Blues and Brews a bad idea
Dear Editor: With the forthcoming July 4th weekend and Claremont’s most home spun celebration, and the statewide policing agencies being at a full enforcement that weekend, how totally wrong I find the idea that the city and the Chamber of Commerce are embarking on a marketing scheme that encourages the imbibing of alcoholic beverages as part of it July 3 “Blues and Brews” promotion. History has shown us that long holiday weekends are a focal point of many alcohol related auto accidents resulting in the maiming and death of unknown numbers of people. While I am neither a tea bagger or a temperance advocate I take issue with the ethics and morality of such a titled event being sponsored by agencies like the city and the chamber. Bad promotion, bad idea, bad public relations over all.

beyond what I can detail, but I have not talked to one government employee who has not felt the impacts. One scenario haunts me. Embedded way down in a long article in a UCSB parent newsletter that detailed the ways the university is grappling with the budget crisis, it stated that most of its former full-time workers (which includes library techs, lab techs, maintenance, registrars, etc.) were now working at part-time status—a maneuver which seriously compromises the sustainability of their jobs for now and the rest of their lives because it impacts their pensions and benefits along with their paychecks. Since when should working at a state university be considered a dead-end proposition? And what are the ramifications of this? We are losing our middle class in this state. We will only be left with rich and poor; and if this comes to pass, we will all be the losers.

The state of our state
Dear Editor: I read with great interest the recent letter to the editor from Hayden Lening about what he considered to be an outlandish increase in California government jobs in 2008. [Letters, “Wake Up California,” Saturday, June 12.] In my opinion, the population increases have put demands on our state’s infrastructure that can only be met with the creation of more jobs if we want to preserve the quality of life here in the ‘golden state.’ These government jobs include the people who pave our roads, collect our garbage, teach our children, provide emergency medical care, keep our streets safe, and protect property and lives when we are threatened by fire. While excesses surely exist, and there always must be checks and balances, government jobs support all of us. In 2010, we have laid off city engineers with years of experience as well as teachers with little seniority, collapsed educational programs, furloughed countless numbers of government workers, cut hours at government institutions (like the DMV) that serve the public, etc.—the list goes

Bonds are not a solution
Dear Editor: No, No, a thousand times no! I’d rather die than say yes. Let me first of all say that I have been a constant supporter of school funding, including passage of needed school bonds. That is until the last Claremont bond issue. On the surface it appeared to be a great answer to serious questions regarding the upgrading and rehab of school facilities. However, as it turned out, the administration of the monies and the execution of the plans resulted in a near disaster. Now, once again the school district is coming hat in hand for more money. The attitude appears to be that some type of mechanism will be adopted, its just which one, the bond or the parcel tax? In the lastest article concerning the matter, it was stated that the school brass would soon sit down and decide what needed to be done. That would establish the size of the bond issue. If, on the other hand, the powers that be decide on the parcel tax, that is like receiving a pay check every month for ever. A major concern of mine is that ad-

ministrators running the school districts are educators, not qualified construction managers or estimators. Projects decided upon will be essentially directed to upgrading facilities as viewed from an educator’s perspective, rather than from a construction management perspective. I disagree, politically, with Kris Meyer on almost everything, but I supported him in his unsuccessful bid for school board because he is qualified in the area of school construction. He is a school builder and understands the mechanics of the trade. There is no one on the current school board who has these qualifications and they will have to rely on untrained administrators to determine the extent of improvements required. My obvious suggestion is that the idea of a school bond or parcel tax be shelved until, and unless, the school board takes a really hard look at its administrative bureaucracy and trims it along with extraneous programs, while starting to bank money for the improvements, rather that relying on the citizens to continue to support bond issues or parcel taxes. I am truly sorry, but the experience of the last bond issue has made me realize that I cannot support another infusion of money into the school district, particularly since the population of Claremont is graying and the number of school children is shrinking.

Dancing in the park
Dear Editor: Like Conrad Casler, I very much enjoy the Monday night concerts in the park in Claremont. [Viewpoint, Saturday, June 12.] An easy solution to his problem of not being able to see is to sit back farther from the band shell. I sit about halfway back and can see and hear very well. I then can also enjoy watching the dancers have a good time. Another solution would be to eat his picnic in the designated spot where picnic tables are provided and then to come over to the band shell area and enjoy the music.

