Respecting new business
Dear Editor: One of the most salient points that seems to have been overlooked in the responses from several Architectural Commissioners in the recent discussions about economics and design is that the commission should make the applicant feel like they are the most important person in the room. It is the applicant’s project that drives our economic engine and it is only the applicant’s project that gives purpose to the commission.

Kudos and a clarification
Dear COURIER staff: Thank you for another excellent Almanac! And, thank you for selecting the Claremont Depot as the second favorite architectural specimen in Claremont. One revision you might utilize for next time concerns the title of one of the favorite buildings: “Metro Depot.” The depot is not called Metro Depot. It is owned by the city of Claremont. All Metrolink stations were purchased, built, and are maintained by the station cities.

the Hawaiian Volcano Goddess Pele appears to a man in a veggie burger or is it just some religious nut who has no concept of reality? Would a staunch Christian believe an incident about the appearance of Prometheus in the branch of an oak tree or would they think it ridiculous? And why do these outlandish stories get press time in our newspapers? There are 2 big problems around the most common Christian visions, the first is that these characters, Jesus and Mary, never really existed and actually evolved over thousands of years from Sun Gods, Greek Gods, Egyptian Gods, Hindu Gods and others that form our present day beliefs. It was quite common for Roman citizens who lived in the first century to see visions of Mithra, one of the most popular Gods of this period. Second, when viewing and identifying sightings for Jesus or Mary, no one really knows what these people actually looked like since they didn’t exist and not one first century painting of them has ever been found. All the images of these mythological demigods were painted hundreds of years later by artists who had to interpret their facial features from legends. So the key question is, who’s image is it in that pi-

geon poop, the Black Jesus depicted in the earliest paintings, the curly haired Jewish Jesus from Galilee or the tall, blue eyed, blond hair, athletic, Caucasian Jesus that the Christians from the Western cultures so desperately want us to believe . It is time to bring rational discourse into our public arenas and forever rid ourselves of the ignorance that religion brings into our daily lives.

Dreier’s costly message
Dear Editor: I received in the U.S. mail today a 2sided color poster from Congressman David Dreier that criticizes “Washington’s wasteful spending,” “out-of-control spending,” and “senseless spending,” and states that Congressman Dreier is “working to reduce spending and balance the budget.” Also on the Congressman’s poster, in fine print, is this statement: “This mailing was prepared, published and mailed at taxpayer expense.” Irony, anyone?

Religious visions
Dear Editor: The article about the Virgin of Guadalupe is just another sad case of the plethora of religions in our society. I would like to bring some sanity to these types of sightings. The appearance of virgins, gods, saviors and all other forms of mythology are driven by the culture and the religious bias of the country in which they occur. In the Muslim world converts see images of Muhammad, in Catholic countries they see Virgins and Jesus and in Hindu societies they see Vishnu or Rama. These sightings are so absurd, as Brenda Bolinger pointed out, that Jesus was last seen in pigeon poop. It gets even crazier when you consider that Americans worship over 35 different and distinct gods. So given that fact, is it a miracle if

School board vote brings long awaited end to talks

T

he applause and cheers inside the boardroom of the Richard S. Kirkendall Education Center signified the end of the lengthy negotiations between the Claremont Unified School District and the Claremont Faculty Association (CFA).

The CUSD board officially brought the process to its conclusion on Thursday night with a vote to approve the tentative agreement between the 2 entities and then another vote to rescind the Reduction in Force (RIF) notices handed out in March. CUSD Board President Hilary LaConte and CFA President Joe Tonan shook hands after signing the official agreement. Thirty-four teachers and 2 counselors had their jobs restored. “We can celebrate tonight that we did protect schools and staff,” Mr. Tonan said. “A full 180 days for every student in the district, a ratio of 24 to 1 in grades K through 3 have both been maintained. I would like to thank both our bargaining team: Ann Hardy, Brent Esposito, Dave Chamberlain and our past president Suzanne Miller. I would also like to thank the district’s bargaining team: Lisa Shoemaker, Kevin Ward, Mike Bateman and Jim Coombs, who we will miss. But most of all, I would like to thank our members (teachers, counselors and nurses) who put the students ahead of all else.” The new agreement finally brings a year of negotiations to an end. Under the new agreement, CFA will save the district approximately $1,578,000 over the next 2 years through health and welfare benefit reduction, an increase in secondary class size and not filling a vacant counseling position. The savings nullified the need for CFA bargaining unit members to take furlough days for the next 2 school years. All CFA members will be required to pay $3000 over the next 2 years into a health and welfare benefits pool to save the district an estimated $500,000 per year. Grades 7 through 12 will experience an increase in class sizes by one student per class over the next 2 years to save the district approximately $189,000 per year. The final savings will come from not filling a vacant counseling position for the next 2 years, resulting in CUSD saving $100,000 per year. CUSD and CFA signed the tentative agreement on July 27th. The agreement was then ratified by an 88 percent approval vote by CFA bargaining unit members earlier this month. “I really appreciate the sacrifice that the faculty is willing to make,” said CUSD Board Vice President Beth Bingham. “Furlough days were an option. However, that would have meant “X” number of days less

