STATE OF MIND City council tries to talk about positives in a year of cost cutting
See page 5

It was difficult to sugarcoat the tough year Claremont faced in 2009-10. At the second annual State of the City address hosted by the Chamber of Commerce, city council members spoke of the hardships Claremont has dealt with in recent times and its plans for the future. “The city faced the biggest financial challenge we have ever tackled this year,” Councilmember Larry Schroeder said. About 115 chamber members attended the luncheon on Thursday afternoon at Candlelight Pavilion.

realize there’s some bias here, but our latest honors in the 2010 National Newspaper Association Better Newspaper Contest really don’t surprise me. As I watch the COURIER staff do their jobs each week, it’s easy to feel like Claremont has the best weekly newspaper in the country.
I don’t write a lot about newspaper contests, because it’s not really an assessment of the overall quality of a publication. Any contest is subjective to the tastes of the people judging. What separates this contest from others is the level of competition. It’s a national contest covering an entire year for community newspapers. So when I say Brenda Bolinger won first place for her obituary on T. Willard Hunter, it really means something. Brenda has this way of asking questions in such an unobtrusive manner it makes subjects feel at ease. This skill is especially important for writing obituaries because you deal with family members during a grief stricken time.

But what makes this special is the fact that her subject was T. Willard Hunter. What better way to toast his life than by writing something deemed best in the nation by working journalists. I have a feeling there’s a smile on his face right now. We often have to prod Landus Rigsby into entering any type of contest. Our education and sports writer is a self-assured, positive, family man. He is well respected in our community and never promotes himself. His feature on 12-year-old race driver Ricky Schlick won an honorable mention for sports feature writing.

The aspect of Landus’ writing I enjoy most is his quotations. I’m not quite sure how he does it, but he has a knack for simply letting the subjects tell their story. What a novel concept. And then there is COURIER graphic designer Jenelle Rensch. She won 2 awards for small page ad design. We like to think she has honed her graphic skills working at the COURIER (this is where management takes credit). She also goes to school at Cal State Fullerton in her spare time. Jenelle’s role at the newspaper continues to increase and evolve as she not only designs many of our ads, but also produces the classifieds, and as of late, has been our calendar editor. We have come to the conclusion there’s really nothing she cannot do. I’m happy to say you will continue to see her outstanding work throughout the COURIER in new and different ways. Obviously I’m proud of all the work the staff produces. I hope this column is a reminder what a special publication the COURIER really is. Based on your support, it’s part of what makes Claremont such a great place to live.

Freund takes the helm as CGU’s 15th president

T

he search for Claremont Graduate University’s next president is over. CGU announced Professor Deborah Freund as its 15th president on Wednesday morning, bringing to an end a search process that began in February 2009 when former CGU President Robert Klitgaard announced his resignation.

“To be asked to lead an educational institution of such distinction and accomplishment as CGU in these changing times for higher education is a challenge and a privilege,” Ms. Freund said in a released statement. “Meeting such challenges going forward will be possible because of the dedication, talent, and enthusiasm of CGUs trustees, faculty, students, alumni, and staff.” With her appointment, Ms. Freund is the first woman to hold the office of president at CGU. The graduate institution has existed since 1925. According to CGU Board Chair Donald Baker, Ms. Freund’s strong academic background was one of the factors that led to her appointment. “Professor Freund personifies the 85-year tradition of dedication to academic excellence in research and teaching that is CGU’s hallmark,” Mr. Baker said. “As an internationally recognized scholar and sought-after expert in the field of health-care policies and economics, she will have a decidedly positive impact on CGU’s students and faculty. We are fortunate that she will bring extensive administrative experience to her service as president of Claremont Graduate University.” Ms. Freund will not officially begin her term until this fall, after she completes her current duties at Syracuse University. At Syracuse, she has been vice chancellor and provost (1999-2006), a Distinguished Professor of Public Administration of Economics for the university’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and

Public Affairs, and a senior research associate at the school’s Center for Policy Research. The incoming CGU president also served as vice chancellor and dean of the faculties, special advisor to the president and vice president on academic affairs at Indiana University Bloomington prior to working at Syracuse University. Her other academic credentials include a PhD in Economics, MA in Applied Economics and MPH in Medical Care Administration from the University of Michigan. Along with her various professional positions, Ms. Freund has also been a recipient of several awards and honors every decade since the 1980s. She was named a W.K. Kellogg Foundation National Leadership Fellow in 1986, received the Association of Public Policy Analysis and Management’s Kershaw Prize for best young public policy researcher in 1991, was selected to be in the National Women’s Hall of Fame in 2005 and is listed among the 500 Most Influential People in US Health Care. “Everyone in the university community is looking forward to welcoming Professor Freund as a scholar, an administrative leader, and a visionary to help us chart our course for the future,” said CGU Board Trustee Beverly Ryder, chair of the Presidential Search Committee. “From the earliest contact with Professor Freund, the members of the search committee could see how her interests and accomplishments were a strong match with CGU’s mission to educate the next generation of society’s leaders.” Ms. Freund’s husband—labor economist Thomas Kneisner—will eventually join her at CGU as a university professor for CGU’s School of Politics and Economics. The date for Ms. Kneisner to begin has not been set. Current CGU Interim President Joseph Hough will carry out his term until Ms. Freund completes her obligations at Syracuse University. “CGU’s pacesetting record of transdisciplinary re-

search and teaching mirrors what I have also been committed to during my 30 years in the academy,” Ms. Freund said. “More importantly, this perspective is not only central to our success in the university, but to finding the best ways of approaching and solving the complex problems we all face in the world today.”

