron Barr Sophomore Hailey Kayatta strikes the ball during a match against Foothill High School earlier this season at CHS. The girls varsity team went undefeated going into their first round of CIF playoff matches.

Team of the year Claremont’s girls tennis team cruised through their league matches, finishing 9-0 in the regular season. Once CIF play started, the Wolfpack were on a mission. They allowed only 4 sets to their opponents in each of the first 2 playoff games, then beat Troy 11-7 before bowing out in the semifinals to eventual D2 champions San Marino. Comeback of the year The boys water polo team made it to the first

round of playoffs this year, and set sights on beating wildcard team Thousand Oaks. After a defensive battle produced a 5-5 tie in regulation, the Wolfpack absorbed wave after wave of attack. The Pack broke out on the counter, twice catching the Breakers overcommitted. Claremont scored 2 goals in overtime to win a huge playoff game in their home pool. Breakthrough team of the year The girls cross country team endured a grueling schedule this season, emerging from the Sierra League with a joint league title after a close 2nd finish in the League Finals. Claremont finished 4th at CIF Prelims, and 8th at the finals. The Wolfpack should be solid for years to come.

Young athlete of the year Sophomore Tyler Romero had a fantastic season on the girls varsity volleyball team, providing the offense as one of the Wolfpack’s premier outside hitters. The 5’5” Romero also doubled as a defensive specialist, helping the Pack transition from dig to spike on many occasions during points. Claremont will lose 6 players going into 2013, so Romero will be one of the foundations for a strong team next season. team also sent one runner to the finals. The Wolfpack girls will have 5 of their top 6 runners returning to the team next year, so look for certain improvement from them. Webb’s boys cross-country team finished 13th out of the 16 Division 5 teams at the CIF Finals, missing out on advancing to the regional race. Although the Gauls had 5 runners post sub-17 minute races, they were a few team places below where they needed to be.

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 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.
