READERS’ COMMENTS
Building Bridges
Dear Editor: I received my November 17 COURIER with the lovely photos of Bridges Auditorium. Many memories came flooding back. It was comforting to read that the auditorium is being given new life after being stagnant of a regular season for way too long. The article stated the reality of keeping the facility functioning and the neglect it has suffered due to a limited budget. Receiving support from the Pomona College administration is important; having a budget for first-class performances is imperative. The public needs to be aware of what is involved for Bridges to be the magical performing arts center that it was in the past. Bridges has faced many hurdles over the years in order to have presentations in the auditorium. At a close distance, I observed the highs and the lows when my father, Jay Doty, was director. The highs were when he was able to secure contracts for certain artists, such as Arthur Rubinstein, Beverly Sills and Joan Sutherland, and Q and As with Cary Grant, Lucille Ball, Bette Davis and Carol Burnett, just to name a few. I remember those years as the magical years. At one time, there were 40 performances in a season. The lows came with budget cuts and the economy. The 40 performances became 20 performances. The well started running dry. This was when Bridges was under Central Services with the Colleges. Evidently, it has become drier over the years. Pomona College deserves applause for bringing life back to Bridges again. The auditorium is a jewel set in the middle of campus. It needs to be remembered for what it is, a treasure, a gift from the family of Mabel Shaw Bridges. It is time to try to bring some of the past back. Book those acts!

City and schools fine-tune Youth & Family Master Plan

T

wenty-four percent of 7th graders at El Roble report having felt sad or hopeless during the past 12 months, and 29 percent of CHS freshman, 34 percent of juniors and a staggering 40 percent of students at San Antonio High and Community Day schools say they face despondency, according to a survey released by the Claremont Unified School District last week.
With statistics like these in mind, the Claremont Youth and Family Committee is taking action on a plan to improve the city’s overall mental and physical well-being in the coming year. The committee’s plan—which received unanimous approval by the board at its quarterly meeting Tuesday—looks to bring a more concrete way of evaluating the effectiveness of the city’s overarching Youth and Family Master Plan. Members would like to implement a better way of tracking statistics not previously accounted for. Their course of action over the next year includes consulting with each of

the city’s service providers to track the effectiveness of their programming, hosting a summit with those providers to hash out ideas on how to build on that service and embarking on a campaign to educate Claremont residents on the mental and physical health issues faced by the community. “This is a key building block for creating a platform for collaboration and information-sharing across the community,” said chairman of the board Jim Wilson. “We want to make sure people are tracking their results and making themselves accountable to their own stakeholders for what they are doing and what they are spending money on.” The Claremont Youth and Family Master Plan was first adopted in 2007 to help educate local families on Claremont’s local resources and service providers like National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Tri-City Mental Health, which offers mental health services and education. “As cities come to realize how community resources impact the quality of life for their residents, Y&FMPs are central in strategically setting goals for outcomes and coordinating efforts to ensure communities have the assets in place,” wrote Butch Henderson in an introduction. “Not only will our plan

make a difference for Claremont families, but it will make a difference beyond our community as it serves as a teaching tool for other cities around the nation.” While the plan did indeed provide an important and comprehensive list of services for Claremont families, it lacked a means of tracking if those programs were actually helping those families, according to Mr. Wilson. “The progress report was just a bunch of anecdotal things. There was nothing really quantitative that showed how we measured progress,” he explained. “We are trying to do that now.” In 2008, the Youth and Family Committee gathered to re-evaluate the master plan. A number of new measures were adopted, such as the implementation of ClaremontConnect.com, an interactive website providing up-todate listings on local social services and enrichment activities. To fix the problem of tracking those services’ effectiveness, committee members also turned to methodologies like Results-Based Accountability (RBA), which evaluates a program based on its results rather than merely the number of clients coming in and out of the door. “These charts have been able to

shine a little more light on how these organizations are using RBA and have helped us in figuring out how all of these indicators fit into the goals we have established,” said intern Rachel Gordon, who presented the work plan at Tuesday night’s meeting. “Part of it is, in a way, giving the plan more structure. It’s not that the plan was a bad plan, it’s just that the methodology didn’t create natural metrics,” Mr. Wilson added. With these goals identified, the committee plans to continue to work with the city’s providers over the next several months, creating program profiles to step through RBA and program evaluations in a more manageable way. The committee will reconvene in the spring to reassess their work and present its progress to the Claremont City Council. While much work remains to be done, the committee remains focused on its goal: helping NAMI and TriCity and other organizations in Claremont continue to build upon services for the community in need.   “To me, it’s all steps forward. Baby steps or giant steps, it’s all moving in the right direction,” Mr. Wilson said. “We are surrounded by great help here.” —Beth Hartnett

A

man left in critical condition after a solo DUI crash in Claremont last week has died, according to police.

