ADVENTURES
IN HAIKU
Esalen sun rise Human Potential Movement Big Sur welcomes you
—James Manifold Haiku submissions should reflect upon life or events in Claremont. Please email entries to editor@claremont-courier.com.

An unwelcome welcoming
Dear Editor: Yesterday afternoon a friend and I decided to go for a walk at a location we have been enjoying for years. Upon our arrival at approximately 5:20 p.m., we noticed posted signs regarding a new parking fee to be imposed effective April 1, 2013. As we approached, we commented to each other about all of the improvements in the area and how nice it looked compared to our previous visits. Admittedly, we have not used the trail in some time. We continued through the gate and proceeded on our hike. Along the way, we stopped to look at a baby rattle snake and also to rest and to enjoy the view at top of the trail. These events proved to be a mistake because when we returned to leave, several police officers were at the gate issuing tickets for not leaving the park before closing. There were at least 50 hikers in line to receive the ticket. As the sun went down and it got darker and colder, they called for reinforcements to help move the line along. We counted 7 officers involved in this ridiculous show. Yes, there is a sign at the gate with hours posted. But really? A $50 ticket for stopping to enjoy the view and being 10 minutes late? We won’t be using the trail again. Perhaps they should close the park at 5:30 p.m. if they want you to be out by 6:30 p.m.. In fact, there is a good chance I won’t be in Claremont any time soon. Do they really need the money that badly? Ex-Claremont consumer,

Guns in the world
Dear Editor: I am concerned about the opposition to gun control and am aware of the argument that it is a Constitutional right to bear arms.

Production
Ad Design Jenelle Rensch Page Layout Kathryn Dunn, Jenelle Rensch

That provision in the Constitution has to do with the militia, and now with police protection I do not believe it applies to the general population. Also laws need to be studied and contextualized. I also am aware of the statement, “Guns don’t kill, people do.” Unfortunately, a weapon is often needed and, when one that can kill many in a matter of seconds is available, it is often the choice made. As a missionary in Japan for 40 years I can testify to the safety of living in a nation that has strict gun laws. Hunting rifles are allowed, but all other guns are not. When I was the director of a telephone counseling service in Tokyo, I often took a night shift, which meant that I arrived at the nearest station to my home at 11 p.m. I had a 20 minute walk with no fear. The number of deaths by guns is minuscule compared to our record in the US, which is more than those killed in battle. Do Japanese gangsters acquire guns? Yes, of course. But the number of guns in the country is very small. Police carry guns that are covered so it is difficult to grab one. They are seldom used and when they are the public protests. I don’t believe we ever had news of police wrongfully killing innocent victims. In war, the Japanese were armed and committed terrible crimes. In last night’s news I heard that over 200 of our soldiers in Korea have committed terrible crimes and are often not punished as they are tried by the military, not the Korean government. The crimes are probably often not by guns but are violent. We teach soldiers to be violent, a necessity in war. In a conversation with Norwegian friends when they were here last summer, I learned that the number of deaths by guns in Norway is one-tenth per capita of that in the US. The news about the killing of many by a young man in Norway was a rare occurrence.

CORRECTION In the March 22nd edition of the COURIER, the Our Town titled “CMC to replace Ducey Gymnasium” incorrectly states that the new gymnasium will be 13,000 square feet. It should read that the new athletic complex will be 130,000 square feet. We apologize for the error.

Arborist to make call on fate of Claremont Club trees

T

he Claremont City Council reached an agreement Tuesday night that was palatable to both sides of a longstanding debate over the Claremont Club neighborhood’s pine trees and the city’s tree replacement policy.

While 44 trees have the potential to go should a certified arborist deem it necessary, the city will not move forward in changing its tree replacement policies as they stand. “We must balance between safety in the neighborhood because of the trees versus the preservation of those trees,” said Mayor Opanyi Nasiali. “I think we all agree mature trees are to be preserved unless they are causing a problem.” For years, the city has combated structural damage caused by pines in the neighborhood—including those found on Shenandoah Drive, Davenport, Elmhurst, Gettysburg and Stanislaus circles. This summer, the city will move forward with a $167,060 project to more extensively repair damaged hardscape. At the same time, staff hopes to evaluate the roots of the designated “problem trees” and determined those that need to go. Up to 44 mature trees might be cut down, costing a total of $38,060, if deemed necessary by a certified arborist. In order to prepare for future incidents in the neighborhood, city administrators also recommended adopting a hardscape repair and tree replacement program, which would have trees evaluated every

4 years and removed if necessary. Despite the program’s aim of anticipating future problems, residents took issue with the program’s lack of adherence to the city’s alreadyCITY adopted policies when COUNCIL it comes to the trees. Claremont resident Ray Fowler brought up the city’s sustainability plan, which states that the city will “protect, improve and expand our urban forest.” “It’s awfully hard for me to fathom how the proposed tree replacement program is in any way going to ‘protect, improve and expand our urban forest,’” Mr. Fowler said. Susan Schenk of Sustainable Claremont, who is a professor and botanist at the Claremont Colleges, pointed out that trees should be evaluated by a professional on a case-by-case basis. “You can’t really make a blanket opinion now that in 5 years if there is some damage to a street it can’t be fixed without damaging the tree,” Ms. Schenk said. “You really need to keep to the tree policy guidelines and have an arborist look at the trees. It is well worth the money spent for our city.” Members of the Club’s homeowners association agreed that a certified arborist should be the one to determine a tree’s removal. However, they were also of the belief that the practice of root pruning is not an acceptable way to mitigate the damage caused by these trees. “At best, [root pruning] compromises stability and, at worst, it compromises [the tree’s] health,” said Dennis Vlasich, president of the HOA board. “We do not want any more trees to be removed than

is absolutely necessary and we believe that the city staff’s plan to assess each tree, not just those on Shenandoah, to determine if it should be determined and replaced is reasonable and responsible.” The council struck a compromise. Council members unanimously agreed to move forward with the slurry project and the examination of the 44 designated trees by a certified arborist. Council members agreed that the trees should be removed if deemed necessary. On the other hand, the council did not agree with the Hardscape and Tree Replacement program as written, believing that trees should only be removed if a certified arborist determined that a tree had sustained significant damage as a result of root pruning. “You put the policy in jeopardy if you make exceptions for certain neighborhoods,” said Councilmember Corey Calaycay. “To me, it needs to be consistent with whatever the policy is.” Claremont to move money to ‘West’ The council’s handling of the tree policy was one of several council decisions appreciated by Claremont residents present at Tuesday’s meeting. In addition, the council approved a 5-year contract with Bank of the West. Occupy Claremont members were pleased with the decision after having pushed the city to move its money from Bank of America to a local credit union since early 2012. The city expects to save up to $14,000 annually beginning with the 2013-2014 fiscal year. “How’s that for a win-win situation?” said Karl Hilgert.