instruction. And for the faculty to be willing to accept the agreement that they’re making means that we will not lose instruction time and to me that’s extraordinarily important. I appreciate your willingness to do that. I appreciate the willingness of all our employees.” The past year was a challenging time for both CUSD and CFA. California School Services CEO Ron Bennett was hired as a mediator to help the sides negotiate in July 2009, but become the focus of controversy in March when the district planned to officially add him to its negotiations team. CUSD Superintendent Terry Nichols recommended at the March 18th board meeting that the district not go forward with the appointment. Negotiations continued into April when the district declared an impasse due to both sides not being able to reach a solution. CUSD and CFA resumed negotiations in June under Loretta van del Pol, a mediator of California State Mediation and Conciliation. The 2 entities would have pursued fact-finding if they could not reach an agreement. “I want to thank Kevin Ward, Lisa Shoemaker, Joe Tonan, Suzanne Miller and their teams for the efforts

that they put forward to reach an agreement,” Superintendent Nichols said on Thursday. “I’m especially pleased that the agreement was determined by Claremont people.” Along with contacting the teachers and counselors who received RIFs this year, Mr. Ward has also called teachers who received RIF notices in March 2009 to restore their jobs as well. A list of those teachers will be available next week. CUSD board member Jeff Stark expressed his gratitude for both bargaining teams on Thursday but advised the 2 sides to work more cohesively in the future. “I also would like to thank the bargaining teams— thank you for getting it done,” he said. Teachers, you are making a huge sacrifice for our children. It’s greatly appreciated. The agreement I believe is benevolent, I believe it’s honorable. But lastly, my hope and my dream in regards to this experience is that from here on out you work together for thoughtful, equitable solutions and never bear the burden of impasse or fact-finding again.”

Claremont Heritage director enters resignation
Claremont Heritage Executive Director Lisa Rupple resigned from her position this week. Ms. Rupple took over for former Executive Director Ginger Elliott in February following Ms. Elliott’s retirement after 25 years heading the organization. “I think it just wasn’t a good fit for her,” Ms. Elliott said about the decision.

Ms. Elliott said advertisements would be placed in preservation publications and locally to find a new director for the organization. Claremont Heritage’s office is closed during the month of August. Ms. Rupple is on vacation and could not be reached for comment.

CORRECTION In the article about Claremont COURIER newsmaker Joe Tonan published in the 2010-11 Almanac, it indicated that Cindy Tonan had waived her rights to retirement benefits from Claremont Unified School District. She actually has only waived her retiree health and welfare benefits to the age of 65.

Examples show Claremont’s high benefits costs

C F

laremont will be paying about $142,313 a year of former City Manager Glenn Southard’s CalPERS retirement benefits.
According to the CalPERS legal office, Mr. Southard will take in $21,299.93 per month from CalPERS, amounting to a total of $255,600 per year. Mr. Southard worked in Claremont for 17 years before leaving to work for the city of Indio in 2005. He recently retired

with a final salary of $309,375. Former assistant city manager Bridget Healy earns $166,702 annually though CalPERS. Of that, Claremont will be responsible for paying $101,243 per year. There are another 8 former employees of the city of Claremont whose CalPERS benefits amount to over $100,000 per year, according to the California Foundation for Fiscal Responsibility. While the numbers are alarming, a majority of statewide retirees, about 74 percent, earn less than

$36,000 annually, according to the CalPERS website. Only 2 percent of the nearly half a million retirees earn over $100,000. In the fiscal year 2009-10, Claremont paid nearly $3 million to CalPERS. In addition, Claremont is paying off a 20-year bond for its public safety employees’ retirements, totaling about $400,000 per year. Some city council members have called for the benefits to city employees to be scaled back in the name of long-term financial security for the city.