DUI crash victim Keenan files for election with clerk Despite speculation, Claremont’s dies of injuries nicipal election isn’t going anywhere.muMichael John Keenan entered the race for Claremont City Council less than an hour before the city’s deadline, bringing the candidates vying for the council’s 2 open seats to 3. Joining Mr. Keenan are incumbents Mayor Larry Schroeder and Councilmember Corey Calaycay, hoping to return to their posts. Should Mr. Keenan have failed to make the deadline, the city of Claremont would have skipped its first municipal election in 25 years. The last time the Claremont municipal election was canceled was in 1988. In that election, former councilmembers Bill McCready and Judy Wright were reappointed.    While Mr. Keenan said he was initially hesitant

Found with severe head wounds after being thrown from his friend’s truck, the man was transported to the hospital on Saturday, December 2. While his health was reported to be improving as of last week, police were notified of his death Monday night. Claremont police are working to amend counts against the driver, 27-year old Jesus Rodriguez of Pomona, to include vehicular manslaughter. Mr. Rodriguez was found to be driving with a blood alcohol content over twice the legal limit, according to police. The deadly crash was initially reported by an employee of Claremont Toyota, where the drive came to a grisly end. Police found Mr. Rodriguez standing next to his truck, which was crashed through a chained-off driveway on the property. Mr. Rodriguez was unable to tell police what had taken place or where he was, according to Lieutenant Shelly Vander Veen. Police found his passenger unresponsive nearby. After some investigation, police believe Mr. Rodriguez made a sharp turn after crashing through the barrier and Mr. Rodriguez’s passenger was flung from the truck to the ground because the side door was not fully closed. Other counts filed against Mr. Rodriguez include driving under the influence and driving unlicensed. —Beth Hartnett

about beginning his fourth campaign for city council, prodded by some to not run as a means to “save the city money,” reflecting back on his initial reason for running for council spurred him forward. “My whole crux is exercising our majority rule on Claremont to control our resources. I have a right to run. If I didn’t, I would contradict my platform,” he said, while noting that the city specifically budgets the money needed for its municipal election. If re-elected, Mr. Schroeder would serve his second term on council, while Mr. Calaycay, the council veteran, would serve his third term. The Claremont municipal election is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, March 5.

From the city managerʼs office
Water line installation on Bonita Avenue Golden State Water will be installing a new main water line, fire hydrants and additional services along Bonita Avenue from Mountain Avenue to Taylor Drive, and on Taylor Drive from Bonita Avenue to the end of the cul-de-sac, according to the latest city manager’s report. The work is expected to take 8 weeks to complete beginning Monday, December 10 and continuing until Monday, January 28. No work is to take place during the week of December 24 and the week of December 31, City Manager Tony Ramos notes. A 12-inch main will be installed on the south side of Bonita Avenue, within the eastbound bike lane. Special surface treatment will be required to restore the road within this area. The community should expect some inconvenience with the presence of construction crews using backhoes and dump trucks, Mr. Ramos explains in his report. Traffic control will be provided, maintaining one lane in each direction during working hours. Questions should be directed to Golden State at (800) 999-4033. Village Lofts design to be reviewed by the Architectural Commission tonight Tonight, Wednesday, December 12, at 7 p.m. in the Council Chamber, the Architectural Commission will review a request by Denley Investments and Management for approval of the architectural design, colors and materials for the new mixed-use development at 127 Oberlin Ave. The project is located in Village West at the former Rich Products site. The first floor will consist of approximately 10,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space and 10 live/work loft spaces. Additional live/work lofts and 64 residential apartments will occupy the second, third and fourth floors. A 2-level, 180-space parking structure will occupy the first and second floors of the main building.

Public meetings to discuss additional surplus properties

T

omorrow, Thursday, December 13, the first of 2 public hearings will be held in the boardroom of the Richard S. Kirkendall Education Center, 170 W. San Jose Ave. in Claremont, regarding the district’s future plans for 2 pieces of surplus property.
The first of these is approximately 3.5 acres located

at 700 W. Base Line Rd. The property is commonly recognized as the district’s maintenance yard, which school CUSD housed located buses and trucks. The yard is just east of the former NEWS district property, which was sold to homebuilder DR Horton for $6.2 million at a public auction held on February 28. At a meeting held earlier that month, the CUSD board identified 3 priorities they planned to fund via proceeds of the property’s sale. These included the Claremont High School The-

atre Renovation Project, CUSD’s technology update and the facility health and safety needs of the district. The second property, about 9.7 acres known as La Puerta, is located at 2475 N. Forbes Ave. A second hearing regarding each of these properties will be held at the Kirkendall Center on Tuesday, December 18 at 6:30 p.m. For more information regarding the surplus property or the hearings, contact Barbi Hilt at 398-0609, ext. 70402.