City officials initiated their request for a new banking institution in December as directed by the council in April. A long list of banking institution requirements were drawn up, including input from members of Occupy Claremont. Among requirements was at least a satisfactory ranking as determined by the California Reinvestment Act, which encourages banks to help meet the needs of low income borrowers and to reduce discriminatory lending practices. Of the 11 banks that responded to the city’s request for bids, Bank of the West “most completely meets the requirements,” according to Finance Director Adam Pirrie to the agreement of council members. “We wanted to commit to making sure we were doing something safe with the peoples’ money but at the same time doing something that was more sustainable and ethical than what we’ve done in the past,” said Councilmember Sam Pedroza. “Like the gentleman said, this is a win-win situation.” Gun control issue coming back The gun issue has not fully played out at city council, at least not just yet. After being conspicuously left off Tuesday night’s agenda, the topic will be back at a future meeting. On March 15, the council listened to nearly 2 hours of back-and-forth debate on whether or not the city should adopt a stance on Dianne Feinstein’s proposed Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 and on the Mayors Against Illegal Guns petition.

Will new lot finally solve Wilderness parking issues?

T

he Claremont Hills Wilderness Parl parking lot is now open, but according to weekend visitors, the verdict is still out.
The city debuted the newly expanded parking lot last weekend to mixed reviews. For the most part, feedback has been positive from locals and park regulars concerned with overcrowding, according to Eric Flores and Kay Dorn-Giarmoleo, city recreation leaders on hand at the park’s entrance to answer the questions of curious hikers last weekend. “Residents around here have been really happy, because there has been such an influx of traffic,” Ms. Dorn-Giarmoleo said. The pair noted the dramatic increase in park visitors over the past couple years. “When we were in high school, there was no one here,” Ms. Dorn-Giarmoleo said. She speculates that word of mouth and information posted online has increased its popularity. “More people know it’s here now.” Brian and Missy Tucker say the situation at the Wilderness Loop has gotten so bad that they won’t even go up the trail. They start their daily 4-to-5 mile jaunt at their Miramar Avenue home and walk up Mills Avenue, but bypass the park entrance.

“It’s like Disneyland,” Ms. Tucker said of the crowding at the park. In December 2011, the Claremont City Council approved the expansion of the north lot at the end of Mills Avenue in an attempt to address the growing popularity of the park and the traffic and safety concerns that followed. With the approved expansion, the lot has grown from its original 20 parking spaces to about 157 spots, with the area of the lot having grown to about 1.45 acres from its previous thin slice along the hillside. While some have started taking advantage of the new north lot, there were still plenty of spots left open while, down the road, the south lot was full and about 30 cars were lined up on nearby Pomello Drive last week. The problem grew worse on Saturday and Sunday, the park’s 2 most popular days. According to Human Services Manager Bill Pallotto, the cars lined Mills Avenue all the way down to Alamosa Drive. Because of the rows of cars taking up the edges of a narrow street leading up to the park entrance, hikers could be seen using the roadway to access the park. As “no parking” restrictions are placed along Mt. Baldy and Mills, some residents fear that the parking problem at the Wilderness Park will only be relocated, especially as paid parking restrictions go into effect next month. On April 1, hikers will be required to pay to park, $3 for 4 hours. They also have the option of an annual parking permits at $100 for the year, $75 if purchased in April, $50 if purchased in July, or $25 if purchased in October. To date, 125 annual permits have been purchased in addition to 1400 free resident passes obtained, according to Mr. Pallotto. Not all are willing to deal with the fees or deal with the traffic. The Tuckers admit if they decide to go to for a hike, they choose to enter the park through alternative entrances at Sycamore Canyon Park or through the Thompson Creek Trail. Claremont residents may pick up a free pass to park in the south lot at city hall or the Hughes Center, with proof of residency. West Covina residents Joe and Wendi Solari used for their hike last week, but say they don’t mind parking elsewhere when the paid parking goes into effect.

COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff Brian and Missy Tucker walk along the new pedestrian path leading from the south lot to the new north lot at the Wilderness Park. New parking restrictions went into effect last Friday and city planners hope it will reduce congestion around the park entrance.

“It’s the reason we are out here in the first place,” Ms. Solari said. The metered parking and the traffic won’t stop them from visiting their favorite hiking destination. “We don’t mind it,” Mr. Solari said. “We enjoy the challenging elevations, and the people here are really friendly.” Others feel differently. While much of the feedback has been positive, a few hikers have been vocal about their displeasure, calling out the city on targeting “lower socioeconomic groups,” according to Mr. Flores and Ms. Dorn-Giarmoleo. With hikers seen walking in the middle of the roadway because of the cars blocking the sides of Mills, others worry that there is a deeper problem that needs to be addressed. Mr. Pallotto assures that park rangers will be moni-

toring the problem in the coming weeks and the city will assess whether or not further measures need to be taken. For now, there are no set plans for further parking restrictions or expansions. “There has been some confusion on the parking lot. A lot of people didn’t realize it was open,” Mr. Pallotto explained. The city’s first course of action is to inform the public about the parking changes. “We are realizing that a lot of the [park] users are from other areas, so they weren’t aware,” Mr. Pallotto said. “We are going to continue to educate them [about the changes], see how it goes and adjust accordingly.”

Wednesday, March 20 A bicyclist was transported to the hospital after a run-in with a vehicle going down Indian Hill Boulevard early Wednesday evening. Both were traveling south when the bicyclist made a hand gesture signaling he was going to turn left in front of the car. Unfortunately, the driver did not see the gesture or did not respond quickly enough. The vehicle and the bike collided during the lane change. Luckily, the bicyclist did not sustain significant injuries, according to Lt. Ciszek, but was transported to the hospital for a swollen ankle. Thursday, March 21 While students at Danbury Elementary hurried home from school, a crook made his way to school. Danbury was targeted in an electronics burglary between 3 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20 and 8 a.m. the following day. Three computers were stolen. There are no suspects. Friday, March 22 At least 24-year-old Tommy Dixon got a workout in before spending downtime behind bars. Police caught up with Mr. Dixon at the college dorms off Sixth and College Way, where he was found running up and down the hallways of the