Alvarez off the hook after ruling
ormer Three Valleys Municipal Water District Board Member Xavier Alvarez made national headlines again this week.
A federal appeals court on Tuesday declared a 2005 law, the Stolen Valor Act, unconstitutional. The law bars unrightfull claims to military accomplishments. “There is certainly no unbridled constitutional right to lie such that any regulation of lying must be subjected to strict scrutiny,” Judge Milan Smith Jr. wrote in the opinion. “The right to speak and write whatever one chooses—including, to some degree, worthless, offensive, and demonstrable untruths—without cowering in fear of a powerful government is, in our view, an essential component of the protection afforded by the First Amendment.” Mr. Alvarez was found guilty of breaking the federal law in 2007 when claiming to have won the Congressional Medal of Honor. He made the remarks while introducing himself at a public meeting shortly after being elected to the Three Valleys Board. He has never served in the military. A federal judge ordered him to pay $5,000, serve 3 years of probation and complete 4000 hours of community service at a Veteran’s Hospital. Mr. Alvarez is currently serving a 5-year prison sentence on an unrelated matter. In September 2009, Mr. Alvarez was found guilty of charges related to misappropriation of public funds, grand theft and insurance fraud.

Charges filed against Claremont teenager

C

riminal charges of involuntary manslaughter have been filed against a Claremont teenager whose baby died during a home childbirth. The incident took place on October 24, 2009.
The female infant, named Ariel Williams by her mother, died shortly after being born into a toilet in an apartment complex in the 400 block of South Indian Hill Boulevard. The mother and child were transported to Pomona Valley Hospital later that day after the teenager’s grandfather discovered what had happened. The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office found the baby died from pneumonia and from having amniotic fluid in her lungs, according to Claremont Police Lieutenant Shelly Vander Veen. “There was no immediate medical care available and that resulted in the death of the baby,” Lt. Vander Veen said. The mother, who turned 18 earlier this month, made her first court appearance on Monday for an arraignment hearing at a Pomona courthouse. Because she was 17 at the time, the case is being tried in the Juvenile Court. Police would not release the woman’s name because she was a juvenile when the incident occurred.

Salmonella outbreak instigates nationwide egg recall

A

pproximately 228 million eggs have been recalled since August 13th due to more than 250 cases of salmonella illnesses since May. At least 17 states, including California, are part of the recall due to an outbreak that has been traced to eggs from Wright County Egg in Galt, Iowa. A growing list of brand names involved in the recall has been released. The names include Albertson, Boomsma’s, Dutch Farms, Farm Fresh, Glenview, Hillandale, James Farms, Kemps, Lucerne, Lund, Mountain Dairy, Pacific Coast, Ralph’s, Shoreland, Sunshine and Trafficanda.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that Salmonella Enteritidis can be on both the inside and outside of eggs that look normal. If the eggs are eaten raw and undercooked, the bacterium can lead to illnesses. According to CDC, symptoms of salmonella illness include fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhea 12 to 72 hours after consuming a contaminated food or beverage. Symptoms typically last 4 to 7 days. In-shell eggs packed from May 16th and August 13th have been recalled. Eggs packaged in that time frame and identified with plant numbers P-1026, P1413 and P-1946 should be returned and not eaten.

police blotter
Thursday, August 12 A woman called police to report that her son was attacking her. Police responded to her home on the 700 block of West First Street around 10:45 a.m. Police discovered the son suffers from paranoid schizophrenia and was disturbed by the sound of the phone ringing. He began hitting his mother in the head and arm. The 21-year-old was taken to Charter Hospital for a psychological evaluation. The mother did not suffer serious injuries and declined medical attention. Friday, August 13 A fire was started on the basketball court at the Claremont Cottages apartments in the 500 block of West San Jose Avenue. The fire was ignited using newspapers, dried bark and leaves around 11 a.m. A resident at the complex put the fire out using a garden hose. The night before, another fire was started in the same place using newspapers. Police have no suspects but are following up on some information obtained to determine who started the blaze. *** Two parents were arrested after fighting over who would take their baby home. Police received a call from a witness who saw the couple arguing over the baby at an apartment complex in the 600 block of West San Jose Avenue. The father, who was holding the baby, began to walk away. Trying to stop him, the mother grabbed him by the arm and punched him. The father retaliated by kicking her in the leg. The couple has been in a dating relationship for the past 2 years. Both parents were arrested for battery. The mother is a 17-year-old from