Managing city traffic fills council agenda
Mountain Avenue crosswalk denied The city council voted against the installation of a new marked crosswalk on Mountain Avenue, a street used by many pedestrians and students on their way to school. The city was asked to look into building the crosswalk somewhere between Foothill Boulevard and Harrison Avenue due to the high volume of pedestrians on the street. After considering the need for a crosswalk, city staff recommended against building it based on the city’s crosswalk policy. They also found there were not enough regular pedestrians on the street to warrant a new crosswalk. The Traffic and Transportation Commission previously considered the proposal, and was not in favor of adding a new crosswalk on the street. “I think it’s a false sense of security to put crosswalks in where they’re really not warranted and studies show that they do not add to pedestrians’ safety,” said Anne McLoughlin, chair of the commission. Both El Roble Intermediate School and Mountain View Elementary School are located on Mountain Avenue and many students walk to and from school each day. In 2006, an 83-year-old woman was killed while walking across

Mayor Linda Elderkin

Mountain Avenue when a motorist struck her. The woman’s family later sued the city. The council voted 4 to 1 against building the crosswalk. Only Mayor Linda Elderkin was in favor. Ms. Elderkin said she was concerned about children “constantly darting across the street there” and wanted the city to do more to be friendly to pedestrians. “I don’t feel the city is making adequate efforts to make this city walkable,” she said. “We talk constantly about this but do very little.” The council voted unanimously to make some updates to the city’s crosswalk policy based on new information and studies that have been released since the city originally drafted the policy 10 years ago. Village in-lieu parking fees changed With the hopes of attracting new businesses to the Village, the city will lower the in-lieu parking fee requirement for new businesses from $9000 to $1000. The in-lieu parking program allows business owners to purchase credits

when their property has insufficient parking spaces based on code requirements. The Village currently has a vacancy rate of about 20 percent, said Housing and Redevelopment Manager Brian Desatnik. The city hopes the lowered fee structure will “promote economic development and bring in new businesses and fill some of the existing vacancies,” Mr. Desatnik said. To justify the lower in-lieu rate, the city commissioned a study of Village parking that found a surplus of 125 public parking spaces in the Village. Under the new system, businesses meeting certain criteria for the lower rate would be required to sign a contract with the city requiring employees to park in designated areas. City council members hope the requirement will free up more parking spaces for Village shoppers. The council voted 3 to 2 in favor of the lowered rate, with council members Peter Yao and Larry Schroeder against. Mr. Yao felt the city would be better off waiving the fee altogether. He mentioned a different city study of Village parking a few years ago that found there was insufficient parking in the Village. “It doesn’t pass the smell test,” he said of the competing findings in the studies.

CUSD budget a central focus at public forum

T

he Claremont Unified School District may have a hard sell when it comes to community support for a bond measure this November.

CUSD board members Mary Caenepeel and Jeff Stark spoke with 20 members of the Claremont community at an Active Claremont public forum on Thursday night at the Claremont Public Library. Residents were able to dialogue with the board members and share their concerns regarding the district’s current financial state. “We try to have programs giving people information that they otherwise might not get,” said Active Claremont President Mary Noonan. For more than 90 minutes, the board members and Claremont residents addressed several topics. The discussion items included updated technology, deeper partnerships between CUSD and the City of Claremont and Claremont Colleges, more of a Career Technical Education focus, the present estimated $30 million outstanding balance from Measure Y and current Claremont Faculty Association/CUSD negotiations. Mr. Stark believes public forums are essential for board members and district officials to extract public opinion. Plans are in the works for similar forums to be held in the future. “We’ve met with Pilgrim Place, we’ve met with the League of Women Voters, we’ve met with students, [Claremont] Kiwanis and parents,” Mr. Stark said. “We’re trying to meet with as many people as we can. Really the message that we’re hearing loud and clear is that ‘we’re not hearing from the district.’” The event allowed Claremont residents Peter and Nora Vignoli the opportunity to voice their thoughts in

a public setting. Mr. Vignoli believes the district can be successful in passing a bond but said the district needs to be clearer as to why a bond is necessary. “I think the ultimate decision is weighing your personal financial condition against what the community and state are facing in the next couple of years,” he said. “This is a highly educated community. I think they [district] can overcome the 55 percent requirement but I [also] think they need to be more specific in terms of where the money is going. People don’t want to contribute blindly.” Both Mr. Stark and Ms. Caenepeel discussed the district’s deficit spending over the past school year and how the district is slated to continue to do so in the 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13 school years. According to the latest CUSD data, the district will deficit spend by $5,353,257 over the next 3 years and will have taken its reserves from 9.68 percent to .44 percent by the 2012-13 year. Yet Mr. Stark believes the district has areas that need to be addressed beyond its general fund. The CUSD board member said another bond measure would allow

the district to keep up with technology, pay off current district debts and equip Claremont schools with more Green and energy efficient configurations. “The one thing the bond allows you to do is have more local control,” Mr. Stark said. “You’re not dependent on the state to give you money for technology. And most state money now comes with strings attached. They’ll give you money—you just have to come up with half of the money.” One area Active Claremont member Brian Bowcock hopes to see the district improve is its local partnerships. He also wants to explore the idea of more community involvement in projects the district may undertake in the future. “I do not understand why the school, city and the colleges don’t cooperate as much as I think they could or should,” Mr. Bowcock said. “I’m not in the inner circle to know how that works but I know that the camaraderie between the University of La Verne, the City [of La Verne] and the schools—it’s a perfect triangle.”

