olitically it’s not a good time to be an incumbent. Which is exactly why we should help them. I think it’s time we start a bipartisan grass roots campaign and support the people who are making some hard choices through some very grueling years in American history.

But what do we do when elected officials stand up and make these tough choices? We vote them out of office. The problem is people don’t like change. We didn’t like bailing out greedy bankers. Healthcare reform was passed, the war in Iraq has moved to Afghanistan. Voters are understandably nervous about all the zeros adding up in the budget deficit. But these were problems that had to be addressed. Sure it’s easy now to point fingers. But were we really going to let all these banks fail? Do we give up on the war on terrorism? Most states are in a financial mess because of the recession. California for example has to cut the budget somewhere. There are no concrete easy solutions. Any movement to balance budgets will cause pain. Has anyone accused our governor of shying away from the state’s financial mess? So whichever party you favor, it’s time to vote incumbent. If you’re a Democrat, you probably agree with the direction most things are going. Our country has many problems, but think about where we were before January 2008. Even with high unemployment, there are many people who think things are turning around. Can you imagine where we would be if Bush was still in office? If you vote Republican, no one from your party supported health care reform anyway, so why be mad at them? Most conservatives agree some form of a bank bailout needed to happen, the numbers are scary, but do you think the stock market would have recovered from the 6000s if nothing were done? And yes, even some party faithful have voted for the House and Senate versions of the financial regulatory bills to overhaul Wallstreet. That’s a good thing. On the other hand, by saying “no” to most new legislation over the past 2 years, the party has held the line on many conservative ideals. Why punish them for being outnumbered?

So let’s move forward and vote incumbent. Since no great idea or cause can exist without a website, I went online and did some URL searching. Much to my surprise, voteincumbent.com was not taken! Actually voteincumbent.net, .org, .us, .biz and any other dot were also available. I guess this campaign will need a little work. But I’m committed (many have said I should be), so I even registered voteincumbent.com. Don’t worry the fee didn’t cost much. It’s just starting the that website will require some work. All we really need to get started is a list of incumbents who you feel have done a good job guiding us. Politicians who have simply stepped up. It doesn’t matter what party, what location, or job small or large. All I need is an email from you that includes this information: Name and position of the incumbent. The candidate they are running against in November. Why this person deserves your support in 200 words or less. A photo or link(s) with more information. Include your name, city and phone number. Phone number will not be published. Send to pweinberger@claremont-courier.com. Once (if) I actually get responses, I’ll list them on the new state-of-the-art voteincumbent.com website that I created. I need a minimum of 10 incumbents to get started. To be honest, I’m quite curious to see what happens. I’m willing to do some work if people respond. If not, I’ll put this in my file of bad ideas. And of course you all know neither the Claremont COURIER nor myself endorse any of the incumbents listed. It’s just time to stop the finger pointing and give credit to the people actually are trying to do something in these difficult times.

Study would focus on health risk prevention for Claremont students

C

laremont Graduate University is considering conducting a community health study using Claremont school children as test subjects.
The aim of the study would be to identify health risks in area youths and develop an intervention plan that could lower risk factors, said C. Anderson Johnson, Dean and Professor of CGU’s School of Community and Global Health. Dr. Anderson was speaking Tuesday night at the joint meeting between the Claremont City Council and the school district’s Board of Education. The study would involve school-based prevention research for a program aimed at reducing the risk factors for chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease. “What’s driving [chronic diseases] is tobacco consumption, alcohol abuse, substance abuse, which our generation experienced as well just like the current generation does,” Dr. Johnson said. “On top of that now is the epidemic of obesity in our children that our generation didn’t experience.” He also mentioned that a 2008 study found that about 22 percent of Claremont 11th graders reported binge drinking, meaning 5 or more alcoholic beverages, within the last month. Dr. Anderson said he’s taken part in a similar study with over 100 school districts including the Los Angeles Unified School District that helped reduce the onset of alcohol, tobacco and drug use by adolescents. City council and board of education members were open to the idea of the health study. A more concrete proposal will be presented at a future Board of Education meeting. In the only vote taken Tuesday night, the council and board both agreed to extend the Joint Facilities Use Agreement between the city and the school district. The agreement allows for shared use of city and school property, such as classroom space and sports fields, without fees incurred by either agency. Similar agreements have been in place since 1953 but expired in 2003, said Claremont Human Services Director Mercy Santoro. “The purpose of the agreement is to give students and

residents access to quality recreation space at lower cost or even no cost to the end user,” Ms. Santoro said. Also at the meeting, Claremont city manager Jeff Parker discussed a fundraising project pitched by Roger Hogan, owner of Claremont Toyota. According to the city manager, Mr. Hogan is willing to donate a Toyota Prius as a raffle prize with funds going to the Claremont Education Foundation. The car would be featured in the 4th of July parade and tickets would be sold at city and school events throughout the end of the year, Mr. Parker said. “If you sold about 3000 tickets for $50 each, you’d raise a pretty good chunk of change for the foundation,”