Ontario. The father, Oscar Perez, 20, lives at the apartment complex. The baby was left under the care of a relative. Monday, August 16 A man was arrested at College Park for possession of drugs. A witness called police at 8:45 p.m. after seeing 2 men lurking near the park’s bathroom. The witness suspected they were involved in some kind of illegal activity. Police located the 2 men and found a bag of methamphetamine and a smoking pipe on one of the subjects. Damien Acuna, 22, of Montclair was arrested for possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia. The second subject was found to be living in a small camp on the northeast portion of the park. Since the area is railroad property, he was told by police to pack up his belongs and move on. Tuesday, August 17 A man was arrested for possession of an illegal firearm at the Howard Johnson Hotel. Police received a call about a couple fighting near the area of Indian Hill

Boulevard and American Avenue. Officers arrived around 1 p.m. and found the arguing couple. They were staying at Howard Johnson Hotel. The officer escorted the couple back to their hotel room to retrieve their identification cards. When they entered the hotel room, the officer found 2 small children asleep in the room. The children were unattended. The father said he left the children in the care of his brother, who was also staying in the hotel. The brother told police he had just left the children before the officer arrived since they were sleeping. The officer smelled residual marijuana smoke in the room and asked to search it. The officer found a loaded 22-caliber Beretta handgun in one of the dresser drawers. The brother admitted to smoking marijuana in the room and to owning the weapon. Marraico McHenry, 28, was arrested for being a felon in possession of a firearm. The parents of the children were not arrested.

Full agenda for final summer CUSD board meeting

C

Going organic impacts cost of school meals laremont Unified School District breakfast prices are increasing 25 cents and lunch prices are receiving a 50-cent jump as the result of board approval at Thursday night’s meeting. According to district documents, the rising costs are due to the district’s desire to “decrease its reliance on processed foods, as well as ensure long term fiscal solvency.” The district has not increased prices since August 2001. “This does not affect free or reduced meals,” Mr. Cota said. “It only affects a full-paid meal. We are still lower than our neighboring districts.” The money generated from the new breakfast and lunch prices will be used to purchase more local and organic fruits and vegetables. The cost of milk and other snacks will not change. “I think it’s a small price to pay to provide our students with more fresh and local nutritious food especially since one of our goals is healthy lifestyles,” said CUSD board member Mary Caenepeel. CUSD Director of Nutrition Services Rick Cota has implemented fresh salad bars, partnered with local businesses and worked with community organizations in establishing school gardens in order to enhance the district’s breakfast and lunch programs. Through the efforts of Mr. Cota and his staff, processed foods have been eliminated from school meals by 40 percent. Mr. Cota is entering his 2nd year in CUSD. One of the next projects for Nutrition Services is the construction of a chicken coop at El Roble Intermediate School. The chickens will be used to improve the soil, and eggs from the chickens will be used for the breakfast and lunch menus.
BREAKFAST AND LUNCH PRICES Grade Level (Meal) Old New Elementary (Breakfast) $1.00 $1.25 Elementary (Lunch) $2.00 $2.50 Intermediate (Breakfast) $1.25 $1.50 Intermediate (Lunch) $2.25 $2.75 High School (Breakfast) $1.50 $1.75 High School (Lunch) $2.50 $3.00

Count on nouns

Paper that is written on can be counted (I have two papers due this semester), but if you need to fill your printer, you purchase ‘paper,’ not papers. One gets a ‘haircut’ (not hairscut), but cleans errant ‘hairs’ from a jacket (attached to the head: non-count, detached: count).

Solving CalPERS issues
Dear Editor: I am writing in response to the COURIER's August 11th article on the costs of employee retirement. First, the extension of retirement costs years after an employee has retired is not exceptional in either the private or public sectors under such plans. All employers providing such retirement plans provide the monies to employees or their survivors until death. The same applies to social security, of course. Most members of City Council are either receiving such payments (public and/or private) or will in the future. Until very recently, council members were provided the opportunity to receive health benefits or deferred compensation as elected officials, with one of the critics of city employees being a recipient of those public monies. Council members and their predecessors have the fiscal responsibility for the pension system for all of our city employees, having approved collectively bargained contracts. In the most recent round of staff reductions over the past 2 fiscal years, council members have also approved additional costs in the provision of incentives (“golden handshakes”) for employees to retire, an unnecessary expenditure of public funds, but objected to by only a few members of the public during the budget hearings. These future retirement costs are to be calculated on an actuarial basis as an ongoing costs for compensation. In both the public and private sector, the pension plans are under funded due to the decline of interest rates, greater longevity and the failure of both public and private employers to address these shortfalls in a timely manner. Shortfalls in both the public and private sectors are increasing and tax payers “bail” both out due to legal protections of pensions.