Educator looks forward after distinguished career

C

laremont Unified School District Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Devon Freitas is ready to embrace life after retirement.

Ms. Freitas is slated to retire at the end of this month, closing out 39 years of service with CUSD. The longtime educator is looking forward to spending more time with her family. “It’s really interesting because I’ve counseled people throughout my career about retirement,” Ms. Freitas said. “I know it’s the right time. There are lots of things that I want to do with my family. We’ve just had our 7th grandchild. I want to spend time with my grandchildren. I want to travel and I think it’s time to do something different.” Though Ms. Freitas has worked within CUSD for nearly 4 decades, her history with the district dates back to 1957. At the time, her family moved to Claremont and she attended CUSD schools from 2nd grade on. The Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources graduated from Claremont High School in 1967. Ms. Freitas attended the University of Redlands following graduation, where she earned her undergraduate degree in French and Math. From there, she went to the University of La Verne to earn her teaching credential and Masters degree. “Ever since I could remember, I wanted to be a teacher,” Ms. Freitas said. “I would never think about being anybody else. I think it has to do with making a COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff difference in somebody’s life. Of all the professions, Claremont Unified School District Assistant Super- the one would you could make a difference emotionintendant of Human Resources Devon Freitas will ally and intellectually would be teaching.” retire at the end of the month after 39 years of servAfter subbing and teaching at every grade level exice. She will be replaced by Oakmont Elementary cept for kindergarten during her teaching career, Ms. School Principal Kevin Ward. Freitas then became a counselor at CHS. She moved into administration, spending 4 years as the assistant principal at El Roble Intermediate School and 3 years

as the principal for San Antonio High School to complete her first half of her district tenure. “I loved all the grade levels I taught,” the educator said. “I loved being a junior high assistant principal. The kids at that age are full of energy but they are still childlike in that they still will listen. Also, I believe that San Antonio is the best kept secret in Claremont.” It was 19 years ago that Ms. Freitas was promoted to the district office as the assistant superintendent of human resources. Along with the new position came new responsibilities such as recruiting, maintaining and disciplining teachers and staff. While Ms. Freitas pointed out how more people are impacted by the decisions of a district official, she said her dedication to students still remained the same. “Working in the district office is a much more global experience,” she explained. “It’s a different kind of juggling act where you’re very multitask oriented and working with a lot of different people. The decisions that we make affect a vast amount of people. But it is still about the business of educating students and the driving force is still to educate students.” Ms. Freitas will have a retirement celebration at her home this Saturday. The event will come just 2 days after her final commencement as a district official. Though she will no longer be involved in daily operations with the district, Ms. Freitas will continue to stay informed about the organization she has worked in for a significant part of her life. “My loyalty is to the district and I would be happy to help in any way I can [after retirement],” Ms. Freitas said. “Regarding the day-to-day basis, I’m going to miss the people I’ve worked with. I’ve been unbelievably fortunate to work with quality support staff. I’ve had great assistants who have been amazing. I’m also very proud of the teachers we have. We have outstanding teachers and it’s been great working with them.” —Landus Rigsby

Cutting city budget unpopular, but necessary task

D

uring a long budget workshop Saturday, city council members heard from city departments and a few constituents on the continuing conundrum involving Claremont’s finances.
Working on developing a 2-year financial plan through the 2011-2012 fiscal year, the council is look-