Mr. Parker said. The final discussion item was a report related to the city’s transportation programs. The Get About and Diala-Ride programs have become so popular in recent years that the city may need to trim services in the future due to limited funding, Mr. Parker said. Over the next year, riders will need to register so that the city can collect data on who is using the services. The information will be used in the future if the city needs to consider program cuts, Mr. Parker said. Since Dial-a -Ride is popular with students, the city wanted to share the information with the school district.

itzer junior Adam Mandel-Senft uses a wheelchair to transport some of his possessions along Claremont Boulevard on Friday in Claremont. Mr. MandelSenft was moving out of the dormitories and into a friend’s home until his parents can come and get him later this month. With nearly 6000 students and a combined faculty and staff of over 3300 at the 5Cs, the city’s population dropped significantly last week. As a result, residents may find driving along Sixth Street and College Avenue a less daunting task the next few months. Take note of the quiet summer, studies will resume at the end of August.

police blotter
Friday, May 14 A man was arrested after a witness saw him jumping a fence into a resident’s backyard. At 4:27 p.m., police responded to the area and located the man in a parking lot on the 400 block of South Indian Hill Boulevard. Monte Larsen-Davis, 44, of Claremont was arrested for an outstanding warrant related to narcotics. It is unclear what he was doing in the backyard. *** A man was arrested for trying to cash a fake check at Wells Fargo Bank in the Village. Around 5:46 p.m., police responded to a call about a man asking to cash a business check valued at $280,000. The fraudulent check was from a business out of New York that had been closed. Jeremy Delacruz, 73, of Claremont was arrested for fraud and attempted burglary. Sunday, May 16 A dispute between neighbors resulted in a private person’s arrest for trespassing. At 4:30 p.m., police were called to the 1600 block of Mural Drive to diffuse the spat between the neighbors. One resident was allegedly complaining because his neighbor parked her car on the street in front of his home. The complaining resident, 19-year-old Dusten Anderson, was asked to leave the car owner’s property but refused, Claremont Police Detective Joe Maddox said. Mr. Anderson was issued a citation by police because of the private person’s arrest. There is an ongoing dispute between the neighbors over parking in front of each other’s homes, Detective Maddox said.

Police think same party may be responsible for multiple home burglaries
Police are investigating a series of residential burglaries earlier this week in northern Claremont that could be related. On Monday, a home in the 100 block of Smith Drive was burglarized. Sometime between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m., the thief entered the residence by forcing open a locked French door on the north side of home. The place was ransacked and the burglar fled undetected. A laptop, a black canvas bag, a black leather brief case, checks and currency were stolen with an estimated value of $635. The following day, 2 more homes were broken into. Between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., a burglar entered a home in the 3300 block of Padua Avenue and stole a laptop, a camera and a camcorder. Later that day between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., a home on the 900 block of Pomona Court was entered. The burglar used a screw driver to pry open a screen window, entered the home and ransacked the house. A $300 digital camera was stolen. Police found no evidence left behind and have no witnesses. The final burglary occurred Wednesday between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. from a home in the 2300 block of North Mills Avenue. A flat-screen television, a camera and jewelry were stolen. Claremont Police Lieutenant Jon Traber said that police are still reviewing forensic evidence left at some of the crime scenes. Police are not ruling out that the burglaries were committed by the same party. “Based on the close times of occurrences and property taken that’s certainly a possibility but we’re still investigating the cases,” Lt. Traber said. He urged the public to be cautious and keep an eye on their neighborhoods to help prevent similar crimes. “Report suspicious activity in your neighborhood to police,” Lt. Traber said. “If it appears someone doesn’t belong there, then there could be a reason for that. [Police] certainly would be interested to hear about it.”

Foothill Country Day will change leadership in 2011

T

he search for Foothill Country Day School’s new headmaster has ended. Starting on July 1, 2011, Norfolk Academy Lower School headmaster Michael Silva will begin his first day as the school’s 5th headmaster after the current interim headmaster term of Clint Taylor expires.

The Foothill Country Day School Board of Trustees sent out notices to the school community on May 15th to confirm its selection. “I was elated!” Mr. Silva said. “There are a few K-8 schools that could be described as ‘jewels,’ and Foothill

Country Day is one of the them. The qualities that have been developed over the decades—a strong mission, a talented, experienced and forward-thinking faculty, as well as a supportive and generous parent body, are all in place at FCDS.” The need for a new school headmaster came after former headmaster Mark Lauria resigned from the position in June 2009 to become the executive director of the New York State Association of Independent Schools. Dr. Lauria had served as Foothill Country Day headmaster for 13 years. As a result of Dr. Lauria’s decision, the board of trustees announced Mr. Taylor as the interim headmaster last spring. Mr. Taylor will serve in his position through June 30, 2011 in order to allow Mr. Silva to fulfill his contractual obligations with Norfolk Academy.