Spring has sprung, and so have sprinkler bandits
A handful of Claremont residents have a legitimate reason for letting their lawns go brown. A series of sprinkler burglaries are leaving several Claremonters’ pockets, and lawns a little dry. Seven brass sprinkler burglaries were reported between Wednesday, March 20 and Sunday, March 24 with an estimate of more than $300 in losses, according to Lieutenant Mike Ciszek. Thieves also targeted homes in the 500 and 600 block of Bluefield Drive, 2000 block of Kemper opened, but property loss is unknown at this time. Any information on this crime should be reported to the Claremont police at 399-5411. **** Donald Tafoya, 24, of La Verne left a trail for police officers who followed in pursuit on Monday. Officers attempted to stop Mr. Tafoya, who was riding a bicycle nearby Arrow and Towne Avenue, because of a traffic violation. Instead of stopping, Mr. Tafoya ditched the bike and ran into the nearby 99 Cent store. There was no shopping for Mr. Tafoya. He quickly made his way to a back door and took off, jumping into a series of backyards before police caught up with him. Mr. Tafoya had an outstanding warrant from Arcadia police. He also left beAvenue and 500 block of Charleston Drive, all located above Base Line Road. To help prevent this type of crime, Lt. Ciszek suggests residents install floodlights high enough so that criminals cannot tamper with them. Sometimes crooks will unscrew the lights and return to commit a crime, he explained. He also encourages residents to engage in Neighborhood Watch, looking out for any suspicious activity and reporting it to the police at 399-5411. hind a trail of hypodermic needles for police. He was arrested for the discarded drug paraphernalia, in addition to his warrant. Tuesday, March 26 On Tuesday evening, the Trader Joe’s parking lot became an impromptu retail location. Atlantis McClellan, 40, of Sherman Oaks and a male friend were attempting to sell electronics from the trunk of their sedan. Police took an interest in an item not up for sale. Ms. McClellan was found in possession of methamphetamine and a meth pipe. She was arrested. Her friend, who was on probation for burglary, was questioned and released.

dorms, according to Lt. Ciszek. It appears a little extra something gave him the energy. Mr. Dixon, who is not a college student, was found to be under the influence and arrested for public intoxication. He was released to run as he pleased after sobering up. Saturday, March 23 It’s still unclear as to what 26-year-old Matthew Sullivan of Granite Bay might have been looking for in a set of bushes he was digging through at Jaeger Park, but police found a surprise. After questioniong Mr. Sullivan, officers arrested him for 3 outstanding warrants. Matters were made worse for Mr. Sullivan when he was found in possession of heroin during his booking, according to Lt. Ciszek. He was arrested for the warrants, as well as for possession of a controlled substance and for bringing narcotics into the jail. Monday, March 25 Western Dental is yet another Claremont business that has been targeted in a recent chain of commercial break-ins. An unknown burglar entered the business, located at 750 S.

Vroom! Oakmont kids race through reading challenge

O

akmont kids are like an open book. The students attend a school that’s known as “a reading school” and zip through books for assignments and for fun.
Most recently, they made good on a collective vow to read 20 minutes a day for 20 days. All that page-turning paid off when the students, nearly 100 percent of whom participated, were named the winners of Lefty’s Reading Challenge. If you don’t already know, Lefty is the mascot of the Auto Club Speedway Kids Club, an anthropomorphic automobile who urges kids to have fun while learning. Their win was acknowledged with a surprise visit from NASCAR driver Kyle Larson, who showed up in his racecar and stayed to read aloud from the book Hot Rod Hamster. The kids cheered when they saw the 20-year-old speedway sensation pull up in an Auto Club Speedway replica NASCAR. Principal Stacey Stewart, who says she is “super proud” of her students, had a Cinderella moment when she was whisked away for a ride in the racecar, with Mr. Larson performing a neat donut on the lawn of the school. Afterwards, he stayed on hand as students posed for pictures with the racecar

and asked questions about how Mr. Larson got his start in the thrilling sport. Oakmont third grader Zachary Martin took advantage of the reading challenge to finish The Lightning Thief, the first installation of the popular Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. The book was good and so was the awards ceremony, which he said, “felt happy.” “I liked it when he revved his engine,” Zachary said, making a “vroom” engine sound.

Along with an upcoming pizza party and the chance to attend a race at the local speedway, the school won another prize that librarian Connie McIntire is particularly excited about: a $2000 check to be used for the purchase of more books for Oakmont classrooms and the library. Ms. McIntire organized the event and kept track of the students’ reading logs. Ms. McIntire will be able to use the funds toward a wish-list that includes

The council opted to hold off on a vote because Councilmember Sam Pedroza was absent. Though the vote was expected to take place on Tuesday, it never happened. The discussion was left off the agenda after Senate President Harry Reid dropped Sen. Feinstein’s assault ban off his Senate gun violence bill on March 18. Several residents came forward during public comment to voice their displeasure. Claremont resident Charles Bayer pointed out that only one portion of the bill collapsed. He strongly recommended that the city still take a stance in supporting Mayors Against Illegal Guns. By request of Mayor Pro Tem Joe Lyons, the Mayors for Illegal Guns petition will be brought back to council for discussion. Councilmember Sam Pedroza stated he is not in favor of the topic being reintroduced at council. Instead, he urged former mayor Larry Schroeder to add his name to the petition on his own accord if he so chooses. “The mayor has every right to sign it or not sign it,” said Mr. Pedroza, suggesting instead that the council direct staff to set up community dialogues for these kinds of broad discussions. Despite such sentiments, Mayor Opanyi Nasiali allowed Mr. Lyons to give his direction to staff with agreement from Councilmember Corey Calaycay. Mr. Calaycay thought it was only fair that every council member be allowed to bring back for discussion what they saw fit. “When I say that I support my colleagues First Amendment rights...I have to stand by that,” Mr. Calaycay explained. However, Mr. Calaycay advised City Manager Tony Ramos to bring back a discussion on policy and whether or not the council should be discussing and voting on these types of national issues. City Manager Tony Ramos confirmed that both topics would be placed on future council agendas, but neither would be scheduled for the next council meeting on Tuesday, April 9. —Beth Hartnett

Cheerleaders hard work pays off as honors roll in for El Roble squad

S

ome hardworking kids have given El Roble Intermediate School something to cheer about.