ing at $2.65 million in shortages. According to the reports presented, the city has eliminated 20 positions and reallocated costs to the Redevelopment Agency. The impact overall has been a reduction of full-time city staff from 184 to 148, reduction of part-time staff from 61 to 48, additional use of contractors, changing code enforcement from pro-active to re-active, decreasing the frequency of landscape maintenance, reducing economic development efforts and increasing response time to resident requests. Projected estimates of revenue for the coming year are $41.2 million total, with a little less than half of that ($19.8 million) going to the general fund. The same figures for 2011-2012 show $40.3 million in revenues with $19.9 million coming into the general fund. Total expenditures for the two years are projected at $34,962,448 for 2010-11 and $34,378.912 for 20112012. Criticism and a suggestion came during the opening public comment session, first from former Mayor and Councilmember Sandra Baldonado. Noting that Claremont is both “famous and notorious” for its uniqueness, Ms. Baldonado expressed concerns in a number of areas. She cited a loss of city and school cooperation stating, “I see all of that gone.” Also, Ms. Baldonado noted cuts in other services, noting the reduction of the Claremont Police Department from sworn officers from 42 to 35 “not acceptable.” She expressed a worry that in a number of areas, Claremont is being turned into a “contract city.” Ms. Baldonado suggested that the city put together a commission to look at the budget problems, using “not

only us old-timers,” but others in the city. Extending a critical look at City Manager Jeff Parker, Ms. Baldonado remarked, “I saw no cuts in administrative services. I am very unhappy and very discouraged.” President of the League of Women Voters Ellen Taylor, also a former mayor and councilmember, said that there doesn’t seem to be a problem with the conduct of public business, but that the league sees more problems with state and local finance. “I don’t believe it’s the city’s fault. State problems have shifted to municipalities.” She urged the council to work on describing what the cuts mean. “I leave it in your capable hands,” she said. Catherine Lombardo, a member of the city’s police commission, expressed her concerns “as a citizen and a commissioner, as well as a criminal defense lawyer” for the reductions affecting the police department. “We cannot let down our guard. We have to keep our police department strong. I am asking the council to investigate, to find an area that won’t affect the quality of life, and to work hard to keep our police force strong.” A youngster accompanying Ms. Lombardo added a plea the council “keep the parks safe, strong and well.” Opanyi Nasiali, speaking at the end of the proceedings, commended the council and the city staff, and noted that “effective and affordable government is a way we should be looking.” The work will continue when the council meets again on June 22 to consider the details. Adoption of a budget is also on that agenda.

The youngsters can thank First Lady Michelle Obama, in a way, for the entertainment provided at the school by the Estrellas de Oro y Plata mariachi group. It was a letter that Mrs. Peterson received from the White House last year, and subsequent contact with Sycamore School that inspired the event. In the letter from the White House, received by Mrs. Peterson on the occasion of her 83rd birthday, the First Lady encouraged Mrs. Peterson to “find a way to strengthen our country by serving your community.” Through a friend who is a Sycamore School parent, Mrs. Peterson was contacted and agreed to take part in the school’s Cinco de Mayo celebration last month by talking about Mexico and her background. That background is a multi-cultured one, indeed. Although Mrs. Peterson was born in Los Angeles, her father was from Durango, MexFESTIVE AFFAIR continues on the next page

For a number of years, Mrs. Peterson was a counselor for teenage girls, working in a number of different states in Mexico, as well as Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Missouri in this country. She became Mrs. Donald Peterson when she married at the age of 42. For 32 years, she describes the “time for us was a honeymoon because we made it this way!” Since after her husband’s death 7 years ago, Mrs. Peterson makes her home in the Serenity Villas apartment complex in Pomona. She has also followed Mrs. Obama’s advice there. Last year she arranged a festive party for some 200 friends and neighbors, some of who are disabled.

Red Sox, Angels, D-Backs capture City Tournament titles he Red Sox (Majors Division), Angels (JV Division) and the D-Backs (Minors Division) all had championship victories to celebrate last Saturday. The winners of the City Tournament proved they were the best in their respective divisions after outlasting their opponents in postseason play. Defeating the Rays, 10-2, to advance to the Majors Division championship game, the Red Sox put up double-digit runs again on Saturday en route to a 133 win over the Phillies. The Red Sox had finished in 2nd place in the Majors Division during the regular season. After narrowly escaping defeat with a 10-9 win over the Rays in the JV Division semifinals, the Angels edged out the Yankees in Saturday’s championship game, 5-4. The Angels and the Yankees were also the top 2 teams respectively in the JV Division’s final regular season standings. Nine was the magic number for the D-Backs, who