Thursday, July 8 An intoxicated woman was arrested after ringing a doorbell late at night. At 10:44 p.m., a resident near Berkeley Avenue and 11th Street heard her doorbell ring and tried to look through the peephole to see who was at the door. The woman outside put her finger over the peephole so the resident could not look out of it. The resident called police after the incident and they located the woman not far from the home. Amy Berry, 33, smelled of alcohol and was arrested for public intoxication.

Stranded dog in good shape after police capture
n Thursday, July 8 an abandoned pit bull was captured by police, but not before the dog gave them a scare. Around 8:30 a.m., a resident saw a man pull his white SUV to the side of the road near Indian Hill Boulevard and Mt. Carmel Drive and drop off the pit bull. The driver then drove off and the resident called police. Police responded to the area and located the abandoned pet. When they approached the animal, it became frightened and started to charge in a hostile manner towards the officers. Police decided to use a non-lethal weapon, a 40millimeter sponge round, to subdue the animal and were eventually able to capture it. The dog did not suffer any injuries during the encounter and was transported to the Inland Valley Humane Society by police. It was not wearing any identification tags.

City looks for positives in difficult budget year

T

he ceremony kicked off with the Pledge of Allegiance led by a local Boy Scout troop, the singing of the National Anthem by the Moultrie Academy of Music, Voice & Dance and an invocation by Rev. Sharon RhodesWickett of the Claremont United Methodist Church.

After lunch, all 5 city council members took the stage to talk about the city’s challenges, accomplishments and goals for the upcoming year. For the third straight year, Claremont has cut costs, staff and services to the community in order to maintain a balanced budget. Revenue has decreased from a high of $22 million to its current level of $20 million. “At the same time, operational costs have continued to increase, especially in areas of personnel and insurance,” Mr. Schroeder said. In the face of the financial challenges, Mayor Linda Elderkin spoke about the council’s philosophy in navigating the city through tough times. “We have preserved, protected and nurtured the safety of our community, the physical beauty of our city and reaffirmed our commitment to providing the high level of service our residents expect from Claremont,” she said. A number of the city’s accomplishments were also
Notice of Public Hearing for Proposed Ordinance Amending Title 18 of the Claremont Municipal Code (Cityʼs Sign Code) Pertaining to Sign Face Changes, Freestanding Signs, Temporary Signs, and Sign Programs (File #10-CA01)
Notice is hereby given that the City Council of the City of Claremont will hold a PUBLIC HEARING to consider a proposed ordinance amending Title 18 of the City of Claremont Municipal Code (Cityʼs Sign Code). The public hearing is scheduled to be held on Tuesday, July 27, 2010, beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the City Council Chamber, 225 W. Second Street, Claremont. The proposed changes to the Sign Code will expand opportunities for businesses to identify themselves. Individual businesses, excepting those located in the Claremont Village District, would be permitted to have freestanding identification signs in addition to building-mounted signs. For businesses located within centers, shared multi-tenant signs would be allowed and individual business signs would be prohibited. The appropriateness of signs would be determined by the size of the property, the character of the surrounding development and adjacent streets, and the design of the development where the signs would be located. The ordinance would establish that the City would adopt a MultiTenant Center Sign Enhancement Program in the future by separate City Council resolution. Other proposed changes include a reduction to the separation requirements for signs located adjacent to the 10 Freeway, clarifications to the Sign Code regarding sign programs for individual businesses and sign face changes, and incorporation into the Sign Code of the temporary provisions pertaining to banners, A-frame signs, and window signs that the City approved in November 2009. The Planning Commission reviewed the proposed ordinance on July 6, 2010, and recommended approval of the ordinance. The City prepared an Initial Study in accordance with the Cityʼs guidelines for implementing the California Environmental Quality Act for the ordinance. The Initial Study found that the project would not result in significant adverse impacts and no mitigation measures are required. A Negative Declaration is proposed. The public review period for the Initial Study and Proposed Negative Declaration extended from June 23 to July 12, 2010. The public is invited to submit written comments on the proposed ordinance to Principal Planner Belle Newman, Claremont City Hall, P.O. Box 880, Claremont, CA 91711. The public is also invited to make comments on the proposed ordinance at the public hearing. Questions may be directed to Belle Newman at (909) 399 5470. The documents are available for public review at Claremont City Hall, 207 Harvard Avenue, the Claremont Public Library, 208 Harvard Avenue, and the Cityʼs website, www.ci.claremont.ca.us. Finally, in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, any person with a disability who requires a modification or accommodation in order to participate in a City meeting should contact the City Clerk at 909/399 5461 “VOICE” or 1-800/7352929 “TT/TTY” at least three (3) working days prior to the meeting, if possible.