Danbury faces challenges with strategy, positivity

D

anbury School met each of the 3 goals staff worked toward last year, Principal Stephen Hamilton and a delegation from Claremont’s primary special education school site shared during an annual report on their Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) delivered at the last meeting of the Claremont Unified School District Board of Education.

Mandated by No Child Left Behind, a school’s SPSA details progress toward goals set the previous year as well as its current priorities. Last year, they planned to continue and enhance twice monthly

Professional Learning Committees (PLCs) involving all teaching staff. In these meetings, SCHOOL which were indeed BOARD implemented, the teachers addressed IEP goals (individual education plans set for students identified as disabled), and shared ideas on effective teaching techniques. The staff at Danbury also aimed for and demonstrated “improved rigor” in the area of classroom instruction. Toward this end, staff read and discussed a book called Rigor is Not a Four Letter Word by Barbara R. Blackburn. And for their third goal, Danbury teachers were asked to learn about Kagan Structures—simple, step-by-step instructional strategies designed by Dr. Spencer Kagan to increase student engagement and cooperation—and adapt them to severely physically impaired,

non-communicative and severely cognitively impaired students. Dr. Kagan details one such strategy in an article on the KagonOnline.com website. “For example, a simple Kagan Structure is a RallyRobin. Rather than calling on one student at a time, the teacher has all students interacting at once by saying, ‘Turn to your partner and do a RallyRobin.’ During a RallyRobin, students repeatedly take turns, giving one answer each turn to create an oral list. Each student in the class gives several answers.” Danbury’s Academic Performance Index or API score, a composite number representing the results in state testing, was lower in 2012 than in 2011. The shrinkage, from 920 to 837, was explained by Mr. Hamilton. Three students who were not prepared for STAR testing took the test anyway and did poorly. In

one case, Mr. Hamilton said, he and his staff misjudged the abilities of one of their disabled students. In the 2 other cases, state mandates required that the students take the STAR test initially before being allowed next year to take an adaptive form of state testing. In such a small school, 3 students with exceptionally poor scores can make a huge difference in the numbers, he said. The school board expressed an understanding of the special challenges faced by Danbury and expressed admiration for the climate of the school. “It’s really my favorite school in Claremont,” Steven Llanusa shared. “You can be having a bad day and you come on the campus and just feel the positivity,” Board President Jeff Stark added. “It really is the happiest place on Earth.” —Sarah Torribio

CHS Mock Trial team has standout performance at competition

T

he term legal drama has taken on a meaning beyond Law and Order and Boston Legal for a number of Claremont High School students who recently competed in the Los Angeles County Mock Trial Competition. Members of CHS’s maroon team—the equivalent of a varsity squad among Mock Trial participants—argued a make-believe case called The People v. Vega before a real judge and at an impressive venue: Los Angeles Superior Court in downtown LA. The case, which involved the teenaged offspring of a high-ranking city official who has been accused of a hit-and-run accident, has many factors that kept it from being cut-and-dry. Among these is a possible Miranda Rights violation as well as a foreign exchange student who insists she was only a passenger during the accident. The CHS students traded off, representing both the prosecution and defense, as they competed against 82 teams from LA County. They managed to advance to the semi-finals before being knocked out of competition, and ended up winning third place. In an added coup, CHS Mock Trial Team participant Julia Tanenbaum was named The Alan I. Rothenberg Outstanding Defense Pretrial Attorney for her performance. These are big honors for a relatively new team. Attorney Donna Hecht came on board with CHS’s Mock Trial Program as a volunteer attorney coach 6 years ago when it was first being organized, joining coach Bruce Potteroff, who also teaches history and photography. Ms. Hecht’s daughter had already graduated from CHS, but she felt it was a wonderful opportunity from which students would benefit. Ms. Hecht had already served as a scoring attorney in competition for many years, so she knew the ropes of the program. “Obviously, it teaches them about the system of justice,” she said. “It’s a more realistic view than they can