Claremont teams shine in City of Trees tourney laremont Fastpitch’s 10U Gold, 12U Gold and 14U all-star squads refused to settle for anything less than a tournament championship at last weekend’s City of Trees All-Star Tournament. Combining for an impressive 15-0 record with 119 runs scored and just 10 runs allowed, the 3 teams

outmatched their opponents ranging from teams such as Chino Hills and Norco to Pico Rivera and Santa Fe Springs. Noelle Shoemake powered the Claremont 14U team to a 14-0 victory in last weekend’s championship against Santa Fe Springs by pitching a perfect game. In 5 games, Claremont allowed just 3 runs while scoring 43 times. With the score tied 0-0 in the 7th inning of the 12U championship game, Claremont Gold’s Jamie Woodward hit in teammate Chloe Amarilla to score the winning run as Claremont defeated Pico Rivera, 1-0. Claremont toppled Chino Hills, Norco, Santa Fe Springs and Mission Viejo to reach the finals. The Claremont 10U Gold team had an identical close game with Pico Rivera last weekend, besting their finals opponent, 1-0, to capture the tournament crown. The 10U Gold squad also played the same teams the 12U Gold team played to qualify for the championship game.

Somewhere a place for community through theater
by John Pixley

“You guys make the world awful!”
There was no doubt about this when, minutes later, the gunshot rang out. The bang was enormous in the cavernous theater, and, with it coming from offstage, it was all the more jarring. Of course, it was no surprise—of course, Tony was going to be shot, leaving his beloved Maria to mourn and to hate—but it was a shock nevertheless. This was West Side Story, after all—a musical, yes, but not one ending with laughter and the peal of wedding bells. The Claremont High School production of the masterpiece by playwright Arthur Laurents, composer Leonard Bernstein and lyricist Stephen Sondheim, loosely based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, dealt with the age-old problem of racial hatred and rivalry, set in the gritty world of New York City street gangs in the mid-1900s and with songs that are beautiful and sometimes funny but also cynical and bitter. As Doc, the café proprietor, points out in addressing the gang members, it is about everything that makes “the world awful.” This was pretty heady stuff for the high school students. It made the year-end musical production in Bridges Auditorium a couple weekends ago just that much more big-time. It was a big weekend for Andrew Lindvall and Emily Dauwalder who played Tony and Maria. They shone onstage like the stars on the ceiling of the renowned auditorium, as did the scores of kids who appeared. I was especially impressed with the boys dancing with precise and daring scissor-kicks, choreographed by Daniel Smith, in the high-flying, metropolitan spirit of Jerome Robbins. These students were supported by at least twice as many others behind the scenes, handling the props, costumes, lighting and sound, making the show run smoothly. Although none could be seen, they clearly did an ace job, looking like pros. When I attended on Saturday night, even the sound, which is usually tricky and which always presents a problem in Big Bridges, was pulled off with only the slightest of hitches. And then, of course, there was, as usual, Krista Carson Elhai, the legendary CHS director who, along with Musical Director Joel Wilson, whipped these hundreds of students into spectacular shape. Yes, it may be the case that “boy, is she tired!” after having directed over 250 productions in her 26 years of

observer
teaching theater, as her program bio crankily noted, but, as was evident in this production, she hasn’t lost her touch in getting teenagers to do wonderful, magical stuff. I also can’t praise her enough for having them do mature, provocative work. This show ranked up there with The Laramie Project, the Who’s Tommy and Metamorphisis. Ms. Elhai is confident and isn’t afraid to trust and challenge her students, as well as her audiences, with these brave shows. Yes, there was plenty to be proud of that weekend. Yes, it was the big-time show in big-time Big Bridges. My one real complaint is that the music wasn’t live. I think these hard-working kids and the beautiful, grand venue deserved to be accompanied and serenaded by a live orchestra. What’s more, it was a celebration of community, a celebration of a school and of students and teachers supported, encouraged and nurtured by our community. There was a large, slick program loaded with ads and sponsors, and there were lots of cheering parents and friends. This was very much something put on by the community. I kept thinking that it was like a warmup for our Fourth of July fete. I also saw this sense of community, of a community coming together and growing, at another play, another musical, I saw a few weeks earlier. It was in Temecula, and it was Rent and it was a delightful surprise. What was I doing seeing Rent in Temecula? As I discovered a year or two ago when I went to the Old Town Temecula Community Theater, although it is 60 miles away, it takes no longer to get there than it takes to get to a theater in LA or Santa Monica with the nearly constant city traffic—and the drive is considerably less stressful. Besides, this was the first time I could see this work for less than something like $65 a pop. Still, I was quite wary. Although the relatively new