readers’ comments
In addition, the state legislature has reduced the safety retirement age from 55 to 50, added early retirement incentives and greatly extended inclusion of employees with respect to safety retirement which has a higher cost. The Ventura judicial decision added unanticipated costs to retirement by including monies paid for benefits in the final base for compensation. Further, the PERS system often includes provision of health care at no cost to the employee, a cost not actuarially based and adds to the problem. Over the past 2 years, Claremont city employees, both safety and non-safety, have negotiated reductions in their total compensation. Additionally, significant staff reductions have transpired. The police department has especially been impacted with the loss of 7 sworn positions, equating sworn levels to 1984 when the city had about 30 percent fewer citizens. These negotiated reductions in compensation enabled the city to bridge its budget gap and thus continue to provide the services the community expects. As a citizen, I appreciate the willingness of our employees to assist in these difficult economic times and regret that 2 members of council repudiate those efforts and use the situation as a political opportunity to “bash” those in public service, especially since these same council members have part of the responsibility of why we are where we are with respect to the pension issue. The provision of traditional lifetime pensions for the public and private sectors needs to be appropriately addressed, balancing the obligations/commitments made to employees with the availability of monies. The underfunded pension issue is a complex, difficult problem in the reduced circumstances of today’s economic climate. We do not want to encumber the next generations nor create an underclass of an elderly population with inadequate financial resources. Let us move from blame to collectively pursuing solutions.
Barbara L. Musselman Claremont

Limited retirement benefits with CalPERS
Dear Editor: I am writing in response to the article by Tony Krickl in the August 11th COURIER on page 3. I am a COURIER subscriber, Claremont resident, as well as one of nearly half a million retired public employees who have become the scapegoats of choice for many bureaucrats of late. I am completely in favor of transparency and accountability in government at all levels, but I also believe in and fairness and accuracy in reporting, and having all the facts before making any important decisions. Nowhere in this story is there any mention that the handful of persons named represent a mere 1 percent of all CalPERS retirees. Nor is it mentioned that the vast majority, 78 percent, of CalPERS retirees, receive $36,000 or less per year. In fact, the average CalPERS pensioner, receives a ‘whopping’ $25,000 a year, and half of CalPERS retirees receive only $16,000 per year or less. For anyone wondering if perhaps there is more going on here than what you have been told, I suggest going to the fol-

lowing website, on which each of the myths currently circulating about CalPERS retirees is thoroughly debunked. This is a public information website with no user id or password required. It contains many links to other resources for persons interested in public pensions and their economic impacts. Type www.calpersresponds.com into your web browser, and select Pension Financing from the options at the top of the screen. There you will find many interesting facts. For example, unlike those who retired from private sector careers, many CalPERS retirees do not even receive Social Security, making their meager pensions their sole source of income, unless they were able to put aside some personal savings. I have no idea how anyone, even without children, survives in this economy on $16,000 a year. School pensioners fare worst of all, averaging only $12,948 per year, a pathetic statement on the value we place on those who taught us to read (the COURIER or any other publication) and write (including letters to editors), to say nothing of the other important knowledge garnered in school. If he was aware of these facts, I doubt Councilman Yao would continue to characterize the current system as “too generous.”

t is no surprise Damien archery tournaments throughout High School sophomore California. “It was a lot of fun experiencing the Matthew Condino, 15, has format of the tournament [State Games], snagged 2 gold medals and a sil- because it wasn’t like the other tournaver in the past 3 months at ments that I’ve been in before,” Matthew

said. “I didn’t go into it thinking that I would win, but it was the second major tournament this year that I’ve won, so that was cool.” Matthew began taking an interest in archery when he signed up for the beginning archery recreation class through the city of Claremont 3 years ago. Vernie Urbado of the Mary Easton Archery Range at Claremont McKenna College teaches the class. After taking a year of recreational

archery classes with Ms. Urbado, Matthew decided to shoot competitively. He has now been competing regularly in archery tournaments for 2 years. “I think archery is fun because you use your body a lot and it helps you train your mind,” Matthew said. “It’s also a lot of fun competing in tournaments.” Matthew has been practicing with his main coach, Ms. Urbado, and 3-time