The El Roble Cheerleading Squad recently won the Cheer Pros State Championship at the Ontario Citizens Bank Arena, and then went on to be named Best of the West in the subsequent finals held at Cal State Long Beach. The proud 7th and 8th grade girls came home from the championship wearing sweatshirts commemorating the competition and carrying a banner to hang in the gym. “They were very excited. It was a good moment for them,” said cheer advisor Vanessa Mejia-Rapp. Ms. Mejia-Rapp’s daughter happens to be on the squad. “It’s kind of nice to share that with her this year,” she said. She emphasizes that the win represents a lot of hard work on the part of all of the girls. They hone their cheerleading skills 2 days a week during the year, usually for about 2-and-a-half hours followed by 30 minutes of tumbling. During the lead-up to a competition, they generally add a Saturday practice as well. “Cheerleading is definitely different than it was back when I was in high school. There is a lot more gymnastics and stunts,” said Ms. Mejia-Rapp, an El Roble technology teacher whose own background is in dancing. “We’ve got girls doing back-handsprings, round-off back handsprings and multiple handsprings as well.” El Roble Cheer has a winning tradition and,

Photo special to the COURIER The El Roble Cheerleading Squad took first place in the Cheer Pros State Championship

though last year’s squad didn’t win Best of the West, they also took home Cheer Pros State Championship honors. Along with undertaking 5 to 8 competitions each year, the cheerleaders root for El Roble’s flag football and basketball teams. They also don their uniforms for pep rallies and any kind of school spirit day. It’s a very competitive team, Ms. Mejia-Rap said, but the competitions offer more than the opportunity to vie against their peers. “I think that you can always learn from whatever competitors have to offer. It’s great exposure,” she explained. “You can always improve on your routine and showmanship.” Next up for El Roble Cheer is team tryouts for incoming 7th graders and returning 8th graders, set for April 3, 4 and 5.

Kiss this guy!
by Mellissa Martinez

T

here comes a time in every mother’s life when she makes that fatal error and belts out a tune in a car full of kids, just to have her teenager glance with a condescending and embarrassed stare: “…uh, mom…that’s not how it goes.”

LEX
IN THE

Yes, of course, we moms aren’t as dumb as we might seem. We know when the words don’t quite match the song, but we’ve got babies, work and soccer schedules to worry about. Why stress about a few unknown phrases? Well, fellow moms, it turns out that we are not the only ones to make this mistake. Many people botch song lyrics on a regular basis. In fact, the practice is so common, that it has a name—mondegreen. Linguists, it appears, do have a sense of humor. There are websites and entire book chapters devoted to these silly slips of the tongue. The word ‘mondegreen’ was first coined in Harper’s Magazine in the early 1950s, when the author described her childhood misunderstanding of a poem that her mom often read to her. When her mom read, “They had slain the Earl O’Moray and laid him on the green,” the young girl believed, wholeheartedly, that they had slain Earl O’Moray and Lady Mondegreen. Hence, a new linguistic term was born. A ‘mondegreen’ is a word or phrase that results from a mishearing of something said and often sung. If you think hard, you probably have mondegreens from childhood hanging around in your subconscious. As a young girl, I thought The Beatles sang: “Well, she

CITY
looked at me, and all I could see, in the parking lot, I fell in love with her.” There was also Jimi Hendrix’s confusing, “scuse me while I kiss this guy,” and Bob Dylan’s, “The answer, my friends...” became “The ants are my friends, they’re blowing in the wind.” Let’s face it, Elton John is responsible for a whole slew of mondegreens: “Hold me closer, Tony Danza; Goodbye yellow brick road, where the dark clouds inside of the house (I still don’t know what that song says); I’m a rocket man, burning all the trees of every lawn;” and on of my all time favorites, “She’s got electric boobs, a mohair suit, you know I read it in a magazine!” Linguist, Stephen Pinker, writes about mondegreens in his book The Language Instinct. He points out that they conform to English phonology, syntax and vocabulary. Apparently, listeners lock in to a set of words that fit the sound and often go together regardless of plausibility. Although most mondegreens are generally less plau-

sible than the original sentence or lyric, once we have them stuck in our heads, they’re hard to shake. When a mondegreen from a word or phrase has been around long enough, it has the potential of becoming an eggcorn. This is a lot like a pun, but unlike a punster, the speaker usually isn’t aware that he’s making a mistake. The word ‘eggcorn’ was coined by a linguist in 2003, when he saw that an unsuspecting woman had written ‘acorn’ as ‘eggcorn.’ It refers to the idiosyncratic substitution of a word or phrase with one that sounds identical. Some examples are ‘curled in a feeble position,’ ‘ex-patriot,’ ‘for all intensive purposes’ and ‘in lame man’s terms.’ Linguist and professor, Geoffrey Pullum, writes, “It would be so easy to dismiss eggcorns as signs of illiteracy and stupidity, but they are nothing of the sort. They are imaginative attempts at relating something heard to lexical material already known.” Yes, they may be ‘mindbottling’ and ‘jar-dropping,’ but remember when incorrect words or misspellings are used widely and by many, they have the potential of making their way into standard English. The next time your kids give you an eyebrow raise for singing out loud, tell them that it takes the ‘upmost courage’ to sing out loud in a car full of teens and they ought to be listening with ‘wrapped attention.’ Also, you can rest assured that they too will have their day—nobody escapes using eggcorns and mondegreens, or turning into their mother, for that matter.

Shelve the candy hunt

Dear Editor: As a citizen of Claremont, I am totally baffled that the city would allow a candy hunt. I have never heard of this politically correct phrase before with regard to spring and Easter—excuse the horrific word “Easter”—celebration. The city should not allow a bunch of kids to run around ruining the grass at Memorial Park, which could get messed

up plus some of it may have to be replanted after the candy is discovered. Whatever happened to Claremont’s sustainability issue? Besides children should not be eating candy. They should be eating only plant-based foods from local farms. Where the heck are their parents regarding this issue? Haven’t they heard about the obesity problems in this country? Why not ditch the whole thing and not spend the money and put it to more important use. The city is hurting for money and it

should get rid of the so-called “Spring Celebration.” Better yet, set aside the money or donate it to the Occupy Claremont people to use however they see fit.

True value

7

Dear Editor: Admittedly, I’ve never been one to get involved with local politics. However, when I was notified of the possible removal of many of the 110 mature pine trees in The Club neighborhood, I felt compelled to act. Much of my concern sprung from the fact that the home my husband and I purchased in The Club in 2006 has decreased in worth by more than 40 percent following the economic downturn that began in 2008. One of the reasons we chose to buy a home in this community was its rich canopy of mature trees. The US Forest Service, for example, says healthy, mature trees add an average of 10 percent to a property’s value. I first spoke out at the city’s Tree Committee meeting on January 28 simply because my family cannot afford to lose any further. But what I quickly discovered is that this issue is about so much more. What is truly at stake here is “value.” The value of wildlife. The value of clean air. The value of shade. The value of our homes. The value of our community. The value of our city’s urban forest. Myself and another concerned residents walked the streets, talked to our neighbors and found many of them felt the same way. In just a few hours on a Sunday, we collected 43 signatures on a petition urging the city to uphold its current tree policy, which calls for a tree’s removal only when its health or stability is jeopardized to repair hardscape. These initial efforts eventually led to