According to FCDS board chairman John Holliday, the decision to appoint Mr. Silva was unanimous. “In his career he has been a courageous leader whose decisions have been marked by clarity, consistency, and a clear sense of morals and ethics,” Mr. Holliday said in a letter to the school community. “Mr. Silva will lead our school forward in line with our traditions, history and mission. It was clear to the members of the Search Committee that Mr. Silva is an experienced educator with curiosity and passion for academic excellence.” A California native, Mr. Silva has been an educator for 19 years. He has served in his current position as Norfolk Academy Lower School director since 2007. Prior to serving at Norfolk Academy, he was the Campbell Hall Lower School director in North Hollywood. Along with his administrative experience, Mr. Silva taught all subjects in grades 3 through 6 and has coached athletics. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature from UC Berkeley and a Master’s degree in Special Education from Cal State Northridge. With a career based in independent schools, Mr. Silva was already acquainted with Foothill Country Day School. His favorable impression of the school grew as he went through the interview process. “I’ve been familiar with Foothill’s reputation for character development and strong academics for a number of years,” he said. “I was impressed by how well the members of the school community understood the school’s mission and how earnest they were in finding someone worthy of the Foothill faculty and students.” Mr. Silva hopes his time at Foothill Country Day School will help build on what he views is a strong academic institution. “I look forward to working with the faculty and trustees to maintain its position as the premier K-8 independent school in the region,” the new FCDS headmaster said. “We’ll accomplish this by inviting more families into our selective admissions process, by attracting and retaining the best faculty for our school and providing outstanding facilities and resources, by maintaining our position that the pursuit of academic excellence is an act of character, and by continuing to hold the moral development of children above all else.”

Claremonter selected to society for academics

P

omona Catholic High School sophomore Mary Jane Carr has joined thousands of high school students over the past 8 years that have been recognized by The National Society of High School Scholars for strong academic achievement.
The organization informed Mary Jane of her selection last month and the 16-year-old Claremont resident was enthusiastic about becoming one of its members. “I was just as excited as my mom was and she was pretty excited,” Mary Jane said. In order to qualify for membership in The National Society of High School Scholars, candidates must possess at least a 3.5 grade point average (GPA). Mary Jane currently possesses a GPA of 4.125. The organization also works with high schools around the country to help identify potential members. Claes Nobel founded The National Society of High School Scholars in 2002. The Atlanta-based organization includes more than 300,000 members in over 120 countries. Membership in the organization provides students with news updates, information for upcoming member events and exclusive scholarships totaling as much as $5000. “On behalf of NSHSS, I am honored to recognize the hard work, sacrifice, and commitment that Mary J. Carr has demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence,” Mr. Nobel said. “Mary J. Carr is now a member of a unique community of scholars— a community that represents our very best hope for the future.” While Mary Jane excels academically, the classroom isn’t the only place the sophomore is making a difference. She is also a member of the National Honor Society (NHS), the California Scholarship Federation (CSF), was captain of the junior varsity Pomona

Catholic girls volleyball team last fall and currently participates in Club West Volleyball in La Verne. Mary Jane has recently been selected as the ASB Junior Class Secretary/Treasurer, a member of the Damien High School varsity cheerleading squad and hopes to become a campus minister and ambassador. Yet Mary Jane’s efforts extend beyond the 6-hour school day. She is a tutor for Pomona Catholic’s “PC Buddies” after school program with children from the community and has volunteered at Our Lady of the Assumption Church in Claremont. “Mary Jane is a tremendous example of a Pomona Catholic student,” said Pomona Catholic principal Samuel Torres. “She exemplifies the values of the Catholic education. Mary Jane is the first student that I know of that has been selected by The National Society of High School Scholars and after speaking to the administration, she’s the only one that has been selected for at least the last 10 years.” With her mother and grandmother having attended Pomona Catholic, Mary Jane is a 3rd generation student at the 112-year-old school. Having spent kindergarten through 8th grade at Western Christian School in Claremont, the Claremonter made the decision to attend the all-girls school for her high school tenure. “When I visited the campus, everybody was really

welcoming and it made me want to come here,” she said. “It’s about the same size that I was used to at Western Christian. I like the smallness of Pomona Catholic, it keeps the school’s focus on what the needs of their students are. We get a lot of one-on-one interaction with teachers that you can’t receive at a public school.” Mary Jane plans to attend college following graduation and aspires to earn both a Bachelors and Masters Degree, along with a teaching credential to teach first graders. Her current college considerations are Pomona College, University of La Verne, UC San Diego, Cal Baptist University, Harvard University and Stanford University. Along with her career goals, Mary Jane wants also promote Pomona Catholic to others to help increase enrollment. She’s even considering returning to the private high school as a first grade teacher in the future. “I just focus and just put my mind to it and I’ll get it done,” she said when asked about how she balances all of her responsibilities. “When I graduate, I want to also help Pomona Catholic have more enrollment and maybe one day, I’ll even come back and teach.”

The lure of L.A. (in two parts)
by Jan Wheatcroft

L.