theater is very attractive and state-of-the-art, the rock opera by Jonathan Larson dealing with prostitutes, druggies and drag queens didn’t seem to fit in this rural (but growing) town with its distinctly western themes, complete with wooden plank sidewalks and country music piped in on the streets. Rent is a long way from La Boheme, though it is based on the Pucinni opera, and Main Street, Temecula, is definitely a long way from Hollywood or Santa Monica Boulevard. It also didn’t help that I had been less than impressed with the previous production I saw there—a victim of a lazy director. When I entered the theater—late, I’m afraid—I was immediately thrilled, even electrified. Not only was there a live band jamming onstage, there was a young, long-haired man, dressed in the red, plaid pants and black t-shirt of a rocker, singing to a stripper about losing his stash and how he might be falling in love with her. I certainly didn’t think I was in Temecula—or what I think of as Temecula—anymore, Toto! The play went on from there and didn’t let up, driven by the band, with its stories of people in New York City dealing with eviction, drug use, whoring, AIDS, homelessness, etc. Many of the songs were punctuated with the strongest of profanities. No doubt some in the audience found the work eye-opening, to say the least, but even they had to admit that it had tremendous heart and was being performed, by the Temecula Valley Players, with tremendous heart. I had the sense that the challenging, daring quality of the work inspired the players to do such a fine job with it. I also had the sense that there was a group of young people in the audience who were cheering especially often and especially loudly. I wondered if they had been to at least one or two of the other performances. I wondered also if they felt that they were finally being heard and understood. This is the sense I have of live theater and the unique, magical power it has. It can bring a community together. It can inspire a community—all the more so when it challenges the community. And it can open eyes in a community to other communities, other worlds, other ways. Theater brings us together to build, strengthen, nurture community. Indeed, as everyone sings in West Side Story, “take my hand, and we’re halfway there.”

OH SWELL! Now we can add being choked by crude oil to being boiled in water, roasted or fried.

School’s out!
by Debbie Carini

I

s there anything more anticipated by children than the final bell of the last day of school? I’m pretty sure that for kids, the last day of school is in close running with Christmas morning and a birthday party as one of the top moments of childhood.

When I was a kid, I ran home on the last day of school, unencumbered by books or papers, dashed into the kitchen, grabbed a Fudgesicle® and made a bee-line for the tv…and a summer of The Beverly Hillbillies and Andy Griffith Show reruns in the morning, and then the afternoon movie at 4 p.m. (during which my mother fretted if I saw such risqué flicks as the musical Gypsy with Natalie Wood as the stripper with a heart of gold, or The Days of Wine and Roses with Jack Lemmon on the bender of a lifetime, or Kim Novak running off with that no-good bum William Holden at the end of Picnic, which, by the way won a Pulitzer Prize for the stage version). Even as a parent, I still look forward to the last day of worrying if homework is done and the uniform is clean, and making the same lunch (my son, by his own CLAREMONT LITTLE LEAGUE City Tournament Majors Division Friday, June 11 3rd Place: Angels 15, Rays 8 Saturday, June 12 Championship: Red Sox 13, Phillies 3 ***** JV Division Friday, June 11 3rd Place: Rays 8, Red Sox 4 Saturday, June 12 Championship: Angels 5, Yankees 4 *****

choosing, has been on a pastrami and rye mid-day diet for about three months now—which is personally stressful, because it makes me feel so uncreative as a mother—to assuage the guilt, I buy the variety bag of chips, just to change-it-up a little for him). In our day and age of overscheduled children, even summer can present a challenge for some. But unless I’ve needed my children to be in the care of responsible adults while I’ve worked, I’ve stuck to my belief that summer should be a time of unadulterated freedom for kids—even if that means that they’ve both seen every episode of SpongeBob Square Pants. In the 1960s of my girlhood, when I couldn’t watch another repeat of Green Acres (starring Eva—I just adore a penthouse view—Gabor, dah-ling), I would roam around town with my sister looking for an old