highlighted at the event. The city has received numerous grants to make progress on projects like Padua Park, streets and parks improvements, the College Avenue affordable housing project and the expansion of the parking lot at the Claremont Wilderness Park. The city has also pushed forward on an aggressive plan to promote sustainability in the community. The city formed a Sustainability Committee and has passed stricter regulations to conserve natural resources such as the Water Conservation ordinance and the Water Efficient Landscaping ordinance. “To date, the city has saved 1.5 million gallons of water and saved $45,000 in energy costs,” Councilmember Corey Calaycay said. To meet the demands of the future, the city council has made economic development a top priority with programs like the Tourism BID, the Community Development Block Grant and ordinances to ease restrictions on signage and allow drive-through businesses. The major projects on the city’s horizon include the affordable housing project, with construction beginning in the fall, and business growth at Pepper Tree Square

and the Auto Center. Other priority projects such as design plans for a new police station will be on hold until funding is available. Councilmember Sam Pedroza said Norm’s restaurant wants to open at the Auto Center and plans have already been submitted to the Architectural Commission. The city also plans to set up a task force on economic development to help grow and diversify the city’s sales tax income. “This next year will be filled with transition and change, but we will continue to move forward,” Ms. Elderkin said. Words of gratitude and a round of applause were given to Captain Gary Jenkins, who served his last day working for the city on Thursday after nearly 33 years on staff. After the event, Ms. Elderkin said she hoped the crowd left with the message that the city would continue to make adjustments and remain resilient in the face of the present challenges. “We’re not doing great but we’re okay,” she said. “We will get through this and continue to serve the community the best we can.”

I love food and it shows: the pleasures of a food addict
by Jan Wheatcroft

I

arrived in London in May of this year to meet up with friends and to reacquaint myself with favorite eateries. My tastes are not high end. I just enjoy fresh food, well prepared and seasoned, with plenty of flavor.
Organic and locally sourced ingredients are preferred when possible but I am most often willing to try all types of cuisines and hanging out in a supermarket, farmer’s market or food speciality store is my idea of heaven. And you should see what products I manage to squirrel away in my suitcase, such as interesting spices, local honeys and oils, interesting pates and mustards, dried mushrooms and kitchen utensils. As for window browsing, I can spot a tarte au citron from a half a block away and my nose can find a good bakery in any city. On this trip I ate many of my meals in my “own” London flat or in the homes of friends throughout the 5 countries that I visited. However, I would like to share with you some of the culinary delights I experienced during my travels. My first stop was London and almost immediately I went with two friends to our favorite South Indian restaurant in Hammersmith called Sagar. I go there every time I visit as I love thalis, idlies and dhosas, which are specialities of Southern Indian cooking. A thali is a plate (or a banana leaf in India) with rice in the center and many different curries both wet and dry, soupy dishes and a cooling yogurt dish (raita) and other spicy choices. One mixes the tastes and then eats and it is so good. The best part is the thin, crispy, flat, fried tortilla-like bread served with really tasty dips. The lunch is inexpensive and filling. Our second traditional stop is at a lovely old pub called the Churchill which is draped in plants and green growth. There, we always order the Thai pad thai with shrimp which is always good, cheap and tasty. We say, “this time we’ll try something else,” but we never do. In Italy I visited a friend who has a house in a small hillside village in Tuscany outside of Pisa called Campiglia. It is not a tourist place. The restaurants serve the locals and the few visitors who arrive.

When we ate out I found the food to be wonderful, especially the pasta. But it was the pizza which I could have feasted on at every meal. We went to a small restaurant which mainly focused on pizza. It was very thin and crispy and did not have a lot of sauce as we are used to here. The sauce was covered with splotches of cheese and then topped with a fresh salad of arugula which has a spiciness of its own. So delicious. I didn’t leave a crumb. In Holland I walked a lot. I was there in the beginning of June which was also the season for the fresh raw herrings which are sold for a short while from carts all around Amsterdam. (When the fresh ones finish one can order the pickled rollmops which don’t have the same impact for me.) I was in heaven. I would order a bun with a big fat herring, some chopped onion and a crispy pickle and walk along the canals crunching and chewing happily away. These I consumed for breakfast, for mid-morning snacks and late afternoon snacks, often followed by a freshly made scoop (or two) of ice cream. Sometimes I sat in the sun next to a canal and fed the pigeons bits of the bread. In Sweden I lived way out in the country in a traditional red wooden house near farms and woods. We mostly cooked at home rather than eating out. My friend, Susanna, is a good vegetarian cook. She and her husband go into the woods each fall and collect mushrooms, which they dry and use in dishes as long as they last. When I arrived Susanna prepared her favorite pasta dish for me. First she melted some butter and stirred in a crushed vegetable bouillon cube, added some soy