A. beckoned in the form of good friends Patty and Genaro who have a connoisseur’s finger on places to investigate and things in which to participate. Heading their siren’s call I zipped into L.A. for the weekend. And what a full and glorious weekend it was.
Genaro was armed with a long list of possible things to do, all imaginative and quite new to me. After a quick snack we drove off towards Hollywood stopping at a nifty coffee house on Washington Blvd. in Culver City called the Conservatory for Coffee, Tea and Cocoa. An antique-looking coffee roaster stood off to one side where they roasted all of their own coffee beans. They serve a mean mocha which was simply de-licious. Then we were off to The Museum of Death on Hollywood Boulevard which has been open at this location for 2 years although they have been collecting for 13 years in San Diego. The proprietors, J.D. Healy and Cathie Shultz, a husband and wife team, believe such a museum makes people realize life is short so live it up. I’m not so sure that this museum lives up to that thesis. One enters the exhibits through a jail door into such rooms as the Suicide Hall, the Cannibal Nitch, the Theater of Death, the Specimen room and the room of Serial Archives as well as little alcoves of animal skulls, photographs, mass murders, taxidermy exhibits, and war photos. J.D. waxed enthusiastically about what he had on display explaining that “Americans are so afraid of the unknown that it can be helpful to confront these feelings.” This museum is certainly about confrontation. Our self-guided tour began in the more “scientific” area devoted to funeral homes and videos on embalming, tools of the embalming trade and a wall of match books covers from funeral homes and memorial chapels. Many serious books on death and dying are on display, such as works by Mitford and Kubler-Ross, as well as caskets. Then we moved on to bone exhibits, skulls, gross photos of murders with accompanying information as well as one of the bunks from the Heaven’s Gate Cult Suicide. I could go on but by this time I was feeling drained (no pun intended) at all that had been collected. Everything bordered on the sensational without touching on anything spiritual or what lies beyond or what is wrong with all this murder and terror. In the end talking to the couple proved to be the

most interesting aspect of all. J.D. seems to have a fixation on inmates of death row and is eager to view an execution. They were happy to show us their two-headed Siamese tortoise called Eng and Chang. Even though the museum focuses on all aspects of death, in my view, it ends up being a museum of killing. I like the idea of going out and finding what things exist in Los Angeles. Even though I was born and raised here I found that it was like visiting a foreign city and there is so much to explore. After a divine meal at Hal’s on Abbott Kinney in Venice we had a delightful theater experience. We went to the the American Cinematheque on Montana in Santa Monica which shows old and classic films and often has open chats with some of the people involved in the making of the films. On this evening we saw M.A.S.H. which was a film I had loved so many years ago. The best part was that I enjoyed it just as much as I had when it first came out. It really stood the test of time and I sank into the total pleasure of watching superb acting, directing; just the whole experience. Afterwards two of the actors of the film, Elliot Gould and Sally Kellerman, came up on stage and told of their experiences working together and under the direction of Robert Altman. I can say that it was a rich and full day with a wide range of experiences, tastes and visual stimulation. It makes one realize that our own “big city” offers us much and all we have to do is to brave the freeways and explore as if we were in a foreign country. And this was just day one of a two day safari. The second installment will follow in my next column.

I can’t believe it! My ex-wife and mother-in-law! My crazy Uncle Charlie! Tipsy Aunt Emma! The dull, gossipy, borrowing neighbors, deadbeat cousins, ex-boss and all!! I thought they would be down below!

Redevelopment in Claremont

Dear Editor: In the May 15, 2010 issue, the headline reads “Claremont feels the sting of giving money to the state.” The money that Claremont is returning to the state is property tax money that is to be used for eliminating blight and for building affordable housing. As I stated previously, there is no “blight” in the city of Claremont. Claremont was never entitled to the money. The money is not, as Mr. Parker said, for attracting new businesses and rehabilitating some of the city’s shopping centers, in particular the one at the corner of Arrow Highway and Indian Hill where I buy Subway sandwiches. Because Claremont was not lawfully entitled to the money in the first place, it should be thankful that it has funds to continue with the affordable housing project and service the considerable mount in Tax Allocation Bonds that it issued without voter approval.

and 5 ¼ ounces and have a circumference of between 9 and 9 ¼ inches, they differ in one huge respect, resulting in a somewhat looser cover. By late in the work day, much of the finger-power provided by the mostly Costa Rican hands that sew baseball’s two cowhide covers together, have lost at least some of their strength. That’s why you’ll often see a pitcher, with runners on base, ask the plate umpire for a new ball. What the pitcher is hoping to find is a ball with a cover that can be twisted just enough to make it drop an extra two or three inches. Pitchers also prefer balls whose stitches they can readily feel with their fingers. The turbulence that kind of ball can generate when thrown by someone like Sandy Koufax, with the count three and two, is what makes a pitcher’s fastball and breaking ball so hard to hit. Reportedly, over a 162-game season, the game’s 30 major league teams as a unit use approximately 225,000 baseballs.

misleading campaign to protect a private monopoly.