READERS’ COMMENTS
the formation of the grassroots effort Protect Claremont Trees and the collection of nearly 250 signatures from residents throughout the city, who believed the proposed “Tree Replacement Program” would set a damaging precedent for the future of Claremont’s mature trees. On Tuesday night, the Claremont City Council voted unanimously to instruct the Community and Human Services Department to adhere to city’s Tree Policy Guidelines, not only in the initial phase of hardscape and tree maintenance for The Club neighborhood, but in all future phases as well. On behalf of myself and my fellow community members who devoted their time and energy to this cause, I sincerely thank Mayor Opanyi Nasiali and our city council members for listening to concerns on both sides and thoughtfully considering this complex issue until the late hour of 11 p.m. By continuing to uphold their important role as “guardians” of Claremont’s forest, it reinforces the multi-faceted value of trees to our city. What I have realized is that this is the first step toward protection and preservation of Claremont’s mature trees as well as saplings that are just beginning to spread their branches. In nurturing our urban forest to best preserve it for generations, we need to ask: What constitutes an appropriate street tree? How do we account for the inadequacy of relying on individual homeowners to properly water city trees? What are appropriate standards for tree trimming? How might we restore the position of arborist to the city’s staff to ensure the strategic, long-term development and protection of our treescape amidst hardscape repair? As the mother of 2 young boys, I feel an important obligation to do whatever I can to make certain the Claremont they grow up in and call home will always remain a city of trees. I invite other concerned residents to join us in doing everything we can to make this possible. There is still much to be done.

Just the facts, ma’am?

Dear Editor: The following 3 paragraphs are excerpts from the ACLU of Arizona webpage. “The court ruled that the NVRAmandated mail-in federal voter registration form must be accepted by Arizona election officials, even if the applicants do not provide the US citizenship documents required by Proposition 200.” “The rejected proof of citizenship provision was one component of Proposition 200, which passed in 2004. That provision required documentary proof of citizenship for all new voter registrants in Arizona and has resulted in the rejection of tens of thousands of voter registration forms.”

“The court’s decision in the Arizona case recognizes Congress’ broad powers to govern registration procedures for federal elections, and will enable poor, elderly and minority voters to once again avail themselves of voter registration drives and the mailin registration process without the cost, procedural hassles and privacy concerns that go along with mailing in copies of birth certificates or other evidence of citizenship.” The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging the informed and active participation of citizens in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy. Ellen Taylor, as the VP of the LWV of the Claremont Area it would be wise in the future to be more specific when you urge voters to agree with the LWV positions. Important facts are missing in most of your letters. You write often to the COURIER about issues dealing with voters’ rights, air quality, equality, women’s rights and gun control. I don’t believe you are non-partisan. You clearly have a personal agenda and are relentless in steering your “claims” without including “facts.” Without specific facts to substantiate your claims you are perceived as being insignificant and irresponsible. What was challenged in Arizona has to do with proof of US citizenship and proper qualifications to vote. Many Americans believe we should prove to be “non-felon” United States citizens in order to vote. People rarely want to make voting unavailable to the elderly, poor and minority, however, many of us believe all voters should be United States citizens. Dennis McDonough

Barbara Heavenston
Mother, friend, world traveler
Barbara Jane Palmer Heavenston of Claremont, a resident of Mt. San Antonio Gardens, died Saturday, March 16, 2013. She was 86. Mrs. Heavenston was born June 10, 1926 in Upland, California to Donovan and Doris Palmer. She graduated from Chaffey High School and Pomona College. She and Don Heavenston were married on July 2, 1954. For many years, the couple owned and operated a Mobil Oil distributorship in Pomona. After her husband’s death in 1977, Mrs. Heavenston continued running the business alongside their son, Bill Heavenston. Mrs. Heavenston enjoyed playing violin in the Claremont Symphony Orchestra for more than 30 years. In retirement, she participated in the Claremont Golf Course Women’s Golf Club and volunteered with the Red Cross and Harvey Mudd College. Joyce Sokolowski is one of the many friends who bonded with Mrs. Heavenston over games of golf. “Barbara added a lot to a lot of people’s lives,” she said. “She enjoyed her life.” She was an enthusiastic traveler, who toured through Europe and Scandinavia and enjoyed getaways in Hawaii with her husband. Later, she visited with family in far-flung locations ranging from Oregon to Texas and from Poland to Japan. Several years ago, she undertook a tour of the Panama Canal, another cherished memory. Mrs. Heavenston was also an avid reader and was especially fond of biographies, autobiographies and travel books, which she devoured when preparing for a trip abroad. Later, when her eyesight had deteriorated due to macular degeneration, she enjoyed many recorded books courtesy of the Braille Institute. Diane Briner shared a long and dear friendship with Mrs. Heavenston, which began when the 2 women joined the Claremont Symphony in 1967. Ms. Briner was a violinist as well and so they became stand-mates. Their friendship revolved around their shared love of music, with Mrs. Heavenston and Mrs. Briner regularly heading out to hear the Los Angeles Philharmonic or take in a concert at the Hollywood Bowl. They also shared many games of golf and many picnics. “Everyone should be so lucky to have such a friend,” Mrs. Briner said. “She had a great sense of humor, she was adventuresome and music was so much a part of our lives. We had so many good years together.” Mrs. Heavenston’s family would like to thank hospice and the staff of the Lodge and the Health Center at Mount San Antonio Gardens for the love and

Community gets On the Same Page with community read
The Friends of the Claremont Library has announced Susan Straight’s novel Take One Candle Light a Room as its 2013 selection for the citywide “On the Same Page” (OTSP) reading program. The goal of this annual event is to engage community residents in a public discussion regarding a work of fiction, or non-fiction, that forms the foundation for a common experience and encourages the pleasure of reading. Selections from previous years have included The Soloist by Steve Lopez, Into the Beautiful North by Lluis Alberto Urrea, and last year’s The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. Award-winning novelist Susan Straight has published 7 novels. Take One Candle Light a Room was the recipient of the Lannan Prize; Highwire Moon was a finalist for the National Book Award in 2001 and win-

ner of the Gold Medal for fiction from the San Francisco-based Commonwealth Club; and A Million Nightingales was a finalist for the Los Angeles Book Prize in 2006. Additional awards—garnered for her short stories—include an O. Henry Award in 2007 and an Edgar Award in 2007. Ms. Straight sets all her novels in the fictional town of Rio Seco, California, a loose parallel to her hometown of Riverside. Reflecting on her choice of setting she quotes fellow native California writer Joan Didion, “You have to pick the places you don’t walk away from.” In addition to a full-time job as a professor of creative writing at University of California, Riverside, Ms. Straight is also a regular contributor of essays to KCET.org. Copies of Take One Candle Light a Room will be available for sale at the Friends of the Claremont Library Annual Book Sale, to be held April 18, 19 and 20.