get from movies and TV shows. It also gives them an opportunity to think on their feet and speak in public.” There’s also another reason for its appeal, Ms. Hecht said. “It’s fun. It’s an intellectual kind of team sport.” Amid the exuberance, however, there is also a fair bit of commitment. The team, both veterans and newbies, first began practicing last spring, learning how to present and becoming versed in courtroom vagaries such as various types of objections. The students received the details of the case for the Los Angeles County Mock Trial Competition in September from its sponsor, The Constitutional Rights Foundation, and began competing in trials in November. They spent hours studying The People v. Vega as well as arguing other cases against students from neighboring regions like Orange and San Bernardino Counties in preparation for the big showdown. During the season, the teens meet on 2 weekdays and during a weekend gathering. Once the students are assigned their roles, they have lots to do, including writing opening statements and closing arguments, and preparing to examine and cross-examine witnesses. Ms. Hecht then critiques students’ statements, often assisted by part-time attorney coach Ross Trindle. Mock Trials are often very nerve-wracking, with students experiencing a rush of adrenaline similar to what is felt by those who take the stand or examine witnesses in a real trial, according to CHS senior Elizabeth Phelps. These experiences, along with the seemingly endless array of regulations and statutes, have proved fascinating for Juliette Lin, a CHS senior who served as a prosecution attorney during the Mock Trial Competition. “I’m interested in pursuing a law career,” Juliette said, adding that Ms. Hecht and Mr. Trindle have been great mentors. “I had no idea I would be interested in law but once I started Mock Trial, it showed me what

it takes. I realized it’s something I really enjoy doing.” Most students on the Mock Trial team add the activity to their college applications, and Juliette, whose top pick is USC, is no exception. She even wrote about Mock Trial for one of the essays required by the common application. Through her Mock Trial participation, senior Elizabeth Phelps, by contrast, has determined that she does not want to pursue law. She did, however, have a great time acting out roles like that of the foreign exchange student, who served as a witness for the prosecution and, in other rounds, had to endure cross-examination by the defense team. She says she’s learned much during her years participating in Mock Trial. “It’s definitely made me not only more knowledgeable about the whole legal system itself but also a better speaker. I’m better able to get up in front of crowds and speak off the cuff as well as memorize lines.” Considering that all of the competition rounds took place on weekday afternoons in downtown Los Angeles, Mr. Trindle was impressed by how many family members came out to see the CHS team compete during the 5 days of trial rounds, semi-finals and finals. Principal Brett O’Connor also made it out to see the team post an impressive performance. Like Ms. Hecht, Mr. Trindle keeps coming back to CHS to mentor students interested in hitting the Mock Trial courtroom. “I keep doing it because I like seeing how the students go from knowing very little about the law to being very conversant in what, at times, are very complex legal principles and legal arguments,” he said. “There’s something that judges often say at the end of the round: It’s good to see young people taking part in a positive side of the legal system as opposed to being a part of the juvenile justice system.” —Sarah Torribio

The season of light
by Debbie Carini

W

hen a Jewish man marries a Christian woman (or viceversa), there is one thing they can both whole-heartedly embrace during the month of December: lights! (I would like to add eggnog here but my husband, the Jewish partner, does not see the appeal of 8 ounces of yellow-y milk containing 345 calories, 19 grams of fat and 35 grams of carbohydrates, while I am chugging and smiling with my new, golden mustache!)

But back to the lights. For Christmas celebrants, this is the season of twinkling LED sparklers in the tree, the front yard bushes, on the lawn, along the eaves and...well...pretty much anywhere you can imagine that is close enough to a plug. For Hanukkah observers, there are beautiful menorahs in every shape and size. There are menorahs crafted of metal, ceramic and glass—in every profile imaginable from Noah’s Ark to moose antlers, as long as there are 8 candle holders symbolizing the 8 nights of Hanukkah and a ninth for the shamash or “helper” candle, which is used to light all the other candles. I’ve seen a giant, lit menorah on top of a Hummer in a parade, and in

New York City there is a 32-foot-high, 4000-pound candelabra that is so large it must be lit by a cherry picker. The first time our customs meshed, my husband found himself standing in front of a pokey, blue spruce with uncommonly sharp needles. I had handed him a strand of lights and expected him to kick-off the decorating, just as my father always had, by starting with the lights. After 5 minutes or so, I returned to the living room to find him still standing in the same spot, the lights draped across his arms. This is the first time I truly understood that, for my husband, Christmas Day was Chinese food and the movies. I tried to show him how to place the lights, but the tree’s needles were so sharp that I could barely stick my arms into it. I finished the decorating wearing industrial-strength rubber gloves. Fast forward several years, and we are continuing our tradition of lighting the tree and the menorah, only now we have 2 toddlers. I am shooting video while my husband is holding our daughter (3) and

our son (1), trying to teach them the Hebrew blessing that precedes the candle glow. In a sniffly little voice, our son (who often had a stuffed nose), cries, “I want to do it.” And so my husband holds his hand and together, they light each taper, it is the seventh night, so nearly all the candles are ablaze. There is a brief moment of sheer peacefulness and awe and then suddenly, my son reaches out to pick up the entire menorah, sending lit candles flying everywhere. The rest of the video is a little like The Blair Witch Project, the grainy video of college students lost in the woods—there is screaming (me) and crying (my son) and deep sorrow (the last image on the video is of my daughter, her head in her hands, stating, “You should never do that” to her brother). Somehow, through the years, we’ve managed to not burn anything down and to enjoy the customs of both of our traditions. And every night throughout this blessed season, our house sparkles with strands of blue and white bulbs, signifying that people who like lights live here. And these people love family and friends, and wish to celebrate all that is good and cheerful and giving in the world during this festive season. From our twinkling house to yours, happy holidays!