sauce and then lots of cream. To this she added the dried forest mushrooms and let the sauce cook slowly for a while. This was poured over hot, drained pasta and sprinkled with chives and parsley and freshly grated parmesan cheese. It was soooo rich but soooo good. In Sweden we ate a lot of salmon, grilled and cured. In fact I ate it in the form of dill and salt cured graved lox every morning on toast with butter and lemon. Another Swedish favorite fast meal was various jars of herrings in sauces such as mustard, wine, or sour cream—their brands are better than ours—fresh sour cream, chives, toast and crackers. It quieted the howling hunger before I took off on the next adventure. Greece was experiencing a heat wave this summer. We went to the island of Skopelos where I have friends and where I have spent many a happy summer over the past 15 plus years. As usual we were taken by my friends to Agnondas, a tiny village on a small inlet and we ate at the family taverna overlooking the sea. A few small fishing boats rocked in the water and one could see the large tour ships and ferries passing in the distance. We ate my favorite dishes cooked perfectly as they have always been. Slices of crispy and light calamari and grilled octopus for starters with baskets of crusty bread. Tiny fried fish which one pops whole into the mouth. A large poached Skorpina fish which is poisonous alive but cooked is sweet and mellow. Bowls of Greek summer salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, onions and fresh feta cheese; plates of creamy feta cheese with olive oil and oregano sprinkled on top and with a fish roe salad called Taramasalata all salty and pink as well as the yogurty tsatsiki with cucumbers mixed in. We even tried the fiery tsipuro drink, made from the grape residue after the wine pressing. It is an acquired taste and can quickly go to one’s head. This was food I remembered, which I loved years before and found still as good to the tongue as to the memory. This is one aspect of travel I love; the tastes of the locales where I visit, trying new things and revisiting old places and foods. Even if I should be disappointed there is always another day and more than one meal to look forward to.

Political expression

Dear Editor: In response to Christine Liles letter (July 14th), I find it a bit amusing to think that our Fourth of July parade should be “a celebration, forget all the politics!” If I remember my history correctly, isn’t the Fourth, or Independence Day, a political occasion? Isn’t it a celebration of our country’s independence from foreign political powers? There is room, in celebrating our unique freedom in this country, to give place for military men and women, school bands, gays, politicians, etc. As a participant in the parade for the past several years, I know that not everyone lining the street along the parade route supports the position we take urging the ending of the war. But, it also is heartening to know that large segments of people celebrating that day loudly and heartily endorse our presence! Their cheers and encouraging comments attest to their support! Every Friday, when we carry our placards at Arrow Highway and Indian Hill, there is a similar affirmation. Without our solicitation, cars honk their support at they pass. The honks vary—the lowest we have had: 475 cars honking in one hour. The highest? 725 honks in one hour! Most weeks, we average right around 600 an hour. There are a lot of US citizens out there who also believe this war should end. An

Shocked and offended

[Editor’s note: The following letter was addressed to “Parade Organizer” with a copy forwarded for publication.’ Dear Parade Organizer: On the Fourth of July I attended the Claremont parade with my whole family, including my grandchildren (4), as we have many times in the past. My granddaughter was a participant and we were all excited to see her with the junior high cheerleaders. Our aniticpated excitement quickly turned to shock. We were shocked and offended by the political statements made by the gay group and their supporters promoting their agenda, which was gay marriages. This was completely in opposition to the California voters who passed a law in two separate elections upholding traditional marriage. There were others who I spoke with who were very offended also. Please tell me where was [sic] the military, the veterans, the bands and other traditional groups? On the other hand, the La Verne pa-

rade had strict guidelines that prevented political influences and this is more appropriate for a happy birthday America parade, where American traditions are valued and shared. In the future, please keep it a wholesome family event, as it should be. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

dom of our country. I guess what I am trying to say is the Fourth of July parade shouldn’t be a political circus. The parade should represent our Christian heritage. The freedom of our forefathers who fought and gave there [sic] lives for our freedeom (not a Doo Dah Parade.) It also should honor and show respect to our flag that represents our true and honorable history. God bless America am proud to be an American.

Distasteful parade

Dear Editor: Red, White and Blue, a day to honor our forefathers and the hisotry of America and the men and women who have fought and are fighting for our freedom. I have come to the Claremont Fourth of July parade since my childhood. I’m a fourth generation Claremontier [sic] and still reside in Claremont. The parade on Sunday the Fourth of July brought our community together as always which includes little children, families and, of course, lots of liberals. I find the parade distasteful when gay rights church affiliations and there [sic] causes are more important then [sic] the honoring of our forefathers and the men and women who are fighting for the free-

[Editor’s note: This is last series of letters in opposition to the inclusion of gay rights groups in the parade that will be published. The COURIER has, and will always, support equal rights for all Claremont citizens. —KD] CORRECTION Re: “Helping others by welcoming them to The Club,”published Wednesday, July 14.