Abundance
by Jan Wheatcroft

W

hen I have been working at home for a long period of time making art, I find that taking a workshop somewhere else breathes fresh air into my life and into my work. As I have written before, I like to work with a specific teacher, Ron Prokrasso from Santa Fe, who teaches printing classes.
Last year I struggled in Idyllwild. mired in my own angst. about my process but still found it very beneficial. This year, I found that he was teaching for a week in Ojai, just above Santa Barbara in the foothills and I signed up for the workshop, which filled up immediately. It provided me with an entirely different experience; one that turned out to be much more positive. I had 5 full days of intense work along with 6 other artists intent on inhaling the whole creative experience. As always, our teacher was in top form but this time there were a few new additions that were more than welcomed. The workshop was held in Linda Taylor’s studio,The Spotted Dog Studio, in a lovely residential section of Ojai at the base of the foothills. The days were very warm, quite a surprise for March, and the skies were bright and clear bringing those mountains into my lap. The colors blue, purple and brown predominated. As it was Linda’s studio, we had the pleasure of a second teacher to guide and help us. The studio is larger than my entire living space and is so full of everything a printer could desire that the walls virtually groan with their loads. Linda has organized everything in drawers, boxes and on shelves—anywhere that can contain something has a valuable item stashed away. One does not need to bring anything except personal papers, stamped or stamping items to use to enrich the prints created during the week. All the inks, rollers, cleaning mixtures were provided as well as tweezers, cutting tools and mats and so much more. And she has 3 presses. Someone would ask, “Linda, do you have a...” and she would produce it like a magician with a large hat. The icing on the cake was that she had hired a lovely young girl, who had just graduated from high school, to assist us. It was like being given a cheerful third arm on loan. She would cut paper, clean tools, help print and respond to our needs. This gave each of us more time to work and she received learning experience and our gratitude. This was total abundance. The studio sits on an acre of land amongst other

homes. Besides the studio there is a huge garden with spring blooms, a grape arbor where we sat for our lunch and shared, ate and rested. Chickens run about, scratching in the dirt and taking dirt baths and 2 pairs of ducks chase each other quacking like bickering couples, the husband tagging behind his mate, always complaining and she telling him to stop fussing and to leave her alone. One male had a lovely crested feathered topknot like one I have seen on Thai men in costume. There is a pond for the ducks to swim in and sleep by. Two dogs complete the menagerie—one of which was the “spotted dog” after whom the studio is named. It was such a lovely environment to work in and gave another dimension to a place of study and work. This time, I forced myself not to begin the week with the finished projects I hoped to accomplish in my head, but just let what would occur, occur. I vowed to use what I had on my printing plate over and over taking advantage of the “ghost” or leftover inks rather than immediately cleaning things off and starting over. Many interesting things happened for me and I was happier with the effects of what was left and then adding to it. I watched people work around me and appreciated their artistic abilities, skills and interests and then allowed myself to listen to what was “me” and follow that path, something that had been difficult before. It is very easy to be swayed by the outcomes

of others’ successes and want to incorporate those ideas into one’s own work. However, I found I was more pleased when I focused on my own ideas and style. Our days began formally at 9 a.m. but we were encouraged to arrive at 8 a.m. if we wanted to. Class finished at 5 p.m. but we could work longer in the studio if we felt called to continue by the art muse. Ojai is a cosy small town with lovely arty shops lining the main street and winding along several side streets. The restaurants are many and varied, but my favorite eating find was a coffee place called The Village on the main drag. The Village was a large, airy and cool space with many round metal tables each painted by a local artist

in a different style. The coffee was good, the bagels okay and the patrons very eclectic. There were old hippies, young mothers pushing strollers, stray cowboy types and an assortment of the young. Newspapers were strewn on tables, a few groups sat sharing experiences and ideas, while others worked on their computers. There was a kitchen in the back. Just my sort of place. There are quite a few motels along the main street and a few bed and breakfasts on the back streets. Happy Valley and the studio of Beatrice Woods (the Dada artist) is up the road a few miles and there is a small art museum. I am sure there is a lot more to be explored but I chose to spend my time in class and to work. I did note that many shops were closed on Tuesdays and that prices for food and in the shops were much higher than I am used to. It is such a lovely place and must get many tourists coming up to stay and to shop. I stayed at Casa Ojai, which worked out just fine for the 5 nights. I hung a “do not disturb” sign on the door and thus no one came in at all so I felt very private, which is just the way I like it. I like to leave my things out and not have them rearranged. I can go back to Linda’s studio for a very reasonable fee and work for a day or 2 on my own and the only thing I need to bring is the paper I print on. She provides everything else. This is, indeed, abundance and encourages creativity. She also teaches and has workshops of her own and there are many techniques that she teaches that I would love to learn. The advantage of such a rich environment filled with every press, tool and ink, as well as a large workspace, is that one can explore and at the same time turn inward to connect with that creative part of oneself. You never know what you will discover but it is a good journey to go on. This is one place I can’t wait to visit again.

New business caters to wave of comic book readers

N

early a year after Harvard Square closed up its kitchen, a second longtime Village shop has called it quits. On March 1, Claremont residents said goodbye to Raku, an eco-centric boutique whose paper goods and knickknacks have added character to Yale Avenue for the past 30 years.

But as one Claremont niche shop closes, another opens, with an abundance of a different sort of paper good. On the other end of the Claremont Village, residents are welcoming in the latest quirky Claremont business: comic book extraordinaire A Shop Called Quest. As many mom-and-pops struggle or fold, it’s a different story for the Redlands-based specialty store, which welcomes its second location in the City of Trees. The continuing resurgence of superhero blockbusters and graphic novels popularized through television shows keeps the niche new, says manager Jason Harris. “It just pumps more blood for us,” Mr. Harris said. “It brings in a new wave of comic readers eager to find out what’s next.” A Shop Called Quest makes a concerted effort to indulge budding comic book fans. The small store is packed with items geared toward the latest outbreaks: Dr. Who, The Walking Dead and Adventure Time included. “We have an extensive catalogue,” Mr. Harris said. “Where most comic book shops probably carry 3 of a series, we have 4 rows of everything from anything,