The public voice is the school district
Dear Editor: I am not sure what surprised me more at the Claremont School Board’s meeting last Thursday: that the school board would try to make simply owning a gun a disciplinary offense, or that the board president ignored input from staff and the public by skipping over the entire agenda item for public comment on that issue. Two “Core Values” of the district are: “Treat everyone with kindness, dignity, respect and equity,” and “Foster staff, parent, family, and community engagement.” I think you will agree that Board President Jeff Stark did neither. There were several individuals prepared to speak on the proposed new policies, one of which by its expressed terms would have banned gun ownership or even motorcycle riding by district staff. There were numerous other virtually unenforceable attempts at personal conduct regulation of employees, again off duty, including attempting to ban activity that was “dangerous” to “others.” When the meeting began, the board voted to table the agenda item discussing these policies until a future meeting. Board President Jeff Stark then did the unthinkable, at least to me, when he pretended that those people who wished to speak on that agenda item had nothing to say now that it was tabled. He skipped over the public comment agenda item, and ignored the staff and members of the public who came to speak on that topic. Should the board not have listened anyway? Would staff and public input not inform their decision-making in the future, and make it better and more responsive? Would the administration not want to hear what those same folks thought before going back and re-engineering the policy? Was that “treating people with dignity and respect,” and “fostering community engagement?” It stunned me to see the board ignore the effort made by members of the community and its own staff to come to their meeting to express their opinion on core policies of the district.

READERS’ COMMENTS
Simply because the board, at the last minute and without notice, decided to table a controversial policy change should not mean that they are disinterested in what people have to say on the topic. Are they never going to revisit this issue? Do they not intend to change the policy ever? The clear message I heard was that what “you” think is not important to “us” until “we” are ready to listen, after the policy has been drafted. That is not true input; it is tolerating a difference of opinion. School district policy should reflect the community in which it lives. Citizens, staff, parents and even students need to have input in what district policy dictates. The way current policy is created, in a closed environment by staff and then decreed from “onhigh,” is the wrong way to go about it. Claremont tries to be progressive in so many areas, yet its school board is the last bastion of insular, closedminded government in our community. interesting if the COURIER could publish images of Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma City), Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold (Columbine), Jared Loughner (Tucson), James Holmes (Aurora), Seung-Hui Cho (Virginia Tech), Wade Page (Sikh temple) and Anders Breivik (Norway) as terrorists/murderers are not as recognizable as you imply. And do you really think the Israelis have it figured out, launching rocket attacks at buildings associated with suspects that indiscriminately kill everyone in the general vicinity? Must be nice for you to not look like a terrorist.

Warren Buffet is rich, but he’s wrong
Dear Editor: Bob Gerecke (“Taxing the rich,” COURIER, November 28) lionizes Warren Buffett for agreeing with Democrats that the rich need to pay more. While Warren Buffett is a very smart investor, he is not an expert on tax policy nor is he well-informed on fiscal policy issues. The top 10 percent of income-earners in this country already pay over 70 percent of federal income taxes, and the top 1 percent (the rich) already pay almost 35 percent. Is that not enough? Almost half of those who work pay no federal income taxes. Is that fair? Is it healthy for so few to pay so much, and for so many to pay nothing? When almost half the population has no skin in the game, it is easy to demonize the rich—it’s called the “tyranny of the majority.” Liberal pundits say that Californians were “courageous” to approve Prop 30, but the truth is that a majority of the population voted to significantly increase taxes on a small minority for the benefit of themselves. That’s simply craven, and also very shortsighted. Demonizing and pillaging the rich is almost sure to backfire, to the detriment of us all. Upper-income taxpayers and most businesses in California now have a much bigger incentive to relocate to more tax-friendly states.

Camera misrepresentation
Dear Editor: Mr. Lyon, for one who claims to be misrepresented [COURIER, December 5], it may not help your case to make assumptions about other people. But if the certain portion of the population you lump me into is moderate Republican for the last 28 years, you sure do have me pegged. As to your distinction between an “Automated License Plate Reader” camera and officer, it is not very clear at all. The city news article of December 1 states that our cameras “track vehicles with lost or stolen plates and those linked with wanted persons, Amber Alerts or tagged as BOLO (Be on the Look Out).