lady to help who might later leave us her fortune (I think we saw this happen on a 4 o’clock movie). Or, we would visit the neighborhood pool (where the great crisis of summer was a torn bathing cap), or try to craft things from the Brownie handbook that our leaders never let us attempt during regularly scheduled meetings, like making our own Indian paint by smashing rocks with hammers on my dad’s newly paved driveway. In moments of great exasperation over our lollygagging ways (and our scary crafts), my father would try to explain to us that the reasoning behind “summer vacation” was that “not so long ago, children had to help their families pick crops during the summer.” But our father sold insurance and we couldn’t see how we could be of any help with that. Today, I still get a touch of wanderlust during summer …and though my husband thinks our son should “get a job” I enjoy playing “hooky” with him and definitely plan some quality time in the den as we tune in to an episode or two of Shark Week—hey, it’s on the Discovery Channel, I’m pretty sure it’s educational.

Mary St. Martin
Claremont resident Mary St. Martin died at home on May 29, 2010 after a brief illness. She was 89. Born in San Diego to Albert and Mary Goedel on February 18, 1921, she grew up there, graduating from San Diego High School. While in high school, she met her future husband, Louis St. Martin, when his family moved in across the street. As an only child, Ms. St. Martin happily adopted the rowdy, outspoken St. Martin clan of 4 siblings as her own. Mr. St. Martin’s 2 younger sisters became Ms. St. Martin’s best friends during high school and beyond. Mr. St. Martin and the then Ms. Goedel were married on March 15, 1941 in a civil ceremony in Los Angeles. They eventually returned to San Diego where, during World War II, both of them worked for Consolidated Air. After the war, Ms. St. Martin resumed the life of a homemaker, and after 8 years of marriage, she and her husband finally welcomed their first child, Deborah, in March 1949. When Convair (the renamed Consolidated Air and soon-to-become General Dynamics) opened a new plant in Pomona in 1953, the St. Martin family moved there as well. Ms. St. Martin and her husband continued to live in Pomona for the next 55 years. In 1957,

feminist, pacifist, human rights activist
a second daughter, Laura, was born, completing their family. Ms. St. Martin was active in Campfire Girls with her daughter, Deborah, and in Girl Scouts with her daughter, Laura. She continued her relationship with the Girl Scouts for some time after Laura left scouting. “Dozens of women, no doubt, owe their independence in life to Mary’s skills as a leader of girls through their formative years,” said her daughter, Deborah St. Martin. In addition, the entire St. Martin family spent many summer vacations camping and backpacking before their two daughters moved on to their adult lives. Once free of direct responsibility for her children, Ms. St. Martin became involved in political and environmental causes as well as issues involving the equality of women. She was arrested twice in the 70s—first at Diablo Canyon while protesting the construction of the nuclear power plant there, and the second time at then Senator Hayakawa’s Los Angeles office during a sit-in demanding farm workers’ rights. “She loved to tell anyone willing to listen all about those days, and she never failed to mention having met Wavy Gravy at Diablo Canyon,” noted her daughter. For many years, she served on the Pomona Valley Council for Peace along with her husband, and she often met with others at the corner of Indian Hill Boulevard and Arrow Highway to protest various actions by the U.S. government as well as the verdict in the trial of the police officers who beat up Rodney King in 1992. When the Gulf War began, she brought her 18-month-old granddaughter, Gwyneth, with her, providing the child with a sign that read “Another Munchkin for Peace.” Ms. St. Martin was an early member of the National Organization for Women (NOW) in the Pomona Valley, and she served as one of the original facilitators for NOW’s consciousness raising support groups, opening the minds of many women to possibilities which they had previously considered unthinkable. Her last act of protest came when, at the age of 84, she drove herself from the home she shared with her husband in Ganesha Hills down to the corner of McKinley and White Avenues where she set up a lawn chair during afternoon rush hour to protest the U.S. invasion of Iraq. She held a sign which said, “Honk if you hate Bush,” and more cars honked than didn’t. “She loved it,” said her daughter. Ms. St. Martin loved music, and she especially delighted in what she referred to as the “classics”—Sinatra; Seeger; Peter, Paul and Mary; the Beatles; Arlo Guthrie; and Jefferson Airplane, among others. In her 60s, Greek dancing grew into a passion, and she drove to Pasadena every Friday night and to various Greek festivals during summertime to celebrate the joy and laughter of the dance. Her favorite movie was Casablanca, and she often quoted its final line, “This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” Shortly before her husband’s death in late 2008, Ms. St. Martin moved to Claremont where she “reveled in the silent spirits of the sycamores in front of her small apartment, and where, guarded by those great sentinels, she departed her well-lived life in peace,” shared her family. Ms. St. Martin is survived by her daughters, Deborah and Laura; her granddaughter, Gwyneth; and her 22month-old great-grandson, Ivan Louis. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to a charity of your choice, her beneficiaries as she neared the end of her life having been Amnesty International, Greenpeace and the Red Cross.