Baseballs and Rosaries

Dear Editor: Most major league fans know as much about the commercial ingredients that go into the manufacture of a baseball as the rookie kitchen boy knows about crepe suzettes. The process begins with a cork center surrounded by 2 rubber coverings. Approximately 7 feet of cotton and wool yarn are tightly wrapped around the center. Hollywood movie-makers, who often sacrifice accuracy to create what they hope will be an unforgettable line, announced in the 1988 film Bull Durham that a baseball has the same number of stitches (108) as a rosary. Even though the baseball figure is correct, the number of beads in a rosary is always greater. While all baseballs are supposed to be the same size, the fact is no two are exactly alike. Even though every major league baseball must weigh between 5

No on Proposition 16

Dear Editor: The League of Women Voters of the Claremont Area asks you to vote “no” on Proposition 16. Proposition 16 is an unnecessary measure that would do nothing to protect the public interest. Instead, it is designed solely to protect the business interests of a privately-owned monopoly. Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) is the sole provider of gas and electricity service to much of northern and central California. The intent of this measure is to keep things that way, by making it nearly impossible for local residents to make any other choice for electric service. PG&E, the only sponsor of this meas-

ure, spent millions just to place it on the ballot. They have made it clear that they will spend whatever it takes to scare voters into thinking the measure is for the protection of the public, rather than their own profits. Under current law, local communities can agree to be annexed to a neighboring public electric utility district, or to buy electricity directly from a local nonprofit organization that can buy “green” power at wholesale rates and sell it to communities at a more affordable cost. Proposition 16’s intent is to make that choice almost impossible by requiring a two-thirds supermajority vote to make such changes. PG&E is using its shareholders’ money—dollars collected from its ratepayers—to spend millions of dollars on a ballot campaign designed to fool voters into supporting a measure that would make it nearly impossible for those voters to make decisions in their own best interests. Local governments cannot spend taxpayer funds for ballot campaigns. That means local residents who want to buy green power at wholesale rates will have to raise the money for their own campaign to fight PG&E’s deep-pocket opposition. Proposition 16 is a striking example of a special interest using the initiative process to promote its private wellbeing. If this measure goes into effect, PG&E will only have to make a small minority of voters believe that getting electric power from any source than PG&E will cost them money in the form of higher taxes and public debt. But local government already must go to the voters to either raise taxes or incur bonded indebtedness. Don’t be fooled by this cynical and

START Treaty

Dear Editor: Soon, the United States Senate will take up the issue of whether it will consent to the START Treaty that has recently been negotiated between the United States and Russia. The treaty is important for several reasons. It extends the START Treaty that was ready to expire, it reduces the nuclear arsenals of both countries and it gives a new positive impetus to the relationship between the United States and Russia. One would think that peace would be one issue where partisanship would stop but that does not appear to be the case. I get the impression that, even if world peace broke out, President Obama’s opponents would find something wrong with peace. It is disheartening to think that no matter what the president does, the Republican naysayers would impede the progress that is being made towards reducing the threat of nuclear war with our former adversary. Russia’s cooperation and help fighting world terrorism is essential. Their help is needed to secure potential loose nukes. We need their vote for sanctions against Iran. In spite of assurances that our nuclear stockpile of over 5000 warheads will be modernized, partisanship is on the rise once again. What is at stake is far more important than mere or imagined political gain. We need the senate to do their job and advise and give their consent to the new treaty.

Illegal immigration in the United States
by Ted Wootton

I

feel compelled to respond to the many tirades against illegal aliens: Those guys standing outside Home Depot at 5 a.m. waiting for a job are just doing what most of us would be doing under their circumstances; trying to improve the lot of themselves and their families.

view point
A mechanism, the E-Verify system, is in place to do this. 2. What about the 10 million or so illegals presently in the U.S.? Every quarter the employers send in payments to their accounts. Social Security knows very well that these payments are not valid. They are getting two (or more) payments to the same number from people with different names in different places. Social Security even has an account to keep track of these invalid payments. Why not have SS issue a list of these invalid payments to ICE and/or Border Patrol and have agents go to the employers and check the identities of the employees making the payments? That would certainly be easier and cheaper than chasing people along the border and building fences. To do this at least two changes would have to be made: (1) it is now illegal for Social Security to report these incorrect payments, and (2) quarterly payments by employers do not carry the names of the employers for whom the payments are made, only at the end of the year are the names included. 3. We should realize that some number of low-income immigrant workers have a positive effect on our economy. For example, some agricultural products could not be produced in the U.S. without a large number of lowwage workers (to harvest strawberries, citrus, table grapes, some produce crops, for example). We should establish a temporary immigrant worker

Blaming them for the illegal immigration problems is similar to blaming an ordinary foot soldier for the war. This is not their problem to solve, it is our problem and we must solve it! The irony is that this problem could easily be solved, as I see it: According to the studies I have seen, about 98 percent of illegal aliens come here for jobs. That is intuitively obvious to most of us, isn’t it? If so, then we should be working on the problem of illegals getting jobs and most of the problem is solved, right? Here is how the problem could be solved: 1. For most people in the U.S. who get a job, they have to submit a Social Security card to their employer who records the information so they can make quarterly payments. Most employers have no way to determine if the cards are valid or not. But Social Security knows if a card is valid or not. Why not require the employer to contact SS by phone, or Internet and input the name, number, and date of birth of the card? They then get a reply, essentially, “Valid for employment,” or “Not valid for employment,” along with a validation number to keep with the file. The credit card companies go through a similar process millions of times a day; this is not a burdensome task for employers or the Social Security Admin.