California has become very unfriendly to the rich and to the owners of capital, and many are likely to decamp, leaving the state to impose higher tax rates on a shrinking tax base. The UK tried the same thing a few years ago, when it raised the top tax rate on millionaires to 50 percent. Now they find that two-thirds of those millionaires have disappeared, and tax collections from the remaining have dropped by $10 billion. The rich are not stupid and they will not consent to being fleeced; they can vote with their feet. A Los Angeles business owner today told me that “I am moving everything I can move out of California now and I cancelled negotiations on 3 California-based deals...I won’t be investing anything in California going forward. Every entrepreneur I know is doing the same thing. Prop 30 will be a disaster for the state, in my opinion.” Most important, however, is the fact that our trillion-dollar deficits and our weak recovery have much more to do with excessive spending than with tax rates that are too low. Entitlement spending is on an unsustainable course that no amount of tax hikes can fix. Looking to the rich to solve our problems is a fool’s game; if we don’t cut spending, we will all be ruined. Shame on Mr. Buffett for undermining his credibility for a few moments in the liberal limelight—I thought he was smarter than that.

John Irwin Trotter
The Reverend Dr. John “Irwin” Trotter, a longtime professor at the Claremont School of Theology, died on December 2, 2012 with his wife of 40 years, Gaynl, by his side. He was 85. He was born on June 19, 1927 in Los Angeles, the third child of Frederick and Hazel Trotter. Rev. Trotter spent his youth in several southern California locations. In 1944, he won the Lions Club California State Speech Contest and, after serving as student body president his senior year, graduated from Huntington Park High School in 1945. That same year, Rev. Trotter was drafted and served in the US Navy for 18 months. He struggled with the choice of whether to be a conscientious objector and later became a pacifist and promoter of peace. As a young man, he sensed a call to pastoral ministry. This came from hearing the Social Gospel preached and lived by his father and a strong sense of God’s presence in his life. Rev. Trotter believed peace, justice and reconciliation could become a reality in the post-World War II era and was convinced his best contribution toward accomplishing this was through the local church. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Occidental College in 1950, Rev. Trotter, a member of the Phi Beta Kappa Society, went on to earn a Bachelors of Divinity from Yale Divinity School in 1954 and a Doctor of Divinity from the University of the Pacific in 1970. Rev. Trotter was ordained a Methodist pastor in 1954 and served churches in Connecticut and throughout southern California. He was the founding pastor of Granada Hills United Methodist Church and was the Los An-

church. They had one daughter, Sheena, and 2 granddaughters, Katherine and Lauren, who brought Rev. Trotter much joy, as did his extended family of nieces and nephews. “He was a kind, gentle, witty, wise, courageous, humble, compassionate, inclusive man who was greatly loved and will be greatly missed,” said Rev. Trotter’s daughter, Sheena Trotter-Dennis. Friends and colleagues like Preston Price, who characterized Rev. Trotter as “a man of dichotomies,” also had high praise for him. “He was a great preacher who loved to listen; a passionate worker for justice who was eager to seek reconciliation; one called to serve beyond the local church and passionately in love with the local church; a man of many titles who valued being called ‘Irwin’; a teacher who insisted he was taught more by his students; a serious scholar with a wonderful sense of humor; a citizen of the world and a fervent family man; a world traveler who valued being home; a public man who practiced ongoing, deep personal spirituality; a possessor of prodigious skills whose day was full if he could sing a simple lullaby to his granddaughter,” Mr. Price conveyed. In 1984, Rev. Trotter was asked to teach preaching at the Claremont School of Theology. He held the Gerald H. Kennedy Professor of Homiletics chair until 2000. He enjoyed the challenge of working with pastoral and lay students to encourage them to find their own preaching style and voice. When he wasn’t working, Rev. Trotter enjoyed backpacking in the High Sierras, travel, listening to opera and classical music, reading and spending time with family. Throughout his life, he explored spirituality. A self-proclaimed skeptic, his faith was neither sentimental nor shallow. He was always seeking new ways to experience the “mystery.” In 2000, the Trotters moved to Ripon, California. There, Rev. Trotter enjoyed involvement with the Modesto First United Methodist Church, the Ripon Congregational Church and the Parkinson’s Support Group. For several years, he organized the Ripon Lions Club speech contest. In 2007, Rev. Trotter and his wife were honored with the “Bishop Melvin and Lucile Wheatley Lifetime of Justice Award.” He kept busy with several writing projects, keeping abreast of world affairs and scientific developments, supporting his wife’s endeavors and being a grandfather. Rev. Trotter is survived by his wife of 40 years, Gaynl; by his daughter Sheena and her husband, Pete Dennis; by his granddaughters, Katherine and Lauren; by 2 brothers and one sister; by many nieces and nephews and by countless friends. A service celebrating Rev. Trotter’s life will be held on Saturday, January 5, 2013 at 10 a.m. at Claremont School of Theology’s Kresge Chapel, 1325 N. College Ave. An additional service will be held on Monday, January 7, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. at First Congregational Church of Ripon, 100 N.