Olympian Janet Dykman, 5 days a week at the Easton Archery Range. They work on everything from form and shooting methods to mental training. Matthew also participates in a series of training programs that focuses on improving individual aspects of his shooting technique as well as learning about his equipment. “His success is a tribute to the hard work he has put in over the last couple of years. Vernie Urbano’s 12-week training programs have been invaluable to his quick development,” Anthony Condino, Matthew’s father, said. “We have been fortunate to have access

to another coach, Janet Dykman, who has been able to fine-tune his shooting form and give him some advice on competition, tournaments, and how to conduct himself while shooting, based on her past experience as an Olympian. They work together and make sure that he progresses.” The sport has also opened up new opportunities to Matthew, as he now volunteers every Saturday, assisting Ms. Urbano with teaching her beginning archery class. For people interested in trying archery, Matthew suggests signing up for a recreational class first to test the waters.

Matthew Condino, 15, took up archery 2 years ago by enrolling in a local recreation class. Since then, Matthewʼs interest has grown to competitve archery which includes a five-days-a-week practice schedule.

“First of all, you should try the recreational classes, and then if you like it, you can get more serious about it. It’s usually 8 classes, and they give you a feel for the sport. If you really like it, then there are also intermediate classes,” he said. Matthew’s latest triumph came at the Grape Stakes tournament for Cadet Boys in Sacramento on August 14. He will

compete in the Pacific Coast Championships in mid-September and the Desert Open in Long Beach on October 1 and 2. “I’m not quite ready yet for the Junior Olympics, but maybe next year or the year after that. I’m definitely going to try out for the Olympics eventually,” Matthew said.

John Ilsley
Beloved longtime Claremont physician
“Everybody liked him and he liked everybody.” This is a tribute from a friend this week to John L. Ilsley, the quintessential ideal family doctor, who died peacefully on August 12, 2010, four days after his 86th birthday. The man who would be fondly referred to as “Doc Ilsley” was born to physician Morrill L. Ilsley and Mary Beckett Ilsley on August 8, 1924 in Calais, Maine. The family, including John and sister Barbara, came to Claremont 4 years later and settled on Indian Hill Boulevard, first near Seventh Street and later in the family home at Eleventh Street and Indian Hill. The young John attended Sycamore Elementary School, Norton Academy and Webb School where he graduated in 1942. His collegiate education was at Colby College in Maine where he followed an accelerated program of studies and graduated in 1945. He completed his medical training at the University of Rochester in 1948. With his bride, Marilyn Fossett, whom he married in 1944, he went on to complete internship and residency programs at Baltimore City school functions in the community. Commissioned as an officer in the California National Guard in 1952, Dr. Ilsley rose to the rank of Colonel and served as the Division Surgeon for 10 years. His leadership extended into other areas through serving as the head of the Claremont Chapter of Rotary International in 1973, Chief of Staff of Pomona Valley Community Hospital in 1978, and President of the Board of the Galileo Society of the Claremont Colleges for a decade beginning in 1992. He served on the Pilgrim Place Corporation for 20 years, from 1975 to 1995. He also served as physician and member of the board of directors at Claremont Manor for many years. Dr. Ilsley’s community spirit extended to many civic organizations. As a member of the Claremont Chapter of Rotary International, he maintained perfect attendance for 54 years. He was a charter member of St. Ambrose Episcopal Church and later a member of Claremont Presbyterian Church. He sang in the choirs of both churches. He volunteered medical services to both Webb School and Claremont High School for 20 years and worked with the Boy Scouts for 25 years. With his wife, he traveled to 34 countries, mostly for pleasure, but also to provide lectures and attend seminars in continuing medical education. He was an avid gardener, particularly fond of camellias, played bridge and treasured his family and friends while maintaining an unflagging trust in his community and an unsinkable spirit of optimism. Lifelong Claremonter Chet Jaeger recalls playing softball in the street with the young John Ilsley near Indian Hill and Tenth Street when they were children, then getting reacquainted in later years when he and Dr. Ilsley took coronet lessons together and sang in the church choir together. Noting that Dr. Ilsley cared for his mother, Mr. Jaeger recalls his great sense of humor. “He was one of the last ‘home town doctors,’” Mr. Jaeger observed. Dr. Gene St. Clair was a colleague and friend. “He was very sincere and funloving. Anything that came up, he could see the funny side,” Dr. St. Clair noted.

Hospital in conjunction with John Hopkins University in 1952. By that time parents of 3 sons, the Ilsleys returned to Claremont where Dr. Ilsley established an office at 130 Harvard Ave. and practiced medicine for the next 50 years. By 1955, the Ilsley family had added two daughters. All were active in camping, traveling and many, many social and

For more information, contact Claremont Club Tennis Director Barry Friedman at 625-6791, ext. 261.