Daniel L. Moultrie
Daniel Lee Moultrie, a 33-year Claremont and Upland resident, died on Memorial Day, Monday, May 31, 2010, from complications arising from pulmonary fibrosis. After 7 weeks of hospitalization, first at San Antonio Community and then at Kindred Extended Care, he died peacefully surrounded by 17 members of his family. Mr. Moultrie was born in Redding on March 6, 1950. His family immediately moved to Alabama, his parents’ childhood home, and he spent the first 6 years of his life traveling with his family across the South wherever his father found work. The Moultrie family moved back to Monrovia where young Mr. Moultrie attended first grade. They finally settled in Azusa where he attended Lee Elementary and Slauson Junior High. On the first day of 8th grade at Slauson, he met Carly, his future wife of nearly 40 years. Together, they attended Azusa High School and participated in Concert Choir, Aztec Singers and musical theater. After 2 years at Citrus Jr. College, where Mr. Moultrie and his bride-to-be were members of the Citrus Singers, the couple married. Mr. Moultrie then continued his college education at Azusa Pacific University and Cal Poly Pomona. After the birth of their oldest daughter, Melissa, the couple moved to San Juan Capistrano where their youngest daughter, Emily, was born. While working 6 days a week from 3 p.m. to midnight in Huntington Beach, Mr. Moultrie attended California State University, Fullerton as a full-time student. His wife remembers many mornings finding him asleep over his books at the kitchen table. He ultimately received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in business with a core in accounting. On July 4, 1976, the young family visited Mr. Moultrie’s sister, Ruth Bobo, and her family, and experienced their first Claremont 4th of July celebration. They were so enchanted with the event they decided that Claremont was where they wanted to raise their children and immediately bought a Lewis home, not yet built, north of Baseline Road and east of Mills Avenue. At that time, many well-meaning Claremonters warned them it was a mistake to buy that far north because that area would never be considered a part of town.