program and issue temporary worker visas. These workers could come in to work for a fixed period (say 2 to 3 years), we would be able to keep track of them, treat them like the honest workers most of them are, and kick out the trouble makers. At the end of their visa period, the ones with good records would be eligible to reapply. This program would actually reduce the number of dependents the workers would bring to this country; they would be able to travel freely back to their homes for vacations, off season periods, etc. without fear of being stopped by Border Patrol. If the solution to the problem is so easy, why don’t we do it? Consider for whom the illegal immigration problem is a “problem:” Agriculture? Construction? The hospitality industry (fast food, hotels, etc.)? There are many politically connected players in the economy for whom the illegal immigration “problem” is not a problem but a “solution” to their labor problems. The problems attributed to illegal immigration are not their problems. There is a small ray of hope...Janet Napolitano, former Governor of Arizona, implemented a version of #1, above, in Arizona with some success, depending on who you ask. She is now head of Homeland Security. Maybe she will be open to actually solving the illegal immigration problem rather than just blaming the lowly “foot solder” in this war. I welcome your feedback on these ideas. Ted Wootton is a Claremont resident.

Meg Whitman in Reagan’s cloak
by Opanyi K. Nasiali

[Editor’s note: The following was submitted as an “open letter to Meg Whitman—Republican candidate for Governor of California.” —KD] Dear Ms. Whitman: In addition to your myriad TV commercials, I have of late been receiving a barrage of your campaign mailers. It must be “nice” to have your kind of personal wealth to squander sending out message after message to tell me what you think I want to hear. I am sorry to inform you that you are not convincing me to believe you will be a governor “who is Tough as Nails” to stop illegal immigration. Why don’t I believe you on this and other issues? The answers are in your own campaign materials. In the mailer, “It’s Meg Whitman vs. Steve Poizner,” you state that you “oppose amnesty” for illegal aliens. In the same mailer you also state that you “supported Bush (without indicating which of the Bushes you supported) and Reagan.” I believe you are trying to cleanse yourself by invoking Reagan and hiding in his cloak to convince me to accept your tough talk. If indeed you supported Reagan—and either of the Bushes—let me inform you that it was President Reagan (with Bush 1 as his VP) who has so far granted a blanket amnesty to illegal aliens. And let me also remind you

view point
that it was President Bush 2 who considered amnesty as part of his attempt to deal with the illegal immigration problem. So I am puzzled by your rhetoric. How can you oppose amnesty and support the president who has granted it? Maybe you do not see a discrepancy in your pronouncements on this issue, but it is clear to me you cannot have it both ways: i.e oppose amnesty for illegal aliens and support the president whose policy actually granted amnesty. On the question of the size of government you state that you will “cut Sacramento spending [and] reduce the Sacramento bureaucracy by 40,000 bureaucrats.” It sounds good, but I say again, you supported a president whose policies bloated the federal government—a great model indeed! As to the issue of abortion, you state that you “oppose federal funding of abortion [and] partial birth abortion”—both of which are existing law. You are not telling me anything new. Why stop there? You would be telling me something new if you declared that you will

fight to repeal Roe vs Wade! That might convince me you are the tough conservative you are pretending to be. Then under the tab, “Democratic Relations,” you state that you “oppose Boxer and Pelosi.” What is that supposed to tell me? It might be more informative if you told me what about them you are opposed so that I can have a better understanding of your own position(s) on specific issues. How do you—if elected—intend to work with the other Democrats in state government? Ms. Whitman, do not get me wrong. I really respect your business acumen, and I want to believe you could use it to improve state governance. Unfortunately, I have heard similar pronouncements before from one Arnold Schwarzenegger who came in from outside government stating that he was going to “blow up the boxes” in referring to state bureaucracy. After seven years in office, the “boxes” are still in place and now the state government is broke. Therefore, try a new tactic with me—one that is more realistic and believable. I am one voter who is tired of being told what the candidates for public office think I want to hear.

Class size increases and RIFs remain hot issues

teachers and most importantly the quality of education we could provide for our children,” said Sycamore teacher Talia Bowman. “Increasing class size and laying off teachers is not the solution to this very real budget problem. I am a recipient of a RIF letter myself. I am uncertain whether or not I will have a job in Clare-

mont next year. I am filled with emotional turmoil as I rise each day to fulfill the expectation of a job I love.” Ten speakers addressed the board on Thursday with ideas ranging from moving to a 4-day school week and going green to saving money by using district reserves to avoid teacher layoffs. The teachers were split over a furlough day option that will call for all district employees to take 6 furlough days next year. CUSD and the Claremont Faculty Association (CFA) are currently at an impasse with negotiations scheduled to resume through a mediator starting on June 4th. According to CUSD SuperinCUSD NEWS continues on the next page