Barbara E. Shyer
elementary school teacher, fine arts education consultant, church member and volunteer
Barbara E. Shyer, a Claremont resident for more than 60 years, died on July 3, 2010. She was 89. Mrs. Shyer was a renowned first, fourth and fifth grade elementary school teacher and private tutor for 40 years. She was born on April 5, 1921 at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Los Angeles and raised in Beverly Hills. An aspiring screen actress, Mrs. Shyer attended classes at Ben Bard Drama, a school in Hollywood. While pursuing this career, she worked part-time as a model at May Company Wilshire. In 1943, after engaging in practice teaching at University and Hancock Park Elementary Schools, she obtained a bachelor’s degree and teaching credential from the University of California, Los Angeles. At UCLA, she met 4-sport star Jackie Robinson, who rode in the same bus from Westwood. Mrs. Shyer was disturbed that Mr. Robinson had to sit in the back of the bus, so she often went to talk with him there. On August 8, 1944, at the First Congregational Church in Los Angeles, she married Bruce N. Shyer, a graduate of UCLA and the Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, Long Island, New York, who served in the US Navy as a lieutenant, junior grade. While Mr. Shyer was serving in World War II, Mrs. Shyer was teaching at Bret Harte Elementary in Burbank (1943-44); Brundage Private School, Long Island (1944-45); and Garfield Elementary, San Diego (1945). After the war ended, the Shyers became enchanted by the tranquility of the tree-lined streets and orange and lemon groves of Claremont. They rented a room in the home of Chester G. Jaeger, later the Mayor of Claremont, on Indian Hill Boulevard. While Mr. Shyer pursued and obtained a master’s degree in educational administration from Claremont Graduate School (now University) and became a school principal, Mrs. Shyer continued her teaching career at Upland Elementary School and then transferred to Sycamore Elementary School in Claremont where she taught under the supervision of Eleanor Daly Condit, the principal for the entire school district at that time. Her tutoring and teaching continued at Foothill Country Day School (1963-67) in Claremont. In 1967, she returned to the Claremont Unified School District at Condit Elementary School, remaining there until she retired from the classroom in June 1983. Upon her retirement, Condit parents, faculty, staff and students planted a tree in front of the school in her honor. Mrs. Shyer’s Condit students regularly achieved test scores higher than comparable classes, an accomplishment attributed to her innovative “theatrical” teaching techniques. As a result of this demonstrated ability to effectively use drama and music as teaching tools, she was offered a newly created, post-retirement position as a district-wide consultant for the fine arts. Subsequently, she mentored at various elementary schools in Claremont and taught many other teachers how to use musical instruments, recordings and plays instead of routine textbook lessons to understand grammar, history and many other subjects. She drew upon her early Hollywood dramatic training to help generations of students to learn. Throughout her 40 years of teaching member of the Scripps College Fine Arts Foundation. Prior to Mr. Shyer’s death in 1991, the Shyers had been married for 47 years. They had originally met at age 2, as their parents were family friends. They became reacquainted when Mr. Shyer’s family returned to the Los Angeles area and on the occasion of Mrs. Shyer’s surprise 16th birthday party. Former Los Angeles Dodgers executive and veteran radio and television broadcaster, Tommy Hawkins, said of Mrs. Shyer, “She was a life force. When she came into a room, she had a presence. When she greeted you, she wore an ingratiating smile, which made you appreciate her humanity. She was a great lady.” Her son Brent added: “Mom had a great sense of humor. She truly loved her family, church, students and the community. The legacy she established is the exemplary balanced life she led and the hundreds of individuals she positively influenced along the way with her love for all.” Mrs. Shyer is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Bruce Shyer, Jr. and Nancy Shyer of Oakland; her sons, Brian Shyer and Brent Shyer, both of Claremont; her 3 grandchildren, Amy, Justin and Allen Shyer; her sister-in-law, Patty Marks of Altadena; her niece, Michelle Kachikis of Los Angeles; and her 3 nephews, Craig Marks of Santa Barbara, Richard Shyer of Alta Loma and Laurence Shyer of Brooklyn, New York. A gathering to celebrate her life is being planned. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Christian Science Reading Room, 328-B 2nd St., Claremont, CA 91711.

and tutoring, Mrs. Shyer taught hundreds of students. As she walked in the Claremont Village, it was not unusual for nowaccomplished adults, with children of their own, to express gratitude to her for the knowledge and special words of encouragement she imparted to them at a very young and impressionable age. A founding member of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Claremont, to which she belonged for 61 years, Mrs. Shyer served as a second reader from 1963-65 and was instrumental in the building of the current edifice. For years, she regularly volunteered at the Christian Science Reading Room on Second Street. Even recently, she enjoyed helping visitors from the community. Mrs. Shyer enjoyed speaking with everyone and frequently made instant connections with people of all ages. She was also a longtime and active

Annelle Maberry
Annelle Maberry, longtime Claremont resident and the first Pitzer College registrar, died on June 29, 2010. Ms. Maberry was born in Kansas City, Missouri in 1928. In 1956, she moved to California with her husband, Bob Maberry, and their children. Prior to serving as Pitzer’s registrar from 1963 until her retirement in 1992, Ms. Maberry first worked at Claremont Men’s College (now Claremont McKenna College). Over her long career with The Claremont Colleges, she loved her work with students and faculty. Ms. Maberry’s devotion to her family was “legendary,” said her daughter, Sue Maberry. “And her definition of family didn’t stop with blood relatives,” she continued. “With her generous heart, she embraced a huge circle of created family. As a cou-