technology fan, inventor, handy man, jack of many trades
The following 4th of July, the Claremont COURIER carried a photo of Mr. Moultrie consoling 3-year-old Emily: she had won “Biggest Crocodile Tears” in a contest at Memorial Park prior to parade. With his strong interest in digital technology, Mr. Moultrie was among the early owners of an Apple computer, laser disc player, Beta video machine, video camera and cell phone, which required a battery the size of a lunch box. He opened a shop in Claremont that sold VCRs and video cameras before most people understood what purpose they served, and he video-taped weddings at a time when he had to explain to couples what that meant. To the management of Griswold’s Hotel, he presented the idea of putting VCRs in hotel rooms and renting videos to hotel guests, but they didn’t think it would ever catch on. In January 1983, Mr. Moultrie’s shop became the home of the first Carly Moultrie’s Performing Arts Center, now the Moultrie Academy of Music, Voice and Dance. He began managing his daughters commercial and television careers, which became a full time job. The family noted that the 2 girls treasure the time they spent with their father on trips to and from auditions and on the set. A master of many trades, Mr. Moultrie designed and constructed the family’s 7,000-square-foot performing arts center which houses 3 dance studios, 3 private instrumental rooms, 4 offices and a virtually soundproof recording studio. He was a graphic designer, a photographer and an inventor. An avid golfer, he holds patents on 2 golf accessories: a collapsible traveling golf bag and a promotional golf gadget which included a brush, tape measure and a prominent place for a sponsoring business’ logo. Both patents, written by him, were accepted without the need of any revisions, a feat for any patent writer. Mr. Moultrie held licenses in real estate, insurance and home loans. He designed and built furniture and also enjoyed landscaping, doing everything from laying sprinklers to building patio covers and installing spas. According to his wife, throughout their entire marriage, less than $700.00 was spent on repair bills because he “could fix almost anything,” she said. Mr. Moultrie’s family noted that he will be best remembered as a loving and supportive family man. “He was always a devoted and involved father and grandfather, and his caring spilled over to his extended family and friends,” they expressed. Mr. Moultrie is survived by his wife Carly; his daughter, Melissa; his daughter and son-in-law, Emily and Simon; his grandsons, Duncan Stever and Oliver Moultrie Brown; his sisters, Ruth Bobo and Peggy Henson; his nephews, Brian Bobo, Scott McDoniel, Robert Hyvarinen, Ryan McWhorter and Jonathan Gray; his nieces, Liza Bobo Petersen and her husband Michael, Susanne Hyvarinen, Jennifer Burgueno and her husband Jesus, Natalie McWhorter, Jessica Rohde and Madelyn Rohde; his great-nieces and nephews, Christian and Casey Burgueno, Casey Ross and Kristina Ledbetter; his mother-in-law, Alice Rohde; his sisters-in-law, Robin Gray, Loraine McWhorter and Sarah Rohde; and his brothers-in-law, Tom Rohde, Darrell McWhorter, Harley Mack and John Bobo, most of whom reside in Claremont and the surrounding communities. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 26, 2010 in the Seeley Mudd Theater at the Claremont School of Theology where many of the first Moultrie family productions were held. The theater is located on the north side of Foothill Boulevard directly across from Wolfe’s Market. The family would like to express their great appreciation to Jack Coogan for making the use of the theater possible.

Carlotta Welles
Carlotta Welles, who retired to Claremont after a longtime residency in her native Altadena/Pasadena area, died at her Mt. San Antonio Gardens home on May 23, 2010 under VNA/ Hospice Care. She was 92. A Claremont resident for the last 15 years, Ms. Welles first resided in Claremont during an earlier chapter of life, graduating from Scripps College and continuing to share activities with some of her college contemporaries, all now in their 90s, for many years. For 20 years, Ms. Welles lived in Linda Vista, appreciating her view of the Rose Bowl. Ms. Welles’ professional life was

occupational therapist, Scripps alumna
spent as a practitioner, teacher, organizer/leader, faculty member and speaker in the field of occupational therapy (OT). She served as both a hospital therapy program director at L.A. County General Hospital in the ‘50s and a therapy administrative expert since during World War II. She had been appointed by the military to organize and direct the OT program at the sizable 1500-bed Birmingham Army Receiving Hospital in LA. Later, she served as western regional oversight director of the OT programs in 11 west coast army hospitals. After the war, Ms. Welles worked at Los Angeles City College, organizing and heading the first junior college level program in southern California to prepare OT assistants. With the complexity of healthcare and staffing, she became increasingly focused on personnel practice patterns and areas for therapy program expansion and development. Ms. Welles also continued her presence in scholarship development and the ever-increasing opportunities for expanding health care roles in occupational therapy. Ms. Welles remained active in various roles as a helper in resident life in her retirement community, Mt. San Antonio Gardens, until her retirement approximately 5 years ago when she grew more physically and mentally limited with Alzheimer’s disease. Ms. Welles is survived by a sister, Lucy Harrell of Haines, Arkansas; a niece, Barbara Warner, in Portland, Oregon; and by Florence S. Cromwell, her OT colleague and housemate for 60 years, residing now at Mt. San Antonio Gardens. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 26, 2010 in Kingman Chapel at the Claremont United Church of Christ, Congregational. The service will be followed by a reception in an adjacent room.