geles and Long Beach District Superintendent from 1967 to 1973. From 1972 to 1978, Rev. Trotter served as the director of the Conference Council on Ministries and assistant to the bishop for the Southern California-Arizona Annual Conference, serving under Bishop Charles Golden, the first african-american bishop in the annual conference. Rev. Trotter was involved in several interfaith dialogue groups and human relations councils. Serving the local church was deeply satisfying and challenging. As issues of race and changing demographics became the reality, he worked to encourage diversity and to reconcile people. Rev. Trotter’s patience, compassion, courage, progressiveness and theological and biblical depth gave him the tools necessary for serving in this way, according to family. In 1972, Rev. Trotter married Gaynl Stouffer, a partner who embodied his passion for peace, justice and the

COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff Get About driver Noureddine Bellili uses the wheelchair lift to help Bill Neal onto the bus Monday during an Enrichment Center Adult Day outing on Monday in Claremont. Mr. Bellili has been recognized by the staff of the Enrichment Center Adult Day Program for making an extra effort transporting the programʼs participants, including treating the whole group to ice cream.

Giving a little extra to help seniors get about town

C

laremont Get About driver Noureddine Bellili dedicates his time transporting seniors and the disabled to appointments, classes and beyond, while also working a second part-time job for the extra income.
For those of Claremont Senior Service’s Enrichment Center Adult Day program—3 days a week for seniors with mild to moderate dementia—Mr. Bellili somehow finds the time to be an ice cream man and friend as well as a driver during his 12-hour workdays. Mr. Bellili’s visits over the last 5 years have become an occasion to look forward to for the seniors and volunteers, and not just for the sweet treats Mr. Bellili dishes out on his own dime. The driver has become a source of companionship and friendship for the seniors who might have otherwise gone without. His attention to detail, especially in times of economic hardship, prompted program coordinator Angelika Pittet to submit Mr. Bellini for the COURIER’s search for the city’s “Good Neighbors.” “He is one of those people in our community that is going the extra mile,” Ms. Pittet said. “He loves our seniors and it comes through in all the little things that he does.” Ms. Pittet points out Mr. Bellili’s “ice cream so-

cials” with the group as a shining example. On a hot summer day 2 years ago, volunteers began joking around with Mr. Bellili on one of his usual drives, hinting at their desire for some ice cream to beat the summer scorcher. They were shocked when Mr. Bellili immediately took the request to heart, stopping at a local Rite Aid and purchasing 18 cones before dropping the seniors off at their intended destination. Such trips have become a staple, much to the program participants’ delight.

“He goes above and beyond,” said volunteer Nettie O’Brien, emphasizing the importance of providing these seniors, struggling with memory loss and health, with opportunities to improve their quality of life. “Mr. Bellini always provides a little something extra.”
While money may be hard for the driver to come by—working 2 jobs to help sustain not only his life in the states, but to help his family in Algeria—Mr. Bellili finds solace in giving back. “Many of them are struggling with their health, yet when you see them smile or when they say thank you....you cannot be rewarded more than that,” Mr. Bellili said. “It makes it all worth it.” Mr. Bellili emphasizes the importance that his culture puts on taking care of seniors. Unable to care

for his own parents 7,000 miles away, his work with Get About allows him to nurture that aspect of his upbringing, he says. Mr. Bellili moved to southern California from Algeria 17 years ago, with $500 dollars in his pocket and the dream of providing for the family he left behind. The transition proved difficult; beyond being oceans away from his loved ones, he struggled to grasp the language and start anew in a country totally unfamiliar to him. With the help of an acquaintance at his ESL classes in Pomona, Mr. Bellili found employment at Printing Works off Foothill and Garey, where he would first became acquainted with some of the seniors he would transport at Claremont Senior Services years later. Moving into a Pomona neighborhood that shares a border with Claremont, Mr. Bellini invested himself in his new life, throwing himself into his work and getting to know his customers. Unfortunately, after nearly a decade at the printing shop, financial hardships struck. Jobless, Mr. Bellili found himself questioning his search for the American Dream. “I didn’t know what to do,” Mr. Bellili reflected. “Back home in Algeria, I had a great job as the manager of the post office. Here, the post office wouldn’t even call me back. It was a huge struggle.” Applying anywhere he could, Mr. Bellili received