Claremont Colleges retiree, creative hobbyist
ple, Ann and Bob were the fixed stars for the many who came to them for their wisdom and for some tender care.” Ms. Maberry loved the joy of creating things. She challenged herself to master the art of china painting. Her interest in her Indian heritage led her to become an expert basket-weaver. She exhibited and often sold her work during her retirement years in Grove, Oklahoma. Lately, she had returned to an old interest, painting landscapes. Renowned for her style and refusing to ever get old, Ms. Maberry expressed her unique creativity with her clothes and jewelry. She loved dressing up and going out, and membership in the Red Hat Society gave her plenty of opportunities to pull together a fabulous outfit and enjoy an evening on the town. Of late, she and Bob frequented a local karaoke bar in Calimesa where she would sing. “To the end of her days, she was a beauty to behold,” said her daughter. “May her loving spirit, generous heart, and creative spark be with us always.” Ms. Maberry is survived by her husband of 57 years, Robert Maberry; her daughters, Sue and her partner Cheri, and Sharon and her husband Reuben; her son, Larry; her 6 grandchildren, Michelle, Ian, Angela, Xochi, Marka and Matthew; her 6 great-grandchildren, Jayden, Janessa, Rylan, Madeline, Ashlyn and Calvin; her sister, Dorothy and her husband John; her many nieces and nephews; and her informally adopted grandchildren, Shaun, Aaron, Lance and Christopher who she cherished as family.

Camp gives students a dose of college prep and volleyball

O

ver 30 female high school volleyball players not only improved their skills on the court, but are also more equipped for the college admissions process.

Claremont-Mudd-Scripps’ Aspiring Collegiate Athlete Volleyball Camp provided a 5-day assortment of both athletic and academic activities as participants stayed on campus from Monday through Friday. This year’s camp attracted high school players from throughout the United States and other countries including Singapore and Japan. “We’re on the court 5 to 6 hours a day and then we spend another 5 hours on various academics and counseling,” said Dianna Graves, camp director and CMS women’s volleyball coach. “We try to give them the tools they’ll need to be successful. This is our 3rd year doing this and we’ve really grown every year.” Former CMS women’s volleyball player Lindsay Hull and a host of other collegiate players assisted Coach Graves with running the camp. The collegiate volunteers ranged from Division I athletes to NAIA players. The volunteers took part in a player panel on Tuesday night to share their own experiences in attempting to find the right college. Coach Graves also brought in admissions representatives to work with students on their college essays and interviews. “I’ve been coaching about 10 years and when I’m looking around at high school players, so many of them do not know how to approach the college process,” Coach Graves said. “So we decided to come up with a way for them to get the volleyball [training] and the

other things as well.” According to parents Bill and Linda Leiber, the journey from the state of Washington has been worth it in order to give their daughters, Hannah and Rachel, the chance to participate in this year’s camp. Part of the trip is also being used to visit colleges and universities throughout California. “It’s been really great,” Ms. Leiber said. “The college admission process can be very complex. Someone told me that they had this course so I went online and I checked it out. I really like that this camp provides opportunities and really tries to help the kids out in figuring what they want to do.” Though she missed part of the camp due to an illness, Hannah said she still has gained a significant amount of information through attending the camp. “I still feel like I’m confused but I know more about applying for college,” the 16-year-old incoming junior said. “There were 2 guys from admissions that taught us that if you go in for an interview, you want to give good answers. If you give vague answers, then they’re going to want to ask more questions. There are a lot of things that you have to understand, especially if you want to play a sport.” Though the camp is intended mainly for players who will either be juniors or seniors starting this September, Hannah’s younger sister Rachel, 14, said the camp will cause her to take more of an interest in her future. “I learned that with Division I, it is mostly volleyball at the time and your teammates are like your family,” Rachel said. “That’s fun if you want to donate that much time to volleyball. But with Division III, you have your social life and then volleyball. I don’t know what college I want to attend but this camp

has helped me to want to go online and figure out what colleges might be good for me.”

The public is invited to attend the meeting and make comments on the proposed project. The Architectural Commission is the decision-making body for the project. The Green House® project includes the demolition of four existing single-family homes located at 467 and 475 Taylor Drive and 870 and 858 Harrison Avenue, and the construction of two 10-bed skilled nursing buildings (Green Houses®) on the site where the single-family homes are to be demolished.

The Planning Commission approved the Master Plan on July 6, 2010. The City of Claremont prepared an Initial Study in accordance with the City’s guidelines for implementing the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for the Master Plan project. Based on the Initial Study, the project will not have a significant effect on the environment with the application of mitigation measures that have been agreed to by the project proponent.