DR. JOHN ILSLEY continued from the previous page

In his later years, Dr. St. Clair, added, “He had a collection of camellias that followed him from place to place. He was a wonderful friend—always, always upbeat.” Dr. James Meriwether shared an office with Dr. Henry Gallagher and Dr. Ilsley on Harvard Avenue as well as a longstanding friendship. “John was a well-trained internist who practiced horse and buggy medicine in the best sense of the word,” Dr. Meri-

wether shared. “He did a fine job, using what he called his ‘atta boy’ calls.” Dr. Meriwether pointed out Dr. Ilsley’s many years of training in internal medicine, along with his special touch. A member of the nursing staff at Mt. San Antonio Gardens where Dr. Ilsley had made his home in recent years, described Dr. Ilsley as a “people person” who definitely touched others’ lives. “He would do what he called ‘touch ‘n’ go’s’ where he would stop and talk with anyone, see how he/she was feeling, tell a

joke or two, then leave by always saying, ‘be of good cheer.’ It didn’t take much time, but it touched the hearts of many. He never had an ill comment about anything, and he gave 100 percent of his time to his family, friends and patients.” Dr. Ilsley was predeceased by his wife, Marilyn, after 53 years of marriage. He leaves his sister, Barbara Hager of Mt. San Antonio Gardens; his children and their spouses: Peter and Soyla Ilsley of Baldwin Park, James and Janice Ils-

ley of Claremont, Paul and Helena Ilsley of Helsinki, Finland, Susan and Charles Jahant of Upland, and Sara and William Cooper of Yucaipa, along with 13 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, August 24, 2010 at 4 p.m. at Claremont Presbyterian Church, 1111 N. Mountain Ave. with a reception following at the church. Donations in lieu of flowers to the Pomona Valley Medical Center would be gratefully appreciated.

In the hot seat
Firefighting is a way of life for these field leaders

COURIER photsos/Steven Felschundneff Captain Scott Gorman watches the crew train during a grass drill on May 1 in the hills above Glendora. Mr. Gorman, 38, has 15 years of experience as a firefighter and is one of two captains under Superintendant Steve Robles.

uperintendent Robles and Captain Scott Gorman lead the Dalton Hotshots, a crew of hardscrabble men who battle wildfires with nothing more than chainsaws and simple hand tools.

S

It is physically demanding work, often in the deep backcountry, far away from the television crews that record the seemingly endless stream of infernos during southern California’s long fire season. Mr. Robles is the archetypal high school coach: aloof, strong and benevolent. Mr. Gorman is more philosophical, intellectual and reflective. Their task is simple but exhaustingly huge. Dig a 2-foot trench and clear 4 feet of brush around the perimeter of an entire

fire. The idea is to remove fuel from the path so that it will burn itself out when it reaches the line. When news reports state a wildfire is 50 percent contained, it means that a hotshot crew, or crews, have literally built a fire line around half of a fire. But first they must train a crew of 21 men to work as one.

Passing physical and mental tests On an unusually cool May afternoon, the newly formed crew busily digs a shallow trench along an impossibly steep hillside in Glendora. At the top of the line someone calls out, “Take more!” Then like a slinky on a staircase the rest repeat one at a time, “Take more!” This is the crew’s first line drill segment of the precise

training required by the U.S. Department of Forestry. The drill hones communication and cooperation as well as the endurance required to control a fire. The men must learn to move fast, but not wear themselves out. Each must be able to pace himself. If one is taking too much earth, he may get tired before the others, slowing down the entire line. “This is where the cohesion begins,” Mr. Gorman

A member of the Dalton Hotshots uses a hose to keep a pile of burning brush under control during a prescribed burn on May 25 near Mount Baldy. The burn was part of a plan to reduces potential fuel just above the village allowing crews to make a stand in case a wild fire threatened it from the north.