Within the 30-minute public comment session, current teachers, retired teachers and parents shared their opinions with the board about how the district should proceed in regards to retaining teachers and ensuring class sizes don’t increase. “I believe the RIFs are unnecessary and negatively affect our district, our

tendent Terry Nichols, the district has sought to reach an agreement with CFA in regard to furlough days but the union has not been responsive to the offer. The superintendent also reiterated his guarantee of all teachers being able to keep their jobs if a decision is reached to take 6 furlough days in the 2010-11 school year. “Based upon our calculations and budgetary assumptions, if each CUSD employee were to take 6 furlough days next year, that would produce a savings sufficient to ensure no person in the Claremont family would lose their job,” Superintendent Nichols said. “We’d be able to protect our staff and preserve our current class sizes. If CFA will agree with other district employees, that each of its members will take 6 furlough days next year, layoffs will be avoided, no district employees would lose their jobs and class sizes will be maintained.” CFA President Suzanne Miller took exception to the superintendent’s words, citing that the CUSD bargaining team has never presented the union with a furlough day option that guaranteed all jobs would be retained. “With all due respect Dr. Nichols, your repeated rhetoric guaranteeing jobs in exchange for furloughs has gotten tiresome,” Ms. Miller said as teachers and students laid 39 red roses on the ground to symbolize the teachers whose jobs are in jeopardy. “This has never, ever been brought to the bargaining table. The district negotiating team has never entertained the idea that furlough days would be exchanged for anything.” Ms. Miller also questioned the ability of CFA to trust the district when several obstacles prevent the union from doing so. “Why would we trust an administration who RIFs one-third of its certificated staff?” she asked. “Why would we trust

bleacher seating at Claremont High School’s stadium and $260,000 for water utilities related to landscaping and lighting. Other costs are factored into the total as well. CUSD initiated the process to establish a Recreation Assessment District (RAD) to levy and collect assessments on assessable lots and parcels of land within district boundaries in March 1993. Since then, RAD has been the means the district has used to perform landscaping upgrades, replace playground equipment, enhance irrigation systems and parking lots and install bleachers and artificial turf on the Claremont High School football field. Both Claremont residents and CUSD help fund RAD. A public hearing on the proposed RAD plan will be held at the June 3rd board meeting at 7 p.m.
Claremont resident Ed Sanders suggests that CUSD consider wind turbines to offset energy costs during the public comment session on Thursday during the Board of Education Meeting.

an administration who targets a beloved nurse with baseless accusations? Why would we trust an administration who hires a high priced attorney who shows no respect for our team to sit at the negotiations table?” Though parents in attendance were also split over teachers taking furlough days next year, they were in agreement regarding the need for the district and CFA to be able to work out their differences going into the next academic year. “This is a time when our community needs to come together and put all of our resources together to solve this problem,” said Sycamore parent Amy Fass. “Widespread anger at either the district or the teachers is going to poison the well for us and I’m afraid that it’s really going to endanger our ability to do fundraising in this community. So I fear this impasse

is going to sacrifice the best interest of our students and some of our best and brightest teachers. I urge both sides to come together now—before June 4th— and come to an agreement to help solve this problem.” Board moves forward with recreational funding he board approved a resolution that declares its intention for approximately $1,725,313 to be spent on installation, maintenance and service of the district’s recreational facilities for the 2010-11 fiscal year.

District gets creative to balance budget y a unanimous vote, the board has passed a resolution to allow the district to implement temporary interfund cash borrowing to help make up for the $2.5 billion deferment in K-12 apportionments by the state government this coming July. According to a report by CUSD Assistant Superintendent of Business Services Lisa Shoemaker, the district is currently in the red when factoring in its present budget and assumptions. “Based on ongoing costs of our operating budget and the assumptions that have been provided to us by Sacramento and the county office, the district’s doesn’t anticipate that it will be able to positively certify its budget for that 3-year period,” Ms. Shoemaker explained. “The reason for that is because we are deficit

spending at a rate that is depleting the district’s balances faster than the rate the economy is expected to recover.” Under interfund cash borrowing, the district can use money from other funds toward the general fund as a short-term loan decision. This process is usually undertaken to handle cash flow issues. According to the current timetable, 80

percent of July’s apportionments have been deferred to December and 100 percent of August’s apportionments have been deferred to October. The deferments are the result of the ongoing state budget crisis. CUSD applies for grant to help CTE program The CUSD administration and Career Technical Education (CTE) teachers will work together to submit an application

for a Perkins Grant that could bring $30,036 of funding to the district’s CTE programs. If the application is approved, the district will allocate $5280 into 5 different categories—Business & Administrative Services, Photography, Video Production, Stage Technology and Engineering & Design. In order for an application to be approved, the applicant must have a 5-year plan in place for its CTE program. The

board approved a 5-year plan in October 2008. Funding for CTE programs has increased as a result of a 2006 reauthorized Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act. The act seeks to develop more full the academic, vocational and technical skills of secondary and postsecondary students enrolled in CTE programs.