a call from Dianne Williams of Foothill Transit. Seven years later it remains a life-changing moment for him, providing him with the “freedom” he sought in moving to California. While hours at Get About have been cut due to economic difficulties and Mr. Bellili’s trips with the Adult Day program are now less frequent, the outings and occasional ice cream socials continue. Without his own family nearby, Mr. Bellili has come to see his clients as an extended family, a sentiment his clients share. And though his work days are long and money hard to come by, Mr. Bellili remains hopeful that his daily acts of kindness will continue to reap the rewards they promise. “It’s a payback,” he explained of his philosophy. “You take care of others in need and hopefully, someday, someone will do the same for me.”

Rio de Ojas:
Unique gift store offers river of possibilities to local shoppers

Mom & Pop

Claremont

R

ay and Terri Riojas changed more than locations when they moved their business from 4th Street to Harvard Avenue 3 years ago. They changed directions.
At The Hair Cottage, they spent their time snipping and styling hair, occasionally taking a break to sell something from their growing stock of merchandise. At their new business, Rio de Ojas—which means “river of leaves” and is a play on their last name—the situation is reversed. The Riojases still trade off doing hair at the single chair in the freestanding building they share with the knitting store Colors 91711, catering to a steady stream of longstanding customers. Their focus, however, has shifted to the vibrant collection of wares they have amassed. Rio de Ojas is teeming with Mexican folk art, including many pieces featuring religious iconography as well as the skeletons associated with Día de los Muertos or the Day of the Dead.

Among these are items crafted by their daughter Vanessa, like a life-sized paper mache skull hand-panted with crayonbright embellishments. Décor related to the Latin American holiday, which joyfully celebrates the annual return of the beloved dead, is growing in popularity, Ms. Riojas noted. “It’s really catching on because there’s just such a wonderful spirit and meaning behind it. It can seem a little weird at first, but it’s really easy to embrace,” she said. The store’s shelves are also filled with dinnerware, home décor, accessories and other products handcrafted by local artisans or sold by businesses with a conscience. Just how eclectic is this unique gift store? Where else in Claremont can you buy a paper mache statue of a skeletal, flower-bedecked Frida Kahlo; a serving platter crafted in the 400-year-old tradition of Guanajuato Majolica; ornamental glass hearts hand-blown in San Miguel Allende, Mexico; candles made in Thailand and Christmas ornaments in the shape of a taco or burrito?

COURIER photos/Steven Felschundneff Gloria Killian and Daisy Benson admire a Christmas ornament recently while shopping at Rio de Ojas in the Claremont Village. The women have been friends for some time and enjoy the selection at Rio de Ojas.

When Mr. and Ms. Riojas moved into their current location, it was a requirement of their lease that the space be devoted primarily to retail. They had already begun to grow their selection of gifts at The Hair Cottage and it was a direction they were ready to explore further. “Life just sort of evolved,” Ms. Riojas said. “Moving here has been a dream come true for us in many ways. It has allowed us to start over, to examine what we care about and love and put it into our business.” The Riojases—who have been married for 37 years, have 2 children and boast 4 grandchildren—are used to evolving. They met in college, where Mr. Riojas was studying biomed and Ms. Rojas was pursuing nursing. After graduation, Mr. Riojas worked for 3 years at Casa Colina as a physical therapist before realizing he was in the wrong field. He decided to go back to school to become a hairstylist, something he had wanted to do since he was 9. Ms. Riojas was a nurse for 10 years before opting to join Mr. Riojas in his new profession. In 1981, the couple opened The Hair Cottage, where they worked side-by-

side. Thirty-one years later, they’re still joined at the hip. How do they make it work? “I don’t think there’s a big secret. If you get mad, you just get over it,” Ms. Riojas said. “We also have real common ground,” Mr. Riojas added. “We both have the same kind of mission.” That common vision involves bringing a bit of the world to town. Ms. Riojas is originally from Kansas and moved to Claremont in 1962 so her father could attend the Claremont School of Theology. The Mexican and Latin American part of their aesthetic stems from Mr. Riojas’ background. A second-generation southern Californian, he has “colorful family stories from Spain to Texas land grants to Pancho Villa connections.” The Riojases’ love of Mexican culture deepened during trips taken to Mexico, including a visit to Oaxaca as well as one they undertook for a wedding in Tepotzlan. “I wanted to create a place you could go and feel like you’re transported to a small town in Italy or Spain, where you

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, you may call (714) 5731965 or visit this Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 2012-2436. 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. Date: 12/7/2012 WE ARE ATTEMPTING TO COLLECT A DEBT, AND ANY INFORMATION WE OBTAIN WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE.