said of the line drill. “Everyone learns their role and communication is a big part of it.” Before fighting a real fire, the crew of rookies and veterans alike must pass a series of rugged tests. This includes hours of classroom preparation, physical endurance training, technical firefighting skills, CPR and cutting and felling trees. Along the way, the 21 different personalities become one unit under the guidance of their superintendent, Mr. Robles. Growing up in East Los Angeles Mr. Robles, now 51, loved sports and had a desire to work with his hands. He came to firefighting later than most, starting as a seasonal employee at age 34, about 10 years older than the average. He was accepted into the apprentice program to become a full-time firefighter just over a year later, narrowly making it before the federal age deadline. He advanced quickly, in part because of his maturity, but also because he was determined to succeed. “I didn’t have time to sit and wait at my age,” he recalled. “So I did what had to be done.” Mr. Robles started out in the Clear Creek station on Angeles Crest Highway, but soon joined an engine crew. After years of successful advancement, he was offered the superintendent position at Dalton. A crew can be deployed for 2-week periods repeatedly throughout fire season resulting in relocation for months at a time. Mr. Robles, married with 2 teenage children, says the hardest part of his job has been the long hours away from his family. “It was particularly hard when the kids were young,” he said. “But we talked as much as we could and it got a lot easier when everyone had a cell phone.” The experience Mr. Robles brings to the job is critical, particularly for the younger men, as his sense of responsi-

bility to his crew is a driving force. He describes a situation the crew faced during the Arizona Horseshoe fire. The crew was digging a line, but the terrain was unsafe so he ordered the crew to back off until the fire had burned through. “You’ve got to be squared away with what you are doing because you have lives underneath you,” he explains. He credits the U.S. Forest Service with giving him the opportunity to raise his family in Claremont and send his children to good schools. “This agency helped me and my family start our lives so I feel a sense of loyalty,” Mr. Robles said.

S

A big part of the team cott Gorman, 38, is one of 2 captains serving under Mr. Robles. He joined the Army shortly after graduating from Pomona High School, but got a medical release because of complications following an appendectomy. He did not feel the military was a good fit and so he gave himself a deadline. “I had 5 years to find a career-based job,” he explained. If he failed to secure a position, Mr. Gorman vowed to return to the military. However, a chance encounter and tragedy put him on the path he would eventually follow. As part of his career quest, Mr. Gorman joined AmeriCorps, a service based organization created by President Bill Clinton. While there, he met a firefighter with El Cariso hotshots named Cesar O’Campo. The 2 men trained together, forming a close friendship. Mr. Gorman could at last envision his career. On Martin Luther King Day in 1994, the crew had the day off. “It was a beautiful day,” Mr. Gorman said. “And Cesar said he was going rock climbing.” Mr. O’Campo fell and later died from his injuries. His death was a shock, but it also inspired Mr. Gorman to pursue firefighting.

“I am a stone thrown into this job. Cesar is the one who grabbed that stone and threw it,” he said. “I can say he completed his mission, for I would not be here without him.” Mr. Gorman left AmeriCorps and continued his pursuit of firefighting by joining a newly installed college crew at Mount San Antonio College. Like Mr. Robles, he advanced quickly and in 2 years was a seasonal firefighter with the Forest Service. Fate stepped in again when he met fellow firefighting student Sarah Barnes. A friendship quickly formed and before long they were dating. “We had to keep it quiet because we were fighting fires together,” Mr. Gorman recalled. However, love prevailed and in February of 2000 the couple were married. Firefighting is more than just a job for Mr. Gorman, he considers it his passion. He describes a kind of synchronicity where his body is working hard and he remains energized. “For long periods of time I work with the burn in my legs and body to tap into a groove to keep it moving,” he said. “Emotions get the best of you when you see fire for the first time.” The danger of the job is always present as he found in 2004 while fighting the Noon fire in Stafford, Arizona. While taking a break, the crew was struck by lightning. The power of the shock was so powerful he was totally im-

mobilized. Fortunately, it was not direct hit, but a splash hit where the lighting jumps from another object to the human victim because the body offers lower resistance. The bolt entered both of his legs at the ankle and shot up through his body exiting at the back of his neck. The incident left second-degree burns at the entry point and burned all of the hair off of his legs, body and arms. His wife Sarah was 8 months pregnant with their first child at the time. The injuries sustained in the lightning strike required that Mr. Gorman be evacuated to an area hospital. His superintendent, Mr. Robles, was right there with him. “He cares about everybody,” Mr. Gorman said. “He would not leave my side.” In a canyon above Mount Baldy village, the new crew is performing another important task of removing fuel from a ravine before the start of fire season. They have spent months cutting the brush and now have to burn the slag heaps. Such prescribed burns are an important tool in keeping wild fires away from homes. Squinting in the sunlight, Mr. Gorman regards a smoldering pile he is dousing with a hose. “Here in southern California, you have great job security because we always have wildfires and the U.S. Forest Service are the ones to fight them,” he said.