CHS volleyball endures bittersweet end to season

W

hile the Claremont High School boys volleyball team spent the entire season creating strong momentum that carried the team into the CIF Southern Section Division II Boys Volleyball semifinals, the same momentum was taken away in an instant on Tuesday night.

cif roundup
Leading 2 games to one with a chance to put away top-seeded Westlake in front of its enthusiastic home crowd, CHS squandered its greatest opportunity to clinch the match by losing to the Warriors in the 4th frame, 33-31. One game later, Westlake finished off the Wolfpack to claim the match, 15-11. “At one time we were just a swing away from going to the finals,” said CHS coach Bernie Wendling. “It was a very good match.” It was CHS who took the advantage early by winning the first game, 25-16. After Westlake tied the match in the next game (25-20), the Wolfpack once again positioned itself closer to victory by successfully taking the 3rd game, 25-19. But Westlake’s win in the 4th game proved to be the momentum shift in the closely-contestant match as the rejuvenated Warriors broke a 5-5 tie in the 5th game and never looked back. Geoff Powell led Claremont with 29 kills while teammate Andrew Zetterberg contributed 13 kills and Patrick Stalwick recorded 10. Claremont proved to be the toughest test yet for Westlake in the postseason, as the Warriors had only allowed an average of 15.5 points per game from their opponents in playoffs. En route to Tuesday’s match, the Wolfpack had won its 5th consecutive Pacific League title and had defeated Adolfo Camarillo (25-20, 25-14, 25-16), Village Christian (25-22, 25-17, 24-26, 25-22) and Valencia (25-22, 23-25, 25-14, 2522). The semifinal round is the furthest that Claremont has advanced in the history of its boys volleyball program. “The guys were just incredible [all season] and I’m proud of them,” Coach Wendling said. Masters Meet marks the end of swim season Claremont swimmers Sam Jardine, Tana Wilson, Joy Gao, Tara Bletcher Cameron Hagen and Susannah Hine were able to compete against the best high school swimmers from all divisions in the CIF’s southern region on Tuesday. Jardine had the best performances of the day for CHS as the junior finished 6th out of 24 swimmers in the 500-yard freestyle race (4:35.64) and placed 7th out of 23 swimmers in the 200-yard freestyle race (1:42.85). Wilson was the only other Claremont swimmer to compete in an individual event, taking 19th place in the girls 500-yard freestyle event (5:21.70). The Wolfpack girls 200-yard medley relay (Gao-Hagen-Wilson-Bletcher) and the girls 400-yard freestyle relay (Bletcher-Wilson, Hagen-Hine) teams also competed on Tuesday. The 2 groups finished 24th (1:59.26) and 21st (3:53.70) respectively. Two wins remaining for back-toback boys tennis title The Claremont boys tennis team has been clawing to the playoffs with one goal in mind—a back-to-back championship to go alongside its 2009 title. The Wolfpack came one step closer to its goal on Tuesday, making short work of La Quinta with an impressive 15-3 win in the CIF Division III Boys Tennis

quarterfinals. CHS defeated Vista Murrieta (16-2) and South Torrance (13-5) in the first 2 rounds of playoff competition. Clarke Spinosa (6-0, 6-0, 6-0), Alan Leahy (6-0, 6-1, 6-3) and the doubles team of Trevor James/Carter Hafif (6-2, 6-0, 6-1) swept their respective opponents in 3 straight sets on Tuesday. Spencer Ingram (6-4, 6-2, 3-6) and the doubles units of Frank Liu/Scott Donaldson (3-6, 6-2, 6-0) and David Standerfer/Andrew Lieu (7-6, 5-7, 6-3) won 2 of 3 sets. After 2 playoff matches on the road, the Pack will return home to host Lakewood in a CIF Division III semifinal encounter on Tuesday at 3 p.m. CIF Finals give Claremont a shot at state meet More than 10 athletes from Claremont High School and the Webb Schools will have the opportunity to qualify for the CIF State Meet when they compete today at Cerritos College in the CIF-SS Finals. Brittany Brown, Kori Carter, Klyvens Delaunay, Paul Ross, Bailey Sanin, Jordan Scott, Katja Whitham and the CHS Girls 4x400 Meter Relay Team, as well as Webb’s Andrew Lantz and Vivian Webb’s Amara Berry will all be competing at the CIF event that begins at 11 a.m.

Patrick Stalwick returns a volley from a player on the Westlake High School boys volleyball team at Tuesdayʼs game at Claremont High School. The CHS boys volleyball team eventually lost the 5 game match which ended their CIF championship hopes.

Carter qualified for 3 events at last week’s CIF-SS Division II Prelims, posting first place in the 100-meter hurdles (13.90), finishing 2nd in the 300-meter hurdles (43.66) and taking 5th in the 100-meter dash (12.28). Whitham hopes

to continue her success in the pole vault by winning event she placed first in at last week’s prelims. In Division IV, Lantz will be Webb’s only male competitor today. The senior hopes to replicate last week’s perform-

ance when he won the 800-meter run in 1:56.37. Results from today’s meet will be included in the next edition of Sporting Life.