and we do well with it.” Among Quest’s vast collection of big name comic books is a wide selection of picks featuring great comic artists. For Mr. Harris, his passion for comics stems from his appreciation of the illustrations. He points out a few of his favorites: Mike Mignola, artist of Hellboy and Daredevil as well as Jean Giraud, also known by his pseudonym “Mœbius,” creator of comics like the popular series Blueberry known for their beautiful and elaborate landscapes. He recommends checking out Joe Kubert’s illustrations in The Bible, found propped up on one of the displays near the center of the store. “I’m not necessarily into the Bible, but I love Joe Kubert and his art style,” Mr. Harris said. “He is one of the classic illustrators of this time.” Providing for the growing fanbase and keeping the shop competitive with giants like Barnes & Noble and Amazon takes a lot of time, not to mention cash, Mr. Harris noted. While he would love to affirm the assumption that comic book store employees get to read all day, he is sad to note it’s not true. Most of his day is composed of sitting behind a computer, managing inventory and placing orders. He estimates there is about $40,000 in merchandise stocked on the handmade wooden shelves of the Village West store. But it’s part of a greater philosophy that has worked well for the business. “You’ve got to end up spending money to make money, which is the most cliche thing to say, but it’s the truth,” Mr. Harris said. “The fact is having all this product persuades people to come back.”

A SHOP CALLED QUEST continued from the previous page

Every Wednesday, Quest adds to its inventory, from a vast selection of comic books, old and new, to rows upon rows of graphic novels. It doesn’t stop there. Art books, manga and vinyl toys are also regular store features. And if it’s not available, they welcome customers’ special requests, happy to make a personal order. In turn, they reward customers for their loyalty. An incentive program is available to those who sign up with the store’s member services. They take their mission of catering to a diverse crowd very seriously. That means keeping all fans happy, cape lovers and those who like their product a little less traditional. “We grab a little of everything for everybody,” Mr. Harris said. A Shop Called Quest has been catering to comic lovers since it opened its doors in downtown Redlands nearly 25 years ago, albeit with a slightly different name. The shop came into being as Comic Quest but as the comic book frenzy of the 1990s caught on, a name change became evident to keep themselves relevant.

Claremonter named ‘Woman of the Year’ by assemblyman

I

nstead of just focusing on one issue, Claremont resident Zephyr TateMann does it all. It’s not in her nature to sit idle. The lawyer and local activist wouldn’t say it’s quite so, but friends and confidants beg to differ. “She is a very loving person who promotes the community and keeps herself very well informed on the issues,” said longtime friend Davetta Williams. Ms. Tate-Mann holds a Juris Doctorate of Law and a master’s degree in political science as well as in administration. She earned her community college teaching credential, a pair of Standard Secondary Life teaching credentials, an administrative credential and business licenses. She has worked as a school-tocareer educator and authored the educational pamphlet, “Medical Health Care: Career Prep Path.” She and her husband, Rudy Mann, are owners of a construction and investment business in Claremont. And that doesn’t include her volunteer work, for which many in Claremont would say is notable. To name a few, Ms. Tate-Mann is the former past president of the Democratic Club of Claremont and is also a member of the executive committee for the state Democratic Party. In 2006, she worked on the committee to write the state Democratic platform. She is a former member of the local chapter of the League of Women Voters, Active Claremont and served as treasurer for the former 59th assembly district. Her devotion across interests has not gone unnoticed. In 2004 she received the Volunteer Award from the Human Relations Council and in 2005 the Los Angeles Democratic Central Committee honored her as Democrat of the Year. She followed that with the NAACP’s Distinguished Citizen Award in the year following. She now has another distinction to add to her list. Ms. Tate Mann was recognized by 41st District Assemblyman Chris Holden as Woman of the Year. A ceremony was held earlier this month. She admits to being a little shocked over the recognition.

“I was the last person to find out about it! This was cooking behind my back,” she joked. On a more serious note, while Ms. Tate-Mann says she is flattered by the award, she also says she is more concerned in continuing to “get the job done” than having people take the time out of the day to toast her. “I want people to focus on the issues and policies and what needs to be done,” she said. “Even a small contribution can mean so much to people.” When it comes to causes close to her heart, Ms. Tate-Mann is no-nonsense. She works toward each cause with her own personal philosophy in tow, that human beings have an innate desire to help others. “Everyone has their own way of contributing to that cause,” she explained. “It could be giving to an organization or caring for a child as a mother or father.” For Ms. Tate-Mann, it’s contributing her vast expertise to as many organizations as she possibly can—she has a history of multi-tasking. She was working full-time as an educator when, following a longtime passion, she returned to school for a law degree. She blames her “lack of free time” on her insatiable desire for knowledge. “We are all lifelong learners,” she stated simply. “We have to continue to expand our knowledge and keep current. You have to be that way today because everything is moving so fast now, much faster than when I was a teenager.” Ms. Tate-Mann grew up in Kilgore, Texas, the center of the nation’s oil. While she says her vast experience comes from her unquenched need to learn more, she credits her passion for helping others to her father’s giving spirit. “I didn’t even know he had done some of the things he had done until he had passed away,” Ms. Tate-Mann said. “He was always putting others’ needs before his own.” As a child, Ms. Tate-Mann was not unlike how she is now as an adult, with her schedule filled to the brim with activities, both athletic and academic. It was in high

school that she got her first taste of political involvement as a leader in student government. The satisfaction it brought her has never left. “She is a natural-born leader and you can depend on her word and leadership because she doesn’t do things casually,” Ms. Williams said. “She always does her research and knows what she is talking about. She is a great role model in all areas of her life.” Those roles have changed throughout her life, from service to her church on the local level or participating at the state level as she was recently selected by Governor Jerry Brown to sit on the advi-

sory panel for the California Earthquake Authority. But she faces each task with the same joy and with no desire to lighten her load. “I’ve always done 2 or 3 things at the same time,” she said. “It’s best to be close to where the decisions are made and at least observe how they’re made and try to become a part of the decision making. Of course voting is one way of doing that, but there’s other ways of getting involved. We should be able to make the decisions that affect our own lives.”