Margaret “Peg” Goff
liberation theology pioneer
Longtime Pilgrim Place resident and international missionary Margaret “Peg” Goff died on July 3, 2010 at the age of 93. Born Margaret Louise Pollard in Berkeley on August 3, 1916, she was the daughter of James Frederick and Marie Hitchcock Pollard. Her early life was spent in nearby Salinas with her siblings, Dorothy, Jean and John. In 1931, the family moved to Seattle where she graduated from high school at 16. Returning to her native city, she earned a degree in household science from the University of California, Berkeley in 1938. After returning to Seattle for a postgraduate course in hospital dietetics, Ms. Goff moved to Baltimore, Maryland and worked as a dietician at Shepard-Pratt Hospital until her 1941 marriage to college sweetheart, James Goff. She joined Mr. Goff at Princeton Seminary. Mr. Goff was ordained in Los Angeles and joined the war effort as a US Navy chaplain. They were both present at the christening of the USS Iowa, the ship on which he would serve. This would be the only time in his professional life that he would serve without Ms. Goff as his fellow fraternal worker. “Peg’s life was a grand and significant adventure, shared with James, her husband and life partner of 53 years,” said friend Carol Hopkins. “It is impossible to write about Margaret’s life without realizing that their lives were like finely spun yarn. As individuals they accomplished great things but the sum of their lives was far greater than the parts.” In 1947 the Goffs were appointed, as a couple, by the United Presbyterian Church in the USA Board of Foreign Missions to serve in Colombia as missionaries. They took with them their two small children, Frederick and Harriet, and their third child, Charles, arrived a few years later. For the next 21 years the Goffs served the Presbyterian Church of Colombia and the Confederación Evangélica de Colombia (CEDEC), an Ecumenical At the invitation of Ivan Illich in 1969, the Goffs moved to Cuernavaca, Mexico, home of the Center for Intercultural Documentation. There, in order to put the US missionary force in Latin America in touch with the ideas of Progressive Christians Left and the theology of liberation, the Goffs were assigned to conduct research, write articles and organize seminars for missionaries/fraternal workers under the auspices of the Latin America Department (now the Latin America Working Group) of the Division of Overseas Ministries of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA. Their “document service,” which they started in 1969, of translating and distributing religious documents to church leaders, particularly in the areas of religious liberty and religious implications of social development in Latin America, was a major focus of the research/writing branch of their assignment during this period. Years later, in recognition of their document service efforts, they received the 1985 annual Peace Seeker award given by the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship. In 1973, the Goffs moved to Lima, Peru and became associate editors of the English language Latin American Press Service and Noticias Aliadas. In 1981, they moved to Managua, Nicaragua to work in the Antonio Valdivieso Ecumenical Center. Ms. Goff and her husband maintained a document center in Managua and served as interpreters of the social/political situation for visiting delegations. Many will remember them as leaders of the emblematic weekly Thursday morning demonstrations, hosted by the Ecumenical Committee of US Citizens and held outside the US Embassy in Managua during the Contra War years. At one of those demonstrations, a communiqué was read protesting “the stationing of US warships…in Central American waters.” Ironically, one of the warships was the re-commissioned USS Iowa, the ship on which Mr. Goff had proudly served in WWII. In 1986, the Goffs returned to the US and served for 3 years as directors of the Central American Education Program at the Stony Point Center in New York. They moved to Pilgrim Place in 1989, remaining highly involved in Latin American affairs, especially Nicaraguan concerns. Much of their activism was with Pastors for Peace, emphasizing both humanitarian aid and reform of US policy towards Latin America. They were also active in the Nicaragua-Pomona Valley Friendship Association and participated in founding a parallel organization, the US-Cuba Friendship Association of Pomona Valley. After the death of Mr. Goff on July 23, 1994, Ms. Goff compiled the archives of their combined works and donated them to the Yale University Divinity School Library for use by scholars. Their Personal Papers Collection provides a firsthand perspective on major shifts taking place in Protestant missions in the late 20th century, including the nationalization of Latin American churches and the rise of liberation theology. In a 2003 email sent to her son, Fred, Ms. Goff wrote, “I didn’t climb any mountains in my life but had a career as a Presbyterian missionary for 40 years… I lived in 42 residences in 7 states and 4 foreign countries….” “One could be certain that if climbing mountains could be a metaphor for reaching peaks, Peg climbed many mountains,” Ms. Hopkins commented. “Peg and Jim spent their lives fearlessly battling injustice wherever it appeared. When others ran away, they ran towards.” Ms. Goff is survived by her three children, Fred Goff of Orinda, Harriet Guerrero of Cuernavaca, Mexico and Charles Goff, also of Cuernavaca; her grandson, Gabriel Guerrero; and her great-granddaughters, Sophia Rose and Ava Margaret of Darien, Connecticut. Graveside services took place at Oak Park Cemetery on July 7, 2010, followed by a reception and memorial at Pilgrim Place.

group of Protestant churches and ministries. While Mr. Goff served as principal of Presbyterian schools in Barranquilla and Bogotá, Ms. Goff served as principal of the primary schools in both locations. While Mr. Goff investigated and wrote about religious persecution in Latin America, Ms. Goff accompanied him on his study trips and was his primary collaborator and editor. Social historians use these publications as primary resources on the subject. In the ‘50s, Ms. Goff chaired the publicity committee and worked in women’s ministries of the Presbyterian Colombia Mission. Toward the end of their period in Colombia, the Goffs were instrumental in establishing the Ecumenical Community for Theology and Christian Education in Bogotá, with Ms. Goff as president and Mr. Goff as librarian and publicist. In 1970-71, Ms. Goff organized the “Encuentros” leading up to the international meeting of the World Council of Christian Education in Lima, Peru and its subsequent merger with the World Council of Churches. In preparation, she traveled to each of the participating host cities across 17 Latin American countries.