CHS track teams show they are loaded with talent

I

n the first Sierra League dual meet of the season, the Claremont Wolfpack boys and girls track and field teams took on the South Hills Huskies. The Lady Wolfpack, with Coach Jose Ancona at the helm, defeated the Huskies 93-43 on the day. The boys team, led by Coach Veronica Amarasekara, won by the score of 71-61.
Claremont girls track and field have taken the Sierra League title the last 2 years. Coach Ancona is confident that they will be able to do it yet again. “I have no problem talking about my team’s strengths, as I believe we have the athSPORTING letes to finish first again. Our lineup is LIFE public. I invite all the other teams to line their athletes up how they want and try to beat us,” he said. The dual meet against South Hills consisted of 16 events for boys and girls each, with each athlete being able to compete in a maximum of 4 events. Claremont girls came flying out of the blocks with wins in the 4x100 relay, 1600, 400 and 800-meter distance run, and 100-meter sprint. This all but sealed the race for the Lady Wolfpack, who finished the meet by totaling almost 100 points. The girls track roster includes a number of highly talented athletes, as Coach Ancona pointed out. COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff “Brittany Brown is one of the best sprinters in the Bailey Fuimaono competes in the shot put last week during Claremont High Schoolʼs combined track meet state. Merin Arft, Kiana Cavanaugh, and Riley against South Hills in West Covina. The girls team easily defeated the Huskies by a score of 93-43. McLachlan are all very competitive in distance running,” he said. “Kelsey Johnson is a great multi-runner, she does high jump, pole vault, and 100-meter hurdles all extremely well. Julia Cantrell is one of our top distance runners and a top hurdler at 300 meters. Finally, our 4x400 team is very strong but we have one injured runner Kim Chen. When she comes back the relay team will be unstoppable.” Claremont boys had a more difficult time putting

away the Huskies. With wins in the 1600-meter run, 110-meter hurdles, and 800-meter run, the Pack was neck and neck with South Hills after 8 events. Coach “V” summarized Claremont’s initial struggles. “We started off the meet with a disqualification and did not score the way we should have in several other early events. Going into the second half of the meet we held on to a very slim lead. At that point, the team pulled together with an effort that included multiple scorers in key events.” The Pack was able to pull in front of South Hills and extend their lead when some of their veterans took over. “Aric Crowell, Jimmy Baeskens, and Adam Johnson led a strong performance by the distance team to help us during that final push. Nick Guzman and Jon Reza led the sprinters and hurdlers, and Ryan Saeta and Nick Guido brought in crucial points in the throws to seal our 10-point victory,” Coach V said. Ancona commented further on the girls squad’s chances of taking the title for a third year in a row: “St Lucy’s usually has a strong squad but they are somewhat unpredictable. Our biggest test will be at the end of the season when we face Ayala.” The Wolpack competed in the California Relays over the weekend, and put in another strong performance. Brown won 2 events, and the Lady Wolfpack finished either first or second in 5 out of the 9 events in which they competed. The boys team had a first-place finish for their 4x100 relay team. Claremont will feature again at a dual meet this week against Damien and St. Lucy’s, then will race in the Arcadia Invitational The Claremont boys dominate the field during the freshman, sophomore 800-meter run last week during a combined next week. —Chris Oakley

Celebrating 35 years of service

H

ouse of Ruth will celebrate its 35th Anniversary Gala on April 6th at 6 p.m. at the Sheraton Fairplex and Conference Center. The event will commemorate the nonproffit’s 35 years of compassionate service to the community and honor past presidents of the board of directors.

This event will feature an elegant dinner, music and dancing, as well as a live and silent auction. This year’s event sponsors include Claremont Toyota, Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center, Chino Valley Medical Center, Gould Asset Management and Norm’s Restaurants. Tickets for the event are available at $150 each, and tables for 10 are available at $1500 each. Corporate sponsorships opportunities are also available.

House of Ruth’s 35th Anniversary Gala comes at the end of Women’s History Month, which is significant for an organization with a history of women helping women. Since its humble beginnings 35 years ago as a 24-hour hotline which operated around a kitchen table of a female Claremont Graduate University student, House of Ruth’s mission has been to advocate for and assist women victimized by domestic violence. The organization also helps children exposed to violence in transforming their lives by providing culturally competent shelter, programs, opportunities and education. In the past year, House of Ruth served a total of 10,195 people through various programs and services which include, but are not limited to, an emergency shelter and transitional shelter, a child abuse treatment program and a 24-hour emergency hotline. In addition, staff and volun-

teers provided community education services to a total of 5,640 people. In addition to celebrating 35 years of dedicated service to the community, House of Ruth’s 35th Anniversary Gala will honor past presidents of the board of directors. The time and dedication of its past presidents has been crucial to allowing House of Ruth to reach this important milestone in the history of the organization. House of Ruth’s 35th Anniversary Gala promises to be a very memorable event that recognizes the organization’s long-standing service to the many women and children in our community that have been affected by domestic violence. All proceeds from the event will go towards domestic violence services at House of Ruth. For more information about this event, contact Helen Veyna at 623-4364, ext. 6054 or hveyna@houseofruthinc.org.

Yi-li Chin Ward has had a career notable for her consistent and persistent interpretations of the female form. Ms. Chin’s paintings are economical of line, and seem not at all that particular. Yet, if one spends the time with them, one sees that they are very particular, and very specific about thought and emotion.

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. On April 11, 2013, at 9:00am, Cal-Western Reconveyance Corporation, as duly appointed trustee under and pursuant to Deed of Trust recorded March 18, 2005, as Inst. No. 05 0624342* in book XX, page XX of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of Los Angeles County, State of California, executed by Estela B. Perez, A Married Woman, will sell at public auction to highest bidder for cash, cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in section 5102 of the financial code and authorized to do business in this state: Behind the fountain located in civic center plaza, 400 civic Center Plaza Pomona, California, all right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County and State described as: Completely described in said deed of trust The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 24361 Vista Buena Dr Diamond Bar CA 91765-1836 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be held, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, condition or encumbrances, including fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to pay the remaining principal sums of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $339,239.36. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder's sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. 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 pub-

Notice is hereby given that RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A., as duly appointed trustee pursuant to the Deed of Trust executed by SHEILA P WALKER, A SINGLE WOMAN, dated 06/20/2007 and recorded 6/27/2007, as Instrument No. 20071538843, in Book N/A, Page N/A, of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of Los Angeles County, State of California, will sell on 04/25/2013 at 9:00AM, Doubletree Hotel Los Angeles-Norwalk, 13111 Sycamore Drive, Norwalk, CA 90650, Vineyard Ballroom at public auction, to the highest bidder for cash or check as described below, payable in full at time of sale, all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust, in the property situated in said County and State and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 602 ASBURY DRIVE, CLAREMONT, CA, 91711. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The total amount of the unpaid balance with interest thereon of the obligation secured by the property to be sold plus reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is $527,784.48. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept cashier's checks drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state. Said sale will be made, in an ''AS IS'' condition, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession or encumbrances, to satisfy the indebtedness secured by said Deed of Trust, advances thereunder, with interest as provided, and the unpaid principal of the Note secured by said Deed of Trust with interest thereon as provided in said Note, plus fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. 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 a 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 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 1-800-2818219 or visit this Internet Web site www.recontrustco.com, using the file number assigned to this case TS No. 100116083. 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.
